Saturday night is the night,  if you wamt to keep up wilth  things, on which you push your  clock ahead one hour to conform with daylight saving,  time which comes into effect  Sunday. If you desire to argue  the point you push'the-'-clock  hands ahead in the spring and  push it back one hour in the  fall.  -��� "     .7   ,;    ���. -.���.��� ��� .-���.���  14 mills  for Secliell  Sechelt council is bu'dgetting  this year on a 14 mill, rate  basis covering revenue iOf-$46,-  000 which will include $6,000  from  surplus funds.  It    was    decided--iby  council  that it would be better7 to use  surplus   fundsYinj&eaiH of ;bpr-'  rowing  as   the  comparisonYbeY  tween interest rates^pnYb^^w^  ing 'and   the   interesrvob^ain^e^  on bank money were far apart 7  and money could be saved by  using surplus funds. If the $6-000  was.borrowed it would add one-  and-a-half mills to the tax rate..  The mill rate is expected to  raise $18,725 for municipal purposes and the provincial municipal per capita grant will be  about $14,000 both 7 of which  make up revenue plus slightly  more-than- $6,000 obtainable  through licenses, permits and  other sources of re venue.  The budget must be completed by May 15 so council has  two meetings in which to get  the matter settled.  Council also got to work on  a five-year capital budget which  will'be-a guide to council spending from year to year; This is  required under the Municipal  act- and it provides the -provincial and federal government  necessary information on proposed capital works for the future.  It would allow programming  of money and labor. Council  is planning a foreshore seawall  and roads. This type of budget  would allow so much per year  for such work.  Re-elect Beacon  as chairman  Chris Beacon was re-elected  chairman of the- Gibsons Heights  Ratepayers association at its  first annual meeting in Union  Hall Thursday night of last  week. Diane Coates was retain-  as secretary. Murray Crosby  was named vice-president.  Four trustees were elected,  Mrs. Jessie Christianson and Jim  Waterhouse for the second term  also Felix Comeau and Tom  Morrison for first terms.  Frank West and Lome Wolverton of the Regional District  board explained the work which  can be done by the Regional  District board and answered  questions.  It was decided that there  should be two public meetings  a year, one in the spring and  the  other in September.  View of proposed Recreation centre  . The Recreation Centre committee has successfully concluded its first phase of its proposed project. After carefully  considering all aspects, the decision to build the ice arena,  curling rink, senior citizens facility, as the first step in the  overall plan, was made.  Over .50 organizations in the  area, including all chambers of  commerce, the Village councils,  all service clubs, labor organizations, pulpmill management,  church, school and Legptan  groups, and responsible trusteeships, have indicated a strong  desire to see this project, come  into being. Now letters, will be  sent to individual land owners  requesting their support. A  comparable facility built elsewhere recently cost roughly  $400,000 at today's prices.;  -Various other sources of funds  : including^ private capital,; government grants, funds from the  Indian Band will be actively  pursued.   Specific   enquiries 7 in  ������'���: regards to financing have been  received   from   MacMillan: and  ^^Bleiodelv Limited. .-HoweverYt^^  S^tfiriY^  and when you receive a letter  on this, a stamped self-addressed envelope, please mail back  your donation, as "the future of  the entire project hinges oh  this.' '   ��� - 7 '."  To date, many man hours of  work have been volunteered.  The Lions Club has contributed  $250 and has been the major  supporter in cash contributions.  Donations have also been received from the Kinsmen, Howe  Sound Farmers' Institute,;, and  school children. ; Y;  The second major hurdle will  consist Of selecting a site. At  this time the committee is studying population growth trends in  the area. . The result of thfis  study will serve as the basis  for selecting a site. Choice  acreage has been offered in  Gibsons, Roberts Creek and Sechelt. The committee is prepared to receive any other offers.  A minimum of ten acres would  be required.  Certainly, the completion of  this project would be the most  exciting thing to ever hit the  Sunshine Coast.  Drop-in attracts 350  . About 350 persons attended  the Dialogue of Communications  drop-in at Elphinstone school  Monday night Dr. Bennett R.  Wong, Vancouver psychiatrist  was chief speaker and Miss  Dianne Patton, Elphinstone  senior was chairman. The event  was sponsored by student councils, the;   teachers 7 association  meetings start  A move towards wider understanding of union between the  Angioan and United churches  was inaugurated at a Sunday  evening meeting of representatives of both churches on the  Sunshine* Coast. (  More than 20 persons representing three Anglican iand three  United church congregations  met in the Anglican Parish hall  to lay the foundation for future  operations. A small committee  will consider methods of approach leading toward greater  activity for church union. Those  attending the Sunday evening  meeting were representatives  from the various church boards  and expressed their desire to  start efforts towards church  union-.  The Anglican and United congregation at Roberts Creek on.  the last Sunday in March held  a joint communion service and  it is expected further joint services will be held. Gibsons Anglican and United Church congregations have held several  joint Sunday evening services  and more will be held this year.  New minister  young man  The United Church charge, including Gibsons, Roberts Creek  and Wilson Creek church congregations have decided to call  Rev. James Williamson, of Port  McNile to be minister replacing Rev. W. M. Cameron  who is retiring from Gibsons  church.  Rev. Mr. Williamson who was  ordained in 1967 is 33 years old  and has been in church work  including an ecumenical church  including Anglican United and  Catholic . people. One of his  strong points has been his work  among young people.  MRS. AUDREY BENNIE  Saves child  About 10:15 a.m. April IS,  Mrs. Audrey Bennie, Hopkins  Landing, observing two tots on  the beach, thought it strange the  older one was pulling off his  sweater. Investigating, she noticed a bundle floating in the  water, ahd wading out waist  deep discovered a child, two-and  a-half years old. He was Steven  Dame. The child on the beach  was Gordon Mooney, four, of  Granthams.  On shore Mrs. Bennie, for the  first time in her life tried mouth  to mouth resuscitation. Gordon  was told to go and find help. The  rescue wagon of Gibsons fire  department respnded along with  the ROMP.  The youngster, barely breathing, was placed in the rescue  truck with Mrs. Bennie and Ken  Crosby of the fire department  and with Dick Ranniger driving  sped to St. Mary's Hospital. En��  route, it was thought that the  child was dead.  However, the youngster is now  at home and is little the worse  for his venture. He was visiting  with his mother the Mooneys  in Granthams and the youngsters wandered themselves to  Hopkins Landing area. RCMP  and firemen of the rescue truck  have commended Mrs. Bennie  for her action.  and the school board.  Dr. Wong maintained that human beings, young and old have  within themselves the ability to  act as children, adults or parents. Part of the young people's  problem in communicating with  older people was that they were  trying to develop adult relationship, including parents and  when frustrated, in the, attempt  iSfc .-they.-:.a ct--^as-, -children.,- -Parents  Yalso vreacted"'������at' times' as' children  when frustrated by  their  .d^h youngsters or other, people.  '���;'.; Dr; Wong suggested 7 that  when children reach late teens  that the best thing they could  have would be an adult to adult  relationship.  Tackling the drug problem  Dr. Wong stated we live in a  drug culture from aspirin to  marijuana. -While most drugs  appeared harmless it would be  best, for the human race to  move away from dependence  on them. ���  The audience later broke down  into small groups for discussion  which allowed both young and  old to explore the. problem of  communication including the  conflict with drugs and alcohol.  Following this was a dialogue  between Dr. Wong and the  audience which ranged over the  whole area of adult, parents  and youth  relationship.  Four garbage  fenders opened  Four tenders were submitted  to the Sunshine Coast Regional  District board at last Thursday's special meeting to consider.  -Tenders were from the Sunshine Coast Disposal a new unit  under the names of Chamberlin  and Corrie at $19,200; Gaines  Construction Ltd., $21,840; Syd  Waters, Secheit, $30,212 and Irving Benner, Sechelt, $42,000.  The two low tenders were  turned over to the garbage committee for a report and recommendation. This garbage collection would cover the Sunshine  Coast area excluding the villages.  CLOSE SELMA PARK P.O.  Owing to the illness of the  postmaster, the post office at  Selma Park is closed. Patrons  will pick up their mail at Sechelt Post office until further  arrangements  are made.  pi  ans are a  Plans prepared for the $518,-  276 extension of St. Mary's Hospital have now been approved  and architects can proceed to  develop them to get construction  underway, James Parker, chairman of the hospital expansion  and construction committee informed the annual meeting of St.  Mary's Hospital Society, Monday night in Sechelt's Legion  hall.  Close to 50 persons attended  and were" informed by Chairman  E. W. Booth that total membership in the society was 417 including 209 new members this  year.  A change in the constitution  and bylaws to allow 15 instead  of 14 directors be appointed was  passed. This was needed to cover appointment of a director to  the newly formed Regional Hospital board.        .  The hew slate of officers includes E. W. Booth- F. H. Norminton, A. J. Rutherford, H.  Hubbs, Mrs. E. Moscrip, R. L.  Jackson, G. Hopkins, N. Franklin, J. E. Parker, D. Douglas,  F; J. Willis, E. Hensch- F. West  Colin Dobell and A. Deaton.  After the general meeting directors met and named George  Hopkins president, J. F. Willis  vice-president, E. Booth and E.  Hensch along with the previous  three as the executive. Investment and trust officials will be  A. Rutherford, Mr. Willis, Mr.  Booth, Mr. Parker and Mr! Norminton.  Mr. Parker, in ' summarizing  the operations of the construe-;,  tion committee during^ the year  said that Tlast* year's ��� annual refe  port forecast construction would  probably ibe underway by this  time but unfortunately due to  circumstances beyond the  board's control there have been  delays.  After reviewing sketch plans,  and bearing in mind the enlarg  ed 70 bed hospital would eventually be utilized 100% for acute  care patients, it was decided to  change the original plans by  having administration ��� space enlarged and re-located in a central position on the mainYfflioor  rather than cramped quarters  in the basement. Other minor  changes were made in the space  for physiotherapy, laboratory  and x-ray departments. These  revised plans had to be approved by the British Columbia Hospital Insurance Services in Victoria.  Before approval to proceed to  working drawings could be obtained it was necessary to ask  the Regional Hospital District  board to prepare a plebiscite to  be submitted to the voter.?. As  there was no Regional Hospital  District board in existence some  delay was again encountered until Letters Patent were received  initiating such a board.  In November 1968, the trustees  of St. Mary's Hospital Society  applied to the Regional Hospital  District board to proceed with  the preparation of a plebiscite  in the amount of $51*276. On  Feb. 22, the plebiscite was placed before the voters and passed  with a 95% majority in favor ���  a very definite indication that  the people want the hospital improved and enlarged.  Our architects are now. preparing the working drawings  and specifications. It is hoped  that we can go to tender in July  or August and start construction  in the early fall.  Once again ��� may I take this  :ibpp���^tfnit^tc^i-han_c the Eatpan-  sion Committee, members,. Mr.  Matthew Smith, representing the  architects, the B.C.H.LS." officials, the Hon. Isabel Dawson  and Mr. Wagemakers;, our administrator, for their unfailing  co-operation in furthering this  project.  uniunuiwnwiiuiraiimfflirainuwmnmiuuuiuiinniiiniiimin  The hospital administrator, A.

Booth, hospital society  president, in presenting his report, said this year the society  has a significant increase in  membership- and for this happy  state, volunteer ladies from six  auxiliaries to St. Mary's Hospital, deserve full credit. Any organization is as good as the  memibers who constitute it, and  it is the support given by the  auxiliary memberships which often enables the elected board of  trustees of the Hospital Society  to function succssfully in various  situations which arise from time  to time. v  During the past year a further  heavy increase of in-patients and  also out-patients has been experienced. The full extent of  this increase can be noted in the  relevant reports, however, the  extent of the difficulties experienced by the hospital staff in  handling this patient load cannot be made evident, but I assure you, every word of appreciation received, all the encouragement voiced and assistance  given has been fully warranted.  The hospital stafi. well deserve  our thanks for the manner in  which thist year's heavy work  load has been resolved. In this  connection, perhaps it should be  (Continued on Page 4)  During 1968 we experienced  some unexpected' difficulties in  seeking to maintain the objects  of this society, however, despite  the difficulty created, first by  the resignation of our laboratory  technologist, and secondly the  resignation of the x-ray technician, we were able with patience  and co-operation of our medical  staff to restore normal and excellent service to these departments, and also to provide the  added services of a fully qualified physiotherapist.  The continual growth of the  community we serve has had resulting demands on the hospital  facilities, and these demands often create a situation requiring  a bed set up much in excess of  our 35 rated capacity with resultant difficulties for our nursing  department, however, here  again all directly concerned  have given of their best to provide adequate patient care.  I express my sincere appreciation to the administration  staff, nurses, doctors, technicians and lay personnel for the  co-operation given in all matters related to administration,  also my gratitude to the president and members of the board  for their advice and assistance  extended to me in matters regarding the operation of the  hospital.

'  ���At Sunday night's meeting in the Anglican Church hall some  views were put forward but they were concerned with organization  for the future.  ��� X committee will be formed which will lay down a program for  the next meeting which will more than likely consider how best to  get the various church boards working together for the future.  Church union does not become possiible for at least four or five  years. In the meantime,some spade work can be done which would  benefit the involved churches to be in a good position to have an  educated set of congregations who will understand! what church  union will mean to them. It looks like a long job which" should ibe  approached with reasonable care. Union can mean strength but to  have union implanted on congregations instead of having congregations seek union might not be the best way off achieving the desired  result.  In camera meetings!  On last week's front page appeared a letter from the school  board stating that the press would be admitted to sit in on commit-  tee-of-the-whole sessions. These are meetings which concern chiefly personnel problems, pupil problems and other such items which  most of the time are of such a personal nature that publicity would  do more harm than good to the person involved.  At one time the editor of the Coasts News was allowed to sit  in on such sessions but as events changed the situation, it was  dropped.  The editor of the Coast News has been around public officials  now for close on to 50 years and has no fear of in camera types of  meetings. His theory has been unchanged for years and it is that  murder will out somewhere, somehow and at times in a most unusual manner. So in camera meetings do not arouse his antagonism towards school b'oaixis or councils so lhclined. It is.'rare to  find any board or council that is so closed-mouth that its actions  cannot ibe uncovered.  Fanfare government  Claude Ryan, editor of Montreal's Le Devoir, whose comments  on Quebec and Conferedation are always worth listening to or read  ing, is apparently of the opinion that Quebec is at a turning point  in its fight for a separate state.  In an interview in Canada Month, a magazine of government  and politics, he states he has a hunch Quebec within the next few  years will have a government of the Rofoarts (Ontario) type, a government that does not speak too loud, but which acts efficiently,  which deals with problems as they arise without fanfare and without continually announcing to the world that we are going to do this  or that thing differently from others.  He adds that Quebeckers would like to have the best of two  worlds. They would like to be free and on the other hand they want  to be as comfortable and as prosperous as the rest of North America, and in particular, the more prosperous parts of North America.  Somehow this has a meaning for British Columbia. Perhaps  the population of this coastal province which is one of the richest  in Canada, may decide in the days to come that government without fanfare has its good points.  Coast News  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons mill rate was dropped from 10.22 for 1963 to 9.128  for 1964. The school rate was  22.41 compared to 21.14 in 1963.  Roberts Creek Community association decided to look into  the possibilities of the formation of a  district municipality.  Hon. Eric Martin, minister of  health, is scheduled to open the  new Health Centre in Gibsons  April 25.  Jules A. Mainil, who took  over the municipal clerk post  following the death of Robert  Burns, has decided to retire  Dec. 1.  Eighty-three out of 90 persons, none over 21 years old  completed the 16 mile hike from  Sechelt to Gibsons.  10 YEARS AGO  Port Mellon celebrated its 50th  anniversary as a milHtown and  at the same time Seaside opened its remodelled premises.  Gibsons and Area Fire department has acquired property  on North road for its rural area  firehall.  Sechelt sets its 1959 mill rate  at 10 mills unchanged from 1956  when the municipality was organized. Gibsons council set a  13 mill rate.  The government recreation  department announced that  Plumper's Cove on Keats Island would be improved as a  provincial campsite and marine.  20 YEARS AGO  James Sinclair, MP, informed a packed political meeting in  Sechelt that the contract for the  $64,000 wharf had been let and  it would be completed by July.  Extension of Gibsons water  system from Cannery road and  replacement of present pipes  was the concern of Gibsons  municipal officials and an inspection on site was planned.  A Legion zone meeting passed  a resolution asking local boards  of trade to support an ambulance   and  hospital   service  in  the area.  The following, is an address  made by Pat McGeer, provincial liberal leader, to t(he  Windemere Chamber of Commerce, on April 17.  The NDP under Thomas Berger has become the most anti-  industrial party in North America. The NDP must be reduced  to a small minority in the next  election. It is dangerous to do  anything else. It is important  that the election be held soon.  It is one thing for the NDP to  keep industry on- (its toes'  through criticism. It is quite  another for them to take industry over or to drive it over  the province.  The B.C. government cannot  be a political-sandbox for the  new left. But this is what the  people of the province are being driven io accept by the far  right government of Premier  W. A. C. Bennett. To continue  with Premier Bennett in office  is to guarantee a socialist takeover at some future time. The  Social Credit government is  simply mot performing in office.  British Columbia is no place  to experiment with socialist  economic theories, either now  or in the future. Our industry  is based primarily on export  to world markets. We must remain competitive on these markets to survive. Many unthinking  socialists believe our industry  is so secure that governments  can propose any taxation  scheme whatever without it af-  feoting jobs and prosperity.  Having such people even close  to government has a depressing  effect on the future. This is because most of our industrial  and resources development require capital incentives. Large  amounts of money must be invested over a long period of  time to get a particular plant  going. It may be a pulp mill  or a new mine. But confidence  can only be built if there is a  common sense government  which will honor long term commitments and lay out clear,  positive and constructive ground  rules for the future.  This is precisely what a new,  and the New Democratic Party  free enterprise government under the Liberal party intends  to do. The keystone is a department of conservation and  resource planning. This department would establish priorities  of: land use in B.C. It would  say which areas must be preserved for recreation, which  areas should be reserved for  agriculture, which areas could  bejT developed for forestry, and  which areas would be .peran'it-  te|t~ for mining development.  ". Tllere would be rigid controls f.  against pollution and land despoliation. The recreational  vatlue of land would have the  highest priority.  ���^The Liberal party would be  consistent in its taxation approach and capable of giving  lohgN term commitments for industrial development.  Our.industrial future is being  threatened by the present Social Credit administration.  Social .Credit is doing such a  bad job of providing services  to people and protecting our  land from plunder and despoliation, it is turning people to socialism. Some people will accept socialism no matter how  anti-industrial it may be.  A far-right government, such  as that run by Premier Bennett  and Social Credit can often provoke terrific resentment in the  people against industry. It is  not because industry fails to do  its job. It is because the government fails to do a job in those  areas where only governments  can do  the  job.  For example, our educational,  health and welfare services,  anti-pollution laws and development of recreation are in an  advanced state of decay in this  province. To continue with Social Credit under such circumstances will only guarantee a  continued downgrading of all  these fields. Premier Bennett  is slipping farther behind each  year in these areas���areas he  has never been able to cope with  adequately.  Just as important an area of  lack of performance for Social  Credit, is in bringing secondary  industry to British Columbia.  The area of industrial incentive  45 years of scars!  Still seaworthy, but showing  scars of 45 years service, the  St. Catherine, renamed Canuck,  famous war canoe of the Sechelt band has arrived back  safely in home waters at the  Sechelt reserve.  In a long and honorable career  her prow crossed the finishing  line ahead of the most formidable contenders in more than  50 fiercely contested races. Now  resting well above the high-  water mark on the beach in  front of Clarence. Joe's home,  the veteran 51-foot war canoe  awaits final retirement in the  Band's proposed new recreation  hall and council house to be  erected shortly.  Here the St. Catherine will  be slung snugly high under the  rafters of the main hall an enduring reminder of the all-but-  forgotten craftsmanship of her  builder and to the prowess of  the many well trained 12-man  crews whose flashing blades  sped her so often to victory.  Built in the early tewenties  in the traditional manner of the  West Coast Indians by John  Hurst, the band's master canoe  builder, the hull of the St.  Catherine was hand-carved and  hewn from a selected cedar.  Though the tools were primitive and the dimensions both  inside and out guaged by the  eye and by the feel of her builder, she was not off a fraction  of an inch when the job was  finally completed.  Clarence Joe recalls it took at  least a month to shape and  rough out the hull followed by  many weeks of laborious  smoothing out, hand rubbing  and polishing the craft to a fine  sheen.  During his active years John  Hurst launched 12 war canoes  and son Tony, following in the  footsteps of his father carved  out four or five of the long  canoes.  The St. Catherine competed  successfully for almost 50 years  in Canadian and American waters, including regattas at Lum-  mii, Vancouver, Cultus Lake,  Naniamo and Victoria.  One of the most consistently  successful of her crews was  captained by Cyprian August,  who along with the surviving  members include Reg. Paul,  David Paul, Clarence Joe;,  James John, John Jackson,  Jimmy Jackson and Solomon  Joe. While active contenders  this group went into rigorous  training including early morning roadwork two months before the season opened.  Clarence Joe admits a bit ruefully, the boys have all put on  a bit more weight over the  years, and that some of them  might find it a bit difficult to  squeeze into their places, let  alone paddle their craft on any  set course.  program of the federal government had a spectacular effect  in the premier's own riding of  South Okanagan. Many secondary industries came there because of the federal incentive  program and this has provided  an imbalance of secondary industry in B.C. The only way to  bring equal and fair treatment  to all of B.C. is to expand thie  area incentive program for secondary industry by adding a  provincial program to cover  those areas not given advantages by the federal government.  The province of Ontario has already done this with great success in that province.  A new free enterprise Liberal  government     will     bring  such  area incentive programs to B.C.  This will have a tremendously  beneficial effect on areas such  as the Kootenays which now  are completely disadvantaged  from an industrial point of view..  The Kootenays suffer on the  one hand from a 5% sales tax  while neighboring Alberta has  no sales tax. The Kootenays  suffer on the other hand when  areas such as the Okanagan on  the other side are given industrial incentives which do hot  apply to the Kootenays. Such  discrimination against some  areas of B.C. must be ended.  A Liberal government under my  direction will provide equal industrial opportunities throughout B.C.  N.

Federation of  Labor, has criticized the provincial government for its failure  to establish an independent committee to investigate charges  that Sechelt Indians have been  the vdctims of police brutality.  "We wrote to Premier Ben-  net on March 26 requesting such  an independent investigation,"  Mr. Haynes stated.. "To date  we have not even received an  acknowledgement of our request  let alone any'action on it. Continued failure to act on the part  of the government may be doing  a great injustice to the Native  Indians involved. It is certainly leaving unanswered questions  in the. public mind and), is allowing doubt and uncertainty concerning the RIOMP's- action�� to  simmer beneath the surface.  "This is an unhealthy situation. Unfortunately, this government has repeatedly shown1 a reluctance to submit various  charges of improper behavior to  a public investigation. We believe that charges of a serious  nature levelled against any government or law enforcement  agency, or against any public  official should be subjected, to  impartial scrutiny under the  public eye. This is essential to  the preservation of a healthy  democratic society. We again  urge the government to act on  this matter before it is too late."  FARM CARS LAST  Farmers use their cars a lot  longer than city folks, says the  B.C. Automobile association.  The number of cars reaching  the scrap pile which are 12  years arid older is more than  double in rural areas than in  metropolitan areas.  .-fc.;  A Complete  Electric Service  ��� NEW HOUSE WRUNG  ��� RE-WIRING  ��� COMMERCIAL & INDUSTRIAL  ��� ELECTRIC HEATING  McPHEDRAN ELECTRIC Ltd.

FOREST WATERSHEDS  Forests build up a thick layer  of decayed leaves and twigs  under which there is a dense  mat. of fine roots anchoring  trees, shrubs and herbs, i The  rain must first saturate the  crown foliage, then the under-  story foliage, and finally the  thick mat of humus. All this  retards run-off so that erosion  is inhibited and a steady supply of clear, filtered water is  fed into the forest streams.  Forest trees consume huge  quantities of water through their  roots. This also reduces the  amount of water which would  otherwise run  off  too  quickly.  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  ARE BEST SELLERS  DR.

Hospital Insurance Services is required to enable the board and management  to continue to provide all the  services which St. Mary's offers  An added service to the people of the community is now offered with the addition to the  Hospital Staff of a registered  physiotherapist. Mr. John Lewis  joined the staff on Jan. 1. Since  then he has been fully occupied  with a heavy patient load which  continues to show increase beyond all expectations. Additional physiotherapy equipment to  provide various types of treatment has been considered and  approved, and is at present being processed.  You will probably be interested to learn bur Administrator  has arranged for a survey to be  conducted of our hospital services and patient care to estab  dish whether or not St. Mary's  has now reached a sufficiently  high standard to warrant the  classification of an accredited  hospital and be certified as such  With the whole-hearted support of the people of the Sunshine Coast, the clubs and organizations, who assist and donate to the hospital funds we are  able to provide the present standard of excellence, which visitors continually remind us is  not often found in larger and  more important centres, and  this also carries through in the  type and amount of medical  equipment contained in this  small hospital, which allows our  excellent medical staff to use to  a greater capacity their knowledge and skill.  In the medical staff report  prepared by Dr. Walter Burtnick he said the medical staff  was increased by the addition of  two active members, Dr.. G.  Egan and Dr. H. Wiebe. Dr. J.  D. Hobson was . reinstated on  the active medical staff after a  year's, leave of absence for .postgraduate study in England, and  Dr. R. :A. C. Swan is at present  on a granted year's leave of absence for a second post-graduate  course in Hawaii.  The complete medical staff includes' Drs. H. F. Ingliis, chairman; H. Wiebe, secretary; J.  W. Vosburgh, radiologist; E. J.  Paetkau, R. A. Swan, J. D.  Hobson, D. L. Johnson, J. Crosby, W. A. Stuart, W. Burtnick  and I. G. Egan.  Consultants include Dr. Roy  Karjalia, internal medicine; Dr.  R. M. F. McNaughton. obstetrics andi gynaecology; Dr. H. V.  Hughes, ear, nose and throat;  Dr. Frank Wilson, orthopedics;  Dr. P. J. Reynolds, medical  health ofiftteer; Dr. H. Stockton,  pediatrician and Dr. Terence  Welbb, dentist.  With the increasing number of  hospital patients and the concomitant demands on hospital  facilities and personnel, the medical staff was faced with a  very difficult but stimulating  challenge in attempting to provide adequate patient care.  A period of exceedingly critical difficulties were encountered through.the loss of competent  laboratory services for four  months and inadequate radiological services for one month,  also the complete discontinuance of physiotherapy for six  months.  During this period there was  undoubtedly, some decrease in  the provision of adequate patient care, however, through the  diligent efforts of administration and hospital board and cooperation of the medical! staff  the problems encountered in the  laboratory, radiology and physio  therapy department were completely resolved, and I am pleased to report that adequate patient care was not only restored  but improved significantly.  I also report that without the  extremely generous purchases of  very vital and expensive medical equipment by the Auxiliaries to St. Mary's Hospital, it  would have been impossible to  provide the highly specialized  care that certain seriously ill  patients require.  Mrs. E. Joy Philp for auxiliaries co-ordinating council re-  meeting  ported eight meetings were held  in the hospital board room. The  treasurer's report showed a  bank balance of $582.71. Services to the patients expanded  and included a volunteer shopping service, the taking of baby  photos, hairdressing service,  storytelling to children and assistance to the physiotherapist.  The baby case continues to be  popular with both patients and  visitors and thanks must go to  all who have contributed so generously to its success.  ' The Thrift Shop had an outstanding year and raised over  $5000 for hospital use. Christmas gifts for the patients were  looked after this year by Gibsons auxiliary arid the baby  spoon for the first baby of the  year was purchased by Sechelt  Auxiliary.  In April the Lower Mainland  regional conference was held in  Sechelt. Two hundred and seventy five members registered, one  of the largest conferences ever  held by the regional district.  Mrs |, Moscrip must be commended for convening a most successful affair.  Equipment purchased for the  hospital this year by the aux  iliaries and the Thrift Shop  came to a total of $3191.58.  The annual report; of the Volunteers to St. Mary's Hospital  was presented by Mrs. Ina  Grafe, who said the combined  auxiliaries' personal shoppers  called on patients Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week  and served 736 patients, time 373 ���  hours 10 minutes, goods ordered amounted to $812.08. In May  two volunteers worked 19 hours  making 18 curtains, and in February 11 volunteers spent five  hours folding notices for the  hospital referendum. A new volunteer service started in February with volunteers assisting Mr  Lewis the physiotherapist, at  present there are five volunteers  working two hours Monday to  Friday.  The hairdressing service headed by Mrs. Marg Burley, has  , six volunteers who served 19  patients ini 26 hours, profit $39.35  These volunteers are on call  whenever a patient wishes her  hair done.  Mrs. Irene Burtnick and Mrs.  Carolyn Stuart were in charge  of baby photos. They took 68  photos ��� 16 hours 10 minutes.  The magazine racks are kept  in good order by Mrs. Ada Dawe  who twice weekly rotates the  magazines which come by subscription from the auxiliaries  and various individuals.  The gift counter is looked after by Mrs. Irina Laycock. Nnit-  ting is done by members of the  auxiliaries and also by non-  members. This is greatly appreciated and' many beautiful articles were sold. Besides knitwear the show case carries stationary and other incidentals.

Guests were greeted by Club  Career Day  at Elphinstone  YXrmed with pamphlets, films  and a wealth Of information, officials of training institutions  and business firms converged  on Elphinstone Secondary  School on Thursday, April 17 to  participate in the 1969 Careers  Day.  According to their pre-selec-  tion, students in Grades 10, 11  and 12 attended three sessions  each dealing with a different  form of post-secondary training  or a different form of career.  Speakers showed films, outlined  career opportunities and requirements, explained training facilities and procedures, and answered questions. Student chairmen introduced the guests, and  other students proposed a vote  of thanks at the conclusion of  the. session.  Those participating were:  Amalgamated Construction Association, Barry Law; B.C. Institute of Technology, J. T.  Field; B. C. Telephone Co., Mr.  Simpson; B.C. Vocational  School, D.

Bingo starts at 8 p.m. on  member night and auxiliary  members are allowed to bring  a guest. The birthday party will  take place on June 14.  President Keith and Mrs. Wright  assisted by Vice - President  Mickey and Mrs. McKay. The  company sat down at tables  centred with bowls of daffodils  tastefully arranged by Mrs.  Anne Kurluk. A special menu  included barons of beef for the  first course followed by a dessert of imported French pastries  Following the meal, Mickey  McKay presented the chairman  of each of the active committees  and then called on the president  for the presentation of an honorary life membership in the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country  Club to Mrs. Wilma Morrison,  the club's first and continuing  secretary.  Mr. Wright in paying tribute  to Mrs..^ Morrison stated the  honor was bestowed not only  for faithful and invaluable services as secretary and attending every meeting, but also for  her great generosity in making  it possible for the club to acquire  the property and on terms that  made the undertaking feasible  frdm the outset.  Mrs. Morrison received the  award with evident surprise and  delight and as the only woman  on the executive assured the  meeting that she enjoyed every  momefnt of her work for the  club.  In the dance which followed  there was more evidence of  spring atmosphere in the colorful gowns of the ladies, not to  mention the splash of color contributed by chairman of the  house committee, Bernel Gordon  in his dress tartan.

The service was held in St.  Hilda's Anglican Church with  Rev. Barry Jenks assisting.  Burial was made in Seaview  Cemetery with Harvey Funeral  Home conducting arrangements.  Pall-bearers were Vic Osborne, Chuck Crawley, Sam  Mackenzie, Bruce Redman,  Rocky Henderson and Butch  Ono.  Born in Altemont, Manitoba,  she moved to Vancouver in  1907 and attended King Edward  High school and in 1909 as Mrs.  Osborne moved to Mission area  where they farmed from 1919  to 1923.  In Mission she joined the  Order of Eastern Star and down  through the years held various  posts including that of the  grand chapter office. She took  part in many of the good deeds  that neighbors performed during frontier life and was well  liked by the Indian bands.  The entire Sechelt band council attended the service and  privately expressed their deep  sympathy to members of the  family. Mrs. Laura Mclntyre  from Port Moody, a sister and  Lloyd Jackson a brother attended along with numerous other  friends from up country and  Vancouver Island attended the  service.  The family remaining includes  Mr. Ted Osborne, Ted Jr., and  daughter Mrs. R. S. (Edith)  Dunn. There are seven grandchildren. Canon Greene performed ..the marriage* ceremonies for both the son and daughter.  Sechelt's May  Day shaping up  Sechelt's May Day is coming  of age, with its 21st Annual May  Queen ceremony and festivities.  Plans are going ahead with  very good co-operation from all  approached for help so far. This  is most encouraging to the May  Day committee, because the  work involved and details that  must be covered are tremendous, and without the help of  the whole community, the task  just would not be possible.  The Village of Seohelt and  the Sunshine Coast Lions' Club  are sponsoring May Day Mr.  Terry Rodway, Lions' member,  is May Day chairman and Mrs.  Jack Redman is in charge of  the May Queen ceremony and  entertainment. Parade marshal  is still to be appointed, flowers  are being donated by Lissiland,  and the stage decorated by Rebecca Lodge. B.C. Hydro help  are putting the platform in  place.  July 1 event       Boating complex  Gibsons July 1 celebration in  conjunction with a proposed  Gibsons Week was discussed at  Monday night's dinner meeting  of Gibsons and Area Chamber  of Commerce at Cedar's Inn.  Further discussion with groups  in the community will take place  and it is expected that for this  year the July 1 event will be  part of a week long celebration  covering other festivities as  well as the parade and sports  events of July 1.  Ray Kersey of the provincial  industrial development department, Victoria, will visit Gibsons May 26 and will look into  possibilities for industrial development in the community.  Mr. Kersey will also visit businessmen in the area and possibly attend a chamber of commerce meeting.  Alderman Norman Watson of  Sechelt council explained at last  week's meeting of council that  he is looking into possibilities  of a small boat complex in vicinity of Porpoise Bay wharf.  His visualization included a  possible $10,000 development of  the mext five years. He claimed it was a suitable location for  sport boats, hydroplane racing  and water skiing as it was one  area in which there was little  driftwood. He was also looking  into possibilities of government  assistance under the Small Boats  act.  CAR ACCIDENT  Alex Skytte of Gibsons failed  to remain on the road approaching the S turn from Gibsons.

R. BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa  Bulbs and tubers are problems this month. Batches of  hyacinths, daffodils and tulips  that have received their initial  cold treatment, should be  brought to a slightly warmer  place for a week and then to  the light and heat of the upstairs windows.  Place paper cones over the  young emerging shoots of hyacinths to elevate the blooms  high above the leaves; a one-  inch hole should be left at the  top of each cone to assist in  this   development.  Inspect dahlia tubers that  have been stored in sand or  vermiculite. If they appear  shrivelled at all, sprinkle them  with water and reinsert in the  medium. Take a look at your  gladiolus corms this month and  discard any that show signs  of-rot..  By now they all should have  been cleaned and at the same  time dusted with a combination  fungicide and insecticide to  ward off attacks of thrips and  some diseases.  If they have already started  to grow, your storage is probably too warm, and you should  move them to a place where  the temperature may be kept  cooler. To do this, screen off  an area in your basement where  the window can be left open for  short periods. If the corms  make too much top growth before the planting season, they  will provide very short flower-  heads.  On the other hand, if the cellar is still very cold at the end  of March, it might be advisable to try to accelerate shoot  formation by placing the bulbs  in a warmer temperature.  I hope no one has Christmas  azaleas in their basement drying off. This is not the place  for these plants at all; they  should; be kept continually watered and growing until mid-  May, when they must be plunged out into the garden for forcing again next year.  . On the other hand, poinsettias  may be safely removed to the  basement at this time, where  they should be kept completely  dry until the end of April. At  that time, cut the shoots back  and start into growth in a sunny window and then, after the  danger of frost has passed,  plant in a semi-shady part of  the garden. Leave them here  until mid-September when they  must be brought inside once  more.  Toward the end of this month,  branches of pussy willow, for-  sythia, spirea and other early-  blooming shrubs jmay be  brought indoors and placed in  containers of water in a warm,  light room. They will come into  full bloom very quickly, providing a very lovely foretaste of  Spring to come.  A warning to those who have  been influenced by the flamboyant seed catalogues and are  itching to get seeds sown immediately. The only seeds one  should sow right now are pan-  sies,    phlox,    coleus, begonias,  geraniums    lobelias    and dusty.  millers,  for these  are  slow to  start.  Do not attempt this, unless  you have ample fluorescent light  fixtures for growing plants, or  a good heated greenhouse at  hand.  Most annual s germinate  quickly, and before you know  it, ��� every available .window in  the house will be taken up with  flats, baking tins or bread pans  filled with growing vegetation.  The plants will grow taller and  taller and finally become very  weak unless proper light is avail  able. A good rule to follow is  never to plant fast - growing  annuals and vegetables more  than eight weeks before trans-,  planting time. In eastern Canada, this would mean that no  seeds should be sown before  March 18th except very slow-  growing plants. In the prairie  provinces April 18 would be a  better date for sowing seeds outdoors.  NATURE'S WATERWORKS  The root system of a tree  extracts an enormous quantity  of water from the soil, making  the tree a very active waterworks. On a single summer's  day a middle-sized apple tree  will lift 800 lb. of water out  of the ground spraying all but  a small part of that water into  the air. All vegetation, of  course, acts as waterworks. A  stalk of corn can lift up 440  lb. of water in its growing season, and an acre of lush grass  will lift up more than six tons  of water on a June day.

At the same table sits  the clerk of the court, who is  also gowned. The clerk is referred to as Mr. Registrar, the  clerk being the deputy of the  registrar who is the official in  charge of the court registry (or  office), and all records, etc.  A small raised enclosure called the witness box is provided  for those testifying.  A counsel table is provided  behind which, facing the judge,  sit the lawyers engaged ��� with  their backs to the public portion of the court room. The  lawyers are similarly gowned,  with Queen's counsel wearing  a more elaborate gown than  those who have not attained  this  distinction.  There is a low fence separating the portion of the court  described, called the well of  the court. Within the well is a  jury box which is at right  angles to the bench and which  is opposite and facing. the witness box.  On the other side of the fence  is the public portion of the court,  where anyone may enter and  hear the proceedings. There  are three entrances: One behind the bench through which  the judge preceded by the clerk  enters; one for counsel", and  one for the public, which is not  in the well.  The witnesses stand (or on  the invitation of the judge, sit)  in the witness box and are  sworn in by the clerk. All testimony is in the form of questions and answers, the lawyers  asking the witnesses the questions and the witnesses directing their replies to the judge  (and jury if there is"one). Tfee  court recorder takes down' all  questions and answers in shorthand or on a machine. A typewritten record of the trial may  be obtained later.  The registrar handles all the  documents in the case, has  charge of the court registry file,  receives and marks with a no  all exhibits, and generally is  in charge of all routine matters in connection with tlhe  trial.  A jury is rare in a civil trial,  but if there is one, they decide all questions of fact upon  the direction of the judge, that  is, they decide which witnesses  are truthful or otherwise, who  they believe and disbelieve and  make a finding as to the facts  of the case in dispute.  The .judge.. decides all questions of law. In the absence of  a jury he acts as judge and  jury. At the end of the trial  he renders his decision.  The dignified atmosphere and  appearance of the court in session is designed to impress witnesses' and the public with the  necessity for respect for the  court and its proceedings. Witnesses are much more liable to  be   truthful  in  these  surround  ings.

LETTERS  u  Editor: Apropos editorials con  cerning the possibility of socialism coming to British Columbia.  The socialist society of the  late 1960s has contained and developed as many varieties as  has the capitalist society. Witness Hungary and Czechoslovakia. Witness fascism, the John  Birchers, the liberals of both  socialism and capitalism as well  as the conservatives of each.  Marx wanted humanism and  individualism to rise within the  confines of a capitalistic society.  Lenin and Trotsky, early socialistic theorists, could not agree  on these factors but were strict  Marxists in their time. When  German workers failed to revolt  Lenin took a hard, bureaucratic  line. Trotsky fled, when Stalin  took over, Stalin's purges and  the frightening police state.  Mao possibly presents the  broadest socialistic theory in  vogue today but it is completely  at odds with Russia's communistic form of socialism which  has acquired the materialism of  capitalism. In fact, varying  writers have commented on the  similarities between capitalism  and communism.  vEven on the question of freedom, capitalism1 today is on the  road to overtaking communism  on this subject of individual  freedom. Witness the vast mergers- the enormous corporative  control, the press and electronic control of news. Materialism,  completely unrelated to humanism, envelops and strangles both  Each, chameleon - like, can  change its colors, not so much  to hide as to proclaim. But until we have something better,  we need each. It may take 290  years to reach that goal, but  whether we like it or not both  the activists at the universities  and the hippies in their haze are  having an impact on society and  may  accelerate the   arrival  of  the change.  Trudeau points out in Federalism and the French Canadians  that socialism will not work in  Canada without changes to the  British North America Act.  It is a question of moral change.  It is natural that most people  think of sexual behavior when  morals are,mentioned. Materialism is a far more pressing question, It degrades as it pervades  any society.  Unfortunately the one organization that can and should deal  with questions of morals, the  church, is materialistic in outlook and control. There was a  day when a minister could not,  with impunity, speak againsts  materialism. That should have  passed and the church, per se,  can now speak against the evils  of materialism. In so doing, it  would speak against both . the  wealthy and the poor; the  church warden and the athiest;  the professional and the laborer;  the charlatan and the naive;  the union leader and the politician; the unionist and the non-  unionist; the skidroad bums and  prostitutes and the social kings  and queens.  Materialistic leaders, capitalist and communist, fearful of  change, promote tension and  war.  The church will one day take  up this fight against the immorality of materialism. To do  so it will require broader knowledge, broader outlook and a  more complete understanding of  human nature and behavior, in  fact a continuing study on this  subject alone. Above all, the  church must understand and  conquer fear, for fear itself can  and does promote materialism,  and fear becomes immoral.  ���H. F. Harris,  Soames   Point.

His speech will set the tone for  small group discussion between  adults and young people.  The drop-in session is the outgrowth of a series of meetings,  initiated by the school board, between students, teachers and  school board members. This  group has become increasingly  concerned1 about the misuse of  drugs and alcohol in the community and the lack of communications between and within  generations.  The objective of the drop-in  session is to give both adults  and young people a chance to  talk to each other about their  problems. Dr. Wong's address  was designed to create the climate for such a discussion. The  public, both adults and young  people, are urged to attend.  Greene Court  selected as  name  The   name  is   Greene   Court.  Directors of the Sunshine  Coast Housing society have had  several discussions on the name  for the Senior Citizens Homes.  General feeling bas been that  the name should in some way  ���honor Canon Greene who had  the vision of such a project  and has been the first president  of the society. Many names have  been submitted from many  sources and they include the  following: Greene Haven,  Greene Port, Greene Acres,  Greene Court, Greece Homes,  Greene Shores, Greene Park,  Greene Bay and Greene Hedges.  Some consideration was given  to the fact that the second group  of ten units may be forthcoming  this year if the present rate  of donations is maintained and  hence the name must cover the  whole project. It was because  of this situation that one unique  idea was presented by a local  citizen, who said since Canon  Greene is a master mariner  why not call one side Greene  Starboard and the other side  Greene Port. This may have a  fine nautical connotation but it  depends where you are standing  as to what side it may be and1  would be very confusing to  those who had no .nautical background ro knowledge.  The directors feel sure that  even if some do not like their  choice of name that all will  agree that it is much better  than continually using the name  senior citizens homes.

Good rec  By ED THOMSON  Before a large and .appreciative audience of parents and  music lovers, the visiting ^McPherson Park School award-,  winning band of Burnaby and  the ' Elphinstone School band  gave an inspiring Spring' concert, in Elphinstone Secondary  school auditorium Wednesday  evening of last week. The proceeds of the*entertainment were  in aid of the proposed trip by  Elphinstone band to the Abbots-  ford International Band Festival, their first away-from-home  performance in competition with  bands from all over the province and United States.  The visitors were smartly uniformed in crested blue blazers  and numbering 59 boys and  girls up to Grade 9, under the  capable baton of Kerry Turner,  led off with a rousing Dixieland Festival, a group of three  contemporary American folksongs. The concluding number,  When the Saints Come Marching In, was played with plenty  of verve and all-out brass, featuring an instrumental trio of  trumpet, clarinet and trombone,  which filled the auditorium.  The young musicians were  equally at home in Grundman's  English Suite, a delightful collection of English folk songs,  as in the martial tempo of British Grenadiers and the gay  lilting Offenbach opus.  The baton was then turned  over to Bandmaster Frank  Postlethwaite and his Elphinstone group of 33 eager young  musicians from Grades 8 to 11  who fully demonstrated their remarkable progress during the  past seven months. The selections ranged from War March  of  the  Priests  to a most  am-  visiting band  ROBERTS CREEK  Big nigh, May ]  (By  MADGE NEWMAN)  Mr. and Mrs. S. E.

Coast News, revealed that the departments of  fisheries and Indian Affairs',  along with a private company  are working on a shrimp fishery for the central British Columbia coast.  Word came from the office of  Paul St. Pierre, Coast-Chilcotin  MP that the Millbanks firm at  Bella Bella is working with government officials on this pro-  ect. Millbanfcs is now in the Salomon business at. Bella Bella. It  is expected the new shrimp fisheries would provide more jobs  for members of the Indian bands  Nurses meet  ���An enjoyable evening was  spent by the Registered Nurses,  of the Sunshine Coast Chapter,  when they entertained Miss.E.  Graham, executive director of  the R.N.A.B.C. at an informal  dinner meeting in the Welcome  Cafe, Gibsons, April 14.  Miss Graham spoke at.length  qn the many committees functioning within the RNABC bringing members up to date on new  data available, much of which  is in the field of education. The  latter assists the professional  nurse in meeting the changing  needs in nursing service to the  public.  Next meeting, a business  meeting will be held at the  home of Mrs. M. David, R.N.,  Roberts Creek, on May 5 at  8 p.m.  bitipus presentation of Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C^Sharp  Minor. In King of the Road,  PeterTEnglish and Greg Lemrpke  brought out the best in the bass  section while Tony Baker's  trumpet solo set the mood Es-.  pagnole for the colorful Granada.  They continued with Moon  River, John Henry, Vanguard  March and Mambo-Jambo, all  equally well received and again  reflecting the enthusiasm of the  pupils so well imparted by their  leader.  At the intermission, Mr. Turner, congratulating the Elphinstone musicians, commented on  the good feeling so evident in  the group, helping them attain  a good balance in their playing  and which undoubtedly had  brought them such a long way  in such a short time.  Musically the highlight came  in the second part of the program when the McPherson Park  School musicians presented the  Marriage of Figaro. Even the  most intricate passages of this  work had a sure, professional  touch. This number will be one  of the test pieces the Burnaby  Band will present in Vancouver  next week at the B.C. Musical  Festival.  As a stirring finale to their  second portion; of the program  the martial strains of Marche  LaMar gave the brass section  plenty of scope.  The audience was treated to  a  delightful .  and    unexpected ;  surprise at the conclusion of the  two-hour program, as both bands >  merged    for    two unrehearsed y'i  . selections,   the   first  a   swingy'  Latin     American     number   in  dance tempo followed by Frere7  Jaques,     a favorite  traditional'7  round that gave all sections of  the  combined bands  an  opportunity to perform this concluding piece, again under the expert    direction    of Bandmaster  Postlethwaite.  Baking moves fast  The rummage, bake and tea .  sale held by the Parents' Auxiliary to Roberts Creek School at  the Legion Hall on Friday was  well attended. The home-baked  goodies in charge of Mrs. N.  Ball quickly sold out, and Mrs.  D. Hairsine, in .the book stall  and Mrs. A.
