Winners were, Div. 7, Gibsons Cougars, Div.  6, Sechelt Timbermen and Div. 4, Gibsons Legion.  Walt wpr^h  dallied1 and;had a swim at Davis Bay; Walkers were also aided by Jack Clements' soft drinks  which cooled palates arid mem-  4>ers of the local radio organization patrolled the route but  there were no accidents.  There were a few blisters but  only 14 failed to reach school  Monday morning. Mr. Yablonski  was quite pleased with the turnout of parents at the finish.  Two hundred walkers and almost $3,000 pledged appears to  be the result of Sunday's walk  to Sechelt on behalf of Elphinstone Secondary school trampoline and other projects. Sponr  sors were teachers Gene Yablonski, June Wilson and Les Peterson.  Winner of the walk was Peter  Carey who took two hours. Some  A dozen representatives from  Roberts Creek, Gibsons Rural  arid "Langdale' divisions of ithe  Regional District attended a  Centennial organization meeting  Friday night at Elphinstone  school. .,  The meeting called by Regional board Directors Cliff Gilker,  Frank West and Lome Wolverton heard D. M. McCooey, pro^  vincial Centennial consultant,  outline the objectives of Centennial committees.  It was possible for communities to merge Centennial objectives, resulting in the pooling of  resources. There would be 40  cents available for celebrations  and a grant of 60 cents on a population basis. The 60 cent grant  must be matched by a similar  local amount.  There are now three Centennial committees operating on the  Tourist booth  for Gibsons area  Aid. Ken Crosby reporting to  Gibsons council at its April 28  meeting said that high costs involved in hiring travel counsellors on the ferries, will cause  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce  to look, into using available  funds for a tourist booth/  He was informing council of  what transpired at a meeting  of government Tourist and Ferry authorities.  While in Vancouver to discuss  the travel counsellor problem  he also had a look at the production of the tourist brochure  Gibsons will be receiving about  mid-May. He regarded it as a  worthwhile project. Mayor Wally Peterson, George McNicol  and Mike Blaney made up the  party to discuss the travel coun  sellor project.  METZLER COMMENT  Mayor Wally Peterson at the  April 28 meeting of Gibsons  council commenting on the resignation of J. S. Metzler as secretary-treasurer of the school  district said tha "any man who  can pull- down a school budget  as he did in less than two years  must foe pretty good."  meeting  Sunshine;Cqast, Gibsons, Sechelt  and Se&fisi * Park with; which rWifev  son Creek has merged. Mr. McCooey said the cutoff date for  formation of committees will be  May 31. No date has been set on  a cutoff for projects.  An art report  Reported by Charlotte Bandi,  with Grade 4 class, Sechelt Elementary School;  Starbursts of color dyed in  cotton, rainbow-colored belts and  bags of wool, pots and animals  modelled from clay, Indian  masks strikingly painted, of  paper mache and many paintings, drawings and prints will  go on display May 6 to16 at the  Gallery Shop, Sechelt. The work  is a selection of that done by  grades 4 to 7 in art and Cultural Heritage classes at Sechelt  Elementary school.   s  There will be handbags woven  of many colors and thickness of  wool. These are woven on cardboard. There will be belts woven  on a belt loom made of wood.  God's Eyes are woven of wool  on two sticks placed like a cross  and tied together. They are, an  idea from the Huachole Indians  of Mexico.  To make the dyed fabrics we  tie string around the cotton to  make circles or else lines. To  make lines we fold it like a fan,  then we dye it.  Mr. Reid's Cultural Heritage  class has copied their masks  from Indian patterns. They look  like real wooden dance masks.  There will also be paintings,  drawings and prints. One kind  of print is made by rolling out  ink on a glass slab. We put a  piece of paper on the slab, draw  a design on it and then pull off  the paper. Then we have a  print! .  We hope you can come and  see our display.

Here is the report on two cas:;  es which were involved in last  week's court hearings.  A juvenile appeared charged  with possession of marijuana'  he was remanded until May 5.  He was released on |200 bail..  Subject was arrested when the  police checked the bush behind  the Gibsons Riding Club.      %   ;  Another juvenile was arrestedV'  for traffickirig in narcotics af-^  ter a complaint was received-  from a local parent.

The parents an<fc  juvenile Witnesses concerned;:  were commended for coming.;  forward to give this information^  as this kind of co-operation from -  he' public is a great assist to  the police.  John Winters McClusky whose  home address is given as Eg-  mont was instantly killed shortly before 11 p.m. Friday night  when his car crashed into a tree  on  the   cemetery   side   of   the  highway. Police estimate the car  must c have taken the cemetery  corner on the highway at a high  rate of speed. He is understood  to have been working for a logging company at Port Mellon.  The RCMP and fire department  were called out. The engine was  on fire 10 feet, away from the  car. Firemen had to use jacks  to get the body out of the car.  An inquest is not deemed necessary.  school  and wives  visit area  Fifty Royal Arch Masons and  wives of Seattle chapters with  40 more and wives from North  and West Vancouver visited the  Sunshine Coast Saturday and  Sunday for a meeting Saturday  at the Masonic Hall, Roberts  Creek.  Local wives looked after en-  . tertainment and the party viewed a Sunshine Coast Arts Council display of art work and ceramics at Lord Jim's Lodge during the morning and afternoon.  The entire party congregated  at Roberts Creek Community  Hall for a social hour at 6:30 followed by a dinner catered by  Sechelt Legion Ladies Auxiliary  with entertainment following.  There were puppet songs and  Georgian Chapter North Vaneou  ver staged the skit The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter. Dancing followed. On Sunday the party explored the area then left  for home.  Grans, Moms  on long walk  John Hayes, proprietor of Sechelt Theatre was elected by acclamation to fill the school board  seat. left vacant by the retire-  men of Rev. Barry Jenks. Mr.  Jenks moved to Nanaimo into  another Anglican church charge.  Roberts Creek Grans and  Moms had their own walkathon  to Sechelt Sunday and obtained  $140 from sponsors on behalf of  Elphinstone trampoline fund.  It started when daughter Mrs.  Celia Fisher dared mother Mrs.  L. Flumerfelt to start a walkathon. She offered $10 as a sponsor. The result was that more  sponsors and walkers were obtained and five of them set out  Sunday afternoon. The five were  Mrs. L. Butler, Mrs. L. Flumerfelt, Mrs. L. Hughes, Mrs. V.  Beeman and Mrs. J. Eldred. As  a result the drive was enriched  by $140 and mothers say they  never felt better. There were 34  sponsors for the walk.  Red Power representatives  from points in Canada and the  United States at Sechelt Friday,  strived to force Father Power to  resign as administrator of the  Sechelt .Residential School so  they could take over; They failed to achieve their objective.  Father Power at a confrontation meeting in the Residential  ^;schopl ��ri4ay,night4nfpr  ���Red Power delegates that he had  already resigned and that Father Dunlop would be taking  oyer on Monday.  Monday morning three members of Red Power dropped in at  the Coast News on their way  back to Vancouver and left a  copy of a resolution bearing 33  signatures of students which  they said Father Dunlop had accepted for consideration. The  three were Robert Hall of Sar-  dis, Brian . Clark of Vancouver  and Ken Basil of Cache Creek.  Basis of the objective of Red  Power delegates was a long list  of student complaints under the  heading Prisons or Schools. This  document contained some libellous words. The second document, the resolution passed  along with the return of pupils  to the school, was much milder.  The sheet containing complaints, available at Sechelt Friday afternoon, revealed that  groups from Vancouver, Victoria  and the U.S. would meet in Sechelt on May 1 outside the fence  of the school to help the children achieve, as the sheet outlined, goals of rights and fair  treatment, demand changes, demand resignation of self-admitted dictator priest and be there  to protect our women and children in the event of force.  Shortly after 1:30 p.m. Friday  the Coast News received a phone  call stating there would be a  demonstration in front of the  school. On arrival the Coast  News noted the CBC was there  with a camera taking pictures.  It was ascertained that the CBC  received a copy of the list of  complaints  eai*lier.  The early crowd of about 40  youths with a few oldsters, started with the aid of a tom-tom, to  whip up enthusiasm. A circle of  sigh carrying youths went into  action. Some of the cards contained slogans such Indian Power not Father Power; Racism-  Pc'iee Brutality go Hand in  Hand; Down with Roman Ca-  tho'ic Dictatorship; Liberate our  Children; Pilgrim Go Home. It  was explained that Pilgrim  meant Father Power.  The crowd increased after 4  p.m. when a bus load of children from the Elementary school  joined the throng.  Spokesmen for the event maintained that they would maintain  their blockade until'the resigna-  ion of Father Power had been  received.  At that time none of them  knew Father Power^had offered  his resignation previously due to  ill health, on Oblate order-authorities;--^at^ri^^  rival said he had been warned  two months ago he was to take  over the school.)  Later in the evening Father  Power faced a delegation of protestors only one of which was  local. The others were outsiders.  Fr. Power stated he informed the delegation he had resigned and refused to turn the Residence over to them. Father Pow  er explained that he listened to  considerable abuse but managed in spite of being upset by  the occurrence to absorb it without heat. He added he intended  leaving on Monday.  As the result of the arrival of  Red Power, pupils of the school  left the Residential school premises. Sechelt Band Council had  arranged they could be sheltered in the band's community hall,  which they were until their return to school Monday.  Bob Hall and Pauline Hause  reported to the Sechelt Band  Council April 30 meeting of their  interview with the students, and  all complaints are recorded, to  be submitted to the proper authorities. Bob Hall mentioned that  approximately 150 students will  visit Sechelt and demand changes in the administration of the  Student Residence and will stay  in the area till changes are  made to the satisfaction of all  parties concerned.  Chief H. Paul! and the council stated that they were aware  of the complaints by the students but were not too involved  as most local students are at  home.  /  Band council also stated that  many changes have been made  in the Student Residence, which  was felt coming back to the old  system which has created a  problem to the students and the  parents.  Band council donated the sum  of $200 to the cause, also lodging, and decided to support the  movement providing it is under  control. Band Council would  keep law and order.  A resolution mentioned in the  band minutes as drawn up and  signed by council reads as follows:  That whereas, students of the  Sechelt Indian Students Residence at Sechelt, B.C. have com  plained of he unsatisfactory administration of the residence;  Arid whereas a number of Vancouver Indian Students are to<  visit with the students here at.  Sechelt;  And whereas the Sechelt Band:  Council request that in any demonstrations must be no volence  and must be handled in a peace-  ^mt^nnhe^^'  And whereas, the chief and  council will keep law and order  on the reserve;  Be it hereby resolved that under these conditions: we grant  permission to visiting students to  remain on our reserve and will  be accommodated.  The minutes of Council continue:  Complaints were also made to  Council as to why there was no  band taking part in the May Day  parade. Former trainer of the  school band felt very unhappy on  learning no school band on May  Day.  It was also pointed out that  many students have run away  from the Residence, also some  students have been expelled,  but none have been expelled  from the schools they are attending. Some of these students  went home for their Christmas  and Easter holidays and never  returned.  Present were Chief Henry  Paul!, chairman; Joe Paull, Mrs  Sadie Johnson, also band manager and secretary Clarence  Joe. Attending were Bob Hall,  Federal Youth council, and  Pauline Hanuse, secretary.  Klahoose council at Squirrel  Cove and Holmaka band at  Church House passed the follow-  ong resolution:  Whereas the- students of the  Sechelt Students Residence, at  Sechelt, B.C., have complained  of the unsatisfactory administration of the residence;  And whereas a number of students have been expelled from  the residence since September  1969;  And whereas a number of students have run away from the  Residence;  And whereas a number of Vancouver Island students have visited with the Sechelt Residence  students and threatened public  demonstrations:  Therefore be it resolved that  the administrator of the Sechelt  Indian School Residence be replaced.  Chief George Harry, S. H. Pi-  elle and Lillian Hill signed for  Klahoose band and Chief Solomon Harry and Ambrose Wilson  signed for Homaka. Coast News, May 6, 1970.

It being a Wednesday, the night the  Ottawa House does not sit, the Hill is almost empty. A few offices  of members who own television sets are filled with MPs, wives,  executive assistants, secretaries and other political animals, enjoying politics' most exciting moments.  Ottawa people are by nature federalists, so there is general ju-;  Dilation at the defeat of Rene Levesque and his party of separatism. Union National, which talked separatism for '74 during the  campaign, is also left shattered by one of the heaviest voter turnout Canadian politics sees.  An evening marred only by C.B.C.'s atrocious election coverage. A public hungry for facts about the voting got them scantily  and tardily. CB.C.'s idea of news coverage seemed to be the presentation of assorted pundits who considered their opinions on the  significance of it all to be of much more interest than the purveying of solid^ information.  An audience survey might well reveal that a majority .of Canadian viewers are sated with this glutinous diet of punditry. For  weeks preceding the election,- newspapers and television lectured  us on what would happen in Quebec. . -  On election night, when Quebec voters failed to behave as the  prophets forecast, we were obliged to spend our evening hearing  the same cabal of pundits, readjusting their banalities to a changed situation.  Coast News comment: We agree!  A valuable property!  The Sunshine Coast is becoming a valuable piece of property.  Just look at the change in tax'assessments. In 1960 the total assessment for the school district was $22,547,100 and today it has a  $52,856,326 valuation.  Naturally we have grown. There are more homes and homes  of more value. Real estate values have skyrocketed in some areas  and the two villages have expanded their boundaries!.  Here is the position as it affects the municipalitess of Gibsons  and Sechelt. The 1960 assessment for Gibsons was $1,477,333 and  today it is $3,678,864. .There is of course the expansion of Gibsttns  boundary to take into consideration.  Sechelt in 1960 was assessed at $860,067 and today the figure is  Sl,647,287 and in this there is an extension of village boundaries.  06 top nf this one must also consider the inflationary condition  of the times which has been fairly heavy. There is the; gehlerai  maxim that during inflationary periods it is wise to buy real estate, diamonds or gold.' Well we have the real estate to offer and  it is being snapped up.  One should also take a peek at what 'the homeowner grant has  done in that period. In I960 it hit- the $50 mark. Today it is $160?,  In this there is ground for study so if there is: someone who has the  time to work out a solution to the problem the Coast News would  welcome some help on it.  Positive action needed  BY RON CRUICE  President, Kinsmen Club  of Gibsons and District  Riots, Revolution unrest, dope,  pill parties, conflict with the  establishment. All of these are  ;a part of our young generation  What does it mean? Where will  it end? What can we do?  The first <question is relatively  ^easy to answer. Our young people are searching and testing  as we did and as future generations will do. The second question cannot be answered unless  we answer the third, not with  words, but with positive action.  Our young people need direction, not dictatorial commands.  Direction, when given, must create a feeling and a sense of  equality of mind and ability.  We have forced them to a level  of education at the age of 14,  that was seldom achieved by  aged 20 in our day. We have  taught them to think and act  for themselves yet we deny  them this right.  " The National Association of  Kinsmen Clubs feels Kh>20  clubs can give them this opportunity. We can provide direction through our knowledge and  ability in the formation and operation    of a    club.    But    the  important thing is that running a club can give the opportunity to search and test and  find themselves, while providing  a service to their fellow students.  The Kinsmen club of Gibsons  and District, feeling a need in  this community for some sort of  organized activity, originally  planned to put on a series of  teen dances, and for this purpose a committee of teenagers,  Legion members and Kinsmen  was formed. It became obvious  in early discussions that the  young people did not want the  dances run by adults for them.  They preferred' to run it themselves, under adult supervision..  To this end, a group known as  Clique was formed which held  a dance in the Legion Hall during March. They also took on  running of the Drop-ins which  had been held under the supervision of Rev. Dennis Morgan,  every Friday night..  It was felt, as time progressed,  that the group needed the backing of an adult organization, and  asked to become a Kin-20 club  under Gibsons Kinsmen. They  now have 15 enthusiastic hardworking members, and the mem  bership is growing constantly.  They work closely with the  Kinsmen in all their projects.  Our present wave of inflation  is the second since World War H  and all industrialized countries  are being affected by it, says  the Bank of Montreal.  In its April Bushiness Review,  just issued, the B of M examines some of the causes of inflation and the resulting changes  in international competitiveness  The bank warns that trying to  decide whether inflation is a  demand-pull or cost push matter  is a chicken and egg,problem,  but says there is evidence that  cost factors are becoming increasingly important. It looks  particularly at wages and at  what it calls price drift.  Hourly wage earnings have increased much s more rapidly in  recent years than in the 1963-  67 period, a trend which will  certainly continue through 1970.  This is, in part, a normal feature of the business cycle:-, intensified economic activity has  resulted in an increased demand  for labor, and wages have been  bid up. There has also been a  wage drift effect���where the  growth in wage earnings exceeds the growth in wage rates.  The B of M also points out  that there is widespread expectation of continued growth. In  such an amosphere, manage-  men is inclined to agree to large  wage increases.  Wages are also affected by labor militancy. Not only are the  standard reasons still operating  with higher paid workers able to  suppot longer strikes, and key  labor groups exercising increasing monopoly power���but a new  labor generation has grown up  since the war. Respect for union  traditions and leadership is fading. Wildcat strikes, a well  known occurance in Canada and  the United Kingdom, have recently spread to the European  continent���furthermore, the rejection of wage agreements between management and union  leaders by the shop floor is becoming increasingly common in  many countries.  "Pressure on wages is going  to be one of the characteristic  features of the seventies." the B  of M Review predicts.  Because the wage, increases  have not been matched by an  increase in productivity, unit  wage costs have risen. These  have been passed on in higher  prices.  Another factor in inflation is  what the bank terms price' drift  support longer strikes, and key  known occurence in Canada and  what the bank terms price drift.  Consumer demand has shifted  toward convenience products  and package services. Not infrequently, the prices lOf such  goods are higher than those of  the less processed- ��� .while the  price of a service package may  , exceed that of the total of the  components. . .It may be argued  that such ��a price drift is infia-  tionray in so far as it leads to  the widening of profit margins  and provided that the latter is  not offset by any increase in  productivity.  is inflationary in so far as it  leads to the widening of profit  margins and provided that the  latter is not offset by any increase in productivity.  According to the bank, the existence of these important cost-  push factors explains in part  why the anti-inflationary measures which have been introduced���and which are nearly all  demand oriented���have taken  such a long time to be effective.  ���In the area of international  competitiveness, those countries  whose wage costs have risen  more than average have generally experienced a reduction iri  their share of world trade. The  B of M suggests that, this year,  the competitive positions of  France, Japan, and the United  States will probably be affected  favorably and those1 of Italy  trend in unit .wage costs.  Germany and the United Kingdom unfavorably by the expected trend in unit wage costs.  Canada's position is not expected to alter significantly this  .year.  But if the government's  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE  YEARS  AGO  The home of Mr. and Mrs.  William T. Garrison on Roberts  Creek Lower Road was completely destroyed by fire.

April 22, 28, May 6, 13  The directory, Labor Organizations in Canada, 1969 recently  published by the Canada Department of Labor, lists 18 unions  with memberships of 30,000 or  more. TheseN unions accounted  for 52 percent of the 2,075,000  union members in Canada. In  1968 there were 14 unions in thisf  size category and in 1965 there  were 10.  Both the Canadian Labor Congress and the Confederation of  National Trade Unions have  been encouraging mergers among their respective affiliates;  in addition, membership in general has grown.  The total number of union  members throughout Canada  represents a 65,000 or 3.2 percent, increase over 1968.  This, the directory says, results from the natural growth  of existing unions and the inclusion of new unions of government employees, mainly  provincial.  listed in the directory, 85 were  . Of the 101 international unions  affiliated with both the CLC and  the AFL-CIO, four with the  CLC, five with the AFL-CIO,  and seven were independent.  Membership of international  unions comprises 65.0 percent  of the 1969 total. In 1968, it was  66.9 percent.  In 1969, total'union membership in Canada represented 26.3  percent of the total national labor force and 32.5 percent of  non agricultural paid workers.  These percentages are slightly  lower than in 1968, when they  were 26.6 and 33.1 percent respectively.  day hearing before the Civil  Service Commission in Victoria  May 6, 7 and 8.  At the hearings, he said, the  union will press for further increases for liquor store employees, jail service staff, tradesmen, outside workers in the  highways department, all of  whom voted heavily in favor of  turning down the increases.  The union will also try to  negotiate further increases for  fores try workers, laundry workers, some clerical employees  and culinary workers. Most of  these groups also voted against  acceptance of the 7-11 percent  increases.  Fryer said about 1,000 psychiatric nursing aides voted to accept a seven percent wage increase at the branch ratification meetings held throughout  the province this month. About  125 vocational school instructors  also . favored acceptance. They,  received pay boosts of up to 10  percent.  This was the first time that  all members of the BCGEU  have had the chance to vote on  their wage increases. We're  trying to break with the tradition that provincial government  employees must mutely accept  whatever the government sees  fit to hand out, Fryer said.  In recent years, a few branches have conducted ratification  votes and followed them up with  strike votes.  More than 5,500 members of  the B.C. Government Employees' Union have voted to reject  pay increase .ranging from 7  to 11 percent.  BCGEU general secretary,  John L. Fryer said that 51 of  the union's 55 branches have  staged ratification meetings this  month. Results are still to come  from three branches.  He said 5,638 members voted  to reject the government's 1970  wage package and 1,735 voted  to accept it. Nearly 70 percent  of union members cast ballots  in the ratification vote and 76  percent of those voting favored  rejection of the increases.  Fryer said the union will' reopen wage discussions at a three  Vacation-foound? Then it's only natural that you'l be thinking of clothes���what outfit will  be appropriate where, which  fabrics will pack well and look  smart on arrival.  The Canadian Cotton Council  suggests that a good rule to follow in planning your vacation  wardrobe is divide and conquer.  Whether you're planning a long  weekend or a full-fledged vacation in the sun, divide your  wardrobe into sports separates  that multiply into a dozen different combinations. That way  you'll conquer the old question  of what to take and you'll ease  the packing problem too.  Build your capsule wardrobe  around basic elements like pants  and skirts then add a variety  of tops for spice. The same  slim pants that look trim and  tailored with a tunic go feminine when teamed with a voile  body skirt. Pants go to all extremes this summer���from short  A five man labor-management  WCB committee has been formed to review the Workmen's  Compensation Board accident  prevention regulations.   .  The committee, chaired by W  CB Commissioner R.B. Carpenter, will study the regulations  as amended March 1, 1966, and  advise the WCB of any necessary revisions an amendments.  Suggestions from management,  labor and the WCB accident prevention department will be invited during the course of the  review.  We've got the best brains in  British Columbia working on it.  said Mr. Capenter. We hope to  complete the job by the end of  the year.

Skirts are free-swinging, and  they're no longer one length.  They're apt to be referred to as  mini, longuette, or maxi. The  choice is yours. Choose pants  and skirts that are most becoming to you individually and concentrate on a basic color scheme  Summer's color spectrum ranges from misty pastels to stark  white..giving you plenty of leeway to mix and match colors to  your own tastes.  The most popular co-ordinated  sports sets are in cotton duck,  sailcloth, denim and cotton knits  Also firmly established as a seaside fashion is the short play  dress. It's skirted or culotted,  open-armed and easy -waisted.  Favored fabrics for play dresses are crisp white cotton duck  and pique. In choosing your  outfits for summer fun, play it  cool - - with cotton sportswear  that's strictly carefree and com  fortable.

Our school trustees  have called for a referendum on  May 7, to vote for capital expenditure of about $329,000 mainly to  replace our portable classrooms  with permanent structures. The  trustees are to be congratulated  in at long last successfully persuading Victoria to end the  waste of public funds for temporary stop gap solutions, for  which we had to spend close  to $100,000 during the last four  years mostly from local tax levies and without having any  Lasting advantage from such expenditure.  Therefore it makes good sense  for this reason alone to get behind our trustees and vote yes  quite apart from an urgent need  to acquire and develop school  sites, which we are also asked  to approve in the referendum  and which also merits our full  support.  ��� Frank and Mary West  at Christmas Seal campaign  time and their continued co-operation and understanding if  our programs are to be successful.  Thomas   Gowan,   president.  Editor: Port Mellon Hospital  auxiliary members express their  thanks for Coast News coverage  of the fashion show and the attention it received.  We were certainly highly satisfied with the attendance and  very happy that so many people  wanted to help their hospital.  ���Elsie Willis  Editor: Gibsons Hospital auxiliary thanks you for your consideration pertaining to the open  ing of our new Mini Thrift shop.  It has been a real -success. Your  ikindhess was greatly appreciated. ���Mrs. A. Whiting  Editor: May I add my voice  to those supporting our School  Board in it's presentation to the  voters of Referendum 10. It has  been clearly explained that only  emergency measures are allowed at this time by the department of education.  .The board has diligently applied it's efforts to the (our)  problem, and the bare essentials  of housing in the referendum,  should make it clear to all voters that any criticism on  grounds of "frills" is not valid  I trust that a realization that  this in an emergency will cause  voters to give priority to the  matter, and that they will affirm their belief in our young  and those dedicated to serving  them. ���E.H. Burritt  Editor: I think it might be of  interest to many of your readers  to know who won the raffle of  the waterfront property on  South Pender Island, tickets for  which were sold on behalf of  the Save the Children Fund.

His ticket number was 15  015 and was sold to him by Mr.  Perry, also of Langley.  , The raffle raised over $12,000  which will be used to build a vocational school in Pusan, South  Korea", and I thank everyone  who bought a ticket. Sorry you  could not all win!  Special thanks should be extended to the generous donor of  the land Mrs. Craddock of South  Pender Island who made this  raffle possible. ���J.Hind  Smith  Editor:   The  B.C.

This letter expres-  es the sincere thanks of the Society   for  your   immeasurable  help.  For your information Christmas Seals around B.C. raised  $410 thousand this year about $6  thousand dollars below our target. The society is deeply grateful for the support given by British Columbians.  Through the Operation Doorstep surveys, research, health  education, new equipment, and  grants to health centres, Christmas Seal dollars donated work  throughout the year to fight tuberculosis, which strikes more  than 500 persons each year in  B.C., and to open new doors  into the world of respiratory  diseases such as emphysema  and chronic bronchitis which  handicap increasing numbers  each year.  Without the public spirited policy of your paper and the dedication of your staff, our work  could not continue as we must  have the support of the public  Action sought  Director   J.H. Tyner,   representing Pender Harbor area on  the Regional. District board is  sticking to his objective to get  a   medical'  clinic.   During  last  Friday's meeting of the Regional District Hospital board he en  quired whether there had been  ���any recent amendments to the  Hospital "act covering such clinics. He learned there were none.  He also found there had been  no reply to an  earlier board  letter, covering the same, to the  hospitals minister.. So he sug-  gesed another letter be sent and  if there was still no answer he  would request the specified area  technique,  as he termed it, to  see what could be done.  INFORMATION WANTED  Annual requisitions from the  Regional' District board and the  Regional Hospital District were  held up by Gibsons council at  its April 28 meeting in order  that it get more detailed information   on both.

Booth, committee chairman to the annual  meeting of St. Mary's Hospital  Society members:  The society after careful  study, authorized action to increase the capacity of the hospital. In acordance with this authority, your board immediately  proceeded to this end. The necessary referendum from the  taxpayers passed with the overwhelming majority recorded,  and plans were drawn to meet  the need evidenced by the  recorded patient load.  Plans produced by the archi  tects, which appeared entirely  acceptable to us, for the purpose, did not meet with the approval by \ the construction division of the B.C. Hospital Insurance Service, arid ; several- re-  planning occurred; in the course  drawings, alterations and re-  of which expansions arid enlarge  ments of various departments  were added to meet the requirements of the BGHIS construction  division.     :  This action resulted in an increase in the over-all total cost;  however, with the approval of  the plans, tenders for construction were called for in the summer of 1969. You will remember  the results of these tenders in  Action methods explained  During Saturday afternoon's  question period at the NDP  meeting in Roberts Creek Community hall points were raised  concerning the problem of reserve Indians.  The Indians asked for a re^  turn on taxation collected by the  provincial government. They do  not get a cent back yet people  living on reserve land are paying taxes to-the government.  On the general approach to  Indian problems and the government, Dave Barrett, leader of  the NDP opposition in the house  urged Indians to develop ah environment which would encom  pass the Indian situation without  becoming involved in paternalism.  He outlined methods of approaching government officials  and suggested that the Sechelt  band write Hon. Isabel Dawson^  for a meeting with the band,  then present her with their brief  which should be in turn handed  oyer to government officials.  If nothing was done then, it  would give the NDP a chance  to stand up in the .. legislature  and raise a commotion, which  would be a better way ytihan  the present method of waiting  for something, to be done.  Coast News, May 6, 1970.        7"  which the cost appeared some  $172,000 in excess of the amount  authorized by the referendum.  Since the society was in no position to meet the difference in  cost from its own resources,  the necessary authority to accept the tenders and. proceed  with construction was withheld  by the minister of health, and  under the direction of the minister, a redrawing and reassessment of the plans was instituted  followed by approval of new  plans by BCHIS construction  division, and a new price obtained from the contractor.  Unfortunately in March, 1970.  this new price was again found  to be in excess of expectations,  and outside an allowance limit,  with the result that under direction of the minister of health  your board has called for new  tenders for construction. This  action was instituted as of April  6th and at this date is proceeding.      .'  May I say that the plans now  accepted by government leave  desirable'.further requirements,  but your board of trustees has  done all in its.power to obtain  expanded facilities in relation  to community needs, and it is  regretted circumstances beyond s  our control have made it imperative that we settle for the  present plans.  Unfortunately at this time, we  are unable to forecast a date for  completion.

Wageniakers, appointed  Secretary of the St. Mary's Hospital Society,  .  c-o St. Mary's Hospital,  Sechelt, B.C.  Sir: As a member in good  standing of St. Mary's Hospital  Society, I wish to draw to your  attention a matter which I feel  was a dreadful error, or perhaps  even worse.  On April 27th, 1970, at 8:10 pm  I arrived at the Legion Hall in  Sechelt for the  purpose of attending the Annual Meeting of  the Society and to cast my ballot for the trustees of my choice.  To  my  utter amazement,   the  door .was locked. After knocking  several times you came to the  door and told me, in the presence  of my husband,  that we  could  attend  the  meeting,   but  that we could not vote. I asked  you why, you explained that I  was late and that the meeting  had started at 8:00 p.m. I then  told you my reason for  being  late. I had been ait. St. Mary's  Hospital to visit my mother and  father-in-law, who were both pa  tients,  and found it impossible  to get away before  8:00  p.m.  You told me that it was too bad,  but that you were only going by  the rules   of  the   Constitution.  Needless to say at this point I  was most annoyed and told you  that if I could not vote I might  as well leave. You replied "Very  well."  The next morning I phoned a  member of the society who had  attended the meeting, to ask if  she had a copy ,of the Constitution and By-laws of the Hospital  Society. I related my experience  of the previous.evening to her.  She informed me that she knew  of no such ruling, and that as a  matter of fact three other members were permitted to register  and vote after I had left. I understand Mr. Wagemakers that  you passed the register to these  members and permitted them to  vote without. a murmur of protest. After receiving this information I called you at your office to ask you if there was a  ruling  in  the constitution that  stated a  member ten minutes  late could not vote,* but members arriving still later could.  You had the unmitigated gall to  tell me that there was no such  rule but that you were following  "Roberts Rules of Order." I replied, "Very well, then tell me  where in Roberts Rules of Order  it states that this procedure was  correct?" You then told me that  you were only carrying out orders  that had been given, i.e.  The doors were to be locked at  8:00 p.m. and you were to take  your   seat.   Now   the  question  comes  to  mind,   "Who  issued  said order  and  why?"  I  find  this all very confusing and contradictory:  1. I can't vote because I'm  late and the Constitution says  No.  2. It wasn't the constitution,  Roberts Rules of Order says No.  3. It wasn't either of these,  some unknown person says No.  My confidence in you as the  administrator of the hospital that  so many people have worked  hard for. is badly shaken. Any  explanation of -your intolerable  actions  will  not  be  acceptable  to me.  Therefore Mr. Wagemakers,,  as a member of the Hospital  Society and a long time taxpayer of the district, I am requesting a public apology from you,  and trust that such interference  with a member's privileges will  never re-occur.

VOTE YES MAY 7    on School Referendum 1��  Point of law  SUNSHINE COAST DIRECTORY  (By  a Practicing Lawyer)  Q: A man is telling everyone  untrue personal things against  my daughter's good character.  Can she sue him?  A: We assume your daughter  is unmarried and that the man's  statements are to the effect that  she is unchaste. She can sue.  (See the answer to the next  question).  Q: A dissatisfied customer is  telling our other customers all  sorts of false things about-us  having misrepresented our products. I have heard . that we  can't sue for spoken statements  like this unless we can prove  an actual financial loss, but  ���that we could sue if the false  statement was in writing. We  haven't actually suffered much  loss, but would naturally like  fo sue if we can. Can we?  ����� A: Yes. Defamation may be  written (Libel) or spoken (Slander). You can always sue for  libel. For slander you must  prove a financial loss except  in the following cases: 1. A  statement that a person has  committed a criminal offence,  2. A statement that a person has  a venereal disease, 3. A statement that an unmarried woman  is unchaste or that a married  woman has committed adultery,  or, 4. A statement in the way of  a person's business, trade or  office. In these cases the rule  is the same as libel. If you can  prove a financial loss, so much  the better but it is not necessary. You, of course, fall into  the last of the four exceptions.  At the trial the judge will assess  the damages, that is the amount  you are entitled to be paid.  Q.

Can I sue for defamation  of character? How can I prove I  haven't been guilty of car theft?  A. You can sue. See the answer to the previous question.  You fall into the first exception.  You don't have to prove you  didn't steal a car. The man you  sue, in order to be successful in  the lawsuit, must prove that  you did so.  Q: A man has been writing to  different people about some  things that happened in my past  life. Unfortunately, what he says  is true but it has caused me a  lot of trouble .Can I sue him?  A. No. However, if his motive  is malicious he may be charged  With criminal libel. See the prosecutor. '" ,'  Q: A former Mend keeps  telling people about some troubles I got into years ago. He  just has it in for me. Can I sue  him? Can I have him charged  with a criminal offence?  A: Assuming he can prove the  truth of what he says���you cannot successfully sue him. There  is no such thing as criminal  slander. There is apparently no  type of legal action that would  be successful against your enemy'but you might sue for an injunction but this would be very  risky���see your lawyer. See the  answer to the last question.  Q. I have been threatened  with a lawsuit because of some  statements I made about a car  lot turning back mileage meters.  I can't prove they do this, but  anyhow I didn't say they did. I  I just said that I had been told  that they did, or I heard they  did. Can they sue me?  A: You are in trouble. Everyone who repeats a defamatory  statement can be sued. Run,  don't walk, to the nearest lawyer. He will write a letter apologising and retracting the statements.  Q:   A   former   customer   has  been running down our business.  -Me. don't^want, the publicity of  a lawsuit. Is there anything we  can do?  A: Yes ��� You can sue for  damages and an injunction. The  injunction you want is a court  order prohibiting the repetition  of the defamatory material until trial. This can be obtained  in a few days after you sue, although the trial would not normally be held for several months.  You can then simply not proceed  with the lawsuit. If the defendant breaks the injunction he  can have contempt of court proceedings commenced against  him. You are taking the risk  that the defendant will force  you on to trial ���but this is  unlikely. He will probably be  only too happy to allow the mat  ter to die. See your lawyer.
