Ellwood)  '    ' Most parents afnd students by  i flow realize ','-*"?&" Elphinstone  "Secondary-School's' limited facilities can no longer accommodate its increasing student population. As a result the school  has been forced1 to employ a  shift system so that students  can continue with the official  B.C. curriculum.  Unfortunately the school exercises no control over this situation and parentsi and students  should be advised that shifts  will of necessity toe continued  until the necessary facilities are  provided.  We regret very much the dis<-  ruption of family life that will  occur in tooth your home and  ours due to this situation. We  are endeavouring to conserve  our time and to minimize this  disruption wherever.possible. In  this connection, we are implementing a very tight schedule  and the success of this schedule"  is dependent upon the support  and co-operation it receives  from both parents and students.  It is inevitable that some parents and1 students may, for personal: reasons, disagree with the  shift assignments they receive.  However, it should be noted that  these shift assignments have  been made ^to; facilitates the best  instructional; situation 'for the  school as a whole.  First shift details: Grades 8,  11, 12, 7:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  Bus arrives at school 7:25 a.m.,  Bus departs from school 12:30  p.m;  Second   shift:   Grades   9,   10:  12:30 p.m. - 5:22 p.m. Bus arrives at school 12:20 p.m. Bu%  departs from school^ 5V30v"p.m.  Tuesday, Sept. 2 has been designated registration and .organization day for all students, s On  this day only, students will be  attending Elphinstone for jonly  VA hours., The first shiflj will  commence at 11 a.im. and will  be dismissed at 12:30. The second shift will run from IB: 30 until 2 p.m. First shift students  are requested not to arrive until at least 10:50 a.m.,, and second shift students should1 not-ar-:  rive before 12:20 p.m; Pliease. ,be i  advised that this schedule ap-:  plies only for Tuesday, Sept. 2.  It is essential that; we make  every effort to minimize all distracting noise which one shift  may cause another,- when it is  either coming to school or leaving school. Therefore we require  all first shift students to go directly home and expect them  to foe clear of the building and  out of sight and, hearing by  12:30 pm. Second shift students  are not to arrive in the vicinity  of the school /prior to 12:20 p.m.  The school doors will open each  morning at 7:20 a.m.  The policy of permitting senior parttime students to complete their grade 12 will foe continued1. All such students should  enroll on September 3 or 4 personally.  Your co-operation ahd support  of the school is the best contribution that you can make to  assist us in; providing our students with the most effective  instruction.  Elementary too!  (By ^Principal .G. >Cooper)  Reading and Writing and  'Rithmetic time is almost here  again and many a parent will  wipe a tear from misty eye next  Tuesday morning as Junior is  reluctantly sent to school after  one of the shortest sunxmer vacations for several years.    '  Kindergarten pupils and their  parents will meet in the Gibsons  gym at 10:30 a.m. to get themselves sorted out for car pools  and a.m.  or p.m. sessions.  The bell will ring about 9:15  to call all other pupils to assemble in their class areas.  Lists will be posted at the main  doors on Friday and the pupils  can determine where their divisions are located well ahead  of time.  Pupils in Granthams will catch  a bus going in the other direction this year as they will attend school in. Langdale. Seventh year pupils from Port Mellon and Langdale will attend  Gibsons Elementary as was the  case last year.  . And if you are new. to the Gibsons Elementary attendance  area see that your parents get  you registered' ahead of time  on Thursday and Friday of this  week at' the school office and  avoid the opening day rush.

Although it was a lot of hard work, both were pleased with the result.  outlines its stand  Sechelt Waterworks has informed its custoriiers by mailed  letter to every household, of its  i stand on the Sunshine Coast Regional P-strict'si move to expropriate its waterworks' system.  The waterworks company  maintains the regional district  has no powers to use expropriation as a means of achieving  its aims. Here is the entire letter as sent to the Coast News  by J. G. Bailiie, general manager of Sechelt Waterworks  Limited:  Dear Customer: The purpose  of this letter is to familiarize  you with facts concerning the  alleged expropriation of our waterworks system by the Sunshine  Coast. Regional District. Unfortunately, articles1, other than our  paid notices, appearing in your  local: newspaper concerning the  present situation are in some  parts either misleading or erroneous, perhaps because only  informaition supplied foy the regional board has been used in  the.i publications. Certainly, no  local press representative has  made any attempt whatsoever  to; obtain our side of the story,  and to weigh this before launching into press reports purporting to explain relative facts to  the public..,  In 1967 the Village of Sechelt  retained the services of John  Motherwell, consulting" engineers, to make a valuation of pur  physical plant, as at this time  the village was considering purchase of same from us. We willingly co-operated, supplying Motherwell with comprehensive  plans and other, details, and ar  ranging   their  personal   inspection of the system.  Early in 1968, Dayton and  Knight, also consulting engineers, were engaged to study the  water supply for the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, including the Sechelt area. Again, we  co-operated by supplying information for their survey.  The published reports by the  above two firms appear to foe-  conflicting so far as valuation:  of our waterworks system is  concerned. The Motherwell report showed a valuation of $91,-  752 for the physical assets owned by us, but excluding 2V&  acres of land. No valuation was  contained for intangible assets,  such as various easements, water-rights, rights-of-way, and interests in contracts and licences  Also, as we pointed out to the  Regional District by letter, this-'  valuation did not account for  recent dam renewal works, de-'  ferred chlorinator works and  was low on valuation of a new  tank, based., on actual cost. All  of these excluded works total  close to $7,000.  The Dayton and Knight report  did riot contain any detailed analysis of their valuation of our^  system, which they suggest is'  $63,000. Instead, they refer to  the Motherwell report, so presumably have used this as a  basis; however, neither they nor  the regional board have explained to us how they arrived at  their valuation.  Our   depreciated   book   value  for the physical assets only of,  our system at the time of nego-  tiations with the regional board  (Continued on Page 8) Coast News, Aug. 27, 1969.

Split shifts resulting in awkward times for Elphinstone school  students and their parents are a direct result of the defeat last  December of a referndum which would have made such split shifts  unnecessary.  Not only did it 'create the split shift situation but when that  construction proposal is again placed before the public it is going  to cost an easy 30 percent more.  The vote which saw the referendum turned down was 072 it-  favor and 597 against. Presuming, that the possible, resident vote  would foe close to 3,000 or morei, the vote was about 40 percent of;  total eligible electors.  Comment on the result should not be needed as the answer to  the problem is obvious. However a Human Rights bill was mailed  to the Coast News from Victoria and it started a line of thougbt.  This bill is for the purpose of lessening the possibilities of discrimination between human beings. It goes into considerable t_iou-s_.alt-  nots.  It is a human right to express one's opinion when elected rep-  resentativas seek permissive powers from the electorate. Unfortunately the Act for the Prombtio^iand protection io^  Rights of the People of British'<^Mn-foiad^  pointing out some thou-shalts.  There is a strong move afoot to abolish referenda and in view  of the general lack of interest shown by the electorate perhaps it  might ibe an excellent idea.  With the average referendum costing the school district about  $2,000 it is money down the drain. The schools need more space  for more pupils and in the present setup under which school boards  operate, trustees cannot look ahead more than three years in any  construction to be considered. Defeat of a referendum causes on  an average a one year'�� delay. If and when it passes it eventually  takes more months before building operations can start.  There will be howls about the early ahoflaie bus times for many  students but the situation should result in more of the voters getting out marking their ballots pro or con. There will be another  referendum to go before the public soon and it can be said without  hesitation that if this coming referendum does not pass, the number  of people who will voluntarily seek election to be a" school board  trustee should ibe remarkably small. Who will want to. take over  an impossible job if school board members are unable to house  students as laid down by a provincial government elected by some  voters who do get out to mark their referendum ballots.  In these times, failure to get out and vote when duty calls.  starts a pyramid of events which are costly to the taxpayer. Think  at over.  This fall, when buying children's clothing, look for garments with the/Canada Standard Size (OSS) label It will  make it easier for you to buy  clothing that fits. Watch for information aibout the CSS program in publications, on television, iand in pamphlets prepared by the Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs to  inform consumers about Canada  Standard Sizes "and how they'  .. work.  Why Canada Standard Sizes  for children's, clothing? Most  parents ��� especially mothers ���  know the frustration of trying  to get a good fit in clothing for  their children. For years, the  common basis for, sizing children's clothing has been age.  Many shoppers, however, find  that the : size relating to their  child's age is just not right.  Furthermore, a shopper may  find that the fit is different  among garments with the same  size number. For example, two  : pairs' of boys trousers,, both  size seven, may not fit the same^  way. ,One pair may not fit in the  legs, while the other may foe  too large in the waist. This is  caused by the fact that different manufacturers often have  different specifications for the  same size.  This situation has .caused irritation and inconvenience to  consumers because many people shop or children's clothing  by mail or phone^and do not ���  or cannot ��� take the child to  the store to try the garments  on. This results in delay, in providing, the7?child's clothing, and "  a high rateof return and exchange of items.  To solve this problem, the  Canadian Government Specifications Board established a committee to standardize children's  clothing sizes. The committee  decided that fit is indeed fit as  sucli, and that age has no direct  bearing on fit. Three 8-year, old  children, for example, can each  take a different size. The basis  of standard sizes, therefore,, is  buiklbfbody measurement, not '  age.  To develop .standard sizes,  measurments were taken of  more than 150,000 children  throughout the United States  and Canada. From these measurements, standards were produced for some 75 items of children's clothing from underwear  to outerwear. To identify clothing which meets the standards',  a label was designed bearing  the words Canada Standard Size  within a coiled tape measure  showing the figures of two chil-  - dren. .  This system is voluntary.  However, nianufacturers or retailers' who'Wish to use the OSS  label must .ofbtain a licence from  the Standards Branch of the'De-  partment of Consumer and Corporate Affairs. To use the label  they must insure that each garment has been made in accordance with the proper size standard. The label, therefore, indicates that the size is based on  one set of measurements. It does  not relate to age, nor does it relate to' quality; the CSS label  can appear on both expensive  and inexpensive garments.  The key to using Canada Standard Sizes for better fit-is to  New area  take the proper measurements.  Follow these simple directions:  < 1. Measure over light weight,  close-tfitting underwear, hold  tape snug but not. tight.  l2. Height ��� from floor to  top of head, without shoes'.  3. Waist Height ��� from waist  level to floor.  4. Chest ��� close up under  arms.' .  5. Waist ��� around smallest  part of waistline.  7. Hips ��� around widest or  fullest part.  7. Compare measurements  with CSiS tables and select the  size that most closely matches  your child's measurement.  8. Buy garments bearing the  OSS label.  Example: If you wish to purchase a pair of girl'�� slims,  measure her waist, hips and  waist height. If she measures  waist 2W2", hips 27",, waist  height 33", then her OSS size is  10.  While there will always be a  few children for which standard  size garments are not made, the  majority of children will be assured of a better fit with Canada  Standard Size garments. The attached tables of body measurements, for example, are for regular sizes. In addition there are  OS sizes for boys long pants in  slam and husky ranges. For  such sizes take your child's  measurements to your retailer.  Because  this  system is voluntary,   not  all  garments   will  have the OSS label. But several  major manufacturers and retailers are beginning to make and  stock CSS   approved   children's  wear, and more are expected to  do so as consumer demand increases.

The respondent having connmit-  ted sodomy; 3. the respondent  having .committed an act of bestiality; 4. the respondent haying  committed rape (As this would  usually include adultery, this  ground would ibe an alternative,  or it would be used in the very  rare cases where the respondent, although haying vbeen guil  ty of rape;, had hot committed  adultery but was guilty of rape  by reason of 'being an accessory to the crime); 5. the respondent having committed a  homosexual! act; 6. the respondent having committed bigamy;.  7. the respondent having' treated the petitioner with intolerable cruelty ��� mental or physical.  Under section four of the act  the grounds are: 8. The respondent having been imprisoned for  a total of three years in the five  year   period  imanediately   preceding the divorce action; 9. the  respondent having! been impri-  soned for a two-year period immediately preceding the divorce  action for an offence tn^ sentence for which was  death or  ten    years    imprisoninent,    or  more; 10. Three years gross addiction to alcohol by the respondent in the period im-nciediateiy ���  preceding ; the  divorce   action; '  11. Three years gross addiction  to. a narcotic drug iby the respondent, in the period immediat-  ly preceding the divorce action;  12  Three years absence toy the  respondent in the period immediately  preceding   the   divorce  action (this would be similar to  obtaining a death presumption); ;  13.   Non-consumnaation   of   the  marriage,  and. inability of the  respondent  to do  so,  for  one  year, by reason of the; respondent's illness or disability;  14.  Copyright applied foi  non-consummation of the marriage and " refusal toy the respondent to so do, for one year;  15 three years separation, except where the petitioner deserted the respondent, and 16.  five years separation where the  petitioner deserted1 the respondent. .  The divorce sought may not  however be granted if the judge  at the trial is of the opinion that  the parties can become reconciled. Likewise if there is any  collusion the divorce decree will  be refused. Collusion, in general, is any agreement to which  the petitioner is a party, to fabricate evidence to deceive the  court. Even if both parties want  the divorce the government (in  the person of the attorney general) may intervene where there  has been collusion.. A lawyer  appointed by the attorney general can appear at the trial and  call witnesses to prove that the  evidence introduced to prove the  grounds for divorce is false,;  manufactured, or fraudulent,     v  If the divorce is sought under  section three the decree will  usually be refused if the. petitioner is guilty of connivance or  condonation. Connivance is allowing or encouraging the commission of the act complained  of. Condonation is forgiveness af  the act complained of and usually consists of the parties having intimate relations after the  petitioner has learned of the offence.  If the divorce is sought under  section four the decree will be  refused: 1. If there is a reasonable expectation that cohabitation will occur or' be resumed  within the reasonably forseeable  future; 2. Where there are children, ii_ the divorce would adversely alfect the making of  reasonable arrangements for  their maintenance, and 3. Where  the grounds are three or five  years separation, if the divorce  would be unduly harsh or unjust to either party or it would  adversely effect arrangements  for maintenance of either spouse  If the respondent merely de-  ,  nies that 'hey coiaimitted ah^iMefyfj-  or deserted his spouse, or what-  f  ever the grounds are, the judge  will decide who is telling  the  truth after hearing all the evidence on both sides.    -  FTSH!

"Negotiations 'between the re-,  gional board and our company  started in October, 1968, at a  meeting in Vancouver. The regional board made a verbal offer of $50,000 cash to us for purchase of our- water system assets. The writer made it quite  clear then to the board representatives that their offer could  only be submitted to company  directors for their consideration,  and at no time was it ever indicated the offer would be accepted.  In November, 1968, we made  an   offer  to   sell  shareholders'  equity in  our  company to the  regional district for $90,000 and  a further meeting was held between the two parties in Vancouver   in   February,   1069.   At  this meeting, it was pointed out  to the regional board that this  method of purchase would also  mean their undertaking the company's assets and liabilities, and  the   most   significant   item   of  these,  other  than  the  physical  assets, was a debt to the parent  company,     Union     Steamships  Limited, of approximately $20,-  000,  covering advances to  and  prior   subsidization   of   Sechelt  Waterworks by the parent company.   The   regional  board re  quested further time to consider  our offer / and also ; requested  copies of all our legal1 documents covering: permits, rights-  of-way licences, agreements, etc  Although we werei not compelled  to supply these v we did so willingly, as the negotiations to this  point had apparently been conducted amicably and in good  faith. In a lengthy letter to the  Regional Board under date of  February 24, 1969, we submitted the requested documents', together with -comments on our  system's valuation,," and justification of our offering price.  Further negotiations at, this  stage were turned1 over by the  regional board ,to their solicitor. His first letter to us on  March 19, besides requesting  further information in a brusque  manner, also waved the stick of  expropriation. Later, he advised us the regional district did  not hatfe the power to acquire  shares of a limited company,  but could acquire the physical  assets, and that the district  would formulate , another offer  on this basis.  On April 30, we submitted an  offer to sell our fixed assets to  the district,for a price of $12il,-.  000. The district countered with  an offer of $60,000., which was  refused.  The regional district, through  their solicitor, presented us with  an', alleged expropriation notice  on June 6, 1969, and advertised  BALLET  Royal Academy of Dancing Syllabus  Anne Gordon  Charter Member, C.D.T.A., B.C.

They later informed  us the purported e_^ropnatioh  h-id taken effect on July 2; 1969,  arid requested our co-operation  in turning over control of the  system and customer accounts  records to/them.
