Word, from Vancouver .following the handing down of.the result of arbitration hearings involving - Sechelt Waterworks Ltd"  and the Sunshine Coast Regional  District board over,a price for  the water, system' has. resulted  in what was described as a com-  p'rdmise, falling "between the two  figures offered. - .'���'.���"���  A letter published in the Aug-  2*7 issue^of the Coast News signed i by ^J. G. Baillie, general  manager of Sechelt Waterworks  Ltd; is'reproduced with salient  facts only picked out as follows:  Negotiations between ther re^-  giohal 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.  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, 1969. 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^ land  th^:��?:rii:ost sigmfican^^ltem -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 .SecheltV  Waterworks by the parent com-;  pany. . ..\ :-r- ,  On April 30, we submitted an  offer to sell our fixed assets to:  the district for a price of $121,--  000. The district countered with-  an. offer of $60,000, which was  refused.  The regional district, through  their splicitor, presented us with -  an alleged expropriation notice  on June ,6, 1969, and advertised  same in local newspapers about  that time. They later informed  us the purported expropriation  had'taken effect on. July 2,-; 1969,:  and requested our co-operation  in turning over control of the  system and customer accounts  records to them. We have refused to do so, on. legal advice that  the alleged expropriation is null  and void, and that we are stilt  the true and lawful owners.  ���-..   Near the end of the Sechelt  Waterworks Ltd. letter appeared  the following  Not. only will there be expensive litigation and advertising  costs, but should the issue eventually go to arbitration, we will  claim an amount pf over $160,000  for" our physical assets. This is  based on a recent appraisal of  our system carried out for this  purpose by a reliable consulting  engineer, who has solid-substantiating records to back up fhis  valuation; We^ will alio claim  "���t>tBer'"costs" and" values ^liich  will push the total claim to a  much higher figure. This conditional notice of claim has already been filed with the regional  district.  Cress well shots on view  - The Arts Council's . Gallery  shop dn the Credit Union Building, Sechelf will open its 1970  season on Wednesday Jan. 14  with a display of photographs  by Mr. George Cresswell of  Granthams Landing.  Mr. and,Mrs. Cresswell have  Idved in Granthams for over 20  years and retired now for several years Mr^ Cresswell keeps  busy with a wide variety of interests including photography  and gardening for which he is  well known locally. Asked how  long lie has been interested in  photography, Mr. Cresswell replies that he can remember  that first pinhole camera he was  given at the age of 12 very,vividly.  The pictures chosen;, for Ibis  exhibition are' all black and  whites revealing Mr. Cresswells  interest in texture, depth and  feeling and his ability to use  his camera to produce a work  of art. Revealed too is the art  ists .eye for beauty in everyday  things and in ordinary places  which we might otherwise take  for granted. The show includes  many local studies of the Sunshine Coasts justly famed land  and sea scapes, including some  happy reminders of last years  snow.  The Camera has however been  farther afield and recorded the  poetry caught in cement: architectural forms at UBC. The grandeur of Yosemite can be contrasted with the grace of palms  along the Caribean coasts. This  display will be of interest not'  only to those who aspire to use  a camera for more than just a  record of personal events but .to-  all, those who appreciate poetry.,  rhythm, balance and proportion,  the component parts of any art  form.  The display will be mounted  until'Jan. 24 and the Gallery is  open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am. to 4 pm.  Swain names chairmen  Chairmen for seven committees were appointed at the inaugural meeting of Sechelt's  muncipal council Monday night  of Jast week.  Mayor William Swain and Aid.  Normart Watson were named to  the finance committee with Aid.  Harold Nelson taking public  works and fire, also the family  divisiori committee; Aid. Joe  Benner will be the delegate to  the regional board of health;  Aid. George Flay will look after  recreation, community service,  library board and Centennial '71  the airport management committee will have Aid.' Flay and  Benner;  Mayor Swain has turned over  to Aid. Watson the job of being  Sechelt director on the Regional  District, board with Aid. Benner  as his alternate.  During discussion on the provisional budget Aid. Watson suggested that in view of the possible closing down of the ambulance service from Cunningham's at Half moon Bay that  council should make a grant of  $500 to cover a service for the  people of Sechelt. A check will  be made before action is taken.  PARKING LIMITED  Arrangements were made by  Gibsons council at its last Meeting to limit parking at'ihe School  road side of the Harris block,  Gower Point road, to one hour  only to avoid all day parking in  that area. The region involved is  only from the front of the building, to the lane^ in rear of the  block. It will not; affect parking  higher up on'school road. ��  ou  Serving the Mt.

The financial vortex in which the provincial government finds  itself is increasing its worries. Failing to take into account- teacher  salary increases and inflation generally, because of its money  worries it has made the education department school financing look  as though it was formulated with the aid of a ouija board. With  teacher salary increases for 1970 rarely being below 7 percent and  inflation since 1969 surpassing a three percent figure, the 110 percent of last year's formula as a basis for the 1970 budget was far  less than a faint hope. This can be multiplied by adding the results  of several years inflation and the parsimonious attitude in doling  out necessary funds in a growing economy and increasing school  populations.  It seems so unusual that a government which has boasted of  splendid surpluses each year should find itself behind a great big  eight ball after close to 18 years in office. After having milked all  the Crown corporation funds at a low interest rate the premier  finds himself facing a money market that will not bend to suit  him. Because of this, hospitals, schools and municipalities along  with other sections of governmental operation are starved1 for the  . want of funds which rightly they should have.  It is also something of a shameful attitude, under such circumstances, to place municipal governments in the position of replacing the provincial government in school financing affairs, while  those same municipalities are keenly aware of the difficult situation in which they and school boards find themselves! It is a totally unfair proposition and the simplest way out would be for all  municipal governments to give the school boards approval on what  the provincial government describes as over-entitlement funds in  their budget.  If there were only one or two school boards in this position it  would not be serious but James Campbell, School Trustees Association president, has said that as the result of increases to teachers  salaries there are now 49 school boards above the financial limit  set by government formula. ':  in case readers are not acquainted with the government wrinkle  of placing blocks in front of school boards, the provincial government arranged that municipal councils had the right to approve  or reject budget over-entitlement. If the council rejected the application it would go. to public plebiscite. This is usually fatal and  last year's.experience;proved it: Only two^of nine such referenda  were given a favorable public vote.  School boards have been between the devil and the deep blue  sea for a good number of years, too many for them to look back  on with pleasure. Why an important segment of our social life  should ibe placed in such an, unnecessary situation is worth investigating.  An example of the situation a school board finds itself in under!  the present government formula, arises when the school board arranges its budget and finds that when teacher demands for increased salaries become a fact, their budget is immediately out of  line. For instance the school board for this district having based  its budget on the 110 percent formula now finds it will have to have  $77,034 more in order to comply with teacher increases plus other  inflationary increases. In larger districts the sum is greater. What  kind of departmental foresight is this?  Still further, the basis of new school construction is on present costs but it takes maybe up to three years before contractors  can start building. In the meantime inflation has increased all costs.  Builders find it necessary to allow for Unknown wage increases,  thus adding to costs.  With the minister of finance holding his fist tightly on the outgo of provincial funds departmental officials are left with steadily  increasing demands for necessary construction coupled with a  steadily decreasing outflow of necessary money.  Surely there must be a better way to handle the department of  education and its problems. They are not all wrapped up in that  nasty word inflation. With our booming economy and with yearly  governmental surpluses usage of the word affluence where education matters are concerned sounds like a hollow laugh up a very  empty sleeve. "'  (By. Clifford JFpwke,   editor, of  the  Canadian  Builder) C  The adoption of the National  Building code by all municipalities in Canadaisr one of the  most worthwhile objectives for  the. entire construction industry.  A truly national building  code would replace the; chaotic situation created by oour  present- multiplicity of building by-laws with a uniform pat  tern of requirements across  the country. This would have  the ultimate advantage of reducing building costs generally and housing costs in particular. It would certainly result in greater efficiency, for  the building industry, arid the  introduction of ne.w techniques  and materials could' be significant and far reaching in their  effects.  It is a fact that every professional and trade association  in our consruction industry advocates the general adopjtdon  of NBC���architects, engineers,  contractors; homebuilders and  manufacturers. But, as a refutation of any suggestion that  their desires are selfish or profit-motivated, it is also a fact  that support for their attitude  is forthcoming from other ribn-  industry bodies like the Association of Canadian Fire Marshals, the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs, the Canadian Federation of Mayors, and  Municipalities, the 'Canadian  Manufacturers Association, the  Canadian Underwriters* Association and many provincial  associations of building officials.  The first version of the National Building Code was produced around 1941 under the  patronage���but in no way under the control���of the division of building research, National Research council. Under  the supervision of DBR's Director, Dr. R.F. Legget/ the  division provided staff and  knowledge to organize the  associate committee of the  National! Building Code> uthe..  official sponsor and publisher  of the code. It was the associate committee which arranged  and planned the mammoth job  of providing a set of building  by-laws, adjusted and adaptable to all climatic conditions  in Canada.  However, the significant factor behind the drawing up of  this code is that the work has  been done by a. series of voluntary  committees,  comprising  technical experts from every  field of constructibriy and pro  viding a wealthx of brain power  and knowledge ��� .that., no single  municipality, however large,  could hope   to   emulate.  Every few years, the National Building code has been reissued, often expanded, to meet  criticisms, proposed amendments, changing conditions.  These are changes which have  most often arisen from -comments and suggestions sent in  by users���designers, builders,"  manufaictuers, mwnlicipal offii-  ciails . and elected repre^enta:-  tives. It has now developed to  the point where it is the best  document of its kind in the  world, admired by every coun-  try: in the. Western World none  of which have a similar document). Unfiorfunatiely like the  prophet in his own land, the  building code is still unhonored  in Canada to a regrettable  degree.  On the face of it, though,  the National Building Code has  made outstanding progress. A  recent estimate is that 74 per  cent���_ of Canada's population  lives in" areas using the code in  whole or in part. But therein  lies the snag! The number of  municipalities which have adopted the code in its published  form without major amendment is relatively small. While  many more claim to have  building by laws based on one  or another version of the National Building Code, the fact  is that the majority of .these  have so modified the code on  their own responsibilities, and  pared  with the original.  This situation is showing up  now to a greater extent than  ever before as the building industry grows and the business  operations of designers, manufacturers and builders spread  not only over different municipal boundaries but across  provincial   boundaries.  It has been estimated that  the advantage in price , and  quality of a factory manufactured home are being denied  to 70 percent'.- of the population  in Canada because of the variety  of   building by-laws.  This however, is only one  side of the story. The multiplicity of building by laws affects the production of all kinds  of building maiterials���wood  products, steel, concrete, etc.  It also affects drastically the  end prices of many homes and  other buildings in one area as  against another. Here \ are  some   examples:  COAST NEWS  5-10-20  FIVE   YEARS   AGO  B.C. Hydro records show  131 new homes built on the  Sunshine . Coast in 1964 valued  at $1,088,450 plus $5,730,500  commercial construction. Port  Mellon's pulp mill provided  $5,000,000.  Forecasts of the school  board 1965 budget were that  it would pass the $1,000,000  mark  for  the  first time.  Because Canadian Forests  Products expected the company would eventually require  use of the land on which a  school was now operating the  school board has decided to  seek another location.  10   YEARS   AGO  H.B. Gordon Agencies, real  estate and insurance, Sechelt  announced the opening of. a  branch office in Gibsons.  William Allan, who planted  the chestnut trees on the  grounds of Sechelt's cenotaph  died at the age of 80.  As a result of . numerous  brawls at dances in the area  Magistrate Andy Johnson decided to jail1 such disturbers of  the peace without option of  a fine.  Dick McKibbin, chairman of  the Library board announced  that plans were under way - to  increase library book space to  6,000 books. Present number is  about   2,700.  15  YEARS AGO  First action towards moving  the hospital to Gibsons area  came when a board of trade  committee was organized to  correlate all other efforts with  that of the board.  More   than   100   persons   at  tended . a meeting at Pender-  Harbor and incorporated St.  Mary's Hospital under the Societies   act.  A plebiscite for the sale of  liquor in the unorganized territory of Mackenzie riding is  forecast. If organized municipalities want a vote on it they  must apply for the same.  Chief Charlie Craigan was  elected to head the Sechelt  Band at an election on the reserve.  20 YEARS  AGO  Cost of electricity in the area has been the subject of a  complaint by Gibsons Board  of Trade plus power promises  that so far have not been kept.  Sechelt Board of Trade has  protested a proposed increase  in) water rates by Union Estates Ltd., maintaining they  are out of proportion to rates  elsewhere.  Gibsons' concerns using vpow-  er report the voltage is too  low to operate some machinery they  use.  R. Haekett, Sechelt's weather observer reports' that for  December 5.55 inches of rain  fell plus six inches of  snow.  with   insufflent   facillities,   that  it is unrecognizable when com-  In a recent survey by Toronto Metropolitan Home Builders  Association, it was established  that a house in the Borough  of Scarborough costs around  $500 more than a house of similar design and size and quality in adjoining Markham  Township because of the more  stringent regulations in the  former   municipality... ���;.-,  An architect found that the  cost 'of thev same industrial  building erected in three different municipalities varied by  10 and 20 percent according to  the requirements of the different  by   laws.  A school built in one municipality was at least 50 percent dearer than a similar  school built in a neighboring  municipality and a major part  of that increased cost was due  to the excessive requirements  laid down by local by laws.  The code; is largely a performance   code     which   means  that, rather than specifying  what particular product should  be used, it sets the standards  of performance that any material must achieve before it  can be used. This opens the  door for the use of/new and  more efficient materials in a  way that most existing local  by-laws do not.  The second '���*- advantage is  that the National Building Code  is being conistantjly reviewed  in the light of local needs,  changing requirements and lessons learned from its application. The trouble in that many municipalities are not  ���aware of the fact that they can  ' submit their amendments for  consideration, or simply do not  toother: to do so. No one suggests that the National Building Code is a perfect do cument  that meets all requirements in  the best possible way. But. it  is the best we have and does  point the road out of the present chaoftic situaltttkMii.���-From  the   Plywood  World   Quarterly.  N.

USE THE COAST NEWS  WHEN YOU ADVERTISE How about a Fondue pot in your home?  Coast News, Jan. 14, 1970.       3  Who started the fondue fad?"  Possibly vacationers returning from a holiday in Switzerland, the home of the fondue pot. The word fondue  comes from the French verb,  fondre (phone/dre), meaning to melt, and a true fondue  is a  melted  dish,   or a dunk.  Fondues    were    originally   a  product   of   necessity.    Cheese.  and bread, which formed the  staple diet of the Swiss country folk were made in great  batches,   then   stored  for  long  .intervals. Naturally both became hard. The bread had to  be dunked to soften it. As for  the cheese, It was found that  when      melted and    .flavored  . with wine, it made an excellent  dunk  for the  bread.  >!���  I  GET YOURS NOW  BEFORE PRICES RISE  COAST NEWS  GBhom^ Ph. 886-2622  nc^jt  ���*        -.  :j  THE SPORTY jumpsuit for leisure wear in a soft all-cotton velour.

It is commonly' served  from a round, ear.then.waTe  pot. This ds placed over a fondue warmer in the center of  the. table. Long-handled fondue forks are used lo spear  cubes : of crusty French or Italian bread for dunking. Each  person at the table, in turn,  dunks his bread ini the fondue  and stirs until his neighbor  takes over.  There are many recipes for  basic cheese; fondue and the  choice of cheese is of geatest  importance. If you don't have  a good recipe, buy canned  fondue. It has delicious flavor and comes in cans of different size. As for the dunk, it  need" not always be bread:  Cooked seafoods such as  shrimp and scallops, also  chunks of lobster and. crab,  make excellent dunks. You  will find that the guests heartily approve of this  innovation.  Fondue Bourguignonne is a  different type of dish. Strictly  speaking it is not a fondue  since --nothing melts. Neither  is it "Bourguigworine" since  it does not contain red wine,  nor does it come from Burgun*  dy. Simply described, each  guest spears chunks of raw  fish or" meat with a fondue  fork or wooden fondue skewer  and cooks them singly in bubbling hot ; oil in a metal fori^  due pot. Before being eaten,  each cooked morsel) is trans-;  ferred to a, dinner fork, seasoned, then dipped in a tasty  sauce or sprinkled with lemon.  Fish and shellfish .cook quickly, making them an excellent  choice for this dish. Especially  recommended   are  firm-fleshed  .   varieties-such as salmon,  halibut,        pickerel,     < Jswordfish,  ���about Vz pound of ^edible, raw  shrimp, and scallops. Count on  seafood for each  serving.  To prepare the fish, cut fillets orv'steaks into, 3A- inch  Cubes, discarding any skin or  bones. If serving, shrimp, peel  ; and de-vein them. If serving  scallops, rinse them well under  running water to remove any  grit, then drain and pat dry.  Scallops . larger than bite-size  should be cut in halves. Arrange the prepared -fish and  shellfish on a serving tray.  Cover with plaa|tfLc film and  refrigerate until cooking time.  Shortly before the meal,  half-fill the fondue pot with  salad oil. Heat the oil until  very hOt-r^but riot smoking���  on the kitchen f stove, then  transfer the pot to its heating  unit on the table. Around it  place salt and pepper shakers,  bowls containing several different sauces, and a bowl containing lemon wedges; The  choice of v sauces is limitless.  Some suggestions are: seafood  cocktail slauce, tartar sauce;  mustard or curry mayonaise  and caper butter. -     ..'.  See that each guest has a  plate for the raw ^seafoods of  his choice and a sectioned fondue  plate-for   the  sauces. He  - will also need a fondue fork,  dinner fork, and napkin.

Letters to editor  /Editor: It was my pleasure  Sunday, Jan. 4, to witness the  nicest little piece of diplomacy  that anyone could wish to see  displayed anywhere and it happened right here on our Sunshine  Coast. The occasion���a report by  a group of irate people whose  water supply had been contaminated by mud etc., in the creek  supplying them.  The result���a visit to the property of the offender by two  members of the Regional District  and myself, an invited observer.  The dffenee-T-the man had been  doing some clearing on his land  through which a creek ran. Some  of the logs had been dragged  through the creek, making a  shambles of the area and the  creek. He admitted that he  thought that as the creek went  through his property he had the  right to go through it.  The outcome���an explanation  of the law as it applies in such  cases by the Regional District"  representative in a quiet reasonable way and a promise by the  property owner that all work  would be stopped on the far side  of the creek and that the creek  and it banks would be cleaned  up to prevent further trouble.  Credit for the way this affair  was managed must go to the  two men who handled the situation in such a cool and diplomatic fashion. When the residents of  this area have men like these  working for them, they don't  have too much to worry about.  There are occasions when a little criticism is warranted but  when credit is due, it should be  given freely. J. Hind-Smith, Secretary, Sunshine Coast Environment Protection Society.

Almost every major film company sought the property, but  it remained for Warner Bros.  Seven Arts to complete the deal  that now brings the joyous musical to the screen in flPanavds-  ion and Technicolor to the Twilight Theatre Thurs. to Sun.  The original , stage cast  starred Albert Sharpe as Fini-  an, a roguish Irishman with  grand plans'for a stolen pot of  .irig'" ��� daughter, Sharon; David  Wayne as Og, a leprechaun:in  the process of becoming mortal;  gold; Ella Logan as his trust-  Donald Richards as Woody, a  guitar toting dreamer, and Anita Alvarez as^ the spritely  mute, Susan the Silent.

I was one of three boys from  Gibsons who attended the 39th  session of the Older Boys Parliament of British Columbia. There  were approximately 70 young  men from all over the province  in Victoria for the 39th sitting.  The many friendships made at  the sessions will last for many  years.  But the OBP of B.C. is more  than, a friendly gathering. The  members took-an oath to strive  for the betterment of British Columbia's young people, to provide less fortunate children with  an opportunity to do things the  average child can do.  One of the projects planned  for 1970 is the organizing of social evenings for boys at the  House of -Concord, a home for  unfortunate boys. The OPB  members, mostly from Vancouver will organize activities for  these boys, such as ibaskeball,  floor hockey and films.  Another major project to be  carried out by OPB members  is a summer camp of one week  for 50 under-priviledged\ children. Children for this camp  are selected fby' the OPB cabinet and senate with the co-operation of the social welfare  branch. t  The other major project for  this year is a food drive. The  aim of this food drive is to collect good usable food for the  less fortunate people in the pror  vince.  The OPB is a youth organization. It is sponsored by  churches and community minded individuals. It receives no  grants from the government so  therefore must raise all money  to be used in the carrying out of  its goals and projects.  Department of Lands, Forests  and Water Resources  Water-Resources Service  Pollution Control Branch ;���/  APPLICATION FOR A PERMIT  UNDER THE POLLUTION  CONTROL ACT, 1967  I, Village-of Gibsons of Gibsons, British Columbia, P.O.

The land upon which the effluent originates is Village of  Gibsons.  The quantity of effluent to be  discharged is as follows:���  Maximum rate 0.89 C.F.S., 333  Imp. gal. p. min.  Maximum   12-hour   discharge  "240,000 Imperial gallons. Average   24  hour discharge  180,000  Imperial gallons.  The operating season during  which the effluent will be discharged is continuous.

The type of treatment to be  applied to the waste before discharge is as follows: grit removal, comminution, oxidation  by activated sludge process,  sedimentation, effluent disinfection and sludge drying beds.  I, David Johnston, Clerk-  Treasurer, Village of Gibsons,  hereby certify that this application does not conflict with the  local by-laws of Village of Gibsons.  This application dated on the  30 day of December, 1969, was  posted on the ground in accordance with the Pollution Control Regulations.  (Signed) D; Johnston,  Municipal Clerk  This application is to be filed  with the Director of Pollution  Control, Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, British Columbia. Any  person whose rights would be  affected in accordance with the  act may, within 30 days of the  date of the application, or within 30 days of publication in The  British. Columbia Gazette or in  a newspaper, or, where service  is required, within 30 days of.  the serving of a copy of the application, file with the Director  an objection in writing to the  granting of a permit stating how  he is affected.  This year the estimated cost  of this season's projects is about  $4,000.  To ensure that this money is  raised, the OPB government  put through an act which states  that if a member wishes to return to parliament the following  year he must sell $30 worth of  bonds, seE means collect and  the bonds are tax deductable  which states you have donated  to the OPB for the carrying out  of projects. All members from  Gibsons want to go back next  December.  Those desiring more information about the Oider Boys Parliament are asked to contact  Wolfgang Buchhorn at 886-7050,  Roland Kerbis at 886-9812 or  Don Smith at 886-7460.  (By Wolfgang Buchhorn)  The Older Boys Parliament of  British Colubia is an organization for young men throughout  B.C. Their aim may be summed  up by their motto youth serving  youth. With this aim in mind the  Older Boys Parliament serves  the youth in this province  through various projects, providing comradship and training  in leadership.  For their efforts parliamentarians receive an education in  citizenship, ..parliamentary .procedure, social responsibility,  and youth oranization, as well  as a firm background in public  speaking.  The 39th session, which three  boys from Gibsons attended over the Christmas holidays  proved to be an enjoyable and  thoroughly rewarding occasion.  The parliamentarians were billeted at the Canadian Forces  Base at Esquimalt  Among the highlights of the  five day trip to Victoria was the  'banquet with the Lieutenant-  Governor, at Government house.  This proved' a delightful experience which will be remembered. The whole trip was highly educational and is one of the  events every Iboy between the  ages of 15 and 21 should attend.  Special thanks should go to the  DeMolay Mothers Circle and  the U.C.W. for sponsoring the  trip.  :  Every Success to  Flowerlaine Florists  from  HELEN'S FASHION SHOP  May you have good luck and continued success-  Flowerlaine Florists  from  COAST INN  Welcome to Seaside Plaza  Flowerlaine Florists  May continued good fortune be yours  FABRIC HOUSE  ^oojek ^Point <zzfi^oa.<l, <^ifj��on&  ZP&onz 886-2325  <&k  Opening Tuesday, Jan. 13  <��  &  yh?a  *����������'  SfJP  DAFFODILS - 990 bunch ��� IRIS - 990 bunch  CACTUS PLANTS - 390 ea.

Point of law  (By a Practicing lawyer)  Q. Can you obtain a divorce  on grounds of three years separation if you are'living in the  same house as your husband?  My husband and I sleep in separate bedrooms and go our  own separate ways and, in fact,  hardly  speak to   one   another.  A. It is very doubtful if you  are, in the words of the divorce  act; living separate and apart.  A married couple may be living  separate and apart although  residing under the same roof  but this is very rare.  The cessation of intimate relations, in itself, is not sufficient. In one case the couple had  ceased intimate relations and  lived in separate rooms of the  same suite. They each did their  (Copyright)  own shopping, cooking, laundry,  etc. They were caretakers of  an apartment and to keep their  positions it was necessary to  maintain the appearance of husband and wife. The court granted the divorce holding that  there had been (as there must  be) a withdrawal from the matrimonial relations, as well ass  a physical separation.  We advise that you and your  husband each consult your own  lawyer and try and enter into  a separation agreement and live  entirely apart. In three years  one of you can sue the other  for a divorce���or perhaps one  of you will commit adultry before three years have passed  and, of course, this would be  sufficient grounds.

David Ganshorn  and Bernard F- Mulligan realized it was an experience Thursday night of last week when they  were introduced to school board  affairs at the Inaugural meet-  ting. '_;,_���'  ���   With Supt. R.R Hanna hi the  chair until a new chairman was  elected, he outlined the 'functions  of a trustee' and explained that  the rights of operation were with  the board, not a committee of  the board or individual members  His advice was to make no comment until the !facts had been  obtained and those facts should  be obtained from the board. The  ANDY  CAPP  flow of adhiiriistration must be  allowed to operate.. The chain  of command is essential from the  school board down.  Following his dissertation on  the duties..of,a trustee the reelection of Mrs. Sheila Kitson,  last year's chairman to the same  post /this year occurred with  Trustee Rev. Barry Jenks receiving the minority vote. Vice-  chainnahi will be Mrs. A. Labon-  te winning that post over Trustee William Malcolm.  With Mrs. Kitson in the,chair  Secretary-treasurer J.S. Metzler  outlined aspects of the financial  setup under which the board operated; giving the new members  a chance to ask questions. He  also advised the new trustees  that the provincial financial formula for schools was made up  to create confusion so he preferred not to go into too much  detail as it gets more and more  confusing as you go along.  An argument on policy making  came next with Mr. Hanna showing how policy resulted through  proposals being placed before the  board from school sources. Policy was made and then presented  to the board. Proposals were acceptable for disscussion and then  the board as a whole defines  what policy will be.  Mr. Metzler outlined the committee setup and from his long  experience fayored the one man  n e,  service comes  GLASS-ARTS, a division of Elphinstone Industries  Limited/ announces the absorption of Sun Glass  &  GLASS-ARTS will provide a complete glass service:  GLASS OF ALL TYPES  GLASS CUTTING  NEW INSTALLATIONS  CONTRACTING  MIRRORS  WINDOW REPAIRS  AWNINGS  PICTURE FRAMES  GLASS-ARTS will be able to supply glass and aluminum windows at Vancouver  prices.

At  that point Chairman Mrs. Kitson  asked that board members signify via a memo to .her what committee operation they thought  would be most suited for their  qualifications. This would give  her a chance to have the committee chairman chosen at the  next board meeting. .,    .  Mr. Metzler waved the proposed 1970 budget in his hand  and suggested the problem was  such that it would be better for  the board to hold a special budget meeting Jan: 22 when there  would be more time to delve  into the labryinth of figures. He  explained that as it .stood with  an excess over educational department limitations of about  $281,612 that the board would  have to go to Sechelt and Gibsons municipal councils for approval of the excess, as required  under the present finance formula as concocted by the minister  of education's department.  With that safely outlined the  board decided it would go into a  committee of the whole to discuss some problem in the hands  of Mr. Hanna, the superintendent... A cue for all except the  board members to leave the  room.  Cat's nine lives  are big help  On Dec. 31 the following advertisement was placed in the  Coast News: Tortoiseshell cat  named Moustache. White face  with black moustache and goatee, wearing flea collar. Lost at  Ferry     terminal    on    Friday.  Please phone Mrs. McQuary at  886-9982.  The cat vanished when the  McQuary car was hit by another  from the rear. It darted from  the car and efforts to find it  failed.  On Friday the, Coast News received a phone call from the  Salvation Army camp next to the  ferry terminal inquiring whether  this could be the missing cat.  The caller was told to phone Mrs*  McQuary. He did and now the  cat is happy in its normal home.  Missing since boxing day it  somehow managed to get into  the Salvation Army hall while  the door was open. It has apparently been in the hall for  many days as it was missing a  total of 21 days.

Letters to editor  Editor: I am writing concerning the deplorable condition of  our town park, which should foe  the-focal point of Gibsons as it  is the resting place of the founders of the gateway to the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Gibsons  B.C.  I am dismayed at the condition of this area, which over  the years has been transformed  from a poor excuse of a town  park, to a site where one may;  rest their backsides; this-being  a rest station or commonly  called 'toilet'.  If one is looking for ways to  improve the appearance of what  could be one of the most unique attractions of Gibsons,  which in turn could be a special B.C. Centennial project, I  would suggest that we immediately look at ways of improving  as well as developing this area.  I feel that if the citizens of  Gibsons would express themselves, they too would be in  agreement with the aforementioned. I look forward to reading your comments and support of this cause.  W.E.
