 Provinola 1" L1 br'ary,  Victoria,   B.   C.  SERVING   THE  GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gibsons,   B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 22 '   '  Number 7, February 19,  1969  10c per copy  School district librarian's  resignation is accepted  John C Bell, school district  librarian, presented his resignation to take effect at the end  of the school term, to the school  board at its Thursday night  meeting, and after considerable  discussion it was accepted.  Mr.: Bell attended the board  meeting to present, his/ annual  report on school ,l_brary cbhdi-  tions. Before offering, hisYanriual  report he delivered sealed envelopesto board- members with,  the proviso that they sliould hot  be opened until he had coilclud-  ed his remarks.-'��� 7);^Yv,--- Y.77:'7  Instead of delivering Hhe annual report he launched :into his  opinion of the. current policy of  the school board in which he  claimed .that .the - iboard . was  wrong in assuming it had overspent its operating budlget, that  school boards were not instruments of the provincial government and that the schools need  ed more not less staff.  The statement by Mr. Bell was  of considerable length and took  more than five minutes to read.  At the conclusion some trustees  declared Mr. Bell -was out of  order. The issue was quickly  settled with Mr. Bell retiring to  his seat to await the in-camera  committee session at the end of  the regular meeting when per-,  sonnel matters are discussed.

YY  Here  is  the7{greater, part  of  Mr.   Bell's   submission   to   the  board:  j- It is with regret that I tender  my resignation as district librarian effective June 27.  _  This action has been taken after careful examination of premises upon which current policy*  of the board1 of school trustees  appears, to be based. The-premises arid my reasons for questioning their validity are r out-. -  lined as follows:  Premises:  1. That   this   school  district  overspent its budgeted; amounts  in  sections  A to D  (operating  sections) of the 1968 budget Djf"  $275,260. .7  2. That over-expenditure in  1968 justifies a reduction in expenditures in 1969. ���..  .3. ��� YThat this school district  must cut its education costs in  (Continued on Page 5)  To limit  wharf  parking  Paid parking for, ten cars on  Gibsons government wharf has  been proposed to Gibsons muni-,  cipal council by the department^  ofi transport within whose juris- '  diction government wharves are  placed. .Controlled boat docking  atf government floats is also recommended.    .        77  The. matter came before council^ at Tuesday night's meeting  with Aid. Wally Peterson in the  chahv due to the absence of  Mayor Fred Feeney involved in  B.C. Telephones company operations.        ,  A letter from, the. department  requests that parking on the  ramp be stopped completely and  that space for ten cars be allotted on a paid basis centred in  tj-efrarea between the ramp and  th^end of-the wharf.  Before an audience of more  than 50 prominent citizens, Martin Dayton, consulting engineer  for Gibsons municipality, outlined the $2,500,000 harbor development - report now under-  close study by Mayor Fred  Feeney and aldermen.

It is understood that plans  riave already been prepared for  instruction of a private road  jrom Porpoise Bay road to an  f.rea southeast of the Indian  cemetery where gravel from  Ugher up on the reserve will  }e trucked to a stockpile area,  from this region the gravel  'ill be transported by belt from  jie stockpile towards the highway where it will be tunnelled  |ider the highway to water-  gvel and deposited on 150 foot  barges for transportation to  wherever required.

Waterfront Promenade Walkway: A one mile long ten foot  wide public walkway would extend completely around the harbor shoreline. Alt/hough the  walkway would be built on the  water side of privately owned  land, it would still be necessary  to obtain riparian rights from  the upland owners before the  walkway and foreshore could be  developed. The walkway would  also contain a sanitary intercepting sewer as' outlined in a  .   subsequent chapter.

Liquor  Control Board's last two annual reports show that for 1967  the Sechelt and Gibsons government liquor stores took in  $701,000 and for 1968 the figures  would be $807,000. These totals  do not include sales at other  outlets where liquor and beer  can be obtained. An, estimate  for both years that the total  liquor consumption in dollar  value would be $1,000,000 give  or take either way.

In* the; meantime-the letter,  written after consultation with  the RCMP, was tabled while the  two committees look over the  situation- and come up with its  own recommendations. It was  suggested that perhaps, the best  way to handle the issue would  be to turn control of the wharf  and floats over to Harry Smith  who runs the marina in the same  area; Mr. Smith is also harbor  master.  A complaint about log booming in the harbor area was also  drawn to the attention pf council and it was decided to find  out just what could be done to'  alleviate; this situation.  Ben Lang's request that he be  allowed to turn the former  school board office into suites  was approved in principle provided the health authorities are  satisfied^ that the situation  would allow three or four suites  to be constructed.  .WWWUlUUlW\tt\W\(UWMW��lMW��lHUUnUUHU\IUtmlUI?

This rent runs to $16 per meeting and the auxiliary has $75  set aside for such expense, but  when the Canadian Union of  Public Employees, members of  which include school janitor  staffs, claimed it was their job  to clean up the school board de  cided the best policy was for it  to subsidize the Trent for this  season. The board will take care  of the $170 involved till the end  of the term. "  The union president explains  the union's policy inthe following letter to the Coast News:  Editor: In your issue of Jan.  29, you carried an item with  the heading Janitors Protest/  With your permission, and as  president of Local 801, Canadian Union of Public Employees, I wish to set the record  straight from the union viewpoint.  In the first place, the collective agreement between the  school board and the union provides that a janitor will be on  duty at any function taking  place in the school. All union  members are obligated to abide  by the collective agreement in  many other respects which  means that the board must also  live up to the agreement in this  specific reference to janitors at  functions.  In the second place, a janitor  is on duty at a special function  for the protection of the people particularly in that function. For example, if the lights  went out, or in the case of a  fire or any other emergency,  the janitor would be competent  to deal with the situation.^ Similarly, in case of rowdyism, the  janitor would contact the police  or school board officials.  In the third place, .the janitor  must clean up the premises before the next school session".  In our opinion, this provision  for a janitor to be on duty at  functions (specifically functions  after school hours) is a protection for those participating in  the function and is also in the  interests of the school board and  the taxpayers as a whole.

If the vote for St.Mary's Hospital expansion passes with a  good majority the- minister of  health might overlook thex waiting period of one month and  allow architect drawings to  start immediately, Harvey  Hubbs, board member of the  Regional Hospital District has  learned.  Mr. Hubbs informed the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce  dinner meeting Monday night at  Cedar's Inn that the minister  would do all he could to help  if there was a good-sized majority in favor. Mr. Hubbs  spoke briefly on the needs for  such a majority.  nanwmimiiiimnmwimnntnai  Indian wins judgment  Monday's County Court decision that Indians are not subject  to the Motor Vehicle act when  driving cars on their reserve  brings up again the question of  non-Indians becoming involved  in trespassing charges if found  on the -reserve, without having  received permission to be there.  The case arose when Basil Joe  of the S'echelt band was fined  $10 last July in magistrate's  court for having outdated plates  on his car while driving on the  reserve.  County Court Judge McClel-  Ian has ruled that Joe was on a  private road and that the MVA  did not  apply.  Crown  Counsel  Allen Melvin agrued the act  does apply. Tom Berger was  counsel for Joe.'  The judge commented that the  Indian band may not have been  as strict as it might have been  in connection with stopping  members of the public from using the road. However he said  he could understand the reason  because of the friendly relations  between the Sechelt Indian band  and the community.

Y. -  Some blunt talk!  > The school district librarian, John C. Bell, showed1 considerable  brashness in his method of presenting his resignation to the school  board. He was brash because he took advantage of a captive audience and instead of presenting his annual report on the school libraries took it upon himself to berate the school board with what  was an "or else" ultimatum.  It is quite likely that before the board's in-camera session decided on accepting the resignation that some blunt talk ensued.  There was reason for it because Mr. Bell's submission contains  some erroneous thoughts on the place o�� the board and its secretary-treasurer in the educational setup. .  ;ttcbul<i b<l:that Mr. Bell took it upon himself to advance a step  furffi^^tlieT^echelt Teachers Association request for a meeting  witli^e^iiio^rd to c^ri^'^^atement that the board can cut the  budget without lowering the educational standard in the district.  His barbs were directed to the secretary-terasurer and to the Iboard  at large. *, 7    -..���. ���������'.MY       ! Y ��� ' J-    -   '   .0-  ���  If Mr. Bell desired to ,do a better job than what he did he  could have addressed his remarks- to the department of education  inTylctoria and to Mr. Bennett-, the provincial premier and finance  minister. The district school board is in the position of being completely unable to accede to Mr. Bell's request or to similar requests  from any other member of the teaching staff. ���  It. is unable to do so because of the confined financial limitations imposed on the board, not by the secretary-treasurer tout by  the minister of education and his deputies.-  Perhaps Mr. Bell, enthused with the protest movement that has  engulfed our universities figured that some of it might help at  the public school level. One can sympathize with Mr. Bell. He has  done a good job in the district but his demands, in view of the situation over which the (board has no control, are such that the board  cannot help him.  Perusal of Mr. Bell's report on the book situation in elementary schools reveals quite a shortage according to departmental  standards. Total books now available for 1,513 elementary students  is 12,532 while the department maintains there should be 28,120.  Mr. Bell recommends that to overcome this shortage, if money  cannot be provided by the 1969 budget, that at the next referendum  taxpayers should be asked to approve expenditure of $56,290 to  raise elementary school libraries to departmental standards.  Hope is eternal  With work progressing on the crosswalk light at the Gibsons  Elementary school corner it is interesting* to note that five years  ago the Parent-Teachers Association of Gibsons advocated that this  be done.  At the same time Tony Gargrave, CCF member in the legislature five years ago urged the roads department to replace the  bridge over the creek at Granthams. Well, the bridge (beat the light  by a little more than a year or so.  Maybe before the turn of the century the roads system of the  Sunshine Coast anight receive the same loving care as that showered on another part of the province. Who knows!  Coast News  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Both Gibsons and Sechelt municipal councils have registered  protests with Victoria officials  over the fact the school board  budget is presented to them for  an OK without time being allowed for any examination.  A cast of 60 persons was announced as taking part in the  Fandango presentation in Roberts Creek Community hall.  Giibsons PTA is agitating for  a crosswalk traffic light at the  busy Elementary school corner.  Tony Gargrave,, CCF member  of the legislature advocated a  new bridge over the creek at  Granthams during the Throne  Speech debate.  10 YEARS AGO  A B.C. Telephones summary  of phone growth on the Sunshine Coast reveals that the  number doubled to 1,039 between Jan. 1, 1955 and Jan. 1,  1959.  The school board is anxiously  awaiting   the. word  from   Vic  toria on its new building program in order to get the necessary referendum prepared.  A piano was donated to the  Halfmoon Bay Community hall  by Mr. and Mrs. Jack Burrows.  Halfmoon Bay Hospital auxiliary presented St. Mary's Hospital at Pender Harbour with a  $100 cheque for the modernizing  of the hospital kitchen.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons main street is really  taking a beating. It is torn up  and buckled and when the rest  of the snow goes there won't be  much road left.  Mr. W. Gilbert was elected  president and Mr. Peter Donaldson, vice-president, of the  Roberts Creek Canadian Legion  branch 219.  Gibsons cemetery committee  decided io delay expansion of  the cemetery site when it was  learned it would cost about  $1,000 to add another acre to it.  Pender Harbour reports the  old flu bug has quite a number  of residents in its clutches.  By ERIC THOMSON  These words are the Gaelic  title of a bagpipe pibroch, and  the English of it is The End of  the Little Bridge-  According to tradition the  tune has to do with a clan battle at Iiwerlochy in 1645. It is  a short tune, ��� it was a short  bridge, it isn't much of a tune.  ��� it couldn't have been tnauoh  of a bridge. It is remarkable  for having no less than 8 variations on the theme.  *       *       *  The unknown composer was  not to know that this dirge more  than two centuries later would  fittingly lament the wanton destruction of our little footbridge  over the mouth of Langdale  Creek, and the eight-fold variations illustrate the wafflings of  those in authority over us to  dodge the replacing of it.  The original Burns who was  the first settler on the property  between Port Mellon Highway  and. the sea.;. on the south bank  of Langdale Creek built Ms  home near its mouth, and dropped a couple of trees at a convenient point nearby, floored  them with cedar pungs, and  there was the first bridge.  This lasted a long time, but  when Mr. Gordon Chutter  acquired the property on the  other side of the creek, he, being in the wire rope business,  neatly replaced this bridge with  a suspension bridge for his own  and for general use, arid this  lasted until the Black Ball Ferries created the Langdale Terminal, when Capt. Ezra Pea-  body replaced Mr. Chutter's  bridge with a substantial wooden one capable of taking a car  or truck, and thisYis the one  which has been destroyed. ���  Some years ago, after the  Salvation Army acquired what  had been the Burns farm, somebody left it ia lot of money, and  not long after that there was..  a notice posted up at the Hopkins Landing post office that  the Army was going to apply  to close that part of Burns  Road which crossed its property and gave access to the  bridge.  Drums beat along the Langdale, as once they had beaten  along the Mohawk. They were  not Salvation Army drums, but  the natives rose, and petitioners going one" way tripped over  petitioners going the other way.  lawyers, residents, hired and  retired were engaged by various interested landowners, and  at the hearing in Vancouver  about the end of June, the  Registrar of Titles' office was  crowded with these gentry, prepared to meet the Army head  on.  The Registrar, however, was  going on a month's; vacation  that afternoon, and, ;anxious to  get away, and figuring that this  nest of hornets which the army  had disturbed would detain him,  saved the situation- by adjourning the matter generally, that  is to say, put it back in the  fridge until he got back, with  liberty to any party to revive  it.  This application withered on  the vine and  apparently  died.  CREATURES   OF   THE| WILD  Man unconsciously humanizes  animals. He attributes to them  cruelty, vindictiveness, hate,  meanness,    fear,    bravery and  cowardice, not realizing these  are but vague terms conveying  different meanings to different  persons and applicable to man  only. For this reason he is inclined to lose sight of the fact  that killing is an unsocial act  only in human communities arid  that among the animal population it is vital to existence. The  killing of the weak for the benefit of the strong, the survival  of those best fitted to survive,  the balance in numbers brought  about Iby various complex forms  of relationship is still' the law  of the animal world in which  man is an intruder at all times.  Thus predation is an integral  part of the machinery by which  all animal populations are made  to function.  but in the  preparation .of the  objectors' case, it,.becairie evident that the Army ,y/as ajbii.  off base. '.-*'*    -  When the survey of this road  allowance through what was  then the Burns' property had  been made, and the road opened, the original Burns got the  job of clearing the right of way,  and as he was in truth monarch  of all he surveyed, he simply  bent the road allowance where  it entered his property so that  it joined on to his bridge, and  that became the road; that is  still in use, the Crown's surveyed road allowance lying fallow nicely inside the?Army's  fence. Instead of a s\yap being  made between the.highways department arid the Army, they  have left it that way.  ���     * ,. *   ' * ''���������'  Last year the highways department at fantastic cost, enlarged Langdale Terminal, and  one of the things to be done  was to face the banks of Langdale Creek with rocks ;to prevent erosion, and this was-done  by trucking enough of Soames  Hill to do the job.  When the contractor got upstream to the bridge, he just  up-ended it into his empty truck  and dumped it at the south.side  of the logging road leading up  from Bal's to the quarry on -  Soames Hill, where, like John  Brown's body, it lies mouldering, but unburied. Its soul may  be getting ready to march.  .. y  ���   ���.; f     *     *Y" Y'7  The immediate reaction to this  was a flood of letters of complaint to the Arrny and to our  ministers : of the Crcxwn wi_h  and without portfolio, /and the  usual petition, this one containing several hundred names. The  result, a flood of crocodile tears  enough to put the Langdale. in  spate, and a vague ��� suggestion;  that the matter would be ,lookr  " ed into.    - ��� J ;������ ��� ;'YY' .'' yi'' T ���  From other sources it was  learned that. when the plans for  the ^present, terminal at .Langdale were drawn at Victoria,  no provision was made for a  bridge, and that was ail, there"''���  was to it. Meanwhile the summer came, arid the creek dropped, and it just needed a short '  plank to get across it, and this  was supplied by the Kerbis boy,  who delivered the papers from  the ferry along that way, as  long as the supply , of planks  held out, but they were constantly removed by somebody,  and the north end of the present road more;or less closed  off by part of an old wire fence  and other scrap iron, but passageway was still 'possible, until  the fall rains raised.the creek.  * * Jilt was at this stage of the .  water that my grand-daughter  arid her cousin Tony, not knowing that there was no longer  a bridge, took this short-cut in  a hurry to catch the ferry, and  rather ; than wait for the next  one, went in up to their waists  to ford the creek, but did not  have time to dance themselves  dry to the? pibroch's sound, but  got their ferry and went home  wet. - '���-'   -  A few weeks ago there arose  on the Terminal side    of    the  creek a  tali wire fence,  with  posts    set    in concrete. There  was' no provision made for a  , gate level with the end of Burns  Road, but further up, level with  the Army buildings, there are  not one, but two pearly gates  into Green "Pastures or New  Jerusalem for the faithful, who  make use of the property for  about eight weeks a year.  The lower part of the creek,  with a wire fence on either  bank now looks like~ an emasculated replica of the Berlin Wall.  The mention of the fact atTLang-  dale that there was no provision  v for a bridge, elicited the reply  that it was a gowl thing top,  that it would prevent people  from getting in the, way of cars  .racing for the, ferry. -This improvement of amenity seems to  have had its effect on the assessor, for taxes on a 50-foot  waterfront lot at Hopkins this  year have -jumped* $300.        7  There remains to Consider  what can be done to remedy  this disgraceful brush-off of a  reasonable request. The Gibsons  and District Chamber of Commerce is" far to far away to be  interested, the Regional Planning "Board proliferates in its  ivory tower at Davis Bay, and  direct action by blowing a hole  in the fence might prove j unpleasant, but it does hold the  germ of an idea.      ,  One of the Victoria radio stations has for years offended  many listeners ��� with a rather  saucy tune "I'm off to join the  I.R.A." ��� you know it, ��� and  in their day those Irish rebels  did some nice demolition jobs,  and metaphorically speaking,,  rather than turn belly-up and  float out into oblivion on the  waters of the Langdale, it might  be just possible for the dissatisfied local voters to blow the  Bennett government sky-high at  the forthcomingelection and  their fence along with them.

Plans for the spring project,  a fashion show April 1, were discussed and committee heads  were appointed to work out details of the arrangements.  It was reported that the wool  afghan has been completed and  Mrs. Swan will be in charge of  the raffle tickets for same. The  winning ticket is to be drawn  the evening of the fashion show.

It is antioipated that  there will be a surplus of material from the: dredging operation and that this material  will Toe suitable for! widening  and extending two beach areas.  Some 1,500 feet of improved  beach area would be constructed, partly as an extension to  the existing beach near the  north boundary of the Village  and the other south of the floating breakwater groin. Both  beach areas have been located  to provide physical separation  between beach , users and marine traffic.  Public Outdoor Swimming  Pool: A 25 meter filtered salt  wateir swimming pool with diving ell is shown at beach level  in front of the recreational area  noirth of the Government Wharf.  A beach service building with  filter room, changerooms, lifeguard centre and concession  counter adjoins the pool area.  Waterfront Land Use: The  waterfront,has been divided into  light industrial, commercial,  multiple family, single family  and recreational zones, which  are discussed in the subsequent  chapter on land use.  Outer Harbor and Floating  Breakwater: The outer harbor  between the island and a proposed 2,000 foot floating breakwater would serve primarily as  a Harbor of Refuge with ancillary services' and would have  sufficient area to allow for future expansion.  Mr. Dayton explained that the  various municipal utilities required for the harbor development plan are discussed in the  report. Sewerage, water, drainage, fire protection, garbage  collection, electric power and  telephone can all be provided  without difficulty through systems that are either existing or  planned for the future.  The' proposed highway bypass around Gibsons is of major  interest to the harbor development plan. A route for the new  access to the highway is recommended. It starts at the island causeway at the foot of  Prowse Road and follows Charman Creek through presently  undeveloped lands to a control-7 ;  led intersection with the newY  highway.  The recommended development plan contains proposals  for utilizing the harbor .foreshore for recreation, 'light industry, commerce, multiple  family dwellings and single  family dwellings.  Outlining a" future cburse of  action for Gibsons council to  implement the harbor development plan he said adoption in  principle, of the plan and application to dept. of lands for wa-  terlot leases, negotia_ions. for  riparian rights, and application  under Navigable Waters Protection Act, come first.  Establishment of, development standards and specifications, invitations to developers  and/or authority to raise public funds, commitments from  developers and/or the public,  would follow along with application to federal department of  public works for matching assistance, invitations to hotel developers, and establishment of  a capital works program t)o  acquire and develop public recreational areas.  The plan can be implemented  in stages commensurate with  need and financial ability. An  initial invesitment of $250,000 by  the village would enable the  scheme to proceed with ownership of the island vested in Gibsons.  and trained as a draughtsman     t  and designer; the disciplines of    "*  his profession show in* his paintings and his special feeling for  historic buildings.

Membership has dropped to a  tragically low level and it is not  too easy to get enough members  together to-1 form a quorum at  annual meetings. This, year the  annual meeting will be held on  the" evening of April 21 at a  place to be announced later. Put  the date down now and keep  that evening free for one of the  most important public meetings  of the year.  One cannot vote at this meeting unless a paid-up member^  so set aside that $2 membership  fee and have it ready for the  auxiliary canvasser.  The Board of Directors of the  hospital" is elected annually at  these meetings, and if interest^  ed in having the hospital well  run, turn out to the annual meet  ing and. elect your representatives.

Drug lectures  Programs for study of Family Life arid Drugs at district  schools were outlined at last  Thursday's school board meeting by Walter J. Barton, elementary supervisor.  One session has been held at  some of the schools during  early February but a wider  program will cover four weeks  in March in the elementary  schools. There are two films involved Boy to Man and Girl to  Woman which will be shown.  Senior students may have a  panel including a doctor, minister and member of the RCMP  at one of the meetings, with  whom they can ask questions  specifically on the drug menace.

Activities during the year  were the April fashion show by  Port Mellon's auxiliary, sponsored by Pender Harbour's auxiliary; the July bake sale on floats  at Garden Bay and the Fall Fair  and carnival in November.  The reports showed the Thrift  Shop continued profitable and  that the six auxiliaries presented several pieces of equipment  to the hospital. In November  hospital board members honored auxiliary members with an  Appreciation Tea which was followed by a .tour of hospital facilities and demonstration of the  uses, of hospital equipment  which they had helped to provide.  Mrs. D. Philp, retiring president, thanked all members for  their efforts during the year  and pesented Mrs. Warden /with  a past president pin. Mrs. Warden who headed the nomination  committee for selection of the  year's officers announced who  they were and then installed  them. Mrs. D. Philp became  past president, Mrs. O.

The next meeting will be on  Wednesday March 12 at 2 p.m.  in Madeira Park Legion Hall.  A special service will be held  in St. Hilda's Anglican church  at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 2,  after which a social will be  held in the church hall to honor  Canon Alan Greene on his 80th  birthday.  The February meeting of Roberts Creek Auxiliary to the hospital at the home of Mr. and  Mrs; A. E. Mcllwaine, White  Avenue, heard Mrs. M. Tibb report on the Thrift Shop which  continues to thrive. Roberts  Creek memlbers will staff it on  Feb. 22.  A letter read by the secretary  requested moral support for a  suggested recreational centre  and this was voted on by a show  of hands.  It was learned that volunteer  workers in the hospital are required to have chest X-rays and  these would be available on  Monday and Thursday. Plans  for a current catering job were  finalized.  Refreshments were served by  the hostess following the meeting.'-  Leaders needed  Along with the general increase in population in the Gibsons area, Brownies and Girl  Guides are increasing, in numbers. Some 75 Brownies from  Gibsons and Langdale are enrolled iri three packs and 50  Guides from Gibsons, Langdale and Port Mellon are enrolled in two companies. Although all groups are staffed  with leaders at present, it will  be necessary to train more leaders to accommodate the increasing number of girls who wish  to participate in these worthwhile activities...  The present urgent need is  for women over 18 years of age  to come into the Guide companies as    helpers. "  Hold rehearsal  A pleasant evening was spent  at Roberts Creek school on Friday when parents and children  enjoyed a weekly get-together  for badminton and ping pong.  In the library a group rehearsed for a March 17 performance while in another part of  the building melody flooded the  air waves. Tea and coffee were  available.  The school will be open each  Friday night for recreation and  rehearsals.  BADEN POWELL SUNDAY  Sunday, Feb. 23, Baden Powell  Day will also be Thinking Day  for Girl Guides who will hold  a ceremony in the United  Church hall starting at 2 p.m.  There may be a gold cord presentation for this meeting.  (Continued from page 1)  order   to  have   good  relations  with Victoria.  4, That a reduction in present  teaching arid non-teaching staff  and' services will not impair  the district's "educational program.  Analysis of premises:  Premise 1: In terms of this  district's needs we were not  overspent by $275���2G0. Available  information shows that over-expenditure in sections A to D (operating sections) of the 1968  budget totalled only $19,430. It  is only under the terms of the  provincial government's new education finance formula, introduced in mid-1968 that this district's costs under sections A to  D when compared to an average  of the section A-O costs of all  British Columbia school districts  can be seen to exceed the average by $275,260.  Ought a district substitute for  its own standard of expenditure  a provincial government standard which has no relation to  the district's real needs? The  1968 expenditure of Sechelt, a  school district with unique needs  and above-average growth, cannot be realistically compared  to a provincial average.  The provincial government's  education finance formula appears to be designed to make  all school districts average-cost,  average-growth districts. This  school district is not, nor has it  ever been, an average-growth,  hence average-cost school district. Between 1958 and 1968 it  experienced a 51.6 percent increase in pupil enrolment ���  more than that of many districts. As pupil enrolment continues to rise this district will  remain one of British Columbia's most rapidly - growing  school districts. It will, as in  the past, need to pay more for  its educational program than a  district which experiences little  or no growth.  Premise 2: Since no great  over-expenditure in relation to  district needs was incurred in  1968 the premise that 1968 over-  expenditure justifies reduction  in 1969 expenditure is invalid.  PremiseY3: School .boards  are not-instruments of the provincial government. They are  elected by the public for the  purpose of providing for the educational needs of young people.  Their concern for the needs of  young people should not ibe subordinated to a concern for the  financial requirements of the  provincial government.  Premise 4: A good educational program does not occur,  fortuitously. It has taken many  years of effort andi expense to  build our educational program  to its present stage. Evidence  that residents of the district  want the type of educational  program provided by the board  up to now is shown by their  willingness to pay for it. To txf  gin to dismantle a program that  is yet incomplete and short of  its ultimate goals can only have  unfortunate consequences for  the young pe��x*^oT this district.  Our schools need more, not  less, staff and services if they  are to meet present and anticipated needs. The presence of  many underprivileged children,  Indian and non-Indian, in our  schools necessitates the provision of many services beyond  fhose now available. Specialist  teachers, adequate teaching  areas and necessary instructional materials, including library  books, must be added in greater  numbers if each child now enrolled in or about to enter our  schools <is to realize his maximum potential and contribute  to the well-being of this community.  Summary: As a member of  this district's professional staff  and as a member of the community, I am disturbed that the  board should hold the preceding  premises. The board has in recent months seemed unwilling to  believe that people of this district are interested in education.  It instead appears to entertain  the belief that residents wish a  cutback in expenditure toYthe  extent that the district's educa-  ional program can be curtailed.  I believe, however, that it would  be a serious mistake for the  board to regard the recent defeat of a school referendum as  a sign that the public desires  cutbacks. The referendum failed not because of any lack of  resignation  public interest.in education but  because the' board failed to com-,  municate clearly to the public  its intentions. ���  I am prepared to withdraw'  this resignation if the board  will:     , ���  1. Rescind the carte blanche  powers it has given the secretary-treasurer. It is of some  concern to me that the secretary-treasurer appears to have  sole responsibility for deciding  not only how much money will,  be allotted elementary school  libraries but whether professional staff positions,, including my  own, will be abolished. Such decisions should be made by the  board and not by its business*  manager. ;   . ,. .  2. Recognize that it may be  guided but not directed by the  district superintendent in educational matters.  The district ' superintendent  may make a recommendation to  the board that the district library's processing services for  two schools be terminated. The  board should riot be obligated to  regard his recommendation as  a directive. The advice of -the  district librarian and school librarians should be requested  when there is doubt that changes recommended by the district  superintendent would be in the1  best interests of district schools.  ���(Signed) John C. Bell.  Maintaining that the rate of  growth of elementary school libraries leaves much to be desired, John C. Bell, district  school librarian in his report to  the school board Thursday night  of last week, argued that the  schools must receive 15,678 additional volumes to meet department of education standards  for elementary schools.  He said that they should be  added over a period of three  years at a rate of 5,226 volumes  a year. He reported that he is  supported by elementary school  principals and teachers in repeating his 1967 recommendations that a capital grant of $56,-  290, divided in three yearly apportionments of $18,096 to raise  the basic collections to required  standards. He further recommended that as $18,096 cannot  be provided from, the 1969 dis..,  trict budget, taxpayers 'should  be asked to approve in the next  referendum the expenditure of  $5^,290 to raise elementary  school library collections to the  standards required by the department of education.  His report covering the use of  library books for the school  year ending June 1)968 revealed  that 1,425 pupils had on loan  39,864 books, an average of 27.9  books per pupil. From September 1964 to September 1968 a  total of 8,557 books were added  to the libraries. In June 1968  there were 12,532 books available for 1,513 pupils. Department requirements call for 28,-  210. Only one school is close to  its required figure, Gibsons elementary with 3,959. It should  have, according to departmental  requirements,   5,219.  Nurses meet  The Sunshine Coast chapter  of the Registered Nurses association of British Columbia  elected Mrs. JoAnn Rotluff as  president, Mrs. Marie Connor  vice-president, Mrs. Constance  Westall secretary, and Mrs.  Bessie Biett treasurer. Program  chairman will be Mrs. Judy  Weibe.  Members of the association  remind area residents that the  nurses have a variety of useful items which can be loaned  out fo persons requiring nursing in their home. There are  hospital beds, bed pans, urinals,  a vaporizer commodes and  wheelchairs along with other  items. For information on these  please phone Mrs. T. Lamb at  885-9975.  Nurses interested in returning  to such work are urged to consider the five week refresher  course offered by the Vancouver General hospital starting  April 18. Further information  can be obtained by phoning  886-2968.  The next meeting of the association will be held at the  home of Mrs. Marie Montgomery, West Sechelt on March 10  at 8 p.m. At this meeting all  nurses are welcome to hear  Rita Ono's trip to the United  Nations,   aided  by  slides.

'  Whitehorse, Yukon    territory  ������"'���-���. A popular topic of conversation herei is the weather on the  Chilcotin   'plateau,      mocassin  telegraph     reporting     that the  thermometers   had  dropped  to  7 70   below   and   thtafti jackpines  were exploding in the cold. Although Mayo, a couple of hun-  .:. dred miles to the north,  once  * reported  8CL below,   Whitehorse  itself   averages no  colder   than  the city of Winnipeg.  Fort ,Kae, Northwest Territories ��� Acting as chairman of  a public meeting in this Indian  community, I had the privilege  of witnessing a remarkable orator. He rose from the audience,  clad in parki�� and mukluks, and  began to speak in very low  tones. The silence spread  around him until the entire "  meeting hall was still as a deep  well.  ' For 20 minutes he had the  undivided attention of every  person in the meeting and the  only sounds, which came two  or three times, was the big collective sigh with which these  Indians express agreement. He  used his hands to gesture, but  only occasionally and never  with a  wasted movement.  I have not yet seen any man  so dominate the house of commons. Unfortunately, he spoke  only, in Dogrib and all his words  to the committee had to be filtered through an interpreter.  . Yellowknife, Northwest Territories ��� The Northwest Territorial council is composed of  five elected and three appointed  members; Yukon Territorial  council has six members, all  elected.  The conditions ... of the two territories ' aire not identical but  both councils, are in agreement  oar one thing. Each wants to  move beyond a status which is  little more than advisory to one  of more power and responsibility.       ':....  These are, in effect, the colonial people of Canada, their  mother country being the southern regions which they call The  Outside. Their complaints about  absentee control are much the  same ' as those of colonies  throughout history ��� the mother  country is indifferent to them,  doesn't appreciate them, taxes  them without giving them adequate representation, uses them  ahd misuses them for her own  purpose.  However, neither council feels  that their regions are yet sufficiently, developed to achieve  provincial status. Yukon Territorial council was interested in  Premier Bennett's suggested  annexation to the extent of asking Mr. Bennett to put his proposals before them. However  Premier Bennett never acknowledged receipt of their telegram  and Territorial councillors do  not find this attitude to their  taste.  Norman Wells, Northwest Territories ��� Alexander Mackenzie first reported oil here in  1789. The field has been,.producing since 1921 and the operation, shared on a two-to-one  basis by Imperial Oil and the  Canadian government, now produces over $660,000,000 in crude  oil annually. <y  This    is     one of the nortih's  major success stories, but ;the  field is a tiny1 one in comparison  with     the "v'big  strike off 'the"  Alaskan coast recently. ~  The ���'���' federal government is  now a 45 percent shareholder in  another partnership with private  oil interests��� the Panarctic  Consortium. Panarctic will start  an $18 million exploration in the  Arctic Islands next year with  the high hope that these may  contain an immensely rich oil  deposit. Recently, oil companies  signed up for $29,000,000 of exploration leases in; the Northwest.  In such happy event, we may  expect an accelerated program  of testing new dcebreaking  equipmentYfor northern water,  because ships will require much  better access to the Arctic sea.  A million arid a half is now being spent in fitting a device called the Alexbow to a northern  supply ship.  This icebreaker, which will  operate in a plowing motion instead of in the conventfional  way, might enable a very long  shipping season and year -  around sea transport in that  ocean is a possibility.  In short, North of Sixty is now  one of the most exciting parts  of Canada. Unfortunately far  too few Canadians ever see  it. This applies even to parliamentary committees on northern  affairs. Ours is the first to visit  the north in several years.  In 1922, Vilhjalmur Stefanssoi.  wrote "If the average American  or European university graduate has ten ideas about the  North, nine of them are wrong."  1 CROSSWORD  + .  By A.

A:; You have 8 days from the  time the summons is served (inclusive of the day of service)  to file a document in the Court  Registry indicating you are going to fight the action. If you,  read the summons again you-  wall see that it contains explicit instructions about this.

A: By leaving it at or maiil-  ' ing it (registered) to, the Company 's registered office���which  usually is not its place of business, but its lawyer's office ���  or by serving any director, n_an-  ager or other officer.  Q: I am suing a limited company but they have moved from  their office or are out of business. I found out from the office of /the Registrar of Companies where *the registered office was.

"���>:'���  ��� A:t The Company has;.{.'been;'  validly served Tunless they are  in process of changing the address of-the registered office.  A company has 15 days in which  to file noticeof such a change  with1 thellegistrar of Companies. Another search made 16  days afteryou effected the service should make the matter  certain.

The peasants were not permit-  ted^to cut trees, lout had permission to secure for heating  and cooking "whatever underbrush, limbs, twigs, etc. they  could reach by hook or by crook  what they could cut down with  a pruning hook or pull down  with a shepherd's crook. This  served the useful purpose of  keeping tree stands clear of  underbrush, dangerous in a fire,  and of superfluous and dead  limbs.

ISABEL DAWSON  Time flies when you're busy,  and time has) certainly .been  flying down here in Victoria, as  we're. about to head (into the  fourth week of the third session  of British Columbia's 28th  Parliament.  Debate has been hot and  heavy, and- the air is charged  with excitement and enthusiasm, especially since Premier  Bennett, in his capacity as minister of finance, presented his  miracle budget on Feb. 7 ��� the  first budget to top the one billion dollar mark in the province's history.  Some wonderful proposals and  programs were outlined in the  budget, as you' will already  have heard, but there were two  items of particular interest to  me in my work with our young  people and with our native Indians.  One item was the provision '���'"  of a $10 million perpetual fund  for Physical Fitness and Amateur Sports in British Columbia.  All my interviews with young  people from all walks of life  point up the value of community involvement with bur younger  citizens if they are to enjoy  successful, rewarding lives. And  to me, this Physical Fitness and  Amateur ySports Fundi sets the  pace for such involvement.  To quote the budget speech,  Grants have been paid each  year by the provincial government to a variety of sport and  activity groups throughout the  province, but the setting-up; of  this fund on a permanent basis.  allows us to increase provincial  expenditure in this field, and  at the same: time, ensure a continuity in annual grants to phy-  sicaMitness programs.

If you ask any teacher who  has sponsored one or any student committee who has ibeen  responsible  for  the  production  of one, you will be told that putting but a yearbook is one lbhg,7'  frustrating, heree-wT&ckihg.hpadY  ache. And yet; year a_Pter yearly:  some   teacher   sponsors, 'YtandY.  some committee struggles to get 7  the yearbook out. Why? We asked  students  why and Marilyn:  Hopkins came up with' the following very sound reasons:    Y  Why do we want or need a  yearbook? The main reason that  students want a yearbook is forY  a keepsake, something they will  always have to remember their  years in high school, their.fellow students and the variety of,  activities that were carried on.  Working    on ��� -the    yearbook  brings all kinds of students together.  It's not just the commerce   students  who put  together this book any more but everybody who is interested gets ,���'.  a hand at it now. When the annual is out there will be many  students with a feeling of satisfaction knowing that they put  some effort into it and there will  be none of "The only pictures  in there are  of people on the  yearbook    staff."    The    whole  school is the yearbook staff this  year.  , Another advantage of the year  book is that many students are  learning how to set up a project'  such as this. They are learning  a variety of new and interesting  methods that are connected with  preparing a yearbook for publi--  cation.  . . Finally, younger students read  yearbooks of former graduates.,  relatives, friends, and finally,  even their mother and father.  Present day junior classes are '  finding old Elphie yearbooks  quite fascinating right now.  .STo; Marilyn shows, there is a  reason for doing it. Then we  wondered why it is always such  a struggle. Why can we not produce a yearbook with the same  effort we put into other projects  ���say a social studies booklet or  a job study? Discussion brought  out several causes for our difficulties. To begin with the  grads are the students most interested in getting a yearbook.  This is their last year and  they are anxious to have a filial  souvenir���a book of-memories.  Therefore the grads form the  committee. Then they graduate  and leave the school with no ex-  GIBSONS HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  BRIDGE TOURNAMENT  Monday, Feb. 24 - 8 pxn.

So far under Regiorial District  auspices, as the result of public assent' by ballot, motorists  can now drive from Sechelt to  the bottom of the hill at- the  entrance to Davis Bay from Gibsons, under the glow of vapor  lamps. There is also a section  at Langdale towrisite which also voted for lights.  Bob Norminton, B.C. Hydro  manager for this area reports  42 lights have been installed in  the Davis Bay to Selma Park  area with others to be installed in present gaps in that area.

So' we  are always beginning with a  green crew. Generally speaking  it is' a small crew by the "time it  is a month old, and all the work  gets left to so few. The remaining seniors offer good advice but  take the attitude that the work  is in good hands���let the committee do it. The junior grades  Vcbuld care less.  The, greatest   battle   of   the  committee seems to be against  apathy on the part of the student body. Raising funds, too,  is always difficult. Even a very  modest book costs about $3 to $4  a copy to publish. In an effort  to keep costs down to what students will pay the committee  seeks sponsorship from the public���and again the work falls on  the willing few���just' adding to  their struggle. Y ;  The 1968-60 committee met to  discuss all these difficulties and  see if sonic way could no. be  found to overcome some of  them. They decided that perhaps the apathy1 of the student  body was in large part due to  lack of participation;. After a  discussion; with several publishers on costs per page, cost of  cover,-kinds of bindings, liners  and dividers, they set up this  hew plan for this gear's.book:  ���1. ARy division, club, team or  other group who would like to  be in the yearbook must prepare  the material and layout for its  own sectionTand must raise $20  a page for the printing. tSo far  the groups have solicited support from sponsors, put on mix  ers, bake sales and entertainments, for over half of the $1200  needed.  2. The senior clerical classes  . will do' the typing for each group  to fit the spaces required ��� using the special paper provided  and- carbon ribbon machines."  3. -��� The central committee will  advise and assist groups, will  keep the books, carry on the  correspondence, and keep��� the  school informed of progress.  4. Once total number of pages has been set, total number of  finished books required has been  determined, and total monies  have been raised for the actual  page printing, then we. can set  the final book price for this  year and hope to keep it under  $1 per.book. '? '  It is a new idea for yearbook  production land we are prepared,  for some less than perfect <work,  especially-from/grade 8 and,9  students who- have never done  anything like this before. But  we are finding interest throughout the school much higher than  it has ever been and page layouts so far much more interesting and attractive than we expected, and we know now that  next year we are going to have  a yearbook committee which  has had some experience.  It has always taken high pressure sales tactics to get even  200   students   to   purchase  the  yearbook.   This  year  we  have  orders from 450 students so far.  We feel that because groups are  preparing their own pages and  putting what they want in the  book it has  taken   on  a new  meaning to them and we believe  that participation by all is much*  more important than professionalism in the end product.  ���Fran Volen, Editor,  Marnie Jepson, Secretary,  Elphinstone Yearbook  Committee.
