 PrpTinaial Library>  Victoria, B. C.  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons,XB.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 24  Nuimiber 46, December 1, 1971.  10c.per copy  new  , Eighty or more ratepayers of  Gibsons rural area at a meeting  Friday night in the Gilbsons Rod  and Gun clubroom moved. that,  a petition be circulated -expres-  sdng the desire that the proposv  ���e^ bypass highway be sited further north at or ,near the B.C.  Hydro line as far as possible.'  Volunteers will circulate the  petition and strive to obtain all  the names they can get.  Fred Holland', chairman, opened the meeting by saying he was  sorry no members of Gibsons  council were present. Director  Frank West represented the Regional Board, Jim'Gurney, Gibsons Heights Ratepayers,. and  Dick Derby the West Gibsons  Heights Ratepayers.  As the meeting progressed the  statement by Mayor Wally Peterson that if we holler too loud  we won't get a road at all,  brought cheerful hear, hears  from many of the audience.  Later someone suggested  things should not Ibe made easy  for. tourists at -the expense of  those who live here the year  round, who buy 'more spuds  from merchants 'than do the  tourists. "--'  .Another questioner wanted to  -enow why: the best land was being picked' for roads arguing that  under present circumstances  farm lands should be retained as  long as possible.  When -using Reid ^Road came  up " it ��� was- - mentioned- * that- the -  roads department did not l__e  using existing roads and anyway  Reid road' would be too- costly  as land would halve to be bought  from -residents on both sides of  the road.  Several times it was said that  Route B was mainly in an unoccupied area and that itbe idea  of excessive construction costs  <could no$ be supported. Various  speakers, preferred a new road  or the start of a new through  road rather than a cutoff. One,  suspecting an election coming  on and after the election "we  would hear nothing more about  the bypass."  Another speaker argued it was  not a bypass as it brought traffic towards the vi-Uage.  Cliff Gilker said' the Roberts  Creek Co_____unity Association  . supported the idea of a new  highway. He added that the  roads ���department was generally  building for the future, in order  to change the road1 again.  Dicic Derby of West Gibsons  Heights Ratepayers association,  replying to a questioner who  wanted to know if any information was available a-year ago,  replied that his organization has  letters on file dated1 sometime  this summer that it was not  known where .the road was going to go. Mr. West saidi he approached! Hon. Dan Campbell of- -  facially to see what information  he had on the road and Campbell said he knew no more than s  Mr. West. The Campbell reply v  came three or four months after  he had received Mr. West's letter. Mr. West added that the  Regional District board was kept  in the dank as much' as any one  else. - .   .  The remarks then turned! to  the  idea df bombarding Hon, ..  Mrs. Dawson, and others including the premier with letters of  protest.  Declaring the fight was for  the entire Sunshine Coast, speakers urged that Powell River Re-  giozral District be invited to join  discussions.  The young film-makers, division three, grade six students, of  Gibsons Elementary school, previewed four highly entertaining  and exceptionally well produced  films complete with original  drawings, sub-titles, voice and  color before an appreciative, if  somewhat, critical audience of'  fellow classmates last Friday.  Joan Warn and Mr. M. G. Seymour, their teachers, a bit apprehensive, especially Mrs.  Warn in her opening re_naxks as  she had not seen them in finished form. However as each of the  sequences were flashed on the  screen she had less and less with  which to be concerned.  The entire production from  original story boards, filming  and sound to the final tape-recorded voice over film and on  to projection and presentation  were in the competent'hands of  Dawn Blakeman, a member of  the film team who presented a  comedy hit, Hard to Bear.  Linda Biggeman did a sus-  penseful time-escape piayiet in  a Hallowe'en Journey, and Darcy Guenther reflected1 the tragic  Viet Nam hangup in I Am An  Army Man. Harold Peterson's  Misery of a Garbage Can .gave  a comedy climax to the showing.  One picture was missing, Nancy Chappie's drawing did' not arrive in time to be included in the  preview but will be inserted in  the next presentation.  Airs. Warn and Division three,  Grade sixes were commended on  the success of their _Hm<_naking  efforts and a further presentation of the four film featurettes,  it is expected, will be shown  again.  Regional board Seeking  expanded highway talks  rndty^eoLvj^^  ��� ' Seeking  tackle the highway problem  ���which has vcreated a storm of  ���protest in the rural parts of  Gibsons area the Regional board  at its meeting last week decided  . to invite .the. Powell-River Regional district to take part in  future highway deliberations. At  the local' lvel plans for other  meetings between involved parties were suggested.  After reading a technical planning committee report and studying briefs from* opponents of  the roads department bypass  through Gibsons area, the* boaird  recomimended a meeting between Gibsons council and the  y Regional board to -discuss the  matter plus a discussion between  the board and highways department.  The report from the board's  planning committee reads as  follows:  "The committee considered  the recommendations of the tech  nical planning committee as well  as briefs and correspondence  from the Howe Sound Farmers'  Insititutt, West Gibsons Ratepayers Association and the Gibsons Heights Ratepayers Association.  "The committee recommended  a meeting be arranged between  Driftwood play  Friday, Saturday  Driftwood Players have supplied local playgoers a fine evening's entertainment with their  production The Waltz of the Toreadors last weekend., This play  will be repeated again Friday  and Saturday in Gilbsons United  Church hall.  * Directed by Colleen Johnson  who must take credit for choos-  r" ng such a crowd pleasing production, the real strength of the  play lies in the skill of its experienced performers, especially  John Burnside as the general,  Colleen Johnson as his wife,  Nest Lewis as his mistress and  Pat Baker as the secretary.  A more complete review of  this play will be"''carried in next  week's issue -written by George  Matthews.  Regional District to discuss tht*  matter of highway location as  well as zoning and land' use near  the municipal boundary.  "The committee/ considered  the letter from the department  of highways evaluating the various route choices (in; the Coast  News, page one, Nov. 19 issue).  It was noted that some of the  figures were incomplete and that  the original proposal was.. 15  percent longer than the alternatives." ,  "Mayor Ptterson, (Jibsons director on the board in discussion  said he was ..unable' to attend the  meeting/of the pilanncng, commit-  to  For protection and preservation of watersheds, the Regional  board is seeiking supplementary  Letters Patent giving it jurisdiction over suchwatersheds as are:  in the entire district including  I'he villages of Gibsons and Sechelt as1 participating member  municipalities; ���..'.;���  /'*T-ie.^;';.!d'ra_t..ir��oiu_ioni'. which  ���'c^e;;':;t^ofe.'.7th^'';...;.bda-rd at its  meeting -last week stated the annual cost of .this function shall  nofexceed l/20ith of one mill on  net taxable values of', land and  improvements for general purposes for the villages and for  school purposes in the electoral  areas.  The board, faced with multi-  use of. forest", lake and mountain  areas seeks to protect such watersheds and prefers one jurisdiction to control activities of  both, governmental and private  interests.  Mayor Peterson of GfJbsons  maintained that Gibsons had its  own watershed which protected  the village. He wanted to know  how much duplication of authority do we need. Director Lome  Wolverton replied that the board  was trying to protect watersheds  for . everybody. Director CMff  Thorold saidthat some measure  of central control was necessarv.  The measure was passed to the  water committee for consideration.  tee* -^hi-ch ���- cs&Be**i&&i!i#he*~&ame  - night Gibsons had its statutory  meeting. Aid. Gerry Dixon al-  ; ed for him.  Mayor Peterson said that  *- at no time has Gibsons council  > tried to tell the department of  highways where to locate the  proposed highway. It did ask for'  the proposed location so that it  could formulate plans around it  ^ and he said council felt that it  received full co-operationi from  that department.  His comment continued with  the explanation that the then regional planner did consider four  routes and finally recommended  the proposed route because of  grade, cost, travel' time and  benefit to the village. This information has. been in the Vancouver department Of highways  office for over a year and has  been available to all concerned'  parties. Mayor Peterson' wanted  to know why had everyone waited this long to seek the information?  Continuing he said that about  two months ago Gibsons planner  spent some two hours going over  the overall plan with the Regional planner and the plan was received very favorably.  Considering all these facts, he  continued, the only conclusion  he could come to at this stage  is that if all -this imnecessairy  snowballing continues the net  result could foe to have the highway remain as existing, past our  schools andl around the sharp  curves; With the traffic increase  at its present rate it will only  be a matter of time until some  child gets killed or crippled. "It  may be mine or it may be yours-  _s this what you are fighting  for?"  NUTS FOR CHRISTMAS  Scouts will have a one day  nut drive covering Gibsons, Roberts Creek, Wilson Creek and Seohelt on a door to door basis  with boys from those areas taking part. This drive will take  place Saturday starting at 10  a.m.  OPPOSE MORAN DAM  Endorsaition of New Westminster council's opposition to the  Moran dam was registered at  (the  November meeting  of  the  Regional District board.  An explanation  Two funerals affecting employees in a two week period have  created considerable difficulties in the publication of the  Coast News last'week and this  week. As, a ..result, both issues  were squeezed through as best  as was possible. So omissions  and curtailments of stories must  be accepted under these circumstances.  caiig  tmmmxmmmm  Peterson  Goddard  star bout  Two Regional board seats and  the mayor?s chair in Gibsons  will! supply the only votes in this  year's, municipal elections and  school board elections.

The collection service was? being arranged by the Regional board.  As a result of arrangements  made through Hot. Isabel Dawson Mayor Bill Swain and Alderman Ben Lang of Sechelt were in  Victoria this past week meeting  Hon. Ray Williston, minister of  lands, forests and water resources and with Hon; Isabel P.  - Dawson.  At the meeting with: the minister it was agreed that Lots 1472,  1616 and 1,2, t and 10 of Lot 1471  would be transferred to the Village of Sechelt for a nominal fee  of approximately $50 with the  stipulation that the land so acquired must be developed for  public use.  The minister has requested  that Sechelt village council show  some ind-cation of plans for the  development of these lots as  soon as possible.  Should all or part of these lots  be utilized for any other reason  than for the puiblic enjoyment  they must be returned to the  Crown for re-assessment arid  subsequent re-evaluation.  Demolition of the Sechelt  wharf is to commence about  November 28 or 29. A new company has been formed to develop  Wharf facilities. Riv-Tow will be  active in this work.  Both Mayor ��wain and Ben  Lang have spent a considerable  amount of time on this very  worth-while project and both  these people have in no small  ^ measure, as--a result, of ;their  Victoria meetings, been instrumental in the implementation  of both these items.  Public hall  support sought  Aid. Ken Crosby has an idea  he seeks to place before the  public and it is _h< the form of a  letter to the residents of Gibsons  and area concerning the lack of  a pulblic hail. Here is what he  '" "has ."to 'say:',.."'.:  .'���Last" week we were told by  the school board, no more liquor  in school halls, as the insurance  does hot cover it. So once again  we are back to where we started without a hall for dances,  parties, etc. .  ��� "Well,   Gibsonites,   what are  you going to do about it?  "I say that now is the time  to put a hall on Brothers Memorial Park, and we can do it,  if the size is kept to a minimum  to start, at about 80' x 100% costing around $80,000, and the important factor is to be able to  maintain this by all clubs and  organizations in the district, heat  it quickly, and,do our own cleanup, so there is ho janitor involved. .. ' ������:���:���������.. ���������;     .;-���������>.:. [     x  "Now where do we get the  money? Well you have all heard  how the federal government is  giving it away in hand_u__> to  municipal bodies, to help create  employment, so let's get some  for Gibsons, the time has never  been riper, and one of the advantages of these loans is that  75% of the labor on the project  is retired, which cuts the cost  about 25% and up, on a cement  block building.  "Let's hear from you."  CLINIC RESULTS EXPECTED  Discussing the meeting- with  Health Minister Ralph Loffmark  with the Pender Harbour Rate-,  payers Association over a proposed emergency medical clinic  Chairman J. H.

Ratepayers meeting at the Rod and Gun club to oppose the  proposed bypass route of the highways department earner'up with  a sound idea in discussing the possibility of scrappling the proposed bypass and working towards a new through highway in vicinity  of the power line.      *       "       "  The populace at'this meetihg could see no need for running  a highway through scarce farm lands when there was much unoccupied; Cro\Wi land'in viciiiity of the Hydro line. The desire to look  ahead is oiie which should be considered because the area known  as the Gibsons plateau is top-rank for residential purposes.  No doubt there will be plenty of it-can'/twbe-dbne from roads  department officials but when one looks at the cost Of what is being done to the,Upper Levels highway in West Vancouver one can  only wonder whether there are multiple policies available for the  roads department to use if as and when it sees fit:  The power line area is liable t0 have populate on both sides  /before too many years go by and that plateau area will be crowds  ing towards the north. This is no stretch of imagination because  (pressures on the area surroundikng Vancouver is increasing resulting in such parts of the country as the Sunshine Coaslfc falling into  Mne for new settlers.  The ratepayer meeting was definite about* where the road should  not be. Just as definite as the Regional board directors who at  thdr meeting on the previous Thursday advocated because the highway was in the wrong place that a new highway should be started  and that the Powell River Regional District be invited to take part"  in further discussion.  Thoughts on Christmas  Christines isn't what i_ used to be ��� yule logs, electric lights  on the tree, holly, mistletoe, carols, Santa Cliaus and all that sort  of seasonal stuff. Joy, innocence, a comfortable meal.  Take Christmas tree lights for instance. They're a No-no! on  all artificial trees. The fire department Would rather you didn't  use them at all. As for the trees, keep them out of the house if  possible ��� they're a big enough hazard in the woods.  The yule log used to be so comlfy and cheery but (today it only  adds to the pollution problem. As for the unguided mistletoe, it  could have serious impliclions for the population explosion. The  -lowing bowl is definitely out. If you drink, don't drive. Better still  if you drive ��� don't drive.  That leaves us with the Christmas dinner. Wait! Drop that  fork! Don't take a chance: With all those additives, cyclamates,  calories and mercury the good olid Christmas dinner becomes a  meal of death. Besides somebody somewhere has likely got a cranberry boycott on the go. Well, you wouldn't foe able to wash the ~  dishes because detergent is a dirty word.  Of course, you can always go to church. On second thought  better check with your psychiatrist. See what he can do a|bout  your guilt complex when you know you're not going to be around  again until Easter. (A United Church Unchurched Editorial).  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  First public notice of an extension of Sechelt's municipal  boundaries taking in West Sechelt was published.

A new 50 mile power line will  be constroKcted by B.C. Hydro  connecting the Cheekye station  with_fche Sunshine Coast system.  10 YEARS AGO  Elphinstone school has re-form  ed its Honor Society to give recognition to good standards' set  by pupils.  Once again the Coast News  editorially advocates the formation of a Community Centre for  general purposes in the village.  Merchants are complaining  over the selection of Winn Road  as the location of a new Gibsons  post office.  15 YEARS AGO  Removal of Gibsons fire can  phone off a party line is asked  by Chief Fred Feeney.  Three hundred persons attended the official opening of Sechelt's new municipal hall.

Pupils are now busy learning  among other things to express  themselves clearly and with imagination. Here are several examples from the files at Gibsons  Elementary written during the  last term before summer vacation.  ME, A SCHOOL BUS  (By P. Boothroyd)  I am a school bus. I am; a  beautiful color of yellow and  black. I take the children to and  from school every day of the  week. Sometimes the children  are very good and sit still but  there are other days when the  children shout and stamp their  feet on my floor and this makes  me very sad and; gives me a  pain in my floor,.poor me.  One day we had just let Bill  off at his home and we were  ready to start our journey, home  when   a mother  came  rushing  out   of  her   house   crying.   My  driver got out of his seat and  asked her what was wrong. Well -  her   little   boy   had   swallowed  some pills and she had to get  him to the hospital but she did  not have  a  car.  So my driver  put the little boy ion one of my  seats and  off we went at full ..  speed. Oh1! We went so fast that  some times I thought my wheels  could come right off the road.  As we came around the corner  there were some deer standing  in the middle of the road. My  driver  sounded my horn three  times before they ran into the  bushes. For a moment I thought  that we would run right into  them, my! I was scared.  We hadn't far to go when it  started to rain very hard, and  one of my wipers would hot  work and my driver could hardly see. Then as we came around  a corner here was a wide river  with a small bridlge, but as I  said, my driver couldn't see and  we were heading for the river.  Oh! ray, I wish I could. shout  out. Then just in time my driver saw the bridge and we went  across. *  .  Soon we were at the hospital  and they took the little boy inside and we waited for a long  time before the doctor caine  out and said that the little boy  would be alright. So we went  home very-pleased that we had  helped someone and very, very  tired.  THE FOX  (By Pat Hogan)  I'm Wiley, the sly fox.

But every time I try to  put my plans into action something always happens to me.

'  MY FIRST RIDE  IN A HELICOPTER  (By an unnamed shy pupil)  To start with when the helicopter takes off it's like rising in a  very fast elevator, only a lot  noisier. After the helicopter was  airborne, we then flew sideways.  I felt like I was -leaining against  a wail and it gave way. The pilot explained to me that this was  , the way he turned the helicopter. Flying along straight was  every bit as thrilling.  When Hooking out the side one  gets a funny feeling because you  see no wings. The view from a  helicopter is terrific. We then  flew through a canyon. This was  very different, for we ran into  ' a .bunch of down- drafts. Down  drafts are currents of wind that  blow down, so you can see what  I mean. The helicopter dropped  when we hit these, it also swayed sideways. This was very  thrilling but also very dangerous. We could easily hit the  walls of the canyon and crash.

The main part of the  statement follows: , -���  The main point at issue is that  in passing zoning and subdivision bylaws without proper consultation and prior approyall off  the resource, departments and in  particuiliar the lands branch, the  Regional Districts are in; fact  over-iiding statutory authority  which they have no right to ;do.  Our concern is with the es-tab-  ' lishment of restrictive zoning  and subdivision bylaws over vast  areas of unorganized and in  most cases unsettled parts of .the  province involving, for the most  ipart, Crown lands' only.  It must be apparent' that the  lands (branch whilch is charged  with, carrying out government  policy cannot accept or be bound  by many of the restrictive zoning and subdivision bylaws that  are now being advanced by Regional Districts, part_teula__y  where such by-laws are applicable to Crown lands not in the  immediate environs of an urbanized area.  We are in agreement with the  need for appropriate zoning with  subdivision bylaws which, would  be applicable to Crown; lands in  the immediate vicinity of estab  lished communities and we feel  sure we will have no difficulty  in reaching an understanding in  such areas.  Landis branch policies must be  applied    _m_formly   throughout  the province and hence we cannot  accommodate  28  different  policies  simply  because  there  are 28 Regional Districts all with  different sets of standards and  ideas.. You will appreciate that  land applications by statute must  be filed with the land comaniis--  sioner in whose area the Crown  lands are situated. Since Regional District, boundaries and land  recording boundaries are not coincident, the land commissioner  could be faced with interpreting  to the public three or more Regional District policies. He would  no doubt be rejecting an application in one area because of  the zoning restrictions while accepting   another one  in   close  PTOxdmiity because the neighboring   Regional  District  had   no  such restriction.  We are therefore of the opin- ,  ion that as a matter of policy all  Regional Districts should accept  the present provincial subdivision regulations which were  hammered out by an inter-disciplinary committee chaired1 by  the department of municipal affairs. Adoption of these bylaws  with perhaps very minor amendments would establish a uniform  approach to subdivision over  most of the province.

The report was produced by  the council's home and school  comimittee following a survey on  bicycle accidents in B.C. earlier  in the year.  Recommendations include:  Cyclists riding without lights  at night be subject to fines ranging up to $25. AM* bicycles sold  in the province after January 1,  1973, be equipped with built-in  headlamps, approved reflectors,  and highly reflective material  on front forks and rear fenders.  Drivers' licences be required for  bike riders, and all bicycles be  si-bjept to an annual inspection  of mechanical condition.  Municipalities would be re-  ihicfe traffic.  quested to develop ways of separating bicycles and motor ve-  Bicycle drivers should be expected to make uniform signals  when turning and would be prevented from making U-turns,  ���the report ���recommends. The re-,  port says that some 90 percent  of cyclists ride attnight at least  occasionally, but only 20 percent  have their cycles equipped with  lights.  Council authorities commented  that the bicycle accident survey  showed that many of the school  age cyclists involved in mishaps  were riding on the left side of  the road or commit other errors  that in fact are against the law.  Provincial job  program outlined  Local job registries are being  established i n communities  throughout the province to assist in matching job seekers with  available work under the provincial government's Job Opportunities Program, Municipal Affairs Minister Dan Campbell has  announced.  Job seekers and employers in  this area will be 'able to call for  information on both jobs available under the program and the  eligible people looking for work.  Phone numbers for this; area are  299-9131 or 681-7395: in Vancouver..:  Under the Job Opportunities  Program, persons 'who have  been on social assistance for  three morihs and residents of  British Columbia for a year can  be hired in new jobs lasting  eight weeks or longer and the  government will reimburse employers 50 percent of the wages  or salaries and fringe benefits.  Eligible job seekers who apply  to the government will be issued  Certificates of Opportunity which  they can show to potential employers as proof of their eligibility under the program.  The job registries will be.in  operation in most centres by  Nov. 18. Mr. Campbell stressed  that the registries are not employment agencies. There will  be no recommending of people  for particular jdbs.  Mr. Campbell said the job  registries and central numbers  are being set up in local areas  to simplify procedures. The registries will- be coordinating  bodies, working closely with various departments of the provincial government, plus .the federal departments of Canada Manpower and Indian Affairs.

PIERRE, MP  COAST-CHILCOTIN  UNITED NATIONS* New York���  For lo, more than three years,  I have contrived to provide one  newspaper column per week  with interruptions only at CTirist-  mas, Easter and summer recesses. During a month at the United Nations.- interrupted by a  three day visit to Sechelt and  Powell River, I seemi to have  fallen into sin, error and sloth  arid for two weeks the ten Coast  Clulcotin newspapers which regularly print the column have had  to leave the space blank for  autographs.  The lack of complaint has been  overwhelming, but let us not  dwell upon that. Print is one of  the best links: between an MP  and his home country and such  links should not be broken carelessly.  I can only say there have been  distractions here, namely adjusting to the United Nations. The  UN has just* enough _a_ni_ar_ty to  a Parliament to be deceptive. In  fact, it is quite different.   .  The similarities are- easily  seen. As in Parliament, where  it is said that much of the work  is done behind the curtains, so  at the UN many decisions are  made in the corridors rather  than in formal sessions.  As in Parliament, the major  proportion of the work is- done  in committee. And! the plenary  sessions of the General Assembly resemble the House of C___V  monsuin that, often if not regularly, -the speeches made there  are mere matters of form, a confirmation of work already done  in committee or in private negotiations. ���������'" V  Also,   as   in   Parliament,   no ;  matter   how   heated   argument  may become in public sessions  there is a high level of courtesy:  and     friendliness     maintained",  among all parties in private. Bu.  the differences between the two  institutions' are more striking.  Parliaments   contain   governments, with power to initiate and,  usually, the voting strength :td;  make their decisions law.  There is no UN government.  There is little likelihood that  there will be one for the foreseeable future. The Security Council has some of the attributes of  a* cabinet, but since a single negative vote can paralyze it. Thus'  on matters most requiring decision, disputes between great  powers, the Security Council can  seldom if ever make a dacisiori.

There is today even less voting than/ formerly. The new magic word is consensus. Much of  the effort of the committees is a  tireless search for endless proliferation of compromises among  opposing points of view.

First the  various noises of foot traffic are  muffled, and if laying space is  occupied below the traffic area,  carpet is considered an essen-  ial.

Builders using  carpet because of its beauty and  practical performance underfoot, have also been able to eliminate other types of sound-insulating materials such as perforated ceiling tiles1, etc.  We have supplied and _nsia_-  led carpet in theatres, churches,  auditoriums, as well as in homes  Some of these installations include partial wall areas.

Thus the UN, with its 131 member states, is only to some extent a Parliament of Man, nor  does it remotely resemble a  world government. But except  for any who prefer fighting to  talking, it is the best operation  that the nations' of today could  devise. Its agencies do immense  humanitarian and development  work in the poorer regions of the  world.  For  all   that   it   began  with  mere talk, the UN has devised  treaties on partial disarmament,  peaceful uses of outer space and  other forms of international  agreements. It does not have the  prower to enforce these agreements. They come into force  only as individual nations sign  tihem. The important thing is  that nations do sign' and slowly  that invisible force called world  public opinion imposes restraints  upon even the mightiest of nations.

The move promoted by. J. G.  Warn of Sechelt Agencies Limited was placed before both muni-  cipai bodies last week and both-  showed interest.  To obtain government advice  on the matter, Mr. Warn has  written R. H. Ahrems of the provincial department of recreation'  and conservation for procedure  to get the government help in reserving this land. The letter in  part said:  "This property is approximately three acres of upland with  over 400 feet of shoreline between Langdale and Gibsons. It  constitutes the only beach in the  area comparatively uneracumber- .  ed with residences.  "There is not, at present, a  beach close to Gibsons, short of  Roberts Creek picnic grounds,  where people going to the beach  can park a car ��� except on the  roadside or where they "can, in  any numbers have a picnic other  than on the beach itself.  The site has room for parking,  picnicking and safe swimming  from a good beach. The beach  ds on a promontory exposed to  the sun for the full extent of  the day. _-  "I have been closely involved  with this property, since albout  five years ago when I instigated  and was a party to a lease to  prevent a very poor plan of subdivision being executed.  "Landwest Development Ltd.  subsequently bought the property and honored my interest with  a block of shares. At this point  I could see my efforts being to  Utile purpose since some form of  subdivision then seemed inevitable. However, the company has  now put the property back on  the market for $105,000. I am a  real estate salesman and I have  asked1 for and obtained a commitment of a listing for at least  two months to promote the use  of this land for park purposes.

Playing Thursday at Argyle in  North Vancouver, the Cougars  fell to their first defeat of the  season by the score of 62 to 47.  The inability to promote a constant attack and frequent lapses  on defence, cost Elphinstone ''  their first defeat in only two  starts.  At Pender Harbour, building a  small' lead in the early minutes  Elphinstone took advantage of a  dejected Pender team and ran  up an impressive score of 63  points  to Pender Harbour's 36-.  The Cougars' top scorers were  Bill Sneddon with 16 and Art  Dew with 10 points. The game,  resembling a rugby match in  the last few minutes, had a total  of 27 personal and three technical fouls. j  Cougars, 2 wins and 1 loss,  will play their next-games at a  (tournament in Pemberton, Saturday, - December 4.

Yuccas are striking plants  One of the most striking plants  of the lily fatai-l^and!one fie-'  quehtly used in the modern land- 5  scaping is the yucca, often plant-;  ed in--association with  shrubs.  There are two. very hardy yuccas -that will grow in most of  Canada,    the   Adam's   Needle,  (Yucca   filamentosa)   and   the  Spanish Bayonet (Yucca glauca)  a native species.  The Adam's Needle is very  much hardier than usually supposed, projbably because of its  cactus-like appearance that suggests hot, arid desert regions.  The rosette of stiff leaves is reason enough for its being called  Adam's Needle or sometimes the  Bayonet plant/The loose fibrous  plants with similar habit, yuccas  make a fine choice for planting  by themselves, where accent is  desired ���, for example, on either side of a drive entrance,  in a small group at the turning  of a sunny path, against a planting of evergreens, or even in  several spots in the center, section of a perennial border.  They may also ibe planted near  terraces that are above ground  level   or  terraces   that  do  not  have   much  traffic   where   the  spiny-tipped leaves would not be  a constant hazard; or as a group  against a blank wall. They also  seem to thrive in smoky townsi  so:inay be able to withstand the:  polluted atmosphere of industrial  cities better than most plants.  .   The cultivation^ of yuccas  isi  . quite   simple.   Choose   a   well ���;'  drained location in full sun;  if  the  soil is heavy  add  strawy  manure or peat moss and dig  good   deep   holes   for   planting  with added drainage if needed.;  In areas where they grow na-;  .strands of some species, attached1 to the leaf .edges,  are perhaps a reminder that a number  of plants in the lily family furnish fibres of economic impor- .  tance. The leaves remain  dull  green in.winter and attract attention   when   they   are   partly  buried with snow.  '  Flowers   of   this   yucca   are  borne on tall racemes  usually  about three  to four feet high.  They'are showiest in July after  the spectacle of spring-flowering  shrubs, a time when flowers are  extremely' welcome.  The Spanish Bayonet occurs in  a few wild areas on the prairies  in Manitoba, thus it is ruggedly  hardy. It differs from' the Adam's Needle by haying narrower leaves and a short, thick stem  The silvery leaves have fewer  threads arid are bordered by a  thin white margin. The greenish-  white iflowers are , borne on  stems three to five feet high.  Because of their stiff habit and  because there are few hardy  turaly lush and healthy, the location is usually a gentle slope  with stony or well drained soil  in the sun. They suffer more,  than most plants from damp and  wet conditions in fall.or winter.  In spring, cut away the dead  leaves and in the fall, when the  flower buds have faded and the  stems have turned brown, cut  them out.  If you wish to increase the  plant, search around the base of  the old stem for rhizomes; cut  these off and pot them up in  spring in sandy soil. The dwarf  species are best propagated by.  division in April or May. If the  top of the plants have broken  off, you can often root them like  cuttings by inserting them in a  pot of sand and placing them in  a sunny window.  Three less hardy sipecies, but  equally as beautiful if not more  so, are the Spanish Dagger  (Yucca gloriosa), Mound Lily,  (Yucca recurvifolia), arid the  Weakleaf yucca (Yucca flac-  cida).  The Spanish Dagger has long,  stiff, sword-like leaves, grows  from six to nine feet high and  bears large," greenisih-white inflorescences of bell-shaped --owners in August; the Weakleaf yucca is a low growing tufted plant  with a leaves about a foot to 18  inches long. Its creamy white  flowers are borne on stems three  to five feet hgh in July or August. The Mound Lily has very  graceful dark green narrow and  .tapering leaves ; two feet long  -Hid greenish-white . inflorescences about three feet high borne in  August or Sapteinber.

This  year the unexpected arrival of  a Canada goose, along with the  mallards came as a bit of surprise.  Buffeted by the winds and rain  the exhausted goose plfumjped'  down in the centre of their yard.  Carol first became aware of its  presence, just before dark by  the persisibe-nt toarkiaig of their  dog, Jeff. When they went out  to investigate, they found the  dbg gently, nuzzling the storm--  (battered goose. Gathering it up,  they took the stranger- into the  house. Before the warmth of the  fire and after a goodsized bowl  of grain, wheat genm and a judicious nip of good Scotch whisky, the goose quickly recovered  and proceeded to ( make itself  right at home, dozing in front  of the stove alongsidevof Jeff, as,  pally as you please.  In the early morining, just  about the time the dawn flights1  whirr over Gibsons harbor in  grand and orderly array, the  Brakstads took their now fully  recovered visitor outside and  placed it on the projection of the  shed roof for easy takeoff. Here  it perched for several minutes,  then with a joyous flapping of  wings and a loud honking thanks  for everything folks, the Canada  goose rose from the roof and  disappeared in the low hanging  morning mist.  Caime sundown and the broad-  winged visitor was back, announcing its return with a pre--  emptory tapping on the door  with his bill, and, of course, its  pan of food was not long in coming, a nonnmetal container, so as  not to frighten the freeloader  when its bill came in contact  with the rim of the dish. This  procedure has been taking place  at the Brakstads for several  weeks now, come evening time,  no matter how rough the weather, this obviously housebrokeh  Canada goose calls in on Carol  and her husband Lars, to remain  the night with them and their  dog, taking off before sun-tap  each morning.  Quite apparently it ha�� been .,  somebody's pet,% but the Brakstads' heart and hospitality are  amply generous enough to take^  on all comers among their feathered friends from the sky, who  have no hesitation in taking full  advantage of the food and shelter so generously provided toy  the isartctuairy at ihe house by  the Bay.

COAST NEWS WANT ADS  DEADLINE, TUESDAY NOON  Phone 886-2622  Lots of snow says Dominic  Lots of show is forecast for  this winter according to; an interview with Dominic Ch__r_ie in  the Pender Haiibouir publication.  Peninsula Voice, ^toward White,  editor.  Here is what the Voice published in its; latest issue:������������:���'.  Dominic Charlie, an 84-year-  old Squamish Indian rioted for  his accurate long range weather  forecasts said we're going to  have ten feet of snow. Mr. Charlie was in Sechelt for the opening of the new administration  hall. -  Dominic has been giving the  weather caTeM study a'l_ his life  and in the last ten. years., visi_s  to his home in North Vancouver  have become a seasonal ritual  for Vancouver newspapers:  It started out as something of  a joke, but it's not that way any  more. Mr. Charlie's' long range  forecasts have fbeeni accurate  about 70% of the time, compared  to 40% for the National Weather  bureau and his advice is: now being sought by some gather sur-,  prising people.  The night before his visit to  Sechelt an official from the Vancouver Airport had called, wanting to know 'how long the Squamish blows.' The; Squamish is a  notorious gale which rises pre-  iodically in Howe Sound. And he  had to hurry home aifter the  ceremony to keep ah. appointment with six meteorologists  from the .Weather Bureau itself,  who, he said, "just wanted to  talk to me." '  Mr. Charlie was laughing  when he set the snowfall estimate at ten feet, but he was ser  ious about the area getting lots  and lots of snow, and warned all  present to cut lots of wood.

"  Sr/e  Point of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  We have received further questions on the notarization of doCr  uments.  An affidavit or statutory declaration is a document, the contents of which, the deponent (the  person signing and swearing)  swears to ibe the truth. It must  toe sworn before a notary public  or commissioner for taking  oaths.  All lawyers are automatically  notaries public. The notary public will ask the following ques*-*  tions: "This is your signature  . ��� you have read and understood  this document, and do you swear  if to be true, so help you Godl?"  If the deponent answers yes, the  official will affix his signature"  and often, as .well, a rubber  stamp of his signature for identification. If the document is to  be used outside the province, the  offociai will affix Ms seal which  is an embossed representation  of his name and official title.  Any corretetions, changes pr interlineations require initialling  by the notary. There are special  procedures for blind persons', illiterate persons and persons not  conversant in,, the English, language. Any person objecting on  religious  grounds to this  oath,  ROOFING & FLOORING  CALL STAN HILSTAD  about your roofing or flooring  needs  Gower Pt. Rd.

How much does this cost? The  usual fee is $1 if the document  is completed. It frequently occurs that all the blanks in the  document have not been filled in  by the deponent. If the notary  has to check and complete the  document he may charge $2 or  $3. Some uncompleted documents  from other provinces or countries may be a little complicated to complete and some contain  more than one affidavit, so the  cost may run up to $5.  Some documents require a  seal: opposite the names of the  person(s) signing. The modern  form of the seal is a small red  wafer stuck to the document before signing, although it could  be the traditional iblob of melted  wax. This is not just a formality  and could mean that under the  document, the person must abide  by the terms of it, but himself  receives no benefits.  Some documents are not being sworn to, that ds*f. the person sighing is not swearing that  anything is a fact, the document  requires only a notarial certifi-.  cafe. This merely authenticates  the authorship of the person  signing and would be typed on  the document and read, for example, "This 9th day of January, 1971, one who represented  himself to me to be John Doe,  appeared before me and identified himself to me to be one and  the same person as the John  Doe mentioned herein ��� Richard  Roe, a notary public in and for  the province of "  Im all cases the completion of  such documents is not a mere  formality and any error or misstatement could have most serious effects at law.
