In his monthly, report to the  board Seci^etaiy-treasuirer Charles1 Gooding said it should* be  noted that there is a very small  increase in administration costs  in the budget for this year.  "In this connection," he added, "I would advise the board  that this holding of the line can  only be accomplished by some  reduction in the quality of service both to them* and the pub-  Mfc. The number of board meetings and comimittee meetings  has increased considerably.  There were three this week and  the number of senior staff members has increased and the volume of public business and intergovernmental business has in-  creaised.  "Resulting from these increases is*' the inevitable great- inclose in paperwork: We still  :oniy! rhave one stenographfer-  cashier-filing clerk to handle all  this jwork plus telepihone -ienquir-  ies aiid attend the front desk.  Thus; i��is- necessary to allocate  priorities to work and there will  -be delays in the production of  minutes; reports, and in answering government and public enquiries. When* the planner is in  full operation, I can forsee that .  we will Ibe unable to cope with  the additional load on the clerical staff."  DEATHS  Stan Rowland, Roberts Creek  fire chief reported to the Regional District board that he  was fed up to the teeth with the  stupidity of some people and  announced his retirement. He  said people could hot agree on  either ttetruc^ or the firehall  so|he was 4sliBppihg down because of dissension.

It started at 8 a_m.  and continued through to 9 p.m. Above are a couple of moments,  caught during the afternoon. Top, Students played the ROMP in  an exciting game of broomball. Bottom, floor hockey was the  game the Students and Firemen chose. As well as. the sports there  were various displays throughout the school, a bake sale and refreshment stand.  U.S. buyers use Canadian  cash to buy Canadian industries  United States buyers of Canadian plants were obtaining  money fpr such purchases from  Canadian banks instead of their  own banks in the United States,  Paul St. Pierre, MP (Liberal)  informed an audience of 75 persons Monday night in Selma  Park Community Hall.  The meeting, called by the  Sunshine Coast Liberal association heard Mr. St. Pierre also  say that he ejipected unemployment on the present scale will  be with us for some time, years  possibly.  Among those present were  Mayor Wally Peterson and Aid.  Ken Goddard of Gibsons arid  Aid. Joe Benner of Sechelt. Norman Watson was chairman. Arrangements had been made to  elect officers but owiiig to the  appearance of Mr. St. Pierre  the election was held over to  the next meetihg.  Mr. St.. Pierre urged his listeners to watch future moves  arising fromA the newly passed  Textiles and Clothing' act which  he strived to amend by tightening it up a bit. The measure  passed with a small.25 vote margin and it was meant to rationalize the industry but he suspects that in time it would work  the other way.  On the subject of oil in northern UjSI territory foe* maintained the promoters intend to get  that oil out somehow so it can  be marketed as the U.S. is oil  hungry.   He  discussed  various  ���ST.

He maintained the hot oil temperature  would create less havoc to the  land if the Mackenzie route was  used rather than bringing it  throuigh solid arctic regions. The  Mackenzie route would take it  direct to the Chicago market.  . Unemployment, he maintained,  is not going to be solved and  will be with us for many years.  However he found that employment in Canada was increasing  (Continued on Page 8)  Another letter  Registering dissatisf action  with the reply from Gibsons  council to Henry Road residents  the Regional Board at its meeting Thursdlay of last week rejected the reply arid decided to  provide an answer which would  make more sense.  The decision was made when  the letter from council came up.  It was pointed out that the letter instead of being sent to the  board v^ for it,  had been distributed among the  residents of Henry Road' who  had asked the board to seek an  explanation from Gibsons council. ,  Director Frank West who described;hiimse_f as the Area E director wiho would become redundant if further Gibsons' resrpan- "  saon took. plaice maintained the  letter should have come to the  sons  A $600 subsidy to maintain an  ambulance service for Gibsons  this year was approved by Gibsons council at Tuesday night's  meeting. This subsidy will be  for ambulance maintenance only  arid users of the ambulance will  still pay for trips to hospital.  Keith Baker, operator of Gibsons Radio Cabs Ltd. which  keeps an ambulance for public  use informed council that his  1970 experience resulted in 70  trips, 35 for Gibsonites and 35  for people outside the village.  It was suggested that Mr. Baker should contact the Regional  District board to see what could  be arranged1 to cover ambulance  service outside the village*.''  Fire Chief Dick Ranniger informed council that the fire department rescue truck should remain inside village boundaries  and avoid calls to outside areas.  Correspondence revealed the  Manitoba town of Grandview has  been twinned with Gibsons for  Centennial purposes. The letter  Was passed to the Centennial  committee for action.  The Scenic Highway act has  been gazetted, a Municipal Affairs department letter reveals,  thus giving council power to  control- what can be achieved  on keeping highways up to certain scenic standards.  Council decided it was not its  job to clean out blackberry vines  on vacant lots. If it did it on one  lot, it would be a precedent and  would lead to many other lots.  A Seaview Road lot was under  discussion.  Fred Crowhurst, Marine Drive  was granted a business license  to allow him to handle appliance repairs. Mrs. Louise* Bis-  sillon sought a business license  for a book, stationery and gift  shop in Seaview Plaza, Gower  Point Road. She will be informed that owing to requirements  needed before such premises  were occupied council cannot  grant the license at present. Mr.  A. Weinhandl, Wyngaert Road,  was granted a business license  to operate an< upholstery and  boat top repairs.  E.. R.. Jecks proposed to council that the worn-out Chekwelp  water line be replaced with a  larger size pipe. Council agreed  and will turn oiff village water  at the Chekwelp source when  needed.  New water rates all  published on Feb. 10  methods of transportation  and   board and not to individuals.  Complaints maintaining that  the Regional District board had  not published in advance the  new;fewajt^^  'd^^^^^y^^e'-.^omd^MT^-  meeting Thursday of last week:  Argument revealed that the  rates had been published. (They  were printed in the Coast News  issue of Feb. 10 on page two  under the heading Sunshine  Coast Regional District Bylaw  No. 50 and included the water  rates and the assessment on  land.)  Mr. A. Wagemakers appearing  before the board last Thursday  maintained he had not received  a bill for 1970 and* objected to  the $40 land charge for 1971. He  afeo complained he had not received prior advance notice of  the increase.  The board informed Mr. Wage-  makers he could see the ledger  for the 1970 billing and said the  bylaw was advertised but the  infommation did not apparently  reach the ipeople concerned.  It is interesting to note that  in some areas where owners are  dependent on wells and streams  for their supply that they request almost immediate service  from the Regional board system when they find their source  has been contaminated or destroyed by development, Secretary Charles Gooding informed  the'���":: Regional District board  meeting oh Thursday night of  last week.  He was dealing with water  problems and added that there  was considerable correspondence and telephone calls from  non-resident, owners of property on the new rates. Most owners when informed of the situation accept the new rates when  told they were being levied on  all who benefit.  Players' trip  Driftwood Players are travelling to Powell River on April 2  and 3. On invitation from the  Powell River Players Gibsons  players will present the play  What Shall We Tell Caroline by  John Mortimer.  The cast will include last  year's provincial festival winner  Colleen Johnson and John Burnside as well as Mary Livingston and Alan Crane.  This play along with The  ApoiTo Of Bellac will be produced locally on April 23 and 24.  The water committee reported  the district contained 1,981 par:  eels of land, improved and un-  iitnipi^ved���EWMi; there' w��re -868  ^uSe^"*ci)rm^  It was7poirited:dut" the s^st-ori-is  governed by me number of properties the system may have to  service. The committee added  that total income for water will  reach $121,600, on! the present  rate structure, which was close  to requirementsriR was expected  that deficits would be covered  by growth within the serviced  area.  Before the next meeting of the  board the water committee expected that the board would  have a press release ready for'  public consumption. This press  release would outline the situation in which the board' finds  itself.  Water superintendent G. Dixon  reported three new connections  during the month with four new  water users on. the system. A  Gower Point line had been dug  up by a back hoe but it is now  back in service. Selma Park's  wood stave lines have been replaced by 1,650 feet of ductile  piipe. Piping and electrical work  were completed on the Browning  road pumphouse and the pump  is now ready for testing. A pressure relief yalve was installed  at Henderson and Beach Avenue to prevent pressures from  becoming excessive when the  pump is turned on.  Extension of water services to  a Langdale subdivision presented by the water committee revealed that the committee expressed the opinion that all future extensions and works should  be self-liquidating and that the  return from the extension or development should exceed the  cost of providing the capital outlay.  The committee recommended  (hat work proceed on this development which would cost in the  region of $43,000.  ymmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmimm  FOUND DROWNED  Ivor Jerry Jensen, 28, of'Vancouver was found drowned dose  by Roberts Creek wharf .Thursday.

In legislating for a ban on advertising cigarets and liquor is it  Premier Bennett's way of chastising; the communications media  generally because they are not toeing the Solcial* Credit line? It  smacks of his treatment of school board's, municipalities, hospitals  and others on whom he has put a financial! squeeze and told them  to behave ��� or else!  However the premier will find the media to be 'mores difficult  to control than the institutions that seek their bread and butter  from their Premier Ho, Ho, Ho! Santa Claus Bennett. Unless he  can get all other provinces to line up with him and can get U.S.  TV stations to black out their beer and liquor advertisements he  will be revealing a" very senseless bias. One can sympathize with  his objective but not in the manner in which he is striving to  achieve it.  Not too convincing  Mayor Wally Peterson's reply to Henry Road residents' desire  for information concerning his thoughts on expansion in order to  protect the village water system, was one way of doing the job,  but was it the right one?  If the situation had been reversed and the Regional board had  zone around him in the same manner he would most likely have  lodged a strong protest involving customary relations between!  governmental bodies.  However his method apparently pleased him and gave him the  opportunity of inviting the protestors* to appear befiore council.  Five persons showed up and if they were convinced by anything,  it was not obvious. Now the Regional District board has decilded  to see what it can do about providing some of the informaUiCji  required by the Henry Road residents.  Public apathy rewarded  As far as can be ascertained, the following amendments to the  Public Schools Act as quoted in the recent News Letter of the JJn-  ion of B.C. Municipalities have been passed by the legislature and  in the main are a response to general' public apathy to financial  matters that concern them.  The right of a board to seek approval of a council for expenditures over 110% of their basic education program has been deleted from the act. ���'  In voting on money bylaws for school purposes, if the turnout  of qualified voters is mors than 60%, then only a simple majority  of the votes cast is needed for approval.  Membership in the B.C. Teachers' Federation is no longer a  condition of employment for teachers.  A board is now authorized to borrow, without a vote of the  electors, money to acquire and equip buildings for colleges up to a  maximum of $1500 per student for a three-year term.  A SIGN OF THE TIMES  "Seven hundred thousand people out of work," moans one local citizen, "and I cannot get anyone to cut my lawn!"

In third place is copper, followed by medium blue as a  fourth choice and medium gold  in fifth position. Copper captured 10 percent of the total with  medium blue and gold rating  nine and six percent.  At the bottom of the preference chart is black accounting  for only two percent of the total  exterior colors ordered.  (By JULES A. MAINIL)  Papa eventually realized that  he could no longer listen td  Mamma's ^'Arthur, we simply  must have a new house," or  Marraine's "A new house would  certainly be nice." He too had  been thinking of a new house ���  the now sizable farm was doing  well, crops had been good, and  this being 1915, war prices for  wheat were high.  Oh yes, he had been thinking  about a new house, room for the  women, room for the hired men,  but especially room for the two  growing sons. He even had ideas  ���dreams really, about what he  wanted.  It would be a big squarish two  storey farmhouse, lots of room,  centrail  heating  and a cistern.  He could visualize- the exterior  easily enough but the interior re-'  mained   vague  and- subject. to  change.  Of   one  thing he   was  sure, there would be a cistern  so that never again would the  farm work have to be interrupted to bring in a couple of barrels of soft water to do the family wash. A good (big farmhouse,  safe from the summer's violent  storms and the winter's howling  blizzards. Yes,  he had a good  idea   of   what  he   wanted  and  , what Mama wanted from listening to her almost continual demands for a new house.  *       *       #  The house we were living in  had to be seen to be believed.  The centre of the house was the  original 14' by 16' frame building that Papa had had built  when he first took up his homestead and bought the adjoining  half section. He had three quarters of good land, most of it raw  prairie, a roof over his head  and a soddy barn to shelter his  few horses and newly acquired  cows. No, he had more than  that, he had strength, courage,  youth and boundless love and  enthusiasm for his new homeland. In his mind's'eye he didn't  see what he had, he saw what  he would have. On the strength  of that vision he sent for his  bride-to-be.  Poor, gentle timid Mama, the  picture she saw did not resemble  the 'one described in Papa's  somewhat grandiloquent letters.  A small frame shack and endless miles of wild land running  in every direction with the clos- _  est neighbor three or four miles  away. But she was here and here  she would stay, moreover she  loved her wild young husband  with an undeviating love.  Family legend has it that her  first remark on coming to her  new home after being married  was "Arthur, we must have a  kitchen," and so the first lean-  to was built. The next year,  Papa's mother came from Belgium to see the mad young couple and her new grandson, Jules.  Mama said; "We must have a  bedroom," so another extension  was built, a dividing drape was  hung and it became two bedrooms.  Extensions to bedrooms, extensions to kitchens and extensions to porches, the thing grew  like Topsy. The larger it got the  more inconvenient it became.  There were three stoves spread  throughout the building, each of  which would have horrified la  fire inspector. "Arthur, we must  have a new house." i  *  *  Papa was a good businessman,  a fair farmer, a poor mechanic  and a deplorable carpenter.  Now fate intervened to help  solve his problem. This year,  1915, a new one-room school*  house was being built on an acre  of land he had given the School  District for that purpose. Being  chairman of the newly formed  School Board, he had a good  deal to do with the American  carpenter who had the contract  to build the school. Jim Fencil  was his name.  TMis big rawboned yankee  built the stc-iool without help of  any kind. From the foundation  to the painting and vanrishintg  he did it all himself. In the process he gained Papa's admiration, respect and trust. After  the school was finished Papa  asked' him if he would build us  a pumpshed cum workshop before returrung to the States for  the winter. He agreed and so  was built the first decent structure on our farm.  One day while we were having  supper in the crowded kitehen-  dining room, Manna, at her wit's  end once again said,   "Arthur,  we must do something about a  house." Papa looked at Jim and  said, "Will you come back next.  spring and'build us a house?"  Jim thought a minute and said,  "Yes,  if you're sure you want  me to. You can give me a general idea of. what you want for  a house before I leave and this  winter I will draw Up the plans  and specifications."  Papa said,   "I'll tell you right  now what I want. A sturdy two  storey house about 30 by 34, full  basement   divided   into  reasonable   size   .���ooms,   one ' of   the  rooms to be a large soft water  cistern  and another a  furnace  room   fioir   the   central   heating  plant. We will need a large kitchen,   a   large, dining   room,  a  parlor,   five   bedrooms,   and  a  full size attic. All the materials  to be first grade. The details of  verandahs,  of  finishing  and of  ���cupboards and pantries will be  left to my wife and to Marraine.  You'll  have your  troubles*.   Oh  yes, it's not to cost more than  five thousand dolters." Jim-sim-  ply said, "OK, you're the boss."  A   binding   contract  had   be^n  drawn up.  *  *  *  Jim came back from the  States in early spring. A spot  was found for his cot in the boys  room and he settled in with his  plans and estimates. Papa looked at the plans, realized that  Jim had sensed what he wanted  and declared himself satisfied.  Mama and Marraine were sO  happy at the thought of a new  house that any criticism on their  part was impossible. So the process of building the new house  started.  Jim and Papa went to the lo-,  calf lumberyard and ordered two  carloads of No. 1 B.C. lumber,  a mountain of cement and the  endless number of fittings for a  fifteen room house. From the  hardware store was ordered the  hot water furnace, the radiators,  pipes, valves, galvanized fittings  pipes, valves, galvanized gutters and a multitude of Other  essentials. Yes, the project was  well and irrevocably on its way  but there was stall two feet oif  snow on the ground.  Jini would pace the snow covered yard and come back to the  house with a baffled look on Ms  face. The question that he had  asked half a dozen times would  come up once again. "Where are  we going to put the house?" Papa just could not visualize the  importance of the precise location of the house. In an offhanded way he would answer, "Anywhere there in the yard." Jim  finally lost his temper. "Damn  it, Boss, you are already talking  about building a big new barn  next year, the only decent building you have on the place is the  pumpshed and you want me to  drop this fine new house anywhere in the yard. If you build  your big barn where will you  put it?" Papa looked at Jim  with some surprise. "You know  there is only one place for the  (barn, on the little rise just  across from the old barn." Jim  said, "You are sure that's where  you want our barn." "Yes,"  said Papa.  *  *  Maima, 'listening to the conversation, could sense Jim's exasperation and mildly suggested,  "Arthur, why don't you ask Jim  to draw a plan of the yard as he  thinks it should ibe with your  barn placed where you want it."  "Yes, Jim," said Papa, "that's  what I've been saying right  along." He had been saying no  such thing of course, but Mama  and Jim had settled the planning  of our yard.  Jim walked out, got four willow pickets from the pile and deliberately went to a spot about  three hundred feet from the old  house, paced off the approximate size of the new house and  stuck a picket in the snow at  each corner of the rectangle.  The new house had found its  home.  The snow was going and soon  the house would be a-bui_d_ng  but more important to the Boss,  the field work would be starting.  "Jim," he said, "you are building this house, you will order  and buy whatever you need, you  will hire any carpenter or laborer you need, you will decide on  the wages and on the conditions  and quality of work. The farm  will haul your materials and dig  the basement  and render  any  help you may ask for asTloriig as  it doesn't interfere with the work  of  the farm.   Now  about your  wages,   what   do   you  want an  hour?"  Jim thought a* few. minutes and  said, "The School District paid  me 60 cents an hour last" year to  build the school, this is much "the  same kind of job."  "No," said the Boss, "this is  a much bigger job, with the hiring and firing to do and in any  case wages are going up; 80  cents an hour from the time we  start building until my wife and  I and you agree the house is finished." Jim looked at Papa and  Mama and said, "That's a very  good wage, I will build you a  good bouse."  ^ * jj:  The snow was gone, the two  car loads' of lumber had arrived  and been spotted at the siding  Early one morning the wagons  some three miles from our farm,  from the farm and those of two  or three neighbors started hauling this beautiful perfect No. 1  B.C. lumber, nor a knot nor a  split in a wagon load. Load after load of dimension, shiplap  siding, shingles and mountains  of finishing wood. The Boss became more and more perturbed.  "Jim, you must have made a  mistake, you can't possible use  all this stuff." "No," said Jim,  "we widl use it, all except a few  thousand feet of dimension and  shiplap which you can use: on  the barn next year." Papa walked away shaking his head, he  knew that part of the deal was  to keep quiet and leave the man  who knew his job to do it.

Jim was getting as much work  _aS he could from the farm hands  including the Boss, before the  spring field work started. Once  that started Papa's interest in  the house would drop very quickly. Jim was waiting fox the frost  to come out of the ground so he  could dig the basement and haul  Ihe gravel from the local pit;  Papa was waiting for the same  thing to get his harrows, plows  and seeders on the fie_ds.  Papa won, the fields dried and  one day at breakfast he said to  the three hired men, .''Alright  boys, this afternoon we start  harrowing on the upper half and  tomorrow we will start seeding  wheat."  As at all such times, you could  fairly feel the energy boil out  of him. Jim looked at Mama and  she looked back with some concern, they knew they were in  for difficult . times. The Boss  would simply refuse to stop the  field work to haul the gravel1 and  dig the basement.  Jim and his assistant carpen-"  ter, Paul Roy, and one laborer  were busy enough. They were  making what seemed to us boys  a mountain of door and window  frames of all kinds, they were  even making the doors and door  frames for the interconnecting  basement rooms. Endless studs,  joists, braces and rafters were  being cut. Regardless of all this, ���  Jim arid Paul were getting itchy,  they wanted to get at the house,  (Continued next week)  1  N.

We put this question to Professor W. H. Poole from the  School of Business, Queen's  University. Professor Poole  knows the business world from  both the academic and practical side. His objective comments are worth reading.  PROF. POOLE: The editors of  the Harvard Business Review  asked the same question. They  found that 85% of businessmen  did not think that eliminating advertising would change the cost  Of products.  Here's the crux of theproblem:  advertising is one factor���-and  frequently a rather small factor���  that determines how a product is  told. It's a selling tool. Like sales-  mat, store displays, packages, the  typo of store it's sold in, and so  forth.  If you eliminated advertising���  the other selling factors would  play a larger role. Isn't it logroll  that a manufacturer would havo  to add more salesmen or bn_fd  bigger store displays or find soma  other ways to compete? Probab$f  the new methods wouldn't be at  effective and they could be morm  costly. Advertising is really a very  inexpensive way to sell product*  NOTE: You, the consumer,*  do something about "bad" ad*  vertising.  Write for your copy of the in*  dustry's Code of Ethics.

If you see an advertise*  ment that you think breaks car  seriously bends the rules, fill in  and mail the complaint notice en*  closed with the Code booklet.  Canadian Advertising Advisory Board: we work for better advertisings CAPP  A  PAUL  ST.PIERRE, MP  OTTAWA   ���   The   Saints   who  have Never Been Caught:  Recently, House of commons  debated an amendment to the  Criminal Code during private  members' hour. In this, as in all  debates, Mr. Speaker offers no  opinions on the subject.  However on this day, the acting speaker was Jean-Thomas  Richard, a veteran MP first elected to the house of commons  in 1945. Mr. Richard likes to offer an occasional comment upon  the affairs of man. He did so at  the conclusion of the debate.  He followed tradition by refraining from commenting on  the substance of the debate, but  COAST-CHILCOT1N  as a general comment upon  crime and punishment, his were  good words. As recorded in Hansard of March 23, page 4537,  they read:  When  some felPow yields to  temptation  And breaks a conventional law,  We look for no good in his make  up.  But Lord, how we look for the  flaw.  No one asks, "Who did the  tempting?"  Nor allows for the battles he's  fought.  His name becomes food for the  jackals,  The saints who have never been  caught.  I'm a sinner, O Lord, and I  know it.  I am weak, and I blunder and  tacking section�� of the government's Textile and Clothing Bill.  "'This came to the test Monday.  March 22, when I moved to amend the bill at what is called the  report stage. Six other Liberal  MPs rose, as the rules say, "uncovered, in their place," to force  However, when the moment to  record the -vote arrived, March  23, at about 3 p.m., some of the  six decided that they didn't fa-  . vcr my amendinent. And others,  not all of whom I had ever  spoken with on the subject (as I  was to discover) decided that  they would.  Apart from a maiden speech,  it is perhaps an MP's loneliest  _ moment when he rises to vote  for such a motion, not certain  that a single man among his  colleagues will rise with him.  The Liberals voting for this  one rose simultaneously, Tom  Goode of Richmond, Bud Orange  oif the Northwest Territories,  Doug Hogarth of New Westminister and John Reid from Kenora  Rainy-River in Northern Ontario  The rest who voted were in the  opposition parties1, for whom voting against the government is in  the good tradition of the adversary system of government  Taking the long view, which  is not a bad way of coping with  toothaches, bankruptcies*, pregnancies and other inconveniences, it seems to me that neither  '"Dave's actions nor mine were  hinges on which the history of  Canada swings.

Many young children today  look forward to coloring eggs,  decorating them and filling baskets. The eggs are often ha.*d-  cooked before coloring, and if  they are returned to the refrigerator when not on display at  mealtime they may be used for  eating within a day or so. A fairly concentrated solution of food  coloring and water will color  the shells and a .little vinegar  speeds up the absorption of the  color. To further decorate the  eggs, faces or designs may be  made with crayons, gummed  seals or beads, ribbon etc.,  SECHELT JEWELLERS  GUARANTEED  WATCH & JEWELRY  REPAIRS  885-2421  NEVENS RADIO & TV  DEALER   FOR  PHILIPS  ZENITH  FLEETWOOD  ADMIRAL  RUGS & FURNITURE  SALES & SERVICE  To all Makes  Phone 886-2280  for Real Estate on the  K.

LETTERS FROM HOME:  Dear Sir: Please excuse my  use_ of a Xerox form letter but  I have decided to send a letter  to every M.P. from Brit'sh Columbia.  According to a front page  story on the final edition* of the  Vancouver Sun of March 18, no  M.P.s from British Columbia  supported David Anderson in his  attempt to have parliament authorize funds for the Environmental Pollution committee to  hold public hearings in Vancouver and Victoria on the issue of  oil tankers1travelling off the  coast of this province. If true,  this is really shocking.  I would appreciate learning  from you whether you feel there  was some justification for this  episode. Yours truly, Mr. 2C.  Dear Mr. X. I have your form  letter of March 19. Whether or  not  public  hearings   in   British  Columbia would have helped the  cause at this time I don't know.  Neither do I know whether or  not witnesses could more expeditiously have been brought to  Ottawa from the Coast. This is  a matter for the committee concerned to ifirst decide. The views  of the government house leader  and opposition party house leaders are also a matter of consideration.   These   considerations  include whether one or another  committee is most appropriately seized of a study, and whether the pressure of committee  work in Ottawa permits the absence of the MPs  forming  its  membership at a particular time  In the case Of Dave's move,  he received support only from  the seconder of his motion, co-  chairman Phil Givens. No other  members of his committee felt  obliged to call for a vote. The  opposition   house   leader   asked  that the motion be set aside for  further study. The chairman of  the Energy, Mines and Resources   comimiittee   expressed   some  reservation about the trip. The  New   Democratic   Party   house  leader offered no comment and  no MPs of the opposition offered  support.  Under the circumstances I  think this is a matter deserving  thought rather than instant judgments.  As to the InterparlSaimentary  group which is to visit Washington, it seems to me that Dave  is a logical selection tor membership. But then, I felt the  same way about myself when I  was not invited to join such a  trip to discus's Arctic pollution  legislation, despite the fact that  I had ifdrst raised the issue in  this parliament and had pursued  it publicly through its course.  Matters are not always arranged to suit individual preferences  and opinions here. Yours truly,  Paul St. Pierre, M.P., Coast-  Chiicotin.  THE LONELY MOMENT ���  A day later I found myself in a  similar situation. A sobering experience.  Beginning   with   a   conumons  speech January 25 and following  through numerous Standing Com  mittee hearings, I had been at-  a recorded vote.  R. C.

Minute Message  The Road to Jerusalem (Mark  10:32-43).  Have you ever thought what  Jesus' choice and commitment  of himselif to follow the road of  sacrifice to Jerusalem could  mean to you? What ever your  answer may be to the question  asked, there is today a common  thought held by those who follow Christ and those who do not.  That is the crucial significance  of the hours and days in which  we are how living.  Art there any ultimate purposes in this modern world? Is  the society of men going to  crumble under the pressures exerted on it? In an age where  problems are many and varied,  m,%^^^ft$d in. the basic  argas of daily living to come up  with solutions despite the flood  of new {theories,  and extensive  prtjifemlrr" -.y.  I believe that if the opening  question were squarely faced by  ���us all, new light from God would  enable us to see ourselves in the  world. If we recognized that we  are estranged from God, and  that often we are the immediate  problem and not something or  someone else, how greatly God  could direct our ways.  Jesus followed a road which  involved the coatniplete giving of  himself in the end. The cross  upon which he died was the end  and yet it was only the beginning' as this passage teaches.  Jesus is the Way. The world and  those in it follow. many ways.  Why not come to Jesus who As  able to save us and through us  re-mold the world and its people  around us? ��� Robert Allaby,  Fashion show  greeted with  full house  A full house greeted Port Mellon's Hospital Auxiliary Centennial 71 Fashion Show in the  Community hall, Monday niight.

Many comparisons could be  made with other provinces concerning teacher pension formulas' and generally speaking, it  will be found that the so-called  superior plans of other provinces  do not provide benefits on a  scale comparable to this province. These comparisons are  set out in an address delivered  last week by the Hon. Wesley  D. Black, provincial secretary,  in the Legislative Assembly.  The British Columbia government  employs   the  services  of  one of the foremost actuaries on  the   continent,   Mr.   S.   Eckler,  F.S.A., F.C., I.A., to ensure that  the pension objectives are met.  Mr. Eckler states unequivoc-  afoly that any increase in benefits will require greater employer contributions, involving more  taxes from taxpayers and he emphasizes that  pensions do  cost  money, improvements cost even  more and the cost to the taxpayer is  an inherent factor in  any pension improvement plan.  Provision- has  been made  to  establish three accounts in the  fund instead of the two formerly  maintained.   It   is   hoped   that  these changes will more clearly  record the various transactions  that take place within the fund  and may avoid some misunderstanding  of   the  application   of  the revenues of the fund.  The Pensions Account will contain all of the accumulated contributions of teachers who have  retired. It will also contain the  amounts' provided out of government contributions to ensure  that payments will continue in  accordance with the terms of the  plan and in the amount originally established, as well as increases granted1 since retirement. The account will receive  interest credits at the net rate  earned by the fund on the same  basis as all other accounts. All  pension disbursements will be  made out of this account.  The Employee Contribution  Account will contain all contributions in the fund which have  been made and accumulated  with interest on Ijehalf of active  teachers and others who have  not retired. This account will  also receive interest credits at  the net rate earned by the fund  each year. Both contributions  and interest will be transferred  to the pensions account when a  pension is granted. Refunds to  resigning teachers will be paid  directly out of this account.  The Employer Reserve Account will contain all government contributions on behalf of  active teachers and will receive  interest credits at the net rate  earned by the fund each year.  When a pension is granted to, or  on behalf of a teacher, the balance of the cost oif the pension  will be paid out of this account  to the pensions account, after deducting the amount of that individual teacher's contributions,  with interest.  By this means the transactions  should more clearly show the  contributions to the accounts and  the apportionment of the interest  earned between the accounts in  respect of pensioners and active  employees.  It is interesting to note that  there is not a single teachers'  pension plan in Canada which in  corporates all of the features in  the briefs presented.  The   following  items   of   the  LEGAL  NOTICE OF INTENTION  TO APPLY FOR A  DISPOSITION  OF CROWN LAND  In Land Recording District of  Vancouver, and situate in Thorn-  brough Channel, offshore from  Andy's Bay, Gambier Island*,  British Columbia.  Take notice that Rayonier  Canada (B.C.) Limited, of Vancouver, B.C., occupation, lumber, and pulR.jnanufacturers, intends to apply for a lease of the  following described lands:���  Commencing at a Witness post  planted at the S.W. corner Lot  6038, N.W.D., said Witness Post  bearing S. 22 deg. E 2550 feet  more or less from the SE corner  of subject application; thence  West 500 feet; thence North 1123  feet; thence S 24 deg. E 1230  feet; and containdng 6 acres,  more or less.  The purpose for which the disposition is required is a mooring  and unloading area for log barges.  Rayonier Canada (B.C.) Limited  Dated 18th March, 1971.  Mar 24, 31.  briefs presented and the principles of the Bill are set out for  comparison with (in brackets)  the answer in the 1971 legislation, Bill No. 4.  Eliminate any difference in  the benefit formula for service  before and after January 1, 1961.  (As requested.)  Allow retirement at age 60 or  1 after 35 years of service with  full pension rights consisting of  a retirement allowance of 2%  of the final* average salary for  each year of service (As requested, for career teachers.)  Define the final average salary as the average of the best  50 months. (Highest seven year  average.)  Remove the maximum countable salary limit. (As request  ed.) .  Provide an allowance of 50%  to . the widow or dependent widower with no reduction of the  allowance payable to the pensioner in his lifetime. (The consulting actuary is preparing  new tables of actuarial equivalents. The reduction for joint  life and last smwdivor qpticjn  will be reduced. Retain individual selection of optional plans  for all contributors.)  Ensure that the allowances  are adjusted annually to combat erosion by inflation by the  application of an index based  upon the Average Weekly Wage  in British Columbia. (AH1 pensions increased 7% based on .  miniimum pension of $150 per  month and maximum of $300  per month.)  Provide, for changes in the  section deaiimg with the reinstatement of previous service in  British Columbia by repayment  of refunds with interest. (Reinstatement regulation will be prepared in consulation with the  British Columbia Teachers1' Federation to make reinstatement  provisions consistent with other  provinces1' plans.)  Expand the right to contributors to purchase* service pension  . credit for teaching service outside British Columbia and for  war service. (Service recognition regulation will be prepared  in consultation with the British  Columbia Teachers' Federation  to makeservice recognition provisions consistent with other  provinces' plans.)  Reduce   the   penalties   which  are  applied to pensioners  who  "are temporarily re-employed as  teachers.  (As requested.)  Provide for a 50% employer  contribution to fees for medical  coverage for pensioners' (As requested.)  Provide for an option of waiving the rights to a disability allowance in return for counting  non-contr_butory service after  disability in the calculation of  a future   retirement  allowance.  (As requested.)  Provide for withdrawal of voluntary contributions. (Income  tax authorities would not approve.)  In summary, the principles of  this. Bill are* that there should  be improved retirement benefits for all active and retired  teachers in this province, accomplished by:  ���Reducing the averaging period from the highest ten years  of earnings to the highest seven  years of earnings;  ���Removal of the ceiling on  contributory or pensionable  earnings;  ���The two percent rate applies  to all service to a maximum of  35 years;  ���Contributions after 35 years  are  discontinued,   or  refunded;  ���No reduction for early retirement for long service teachers;  ���An across the board increase for retired teachers and  their wives or widows.  This bill allocates government  contributions between active  teachers and retired teachers  in a way which is fair to them  and to the taxpayers of this  province.  At the same time; the Teachers' Pension Plan in British Columbia will rate with the best  in Canada.  ^^^+^*^^^*^^**^^^^**^*^^^^^r*^^0+**^^^***��m^  JOHN HARPER  Designer, Cabinetmaker  Carpenter  REASONABLE PRICES  886-7065  6    Coast News, March 31, 1971.  ���B.C..

PHILIP GORDON  CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT  Room 208, Harris Block  Gibsons  Ph. Bus. 886-2714; Res. 886-7567  (Copyright)  from the insurance company for  the driver of the other car, who  was totally to blame for the accident?  A. You have the right, initially, to sue the driver and/or owner of the other car. We presume  your husband was the bread winner in the family. The claim  may be made on behalf of yourself as well as- any children.  Your late husband's expected  earnings during his working life  may be claimed, less a certain  portion that would have been  used for his own benefit had he  lived.  Q. My wife was killed in a  car accident. She was a pedestrian and was not at fault at  all. Can I claim from the driver of the car? She helped me in  my business. How is it figured  how much she is worth?  A. You have a elaim ��� see  the first answer. It is very difficult to arrive at a figure. In general, you are entitled to a total'  of her monetary value as a wife  and assistant in your 'Dustiness  plus such expenses as the hiring  of a housekeeper (if there are  children) minus the cost of  maintaining a wife ��� according  to her life expectancy. There  must also be subtracted a contingency factor to cover such  matters as the possibility of remarriage and the fact that the  award is capitalized.  Q. If a loved one is killed in  an accident caused by another  person, can't you collect for  mental suffering?  A. No. There is only one way  the court can ooinipensate the  survivor and that is by awarding a judgment for a sum of  money. Sorrow, heart ache and  ���grief cannot be measured in  money. If the deceased is a child  the parents generally have suffered no financial loss. In fact  they have benefitted financially.  They are entitled to nothing except a sum towards funeral expenses. If the deceased is a  spouse, see the first two questions. Nothing is payable for  mental suffering. The status of  man and wife is not a business  relationship.  Q. My husband was severely  injured in a car accident and  the other driver was completely  to blame. We negotiated with the  other driver's insurance company and they agreed to pay all  our bills ��� medical, car damage, loss of wages, and $5,000  for pain and suffering and estimated future pain and suffering.  Then my husband had a sudden  relapse and died' as a result of  his injuries. Now the insurance  company only wants to pay our  claim less the $5,000. Don't they  have to pay this?  A. No. This portion of the  claim died with your husband.  This was to compensate him personally for the pain and suffering he endured ��� or was to endure. No one else has a right to  it. This includes such things as  crippling, dismemberment, and  cosmetic damage. If the claim  had reached the stage of a judgment before his death, it would  be collectable. US. buyers  (Continued from Page 1)  at a faster rate than in many  other countries.  Canada must face the influx  of foreoigin capital as i�� will be  needed for Canadian expansion  and it will be necessary to  equate expansion with the fear  of foreign domination.  Guessing as to taxation trends  to come, he expected Canada  would have a capital gains tax  and that there would be a method devised of allowing small  businesses to plow profits! back  into the business.  Questions asked included the  trend towards congressional me-,  thods of legislating, how to deal  with transient youths, civil service pensions" which drew him  into the drive to keep the inflationary spiral in hand. He said  he shuddered at the thought of  wage and price controls which  would mean an army oif arrogant officials. If we get into an  inflation spiral we will 'have to  do. it, he added.  Questioned on the size of  grants to Quebec compared to  other provinces he showed how  on a per capita basis the grant  was not out of proportion. Quebec's $65,000,000 on a per capita  basis amounted to $12 and the.  Maritimes $38,000,000 was on a  $19 basis.  Small boat harbors now under the department of transport  will be turned over to the Fisheries branch, he said but the  change is not yet complete. He  wondered why no license was  required for pleasure boats.  Such revenue would) be a bilg  help towards establishing small  harbors.  Repeated questions about the  proposed $50,000,000 bus drive  this summer for transients!  brought from Mr. St. Pierre that  there was no such thing and  that it was a fiction only. He  explained that money was divided among nine programs under  four ministries which took in a  multiplicity of functions including exchange programs and local voluntary agencies who  would assist youths.  The problem of aid for municipalities brought the explanation that changes' in sharing of  taxes -has resulted in Ottawa's  share going down and the provincial share going up. On this  basis he argued that the government doing the spending  should also collect the taxes. As  matters are at present one does  not know how pr where the  money originates.  NEW LAW OFFICE  Mr. B. Emerson of North Vancouver, legal counsel for the  Regional .District board and the  villages of Sechelt and Gibsons  inifbrtmed the board he planned  to open a law office in Sechelt  and would be there on a two  day basis each week.

GIBSONS  Opening  FRI., APRIL 2  Located Behind MacGregor Pacific Really  ���M-BnHBKH  LETTERS  Editor: I don't intend to get  on a soapbox like the greedy  (his word) Mr. Knowles. However I would like to compliment  the editor oif this paper who  wrote ah unsolicited editorial to  inform the people of this area  of what is happening. He did  this at the risk of taking a financial lossi and for this, he  should be comme__ded.  As a Gibsonite, and proud of  it, I resent being labelled a  "strawdhewer" by Mr. Ferguson  He probably thought that it  would be alright to make this  remark in the local paper as he  probably feels that we can't  read. Careful*, now, you property owners, maybe he feels you  can't count either.  ���LORRIE  GIRARD  Editor: I read your editorial  with much pleasure and agree  with you on every point of A  Communication Gap. The Pender Ratepayers* association has  already accomplished much and  opposed water, .garbage collection and zoning bylaws. These  they now manage themselves,'  thus saving property owners  both money, red tape and annoyance.  The existing Sargent Bay ratepayers association meets on  Easter Saturday, 7 p.m., April  10 at the Welcome Beach hall  on Redroofs road which will be  followed by a meeting of ratepayers of Area B. It is hoped:  that by choosing this date many  residents of Vancouver up for  the holiday in their cottages will  be able to attend. They have already been notified.  On Tuesday, April 6 at St. Hilda's Church Haill at 7:30 p.m.,  Sechelt ratepayers are meeting  with President J. R. Hayes to  try. and get this association more  members. It is to be hoped that  to save possible increased mill  rates due to the proposed extension of the (Sechelt) village municipal hall, the water land tax,  etc., that as many as possible  will attend! and thus save themselves the getting up oif petitions after laws are already  made and still increased.  As regards the handling of  baiggage at ferry terminals Hon.  W. D. Black writes that directors of British Columbia Ferries are looking into it. There  were a number of problems, he  writes, but he appreciated receiving advice and comment.  ���DOROTHY GREENE.  Schools must  use banks  The school board, discussing  a report from Principal T. G.  Elwood that $40 was stolen from  the school premises during a  recent weekend decided that  schools should deposit any money over $25 in the bank. It was  decided the school would not be  reimbursed! for the loss.  The board decided to ask the  department of education and the  B.C. School Teacl-ers Association to establish guidelines' in the  event of further strikes or incidents by teachers and if action  could be taken by the board  with the teachers on their return to school.  Trustee B. Mulligan went on  record protesting that no teachers were Qivailaible at the school  on the day of the strike to take  care of pupils that turned up, as  had been promised previousl'y.  The boaaid' did not favor the  Inclusion o*f teachersi under the  Unemployimenit Insurance act as  proposed bv the federal minister  of labor. The board will write  Paul St. Pierre, MP, and the  teachers association urging opposition to this move.  A pulblic meeting to hear Mr.  J. Infester on the subiect of Indian integration will be held in  Sechelt school at 8 p.m., April  5. Mr. Infester wilt have a program that afftemoon at Elphinstone . school for teachers  INVENTION  ON TV  The new life-saving device invented by Capt. William Y.  H:iggs oif Gower Point road was  a recent exhibit on. Vancouver  TV and radio. This device would  mark the location of a sunken  vessel ard also supply means for  helping crew members of the  sunken vessel to hang on until  rescued.
