The defeated referendum cannot be put before the people  again until a period of six  months has expired. In the mean  time shifts at the crowded  schools appear to be the'solution. This could entail more  teacher staff and other added  expenses, also extra bus runs  which will add to costs. -  The possibility of using some  of the vacant space in the Reserve school has been suggested, also retention of the present  portables which it was hoped  could be avoided. 7-  Superintendent R. R;! Hanna  described. the referendum as  very disappointing and Chairman Don Douglas said all trustees were of the same opinion.  A letter from Education Minister Brothers. stated that if. the  refereridiim has passed he would  have seen to it that cohstrucY  tion would have been extpedited:  This, said the chairmah;was a  golden opportunity that7 is how"  lost. A two year delay in the use  of buildings proposed would result. Supt. Hanna added- that  now the board would have to do  a lot of work and como up with  some solutions.7;One mentioned  was that the Reserve children  who would have -joined SecheK  Elementary school next year  would now have to wait another  year.

Absent were Trustees Kitson,  .Hough and Thorold, the latter  having phoned to say he would  not be able to attend. Trustee  William Malcolm who completed the quorum, arriving a little  late from- Pender Harbour, was  congratulated to y Chairman  Douglas on his re-election as  trustee.  Four memlbers of the Indian  band at Sechelt attended the  meeting and remained through--  out. A' request from Mrs. Lee  Macey of the Citizen's Organization for Better Education, asking for a copy of the policy on  the duties and responsibilities of  the secretary-treasurer, wias refused. It was explained that at  the previous meeting, an explan  ation was accepted by Chairman  Lome Wolverton of the citizens  organization, unquestioned.

The recommended plan would  include a collection system of  sanitary sewers covering the  populated Porpoise Bay area  and the populated section of the  village as far as Ocean St.  It would require intercepting  sewers from the collection system to a treatment plant site n  the undeveloped land north of  the B.C. Hydro right-of-way, a  primary treatment sewage plant  an effluent pumping station with  standby power and a force main  and outfall from the pumping  station to a disposal point in  Trail Bay.  Estimated   costs   at   present  contractor's prices are:  Collection system $105,000  Interceptors 20,000  Sewage treatment plant    52,000  Effluent pumping station   35,000"  Main to outfall 24,000  Outflal . ; . 26,000  plus 20 percent for engineering,  administration, and': contingencies Amounting to $82,000- making a total of $314,000.; '  -.-The -report suggests1 possible -  financing could* be done-by $125/  000 borrowed Jrom the federal  government of which 25 percent  has in the pasfc been,, forgiven ,  along  with  borrowing  $189,000  borrowed through the Regional  District.  Financing would be done over  - a* 20' year period at 9 percent  with an annual cost for bond redemption and interest at $29,800.  On top of this would be $4,000  for" operation" and maintenance  and $1,000 for administration.  -_' Payable at the time of connec-,  tion to the system,' would be a  $125 connection fee charge.  .; As-there is a present outfall  covering the hospital and the. In-'  dian Reserve, the report states -  it would be in the best interests  of the area as a whole for sewage from the ..village, the hospital and the r Indian band to toe  treated and disposed of in joint'  facilities, and" the village would  make* every - effort to " reach  agreement on a joint scheme  with the Band before proceeding with a second outfall into  Trail Bay. This.system. serving  the Bland and hospital was constructed in 19.4 under a Pollution Control board permit.  A 1964 Martin Dayton report  on sewage for Sechelt recommended the village utilize the  Indian Band- system by enlarging the, output to a 10 inch pipe  1,200 feet long with a minimum  depth in the bay of 60 feet. This  would have cost $107,700 tout  council decided, the recommended plan'was' not-feasible at that  time.   ���  The later Dayton report recommends that .the village should  plan the sewage system so that -  Band, sewage- could eventually  be taken to the Sechelt J_K_Uit.es.  for treatment and disposal.

Swain  and four aldermen.7. tar take a  : good look at councU't relations  with the public.  Council a_ last week's meeting was of the opinion the public had the wrong idea of what  they intend to build on the two  lots obtained for the storage of.  municipal possessions.  Recently tenders were put out  for the clearing of the land but  no one tendered. In the meantime the letters arrived at the  municipal hall from.' people liv-  ingin the vicinity of the proposed structure.  Discussing it, alderimen said  it would he nothirig more than a  garage type structure not more  than 19 feet in height, for storage of park equipment and such  like.  Council has no equipment to .  store and is puzzled over the attitude of the writers of the letters. The need for the building  started about two years ago,  when it .was suggested a leanto  should be constructed in rear of  the firehall for such storage tout  it was not found to toe suitable.  The mayor and aldermen are  going to try and see if their liaison with the public on this matter can be improved. They were  of the opinion the letter writeis  have the wrong idea of council's  intentions.  The Chamber of Commerce  request for the annual grant resulted in the amount being increased from $25 to $75 to help  pay for some of the cost involved in the operation of the Tourist Information' Bureau.

Municipalities.        7  The 17 men-toer UBCM executive, representing 135 municipalities and 10 regional districts  throughout the province, asked  that the provincial government:  ���Give municipalities that are  required to instiall sewage facilities adequate financial aid in  two ways t- outright grants, and  long-term loans at low interest  rates.  ���'Make this financial assistance  retroactive to July 1, 1968.  ������Establish at once the legislation needed to set water quality  standards.  The. UBCM brief on sewage  treatment is a comlbination of  resolutions from several municipalities, all of which were  passed by delegates attending  the UBCM annual convention in  September.  The brief noted that while.  Premier Bennett and several.of  his ministers have issued' press  statements indicating that some  aid is being considered, and that  Health Minister Loffmark is on  the verge of issuing some control regulations, "we have attempted in vain" to discover the  nature of these plans which will  drastically affect most if not all  municipalities. "We believe it  would have been to the advantage of .all if we had been consulted,"' the municipal representatives said.  Endorsing the recent recommendations to the federal government from the Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities, the UBCM brief stressed that additional federal help  to control water pollution should  be sought actively toy the provincial government.   .  This is essential, not only in  the need for control itself, but  also for. the effect such help wiD  have on stimulating the construction of housing by assisting in the servicing of land, the  brief said.  OFFM has asked the federal  gbvernment to extend to 1075  (from the present cutoff date of  March 31, 1970) the forgiveness  feature of its existing financial  aid policy under the National  Housing Act.  ���Part 6B of NHA provides ibr  federal loans to munieipaflties  of up to two-thirds of the total  approved1 cost of building sewage treatment plants and main  collecting systems, and forgiveness of 25 percent of the loans  if the work is completed by  March 31, 1970.  The UBCM brief also endorsed  the CFMM request for increas-'  ing this forgiveness feature and  extending NHA coverage to  trunk water mains and trunk  cofllector. storm' sewers.  And at the provincial, level;  the brief said; "help must be  forthcoming (because) waiter  pollution can only be made effective by financial co-operation  of all levels of government, with  costs basically divided equally."  The problem can toes* be solv-  ed, the brief concluded, if water quality standards are set at  once, and "if the provincial government takes a realistic financial attitude toward maintaining that quality."  HOME DAMAGED  Fire on Wednesday night of  last week caused Considerable  damage to the Granthams home  occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Reg  Phillips and family. Cause of  the blaze is not. known. Th��'in-'  side Was badly charred along  with its contents.

With a more than three-to-one vote Gibsons ratepayers made  certain the sewer bylaw would pass. It dispels any thought that the  desire for progress is a negligible quantity.  The. vote was 77.6 percent in favor on a 41.7 percent turnout, at  the polls. It shows that Gibsons ratepayers have faith in their council and future of the village.  It should also be stressed that Vancouver people were more  than slightly interested in the result of the sewer vote and telephone inquiries received toy municipal officals and others seeking  information on the results_of the.vote certainly reveal that interest.  The school vote  One thing is certain in the defeat of the School referendum and  that is Pender Harbour students will hot have to face split shifts  or secondary accommodation. This will toe the. fate of students in  the remainder of the school district which voted 60 percent in favor  of the referendum.  If Pender Haifbour voters can get some satisfaction out of the  result of the vote they can look at the cost of having to put it again  before the public.  Pender Harbour schools are well supplied with space. Not so  the schools in the crowded school population region south of Halfmoon Bay. Sechelt Elementary and Elphinstone schools will face a  situation no school trustee whether he be green or experienced',  likes to consider.  However, democracy as we know it has had its say. Now the  schoolaboard has to face the future problem of looking after students with limited facilities.  First count of the ballots gave the Pender Harbour section 44  yes votes to 197 no and in the remaining area the vote was 628 yes  to 399. The upper end voted more than 60 percent against while the  southern section was more than 60 percent in favor.  There is another angle which shouldget some consideration and  that is the number of voters in the GibsbnsJSechelt area who did  not vote. As is usual onecan discover^^ that there are many people  who wouM, have voted fb^ if they only man-'  aged to find their way to thep^^ votes in  favor would have changed the result.;;__&_weyer the right to vote  is apparently one that manypeople cilbbseto, ignore. It costs them  money in the long rim.  Three new faces  Three new faces will appear among elected officials on the  school board and in Sechelt's municipal council. For the school  iboard Rev. Barry Jenks topped the Sechelt village poll with 100  votes. Normian Watson, who,has experience as Regional District  board chairman, could be an asset to Sechelt's council. Dr. Walter  Burtnick who will be the Sechelt Rural school trustee replaces  Trustee Cliff Thorold. Whether the change will help the school  board with its problems is one for conjecture at this point.  Trustee William1 Malcolm was re-elected to the school board  and-Alderman Morgan Thompson to hisi council- seat. Defeated was  Alderman Adele deLange. She has no reason to feel she has not  done her job well because she was faithful to her duty and covered her responsibilities with a determination that was refreshing.  So the school board has two new faces among the trustees and  Sechelt's council has one new face among its aldermen. It would  seem that Dr. Burtnick received what looks like a. 100 percent  vote because the three other candidates' total vote was just one"  vote below that of the doctor. One can only hope he will warrant  such support. '���������������'.  Now that the election has revealed what will be the 1969 school  board and Sechelt will look like, one can only wonder what the  year will produce. The situation of the school board and also that  of Sechelt's council will be no bed of roses. The school board is  deep in the space problem and Sechelt's council is being pushed  to get ahead and become more progressive. We wish them both the  (best of luck and the Coast News will as usual do all it can to help  things along regardless of the opinion it may have of members of  both elected organizations. They will all need help.

(By JOHN 5WATOGOR)  Humber iColIege (News Service  Santa.Claus is still a member  in good standing in the Soviet  People's State of Czechoslovakia  In fact, the arrival of tlie jolly saint each year heralds the  official opening of the Christmas season in the unhappy, dissension-torn capital of Prague.  Nineteen-year-old Roman ,Da-  sek, who fled the red regime  along with his family to seek  shelter in Toronto, remeantoers  how, before Ch/ristmas., a Santa  Claus Parade would take place  on the streets of Prague.  It was a meagre parade, with  Santa garbed in the traditional  Communist "red, riding in a sin  gle state - owned automobile.'  There were no lavish floats, no  loud playing bands, no giant  walking clowns such, as those  who each Christmas thrill the  youngsters of Canada.  But in spirit, at least, Santa  was similar to the Canadian version, for Saint Nicholas would  hand out presents from the car,  even to the sullen-faoed policemen patrolling the streets.  Roman remembers how, back  in Prague, his family would assemble in the kitchen to bake  sweet-spiced cookies and dark  chocolates to be used as Christ  mas ornaments for the house.  Czechoslovakia    exports   large .  quantities of intricate glass ornaments., but these are too luxurious for the local citizenry.  On Christmas Eve,- only the  immediate family exchanged  gifts, which were simple and inexpensive. Items with high price  tags were frowned upon, for  this smacked too much of western decadence. So sensitive are  authorities to pro-western fads,  that if any student appears in  school with a pair of jeans, he  is immediately reprimanded and  sent home.  Asked what he believes Christmas should truly be, Roman replied that the holiday should  have a religious meaning, and  be rich in tradition.  Religion in. Czechoslovakia is  something more rare than even  glass Christmas ornaments or  expensive gifts, related 18-year-'  old Peter Pastroek, another fugitive from Communist Czechoslovakia, who is now living in.  Toronto. '   '  .  Peter, who grew up in Novy  Jicin, a small town about 100  miles jFromi Prague, disclosed  that Communists are trying to-.  strip Christmas of all its religious significance. Only in the  last few years, as the Dutocek  Lilacs that bloom!  !By A.R.  Buckley  Plant Research Institute,Ottawa  The lilacs flourishing in the  ornamental gardens and Arboretum of the Plant Research  Institute have long since proved.  that these shrubs may be x successful * planted in the fall.  Right now. in fact, is about the  best time for the job, since the  weather is cool and the soil  moist.   In   spring,   unless   the  planting is done early, there is  some danger of drying winds  damaging the young unfurling  shoots.  __  Lilacs are very adaptable   6-  our climate and to -various uses  by Miss Preston, by Dr. Skinner  of Dropmore, Manitoba and by  hybridizers at the Canada Department of Agriculture Research Station, Morden, Manitoba.  'ft   . *      *  Among the French hybrid lilacs tested at the Plant Research Institute J strongly recommend the following as har-,  dy, of pleasing scent and' color,  and having large trusses of  bloom: -  Single, whites ��� Maud Not-  cutt, White Hyacinth, Mont  Blanc  Double whites ���, St. Joan,  Mme Lemoirie  ,.

Firmament.  *  It is' no small wonder that  over 40 years ago Dr. W.T. Ma-  coun of the Central Experimental Farm launched a program of  lilac breeding ��� a project  carried out by Miss Isabella  Preston and one that eventually  resulted in the famous Preston  group of lilacs made up of varieties obtained by crossing hardy  species. Dr. Macoun's aim was  to extend the flowering season  of these plants. His objective,  with Miss Preston's unique  plant breeding ability, was not  only reached but extended to  the production of cultivars having quite distinctive coloring  and with blooms having -a cascade effect as they hung from  the graceful bushy plants.  As far as. individual blossoms  are  concerned,  the Preston lilacs are not necessarily better  than the  French  hybrids,   nor  were the Preston lilacs bred to.  supersede these older and better  known types. The Preston lilacs,  however, supplement the French  hybrids  by   having   introduced  pinkish tones and flowers that  are either earlier, such as those  of   the   lavender   Patricia,   or  later, such as those in the Preston  Shakespeare series,  which,  among others, includes the var-;  ieties Elinor., Ursula and Guin-;  evere.  On the advice of Dr. Macoun,  western plant breeders also  bred earlier and later varieties  of lilacs by using the same, species, with the result that there  are now many interesting and  attractive Preston: hybrids  available.  *     *     *  If your nurseryman does not  already haye them in stock, ask  him to get for you the following  cultivars-,?listed here with the  color: Coral, pink; Donald Wy-  man, dark reddish purple; Hiawatha, lilac rose; Nocturne, lilac olue; Redwine, wine red1;  Royalty, violet purple; Elinor,  pale violet; and Fountain, with  cascades of light pink.toloom.  These represent about the  best;of the hybrids originated  Blue .

The French lilacs, however, are often grafted  on the common lilac. This  means that at all times a very-  careful watch must be kept for  suckers that arise from the base  of.these lilacs. If these are not  removed they will grow and  eventually crowd out the original lilac cultivar and will replace it by one with much inferior blossoms. However, the  trend among American and Canadian nurserymen now is to  grow all lilacs from cuttings, so  this problem is completely eliminated. Ask your nurseryman  for details and he will advise  you whether or not the lilacs  are grafts.  A few tips about looking after  lilacs. Always remove your; old  trusses of bloom as they fade  so as to encourage the formation of the following year's  bloom buds. Do not cut blooms  below the two shoots that arise  from just beneath the flower  clusters; these bear next year's  trusses. When a shrub gets over  ten years old; remove some of  the older wood completely to  the ground each year so as to  gradually rejuvenate the plant.  governxnient became more liberal, were the churches given  permission to show Jesus Christ  in a manger.  Peter reports that teenagers  often went to church at Christmas, as a foxm of protest.  The only regular church-goers  were the aged, usually in the  middle class, Peter stated. Professional people and government  officials would shy away, knowing that to be seen attending a  religious service would cast a  dangerous stigma on their reputations.  "We  teenagers also went to  church at Christmas;," but not  ���because we were religious,"  said Peter, thinking back. "It  was because we knew that it  was a slap against the government. . .and a demonstration to  protest the large armies of police who surrounded the little  chutiches."  " But they have left their pro-"  tests far behind' them. Both Peter and Roman are looking forward with pleasure to their, first  Christmas in Canada, when their  families can celebrate in the  open, any way they want, as a  happy unit.  N.

Usually ti is a "one sided" disease, since  nerves branching out of the spinal cord spread /l  out on each. side. It is characterized by a vesicular eruption and severe neuralgic pains arising  in the affected nerve root ganglia.  Shingles are more frequent in males and while  it may happen to anyone, it is more common  after 50. After about the fifth day the eruptions  usually dry. up and scab. A painful neuralgia  may last for years. Diagnosis is difficult in the  pre-eruptive stage. A physician, is needed.  Your doctor can phone us when you need a.  medicine.

MURPHY  Dec. 4, 11  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  Phone 886*262-2  DEADLINE, TUESDAY NOON  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied fbi  QUEOTON: I made a deal  with this guy to buy some lumber. We agreed on delivery  dates and price and everything.  He was very jolly about it and  said it was a gentleman's a-  greement and that we wouldn't  sue each other over anything  and so on. Now he didn't deliver  and I. had to buy the lumber  some place else and pay more  for it. Can I sue him?  ANSWER: No. It sounds like  you agreed that in event of a  breach of  contract you would  not. sue. A *erm agreed to by  the parties that the agreement  is not to be enforceable in the  . courts nullifies any notion of a  contract. Either the parties are  entering into a legal contract  or they are not and this should  be. clearly settled at the outset.  Q:   A man owned three lots  side by side and wrote offering  to sell me one for $5000 and T,  wrote accepting the offer. I had  one particular lot, in mind and  he now says.he meant another  lot. Can I force him to sell? '  A: No. It is apparently uncertain what lot you both intended to deal with. If there is  some other evidence showing  you both were thinking about  the same lot it might be different. If you and the other party  become involved in a law suit  over this, the judge at the trial  will not make a contract for you  Q: I sell vegetables in bulk  and I keep a big heap of potatoes in a warehouse. .This man  agreed to buy 50 bushes and we  agreed on a price. Now he got  a better deal and says he won't  go through with our sale because we didn't pick,out a particular 50 bushels. Can I . sue  him?.  A: Yes, assuming the 50  bushels are of the agreed brand,  quality, etc. It,is not important  what particular 50 bushels in  the heap are picked out ���- pro-,'  vided they are all up to the  correct standard. Note ��� this  problem should be contrasted  with the 'previous question  where it mattered very much  what lot- was sold as no two  pieces of land are the same.  Q: I was dickering to. buy a  german    shepherd   from    this  breeder and he went in his barn  and brought out a dog and we  agreed on a price of/$100. Then  he said he made a mistake and  he meant to bring out another  dog. I actually believe him because   he   had   several   similar  dogs in the 'barn and the price  was low, but I want the dog.  Can he be forced to sell to me?  A: Yes. It is not essential for  the formation of a contract that  the, parties be actually of the  same mind. Generally it is suf-'  ficient if they appear to toe in  agreement. It is difficult, if not  impossible for a judge to decide  what a man is thinking or intends to say. All the judge can-  do  is infer his intention. *rom *  his words or conduct. -  Q. A man promised in a letter to give me a car. I passed up  a good bargain to buy another  ear and then he wouldn't give  me the car. Can I sue him?  A. No. We assume you accep- '  ted this offer, but there is appar-'  ently no consideration, that is,  you weren't paying anything or,  trading  anything for  the   car.  In the absence of consideration  the agreement is unenforceable.  UIC problems  Q. I work as a carpenter and  ,am paid on an hourly basis. I  ^usually rate the highest denomination of contribution  ,stamp but occasionally my income is reduced due to poor  .weather conditions. On these occasions my employer has been  placing smaller stamps in my  book and, when I file a claim,  I am not allowed to draw benefits at the maximum rate. Why  .can't I pay the difference between the value of the stamp  my employer places,, in my book  and the value of the highest denomination of stamp, so that  .1 can get the highest rate of  benefit? If my pay period was  .on a monthly instead of a week  ly basis, I am sure my total  earnings would Ibe high enough  to warrant the highest stamps.  . A. It is just not possible for  you to pay the difference, simply because the stamp is based  on earnings and is governed by  a schedule set out in the Unemployment Insurance Act.  However, the structure of rates  of benefit and the scale of contributions are such that occa-  isional reductions of earning  would not significantly penalize  ���a claimant.

Consequently the baby's  finger tips and lips look blue.  The likelihood of a baby being  born with a.he^. defect in  which blueness is a factor is  .'much less than one in 100, according to the Canadian Medical  Association. Before 1949 there  was nothing that could be done  for these babies. Most of them  lived short, unhappy lives, short  o�� breath and unable to cope  with the normal activity, of a  growing child. With the development of the Taussig-Blalbck operation it is possible to create  an extra connection which allows more blood to go to the  lung. This removes the blueness  and the baby is able to get more  oxygen into its blood.and to  carry on much, more like a normal 'child. Several hundred of  these operations have been done  in this country and elsewhere.  ,. In recent years, with the development of open-heart surgery  it has become possible to do a  curative operation. Using the  heart-lung machine, the defects  inside the heart, can be coni-  .pletely corrected with relatively  little risk, the C.M.A., reports:  Some babies have this condition in such severe form that  they have to have the Taussig-  BJalock surgery to help them  live long enough in order to have  the curative surgery.  Voltage to U.S. raise��!  Voltage of the main transmission line between B.C. Hydro  and power systems in the northwestern United States hasi (been  increased from 230,000 to 560,000  volts. Upgrading of the 12-_nile-  long line between Ingledow Siib-  station in Surrey and its connection to a similar Bonneville Power Administration line , near  Blaine, Washington, means that  it can carry four times as much  electric power as before.  The link between British Columbia and Washington was  maintained by a second line  while voltage of the first was being increased. This second line  remains at 230,000 volts.  The BiPA, a member of the  Pacific Northwest Power Pool,  sinuultaneousliy stepped up its  70-mile-lbng transmission line  between Blaine and Arlington,  Washington, to 500,000 .volts.  The interconnection, permitting exchamgesi of larger-amounts  of power between the B.C. Hydro system and the Pacific  Northwest Power Pool .provides  emergency safeguards for (power systems on both sides1, of the  international border. "'  The Pacific Northwest Power  Pool is made up of Utilities providing power to Washington, Ore  gon, Idaho, Montana, Utah and  parts of Wyoming. It in turn  connects with other power systems reaching 'to New Mexico  and California.  B.C. Hydro's 500,000-volt line  between Surrey amd Blaine was ,  completed in 1965 but operated  at only 230,000 volts initially.

In characteristic  fashion, he shouldered the burden of bringing up a family single handed instead of putting  them in a home as he was urged  to do by some of. his friends.

During this  time he built several houses and  undertook other jobs. As was  charcateristic of the man, he  could and would turn his hand  to anything that came along.  In 1930 he moved with his  teenage family to Gibsons in a  back - to - the - land move. Here  again his determination and endurance came to the fore. He  rowed and sailed his boat back  and forth from West Vancouver  to Gibsons, making over 30 trips  to.bring his goods across and to  get established. In the absence  of a vehicle road everything had  to be carried from the waterfront over a long trail, up a  steep hill to his new homesite..  Imagine an ordinary man carrying a stove up that hill! Then  there's a blacksmith'.; anvil in  the old barn! How did it get  there?. ,.  ,  Here he carved a farm out of  the bush, clearing the land with  an ax, saw, shovel, mattock and  a hand operated Kirstin stump  puller. On his hard-won land he  ralsedvegetables of supeifb quality that were always in great  demand. Growing flowers was  one of his hobbies, and his floral donations to various public  and private functions, lent a colorful touch to s these occasions-.

ISABEL   DAWSON  British Columlbia has been endowed with close to 137 million  acres of forest land, which covers almost 60 percent of its land  area.  Merchantable softwood and  hardwoor timber in the province comprises over half, the  Canadian total. At present the  province produces 77 percent of  all lumber manufactured in Can  ada, 82 percent of the plywood,  25 percent of the pulp "and 14  percent of the paper.  OBritish Columbia's standing  timber equals approximately  one quarter of the North American inventory. <  Topography and climatic conditions divide .the province into  two distinct forest regions,  coastal and interior. The abundant rainfall and moderate temperatures in the area west of  the Coast Mountains have given  ..rise to dense stands of large  ; trees, many exceeding four feet  in diameter.  .**> -With the exception of-the Columbia rain forest, which lies in  -.the valleys between the Mona-  shee 'and Selkirk mountains  from Prince George south, the  interior forests are typified by  smaller,? more slowly growing  trees, but covers an area seven  times larger than the coast,  thus equalizing the districts.  The principal species, in descending order by volume,, are  western spruce, lodgepole pine,  western 7 hemlock, balsam fir,  Douglas fir and western red  cedar. -  Douglas fir, due to unique  characteristics and a range limited to the. Pacific Northwest,-  has been the most valuable tree  and, still comnuanding .. a premium  price,   is   the   principal  LEGAL  APPLICATION FOR A  WATER LICENCE  WATER ACT  i    (Section 8)  I, Randolph William Vernon of  R.R. No. 1, Gibsons, B.C. hereby apply to.the Comptroller of  Water Rights for a licence to  -divert    and    use water out of  - Chaster    Creek    which    flows  "south and discharges into Strait  of Georgia and give notice of  my application to   all  persons  affected.  The point of diversion will be  located at Approx. 50' south of  the NE corner of Lot 7, Blk. 5,  D.L. 909, Gp. 1, N.W.D.  The quantity of water to be  diverted and returned is 50,000  g.a.d.  The purpose for t which the  water will be used is Trout  pools.  The land on which the water  will be used is Lot 7, Blk. 5,  D.L. 909, Gp. 1, N.W.D.  "Y A copy of this application  was posted on7the 2nd October,  1968 at the pipposed point of  diversion and on the land where  the water is to be used and two  copies were filed in the office  of the Water Recorder at Vancouver, B.C.  ^Objections to this application  may be filed with the said Wa*  ter 'Recorder or with the Comptroller of Water Rights, Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.,  within thirty days of the date of  first publication.

Virtually 93 percent of the  forest land in the province is  owned or administered by the.  provincial government. , The  largest tract ,of privately held  forest land is situated on Vancouver Island and held by the  E. & N. Railroad.  Forest management in British Columbia is guided by the  principle of sustained yield,  which dictates _ that timber depletion shall not exceed the forests' ability to/reproduce sound  wood.  Forest-based industries form  the most important segment of  the provincial economy. The industry directly employs nearly  80,000 persons, which is approximately 11 .percent of the  employed labor force, and pays  salaries and wages in excess of  $400 million.  Recently there has been a tremendous expansion in the pulp  and paper industry, with emphasis on the construction of  new kraft (sulphate) pulp fa^  cilities.      ' - '"''   "      7*7 Y  Foreign investment has playr  ed a prominent rote in; this ^expansion. British, American, Ger  man, Swedish, Finnish, Japanese and Danish capital and tech  nological and marketing know-  how have combined with Canadian capital to provide a firm  base for an industry that makes  its way in the international market place.  Frauds start  investigation  The Uneimployment Insurance  Commission will be launching  an intensive educational program to inform' Canadians of  their rights under the Act as  part of the new crackdown on  fraud against the fund.  "The basic concept is that all  insured Canadians are entitled  to benefits, and it will continue  to be one of our prime objectives that everyone receives his  full entitlement when due and,  receives the best possible service^" said J. M. Desroches,  chief commisioner.  "However, as administrators  of the fund, we also have the  duty and responsibility, to. ensure that fraud is minimized."  The new campaign of benefit,  control grew out of a consultant.  study which used scientific methods to locate the specific areas where the incidence of fraud  is JugJiest. Working .in ,conjunc,-.  tfon wTtlT commission staff, the  consultants  devised  new techniques designed to curb fraud in\  these particular, areas.  "However- the commission is  not instituting an authoritarian-  program. Unemployment insurance was designed to fill a specific need and over the years  has become a vital facet of our  social program," said the chief  co_n_niisioner.  CROSSWORD   ->->->    By A. C.
