Array Provincial Library,  Victoria,'B. C.  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Number 8, February 24,  1971  10c per copy  Interest growing  in drive on drags  :���.'������ Considerable interest is being  shown in the move towards curbing the spread of the drug menace r in this area, judging from  support shown by the public in  Tthe presentation by the United  Church Women's action in bringing an anti-drug movie to Gibsons.  This ptLcture, The High, will  be. brought to Gibsons for a  showing Friday night, 8 p.m., in  the United Church hall. It will  affso be shown March 5 in Sechelt under auspices of the  Lions- club.  Following the picture there  will be a free-rfpivall .discussion.  (The ..attention" of   readers   is-  drawn to an article on page  two under the heading The Peril of POT Outlined.)  With Gibsons Biwanis cluib  showing an interest in the movement it is hoped that some form  of organization linking all those  interested; under one heading for  future operations.  The'rhoyie will be shown by  the   Vanlcoiiver   Alcohol - Drug ���  Education Council which wais invited to visit Gibsons by the United Church UCW. ������  At its last meeting the Gibson's and District Chamber of  Commerce offered its support  in the drive to educate the young  on the dangers of drug usage.  Sechelt mini icipal halt  expansion o  Based on the assumption that  the money could be spent better  elsewhere,   Aid.   Ben  Lang   opposes plans for expansion of Sechelt's municipal hall. He is supported by Aid. Ted Osborne who  holds the same opinion.  . "������}���>'The remarks came when plans  .for the expansion were laid on  ^council's table for examination.  j Aid.

The  questionnaire   was   sent   to   all  households in Coast Chiicotin at  -the first of the year.  plying that present facilities now  occupied by government offices  when vacant, would add to present vacancies. Aid. Joe Benner  expressed the feeling that the  council should go ahead with its  expansion program.  He maintained present government offices are all upstairs and  not suitable for the aged population. Aid. Lang argued that "we  have vacancies now all over the.  village:���-'-^/  \' Discussion opened on the  bright note that perhaps council  was approaching thotimie to call  for tenders, Tji-e^^^eriti imiriiici-  ^pa_7; ���''-���-���"������'���:-'������-������-"��� - ���-�����-����� - - -��'-���-'��� ��� --- ^�� ���  936 respond to St Pierre poll  ralso7 entail the a-dditfori7of.;van-v7.'i;pal;->ha^  ^ther-se^  '(By PAULfST.PIEI-R^^  Coast-Chilcotin residentsjt^^ c. 35.7.  number of 926 haive resipbhd^vtp 11- 13.

He offered the  suggestion when the club sought  ah increase in the amount of  council's grant for this event.  Last year the grant totalled  $450. This year, the club is asking for $500. Aid* Joe Benner  supported the move; by stating  that last year's expenses were  more than $500. SO the mayor  offered the idea that instead of  asking for an Increase of grant  each year, the club take it over  completely. Anyway, he said,  council expects" to have an ac-  LOST LETTER  A letter in the mail lost for  about a year which dame; from  Rapid City, Manitoba, extended  ���best wishes -for British Corum-  bia's future Ceritehnia. celebration and stated that for the Manitoba -\ Centennial - celebration  (1970) Rapid City was twinned  with Sechelt. The latest post  mark on the envelope was a recent cancellation from Gibsons.  MUSEUM MEETING  A meetihg of the Pioneer Museum' Society members will be  held March 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the  home of Mrs. Eileen Glassford,  1732 Marine Drive, Gibsons.  HOLE-IN-ONE  The first hole-in-one on the  Sunshine Coast Golf and Country club course occurred on Feb.  16 at hole number eight. This  event was performed by Mrs.  Ann Chose of Burnaby who with  husband Eric, were guests of  Gladys and Floyd McGregor of  Gibsons. The event will most  likely be recorded in the annals of the golf club.  wnramimwMnwiunwnnnnnunuumMiuimmmimuuniif  counting   after   the   event   this  year.  Aid. Benner added that he expected a son of the founder of  Hackett Park to come to Sechelt  for the May Day event- The son  is Bobby Hackett.  On the subject of closing hours  for stores, Clerk Ted Rayner  said he had written the department of municipal affairs for information and the possibility of  obtaining a new type draft bylaw to give some direction to  council's thinking.  Aid. Benner obtained information from the clerk that the tenant of the store premises, Neil  Campbell had taken out his trade  license but apparently had  changed the nature of the business after issuance of the license. Mayor Swain thought the  matter would be one which the  Regional District board rnay  have to consider some time.  TDuring the meeting, Aid. Benner corrected an impression  which the Coast News gave concerning the previous meeting  when it mentioned that council  was informed that merchants  backed by the chamber of commerce were protesting. Aid. Benner maintains he brought the  matter up as an alderman and  not as a member of the chamber  of commerce.  N. G. B. Burley was appointed  to the board of variance for Sechelt, replacing Aid. Ben Lang.  , On the subject of truck traffic  through the village, Aid. Lang  suggested to council it should  look into the possibility of using  Toredo St. for heavy traffic and  thus do away with bad turns for  lengthy trucks. Toredo St. at its  western end runs directly on to  t h e h ighway and would do away  with the two turns in that section of the highway. Aid.

Day of Prayer  on March 5  The theme of service for the  World Day of Prayer at 2 p.m.  Friday, March 5 in Gibsons United Church will be A New People for a-New Age.  On the first Friday in March,  Christians gather around the  world to give witness to their  unity in Christ by worshipping  together. The depth of their concern is also revealed by a willingness to share with the world's  needy people. Offerings last year  from the World Day of Prayer  totalled $69,000 and provided for  a variety of projects in literacy,  relief and outreach.  Contributors to this service of  worship include Sylvia Talbot,  a member of the executive of the  International Committee on the  World Day of Prayer; Una Matthews, Chandrouti Matadial and  Marianne Fague all from Guyana; Joan Baily from Jamaica,  Vineta Gordon from the Virgin  Islands and Nita Barrow from  the Caribbean.

(Continued on Page 5)  Open meeting  discusses poll  At an open public meeting in  Selma Park Community hall  Monday night with Norman Watson in the chair, the recent poll,  (appearing on this page) by Paul  St. Pierre MP, covering problems affecting Canadians,, was  discussed.  . There were 20 persons present  for the meeting which was described as Operation Feedback  for the purpose of finding out  what people of all political parties had on their minds. There  were some half=dozen present  who were not committed politically and they asked various  questions and helped the debates  along.  Mr. Watson also announced  that Mr. St. Pierre would be in  this area Monday, March 29.  Sewer  tenders  called  Tenders for the supply, delivery and installation of sewer  pipes have been called by Gibsons municipal council to be received and opened in public at  noon, Tuesday, March 23.  Copies of. contract documents  can be obtained from the office  of the engineers, Dayton and  Knight in Vancouver or from  Dave Johnston, municipal clerk  at the municipal office.  The bylaw to authorize the  borrowing of the $420,000 was  given third reading by council  on Dec. 8 last and approval of  the bylaw was given by the inspector of municipalities on Jan.  14.  The borrowing of this money  will cover phase one of the sewer system which would be for  laying the system on a house to  house, street by street basis.  120 inch  skiing base  The weekly report from Tetrahedron Ski club officers reveals  there is a 120 inch base ori the  ski slope with 12 inches of powder snow.

The publication says that:  many adults abruptly leave their  sedentary activities with no conditioning and go skiing for a day  or a weekend. They push themselves too fast and.,too hard for  .their condition and often end  their season with a catastrophe.  Recoimmended is a conditioning program of indoor movement  exercises (swimming, running,  gymnastics, etc.) to be done five  or six days,a week.  Other important recommendations: learn proper breathing  (steady and deep) exercise in  a group (mutual incentive or  '���misery loves company'), cut  down on smoking (biad for the  heart) and on drinking (bad for  frostbite).

Local support desirable  When certain magazine salesmen and jiffy repairmen come into  this area, usually somebody loses, and word gets around quickly to  beware of the action.  But apparently it is not so with real estate. Here come the  outsiders, with no staff or office here, with promises of high prices  and fast sales, then when the signature is obtained for a lengthy  period, the salesman disappears, in hopes that it wiill be sold by the  local sales people, rewarding him with half the commission for his  double talk, which in many cases sold for much less than the promised price.  This money leaves this area, where it might have been spent  Iby a local salesman. Think of the howl there would be if a Sunshine Coast real estate For Sale sign appeared on Granville Street  in Vancouver. They would soon be after us for a business license  and a few other reasons to get it down.  Why not support your local real estate operators who live here  and know the area and have history and data at their finger tips,  such as Regional District and municipal regulations.  Next time you are approached, think before you sign. Ask yourself if this action is necessary.  Just what is it?  Addressing the Industrial Relations Management Association  conference recently at Harrison Hot Springs, L. H. Lorrain, Canadian director and first international vice-president of the International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers opened his remarks with the following:  "I want to tell you a story which was passed on to me sometime last year by Charlie Millard who many of you will remem*-  ber as one of the outstanding labor organizers for the Steelworkers  back in the thirties and forties. My friend Millard tells how one  day back in the time of the Steel Workers Organising Committee  the workers were picketing the National Steel Car Company in  Hamilton.  "They were marching around in the old orthodox picket line  whsn one of the men was approached by an irate woman who demanded to know: "What are you on strike for anyway?" (The woman was probably cross because her husband couldn't go to work  that morning). Well, the man on the picket line pulled himself together, squared his shoulders, righted his picket sign and marched  proudly past his inquislitor. As he went by he said with dignity,  "Madam, we're on strike for collective bargaining. . .whatever  the hell that is!"  So that we can get labor's view of what collective bargaining  it, Coast News columns next week will contain some of Mr. Lor-  rain's address on this subject.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 years ago  7  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gilbsons and Area Ratepayers  Association has decided to disband when only seven persons  showed up for the meeting..  Homework was the subject of  a discussion with the PTA of  Gibsons with teachers, parents  and students taking part in the  discussions.  Canon Greene appeared before Sechelt's council seeking  support for a senior citizens'  home project.  A Sunshine Coast Garbage  comimittee with representatives  from Pender Harbour to Gibsons  decided it had reached a dead  end and the next meeting would  be at the call of the chairman.  10  YEARS  AGO  The Public Utilities Commission has advised Seohelt Waterworks to seek a 20 percent water  rate increase instead of a 50  percent increase.  The school board advertised  for tenders covering the clearing of land for the proposed  Langdale school.  A Sunshine Coast High School  Drama Festival is slated to be  held on March 4.  15 YEARS AGO  Patrick Soames, of Soames  Point, died in Vancouver in his  69th year.  The power line of the Hydro  commission* has been extended  as far as Secret Cove.  Due to expansion of population in schools the school board  has embarked on a five year  building plan.  Council has decided a stop  sign must be placed at the bottom of the highway hill in rear  of the old United Church building.  20 YEARS AGO  /  Three tenders for the junior-  senior high school for Gilbsons  were higher thai, the school  board $277,500 estimate. The low  est of the three tenders was  $288,635.  When Mrs. L. S. Jackson refused riomiination as chairman  of the school board it was accepted by Tom Humphries.  NO LONGER UNDER FOOT  Sawdust has come up off the  barroom floor, to gain new dignity. It is being used now for  briquettes, pressed wood panels,  plastic wood, porous clay and  concrete products, snow tires,  pulp, charcoal, insulating and  packaging materials, wood flour  and, most of all, soil aids. Use  of sawdust and shavings for  building up soils, weed control,  moisture retention, mulching  and livestock and poultry bedding, has grown 100-fold in the  past 15 years. Homeowners build  sawdust into their new lawns to  give the grass a good foundation.  Under the heading The Peril  of Pot in the Christian Science  Monitor, William 7 H. Stringer  writes on the marijuana problem as follows:  The new data on marijuana  advises us that many factors  must be considered. For instance, pot differs greatly in  strength. That grown in the United States is relatively mild.  That from Mexico, a chief supplier, is more powerful. The  Vietnam variety is extremely  potent, its long-term impact  sometimes resembling LSD. If  pot were legalized, would the  purchaser know what strength  he was getting?     ,  Marijuana is not physically  addictive, as is heroin. It does  not automatically or usually lead  to use of other, more powerful  drugs. But those who take up pot  smoking for psychological reasons ��� to relieve depression and  anxiety ��� may be tempted to go  to the stronger concoctions in  their search for mental! peace.  Here are a few quotes on marijuana's observed effect, from a  compilation of researchers' comments assembled by the Pentagon's Drug Abuse Control Committee: "Tends to lessen inhibition arad creates for the user a  false reality based on his wants,  his motivations." "Among subjective effects are hilarity, carelessness, loquacious euphoria,  distortion of sensation and perception, impairment of judgment and memory." "Beginning  to encounter oases in which a  marijuana high comes on again,  weeks after a person has had a  high." "With long-term use, noted chronic lethargy, and loss of  inhibitions for two years after  last usage, indicating significant  and lasting organic brain damage." "Potential danger to unborn children."  (This last com  ment from experimentation on  animals, with more research to  come) the committee report  says.  Among everything, the character - hampering charge looms  very large. A teen-ager has to  face problems, the ordinary  stresses and strains as they  come along. Resort to marijuana  it has been shown, can wrap  him or her in a mental cocoon in  ' hope of avoiding the solving of  life's problems. Thus he or she  would avoid maturing; not really grow up, ever.  Of course the character weakness may have preceded the  marijuana. An overprotective  parent can be nearly as dangerous as a cop-out drug. But marijuana, if it becomes a habit, is  an encouragement to copping-  out. Recent studies of the impact  Of hashish, marijuana's potent  cousin, in North Africa, show  that some smokers tend totally  PAUL  ST.PIERRE, MP  COAST-CmLCOlTN  On Canada's  Constitution  A hundred years ago, give or  take a few months, when I was  involved in an election campaign  I was occasionally asked if I  thought the British North America Act needed amendment.  "Not much," I usually answered  It will probably corneas a surr  prise to no one that my opinion  has undergone a 180 degree turn.  Observation of federal-provincial relations, with all the overlapping of responsibility, conflict  of jurisdiction, divided authority  and all too often unclear authority has convinced me that the  old British North America Act is  badly out of tune with modern  Canada.  It is too often not clear to the  average Canadian which level of  government is responsible for  What. His taxes may go to one,  for spending by another and  agreement and disagreement between Ottawa and individual provinces often leads to situations  which are almost hopelessly confusing.  Not only is  the" citizen of  confused. So are his legislators,''  So are his governments. So are  the lawyers.  Out of the latest federa>H>ro-  vincial   conference    has   come  what appears to be  a positive  step   toward   rationalizing   the <  Canadian constitution.  The communique issued at the '  close of two days of meetings  suggested some agreement onia  formula for bringing the constitution home from Britain for l  amending. Further, it even suggested some forms of amendment that could be made in it.  This is the first break in a long  impasse between Ottawa and the  various provinces of the federal  state. The old Fulton-Favreau  formula appeared to be on the ;  verge of success, a decade ago,  but it would have required unanimous agreement of the federal  government and each of the ten  provinces. This formula collapsed.  The  new formula provides a  compromise   which   may prove '  workable.   Under  the   new  formula   that,   once  the  provinces  have   agreed,   Canada  will  ask  the British Parliament to surrender its present right to pass on  Canadian     constitutional     law.  (There   is   no   difficulty   antici- ���  pated here. The British haven't ;  wanted that power for a genera- ���  tion or more. They've been waiting for us to relieve them of the  responsibility     and     doubtless  have   been   impatient   that   we  haven't   been   able    to   agree  among ourselves to  ask).  In   future,   all   constitutional  amendments would require first  a resolution by the federal government. This would then have  to be approved by at least six of  the ten provinces, two west of  the   Great  Lakes,  two   east   of:  Quebec, and Ontario and Quebec  provinces. In the west, the two  consenting provinces would have ['  to contain more than 50 percent \.  of the Western provinces' popu- f  The effect of this is to.give a 7  veto power over constitutional >  change to Ontario and Quebec,  or any province which thereafter  contains 25 percent of the Canadian population, as these two  central provinces now do. It  would give greater weight to  British Columbia in exercising  a veto. No two prairie provinces  by themselves constitute 50 per  cent of the West's population.  On the other hand, no small  province such as Prince Edward  Island, with a mere 100,000 people, could block constitutional  reform by taking a completely  intransigent  attitude.  The governments appear to be  in agreement that immediately  there shall be entrenched rights  in a new constitution, requiring  governments at all levels to provide for elections at least every  five years, universal suffrage  and the usual freedoms oif  thought, conscience, religion, expression and peaceful assembly.  It would entrench language  rights for French and English  approximately the same as are  now provided in the federal legislation.'  The Canadian Supreme Court  would be the court of final appeal for the whole nation.  Federal-provincial government  conferences, which may be said  to have had their main impetus  provided by John Robarts^ Ontario's statesmanly Conservative  premier, would be made obligatory.  The main requirement of a  new, constitution is left unresolved by the new formula. How  shall taxing powers and responsibilities be divided between federal and provincial governments? This is the most necessary revision, but also the most  difficult.

Dry-land log       Wharfage dues cases reviewed  With hazard-free dry land sorting and storage, and a versatile  barging system, a new operation  which   could   revolutionize   the  transportation of logs in the forest industry was outlined to the  legislature byTHon. Isabel Dawson.  Those involved in the new concept,  she said, feel that, from  jrears of observation of logging  and the trarispdftatiori of logs on  the British Columbia coast, the  new/invention could be a great  stride forward in the economic  naryest of trees, and in the reduction of/water and beach pollution as a direct result.  Witli regard'to the small logger,  this  system  could benefit  him greatly by his beirig able to  bring his logs in bundle form to  a central dry land sorting area.  (The new method would mean  the use of float areas on pilings  which would be loaded with logs.  The carrier would be of the type  to sink below water level at one  end and when pumped out lift  the load off the pilings for transportation purposes). ���  Patents have been applied for  on this, invention, Mrs. Dawson  said. The whole idea and its development is the work of a man  who has spent 40 years of his  life in tug boat operation on the  Coast   of   British   Columbia,   a  man who is,not a big businessman, but a regular working Joe.  The bundles would be removed from the water intact, sorted  and stored on land until required  at the market, in which case, the  wood could be s moved by  this  barging system.  In cases where small loggers  obtain a few logs which are good  for pilings, these few logs could  be stored until a number accumulate and thus take advantage of  the   market in   this   particular  area. Or, he could combine with  ���" other small loggers in gathering  together a number of such logs.  The concept, if put into operation, would create jobs in our  shipyards, and in the making of  _i. grids for platforms which would  be lis-ed at logging camps and  malls:  The system could be used on  large inland lakes and on some  of our fivers.  Sonie of the points that bring  to light the desirability ot this  operation are:  Dry land sorting as opposed to  water sorting. _  .������,..,......'  Less log losses from sinkers  or from tide and wind conditions  around booming grounds.  Transportation of boom chains  and boom sticks would be unnecessary.  The hew operation could be  economically 'feasible because of  the increase in speed of operation. .  Logging company operations  could be Tspeeded up by faster  unloading facilities at the beach.  Sorting .could be speeded up by  bringing aill logs from the various camps to a central location  to be sorted on land.  The seJf-dumiping barges already in operation could be integrated into the new system by  dumping logs at the sorting  grounds, then removing them directly from the water.  The estimated speed of this  new vessel is ten miles per hour,  as opposed to one-and-a-half  miles per hour under present  methods.  As the logs are sorted, they  couldi be transported by barge  directly to the mills when ordered!  It is considered possible that  a mill, placing an order for a  load of three quarter million  board feet of lumber from Howe  Sound, could have it delivered  to the Fraser River, Harmac, or  Vancouver Harbour area, within  24 hours. This is in direct contrast to the present system  where the logs can take weeks  to get to a mill, following an  order.  R. C. DUCKWORTH  Chartered Accountant  Ph. 886-2912, Gibsons  Ph. 885-9515. Sechelt  The Fishermen's Union Vancouver publication The Fisherman reported the following in its  recent issue:  GIBSONS ��� The village council here has taken a new tack in  its prosecution of two commercial fishermen in a dispute over  wharfage fees.  As; reported in the,last issue  of The; Fisherman,. the council  qrigiinaiiy charged the men under, Section 372 of the Criminal  Code which provides for up to  14 years' imprisonment on conviction.  The charges were laid against  Ray Keelan, secretairy of Gibsons local of the UFAWU, and  Alec, Davidson, both of whom  aire trbllefs.. Charges were also  laid against four other boat owners.  Section 372 deals with any action iri which a pterson wilfully  "obstructs, interrupts or interferes with the lawful use or operation of property."  Keelan and Davidson appear-  ed in court at Gibsons on January 26 to face the charge. Council lawyer Bruce Emerson, however, told the court that the  criminal charges were being  dropped and new ones laid under  Section 31 of the federal Har-  bor�� and Piers Act which states  that ."no person shall contravene  an order of the wharfinger..."  Keelan says that a new summons issued January 26 charges  him with cdntravening a wharfinger's order iri peceir_b���ir to  move his trbller Carrie fe, which  was aiiegectly behind iri wharfage payments.  Keelan and Davidson are  scheduled to appear in court to  face the new charge on March  2. The pertinent section of the  act calls for a fine riot exceeding  $200 or up to 60 days' imprisonment, or both, on conviction.  Adrininistratibri of wharf facilities at Gibsons was taken  over by the village council in  1969 on a lease from the federal  transport department.  A wharfinger was placed on  the village payroll and a schedule of fees , enforced. Fees had  not been collected while the facilities were under direct federal  administration.  At Campbell River, meanwhile  commercial fisherman Headley  Murray said this month he will  not pay  wharfage fees  despite  legal action taken against him  by wharfinger Jim Denis.  The Vancouver Island community has been the centre of a  long dispute over wharfage since  Denis took over wharf administration on a lease from the federal government.  Commercial fishermen at a  number of coastal points are  strongly critical of handing administration over to wharfingers and private companies,  pointing out that the stringent  application of a scale of wharfage fees is not matched by any  .approvement in service or facilities.

ALL TYPES  OF  INSURANCE  Gibsons; B.C.  Phone  886-2000  MEMBER  MULTIPLE LISTING  SERVICE  Letters to Editor  Editor: I wish to thank you for  publishing the item about the  lost 1956 Elphinstone Grade 12  picture and those who responded to it.  We not only received a picture  from Mrs. Sherman of Port Mellon but we also had the original  pictures returned.  ���(Mrs.) BEATRICE RANKIN  Editor:   I   must say I   agree  with Mr. Gilker, past chairman  of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District board, when he expresses concern about the dissenters  in our midst (Coast News, Feb.  17). Mr. Gilker is worried about  the   "breakup   of   democracy."  So am I. What is it that Mr. Gil-'  ker feels will cause ' -the breakup of democracy if not corrected"?   Freedom   of speech.  Mr.  '; Gilker" states* t_iis: Very  clearly  when he says, "This type of action, either by appeal to other  government offices, delegations,  pressure  groups,  is  devoted to  specific  projects   only. 7.If   not  corrected  it   will   lead   to   the  breakup of democracy."   (It is  important to note that the albove  mentioned activities are lawful.)  By this time, Mr. Gilker and-I  are no longer in agreement, even  though I appreciate his problem.  This problem has-been with us  for quite a while. A long time  before Mr. Gilker appeared on  the scene, governments had absolute power, and woexbetide the  dissenters     (see    Romans    vs.  Christians,   Spanish   Inquisition  vs' non-believers, Hitler vs Jews)  I   suppose   those   people   who  maintain that government is infallible,  thought it  was  OK  to  dispose of the delegations in the  lion's   den,   pressure   cook   the  pressure groups,  and  give  the  Jews   the   Hansel   and   Gretel  treatment.  Fortunately for us. someone  figured it out that it doesn't  work too well if we say "the  government is the law." (See  above) It might work better if  we agree there are laws riot subject to the whims of government ��� laws that are universal  and apply to all men regardless  of color, creed, rich, poor, clean  dirty, etc., etc. These universal  laws shall be the foundation of  our government and shall be revered not only by the people, but  especially by those chosen to  speak for them. And if the people don't like what they hear,  they can say something too. Any  objections?  ���MARY GROSS.  Take no stand  Both Gibsons and Sechelt municipal councils have acted warily in the Cherry Point, Washington argument over the transportation of (oil from Alaska.  Gibsons council has decided to  file the matter for the present.  Mayor Wally Peterson said he  found it pretty hard to make  judgment on the proposal. Sechelt's council last week were  satisfied that the matter was in  the hands of federal government Teachers' president replies  President of the Sechelt Teachers'"Association John Burnside*  has expressed regret at misrepresentation of the position of his  association as described in last  week's local papers concerning  the local school district's integration program.  At issue was the alleged challenge to the chairmanship of  Mrs. Agnes Labonte. The-STA  president feels that no such challenge was made. At a meeting  early in December Mr. Burnside  as the Teachers' Association representative on the Integration  Committee, suggested a rotating  chairmanship with the school  board, the administrators,, the  teachers and representatives of.  the Sechelt Indian Band alternating in the Chair. The committee  discussed the suggestion and  voted its approval at that time.  At a" subsequent meeting of the  school board, the board unilaterally rejected this suggestion.  At the latest meeting of the  integration committee, Mr. Bum-  side expressed regret that the  democratically expressed wishes  of the committee had been overruled by the board.  "There was certainly no challenge from the teachers' association for control of the committee," Mr. Burnside said. "Behind  SECHELT JEWELLERS  GUARANTEED  WATCH & JEWELRY  REPAIRS  885-2421  r-i^>^*0*^^0*0^0*0^0^0*0*0^0^0*0*0*0m0*0*^^0^^  the suggestion for a rotating  chairmanship was the feeling  that participation on the committee would be enhanced if all  groups represented felt themselves to full and equal members  of the committee.".  The STA president feeis that  his suggestion was the most diplomatic method possible of suggesting to. the school board that  perhaps a comimittee discussing  Indian integration should occasionally have an Indian in the  chair.  "To question the competence  of Mrs. Labonte was the furthest thing from my mind," Mr.  Burnside insisted. "Such an interpretation has no basis in reality."  the responsibility of several  "' "Education in this district is  groups and the educational interests of the youth of the area  can best be served if these  groups work in trust and close  partnership. When suggestions  made by any group are regarded as a threat or a challenge by  any other, we are a lonig way  from the required harmonyv of  interests,'' the Teachers' Association president concluded.  Golfers elect  Mrs. Lee Redman was elected  ladies captain at the annual  meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Golf and Country club, ladies  group.  Others elected were: Vice-  captain, Mrs. Lome Gregory;  secretary, Mrs. Ken Gallier;  treasurer, Mrs. Alan Swan and  publicity, Mrs. E. Shaw.

GOD SAVE^THE QUEEN  Canadian Hotel and Restaurant business magazine carried  this fare comment in its current  issue: In a London, England,  meat market there's a sign over  one store that reads: We are  sausage purveyors to Her Majesty the Queen. On a delicatessen shop across the way, another  sign reads: God save the Queen.  Even as after-shocks of the  disasterous Feb. 9 California  quake, that spread death and  destruction through Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley continue to plague the residents of that area, Frank and  Jean Wyngaert recall a terrifying event that occurred in Gibsons on an unseasonably hot and  humid Sunday in early June,  1939.  As Frank tells it, it happened  around noon. He had just come  up the hill from the village  where he operated what is now  the Village Store.  Seated in the living room of  his present home on the Wyngaert family farm, Frank suddenly noticed the range boiler  in the kitchen acting up in a  most peculiar manner. Without  warning it conwnenced swaying  from side to side, like the er  ratic upside-down pendulum of  a giant grandfather clock.  He sat rooted for a long scar-  ey moment ��� Earthquake!  Fighting down a sick, dizzy  feeling, he called his wife from  the bedroom and together they  made their uncertain way outdoors. Outside the house Frank  and Jean hung on to each other  trying to maintain a precarious  balance as they swayed from  one foot to the other. The ground  (beneath their feet undulated like  the heaving floor of. a carnival  crazy house.  Thoughts of the San Francisco  earthquake of 1906 flashed  through their minds as they expected a gaping crevasse to  open and swallow them up!  Close at hand the fish pond  sloshed waves of water and goldfish over its brim. Out through  the   orchard,   near   the   barn,  Frank saw his father, a poultry  raiser, drenched to the skin and  seated on an overturned barrow  moping his brow in a dazed  mechanical way. Nearby the  open manhole of a cistern where  he had been drawing water for  the stock, shot geysers of water  six feet in the air.  Just as suddenly as it came,  it was over. The three-minute  earthquake as it casme to be  known, subsided, leaving in its  wake cracked foundations and  more than 50 toppled chimneys  from Port Mellon to Powell River, including a partly demolished chimney at the odd Corlett  place up from Marine Drive.  Recalling their reactions on  that Sunday in June, Frank re-,  members it as if it were just yesterday, the chilling sense of fear  that came over both of them;  not felt so much at the actual  time of the quake, but later. The  delayed shock that comes with  the aftermath really 'grips you,  Frank said.

The generation of electric  power has doubled in the past  10 years.  There are 7.4 million acres of  provinciai and national parks in  British Columbia.  Almost 50 percent of the value  of manufacturing is accounted  for by wood and paper prdQucts.

The championship matches are telecast in color on the  CBC-TV network Saturdays at 2 p.m.  Point of law  (By  a   Practicing Lawyer)  It is the intention in these articles to advise not only on matters of obvious practical concern to the businessman, and the  man on the street, but also to  discuss some of the more grave  and weighty matters in our legal  system that sooner or later affect everyone in Canada. This  week we compare the U.S. and  Canadian Supreme Courts.  The most striking difference is  the question of precedent. The  doctrine of 'precedent is deeply  rooted in both Canadian and U.S.  law and indeed throughout the  world where the English common law system endures, that is  today in all English speaking  countries, and also all former  British colonies.  The rules of precedent require  that a court must decide a case  in accordance with the way the  courts have decided, cases with  similar sets of facts in the past.  The older the case and the Higher the court that decided the  question, the more firmly embedded and enshrined a place it  finds in our system of justice.  The Canadian Supreme Court  is bound by itself ���that is it  must, in general, follow its own  past decisions. One reason for  this is that it is felt that if the  law is to be changed on a matter that is so important that the  Supreme Court has ruled on it,  this should be done by bur elected representatives (parliament) alone. The U.S. Supreme  Court does not bind itself and it  may change the law to the extent of overruling previous cases decided by it (or any lower  court) at any time.  Moreover the U.S. Supreme  Court does not have to decide  cases by any set legal principle  A. andD.

COAST NEWS  Ph. 886-2622  (Copyright)  but may entertain and approve  any arguments, and initiate new  sociological trends as it wishes.  This court has been much criticized in the U.S. of late for (being an appointed body) usurping  the powers of Congress which of  course is an elected body and  presumably more representative  of the wishes of the people as a  whole.  The U.S. Supreme Court is  more of a political body. They  are often expected by the president to interpret legislation in  accordance with his plans.  The membership is different  also. Almost all Canadian Supreme Court judges have been  practicing lawyers. Many of the  corresponding UJ5. judges were  formerly law professors and  hence more apt to view problems from an ideological point  of view. There is,some, tendency  of late in Canada also towarcjs  the appointment of academics to  the bench of our Supreme Court.
