Beaver described as one of the  waianest welcoaneis they have  had to any oif their ports of call,  when they arrived in Gibsons.  The ship was met on the way in  by the tug Grapple with a fire  department pump on her stern,-  and a boatload of pirates who  boarded, and captured the ship.  When she finally manoeuvred  around to tie up at the float,  there was a large crowd', hiairi-  ly children, waiting to board and  look through the museum on  board.

Austin, began  its selections with March of the  Irish Guard, and also included  Fantasy for Band, Call AH* the  Horns, Laura's Theme and the  theme from Love Story.

FIRE  COSTS UP  The forest fire season- has  made a fast start in B.C. this  "year and after only two weeks  both the number and fighting  costs far exceed last year's figures for the sanie period.

There is a continuous plan for  water development and council  was now working towards areas  now without water. The Vdrain-  age problem was also under consideration.  He suggested sidewalks would  be coming up for School road  and the high school area. It is  being budgetted but the start  will be on a small scale. He fore  cast the changeover from' a septic tank system to that of a municipal sewage system will not  be simple.  The village was not seeking expansion unless it was desired' by  the people concerned. He referred to the extension of the  Municipal Hall which' would  . most likely be a reality later this-  year.  Chairman Larry Labonte reported on a meeting of the three  area chambers of commerce at  Sechelt where it was decided  that closer co-operation would  be of advantage to the area.  PLAN DENTAL PROJECT  The school (board, has arranged  with Dr. T. W. Hicks, dental  director for Coast - Garibaldi  "Health Unit to attend the next  boarcd meeting to discuss a proposal covering a school dental  hygiene project.

The auxiliary  makes up any additional ex__  penses.    _  Resignations have been received and accepted from Guiders  Marilyn Ranniger, Eleanor  White, Denise Quarry, and. Ar-  lene White. Eleahor White and  Marilyn Ranniger started the  3rd Brownie Pack four years  ago. During that time Eleanor  took many additional hours of  work and training to obtain her  pack .holiday and campers license which enabled many girls  to attend Camp Olave. She still  plans to take girls to camp while  on her leave of absence. Eleanor  is also a qualified trainer and  has been a great asset to the  Guide movement. She deseirves  a well earned rest.  Close to $25,000 has been allotted the Sunshine Coast area under the: -federal government Opportunities for Youth movement.  Information from the Vancouver Regiphal office of the federal  department of state- reveals  7^that  two  of   the   three  federal  v ^ grants''under  the Opportunities  , for Youth program have been allotted .to Baribara Yates-,  Grow  Road commune,'according to the1  listing.'    ^    : v  " Thetwo grants cover $1,000 to  assist: in the development of self-  _-ifficiency for urban) people  through learning of'crafts', vegetable gardening and stock raising, also $8,425 to provide jobs  , and activities for 20 young people on a rotating basis in a rural  fretting with training in farm  ? skills;  7 The third grant reads:  I Vancouver ��� Vancouver Inner City Service ��� $15,500 for a  project to teach rural living  skills to unemployed youth in  two comimiunes  on  the  Sechelt  ��� Peninsula,   employing  24   post-  - secondary students1 skilled* in agriculture, engineering and biology.

JA plan to help; provide food and  vtork for young transients arriving in Victoria this summer has  been awarded an Opportunities  for Youth grant of $7,506.  Proposed by the -< Victoria  Youth'''Council',, the project will  give three months' employment  to two: students and temporary  work to about 50 transients.  They will farm three acres oif  tend leased to the youth council  by the Municipality of Saanich  for $1 and other private land  which has been made available.  Produce from the farm will  go to the Cool-Aid youth hostel  in Victoria. The farm will provide immediate jobs for young.  transients' during their three-day  sitay at the hostel, and pay them  $10 a day, enabling them to travel oh without being destitute.  Six hundred and thirty British  Columbia high school students-  will travel to other parts of Canada this year under the terms  of a federal-provincial agreement signed May 7 in Victoria,  and an equal number from other  parts of Canada will visit British Columbia during coming  months.  In 1971, more than 4,000 students across. Canadia will take  part in the Young Voyageurs  program. Of these, some 3,800  wall travel in the regular summer program, and some 400 will  be exchanged during the school  year.  Vo hostel says chamber  Gibsons and Distract Cha'mber  of Cammerce at its Monday  night meeting voted unanimously  against the proposal to establish  a transient hostel in this area.  . The meeting, held at the Peninsula Hotel, heard Mrs. Agnes  Labonte report on a meeting  held earlier in the United Church  hail when citizens who were in  vited to attend heard argument  on the proposal without reaching any conclusion.  Mrs. Labonte reported to the  chamber meeting that the young  people favored free grouping  and did not like too many regulations. When the vote was taken the meeting was unanimously opposed. ,  Ellwood leaves;  Montgomery new  Elphie principal  With the1 departure of Principal T. G. Ellwobdi of Elphinstone  Secondary school, Gibsons, to  Saanich where, he will be director of school instruction, Thursday night's school board meeting appointed' viee-iprincipal D.  L.

He has also had teaching experience in Australia.  Mr. Montgomery started teach  ing in 1954 at Prince- George and  later at Ashcrcft and Penlioton.  He was vice-principal at Elphinstone during 1967-68 and following a short session-at Greenwood  school in Kettle- Valley he returned to Elphinstone school.

Barbara Yates appeals  for help to aidxvtsitors  Editor: In reference to your  article in the May 12 issue of  the Coast News entitled Mayor  Cool on Invasion.       ; _: 7 7      %....,  4:i'rstJyi.i.' should; say _%.was pne^  of the young people at the Council meeting. We were informed  the hostel topic would be discussed and as concerned members of the coonimunity we felt  we should be there.  It is reasonable to assume that  a number of young people will  be travelling through the area  this summer. We hope that some  provision can be made for them.  The Mayor explained that financial aid was. impossible, which  we can well understand. We are  very aware of the already overburdened taxpayer. During the  meeting we repeatedly expressed we were there not to seek fiin*-  an'eial support but to- staiblishi a  good relationship with the com-,  munity. The federal government  -would be responsible for financing a local hostel-.  The Mayor stressed that transients were entirely to blame for  the current rash of break-ins.  This is most unjust. I would  like to point out that on the  same page as this article was an  item dealing with the sentence of  a local youth for breaking and  entering.  At the meeting a general attempt was made to discredit us.  With  one exception we  are all  local, residents and over 21 years  of age. It appears that because  we were not born here we are  considered   undesirable   outsiders. We  have chosen this) area  over many parts of Canada to  settle in. Surely this- is a compliment.  I  have lived here for  over a year and consider Gibsons my home. During this time  I  have  met  many  fine  people  and made a number of friends  here.  We   would  like   to   make  Gibsons our home and therefore  feel we should work to establish  good comanunity relations.  It was also stated that police  facilities were already overtaxed  and "if these young people were  encouraged to come we might be  sorry later on." Young people  will be here Whether there is a  hostel or not. We should accept  this fact and look for a solution  to the1 situation. Are all trans-  ien youth criminals who must  be carefully guarded1? Are these  young people such a dire threat  to the peace of the town? Remember these are your kids we  are talking about.  Tajapaj'ers feel they are being  used.  This   to  some  extent  is  true, but do consider the other  side. Young people are also being exploited; The_ fede_*_d gov-  ]|rani^^ha^vad^  are not enough- jobs this summer. They have set up ah intricate system of hostels from coast  to  coast   and   are   encouraging  youth to  travel.  There are no  jobs but you  can  have  a  fine  summer   on   the   road.   If   you  should v/ant to go back to school  this- fall forget it, unless you are  one of the privileged* few who  have found summer employment  On lop of all this,  should you  run   into   a   hostile   community  who doesn't like transients that's  all right  too!   You  are  only  a  second   class   citizen   anyway!  You don't have a job so you are  obviously no good and if you are  no good then you don't deserve  help!    Everyone    knows'    your  story. They write newspaper articles! about you,  you  are televised, studied and explained by  just about everybody.   No   one  talks to you but that is okay too.  You  are  the  new phenomenon.  You are it baby so you'd better  dig  it!   Do  be  careful though,  don't   try   to   justify   yourself.  There is no justification for your  kind. Try not to let ye olde cliches get you down, 'You people  are all the same' or 'We're not  really prejudiced,  boy,  we just  don't like your kind.' You can  everf protest for you are only a  pawn in their game.  If you are even a little mixed  up, if you ciy, if you care about  your brother or think people are  basically good, please, stay  home this year. If you can't stay  home then God help you because  no one else will.  There are going to be a lot of  people on the coast this summer.  There will be young people, old  people and in between people.  Rich folk, poor folk, and dogs  and kids and babies will all be  here too, but we are all just  people, aren't we? Since we are  all going to be here this summer let's make it a good time  for everyone. The time for getting together is now.  ���Love and Peace,  BARBARA  YATES.

The Public Youth Program  When the first information was revealed concerning the fed*-  eral government youth program, initial reaction tended to regard  it as a free bus ride at public expense for the teenage population.  However since government programs have beem issued they do  not show anything like free bus rides on an unrestrained scale.  Outside of some local projects which entail* little travel if any*  there is a controlled travel arrangement for about 700 young people to travel to designated areas in the east and the same numiberi  to visit the west from the east.  This makes it clear that the influx causing concern in varied,  places has nothing to do with government assistance progratmsj.  This poses a question. Should this aggregation of youngj peopfe  who desire to be on the move have access to whatever they de-\  sire at no cost to them? Should their unrestrained desire be en-��  couraged? Should it become a right for young people to expect  their demands be met wherever they decide something should be  dene?  Every situation has its economics and when the unwanted economics are a burden for one side only a close look should be taken)  of possible eventualities. Word has been issued that there are no  jobs available in B.C. lor these travellers. So they must be com-,-  ing on their own responsibility. Just how far does public duty gm  to a group that decides on such responsibility?  The majority of these travellers originate from homes, the  same kind we have in British Columbia. It is true they have tr_e��  right to move albout the country ��� but at the expense of others?>  Organized tours are another matter. They are under,control  and offer little trouble other than what might arise within the  group itself. The unorganized travelers are the problem and a lot  will depend on the attitudes of individuals concerned.  Paul St. Pierre M.P., has informed the Coast News that on no  account will' the federal government interfere in the affairs of an/  area under control of a municipal or regional government without'  consent of municipal or regional authorities.  Mayor Wally Peterson has expressed his views on the subject  of support for any influx of people who desire to roam the- country)  hoping that someone will help them if difficulties arise. He maintains that if these travellers are encouraged we might be sorry--:  later on. We have troubles now, without others showing up.  A matter of taste  What is so rare as to sample the first stailk of rhubarbf. If you!  like rhubarb, you will delight in that initial chew. It is a delicacy;  worthy of a panegyric.  What is better after a hard winter than to come across a nice;  sliced chunk of crisp rhubarb prepared for cooking (baking is better than stewing) and taking that crunch which releases1 acidulous;  juices which do so much good to a jaded system. Maybe a chunlcf  a day will keep the doctor away. Who knows?  Be like those delegates lo UN, who, our spies tell us-, decided!  after a hard day of debate, to settle their differences by trooping  to the cafeteria for some fresh rhubarb pie well sugared on to_^j  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum  announces its official opening  to take place May 21 with a ribbon cutting ceremony.  Jack Louden was appointed  by Gibsons council to check on  parked cars known as sleepers  to see what can be done to relieve the parking situation.  The Gibsons well at Gower  Point and Winn roads costing  $3,599 is now producing a good  flow of water.  10 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's Volunteer Fire Department was presented with  this year's Good Citizenship  award by the council.  The provincial education department has arranged that  grade seven pupils will return  to elementary school status.  Roberts Creek Legion hall has  been" expanded to twice its original size.  In 1955 there were 823 telephones on the Sunshine Coast.  The 1961 figure was 2,125.  15 YEARS AGO  B.C.   Electric   is  considering*-  raising tenfold the power capacity of Clo-whom generating station.  Two May Queens were selected to be crowned at Sechielt's  May Day celebration, Roberta  Johnson for the Elementary  school and Coninne Wilson for  the Residential school'.  Ken Watson's Gibsons Meat  Market advertised Grade A bone  ���less beef stew at 45 cents a  pound and boneless rolled pot  roasts at 49 cents per pound.  20 YEARS AGO  Wes Hodgson was appointed  co-ordinator for civil defence for  the area and Gilbsons was made  the focal point for the handling  of casualties if the need arose.  Roberts Creek Improvement  Association organized a work  bee for the clearing of Elphinstone park for summer use.  Gibsons council has decided to  look  into the possibility of obtaining public toilets for the village).  On May 17, 1966, the Sunshine  Coast Regional District was- organized on a pro-tern basis. It  did not receive Letters Patent  until Jan. 13, 1967. Ait the meeting when it received its Letters  Patent, its first board was: named and it included Aid. Fred  Feeney for Gibsons and Aid.  Louis Hansen for Sec__elt; J.  Dunlop for Pender Sarbour area,  Norman Watson for Sechieit-Half-  moon Bay rural, E. S. Prittjie for  Selima Park^Wilson Creek, J. C.  Gilker for Roberts Creek, Frank  West for Gibsons Rural land  Lome Wodverton for Langdale  area. , .     _    ���'  Before this board was named  the Regional' District had a pro-  tem comimittee. Here are the  ���minutes of the first inaetan-g  when the Sunshine Coast Rural  Development committee was renamed the Sunshine Coast Regional Board: ^  A special meeting of the SuifV'  shine Coast Rural D-evelopanerit  Comimittee was called to .order  by Chairman Norman Watson,  at 8:15 pxtn., May 17, 1966, in  the Hospital Cottage,  Sechelt.  Present were: Norman Watson, Sechelt, chairman; Les: Peterson, Gibsons, secretary; Miss  A. deLange, Wilson Creek, treasurer; Charles English, Oldiff Gil-  keir, Bill Price, Gibsons and  area; Henry Whittaker, Garden  Bay; Markle Myers, Madeira  Park: L.

Larson, Madeira Park;' Fred Feeney and  Wally Peterson, Gibsons; John  Durilep, Egmont;: Joe Horvath,  Roberts Creek; John Matthews,  Gibsons, and. Eric Prattle, Roberts Creek.  Moved by C. Gilker, seconded  by E. Brittle, that the Sunshine  Coast Rural Development Committee continue as a nucleus  committee although it may be  such as would be adjourned from  time to time in view of the probable developments with-'..the  provincial and federal governments. Carried. \  With the representatives of  various community projects pres  ent invited by the chairman, the  meeting then went into discus^  siion of a Regional1 District.

Peterson, that  the  Re-  *  *  *  Recent board activities  Construction Aggregates has  reached agreement with the Provincial government on all major aspects of its proposed $10  million gravel mine and sorting  plant, near Sechelt, the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board was informed in a letter read at the  April 29 meeting.  The letter offered some firm  commitments regarding several  of the proposed operation's more  controversial aspects.  The plant would process 1,500  to 2,000 tons per hour. Total  water circulation would be 10 to  12 thousand gallons per minute,  but recirculation would keep its  actual draw on the supply to  6,000 gallons per minute. The  process would involve no discharge of dirty water aj; \jatiy  point.... 77/yV,- .'/������'  The proposal was given,*the  Board's approval in priincipl-e  April 2, 1970. In mid-April it was  given outright approval b^ the  Provincial Department of Lands  pending' outright approval by the  Regional Board.  In the letter general manager  Mr. M. S. Taylor acknowledged  there were several considerations to be made before; this  could be given. Paraimouht  would be the .matter of water  supply. Mr. Taylor implied other  sources were available if the Dis  trie* did not care to undertake  the job. Also, a Regional District  pipeline right-of-way and water  reservoir conflict with one pt  the company's land lease applications and a small addition to  the original water lease application will be required. j  A special committee consisting  of Area C (Selma Park) Director Bert Slade and a combination of the regular executive and  finance committees was formed  to study the question.  ���*       #       * v  Recent changes in the Regional District's Letters Patent haye  cleared the way for same much  needed lighting at highway intersections and other areas j of  public use. .'I  B.C.

A number of administrative  changes in the Roberts Creek  Fire Department were rec-om-  imended by Director Lorne Wolverton, chairman of the Regional District fire eoramiittee, following a meeting with that fire  department's newly elected executive comimittee. }  Through the District Fire committee, -this group would form  liaison between the Fire Department and the Regional District.  The Area D Director woulid have  automatic membership on jthe  Fire committee. '  #     .  *        * ;'.  Director Wolverton's report  which was accepted by the  board, also recommended: ^the  Fire Marshal be asked to combine the Office of assistant marshal with that of local fire chief.  Building inspector Reyfburn  will be available for Area A  inspections all day Wednesday  instead of the morning only as  previously.  With an average of six inspections in the area weekly, ,Mr.  Reyburn has found it very difficult to keep office hours in the  afternoon and will not be making Wednesday office appointments henceforth.  The old wood stave water line  through Selma Park which broke  causing a two hour outage  March 31, has now been replaced with 2,070 feet of new 8" ductile main. The new line wall improve the quality of service  throughout the Selma Park and  Sechelt areas.  Four new hydrants were in-  ' eluded in the installaton.  Bids on a pump for the new  Regional District well in Langdale were opened April 6. Contract was awarded to the second lowest bidder. Laying of 6"  mains in the Langdale area will  begin this month.  *       *       *  In its discussions with Regional boards, the government's  favorite word is "co-operation,"  Director Frank West said in his .  report of the April 16 Regional  District conference in Victoria.  But the kind oif co-operation  many of the government speakers expressed in response to delegates' questions was: "Sit  down, shut up and do what we  tell you." .  This was instructive West said,  but presented a serious problem,  in ��� that no two departments  seemed to agree on priorities.  West illustrated his point by  citing the following incident:  Dan Campbell, minister of municipal affairs, had just finished  telling the delegates their gravest shortcoming was in not keying regional (planning to an overall inventory of land.  He was followed by a speaker  for the department of agriculture, which controls land inventory data. When the delegate  from Summerland pressured this  speaker, in view of Campbell's  remarks, to make land inventory  maps available to Regional Districts, the answer, West said,  was: "You can't have it. It's  secret. We don't want it published."  Up to that point discussion had  been effective and lively West  said, "But after that, what could  we say?"  The convention was cut short  toy one hour. In retrospect West  said he could not see why it was  even held.  "I don't know if it's just my  imagination, but I have a feeling  Campbell called that seminar  just to show us what he has put  up with over there," West said.  ^^***^ ��� ��� ���--���" -"���~i^irnj~LrT_j^j~irxr>_rT_rtjn_rnjrxj~^^  JOHN HARPER  Designer, Cabinetmaker  Carpenter  REASONABLE PRICES  886-7065  gdional District embrace the area  designated by the present hospital improvement district.

The firemen under  Chief Bunyan offered their services" as> a fund raising agency,  and donated the first $25 to get  the ball rolling.  As a result of the generous response of the public the Resus-  citator Fund went over the top  albout a month after the firemen  started their campaign, thereby  enabling the purchase of the  best of life saving equipment.  Shortly after that, the word brigade was dropped, in favor of  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department.  1953 saw Fred Feeney installed as the sixth' chief of the department. During the year the  interior of the hall1 was almost  completed.

During January, 1955, a fund  was slarted for the purchase of  a new truck as the old one was  requiring more and more 'maintenance. However, it was later  decided to keep the trudk and  install a new.motor. In February, Gibsons worst fire to that  date occurred when the Fairway  Service station was deaniolisihed  This fire could be called a joint  fire-fighting' effort as both the  Sechelt and Port Mellon bru-  igades were called'to assist.

It gave him only the intelligence,  to fashion his own protective devices and  the common sense to use them.  The human head is crammed with more delicate  machinery than a computer but the skull is only  one-eighth of an inch thick. It's worth protecting.  Eye injuries are often tragically final. The loss of  sight means a monumental adjustment And eye  protection is so simple.  The eardrum's delicacy is underestimated. That is  why many workmen who have been exposed to  certain types of Industrial noise over a long  period, go slowly deaf. Forever.  Lungs are like vacuum cleaner bags. Unprotected,  they become receptacles for industrial dust and  toxic fumes. Eventually, they accept no more.  Hands are highly engineered tools. They perform  more skills than any part of the body. Yet, their  safety is too often neglected-  Ordinary work clothes are no barrier against acids  and molten metals. And human skin Is not  impervious. Protective clothing is.  We need those feet But things do drop. Heavy  things. A steel-capped boot can save a lot of  pain .and grief.  Modem-safety clothing is well designed.  Comfortable, And sensible. We set and  enforce equipment regulations to keep  you saf0. Follow thenl Respect your  body and protect it. It's the only  one you have.  ujORKmens  compensaTion  BOaRD8SfS  CYRIL WHITE, Chafrman  , . _*.

Call 886-7389  Spring tea  held by OAPs  The Old Age Pensdoners,  Branch 38, on Friday, April 30  at the Health Centre, Gibsons,  held a most successful spring  tea, which was 'opened at 2 p.m.  by Mrs. Elizabeth Halstead with  warm words of welcome.  The hali was gay with spring  flowers, and many thanks must  go to the hard working committee. The' buzz of convresation  and the imterimlingling between  the tea tables, showed that everyone had a happy friendly afternoon.  Hon. Isabel Dawson was invited! to the tea, but through  other commitments and a tight  schedule, regretfully declined,  sending her best wishes;  The prize of a yellow chry-  sanithemiuim plant, donated by  Flowerlaine Florists, was won  toy Mrs. Huhtala, and an oil of  The Witch, Tree on the Monterey  Peninsula, Calf-amia, painted  and given by Mr. L. MacLaren  was, wool' by Mrs. May Swanson.  Hearty congratulations were given to Mr. and Mrs-. Mike Hauka,  who on this' day were celebrating their 53rd wedding anniversary.  The next regular meeting is  on Monday, May 7, so come and  bring your suggestions for activities during the summer.  Recently, my husband and I  experienced the joy of homecoming from a visit to the prairie. We were perhaps, too impatient when we chose the  month of April for the important etvent of meeting the fourth1  generaitdion in the family. It sioon  became clear that April is not  the best month of the yeai? to  vis-it the prairie.  Destination, Moose Jaw. From  the smart new saibunbs on the  outskirts of the laity, one has an  unobstructed view clear to the  horizon, as flat as a pancake  with nary a tree nor bush to be  seen. It was cold, bleak and desolate.  From Moose Jaw we decide  on a sort of sentimental journey  to the old home town of Regina.  In the past 20 years the growth  of the city has been fantastic.  In city centre, great modern  buildings have replacetd! the cur-  lycue architecture of the early  part of the century.  The population has more than  doubled, the city has spread: itself males and miles beyond the  city limits I remember. Where,  there was nothing but farms and  tough old prairie grass, there  are. now schools, and churches  and shopping plkzas. but at this  late date in April, not the tiniest  leaf bud showing on a tree. Everywhere;, bare ...and; brown. Then  as though punishment for my  harsh thoughts of the place  once loved so much, the old flu  bug. - nipped me, really nipped  me. Feeling very soirry for myself, I started my usual chant  "Let's go home." Fortified with  asprin and smelly throat lozenges, we 'board the plane one  chilly morning.  What a comforting feeling to  be headed westward1 toward  home.  At Calgary, big feathery snow-  flakes and patches of ice still on  Pastor ordained  Ordination of Robert Francis  Allaby took pJiace on Friday,  May 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Bethiel  Baptist church, Sechelt.

One more hour and we  are gliding into Vancouver and  into spring. Spring in Vancouver ��� the gardens ablaze with  spring blosisams, the boulevard  trees looking like big pink parasols. The drive through drifts of  daififodils in Stanley Park, then  the scenic trip across Howe  Sound to our own garden. The  grass cut and neatly trimmed.  The forsyfchia, japonica and Portugese Laurel in full bloom.  Mauve, yellow and blue rockery  plants, daiUfodals and tulips, the  big cherry tree laden with blossom looking like a mound of  freshly popped corn.  I thought hiow sweet our home.  People who live away from this  little corner of British Columbia  are strangers to paradise.  ��� Phyllis M. Hodgson.  Plaque to get  post in park  Thursday evening saw a goccL  turn-out at the  Roberts Creek  Community Association meeting.  ?Uhe 1967 Centennial plaque  which molesters' will not permit  to he mounted in the Centennial  pailk is to be hung in the posit  office, which occupies a portion  of the park. .  The association has received  a request for a donation towards  preliminary expenses of the Recreational Centre, which property  adjoins the Golf Club.  The secretary was requested  to write further letters of complaint to the Roads Department  re the condition of the access  road to ihe beach at the Creek.  The gravel aggregate problem at Selma Park was brought  up for discussion and a good  deal of time was spent on this  subject. '  Also the subject of water pressure inadequacy was discussed.  Water at the firehall and the  Community Hall at that time  was almost non-existent.  . Mr. H. Almond, representa  tive on the Regional Board, was  present and answered many  questions. One question asked  was about the paying oif the water tax, and a request made to  allow payments' to be made over  the year.  Two zone maps have been applied for and will he on view in  the hall.  The Roberts Creek Centennial  project, the improvement to the  hall kitchen, has been approved.  It was reported that a senior  softball team has been formed,  with practice at the school  grounds.

In an effort to advance the  fire protection area outside the  village oif Gibsons, Chief Feeney and1 a delegation of the fire  department sought help of the  village fathers to allow an organized fire fighting force to acquire iby outright purchase or  by lease the old fire truck now  used as a standby truck. Although exipressTng sympathy  with the objective of the firemen  the commission explained that  under the Municipal Act their  hands were lied. Because of this,  the firemen decided to form an  incorporated organization under  the Societies Act, which was accomplished in December 1957.  The beginning of the annual  commission dinners- for the volunteers, which have been very  much appreciated', also started  in 1957.  On becoming registered under  the Societies Act and being incorporated as the Gibsons and  Area Fire Department, the firemen called the first general public meeting on March 15, 1958 at  which 60 interested persons attended. The call for volunteers  to sign for future  fire protection service saw 75 applications  taken  out.  Membership to obtain the service cost $5 a year.  The firemen announced they had'  donated from their own financial  resources $250 towards the purchase of a fire truck.  Officials for the first year  were: Fred Feeney, president;  Bill Scott, viceHpresident; Cliff  Mahlman, secretary; Dick Kendall, treasurer. The area of coverage was1 set at Langdate sub-  div-sion on the north-, Seaview  Cemetery oh the west, Gower  Point on the south and Howe  Sound on the east.  In April the village commission offeree, the old fire truck to  the area for $250 which was immediately accepted. Wji 11 i a m  Weinhandl ofifereid the use of the  ��� building on his property to house  the fire truck. Cterence S-cotte  donated his services' to bulldoze  the area1 and move the bu-ld&ng  closer tp the North Road. By the  end of May 200 associate memberships had been taken out.

Records from Kindergarten or other pre-school experience should  be submitted to the school. Scouts oil homemade snowshoes  Twenty-six Gibsons scouts put  on a two-act, eight hour demonstration before thousands of onlookers at the recent Scouiting-in-  Action show in the PNE's Pure  Foods and Show Mart buildings.  Every hour on the half hour the  senior patrol led by Pioneer  Scout Melvin Gokool, lashed a  live patient into a steel and wire  stretcher and, with 30 foot ropes  howlined to the stretcher, handled the casualty up and! over a  seven foot wall. Volunteers for  the free ride came from the audience and in one. dlisplay 13 yr.  old Gathrdhe Wholtworth of West  Vancouver took the: part as the  patient.  ���Alternately, on- the hour, the  other three patrols took part in  a demonstration siihiii_laiting fire  rescue in dense smoke. A fire  net held by the boys was the  target for a team of jumpers  including Pat Ga_nes> Kelly  Frederick, Gerald McConnell,  Graeme Winn, Michael Hanson,  ���Michael Plourde and Eric and  7 Bruce Hansen, who took turns  f jumping blindfolded from- a 24  ^fltf ladder. At one point a Sun  $$fa)togTa^er climbed to the top  offihe ladder and took a picture  of "Gerald McConnell making a  perfect two point landing. After  the blindfold juuriping volunteers  were encouraged to try their  luck in landing seat first. Hundreds of children and many adults including Alderman ,,Art  Philips of Vancouver enjoyed  participating.  JScoutingrin-Action drew over  20,000 visitors, and a letter from  Scout headquarters sent to the  1st Gibsons Troop read: "Certainly the boys and crowd around  1st Gibsons Troop's diving exercise into the safety net was a  real successful ..do,-., Congratulations to 1st Gibsons for having a  picture of their event in the Vancouver Sun. This1 is a real plus  factor."  More recently 1st Gibsons  Troop planted 200 Douglas fir  seedlings in the Chapman Creek  area under the professional guidance of Mr. Ozzie^Hincks. Scouts  paired :off for the planting operation and each pair tagged! their  rows of trees for checking  through the ryears to come. j  Pioneer Scouts Melvin Gokool  and Fred Love, and! scouts John  Volen,: Michael and David Hauka, Graeme Winn, Michael Hanson, Steven Jackson, Bill Christiansen, Ron Girard, Glenn  Beaudry, Michael Plourde, Terry Verhulst and Gerald McConnell participated in a survival  hike and camp with nothing  more than a blanket and a- package of dried soup and some nuts.  The hike took them above the  2200 ft. level and into, the snow  to try out their homemade plywood snowshoes of the Naskapi  tribe design. A snowshoe race  . was held to -,test the lamp-wick-  bindings and the strength of the  shoes. Ron Girard was the winner.  Last week 37 scouts of the 1st  Gibsons troop got time from  classes to get in more than two  and .a half hours sea-leg time  on board HMCS Chaleur, (captained by Lieutenant George  Braithwaite of Victoria) on a  voyage around Gambier Island.  During the trip Officer of the  Watch manoeuvres were conducted with precise alterations  of course and speed, and, with  the sounding of six blasts of the  ship's siren man overboard procedure was exercised. The rescue was effected by life ring,  diver in wet suit and a fo'c's'le  derrick manned by the duty  watch.  The scouts were shown all  over the vessel in four separate  groups with the bridge, wheel-  house and radar room attracting keen interest. On boarding  the scouts saluted the quarterdeck and at the end of the visit  they gave a hearty thank you  yell. So enthusiastic were some  of the boys that they went on to  the bridge to thank the capiairi  personally.  Boys of the 1st Gilbsons Scout  Troop are anxious to make  themselves available to any  pensioner, widow or fatherless  family in the , area who have  work they might need help with.  No funds are accepted1 for pro-,  jects of this nature.  URGE PROMPT RESCUES  Both Gilbsons and Sechelt  councils have offered support to  the District of Campbell River's  request that an improved air-  sea rescue, operation Ibe set-up:  Both councils1 urge the Air-Sea-  IResteue organization to contact  local air services wherever possible instead of delaying until a  crew can be obtained for the  Air-Sea Rescue craft. The matter arose over the loss of two  men in Campbell River who  could have been saved by  prompt action.

SmiLinG CALL FOR  LnBRTT'S BLUE'  This advertisement is not published or displayed by the Liquor Control Board or by the Government of British Columbia m  GRAVEL MINING        .  Sechelt Area  VALID REASONS WHY A FORESHORE UEASE IN Mil BAY SHOULD BE DISALLOWED:  VALID REASONS WHY LEASES OF CROWN LAND FOR THE PURPOSE OF GRAVEL  STRIP MINING SHOULD BE DISALLOWED:  1. IN JUNE OF 1969, (and many other times) a large number of taxpayers expressed their concern about the proposed gravel operation. In- the ensuing 23 months-, C5o-_-  struction Aggregates has not presented one iota of factual information to the public.  _  2. LETTER TO HON. ISABEL DAWSON by the Regional board Dec. 14, 1970, stating  that all- details must be submitted before any further consideration be given. Nothing  has been submitted yet ��� here is a request to get on with the approvals by Construction Aggregates and the board -plans an executive meeting on the subject instead of informing Construction Aggregates of what is required.  3. LETTER TO THE REGIONAL BOARD by Construction Aggregates Dec. 7, 1970;  stating nothing further to be done until all studies were; complete and a detailed submission to all interested parties of actual intentions and plan. Nothing of this nature  has been delivered-forthwith and yet a request to approve has been made. This is outo  of order.  4. THE MARY HILL CONSTRUCTION AGGREGATES operation has nothing to dx\  with the Sechelt area and there is little point in a delegation going to examine thei  project. Regardless oif whatever is going on elsewhere, this type of industry in the proposed location is not welcome to the people of the district nor is> it wanted. If thenei are  any doubts in the matter, it shouldbe resolved by proper hearing and discussionsi and!  then decided upon by plebiscite.  5. TO LIVE AMONG A GRAVEL COMPLEX is hardly what anyone could dall desirous.  6. IN OTHER AREAS OF THE PROVINCE, the people and their local governments  are striving to protect and preserve their environment. It is difficult to understand)  why, in an area such as the Sunshine Coast, here should be any question at all, of) a  gravel mining industry, with its disastrous effects on the environment. Riv-Tow Straits  is quite enough and this should bear watching for a couple of years. This coulid indicate  whether a larger complex is compatible..to,the.(Mstrictv....-.,....,i,i.....  7. IT IS AN INCONTESTABLE FACT that the welfare oif the patients and staff of  St. Mary's Hospital will not be improved by the close proximity of a gravel crushing,  plant with the incessant noise and dUst and general disturbance.  8. THE BEACHES ARE BECOMING CROWDED all ready in the season and as the  summer approaches, more and more people, local: and visitors, will require the use of  the^ beaches. The recreational need for beaches, wooded areas that are not spoiled, ib  an essential and must be considered paramount to any excuse submitted why a mining ���  complex should be pemnitted to be established in the centre of a growing community  and recreational" area'.  9. THE BEACH IN FRONT OF THE VILLAGE OF SECHELT has been, reserved for  recreational purposes. It is not compatible to-have gravel loading facilities in such <  close proximity.  10. SUPPLY OF WATER IS NOT AVAILABLE because domesticrequirement? wHl  need it all in the near future. Recycle of water does not appear to be logicaL  11. THE DANGER OFSEEPAGE:fr6_n:j_6tWQg''ponds constimcted aibove Selma PaaV  is a possibility.  12. ALL RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY IN THE AREA will depreciate in value; how  much property will be afifected depends on the size of the gravel operation. It is reasonable to assume that Selma Park will become' a slum area, and, as such, will have-  little hope of amalgamation with Sechelt Villge.  13. THE INDUSTRIAL MARINE TRAFFIC will create a serious hazard to swimmers  and boaters (skiers) in the water and beach area of Trail Bay. It will not be possible-  to moor small pleasure craft in the area because of possible damage by tugs, barges,  etc.  14. IN THE EVENT OF STRIKES or labor stoppages by any of the unions connectedi  with tow boats, there will be unsightly stockpiles of gravel on beaches or wherever*. ���  SEVERAL YEARS AGO A BREAKWATER was constructed by the federal gov-  15  ernment as a harbor of refuge for the increasing number of small boats1 plying the?  coastal waters. Gravel loading near this hairbor of refuge will no.longer make it a  pleasant and restful anchorage, but a noisy, dirty, industrial development to be avoided except in extreme emergencies. Expansion of present breakwater will not be possible.  16. AT THE PRESENT TIME THERE IS PUBLIC ACCESS by road to the beach and  homes bordering the foreshore under question. It is doubtful if this road will be kefpti  open, and if it is, access will be through and under the gravel conveyor and works.  J7. FOR YEARS TRAIL BAY HAS BEEN ENJOYED by the public as a recreationfeiS  area-for swimming, boating, fishing, shellfishing. The foreshore lease applied for by  Construction Aggregates lies roughly in the centre of ihe crescent of Trail Bay, thereby!  posing the maximum threat to the surrounding areas in terms of aesthetics, noise dusti,  water pollution and unpleasant conditions for the residents and a devaluation of homes'  and property.  18. THERE WOULD BE NO HESITATION as to whether this type of industry is compatible to the well being of Sechelt if a few more homes existed in the area to be dese--  crated. There will be many as time goes on because this is the natural expansion area.  19. IF THE ABOVE MENTIONED OBJECTIONS to this type of industrial development  in Trail Bay are not considered valid: obviously there can be no valid objections to a)  fish cannery at Secret Cove, an iron mine.at Redroofs, a gravel mine at Gower Point,  a cement pfetnt on the sands of Davis Bay, or a pulp mill in Pender Harbour.  20. NEVER LET IT BE IGNORED OR FORGOTTEN, that should a gravel mine become a- reality in the Sechelt area it can and will happen all over the Sunshine Coast.  There is no use closing the bam door after the cow has left. There is no use complaining when it is too late. Apathy is the reason taxpayers do not get what they want.  21. REMEMBER, THIS OR ANY SIMILAR gravel mining operation will bring nothing  worthwhile to the Sunshine Coast. It is purely and simply exploitation of our area bS*\  big business to acquire material to make money. It's just that simple; and rest assured!  Ocean Cement and associates are not going to go broke if they are obliged to go?  elsewhere.  If you agree with the above objections, simply clip out the article, sign and-;  mail to The Secretary, Regional Board Offices, R.R. 1, Davis Bay, B.C. Mail before  May 25,1971.  This notice is paid for by interested and concerned residents.  -*#&��� Consumers  news  and  views  by  Consumers' Association of Canada  ��l-_r$:y  ;,.,.r--v;ur-.'  If you have a move in your future, the results oif a survey on  household moving by members  of the.Consumers' Association of  Canada might be of interest to  you. A basic knowledge of what  is involved can save you trouble  and money.  The usual way of shipping  household goods is by moving  van and Consumers' Association  advises that you should ask for  and investigate references of the  firms you intend asking to submit estimates. A reputable firm  will have no objection to supplying you with the names of a  few of their clients and you can  check with these people for information on the type off service  supplied by the firm. Shop for  movers just as carefully as you  do for other services.  Moving companies will supply  you with a free estimate on the  approximate cost oif your move.  Be suspicious of any unreasonably low bids. On a normal- long  distance move, a trained estimator can judge' the charges  fairly accurately but you must  realize that this1 is not a final  figure ��� just an educated guess.

Paickting and extra insurance are  two to take into consideration.  Packing is available for both  local and long distance moves  and the charge as usually by  the container. You can pare your  bill if you do some of your own  paCfcing ��� but remeanber, an  owner-packed carton is your res>-  iponsibility. It will be -marked  "owner-packed" on the inventory. Full responsibility can only  be accepted by the carrier when  packing is done by the company.  Most people feel that once  their household goods are in the  carrier's possession, the firm is  finawcially responsible for them'.  Nothing could be farther from  the truth. Just. 30 cents per  pound "released ��� value" is the  maximum for which movers are  liable for loss or damage to  goods for both local and long  distance moves. It is wise to  consider bringing your protection closer to full -coverage'. You  should receive a copy of the  agreement cavering your declaration of value and the amount  should appear on the face of the  bill of lading before you sign it.  On the day of the- move, you  or someone in authority should  supervise the moving. The movers will make notes on the con-  dition -oif your furniture and you  will be asked to sign to show  agreement that some things are  marredl, scratched or chipped.  If you do not agree with these  remarks, now is the time to discuss it, not after the move.  On delivery day, you or your  authorized agent must be on  hand when the movers arrive.  Supervise the unloading and indicate where each of the larger  articles of furniture should be  placed. When- the furniture is unloaded, you should inspect it to  see if there isi any adddtiona-  damage. You will be asked to  sign a form saying you have received and inspected the goods.  If you haven't had time to really look it over, write on the form  "subject to hidden damage" and  note any visible damage or loss  in writing. Your notations do not  constitute a claim but are merely a record of fact. The mover  can deny -a claim- if damage or  loss is not noted at the time of  delivery.  As an dndluatry, the moving  people in Canada seem to honestly try to dp a professional  job. If there is one: guiding rule  to cover all aspects of -moving  from your point of view, it is to  be aggressive and read the fine  print.  Unless you have arranged  otherwise, you will be expected  to pay in full for your mov)e  when the furniture is unloaded.  Some carriers are getting into  the installment field but cash,  money order or certilfied cheque  ���is usually required.

PI E R R E, M P  People used to go to London  to see the Queen. Now one goes  to Williams Lake.  To receive an invitation from  the Mayor and council of Williams Lake to meet Her Majesty is an occurrence I would have  considered unlikely a few years  back. When I first slaw WdlMams  Laike, the place was so small  that when they held a parade,  there was hardly anybody left to  watch it.  Today, on the Stampede  grounds, a couple of thousand  people at a modest count ���  Brownies, Girl Guides, old  friends from the Senior Citizensi'  home, young friends from Col-,  umneetza school, earnestly asking questions to wfhicih I don't  have answers; cowboys, ranchers, loggers, Indian chiefs, house  wives and children running in  shoals like horning.  There are three barbecues of  beef. Ribs are1 staked Argentine-  style, over firepits. Two masses  of beef are underground steaming in pit barbecues. Half a com  is turning over an open fire.  The receiving line ��� a dreary  bore, surely, which Royal families have endured across more  generations than they would  care to thirik about. Williams  ��� Lake keeps it mercifully short.  In a few minultes, we troop up to  the Visitors1 Box alt the Stampede grounds. Her Majesty and  His Royal Highness sit with Jim  Carson, the 1971 Stampede Association president, and Bruce  Watt, the vice-president. They  explain why all the high school  students are being piled in the  bareback and the steer riding.  The riders are not-professionals.  They're young people out for  some fun.  The Royal couple walk back to  the barbecue pits, chatting with  the old and the young who line  up behind the slender yellow  nylon cord that marks their path  Her Ma'jesty carries a bouquet,  presented her by the town. lit  was meant for her Lady in Waiting. Hers was larger. But her  ca��r arrived unexpiectedly early  on the grounds and somebody  grabbed the first bunch off -lowers at hand. It serves just as  well.  Some Brownies paiss her and  the prince boxes of Brownie  cookies. Or are they called Girl  Guide Cookies? Whichever, there  will be enough cookies for the  guests in Buckingham Palace  for the next little while.  The sun is warm-. Wind1 whips  the dust around us occasiohally  but what is a Stampede if you  don't chew some dust? Some  people in this country were very  big boys before they found out  there was anything else to eat.  COAST-CHWCOTIN  Thejown is short on neckties,  boiled shirts and speeches, but  there is enough grace and ease  to go around. ~  The main- receiving line is  formed shortly before they depart when the high school stur  dents who rode in the rodeo line  up, by Her Majesty's request,  and she and Prince Philip move  down the line, chatting with each  of them. Two of them have ban-  dlaged arms, having gone  straight from the grounds for  the first aid post. Some boys  are uncertain what to do with  their hats. Some take them oHf.  Others press the brim with the  palm of their hand and leave it  on their heads, which is traditionally correct although possibly not usual for Royalty.  Then the Royal couple depart  in the big black car, and the  Royal Standard comes down.  Now it is hours later in Big  Creek on the Chiicotin plateau.  The cabin I left with the door  unlocked remains clean. Whoever last used it split his.share  of firewood.  There is not a pack rat to be  smelled. not a* diesel engine or  car horn to be heard. The moon  over Squirrel Mountain is almost at the. full.  Tomorrow, 400 odd miles driving to Vancouver and then 2,500  into Ottawa by a jet. Hopefully,  not the Cardiac Special.

Is this  professional misconduct on his  part? Can he be suspended from  practice?  Answer: Generally speaking,  yes, but the decision of the discipline committee of the Medical Association on this point and  the punishment to be awarded,  that is, whether the doctor is to  be suspended from practice or  not, will depend on a number of  factors, such as, where the intimate relations took place and  under what circumstances, your  wife's age and state of health,  whether she enticed or lured the  doctor, etc. But why bother with  this ��� if you can prove they had  intimate relations why not just  sue them both for a divorce?  The doctor will have to pay the  costs.  Q. My wife and I were quarrelling and she went to a lawyer and they started to go  around together and she stayed  with him overnight, etc. Can I  get him disbarred? Isn't this unethical conduct on his part?  A. No ��� why not just sue  them both for a divorce? The  lawyer will1 have to pay the costs  Q. My husband committed  adultery but I forgave him and  took him back. Now we are quarrelling again. Can I sue him for  divorce on the grounds of the  adultery?  A. Probably not. You have  condoned (that is, fcrgiven) the  matrimonial offence. There are,  however, exceptions to this gen-  WHY NOT BUILD  THE EASY-LOG WAY?

See your lawyer for  this specific problem.  Q. My wife committed adultery but I didn't know about it  and we lived together until I  found out about it. I now hear I  can't sue her for a divorce because I condoned the adultery.  Is this right?  A. No. We assume you and  your wife had intimate relations  after the adultery but this does  not amount to condonation unless they took-place after you  learned of her disloyal conduct.  You may now sue for a divonce,  and costs, against her lover, if  he knew her to be a married woman at the time of their misconduct.  Q. My husband and I separated and signed a separation  agreement arrived at by our  lawyers. Since then, I learned  that my husband had committed  adultery before we separated. I  don't know how I can prove it  as toeevddence is scanty. Can I  sue for a divonce?  A- Yes. As to the proof, your  lawyer will examine your husband and his lover for discovery  This is a procedure which does  not take place before a judge.  The respondents (the parties  sued) must appear with their  lawyers (if they are so represented) before a court recorder.  The only other persons present  will be you and your lawyer.  Your lawyer will cross examine  them under oath, that is, ask  them any and all questions about  afbout their behavior and they  must answer. Don't assume  they will perjure themselves.  They don't know that you don't  possess all sorts of corroborating evidence. If they deny it  they could be changed with perjury in a criminal court (but this  would, of course, require strict  proof for them to be convicted.  If you can't prove the adultery  at the divorce trial, you losie,  but your husband would nevertheless normally be ordered to  pay your costs.  Liberal executive  Norman Watson of Sechelt was  named president of the Sunshine  Coast Liberal Association at its  recent meeting in Sechelt, when  it met the new provincial leader  Mel Couvelier.

These new  teams will be playing exhibition  games but it is hoped that they  will be in the league next year.  During the warm-up- the field  was a maze of colored hats representing the many teaims in  Gibsons- as Mends- came to  watch and! cheer. There were  some good plays made even  though many boys were participating in their very first game.  There was a little confusioCns  twice with both teams when  two players landed on the same  base but recovered in time to  be called safe, and once when a  coach discovered a vacancy in  the field only to find his fielder  standing beside him.  The support at the games is  gratifying and those who haven't  attended a game yet are really  missing something. There are  now over 50 boys in the Gibsons  area playing on a baseball team  who would not be involved at all  except for the concern of many  individuals, Gibsons' Athletic Association and most importantly  the generous support of the  booming grounds, .log sorting  companies and others in this  area!
