Jack Davis,  minister of fisheries and Paul  St. Pierre, Coast-Chilcotin MP,  for their help, in 6btaining by  lease., control of the .government  wharf and floats. Also if such  agreement was made, that they  be allowed to look after and  control the leased wharf and  floats.  Mayor Feeney said council  had nothing to do with what.has  happened' to parking on the  wharf. It was settled between a  department of transport official  and ROMP cpl- Biggemah. The  mayor maintained there should  have been more discussion before such ^action was taken.  Capt. G. H. Lee wrote asking  that council hold a parking spot  for him if any are to be available. Another letter went to the  department of transport disapproving the no->parking move,  adding it was' no improvement.  Aid. Wally Peterson who. said  he knew of no interference with  traffic from boats, added that  it was odd that parking had  been ignored for 35 years.  The. present wharf act does  not allow" parking, yet it was  arranged that spaces for ten  cars would be allowed for loading and unloading which council  members viewed as a form of  parking.  Another move to get action  out. of J. H. Unland in cleaning  up-his property on Gower Point  road near Prowse Road has  .started.; He will receive a mandatory 60 day notice to get busy  or else. Solicitor J. Emerson,  council's new legal representative, after checking over the  case, decided action was necessary. 7  The regional health department has informed council that  cedar septic tanks can be used~  as a temporary measure in  areas where the village is plan*  hing to instal sewers within a  reasonable time.  investigation  Sechelt NDP head  issues statement  WINNER.of the Kiwanis draw for a free trip to Reno was Clyde  Higginson, Selma Park.

The facts of the situation  /should be put before the local  'community. First, the past year  land a half have seen a substan-.  tial increase in police brutality.

A ���department of municipal  affairs"'; 1stter informed board  members that the only type of  tax collecting they can do is  by mill rate only. The letter  pointed ;' out that undefr any  other method, coliection.r.of overdue taxes based on other than  a mill rate would; mean that to  collect they would have to take  court action.  Secretary Gooding said he was  concerned about the implications in the letter from the minister of municipal affairs. The  board, he said, will appreciate  that this'matter is very serious  when it is considered in conjunction   with   our   water   supply  He thought. a solution can  only; be achieved politically and  to1 hammer away any further at  the department of municipal affairs, would'be useless and might  well spoil the excellent co-opejra-  ��� tion that exists between the Re-  7 gionalYdistrict and thatdepart-  ; ment. The matter is urgent arid  he suggested the board appoint  a committee /with power to aict  ��Wto^>$^^  ��� ���' Tprofl^^  vert'dn and Directors Frank West  and Cliff Gilker were appointed  Under published regulations  tax rates are outlined in the  garbage collection and water development bylaws.

These rates were  approved by the department of  municipal affairs previous to the  presentation of the bylaw for  public vote, which approved the .  bylaw with a good majority.  Now the department argues  regional districts cannot use the  assessment organization for collection of such taxes. It is left  on its own and where taxes are  delinquent, they will have to go  to court for collection. This, directors argued, had the effect  of impeding the objective of regional districts in nullifying tax  collecton means by other regulations.  systems.

Slow mails criticized  rate on garbage  A mill rate for; garbage collection service was recommended to tlie Regional District  board at its meeting Friday  night of last week. It was not  recommended on a permanent  basis but as a temporary method of obtaining garbage revenue until something better  comes along. Director Cliff  Gilker of the garbage committee reported to the board in  place of Director A. J. Rutherford who was unable to attend  the meeting.  The board after acceptance  of the mill rate as a basis for  collecting revenue recommended that tenders be sought from  those interested in garbage collection and it is likely the term  of the contract will be for three  years. This was thought to be  a suitable length of time to allow those working on such a  contract to arrange, for the  purchase of necessary equipment. There would be a collection every second week with a  two garbage can allowance for  each user. Garbage beyond  that' amount would have to bo  arranged for with the collector.  The situation at the various  dumps follows: Sechelt ��� This  dump has been cleaned up,  garbage buried and a new  trench for fill has been cut.  Better weather conditions are  awaited before work starts on  the approach road.  Pender Harbor ��� A contract  at $100 per month for maintenance of the Garden Bay road  dump has been entered into  with W. Harper, of P. K. Rentals, which calls for road maintenance and clearing garbage  with the aid of a cat tfvice (  monthly. Directors said they  could not see how it could be  done  cheaper.  West Howe Sound (Gibsons  area) ��� This dump is now in  use and roads department have  men at work preparing the  entry road to the dump.  Secretary Gooding reported  that as regards new dufmps  there are no suitable sites within jurisdiction of the Lands department. He intends to discuss  new sites with the Forestry'department.  Problems arising from the  Feb. 22 vote on the expansion of  the hospital, came before the  Regional District Hospital board  at Friday night's meeting last  week. They concerned slow mail  delivery and mechanics of the  regulations covering the referendum.  On the subject of mail Secretary Charles Gooding reported  that instructions to deputy returning officers at the various  polls were mailed on Friday.,,  Feb. 14, and when he delivered  the ballots on Wednesday, Feb.  19 he found that some of the  D.R.O.s had not deceived their  instructions. They were actually  received next day, Thursday.  The secretary's report added  that this poor service coupled  with the loss of the evening mail  collection warranted action by  the board in the form of a complaint to the postmaster general'  and Paul St. Pierre, MP for this  constituency. The same letter  will be sent to the superintendent of post offices in Vancouver. Mr. Gooding maintained in  receiving mail in the late afternoon it was not possible to get  out answers the same day.  On the mechanics of the referendum regulations, Mr. Gooding pointed out that the referendum was submitted to the public under the Regional Hospital  District act which in turn calls  for the vote to be conducted under the Public Schools act and  the quashing period (for objections to the vote) comes under  the Municipal Act.  Continuing his report, Mr.  Gooding said that there are. now  four vote procedures in effect,  federal, provincial, municipal  and school board plus a rather  informal system applied under  the Water Act for improvement  districts.  He could see no reason for the  Hospital Districts act to further  complicate matters by applying  School Act procedures to a regional district which normally  operates under the Municipal  Act. He argues that the polling  procedure of the Municipal Act  is detailed and clear and should  be made applicable for use by  the  Regional Hospital District.  Mr. Gooding also pointed out  that while the Regional District  board was responsible for Hospital board administrative costs  ^ the cost of the referendum was  a matter for the BCHIS.  Mr. Gooding explained that no  authorization has yet been received for the Hospital board to  borrow money and as the Regional board had specifically  gone on record that no Regional  District money was to be used  for Regional Hospital purposes,  debts incurred in connection  . with the referendum have not  been paid.  The Hospital Board was informed that if the Regional District Hospital budget was received back from BCHIS in' time it  would be presented at the March  28 meeting.  The board decided to form a  committee to look into the problems facing the board as shown  in referendum legalities and  strive to find out who would be  the best person to write to for  some amplification and correction.  The board learned that architects for the hospital will start  work on plans March 7 with the  likelihood of a start on actual  construction work coming in  May.  Secretary Gooding reported  the referendum vote recorded  94 percent in favor. The board's  vote of thanks went to Director.  Hubbs and his committee for  the work on publicising the is-.  sue. The press was included in  this vote.  How did this get out of hand?  It was not the fault. of the Sechelt Indian band. The attorney-  general of B.C. 'was notified by  Clarence Joe who also notified  pRCMP officials.  The only issue is police brutality. That is the one issue.  There have been in the last few  weeks personal attacks ; on individuals by people .whose sole  treason.: is_to coyer this up for  personal  and political  reasons.  The first attack; was. against  Tom .Berger. /The; insinuation  ���' was made: in 'the7Sechelt--press  that he was taking up the cause  ���of the Indian because it was politically expedient. The fact is  that Berger is one of the few  lawyers and MLAs who has consistently fought for the rights of  the Indians of B.C. He must  have been well aware that there  would be a white backlash of  fascist   condemnation.   He   had  letters to editor  Editor: For some months now  I have been concerned over the  question Mr. Tom Berger broke  over news media on Friday.  When, last fall, I saw two of our  pupils with black eyes and  bruises and asked them what  happened they told me their  story. I discounted the story as  the type of running into a door.  As time went on and other  pupils of the school told me similar stories, such as the 15 year  old boy being taken from the  home while all other members  of the family were absent I began to give credence to these  stories.  After conversation and observation I wish to state that I believe these charges to be true  ��� here in our wonderful country of Canada?  I feel so strongly about this  that I have written both our  provincial and federal representatives.  If anyone wishes to query me  my address is 1732 Marine Dr.,  Gibsons and my phone number  886-9981. Thank you.  ���Eileen Glassford.  Editor: I have been concerned for some years by the lack  of respect for the ROMP., felt  not only by the young people  tout by many of the adults too.  This is a very unhealthy situation and maybe we should  stop and take a look at ourselves. Is it that the RCMP just  dsn't the fine force it used to be  and is not any longer attracting  the right sort of men, or could  it be that because of our disrespect for the law we look  down upon law-enforcement of  ficers and are creating the very  situation that we deplore?  ���Maryanne West.  the integrity to take this issue,  head on regardless of the political consequences.  Tlie next attack was on Clarence Joe, band manager of the  Sechelt Indians. The attack was  made by important non-Indian  persons in the town of Sechelt.  He was the one to take it to the  attorney-general. The only conclusion that we can come to is  that they were made to cover  ���up the actions of the RCMP in.-  Sechelt.  The Indians have for years  been accused of apathy in this  area. However the minute they  try to use political action to improve their lot they are attacked  by a hostile Sechelt press. The  Indian people have been here  for at least 5,000 years and  those who live on the reserve  can judge for. themselves what  is best for them... .'���  ,.. _ Neither attacks by individuals  or by a hostile press should  cloud the facts. Let's have an  impartial investigation now to  expose them to the people of  B.C. and Canada. '���'*"'-  ���Wayne Clark.  ���Don 7 Lockstead,   NDP  candidate for Mackenzie constituency  .. speaking at a Sechelt NDP meet  ing, Saturday, March 1, urged  ���strong support for Indian residents iri the Sechelt area in their  efforts to obtain just treatment,  from local RCMP.  Y The meeting passed thefollow-  ���ing resolution: That the Mackenzie constituency association  of the NDP go on record as supporting the action of ,Mr. Tom  Berger, NDP for Vancouver  Burrard, in his action in the legislature, Friday, Feb. 28, and  that this associaton shall stand  ready to support the people of  the Sechelt Indian reserve in  their efforts to obtain justice.  Magistrate Charles Mittlesteadt who has had experience  with Indians who have come  before him has reported that he  has never received any such  complaints.  Mayor William Swain of Sechelt said he believed tbat  charges made by NDP Tom  Berger will not be backed uo  by most Indians on. the reserve.  Name committees  On the two most important  committees of the Regional District board this year, water and  garbage, are Chairman Lome  Wolverton, and Directors Frank  West, cliff Gilker and A. J. Rutherford for water and Directors  Cliff Gilker, Harvey Hubbs,  Frank West and Chairman Lome  Wolverton for garbage.  These two committees are  likely to be the most active, the  one to get the water system under way and the other to get  the garbage collection system  working.  Other committees are: Finance, Directors West and Rutherford; planning, recreation  and park matters, Directors Gilker, Tyner, Mayors Fred Feeney  and William Swain of Gibsons  and Sechelt; airport, Directors  Gilker, Hubbs and Rutherford  and liaison with other boards,  Directors Hubbs and Tyner.  Secretary Charles Gooding reported accounts for last year  have not yet been audited but he  anticipates a surplus of around  $3,700. He added the annual  budget bylaw and the capital  budget bylaw will be prepared  and possibly ready for board  members at the March meeting.  He reported that applications  for the post of accountant numbering 11 had been received.  They will be referred to the finance committee for action. Serving the Mt.

Let's hear all of it  A note of caution appears to be general as regards the charges  which TV announcers said were hurled across, the floor of the legislature by Tom Berger, MLA and seeker of the leadership of the  NDP party. The charges involved allegations of what was labelled  as police brutality by RCMP at Sechelt on members of.the Sechelt  Indian band.  As there are two sides to every allegation it might be wise to  hold judgment until both sides of the case have received a hearing.  The term police brutality is a catch phrase these days and calls  for investigation before the allegation can be pressed home. Let's  have that investigation! '  Maybe Mr.West was right!  Under the heading Joint Development has Merit, an editorial  in the Campbell River Upper Islander outlines an idea which was  broachd more than one year ago in this area. First read the Upper  Islander editorial:  "A new term, joint development, has appeared in the jargon of  local government here. To many the term seems ambiguous but to  others it means that Campbell River might finally get some of the  facilities it so desperately needs.  "In the past both district council and school board have progressed on a more or less independent basis spending taxpayers'  money as*they best saw fit. By and large tooth levels of local government have, been successful in achieving their goals but with the  advent of tight money, it has become increasingly difficult for  either to provide facilities essential to this community.  "School trustees have been fighting a losing battle with the  Department of Education in Victoria to get a gymnasium for the  senior school and council has been finding it equally difficult to procure funds for a sports complex, new district office and other  capital projects. The emergence of a system of mutual co-operation  and joint development between school board and the district muni- ,  cipality to finance public facilities would thus appear to be a natural evolution.  _ "Senior officials in both council and school board expressed enthusiasm recently in establishing. a, system ;;^-'':^utj^i;.co-o_^i:at;ion. ,  Areas mentioned where joint]development co^  parks and school playgrounds, a general sports complex, a conven-  tion centre and library facilities.  "The inaugural meeting of the parks and recreation advisory  committee emphasized strongly the need; for joint planning and  development of school and municipal resources. It was clearly evident at that meeting that many recreational groups were not satisfied with the type of sports facilities available in Campbell River.  Many expressed the viewpont that tax dollars could be put to better use of the municipality as a whole were considered rather than  the individual interests of council or school board.  "We feel there is merit in this viewpoint and hope that both  council and school board lose no time in forming a committee to  make joint development a reality here. The taxpayer has nothing  to lose and perhaps a few key facilities to gain." (End of the editorial.)  It is likely that most Coast News readers can recall the efforts  about one year ago by Frank West, the then chairman of the Regional District board, to get some form of co-operation under way  between all elected officials in this area. His main objective was  to get a plan of priorities set up to ease the impact of necessary  financial involvements that faced the Regional District board,  school board, and municipal councils. He proposed further meetings for progressive development.  '."������:    A REVIEW  By ED THOMSON  Harry Roberts, well known  along the coast as Captain  Ohack-Chack, philosopher, author,, painter, master -mariner,  builder of boats and homes, father of six, a former resident of  Roberts Creek, now at Billings  Bay on Nelson Island, has just  published his second book, The  Natural Laws Inherent in Man,  a probing sequel and extension  of a workable philosophy outlined in his previous book, Trail  of Chack-Chaek, published last  year.  It is from the author's wife,  Marjorie, who assisted her husband in writing both books, we  get a clue to the inner motiva- -  tion that runs like a bright  thread through this remarkable,  man's writing. In her introduction to the Natural Laws, she  quotes Roberts, "It's no use doing . anything in which you can't  give your best labor, because it  will never give you the satis-  facton of real achieve_l^ent.',  As a young lad in his native  Scotland, Roberts through his  grandmother, came to know the  400-year old prophesies of Mother Shipton, and well remembers being made to memorize  the prophetic verses, as punish  ment for some childish misdemeanor. As a result of this early training and appreciating that  in his lifetime, all but one of the  prophecies has come true,  prompted the author to preface  Natural Laws with Mother Ship-  ton's words.  The author points out that it.  was not an easy task to write of  %  these natural laws as they^re  interlocking, worMrig and fitting  together, creator, Nature, Man,  the three truths.  . Trust, the first and most important of the natural laws with  its basic feelings of pride, se?  curity or at-homeness are being  lost today in many different  ways. In two world- wars (to  mention only the last in a long  succession)' natural feelings  were wrenched in, wrong patterns, for all men 'were forced  to do what should be naturally  abhorrent. f  Ours., Roberts contends, is a  sick and troubled world, because  we have lost trust in7 each other  as individuals and as nations.  Where there is no trust, there is  suspicion then resentment arid  often hate and from these feelings troubles are compounded  for hate is a killer.  Today, he; writes, our minds  and lives are clogged with a  vast multitude of ideas and  things. "TfTwe are to survive we *!  must live more simply, clear our  minds of a lot of unnecessary  accumulation and regain this  quiet knowing of what and whom  we can trust. To begin with, parents heed to know the natural  laws arid gradually teach them  as the child's need, such as  righting a wrong, giving best la^  bpr to receive justifiable pride,  the need for trust and with- it  friendship, kindness, sharing  and the accepting and obeying  fearlessly the law of creative  ideas.  -We were born to create, he  continues. Our souls cannot live  without it and from the natural  pride of achievement comes the  power for a bigger and better  one, and this, applies to every  area of life and^ learning whether it bev a building, a boat or  a better moral code.  Judging from the rich achieved  ments and the peace of mind  gleaned from the observance of  these Natural Laws of life and  conduct, Harry Roberts, sage of  Sunray> his home on Nelson Island, is well' qualified to present  , this montage of lifelong ���.(satisfaction'' and accomplishment and  who now at the age of 85, still  has call on untapped reserves of  vitality and decision.  "Natural Laws", a compact  volume of 28 pages well illustrated and produced by Coast  News, Gibsons, is an inspiring  contribution to all Who seek a  workable and sane way of life  in these troubled times.  2      Coast News, March 5, 1969.

A general meeting of Gibsons  .Red  Cross  branch was  called  off due to lack of attendance.  10 YEARS AGO  A committee of 12 prominent  citizens including school officials, presented the Chant Commission on Education with a  brief asking that grades seven  and eight be included in elementary schools instead of high  schools.  The school board has received approval from Victoria for  a referendum calling for $211,-  000 covering    sites,    additions,  equipment  and   furnishings   for  all schools in  the district.  A legal notice seeking formation of a pound district to curb  roaming cows in the Gibsons  district appeared in the Coast  News.  Wes. B.

(By a Practicing Lawyer)  There are certain underlying  principles of criminal law which  one should have knowledge of  if this field of our law is to  be at all understood.  The Presumption of Innocence  -��� Every person, called... an ac-  - bused or sometimes a defendant,  charged with a criminal offence  ( is presumed; innocent of the offence with which he is charged,  until proven guilty. This means,  he is innocent in the eyes of  the law. This is not a question,  of fact, but a presumption of  law. It is necessary to start  somewhere, and some countries  start with a presumption of;  guilt, for example, France. In  such countries the accused  must prove himself innocent.  The Burden of Proof is on the  Crown: The burden, or onus, of  proving the; accused guilty falls  on the prosecutor. The prosecutor is usually a lawyer and is  hired by the government/ to  handle criminal cases and process them through the courts.  The Crown proceeds first in  court and calls its witnesses,  etc. There is no duty on the  accused to prove himself innocent If he can do so, so much  the better for him.  No matter how strong or obvious a case the crown oan  make against an accused, the  onus does not shift to him in  the sense that he must prove  himself innocent. Obviously  many persons charged with  criminal offences are acquitted  who are guilty, using this term  in a normal or ethical sense.  They are not,. however, legally  guilty. Our criminal law proceeds on the principal that it  is better that 100 "guilty" men  go free than that one innocent  man be convicted.  The Criminal Standard of  Proof: The accused must be  proved guilty beyond all reasonable doubt. Not all possible  doubt, because there would always be some doubt. What is  a reasonable doubt? A reasonable doubt is one that a reasonable person could give a sensible  explanation of. It must be a  doubt founded on some good  reason. It must arise from the  evidence in the case ��� the lack  of evidence. It must not be a  mere whim or imaginary doubt.  This standard should be contrasted with the standard of  proof in a civil case which is  the preponderance of evidence,  or the balance of probabilities.  Thus, the criminal standard is  Copyright applied fo:  much higher. In a civil matter  if the case is    teetering,    the  slightest evidence may cause a  decisiori one  way   or  another.  A criminal case is quite different and in a sense, less difficult  to decide. If there is any reas-on-  ^ able doubt;, however small,, the  ^j^aBcused vfe entitled torthe bene--s  -' fit of it.

CHIROPRACTOR  4 days weekly  Post Office Building Sechelt  Phone  885-2333  Monday, Wednesday,  Thursday, Saturday  12 noon to 5 p.m.  EVENINGS  BY APPOINTMENT  A; sty is a bacterial infection of one of the  small 7 glands on the edge of the eyelid. Though  some people believe it is the result of eye strain,  or a run down body condition, most likely it is  caused by rubbing the eyes with fingers bearing  bacterial germs.  A sty can laLSt from a few days to three or  four weeks. It can cause much discomfort and  sometimes pain. If one persists more than a  few days; it is wise to have your physician  open it and permit this small "abscess to drain  and heal quickly.  Your doctor can phone us when you need a  medicine.

Flagthat Chdlcotin is still here and        Coast TNIews; March 5 ���t96��.      3    .fflnmwwinnnufflirasn���  ST7P|Ef RE,  Coast - Chilcotin  One of the pleasures of reading old letters is the knowledge  that they need no answer.���Lord  Byron.  Pawing through an old moss-  green filing cabinet in Room  101-S looking for a sack of Bull  Durham which I dearly recall  having filed there in September,  my hand chanced upon a late-  blooming Post Office flower, a  tight cluster of old letters. They  may have been answered in  haste but now they may be enjoyed at leisure.  Here are brief quotations  from a few of them:  On Abortion: Was somewhat  dismayed with the conclusions  of your conscience on the abortion issue, Paul, but at least  you have the courage to state  your stand aforehand. Beckon  you have heard all kinds of  argument for and agin, so this  is hardly the time to reform  your conscience. Generally  speaking, it appears to me that  the right of life of a human:  being should never be left legally to the discretion of another,  competent or no.'  On Government: This bloody  business of efficiency is all embracing. You and I have seen  a good hen on a farm, hurry  around and search out the last  bit of food in the failing light,  and then hurry off to roost,  tired but happy. In the interest  of efficiency, man has put that  good hen in a small wire cage,  in a building without windows  and in so doing, man is building  a cage that will confine him  as surely as it has those hens.  On Parliament: Something has  to be done to limit the speeches  made to empty seats ... Debate is one thing. Irrelevant  loquacity is another.  On. High Living? Indians and  Rum: J might summarize by  saying that Canadians are living too damn high and not thinking enough .of the future. I hear  you and Len Marchand are concerned" about Indian affairs.  Well, I wish you luck, but I  think it will take another generation to make real headway.  I have just had a look at the  rum bottle but note that it is  in need of conservation, so have  to do with milk.  Bilingualism and Automation:  I hope the present session is  not going to spend weeks and  months    arguing    about biling  ualism instead of getting at the  more important matters of unemployment, pollution and auto-  mationYY'7  ;-Y!  .' 7  ���l-cst's Debate a New Flag: Be  it known' to all concerned that  I . .. do humbly request our  Parliament to suspend normal  procedure and hold an emergency meetingr to study the urgent 'matter ��� to Remove this  Foreign Flag being used on bur  Flag Poles throughout Canada,  of Canada,Ythe Caiiadiariv Red  Ensign, to its Rightful Place  of Hbnor V ��� - The TV, Radio  and Press will cover this article.  Let us fighfcVfor the Truth;:.- ; .  Oh to Victory.  Foreign Ownership: It irks me  that' a: foreign citizen can buy  a portion of our country. For  example,1 Americans buy ranches,!l summer homes, etc. This  foreign land grabbing inflates  land values because foreigners  are wealthier than the average  Canadian and are therefore  , more ble to pay these inflated  prices. The only 'people who  should be able to buy a portion of Canada are Canadian  citizens.  Progress Report: I can report  have every reason to believe  that- Coast is still there and  haven't heard anyone wondering out loud what the hell their  member is doing. But give us  a late spring and falling beef  price to brood about and we'll  have lots to blame you for.

Only Nature can make a tree  but man can build a forest  It takes nature up to five years to reseed logged forest areas.  We speed up the process by planting carefully nurtured seedlings that are already two years old. To date, we've planted  over sixty million of these tiny trees. We nudge nature in  other ways, too. By thinning trees in crowded areas to promote faster growth. And by waging a constant battle against  the enemies of the forest; fire, insects and disease. The lands  we manage under this intensive forestry programme will  yield up to 40% more wood than nature alone is likely to  produce. Bigger crops of better and earlier maturing trees  will be a source of more products, employment opportunities and prosperity for the people of British Columbia.

Port Mellon  Healtlxiinit presents 1968 report  _�� ��� ��  Forty persons attended a service of dedication of a sanctuary and Sunday School hall at  Port Mellon . Community church  Sunday morning. Rev. W. M.  Cameron of Gibsons United and  Rev. Dermis Morgan of St.  Bartholomew's Anglican churches conducted the order of service which used both Anglican  and United church books.  The church was closed  more, than a year agos. when  the church building was moved to make way for a; huge  reservoir. New premises were  found1 in the former school  building which have been converted for church services. Mr.  W. Hamilton is chairman of the  church board. The first, third  and fifth Sundays at 9:15 a.m.  will be taken by the Anglican  minister and the "second and  fourth Sundays at 7:30 p.m. by  the United church - minister.  Sunday school will open on Sunday next at 10:30 a.m.  DAY OF PRAYER  The Women's World Day of  Prayer will take place Friday  at 2 p.m. in St. Bartholomew's  Anglican church in Gibsons., and  also at 2 p.m. in St. Aidan's  Anglican church, Robert's Creek  At Gibsons the speaker will be  Mrs. Joan Rigby and at Roberts  Creek the Community Singers  swill provide an African spiritual'  Kum Ba Yah.  i in i:ni services  ANGLICAN  St. Bartholomew's, Gibsons  8 a.m., 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays  Holy Communion  11 a.m.., Sunday School  11:15 a.m., 1st and 3rd Sundays  Holy Communion  2nd and 5th Sundays, Mattins  4th Sunday, Family Service  7:30 p.m., Compline and coffee  St. Aidan's, Roberts Creek  10 7 a.mi, 2nd" Sunday  Holy Communion  3 p.m., 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays  Evensong  4th Sunday, Family Service  St.   Hilda's,   See&clt  8 a.m., Holy Communion  9:30 a.m., Church School  11:      a.m., Holy Eucharist  Church of His Presence,  3 p.m., Holy Communion  St. Mary's, Garden .Say  7:30 p.m., Evensong  UNITED  Gibsons United Church  11:15 a.m., Divine Service  9:30 a.m., Wilson Creek  2:30 p.m., Roberts Creek  v A substantial increase in the  j-number of sewage disposal system, inspections was made over  the previous year. It is felt that  the cause of this sharp rise is  due to the implementation of  Sewage Disposal Regulations  approved in August, 1967, and  the public's ever-increasing  awareness of pollution and pollution control. This year, 374  sewage disposal systems were  inspected. ;  ' Unfortunately, growth in some  of our areas will, and in fact,  have been hindered because of  the lack of sewage systems.  Particular difficulties are experienced in Squamish, where  high water tables, affected by  ocean tides, in most of the area  south of the Mamquam bridge,  makes it virtually impossible  to comply with the regulations.  It is noted that the number of  building permits for homes in  the district of Squamish took  a drastic decrease from those  issued in 1967.        >  The village of Gibsons successfully voted 77.6% in favor  of a system of sewers. Whilst  the system will certainly clean  up the many nuisances and  dangers from ineffective septic  tanks and tile fields, the long-  term economical effect with regard to future development  shows great promise. Treatment of the collected effluent  will have to take place before  final discharge into the sea.  Such a collection system and  treatment plant will cost money,  but benefit to the health of the  public and future growth will  more than compensate for the  initial outlay.  Again, greater emphasis is  being placed on the degree of  treatment needed for sewage before discharge to the sea, or  fresh bodies of water. This  health unit is particularly concerned with the degree of treatment because our numerous  beaches, and oyster-growing  areas must be protected as  much as possible, and in the  meantime prevent those areas  free of contamination from becoming ruined.  ... The vision of those who planned the piped" water supply to  service the villages of Sechelt,  Gibsons, and the area between  these villages shows great appreciation of the future potential of the Sunshine Coast, both  as an attraction to visitors and  potential residents, and they  are to be congratulated on their  foresight. Some form of planning is essential to the development of the entire health unit  area, and it is here that the  Regional District boards will  play an important part, if we  are to preserve the inherent  beauty of our area.  ffimSt   Health inspector  1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays  9:15 a;m, Rev.

The obvious positioning for another health inspector would be  in the Health Centre at Gibsons,  so thai the entire Sunshine Coast  could be more effectively serviced. This move in itself would  improve the service given by.,  the health inspector, who are  already servicing the rest of the  health unit out of Squamish and  Powell River.  The tourist industry continues'  to grow in the health unit area,  and whilst the chief complaints  from tourists are concerned  with ferry connections and the  long waits often experienced  during the summer months, the  tourist does expect to see the  beauty of this area unmarked  by deposits of garbage and scattered old bodies of automobiles.  He also expects to find clean  restrooms, clean water and  clean food. Those who stand to  gain financially from the tourist must be prepared to provide  such facilities, as only by doing  this will the tourist industry con  tinue to grow and prosper.  Modern public health as practised in British Columbia is an  expensive procedure, and it is  difficut to assess in terms of  dollars its value. Turning back  the pages of history and reviewing the statistical data for mortality and morbidity of such  deadly diseases as typhoid, diphtheria, and smallpox and then  comparing the complete absence  of these diseases in the statistical data presented later in this  report does show some of the  fruits of an efficient public  health service. /  It is important to remember  that only by constant yiliganoe  can we keep these diseases under control. Active immunization and sanitation programs  are responsible for the absence  of these diseases today, but we  must never be lulled into a  sense of security whereby because of the cost both financially and in terms of staff, that  any attempt should be made to  reduce such programs. With  population growth and the increasing morbidity and mortality from noncommunicable diseases, expansion of existing programs and the planning of new  ones must take place.  Family education  During 1968, close liaison, was  ���maintained with school personnel and all three school boards  gave their approval to a Family  Life Education program, which  covers grades 5 to. 12. The program entails the use of family  physicians at the level of grades  7 and 8. Dr. Anne Lees is carrying out the program in school  districts 46 and 47, whilst the  Drs. Love of Squamish are carrying out the program in school  district 48.  The need for such a program  in our modern society is obvious  Ideally, children should receive  instruction in the home, but  many parents are not sure of  their facts, whilst others are disinterested. Rather than let children obtain their information  from dubious sources, it was  considered that they should be  given the facts about family  life, venereal disease and drug  addiction in a proper manner.  In the short term, it is hoped,  the effects of this program will  be that children will think more  carefully about promiscuity,  drugs and venereal disease before embarking on such courses  of action. In the long term, better educated parents should result, so that they will' be able  to communicate with their own  children about such matters.  Family Life Education, this  past year has been Introduced  in all three school districts. The  program as it is to be given in  the different grades, has only a  few variations for the different  grades.  For grades five and six there  is menstrual hygiene., instructed  by a nurse or teacher.  Grade seven, Family Life Education by a. physician.  '  Grade eight, general revision  of grade 7 program by the counsellor in guidance class.  Grade nine, social disease,  physical and emotional development by a counsellor and medical health officer.  Grade 10 and 11, learning to  live with oneself and one's society. Topics include alcohol,  drugs, and mental health, by a  special counsellor and guest  speakers.  During the course of the year,  frequent requests for some sort  of program for parents have  been received. These requests  have come from all over the  Health Unit. Probably the most  satisfactory method of putting  on such a program would be by  incorporating it in the normal  adult education program as a  series of some five lectures or  so.  Each lecture could be a defin  ite entity in itself and could deal  with venereal disease, drug addiction, and so on. I am sure  that such a. course of lectures  could be easily worked out and  that local family physicians  would be willing to act as resource personnel. Visual aids  and pamphlets' are available  through the Health Centres in  the unit and also from other  agencies, such as the Narcotics  Addiction Foundation of British  Columbia.  - The need for education with  respect to drugs and drug addiction wa�� expressed by school  personnel and students. With  the co-operation of the medical  director, Dr. Hugh R. Williams,  and executive director, Mr. H.  F. Hoskin, of the Narcotic Addiction Foundation of British  Columbia, a workshop was set  up and held at Gibsons on June  18, 1968. School personnel from  all three school districts, toge"-  ther with health unit staff, alt-  tended this workshop, and all of  us felt better equipped afterwards to cope with' the many  questions we are constantly being asked in relation to drugs.  Support grows  for new centre  At the last meeting of the Recreation centre committee at the  Jolly Roger Inn, memlbers expressed pleasure at .the tremen,  dous support shown. Forty-seven  organizations on the Sunshine  Coast have sent letters stating  their approval in principle of  this project! Many offered assistance ���if required. .The Regional  ���board, the- three Chamibers of  Commerce, the school board  and village councils have all expressed their interest and approval.  A meeting is being arranged  in Victoria by Hon. Isabel Dawson and Ken Kiernan, minister  of recreation and conservation  to help expedite the building of  this centre.  7 On Feb. 10, Mr. D. M. Mc-  Cooey met with, the committee  at Roberts Creek and stressed  "the/basic issue of a master plan:  for regional recreation development and the estaiblishng of priorities. This should be done in  conjunction with the individual  committees.  He further stressed that care  must be taken to determine what  s best for this area. He was in  favor of a survey toeing taken.  Such a survey requires money,  and the committee is now in the  process of enlarging its operating fund.  Next meeting will be held at 8  p.m.. March 10 at Sechelt Indian  Hall. Any interested public are  welcome to attend.  Truckers merge  Reorganization of the motorized freight service for the area  between Port Mellon and Pender Harbor is reported under  way and it is believed that the  new setup will be under control of Hansen's Transfer of  Sechelt covering the entire Sunshine Coast Area. Reports covering the Powell River service  say that a transfer outfit in  Squamish will take it over.  In the past the area has had  three trucking services, I & S,  Hansens and the Pender Harbor outfit. Recently that was  cut to two, Hansens and I & S.  February was better  (By R. F. KENNETT)  February 1969 could be considered just fine after the rigors of  a bitter winter came to an end with gradual thawing throughout the  entire month, thus getting rid of winter's white without too much  pain.  Generally speaking, temperatures ranged well below the normal figures. Precipitation confined itself to the first half of the  month and it amounted to only half the normal amount. Sunny  skies and pleasant weather prevailed for most of the last two weeks  in February. Winter snowfall to the end of February was 90.9 incBi-  es, an all time record.

The huge span across Jervis  Inlet will be part of B.C. Hydro's new 230,000-volt powerline  linking Sechelt and the Powell  River area. Each of the line's  three conductors will be anchored to high rocky bluffs on each  shore of the inlet by a 35-foot-  high steel tower.  The new, 53-mile-long transmission line will supplement  service to Powell River now  provided by a single 138,000-  volt line from Sechelt. The existing line has a 10,100nfoot4ong  span across Jervis Inlet.  A $240,000 contract to clear  the first section of the new  transmission line, from Seohelt  to near Earls Cove, has been  awarded to Alpine Clearing  Limited of Prince George. Con-  March food supplies  DEPT. OF AGRICULTURE  Beef: With plentiful.supplies  and strong demand1, little  change in prices is expected.  Pork: Prices are expected to  hold steady.  Chicken: Prices will likely remain firm due-to strong red  meat prices; supplies of broilers  and roasters will be relatively  large.  Turkey: Turkeys of all weights  will also be in good supply.  Eggs: Prices are likely to advance slightly in late March.  Large and extra large will remain the best buys.  Apples and Pears: Prices will  continue steady with moderate  supplies.  Potatoes: Ample supplies will  keep prices low.  Carrots and Onions: Due to  heavy supplies prices are likely-to remain unchanged.  Rutabagas: Plentiful supplies  at low prices.      .  Hothouse Rhubarb: Good supplies with prices higher than  last  year.  Hothouse Cucumbers: Moderate supplies of cucumbers will  be available but prices will be  higher than last year.

This is  a 11,223-foot span across Kootenay Lake.  The new champion span's  highest point will be 1,596 feet  above high water -mark in Jervis  Inlet, on the north shore of Nelson Island. From there the conductors will dip to a point 180  feet above the inlet, and then  rise again to 993 feet above  high water 'mark where they  will. be anchored' to the towers  on" the opposite shore.  The new Sechelt-Powell River  line will also have a 6,450-foot-/  long water ^crossing over Agamemnon Channel tor Nelson Island.  The line will be energized  initially at 138,000 volts.  Book review  The Distemper of Our Times  by Peter C. Newman, published by McClelland and Stewart  Ltd. Available at Gibsons Public Library. Reviewed by Jules  A. Mainil.  This" is possibly one of the  best books published in Canada  in 1968. In essence it is the history of the Pearson years. It  is a vivid, interesting record  of the actions and interactions  of the Prime Minister, his Cabinet and Parliament generally.  Politicians and political parties  are described ' and delineated  with devastating, if not always  fair acumen.  Throughout the book I felt a  certain 7 glee in the recounting  of Mr. Pearson's mistakes and  troubles, while his real and  fundamental achievements were  often played down. Even when  he is praising the Prime Minister and his Cabinet he manages  to inject a subtle sense of dene-  gration about these decent and  hardworking men. I did not expect this front Mr. Newman.  The author is-a good writer  and a superb journalist. This  book is alive, interesting from  cover to cover, and more exciting than many a best selling  novel. I wish I had found it  more objective. It is a book  that I heartily recommend; one  that should be read by anyone  interested in the political life  of Canada.

Ricky decided the coin return slot of the  cafe-s coin telephone would  serve the purpose.  So in went Herman. Being the  venturesome type, Herman was  not content with the return slot  and decided to do some exploring. When Ricky returned and  opened the slot, Herman had  vanished from sight.

Cheese was passed through  the slot to make sure Herman  didn'it get', hungry in his new  home. By the time the cafe was  ready\ to close Herman had still  not" appeared so Ricky and his  grandfather went home, hoping  they would find him in the return slot in the morning.  Morning came but Herman  was still firmly ensconsed. Finally the plea for help was sent  to B^C. Tel by Ricky's grandmother. : . ..  In quick order, a B.C. Tel car  pulled up in front of the cafe  and Mitchell 'got out, entered  the cafe and went directly to the  telephone. Help had arrived! Or  had it?  Actually collector Mitchell  was making his regular rounds  and knew "nothing about the new  resident. It was little wonder,  then, that there was a bit of confusion when Bob opened the upper housing of the phone and a  mouse jumped out, showing off  a mound of warm, soft cheese.  Mitchell left the cafe shaking  his head and admitting that of  all the funny objects he has (been  required to take out of coin telephones, this had to be the topper!  SOU  Liberal Allan Williams (Vancouver - Howe Sound) attacking  the government's first billion  dollar budget in the legislature  said the minister of finance indicated that in the Revelstoke  area educational grant formulas  provide 90 percent of capital  cost for school construction.  "Howe Sound School District,  however, in the rural area of  Squamish and Pemberton Valley, gets a government grant  of $145,500 out of a total budget  of $1,900,000 ��� that's less than  io percent from the government  for operation of that school system." he said.    %  "Thse are tremendous disparities," Williams said, "at  Revelstoke the taxpayer carries  a burden of only 10 percent,  while at Howe Sound it's more  than 90 percent.  tie called for a change in financing formulas for education  "to remove a substantial part  of school cost burden from the  land-Owner."  He also commented on government capital grants to municipalities.   - :.;  "In spite of 7 the increase in  the home-owner grant," he said,  "municipalities are finding that  they are only able to keep up  with increased cost of services."  "For example at Squamish an  increased per capita grant will  provide the same number of  dollars as one mill on the municipal tax rate ��� but the money  only pays for the normal increases of 1969 in that municipality. The additional money  doesn't afford any assistance  to new programs at all.

Sechelt, B.C.  HON. ISABEL DAWSON  Much has been said in the  news media recently about the  problems that are being created by surface mining operations  in the United States. The Americans are concerned because  their coal fields are so vast,  that thousands of square miles  of farm land in such states as  Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois and  Indiana have been disturbed as  the surface mining operations  creep across the land. ,  ! I would like to point out that,  contrary to the impression being conveyed by the surface  mining stoiiies, British Columbia will not be faced with  similar problems in the development of its coal fields in the  Crows Nest Pass. I dropped in  on the Department of Mines and  Petroleum Resources, and learned a few things which I thought  might be of interest to the peor  pie of the Mackenzie area.  In the first place, our relatively compact coal deposits in the  Kootenay will be mined mostly by the open 7pit} method,  which is quite different from  the surface mining technique  being used on the shallow coal  deposits in the gently undulating farmlands of the eastern  United States.  ���British Columbia's coal mining operations are in a mountainous area which is sparsely  populated and has practically  no agricultural land; and the  surface area which will be disturbed and later restored wherever possible, is extremely  small in- comparison with the  amount of land which is being  disturbed by ' surface mining  operations-in the United States.  For example, a special report on Surface Mining and Our  Environment, published by the  U.S. department of the interior,  showed that as of 1965, 19.1 percent of the surface of the state  of Illinois had been disturbed by  coal mining Operations, as had  17.6 percent of Kentucky, 17.4  percent of Pennsylvania, 15.4  percent of Ohio and 7.7 percent  of Indiana.  7  Nearly one-fifth of the surface  of Illinois had been disturbed  by 1965, but by the time Kaiser  spends 15 years working a  three-square mile area in the  Kootenay, it will have disturbed  less than one thousandth of one  percent of the surface of British Columbia.  campaign  shows increase  B.C.'s Christmas Seal campaign has gone over the top  with a 12 percent increase this  year. The total stands now at  $410,000 up more than $40,Q00  over - last year, giving it the  largest increase' for any Canadian campaign this year. In  B.C. last year $367,000 was  donated.  "This 'will enable the B.C.  Tuberculosis-Christmas Seal Society to expand its services even  more into the field of respiratory disease, such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma  while still continuing to fight  TB," said C. W. Doodson, honorary treasurer for the B.C.  Tuberculosis-Christmas Seal Society.

The many errors snow Mr.  Bell's lack of understanding of  the fundamentals at stake and  his failure to check his facts  and sources of information.  He made four premises:  1. Thait this school district  overspent its budgeted amounts  in sections A to D (operating  sections) of the 1968 budget by  $275,260.    ������..'���'  Correction: The figure quoted  has no relation to oyer-expendi-  ture nor does it have any relation to:the 1968 .budget. We pre-,  surne it is meant to be the  amount in excess of the provincial basic program for this district in 1&69, and if so it is $227,-  753, not $275,260. In any event  this is not an over-expenditure of  the budget, it is the amount the  school board feels necessary to  provide for the additional costs  over and above the basic education program for this district.  2.   That   over-expenditure   in  1968 justifies a reduction in ex  penditures iri 1969.  Correction: There is no reduction in the instructional account  nor in the total budget. Although  the total budget for 1969 is only  a few dollars more than the estimates for 1968, the board feels  that the areas other than the instructional account have been  generous in the past and it was  in these areas that reductions  were made.  3. That this school district  must cut its education costs in  order to have good relations  with Victoria.  Bus. 266-7111  Res. 278-0874  E. E.   (MICKEY)  COE  Brown Bros.

The provincial government is a partner of this district  as much as of any. other and  certainly the success of any  partnership is directly in proportion to the relationship of the  partners. Sections of the Public  School Act state specifically the  method by which basic education  cost SHALL be calculated and  how the budget MUST be compiled.  According to legal opinion the  boards' overall and primary  function is to provide education  for the children in their area.  The school board is in fact the  local agency of the legislature  assigned the responsibility' of  carrying out the provincial educational policy ih the community  Tlie school board is not an agency of the local community (in  law) though to some extent in  fact.  4. That a reduction in present teaching and non-teaching  staff and services will hot.impair the district's educational  program.  Correction: Mr. Bell is equating excellence in the teaching-  learning situation, with quantity  and ignoring quality.  We have not dealt with thhe  analysis of these premises for  the information therein is personal opinion. In reference to  item 1 of his summary, the secretary-treasurer does not have  and has not attempted to exercise the powers which Mr. Bell  attributes to him. With regard  to item 2 the decisions mentioned in his summary are in fact  made by the board,,upon infor-  :mation submitted to the board  iby its chief educational officer,  ithe district superintendent. Such  information is in the form of  (recommendation and in no sense  ���a directive.  This school board takes full  responsibility for budgetary decisions made in 1969 and is confident that the education of the  children will not suffer as a result of certain administrative  changes.  ���'Mrs. Sheila Kitson, chairman,  Board of School Trustees,  School District No. 46 (Sechelt7  A Sechelt Teachers Association  ���letter follows:    .

Tschaikowsky  show planned  Alexander Nicolai Tschaikowsky who is 76 and will celebrate  his golden wedding anniversary  in May, has had an eventful  life. Born in Odessa on the Black  Sea, he made his way east fol-  . lowing the 1917 revolution, staying for a while in Manchuria and  in 1925 making his way to Victoria. Here he was able to find  work and establish himself and  arrange for his! wife and two  children to join him.  A professional artist he was  of course unable to support his  famly in those days by painting  pictures and so became a. house  painter and decorator while continuing to study art. One of the  artists with whom he studied  was commissioned to paint the  murals in the lobbies of the OPR  hotels across Canada.  Later the family moved to  Vancouver where Alexander  Tschaikowsky painted murals  and gay designs over every  spare inch of wall'and ceiling in  his home. He has had paintings  exhibited at the Vancouver Art  Gallery and hopes one day soon  to complete the. remaining canvases to make up the 100 necessary to qualify for a one man  show.  Last year he won first prize  n an international competition  organized in Russia.  His son, Tony Tschaikowsky,  after serving in the RCAF, came  to Halfmoon Bay with Dick  Laird after the war to take advantage of the boom in the forestry industry and built the  small house now the home of  Mr.' and Mrs. Tinkley. Finding  that his wife also liked the then  isolated area Tony built another  home close by and has been  there ever snce.  Both Tony and his sister who  lives in Vancouver own pictures  painted by their father and  warit'ing to honor and share their  pride in their father's work have  loaned a group of these delightful landscapes, painted in the  19th century style which so  many people admire, to the Arts  Council Gallery. The gallery  committee is happy and proud  to display them until March 15,  a forerunner of the larger and  more comprehensive showing at  the Vancouver Art Gallery.  .The Gallery Shop in Sechelt is  open from ,10 to 4, Tuesdays  through Saturdays.
