There were about 30 signatures on the addition to the  letter, residents of Pratt road  who are supporting the objectives outlined in the letter.  -in  3  Elphinstone students plan a  walk-in from Gibsons to Sechelt  on the afternoon of Sunday May  3, to fulfill a dual purpose.  First, it is hoped that once revived, this recreational outing  might again become an annual  event, as it was during the last  few years of the community recreation commissions. In addition, the hike will be used to  raise funds for school and community projects.  Pledge forms are being made  available to students who plan  to take part. Candidates for the  walk, will approach . potential  sponsors, seeking pledges on a  per mile basis of walk completed. Tentative plans call for the  walk to begin at Elphinstone Secondary School, and to end at  the beach fronting Sechelt.  It is hoped car pools can be ar  ranged to transport participants  to the starting point and home  from Sechelt. Efforts will be  made to have all details completed by next week. Supporters of this project are invited to  contact Eugene Yablonski or  Les Peterson, Gibson.  PRACTICE FIRE  Monday   night's   fire   call   at  about 7 p.m. was the result of  a pracdce fire in- an old shed in  rear of the Legion Hall on Sun-..  shine Coast Highway.  Action is needed urgently on  improving the Sunshine Coast  highway. This was stressed at  Monday night's meeting Of Gib-  _ sons and District Chamber of  Commerce in Cedars Inn with  more than 50 persons present.  Dick; Blakeman, president, was  chairman.  Ewart McMynn stressed the  need for action because as he  said so long as ^service clubs  and the chamber of commerce  remained silent the minister of  highways will riot act. He "maintained there were roads in the.  interior much better than the  Sunshine Coast highway which  had little traffic compared to  what we have.  Mayor Wally Peterson moved  that a letter be sent to Hon.  Wesley Black, minister of highways asking that he fulfill a promise made earlier that'the highway would have top priority. A  copy will be sent to Hon. Isabel  Chairman warns  against defeat  Addressing Gibsons and District Chamiber of Commerce at  Monday night's dinner meeting  in Cedars Inn, School Board  Chairman Mrs. Sheila Kiitson  said she dreaded to think what  was likely to happen if Referendum No: 10 for emergency  school accommodation did not  pass when it goes to public vote  on May 7.  She outlined, to the board the  dire need for classrooms at Sechelt and1 Gibsons schools. Trustee Bernard Mulligan, supporting the board chairman said it  was necessary that a 60 percent vote in favor was polled.  He added that approval of Referendum 10 would by no means  solve school problems as this  referendum' was for emergency  purposes only, laid; down by  the department of education'.  Following their explanation of  the necessity of the classrooms  chamber members were unanimous .iri their approval of the  referendum.  ���r. '���?  Dawson and Sechelt, and Pender  Harbour chambers will be asked  to add their voice to the complaint.  Chairman Blakeriian. announced the chamber is still looking  for a solution to the ramp for  the launching of boats. The idea  of a lift with tackle from the end  of the municipal wharf was regarded as a possibility but not  for this year. Something which  can be done quickly was what  was required now, he said.  Gibsons Firebelles asked the  chamber to look into the Welcome Wagon idea. A motion was  passed to this effect but the  problem would have to be worked out before it. could be a realization.  Night class  art on show  /:   An interesting display of work  is on view this week through to  May 2  at  the Gallery Shop at  Sechelt.   This   is  work  done  in  the night classes at Eiphinstone  conducted  by  Mrs.   Kay  Wells  in   her  painting   for   pleasure  class  and Mrs.  Bernice Cham-  berlin's class in ceramic work.  The paintings  of Mrs. Wells'  class always attract a lot of interest  whenever   on   view   and  this  winter the class has been  larger than ever and some attractive  work has   been   done.  The subjects vary from still life  and landscapes to portraits and  animal studies and an obeserver  will note that each pupil has developed    individual    style    and  technique. Most of the work is  priced for sale.  CHILD DROWNS  Danielle Michelle Warming-  ton, tiwo and a half years old  was drowned Sunday when she  wandered from her home in Til-  licum Bay area, Porpoise Bay  Her. body was found a few feet  from shore. She was the daughter of Kent and- Bonnie Warm-  ington.  *v T*2.&**  out  Mike Ovenall, Mainland-Southwest tourist district regional coordinator, outlined via a taped  recording how he intended to lay  out the brochure covering Gibsons tourist requirements at  Monday night's chamber of  commerce meeting in. Cedars  Inn.  He showed that a number of  pictures, maps and copious information would detail the Gibsons area. Information for those  desiring to fish would receive  detailed attention and the type  of merchandise available and  where it can be obtained was  also outined.  Considerable information from  the Green Book of tourism would  be included covering accommodation and where it is. In fact,  as he said from the tape, that  every variety of information the  tourist would want to know will  be available. - The brochure is  now in the hands of printers  and as soon as it is available for  use some will be shipped to Gibsons Chamber of Commerce with  others available for use at Tourist centres. Mr. Ovenall was assisted in his explanation by  George McNicol, chairman of  the chamber's committee on  tourism.

He did so in a letter  to Hon. Ralph Loffmark, minister of health services which follows:  After having studied the draft  bylaws of the Coquitlam and  District Hospital society, I respectfully submit the following.  Having served on the Board of  St. Mary's Hospital since 1958, I  would like to point out that, as  far-as St. Mary's is concerned,  Gargrave to speak  Tony Gargrave, former legislative member of Mackenzie constituency will be one of three  speakers at the Sunshine Coast  NDP club meeting at 1 p.m. in  the Roberts Creek Community  Hall.  Tom Berger, NDP leader in  B.C. and Dave Barrett, leader of  the opposition will be speakers  also. This is quite a battery of  NDP speakers for one meeting  and the public is invited to hear  all three. Mr. Gargrave was added . after the advertisement  about the meeting on page two  was printed.  SCHINDEL REMANDED  Harry Sehindet of Gibsons,  former manager of Maple Crescent apartments, charged with  theft of more than. $50 has been  remanded a further eight days  at April 28 Mr. Schindel, unable  to raise bail is being held in custody in Oakalla jail.  if it had not been for the Ladies'  Auxiliaries and community-mind  ed members of the board who  give of their time without remuneration, our hospital would  not be as well equipped as it is.  In my opinion (which I am  entitled to), patient care comes  first and the people of this area  have shown that is what they  want by their continued support.  After all, it is their hospital,  paid for by their taxes.  As   I   cannot   go   along  with  what appears to be to be a dictatorial approach to hospitalization in B.C., I have no choice  but to tender my resignation as  government    representative    on  the St. Mary's Hospital board to  take effect April 21, 1970.  H. P. Hubbs  The draft bylaw of the Coquitlam society is a copyvof an original which  Mr.  Loffmark ex-  ; pects all other hospital societies  to  adopt.   It has  aroused feelings of opposition in hospital society circles in the province.  Oops! Sorry!  While trying to be of assistance  to the public as well as the  school board, a confusion of  meeting dates arose in last  week's paper. It was reported  that the school board will now  hold two meetings a month and  the paper said on the first and  third Thursday of each month.  This is incorrect. It should have  read on the second and forth  Thursday of each month. 2     Coast News, April 22, 1970.  er Comment ByPaulSt.PierreM.P.  Serving the Mt.

Pratt road needs water  Water for Pratt Road residents has become a project of major  proportions now they have the Regional District board to look to  for any action. .  Now they are on their own antiquated small pipe line servicing an increasing numlber of users resulting in an insufficient supply. Before the Regional board took over they were paying  for water from Gibsons to keep their taps running. When the Regional district was formed Pratt road became regional territory  and responsibility. ." ,  Mayor Wally Peterson of Gibsons presented the Regional board  with a policy statement last December and since then the matter  has remained open with no reply from the Regional District board.  The 'board's financial position as the result of work already done  is one which will have to be examined before any conclusion albout  Pratt Road can be reached. In the meantime some Pratt road residents will have to put up with the drip, drip, drip of an inadequate  supply.  The Gibsons policy revealing what Gibsons anticipated if an  arrangement could be made for the use by the Regional District  of Gibsons water reads as follows:  The Regional District will construct a six inch water main to  join with the exiting Village of Gibsons water system along the  Gower Point road entrance and install a meter which will register  the amount of water entering or leaving the village.  The Regional District will renew the Pratt road line and on  completion will take over the users on the existing Henry Road,  hfefaway, Veterans road and Pratt road, all outside the village  boundaries.  ' The Regional District will maintain all of the foregoing mains  with the exception of the existing main on Henry Road arid EEgh-  ;;way 101 which will be maintained iby the village. (This is the main  /supply Mne of the village system from its reservoir.)  There are about 40 usersofwater on the Pratt road line, too  -many considering the smaUness of the pipe line and its age. At  the Gower Point end of Pratt Road there is another problem risking which affects the public in the region of Rosamund road, just  fof^the present pipe :Une carrying Gibsons water. That concerns1 a  local supply from a small private concern which has maintained a  supply of water from a local source. Those now using it have been  informed-"Unit unless money is put up to maintain the system it  wMjbe forced.to cease operating next August.  T^bse hate specialists  Bertrand Russell once remarked that some people cannot be-  happy unless they hate some other person, nation or creed. Perhaps  Paul St. Pierre, member of parliament for this constituency had  this in mind during the deibate on the amendment to the Criminal  Code covering hate literature.  The amendment provides that anyone who advocates genocide  is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for  five years; also deals with a breach of the peace resulting from  someone inciting hatred against a minority group in a public place,  and deals with the promotion of hatred $i other than private conversations.  Mr. St. Pierre took the attitude that tacking on such an amendment would do more harm than good. Perhaps the Ibest paragraph  in his speech follows:  "It is my conviction that at ibest this law will' not accomplish  anything. It will merely be a piece of counter-ipropaganda put on  the statute books. I am afraid that the results may be worse. I am  afraid this legislation, if passed, will be welcomed by. those sordid  people who deal in hate literature. I think it will be a crown of  thorns for them to pull down on their little pointed heads. I fear  that it will cause other hate literature, more devious and vicious,  to be published.  "I think that the residents of society's lunatic fringe are going  to get an importance they do not deserve and in the process of circumventing this law, which they can surely do, they will produce  a stronger poison than they are now producing."  Mr. St. Pierre struck a right chord when he urged members of  parliament not to increase chances of using the law to advance  the objectives of hate specialists.  VILLAGE OF GIBSONS  FIRE PERMIT SEASON  May1 to October 31,1970  Effective May 1st, burning permits are required for  open fires under the Forest Act. Residents within the Village of Gibsons may apply for ja permit at the Municipal  Office during regular office hours 10 a.m. to 12 noon and  1 to 4:30 p.m. Permits must be obtained BEFORE setting  an open fire.  No permit is necessary when burning in1 a container  covered with a screen. Permits may be cancelled at any  time.  April 17, 1970  Gibsons, B.C.  David Johnston,  Municipal Clerk.  THIRD ARTICLE  It is suggested that the White  Paper is- a means of increasing  government revenue. In fact,  the White Paper bears no direct  relation to total taxation.. The  White Paper is concerned with  the distribution of the taxation  burden. Not with the total load.  You may hear it said that the  White Paper is. a form of conspiracy by Eastern Canada to  throttle Western Canada. It hits  the mining companies. It hits  the small businesses. It's Bay  Street against the West. ;  Now I happen to be one of a  good number of Western MPs  who do not believe that the East  appreciates the West, or understands it sufficiently. But if I'm  going to criticize the East, I  t want to criticize it on strong  grounds. The White Paper  doesn't provide strong grounds.  Mining? Mining, gentlemen,  whatever we may think of our  big developmets in the British  Columbia mountains and in the  Arctic, mining is still far bigger in Northern Ontario and  Northern Quebec.  The figures are for metal mining taxation, British Columbia-  . 23 millions, Ontario���14.5 millions Quebec 32.5 millions. For  other non-fuel mining, B.C. 3.8,  Ontario 12.8, Quebec 23.3. All  mining, oil included, B.C.���-27,  Ontario���27.5,  Quebec���55.7.  How about small business?  Well there's some doubt as to  what constitutes small in a business, but if we take the figure  of earnings of $35,000 and less,  the statistics show that the number of such small business in  Ontario and Quebec far exceeds  British Columbia and Alberta.  The figures are: Quebec 191,916;  Ontario 335,183; Alberta 82,329;  British Columbia 117,664.  The Ontario government condemned the White Paper proposals. In entirety, I suppose; And  it Drought forward figures to  support its case. The day after  those figures appeared, Mr. Benson was questioned about it in "���  the House of Commons. He said  that he hadn't had time to study  the whole paper, but that in the  first couple of pages he had encountered an error of arithmetic amounting to 200 million dollars. And he invited Ontario to  bring their computations before  him and see how the computers  are operating. And he's done it  ever since that day. Challenged  Ontario to check its arithmetic.  But I tell you that the loudest  critics are not sticking to the  facts, they are. substituting emotion for fact, they are not being  acurate and they are losing their  credibility. And credibility, gentlemen, is like honor in a man. or  chastity in a woman. Once it's  lost, it's very hard to regain.  The White Paper should be criticized well. It should not be cri  ticized badly, carelessly or emotionally.  What is of genuine concern to  a great number of Canadians is  the question of how much taxation can be applied before individual initiative is destroyed.  This is the question.  Many people write me who  claim to know where that level  is. They say that it's at the level  suggested in the White Paper.  But I suggest to you that nobody  knows.   Nobody knows.  The late Northcotte Parkinson  of     Parkinson's     Law     fame  claimed  that  men  would  part  with  only  10 percent   of  their  earnings without protest, and he  said they    didn't    reaily   care  if the ten percent went to a government or to a bunch of boys  in sheepskin coats who held up  the wagon trains in the mountain pass. However, Mr. Parkinson's ten percent has long since  been pased by almost, all  the  developed nations of the world.  At present,     Canadians    are  channelling about 36  percet.of  their earnings through the three  levels of   government,   federal,  provincial and municipal. Incidentally, for those of you who  like  figures, you  should  study  taxation figures before criticising the federal government too  heavily. The federal government  share  of the national  taxation  pie has been steadily dropping.  You might not   hear this from  people who don't want to tell  you, but I suggest you search it  out for yourselves. ..  ��� .  In 1952, the federal government took 73% of all Canada's  taxes. The provinces 15%, Municipalities 12%. By 1964, the federal share was:down to 57%,  the provinces share 28%, and  municipalities 13%. The projection for 1971: federal 52%, provinces 35%, Municipalities 13%.  However, this begs the question. The main question remains.  How much taxation will the people bear before they come to  the conclusion that it just isn't  worthwhile working any more.  This is a serious question and it  ^deserves serious debate.  "As I say, I don't claim to  know. But I do claim the right  to say this. If you want taxation  reduced, begin by stating what  government services you want  to do without. Or how Canada is  going to become more productive. Because those are the only  methods for .reduction. Cuts in  services or increases in production.  However, this general level of  taxation is not affected by the  White Paper, no matter what  the high price advertisements  may tell you. The general level  of taxation is a larger and a  continuing question. Because tax  ation is a cumulative poison, we  may not know that we've taken  too much until we're sick.  What   about   specifics   in the  White Paper.  Nothing stands out so clearly  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  FIVE YEARS AGO  Work will start soon on clearing part of Brothers Memorial  park for a base ball diamond  and soccer field.  Nicol Warn, local youth and  UBC student was awarded $2,-  500 National Research council  bursary for post-graduate studies in science.  John Harvey was elected president of St. Mary's Hospital society at its annual meeting succeeding Harvey Hubbs who retires after six years as president. .  10 YEARS   AGO  Six Sechelt families were bereft of their fathers when six  men drowned in a boating accident in Porpoise  Bay area.  A bad storm hit power lines  all1 the way from Jervis Inlet  to Port Mellon and also causing  many trees to be blown down.  Porpoise Bay residents asked  the school board to re-establish  the school bus line they once  had. The board said >it could  not do so.  An octopus with a two foot  spread was found washed up on  the Roberts Creek shoreline.  15   YEARS  AGO  Gibsons and Port Mellon Red  Cross society exceeded last  year's March drive by turning  in $888.  Sechelt Forest Loggers at a  meeting in Sechelt decided to  place a brief before the Sloan  commission maintaining they  are not getting a fair deal. .

At a public meeting Mr.  Drage got considerable heckling.  Children were bemoaning the  fact that C.P. Smith cut down  the old cherry tree at the Shell  garage.  A VON was organized in Headlands area of Gibsons with Mrs.  E.S.B. Clarke as president.  as a danger to social policy than  the suggestion of increasing taxes' on small businesses. Some  people say the small business  is doomed anyway, that the  whole current of our times is  toward ever larger and larger  corpoations.  Well, if that is so, it is a very  sad thing and it's certainly no  business of government to hurry  it along. Because of course it's  a fiction, gentlemen, that big  corporations are more efficient  corporations. I suggest as a  rule they are less efficient. Effi-  ency is not a function of bigness  whether it's in big government  or big business.  But there is no doubt that the  big corporations are more power  ful, as distinct from more effi-  ent. All the advantages except  that of efficiency lie with the big  corporations. Easier access to  credit, more capital with which  to expand, bigger reserves to  meet temporary setbacks, more  access to markets..I needn't go  on.

Are .those innocent appearing  little cards which promoters  claim will uncompliicate our lives  a blessing or a curse? Arej  they ari aid to keeping track of  our finances, or an open invitation to disaster?  From a rather slow start less  than 10 years ago, these plastic  cards are today bulging wallets  across :th�� entire continent. Consumers' Association of Canada  became concerned when hundreds of letters flooded in to  protest the receipt of unsolicited credit cards through the mail  Their efforts to control this by  means or.through . post office  regulations were    unsuccessful.

Primarily, the curtain is up on the  soft look ��� a melodrama of natural curves. The knit thing in  cotton has carried the theme  to it's ultimate.  100% cotton has improvised  with star genius in the realm  of the knit, to provide many designers with their chief and soul  mspiratiori, recapturing the feminine look of the '30's. The  unfettered breast, smooth natural tines and,tubular look of today, is more than reminiscent of  the '30's. It's almost a matter  of the pupil exceeding the master ��� as the virtuosity of cotton  knits finds itself expressing a  look of the past in the vibrant  colors and ingenuous textures  of the 70's.  100 percent cotton knits up a  lightweight sensual softness  that's perfectly packable and  ideal for the mobility of the era  with a  comfort and freshness  that lends ease and freedom of  movement to  the   travel togs.  Cotton continues the knitted  tradition of limitless patterns  and, textures ��� evidenced in  cotton crochet. Designers are  using it repeatedly and developing a repertoire that extends  from the most delicate evening  ensembles to the most rugged  beachcomber rompers. The success of each design owes much  to the quality and mood imparted by the fabric itself.  Cotton's creative versatility  knits up a variety of body dingers ��� achieves the wet look,  the dry look, the warm and  the breezy, through various  weaves. Always remaining supple and soft. Cotton knit lends  hug, stretch and Vibrant color  that ideally dramatizes the vo-  guish look of the popular jumpsuit ��� with a cool freshness and  residence that steals the show.  Cotton, as a fabric of many  personalities, appeals to and inspires a multitude of designers  who recognize the cotton knit  as the designers choice, a thing  for all seasons.

A useful follow-up is a letter to  the issuer, stating your objection to this means of advertising  and enclosing the mutilated  card.  But if you feel you need such  cards, to help > you live with  them and stay solvent Consumers' Consumers' Association of  Canada suggests the following  precautions:  Guard your credit cards well;  never leave them in glove compartments or other spots from  which they may be easily stolen.  Check frequently to make  sure they have not been lost if  you make limited use of your  credit cards and if you find  they've disappeared, be sure to  notify the issuer at once��� by  registered mail. Most companies wall not charge for purchases  made on an unsolicited card if  you have never used it, but once  you have used or signed the  card, you are completely responsible for all purchases  made with it, unless the issuing  company is notified. Keep a record of your card numbers and  the address to notify.  If you make many purchases  at a store which promotes the  use of credit cards you may  ������' wish to obtain- and use one. You  are paying for credit on each  purchase and by using a card  will gain a month's interest on  the money you have on deposit  in the bank. Use it for large purchases. You gain not only a  month's use of your money, but  the opportunity to inspect the  purchase arid have any defects  remedied before you are required to make payment. The  wise use of a credit card will  also help you establish a good  credit rating.  Never impulse-buy just because it is so easy to charge  ^ a purchase. Remember the bill  will always arrive with the first  of the month. Don't let your  credit cards become the debt  of you.  To prevent unpleasant surprises at the end of the month, try  keeping a list of the amounts  charged. This way you can be  more certain that you have not  charged more than you can pay  when the bills come in. Check  your bills when they are received to make sure they are  accurate listings, of purchas  es. Even computers make mistakes!  If you have questions regarding  your account, or if charges are  recorded after a card has been  stolen, get in touch with the issuing company immediately to  state your case and have an investigation made. One of the  greatest dangers of credit cards  is that the holder must assume  legal reponsibiliy for all debts  incurred in their use, whether or  not authorized. To avoid mistakes in billing, notify all companies of your change of ad-  dess immediately when you  move.  Whether credit cards are good  or bad depends on the uses' to  which you���the consumer put  them. Consumers' Association of  Canada? suggests that you remember that careless- use of  credit cards can lead to serious personal debt. It may be a  factor in continuing inflation  and can be a severe shock at  the end of the month. But, carefully employed to make the best  use of your money, they can be  a useful family tool.  So it's up to you���don't let  credit cards become the debt  of you!

Scout annual  report issued  The annual report of the regional president and regional  commissioner of the Vancouver  Coast Region of Boy Scouts of  Canada reports that in May of  last year Mt. Elphinstone and  Sechelt Peninsula district amalgamated into one district known  as the Sunshine Coast district.  It also noted that more than  200 people chiefly from Vancouver gathered at Camp Byng Sunday June 1 for the dedication  service of the Retallack Memorial chapel in memory of Rex  and Myf Retallack who gave  dedicated service to Scouting.  During the summer a Sea Venturer regatta was held at Camp  Byng.  Donald R. Bruce is commissioner and Fred W. Fearman  president of the Vancouver  Coast Region in Scouting.  .

The complete  Bible is now printed by the society in 244 languages; .the New  Testament, in 568. Thus 90 percent of the people in the world  can now read the complete Bible in their own language; and  96 percent of the population  can read one or more complete  books of the Bible in their own  tongue. The latter is made possible by the Society's painstaking  and uneorrupted translation  work in 1,413 different languages. To carry out this extensive  translation work, the Society requires nearly one million dollars  annually.  The struggle to get sufficient  health inspectors for the growing Sunshine Coast area has  reached the point where consideration of school boards,-- municipal councils and the Regional  district directors to band together to get action from government officials to increase. the  number of inspectors. Hugh  Bell as. the lone inspector for  the Sunshine Coast.  Gibsons council at its last  meeting decided to write . a  strong letter to Hon. Ralph Loff-  mark, provincial minister of  health to get some help for this  area by increasing the inspector staff.  With a growing population it  was mentioned at the recent  Gibsons council meeting that  one could get an inspection  of a health problem by appointment only.. This means that  projects are held up because  there is insufficient time for the  inspector to handle the quanity  of work he faces.  The recent Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit annual report re  veals the fact that half the time  of inspectors is now absorbed  in examination of subdivisions.  This part of his work is also increasing.  Here are excerpts from the  health report substantiating the  increased volume of work:  Again another substantial increase in private sewage disposal systems occurred this year  In 1969 a total of 478. private  sewage disposal systems were  inspected, a 36 percent increase  over the 374 systems inspected  in 1968.  In June this health unit terminated its control over Bowen  Island, which is now covered by  the North Shore Health Unit.  In the exchange Coast-Garibaldi  obtained the responsibility of  overseeing Lions Bay and south  to the West Vancouver border.  The shortage of a health inspector has been felt throughout the unit. In 1965, two health  inspectors processed 34 subdivisions and carried out 62 site  inspections. In 1969, two Health  Inspectors processed 283 subdivisions and 822 site inspections.  Subdivisions now consume 50-  to 55 percent Of the health inspector's time. Obviously, valuable programs that are ordinarily carried out by an Inspector will have to be reduced or  curtailed. If Whistler Mountain  should be chosen as the Olympic ski site for 1976, this work  will be markedly increased, and  it would be very difficult to  maintain standards with only  two  health inspectors.  19 in Fly-up  In a ceremony witnessed by  a large crowd of parents and  friends, 19 Brownies flew up to  Guides from, three Gibsons  ���Brownie packs. Six of the girls,  who had been doing extra work  for the, past six weeks, and  passed- the Guide Tenderfoot  tests, will form the nucleus of  a new Guide company.  Brownies flying up were from  the First Pack, Cathy Forsyth,  Stephanie Gibson, and Shar-  lene White; Second Pack, Linda  Biggaman>,.Lorna Boyd, Rhonda  Cooper, Carol Daugherty, Linda  Lamg, Rebecca McKinnon, and  Michele Phillips; Third Pack,  Kelly Cryderman, Geradine  Fyles, Yvonne Inglis, Joanne  Laird, Wani Rahniger, Heather  Reid, Mava Schneider, Janette  Swanson and Cathy White.  The six girls who have already passed their Guide tenderfoot test, and are the first girls  enrolled in the-third Gibsons  Guide Company are Cathy White  Carol Daugherty, Wani Rarmi-  ger, Linda Brggamen, Joanne  Laird and Sharlene White.  As has been the trend since  1967, an adverse amount of the  public health inspector's time  has been devoted to subdivisions  and site inspections.  In 1968, 785 site inspections  were 'made, 244 of these pertaining to subdivisions. During 1969,  822 were made with 283 inspections   pertaining to subdivisions  There is a very definite need  for more planning and better  land use in- all areas. As development proceeds it becomes apparent that the difficult terrain  in many areas makes septic  tank unsuitable. It is to be  hoped that we can proceed with  regional planning with the de-  velopmet of regional sewage  and water systems.  Gibsons was successful in obtaining a permit from the Pollution Control branch, -for their  proposed sewerage system. The  outfall for the Gibsons proposal  is   approximately   700   feet   off  Gospel    Rock in    the Strait of  Georgia.  In the late spring of 1969,  beach samples were taken on  Pebbles and Atlee Beaches,  which are the closest swimming  areas,to the Gibsons sewer outfall. The bacteriological results  of these samples were satisfactory. These results will enable  us to determine if the proposed  sewer discharge, when constructed, will have any adverse effects on these beaches. This  sampling will continue.  Due to unsuitable soil conditions-in many parts of the village, it is felt that as far as the  health unit ds concerned, \these  sewers are mandatory for the  health and well being of the residents of Gibsons.  Powell River made application to the Pollution Control  Branch to commence construction of a Sewage Treatment  Plant in 1970.  60 WI delegates meet  Over 60 members of the North  Fraser Valley District Women's  Institutes, representing nine Institutes, met in the Elks Hall in  Port Coquitlam April 17 for the  40th annual district conference.  Howe Sound W.I. is one of the  nine Institutes, and Mrs. Gertrude Corlett, a former Howe  Sound member, was present.  The vice-president of the provincial Women's Institute, Mrs.  Ivy Ford Tappen was guest  speaker. She urged the members to plan workshops on a district level, to encourage handcrafts, learn meeting procedures, discuss problems, and  plan interesting programs and  projects. Mrs. Miriam Kendricks  of the Point Grey W.I., and a  member of the provincial board,  also spoke, mentioning the recent Board meeting and some  of the decisions made there.  Delegates from eight of the  nine Institutes presented reports  of branch activities, as usual  proving that the W.I. takes an  active part in many forms of  community activities, sponsoring 4>H clubs and sports teams,  affiliating with CAC, Council of  Women, Red Cross, etc., working on behalf of Children's Hos  pital and the Solarium, and entering the PNE and local fairs.  A three-part resolution, urging  governments of all levels to enact and enforce sensible legislation for pollution control programs and research, putting the  W.I. on record as supporting  that legislation and urging individual members to do their  share in pollution control was  passed unanimously.  Also passed was a resolution  asking that income tax exemption be increased in accordance  with cost of living. A resolution  asking that the authorities abolish Hallowe'en because of the  commercialism, vandalism and  sadism now connected with it,  was carried by a narrow margin.  Mrs. Annie Barnes, Nicomen  Island, was elected to a second  term as president with Mrs. Ina  Boe, Point Prey, vice-president;  Mrs. Edith Chambers, Port  Coquitlam; secretary treasurer;  Mrs Grace Nicholls, Haney and  Mrs. 'Ethel Wilson, Agassiz, as  directors.  Members were entertained by  a comicS reading by Mrs. Ada  Shaw "and a humorous impression by Mrs. Constance Brown.  Red Cross Youth meet  At a meeting of ten provincial directors of Red Cross  Youth in Regina recently, attended by Steven Lee, Elphinstone school Red Cross Youth  as the delegate representing  British Columbia and Yukon,  it was decided that a new national program be developed.  During the session considerable thought was put into the  role of Red Cross Youth in today's problems and it was hoped  that the opinions of youth, teachers, staff and professionals in  the fields of social sciences and  administration would be incorporated in the revised national  national program.  A surprising turn of events  was revealed in the resignation  of Mrs. Isla Service, director of  the B.C. Yukon Red Cross Youth  She has been a guiding light  for Red Cross Youth both pro-  vincially and nationally for the  last eight   years. Her   efforts  REFUELING PROBLEM  Tyee Airways has asked Sechelt council to approve his application to place the department of transport airplane float  at a position where pilots could  have easy access to Tyee's  pumps for refueling. Council  agreed. The matter will be  brought to the attention of the  department.  will be missed throughout B.C.  and the Yukon.  Steven reported he gained  many, points from the deliberations including an awareness of  a strong challenge facing the  youth of this country, a challenge to unite to tackle the problems surrounding youth of today in a peaceful and constructive way.  One item which created interest was the popular feeling that  local projects should play an important part in the activities  of Red Cross Youth in the future.  Steven also attended the annual meeting of the Red Cross society in Hotel Vancouver, April  4 and 5 when a cheque for $6,-  000 was presented to president  J.C. Wilson of the B.C. Yukon  Red Cross by Dr. John Conway,  chairman of the Miles for Millions hikes.  General Arthur Wrinch, national commissioner of the Canadian Red Cross spoke on the  Nigerian Biafra war and mentioned that there was considerable gross exaggeration in the  press on it. As this was a civil  war Geneva Conventions were  difficult to apply. However by  the time he was able to leave  the war area the situation improved to the point where there  was a great drop in disease and  deaths, because food supplies  were approaching immediate  sufficiency.  Coast News, April: 22, 1970.      5  Reserve parents  want children  at public school  School Principal W.L. Reid's  Minute Talk to the Congregation of Gibsons United Church  Sunday was devoted to his association with Indian children in  Sechelt Elementary school.  He started in saying that three  years ago a significant increase  of children living oh the Reserve  enrolled at Sechelt Elementary.  It was clearly shown this trend  was an indication Reserve parents desired to have their children enter the elementary  school. Shortly afterwards a  plebiscite was held among parents of the Reserve, and the  result was highly encouraging.  The initial movement towards  integration came from the parents  themselves.  Many rather positive steps  have been made foremost of  which was the inception of an  educational committee. This  committee is composed of five  members of the Sechelt Reserve.  Its main function is to seek  means and ways of, cementing  the bond between (x>mmjunity  and the school. The committee  also has been greatly helpful  in suggesting various approaches in efforts to avoid pitfalls  before they occur. Sechelt Eie-  menary School has received the  services of four teacher aides  work within the school. These  young people have been of tremendous help to the school in  many vital- areas, foremost of  which has been their assistance  in strengthening the ties of the  school and parent.  We have endeavored, he said  to be continually conscious in  our curriculum, of the contributions' made towards our: cultures  by the Indian people. We have  tried to incoporate this approach  particularly in areas of social  studies, art, and music. It is of  interest also to note that the  department of education in Victoria through their curriculum  revision committee is, attempting to ensure that the true historical background of Indian  culture and its place is respected and incorporated within the  school program.  The B.C. Teachers' Federation is also keenly interested hi  Sechelt Elementary School as  part of its pilot project seeking  means of establishing the best  educational setting for the integrated school. The Federation  has been particularly helpful  in areas, such as providing in-  service training for staff nem-  bers,; as well as sending specialists to the school for consul-  tive purposes. The pilot project  has been in fact a combined operation, receiving the co-operation also of our local school  board, as well as the department  of education, the Sechelt Band  Council, and members of the  staff of the various schools.  Progress has been made, but  the task in a sense is really just  initially under way. In -.��rder  for its ultimate success there  is no doubt that the combined  co-operative efforts between the  school and community is essential, Mr. Reid said.  TALKS ON REFERENDUM  School Trustee J. D. Ganshorn  appeared before Sechelt's council at its meeting last week and  outlined the details of Referendum No. 10 for emergency  school purposes. He stressed the  emergent need for the additional classrooms at Sechelt and  Gibsons and hoped that Sechelt  would generally support the referendum on May 7.  DINE  The Drifters return Saturday  April 25  PENINSULA DRIVE-IN DINING ROOM 553--  DANCE PAUL  ST.PIER-RE, MP  The United States government  has been as intransigeantly negative in its reaction to our new  Arctic bills as many had expected. This column is written- on  the day our Washington Ambassador was served with a note  from the U.S. State Department,  At time of writing, its contents  are not know to me.  I have no doubt that the state  department has spoken harshly  about our plan to establish Arctic pollution control zones. It  may also complain about our  current refusal to submit this  legislation to the judgement of  the International Court of Justice at the Hague.  For these reasons, this column will deal with some aspects of international law which  apply to the matter of this country's protection of its Arctic.  Therefore I bring forward the  following as a few of the points  which, in my opinion, fully justify the Canadian government's  decision to establish Arctic pollution control zones, extend our  territorial waters to the full 12  mile limit and reserve our position in relation to international  court action.  Primarily, our case is that  international law has not developed to the point where the  interests of coastal states are  being sufficiently protected  against pollution by ships of the  high seas nations.  God knows we tried to get  such international agreement.  We tried at two international  law of the seas conferences in  1958 and 1960 and again last Nov  ember, at the International Maritime Consultative Organization,  meeting in Brussels. We failed,  partly because such seafaring  nations as the U.S. were reluctant to agree to the extension of  coastal states' rights to control  shipping near their shores.  Prime Minister Trudeau's  statement in commons was to  the effect that until international  agreement is reached, Canada  will hot submit to such law being constructed by the Hague  Court and that we will act on  what he called the fundamental  principle of self-defence,  internationally minded Cana-  cm in ii smum  ANGLICAN  ,      St. Bartholomew's, Gibsons  1  8 a.m;, 2nd, 4th and 5th Sunday  Holy Communion  11 a.m., Sunday School  11:15 a.m., 1st and 3rd Sundays  Holy Communion  2nd and 5th Sunday, Mattins  4th Sunday, Family Service  St. Aidan's, Roberts Creek  10 aan., 2nd Sunday  Holy Communion  4th Sunday, Family Service  2:30 p.m., 1st, 3rd & 5th Sunday  Evensong  Joint Service 1st Sunday  (Alternating)  " ~      UNITED        ....-  Gibsons United Church  11:15 a.m., Divine Service  .  9:30 a.m., Wilson Creek  2:15 p.m., Roberts Creek  PORT MELLON  1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays  9:15 a.m, Rev.

Of the 126 member'  nations of the United Nations,  81 have not accepted compulsory jurisdiction of the Hague  Court. Of the 45 who have, almost all have made some reservation.  Among those making such a  reservation! is the United States  itself, which, in its Connolly  amendment, reserves the right  to decide for itself whether questions before the international  court are internal or international in nature.  It is a more sweeping reservation than any which Canada  now proposes.  . Both Canada and the United  States have, for many years,  claimed the right to check incoming aircraft at distances up  to 200 miles off our coastlines.  Some may argue .that we have  been in continuous violation of  international law by doing so.  Others, may say that we were  acting dn justifiable extention  of our states' powers of self defence. Washington, presumably,  would so argue.  Can Washington argue otherwise when Canada is seeking  to protect its unique Arctic environment against a disastrous  pollution danger?  The principle of a state acting unilaterally in advance of  international law is not unknown  either in Ottawa or in Washington. As early as 1909, Canada  extended her customs department's jurisdiction 12 miles off .  our coastline. Our proposed extension   of   12 mile   territorial  limits for all purposes  is not  basically different.  In 1964 we established exclusive zones of 12 miles off our  coasts. The United States protested. Within two years, the  United States had adopted the  same policy in her own waters1.  Whatever the legal complications- of the Trudeau government's action���even though they  may be challenged and we may  lose���any nation has a fundamental and predominant right  and duty to act to protect itself.  International' opinion is less  likely to condemn this nation  than to follow its lead. For such  reasons, the Canadian government action has already won  support from an Alaska senator  and, our statement of reservation to the United Nations notwithstanding, an official of the  United Nations said in a recent  radio broadcast that at doesn't  matter about procedures, what  Canada is doing is "good for  humanity."  I firmly believe that, as Canadians, we should be confident  that we are right in the new  Arctic legislation. Even though  bur old friendly neighbor to the  South may shout out of the  mouth of its state Department.  Even though political speeches  may obscure the central issue.  Even though we are attempting  to make international law when  the international community itself has failed to do so.  I would go farther. We are  right, even if we lose. Which is  another way of saying that eventually we will win.'  '  ^J^BRITISH COLUMBIA  ^S^FESTIVAL OF SPORTS  He- name is Knox Mountain  and she is a stubborn old lady.  She let them build a snakelike,  2.2 mile auto racing course on  her, but dictated that it not be  .designed for racing.   >   ?  Natural drainage was designed into the road so that all  corners (18 in all) slope off the  wrong way to let water run off  without the use of elaborate  ditches. Maximum speed on the  road for normal traffic is 20  miles; per hour. The off-slope  combined with a consistent  grade and smooth blacktop finish makes cars slide off if they  hit: one <tf the corners too fast.

An amendment  by Eldon, Wooliams (Conservative-Calgary North) was also defeated last week. liberal John  Roberts (York Simcoe) voted  for the opposition amendment.  St. Pierre abstained, declaring  he considered the bill unsatisfactory in its entirety. Conservative votes were split. '���:'.'  '<' In a speech to commons Thurs  day, St. Pierre said he was convinced that the legislation would  not decrease the level of hate  literature or the 'level of: racial  hatred in Canada. He feared  that the result could; be worse,  with the lunatic fringe of; hate  peddlers becoming more skil'l-  ful and more effective in publish  ing hate literature. He was not  convinced that criminal 'law can  be effectively used to educate,  people.  St.  Pierre was criticized by  James Jerome (L. Sudbury), for  taking a different attitude on  the hate literature bill than he  took, on Arctic sovereignty. On  sovereignty, said Jerome, St.  Pierre took the attitude that we  should not be too much concerned about the legal technicalities involved. "He is now saying that he agrees with the  spirit of the hate legislation hut  because there are so many technical problems  we should not  go into them."  . ������'���.���'" ��� .

(By a Practicing Lawyer)  Is it necessary by law to strictly abide by every term of a  contract? What about the man  who enters into a contract containing a very harsh term?  mhere are a number of answers to these questions depending on the circumstances of the  case. No one can enforce a contract, a requirement of which  is contrary to law. In many cases equity will relieve a contracting party from harsh requirements that would be enforceable under ordinary law.  Equity is a branch of our law  set up especially for this purpose.  Q. I sold my house by agreement for sale for $3,000 down  and $85 per month. The buyer  has missed a payment and the  agreement for sale says I can  evict him and take possession.  He won't get out. How do I get  him off the property and get  title to my property?  A. You can't evict him or take  possession if he won't give it  to you, no matter what the  agreement for sale says. Equity  relieves the buyer of the strict  payment provisions of theagree-  ; ment for sale. You must sue in  a foreclosure action and apply  to the court to Set a redemption  period. For agreements for sale  this is usually three months, After this you can apply tor  a final foreclosure order���If  this is usually three months. If  ithe buyer, has not paid the  amount owing in the three  : months' period. This second order gives you title to the land  but if the buyer will hot vacate  you still cannot take the law into your hands, but must apply  to the court for the third order.  It will send out the sheriff and,  'If necessary, he can use force  to evict..  : Q. I made a building contract  *o build a man's garage and we  had a clause in it that he agreed  not to hold back any payments  Jtor possible lien claims by work  men, etc. Now I have finished  the work and there are no wages or anything owed tp anyone  but he will only pay me 85 per  cent of the contract price. He  owes another $400. Should I sue  hi small claims court or what?  A. You can do nothing. The  payment clause an your contract  16 contrary to the provisions of  the mechanics Men act and no  one can contract out of it. It  is meaningless. You must wait  41 days and, if you are not then  paid, and if no one liens the land  in this period, then you can sue.  Q. Our company is seller of a  truck under a conditional sales  agreement which says that if.  a payment is missed we can use  force to seized and enter on the  buyer's land, etc. This we attempted to do but the buyer  shoved our salesman off his  premises. Should we go back  and use the necessary force?  Can the buyer be charged with  assault?  A. If anyone is going to be  charged with assault it will be  your representatives. You can't  use force and any term in a contract that says you can, is mean-  (Copyxight)  ingless. " The buyer ���. may use  force to resist your seizure, and  if you oppose this, with more  force, your representative will  be the person breaking the law.  You have to sue and obtain a  court order and the court's representative can use force. A  more practical remedy for you  is to hire a private bailiff. They  have no more rights than anyone  else, but know all the tricks  on how to seize goods without  actually breaking any laws.  Q. I sold my business with a  clause in the sales contract forbidding competition by me anywhere in the province for four  years. Things haven't worked  out at all well for me and I want  to start up business again. Is  there any way I can do so��� or  can the buyers stop me?  A. We don't have the full details of your type of business  but if the clause forbidding  competition is unreasonably  broad and affords more protection than the buyer's needs, the  courts will strike it out. See  your lawyer about a' possible  lawsuit ��� or perhaps even the  threat of legal action will be  sufficient to pressure the buyer  into agreeing to a narrower  clause.  Q. My lease says I can use  force to evict the tenant if he  doesra' pay his rent. Am I safe  in doing this?  A. No. You can't use any  force. If the tenant won't 'leave  after proper notice to quit, etc.,  you have to sue in an eviction  action. If necessary, the court  will send but the sheriff and he  can use force to force the tenants out.

Government  Employees' Union voted in three  areas on acceptance or rejection of the 1970 wage increase  proposed, for them by the provincial government.  Branch     president       Robert  Moore said the group had held  [    wage ratification   meetings   at  Sechelt, April 15 Powell River,  April 17 and Vananda, April 20.  Moore said the other 54 branches in the 14,000 member BCG  EU will also be holding wage  ratification meetings .this month.  This was the first time that  all BOGEU members have had  the chance to vote yes or no on  their annual wage increases.  "We are trying to find out  whether our membership is happy or unhappy with this year's  increase" he said.  "If the overall vote is heavily  in favor of rejecting the increase  then the union's negotiating  committee will seek to reopen  wage discussions with the civil  service commission" said Moore  However, if an overall: majority  votes for acceptance, the negotiating committee will probably make representation on behalf of a few occupational  groups which may vote against  the wage proposals". )   ���  .Moore said members of the  Powell Riverr Branch will not  be asked to consider strike ac-  ion over wages, at least at the  ratification stage.  2 new members  Two new members were welcomed to the Roberts Creek Aux  iliary to St. Mary's Hospital at  the regular monthly meeting  Monday evening.  Following the reading and discussions of reports the auxiliary's successful catering service was studied and some revision of prices made.  Announcement was made of  the annual) ��� BCHA regional*  meeting in Vancouver on April  22. The majority of members  present expressed their intention of attending. It was recalled  that last year Roberts Creek  was well represented when the  meeting was  at White Rock.  A letter was read from a satisfied catering customer j inviting the members to a tea at her  home.  Bright new smocks for the thrift  Shop staff are nearing comple-  ion. The meeting closed with  refreshments for the 24 members present.  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  Mr. and Mrs. S. Rowland  have as their guest Mrs. Rowland's mother, Mrs. S.
