This was revealed as the result of an Order-in-Council from  Victoria which was presented to Acting Mayor Walter Peterson at  Tuesday night's council meeting by Clerk David Johnston.  Council has been working on the expansion of the municipality  for the last two years. Acting Mayor Peterson extended a hearty  welcome to the new people who petitioned to join the village more  than two years ago. It was too bad, he added, that Mayor Fred  Feeney was not present (now in Prince George on an assignment  for B.C. Telephones) as he worked hard to get the legalities concluded. Acting Mayor Peterson hoped that the added population  would join in and foe just like other Gibsonites.  About 40 years ago,  Gibsons    will be raised from 1,600 to 1,850  Brno choir in Gibsons July 4  The Brnensky Detsky Sbor  (Brno Children's Choir) from  Czechoslovakia, according to a  letter recently received from  . the conductor., Dr. Frantisek Ly-  sek,. is eagerly waiting for the  departure of their plane which  will bring them to Vancouver on  July 1. They will be met by  chartered-bus carrying a welcome 7cpn^itt^^which wdlic escort them to Gibsons. The./ are  scheduled for their first Canadian concert on July 3, at 8 p.m.  at Elphinstone Secondary School  Gibsons.  It is not hard to imagine the  intense excitement. of the choir  as they anticipate such a long  journey, their first to the western hemisphere. Although they  are seasoned travellers, having:  toured Western Europe, Central  and! Eastern Europe, this new  adventure to the western world  most assuredly will have a  marked effect upon their lives.  Children and parents and''all. the  various fraternal, civic and business groups supporting this  tour are equally excited about  the choir's visit.  Particularly worthy of mention is the splendid .co-operation  of the members of the Kiwanis  club of Gibsons and all those  who have assisted them on* the  SurisHin^^oStet: r-N^-oraiy ^wiH?  the concert-be a thrilling'-'experience for all who atterid, but  also the many recreational plans  for the choir will surely be most  enjoyable to the choir themselves. ���..���";  The program they are presenting on July 3 is in five  parts, consisting of: Part I ���  liturgical music, 16th to 18th  century;' Part II ��� a triptych in  cantata form entitled Peace.  This work was composed by H.  Klyne Headley in fulfillment of  a commission given by the Brnensky Detsky Sbor for the 50th  anniversary celebration of the  independence of Czechoslovakia.  The poetry was written by Claudia Jean Headley, Parts I and  III, and Elizabeth J. Mackay,  . Part II, daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. A. M. Mackay of Gibsons.

Some 20 years later after a considerable amount  of argument the Headlands area  was added. That made Gibsons1  a village with an area of 290  acres. With the expanded' terri"  tory added it will be 1,100 acres  in extent.  The area taken into the village  extends from Granthams at  Reid Road, along the south side  of Reid Road! as far as Park  Road, down both sides of Park  Road to the Sunshine Coast  highway and from there it jogs  through undeveloped land down  to the water in vicinity of Gospel Rock on Gower Point Road."  Population, figures for Gibsons  which will have the effect of increasing government grants to  the municipality on a population  basis. Taxable assessment in the  expanded village will show an  increase of approximately $614,-  000 which would swell the present assessment figure of .$2,457,-  000 to $3,071,000.  The acreage of the village before expansion was 290. With the  new territory added the village  will cover 1,100 acres, almost  three times its previous size. Going back to the original Gibsons  as established in 1929. present  day Gibsons is five times its original size. Detail on this will foe  found in a story on an insidft  page headed How Giibsons Grew  Greater.  A cold welcome!  Accident proves fatal  A coroner's inquiry is being  held into the death of Eric Rosen of Roberts Creek who was  injured in a car accident May 31  resulting in his death on June  18. The mishap occurred at the  highway and Flume road corner  The funeral was held June 21 at  the Harvey Funeral Home Family Chapel with Rev. W. M. Cam  eron officiating. Burial was  made in Seaview Cemetery.  Eric Emmanuel Rosen was  born in Sweden Aug. 8, 1890.  When two years old the family  moved to Alberta where his father homesteaded. As a young  man- he worked at various jobs  until 1921 when he settled in  Stringifield, Sask., where he  farmed until 1947.  Moving to BiC. he secured employment with the forestry service in the parks department.

On arrival at Elphinstone  school shortly before 1:30 p.m.  to give an hour's free open-air  concert, the band leaders found  nothing had been prepared for  them.

The band decided as there  were no greetex-s, no chairs and  no music stands it would be best  if they moved on to Powell River. Some citizens showing up  for the concert left disappointed.  Old Folks week!  Hon. Isabel P. Dawson, minister without portfolio, has urged  full support by citizens of British Columbia, for Pioneer and  Elderly Citizens' Week, June 29  to July 5.  "Our senior citizens are the  people who have contributed  greatly to the state of well-being in our province today," Mrs.  Dawson said, "and the government of British Columbia has  proclaimed June 29 to July 5 as  Pioneer and Elderly Citizens'  Week in recognition of their  great accomplishments and abilities."  Mrs. Dawson explained that  about nine percent of British  Columbia's population is over  65 years of age, and that the  government would spend %TYz  million this year to ensure that  British Columbia's citizens continue to enjoy life in this pro-,  vince.

A growing community  On May 23, 1886, George Gibson and his two sons were travelling by boat from Nanaimo to Vancouver when a strong southeast  wind blew them across towards Howe Sound. They sheltered overnight at a siandy spot on Keats Island, opposite what is now Georgia Heights.  Next morning the Gibsons ventured across the narrow channel into what is now Giibsons harbor and George Gibson, liking what  he saw decided here was where he wanted to settle. He claimed  District Lot 686 and his son claimed District Lot 685. Thus the  foundation of Gibsons Landing started.  In 1929 it was large, enough to ibe incorporated as a municipality. In 1950 the area generally described as the Headlands was added. Now ywith its expansion, Gibsons is close to five times its original size.  Any Observer can note there is little bragging about Gibsons  growth. It is accepted as an indisputable fact. As the late Bob  Burns, Gibsons village clerk, in commenting in his history of Gibsons people, wrote there are many, too many to list, who carried  a full load according to the opportunities of the moment. There  would still be all those who he did not know about. It was his observation that men and women who really do things never talk  a/bout it, and are seldom heard of; one only learns oif it accidentally. 7  There are. quite a few names that should appear on a commemorative tablet marking the growth of Gibsons. Perhaps it is better  that their good deeds are revealed in the natural expansion of  Gibsons. Maybe we should keep it that way.  A satisfying appointment  The appointment of Mr. Prentice to the chairmanship of the  Canada Council will probably prove to be mutually satisfying to  both the appointee and to the Council.  I met Mr. Prentice twice. Once when he was making a tour of  the mill at Port Mellon and once when he addressed the local Ki-  manis club. All who met or heard him were impressed foy his kindly demeanour and obvious good sense. ���.-���.',  Mr. Prentice was one of a group of Austrian ahd Czechoslovakian industrialists who left their homelands ahead of the Hitler invasion. To British Columbia's foenefit several of the widely experienced, educated and cultured men settled1 here and successfully  entered the business community, particularly in our forest industries.  From the very beginning of their life in their new homeland  they took a serious interest in the educational land cultural activities of this province; its universities, its theatre, its opera, its symphony and other musical organizations. Their interest was never  superficial or dictated by social ambitions but came naturally from  their cultural background,.from' their legacy of,the age-old culture  ���of their native lands.  Canadian Forest Products must be very proud of this appoint- .  ment. I think that the citizens of British. Columbia will foe pleased  that Secretary of State Gerard Pelletier and the cabinet appointed  Mr. Prentice to this sensitive and important post. He will fill at  with wisdom, grace and competence. ��� Jules A. Mainil.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE   YEARS  AGO  Sixty-four attended a joint  hospital auxiliaries tea in St.  Hilda's Hall, Sechelt. Five  auxiliaries, Pender Harbor,  Halfmoon Bay, Roberts Creek,  Gibsons and Sechelt were represented.  The school board faced a problem of having too many grade  five pupils to take care of for  the next school season. There  were 62 for Gibsons and 20 for  Sechelt.  The 1963 financial statement  of the school board showed expenditures at $851,585 including  an almost $14,000 over-expenditure.  Mrs. Agnes John, grand  matriarch of the Sechelt tribe  died in St. Mary's hospital at  the age of 90.  10 YEARS AGO  The Port Mellon Community  church basement has been poured and ds now ready for the  superstructure to be built.  Starting with six members 12  years ago, Roberts Creek Legion now has 42 members. More  than 70 persons turned up for  the gay party to celebrate the  birthday anniversary.  Land with a 251 foot frontage  which could be turned into four  lots, was offered for sale, at  $3,000 in Hopkins Landing area.  The school board has chosen  Trail Bay High school to be  the name of a proposed school  for Sechelt. (This high school  stall has to be built).  20 YEARS AGO  After 28 years with the department of education V. Z.  Manning said farewell to teachers of Sechelt school district at  a dinner in Sechelt Inn. He retires as district superintendent.  Chief engineer of the public  works department will look into  the proposal of a Halfmoon Bay  cutoff road as requested by  residents.  H. W.

Ken Whittaker was the unanimous choice as president of  Sechelt's Board of Trade at the  annual meeting. Jack Mayne  remained as secretary.  By A. R. BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa  PLANTING  A  WINDOW  BOX.  The art of planting a window  box lies in the selection of  plants that harmonize both  among themselves and with the  color of your home. By careful selection you can produce  an agreeable color effect by using cultivars of either one kind  of plant or a few distinct kinds.  You can also get diversities of  foliage texture and color. tha t  will blend together.  From a multitude of plants  you can also select types that  will suit every aspect your  window box is ylikely to be  given. Right now is-the time to  plant your window box while  plants are still available in  large quantities and in great  assortment.  The average garden soil is  just not good enough for plants  growing in confined areas such  as boxes or pots. If it is on the  heavy side it becomes soggy  and is easily compacted; if it  is sandy it dries out quickly  and contains little nutritious  substance.  To overcome this, make up  a compost of one part of loamy  garden soil to one part of peat  moss and one part of builder's  sand. If your soil is sandy you  should include two parts of soil  to one of peat and one of sand.  To one bushel of either mixture  add a level tablespoonful of a  complete fertilizer.  Before putting in the soil  mixture place a 2-inch layer of  broken bricks, crocks or stones  at the bottom for drainage. On  top of this put some partly  decayed leaves, straw or rough  peat moss, and then add soil  to the box to within two inches  of the top.  A box 10 inches wide may  have three rows of plants: tall  kinds 12 to 15 inches high at  the back, medium ones not  over; eight to 12 inches high  for planting in the middle, and  overhanging or drooping plants  such asy cascade . petunias ,7 or1  y the trailing lobelias, which will-  conceal the box itself, in the  ;   front.  You   must   also consider  the  .-.' color   of your  house.   A   white  frame house, for instance, will  7 be enhanced by the bright blue  ���  of   ageratum   and  lobelia,   the  7 yellow    and    orange of dwarf  marigolds   and   white   alyssum  trailing.   over     the edge.  Red  brick,"~~walls..   are particularly'  7 hard to harmonize. Here white  , or    light7colored     flowers  and  .; those that have massive green.  foliage are good. .  Before ordering plants look  at a garden catalogue and work  out the combination, for yourself by making careful notes of  colors and heights of the annuals.  . You might like these selections: salmon geraniums for the  back, silver santolinas for the  middle and dark-blue balcony  or cascade petunias as the overhanging plants; white geraniums,, scarlet annual phlox, and  white balcony or. cascade petunias at the front;-orange marigolds, blue ageratum and variegated periwinkle, and blue  lobelia drooping down over the  front of the box; Blue Magic  or ..Capri petunia , Harmony  marigolds and blue balcony petunias in the front.  For a very hot, sunny position you may well use succulent  plants such as cactus, aloes,  trailing ceropegias, and little  pickles.  (Othonna).  For shady locations the tuberous begonias or ever-blooming  fibrous begonias will grow very  well. So will the new Elfin  Treasure and Imp series of patience plants which are more  dwarf and extremely florifer-  ous.   In   the  shade,   too,  plant  foliage plants such as bright  coleus or dark purple petolla  with variegated ivy as the trailing plant.  The gas cade petunias come in  red, white ,and pink. They make  ^splendid     window     box plants  when either one color or a mixture is used.  Supplementary to the window  box it is interesting to have  small trellises on each side. Annual vines such as the cup-and-  saucer vine^ morning glory,  climbing nasturtium or foiack-  eyed Susan vine may foe used.  It isn't necessary, of course,  to use flowers at all. For those  who like salads and vegetables,  such plants as tomatoes, dwarf  beans, chives, swiss chard and  parsley might be grown. Good  vines to go. with these are the  scarlet   runner   bean   and   the  rvtaU^gr owingHohiiato?  During the summer, feed the  window box every two weeks  with a 20-20-20 soluble fertilizer.  Keep all weeds from the boxes  and pick off each faded bloom  so as to prolong the flowering  season..7- , ���... /  Those who would like to continue using their window box  after the first frost should plant  outdoor; chrysanthemums in a  vacant place in the garden. Dig  these up when they're in bud  and plant them iri the window  "box to replace the annuals that  have then become rather straggly.        V  N.

DUCK  DOWN  Eiderdown Is collected from  the nests of the eider duck. It  is not plucked from the bodies  of dead birds.

In the forest, for instance, each pair of nesting  birds selects and defends enough  territory to support its family.

For a fascinating hobby, /try.  your hand at batik-painting ���  a method of putting designs on  cotton fabrics with the use of  wax and dye. Originated centuries ago in Java, the process  produces distinctive prints with  a rich, marbleized look.  Batikihg is an ideal home  craft for all ages, reports the  Canadian Cotton Council. Materials are inexpensive and the  whole process can be done in  the kitchen. All you need is a  piece of cotton fabric, a few  boxes of home dye, paraffin,  and a brush.  A batik design is made by  brushing melted paraffin or wax  on certain portions of the fabric  and dipping it into a dye bath.  The dye colors only the unwax-  ed areas.  After the fabrics dries, apply  wax to the dyed portion. Then  dip the fabric into a second  dye bath. The process of waxing and dyeing is repeated for  each color in /the design.  The intricate, marbleized effect ��� so typical of batik prints  ��� is created when the wax  cracks and dyes seep in.  For your first endeavor,  choose a cotton" fabric like  batiste or muslin. Cottons produce the most effective batiks  because of their natural ability  to absorb and retain dyes. It is  best to start with a Simple design. Sketch your design or copy  a painjtling with simple lines  and no more than three colors.  With practice, you will soon  be ready to move On to more  complex compositions. It is  easier than yoii think ito capture on cloth the simple lines  of a Braque painting or the  textured look of a Van Gogh.  (Continued   Next Week)  D. G.

Selection of the Roberts  Creek site has' gained ^widespread approval, and the Region  al Board gave the Recreation  . Committee    encouragement    to  proceed.  The committee has been instructed to provide accurate  costs on the building and operation of the centre. It is feasible to go to referendum by this  December. In order to establish  cost estimates, the Recreation  Committee has engaged the services of ah architectural firm  and their engineers to design  the centre. This firm has designed similar centres in other  areas.     ���-'.������  The cost of this initial work  must be bdiTie by the committee, and they have now begun a  drive to raise the necessary  $2,500. Many organizations have  expressed an interest in the centre, and now. is the,time that  financial help is necessary. The  Sunshine Coast Lions club has  donated another $256,, and hopefully other clubs will support  the project as well.  Another source of revenue  will be the membership drive.  All people. planning to use the  Recreation Centre are urgently  requested to pay $5 .toward their  first year's dues. They will receive a meinlbershii> card.  Please send your money to Recreation Centre Committee, Box  638, Sechelt or Box 430, Giibsons.  The committee hopes that popular support shown to date will  produce some money. K the  centre means something to you  ahd your family, please support  it now.

TEL has made it-necessary for management  to prepare for sudden work stoppages at any given location throughout the Company's province-wide system.  Many supervisors have been deployed to assure that personnel will be available  in each location to maintain customer services in event of any work stoppage by  classified employees. The uncertainty of the situation means supervisors will have to  cover these posts until a new contract is signed.  Certain work functions may have to cease because of the removal of supervisors  from regular assignments, but it is not the Company's intention to deny re-employment to employees who lose employment because of work stoppages caused by the  labor dispute.  All employees willing to return to their jobs when picketing ceases in each  instance will be assigned as quickly as circumstances permit. Because of the internal  disruption work stoppages cause, however, it will be impossible to assign all employees to work immediately when picketing has ceased.  B.C. TEL employees should listen to their local radio stations for information  about when to return to work. Specific instructions will be broadcast for traffic  operators, service representatives and other commercial business office staff. Other  classifications will be called individually and advised when to report for work.

A good book store will have  a choice of several texts that  are written for the general public. The law is not an esoteric  technical incomprehensible subject. It is, in fact, mostly common sense and very practical.  It is well suited for the needs  of our business community and  our society in general.  The law is not however, an  exact science, as are mathematics and physics. It is not all  contained in text books or in  statutes passed by the federal  parliament or the provincial  legislature. The statutes have  to be interpreted according to  the facts in each particular set  of circumstances, as individual  cases come before the courts  for decision.

Still, a fair number  of heavy fish were taken���most  by regulars with a good knowledge of local waters.  Heaviest for the week was a  41 lb.    Squamish    Riverjbound  .   white chinook boated off Coppermine,  Bowen Island  on a trolled herring strip back of a 16  oz. sinker.  Other heavyweights  last week included 25 and 17Y2  pounders taken at Gower Point,  a  21  and a 22 at Cape Rogejr  Curtis, 30,  25 and 21 pounders  from   Halkett  Point  and   a   21  from    Salmon    Rock.    Several  other heavy fish were reported  taken in the Gibsons Gap area.  Heavy flows from the Squamish system have clouded Howe  Sound   waters   down   to  "about  Port   Mellon.   Both  effort   and  catch remain light in the Upper  Sound area.  Fair fishing weather saw a  record turnout of anglers dn the  upper section of the Sunshine  Coast and apparently most of  them had no trouble locating  fish.  The fishery officer's report  mentions good coho success at  Scotch Fir Point at the entrance.  to Jervis Inlet, at Mystery Reef  below Savary Island and at the  top end of Texada Island with  limit and near-limit catches almost the rule. Flashtails, Tom  Macks and Pearly Pink plugs  were heavy favorites among  lures.  In these areas as in other  parts of the gulf the story goes  that deep trolling was the ticket  which means there must be substance to the theory that prolonged hot, dry weather coupled  From the Federal Dept. of  Fisheries, Vancouver  with light winds drives the cohoes deep.  Chinooks have also been taken   in  good   numbers   at   such  locations asithe top end of-Texada Island and waters off the  Powell River Hulks.  Last  Sunday ., evening    F.     Roscovitch  cruised up  to     the     Westview  Ramp with a 23V_: pounder followed by D. Smith with a 22^  pounder taken at the Hulks, and  R. Cofield with a 24*4 pounder  from the Texada Island Light.  One of our fisheries lads on a  holiday  trip   up   here   took   20  and 26 lb.  white chinooks  Friday on  slow-trolled whole herring back of a flasher ��� one  at the Hulks and the other off  the Westview Dock.  Out again  on Sunday, he took two 7Y2s and  an $y2 pounder with -the same  gear ��� two at the Hulks and  one at the dock.  The overall picture for the  lower section of the Sunshine  Coast was fair to good fishing  from Thursday through Saturday.  Spotty fishing on Sunday.  t;v  17 LB.

Tel, meaning work stoppages may occur suddenly and  without advance notice in any given part of the Company's system.  Such work stoppages will cause some inconvenience for telephone users,  but the Company will maintain telephone services to the best of its ability  in each case of work stoppage.  Management employees have been assigned to essential tasks and these  tasks will be covered by management until a contract is signed so that we  can assure service is maintained.  As a telephone user, you will find it advantageous to note the following  suggestions for use in event a work stoppage occurs in the part of the Company's system serving you:  Emergency Numbers  Keep telephone numbers for your safety agencies  handy. Operator positions may be busy, but you'll  be able to get through to police, fire, ambulance  and other services in emergency when you have the  numbers beside your telephone so you can dial  directly to the service you required  Directory Assistance  Use your telephone directory to find the telephone numbers you need. When you must call  Directory Assistance, make note of the numbers you  get for future reference. Our Directory Assistance  switchboards are being staffed, but service will be  better for all if maximum use is made of your  directory.  Local Service  Most of the Company's business offices will remain open, but with limited staff. Installation orders  will be accepted, but installations will have to be  carried out on a priority basis with available staff  being employed first to meet urgent requirements  for safety agencies and other essential services.  Repair Service  Repair services will be carried out, but also on a  priority basis. We'll do our best to keep all telephones working, bat must give attention first to  essential-service customers, such as doctors, hospitals, fire and police services and ambulance  agencies.  Long Distance  Where Direct Distance Dialing service is available, dial your  long distance calls directly. See your telephone directory for  area codes and instructions on use of Direct Distance Dialing  and follow those instructions to obtain telephone numbers in  distant places by dialing directly.  Don't be surprised if a male voice answers when you dial  "Operator."  Give the operator area code number together with the number  of the distant party you are calling whenever possible and on  out-of-province calls, provide the area code. This will speed  service.

This was decided at last Wednesday night's council meeting  when Mayor William Swain and  Aid. Norman Watson expressed  feeling against garbage collection on an assessment basis. It  was their contention the best  system would be to hire, a collector and make him responsible  for his own fees. On a mill rate  basis the collection would be  done through usual taxation  methods.  Aldermen decided they would  like to look over the Regional  District zoning bylaw to see how  it affects them as regards the  use of trailers as permanent  homes.

When discussion arose over  the use of money granted for  ambulance service for some  other use temporarily, Clerk  Ted Rayner'. informed council it  would be preferable they left  that fund alone until the Union  of B.C. Municipalities had clarified the situation with Victoria,  as there is a feeling the grant  must npt be used for any other  purpose.  Aid. H. Nelson reported that  it would take about $7,000 for  the proper roads program; this  year for the village. It is quite  likely the council will go ahead  with such work because little  has been done over the last couple of years. He also reported  three street lights had fallen  victim to local vandalism.  Also a deliberate attempt to  damage the clubhouse in Hackett Park was reported. Someone  aided by a two-by-four had battered their way through the  block wall breaking through the  cement blocks. Aid. Thomipsion  said the building was a knotty  problem andi it could be shut  down completely as the vandalism was becoming progressively  worse.  (Mayor Swain wanted sidewalk  holes fixed up as quickly as possible before the village was faced with a lawsuit. He reported  seeing one woman fall flat on  her face when entangled in a  hole.  A suggestion was made that  a local citizen would construct  cement flower boxes to line the  main street provided merchants  would take pains to look after  them once in place. The matter  will be looked1 into further.  Dr. E. J. Paetkau appeared  oni behalf of the regional community recreation project seeking council's moral support  which he received when he assured the aldermen that no  money from council was involved; ;   r:" .;,;        '*- *f. *������  Enquiries were also made as  to what had happened in the  Ray Newman case involving  building bylaw infractions.

When and how did-Gibsons become a village? Hf this is the  second expansion of the village  what was the first? These questions were answered by a man  who knew more about Gibsons  area tfian inosl people. BoB  Burns, village clerk for many  years wrote for the Coast News  a series of articles on the his*-  tory of Gibsons, back in 1957 and  from them the following was  taken:  By the late 1920s the area  close to the wharf had become  fairly well built up; true, quite  a number of the houses were of  the summer shack category and  many continued to be used principally as summer places but  quite a number of permanent  residents had also moved in,  and the business centre was  growing.  However, access roads continued1 to be perhaps merely a  mark on the map, pr at best a  trail that might or might not  be passable to a- team or wagon  or to that somewhat new vehicle  that was beginningto be seen,  a motor truck.  Water service was perhaps  from a shallow well, which often was dry, or a small pipeline  laid on the surface, supposed to  supply water during the summer but usually failed to do so.  Clearly, something had to be  done. Mr. W. W. (Daddy) Winn  had been operating a store, also  had become postmaster. Mr.  Winn took the matter in hand.  After considerable study of various avenues it was the opinion  oif Mr. Winn and his associates  that the most feasible method  UIC news  Q. My wife would like to know  if she. can file for benefits as*  she was working when I was  collecting. She is now unemployed. I never claimed her as  a dependent?  A. If she has not made a  claim for benefit before, she  must have paid thirty contribution, weeks in the hundred and  four weeks immediately prior to  her claim. Eight of these must  have been in the fifty-two weeks  immediately prior to her claim.  If she fulfills these conditions  and is available for and capable of work she would be  eligible.  Q. I worked for two and a  half weeks. Prior to this I was  collecting",; unemployment insurance benefits. Do I have to  reopen my claim?  A. You only have to serve a  waiting period once during a  benefit claim. If your,claim has  not terminated you may reopen  it by applying at your closest  Unemployment Insurance Commission area office.

This summer, HOLIDAY  is the ideal way to get away from it a91.  would be to organize under the  Village [Municipalities act. Considerable  opposition, developed,  apparently  based  on  the fear  that taxes would be increased.  .,.���.  Mr. -Winn's .original  suggestion, 1 undeds^  tion,  I understood,  was to in-  However the opposition was sufficiently forceful that in order  to get action it finally became  necessary to leave out much of  the   original; plan  and  to   cut  down to a parcel of land being  roughly the easterly 60 acres of  Lot 6��6. After much work this  was finalized and the organization of the Corporation of Gibsons Landing was gazetted April 29, 1929.  (Mr. Burns then relates how  the -King's Printer in preparing  the official order for publication  in the, Official Gazette omitted  the apostrophe before the final s  in Gibsons, thus making legal  the Gibsons minus an apostrophe. Later the fooard of trade arranged with postal officials that  the Landing part pf the name  be dropped with Gibsons only  remaining as the postal address.)  A provisional board- of commissioners had been appointed  composed of Mr. W. W. Winn,  S. A. Holland and Miss Flora  Jack who was clerk.

Willis-  ton, minister of natural resources and Hon.. K. Kiernan,  minister of conservation and  recreation.  Mr Shrum: Over the weekend  of June 14 and 15 the peaceful  quiet of the late evening and  early morning was disturbed by  the noise of a helicopter flying/  up and down the hydro right-  of-way north of Gibsons spraying the trees and undergrowth  with some foul smelling chemical with the object presumably  of controlling growth.  I wonder just how long people will put. up with this sort  of thing. On the one hand the  government tell us that pollution of all kinds is one of the  major hazards of life today and  that if the people themselves  will not do something about it,  then legislation will be passed  to make them do something.  On the other hand the government itself is apparently perfectly within its rights to spray  this defoliant or.whatever it is,  killing off all the vegetation it  touches, polluting the water supply and doing untold harm to  the fauna of the area.  I do not think anyone is going to convince me that this  spray has no adverse effect on  the birds and wildlife with which  it is bound to come in contact  and   even   the   residual   effects  will be evident for months to  come. The animals will eat  some of the vegetation affected  by the spray and will be affect-,  ed in one way or another by it.  As this is the time when there  are many young birds about,  I am sure that the death rate  must be incredibly high in that  field alone.  The hydro, right-of-way cuts  right across the Gibsons watershed. Although there may be  no pollution now, when the  next rains come this stuff will  be washed into the ground and  find its way into our water system.  What an example for a gov-  Coast News, June 2S;:1989.  ernment to set to its people.  The popular motto Keep B.C;  Green is to my way of thinking a very admirable one but  it does not mean a thing when  officialdom can come along and  desecrate the countryside at  will in this way.  Why not put the unemployed  and the students to work? It  may cost a little more but in  the long run we would be better off. If we go on like this,  Rachel Carson's predictions in  her book Silent Spring will fast  become a reality. Let's try to  use a bit of common sense and  preserve our natural resources  for generations to come.���John  Hind-Smith,  Gibsons.
