The matter came up at Thursday night's meeting last week  and the board passed a motion  which supports the idea of permitting the association the use  of school facilities and equipment as per policy after a joint  discussion with the staff and association to determine the extent  of use.  A request for the remission of  the rental paid for the association dance on July 3 was refer  red to the finance committee for  its consideration.  Chairman Sheila -Kitsfon re4  viewed the report on an inspection of Gibsons elementary open  area facilities made by Mr.  Dickenson, ithe department of  education's supervisor of planning and construction.

The swimming program was  organized by Terry Connor,  sports chairman and Miss Denise Littlejohn, swimming director. The instructor, Miss.. Pat  Barter and assistant instructor.  Miss Linda Jackson, registered  over 200 children at Roberts  Creek, Gibsons and' Hopkins  Landing for swimming lessons.  Eleven young people from the  Sunshine Coast Youth Centre  spent six hours clearing glass,  rocks and debris from the beach  at Hopkins Landing and Gibsons  Armour's Beach���this improved the instruction area; considerably.  The swimming program next  year will include lifeguards at  the beaches and competitive  swimiming teams, provided more  funds are available. A competitive swimming team would be  greatly handicapped by our lack  of proper facilities (heated  swimming pool) but they would  have the opportunity of being  trained and participate in a competitive program. An enthusiastic community behind these children would certainly help even  the odds.  Fire Chief .Glen^ Kraus  rSnas-^-b-^^^ceMmpriie^-RoD-*  ���" erts Creek new fireball .containing three trucks was officially  dedicated with a ribbori cutting  and unveiling of a plaque. The  chief was introduced by Hank  Schachte.  Chief Kraus commented on  the voluntary labors of many  people who started the building  along with the aid through generous donations from many of  the same people. Assistant Fire  Chief Ches Day added words of  commendation to all who helped.  Ron McSavaney thanked the  firemen for their devotion to  their early training plus later"  practices and the amount of  work that had (been done to  equip the department.  Harry Almond, the Regional  District board representative for  the Roberts Creek area found  the event very gratifying.  Presentations were made to  Miss E. Harrold who donated  the land for the firehall and to  the original fire chief, Stan Rowland. The plaque commemorated  the donation of Miss Harrold.  Miss Harrold in her dedication  remarks said:  "When we first came to Roberts Creek nearly 17 years ago  we heard that the residents had  subscribed inoney to buy fire-  fighting equipment and a volunteer fire fighting group had been  formed. I never heard of them  in   action   arid   the   equipment,,.  ^seemed^tb ifade^  yearsl We have been through the'������  sad experience of three families  losing their hoines and all their  belongings and the loss of our  school ��� and having to stand by  helpless.  "I arii sure we all feel most  gratified to the men and women  who have worked hard to get a  really effective group together.  I know a little of the numerous  difficulties and frustrations they  had especially during the winter months when they had no  place to house the fire equipment and they had to be kept  ready to function at any moment.  "It is indeed a great thing for  the co-immunity to now have men  and women and equipment that  can deal with any emergency;  it not only gives us a feeling of  -security, it has also reduced our  insurance rates.  "I was very pleased to be able  to donate land for the hall and  I am. deeply touched that it was  decided to designate it as a memorial to my brother.  "May I take this opportunity  to thank all those who have  made the building of the hall  possible and especially to thank  all who have given of their time  and laibor week by week to prepare to meet any emergency.  "I have great pleasure in officially opening the hall today."  to  Time for Guides and Scouts  Child drowns  off old wharf  Yiulanda Mary Craigan, aged  three, fell from the disused  wharf at Sechelt at albout 7 p.m.  Sunday evening where, she was  playing with other children.  George Flay of Sechelt, a Scuba diver strived to recover the  body but it was not located until  next morning when it drifted to  .shore. There will be no inquest  but an inquiry will be held.  The wharf which has been the  -subject of aldermanic concern  for several months has been regarded as ar menace and strong  efforts were made to have it dismantled without success.

We are living in a mixed-up world! There is no doubt about it!  Unemployment appears to be rife in many sections and is at its  highest level in Canada and U.S. and quite likely in other countries  as well.  On the other hand, f we take Canada for example thjere is  more money available than ever before. Take a look at the Canadian Bankers' Association current banking statisticsi up to midsummer of this year. Here is what the CBA revealed in its survey:  The banks' assets grew by a greater percentage in the 1960's  than in any ten-year period since Confederation, from $16,917 billion at Dec. 31, 1960 to $50,082 billion at June 30, 1971.  At August 11, deposits readhed $32,280 million in more than 22  million accounts, with the proportion of personal savings and  other notice deposits amounting to 69.7 percent, increasing from  little more than 60 percent ten years earlier. The number of deposit  accounts increased by an average of 813,000 per year during *__e  last decade and throughout 1970 about 58,000 new personal savings  accounts were opened every month.  Total financing by banks in Canadian dollars at August 11 was  $31,096 million, or three times the figure at the end of 19601 Business loans were the largest sector of private lending, followed by  personal loans and loans to farmers, and' recently the banks became  the largest non-government source of funds for mortgage lending.  Bank staffs have increased. some 40 percent in a decade arid  now total some 94,000.. Women constitute a large rriajority ��� 68.1,,  percent of the total. Shareholders now exceed 171,000, of whom 93.2  percent are Canadian residents owning about 85 percent of all  shares. It is estimated that one Canadian in 135 owns bank stock  compared with one in 210. in 1960.  The banks' branch organizations totalled 6,540 offices at June  30, including 275 abroad. Since the end of 1961, the number has increased 1,349, including 125 new offices ajbroad. Average pef-branch  deposits doubled in the decade, from $2.4 million to the present $4.8  million. *������  The most recent Bank of Montreal monthly business, review  says strong growth (in retail sales) may be expected, to continue.  For one thing there is a backlog of potential spending resulting  from the fact that consumers kept .heir buying under tight control  last year. In Canada the increase in retail trade in 1970 was less  than 2%. In the United States the gain was only slightly better.  During the same period consumers generally enjoyed a significant  incrase in their incomes. Thus they were able to pay off debt, increase their savings and, hence, improve their future spending  capabilities.  Nearly all surveys confirm that much of the gloom that prevailed in 1969 and 1970 has disappeared and, as a result of the recent tax cuts in Canada, there has probably been a" further improvement in buying attitudes in this country.  While the strong revival in consumer spending, should soon  result in an increase in domestic output, available statistics tc"  April indicate that producers, still under the influence of recession syndrome, were reluctant to adjust production targets upwards. As a result, the recent increase in domestic demand has  been met mainly by a reduction in inventories and by an increase  in imports.  That last sentence, in view of the consumer position at the  bank, is one of the keys to the unemployment situation. With manufacturing inventories at low level the employment picture suffers.  However there does appear to be .banked money available also  more than six billion dollars salted away in Canada Savings Bonds,  so perhaps Mr. and Mrs. Public will cut loose on a spending.spree.  Facing further inflation the time to buy is now. Prices- are not reversing, as labor's demands continue to consider numbers of dollars  of greater consequence than dollar values.  It is a strange world, plenty of money plus plenty of unemployment!   Fear is our worst enemy!  5-10-20 years ago  (By DON LOCKSTEAD, NDP)  In B.C. we haveTsome of the  most beautiful and valuable land  in the world. Because of the Mediterranean like condition of the  lower coastal area, visitors are  impressed to find that in B.C.  people can still feel part of nature; not alienated from it as  others are in many parts of this  continent.'   -  Unfortunately present government policy is one of catering  to the land speculators and rich  and influential people* in indus-  'try while paying lip service to  the needs of the ordinary citizen.  Because of the political and  economic uncertainty in so much  of the world today, wealthy foreign investors consider Canada  a safe place to p&rk tt_eir excess dollars in long, term investments. One large Germancbr-  ! poration has been able to obtain  gigantic portions of B.C. real  estate at a relatively low cost  and is holding the bulk of this  property for sheer speculative  value.  Another situation is that many  large industrial corporations are  in possession of huge tracts Pf  . potentially, useful property, most  of - which they will never use.  Some of this property was picked inany years ago for practically nothing, and it is good business for these companiess to pay  the token taxes* as a* marvellous  investment from their point of  view, when one considers the  steadily rising property values  here. These companies should  have to show real need for that  land or it should revert to the  Crown and people should be able  Tto purchase it at reasonable  "rates.   ��� V ...'.77  One way to discourage the  present practice of holding large  tracts of land for speculation  would! be-to set up a^syisteari of  ���1 land taxation which would make  such speculation less profitable.  Lands which are privately held  without being used should be increasingly heavily taxed. Reasonable profits should still' be allowed for the orderly and beneficial, development of private  lands, both for industry and for  FIVE YEARS AGO  Mrs. Isabel Dawson defeated  Tony Gargrave, winning Mackenzie seat with an almost 1,300  ���majority.

'���  Certain industries! apply for  and receive large tracts of land  under lease, although they have  no intention of actually using the  * property themselves. They are,  in -effect, keeping out competition and thereby detracting from  the wealth of the province as  well as preventing employment  for people. The -leasing of land  is a good policy and should increasingly replace outright ownership, but the holding of all  leases should depend! on proper  land use and provision must -be  made for adequate supervision  of leaseholds so as to prevent  the gross abuses now occurring.  To sum up, it is my coritention-  that the following steps should  be taken:     ��� ���*������  1. Measures should be taken  to. ensure that private property  not now being put to good use  should return to the Crown, with  adequate compensation to present owners.  2. The activities of the large  land speculator should be investigated and controlled.  3. Realistic taxessshould be  imposed on privately owned land  that is lying dormant.  4.. People who wish to lease  Crown land to develop and {build  homes on, should have the opportunity to do so.  5. A systematic survey of land  use and people's needs should  toe undertaken throughout., the  province as a basis for adequate  land use legislation. It is imperative, for example, to safeguard  our agricultural Hand from.' industrial use or urban subdivision. \   '   . .  It is time to stop thinking and  acting ais if the land we live in  is 'real estate', a commodity to  be marketed for immediate profit without thought for the future, an expendable commodity  to be sold to the highest bidder.  A land and its people are inseparable and cannot continue to  prosper while either is being  ruthlessly exploited.  N. Richard McKibbin  A PERSONAL INSURANCE SERVICE  PHONE 886-2062 GIBSONS. B.C.

It was originally commissioned  in 1967 for the Holiday Centennial Commission. This play was  performed in 92 communities;  across Canada. It is an extreme- "  ly witty production dealing with  the problem of identity, Canadian or otherwise, and unveils  many fascinating and representational characters.

Many permanent press  items never need ironing during  their normal lifetime if properly  machine washed and dried. They  come out of the dryer already  pressed and stay fresh and crisp  no matter what the temperature  or humidity.  The permanent press treatment is done by giving the fabric a special finish called a resin  which is set either before or after the garment is completed.  The setting is done on high-  pressure presses or in high temperature ovens so that the finish is then permanent under  normal   wear   arid care  condi-  ; tions. This process can be applied to many fibers and blends including nylon, rayon, acetate,  polyester, cotton and even wool  and linen.  Check all garments .for spots  or stains before washing.

FOR MOTORCYCLISTS  Motorcycle owners who carry  a passenger are urged to be sure  their vehicles are equipped with'  tires of sufficient carrying capacity for. the extra load. This is  ��� especially important with lightweight bikes, for the rear tires  in ^particular, as the entire  extra weight of the double-rider  is absorbed by the rear tire.  Tires of the next higher ply rating or tire size designation and  possibly a larger rim; may be  required.  ^  SliAM CUANIBiG  AUTOMOTIVE UNDERCOATING  COMPLETE CAR CLEANUPS  UPHOLSTERY CLEANING ��� CAR WASH  -  CUT POLISH ��� SIMONIZE  FOR ESTIMATES AND APPOINTMENT  Phone 886-2784  ESSLEMONT EQUIPMENT SERVICES LTD.

It gave him only the Intelligence  to fashion hte own protective devices and  the common sense to use them.  The human head Is crammed with more deiicate  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 i*s 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.  Modern safety clothing is well designed.  Comfortable, And sensible. We set and  enforce equipment regulations to keep  you safe. Follow them. Respect your  body and protect it.

TAURUS ��� April 21to May 21  Outside of a slight tendency to  "jump to conclusions'" too quickly, all is going well for Taurus.  Sometime, during this transit,  the most casual, inoffensive remark could cause a lot of (trouble. Be wise, and be silent!  GEMINI ��� May 22 to June 21  Your social life will probably1  be activated most strongly this  coming week. There are many  friends and7 acquaintances  around you clamoring for attention. Don't become too confused  by  it all.  CANCER ��� June 22 to July 22  A lot of hard work is indicated  for you, with a (Strong hint that  some of it may become quite involved in a legal sense. Be wise,  and consult a GOOD lawyer if  you want peace of mind.  LEO ��� July 23 to August 23  It's "home free" for Leo now;  that is, of course, only if you  aire "playing ball." If you have  sihut yourself away from the  world, now is a good time to expand, and let your voice be  heard. People will listen, and  co-operate..  VIRGO ��� August 24 to Sept. 22  There's very little to add to  the Virgo horoscope of last week,  except that a little "glitter and  glamor" may toe wearing off and  tiring you out. 7_f you're past  middle age you've got the best  years of your life ahead!  LIBRA���  Sept.  23  to  Oct.  23  Planetary forces are beginning  to 'stir with activity' for Libra  now.   This   should   shower  you  with great   benefit   for   many,  many years to come. There will  be the regular upsnand^dlowns in  daily living, but the long range  forecast is GOOD!  SCORPIO ��� Oct. 24 to Nov. 22  The only thing to watch out  for in Scorpio is that you don't  lose your temper during this  weekend. If you do, you are liable to lose EVERY _?I_ING you  have gained in life. By October  your chart should Ibe extremely  beneficial.  SAGITTARIUS Nov. 23 - Dec. 21  A lot of fun, socially, may perhaps cause you to spend: more  money than you intended to.  Budgets and finance are strongly highlighted in your chart. Enjoy yourself, by all means, but  mate sure; it doesn't cost too  much.  CAPRICORN ��� Dec. 22 - Jan. 20  A most soothing and relaxing  time is coming up. There's a  VERY powerful aspect of planets in Virgo now, that should  bring tremendous benefit if you  are thinking in "long-range" investment. .  AQUARIUS������ Jan. 21 to Feb. 18  The only "touchy" aspect for  Aquarius now, is the temporary  "flare-up" in the sign of Scorpio.  The "storm" should ibe over by  mid-October. Other than this  conditions are really good.  PISCES ��� Feb. 19 to Mar- 20  A "change of thought" may  make some wonderful headway  in the lives of nearly all Pisces  individuals. Moderate activity is  shown -in all matters dealing  with 'people' rather than abstract things.  (Copyright 1971 by Trent Varro.  All rights reserved.)

G. E. GIRARD  Dated August 10, 1971. Assistant Secretary. '  (By ED  THOMSON)  Hauled up on the foreshore in  the Bay just below Gilbsons post  office arid out of reach of ttie  tide, the hull of a concrete boat  rears its graceful lines like some  prehistoric monster cast up from  the deep.  Frank Braithwaite of Gower  Point Road, with an eye to a  'salty, seaworthy ship' and a  dream shared by his wife Pat,  spotted the incompeted ferro-  cement hull in Port Coquit-am  and in a deal that took less than  five minutes to transfer the ownership, the Braithwaites were on  the way to realizing their dream  A towing job brougait the hull  to Gibsons last fall where it remained moored at the government wharf until this summer  when the new owners brought  her across the bay to the present  berth, awaiting completion and  fitting out, which according to  Frank will take the best part of  , a year.  A 44 footer with 13-foot beam,  she will be constructed on conventional  seagoing  lines  as   a  two master ketch rig with 40 hp.  1 Perkins diesel auxiliary motor.  At the commissioning, Clarence Joe will be called in to suggest a significant and musical  Indian name for this Skookum  boat. This in honor of the west  coast Indians and in memory of  Lieut. Voss and his around the  world voyage, single-handed in  the TilMicum, now housed in the  Maritime Museum, Victoria.  Braithwaite became converted  to the advantages of cement-  structured craft while in Portland, Oregon, several years ago.  The superiority of ferro-concrete  compared to the so-hard-to-  obtain well seasoned wood, was  demonstrated to be more economical1 in maintenance and over-  . all strength, and could even with  stand the pounding of-the Great  Barrier Reef, as shown by a New  Zealand yacht driven across the  sharp rocks in a gale.  When their boat is completed1,  the Braithwaites, including their  two self reliant daughters, Joan  8 and Patricia 6, along with Jody  the family dog will go on a  shakedown cruise down the West  coast. Then with everything taut  and shipshape the (family will  take off to Panama, through the  locks into the Atlantic heading  for the West Indies and Azores  on to England, returning in seven or eight month�� taking care  to avoid the September hurricane season.  A native of Lancashire, Frank  Braithwaite is of the restless  breed with 58 crossings of the  Atlantic in armed-chair passenger comfort, not to mention an  unforgettable voyage on an old  The Labor Scene  Hon. James R. Chabot, minister of labor, has announced that  the board of industrial relations  has issued a new minimum wage  order which provides that in all  cases the same minimum wage  rates, conditions of labor and  employment which apply to male  employees shall apply to female  employees.  The minister stated that the  order was issued following representations which had been  made by women's organizations.  In addition, the views of interested parties who appeared before the board at public hearings in various parts of the province were taken into account.  Also the board had the benefit  of information- supplied to it by  the research branch of the department.  SNORKELS, MASKS, FINS  DIVING RENTALS  WALT NYGREN SALES  (1971)  LTD.

I do this rash sort of thing  from time to time. In childhood,  I promised Mother I'd study  hard. In later years I was wont  to promise to give up tobacco,  stop swearing, eat less, and put  more water in the whisky. I am  an expert on promises.  The diary indicates that the  good earth of Ck>ast-Obilootin  was NOT all covered during the  past summer7 Odd,isn't it?  There were stays of one or  two days in Squamish, Pember-  ton, Lillooet, ��railorne, put only  brief stops atv little Gunn Lake,  Pavilion, Canim Lake and the  big Britannia Mine.  Overnights and up to four days  at Powell River, Texada Island,  Lund, Sechelt, Mission Mountain  and BfeLla Coola*, but only tea  and   crumpet   time   in   Lac  la  Letters to Editor  Editor: In a recent issue of  Coast News one of your readers  complained that the average  Gibsons taxpayer showed a complete lack of interest in municipal affairs due (he said) to the  fact that (at the moment) everything in the local tax garden is  lovely.  However, maybe by next year  this somnolent state of affairs  could change after said taxpayers have spent several buttock  bashing months b o u n c i ii g  around the tank traps which  masquerade as roads in our fair  (to be?) city. This reader recently failed to obtain- from Municipal Hall assurances that at  least some of our sewer ravaged  thoroughfares would be placed  in a, usaible condition before the  advent of winter weather ���conditions. Statements like "Our inspectors are constantly reviewing the situation,'' or "settling,  you know" ad infinitum, ad naus-  euni- to these ears.  Cop  outs?  Many of the affetted areas  have been "settling" since ear_y  last spring and under the.terms  of his contract the- sewer installer is obliged to resore all surfaces to their original condition  ��� and that shouldn't be too  hard! So��� just how long does  it take for back fill to settle in,  years? When winter rains, frost  and snow have gouged away the  dirt fill from these simulated  bomlb sites, the coming months  could prove to be a bonanza season for local auto repair shops  and by next year the very mention of spring could, for some  unfortunate drivers, spark expensive memories.  Another matter which could  cause an upsurge of civic  "awareness" and one which  your previous correspondent  might in his more relaxed moments care to speculate on, is  whether like the taxpayers of  the Regional area having gone  overboard for an expensive item  of municipal expenditure, the  residents of this area will when  they are individually billed for  the continuing annual cost, be  loud in their protests. Will recent history repeat itself with  irate taxpayers going after council baldheaded, waving demands  for 120 sewer bucks in their hot  little hands?  In this writer's experience, it  is surprising how many people  are ignorant - of just how much  they will be stuck for, and for  heaven knows how many years  ��� manylbf them.for the rest of  their natural lives!  But maybe, your correspondent is an ardent follower of the  Sport of Kings and is in the  habit of studying form, from  which he may prognosticate that  Ihe Gibsons taxpayer is a pliable  fellow who when faced with the  inevitable may resign himself  (or herself) to what maybe is  all in the name of "progress,"  business interests and some dandy real estate rake-offis to boot.  ���E.

These include 202 gill-  net, 25 seines and 100 troll vessels.  The government has purchased 50 vessels of the initial 125 offered, paying $714,134 to fishermen who want to get out of the  industry.  Only 50 vessels can be handled'  at one time for appraisal) and  mooring.  The first public auction, will be  held Oct. 2 at Delta Marina.  Vessels purchased cannot be  licenced to go back into the fishing industry on the Pacific Coast  either for salmon or any other  species.  The buy - back program,  brought in as Phase n of the  salmon vessel licence control  program to reduce the fishing  fleet, is funded Iby the fishermen's licence fees.  These were increased in 1970  from $10 to $100 and $200, according to vessel length and tonnage, and the fees were doubled  the following year. There is $1.8  million presently in the fund.  Since the salmon fleet was frozen in September, 1968, the number of commercial salmon vessels has dropped from 7,414 to  6.300 in 1971.  Baha'i Faith  Informal Discussions  Tuesdays, 8 p.m.  886-2078  Both pupils and teachers returning to school this week will  find that the curriculum has its  usual new look, but this year  perhaps a little newer than in  the past.  Hon. D. L. Brothers, minister  of education, has announced that  125 new textbooks have been  prescribed for the new school  year, and that 27 new or revised  courses, mostly at the elementary level, have been introducd.  Among the revised elementary  (years 1 to 7) programs is a  new approach to the Elementary  Human Life Science (Health)  courses built around two major  topiics. the human body, and  drugs, the latter including both  alcohol and tobacco. The drug  study does not consist of specified course outlines to be covered in a specified amount of time  but involves the extensive integration of the subject matter  with other subjetcs in what  teachers refer to as 'teachable  moments', the minister said.  However, the aurriiculunr guide  for the program outlines basic  concepts to be developed and  sets of objectives to be attained.  Among other new elementary  programs being made available  this year are;a new primary  (years 1 to 3) Social Studies  course arid a revised elementary  school music program. An innovation in the primary Social  Studies courses for Grades 1 and  2 will be the use of large pic-  . tures supplied by the Curriculum Resources Branch (formerly the Textbook Branch) in lieu  Winter sports  grants made  Grants have been awarded 16  sports participating in the first  annual British Columbia Festival of Winter Sports, L. J. Wallace, chairman of the British  Columbia Centennial '71 Committee announces.  The sports will be held December 1-12 and bring together more  than 10,000 athletes who will participate in events in all parts of  the province. Chairman of the  Festival1 of Winter Sports is Ronald B. Worley, deputy minister,  department of travel industry.  Wallace said the B.C. Winter  Sports will become a natural  springboard in deciding the  teams this -'province will send to  the next Canada Winter Games.  Sports participating are badminton, basketball, boxing, curling, fencing, figure skating, gymnastics, hockey, jiudo, skiing,  speed skating, synchronized  swimming, table tennis, volleyball, weightli-fting and wrestling.

The pictures,- part of a broader  program of supplying a wide  range of support ^material, are  expected to produce more discussion among young students  than either the written or spoken word, particularly in view of  the reading level of the pupils  involved.        v  Curriculum changes at the  secondary school level include  the development of a new guidance program and the presentation of a revised course in English Literature 12, Social Studies  11, German 9, Bookkeeping 12  and Account-nig 12. The revised  English Literature 12 course is  8      Coast News, Sept. 15, 1971.  the first development in a major  revision of the secondary school  English program. The revised  Social Studies 11 course completes the implementation of a  new basic secondary school Social Studies program as does  Accountancy 12 in- its field.  The new guidance program  has a greater degree of flexibility than previously to permit  teachers to deal with topical issues. This year it is exipected  that many will highlight such  subjects as drug abuse and consumer education.  In most cases the new courses are permissive, Mr. Brothers  said. Schools may introduce  theni at once or wait a year to  give teachers an opportunity to  become familiar with their content.  m  m\\\\\m\\\\\\\m\\\mwm\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\m  FLOWER SHOW J  Sechelt Garden Club |  St. Hilda's Hall ��� Sept. 18 ��� 2 to 8 p.m. j  Admission 50c ��� Children 25c ��  REFRESHMENTS  PLANT SALE ��� DOOR PRIZE  RAFFLE  n  HON, DAN CAMPBELL  and  HON.

What is the difference and are  there any other distinctions  made?  Answer: The word lawyer is a  very wide catch-all and! denotes  a person who is educated in the  law and who practices law. How  ever, the word lawyer does not  take into account some of the  historical distinctions -within the  profession.  In England a barrister is a  lawyer who actually goes to  court and argues cases before  a judge or judge and jury. A  solicitor, on the' other hand does  not go to court but rather interviews the client, handles the  case up to trial, prepares ail the  documents and once this has  been completed the solicitor then  turns the case over to a barrister. A solicitor also handles  inany matters which do not involve a trial or lawsuit ��� wills,  deeds, mortgages, contracts, incorporating companies, etc. The  two  are separate  and  distinct  In Canada (other than Quebec) they are not completely  separate professions. Most lawyers are both barristers and  solicitors and as such may perform any of the tasks normally  performed by one or the other  in England. This method causes  fewer complications and makes  it easier for the public to seek  legal advice without having to  worry albout who is a barrister  and who is a solicitor. The English system is, however, probably superior. To practice one of  these professions is an exacting  task. Only about l/10th of the  'lawyers in England are barristers. The introduction of the  English system here (as has  been suggested)- would work  some hardship on clients in  small towns where a barrister  would not find enough work to  do. One would have to be  brought in- from the larger- cities  where they would tend to congregate. The dififickiilty could,  however, be overcome by allowing solicitors to practice as barristers in municipalities where  there were no barristers.  In the United States the ter-  PENINSULA  ORNAMENTAL IRON  IRON RAILINGS  MISCELLANEOUS  FREE ESTIMATES  Phone 886-7029 or 886-7056  minology is slightly different.  There used to be separate professions corresponding to the  English system but over the  years the distinction has; practically disappeared and the.  terms attorney and counsellor  are now used interchangably. An  attorney used to prepare cases  and corresponded to an English  solicitor and a counsellor corresponded to a barrister. Attorney  in Canada means a type of agent,  one who holds the power of attorney of another.  Ah advocate is another general term and is equivalent to an  English barrister or an American counsellor. In France, or  Quebec, an avocat is the same  as an advocate, or a barrister  or a counsellor.  A notary public is a public of-  , fieer whose function it is to administer oaths, to attest and certify by his signature and seal  certain kinds of documents in order to make them official and  give them authenticity. He also  draws wills and handles the sale  of realty. A person can be a notary public and not Ibe a lawyer.,  It is a separate profession. Every lawyer certified to practice  law as a> barrister and solicitor  is also a notary. The French or  Quefbec equivalent of a notary  public is a notarie but this Word  is also used to describe in  France and Quebec someone  who in England or Canada  (other than Quebec) would be  called a solicitor.    .  As can be, seen, the question  is not easily answered because  many of these terms are used  interchangeably.  W. PHILIP GORDON  CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT  Room 208, Harris BDock  Gibsons  Ph.
