According  to the Forest Services' chief  l-roteictiion officer, W. Cy Phillips, a considerable number of  last year's record 4003 forest  fires started from abandoned  campfires and several were very  costly.  To curb the danger, outlets for  caimpfire permits have been  greatly reduced. They will include all forest ranger and forest  district offices, the protection division off ice' in Victoria, and  oniy such other agencies as may  be required to adequately serve  the public.  Permits will be valid only  within the forest district in  Which they were issued. They  can be obtained in Gibsons and  Sechelt at Municipal halls.  : The effective term of each  permit will be specified to meet  the needs of the applicant and  7 not necessarily for the* full season, to the end of October.  Subdivision for  W. Porpoise Bay  A subdivision plan involving  23 plots in West Porpoise Bay  property being developed by Aid  Ted Osborne was approved by  Sechelt's ������council'-at,, last week's  , meeting with Aid. Osborne sit-:,  -ting back,from the council table;  as a spectator only. Aid. Os*  borne was therefore unable to  vote on his own proposal. Aid.  Joe Benner was absent.  Aid. Osborne said he had / envisaged a completed development of 103 -k>ts. and intimated  that when 20 of the 23 lots had  been sold he proposed to go  ahead with; paving the road  through it.  Oh the subject of paving council proposed to spend. $2,000  there this year. It was first su__v  gested that this be raised to  84,000 by omitting $2,000 set  aside for waterfront" improvement. However council decided  to leave the West Porpoise Bay  figure at $2,000 and go ahead  with waterfront improvement.  Big bottle drive  A massive bottle drive campaign is planned for Friday, April 30, The government of Eliphin*-  stone Secondary school has \or-  ganized a program to cover the  area from Park Arve. to the  Langdafe Elementary school.  The total area covered has  been sectioned into 11 districts  five in Gibsons and six rural in-  : eluding Roberts Creek, Gower  Point and Pratt Rd,"Granthams,  Hopkins, Langdale and No*rth  and Reed Roads:  Proceeds from' this compaign  will1 go towards' various school  projects and travel funds for  next year.

Cookie sales bring  in much needed revenue which  is shared equally among the divisions and the provincial office.  The girls look forward to selling their cookies each year and  it is hoped householders in the  area will Ibe on the lookout.for  the girls in brown and blue on  Saturday between^ 10 a.m. and  noon.  This is everyone's opportunity  at a small cost, to help all the  Guides and Brownies of this  area.  Don Douglas of Gibsons area  was elected president of St.  Mary's Hospital Society at its  annual meeting Monday night in  Sechelt's Legion Hail. Mr. Douglas takes over from Mr. F. J.  Willis who remains a member  of the board.  Eric Hensch, of Sechelt was  named vice-president succeeding Mr. Douglas and Ernest  Booth also of Sechelt was elected treasurer replacing A. J. Rutherford of Halfmoon Bay, who  retired and was presented with  a life membership in the society  for his sejven years of laboring  on behalf of the public for the  betterment of the hospital service.  Trustee elections saw Mr. Rutherford, H. Hubbs andF. H.  Normiriton re-elected and Rolph  Bremer of Pender Harbour, Ron  McSavaney of Roberts Creek  and F. W. Leuchte of Redrooffs  elected to fill vacancies. Mr.  Bremer, Hubbs, Leuchite and  Norminton    were    elected    for  three years and Mr. McSavaney  for two years.  Ernie Booth, the new treasurer reported that assets of the  hospital which were about $30,-  000 in 1960 are now in the region of $2,500,000.  The 1970 financial statesmen t  showed revenue over expenditure amounting to $34,904 on a  budget of $529,500 which was  $56,889 higher, than 1969's budget. Salary and waige increases  amounted to $25,6601  On the operating side, patient  days showed a drop of about  430 but newborn days increased  from 761 in 1969 to 930 in 1970.  The standard ward rate was  raised from $30.60 to $37,75 and  day rate earnings which were  $436,455 in 1969 reached $484,527  in 1970. While there were in-  creases in same expenditures  there* were savings in housekeeping, laundry and direct care'of  patients.. "    ^  Owing to lack of time and  space reports from the.varioiis  sections of the organization will1  be included in next week's paper. -7     < ���-...,  DON DOUGLAS  7 ���   Heads Hospital Society  Wafer  A Kin explanation  Editor: I would-like this let-  terfe published "iii' your next issue  if possible as T . would like.-. to  voice my feelings for the lack  of entertainment our kids have.  When the Kiin-20 was around,  there was a supervised place to  isend .the'-kMs. ,Why���:'���''did:-this or-  ::^niza^onXxgi^0\^^  What" is 'better entertainment  than dancing, besides they like it  and' if it keeps them off the  streets and who knows where  else it's good. Why was such a  good source- of entertainment  abandoned)? I would like to see  another organization like the  Kin-20 start up again. I'm sure  it would be a profitable organization... ''���'���'  ���A CONCERNED PARENT  This unsigned letter deserves  an answer so here is what the  Kinsmen club reports:  The Kin-20 club .was set up by  the Kinsmen under a new section of their constitution which  allows the formation of youth  auxiliaries. In order to operate  under.the name of Kiri-20 there  are certain requirements that  must be maintained. The club  cannot be Officially chartered  with less than 15 members, and  cannot operate indefinitely under the name without an official  charter. The few active members were unable to attract more  members to get their member  ship up high enough to receive  a charter, and the Gibsons Kinsmen regretfylly had to withdraw  their support. 7 7  It should also be pointed out  the supervision of Tfche dances  was the responsibility of the  Kinsmen, who^aire; a small clubi  :so thai;the���'.s-a_iie.rmel_ib(2^��?'..were'  continually called upon to supervise. If you have attended one  of these dances, you will realize  that it-is not the type of music  and dance that appeals to all  adults. Consequently it becomes  more and more difficult to obtain adult supervisors.  The Kinsmen club regrets having to take the step it did, and  it was not .taken without considerable debate within the club.  Mimmiuuuuinittimuuwinuummimiuunirairannmnnmmmi  Correct address  Under the school youth  program of work this summer, information from the  Victoria office of Hon. Isabel  Dawson reports that those  seeking such work should  write to the Accelerated  Parks Program of the Parks  Branch at Victoria. Applicants must be 18 years old  and have completed grade 12  I  Faced   with wells  drying  up  ���soon,  a  delegation for Gibsons  THeights-Reed   Rd.   area   asked  ^Gibsons council for answers to  $heir water problem, as so far  Tthey had nothing;  '���".";-���- Chris Beacon, Jim Waterhouse  :and Clarence Sicotte* were memibers   of   the   delegation.    Are  Iplans-: available?  was Mr..:' Bea,-;  Tcon's question. Clerk David John  ston said discussions had been,  i ||ont^T-ecl^thi:p^e^he^s-hui  i-  there are no actual plans. However, the cost has  been  set at  u $33,000, depending somewhat on  Regional    Board    co-operation.  Aid. Charles Mandelkau said he  expected work would start this  summer and council would not  wait for Regional board co-operation.  Mayor Wally Peterson said the  engineers have looked into Reed  Rd. and- have a coupife of  schemes. The Regional Board  had: been approached for co-operation but it turned1 it over to  its water superintendent to see  if it is financially feasible for  the Regional board to come into  the scheme.  He added that only this morning (Tuesday) the matter was  discussed and it would be safe  to say the village would start at  its end and lay a six inch pipe  and hope the Regional board  will come into the scheme. If the  Regional board declines the village will have to add a plastic  pipe at the other end and pump  water through.  Capital financing for municipalties  (By THE EDITOR)  To indicate the scope of municipal financing the provincial  government in 1969 introduced a  projected five-year municipal  capital expenditure program  Which gave indication of what  municipalities hoped to achieve.  The provincial government found  that for the next five years some  thing like five hundred million  dollars would be required if projected plans were to-be fulfilled.  The government also, found  that five year revenues of municipalities would reach about half  that amount and such revenues  would be absorbed in normal,  operative budigetting. With the  bond market out of reach of municipalities it was decided to organize a Municipal Finance Authority to provide means for financing water, sewer and pollution abatement facilities.  This authority was launched  on April 22, 1970 by representatives of 22 out of 28 regional districts at a meeting in Victoria J  A board of trustees, all municipal men, was appointed.  The legislation provided that  financing for [municipalities  would be arranged by regional  districts, including financing for  towns and villages within the  regional district. The regional  district issues the debentures  then lends the proceeds to the  area requesting such help.  The legislation also provides  that a reserve fund be set up  covering each borrowing on a  broader basis than a town or village. The entire regional district  is involved in the setting up of  reserve funds.  As an example, Gibsons will  provide $5,050 for the water reserve fund, Sechelt $2,399 and  the six regional district areas  $42,061 which added to the amounts supplied by the villages  will total slightly more than the  $60,000 required as a water development reserve. This wiE be  a one year shot and does not  continue, the reserve actually  making up the final payment of  the money borrowed for water  purposes.  The total regional district assessment on Gibsons amounts to  $10,241 broken down to $3,272  for administration purposes.  $1,197 for garbage sites, $722 for  environmental planning and $5,-  050 for water (for the reserve  fund).  The Sechelt breakdown of its  $4,866 assessment, is $1,555 for  administration, $569 for garbage  sites, $343 for planning and  $2,399 for water (for the reserve  fund).  The reserve fund breakdown  for the various areas is: Area A  $10,387; Area B $4,506; Area C,  $4,680; Area D $3,542; Area E  $2,351 and Area* F $25,085 based  on the assessment figures covering chiefly the Canadian Forest Products mill at Port Mellon.  This assessment is based on  ���legislation which calls for each  regional district sharing in the  debenture issue, to pay to the  Municipal Finance Authority an  f**"'T_mt equal to one-half the average annual instalment of principal arid interest for a debt reserve fund.  Cc-unoils that desired to remain outside the scope of the  Municipal Finance Authority had  until July 2, 1970 to have their  rejection recorded. For the Sunshine Coast Regional District  neither Gibsons nor Sechelt decided to opt out.  Development plan  covers Gibsons  Mayor Wally Peterson of Gibsons announced that in about  two weeks time he will present  his overall plan for development  of Gibsons and adjacent areas  in conjunction with his water  policy, at Tuesday night's council meeting.  The plan, worked over for  more than a year, with council's  professional town planners, has  been sent to municipal department officials and on its return  it will be placed before the Regional board followed by a public meeting at which it will be  examined thoroughly.  Chekwelp users of Gibsons water, considering an extension to  the line will be informed by  council that any extension would  have to be sought from.1 council.  Minister of Travel and Recreation Kiernan informed' council  of Anti-Litter Week May 9 to 15  and points out that the real challenge is at the community level.  He  asked   that   council   inform  Victoria of what was done locally. The mayor pointed out  that Gibsons was ahead by having its clean-up earlier.  The provincial assessor inform  ed council that some church  lands not being used could be  liable for tax assessment. Council will investigate to see what  is the situation in Gibsons.  Fire Chief Dick Ranniger asked that copies of building permits go to Robert Wilson, assistant fire marshall to allow inspection. The chief will be notified the fire marshall can check  on such permits at the Municipal'  Hall once a week, or give the  building inspector the powers of  a fire marshall. -  A Paul St. Pierre letter outlining the federal government  summer youth program was  read out. Council decided to turn  the matter over, to Rev. Jim  Williamson Who it was explained  was taking considerable interest  in the youth movement.  School rate again reduced  This year's school district tax  rate will be 29.36. Last year it  was 30.63. This will mean a reduction of -1.27 or slightly more  than one and one quarter mills.  Both Gibsons and Sechelt councils have been informed of the  rate on. this year's assessment.  Increased grants to school dis<-  tricts" under: the provincial education finance formulia and increased , grants* for colleges will  result in their, being practically-  rio increase in the. province-wide  average school mill rate, and,  because of the increase in the  Home Owner grant, the majority  of residential property-owners  should have a reduction in local  school taxes for 1971, Hon. D. L.  Brothers, minister of education,  announces.  The provincial government has  provided $172,000,000 for direct  grants to school districts for elementary and secondary schools,  $7,680,000 for teachers' superannuation and $14,000,000 for.  college grants to school districts.f  Also, to reduce local school  taxes   on   residential   property-  Nursery term ends  The Jack and Jill Nursery  School thanks those who attended and helped make the end of  the term open house event a success. The children enjoyed them*-  selves and their last day saw  them go home bearing baskets  they had made filled with Easter  eggs which they had hunted.  Registrations are now being  taken for the September term.  There is the possibility of a split  week if enough children are available. This means you could  send your three-year-old for two  days a week or your four to five  year olds three days a week.  Fees would run according to the  number of days a week the child  attends school'.  Those interested are urged to  attend  the   Wednesday,   May  5  .meeting at 8 p.m. in the Health  Unit baseonent.  Navy visit  Two naval vessels. HMCS  Miramachi and Thunder, will  visit Port Mellon Monday and  Tuesday, May 3 and 4. Both are  mine sweepers ard will be onen  for public display. Hours when  these vessels will be open for inspection wili be 10 a.m. to noon  and 1 to 3 p.m. on May 4. There  will also be a fireworks' display  at 9 p.m. on May 3.  PHONE NUMBER CHANGE  The RCMP office at Sechelt has a new telephone  number. It is 885-2266. The  old number was 885-2121 and  is no longer in use.  owners the government has increased the Home Owner Grant  from $160 to $170 and provided  $60,500,000 for this purpose.  These combined figures for this  year make a total of $254,180,000  in grants7 and payments for the  school districts' education costs.  The 1971 overall average milt  rate province-wide for elesmen-  tary and secondary schools'arid  for colleges is 31.88 m_Us7 For  1970 the overall average .mill  rate was 31.81" mills.   ~""       '���  BASEBALL  BRONCOS  Gibsons Firemen 16  Wilson Creek Orioles 5  Sechelt Legion 18  Gibsons Merchants 0  LITTLE LEAGUE  Gibsons Kinsmen 14  Wilson  Creek a  Roberts Creek 15  Sechelt 6  Gibsons Boom Men, playing'  in their first league gam�� and  after only practice as a team  made a valiant effort against  Pender Harbour on Sunday.

Take the CCC ��� Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps to  provide work for 250,000 men in forestry, soil conservation and!  flood control. How about the AAA ��� to restore farm prices and  farmer purchasing power. The NRA ��� National Recovery Administration, part of the Roosevelt New Deal -to revive a distressed1  United States economy.  Today both federal and provincial governments are doing a  considerable amount of priming the pump and are battling in world  markets and on the home front as well, striving to bring farm income to a more comfortable level. The national economy is being  manipulated sameWhat but compared to the 1930s, is now being!  pressed downwards, not .upwards.  Today our young adults and teeners are roaming the country1  hoping for .something. They know not what! Tthey also roamed  across western Canada, Ottawa bound, in the 30s but were baited  at Regina where'a riot ensued resulting in a breakup of the On-to-  Ottawa movement.  We have various devices under different names but doing practically the same work in 1971 as they did in the 1930s. A(p|paren_ly  now as then the Keynsian theory of financing is still vogue. This)  theory is for government spending in times of distress. Some people call it pump priming of the economy.  Time marches on but we somehow drag our feet. However the  methods used in the present monetary crisis are somewhat more  sophisticated than those of the Roosevelt days. The nomenclature  used varies but the intent is roughly the same. \  An increasing menace  With local RCMP clamping down on hitch-hiking and warning  merchants to make their business premises more secure their 1'oud  and clear message should not be ignored,. The basic hippie movement with its numbers depleted has gravitated to a -.and core of  drifters whose idea of free enterprise isjthe use-of other people-list  property without authority.  Examination by RCMP of the trend of thievery now going ofy  in this area reveals the desire for liquor and food as paramount.-  There are those people who say they cannot help themselves  in the present economic situation. Author Sandflies wrote that the  Lord helps those who help themselves. This is being taken literally  by the drifters. Perhaps their attention should be drawn to the fact  Saturday's Vancouver Sun had close to 32 columns of help wanted,  covering every category one can think of.  This might be heretical for a segment of the population whosfe  objective is to hell with the establishment ��� so long as the estab-7  lishment is willing to cater to their desires.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons sets its mill rate at  18.92 mills and Sechelt held to  its ten mill .rate. The school  rate was 25.65.  Ernie W.

B.C. Teachers at their annual  convention decided to clastsify  teachers according to their abilities and set up a professional  status.  15 YEARS AGO  The brilliant sunshine of the  past  week  has   brought many  Vancouverites into the area.  A Roberts Creek Improvement  Association meeting gave the  Lower Road1 a great deal of  thought owing to its condition  and the large amount of correspondence the road has created.  Gibsons merchants organize a  meeting for formation Of an organization to get the credit situation under control.  20 YEARS AGO  Black Ball Ferries has been  given the right to use the federal  government wharf as its dock in  Gibsons.  Contracts have been let for  construction of a $75,950 school  at Madeira Park and for $28,875  for renovation and additions to  the Sedhelt school.  Clearing of a right-of-way  from Clowbom Falls power plant  to Sechelt has been started.  Roberts Creek Community association is investigating the  possibility of street lights for  parts of the area.  In this space today, Prime  'Minister Trudeau, speaking on  the subject of Canadian an-ms  sates to the United States during  the Viet Nam war.  He was speaking at Branitford,  Ontario, recently to a high  school audience and found, even  as have I at similar meetings,  that quite a few Canadian young  people question our moral position very seriously. The Prime  Minister's response was one of  the longest and most detailed I  have known him to deliver on  the subject. These are exerpts  from a transcript of a tape:  "A good question, there. Two  questions here, and if you don't  mind, I will just take you up on  one slight part of your question.  "When you say that we sell_  arms to the U.S. which are immediately used in Vietnam, or  something like that, this is not  exact. We do sell something like  $300 million worth of arms every year to the United States.  That's a lo t of dough, $300 million. It is not fair to say, though  it is sometimes difficult to know  the exact fact, to say that a  large percentage of that is used  in Vietnam.  "What we do include in this  very large figure is very costly items of equipment, aircraft  components, sophisticated electronic equipment and so on,  some of" which must be used in  Vietnam; I don't know, we have  no way of tracing through the  American anmy the way in  which all the components end up  in their various regiments. But  the type of stuff we do sell them  could only be used in some very  small proportion in Vietnam.  However, you may say: that  is a secondary matter; even if  it is wot a large proportion, why  do you sell any at all to the  Americans?  "Well, in order to understand,  you will have to understand the  meaning of the second question,  on NATO. NATO is a military;  ���: ���-aMancei in which eadh country |  says:   'If you are attacked; we'*  will come to your defence.' So,"  Norway, England, Belgium and  Canada and so on -sign'i an alliance and they say: If one is attacked, the others will defend it.  And this was built up, as you  know,   after   the   war   because  there was a fear of Russian expansion, amd so on.  "Now in order to make this  alliance effective, and because  we have troops, as I was saying  to the second questioner, in  Western Germany, and in order  that the troops can have unified  commands, we find it more use-  The Labor Scene  A   UNION  OFFICER  CAN'T WIN:  If he talks on a subject, he iis  trying to run things. If he's sil-  ent, he has lost interest in the  organization.  If he's seen at the office, why  doesn't he get out. If he can't  be found, why doesn't he come  around more often.  If he does not agree that the  boss is a skunk, he is a company  man. If he calls the boss a skunk  he is ignorant.  If he is not at home at night,,  he must be out drinking. If he is  at home, he is shirking his duty.  If he doesn't beat his chest  and yell strike, he is a conservative. If he does he is a radical  If he doesn't stop to talk, his  job has gone to his head. Khei  does, that's all he has to do anyway.  If he can't put a member to   ���  work who got into trouble, he is  a poor agent. If he does, that is  what he is paid for.  If he should give someone a  short answer, we'll get him in  the next election. If he tries to  explain something he is playing  politics.  If he gets a good contract,  why didn't he ask for more.  If his suit is pressed, he thinks  he is a big shot, if it isn't he its  unfit for the job.  If he takes a vacation, he has  had one all year anyway.  If he is on the job a short;  time, he is inexperienced. If he's  been on it a long time, there  should be a change.  -���Ford Facts, Local 200,  United Auto   Workers.

"Now, when you say that Canada sells $300 million worth of  arms to the Americans, you also  have to add that we buy about  $300 million worth of arms from  the Americans, in order to have  our peacekeeping operations, in  order to have our Navy, in order  to defend our territory, in order  to have peacekeeping troops in  Cyprus, in the Congo, or in the  Middle East or in Kashmir or  .Wherever it is.  "We have to buy a lot of arms  Now, we could, if we wanted,  say: we are not going to sell,  any arms to the Americans, or  to the Norwegians. . .we will just  buy. How wouHd you get the  money to buy these arms', assuming that you are going to  need some arms in your coun-  ti*y and in your army? How do  you get the money? You get it  by selling some arms of your  own.  ". . .When the French were  fighting in Algeria, we didn't  particularly like it, but they did  not ask us. And we didn't say;:  because you are fighting in Algeria, we will cease to be allied  with you against the Russians.  "They (Americans) do disagree with our policy in Cuba  and they do disagree with our  policy in China. They don't recognize China, we do. But they  don't say to Canada: Lister brother, if you don't do as we say  in Cuba or if you don'it do as we  say in China, we will break up  our alliance. Tlhey say: Your  foreign policy is your foreign  policy, NATO is something else:  we are defending ourselves together against a possible Communist war.  ; Question: "But so far you  have spoken of a peace-keeping  alliance. None of the nations are  actively involved. U.S. is involved in Vietnam, in a war which  doesn't pose a threat to NATO.  So, I think our mutual status  that we have become in effect,  a belligerent nation. I wonder  how neutral we would appear,  say, in the eyes of Washington,  if we were to sell arms to the  North Vietnamese.  Answer: "We are not neutral.  If we are in a defence alliance  with the Americans we are not  neutral; we are aligned1 with the  Americans but not in every one  of their adventures.

We were chosen; we didn't  sort of volunteer and say: here,  we are peaceful guys; choose us  to go to Vietnam. It was the  countries meeting in Geneva  who looked around the world and  said: Well, let's try and get  three countries who can sort of  try and maintain peace in Vietnam. And they chose Canada  and they chose Poland and India.  "Now, this doesn't mean that  these three countries are neutral everywhere in the world.  "We are not.  "We are in NATO. Poland .certainly isn't; it is iri the Warsaw  pact. India is neutral' in terms  of these pacts, but it is certainly  not neutral as regards Pakistan.  It has been carrying on a dispute with Pakistan for the past  SO years now.  ."Tlherefpretnbne of these countries are really neutral and Canada isn't really neutral.

R. BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute. Ottawa  The chief problm in growing  plants inside the average home  is , overcoming the poor light  conditions that prevail. Although  most seedlings will germinate  well, they need ample light once  they have sprouted.  The necessity for extra* light  may be partially overcome by  sowing the seeds 'later than the  normal date, to allow the least  possible time to elapse between  sowing and the date when one  can safely jplace the flats of  transiplnated1 seedlings in an outside cold frame. Electric heating cables located in the cold  frame to provide additional heat  will enable you to use the frame  earlier in the season.  During early growth, annual  seedlings do well in -light provided by fluorescent light panels  erected in the basement where  cooler  coMdiitiohs   prevail   and  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  The A.

Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  Gibsons ���886-2481  space is* less limited. Many of  the fluorescent light units may  be bought completely assembled  and ready to use, or one can often buy a used fixture and fit  this with a proper plug.  Most of these fixtures come  complete with chains so that tiie  fixture can be raised or lowered  according to the height of your  plants. Some means of adjusting  the height oif the plants or the  fixture is a necessity, for most  failures under lights are caused  by low light intensity. This can  only be overcome by locating  the young seedlings two or three  inches below the tubes. This extra light will produce seedlings  that will develop into plants with  strong stems and be much easier  to transplant.  Study the various types of annuals carefully, to avoid unnecessary trouble. Do not sow seeds  of Zinnias, maiugolids, calendulas, amaranthus and other fast-  growing annuals inside the house  before the end of- April. You  will sitill have flowers in ample  time to produce a summer display. Petunias, verbenas, snap-dragons, heliotrope, phlox and  salvias should be sown now for  they are very slow growing.  Damping-ofif is another serious  deterrent to the early growth of  seedlings.  This  is   a  soil-bome  disease that attacks the stem of  the young plant just at soil level  and causes it to keel over and  die. One way to discourage this  devastating disease is to sow the  seeds on a layer of milled sphagnum moss, placed like icing on  the.top of the seedling compost  in the pots.  Insufficient humidity is a serious drawback to germinating  seeds, especially such small  seeds like petunias. To overcome  ..this condition, after sowing the  seeds immerse the pot in water  fo its rim,  and then enclose it  Coast News, April 28, 1971.      3  in a polyethylene bag. It should  not be necessary to water the  seeds again until they have germinated. Remove the bag when  germination has commenced.  In summary, to grow plants  from seeds successfully in the  home, one should be prepared to  build temporary cold frames to  'harden off the seedlings. Sow  the seeds in a pot or pan provided with good grainage and filled  with a well-drained soil mixture  containing V/2 oz. of superphosphate to the bushel of soil mix.  If additional light and growing  space is required, install fluorescent light tubes.

This kind of mail is  a perfectly legitimate way , of  doing business and it is strictly  up to the recipient to decide  whether he wants to pay any attention to this method of selling  or not.  But what do you do when you  receive a credit card you never  asked for, a COD parcel you  never ordered, or a package of  Christmas cards you did not request?  Unsolicited mail is annoying,  and in some cases, it is illegal.  The Consumers' Association of  Canada would like to draw your  attention to some business mailing practices you should know  about.  With the record and book clubs  the most common complaint is  getting merchandise that was  not ordered. In accepting one of  the specials giving a free trial or  a free offer, the first shipment  usually contains a message saying, in effect, "If you don't want  more, send a card saying so ��� if  you would like more, do nothing."  Often the recipient does not  read the enclosed information  thoroughly, and not understanding the conditions, fails to return the card. At other times, it  THERMO-ENGRAVED  by the creators of The Bouquet Invitation Line  THERMO-ENGRAVING is rich, raised lettering. .  with the luxurious distinction of fine craftsmanship  ���but costs about half as much as you'd expect...  and is ready within a week. .*'  Many other styles from which to choose.

Put them together and you  come up with sizzlers.  Shorts are going everywhere  in all temperatures ��� on the  long-and-lean, the not-so-_ong  and not-so-lean, and every conceivable shape of a teen. And  you can find them in everything  frOm frayed denims and buckskins to pale panne velvets and  embroidered organzas.  Looks run from peasant to Victorian pao-ior variety. Favorite  footwear is usually a boot or a  platform sandal, but don't ibe  surprised to see some young  girl trip out in a pump and look  fabulous. The young have a  knack for pulling the short story  together.  Sometimes shorts turn to  skorts ��� micro-miniskirts so micro that they must be worn  with shorts under them Intended  for young fashion fillies only.

A survivor  in the household - often accepts  the -goods believing that they  were actually ordered by the deceased before death. It is against  the law to send any article by  COD which has not been ordered  or requested. ~  As far as credit cards are concerned, there is nothing illegal  about sending unsolicited credit  cards through the'mail although  Consumers' Association of Can-,  ada would like to see the practice made illegal. It is entirely  up to you to decide if you want  to keep and use the card, 'but if  you do not want it, be on the  safe side and destroy the card  so that no one else can use it.  You should note an important  condition that almost invariably  accompanies each card that goes  something like this: "The card  holder named hereon agrees to  pay for all purchases made by  any person using tliis card until  the company has received written notice of its loss or theft."  Consumers' Association of Can  ada feel very "strongly about this  matter of unsolicited credit  cards and advise returning the  mutilated card to the sender  with a letter of protest against  this method of promotion.  Items such as Christmas seals  key tag services or Easter seals  are sent with a request for a donation or with a definite charge  for the item. However, this is  viewed as a generally acceptable  method of raising funds for charitable purposes and very seldom  results in a complaint.  Greeting cards mailed to the  home are usually accompanied  with a request for payment of a  stated sum and suggesting that  the money sent will benefit handicapped persons. The post office now requires that a notice  be included with the shipment  stating that you do not have to  pay the return postage and are  under under no legal obligation  either to purchase the cards or  to return them.  From the individual consumer's point of view, the Post Office Act states that once an article is posted it becomes the  property of the addressee. How-'  ever, any individual has the pri-.  vilege   of   refusing   mail.   Just  mark it 'refused,'  sign it.  and  return   it   to   the   Post   Office  where it will be disposed of in  accordance with  postal regulations. It is entirely up to the consumer   to   decide   whether   he  should keep it or return unsolicited material.' In your own best  interest,  however,   it  would be  wise to return the  material to  the Post Office. Here are a few  important points to keep in mind  when   dealing   with   unsolicited  mail:  ���Read all offers carefully.  ���Understand the conditions of  acceptance   of   any   unsolicited  proposition.  ���You are not required to pay  for unordered merchandise.  ���It is against the law to send  unordered merchandise COD.  ���Check all invoices carefully.  ���If you do not wish to retain  unsolicited material, mark it refused and return it to the post  office.  ���Report any suspected misuse  oi the mails to the post office department, Ottawa.  FIRST WATER SKIERS?  Whirligig beetles are fun to  watch as they glide over the surface of our ponds and streams.  If a .pebble is tossed among  them, they race albout at high  speed in a mad frenzy of circles,  loops and zig-zags*. When pursued, they dive_ to the bottom  and hide. Whirligigs are oval,  flattened and black with a metallic sheen and range from a  quarter to half an inch in length.  They use their front legs for  holding mosquitoes, midges and  other prey while the second and  third  pairs   of legs   are short,  broad paddles. Their eyes are  one of their most interesting  features. They are divided into  7two parts, one half keeping a  lookout for enemies: overhead  and the other for attacks from  below. Some species give off a  protective milky fluid with an  odor like apple seeds.  Have you rare sheets of music?

Enabling  the committee1 to carry on with  the feasibility study and others,  it was arranged to sell $5 pre-  numbered certificates which, if  the project should come into being, would be credited towards  the first years' membership fee.  The source of revenue, coupled1  with outright donations1, has given a total income of approximately $2,850 to date. Total expenditure has been $1,250 leaving a balance at Feb. 1 of $1,600  Architect's fees cost $1,250 and  a mail survey $150.  After the committee received  all* the feedbacks froon the public through the surveys and  other means, a priority of recreation requirements was established. This was followed by special meetings with emphasis on  the various construction stages,  eliminating possible, unnecessary  expenses during future expansion programs. It was based on  this that it was decided to .for-"'  muillate essential facilities for development of phase one, as follows:  Combination standard ice arena and curling. During off-season, this area can be used for  many recreation purposes, roller skating, lacrosse, tennis,  conventions, wrestling, boxing  and exhibits.  A mezzanine auditorium to  seat approximately 500 people.  Said area can be divided up in  different rooms. Facilities will  be made available for our senior citizens; '  Development of picnic grounds  and other demanding facilities.  The project status to date includes successful negotiations  with the provincial lands de*-  partment for approximately 116  acres of prime land for recreation purposes. Please take time  and have a look at this property  with the two beautiful creeks  flowing through, and the excellent stand of ti_n|ber.  The Sunshine Coast Lions club  and B.C. Hydro personnel have  slashed . out7survey lines to be  followed immediately by the topographical survey, with the as-  sistance of four students from  Elphinstone Secondary school.  Further negotiations are required with professional recreational^ personnel, local gov-  efnhieht'.'"'"arid Organizations before the final cost figures for  the proposals can officially be  announced. On behallf of the  committee, I wish to take this  -opportunity7 to thank all concerned who have, in one way or  another, participated in this important project. I am sure that,  through further cor operation,  sound planning, efficient and effective negotiations, we can all  enjoy the long-awaited and urgently needed^ recreation facilities in the not too distant future.  Over 30 meetings have been  held since 1968, with an average  participation of 10 memibers at  all times. Every meeting is supported by proper minutes. All  actions taken by this coimmittee  to date, and every' statement  made in this report, can be ful_y  substantiated by proper documentation.  Inspection for  Mallorn Tree  Renewal oif the business license for the Legal Front Mallorn Tree premises in Sedhelt  has been held up pending the  result of an inspection by building and health inspectors.  The problem came before Sechelt's council at its second  meeting in the month on April  21. This case has been longstanding and the new inspection  will be made by the building  inspector for the village and a  health inspector from Coast-  Garibaldi Health Unit. The results of this inspection will be  turned over to the owner of the  property, and Sechelt's council.  Action beyond this point will  depend on what the report to  council will state. If need be  council would ciall a; special  meeting to approve the business license.  Have you rare sheets of music?

The menace as I see it consists of a car stopping to pick  someone up causing following  traffic to pass, which in certain  instances might cause a car to  cross the divider line. TUiis is  understandably dangerous but  could be remedied rapidly and  easily at the root of the problem, physical space, but unfortunately is to. be dealt with  through police action and impos  ing restrictions on people.

A pull-out  area could be constructed cheaply and easily and. woiuld surely  ease congestion on an aUready  overtaxed ferry and highway  system. It is no solution to a  problem when these simple physical remedies are ignored in favor of social con-rod. Bicycling  and hitching are rapidly becoming important factors in efforts  to save the environment.  Unless something is done to  promote these life saving means  of transportation, we will end  up with an automoibile choked,,  noisy and polluted suburb suffering from the common and unenlightened dependence on the  automobile. I urge concerned  citizens to write the RCMP,  Gibsons, urging construction of  a pull-out area near the ferry  terminal. Producing less ferry  traffic and allowing more people  lo travel without clogging the  air with noise and fumes seems  a far imlore attractive possibility than extending police action  to stop hitchJhikin(g.  ���KEN  DALGLEISH,  Roberts Creek.  #_���  UG'S  APPLIANCES  Speed Queen  Safes & Service  A Complete Slock of Parts  Specializing in Speed Queen Service  Gibsons  Phone 886-7244 days; after 6 886-7560  Editor: On April 14 I lost the  diamond out of my engagement  ring on the Powell River bus  that leaves Vancouver at 6:15.  1 gave the driver my name  and address.

I now discfover he has  a mistress1. She can't get anything can she?  Answer: She sure can. A will  may be changed at any time. If  your husband dies first his half  interest in the land would go to  you despite anything the will  say si. He could, however, have  easily converted the joint tenancy to a tenancy-inKMmmon with-;  out your signature or knowledge  and in this case his half would  go to the beneficiary under his  will (subject to you successfully  attacking the will).  Q.: My wife ran off with another man. I have a will in her  favor. I know I can change this  but we own land in joint tenancy  and I have been told that she  will get my half anyway.  ''-��� A.:';,Don't listen to that. Go to  ���a lawyer. Draw a new will cutting your wife out. Deed! your  half interest to. the lawyer. This  will break the jointure and convert it to a tenancy-in-conumon.  Your half will1 then go to your  beneficiary. The lawyer will  deed his half back to you and  register both deeds in the Land  Registry Office at the same  time.  Your wife, however, may die  first and if yau act as above,  you won't inherit her half. Your  relative ages and states of health  would have to be considered.  She may be contemplating the  same thing. Seek your lawyer's  advice.

Bus. 886-2714; Res. 886-7567  (Copyright)  Q.: I searched in the Land  Registry Office .and found that  my husband and I are listed as  joint tenants but he mortgaged  his half. As a surviving joint  tenant, I understand I will get  his half when he dies. The mortgage now is very small.  A.: This is a good example  of why only a lawyer should do  a land registry search, if your  husband has made a will in favor of someone else they will inherit his half. A mortgage breaks  the jointure, converts it from  a joint tenancy to a. tenancy-in-  common, despite what the misleading land registry records  show.  Q.: I am separating from my  hiu'sjband. We own land jointly  and I want it left that way. He  can't mortgage any portion of it  without my signature can he?  A.: Yes ������ that is to say he  may mortgage his undivided  half interest. You can't be forced to pay such a mortgage but  the mortgagee could start a  foreclosure action and the land  could be ordered sold by. the  courts and you would get half  the proceeds and' the other half  would ibe used to pay off the  mortgage, any excess going to  your husband.
