 ProYinsIal  Library,  VIeioria;   B.   C.  SERVING   THE   GROWING   SUNSHINE   COAST  Published at Gdbsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 23  Number 11, March 18, 1970  10c per copy  ftittittuuitt\ittui\\u\imuuMtttttt\\MiMmiuui\ttiu\iiiuu\\iw  Ex-mayor     Gift tax free  reviews  sewer plan  Editor: X would like to point  out a few facts for some people  that don't seem to remember.  :''".'W$en~r'HKe'nigh' school was  built in " Gibsons some years  back, a permit for an effluent  line was issued by the Pollution  Control board to the school  board for an outfall in the Gibsons harbor. . The permit was  granted with permission for the  village to tie in Marine Drive  over as far as the Co-op Store  east and as far as the J.B. Furniture Store west.  Approximately four years ago  the Pollution Control board and  the department of public health  wrote to the village council stalling 'that the bacteria count  was was getting too high in the  Bay area," not caused solely by  the Affluent line but also septic  draining down the ditches from  up the hill, there was also an increase in hepatitas. As sewage  disposal is not a school board  function, they requested the  , village to look into the possibility of accepting this responsibility.  This was discussed by council,  ami it was decided to hire a professionalengineer to. look into  the design and costs'of a proper  sewer system. The first thing  the engineer did was go to the  Pollution' Control board, ,and the  department; of \puhiie health to  discuss "with them what was required as far^as 4he treatment  and I know; for a fact that he  consulted the Pollution Control  board on every phase of the  design.  Mr. West seems to persist in  implying that the village council  decided what type of treatment  and where the outfall would go.  You don't hire an accountant to  design a sewer system, you  would hire professional engineers who are trained in this  field.  As far as the secrecy goes,  when I was village representative on the Regional board re:  treatment and outfall, 1 told  the board that as soon as it was  possible there would be a public  meeting held to inform them of  the proposed system.  This was  done.     The  United  church hall was rented, council  was present, along with the engineer who designed the system  and dept.  of public health .officials   to   explain   the   system  and to answer questions. I fail  to see what is siiTsecretive about  this.    It would seem that those  ���present didn't want to listen or  .accept what the experts had to  ��� say. ''     ���'  The   village, council    doesn't  want  to see pollution anymore  than anyone else, but it is quite  y obvious  that  something has to  be done about the problem, and  I feel that the council has taken  the proper steps and hired the  right people to do the job, and  if anyone is  at fault it is the  Pollution    control    board   and  Dept. of Public Health for not  accepting  their  responsibilities.  There   is  one  thing I   notice'  about' all   these  demands   for  prevention  of pollution  that no  one seems to mention, the cost.  At the present time this burden  is carried by the local taxpayer  and this can become astronomical as  these  treatment plants  are   expensive   and  it needs  a  lot of people in.a community to  share the cost.  I think all organizations in the  area should be working towards  the senior government accepting a bigger share of the financial responsibility, instead of  fighting among themselves.  ���Mr. Fred Feeney, ex mayor of  Gibsons.  - Gibsons United church $10,-  000 Winnifred Doherty bequest  will be tax free under the new  Bill 11, an act to amend the Succession act, Hon. Isabel Dawson  revealed after second reading of  the bill took place on Friday in  the legislature.  On her way home to Powell  River Saturday morning, Hon.  Mrs. Dawson dropped in to the  Coast News office and outlined  details with the editor.  ..a*  Crosswalk  unchanged  When the provincial roads department shortly paints crosswalk markings at Gibsons Elementary school it will be the  last time this department will  perform that duty, the school  board learned at Thursday  night's meeting last week. The  reason is that as both sides of  the area are now part of the village of Gibsons it will be a municipal job next time,     v  The roads department refused  the request for no-passing traffic lines in the school area maintaining that the length of time  such a ruling was necessary  each day did not warrant a 24  hour ban on such passing.

AU that  Mr. Wiren managed to save  was some furniture from one  room and clothing.  The outbreak occurred during  his absence and as there was  no wiring in the house it is surmised the fire came from a  wood stove or perhaps the chim  riey.  The home which was built  back in 1905 has had some additions to it since then. The original house Mr. Wiren said  was built from hand hewn cedar  with the siding all planed by  hand. Five guns were lost in  the fire.  Mr. Wiren received a cheque  for $100 from the Gibsons Kiwanis emergency fund within a  short time after the fire. Some  insurance was carried.  SALARY PROBLEMS  Nanaimo school board has  asked this district's school  board to consider an action started by the Nanaimo board for  support of province wide salary  negotiations. Along with this  the district board'has a suggestion to consider from the South  Coast branch of the trustee association asking for a brief on  salary analysis. The board now  has both items under study as  a result of brief discussion at  last Thursday night's meeting  of the board.  SEEK FIREBALL  Pender Harbor Fire Protection district has appealed to the j  district school board for use of  school property for construction  of a firehall and a suggestion  was made at last Thursday  night's board meeting that a lot  across from the school be subdivided for this purpose.  The problemwas turned over  to the planning committee  Call Easter Sunday meeting  In Gower Point sewage split  An Easter Sunday meetings  at 2 p.m. in Gibsons Legion hall  has been called for by the Gowi!  er Point Property Owners association at the request of mem-;  bers who oppose the association  action in withdrawing objections-]  to Gibsons sewage plan.  Frank West has asked for a;  meeting with the announced ob-;  ject of deposing Raymond i  Hull as president because -of;  his withdrawal of objections to {  Gibsons sewage plan. Mr. West {  is reported to-have maintained;  withdrawal of opposition oc-:  that the meeting at which the ;  curred   was  unconstitutional.     -.*  The recent bulletin issued by 1  the    association     announces -aS  The budget will not allow for  hostesses on the Horseshoe Bay  Langdale ferry run and extra  trips at night are not worthwhile  So said a letter from Monte Aldous manager of the ferry system in answer to a Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce  letter requesting both. ������.���;..  It was read at Monday night's  chamber dinner meeting in; Cedar's Inn where close to 50 persons heard the Chairman Dick  Blakeman say ; that the chamber was still going to make a  .toise and get something more  definite. Mayor Wally Peterson  volunteered the information that  council was also-; sending a letter  back to Mr. Aldous and suggested, both should get there at the  same time^Mr^. Aldous\ytJas,vre)-;  viously ask^  council and settle some matters.  The- pollution board wrote it  had received the .chamber's letter supporting Gibsons application for a sewer system and the  information in the letter would  be brought to the attention of  the proper officials when a final  decision is under consideration.  Chairman of the tourism committee, George McNicol informed the board the Sunshine Coast  Tourist association recently  wound up its affairs at Powell  meeting for Easter Sunday and  says:    . ���  '  Article 7 (2) of the Association's constitution provides that  special meetings may be called  upon written request signed by  at least ten members in good  standing.  Such a request was received  on Llarch 0. TI:e purposes of the  meeting are to discuss the following questions:     , f  (1) Correspondence relating  to the request from the Village  of Gibsons that-in view of a  motion to include the treatment  plant in the first phase of the  plan we withdraw our objections  to the sewage outfall at Gospel  Rock. -  stirs ire  River and no longer exists.

It is desirable that there  should be no undue delay in  holding this meeting. But it has  been pointed out to me that a  number of our members are  not: full-time residents of Gower. Point. Calling a meeting on  very short notice would prevent  the attendance of those nonresident members, and deprive  them of their right to participate in the business of the Association.  To give non-resident members a reasonable opportunity of  attending with full-time residents, the. meeting will be held  on Sunday, March '29, at 2 p.m.  at, Legion Hall, Gibsons.  Any member unable to attend  the'; special meeting may complete a proxy form.  := The following letter V turned  into the Coast News by Mrs. P.

The school board has received  information from the minister  of education that it can proceed  with Referendum 10. It is likely  the vote may take place sometime in May.  This referendum involves construction of further science  rooms at Elphinstone school to  cost in the region of $122,000  plus $143,000 for improvement of  the elementary school situation  at Sechelt. The board has also  been advised it can go ahead  with sketch plans for an addition at Langdale school.  Other matters that concerned  the school board at its meeting-  Thursday night of last week included the passing of a brief for  bus transportation in the Porpoise Bay area to the transportation committee for its consideration. D.M. Sutherland appeared on behalf of residents  in the area and asked for assistance or a bus service.  Mr. Sutherland was informed  that under the circumstance that  if he was granted what he wanted there would be plenty of other such cases demanding the  same. e  Ben Lang of Sechelt, owner of  the block which housed the  the school board before it  moved to the BjC. Telephones  building, offered the same space  to the board. Use of the Harris  block was mentioned but it was  regarded as being too small. In  the meantime board members  will meet with the Regional District board to see what can be  done about joint premises . for  both boards.  Trustee Rev. Barry Jenks reporting on a meeting with the  Ser Xelt Advisory committee on  In<r in affairs said that, Ray  Ha! of the Indian Affairs. de-  pa) :nent mentioned there would  be a gradual phase out of financial support for teacher aides in  this branch of education. The  board will seek information as  to whether there will be a continuation of the integration program.  The Retarded Children's1 association will be told it.can erect  a portable building on Gibsons  Elementary school grounds but  the.board will foe in no way responsible for costs of installing,  operating Or maintenance.  Resignations of Mrs. Cloe  Day, retiring, Mrs. Lois Stan-  nard also retiring and Mrs.  Jo Crane were accepted. Board  members wished Mrs. Day and  Mrs. Stannard every happiness  in their retirement and thanked  them for their services in the  field of education.  A motion that minutes of the  policy meeting be approved as  circulated was passed with Trus  tee Bernie Mulligan voting  against and Trustee Dr. W.  Burtnick abstaining. A special  committee will meet to revise  the format of the board's policy  book.

We appreciate the ' changes  made by the Village of Gibsons  in the amended brief dated February 25, 1970 but because it is  easier and less costly to plan  for long range sewage disposal  than to correct polluted conditions, our concern has been, and  still is,. that every aspect be  studied in order to determine  where and how sewage disposal  may cause the least harm to the  environment.  We regret that what could  and should have been a co-operative discussion of the best way  to solve mutual problems has  been allowed to degenerate into acrimony and character assassination. A check into files -  s will reveal that there has at  \o time been any hostility on  our part and that attempts to  meet with the Village have been  turned down. We know that you  understand the complexity of  the problem and we believe that  you will agree with us that the  whole issue is too important to  be confused by cheap political  manoeuvering..  We therefore request that our  need for a judicial hearing by  the Pollution Control Branch be  recognized, and in order to contribute to the right atmosphere  for such a hearing the residents  of Gower Point will refrain from  further public discussion in the  interim to allow emotions to  subside.   (50  signatures)  PASSPORT  OFFICE  r  A regional passport office is  now operating in Vancouver according, to an advertisement in  the Vancouver paper Express  of Saturday. The address is the  Rayonier building, ground floor  1111 West Georgia St. and its  phone number is 666-1221.   ,  The advertisement states that  this office will assist applicants  in emergencies or having difficulty in completing their applications forms. This office is not  equipped to deal with normal  passport applications, the advertisements reads. These  should be mailed in the provided  addressed envelope to the Passport Office, Ottawa 4, Ontario.  Regional  attitude  changes  Mayor Wally Peterson informed Gibsons, council at Tuesday  night's meeting that the Sunshine Coast Regional District  board has officially withdrawn  its objection to the Gibsons sewage system project.  The Regional District board  told Mr. W. N. Venables, chairr  man of the provincial Pollution  board, who arranged to meet  with the Regional board that it  had forced Gibsons into the secondary treatment plan and was  happy about the whole thing.  Dew Jones, Pollution Control  board engineer was also present  with Mr. Venables. Mayor Peterson said that Director Frank  West, who had raised considerable of the commotion involving the Regional board, was not  present. Mayor Peterson said he  judged from this that "they did  not want to learn too much."  He was referring, to those supporting Mr. West. -'<  Mr. Venables said the department had a staff of 30 engineers  who liked to do any judgment  oh sewer systems themselves. He  maintained in view of the Re-  gionai;,District board's attitude  that it would not allow anything  other than secondary sewage  treatment systems for the area  that it should first have applied  for"such action.. ;;:;  Mr; ; Venables;/* regarded jjec^  ^'Inlpa^^atm  flexible enough /or this area land  that the boa rd. w ou I d regre t jts  action as some areas could not  afford treatment plants. Each  area was different and the  board's stand could hold back  future development, he said:  After hearing the mayor's report on the meeting with Mr.  Venables council gave, three  readings to Bylaw '211, the Pollution Control bylaw covering  installation of the sewage and  treatment systems. The bylaw  is now approved by council and  following third reading goes  back to Victoria for final approval. The provincial health  department has given its provisional approval of the system  and treatment plant.  Seek change  for PTA fund  .in 1962 a fund was set up by  the Parent Teachers' Association Council to reward and assist students graduating from.  Pender Harbor and Elphinstone  Secondary schools. At that time  it was called the PTA scholarship and bursary loan fund and  started  with $1,793.  Since none of the schools in  the district now has a Parent  Teachers association, another  legally constituted body should  be formed to handle the manage  ment these funds. A meeting,  will be held in Elphinstone Sec-;  ondary School, Room 123, at 8  p.m. Wed. March 18. Anyone interested in discussing this project should attend. Notices are  also being sent to the organizations of the district in the hope  that the executive officers will  see that someone represents  their organization.  The fund has provided seven  scholarships of $250. and given  loans to ten students varying  from $50 to $750.

They crop  up in what milady wears. Back in what are generally termed the  good old days, milady had to contend with wool, cotton, linen and  silk, generic names of natural fibres. -  Today it is a different story. According to Paul Langlois, par-*  liamentary secretary to the minister of consumer and corporate  affairs, when he moved Bill S-20 in the house of commons, the  generic names of man-made fibres, to be defined in new regulations, are acrylic, modacrylic, polyester, rayon, acetate, saran,  azlon, nytril, nylon, rubber, spandex, vinal, olefin, vinyon, metallic, glass and anidex. These 17 generic names cover a multitude of  trade names.  Some of these polyesters are sold as Avlin, Diolin, Encron,  Force!, Kodel, Nucron, Talan, Tiejan, Tergal, Teritol, Terlenka,  Teteron and Trevira. Bewilderment reigns supreme with today's  lists of milady's wear.  The point of the bill Mr. Langlois explained was an'act res-  pecttag the labelling, sale, importation and advertising of consumer textile articles. The complexity of today's finery for milady is a  problem when it conies to matching name against name but now  that generic names can be established with intelligent labelling  milady might be able to discern what she is buying, if she remembers generic names.  perusal of Hansard, the Ottawa parliamentary record of debates, as it arrives from day to day does reveal some interesting  items including today's vast field of synthetics. Mr, Langlois'  speech on moving second reading of this bill does contain a fair  amount of new information. He says there are over 2,000 trade  names for man-made fibres. Here are some more: Arnel, Antron,  Ayisco, Avril, Nulex, Nypel, Nytelle, Fortrel, Verel and Quana. So  along with the trade names mentioned earlier, no wonder Mr.  Langlois thought the bill might narrow the communication gap between the consumer and the manufacturer. Thank heaven a rose is  still, a.'rose'.       .  By STEVEN LEE  Internal activities of Elphinstone Secondary school are, at  the best of times, not easily put  . into words.  Today the task is  even more difficult, but essential. The time has come when  all   students,  parents  and   the  general  public  must be  made  aware of the deteriorating situation within these walls.  Here  is the story of the break-down of  democracy, the resignation of a  president and the down fall of  a school with potential for greatness.  For four years I have watched  this institution recklessly tumble  downwards toward disintegration. For four years I have  watched this decline grow greater and greater. For four years  I have watched 90 percent of the  persons living within these walls  stand idly by and let the roof  cave-in, while only a handful  care enough to patch the cracking'plaster and struggle for order and unity.  Six hundred people forced to  live and work together must de-  Elphie honors  duties act  ���i$e^nd; readme  provincial legislature last week set at rest the fears of some members of Gibsons United Church congregation who feared that some  of the $10,000 Winnifred Doherty bequest would be absorbed by  taxes. However this did not materialize for which these people  are truly thankful.  The government believes a broad base for taxation is the most  equitable method to raise the funds necessary to carry out essential services provided by government. It considers that succession  duties must form a part of this base in respect to our more wealthy  citizens, but that exemptions be provided of sufficient worth to  eliminate the vast majority from having to pay any succession  duties whatsoever. .���"������,���  The government is aware that the thrifty, industrious and prudent citizens of our society need encouragement to continue their  contribution to the economy of the province. For this reason, this  bill increases exemptions presently in force toy raising the amount  allowed for pensions or annuities from $100 to $250 a month and  completely exempting a family home passing to close relatives.  The British Columbia Succession Duties will, therefore, in future, only apply to the very large estates as the generous basic  exemptions outlined above eliminate most beneficiaries. In the  case of the larger estates subject to duties, the government is still  prepared to forgo its revenues up to 10% of the net estate where  donations are made to charities. Of course further funds can also  be left to charities after payment of duties. It must be rememfoer-  ed that succession duties enter the consolidated revenue fund and  are available for social service expenditures on a priority as determined by the province.  In the past, exemptions allowed for religious, charitable or educational purposes have been in part subject to the minister in his  absolute discretion. If is now proposed in this bill to abolish the-  minister's discretion, and to broaden the exemptions to include  those organizations qualifying for exemption under the Estate Tax  Act of Canada to the extent of 10% of net value, which precedent  is contained in the Income Tax Act of Canada. It is further proposed to allow this exemption back to April 1* 1968, to any estate  where duty was paid on a gift which would qualify under the new  section.  Poem with a moral!

The development of these factors has not occured. Instead,  the chances of them becoming  reality have lessened each year.  Why?  Part of the answer is apathy.  This entire area seems to breed  apathy. (Take a look at the percentage figures of the voter turn  out for the school referendum  and municipal elections.) Apathy reigns supreme within this  school. No one seems to care  about community spirit yet everyone expects the rewards of  community cooperation.  There are a few who are willing to carry, the burden of hard  work and responsibility, to ben-'  efit all, but these people are a  very small minority. The plague  of apathy is not confined to students and teachers. The public  too, should be deeply ashamed  of its apathy toward this school,  which is second only to the pulp  mill in importance to this area.  Certain members of the local  press who insist of fabricating  exaggerated wild tales which reflect a bad image upon this  school, should be condemned to  the highest degree for their irresponsibility. Results of such  tales are borne by the; entire  school and create even more of  a burden for the civic-minded  minority. The reckless downward plunge will continue until  community spirit replaces apathy.        .-..'.  The break-down of democracy  in this school can be directly attributed to the general apathy  here. Democracy will not work  unless people care about good  government and community betterment. If people don't care  about good government, how  much will they care when they  go to the federal and provincial  election polls��� if they go at all?  Apathy and the failure of democracy leaves the door open for  other types of government.  And last of all, the resignation  of the president..  In June 1969, Don Smith was  elected to the office of president  of Elphinstone Secondary school.  He began his term with determination and great expectations, in the hope that he and  his council might pull this  school back together again.  Today, nine months later, he  has announced his resignation  from office. The school continues On its downward plunge-  not because former president .  Smith failed in his duties, but  because the combination of forces working against him proved  too much for one person to bear  alone.  With most of his cabinet shirking their responsibilities, with     ;  various students, teachers,  the  administration   and the   public  pressuring    him, with    apathy  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  As since last Valentine's Day  And your return from the south;  Dentine came,  The town is just one fresh mouth.

Moral of poem: Love is no longer dean from-the heart, just  "clean from the mouth." By BONNIE ALLEY  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons council emerged victorious in its battle to have its  $12,500 . tax collecting limit  raised to $25,000 when such leg-  isation was passed in the legislature.  Reluctance by members appeared when the Sunshine Coast  Tourist association executive decided to increase membership  rates.  Bourrie and McLellan were  awarded a 'contract to build  Gibsons municipal hail at a cost  approximating $35,000.  Pressure to have Gibsons water supply extended to premises  outside the village was exerted  at a Board, of Trade meeting  and William Price decided to  head a committee to see what  could be done. <;  10   YEARS  AGO  T.C. Routledge Gravel company spoke to Gibsons Board of  Trade members;on his proposal  to take gravel out by barge in  Gower Point area. Residents  there have expressed their opposition.  Barry MacDonald, district  health officer urged Gibsons  council to institute a controlled  pickup and garbage disposal'service.  At a meeting which discussed  the dangers of nuclear bomb  fall out, 65 persons attended.

Silly wrong tales were blamed  for opposition to sending Pender Harbor pupils to Gibsons  high school, by School Trustee  Mrs. L.S. Jackson in commenting oh Pender Harbor opposition. <  Fighting down,opposition Gibsons council decided to go ahead  with a fireball    oh* the pump"  house property.  working against him and with  his scholastic achievement seriously threatened, Mr. Smith  has resigned.  With) President Smith gone,  how long before the others who  are trying to hold things together, collapse too?  Does his resignation mean the  death blow and the final collapse of all order and unity within this school? Will there be another chance to divert from the  last great downward plunge?  One thing we do know. In losing Don Smith as president we  have lost one of the few persons  both willing and capable of putting this school back on its feet.  Let'us all, from the bottoms of  our hearts, wish the new President, Miss Denise Littlejohn, the  best of luck and offer her our  full cooperation for the coming  three months. She will need it..  for her sake and ours.  Blake C.

That would not be quite true.  Over the years we developed  two games. They never varied,  they never changed and they too  became part of the ceremonial  of our lives .'���"���.  The development of the first  of these games started with my  noticing that Spot was not in  his accustomed place next to the  heater. I thought that's funny  that he should go back to the  kitchen while we are in here. I  looked in the kitchen but he  wasn't there. I asked Jean if  she had put him out, no she  hadn't. Somehow it annoyed me.  If he was going to come in the  living room he would have to  stay on his paper.  I started calling and looking  for him. He remained absolutely  still and it took me a few minutes to find him all hunched up  amongst Jean's shoes in the  darkest corner of the, closet. I  realize how wrong it is to ascribe human qualities to animals yet I'll swear that he had  a grin on his face and that he  probably was thinking. "Boy  did I fool you". I picked him up  and put him on his paper where  he immediately went to sleep.  Little did I realize that another  custom had been born, one that  I would treasure and enjoy.  About two weeks later Spot  disappeared again, but this time  I was on to the game; I made  a great fuss calling him loudly,  banging doors and tramping  about and finally I went to the  shoe section of the dark closet  and there he was waiting to be  found. While giving him a verbal  lashing, gently I picked him up  and gently I laid him down on  his paper close to the heater.  An old fool of a man and an  old fool of a cat playing make  believe hide and go seek, both  completely aware that it was  pure make believe. This glori-  ��� bus "game wars 'played once or  twice a month for many, many  years.  We had another game which  also   became   almost   a   ritual,  but this one took me by surprise  and  truth  to   tell,   scared   me.  One    evening    three    or    four  months  after  Spot had started  using' the  living   room,   I was  standing in front of the heater  daydreaming,     when suddenly,  with no forewarning whatever he  jumped some three feet in the  air, landed at my-feet, the personification    of    violence.    He  looked  three times his normal  size, his tail was as big as my  arm,   his   claws  were- out  half  an inch and his eyes were completely wild. "My God", I said,  "The animal is gone mad". He  pounced on my right foot with  destructive fury, jumped back,  pounced again, shook, tore, bit  and destroyed. I did nothing: I  was  appalled and stunned but  also aware that I felt absolutely  no pain. I was wearing  pair of  prized maroon slippers at the  time and I remember thinking  "Goodbye slippers". But I felt  no pain, just a gentle buffetting  of my right foot. How long did  this episode last? I don't know,  twenty seconds, two minutes, I  don't know.  As suddenly as the paroxism  had started it ended and Spot did  what he had never done before,  he threw himself down, rolled  against the foot that he had so  violently attacked. Gingerly I  rubbed his stomach with my  left foot, he purred for a few  seconds and contentedly went  back to his side of the heater. I  took off my slipper, there wasn't  a mark on it, I took off my  sock, not a thread was pulled,  I looked at my ankle, not a sign  of a scratch. A new. game, a  new ritual was being created.  It took place two or three times  each winter and I frankly admit  that I felt a twinge of fear each  time it did happen.  There was one further thing  that invariably drew him away  from the heater. Much to my  amusement and understandable  glee he disapproved, no, he resented and was jealous of Jean's  occasional longish telephone  visits. The telephone was in the  den adjoining the living room,  it would ring, Jean would go to  the den leaving the door open  and begin her conversation.  Spot would fidget on his paper,  settle down again determined  to ignore the whole thing. The  conversation would continue, he  would sit up and look at me as  if to say "What kind of a man  are you to let such nonsense  go on". I ignored him, I enjoyed  the hassle but I wanted no part  of it. Finally he could stand it  no longer, he would cross the  living room, sit up at the den  door, the picture of righteous  indignation.  What made the whole thing  doubly amusing is that it annoyed Jean, she would see him  and there would be a change  in the tone of her voice, she  would turn in such a way as to  avoid seeing him and resume  the conversation. Eventually the  telephone would be replaced on  the cradle and out would come  Jean full of empty threats and  passing fury. "Jules why didn't  you put that cat out". Spot  would humbly return to his  place aware that abuse is the  usual reward for duty well done.  If they disagreed over the  telephone they were in complete  and happy agreement about  sweeping and vacuuming. Jean  always used a nylon broom and  the minute Spot heard it he  would stand in the middle off  the kitchen floor and wait, the  sweeper would soon be there.  He would brace himself as best  he could on the waxed lino and  Jean would sweep him from the  tip of his nose to the tip of his  tail, and I mean sweep, sometimes I thought part of the hide  would come off. If he liked being swept, vacuum cleaning  brought on sheer ecstacy. He  would stand perfectly still, and  Jean, using the rough vacuum  brush would give him such a  going over as no rug ever received. After the vacuuming  was finished, he would groom  himself thoroughly, be let out  and go and sit on the front step  balustrade as if to say "Look,  this is what a self respecting  cat should look like".  . For several of the years that  we were graced with his company Jean and T worked in the  village and were away a good  deal of the day. He did not seem  to mind or to miss us particularly; cats like some solitude,  yet he must have been conscious of our absence.

Here again  routine was created, he would  get up as we got out of the. car  and slowly start towards the  front door. He would precede  us to the door, Jean would unlock the door and he would be  first over the threshold. If the  weather was nice he walked  through the house to the porch  and quietly waited while Jean  prepared our supper, if the weather was really bad he would  jump on his kitchen chair and  doze until the food was ready.  We did exactly what we wanted  in the ways that he gently dictated.  One of my winter jobs was to  cut firewood for the cook stove  and the fireplace. Any half de  cent day would find me contentedly bucking wood with a four  foot one-handed crosscut saw.  In this too Spot took a part, not  a very active part but"a part  nonetheless. I Would be mech-  nically   pulling   my   saw   back  and forth when I would suddenly  know that he had come to keep  Coast News, March 18, 1970.   3  me company.  I wouln't see him at first but  I knew how to find him. If the  sun was out I would look at the  sunny spots nearby, if that didn't  show him up I would look at  the sunny pockets out of the  wind, and there in the most  comfortable place in the immediate vicinity I would find him.

RED CROSS  IS ALWAYS THERE  WITH YOUR HELP  + ISABEL WRITES  Rebekahs greet president  The Morrow Royal Commission report on the liquor laws  in British Columbia was tabled  recently in the legislature by  Provincial Secretary Wesley  Black, and it recommended wide  reforms.  One of these recommendations  which will be particularly favorable for the Mackenzie riding,  is that licensed hotels or restaurants should be used as liquor stores, to provide a service to people in remote areas  of the province. This was a recommendation I had put before  the commission, and I wajs  pleased to see it included in the  report.  Drinking on Sundays and election days, the licensing of neighborhood pubs, sidewalk cafes,  beer gardens in parks iaucL  around swimming pools, as well  as drinking in hotel rooms, were  other far-reaching recommendations of the Morrow Report,  which marked the first time  since 1952 that drinking laws in  British Columbia have been subjected to intensive review.  The commission chairman,  Judge Charles W. Morrow, as  Well as Archbishop Martin M.  Johnson and Teamster's Union  official Ed Lawson, said they  were unanimous in their recommendations, and that they  had followed the middle course.  One of the strong recommendations of the Commission urged  the government to appoint a  cabinet minister to head a crash  program for prevention, education, treatment, and rehabilitation of those who abuse alcohol.  In terms of human degradation,  broken homes and broken hearts  shattered wills and damaged intellects, accidents and tragedies, many will see this recommendation as perhaps the most  important contribution of your  Commission, the report said.  With regard to neighborhood  pubs, the report suggested they  be introduced in small numbers  until ttiey are proven sucf  cessful. The report said, We envisage them in areas apart  from strictly residential areas,  for example, in a* shopping complex. ���''������' '���   ;-:';-. '  Only two main types of liquor  licences were recommended in  the future. The public house  licence would remain basically  as it is in present legislation,  and a new omnibus licence  would cover the sale of liquor  where dining facilities are offered.  Where the proposed omnibus  licences are held, it was recommended that sale of alcoholic  beverages be allowed every day  of the year; except Sundays and  Christmas Day when drinks  would be served only between  noon and 11 p.m./And on Good  Friday, drinking would be permitted only between 3 p.m. and  11 p.m. Conventions and banquets would be allowed to serve  alcoholic beverages on Sundays  and holidays between the hours  recommended.  The report recommended also  that in future, music, radio, television, and live entertainment  be permitted in all licensed  premises, with a > new regulation that would make it the responsibility of the licensee for  the keeping of orderly conduct  in his premises.

Raines, president  of Roberts Creek Hospital Aux  iliary Mrs. Madge Hansen, president of Sechelt Senior Citizens  association: and Mrs. Olive McGregor (absent on account of  illness) secretary of Senior Citizens.  The President was very  pleased with this and complimented these officers on their  efforts.  She outlined the various projects of the Oddfellows, White  Rock camp for children, residence for senior citizens, pilgrimage to United Nations, visual research and eye bank, bursaries, and many other items  of interest to Oddfellowship. She  was presented with a gift and  after the meeting all members  enjoyed meeting old friends  from lodges at New Westminster. Fairview, Powell River,  Kamloops, Gibson's and Ladner.  The president also visited all  the members in hospital and  also those at home on the sick  list.  Job's Daughters meet at PNE  The International Order of  Job's Daughters will hold i|s  grand  session April' 2,  3,  and  4th in the Garden Auditorium of  the Pacific National Exhibition.  Mrs. Robert Blackmore of. Burnaby, grand guardian, and Mr.  Graham Foster, Richmond,  grand associate guardian, will  preside.  There will be a good representation of some 3,000 girls  and adult councillors belonging  to the 55 Bethels in the province  at the business sessions and social activities being planned.  Job's Daughters is an organization for girls between 12 and  20 years having a Masonic relationship. The organization bases its teachings on the Book  of Job in the Bible. Members  are taught the highest ideals  and principals of young won>  anhood, respect and thoughtful-  ness of others. They also receive leadership training.  Their     main project    is the  Lymphoma Research project of  the British Columfbia Cancer institute, but each Bethel has its  own local philanthropic project  such as, assistance to the blind,  retarded, disabled and elderly  shut-ins. Some also adopt foreign  children.  Mrs. Effie Caldwell, Past  Grand Guardian of B.C., Started  the Lymphoma Research project in 1952. In 18> years Bethels  have raised and donated $58,-  000 towards the project. Many  pieces of equipment have been  bought and assistance given to  doctors furthering their studies  in the research for the cure of  cancer.  Money is raised by each Bethel in numerous ways including  bazaars, rummage sales, selling  candy and peanuts.  Bethels are located in Terrace,  Dawson Creek, Vanderhoof,  Prince George, Williams Lake,  The Kootenays, Okanagan, Vancouver Island and the Lower  Mainland as far as Chilliwack.  ishinq Well returns  A Return to Italy will be^ the  theme of Pender Harbor's St.  Mary's Hospital auxiliary wine  and cheese party starting at  8 p.m. April 4 in Madeira Park  Community hall when the popular St. Mary's Wishing Well will  again be a feature.

Prince received many Christmas and valentine cards. Some  addressed to him personally and  came through the mail. Prince  had his own scrap book and picture album.  At Christmas time there were  gifts for him, under the tree  such as fancy lolli-<pups and  maple buds. One Christmas  night the Wyngaerts heard ripping of paper and there was  Prince under the Christmas tree  and already eaten his maple  buds and was starting on a box  of chocolates. So no more chocolates could be left under the  tree. Prince loved chocolates  apples and oranges, Prince is a  great loss to Frank and Jean  Wyngaert and also his playmate Chester (the cat.) His  name was- Prince and he lived  like a prince.  Special thanks go to Dr. Perry for the times he attended to  Prince and a very special thanks  to Mrs. Phyllis Hylton for her  love and kindness given to us  at all times and especially in  our loss of Prince).

He would know  the minute I found him and  would acknowledge my presence  with an, infinitesimal show of  recognition and interest.  Common courtesy on my part  required',��� that I recognize his  presence. This I would do by  stopping the sawing, never very  hard for me to do, and going to  lean on a stump or sit on a wind  fall a few feet from him. There  was no talking, no nattering,  no purring, just two creatures  companionably dreaming their  dreams, two minor philosophers  turning for the nonce a windfall into a public square of ancient Greece. After a while I  would usually say, "Spot, this  will not keep us warm next  winter", and go back to my sawing, r  He would ignore and forgive  this inane remark. I would saw  for half an hour, sometimes for  an hour depending on weather  and mood. Suddenly I would say  to myself, "To hell with it, this  is the last block". While I was  still sawing Spot would get up,  stretch   and   slowly   start   for  home. He knew of my decision  to quit before I had given the  least indication of my intention.  There were two ways of going home. If the weather was  fine he would walk about twenty  feet ahead of me, leading me to  the   back   porch   and   into   the  warm  kitchen.  If the  weather  was   bad,   the   grass   wet   and  cold, he would walk directly in  front of me and almost underfoot. He didn't ask me to pick  him up but he certainly made  it known that a ride would be  acceptable.  I  would   pick   him  up of course and not crow too  much about it;  after all it was  the least a gentleman wearing  SOLNIK SERVICE  FOR  DATSUN  Sales & Service  Sunshine Coast Highway  Ph. 886-9662 ��� GIBSONS  watertight boots could do for  another gentleman whose feet  were wet and cold. When we got  to the porch I would put him  on the steps and he would lead  me into the kitchen. Oh yes,  Spot sawed wood.  Holidays were always. an unsettling time,   not   a problem,  merely an episode that he had  to bear. We had two neighbors  with whom he was on excellent  terms;   Mickey   Osborne,   next  door and Mrs. Morris, a short  quarter    mile down    the road.  Mickey would come in the morning and feed him canned cat  food, biscuits and milk; in the  latish    afternoon Mrs.    Morris  would bring him hot porridge,  milk and loving attention. Yet  such was his effect on our feelings and such his ability to register gentle disapproval at our  lengthy  absence  that   on   first  seeing him he always managed  to  make us  feel   that he had  been neglected, appearing scruffy, old and thin;'no such thing  of course, he had been fussed  over; lived like a king and eaten  twice too much. Waiting for us  at his  usual place,  he walked  in the house ahead of us, got  on his chair and holidays were  over for another year.  So the years went on and Spot  was becoming a very old cat.  He no longer met us on>his little knoll, he waited for us at the  front steps, slowly climbed the  few short stairs, while we waited so he would-be first to enter  the house. A man is a fool and  often a coward, I was adamantly hiding from myself that he  was^ coming to .the end of his  days. His legs were shaky, his  sight was going, he was losing  control of his bowels and was  now so    weak    that\he    could  scarcely   climb   steps.   I   would  tenderly,  yes   tenderly pick up  this   scruff of  hair,   this  rattle  of bones,  this heart  of a lion,  which was now Spot, and gently  lay him near the heater or on  his   kitchen  chair.   And  still   I  refused  to  let myself  acknowledge that his days were nearly  done.  Finally the day came, on his  short walk he had stumbled and  fallen two or three times, he  could barely drink a little milk,  all control of his tired body was  almost gone. This particular afternoon Jean did not go to the  office. I said good-bye to her,  touched Spot's head, he acknowledged the touch with a tiny  purr and I left.  When I returned to the yard  and stopped at the usual place  Jean was "standing on the knoll  where Spot had for so many  years  met us  when  we  came  back home. She stood there,  completely motionless, tears  streaming down her sorrowing  face. "Jules", she said, "I had  the vet come and put Spot out  of his misery". I said nothing,  I couldn't speak. I could feel  wave after wave of almost uncontrollable violence wash over  mc Desolation and cold fury  held me fast. Fury at nature,  fury at man's capacity to suffer  and fury at Jean's humane action. This unnatural spasm  passed and fury turned to gratitude and thanks. With courage  and understanding, with her  great compassionate heart she  had closed the book, Hand in  hand, forlorn and yet relieved,  we walked into the house.  Genesis tells the story of the  creation of the universe; the  water and the land, the plants,  the fishes, the birds and the  beasts and finally man to whom  is given dominion over all that  came before. Somehow I don't  think that Spot ever heard of  Genesis much less of man's dominion Over him.  ROD & GUN CLUB NEWS  Gibsons Rod & Gun club announces it now has loading facilities at the club.

I owed a man a sum of  money aiid I paid him in cash  but I didn't get a receipt. Now  he is demanding the money  again.  Q. I owed a businessman $1500  and he agreed to take $1000  cash in full satisfaction which  I paid and I got a receipt  marked paid in full. Now he is  threatening to sue me for the  other $500.  Q. I owed $400 and I paid $350  to settle it but I just got a receipt for $350. The other guy is  going to sue me for the $50.  A. The answer is the same in  all cases���Don'.t pay any more  money. If you are sued; defend  the -action. We don't think the  prospective claimants will go  so far as proceeding to trial but  if they do, it will be one person's word against the other.  The judge is an expert at deter/mining who is telling thej  truth and who is not.  Nurses meet  There are over 3000 Licensed  Practical Nurses employed in  B.C. hospitals, and because the  association, which numbers 800  has fought so hard for recognition, it has asked the provincial  government to declare the week  of March 15 to 21 Licensed Practical Nurse Week. During this  week on March 19 and 20 an invitation is extended to every  practical nurse in B.C. to attend  the annual meeting in Vernon.  DROP TRACK MEET  The Royal Canadian Legion  is terminating its national track  and field program. The decision,  announced by President Robert  Kohaly, came after the Legion  was notified that no federal financial support will be available  for the program this year, it  marks the end of 13 years of  Legion involvement in track and  field.  During this period the program, at provincial and national  level, has cost over $1 million.  The federal contribution, starting in 1962, amounted to $414,000.  Gibsons-motorists are reminded by lovely ski-bunny Dolores  Wilks and St. Bernard buddy  Shandy that miniature 1970 auto  licence tags for key chains will  soon be mailed to them by the  Tuberculous and Chest Disabled  Veterans Association. Proceeds  of the annual' campaign are  used for employment of TB  Vets, scholarship and research  into respiratory diseases. Function of the tags is tracing of  owners of lost keys.  (Copyright)  The Jaw looks l>ehind written  documents, such as receipts,  to determine the true amount  paid and the actual indebtedness existing.  Q. I. received, from the lawyer for an estate, a release to  executor, to sign in connection  with a legecy I'm supposed to  receive. The release was a long  document and contained a receipt but I didn't actually re-  ��� ceive the money.  A. This is standard procedure.  The lawyer will forward you  the funds. If you have any  doubts when you return the release, enclose a letter stating  that it is understood that the  release is not to be effective  until and unless you are actually paid. The alternative would  be for you to attend the lawyer's office and not deliver the  release till you have the money  but this is rather cumbersome.  Q. I signed a release for a  claim I have and was to receive payment. I was offered a  cheque. I want cash. What if  the cheque fails?  A: Take the cheque. If it was  dishonored, the release, which  we assume contains a receipt,  would be a nullity and your original claim would revive. In  any event, you could always sue  oh the cheque.  Q. A customer, a sort of contractor, paid us for building materials and we gave him a receipt. The customer returned  and said he lost it and needed  another one to prove to the owner of a house being built that  he had paid us for the building  materials. This costomer owes  us for other sales to him in the  past and we are afraid if he has  the two receipts he will claim  he paid us twice what he did.  A. Give him another receipt  marked Duplicate.  0CEANSIDE FURNITURE  & CABINET SHOP  HARDWOOD SPECIALISTS  Fine custom furniture  Store & Restaurant fixtures  Furniture Repairs  Custom designed  Kitchens & Bathrooms  in all price ranges  R.

Mr. L. Van  Egmond represents the Half  moon Bay Development company.  The club recommended the  matter be turned over to Regional District board to allow  studies which would include an  overall development of the district. The brief was presented to  W.N. Venables, chairman of the  Pollution Control board. It follows:  Gibsons Rod & Gun Club appreciates this opportunity to  place its views before the Pollution Control Board at a hearing conducted in the village of  Sechelt, B.C. on March 11, 1970.  Our submission at this hearing  is relative to an application filed  by Mr. L. Van Egmond of Halfmoon Bay Development Ltd. to  discharge sewage into the  Straits of Georgia at Halfmoon  Bay, B.C.  Progress suggests a technology which regards exploitation  of our resources as both lec-  essary and virtuous. A situation where industrial growth is  maintained by squanderig our  heritage;. where fossil fuels,  minerals and water resources  are used at a frightening pace  with little or no regard for ecological consequences. So it is  that we find a steady erosion  of quality recreation areas and  wildlife habitant on a global  scale and especially so close to  urban centres.  We are told that our survival  hinges on subtle arrangements  of  delicate   complex   biological  Easter Cards  Easter Baskets  (We make up our own)  NOVELTIES   ���   EASTER CANDIES  GIRS FOR ALL OCCASIONS  We carry a complete line of Sewing Supplies  and Notions  FOR B��ST VAUB, GO TO ;  Gilmore's Variety Shop  885-9343  SECHELT  auu��  Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire Department  DAN  Community Hall  MARCH 28  Refreshments 8 -12 ��� Dance 9 -1  Tickets $2.00 each  _3^"*!___3S^rr?S___��'^Tr?��  USED APPLIANCES  $49.95  $129 95  $189 95  $3995  $159 95  20" RANGE   VIKING DRYER        KENMORE WASHER ...  13 cu. ft.

Many are the species of wildlife  that will (become extinct in the  near future, evidence perhaps  that this balance is even now  shifting.  It is suggested that the writing is no longer on the wall,  but rather carved deep into the  earth itself with contaminated  waterways bearing supplementary evidence. Even so we continue our progress and state  that we can pollute to certain  limits, yet no one knows nor  can define these limits in meaning full terms.  In  British   Columbia  we  still'  appear   to   base   our   pollution  control programs on a premise  that water, air and land have a  natural  capacity  to  dispose  of  wastes and that we are required  to use that capacity to its limit. Even now we entertain an  application with only the most  rudimentary treatment.  Today we hear of an applica-  . tion  by    a  land    development  company, a  company probably  encouraged   by   government   to  subdivide land and a  company  needing suitable sewage outfall  .hat their parcels of land may  be  served by the enmities   of  civilization. This is progress by  our measure and so on it goes,  land developer after land developer  followed by  sewage   outfalls all up and down our coasts.  For the present would it not  ���be more progressive to regulate  new land developments to land  that can accept septic systems  and to restrict parcels of land  only to  a size that would  accept such systems?  Would it not be more progressive to bring all land and  its usage under a central authority, an authority that could  plan its overall1 development including its water supply and  sewage disposal?  While we  have  not had'; the  privilege of studying the application or treatment as planned  by Halfmoon Bay Development  Ltd. we.would not recommend  acceptance   at   this   time,  but  would suggest that for the pre  sent these plans be turned over  to the Regional Board, and that  studies be made to include the  overall development of the region.  We further     recommend  that our energies be directed' to  a clean up of existing pollutions,  and that when out falls are required that'they meet only the  highest standards that /our pres-  en technology can" devise."  Within the Howe Sound area  the Squamish Valley and its sea  approaches' are in immediate  straights, all its waterways are  threatened by our surge of progress that requires unrestricted  development without overall  planning. Let us not then deliberate upon another folly that  would threaten further our bays,  beaches and recreational values.  It is doubtful that the Sechelt  Peninsula will ever become industrialized, but certainly its  wealth will be measured by the  recreational area it offers to  the metroplis next door, thus  our interest in Halfmoon Bay  is relative to our overall interest in the land and waters of  Howe So :nd.  In conclusion we belive that only by forsight and planning will  we benefit from our resource  heritage and certainly our  greatest resource in this area is  the environmental quality that  supports our recreational and  wildlife. Let it not be squandered for short term gains.���Respectfully submitted Peter B.  Finlayson,  president.
