 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  The only newspaper printed in the area Port Mellon to Egmoni  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 23  Number 22, June 3, 1970  10c per copy  B. L. COPE DIES  Bertram L. Cope, in his 88th  year, died Saturday at his home  in Roberts Creek. Mr. Cope was  well known on the. Sunshine  Coast.  Power boat  day likely  A power boat demonstration,  possibly for Sea Cavacade time  was termed likely by Walt Nygren at the recent meeting of  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce.      *  Walt Nygren said power boat  people in Vancouver had written  to see what they could do about  a day in Gibsons area if someone would put up prizes worth  $500.  Mr. Nygren said he was anticipating further correspondence  with the power boat men and  would try and tie them in with  the Sea Cavalcade weekend during early August.  Mayor Wally Peterson informed the meeting that the. council  planned to refloor the unused  part of the Municipal wharf so  a booth could be built there for  club purpose�� during the summer. Frank Daugherty earlier  announced that there would be  a July 1 event there in aid of  the Children to. Children fund.  There are also other events lined up. ��� -���' '���;  '   .���'  Pupils sensible!  size  Construction Aggregates, involved in the removal of gravel  through the Sechelt Indian Reserve to water for barging has  decided to work for the time  being a small area of the whole.  This was revealed ait last  week's monthly meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District board when an application  for limited operation was received.  If the company had arranged  that it start^work on the whole  area it would pay costs on the  whole under land use regulations. By cutting down the area  to about one-quarter of the whole  such taxation would be limited  to the same extent.  New Eldorado!  If you are broke, collect coins  or just want some work to do,:  the man to see is Gene Yablon-  ski at 1625 Marine Drive, Gibsons.  He has been turning the soil  in his backyard and has found  something like 15 nickels, one  of them dating back to 1923. According to pioneers his lot was  a well treed lot and provided  good shelter on hot days.  Huck Marshall, a neighbor,  says he remembers when the  youngsters of Gibsons played  among the trees there and that  it is quite likely the nickels fell  out of their pockets.  Gets six months  Sydney Garnetfct Edmonds  whom RCMP Const. D. B; Roth  d-sanmed at about 1 a.m. on the  morning of May 15 when called  to the Edmonds home, was sentenced to six months jail plus  probation for three years and a  five year ban on carrying firearms.  He was charged with being in  possession of an offensive weapon. Cst. Roth talked his ,way  close to the armed man in spite  of the loaded .308 rifle and eventually overpowered him.  Roberts Creek Elementary  school pupils, have offered to  place six barrels for garbage at  selected spots in Roberts Creek  area in. an effort to keep down  pollution.  A letter to the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board making  the offer was read at its May 29  meeting. The youngsters wanted  to know if it would be approved  and if the garbage collection service would see that they were  emptied when required. '.';  Chairman Cliff Gilker of the  Regional board complimented^  the youngsters on behalf of.the  board and in turning the matter  over to the garbage committee"  said the regional1 board should  try and do something for them.;  It was suggested the board*  look into the possibility of plac-;  ing such containers at othejf,  areas where there is likely to  be gatherings of people oil a��  recreation basis.  * ���       .    X-- ���  Water finance  easement  Financing of the Regional District's water system under the  new Municipal Financing Authority is under close study of  directors of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board.  At a special meeting in early  April the board discussed, the  possibility of the district's water  financing coming within the  scope of Municipal Financing  Authority act, legislative bill  No. 74.  This bill stipulates that the  authority may finance only those  sewer, water, pollution control  and abatemejK^ facilities for  which a ��� loan authorization bylaw was adopted^!tor .fearch 31,  1970.,  v   \^\.-f;:^;^v  Tlie Regional District bylaw  covering authorization for a $1,-  000,000 water loan which was  later extended to $1,500,000 was  passed by the board on March  28, 1969. The HumcipEd Author-.  : ityk acfci^ie<iom^"^ff&(^verXon'  authorizations adopted after  March 31, 1970.  However there is a section in  bill 74 which the; regional board  has studied. It involves the right  of approval of the lieutenant-governor to request that the financing authority take care of the  Sunshine Coast $1,500,000 loan  financing.  J. D. Baird, deputy minister of  municipal affairs addressing the  'Municipal Officers Association  took a dim view of municipalities borrowing at an interest  rate of 10% on capital1 projects.  He urged all local government  bodies to use great restraint on  borrowing. He mentioned that  the new municipal financing auth  ority would meet on July 3, and  that all debenture issue requests  should be in the hands of the  secretary of the authority before  June 25.  The problem will also be tackled at 'the annual convention of  the Union of B.C. Municipalities  whose strength is expected to  be exerted on behalf of municipalities who are finding financing difficult while on their own.  The 10 acre subdivsion minimum set by provincial authorities does not apply to shoreline  lots.  The proposed nursing home for  the Ballentine property in Hopkins area was squelched when'  15 area residents protested by.  letter. While not in line with  Regional District zoning plans:  the title contained a coyenant  restricting the land to residential-  use. ' ��� .-������'.  A Halfmoon Bay beach area  recommended to provincial authorities by Lee Straight as ��a  possible provincial park received a ministerial reply to the effect it was not of provincial significance. Some directors  thought it was of regional significance but Gibsons Mayor Wally Peterson urged caution^ as  parks could 'become a responsi-j.  bility without provincial financr;  ing. ..;;/  ^  The board learned that Pen-?  der. Harbour ratepayers associ-^  ation sent out 196; requests for^  '.;,���an;:: jqpinaoh; :6nyii'ga^lxigB:'rfs^^^  tion. There7 were 121 replies wltli"7  109 opposed and 12 in favor.  Indiscriminate garbage dumping brought the suggestion from  Director Frank West, Gower  Point, that Gibsons should have  compulsory collection. Other directors said the Port Mellon  highway was still a dump  ground. Mayor Peterson said he  felt that Gibsons had no problem. It was hoped that the  RCMP would catch some culprits and produce a court case.  The board adopted the Halfmoon Bay water plan in principle with the idea of implementing it as finances will permit.  As regards the Rosamund road"  water problem if more than 25  consumers would sign up it  could be developed readily.  Labor troubles are costing the  Regional District money, If it  can get men'to line the reservoir basin the cement will have  to be brought in from the United  States which would add to costs.  Arbo Realty company was advised that its trailer established  in Hopkins area is on a temporary permit and that the board  is to seek legal advice whether  condominiums are permissible  under the proposed zoning bylaw.

At first they decided to go on  their own with no" assistance  from, the outside. The name of  the club was Clique but it was  found wiser to be affiliated with  the Kinsmen; therefore it is now  known as Kin-20.  What is Kinw20. It simply  means that Kinsmen are sponsors and the age limit is 20 for  the present time. Kin-20 is a  youth organization helping the  youth of the Sunshine Coast with  .dances once a month.  They try to have the best entertainment,   bands,   etc.   at   a  reasonable price. Kin-20 is more  ,than  just  entertainment.. It is  .hard.work; on the part of the  meWfieWm-or|��nlmF^a<>-"  ing   general   duties.   In   other  words give the Sunshine Coast  a long needed assist which is  organizing youth  entertainment  and involvement on the whole.  How do you become a member of Kin-20. You will have to  seek out one of the Kin-20 members and obtain the Kin-20 bylaws which should be read over  carefully. Go to a few meetings  and find out what the club is doing. Then you can decide whether or not you want to take a  part in their work.  Graduates  celebrate  reverses  Free trips desired  A resolution going the rounds  of school boards was discussed  at Tuesday night's school board  meeting. It concerns transportation of students via ferries on a  complimentary basis while en-  ' gaged in school programs.  The resolution originating with  this district's school board has  been accepted by the B.C. School  Trustees Association for presentation at the annual convention.  It also has the backing of Powell  River and Squamish boards.  The resolution asks that the  B.C. School Trustees Association urge the minister of education to seek ah amendment to  the Public Schools Act and-or  other legislation where by provision can be made for complimentary passage on B.C. Ferries  for groups of students engaged  in curricular or extracurricular  programs when such programs  are authorized by the board of  school trustees.  So far efforts to convince the  department .that this would be  a desirable move have failed to  obtain the required result.  New mail box  A post office outgoing mail  drop box is now in operation in  Sunnycrest area at the point  where rural mail boxes are set  up, James Marshall, Gibsons  area postmaster, announces. It  will be cleared each day at 12  noon and if possible a later hour  will be considered.  At the (main post office on  Gower Point road a drop box  will be installed shortly at the  rear road entrance to allow mail  to be deposited after post office  hours.  Following the graduation  dance at Elphinstone school,  graduates and friends congregated at the home of Mr. and  Mrs. Quarry, Veterans Road,  for the annual all night party. It  is estimated that well over 100  attended. At one point the crowd  numbered 80 with standing room  only. However everyone joined  in the fun and had an enjoyable  time.  Mr. and Mrs. Quarry, with  the help of Mr. andMrs. Floyd  McGregor, Barry Quarry and  Gratia Burns have nothing but  praise for the young people. Mrs.  Quarry stated that these teenagers are to be commended on  their behavior.  AU conducted themselves in  an orderly manner and the  grads enjoyed themselves as  much as Mr. and Mrs. Quarry  enjoyed having them in their  home.  At 6 a.m. Mr. and Mrs. Quarry and the remaining students  were guests for breakfast at the  home of Mr. and Mrs. Alsager,  where 50 were served bacon and  eprgs, pancakes and sausages  and syrup. Mr. and Mrs. Alsager a'so had high praise for the  graduating class.  HOUSING MEETING  The annual general1 meeting of  the Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens' Housing Society will be  held on Friday, June 12 at 8  p.m. in St. Hilda's Church Hall,  Sechelt.  Board  resignation vote  School board Secretary-treasurer J. S. Metzler who proffered  his resignation at the April 23  board meeting withdrew it at  the request of members of the  board.  This occurred at the May 28  meeting when the matter came  up for discussion at an in cam'-  era session. (See editorial on  Page Two).  No announcement has been  made by the board on the deliberations at the meeting but it  is understood the vote on the  motion asking Mr. Metzler to  withdraw his resignation eventually became unanimous.  Conditions in the building industry may force the school  board to accept available accommodation in spite of the district superintendent's aim to get  the board installed in its own  premises.  The issue came before the  school1 board's meeting last  Thursday night when the planning committee's board office  accommodation    was    referred  back to the committee for further study. The committee has  three possibilities, the Lang  block in Gibsons, Clayton's in  Sechelt but not available until  new construction occurs or a  construction offer on a 3-year  lease basis.  Secretary-treasurer J. S. Metz  ler informed board members  that Victoria prefers that available rental space should be used  before proceeding into new construction.  An amended resolution asking  free transportation for students  on B.C. Ferries when on school  ventures will be included in this  year's convention of the provincial school trustees association.  Superintendent Hanna read a  letter of congratulation from  Mr. F. R. Levirs, superintendent  of education, to Ross Bown, a  Langdale Elementary school pupil aged six who had his drawing selected as one of 50 from  British Columbia, to take part in  a contest for the final selection  of a Christmas stamp. The board  will send a letter of congratulations to Ross and to his teacher.  UBC  students  offer education views  Reporting to the school board  at last week's meeting, on a  seminar, at Harrison Hot Springs  . on Education for the '70s.' Trustee Mrs. A. Labonte revealed  tfhat jontti^ ���  being paid to the Indian "education problem.  Later at the same meeting R.  R. Hanna, district superintendent, said that there would be a  June 3 meeting to discuss the  continuation of the Indian integration project.  Two native UOB students offered the Indian point of view  with Nathan Matthews outlining  positive benefits such as a wider association for Indian students and that the education received in public schools is of  better quality than that formerly received. On the negative side  he said the alienation of a student from home life, language  and cultural differences are a  handicap to the Indian in the  competitive school system.  His personal experience was  that the image of the Indian stu  dent, which has been' created  over the years, is not a good or  true-one. He appreciated the  experience of having some Indian teachers because he could  identify with them and look up  to them. He felt that in order to  eliminate a feeling of discrimination   the   teacher  or  person  dealing with the Indian must dis  play a genuine interest in the  person.  Betty Wilson was critical of  the treatment of the Indian in  -th^i&fit^Sh^  fluence of the church and in  many cases Indian department  influence. Improvements she advocated were a revision of text  books, employment of Indian  .teachers, more financial assistance, Indian counsellors and  more Indian students at university.  Ray Hall, regional superintendent of education and Mrs. L. G.  P. Waller, chief superintendent  of Indian schools expressed  views of the department of Indian affairs. It was stated that  Indian Affairs strongly supports  the appointment of Indian counsellors and that the department  is willing to back financially,  special' services for Indian education.  There are at present 121 Indian students attending post-  secondary institutions in B.C. A  credit course has been set up at  UBC for teachers who wish to  specialize in Indian education.  Three Indian students have been  appointed to do counselling  among the natives and UBC has  relaxed entrance requirements  for Indian students to permit  them to proceed to higher learning.  Teachers set up awards  John Ayris, president of the  Sechelt Teachers' Association,  announced at the May membership meeting that several awards were made by the teachers to deserving community organizations. The teachers also  elected officers for the 1970-71  school year.  Donations totalling $900 went  to three different groups, $500  to the Retarded Children's Association fund, $300 to the Recreation Centre of the Sunshine  Coast and $100 to the award-  winning Driftwood Players to  help the local drama group defray their expenses to the B.C.  Drama Festival. The Drama Fes  tival is sponsored by a branch  of the provincial government.  Mr. Ayris also stated that the  membership had also raised its  three student scholarship awards from $150 to $200.  A report from Mrs. Joan Warn,  public   relations   chairman,   ex  pressed pleasure that all four  Indian teacher aides at the Sechelt Elementary School are receiving assistance from the Department of Indian Affairs to  continue their education. She  also voiced appreciation for the  good work done by the aides.  Miss Linda Joe, Miss Darlene  Joe, Mr Tom Paul and Mr. Walter John.  Mr. Ayris also announced that  a dinner honoring retiring teachers will be given at Lord Jim's  on June 11. The teachers to be  honored are Mrs. Eileen Glass-  ford, Mrs. Cloe Day, Mrs. Iris  Smith, Mrs. Jean Fallows and  Mrs. Lois Stannard.  The table officers elected by  the association for 1970-71 were:  Mr. John Burnside, president;  Mr. David Smethurst, vice-president; Mrs. Doris Fuller, secretary and Miss June Wilson,  treasurer. Mr. Ayris will also  serve as a table officer as junior  past president. Coast News, June 3, 1970.  PAUL  Serving the Mt.

Metzler to withdraw his tendered  resignation as secretary-treasurer of the school board should help  a more pleasant relationship in school board affairs.  It should not be taken for granted that the entiire board was  happy because Mr. Metzler had decided he wanted to terminate  his association with the board. It is true a minority welcomed the  resignation. The others felt sorry for Mr. Metzler and the position  in which he found himself.  The Coast News seeks no pat on the back for its unhesitating  support of Mr. Metzler. It felt it was a duty and not a campaign  for or against anybody. The future of this school district was on  the table and there was no use mincing words about-it.  Perhaps the quiet operation of some members of the silent  majority of ratepayers was more effective than they suspected. It  was not necessary for Mr. Metzler to seek a platform on which  to express his feelings. They were evident as the result of the actions of a minority of members on the board. The obviousness of  the situation was crystal clear. At no time did the majority of  board members regard Mr. Metzler's resignation a necessity. The  vote by the majority to accept his resignation was a vote of sympathy coupled with regret.  Now that the situation has been brought to a head and the  board back where it started with Mr. Metzler as secretary-treasurer he should be allowed to fulfill his obligations to the board  and public. Perhaps he will be given the chance to do the job tor  which he was hired. A good many ratepayers are of the opin&on  he has done a good job. Let's hope those vigilant taxpayers will  continue their vigilance and step forward when the need arises  again in the future. .���>;%.  Readers may recall a meeting one year ago when pressure  was evidently on Mr. Metzler and an in camera session was called  for the board to hear a report on the secretary-treasurer by  Clarkson, Gordon & Company covering an analysis of the board's  financial system.  nlformation which came out at the in camera session was referred to at the open public meeting of that night when Trustee Agnes  Labonte asked Trustee Walter Burtnick to explain, to the public  meeting what had. transpired at the closed meeting.  Dr. Burtnick said the -aiidiibors found the secretary-treasurer, 'J7'"'  S. Metzler, was doing an excellent job. The accounting was in good  order and no major changes wore recommended.  Any changes that might be made would be of a minor nature.  The auditors said they were favorably impressed with the secretary-treasurer. Dr. Burtnick added that he hoped this report would  relieve the board of some of its problems.  Before the meeting closed Trustee Douglas mentioned that Mr.  Metzler had been in his post as secretaryrtreasiurer 10 months  and that under the Public Servant act after ^a period of six months  .the office holder, had to be certified in the position. Trustee Douglas and Trustee Mrs. Labonte seconded a motion certifying Mr.  Metzler in his position permanently. The motion passed.  This occurred shortly after Trustee Norman Hough decided to  retire because he found .most of his ideas were voted down by a  narrow majority. Thereupon a move started to have Frank West  selected to fill the Hough vacancy. This resulted at a later meeting in the naming of Frank West and John Matthews as candidates  for the vacated seat. The board vote resulted later in a tie so the  matter was allowed to drop with no replacement chosen. Mrs.  Lome Wolverton and Mr. and Mrs. D. Ganshorn supported Mr.  West and Trustee Don Douglas the candidacy of John Matthews.  The school board finished out the year without anyone in the Hough  seat. -, ���  Perhaps the confrontation of Mr. Metzler with those who prefer someone else will result in a more peaceful future. This remains to be proven. However the district has been saved from having secretary-treasurers shun this area because of unstable conditions.  COAST NEWS  in search  of water  (By STEVEN LEE)  Residents of Pratt Road gathered at the LePage home May  14 for the second meeting this  year concerning the water situation.  Mr. W. Graham, chairman be-  gan-the discussion with a brief  hfstory of the 23 year old water  pipe that services the road. Residents of Pratt Road had been  treated Tike a football, being  lacked' between the Village of  Gibsons and the Regional board,  with neither organization willing  or capable of improving the water situation, he said. A letter  and a delegation had been sent  to the last Regional Board meeting with no satisfactory results,  in fact, the board made it clear  it was in no financial position  to give assistance and probably  would not be for at least five  years.  Mr. Graham {proposed a  change in the connection where  the Pratt Road line joins the village main which would result in  improved water pressure for ev-  ey house on the line. He proposed that the T connection  should be replaced by a Y connection for this, according to  Mr. Graham, would allow more  water to enter the line from the  village main. Mr. Graham also  suggested that three lengths of  6-inch pipe be laid at the north  end of the road. Mr. Graham  then asked Gibsons water commissioner, Aid. Charles Mandelkau, to approve his proposal.  Mr. Mandelkau said the only  way to improve the Pratt Road  water system would be to renew the entire water line, end  to end. This, he said, the village  was not in a position to do.  The village would, however,  begin iminiediately to lay six  inch pipe down the road as far  as the fire hydrant, about 30 ft.  Mr. Mandelkau said. The valves  have already been ordered for  this job and as soon as the parts  are in Gibsons and notice has  been given in the press work  will commence. Aid. Mandelkau,  who had consulted a professional water engineer, said a change  to a Y connection from a T connection would make no difference in the water situation so  this move was not in the village  plans. He suggested that if Pratt  Road joins the village, the village will renew the Pratt Road  line with 6-inch pipe, in stages  as funds become available.  The meeting concluded with  the general agreement that an  official organization should be  formed in the near future to give  Pratt Road residents a stronger  voice in dealing with the Regional Board and the Village.  Mr. Don Andow was elected  president of Pratt Road Ratepayers and Consumers; Mr. S.  Esslemont, vice-president; Mrs.  B. Skellett, secretary; and Dick  Derby, Jim Chaster and Mrs.  LePage are to form a commit-  Itee to look into amalgamation  with the village. ���  A tentative date for the next  meeting was set for Thursday  June 11, at the LePage home.

MEMBERS INCREASE  The New Democratic Party of  British Columbia reports 2,600  members joined in the first 15  days of May, according to Betty MeClurg, chairman of the  convention arrangements committee of the NDP of B.C. This  brings total membership in the  province to 9,300 since the beginning of the year.  The  closing month   (or  is it  : months?) of this session of parliament are apparently going to  . feature a massive debate on water use,  pollution  controls  and  ,the North. Hidden only slightly  below the surface of what promises to be a long debate in the  House of Commons is the role  of ihe new arid more powerful  committees of this  parliament.  "There will doubtless be bleeding.  "���    The bills in question are the  Canada Water Act, and its partner the Northern Inland Waters  Act. These are designed to set  up water-management areas in,  Canada and in the federal territories, where federal and local  officials > will manage water use  and control pollution.  Closely associated is, the amendment to the Fisheries Act,  which aims to immensely wid_Ti  the powers of the Ministry of  Fisheries to control pollution as  it affects fish and men's use of  fish.  Within the same general area  is the Arctic Waters Pollution  Control Zone bill, aimed to extend Canadian jurisdiction up to  100 miles offshore in the Arctic  to control dangerous cargoes of  our own or of foreign ships. And  linked with this one is the Territorial Seas bill, extending Canadian territorial seas to a full  12 miles.  Yet to come before parliament  are amendments to the Shipping  Act which will have an effect  on pollution control of shipping  dn the Atlantic and Pacific.  Of them all, only one has been  through the standing committee  and come back unchanged. This  was   the  Territorial   Seas   bill.  Fisheries committee made major alterations in the Fisheries  . bill. There were three by myself  and others by other Liberals and  Conservative members.  Without boring you with the  technicalities, which are numerous,  our intent was to prevent  ^fisheries legislation from being  ^subservient or secondary in ef-  vfect to   the   federal - provincial  water management zones of Canada.  The bill arrived in a form  closely linked to Canada Water  .Act. It was returned to the  house with all mention of the  Canada Water Act removed,  with definitions altered from  those of Canada Water Act and  with the fisheries minister's  powers focussed (and, hopefully,  increased) on fish, fishermen  and the users of fish or other  products of the sea.  Arctic Pollution Control Act,  which won the unusual unanimous recorded standing vote in  the house on principle, was  slightly altered by an amend-  . merit of Douglas Hogarth (L.-  New  Westminster)  designed to  Letters to editor  A new pamphlet that includes  a reproduction of British Columbia's new Litter Act is being distributed throughout ,the province  Hon. W. K. Kiernan announces.  Produced jointly ��by the department of recreation and conservation and the department of  travel industry, both headed by  Mr. Kiernan, the pamphlet will  be distributed through schools,  conservation groups, anti-litter  and anti-pollution organizations,  tourist information centres,  chambers of commerce and  other outdoors and tourist-oriented bodies.  The pamphlet reproduces in  full the Litter Act which was  passed at the last session of the  provincial legislature. The act  spells out the required disposal  methods for litter as well1 as  sewage or waste from trailers,  campers, portable housing units,  boats and house-boats.  Conservation officers, park officers and forest rangers are  among those designated enforcement officers by the Litter Act.  Violations of the provisions of  the act can result in fines of up  to $500. '  iuiuiuuumnuintti\uiuiniuu��uu\un\u\mm\uuuu\u��uuunnii  PASSPORT PHOTOS  at the Coast News  give prior rights to the claims  of Eskimos in cases of damage.  Canada Water Act was fought  long and hard in committee. It,  too, was amended.  However, since its reintroduc-  tion to commons, no less than 25  more amendments have been introduced by opposition parties.  For the most part these are  amendments which were voted  out during the committee hearings.       .  This may sound like a highly  complex process. It is. And it  involves more than meets the  eye.  In the case of acts extensively  changed in the all-party committees, the government must  now decide whether or not to  amend the bills back to their  original form ��� with the result  that Liberal party committee  members will then be fighting  the move in commons, or accepting them at risk of considerable  disagreements among various  ministers within the cabinet.  Prime Minister; Trudeau may  wish, at times, that he had not  extended the powers of the house  committees as he did when taking office. Life was undoubtedly  simpler for federal cabinets who  conducted all their debates in  secrecy and who could then put  their legislation into a parliamentary Xerox machine and get  out exactly what they put in.

Back in 1898, the quiet backwater settlement of Gibsons  Landing, greeted with mixed  feelings the intrusion of big industry ��� a fish glue factory.  Fred LePage, a nephew of the  founder of the glue industry, after selling out his share of the  family interests back east, arrived in Gibsons just before the  turn of the century with big  plans to establish a glue factory  at Gibsonn. As construction got  underway, local people involved  included Arthur McCall and  Arnold Winegarden. The latter  stayed on to become plant engineer. Son Ted, still in Gibsons  and a daughter Gertie (Mrs.  John Corlett, recently moved to  Haney) recall the trials and tribulations of that ambitious project.  From the beginning the company was beset with problems. A  man by the name of Maroni became the overjambitious manager of the glue works. He occupied the executive house, now  the old Corlett place on the hill  alongside Peninsula Cleaners,  and lost no time in undermining  company management.  He succeeded in this but failed  to obtain the basic formula. The  plant closed down within a year  (1901) of going into production,  in charge of a caretaker, Carl  Linford, until the late fall of  1919 when it was acquired by.  the Corletts.  They converted the three-storey building into family apartments. The booier house and  stack, storage shed on the lower level and warehouse on the  wharf, in dangerous disrepair,  were torn down. The machinery  was removed to Burnette.  Mrs. Corlett in a phone interview from Haney, told the Coast  News the apartments enjoyed a  number of years of popularity  among many Gihsonites who  made it .their early home. In the  30s when the Union Steamships  included Gibsons in their coastal  ports of call, the Corltets became a favorite summer vacation spot with tourists. Many a  romance blossomed on the moon  lit verandahs looking out over  the sound.  During the latter years the  apartment just sort of drifted  into oblivion. Fewer and fewer  tenants occupied suites in the  old place and with the boarding  off of the upper floors, the last  occupants up to two years ago,  included Alex and Marj, Smith,  now residing in the old Corlett  place on the hill.  Ted Winegarden, the son of  Arnold, the plant engineer, and  his sister Ge-rtie (Mrs. John  Corlett) lived in the mill manager's residence for a number  of years.  In recent years Ted met a  member of the LePage family  cruising in these waters and then  living in Vancouver. According  to Mr. Winegarden Sr., the old  plant produced a superior type  of glue that really stuck for  keeps. Les Peterson, the local  historian, several years ago acquired from John Corlett for Gib  sons museum, the last working  trace of the glue works, a section of wood from one of the  mixing vats with an.inch and a  half of glue still adhering strongly to it, 65 years after.  Mrs. Grace Chamberlin, the  first white child to be born1 in  West Howe Sound, and daughter  of the late George Gibson, found  ing squire of this area, well recalls that .smelly old glue factory, when as a chid of ten, on  the way to school, she and her  companions would hurry past  the works, holding their noses  against the stench of rendered  down, vat boiled dogfish. She  also has fond recollections of  dances held in the old plant.  Phil Fletcher, another old timer, recalls the deserted factory  as a favorite rendezvous of his  boyhood pals. Many the time its  walls echoed to the mischievous shouts of succeeding generations of adventurous youngsters  who roamed the echoing corridors at will. "The wonder," Phir  recalls, "is that the place wasn't  burned down many times over  when you think of the shenanigans that went on."  And so ��� in hail' and farewell  to this old familiar landmark, it  can well be said that:  | Dr. J.

As to the statement about the  government of Britain advertising for someone to reduce the  seal herd by shooting 750 seals  ��� well, the surely obvious answer must be that with the evergrowing lust for killing, the natural predators are also being  ruthlessly butchered.

A reception' -was held at Cedars Inn, with the bride's uncle  Dio Creed as M.C. The toast to  the bride was given,by her uncle Don Harris. The bride's table was centred with a three tier  cake baked by her mother and  decorated by Henry's Bakery  and topped with a nosegay of  the bride's colors, lilac and yellow.  Leaving for their honeymoon  at Lord Jim's Lodge, the bride  chose a grey two piece coat ensemble with red carnation corsage.

NEW BAPTIST PASTOR  Bob Allaby, a young man who  recently achieved his D.D. degree will be the new permanent  pastor at Calvary Baptist church  in Gibsons. He obtained his degree on graduation at Acadia  College, University of New  Brunswick recently.. He is from  Sussex, N.B.  A new type secondary school  report card was approved at  Thursday night's meeting of the  school1 board. It was suggested  by Principal T. G. Ellwood of  Elphinstone secondary school.  Its feature is to reduce the amount of work in compiling reports.  Principal Ellwood's type of report will be similar to a five-  sheet carbon filled business form  Outining the proposal to trustees he explained it in the following way:  We have taken all the standard format on the regular report card and consolidated it on  one face of paper 8" x 11". The  format has also been designed  to, accommodate the semester  system.  The report card we propose  would be a five copy type. The  first copy would be kept fin the  school. The second copy would  be sent home as the first report,  the third copy as the second report, the fourth copy as the third  report and the fifth copy as the  final report. Each copy would  contain alt the information of  the previous reports. These reports would not be returned to  the school.  We feel this type of report is  much more efficient than the one  we now use. It will cut in half-  the amount of time the secretaries must spend making duplicate reports and replacing missing reports. It will completely  remove all the time, spent on  collecting, sorting and checking  650 reports three times a year.  It will also remove the opportunity to make transcription errors.  It will also remove the unnecessary task of 23 teachers used to  transcribe information from the  duplicates to the report cards.  Procedures that would be used  with such a report card indicate  increased efficiency.  Secretaries in a single operation will prepare both the reports and the duplicate records.  Teachers in a single operation  will place their marks and comments on both the report cards  and the duplicate records. This  will eliminate many opportunities for transcription errors.  The reports will be issued to  students. A cheaper type of envelope can be utilized with the  new reports.  We would advertise in local  papers prior to issuing the reports so that parents would be  aware the report cards will be  coming home within a few days.  As parents would not have to  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  The Roberts Creek Auxiliary  to the hospital has several catering jobs lined up which will  add to their funds for various  projects.

Parents are always free to contact the school  for a parent-teacher interview  after reports or at any time.  Although the present report  cards are provided free by the  department of education . the  modest cost involved in preparing these new report cards can  presently be covered within the  scope of our general supply budget we feel that we could obtain a two years supply of these  report cards for less than $175  or less than $88 per year. We  would obtain a two year supply  because there is little difference  in the actual cost of buying 700  or 1500 of these report cards.  80th BIRTHDAY  On Monday, May 25, an enjoyable afternoon was spent at  the home of Mrs. Ann Plough,  when neighbors gathered to celebrate the 80th birthday of Mrs.  James Thomson of Gower Point  Rd.

Harry Hill fund  closed; proceeds  for hospital room  At the meeting on May 21 in  Sechelt Legion Hall, Sechelt's  Senior Citizens Association,  Branch 69, closed the Harry Hill  Memorial Fund. The proceeds  will be given to St. Mary's Hospital to completely furnish a  room in the new wing, in memory of Harry Hill.  The association considered  that such a room would be most  fitting to honor a man who had  spent a great part of his life in  helping those who needed help,  particularly elderly persons. Mr.  Hill started the first O.A.P.O.  Branch 96. This branch later became the present Senior Citizens Association Branch 69. Mr.  Hill was a prime mover in both  organizations.  At the same meeting a" minute's   silence   was   observed  in  memory  of  three   recently  deceased members, Mrs. S. J. Rid-  dell,   Mrs.  Blanche  Bates  and  Mrs. Violet Campbell1. New mem  bers joining in May are Mrs.  Jean Hamon,  Mrs.  Betsy Palmer, Mrs. Alma  Rogers,  Mrs.  Elsie Julian, Mrs. Lillian Wood,  and Mrs. Mildred Grain. In honor of his 80th birthday, Mr. May-  nard  Dubois   of  Greene   Court  was the recipient of a gift, accompanied   by   members'   best  wishes.  Canon Greene gave a short  talk asking for new members to  the Senior Citizens Housing, and  for a renewal of any lapsed  memberships. The annual meeting will be held on June 12.  A letter was read from Mrs.  Rose Gowland, a recent member, who has moved tp Kereme-  os, inviting any members to call  and see her any time they are  in that area. The monthly raffle  was won by Mrs. Lilian Swanson of Gibsons.  Plans for a tea and bazaar in  the fall .are already underway,  with Mrs. Olive McGregor acting  as   convenor.   Mrs.   Nellie  Whaites informed the members  of a camp holiday, available for  elderly people, at Camp Fircom  on Gambier Island, starting June  15 at a nominal charge. Any senior citizen desiring a delightful  inexpensive holiday in a beautiful setting, should contact Mrs.  Whaites for further information.  The annual convention of the  Senior Citizens 'association will  be held on June 9, 10 and 11 in  North Vancouver, and is open to  any interested person. The resolutions  to be  presented were  read and discussed in order to  obtain the opinion of the members. The delegates to the convention are Mrs. Olive McGregor and Mrs. Mildred Whittaker.  Following   the   business   session, a delightful program consisting of first a duet by Mrs.  Trudy Edmunds and Mrs. Dorothy Stockwell, who sang In the  Garden   accompanied   by  Mrs.  Hazel Evans. Mrs. Liliian Wood,  a new member, recently of Hull,  Yorkshire, England, gave a humorous recitation entitled Adam  and Mary. A short sing-song led  by Mrs. Dorothy Stockwell, with  Mrs. Ruby Hatcher at the piano  followed.  In accordance with Pioneer  and Elderly Citizens Week, from  �� June 1 to June 7, a non-denominational service will be held in  the Sechelt Legion Hall on Sunday, June 7 at 2:30 p.m. Pastors  from the area will participate,  and all persons are urged: to attend to honor the pioneers of  this province.

With  pany against whom the Guild is  striking.  tween the time of oil delivery  and the picket line appearing  was that the Guild had agreed  to allow Port Mellon to use the  oil they already had in the tank  and a certain' amount of reluctance on the part of the Guild  to officially declare the oil hot.  When the official1 policy statement came from the Guild  branding the oil hot, local Guild  members acted within hours to  organize and throw a picket line  around the mill'.  Local 297 members who had  already expressed their feelings  in this matter at a general meeting a day or two earlier emphatically refused'to cross the line.  One or two minor incidents that  cropped up were caused by misunderstandings and were quickly squelched by members of the  executive.  A special general meeting was  called on Tuesday, May 19, at  2:30 p.m. to sound out feelings  of the general membership regarding the picket line and work  stoppage. Over 300, members of  the local attended, after being  brought up to date by President  Corley, first vice-president Pe  terson and; trustee and standing  committee member D. Hill. A  motion from the floor effectively demonstrated the unity of the  local inthis -natter.  The reason for the delay be-  On Wed., May 20, injunctions  were obtained against the guild  and Local 297. These were served at approximately 4:45 p.m.  and shortly afterward management began calling crews for a  mill startup.  The Giiildi however, stated they  would refuse to obey the injunctions.  Local 297's executive then began again' to man the Union  Hall on a 24-hour basis and three  radio cans belonging to Local  members were brought into action to give constant communication with the picket line so  that we would be instantly aware of any change in the situation there and could advise the  hundreds of callers* at the hall  accurately what the situation  was. It was imperative that the  Local know immediately if the  picket line was lifted for any  reason.  At (Guardian) press time, this  is where we stand��� so far all  members of Local 297 have re  fused to cross the picket line.  The executive have kept crews  intact and are keeping a 24-hour  watch on the picket line so they  are in a positioi* to keep members up to date oa the situation.

Point of law  (By  a Practicing Lawyer)  Question: There is a lot of  talk now-a-days about female liberation and equal rights for  women. Are men and women in  an equal position before the  Taw?  Answer: No. Men are in an  inferior position.  By common law a man must  support his wife. A wife does  not have to support her husband.  Moreover, a woman may run up  debts in her husband's name for  the necessities of life, including  food, clothing and shelter, etc.  ���the law regarding her as being her husband's agent for the  purpose of those domestic duties  usually falling under the care of  the wife. A husband, however, is  not an agent for his wife.  The Divorce Act, in theory,  places a divorced husband and  wife on the same status as far  as maintenance is concerned. It  is, however, a man who almost  always pays the costs of the  lawsuit, despite the general rule  -that "The loser pays vthe*win*-~  ner's costs." In the divorce action John Doe versus Mary Doe  and Richard Roe, on grounds of  adultery, Richard Roe will be  ordered to pay the costs if John  Doe can prove Richard Roe  knew Mary Doe to be a married  woman at the time of the adultery. If John Doe cannot prove  this, Mary Doe does not have to  pay the costs. In a similar divorce action, Betty Roe versus  Richard Roe and Mary Doe,  Richard Roe pays the costs. In  divorce actions on other grounds  a wife successfully suing receives an order that her husband must pay the costs. A successful1 husband cannot, however collect costs from his wife.  In a quarrel over custody of  children, the wife is almost always successful even though  she has committed adultery.  Where a child is born to unmarried parents., the father  must support the child or at  least contribute to its support,  but has no right of joint custody  or guardianship and has not  even any right to visit the child.  Under the Married Women's  Property Act, a wife may sue to  have determined any question  between her and her husband  regarding the title or possession  of any property.

A woman may sue her husband for damage to the wife's  property. If a wife damages her  husband's property he is prohibited by law from suing her.  By the Wives' and Children's  Maintenance Act a wife may  cause proceedings to be commenced against her husband in  the family division of the provincial court for support for herself and children and the court  will provide a prosecutor for her  . without charge. A husband does  not have a similar remedy despite any differences in the relative health or wealth of the parties.       ..;."������.���:'���.
