Hope that Gibsons 1971 Centennial fund money would Ibe
used in Gibsons area for the
benefit of senior citizens was
expressed in a letter to Gibsons
council at its meeting on Tuesday last week. The letter from
Mrs. M7 E, Telford, one of the
area's pioneers, reads as follows:
-., "I understand by the newspapers; that there are plans for
a Recreation Centre at Roberts
Creek, to which all Gibsons (and
other centres). Centennial money will ibe put. They have stressed there will toe facilities for
: senior citizens.
The Dominion Centennial money was put to Brothers Park and
at that time it was stated that
there would be other facilities
after the ball park.
I very,much doulbt if many of
our Giibsons senior citizens have
even seen the iball park or will
do so. I have no objection to the
ball park and am glad the young
people have it. But that used
one Centennial money.
I think I may say that very,
very, few of Giibsons senior citizens will see the Roberts Creek
Recreation centre or use its facilities. Very few have cars.
Gibsons, where really our development of the Sunshine Coast
started, is becoming only a
place to .drive through to get to
somewhere else. We have nothing for visitors to do or see.
We  possess,' by the  wisdom
started we could improve that
land and build at least the shell
'of"an adequate museum.
Going up to the small towns
• up the Fraser. Valley one finds
interesting   small   museums   of
'their- local  interest;   something
'which if in Giibsons everyone in
Gibsons could see and use.
7: Many  of   Our   senior  citizens ,
have helped to build up the village you now enjoy. Do something that they also can enjoy-,
-andbe proud of.
Yours truly,
.  M. E. Telford.    *    •
P.S.I know I could get many
names to this-letter if I were <
able to go around and about to -
do so, tout am not able and most '
senior citizens are inarticulate .

He did not name anioverall price

7 By unanimous vote it was de?
'cided that Ted Osborne wpuid
be given the opportunity to start
on the seawall. The contract will
call for an expenditure of $6,000
oyer a three year period with
payment toeing made in three

on the basis of 100 feet per year

He worked with people  The Sunshine Coast, Tbereft of one of its prominent citizens, will  have the chance of hearing him deliver the principal speech to  graduates of his former school, Elphinstone Secondary, Saturday  evening.  The prominent citizen is the former principal, W. S. Potter,  who with his wife and daughter are now North Vancouver residents where he has an administrative post in the school system  there.  Mr. Potter was Alberta born, Pincher Creek, where he received elementary and secondary schooling, later attending Normal  school in Calgary with seven years of teaching to follow in the  Lethbridge area.  In December 1940 he enlisted in the RCAF and was commissioned in 1943. He gave five-and-a-half years of service in Canada,  Newfoundland and at RiCAiF headquarters in London and while  overseas served as secretary of the Pacific Operations Director of  Planning.  On his return from overseas he completed his degrees, B.A.  and B. Ed. at UBC and later his M. Ed. at the University of Washr  ington. Nine years were then spent in Rossland area as teacher  and vice-principal of the secondary school where he was also active in Scouts, Jaycees and the AOTS.  He came to- Gibsons in 1956 as principal of Elphinstone Secondary school and for 13 years served the district under sometimes  discouraging conditions due chiefly to governmental policies in the  financial field.  But to regard his school efforts as being the only field in which  he served his community, would toe to omit a great deal of his unselfish worki Gibsons United Church will most certainly miss him  as he was one of the pillars of church work. You name the projects that have been the subject of public endeavour this last ten  or more years and you will find the signature of W. S. Potter on  a good many official docuinents.  His desire to work with people for the (betterment of the community was continuous and for that the people of the community  should give their heartfelt thanks for a job well done;;  Irresponsible characters!  Every fall a few misguided citizens wearing red jackets straggle into the woods. Responsible hunters wish they'd stay at home.  These are the irresponsible characters who mistake other hunt-'  ers and domestic stock for game. Given access to leased timber  lands, they repay the favor .by shooting at logging equipment, with'  damage sometimes running into the thousands of dollars. They  tear down fences, leave gates open, trample crops, disregard game  laws, shoot up No Hunting signs and powerline insulators, and generally behave like spoiled and destructive children.  Fortunately these nuts are not numerous. But the great majority of responsible hunters and sportsmen for their own protection  must rid the woods of them. They give every hunter a bad name.  If you're a hunter, this means you. If you value the privilege  of free access to the woods and fields each autumn, it's up to you  to take positive action to protect that privilege. Otherwise, sure as  shooting, it will one day be lost to you.  What action can you take?  Next time you see some irresponsible character with a rifle  violating game laws, or damaging private property, report him rto  the appropriate authority. You owe it to yourself, and to every  other responsible hunter. (Contributed).

Pollution in all its forms-  including water, air, soil and  environmental ��� is due for a  thorough going over7 next month  by representatives of local arid  regional governments in British  Columbia.  A spate of resolutions from  city, town arid village councils  and regional (boards demand pro.  vincial government action to  control pollution. Arid this action, they say, must Ibe effective  and economically workable.  Their demands will be debated iby delegates to the 66th annual convention of the Union of  B.C. Municipalities Sept. 17-19  in Kamloops. Attendance is expected to reach a record 1,300,  including over 600 official delegates from 138 municipalities  and 28 regional districts through  out the province.  Included in the proposals is a  resolution from Maple Ridge  and Kimberley asking for a  workable economic solution to  the whole problem of sanitary  sewer and sewage treatment  financing.  The resolution, which is endorsed (by the Association of  Kootenay and Boundary Municipalities, notes that most communities are trying to correct  water and land pollution stemming from urban growth toy ex-.  tending sewer systems and installing treatment plants. But  they are experiencing economics  difficulties because of the money market, the resolution says'.  . While the government has established a form of aid for municipalities installing treatment  plants, the resolution says it is  not too practical an approach  to the financial problem, and a  workable economic solution is  required.  A resolution from Salmon Arm  Port Moody and the Alberni  Ciayoquot Regional District says  pollution control requires research, development, measurement and enforcement machinery toeyond the means of muni  cipalities.  It asks the provincial government to provide province-wide  standards, enforcement arid penalties for all sources of environmental pollution.  Noting the impracticality of  air pollution. controls on a local  basis ��� pollution may not originate from real property, tout  from ships ��� a resolution from  Delta says municipalities need  greater authority, and a maximum penalty stiffer than the  present $500, than they have under existing law.  Present division of authority  between various government departments is confusing and  therefore ineffective, says the  Association of Kootenay and  Boundary Municipalities. Its res  olution suggests giving the  health minister total responsibility for pollution control.  A resolution from Richmond  claims that a lack of water purification standards and an absence of knowledge aibout the  future use of a river make it impractical for a municipality to  plan treatment. ,  This sort of accurate information, which is affected by the  actions of upstream municipalities, is essential, the resolution  says. The provincial Tgovernment  is the only authority with practical control over the whole of  such rivers.  Oak Bay municipality and the  Cariboo and Kooteriay-Boundary  regional districts ask for legislation making it mandatory for  all beverage containers to toe  returnable. Their resolution also  endorses recommendations of  the B.C. Nature Council that deposit charges be at least VA  cents for cans and 5 cents for  bottles, with an extra charge  on non-reusable containers to  cover the costs of collection and  disposal.  A Kootenay-Boundary resolution  covering another  area of  J     Latest report  (Period ending Aug. 31.)  September brings about a  change in the sport fishing picture in Vancouver-Howe Sound  waters, usually for the (better.

And, of course, there's  always the cohoes.  Coho runs are beginning to  build as the fish move an from  the gulf and ocean feeding  grounds heading towards' spawning streams. The runs aren't expected to toe large this year but  pick a day these next few weeks  to fish Gower Point or perhaps  the Sand Heads and chances  are you'll tie into some top  notch action just the same.  Worlcombe, and Popham Islands produced larger cohoes including a 16 pounder which is  about the biggest for the7 Vancouver-Howe Sound area this  season. Gower Point produced  good coho fishing and sizeable  cohoes as welt; also the odd  small chinook.; ; Salmon. Rock  close.toy, turned on. the same  kind of action during mid-week  but folded on the weekend. The  Rock 7was the scene of tussle  with a 28 pounder which was  mooched, here last week. 7  Inside THowe Sound there were  few boats and fewer fish except  for some limited activity for  rental boats working the area  between Horseshoe Bay and  Lions Bay. Catches here included a mixture of cohoes and coho  grilse plus a few small chinooks.  Word from the fishery officer  covering the upper section of  the Sunshine Coast above Jervis  Inlet is that last week was one  of the few really good fishing  weeks in his area. The warm-up  came Thursday and continued  through the weekend with practically all (boats from the Ferry  Landing at Saltery Bay clear  up to Desolation Sound taking  fish, chinooks to 53 lbs., medium  chinooks and cohoes.  Egmont produced cohoes and \  From the Federal Dept. of  Fisheries, Vancouver  a few medium chinooks intermittently during the week tout  was slow most of the time.

Sometimes new parents keep infants  on "milk alone" for too long.

Your  doctor will tell yoii when.  Other suggestions are to offer milk 7 by cup  at 5-6 months, encourage "early self-feeding,  avoid force feeding, and eating specific foods.

Mr. Daly is a-tormer  resident "of Pender Harbour.  Jose, the Mexican watchman  I had met while touring the  university grounds^my first day  in Chihuahua, arrived at my. hotel promptly at las ochas (eight  that evening to show me the  town.  We set out..by taxi to look at  some of the joints. We would  stop to look in a window and  Jose would grin broadly and ask  me if I liked. They all seemed  a little dingy and suspect to me,  but I tried to make it clear I expected him to show the way.  So he steered us to a set of  swinging doors below a sign>  saying La Fiesta. They opened  into a dark, lysol smelling room.  As my eyes adjusted, I could  see a long bar down one side,  a small bare wood bandstand  opposite, and crooked little tables ringed around a dance  space in between. There were a  few Mexicanos talking quietly  at the tables, hardly distinguishable in the shadows. One looked  up from under his sombrero and  exchanged grins with Jose.  I went for the bar, where it  wasn't quite so dark. A fat faced  man with heavy black moustaches eased off his perch behind a high, ornate gold cash  register and sauntered down to  us, not speaking. Jose beamed  up at me in anticipation. There  seemed to be only one thing to  say, so I said it: "Tequila."  It was early, Jose said, so  the damas were not here yet.

PB18  THE  Christian Science  Monit^  Box 125, ACtor Station  ed, whose job was dancing with  homibres, so much a dance. And  one can guess what else in ibe-  tween sets.  The girl with the yellow hair  started looking down at us and  Jose smiled invitingly, but she  was still busy dealing with the  bar man. About this time I began to get huge butterflies in  my stomach. What have I got  myself into, I thought.  As luck would have it, I saw  a way out, and grabbed at it. I  was running out of cash, having  stood for the drinks and several  taxis, it apparently being understood that I should do so.  :  Jose looked a little disappointed when I told him the problem,  but generously offered to return  to the hotel with me to get more.  As we passed on our way out,  the damas clucked loudly and  the yellow blonde begged us to  stay, but Jose assured- them we  would be back. When we reached the cool safety of the night  air,' I breathed a long sigh of  relief.  When we were back at the hotel Jose, who sensed my feet  beginning to drag 'in. the venture, asked if I'd rather forget  it for that night. I had all the  reason in the world, dog tired  as I was from my extensive  walking that day, and I said  "Yes, mayfbe. . ." but my resolve to see the Mexican night  life prevailed and I said, "Dammit no! Wait and I'll get some  more money.''  , I suggested we try a place in  the park we'd looked at earlier  ��� anything to detour from La  Fiesta. It was a good move.  There was a band in full swing,  and more 'metered maids' but  plenty pf amateurs as well.  Girls cost five pesos' a dance,  so I said enough of that and  made for a pretty young Mexi-  cana who had been' left sitting  alone by her friends.' Despite  truly inspired' efforts to make  my intentions plain, she claimed  she was unable to understand  my Spanish, so I returned to my  tatyle feeling rebuffed. The next'  thing I knew a big dark fellow,  obviously her boyfriend, was  crossing the floor toward me  and I thought oh-oh.  But instead of inviting me outside, he invited me to join the  group, saying his girl friend's  sister (whom he'd been dancing  with) spoke English.  Jose wanted to go to another  place outside the'city where his  chicas a go-go were, so the first  thing I did iwas finance another  long taxi ride.  Angela, the sister was a voluptuous, lovely girl with flashing black Spanish eyes, and we  danced and talked until the go-  go girls came on at one and  gyrated before us in scanty  fluorescent costumes. Their  dance showed more classic  Spanish influence than pop American, the movements restrain--  ed and intense, countering the  music as much as complementing it. The show was climaxed  by a strip act by a heavy legged  Mexican lady who 'went about  as fur as she could go.'  Then it was back in the taxi  to the hotel' and out with the  wallet, but Angela and Mario  said no, that would not be necessary, and the drivergave my  money back.  So this and a lot of' other'little things are helping to dispel  my bad illusions about los Mexicanos. A friend who has spent  most of his life travelling around  the world once wrote me from  Mexico, "the white man fears  the southern latitudes and invents stories to substantiate his  fears, but in fact I feel more  at ease on the street here than  I ever did in the U.S."  iNow I am beginning to see  ,this was no exaggeration. There  is a certain unpleasant stigma  attached to the gringo tourist  which one runs into mostly when  dealing with vendors and public  officials, but the further south  one goes and the darker one's  Coast News, Sept. 10, 1969.       3  tan becomes the easier it is to  circumvent this: Then one discovers that people are unusually warm and gentle.  It was two a.m. when I flopped into bed and dropped into a  long sound sleep, in a room  away from the noise of the  street. Now I've got to pack to  catch the Chihuahua-Al Pacifico  morning train through the Sierra Madre Occidental to Los Mo-  chis. I'm looking forward to the  mountains and the. spectacular  Barranca del Cobrej an incredibly deep canyon. Then down to  Mazatlan on the sea, wHich I  haven't seen since Seattle.

PRINCE CHARLES, the Prince of Wales, explains the cello to his  brother, Prince Edward during one of the scenes from Royal Family which will be seen on the CBC-TV network Sunday, Sept. 14.  Editor: On behalf of the members of the Sunshine Coast Kiwanis Club, I extend; sincere  thanks for the excellent news  coverage given to our fourth  annual Pancake Supper, held  on' August 23 last.  We were most pleased with  the write-ups given both, before  and after this event, which we  feel was an outstanding success.  Your co-operation and assistance is greatly appreciated.  J. R. Harvey,  Vice-President,  Sunshine Coast Kiwanis club  Editor: This is just a short  note to say we haven't forgotten  our friends in Gibsons. Many of  our things are still to be unpacked or placed, but we have  attended to the essentials.  The manse looks new and is  large and the property is quite  large with five fruit trees and  a huge barrier of blackberry  vines, and a grass-cutting area  that is going to keep me occupied every Monday until the  growing season is over.  Margaret and I have been  working at a church Vacation  School, and it has certainly  kept us occupied every day and  every evening, as we had very  little time in which to prepare  for it.  The church building and hall  are very old, but I am told are  well used; Certainly the hall is  well used, judging by all the  meetings held in it.  Thanks   for   sending   us   the  paper, .which we read with-deep  inteijest.   Our address   is   483  Steveston Highway,  Richmond..  ���Murray Cameron.  Editor: Last week's lightning  and thunder storm inactivated  our phone. I wanted you to know  the names of the two men who  saved Mrs. Hart on Labor Day  after .being afloat nine hours in  the ocean. Tom Griffin of 2048  E 22nd, Vancouver and Quint.  Asp, over 60, of Reno, Nevada,  a guest at Tom's place on Roberts Creek Lower road dropped  anchor around 7 a.m. and then  heard faint cries for help. They  could see no one but rowed in  the right direction and spotted  Mrs. Hart, the victim of the  boating tragedy. Her chief worry was about her husband, who  was subseqently picked up,;  dead. ''"'* '''������'"���  They rowed as fast as they  could with the woman, blue  with cold, and reached the  beach at the foot of Smith st.  They alerted people nearby and  Mrs. Balfour sent down whiskey  and blankets, then Mrs. Connor  arrived with coffee.  As no phones were working,  Tom Griffin, just about at his  last gasp with rowing so hard  drove in to alert the ROMP,and  an ambulance. Before the police  arrived neighbors got the poor  woman out of her wet garments  and into a sleeping bag with hot  bottles then a stretcher was improvised from oars and blankets  and Quint Asp, already exhausted from his rowing and due to  enter hospital soon for surgery,  aided by Andy Kelvin of North  Vancouver, Bill Nelson of Smith  road and Dave Marshall of  Maskell Road hauled the stretcher up the steep cliff face.  Dave .Marshall then drove her  to St. Mary^s Hospital at Sechelt.  You might say everybody  cared.  ���Jean Sheridan.  Kelly family visited  After an enjoyable holiday in  England and Wales, Mrs. A. M.  Harper has returned to her  home, Shasta Lodge at. New  Brighton on Gambier Island.  While in Wales Mrs. Harper  attended the Investiture of His  Royal Highness the Prince of  Wales at Caernarvon Castle, also the International Eisteddfod  at Llangollen.  When in England she visited .  Rev. J. H. Kelly and Mrs. Kelly  who   sent   remembrances   and  love to all their Sunshine Coast  friends.  Mrs. Harper also made a pilgrimage to Royal Bamburgh in  Northumberland w h e r e, s h e  found the original St. Aidan's  Church after which the little St.  Aidan's Church at Roberts Creek  was named.  This ancient church was built  in 1131 and stands on the site of  the first church built foy St. Ai-  dan in 635 A.D.  The rector, Rev. Stephen J. F.  Dennett made Mrs. Harper very  welcome and was greatly interested in how the relation of the  two churches came about.  FRY REARING AREAS  The provincial fish and wild  life branch reports construction  of fry rearing areas adjacent to  the spawning channel at Ruby  Lake was begun during August.  It was noted last winter that  newly hatched cutthroat fry preferred shallow sheltered areas  with lower stream velocity than  the main channel. In order to  provide areas for rearing and  feeding small side channels and  pools are being cut into the  channel banks and the success  of this feature will be valuated.  In addition to provision of rearing areas, the 280 foot channel  itself is being widened to more  closely resemble the area in  which peak spawning was observed last year.  Lower Mainland residents will  have an opportunity to view a  partial eclipse of the sun Thursday, Sept. 11 from 10:40 a.m. to  1:07 p.m., with the maximum being reached at 11:52 a.m., but  viewing it directly could do serious eye damage, the Canadian  National Institute, for the Blind  warns.  The only safe method is to  project the image of the eclipse  through a small hole in a cardboard box onto a sheet of white  paper. Sunglasses, film negatives and binoculars with sun  filters are not safe to use as the  infra-red rays of the sun can  easily penetrate them causing  burns on the retina of the eye.  HELP FOR CHILDREN  The Vernon Chapter of the  Canadian Association of Children with Learning Disabilities,  a non-profit organization, is hold  ing a workshop on October 24  and 25 of this year.

Johnston  Municipal Clerk  puuuiiiuuiuttiuunmttttMiM  Ivy and Lois  of  LILA'S BEAUTY SALON  THANK  Trffi MANY KIND PEOPtE  for their  H  _J  I FLOWERS and CONGRATULATIONS |  | Ivy Fiedler and Lois Maclean �� Point of law  Copyright applied foi  Some more questions on our  criminal law.  Q.   What is a party principal  to a crime?  A. Everyone who: 1. Actually "con-mits the offence, or 2.  does, or omits to do anything  for.the' purpose of aiding: any  person to commit it, or 3. Abets  any. person in committing the  offence; is a party to it and may  be charged as "party principal"  with the actual crime, and not  merely as one who assists, or  who is an accessory, or charged  in some lesser capacity. An example under item 2. above,  would be a servant who unlocks  the door of his employer's house  and leaves, doing so to allow a  confederate to enter and steal.  "Abet"- mentioned in item 3  above, irieahs to encourage,  countenance, uphold.or support  another person in committing a  crime.  Q.   What is Homicide?  A. Homicide is causing the  death of another .person. Homicide is either culpable or non-  culpable. Culpable means reprehensible or blameworthy. Non  culpable homicide would occur  in general, for example, if death  was caused by an accident without negligence, and this is not  an offence at all. Culpable homicide is murder, manslaughter  or infanticide. Murder is capital  or noncapital and the difference  is very complicated to explain,  but in the former case the court  must impose the death penalty  and in the latter case it cannot,  the maximum sentence being  life imprisonment.  Infanticide occurs when a mother by a wilful act or omission  causes the death of her child  (within one year of birth) if at  the time she is not fully recovered from the effects of giving  birth and her mind is disturbed.  If she was fully recovered, the  homicide would of course be  murder or manslaughter. Q_f she  was completely insane, no  crime would have been committed. Culpable homicide : that  is not murder, or infanticade, is  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  manslaughter.  Q_   What is a trial in camera?  A. This is a trial closed to  the public arid is very rare. The  courts of this land are open to  the public and a trial in camera .will generally only be ordered: 1. Where the safety of  the state is involved, for example spy trials; 2. In cases involving sexual offences against  children ��� for their protection,  and 3. Oases involving sexual  perversions where it would not  be in the public interest that  shocking or disgusting evidence  should be heard.  UIC problems  Q.   What would happen to me  if I. do not report earnings while  drawing Unemployment Insurance benefits?  A. First you would be required to pay back any benefit  received above your entitlement  You might also be subject to  prosecution under the Unemployment Insurance Act, or a  penalty might be assessed. This  penalty is for a given amount of  money and must be liquidated  before future benefits are paid  to you. If prosecution was undertaken, you might be subject to  a fine not exceeding $500 or six  months in jail, or both. If in the  opinion of the insurance officer  your failure to report earnings  was an oversight, no further  action would be taken except to  recover the amount overpaid.    /���  Q.   If I work part time at a  local department store arid receive my holiday pay each time  I get paid, what do I report on  bi-weekly report forms?  A. Whenever you work you  must declare your gross earnings. In your case,:as you receive holiday pay each pay period, this must be included. You  should indicate on your report  forim,in the detailsection, thkt  part of your salary's which is  holiday pay;        '    l  Minibus to  help visitors  Volkswagen Canada limited  has provided a new 7-seater  mini-bus as its contribution to  the big new regional tourist pro--  motion project recently launched under the provincial government contributing grants plan.

Only when you bruise their  foliage do they reveal their very  close kinship to the onion;, in  fact a few species have no scent  at all. Many species of ornamental alliums are planted in the  perennial borders, irock gardens arid test gardens at the  Plant Research Institute.  They include- a fairly wide  range of flower colors ��� yellow,  white, pink and purple and foliage varying from narrow and  thin to wide and strap-shaped.  Some have seedheads that may  be used in arrangements. They  vary in height from six inches  to giants of five feet.

They  grow best, like most, bulbous  plants, in a well-drained light  loamy soil in full sun. They are  very easy to grow; in fact, their  ease of cultivation and their  amenity to adversities are the  main reasons for growing them.  The earliest to flower in our  gardens and perhaps one of the  hardiest is the -white flowered  Allium zebdanense that was obtained from a nursery iri Manitoba. This grows to 18 inches  high and looks and smells less  like an onion than most.  The Turkestan onion (Allium  karataviense)' flowers about the  same time and is quite outstanding. From the center of a Tpair  of large, wide arid flat mottled  leaves arises a flower's cape  six to eight inches high with a  huge flowerhead at least a foot  wide, composed of pinkish flowers. This makes an attractive  and interesting plant for the:  front of the sunny flower border.  Another large flowering onion  is in flower at the same time.  This is the Iranian onion (Allium aflatunense). It has thick  flower stems three to four feet  high and bears deep purple  heads of flower before any other  perennials have attained this  size in the border.  The lily leek (Allium moly) is  perhaps the best known and  most vigorous of the group. It  spreads very easily to form, a  mass of vegetation with yellow  flowers in June and July. Its  stalks are a foot high.  An especially attractive species is the blue globe onion (Allium caeruleum) which producr  es 18-inch flowerheads an; inch  br two in diameter. It has tight-;  ly grouped, deep blue, star-shaped florets. A similar species is  the ball-head onion (Allium  sphaerocephalum) but this has  ball-shaped florets of a much  deeper purple hue. This species  blooms froni; July, into August.  The Persian onion (Allium al-v  bopilosum)"isva; most unusual  species. Its large flowerheads,7(  almost a foot wide, are composed of loosely arranged light  violet florest with a metallic  sheen that causes them to sparkle and glisten in the sun, especially when viewed against a  dark background. .  Allium breaphiluni! with small  heads of carminejpink flowers  and its red-flowered cultivar  Zwanenberg are dwarf four to  six inch plants well suited for y  the rock garden.
