Sec-  retaTy treasurer J. Metzler will  be the returning officer as the  result of changes to the school  act which does away with outside returning officers.  District Superintendent R.R.  Hanna and Mr. Metzler will com  bine efforts to prepare information on cost factors for trustees  to ���������use when such need arises.  Councils, municipal or otherwise, clubs arid organizations  who require members of the  school board to their meeting  to explain Referendum. 10 are  urged to call the school board  office 880-2225 so arrangements  can be made.  The provincial government  has given approval for construction of emergency classrooms  and the board of school trustees  is submitting to the public a referendum  for additions  to  two  schools in the district. The additions to these schools are for  emergency classroom accommo-  ' dations only���to eliminate the  use df portable and basement  classrooms.  The additions are :  y Six classrooms for Sechelt Elementary, at a cost of $174,100;  ^i Three science areas to be built  aTbbve. the new science wing at  Elphinstone Secondary, at a cost  of $154,800;  r; Total cost for Referendum No.  10, $328,900, a school board news  release announces.  Although we are using the  number 10 or ��� Referendum No.  10, it has little or. no similarity  to the previously proposed Referendum No. 10 in is content or  dollar . cost, the board's news  release continues. The six classrooms for Sechelt elementary  are to replace six portable classrooms at this school. The depart  ment of education will allow us  to go to referendum to replace  all of these portables. The original school plan for Sechelt  elementary will be used as much  as possible to maintain an attractive a well as an educationally acceptable building.  The science areas at Ephin-  stone secondary are a duplication of the facilities that were  'built at the end of last year. The  "rooms will be built above the  new science wing. The school's  present population of 648 students' requires four science  rooms. This addition to the existing, new science wing will  centralize the science area. We  will then renovate the old science facilities which are located  in the original building to regular classrooms. This will eliminate the use of inadequate basement classrooms and portables.  We now ask for your support.  It is up to the voters, to give  the board final approval.

In summing up Mayor Peterson  said   apparently   Victoria   was  not averse to letting a school  board pay rent for its quarters  rather   than   assume  half   the  cost of the board having its own  building. He said reserved land  near  Twilight Theatre on  the  highway has been mentioned as  a possible .site for a school board  office.

There is one hope which should be outlined and it is that the  chief educational force we have ��� our schools ��� will do something about it and set up at proper grade level a course which  will offer clarity outside of the actual legislation so that the sense  of freedeom and a new sense of responsibility, as mentioned by  Hon. Mrs. Dawson's review on the act, will have some force behind  it. -  There are a- good many young Canadians 19 and under buried  in various parts of the world as a result of their efforts to defend  the Canadian ideal. If they are capable of dying at that age they  should also be capable of assuming responsibilities in the world  of the living ��� but they should be directed to regard the Age of  Majority Act and the Bill of Rights not as a couple of keys that  will open doors irresponsibly but as a means of .widening their scope  of interest in the general well-being of the nation.  Memo to Mr. A.T. Kent!  The Queens go to Sea is the heading on an interesting article  in the current issue of B.C. Motorist. The author is A. T. Kent.  He is going to be corrected on a couple of points which are glaring errors.  He states he boarded the ferry at Horseshoe Bay for Langdale  on Sechelt Peninsula. Langdale never was or ever will be on Sechelt Peninsula. The peninsula is 16 miles distant and starts at  Sechelt: '  '  His second statement, really unbelieyeable, reads that he travelled 25 miles of twisting scenic highway to Earl's Cove. Earl's  Cove is 52 riiiles from Langdale. However George Bernard Shaw  maintained that success covers a multitude of blunders so perhaps  Mr. Kent can toe called successful.

I am one  who doesn't believe in spending  too much time in criticising other parties. They have their own  views. I have mine.  The New Democratic Party,  as best I can determine, has  taken up its old familiar battle  cry. The White Paper is designed to protect the rich and  grind the faces of the poor. It  seems to me that there, is always the suggestion in NDP  speeches and platforms that  actually most of us don't need  to pay taxes at all. That there's  a little knot of rich people and  if we just take the money from  them, there'll be plenty of it to  go around and the country wiil  run itself on their taxes.  I endeavoured recently to determine what happens if we  confiscated all the wealth of  Canadians holding more than  $100,000 in cash in their hands.  And far as I could get the result,  if we took every cent these people owned, .not merely put them  under high taxes but confiscated  as is done in re volutions., we  would then have enough cash  to run the country for approximately 5V_ years. In time  they'd be paupers, of course,  and we'd have to pauperize the  next richest group of Canadians  until we were all paupers together.  I'm sure some of you want to  say that this is exactly what the  White Paper sets out to do. I  suggest you study the paper before you make that claim. The  entire shift of the taxation burden it represents is less than we  pay out every year in family  allowances, a social welfare  scheme that Canadians have accepted for amost 30 years.  Now I turn briefly to the position taken by the Conservative  party. Mr. Stanfield says abandon the White Paper. Burn it.  It's true that this is the outgrowth of a taxation reform study ordered by the Conservative  government in 1962, but lets  throw it out anyway. Well, if  Mr. Stanfield wishes to nail his  party's flag to the mast of the  issue, let him do so. But I'm  afraid he must sooner or later  answer some questions. In his  first speech of the trans-Canada  campaign against the White Paper, given in Kingston last  month, Mr. Stanfield suggested  that what we rieeded was higher  tax exemptions than the White  Paper suggests.  I think this is a wonderful idea  and I wish it could be brought  about. However it neglects one  factor. An income tax exemption of this magnitude deprives  the treasury of $95,000,000 per  year. And I suggest that unless  you can suggest how that deficit is going to be made up, then  you're not really contributing to  the debate at all. You're merely  dealing in the old promise auction again. '  Now, it may appear that I'm  defending the White Paper and  defending the Liberal party of  which I am a member. What I  am endeavoring to say to you is'  something quite different.  What I am erideavoririg to say  is that the White Paper is an  extremely important document.  It has great potential for good ,  and bad. It raises questions of  fundamental philosophy of taxation. It has some points that  seem, to me at least, obviously  bad, but above all it deserves  more effective criticism than  its been getting.  Let me give you a couple of  examples of ' totally ineffective  criticism. There's a weekly  newspaper I could quote to the  effect that it's all _a conspiracy  to turn Canada into a socialist  republic, run by Quebec. This,  gentlemen, is * stratospheric  theory, so far removed from the  hard ground of practical realities that it isn't worth answering.  Let me turn to a rather lar  ger organization. The government of Ontario. This is, in my  humble opinion and for what it's  worth, a well goverend province.  However the Ontario government chose to enter the White  Paper debates as a government  and* it issued a set of figures  with which it attacked the White  Paper.  I can only surmise that Ontario hired the same public relations consultants who have  mounted the newspaper advertising campaign against the tax  reform, in which all manner of  inaccuracies have appeared. It's  been claimed that everybody's  going to have to value their property every five years, and pay  capital gains on the supposed  increase of capital value, even  if it's piece of art or Mother's  string of natural pearls. This  is pure fancy. Nothing of the  sort was ever suggested by the  White Paper. Another is that  all small businesses will have no  choice except to start paying 50  percent income tax on all their  profits. This is false.  I might as well review some  of the wrongheaded criticisms  of the White Paper that are being spread by the few people  who can afford full page advertisements in such national newspapers as the Globe and Mail.  The poor, gentlemen don't have  funds to advertise their cause.  One of the claims is that the  burden of new taxation falls on  the middle income group. The  middle income group in Canada  is not those earning over $10,000  a year. In the last year of record, only 7.5 percent of Canadian taxpayers earned more  than $10,000 The percentage of  the general population would be  about 2% percent.  The middle income group numerically, are those between  $5,000 and $10,000 annual in.  come. They earn 46 percent of  the national wealth of Canada,  and they pay 44 percent of the  taxes. Under the proposed formula, taxes would be lower for  single people earning up to $3,-  400 a year, for married people  up to $9,100 and for married  taxpayers with two children up  to about $10,000. For a married  pair with two children, earning  $15,000 a year, the annual tax  increse would be $177.  Well I'm sorry if - have to say  this, but my heart is not ripped  apart for a $15,000 a year man  who is faced with an extra  $12.25 a month in income taxes.  We are also told that the new  taxation system would cut into  savings. It would. The government's estimates are that it  would reduce savings by four  percent. I don't like this. But I  also don't like the distortion of  the fact as represented by the  critics. I want some proportion  in their criticism arid the pro-  portion which is: The money,  the Canadian currency, is inflating at more than four per-  cerit per year. If government  could stabilze the value of the  dollar, the loss of savings, four  percerit, would more than foe offset. I'm not suggesting it's capable of doing this, but let me  ���.'���Sryvwz?." ���  ��� ���$���/''  For Real Estate on the  Sunshine Coast  K. CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

Small boat passengers prone  to seasickness should take the  . following action whenever they  begin to feel a little uneasy: instead of watching the waves,  they should fix their gaze on sta  tionary objects within the boat.  Folks with this particular malady should sit in the middle of  the boat, where the pitching and  rolling, is least.  If you attempt to pull away  from a dock in forward gear,  your stern will bump against  the dock. Instead, caution the  Mercury outboard people, back  away slowly from the dock and  shift to forward only when  you're well clear.  At the end of a fishing trip,  stop your motor by disconnecting,  the fuel line and allowing the  motor to run at idling speed until it stops of its ow accord, indicating that the carburetor has  run dry. That way, say the Mer  cury boating authorities, there's  no chance of fuel running-out in  the trunk of your car. >������  Ordinary pipe cleaners are  perfect for twisting around coils  of monofilament and leaders to  keep the wiry material from becoming    hopelessly    entangled.

It is commonly known that the  young people of today are maturing in body and mind at a  much earlier age than did preceding generations. This bill will  recognize this fact and provide  an age of majority that will  give these young people a new  sense of freedom and a new  sense of responsibility in our  modern society.  The old adage of giving someone the key to the door, when"  they reach the age of 21, had  more connotations than the key  implies. Basically, it inferred  that a young person until 21 was  an adolescent, who was incapable of making sound decisions  without advice and who could  not have any active role in business, elections or organizations.  The establishment of the age  of majority at 21 dates back to  the Norman Conquests in England in 10.66. A period in the  Middle Ages, and here we are  approaching the 21st. Century  and still trying to apply middle age processes to our young  people in British Columbia.  Many major advancements  were made in the 20th Century,  man has made longer strides  than in any other period in history and especially the last 25  years. Much of this progress  can be attributed to the dedication and hard work of young  men and women in all fields of  endeavor. Surely the finest tribute we can pay is to recognize  them as adults at an earlier age  and give them all the rights and  privileges that society condones  upon reaching the age of majority. "  Much concern has been given  to the lowering of the age of  majority in other governments  throughout the world. In Britain,  Sweden and here in Canada,  Ontario studies have been conducted and reports provided, on  this topic. For Canada, we in  British Columbia can set the  standard, by being the first to  lower the age. We thus recognize that British Columbia is a  province of young ideas, young  ambitions and young hopes. By  reducing the age to 19 we cut  across all the statutes in Bri-  ish Columbia concerning the  law.  Upon reaching the age of 19  Coast News, April 15, 1970.   3  A MUSICAL PRELUDE  Sunday morning's service at  Gibsons United church featured  Rev. R.M. and Mrs. Warne in  a violin and organ recital which  presented Barowski's Adoration,  Joy is Like the Rain, How great  Thou Art and the Holy City.  Mr. Warne who is superintendent of Home Missions was the  violinist with Mrs. Warne at the  organ. The musical preceded  the regular service. Mr. Warne  also delivered the sermon.    ���  men and women will take on all  legal responsibilities of con  tracts, deeds, regulations, litigation, voting and the freedom  , of decision to drink and the freedom  to marry.  This bill provides the recognition of an individual reaching  the age of majority of 19, at  the commencement of the relevant anniversary of the date of  his or her birth. In passing this  bill, which becomes effective  April 15, British Columbia sets  a precedent in Canada and gives  the young people of our prov-  vince a new freedom and a new  responsibility.  wittMroMimwiHimm^wuraimwmnn'Jiinmiv.mtiuiiiiiiri  MOVES TO PORT MacNEILL  John Robinson, his wife and  family left Friday morning for  Port MacNeil, Vancouver Island  where Mr. Robinson will be  working for Canadian Propane,  Vancouver Island division.  uui_nnmmmranuuumimim��nnninmttmra��um��ninmmH    MAVERICK ��� FALCON ��� FAIRLANE ��� MUSTANG ��� T-BIRDS  09 ��  >  *���i  B  I  Blake C.

H. R. and Van  step down  H.R. MacMillan, dean of the  Canadian forest industry, and  W.J. VanDusen, his friend and  associate for almost 60 years,  have retired,from the board of  directors of MacMillan Bloedel  limited, the company they  helped found.  Both MacMillan and VanDusen accepted nominations as  honorary directors. The board of  directors has made this nomination in recognition of their  long association with the company and the influence which  they have had on the development of the forest industry.  The chairman Hon. J.V. Clyne  also announced the retirement  from the board of E.G. Shorter,  vice chairman and a director  since 1956, who is retiring after  , more than 30 years with Mac-"  Millian Bloedel, and F.B. Brown  a director since 1960 and a member of the executive committee.  Shorter will be a consultant to  the company.  MacMillan and VanDusen, H.  R. and Van as they are known  in the forest industry, first met  in 1909. H.R. had his masters  degree in forestry from Yale  and at 24 was the federal a|-  sistant director of forestry. VanDusen was 20, a student at University of Toronto considering  forestry as a career. An hour-  long conversation was the starting point for their lifelong friendship and business association  VanDusen graduated in forestry  in 1812.  MacMillan became the chief  forester of B..C. and shortly af-.  terwords persuaded VanDusen,  .who was a federal forestry supervisor in Alberta, to come to  B.C. as assistant to the chief of  management of the B.C. Forest  Service. VanDusen was later  first professional district forester in B.C.  During the First World War,  MacMillan worked in Ottawa dir  ecting production of Queen  Charlotte Island spruce for airplanes. When he decided to  start his own business and  formed H.R. MacMillan Export  Co. in 1919, his first recruit was  VanDusen, who became manager and a shareholder. The two  were interested only in export  business.  . CAPT. GORDON HOPKINS ,.  Early resident  celebrates 85  Capt. Gordan S. Hopkins, of  Hopkins Landing celebrated his  85th birthday April 9 not long  after the celebration March 3  of the 50th. wedding anniversary.  Capt. Hopkins who was born  in England in 1885 has lived in  Hopkins Landing area for all  but a few years since 1908. He  came to Canada in 1906 with his  father George H. Hopkins who  founded Hopkins Landing in 1907.  For some 20 years he captained tugboats along $ie coastal area for Hopkins Bros. Towing Co. During the first war he  served with the Royal Canadian  Regiment and in the second war  with the department of national  defence in Vancouver.  The home in which he now  lives was the first prefabricated  home in this area, having been  built iii Vancouver and then erected in Hopkins Landing in  1908.  Back in 1920, on March 3, he  married (fathering Loutit in Vancouver. _a> the family are three  daughters, Mrs F. -Hitchcock  (Grace) of Prince Rupert, now  visiting at the Hopkins home;  Mrs. L. M.

Locks changed  It was reported at last week's  school board meeting that as a  result of the holdup on March  18 little money was stolen. In  all the total amount obtained  was $188 and some of it was in  the form of cheques which would  be difficult to cash. School money stolen totalled $45 and money  collected by students for various uses totalled $143. It is the  practice to keep little money on  school premises.  Insurance investigators are  now checking on the loss and  should have a report" for the  next school meeting.  The report on the incident noted that the intruders ignored  items of value seeking cash only  A concealed safe combination  was discovered by the intruders.  All desks in the office were ransacked and contents strewn on  the floor.  Because a set of school keys  was taiken from the janitor on  duty it has become necessary to  . change the most important locks  in the building.  In the meantime, the RCMP  are continuing investigating the  holdup which janitor G. Thomas  was beaten into submission at  about 12:15 a.m. He notified  the RCMP at 1:25 a.m.  Bursary for  future nurse  Closes May 31  Pender Harbour Auxiliary to  St. Mary's Hospital held its April 9 meeting in.Madeira Park  Legion haJl with Mrs. O.

Buying a stereo is a bit like  buying a car. .you have a truly  vast range from which to choose  and there are so many combinations of style, price and equipments that it becomes a genuine  problem to select the type best  suited to your particular needs  To begin with, decide just how  excellent stereophonic sound  you want. The whole point of  stero is that it enables a recording to sound like the original  live sound. That's the difference  between a record player and a  stereo.  The excellence of the sound  you will get depends upon the  quality of its components and  the way they are assembled in  the cabinet. This is not to say  a lower priced stereo is no good.  ���Far from it. It might well be  that the people who will listen  to the recordings have no desire to hear the shades and nuances of perfect stereo.  A  stereo consists   of a   turntable and pickup;   an AM/FM  receiver (tuner); a control unit;  . dual audio power amplifiers and  dual    loudspeaker    assemblies.  Usually these     are  all  housed  in  one cabinet which also provides    space for    records and  quite  often,  space for a tape-  recorder which is optional equipment.  If you want  to wait to  buy a tape-recorder later, now  is the time to make sure your  set  has   the  necessary  outlets,  wiring and space for it installation. In some stereos the speakers    are    separate  . .satellite  .    speakers to be placed on bookshelves,   furniture   or   in   other  parts of the house.  Anglican, United  colleges unite  to form centre  The Anglican and United  church Colleges, both affiliated  with the University of British  Columbia are joining forces as  the initial step in the development of a strong Theological  Centre.  On Feb. 24th, the boards of  governors of Union Collge of B.  C. and the Anglican Theological  College of B.C. met jointly to con  sider the proposal, and then,  meeting separately under their  respective chairmen, Ralph C.  Pybus and J. Alan Broadbent,  vbted unanimously to pool their  resources and to move at once  towards establishment of an ecumenical theological centre in  which it is hoped other denominations will become active participants.  At the present the two Colleges are the only ones on the campus actively involved in training  men and women for full-time  ministry.  While Anglican and Union Colleges have accepted the organizational responsibility for the  new centre, it is expected that  other denominations will become  active participants. With their  co-operation a broad program  will be developed offering training for full-time professional  ministry and providing resources for people who plan to enter other professions.

This workout was the second held by the institute and it  dealt with problems affecting  all phases of company operation  from the owner's own thinking  down to employee level.  Equipment problems, maintenance, how to get the best out  of productivity and motivation  through effective delegaion of  the problem, a. staff. skills inventory, improved effectiveness  of leadership skills, profit leaks,  accident cost examples and  what was termed unplanned events, meaning those accidents  lacking personal injury yet a  costly item to. the budget.

WELFARE   FUND  flALL-^.%]niii.:  The examination of activities  and methods now being done,  together with those which could  be done well, occupy the attention of the participants in this  program.  By ceasing to do those things  which obviously are of little value, we can obtain the time o  to carry out the study of projects and methods for performing them.  Increasing effectiveness is desirable and achievable when we  introduce changes in our operation which enables us to produce increased results for each  unit of time.  It is a principle applying to  any group of business activities  that a limited few produce most  of the results or most of the  costs. The two resiilts are not  necessarily related.  In the passage of time the results or costs produced by an  activity tend to change. Periodic examination is recommended, Pareto advice concluded.  Under brainstorming, described as a dramatic, energetic  approach to the imagineering  part of planning or problem  solving process for development of a large number of alternative solutions the process of  how to proceed was outlined.  By boiling the problem down to  a clear simple question a great  deal could be done.  Successful    management,    it  was argued, depends on the ef-'\  fective  allocation  of resources.  The natural allocation is not usually most effective.     Twenty  .percent   of  events   produce  80  "percent of" results wbile^SO. percent of events produce only 20  percent of results. There must  be a decision on events that are  significant so proper time can  be allocated to them for best effect.  Some remarks during discussion in various phases of the  seminar were:  Safety programs are good but  improved efficiency is also a big  help.  Perspiration not admired as  much now as it used to be.  Remove inhibitions to new ideas.  If men are not doing what  management wants it is the fault  of the management.  In some cases employees  should not be blamed. It could  be the    fault of    management,  student reaches  academic heights  Dr. Alan G.'

Cotton knits that simulate  the look of hand crocheted patterns, boucle knits and printed  knits are perfect for the young,  easy silhouettes and so practical for moderns on the move.  There are crisp, textured cottons * for brisk : daytime coats,  suits and dresses with sharp,  clear cut checks, or plaids that  accentuate    their    clean    fresh  look.  Sturdy denims show exciting  new faces this year with their  vivid color sharpened by white  stitching in chic little outfits  with real dash. Fashion denims  perhaps best illustrate cotton's  terrific talent for color and look  epecially great with the new  fashion for chalk white accents.

School teachers seeking positions .with other school boards  are now in a dilemma. As the  result of the Vancouver newspaper strike there is no clearing  house forf teachers wanted advertising. As a result copious  correspondence is the rule and  the local school board expects  to receive close to 300 applications for positions.  It is not expected all 300 are  seeking a position in this area  but it is necessary for teachers  to cover as wide a field as they  can in order to get what they  feel is the position they require.  The present teacher correspondence, for the local school board  is now past- the 250 mark and-  more are expected.

He wrote me saying he would  sell it to me for $4,500 and the  letter said I had a week to make  up my mind. The next day I  wrote him and said we had a  deal. Now he won't sell it to nie.  In fact, he sold it to someone  else for more money. Did we  have a contract or not?  A. Yes. Every contract must  have, amongst other things, an  offer and an acceptance. There  is a valid offer here and it has  been accepted. You should consult a lawyer about your rights  and the exact legal steps to take  to protect. them.        !  Q. Our company subscribes to  a trade catalogue  and one issue advertised a pump of certain  specifications for  sale for  $5,000. we replied and ordered  it; We received a letter saying  it now  cost  $6,500.  Don't  they  have to sell it. to us for $5,000?  A. No. There is no contract in  existence    under these circumstances.     Every contract must  have an  offer and an acceptance. Here we have a offer but  no   acceptance.   The   advertisement is not an offer as such.  Offers, by means of advertisement,     flyers,     statements in  trade N catalogues  etc.   are hot  offers in the legal sense. This  type of offer is an offer to treat,  an invitation to bargain or trans  act   business   or   a   statement  of intention. Your reply to the  ad is an offer���_nd it has not  been  accepted.   There was,  in  taw, a second offer. The reply  to your offer to purchase, is an  offer  to you���-which  you  have  not   accepted���so   there   is  no  contract.  Q. I saw an ad in the paper  advertising TV's for $250 but  when I went to the store .the  salesman said they were sold  outi and he tried to sell me a  J. C. -email new  J.C. (Ian) Leman, District  Park Officer at Prince George  has been appointed district park  officer for the Vancouver Park  District of the provincial parks  system with headquarters at 652  Burrard Street.  Mr. Leman will be responsible I for the administration and  management of all provincial  parks in the Vancouver district,  an area that stretches from Man  ning Park to Garibaldi Park  an<l includes such heavily used  parks as Cultus Lake, Golden  Ears, and Mount Seymour as  well as the marine parks of the  Sunshine Coast.  Mr. Leman was born in Ayrshire, Scotland and came to British Columbia in 1957, joining  the provincial parks branch the  same year. He was employed,  in various capacities in the  branch over the next nine years  including regional supervisor of  the Garibaldi Region. In 1966 he  moved to Prince George as district park officer.  more expensive  set.  Can I do  anything?  A No. This is the old come on  advertisement. The ad is not  a legal offer���see the answer to  the  second question.  Q. I saw a 2nd hand caterpillar in a lot with other machinery for sale and the price tag  said. $4,000. It was in good shape  so I jumped at it. Then the  salesman said there was a mistake in the decimal point and  the tag should have read $40,000.  I claim we have a contract. We  got in quite an argument and  the sales manager said it was  much too low a price, which actually is true, and they made a  mistake, etc. Can I force them  , to sell?  A. No. See the answer to the  second question. The price tag  is similar to an advertisement.  If you sued the prospective sellers they would not get anywhere with the argument of mistake, or the argument that the  sale price was inadequae. People can enter into a contract to  sell at any price and the court  is not concerned with the ques-  ion of the adequacy of the sale  price. They would be sure^ however, to raise the argument that  your offer was not accepted���  and neither it was. You and the  prospective seller could have  entered into the Contract you  desire, however, if the salesman had accepted your offer  to buy for. $4,000 and made delivery and you had paid etc.,  this would have been a valid  contract���but he picked up tftte  error in time.
