 SERVING   THE  GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 8862622  Volume 23  Number 3, January 21; 1970.  10c per copy  Chamber memberstresses  need for credit bureau  ABOUT 25 MEMBERS of the Boys Parliament visited Gibsons  United Church under the leadership of Rev. Jim Williamson, church  mm.ster. They discussed parliamentary affairs and spent most of  Saturday, in session. Above are shown Robin Richardson, premier;  ���Wolfga~ng Buchhprn, member for Gibsons; Andy Williamson, senate  chairman and Jim Mann, leader of the opposition.  Exploration of possibilities of  establishing a credit bureau in  this area was broatched at Mon  d|y night's dinner meeting of  Gibsons and Area Chamber of  Commerce at Cedars Inn. There  were about 45 present.  ��� /Frank Havey of Chess Enterprises Ltd. maintained that the  area needs such a 'bureau to  help   merchants   conduct   their  1business in a proper manner.  jy^embers of the chamber recounted for Mr. Harvey's benefit what had occurred in-the  past respecting a credit bureau.  The latest attempt,, Walt Ny-  gren said resulted in insufficient numbers becoming interested.' ..' ."'.' ��� ' ' .  iMr. Havey,'. following chamber  endorsement of the idea of establishing a credit bureau, was  named chairman of the committee which will look into possi-  bilites.  Other eommttee& named by  President Dick Blakeman were:  Membership," Ken Crosby; tourists, George McNichol; associated Chambers of Commerce  representative in liaison with  Sechelt, Audrey Hinz who is also chairman of- the merchants  committee; policy, Walt Nygren  and William Wright; "municipal  council, Mike Blaney; school  board/ Dave Parry; community committee, Frank Daugherty;  industrial development, Douglas  Fraser; official greeters, Mickys and Doris Parsey with Keith  and Dot .Wright as  alternates;  dinner ticket sales and attendance, Sharon Venechuk; finance  Winston Robinson, and pollution  Mrs. T.

Before the business meeting  started Ross Johnson of L & K  Lumber explained why his company had postponed a proposed  sawmill operation for this area  and a movie on What is a Chamber of Commerce, was shown in  which the position of chambers  and chamber members were  clearly .. outlined. One point  ���brought out was that a chamber can do collectively .what an  individual cannot do.  It was -announced that the  .president, Mayor Wally Peterson and George McNichol would  attend a tourism' meeting at Chil  Iiwack oh Feb. 6.  .Senior Citizens association  Branch; 69 first ;meeting of the  year inSechelt Legion hall, Jan.  15 opened with a minute of silence in! memory of, the late  D.G.

Mr. Johnson explained that  North Shore land on which L&K  operates is PGE Railway land  leased to Vancouver Wharves;  and subleased; to L&K,, Last  AUgust the company decided to  sj^i a nine year lease.  ijphe company has 212ernploy-.  ;~|||%witfr:a;;$2;5bp^000^payrbll^forr.  *I96Ss,' Mr;^ Johnson  pointed" out-  that >as; a   result   of  the nevir  lease it would hot be  fair to  suggest   that, any, large   indus  trial development by L&K in  Langdale area would be instigated prior to 1978.  'There . would be added improvements to the company's  sorting system in Twin Creeks  area close' to Port Mellon. The  company representative in the  area, is Doug. Gillett, booming  ground  superintendent. (  Mr. Johnson asked the Chamber to keep in close contact  with the company in order to  prevent any further crop of ru  mors from spreading.  Due to the uncertainty of-the  company's position on the  North Shore in 1964, it purchased Lot 1405 and in 1966  block B of, Lot 1398. These properties were purchased for two  main reasons, to establish a  Howe Sound sorting grounds  and to secure an alternative  Crown^ granted area" suitable for  a sawmill . site.

Arrangements have been  made by the auxiliary to have-  school pictures .taken, a prac-:  tice dropped for some years.  The auxiliary will assume the  responsibility of administration  for the pictures.  An auction" sale and tea is  planned fori March as a fund  raising project. Good quality  items such; as Melniac^dishes,  jewelry, towels, pnptted plants,  knick knacks and; garden tools  are expected to stimulate bidding at the auction.  ���'Some 23 members were present at the library on Monday  night when Mrs. E.

Individual; memberships will  be $7.50 with one vote; a business membership at $15 will al  low two votes and an industrial  membership at $30 will mean  three votes. Some opposition  was expressed but the members  at Monday night's5meeting*generally went along with the idea  and passed a motion supporting  ' it. The chamber hopes to widen  membership by inviting companies;! who do ipusiness here to join:  GARDEN  DAMAGE  Dr. Robin Harger of the Department of Zoology, University  of British' Columbia, Vancouver  8 would like to get in- touch  with anyone on the Sunshine  Coast whose garden was damaged by herbicides from" B.C.

VICE-PRESIDENT RESIGNS  Peter MouzaMs has announced  his resignation as vice-president  and head coach of Gibsons Athletic Association, and also from  his position as chief referee of  the District Soccer Association.  He gave as his reason for resigning the lack of support from  the general public for the work  the associations are doing. He  thanks everyone who has worked with him and wishes them  good luck in their endeavours.  price $)19f0m  While nothing official has been  announced about the arbitration  award affecting the Sechelt Waterworks Ltd. it is reportfyii to  be at or in the vicinity of $119,-  000.  The arbitration hearing resulted from the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board's expropriation of the system and  offering $60,000 as its price for  the system.. The waterworks  company countered with the  proposition that it was asking  $160,000 for it plus any outstanding liabilities which, would  be included in the price. ;  As a result of this disagree-'  ment arbitration hearings were!  held in December ending in an  award which was termed as a  compromise, slicing between the  . two figures. ; The matter will  come before the Regional board  meeting on Jan; 30.    f  23firecalis  During 1969 Gibsons V.F.D-  answered a total of 23 calls.  There were three house fires  which caused loss and discomfort to the home owners. Bush  fires caused the greatest number of calls with a total of six.  Four furnace and three chimney fires were confined to the  . source plus two shed fires and  one: motorcycle also one false  alarm. There were three ihhal-  ator calls, all adding up to a  very busy year for the V.F.D.  Monday night's fire call at  about li pm. was caused by a  phone- call that something was  afire close to Hill's Machine  shop and at the waterline. Firemen investigated and found it  was near the old Municipal  hall. It was a pile of garbage  at the waterline which had been  set on fire. year.  .'.-... .---��-y,-.,������    ,.  ..-���_,; #\-  ; Complaints that door-to^oor  magazine salesmen were high-  pressuring the public into buying magazine subscriptions came  before Gibsons council meeting  Tuesday night. The matter was  brought to the front by aldermen and supported by Mayor  Wally Peterson who has also received cohiplaints:      ;  Seeking the advice of Clerk  David Johnston, council learned  that its only recourse if the situation warranted it was to cancel the business license which  the purveyors of magazines took  out last November. Mayor Peterson said that if the complaints  were heavy enough the license  could be cancelled.  s.A letter from Mrs. M. West  of Gower Point offered the suggestion that an organization  wider than council could be appointed to take part in the re-  habilitatoh of the park on which  the former - Gibson Memorial  United Church stood. She suggested that to replace the dying  holly trees that citizens be approached to obtain Japanese  cherry   trees   which   could   be  . planted arpund the park on a  day of celebration.  Mayor Peterson said council  already had its own committee  working on the project along v  with Ross Gibson, a member of  the Gibson family whose forebears are buried in the cemetery section of the park. (See  editorial on Page Two of this  issue). Mayor Peterson added  that if the committee needed  further help it could call on  Mrs. West and her idea.  The mayor said he would seek  co-operation of the chamber of  commerce to see what could be  done about having a later ferry  in service. He said he would like  to see the chamber arrange a  meeting with Monty Aldous,  manager of the ferry authority.  The problem of paving roads  to coincide with the work connected with the laying of sewers  has resulted in a session for deliberation on the problem, to t  avoid paving where it would  have to be torn up for sewer  pipe digging. Just what to do  and when is the point to be settled.  Less rain, more snow, '69 record  (By R. F. KENNETT)  Rainfall was well below the normal for 1969 and snowfall much  more than we ever expect to see here again on the Sunshine Coast.  A new record was also established for'consecutive days of freezing  temperatures from January 6, 1969 through February 2, 1969. It  could be said we had enough snow and cold to last us five winters.  1969  Normal  Extreme  Total  Rainfall                                   49.42"  59.45"  77.65 (61>  i        .

The letter in last week's Coast News concerning the Memorial  Park containing graves of members of the pioneering Gibson family should not go unnoticed. Something should be done about it.  For a good number of years right from the time of the days  of Gibson Memorial United Church when it was an open cemetery  in which others could be buried until today it has been a subject  of comment. Today it is a closed cemetery and cannot be used as  a burial ground.  Following removal of the United Church building when the  land was. purchased by the village council for park purposes there  was considerable discussion as to what should be done with the  cemetery. This ranged all the way from complete removal to its  rehabilitation as a landmark. One suggestion made which could  possibly be the best thing to do, was to cover the grave area with  a thickness of cement with a centre monument containing the necessary facts about the departed. The cemented area woul'.' be) jchaSin  ed off thereby arranging some privacy.  As the cemetery is now it looks as though a bulldozer passed  over it knocking stones awry and leaving it looking as though nobody cared about lit. This is not so. Descendants of the fajhuly have  taken some pains to keep it looking tidy but when there is a type  of public which has nothing better to do than muck things up,  something should be done to alleviate the situation and arrange  the cemetery area so it will noj; require constant attention. ���'  Girl Guide jubilee  1970 marks the 60th year of Girl Guiding in Canada ��� its Dia-,  mond Jubilee.  In order that as many girls as possible may get to know their  .own country and their sister Guides across Canada, there will be  a "Carousel Canada" during the summer months, with every province planning some special event for their own Guidjes to shaire  with visitors from, other provinces. The Northwest Territories and .  the Yukon will also participate.  Although this is not a camping event as such, several provinces will combine it with a camp. Carousel events will be held  simultaneously across the country, with a group of Guides and  Rangers acting as Jubilee Hostesses and a group of guests from  other provinces as Jubilee Travellers.  This nation-wide exchange of girls in the teens is planned ajs  one of the. special events to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Guiding .  in Canada.  Girl Guides on the Sunshine Coast have their ups and downs  and judging from activity at the start of this season it would appear Guiding is again on its way up. Perhaps it might bef worth*  while during Diamond Jubilee year to see that Girl Guides and  their leaders get somewhat more than a mark of respect for their  efforts. , :  COAST NEWS    -  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  1 FIVE   YEARS   AGO  After hearing disputants for  and against rezoning eight lots  on Georgia Heights so Ernest  Cartwright could build a hotel  and marina, Gibsons council  gave second and third readings  to a rezoning bylaw.  Pender Harbor and Halfmoon  Bay road crews were publicly  commended  for keeping roads  clear during the severe weather  the area had experienced recently.  Harry and Molly Almond were  given cheques at a community  dance in Roberts Creek hall following a fire which destroyed  their home.  Cougars have been reported in  the Soames Point and Roberts  Creek areas.  10  YEARS   AGO  Robert Burns, longtime village  clerk died in hospital on the day  he was named Good Citizen of  the year at the meeting of the  Gibsons and area Board of  Trade. He had been clerk since  1937.  John R. Wilson was elected  president, of the Canadian Legion Branch 109, Gibsons at the  annual meeting. J.R.W. Mason  was designated immediate past  president.  Walt Nygren was elected president and John Harvey vice-  president of Gibsons and Area  Board of Trade. Winn Stewart  15  YEARS  AGO  Proposed sale of Salmon Rock  to a private individual was opposed by Gibsons and Area  Board of Trade and informed  the minister of lands of its attitude.  Gibsons Ratepayers association  meeting urged Tony Gargrave  MLA to keep a close watch on  the possibilities of a cut in government grants to municipalities.  The B.C. Power Commission  has started an area power survey among users of electricity  in order to evaluate the need  for future power supply.  t Gibsons Gun Club has decided  to change its name to Gibsons  Rod and Gun Club thus spread  its activities over a wider field.  A plea was made for paving  the roads from the highway into  St: Mary's hospital at Garden  Bay.  20  YEARS  AGO  Premier Johnson has approved  construction of a 4,000 horse  power hydro development and  transmission line to Sechelt at  a cost of close to one 'million  dollars.

Bud Drury, who. is president of  the treasury board. This enables me to say that I have no  money problems���any time I'm  short I drop in next door arid ask  Bud for a bundle of it.  As a witticism this is in class  D3, but in Ottawa it raises a  smile because of the quips about  Treasury Board ministers.  "He heats the < dinner table  knives so his family can't use  too much butter on their bread."  "When his wife asked for a  pearl necklace on her birthday  he gave her a dozen oysters and  a rabbit's foot."  "He would throw a drowning  man both ends of a rope.   '���/���  Treasury   is  the   department  charged not with spending, but  with the control of spending. >  #     *     *���'���...;  In the present federal austerity program (it isn't called! austerity, because the word became  unpopular from the British example, but austerity is what  it is) the treasury board is the  ministry chiefly responsible for  saying no. Treasury deals with  civil service unions, and says  no to the initial wage demands  and maybe for later demands.  It is treasury which insists that  money may be spent only after  the requisite number of forms  be made out in quintuplicate.  Treasury can find an almost  limitless number of reasons for  not paying people money.  My secretary, who is among  the most astute political observers on the hill, provided me a  simple formula to apply to,-all  dealings with the Treasury  Board: "If there is any shadow  of doubt as to whether the government owes you money. Treasury's answer is a firm no." ;  However, in this coumn I shall  not attempt to weigh the merits  of treasury board operations,  beyond saying that it is my conviction that  every  government  needs at least one firm, brave  and unequivocal hay-say er, but  that I suspect that some of- the  ���red tape involved in spending  controls costs more than its  worth. The column is more directly devoted to considering the.  man who holds one of the most  unpopular jobs in any govern-  meht��� that of the Abominable  No-Man.  Mr. Drury, over six feet tall  sombrely dressed, capped by a  thick head of snow white hair,  has what a recent magazine article described as a low public  profile. Although his appearance  is distinguished, his presence is  . far less noticeable than those of  many of his confreres.  "The background: wealthy Montreal, Royal Military College and  MjcGill; with post graduate studies in France. An artillery brigadier during the war. For years  a high mandarin of the Ottawa  civil service������including the post  of deputy minister of national  defense from 1949 to 1955, he  was first elected to the commons as member for Westmount  in 1962. He entered the cabinet  1963, as minister of defense production, was later minister of  industry and, since this parliament began, president of treasury. f    ���   ���  *^*      *i��.  As is not uncommon among  men reputed jtt> be remote and  austere, he is usually smiling.  His manner is affable, but also  formal. It is when Mr. Drury  questions you, or replies to a  question, that it becomes apparent that behind the smile is a  mind which is extremely analytical, uncompromisingly direct  and impatient with any wastage  of words or thought.  Which leads to the most important aspect of the gentleman's career, and the reason  this column was written: Bud  Drury is generally believed to  be one of, four or five men in  this government on whose judgment the prime minister relies  heavily.

High Arctic Venture by Margery Hinds. ,  Published by Ryerson Press.  A Yak for Christmas by Louise Hiilary Published by Hod-  der and Stoughton Ltd. f  Gibsons Public Library, reviewed by Jules A. Mainil.  These two books are different  in setting, in style and in objectives but their . differences  point up some remarkable similarities.  High Arctic Venture deals with  a relatively unsophisticated Eskimo settlement of the late 1940's  located on the far horhwestern  shore of Hudson Bay. Margery  Hinds is the government appointed teacher and one of .the  three whites *in the settlement.  While never stating it in so  many words, her love and admiration for the Eskimo shines  throughout the bookf'Their fortitude, their ability ^o cope  with their harsh environment  their love of life and their sense  of fun is clearly spelled out with  out mawkishness or exaggeration. This is a fine, serious, but  by lib means heavy book.  A Yak for Christmas by Lou*  ise Hillary, wife of Sir Edmund  Hillary,' deals with essentially  the same kind Of people, the  Sherpas and Tibetans of northern Nepal, but in ;ah amuse-  irig vein. She and the wife of the  doctor associated with Sir Edmund in his work amongst the  Sherpas and Tibetans, take their  six children on a holiday to the  18,000 foot level in the Himalayas. '     '"'''.���  Both books deal with people  who look alike, Asiatic features,'  short, heavyset arid unbelievably  tough. They have the same ability to survive and even to  thrive in a rugged icy habitat.'  The Sherpas and Tibetans, while  much more sophisticated than  the Eskimos, have the same  qualities  of   fortitude,   courage  and love of laughter and fun.  These two books could easily,  cause the reader to speculate  whether the Eskimo people were  not in fact Asians from the Himalayan region, who over aeons  emigrated to the Arctic or wheth_  er a similar harsh environment  tends to evolve the same type  of people.  A Yak for Christmas is the  lighter book, after all it is written about a holiday with children, while High Arctic Venture  is about the author's effort to  ease decent primitive people into the complex and not always  admirable white civilization.  Both authors are women, both  write well and both are sensitive  and often wise.   ";' \  LUCKY DIPPER  A lucky dipper indeed is the  American water-ouzel. A year  round resident of British Columbia , tie haunts our ' mountain  streams and is equally at home  in three elements���air, earth  and water. It dives or walks inr  to?swiftly running streams, disappearing and reappearing like  ar witch. Its nest is 'usually behind a waterfall and ��� it dashes  to or from" it through the^fall-  ihg veil as indifferently as  though a cataract were nothing.  It is as much at horneon slip--  pery snowy margins and icer  draped rocks as oh soft summer  moss.?'  DUCK NOT A DUCK?  If you are interested in ducks  you may have heard of (the  geoduck (pronounced "gooey-  duck''.) But; you will be disappointed if youU expect1 to get ����� a  shot; at the hire! because it is  a large clam and not a duck at  all.

'...,"'���''���  ;. A. Yes, there are two extreme  types, the thin foot and the fleshy .foot, with many variations  in between:. The thin foot is usually long and narrow, the toes  quite long in relation to the arch  length. The Fleshy foot is thick  and wide, making it hard to find  the archi  f Q. Once I have determined the  i. size of my shoe, can I be assured  a fit by asking for that size?  A. No; sizes vary with different makes; sizes change with  gain or loss of weight." Always  have your feet measured.  Q. Are a person's feet identical  in- size?   '  A. Most people have one foot  larger than the other. Pick a  size to fit the larger foot and if  necessary have the other shoe  adjusted. Your feet expand as  [ -you put weight on thein, so stand,  ��� and walk: Never buy a pair that  .doesn't quite fit hoping to break  them in.       ...:_���... .'  Q. Other than normal size, how  do I inake certain I have bought  a good?fit? ' .:>;'���-'  A/ Make sure that i the widest  ;.paft of rthe shoe corresponds to  . the widest  part of your foot.  Make   sure  there  is  adequate  judge shoes?  space in front so toes can lie  straight;: Make sure the back  of the shoe taigs the heel biit  doesn't rub or cut. Make sure  the arch is long enough and  shaped, to give support without  pressure. V  Q. When my size is hard to  find, what can I do?  A. This is a vexing problem,  but one that Canadian industry  is constantly trying to improve.  Small markets in Canada make  it a more difficult problem. The  best course is to enlist the help  of a shoe retail outlet. The Footwear Bureau of Canada, 1010  St. Catherine St. W., Montreal,  has a wealth of valuable information and may be able to help.  Q. HowcanI be certain I am  buying,good shoes?  A: Be a construction critic: ,  Make sure that, the shapes of  the uppers are identical. Seams  should be well finished, no rough  edges or excess bulk. ;Many top  quabty,slices are lined at least  vat .'the-.top . opening to  prevent  stretching, friction and to absorb  perspiration. See that the stitching thoughout the shoe is fine  and smooth, without any broken  or loose threads; 'back seams  should be centered and flat. ;  In poor quality shoes, enlarged  needle holes often show along  the stitching line; this can cause  tears and split- seams. Note how  the sole is, joined to the upper,  whether sewn, cemented or molded, A sewn construction with  a welt (a thin strip of material  around the sole's top outside  edge) is excellent for children's  and men's shoes.  Q. How should I care for my  shoes?  A. Keep, shoes in repair. Run-  over heels and shoes out of  shape place', a strain on the feet.  Use shoe trees to keep shoes in  shape. :.:r-Y'r  Clean, brush and polish shoes  regularly.  Clean leather wears  longer. A cream or wax polish  keeps leather soft and protects  .against jscuffing..; _. j ..;_.;. .;   ..;/  on  The Establishment^needs help.  That is the message the B.C.  Centennial Sub-eominittee on  Youth Activities is sending to  schools and youth agericiesi  throughout the Province in hopes  'Let 'your home decorations  reflect all the color and gaiety  of Mexico. ,       )  Do it in the charming folk  art tradition ���ornaments you  can make yourself from bright  colored cotton fabrics cut in  simple animal shapes. For addled color, trim them, with lively  zig-zags of cotton rick rack and  fringe. >\   .;<;  JNo sewing is required for  these easy-to-make trims, reports the Canadian Cotton Council.    ;       ���'.���"���   ...;���;.."-  To give ibody to the ornaments ,;vuse heavy-weight non- .  woven interfacing between front  and back of the fabric designs.  Cut two 6x7- inch; rectangles of  cotton fabric and one of Interfacing to form a (base for the  designs. Join fabric and interfacing together with W^  der by Pellon, a new iron-on  product.     ;  Then trace an animal shape  oh thei fabric base and cut out.  Simple outlines of birds, owls,  lambs, fish, or Mexican burros  are most effective.   .  Glue appropriate rick rack  trims, to-the animal shapes, making identical designs on both  sides of each ornament, and use  sequins for eyes. v  For example, an ornament in  the shape of the traditional Mex  ican stone bird can be cut from  bright red cotton fabric. Outline the tail and wings of the  bird with baby-size rick rack in  black. Add rows of white baby  rick rack on the wings and tail  for contrast. "Glue one point of  the tick rack on each'side for  the bird's beak, and add black  sequins for the eyes.  Make hang-loops for the ornaments from four strands of  cotton thread in the same color  as the fabric.  0. G.

The B.C. Centennial Committee says there is nothing more  establishment than a government committee but that they  earnestly want to hear the ideas  of the young people in the Province.  The committee places no restrictions on the type of idea  they are looking for. Ideas can  be in the form of permanent projects such as buildings, sports  .' facilities, arts and community  centres, or events like rock festivals, sports and arts rallies.  Preferably, the committee would  like something entirely new, in  a category all it's own.  Two such ideas submitted to  date are a touring pop-rook festival of B.C. groups like the  Collectors and the Poppy Family  that would visit in towns through  out the province-and a suggestion that the PGE give free summer passes in 1971 so that ev .  eryone can rediscover the beau-  i ty of'', British Columbia.       f :  Students can give their ideas  to their student council representatives or they can send their  ideas, with their name and age,  to the B.C.

Point of law  (By  a Practicing Lawyer)  We have received a number  of questions concerning the function of police officials.  Q. What right do police have  to lean on hippies just because  they dress differently?  A. None���everyone is equal  before the law. If a Hippy is  charged with a criminal offense  lie will be treated the-same as  anyone else when he appears in  court. v  Q. I saw the police charge a  Hippy with obstructing traffic  but other people in square  clothes who were doing the  same thing were not charged.  How can they do this?  A. If one is charged with- an  offense it is not a valid argument in court to point out. that  someone else also committed a  similar crime. This would be  immaterial. The Judge is paid  a salary to decide cases that  are brought before him���not  other possible cases.  Q. A policeman asked me to  produce an identity card. I was  just standing on the street. Is  he entitled to this?  A. No. A policeman, generally  speaking, has the right to be  given your name and address.  Q. There was a rumble and  the fuzz asked me a whole bunch  of questions. If I answered I  might have been charged, so I  didn't answer. I don't know what  is1 going to happen how. Did I  have to answer?  A. No.  Q. Two policemen asked me '  to go to the station with them  after a  fracas on  the street,  So I went and they asked me a  lot of questions and then let me  Blake C. Alderson, D.C.

A. No. If they asked you, you  may decline. If there is any  doubt, ask if you are under arrest. If they say yes, our advice  is not to resist but to submit.  If it subsequently transpires  that there has been a false arrest, you may take steps to have  a criminal charge laid against  the police constables concerned  and or you may sue them civilly.  Q. When you are arrested do  you have the right to a lawyer?  A Anyone charged with a criminal offence has the right to  engage a lawyer to defend him  at the trial and he has the right,  v^hile in. custody, to contact. a;  lawyer. If the accused person  can't afford a lawyer he should  contact the local criminal legal  aid office.  Q. I saw a hippy arguing and  lipping off at a policeman; he  was insolent and insulting but  nothing happened. Can't he be  charged with disrespect to a  policeman/ or something like  that?  A. No.  R & G election  Gibsons  Rod   and   Gun   club  annual meeting on Jan.  14 re- .  elected Mr. P. Finlayson pres-  dent and Mr. G. Ruggles vice-  president.  Other officers are Mr. R.

January 7, 1970/  It  David Johnston  Municipal Clerk  LETTERS  Editor: 'Once again it is"my  pleasure to thank you, and your  readers for the generous support  given the Canadian Mental  Health Association's Christmas  Gift campaign.  Patients in mental hospitals,  and former .patients living in  boarding homes or alone were  each provided with a specially  chosen gift. In all, about 7500  gifts were received from all over the province, and wrapped  and distributed by mental Health  volunteers. '  The publicity given this campaign by your paper was invaluable, response magnificent.  From patients, staff and volunteers, a warm "Thank You"  to   everyone. Mrs.   Gwen  Creech, Information Services  Officer.  Editor: Having spent the last  . few winters on Gower Point Rd.  including that snowy one a year  ago, I often wondered how the  name Sunshine Coast came into  the picture. This winter though  through Christmas, Old Father  Time, aided by a wee bug  brought me to my knees, through  the lovely modern Gibsons,  Medical Clinic, and on to St.  Mary's Hospital in Sechelt;  Now if eighteen days in any  hospital can 'be'Tfcalled a pleasant experience, the doctors, and  nursing staff, right down to the  kitchen staff, certainly tried to  make it that way. The meals  were out of this world, with every   dish a   gourmet's delight.  so attractively, laid out, that  the digestive juices  iStarted to  run, as soon as you looked at  the tray. I would say the equal  if not better than I have ever  seen served in hotels or first,  class restaurants.'  Now try to picture me, miles  from my relatives on the Manitoba prairies, yet I only missed  one day without visitors, some  even from as fair as Vancouver.  As I lay in bed there, looking  out at the busy highway, with  the odd freighter passing in  sight between the houses, I saw  the meaning of the word Sunshine Coast, for its the good  people including Gibsons and  neighbors strung out along the  coast to Roberts Creek, up to  and including the peninsula that  make the Sunshine: Coast; My  only regret now is, that I will  never be able to repay all these  lovely people 'for their kindness  shown? me- since T found the Sunshine Coast.  John* H. Martin,  ���������  RR1 Gower Point Road.  TIRE PRESSURES  Automobile tire pressure  drops one pound for every 10-  degree dip in outside - air temperature, the BfC.

Responding to suggestions outlined in Kates, Peat, Marwick &  Company's Blueprint of Change  and other task force> reports,  the post office has set up a  pilot region in Ontario to implement some of the 400 recommendations the consultants have  produced in the last year.  The general manager for the  Ontario Region is John A.H.  MacKay who comes to the post  office from a distinguished career in industry. Before joining  the. department he was President of International Telephone  and Telegraph (Canada).  The major effect of the creation of the hew region is ^the  decentralization of functions:^  Authority in the areas of trans-  poration, personnel, postal service, finance, marketing and  public relation, and many other  areas, has been delegated to the  Ontario region.  In 1860, a London merchant  organized a private local mail  system for the English capital,  sporting event of the year.
