This is known as a green belt  around the Village.  Secondly, the village would  like to eventually have all the  area it serves' within its water  system. This way we can give  water to. customers right from  our source instead of having water  mains   travelling   one   half  Billed as a delegation of petitioners7 re Boundary Extension,  three representatives from Henry Road and two from Pratt  road appeared at Tuesday  night's meeting of Gilbsons council at the request of council.

Mayor Peterson agreed saying it .was to include both sides of Henry Road.  He wanted to find out if the people want to join the village.  Praift. Road, had petitioned to  cxorie i_i. We do not want to be  in the water buaness outside of  the village, he added.  To another question the mayor  replied   that   there   would   be  about 50 people involved in the  area serviced outside the village.  To the next question he said  that yes, if Pratt Road people  came in that would leave the  Henry road people alone outside  the village.  What would be the advantage  ���if they joined? Free as regards  livestock but if they remained  outside they might have to double fence their property if cattle  were kept. If they were in the  village   such   operations' would  be phased out in time. It could  g6 on for years as it is now.

The usual services such as  roads, street lighting, ditching  and public works program also  come in with incorporation. This  oif course cannot be done the  first year. The advantage here is  that you have aT say in what to  do with your tax dollars'. -  . Question 3 ��� Water rates are  less. Today's rate being $30 per  year, with a frontage rate on the  tax notice of 10 cents per foot,  minimum $6 and maximum of  $12 per parcel fronting annually.

The village is only asking; if  the; residents in this area are  interested in incorporating, and  if it is the will, of these people  not to come in then the matter  will be dropiped.  ���Gibsons Council.  "GEORGIAN CHAPTER, Royal Arch Masons, presented a cheque, Saturdaynighlt, to Mr. Tony  |W!aigemakers of St. Mary's Hospital, (left) for  $1,200 to furnish the Georgian Room; in the new  addition to the hospital, in memory of Excellent  Companion James E^ Parker. The presentation  was made by Ted Osborne (centre) and James  Garlick, Excellent First Principal of tile Lodge.  ight rates outlined to CdfC  x Would the cost of sewage be  to consideration;  on Henry Road people too? No.  just sewer users. There will be  some people ijniside the village  not on the s^wer system and  they would=7ni6t be paying. The  cleric .Dave Johnston added that  if the area was subdivided and  requiring sewers there could be  a basis charge.  Mrs.  Skellett-asked if, Pratt  inquired how far down towards  the water would the line go. The  mayor replied that the plan was  to go one lot past Chaster road  and one lot from Pratt Road.. ._,  How many. people would be in  volved? .The answer was about  25 or more. Mr. Blakeman inquired "If we go into the village  we would not see great changes?" The clerk replied that he  did not think so. He remanded  ���   Present freight trucking on the  Sunshine Coast does not yet extend   from   Gibsons   to   Pender  Harbour.

Isabel Dawson reported to the  Coast Newst Tuesdiay morninig.  Details as to time will be announced when available. Mrs.  Dawson reported she had worked hard to get this Powell River  visit on the ischedule.  It is understood at this time  that the Royal party will* arrive  in Powell River aboard the Bri  tannia and depart the same way.  Friday, May 7 will be the  school holiday for this school  district, J. S. Metzler, board  secretary-treasurer reports.  A proposed visit of 12 Pender-  Harbour honor students to the  legislature while the Queen is  visiting there was referred to  R. R. Hanna, district superintendent for funther examination.  He was of the opinion that it  would ibe difficult to arrange  such a visit at that particular  time.  Argument on the hiring of a  planner for the Sunshine Coast  Regional board was settled at a  special meeting of the board  Thursday night when it decided  to retain the present part time  planner on a permanent basis.  The issue came, before the regular meeting last week when the  board's mind did not appear to  be settled on what should be  done. At a. committee meeting  last Thursday night the matter  was resolved and E.R. Cuyilits,  temporary planner, was made  permanent. Building inis-pector F.  A. Reyburn will continue to  make his reports to the board  secretary.  In last week's paper a paragraph which stated Mr. Reyburn  objected.to the' proposed appointment should have been attributed to Director Harry Almond.  The school .board is watching  idloseiy"--the situation involving  possible strike action connected  with the teachers' pension plan  which passed its second1 reading  Monday in the legislature.  Teachers have threatened! to  strike if Bill Four is passed  without better allowances for  teachers presently retired, as  Mr. David Smethurst of Sechelt  Teachers Association explained  to the board meeting of last  week.  Legislative procedure is that  on second reading a ball passes  to committee for clause by  clause examination and it is  quite likely that it will be in the  committee stage that strike action might be precipitated by  teachers. After leaving the committee stage the bill receives its  formal third reading-and becomes law.  Mr. Smethurst said that if a  strike becomes necessary it was  hoped that it would1 be for one  day and the board would be notified' iimmediately. It was their  intention to have people avail-  abfe at the schools, to take care  of any students who arrive at  the schools. Twelve hours notice  would be given.  Mr. Smethurst was asked whe  ther members of CUPE would  ���be allowed to cross the picket  Jine in order to maintain and  protect the school buildings and  he was of the opinion this would  be allowed.  In reply to his question, Mr.  Smethurst was informed that if  there weTe a strike the teachers'  contract would be considered  broken and no fringe benefits or  sick leave would apply.  TEE-OFF SATURDAY  The Sunshine Coast Golf and  Country club official tee-off for  the season will be held Saturday,  March 20 at 12 noon. A shotgun  tee-pff will take place at 12:30  sharp and a tournament will follow during the afternoon.  Dinner will be served at 4:30  and the presentation of trophies  at 5.30 p.m. A dance will follow  at 9 p.m.  District School Superintendent  R. R. Hanna reporting to the  school board on the results of  the departmental January ex-  amrlnations said he was pleased  with the results.  "In January, 32 senior Elphinstone students wrote a total of  43 departmental examinations,  18 geography, 12 mathematics,  and 13 chemistry. '  "We are pleased to report that  our students passed 35 of these  examinations While failing in  only eight papers. This produces  a pass rate of 81.4% and a failure rate of 18.6%.  "Generally speaking the school  1 mark was lower than the department '�� whiich indicates that  our school's academic standards  of evaluation are sound.  "We are very pleased with  these results. In several cases  the student's classwork had received a failing grade, but his  performance on the departmental examination was sufficient to  produce a pass.  "As a rule of thumb, we advise our students that they require a C plus grade or better  in their -previous cou^ :to J_e  reasonably assured of success in  the departmental examination  course. Therefore a student taking Chemistry 12 should have  achieved a C plus or better in  Chemistry 11.       '  "We   are   especially   pleased  Cutoff on way  Hon. Isabel Dawson, minister  without portfolio, has expressed  ; her -pleasure that approval has  been given for the go-ahead on  construction of the Langdale-  Gibsons cut-off.  Approval to proceed with the  first phase of construction, involving the expenditure of $500,-  000, was included in the esti  mates of the highways department presented to the Igislature.  The total cost of the Langdale-  Gibsons cut-off will be $1,200,000  and work on the first phase is  expected to begin shortly.  Mrs. Dawson said, "The surveys   have  already been done  and the project is all set to go.  I'm very happy about this an-  nounce-ment."  he hoped to keep rates at their  present level. Gibsons had a self-  management arrangement which  would remain until such time as  the complete takeover of Hani-  sen's Transfer was completed by  his company.  In a comparison of freight  idharges the rates to Gibsons and  Nanaimo were outlined starting  at $2 minimum up to 100 lbs. to  Gibsons and $4.40 to Nanaimo;  The sliding scale ranged up to  $7.50 for 900 to 1,000 pounds with  established rates up to the 20,000  with the results our students  achieved on these examinations  because many oif them had borderline passes or low C's in  their previous .courses. In fact,  am analysis of the group that  wrote these examinations indicates that only six students had  a general standing of C plus or  better. It was noted that those  who failed courses had either;  received a borderline pas's or a  low C grade in their previous  . course in the same subject, with  one exception. An analysis of the  total letter grade level of this  group is as follows: 2 B; 4 C  pllus; 14 C; 12 borderline or  doubtful.  "As a result of these exaimin-  ations, three oif our students  have satisfied the requirements  for graduation."

That water agreement  To complete the explanation of the condition of water negotiations between Gibsons and the- Reglioniai District board it should  be pointed out that the final clause in the terms d'aid down by Mayor  Peterson should be part of the explanation.  This clause stated that at the end of 1970 Gibsons would review the situation. The mayor also .gave the Regional District  board the same right.  However it appears that the Regional Board did not like the  idea of having the situation), after becoming involved in restricted  negotiations, be turned down by the mayor. The Regional Board  would have the same privilege of refusing to go on with the arrangement but would that be likely after havling borne the expense  of starting something they could not finish?  The Coast News is pointing out this situation so people living  under jurisdiction of the Regional Board would be able to see what  is involved. The same applies to the taxpayers of Gibsons.  One question to be answered would be whether Gibsons could  bring itself to face the same situation if the terms had been laid  down to Gibsons by the Regional Board?  This water situation for the entire Sunshine Coast area is too  big for negotiations to be such that they cannot be accepted by  both sides. This is not to suggest that Gibsons should knuckle under to Regional Board desires nor should the Regional Board be  placed in a similar situation. There must be an agreement which  will work equally well for both sides. Perhaps there is suchl an  agreement. Ratepayers of both sides are watting for it!  Oops! Sorry!  . We note with satisfaction the Coast News Oops Sorry method  of dealing with mistakes that occur, as is usual in all types of publications, has been observed by such a daily as the Vancouver Pro-  ��� Vince. ..  It is a method^which has b^enusedsuccfesislfuHiyby the^editofr  during many years in newspaper work in other climes ^rid has  usually drawn favorable comment from readers. But it must be  pointed out that all of these mistakes or discrepancies are not committed by the Coast News staff. There are times when we gallantly cover up for mistakes made by other people. However the Coast  News has broad enough shoulders and the right kind of heart to  shoulder such blame. It is good public relations and we would like  to keep it that way.  Those were the days!  In the 1917 session of parliament the Income War Tax Act imposed the first general income tax in Canada. The previsions applied to 1917 income. The rate of normal tax which applied at that  time to individuals was 4 percent.on the amount of income over  $1,500 ir^ the care of unmarried persons or of widows or widowers  without dependent children, br over $3,000 in the case of all other  persons. Exemptions were lowered in 1918 to $1,000 single and $2,000  married.  Today the average income tax payer divvies up about 20 percent of his income. Perhaps his salary is in like ratio with Ms taxation. Maybe the taxpayer is just running fast in order to stand  still... Ah yes!  Those were the days!

By FRED ALLNUTT, Local 297  A-recent editorial in a local  ���paper implied that union leaders are responsible for the militancy that is so prevalent in the  'labor movement of late. This is  an opinion unfortunately held by  all too many uninformed people,  the truth of the matter is that  the day of the all powerful labor boss, the little Caesar, who  manipulates the union members  for his own profit and nuns his  union through a cadre of toughs,  has long since come to an end.  Today's union is so thoroughly  democratic that it tends, all too  often, to get bogged down oh insignificant   items.    Items    that  nevertheless must be given consideration and debated because  the democratic process leaves no  room for ignoring any issue put  forward by a  member.  All* issues that are of significance to  the membership- must come before the membership and  only  they can direct the executive on  what action is to be taken. Issues of such magnitude that they  come to the attention of the general   publie,  are  negotiated by  elected committees and must, in  virtually all   cases,  be  ratified  by the membership.  This is where the proof of the  system's integrity comes, time  and time again the negotiating  recommends acceptance of a  new agreement only to have it  voted down by the rank and file.  Approximately 15% of proposed  contracts> meet this fate.  In reacting in this way the  membership is not only refusing,  to accept a proposed new contract but are, in effect, voting  non-��conifidenee iri their elected  negotiating comimittee. More often than not at. least one of the  senior officers of the local union  such as the president, sits on the  negotiating comimittee. When  that committee brings back a  proposed contract and strongly  recommends its acceptance, only to have it voted down by the  membership, it leaves no room  for doubt who runs the union.  In B-C. recently and in particular in the pa'st year, you have  seen numerous examples of this  in action, remember the longshore strike ��� three times the  rank and file voted down settlements recommended by their negotiating committees. Even closer to home look at the pulp sulphite negotiations. The settlement brought back and recommended by the wage delegates  was nearly voted down. It' was  only by the skin of our teeth that  the delegates were not ordered  by the general membership to  go back to the table and come  up with a better package. The  recurrent strikes and lockouts  in the construction industry were  another example.  The membership has the opportunity to cast a secret vote  whether or not to accept management's offer, very often they  take the militant stand, in opposite to the cooler heads on the  negotiating committees, who  have had the opportunity to talk  to the company negotiators, get  the: feel of the situation, and are  consequently better able to assess the climate.  A union, like all democratic  institutions, is pyramid shaped,  with a broad base in the grassroots, building up Jto its chief  elected executive officer at the  peak of the pyramid. In most  cases this is the local union president. Regardless of what you  may have heard, the local union  is an independent entity that is  loosely connected to a national,  or international brotherhood.  The local president like all elected officials has only that  power the electors see fit to  grant him and therefore is exceedingly responsive to the feeling, needs and demands of those  electors. Needless to say a good  president like a good politician  must be able to sense the mood  of the members and this mood  changes in direct response to the  financial climate.  When the climate is right ���  inflation under control, interest  rates steady at a reasonable  rate, the average worker wants  no part of a strike unless he's  pushed to the wall. No' union  president would'have enough oratorical ability to persuade him  to strike. However when conditions change and we have had  the type of situation we have  had in the last couple of years,  How about ferns?  By A. R. BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute. Ottawa  If you have a shady area in  your garden where it is difficult  to grow most plants, why not try  hardy ferns? They will not give  you an impressive display of  flowers, but their soft silken  beauty will be with you all summer long.  To give ferns a good start, select a shady or semi-shady area  not under shallow rooted trees  such as elms, but in a place  shaded by the house or by trees  during the hottest hours of the  day. Most will withstand a limited amount of sunshine if it is  filtered through tree foliage.  Proper soil preparation is essential to success with these  plants. In their natural woodland habitat they grow in decayed leaves long fallen from  the trees. They continue to grow  through leaves that descend each  fall. If the site you select for  growing ferns is well drained arid  is composed of good garden soil,  all that is necessary is to dig in  lots of well decayed leaves, peat  moss arid comport.  TIPS ON BOGUS BILLS  Only look at fives, 10s and 20s,  since ones and twos aren't worth  the trouble copying and anything over a 20 is scrutinized  too carefully. -Be careful of a  biH's color, detail of printing and >  texture of paper. Most bogus  bills have a certain flimsiness  about them and tear very easily.  They are usually scruffy and appear old since new bills show up  defects top readily If a bill definitely arouses your suspicion  take a close look at it and compare it with a "good bill; once  you accept a bad bill, you're  stuck with it.  SEA OTTER FILM  The story of efforts to re-establish the sea '��� otter on the west  coast of Vancouver Island by  the Fish and Wildlife branch is  told iri a 16 mm, 40 minute color  motion picture now being seen  in British Columbia. Inquiries  about the film should be directed to the Fish and Wildlife  Branch, Department of Recreation and Conservation, Victoria.  If your soil is poor or heavy,  remove it to a depth of 10 inches  and refill with a natural soil  mixture of good soil, leaf mould  and compost. To emphasize a  woodland scent place a few  rocks at random and a few decayed logs here and there. In  areas of poor drainage elevate  the bed with an edging of weathered stones. This will not only  assist drainage, but will give  you crevices and cracks iri which  to grow miniature ferns.  Ferns cam be planted almost  anytime during the year, if it  just means transplanting from  one place to another, but very  early spring or early fall is the  best time to get them from nurseries. To plant, dig a hole large  enough so that the rhizomes can  be spread in their natural position. Hold tht pJiants upright and  place them so that the crown or  buds are just at ground level.  Then fill in around them with  small stones or gravelly soil or  for larger ferns use some quite  sizable stones from one to three  inches in diameter  Summer care for the fern bed  is probably less important than  for the average garden border.  Weeds need to be pulled out as  they occur. Under shady conditions this is not apt to be frequent. Water around the plants  with a soaker hose as overhead  watering will tend to beat down  the fronds. In early July after  a heavy rain, mulch the bed with  a good organic material, such  as well decayed leaves,' buckwheat hulls or cocoa shells.  In the fall don't remove the  old fern leaves, but allow them  to settle down in the bed. Apply  a top dressing of newly fallen  leaves and hold these in place  with an old screen or snow fence  If the faM' is dry, keep the plants  well watered.  In early spring when the covering is dry, *a__e off most of  the leaves applied in the fall. If  possible, crush them in the hand  and replace them around1 the  fern roots. If this is riot possible,  remove the leaves to the compost heap. Do not use a rake on  the fern bed as this tool dan-ages the tender young croziers (fid  dieheads).  dissatisfaction sets in among the  rank and file and they soon push  the militants to the. forefront.  They have no intention of losing what thej' have fought so  many years to gain. Like a cornered   animal   they   get   their  backs up and are prepared to  fight.

One of it's disadvantages  is that in a rapidly advancing  technology, one can go broke so  much faster.  An enterprise, either government or private, may be planned  by brilliant men who are operating in the clear light of the inost  mocJern scientific knowledge available. By the time the factory  is built, however, a change has  come albout. Another brilliant  chap, who wasn't noticed at the  time, made a major technologic  advance in the meantime. He  wins. The pioneer group loses.  Pity about that.  More's the pity, some tremendous* investment losses seem inevitable while the present pace  continues...  It may at this moment be affecting an> enterprise in which  you and I, as taxpayers, hold a  very heavy investment ��� The  St. Lawrence Seaway which  seemed, as recently as 1959, to  be one of the technologic masterpieces of this continent.  The seaway was a long time  abuilding, beginning with the  French explorers and extending  Notice To Parents  In the event that the Sechelt Teachers Association take  strike action on the issue of teacher pensions the Board  off School Trustees wishes It to be known that in accordance  with the requirements of Division 4:06 of the Rules of  the Council of Public Instruction, schools wilt remain open.

It  finally became a joint enterprise  of Canada and the United States.  By 1959, they had completed a  system which provided 27. feet  of water for 2,300 miles from  the Atlantic Ocean to the head  of the Great Lakes.  The cost to Canada was $340  millions, to the U.S. in the international reaches of the water  $14 millions. (These were costs  for the panali and lock works  done between 1952 and 1959. Both  countries had spent multitudes  of millions previously on other  works.)  When Queen Elizabeth II and  President Dwight Eisenhower  opened the great waterway on  June 26, 1959, it was generally  agreed that technology had extended ocean front right into the  heart of the Central Canadian  and Amen'can industrial regions.  Eleven years later, the Seaway  is in trouble. The operation is  losing money. Only, the bulk  shipping of ores and grains is  increasing. The general cargo,  which is the money maker for  the inland ports, is steadily declining.  Ocean going ships are abandoning the route. In 1970, 358  fewer ships used the Seaway  than the year before.  The reason appears to be not  that the Seaway is not just as  efficient as its builders had forecast. What happened is that  technology found a more efficient, method in the past decade.  Coratainerization has been developed. The Seaway wasn't  built to accommodate container  cargoes. There was some use of  the practice in 1969. White Pass  and Yukon Railroad of Vancouver was one pioneer.  But apparently in 1959, none of  the wise men could forsee that  by 1970 big industries in Chicago, Hamilton and Cleveland  would be finding it more profit-  *able to ship their containers by  rail to tidewater ports. In 1959,  railways. couldn't possibly compete with shipping, not even inland shipping. Remember?  In 1970. a special report by  Transport Minister Jamieson  contains' these ominous words*:  "By late 1970 there were indications that a significant part of  the general cargo moving on the  Seaway, particuillarly iron and  steel, might be lost to the newl .  container services."  We may rejoice that ocean  ports such as Vancouver are  getting new. business, thanks to  technology. But the joy is not unalloyed. We taxpayers now have  a shaky investment in the Se.  Lawrence Seaway.  IN LIFE  Enjoy It Now!

Cansuiiiers# x_  rtews  and  yiews1^:J|  Consumers' Association of Canada  Don't count on saving a great  deal of money on your food bills  with the aid of a freezer. Consumers' Association of Canada  would like to remind you the big  plus in owning a freezer is the  convenience.  You should be prepared for  the cost of operation. Proper  moisture - vaporproof packaging  and containers are a must. The  air in' the freezer is dry. If it  penetrates the food, it can rob  it of flavor, moisture and color.  ���Electricity, servicing and depreciation are also red ink items  The size of your family, your  shopping habits and the type of  foods you will want to freeze  should govern the size and type  of freezer you buy. A rough estimate of capacity required per  person is three to four cubic  feet for city dwellers and five  to six cubic feet for rural families. Remember, when the freez-  ed size is given in pounds, divide  by 35 to convert to approximate  cubic foot capacity.  . Before choosing your freezer,  know where you will place it.  Take into account the doors,  stairs and areas it will have to  be carried through to reach the  storage spot. Be sure the floor  area is strong enough ��� a fully  stocked freezer can weigh as  much as half a ton. The freezer  motor needs a dry place with a  temperature of at least 40 deg.  F. for ideal conditions'. Unheal  ed basements and garages are  not recommended.  One decision you will have to  make is whether an upright or  chest type will best suit your  purposes. Uprights take less  floor space and give easier access to the food. There is better  even-cold distrdlbution but you  will lose more cold while the  door is open. Chest models are  cheaper to buy, and are better  for storing bulky and odd-shaped foods like poultry and roasts.  With the exception of the more  expensive frost - free uprights,  freezers need defrosting once or  twice a year. This means removing all food and insulating it in  newspapers under a blanket until the ice in the freezer melts.  Look for a drain at the bottom  to allow the melted ice to drain  off, otherwise you will just have  to sop up the water. An electric  fan played on the frosting will  zip it off in jig-time.  You may find some freezers  with interior linings that overlap  and with sharp corners that can  make cleaning difficult. Look  for a smooth interior. Most liners are made of porcel'ain enamel but you will find some aluminum, steel or plastic linings.  If the lining is plastic be sure  the corners are sufficiently reinforced to prevent cracking if  anything is dropped.  Most freezers have thin walls  because  of the  introduction   of  foam polyurethane insulation.  Ask about insulation material.  Another important consideration  is to be sure the inner and outer walls- are well sealed so that  moisture cannot penetrate.  Look for a signal or warning  light to let you know if the electricity is off or if the temperature has gone up. Check the  location of the temperature control ��� some are easier to reach  and adjust than others.  Be sure that you get an adequate instruction manual. It  should include instructions ori  how to package foods and details  on how long different foods will  keep. You should maintain a  regular turnover in your inventory of food and that takes pfenning and work.  It is,wise to buy a well-known  make from a reliable dealer.  Check the guarantee carefully.  Some include servicing for the  first year as well as parts, while  some also have a warranty  against food spoilage due either  to mechanical breakdown or  power failure. For your own pro- -  tection, remember to have any  promises made by the salesman  written on the bill of sale.

ABERNETHY  - ,i _  886-7374 SPEC speaker at Selma Park  Coast News, March 17, 1971.     5  r At ;a public meeting in Selma  Park Community Hall last Thurs  day evening, Dr. Derrick Mallard, executive director of SPEC  Vancouver, .spoke to about 60  people on pollution and environmental hazards posed by man's  thoughtlessness and lack of consideration for the world he lives  in. .  At present there are Zy2 billion  people living on earth, but Mr.  Mallard made the point that by  the year 2000 this figure could  be doubled. If we think we have  problems now, we should be  looking ahead to those times  when, according to some envi-  ronimental and ecologically know  ledge-able people, we could be  faced with an environmental collapse; some predict as near as  20 to 50 years from now; This  sort of prediction should give  incentive to anyone interested in  the future of their own and other  children to try to re verse the  present trend. '^^  Industry, Mr. MaWard pointed  out, is not; the only one responsible for the mess we find ourselves in. It is one of man's inherent faults that he waits for a  disaster ���. to happen hefore doinig  anything 'about at. As an example, Mr. Mallard cited the smog  situation in London, England,  when thousands died in a mat  ter of. days, which led  to the  passing of the Clean Air Bill.  The warnings which are given  by people who study these things  are generally completely ignored1, and such people are considered to' be crackpots or nuts  who really make these statements just to scare people.  The oil and mining industries  were given as examples of the  lack of consideration which these  people give to others When it  comes to exploiting a resource  for their financial gain. Studies  are done and recommendations  made concerning land usage, etc  but most of the time these are  ignored when big business talks;  the officials who are supposed  to be looking after the people's  interests and have been elected  by the people to do this joto  might as well not exist. Much of  the responsibility, Mr. Mallard  suggested, must rest with our  elected representatives, and they  should insist that ecological studies must be done, and the recommendations' adhered to and  enforced before development of  a resource takes place.  Following Mr. Mallard's talk,  Mr. Labonte, Who chaired the  ���meeting: co-sponsored by the local SPEC group and Local 297  of Canadian Forest Products, introduced Mr. Ken Barker. Mr.  Barker told his audience that the  pulp mill recognized its respon-  THE DRIVER ESCAPED unhurt when this Palm Dairies truck  hit a patch oif black ice on the Port Mellon road and slid down  the bank and overturned.

Much needs  to be done and a letter containing 10 recommendations had  ���been sent to the company. In a  recent reply, it was stated that  seven of the 10 were being worked upon at the present time, but  Mr. Barker was unable to say  which these were because the  letter had .not yet been discussed  by the union executive. It was  hoped that a brighter picture  might emerge as a result of the  work done by the anti-rpollution  committee in conjunction with  management at the Port Mellon  mill.  There was a lengthy question  period, the questions ranging  from the proposed gravel operations in the area to noise pollution, the education of the young,  and freezing of fish at sea.  Thanks were extended to Mr.  Laibonte who chaired the meeting and to the Selma Park Community Association who made  ���their hall available to the meeting and supplied a coffee break.  Both SPEC and the union supplied quite am assortment of literature, and despite the number  of other activities .going on that  evening, including Barkerville  and a Regional Board meeting,  the turnout and interest shown  were encouraging.  letters to Editor  Editor: In the faint hope that  the person or persons concerned  are intelligent enough to be able  to read, I should like to point out  that the ravine at the foot of the  S hill on Gower Point Road has  not (to the best of my knowledge) been designated as an  auxiliary dump to the one we already have on the North Road.

It's still required fashion for  every cook ��� regardless of age,  sex or menu, which probably  explains why the apron remains  the most popuJIar item for bazaars or gift-giving. What's more  it's easy and fun to make.  If sewing time is limited', the  Canadian Cotton Council says to  try your hand at a quickie apron. The recipe calls for one  cotton terry hand towel, two  yards of gold metallic trim,  three yards of ribbon, and two  gold frog closures.  Choose a brightly colored towel for a special occasion apron  and make it festive with gold  trim. Start by folding a twio-inch  vertical pleat down each side of  the towel front. Stitch pleats  nine inches down from the towel1  top to form a bib-like apron top.  Tack an 18-inch strip ribbon at  the top corners of the bib for a  neck strap. Add ribbon waist ties  under frog closures at the end  of each pleat.  For a decorative look, stitch  ribbon over the towel bands at  the top and bottom of the apron.  Sew a strip of metallic trim  across the ribbon, and then add  single rows of trim above and  below the ribbon to complete the  apron.

It seems strange that our sewage disposal becomes a problem  in the winter when there are  only a hano_ful of boats here. In  the summer when people and  children are playing in the water, a thousand,boats a morith  pass through and no-hing is said.  If sewage is the problem it  seems logical to clean up the  jarger cesspools first, like municipal raw sewage which is discharged into local waters, or the  discharge from private dwellings  an the bay area. What about the  public facilities which exist _ on  the private floats in the bay?  Here people are persecuting a  handful, for a crime you are all  guilty of every day of your life;  obeying the call of nature!  We think the real problem is  false envy. It is sometimes  thought we don't pay taxes, we  don't spend enough money in the  village, and we don't contribute  to the economy.  We have news for you! Where  you the homeowner get a $125  grant on your property tax, we  the boat owners have to pay $100  to $150 and more a year in  wharfage which goes directly to  the municipality with no rebate.  We pay income tax on our earnings and shop in the village just  like you. We have all worked to  get our boats, no one gave them  to us. We take -pride in being  capable of' living on the water  in craift capable of being comfortable homes.  Could we please have a clarification from council as to the  health problem we cause? We  are at feast as concerned as  council about pollution of the water we live in!  ���W. MAXTED  H. AUNE  B. KRISTOFFERSON  J.  SHEWAN.  Editor:" I wish to elaborate on  a point of discussion that has  been raised by Mr. Bert Slade,  director for Area C of the Sunshine Coast Regional District.  This is the matter of the (dreadful discrepancy between thfe potential water users and the actual users of the Regional District's waterworks, and the .present awful results to the taxpayers.  The fact is, the whole basis of  the original estimated' cost of  water per user was. based on  potential and not much effort  was made to certify how many  people out of this potential would  be actual users.  In due course, When this potential is reached, I feel the rate  structure will, or could, be adjusted to something near the  original, optimistic price. How  long this will take is anyone's  guess but the most optimistic  estimates run into several years.  The wishlful thinking and over-  optimism plus the adverse effects of the village of Gibsons'  actions plus the highly inflated  value placed on the Sechelt Water Worksi by the courts have  combined to place this whole water user area in a very invidious  position.  Hindsight being what it is I  offer the <foTlowing thought for  what it may be worth. It is a  pity thajt the recommendations  of the Water Rights branch and  more specifically, the recommendations of Mr. Bullock of  that branch were so totally ignored. Possibly if his recommendations had not been free  they may have been held in  higher esteem.  In future one does hope that  the members oif the board will  have learned some sobering lessons from this situation that will  apply when the next expansion  of the system is contemplated.  To rub satfit into the wounds I  have ascertained that not only  is the consumer rate on the high  side but the meter rate structure  is in the order of 25% higher  than any of the eight rate structures I have been supplied with  by the water rates branch that  are in south west B.C. Of course  water rights branch authorized  systems   place   maximums   on  rate structures and do not accept costs based on potential.  ���Yours sorrowfully,  NORMAN WATSON  Editor:   Re  your editorial of  March 10.  While you most likely are right  on the points you draw attention  to, there certainly are" two sides  of the story. From reports and  articles j hiave read in the Coast  News over the past few months  I gather that the Regional  board's water system will have  a revenue of around 8125,000 and  an expenditure of over $170,000.  Now, even if the Gibsons council  did turn their water system over  to the Regional board' free of  charge arid the Regional Board  did double the cost of water to  the residents of Gibsons the new  revenue would hardly be sufficient to cover the losses oif the  Regional Board's water system.  It would of course reduce the  Regional. Board's reserve fund  of over $40,000 that I understand  is to be collected by.tax over the  whole of. the Regional District  and used, I gather, to cover the  losses of the water system.  ���L. A. FRASER.  Editor: In any community  where citizens do the extras for  the well being of their fellow citizens, there is an opportunity  for commendation.  Here on the Sunshine Coast,  we have that privilege because  we have so many citizens who  have supported the Golf and  Country club financially though  they themselves get nothing  from their generous action unless it be that the value of their  property is enhanced.  In the first instance, a number of residents bought debentures to make a golf course a  possibility. Then, many of these  pay the full family membership  playing fee though they seldom  if ever exercise their right to  play anytime. This fee is approximately $100 per year.  ^ere are social members who  pay $40 annual family membership and who never enter the  door of the beautiful clubhouse,  though much larger numbers  are now using the coffee bar and  the cocktail lounge plus entertaining their friends.  In every community, there are  those who are never willing to  give any financial support to  anything unless they benefit directly, even though they have  the money to do so. It is very  refreshing to find so many people whose outlook and practice  is one of generosity.  I. came across this situation  when I was reading some of the  reports of the Sunshine Coast  Goif and Country club. It gives  one a great respect for the citizenry on the Sunshine Coast who  are financially able to enhance  their community without asking  for any return.  ���CANON MINTO SWAN,  Sechelt.

Now in its tenith year, and hosted by Jim  Ohorley and Bruce Rogers (shown above) Sunday Magazine is an  Point of law  (By  a   Practicing Lawyer)  Q. I have a trial coming up  and I want my lawyer to be a  witness but he won't and says  he can't. Why is this?  A. This is forbidden ��� except for testifying to some formal matter such as the signing  of a document. It is part of a  lawyer's duty in a trial to comment on the testimony of the  witnesses and he could hardly  urge the judge to accept his own  testimony. If necessary, another  lawyer will have to be engaged  for the trial.  Q. If a lawyer says he is going to do something ��� like delivering a document or registering a deed and he doesn't, can  he be forced to?  7, A- He can-be-reported to the  discipline committee of the law  society and he may be disbarred  or be subject to some lesser  punishment.  Schools use  loaned cars  General Motors of Canada  dealers loaned 650 cars and light  duty trucks to high schools  throughout Canada for use in  driver education courses during  the 1969-70 school year, Roland  S. Withers, G.M. president announces.  General Motors' involvement  in this type of driver education  program dates back to 1936,  wihen a few dealers began loaning cars to local schools. A corporation-wide dealer allowance  program, whereby participating  dealers are paid a special allowance for each vehicle loaned to  high schools began in 1955. The  cost of the overall program totalled $13.4 million during 1970.  R. C. DUCKWORTH  Chartered Accountant  Ph. 886-2912. Gibsons  Ph. 885-9515- Sechelt  (Copyright)  Q. A lawyer was handling a  real estate deal. I was the seller  and he promised to get a cheque  from the buyer and register the  deed in the Land Registry office and pay me immediately. He  got -a cheque from the buyers  and registered the deed O.K.,  but he wouldn't pay me the next  day. Can the discipline committee get after him?  A. The discipline committee  could get after him if he did do  anything thus foolish. We presume the cheque was uneerti?  fied. Therefore, he can't pay out  of his trust account till it clears  through the banks. If he paid  out before it cleared and it was  subsequently dishonored, he  ,wquld_be-short in. his trust ac^  count.  Q. I want to sue a lawyer  but I can't seem to find any  lawyer interested in taking the  case.  A. It is a lawyer's duty to  accept such a case just like any  other case. As against this there  is a contrary rule that a lawyer  is not bound to accept every and  any case presented to him. Go  to your local law society. They  will appoint a lawyer to take the  suit.  Q. I had a jury trial and I  hired a very influential lawyer.  I thought he would tell the jury  that his opinion was that I was  innocent but he didn't. Now I aiti  in jail and I'm wondering why  he didn't do this.  A. This .is forbidden. Your  lawyer's opinion has no bearing  on the case. It is the facts as  sworn to by witnesses that count  Q. I was charged with a crim  inal offence and I thought my  lawyer would tell me what to  say but he didn't.  A. This would be very similar to counselling perjury. A  lawyer is forbidden to advise  anyone to break the law.  Q. Does a prosecutor have  ethical duties like a lawyer?  \ A. A prosecutor usually is a  lawyer. He is bound by the same  rules of ethics. In addition, in  criminal cases, it is the prosecutor's duty to introduce to the  judge (or judge and jury if there  is a jury) al! evidence in the  case whether in favor or against  the accused.

Need exit lights  With President Stan Rowland  in the cbadr, the Thursday meeting of the Roberts Creek Community Association discussed the  recent hall inspection of the fire  marshal! in which he made several suggestions $or necessary  changes. Most pressing of these  was insta-lation of exit lights at  all doors. Wheels were set in  motrion to have the matter attended to.  It has been suggested that an  addition be made to the Post  Office-Library bud-ding. Mr. Ron  McSavaney agreed to make contacts dnd investigate the project  further. There will be election  of officers at the March meeting.  Barkerville riotous show  Barkerville '71 is described in  the   official  program, to   be   a  rousing evening of nostalgic fun  from a  golden  age of -comedy  i   and music. tv -  That is one description of it  and a pretty good one at that.  However Barkerville '71 put up  its stage props in ElpfrKiristone  school and on a stage which the  master of ceremonies said just  suited their scenery, really had  a ball and in so doing gave the  audience of more than 500 persons a night they wall' remember.  Fran Dowie's nonchalant disrespect of everything and everybody was refreshing and his vocal observations of the goings-  on were riotous, so much so that  he jolted everyone out of their  ma  mmmmmm  W��  Mackenzie N.D.P.

The second part of the show,  an oldtime minstrel display  brought the audience back to  normalcy and gave the cast a  chance to deliver the Centennial  message in a grandiose conclusion.  The cast including Fran Kowie  Sid Wiiffia-mis, Louise Glennie,  Tank Robin-son, Judy A*r_nisitrong,  Susan Roberts, Jimmy Johnston,  Norman.

Tank  Robinson in his dancing lesson  revealed his choreographic ability.  One can imagine that with a  good stage setting and with little to trouble them, the cast  had a chance to let. themselves  go and go they did because the  audience was ripe for their kind  of show, for which thanks go to  the Gibsons Kiwanis club, sponsors of the event, on behalf of  its senior citizens housing project.
