The  party of seven  fisher  men aboard managed to salvage all their gear  after the accident which occurred Friday afternoon!  Tmrible B-hout ordeal  A nine-hour drift supported by  a life jacket saved the life of  :Mrs^rMiriam;''.:Ha_*t;.;'.'24;: of Bur-  nalby, who was picked out of the  cold water of Georgia Strait.  Her husband William Harvey  Hart was picked up dead by air-  sea rescue:'/:'craft crewmen, a  coupleof -hours later.        i-  The story ROMP' obtained  from Mrs. Hart is that their: 19  foot boat after circling Gambier  Island was headed for home aind  had.-passedi P<^t-^MeUpig^^tb  Langdale in"sight' when the boat  hit a deadhead and submerged.  It was about dusk when .the  accident occurred. From then  on efforts at attracting attention were useless.  There is no  definite indication whether the  pair drifted down the steamer  channel and out into Georgia  Strait or whether they drifted  past Keats and Gibsons and ��� out  through the gap.  However Thomas Griffin' of  Vancouver, fishing at anchor  with Quinn Asp of Los Angeles  heard a woman's cries about 7  anl.; Monday. They paddled  around quietly until they found  her.' Later the air-rescue team  ��� ed to Vancouver.  From the columns of the Vancouver Sun the following story  is added to the other marine accidents alon'gthis part of the  coastline.

After resting 48 hours in St.  Mary's Hospital, Mrs. Hart, accompanied by her father return-  per starts  ee  Adherents and friends of Calvary Baptist Church received  a special challenge the weekend  of August 24.  The series of events began  with a pot-luck supper Friday  evening, followed by an interesting set of slides explained by  Mr. G. N. Weston, stewardship  and public relations representa-  tative from the Briercrest Bible  Institute.  Sunday morning witnessed a  special church service. Speaker  Induction for  new minister  Induction of Rev. James Williamson as minister for Gibsons United Church and for the  West Howe Sound United Church  charge will take place Sunday  evening at the church. The services will ��� be preceded by a potluck supper starting at 5 p.m.  Until organization can be completed there will be no Sunday  school for the time being. Arrangements are being made for  meetings; concerning the Sunday; school.  MONEY TREE RAFFLE  Winner of the Royal Canadian Legion ladies auxiliary money tree raffle was Mrs. Viola  Wilson of Gibsons. The draw  took place at the Labor Day  sports'at Port Mellon.  The   fathers   of   the   city   of  Halifax    established    the  first  regular   postal   service   withi-i  the city in 1755, just six years  after its founding  ,       ,.��,  was Rev. H. Klassen, home director of. Wycliffe Bible Translators. Prior to assuming administrative duties in this organization, Rev. Klassen spent some  years in Mexico reducing languages to writing and developing  alphabets for them.  Following the regular evening  service, a farewell was held for  four young people going to the  Briererest Bible. Institute near  Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.  Maureen Owen, Brian Cooper  and Stephen Riglby will be taking high school. Edward Cooper is returning for Bible School  classes. Audrey Owen, not pres-  I ent at the farewell, is another  young person from this. com  munity returning for Bible  School.  Soloist for both the morning  and evening services was Mr. C.  Chartrand fromvCalifoniia.  Nurses start  new season  The Sunshine Coast chapter of  Registered Nurses will begin its  fall program with a potluck supper at the home of Mrs. Margaret Lamb at Dolphin- St. and  Trail Rd., Sechelt. This event  will start at 7 p.m., Sept. 8.  An open invitation is extended to all graduate nurses on the  Sunshine Coast to attend and become acquainted with chapter  activities. T^he loan cupboard is  now weU established.and was in  considerable demaric. during  summer months. It is expected  shortly that an announcement  will be made about the acquisition of larger items of equipment-for home use.  *   ���,....,_v....,-.. ���.  of last week when their chartered 36-foot caibin cruiser sank  off the Trail Islands near Sechelt.  They were rescued by Bill  Adshead, a well-known Vancouver baseball personality in the  192.0s. and currently manager of  a Vancouver, sporting goods  store. v      "  ��� The family was going from  , Gibsons to Jervis Inlet to. fish  for salmon when the boat apparently hit a deadhead and sank  about 7:30 a.m. Monday.  "It went in three to five minutes," Ellett recalled Wednesday in .a telephone interview  from his home.  "We didn't have time to save  anything. Just barely enough  time to get the kids out of bed,  into life jackets and into the  water."  The children ��� Vickie, 16,  Vance, 15, Victor, 12, and Vandi  10, then grabbed some cushions  and jumpqd overboard with his  wife,  Loretta, he said.  Ellett followed with 15 feet of  rope and tied his family together for what was to be a two-  hour wait. '  At one point a tug boat passed  within 20 . feet without seeing  them.  At about 9:30 a.m., Adshead,  of. 719 Firdale St., Coquitlam,  and three others in a 27-foot  runabout came by and picked  them up. - ���     ���   . '  DEATHS  SMITH ��� On Sept. 2, 1969, Danny T.

The  use of containers other than the  standard garbage cans is causing a nuisance and this will increase when the wet weather arrives and cardboard cartons  and other containers get wet.

Water harmless  Leaf mold is coloring Gibsons  water supply as a result of the  diversion of water in the area  involved by a B.C. Hydro plant-  life killer spray. This was^re-  'ported to Gibsons council Tuesday night by Aid. Gerry Dixon,  chairman of waterworks.  He said that diversion of the  channel had resulted in a disturbance of the soil which in  turn created a murky color to  the water. However it was  harmless and would eventually  disappear as the stream cleared  up. . Coast News, Sept. 3, 1969.  sewers!  Serving the Mt.

A Liberal point of view  This is written by a Liberal ��� obviously it expresses a Liberal  point of view. My congratulations to Mr. Bennett and to his supporters. They have, once again, been very successful.  I have never liked the Bennett government. While readily conceding their enterprise and efficiency in .the realm of the physical  ��� roads, bridges, ferries, power dams etc. ��� they have always  appeared somewhat cool and indififerent to human beings. Admittedly it is easier to build roads and dams than it is to upgrade education, easier to build bridges and ferries than to create an atmosphere where the helpless, the weak and the unfortunate poor can  lead reasonably normal lives; nevertheless, with the vast resources at their disposal, they could have done much better in  these fields. "Main Street" and big business at any price are pos^  sibly not the be all and end all of existence.  The N.D.P. have suffered a rout. Through hindsight there ap--  pears to be several reasons for this:  The choice of Mr..Berger as leader, brought about by the support of organized' labor, when they had at least two other choices  that probably would have been more acceptable to the general  public, namely Mr. MacDonald and Mr. Barrett.  The demands of organized labor backed up by strikes or threat  of strikes, which, even if legal, disturbed and probably alienated  some of the public.  Mr. Berger's announced intention of expropriating the B.C.  Telephones.  The seeming affluence of the province and illusionary material  wellbeing of a substantial portion of the electorate.  The deplorable showing of the Labor government in Britain.  The basic conservatism of British Columbians.  The N.D.P: did not elect its new leader, more serious, it failed  to re-elect several very good men. The road will be long and hard,  but, as the official opposition, they will have to travel it with  courage and fortitude.  The Liberals led by their new leader, Pat McGeer, took their  lumps. Being the party of the middle, the party of compromise,  they could not do well where emotion rather than intellect was  often the motivating force behind the ballot.  It is unfortunate that through a somewhat ephemeral fear of  socialism, some Liberals voted for Social Credit. This was neither  wise nor admirable. They, however, retained a considerable percentage of the popular vote and five of the six excellent men they  had in the house were re-elected.  Theirs will be a difficult, important, and thankless job; to tell  the truth as they see it, to fight for good legislation under difficult  circumstances, and eventually to furnish a sound alternative to  Social Credit and N.D.P. Good luck to them. ��� Jules A. Mainil.  Long-delayed move  Canada Standard Sizes for children's clothing as announced by  Consumer and Corporate Affairs Minister Ron Basford in Ottawa  means that such clothing carrying the CSS label is sized according  to "body measurement rather than the age of the child.  The matter of manufacturers' sizes for children's clothing has  been a long-standing affair with mothers continually hoping that  something could be done to regulate the output of manufacturers'  sizes so that they could shop with much more certainty of getting  a fit.  During the Second World War from 1939 to 1945 when civilian  forces of the country were partially organized by departments of  the Wartime Prices and Trade Board, Kate Aatken had the job of  touring the country to help women make the most of the apparel  they had, both children's and adults'. It was at that time that officials became distinctly aware that mothers were none too happy  oyer the varied sizes that were offered for sale by clothing manufacturers.  As nothing could be done then the problem was sluffed off  while the nation cleaned up after the war ended. Latterly the Consumers' Association of Canada has pressed the government for action. As a result the children's sizing standard, based on body measurements, was developed by a government specifications board,  which includes manufacturers, retailers, consumers and government officials.  , As a result of this action Minister Ron Basford announces that  the establishment of standards in other commodities is receiving  close attention. The Coast News realizing the interest which would  be shown by most mothers in the community, published the new  standards of sizes for both boys and girls clothing. This set of  standards is something which has been needed badly. Now let's  see how it will work.  The serious shortage of money  for capital projects needed in  cities, towns and villages  throughout British Columbia will  come under fire when mayors  and aldermen from all parts of  the province meet next month.  They will debate such potential solutions as asking the government to form a marketing  authority to sell municipal and  regional district bonds, and to  back it with provincial guarantees.  The request is contained in  one of several resolutions that  seek solutions to the critical  shortage of money for municipal capital purposes, which will  be debated at the 66th annual  convention of the Union of B.C.  Municipalities. A record attendance of close to 1,300 is expected for the conference Sept. 17-19  in Kamloops.  The municipal bond market is  at a standstill, one resolution  notes, and a solution is expected to be hotly demanded by delegates to the convention.  Municipal Affairs Minister  Dan campfhell is scheduled to  face the municipal and regional representatives during the  convention and to give a major  address Sept. 17.  Backing the call for a marketing authority are the councils  of Victoria, Ladysmith, Quesnel  Castlegar, Gibsons, and the Corn ox-Strathcona Regional District. Their demand is endorsed,  by the Association of Vancouver Island Municipalities, the  Association   of   Kootenay   and  Boundary vMunicipalities, . and  the North (Central B.C. Municipal Association. Their resolution  stresses that it has become difficult and in many cases impossible for municipalities to finance urgently required projects.  This has created an increasing  backlog��� totalling $80 to $100  million by most estimates ��� of  voter-authorized but unsold debentures. As a result hundreds  of projects required by resir  dents have been held up through  out B.C.  The resolution states that it is  unrealistic for the regional districts to act as municipal marketing authorities (which the  municipal affairs department  has suggested) because this  would result in 29 marketing  authorities competing against  each other for capital funds in  a common money market.  Authors of the resolution note  that the Alberta Municipal Financing Corp. has operated successfully for 12 years and a similar authority was established  recently in Saskatchewan.  A provincial municipal financing authority to market municipal debenture requirements,  which would in all cases carry  the guarantee of the province of  B.C., for capital projects approved by the department,  would be in a position to attract  buyers from the main financial  centres of Canada and the U.S..,  and could make these securities  readily available to B.C. residents, the resolution says.  Supplementary    r e s o lutions  from the Capital Regional District (Victoria) and the Kootenay . and Boundary Association  call for specific legislation.  Securities issued by regional  districts, Victoria noted, do' not  qualify for provincial guarantees. Therefore investments by  the municipal superannuation  fund are limited to federal or  provincial securities.  But because provincial authorities admit that regional dis^  tricts should command equal  rating with provinciality guaranteed   securities,   the   resolution  asks for amendments to permit  investment in ^regional district  securities by both the municipal  and B.C. civil- service pension  funds.  The Kootenay-Boundary resolution noted that chartered  banks have refused to grant interim loans unless guaranteed  that the bonds will be marketed  within one year. But the department refuses permission for  money bylaw votes unless guarantee of interim financing is  produced. Therefore the resolution asks the government to allow credit unions to enter into  loan agreements with municipalities ��� a procedure hitherto  banned in B.C.  N.

GET ONE WHILE THEY UST A N D V  C A P P  The Mexican  of life  This ;is the first in a series  of articles to be published  from notes Mr. Daly Is taking <pn his travels in Mexico,  Central and South America.  Mr. Daly Is a former resident of Pender Harbour and  attended school in that area.  JUAREZ: Waiting in line at the  Mexican customs here, I'm put  in mind of something a i|iend  once wrote me, "You sense a  slowdown in the pace of life as  soon as your foot touches Mexican soil."  With a lineup long enough to  panic the steadiest customs official1 back in Blaine, this Mexican dawdles over our baggage  as if there Were no end of time,  casually winding twine around  some parcels he judges not secure enough to stand the ride  ahead.  There is another side to his  nature, though, as I have this  misfortune to discover.

What  he has no way of knowing is  that I have been Quite conscientious about learning Spanish  over the last winter, and it is  only timidness and the spectacle  of other tourists casually butchering pronounciations that  keep me from venturing forth  at this point. I wedge in as many  "sis" and "gracias" as I can  during the remainder of the inspection.  My next stop is Chihuahua,  after a gruelling bus ride over  the desert of Northern Chihuahua state. We have a good new  bus, by Mexican standards at  least, but the road is releritles-J-  ly bumpy. There is nothing to  eat but chili sandwiches and  Pepsi. There 'is a smell of car  sickness hanging over the aisle  and the floor of the W.C. is  awash with misses. It is a real  test of intestinal fortitude.  CHIH-UAHUA: I found a reasonable hotel here,, the Avenida,1  for $4. $6 is considered expensive. Got little sleep though,  due to the incredible noise from  the street below my window.  Honking, revving engines', backfiring, shouting ��� it was as if  all restrictions on noise had  suddenly been lifted.  Yesterday, doing the sights, I  dropped in on the local Universe-  dad, a small campus of 600 students currently out on holidays.  As I was crossing the grounds  I noticed a large, stalky Mexican in tan fatigues waiting for  me to approach.  He proved very friendly, and  seemed anxious to help me, but  spoke no English, so we had to  go on my groping Spanish and  sign language. He was a watchman, it turned out, very curious about me, but I had to  strain every faculty to decipher  his questions. I managed to explain that I was a Canadian  from Vancouver, British Columbia (Pender Harbour is diftfi-  cult enough to explain in Eng-  lish!) while I found he lived in  You're Not  Behind the  T Ball  When You Place  Your Ad  !

"Do you dance?" he asked as  we were coming to the end of  my tour. He wriggled his body.  "Want to see some chicas a  go-go?"  "Si, es bueno," I said. I was  determined to make my study  of the Mexican culture as thorough as possible. So we arranged to meet later and do the town  Turning my steps back in the  Coast __ews, Sept. 3, 1969.       3  direction of the hotel, I visualized the bulging sack of dirty  clothes waiting in the corner of  my room and decided to find  some soap and get them off my  conscience.  After making a few enquiries,  I found myself in the indoor  market; a great rambling building beside the cathedral near  the centre of town.  It  was very dark,  the  main  lighting falling in dusty beams  from   skylights   high   overhead.  Orangey electric bulbs dangled  crookedly   over   some   of   the  stalls,   which   were   high   and  loaded   with   shrivelled,    dusty  looking   vegetables   and   fruits.  ���At a meat stall, the cuts were  black  with  flies,   which  would  rise  up  as the clerk picked  a  piece  up to  show a  customer,  then settle   again when he replaced it. Over everything was  a vague smell of the barnyard.  I eventually found my soap in  a  separate shop,  together with  prepared  foods,   liquor,   magazines   and  clothing.   As  I  was  picking out an 80c bottle of wine  a mop-headed little boy thrust  under my elbow and struggled  back with two bottles he could  barely carry.  Back outside in the painfully  bright sunlight, I looked up and  gleaming above me was the  white and gold spire of the cathedral. The church is ubiquitous down, here. Looking it over  inside, I tried to cut through a  lineup before confessional, to  have, a little girl fiercely mutter  the equivalent of "Get to the  end of the line and wait your  turn." So I again bent my steps  homeward, hoping the water  would be on.  (To be Continued)  REMEMBER THIS? Flashback when it looked like this.

Can I draw Unemployment  Insurance benefits while attending university?  A. First of all you must have  sufficient contributions to your  credit to establish a benefit  period. Then you must be ready,  willing and able to work at!  hours when you might reasonably expect to find employment,  and in a type of work in which  there are employment opportunities.  Q. I am working for my father who operates a hairdressing establishment. Eight hours  a day, four days a week I do  ladies' hair. Am I entitled to  pay unemployment insurance  contributions?  A.. Yes, you are entitled to  pay unemployment insurance  contributions. A regulation stipulates that the employment of  every person who provides any  of the services that are normally provided, in a hairdressing  establishment is insurable. Such  employment may be employment by your father, self-employment or employment not  under contract of service. If  you were the owner or the operator of the hairdressing establishment, your employment  would not be insurable.  _      MAVERICK ��� FALCON ��� FAIRLANE ��� MUSTANG ��� T-BIRDS  CO  g  C  o  fa  i  o  '/'y PROFESSIONAL V.

Mr. Munro and Revenue Minister J-P Cote also jointly announced similar increases, in  Canada Pension Plan retirement  pensions, survivor's benefits and  contributions effective next year  Cheques issued in January will  reflect these increases.  This action will follow a two  percent increase in the pension  index, the maximum allowed by  legislation, from 113.7 for 1969  to 116.0 for 1970. The pension index reflects increases in the  consumer price index which  beginning in January, 1969, was  converted to a 1961 time base  from the previous 1949 time  base. .  The    maximum    monthly  amount   of   the   combined   Old  Age Security pension and guaranteed   income   supplement   in  1970  will  be   $111.41,   up from  $109.20.   The  OAS pension  will  rise from $78 to $79.5ft monthly.  More than  1,600,000  Canadians  will   benefit,    including    those  whose  pensions   will  begin   in  January when the eligible age  will drop to 65 years. In addition,   780,000  old   age   security  pensioners will benefit. from' an  increase in the guaranteed income   supplement.   The   maximum   GIS   payment   will   rise  from $31.20 to the 1970 rate of  $31.83.  Mr. Cote said maximum annual pensionable earnings under  the Canada Pension plan will  reach $5,300 in 1970, up from  the 1969 figure of $5,200. He also  pointed out maximum yearly  contributions by employers and  employees will rise to :a new  figure of $84.60 each; The 1969  rate was $82,20. For self-employed persons, the new maximum  will be $169.20. It was $165.60  this year.  Mr. Munro said all retirement pensions under the Canada Pension Plan in payment in  December, 1969, will be increased by two percent in 1970. With  the increase in the year's maximum pensionable earnings), retirement pensions which become  payable for the first time in 1970  will be slightly higher than those  in 1969. On the basis of the new  ceiling of $5,300, the maximum  rate of full retirement pensions  first payable in 1976, will rise  to $110.42 monthly from the  present $108.33.  In  January,   1970,   survivor's  benefits in payment in December, 1969, will increase by two  percent.  Orphan's benefits and  the flat-rate components of pensions  to  widows  and  disabled  widowers   will   increase   from  $26.01 to $26.53 a month. At the  end  of  1969,   Mr.   Munro   estimated, more than 140,000 Cana-  idans would be receiving monthly retirement pensions and survivor's benefits under the Canada Pension Plan.  The maximum death benefit  payable under the Plan, for  deaths in 1970, will be $530.  There are 56 native species of  freshwater fishes in British Columbia, many of which can be  seen at the Vancouver Public  Aquarium.  jonrawuumranumrammnuiimiuuuminuumiuumwmmh.  Photostats  ��� TAX PAPERS  ��� LETTERS  ��� MEDICAL CERTIFICATES  ��� LEGAL DOCUMENTS  and other required papers  Copyright applied foi  "One law for the rich and one  for the poor"? One frequently  reads articles on this theme  now-a-days. We think, in general, this is not true ��� although  there is a grain of truth in it.  Firstly most legal claims are  for less than $500. Anyone can  sue in small debts court himself without a lawyer and where  indeed a lawyer is not only unnecessary, but undesirable.  Quite aside from the fact that  it is not worth while to hire a  lawyer for claims of this size,  the procedure is non-technical,  the documents do not have to  be worded in any particular way  and the magistrate does not  have to adhere to the strict  rules observed in the higher  courts.  Adjournments are easily obtained, the procedure is greatly  simplified and justice swift. The  court staff is most helpful to the  public and in fact, prepare the  summonses themselves. In any  event, if either party, 'after a  small debts court trial feels  they have not received a just decision due to the simplified nontechnical nature of the proceedings (or for any reason) they  may appeal to the next highest  court (County court) where "the  appeal is by way of a new trial  ��� which is a form of appeal  not available in any other appeal court.  What if a person hasn't time  to go to small debts court, or  does not want to be bothered?  They may engage a collection  agency who will attempt to collect the debt and sue for them  in small debts court. Again no  lawyer is necessary or desirable��� in the collection of small  accounts. Indeed it is difficult  to find a lawyer who handles  collections or small debts court  work. The collection agency  charges nothing if they do not  collect the debt. If they are successful, they charge a fraction  of what they collect, anywhere  from a fifth to one half ��� usually one-third ��� depiending on  thecircumstances.  In the higher courts a lawyer  is   practically   a   necessity   although a person can handle his  own case if he wishes and will  receive a courteous and sympathetic hearing. _3f however, one  is without funds to hire a lawyer one can easily obtain free  legal aid. Contact the law society or telephone your local Bar  Association ��� or ask any lawyer  for details on how and where to  apply. The legal aid organization will  provide  a lawyer to  give  legal  advice  or pass the  case on to a lawyer who will  handle  it   (including the trial)  without a fee.  What about criminal matters?  Again legal aid' is readily available if the person charged is  without funds. The seriousness  of the charge has no bearing.  Numerous eminent lawyers who  ordinarily charge; large fees for  their services often take the  most complicated and serious  criminal cases (including murder) with no fee or a very small  fee paid by the legal aid organization.  What about civil cases where  the small man is up against a  wealthy,   powerful "opponent ���  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  say an insurance company in a  car accident case, a large corporation in a breach of contract  case, or a trade union in a labor  dispute. If the little guy has a  small income and few assets but  does not qualify for legal aid he  may indeed have some difficulty  Most persons can finance the  trial, but if they are successful  the decision may be' appealed to  the appeal court or even to the  highest .court, the Supreme  Court of Canada ��� or tooth. If  the case is well founded, one  would ordinarily have little difficulty finding a lawyer to act  ��� at least at the trial level.  If at the level of the ap��peal  courts one cannot obtain a lawyer the court must still consider  the merits of the appeal, that'is,  a judgment in favor of the party  appealing is not automatic. Of  course, no man-made institution  is perfect, but our system of justice has evolved1 in its present  form to protect all parties. Perhaps in the future a further  evolution will produce a still  more equitable system.

Latest report  Sun Derby results pointed to  a lower than normal abundance  of heavy chinooks. Usually several fish on the prize list are in  the 304b. class but the best effort in this year's contest was a  29 pounder. Judging from the  locations where fish were hooked, Fraser River chinooks figured heavily, if not entirely,  among the winners while Squa-  mish-toound fish, usually avail-  ��� able in upper Howe Sound waters, were notably missing from  the picture.  Looking at non-Derby fishing  results, scene of the best action  last week was the Salmon Rock  vicinity where many limit catches of cohoes from 4 to 11 lbs.  were taken. Located close by,  and rated next most productive  for cohoes were Gower Point  and Gibsons Gap.  Watch out for those suicide-  prone young coho grilse! Waters  off the south Bowen Island shore  the Point Grey Bell Buoy and  the North Arm Jetty are loaded with these sub-legal sized  fish. Trolled bucktails and small  spoons are proving to be dynamite. ,  Rough marine weather kept  the fleet ashore most of the  week making it difficult to get  a reading on the salmon potential in the northern section of  the Sunshine Coast. Sheltered  waters of Thulin Passage and  Okeover Arm received some effort but produced very few fish.  Boats have all but abandoned  Toba Inlet. The only noteworthy  From the Federal Dept. of  Fisheries, Vancouver  catch in this general area was  an 18 lb. chinook at Sarah Point  Coho fishing at,exposed Grant  and Mystery Reefs below Savary Island was .almost nil due to  the weather. Scotch Fir Point  yielded a few fish on Saturday.  Eight boats checked afloat here  reported a total catch of 5 cohoes from 6 to 8 lbs. and 11  grilse to 2 lbs. Egmont remains  slow.  In Sechelt Inlet, a few fish  were taken Sunday evening in  the vicinity of Porpoise Bay.  Four of 12 boats checked afloat  had salmon aboard, 2 chinooks  of 19 and 18 lbs., 2 cohoes and  2 coho grilse.  Weather permitting, cohoes  and chinooks in the 12-15 lb.  size range were available at  Quarry Bay and at Bjerre Shoal.  A few limits were reported' at  Quarry Bay. Ten boats were  afloat Saturday morning at these  locations. All had fish and me  catch totalled 2 chinooks of 14  and 15 lbs., and 18 cohoes averaging 6 lbs. -  Last Wednesday, Dr. Hassen  of West Vancouver ��� boated^ a 41  pound chinook at the Indian Is-V  land hole inside Pender Harbour  On Monday of the current week,  all nine boats checked afloat between Francis Point and Lee  Bay had fish aboard and their  catch included 6 chinooks from  6 to 12 lbs., 5 cohoes averaging  8 lbs. and 3 ling cod.  UIC problems  Q. For years I was what-was  called a casual employee with  a federal government department. I worked full time. Now  I am out of a job, and when  I asked the personnel officer  for my Unemployment Insurance book, so that I could claim  while looking for something else,  he told me I didn't have a book.  Does this mean I cannot claim?  I am sure they have regularly  docked contributions from my  pay.  A. Federal government employees covered by Unemployment Insurance do not normally receive books on separating,  but this does not mean contributions are not credited or that  a right to claim is prejudiced.  The fact is that the government, like an increasing number of private employers makes  bulk payments to the Unemployment Insurance Commission instead of buying stamps  and sticking them in individual  books.  There's no disadvantage to  the employees, and for the em  ployer it can mean a big saving of time and trouble. He  keeps contribution records which  he is obliged to make available.  On leaving' your insurable  government employment, you  have probably received, in a  handy folder which has been  designed to hold the documents  you need, a 'Bulk Contribution  Certificate' (Form UIC 443M).  You should mail this to your  UIC area office without delay.  In this case the government  department, or the Central Pay  Office, forwards a record of  your contributions to the UIC.  However some departments do  not use Form UIC 443M. They  prepare a statement of contributions which is given to the  separating employee.  So don't worry about the lack  of a book in your case, but do  make sure you contact the UIC  as instructed in the folder.  Of course if you were not in  government, service and your  employer has a book in your  name, that should be submitted  too.

Akrigg, (published by Discov- f��  ery Press, Vancouver. g  Reviewed by Jules A- Mainil.     %  This is an unusual book, diffi- _  cult to classify because it can j  be many things to many people. %  It is a first class reference book %  the research has been thorough (  as evidenced by the preface J  which is. in effect a bibliography J  to the book. In this matter I was |f  pleased to see Lester Peterson's %  The Gibsons Landing Story mentioned. The book is honest,  where the source or meaning of  a place name is uncertain it is  so stated.  It is more than a reference  book, it is a beautifully written,  historically sound and often amusing publication. It may be  sacrilegious to compare this  volume to a bowl of salted nuts  or a platter of good cheese, but  it affects the reader in the same  way. Starting slowly he will return to it time and again.  Finally, it is a poetic and at  times almost a musical book.  Nowhere in the world are more  beautiful and interesting place  names to be found than in British Columbia. Listen to some of  them. From the French '��� Tete  Jaune, Barriere, Lac La Hache,  Pouce Coupe. From the Anglo  Saxon, Buccaneer Bay, Cobble  Hill, Craigellachie, Gibsons  Landing, Horsethief Creek,  Tricking Horse Pass, Invermere  From the Spanish ��� Caamano  Sound, Esperanza Inlet, Gabri-  ola, Galiano and Juan de Fuca.  From the Indian ��� Chilcotin,  Clayoquot Sound, Illecillewaet  iliver, Osoyoos, Spallumcheen  and Similkameen. From the  Russian ��� Crestova (The City  of Christ).  It is a beautiful book. Discovery Press is to be commended  for doing an excellent job. Try  it. you will not read it like a  novel, but you will find yourself  enjoyably wandering through it  again and again.  !_?u\-inu\nmttM-MttnniMM  OPENING SEPT. 2nd  Lila's Salon  886-2980  NEW OWNERSHIP  IVY FIEDLER  LOIS MacLEAM  ^ttnumiHiHmtrA^^  NEW SAFETY CHAMPION  4 m NYLON TUBELESS  Reg. list $30,85 each  7.75 x 14 & 7.75 x 15  2 for $44,00  MS SHELL SESl��I���l  >������'^���v.mt*s ,,  TRUE-BLUE  ,    K-RATITSK-T  . r_   m. ,"*���~* *.-���������--  TMj idvirfimfMlb HtpuUithed or displayed by the Liquor ControlBoird or by tin Government of British Columb'u
