This will cover from Halfmoon  Bay to Langdale, excluding Sechelt and Gibsons. The tender  was regarded as the only concise one submitted.  There were four tenders ranging from the $19,200 to $42,000  and the board settled on the  low tender. The term of contract will cover three years.  The company includes Ray  Chamberlin v of Gibsons arid T,  V. Gory of Sechelt and it is  understood to be considering a  collection once every two weeks.  Garbage dump sites are becomingV scarce, Director Cliff  Gilker informed the' board. The  reason: is that so many possiible  dump' - sites are also regions  where creeps abound and involve someone's water source.  However he said the garbage  committee would press for future sites.  Acting-trustee William Scoular  inquired as to whether anyone  was looking after the Halfmoon  Bay-area dump which he regarded as a. mess with garbage  spreading on the road.

Hospital Insurance Services, is estimated  at $52,000 broken down to include a regular doctor, office  space, nurse and maintenance  of building, and equipment.  Acting Director Norman Watson, replacing Director Mayor  Swain for this meeting wanted  to know what the area Medical  Clinic thought of this scheme.  Acting Director William Scoular  replacing Director J. H. Tyner  replied that they were not interested in what the Medical Clinic  thought. He said he was not criticizing the doctors but the service the populace was getting  was not enough.

Church Union  group meets  A second meeting was held  Sunday evening at the home of  Mr.-and Mrs. F. Ross Gibson in  Gibsons by members of the  guidance committee concerned  with union between the Anglican  and United churches. Further  means of acquainting congregations with union activities were  discussed. '  It was decided that there  would be, close co-operation between the local church officials.  The matter of communications  was explored and it was found  that there were, quite a few  things of which both sides could  agree.  The idea of joint church services and communion was left  over until the fall1 when both  church congregations would be  finished with vacation periods.  In the meantime efforts will be  made to obtain a copy of the  basic document, Principles of  Union between Anglican and  United Churches.

The retiring  queen's car is being loaned,  once again, by Mr. Bernel Gordon.  Soccer boys  to get awards  The Sunshine coast Juvenile  Soccer association will hold its  annual trophy presentation and  showing of a world cup soccer  film in Elphinstone High School  Gym starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 9.  This annual event draws together all the soccer teams, their  managers and coaches and representatives of the league together with the donors of numerous prizes.

Notification of this  has been given in two advertisements in the Coast News,  one last week and a repeat this  week.  The notice reads as follows:  "Pursuant to Section 14 of the  Pollution Control Act, 1967, the  Chairman of the .Pollution Control' Board will conduct an inquiry into pollution control matters relative to waters of the  Strait of Georgia in the Gibsons  Landing-Sechelt area which lie  within the boundaries of the  Sunshine coast Regional District  "The inquiry will be held in  the Canadian Legion Hall, Gibsons commencing at the hour of  10 a.m. May 14. -Evidence, including written submissions will  be received under oath following  opening remarks by the chairman."  As there has been considerable  controversy raised by the action  of Gibsons council in seeking a  method for disposal of its sewage it is expected this hearing  will have a considerable following.  Gibsons council is in the position of not being alble to decide^  on its own what method will ibe  used, this feeing under the control of the provincial Pollution  board, the chairman of which is  F. S. McKinnon. It is not expected the board will offer any  immediate solution to the problem but will after the hearing  examine the submissions, written or oral from' the, public:  Gower Point Property Owners  association are urging those coh 7  cerned with the preservation-of  sports fishing to attend the  hearing and make their voice;  heard. Their advertisement appears in the coming events section on the classified advertising  page.  Wins trip to Ottawa  ALLAN FEENEY  son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W.  Feeney, has been chosen to represent Gibsons school district  safety patrols at the national  school safety patrol jamboree in  Ottawa, May 16 and 17. The all-,  expense paid trip is sponsored  by the B.C. Automobile Association.  Allan will leave for Vancouver May 13 and will tour the  city the following day with the  other 11 students chosen from  various; parts of the province-  The7 contingent will fly to Ottawa on Thursday (May 15), accompanied   by   the   chaperone,  Constable Bob McDonald, one of  the two_ Vancouver policemen/in  charge of Vancouver^ school patrols.  -'>-> dil-^Friday (May 16) the patrols will tour the Parliament  buildings, Royal Canadian Mint,  National Museum, and grounds  of Rideau Hall,-home of the governor general. His Excellency  will greet the patrols personally.  On Saturday. (May 17) the patrols will march in a mammoth  parade with school patrol members from all parts of Canada,  past a reviewing stand where it  is expected Prime Minister Trudeau will take the salute. Following the parade, the patrols  will view a special performance  of the Clyde Beattie Circus. The  group will return to Vancouver  on May 18.  Fire truck costs $1  The Roberts Creek committee  working towards the organization of a fire department is receiving help from members of  the Regional District board, Cliff  Gilker, Frank' West and Harvey  Huibbs.  The Roberts Creek committee  has been advised to prepare  some estimate of what equipment is needed and what it  would cost.  An unused fire truck at Sechelt has been purchased for the  sum of $1 as a beginning in the  way of equipment. The Community association will be custodian of the truck until the fire  department is formed.  In the meantime the committee will seek information from  Sechelt and Gibsons departments on financing information.  The fire marshal's office in Vancouver will toe approached to  find out what equipment will be  required.  At the last meeting of the Regional District board procedure  was   outlined   so that   Roberts  MODERN GOSPEL MUSIC  The Jubilaires Gospel Orchestra, a group of 20 young men  directed by Doug Moody will  present a modern approach to  gospel music in a public concert at 8:30 Friday evening,  May 9 in Glad Tidings church,  Gower Point Road.  Creek would have its fire department. A specified area  would be formed then the ratepayers would petition for a fire-  fighting force which would result in a referendum being taken. Jack Aldred appeared on  behalf of the Roberts Creek com  mittee to press for required action.  P.O. slays open  Roberts Creek post office will  not be closed. This information  is contained in a letter from  Hon. Eric Kierans, postmaster  general. Mr. Kierans' letter was  a reply to one from Mr. Cope  sent along with a petition containing the signatures of 176  persons. The petition pointed  out that the post office at Roberts Creek was 50 years old and  was housed in Roberts Creek library, a building which was a  Centennial project partially financed by federal government  funds. The letter was sent  through Paul St. Pierre, MP for  this constituency.  Mr. Kierans' reply read:  "You will be pleased to know  that after careful consideration  of all the factors, with emphasis  on the usefulness of the post office and local conditions, we  have decided to retain this post  office."

Assessed value, says the Encyclopaedia Britannica, is the  value placed on real or personal property by governmental author-  its for purposes of taxation. It may or may not be an indication of  the market valuation of the property, but in any case,, provided  the assessments are equitable, it supplies a guide to the relative  values of similar kinds of property in the same assessment district.  That defines what assessed valuation is. Now take a look at  the provincial municipal affairs department annual report for 1967,  the latest complete figures available. It reads: On the present basis  of the rate of growth in B.C. it is anticipated that revenue from  real property and other sources of taxation for school and municipal/purposes in 1967 will reach $224,000,000. This, the report says,  would represent an increase of approximately 60 percent of- the  revenue of five years ago. Again from the department's report  we glean that in 1958 tax revenues grossed $92,429,190. Put this  against the 1967 figure of $224,000,000. This is staggering .'and there  must be an explanation. Actually wliat happened was that taxalble  properties in 1998 totalled $2,569,271,281 an din 1967 were $4,506,-  005,879.  The increase could be due to numerous factors, growth, new  construction, increased construction costs, increased interest  rates, a general inflation plus revised assessmets practically everywhere in the province since 1958. Other factors are an hourly wage  in .1958 of $1.66 and in 1967, $2.43. The wholesale price index was  22)7 in 1958 and 262 in 1967. A $10,000 home of 1958 (built in 1*967 would  have cost quite a bit more.  The desire for investors to ride the wave of inflation through  real estate naturally had an effect on land prices in British Columbia.  Affluence is a wonderful mood providing you can keep it as a  mood minus economics. Perhaps James Jeffrey Roche, American  author sums up the situation neatly in a literary gem which reads:  Be not concerned if thou findest thyself in possession of unexpected wealth; Allah will provide an unexpected use for it.  Ambulance in politics  Ladysmith's municipal council is just as much confused about  the government 1969 $1 per population free ambulance service as  is most other municipal councils. One thing appears certain in the  minds of most mayors and aldermen and that is, it is a way of Mr.  Bennett to saddle the municipalities with a service they do not  want and as usual is under-financing the scheme.  One of the difficulties connected with an amfbulance service is  also connected with fire departments. While they are supposed to  operate only within the limits of the municipality a call from outside their boundaries is rarely ignored. There is no logical reason  why ambulance service is not part of the BOHIS where all the  people of the province can be taxed in the same manner as they  are for hospital services. Makes sense, ddesn't it? But it would  please the present government to have the municipalities saddled  with this function. Perhaps this is a Social Credit wedge to drive  small municipalities into throwing in the.towel and 'becoming absorbed within a regional district? .  Coast News  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Sechelt named Maralyn MacKenzie as the year's May Queen  with Dale Billingsley and  Eleanor Nestman as princesses.  Councillor Sam Fladager reporting to council on the centennial project said that Victoria was anxious that local  committees get some action  under way.  Gibsons and District Board of  Trade members Digby Porter,  Dr. Ron Whiting, Morris Ny-  .gren and Fred Feeney poured  the cement boat ramp at the  water's edge on Prowse Road.  Square Dancers from Port  Mellon to Pender Harbor held  a Chinese smorgasbord in Roberts Creek Community hall  and seven sets started dancing as soon as the smorgasbord was cleared away.  10   YEARS   AGO  Gibsons and District Ratepayers association protested  charging owners of boats tying  up at the government wharf.  The association objected to .free  docking for fishermen while  others had to pay.  The Ratepayers also protested the condition of septic, tanks  in the Gibsons Bay area.  Improvements   costing   about  $10,000 were made to the YMCA  Elphinstone camp including a  225 ft. pier.  Sechelt was receiving compliments on the holding of its  tax rate down to 10 mills which  has been the rate for the last  four years.  A Davis Bay furnished two  bedroom waterfront home was  advertised for rent at $50 per  month.  20   YEARS  AGO  Mackenzie Liberals named  Batt Mclntyre as Coalition government candidate for the June  15 provincial election.  A dispute arose over allowing Sechelt Volunteer Firemen  free' use of Sechelt's Legion  hall for practice nights. The  Legion requested they pay $3  per night but the firemen said  they had no funds.  Selma Park Community Centre ds planning a Sports Day  July 1.

Thus Canada  benefitted from study of more  than a century and a half of  experience with many unemployment insurance systems.  At Basel, Switzerland, in 1789  trade unions and mutual benefit societies pioneered the concept. An English trade union  and a Belgian printer's union  in time followed it up, distribut-  dng benefits to unemployed  members.  But there was a weakness to  these early schemes. They did  not provide for the unorganized  and the unskilled elements of  the labor force, whose pay was  generally lowest and whose need  for insurance was greatest.  These groups continued to depend wholly on public or private  assistance distributed as a form  of charity.  .* ���   *     *  The first government initiatives were at municipal level;  Berne, Switzerland, organized  in 1893 the first public insurance system. Other European  cities, notably Basel, Zurich,  Leipzig and Bologna, followed.  All these schemes were voluntary, and an element of financial weakness was that mem-7  bership attracted particularly  those in the least regular forms  of employment.  A new development about the  turn of the century was for  municipalities to subsidize trade  union schemes on behalf of  union members in those cities.  Ghent in Belgium started a  system of direct subsidies to  unemployment citizens in union  schemes. Liege established a  related system in which the  municipal subsidy was handed  over to the trade union.  The first compulsory unemployment scheme was launched  by the Canton of St. Gall,  Switzerland, in, 1894. It was  wound up after facing for two  years strong opposition from  groups in regular employment.  France introduced in 1905  the first national voluntary  scheme. Various other European countries followed suit;  but the insurance was still generally limited to union members  and a high proportion of unemployment prone workers were  left without insurance protection.  _fc       jf:       *  The United Kingdom introduced the first compulsory national scheme in 1911, restricted at  first to six important industries  with some 2,500,000 workers. By  1920 it had been extended in  stages to cover practically the  entire British wage earning  population.  By 1935 eighteen European  countries operated voluntary or  compulsory plans. The number  insured in compulsory plans  was then estimated at 43,670,-  000, with 4,161,000 voluntary  contributors.  Wisconsin was in 1931 the first  legislature of the United States  to set up an unemployment insurance scheme, and in 1935 a  Federal Act stimulated state  participation in such programs.  By mid-1937 all American states  had established schemes, and  from 1949 state programs have  been subject to federal approval and control of funds.  In Canada unemployment insurance was considered by a  Royal Commission in 1919, and  the commission made a recommendation that a national system be established. An Employment and Social Insurance Act  was passed in 1935, but at was  not brought into effect as it was  ruled to have infringed the field  of the Provinces under the British North America Act.  Five years later ��� in June  1940 ��� Parliament, having secured the consent of the then  nine provinces of Canada passed the Unemployment Insurance Act, which came-into effect the. following year. Newfoundland came into the scheme  after union with Canada in 1949.  It's essentially a Canadian  system, geared to Canadian  character and conditions; even  though it has borrowed from  much that went before.  The;Unemployment Insurance  Act became law iri August 1940,  and the collection of the equal  contributions from employers  and employees began in July  1941. Subsequent amendments  have broadened coverage and  kept provisions in line with  changing conditions.  j{��' ���'��� ������������ #5* r      ���{��  To 1943 the maximum salary  at which salaried workers were  insurable was $2,000 a year, representing an average weekly  salary of $38.46. This ceiling  was raised to $2,400 a year  ($46.15 a week) in 1943, then  to $3,120 a year ($60 a week)  in 1948, to $4,800 a year ($92.31  a week) in 1950 and to $5,460  ($105 a week) from September  1959 to June 1968.  Since then the ceiling rate  has been $7,800 ($150 a week)  for salaried workers. All those  paid on hourly, daily and piece;  work rates are insurable regardless of earnings When a salaried  employee receives over $7,800  a year lie becomes non-insur-  able,���'���-. unless . he elects to remain an insured person and  exercises that option. In that  case he pays his own and what  would normally be the employer's/contribution, since the principle of equal employer^em-  ployee contributions no longer  applies.  *     *     *  Between 1941 and 1948 weekly contributions to Unemployment Insurance ranged from 9  cents to 36 cents, these contributions paid by both employees  and employers. Between 1948  arid 1950 contributions ranged  from 9 cents to 42 cents a week,  between 1950 and 1955 from 18  cents to 54 cents, between 1955  : and 1959 from 8 cents to 60  / cents. From September 1959 to  the introduction of the present  .scale, contributions ranged between a minimum of 10 cents  and a maximum of 94 cents a  week.. The weekly contributions  .. rangjefis now. 10 cents to .$1.40  a week. ���'-'���  The contributions of employees and employers, plus  one-fifth of this .amount added  by the Government, finance the  fund.

B may offer to buy C's  car for $1,000. D may offer to  sell E a house for $20,000. The  question is, how long are these  offers good for? When an offer expires, this is known as  a lapse.  Firstly, a lapse occurs when  the time limit contained as part  of the offer expires. For example, if an offer to say, sell  arid deliver some certain goods  for a certain price reads: This  offer to remain open to one  month from the above date at  12 o'clock noon. The offer lapses  after that date and time, and  if the offeree accepts it after  that, the offeror" does not have  to  comply.  Secondly a lapse occurs upon  the death of either the offeror  or offeree.  Finally, if there is no definite  period for the offer to remain  open, it lapses after a reasonable time. Let us assume an  offer reading as follows: I offer to build a garage, the specifications to be according to the  attached sheets, the garage to  be completed August next, price  $2,000. What is a reasonable  time?  A reasonable time is what  would be considered reasonable  by a reasonable prudent person engaged in the business in  question. Every case would be  decided on its own merits, according to the .practice of the  trade and all the surrounding  circumstances.  >#-.���;. ::x^"  Freezer Bread  2c OFF  PER  LOAF  20 loaves or more  Get together with a friend  If you haven't storage room  in your freezer for this 20-  loaf offer ��� go in with a  friend and each take 10  loaves at a saving of 2 cents  per loaf.

He would take the  position that the offer had  lapsed by passage of time, and  the fight would be on, with the  matter having to be decided by  the courts if the parties could  not settle their differences. All  this can be avoided by having  a properly worded contract in  the first place, that is, one that  contains a definite time in  which the offer may be accepted  UIC problems  Q. I have hired carpenters  to build a house for me. Do I  pay Unemployment Insurance  for them?  A. If the house is for use as  your private residence,, the  work would not be^ considered  to be in connection with your  trade or business. As it would  be of a non-continiiding, or  casual nature, Unemployment.  Insurance would not be payable.  In the event the house is no.  to be used as your own home  and if you are building it for  revenue purposes, you should  provide full details to your  nearest Unemployment Insurance Office and request a ruling.  Q. My old boss gave me my  Unemployment Insurance book  when I lost my job, but there  are no stamps in it for the last,  two weeks I worked. Can you  make him pay up?  A. It may be that the stamps  were omitted by an oversight.  Point this but to him. If they  are not forthcoming, contact  your area UIC office. They  will take a hand to ensure that  all the stamps due are credited  to you. ��� '   N  TV FOOTBALL PLANS^  The Canadian Broadcasting  Corporation has announced  plans to telecast Canadian  Football League games live on  20 different dates during the  1969 season including the Grey  Cup game.

Their musical contribution of sprightly  tunes at intermission would  have done credit to any profes-  sional theatre pit orchestra.  Mr. W. S. Potter, princip.il,  greeted the somewhat sparse  turnout of parents and friends.  In the opener, It's Cold in Them  Thar Hills, a hilarious hillbilly  farce, complete with shotgun  wedding, and under direction of  Mrs.   R.   Postlethwaite,   grade  ians in three plays       tellers fo editor  eight students romped through  their parts, making' the most,of  each comedy situation. Outstanding in the cast were John  Hummel, Christel 'Gehring,  Jeannie Wallace, Suzanne Jorgenson and Ken Bourne with  supporting members, Karen  Brignell, Joan Blomgren, Carol  Blomgren, Cherry . Guelph, Arthur Hoefsloot, Kathy Potter  and Bill Simpkin.  High Window, a chilling murder drama, directed by Mr.  George Coweil gave members  of the Drama Club ample opportunity to demonstrate their ability to create and sustain the  tense and foreboding atmosphere throughout the piece. Special credit goes to Denise Littlejohn as the sinister wheelchair  patient in a most exacting role.  You Better Believe It!

The concluding play, a one  act fantasy by grades nine and  ten students, She was a Lazy  Witch, was a sheer delight and  reflects the excellent direction  of Mrs. Postlethwaite in bringing out. the well revealed talents  of each cast member. Shannon Arthur,, Marilyn Schwabe  and Dayle Billingsley handled  their role as the three witches  with pixillated ease that entranced the audience.  Playing right up in full support, Donna McCourt, Greg  Hayes and Steven Lee rounded  out the well balanced cast. The  effective, settings and storm effects in the prologue provided  just the proper mood for the  wild and rocky heath, a credit  to the technical staff.  Each of the casts of the three  productions took a well merited curtain call at the conclusion of Elphinstone's Drama  Night, and with the school's  concert orchestra, received repeated rounds of applause, testifying to the success and appreciation of their efforts in  providing an evening of enjoyable, well directed and well  staged entertainment.

Mr. Saumur said we advocate that law and order be  motivated out of love of what  is right.

School Trustees association to  the news report on the proposed solution to the school financing   crisis   in   Kitimat.  It seems incredible that department of education officials  who are desperately trying to  operate a formula, introduced  with the stated purpose of encouraging economy in school  district operation, should suggest a solution which will involve the boards in substantial  interest costs of borrowing for  current  operating,  he   said.  Recently it was announced  that school districts which had  operating funds refused by the  defeat of referenda would be  allowed to borrow from the  banks about one third of the  funds needed to operate the  district for the balance of 1969.  These funds would be deficit  expenditures for this year and  would be repaid in 1970 with  funds raised by additions to  1970 taxes. For the period that  these funds are needed, they  will be paying a substantial  rate of interest to the bank.  In proposing these extra  funds, the minister of education's financial and accounting  advisors have recognized that  special measures are necessary  in the seven districts with referendum defeats, and the minister should follow the pay as  you go dictum of the minister  of finance and allow the boards  to raise these funds from 1969  taxes.

The Gibsons  Rod and Gun Club will not be  responsible for any bond holdings and claims after the above  advertised date.  Reply in writing to;  Gibsons Rod and Gun Club,  Box 156,  Gibsons  The minister's advisors are  making proposals which will result an no increase in taxes  this year and a substantial increase next year, he said. It  is also strange that the boards  are being advised to retain services which are visiLble and  popular, like music programs  and town bus routes, while they  are being advised to cut other  services that the public cannot see, like maintenance and  janitorial services!  He believed the minister of  education should reject these  recommendations   and  publiciy  announce that the referendum  aspect of the formula is its  main flaw and should be removed. He could then allow the  boards concerned to meet their  education requirements., as confirmed by the minister's educational advisors through a tax  levy in the current year.

The fund's balances reached  a peak of 921 millions in 1957,  after which unemployment ���  and consequently the amount  paid out in benefits ��� increased steeply.  In 1956-57 the fund paid out  $369 millions to 925,000 claimants:   in   1960-61   $616   millions  were paid out to 1,136,000 claimants, the assets of the fund became exhausted  and the Gov-;  ernment made special advances 7  of funds to the Unemployment ,  Insurance. Commission to meet  the situation.'  From 1963 the fund reflected  a new buoyancy. In that year  the level of contributions rose  again above that of benefit payments. The proportionately  small number of claims since  then has been a favorable factor.  So in 1965 the fund had a balance of $40 millions to carry  forward. Reserves stood at $141  millions in 1966, and in March  1967 they stood at $258 millions.  Coast News, May 7, 1969.

The Children .to Children-  Cultural Exchange is bringing  this choir to Canada for seven  concerts in British Columbia,  between July 1 and 16 this summer.  Bill Wright, chairman of the  Kiwanis special committee composed of George Cooper and  John Harvey, are working hard  to make this event one to be  remembered.

By A. R. BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute,   ,,  Ottawa  If you have moved into a new  home and have overcome the  problem of mud or sand by having .a lawn started, your  thoughts will, by now, have  turned to constructing a boundary fence or planting a hedge.  Both operations require considerable thought (before a decision can be reached as the  kind of variety of materials to  use.  Hedges are classified first into main categories ���- evergreen  and deciduous. Evergreen  hedges keep their leaves all  winter and thus provide a more  permanent screen, whereas the  deciduous ones will lose their  leaves and look somewhat bare  in winter, although extra twiggy kinds still give sufficient  screening and those with ornamental bark will show up better.  Nearly all the evergreen  hedges we grow are of the  needle-leaved . cone - bearing  types. Most common of these in  eastern Canada is the white-  cedar, or arborvitae. This is  perhaps the most popular hedge  since it is easily and cheaply  obtained and requires no special care in planting.  If you live where this plant  is native and desire it for a  hedge, you should go out to  nearby rural areas and search  for farms where the cedar  grows wild. If you are successful, the farmer will either supply them ready dug or let you  dig them for a price.  In early spring and in September and October these plants  may also be found available in  the local farmer's market. In  very mild areas the more refined Oriental cedar may be  , used.  Other hardy but more expensive evergreen hedges are the  Japanese    yew    that makes a  fine dense hedge, English yew  '���for the Pacific Coast,  a most  graceful   although   a  most  expensive    hedge,    the Canadian  hemlock and  the  low growing  Korean box a true broadleayed  f-evergreen that grows slowly"! to  ,two and one-half feet high but  ��� may be clipped down to seven  or eight inches  and the ever-  ; green     honeysuckle,     English  < laurel  for B.C.   coastal   areas.  Deciduous     trees     and shrubs  1 used for hedges are best classified as follows:  Dense. With branch structures  that are so compact they pro-  > vide a real barrier; some of  ; these are low-growing and require very little care. Good examples are the lodense privet,  Clavey's dwarf honeysuckle,  Korean box and the Amur privet, a hedge that grows to four  feet and can be maintained at  this height with an annual clipping. For the milder parts of  B.C. use the Vicary golden  privet and the Californian privet  Low or high. Hedges can be  planted that are very low or  as high as you wish. Many that  will normally grow from 10 to  15 feet can be kept low by clipping. Such is the Siberian elm,  commonly called the Chinese  elm but this fast growing plant  Therms just no  stopping >ypt>.  ���r<      ���).���     '���'���'  (if you don't wear  seat belts)  CANADIAN HIGHWAY SAFETY COUNCIL  Sponsored by  Bill Wright  Sunnycrest Motors  and  Chas.   Mandelkau  Gibsons Shell Service  needs clipping every two weeks  to keep it trim and neat, and  can cause problems by its  voracious roots.  Wide .: or narrow. Of ten the  space available will determine  the width. In most of Canada  hedges should be trimmed so  that the top is narrower than  the bottom, otherwise the  weight of the snow in winter  will break down parts of the  hedge.     There     are very (few  hedges that are naturally nar-.  row to within less than two  feet but Caragana may be clipped to this width without showing bare patches.  Thorny stems or leaves. These  hedges will keep out7 stray animals if trimmed regularly to  induce basal growth. Hedges  such as cherry prinsepia and  the salttree are fine for this  purpose. The Japanese Brier if  Flowering or non-flowering  Some hedges are showy in flower. You will need to delay pruning of these until after flowering and then do not brush-cut  but trim each branch independently so as to get a good arching effect. Spireas, mock-oranges  and honeysuckle are the best  informal types. The Nanking  cherry and the shrubby potentil-  la may be clipped formally and  will still produce flowers in  abundance.  Colorful fruits. Hedges that  produce colorful fruit are not  only ornamental but will be  quite attractive to birds. Such  hedges as cotoneasters, hawthorns and high bush-cranberry  are  excellent for this purpose.  For windbreaks. Wide, tall  hedges can reduce winds in  particular windy places or  serve as screens against unsightly views; or help ensure  privacy for the family. Best of  Coast News, May 7, 1969.  these are the Hungarian lilac  which will produce a good show  of bloom and grow to fifteen  feet high, the laurel willow, the  wayfaring tree and the nanny-  berry.  Study the reason for your  hedge and then watch for plants  that will suit your purpose. Consult your neighbor also, for  this will not only lead to good  public relations but may cut  your cost in half.  At MacMillan Bloedel, we try to give  trees the best possible start in life-  arid the most careful upbringing. At  the same time, we're constantly striving for trees that will grow faster and  produce better quality wood.  From carefully selected parent  trees we gather thousands of cones  from which seed is obtained to raise  sturdy two-year seedlings. These are  planted by hand in logged areas where  natural re-seeding may take too long  or may not be satisfactory. Trees  planted this way, spaced and protected for maximum growth, will reach  maturity in fewer years.  Through intensive forest management we are increasing the yield of  wood per acre up to 40% more than  untended forests usually produce.  That means more wood products  for world markets and more jobs for  British Columbians.
