 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  The only newspaper printed in the area Pert Mellon to Egmont  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 23  Number 34, September 9, 1970  10c per copy  1000 attend  Labor Day frolic  More than 1,000 persons attended the Labor Day celebration sponsored by area labor unions and Sechelt Indian band.  They were rewarded with a day  minus rain which helped make  the event on the Sechelt Indian  Reserve the biggest of its kind  on the Sunshine Coast.  On behalf of Sechelt Indian  band council, Chief Henry Paull  said:  It gives me great pleasure on  behalf of the chief and council  of the Sechelt Nation to welcome  each and every one of you to  our community for this Labor  Day celebration. We trust that  our Medicine Man will uphold  this good weather.  This gathering is the first of  its kind. Let it not be the last.  We hope your stay with us will  be most enjoyable. Visitors who  wish to visit our church are welcome to ,do so.  The working people of this  Sunshine Coast work together,  play together, and send our children to the same schools together. With our hands and minds  we have created the good things  of life that we enjoy. Today, let  us celebrate.  To entertain there was soccer,  bingo, tug-of-war, races and  games' for the youngsters and  teeners and a salmon barbecue.  Usually��� this event was held at  Seaside Park, Port Mellon. This  year it was decide-1 to expand  and hold a bigger event on the  Sechelt Indian Reservo. It drew  a much larger crowd.  Ball tourney likely  Next year British Columbia's  Festival of Sports may see Gibsons entry of a likely six team  softball tourney. ThJs 'was revealed at last week's municipal  council meeting by Aid. Gerry  Dixon when a letter from festival officials was read to council. He added that local sportsmen were interested.  The same letter read at Sechelt's council meeting Wednesday night of last week received,  slight discussion and was ordered filed.  A press. release from festival  officials says the second annual  British   Columbia   Festival   of ���  ^Sports*, May ^titfo^fry,^^ 7,7  1971,, pronaiseSKtb."he bigger and  abetter.' ;''���..-  Last year, in its initial staging,  the Festival of Sports brought  together 125,000 athletes from  all parts of the world, competing  in 247 events in 64 B.C. centres.  Forty-seven individual sports  were involved.  Already, 100 communities have  signified intentions of staging  events in 1971, British Columbia's Centennial Year. It is. hoped that some 200,000 athletes  will be involved.  Two sports not involved last  Sechelt Cubs  to register  The group committee of the 1st  Sechelt Wolf Cub pack announces registration night will be held  at St. Hilda's Anglican Church  Hall, Sechelt, Monday, Sept. 14  at 7:30 p.m.  Any   boy 8-10  years   of  age,  who wishes to become a cub or  continue as one, is welcome, but  ��� must fie accompanied by a parent or guardian. The fee for the  ._*���' entire year is $3.50.  This year, the pack will again  be under the capable leadership  of Mrs. Frank Leitner, assisted  by Mr. Bruce Cobleigh. Thanks  : to their interest and efforts in  attending recent training sessions, the boys can look forward  to a wide variety of interesting  programs in nature, citizenship,  self-reliance, self-development  and creative skills.  Parents will have the opportunity to hear more about this,  important training for their boy  and to meet the people responsible for administering the affairs  of the Sechelt pack.  PLANNER COMPLIMENTED  Soames Point Ratepayers complimented E. R. Cuylets, temporary planner for the Regional  District board on ihis explana-  iton of proposed zoning regulations at a meeting. A letter from  the ratepayers said Mr. Cuylets  had been most helpful. Mr. Cuylets has filled the position during summer months, returning  to university when classes resume.  year r- basketball and football  ��� have shown keen interest in  the Festival and are planning  events. Those sports that did  participate are already making  plans for an improved program.  Bowling, for instance, plans a  vast zone playdown. -Rugby is  talking of hosting Australian Cup  champion New South Wales. Soccer is negotiating with Leeds  United of the' English First Division. Field hockey plans international tournaments between  Canada, the United States and  possibly a team from Mexico,  -Japan or Europe. Boxing is look  ;ing:  lat : thevTWe^rnT Canada  Rights question  up to minister  In view of complaints over  spraying rights of way and other  matters involved, the Regional  District board will seek information from the department of municipal affairs as to the application of local bylaws where B.C.  Hydro and other Crown corporations are concerned.  Director Lome Wolverton of  Langdale district moved at the '  August meeting that B.C. Hydro  be requested to not spray the  right-of-way in vicinity of the  district's domestic water reservoir and to advise B.C. Hydro  that the board would hold it  solely responsible for any damage or injury caused should such  spraying take place.  Another aspect involved is that  of B.C. Hydro increasing the  size of its sub-station in Gibsons area without taking out a  building permit. The board was  informed that at Burnaby all  government organizations when  tackling expansions took out the  usual building permits before  starting.  NELSON LIVED HERE  Dale Merle Nelson, the man  held for the slaying of eight persons in the Creston area at one  time lived in this area. He is  reported to have worked for the  Heleta Logging company of Twin  Creeks and was known generally  as Cowboy. His name apfpears  in RCMP records as being guilty of a minor assault on July 2,  1968 when he was fined $25.  $300,000 EXPANSION  Work has started at YMCA  Camp Elphinstone on improvements to cost in the vicinity of  $300,000. Dick Gaines, local contractor is doing the work.  Included is a large new dining  room and kitchen and the installation of cabins which will be  winterized to allow cold weather  use: The new dining room and  kitchen were announced late last  year.  Car lands jon Cliekwelp housetop  This is an unusual position for  an automobile to be, on top of a  house, but this one got' there  and as a result Billie Lee McConnell of Gibsons appearedun  court on a charge of impaired  driving. He was fined $500 ?ind  his driver's license suspended  one year. 7  McConnell     was     proceeding  along the highway from Granthams about 5:30 p.m. Saturday  and hit the right hand ditch and  travelled 105 feet, crossed the  highway for another 142 feet,  then went along the left-hand  shoulder for 33 feet then over the  bank and through the air for another 40 feet to land on the roof  of the home of Robert M. Anderson.  ���', Police and firemen responded  to an alarm and between them  McConnell was removed from  his car, bleeding from facial lacerations and bruises, and.  brought to the ground via ladders.

Jim Willfeamsbri jmainta^ihear r  it:is necessary that- we change,  our concept of labor. Work has  become a dirty word but true  work has presented us with the  best things  in life.  We  should  start   thinking   on   what   work  means to us today, he said.  Differing views of work have  Resulted in tensions between generations^ We7ne<Bd^pewj;���. ideas :oi  - wlSiun work' is7 'Tifealfoixafe :htit  enough,   ideals  and -action  are  needed.  We are so tied up we are dehumanized and most people are  not able to enjoy their rest and  leisure.  He based his sermon on Matthew 12: Come unto me, all ye  that labor and I will give you  rest:, Take) rhy^ypke. upon you  afl#_ea^  and lowly in heart; and ye shall  find rest in your souls. For my  yoke is easy and my burden is  light. And from Nehemiah: Their  hand shall be weakened from  work, that it be not done. Now  therefore O God, strengthen my  hands.  Functions, yes; authority, no  Aid. Norman Watson, Sechelt's  representative, on the Regional  District board complained at last  Wednesday night's meeting of Sechelt municipal council that the  Regional board is in the position of having functions to fulfill but no funds with which to  operate.  His main objection was the  way the provincial departments  are allowing leases' of land to  lie dormant for months in the  hands of the Regional board by  forcing delays through lack of  information on government policy. ,  He maintained the Regional  District board should have responsibility with authority also  funds and staff to do the necessary work. Aid Watson said Municipal Minister Campbell was  co-operating where he could but  with only one purse string and  that in the hands of the premier  not much can be expected. He  argued   that   an   official   who  Help measles drive  In line with what other municipalities are doing both Gibsons  and Sechelt councils have each  made available a grant of $100  in the campaign to immunize  pre.-school children chiefly from  the ravages of German measles,  known as Rubella.  The request for a municipal  grant came from Dr. D. L. Gem-  mill, director of the Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit with headquarters in Powell River. This health  unit covers the Powell River,  Sechelt and Squamish school  districts.  The 1970-71 period is regarded  as the epidemic year in B.C. for  German Measles. Mothers are  urged to contact their . local  Health Unit to see that their preschoolers and school children  are included in the program and  prevent damage to unborn babies from German measles.  Some provincial funds are available along with donations and  grants. Just how much of the  $100 from each council will be  required depends on the size of  the immunization program that  has to be done.  Gremlins hold celebration!  Last week's Coast News, its  16th anniversary issue under  present management, was expected to be off the press in normal time ��� but ��� a particularly  obnoxious gremlin hovering  about saw to it that irustration  elbowed its way into the scheme  of things, resulting in two pages  of type becoming a nice pile of  disarray on the floor.  What happened was that the  forme did not get locked onto  the press bed and when the press  started up the forme slid right  to the floor. This made it necessary to start from scratch to  assemble the advertising and get  the news items reset.  As a result instead of the staff  being cleared of the issue by  about 1 p.m. Wednesday, after  herculean effort the disaster was  limited to a two hour delay and  all was cleared by 3 p.m.  A couple of stories had to be  abandoned tfor that issue and  they are to be found in this issue. ������ is  would examine leased property  has miles and miles of territory  to cover and cannot cope. with  the general situation. The government collected 10 mills in  taxation but does not grant sufficient money to cover necessary work.  A letter from John Hind-Smith  asked that garbage burning in  backyards cease. Council agreed  with the idea but did not take  action. Aid. Watson reported  that up to 500 yards of gravel  from the hospital area would  have to be removed and at 35c  a yard delivered he thought  council should stockpile it for  future use. This was agreed to.  Aid. Flay wanted a business  license held up until the premises concerned obtained sanitation  facilities. Clerk Ted Rayner said  a business license had nothing to  do with health department requirements. The health unit will  be approached to get the sanitation problem straightened out.  Players to meet  Driftwood Players will hold  their first meeting of the fall  season Monday, Sept. 14 at 7:30  p.m. at the home of Eileen Glass  ford, 1732 Marine Drive, Gibsons. Driftwood Players received top honors for their presentation of Pinter's The Lovers in  the Vancouver Island Drama  Festival at Courtenay, last April.  The three act farce See How  They Run is scheduled for production in November, directed  by John Burnside who directed  them in the Pinter play.  Monday's meeting will not only  be organizational as auditions  for the play will be included.  Anyone interested in the theatre  invited to attend.

This remark was in an article in the Sunday Sun's Weekend  Magazine, containing a great deal of common sense. It was written by Donald R. Anderson, a management consultant with a knack  of foretelling the future.  He does not hold the view that the Establishment is on its way  out. He forecasts public demand will seek a more conservative  future and that declining numbers in the youth revolution brought  on by increasing age of youth, will show a distinct trend towards  conservatism. This he maintains is fundamental to human nature.  But to get back to the opening paragraph on the human touch.  Perhaps this might explain the rapid increase in Canada's services  industry. This industry's production concerns services only, not  goods. It requires today more; individuals producing '���'services than  goods in order to keep production lines moving.  The simplest parallel would be that with armies in the field it  takes something like seven to ten persons on servicing lines to keep  one man in action. This could be an exaggeration but one man on  real production does require others servicing him in various directions in order to help keep him producing. '  Mr. Anderson is of the opinion the future will hold considerable  rewards for people connected with the field of organized leisure or  the world of entertainment. This is a good example of servicing. He  also expects a swing back to the church and on the other end of  the scale a re -appearance of vaudeville and pie-in^the-face entertainment, all good servicing units.  He strongly suggests that people generally known as squares  who failed to sympathize with flower children or the love beat,  should hang on to their ideals. They have something going fori  them.  A word on dropouts  High school dropouts are not unmotivated young people, nor  do they necessarily lack the intelligence to finish grade 12 or 13,  contrary to public opinion. This is a conclusion of a study by the  Calgary Family Service bureau, reported in School Progress magazine.  Bert Marcuse, executive director of the bureau, launched the  survey because he became concerned about the stereotyped opini-  ions iof students who drop out, which label them as "no good, unmotivated people."  His interviews disclosed that two-thirds of the dropouts were  taking other courses or special training elsewhere. Boredom causes  many students to quit school, he found. Another cause is the fact}  that many older students who have left school and come back to  try again, just can't face it ��� they feel left out, isolated, uncofm-\  fortable.  There are some dropouts who cannot be helped and this thei  average teacher knows. However the Marcuse study of the dropout  problem does not make it appear that the situation is serious numerically. He reports other courses or special training elsewthefle  replacing the boredom some students found in schools.  Not so much is heard these days about dropouts. Perhaps they  are becoming fewer. Most likely the dropout has found the necessity for an educational standard is not something conjured up just  to keep him at school. So perhaps a good many of them have the  qualifications to be high grade school students.  With attention foeussed on violence in the Parrot's Beak,  Kent State, and countless city  streets, there is danger of losing sight of a desperate conflict  underlying much of the violence.  This is the conflict between Economic   Man   and   Social  Man.  Each of us, of course, is both  Economic and Social Man. Each  of us in concerned with making  a living and with living with his  fellows, but the mix varies, and  it is there that the source of  conflict lies.  Those who are 90 percent Economic Man see today's world  differently from those who are  90 percent Social Man. Many, in  whom the proportions more near  ly approach 50-50, are torn apart  by conflicting beliefs. And so we  have a kind of national schizophrenia which is both divisive  and debilitating.  Economic   Man   tends   to   be  concerned  primarily  with   producing goods and services, with  quantitative   problems.    He   is  largely responsible for the doubling in the nation's real output  over the past quarter of a century.   Ironically,\ however,   his  very success has made it possible for Social Man to gain  a  sympathetic hearing for his concerns about the distribution of  output and the quality of life.   -  The  turning  point  for many,  was   the   appearance   of   Prof.  John   Kenneth   Galbraith's  The  Affluent Society in the late nine-  teen-fifties.  Professor Galbraith  made   a   persuasive   argument  that the problem of production in  this nation had been solved. It  is no coincidence that the war  on poverty followed in the nine-  teen-sixties, and concern for the  environment promises to be the  issue of the nineteen-seventies.  Economic Man embodies many  of the values of the Establishment, which youth today finds  so distasteful. He believes that a  relatively free pursuit of self-interest has served his nation well;  that self-interest in a market  economy is expressed la_gely in  monetary terms; that monetary  rewards are directed by competition to the efficient and enterprising; and that the Puritan  ethic of hard work and self-discipline is still a major guidepost  to the good liife.  Social Man sees the good life  reached by quite a different  route. He stresses people rather  than things; human rather than  monetary values; and freedom  not to pursue one's self-interest  but to realize one's true individuality by involvement in a cooperative way in solving society's problems.  Obviously, these are caricatures, not carefully toned portraits, yet it is precisely because  such black-and-white conceptions  exist that much tof the current  conflict is possible.  Resources are expendable, but  in the short run, attempts to do  too much, to solve all our social  problems and still satisfy our inexhaustible desires for material  things will Only produce inflation. Limited resources force us  to make hard decisions about  priorities. In the longer run, it  is possible to meet rising social  needs without sacrificing mater- .  ial comforts; the slices may be  the same, but the pie can be  bigger. Social Man's best hope is  to work with Economic Man toward the kind of dynamic economy that will make such a happy solution possible.  Both Economic Man and Social Man have  a vital role to  play. Social problems cannot be the fruits of production,  solved   without   a   strong   and (From;.an article written by  growing economy, and we can- David iP.Eastburn, president of  not prosper economically if we the 'Federal' Reserve  Bank  of  continue to have large parts of Philadelphia ��� New York Times  the   population   not  sharing  in July 26. )s=  -  N.

CROSBY  For Real Estate on ihe  Sunshine Coast  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  Gibsons ��� 886-2481  This is a copy of a letter to  Premier Bennett:  Dear Mr. Premier: May I  make a few helpful suggestions  for your benefit and "the best  ferry service in the world."  I have been a resident in Great  Britain and travelled widely all  over Europe where of necessity  ferries are normal transport for  the use of those who pay the  taxes to support them.  Here in B.C. the tourist gets  all the benefit of these magnificent ferries, but the local residents are forced to travel by bus  �� or as foot passengers during the  months of July and August and  on any public holiday because  they cannot, being on business  bent, afford to sit in a queue for  anything up to six hours.  As you are well aware,  through the excellent services of  your minister without portfolio,  Hon. Isabel Dawson, most of the  residents on the Sunshine Coast  are retired and on-pension, and  these naturally go on foot as  they cannot afford cars. What facilities are there for these local  taxpayers?  1 would like to suggest:  1. At least six pushcarts for  taking luggage from the ticket  office to and onto the ferry at  each end of the line, Horseshoe  Bay and Langdale, six labelled  for each end, exchangeable. If,  at the end of one day, 11 were at  the Horseshoe Bay, the extra five  could be put on the last ferry  back to Langdale.

I need  no longer queue for the biggest  and best ferry service. ;  When and where the Squamish  Port Mellon road is built, may I  suggest that it be paid for by  those who voluntarily choose to  use it for vacation purposes to  see some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. That is,  that every car not bearing a  B.C. licence plate be charged a  fee of $1, thus causing no loss  on the ferries.  Re postal services in B.C.: I  personally would like all present personnel sacked, and all  hippie type welfare cases be  given the chance to be of the  establishment. The present service could not be worse so maybe this would be better.  I would like to know your  views on this matter, as Premier of British Columbia and Minister of Finance.  ���Dorothy J.

This applies to all persons 16 years- and over.       .  The proposal, announced by  Fisheries Minister Jack Davis,  has igone out for comment to the  advisory committee on sports  fishing. The fee structure has a  daily, monthly and yearly rate.  Maximum fee in the main fishing area is $25 a year. By the  month it is $10 and for short-  term visitors, there is a $1 per  day rate with a three day maximum extension.  In special areas, such as Rivers Inlet, Phillips Arm, waters  of Queen Charlotte Islands and  Gold River, only the annual licence of $25 applies.  More than 40,000 non-Canadians, most of them from the United States, fished in B.C.'s tidal  waters in 1976. This figure is  about 25% of the total sports  fishermen involved.

W&W0$M%M&^''W&&&%:'  When a doctor takes candid shots of your  spine, it's because your back hurts.  5,562 people in B.C. were disabled by  work-caused back injuries last year. And mosf  of those injuries could have been avoided.  To prevent a pain in the back, learn to  lift the correct way:  1. Bend your knees. 2. Get down, so your arms,  legs and back can share the load.  3. Keep your back straight and lift slowly.  And if it's too heavy, don't even try. Get help.  Some back injuries are the result of arthritis,  or other back disease. Other ailments are  caused by spinal defects you were born with.  They're likely to hurt you sooner or later.  But if your back injury is caused by your job,  the Workmen's Compensation Board can help  you with the best of medical care and  rehabilitation therapy.  We can give you some candid advice, too:  next time you lift something, save your back.  Use your head-  woRKmen's  compensation  BOS RD coLumBia 4    coast News, sept. 9,1970.

This convention was also the  last convention to be attended  by the founder of Kin, Hal Rogers. He and a small group started Kinsmen on February 20,  1920, in Hamilton. Three other  founding members were also  present. Mr. Rogers is now retiring, and moving to Arizona.  He was presented with a replica  of the bust of himself that now  stands in front of the Kinsmen  National Centre for Retardation  . in Toronto.  Bill Reid, of Whalley, a past  governor of District 5 (British  Columbia) was installed as national president, succeeding Dick  Rendek of Regina.  Ron and Marie said one of the  best aspects of the convention  was the opportunity to renew old  friendships and make new ones  during the time available for  fellowship. They met quite a few  whom they had met during the  1968 national convention at Kamloops, and Ron even ran into a  few he had known 15 years ago  while at the University of Saskatchewan.

"T  Jf_AS__-;.;j  ���_> .t-  rr  For the about-to-be-mother,  shopping for a new..baby presents a bewildering array of  choices. A buying guide on baby's needs in a recent Canadian  Consumer magazine suggests  that it is not at all necessary to  spend a great deal of money on  things for your baby ��� he will  be as happy with clothing, arid  equipment that meets minimum  standards as with the most expensive.  The main concern is to keep  the baby comfortable and happy  More often than not a baby may  be overdressed rather than under-dressed. Their heating system is better developed at birth  than the cooling system and babies need more help to keep cool  in hot weather than to keep  warm at ordinary room temperature.  Everything bought for the baby should be machine washable  and dryable and require no ironing. Clothing should be easy to  put on and take off. Too much  fuss in changing and dressing a  baby can make him irritable.  In your planning, the most basic need is diapers. Consider  first of all whether or not you  will use a diaper service. This  is much more expensive but it is  certainly more convenient. It  may be a worthwhile expenditure depending on how much you  value your time and whether you  already own the necessary laundry equipment. If you do decide  in favor of the diaper service,  you will require one dozen diapers for an emergency supply.  If you plan to do your own  laundry, you will need three to  four dozen diapers. There are  several fabrics to choose from:  gauze is soft and easy to fold  into the small sizes for newborns  and it also dries more quickly  than other fabrics. Stretch gauze  gives the best fit. Flannelette is  cheaper and may be slightly  more absorbent than gauze. Terry-towelling is used in England  and some Canadian mothers find  it satisfactory. Paper is used for  the disposable diapers. These  are far more expensive and probably are most useful when taking the baby on trips.  When buying the necessary  safety pins, remember the ones  with plastic heads are less safe  than (ordinary pins because they  break easily. The pins with the  steel head that slides up to unfasten and down to hold the pin  shut are the most satisfactory.  6       Coast News, Sept. 9, 1970.  a fold of the material because  they tend to pull away from the  lighter fabric. Examine the  snaps carefully; the best ones  have three separations in the  holding rim rather than just  one. Zippered sleepers certainly are handy but at times it can  be difficult to slide a wet zipper.  With the sleepers you may not  needs to buy shirts, but if you do  decide to use a shirt for your  baby, consider the stretchy fabric. The tied shirts are more adjustable than the buttoned ones.  Clothing size is difficult. A  newborn will swim in a 12-month  size but he will grow so fast  that most mothers wish they had  bought nothing but the 12-month  size or larger.

These  can be used for special occasions even if not all the time.  The plastic should not harden if  given proper care and this means  mild soap, warm water, handwashing and hand drying with  a towel or on a line. Never put  plastic pants through the regular wash cycle in your machine  or through a wringer.  One of the handiest garments  you could have for a baby is  sleepers, which are also called  playsuits or coveralls. You can  use at least six of these but as  they are a popular gift, the article suggests that two should be  sufficient as basic equipment.  Quality is important because the  suits are used constantly. The  fabric should be very thick and  stretchy arid without collars.  Babies have very short necks  and sleepers with collars are uncomfortable. There are many  fancy sleeper sets on the market  but for the same price, the plan-  ones are usually better quality.  Snap fasteners on sleepers  should be closely spaced, especially in the crotch area, and  should extend all the way to the  ankles. It is better if the snaps  have a loose, rather than a tight  hold, and set into a special band  of thick twill rather than just  The author of the article on  baby's requirements suggests  that you would be well advised  to stick to the absolute minimum  in any buying done before the  birth of your baby since you  don't know how big the baby will  be or what you will receive as  gifts. Many purchases can be  delayed for months and the delay will give you time to decide  your preferences and to spend  gradually rather than ruin your  budget.  The article is an attempt to  clarify the advantages and disadvantages of various choices  and to indicate which items are  necessary and which might be  considered frills. It covers the  basic necessities of clothing,  cribs, carriages, feeding and  bathing equipment and includes  a great deal of practical information for the about - to - be-  mother.

Mr. Granville Drake, local full time minister, had that  experience last week-end at the  semi-annual circuit assembly of  Jehovah's Witnesses held at the  Carson Graham High School in  North Vancouver.  His lecture was entitled Staying in Full Time Service. VThe  need for endurance in times of  declining faith cannot be over  emphasized," Mr. Drake said.  "Belief in God and the Bible is  today being assaulted on many  fronts. To have the knowledge  to defend the faith and the courage to do so requires diligent  Bible study and prayer to God.  This convention aided all who  attended including my family to  learn how to fortify faith."  Mr. Drake's qualifications  stem from training received in  the Theocratic Ministry school  of Jehovah's Witnesses and at  seminars held, regularly by the  Watch Tower Bible and Tract  Society, and from the experiences of 51 years as a working minister.  Mr. Drake was accompanied  to the convention by his wife,  Winifred. "Teaching begins1 at  home," he explained', "so we  take our wives and children with  us for training. Sharing together  in this way keeps up the lines of  communication that deter any  generation gap."  The highlight of the convention  was the attendance of 1,551 to  hear William Veenstra, district  supervisor for Jehovah's Witnesses, deliver the talk on Withstanding the Pressures of Our  Day.

I am a bookkeeper in business for myself. I have done a  great deal of work for a customer but he can't seem to pay me.  He has demanded his books and  I have refused to hand them to  him. He says there is no law  that says I can keep his books.  A. Nonsense. If by law he  means statute, he is correct as  far as this goes, there is no such  statute, but you have a common  law lien. There are many statutes dealing with liens on chattels, the Warehouseman's Lien  Act, the Woodsman's Lien Act,  the Thresher's Lien Act, the Cattle Lien Act, as well as the main  statute, the Mechanic's Lien Act.  There are also common law liens  which are not the subject of any  statute such as a solicitor's lien,  a stockbroker's lien, factor's *  lien, carrier's lien, innkeeper's  lien, etc. Don't give him the  books, till he pays you.

The  comprehensive proposal would  grant a substantial wage increase and, in addition, provides  continued cost-of-living protection, significant improvements in  pension benefits for both regular and early retirement and a  fully paid vacation holiday period from the day before Christmas through New Year's Day in  each year of the agreement.  A. G. Stapleton," director of  personnel, General Motors of  Canada, who made the proposal  to the UAW, said it is a sound  and realistic proposal under  present economic conditions. For  GM employees who are already  among the highest paid group in  ���:he country, 36.5 percent above  the average for all manufacturing, the proposal provides:  WAGES: 1970 ��� a IVz percent  increase   in   base   wage   rates,  ATTENTION BOWLERS  Ladies Tues.

This means a minimum increase of from 13 cents  to 22 cents per hour and a possible maximum increase of from  18 cents to 27 cents per hour.  1972 ��� an additional improvement factor wage increase of 11  to 20 cents; plus a second cost-  of-living allowance guaranteed  minimum increase of three cents  and a maximum of eight cents  per hour. The minimum increase  would be from 14 cents to 23  cents per hour while the maximum would be 19 cents to 28  cents per hour.  BENEFITS: An increase in the  basic pension benefit rate to  $6.75, $7.00 and $7.25 from the  present $5.50, $5.75 and $6.00, related to wage rates:. This  amounts to a 23 percent increase  in the monthly basic pension  benefit for the typical employee (at the car assembler classification rate).  Increased life insurance ranging from $7,500 to $14,500 (the  current range is $7,000 to $13,000)  for the car assembler insurance  coverage would be i$9,000, up  from the current $8,000. A special problem exists with respect  to the GM-UAW Canadian Supplemental Unemployment Benefit plan. Still in effect is an  agreement which related to this  problem. Further discussion is  needed with the union before a  specific proposal can be made.  Christmas Season Vacation:  By adding one new holiday in  the first year of the proposed  new agreement and scheduling a  floating holiday, the proposal  would p}rovide a continuous  Christmas vacation holiday period from-the day before Christmas through New Year's Day in  1970, 1971 and 1972. 7  The GM of Canada proposal to  the UAW also provides for sharing future increased contributions above the level for September 1970 for hospital, surgical, medical and drug expense-  coverage, and a revised hiring  wage rate schedule for new employees.
