Array Provincial Library,  Vlai.oriaf   B.   C^ '/' Y:.  SERVING   THE  GROWING i SUNSHINE   COAST  Published  at Gibsons,   B.C.  Phone M6-2622  Volume 22  Number 4, January 29, 1969  10c per copy  This year's school budget covers a possiible expenditure totalling '$1,878,960 and is only $25,-  775 above last year's, budget in  spite of-a more than $50,000 increase in teacher and maintenance staff salaries.  This was announced at the  school board meeting Thursday  evening of last week by J. ST.  Metzler secretary. - treasurer,  when Chairman Mrs. Sheila Kit-  son turned the board rii'eeting  over to budgiet affairs.  Atvthe sametiriie Mr. Metzler  said he expected the tasr-^rate  will be about Tthe same als ?that  of last 3^arY34.98 mills.     7Y  In tryingvto [keep the budget  in line with7 department entitlement the 'board has reduced..last"'  year's over-entitlement of $478,-  677 down to $275,l'52y .       \  As a result1 of departmental  regulations when a school board  goes over its budget entitlement  figure, the board will have to  use one of two methods to gain  approval of this budget.  One will be to get approval of  the two municipal councils "for  the amount-, or seek from the  public approval of a bylaw to  provide f o_V the additional  amount required.  With   the'' announcement   by  Hon.YD. L: Brothers, education  minister of an increase of 3%  percent to the basic budgetting  -program   of .-.-a  10  percent   increase over last year's budget,  this has cut the over-entitlement  ���to$227,753 bringing the budget  "closer   to  department   require-  mentsY\Y [-.yl ������.:���..������  i Account? totals foi* the various  sections of theTbudgei show the  following figures with last year's  amounts in parenthesis:  Administration $104,311 ($107,-  268); ;iristructiori7$l,090,690 ($1,-  019,791); operation $2201465  ($221,052); repairs arid maintenance $10-3,015;   ($1!38,885);   mak  ing a total for operating expens*  es of $1,5-11,481 C$l,486,��77).  Further accounts show: Com  veyance of pupils $85,250 ($85,��  900); auxiliary services $1_?,67Q  ($9,920). Non-operating expensesr  in this paragraph total of $97,*  920 ($95,820). Y "   Yf  Debt sehrices: 7 $1)99*489 ($174t*  78il); non-shareable capital $100d  ('$87,542i); riiaking the debt arid  capital section total 7 ;$200,48|  ($262,323). The non-shareab%  capital of $i;OQ0 is to provide;  equipment for schools. j  While the budget has been  pared asJow as the board could  make it, Mr. Metzler said that  with expectations of a possible  235 more pupils it would appear  as though the only way to keep;  within the budget is to put more}  pupils in the same number-of'  rooms now in use, otherwise it:  would require seven or eightj  more teachers. X  Commenting on last year's ex-;  Pam Boyes new Jobies Queen  On Saturday night, Jan. 25,  Roberts Creek Masonic Hall  housed the public installation of  Honored Queen-elect Pam, Boyes  and her officers. The installation which started at 8 o'clock,  was witnessed by a large crowd  which was a pleasant surprise  considering weather conditions.  A ^number of' problems arose  before the installation which resulted in shifting of positions'  among both officers in the Job's  Daughters Bethel and the installing team but when-itrcame  Vme for the ceremony "itself ev-  e -ything: went like clock work.  The-ttfeme for the"cereinbriy  w^s prayings hands. .-Each of the  g'rls .carried a plaque made of  purple felt and white plaster  praying hands. At the back of  the hall was,a large replica  which was lighted with a special  light for each girl.  The lower hall which was used  for a social afterwards was also  decorated with a large plaque  with praying hands and small  models of the theme were used  for :centre-pieces on the tea  taible.   Y    " '.'  Two gold rriodels were on the  head table along with'two white  candles and a -large decorated  cak6. These decorations, along  with the beautiful job done by  the girls, resulted -in a colorful  and inspiring evening. Thanks  go to all who helped make it a  success.  Elective officers: Honored  Queen, Jam/ Boyes; senior and  junior princesses, Wilma Mandelkau and Glenys MacLeod;  guide, Darlene Lawson; and  marshall, Elaine McKenzie.  Appointive officers: recorder,  Faye Reid; treasurer, Candace  Harrison; chaplain, Pam David;  librarian, Juanita Chamberlin,  and musician,: Candy McPhedran (proxy).,Senior and junior  custodians, Cheryl McEwan and  Beverly Roberts; messengers,  Nancy   Millier,   Cathy   Deaton,  Minister plans  June departure  Rev. W. M. Cameron, Gibsons  United Church minister for the  last eight years, surprised the  United Church charge board  meeting Monday night, with a  letter requesting that he be relieved of the charge in June of  this year.  Explaining his reason for desiring a move, Mr. Cameron  suggested that spending eight  years in one place was not usual for a minister and he figured that it was time he gave  someone else a chance to take  over the United Church charge  in this area. He regretted the  idea of leaving the Sunshine  Coast but believed it was time  for him to move on.  penditure Mr. Metzler maintained there was a lack of budget  control resulting in a deficit  amounting to $48,207. Last year's  chairman" Trustee Don Douglas  defended board actions by stating there was a great deal of  budget control last year and  1 hat''it was impracticable to cut  further. .7  TEACHER OFFICIAL  SAYS CHANGE NEEDED  The provincial government  should undertake a thorough re-  [ examination of the school fin-  ' ancing scheme in the light of the  failureof the present finance  formula to adequately meet the  needs of all districts, says the  general secretary of the B.C.  Teachers' Federation. "Any formula that has to be. adjusted  through supplementary allowances is a poor formula," said  C. D. Ovarts.  His .comment follows an an- .  nouncement by Education Minister Donald Brother- that the  government has taken a second  look at its new education finance formula and decided to  make extra money available to  districts faced with serious financial difficulties as a. result of  the fbrmulatv   Y yv.-vy-v  Y ''A-^i>^c7^mula ought to,be  Jdisdarael-f^o3^ entirely  revamp-  ^d;'YOvarissaid.

He reported  the library in a good' position  financially and added he was  not.... in... complete, accord with  recommendations from the Provincial Library Development  commission concerning expansion and the.use of paid employees.  (See editorial on page two)  Here is the report by Mr.  Mainil;  This has been another successful year for the library. The  statements and reports presented amply attest to this. The statistics as shown in the annual re  port of the Provincial Library  Development commission are  satisfying and proof of the efficiency of this institution.  It is gratifyirig to note reasonable increases in the various  sections and divisions of the library: >  (a) Circulation has increased  from 13,007 in 1067 to 13,384 in  1968. ,  Ob):  Adult   subscribers   have  gone from 254 iri 1967 to 267 iri  1196$.

'  These are basic changes and  will alter the structure of our  library and Library association.  I am not in complete accord  with these policies but they are  government policies.  This library has, over the  years, "been successful and a  -source of influence for good  throughout the community. This  has been due to"the^effbrtis^of7  many peopie and of some dr^ri-  izations.

The matter came before the  school board at its meeting  Thursday evening of last week,  ���and it has the trustees puzzled  District Superintendent R. R.  Hanna has no idea how or where  the statement originated. .' The  school board trustees are equally baffled and Secretary-Treasurer J. S. Metzler is in the same  boat.  However to satisfy the teachers association a meeting will  be arranged. Mr. Hanna inform,  ed the board that it was a grave  error to equate education with  money. Mr. Metzler added that  the instructional section of the  budget had been increased.  On another matter concerning  teachers, the board was informed by the department of education of its approval of the Sechelt Teachers Association convention on Friday, March 14.  Schools will be closed for this  event.  The Sunshine Coast Skating  club requested one Saturday  evening per month for adult  skating. The board will advise  the club that. it will see what  can be done about it.  (Principal George Cooper of  Gibsons Elementary school suggested the use of the elementary  school gym' for grade eight and  nine boys until the end of March  The board decided it would be  in order provided no expense  resulted.  Damage at Elphinstone school  costing $10.5�� when a door was  kicked' in caused Trustee Don  Douglas to question fhe fact  there was no proof of persons  responsible. He said the RCMP  picked' up one culprit. He could  not understand why they were  not known.  ��i\uimuunwiunnuniiwiuMiwiuumuininMnuii\imiiini ,1?  SPRING ON WAY?  When winter comes, can  spring be far behind! Maybe  not! However we have robins  in the vicinity and they have  been around now for more than  a week. Some were reported  last week and others have been  seen since almost daily.  With a Red Cross blood donor  clinic scheduled for this community you may be asking yourself ��� why be a donor.  There are many good reasons  but the first one that comes to  mind and a most important one,  is the fact that through voluntary donors Red Cross supplies  blood and blood products free of  charge to any patient in any  hospital in Canada. All blood is  the gift of volunteer donors..  The Red Cross blood transfusion service saved the recipients  in British Columbia over four  million dollars last year.  It is well to remind ourselves  that whenever we 6r a member  of our family may be in hospital  and need blood or blood products, we will receive these free  of charge. If everyone gives  there will be an ample supply of  blood 'when we or a member of  our family needs it.  You can save a life with the  blood you can spare. There will  be a Red Cross blood donor clinic in Gibsons at the Health Centre. Monday.

The substantial  bank balance will of course be  reduced by the purchase of new  books for both the adult and juvenile sections in the near fu-���  . ture.  New provincial policy decisions shall have ",ari important  bearing on this library. Under  the Library Development Commission Quantitative Standards  regulations some of our arrangements and methods will  probably have to be changed:  We may have to pay some personnel; we may have to increase our public and working  space, and after 1970, to qualify  for a provincial grant, the library shall have to receive, a  minimum of $1,000 from the  municipality.  in- the  library   throughout   the  community.  I think that the Gibsons Public library Association is important arid I ani- proud of Thav-  ing been a part of it for these  many years.  Mr. Mainil was re-elected  chairman for a second term.  Mrs. Jean Morrison was elected  . secretary-treasurer, Miss Margaret Stevens," custodian; Mrs.  Val Boyes librarian and Mrs. K.,  Faris, juvenile section. Reg  Adams, retired honorary chairman received an honorary membership and Aid. Ken Goddard  will be ex-officio member of the  board which will also include  Mrs. Paul Harding, Mrs. G.  Corlett, Mrs. L. Fletcher , and  Mrs. J. Mainil. Those resigning  from chairmanships were Mrs  Doreen Crosby, Mrs. M. Emerson and Mrs. L. Fletcher.  Dump road promised  Gibsons - Port Mellon area  luckily were not included in the  weather system which gave the  area from Seaview Cemetery  right through to Powell River  and beyond up to a foot of snow  in places.  Sechelt reports eight inches  over two days and the area towards Pender Harbour about  the same. Powell River was reported to have received about a  foot of snow.  During Monday ,and Tuesday  Gibsons area might have had a  trace of snow but the storm  clouds were clearly obvious out  over the strait, spreading northwesterly and sheddirig new snow  It appeared by noon Tuesday to  be weakening and moving off.  The proper road to the Gibsons and Regional District garbage dumps off North Road will  be opened up as soon as possible as the result of the setting  aside of roads department money' for this purpose.  This information was supplied  the Coast News by Hon. Isabel  Dawson, minister without portfolio in the provincial government.  It is understood the sum of  $12,000 has been alloted for the  work which will do away with  the present road over private  property. The owner of this  property has given pemission to  Gibsons council and the Regional-District board to continue using the present unauthorized  road until May.  A Coast News editorial on  page one of the Nov. 21 issue  headed Memo for the Premier,  asked why the premier could  not give the area sufficient  money from his $160,000,000 surplus for construction of this  road into a dump region approved by his government officials.  Janitors protest!  Can Roberts Creek parents  who use a classroom for meetings after school hours set to  and clean up before they leave?  Apparently  not  according to  an episode that occurred at the  school board meeting on Thursday evening of last week. The  board was informed that the  Canadian Union of Public Employees which represents the  janitor and maintenance staffs,  presented a grievance ,to this  effect which claimed the action  was deliberate and intentional.  Secretary-treasurer . J. S. Metzler said he had convinced union  members that it was not intentional or deliberate.  As a result a motion was passed that in future janitorial service should be supplied as stated in the union contract. This  would mean an expense to the  board. In 'the meantime the  board will await information  from the school to see if the  parents plan to continue holding  their meetings. If they decide  not to the motion will most likely be rescinded.

Administrated culture  The provincial Library Development Com'mdssdon has issued a  policy entitled Quantitative Standards for Public Libraries. It is  presumed to be effective in 1971.  The-policy recommends grants of $1,000 from municipal councils matched by $1,000 from the provincial library commission, a  paid employee or employees, more shelf space for more books, a  list of required purchases (whether needed or not) and a set annual per capita basis for" the purchase of books plus directions for  minimum public and working areas.  If these requirements are not met by March 31, 1971, the penalty will (be that libraries may have to forgo all or part of provincial  support until the deficiency is remedied.  If the opinion of those interested in library work is of any consequence, one is forced to consider saying goodbye to the excellent volunteer effort that has been put into Giibsons well-organized  library.  The chairman of the library board at its annual meeting last  week said he was not in complete accord with the proposed program.  Giibsons library has grown substantially with its volunteer effort. Let it remain so. Keeping administrative hands off small  libraries would be sound advice for the government library Development Commission. Demand has been well supplied in Gibsons  and the thinking of admiinistrative minds should not forget the volunteers. Don't alienate them! The volunteers are worth more than  the money setup proposed by the commission.  Fish will not wait  Coast-Chilcotin member of parliament Paul St. Pierre's suggested change to the Canada Elections act to allow wider use of  the absentee ballot is a necessary move.  Citing the case of the Bella Bella reserve where in the last election only 176 out of 410 Indian adults were able to vote because the  others were involved in catching fish at Ravers Inlet, he urged  that they should have the right to use absentee ballots and vote at  the nearest polling booth to their fishing grounds. Why should they  lose income when casting their ballot? City folk don't.  Fish wait for no man much less elections so even on this point,  one of others he suggested, he has an argument that should receive  something more than parliamentary debate.  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Ted Osborne was elected president of Sechelt's Chamber of  Commerce, and installed by Mrs  Christine Johnston, council  chairman,  This year's Gibsons budget  allows for the replacement of  1,500 feet of a wooden waterpipe  with transite piping at a cost of  slightly more than ��5,000.  School board referendum No.  4 for $339,000, defeated late in  1963 was passed by a 79 percent  vote in favor during a January  vote.  Jack Davis, M.P., speaking at  a Sechelt Chamber of Commerce  dinner meeting held out hopes  for the area obtaining a harbor  shelter. At the same meeting it  was announced the village was  a step closer to obtaining a liquor store.  10 YEARS AGO  Burglars broke into Gibsons  Region hall and made off with  about $400.  Gibsons firemen are experimenting with a siren in vicinity  of Sunnycrest Motors for the upper level area.  The department of highways  has started a program of improvements for the draining system along the highway in Sechelt.  The Bethel Baptist church  building at Sechelt will be used  for the first time Sunday.  A new committee was formed  to take over from the Centennial committee the park grounds  on Park Rd.  20 YEARS AGO  A delegation of ratepayers appeared before Gibsons council  offering a brief on zoning. Council decided to hold a special  meeting to consider it.  The provincial government  has been asked to complete  aibout 300 yards of Porpoise Bay  road with gravelling so it can  be used.  Thei morning mail brings yet  another protest against the  abortion section of the Omnibus  Bill. The Emergency Organization for the Defence of Unborn  Children writes: With absolutely no chance to defend himself  the unborn child (would be)  judged guilty of the crime of  being unwanted, is sentenced to  death and executed.    .  There have been many such  protests. Ofganizatons and individuals in Coast-Chilcotin  have written in anguish and in  horror about the proposed new  abortion law. .  - .   2-      *     *  By the time this column appears, debate on the Omnibus  Bill will probably have begun.  It might even have come to a  vote, although I expect that the  Omnibus debate will be long  and hard-fought with many of  this parliament's members expressing a genuine moral outrage about the abortion law.  I shall be voting in favor of  the Omnibus Bill as a whole  and,, in any clause by clause  examination, will Ibe voting in  favor of the new abortion section and since this will grievously offend many people, an  explanation is in order.  First, what are the changes  proposed. The present ,la(w  makes it an offence for anyone to procure the miscarriage  of a female or any female to  consent to the abortion.  *     *     *  Clause 18 of the Omnibus Bill  on Criminal Code amendments  makes an exception to the rule.  A qualified doctor may perform an abortion in a hospital,  provided that a majority of  members on the hospital's  therapeutic abortion committee  agrees that continuation of the  pregnancy of such female person would or would toe likely  to endanger her life or health.  Therapeutic Abortion Committees are to be composed of not  less than three members, all  of whom must be qualified doctors.  , The definition of health is left  to individual committees in hospitals across Canada. It does  not preclude    consideration    of  danger yto';; a women's mental  health. Neither should it, iri my  opinion, and I would hope the  section could be applied by  these committees in cases of women and girls made pregnant  as a result of rape or incest.  Yfrbviously, this law will make  for easier abortions in Canada.  It has been suggested by one  or two government members  that it is merely clarification of  present law, that doctors have  always had some form of right  to! terminate pregnancies in certain cases but that the old. law  expressed this vaguely. I cannot  see this. The law will make  abortions easier in Canada.  Whether it will increase the  number of abortions is less certain. Desperate women now go  to the illegal, dirty and dangerous abortion mills by the thousand every year. Often they die.  This is a huge, illegal, dan-  ���-.'*'������* *  gerous and damaging racket.  The mew law won't make it disappear, but it should reduce  the scope of the operation.  None of this can ease the  consciences of those who feel  that abortioh is morally wrong  under any circumstances. Some  people consider foetus, at even  early stages of its development,  to be a human being with all  the natural rights of a human  being. There are also those, including many although not all  Roman Catholics, who (believe  that contraception is an immoral practice.  . %  In Ottawa, there are men.on>  both sides of the house who so  feel, and they are now in a  very difficult position. Is it sufficient that the hew law forces  no one into abortion? That those  whose . conscience or religion-  forbids it may continue to abide  by their conscience iand refuse  abortion under any circumstances? Or is the state sanctioning murder?  *     *     *  I feel sympathy for these  men, being fortunate in the belief that abortion is not murder.  Instead, my conscience would  be troubled if I did not vote  for the abortion lawl change.  Abortion? laws weret made by  men,  not women.    Were    the  Point of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  In business when legal problems arise, it is most important  that the correct terms be understood and used. If a partnership  is being sued, one should know  the names of all the partners  and the name of the firm. If a  company is being sued, it is not  necessary to know the names of  the members, directors or officers. A sole proprietorship  would be the same as a partnership.  A company must have the  word Limited or Ltd. as part of  its name. Thus the following are  not companies: Pete's Pluimibing  Brown Bros. Motors, John Doe  & Sons, Mammoth Construction  Co., Richard Roe & Company.  The word company is often used  iri an iniformial way to denote a  business which is not a company in the legal sense. The distinction is important because  the partners in Jones & Bones  Co. are personally liable for the  firm debts but only the company  as such is liable if Jones &  Bones Ltd. is being sued. Some  foreign companies doing business in the province may have  the word Incorporation:, Incorporated or Inc. as part of their  title.  Doe & Roe Grocery is a partnership as is John Smith & Sons  or Smith Bros. ��� it being obvious that there is more than one  partner. Smith's Hardware is  a sole proprietorship.  It is a little difficult to tell  what Jones & Co. or Ajax Cleaners are. The nearest one could  come to it would be a firm. If a  contract of any importance was  being entered into with a partnership or sole proprietor., the  name or names of the parties  should be ascertained.  The correct way of referring  to a partnership in a written  contract would be "John Doe  and Richard Roe, carrying on  business as Central Hardware."  Sometimes the occupations and  addresses  of the partners  are  Copyright applied foi  added for greater certainty.  Similarly, a sole proprietorship  would appear thusly: "Marion  Miles, carrying on business as  Marion Miles Millinery."  Both partnerships and sole  proprietorships are firms. The  important thing Is, before doing  business, get the correct names  and addresses of the persons. It  may be difficult to find out later  when troubles arise.  WATER VITAL  Early settlement of the country depended on water as a  means of access. The plentiful  water supplies of the flat, fertile plains of southern Ontario  and Quebec, the river-borne  transportation of lumber and  later the power of water-driven  turbines, all were vital factors  in the building of a Canadian  nation.  choice -offered, I would support"  the stand of the Commons' lone  woman member, Mrs. Grace  Maclnriis of the New Democratic Party.  Mrs. Maclnnis introduced a  private member's bill which  would have removed allrefef-  ence to abortion from the Criminal Code, leaving the entire  question toYthev decision of individuals iri accordance with  their own consciences. (I assume she would agree that,non-  qualifed persons continue to for  bid to conduct, abortions.)  Mrs.-Maolnnis' bill is uhlikeiy  to reach the floor for debate  in this session. Even if it  should, the chances of its passage would be infinitesimal.  Under the circumstances, the  gbvemmerit's abortion bill  seems to me to offer some relief from the sum7ofihunian  one, smallYweleome withdraw!  of government frorii an area of  private morals, which should  not be the government's business. ��������� '  N.

A recent correspondent to your paper has  stated that it is worth $100,000.  That may well be so, but it  should not foe descrilbed as an  asset to most of the taxpayers,,  who have no use for it but still  have to pay to maintain it. The  word, I believe, is White Ele-  plant.  All this drum banging about  bringing in tourists, hunters ahd  fishermen is so much promotional poppycock. The people who  really need this area for recreation���and who spend' the most  money in it ��� are people with  families and they use cars and  boats to get here, not little  planes. Boat marinas are mostly privately run, wharves are  federally owned and maintained,  cost of ferries is spread over  the entire provincial tax field  and bus terminals are comimer-  cially operated. Then why pick  on the little local taxpayer to  subsidize the.'wealthiest traveller of all ��� the private plane  owner? Give the airfield back  to the federal government or the  provincial government (if they'll  have it) and thus let all those  who use it share the cost of running it.  To say we must look to the  future is also beside the point.  Traffic using the airport has increased biitlittle iri the years it  has been operating and there is  little indication of any great  change for many more years1.  But this is not the real issue ���  even if the demand for its amenities mushroomed it would still  be quite wrong fto put the' onus  for its maintenance upon the  local taxpayer alone. This is  the essence of the argument and  should not be lost sight of be  hind' all the side issues and ir-  releyancies that are being dragged out at this time. ,  ���Terra Firana.

MUIR,  Supervisor of Tendering  The parliamentary standing  committee on .privileges and  elections will study a motion to  introduce absentee balloting in  federal election, introduced to  commons Monday by Paul St.  Pierre, Liberal member for  Coast-CMlcotih.  .The vote to refer the motion  to committee came at the end  of the one-hour debate on private members' motions. Spokesmen ' of Conservative, New  Democratic and Liberal parties  supported the St. Pierre motion. Andre Fortin, Ralliement  Creditiste member for Lotbin-  iere, supported the principle of  absentee balloting but opposed  a section of the St. Pierre motion relating to armed services  voting.  The motion contained three  sections. One urged the government to provide an albsentee balloting system for the fishermen, loggers and other mobile  workers who are disenfranchised by lack of opportunity to  cast absentee ballots. .  St. Pierre said a glaring example of the failure of federal  horse and buggy electoral law  to serve voters was at the Indian village of Bella Bella where  only 172 of 410 registered voters  cast ballots last June. The fishing fleet, he pointed out, was  100 miles distant, taking advantage of the Rivers Inlet salmon  run, on both advance and regular polling days.  The second section of the motion recommended that Untied  servicemen's votes be collected  as previously bint be called absentee ballots instead of armed  service ballots. This, said the  Coast-Chilcotin member, would  relieve  a  discriminatory   situa  tion in which servicemen, alone  among the Canadians, are identified in election returns (by  party preference.  A third section of the motion provided a similar "system  for the casting of absentee ballots by members of diplomatic  and trade missions abroad.  The latter two sections were  opposed by Creditiste Fortin,  w_io charged that many armed  service votes are now cast  fraudulently. St. Pierre, he said,  was like a lobster, moving one  step forward but two steps  back. The absentee ballot would  be an improvement of the Can-  acjian electoral system, but retention of fraudulent voting  methods for the armed services  was a backward, move.  Others supporting the Stl  Pierre motion were Roibert Mc-  Cleave (Progressive Conservative, Halifax-East Hants) David  Groos (Liberal, Victoria), Barry Mather (New Democratic  Party, Surrey) and Gerald Cob-  be  (Liberal,  Portage.)  McCleave suggested a system  of postal ballotting be also in-.:  itroduced to accommodate people unable to go to polling stations because of age or infirmity. Groos suggested the committee should ensure that servicemen's wives abroad were  given the same voting rights  as their husbands.

For example, certain cases of  severe high blood pressure are  due to tumors of the adrenal  gland. With the removal of the  tuanor, the blood pressure returns to normal. Certain abnormalities of the heart or major  blood vessels can be the cause  of hypertension, and with correction of these conditions, by  surgery,, for instance, the blood  pressure in many cases returns  to normal.  If the high blood' pressure is  due to severe and chronic kidney disease, the outlook is not  so good.  In other words, in some cases  high blood pressure is not a disease in itself but a symiptom of  some underlying condition. All  cases of hypertension have to  be considered individually. Complete, physical examination must  be carried out, with any necessary diagnostic procedures such  as electrocardiograms, x-ray for  heart size, and kid!ney examina-  Coast News, Jan. 29, 1969.       7  tions Only after complete1 assessment of the individual case  can the doctor mafce a definite  diagnosis, prescribe proper  forms of treatment and make a  reasbhkble prognosis or outlook  for that particular case.        :  >romise, a  Parliament ��� heard more details about Coast-CJhilcotin's fish  Monday night, during a debate.  on a private member's motion  for institution of an absentee  ballottihg system in federal elec-:  tions.  Paul St. Pierre (Liberal,  Coast-Chilcotin) spoke in sober  tones about a recent salmon  fishing expedition to demonstrate the virtues of compromise ��� the meeting of two  intelligent men.  The Hansard report of tflie  MP's statement follows:   ; /  One or two hon. members  have expressed an interest in  fishing in my constituency. Fortunately I had an experience  recently that I think points up  spendidly the value of compromise fin human- affairs. I  was fishing for salmon and I  caught a 14-inoher. which by  our systeni of "measurement is  an extremely large fish.  Mr. Pringle: That is between-  the eyes!'';.,'  Mr^^t:yFierre��mss, Ytfgtween  the eyes. Unfortunately I did  not weight it. My wife had a  camera and took a black and  SHARE YOUR  GOOD HEALTH  BE A BLOOD DONOR  white picture of it, and the negative alone weighed seven  pounds! I was mentioning this  to Jim Chambers, the head of  the fishermen's union at Powell  River, and he said, "What was  the size of the fish, Paul? I  said. "I would estimate it at  about 160 pounds���dressed, that  is," Well, Jim said he had a  big catch himself. He had Ibeen  fishing    just     off     Desolation  Licence needed  With increasing numbers of  snow vehicles of all types, the  youth division of the B.C. Safety Council in their study of the  Motor Vehicle act, stresses two  regulations often overlooked or  unknown to the public, licencing  and permit to operate.  Snow-Mobiles require two  licence plates; other snow vehicles are issued one plate to  be mounted at.; the rear. .First  registration! feEi'"|it and ^licence:  fees are $5.80 for vehicles of  500 pounds, or less and $10.80  for weights from 1 501 to 1,500  pounds.  As well, a permit to operate  must be obtained from the local  chief constalble, or in unorganiz-  districts from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The permit is free, but it must be carried by the operator at all times.  The world's only captive boar-  fish can be seen on display at  the Vancouver Public Aquarium.  Sound, near Refuge Cove, which  was   first  mapped by   Captain  George Vancouver of the ship  Discovery in 1792. Jim was fish^  ing very deep and snagged  something on the bottom. When  he brought it up he found he  had snagged the binnacle lamp  from Captain George Vancouver's ship Discovery. You can  imagine his surprise1, Mr.  Speaker, when he found the  candle in it was still burning.  Now, Jim Chambers and I  are reasonable. Reasonable  men. -We compromised. I took  100 pounds off the "fish and Jim  put out the candle.

Perkins  have returned from California  after spending Christmas with  their family and a vacation at  Laguna Beach.  Mrs. Ron McSavaney has concluded a six week visit with  relatives in Saskatchewan and  returned to her home here.  Here from Bellingham for a  little snowballing and fun, are  Carey and Jim Metcalfe and  Jean and Ted Wayne, guests of  the W. Crockers.  All things are moving with  caution at Roberts Creek. Slippery highways snow-covered  side roads and blocked driveways combine to interrupt sched  ules. It is wise to phone before  attempting to attend a stated  meeting.
