It  Offers the department the prospect of a route north of the present proposed road and outlines  reasons why it would be better.  Department oif Highways,  Hon. W. Black, Minister,  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Sir:  We wish to take this opportunity to present the following brief  with regaird to the presently  proposed Langdale-Gibsons bypass. .���������'���'*���..  Our association most strongly  opposes the proposed route of  this bypass for the following  reasons:  1. By definition the word bypass or cutoff means to go  around or circumvent, in this  case a populated area. The present route does exactly the opposite of this by proceeding diagonally through the middle of a  rapidly developing residential  area;  2. By proceeding on its proposed route diagonal to present  roads and property lines this  bypass would create many small  badly shaped pieces of property which would jbe of no further  use while at the same time seriously devaluating many other  parcels/ of land by creating serious access problems.  3. This diagonal route would  also create very serious probL  lems  in the  layout of  service  roads and services such as wa  ter, sewer and power for future  sujbdivision of the area while at  the same time depriving the Municipal Governanents of much  heeded tax revenue on lands occupied by this highway.  4. The proposed location of  this bypass would place a very  tight 'restriction* on the development of the village of Gibsons  by placing a barrier along its  northern boundary with only limited access to the large areas of  potential residential areas to the  north of the proposed highway.  5. We as residents can forsee  many seripus problems of access  to the areas to the north of the  proposed route for school children and other pedestrian traf-  fie, fSre and emergency vehicles  and service vehicles through the  necessity to travel considerable  distances out of the way to reach  a given point on the opposite  side of he bypass route.  6. One of the most guarded  amenities and aesthetic values  of our district has ibeen the absence of large quantities of vehicular tiialflfic ���with the associated problems of air and noise  pollution and personal hazard.  This proposed route would place  a major arterial highway in the  middle of our neighborhood making us the first victims of the  very thing that we live in this  location to avoid.  The presently proposed location bisects an area which presently is serviced by roads at V4  to Y2 mile intervals, this added  to the fact that the proposed' bypass p-wna-lels the e-dstdng highway by a few hundred yards  creates the most ludicrous situation where it would seem the  Department of Highways is d-e-  the meeting E. R. Cuylits, Regional District board! planner offered the opinion that there had  been a lack of communication  between the roads, department  and the Regional District board  and the public. He said the Regional board was in a very awkward position as it was unalble  to : inform the public, having  nothing on which to work. The  board had nothing to work on  regardimg final! plans. Therefore  the lack of communication was  evident.   . ..        7.  One of the opening remarks  termed the calling of the meeting democracy at work. Towards  the close a member of the audience maintained that what  should happen would be a vote  \ by7rate_w��!yeire oi the area to  show their feelings which would  also be democracy at work.  , The chairman decided continuance of the argument would be  repetitious and suggested adjournment which followed immediately.  a 'Malahat Drive'  termined to obliterate our community by a mass of dirt roads,  ibroken pavement and freeways.  In place of.the proposed route  we would suggest that the Department of Highways give most  serious consideration to the location of the Gibsons bypass to  the north of present development  in the area adjacent to the B.C.  Hydro transmission line. We  would suggest this route for the  following reasons.  1. This route presents none of  the problems which we have outlined.  2. This route could be constructed    almost    entirely    on  JfCrown land with a minimum of  inconvenience   and   expense   to  all concerned.  3. This route would be a bypass or cutoff in the truest sense  of the word as it would skirt  the perimeter of the usable residential lands.  4. This route although only  700 to 800 feet in elevation Would  provide a scenic highway on a  par with the famous Malahat  drive or Upper Levels highway,  a route which the people of British Columbia as a whole could  be truly proud of.  5. A highway in this location  would be more safe due to the  necessity of fewer access roads  and intersections.  6. This route would have  greater capacity for traffic as  h?gher speeds could .be maintained with increased safety to  a-M.  7. A highway in this location  would thus not become obsolete  in a few years time but would  h?ve the capability to meet the  i.eeds of vehicular traffic through  this   area   for-:many  years  to  come, truly a project "built for  the future."  For these reasons we would  most strongly endorse the construction of the Gibsons bypass  route in the location as we have  described.    .  In closing we would emphasize  that as ratepayers it is our privilege and right to control the orderly and phased development  of our community and it is the  charged duty of the Department  of Highways to be certain that  this right is not overruled.  ���GIBSONS HEIGHTS RATEPAYERS ASSOCIATION.  Youth killed  An inquest will be held into  the death in a road accident Saturday of Earl Julian, 17, of Sechelt Reserve. He was home-  bound from a dance according  to friends and was apparently  run over by a truck which' was  going towards Sechelt.  The accident occurred at  about 1 a.m. in vicinity of  Lockyer Road on the highway.  Details are few at present. Police are rounding up witnesses  for the inquest, date of which  has not been set. Police have  not released the name of the  truck driver.  VACATION   SCHOOL  The Port Mellon Community  Church will hold a Vacation  School from Monday, August 9  to Friday, August. 13. It will  start at 9:30 a.m. and finish by  noon. All children are welcome.  The fiiinal program for the school  wil. be held on Friday, August  13, starting at 7 p.m.  COMING UP from the Ferry  termkius the new highway will  have a seven percent grade to  the upper level. It crosses North  Road at Chamberlin road and  cuts across North Road again  close to Reed Road corner then  traverses southwesterly to Payne  Road where it levels off in, line  with Russell Road to continue  in a fairliy- straight line to about  half a mile or more beyond Seaview Cemetery corner.  One of the reasons for running the highway through the  area marked out was that the  contour level would be (followed  thus avoiding hills. To put the  road higher up would1 mean  haying ..various   grades.  eye Regional  board seats  With three Regional District  board seats open for election in  December, pro-tern* President  William Bryson urged ratepayers to rally around his organization, the Sunshine Coast Regional District Ratepayers Association, and get someone else elected.  The board members who vacate their seats in December  are Frank West, of Gibsons Rural; Chairman J. H. Tyner of  Pender Haiibour and Hubert  Slade, Selma Park.  Mr. Bryson also dispelled a  rumor that the organization', because it had opposed the gravel  proposition was against pro-  gresis. He said that the organization opposes environmental  rape.  He also informed the first general meeting of the association  last Thursday night in Wilson  Creek hall that he expected Municipal Minister Dan Campbell  and Hon. Isobel Dawson, Mackenzie MLA, would be at the  next association meeting.  There were about 50 persons  present in close to stifling heat  Thursday night of last week.  There were two definite items  passed and they were naming  L. A. Fraser of Se_*ma Park  chairman of a fact-finding committee. The second was the passage of a motion which first demanded time by ratepayers . to  be heard at Regional meetings  which was later changed to the  right to sit on boards.  The complete text of Mr. Bryson's statement which he read  to the meeting will be found on  another page in this issue.

"The question now rears its head with unsavory connotations.  Just what kind of a Regional board do we have? Does' poverty of  intellect always mianifest itself dn diictatarsfliiip, arrogance, insolence, pragmatism, egotism., hypocrisy and scurrilous beHiiavior?"  The above quotation comes from* remarks put before a meeting of the Sunshine Coast Regional District Ratepayers Association members last week.  Now these high-siounding words are usually'used sparingly because they carry a great weight on what cam be termed an attack  on one's competenice. One can wonder what Regional District  board members say about their "poverty of intellect." To assume  that poverty of intellect is confined to the Regional Board* is not  reasonable. The accusation* is too sweeping. Memibers of itlhe Regional board are ratepayers! too and have no desire to price themselves out of hearth and home.  Let's turn the situation around and! have the Regional board  members using the same words to describe the ratepayer association executive. What a howl there would be.  So, in the meanitime the Regional board will have to get along  without -resorting to the oratory which describes them "in the light  that their misaligned fiduciary responsibilities have brought them  to the ignominious conclusion, they no longer hold the trust and  support of the electorate; they hid1 behind their comfortable chairs  of deimagoguery and arrogance, ruling with their endowed attributes of insolence and dictatorshiip."  Mundlcipal authority a�� conlfined to following the path of a thin  silver thread while ratepayers can tramp all over the mui-Mped  scene breathing fire and brimstone.  One can only hope some of the selectors of word's for Sunshine  Coast Ratepayer consideraition will be elected to seats on the  board in Decemlbar. It is a hope and the Coast News would like to  see some on the board just for the experience. They will then  come into contact with the nitty-gritty.  An increase about due  ' The North American economy is in the imMst of an "ii_cijp(ient  yet still fragile" recovery, according to the Bank oif Montreal's  Business Review for July. "It is incipient," says the bank, "because only demand has revived, production has not; it is Ifiragiile  since inlffliation continues to be a serious problem."  However, "JiMlging by lecent developments in (retail sales and  inventories, a significant increase in production does. . .appear to  be about due," says the B of M.  At least two factors mitigate strongly against am early and sig-  ni-ioant decrease in the number of unemployed.  There is a large margin of excess capacity in the economy.  Therefore, a sizeable proportion of the initial production increase  will take pTiace through increases in hours worked and' in output  per mam-hour as existing machinery and equipment is more efficiently utilized."  The labor force is growing at such a rate that just to absOrfb  the increase would require a net annual increase of 200,000 jobs in  Canada and 1,600,000 in the U.S. In fact, ithe bank ptoints out that  in Canada it took 50 months to redWce the rate of unemployment  from its peak of 7.7 percent in the 1960 recession to below the near  full employment level of four percent.  Policy-makers in both countries have given top priority to reducing unemployment but that task has been complicated by the  persistence of inflation. They must find a podicy mix expfansiomary  enough to promote economic recovery but -not so expansionary  that any further buiM-up in inflationairy pressures would be encouraged.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  The provincial Labor Relations  board took only eight minutes  to decide against certification at  Port Mellon for the Pulp and  Paper Workers Union of Canada  The school board will change  its insurance program to the primary and excess plan which allows coverage on the greatest  asset to include all buildings.

Continued dry weather is expected to cause fewer vegetable  and flower exhibits for the  Farmers Institute Summer Fair.  Village Clerk Robert Bums  maintained council would be better advised to spend money on  an adding machine rather -than  on new (chairs for the council  chamber.  Alderman Joe Benner of Se-  chelt'-s council is determinied  that Sechelt should have an enlarged municipal hall, one large  enough to Contain a new municipal chamber, which could be  used as a court room and added  offices for various provincial  government branches now occupying other premises in Sechelt.  He brought the matter up at  the July 22 council meeting and  moved a motion that council  look into the problem immediately. This motion he modified  later to find out if government  officials are interested, enough  to offer confirmation they would  occupy saich space when the  building was ready.  Starting discussion on the project Mayor William Swain offered grave doubts that council  would toe able to obtain approval for such a project until the  village had expanded sufficien.-  ly to offer a better tax base. He  pointed1 out that if West Sechelt  was to be considered as part of  the village, council should remember that West Sechelt under  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District was paying taxation on  a ten mill basis plus added1 garbage taxes while Sechelt taxation was an 18 mill basis. He  left that for council to think  over.  Aid. Benner insisted that there  should be revised plans available  and Clerk Ted Rayner explained  that the only plan that Council  ever saw was presented by a  Mr. Cox of Block Bros quite  early this year. He listened to  council's ideas and said he  would incorporate them, in his  plans. Since that meeting council has heard nothing.  A sequence of events which,  led up to Aid. Benner's motion  of last week started back at the  second council meeting in May,  1970 when Mayor Swain proposed a 16 x 30 foot extension to  cost not more than $5,000 to  $6,000. He maintained the present building was becoming too  small. A couple of meetings later   Aid.   Norman   Watson   de  clared as council was only in  the council chamber about 52  hours a year, he could not see  the extension was warranted.  It was about this time last  year that council paid off the  last $4,000 of.debt on- the construction of the present ball  which has cost about $20,000  over a five year period.  First intimation of an increase  to the expansion proposal came  in October when council decided  on the larger type unit to include  a court room, plus provincial  government departmental offices. Later Village Enterprises, a  shopping centre on Cowrie St.,  protested to council by letter  arguing there was present space  now occupied or available.  About two months ago Aid.  Ben Lang and Ted Osborne registered their opposition to the  expansion. The issue was left to  simmer. Some questions were  asked about two meetings ago  and the mayor intimated indirectly that he did not think anything could be done with the village at its present size.  At the last council meeting  Aid. Benner wanted to know if  anything was being done and  complained that council does not  act and has been sitting on it  too long.  The expanded proposal has an  estimated cost of $30,000 but  Clerk Ted Rayner suggested that  what council was looking at was  an approximate $50,000 deal.  Mayor Swain said council originally sought an extension to  the council chamber but since  then it has grown and grown.  Council was intrigued with the  idea of a complex which would  see the fire hall, RCMP, municipal hall and government offices all Within the space of one  block. Clerk Rayner was opposed to the idea unless it would  carry itself financially. It would  be an ideal situation to have it,  however, he added.  The situation resolved itself into turning over what plans there  are to Fred Reyburn, Regional  building inspector for his  con-  Editor: We enjoyed the opening ceremony of Dougall Park,  Gibsons, (but personally I regretted that all participants with the  exception of the mayor and representatives of the Kinsmen club  were senior citizens. No facilities were provided, no shade  trees or benches with suitable  foot rests were provided ��� with  a temperature in the 80s!  Much interest was shown by  all who received the excellent  recuperative refreshments at the  Municipal Hall and viewed the  pictures ori the wall of "The  Shape of Things to Come." It  would be very interesting to  know where the money is coming ifrom.  ���DOROTHY L.

Really what we need to know is  that in living the Christian life  the significant element is allowing God to live in you and  through you.  ��� Study Galatians 2:20 for a moment. "I am crucified with  Christ: nevertheless I live; yet  not I, but Christ liveth in me.  And the life which I now live in  the flesh, I live by the faith of  the Son of God, who loved me  and gave Himself for me." We  can walk by faith here and have  the privilege to use the riches  of Christ for our strength in this  warfare and for the glory of  God. Notice in John 3 the portrayalof Jesus Christ.  In verse 31 we see that He  came from heaven and that he  is above all. He is not a created  being as we are. However He  was willing to become as we are  and humbled himself. How great  is God to allow His Son to leave  heaven' that men and women  might be restored to Himself.  Further in the same chapter we  are told that the Father has  given all things into Jesus  Christ's hand.  Whether you are or are not a  Christian it is well to remember  that we can ask of Christ that  which we have need and He will  give that which we require unto  us. Do not neglect so great a  salvation which God has provided in -Christ. This old world is  passing away. A new day is almost here. However remember  to serve the living and ascended  Lord Jesus Christ today.  sideration and report to council.  Mayor Swain said he was glad -  the matter had1 been* brought up  as it was beginning to look like  a lost cause. The clerk added  that if it was about haif the  proposed cost perhaps it could  be accomplished. That ended  the debate.  SECHEIT JEWELLERS  GUARANTEED  WATCH & JEWERY  REPAIRS  885-2421  N.

Harry, a victim of emphysema  had been a patient in St. Mary's  for more than a year and a half  He was always the eternal optimist, and1 had made up his  mind to board one of the two'  Orient Line ships that put into  Vancouver at intervals, then off  to the friendly isles in the south  seas.  A friend who visited Harry a  month or .sio ago was pleased  and surprised to find him waiting in the hospital's parking lot,  minus his special wheelchair  and manoeuvring with only the  aid of a cane. Harry was full of  his plan, he would ship out of  Vancouver. He would not admit  that such a voyage encumbered  by a wheel chair might present  a problem. He would hire one of  the stewards to tote him around  on board ship and native chair  pushers had to be a dime a dozen once you got to this friendly  Polynesian archipelago, tucked  away in the Western Pacific  Ocean.  Harry had made up his mind  he would -not be cheated of this  last dream so he sent away for  all available travel (folders and  literature. It was while waiting  for these, death caught up with  him.  While Harry Davey's family,  his mother Beatrice, now in Pow  ell River, a brother Thomas in  Gibsons and a second brother  George of Vancouver, together,  with his many Mends, grieve at  his passing, there are many who  will remember him best as a  kindly dreamy philosopher type  with ain unifailing quirky sense  of humor, an omnivorous reader  and in him lay the latent talent  of a writer.  John and Elnora Bunyan, longtime close friends and neighbors  cuf Harry, found in him a sharp  mind,   an   alert   observer   and  deep thinker on almost any topic. Captain Bunyan was particularly delighted to get into a  da'scussion on the subject of astronomy. John also reminded1 us  that Davey left at least two reminders of his handiwork in  Gibsons, the chimney in the firehall and that oif the old bank  building at the foot of the wharf  now occupied by Winston's  Sporting Goods store, not forgetting the Elephant trees, formerly in Harry's front yard, one  now in Holland Park, the other  in the St. Mary's Hospital  grounds, p-_ur_ted where Hany  could keep an eye on it from his  bed.  In the later years, Harry  found contentment and consolation in the philosophy of Yoga,  and so in accordance with his  expressed wishes there would be  no formal service. As a member  of the Memorial Society of B.C.  his body will be cremated and  later from the family boat, his  ashes wil be scattered to the  sea far out in the gulf.  So hail and farewell to Harry  Davey, Mr. Kynooks (Mr. Tomorrow) so named by he band  of the Bella Coola Indians.  I  Gibsons Hardware (1966) Ltd.

Regional matters  own affair says  Pender Harbour  Pender Harbour and District  Ratepayers Association has informed the Regional District  board by letter that it will not  join the Sunshine Coast Regional  Ratepayers Association,  Its reasons are given- in the  following letter which was read  at Monday  night's   meeting  of  the Regional District board:  Dear Sirs:  The directors1 of the Pender  Haii'oour and District Ratepayers Association recognizing that  the Regional District is not a  municipality but a federation of  autonomous areas, do not intend  to become associated with the  proposed Sunshine Coast Regional Ratepayers Association.  The Pender Harbour and Dis>-  trict Ratepayers - Association!  which is the largest of its kind  in the region, recognizes that  their problems as they relate to  the Regional Board can best be  dealt with through their area  representative on the board and  they do not intend to. delegate  the solution of these problems  to a regional* ratepayers association which would have no power  over the area representative.  We have elected to the board  our representative who has been  guided at all times by our recommendations. To abrogate  this position would, in the minds  of the directors of the Pender  Harbour andl District Ratepayers Association, be ridiculous  and quite possibly calamatous.  It is the intention of this association to recommend to the  ratepayers associations of the  other areas that a ratepayers  council be. established for the  region with representation on  such a council limited to ratepayer associations of the various  areas. Such a council would deal  with problems of mutual interest and make recommendations  to the various associations as to  their solution.  ���J. H. Tyner, secretary  Pender Harbour and District  Ratepayers Association.  Want some bees?  Developing a synthetic honeybee sex attractaht is the goal of  Dr. Rolf Booh, a scientist at Can  ada Agin-cuLture's Ottawa Re-  seaiich Station. The synthetic  chemical could become an important ingredient for future  success in the beekeeping industry. It could be used to keep  colonies together during the  peak honey-producing period of  spring. If beekeepers could supplement the natural supplly of  sex attralctant during the honey  flow, they could keep the colonies together and producing more  honey.  Have yon heard of  Baha'U'llah?

ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE OPENING SOON  OF A BRANCH OF THE FIRM IN SECHELT  WATCH THIS SPACE FOR OPENING DATE  Garbage: Secretary Charles  Gooding said garbage contractors report a greatly increased  demand for service -which has  resulted in the need' for additional round traps to the dumps.  There has been no need to  change the schedule and the service is operating as smoothly as  it does in the off season. The  problem oif access to the dumps  due to indiscriminate dumping  on approach roads is a continual nuisance particularly to the  contractors who are the main  users and must dump in the appropriate areas.  The new dump site at Pender  Harbour is still awaiting approval from the Pollution Control  branch.  Street Lighting: Mr. Gooding  requested directors concerned  with street lighting in their areas  to make recommendations for'  additional lighting or changes  in lighting so that B.C. Hydro-  may be requested to carry out  the work and put the lighting  into operation before winter.  Administration: Together with  Directors West, Wolverton,  Swain and Almond and Mr. Cuylits  he  attended   the  Regional  District seminar at Nanaimo,  June 25. The meeting was more  iniformative and active than that  previously held in Victoria and  he believed several items discussed were of interest to this board  One suggestion was anade on  the handling of the problem of  acquisition of land for various  purposes by Regional Districts.  The suggestion made, if he interpreted it correctly, was that the  simple function of Acquisition of  Land for Public Use would suffice and receive the blessing of  the Department of Municipal Af;  fairs. Presumably a small aa>  nual sum would be included in  the amendment to the Letters  Patent under the half mill provision of the Act to cover legal  and administrative expenses1 involved in the transfer of property,  Planning: Planning director E.  R. Cuylits reported' that initial  work  has1   commenced' on   the  long range planning study.  "I  have spoken to the advisory plan  ning. commiittiee of the Roberts  ���Creek area concerning this study  and I hope this citizen's group  will report their views regarding  future growth on  the Sunshine  Coast.   I   hope   other   citizens  groups  as  well   as   individuals  will voice their opinion before  this study is completed," he said  A   conference-   at   Nanaimo,  June 25, sponsored by the provincial    government    provided  some promising indications concerning co-operation in the planning field. The meeting provided  a forum to voice complaints and  legislative problems in the field  of planning. It is to Ibe hoped  that future conferences will' be  more of a workshop seminar and  less of a lecture type of session.  CASH FOR GUNS  WALT NYGREN SALES  (1971)  LTD.  Gibsons, 886-9303  FRANK  E.

Tyner, chairmaan oif the  Regional District board, when  the board discussed accusing  comipliaints received from the  ratepayer associ'aitibn. Here is  what Mr. Bryson said.  Your executive attended the  meeting of the -Sunshine Coast  Regional District board, July 26.  Representation was in keeping  with the policy of a sdnicere and  genuine interest in our local government, andl shall continue to  a-tend all meetings.  A questionnaire of six basic  questions, published in full by  our local newspapers-, was submitted July 14 to the Regional  Board for interpretatiioni.  Under correspondence, Secretary C. F. Gooding read the ti-  tle headings only, indicating that  the board as a whole have knowledge of the contents; thereon.  Chairman J. H. Tyner received  the questionnaire.  At this* point, we and the gallery sat in expectation of forthcoming answers. The lack of in-  SNORKELS, MASKS, FINS  DIVING RENTALS  WALT NYGREN SALES  (1971) LTD.

Chairman Tyner ruled tha the  letter be turned over to the  finamce committee for its report.  Having so ruled, he asked for  and got a motion to Me. Of the  six board members present not  one so much as blinked an eye  in protest of so blatant regard  for the public. It would appear  that the questions so embarrassed them, in the light that their  misai-igined fiduciary responsibilities have brought them to  the ignominious conclusion, they  no longer hold the trust and support of the. electorate; they hid  behind their comlfortajble chairs  of demagogueiry and arrogance,  ruling with their endowed attributes of insolence and dictatorship.  The question now rears its  head, with unsavory oon-iota-  tions. Just what kind of a Regional Board do we have? Does  poverty of intellect always manifest itself in dictatorship, arrogance, insolence, pragmatism,  egotism, hypocrisy and scurril-  louis> betoavior?  Why could1 not the board have  been honest enough to truthifuMy  answer questions without evasion and equivocation? When will  they get off of their self styled  and warped mayoralty concepts;  of once having drunk the ambrosia, sweet nectar of the gods,  are therefore above the final  court of appeal, who are the people.  This association was treated in  an inexcusable manner. What  the board fail�� to admit to them  selves, is the fact that this association are the people. The un-  diS'guised attempt to muzzle this  association, m the fact that we  were told we had no business  giving a copy of our questionnaire to the press, that we should  have given- it to the board first,  for study, and that under these  ��� circumstances was- beyond consideration, is tantamount to  a  . cra^teX: against  the  people. ^ We .  will-not acquiesce. r       :  - The Sunshine boast Regional  District Ratepayers Association  is hereby giving notice to the  Sunshine Coast Regional District  board:  When the Sunshine Coast Regional District Ratepayers Association asks a question, we  want a meeting to resolve these  questions, and for the board to  consider the. conclus_ons of this  NOTICE  To All Langdale Water Users  The water pressure in your area wil! be increased on or  shortly after September 1, 1971.

The Regional Ratepayers association recognizes immutable  facts:  1. This Regional District presently consists of Areas A, B, C,  D, E and F and the municipaiM-  ties of Gibsons and iSechelt.  2. The areas mentioned! have  or have had, community associations, waterboardis', ratepayers  groups, or some loose form of  local interest.  3. Interest in governments  waxes and wanes, depending on  the issues of the motmeaiit.  4. A certain amount of good  natured' rivalry exists between  areas.  5. Each area has problems  peculiar and germaine to that  area alone.  6. Each area has the desire  to maintain its autonomy.  7. Each and every area has  presented petitions, briefs and  letters to various levels of government, with most unsatisfactory, results.  8. The need of position of  strength in dealing with these  levels of government.  Peoples have bemoaned the  fact they were getting nowhere.  What was needed was ���-. But,  no one wanted to be ithe first in  line. As a result of this desire  and obvious need, a group took  the bull by the horns, formed a  regional association, and are  now trying to weld together these  same loosely knit groups, within  the framework of the Sunshine  Coast  Regional  District  Rate  payers Association, who with  their assistance can co-ordinate  an au-horitative presentation to  any branch- of government.  We reiterate- eatego__ca_ly, the  fundlamental principles of our  foundation.  This association heeds; the support of the individual ratepayer,  both financially and -personal  pafriticipation.  We are desirous of a duly elected area director, from each  area, elected to this executive.  We do not recommend existing .ratepayers, community or  other organizations to disband  or to relinquish their charters.  We encourage them to exercise  their franichisie vigorously.  We do accept individual membership into ithis regional district  ratepayers association.  We solicit membership of all  ratepayers, community and wa-  lerboard associations or groups,  on a per capita fee.  We recommend and encourage  each area to resolve their individual problems at their own  level, bringing their conclusions  before the regional ratepayers  association, -for further study and  action.  We do, for the present, recognize the -flfice of area director  elected to the Regional District  board.  We recognize the inalienable  right oif every individual to be  governed by a just government,  reflecting the peoples* mandates.  We recognize freedom of  speech, freedom from fear and  the freedom to fight irrespons  ible gaverftiments.

Here is the  first one. We suggest you might  clip them for a scrapbook.  If your property is unattended  for a prolonged period there are  several simple ��� but important  precautions that should be taken.  It is a good, idea to 1st periodically your valuable property  but a good place to begin planning for an extended stay away  from home is by compiling a de--  tailed1 inventory. Then follow  this checklist.  Insurance: '��� The requirements  of your insurance contract must  be met for it to remain in effect. Periodic checks of the property (at least every 30 days)  will be adequate for most fire  and theft coverage. Protection  from damage due to failure of  heating equipment requires  more frequent checks. Check  with -your insurance representative. .  General Preparations: Good  preparation should prevent property loss; if it does not, it will  minimize the inconvenience. Arrange for surveillance of your  house by a neighbor or relative;  don't expect police to guard it.  A goingjaway announcement in  the social pages is an invitation  to trouble.  Stop all deliveries ��� mail, papers, milk for examples.  Notify your creditors and  cancel debts if necessary.  Arrange for night lighting ��� a  neighbor or an inexpensive ($15)  timer ils adequate.  Store highly valued items,  jewelry, clothing, antiques, and  the like in another location.  Place bicycles, mowers and  tool's in the garage and lock it.  Dispose of any perishable  foods.  Leave an itinerary or contact  location with a neighbor or  your employer and notify RCMP  or the local police department  in order to facilitate contact in  an emergency.  Leave your property with a  "lived-in" look.  Periodic Checks:  Arrange with someone to occasionally check your property  and maintain -the lived-in appearance.  Pick up mail, flyers and circulars.  In summer, keep the grass  mowed and yard groomed. This  for protection, not aesthetics.  Ensure that lighting is maintained.  Final check: Ensure that all  doors-, windows and potential entrances are locked.  Check faucets and electrical  devices; unplug all electrical appliances not required for home  safety. .

That is just what happened,  when at a very tender aige Grace  Beiva, Charles, Bruce, Ralph  and Howard Woodsworth and the  six Inglis youngsters, Helen,  Kathleen, Hugh, Allan, Eric and  Jack, all of a comparative age  range were turned loose in the  big white house on the hill, and  what a rich, rewarding experience it turned out to be to every member!  The great experiment came  about in 1917 when James Woods  worfth, Ms wife and the turbulent, but loyal-*o-the*core faimily  came to Gibsons seeking sanctuary and solace, after toeing set  aside by his church in Winnipeg  for having dared to ^n4|jft��f,,  against conscription in World  War One.  Those were grim tod_)worn days  for the Woodsworth_. Fiifty-iour  years ago in this ��rude outpost  logging a-rad fishing .siettHeiment.  James, the father, by no means  a robust personi, .worked at the  gruelling task of longshoreman  to put food on his family'ist tajble.  It was in Gibsons he wrote two  of his best known books, My  Neighbor, and Steanger Within  our Gates, both every bit as valid today as when they were so  painstakingly written. Here  Woodsworth also direaimed of the  day when he would be vindicated1 and free once more to return  to the churning political arena  in Manitoba.  Return he did, to Ibecome flag  bearer of the then allegedly red-  tinged Manitoba Labor Party.  He was elected to the federal  house only to be tried and again  convicted, this time as one of  ithe ringleaders of the Great  Winnipeg Strike in 1919. Woods-  worth only just missed being  impeached and jailed along with  his fellow rebels.  But for the growing Woods-  worth and Inglis tribes, life was  one big ball, with a bit of work  thrown in now and then for igood  balancing measure. Jack Inglis  recalls so many Ifunny, as well  as serious things that happened  in the Woodsworth',s part of the  big white house on the hill. To  his temily Mr. Woodsworth was  always addressed at father. . .  Father did this and Father did  that.. .never the closer more endearing term Dad used by the  Inglis children when referring  1io their father. It is no wonder  that   children   and  grown   folk  Blake  C.  Alderson,  D.C.  CHIROPRACTOR  Post Office Building, Secheli  TUES..

Them there was the business  of the ladleiTike spoon with the  plating rubbed off right down to  the brass base when you spooned and'gave a brassy taste. This  article was referred to as Father's Jail Spoon and was paraded with great ceremony, especially when1 company came to  tea. Grace Mclnnes, the federal  member and eldest daughter is  now custodian of Father's Jail  Spoon.  In those earlier days in Gibsons the gang could never figure why Grace nearly always  went around with a book stuck  in her face. Charles, the eldest  of the Woodsiworth crew, was*  the dare-devil of the outfit. This  ventursome spirit he carried  with good results: right up to his  first job of reporting on the Province. The old-diners in the Province news-ioom to this day say  that "Charlie was a helluva  good reporter." It was while he  was on that paper that be climbed Mount Siessie near CMUi-  wack along with- a rescue crew  to bring oust information of the  air disaster to a' TCA airliner  which crashed on a jagged saw-  toothed pinnacle, on a fogged-  ira December evening, carrying  to their death all aboard in one  of Canada's worst air crashes.  Charles goes at a more sedate pace these days, eyeing the  world somewhat sardonically  from the editor's chair in the Ottawa Journal. Dr. Ralph Woods-  worth, the next son, is ah anaesthetist at the Vancouver Gen-  era! Hospital; Bruce, the geologist, a teacher in the Okanagan;  Howard is in the civil- service,  Ottawa;. Beiva, tftte 'Second  Woodsworth daughter, now Mrs.  Ralph Staples, resides in Ottawa. Mrs. Woodsworth, the mother of the tribe, who sit-prising-  ly enough survived the earlier  hardships and heart aches also  lives in Ottawa.  Jack Inglis must have been a  favorite of Mother Woodswortli,  for she saved Mm her husband's  sweatty, wornout Borsilano hats  which James invariably wore;  wore them until the last bit of  shape had depairted. "But they  were swell ffishinig hats just the  same," said Jack, "shaped just  'to match' up with the rather  pointed features and bearded  face of their original owner."  Somi-atMng bright and shining  went out of the lives of the  Inglis children, never to return,  when the Woodsworths packed  up and departed from Gibsons.  Jack Inglis recalls the charm  of Father James, Both he and  his wife w-ere well travelled,  particularly in their latter years,  and on their return) from each  junket, whether it was Japan,  Egypt, any far-away place on  the map of the world, they  would give an impromiptu travelogue at the dlrop of the hat.  Even if it was just a small  group of ehildre-ft seated around  him in his own home Woods-  worth held his audience spellbound, even as he was to do in  the house of commons, (the senate or any public" sgath-ering.  Through all his long and active life, James Woodsworth  could always count on the un-  fadlinlg love and loyalty of his  wife and fanni-fy.  Growing up with the Woodte-  worths in the old Inglis home on  the hill was an exciting, stimulating and never-to-be-iforgotten  experience all of us will carry  through our lives." That's -the  way Jack Inglis recalls it.  -??^f __^_  -" *'"',{ &i%wm  PENINSULA  BOARDING KENNELS  CLIPPING  GROOMING  BATHING  MRS.

His father was a sea-  captain on the China coast and  Harry grew up during this period' of Chinese history when economic, social, political and military fadtors influenced itsl  course. Harry's education went  as far as first year at the Uni-  versite de TAurore, a French  language university in Shanghai.  His departure from the Far  East with his 'family at the age  of 19 marked the end oif his academic life. A new life in the Old  World awaited him1. Cirouansitan-  ces finally led him to a life at  sea on which he sailed1 with' Norwegian arid Swedish merchant-  ships until his arrival in Powell  River. He became a landed immigrant in 1961 and started to  work in the steam .Slant of the  local paper mill. He was actively involved in co___n_unity affairs during the following years  and became a Canadian citizen  in 1967.  About a year later he became  a member of the New Democratic party. Previous invitations to  join the other parties were refused on the grounds that he was  unaoquai--ted with their policies  and politics ini -general and there"  fore unprepared to make a  choice at the time. He felt that  a person, once committed to a  belief, should dedicate himself  totally to his belief and become  an active participant in the  cause of his choice.  Harry now serves a-s president  of the NDP Mackenzie constituency. He attended the recent  provincial convention in which  he took an active interest as a  delegate. He came away from  the convention' with a greater  conviction and a determination  that the painty in this riding  should go out and create a favorable public image by getting  itself involved with the problems of the constituency. He  feels that social and economic  justice can be better achieved  by a New Democratic Party in,  power and that it's time they  got away from an opposition  complex.  His qualifications1 as a multi-  linguist, a world traveller and  an individual concerned with human misery and a lack Of social  and economic justice in our society are definite assets in an NDP  federal candidate.  __  rlEY KIDS  4 00  Saturday.

His statement  referred to general damages.  Also, he received 10% for legal  costs but charged me 20% of  what he collected. My lawyer  took sick and is now dead and I  never did get an explanation.  What should I do?  Answer: We think we can explain what happened. General  damages reifer to such uncertain  amounts of compensation as pain  and sUf-ering. This term also  includes loss of wages. Special  damages, refer to items' which  represent particular sums of  money, such as doctors' bills,  medical expenses, car damage,  etc. Let us assume the case was  settled for;;$10,000 brofcen; down  as follows:  General Damages:  Pain & Suffering $6,000  Loss of Wages^  Special Damages:  Car damage  Doctor  Medical Expenses  Sub Total'  Contribution to legal costs  10% of $9,000 900  Disbursements 100  Total $10,000  (The above is the way the defendant (the person being sued,  Sir his insurance company or  beir lawyers) looks- at it.  There is, however, more than  me way of looking at this. The  tern contribution to legal costs  s merely a [bargaining gambit  Mid doesn't mean very much. In  ;very case the loser is normally  ���bliged to pay certain costs to  he winner. These are based on  wo variable factors ��� the  nmount of money involved and  he number of steps taken in the  awsuit. This matter is an involved one and has been the sub-  eot of an earlier article.  Without.;going into the ques-  ion ��� let us assume that the  proper sum payable by way oif  posts between the parties is $400.  "X certainly wouldn't normally  >e anywhere near $900. The 10%  igure is simply customary when  settling such a claim. Disbursements are simply the monies expended in the handling of the  iase for such items as the issu-  hg of the summons, process  eiwer's fees, transcripts' of ex-  juminations for discovery, etc.  | A more realistic way of looking at the figures is as follows:  General Damages $7,500  Special Damages 2,000  posts?   ���������'/ 400  isbursements 100  Total $10,009  It will 'be seen that the differ-  nce between the agreed contri-  ution to costs and the costs pay-  bfe, $500 (that is, $900 minus  400) has disappeared into the  eneral damages portion of the  laim and may be regarded1 as  art of pain and suffering.  Your lawyer's $>ay out is, how-  ver, something else again. What  e charges you and1 the costs he  ollects from the other side have  no bearing on one another. It is  (Copyright)  customary for lawyers to charge  20% .for  the handling of these  cases.  His pay out will,  therefore, look like this:  Doctor $    700  Medical expences 300  Lawyer:  Amount collected $10,000  Less disbursements 100  20% fee on 9,9*00     1,980  Plus disbursements 100  Payable to you 6920  Total $10,000  It is to be noted that the disbursements are subtracted before the calculation of the 'percentage fee, otherwise the lawyer would be charging 20% on  monies paid out and received  back which would hardly ibe  fair. In the example given, the  lawyer has paid the disbursements, himself and is getting  them back. If you paid a retainer and this was used for-dis-  bursements, you would, of  course, be credited "With1 the  amount of the retainer;  If you paid any of the doctor  or medical expenses your lawyer  would, dt course, repay you, instead of ipaying them. Check  your figures and see if your file  wasn't handled1 something like  the example in this- article. If  not ��� see the executor of your  lawyer's)'estate.
