Some 1,500 feet of (Ms extension will be paid for by develop-  \ ers of the Hough property.  Announcement of the exten-*  sion was made last Thursday  night at a meeting of the Pratt  Road Ratepayers association by  Aid. Charles Mandelkau, chairman of the Gibsons; water committee. Work will start shortly.  Reporting back after attending  a school board meeting to see  What could be done about a  school bus link for S-turn, Gower Point and Pratt Road children, Geoff Thatcher and Ray  Lineker said the board turned  the matter over to the transportation committee for study. Mr.  Thatcher informed the board  that it might be possible to make  use of the bus which brings Indian children down from Sechelt. The plan would be work-,  ed oh a co-operative basis at  ten cents per ride, with the children being given passes for daily use.  f Camanenting on ^the.highways ^gravel for about 300 acres and  dB_��rtn_ent refusal,'to jjiace. ^expend abou^ $1,000,000 on de-  sidewaiks **&��* Hig^wajr"101 ^p*^ yelo_wfent-and plant, exclusive  secondary 'highways, theassoci-' -**" *~*"" ���*.'��~k ������____. -__-;__��_  ation maintained it never asked  for sidewalks, hut that paths or  k widened' shoulders be utilized.

Council at its Tuesday, night meeting last week decided it wants to keep the ramp  at its present size and will inform the department of its decision.  A letter from the department  revealed its intention but Mayor Wally Peterson and the aldermen do not see eye to eye with  the department. For example,  the change would remove the  present walk down the ramp,  which aldermen explained was  used considerably during summer months.  Council was also of the opinion the ramp should be left as  it is now. 'As'it is the only federal wharf now in use over a  wide area it was felt it should  be left as future traffic will  not be lighter. If reduced in  width, it would also kill the pres  ent parking area now available  on the sidewalk side of the ramp  Council will inform the department by letter that it does not  look with favor on departmental  intentions.  Canon buried  Rev. Canon Harry Usher Oswald, 85, retired Anglican minister, died Saturday. The funeral service was held Tuesday at  St. Bartholomew's church with  Rt. Rev. T. D. Somerville, Rt.  Rev. Godfrey P. Gower, Rev.  Dennis Morgan, Rev. Canon  Minto Swan and Rev. Canon  Alan D. Greene officiating. Cremation followed.  of towing which would be contracted. Loading would have to  be carried on with one eye on  tides as the Skookumchuk would  have to be used to get into open  water. There would be two or  three 20 ton trucks operating  with the crusher.      ,  After hearing company representatives and public opposition  to the project board members  tabled the correspondence and  await further development.  Three letters were presented  in opposition to the project.  They will be found in full on  page six of this issue.  Mr. Gemmel said the land  was not owned by his company  but was leased from,Mr. Walters. It had to meet the standards of the Strip Mining Act.  Crowston Porpoise Bay Estates complained, that it would  spoil the landscape, be noisy,  and affect fish spawning in Angus Creek.  Mr. G. Spratt, the project engineer, regarded ��he gravel as  of high quality.and much needed with the present area supply  running out in about five years.  Mr. Screeves, a company man,  explained their leased land was  about 300 acres and the plant  would cover an area of 200 by  200 feet and it would not be an  eyesore because when travelling  by in a car at 34 mph one could  see the operation for not more  than six or eight seconds. The  plant would operate on a four or  five and a half day work week .  with one eight hour daylight  shift employing eight to ten men  A 100 foot channel would be  constructed out from the shore  to allow the scows to approach  for loading. With a small rock  content it was not expected that  the screen and crushers would  make much noise as the rock  content is on the small side.  There would be the noise of  trucks and equipment pushing  gravel down to the crushers.  He said there would be very  little pollution to the water as  the water for washing gravel  would be taken from Angus  Creek albove the falls, which is  well albove the spawning  grounds. The water would then  be recycled with settling ponds  to store the surplus and not  dumped into the bay.  These settling ponds would be  cleaned out after a period^ of  time with the company being  able to sell the fine sand.' and  silt at $10 per ton. As regards  the unsightly appearance; the  area would be graded1 "and replaced to the natural grade as  close as grades specified'in the  Strip Mining Act. With quick  grow__njg_j_T^��ijgyt|d.. irjee^ '  landscape could be imprt��ved  from its original state. Groves  of trees could be planted as a  shield between the highway and  plant. All this would have to be  done, he said1, before the company bond would be returned to  the owners by the mines branch.  Ganshorn resigns  School trustee J. D. Ganshorn,  now. employed at Port Mellon's  CFP mill, announced at Thursday night's school board' meeting he was resigning as he  would be leaving the area.  Mr. Ganshorn will move to  Chile where he will join a large  pulp mill operation. He will  leave somewhere about the middle of December.  His resignation will create a  vacancy on "the board so a replacement will have to be found  for next year. He was filling a  two year term'. His successor  will fill the remaining one year.  New nursery  Pre-school nurseries are creating problems for the school  board. The Jack, and Jill Nursery school now operating in the  United Church hall sought room  in Gibsons Elementary school  at last Thursday night's school  board meeting. The board decided it had no spare room. Trustee J. D. Ganshorn pressed Supt.  R. R. Hanna asking if he was  sure there was no space. Supt.  Hanna maintained there was  none.  Earlier in the meeting Bowen  Island mothers received permission to go ahead and use vacant  space in Bowen Island school  for 14 pre-schoolers from three  to five years old. Parents were  willing to form a co-operative  and obtain the services of a certified teacher.  Trustee William Malcolm in  Whose area Egmont has a nursery school wanted to know  whether mothers did not want  their children at home any more  Supt. Hanna answering said that  this early period was a tremenr  dous learning age for such children. Trustees A. Labonte and  J. D. Ganshorn moved that the  request be granted.  . John! .-Burnside, president of  the Sechelt Teachers' Association,   announced Saturday that  .' the teachers' organization1 has  passed a resolution recommending that the District 46 school  board liberalize its, dress code  '. for students in the district.  Burnside said that the Elphin-  , stone Student Council has been  . negotiating with"; the School  board" and ' the school administration for a change in dress  code.  -   .       - -   ���-:������-'.,-- X:  '. The STA president said the  teachers* action came after  many teachers had expressed  concern over the deterioration  of student morale resulting from  the present dress code.  Tailored slacks for the young  ladies of Elphinstone school are  still a matter of debate. Thurs1-  day night last week the school  board discussed the problem  and then voted three to two  against. Chairman Mrs. Sheila  Kitsen decided if she voted yes  it would be a tie vote which  would be negatived according to  the school act, so did not vote.  Chamber  requires  secretary  ~ Gibssfl___na_-d. District- Chamber  of Commerce at Monday night's  dinner meeting in the Peninsula  Hotel decided to seek a secretary who would be able to devote more time to the job than  past secretaries have been able  , to give.  It seeks a retired individual  who would work closer, to a full  time basis than in the past. The  : salary would not be a strong  point. It seeks someone with  knowledge of the business and  industrial world who would  maintain a liaison with events.  7 Frank Hay was elected pres-  ���ident and Barry Anderson, vice-  ', president. Winston Robinson will  continue as treasurer and the  executive will include Dick  Blakeman, retiring president;  Dave Parry, Walt Nygren,  Frank Daugherty, Moe Girard,  Lorraine Goddard, Audrey Hinz  and Ruth Baker.  A working party to assist the  Ski club in getting the old B & K  logging road opened as a route  to the ski area, will be at the  call of chairman of the working  party Winston Robinson. All  equipment and labor will be on  a voluntary basis.  West Gibsons Heights Ratepayers association sought the  support of the chamber in its  aims to get road shoulders widened to allow pedestrian walking and a school bus for up to 75  children who face long walks  plus other improvements as  needed. The chamber decided it  would take the matter under  consideration as it would be a  matter of policy. A trio of association members discussed their  problems with the chamber.  Oops! Sorry!  Last week's civic election  story had some readers confused. The confusing part read:  "In Gibsons Aid. Ken Goddard  has decided he will run again.  Aid. Charles Mandelkau will var  cate his seat after a one year  term created when Wally Peterson resigned as alderman so he  could contest the seat for mayor."  Some people have harbored  the idea that Aid. Mandelkau is  leaving-council. Such is not the  case. He has decided to run  again.  The board decided to turn the  issue back to school principals  to get their views. They should  have a report ready for the next  meeting. Those who voted  against were Trustees Mrs. A.  Labonte, William Malcolm and  John Hayes. Voting in favor  were Trustees Bernard Mulligan  . and J. D. Ganshorn. Trustee Dr.  Waiter Burtnick was absent.  .Trustees Labonte and Mulligan following defeat of the first  motion moved that the matter  be referred back to school principals.   7  Trustee   Mrs.   Labonte   had  ' some objection from parents and  for herself she preferred to see  the   girls   retain   their  present  identity in skirts. S8ie also  thought it would create more  problems for teachers. Chairman Mrs. Kitson thought tailored slacks were in keeping with  the mode of the times and anyway she added it was- a matter  of policy covering all the schools  in the district.  The motion came before the  board following a unanimous  vote taken at the school through  operations of the student council and four of the student council appea'red before the board at  a previous meeting to present  their resolution. They were also present at last Thursday  nights' meeting to see what happened.  AN ACTION PACKED MOMENT in Driftwood Players production  of See How They Run, directed by John Burnside. The play willi  be presented at Sechelt Elementary School on Nov. 27 and' 28, and  at Elphinstone on Dec. 4 and 5.  A 50 foot constitution  The second session of Elphinstone Secondary school parliament in the gym Nov. 10 started  at 7:30 p.m. with the reading of  a speech from the throne by Steven Lee, prime minister, and a  budget report by Linda Pearson,  secretary of finance, followed  by departmental secretaries presenting their white papers.  For social affairs it was decided there would be a student  government sponsored Christmas dante, 'Dec. 18. The senior  boys basketball team will play  their first game of this season  at Pender Harbour school on  Nov. 20.  During the session several  resolutions were introduced and  one concerned a school district  Centennial project of historic  carnival type including an Indian village, folk dances and  other items. The vote opposed  this idea.  The students decided to continue talks with the education  conditions comimittee to see  what could be done about a Centennial project.  Another resolution concerned  fund raising for retarded. children and another for the showing of David Hancock's film Pacific Wilderness which the student government will sponsor.  Both were tabled for further deliberation.  The most important business  was a resolution on the acceptance of the constitution. It was  26 pages in length and was copied out in full by Cafchi Hem  street, secretary of justice on a  scroll which is some 50 feet long  Copies were also typed by commerce classes and will be posted in each room. The constitution was accepted in principle  by parliament, then signed by  the prime minister, cabinet  members and parliament members, j  Ski club gets  area reserved  Tetrahedron Ski Club was officially informed this week by the  B.C. Forest Service that approximately 90 acres of forest  land on the north east side of  Mount Elphinstone has been set  aside for ski hill development  purposes.  Special usage permits will be  issued giving the ski club jurisdiction over areas which they  may develop as ski runs and  tows, at the 'discretion of the  Sechelt or Vancouver District  forester.  Negotiations are going ahead  to open up the old B & K logging road to public access.

Involved in the sale are the inventory off trade and school text  books, some physical assets and the Ryerson Press name whaich  will continue to be used by the McGraw-Hill company. Premier R6-  barts of Ontario has conferences under way so whether the sale  to McGraw-Hill is final remains unanswered.  The United Church, owners of Ryerson Press, have sold the  publishing end only, they still retain ownership of the "commeiicial  . printing operation with plant and building and will continue publi-  cation of the United Church Observer and other church printing.  It should be recalled that governors of radio and TV broadcasting have insisted oh more Canadian content in their productions and it seems somewhat unusual that if Canadianism is to be  nurtured should government officials resort to the attitude they are  powerless to do anything under Canadian laws? There is no law  which states how much Canadianism should exist but non-governmental units can apparently make such a decision.  Perhaps the shades of Johnny and Janey Canuck now lurking  in the limbo of time are blushing because they are powerless to��  help. For the young it should be explained that Johnny and Janey  Canuck existed in the same way as Britain's John Bull. Mayibe  we need both Johnny and Janey as a symbol.  Frank G. Brisbdn, secretary of the United Church Division of  Communication has suggested that governments take some effective interest in the print media just as they do in broadcasting.  He also urges Canadians to take a look at their own purchases,  including school and other officials, to see what they can do to  help Canadian publishers.  What can you do about it? You can express your views! in a  letter to Premier Robarts and also to the McGraw-Hill Company  of Canada, 330 Progress Road, Agincourt, Ontario.  If the church could have hung on to Ryerson Press it surely  would have done so but to be faced with' a financial situation which  needed about $2,500,000 to clear up there were no takers ��� except  McGraw-Hill.  The federal .government was wUlin^ to sujjport.a losing cause  lake Rochdale co^^  not support something clean like Ryerson Press.  Mode versus custom  Whether young ladies at Elphinstone School should wear tailored slacks while at school is a problem yet to be decided.  The school parliament with its cabinet of student council members obtained from students a unanimous vote in favor of slacks.  The student council put the matter before the school board.  At last week's board meeting it was discussed resulting in a  vote which turned it down ��� yet not exactly. As the problem would  become board policy for all schools it Was thought best that it  should be passed back to the principals of all schools. They will  report back to the board what they think of it.  To forecast the. next school board vote result would be dangerous but in view of the democratic way in which students placed  the issue before the board they should be given favorable consideration. Maybe they might be led to decide democracy has some  good points after all.

BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute, Ottawa  Bringing hardy spring-flower-  ing bulbs into bloom during the  drab winter months is almost  as simple as putting away produce in the freezer for use at  some future date.  If we plant three to five bulbs  in a pot, we like to see all the  flowers from these bulbs bloom  at the same time and no precocious blooms ahead of, and  no tardy blossom behind the  others.  The bulbs most commonly  used for winter forcing are, of  course, tulips, hyacinths and  daififodils, but crocus, grape hya-  ci-iths, scilla, snowdrops, winter  aconites. and fritillaries will  force quite well arid provide an  interesting variation. Dutch irises and even lily-of-the-valley too  provide spring in winter with  moderate forcing.  Although you will probably  want to experiment with growing bulbs in water, pebbles or  bulb fibre and in special glass  or earthenware containers, it is  better to stick to the . common  clay bulb pan and flower pot  and a good compost or soil mixture, if top quality blooms are  desired. A mixture of half"_>art  good top soil, one-quarter part  sand, arid one quarter part peatmoss with about two ounces of  696 fertilizer to the bushel of mix  will suit admirably.  Choose containers which suit  the types of bulbs being planted. All daffodils and tulips require six-inch standard pots  which will Jake three daffodil  bulbs and five to six tulips. For  hyacinths use five-inch pots for  single bulbs and plant three in  a six-inch pot. For smaller  bulbs, use'bulb pans,six 'to eight  inches in diaiheter, spacing the  bulbs one inch apart.  Planting can be done any time  until December, although I like  to get this dorie in October if  possible. Always put the same  variety of the same type of bulb  in one pot, otherwise the flowers ^may not open evenly and at  the ^ame time.  Place some pieces; of broken  -pot over the hole in the container and cover this with sphagnum moss or coarse leaves.  Then put in enough soil pressed  down tight so that when the  bulbs are placed in position their  noses are about one-half : inch  below the rani of the pot. When  the bulbs are in place, fill between them, press the soil down  firmly and give a thorough watering.  Provide a temperature of 40  to 50 degrees Fahrenheit for six  weeks or longer in a dark place  for root productiori; then SO  degrees in as much light as possible for three weeks or so for  growth of stem and leaves; and  finally 60 to 65 degrees in the  light for flower production.  If "you don't have a cooli dark  part of a cellar with temperature from 40 to 50 degrees, then  the best thing to do is make a  plunging pit outside.7 7  First, a well-drained and nearby location is selected in the  garden, then dig a trench a foot  deep, large enough to accommodate the bulbs. Place three inches of cinders or stones in the  bottom to provide drainage.  Stand the pots on this drainage  layer and fill in below and over  them with dry sand, peat moss  or vermiculite. Leaves are good  but don't make a layer thicker  than four inches or else they will  overheat and force the bulbs into premature growth.  If you have pots to spare place  them upside down over the pots  or pans of bulbs before you cover them-. This eliminates the  need for scraping off the sand  when removing the pots from  the trench.  When the pots are filled with  roots ��� which will be from five  to eight weeks according to the  type of bulb ��� you may bring  them inside so that the plants  may begin making top growth.  The nearer to the natural time  The McGr^  (By ERIC R. THOMSON)  Recently, Mr. Alan Jessop,  editor of the Vancouver Province editorial page, paid kindly tribute to his predecessor of  years ago, the late D. A. McGregor, who had died, aged 91.  Under the heading From an  Angle on the Square, Mr. McGregor had dealt whimsically  with cabbages and kirigs up to  his 91st birthday, and on occasion had backed me into his Angle, for the fact was that we  were next door neighbors at  Hopkins Landing.  About 40 years ago, the two  houses were built, and once the  two of us had roofs over our  heads, we became week-enders,  neighbors, and with pick and  shovel restored the ditch below  our respective lots, and it is still  there.  We were also fellow passengers on the Union Steamships,  and in winter, when even the  Union wouldn't put on a Friday  night boat, we were among the  faithful who braved the wintry  seas on-Capt. MacKenzie's Ty-  ���macs, but it was some time before these people became aware  that there "was a chiel amang  them taking notes, and faith,  he'll print them."  Mr. McGregor was rather shy,  and took no active part in the  discussions in the smoking room  of the Capilano, or in the cabin  of the Tymac, but he quite often  worked into his column interest  ing incidents about West Howe  Sound from these sources. He  got me, one time, as below.  In those days there was a lot  of community effort, and hard  times. Those of us, who were at  that time week-enders, werie  called upon to contribute cash  on these undertakings, such as  regattas and hall building. I  was collector, and one of the  calls I made was on Mr. McGregor. The Province had just  then burst its seams in the old  Carter-Cotton Building and had  moved up hill to the corner of  Pender and Cambie, and everything was new and formal on  the occasion of my visit. Instead  of finding your own way into  the old labyrinth, you had to  stand at a counter, state your  business, and in due course be  ; escorted by a lady receptionist  to your destination. In my case  I was left sin the corridor. My  escort returned with the words  "Mr. McGregor will see you  now" and showed me into a  large room facing on Pender  Street, in which there was only  a very large unencumbered  desk, behind which was seated  my friend. Our greeting was  most unconventional and the  scandalized young lady beat a  retreat. Dan explained that he  had just got into that office and  hadn't got it furnished or the  desk comfortable. He listened to  - my petition, and his Angle was  not an obtuse one, for it brought  a generous donation.  for them to flower the greater  will  be  the  success.   I  prefer  leaving theim until February before bringing them inside.  Once indoors, gradually increase the temperature. Keep  them at 45 to 50 degrees for 10  days and then place in a sunny  window where the temperature  may go to 60 or 70 degrees. At  this point ample supplies of water will be necessary.  To get hyaeint_i blooms to  stand above the foliage, place  cones 12 inches tall, with, four-  inch openings at the tops oyer  large   six-inch   pots.   Inverted  pots over the smaller ones will  suffice. This accelerates the  elongation of the flower stalks  and prevents having blooms that  must peer through the foliage.  Paper-white narcissus should  be given different, treatment,  since these bulbs will not tolerate severe freezing. They should  be planted early. Leave three-  quart^ of the bulbs above the  compost and then place them in  a dark corner of the basement  for two or three weeks or until  growth starts. Then bring them  to a sunny window with a temperature of from 60 to 70 degrees  N.

If you can stitch a  straight seam and do simple  sewing by hand or machine,  you can turn out gifts that are  both appealing and useful.  According -to the Canadian  Cotton Council, the trick;is to  make simple items. . .then apply  cotton rick rack in imaginative  new ways.  Gifts for a tiny baby are always fun to make, and one of  the simplest is a reversible bas  sinet cover. All you need is a  yard of quilted cotton gingham  with solid color backing, jumbo  and baby-size cotton rick rack,  and two-inch wide bias hem  facing.  On the gingham side, attach  jumbo rick rack to the quilting  stitches to form diamond-shaped1  motifs. Then apply baby rick  rack in another diamond pattern  overlapping the first.  Or, sew one for the master  bedroom. Same procedure only  larger quantities of materials  will be needed. Team the quilt  with pillows of the same fabric  for that extra touch of pizazz.

Gibsons council did not deal  with the report made by Director Wolverton at its Tuesday  night meeting.   *  Rate cut helps  Notification from the Bank of  Montreal that the municipal  loan rate will be reduced to iy%  percent from 8 percent effective  Nov. 1 was read out at Tuesday  night's meeting. of council and  received with pieasurer tt was  also hoped that in view of the  cut in interest rate by the Bank  of Canada bringing its rate  down to six percent that another  cut may be expected.  As matters now stand council  has not drawn on its chief money requirement for sewer, construction therefore the interest  cost will be reduced one half  percent with the possibility of a  further reduction.  Hydrants needed  Expansion of Gibsons village  has created the need for more  fire hydrants it was reported at.  the council meeting last week.  Present plans call for the possibility Of three hydrants at needed points.  It was suggested that council  set up a budget in future for  hydrants and it is likely next  year's budget will see the start.  There are points in the village  to be,considered and also Pratt  Road now that it is using village  water!  INQUIRE ABOUT PARK  Use of a park area reserved  for Sechelt municipality by the  provincial government has been  revived with a request from Aid.  Joe Benner that Sechelt's council enquire from Victoria officials as to the present position  of the 172 acres in Block 1472.  This matter was before council  for several meetings some five  or six years ago when it was  proposed as a golf course.  Coast News, Nov. 18, 1970.       3  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  Mr. and Mrs. T. Kolstee, of  Vancouver, have bought property on Crow Road.  Mr. and Mrs. Ben Fellowes  celebrated their wedding anniversary on Sunday when they  entertained friends and relatives  In Vancouver to attend a family reunion, Mrs. R. G. Sands  met for the first time in 30  years, her brother, George  Parks, of London, England, who  will accompany her on her return to the Creek to continue  their visit..  Amy and Frank Webster of  Toronto, who lived here many  years ago, came to take a quick  look at old, but not familiar,  haunts. They missed the store  at Roberts Creek wharf, and the  cheery whistle of the steamers  as they pulled in for a landing,  the approach being either high  above or far below, according  to the capricious tides; where  passengers stumbled from the  gangplank doubled over with  bags and bundles into the arms'  of friends or relatives, and  where cattle, feed and freight  were swung from the deck and  set down not too gently among  the entire population who gathered there to enjoy the daily  break in their somewhat prosaic lives.  A QUIET HALLOWE'EN  Hallowe'en passed very quietly, Aid. Gerry Dixon reported to  council at Tuesday night's meeting. He said co-operatiori with  police, firemen and others was  excellent. As a result there was  little damage caused by cele-  brators.

New Brownies are:  Shirley Spence, Esther Micfaaud  Laurie Stroanquist, Carrie  Barnes, Louise Youdell and  Mary-Ann Youdell. A second  year star was presented to Elisa  Higgs. This pack is working  without a Tawny Owl. Anyone  willing to help out please contact Mrs. Arlene Wh-te.  Second Gibsons pack had lots  of. fun with gaimes and treats  and ended their evening with an  outdoor peanut scramble. These  Brownies are busy learning new  songs so one can expect to hear  great things.  Third Gibsons Pack not only^  had the girls and their mothers  in costume but fathers too.  When everyone had to feel what  the old witch vwas putting into  her brew, the weaker sex was :  proven not to be the mothers.  Spooky lights, apple dunking  and refreshments topped off the  evening.  On Nov. 9, mothers and fathers again were invited to-  watch Barbara Jackson, Jacqueline Gaines, Nadine Smethurst,  Kathy McPhee, Annette Bob,  Elizabeth Egan, Josephine Hog-  berg, June Mandelkau and Jennifer Dickson change fro m  Tweenies to Brownies. They received their pins and emblems  from the comimiissioner and the  grand howl from the pack.  On Nov. 13, six girls who are  flying up to the 2nd Guide Company were treated to dinner at  the Coast Inn. In uniform for  the event were Cindy Beaudry,  Lynn Wheeler, Janet Dupuis,  Colleen Hoops, Janet MacKay  and Dawn Blakeman.  iFirst Roberts Creek pack had  an unusual and interesting outing recently when they watched  the salmon going up Roberts  Creek:- The girls then" got" busy  during their meeting and made  their Hallowe'en masks and  costumes. Mrs. Ann Thompson  is in need of a helper for this  pack.  First Gibsons Guides were  watched by their fairy godmother and the commissioner while  the frolicked in Hallowe'en costumes and filled their tummies  with goodies. Scariest costume  was worn by Kerry Mahlman,  fanciest by Laurel Davidson and  most original by Iris Veedoy.  Second Gibsons Guides had  an original idea for Hallowe'en  costumes when, like musical  chairs, each girl took an article  out of various paper bags. Every item they got had to be put  on   over the  last  one  and no  doubt some funny sights emerged. The district commissioner  wore her own costume so was  saved from the bags.  Glenda Davies, Brenda Rot-  luff and Maria Rinaldis prepared the refreshments in order to  earn their hostess badges and  baking was brought by CamiUe  Turnyk to earn "her baker'��  badge.  :�� Third Gibsons Guides had  Kerry Mahlman, the company  leader, dressed as a scarecrow  in the middle of the hall and she  was so realistic all the bats and  crows flew out of the hall leaving the girls to enjoy games,  ghost stories and treats. The  spooky evening was also enjoyed  by Commissioner Mrs. Wheeler  and Godmother Mrs. Meredith.  Prizes for costumes went to  Yvonne Inglis for the funniest  land Heather Reid for most original.  Any ladies willing to help with  the various packs and companies are asked to call the leaders or Mrs. Wheeler. The  Brownies motto is 'Lend a Hand'  and mothers are.asked to do the  same. The L.A. to Guides and  Brownies meets on the third  Tuesday of every second month  in the Anglican Church Hall, the  next  one   being  in  December.  Mothers are urged to attend. ���  During   the   next   couple   of Let your vision be world em-  weeks, Brownies and Guides will bracing rather than confined to  be selling Girl Guide calendars yo��r own self.  to help everyone get ready for         phone 886-2078 or 885-2885  1971. _.    1  VAftJ���OUV��lr$      -"        :/'     ,,  &AStm & im HAHCOCK pitsmi  lilt UlltDERIIiSS  PENDER HARBOUR SECONDARY SCHOOL  WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2  All showings'8 p.m. Adults $2, OAP & Students $1  We pay highest cash prices for furniture  2nd hand items of all kinds  The RENTAL SHOP'S  Second Hand Store  8S15-2848 or 885-2151  Why do so many  coin laundries use Speed Queen?

The noise, dust, traffic,  disfigurement of the countryside, and pollution of fresh and  salt water resulting from such  a project would be extremely  detrimental to this locality which  is being inereasi-ig-y used as a  tourist, retirement and residential area.

The scow loading and gravel stripping operations will adjoin the beach and woodland  park (D.L. 1557) purchased by  the parks branch in 1966, rendering the park site useless for  its original purpose.  3.

The nomination-  paper shall be delivered to the Returning Officer at any  time between the date of this notice and noon of the day  of nomination. The nomination-paper may be in the form  prescribed in the Municipal Act, and shall state the  name, residence, and occupation of the person nominated  in such manner as to sufficiently identify such candidate.  The nomination-paper shall be subscribed to by the candidate. The procedure for the election is contained in  Part III of the Municipal Act.  In the event of a poll being necessary, such poll will be  opened at:���  Polling Station  Halfmoon Bay Elementary School  West Sechelt Elementary School  Roberts Creek Elementary School  Hopkins Community Hall  on the 12th day of December, 1970, between the hours of  eight (8) o'clock in the forenoon and eight ,(8) o'clock in the  afternoon, of which every person is hereby required to take  notice and govern himself accordingly.  Given under by hand at Davis Bay this 16th day of November, 1970.  Greg E. Girard  Returning Officer  Electoral Area  "B"  "B"  "D"  "IT"  ters Porpoise Bay at approximately the beach boundary of  the park and the gravel loading  site. Both the salmon and herring face destruction if these  facilities are built and tugs and  scows are moving about.  4. Any areas on these gravel  ridges not suitable for residential use could provide a continuing source of forest products,  and outdoor recreation such as  hiking, hunting, etc., and preserve our area intact for the future.  Sirs: This letter states our objections to the proposed gravel  industry and foreshore loading  installations in Porpoise Bay on  the north borderline of the government park.  We have been owners of waterfront property in Porpoise  Bay for three generations and  have operated for the past eight  years as Porpoise Bay Campsites and Recreational Marine  Parks, (D.L. 1558) comprising  approx. 100 acres by ^ mile wa-  . terfront; and adjoining the south  border of the said government  park (D.L. 1557) being approximately 160 acres.  We sold this 160 acres of parkland to the Parks Branch some  four years ago for the stated  purpose of a public recreational  park and campsite; and public  funds were used to purchase this  pari, for these purposes. To  break faith with the public and  down-grade this park site by  permitting the very worst type  of industry ��� gravel stripping  and scow loading installation,  right on the park borderline and  beach-front, is beyond comprehension. Why there has apparently been no objection from the  parks branch is puzzling.  The-natural reason the public desire these wilderness parks  is to get away from the noise  and pollution of t crowded, places  and particularly of industry. For  the tourist to arrive here and  find he is in the midst of a huge  land and marine gravel industry, would be devastating.  For simplification we list our  objections as follows:  " "LOCATION: The establishing  of a gravel industry bordering  the land and beach boundary  line of the government park  could only result in defeating  the purposes for which the park  was acquired.  POLLUTION: The pollution  from outflow, tug-boat and scow  manjoeuvering, material spillover, gravel-washing effluent  (particle suspension) would result in the pollution of the whole  bay area. Porpoise Bay being  the end "of Sechelt Inlet, once  polluted would never recover, as  there is no tidal flow flushing  action, merely a tidal rise and  fall.  SWIMMING AND BOATING":  The proposed' area for scow-  loading is so confined, the tugs  and scows would necessarily  have to manoeuvre in the waters fronting the park. This  would- greatly depreciate the  swimming and boating, and the  general appearance from the  land.  SALMON SPAWNING: Angus  Creek flows  out into  Porpoise  Bay at approximately the boundary line of the park and the  proposed    gravel    installation.  This   is   a   registered   salmon-  spawning  stream and the  fishi  gather at the mouth waiting for  suMc-ent water before going up  to spawn. Porpoise Bay is also '  an Important herring spawning -:  area which would be seriously ���  threatened.  RESORT   &   RESIDENTIAL:  There  are  many resort  subdi- .  visions and residences in Porpoise Bay. Many lovely homes ���.  and   resorts   have   been   built. :  These people purchased proper:'  ty here with the specific purpose in mind of getting to an  unspoiled, unpolluted area, on  (both land and sea, and we are  sure they would all voice their  objections to the gravel industry at their front door if they  were aware of the fact.  AESTHETICS, TOURISM,  RECREATION: Gravel mining,  above all other mining methods,  is in its very nature strip-anining  in its worst form, creating vast  scars on the landscape and in  this particular area, within view  of most vantage points, land,  marine and air, the while destroying land far better suited to  human habitation and recreational use.  To accept the short view of  the fast buck for a few jobs in  a specialized industry, against  the long view of the tourist and  recreational industry, current  and potential, which is virtually  here and now heading into a  boom,'would be a short-sighted  policy indeed.  We should not let ourselves be  enticed or lulled into a false  sense of security by any promises relating to restorative  measures wthieh^ are generally  hazy and unenforceable in any  case.  ���B. L. Crowston, president,  Doris F. Crowston, sec.-Tr.  Porpoise Bay Estates Ltd.  Sir: The Sunshine Coast Environment Protection Society  would like to express its concern and to protest in the strongest terms to the operation of any  major gravel pit on the Sunshine  Coast. It seems to us to be unfortunate that the people objecting most strongly to these operations do not pool their resources and act in unison to achieve  their objectives.  Is it not about time that the  people of this area started to  think about their environment,  not in .terms of dollars and  cents, but rather from the fact  that it exists and that we as  residents have the privilege of  living here? It does not take  any intelligent imagination to  { realize the fact that we are only  I hero on a very temporary basis,  however long that may sometimes appear to be; and surely  this does not give anyone the  right to destroy forever our natural surroundings?  People will argue that this is  going to bring employment to  the area and that the prospects  for the future look very favorable, -but do they ever stop to  think just what kind of a mess  this gravel pit operation is going  to produce and that it is quite  conceivable that the tourist business which we are supposed to  be encouraging, could be badly  harmed for ever, because it  must be fairly obvious that tourism and gravel pits do riot mix,  however much supervision might  be enforced.  Has the idea ever occurred to  those people who advocate the  growth of this area in terms of  bringing families in from elsewhere to operate the gravel pits,  that perhaps the very fact of  the pits being there will frighten  more people away who would  otherwise consider taking up res  idence on a permanent basis,  simply because of the loss in  land and property values? It  should not be too difficult to  project the future growth of this  area and compare it with the  number of people who would be  brought in as a result of the  employment created by the gravel pits. The results might be  quite enlightening.  Most people on the Sunshine  Coast are unfortunately unaware  of just how big an operation  this is going to be. Would it not  be a good idea to publish the de-  tails of both operations in the  local newspapers with a map in-  O.E.S.  BAZAAR and TEA  Roberts Creek Community Hall  November 21 ��� 2 to 4 p.m.  dicating the area to be affected  and the implications they are  likely to have on the whole  area?  There is no. doubt in anybody's  mind that some kind of light industry with a potential for employing the local people would  be an. asset on the Sunshine  Coast, but let us not grab with  both hands the first offer that  comes along without giving it  very careful thought, weighing  all the pros and cons and letting  the people decide what they  want for their area instead of  being told by big industry and  financial concerns what is good  ior them. There are many, perhaps well meaning citizens who  still think they are living in an  age that existed 10 or 20 years  ago. This kind of bulldozing (forgive the pun) operation was acceptable then, hut times have  changed and it is time for these  people to waken up to realities  and realize that the ordinary  man on the street does have a  right to be heard and even taken notice of.  The SCEPS fully endorses the  stand taken by the Selma Park  Community association and the  residents of the Porpoise Bay  area and feel that they have  done an admirable job in their  presentation which deserves full  and immediate consideration by  those concerned both on the regional level and also on the provincial level.  ���John Hind'-Smith, secretary,  S.C.E.P.S.

Point of law  SUNSHINE COAST DIRECTORY  (By   a   Practicing Lawyer)  Human rights are very much  in the news and the following  are some fundamental human  rights now protected by the Human Rights Act.  No employer or anyone acting on his behalf can discriminate between his male and female einpldyees by paying a female employee at a rate of pay  less than the rate of pay paid to  a male employee employed by  him for the same work or substantially the same work done  in the same establishment.  Skiers check  equipment as  snow increases  (By DR.  PETER ANDREWS  President, Canadian Ski Assoc.  Western Division  The first snows have hit the  mountains and skiers are anxiously looking over last season's  equipment to see if it will hold  out for another year.  Don't forget how important it  is to have the correct tension  on safety bindings ��� or they  will not be safety bindings. Most  ski shops have a device for  checking the tension of toe and  heel pieces for the correct  height, weight and ability of the  skier. If you are not \ certain  yours are properly adjusted,  take them1 in now.  Instructors' courses have been  going on wherever there has  been snow. Grouse Mountain  Ski School started on-snow training in September! The ASI and  GSI courses are taking place  this month at Sunshine Village,  near Banif, and will draw instructors from all over B.C. and  Alberta to get their certification.  And scheduled between the  two courses is the Molstar Pacie-  setter Race when the, 25 top ski  school heads will race against  each other to set a par for Molstar Standard races in Western  Canada. Who will it be, Jim Mc-  Conkey, Ornulf Johnsen, Al Men-  zies or Dave Brewer?  It's interesting to see the  great job done at Grouse and  Whistler this year with the summer grooming program. Let's  hope the winter grooming will  complement these vastly improved runs. Both area management are to be congratulated  for a fine job in looking after  the recreational skier.  New ski films being shown  throughout B.C.: Once in a lifetime, the new Dick Barrymore  production highlighting the 1970  world championships at Val Gar-  dena; The World of World Cup,  featuring the Du Maurier Cup  in Vancouver and Experience in  Slow Motion, a brilliant new concept in ski photography.  , All proceeds from the film  showings will go to the National  Ski Team.

This was done rather than  sending Christmas cards locally,  so that some less fortunate may  better enjoy his or her Christmas and possibly appreciate  that Christ did not die in vain  after all.  This small group has been  growing each year so this letter is directed to any and all  who wish to contribute in this  manner to ensure that more and  more people will have a> happier  and brighter, Christmas as it  was intended1.  This year's proceeds will go  to our local Senior Citizens  Fund sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Kiwanis club.  Those desiring to join us,  please contact Mrs. M. Holland  at 886-9513 or Mrs. D. Wright  at 886-7779 or, money can be  deposited in Gibsons Christmas  Card Fund at the Bank of Montreal. Such donation must be in  by Friday, Dec. 18 and signed  as you would like your name to  appear.  Let your vision be world embracing rather than confined to  your own self.
