 Pr o viri^ia 1 __ ibrkry ','���'  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 35, September 16, 1970.  10c per copy  O K given nine classrooms  Contract for construction of a  three-room addition to Elphinstone school science laboratories  at a cost of $130,644 was awarded Westward Construction company of Surrey.  The Westward tender was the  lowest of four received by the  school board. The other three  were Gulf Construction company  Powell River, $135,833; Bird  Construction company, Vancouver, $136,399 and Teck Construction company, Langley, $138,888.  The tender is $8,644 over Referendum 10 estimates which  were prepared in mid-1969 for  the May 1970 vote. Referendums  usually   contain   a   contingency  clause and Referendum 10 had  $13,000 earmarked anticipating  higher costs by the time work  started.  (On Saturday following the  board meeting a mailed press  release from the premier's office stated that the premier as  chairman of the treasury board  announced that approval had  today (Sept. 11) been given by  the treasury board to the department of education to call  tenders, for a six classroom addition to Sechelt Elementally  school at a cost of $143,000.  School officials say this amount  will be on the low side as estimates were compiled almost two  years ago.)  Thursday night's meeting of  the school board was informed  by Secretary-treasurer J. S.  Metzler that all now required  was approval of the tender by  Victoria  officials.  The new room added to Langdale school, now in use, which  was built by local sub-contractors and school district maintenance men under supervision of  R. J. E. Rutter, maintenance  supervisor, was regarded one of  the best in the school district.  The cost of the 1,056 square foot  room is expected to be below  the $18,073 allowed for this construction.

The firemen found charges for  installing fire phones in the  homes of firemen were much  more than the community could  afford. It was decided the cijtfr  zens band on radio would be  more suitable. 7  Pratt  ommg  Exceptional improvement in  education standards at Elphinstone Secondary school resulting in further accreditation up  to and including the 1972-73  school year, was reported to  Thursday night's meeting of the  school board.  The information came from official sources in Victoria department of education offices.  J. R. Meredith, assistant superintendent of instruction said  the accreditation committee noted exceptional improvement in  standards, judging from the results in school and provincial  examinations.  F. P. Leyirs, superintendent,  in congratulating the school  wrote the three year accredited  tion may be taken as an expres  sion of confidence that the  school can maintain acceptable  academic standards.  The average mark on 1969  provincial exams in mathematics was 16 percent above the  provincial average, in chemistry  14 percent above and physics  10 percent. School average  marks were also above provincial averages but the difference  is not so great. No indication  was found of over assessing  achievement or over recommending students. Results in the  January 1970 exams were equally good, Mr. Meredith found.  These two reports from Victoria came as the result ^6f the  provincial accreditation committee having reviewed the  standard of all schools' accredit-  (By STEVEN LEE)  Mayor; Wally Peterson outlined; the advantages-of amalgamation w-th [Gibsons to a meeting  of the West Gibsons Heights.  Ratepayers Association Thursday evening at the LePage home  on Pratt Road.  Mayor Peterson stated that  upon joining the village the tax-,  es of the residents of Pratt Rd.  and vicinity would stay the same  while water rates would be reduced considerably. The water  rates under the village of Gibsons would be $60 per year but  would drop to a maximum of  $42 per year upon amalgamation. The mayor also stressed  that a per. capita grant, not available for residents under the  Regional board, would be made  available if the residents should  join the village.  Mrs. B. Skellett, association  secretary, stated that a petition has gone out and it is* believed the 6Q|% approval by landowners has already been received.  Mr. Frank Wiest of the Regional' District board outlined  '* tfie^Lndirigs <6f^the Regional Dis*7  Strict'sSplannihg^^ comibiitt^'s^fi^.;;  nal meeting. Though not official  yet, the committee has come  up with a change in the mobile  homes bylaw. According to Mr.  West the bylaw will be changed  to allow mobile homes into residential zoned areas. Xvlobile  hOnies in these areas would have  to be removed from their wheels  and permanently fixed on NHA  approved foundations and would  have to comply with building  and sanitation regulations.  Mr. West said the planning  committee was considering zoning Pratt Road area as Residential 2 instead of rural holding because it felt there were  a good number of nice residential homes in the area and it felt  it did not want to tie the hands  of the village, should amalga-  tion take place, by leaving the  area rural holding.  A progress report on the water   system   indicated  that  the  Water liaison set up  j Aid. Charles Mandelkau was  named Gibsons council representative on the Regional District water committee at Monday night'si council meeting. Request for such a member was  put forth by the Regional District board so Gibsons council  would be better informed on Regional District water developments.  Anticipating expansion of water users in Chekwelp Reserve  area, just beyond Gibsons Cozy  Corner, council will look into  the possibility of an increased  flow of domestic water. This  would entail a larger water supply when the time comes for  improving the present setup.  The problem will be checked  further before action on making  a connection. This expansion  could follow the installation of  an emergency setup.  Mr. F. J. Wyngaert, Gibsons  merchant, who complained last  June of a dog killing some of his  poultry asked council to carry  out its proposal of paying him  for the loss of the poultry in  view of the fact the RCMP were  unable to trace the dog. Under  the provincial Sheep Protection  Act he was  able to press his  claim, which council recognized.  The need for a guard rail on  Skyline Drive which he regarded as a danger point was pointed out by Mr. W. McGowan who  lives on the water side of Skyline Drive. Aid. Ken Crosby,  roads chairman, will check on  its need.  The Provincial Building Inspector's Association suggested  by letter that there should be a  uniform building bylaw throughout the province. Mayor Wally  Peterson declared it made good  sense. Council will await a promised copy of the association's  bylaw so it can check it before  making up its mind.  Council and the Regional District board in the continuing  discussion on water for Pratt  Road have had further meetings and a formula has1 been  produced for aldermanic consideration. This will be studied  by council before making a  commitment.  Aid. Gerry Dixon reported a  sunken barge at the north side  of the Municipal wharf. Council will ascertain who is the  owner and get it removed.  new six inch line was ready^for  installation at- any time.7���-the  ;cli^rl%^h_^; ^i-eelt^bne^na^d1  laying of pipe should be completed by the end of the year.  The new line will extend from  the highway down Pratt road  definitely as far as Curtain Rd.  in its first phase. No new hookups to the' old line will be permitted until the six-inch line is  extended down the full length  of Pratt Rd. Hook-up price to  the new line, excluding those already on the old line in which  case there is no charge, will be  approximately $125, while water rates will be $5 per month  (no frontage charge) until am-  lagamation wiitJh Gibsons takes  place. The new line will not permit irrigation and users with  livestock will be metered for  their water use.  Gibsons has offered the Regional board use of the new  Pratt Road water line as a  means for future development.  It was the feeling of the association members that much progress has been achieved in the  last few months since they were  first told by the Regional District they would have to wait  five years for a new water line.  If nothing else, Gibsons and the  Regional District have been  brought closer together through  the problems of the Pratt Road  residents.   .  Geoff Higgs  accident victim  Geoffrey Richard Lewis Higgs  popularly known as Geoff Higgs,  a 33 year old marine lawyer and  son of Capt. and Mrs. W. York  Higgs of Gower Point road was  fatally injured Saturday morning when his car left the road  just beyond Gibsons1 Cozy Corner.  It is believed the accident occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday when he left friends to go  to his home at Soames Point.  RCMP were notified of the accident at 8:40 a.m. Saturday when  the accident was discovered:  Severe head injuries are believed to have caused death. An inquiry will be held.  *  *^3'>.:g  A non - refundable 50 cent  charge above the 50 cent pupil  locker fee at Elphinstone school  this year to cover vandalism  costs, put into effect by Principal T. G. Ellwood has been suspended While its validity is looked into.  The matter came before  Thursday night's meeting of the  school board through letters  from Bud and Celi'a Fisher and  Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Grose, objecting tov it and arguing that  taxes cover such cost.  Supt. R. R. Hanna said the  matter   should have   come   be-  Drug remands  John David Parker, John Brian Caldwell and Peter James  McKenna charged with trafficking in drugs have been arraigned for trial in Gibsons court.  Parker will be tried on Sept. 24  on a charge of trafficking in  marijuana; Caldwell will be  tried Nov. 3 on a charge of trafficking in LSD and McKenna  will appear on Sept. 24 on a  charge of trafficking in LSD and  marijuana.  All three were arrested as the  result of RCMP undercover operations.

A FAITHFUL READER  A recent visitor to the Coast  News office was Mrs. E. Kor-  hone of Keats Island, one of the  first subscribers in July 1945  for the Coast News. She has  continued to read the Coast  News right up to today, having  renewed her annual subscription.  fore the last school board meeting previous to its being put into effect. Through an oversight  it was left out.  Trustee John Hayes, Sechelt,  felt the dollar charge was not  out of line and that there could  be a pro-rata rebate at the end  of the year based on a left-over  surplus after vandalism costs  had been set.  Secretary-treasurer J. S. Metzler said it was common practice in a good many schools  throughout the province. Trustee D. Ganshorn, Gibsons rural,  was of the opinion that under  the School Act it was not legal.  Trustee Mrs. A. Labonte, Gibsons, thought the vandalism  problem would come closer to  students if the damage cost was  collected from the students and  not taxpayers. Trustee W. Malcolm, Pender Harbour felt the  principal was trying to do something but not in the right way.  Trustee B Mulligan, Gibsons  rural, was of the opinion Mr.  Ellwood should have some direction from the board on this  situation.  It was also decided that the  board should have a policy requiring principals to obtain approval of the board before raising funds for any purpose other  than school purposes.  A charge of $2 on kindergarten books was also discussed as  some complaints had been heard  verbally. Both matters will be  checked by Supt. Hanna who  will report to the next meeting.  Chamber fo meet  The first fall meeting of Gibsons and District Chamber of  Commerce will take place Monday night of next week at Cedars Inn and Dick Blakeman,  president, anticipates a good  crowd. The opening program  usually produces some items of  general interest and helps lay  the groundwork for future meetings.  As there was considerable interest in the tourism operation  during the summer it is expected, there will be some comment  and hopes for next summer.  ed for one year.  School trustees were pleased  with the information contained  in the two letters and Supt. R.  R. Hanna commented that apparently "we have done something for the schools."  Accreditation for a school  means that pupils do not have  to write year end exams. They  can be passed on their school  year record.

Driftwood play  for October  The play will be the thing this  year on the Sunshine Coast. The  award winning Driftwood Players held an organizational meeting Monday and laid plans for  a series of productions this  year.  Mrs. Eileen Glassford, president of the club, announced that  the players are planning a season that will include a rollicking farce, See How They Run  by Philip King. The large cast  plan to present this in October.  A Christmas and a spring production are also planned. In addition to these, the club will  have weekly play readings on  Sunday afternoons'. The first  reading will be at the home of  Mrs. Eileen Glassford, 1732  Marine Drive.  To correct a mistake in last  week's issue when John Burnside was named director of  Driftwood Players' winning play  The Lovers by Pinter, it should  be revised to read that George  Matthews was the director. Mr.  Matthews has now been named  director for the three act farce-  See How They Run, for presentation in October.  imiiiiiiuiunnumttiiuuHiuiuHm��ttmmnn  $100 REWARD OFFERED  Coast Cablevision is offering  a reward of $100 for information  leading to the arrest of anyone  damaging its equipment.

Pleasant and helpful  "From both your data on the January and June school and  provincial examinations and the data on school results as compared with provincial averages, it is evident that academic standards in Elphinstone Secondary School are very good."  This is a judgment by the provincial superintendent of education. It should be pleasant information to parents with teenagers'  attending El_>hinstone school. It may not please others who have in  the past expressed their views that all was not well.  Apparently the provincial superintendent's feelings towards  Elphinstone based on provincial averages pleases him. So much  so that the accreditation committee has advised the school board  that Elphinstone school will operate as an accredited school for  the next three school years, taking them to the end of the school  year in 1973. Accrediting a school means that the pupils do not  have to write year-end exams. They can be passed to a higher  grade based on their year's performance.  This should be satisfying news to the school trustees who have  had a few years of varied education and other hubbubs which)  have been unsettling not only to school trustees, teachers and pupils but also the public.  Perhaps educational affairs now might coast along in smoother  waters. We could all do with a more peaceful outlook in educational affairs. The government is making things tough enough without  trustees having to about face and meet other disturbances.  Union has troubles  The striking Pulp and Paper Workers Union of Canada, holding out for better terms after the Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill  Workers international union and United Papermakers have reached a settlement without a strike, is apparently running into troubles. Eight mills are involved in the strike and according to a vote  tabulated this weekend seven of the eight want to continue the!  strike with one voting against.  While the PPWC over the weekend tabulated the results of ai  vote which revealed the 4,000 members voted 66.9 percent to continue the strike, Prince George union voted 51 percent in favor of  accepting the terms offered.  'Under the heading The Labor Scene on this' page, is a letter  written by a former resident of this area in which his strong views  are revealed. There were also three other letters in the Prince  George Citizen equally as strong against continuing the strike, now  in its eighth week. ,  Under the heading PPWC facing mutiny, one letter reads: i  "The eventual outcome of this strike has to be.the members'  of the PPWC looking back on these two months and realizing that  the International didn't go on strike and got the same increase in  wages as the PPWC (even if the wage increase isn't exactly the  same, the overall contract including fringe benefits will be virtually identical)  thereby weakening the PPWC to the point where  they are in danger of being decertified. They are in danger of, &  mutiny now, whether they realize it or not. On the other hand the  PPWC can admit it made a mistake, go back to work, try to nego-<  tiate a fair contract and try to regain the5 respect of its very disappointed members.'"  An editorial in the Prince George Citizen after the international unions had settled for a 22.5 percent wage increase in a new  three-year contract said:  "Members of the Canadion union have undoubtedly proved that  they have courage and determination by prolonging the strike}.  There is now the basis for a realistic contract offered to them by  the settlement which the international union has already accepted.  "We trust that the union's leaders will be quick to realize that  bargaining is not a matter of bravado but of dollars and cents. It  is time to end a strike which has accomplished nothing but the loss  of two months' pay to the union membership."  The PPWC has had a stormy career even in this area and it  now looks as though it is facing serious trouble in the Princei  George area and quite likely some other areas as well, in spite of  the vote to continue the strike.  Vancouver hallucinations  For one of the newspaper fraternity to accuse another member with hallucinatory tendencies in these days of hallucinatory  drugs might not be wise. However Mr. Parton of the Vancouver  Province wrote the following in the Sept. 9 issue:  ? "Up in Rainy River valley near Port Mellon, there was a forest fire ��� about 60 acres. It drove out about a thousand hippies  who are living there.  "And did you hear about Elphinstone Mountain? There's a  bunch of weirdos practicing witchcraft up there. Anytime you're  out for a hike you might come across a raven with a nail through  its heart or something like that."  Well, information gathered by the Coast News from direct  sources reveals the fire was 160 acres in a box canyon with steep  sides and NO hippies were evident at any time. This report comes  direct from the fire crews.  The so-called witchcraft concerns an old crow nailed to a post  which forest rangers discovered in the fall of 1969 when the small  ski lodge burned down. Crows have been used before as scare-i  crows!  The Province's publisher should be wary of such tripe appearing in the columns of his paper. That space could be used fan*  something far less hallucinatory.  &&&#*&$  "Would you believe it if I told you my hand got cold?"  The Labor scene  The following is a letter from  the Prince George Citizen written by Chris Johnson who formerly lived on Port Mellon high  way and worked at the mill:  Dear Sir: There are other reasons for the strike in half of the  B.C. pulp mills; besides inflation,  high interest rates and industry  profits.  The large increases won by  construction workers for work  no more difficult or skilled than  that of the maintenance tradesmen causes a lot of envy.  Every union wants to do its  own negotiatiing and the PPWC  has done little. The extreme example was in 1966, when the  wlages issue was settled by the  Nemetz report for the IWA and  the rest of the agreement was  negotiated by the Pulp Sulphite  (IBPS&PMW) and, through a  conciliation officer, given to the  PPWC:  They did a little better in the  1968 negotiations but the wage  pattern was set by the Steel-  workers, a vacation improvement by the IWA and most of  the fringe benefits were negotiated first by the Pulp Sulphite.  The results of this frustration  was a resolve by the PPWC to  adopt a tough attitude this year.  With the wage issue usually  set by other unions, the pulp  unions should sit tight and concentrate on the other issues.  The IWA and the Pulp Sulphite  recognized that to defy the government and go on strike could  be disastrous. The union leaders remember that the Bennett  government was elected in spite  of strong union opposition and  acts like its majority was 90  percent.  The rivalry between, the Pulp  Sulphite and the PPWC only ag  gravated the problem because  of the fear of the PPWC that  they would end up in an inferior  contract. This is why they would  rarely finalize a contract item  until after the Pulp Sulphite had.  The rivalry is so silly that  some of the Local 9 executive  were boasting that they were  going to go on strike first ��� two  hours before the Pulp Sulphite!  Both unions were going on  strike on July 24, but the government appointed a mediator  for each. The PPWC executive  illegally ignored the law and  went on strike. The Pulp Sulphite called off their strike and  resumed bargaini!ng.  The Pulp Sulphite union was  just as frustrated but they recognized the realities of a bad  situation. One of the differences  between the two unions is that  the wage delegates and senior  local union officers of the Pulp  Sulphite are more experienced  with a tradition of collective  bargaining as long as there is  a. chance of reaching an adequate settlement.  Another reason many members voted for a strike was that  they were led to believe that the  ,eompanies would make another  offer before the strike deadline.  A strike must be the last resort, with no other alternative.  Union leaders must use whatever brains they were given, not  their emotions: This has been a  useless strike and a further continuation of it will only bring  more hardship to us. 7  If enough Local 9 members  agree that.this is a foolish and  unnecessary strike they should  show their feelings in the correct way when they vote.  ���Chris Johnson  Local 9, P.P.W.C.

BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa  A very difficult period for  flowering plants is from the time  the summer phlox starts to fade  in mid-August and, when most  of the lilies have ceased flowering, until mid-September just before most outdoor 'mums and  perennial asters have reached  their peak.  Among the plants that compliment the early autumn landscape are the autumn crocuses  or hardy colchicums. Colchicums  have been flourishing in gardens  for centuries. Native to Asia Minor and Europe, they are a common sight in English gardens  and in many Canadian ones as  well, for they are reliably hardy  at Ottawa and possibly much  farther north.  Autumn crocus is one of the  most popularly used common  names, although a very confusing one because the flowers do  resemble those of the true crocuses, and there are true crocuses that flower in the fall.  Meadow Saffron is another common name which is used often  in England and refers to the way  the plant flowers in meadows in  its native land.  To tell the differences between  the crocus and the colchicum  you must count the stamens, for  the colchicums have six and the  crocuses three. The leaves of the  colchicum are very large whereas those of the crocus are small  and strap-like.     .v  ������  The colchicums are members  of the lily family and grow from  irregular-shaped, rather rough  looking corm ��� quite different  from the neat uniform shape of  f o r  the true crocus. They are usually planted at the end of August to mid-September. Right now  they are still abundant in some  of the garden centers.  Plant them so that the corms  are covered with at least two  inches of soil. If planted less  deeply they will be affected by  winter. They seem to do well in  shade or in full sun. When planting them in clumps in the border, keep them back far enough  so that they will not appear out  of place in spring, for the foliage they produce is large and  lush and can easily overpower  more refined plants and crowd  them out of the garden. Colchicums must be allowed to die  down naturally if you want a  good show of bloom in the fall.  Colchicums have long been  recommended for medicinal purposes. The old herbalists, Gerard and Parkinson, both prescribed them for the treatment  of gout, sciatica and similar ailments. Even today they have an  economic use. The corms are  collected, sliced and dried during the summer and used in  medical practice for their cathartic and emetic properties.  .- The value of the colchicum  for the flower border is obvious,  although it doesn't have a wide  color range; violet, lilac, rose,  purple and white or various combinations and hues are available. The soft colors are pleasing and blend well with the early  autumn coloration of the surrounding plants.  Buy some of these' fascinating  bulbs and plant them right away.  You will be more than satisfied  with their fall display and the  chances are you will get this effect almost as soon as you plant  them.  N.

Teachers' Federation  Elphinstone Auditorium  EVERYBODY WELCOME  fAJHiCN NEW/  This season, even more so  than last year, the dress and  coat ensemble will be a most  important look. In fact, it will  be a fashion must. Especially so  in herringbone trimmed with solid touches. Foremost colors for  Fall will be rust and the blue-  greens.  Look for great emphasis on  quilted treatments, rather than  smooth suede all the. way. Detailed with fake fun-fur collars,  or attached hoods. Deep pile  and quilt linings will both score.  Burgundy,   arctic   blue,   honey  beige are the important suede  colors.  The modified, not extreme,  minis will make the fashion  news.  The kilt will be in a class by  itself this year. Although the  conventional plaids will still be  around the look in kilts they'll  be after will be done in off-best  fashions ��� with windowpane  viewing well worth a second  look.  Pleats will be plentiful ��� as  will tab fly fronts, flat panel  fronts ��� and belts making a  real comeback.

Rats increase  Improvement in village garbage situation was discussed at  Monday night's meeting of Gibsons council following complaints that dogs are delving into garbage awaiting collection.  Aid. Ken Goddard felt that  compulsory garbage collections  might be the answer but Mayor  Wally Peterson felt it would be  too expensive. Aid Goddard  thought the time was approaching when council should be looking into  compulsory  collection.  However council decided an  advertised warning would suffice for the time being.  It was also reported that the  rat situation at the gajrbage  dump was becoming serious and  the Regional District board  which had control over the dump  should be informed that rats  were becoming a menace.

ISABEL DAWSON)  During the past month, I have  been viisiting Britain and Ireland, looking at many types of  facilities for people, both young  and old, and sponsored by three  levels of government.  It was interesting to me to visit other countries and take part  in another way of life. I have  affectionate memories of the  kindness of the people I met,  but I must admit to a feeling  of nostalgia when, on the return  trip, the plane touched down at  Winnipeg and I knew I was back  on Canadian soil.  ...-. Those I met with in an official capacity, while visiting senior citizens homes and handicapped children's centres, were  most willing to discuss their facilities and to show me what was  being done in their areas of  work.  One aspect of the various facilities provided for the handicapped and disturbed child was  particularly interesting to me  ��� the degree of co-operation ber  tween industry, unions and government in planning and setting  up remunerative programs for  those unable to take part in the  normal work-a-day world. The  degree of involvement in the  handicapped centres respectfully commanded any attention, as  I very quickly realized the  amount of time, effort and patience involved on the part of  all agencies in order to establish the handicapped and disturbed child and young adult as  a contributing member of society in as much as he is able to  be so.  People on the whole, both in  England and Ireland were very  friendly and helpful, in particular the London policemen, who  must surely be the most patient  men in the world. Like any tourist, I resorted to inquiring of  them the way to or from the  various places of interest I want  ed to visit and their unfailing  courtesy very often was the  bright spot in the day.  Everywhere I went, I found  .people interested in coming to  Canada or learning "ofour way  of life and one point of my whole  trip was the fact that I had to  keep correcting the impression  that I was an American. Very  few people differentiate between Canadians and Americans  and the popular impression, especially in certain parts of Ireland is that all Canadians and  Americans are very wealthy.  One aspect of the Irish way  of life which was quite different  to what I am used to here in  Canada was the complete lack  of regard for time. On one occasion I visited the city of Lon  donderry where I had three appointments that day.  Although I arrived promptly  on time for the first appointment, which was to visit council housing projects and senior  citizens homes, we didn't get  under way for about half an  hour and once we got going, we  just kept on and on.  My next appointment was  scheduled for 2:30 in the afternoon and as time went on I  realized I was going to be late  for it. The people in charge of  Coast News, Sept. 17, 1970.       5  the tour airily waved their  handstand said, "Ob it doesn't  matter ��� they know you are  coming and they will be expecting you when you get there."

Automobile Association reminds motorists, as thousands  of school children return to their  classrooms following summer va.  cation.  The BCAA urged motorists to  be especially alert at the street  crossings and to watch for young  sters who may dart into the  street from between parked cars  . When driving around schools,  it is important to have your car  under strict control at all times.  Daydreaming or any other kind  of distraction is particularly dangerous in these areas.

Open school  area, problem  Gibsons Elementary school  open area is having troubles to  the point where the school board  in considering a smaller area  for the new Sechelt school will  make the area more flexible.  This is the summation of a  discussion by school trustees at  Thursday night's meetihg last  week. The matter was brought  into the open when Supt. R. ;R.  Hanna placed before the board  the proposal to extend extra  time alloted to this room by  Vice-Principal J. B. Ayris to the  end of September hoping that  the situation shows improvement. This was approved.  The type of teaching required  for the open area method is  more demanding on teachers  than normal and some teachers prefer to avoid tackling such  a classroom. It is more demanding, Mr. Hanna reported, as  there is considerable grouping  and regrouping youngsters to  get them to fit in.  This will be the second year of  open area teaching at Gibsons  and it has presented its problems, according to Mr. Hanna.  For this reason the board was  of the opinion it would be better  not to make the future Sechelt  open area classroom as rigid as  the one at Gibsons.

"Consumers and housewives," says  Mrs. Plumptre, "surrounded by the  opportunities offered by new and  improved products, need all the help  that advertising���honest, informative, imaginative advertising���can  offer.  "They need more knowledge about  the qualities of the goods' they are  buying, and in a form that helps  them to make sensible choices between one product and another.  "Much advertising does this, but  much does not. All too often advertising obscures the real qualities  of the product, while appealing to  strong but largely irrelevant motives,  such as vanity, cupidity and sex. A  product that has been sold on the  basis that consumers are morons is  unlikely to command continuing  consumer respect.  "The advertising industry has a  great opportunity and a great responsibility to guide advertising TOWARDS forms where interests of  producers and consumers coincide ���  and A WA Y from forms where they  are in conflict."

Canadian Advertising Advisory Board: we work for better advertising Coast News, Sept. 16, 1970: 77 7  Point of law  SUNSHINE COAST DIRECTORY  (By   a  Practicing Lawyer)  This week we will xleai with  some common questions on the  lawyer and client relationship in  criminal cases.  Q. I got charged with car  theft and went to a good lawyer  but I didn't think he believed in  my innocence, so I changed lawyers. Someone told me I didn't  need to change because the first  lawyer would have put up a  good fight anyway. Is this right?  I want a lawyer who believes in  his case. Wouldn't he flight harder if he believes his client?  , A. This would be a poor sort  of .lawyer. The law states that  everyone is presumed innocent  till proven guilty i��� .therefore^  he is innocent, in a legal seriste  till the opposite is proved. If  you are talking about moral or  ethical guilt, a client may be, in  this- sense, guilty, tout this lias  nothing to do with the law and  lawyers don't waste time considering this aspect of the case.  It is the lawyer's duty to fight  as hard as he can for all his  clients and his personal belief  (if any) in his client's ethical pr  moral position is immaterial.  Q. How can honest lawyers  defend people they know are  guilty? i:  A. They don't. Everyone  charged with a criminal offence .  is presumed innocent��� see the  previous question and answer.  We understand the question but  we believe it implies a confusion  between legal guilt and moral  guilt. If it was a requirement of  our law that a lawyer had to believe in his client's moral innocence before undertaking his  defence, this would still be unfair as the client may seem to  be morally guilty to his lawyer  but may actually be morally innocent. It is what the judge or  jury thinks that counts ��� not  what the lawyer thinks.  Q. Will a lawyer defend a  client who- tells him he is guilty?   ' ���-'  A. Of course.

A person accused of  a crime may, and often does,  have a number of valid defences of which he is unaware,  for example, drunkeness or lack  of a guilty intention. In any event he is innocent legally till the  opposite is proved. See the first  question and answer.  Q. What happens iin a criminal case if a lawyer doesn't believe his client?  A. The lawyer has hO belief  or disbelief, as such, in his client's version of events. It is  what the judge or jury are likely to believe that is important.  The lawyer will proceed oh the  basis of the facts as given to  him by his client. If, as often  happens, the client's version  sounds very unlikely, the lawyer  may politely point out that, under cross examination by an experienced prosecutor, the judge  or jury may not believe the  client. If after this, the client  insists that the facts are true  the lawyer's hands are tied.  About all he can do is advise  the client not to testify. See the  next question and answer. The  moral is tell your lawyer the  whole truth.  Q. What happens when a client tells his lawyer that the story  he proposes to give in evidence  at the trial is untrue. Will the  lawyer defend him?  A. Yes ��� but a lawyer cannot, by law, knowingly allow his  client to give false testimony.  In this case, the defence will  take the form of the lawyer attempting to find some flaw or  doubt in the prosecution's case,  without the accused testifying.  The accused can't be compelled  to testify. If the prosecutor  can't prove his case against the  accused, the client is not guilty  in a legal sense, although, of  course, he may be ever so guilty in a moral sense but this is  no concern of the courts.  DISCUSS CONTROL BYLAW  A proposed public gathering  control bylaw was discussed by  members of the Regional district board at its last meeting  and Director Norman Watson of  Sechelt suggested a. simple bylaw limiting the number of  people in a gathering to 500. He  added the enforcement of other  provincial regulations would be  necessary including the health,  department) highways and the  RCMP.

Night classes  The school board is preparing  its continuing adult education  program, generally termed night  school, for presentation shortly,  Supt. R. R. Hanna announced at  last week's meeting of the  board. Last year there were 23  classes with close to 300 persons taking part.  This year's program may operate similar to that of last  year with a co-ordinator for the  south end of the district and another for the north. Last year's  program finished with a balance  of $112 after expenses.  The superintendent expects to  have the announcement of class-,  es advertised just as soon as coordinators have been selected.

Elementary children have to  walk from the Pratt Road and  Gower Point Road to the Elementary school which is a distance far too great for our wet  climate.  The parents in this area offered to pay the bus fare for a  return trip but were turned down  by the school board and Sechelt  Motor Transport company. Yet  a tfus can go down into the Village of Gibsons and pick up the  children in that area.  You would think one of the  buses could make a second trip  back in the morning to pick up  these elementary children plus  ihigh school pupils and charge  the rate that the Gibsons village  children pay or double if necessary.  The children should be able  to get to school in a dry condition if possible as there are inadequate facilities available for  them to dry their clothes properly. This bus would only have  to run in the morning. The children could walk ihome at the  end of the day.  How many parents are willing  to sign a petition or keep your  children away from school on a  wet day until our local school  board and bus company can  make a sensible decision.  ���G. G. Thatcher,  Gower Point Road.  SIX CENT STAMP  On Nov. 4 Sir Donald Alexander Smith, a man whose perseverance was vital to the completion of a promised ribbon of  steel linking Canadian confederation, will be the subject of a  six cent commemorative stamp  marking the 150th anniversary  of his birth in Scotland. He was  raised to the peerage as Baron  Strathcona and Mount Royal in  1897 while serving as Canadian  High Commissioner to Great  Britain, a position he held until  his death in 1914.  Establishment of a broad Ain-  terrdepartmental policy forfu-  ture development of British Columbia's natural resources is1 announced by the Hon. Ray Williston, chairman of the provincial  Land Use committee. Committee members include the ministers of lands, forests and water  resources; agripulture; mines  and petroleum resources; municipal affairs; and recreation and  conservation.  The overall impact of fine  policy will be to set priorities in  land use for such commitments  as forestry, mining, agriculture,  and park development, along  with control of side effects such  as urban sprawl and ribbon development along highways.!  This formalizes a committee  structure set up to ensure that  progress and the public interest  are equally served through a  formal system of inter-departmental liaison and exchange of  information.  The aim of the new policy is  to enable the development of  land in British Columbia for social betterment and economic  growth, consistent with protec  tion, of .the ecological balance-of  the environment. The scientific  land inventory maps now being  prepared under ARDA Canada  Land'Inventory will be used as  a starting point in developing  land-use decisions.  . Adoption of the policy by the  land use committee followed recommendations made by the  technical land use committee  which based its' advice on the  findings of a number of studies  carried out over the past half-  year. _  NEW WATER PROPOSAL  A suggestion that the school  board should sign a petition ito  join the Irvines Landing water  board received ajpproval of the  school board at its meeting last  week. The petition was outlined  in a letter from C. A. Fair who  is seeking incorporation of <a  water board for that area. He  signified in his letter that the  water board! would be turned  oyer to the Regional District water system whenever required at  no cost to the district board.
