Array Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Number 22, March 24,  1971  10c per copy  Improved liaison sought  r Declaring the liaison between  the Regional District board and  Sechelt council was not as good  as it should be, Aid. Joe Benner  maintained that the Regional  board should have explained the  .land tax to council by letter.  Thiis, would have enabled couh-  'cil .to-handle many of the cocm-  plaihtsreceived from the public.  $l0e. was of the opinion the Re-  ^ortal Dastriot reports back to  doujicil i in the past had been  scanty and that council knew lit  tle about what was going on.  Aid. Benner urged council to  write to Victoria for legal advice  as to whether the Regional board  was noting correctly. He asked  whether sucn a tax could be imposed before promised work on  the Sechelt system had been  completed.  The subject came before council when Mayor Will-am Swain,  representative for Sechelt on the  Regional board, informed council of activities at the last Re  gional b o a r d meeting. He  thought that perhaps the water  rate should be raised and the  land tax reduced. The mayor explained that the $40 land tax  was to cover improvements and  aiso to pay for the reservoir  from which Sechelt gets its"water.  Clerk Ted Ray nor said that Sechelt was included in the - Regional Board's! Letters Patent including water and the Regional  District determines its money  requirements.

Skiing conditions were excellent  with up to 15 feet of snow on  the ground. Ski club members  expect to be skiing until June.  The ski club has been trying  to get the provinlcial government to take over and repair the  logging road, , which is badly  washed out through one section,  and difficult to; negotiate even  with the sho-cat. They, have received frpni the gover-Mnent a  special use peranit covering 90  Hearing aid  acres on which they are skiing  at present, and would like better access available.  The day was only slightly marred by two mishaps, one involving Alderman Dixon, wiho has  not been on sMs for some years'.  He fortunately managed to do no  more than lose a little skin off  his nose when* he landed in the  snow face first. A more serious  accident occurred on the way  down the mountain when Wayne  Grejggain came^pyfer a slight  rise at a fair r|;te ;pf speed and  collided w-tpsaA^immp.

Purpose of the bill according to  Hon. Isabel Dawson, who did a  considerable amount of work on  i't, is' to regulate the practice of  hearing aid dealers and corisul-  tantSi to provide for registraitiom,  to discipline? members and::,' to  penalize those persons practicing withpiit registration.  The measure1 calls for a board  to be set up with regitliatory  powers to examdne, license and  prohibit wherever necessary.  There are penalty clauses' included. The measure becomes  law when signed by the lieutenant-governor.  Elect Claussen  Mackenzie New Democratic  Party constituency association  annual meeting in Powell River  Dwight Hall Saturday elected  Harry Claussen of Powell River  as president, Ken Barker, Gibsons, vice-president; Don Pear-  sail, Gibsons, secretary; Stuart  Lambert, Powell River, treasurer and Don Lockstead, Vananda,  provincial council delegate..  The annual meeting went on  record-in support of the B.C.  Teachers Federation fight for  better pensions for retired teachers.  Hon: Isabel Dawson has ^announced that Powell River would  be included in the expansion".of  mental health care services and  programs pb a regional basis. V  Powell River would come under the: director of the* Mental"  Health centre at' (IkMirtenay. A  social worker has been appointed and should take up duties  around March 18. This appoint-';  ment will come under the department of rehabilitation and  social improvement and is an  addition to the social worker for  the mental health branch.  At last week's meeting of the  district school board the possible  termination of mental health travelling clinic visits was mentioned. A summary of the visits  was presented which included 32  cases, pre-school, school and  adult cases with, one case having  received seven visits and others  grading to one visit only.  The report, prepared by P. E.  Slinn, supervisor of elementary  insitrucitiion, was made with the  object of alerting the school  board to possible termination of  the clinic's services.  Idea dropped!  Bylaw control of store shopping hours has been jettisoned  by Sechelt's municipal council.  This was done at Wednesday  night's meeting last week when  Aid. Ben Lang reported the result of a poll among merchants.  He said that out of 39 checked  nine were in favor, and 30 opposed to any regulation.  Said Mayor William Swain:  "According to that they don't  want it;" Some merchants, said  there were stores just beyond  the village borders over which  council had no control. Aid. Joe  Benner promptly moved that the  matter be tabled.  GODDARD CHAIRMAN  Aid. Ken Goddard of Gibsons  has been named chairman of the  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit  board. His election occurred at  last week's meeting of the health  unit in Squamish. The next meeting wMl be held in Gibsons in  June.  YOUNGEST SKIER up tine mouri  tain.la^.Sunday was-six-year-old  Gail Wolverton,'daughter of Mr  ���" and Mrs. "'Lorhe Wolverton' of  Langdale. The newly installed  rope tow posed no probliems to  her, and she seemed to be the  most frequent user during "the  afternoon. When it came time to  go home, she ware not going to  ridef the siio-cat down, but insisted on skiing down the road  with her father.  Guides enrolled  Previous to a Thinking Day  service late in February, five  girls were enrolled in the 2nd  Gibsons Guide Company, Cindy  Beaudry; Lynn Wheeler, Janet  Dupuis, Janet MacKay and Colleen Hoops. On the same evening, a Cooker's badge was awarded to Vaiima Dupuis. a Hostess badge to Barbara Meredith,  Collectors -badges to Heather  ���Reid and Rebecca McKinnon  and Geraldine Fyles received  her Swimmers badge.  Summer swimming came ear-  . ly for 19 girls from' the 2nd Company on March 13. The girls, together with leaders Mrs. E. Mac  Kay and Mrs. J. Smethurst, arrived at Lord Jim's Lodge at  10:15 a.m. and, accompanied by  life guards Denise littlejohn  and Gloria Fyles. jumped wbole-  heartedilly into the pool. The sun  shone brightly throughout their  swim, sauna,, lunch and hike and.  then lured them all back to the  pool before their departure at  3:15 p.m. These girls and others  like them know how lucky they  are to have the leaders! to make  trips like this possible.  Civic gallery  Gibsons municipal hall council chamber now' contains pictures of four of council's chairmen, covering the years from  1952 to 1969. .'���-..���-  The oldest is that of Chairman  James Drummond who served  from 1952 to 1956. Next comes  Chairman A. E., Ritchey, covering the period from 1956 to 1965.  Chairman Wes Hodgson served  from 1965 to 1967 and- Chairman  Fred Feeney who became Gibsons first mayor, serving in 1968  and 1969. It was on Jan. 1, 1969  that chairmen were delegated as  mayors.  7 ;:Jt7wasn't aU sore feet on the  teachers' picket line on Friday.  There was coffee and doughnuts  and a friendly greeting brought  (by Mrs. Cloe Day, a retired Elphinstone  instructor,  to pickets  -in the Gibsons-Sechelt-Langdale  areas.  ��� , The one-day teachers' strike  against the provincial government brought" out some 23;000  teachers in the province. The  strike was to protest the inadequate pensions presently provided to retired teachers. Locally,  better than 98% of the teachers  honored the strike call and  marched quietly with their placards in front of local schools1, a  Sechelt    Teachers    Association  -press release said. ���.:.,'��������  Highlights of the teachers' activities during the day included  the picket duty, a public rally  in Sechelt, and distribution of  information leaflets in the community.  The public rally held in the  Sfechelt Legion Hall drew close  of  ^tV 100 teachers" and:  4. the. public. Mr. Stan Trueanah;  a former teacher at Elphinstone,  told the teachers in the audience, "It is a wonderful thing  you aire doing today, and it is  not for yourselves, but for the  teachers already retired. Speaking for retired' teachers^ I would  iMfce to thank you: all from the  bottom of my heart."  Strong support and greetings  to the association were brought  by Mr. Fred Corley, president of  Local 297, Pulp and Sulphite[Union, and executive member of  the B.C. Federation of Labor. He  said Local 297 had passed a  strong resolution pledging sup-  iport to "both facets of your  -fight ��� your struggle for a better pension deal and the government's threat to enact open shop  clauses against the BCTF." He  warned of the possibility that the  attack on the teachers' union  shop was "but the opening  wedge in an attempt to make  B.C. an open shop province and  that the. unity of all those so  threatened could stop it."  Mr. Bill Allester, representative from the BCTF, in remarks  to the rally, reviewed the pension fight. He told of ten years  For men too!  What the well-dressed man  will look like will be a part of  the Centenmd/ai '71 Port Mellon  Hospital Auxiliary's fashion  show Monday, March 29 starting  at.8 p.m. in Pdrt Mellon's Community Hall.  The well-dressed man will be  secondary to the main theme,  that of the latest in spring and  summer wear for those who aspire to be the well-dressed woman;  There will also be a glamorous  display of furs which should  tickle the fancy of those who are  partial to that which is luxurious. There will be refreshments  and* during the intermission  there will be music by the Backwoods Brass.  MENTIONED ON CBC  "3>urrng a recent CBC Second  50's show which dwells on events  among pensioners the Coast  News story coverirug the 971th  birthday of Mr. Fred Kirkham  of Gibsons was read to whicih  were added congratulations for  Mr.   Kirkham   from   the   CBC  of fruit'less attempts to get the  government to negotiate with the  teachers. Failure brought the  BCTF to the striking point.  Mrs. Eileen Glassford and  Mrs. Cloe Day, both retired  teachers, thanked them for their  efforts. 7  Mr. John Burnside, president  of the STA stated at the end of  the day's activities, "The strike  A Coast News feature  was a success. Pickets, picket  captains, and STA executive  functioned smoothly in a manner  that did honor to teachers in the  district. The provincial government must now act to improve  the pensions of those teachers  already retired."  And, in the midst of all this,  the kids had a warm spring holiday!  iJJ*M_B_pi*w_��*P"����,*1"fl��f����^^  Teachers must pay, too!  School boards in B.C. will have  to pay $2 million a year to the  federal government as employers' premiums for unemployment insurance for teachers, and  the money will have to come  from taxes raised for education  in the province.  Boards must pay $86.63 a year  for each of the province's 23,000  teachers ���-: a total premium of  $1,999,249. Teachers will pay  their own premiums.  The federal government's new  unemployment insurance act,  which added teachers to the list  of contributors, was given first  reading March 10. The bill is  expected to get second reading,  go through committee study and  be passed on April 1 ��� April'  Fool's Day. Jim Killeen, presi-  . dent of the B.C. Teachers' Federation, said his organization is  opposed to the new legislation.  Killeen said that a particularly frightening aspect of the legislation was that the federal  government is now taking over  many of the decisions in education, a field exclusively that of  the provinces under the BNA  Act.  Among them. Section 58 transfers to the federal1 government  the decision on whether a teacher has been justly or unjustly  fired from his job and gives the  federal authority the responsibility to define a working day or  working week for teachers and  to determine the beginning and  end of a stoppage of work.  Under Section 58, the federal  government will rule when an interruption of earnings occurs,  thus defining the length of the  school year.  Section 41 gives the federal  government the authority to decide if a teacher was justified in  quitting his- job or if a school  board was justified in firing a  teacher. ���  If a teacher loses his job because of a labor dispute, he will  not receive benefits until the  labor dispute is ended, according to Section 44.  Ambulance plan  An ambulance service for Gibsons is now under study by  members of council. The subject  came up at council's last meeting when Cunningham's Ambulance service at Halfmoon Bay  offered to supply the village  with a service at $1 per head of  population.  Aldermen argued that a Halfmoon Bay ambulance was quite  a distance from Gibsons and  could not see how it would be  effective. Cunningham's are now  servicing Seohelt at a cost of  $600 through an arrangement  with council. Discussion ended  with the dedision of Gibsons  council to look into the matter.  All municipal councils receive a  grant for ambuliance service  from the provincial government.  Tt amounts to an approximate $1  per head of population. 2     Coast News, March 24, 1971.

A communication gap  Lack of communication leads to the 'Spread of misinformation  and judging from the temper of the Sunshine Coast populace today lack of com)municatiio_i appears to be a major .factor.  Communication is achieved by minds getting together and absorbing ideas and facts. This appears to be the basis for a spread  night now of ratepayers associations throughout the entire com-  muniity. Soime are already organized and others are on their way.  To regard lack of informiation as a ratepayer complaint solely  is not the whole story. Municipal councils also complain of being  left high and dry on some subjects. However who is to blame will  not be questioned here.  There are times when people complain of being without required information when that same information has received considerable press coverage. More ratepayer organizations are needed to be a sounding board for complaints of the area. Such organizations can also help the author-ties who are the ibuitt of ratepayer complaints.  There is unrest amongst taxpayers generally in the Regional  District and also in the two municipalities. It would be a good point  to make to hope that virile ratepayer organizations are in the off-  ang, provided they are not controlled by a few hlotheads wiho usually kill an organization. So here's to bigger and better ratepayer  organizations on the Sunshine Coast. We need them!  Help for students!  Federal government summer youth program�� as announced in  the house of commons last week will provide for a wide range of  student employment and activity.. Its scope will Ibe limited only  by the 'imagination of young people themselves', citizens' groups and  voluntary organizations. Of the $21,000,000 for student employment,  almost $15,000,000 will be made available in federal grants to those  who develop useful and creative projects for the employment and  participation of youth during summer months. Students in particular are expected to develop exciting and innovative proposals in  such areas as urban re-development and cle-aira-up caimpaigns, attitude research surveys and pollution probes.  Project proposals will be welcomed 'from some 4,000 to 5,000  local voluntary agencies across the country. Recreation associations, social agencies, citizens' groups and others interested in developing summer jobs and activities for youth are encouraged to  apply. Special consideration will be given to projects set in high  unemployment areas.  Applications should be made immediately to Opportunities for  Youth, department of the secretary of state. Applications should  state purpose of project, duration (projects must be completed1 by  September 30, 1971), number of people to be involved, budget and  objectives to be achieved. Forms and guides will soon be available  at Canada Manpower Centres, Students' Employment Centres and  Citizenship offices of the department of the secretary of state.

COAST NEWS  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  At an area water comimittee  meeting in Gibsons Health Centre, Martin Dayton, professional  engineer, estimated a minimum  Of $825,000 would be required to  set up a water district system  based on six inch piping.  William Price at a Gibsons  Channber of Commerce meeting  maintained that there would  have to be a change of political  climate before this area would  receive attention as regards a  domestic water system.  Expansion of Gibsons municipal boundaries is now a live topic at council meetings.  10 YEARS AGO  Work has started on a $100,000  shopping centre next to Super-  Valu store on Sunshine Coast  Highway.  Discussions are underway by  Gibsons council for the numbering of houses within the village.  The annual Pender Harbour  Board of Trade Smorgasbord attracted 235 people. Maurice Fin-  nerty, president of the B.C.  Chamber of Commerce was the  speaker.  15 YEARS AGO  flfrie school district budget for  1956 totals $405,015, an increase  oif $57,995 over last year. Teacher salaries absorbed $201,582.  Parker's Hardware store in  Sechelt has been renovated and  will re-open as a Marshall Wells  store.  Back in 1948 there were 70 tele  phone subscribers in the Gibsons  system. Today there are 507.  20 YEARS AGO  Mr. R. Paradis, a former Sorg  company stadif member will be  the resident manager at Port  Mellon, Canadian Forest Products' newly purchased mill.  The legislative private bills  committee now has under consideration the Black Ball proposal for a ferry service from Horse  shoe Bay to Gibsons.  Roberts Creek Improvement  association held a meeting to  discuss the lack of a proper burial ground.  The provincial library Development Comimission in the eyes  of a good many 'librarians would  kill the voluntary effort now being put into public libraries, and  opposition is growing against it.  Gibsons Library chairman,  Jules Mai-nil in his last three annual reports on Gibsons library  operation has spoken out 'against  it. In his report for 1969 he said:  "New provincial policy decisions shall have an important  bearing on this library. Under  the Library Development Commission Quantitative 'Standards  regulations some of our arrangements and methods wiil  probably have to be changed1:  We may have to pay some personnel; we may have to increase our public and working  space, and after 1970, to qualify  for a provincial grant, the library shall have to receive a  minimum of $1,000 from the  municipality.  "These are basic changes and  will alter the structure of our  library and Library Association.  I am not in complete accord  with these policies but they are  government policies." -,  Each year since then he has  voiced his opposition to the government program for libraries.  At a Gibsons council meeting  three weeks ago the Burns Lake  Library society sought the aid  of Gibsons to oppose the Library  Development Commission's plan.  Burns Lake council1 asked for  support for its move to seek post  ponement of the Provincial Library Commission's cut off date  of April 1 on ifinancial situations  of libraries. The Bums TLake  people are in the throes of building library premises and would  not know their position for about  two years.  At last week's Gibsons council  meeting the following letter  came from the Penticton Public  Library board along with the  submission printed above:  "Attached is a copy of a submission to the Library Development Comimiission of British Columbia on behalf of the Penticton Public Library Board, protesting the ComaniiSiSion's policy  of eliminating grants to Munich  pal Public Libraries and Public  Library Associations in  British  Columbia effective April 1, 1972.  As this is a matter of considerable importance to all Municipal  Public Libraries, Public Library  Associations,    and    municipal  councils in British Columhiaj we  ask for your support of this submission by letter, delegation or  submission to the Library Development Commission.  ���G. E. Lang, Chairman,  Penticton Public Library board  Gibsons council at its meeting  on Tuesday last week decided to  support the Penticton submission " ��� ��� ���>  On July 7, 1970, a bulletin titled Provincial Aid for Public  Libraries was published by the  Library Development Commission of British Columbia which  deals with the granting of funds  to municipal public 'libraries and  ���public library associations.  There are several points discussed in this bulletin that are of  interest to all municipal public  'libraries and public library associations in British Columbia,  the first being money for public  library grants comes from a special legis'liative appropriation.  Some of this is allocated to various fixed com-Witments, the rest  is divided among the municipally  and regionally organized libraries. The basis of division is still  the population served by each library or library system.  The bulletin goes on to point  out that adjustments are made  for each library which reflects  that library's ability to pay and  its performance. We suggest that  this is a fair method of distribution of funds to benefit all library users in British Columbia.  In this manner, in the year 1969,  $444,130 was distributed to libraries in British Columbia with  a total service area population  of 1,752.740 persons. Of this amount $281,478 was granted to mu-  SECHELT JEWELLERS  MARCH SPECIAL  20?/0 OFF  ALL RING RETIPPINGS  885-2421  nicipal public libraries, $44,845  was granted to public library associations and $117,807 was  granted to regional libraries.  Another point that was emphasized is that provincial aid  should be placed where it will  do the most good for the greatest number. It is clear, from  the 1969 British Columbia Public Libraries Statistics*, that the  majority of the population are  serviced by municipal public libraries (984,852 persons) as compared to 532,590 serviced by regional libraries and 235,298 serviced by public library associations. With these facts in mind-  it is incomprehensible that the  Library Development Commission should adopt the following  policy in the aforementioned bulletin which is contrary to the  above two points:  On and after the first day  of April, 1972, any municipal  public library or public library association whose municipality, electoral area or  school district ;is in a position to become .part of a  larger unit of service and  has not joined the larger unit  shall be ineligible for provincial' aid under the Public  Libraries Act.  The term "larger unit of service" as defined in Public Li^  braries in British Columbia by  Rose Vain stein1 means regional  libraries, and in that publication  it is indicated that a planned  network of regional library districts spanning the entire province leaves no area which is  not in a position to become part  of the la-nger unit of service. In  other words, unless all libraries  in British Columbia which are  not now members of a regional  library become such, they will  no longer be eligible for financial assistance from the Government of the Province of British'  Columibia.  This in effect means that using 1969 statistics, 1,220,150 persons in British Columbia presently serviced by municipal  public libraries and public library associations would not have  received provincially subsidized  service while 532,590 persons  would.  It has been proven that not all  ���Mbraries in British Columbia  wish to be part of a regional library. This was evidenced when  the electors of the City of Penticton opted out of the Okanagan  Regional Library in 1969. Could  it be that this policy js a method  to force regional libraries' upon  people who democratically have .  rejected them?  Communities in British Columbia, serviced by mundc'pal public libraries or puiblic 'library associations, have made free and  voiluntary decisions to be serviced in this manner. We feel that  to force these communities into  a regional library network is  both inequitable and undemocratic. We therefore feel that the  adoption of this policy is discriminatory against all persons  in British Columbia who are not  now members of regional libraries and that the adoption of this  policy does not seem to follow  democratic practice when a majority of taxpayers are penalized  as a result of this action.  The government of British Columbia has been active in promoting the rights of its citizens,  and has. displayed that awareness in the enactment of the Human Rights Act in 1969. This dis  criminatory'library policy would  "seem to be contrary to the principles of the Human Rights Act  and therefore contrary to the  principles of the government of  British Columbia.  We ask, in all sincerity, that  immediate action be taken to  cancel this policy in order that  all persons in British Columbia  may receive equal consideration  from their government with regard to library service.

The work was the raising of the  needed $1500 or more to buy  meals, charter buses, and pay  admissions to some of the museums and other centres* of interest, and the worth was the  great feeling of accomplishment  and general satis-aetion that every, pupil had at the conclusion  of the project..  It was a tight schedule the pupils and teachers made to cover every minute of the excursion. Letters of inquiry about  ~ places to visit had been sent  out by the half-dozen weeks before and pupils had studded brochures and discussed the merits  of each place of interest. Long  before they got on the chartered  bus for Victoria each pupil had  ���a clear blueprint of his part of  the excursion in his mind. Full  as it was, the schedule was  maintained except for the visit  to Sealand, closed for unexpected repairs.  The program day by day was:  Tuesday after arrival: 3 p.m.,  Crystal Gardens; 5 MacKenzie  school to meet hosts; 6 Dinner  at the Peking House; 7, Visit a  Chinese school and temple; 8,  Hockey game at Arena and at  10:30  to billets.  Wednesday: 9:15 a_m., City  Hall to present letter from Gibsons Mayor Peterson; 10:15, visit Legislative buildings' and provincial . museum: 11:30, lunch  igciests of Mrs. Dawson; 1 p.m.,  Choice of places to visit; 4, Government House; 5:30,. dinner at  caifeteria, Douglas Building; 6:30  Wax Museum and 8, meet pupil  hosts at -MacKenzie Elementary  ' School.  Thursday: 9 a.m.. Maritime  Forces Dockyard; 11. small  group to CHEK-TV, and 1 p.m.,  Bus moves to Swartz Bay for  journey home.  ���'.������ Events* a-ppealed to the children- in different���i ways but al-  most-withLout e.xc<^^onfethe Wax  '^liseum arid Government House  were the most vivid experiences.  Arid in the Wax Museum1, not the  Royal family in resplendent costume, nor Mr. Trudeau, nor the  fairy characters from Wait Disney movies, but the Chamber of  Horrors won the greatest attention. "Not creepy, but fun," said  one   youngster.   "There  was  a  man   hanging   on   a   big   hook  which went in his back and came  out his stomach." "The figures'  eyes really looked at you; I had  a nightmare that wight."  Of Government House, a girl  wrote,   "flowers,   brown   chair,  NEVENS RADIO & TV  DEALER   FOR  PHILIPS  ZENITH  FLEETWOOD  ADMIRAL  RUGS & FURNITURE  SALES & SERVICE  To all Makes  Phone 886-2280  big candles, red carpet, lots of  chandeliers, lots of stairs, cakes  cookies and pop, gold chairs,  wood pictures, gold curtains,  waxed floors." Another expressed the reactions of all the girls  to the washroom*. ".. .had a  powder room and all the girls  went to try the powder and hand  lotion. There were fancy stools  to sit on. When we told the boys  they said theirs was* just as big  amd powder was no good anyway." "I bad five bottles of pop  that the lady with white gtoves  opened for me." "I shakes the  government's hand and got his  autograph too."  Crystal Gardens: "The water  was blue and chlorine in it which  hurt, my eyes. There is also  about 3 lifeguards in case any  one drowns. They can pull him  oiut and send for his folks."  The Legislature: "Some of us  talked to the page boys. Some  talked to Mr. Gaiglardi in the  hall. Premier Bennett waved to  us when his car had to stop to  let us walk across the streelt.  Ricky Delong's uncle visited us  at dinner time. We got his autograph because he is a member  of the Legislature. Frank Calder  talked to us. He is an Indian  like me."  The Hockey game: "I sure  liked the noise the puck made  hitting the boards." "Scott Mun-  ro (Victoria Cougars) gave me  a curved hockey stick and a  puck." "The referee fell and hit  his head on the ice. The crowed  laugh at him. He got up and bow  to the crowd."  Navy base: :"I liked the boms  and torpedoes.:? "I liked it best  because I felt at home by the  water." "The firefighters were  good. We breathed something  five, times in a mask and it made  our voices squeaky. A navy of-  ficer asked if we were from Sechelt village. He said he will be  there this summer in a navy  boat. They are fitting up the  Beaver so's it can visit places  in  Centennial Year."  All the other places received  some mention by several pupils,  and many felt they made new  friends at their hosts' homes.  -Qne.said, "I must have liked my  billet very much, because when  I came home I missed them."  "I think it was good for us to  go on trip like that because we  Nurse courses  A series of three refresher  courses for graduate nurses who  have been out of the nursing  field and wish to return to ac  live practice are being sponsored by the Registered Nurses' Association of British Columbia.

The present century has  seen  many   changes.   Some   of  these  are  for  the  better,  and  some for the worse. Some things  are improved, and others fail to  make this world a better place  to live in. Yet through them all  one sees the efforts of mankind  to better his living  conditions;  and  often making them  worse  instead/This is why there is so  much concern about the matter  of pollution. While endeavouring  to improve productivity of the  earth man is busy polluting it in  countless ways.    -  Through all these things, however, there are some things that  never change. There is the need  of the human heart for understanding. There is mankind's  need for deliverance from sin  and vice. There is the need of  the world for equity and peace  instead of greed and warfare,  and hunger and poverty. If this  world is going to be a better  P-iace to live in man needs the  help of a higher power outside of  himself. He needs the help of  God.  Two thousand years ago Jesus  the Son of God, came to this  world to save mankind from sin.  He rose from death as the great  Conquerer of this power which  eventually engulfs every human  being. Jesus Christ came that  we might possess abundant and  eternal life. More than this grea!1  truth is the fact that He never  changes: Jesus Christ is the  same yesterday, today, and for  ever. He is eternal and unaffected by time. He can satisfy the  needs of every heart. He frees  all who trust in Him from the  power and guilt Of sin, and gives  them new life instead. He never  fails those who rest their faith  in Him. He is the changeless1  One.  Why not yield your life to His  control, and prove His power, to  set you free from sin, and satisfy all your needs? Jesus never  fails. ��� Rev. B. J. With.

Letters fo Editor  Editor: I should like to disagree with your editorial(?) in  Which you took to task people  who list their Sechelt properties  with mainland realtors. I live in  a smalltown also, Port Moody,  and realize how parochial and  inflexible local people can become when referring to "those  guys from the city." Still your  responsibility to inform properly shouldn't cease to be intelligent when the last ferry has left  on Sunday night. I should think  that the editor of a newspaper  would have to be a reasonably  well read person and would analyze the petulance of the local  strawchewers for what it is,  mere envy.  As a realtor I have two listings currently, close to Selma  Park. They had been listed for  six months with a-Sechelt realtor and there were three properties at that time when I listed  them. Two weeks after I took the  listings one of the properties sold  at full price. Draw your own  conclusions please.  I realize that the local realtors advertise in your newspaper  and you must protect them. But  at the expense of misinforming  your readers?  Yours for more understanding.  ���BURT FERGUSON,  Port Moody, B.C.  (See two other letters on the  same subject on Page 9.)  E-len Chamberlin gave her Sunshine report.

SS6-9303 ST.PIERRE, MP  Dear Mayor Walter Peterson  of Gibsons:  May I place before your council and, through them, to the  community, a matter which I  think deserves the attention of  many interested citizens of Coast  Chiicotin.  As. you know, great numbers  of young people will pour onto  the Canadian labor market this  summer. As yoiu might not know,  the size of the Canadian problem in this respect is almost unique in the Western World. Our  post war birth rate exceeded  those of any similar nations.  Between now and 1985, the Canadian labor force will increase  by more than the total labor  force of Sweden, and most of  this increase will be the result Of  our post war baby boom.  This is a massive problem  which governments must seek to  solve in this decade. However  our immediate problem is what  are the young people goimg to  do this summer?  For some months, the federal  government has been planning a  summer program for youth in  Canada'. The stories about fifty  million dollars worth of free bus  rides was built around this survey. Although no such lunacy  was ever seriously considered  here, this fiction has gained  widespread public belief and the  result could be damaging unless  ROBERTS CREEK  (By MADGE NEWMAN)  Mr. and Mrs. James1 Forgarth  recent visitors in the district  from Montreal', have returned to  their home, wdth the assurance  that they will be back before another winter to take up residence  on the Sunshine Coast.  Mr. and Mrs. Ken Dalgleish,  recently  returned  from  a  visit  with relatives in Oregon,, have,  had as their guest, their cousin,  Mr. C. Weber.  Mrs. N. F. de Montreve, Crow  Road, had a brief visit from her:,  son,   Greg,   of   San   Francisco,  over the weekend.  Mr. and Mrs. S. E.

Spending a week at their summer home here are Mr. and  Mrs. Wylie James, of Nanaimo,  and their son Walter and his  family.  Mrs. K. Norris, New Westminster, and Mrs. J. L. Ewen, Kelowna, are guesits of their brother, Mr. Harry Kaye and Mrs.  Kaye.  A fiery fate?  Twenty-five years ago the Rob  erts Creek Players Club purchased velour stage curtains that  now hang in the Roberts Creek  Hall. It was a proud and happy  day for the handful of members  who, with such profits as $8 and  $29 and so on from their performances, finally managed to  scrape together enough money  to get them.  Their first plays were performed on temporary stages with  borrowed curtains from the Sechelt Indian school. The stage  addition was completed and used  for the first time on May 27,1944  the curtains bought in February,  1946.  When not in use by the club  for the use of the hall board'  the curtains were left hanging  Now the eagle eye of the fire  marshall has spotted them and  ordered them either chemically  sprayed, or removed. Doubtless .  they will make a fine, great  blaze one of these days when  they are taken out and burned.  Blake C. Alderson, D.C.  CHIROPRACTOR  Post Office Building, Sechelt  TUES..

This afternoon (March 16). the  Prime Minister announced the  youth program to the house of  commons. Since his statement  was general in nature, I attach  details of the nine programs involved under the four different  ministries.  You will note there is to be increased hiring by the civil service of yduths for summer woxik  and increased activity in Canada  Manpower centres directed specifically to the hiring of youths.  There will also be efforts to gain  the fullest co-operation of private industry which now, as always, carries the main load of  providing jobs. Various types of  militia training will be continued and expanded.  Last summer's program of assistance to travelling youth will  be continued, although with  some significant differences of  approach. The government's  view is that young people will be  on the road in great numbers  again this year and that this can  be good experience for them in  learning more about their own  country and other countries.  There will be support for organized group travel programs  and interproviincial exchanges  which will get grants- to defray  some costs of their travel. For  the hitch hikers there will be information services and aid for  hostels.  The hostel program woarked  quite well in many areas of Can-.  ada last year, but some experiments proved disastrous, notably  at Vancouver's Beatty Street  Armories. It is in this airea that  a different approach has been  taken.  -No armories will be used for  hostels this year. Federal money  will be available for assisting in  the establishment of hostels.  However, the initiative in establishing hostels thisi year is  left to local municipalities or local voluntary organizations. If  municipalities want to have volunteer groups undertake hostel  operations, there may be federal  finis, nieial assistance. However  the heed for them and the direction will be a matter of decision  by the local people. Pirovincial  governments will also be involved in the general program.  Hopefully, with local initiative  and local control, most if not all  of last year's damaging mistakes  can be averted.  The bulk of the $57,000 of the  youth program will be spent by  Defence Department, Manpower and Immigration Department,  National Health and Welfare  (educational grants) and the  Public Service Commission. The  Secretary of State's department  will spend $21,000,000. Of -this,:  about $7,000,000 will go for tua-v  vel, hostels, and' language training programs with a renewed  emphasis on community participation.  Apart from a decision on the  hostel program, most of these  pirograms listed so far do not  directly involve your council. I  trust that information will be  made widely known to young  people so that they apply early  to Manpower offices for work, to  the militia, or to other appropriate agencies. '-..'.-.'  There is, however, a hew program which could have application in our area. The bulk of the  Secretary of State's appropriation, some $15,000,000 is for a  prograan called Opportunities  for Youth.  This prograan will not provide  jobs at average wage levels for  you rag people. But, with the initiative of Volunteer agencies, it  6     Coast News, March 24, 1971.  can provide financial assistance  ������."for public service projects. This  "~is the "challenge" of which the  Prime Minister spoke today in  "calling on young people to have  ^irfre "stamina and self discipline  to follow through on their criti-  -.cisms- and advice."  A considerable number of possible projects occur to me. Antipollution work could be undertaken by young people. Hiking  trails could be cut through poa>  . 'tions of our wilderness areas.  Local parks dould be enlarged  or improved.  What is required is the leadership of local, voluntary, nonprofit organizations who can de-  viise public service projects, perhaps of an adventurous nature,  On which young people could  spend their effort this summer  and, at the end, have a real  sense of accomplishment.  As many as half a million  youths could become involved in  these projects. All projects must  be completed by September 30,  1971. '   Farms and guides are not yet  available but in the meantime T  hope that any local orgainization  interested in such projects will  g-ve the matter their urgent consideration. An early application  seems essential. There is no way  of knowing how quickly this appropriation will be taken up, but  if there is an enthusiastic response in Canada the 15 millions  could very quickly melt away.  Council won't be offended, I  hope, if I also use this letter as  my regular weekly newspaper  column. I am anxious to reach  as many people as possible with  all speed. Hopefully, Coast Chiicotin residents'can benefit from  this*.  ���Yours truly,  Paul St. Pierre, M.P.,  Coast Chiicotin.  C. B. Davies  'Death of C. B.

We need highly skilled  workers who can adjust to new  developments in science and  technology, and governments  must make provision- for the  necessary training. Increases in  productivity will have to be shared with the workers in the form  of incentives. The psychological'���;  attitude of labor and manager  mentt to the work process is one  of the most important factors in  increasing productivity.  New and imaginative efforts at  the bargaining table are needed  to meet our objectives and this  is a time when management and  labor should dedicate themselves  to a*n all-out effort to maike British Columbia an environment of  growth, a healthy and genuine  growth that is real because it  springs from increased productivity.  RCMP baffled!  His missing overshoes disturbed a constable of the RCMP  when he visited Elphinstone Secondary school on a routine assignment. He took off his muddy  overshoes and left them at the  door. When he returned to get  them they were not to be seen.  So he returned to headquarters  and reported his overshoes miss-  . ing.  Later developments revealed  some one had moved them from  the door to another spot. Now  the RCMP have their complete  number of overshoes.  ORDER NOW  Your Boats & Motors  1  B.C.

R. G.  Williston, provincial minister of  lands, forests and water resources was getting things mixed up  in the matter of park lands for  the Sunshine Coast, Sechelt'js  council will write the minister  for further clarilf_cation.  Council had previously written to see what can be done  about reserving park land adjacent to Seehelt for future recreational purposes. The mattea*  proceeded so slowly that Hon.  Isabel Dawson's aid was sought.  She wrote the minister and forwarded his reply to her to council.  The minister angued in his letter that there would appear to  be some duplication of effort in  view of the fact that a recrea-;  tional centre was now being processed in the Roberts Creek area  As Sechelt was within the boundaries Of the Regional District,  he thought that council should  refer its request to that board.  Members of council argued  that the proposed recreational  centre was some six or seven  miles from Seohelt and that apparently the minister was confusing council's request with the  Roberts Creek proposal. So coun  eil decided it wioiuld write the  minister again in the hopes the  minister would get his hiind  straightened out to the satisfaction of Sechelt's council.  Seals over fop  The Ohriistmas Seal campaign  in Sechelt has gone over the top  by $310. Campargn books closed  on $1,971,compared to last year's  total of $1,661.

The "fund provides up to a  maximum of $35,000 indemnity  for each accident which comes  within the provisions "of the governing act, due to one of the  causes mentioned above. All property damage claims are subject to $200 deductible. ThRs  means that if you are driving a  ���car worth $1,000 and you are hit  by a car driven by an uninsured  driver you can collect $800 as  compensation' for your car, presuming of course, that it was  completely damaged and.had no  salvage value.  (Copyright)  If you were the only innocent  victim involved in the accident  then the maximum of $35,000 is  available in payment for your  personal injuries minus what has  been paid out for your damaged  car. If you had a passenger in  your car at the time of the accident and both of you were injured, then the maximum of  $35,000 may have to be splat between the two of'you. There is  not a maximum of $35,000 for  each person but rather a maximum of $35,000 for each accident  and it must foe divided according to the number of people involved who may have a claim  against the fund.  Payments by the fund cover  such things as medical costs for  doctors, hospitals, ambulance  and loss of earnings for someone  who because of his injuries' is  kept away from his work. In  some cases the fund will also  pay up to one-half of legal costs.  Editor: As a real estate salesman I do indeed take exception  to your article Local Support  Desirable published in your February 24 edition.  Firstly, the reason I became  involved in selling real estate on  the Sunshine Coast was due to  property owners approaching me  and for your information agents  are licensed to sell real estate  in the Province of B.C.  Secondly, in all cases, without  exception, I co-operate with  other brokers whether I am selling in Gibsons, Vancouver, Powell River, Langley or elsewhere  in our province.  Thirdly, I have an interest in  several properties in Gibsons,  Powell River and elsewhere and  therefore contribute to the upkeep Of these areas with' tax  dollars. May I also point out that  many thousands of dollars are  spent by the people you condemn for food, lodging, repairs,  and local improvements.  And last but not least may I  point out that you have not been  too proud to take my money  when I wished to purchase material and advertising space  from you.  Let's put the mind in gear before we put the pen in motion.  ���H. M. RANKIN.  Editor: This is in response to  your editorial of February 24,  1971 re Local Support Desirable.  The undersigned who is a local  home-owner and taxpayer feels  that you have put yourself in a  very vulnerable position (with  all resipects to the freedom of  the press.) I dare you to pursue  this matter a great deal further  by running a feature article  complete with statistics showing  the gross dollar volume in sales  that our local real estate companies have achieved as compared to the so-called 'outsiders'  who come up from Vancouver.  It would also be very interesting to know how many advertising dollars the local real estate  companies spend to promote the  Sunshine Coast as compared to  the outsiders. Arid, one must remember that real estate advertising is the advertising that  gets to the general public. I'll  bet you that these so-called outside real estate companies spend  more advertising dollars in promoting the Sunshine Coast than  the combination of all of the lo-  TRAIL BAY CARTAGE  PHONE ANYTIME  885-2848  W. PHILIP GORDON  CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT  Room 208, Harris Block .  Gibsons  Ph. Bus. 886-2714; Res. 886-7567  cal real estate companies,  Boards of Trade or Comimetfoe,  iput together! These so-called  outsiders who come up from  Vancouver are the best boom in  the form of advertising that any  resident of the Sunshine Coast  could hope for. They bring in  resident and non-resident purchasers into the area who pay  local and government taxes that  may not otherwise be acquired.  Should I wish to offer my property for sale (and I'm just as  greedy as the rest of you) I'll  tell you what I'd Want! The real  estate salesman or company  who is willing to spend the most  dollars in advertising with the  broadest coverage and exposure  possible to get me the highest  possible price for my property.  In other words the more people  that know about my property  the better are my chances of  getting the highest price for it  I. could care less whether the  local real estate salesman can  continue to put bread and butter  on his family table every night  er that his company, could continue to find it economically  feasible to advertise in the classified section of your newspaper.  I want the most money that I  can get for my property!  Should I decide to become civic minded rather than just looking out for myself then I must  tip my hat to those, outsiders  who can lure people into the  area strictly by promotion.  These new commers wall hire local tradesmen such as carpenters, plumbers, electricians, etc.  and they will buy material locally which all adds to the economy  of the area. In turn we must assume that these local tradesmen  are also very civic minded and  that they will spend dollars more  freely and expand their businesses which will certainly add to  the overall economy of the area.  ���G. KNOWLES  Editor: It is my privilege, as  president, of the B.C. Tuberculosis-Christmas Seal Society,  to extend sincere thanks to you  and your paper for assistance in  making this past Christmas Seal  campaign the best on record.  British Columbians donated  more than $417,000 toward the  fight to eliminate tuberculosis  and to discover causes and cures  for other respiratory diseases,  such as emphysema and chronic  bronchitis.  This amount tops last year's  total by $7,000.  I would like to be able to  shake hands personally with  each publisher and editor around  the province in gratitude for assistance given in printing our  news releases and in helping to  keep readers informed of progress made and how they help  in the Society's field of endeavors.  You and your readers have  given the Society the opportunity to take another firm step into  the seventies with new strength  and purpose in reaching for our  goals.  ���C. W. DOODSON,  President.

Labor scene  Canada's first union-sponsored  day care centre for the children  of working mothers will open in  Victoria April 1. Sponsor of the  centre is the Victoria branch of  the B.C. Government Employees  Union.  The 2,000 member branch has  put up $4,000 for the operation of  the centre and for renovation of  the red brick building, at 106  Superior Street, which will have  facilities for care of 20 children  in the three-to-five age group.  Branch president Ken Kent  said electricians, carpenters and  other trades members of the  BCGEU have donated their time  and skills to the renovation job.  He said the centre, providing  care from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.  on week days, will operate on a  non-profit basis. It will be staffed by a supervisor and two assistants. Rates to be charged for  ���use of the centre will vary according to the parents' ability  to pay.  In Court  A Canadian star!  If there's a Canadian who hasn't heard of Anne Murray, he  couldn't have watched television,  listened to a radio or read a  newspaper during the last eight  months.  Almost everyone knows how  the 25 year-old blonde from Nova Scotia has catapulted from  relative obscurity (as a featured  singer on the CBC's . Singalong  Jubilee) to international prominence within a year.  CBC-TV's Telescope '71 presents a fascinating glimpse into  the private life and thoughts of  Canada's newest and biggest  star Tuesday, March 30 at 8:30  p.m. when they present Annie on  the Move, in color.  As well as her million seller,  Snowbird arid her top-selling albums, Anne has been named top  female enitertainer of the year  by Canadian Pressy awarded the  Canadian record industry's top  Juno Award, been nominated for  two Grammy Awards, starred in  two oif her own CBC-TV specials  (with two more to come) and  appears regularly on major U.S.  television.  Telescope's film crew, led by  David Pears, followed he r  through a rigorous grind of engagements, catching both her  public and private moments.  It's a picture album of Anne  on the move, starting1 with her  smash opening night at the posh  Imperial Room at the. Royal  York Hotel in Toronto to the inr  timate moments with her Mom  and Dad back home in Spring-  hill (where she grew up, the  only girl among five brothers).  Viewers will also watch her tap*-  ing the Glen Campbell Show in  Los Angeles arid in various locations around Toronto, including her new apartment home in  that city.  Shot-gun tee-off succeeds  School board  in dilemma  A dilemma faces the school  board. It has to decide whether  it will make the $53,000 sum  from an earlier referendum intended for construction of a  school board office surplus to be  used elsewhere.  The dilemma arises when the  board finds that if it does make  that sum surplus for use in Other  needs it would have a difficult  time in getting departmental approval of a new sum in a new  referendum.   The   department  points   out  that  under present  restrictions   building   of  school  board offices is not permissible.  Elphinstone school government  requested  the   board  give  further consideration to leasing the  gymnasium    for   further   non-  school dances, maintaining that  public  reaction   resulting   from  episodes   that   occur   at   such  dances    affects    them.    Board  members maintained that a public dance is not a dance for students and that the board feels  it has the situation under control.  A request for additional car  parking inside Gibsons Elementary School grounds was turned  down on the basis of fire hazard'  and increased traffic within the  grounds.
