 Provincial Library,  Victoria.- B* C.  The only newspaper printed in the area Port Mellon to Egmont  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 23  Number 30, July 29, 1970.  10c per copy  in  Pratt Road residents in striving to find a soIutionTto their domestic water problems . sought  the aid of the Public Utilities  Commission and in a letter asked just where the P.U,C. thought  they stood in relation to the Regional District board, Gibsons  Municipal Council and the PUG.  The reply from the PUC,inr  formed Pratt Road residents  that as the Regional District  board was the local incorporated board with senior right to  serve in this area the commission was not in\a position to order renewal of the water main  by the Gibsons council. s  Here is the letter which sought  the information from the Public  Utilities Commission:  Mr. H. W. Mellish, secretary,  TPublic Utilities Commission,  Box 1204,  Victoria, B.C. ���.;���<���  Dear Sir:  At the request of the Pratt  Road residents I would like information regarding installation  of d new pipe line on above mentioned road. Below is a detailed  description of the present drastic situation with which we are  . faced. "''"'"";��� "������ '-'/���  ^v-   ;>  The present pipeline was installed by residents of Pratt  Road 22 years ago, and was*a  privately owned line for five  years. The village of. Gibsons'  then took the line over; and have  since' that time been supplying  water to this area.  Over the .years residents on  this roo0^jo^id^3^^u)[e^r>  for water rates, and "more recently, newcomers have paid  $100 to-the village of Gibsons for  hook-up fees.'In all this time'  the village has not invested one  cent in pipe replacement of, any  kind, with the exception of the  installation of several lengths of  pipe approximately June 12, at  the north feed end of Pratt Road  The situation (due to corroded,  rusty and dirty pipes) has now  become drastic, having been  worsened by the loosened sediment.  This situation has resulted in  a number of homes haying no  water at intervals during the  day and evening. This, means  that toilets cannot be flushed,  baths cannot be taken, and other  homes on this road have been  without water at all for as long  as a week. Drinking water must  be carried in. One family in particular was unable to send their  children to school because they  could not be bathed, and their  clothes could not be washed.  Council awaits  sewage assent  Just as soon as Gibsons municipal council receives from the  Pollution board a permit for its  planned sewage system, council  will meet ^and arrange calling  tenders so work can start as  quickly as possible, Mayor Wally Peterson forecast.,,  There are three sections to  the system, one is the collecting  line along the shorefront extending from the vicinity of the old  Municipal Hall around the bay  to Georgia Heights, The second  section will be the lateral pipes  downhill to the collecting line,  starting at Sunnycrest area and  between the northern boundary  on the Granthams side to Franklin road area on the other side.  The third section will be the  secondary treatment plant which  will be tied in at Prowse road  where a pumping station will  raise the sewage uphill to the  treatment plant ih.the area  'above South Fletcher road at the  Gower Point turn by Kinsmen  Park. ':���'':"'   ���'���'  Our dilemma is as follows:  We are in, the Regional District  and have /approached the Regional boatdTwith our problem.  We were told they were. fdnan-  cially unable to helprus. The village of. Gibsons; on" the other  hand/ has told us that apart  j from the work previously r mentioned at the north end ofTPratt  Road, they are only: responsible  . for supplying water, and this, of  course, we are not getting.  We feel that since we have  paid water rates to the village,  and new homes have been granted permission by the village of  Gibsons to hook onto this linev"  (which at one time was adequate with the small number of  consumers) and have collected  monies for these recent hookups, that the village is responsible for providing us with an adequate line immediately.  There is also the matter- of fire  hazard in regard to this, as the  pressure is so bad that the fire  department would be at a loss  in coping with a bad fire on this  road.  The Regional board is willing  to lay a new pipe line and pay  the village of Gibsons for the  water, at the same per capita  rate as the Gibsons residents.  However, the village of Gibsons  insists on collecting fees at the  consumer level from the residents on the new line when it is  installed/ and this is not'acceptable to the Regional board.  : Is there any record, in your  files of the village of Gibsons be-  Jng told to renew this line approximately four years .ago, and  were funds budgeted for this  work?  Some   outside   ruling   seems  necessary here from the Public  Utilities Commission. Your immediate  reply will be appreciated. - ��� '���' X"xlj  ���-D. J. Andow, Chairman;  West Gibsons Heights Ratepayers Assn. (for Pratt Rd.  residents). f: .  The reply to Mr .Andow:"* t7  Dear Sir: - '-.-      ���-.��  This will acknowledge receipt  of your letter of July 12 wherein  you set out the waterworks problems for Pratt Road residents.^  You ask the specific question:  "Is there any record in your  files of the Village of Gibsons  being told to renew this line approximately 4 years ago, and  were funds budgeted for this  work?" I have checked the files  and there is no record of specif-.  ic instructions being given'.'to the  Village of Gibsons to renew the  Pratt Road line.  At a hearing on October 5, 1963  in the Municipal Hall at Gibsons  several of the water users";On  Pratt Road said that ihey liad  very good water pressure. Apparently things have changed  very considerably since then.^  The Village of Gibsons hasfe a  statutory obligation to maihtfin  its waterworks system. However  We would appreciate a reply    the SiirishineCoalt Regional IMs  from you stating where, you feel    *--*��--- -:--_._:-__- _t.__ ,_ ;IL  the responsibility lies in -this  ^inatter^The^ res_den_si^o%$ft_s  road "feel this situation is neither  safe nor healthy. You can well  imagine the service given to 33  . homes, with a 22 year old, 1W  supply line corroded to approximately %" inside diameter, and  to 13 homes by approximately  % mile of original %" line 22  years old (corroded to.

It appears to be a problem for  settlement between the Village  and the Regional District.  ���H. W. Mellish, secretary.  Cavalcade surprise  Members of the Kin-20 club  have unwrapped a surprise package for "their Sea Cavalcade  dance. Returning to Gibsons will  be the Subterraneau Fire, who  s have   played  successful 1 y  for previous  Kin-20 danc-  ^Ifl es, playing at  ' y^1 a four - hour  Ya teen dance  o n Friday,  August 7. As  an added attraction, the  charming con  testants in the Miss Gibsons Sea  Cavalcade contest will make a  guest appearance. Kin-20 hoped  to have two bands for their  dance, but were unable to make  suitable arrangements.'- ^  -The Sunshine Coast- Golf and  Country Club are bringing the  mountain to Mohammed for the  Cavalcade. No golfer has managed to score a hole-in-one (with  -witnesses, George);on the nine-  hole course since its opening last  spring. y  ' Determined to find someone  capable of performing this feat,  they will set up.a Hole-in-One  contest on. the school grounds in.  Gibsons with prizes for near  misses and successful attempts.  Therev will be no age limit on  this Saturday afternoon event.  Would you believe a Demolition Derby. Cavalcade officials  have the personnel, the early  American cars and the potential  audience all lined up but seek a  location for this event. Anyone  owning a park, a field or a very  large rec-room is invited to contact Cavalcade (members'.  The entire program for the  August 7, 8 and 9 Gibsons Sea  Cavalcade will be printed in this  paper next5week.  Tickets for Saturday ' night's  Sea Cavalcade Cabaret are going fast) and may be obtained  from Sea Cavalcade committee  members.  MOVING JOB  The district school board office now in the B.C. Telephones  building on North Road will be  back in the Lang block on Gower Point road by Monday, August 1.  The moving job will start  Thursday when office equipment  will be moved along with school  supplies kept on hand.  GLEN BROWNING and Lyle Derosier, both 15 years of age, are  pals and interested in taxidermy. Both were visitors at the H. Jl;  Johnston home in Granthams when the picture was taken. Glen  started one year ago and Lyle six months ago. The picture shows  a pheasant, pigeon, rooster and starling. At their home in Haney,,  where they live about two miles apart, they have other stuffed  birds. Glen learned taxidermy. through a correspondence coursei  from the Northwest School of Taxidermy in Omaha, Nebraska.  Objection by- SCEPS  Reservoir nearly ready  Work on the Sunshine Coast  Regional District 1,000,000 gallon water reservoir between Sechelt and Selma Park has resumed following cessation of  strike action by construction  workers. Regional board officials  are of the opinion it might be  completely cemented by the end  of this week.  Contractors are Mutual Construction Company, a local contracting unit reported to involve  the P & W Development Ltd.  Mutual's bid for the tender totalled $44,726.  There were two  other tenders and both were in  the $60,000 range.  Once this reservoir is capable  of holding water it will be connected to the present Davis Bay  water system which leads into  other lines running to Roberts  Creek, and in the other direction  to West Sechelt area.  This will result in increased  pressure through the system and  offer greater .fire protection.  The site of the reservoir is on  land,east of Sechelt Indian Reserve and at the corner where  the B.C. Hydro right of way  crosses the area.  Editor: I think it must be  agreed that the Coast News did  an excellent job of covering the  appeal held before the Pollution  Control branch on July 14 from  the -'point of view/ of the village  of Gibsons. It is difficult to understand why nb effort was made  'to learn the other side of the  coin and it is the purpose of this  ��� letter to inform the public of  such matters. The Sunshine  Coast Environment Protection  ���society ''������c��ns��_i^s^^  democratic right of the public  to know what in fact the appeal  was all about.  (Editor's note: the municipal  council used its democratic right  to inform the public through the  Coast News, SPEC officials in  this area had the .same right but  neglected to follow through. We  receive plenty of general material from the SPEC .provincial  organization without "having to  ask for it. SPEC locally must  learn to protect itself:)  In legal language the submission of the appellant reads as  follows: In the matter of an appeal from the decision of the  Director of the Pollution Control Branch that certain objections to the granting of a permit to the above-named applicant (The Village of Gibsons)  did not warrant a hearing.  In other words, the appeal  was not, repeat not, against the  village of Gibsons, but against  the director of the Pollution Control branch, who had refused to'  permit a hearing concerning the  Objections of some individuals to  the village of Gibsons application for sewage collection and  disposal. This fact cannot be  over emphasized and it must be  quite clear to everyone that the  Pollution Control branch has not  given the people the details of  the application. The lawyer representing the appellant put forth  16 reasons to show that the director of the Pollution Control  branch was in fact guilty of disregarding the law when he refused a hearing and in essence  that is what the appeal was all  about.  The village of Gibsons took  the opportunity once more of  presenting its case, but in fact,  this and the letters and brief  read were quite irrelevant to the  appeal in question.  The Sunshine Coast Environment Protection Society, now as  what its intentions are regarding  a   member   of   the   Vancouver  based SPEC organization would  respectfully suggest tb^ the vil-,  lage of Gibsons that they too attack the director of the Pollution Control branch for not al- ;  lowing a hearing on their, application so that the air may be7  cleared to the satisfaction of allr  concerned.  '.... The delay, on the part of the  PCB to. isstiea peimit must be  rve^f ru_trfit&  'Gibsons' aridit-would appear that  a hearing such as that held in  Sechelt recently in connection  with the Van EgmondL application at Halfmoon Bay would be  to the definite advantage of, the  village. This means the director  of PCB would be present to make  quite clear the intentions of his  department, and briefs by interested and concerned people  would be presented.  It is quite conceivable that if  all the facts were known, all objections would be withdrawn and  then this prolonged and agonizing discourse would come to an.  end and the permit to commence  operations would be issued.  John Hind-Smith,  Secretary, SCEPS.  July weather  not usually dry  What kind of a month is July  on weather charts? July of this  year has been quite dry but not  -as dry as July 1958 when no rain  fell.  July is not a notoriously dry  month, according to records  kept by Dick Kennett, local  weatherman. In the last 15 years  only five of them recorded less  than one inch of July rain.  One July had nearly five inches. Three others passed the  three inch mark and two the two  inch mark. There were three  that, had more than one inch of  rain.

No room for cheers  The second war maxim that inflation is like pregnancy ��� you  cannot have a little of it ��� is (being borne out by events today.  There are similarities between today's situation and that of 1941  when the Ottawa government put a ceiling on prices.  At that time Minister of Finance J. L. Ilsley revealed that it  had been estimated that every rise of one point in the cost-of-living  index cost Canadian consumers as a whole about $35,000,000 a  year. To curb this added cost it became necessary then to expand  the Wartime Prices and Trade Board and the cost of the board  was roughly $50,000,000 in order that it could quell inflation and  save the country $500,000,000.  This is on record and is not derived from the imagination of  an editorial writer. Any control of prices and wages is going to  cost us money and furthermore disrupt the economy. Controls on  prices and wages in an era that has escalation clauses in wage  contracts will present an endless task in the field of controls. When  controls are lifted we will be right back where we started with,  prices and wages spurting upwards ��� unless we lhave permanent  controls. Right there we have an impossibility.  Bank of Canada Governor Louis Rasminsky in a recent-speech  to the Winnipeg Canadian Club said that one cannot but be impressed by the futility of a system in which everyone must try to  protect himself against rising prices; and by the inequity involved  in the severe penalties inflicted on those who are unable to do so,  because they have little or no bargaining power. It is not the strong  but the weak who suffer from inflation.  Iri his speech he urged restraint and prudence on the part of  governihents ��� all governments ��� 'management and labor. If this  was not done he maintained we would have to adjust to hard economic reality in other more painful ways. He included a statement worth deep consideration. Here it is: Public understanding  of the limits of the economy in providing real increases in incomes,  and public support in restraining money demands within these  limits, are essential.  If a suggestion can be offered on that remark it could be that  there is a bottom to the money barrel.  The above editorial appeared in the Coast News, Nov. 9,  1967. There have been signs of slight improvement in the national monetary situation but not; enough to create need for cheers  or congratulations. While there is some money at the bottom of the  barrel it does not mean it is all available for increased profits,  prices and wages. !        ^  The elusive umbrella  A discussion of umbrellas miglht be regarded as a bad omen in  the event of rain falling. Umbrellas are not usual items for discussion except when they become lost at the time most needed.  It has been found that an umbrella: can vanish undetected at  any moment, such as when you visit the bank and walk out without  it, hours later you ponder over where on earth, that umbrella could  be.. ''.���'.'  Even when you have an extra umbrella it is not in the right  place at the right time and you discover that it is now with Mrs.  so-and-so who while visiting was given the #ise of it to get her home.  Maybe it is still there or maybe she loaned it to sorne other Mrs.  So-and-So under similar circumstances.  Umbrellas are definitely essential in an area where the climate  allows moisture to drop. But for some reason they are a most elusive article when needed most.  The faith people have is revealed in a comment made by a minister who noted at a service to pray for rain that no member of .  his congregation had sufficient foresight to arm themselves with  an umbrella.  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  A blue haze spurted: up Tfrom  the region of the North fence  and hung there questioningly before scuttling off into the atmosphere. Hypo was.there snipping  off blackberry shoots which had  entered the garden. She was  hunting for the scarlet runners  which she was sure were somewhere beneath the fierce spikes  of the berry vines clinging to  what was left of a picket fence,  and, as the cruel thorns dug into  her hands and wound around her  neck she addressed them in suitable language.  Insensitive to her frank remarks they popped out at her  through the palings and under  and over the fence and had playfully taken a stranglehold on her  throat when she heard the telephone ring in the house. Extricating. herself, peeling off strips  of flesh in the effort, she stumbled, dripping gore, to the in-  .strument, to hear the voice of a  friend in Vancouver.  "Surprise! Surprise! We are  .coming up tomorrow; there will  be five of us. We'll pick you up  early and have a long, lazy day  at the beach. Now, don't do a  thing, honey. We'll bring enough  food for you and you can have a  nice rest."  Hypo fell into a chair and her  eyes swept frantically about the  room. The spaniel had taken  his hourly roll in the dust of the  driveway finishing off in the  middle of the floor. The cake  and cookie tins were empty because it was too hot to bake and  for the same reason the vacuuming and dusting had been neglected throughout the house.  She grabbed the broom but  dropped it to rush into the nearest bedroom where likely her  friends would go to leave their  coats. There; she found that the  cat had sneaked in to sleep leaving a nest of sand, fur and a  dead leaf or two on the.middle  of the bed spread. She. whisked  it off and replaced it with another old relic being careful to  have the faded part on the far  side. Windows next. Before she  quite appliedthe Bon Ami she  decided the guests might be  weairirig dark glasses and would  not notice the insect-specked  panes and rushed tp the kitchen  to put the ham on to simmer,  picking up a couple of vases of  aged flowers on the way out.  Next she whipped up a cake  and tossed it ���> in the oven and,  while it was baking, brushed  most of the junk off the window .  sills7 into a handy drawer. A  flick of the duster over the TV  where the most light hit and a  quick sweeping .here and there  finished her preparations until  she remembered that her Mend  was tall and would be sure to  see the dust on that second shelf  over the sink. She got the duster  again and went over the outer  V  *)   -" vf^ft-U-   Islv'C^ ���   -���"���7>f  re coiiumg up!  edge (the 43 glasses and 28 egg  cups would cove the rest).   '  Next morning, - haying had to  rise earlier than usual in order  to get her regular work done in  preparationTfbr her ihdliday: Hypo had little time to worry about  her housekeeping deficiencies.  Instead she iced the cake and  otherwise busied herself in the  culinary department.; X'-  The ferry was rigiit on. time  .   and  so  were  her friends,   arid  while she was hastily changing  her dress in her room they, arrived at the door���severi instead  of five���and spread out, all;talking at once, to every part of the  house. In fact, she emerged ;just  in time  to prevent her friend,  who had already glanced at the.  egg   cups,   from   entering   old  glory   hole,   the   storeroom,   a:  cobwebby    temporary     resting  place  for  anythirigT. and  everything looking for a home. In fact  the storeroom was a good second to the attic, and she would  have shot anyone who rummaged up there.  "I've a few saridwiches made,  shall I take them along?" Hypo  asked.  "If you want to," the. friend ���',  Said,  "but we've  loads  of ev-,  erything."  They settled themselves in the  station wagon and were on their  way. Moments later, Hypo hanging on to the window-winder for  dear life (the driver was from  the States and apparently mistook the highway for a freeway)  they arrived iri Sechelt and  came to a halt at the beach in a  spot fully exposed to the midday heat.  "O no!" thought Hypo who  was allergic to sun. ;  "This is lovely," said her  friend. "It is good to get out in  the sun."  They spread a cloth by the  side of the road overlooking the  sea and fetched the picnic baskets from the car. Then it. apr  peared that each of the gang had  thought the others were to bring  ���the potato salad, the tomatoes,  the ham sandwiches and the  thermoses of coffee.  Lunch consisted of a package  of corn flakes that had been,  and still was, clutched in the  hand of the" fourryear-old ever  since leaving Vancouver and  four dozen very rich pastries,  plus, of course* the meat and  pickle sandwiches, cucumber  sandwiches, scones spread-with  jelly, a bag of apricots and one  thermos of coffee brought by  Hypo.    %  [Hours later, after the friends  had eaten, walked, jumped, frolicked in the sea, taken pictures,  executed hand springs and otherwise dissipated their energy  they returned to Hypo's blackberry acres dragging along her  comatose and dehydrated body.

Howe  didn't go to high school, went to  work and hockey instead. Why  is it the greatest advocates of  'stay in school' are the ones who  didn't go yet have been the  greatest successes in their work?  "Do your own boys take abuse  because you are famous?"  They do in hockey but they  can handle it. His sons, aged 16  and 15 and about 180 lbs, added  that they had to throw a little  leather or fire a well-directed  puck to quiet the tormentors.  "How come you spend so  much time in the penalty box?"  "I'm out to win and when I  use my stick and my weight in  a way the rules don't allow, I  hope to get away with it." Well,  no one expects hockey to be a  dainty game for the delicate anyway.  "Did you really hit Sanderson  in the ear with your elbow?"  "Could be, but I've got narrow  shoulders and I have to keep  my elbows up to keep me even  with the big guys."  Other tid-bits: All hockey players are bilingual, usually English and Profanity.

All told there were 11 people  t-Q feed and Hypo could picture  them milling about under each  other's feet, spearing one another iri the eye arid squashing  the fruit uriderfoot into the floor.

The rest of the scones, a couple of loaves of home-made  bread, the cake, cookies, sliced  tomatoes and cucumbers, pickles  two;jars of fruit arid a custard  pudding intermingled'with jams  jellies arid relishes all were  crowdied on.the two tables and  executed a startling disappearance act iri'iio'time.  The little one, still clutching  her package of corn flakes, asked for a fried egg but didn't  touch it when it was put before  ���her. By the time they wasted  half an hour getting the egg just  right and attempting to get her  to at least taste it it was late  arid they had to rush to catch  the ferry.

The  cleaner should be told of the  staining substance for successful stain removal and be shown  the: exact stained area.  Among the no-nos are press-'  ing a stained garment as heat  will set the stain and make it  iinpossible to remove.  Use of untested home stain  removers should be avoided because they often.aggravate the  condition. Wearing of valued  garments when applying a cold  wave solution in another tabu  as the solution will discolor the  garment,as will the hair which  is still damp with the chemical.  .

DOUGLAS VARIETY & PAINTS  McCall's Patterns, Laces, Remnants & Singer Supplies  Sunnycrest Plaza, Gibsons ��� Ph. 886-2615  A unique program in the arts  will be offered at the Cambrian  College Sudbury campus this  fall. It is known as performing  arts technology and has features that make it the only one  of its kind in the world.  In setting up its new program,  Cambrian has hired experts in  a variety of fields, including  composer E. Klyne Headley.  As head of the college's music  department since September,  1969, Headley has taken a leading role iri the inception of the  twin program.  Although originally from the  United States, Headley has  made his home in Canada since  1959, residing in Vancouver and  Gibsons until he came to Sudbury to assume his post with  Cambrian.  A master of music from the  Eastman School of Music, Rochester, N.Y., Headley was in  charge of the department of  theory and composition at the  University of California at Santa Barbara for 15 years and directed the famed Cornish School  of Allied Arts in Seattle for five.  During his B.C. years, he was  engaged in research, composition, lecturing and conducting.  The key word in the new program is technology. As defined  by Cambrian in its course manual, the term is used in connection with performing arts  because "a technologist is one  with a special type of training  who makes a distinctive contribution in many fields."  The program has two divisions 7__ music and fine arts  (including drawing, painting,  sculpture and printmaking).  What makes the program unique is- that it is geared to  multiple    employment   possibil  ities, not merely to those pursuits traditionally identified with  the various disciplines that will  be taught. The program is also  geared to change.  Drop in and while you wait  we can make a copy for you on  our Xerox of any important document you have.  Coast News, July 29, 1970.

Isabel Dawson was made  honorary chief of the Kingcome  Indian Band last Thanksgiving  Day, and given the name Pud-  lass, which means Guests Never  Leave Her House Hungry. Recently, on her return to King-  come Village^ she was presented witih ; c6reinonial robes and  api_>n, bearing the insignia of  the Tswadaniuk people of the  I.ingcome Indian Band. This  past weekend, while attending  Mackenzie Day in Bella Coola,  she was honored with a new  name and chieftanship in the  Bella COola Indian Band.  In welcoming her to the band,  Chief Lawrence Pootlass called  upon one of the seniormembers  of the Band to bestow the name  Anapsutlanumlicri upon her. The  name originally was'applied to  two people who married-and  produced many cliildreri, but its  meaning as applied to Hon. Isabel Dawson was given as One  who is learning good and increasing in knowledge of what  s he is doing among Indian people.  Ceremonial dances were performed in her honor, and she  was invited to join in ope of the  dances with the women of the  band. The colorful robes of the  worrien, and their graceful performance of the dance, was added to by beating of drums and  sticks, and ���Mrs. Dawson's own  ceremonial robes from the King-  come Band fitted in with the  "group.     7_ -_ 7.-,. .  _.X: ���  Margaret Edgar, a member of  the , Bella Coola band, -prefaced  each dance with a story, beautifully and simply told, and the  dances themselves were masterpieces of symbolism and grace.

The legend of the Thunderbird  was told in story form and,; executed iri -the dance. This dance  is a particulariy intricate one  a nd the costumies worn by the  dancers made one almost feel  the presence^pf the Bird in the  room. ���   ;7.i;..;;-'7--:   ..-' .���  .  In 'addition* to Tbeirig honored  by the BellaTCoola Band, Mrs.  Dawson cut a ribbon and opened the new Museum in Bella  Coola, and attended a barbecue  held at the local community and  provincial park. The Museum  building is part of the original  school house built in 1892, and is  made of hewn logs.  7 .   t  People iri the Bella Coola area  have contributed many: interesting pictures and artifacts of early days in the valley. Much of  the credit for the-present museum is due to: Mike Christiansen, who has labored assiduously in order to see this project  become reality.

GEMMILL  Medical Health Officer)  In the past few weeks there  has been a great deal of general  interest in the new vaccine to  eliminate Geririan Measles (Rubella). It is hoped that this vaccine will be made available in  the near future.  The  protection  against com-  : municable diseases provided by  immunization is a benefit of medical research that we tend to  take   for 'granted.   Each  year,  "Public Health Nurses Thave to  seek out those children who have  not had the benefit of established    iriimunizatiori    procedures,  Food booth  OK for wharf  Tiki Food, a dispensing company now operating in vicinity  of Langdale Ferry terminus has'  received permission from Gibsons municipal council to open  a booth on the Municipal Wharf  in Gibsons.  Aid. Gerry Dixon, reported the  company had been passed toy  provincial department of health  officials. He added that water  and sewage from, the Tiki units  was retained in holding tanks  for disposal elsewhere.  Aid. Charles Mandelkau spoke  on behalf of local merchants,  maintaining they paid their business licenses the year round and  perhaps would not like someone  coming for a couple of months  to take:the cream off the harbor  landing business. Discussion revealed that as regards restaurants in Gibsons, .they were riot  worried about.such units operating in the area.  ���;The result was the" Dixon-  Crosbjf motion that Tiki Food be  allowed to place a unit on; the  wharf head was passed.  Aid for Indians  Contracts totalling $1,124,343  for construction and maintenance work on Indian reserves in  five provinces were awarded by  the federal department of Indian Affairs arid Northern Development during the three months  ended May 31.  Electrical work totalling $66,-  481 will be done on the Bella Bella Indian Reserve an British Columbia by Linski Electric Ltd. of  Prince Rupert.

Haida".  and I would request that at this;  time parents review the-immun-!  ization state of their chi^drpri. ������>>  The aim of the Health [branch/  is to protect every child against)  smallpox, diphtheria, whooping  cough, tetanus, poliomyelitis and  measles. Prevention of disease  continues to be our most iiripbr-  tant goal. It is important to  make sure that all our children  are given the necessary shots to  provide this protection.  Each" year, more and more  people are moving from province  to province. The adequate irii-"  munization Of many children has  been interrupted by travel. In  many instances, parents have a  tendency to avoid or put off this  valuable preventive service. I  would especially ask the new  residents in our area to review  the immunization records of  their children and to discuss any  problems or doubts with the local health unit.  Once the primary immunization series has been completed,  (starting at 3 months of age) it  is essential that reinforcing or  booster doses be;given at regu- i  lar intervals. It. is recommended  that the first, of these booster  doses . be given at about 14  months of age, thei second on  entry to elementary school, and  subsequent doses every five  years, to ensure that a high level of protection is maintained  throughout, life. *  Immunizations against certain  diseases require time. For example, it is recommerided that  where live vaccines are used (as  in poliomyelitis, measles, and  German measles) that there be  a four week interval between  ..giving the shots for a specific  disease.  In the spring of each year, the  Health unit conducts a preschool round-up in an attempt to  bring immunizations up to date  before a child starts school. If  you missed this opportunity, or  if you are new residents to our  area and are unsure about your  child's immunizations, then  please contact the public health,  nurse at the Health unit office  in your area. Make sure that  you and your family enjoy all  the benefits of prevention by immunization.  SUPPORTS MEASLES FUND  The BiC. Teachers Federation  has come out strongly in support  of the German Measles Fund.  Federation President Jim Kil-  leen has asked all local associations of the BCTF to consider  support of the fund started by  the Kinsmen. In addition, the  BCTF central office will be making a donation to the fund. Already the Coquitlam Teachers'  Association has pledged $1,000  to be used toy the Simon Fraser  Health Unit in Coquitlam.  How do you catch at narwhal?  Dr. Murray Newman, quiet-  spoken but immensely energetic  director of the Vancouver Aquar  ium explains that the narwhal  is a small, grey-colored member  of the whale family living mainly in Arctic waters, that there  are only-a few thousand in the  world, and rio'ne in captivity, and  capture of one would be an immense achievement.  s   So, on July 31, Dr. Newman  leads a small expedition to Milne  Inlet,  about 700 miles north of  .the Arctic Circle, to try and capture not one but five narwhals  ,;for the Vancouver Aquarium in  Stanley Park.  While considerable knowledge  v is available on these creatures  i through autopsies and observa-  ���i tions, no one really knows much  about them at all, although every school boy ds familiar with  them  when told they  are  sea  j mammals which have the long,  ( spiralling tusk protruding from  their faces like an ancient uni-  C corn.  "���i-    The male grows up to 18 feet  7 and can weigh a ton, and, the  i unicorn tusk is actually a tremendous development of; the upper left canine tooth growing up  *"��� to eight feet long. Dr. Newman  ��� has one nine feet long which is  : thought to be the. largest any-  *  where.   No   one   really   knows  what   this   complicated   spiral  tusk is for, although some scientists think it may simply be a  secondary    sex    characteristic  analogous with a man's beard  or the antlers of a deer. The female is a little smaller in size,  and has no unicorn spiral.  Many white men have died in  the high Arctic because of scurvy, but the Eskimo slaughters  the narwhal and chews its thick  hide which is loaded with Vitamin C and thus prevents scurvy.  Dr. Newiman says there are  probably only about 12,000 narwhals left in the world, with the  great majority in the Canadian  Arctic making it a truly Canadian animal.  In mid-summer, 1968, Dr. Newman led a small expedition to  Pond Inlet on the narwhal's annual migration route. It was an  exploratory fact-findirig" trip ori  a small $4,000 budget and no  really serious effort was made  to capture an adult, although attempts were made to catch  small narwhals. But that trip  fired the imagination.  In 1969 he had no money, but  he kept planning. He said that  even one narwhal ��� he has a  permit from the Canadian government to take five, alive ���  would make the aquarium and  Vancouver world-famous, and he  recalled the fabulous world-wide  publicity when he and his associates captured the first killer  Whale, Moby Doll, in 1964.  Last year, James Graham, a  Vancouver foundry owner, and  his wife were in the high Arctic  and saw narwhals and he was  so captivated by them, and amazed that one had never been  captured, that he underwrote  this year's expedition. Dr. Newman is budgeting $25,000 for the  trip..  Last year, a tiny wounded  suckling narwhal was found near  Pond Inlet, and was sold to the  New York Aquarium���Dr. Newman turned it down���but it soon  died of pneumonia.  The logistics are frightening,  enough to sent a transportation  officer of an army brigade  screaming up the wall. The expedition is only nine people, but  large amounts of equipment  must be transported by Pacific  Western Airlines 727 jet to Resolute, on the rim of the world,  Which is right?  Long-time residents on Crow  Road are puzzled over the way  this road's name is spelt. It was  named after Joseph Crow who  settled there in 1914. .  Now the provincial roads department prefers to call : it  Crowe road and some of the  Crow road adherents are wondering why, and further, if it  can be changed back to the original spelling, Crow road.  It has also been noticed that  the mail box area has become  quite a place for litter as the result of unwanted mail being distributed on the ground. There is  a movement which might result  in the naming of this area Litter  Lane.  and then reloaded and shipped  by twin Otter with DC-3 wheels  for Milne Inlet, the site of an old  iron mine..  Eskimos and a schooner,  wihaleiboats and canoes must be  hired, and instructed, and led.  Narwhals must be located, and  a radio network, using the  RCMP services, must be set up  and manned. Some years the  creatures do not follow their usual migration pattern. They  must be caught, with seine, nets  or snares and transported, often  miles through dangerous ice  floes, to inflatable portable swim  ming pools on shore, arid they  must then be kept alive.  - And no one really knows how  to do any of this, for, as Drj.  Newman said, "No one has ever  done it before."  Finally, they must be loaded  into specially^built slings, wrestled into the Otter, flown to Resolute,  loaded into the jetlines,  flown 2,000 miles south to Edmonton, loaded into another  chartered aircraft, flown 800  miles to Vancouver, and loaded  into a truck to the Vancouver  Aquarium.  No one knows if they will  feed out of their natural habitat.  Can they stand climactic differences is a good question, but Dr.  Newman thinks so because their  cousins, the beluga whale, have  done very nicely at the aquarium. What is their temperament? What is a thousand  things?  Along the line, a dozen things  could go wrong, and some even  simultaneously. If there was  ever a project being played by  ear it is the Great Narwhal Expedition.  But it all excites the imagination. Many people from around  the world want to take part in  the month-long expedition. Very  few will.  MacGREGOR PACIFIC REALTY  GIBSONS, B.C.

W. K. Kiernan, minister of recreation and conservation and minister of travel industry.  The amendments .mean that  Section 3 of the act, which deals  with containers for beer, ale,  carbonated beverages and other  drinks, becomes law as of August 15, insofar as exchanges are  permitted, and remains Jan. 1,  1971, as applied to refunds.  In addition, containers of both  metal and glass will be subject  to the same refunds.  Mr. Kiernan pointed out that  while Section 3 becomes effective August 15, the remainder of  the act became law on July 1,  as announced in May.  Explaining; the amendments,  he said that from August 15 to  Jan. 1* the merchant has the option, in lieu of, refund, to exchange the same number of full  containers, at no extra charge  to the purchaser for the containers, for empty containers delivered to him. Effective Jan. 1,  all containers will be refundable  and containers bearing any indication that they are not refundable or that no refund is payable  shall not be used in British Columbia.  To avoid the possibility of  empty containers being brought  into the province for the purpose  of obtaining refunds, no merchant will be required to refund  more than 18 empty containers  for any one customer in any one  day. The refund is established  by the act as two cents per container!  .When the first regulations  were announced it was indicated  that businesses in British Columbia manufacturing and filling  metal containers could continue  to do so without their containers  being refundable. That exception  has been dropped.  Mr. Kiernan said that it was  important that the regulations  be read in conjunction with the  act in order to fully appreciate  the significance of the new law.  He pointed out that a pamphlet  explaining the Litter Act had already been-widely distributed  and that he anticipated a new  and more explicit pamphlet  would be produced in the fall  that would be of general public  interest.

G6nsumefs/  news  and   views  by  Consumers' Association of Canada  Vfl_��!  \x-y  Painting in and around your  home can be easier than you  .think and for consumer savings  is still the quickest and best way  to achieve a fresh look. Almost  any room can be changed with  an investment of only a few dollars.  Consumers' Association of  Canada suggests that if you are  not too knowledgeable in this  field your paint dealer will give  you all the information you require on accessories such as  brushes, rollers, putty, edgexs  and so on. But before yOu go to  the dealer, measure the area  you are going to paint and ask  him to estimate how.much it will  require. He will be able to give  you a closer estimate than you  can arrive at yourself.  One point to consider: if the  estimate should come to three  quarts, it might be wiser to.buy  the gallon for the few added  cents it will cost for the extra  quart. It will come in handy for  touchups as the next time you  go to buy paint it might be a  different batch and slightly different in color.  An executive of one of the  world's largest paint companies  once said he did not make money on the paint he sold, but rather on the paint the consumer  wastes. So a real money-saver  is to be sure to seal the left-over  paint properly. Clean the rim  and lid of the can thoroughly  with whatever solvent is recommended and seal it, gently tapping the lid in place with a hammer. Store the can upside down.  By following this procedure,  even enamel should remain in  excellent condition.  The best single piece of advice isj read the label before  you apply the paint. The label  directions are not advertising.  They are written for a purpose  and for your information. The  Canadian Paint Manufacturers  Association suggests every instruction be followed to the letter if you want a beautiful paint  job and offers some guidance for  do-it-yourself painters.  Don't jump in without first  making the necessary preparations. Fill all cracks in plaster  walls with spackling material,  using a putty knife, a kitchen  knife or a' versatile finger and  thumb. When the patching is  completely dry, sand the surface  smooth and dust your walls  thoroughly.   .  To make your painting easier  remove all hardware and light  fixtures from the room and cover with masking tape. Kitchen  and bathroom walls should be  washed with household cleansers  to remove dirt and grease. Cover all floors and furniture with  drop-cloths before painting because a few spatters are inevitable. Now you are ready to apply the undercoating or primer.  By dipping the bristles of your  brush no more than one-third of  their length you can minimize  clean-up problems. Save yourself extra work by wiping with  WARREN DAVIS is host for  Something to Say, the weekly  program if interviews with prominent people, from Richard  Burton to Gordon Sinclair to  Nancy Wilson. With Warren as  host, the stars feel comfortable  and tell all! It's heard Sundays.  a damp cloth before the spatters  dry:-'  ���'' 7;     ,.  Start, with the ceiling and work  "across the width of the room, so  you can begin the second lap before the first lias dried. And remember ��� don't try to move  your ladder with paint or tools  aboard.  >  Now begin the walls and watch  your room take shape. Start at  the upper left hand corner and  work down toward the floor. Follow this order whether you are  using a brush or a roller.  Finally, tackle the woodwork.  A round one-inch brush is handy  for the window sash; a two-inch  brush makes painting the trim  a simple affair: When you paint  panelled doors it's a good idea  to coat the panels first then the  centre rail. The top and bottom  rails come next, then the vertical stiles and edges last.  As soon as you are finished,  clean up your brushes and tools  so they will be in good shape for  your next painting spree; Good  brushes are a wise investment v  but must be cared for and should  be cleaned and stored carefully.  CAC reminds you that there  are certain dangers in connection with painting. Virtually all  solvents used with paint for thinning and cleaning up are toxic  and highly flammable. These  must be/kept away from children. It is advisable to dispose  of all paint rags immediately  but at least spread them out to  lessen the danger of spontaneous  combustion if you haven't fin-'  ished your painting and want to  use them again.  For safety's sake, if you are  planning on using a raised! platform, be sure it is rigged from  two strong ladders and a; wide  plank. Otherwise you may enjoy your new room from the  confines of a recovery bed. Allow the plank to extend at least  a foot beyond'the step of ttie  ladder on which it rests and  make sure the ladders are fully  open and locked in position.  From the price point.of view  be wary of excessively low prices as the dealer may be trying  to clear his shelves of old, deteriorated stock. Unlike many  other commodities, the higher  the price, the better the quality.  A good paint lasting three or  more-years is a better buy than  a cheap paint ^that will washoff  h? one year. 77;  Useful information such as  this appears "regularly in the bimonthly magazine, Canadian  Consumer.

Anglicans plan  pensioner help  The first development grant to  a citizens' action committee by  the Primate's World Relief and  Development Fund of the Anglican Church of Canada has gone 7  to an organiization called Pen- 7-  sioners Concerned.  The grant of $5,000 was presented on June 16 by Most Rev.  Howard H.

The organization, formed in  1969 is designed to spark interest across Canada on the part  of all retirees to approach the  three levels of government to at  least partially restore the purchasing power of the retiree's  income that has been eroded by  inflation.  LEACOCK MOUNTAIN  A mountain rising 10,200 feet  in the Yukon's St. Elias range  has been named for the Canadian humorist Stephen Leacock.  Capped by snow and with a needle-like peak reseimfoling the  Matterhorn, iMount Leacock  looms over an arm of the massive Kaskawulsh Glacier The  closest access is from the Alaska Highway, 22 "miles from its  base.     #  To convince unbelievers this  was a famous1 strawberry country 20 yearsrago, here is a news  itean from the TCoast News of  Monday, July 31? 1950.   -  "Local fruit growers may get  20 cents per .pound tfroin strawberries sold to the cannery in  Gibsons. This will be an increase  over returns from last, year but  total farm returns to individual  growers could|actuaUy-^ less  owing to curtailment in raspberry growiii^Bwthout compensating incre^|e|m strawiberries.

Reason given by Mr. Holland is.  that farmers could "find they  would make more money per  acre from strawberries and  therefore cut out several large  plots of the cane berries.  "From the same source comes  information    that    blackberries  will probably be high, in price  both this year and next year.  "Cannery secretary Robert  Burns was forcefulin his objection to shipping the prime product known throughout the American continent as being of the  , best, without identifying labels.  Mr. Burns said he thought pro- -  per labels would be ready for-  next year."  for Real Estate on the  Sunshine Coast  K. CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

A lease  may be wiritten or by word of  mouth but if it is written the  landlord must give the tenant a  copy of the lease within 21 days  after it has been signed. .  Landlords in some cities or  municipalities may lawfully require a security deposit, or what  is commonly calted a damage  deposit. The amount the landlord  may demand varies, depending  on whether the premises are furnished or unfurnished.  Landlords in other areas may  not demand security deposits but  instead, may require a tenant to  pay his last month's rent in advance. If this occurs the tenant  must be paid 6% interest on the  last mohth!s rent �� ana" therij, of  *ourse, when the last month of  his tenancy arrives, he pays no  rent, and collects his~ 6% interest."  If a tenant of residential premises misses a payment the  landlord cannot enter and ..seize  the tenant's furniture and have  it sold to pay the rent. Also if  the rented premises are a house  or an apartment and it is dam-  NEED TIRES?

A tenant may sub-let his premises to someone else but he  must have the landlord's consent and must request his consent a month in advance.  If a tenant 'breaks' his lease  by leaving before his term has  ; expired, then the landlord has a  duty to try and rent the premises to someone else and cannot  just leave them vacant and expect to claim each month's rent  as it falls due, from the original  'tenant.   . ' ":i'':    . 7 '..  A landlord and tenant must  mutually consent to any changes  in the locks on the premises. The  landlord must repair the premises and make sure that they are  fit for habitation by complying  with health and safety standards  On the other hand, the tenant  must keep the place reasonably  iclean and repair any damage  /that he has done.  If there is a clause in your  lease saying that "If you miss a  payment the whole or any part  of the rent for the unexpired  term of the tenancy becomes  due and payable,", this is what  is known as an acceleration  clause ��� and it is unenforceable  A landlord cannot raise the  rent during the first year of a  tenancy and if he raises the rent  after the first year, he must give  three month's notice of the increase.  A tenant has a limited right  to privacy. With the exception of  ah emergency, or where the  landlord has the right to show  the premises to prospective purchasers or tenants after notice  of termination of the tenancy  has been given, a landlord cannot enter leased premises without first giving the tenant 24  hours written notice.  A lease is a contract between  a landlord and a tenant whether  it be written or by word of  mouth. As such, the parties may  agree to include almost cny  terms orconditions as.long.as  they are not illegal. Therefore,  it is common to find such items  as no pets, no children, no unusual noise, no trade to be carried on in the premises, etc.  If you have any complaints refer them, firstly, to your landlord and if you cannot arrive at  an agreeable solution, then take  your complaint to your local  landlord-tenant advisory bureau.

The  thing -was folk music* superfine  folk music. The people entertaining: were six (seven including Mike Willis) young people  from UBC. I' shall introduce  them to the people who missed  the show.  Lynne Hamrii: Good voice, exceptional feeling for what she is  singing. Plays guitar. Her best  song (>my humble opinion) was  Hush-a-bye. It's a song that was  sung by Negro mammies to the  white babies . of their masters,  while their own young were at  home crying for food, attention  and a soothing voice.  Dianne Nefif: Dianne sang. She  sang softly and beautifully. I enjoyed everything that she sang.  Jane Christy: Jane was the silent partner, in as much as that  she didn't sing. Her bag was the  basic beat, she played the bass  fiddle. I asked her how she  could handle ��� such .a monstrous  instrument and she just smiled  and said: "Easy, I balance it."  I learned something.  Larry Newman: Mister backup for all; ATskilied artist and a  wit. Larry's repertoire was: guitar (six string and twelve string,  rhythm and melody), mardarin  and banjo. In some instances he  carried, the singers when they  faltered slightly. ' ' ,- ���  Terry Wood: He plays the guitar and sings. He was, without a  doubt, in my opinion, the best  single performer. He had emotion in his. songs and voice that  seemed to mould a persons mind  and implant a feeling reverence  for what was happening. He told  the audience that a lot of people ask him why he doesn't sing  happy? songs. He replies, "Well,  it's not my bag. Anyone can  maker a person smile or laugh. I  could make you laugh toy just  giving you the raspberries."  There was a ripple of laughter  over-the room.  His best song was an arrangement done by a friend and himself that they adapted from a  poem called Refugee Blues.  They changed the words slightly  i to fit the music and called it  City. The result, a combination  of feeling and good music-  Last,   but   not-least,   was   a  Bridal showers  In honor of bride-elect Miss  Mary Lamb of Sechelt, and Mr.  William E.
