Array Victoria,  B.  c.  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Number 21, May 26, 1971.  10c per copy  Board asks teachers  help control budget  A meeting attendled by miore  than 40' teachers1 plus members  of the school board was held in  Sechelt Thursday night of last  week so board members could  place before the teacher* the  board's budget position for next  year.  Bill 47, passed during ithe last  session ��� of' the legislature bans  approval of councils for budget  overages. Now the board must  go direct to the public and risk  being turned down.  School Board Chairman Mrs'.  Sheila. Kitson in opening remarks said:  The puiippse of this meeting is  to explain the implications that  Bill 47 will have on this district  reganding budget planning for  next year.  The bill has removed the light  of municipal councils to approve  the school board budget and the  overage. In the past the councils of Gibsons and Sechelt have  approved our budgets, after  scone. discussion. Being in the  situation that we are in now certainly makes us' realize how  grateful  we   should be  to  the  councils, all1 of us. .  On or ibefore Feb. 1 a by-law  to provide for the additional  amount has to ibe published in a  local newspaper. If,, before the  1st of March, a petition of 100 or  5% of the owner electors is- received a referendum must be  put to the ratepayers between  March 10 and March 31.  The board is in the position, of  trying to reduce the overage  without curtailing to any great  extent the educational offering  in the district.  In any event, it is quite likely  that' an operating referendum  will be required, but the board  feels that it should attempt cer-  ain reductions in overage, otherwise a larger referendum! might  well be defeated.  The defeat of an operating referendum would have a disastrous effect on education in the  district. We have prepared a pre  sentatdon for you-, aifter which  we are prepared to consider  your comments1 and answer  what questions we can.  The presentation,, prepared by  Se/creta^-Treasurer J." S. Metzler, showed budget totals for the  four years from 1968'. The tabulation revealed the following:  Administration   costs   in  1068  totalled -7.19%;   instruction'  68.59%; pliant operation15.1,5%;';  repairs and maintenance 9.07%/-  For 19 6 9: Administration  6.81%; instruction 71.21%; plant  operation 14.39%; repairs .and  maintenance 7.59%.  For "19 7 0 : Administration  6.54%; instruction 73.77%; plant  operation 13.19%; repairs and  maintenance 6.50%. l ; .  For    19 71:    Administration  6.23%; instruction 75.33%;-. plant-  ope ration   12.23%;   repairs  an<J_  maintenance 6.21%. {  The tabulation showed a steady' decline in adwiinistratioji  Costs from 7.19% to 6.23%; instruction costs rose from 68.59^  to 75.33%; plant operation dropped from 15.15% to 12.23%'. swt  repairs and maintenance drop-^  ped from 9.07% to 6.21.%        >���%-Vl  Budgets increased $294,798  from $1,486,677 in 1968 to $1,781,-  475 in 1970. Total instruction increase (which covers teacHers*'  salaries) was $322,244, an increase at a more rapid rate than .  the total budget rate.  Teachers reply:  PETER SLINN   v  supervsor of elementary educa-  vton in this school district has  been elevated to the position of  school superintendent and will  leave Gibsons at the end of this  school year for Victoria before  ..assuming duties in some school  ;district/. He will be the youngest  school superintendent in the province. His appointment is effective August 1. He has. expressed  real regret at having to leave  -Gibsions after two years in his  presentpost 7  Census starts  Sechelt School Teachers association issued the following  statement after a meeting Tuesi-  day afternoon:  The,,hope^of the school board.  is"1hat.by  paring   operational  costs now any operational referendum necessary in the spring  \ w^Quld be reduced in the amount  '*,*jtsfe$&.;. i<_f\. j th^i^taacpa^ers;. and  '���'Vwou-d have^-gr^atii:. Chance of -  passing.  -Concern was expressed by  teachers-about the reduction in  the quality of education in this  school district that these cuts  seemed to portend. The Social  Credit government's finance for-  . mula was attacked, pairticularly  ���theamendments* brought down7  in; Bill 47 this .spring. Under  these amendments it is now necessary for local school boards  ��� having budgetary deficits' to go  direct to the taxpayer for extra  money whereas before this year  local councils1, could vote the extramoney.  It was pointed out that small  rural aieas :like this school district were particularly hard hit  by this change in that there is  a laoige; percenitage of absentee  taxpayers who own summer property, and a high percentage of  retired people whose families  have already passed through  school. Thus many voters1 on any  referendum have no direct interest in the educational system  in this area yet have -votes affecting,the welfare of local children, i k  Issue was also taken with the  board's strategy-of making W  .getary cuts; now. Opin_onr.;$as"  " pres'sed- thiaf this,' fi��ance?_of  la which- has school boards in a'  financial bind-all' over the province should be discredited'. It  was the opinion of several teachers that the *hoa_tfshould, go for  enough money to. operate schools  at present standards and that if,  such a referendum should fail  to pass because of the electoral  peculiarities of small rural districts such-' as this then the  schools, without the-money to  operate, should be closed down  with the public made fully aware of the provincial government' s _espp_rsibiil5!ty.  The meeting saw school trustees and teachers' express a keen  awareness of a need for co-ojper-  ation which is now greater than  ever particularly in the field of  informing ithe public of difficulties caused by provincial government policy  Reid road to get water  m  area  Holiday traffic heavy  Mrs. E. Whaites Of Sechelt,  census oomimis/sioner for the Sun  shine Coast offers the following  advice to householders as regards the census- taking which  starts June 1.  Foir census purposes Rurial  Route and Box numbers are not  good addresses.. The people in  Gibson's and Sechelt must be  pure of their house number. In  all other districts on the Sunshine Coast your lot number and  your block number should be  ready to give the census enumerator when she calls.     7  To. take the -census, the Sunshine Coast is a drop off-pick up  area. The enumerators will start  dropping off on May 25 when  they leave a form at your home  for you to fill in.  After June 1 they will Tetum  to pick up the form from you.  Please be sure to answer every  question. J  SUNDAY FIRES  Two fire calls Sunday in Gibsons were a grass fire in the  Bay airea, Georgia Heights end,  and at the Salvation Army camip  where a brush fire required attention.

Gibsons council will go ahead  with its Reid Road, water line  now that the Regional board has  - decided itj isi-_ unable to. .finance  * the project.    ^     '��� > 'w-"���?'-- -  This was the decision Of council following a report by Aid.  Charles Mandelkau that a Regional board meeting decided  that in view of people circularized on the issue not being favorable it would not proceed with  such work.  Aid. Mandelkau then suggested that if.������anything was* going to  be done in that area that Gibsons council would1 have to do it.  He regarded the situation as a  borderline case* with the village  on one side of the road and the  Regional District on the other.  The water will be supplied from  the reservoir end of Reid Road.

Happiness in orderliness!  This month's Royal Bank Letter is of special interest because  it gets right into a down-to-earth subject which should be instilled  into a good many minds to their mutual benefit. The subject is on  System and Order. Here is a quote from, the letter:  "Systems are not designed just to provide impressive wall  charts with arrows leading the eye from one neat rectangle to another. Systems are for organizing activities and carrying them out  in^an orderly way.  "The principle of order is the basis of good business. Untidiness is inefficient, whether it be in workshop, office, or one's min*d|.  "A person gets a great, deal more pleasure and satisfactiion  from working in a place where order exists1. That is a statement  it is easy to brush off, and many people do so to their later sorrow,  but it is a statement that should be put to the test by everyone.  Once one gets the habit of orderliness it is much easier to be orderly than disorderly.  "Orderliness in a working place makes it easier to resolve  problems and perform operations, whereas disorder in his surroundings hampers a worker as to speed and accuracy. The habit of  putting tools back in their places is part of orderliness. The carpenter and the machinist can reach for a tool without stopping  work. So can the orderly manager take up his pen or rubber stamp  or a paper clip. So can the orderly housewife at her baking counter pick up without waste energy a roller, a measuring spoon or  the salt shaker. *  "Classification is part of orderliness. It is a logical process  which consists in keeping together those things wihiiich belong together. It avoids confusion, frees the mind from the frustration of  not finding tools when, they are needed, and eliminates the cause  of many irritations. Making oneself into an orderly person is interesting, because it demands ingenuity, a quality all of us like  to display."  No end to blind alleys  Can a present which disregards the past lay sound foundations  for a better future? Mature progressives see with horror the danger of a new generation repeating all their own mistakes. They do  not want to dictate but do feel they can advise. Youth's clear vision may glimpse new ways out of our impasse but their seniors ���  from bitter experience"��� think they can still show them some blind  alleys to avoid. ���Unchurched Editorial.

To finance its water development program, including the new  Winn Road well, Gibsons council  will raise $100,000 through debentures.

Jo Ann Robil-  liard was crowned May Queen.  B.C. Electric laid a submarine  cable from Gibsons to Keats Island.  A three to four? hour peak of  265 cars lined up to board the  ferries for Horseshoe Bay during the Monday holiday.  Shell Oil Company having dis--  msntled- its  old service station  in Sechelt is building a new one  costing  $25,000.  15 YEARS AGO  The Sunshine Coast Fall Fair  board has appealed for more  members in order this annual  event can be continued.  Blacktopping Of all roads in  the Port Mellon mill area has  been completed. A new recovery  plant building will be started in  June.  Sam Fladager was elected  chairman of Gibsons Merchants  Credit Association with James  Connor and Dick Fitchett in executive posts.  20 YEARS AGO  Marie Gooldrup was crowned  Seohelt May Queen succeeding  Mary Parker.  Kin Tom Larson reports working parties have started clearing  brush out of Kinsmen Park (now  Dougal Park) in Gibsons' Headlands area.  Sechelt wants a night telephone operator in the job. Opening of the Gibsons phone office  at 7 instead of 8 a.___. is also desired.  A national census has been  ccanpared to a stop-action photograph. It provides, at a particular point in time, a complete  picture oif the social' and economic characteristics of .a country. For Canada, this point in  time will be June \ 1971.  To operate this gigantic camera, the permanent staff of the  Dominion Bureau of Statistics  will be supplemented by some  50,000 temporary eoniployees,  specially trained for the vairious  jobs associated with the different stages of census-taking.  The first stage, the gathering  of census inlformatioh, will require the bulk of extra manpower. Representatives will visit every household and deliver a census questionnaire. Once the ques--  tionnairas have been completed  and checked by the census representative, they have to (be  carefully sorted, coded and sent  to Ottawa for processing.  The next stage, that of collating and processing census information, will be taken over almost entirely by machines. Reports and tabulations will toe  produced practically wthout hu-  produiced practically without hu-  ployees will be needed to attend  to the machines.  However, no machine has been  devised that can take over an  enumeration area, usually containing from 100 to 200 households depending on density of  population, and find every house"  hold in that area-, and make sure -  that each household gets a census form; if need be, explain  wlhiat the census is about; answer questions; list vacant dwellings, call back if questionnaires  are not returned, and help fill  them out if the need arises;  check all questionnaires to see  whether all questions have been  MPs respect  David Lewis  Don Lockstead, delegate for  this area to the national convention of the NDP which elected  David Lewis MP as its leader,  replacing Tommy Douglas, MP,  retired, on his return home made  these observations on the convention:  The events leading up to, and  r  the vote itself on the leadership  race was one of the high'" points*  of the conventiom  It was generally conceded that  Mr. Lewis went into the convention with the most delegates  comtmllted to 'him. However Mr.  Laxer came up with a surprisingly strong vote on the final  ballot, 612 to 1046 for Lewis.  David Lewis has long been associated with the CCF and NDP.  He was appointed national party  secretary in 1938, and held that  post 12 years. He was later elected vice-chairman, chairman  and president of the party. He  has been a member of parliament for seven years and has  served as deputy leader in the  house.  'Mr. Lewis is well known  across Canada and is highly respected in the house of commons  for his debating skills and prin-  cipded stands on various issues.  The next federal convention  will be held in Vancouver in 1973  Policy discussion on Quebec's  role in confederation was one of  the more interesting debates. It  was the view of the majority  that while people of Quebec  should be able to enjoy their vown  culture and language, the provinces should have equal status  within confederation, not special  or separate status.  In international a_!fairs, the  party condemns Canada's complicity in the Viet Nam war,  sale of arms to South Africa,  Rhodesia, and Portugal, and  urges this country use its_good  offices at the U.N. to help bring  about a peaceful solution to the  Meddle* East problem.  In essence, the New Democratic party rea-Mrms its belief that  the only long term' basis for a  stable peace lies in an international order based on law and  sooi-al order and justice.  Resolutions regarding native  people's- rights were suibmitteid  from many delegations. It was  agreed that we would recognize  North American Indians' aboriginal rights to the lands and  theiir use, recognize Indian rights  guaranteed in the treaties, and  interpret the treaties in a manner consistent with the resources  of the '70s.  answered,    and,    if   necessary,  complete by phone or personal  ��� visit., '���_.''  This is what the 42,000 census  representatives will be doing  when they start their drop-off  af questionnaires. Their work  should be completed by June 15  to 20. Their rates of pay will  vary according to type of area.  Most will earn between $150 and  $200. In self-enuimeratiori' areas  they will, be paid composite  piece rates which include a mileage allowance; in canvasser  areas they will be paid a fixed  hourly rate plus mileage.  Census representatives are selected, trained and supervised by  some 2,000 census commissioners, each of whom is responsible  for the work of about 20 census  - representatives. Each commisi-  sdoner is permitted to hire an  admin'strative assistant at peak  periods for up to 40 hours of  work '��� x,  Comimisfsioner districts in turn  are grouped by 10 to 15, each -  group comprisinig an area roughly equivalent to two federal electoral districts. These will be administered by 133 regional office  representatives who were taken  on strength six months agio,  trained, and given the responsi-  biility for all field operations in  their districts/. To assist them  at census time, each will! hire  an administrative assistant and  a    number    of    quality-control  -clerks, for a total of 133 administrative assistants and 880 quality-control., clerks for Canada.  Period of employment will be  about three weeks during the  month of June.  With field operations, completed by the end of June, a steady  flow of boxes carrying tons of  paper will all but submerge the  eight DBS regional offices across  Canada. This paper flood ��� consisting Of some 6,000,000 population questionnaires, 400,000 agriculture census questionnaires,  and supporting documents ���  will hit St. John's, Halifax, Mont  real, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton amd Vancouver  between June 15 and June 30.  The rising tide of paper will  -be kept under control by 2,700  processing clerks, working under 250 supervisors and DBS regional office staff.  When the regional offices have  jirocessed the population questionnaires, and sent them to  headquarters in Ottawa, the  questionnaires, for all practical  purposes, will have moved out  of human hands-.

Each roll of microfilm will contain 1,800 questionnaires.  After the rolls of microfilm  have been processed, they a*re  sent on immediately to FOSDIC  (Filim Optical Sensing .Device  for Input to Computers) Twihiich  will convert the microifilim to  computer-ready magnetic tape.  FOSDIC is operated by its own.  team of six specialists with the  assistance of a further six peo  ple.  The last stop for census data  is the computer.

The reason for the  popularity of. charter flights, of  course, is their low cost per  holiday maker. It is estimated  that in 1969, a record 3,500 charters were flown from Canada,  most of them across the Atlantic.  How does one get on a charter  flight? Well, frequently one joins  a club, which- might be a term  covering anything from a special interest or hobby club to a  service organization. The favorite question of anyone going  overseas for a holiday is where  can I find a charter club?  Generally, when people put  out hundreds and hundreds of  dollars they would like to know  what their rights and obligations  are in the event that the service  or product does not work out ���  or in the event that they might  have a complaint to make with  the hope of obtaining some re  dress.  Professor W. A. W. Neilson,  professor of law at York University, has some strong views  on this subject and feels that  federal government authorities  have a duty to extend protection to Canadian travellers covering but of country charter  flights.  After all, it is a common rule  that the entire fare must be paid  considerably in advance, and  more often than hot, the organization taking the funds is largely unknown to the traveller.  Some consumers have discovered to their sorrow that the mere  existence of an organization  oyer a length of time does not  always guarantee their ability to  carry out the charter flight both  ways!  The Air Transport committee  of the Canadian Transport Commission require that all fares  paid for a charter flight be put  in a trust account in a Canadian  Wed like to  demonstrate the  12 new advantages  of the Pioneer 3071.

However, there  must be a named airline involved1 and arrangements must be  finalized to the extent of actual  arrangements for a charter  flight.  This protection would not cover the type of situation discovered in Toronto when a flight organizer disappeared with more  than $100,000. belonging to hundreds of would-be travellers  who paid over $200 each for  charter flights that would have  taken them home to Italy for  Christmas. The five fully-fbooked  flights had never been arranged  ��� and it is questionable if those  who paid to get on the charter  flights will ever recover any of  their money.  As a follow-up to Professor  Neilson's* investigation and report to the Consumers' Associa-  ti'on of Canada, the organization  would like to get some more information to fight this problem.  If you can help, would you  pleaise send your answers to any  or all of the following questions.  Are there clubs or organizations, in your area sponsoring  charter flights? If so, how did  you learn of their existence?  Did you find it relatively easy  to shop for the' best charter  flight buy? How did you go  about it?  Did you pay your fare in advance of take-off? How far in  advance was the last payment  made?  What sort of assurance did  you have of a binding contract  between the club and the charter airline involved?  Did you^ clearly understand  the following: ��� the total fare  if the flight was less than fully-  booked? was. food included?  were beverages included?  Did you understand the fares  to be regulated and controlled?  Were you given an opportunity  to purchase "no-show" insurance? If so, at what price?  Do you have any basic complaint about the availability and/  or operations of charter flight  operations in Canada? If so,  please provide brief details.  Send Tyour replies to Charter  Flights,..'

The Sechelt & District Retarded Children's Association which  has been active since 1958 '.have  finally. reached a goal this last  year .by 4>uilding a classroom  school for local children, situated on the school' -ground's at the  Gibsons Elementary School.  Without the support oif people  interested in this association and  their determination to help the  local children, this school would  not have been built.  A special thanks go out to all  persons on the Sunshine Coast,  all personnel of Canadian Forest  Products, Port Mellon, who donated their safety awards to our  association, and the Sunshine  Coast Lions club, Royal Canadian Legion branches', along with  all persons- and businesses who  donated to help us build the  school.  The school was built for $7,800  The balance caime from donations from people on the Sunshine Coast. All material for the  school was from local business  and was built by local contractor M.T. Construction and other  sub-trades.  Within one year we have paid  if or the school and are now looking forward to better the equipment and (further the education  for these children, with the great  ly appreciated help of Mr. Peter  Sl.nn, Supervisor of Elementa_y  Schools, our own teacher Mrs.  G-lady Legh, and her volunteer  teacher aides we are lookinlg forward to another good year.  One of the ways oif our association to raise .funds- was the recent Flowers of Hope seed's that  were distributed in the mails  last week as it is the national  week all across Canada.  Due to an inaccurate number  oif these pamphlets' needed to  send out in the matt' not everyone might have received one and  any one who wishes to send a  de-nation can be mailed to Sechelt and District Retarded Chil  dren's Association, Box 277, Sechelt or Box 575, Gilbsons.  Another way we have to raise  fundsi is by means! of a raffle,  this year we have a hand hooked  wool rug which was made by the  children in our school of which  the material for this rug was  donated by Mr. and Mrs. J. S.  Macey of Gibsons, along w:ith a  gift certificate from* Uncle Micks  stores in Sechelt. Tickets' will be  availalble around June 15 for this .  raffle which will be 25c each or  five for $1.

Census day is almost like voting day.  It's your right and privilege. Your chance to  let Canada know all about yourself and yoor  family. How and where you live. It's as  secret as "the ballot. All these facts become  statistics. And many organizations use them  to plan for our future.  This is how governments know where  to spend money for the most necessary things:  hospitals/schools, housing proj-ects^roads  arid highways, Community centred; ^)parks.  For example, a high percentage of  7  children under five in one section of >  your community may alert the board  of education to the need for a new "  school. Or, districts with a high  proportion of sub-standard  housing may be identified and  ear marked for urbal reriew_tl and  development programs. Things  like that.  It's a do-it-yourself census.  Any day now, you'll  receive your census questionnaire. The  idea is that everyone in Canada must fill  in that form on June 1. If a pre-paid return  envelope came with the population census  form complete the questionnaire and  maiHt back. If there is no envelope,  don't mail it but hold the form until it  is'picked up by a census representative.  This will probably be the first time  you've ever had the chance to fill in your  own census form. The old way of sending  census takers around knocking on doors and  asking you questions served a useful purpose  in its day. But we've found, after many trial  censuses, that people do a better job when  they fill in their questionnaires themselves.  If you are a farm operator.  If you have a farm, the census  representative will bring you the Census of  Agriculture form along with the population  census form. The extra information you give  is important for government farm programs  and farm organizations in the years ahead.  Some time after June 1, the census  representative will call oh you to pick up the  completed census forms. So don't mail  them back.  What happens if somebody doesn't  fill in his census form?  Everyone in Canada is required by  law to be counted in the national census.^  If you don't bother, a census representative  will have to come around and fill in your  questionnaire with you. So, if you do it  yourself, you'll save time and money for  everyone.  We heed facts about you ..." and  your family. Otherwise we won't have the  whole story.  Give a few minutes to the Census of  Canada. And Canada will give you a  better future.  It's your census. Everyone has the  right to be counted. Everyone has the right  to expect the information he gives to be  treated in absolute confidence. And you can  be sure that the information will be used  for the good of all Canadians.  So, don't forget. June 1;  Tell us what's new.  I*  DOMINION BUREAU OF STATISTICS  BUREAU FEDERAL DE' LA STATISTIQUE years of weather foi^casting!  One hundred years ago this  month, weather forecasting got  its official start in Canada. It  all began with a $5,000 grant, to  establish the Canadian Meteor-  O-igical service with a staiff of  three ��� and with an overwhelming task in a vast, four-year-old  nation.  The subsequent development of  meteorology in general and the  CMS in particular, could never  have been envisaged by the early meteorologists-. In 1877 they  were planning to increase the  usefulness oif weather predictions by telegraphing them to 75  of the principal places in Canada, where they would be posted in a prominent place for the  information of the general pub-  ���liic.      ' ���'-  Today, satellites and comput-  ters are normal tools of the pro-  ��� fession as the CMS, with a staff  of 2,300 and an annual budget of  $38 million, gathers, interprets  and exchanges weather data on  a global basis.  In its centennial year, the CMS  marks a doulble milestone with  its transfer to the Department  of Fisheries and Forestry, an interim step in its introduction to  a new department that will be  concerned with environmental  quality. Actually, the move is; a  sort of homecoming, as the Service's first attachment to government was with the old Department of Marine and Fisheries. -    .  The importance of meteorology and weather forecasting to  Canada's fisheries is seilf-eyident  But their importance in other  areas to be served Iby the environmental departmenit is also  paramount. Jack Davis-, mdnis-  ���teir-diesignate of the new department, said the addition of the  CMS to the other federal elements dealing with environmental quality is an important step  in the fight against air pollution.  "The CMS conducts important  research on the relationship between weather and air pollution," he said. "Now, it will be  on the same team'as specialists  in air quality who are joining  the new department froan Na-r.7.  taon-al. Health and SWeifare; This ;  will greatly enhance the scientific attack on air pollution."  Beautiful B.C.

She leaves her husband Robert  and son Robert and daughter  Sheahan at home, also three sisters, Mrs. Jacqueline Ferguson,  London, Ont.; Miss Edna Auger  and Mrs. Lindsay Hodgson of  Victoria.  A memorial' service was held  Sat., May 22 at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church with  Rev. Dennis Morgan officiating.  Harvey. Funeral Home directed,.,  A close friend of Mrs. Bennie  writes: 7 ��� ���  I should like to give you here  some of the thoughts of the  friends who knew; Mrs. Bennie  well ��� in the hopes that you or  your staff can use them in writing a suitable tribute to a noble  lady and her gallant family.  In the battle against that vicious enemy of mankind, cancer, the average fighter in Mrs.  Bennie's position would have'  thrown in the sponge over two  years ago. But Mrs. Bennie was  no average fighter. She was a  four-star general whose personal knowledge and understanding  oif the so-far unconquerable nature of the enemy, whose ability re-adjust and re-organize her  fighting lines, and whose compassion for her fellow man,.have  all made hers the most gallant  battle any of us Thave ever  known.  Furthermore, though Mrs1.  Bennie has had to give ground ���  in this one personal battle, she  has not yet given up the war  and has willed her body to the  medical men in the hoipe that  thereby she can strengthen their  battle lines. We who know her  best feel that if only they can  find the secret of her unconquerable spirit, they will have the  ultimate weapon.  '���""'?���"  One of the most distinguished��.  qualities of Mrs. Bennie's char- -  aeter has  been that  since she'  contracted : this dreaded  illness  she has  not narrowed her life  ..'nor confined her energies to her  own personal problems. Your  readers will recall that for the  , last ..two, years her Cup-of-Milk  project has gone ahead full  swing, and' from her sick bed  she has marshal_ed the crew,  held her Coffee Party and kept  a good thing going.  You will recall, too, that last  year sometime she left her sick  (bed, waded into the cold Pacific,  pulled out a little child, performed artificial respiration,  called in the ambulance and saved the child's life. She never  once shrugged otff her duties  and responsibilities as a wife  and mother but right to the very  end was helping to organize the  housework and keep the budget  balanced. Within this last week  she was sending flowers from  her own garden to sick iriends  and was  telephoning messages  of encouragement.  Never once, through all this,  was the guard down. As Mr.  Bennie has said: "Audrey has  that quality which makes believers of us all." Much credit  must go to her staunch little  family, who knowing the score  all along have yet mustered sol*-.  idly behind their general to keep  the good fight going. Those who  know Mr. Bennie well would expect no less, but consider what  a devastating time this has been  for two young students. Their  steadfastness and unwavering,  unquestioning loyalty to the  cause show maturity and deep  quality of character far beyond  their years.  Frien.ds and neighbors who  have in any small way been able  to assist through this bad time  would like the Bennies to know  that we feel privileged and honored to have been even a minute  part of so gallant an effort, and  we owe them a debt of gratitude  for having'counted us- in.  I'm. sure there are many other  "things that could ibe said. This  district   is   a  far  better   place  . for, having rubbed shoulders with  Mrs. Bennie.  Lane again on  Sechelt agenda  The unfinished business removed from Sechelt council's  agenda at the first meeting in  May was replaced.on the aigen-  da at the.second May meeting  when a protest was lodged with  council by Bernel Gordon who  maintained it was blocking his  plans for improving his property-   ���        . ���:,������/..'.'  ^ The issue was removed at Aid.  Ben Lang's request and was put  back oh the agenda at Aid.  Lang's request. This unfinished  business concerns a lane back  of the block bounded by the Coffee shop and the former Shop  Easy store on Cowrie St.  The issue involved concerns a  .straightening out of the land at  the Shop Easy end and has been  a jnatter of negotiation for a  cott|fle''-'of years. It was .dropped  wheiKsome persons involved decided to leave the action uncompleted.  Aid; Lang will now read  through the correspondence and  see if he can come up with a  solution.

Education  (By FRED ALLNUTT)  Education, no matter how we  look at it must culminate in one  thing, a job, a job that will put  bread and butter on the table  and ideally give some degree of  satisfaction as well. But today's  system ignores the realities of  Please don't  the coach  or the umpire  The coaches and managers are  the absolute authority when your  child is at a practise or in a,  game ��� He is the teacher, first-  aid attendant (for hurt feelings  mostly) and sadly enough babysitter. He volunteered his time  to help these children learn to  pllay ball. The technique of each  coach or manager may differ,  but they do have one thing in  common, they care enough  about the children to be out on  that field (even during the hockey play-offs).  Please don't criticize them in  front of your child ��� constructive criticisan will no doubt be  welcomed by the coach or manager in private. Help him by  coming to the game, and offering transportation to others. Be  enthusiastic about your team  and the objectives of the Gibsons Athletic Association. Cheer  for your own child, but also for  the team as a whole. Don't be  a put down, the other team are  worthy opponents with feelings.  Show your appreciation for all  good plays. It's not disloyal, but  good sportsmanship and good  parent-ship. The other parents  will learn to reciprocate your  generosity. .  Please remember, without the  coaches and managers these  children would not have the opportunity to play league ball this  season. These men and women  who do volunteer their services  as coaches and managers stand  very; tall in our books ��� They  could also be watchmg TV, gardening or playing senior softball  but they care about kids. Please  help them. If you can spare an  hour or so, contact Mr. Doug  Elson, and volunteer that hour,  it will be greatly appreciated.  Remember too, the umpire is  human. He may sometimes  make a mistake, like the rest of  us. Don't make a Federal case  out of it, the coaches and managers, will dispute the issue if  they see fit. Remember the umpire came forward and volunteered his- time, or agreed when  requested, because no one else  cared enough to do the job. His  decisions have to be respected  and adhered to. Have faith in  your team and their ability to  win the game. One bad call  doesn't really matter. The individual willing to fill the umpire  position so the game can be  played does matter a lot.  Gibsons Athletic Association  will be selling family memiber-  ships for $3. This covers baseball, soltball, swimming and  soccer. The registration fee for  each sport covers the insurance  for the child and registration of  the team in the leagues. The  membership fee enables the association to provide the equipment and uniforms for all the  children who wish to participate,  not just a select few as in the  past.  Please help, buy a membership. It's a great investment in  the children of our community.  3L  JOHN HARPER  Designer, Cabinetmaker  Carpenter  REASONABLE PRICES  886-7065  f   Used furniture or what  have yon  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  AL'S USED FURNITURE  Gibsons ��� 886*2812  earning a living and aims everybody at university, employing  the shotgun method: If we aim  them in the right direction, they  are bound to hit the target sooner or later. But are they?  The day of an automatic job  for everyone with a degree is  drawing to a close. Trie surge of  students through our universities  in the last few years has fillled  the gap that existed and we are  rapidly moving into a surplus  situation. A situation we should  have foreseen and prepared to  avoid.  The modern technology is available, the techniques are quite  familiar and the knowledge is at  hand, to set up comprehensive  counselling services throughout  our secondary school system. A  service that would use all the  computerized space age tooHs  and techniques to help every student in every way possible,  reach an honest, accurate appraisal: of Ms skills, abilities,  needs and desires. An appraisal  that would be of inestimable  value to the student anxious for  guidance as he faces the bewil-  S      Coast News, May 26, 1971.  de-iung world of'work and for a  society in dire need of a formula for eliminating its boom or  bust aspects-.  Nobody seems willing to admit  that a university degree is not  a passport to Utopia. It has been  preached for so long now thai; a  degree is a guarantee of employment that we almost all came to  believe it. Now it will take more  ���than a pronouncement from on  high to convince ithe parents,  students, school; boards and the  departments of education that  the sooner we .grasp the premise  that education is primairilly to  prepare you to earn a living, and  then get on with the job of providing the student not only with  the facilities to obtain training  but aDso the information that he  requires to guide him into an  areaotf the job market where he  will be most welcome.  Entering university simply for  the sake of gaininig a degree  may never again be the thing  to do for our young. This is hot  to say that learning for the pure  joy of learning has not its fair  share of mterit but it would appear; that in the new world oif  the future theZideal will be to  prepare ourselves to earn a_ living first V and then take advantage of the shorter work days,  work weeks and longer vacations provided by the advance of  , automation, to study, obtain degrees and prepare ourselves for  future careers, while we earn.  If this indeed comes to pass  istudtents will Ibe entering university at a later age, already with  some experience in the world of  work, financially more secure,  not dependent on the summer  job, or their parents' strained  finances. Under such cdrcum-  stances the university may get  back to what it was intended for  in the beginning, an institute .of  higher learning, rather than being a mass production line torri-:  ing but idealaistic dewey eyed  graduates with little or no ex-  r^'rience in their chosfen field or  what the world of work is really all about.

Sunshine Coast Regional District  R.R. 1, Sechelt, B.C.  885-2838  C. F. GOODING  Secretary-Treasurer  : Today there are so many African violet cultivars that the  list compiled by the American  African Violet Society contains  thousands of names and yet is.  by no -means complete. There  _ire fcinds with miniature, medium and large flowers, ail of  which may be single, semi-double  or double and occur in tones of  blue, pink, lavender, wine, purple and. white.  - *.;       '*   '.'.���   %  Some have two shades of the  same color or two colors in one  flower, or flowers of one color  splashed or flecked with another  color. There are also novelties  with star shaped flowers-. The  petals may be ftinged, wavy or  ruffled. Leaves are smooth, corrugated, fringed or wavy on the  edges, round or pointed, flat or  . cupped, solid green or variegated; with creamy white.  ���le, rise in popularity of the  African violet is due not only to  the development of new varieties, but to the adaptability of  this beautiful house plant to the  high temperatures and generally  dry conditions of our homes.  Since the plant responds particularly well to special care,  home gardeners find- it a challenge to grow bigger and better  plants than their neighbors. By  careful cultiy a tion, it .is possible  to keep j Me plants flowering  most of "the year.  Four -important* things are  needed for the successful growth  of African Violets* These are:  proper light conditions, the right  kind of soil, humidity.and watering.  * *       *  The best location in the home  is one where sunlight is enough  to produce ample blooms without  causing yellowing Or burning of  the foliage. Full sunligiht will  produce more- blooms, but the  foliage tends to yellow and the  plants take on an- undesirable  appearance. In winter, lack of  sunlight will produce nice green  foliage, but very few, if any,  flowers.  The best location seems to be  a large window facing west*  where the sun shines in late afternoon and the plants are  shielded from its direct rays by  awnings or curtains'.  An easterly window will produce fine plants provided they  are shaded when the sun is atr  its highest point..  A south window in winter is  excellent, but in summer the  excess sunlight will produce yellowing of the plants unless they  are shaded. ~"  * *       *  A north window is adequate  during the summer months provided the room is bright and the  window large, but as the days  grow shorter the plants should  be moved to a window with a  southern or western exposure.

Today,  under such fixtures collectors  and hobbyists are able to produce plants of exhibition quality.  The soil for these plants should  be open ��� that is, containing  -peat moss or well decayed  leaves. Unless you have the right  kind of soil, it is better to buy  specially prepared African violet soil sold by seedsmen and  department stores. At the Plant  Research Institute a mixture of  equal parts pasteurized soil,  peat moss and siharp sand is  used. For my own personal  plants I like to add some live  sphagnium moss to this mixture.  �������� -si" ������  Watering is very important in  the growth of African^ violets.  Over-watering will eventually  encourage crown rot, and too little water will cause the plants,  to wilt so badly that they may  never recover. Generally, the  plants need watering more in  winter than in summer in our  heated homes, especially if they  are placed near radiators. Our  plants are usually watered twice  a week during very .cold weather  and once a week during the rest  of the winter, but of course not  unless the plant needs it.  The best way to tell if a house  plant is dry is to feel the soil in  the top of the pot. If unsure of  water requirement, re-examine  the following day and water  them if necessary. This is preferable to over-watering. Too  much watering will retard bloom  ing, but lush leaves will probably result.  African violets may be watered from the bottom to avoid getting cold, waiter on the leaves.  An occasional heavy watering  tfrom the top will leach excess  mineral salts that may have accumulated in the soil. Use water at room temperature when  watering from the top. Gold water may cause a sudden drop in  leaf temperature, which will result in unsightly yellow rings on  the leaves. The same effect often occurs when bright sunshine  falls on a leaf for a period and  then the- sun dis suddenly cut off.  r^tm******^^^^,^*^^^  TANK TOP SPECIAL  TOP QUALITY ��� VAM8S fo $6.00  FOR  $2.98  Thurs., Fri., Sat., May 27 to 29  Goddard's Fashion Centre  SUNNYCREST PLAZA  GIBSONS  TRAIL BAY CENTRE  SECHELT  *^*^*^l^*^^^^^*^0*^*t^0^*0i^^^^^0^^^0^^^^^0^0^^+0^^*0^^0^0^^*^i*jr^^^,  11$  C/G'S  Speed Queen  & Service  Gibsons  A Complete Stock of Pails  Specializing in Speed Queen Service  Phone 886-7244 days; after 6 - 886-7560  All  Hourly Paid Workers  at  Port Mellon  i ���  A Representative Vote  wil! be held at the Port Mellon Community Hall  MAY 26/1971: Between 2:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.;  10:45 p.m. and 12:30 a.m.   MAY 27,1971: Between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.;  3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.  TO CHOOSE BETWEEN:  LOCAL 297,I.B.P.S. and P.M.W., Your present bargaining agents  and  LOCAL 6, P.P.WX.

FERD CORLEV, President Lack of space bothers all newspapers  Editor John McNaughton  the Ladysmith Chronicle is one  of Vancouver Island's most experienced newspapermen. He  has a way of explaining newspaper problems with clarity.  Here is a recent explanation  from the columns of his newspaper.  of One of the questions I am most  frequently asked is: "Why does  your paper vary in size from  week to week?" The question  arises particularly when we have  to leave news reports or pictures out for a week or more  because we do not have enough  space.  STEAM CLEANING  REPAIRS TO: Lawn Mowers. Garden Tractors  Power Saws, Outboard Motors (up to 10 horse)  DATSUN Repairs and Service  SOLNIK SERVICE LTD.  SS6-9662  To begin with, I should explain that this problem of size is  not peculiar to our paper. Every newspaper faces the same  problem and for the same reason ��� advertising.  I am sure everyone realizes  by now that a newspaper lives  on its advertising revenue. The  money realized from the sale of  subscriptions is ^ relatively  small part of a newspaper'�� revenue. It is* the advertising re^  venue that keeps us in business.  To that extent newspapers are  private businesses. They have a  commodity to sell ��� advertising ��� hut they also have a service to perform. That service is  providing the community it  serves with news of its own affairs, accurate, up-to-date reports of what is taking place in  the community. The subscription fee pays for the service, the  advertising space provides the  columns of type, the newsprint,  the press time and the staff  which conveys the service to the  public.  The problem for the newspapers becomes acute when there  is a week with a lot of news  and pictures which cry out to  be published and very little advertising. On such weeks we run  what we call an open paper, but  we must.be mindful of the fact  that a series of open papers can  put us out of business.  To further complilcate the  problem there is the fact that  we increase or decrease the size  white page  Gibsons-Sechelf  Telephone Directory  last call  HERE'S  YOUR  LAST CHANCE  TO  CHECK  YOUR  LISTING FOR THE NEW TELEPHONE DIRECTORY!

If our paper is on- the  borderline between say a 20-  page paper and a 24-page paper  we hardly feel we can be expected to print four additional pages  to get in a column story.about  a tiddly wink tournament.  There is nothing we would like  better than to toe able to publish papers three or four times  as big as we do each-week and  if we could get enough advertising to do this, you can be sure  we would maintain an ever larger precentage of news and current topical pictures than* we do  now. In the busy season papers  like the Vancouver Sun can publish as much as 70 or 80 percent  advertising and still run page  after page of straight news.  When we run one of our 16-page  tabloid size papers even 40 percent news is barely enough to  cover the top stories.  So if anyone asks you why we  occasionally leave a story out,  the answer probably is that it  has been a poor week for advertising and we had to cut down  the size of the paper. After all  if-we cannot continue to. publish,  we cannot print any news at all.  Skiers victims  of land spoilers  Brutish Columbia skiers are  being vafetiimized by a common  human frailly. It's called greed.  Unfortunately, the victims are  not just the current crop of skiers, but a generation or more of  skiers yet unborn, Dr. Peter Andrew��, president, Canadian Ski  Association, Western Division,  maintains.  As long as our trees can be  cut down with such a high return, as long as our land can be  cut up and sold back to us at an  exorbitant profit ��� that's how  long the B.C. public will get the  dirty end of the stick in recreation land development.  To the uninformed,   some of  the ski officials' complaints must  seem exaggerated. Most people   -  look at the countless snow-capped mountains and they shrug ���  What's one lost, mountain more  or less, when there aire so many?  What they don't realize is that  very few mountains lend themselves to ski development. There  are so many things involved ���-  access to and up the mountain;  general   topography;   grade   of  slope; exposure and weather, to  name a few of the most important factors. Any one of these  can -cancel, out a mountain.  That's why there's been such  a furore over the mutilation of  Cypress Bowl. If there were lots  of Cypres�� Bowls around, all  within easy access of half the  province's population, there'd be  less cause for alarm. But there  aren't. So when the ski associations speak out it's with the  public interest in mind. There  have been too many grand ideas  for ski areas underfinanced from  the beginning.

Coroners are  appointed in British Columbia on  the reeomtmendaition of the provincial cabinet. Where a coroner has been infonmed that someone __a:s died a violent or unnatural death, or a sudden death  where the cause is unknown, or  that person has died in prison,  he must sumimon a jury of six  people and! conduct an inquest.  At the inquest any person willing to testify may do so concerning the facts and circum-  sitaraces surrounding the death.  If the deceased suffered a long  illness, the doctor who attended  him last, must attend the inquest.  The coroner and the jury, at  the first sitting of the inquest,  -niust view the ibody of the deceased, unless the coroner directs otherwise. When all the  evidence has been heard at least  five of the six jurors must ren-  cter a. verdict as, to 'how,.,:when:  an<l where the deceased caine  to'his death.  if at least five juixxrs cannot  agree-on- a verdSJct, the coroner  will discharge them and he may  be ordered by the attorney-general to summon another jury  and begin again. At the conclusion of the inquest a record of  the testimony is prepared and  the reports of the jury and the  coroner are sent to the attorney-  general.

If a person causes death by  manslaughter, murder or any  other criminal ofifence, the attorney-general may direct that  no inquest shall be held.  If ai person has been summoned to serve as ai juror and he  does not appear he may be arrested and the coroner may impose a fine of not more than  $100, or, in default of payment,  ���comanittal to jail for not more  than 30 days.  A coroner may issue a summons to any person who, in his  opinion, may be able to give  material evidence as to the matters inquired into at the inquest.  The procedure in coroner's  court is very similar to a regu-  ���lar court except that the coroner replaces the judge and instead of the more familiar jury  of twelve, there is a jury of six.

Basic trailer h-ames could be  installed purchased directly fram  the government as part of the  welfare payment.  The wholesome food and healthy exercise in the fresh air  would greatly red_toe medical  expenses, and the children being  much farther - from the candy  shop would greatly reduce dental bills.

PULP & PAPERWORKERS  of CANADA  Editor: In the last issue of  your newspaper you published a  letter from Barbara Yates.  The attitude of the letter  doesn't exactly echo Love and  Peace; -many people recognize  the problem that the younger  generations of today face and  are sympathetic to them. The  lack of jobs being paramount in  many people's"minds, involving  not only the younger generations  but irien endeavoring to support  families, of which there are  some in this area.  _ If it is not financial aid you  are seeking, what is it? The letter states that "you are already  aware of the over%t_rdiened taxpayer" and unfortunately the.  ���overburdened taxpayer is very  much aware of this too. Today's  philosophy seems to be "something for nothing" and although  it may appear as swell at the  outset, it has to be paid for in  the endf whether it be the free  gift in the washing powder box,  or the cigaret package vouchers  ��� and as taxpayer�� -most of us  contribute to the federal government, who you say would be res-  ���ponsdible foir financing a local  hostel.  Many people have chosen tMs  area to live in, some by reason  of employment, some through  retirement, and we all. appreciate the many attractions of living here and as- for those who  were not bom here being undesirable, that happens to be most  of us. Perhaps the way to make  good comihiuhity relations is to  make a constructive oontriibu-  tion to the conununiity and by  doing so many may look on  those receiving federal grants  di-ferenitly.  As with any group of people ;  there are those who 7can live  without disturbing others and -  there are those who are attracted1 to groups and cause nothing  but trouble. Yes, we know we  have problems locally and not  just breaikng and entering oharg-  10    Coast News, May 26, 1971.  es either. Some of us are trying  to help these people not, I might  say, by using them as examples.  Many people are distressed at  seeing what is- happening to our  society as the result of the economic problems that Canada as a  country must face. The older  ���generations remember the w-ork  camps, the train-riders, and  know what it is to experience,  hunger, someithinig that many of  us don't truly know. Younger  people have shorter memories  back to last year at Jericho  Beach and what happened! there  ��� respect for others' feelings.  and property perhaps would be  a beginning to establish good  community reiatiorisi.  ���SHEILA K.       ;  ~"^**^^*-____^*W��________^--___l__-___.l  ��� II      __-__________V^_M.I_ll__lB__l-_-____��  Have you rarei sheets of music?
