He died later in  a  Vancouver-'  nospital to where he was flown.  The accident occurred Saturday afternoon and men working!  with the Robert Christopher Logging company reached the fal-.;;  leri lad and conveyed him to  where he could be transported  by plane. -  RCMP investigated and it is  likely  an inquiry  only  will be  made into the cause of the accident.  Entertainment  TWILIGHT THEATRE  Sunnycrest ��� Gibsons  886-2827���Show starts 8 p.m.  See' Coming: Events  Classified Column  Torn Doi, skipper of the Salmon Trails, a 40 ft. fishbbat, en  route home to Steveston, found  himself in high wind too close  to shore near Chaster Creek,  Gower Point, last Saturday. The  result was his craft was holed  when it.struck a rock.  The vessel was. beached and  Sunday morning local people  assisted him in getting his craft  on even keel and patched the  holes near the bow, above the  waterline. With high tide Sunday  evening, aided by the Martin  Higgs tug it was refloated.  motion  Gibsons council found Tuesday night it had no direct power to issue a permit for a business to operate ori federal government property without federal permission.  /The issue.; arose over granting  the approval' at the last council  Triieeting for Tiki Dog to operate  a food concession on the wharf.  As a result Douglas Smith of the  ViUageiStore and::Bill Youdell of  TtCbasfr^nri-raise^^ in  opposition' at'^fll^cdiiincjl:,.:ineet^  \mg.. '������y-'-':r::''':\Ky'':\i/^:-;:i--.  Mr. Smith urged^a more realistic attitude. H one. business  opens there, others will follow.  There would be infrequent operation which would riot be satisfactory.  Mr. Youdell argued that because one restaurant did not  care whether Tiki Dog opened  or not it did not mean, all restaurants thought the same way.  He was opposed to council's earlier approval and commented  the local merchants stay here  all winter while Tiki Dog departs. 7    '  As a result of discussion in  which it was revealed federal  department approval was1 needed, council rescinded the last  meetings' approval motion and  tabled the application pending  further .information from the'  federal department of public  works.        .  Regarding themselves as two  laps behind, based on previous  requests, council decided to answer a letter from the department of highways seeking estimates on secondary road estimates for 1971, be resubmitting  previous years estimates in the  hope they might catch up.  ��� _  If you intend to participate in  Gibsons Firemen Water Sports  big swim from Keats Island to  the municipal beach Sunday,  you'd better register at Gibsons  Barber shop on Marine Drive  where Aid. perry Dixon will record names.  This swim won by Brian  Thicke of West Vancouver, three  years in a row is drawing larger fields and it is expected there  will be keener competition for  Mr. Thicke this year.  There will be 13 or 14 events  taking in swim races for youngsters up to 147 a YMCA war canoe event, rowboat races, log  rolling with $50 in prizes and  boat jousting, also with cash  awards.  One of the big events of the  afternoon will be tugboat facing  and boom boat competition  which could be a surprisingly  good show.  He was  lucky  enough "to be  beached on the only sandy area  on that part of the shore at the  Vernon's- Bonniebrook Camp and:  Trailer Park. It was a struggle'  to get the boat under control in.:  the high waves.. Among the res-���  cuers were Bud Fisher,  Errol%  Flummerfelt,   Jack   Warn   andt  Bud Jones. Mr.. Fisher in his Sil-7  ver Streak aluminum boat and ���  Jack Warn in a kayak also tried  to get a line aboard. Eventually  through Air Sea Rescue and the  RCMP Martin Higgs and his tug,  were called out at 2 a.m. but the:  battle to get a line aboard was  still tough. Eventually they got  the boat beached at the Vernon  ramp. ���-.'���'  After  refloating   Sunday   the  craft was towed by Martin Higgs)  to Gibsons harbor where it was ���  rechecked  and   them  taken   to \  Steveston at about 2 a.m. ^XXx. ���{  Last Thursday morning  Mr.  and Mrs. Bob Warwick in their  expensively equipped launch  struck a deadhead off the southern sector of Bowen Island.  They managed to get to a rocky  shore and off the boat before it  sank.  With them they had a, small  dog and the search for help resulted, toy the instinct of the dog  in finding a path which led to  human habitation.  They obtained transportation  to Gibsons where they put up at  Sunnycrest Motel and arranged  with John Smith of Smitty's Marina to salvage the craft which  contained about $5,000 or more  of electrical navigation equipment. John found the craft about  20 feet under water. Diving, he  manageed to get a line hooked  on and finding enough floatation  iri it, towed it to Gibsons where  it was patched up and later taken to Fisherman's Cove marina.  Total damage was reported in  the $7,000 bracket.  With the bank advancing another$250,000 and the easing of  the general strike situation the  Regional District board feels it  cari go ahead somewhat faster  with its water distribution policy.    7 ���  The 1,000,000 water reservoir  was ready for facing with, cement when the building strike  stopped all work. Board secretary Charles Gooding informed  the board in his report that construction of the reservoir is proceeding. He added there are applications now on file to tie on  the new lines. '  Mr. Gooding reported there  were now 686 users, 147 in Davis  Bay area, 389 at Sechelt and 150  in West Howe Sound area. Expected income for this year was  estimated at $62,954 with income  to date at $29,462 which he said  was $10,000 behind estimated income due to strike interference.  Following the mailing of water  bills there were a great number  of enquiries concerning the system mostly from out of towners.  This situation has eased and  most of the minor problems  cleared up.; The anticipated difficulties are occurring with  changes in ownership but it is  hoped that these will be removed if and when the provincial  government produces the list for  voters  rolls  and the  means to  keep them up to date.  Complaints that the charges  levied through the land tax are  on the high side will be investigated by the finance and water  committee members; There were  nine letters from Roberts Creek  area residents for the committee  to check.  The water committee will look  over the Fiedler Bros, quotation  on the Pratt Rd. pipe line. Their  letter stressed that while they  could not coriipete with Vancouver contractors they were offering an estimate anyway.  Additional funds are expected  to help out Chaster road well  problem and also the Gower  Point section. Pratt road for the  time being is held in abeyance  but its prospects brighten if an  arrangement can be made \tith  Gibsons.  Director Frank West in checking water system financing said  it would require about $122,000 a  year on a 25 year basis to pay  off the $1,500,000 loan and on a  30 year basis about $116,000 a  year. (The 25 year basis would  cost roughly $400,000 less).  Mr. West cited the case of a  land owner using well water in  a' piped area who was getting  the benefit of cheaper fire insurance plus fire protection. This  making the water user carry the  load contained something which  was basically wrong, he added.  Courts to decide  Upon advice of the executive  committee the Regional District  board at its meeting Friday of  last week decided to avoid making decisions covering prosecutions under, bylaws.  I The decision was taken after  ' the executive board met with legal counsel Bruce Emerson following the technical dismissal  of a bylaw charge because the  bylaw presented to the court  did riot contain the imprint of  government authorization. He  said this would not occur again.  He proposed that the building  bylaw should contain a stop  work clause. He explained that  the regional board would not be  liable for damages except in the  case . of vexatious charges. Regional districts and municipalities are protected under the Municipal act.  The committee on reporting to  the board"said it was of the opinion it was up to the courts to  say whether a bylaw had been  broken and not up to the board  to make any decision. If an officer felt the charge should go  to court, the board would not interfere. It the board decided on  a course of action it could become liable.  The build:ng inspector was  urged by the board to keep a  closely detailed summary of  events when dealing with customers.  opens  The stage is all set for open-  . ing Gibsons second Sea Caval-  cale at 3 p.m. Friday on the  Municipal wharf to be followed  by a Kin^-20 pancake supper at  5,and a Kin-20 dance at Elphinstone school plus a Legion dance  in the Legion Hall. Both events  start at 9 p.m.    .   *  The big event Saturday will be  the TMiss Sea Cavalcade contest  on a platform on the wharf.. Entrants are Linda Zabo, Fire Department; Wilma Mandelkau,  Golf Club; Linda Jackson, Kin-  20 club; Eileen McKenzie, Legion 109; Denise Littlejohn, Kiwanis; Denise Quarry, Chamber  of Commerce; Colleen Husby,  Timber Trails; Diane Bergen,  Sunnycrest Plaza; Georgette  Macklam, Roberts Creek Fire  Department, and Linda Hensch,  Recreation Centre.  The public is requested to take  note that for the Saturday bike  race starting at 2:15 p.m. there  will be traffic blocks on the Gower Point Road, Dougal Road,  Headlands and Franklin Roads  during the 35 mile bike race  which means the area mentioned will be traversed 28 times..  Earlier Saturday there will be  a war of the hoses at Sunnycrest  Plaza followed by a parade  starting at 11:30 a.m. A demolition derby is planned in vicinity  of the former I & S warehouse  on the highway starting at 5 p.m.  Sunday is the big day with the  Firemen's Sports which has its  own program of events for young  and old. To keep yourself posted  on times and events, particularly the tug boat and sidewinder  events, programs will be available in local stores.  wwpw^  Saturday afternoon's Salvation  Army band camp concert with  bands under direction of Major  Norman Bearcroft, national music director and staff bandmaster, celebrated the camp's 21st  annual event.  Two band groups, junior from  9 to 12 years of age numbering  75 and the seniors, from 13 to 18  years, are taking  part in this  years' music camps. The junior  bands played Saturday and the  seniors will be at camp from  August 30 to Sept. 6. Camp Commandant Major William KerrK  commenting on the music camps-  said an increased appreciation;  was being shown in music.  Major Bearcroft is highly commended as a leader. He is a Fellow of Trinity College iri London,  England. !  Victoria okays  hospital start  Permission has been given to  award the contract for space to  accommodate 35 beds at St.  Mary's Hospital, Hon. Isabel  Dawson has-< announced.  The contract for $599,044 has  been awarded the Bird Construction Company of Vancouver to  provide space for 22 extended  care beds and 13 acute care  beds.  The hospital now has 35 beds  and 35 more will bring the total  to 70. Cost of the original hospital and the addition plus the  nurses' residence will be $1,521.-  044.  Approval for construction of  the present hospital was , announced by Hon. Eric Martin,  then minister of health, on July  15. 1960. The approval in principal was for St. Mary's Hospital  to replace the existing hospital  at Garden Bay.  The move to obtain a hospital  closer to the centres of population was launched on Feb. 17,  1959 at a public meeting in Sechelt's Legion Hall. Chairman  of the meeting was Harvev  Hubbs.  The tenth meeting of the group  set up by St. Mary's Hospital society-was held in December 1959  in the B.C. Electric office in  Sechelt to discuss a brief of  close to 50 pages prepared by  the committee to be presented  to Minister Eric Martin. He com  plimented the committee on the  scope of their brief.  In the meantime plans were  started for organizing of a hospital improvement district to arrange financing of the proposed  hospital.  A climax was reached when  taxpayers were given a chance  by plebiscite to vote on a hospital improvement district on Dec.  12, 1960. The vote was 1,477 in  favor to 205 against with 27  spoiled ballots. It was regarded  as a particularly heavy vote.  With this authority the committee appointed to obtain a  new hospital had * reasonably  smooth sailing up to the time of  the opening of the new hospital  on Dec. 2, 1964, after six years  of endeavor by members of the  various committees which operated back as far as the original meeting Feb. 17, 1959.  When the hospital was officially opened the Sechelt Indian  band was officially thanked for  its donation of the land occupied by the hospital. Chief Alfie  August was presented with a  scroll signifying what the Indian  .band had done for the residents  of the Sunshine Coast.  Total cost of the original 35  bed hospital plus the nurses residence was $932,000 with the provincial government providing  $466,000 of that amount and the  federal government $113,000.

Coast News advice to SCEPS organization on the front page of  last week's paper that it look after its own interests in placing its  arguments before the public without having to be pressured, was  well-intentioned. It was written for the purpose of making the organization more alert to present day methods of protecting itself.  If the contents of the Hind-Smith letter had been received in  time to use in the previous week's edition along with the Gibsons;  council side of the issue, it would have been used in its entirety^.  As pointed out in the editor's explanation, the Coast News receives considerable publicity from Vancouver's SPEC, without having to ask for it. Surely the local organization can protect itself by  providing its side of a hearing held in Victoria and which the editor  of this paper did not have the time to attend.  The Coast News is published with the idea of helping people,  helping them to have their side of their case presented. However*  the organization must provide the material. This is done so that  any organization will not have to put up with what the editor thinks  is their side of the argument. What the editor may thirik of the  argument will appear in the editorial column and not in the news  columns.  Now would be the time also for other organizations to look into  their own publicity problems. For example the editor sits in on  many public meetings, hears comments on something or other and  does his best to correlate the information he had heard into intelligible understanding.  This is not always easy. Members of councils and boards have  before them a full report on what they are discussing. Repoirtersi  hear what sometimes can be described as mumblings by speakers  and from that they are expected to write a correct and intelligible  story. On this basis misconceptions have arisen and the editor of  this paper has been placed in that position more than once.  It should not be expected that all sjpeakers at meetings' should  be elocutionists par excellence but it would help if they speak up  so the press would have a chance to know what they are talking  about. It would be better if a copy of the report could be loaned  to listening pressmen so they could follow what is going on.  Misconstrued understandings of events when published are usually damaging. This can be overcome if sensible' procedures are  followed. Today's press relations officers sometimes overwhelm  with their material but it is better to have too much than too little.  Thank you, ladies  With St. Mary's Hospitalnow at the point of actual expansion  from a 35 bed to a 70 bed hospital, it would be a good time to .com-  gratulate women of the Sunshine Coast who have worked valiantly  for many years to help improve hospital facilities.  Some of them were workers for the hospital at Garden Bay  but most of them today are involved in working for the hospital  at Sechelt. They have purchased equipment and have added improvement to the life of a hospital patierft generally.  This has taken up quite a bit of time and money. It will be surprising to most Sunshine Coasters that the organizations known as  Hospital Auxiliaries have over the test five years donated to St.  Mary's Hospital $21,000 plus many, many hours of duty either at the  hospital or in work elsewhere for hospital purposes.  With the hospital increasing to 70 beds, demands on Hospital  Auxiliaries are bound to increase.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 YEARS AGO  !"        FIVE YEARS AGO  Highest temperature during  July was 96.2. Rainfall for June  and July totalled 1.08 inches.  Gibsons council in view of dry  weather and falling water levels  for the water system has urged  customers to stop wantage of  water.  Provincial approval for its  Centennial project, improvement  ���of Brothers Memorial Park, has  been received by Gibsons rural  Centennial Committee.

During the month, rain was  registered as a trace only.  Gibsons council signed an  agreement with the federal government which included $36,000  for construction work.

''While you were away, Joe barbecued a three  alarm steak."  The LaBor scene  The B.C. Employers' Council  in its publication Newslines reports that the Alberta government has made extensive amendments to the Alberta Labor Act.  The major changes are:  Strengthening government authority to intervene in public interest disputes where these result in "extreme < privation or  human suffering caused by a  stoppage of services or (work  over an extended period of time"  and the establishment of a public emergency tribunal empowered to issue binding awards to  the parties. ,  Effective July 1, 1970, new and  amended provisions of the act  will regulate picketing, recognize trade unions and registered  employers' organizations as legal entities, provide for equal  pay investigations in the absence of formal complaints, and  prohibit discrimination in wage  rates of male and female employees where work is similar or  substantially similar. A board of  arbitration may" vary a penalty  Hearing aids  scrutinized  Of people over 65 in Canada,  one in every five has some hearing loss in both ears; And regardless of age, one in every 40  Canadians has some degree of  hearing handicap. If you are one  of these people, chances are that  you will turn to a hearing; aid  for help.  Hearing aids, in many cases,  can add greatly to your enjoyment of life. But if you are think  ing of buying one, there are  some things that you Should  know.  Get a doctor's advice' on the  degree of deafness and on the  value of a hearing aid in your  particular case.  Be wary of advertising claims  of instant hearing, new inventions and miracles.  Look for information on the  quality of the hearing aid, not  on its cosmetic value like tiny,  invisible and concealed. Manufacturers' brochures and promotional material usually give  more information than advertisements. Ask for them.  Contests for hearing aids are  often simply a means of acquiring names of prospective customers. It may be a disservice  to volunteer a friend's name.  Many provinces require door-  to-door salesmen licensed and-^  bonded. After signing a contract  with such salesmen, most provinces provide a few days during which you are allowed to reconsider and cancel it. Be aware '  of provincial laws and be certain  that the salesman is licensed.  At the time of purchase obtain  in writing any understandings as  to refunds.  Many dealers offer trial periods. Be certain of the terms under which trial is offered. If pos-;  sible consult a dealer who offers  trial prior to purchase.  Buy only from dealers who offer adequate service or repair  policies and be sure you understand the terms of the policy.  The report of the Hearing Aid  enquiry has been released by the  Hon. Ron Basford, minister of  consumer and corporate affairs.  It makes specific recommendations to the four bodies who have  the authority or the capability  to offer real help and protection  to the hard of (hearing.  PASSPORT PHOTOS  at the Coast News  in the case of dismissal or suspension of an employee, having  regard to the terms of an existing collective agreement. Analogous to the existing .system of  union certification, an employer  organization in the construction  industry may be accredited to  bargain exclusively ori behalf of  all its rriembers in si given trade  and territorial jurisdiction.  In other items the Employers'  Council reported that in the  White Paper ori the Uriemploy-  ment Insurance Commission, tabled on June 17 in the house of  commons by federal Labor Minister Bryce Mackasey, if. adopted, unemployment insurance  coverage would increase to $100  weekly for up to 51 weeks from  the current $53 for a maximum  of 18 weeks. Coverage would become universal, with the exception of self-employed persons,  and would cover about 6,500,000  workers. Contributions would increase to 96.3% of the labor  force from the current 80% when  the plan is fully operational by  January 1, 1975.  British Columbia Forest Products Ltd. issued a statement  saying: "We are concerned  where the financing will come  from to pay for the new coverage. ..Of course, iri a time of  increasing social benefits, no  one can argue with the proposal to cover as many as possible.'  Ray Haynes, secretary-treasurer of the B.C. Federation of  Coast News, Aug. 5, 1970.  Labor, said: "This is what the  labor movement has been pushing for all along." But Haynes  noted that it apparently, did not  propose a revision of rules to allow locked-out workers and others indirectly involved in labor  disputes to collect insurance. He  is also unhappy over the proposed taxing of the claims benefits, which could set a precedent  for other government relief payments. It could lead to income  tax on welfare and on a lot of  other relief schemes.  Ron Edmonds, co-ordinator for  White Paper action for the Unemployment Insurance Commission in the Pacific Region- and  Lome Carr, Pacific region's director   of   operations,   stressed  that there are clauses built into  the proposed act which would  make it adaptable to changing  economic   conditions.   Seasonal  workers will also benefit from  the proposed changes with regular unemployment insurance benefits being made available to  workers with a work attachment  of eight weeks instead of the  present 15 weeks. The new legislation would continue to exempt  from   benefits. workers   whose  jobs are affected by labor disputes ��� either striked or lockouts. Edmonds and Carr said the  proposed remodelling of the act  was  not  necessarily a( radical  move but was one made only after several years of del-Deration  and in an effort to keep up with  changing times.

Can an ordinary teaspoon  be used to dispense liquid medicine?  FOR ALL YOUR FL0ORC0VERING NEEDS  CALL ON  d  e  FL OOR COVEfclNCSS Ltd  1659 Sunshine Coast Highway at Wyngaert Road, Gibsons  Phone 886-7112  ��� CARPETS m TILES ��� LINOLEUMS  We Feature a Large Selection of Drapes  rA/HICN NEWT  The woman motorist who drives by the seat of her pantyhose  is safer on the highway than her  sister who wears a girdle, according" to a report in Marketing, the Canadian advertising  news weekly. It quotes an automobile manufacturer's survey  which claims the girdle is probably the most unsung menace  on the road today.  The car maker's argument  goes like this:. Discomfort from  the girdle causes the woman to  squirm, thus reducing concentration. And the pull from the  garters tends to hoist her feet  off the. control pedals. To overcome this, she. often pushes  against the pull and ends up going faster than she really intends  to. On the other hand (or leg)  weightless pantyhose is comfortable and allows complete  concentration on the road ahead.  But a leading girdle manufuc-  turer violently disagrees: "We  have been making girdles for 30  years and have never heard this  complaint. The evidence for this  claim seems to have been simply plucked out of thin air.  There's no foundation for these  statements."  Naturally, the pantyhose makers disagree. They rebut: "The  extra comfort women find in  wearing pantyhose must make  driving an easier and safer operation."  ����_ *��* �����*  ��_* ��t�� ���_��  Out of all the confusion surrounding minis, maxis and mi-  dis, Style, the business publication for woriien's and children's  wear, says there is an almost  direct correlation between the  price range of a store and how  many longer garments it has  purchased. Figures given to  Style by Toronto and Montreal  stores prove that the higher the  general price range of the store,  the more below the knee outfits  are to be found. 7  Several chic metropolitan  stores' stock contains: up to 90  percent longer garments, while  mass mechandisers are sticking  to short dresses and skirts almost exclusively.

Household teaspoons and  culinary measuring spoons frequently vary in volume; The  most accurate method of ensuring a proper dose for liquid medication is the use of a calibrated glass or plastic medicine cup  which has the various gradations marked on it. For purposes  of drug labelling a teaspoon dose  is considerel to be equivalent to  a voluriie of 5 cubic centimetres.  Q. How does the food value  of white bread compare with  that of whole wheat bread?  A. Most white bread sold in  Canada is made from enriched  flour containing added thiamine,  rib-flavin; niacin and iron in  amounts specified by Food and  Drug .Regulations. Consequently  the food value of white enriched  bread compares favorably with  that of whole wheat or cracked  wheat and in fact may contain  more calcium, thiamine and riboflavin.  Q. Are all food additives laboratory chemicals?  A. Some food additives are  derived fromfoods. For example  lecithin which may sometimes  be used in processed foods as a  preservative is derived from Soybeans arid corn.  Q. Why do Food and Drug  regulations permit the addition  of vitamin A to skim milk?  A. Skim milk is milk from  which most of the milk fat has  been removed. In removing the  milk fat, vitamin A, which is fat  soluble is also removed. To compensate for this loss Food and  Drug regulations permit the en-  richriient of skim jmilk with added vitamin A.  Q. What are hydrolyzed vegetable proteins as listed on the labels for some foods?  A. These substances are flavor erthancers in the form of partially broken down proteins.  They may be obtained from  such foods as> wheat, rye, soya  or corn.  Q. Food products are packaged in many types of containers including those made from  wood, paper, glass, plastics and  alurriirium foil. Is one type of  container safer than another?  A. Food packaging materials  vary with the nature of the products they contain. Food and  Drug Regulations specify that  no person shall sell any food in  a package that may yield to its  contents any substance that may  be injurious to the health of a  consumer of the food. Inspection  arid scientific analysis ensure  that this regulation is being carried out.  Q. Are there calorie or sugar  reduced foods and drinks available for use iri carbohydrate or  might require them now that cy-  clamates have been banned?  A. Soft drinks containing saccharin or a saccharin-sugar mixture are now available and a declaration of the contents appears  on the label. Canned fruits suitable for use in carbohydrate ro  calorie restricted diets will soon  be marketed.  By A; R. BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa  Changes in the popularity of  different flowers emerge periodically according to individual  tastes,, availability of new sel-  ectioris, and new trends in landscape design and maintenance.  Twenty years ago the .geranium  -or zo'nale pelargonium was quite  commonplace, they were consistently used in park bedding  schemes, for window boxes, and  in many corners of the garden.  As labor costs increased, bedding schemes involving the carryover of plants inside through  the winters, and those that required more maintenance became impractical, and soon geraniums, which were in tihds  group, were less conspicuous in  public places and the demand  for them from home owners  diminished.  Nowadays there are a large  number of newer kinds avail-  abe in different colors and with  the popularity of part&os and  containers, many more places in  which to grow them. Furthermore, the mass production by  specialists of cultured cuttings  has greatly reduced disease problems and the necessity of carrying plants through .the winter;  thus the showy geranium has  once more come into its own in  public parks and home gardens.  If you aren't aware of the diversity of color and form found  in the newer types of geraniums  then investigate the possibility  of using some in your summer  bedding schemes, for they are  among the most distinguished  and perpetual flowering of all  our garden plants.  Most florists and garden centers carry bedding geraniums.  If you have a choice, choose  your varieties from the 'First  Lady' series Mamie, an excellent red; Eleanor, deep salmon;  Bess, begonia rose double, and  Jacqueline, signal red double,  are the most outstanding. Another series of great beauty is the  Irene series, containing about  fifteen different kinds. Penny Irene, double rosy-pink, an$ Dark  Red Irene, bright deep * red flowers, are two of the best. Others of merit are Snowball, white  Cardinal, signal red witih large  flat florets; Pink Jade, a new  orchid pink; Orange Glow, orange, scarlet, Galaxie, dark  crimson arid finally the showy  Mme.  Langguth,  with variega  ted green and white leaves and  brick-red single fiowers.  You can select the color you  prefer from the local outlets,  for most plants will have at least  one flower on them when you  buy."  The cultural requirements of  these plants are simple. Older  varieties appear to grow better  when they are shaded from the  mid-day sun or are in part shade  most of the day; they blossom  better in full sun but their leaves  are yellowish and not attractive  and the blooms are not as large.  The newer varieties rherttioned  above, however, have been bred  with the sunny garden in mind,  and most or them will grow better in full sunlight. In general  they require a nice light loamy  well-drained soil. If your soil  is heavy add peat moss or per-  lite ito make it more friable and  to provide improved drainage.  Geraniums look well standing  in their own glory or associated with annuals to enhance  their brilliant coloring. For example, a bed of pink or red  kinds edged with alyssum can  be very effective. Pink geraniums edged with light blue ager-  atum, or red geraniums edged  with dark blue lobelia, are two  other attractive color combinations.  Patios really clamor for the  flamboyant geraniums. Plant  them in tubs or decorated pails  or in special geometrical beds  in the patio floor. Use these  plants sparingly in borders as  they tend to dominate the whole  Coast News, Aug. 5, 1970.       3  .garden. Wherever they are  planted, they require a background of grey or green to present their best appearance. This  may be provided if not already  existing, by fast-growing foliage  annuals such as the castor oil  bean (Ricinus), or the burning  bush (Kochia).  All summer the geraniums  must be kept well watered and  the old faded flowers removed.  i_f they become top heavy, pinch  them back and they will branch  out at the base.  prrf  it  ' -'  For Real Estate on the  Sunshine Coast  K.CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

Another letter  for Loff mark  Another letter will be sent to  Health Minister Loff mark and  the BCHIS to ascertain what is  delaying action on the Pender  Harbour hospital clinic and to  inform both that Pender Harbour Director J. H. Tyner will  shortly visit Victoria offices of  the BCHIS.  Last official word the directors of the Sunshine Coast Re*-  gional Hospital District received was that it would be better  for those concerned to submit a  new brief, known as the Clearwater brief, which apparently the  department favors. This was  some months ago.  Those working On behalf of the  clinic have been waiting patiently for a copy of the Clearwater  brief and are still waiting but  their patience is running out. Director Tyner reported that during an interview with the minister when he visited the hospital  a couple of months ago he promised action.  Sharpe - Harding  On July 25, 1970, at 12 noon in  Gibsons United Church*, Misp>  Mary Pauline, daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. Paul G. Harding of  Gibsons, was united in marriage  with Mr. Donald George Sharpe,  son of Mr. and- Mrs. William  Page, of Delta, B.C. Rev. J. Williamson officiated.  The charming bride was gowned in a floor length empire waist-  ed gown of Migoda crepe, with  scooped neckline and floating  Alencon lace panels, attached  Migoda train and lily point  sleeves. Her short scalloped Organza veil was held in place  with stephanotis and pearls. She  carried a crescent shape: bouquet of white carnations, pink  rosebuds and stephanotis.  Matron of honor Mrs. Marilyn  Ranniger of Gibsons, wore a  short mauve moss crepe empire  style dress with long sleeves,  and she carried a half crescent  bouquet of pink and white carnations.

Best man was Mr. Ed." Davis.  Bob MacFarlane, brother-in-law  of the groom and Bob Harding,  brother of the bride were ushers.  The bride's mother chose a  gown of turquoise and white with  white accessories, while the  groom's mother chose white lace  over pink taffeta with white accessories.  The reception was held in Gibsons Legion Hall with Mr. Richard Ranniger as master of ceremonies.  For leaving on their honeymoon of two weeks in Pender  Harbour, Nelson Island and Princess Louise Inlet, the bride wore  a pale green crepe dress with  ivory accessories and a beige  camel coat.

Specials out  Provincial municipal authorities have decided the' Regional  .District board should avoid specific areas with varying taxation rates. This came as the result of the recent set-to by residents who found they were on  'borderline areas which had a  higher taxation than their next  door neighbors.  To avoid this the provincial  authority has recommended the  Regional District merge Wilson  Creek and- Davis Bay with Selma Park so it would come under  the one level of taxation. Specific areas are usually set up for  the use of some service such as  street lighting.  .The board decided it would  prepare a bylaw to cover the  operations of the regional district staff and working conditions for future use.  50 AT SOCIAL  Following the July 25 wedding  and reception of their daughter  Mary Pauline to Mr. Donald G.  Sharpe, Mr. and Mrs. Paul G.  Harding, Gibsons, entertained t  both clans. A social evening and  buffet supper was enjoyed by all  50 people. Mr. William Harding  of Nelson Island was the only  one of the six Harding brothers  and one sister, Mrs. Dave Taylor, unable to attend the wed-  dingT  Coast News, Aug. 5, 1970.       5  OES Sunday  trip explores  highways, byways  Lost, and strayed were 26 mem  -bers of the OES on Sunday when  led by Harry Mylroie, PP, they  covered the highways and byways of the Sunshine Coast on,  one of their enjoyable, mystery  trips.  Stops were made at various  scenic spots, sideroads were explored, and detours were executed in a clever and misleading  fashion so that none had an idea  as to where the trip might end.  Finally, after some fancy backtracking, they came at last to  the Castle, an old Roberts Creek  landmark, owned by Mr. and  Mrs. Charles Merrick, and occupied by Bob and Grace Cum-  - ming, PM.  There a sumptuous smorgasbord was prepared and the hungry horde fell to, seated comfortably on the lawn overlooking  the gulf.  Then followed an hour of  games' where the competition  for prizes was keen, and would-  be golfers whacked balls all  over the grounds, even into the  cup, egg-carrying racers tossed  eggs about in an irresponsible  manner and dart-throwefrs made  the place temporarily unsafe.  Snap-happy Polaroid . camera  owners provided a record of the  scene and participants.  The Castle, a quaint and altogether charming cottage, named because of its upstairs turret,  was built by Harry Roberts in  1917.  Little has been done to change  the original lines except for the  addition of windows. Larger  than it appears from the outside  the house contains a combination living-dining room, kitchen,  bedroom and utility room on the  first floor, and a large bedroom,  bathroom and turret bedroom  upstairs.  Furthermore,     the     upstairs  landing      contains      something  -which the average modern honie  lacks, a huge built-in chest for  storing; winter bedding.  Constructed of logs with shingles on the second floor, it is  painted in pastel colors throughout, with dark beams in the living room. The fireplace, also  built by Mr. Roberts, shows not  a trace of smoke despite the  more than 50 years of usage in  an area where.winter winds play  havoc with chimneys.  Surrounding the rock and mortar chimney, and deriving its  heat from it, he had built a  rounded green house in which  Mr. Roberts had raised many  exotic plants, but vandals broke  the glass during the owners'  temporary absence, and it. was  not replaced.  A fountain, also built by Mr.  Roberts, was restored by Mr.  Merrick and now plays gracefully upon its pool. Added to this  charming spot are Mrs. Cum-  ���mings' collection of driftwood  oddments, their crevices supporting tiny pots of plants, and  also a gorgeous hanging basket  of fuschias given to her by Mrs.  Jen Monrufet.  Mrs. Monrufet sends affectionate greetings to her friends here  and states that she is well and  happy. 7  The mystery trip was engineered by Mrs. Jo Mylroie and  Mrs. Ruth Harrison, and was a  great success.

Lamb of Sechelt, became the  bride of Mr. William E. Quarry,  eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. W.  O. Quarry of Gibsons. Rev. Father J. O'Grady of Coquitlam officiated. Miss Margaret Mcln-  tyre was organist.  Th<&?bride.was; charrning in a  whifeijfeorded silk nylon arid lace  appliqrie gown en train, with  three quarter sleeves7 with floral cuff. Her bouffant net veil  was held in place with a floral  arrangement. She carried' a colonial bouquet of red roses and  quets of Marguerite daisies.  Maid of honor, Miss Carol  Procknow and bridesmaids Misses Dianne Ono and Denise  Quarry were gowned alike in  pale yellow silk with white chiffon overlay^ Empire, line, with  bouffant .chiffon sleeves with  wide cuffs and embroidered daisies on the sleeves. They wore  headdresses of 'matching material held in place with a satin rosette, and carried colonial bouquets of Marguerite diasies.  Best man was Mr. Rick Marsh  of Progress, and ushers Tom  Lamb and Bill Quarry, brothers  of the bride and groom.  , The bride's mother chose a  soft pink crimpalene long sleeved, long-waisted gown^ with flared skirt, white hat and accessories, with a corsage of pink carnations.  The groom's mother chose a  gown of coral chiffon ribboned  top with nylon chiffon pleated  skirt, matching hat and white  accessories and corsage of white  carnations.  A reception was held in the  Port Mellon Community Hall,  with Mr. Maurice Hemstreet as  master of ceremonies, with music by Penn Kings band.  The head table held two beautiful heirloom candelabra and the  wedding cake topped with fresh  Marguerite daisies complemented the bride's bouquet. The  guest tables had beautiful floral arrangements of pastel gladioli and daisies and white tapers.  The bride's bouquet /was  caught by Carol Procknow and  the garter by Doug Sutherland.  Roberts Creek Hospital Auxiliary did the catering.  For going away on their honeymoon to Calgary, Jasper and  Dawson Creek, the bride wore  a two piece pink ensemble with  a black hat and accessories.  They will reside at 8739 Osiers  Vancouver, on their return.  Special guests were Mrs. T. A.  Lamb, grandmother of the bride,  Mrs. L. Raincock, Penticton;  Mr. and Mrs. Huie Lamb, daughters Arden and Maureen and escort; Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Has-  lett and Kathy; Miss Henrietta  Campbell, Vancouver; Mr. and  Mrs. D. E.

Board questions  expense policy  When a purchasing agent  saves a hospital thousands of-  dollars by judicious buying why  should he not be entitled to have  his expenses paid out of money  apportioned to hospital construction?  This was a question over which  the Regional District board pondered at its Friday night meeting last week. As director Rutherford of Halfmoon Bay said,  the man, J. M. Cave, saved a  great deal more than his salary  in purchases for the hospital extension.  The issue came before the  board when the BCHIS finance  department refused to pay, according to department regulations, any part of such expense  in the one-third the provincial  officials would reimburse the regional board.  Board members pointed out  that the situation as regards the  expenditure in the first instance  was created by the run-around  the board received in its efforts  to get the addition to the hospital to the point where it was actually going to be built. Just how  this expense account will be paid  to keep the books straight will  be tackled by the board's finance  committee.  Added further was the fact the  purchasing agent also saved taxpayers a considerable amount of  money.  SHARE YOUR  GOOD HEALTH  BE A BLOOD DONOR 6       Coast News, Aug. 5, 1970.

El RITCHEY  FOR RENTAL  Jacks, Pumps  Concrete Vibrator  Phone 886-2040  (Copyright)  A. Our national paries are divided into three categories, A, B  and C. Class A and C parks are  not to be used for explioting mineral resources. However, Class  B parks may be prospected and  staked if the government first issues a park use permit and to  get one the applicant must show  that it would not be* detrimental  to the recreational values of the  . park and it won't prevent the  park from being used for its designated purpose. It's difficult to.  imagine a mining operation that  would not interfere 'with the intended use of a park but it  could be that the prospector you  saw had such a permit:  Q. 7 Somebody told me that  prospectors have real tax advantages and other benefits. It  that true?  A. Yes, to some extent. A  prospector may apply to the  provincial [government for a  grub-stake and he can get $400  per year.. Also under the Canadian Income Tax Act a prospector may deduct his expenses and  the same privilege applies to  anyone who has contributed mon  ey to the prospector to help pay  his expenses. Also, of the claim  is successful and they begin operating a mine they have what is  known as a three year tax holiday during which time they  would have considerable tax advantages.  Q. Can I prospect on an Indian Reservation?  A. Yes, if the Indians on that  reservation have not surrendered their mineral rights to some  one else and if you obtain the  permission of the Governor-General in Council and the permission of the local Indian agent for  , that particular reservation.  Human race  ill be saved  "There will be no exit of man  from the earth. The human race  will be saved to endless life on  earth in happiness.'' So stated  Kenneth Little, Canadian supervisor for Jehovah's Witnesses, in  his feature discourse, Saving the  Human Race ��� In The Kingdom  Way, climaxing the fuor-day  Men of Goodwill assembly of the  Witnesses in Vancouver at the  Pacific Coliseum, July 23 to 26.  An audience of 13,065 heard  Mr. Little develop the theme out  lining the Bible's prophetic state  ments concerning mankind's future. In an age of gloomy prophecies about man and his ecology, Jehovah's Witnesses hold  a view in stark contrast, one of  brighter prospects for the future,  a world government taking anti-  v pollution measures that will benefit all.  In a special ceremony conducted Friday morning 254 new  ministers of Jehovah's Witnesses presented themselves for baptism indicating a dedication to  God and a determination to live  by Bible principles. The Witnesses baptized more than 120,000  such' ministers in 1969, averaging one every five minutes.  *  Delegates from the Sunshine  Coast area expressed themselves  as especially appreciating the  full-costume Bible drama as part  in an evening program in which .  modern application was made to  the Bible book" of Esther. The  Vancouver assembly was the  fourth of a series of ten similar  conventions held in Canada this  summer coinciding with 36 gatherings in the United States.

It is my opinion that for the  people who are happy to see our  natural resources given away  for practically nothing, our  schools, hospitals and other  health facilities being cut back  to dangerous levels, the shoddy  treatment of our native people  and senior citizens, a labor situation that must be about the  worst in North America, due to  this government's irresponsible  policies, to those people I say  you have something to celebrate.  As for my family and myself,  we intend to take part in the  festivities and the hospitality  extended by the people of Powell River on Sea Fair Days, but  in no way should this be construed as supporting the: atrocious policies of the Social Credit government.  ���Don Lockstead,  Texada Island, B.C.

LaFond,  Hopkins Landing, attended the  marriage of their second grandson, Neil Raymond Westmacott,  of Nelson, B.C., to Barbara  Joyce Owsley, also of Nelson, on  Saturday, Aug. 1 in St. Lawrence  Anglican Church, Coquitlam.  The bride was attended by her  sister and the groom by his two  brothers. The Rev. James Major  performed the double ring ceremony. Miss Eleanor Patch played the bridal music on the organ.  A reception and banquet at 6  p.m. in the Flamingo Hotel,  King George Highway, was followed with dancing. It was attended, by over 100 friends and  relatives from Nelson, Calgary,  Abbotsford and .Vancouver. The  bride's uncle was master of ceremonies.  The Regional board is looking  into. the proposal emanating  from government sources that  garbage dumps from Oct. 1 will  be required to have a permit to  operate issued by the pollution  board.  This came out when the board  was discussing regional garbage  problems which included a letter from government offlciials  which stated the Halfmoon Bay  dump would have to be fenced  with a locked gate at the entrance. No burning would ibe allowed. *However the board was  of the opinion it could not enforce any no-burning regulation.  The fence was regarded as an  expensive and unnecessary encumbrance.  The Pender Harbour dump was  in the position that it will have  to be surveyed before progress  can be made.  In answer to the board inquiry  whether there were regulations  against septic tank fluid dumping, government department officials said there were none but  the owner of the vehicle doing  the dumping would have to hold  a permit.  Len Van Egmond of Halfmoon  Bay Development informed the  regional board he was seeking  a pollution permit for installation of a 15,000 gallon prefabricated steel septic tank under  specified area regulations. His  tank would take care of sewage  for a 30 lot development he has  in hand and be of use in a wider  area as well. The board received his plan on an information  basis only. The project could be  subject to a plebiscite.  Secretary Charles Gooding in  his report to the board reported  that dry weather has caused  problems with all * garbage  dumps and a considerable  amount of work has been undertaken to clear and cover to ease  the fire problem. Fires have occurred at all dumps, the worst  being at the Garden Bay dump.  Salt has been obtained and laid  on the road to the Sechelt dump  to alleviate the dust nuisance.  He added that there has been  a considerable addition to the  garbage collection loading in the  areas where summer cottages  are located and more casual residents appear to be using the  service. Apart from the nuisance  caused by the continuing use of  plastic bags and boxes there  have been no problems with the  collection service.
