 Pro^inaial^Ldbrary,  SERVING   THE  GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gibsons,   B.C.  Phone 886-2622  , Volume  22   .  10c.per copy  Number 23, June 11, 1969  greets visitors  Su^sliineCdastmiss makes friends  By CLAUDIA JEAN HEADLEY  I  have   just   returned   from'  Czechoslovakia and this is iny  The Czechs are fascinating  people. The majority.' live in  brick apartments, some of which  are scarred by bullet holes;  Very few have cars, so people  either catch a tram or walk,  perhaps a mile or more to Work.'  The steets are hushed; it is  so quiet you-can; hear the whirr  of pigeon's wings as they soar  upwards from the square/The  tension is high and oppressive.  But in spite of this tension, the  Czechs greeted vine warmly and  sincerely. 7       ^  I had the privilege of visiting  the Queen Elizabeth Wine Cellar under the old monastery in  Brno. It has been converted into  a restaurant with thick oaken  tables and chairs upholstered in  cowhide. There in the; flickerinig  cahdjLeligM folk-musicians played patriotic songs and the^cavern rang with -angling and shouting and thumping on the tables,  "Long live Prague, may she  stand forever."  While in Brno, I also had .the  pleasure of hearing the Brno  Children's Choir. 1 have heard  many records of this choir, but  listening to them in person was  really thrilling. Dr. Lysek, the  director, can make them sound  like the whole Czech nation- one  moment and chimes at .vespers  the next.  I was warmly received by the  choir and all the Czechs I met.  I hope that, someday I may vis  it: Czechoslovakia again and be  with her wonderful people.  Wherever my family and I  went, we were showered with  flowers. The day of our arrival  in Brno we were met by the  president and two other members of the choir who told us Tin  English that they hoped we  .would enjoy our visit to Brno.  Then they presented us each  with a large bouquet of fragrant  carnations.'  The history of Chechoslovakia  has been in part a sad one, The  country has been invaded, plun-  * dered and pillaged over and  over again. There have been  only I�� years of freedom; All  the others have been fiUed:;with  terror,, suffering and trouble.  There is a castle in /Brno  whose walls echo this hisfcory.  Spiellberk Castle has been the  site of ruthless torture. People  of rmany nations have been ijm-  pnisoned there. There is 7a/staircase that leads from the mai-l  courtyard to the dungeons  through the moat. There ihythe  moat yoii can picture prisoners  looking up at the last', rays of  the sun they will ever see before being- herded by the hundreds into the endless, dank tunnels. You can feel the hopelessness these people must have felt.  Somewhere in these endless  corridors of time you can almost  hear the sob of a dying man.  You carefully retrace your steps  and as the fresh air and warm  sunlight hit you,' you realize that  it is good to be alive.  In spite of-all that" the Czechs  have endured, they still retain  their sense of humor. They  laugh and joke and sing as if  iiothang had ever been destroyed  and no one had ever suffered.  Although! these people have had  bitter experiences I don't believe anything of true value has'  been lost..The Czechs have hope  and courage and as long as that  hope and courage remains nothing will: ever really suppress  them. '       .  They are a peace-loving peof  pie. As long as they hold on to  a hope for peace, even if there  is chaos around them, they will  remain tranquil.  The Brno Children's Choir is  coming to British Columbia in  July, to Vancouver, Penticton^  Sunshine Coast and Victoria. I  very sincerely hope that these  children are as well received  and as warmly welcomed as I  was on my visit to Czechoslovakia.

ONE OF THE LARGER MOVING jobs done in Gibsons recently  was accomplished with very little fuss last Friday morning when  this house was moved from its position immediately adjacent to  Ken's Foodland on Gower Point Road, to a lot on Sargent Road.  What seemed to be the toughest part of the move is shown at top,  when the house was moved from its position well above street level  down onto Gower Point road. They proceeded along Gower Point  road and Fletcher road, where they are shown in the second picture receiving a little help from/the "B.C. Telephones crew in getting under some wires. Getting up School road was not too difficult  with the help of a second truck, and the house was backed in along  Sargent road and onto its lot, where it is seen blocked up, ready  for a foundation, to be put under it. The whole move was done by  a four man crew from Apex Building Movers in Burnaby. They  started preparing the building Thursday afternoon, started' the  move about five a.m. Friday, and by eight ajm. had it parked in  the middle of Sargent road, where it provided a rather startling  sight for those proceeding down School road to work.  August  It's a good idea, let's give pur  , support, Acting Mayor Wally  Peterson said Tuesday when  council favored turning Dougal  Park over to Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce  August 2)1 to 24 for a three day  celebration. Now, that/the July  7 1 celebration and the: Fall Fair  are. defunct the aldermeii liked  the idea of something new "crojp^  ping up. Details for. the/ threes  day affair are being worked but  by 7 a committee of various organizations.  Among other iteaws discussed  were consideration of budgetting  for the' correction of Gower  Point road at the village entrance near Gospel Rock, which  could be a costly job;' refusal of  an application for connecting  with Pratt Road waterline  sought by H. James BarfcTey.  Council contended the water line  was already overloaded.  - Seaside Plaza owners were informed they woiild have to com- ;���  ply with NHA specifications and  pollution control'board specifica  tions before council could consider granting a building permit  for further work on the premises  One tender was submitted for  painting the floor of' the Health  Centre hall, by Les. O.- Hunter  for $185. Council thought the  ' price was reasonable and ac-  cepted,his offer. . ^JrM-_^,.  '���"^' MayoT'_5*-%^Feeney~ whS" was  in Prince George, where he fwill,  , be taking oyer a supervisory/  post with B.C. Telephones, was  replaced by Acting Mayor "Wally Peterson/ Aid. , Ken Cibsfoy  arranged' that access to beaches  off Franklin road be looked into, steps repaired and blackberry growth removed. Council will  look over the whole picture first.  3 meetings  tor Berger  The Sunshine Coast NDP club  at its June 5 meeting arranged  for meetings to be addressed  by Tom Berger, leader of the  party.

A modest approach  The antMnflation budget"of Hon. E. J. Benson, federal minister  of finance, might be termed for political reasons- anti-in-Mianary >  but for practical reasons its aims at curbing inflation are none too  dear. >./  It may take a little time for signs of a definite anlti-inflationary  mood to become evident. Canada is not in a position ,to take its  own economy, and regardless of what other nations do, develop a  tight anti-inflationary policy. However Ottawa is endeavoring to,  show that it is testing the anti-inflationary.waters with- one toe at  least to see if the time is ripe for more stringent measures.  In the meantime the persistent drive for more and.more of less  and less dollar value will persist until someone discovers that this  is a way'to obtain diminishing returns_  In the meantime keep your eyes on the living cos!t index and  other indices that show what is happening and hope for the best.  Perhaps a five percent rise in costs for 1969 might not be out of  line when Ithe end of the year rolls around.:  Hope for our weatherman!  The plight of, Mr. Kennett, Gibsons weatherman, is one worthy  of consideration. He had every desire to be able to report that  May's /rainfall would be a record low (but a few clouds came along  and completely spoiled his hopes.However another monlth is working its/way towards its last day and perhaps he may ibe able to  find something that .will make this part of the Sunshine Coast beam  with joy.: ���  .-7 ;.-���������  He .'should remember that if there is no possibility of sledding  in July we will have had a pretty fair summer. He should also re--  call that if .the/ weather ^didn't change once in a /while that anost_7  people would be-alt a loss?in /startup a co^eisation./Fra^ JEful*-^  bard, an American columnist is believed to have originated that  remark many years ago. It still holds true. Most people when they  meet usually open with comment of the weafther.  Mr. Kennett can use the old bromide that if you don't see the  mountains,it is raining and,if you see them it's going to rain. So  Mr. Kennett if there is any solace for you in these remarks, let us  all hope you will eventually achieve success and point to a record  and let us hope it will; be sunshine, not rain.  Wo offer our help  Gibsons appears to have no July 1 Celebration this year, and  along with the demise of the Sunshine Coast Fall Fair we are. in for  a quiet year.  Perhaps there might be a band of citizens who do not see things  that way and feel that at least July 1 should not go by withpuf  something occurring, a baseball tourney 'or even a tiddley-wihk  contest. If there, are any so minded the Coast News will be behind  them 100 percent ��� but please start now to get something organized.  There is a three day event coming.up leading into the Firemen's sports events some time in late August/In the meantime  someone should be looking ahead into 1970. Maybe we might have  something in the 1971 Centennial year, B.C.'s 100th birthday.

(By ERIC THOMSON)  In the Vancouver Province  there appeared the story of  Miss Edna Johnson of that city  as winner at the Vancouver  Home Show of the $25,000 prize  package comprising a home-ih-  the-round, a lot near Okanagan  Lake for it, and a hew ear to  get there.  Miss Johnson's reception of  this good fortune. was that she  already had a nice summer  cottage at Hopkins Landing, to  which she would apply her winnings, and having that place,  who would want to go to the  far-off Okanagan, a sentiment  with which the residents of Hopkins Landing whole-heartedly  agreed.  # *��� ,���*  A few days ago the writer  was . on his way through Hopkins on the high road, and noticed an extensive clearing on  the lower side of the rpadu a  pile of stumps on fire, andy/a  man working with a bull-dozer.  Curiosity took him down nad  he found a friend,,Ray Johnson, of Gibsons, clearing a  home-site just above Miss Johnson's cottage. Mr. Johnson remarked that there were more  Johnsons than people oh this  part of the Coast, which is /a  fact.  On the West Howe Sound s.de/��~  starting with Oscar Johnson in  Gibsons there are at least eight  of that ilk before the line ends  with Oscar Johnson at Port  Mellon. These have received  distinguishing nick-names in  course of time, all appropriate  but some slightly libellous, and  our lucky lady is known as  Shaughnessy Johnson as she is  employed there, and this suits  her down to the ground.  . ���"���������-������ . :>-  ��� On the other shore of the Sunshine Coast, starting with the  ex-merchaht of Gower Point,  there are scattered Johnsons  ail the way to Sechelt, where  there is a band of them of various ethnic origins,/including the  Scandinavi_-h,y and;^tihat brings .  to?mind tne 'la.e Andy. My first"  contact with him was about 20  years ago, when he was selling  off the lumber in Pop Jackson's mill yard at Wilson Creek.  He later became our magistrate, and, . somehow, I .was  only twice .in,, bis assize court,  once as counsel for the defendant, and once as character witness. The first occasion had to  do with the alleged beating-up  of some teenage kid by an irate  boat-owner, the boy's parents  being the complainants. There  was nothing to see in the way  of injuries, and the boy folded  up in the witness box, so Andy  said that the claim was werry,  werry wague and dismissed it.  leaving these words of wisdom  applicable to more recent allegations  of local brutality.  * *     *  The other occasion had to do  with a Conspiracy case,, some  years ago.. Three of our local  lads, in financial straits on the  approach of Christmas, got together on a unique money-raising scheme. This was to hold  up a recluse in a cabin on the  way to Fort Mellon, and then  to tackle the other Thompson,  owner of the pensioners' shack  where Langdale is now, but  then named Shaughnessy, then  to top off with me, but if the  Christmas stocking was still not  full, they had in mind to abduct a personable Gibsons matron and hold her to ransom on  one of the islands beyond Keats.  One of the participants 'got  cold feet, and spilled the beans  to the RCMP, who bugged the  final meeting of the trio, and  took them into custody as they  emerged    from    the    meeting-  Blake C. Alderson, D.C.  CHIROPRACTOR  Post Office Building, Sechelt  TUES., WED., THURS., FRI.  10:30 ��� 5:30  SATURDAY 9:30 - 1:00  Phone  Office 885-2333���Res. 886-2321  place. It was thought that' this  cause celebre required something more than the RCMP office," then in the basement of  the corporal's home, arid Andy  hired St. Bartholomew's Church  Hall. The only member of the  public to attend was Dick McKibbin. The two remaining defendants pleaded guilty through  counsel, and as both had been  in durance vile for several  weeks for lack of bail, the  Court regarded the scheme as  fantastic and, I think, sentenced them to the time that they  had been in custody.  *      *      -ft  My friend and I were called  for character evidence. The tape  of this conspiracy used to be  a feature of the Gibsons Firemen's Christmas party, and report had it that it had Dickens'  Christmas Story backed off the  /map. A few-days after this trial  the house of one of the defendants burned to the ground in  the absence of the owner, and  I happened to mention this the  next day to Dick McKibbin, who  happened to have the fire insurance. .v  After the trial also, I informed the lady in the case of what  had been proposed for her, and  at first she thought that it would  have been exciting to be marooned on a desert island, but  on being told that she might  have had the other Thompson  and myself there too, she  thoughtfully remarked that she  might have faced a fate worse  than death, f passed the burned-  out house some months later,  and found a climbing Van Fleet  rose growing at the gate," and  helped myself to a slip from it  as a belated witness' fee, and  this rose now covers our boat-  house.  ���'���"���"'' *     *     *  Andy became a gifted public  speaker and was equally at  home^ at the Pender Harbor  fishermen's gargantuan smorgasbord, and at Port Mellon  Burns'-.supper^in, the jdays be-  ��� fore v..' tomato v? catsup "-came -'���in  with the haggis. On one occasion he gave my wife and,  myself transportation to and  from the supper. Among the  entertainers were . two lissom  Highland dancing girls, one with  the RCAF kilt, and the other  in  then new Nova  Scotia  kilt.  Andy left early to remove  the shadow of his official presence from the revellers, and'  his wife and mine were in the  back seat of his car and were  chatting over who wore what,  and got round to the kilts, and  approved of both of them. Andy  broke in with  "And the John  stons have a nice bright tartan  too." This brought a derisive  hoot from me, as while my  Norse background is only eight  miles from Scotland proper, in  Orkney, Andy's was over 400  miles "in TNorraway o'er the  faem. At that time I used to  provide a report on the event  for the Coast News arid append  to it something which rhymed  On this .occasion the offering  'was: ''  s7  The Johnstons were a border clan, and in the days larig syne,  They used to reive the English Sheep and lift the -English; kine,  And, whiles, the English hangit them, and now it's plain to see  That the numbers of Clan Johnston are.no' what they used to be.  But now they've have a fine recruit, a laddie bold and;braw, /  On the wrang side of the ocean, but the right side of the law,  Oor Andy's thinking of a kilt, and we must now confess  Where that is going to lead him is onybody's guess.  So, maybe at Port Mellon, on next year's Burns' day,  He'll take that kilted lass in blue, I'll take the one in grey,  And set to partners in a reel as to the manner born,  If we can have the piper plan "The hare is in the corn."  But mony other ploys there are for lads in Philabegs,  BUt they require a steady heid and a pair of steady legs,   7  Or, maybe, when the rising sun on Sechelt spreads its flame:,  Its beams will light a Viking, ��� wauchlin' hame.

It turned out that there was  solid foundation for Andy's assertion, y ;  Some time later, my wife and  I were-iii1 Scotland. One day  we took a bus trip^to Moffatt,  a border town iri South' West  Scotland/ Ori the road back to  Edinburgh we climbed high up  on the hills and at one place  we looked'down into a vast natural' ainphithedtre. The bus  stopped,- arid the driver said:  "This is the Devil's Beef Tub,  and it was down in there that  the Johnsons kept the cattle  that they stole from the English until they were ready to  eat them."  Some time later we were at  Inverness at the other end of  Scotland, capital of the Highlands, and out for an evening  stroll, we noticed a handsome  shop full of tourist bait. One  of the centre windows had rows  of tartan tie and scarf ensembles, plastic-fronted to show  the contents, arid with an easily  read account of the clan name  and history. Right in the middle was this one: "The Johnsons were a border clan, but  they had a strong northern  branch:" ~  Next morning I    was    there  when the  store  opened.  There  was rio commissionaire, but it  was .that type of a  shop. ;Instead; there was  a large and  beautiful  sable collie,  who escorted . me  in   and  up   to  the  proper counter,.and I addressed  myself to  the   pleasant   young  sales lady, who took riiy breath  away by asking from what part  of Canada I came.

Survivors- are -his many, many  friends along the Sunshine  Coast. 7,  Back in the days of the First  War he served in the Czar's  navy in the Baltic area alter  a term as a sailing fleet officer.  In early 1920 he moved to Canada and after a short stay in  eastern Canada moved to the  west coast. He worked on various coastal vessels out of Vancouver and later turned to fishing from which he retired to  take  up  painting and  carving.  Four years ago at the age of  *76 Alex Znotin finally sold his  boat and retired .from the sea  and fishing which had been his  life for 39 years along the B.C.  coast.  He had always been able to  draw and had filled spare moments at sea and during wintry  months on shore by sketching  and carving. Later he experimented with oils.  Naturally he paints what he  knows and loves best, ships 'and  the sea in all its moods and a  lifetime experience of observation and understanding of the  ocean is reflected in his large  canvasses.

Letters to editor  Editor: Through the medium  of your newspaper I would like  to apoligize to Mr. Hough for  having been the one who nominated him to stand as a candidate for a School Board Trustee, "v ��� ���   '���'���������'   v  It would appear that his honest endeavors on our behalf  were a waste of time. Obviously  the taxpayers of this district  are not as yet sufficiently interested in where their tax dollars are going to demand an  explanation of the allegations  he has made.  I note with interest that Mr.  Hough has accused our recently employed secretary-treasurer  of writing an arrogant and patronizing letter to him. If this  is the case, why did his fellow board members not demand  an apology? Also, he states that  as chairman of the finance committee he found that most of  his recommendations were voted down by a narrow majority.  Why then, was he made chairman of this committee? Was  it just a token gesture?  If, as intimated by Mr. Hough,  the secretary-treasurer has the  time to take over the duties of  the maintenance supervisor  then he must be either neglecting his own duties or his office  may be overstaffed. Which is  it?  The majority of taxpayers are  aware that a trustee job is a  thankless one but all trustees  should remember that the people who elect and support them  expect them ��to lead, not be  led. ��� Bernice Chamberlin.  rinuni si;i;��iii:\  ANGLICAN  St. Bartholomew's, Gibsons  8 a.m., 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays  Holy Communion  11 a.m., Sunday School  11:15 a.m., 1st and 3rd Sundays  Holy Communion  2nd and 5th Sundays, Mattins  4th Sunday^ family.

Should he plead guilty?  What is the relationship ber  tween the criminal charge and  any civil law suit arising out  of the accident?  In any criminal matter there  is rarely , any advantage in  pleading guilty. Sometimes in  a minor traffic charge the accused wants to plead guilty  for convenience or to get' it  over with, and so avoid t|he  time consumed in a trial. They  do themselves a disservice, but  no serious legal consequences  can result; unless the charge  arises out of a motor vehicle  accident.  In this case they definitely  should not plead guilty. To do  so, may seriously affect them  adversely in any civil claim  arising out of the collision.  Moreover, if they carry motor  vehicle insurance they must  not plead guilty. This is provided for in the insurance  policy. They must not do any-  /tii^.-^w^ the  : rigKr the insurance ^company  has'tofslue,^defend or counterclaim * an their name.  : A plea of guilty' in a criminal  trial; may be used against a  person at a. later civil] trial  arising out of the same accident;, A finding of guilt in a  criminal trial may 'not:'be used  against' a person at such a later  civil trial.  The two trials are -quite sepa- "  rate'; and. distinct. They take  place in different courts, according |o different laws, by a  different procedure ahd according to quite different standards  of proof.    :  The standard of proof in a  criminal, case is 7 guilt beyond  all reasonable doubt. The standard :'of proof in a civil case is  according- to the balance pf  probabilities or by preponderance of evidence. Thus it is  quite common for a person to  be found liable in a civil action but acquitted in a criminal  action ��� both actions having  arisen out of the same incident.  Although it would be more  unusual! the reverse could also  be ��� true.

PIERRE, MP  COAST-CHILCOTIN  There has been altogether too  much politics discussed "in this  column lately. There are more  important matters.  Item 1: Let us consider the  young man who. applied for a  job in the civil service. The interviewer asked him what he  did with his spare time. "My  avocation," said the young man,  "Is mountain climbing:"  The interviewer spoke to him  gently but firmly. ; "Young  man," he said, "Only deputy  minister have avocations. Assistant Deputy Ministers have  hobbies. What you are doing is  fooling around."  Item 2: Off Lunehberg, Nova  Scotia, there was a schooner  which slipped her cable while  the crew were asleep and drifted out into the fog.  In the morning, the son of  the skipper was the first ori  deck. He looked around and  then shouted down the hatch  "Pa, Pa, We ain't here. We  ain't- here!"  The old Lunenberg skipper  climbed to the deck. :  "Ain't Here?"7 he said, "Why  son, we ain*t within five miles  of here. Throw out the han-  chor."  "It ain't got no rope on it,"  said the son.  "Throw it out anyway," said  the Skipper, "It'll help some."  Item 3: I am indebted to one  Benjamin Disraeli for this  quote: Youth is blunder. Manhood is struggle. Old age is: regret:'    ��� ��� ���'-'���'���        ���'"'-  Item 4: A bitter and sad book,  but one to be highly recom- ���  mended, is The Long Death, by  Robert Andrist ���- the story of  the extinguishment of the Plains  Indian societies of the United  States.  Between 1830 and 1890, by a  process which came perilously  close to genocide, the American  army and the American settlers  had so acted that one is drawn  to the quote about Chief Joseph  of the Nez Perce: "He could  not accuse the American government of a. single act of good  faith."  However, horrifying as Mr.  Aridrist's story may be, it pales  beside the report of this week's  Globe Magazine which reports  the same policies being carried  out today in several South  American nations^���* >(  Item 5: Epitaphs on a gravestone of an English country  churchyard:....  Here'y lies Marvin Enginbrodde  Have mercy, on  my soul,   Oh  Cfod,  As L would dp, if I were You  And You were Marvin Enginbrodde.  IIIC problems  Q. I recently filed a claim for  unemployment insurance and  drew benefits, for only a few  weeks when I was offered a  job which I refused I was then  advised that I was disqualified  for six weeks. I understood that  a person ��� could refuse three  jobs before benefits were discontinued? Why ^aresonie claimants treated differently from  others? .; .  , A. There is no rule that an  insured person may refuse three  jobs. An insured person cannot  refuse an opportunity of suitable employment and be entitled  to benefit. The provisions of the  Unemployment Insurance. Act  apply equally to 7 all.  Q. I received a letter stating  that the local Unemployment  Insurance Commission office  want my gross earnings for the  last week I worked.

Chinooks to 30 lbs. were  in fairly good abundance. Trollers seemed to be keeping pace  with   the   moochers   suggesting  ���''"that the fish aren't too deep.  One other area with a few fish  is the Horseshoe Bay vicinity.  Boats in these waters claimed  modest success on chinooks to  22 lbs.  - .Practically no salmon were  taken in upper Howe Sound, in  English Bay, along Ambleside  Beach west to Point Atkinson or  in the Point Grey to North Arm  Jetty area. Ambleside waters  had a visit from a pod of killer  whales which .may explain the  temporary reluctance of salmon  in this area.  Lots of herring around yet  which is an encouraging sign.  The muddy outflow from the  Fraser may spook the herring  within a few weeks time. Right  now tides are- carrying the coffee-colored water to within a  quarter mile or so of the South  Bowen Island shore.  Good fishing lor cohoes between Texada and Harwood Islands around Coho (Kiddie)  Point and Rebecca Rock ;>��� and  up at Grant Reefs south of Savary Island according to anglers  checked there last weekend. Sevr  eral limit catches were taken on  flasher-Fiasl-tail combinations.  Large chinooks were feeding on  pockets of herring around the-  Iron Mine Bluffs just soutlr of  Lund. Jack Thornton of Powell  F.  S.  McKINNON  From the Federal Dept. of  Fisheries, Vancouver  River boated an 8 and a 32  pounder here on the weekend. A  23 pounder.. was also taken in  the vicinity.  A few\ good-sized chinooks  came from Sarah Point and  Desolation Sound but fishing in  these areas was , considered  spotty.  Chinooks at Egmont Channel  and at Skookumehuck Narrows  provided fair to good action  through the week. A check of 15  boats aifloat at imid-day Saturday between Egmont and Telescope Pass counted a total catch  of 6 chinooks averaging 10 lbs.  1 jack and 3 coho.  Boat checks afloat from Bargain Harbour past Lee Bay to  Quarry Bay Saturday evening  came up with a catch totalling  4 chinooks averaging 14 lbs., 1  jack and 6 coho averaging 3 Jibs.  aboard 4 boats with an additional boat reporting no catch.  Two of the chinooks were 14 and  18 pounders troll-caught ori herring and flashers at Bargain  Harbour.  Twelve boats checked in Salmon Inlet on the weekend averaged 3 cohoes each. Fish here  are fairly large running about  4 lbs. -in weight.  Sunday's check of 4 boats between Storm Bay and the Narrows in Narrows Inlet came up  with an average of 2 cohoes per  boatb. Pirate Rock at the south  end of Thormanby Island was  reported to be slow through the  weekend.  Hon. Isabel DaWson, minister  without portfolio, has expressed pleasure at the announcement by the, Hon. Ken ICiernan,  minister of recreation and conservation, of the establishmett  of Garden Bay Provincial Marine Park on the north shore of  Pender Harbour.  Included in the new 402^acre  park is a 42-acre property purchased from long-time Garden  Bay residents, Mr. and Mrs. F.  G. Claydon. The Claydon property has about 1,009 feet of  water frontage on Garden Bay  and forms ��� the nucleus of the  park which also has frontage on  Garden Bay Lake giving a Unique situation of both ocean and  fresh water frontage  For many years, Garden Bay  has provided a sheltered anchorage for sailors exploring the Sechelt Peninsula and surrounding waters. When development  plans are completed, which include the building of comping,  picnicking, mooring and boat-  launching facilities as well as a  trail system to points" giving  scenic views of Pender Harbour,,  the whole area will be accessible  to highway travellers and water-  borne recreationists.  Protected within-y Garden Bay  Marine Park are two points of  historical significance. One is  an Indian graveyard on the  ocean frontage and the other is  an Indian coming-of-age ceremonial ground on the top of  Mount Daniel.

CYRIL WHITE   Chairman  WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION  BOARD OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  JOHN S.  STOKES  John S. Stokes, assistant chief  forester of the British Columbia Forest Service, lias been  appointed to the position of  deputy minister of forests, succeeding F. S.  (Fin) McKinnon.  In making the ahnoucement,  Mr. Williston said that Mr. Mc-  Kinnon's retirement which becomes effective July .1, has  brought to a close a distinguished service to the people of  British Columbia in the field  of forestry. He added that Mr.  McKinnon will be continuing in  the capacity of chairman of the  pollution control board. He  chaired the. recent pollution  meeting in Gibsons.  Meanwhile, Mr. Stokes, who  will assume his new duties  August 1, 1969, is one' of the  most familiar figures iri forestry  in B.C., having had a prominent part in developing the recent forest policies of close  utilization and third band wood.  I.believe every man should have  an equal opportunity for  employment. He should be given  the chance to show his ability  to do the job whether he is  disabled or not. I believe this  is an employer's responsibility.  Every year in B.C., more than <  1,000 men and women sustain  permanent partial disabilities in  industrial accidents. Many have  been rehabilitated by the  Workmen's Compensation Board  with the co-operation of employers  and return to their regular  employment. They are still a  valuable human resource. When  given the opportunity, they can  more than compensate for their  disabilities by doing a better job  for their employers by concentrating  their energies on the work they  can do. It is good business to  offer disabled persons the j&  chance of employment.  Labour, management and the  Workmen's Compensation Board  have been working together to  reduce the toll of industrial        /  accidents for many years���but  there is still much room for  improvement. Hazardous work can  usually be made less dangerous  by complying with strict safety  regulations prescribed by the  Board. The Workmen's  Compensation Board is embarking  on ah important campaign to  educate and remind workers of th��  heed to take every safety  precaution in the course of  their jobs.  The combined efforts of labour,  management and the Workmen's  Compensation Board are needed to  help reduce the more than  90,000 industrial injuries  incurred every year in B.C. and'  to return disabled workers  to productive employment.

Warm colors sizzle  from fire-cracker red or hot  orange to lemon yellow and salmon pink. Even stark white and  rich black offer dramatic possibilities.  There are truly many wonderful ways you can use remarkable canvas. Try it in fun-loving" stripes' to add a festive flair  or in subdued, citified tones to  lend a note of sophistication.  The best. way. to make sure  this summer's outdoor decorating scheme does,not. look passe  next year is to put your designs in canvas. Good design  and canvas were made for each  other.  Use canvas for a giant, red  circle   of  shade   where   guests  can gather for a poolside party.  Let it.sweep in parabolic shapes  over an oriental-style pavilion in  the garden to create a secluded  spot for al fresco dinriersl Or  have it transformed into a  bright Arabian cabana to provide privacy lor quick swim-  suit changes.  A stretch of canvas overhead  gives an inviting welcome to  doorways arid walkways. Entrances acquire a dramatic  touch. Porches gain shade and  privacy; and walkways are protected against the elements to  become cozy settings for outdoor entertaining.  Over the patio or by the pool,  canvas provides protection without confinement Windbreaks,  privacy panels, and cabanas  can be permanent or portable.  Wide glass areas can be shaded  by canvas to shield interior  furnishings from harsh sunlight,  reduce heat and glare, and cut  down on air-conditioning costs.

The truth of the matter is  many , don't care that/much  about gardening itself, but only  want to copy wliat Mommy and  Daddy are doing.  Regular sustained chores are  too much to expect of youngsters even at 10. But assign  them a task of piling neatly  last year's stakes or carting  debris -away in a small wheelbarrow, and they will do it well.  Get them to rake up leaves  from under shrubs and the  hedge while you are working  elsewhere and they will energetically set to.  To asist you with your chores  children will-need their own set  of tools and these should be  sturdily built and not tiny toys  which break easily. All are  available in the right size and  weight for use by the small fry.  The best way to encourage  young gardeners is to give them  a plot of their own. Help them  to work the soil and fertilize it,  but let them plant their own  seeds and when they get a little older, their own plants.  The seeds you choose for children should be selected carefully for ease of handling and  to give, quick results. Select  large. seeded species that will  quickly produce big, easily recognized plants. Sunflowers,  zinnias, beans, pumpkins and  radishes are sure to please. Corn ,  was always a favorite in our  garden even though we really  had no room for it.  -  Make the plot small 3' x 3'  and extend it gradually as the  child gets, older. Select, a good  sunny location with good gar- '  dening soil. Teach the child to  make rows whether they are  straight-or��� not.  I  I find that even a sax or seven  year old will use string for  straight rows arid make a drill  with his hoe. Most seeds will  fall i in the trench and the beans  or radishes Zwill iquickly appear  and: the .child's garden will  flourish<v^^v-.~^-li^>r-. . ..,.-;  As the seedlings grow, the  child will be happy: to water  them. When they are well developed use a mulch of peat  moss or decayed eaves to keep  weeds from appearing too thickly-  Teach him to thin out the  seedlings, and also how to transplant them, as they will probably be planted too thickly.  Do it at a time when planting  is easy so that he will be successful with some of them. Here  again shading the seedlings and  watering will probably fascinate  hiim.

Select a few four or five  inch pots and allow the child  to fill them with soil and plant  the seeds.   <���  Smal children will spend hours  filling the pots again and again,  replanting and unplanting the  seeds and thoroughly enjoying  themselves. If despite this, some  of the seeds grow (and if they  aire beans they will) the child  will have an early insight into  gardening.      ���  This practice will instill an  interest in gardening, and although it may not make them  expert gardeners it will be a  real help when they become  teenagers. Immediate pay off  will, however, be realized as  the youngsters begin to show  more respect for your flowers  and shubs.  Wanted: 1 fan!

A Crescent Beach clergyman,  Rev. Herbert Harris, was elected by aeclaanation as president  of Pacdific .command of the Royal Canadian Legion at the 29th  Biennial Convention in Prince  George.  Rev. Harris served two hitches in the RCAF. From 1940 to  1945 and again from May to September in 1946 when he received  a medical discharge.

Harris, as vice-  president of Pacific Command,  in sulbmitting his presentation  on the Legion's action in providing senior-citizens housing, told  branches who were not active in  this important field to take immediate action to form committees and start a project.  He pointed out that low cost  housing financed through CMHC  is a tried and true plan and not  the hair-lbrained scheme some  people imply. He called on veterans to put their money into  housing instead of talk.
