Manned by conscientious men  and women, these citizens of the  of the Roberts Creek area have  volunteered a considerable  amount of time in training, administration, and organizing.  They hope to start the new fire  hall in the near future and with  water in the hydrants the job  becomes easier.  The fire department is open  to any volunteers men or, women, who live in the Roberts  Creek area. >  At the first annual meeting on  March 23 the election of officers  was held and are as follows:  Chief, Stan Rowland; deputy  chief, Jack Eldred; Captains,  Glen Kraus and Robert Cotton;  Lieutenants Sharon Kraus and  Chuck Barnes; Chairman, Jack  Eldred; Secretary, Betty Fitzpatrick and treasurer Jim Setch-  field.

L-   \  Seminar for loggers  Raymond Hull, president of Go  wer Point Property Owners association, under fire from diehard pollutionists because he  backed away from opposing  Gibsons sewage system, was  given almost unanimous support  at a' special meeting of the association Sunday. The audience  numbered close to 50 only six  opposed Mr. Hull.  The meeting opened with discussion as to whether the press  should be allowed to remain.  With this settled by the majority 'favoring the press remaining,  the problem of proxy votes arose  with opponents questioning their  validity. A majority vote decided proxy votes - would be accepted-without question. -  Mr:^ Hull turned the chair over to -Fred Corley. Mr. Hull's  action under fire, was over informing Gibsons council the majority of the association executive were-in favor of dropping  opposition to the Gibsons sewage  system- in view of council's bylaw for intallation of a secondary treatment plant. Opponents  argued this is contrary to a 1968  motion passed in August, 1968  which stated the association  would do all within its power  to oppose establishing a treated  sewage outlet. The seconder of  that'"motion "explained that the  situation at that time was for  having chlorinated treatment  only �� The situation had "changed  now-that Gibsons planned a secondary treatment plant.  In-1969 a motion that the-as-=  sflciation* _iake,*furtherf protests  Jt necessary"1 'against' a sewage  v'6utfa 11 "in* the" Gower "Point area",  was added to the argument by  Faster eggs  go quickly  ���Plans will be considered fox  next year's Easter Egg' drive  -.wJiich^'wiUlimit ; the ages of  those taking part according to  officials vin charge of the event.

Some youngsjbers sported a  sack almost filled with collected  eggs. For that reason' chamber  officials are planning limitations  on the event so that the younger  fry for whom it is meant, will-  have a better chance to collect  Easter eggs.

HEALTH  MEETING  There wiM be a meeting of the  CoastMJaribaldi Union Board of  Health at the Health Centre in  Gibsons, at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday,  April 7.  DORIAN GREGORY  . Students from 49 secondary  schools throughout B.C. will  spend two days of their Easter  vacation at the University of  Victoria, for a preview of the  university approach to learning.  The annual; Humanities and  Science Symposium, now in its  fourth year of sponsorship \by  the University, assisted this  year by Vancouver-Foundation,  will be held April �� and 4. The!  symposium will1 give selected  senior students an opportunity  to discuss their work in a wide  variety of fields.  Papers to be discussed will  Include What Is Marijuana,  North American Indian Achievements in Modern Science  class. The External Triangle,  A discussion of the Proposed  New Indian Policy, Vancouver's  Italian Immigrants and Dorian  Gregory's Chess Analogies in  Three Dimensions.  Mr. L. Peterson, head of the  English department at Elphinstone Secondary school, was an  official guest of the UiversMy of  Victoria at its fourth Annual  Humanities and Science Symposium. Mr. Peterson, a sponsor of  many student extra-curricular  activities thoughout" the years,  accompanied Elphinstone Grade  12 student, Dorian Gregory, who  presented a paper to the Symposium.  those - opposing-Mr. -Hull's .action  Supporters argued that the issue at time was involved with  an elementary plant. Conditions  had changed since with respect  to- the physical plant, requiring  a -second look at the project. It  was argued it was now logical  that a changed point of view  was necessary.  -'���.'Opponents maintained the- executive had no power;to change  association: policy in view:\ of  motions that had been, passed.  Proponents said the, situation  had immeasurably changed and  that the' executive had power to  act because the association had  registered its opposition; only to  raw primary treatment. ���,'. Opponents ; thought that a ^general  meeting should have been, held  before the executive changed its  position: ''.'"���'   " ;    ; ;  - When-it came to - the vote to  support the action of the president or to oppose it, the hand  count revealed not more than 6  persons opposed and close to 40'  in favor.  After the vote, those opposing  Mr. Hull asked the chair to advise the pollution board that a  public hearing should be held  on the issue. Mr. Hull said that  executive has no power to advise the pollution board to hold  a hearing.  The meeting quickly turned  to its second subject, that of a  Centennial project and after  minutes of arguing it decided  a committee consisting of Mrs;  A. Moorcroft , Mrs. P. Elson,  Mr. R. Vernon, Mrs. K. Fisher  and Mrs. H. Chaster would be  formed to consider further action  Gibsons municipal council  headed by Mayor Wally Peterson and the Chamber of Commerce headed by Dick,Blakeman will get together shortly  to arrange a paint-up cleanup  week some time after mid-April.  This was decided ��� at Tuesday  night's council meeting: Council hoped for the same co-operation as was given the week last  "year when ��� a large amount of  garbage debris foumj^its. ,j?ay_  to the garbage dump.  B.C. Hydro street light rates  increased 6.3% April 1, council  was informed by Bob Norminton  Sunshine Coast Hydro district  manager. The main highway  lights will now cost close to $60  a year and the secondary lights  about $52.  Notification that Checkwelp  reserve residents now have .the  help of the Regional District  Board to get water and an application from Dick Kennett for  a water connection to his North  rd. home will be taken up by  council water meeting this  week., Mrs. A.S. Trueman of  Headlands area asked that a  sidewalk be laid from Headlands  area to as far as the post office.  Council felt it could do nothing  this   year  owing   to   the other  priorities. So it was left to be  tackled for next year.  The provincial department of  travel due to restricted spending  stated it could do nothing to get  . travel counsellors on the Langdale ferries. A letter from the  Ferry Authority said Manager  Monty Aldous will be away until April 6 and added' that arrangements for a meeting are  a problem.  Mayor   Peterson    added that  .....thj^e^wasl no intention of-drop}.:  ' ping the idea of having travel  aides on the ferries even if they  had  to  supply  them.  A  letter  from the B.C. Technology Insti-  ' tute    offering a    travel    counsellor's course was filed for further investigation.  A home occupation license application sought by E. Jeffreys  of Sargent road, for the pur  pose of repairing business machines was granted.  The problem of using plastic  piping in place of Copper for  plumbing is worrying some people who are anxious to use the  cheaper plastic piping,. AM.  Charles Mandelkau told the coun  cil. Mayor Peterson explained  that the changeover to plasic  is still under consideration and  just as soon as it is permissible  the public will be told.  Regina trip for student  Steven Lee, an Elphinstone  Secondary School student, has  been selected to represent British Columbia at the National  Meeting of the Canadian Red  Cross in Regina on April 6, 7  and 8. In recent months Steven  was asked to serve on the provincial, cominittee of the Red  Cross: Y .. ���   :.*  The work of the Junior Red  Cross clubs has become so outstanding and important to the  Red Cross society, that each  province has been asked to send  one representative of these  clubs to the national meeting.  In her letter to Mr. T. Ell-  wood, principal of Elphinstone.  Mrs. I. Service, the director for  Red Cross Youth for B.C. and  the Yukon, said:  "I would also like you to know  that your school was chosen because of the excellent record  it holds in the work of the Red  Cross Youth. I would suggest  that this outstanding club has  not only had promising interested students with leadership ability but is in fact outstanding  due to its excellent, sponsors in  the persons of Mrs. Rankin and  Mrs. Day. Both have been tireless and wonderful."  The Junior .Red Cross club at  Elphinstone has an outstanding  record of service. This club has  a   continuing project  which  involves    supplying a    school  in  Greece. It has sent clothing to  isolated Indian schools. The club  also sent paraplegic equipment  to Africa. The Elphinstone Club  has a considerable overseas outreach, having contributed to em  ergency    operations in    Korea,  Biafra, Peru, and the West Indies. This club has  also given  service locally, providing needed  health, services to some citizens  and an artificial eye to a Kam-  loops man. Coast News, April 1, 1970.

The existing Pollution Control act deals with water, and  land pollution control. Small  domestic sewage discharges less  than 5,000 gallons per day (using septic tanks) are exempted  by the regulations issued under  the Pollution Control act. These  small discharges are being dealt  with by the Health officials under the Health act.. The amendments to the Pollution Control  act do not make any change in  this regard.  2. The main purpose of the  amendments is to extend the  control and regulation over the  industrial air pollution. A number of sections of the act are  Gower Point Property Owners Association members Sunday afternoon revealed their position in the argument over Gibsons sewage system^ in an overwhelming vote in supporting the action taken     being amended so as to bring  by its president. SSSr^the *a   po^tion  contr?1  >     This action was to inform Gibsons council that in view of the er ac *       ese   amena  fact council had definitely involved itself in secondary treatment  for its sewage disposal that .the GPPOA was prepared to withdraw  its objections to the Gibsons sewer scheme.  President Raymond Hull, prominent author, flew back from  Boston where he was holidaying, to attend this meeting. There  were close to 50 persons present.  When it came to a vote on the motion supporting the president's  action in writing to Gibsons council, not more than six hands were  raised in opposition. This left about 40 people, who raised their  hand high in favor of Mr. 'Hull's action  ments generally follow the recommendations made in July lasf  year by the ��� 'Pollution Control  board. The minister of lands,  forests and water resources forwarded copies of these recommendations to all municipalities  last summer.  3. Air pollution from domestic  commercial and institutional  sources and from such activities as burning of leaves, burn-  for permit if so ordered by the  director, or do not apply for permit if so ordered by the director, or do not improve the treat-  ..ment if so ordered by the director, etc.)  As mentioned under Item one  small sewage flows, less than  5,000 gallons per  day,  are  ex-  ;empted.  . ��� x   ���        t  ��� 7. The so-called penalty section (Section 20A) of the existing act makes an offence if a  person discharges sewage effluent or waste without permit.  The re-writen secion 20A broa-  ens the applicability of the penalty section by making an offence any violation of the provisions of the Pollution Control  act or its regulations. In addi-  ion, damage done to pollution  control   installation' and   equip-  ' ment would also, fall under thi s  section. (Penalty will remain unchanged���$1,000 or three months  imprisonment or both, and if  the offence is of a continuing  ature���a fine of $500 per day),  8. Regarding the applications  to the director of pollution control branch for permits for discharge of water, soil and air  pollutants, the amendments provide that a copy of application  be forwarded to departments of  agriculture, health and recrea-  Perhaps this will quieten down the hubbub which has caused    ing from land clearing, land fill-    tion and conservation, and, the  a considerable wordage to be printed as the result of the actions  of a minority which apparently felt it had strong support. However  the vote did not offer them much hope for support.  It cannot be said pressure was placed oh those favoring Mr.  Hull by anyone in Gibsons. From the start Gibsonites from the  mayor on down refrained from entering the Gower Point fray, preferring to let those property owners make their own decision. This  they did in no uncertain manner.  Perhaps now Gibsons might be allowed, to proceed on its allotted path, allotted by grace of the Provincial[Pollution board, to  proceed with what it plans to do under provincial direction, with  no deals under the table or conspiracies to flout whatever regulations that may be involved.  Clear policies necessary  A cooling off process is necessary for those people who, having  taken hold of the pollutibn ruckus are barging in where angels fear  to tread. Gordon Draeseke, president of the Council of Forest Industries expresses this feeling when he says that when too many  people without sufficient knowledge of our environmental problems jump on the anti-pollution bandwagon the real issues can  quickly become lost. ^  He felt that governments ��� municipal, provincial and federal,  should first develop clear policies and directives on pollution control before rushing through new legislation calling for standards  which present technology is unable to meet. He also felt concerned about the number of "amateurs" clamoring for action and looking for easy solutions. There are no easy or simple solutions to a  problem of this complexity.  ��� He believes that pollution problems must be solved scientifically, not emotionally or politically. Improvement of the environment must go hand in hand with economic growth because pollution and population-pressure are partners. To Ibe realistic the target must 'be acceptable standards of pollution control because there  is no such thing as a pollution-free environment in any modern  society.  {. The forest industry gave up the use of DDT eight years ago oh  their own initiative when serious side effects were first confirmed  and developed insecticides without harmful side effects. Mills have*  he said, spent $60 million on pollution control equipment since 1960.  However, now that large numbers of people are involving themselves, there is a danger the anti-pollution movement may go too  far.  �� .  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE   YEARS  AGO  Weatherman Dick Kennett reported a high temperature of 66  for March, a low of 23 with 4  days of rain and almost 2.5 inches of rain and snow. Heaviest  rain was March 28 with 1.30 inches.  A Centennial project meeting  for Roberts Creek drew an attendance of* 19 and it decided  to have a library ^ at the post  office corner.  10 YEARS AGO  Action to get a recreation  committee functioning in Gibsons suffered a setback when only one person turned up. Another  meeting was arranged.  Lloyd Burritt of Gibsons area  has won the Jean Coulthard  scholarship for his musical composition at the B.C. Music Festival. ;  Gibsons Legion auxiliary celebrated its 27th birthday with,  a tea in the Legion hall attended  by friends as far away as Pender Harbour.  15   YEARS   AGO  Wes. Hodgson showed a selection  of colored films taken in  area gardens during the summer of 1954, at a Garden Club  meeting. ''- *  Gibsons council thanked volunteers who gave their services  free of charge in supplying and  installing a new engine on the  village truck.  Eric Thomson, Hopkins Land-  ding lawyer, spoke before the  Women's Institute on the subject of Women's Rights.       v  20   YEARS AGO  Sechelt's Board of Trade  passed a motion deprecating  the federal govenpnent spending, more money on Roberts  Creek wharf owing to what  members termed a change in  traffic patterns. .   !;  L.S. Jacksbn, returning from  a visit to Victoria reported he  suspected Port Mellon's pulp  mill would be reopened in the  fall.  Speaking at a Kinsmen dinner,  L.S. Jackson offered asv a gift  park property near Gibsons as a  memorial to .commemorate the  names of George, L.S.J., R.T.  Jackson, Terry, Tom and Stonewall Jackson.  ing and land grading, etc.,  which are of lesser importance,  are exempted. It is visualized the  municipal governments will regulate and control such air pollution sources under their bylaws.  4. Air pollution from motor-  vehicles will be. controlled under  the Motor-Vehicle act to which  appropriate amendments are being drafted.  Air pollution from burning of  weeds, crops or stubble will remain under the Noxious Weeds  act.; air pollution control. from  pesticides or biocides will remain under the Pharmacy act.  or Pest Control act (Canada).  5. All new industriarair con-  tamiant emissions . will require  permit from the director of pollution control branch of the  water resources service effective Jan. 1 1971.  All existing industrial air contaminant emissions are to be  registered with the director of  pollution control branch on or  before Dec. 31; 1971. The director will then order them to apply for a'permit which they will  be required to do within 60  days. The scheduling of this pro  cedure which involves the issuance of a number of permits  to the existing air pollutant emissions will, depend on the available experienced staff. The director may have to extend this  over a period of several years.  6. Amendments are also being made to those sections of the  Act which deal with water and  soil pollution. The existing Act  states that every effluent or  waste material discharge requires a permit from the director. It is estimated that there is  quite a large number of existing effluent or waste material  discharges that have been in operation for,a number of years  and which are not yet brought  under permits. .  The amended act would provide that effective Jam 1, 1970,  all new; sewage or waste dis-'  charges require permit and that  all the existing sewage; discharges will have to be registered  with the director of pollution  control by Dec. 31, .1970. The  director will then order the existing -discharges to' apply for  permit which they will be required to do within 60 days.  Again, as mentioned in connection with existing air pollutants,  the scheduling of the orders by  the Director and the processing  of the applications received will  depend on the available experience^! staff and will very likely  take several years to complete.  This amendment regarding  the existing sewage and other  waste discharges without permit means also that those who  have been discharging without,  permit could be prosecuted effective Jan. 1, 1970. (They could  ed Act if they do hot register  be prosecuted under the amend-  with the director or do not apply  comptroller of water rights,  whose recommendations will  require consideration by the director. Presently this requirement exists under the regulations of the act.  9, A new section 5B will be added to the act which provides  that the provisions of the Pollution Control, act snail prevail over those of any other act in case  of a conflict. There are'several  other Acts that have sections  dealing   with pollution   control.  If a municipality has an air  pollution control by-law, the industrial air pollution control  permits issued by the director of  pollution control branch will  prevail over the provisions of  the municipal by-law! However,  *if the municipal by-iaw requires  higher degree of treatment than  that specified in the permit, theN  by-law requirements will still  be valid.  10. Under amended Section 13,  objections to granting of a permit to discharge sewage will remain unchanged.  Objections to granting of an  air pollution control permit may  be filed with the director of pollution control branch by any  person who lives within 5 miles  of the point of emission and by  the immediately adjoining Municipality.  11. As in the existing Act, the  pollution control board of the  water resources service will continue to be the first stage appeal  tribunal from any decision  made by the director. The "pollution control board will also  have powers to determine wa-  OFFER FOR TRUCK  AND DUMP BOXES  OFFERS: plainly marked on  the envelope, "Offer on _\T.

(The  director has similar powers).  in addition, the board has powers under Section 8 to recommend to the government that  certain effluent, waste or air  pollution discharges be exempted from the provisions of the  act..-.'  12. The new, section 21 requires that all hew sewage collection system proposals require  approval by the minislter of  lands, forests and water resources before a municipal by-law is  presented to a vote of the electors or construction is com-  menced. The minister will also  have powers to require improve-  , ments to the existing sewage  systems.  ���Presently, the minister of  health services and hospital insurance has this authority under the Health act. (Sewage  treatment proposals require permit from the director of pollution control branch).  13. The new section 24 provides  that actions taken under the  Pollution Control act cannot be  challenged by a court action  excepting in a case where an  official has exceeded his authority or jurisdiction.  14. New section 25 makes the  act applicable to all provincial  government operations.  15.

Fryer, 31, said the aim of the  Reform. Caucus is ito engender  relevant debate at the convention, not to overthrow ithe leadership of the Congress;  Fryer said the reform caucus  will urge that ihe CLC help the  labor movement re-establish itself as a. social force through  community projects.  ; The reform group will also  press for a broadening of industrial democracy by restricting  the employer's presently unrestricted right to control prices,  technological change, relocation  of factories and other decisions  which affect the workers' way  of life, he said.  Fryer told the 1RMA the reform group will also try to in-  New pollution committee  A pollution committee has  been formed by Port Mellon Local 297 of the IBPS & PMW.  The committee under the chairmanship of Don Pearsell has  been instructed to co-operate  fully with any other committees  of a like nature, in the area and  to determine and recommend to  the Local Union the best method by which Local 297 can be  of benefit to the community.  The battle to rid the atmosphere of much of the poilutents  being deposited there by us as  individuals and  as  workers  in  an industry, notorious for its  capabilities for pollution, ts dependent on the singular and collective action of all the citizens.  , Canadian Forest Products,  Howe Sound Pulp division, has  been approached requesting  their co-operation in the ^operation of, such a committee. It is  hoped that they will see the benefit^ to be reaped in the proper  education of the local membership and the public in general  regarding the -true facts concerning pollution- of the envirori-  ment, both by the pulp and paper  industry and others.  Ferry service protested  Port Mellon Local 297 of the  IBPS & PMW, has protested to  (he provincial government in  the strongest possible terms,  (he totally inadequate and inconvenient scheduling of ferries  in this area.  The letter sent to the B.C.  Ferry Service with .copies to the  highways department and the  Hon. Isabel Dawson, also decried the lack of a late night  servLce, pointing out that residents of the Sunshine Coast are  inconvenienced and suffered  financially for thfe right to live  in this area, and calling for im-  mediat e steps to be taken to  end this discrimination against  one segment of the B.C. population./ '-���'  The  protest  came because a  motion from the floor 6f a general membership meeting of the  local union, called unanimously  for such a protest.  The reply from the B.C. Ferry  Service stated that referring to  the protest over inadequate service they supposed that we were  referring to the period when the  Sunshine Coast Queen was in  for refit and unfortunately this  was an inconvenience we would  have to put up with on a yearly  basis...      ���.. \v,-v.';'  As far as late night service  was concerned they stated that  there was.^insufficient- demand  for them to seriously consider  such a move at present and  pointing out that the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island are,  in the same position. w-��� *p  Union scholarship fund  A general meeting of Port  Mellon Local 297, IBPS & PMW,  voted strongly in favor of setting :_p a fund to provide a $100  scholarship annually to a boy or  girl chosen by the secondary  school authorities for the purpose of helping them to attend  vocational school. The recipient of -the^ scholarship would not  necessarily^have to be related  16 a member���''���'of Local 297.  It is hoped that the scholarship will provide the necessary  incentive to enable a young man  or woman, not academically inclined toward a university education, to receive the necessary  vocational training to provide  them with a satisfying and remunerative career in a field to  which they are suited by aptitude and liking, and so to find  a useful place in society .  School Act changes loom  ; Changes to the School act  are before the legislature in the  form of amendments to the act.  Here are some of them which  may be included in the act. when  passed:  If a vacancy occurs after the  first day of July in the last year  in the term of a trustee, the  board inay hold the vacancy  open until the next annual election.   ���:._-.'  A person may now earn up to  $1,000 from the school board before disqualifying himself to sit  i.. .   ''L ".���'���'���'..'.���'  Slash on spot  That., longtime end of summer  sport of the logging fraternity,  slashburning, has�� come in for  criticism. Two professors from  the faculty of forestry at UBC,  Dr. J. Haddock, professor of  silviculture and Dr. J.P. Kim-  mins assistant professor of forest ecology will talk about this  and another forestry issue, sustained yield, of interest to all  those who work in the woods or.  who are engaged in dependent  industries.  Dr. Haddock describes both  these issues a being important  to the future prosperity of Bri;  tish Columbia arid to the people  of this area. This^ meeting is  sponsored by the Sunshine Coast  Environment protection Society:  and will be held at Gibsons Rod  and Gun Club at 8 p.m. on Friday April 3. ^:  as a trustee.  Where applicable, the list of  electors for the rural areas of  a school district will be the list  of electors prepared by the Regional Board.  It is illegal for any person to  disrupt the meetings of a school  board. An offence against this  act is liable, on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding  $50.  A teacher or any other school  board employee, who is granted  a superannuation allowance on  . medical evidence, is prohibited  from accepting a position with  another school board.  With respect to teachers* sick  leave provisions, the bill provides for the following:  , The maximum number of sick  leave days which may be taken  in any one school year remain  at 120 days. Sick leave credit  is accumulated at the rate of  one day for each month taught.  For services prior to April,  1968, sick leave is accumulated  at the rate of one day for each'  month taught.  For services after April, 1968,  sick leave is accumulated at the  ��� rate of one and onehalf days for  each month taught.  Total accumulated credit shall  not exceed 250 teaching days.  Teachers' sick leave determined under this section of the  bill is not portable between  boards, nor can it be supplemented by any negotiated arrangements for leave of absence payments to teachers. -   ���  troduce a sei of guidelines for  international unions operating  in Canada. All' iternationai unions in this country should enable the Canadian membership  to elect all the Canadian officers, and collective agreements  negotiated in Canada should  not be subject to the approval'  of a head office in the United  States. ���"  Fryer said one of the side effects of international unions has  been to disco-rage much-needed  consolidation of Canadian labor.  Minimum wage  $1.50 per hour  Hon. L.R. Peterson, Q.C.,  minister of labor, has announced  a new order which raises the  minimum wage for employees  in many industries and occupations to $1.50 per hour, which  will be the highest minimum  wage in Canada for comparable  < areas of employment.  Effective May 4 1970, the new  order replaces those presently  in effect for the following: Manufacturing and mercantile industries; hotel and catering industry; laundry cleaning, and dyeing industry; fishing industry;  the hotel and catering industry  in unorganized territory; and  in the occupations of elevator  operators and starters; office  occupation; bicycle-riders and  foot-messengers. /  Minimum wage orders in Bri-  . lish Columbia do not provide  lower rates for inexperienced  persons or for female employees, which is the case in a number of the other provinces. The  present minimum wage in most  instances is $1.25 perhour.  Amendments to the Payment  of wages act which were given  Second- Reading in the Legislature strengthen the provisions  of the act and extend its benefits  to additional workmen, Hon. L.  R. Peterson, Q.C. minister of labor announces.  ^Under the amended act wages  found to be owing to an employee as set forth in a certificate  made by the Board of Industrial  Relations will have the status of  a lien or charge in priority over  all liens, charges, or mortgages  of every person in respect of the  real or personal property of the  employer, including those of the  Crown in right of the province.  The number of employees com  ing under the Payment of Wages  act has been.extended to include  all employers and employees in  every industry, business, trade  and occupation, subject to .certain specific exceptions, rather  than to only those included in a  schedule to the act, limiting its  application to certain industries  and occupations.  The importance of the legislation is emphasized when it is  realized that last year $277,370  were collected on behalf, of 3,-  658 employees and 1,767 employers were affected and that additional money could have been  obtained if unpaid wages had  priority.  AN EMERGENCY PHONE  So users of the Regional water supply can telephone the  right place in the event of trouble on the water lines/ the Regional board proposes to have  a special telephone number  available so emergencies can  be handled quickly.  g  SKffflT GARDfflaUB  Sjj>rlng Flower Show  arid Art Display  Saturday, April 11 ��� 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.  St. Hilda's Hall, Sechelt  TEA  AND  PLANT SALE  Admission  ��� Silver  Collection  i-h  Sunshine Coast N.D.P.

GRASS   FIRE  CALL  The Sunday 3 p.m. fire call  came from Hopkins Landing  area where grass and brush in.  vicinity of the home of Dr. J.J.  L. Crosby flared up in a blaze.  Firemen sprayed water on it  and had it under control quickly. mayors:  Regional board directors do  hot possess special powers and  responsibilities of mayors as  specified in Section 179 of the  Municipal act, so states C.H.L.  Woodward, director of^the Mun-  kapal Administration division of  the provincial government's department of jmuhicipal affairs.  This information was supplied  Mayor Wally Peterson through  a letter addressed to hini:by;Mr.  Woodwards A copy, was also  sent to Charles Gooding, secretary treasurer of the; Sunshine  Coast Regional Distrxcf board.  This-board has bee_; in the  throes of dispute started many  months ago, when Director  Frank West wrote a letter as a  director seeking information  which has since been regarded  as beingoutside the^jurisdiction  of the Regional v District board.  It reached a peak ;wheri one director implied at aboard meeting  ���that no Victoria official; was go-  in tell him what he Should do;  Here is the letter which was  received by Mayor Peterson:  Dear Mr. Peterson: In reply  to you letter of March 4, in its  fundamental elements the role  of a director ofi a regional district is analogous to that of a  member of council. He does  not possess the special powers  and reponsihilities of a inayor  as specified, in section 179 of the  Municipal act. He-may act as  the sounding board of public opinion for the area he represents  and should be one of the channels by which (matters which  the regional district has jurisdiction may be brought to the  attention of the board.  The director, as the case may  be, is the elected or appointed  representative of the people or  the municipality he represents  on the Regional board but has  no special governing powers in  respect of regional or local  matters. v  The Regional board is the governmental institution for the region Insofar* _s it is empi^ejed  to act ^thih;the .functions as^  signed Xto it: by Letters Patent  and this implies, in bur view,  that the individual director  or any committee of the board  does not havethe power or the  right to act independently.  Whilet the Regional board is  comprised of members representing different areas, it must  operate as ah integral unit with  one voice. It cannot function in  any other way. The aboard must  be supreme in decisions affecting the region. This is modified  only to the extent necessary to  accommodate functions of the  regional district that are participated in by some of the member areas only. \  Here is what the the Municipal act says about section 179: f  179. The person elected as  Mayor is the head and chief executive officerof the municipality. He is and has all the rights  and privileges of a member of  the Council. In addition he has  full power and it is his duty to  (a) cause the law for the improvement and good government of the municipality to be  duly executed and put in force;  ��� (b) communicate from time to  time to the Council all such information and recommend all  by-lawsx resolutions, and measures which, in his opinion, may  tend to 'the - peace; order, ^and  good government of the municipality in relation to the powers  conferred upon the Council by  this or any other Act;-  (c) establish standing committees for:, any purpose which he  considers would be better regulated and managed by means  of such committees and appoint  members of the -Council thereto;  but the proceedings of all such  committees shall be subject to  the approval! of the Council,  save in so far. as such proceedings may be in pursuance of any  one of them under subsection  (2)  of section 181;  (d) inspect and order the ^conduct of all officers and employees of the municipality, and direct the method of management  of the business and affairs of  the municipality, and suspend,  if deemed necessary, any officer  or employee of the municipality  and,, as far as may be in his  power, to "cause all negligence,  carelessness, and violation of  duty on the part of the officers  and employees to be prosecuted  and punished; but. every such  case of suspension shall be reported to the Council at its next  sitting ,and the Council may reinstate any officer or employee  who has been suspended, or confirm such suspension, or confirm and extend such suspension, or dismiss the officer or  employee.  Section 2 of 181 reads as follows:  (2). Notwithstanding section 17,  the Council may, by by-law  adopted by an affirmative vote  of at least two thirds of all the  members' thereof, delegate authority to a standing committee  established under section 179,  wtih such restrictions or condition as are specified in the bylaw/to exercise any of the executive or administrative powers  of; the Council.

Motors  5690 Granville St.  Vancouver 13, B.C.  ALSO A-l  SELECTED USED CARS  By the time this column appears, this country may be embroiled in an open dispute with  the United States about the status of the waters in the Arctic  Archipelago.  The federal government's Arctic Waters Pollution bill is expected to introduce the' whole  broad question of whether the  Northwest Passage is high seas  or not. The bill itself is designed  to control, among other things,  the activities of oil tankers in  the North. It is an outgrowth of  the Manhattan Project, the Prud  horn Bay; discovery in Alaska,  the big rush of Canadian oil exploration in our North and the  other bursts of Northern activity. ; ; ���   .  :    ���   '  As some readers may have  become aware ,1 have been  among those who maintain that  We can avert the tragedy of a  major oil spill in the Arctic only after we establish our sovereignty, -that Canada [ cannot  wait for international agreement  on oil tanker safety regulations  to protect our shores.  There are two methods by  .which we might assert bur sovereign control over the passage.  Canada could declare, a full 12  mile territorial sea: limit. This  breadth of territorial sea, drawn  along shorelines and around islands in Barrow Strait, would  extend our authority across the  Passage. Another method would  be to draw base lines at .the ed-  ���ges of the archipelago and declare all waters within to bo  Canadian internal waters���similar in status to, say,; Howe  .Sound.  Canada should allow innocent  passage of foreign ships in either case. We do elsewhere. But  innocent passage could not and  should not apply; to unsafe oil  tankers.  Those of us who are called the  Arctic hawks insist that this  country "must be the judge of  safety. The American position  is that in any archipelago of the  world, ours of the Arctic included, there should be a high seas  passage open without restriction  to the ships of all nations.  In this they have probably allies in Britain, Russia, and Japan, to name three rather powerful free seas states..  'Americans sometimes seem to  suggest that they wouldn't object to friendly old Canada controlling the Northwest Passage,  but they fear we'd set a bad example for such states as Indonesia. What if Indonesia closed  her island archipelago to free  and unhampered shipping, say,  the Americans.  Thus, this country, might find  itself haled before the Inerna-  tional Court of Justice at the  Hague, either by the U.S. or by  some nation such as Japan, acting on an American suggestion.  We could, avoid this only by placing a reservation on our Arctic Waters Pollution Bill, declaring that Canada, will not  submit to the Court's judgment  In this matter. It is an attractive thought, but directly opposed to the long Canadian tradition of favoring the development of international law to  control all the world's nations.  In the opinion of many authorities whom I have read or  consulted, the Canadian position  in a court test at the Hague  would be strong. But it is not  unbeatable. Some say that if  we reach for too much sovereignty over the waters of our  coastlines, we may lose some  of. the control we have asserted  during the past decade.  The country has already asserted considerable control in  Arctic- waters during recent  months. On her second voyage  North, the Manhattan has had  to submit to Canadian inspection. But our troubles in establishing the necessary sovereignty over the waters of the Arctic Islands .may not be over.  They may be just beginning.

Mrs. Elizabeth Murrison provoked an immediate public response when she protested,  through the newspaper, the injustice of the still narrowly restrictive legislation.  The issue was quickly taken  up and brought before the public through the media of hot  line radio programs, TV., the  press, and a public forum. Support was overwhelming; petitions have been circulating  throughout the city, and a letter writing campaign is underway.  Public response, from men  and women of all economic and  social levels, has been so fav*  orable as to suggest that the  government is lagging far behind public opinion in its policy  on this issue.  .Since this is a matter of federal law, we are seeking support  from all across the country, to  make our feelings known to parliament. If you feel, as we do,  that women should not have to  bear babies which they do not  want or cannot provide for���if  you believe children should not  be brought into an overpopula-  ted world to suffer neglect and  emotional deprivation���if you  think our largely male parliament has no business legislating a punitive morality, of  which women are frequently the  scapegoats and innocent babies  the victims ��� then we invite  you to join us in bur efforts.  Any person or group interested in participating in a similar  campaign in your community  has only to get the issue before  the public and channel the protest against bur present Criminal Code to your Members of parliament. Our f campaign was  launched by just one women  who had the courage to protest.  In politics especially, there is po  yi^r^inlnumbers...

Agreed, they are only one factor, but they are a big factor  and hopefully high-phosphate  content will be cut back by regulation sooner or later. In the  meantime, Consumers' Association of Canada believes the general public should have a clearer understanding of how detergents add to water pollution.  All detergents made in Canada have what is known as a biodegradable base. This means  that they are easily broken  down in municipal sewage  plants, thus lowering treatment  costs and preventing foaming  when discharged into a body of  water.  However, removing the foam  does not mean that all pollutants  have been removed and the  problem of phosphate content  remains.  Detergents such as those used  for washing clothes contain phos  phate which  keep, dirt in  sus-  the water gradually dies,  No completely satisfactory  substitute for phosphates has  been found although manufacturers are testing other alternatives and in the United States-  a product is ; being successfully  marketed in which part of the  phosphate has been replaced by  a   non-nutrient  material.  iThe best way to combat the  problem how is to use soap rather than detergents. However,,  this is not always possible with  some appliances, so an examination was made by a University of Toronto group called  Probe which lists phosphates of.  dozens of cleaning products.  Because Consumers' Association of Canada is anxious that  the true story on phosphates is  known, it published a special issue of its magazine, Canadian  Consumer, which lists the Pollution  Probe analyses.  It is available, free in individual copies, by writing: Consumers' Association of Canada,  100 Gloucester St., Ottawa 4.  Please mark your envelope or  postcard  "Pollution."

Sparkled with a keen sense of  humor   and   background anecdotes, Canon Swan, did not attempt to fbrsee the future but  judging    from    knowledge    at  hand tried to project our thinking forward in the area of Chris  tian works and attitudes.  He- felt .that as we progress  he    institutional    church    may  change but. the basic message  would stand7 secure and become  more  relevant as we became  more aware of God in this age  of space. He mentioned that in  this age of, mind expansion by  way of drugs,  great  stress  is  put on euphaxia which heightens   one    section of the   mind  where maybe we should stress  attoraxia   the   expansion   of  a  healthy body, mind and soul to  give an all .rounded person. In   :  passing the Canon pondered' the  thought of a White    Paper on  Wholesome Living.  It was  a  pleasant afternoon  full to the brim with good food, ,  fellowship and food for thought,  thanks to Canon Swan.  ers in the Sunshine Coast are  welcome to attend also.

Q. I got served with a summons claiming I owe $800 which  I don't. It tells me if I want to  fight it I have to file a document at the courthouse in 8  days, t obtained the correct  document, called an appearance,  and filled it in and filed it.  Havri't I done everything I have  to do to protect myself?  A^ NoV The summons contains  as part of it, a statement of  claim. You must file a statement of defence as, well. Default judgment can-be entered  against you���in default, i.e. of  your defence. Engage a lawyer  as this must be worded according to certain rules. If you,in-!  sist on handling it yourself, see  the answers to the next question. To return to the appearance���_re you sure you have  filled in an address for service  of further documents to you?  This address must be within 10  miles of the court registry. You  must also serve the plaintiff or  his lawyer with a notice of your  appearance.  Q. Can I prepare the documents in a lawsuit myself?  A. You may,; but these must  be worded Ma certain manner.  In a complicated.case, Lawyers  themselves sometimes experience difficulty. If you can't afford a lawyer iahid'are not applying for or are ineligible for  legal aid, at least hire a lawyer to word the documents for  you. His fee for this will not be  large.  The Litter act ��� what does it  involve? The principle of the  Litter act can best be described  by recognizing that two basic  factors are involved. -,;���..  We are attempting to reduce  the burden of litter control in  our parks, wilderness areas and  oh Crown lands, by making it  mandatory that certain types  of beverage containers shall be  refundable, if returned to the  place of sale.  ���'We-. further require that all  types of containers and other  materials that can be classified  as litter shall not be dumped or  abandoned, but must be disposed of consistent with this  act. .. '.-;-,  In short, we are asking all  citizens to not only accept their  full responsibility both in litter  and sanitary control but also  to spread the message to our  visitors as well. We have no illusions ~t"-t this bill by Itself  will solve all our probems in the  field in which it deals.  I am led to believe, however,  there is strong general support  for the policy concepts incorporated into the bill, and, with  public support, we can make  this a definite step forward in  the broad public quest for protection of our environment:.-  The objectives defined will  not be accomplished without  some costs, changes in methods  of merchandizing and some improvement in the attitudes of.,  some of our people.  Concern has < been expressed  that commodities of general  house use, other than soft drinks  beer and ale will be required to  be packaged in refundable containers. . t.    -..-,,'-...,..-;.';  It is not the intention of government that the refund requirements should apply more broadly than necessary and for greater certainty Section 9 (b) makes  provision for spelling out the  commodities and containers set  in Section 3.  The operative sections of this  bill will come into force of law  by proclamation. A reasonable  period of time will be provided  for those who may be affected  by this Bill to make the necessary arrangements. I would suggest, however, that no undue  delay ought to be contemplated^  for the bill will likey'be proclaimed before mid-summer.  (Copyright)  Q. Why can't I handle my own  ���trials? . '��� '  A. You may, but trials are  usually won; or lost in the preparation or lack of same. The  preparation for the trial is more  important than the trial itself.  There are documents to prepare,  witnesses to interview, subp-  oneas to be.issued and served  and the presentation of the evidence and legai argument to be  carefuly considered. A lawyer  is the only person competent to  do all this.  Q. I have been charged with a  criminal offence. I hayn't got  much of an excuse and don't  want the expense of a lawyer.  What do you advise?  Av Engage a lawyer. The criminal law is very technical and  tricky. At least see a lawyer  about.how you should conduct  your own defensce. His fee for  this won't be large���-perhaps $20.  At the very least plead not guilty The crown may be unable to  prove the case against you.  Don't, assume you are guilty.  You may have a defence you  are not aware of. The judge at  the trial will help you. For traffic cases, where the fine is less  than say $50, it would generally  be uneconomical to hire, a lawyer. !  Q. I have, been sued in the  small claims division for $500.  should I have a lawyer?  A. No. A lawyer is not necessary or desirable in this court  where the procedure is simple  and no statement of defence or  complicated documents are required. In any event, the appeal  is by way of a new trial in the  next highest court-county court.  If you lose and want to appeal  you can, consult a lawyer at that  time.  ~_1  It could also be observed that  for those who camp in the wilderness, a shovel will become the  most important piece of equipment in their camping gear.  On the part of the government there will be a determined  effort to reduce the incidence of  both litter and pollution. We are  already spending hundreds of  thousands of dollars a year providing facilities for litter and  waste control. We will increase  our efforts in this field.  Should actual operation require further broadening of the  Act, I am sure there will be no  hesitation in recommending further action to this legislative  assembly.  Despite any inconvenience  that may emerge as a result of  actual application of this bill as  law,, I am convinced that its  measures are in the best interest of the public.

Using the same pattern, you can create three different���looking garments in almost the same time it formerly  took to make just one. The secret is in multiple cutting and  sewing. By using cottons of similar weight, you can cut out all  the major pieces of the three  garments at once. Be sure the  fabrics are light enough to be  handled easily together. Place  the three fabrics .on top of each  other, and then lay out the major pattern pieces that are identical for each garment. Pieces  used for one garment only are  cut separately. Mark each piece  individually, and then stitch the  darts and seams that all the garments have in common.  Press darts and seams for all  three garments in one trip to  the ironing board. Then add individual touches to each garment.
