As a result "of this fire Sechelt .  is without a movie house. The  land on which the theatre was  situated is zoned for residential  purposes. As the theatre was  there (before the area was zoned  it became non-corifonming and  was allowed to operate until  such time as it closed for 30  days. As it is not possible to  hatve a theatre operating within  the 30 day period, the land will  become residential only.

This group of companies have been so very enthusiastic, willing helpers and  generous with financial support.

The idea oif a suitable building  for meetings, badlminton .and  dancing was born in 1931 and  money was collected-for a starting fund. In those, bleak days of  poverty, with no payroll in the  district, the small group of res- -  idents found their project too  ambitious and regretfully refunded the donations.  The following year determination grew with the continued  need of a hall and again a campaign was started to" collect  funds. Door to door canvassing  took place, for dimes and quarters, ^dances were held at the  two school houses where admission was ,25c for men andi, refreshments for women and the  music was donated. The energy  and enthusiasim of volunteer.  ��� workers, w:th $100, donations of  tools, nails, use of a truck,  brought about": the completion of  the sills; and first floor.  Land for the; hall was donated  by the Date John Roberts and the  Farmers' Institute became its  board of directors. In the fall of  1933 ��� work w��is-resumed and every available man was pressed  into service. It is well to remember that all work was done  by hand in those.days, both at  home and at the hall, and the  laborers   were   already   weary  from their land-clearing and efforts to make a living from  their land.  Still tihe hall was completed  and the grand opening day took  place on May 24, 1934. Everybody and his uncle came from  "miles around and the handsome  amount of $140 was taken in at  the usual rate of 25c for men.  ���And what refreshments the ladies brouight, cakes rich with  hoime-made butter and iced with  whippedcream, sandwiches of  homemade bread and home cured Aham, boiled coffee with gobs  of Devonshire cream-. Music was  provided by Mrs. M. Horsley,  WifMartow, Elsie Steihbrunner  and festivities were prolonged  for into the night.  Soon a kitchen was added on  and in 1944 the Roberts Creek  Players Club gave considerable  assistance to the iboardl for a  staige which was completed in  May.  In 1950 the deed to the hall  was taken over (by an incorporated Hall board under the Societies Act with the late Mrs.  Jessie Hughes as is first president. Successive boards battled  valiantly to keep the hall solvent. Rising costs, added necessities and a fickle public caused  many sleepness nights- but despite many setbacks an oil furnace replaced the original wood  heater, water hot and1 cold was  laid' on, plumbing was brought  inside, new siding was added,  paint applied.  At one point a despairing  board decided to sell or scrap  the building. Then in March 1962  the Elphinstone Recreation Association came to the rescue and  rented the hall on a yearly basis, sufficient to cover all expenses. They conduct the Tuesday Binigo games and take care  of hall rentals.  And the old hall sits back benignly^ confident that she will  continue to be a useful member  of society arid- a monument to  all those determined workers  who were responsible for her.  BOTTLE DRIVE  Gibsons Scouts and Cubs; will  hold their final bottle drive of  the season on- Saturday, June 5.

W  ection  costs rising  says  The contract Ibetween Sechelt  council and the Regional District  board covering operations of the  Regional District building inspector as Sechelt building inspector will be changed if Sechelt decides to continue using  the Regional District inspector.  The firianct committee considered the existing contract with  7 the vVillage7of Sechelt for provision of building inspection ser-  %-i.ces. The1 contract which was  -riiade in 1969 on an expeximen-  talbas-sfbr one; year; extendable from year to year  =7;t*2��-a-^  notice; Tnas ip^ved yiScy ��KisQd-  yantageous to the district with  themunicipality not only saving  themselves  the  employment oif  a building inspector but obtaining, in the committee's opinion,  a nice surplus from the permits.  The inspector has to devote a  considerable time on permits for  themunicipality, the- ma jar part  of this cost to be borne by the  electoral areais.  The finance comimittee, therefore, recommended to the board  that the secretary be instructed  to send a letter of termination  to Sechelt council' with the proposal that the contributions of  Secheilt to the building inspection service be either 7  (a) a flat sum of $1,000 plus  $10 for each building permit is>-  sued .per year; or  (b) joins the Regional District in the ifunction of building  inspection on the same basis as  the other electoral areas:  If alternative (a) is elected,  the contract to be continued on  an annual basii�� except if terminated with a three months' notice.  In case of (b), until the Village  of Sechelt gives three months'  notice to the end of a fiscal  year, that it does not wish any  longer to participate in ithe function but will appoint their own  buildi-iig inspector.

Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.  Long live Marine Drive!  It is interesting to note that at a Gilbsons council meeting at  the end of May, in 1966, Councillor Jaanes Drummond moved and  Councillor Fred Feeney .seconded a motion which was passed without opposition to name Gower Point Road Marine Drive.,  This new Marine Drive would traverse the present Gower Point  road from the Shell Station to the Rits Motel corner, then on  through Dpugal, Headlands and Franklin Roads to where it would  meet Gower Point road. The proposal would make Gower Point  Road Prowse Road from the Hits Motel corner to the Stewart and!  Fletcher Roads corner. Gower Point Road would start at that  point.  The argument in favor stressed the ease with which directions  could be given in comparison with the diverse directions of Gower  Point Road in the village. There is also the anomaly of having two  homes in Gower Point road bearing the saim-e house numbers. One  faces the waterfront and the other just around the corner faces  the Hits Motel.  This came from Coast News files of five years ago. If it was a  good idea then and is in.the form of a motion on Gibsons municipal records why not put it into effect?  Grow up and go home!  Judge Philip Gilliam of Denver, Colo., recently gave some ad-  vic to the young people of his ca_nm_mity which is worth repeating.  It was given by way of an answer to the cry of many high  school age boys and girls, "What can we do? Where can we  go?"  "Go home," the judge says, "Hang the storm windows, paint  the woodwork, rake the leaves, mow the lawn, shovel snow, wash  the car, learn to cook, Scrub floors, repair the sink, build a boat,  get a job, help your minister, priest or rabbi, visit the sick, help  the poor, study your lessons and when you are through ��� and not  too tired ��� read a good book.  "Your parents do not owe you entertainment. Your city or village does not owe you recreational facilities. The world does not  owe you a living. You owe the world something. You owe it your  time and energy and talents so that no one will be at war or In  poverty or sick or lonely again.  "in plain words, GROW UP, quit being a cry baby, get out of  your dream world, and develop a back-bone not a wish-bone and  start acting like a iman or a lady.  "You're supposed to be mature enough to accept some of the  responsibility your parents have carried for years. They have nursed; protedted, helped, appealed, begged, excused, tolerateid1 and denied themselves many things so that you could have every benefit.  "This they have done gladly, for you are their dearest treasure. But now, you have no right to expect them to bow to every  whim and fancy .just because selfish ego instead of common sense  dominates your personality, thinking and requests. In Heaven's  name, grow up and go home.',' (Contributed.)  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons council passed a motion to rename Gower Point road  Marine Drive, within the village.  Sam Fladager annoiunced that  Gibsons Centennial plans for an  Olympic size swimming pool  have been forwarded to Ottawa.

"  Editor: The dedication of Pioneer Park combined with the  presentations of medallions to  local pioneers was most enjoyable and I offer sincere congratulations to Mr. Ross Gibson  and others for their part in the  ceremonies.  However, I must bring to attention the fact that the one person responsible for the.-' Park to  have become a reality has not in  any way been honored or for  that matter, mentioned.  It was 13 years ago that Eileen. Glassford started what was  to become a long and arduous  struggle to have just such a  place of rest both for living  members of the community and  the remains of the pioneer Gibson family buried within the tiny  graveyard'. When plans weire  made to remove the graves to  another cemetery and have that  piece of property used for a com  mercial venture, it was Eileen  Glassford who appeared1 before  the village council, local church  officials and finally a Public  Utilities Commission hearing and  pleaded the cause.  When my children and I enjoy  the beauty of the little park and  see others sharing the benefits,  we will not be thinking of the  dignitaries who attended the  dedication ceremonies but rather of the woman who fought  the good fight and won.  ���V_OLI_T WINEGARDEN       . *  The following has been sent to  Charles Gooding, secretary-  treasurer, Sunshine Coast Regional District:  Sir: Re: Construction Aggregate industrial development.  The type of industrial development proposed by Construction  Aggregate is absolutely unnecessary to the economic well-being  of the Sunshine Coast.  It will prove in the end to be  a disastrous detriment to the development of one of our main in-  industries, tourism.  We will be deprived of the attractions that draw praise from  people from all parts of the  world. This is attested to by the  many letters appearing more  and more frequently in our local  papers. The natural surroundings and attractive unspoiled  beauty have also led many people to invest in land with the  view to eventually residing in  this unexcelled area.  I oppose the gravel mining development absolutely and strong-  For Real Estate on the  K. CROSBY  Sunshine Coast  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

Secretary-Treasurer,  Sunshine Coast Regional District  Sir: Re Construction Aggregates1 application for a foreshore  lease and application, to lease  Crown land in the area of the  Sunshine Coast and specifically  in the Sechelt and Selma Park  * area for the purpose of strip  gravel mining and loading facilities;  Since the tourist trade is supposedly the second largest industry in this province and our  Sunshine Coast environment is  uniquely suited to that particu-  ' lar development, I am surprised that you would consider any  thing that would detract from  tourism and recreation. It is  with this thought iri mind that I  add my voice in protest to the  proposed gravel operation, as I  feel certain Vhat it will endanger  our growing tourist and residential vacation industry.  I would also like to draw your  attention to Premier Bennett's  comment on page 23 Of this  year's budget speech:  "The cumulative effect of  large scale pollution, especially  by industrial nations is now one  of the world's major problems.  The tendency in this area has  been to act upon the conaMon  after Ibe problem has developed  and the environiment damaged.  The government of British Columbia is acting now to preserve  the province's healthful climate  and abundance of unspoiled recreation areas;  "The- problem of pollution how  ever, is everyone's responsibi'li-  ty.  The collective effort of all  levels of government, business,  and industry, and the individual  citizen is required to safeguard  British    Columbia's     surround  ings."  Your proposal for a gravel operation can in no way improve  this area and should be repugnant to even those of you with  the least esthetical appreciation.  If the available water supply is  to be used for this operation,  what will be used if the population growth;continues as is anti-  oiipat-el? Or is it the intention of  the board that the gravel operation should 7reduce the rate of  growth of this area for. recrea  tional purposes?  It has been suggested by some  of my friends' that this is an  Indian project and that I would  not be interested if it were just  wha;tc_;|pien who were going to  getf&yih' iby it: I would probably  applaud it, if it were just that:  an Indian project; because I am  sure that if it were, they would  have more concern for the natural state of the land and  beaches. I have talked1 to native  people who fear for fishing, oyster beds, erosion and flooding  of the land of the reserve should  the land be stripped and water  retaining elements be removed.  With hopes- that sanity will  prevail and vested monetary interests'be forsaken, I raise my  voice. I have a vested interest  also, as have we all, in the  need' for a srhallj cleain part of  the world in which to live and  raise our children*. 7 7  ���������,'���R. V.

PI E R R E, M P  COAST-CHBLCOTIN  SETON PORTAGE ��� This was  a portage on the original Cari-  ,, boo Trail to the goMfields, used  before the Fraser Canyon route  was more than a gleaon in some  engineer's eye.  The portage was across a narrow ridge of gravel, about he_��lf  a mile wide, separating Anderson Lake from Seton Lake. The  miners built rail tracks across  it to transport their gear from  boat to boat. It might be called  British Columbia's first railroad,  except that it had no loeomotive.  ��� The carts rolled on the little  narrow gauge line either by  horsepower or by the Armstron-g  method.  Last Saturday, on an evening  as1 chilly as charity, Martin Paul  of Seton Portage Reserve and  I decide that this would1 be a  lot better and-finer world if we  caught a few trout. There might  be better things for us to do. We  could! have deplored the war in  Viet Nam or debated the ominous possiiibilities of overpopulation, drugs ^and'������- Women's Lib.  But we didn't do that. We tried  fishing mstead'.  Martin has a red and white  plywood boat and1 an outboard  motor that fires up on the first  crank of the wheel. I have never  seen an- outboard like this' before.  All the outboard motors with  which I previously associated  were like chain saw motors- and  lawnmowers, guaranteed to lift  a man's charter membership in  the Holy Name Society. It was  worth flying 2,500 from Ottawa  and driving another 250 to discover that, somewlhere in this  troubled world, there actually  exisits a cold outboard motor  which starts on the first pull of  the rope.  So we ehuttered over the  mouth of the river and threw  out the anchor and watched the  cold wind from the snows- on  Mission mountain rip at the apple blossisoms of the old orchards on the sihore. We rigged the  spinning rods and threw out Red  Devils and Crocodiles for the interests*, of any Rainbows or Dollies who might care for such  geegaws.  Anderson Lake j hidden from.,  our view by the trees on the Portage, is clear. Seton is- not. The  tunnel which' feeds water to  B.C. Hydro's turbines brings  d-own a jade green water from  the BridigeTRiver. -  "Used; to be,", saifdl Martin*,  "we could look down in this water and see fish, big -fish-, sturgeons, way down on the bottom.  But when the tunnels' went  through it aJl went cloudy."  The coloring comes from what  is called' rock flour, ground out  5>y glaciers at the headwaters  of the Bridge River. It obscures  the view of the bottom, but the '*  color is vividly beautiful.  We cast to the line which separated the clear water of the  river from the green water of  the lake. Nothing much happen- r  ed, except that our hands be-'  came numb and the cigaret supply ran short as the black shadows walked down the sides of  the mountain., to where we drifted in the rustling waters off the  river mouth.  Martin talked about the high  country. He had, some years-  ago, made a memorable trip in  these mountains. They had ridden saddle horses up the trails  which switchback to the timber-  line and then leave the rider to  wander over the wide alpine  meadows. There are sheep there  goats, deer, ptarmigan and flowers beyond the ability of man to  count.  We talked about this fairyland  so remote, that lay a mere five  miles distant in horizontal measurement but which could be  reached only by long planning  and hard packing and time  which we didn't have.  As always in such conversations, each of us visualized such  a trip in the eye of the mind,  for this summer, or the next, or  the one after. But we knew they  seldom come in this busy world.  The inlet of the river "from  Anderson has windrows of dead  fish on the banks and the bottom. "Onishee," said Martin.  "The Indian word for them  means floater. They come up  and spawn, then they puff up  and float ashore and die." This  little picket of the British Columbia mountains' is one of the few  areas where these strange little  fisih- exist. They are, I am told,  a land-locked humpback salmon  which has made its own peculiar adaptation to life in the  mountains.  Martin wanted to know how  I liked parliament, but as I recall a rainbow hit about that  time and we never did get back  to the subject. Parliament must  be imiporant. Everybody says; it  is, and that many people can't  be wrong. But in the river, while  the cold black blanket of the .  night came down around our  shoulders, we only fished and  talked about days to come in the  shining meadows of the  country:  high  Hi  UG'S  APPLIANCES  Speed Queen  Sales & Service  Gibsons  A Complete Stock of Paris  Specializing in Speed Queen Service  Phone 886-7244 days; after 6 -886-7560   YOU'RE  SmiLinG CALL FOR  LflDHTT'S BLUE'  m This advertisement is not published or displayed by the Liquor Control Board or by the Government of British Columbia Coast News, June 2, 1971.       ftORK   WANT��   (COIlfd)  COAST HEWS CLASSIFIED ADS  Deadline ��� Tuesday noon  4c a word, Minimum 75c  Subsequent Insertions Yz price  Box Numbers 25c  25c added for bookkeeping on  ads   not  paid one  week  after  insertion.

These four projects will be the first of a number  of Personal Care Homes to be constructed in  centres across the Province.  The .design should meet the requirements of  elderly,persons;needing a measure of personal-  care   and   nursing   supervision.   The   design  should  generally follow a written  functional  program, provided   by  the   British   Columbia  Government.  Lands .and necessary services to the site boundary will be provided by the British Columbia  Government.  VARIETY OF TERMS  Proponents must be prepared to enter into an  agreement to provide appropriate services in  connection with a design and set of working  drawings and to accept responsibility for cost  limits.  If construction is also proposed, the submission  must indicate a firm price at which construction  would be undertaken and give firm dates for  completion of construction. In the event a proposal for design, working drawings, and construction were accepted, it is anticipated two  agreements would be entered into, one contract  in respect of design and working drawings, and  another contract for the construction phase.  Any or all proposals may not necessarily be  accepted. ^  Deposits are not required at the time of submission but upon acceptance of a proposal, the  customary practices as to deposits and bonds  will prevail.  Proposals will be examined by, and final selection if any will be with, the Government of British  Columbia.  HOME-LIKE ATMOSPHERE  Proposals will be judged by how best the needs  for suitability for care and a homelike atmosphere are balanced against the requirements  for economy of operatioa and capital cost control. Other matters to consider will be construction quality and starting and completion  schedules.  Sealed proposals in duplicate clearly marked  "Proposal for Personal Care Homes" will be  received until 2:00 p.m. on Monday, July 5,1971,  at the office of:  Dr. A. A. Larsen,  Health Branch, Department of Health 7  Services & Hospital Insurance,  Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.

GOVERNMENT OF THE PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  Department of Public Works  Honourable W. N. Chant,  Minister  Department of Health Services &  Hospital Insurance  Honourable R. R. Loff mark,  Minister A problem in water financin;  Gibsons co-uneil in withdlraw-  inig from -the Regional- District  water reserve fund has- created  increased water costs for "the  Regional District and also for  Gibsons as it requdre�� use of  Regional District water. Gibsons was assessed $5,000 for the  reserve fund. ������'���  This isi revealed in a (report  last Thursday to the Regional  board by its finance committee. The report readb as follows:  The finance committee has  again checked the legality of the  budget requisition with legal  counsel and its opinion was coh-  firaned. Unfortunately thte B.C.  Municipal Act does not provide  any machinery to test the legality xrf the one or other position  and we have to submit to dte-  I>a.rtmental decisions without  ���question.  : There is very little room for  -fafmusetment about our present  ;; positron. To the best knowledge  of the committee this matter  arose if rom a telephone conver-  nii-cipal adiministration and the  sation between the Gibsons mu-  department of municipal affairs  during which the $5,000 assessment <was protested. Gibsons mu-  nicipaldty disclaimed benefit  from the water -services- covered  by the loan for which a reserve  fund had to be ���created.  On reflection there is difficulty in understanding this position.  It was originally agreed between  the district and the municipality  of Gibsons that in view of Gibsons water need�� in the near future we would jointly develop  the district water resources, the  municipality taking a share right  in the beginning. After their  change of position it has to Ibe  realized .that in narrowing the  tax basis on which the. reserve  fund -can ibe raised, ultimate water costs have to go up and bulk  water to-be sold later will be  dearer..  Furthermore, the municipality  has an application with the Municipal Finance Authority for  their sewage loan for which a  reserve (fund of approxalmately  $20,000-$22,000 has to be Created.  This would have briought up the  total regional reserve fund to  approximately $82,0007 of which,  on the present assessment levels  Gibsons municipality would have  had 8% chipped in, or a total of  $6,600. On the- now changed basis' of benelfiitting areas-, Gibsons  Council will have to find an- extra $15,000, which otherwise  would have been Carried by the  rest of the Region.  If wei as suggested by the department, atild! the .reserve fund,  to the main loan we are in a  double predicament:  We have committed1 moire or  less' our total, $1,500,000, allowing1 for issorme reasoriatole -discount  to Ifuture waterworks expansion.  We can, as offered ito -us), request the minister to increase  the loan by $60,000, plusi discount  and pay it (back over 25 years at  a tqtal cost of $141,000. In such  case we shall be the proud owners oif a reserve fund1 in 25 years  At that time, when we do not  need it any longer having-repaid  the loan anyway, -we would have  paid an extra $90,000 or -more  for precisely nothing.  However, the matter .becomes  worse when we would have to  obtain about $6,000 per annum  without creating any (revenue  producing assets. As our revenue  presently does not fulliy cover  our debt service for the next two  or three years, and anticipating  accelerating growth in participation!, any additional cost would  either create a greater deficit  or would require irate changes1.  Both alternatives: are intolerable  at this time.  The Ifinance committee, therefore, recommends the board  raise the reserve fund !by a short  teum bank loan, separate from  the waiter (function,  and repay  this loan by a special levy of Yi  mill in the participating areas  B, C, D, E, and F and the pair-  tdicipaitoi-g municipality .off-. Sie-  chelt. This would be permissible  under section 766 of the Municipal1 Act which allows the- creation of special puirpbse -funds by  imposition of levies1 up to Y2 mill  wathoult plebiscite. Present as-  sessments would allow revenues  of approximately $15,000 ,per annum so that the loan could foe  repaid in the- fifth year at a cost  of about $12,000 instead of $90,-  000 if added'to the loan.       ,  Once this loan is paid back  by the benefitting areas a look  should be taken whether a gen-"  era! sreserve fund for special local financing should be considered for all electoral areas and1 the  municipalities of -V4 mull for fire  protection and other -minor capital requirements- presently not  obtainable through the Municipal  Finance Authority.  As far as the reserve ifui_d of  $60,000 is concerned, the secretary has. requested guidance  from the department of imuniici-  pal affairs but no answer is available at this time. The finance  committee will, if the board approves, have the necessary bylaw for the loan and subsequent  special levy of Y2 mill prepamed  for the next meeting.

The commiittee also recommended a three year conitratet be considered when the term of the  present contract expires July 15,  1972. This (would allow better  planning for the repilaicement of  equipment.  When the recommendations  came before the Regional board  at last Thursday's; meeting, the  board agreed to the monthly increase and expanded contract.  The committee also suggested) that some plan 'be devised  for the disposal of about 30Q  derelict automobiles each year  from dump sates where congestion wall (be acute in the near  future.  Another matter was; the cost of  maintaining dump sites and  roads leading to them, also the  poss-ilbility -of having a central incinerator.

I see this  in all deeds* and agreement�� for'  sale. Doesn't the buyer just own  the land?  Answer: No. The fee simple is  the largest interest or greatest  number of rights' a person can  have in land. Only the Crown  can own land as.such. It is in-  afceurate to say that an individual owns- land but this expression is commonly used, even by  lawyers. It is a useful sort of  slang express-ion for owning the  most, or the highest interest in  land that is possible.  If an individual could own land  outright, he would own it down  to the centre o!f the earth and  the air space above it, out into  space indefinitely. This, however, is not the case. The Crown  may reserve icertaih sub surface  mineral rights. Generally under-:  ground (or surface) water cannot be diverted, used or poisoned at will. One cannot complete^  iy control the aJr space over  one's land. Also, the ifee simple  to land may be expropriated by  the Crown.  Another similar common col-  WANT SOMETHING DONE!

PHILIP GORDON  CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT  Room 208, Harris Block  Gibsons  Ph. Bus. 886-2714; Res. 886-7567  (Copyright)  loquialisim is to say that a person owns land clear title. This  simply means owning the Fee  Simple. This gives rise to the  question of What rights a person  can own in land that are less  than the fee simple. Examples  aire: A (mortgagor's rights under  a mortgage, a seller under an  agreement for sale, a buyer under an agreement for sale, a  mortgagee under a mortgage.  All these persons may, asi assignors, assign their rights to  others who become assignees,  for example, an assignee \ol a  purchaser under an aigreement  for sale.  Also, there may be a sub  agreement for sale or a second,  third or fourth mortgage, etc.  An occupier such as a mortgagor or buyer under an agree--  ment for sale may lease and he  is the landlord andi the tenant  would then acquire certain  rights. Persons' on another's property on business by implied invitation such as- a customer in  a shop have certain rights to be  protected agaiais dangerous pre-  'mises'. House guests have similar, but less extensive rights'.  Finally, even the lowly trespasser has some rights. Land1 includes the buildings on the land  ��� except some moveable structure such as* a shed on skids.  Q. Can you stop planes from  flying over your land?  A. You may indeed be able to  do this. No definite distance for  control of air space'over an occupier's land can be laid down.  It depends on the degree to  which the occupier's reasonable  use and enjoyment of his land  has been interfered' with. Mink  breeders have obtained injunctions prohibiting aircraft from  flying too close to the ground  over the land occupied by them  because the noise of the aircraft  interferes with the breeding process.  Q. My husband and I have  separated. We are joint tenants  by the land registry records but  he has mortgaged his half. I  thought I would inherit his half  of the land when he died but now  I hear maybe I won't. Can't you  rely on Land Registry records?  A. No ��� that is, they need  interpretation by a lawyer. The  joint tenancy has been converted into a tenancy-in-common.  The beneficiary under his will  will inherit his interest in the  land. We agree that the records  are very misleading.  Q. What is the difference between an aigreement for sale  and a right to purchase?  A. None ��� A right to purchase is the Land Registry's  way of referring to an agreement for sale. '  Q. I searched some land out  in the Land Registry office and  asked the clerk there some ques*  tions. Then I went to a lawyer  and he told me different.  Shouldn't they both knotw what  they are talkng about?  A. The clerk's function is- not  to give legal advice. He will probably be going only by the Land  Registry Act. Thisi is not a complete gathering together of all  our land law or even a small  part of it. It is only the top of  the iceberg. Take your lawyer's  advice. lO     Coast'News, June 2, 1971  BASEBALL  For the third time in as many  meetings- iPender Harbour Tyees  defeated the Howe Sound Boom-  men at Pender Harbour Sunday.
