Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Number 6, February 10, 1971.  10c per copy  on area  Gibsons municipal council will  provide in its annual budget  -funds for installation of fire hydrants each year and Mayor  Wally. Peterson at the last council meeting suggested maybe  two hydrants could be handled  this year.  The item came before council  when Aid. Charles Mandelkau  xeported on a tour of the area  along with fire chief Dick Ranniger and fire department instructor Cliff Mahlmian to select locations for future hydrants.  One in Payne road vicinity  was suggested' and another at  Shaw Road along with a stand-  pipe near the Gower Point Road  firehall and one at Dougal arid  Headlands Roads.  As some of these locations  would involve the Regional District board there will be combined consultation where necessary. X  ''.   ' ������'  Aid. Mandelkau explained that  the fire department was seeking  to have the area re-assessed for  fire insurance purposes. (During  January, area firemen met with  a fire insurance adjuster association official and discussed' the  area situation as regards fire-  fighting.) ,  At the Regional board, meeting om> Jan. 29 it'was announced by G. W. Dixon, water super-  . interident, that maps of the rural  areas have been made for Gilbsons & Sechelt fire departments  showing where fire hydrants are  situated in the. Reigional District.  Charles English has placed (before-the Regional District board  and Gibsons council the matter  of fire protection for the Camp  Eiphin-.tbne half million dollar  plant the YMCA has just outside  the Gibsons area .fire boundary.  .Mayor Peterson suggested perhaps the camp could purchase  a fire truck Gibsons is ho longer using.  The problem was turned over  to Aid. Gerry Dixon, chairman  of council's fire committee. This  committee works in conjunction  with the Reigional District committees.  The most interesting and controversial  of  the   new government policies announced in the  legislature, Hon. Isabel Dawson  reports,, is the extension of the  inew. Land   Act  of 1970,   which  I stat-ed at that time Crown Grants  of provincial land should only be  issued to Canadian citizens.  - The new regulations state that  1 there will be no' sale of Grown"  7 Lands whoset:;higKe:st dollar rex.  turn iis; a forest crop;7ajl prime  recreational land around all water courses including rivers will  be.  retained    for   public   use;  Crown.

Occupants of the car were Joel  Girard, David McKay, Karen  Brignall and Valerie Jackson.  According to the police report  their car was descending the  hill towards Wilson Creek when  a truck appeared at the airport  road intersection. The Gibsons  car at considerable speed swerved across the white line and continued on crashing into the Jackson Logging company office.  The four were rashed to hospital, the lad's1 eventually being  taken to Vancouver hospital.  Their injuries were.serious with  anultiple breakages and severe  contusions.

The  cost will be in the region of $4500  Centennial funds for this project come from the provincial  and federal governments with  the village raising its share also.  Work on the project will start  as soon as weather permits- so  as to have it ready for dedication on July 1.

Bruce as the senior uniformed  volunteer Scouter in the/Region.  Mr., Blair was born in Glasgow,  Scotland in. 1916 and ihas participated actively in Scouting for  approximately 45 years. He  holds the Long Service medal  from the Boy Scouts of Canada.  He was a Wolf Cub and Scout  with* 2nd Glasgow Group, assistant scoutmaster and scoutmaster with 95th Glasgow group, before being, appointed d-striot  scouter, King's Park district in  Glasgow. After bringing his family to Vancouver in 1952 he became scoutmaster of the 12th  and later of the 102nd Vancouver groups'.  In November 1958 he was appointed assistant district commissioner, Dunbar-Pt. Grey District, then district commissioner in October 1961, vice-president  of the district in 1964 and president in 1965.

His -wife and two sons have  also been active in Scouting.  Mrs; Vivienne Blair is a member of the Regional Ladies', auxiliary and both sons became  Queen's Scouts with the 102hd  Troop. Mr. Blair served with the  Royal Army Service Corps during the Second World War and  after coming to Canada joined  the Canadian Army Militia's  Provost Corps. .������������<������������  David Blair is B.C. and Alberta representative of the Architectural Hardware division of  the Stanley Works of Canada. He  is a member, of St: Helen's Ang.  Mean church.  At the annual meeting, Carl  Juul-Hansen, 120 Durham Street  West, New Westminster was reelected president and E. David  Blair, _853 West 39th Avenue,  Vancouver 13, was appointed regional commissioner.  Attending from the Sunshine  Coast were Mr. and Mrs. Ivan  Smith and Jimmy and Bob Janis  from Sechelt; Mr. arid Mrs.  Doug Honeybunn, Mrsi. N. Leit-  ner and Frank and Maxwell  Hammersmith- from Gibsons.  Fifty persons occupied Tetrahedron Ski Club's run this last  Saturday and Sunday weekend  over a base of snow about 100  inches deep with 12 inches of  soft powder snow.  The weather at the top was. in  the area of 35 degrees arid access through the B & K road has  improved considerably practically to the snow level.  A pubPc spirited donation of  two days work with his D8 eat  by Bob Alsager has moved Tetrahedron Ski Club one step closer to civilization. In fact, by  clearing the snow, -grading five  miles and filling the washout on  the B & K road, Bob has moved  the club five miles closer to the  relative civilization of highway  101.  The five mile direct route to  the 2,000 foot level of Mount  Elphinstone replaces the 10 mile  journey required along Jackson's  Wilson Creek road. Admittedly  the B & K is considerably rougher than Jackson's' and still requires four culverts, grading and  some ditching before it becomes  passable to cars. But the shorter journey will reduce wear on  the Snowcat.  On Saturday, Jan. 23, the first  iday of operation from the B & K  Merv Hunter drove the Snowcat  down to the four mile point, from  where it departed again the next  day.  It would be advisable if traffic kept to a minimum until the  surface packs. In the first week  after bulldozing it was obvious  several four-wheel drive vehicles had been all the way  through and dug ruts in the soft  surface.  Thanks are due Jackson Bros,  logging for giving the OK to  work on the road, as they still  hold the Special Usage Permit  on it.

Before   the  last   camper  left for^  home, work was started on the"  new diminig hall. This :nes^ build:  ing, designed to bl-ea^Jn/witti  the surrounding tall trees and  sloping landscape, is located at  the top of the present campus.

The old dining hall will  add  a   new   dimension   to   the  summer program, as there is a  large building set aside for a  variety of indoor activities.  During September, a site was  readied for six cabins donated  by MacMillan - Bloedtel. These  spacious cabins were brought  down from Kelsey Bay by barge  at the end of September and are  being prepared for winter use.  For the numerous' groups that  use Camp Elphinstone for conferencing and retreats in the off  season, the new dining hall and  refurbished cabins will be a  warm improvement from the  Possibly every camper who  has been to Elphinstone has  been to Mr. Corkum's farm on  Keats Island, a perennial favorite. Again last year many campers enjoyed their stay at Cbrkies  with the warm water, the apple  orchard and the tame deer. A  debt of gratitude is owed Corky  for his support and interest re-  fleeted again in his kind assistance in helping purchase the  Corkies canoe.  Through the- history of Elphinstone, campers have been transported to their out-trip sites and  base camps by a variety of vessels and vehicles. With the development of new out-trip sites,  for example Jervis Inlet for the  cold and damp of the spring and  fall months. As well, ski facilities are being planned by a ski  club for Mt. Elphinstone, which  would make winter ski camps at  Camp Elphinstone a possibility.  This summer will see a new  program designed to increase  the campers' awareness of the  wonders of the out-of-doors and  (Continued on Page 5)  STORM DAMAGE  In view of storm damage at  the top of Bal's Lane recently  which could have assumed1 serious proportions, Aid. Ken Crosby suggested to G'bsons council  that it undertake a drainage  study for the village area. Such-  a study would provide information on the quickest way to move  water and by what route.  With the aid of the provincial  roads department and Gibsons  maintenance staff a dangerous  situation at Bal's Lane was averted, Aid. Crosby informed  council  at its  Feb.  2 meeting.  Smokes  cost more  Smokes ��� cigarets, cigars,  en within the extra tax collecting range of the Bennett government. The sales tax on such purchases has been removed but the  lax on tobacco products shows  an increase over the sales! tax  rate so the gain helps swell the  provincial government coffers.  The tax on a carton of cigarets  will now be 64 cents. Under the  five percent sales tax the tax  was 22 cents.  Here is the cigaret tax: eight  twenty-fifths of one cent each, or  on a pack basis eight cents for  a pack of 25 ciigarets. Thus the  old 25 pack price was 57 cents  plus three cents tax. The new  price will be 65 cents including  tax.  The new taxation on pipe tobacco will be two cents per half  ounce according to regulations  but for buyers by the pound it  will be 64 cents tax per pound  and 32 cents tax per half-pound.  Vending machines where installed will have their rates  changed so the tax will be included.  Cigars will have a sliding scale  from, one cent on seven cents up  to nine cents on a retail price of  more than 42 cents.

Joe Benner at Wednesday  night's meeting last week _  brought the matter to the attention of council, thus ^starting a  discussion that ended'with Clerk  Ted Rayner being instructed to  look into the legalities.  There is one store outside the  village and close to the hospital  which keeps somewhat similar  hours. Clerk Rayner informed  council that years ago the village had planned a store hours-  bylaw but on the advice of the  provincial government decided  not to pass it.  The new store is reported to  be planning to sell groceries and  numerous variety goods. Council was informed that merchants  backed by the chamber of commerce were protesting.  TV for schools  says Victoria  The provincial department of  education will now share the  cost of television equipment for  school districts, it was announced by the Hon. D. L. Brothers,  minister of education.  The information is contained  in a departmental bulletin being  issued to school districts. The  cost sharing is limited to' what  the department refers to - as  stage one, or first level use of  television for elementary schools  and stage two, or second level  use, for secondary schools.  Stage one consists of receiver-  monitors, on the basis of one set  for each 120 students. Stage two  provides for limited tape-recording facilities and other essential equipment.  Mr. Brothers said that the department recognizes that the  value of television as a teaching  tool has been successfully demonstrated. Among television's  specific classroom advantages,  the minister said, is its impact,  which helps involve the learner  in the subject, and the fact that  the curriculum can be upgraded  and enriched on a regular, planned basis. It enables teachers  with special interests and competence to reach an almost unlimited number of students and  other   teachers.

Isabel Dawson, minister without portfolio in the Bennett  government, during her reply to the opening speech in the legislature asked the young people to take a look at some of the most  remarkable people ever to walk the earth!  Parents and grandparents Of those of our younger generation,  are the people, she said, who, within the last century, have,, by  their work, increased life expectancy approximately 50 percent;  who, while cutting the working day by a third, have more thain  doubled the per capita output.  These are the people who have provided the younger generation  with a healthier world than they found, and, because of their effort  and concern, we no longer have to fear the epidemics of flu, typhus,  diphtheria, smallpox, scarlet fever, measles or mumps that they  knew in their youth. The once dreaded polio is no longer a medical factor, while tuberculosis is almost unheard of.  These remarkable people Jived through history's greatest depression. Many of them know what it is to be poor, what it is to be  hungry, and cold.  And, because of this, they determined that it would not happen  to their children, who would inherit a better way of life ��� would  have better food to eat ��� would live in a warm home ��� attend  better schools ��� and would have greater opportunities to succeed  in life because of these improvements in living standards.  Today's young people are the tallest, healthiest, brightest, and  probably the best-looking generation to inhabit the land.  And, because the pevious generation were materialistic, the  younger generation will work fewer hours, learn more-, have more  leisure time, travel to more distant places, and have more of a  chance to follow their life's ambition.  The people who defeated the tyranny of Hitler, had the compassion, when the strife was over, to spend billions of dollars on  helping their former enemies rebuild their homelands; V  These same people have made more progress, by the sweat of  their brows, than in any previous era, and, in turn, they hope that  their children will make as much progress in as many areas as  they have, and, that the newer generation will be able to solve  a good many of the world's remaining ills.  The task will not be an easy one. Young people may, and can  do it, by hard work, humility, hope and faith in mankind. Thife is  quite a challenge!  > *  By reason of the progress made by our parents towards a better way of life, young people today, move at a faster pace than did  their parents ��� therefore, parents of today's young people must  learn to re-evaluate their thinking. The symbols and values found  in the home environment, are still the best basis for our way oft  life.  Parents who have earnestly and sincerely tried to inculcate  in thedr children, the fundamental truths basic to our society as we  know it, must be capable of understanding that, with progress, and  a faster pace of living, there need not be a diminishing trust in  their young people, and that these young people will, in their turn,  still cherish our way of life, while forging ahead, using) all the  means available to them, to enable them to make a still better  way of life1 for mankind.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  To rectify a recreation commission situation Sechelt council  decided to sponsor the recreation committee provided it was  responsible to the municipal  council'.  A public meeting in Wilson  Creek hall decided to recommend application for the incorporation of an Elderly Citizens  Home Society.  Curlers and ice skaters were  asked to support a move for construction of an ice rink for the  Sunshine Coast.  10 YEARS AGO  Close to 11 inches of rain or  snow fell in Gibsons area during  January. The record year was  1958 with 13 inches.  Canadian Forest . Products  Port Mellon mill will install a  $500,000 flash dryer with a capacity of 100 tons daily.  Pender Harbour area has decided to outfit a fire fighting  boat aboard a scow which will  cost $2,000.  15 YEARS AGO  Robert Burns, village clerk,  forecast that the next census  would reveal Gibsons population  will be 1,200.  Sechelt will elect its first municipal council for the newly incorporated village on April 21  with Jack Mayne as returning  officer.  Frank Sctoulstad's home on  Gower Point Road was totally  destroyed by fire.  Retail merchants in Gibsons  have announced a meeting for  Feb. 12 to discuss the credit situation.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Kinsmen Club have  signed a long lease to take over  the recreation field owned by  the Anglican church- (now Dougal Park).  Ice skating was in order on  frozen water area as the result  of cold weather lasting more  than one week.  Cliff Gray, Harry Smith and  John Cattanach have formed the  Peninsula Construction company  Editor: Being an interested observer of the affairs of the Village of Gibsons, firstly by reason  of being a ratepayer (not an absentee landlord) and secondly  because I have been a subscriber to your publication for the  past couple of years, I was so  pleased to read your editorial  column of Jan. 27, entitled Ratepayers, be Prepared.  First I must explain my intense interest in your village of  Gibsons. Over the course of the  past few years, during vacation  periods prompted by an urge  brought about because I had  been a resident of Burnaby when  a boy, I had a desire to return  to the scene of my childhood  pleasures. Upon viewing Burnaby on the site of where my  grandfather's stately rural home  once stood, I was dismayed to  find a commercial conglomerate  that completely obliterated the  memoralble images of a healthy  rural atmosphere complete with  the board sidewalks and the stable complacent way of life that  one^ associates with a rural environment.  Upon boarding the ferry at  Horseshoe Bay, and being a person of an enquiring mind, conversation with some of the passengers revealed the Sunshine  Coast to be, to say the least,  paradise. These opinions were  certainly not unfounded and my  wife and I drank in the splendor  of an obviously unspoiled part of  Canada.  After much searching we  found our happiness in a plot of  ground off Franklin Road, and  decided there and then that we  would take that little portion of  the community .and make it  something more than what we  found it, a previously ravaged  plot of ground littered with broken bottles by those who could not  appreciate the place for its beauty, but riierely for its convenience. Given time and the opportunity we hope to accornplish  the fact.  May I now take this opportunity to concur with your recent  editorial. As a resident of a  large prairie city, and having/  viewed its transition over /the/  years from a city where I could  walk down the main street and  recognize, and speak to one in  ten persons, to a city where as  a native born son I am almost  a complete stranger in their  midst, I feel most qualified to  speak. Let me quote from a recent editorial in a Calgary newspaper: ;  "Not so long ago, Calgarians'  delight at the news that theirs is  the second-fastest-growing city  in Canada and that its population . is nudging 400,000 would  have been unbounded. Today,  some of them receive it with  mixed feelings.  "To be sure, people are nice,  generally speaking, and contribute to one another's well-being  economically and in other ways.  Yet the more they congregate  together the more problems,  personal as well' as governmental and environmental, they create for one another. ��� Our pride  iri the latest census figures must  be matched by our determination to tackle the challenges of  urban life."  May I ask you to consider this  reservation of a coriimunity in  a province with almost limitless  resources, who have expanded  their boundaries with continuous  annexation procedures and who  this year find themselves short  of millions of dollars to provide  their recognized share of welfare payments.  A recent issue of the Coast  News contained an article cautioning the residents on the responsibilities that are inherent  with the village becoming a  town, Planners have recognized  that cities must now impose limitations on their size and utilize  satellite dwelling areas which  have municipal services within  the scope of their financing. I  think of the parasitical squeeze  that is being put upon communities, large and small by land  developers, in the name of progress, who always seem to be  terribly involved in municipal  politics as their unselfish contribution to community service.  Many services demanded by  so-called efficient high density  living, brought into being by the  establishment of high rise apartments etc., are represented t  be self-liquidating by reason of  the increased tax revenue thus  accrued. This. thinking is a complete fallacy. In the village of  Gibsons the status quo enables  existing landowners who appear  to be located on sizeable plots of  land to provide by means of septic fields adequate sewage facilities. For the large landholder  however, a central sewage system enables him to subdivide  rocky, hitherto unusable land,  not as an asset but as a liability to the rest of the community  to subsidize on the tax rolls.

The (Liberal MP said he was  dubious of new government legislation which makes possible  higher tariffs or other forms of  government action to protect  Canadian clothing and textile industries threatened by foreign  competition. The legislation, Bill  C-215, also ire-quires that industries seeking temporary protection: must also -submit acceptable  plans for altering their operations so that they may become  competitive.  St Pierre said he was astounded that the official opposition  party, particularly Conservatives  from the west, had not question-  ���a^J'�� SjfcS-KSOt&S*     $3S8S-3Si   f&Xir*  Photostats  ��� TAX PAPERS  ��� LETTERS  ��� MEDICAL CERTIFICATES  ��� LEGAL DOCUMENTS  and other required paper}  Ph. 886-2622  wnnniMiiuMnminuiuiiuuiMiuMuittumnniMninnnuni  ed protectionist aspects, of the  new legislation. Conservative  speakers had criticized the bill  only because it was too little and  too .ate.  "Protectionism is essentially a  self-defeating operation," St.  Pierre told the commons, and  the consumer pays for it in higher prices. He quoted a Liberal  speaker of the last century:  "These industries are like the  fatted calf, always sucking and  they will never get weaned."  St. Pierre said he favored  those sections of the bill which  provide that industries seeking  protection must rationalize their  operations but said the legislation would be just as effective  or as ineffective as the govern- ���  ment of the day chose to make  it. He suggested it was possible  for governments present or future to prop up inefficient plants  which deserved to be closed  down.  All decisions, he said, should  be subject to regular scrutiny by  parliament to ensure that the  legislation was not being misused.  Jean Luc Pepin, Minister of  Trade and Commerce, objected  to St. Pierre's designation of the  bill as protectionist. He also ob  jected to criticisms of Progressive Conservative spokesmen  who said it didn't offer enough  protection. All current factors  would be elements of any government's decision, he said.  All other Liberal, Conservative, NDP and Creditiste spokesmen supported the bill but Theo-  gene Ricard (P.C. - St. Hya-  cinthe) and Louis-Roland Comeau (South Western Nova), the  leading Conservative party  speakers, said it should have  been introduced1 years ago to  help the affected industries. Rod  Thompson (NDP - Battleford  Kindersley) suggested Canada  made an error in trying to produce some lines such as cottons  in competition with Britain and  India.  Coast News, Feb. 10, 1971.  ESSLEMONT EQUIPMENT SERVICES LTD  PORTABLE STEAM CLEANING  and  AUTOMOTIVE UNDERRATING  al Vancouver Prices  Phone 886-2784  .Emily Carr, a celebrated Canadian painter and writer, is  commemorated during the 100th  Anniversary of the year of her  birth by a 6c stamp reproducing  Big Raven, one of her most famous paintings. The date of issue  of the new stamp is Feb. 12.  The doubly gifted artist was  born on Dec. 13, 1871, in Victoria  British Columbia. Throughout  her work as a painter Emily  Carr was influenced by a passionate love for her native province and particularly the culture of its West Coast Indian  tribes. Although she had been  painting since the turn of the  century her modern style did not  gain favorable recognition in  this country until 1927 when she  was invited to exhibit her work  at the National Gallery in Ottawa. Six years later she became  a member of the Canadian Group  of Painters.  In the final years of her life  ill health forced Emily Carr to  give up her painting. She turned  to writing about her beloved pro- v  vince and by the time of her  death in 1945 she had completed  six books. The first of these, entitled Klee Wyek, was a series  of tales and sketches of West  Coast Indians and it won for her  the Governor-General's Award  for .nonaction in 1941.  The Canadian Bank Note Company of Ottawa is printing 27  million of the Emily Carr issue  by four color lithography. The  stamp measurer 30mm by 30mm  and is red, yellow, blue and  black in color.

At the  same time,  emphasis  is being  placed   on   providing   campers  with the,ability to recognize the  delicate balance of the natural  world. Camp Elphinstone is well  suited for developing such a program, given the unspoiled surroundings of the campsite.  Older caariipers have visited  Port Mellon where they were  given a tour of the Canadian  Forest Products pulp mill. The  purpose of these tours is to give  the campers an opportunity"i��  understand the relationships be^  tween our standard of living,  our natural resources, and industry.   "��������� y �����-:_,  A new nature trail was designed' and built to make maximum  use of the multitude of fascinating natural phenomena which  occur in the area. Rather than  describe and label these different aspects of nature, the guide-  jpost signs would merely point  out the existence of something  worthy of note in the immediate  area and leave it up to the. boys  and their counsellor to discover  what it was all about. In this*  way all the senses are utilized,  along with the boys' natural  sense of .wonder.;. One cabin  group started off on a berry pick  ing hike, and ended up making  their own huckleberry^blackber- ���  ry syrup!  Camp Elphinstone was fortunate to secure the use of a number of out-tripping-sites in Howe  Sound. With- the increased use of  this area for recreation it is necessary to insure that out-tripping  sites" used by the camp be preserved for their uniqueness and  privacy. Many of these sites  will be familiar to old Elphin-  stoners. -i  Mr. Robert Winram kindly allowed the boys from Camp Elphinstone the use of his beach  property situated in West Bay.,  This is a particularly beautiful  waterfront property free from  log booms.  Vancouver Tug & Barge Co.  has allowed the use of their  property in Cotton Bay, whichl  is across from the camp. This is-  an outstanding; out-trip site as^  very few people are ever in the  area, thereby preserving its natural beauty. A small creek runs  through the property and affords  interesting exploring for younger campers.  The beautiful valley of McNab  Creek has long been a favorite  of Elphinstone campers. Over  the next few. years a logging operation may limit activity, although Canadian Forest Products has allowed use of areas  not being logged. As well, the  older campers have been permitted to use the recently constructed road between McNab  Creek and Salmon Inlet,  older campers, it became obvious that a proper passenger-  vehicle was needed that could;  comfortably   carry   one   cabin  group. With the generosity of the  YMCA Endowment Fund, a new  nine seat Chevrolet mini-bus  was purchased.  After next summer, the Vancouver-YMCA will host a coeducational intercultural youth  camp at Elphinstone; There will  be two principal groups participating in this camp ��� the established Canadian cultures of the  Indians, Eskimos, French and  English together with new Canadians ��� young immigrants who  have just recently landed in Canada from various countries  around the world.  "'/_*  '_*  W: y \x  Coast News, Feb. 10, 1971.       5  The purpose of this camp is to  provide a setting for young people of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds to come together and enjoy a program which  makes use of ail the natural  wonders of British Columbia. At  the same time, the emphasis of  the program will be to create  an understanding and appreciation of the diversity of the human elements that together  make up this country. '  It is hoped that with the new  facilities at Elphinstone there  can be offered many more new  programs both for the YMCA  and for other interested organ-  ations.

Ernest Richardson,  pany president, said the request  for increased rates has Ibeen  forced by very high interest  rates, on borrowed capital required for expansion, and by increased costs of labor, supplies  and other components required  to build, operate and maintain  the phone system.  The rate proposals would re^  suit in increases of from 30 cents  to $1.05 in monthly charges for  local-residential telephone service. Business rates for an individual line would increase by  from 95 cents to $2.85 monthly.  This would mean residential  customers with individual-line  service would pay $7.20 monthly  in Vancouver and New Westminster, up 95 cents; $6.20 in Victoria, up 80 cents; $5.85 in  Prince George, up 75 cents; $5.55  in Kamloops, Nanaimo, Port Alberni and Trail, up 70 cents; and  $5.30 in Nelson and Cranbrook,  up 70 cents.  Connection charges, made to  cover the labor intensive costs  of processing customer orders,  would increase to $10 from $6  for residential installations and  to $15 from $10 for business installations.  Residential extension phone  charges would increase by 20  cents monthly in exchanges with  fewer than 10,000 phones and by  15 cents in those with more than  10,000 phones, bringing the rates  to $1.25 and $1.40 monthly, respectively.  Colored telephone set charges,  made only on the first occasion  when a customer gets a colored  set, would be reduced to $6 from  $9 for a new installation and to  $4 from $6 for a set in place on  the customer's premises.  In  long distance  service, increases of from five to 20 cents  for the first three minutes  of  person-to-person calls crossing a  distance of 600 air miles or less  company  The company's application  could result in the following increases, starting Aug. 1 in the  basic monthly exchange rates  in:  (Where applicable, mileage  charges ��� which would increase  by five to ten cents per quarter  mile ���- are in addition.)

This  District has jurisdiction over the area between Jervis Inlet and Howe Sound including Nelson Island, Gambier  Island, Keats Island and other smaller islands and extends  inland to border with the Squamis'h-Lillooet Regional District. It was established by the Provincial Government on  January 4, 1967 under provisions contained in the Municipal Act.  WHAT I. ITS COMPOSITION!  It consists of six rural Electoral Areas and two Municipalities, Gibsons and Sechelt. The Electoral Areas are:  Area "A" ���- Pender Harbour and Egmont; "B" ��� Halfmoon Bay and West Sechelt; "C" ��� Selma Park and Davis Bay; "D" ��� Roberts Creek;  "E" ��� Gower Point;  "F" ��� Granthams Landing to Port Mellon. Each* area has  a Director representing it who is elected for a two year  term; Municipalities appoint a Director annually. The  eight Directors represent approximately 1,000 to 1,500  persons each.  WHAT IS ITS PURPOSE!  The Regional District was formed to provide an answer to  the ever increasing demand in rural areas for essential  services which hitherto were only available to Municipalities. By joint action its members can initiate action for  part, parts or the whole of the District.  WHAT ARE ITS FUNCTIONS!

YOU DO.By direct individual approach to your area Director or by petition to the Board or by request from your  local Associations you make the need for a service known.  If it is economically feasible and practicable to apply, the  Board will approve the request and take the necessary action to implement it. Under almost all circumstances it is  necessary for a vote to be taken (referendum) and a sixty  per cent majority obtained before a service can be provided to the area requesting it.  BOARD MEETINGS  The Board meets at least once every month, usually on the  last Friday. These meetings are open to the public and  are held at the Regional District Office in the Whitaker  Block, Davis Bay.

IF your  children are  in school here .. .  IF you work, play,  and worship here ..  Doesn't it  make good sense  to keep your  money here?  FREE PARKING  TOP VALUES  GREATS VARIETY  FRIENDLY SERVICE  into the shoes of an ailing lead  and achieves success. I believe  the reasons can be found in  many months of hard work by  the junior singer.  This was certainly the case  when Vancouver mezzo-soprona  Lyn Vernon replaced the international star Tatiana Troyanqs-,  in the title role of Bizet's Car-,  men for a performance last  month at the Grand Theatre,  Geneva.  It was another long step up  the operatic ladder for a singer  who first tried out her voice in  a UBC performance of Mozart's  Requiem some years ago and  then turned her back on a planned career as a pianist in favor  of a more exciting future as an  opera  singer.  ' After preliminary training with  French Tickner's UBC Opera  Workshop, Lyn received her pro-"  fessional initiation into opera in  the VOA Training Program with  Robert Keys. She sang lead roles  with the B.C. Opera Ensemble  and made her debut with the  VOA before going to San Fran-r  cisco in June, 1968, for work in  the Merola Opera Program,  where she won the award as the  most promising student. A Can-,  ada Council grant took her to  Switzerland for further study in  September of that year, first to  Zurich, and with further assistance from the Koerner Foundation, for the past year at Geneva.  Her last appearance in Vancouver was the result of the interest the VSO arid Meredith Davies have taken in our younger  singers   abroad  she   came  home in May, 1969, to appear as  soloist with the orchestra and to  sing Mrs. Noah in Britten's children's opera Noah's Flood.  The next step in Lyn's career  is a Paris recital, and then, early in the New Year, this tall,  good-looking brunette goes to  Palermo to sing Waltraute in a  German festival production of  Wagner's The Twilight of the  Gods. And that's a long, long  way from the alto solos of Mozart's Requiem in UBC's Brock  Hall.  Dave Vernon is looking after  the Vernon property while ^his  parents are travelling overseas.  $500 COLLECTED  ���  f - ���     ��� ....  Gibsons area Cu)p of Milk  Fund sponsored by Mrs. Audrey  Bennie of Hopkins Landing, collected $500 which has been sent  , on to the Unitarian Service Committee in Ottawa for its overseas  fund for the benefit of the hungry.  School needs  this picture!  One evening early last year  two framed pictures of the Grade  12 classes of Elphinstone Secondary School were taken from  the collection on the wall in the  "main hall. The school has since  been able to locate a copy of  one of the pictures but have not  been able to get a copy of the  1956 class. The community is  being asked to help find a copy  so that a duplicate may be  printed and the collection again  completed.  Members of the class were:  Sharon Baba, Keith Baker, Coral Benn, Mary Ann Carruthers,  Joyce Connor, Lorraine D'Aoust,  Doug Davies, Dodie Farnham,  Yvonne Gary, Diane Harris,  John Higgs, Mary Kerr, Rheta  Lemieux, Frances Lien, Kirsten  Lien, Doug Livingstone, Don McDonald, Annette Marleau, Bill  Nimmo, Dave Parish, Pat Peterson, Frances Randall, Kathy  Rouse, Joy Scott, Dave Sherman  George Slinn, Norma Turner,  Sharon Tyson, Mike Whitaker,  Margaret Williams and Vivien  Wiren.  It is hoped that some parent  or pupil who has not already  been contacted will be able to  assist in locating a print.  Labor scene  A permanent arbitrator has  been appointed by the coast forest industry and the IWA to settle grievances in the industry.  He is Vancouver lawyer Henry  E. Hutcheon, Q.C Forest Industrial Relations and the IWA  agreed this week on his appointment for a three-year term.  Hutchon will replace the traditional three - man arbitration  boards which have been appoint-  disputes arising under the master contract.  His appointment will, in no  way, interfere with the work of  Mr. Justice Hinkson who is the  present interpreter of the contract.  Decision to appoint a single  permanent arbitrator in disputes  other than contract renewals  was part of the coast forest in-  year.  The change is designed to  streamline grievance procedure  and provide for continuity in decisions.  Under the contract, the labor  minister may appoint a temporary replacement if, for some  reason, the permanent arbitrator cannot act.  Gilmore's Variety  LAST CHANCE FOR VALENTINES  Cards.

I especially  appreciate the ones relating to  the crisis in Montreal.  And so I venture to write to  you as my member concerning a  matter that disturbs me a good  deal. I consulted others, younger  than I but with a record of work  amongst young people, and  found them disturbed too. It is  the rumored plan of bussing the  young from hostel to hostel  across the country next summer. There is no indication that  it was to bring them near any  possible employment.  Now I know that there is always a suspicion that people  who have lived and suffered  through the depression years  are suspect; but I like young  people, enjoy the friendship of  many and am delighted that as  many Canadians as possible see  our country. BUT ��� is this the  way to charm the seriously unemployed of the older group?  I wish to express my reasons  for being disturbed in three  steps; the last is to me the most  serious.  I know quite a few young people who have worked their way  into seeing not only Canada but  Europe and Australia, New Zealand, etc. All of them were prepared to take any honest job  without questioning if it were,  God save us, menial. Is it fair  that their taxes should make  mollycoddles of others?  It is my experience from 40  years in education that the average young person' welcomes a  decent challenge; in fact some  are delighted to find they could  do even better than they thought  But you don't get that feeling  riding fre^ or learning army drill  when there are trails to be made  in our parks and other such jobs  which would be a service. I  would like a government to challenge these young people before  it is too late; for laziness and  self-indulgence can grow.  But most serious is the fact.  that I have noted that people  tend to despise those whom they  are using, and, sadly enough,  from that tend to despise themselves. And it is the person who  despises himself who is the wanton destroyer.  I am writing to you because  I do not know where7 else to  turn; during the depression I  lived in mining and lagging  camps in the North ��� and went  hungry often ��� in a float house  in the inside channel* near a  work camp for the unemployed.  Many of the young fellows talked to me and while there, were  complaints (some sent over to  chop the teachers' wood had to  be taught how by that teacher!)  I still learned a lot to add to my  picture.  ���Sincerely,  Miss X.  Dear Miss X:  Yours is one of many letters  on this subject. As far as I can  determine, the free bus story  is pure speculation. I have been  unable to find anybody in the  ministry who is suggesting free  travel for any Canadian youngster who wants to be elsewhere  than where he is for no clear  reason.  I'm interested in the matter,  because I think there is a strong  case to be made for spending  some money, on something akin  to a scholarship basis, to enable  selected young British Columbians to travel Canada and see  their own.country during summer vacations. But this is a very  different from job-lot free transport for the lazy people.  However, most important, I  thank you for the letter because  of the thought that went into it.  Accordingly, without using your  name, I am using its contents  for the weekly newspaper column.  ���Paul STt. Pierre, M.P.,  Coast-Chilcotin.  Edna Jure and Messrs.

What happens if a company or  finm breaks a contract ��� by the  action of their employee? What  happens if a principal refuses to  carry out the terms of a contract entered into with another  by his agent?  It will be seen in all these situations that there are three persons involved. If it is necessary  to sue, everyone wants to sue the  man who has the money. It  would <often be pointless to sue  the actual employee or agent  who caused the breach of contract or the injury. The employer or the principal is the person  sought to be sued. The law recognizes that an employer or  principal is the proper party to  be sued and usually make him  responsible.  A principal is bound in contract by the acts of his agent. If  the agent has proper authority  to let us say sell some goods for  $5,000 and he enters into a contract on behalf of his principal  to sell them for $4,000 ��� the  purchaser can force the principal to abide by the contract.

Even though the  damages was caused by an employee the store owner can usually be sued.  Does an employee bind his  employer in contracts? Usually  not, but the outstanding exception occurs where the employee  is a sales clerk. The commonest  case occurs where the sales  clerk quotes an incorrect (and  lower) sale price for an article.  The store must sell for that  price and can be forced to do so  or can be sued for the difference  between that price and what the  customer was obliged to pay else  where.  The moral of the story is that  it is up to the employer or principal to hire competent help.  Properly law  report coming  The Law Reform Commission  of British Columbia expects to  present its initial report to the  attorney general. Of particular  interest to many women will be  the section of the report dealing  with property relations between  husband and wife, Hon. Isabel  Dawson said in the legislature  during the debate on the opening  address.  As of now, property relations  between husband and wife are  governed by the common law  principles of separate property.  Where marriages are a going  concern, there are usually no  difficulties. But the law is far  from just in7 many situations  where the marriage conies to  an end through death or divorce,  or practically speaking, on separation.  This is particularly important  where all or most of the assets  of the family are held by one of  the spouses. Even where there  are joint holdings, such as joint  bank accounts, the law does not  appear to be" satistfactbry; v  The functioning of the. present  system of support obligations  (i.e. maintenance payments) is  also much in need of review, as  many a mother faced with the  responsibility of supporting  young children can testify.  The law of support is obviously closely related to the proper-  ty question. It is the intention of  the commission' that, once the  existi_-_f law 6ii these topics has  been examined, the two subjects  will be treated together.  This is a matter which concerns many women and I have  received a great deal of correspondence on the subject of law  reform.  Those who have written to ask  whether law reform in this area  is possible, feel that a woman  who is widowed, divorced, separated, or deserted, is olEten  faced with great financial, hardship, arid I am sure we all look  forward to any changes that  may alleviate these hardships,  arid prdvide a more equitable afr-  rangeriierit in law, for eittwir  marriage partner^ should tile  question of property division dr  support obligations arise.  for Real Estate on the  K.

However, he should also be  aware that the cost need not  have been so excessive, by about  2Qi%, if it had not been for the  delaying tactics indulged in.  mainly by, and mark this, individuals who will riot (if they  can prevent it) toe served by the  system nor share in the extra  cost entailed as a direct result  of their guerilla activities.  Their particular bone of contention seems to have been not  so much the kind of treatment  envisaged but the fact that the  effluent outfall was to be located in the vicinity of Gospel Rock  This, they argued, would pollute  adjacent beach areas.  TT-ie writer, unlike some of the  Art   Carneys   in   the   outlying  areas around Gibsons, claims no  expert knowledge in this filthy  field but he did take a look around in an honest endeavor to  ascertain whether in  his  opinion, these anti-pollution zealots  were behaving in" a responsible  manner. The only conclusion he  could arrive at was that the engineers were right since it seemed to be the only place where  tide action would take the effluent away from the coastline.  Or would these obstructionists  have preferred to keep right on  dumping the stuff into the bay  where it would just go out on  the ebb and retuirh on the flood?   .  The place already stinks to high^  heaven as do several other areas *'v"  in lower Gibsons. I'm not against  pollution control but believe it  should be carried on in a responsible manner. Likewise-1 believe that the actions of council should be subject to scrutiny  but in this instance I believe harassment would have a more suitable term.  If these characters are sincere  in their beliefs why pick on a  tiny village when there are a  couple of local pulp mills spewing out filth into not one but two  elements and they could really  give these blockers a fight. But  I don't anticipate any excitement there as- it is one thing to  harass a village with, incidentally, a high percentage of pensioners who will be hard hit by  the antics of the atn-tis, and some  thing else to indulge in sword-  play with a powerful industrial  giant.  Possibly also, this could be a  very sensitive personal area as  it might be like attacking the  Golden Goose which lays their  weekly pay packet. The buck  beats principles every time!  Anyway, now that qualified  opinion has prevailed over hysteria why don't these objectors  abandon their stinking cesspools  and help shoulder a portion of  the extra cost which their actions helped create?  There, is a crude but succinct  saying, "Put your money where  your mouth is (was)." Does it  have an application here?  ���E. BIRCHENALL,  (Harassed Pensioner).
