Array Provincial Library,  Victoria,  B.  C*  SERVING   THE   GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 23  Number 4, January 28, 1970.  10c per copy  6 day shopping  Harbor stores start March 1  Harbor businesses of G|bsons  area plan to be open six days  a week opening March 1.  This was decided at Tuesday  evening's dinner meeting of the  association at Coast Inn when  under the chairmanship Winston  Robinson, vice-president who  filled in for David Perry who  was unable to attend the meeting.  Discussion on the motion with  representatives of 20 businesses  present, ranged over various  dates for starting and ending  the six day week proposition but  J  it eventually simmered down  to omitting a' possible change  after Labor Day. This was left  for decision when * that time of  year comes along.  Some merchants maintained  that Monday was a good business day. Others who wanted  the changeover to Monday opening delayed until Easter or  May 24 agreed that the March  1 date for the change woull be  most suitable.  There has been talk for some  weeks that just as soon as the  weather   turns   towards   spring  there would be a move for Monday opening. The Harbor Business association members decided they would not wait for  further' s consideration of the  possibility. They - decided to  make' their own decision. ''  Improvement of street and  store lighting is still under consideration -of- a committee-including Frank Daugherty, Douglas Smith -and Ken Watson.  There was nothing to report .on  it at present and the ��� committee  is continuing it's,efforts to get  something underway.    .       . 1   .  School budget up 2%  This year's net school board  budget will total $1,852,690, 1.9  percent above last year's $1,--  827,260, it was revealed at Thurs  day night's school board meeting, by J.S. Metzler, secretary-  treasurer.  This budget- has provided for  no extensions. It was also announced 'that the schools are  all well equipped and have basic  supplies on hand sufficient to  carry' them for some time,  While $239,622 in excess of the  provincial government formula  the budget is down $41,990 below the provincial budget approved Nov. 15 which the board  regards as a good siign.  Just before the board started  on its budget analysis, it heard  a New Year Letter from Hon.  D.L. Brothers, minister of education; in which he maintained  all trustees would have to worK  harder to make the education  system work He urged that they  . keep budges under control. Following ,the reading of the lengthy letter trustees offered no  comment as the letter was ordered filed.  One bright spot in the budget  discussion revealed that with the  closing "down of the" shift system bus transportation was cut  by $26,000..  One point in this discussion  arose when the-matter of some  $6,000 -plus in architect fees was  discussed as an doubtful expense caused by the freeze on  construction after plans", had  been produced and then" forced  into cancellation by the freeze:  It was argued that as a result  there would be more expense in  architects fees if the projects  were revived even on a "curtailed basis by the department  of education, thus creating further fees to architects with,no  buildings yet under construction.*  As matters now stand this $6,-  000 is to be paid on a contractu^  al basis with no results, because  of the building freeze.  Another angle concerned the  Sechelt elementary school construction proposals which included preparation for an activity  hall and other appendages which  are now under a ban with classrooms   only   being   permitted.  ���V  At a" special meeting Monday  night Gibsons /council met with  the school board to discuss the  proposal ^hat: council along with  Sechelt approve the $239,022  budget byer^titlement. > ;;  tMaybrf' Wally Peterson and  aldermen * heard J.S. Mazier,  board secretary-treasurerr explain the" budget's arnd composition following: a few questions  council linferred it had enough  detail to work on, so board  members^etired^  : After* *niullihjg over budget  figures-in a general way, council within a 15 minute period  had put its approval oh the  board's request for power to  be able to go beyond its authorized budget level.  Earlier Sechelt, after consultation at its meeting Wednesday  of last week: decided it would  approve the board's request and  did so by telephone.  If Campbell River's council  has its way "the school board  budget will gb to . referendum  and Campbell. River taxpayers  will have to foot;the bill.  It appears Mayor Skip McDonald is j holding to his stubborn  stand ;not to review the school  budget because he feels it is not  the duty of council to^approve  another eleced body's budget. ?:���'  One of McDonald's biggest  beefs about the school budget is  that his council is now ^ being v*  asked, under present provincial  legislation, to approve a "budget  tihat affects people other "than ;  those governed by the council'.  Seventy nine percent of the  school1 district's population live  in Campbell River: The remain'-,  ing   21   percent   are '���>Sayward,  FIRE CHIEF'S REQUEST  Fire Chief pick Rannagef has  asked Gibsons Municipal council  to be included in discussions on  the placing . of fire "hydrants  when they are considered in  new water lines.

Herefis/what happened at another point on the island,:; : ^  After drastic cutting the Dis-  , trie 67 school board -approved a  1970 budget totalling $1,890,904;  which exceeds the amount the  board is permitted to spend on  its own initiative by $253,171  the Ladysmith Ghemainus Chrori  icle reports.  . Under the new provincial^ gov-  .ernment finance;v formula, the  board may make such an over-  expenditure if it receives the  consent of the councils of the  two municipalities within which  the district lies, or the ���; consent  of the ratepayers.'  The board has decided not to  submit its budget to the municipal councils so it now must  publish an advertisement stating  that it intends to spend money in  excess of the amount permitted  under the formula.; Upon publication of this advertisement, if  100 or more ratepayers petition  the school board in protest, the  board must put the question to  all of the ratepayers in the form  of a referendum, v  Last year the board's provincial budget totalled $1,645, 246 of  .which $189,246 was a similar ov-  erexperiditure: When this was  advertised, only one person protested.   _'''������_  MAY REPEAT BISTRO  Greene Court Development,  . 1970 offers thanks to those who  sent donations in-spite of being  unable to attend the Bum's Bistro at Welcome Beach oh Jan..  17 when something like $61 was  added to the court fund.

Photo: B.C. Jennings  Complaints were aired at the  meeting of the district school  boarid, covering the behaviour  of motorists at the Elementary  school corner of the Sunshine  Coast Highway.  The -complaints were that  some motorists- were ignoring  the school patrol, placed there  to direct traffic during times  when most children are going to  or coming from school.  Some: board members reported watching drivers go right  through the patrol when the signal from the patrol was against  them.  The board decided to consult  the RCMP to see what could be  done and also to take up the  matter with Principal George  Cooper who desired to end the  patrol.  A letter signed by more than  20 teachers of Elphinstone Secondary school supporting the  idea that the shift system for  educating students was superior  to the ordinary all day method  was read at last week's school  board meeting. -  Board members decided to acknowledge receipt of the letter  after discussion.

Council decided to ask the  Lions club to take over the May  Day celebration and suggested  that the club should provide a  statement of costs as a guide  for council. It was felt that coun  cil should be aware of their  gains or losses.

At the December board meeting principal Tom Ellwobd and  explained   acted  as , a   subsidy    Vice-principal Don Montgomery  to keep costs low on household  garbage   pickup.   It   was   also  suggested   that   if   the   present  company dropped out the cost  of garbage collection would be  high for villagers.  Right now it was explained  the garbage collection' was a  sort of dry run for two or three  months to see what volume  would be available. Members of  council decided to let the problem ride a while as it might  work out itself.  SCEPS urges action  A meeting sponsored by the  Sunshine Coast Environment  Protection Society was held on  Jan. 23, at St. Hilda's hall, Sechelt, attended by some 40 people from communities from Port  Mellon to Pender Harbor.  The following resolutions were  passed unanimously and sent by  letter to federal and provincial  government ministers and others: 1.; Having seen the film  Rape of Santa Barbara we demand that no oil drilling be allowed in the Gulf of Georgia and  no further oil drilling for exploration purposes  in  any  British  01S 21st birthday  Columbia     waters,    inshore or  offshore. ��� .  '  2. This meeting urges the federal government take immediate steps to proclaim Canada's  sovereignty over the lands and  waters of the Arctic and authorize an immediate and far reaching scientific research program  to ensure that all possible precautions are taken to protect the  delicate balance of nature in  Northern waters and on lands  protected by perma-frost, from  all forms of pollution brought  about by man's increasing activities in those areas.  CALL FOR TENDERS  The Sunshine Coast Regional-  District is advertising tenders  in this issue of the Coast News  for construction of a water reservoir as part of the water  system now under construction  in the area from Roberts Creek  towards Davis Bay.  This month Elphinstone Chapter, OES,. comes of age, and the  fact wall be acknowledged at the  Feb. 5 meeting.  During 21 years the chapter  has raised and donated many  hundreds of dollars to the cancer project and provided hundreds of dressings of one kind  or another for cancer patients.  Twenty women have trained for  the office of worthy matron and,  with the;assistance of the worthy patron, successfully led the  chapter   through   the   business  and      social   affairs   dependent  upon them.  These have been Mesdames  Jenny Clay and Pearl Osbom,  the first two worthy patrons,  now deceased; Christine Anderson, Doris Drummond, Phyllis  Parker, Molly McColl, Hattie  Gray, Grace MacDonald, Bessie Shaw, Rachel Usewell, Edna  Fisher, Grace Cumming, Zoe  Eades, Doris Aitchison, Margaret Swan, Jo Mylroie. Betty  Wood, Kay Franske, Emily Qui-  gley and Alice Hough.  presented a well thought-out  brief on the situation and while  they favored the double shift  from an administrative and educational environment point of  view they stated that by utilizing all available space to full  capacity the school could operate on a single shift.  ..���Mr. Ellwood said the decision  was one the Board would have  to make and whatever was decided he" assured trustees that  he and his associates would  make it work and run the school  well.  At the same December meeting Mr. R.R. Hanna, district  superintendent of schools reviewed the enrolment figure and  reminded trustees that the double shift was instituted on the  basis of a projected enrolment  -which did not materialize except  as an emergency and then for  as few students as possible.  With (he addition of the new  science labs Elphinstone could  accomodate all students in the  regular manner.  CHOm CELEBRATES  The Elgar Choir of B.C. will  celebrate its 46th anniversary  at a reunion on Friday, Feb.  6, at 8 pm. in Central Presbyterian Church hall, Pendrell and  Thurlow Streets, Vancouver.

After perusing the Throne Speech delivered in the legislature  last week and knowing that it was written on government authority  one can wonder if the writer had British Columbia of 1970 in mind  when the speech was put together.  Considering the shape of things that are important to the future  of the province and the condition in which these problems find themselves one can only wonder if they have been swept under the governmental rug.  One of these days the little man which this-government espouses so nobly is liable to.rise up and urge to be forgotten until major things which affect the province at large are settled so that  lesser governmental officials will foe able to help the little man at  their level. Perhaps fewer government surpluses and the settlement  of the many problems lurking under Victoria's rugs could be called  a logical solution. Perhaps logic is not a subject bearing the Social  Credit stamp of approval.  Fear creates  Some people even in this advanced age, are driving through' life  with their wind-screens so clouded with prejudice vand bigotry that  they are dangerous drivers, dangerous to others as well as themselves. Moreover they are seeing little of the beauties in life.  Prejudices, which have been called the stone walls of narrow-  mindedness, do not survive under honest appraisal. If an opinion  is right, it will bear the test of examination; if it is wrong, the  sooner we^get rid of it the better.  Some prejudices arise from fear. Fear of being incompetent,  of not making good, of not reaching the top of the business pyramid: these keep some people everlastingly on the look-out for critical comment or envious looks. And when we are fearful, how  easy is a bush supposed a bear. i  Criticizing people is unhealthy for the critic. He develops such  a keen scent that amid a thousand excellences he smells out a solitary defect and holds it up to mockery. He becomes a scavenger.  When Churchili^was' building a wall hie! put one' such."critic in his  place. Told that the wall was crooked', Churchill said: -"Any fool  can see what's wrong. But can you see what's right?"  Our wrong thinking about things arid mot the influx of new ideas  about things, can foe blamed for much of the trouble of our time.  The right to think for ourselves requires that we try to understand  things and how things work ratherthanclassifythemas"good"  or "bad" according to.some current guidebook to values.  The preceding paragraphs come from a recent monthly letter  of the Royal Bank of Canada and are worthy; of consideration.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  A $197,000 sewage disposal  plan was presented to Sechelt's  council by Martin J.J. Dayton  who was commissioned to estimate costs. Mr. Dayton was  asked to attend the next council meeting to go over the figures.  A tabulation of official results  of the vote on Referendum five  and six for school purposes revealed that of the 7,500 eligible  voters, 638 actually voted of  which more than 70 percent  were in favor. <  At a Sechelt meeting of the  school board, Chairman Joseph  Horvath noted that outside of  board members in the hall there  was only one member of the  public present.  10   YEARS  AGO  Rev. David Donaldson, Gibsons Memorial church minister  announced that he has decided  to remain another year. He had  planned to retire.  Winners of a safety competition at Port Mellon CFP mill  presented St. Mary's hospital administrator with a cheque for  $455. An earlier cheque for $512  brought donations up to $967  through endeavors of employees.  15  YEARS  AGO  Taxpayers were informed by  government officials at a public meeting that under the new  equalized tax assessment act  present assessments will bft 43  percent higher than they were  under the 1941 act.  There were 43 persons at the  January meeting of Gibsons  PTA and members decideP to  hold a bazaar soon to raise money.  Hubert Evans of Roberts  Creek reports he has had two  plays accepted for production  by the CBC Radio.  Pender Harbor Community  club has decided to sponsor the  first Boy Scout troop for that  area.  A proclamation was issued announcing a vote on the sale of  liquor on licensed premises and  with meals in restaurants or  dining rooms for the Sunshine  Coast.  20  YEARS  AGO  Norman Sargent was elected  president of the Howe Sound  Farmers Institute.  Because the dog situation in  Gibsons was getting out of hand  the village council decided on a  $1 tax for male dogs and a $2  for females.  Arctic weather conditions are  causing considerable hardship  on travel by ship these days as  the result of freezing over of inlets along the coast.

Its equipment includes a large and varied marine fleet as well as numerous  trucks, cars and other vehicles.  (BY HILDA LEE)  ." ��� ���   -J '������       ������'������:.. :'.���.  If you are one of the lucky  people travelling to Expo '70 in  Japan this year, perhaps I  could help you with a few hiints,  having been in.-the Orient last  year.  The most pleasant time to  arrive as regards climate is  April, May & the beginning of  June. Then the weather is cooler  & ispringlike. A. light coat is  . useful. If you have to go in July or August the weather is  hot and very humid and is the  rainy season. Wear light cottons  and cotton lingerie, no nylons,  and take a folding umbrella,  preferably -a light colored, one.  It will serve a dual purpose,  keep the rain or the sun off.  You will- find everyone carries  one in the rainy season; It is  too humid to wear a coat, even<  a light plastic one will stick to  you, but the sun is so warm  you will soon dry if you get a  little damp. "'/���;  Most women and children  wear a large shady hat. These  you, can buy very reasonably in  the department stores or sou-  venier shops about 150 yen (52  cents) so do not take up space  with one from here. None of the  nativesYteeem to wear dark glasses, they are used to the brightness, but Westerners find them  useful. ��� i;  September \&- sometimes the  typhoon month, but the weather  is cooler and not so humidi.  Take your money in American*  currency, this you can change  into -yen without difficulty; -at  the banks are special money  changing places marked as such  You will soon learn to figure in  yens: 10 yen is 3 cents, 50 yen  is 14 cents, 400 yen is $1.11 and  1,800 yen is $5. It comes in paper money and coins, most clearly marked). Ask the bank for a  little card showing the coins &  their value. You have to have  Japanese money, they will not  accept any other. s  Taxies are very numerous.'&  very cheap in. Japan. You can  .bail ��� one and if Jhe is goin^th^  opposite direction he will turn  around anywhere. Traffic rules  are very loose.  Their trams are very clean,  fast, on time and reasonable.  Some have two classes, others  just one. The stations are called  out over the loud speaker in  Japanese so it is well to learn  the name of the station before  the one you wish to get off.  If travelling in a taxi, try to  get the name of the place you  wish, to go to and come to written down in Japanese, as most  taxis drivers do not speak Eng  lish, your hotel would do this  for you.  There is a language problem  in Japan^The young people here  learn some English in school  and are very anxious to talk  to you to practice, but it is very  limited and most older people  do no understand any. In? the  department stores there are  certain ones in the^ staff who  speak English and. are usualy  marked, so if you need help  look for one of these. Of course*  at Expo itself there will be lots  of English speaking guides.   /  Good hotels and western food  are expensive, but the service  and accommodations are excellent. A 10 percent service charge  is afdded to your biM, so no tipping is needed. You can stay  at Inns and with some Japanese  families much cheaper but don't  expect all theicomforts of home.  Japanese coffee (to my taste)  is very poor, their, black tea is  palatable, clear or with a little  sugar or lemon.. Do not look  for meat as we know it. Japan is  too small to. raise cattie except  the famous Kobe beef, which is  very expensive. Shell1 fish, fish,  pork and chicken arc plentiful  and very tasty. Western food is  obtainable from hamburgers and  so on.  Liquor is expensive, but the  local beer is very good and reasonable, depending on where  you buy it; It costs from 80 yen;  on the train to 130 itm the hotels.'  Japanese drink a lot of beer  and soft drinks. Coca Cola sighs  are very plentiful.  Paper seems to be a scarce  commodity and I would advise  you to take plenty of kleenex in  your purse in public rest rooms,  paper towels are hardly ever  seen and even toilet tissue is  missing. You may be given one  very small towel for about 12  people to dry on. Don't be  too shocked if you run into a  community restroom in a public  park.  In the hotels are better rest  ; places, there are some western  style toilets but a lot of places  only have the Japanese style,  the oval type sunk into" the  floor, these can prove a bit difficult 'depending on what one is  wearing. v  Cameras, binoculars, transistors . and some watches are  cheaper in Japan but 4nost clothing #s not. Pure silk is very  costly, like everywhere else they  have synthetic materials. The  silk worm display from grub to  finished product is worth a visit.  It is in the Silk Hotel! Yokahama,  there is also 2 floors of nice lit-  Air pollution study planned  As further steps in the provincial government's anti-pollution program, the British Columbia Water Resources Service  has commissioned B.C. Research  to carry out a general study of  air pollution in the province and  an investigation into the effects  of mine and mill wastes on the  water environment, it was announced by the Hon. Ray Will-  iston, minister of lands, forests  and water resources.  The air pollution study will  be used to provide initial background for administration of  new pollution control legislation  which I reported last year would  be introduced during the forthcoming session of the Legislature, Mr. Williston said.  JB.C Research will assess the  magnitude of existing air pollution in British Columbia, based  on estimates of emission sources  substantiated by a limited number of field measurements, the  minister added.  With a scheduled completion  date of Oct. 1, the study will ibe  carried out under Dr. A.D. Mc-  Intyre, head of the B.C. Research Division of Applied Chem  istry. Dr. Mdntyre also will  prepare an information pamphlet on air pollution for general  distribution by the Water Resources Service. This should be  completed early this year.  The other study will be an investigation into the acceptability arid feasibility of discharging mine itnd mill wastes by  various methods into fresh and  salt water, and is additional evidence of the government's de  termination to exercise maximum control over any potential  pollution resulting from the existing industrial development  and development proposals in  the province, Mr. Williston said.  The aim of the investigation is  to provide scientific background  for considering the effect on environment of mine and mill  waste underwater disposal. The  study will be carried out under  the direction of Dr. C.C. Walden,  head of the research organization's division of applied biology  and is expected to foe completed  by March of this year.  B.C. Research is the research  operation of the non-profit independent British Columbia.

Highlight's of the recent meet-  - ing of the B.C. Yukon Red Cross-  Youth committee in Vancouver  contain a proposal which in  time may affect local members!  The committee is composed of-  representatives of the B.C. Teachers federation, the B.C. Parent Teachers Federation, some  government departments, school  boards, three youth members as  well as the chairman J. Ross  Hind from the department of  education.       ���"������'."  Chief items on the agenda  were the condition of the buxU  get, the directors report and a  brief from Mr. Carrol, provincial  water safety director. It is this  brief that may be of interest to  citizens of this area. '  Mr. Carroll divisional water  safety director informed the  committee of the development  between water, safey arid Red  Cross Youth. There could be a  correlation , of a project to ih-  "struct Indian children in water  safety since the children cannot  afford, the required expense.  They feel out of place and will  not participate in established  programs. Possibilities suggested Were to begin a program  /to interest the children in water;  purchase portable pools and provide instructors.  Mr. Carroll suggested that because so few Indian children  seem unwilling or incapable of  participating in present water  safety programs a separate proi  gram must be established for  thenu      .  If necessary portable pools  could be purchased and instructors hired. The proposal is directed at interior Indians who  lack suitable natural facilities  for proper insruction in water  safety. <  Portable pools are costly and  it would be a gamble to purchase such equipment with no  ���guarantee for the project's sue-  cess. If the program could be  begun without the'use of expensive equipment and be successful equipment might then be purchased, with more confidence.  Local interest becomes an important factor in the scheme.  The program could be started in  a coastal Indian community with  access to a suitable beach area.  Sechelt offers such a site and  could easily play a major role  in the development of this project if the Indian children and  parents there could be interested in the proposal.

Children's standard sizes catchin g on  Canada Standard Sizes for  children's clothing are catching  on, says Ron Basford; minister  of consumers and corporate affairs. -A year arid a half ago, before the Department became involved with the Canada Standard  Size program, there were only  33 licensees. Today there are 165  and applications keep conning in.  The Canada    Standard    Size  system is voluntary. Firms that  , obtain a license agree to meet  CSS specifications on any clothing they manufacture and label  as a CSS garment. The CSS label carries  the words  Canada  > Standard Size  within  a  coiled  -tape measure showing the figures of two different sized children.  Because the system is voluntary, said Mr. Basford, consumer demand will determine the  extent to which it is used. I  would urge all parents, therefore, to look for CSS clothing and  df they don't find it, to ask for it.

The Canada Standard Size system is based' on body measurements.  Parents can determine their  child's Canada Standard Size by  taking   three    of four   critical  measurements. When they buy a  garment made to CSS specifications they can be assured that  it will fit those measurements.  The advanage to consumers,  said Mr. Basford, Is that if a  garment as a CSS size^ they know  it will conform to the body measurements. There is no guesswork.

'AP- general  potting mixture of one part  peat or milled isphaghum moss,  one part good garden loam  and on�� part clean sharp sand  is a good growing medium for  most plants.-  Garden loam is an undefined  variable term that generally  refers to a soil that, when wet,  clings together if squeezed in  the hand, but corneas apart  quickly when the tension is relieved; It should not form a  sticky; mass. Sand; should; be  uniformly coarse arid hot fine.  The addition. of perlite as part  of the volume of sand may be  necessary -if the sand is from  a' lake or of'poor  quality.  There are many ways of telling when a^plant needs, water.  Researchers at the Plant. Research institute, who need to  be more exact in their water  applications, >use a special  moisture indicating instrument.  Some gardeners merely feel  the soil, others know by the  light color of dried-out earth.  Sound clay pots tapped .sharply  with the knuckles will ring  like a  bell  if they are dry.  Many people water their  plants too often. Thinking to  avoid the problem, some actually leave their plants in a pan  of water at all times. The following information on how of-  jten plants should., be watered  will apply to plants that have  been provided with good drainage   and  a  good   compost.  Established African violets,  .say those in four-inch pots,  growing in a peat compost and  in a room of normal .winter  home temperatures, should not  need watering more often than  once every four days. Succulents like the thick-leaved jade,  plant, aloes, crassula and various types of cacti may remain in good health without being ��� given water ior a month  to six weeks. In fact, desert  cacti benefit from being given  a rest period from December  to the. end of March with no  water at all. /Foliage plants  such as dieffenbachia, philo-  dendron,; pothbs, the Chinese  evergreen, aphelandra and pe-  peromia in humusy soil need  watering about every three  days:  Leaves give you some good  indications. Plants with large,  thin, soft leaves use more water than those with hard, waxy leaves. Sansevieras, for  instance, can go for long periods without water, but coleus  plants wilt very quickly. Check  your plants every morning and  do not allow them to wilt.  Don't go to an extreme -in wa-  ering  to prevent wilting.  Finally, when you do water,.  give your plants a thorough  soaking. A little water every  day is not good. Water well  and let the plant dry out before you soak it again.  PLASTIC BEE HIVES   y  Plastic hives���polystyrene to  be completely accurate���make  dandy homes for alfalfa leaf-  cutter bees. Dr. G.A. Hobbs of  the Canada Agriculture Researcn  station at Lethbridge, Alta.,  has also learned that light blue  with black or- green background  attracts more bees to the hive.  An additional, bonus, says Dr.  Hobbs, is that the bees work  longer hours in the polystyrene  nests than in wooden ones.

On Hie opening of (heir Prescription Pharmacy  next to the Medical Clinic  DICK BLAKEMAN  PAINTING  is serious m  areas  Thefts and vandalism at British Columbia logging operations  are soaring as increasing thousands of outdoor enthusiasts use  the industry's logging roads for  free access to forest lands.  One forest products company,  . MacMi&lan Bloedel Limited, reports that thefts and wanton  vandalism have; cost the company and its employees about  $100,000 within, recent years. Other companies are experiericiiig  the same problems. '"'  The MB spokesman said that  in 1969 thefts and vandalism had  cost the company more than  $21,000. But almost one-third of  these losses had occurred during  September and October, the opening of the hunting season.  Last year 34 power saws, each  costing from $250 to $400j were  stolen, along with a number of  $1,200 portable radios, a 25-ton  capacity hydraulic jack and air  compressors valued at about  $280 each. ' '    .:."..  Blasting powder, blasting caps  and fuses up to 500 feet in length  have been taken and these constitute a danger to the public  when,taken back to homes in  B.C. communities.  Fire extinguishers and first-aid  kits have been stolen which  could lead to runaway forest  fires or possibly loss of life if  their disappearance is not noticed before a fire or an acc>  dent occurs.  Wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers  loggers rain clothing and gear  owned by employees, tarpaulins,  truck batteries, flashlights, even  1,500 to 2,000 -candlepower floodlights used: for night logging  have been carried away. Whole  drums of gasoline containing up  to 45 gallons have been stolen. f  In one case a tire and wheel  was taken from a logging crew  bus, in another an eight-man  tent measuring 10x12x16 feet  vanished.     -,  : At one logging ./division jneaifcv.  Port Alberni half a day's proV  duction was lost because vandals  dumped the fuel stored m the  area and then drained the fuel  tanks of the yarders arid loaders  and loosened cables supporting  the heavy equipment.  In another, instance vandals ~  took small timber toters used to  haul' logs, staged a rodeo in the  woods, smashing the vehicles  into one another. Drums of fuel  and the exhaust mufflers oh logging trucks were punctured with  bullet holes.,  This sort of senseless behavior could lead to placing guards  and patrols at the logging division, said the MB spokesman.  This would be a shame since it  would interfere with the very  freedom the public want when  they head for the forests to escape ciy life.

It has been the policy carried  out by the Motor-Vehicle Branch  since December 1st, 1968 that all  persons convicted of the Criminal Code offences which involve  driving after consuming alcoholic beverages will be suspended  for a period of at least one  month on the first offence. Subsequent - offences could lead to  longer periods of suspension.  There has been no deviation  from this policy, that is, no per-  ' sons so convicted have been allowed . to drive for business purposes during that suspension  period.  This- policy has v been spelled  out before but it is repeated  here so that motorists might be  aware of    consequences    they.  face.

The person  making the gift is the donor and  the person receiving it is  termed the donee. The tax is  paid by the donor. Unlike income tax, the person who receives the funds does not pay a  tax on them. The amount of tax  is a percent of the value of the  gift and rises on a sliding scale  from a minimum of 12 percent  to a maximum of 75 percent.  Gifts to any donee are exempt  up to a maximum of $2,000 in  any one year. Therefore, a donor may make any number of  tax free gifts in a year, to any  number of donees provided he  does not give any one of them  more than $2,000.  All gifts between.husband and  wife are tax exempt.  (Copyright)  Gift tax is cumulative. The effect of this is that donor must  keep a ���record of all his gifts-rvalue in excess of $2,000 per person. Over the years the taxable,  amounts (over $2,000) are added  together and this cumulative total determines the tax rate, for  any taxable gifts made in the  current year.  For example,  if  donor gave $10,000 per year in  taxable gifts, by the 20th year  would have a cumulative gift total of $20,0(Kh If he gave another  $10,000    in the    21st    year, he  would pay tax at the maximum  rate   of 75    percent. In    other  words, it would cost him $7,500  to give $10,000 away. AH of which  illustrates  (without meaning to  appear, irreverent)that it is  more blessed to receive- than to  give, when it comes to gift tax.

PAUL  ST. PI ER R E, M P  COAST-CHKLCOTIN  Private members' -public, bills,  to give them their full-and seldom-used title are not as important in .parliament as they ^may  seem at a distance.  They are entered on the order  paper in scores early in a session, but only a few will ever  be debated. The last hour of the  afternoon sittings which is set  aside for considieraion of these  bills Jdoes not provide time for  the hearing of many of them.  A few days after a session begins, all private members, bills  and notices of motion are  dropped in a hat. They are then  listed in the order <Jrawn. By  the luck of the draw, 20 or so at  the top of the list wi)ll be de-  bated.-'"':. ','���  The rest will be paragraphs on  paper, nothing more. In the  course of the session, more private members will introduce  more bills to the list. These  have, not the slightest hope of  being debated. The only purpose  served is that the member is  permitted about three sentences  of explanation of his bill when  he introduces it. This may add  a drop of publicity to whatever  cause he is^ espousing!. I  r        ;:  There are further obstacles to  legislation by private members.  They may .not introduce money  bills, for instance. .Only cabinet  members may .introduce bills  committing government to spend  ��� money.. .���'���''���'���  But the greatest obstacle of  all to the passage of any private-  member's bill or motionis the  parliamentary tradition    which  establishes the cabinet as the;;  maker, of legislation and private .  MPs as men charged with voting for or against it.  Occasionally the government  agrees to a form of acceptance.  In the closing minutes of the  private members hour, a government party member will  move that this bill be hot how  read a third time, but be referred to tlie standing commitr  tee. I had one such" success in  the last session when my private  member's notice of motion recommending absentee ballot ting _  in federal election was referred  to the appropriate commitee. It  did not bind the government to  establish an absentee voting system, but it was a public, indication of a degree of government  approval, anjd presumably had  some value for that reason.  Otherwise; and almost always  the private member's bill is  talked out. Members of all parties may speak in support of  it. It may be killed with kindness���kissed to death, as it were.  For, as the hands of the clock  touches 12, it will be found that  a government anembr is on his  feet, still praising the bill. There  is not tame for a vote. The debate is adjourned. Adjourned, to  when? Since the bill then goes  to the bottom.of the long list on.  the order paper, it is effectively  adjourned to never.  However, Parliament always  has "its surprises. Just before  Christmas, ; Private Members'  Hour provided not one but three.  The first came within about  30 seconds of the commencement of debate. Bill C-12, an act  to provide better labelling of  medicines, was introduced by  Max Saltsmani (NDP-Waterloo).  Normally, the firsi to speak  would be Mr. Saltsman. He was  slow in getting to his feet.; Stanley Knowles spoke out load and  clear. "Carried", he said. It  may have been a jest but Mr.  Saltsman took the cue. He remained in his seat: Government  members were so astonished  that none arose.  x ''Shall the bill be given second  realding?" said the Speaker. Se-  veray shouted "aye". None said  "nay".  "Carried said the speaker.  Most of us who were present���a  . bare quorum of 20-odd-H3Ould  scarcely believe what we had  heard and apparently taken part  in. This, I think, may have h>  eluded Mr. Saltsman and Mr.  Knowles themselves. Both were  ���laughing when I met them a  few minutes later behind the  curtains. ��� .,  One private member's bill"  having been passed along to a  standing committee for the next  stage of legislative process, a  second member's private bill  came forward. Mr. Knowles' bill  to abolish the Canadian Senate.  Two member's bills within an  hour? Highly unusual. The same  tactics were attempted by Mr.  Knowles, but this time the government supporters forced a  vote. The bells rang. The prime  minister, the cabinet and all the  other members trooped in to  vote. The NDP bill did not pass,  of course, being supported only  ~by the NDP members "and myself and Walter Deakon (Liberal  Hyde Park.) But a formal house  vote on a private member's  bill was an event in itself.   :,  Then finally, on this memorial  day, yet a third private member's bill came up for debate.;  A bill to make water pollution a  criminal offence, introduced by j  David Anderson (Liberal-Esqui-r  malt-saanich). And the government party amused or bewildered, allowed this, too, to pass.  No    parliamentary institution  is entirely useless.  KINSMENS'  MOTHERS' MARCH  M01NHB ME MOB!

DANROTH, 886-9988  Seaside Plaza ��� Gower Point Road  Gibsons ��� Phone 886-2325  The Management and Staff wish to thank all the  merchants and customers who wished us success  in the future  Door prize winners were:  Mrs. Win Stewart  Mrs. Lorraine Goddard  Mrs. Marlene Blakeman  Mrs. Kathleen Watson  about the fit of shoes?  A. Shoes should be worn evenly at the ball of the foot, and  the heel worn at the back outer  edge. Sighs of wear at the; toe'  indicate shoes are too short;  probably outgrown. Wear around  the edge of the sole tells - that  the sole is too narrow across  the - ball of the foot; this may  eventually cause bunions and  corns.  Excess wear on the inner  edge of the heel or sole may  indicate that the child is not  walking properly.  Q. Should shoes be handed  down?  A. No; each shoe molds itself,  to the    characteristics    of the  wearer's, foot.  Q. They say that babies should  wear high top shoes; is this so?  A. Although mothers are often  advised to put babies into high  top shoes first on the theory  that it helps form the arch, this  is not necessary. The foot and  arch will usually develop normally in low quarter shoes with  adequate space and a straight  last.  Q. I hear that children's feet  are getting bigger. Is anything  being done about it?  A. There is considerable research being done at the moment regarding the size range  of children's shoes, since a recent study showed that 90 percent of children in the 11-12 age  group now wear adult shoe  sizes; Several Canadian manufacturers have introduced a line  of children's shoes that cover  the size and style requirements  of the larger footed youngster.  Q. What about new materials  being used in children's shoes?  Is it as good as genuine leather?  A. In soling products, the plastic and neolite products long  t outwear leather. They are also  fungus proof. The main drawback to footwear with this type  of soling is it is usually made  by the molding process, rather  than by the sewn or cement process. Molds are expensive to buy  so in order to keep prices in line,  manufacturers do not offer as  large a selection in styles.  Q. People say that children's  shoes do not wear as they used  to; is this so?  A. Children often no longer  play on grass or dirt surfaces.  <The trend today in schools and  playgrounds it to asphalt surfaces, which are very abrasive.  Shoes naturally will wear out  faster, and parents should bear  this in mind.  Shoes are one of the most important articles of clothing to  your overall health: and well-be-  ing: Selection of proper footwear,  particularly during a child's  growing years, will asure good  foot health now, and in later life.  Piloting class  on active trip  Last Tuesday evenings lesson  on boating, for this years piloting class and their instructors  was the real thing thanks to  British - Columbia Ferries and  personnel.  The group of 14 were given a  conducted tour of the bridge  and the engine room aboard the  Sunshine Coast Queen, skippered  by Captain Al White. '  While on the bridge the class  was shown the difference between the magnetic and gyro  compass, and were asked to find  the ships deviation. They were  able to take beam bearings off  the light on Twin Islands, and  to observe navigation lights on  tugs with tows, as well as watch  the radar in action.  Captain White gave. a short  talk on how they chart their  course beween Horseshoe Bay  and Langdale. They were then  shown the radio systme aboard  the ship and listened to the 2182  distress frequency which is monitored constantly.  The direction finding syqstem  was explained and also the fire  /detecting e quipmeht and how  they can seal off the bulkhead  doors should an emergency occur. ,.'vr-'  ; Arrangements for the trip  were made by Pete Finiaysoh of  B.C.

COAS^NEWS  Giiom ��� Ph. 886-2622  A visit to  BY SEAN DALY  Machupicchu   was one   highlight of my trip to South America in iterms-of its unique architecture and bold natural setting.  "As a stone terraced city, constructed of the very materials  ^constituting the opposing peaks  of Machu and, Huayna .Piechu it  demonstrated the    inspirational  effect of the rugged Andean topography . on  the  human soul1.  Man  re-arranging natural materials   (rocks),   modifying the  natural. environment, asserting  hitmself as, a natural agent acting upon' the   raw  world,   <to  transform it in his own image,  to (take a step further in development.  Having returned to Lima, I  decided to visit the Callejon de  Huayias, a valley between two  high opposing ranges, the Cor-,  dilleras Negra y Blanka, to the  west and the east respectively J "  Within the Cordillera Blanca lies  the highest mass of ice-mantled'  rock in Peru���Huascaran at 22,-  205 feet. above sea level. My  diary on my ascent to this valley, to the village of Huaras  reads: Writing now from Huaras, the capital of Ancash. It lies  between the tCordiilleras Negra  y Blanca, in- the valley of the  ���Rio Santa. Very tired after an  early .rising and a long car ride."  Arose at 3:30 am. to the jingle  of my alarm clock (detestable  things which remind me too  much of work) which somehow  coincided exactly with the entrance of a Peruano who was  a new boarder in my room. Reluctantly I arose and packed,  that is, tied my two bundles tor  gether and I tugged my tjius prepared mochiila, or packsack,  downstairs to the vacant street. <  I waited nearly an hour, by  which time I was almost cer?  ,tain I had missed the- car, but  just as I was about to give up,  they arrived and I climbed  , aboard. Two adult passengers  and a so-called chica, in the  back seat. Adding one more further on, a Peace Corps worker  (as I call (them)���we were complete and soon left Lima's neon  lights behind, to journey through  the desert once agaiin. As niorn- _  ing slowly and undramaticafly  dawned, infusing the grey overcast skies and yellowish-grey  desert sand with a faint light,  we turned off the Pan���Am and  its swift pavement, onto a simple dirt track, narrow and dusty, to assault the Cordillera Negra. Back in casual country  again with folks strolling about,  perhaps washing their faces or  pushing a cart, or tending a baby, all publicly in open doorways or in the d^t street.   ^  At first gradually, and .then  more precipitously,. we wund  our, way up the: .narrow dirt road  often seeing the" road; we had  just passed over directly below  us. Breakfast, during which I  tried my first r chirimoya (a  sweet, soft, juicy fruit) was a  tiny village with a postage stamp  size plaza, in a valley bordered  by bare bleached ramparts. At '  the same spot,, a flattening tire  was discovered so patching two  holes took awhile. Several times  on the way we had to stop for  the chica (chick, babe) to be  sick, which was quite miserable  for her. The Peace Corps fellow  spoke fluent Spanish after ten  months in Huaras. He was very  considerate and solitious of the  sick girl. As an s agricultural!  worker, he explained there are  papas, mais (Potatoes, corn)  amid some wheat or barley this  high up. On the way up to the  pass which leads into the Rio  Santa valley^ the ;going was  very giddy and very narrow  with many blind corners around  which we occasionally came  face to face with a fast auto,  necessitating quick reactions at  the steering wheel. We looked  down atone spot where a cam- ���  ion (truck) had rolled overhand  killed two; passengers. Something like the old Fraser Canyon highway only much worse.  This, kept us alert and awake  anyway, rto see the fantasic  mounain heights and depths.  Among the intrusive rock weathering boldly, dark grey in color were' some gigantic parallel,  verticle joints like the columnar  joints of basalt.  Near the summit, the road  wound its way between huge  isolated talus boulders. Previous  to this the r^ad had traversed a  long steep: slope modified byv a  series off agricultural terraces,  the very terraces worked "productively by the inca peoples.  Topping the summit, ithe driver thoughtfully stopped to let  me take a photo of the first  snow tipped peaks of the Cordillera Blanca and a shallow  fresh blue lake from which the  Rio Santa is born, at first a  mere creek, to step over without effort, later to become a  fresh mountain stream towards  Huaras, and in rainy season a  rushing torrent. During our ascent we had emerged from the  winter coastal overcast and entered impeccable blue skies and  hot sunshine. The Rio Santa valley is magnificent on such a day  and as one proceeds down it  from the summit, the Cordillera  Blanca sweeps into view, from  Kheulla���Rafu in sharp focus to  the hazy immense Huascaran to  the north, a dramatic culmination of the pristine grandeur of  the Cordallera.  From one's first glance onward, one is drawn irresistably  towards this giant, td view it at  close quarers, to photograph it  and perhaps  to  feel it   under  foot. It is a bold fact, attesting  to the dynamic forces of nature  and  existing   independently   of  man's wiH,-thus demanding certain awe and respects In relation  to it we are mere observers,  commenting upon a boldly manifest event," a striking facet of  nature.: It is the difference between actively engaging in a.  ithing's creation and standing by  watchig it happen. ������ -  Meanwhile. Huascaran continues to change before our very  eyes: ceaselessly its glaciers,  streams and the atmosphere act  upon it and dynamically transform it. For example it still retains a scar from the slide of  1961, being composed of -mud,  boulders and ice which swept  swiftly and fatally down over  some farmers near Yungay,  then was squeezed through the  narrow drain of Canon del Pato  and burst out onto the coast.  Such alurtonos are quite common in the valley and render  existence precarious in the small  villages such as Huaras, Car-  huaz and Yungay. I heard the  next slide is-expected to come  from the massif ,Huandoy, and  story is that a man will be  posted up there in a shack with  a telephone,: so that when the  slide begins he'll just phone  down and tell the people to run  like hell, on the theory that five  Coast News, Jan. 28, 1970.      7  Used furniture.or what  ���:���;.��� have you ���'  WE BUY BEER  ' \ ���' wt&rnJss  U.1 USEDFURHHUM  Gibsons ��� 888-28121  SOLNIK SERVICE  FOR  DAJSUN  Sales & Service  Sunshine Coast Highway  Ph. 886-9662 ��� GIBSONS  PLAY  THURSDAY  JANUARY 29  GIBSONS LEGION HALL - 8 p.m.  Sunshine Coast Highway  19 6AMB $10 �� 0VB  20fliGAMI  ssoa-so am    $250-52 am  $100-55 CAL15      $50-56 OU or MOM  Minors under 16 not allowed  s   GIBSON?
