Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Number 2, January 13, 1971  10c per copy  ; m <���:.. ii  Petition started by may or  _say Henry road residents  Mayor Wally Peterson's remark to Gibsons aldermen at  last week's council meeting that  .there were two petitions iri the  hands of Dick Blakeman and  Jtforman Stewart concerning the  .inclusion   of  Henry  Road  area  ,>vithin the village has-.resulted in  a reply from Mr. Blakeman, as  ^follows;.. -Xj'.X.x " .  7Git>sQnXVillage Council,  .Gibsons; B.C;     .7  Dear*;Sir$: In order to clarify a~  .statement which was made in  last week's Coast News, I wish  to .submit the following:  GIBSONS COUNCIL, for 1971,  taken at their inaugural meeting. Left to Right, Municipal  Clerk Dave Johnston, Aldermen  Gerry Dixon and Charlie Mandelkau, Mayor Peterson, Aldermen Ken Goddard and Ken Crosby, Jiudge Mittlesteadt and Rev.  Jim Williamson.         Board retains  its chairman  School Trustee Mrs. Sheila Kit-  son was re-elected chairman of  the school board at the inaugural 1971 meeting Thursday night  of last week. Nominated by Trus  tee William Malcolm, Mrs. Kit-  son retained her chairmanship  by acclamation.  7 When it came to selecting a  vice-chairman to toe iri the chair  when the chairman could not be'  : present,^ Titi^  mated Trustee Mrs. Ar __abohte,  last year's holder of that position. "Mrs. 7 Kitson nominated  Trustee Mulligan. A 'secret ballot revealed a tie. The appointment was then dropped until the  board had a full slate of trustees, one seat still being open  as the result of no nominations  for election day. '.  ���Supt.-R..'R. Hanna was chairman for the elections. Then  Chairman Mrs. Kitson took over  and the next order of business  was to make a recommendation  to the minister of education  from three names presented to  fill the vacant Sechelt Rural  seat. Those seeking to fill the  seat were John Hayes, trustee  for six months filling in when  Rev. Barry Jenks left for Nanaimo; Don Pye, a retired ROMP  residing in Secret Oove area  and P. L. Frescenky, Halfmoon  Bay. Mr. Hayes sought the Sechelt nomination but was rejected on a technicality and by law  could not seek nomination elsewhere.  Procedure became entangled  and discussion on how to proceed ended with a secret ballot  on,.the three names. What happened? ��� a tie vote, two for  each candidate. Procedure again  was, examined and another secret ballot was taken with the  f-esult-that John Hayes was chosen. The board's "recommendation Will go to the minister of  education for Msi approval before Mr. Hayes takes his seat  as trustee.  Safety first  Troubles which originated at  the source of the manufacture  of beams in the new Trail Bay  store has forced some strengthening of them as the result of  the snow, which has piled up on  most roofs.  Dick Clayton, proprietor of the  shopping centre has informed  ���the "Coast News that what is being done at the request of the  manufacturer oif the beams is to  5hpre them up until the limit of  stresses on them can be ascertained. Mr. Clayton was of the  opinion the store would be opened again by Wednesday afternoon as the shoring work is not  expected to take up much time.  ������''S'N*'^  Cable Vision seeks new site  THE COLD' WEATHER has not  been all bad for everyone. These  students at Gibsons Elementary  Coast Cable Vision has announced the company plans to  erect additional towers on the  upper slopes of Mount Elphinstone, in its efforts to stabilize  signals from most distant TV  stations.  The Cable Vision towers are  presently located at the 2,400  foot level but tests made on foot  and with special snow-tracked  vehicles along with additional  surveys by plane indicate that  further towers should be erected  much higher up on the mountain, possibly at the 3,200 foot  level.  The decision to climb higher  up the mountain is based upon  this winter's experience with  some of the signals which have  demonstrated a type of selective  fading under certain weather  conditions. A Cable Vision  spokesman has indicated that a  permanent solution to this problem cannot be developed until  the show which now surrounds  the , existing site to a depth of  some seven feet has melted.  The two special four-wheel  drive vehicles used by Coast Cable Vision to reach antenna  sites during most months of the  past year have been unable to  adequately cope with the deep  snow which now blankets the  upper slopes. '  During recent weeks the Cable Vision company has been  testing a double-tracked vehicle  in an effort to locate a reliable  means of reaching both upper  antenna sites, at Gibsons and  Sechelt, regardless of snow  depths or weather conditions.  The most recent trials have  been quite encouraging and have  shown considerable promise.  Further tests are being considered.  Once the deep snows have  melted away and -milder weather  returns to the mountain areas  much additional work is expected to  get under  way  quickly.  New signal surveys which were  commenced in the fall and further in-depth testing will be resumed. It is hoped this may provide for the reception of more  stable, non-fading signals from  the Seattle TV stations to be delivered to Gibsons area sub  scribers by cable.  School, with the help of Mr.  John Ayris, flooded the enclosed area between the two school  buildings, in hope of making a  skating rink. The operation was  ���not too sucessful, as falling snow  prevented the ice from freezing  properly. They are going to try  again whn it stops snowing.  Sewers in loan financing  Gibsons has filed with the department of municipal affairs in  Victoria its application to have  included in rbe federal government's $35,000,000 loan for B.C.  municipal purposes, the cost of  the   sewage   system   amounting  Plenty of snow  A snowfall ranging from six  inches or more in Gibsons area  and up to 20 inches at some  points in Sechelt and Pender  Harbour areas has slowed Sunshine Coast traffic somewhat but  has not created too much havoc,  judging by reports from the  roads department, the SMT bus  line and Dick Kennett, local  weatherman.  However it was thought best  owing to secondary and other  roads being troublesome to some  traffic, that schools in West Sechelt, Madeira Park and Pender Harbour be closed until bus  travel becomes more reliable  for'the" youngsters. If the snow  lets up within 24 hours the closed schools could be open by  Thursday.  Bus schedules have been slowed down because of traffic blocks  on highways where bald tires  on cars were to blame.  FALSE ALARM  Sunday evening's fire call was  the result of an accidental tripping of the mechanism causing  it to sound. Firemen investigated and rectified the situation.  to $845,000 including the secondary treatment plant.  This was announced at the  last meeting of council when discussion arose from an earlier  letter in which Minister Dan  Campbell asked municipalities to  put in applications for consideration. Council had already sent  a 'letter asking that the 15 year  loan terms be extended to 25  years. No return correspondence  was before council but Clerk David Johnston said that as a result of telephone conversations  he had verbal assurance that  consideration was being given  to extension of the loan period.  It was suggested such extension  could be handled by extending  debentures issued on a 15 year  basis for another ten years after the 15 year period had expired.  In the financing of the sewer  loan it is expected that $264,000  would come through federal government OMHC sources.  SURPLUS LIKELY  The school board is undergoing its annual budget throes and  Secretary-treasurer J. S. Metzler at last Thursday night's  boai-d meeting cheered board  members up by stating that he  expected there would be a surplus for a second year, but he  could not name a figure as the  budget was by no means complete.  iHiutuiiiunfflrarauui��n.raraumiuuunmiuuimmnrairaniii  It is true that a petition is in  my hands. However, said, petition was brought to my home  by Mayor Peterson, requesting  that I circulate same and solicit  names of persons wishing tp be  included in the village. At no  time did I request that Henry  road be made a. part of the Village of Gibsons.  ���Dick Blakeman,  R.R. 1, Henry Road.  Norman Stewart, the second  man named by Mayor Peterson  informed the Coast News that he  agrees with what Mr. Blakeman  has said in his letter and that it  applies equally to him.  The following letter by John  Hind-Smith was written on Jan.  8 to Hon. Dan Campbell, Minister oif Municipal Affairs:  Sir: As a property owner who  would be affected by the proposed expansion of the village of  Gibsons I would like to make a  few comments which might be of  interest to the people concerned  and maybe to the people of Gibsons.  It seems a very strange way  of conducting affairs when the  mayor makes a personal visit to  two property owners in the area  concerned. and gives them peti-  tions which they are supposed to  take around and obtain signatures.  It also strikes me. as very  strange that the aldermen of  Gibsons are not aware of the  actions of the mayor. This was  evident from the remarks made  ;jby Ald(.r_han:Crpsby in connection with Tthe letter-written-by  Mrs. Kitson trying to get. information about the council's intentions when he admitted that  he knew nothing about What was  going on.  One would have thought that  anyone being asked to sign a petition would have been given  some information first in order  to assist him or her in making  up their minds on a matter of  this sort. Perhaps I am misinterpreting the Municipal Act, but  Sec. 21, Para 2 (c) states that if  a village wants to extend its  boundaries, a declaration of the  intent to petition must appear in  the B.C. Gazette and a local  newspaper and to my knowledge  this has not been done.  The editor of the Coast News  in the editorial of Jan. 6 touched  on the point of the likelihood of  the population exceeding 2,500 if  this expansion took place. If this  occurs then the village becomes  a town and as such is responsible for various services, at present paid for by Victoria. These  of course would have to be borne  by the taxpayers of the whole  town and the taxes of the village  of Gibsons would go up accordingly.  The services involved would  be:  (a) Welfare ��� of which I believe 2ft% has to be paid for by  the town. Quite a considerable  amount here I should think.  (b) The police, station and  staff.  (c) Administration of justice.  (d) Road maintenance and  services affiliated with the  roads, street lighting, etc.  There are, no doubt, some advantages to this proposed expansion scheme both to the village  of Gibsons and the property owners located in the area. So far  I have failed to see what they  are, at least in so far as the taxpayers are concerned. Perhaps  when the questions put by Mrs.  Kitson in her letter are .satisfac-; -  torily answered the reasons will  be made clear, but until they  are how can anyone be expected  to come up with an intelligent  decision?  I hope, sir, that you are the  person who can clarify these  questions and tell us just what  is going on around here.  ���J. Hind-Smith.  Park now rural project  Gibsons Rural Centennial '71  Committee has received official  word from L. J. Wallace, chairman of the B.C. Centennial committee that their commemorative project has been approved  by the committee and the secretary of state, and they will receive both federal and provincial  grants for this project.  '  The approval for a total of  $5,000 is structured thus: Local  contribution must equal $2,020,  guaranteed; the federal $1,490  and provincial $1,480 based on  the official figure of $1 per capita of 1490 residents of Electoral  Area E. The figure of $5,000 estimate of costs for completion was  reached by several expert opinions and verified by facts and  figures.  As this is a Centennial project  and the work must be done for  the most part by volunteer labor, services, materials and contributions of cash, Mrs. M. Moorcroft and Mrs. J. Mahlman set  out to approach residents with  pledges. They were overwhelmed by the response they met not  only in their own area, but were  approached with offers outside  the district.  Mrs. Moorcroft, project chairman, will be in charge of project  work and will call on these  pledges to be fulfilled when the  need arises. Work will begin as  soon as weather permits and a  Construction sign will be the  first _t��p; the last will be the  placing of a carved log sign with  the Chaster Park name on it.  These signs are both donations  and beautifully done.  How did it all begin? On May  22, when the Centennial committee was formed at a public  meeting, the committee asked to  take on as the project, a portion of Ocean Beach Esplanade  at Gower Point, where the cairn  stands, to be made into a park.  It was the wish of Mr. James  Chaster, the original owner, that  this would be a park for all to  enjoy and the cairn marks the  spot where Capt. Vancouver  landed in June, 1792, so it would  be a worthwhile project for Centennial year.  Attempts have been made in  the past 20 years to make this"  into a park but have failed, and  Hon. Isabel Dawson became interested through letters sent to  her by interested residents. This  too seemed to have met with  little response, even though Mrs.  Dawson worked hard on behalf  of the res-idents.  After several executive meetings, personal discussions with  residents at Gower Point, a meet,  ing with the Gower Point Property Owners Association, and a  public meeting at the proposed  site of the park, it was agreed  by the majority that the Centennial committee would go  ahead and make it their permanent commemorative project.  More than a full time job then  began for the secretary, Mrs.  Joan Mahlman.  Mr. Ahrens, director of parks  branch, dept. of recreation and  (Continued on Page 4)  McClure on TV  Dr. Robert McClure retires on  Jan. 26 as the first lay moderator of the United Church of Canada and the CBC has invited him  to be the guest on its popular  nation-wide television show Man  Alive. He will be interviewed by  United Church layman, Roy Bon-  isteel, and will talk about his  experiences as moderator, over  the past 29 months; what hangups he sees in the church, and  what solutions he suggests.

Beyond the School act  Minutes of meetings usually are prosaic and those Of the last  school board meeting are no exception. Here is what the minutes  recorded; on the operation of the board:  "R. R. Hanna, district superintendent of schools, called the  meeting to order, expressing thanks to the retiring trustees, Dr.  Walter Burtnick, Mr. J. D. Ganshorn and Mr. W. P. Malcolm for  their work during their tenure and congratulating the newly elected  trustees. Mr. Hanna outlined the role and responsibilities of the  school trustees, the role and position of the district superintendent  and the organization of the school district."  The above is the official view of what occurred. Here ds an unofficial view:  After reading various sections of the School Act, explaining what  they meant thereby warning that there were rules in the game of  being a school trustee, he branched out into something more philosophical. He recited the Lewis Carroll You are Old, Father William, from Alice in Wonderland, as follows:  You are old, Father William, the young man said  And your hair has become very white;  And yet you incessantly stand on your head,  Do you think at your age this is right?  In my youth, Father William replied to his son,  I feared it might injure the brain,  But now that I am perfectly sure I have none  Why I do it again and again.  His implied advice was there would be times! when trustees  would think they were standing on their heads.  And the editor adds this comment: New trustees will some-  limes wonder whether it is officialdom (not on the Sunshine Coast)  that is^in the habit of standing on its head.  Department store governing  The future role of the federal, government in ^agriculture will  almost certainly revolve airoundprograms andpolicies designed to  ; assist in farm adjustment. So say economists Dr. G. R. Purnell,  director general of the Canada ��� Department of Agriculture Economics branch and V. A. Heighton, a research specialist in the same  branch. They say that adjustment is essential to meet goals; needed  to solve the many problems facing agriculture as a result of economic and technological changes. 1  The above will not make much impression on people of British  Columbia but it does point up the fact that the federal government  is now operating with far greater emphasis on our daily lives. This  should mean more attention must be paid to what our legislators  are doing in Ottawa.  If one looked back to the days when government was purely a  governing unit and was not forced into the position of taking over  so many things within our economy one would have to go back a  little further than the depression days of the thirties. Since that  period we have had baby bonuses, pensions, unemployment insurance, housing under the' Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation, hospitalization, numerous Crown corporations and a mnltipli-  city of other boards.  Therefore it would be better if all adults were to take a closer  look at what the government is forced to do beyond the point of  strictly governing. There was a time when to think of a "federal  government going into the home construction field would be just a  dream. However the dream evaporated and the government is now  the biggest home builder in the country.  It may be for the best but one wonders.

Work is expected to start some  time this month on the West Sechelt Waterworks system.  One hundred and six new  homes were built in the Sunshine  Coast area during 1965, costing  in the region of $1,500,000.  Fred Allnutt, editor of the Local 297 Guardian wrote the following article on education for  the Sechelt Teachers' Association publication The Courier. It  has attracted such attention that  the Coast News is offering it to  its readers.  FROM MY VIEW POINT  The rapid technological changes of the past 70 years and the  radical social changes they have  spawned, have exerted tremendous pressures on the educational facilities and the educators  of the world. It should not be  overlooked however that these  same pressures have been felt  by parent and student alike.  Many    of    today's    -parents,  brought up in a *much simpler  time, when career opportunities  were  strictly  limited  are  only  vaguely aware of the scope of  the' changes   that   have   taken  place,   and   the   stresses   these  changes have exerted on the educational system. These parents  were educated and began work  ' in an era when a man arrived at  his vocation by a hit and miss  method,  floundering  around in  the dark, hoping sooner or later  to stumble upon some suitable  job. They are almost totally unaware of the complexity of the  job   market,   or   the   resulting  coimiplexity of education today.  At best they can hardly be expected to have enough information available to do even a mediocre job of steering their children   down  a  road,   that   will,  hopefully, lead them through the  shoals of education and finally  career selection to a rewarding  and fulfilling vocation.  The advent of the complicated  industrial society in which we.  live and its resulting emphasis  on specialization has meant that  a typical student must have  vastly more knowledge -of what  is available to him in the way of  a career, what will be required  of him educationally, to prepare  himself for such a career and  what educational opportunities  are available to him than did his  parents.  "As a.trade-unionist I am concerned that not enough is. being  done to make our young people  a ware of the opportunities available as tradesmen and technicians. They are not all equipped  either mentally, temperanentally  or financially to go to university. A university degree must  not be looked upon as the only  route leading to a highly remunerative career and a heaping  spoonful oif the good life. The  educational choices available  are becoming as diverse as the  career opportunities they are being tailored' to fill, stretching  across the spectrum from on the  job training at one end through  various vocational and technical  institutes to university training  at the other end.  It is becoming more and more  important to realize that all the  types of higher education have a  place in our society and a huge  effort is needed to make all the  pertinent information regarding  them available to our young people and to guide them down the  correct road of learning.  Our present system appears  to head the student toward university, then if he falls by the  wayside, for one reason or another, he is abandoned and left  to his own devices. All of us.  business men, union men, and  educators must impress upon  them, and indeed1 have a responsibility to do our part to make  them aware that there are opportunities as tradesmen and  technicians and to make them  aware of the type of training  available to them.  Far too many of the young  people I come across in my  trade union affiliations know  how much education is required  to become a doctor or lawyer  and they are aware of the menial jobs at the other end of the  scale but they, have almost no  knowledge of the wide variety"  of vocations lying between these  two extremes. They ask mainly  three questions ��� (1) What jobs  are available; (2) What do these  About  geas  (By A. R. BUCKLEY,;  Plant Research Institute;  Ottawa.)  Members of the hydrangea  family range from tender to extremely hardy plants. All can be  depended upon to produce many  weeks of conspicuous flowering  when most other shrubs have  long finished. They vary in  height from small shapely three  foot plants to large 15 to 20 foot  specimens. Most are shrubby,  one is often trained as a tree  and one is graceful and dependable climbing plant.      ,  The most common hydrangea  is probably the Pee Gee hydrangea which fonms a broad shrub  or small tree to 15 feet high and  bears huge .panicles of all-sterile white flowers in August and  September. These flowers eventually change to rosy pink, then  later to green and finally to deep  brown, a reason why the plant  is often referred to as the four-  seasons plant. The blooms are so  persistant after flowering that  they can be used as winter arrangements, if dried first by  hanging them in a shed by their  stalks.  Next to the Pee Gee hydrangea in, popularity is the Snow-  hill hydrangea, a common name  shortened from the original com  mon name, Hills-of-Snow. This  grows to about four feet high  and has .flowers in large clusters six inches or more in diameter. It usually blooms in July  from new wood that springs up  from its old shoots or from the  base. Pruning (back hard each  spring produces a dwarfer compact plant with much larger  flowers. Annabelle is a very  much improved cultivar with  more rounded blooms on much  stiff er stems.  The oak-leaved hydrangea is  less commonly grown than the  others, but is quite distinct for  its coarse leaves are shaped  very much like those of the red  oak. It often grows to six feet .  in congenial climates, but in \  most areas where it is hardy it  grows three or four feet high.  The flower clusters are quite  conspicuous in July when ends  of the branches have not been  injured by winter cold, but its  interesting foliage is its best asset   for landscape planting.   It  withstands some winters at Ottawa, but needs a well prepared  soil with ample humus and some  shade. -  The shaggy hydrangea is a  very rugged shrub growing 10 to  12 feet high and up to 10 feet  wide. It flowers profusely from  mid June to late July, and although the flowers are not as  showy as the Snowhill or Pee  Gee hydrangea, they are so  abundant and on such strong  stems that the overall effect is  often better.  The leaves of this species are  oblong to ovate from three to  five inches long and one to two  and a half inches wide, rounded  or wedge-shaped at the base.  The texture is much heavier and  more dominant than that of the  Snowhill hydrangea and they  have a much deeper green coloring. The flowers which start a  dullish white change to bright  deep rose and stay on the plants  almost until September. It is a  good hardy vigorous shrub with  a broad round outline and useful for the sun and shade alike.  Labor scene  A recent provincial department of labor summary of activities of the Labor Relations  board reported the followin  peal from a decision:  Eurocan Pulp and Paper Company Limited, Vancouver and  United Paper Makers and Paper Workers, Local 180:  The trade-union appealed from  the board's decision of Sept. 1,  1970, wherein the board ordered  decertification' of the trade union  for paper machine room employees; paper finishing employees;  stock preparation employees and  pulp and paper testers at Kitimat.  After considering submissions  of the trade-union and the employer, and a report on the investigation, the board granted  the appeal and cancelled its decision of Sept. 1,1970. Thereafter  the board ordered certification  of United Paper Makers and Paper Workers; Local 180, for paper machine room employees;  paper finishing employees; technical control employees -and  beater room employees at Kitimat.  igap-  jobs entail; .(3) Where and how  can I obtain training for them.  They often claim they are unprepared for this type of higher  education.  I hope, that because of the  complexity Of this problem and  its importance to industry, that  ���we will see in the near future a  fu_l"measure sof co-opeiat-bn between business, labor and our  educators to make it possible to  provide all students with the  most comprehensive possible  career counselling. Counselling  that will give the student the information he needs about what  is available, but also a firm indication of where he would be  most likely to succeed.  **0*0+0*0*0+0*0*0*^^tW*0*0*0*0m0*  N.

Professor Poole  knows the business world from  fedth the academic and practical side. His objective com-  inents are worth reading.  PROF. POOLE: The editors of  the Harvard Business Review  asked the same question. They  found that 85% of businessmen  did not think that eliminating advertising would change the cost  of products.  Here's the crux of the problem:  advertising is one factor���and  frequently a rather small factor-  that determines how a product is  gold. It's a selling tool. Like salesmen, store displays, packages, the  type of store it's sold in, and so  forth.  If you eliminated advertising���  the other selling factors would  play a larger role. Isn't it logical  that a manufacturer would havtt  to add more salesmen or build  bigger store displays or find som��  other ways to' compete? Probably  the new methods wouldn't be at  effective and they could be mot*  costly.

Canadian Advertising Advisory Board: we work for better advertising. The recent announcement of  progress in the plan to-introduce  a voluntary system of care labelling for textiles is certainly  good news for all consumers.  Damaged fabrics have been a  source of costly annoyance for  many years. More recently, dry  cleaners and launderers, as well  as consumers, have had a problem with many of the new synthetics because they did not  know the proper way to treat  them. So for1 all around better  consumer relations, informative  care labelling will be very welcome.  To be fair, some fibre, fabric  and garment manufacturers  have tried' to be helpful. They  give very detailed cleaning instructions on: packages, wrappings or hang-tags, which ��� if  they ever reach the consumer ���  are promptly detached from the  garment and rarely associated  with it again.  For many years the Consumers' Association of Canada has  been stressing that a more logical step would be to have the  instructions permanently attached to the garment by imeans of  a sewn-in label. The association  has been urging manufacturers  .,.���;���*  Cbnsurrters#  news  and   views  by  Consumers' Association of Canada  .j ��������;,<     4  ���*  -e�� T -  LOMBARD  CHAIN SAWS  10%  BHOWUST  SEE THEM AT  Nuts & Bolts  ON THE WHARF  Gibsons  to adopt a standardized set-of  symbols on a small label as a  permanent reminder to the purchaser to dry-clean or wash,  bleach or not as the fabric required. Neither consumers or  manufacturers would want a  large, oversized -label but with  the use of symbols, the consumer could get the message without any language problems. This  type of care labelling has been  in use in Europe for quite some  time now and has proven very  successful.  A Canadian Government Specifications Board committee has  been working on a care labelling  scheme for Canadian consumers  for about six years. The committee is composed of representatives of all phases of the textile industry from fibre producers to retailers, as well as other  interested groups ��� detergent  manufacturers, launderers and  dry-cleaners and members' of  Consumers' Association of Canada.  Progress has been made. Test  methods have been established  and standards set which every  fabric must meet before it can  be labelled with the symbol appropriate to that operation. The  label will apply to the whole article, not just the major component. If a garment is composed of two or more fabrics, each  one must meet the required  standard for the cleaning method recommended. This should  eliminate the horrors of shrinking interlining, bleeding color in  the trim, rusting buttons or a  The  important   point  is  that  VILLAGE OF GIBSONS  DOG LICENCES  Dog owners are reminded that a licence for the year 1971  is now due.

The Registered Nurses Association of British  Columbia believes that health  needs can more effectively and  economically be served by expanding the role of the registered nurse. In taking this stand the  provincial Registered Nurses Association supports the view of  the Canadian Nurses Association  which has urged immediate action to utilize nurse potential to  its fullest capacity in relation to  primary, continuing, preventive  and specialized care.

This was accomplished Nov. 23 when Chaster Park was approved and constituted in Victoria.  The. committee received word  of this Nov. 26 and had to scramble to have all papers and applications ready for the deadline  Nov. 30 for the B.C. Centennial  committee for approval and  grants. In the meantime, federal  and provincial fisheries were  consulted about the creek, dept.  of lands, forests and water resources re foreshore rights, dept  of highways, the regional board  and all the other government  departments have been courteous, co-operative and most helpful.  Boundaries of the park are  from Chaster's fence on the east  and 4th Street oh the west. The  Parks (board has received the  letter of appointment from Minister Kiernan and are as follows:  Mrs. Megan Moorcroft, chairman; members, Mrs. Kay Fisher, Mrs. Rosemary Lawson, Mrs  Carol Sinclair, Mr. George  Doubt, Mr. G. E. Scratchley and  Mr. Cliff Mahlman. These people will be required to operate  and maintain Chaster Park under the Park Act B.C. regulations 227/67.  This completed the permanent  project phase of the committee's  responsibilities. Another important iphase accomplished is the  research for Pioneer Medallions  by Mr. Bob Carruthers who spent  considerable time travelling to  visit many of the oldtimers in  the area to record them. The  Pioneer Dinner and day will be  announced later.  The comimittee is now on events, celebrations and souvenirs!  A meeting was held at the Catholic Church hall, Jan. 9 to bring  the comimittee up to date.  The committee discussed a realignment of responsibilities.  Mrs. L. Alvaro, treasurer, is  waiting for surgery and as a result of this ha& had to give up  her duties as treasurer. Mr. R.  Whitla has had to give up his  role as vice-chairman due to  health. Don Andow, chairman,  felt for personal reasons that  since the project phase was now  complete and had taken a great  deal of his time, he could better  direct his energies towards, the  many facets of the Centennial  events and not carry on as chairman, but become co-ordinator of  special events. The new officers  for 1971 are: Chris Hummel,  chairman; Paul Mulligan, vice-  chairman, Mrs. Joan Mahlman,  secretary-treasurer; Mrs. Jean  Whitla, Mrs. Jean Moore, Mrs.  Lorna Alvaro and Mr. R. Whitla,  members: Don Andow, coordinator.  Mr. and Mrs, Whitla have extended the use of their home for  several meetings of the committee and have been on call at all  times for help tp the other members. Mrs. Alvaro has been instrumental in setting up the financial aspect and outlining monetary procedures.

Don Andow will resume his  duties as co-ordinator and feels  he will have nothing but success in his new position with the  above committees to help him; Editor: In recent edition�� of  the local newspapers, it has  been strongly implied that the  statements made by concerned  parties at Regional Board! meetings, and- at the Selma Park  Community association meetings  in connection with proposed gravel pit operations in Sechelt  area, have been "wild rumors  and ill conceived conjecture" to  quote one paper and unsubstantial statements by another.  The purpose of this letter is  to straighten the facts out and  to inform the public that in fact  Buster Keaton  holds attention  of youngsters  Before the Christmas vacation  pupils of the Gibsons Elementary school were busy with their  seasonal assembly, special films  and a special presentation of the  high school's drama club, The  Little Match Girl and The Christmas Dress.  The one film that caught the  fancy of the pupils was the droll  presentation by Buster Keaton  of a cross-Canada tour by rail;  on a hand car. The slapstick that  fascinated their grandfathers  was not lost on the pupils as  .they chuckled over Keaton's antics.  Programs by pupils were, the  highlight of the term-end activities. Each class in the primary  section of the school, presented  a so nig or a sketch to entertain  the others. The singing was  hearty and the participation  keen. The children especially enjoyed the sketch in song of the  story of the Thnee Pigs.  The fifth year pupils and the  school choir provided the items  for the intermediate program.  The choir presented half a dozen  well prepared songs in a crisp,  clear style and lively manner.  Carols, not often heard such as  the West Indian one, and two  part renditions of Jingle Bells  and Frosty the Snowman put a  new zest into those old favorites.  The fifth year Classes presented  their own version of the Twelve  Days of Christmas by developing their own ideas of costumes  and dances, and even presenting  a troop of well rehearsed pipers.  Much is owed to the hard  working mothers who spent so  much time at the school helping  to put the ideas into actual costumes and props in rather flimsy paper. But the production was  a rousing one for the audience  which didn't have to (be told to  be quiet and listen. Christine Irvine and Carol Daugherty were  the hard-to-please young lady  and the frantic young man presenting twelve sets of gifts.  The pupils also had something  to say when asked on their re-  turn to school: *'l think the choir  was really good but the one song  I do not like is the Coventry  Carol. . .1 also like the plays the  high school put on for us. . .And  we all sang. . .There could have  been a little more effort in some  things, like the student council,  they could have talked louder. . .  In the songs the choir sang there  was no mistakes and no fooling  around. . .1 think the) choir  should sing more often. . .Nearly everyone was in the Twelve  Days of Christmas. The costumes were good. . .And the  council did the Snoopy play ���  I thought itiwas. about hookey  . . .Not all ^the7 costumes were  good, they were all paper...  Our concert was real good. I  liked the choir. . .The plays were  all colorful. . .The plays and the  choir had lots of expression. .~.f  I felt part of something being in-7  the play."  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have yon  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  AL'S USED FURNITURE  Gibsons ��� 886-28121  any information and figures given at Regional meetings have  been statements anade by the  vice-president of Ocean Cement,  Mr. Buchanan, at a meeting with  a locall delegation which included a member of the Sechelt Regional District to Victoria in November 1970, or by their own engineers.  The figures given at the meeting of Ocean Cement with the  Indian Band in Sechelt conflicted sharply with those given at  the meeting in Victoria and even  with those given in the letter addressed to the Regional board  from Ocean Cement. Mr. M. S.  Taylor, general manager, in this  letter refers to speculation regarding figures quoted at various times but it should be pointed out that all the figures mentioned have their origin with the  company themselves, so one can  draw one's own conclusions from  this. Perhaps it is the strategy  Of big business to get controversial arguments going and work  quietly behind the scenes and  finalizing their plans while the  speculation   continues j   or   per  haps it is that the engineers and  planners for the company are  hot thinking on the same wave  length as the company directors.  Another point which should be  drawn to the attention of the  public is that while the company  is in a position to come along to  the Indian Band with models and  plans of the proposed operations,  they are still, according to the  information available, unable to  come to the Regional Board and  state their intentions. It should  be further emphasized that any  gravel removal from Indian land  is a very iminor amount when  compared to the tonnage to be  eventually removed from Crown  Land.   The   public   has   almost  been deliberately guided into believing that gravel removal, processing and loading operations  will be confined mainly to Indian  land and there is a general impression prevailing that nothing  can be done. This is far from  the truth.  Both newspapers inferred that  the concern shown recently by a  group of citizens was unfounded  and was just a flash in the pan.  This is about as far from the  truth as it could be. The battle,  if you care to call it this, has  just begun and you can rest assured that much, much more is  going to be heard about this affair before it is all over.  ���Fact Finding Committee, ap-  Coast News, Jan. 13, 1971.       5  ��� ��� i  ��i p iim ���        ���^imammm  pointed by Selma Park Community Association.

NEW PROTEIN-RICH POWDER  Dr. Moustafa Aref of the Canada Agriculture Food Research  Institute has developed a new  food powder which could find a  market as a human food in many  parts of the world. The product  is a combination of whole soybeans, which are rich in protein, skim milk powder or whey  powder.

The reason far holding the  Anglican General Synod and! the  General Council of the United  Church at the same time and  place, is to make sure the two  national churches will be on the  same time schedule when an  eventual Plan of Union is developed. Thus they would not be  faced with the problem of one  church having to consider such  a plan before the other. He  says, "I think there is general  agreement that, although we are  meeting in the same city and at  the same time, for the most  part, the two national bodies  will function separately. On the  other hand, there is much to be  gained from the information  sharing of the delegates of both  churches."  DR. FRANK E.

How often lawyers are asked  that question. No certain answer  can be given, in ahy case, no  matter how obvious, or certain  it may be to a painty to the lawsuit that the angels are on his  side. If such matters could be  predicted with any degree of  accuracy there would be no need  for a -trial. One answer to the  question is it depends on who  the judge believes.    .  This leads to another question,  how does a judge tell who is  truthful and who is lying? Sometimes this is very difficult. He  has to judge by the witnesses'  demeanour, how they stand up  under cross examination (which  maybe very severe) and all the  surrounding circumstances.  It very seldom occurs that  there aire but two witnesses and  one says one thing and one the  opposite. There are almost always other witnesses or documents or .collateral facts which  will, assist the judge. If, however  the evidence is exactly evenly  balanced on both sides-, -the plain  tiff loses. It is up to him to prove  his case. Every civil case will  be decided according to the preponderance of evidence or the  balance oif probabilities.  Does the number of witnesses  have a bearing? Yes, but quality  is worth more than quantity. One  truthful disinterested witness can  outweigh ten dishonest witnesses  Friendly witnesses often promise one parity much before the  trial but are a great disappointment in court. Many witnesses  intend to color their testimony  or deceive the court but when  they actually arrive in court  their courage deserts them, especially if they have no interest  in the case. It is much easier to  lie in ordinary conversation than  commit perjury in court.

The judge, also gowned, is  seated on a high dais (for psychological effect). The witness  must enter a raised witness box,  make an oath or solemn affirmation, to tell the truth, etc., and  be subject to a rigorous cross  examination designed to explore  to the pitiless light of truth any  contradictions or inaccuracies.  Outright lies are not as common as other forms of deception, exaggerations, evasive answers, poor 'memories or half  truths. These are often less effective than an outright lie. In  any event, the judge is an expert at sizing up people. He has  heard oral evidence from thousands of witnesses over the years  Persons engaged in lawsuits  sometimes deceive their own  lawyers, with the devastating effect that the truth emerges in  court. It would be difficult to  imagine a more foolish action  but it is common. Moreover it  is quite pointless. If the lawyer  knows all the facts beforehand  he can frequently arrange a favorable settlement which is much  better than a lawsuit.  How should a witness answer  questions in court or at an examination ���- for discovery? Few  things are so tiresome as a witness who has not been prepared  for what, to him, may be a  frightening ordeal.  Firstly, speak up ��� speak  loud enough for the court recorder, the lawyers and, above  all, for the judge, to hear you.  If you don't know the answer  to the question say so. If you  don't remember, say so.  Don't be equivocal or waffling  ��� "Let's put it this way- , .", "I  would interpret it like this. . .",  "In my opinion. . ."  Don't wander off the subject,  go back to ancient history, or  give a lengthy narrative where  it is unnecessary ��� answer the  question to the point.  Do not, however, allow cross  examining counsel to force you  to answer a question Yes or No  that cannot be answered in this  fashion. This is an old trick of  counsel. The proper answer is "I  can't answer that Yes or No and  I have to explain it ��� this is  what happened. . ."  Don't allow cross examining  counsel to put words in your  mouth. Think carefully .before  answering. Take all the time you  need. Don't allow yourself to be  interrupted. If cross examining  counsel is not obtaining the answer he seeks he may attempt to  brush your answer aside and interject the next question. You  should say "I haven't finished  answering the last question yet."  The judge will be on your side.  Above all be truthful ��� telling  a lie under oath is perjury. The  immediate result of any attempt  at deception may be most embarrassing and unpleasant.  Cross examining counsel are allowed great latitude in the severity of their questioning. The  chances are thiat any untruthful  witness will be exposed and the  chances are overwhelmingly  against the average witness being successful in any attempt to  outwit trained legal counsel.

It was a well played  game as both teams had several  opportunities to score.  Local 297 opened scoring in the  first half on what appeared to  be an easy stop for the Chessmen goalie, but was misjudged  and bounced over his head into  the goal. Their second goal was  a very fine effort by one of their  forwards as he broke into the  clear and beat goalie Ken Guen-  ther with a good shot.  The game was then put out of  reach for the Chessmen when  they made a defensive error allowing another goal which made  the score 3-0. On the whole it  was a good game watched by  many parents. Larry Lineker  and, Shawn Boyd played very  well for the Chessmen and Gordon Gibb was the outstanding  player for Local 297.

You could only buy natural materials like wool, linen,  silk, and cotton; and practically  everyone knew what to expect  of*-these easy-to-identify fibres.  Today's consumers enjoy all  the benefits of man-made fibres,  but many shoppers are bewildered by hundreds of brand  names which *mean little to them  Confusion exists because over  700' different brand names are  now on the market. But there  are, in fact, only 17 types of  man-made fibres.  Here is a list of the 17 generic  or family names that manufacturers will use for man-made  fibres. Some may be familiar:.  others may not, though you may  have  been   buying them  under  different trade names. For example, polyester is the generic  name of the fibre used in many  drip-dry garments. Take a good  look at these generic names ���  soon, you will see them whenever you buy certain textile products.  Acetate, anidex, acrylic, azlon  and glass.  Metallic, modacrylic, nylon  and nytril.  Olefin, polyester, rayon and  rubber.  Saran, spandex, vinal and vin-  von.  The regulations for the Textile Labelling Act will be announced shortly. Industry will  then have a period of grace in  which they will change their labels to include generic names.
