C of C reviews summer work  Gibsons   Chamber   of   Com-  a merce activities during July and  August were outlined at Monday  night's meeting, the first fall  session. Winston Robinson, secretary,   reported   to   Chairman  . Larry Labonte the Sea Cavalcade barbecue netted $301.  Mr. Labonte discussing the  tourism booklet on Gibsons, a  joint publication between the  ���chamber and the Mainland South  west tourism- branch said he had  received information from Mike  Ovenall,   director   of   Mainland  : Southwest from Seattle that the  Gibsons booklet was the most  sought after of the entire provincial range of booklets.  Mrs; Chadwick who was in  charge of the Tourist booth on  Sunnycrest Plaza reported the  (booth was   open 98   days   and  helped 1,577 visitors with their  problems. She reported visitors  came from all over the world,  listing the many countries from  which they came.  Chairman   Labonte   reported  plans were ready for the area-  Recreation Centre and it was  likely there could be some action this fall.  Winston Robinson said some  work would have to be done on  the boat ramp before next summer and he suggested that Dayton & Knight, planners, would  be able to offer the chamber  suggestions on the problem.  Bernard Littlejohn of Tetrahedron Ski Club outlined the club's  problems to the chamlber. (Details of his talk will be expanded  in an article for next week's issue.)  2,000 Amchitka  protests  More than 2,000 signatures are  expected on a petitoh from Gibsons area opposing the -Amchit^  ka nuclear explosion.  John Mc^evin writing on behalf of Local J297 IBPS&PWM,  sent the following letter to the  Coast News:. . . '  May.I use your good offices to  thank the more than 2,000 people who signed the petition  against the Amchitka nuclear  explosion. The most interesting  thing was that only 15 people refused to sign, mainly doit of cynicism. . ;  To those who despair of our  youth, their interest - and deter-  minatibh to assist in stopping  this madness, renewed1 my faith  in the youngers of this area-. On  (behalf of the IBPS&PMW many  thanks.  --JOHN McNEVIN.  At last Sunday's meeting of  Texada Island NDP club, Donald Lockstead reports the following resolution was passed:  That a letter be sent to President Nixon registering a vigorous protest against the Amchitka nuclear test. This1 explosion  presents a threat to all mankind  and its effect on the Pacific  coast can be catastrophic.  Copies were to be sent to  Prime Minister Trudeaiu, NDP  leader David Lewis and Hon.  Jack Davis of the environment  departmerit.  Thursday's meeting of the  Roberts! Creek Community Association was held in ttie newly  remodelled kitchen of the community hall: A centennial1 project, the room, now panelled in  brown, with a white ceiling, recessed lighting and ivory-topped  counters whieh are fitted with  easy rolling castors, is a great  improvement and a joy for those  who cater to dEnnen, Morgas-  bords and so on.     .  It is possible that the centennial committee may come up  'with; a hew stove I and hot water  tank ialso; Mrs. Cl^ri�� Baniesi, -  chairman of the committee; gave  a report on the work and method of financing. Cost was $2780  Mr. Stan Rowland, chairman  of the association, read a letter from the Pender Harbour  Ratepayers Association suggesting that, since there is a similarity of interests among this association and others in the region, that it would be to their  mutual benefit to unite, or set  up a council, to decide how best  to deal with regional matters.  After discus sion it was voted to  table the letter until the next  meeting- when it is expected that  Mr.   Harry   Almond,   Regional  board representative, will be  present to explain some pertinent questions.  A notice of motion to amend  the bylaws was put to a vote and  carried.  Mr. C. Gilker, speaking on the  water. situation, stated that the  bond issue awaits word from  .Victoria.  Attention was brought to the  association of the deplorable  condition of Lockyer and other  roads. As this is not the jurisdiction of the association only advice could be given. Some members suggested that, if gravel  screens weire us_d>7ro_.d:; wbr-k  might be more lasting and satisfactory.  Work is going ahead on the  renovating of the hail, Mr. Ron  McSavaney stated in his report,  and he outlined the changes to  be made.  Mrs. McSalvaney made a report on the library which is.going along well, arid Mrs. J. C.  Gritt, treasurer of the association, in her report, showed the  books to be in the black.  Approximately 35 members attended the meeting which concluded with coffee and doughnuts and friendly chat.  Union doubles scholarship fund  Local 297 has doubled the  value of the scholarship fund set  up one year ago, to provide a  ���grant to a graduating student of  Elphinstone High School, who intends to obtain post^second'ary  education in an institution other  than a university.  The fund will be known as the  David Albert Hill Memorial  scholarship. In honor of a man  respected throughout the pulp  and paper industry unions in  B.C.; a resident of this community, active trade unionist, past  president of Local 297, and a-  man whose agile mind, formidable memory and quick wit were  always at the service of those  who were in need of help. Even  in sickness he refused to think  of himself and continued to work  for those things he believed in,  until his untimely death this past  summer. The memlbership of Local 297 hope that T>y this small  act Brother Hill's name will be  honored and perpetuated in our  community as a true humanitarian, a symbol of all that is  good in trade unionism.  The fund will provide an annual $200 scholarship. Recipient  of the award will be determined .  by, school authorities under .  ground rules laid down by Local  297, and to be eligible, a student  does not harve to toe related to a  member of Local 297.  Fred Corley, president of Lo- .  cal 297, presented a $200 cheque  to Miss Evelyn Gokool, who has  been selected as the 1971 winner. Miss Gokool intends to study dietetics at Capilano College.  The presentation was made at  the Elphinstone Graduation exercises, Saturday.

Garbage generally is a messy problem, particularly if you aire  on the picfcup gang. Gibsons mayor and aldermen are not in the  pickup gang but they have a garbage problem.  This problem arises because of some arrangement as regards  the violation of territory between two garbage services. This should  be settled without much difficulty.  However there is one angle to which Gibsons council sh)Diuld  give serious consideration. Council will have to face it sometime  and that time might as well be now.  It involves compulsory garbage collection within the village  area. Some -council" members have argued that you cannot make  {people pay for what they do not want. This is a very weak sftand  to take. Some people object to some taxes as now assessed.  Take water as a prime example. There were complaints that  the charge covered more water than they would use, so why not  lhave meters and pay on a metered basis. Council promptly replied  that water users were buying a service and not a quantity of water.  They added that it also increased the value of property.  Applying the same reasoning to garbage collecting, it is a service, one which all citizens should welcome as it does help keep  properties cleaner and thus enhance values.  To suggest the public should not be asked to pay for what they  do not want could be an invitation to those who battled against  paying the present water tax, to become more vocal. Council has  given them a basis for argument.  Gibsons population is approaching the 2,000 mark and it is time  Gibsons council stopped waffling over the garbage situation. Put it  on taxes and quit waffling. To say we are getting it more cheaply  under the present system is not fair to those who are having their  garbage picked up. How albout those who are dumping theirs wherever they can��� without paying!  If, council feels it shouldput it before the ratepayer in the form  of a vote during the coming, efectibn campai^i, tlie Coast News is  prepared to support it without waffling.   . j    . 1  _t . ��� /        '���'���'.'.'.    ' '��� XX   ���'���   ���������.*.     '  .. '���  A ruling of interest  A development in school financing of which more may be heaird  arises firom a decision by the California Supreme court  The court rulied that scfhool funding in California based on property tax is unconstitutional on grounds it discriminates against the  poor. This hits an issue nagging education and state officials  throughout the 'United States and has created interest in Canada.  Local California districts obtain anywhere from 30 to 90 percent  (the same as in British Columbia) mostly through property taxes.  At various- times the same argument has been raised among  our municipal and sdhool officials. The crux of the matter lies in  the values of property.  For example California's Baldwin Park area pays $5.48 per  $100 of property valuation while Bevei_y Hiitls paid only $2.38 per  $100. Baldwin Park property is valued at $3,706 per dhild; Beverly  Hills $59,885 per child, which means that Beverly Hills can spend  more than twice as much per child at the same tax rate.  It is easy to surmise the same ratio exists in British Columbia  which while not applying to the average homeowner who benefits  under the government system of covering education costs, it does  affect businesses who do not receive homeowner grants yet are  liable for total school taxes. The variation in property values there  would show up quite distinctly.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  A sign readintg Site of Gibsons-  Port Mellon Centennial Pool, has  (been positioned on Gibsons Elementary School grounds.  Two miles from Sechelt Evelyn Creelman was lifted from the  water while trying to swim from  Nanaimo to Sechelt.  The district school population  was 2,108 attending the 12  schools including 629 at secondary schools.  10 YEARS AGO  One thousand feet of additional floor area was added to Sechelt's Legion Hall in an expansion program.  Bob Ritchey, his wife and  daughter Del from Texada Island landed on the G-bsons-Se-  chelt airport in the first commercial flight landing.  Seahelt-Wilson* Creek Ratepayers association decided to continue in spite of poor support.  15 YEARS AGO  Clarence Joe and sons Gilbert  and Terry escaped serious injury when their 38 ft. trawler  blew up in Jervis Inlet.  Sechelt's council has requested B.C. Electric instal seven  more street lights.  Port Mellon retired its steam  engine, Old 33, for a diesel-elec-  tric locomotive.  20 YEARS AGO  Boards of Trade in Gibsons  and Powell River have combined  to get roads improved in the district.  Gibsons Board of Trade wall  try to get at the facts connected' with a proposed $45,000 water  bylaw being considered by council.  James Sinclair, M.P., will be  asked to see if the name Home  Island can be changed to Salmon  Rock as that is the riame it is  known by.  Inflation also bi^  European problem  Leith McGrandle in the Sunday  Telegraph (London) outlines the  ways the Common Market countries are coping with their own  inflationary problems.  Whatever d_fjferences may separate European countries, they  are united at the moment in a  great battle against the common  enemy, Inflation.  In the last year every government in Europe has been forced  to take some action to stem the  rise in prices. They have ranged  from a gentle ticking off for  employers who grant hefty wage  -rises to outright freezes.  As the recent report from the  Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development  (O.E.C.D.) showed, inflation has  got a firm hold on the Continent  as well as in Britain.  We still have the unwelcome  distinction of topping the league  (alongside Eire) with-consumer  prices rising at an annual rate  of almost 9% against France's  6%, Germany's 6}_>% and Italy's  But the E.'E.C. countries are  worried as well. First, this is a  faster rate than they have  experienced in neeent years.  Secondly, as in Britain, inflation  is politically embarrassing, especially in Germany with its  memories of the hyper inflation  experienced during the early  1920's. Thirdly, wage costs continue to mount and send the  price spiral upwards.  Recent wage settlements in  France, for example, have been  running at an annual rate of  12% and well over 10% in Italy  and Germany.  General monetary and fiscal  measures have been used, aisiri  Britain. The Europeans have  also been readier to introduce  more direct controls over prices  and wages than we have in this  country and many of them still  have some sort of . incomes  policy. Here is a brief summary  of the current anti-inflationary  measures  FRANCE:  On wages the government has?;  increasingly developed one-yearly agreements with the unions  toy which wage increases are  geared to the retail price index  plus a 2% "real" increase in  purchasing power. Started in the  State sector especially with the  railway, gas and electricity  workers this type of agreement  has now spread to the private  sector. Renault and Snecma  have recently negotiated similar  agreements.  Two problems have risen. The  higher-than-expected rate of inflation has forced some agreements to be "renegotiated"  after eight months rather than  a year. Secondly, any system  geared to an index runs the  risk of reinforcing the inflationary trend.  On prices, the government has-  depended on a gentlemen's  agreement with- private industry  not to raise prices without  justification and1 to notify the  Ministry of new prices a month  in advance.  The government has reserve  powers to enforce price freezes  and only last month published  a list of companies1 whose prices  were frozen and Jn some cases  reduced compulsorily by up to  4%.  GERMANY:  The Bonn government has  ���tried to develop a voluntary  type of incomes policy through  "Concerted Action" where  guidelines are set for the sort  of rates of price and wage increases the government would  like to see.  The 1971 "orientation data"  on prices and wages aims at a  reduction in the rise in consumer prices to 3% and the annual  increase in earnings per employee to 7-8% in 1971 settlements  But this podicy has run into increasing opposition, especiaiily  from the unions who have argued that the guidelines (at least  for wages) are too low.  ITALY:  While inflation is a problem,  the growing recession in -Jtaly  is higher in the Italian- government's list of priorities. After  the major strikes and- wage explosions in the autumn of 1969,  there was some cooling off last  year in wage settlements and  the appearance of a worrying  trend towards recession).  The -government has tried to  cope with inflation by a combination of discreet pressure on  industrialists, index-irelated wage  settlements and some price controls. But anti-recessionaory policies are _ikely to dominate the  government's thinking this year.  THE NETHERLANDS:  The long-standing system of  price and wage' surveillance  which once led to Holland's, income policy being hailed as an  example for other countries has  recently run into- some* major  problems. T h e gentlemanly  agreements between employers  and unions which kept the policy'  working in the 1950s and early  1960s have broken down: Inflation forced the Dutch govern-  , ment last November to introduce  a policy of general price restraint until. March, 1971, which  has since beenr exended. A limit  of 5% on newly negotiated wage  increased was also introduced  to cover the first'six months of  this year.  BELGIUM  Belgium managed to keep the  inflation rate down to 4% in  1970 making it one of the best  performances in Europe. This  was done partly toy a continuation of its long term wage policy  with settlements geared' to the  retail index and more direct controls introduced in 1970. These  included an extension of the  notification for price increases  from one month to three months  and selective price freezes. The  introduction of Turnover Value  Tax early this year Was complicated Be-giUm'santi-in-lationary  measures. -Current wage settlements are running around 12%.  Outside the Common ' Market  price   freezes   or   very   severe  ~i>rice controls arc ire operation at  J^the moment W; Denmark, Fin-  ! land, Norwayfah&-Sweden.  It will take some time before  the effectiveness (or lack of success)   of   the  policies   can  be  measured.    Certainly    in  "the  sihort run the O.E.C.D. were not  terribly  happy albout  the  outcome  in  Britain although  this  admittedy was before the recent  C.B.I, initiative.  In Europe as a whole, where  the average rise in prices is; still  rising by an average of Wi%,  the outlook for 1971 is, at best,  a modest slowing, down in the inflation rate despite the array of  anti-inflationary weapons being  tried by European governments.  Minute message  And they went forth and  preached everywhere, the Lord  working with them, and confirming the work with signs following. Mark 16:20.  In the world today, there are  many religions which have a  sitanilarity to Christianity; they  believe in one God, they have a  prophet, they have a creation  story, they have a holy book,  etc., but the Word of God is the  only book that can be confirmed  by miracles, to prove that true  Christianity has a living Savior,  Jesus Christ.  At a service of JKathren Kul-  man in Vancouver, I witnessed  many that were healed, but yet  I saw many, especially young  children, hopeless cases, that  left as they had come. These  people were brought to the  church of the living God as their  only hope, only to be disappointed.  Could it be, the true church  itself, is guilty of unbelief and  rebellion, haviing a form of Godliness, but denying 'the power  thereof, and thus we don't see  the multitudes addled to the  church daily, as in Acts 5:14.  It was said of Jesus Christ,  "No man can do these miracles,  that thou doest, except God be  with him." Jffhn 3.2.  Where does the true Chiristian  Church stand today?  ������Rev. Walter S.

Movie News  The 20th Century Fox production Patton, filmed: in Dimension  150 and color by De Luxe and  starring Geoitge C. Scott in the  title role, is showing at Twilight  Theatre until Tuesday of next  week.  The film re-creates those major battles and campaigns of  World War H in wihich General  Patton made his mark as one of  the most resourceful and daring  military leaders in history. It  also depicts the inc^dente in  which Patton's quick temper and  undiplomatic statements brought  reversals to his career and made  him the most controversial1 leader in the war.  An unusual type of full-length  motion picture ;'/. wjh-cb will provide enjoyment to all- memibers  of the family, Sid and IVfarty  Krafft'is production in Technicolor , for Universal, Pufnstuf,  comes next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to the Twilight  Theatre.

The bursary  of the Order of the Eastern Star  is being presented to a student  from Pender Harbour at their  ceremony next Saturday. Since  none of this year's graduates  is entering a School of Nursing  or related training, the Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital is  presenting its award- to Angela  Wallis, a graduate last year who  is attending the University Of  B.C. in the faculty of Rehabilitative Medicine. The award to  the top student in the foods specialty will also not be presented  since the Women's' Institute of  Gibsons who used to give this  award is no longer in existence.  Three of the graduates were  offered a Royal Canadian Legion  Pacific Command bursary, William Dockar, ' Rick Gibb and  Franklin Roberts. Receiving  first class government scholarships were Steven Lee and  Franklin Roberts and a second  class government scholarship  went to Rick Gibb. Steven Lee  also received a Norman MacKenzie scholarship for his high  standing on the scholarship examinations. William Dockar received a Grand Lodge Masonic  scholarship and a UBC Aluinni  scholarship. .7  Mr. Montgomery also explained that since; Franklin Roberts  had been accepted for Officers  Training he will be receiving his  university training through the  armed services and it was not  necessary for him to accept  other financial assistance. Some  of the' awards he would have received were, therefore, re-assigned to other students.  PRIZES  Presented by Mr. D. Richard-  san and Mrs. V.

Most Canadians believe in that  thought. They believe it with all their  hearts. Others believe in it, but won't  lift a finger tp do anything about it.  Not all fingers are born equal. That's  why, if we're going to keep this  country together, some need more  lifting than others.  Perhaps, had Canada not been  blessed with so vast a geography  and an archipelago of people along  its southern edge, our problems might  have been different. But here we are.  A population stretching east and west,  dotted with islands of self-interest.  So what do we do about it?  Build fences around its separate  , regions?  There is a lot we can do. First  thing,, we should start caring and  understanding. Not just about our own  neighborhood, but about alt of  Canada. We've got to help all those  people and parts of Canada that need  it most.

Don't overload the washer.  Permanent press garments have  to move freely in the machine  to get them clean, to avoid excess wrinkling and insure  against harming the finish of the  clothes. It is best therefore not  to fill the washer to its full capacity.  For normal soil use warm to  hot water, regular agitation on  the 10-minute wash  cycle.  For  heavily soiled clothes- a pre-  wash is necessary. Launder for  approximately 3 minutes in  warm water adding a half cup  of Borateem ��� no detergent.  Then follow this with a normal  hot water wash.  Remove permanent press garments from the washer immediately after completion of the final spin cycle.    ~  If you dry permanent press  items in a dryer "remove them  immediately as soon as the action stops, this helps to prevent  wrinkling.

Then the other occasion, when  Timmy stepped through a win-  dowpane which had; until the  moment of impact of the goat's  hooves, served as a hot-frame.  lit was said by observers that  Timmy and Nanny, between  them, did a thoroughly good job  oif nobbling every blade of grass  and shrubbery, not to mention  cleaning out a garden or two on  Paisley Island. -  Now home once more, Walt's  goat is contentedly munching  with great gusto the lush grass  on the Nygren acreage and all  prepared to go into winter., quarters,  a dry,  comfortable free-  EUGENE KASH, noted conductor, performer and teacher, is  to be the guest commentator  on CBC radio's Musicscope,  heard Thursdays.

Incidentally, Timmy was acquired from Winston Robinson who  no doubt became fed up with  Timmy's depredations among  the flowerbeds.

Mr. Ellwood is now instructor  of education at Saanich. Here is  what he told the graduates and  parents as the special graduation speaker;  "This evening we have met to  honor these young people who  are about to launch out into a  new phase   of their   adventure  with life.

' "We,   who  are  teachers  and  parents, appreciate the fact that  there is no way that our schools  can specifically prepare bur students for a tomorrow that is beyond the comprehension of our  ���imaginations. We are told that  all knowledge that was accumulated in this world since the beginning of recorded history and  1956 was doubled between 1956  and 1960 ��� and that this increase  ing body of knowledge continues  to double every 18 months^or so.  Our economist's advise us that  young people entering the work  force today can expect to be retrained at least three times during their lifetimes. How then  .can the school prepare its students for such an unknown tomorrow?  "What are the essentials that  our young people must" have to  survive in- tomorrow's world? I  submit that they are the same  essentials that are required to  survive in today's world. We live  in a rapidly changing society,  which requires much retraining,  so you must have the ability and  the skills required to learn new  skills and new knowledge. You  must be flexible so that you can  accommodate change or face the  prospect of becoming a human  dinosaur. It is essential that you  have confidence in yourself to  cope with the challenges1 of today  and tomorrow.

Yet,  we who have been your teachers  sincerely hope that in some way  we have been able to have made  a worthwhile contribution to  your lives.  "It is difficult to speculate  about the future. Many are concerned for our young people who  are entering a world of increas-.  ing confusion and insecurity  where time honored values are  constantly being assailed. Hbw-  ever I am confident that you will  discover, if you have not already done so, that this world is  full of echoes, but few real voices, and that it is the deep river  that has sulbstance while the  shallow brooks babble.  "You will face many challenges in the years that lie ahead.  We are engaged in a great ui>  banization movement that is  crowding more and more people  into smaller and smaller spaces.  Despite our fantastic technological advances, we still have failed to learn how to get along as  individuals, and as groups.  "I am alarmed at the deper-i  sonalization 'that appears to be  occurring as- a .result of bur :  mass society. I. am depressed  about the general mood- of apathy and indifference that permeates our society. Do 'you really  care what happens to others?  Are you not shocked when you  Itearn that a person can be attacked in broad daylight on the  streets of our great cities while  passersiby ignore pleas for help?  Are you not upset when you hear  that injured people often fail to  get any assistance from, strangers, because they don't want to  get involved? Are you not concerned about the growing trends  in violence, hostility, indifference, intolerance, ignorance? All  these, like a cancer are gnawing  away at our society, and they  must be checked if we are to  survive.        .  "Depersonalization is really  the negative attitude an individual develops toward others. An  attitude of indifference. It is  dangerous because our actions  are born in our attitudes, and  others react to, or are influenced by our actions. John Donne  . once said, 'No man: is an* island,' and isn't that true? We  are all a part of society and  what we do can start a chain reaction for good, or bad.  It is1 populiar these days for  many people to talk about developing better interpersonal relationships and understandings;  but unfortunatelyj there is too  much talk and too little action.  This is a serious problem  which we, who sihare the present and the future, must come to  grips with. It is- a challenge1 that  we cannot afford to ignore. Now  is the time to build a bridge of  (understanding between individuals and groups.  Where de we start? How do  we isolate the factors that contribute to a lack of understanding between people, between gen  era tons, between man and wife,  between mother and daughter,  and father and son. Perhaps it  is time that we recognized the  feet that our expectations for  someone we know just may not  be the same as those he holds  for himself. How, many times  have we been disappointed in  someone, because he failed to  live up to our expectations  of  unaware of the expectations that  others hold for us. Perhaps the  first step in developing better interpersonal relations would be  for each Of us to frankly share  with each other our expectations  for them, so that at least we are  aware of them.  . We all perceive our world differently from the vantage point  of our background, maturity and  experience. Young people tend  to judge the world through idealistic eyes and they are often disappointed1 in us, their models,  when we fail to live up to our  own principles and values. We  are expected to practice what  we preach. We are expected to  be perfect. Our principles arid  our values are not judged on  their own merits, but by how  we practice them. Unfortunately  we are human and no matter  how hard we tryj we will never  diard in the lives of people who  try to live by worthwhile principles and fall short of the mark.  Much of mankind's progress has  been achieved by people, who  continued to strive for a goal beyond their reach.  Our world, both its good and  its bad, didn't get that way overnight. It is' the result of the efforts of millions' of people over  countless centuries. Each, generation in its turn must make its  contribution to mankind. The  world is not perfect, but it is a  lot better in many respects than  it was. What can you do to improve it?  May I suggest that you can  make a significant contribution  by simply building a bridge of  understanding between people  you know. Many people dream  of doing great things, but never  do.

A good time for reflecting upon  the unsolved; riddle of the democratic society.  In the commons, the debate of  Bill C-262, which provides up to  $80 million for industries hit by  the U.S. surtax on imports. The  debate will last the rest of to**  night and probably all tomorrow.  It's a measure of the complexity of modern government-that  for all the sound and fury of this  debate, the main decisions are  going to be made by am. appointed board, not by the parliament.  I have the bill before me as I  write and I find the bones and  the meat all in Section 18.  Section 18 gives to the board  (four civil servants, three appointed from the general public)  the power to decidte how long  assistance shall be -given, what  the subsidized1 industry must do  in terms of retaining employees  in order to qualify, what information the applicant should submit, how the amounts' of assistance shall be calculated, what  considerations shall be taken  into acount in approving or re-  jecting applications and finally  (are you ready?) '^generally respecting any matter or thing necessary to effect the purposes of  this Act."  Thus the House is really debating whether or not a -board  shall be handed $80 million to  help industries hit by foreign  surtaxes. The matter of making  the vital regulations is left to  them-, regulations which may be  a matter of life or death to many  Canadian businesses.  It is easy to say that no such  power of economic life and death  should be left in the hands of  .the bureaucrats and other non-  elected government appointees.  Participatory democracy should  mean that only the people's elected representatives should decide such gravid matters.  In fact, no such detailed expression of the voters' decision  is possible.  There are thousands of Canadian businesses affected by this  legislation. Any notion you or I  might have that each one, from  the Lunenburg Pewter Tuning  NEVENS RADIO & TV  DEALER  FOR  PHILIPS  ZENITH  FLEETWOOD  ADMIRAL  SALES & SERVICE  To all Makes  Phone 886-2280  Fork Company to the Moose Jaw  Boneless H erring Factory,  should have its case debated by  263 MPs is ludicrous1, beyond  comment, beyond belief. By the  autumn of 1972, the last of such  case!, might have passed through  the parMainenitary process. Long  before then, the crisis of the U.S.  surtax would have been forgotten, to be replaced by other crises, doubtlesis crises with even  more convoluted and fascinating  forms.  The bureaucrats and the temporary bureaucrats appointed to  their august company will hopefully have some expert knowledge of the export trade. This  group of seven powerful men  will have no concern for these  next several1 months except'Canada's export trade. They will be  able to devote themselves, whole  heartedly, . singie-mindedly, to  this one subject.  No such condition exists for  most members of parliament.  Speaking for myself, if I may  beTpermitted, my knowledge of  -the export indlustry is general,  not specifi-b. Neither is there the  remotest possibility that I could  devote the next few months or  even weeks to its problem-1. In  the course of this, our first day  of the fall term of the third session of the 28th Parliament of  Canada, my attention has already been distracted by constituency mail, by a meeting of  National Liberal Caucus of  which' I am secretary, by two  phone calls from radio stations',  by one conversation with a minister of the Crown concerning a  constituency problem which I  consider to be of some importance.

In Emergency at Vancouver  General Hospital, scenes like this are  repeated many times throughout  the year.  Doctors and nurses can tell you  about them. So can kids lucky enough  to survive. Kids who thought they  could fly or were invisible to traffic.  Kids who discovered more than they  bargained for when they took a "trip"  on LSD, turned violent on "speed",  or went into a coma from an  overdose of heroin.  Every year- kids die or are  physically or mentally crippled because  they don't know what drugs can do  to them or won't listen when they're  told. If you're a parent, you owe it to  your children to be informed. If you're  a teenager, you owe it to yourself.  Life's too precious to waste  on drugs.

D.LBrottwrs, Q.C, Minister of Educc-tion-Chairman  Government of British Columbia  Council on Drugs, Alcohol, and Tobacco  Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, British Columbia  Please send a free copy of "GET IT  STRAIGHT - some facts about drug abuse.'  Name   Address. Graduates hear sage advice  (Continued from Page 7)  mediately to your efforts as you  expect them to do.  The future it is said belongs  to those who prepare for it. No  generation exists in- a vacuum.  We all belong to the continum of  life. We all stand with one foot  in the past and one foot in the  future, straddling the present,  life can be confusing, so may  I suggest that you determine  your purposes in life, and seel-  out from the past those tried  and true values that you can  cling to during the storms of life  Perhaps I could share with you  a few gems of wisdom taken at  random from our culture and  history which I feel are as relevant today as they have been  throughout the ages. Perhaps,  you may have heard me mention  one or two of these before, but  they are worth repeating. Perhaps they may provide you with  some food for thought.  What we earnestly aspire  to be, that in some sense we  are.  The man who rolls up his-  sleeves seldom loses his  shirt.  Hard work is the easiest  bridge to cross over to success.  You don't have to stay  awake nights to succeed,  just stay awake days.  Not doing more than average is what keeps the av-  eraige man dOwn.  Crooked rivers get that  way by followng the line of  least resistance, so do some  men.  A    man    who    blackens  others,  never whitens  him-   .  self.  A  tongue is like  a  race  '    horse, which goes faster the  less weight it carries.  It is one thing to disagree  . . . but quite another to be  disagreeable. ^  Character is made of what  you standi for, but reputation by what you fall for.  Although you are entering the  most exciting world in history,  a world overflowing with oppo-  tunities and challenges, do not  -expect an easy road. The world  owes no man a living. You will  be faced with your shaire of personal problems and disappointments. The measure of a man  really is how well he acquits  himself in coping with his problems. We might do well to re-  memjber the message in that old  Arab proverb in times of distress: "I cried because I had no  shoes-, then I saw a man with  no feet."  There may be on this stage tonight a young person wiho may  achieve greatness, but for most  of us our contribution to mankind will be less spectacular,  nevertheless, just as important.  Success is not measured in the  kind of job you have, the; price  of your house, or the size of  your car;, it is the kind of person  you are that counts.  Each of us cari make a worth-  while contribution to others and  and meaning by simply toeing  give our own lives real purpose  thoughtful, sincere, considerate,  cheeii-ul, tolerant, and honest in  our dealings with others.  I am very proud to have been  associated with you and I share  with your parents and friends a  sincere and'. continuing interest  in your future. You have but one  life to live, live it well, and  make it worthwhile.  Valedictory!  Here is the Valedictory given  by Mairjorie MacLean at the  close of Saturday's graduation.  Tonight is the culmination of  12 years of hard work. It has become harder in the past few  years to obtain a .graduation certificate. The courses have become more involved and the  competition has increased.  We have put in long hours on  essays, exams, and classroom  instruction. However, there (have  also been times when we laughed together and made good  friends.  School is not just instruction  in the basic subjects. It extends  into instruction of life itself. We  have learned fundamentals that  will serve us well when we are  truly on our own.  Our teachers have played an  important position in our lives.  Not as teachers per se, but as  influental friends; Some of us  would not have made it to our  graduation if these people had  not taken a real and concerned  attitude towards those who were  behind. Some of us owe more  than that.  There have been instances  through the years when various  teachers have helped us in our  personal troubles, on their own  time. Not everyone can be a  good teacher, it takes a special  type of person, and a special  character.  , Probably many of our parents  are breathing sighs of relief because we are finally out of their  hair. But I am sure if you just  think for a moment, you will find  that we're not so bad after all.  We have had our moments,  but there must have been times  when you enjoyed us, and we  you.  We would like to thank you  for the many and varied times  you have worked for and with  us.      '���  Before I close,- I would like  to wish my Mends and fellow  graduates the very best in whatever field they enter. Whether it  is a career or further education  I know that you will do well. Unfortunately, some graduates  were unable to attend this evening's ceremony. To them as  well, do we wish health, happiness and the very best. Thank  you.  \   CROSSWORD PUZZLE  1  ACROSS  S.

If a realtor is involved he will  usually draw a document called  an interim agreement. Actually,  under our law, there is no such  thing. Either there is a contract  or there is not, and it cannot Ibe  interim. Nevertheless, if it is  properly drawn, it will be a valid contract, despite the misleading title.  The interim agreement would  be followed by a deed, or agreement for sale or deed and mortgage that could be registered in  the Land Registry office. The  interim is the contract and the  deed, etc. is the instrument that  puts it into effect. We will in this  article, refer to the interim as  a contract."  What if the agreement for sale,  etc. is inconsistent with the contract ��� or contains additional  clauses?

Usually, however, either the vendor or, the purchased, or both,  desire a contractually binding  iagreement, signed by both parties till the lawyer concerned has  time to do a Land Registry  search and complete all the necessary documentation.  If   the   contract   is   properly  drawn the parties cannot change  their minds before signing the  deed, etc. ��� without incurring  the risk of an expensive lawsuit.  A wise purchaser will, however,  have his lawyer search in the  Land Registry office before signing anything. This will reveal the  state of the title,, the exact surveyed dimensions of the lot, and  the existence of any unanticipated   encumbrances   such   as   a  right-of-way or the right to erect  electricity bearing towers,  the  right in a municipal authority to  . lay sewers, etc., lane allowances, etc. Many surprises, in the  Land Registry office, await the  unwary.  New name for  weatherman  Beginning Sept. 22 all public  weather forecasts issued in Canada will be originated by the Atmospheric Environment Service.  The   familiar   weather   offices  have not disappeared, and neither has their parent organization, the Canadian Meteorological Service, which has been in  existance since 1871. The functions of the QMS have instead  been absorbed into a new and  expanded organization, the Atmospheric Environment Service.  The reason for what at first  glance seems to be only a name  change is the fact that the federal department of the environ-  " ment has recently been created  to join those elements within the  government already involved in  work relating to the environment  and  renewable  resources.  The  Atmospheric  Environment  Service is an integral part of the  new department and will continue to provide weather information and related services but  will,  in  addition, involve itself  further in research into atmospheric  processes  affecting  the  world in which we live.  Although the Canadian Meteorological Service ends its life on  its 100th birthday, its successor,  the Atmospheric Environment  Service begins life with a heritage of 100 years experience.  And it is reassuring to know  that the forecasts issued by the  Atmospheric Environment Service will continue to give Canadians the latest word on weather  prospects for the next days  ahead.

CNIB campaign announced  Mary is an alert 77 year old,  whose husband died two years  ago and whose only son had  been killed in W.W. H. She was  a regular borrower; from.her local library, but it was getting increasingly difficult to read and  her crocheting developed unexpected holes.  Her eye doctor suggested- that  she contact the Canadian National Institute for the Blind.  The next week Mary had been  visited by a CNIB worker and  was taking advantage of two services, the craft instructor, who  would call weekly to help her  with her crocheting and) teach  her a number of other crafts.  The CNIB worker brought  Mary a special talking book machine; and she received recorded  books from the CNIB library.  This service is available to every blind person in Canada. The  worker also suggested having a  volunteer visit Mary each week  to take her shopping and read  her mail. 7  The CNIB worker was able to  notice fo creditors    Seeks nomination  NOTICE TO CREDITORS  In the matter of the estate  of Andrew Edwin Anderson  late of   Gambier  Harbour,  Gambier Island, B.C.
