This is the advice of the RCMP  who are clamping down on hitchhikers as well as car drivers  who pick them up, members of  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce were informed at  Monday night's:; meeting of the  chamber at Cedars Inn.  The problem came up when  information from the Ferry Authority on the menace of pickups on ferry property leading to  the highway reveailled that the  ferry authorities were lookinig  into the situation. Cpl. L. W.  Biggeman of the RCMP said that  if the ferry people 'can keep  them out of the ferry controlled  area, the RCMP can look after  them under highway regulations  which give the police room for  action. 7  Generally speaking the ROMP  across the country have been  advised to curb the hitchhiking  menace and Sunshine Coast  RCMP are included.  Businessmen are asked to  guard their premises caretfully  this summer in view of the expected influx of hitchhiking travellers to this area. Householders too were asked to look after  TIME CHANGE  -There will be a time  change Sunday so please,  before: retiring Saturday  night advance the clock one  hour so you will be on fast  time.;  onhighway  Word has been received  through Hon.

This was1 brought to public  attention at Monday night's  meeting of Gilbsons and: District  Chamber of Commerce by Cpl.  L. W. Biggeman of the RCMP.  He reported that break-ins are  already more numerous and the  objects taken have chiefly been  ���M-quor arid food. He urged business houses to see;that their premises are well secured at night.  Discussion revealed there are  people roaming around the area  all.night long, the kind of people who sleep all day and do  their roaming during dark hours  He also reported a considerable amount of breakins to property on islands and every how  -and; again > sjoone.. islands' hayer,ti>  ' be'?cleared df 7squa it brs". 7Br^;k-  ins, he said, are becoming more  numerous throughout the area  and he urged the public to be  prepared for the summer influx.  He added that people are becoming .. fed lip with the situation  and are being much more careful about rentihg their premises  to unknowns.  Mass holiday for  mill employees  Employees at the Howe Sound  Pulp Division of Canadian Forest Products Ltd. were informed  that weak market conditions  would force a three week mill  shutdown early this _a_mfme*r.  In ah announcement to employees, the company stated:  "T-)^7n_ar^et for wood pulp  has been weakening since the  turn of the year. This weakness  had1 developed because of reduced business activities in Europe and the Far East where our  major markets are located.  "We will not be able to sell all  our production and stock piling  facilities are limited. As a result, the mill will be shut down  from June 14 to Julfy 5. All production employees will be expected to take their holidays  during this time.  "The outlook for the second  half of the year is not much  brighter and a further shutdown  before the year end may be necessary."  The over-sfupply condition the  industry faces may last for some  time. It likejy means that no increase iri sellinig prices will (be  ..possible, this year. As a result,  the industry will not be able to  recover any of its increases in  costs nor to pick up the losses  in selling prices which resulted  from the. appreciation of the  Canadian dollar.  At Monday night's Gibsons'  and District Chamber of Commerce meeting1, Chairman Larry  Labonte said the financial loss  to workmen would be slight as  they would be paid as though on  a holiday period.  Drug pushets  Clean Up & Paint Up Week] big problem  April 24 to April 30.1970  The Gibsons Municipal Council and the Chamber of Com-  merce are sponsoring* the 1971 paint up and ��lean up week  which will start on Saturday; April 24th.

A great many people believe tins expression to be true.  Perhaps at one time it was. But  this isn't the case today, at least  on Canada's west coast. In fact,  the weather along the B.C. coast  has been undergoing a change  and no longer holds to predictable patterns as in the past. The  weather is getting milder, but  gales are more frequent than  before.  with the added cost of the pipes  obtained from their suppliers  follow:  Valid Construction $256,059.

A special meeting of council  occurred on March 23 at 12 noon  with Martin Dayton of Dayton  & Knight present. The purpose  of this meeting was to open the  four tenders covering the supply of pipe, manholes, manhole  covers and frames, also the installation ��� of the collector pipe.  Following discussion covering  the prices and' work all tenders  were referred to Dayton &  Knight Ltd., consulting engineers for a report back to council. This special meeting took  half an hour.  Pushers are the chief problem  in the drug situation today Cpl.  L. W. Biggeman of the RCMP  informed Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce at its  Monday night dinner meeting in  Cedars Inn.  He revealed how one pusher  made about $900 in two or three  days from sales to 16 and 17  year olds, he said. Eventually  the RCMP picked him up.  Public support is needed if  this menace is to be curbed, he  added. Last year he experienced  a period when the public was  quite responsive and gave the  police good information on which  to work. He would like to see the  public again respond and offer  their help in curbing the drug  menace.  Speaking on the general drug  situation he said there were  very few hard drug1 addicts in  the area. So far the lesser drugs  are being used but they lead  to the use of hard drugs eventually. In order that the menace  be curbed he urged1 the public  to speak up and give the police  a chance to get the situation under better control.  He did not expect marijuana  would be legalized1. Efforts to  grow it in this area have not  been too successful, as the grade  is low. One field of 3,000 plants  was discovered and destroyed.  Sometimes drug users* were being fooled by having alfalfa  passed on to them. There have  been two or three LSD cases in  the area but LSD is not regarded as the chief menace.  During the question period it  was suggested that where the.  situation could be helped was at  the seventh grade school level  where the youngsters moving up  lo high school could be briefed  on the menace and possibly  steered in the right direction  and away from damaging drugs.  Caravan in area  The Centennial '71 Caravan  will travel throughout British  Columbia following its opening  in Victoria, March 16, to its final appearance in New Westminster late in November, announces L. J. Wallace, general chairman of the provincial Centennial  '71 committee.  The caravan, consisting' of  three huge display trailers offering a journey through the corridors of time, and explorations  beneath the surface of the earth  and sea, will appear in Gibsons  pjri ;>^pril 21 and Sechelt; on April  7-This is* a much more extensive  project than the very successful  caravan which travelled the province in 1958, 1966 and 1967. The  techniques of design, animation,  sound, slides and pictures are  used to depict the province's  progress as well as display some  of its colorful past.  The British Columbia Centennial '71 Caravan is travelling  throughout the province under  the auspices of the British Columbia Centennial '71 committee  and in co-operation with local  Centennial Committees. Admission is'free.  wmMmMmWrwmmmmrMmmrWmm  With the 'flu having made  "ffiroaclsr to "the ���-* staff "of the  Coast News, some news items which should have appeared in this issue have  been held over until next  week.  Water tax explained  Explaining the position of the  land charge in water financing,  the Regional District board has  issued the following press release :  Reduction of the recently imposed land charge for Regional  District water service should be  feasible within six years, the  water comimittee decided at a  meeting April 6.  Reduction will depend on two  as yet unknown factors: Interest rates on financing for the  $1.1 million system and increase  of land parcels in the serviced  area  through  subdivision.  The present rates would pay  off the system within 25 years  with income from* an average of  2,400 parcels, providing financing could be arranged at 7%.  Any substantial increase beyond 2,400 would allow for rate  reduction. Such increase is very  probable, since as Water Superintendent G. Dixon reports, there  are over 150 new parcels under  application so far this year alone  Interest on long term borrowing has risen to SV2% since the  original projection was made,  but has started to decline recent  Players invited  Driftwood Players , have been  invited to Victoria in May, to  present the play Wfaat Shall We  Tell Caroline.  At the Vancouver Island Zone  Drama Festival Colleen Johnson  was nominated for best actress,  and Mary Livingstone for best  supporting actress.

Fixed expenses for the water-  system, including loan repayment (financed by the land  charge) and operating cost (financed by the user charge) will  be at least $131,000 this year. Income from the 1981 land parcels  and 868 users will be $121,649.  The resulting deficit, which  will continue until there are  more than 2,400 land parcels,  will have to be made up before  rale reductions can be introduced.  Students seek  work grant  A request for a grant of $28,-  100 under the Opportunities for  Youth program outlined by the  department of the secretary of  state to provide work for students of Elphinstone Secondary  school has been sent by telegram to Ottawa.  The request has been made by  the school's Student Parliament  and will, if fulfilled, give'10 students three months work at eight  hours per day building an access road, picnic area, making  walking and riding trails and  other benefits for the Roberts  Creek Recreational Centre now  being developed.  First application for this help  was made by the recreation centre committee under direction of  Chairman E. Hens-ch. He was informed that applications must  be made by youth organizations.'  At this point Elphinstone school  parliamentary cabinet stepped in  and immediately sent a telegram  to the secretary of state.

Those summer jobs  As is general with provincial governiment lack of internal communications there appears to be no end to the situation based on  what occurred regarding the work planned for students on the  Sunshine Coast as reported in the Coast News of April 7.  The heading to the story read 600 Jobs for Students on Summer  Park Work, based on an announoment telephoned to the Coasib  News- from the Victoria office of Hon. Isabel Dawson, The story  revealed that $167,000 would be spent on a student job incentive/  program to improve existing parks on the Sunshine Coast.  When various' people wrote to the address mentioned, they received replies that the department knew nothing about it and that  its sumtmer job program had been filled last January.  One can only assume in this case that cabinet ministers without portfolio work much faster than do the others. One can hardly  suspect Mrs. Dawson was playing a joke on young people for whom  the work was supplied. It would be closer to the facts if one surmised that communications in Victoria from the source to the lowly civil servant are far slower than a cabinet minister's announcement to the press.  Hon. Isabel Dawson contacted by telephone Monday morning  in Victoria informed the Coast News that the announcement came  from' the minister and that if there was any doubt about it drop)  the minister a line along with the application for sudh suimimer  work and it would most likely be processed in the usual way.  Looks like a case of the e!_fect of the published announcement  being faster than the effect of the ministerial pronouncement on  departmental communications1.  Buy municipal bonds?  With municipalities in British Columbia seeking money for  municipal purposes one would suppose the established bond market  would be receptive. However the availability to bond houses of a  better and quicker return on invested money leaves municipalities,  with nowhere to go.  Municipalities could with the aid of banks or financial houses  launch, modest at-home bond selling campaigns. It might create a  greater interest in municipal affairs with' a financially involved  element' becoming aware of area events. This could apply to regional districts as well. However the bookkeeping involved is not  welcomed generally.  With gigantic schemes underway, or in the oiffing, ready to  absorb available cash via the top-level industrial bond market, it  might not be too far fetched to have local participation in municipal bond sales.  At present municipalities are confined to provincial government direction and provincial governments are becoming overloaded with responsibilities which in the past were assumed by bond  houses.  It might be a move in the right direction for the local taxpayer  lo be given a chance to heillp finance the municipal unit in whidH  he lives. The local bondholder would then get a financial return*  from taxes paid. It is a nice thought. Maybe we should try it!

(By ERIC THOMSON)  One afternoon last spring, my  next-door neighbor Mrs^ Dor-  eene Dockar came, to see me,  bringing with her a copy of the  constitution of the Vancouver  Cultural Society, to have a draft  made to adapt it for the charter for an Arts and Cultural Society for the Sunshine Coast,  which area was described as toeing ifram Port Mellon to Earl's  Cove, with the adjacent islands.  I made a start on it next forenoon. The window where, I work  faices east and takes in a spectacular view of Howe Sound and  these very islands, and beyond  them to the mountains, and on  a sunshiny Sunday morning it  was hard to keep my mind and  fingers on the typewriter and  the unfaimiliar expressions.  As I got to the gist of the  matter, I had the feeling that  there was a vaguely familiar  ring to the project, and that I  had* in my time been exposed to  similar civilizing influences. It  then dawned on me that this was  a resurgence of what had burst  on unenlightened old Victoria  at the beginning of this century.  ��}�� ��i�� i- .  To look at that serene and  pleasant city today, no one could  guess that Victoria had had a  wild and Woolly past, starting  with the Cariboo Gold Rush, and  ending with the Klondyke Trail  oif '98, and that ramslhajckie  down-town 'Government Street  boasted of four saloons at every  intersection, and two more in  the middle of the block, in case  of need. The only buildings of  note were the Parliament Buildings, then new, which had been  put there to anchor the capital  of the united colonies. The expression "A little bit of England  on the shores of the Pacific" had  not then been born, but the embryo was there in the persons  of Old Country folk of background. 7  The first signsv that a new era  was dawning appeared when the  North Ward proletariat were  ���miade to take piano lessons, and  also, on Saturday mornings, a  class in the theory of music This  in addition to mowing the lawn,  cleaning the; chicken house, and  filling the wood box. Curiously to  relate, I afosodbedfthis, but it  ���must have got cross^threaded,  for many years later I became a  piper. -  * ' *     ' *  This.was only the start of the  'Climb to Parnassus, for in the  afternoons on Saturdays, having  been parboiled at their various  homes, the young barbarians'  were herded down town to the  old Philharmonic Hall on Yates  Street for dancing lessons, and  to make sure that nobody dodged the column, pur parents came  too, and sat in on the proceedings.  These classes were under the  directioni of two ladies, Mrs.  Simpson and Mrs. Dickenson,  and there we met our fellow Victorians and their sisters from  the four quarters of Victoria,  which in those days was a very  insular place, socially anl otherwise.  We first were spaced out to  practice the steps, as in after  years we were lined up for physical jerks in the army, but at  the dancing class there was a  line of boys and a line of girls.  Aifter a spell of that, we turned  ���right and left to take the girl  alongside, and what followed  was a two step, holding the girl  away out, and at the end of the  hall she took over and steered  us the other way. The theme  tune was the 'Mosquito Parade'  and even now I can't hear it  wifchlout seeing that picture.  * *       *  There followed waltzes, Lancers, and so on, and the thing to  do, when the teacher announced  the dance, was to grab the other  fellow's sister, or yoiu were out  of luck. There were about equal  numbers of both sexes, but the  girls, other than our sisters,  were the daughters of the Royal  Navy and British Garrison.  They were slim, fair, frigid and  very English, and didn't like  partnering rude Colonials any  imore than we liked partnering  them. The teacher solved the  impasse by taking two boys at  a time, one by his left ear and  the other by his right, and with*  her little ftingfers extended,  marched us across the hall,  where we had to make our  manners to these fair ones, and  request the pleasure of a dance.  I hit the jack-pot on one occasion. I had been conscripted to  partner one of those tall blondes  and it rankled with her. In. the  course of our gyrations she told  me that she was the daughter of  a Navy captain, speaking down  to me. The Royal Navy im those  days celebrated July 1 at Vancouver, and July 4 at Seaittle,  and on one occasion a cruiser,  taking-a short cut through Active Pass, scraped a bilge keel  off on a rock. This accordion-  pleated metal lay for years next  to the Buddhist bell in Beacon  Hall Park. The captain at the  subsequent court of enquiry was  reprimanded. He was my partner's father, So I brightened up  and told her that my father,  James Thomson, was also running boats and was the Canadian  Pacific Navigation Company,  and that company had been running a dozen or more ships to  the Klondyke for years,, and-  hadn't lost one yet.  *       '���#       ���*  These lessons weren't all drudgery, for there were subsequent  fringe benefits. We went home  by way of Clay's Bakery on Fort  Street, near the'Brown Jug Sal!--  oon, and by father bought for  Saturday dessert cream puffs  and Charlotte russes. These were  real' delicacies, and I still use  them^ as a measure of comparison.  ... The dancing class boys were  mostly at the High School, and  one day Miss Potts, our class  teacher, asked for volunteers'  among the boys who could dance  for a theatrical performance to  be staged at the old Victoria  Opera House, them where Eatons  is now. Even then, we were cagey about volunteering, but she  told us that we were to practice  at the Opera House.  This turned to be something  out oif this world, for not only  did we have the run of the place,  with all its trap-doors and descending scenery, but we were  partnered by the pick of Victoria girls, and I have ah idea  that they rather enjoyed! themselves top. The play was "Alice  ^Through the Looking Glass,"  Iplayed' by Victoria; fcrnateiirs.  ''''* 1 ��� *���'   ��� ' ;#- 77;* ���','-".'  There was no, tiitouble about  casting, for Victoria abounded  in duchess types and all the  other "queers" of that story,,  who just had to be themselves.  I was one of the gardeners, the  seven of diamonds, and my partner a beautiful and charming  blonde. The performances were  marvellous, for Victoria rose to  the occasion with full evening  dress, and the intoxicating ap-.  p-iause put everybody on -the  stage at their best.' -  With the coming of spring, the  classes ended in an Assembly.  This took place in the Assembly  hall up Fort Street, and it was  an all night aiffair, with our parents in evening dress, programs,  a sit-down supper, and a wallk  home for breakfast in the dawn  before the little old street cars  were rolling.  In 1904 my Mother took my  two sisters and myself to Scotland and I didn't see Jfletoria  again until 1911. In the interval  the city had undergone a facelifting, and had paved1 streets,  and those cluster lights, now museum pieces. When I got back  the B.C. E.ect*rie Oo. bad made  an amusement part at the Gorge  on the Victoria West Side, serviced by its one and only open-  sided car, which left from in  front of the New England Hotel on Government Street.  *  *  *  ; One evennig my father took  me. out there, r/.d it was fairly  early, so there wasn't much doing. There was a big, open-sided  dance pavilion and father suggested that we look in. Seated  at the door was Mrs. Simpson.  She rose to welcome father, took  Your  Blood is  Always  Needed  +  BEA    ���  BLOOD ;  donor;  a look at me, and said, "So, this  is Eric" and asked for a dance.  She gave the nod to the orchestra, and we swjung away in a  wialtz. When we finished, she  stepped back from me and hon-.  ored me with a full curtsey, saying "Eric, I dont know where  you have been, or what you have  been doing, but somietoody has  got you up off your heels."  Did any of this culture brush  off on to those wild Victorian  boys and girls ofd 70 years ago?  One of the Athenian dictators, of  that city's, golden age, said that  he had found it brick and left it  marble. Somehow, something  like that happened to Victoria',  its Centennial Square, MacPher-  son Playhouse and new Museum  show that when the idea is born  there  comes  someone with  the  taste and knowhow to do the  job. Our Sunshine Coast has as  miuch natural beauty as Victoria  and now that our owr. young peo  .pier are nuking.their world mark  "in thW'realms \6t art, letters and  music; it ^raises a .lively hope  that, in present day language,  they too will project their image on to their environment.

Participation, be  it somewhat vicarious, in the excitement of a televised sporting  event by a large number of people is a good thing.  "The advent of closed-circuit  television in earnest would mean  that yet another aspect of our  culture will become the domain  of the very few people who can  afford to pay the price of a theatre ticket. ��� _ ._'  "If you * think~all this makes  sense, and you oppose dHosed  circuit telecasts of sporting events, write Paul St. Pierre a letter and tell Mm so."  The New York Times, Monday  Maitch 8, 1971:  "The impact of the Joe Fra-  zier-Muhammad Ali fight in the  world of communications' will  extend far beyond tonight. The  effect thus far of the clbsed'-cir-  cuit presentation already bears  out many contentions of broad-,  casters who have opposed pay-  as-you-see - TV on economic and:  public service grounds.-  "The rich few will be able to  afford  the astronomical prices  asked by theatres but millions of  the poor will be left with only  nostalgic memories of Joe Louis,  Jersey Joe Waleott and Kid Ga*  vilan   on their 12-inch  screens1.  The TV medium once opened to  all, regiarda'ess of station, is becoming a restricted instrument,  ii and the fight, may be the hahd-r  writing oh the wall for the fiiiture  of much entertainment and big  sports.  Dear Mrs.  .....  . Thank you for your letter and  the enclosures from the Squamish Citizen and the New York  Times columnist.  I don't know that I can agree  with the columnists' view that  productions of the modern boxing industry are sport. I would  be inclined to classify them as  major business enterprises of the  entertainment industry, comparable' with the Beatles, famous  comedians, or Walt Disney Productions. Obviousliy, the U.S.  boxing industry came to the  conclusion that it could make  more profit with a small1 audience and a high price than a  mass audience. The peolformers,  with the sleek beautiful new  Styleline  in a choice of glorious colors.  BCTEL^  as is noted in the Times article,  demanded a guaranteed fee of  some two millions.  In this case, Canada could  have done little. We might have  forbidden the closed circuit to  some Canadian theatres, but  since the industry had no fear  :of depriving their own nation's  soldiers in Viet Nam a view of  the fight, I don't think they  would have been much concerned about the economic or the  political impact of losing, a small  Canadian' audience.  The question closer to home is  whether the big Canadian hockey industry might raise its admission prices beyond the ability  of public television to pay.  I don't think this will happen.  If the mass audience doesn't see  hockey, hockey itself loses appeal. Theoretically, we .-night-see  the day that 20 plutocrats pay a  million dollars apiece to watch  private NHL games. Practically,  it isn't possible. Their interest  arises only out of general public  interest. Should the day come  JOHN HARPER  Designer, Cabinetmaker  Carpenter  REASONABLE PRICES  886-7065  that the general public doesn't  know or care who's goalie for  the   Maple   Leafs,   the wealthy  wouldn't contribute an old pop-  side stick to see a game.  However, I know you have  raised a good question in this  matter of pay-as-you-see TV and  I thank you for reminding me  that I should continue to think  about it.  ���Yours truly,  Paul St. Pierre, M.P.  Coast Chiicotin.

For a start, drive the'71  Impala and see how the changes we  made give you more of what you  want in a car;  Always a smooth ride, Impala  is even better this year. Thanks  to its longer 121.5" wheelbase,  improved suspension, wider stance  and wider wheels.  Arid a car that moves as well  as the Impala also needs to be able  to stop very surely. So power front  disc brakes are standard equipment.  Some ofthe equipment illustrated is optional at extra cost.  There's also a dual master cylinder,  warning light and corrosion-  resistant brake lines.  We made 15 meaningful  improvements to the '71 Impala.  Most of them, just for you.  But one of them is for everyone's benefit. A new control  system helps cut down fuel  evaporation into the  atmosphere. And to  further fight air  pollution, all 1971  Chevrolet engines  have been designed  to operateefiiciently, and with  lower exhaust emissions, on low-  lead, no-lead of regular fuels.  Inside and outside, Impala has  the look of leadership. Gives you  a very good feeling when you're  behind the wheel.  What about the $30,000  Sweepstakes?

Without such birds as  woodpeckers, nut-hatches, chickadees, warblers, wrens, and  many others our forests would  be destroyed by insects. Some  kinds of small birds hunt insects  on the bark, others work on the  slender twigs and leaves, and  woodpeckers cut into the tree  itself, chiselling out grubs, which  are undeveloped beetles. These  grubs bore into the sap-wood  and if too numerous will- finally  kill the tree? But, ithe woodpecker cuts into the bark with his  strong bill until he is able to  spear the insect with his barbed  tongue. Few birds are more  useful than the woodpecker.  :       LADIES  Register Now For Your  KEEP FIT Course, Commencing  Sion;^ May 3rd. $3 for 6 CMsses  Phone Mrs Mil ward, 886-2783  all LIBERALS  to the  i.niiiiniuihi.  of OFFICERS  New postal  code on fria!  Elderly Citizens week in June  in  area  Meet with YOUR newly elected  President of the B.C. Liberal  Immtiu  Mr Mel Couvelier of Victoria  in living -III colour for one night  only  Selma Park Hall  7.30p.m. Monday Aprils 1971  Reserve Your Seat Early  Sunshine Coast Liberal Assoc.  Canadians will get their first  close look at the postal code  April 1, starting in Ottawa.  Jean-Pierre Cote, Mii_uster responsible for the post office, announced the TLaunch date at a  press conference in the nation's  capital. ~      ;  ���. The code will be a permanent  part of every Canadian* address  by early 1974. It will be introduced in Manitoba in the fall of this  year, followed by Saskatchewan  in the Spring of 1972, the Atlantic provinces in the fall, Alberta  at the end of that year, British  Columbia,  the   Yukon  and   the  Northwest    Territories   in , the  Spring of 1973, and Quebec and  the rest of Ontario early in 1974.  The code is alpha-numeric ���  composed   of   both  letters  and  numbers ��� and always takes the  form of ANA  NAN, where A  represents a letter of the alphabet and N a number from 0 to 9.  There is a space between the  first  three   and   the last three  characters.  A typical example is K2P 0B6.  The code contains enough information  to  determine  a  person's address right down to one  side of a city street between intersections, and sometimes even  further. The albove example K2P  0>B6, indicates the south side of  Nepean Street between Bank and  O'Connor, in downtown Ottawa.  ���Sometimes the postal code will  indicate a single building, if it  is  a large apartment or office  ibuilding  containing many  individual units. Or it can indicate a  single organization or company,  if it receives a large volume of  mail from the post office regularly.  But in urban areas it never  indicates am area larger than  one side of a city block! So it enables the post office to program  its machines to sort mail right  down to very small sections of  the city.  Once your residence gets its  code, it becomes a permanent  part of your address. It will ne-  ver change, although* if you  move to. another residence, you  will inherit a new code.  To ensure that the postal code  is effectively implemented  across Canada, the post office is  spending some $60 to $70 million on equipment over the next  ' five years, in the 15 cities which  account for 85% of all mail in  Canada���Halifax, Quebec City,  Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Ham  iLton, London, Windsor, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Calgary,  Edmonton, Vancouver and Victoria.  Any uncoded mail, Mr. Cote  warns, will naturally not go  through the machines* and wall  have to be sorted by hand.

Many people make the mistake  of referring to all insects as  bugs. This is as bad as calling  caterpillars worms. Worms are  a distinct group of animals ���  the earthworm, for example. Insects comprise an entirely different group. No insect at any  stage of its life should properly  be referred to as a worm. Similarly, bugs are a distinct group  or order of insects, with characteristics that make them different from all other insects.  Potato bugs and lady bugs are  not bugs, but beetles. Giant water bugs, squash bugs and bed  bugs are true bugs.  Senior Citizens^ Association,  Branch 69, met on"April) 15th, in  the Sechelt Legion Hall, with 60  memibers present. Mrs. Madge  Hansen, presidfent, called iflor  two minutes silence in memory  of Mrs. Olive McGregor. A donation from the branch will be  made to the Cancer Research  Fund in remembrance of her.  Reports from the comimittees  indicate many diversified activities. The paid-up membership to  date is 165. A welcome was given to new members Mr. and  Mrs, Derby and Mr. and Mrs.  Graumuan. The greeters for the  Letters fo Editor  Editor: Proposed changes in  the Public Service Superannuation act has two surprises in  store for all civil servants. One  a very pleasant one, and the  other not so pleasant ��� in falet-  a very cruel blow.  Civil' servants in the 50-55 age  bracket, with 20-30 years service, may retire with their modest pension if they wish. This  may be welcomed by the civil  servants who have financial  means, and with their small  pension may take up other pursuits and endeavors they have  dreamed about in the past.  But the ones who are not in  this position get the bitter medicine. They may be retired or fired, they have a choice of two  words, but they mean the same  thing.  The government, under the  proposed changes in the P.S.S.  Act, take the right to fire civil'  servants, at age 50-55. This is the  cruel part of Bill C270, now before parliament.  On Feb. 25 Stanley H. Knowles  M.P. for Winnipeg North Cen*-  tre, wrote as follows: "I ear-  nsetly hope that when we get  into committee of the whole and  reach Part VH we can. persuade  the government to get fair play  and justice written into this aspect of the measure"  May I suggest that every civil  servant write their meimlber of  parliament today. Your protest  will help ��� especially now that  an election seems to be on the  : distant horizon.;  __;��  ���OTTO NORDLING.^  NURSES APPROVE  Approval by the legislature of  a $500,000 spending estimate for  the development of; alternative  health care facilities is regarded by the Registered Nurses' Association of British Columbia as  a step in the right direction.  "We will be interested in learn  ing precisely how the government plans to implement these  programs," said Mrs. Monica  Angus, president, after a meeting of the Association's Board of  Directors. The association advocates the provision of home care  services and the establishment  of intermediate care facilities as  necessary to a comprehensive  health care delivery system.  day were Mrs. M.

These figures were revealed  by the Hon. J. V. Clyne, chairman and chief executive officer  of MacMillan Bloedel, in the annual report to shareholders,  which was released April 12.  The company's earnings for  1970, which were reported earlier, declined from $42,550,721 in  1969 ($2.04 per share) to $17,425-  816 (83 cents per share) aflJthough  total income increased slightly.  The head of Canada's largest  forest products company stated  that "the present systems and:  concepts involved in the allocation of fair returns to labor and  capital have become less and  less appropriate to the requirements of the times.  "'It is imperative that imagination and1 leadership be exhibited by management, labor and  government in determSning newer more miature approaches under which all parties would bene  fit but which would work in  phase with economic requirements."  North America's economic  problems, said Clyne, "stem  from   a   continuing  failure   by  Western society to exert the seif-  discipline essential1 to sustained  growth and employment without  giving rise to destructive inflationary pressures. As a result of  such failure, governments must  necessarily apply fiscal and  monetary restrictions in an attempt to control inflation.  "Such measures, unfortunately  are far from precise in their effect and, as has happened beifore  the most recent application of  fiscal and monetary restraints  ouiminated; in a sharp recession  in both the United' States and  Canada."  A combination of depressed  markets for wood products, in-  flatibniary increases in costs and  a very sharp decrease in the  value of sales to the U.S. and  other countries due to the freeing of the Canadian dollar had'  contributed! substantially to the  decline in company earning--.  "The largest single cause of  the decrease in profits in 1970,  however," he said, "was the loss  oif production and the loss of  sales resulting directly or indirectly from strikes which occurred in British Columbia during  the year at times when such production and sales were crucial  to company profits."

W. K. Kiernan.  Total circulation of the magazine's Winter 1970 issue, includ1-  ing counter sales and bulk sales,  was approximately 260,000. Business manager G. L. Levy estimates that 265,000 copies of the  Summer 19717 issue will be required.      '-..,''-'."'���  In 1960 the magazine had an  average printing of 97,000 and  5,000 subscribers for each issue.  Beautiful Britisih Columbia magazine, which has subscribers in  every province and! territory of  Canada, every state of the United States, and more than 30  other countries, was founded in  1959.  School dental surveys continue  ���Through voluntary participation of local dentists, the board  of School" District No. 48 and the  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit, a  school dental survey was recently conducted in randomly selected schools in the Howe Sound  area.  Results of this survey will be  available,for future planning in  relation to dental nealth needs  and allocation of funds for dental programs in the respective  localities. After tabulation by the-  provincial department of vital  Statistics in Victoria, the statistical analysis will be made available to those people or groups  who may have an interest in local community health levels and  planning.  The actual examinations were  done by local dentists' who volunteered, both their own time and  that of their assistant who acted as recorder. It is worthwhile  noting that without exception,  every dentist, asked jto make this  significant contribution to their  com'muhdty and offered his complete ^ co-operation.  The organizing of the project  was carried- out locally by the  provincial, public health dental  consultant and Mr. Jdhn Philion  of the department of vital statistics.  The dental team was also appreciative of the courtesy and  co-operation they were extended by members of the teaching  staiff at the various schools. Every effort was made by the principals, in particular, to provide  falcilities as adequate to the survey needs as possible.  Onice again in 1970, the provincial' department of Preventive  Dentistry was unable1 to make  any significant increase in dental public health prograrnimdnig  in the Coast Garibaldi Health  Unit. As in past years, the dental extern program was carried  on at Pemberton and Texada Is-  Cburcb Services  X��  Let The People Praise Thee, O God   j  land. The three year old birthday card program was carried  on in Squamish and Gibsons.  The major obstacle preventing  am expansion of these services is  lack of dental personnel ��� both  private, practitioners and dental public health auxiliaries. Fortunately two new graduates will'  be locating in the Coast Gari-  foaldli Health Unit area in 1971,  somewhat alleviating the shortage of dentists. Hopefully, some  method of utilizing Dental Public Health auxiliaries will be established as well in the 'forthcoming year.  Sports Festival  starts May 20  The second annual B.C. Festival of Sports, May 20 through  June 7, wiiiil be the largest athletic event ever staged in North  America. Last year, in its initial  staging, the Festival of Sports  brought together 125,000 athletes  from many parts of the globe  competing in 47 individual sports  in 64 centres.       '  Already, 123 communities have  signified intentions of staging  events in 1971, B.C.'s Centennial  year. Three more sports ��� basketball, football and handball ���  will be part of the Festival this  year and it appears some 200,000  athletes will be involved overall.  "This is really encouraging,"  said R. B. Worley, deputy minister, department of travel industry, the man who conceived  the idea of the Festival of Sports  "This success story is attributed  to the enthusiasm of the councils  and coriiimittees of the participating sports and communities  and the B.C. Sports Federation."  The Festival of Sports is sponsored by the" Sports Federation  in co-operation with the provincial government.

Why is this?  Answer: At first glance this  may not appear to be a suitable  question to answer in a legal advice column. Actually it is very  suitable because it pertains to  our constitution which is much  in the news lately. It is impossible to understand our, country's  constitution as it is today without knowing something of its de-  velloipment.  20 Years Experience  FACE STONE, BRICK  BLOCK,  FIREPLACE  FLOWER PLANTERS  Free Estimates  Guaranteed Workmanship  Box 259 Gibsons, B.C.V  Jf alaron Jf arm  Excellent facilities available  for boarding and riding  your horse  * Individual paddocks  * Lght sawdust ring  * y* mile exercise track  * Bridle trails  Registered blood stock  for sale  R.R. 2, Gibsons  886-7729  SECHELT BEAUTY SALON  Mary M.

In  1849, Vancouver Island became  a colony of Great Britain. In  1858, what is now the mainland  portion of British Columbia was  constituted the colony of New  Caledonia. In 1866, the two col-*  onies were united as British Columbia.  In 1867, the three colonies of  Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and  Canada (earlier Upper and1 Lower Canada) were federally united and constituted the four provinces of Nova Scotia, New  Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec.  The federal parliament-' couttti  pass statute law governing Canada as a whole and the provinces were empowered to pass statutes on provincial affairs.  In 1871, British Columbia joined Canada as the sixth province  (Manitoba having been adimit-  ted in 1870).  British Columbia* residents are  therefore, in the year 1971, indeed celebrating their fourth cen  tenary in 13 years ������ the first being the 100th anniversary of the  formation of the colony of New  Caledonia, for mainlanders, or  the formation of the colony of  Vancouver Island, for Vancouver Islanders; the second being  the 100th anniversary of the unification of the two colonies, the  third1 being the 100th anniversary of the federation of the Dominion of Canada and the fourth  being the 100th anniversary of  British Columbia joining Canada;  as a province.

In a major policy speech at the natton-  al conference on assistance to  physicians in Ottawa, April 7, he  revealed the large role reserved  for doctors' assistants and referred to functions that could be  handled by these 'super nurses'.  'We are gratified to learn that  the Health Minister shares our  view that there is no need to introduce a new category of health  worker to provide assistance to  physicians," said Mrs. Monica  Angus,  RNABC president.  Introduction of physician s* assistants, a proposed new category of health worker, was recommended in the federal government's Task Force Reports  on the cost of health services in  Canada. Last fall, the Registered Niurses Association supported  the stand of the Canadian Nurses' Association in opposing, the  introduction of such a new category of health worker.

DATED at Victoria, B.C.  this 22 day of March, 1971.  DAN CAMPBELL,  Minister of Municipal Affairs.  8       Coast News, Arpril 21, 1971.  Fishing license  plan outlined  by minister  Non-resident sports fishermen  in tidal waters will pay a licence  fee based on boats, riot people,  and all proceeds will go to build  coho and spring salmon hatcheries.  ���  Fisheries' Minister Jack Davis  in announcing the new regulations says that non-resident fishermen pay a licence fee from  $15 to $75 for privately owned  vessels depending on length.  Charter and rental boats servicing non-resident sports1 fishermen will be classed1 as com-,  mercial and pay the same licence fees as fisihenmen in the  salmon fleet, from $100 to $400.  The only exception will be  charter or rental Canadiarif boats  under 30 feet which will not pay  a licence fee. This will exempt  most marina operations renting  small boats on a daily or hourly basis. ���,���'���.������  The new fee structure'will go  into operation in 1972. It is expected there will be a $400,000  return the first year.  Here is how the licence structure works:  Charter or rental vessels under 30 feet owned by Canadians  and servicing non-residents will  not pay a fee.  Private non-resident boats, under 15 ft. will pay $15; boats 15  to 29 feet, $25; 30 to 39 feet, $50  and those 40 ft. and over, $75.  Charter or rental1 vessels under 30 ft. owned' by non-residents will pay $100.  Charter or rental vessels 30  ft. or over owner by Canadians  or non-residents will pay $200  _Jor vessel's under 15 net tons and  $400 for those over 15 tons.  The licence will be in the form  of a decal which' must be attached to the boat. Licences will  be available from any office of  the Department of Fisheries and  mail applications will be receivr  ed. . :';'  Issuing offices will be set up  during summer periods at suoK  points at Bedwell Harbour  where a lange number oif U.S.  vessels clear customs.  In September it was proposed  to licence non-resident fishermen starting in 1971. Fees would  range from $1 per day to $25 for  the season.  Groups in the tourist industry  were concerned that publicity  brochures had1 been printed for  1971 stating no sport fishing licence fee was required for tidal  waters.  For these reasons) the minister reconsidered the licence proposal and will now bring in regulations for the new fee structure before 1972.  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  April 13 marked the birthday  of the Roberts Creek Auxiliary  to St. Mary's Hospital. It was.  seiven years ago that 24 women  met in Earl Haig camp and1 organized the auxiliary, voting  Mrs. L. Flumerfelt as its first  president.  Here for an Easter vacation  are Ralph Galliford with Michael and Steve.  Some youngsters spending Eas  ter wiDh their grandparents* are  Mary Jean and Ray Dyke, Burnaby, with Mr. and Mrs. J. L.  Dyke; Lacey and Irene Bradford with the Ben Caves; Tommy and Brian White with the  Bertram M. Whites.  Mr. and Mrs. H. Froese, with  Beverly and Donald, Vancouver  have been guests at the Newman  home.  April 19, 1964, will be remembered as the date that the Roberts Creek Players Club dissolved1 and became the Tidewater  Players.    The   original    group  formed in January of 1940 with  a memlberslhip of 15. The Tidewaters ceased to. function in 1965  having at that time 51 members.  Attempts were made the following  year  to   find  and  produce  some entertainment but nothing  came of them, and after a few  rehearsals interest petered out.  Mr.   and  Mrs.   R. B. Walton  are enjoying a visit from Mr.  and Mrs. D. M. Walton of Liverpool, England.  Four stamps in maple leaf issue  Twenty-six million stamps depicting the maple in spring will  be issued April 14. This is the  first issue of the series Maple  Leaf in Four Seasons. Designed  by Miss Alma Duncan of Galetta  Ontario, the 6c .stamp'shows  two of the maple's wing3d seeds  Library issue  still under study  Gibsons council is' studying a  memorandum from the Library  Development Commission which  calls for standards of library administration which some libraries object to.  The commission's standards  call for regulation of six aspects  of public library service: total  bookstock, area oif the library,  staff, hours of service, telephone  (for larger libraries only), and  financial support. Requirements  for the first two (bookstock and  area) have been postponed1 in  order to extend the time required for1 improvement. The remaining four standards came  into force on April 1 of this  year. These standards deal with  the training and payment of  staff, the minimum number of  hours the library must be open,  the need for a liisted telephone  in all libraries serving over  2,500 people; and the minimum  local support required (for populations up to 10,000, minimum  requirement i_> $1,000 or $1.50  per capita, whichever is greater; up to 25,000, $2 per capita;  up to 50,000* $2.50 per capita).  Smaller libraries likef that of  Gibsons have protested these requirements which went into effect April 1. Gibsons library  chairman maintains that it will  kill the volunteer help idea:  which has kept Gibsons library  in operation ever since it started. The problem came before  the last council meeting and it  was decided that further study  be given it.  HIGH FLYERS  Probably no / bird holds a  warmer place in the sentimental  heart of the. nation than . the  Canada goose, though many of  us may be aware of him only in  the spring and fall days of the  great migrations. In view of the  high regard in which this feathered, lord of the northlancls is  held, it should come as no surprise to learn that he is reputed  to be the only migratory bird  capable of surmounting the 26,-  000 foot barrier of the Himalayas  poised among sprouting blades  of grass. The stamp measures  24_non by 4ftm!m and is being  printed in five color Mthcigraphy  by Ashton-Potter Limited of Toronto.  .The maple leaf has long been  associated with Canada. Historical references to its regard  as an emblem of this country  date as far back as the seventeenth century. Formal recognition of it as an emblem began  in 1868 when the mapie leaf appeared in the coats of arms  granted to the provinces1 of Quebec and Ontario by Queen Vic  toria. The Canadian Coat of  Arms authorized! in 1921 included  a similar sprig of leaves as a  distinctly Canadian symbol. Today Canada's national flag- is  recognized around the world by  the stylized red maple leaf in  its centre.  Maple syrup and sugar, products concentrated. from the sap  of the maple tree, is a crop  unique to North America. Maple  syrup production, principally in  the provinces oif Nova Scotia,  New Brunswick, Quebec and.  Ontario has a yearly value of  between ten and fifteen million  dollars.
