From this information council  by previous arrangement stated  it would hold a village referen-  diiiim on. the Recreation Centre  on the same date.  It. was previously understood^  that all areas would vote on the  same date  to avoid ico_ip__ca'-  tions arising from votes held! on  other dates.   <<  Aid. Ted' Hume who attended  the Roberts Creek meeting said  albout 100 persons attended.  They learned, he said, that the  cost if it passed the referendum  would be about three mills or  $250,000 for Squamish dock  The federal government will  contribute up to $250,000 toward  construction of a second Squamish' Terminals, dock, it was announced by Works Minister Ar-  thur.Laing and Paul St. Pierre,  (M:P.  Coast Chiicotin).  St. Pierre congratulated the  dock company for its initiative  iri taking a second considerable  step toward development of the  Port of Squamish.  ..The harbor, he said, is a natural outlet' for Pacific Great  Eastern sh5|#me_its from Pemberton and Lillooet areas, the  Cariboo region and parts oif  northern British Columbia.  The amount is the* estimated  50 percent share of the costs of  dredging 700,000 cubic yards of  material for approaches and a  second berth. The federal government contributed approximately $200,000 toward construction of the first dock two years  ago.      .'-'���'":���.    ' '";"'������'.���'''  Squamish Terminals,/incorporated in 1971 by Cattertmole Timber Limited and Star Bulk Shipping Company (Canada) Limited  will ship lumber, woodpuip and  wooddhips from Squamish. Two  berths were required to speed  loadings and to separate the  woodfehip operation from the  pulp and lumber faei-iti'esy Odd  Gronnerud, president of Squamish "Tei-nirials, said the two  berths   should  be  adequate  to  leaves the Langdale canyon. No  objection can be raised against  this portion of the proposal as-~  the routing is more or less die- ,  tated by the topography of'the '  land.  The committee has also re- <  viewed the public statements:-  made in Gibsons council and the t  ���':. chamiber   of  co-nimerce   by rthe';  : mayor and some aldermen. We  had also .before us a letter from  -  the minister of highways'to the _.  West Gibsons Heights Ralepay-"  ers Assodiation  and statements  made in the technical advisory  committee of the Regional District.  We' are disturbed that a number of these statements are contradictory and the stories as  told (by the various sources can-  net' be reconciled with each  other. This adds greatly to the  already grave concern of many  taxpayers about the whole project.  Tha presently proposed routing of Gibsons Bypass is in the  opinion of an overwhelming  majority of taxpayers highly undesirable. Our comimittee fully  concurs with this view for the  following reasons: -  1. The proposed .routing places the bypass in a location which'  would    create   an   undesirable  carving up of the area; ,  2. It' will  create great,  but  unnecessary, hazards for a large.,  number of .residents', who will  have to cross a- high speed high*- ,  way in the pursuit of their normal daily activities.  ������INSTALLED Monday night at  Cedars Inn-were'the officers for  1972'.of Gibsons and District  Chamber of Comim-erce.

No word has as yet been received from the urgent appeal  made to the Wild Life branch in  Victoria, for a grant or siupply  of food. Meantime the local  . flock is being hafrassed and  y stoned by sadistically minded  youngsters and several dead  ducks have been seen on the  beach.  According to the Brakstads, if  Gibsons is to benefit from the  presence of wild life and should  (he shoreline boulevard ever be  realized, then some control  should be exercised right now,  to 'prevent arid penalize the cruel  molesting of ducks in the bay.  Consideration is being given to  forming a vigilance committee  to deal with violators and signs  to be erected along the shore  line to warn and zone off the  area to stick and rock slingers.  Mothers March  on February 1  Mothers are needed to take  part "in the annual Kinsmen Mothers' March, scheduled here  the* night,, of Tuesday, Feb. 1.

A TALL FIR  The tallest Douglas Fir officially recorded in British Columbia, reports the B.C. Forest Service, was 305 feet high. It was  located near WocS Lake on Vancouver Island.  Urging supporters of the Sea  Cavalcade to attend the first  1972 preparation meeting for  next August's celebration, Gibsons and District Chamber of  Commerce Monday night stressed the importance of a continuation of the event.

It was decided that flowers  would be sent him with the hope  he would soon be up and around.  Ewart McMynn  installed the  new officers. The new president,  Make    Blaney,    outlined    what  ccuild be the 1972 objectives of  the   chamber.   First,   he   said,  memibers    were    needed.    The  chamber must have a work:ng  meimfbership as there are plenty   of  functions   in   which   the  chamiber could be involved such  as a community hall, parks, tour  ism and other events such as the  Sea Calval-ade.'  After ihaiving outlined chamber priorities Mr. Blaney asked  the members to offer their priorities and taking the membership -table by table he heard  that "a meestuig starting, at 8 p.m.  serving coffee and dessert might  be better than dinner meetings  a^0^ioer jrtate*.

President Morgan Thompson  of the Sechelt chamber said he'  hoped there could be better cooperation between the chambers.  Members learned there would be  closer co-operation this year on",,  tourism literature than was- experienced last year.  Memibers sworn in by Mr. McMynn .were the presidtent, vice-  presddent, and vice-presfident  Audrey Hinz, treasurer PhilHp  Gordon and secretary Shirley  Janowsky.  Alligators may be needed  How coone alligators get into  school board news! Well, it took  Truistee William Nimmo a* little  while (o work up a good head of  steam during a school board  discussion, but he managed it.  Now alligators have their place  in schooi board affairs.  It came ahout when the subject was the. ditch along the  highway in front of Elphinstone  school. Trustee Agnes Labonte  wanted to know what was being  done about clearing, away this  menace. The item was batted  around by the other trustees and  Movie men need  many homes  WANTED: 10 or 15 furnished  homes by April for memibers of  the Beachcomlber crew with CBC  television.  These homes or cottages  {.���ihould be -in the Gibsons-Roberts Creek-Langdale area and  could be occupied for a period  of six months.  Members of t'h*s crew which  left here from 'mid-September to  mid-October will return to begin what might be a full spring*  and summer session which  could extend to September.  So if you have a furnished  ���home or cottage which would  house some of the crew telephone Bob Gray at 684-0245, local 355.  the d'isomsision reached the point  where*"; Trustee Nimmo, confounded by inaction of those involved decided the best thing, to  do with the ditch was to fill it  full of alligators and make it a  tourist attraction.  As tPte".mcet'ng opened, Chairman Sheila Kitson announced  that the comimittees for this  year had been reduced leaving  just* four.

Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.  A victorious protest!  Members of the press were not invited to sit in on the discuis^  sion between the Regional board, Gibsons council and the roads  department on the cutoff proposition so it is only possible to take  the opinions of some of the people.who weire there.  On this basis we gather the opinion the roads department has  weakened somewhat on its desire to have the cutoff built on the  location which has created somewhat of a stink not only in the  immediate area but as far afield as Pender Harbour.  The possibility of 1,500 signatures on petitions circulated by  West Gibsons Heights Ratepayers association, some 1,200 of which  were presented to the meeting, may have had a good effect. It  might also be stated that persons circulating the petition did not  have any troujble in obtaining signers in Gibsons village proper.  So council's opinion and ratepayer opinion are not unanimous.  Apparently, roads officials* while they desire to keep the cost  of the cutoff down to as low a figure as they can, have"s.gni_.ed  that if the location they have selected is not desirable, something  else will have to be done. This is a concession to the general pub-  liiic and.one made wisely.  The idea of presenting a cutoff which pleases Gibsons officials  but not residents wiho have more to gain or lose, is not the wisest  policy. Perhaps roads officials must consider that 1,500 protestors  carry more weight in the long run than that of a few who consider  Gcibsons only while ignoring rural thinking on the subject.  The ball has now been thrown to the Regional board. As there  is no immediate hurry in deciding on where a road should go, perhaps a wider discussion will be of more importanceto the con\-  mninity than the very limited corisiiltations 'we; KayeexpOTiehced  in the past.  Alligators might help  When school trustees feel perturfbed by .the slowness of action  to remedy the increasingly dangerous section of the highway in  front of Elphiinstone, there is reason for one; of them to be sarcash  tic and suggest the ditch should be filled with alligators and made  a tourist show piece.  This is not to suggest that Gibsons council has been lacking in  consideration of the problem. It has been .striving to get some aa-  tion now for a number of months.  What council has envisaged for that area is that the ditch: become a storm sewer, filled in with a sidewalk covering the area.  This would help keep students and the pubic off the well travelled  highway. However, council has been informed by roads depairt-  ment officials that they had no money but hope to be able to handle  it this year. As the road is an arterial highway, council can only  make it a paper project then leave theihselves in the hands of the  roads department.  If there is a section of, the highway within the village that requires immediate attention,, it would be that one because both  school and highway traffic are increasing. Let there be some  hope that there will be action to get this section made less dangerous.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Charles Gooding, Gibsons municipal clerk, resigns and takes  over the job of Regional board  _��cretary-treasurer.  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce asks that the Squa-  n_:_!h road be completed as soon  as possible.  The tug Gulf Master sinks off  Trail Islands with the loss of  five lives.  10 YEARS AGO  A. E. Ritchey was chosen  Good Citizen by the annual  meeting of Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce.  A meeting of . Gibsons merchants decided not to make use  of trading, stamps which are  flooding other areas.  Expansion of village services  d*v*e to growth in the village was  discussed by council.  1.5 YEARS AGO  As neither side would budge  an inch on closing hours Gibsons merchants decided to drop  the argument.  Sedhelt Motor Transport is  .spending $72,186 to build a bus  depot at Sechelt.

Mainly about people  Baghdad on the Sunshine Cyasi  (By ED  THOMSON)  It would" appear  every  town  worthy of its name has its own  set of characters, its own economic and geographic peculiarities;   its  own  special points  of  interest,   special  claims to history   and   so   on.   Some  towns  more   than   others   take   great;  pride  and attach much impor--  tance  to   these   characteristics.  But   Gibsons   notable   claim   to  fame must be found in its color-'  fiul   characters,   which like   O.  Henry's  people   in   his   several  books on New York, Baghdad on,,  the  Subway,   all  make for  delightful study and reading.  O. Henry, that great spSnner  of yarns, whose warm glowing,  short stories of people fascinated an. earlier generation. In all  this, we do not for a moment  aspire to the role of an O. Henry (that tradition was carried  on and died long ago with Ring  Lardner and Damon Runyon).  But for the purpose of putting  Gibsons local characters on the  reScord, and they are real flesh  and blood people, who by simply doing their thing in their  own way, and by their rugged  individuality, have well earned  a special1 place arid regard in  this community. With this in  mind, we dare to take a page  out of O. Henry, that teller of  fabulous yarns, to dub Gibsons  as the Baghdad of the Sunshine  Coast. Our reference is the duly  incorporated town of Gibsons:  population, 1936 and still growing; Gibsons, that secluded hide-,  away, truly Baghdad on the Sunshine Coast!  Let's take a look at some of  our favorite characters, dealing  ever s0 gently, so that sensitivi-  tis be not upset.  If anything goes wrong, mechanically,  take it to  George,  anything from a child's toy steam  engine,    garden    tool's,    power  mowers,     outboards,     vacuum  cleaners.   You name it,  and if  it's fixable George, will tinker it  back into working order. After  all Sawyers is anything but a  ham-lhanded repairman^ Anyone  who has been apprenticed in the  Rolls Royce plants in England,  and  remained  with   that  company for more than 17 years,  working  his  way  from  tedious'  hand filing to  operating  black  diamond  high prec-sdon lathes,  where  you  had  to  be  dead-on  When tooling pistons, you've got  to be tops in your trade.  Later as trouble shooter for  Rolls Royce customers in Canada and United States, he was  recalled to England in 1938,  . wihere ne joined the R.A.F. as  /aircraft engineer. He served  overseas with Waveli's Desert  Rats in the hard gruelling North  African campaign. The war over  George finished his long stint  with Rolls Royce as engiineering-  supervisor, specializing in the  development of the early jets.  Sawyers returned to Canada  with his wife Dorothy and set up  his repair shop at White Rock.  When things became a bit too  urbanized to ihis liking in that  locality,' the Sawyers moved to  Gibsons just five years ago.  Meantime he has been taking  periodic refresher courses at  Canadian and Amrican washing machine, electric range and  refrigeration manufacturers," just  io keep his hand in.  Mr. Nuts and Rots is one of  : Gibsons most likeable and useful  ^characters. But don't cross the  little man unless you are sure  Iof your grounds, darn sure, or  fhe's quite apt to swarm all1 over  -you like a bobcat1 with a toothache!'  Off the bat there's Bob Kelly,  who we like to think of as Gibsons/ sanitary engineer. Cheery,  hardworking Bob, who will tell Another of our favorite' peo-  you "business is picking up," pie is the owner, operator and  and when he picks up your gar-- custodian of Al's Barn, that faib-  bage, you .b^ter^veat.ijoA-t and^M&is repository_'of,the discard-  ' ready -for  him on   the "idot  ���of1Y?W%its iand'piecfes' of long-gone  brook his Scottish, not Irish, displeasure. Bob, who lives in the  neatly landscaped home, down  around the curve of the lower  bay with his Mum, a forthright  old biddy, and just the; one to  keep her son, Bob, towing that  line, or else!  Kelly has recently extended  his sanitary engineering all the  way out to Sechelt. Already reports are drifting back, of the  good job he as doing out there.  Even as in Gibsons they like  Boib's style and the cheerful  manner in which he performs  this very necessary service.  Then of course, there's Mr.  Nuts and Bolts, George Sawyers,  Gilbsons. Mr. Fix-It man holding  forth in his gloriously cluttered  shop at the head of the wharf.  Gibsoriites.  The amazing thing about Al  Bergnach and his barn is, you  are always welcome to browse  through this wonderful welter of  jettisoned furniture, houseware,  electrical gadges of all kinds,  luggage, bric-a-brac arid silver-  pkamibing fixtures, old pictures,  luggage, (bric-a-brac and silver  ware. Al even has ah honest-to-  goodness, right^from-Paris solid  rosewood bidet, complete with  porcelain container, which he  fclaiims once did good service in  a San Francisco Fancy House,  way back in 1890.  The strange part of the oper- ..  ation, the gimmick that stamps  Al for the characer he is: You  are free to look around to your  heart's content, even to peering  Potatoes are useful!  Potatoes are the craziest  things. They'll remove bags  from under the eyes. They're  good for cleaning oil paintings.  They take rust from pots and  pans. And they're not fattening.  About those 'poehes sous les  yeux' or bags under the eyes, a  slice of raw potato applied to  the swollen area for 15 minutes  does the trick, according t�� Larry Jorgenson, secretaryHmanag-  er of the Alberta Potato com-  missiion in Calgary.  Oil paintings? Rub raw sliced  potato over the painting and  then wipe off with a damp rag.  Mr. Jorgenson says, the oils  glisten with new life after the  potato poultice;  Try the same thing on rusty  sections of the kitchen pots and  pans to bring them back to mint  condition,  says Mr.  Jorgenson.  But potatoes fattening? Bunk,  says Mr. Jorgenson, and he sets  out to prove his point.  He quotes such sources as the  federal department of health,  the departments of agriculture  of Canada and the United States,  that a medium size potato baked  in its skin contains only 93 calories; one boiled in it's skin has  76 calories, and one peeled,  mashed with milk added produces only 65 calories.  Take a serving of riice with a  few raisins added and the cal  orie total reaches 146, he points  out.  "Potatoes have been, maligned for years as being fattening,'5  Mr. Jorgenson says*, "but the  culprit is .not the potato, it is  the calorie-rich toppings that so  many people add to their potato." �� ��� "-.  ; "Even in most reducing diets,  potatoes should remain part of  the daily food' intake," he says.  "Potatoes are an excellent  source of Vitamin C, and their  values in iron, potassium, niacin and thiamin are high.

CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  Gibsons ��� 886-2481  ������*��� Last Thursday night's meeting  of the school board was given  over to a discussion of changes  in graduation requirements and  the effect they would haye on  secondary school's.  The discussion gave Principal  D. L. Montgomery and Vice-  Principal . L. Grant of Elphin-  ston school plus Principal A. L.  Thompson of Pender Harbour  Secondary school, the chance to  speak their iminds.  Supt. R. R. Hanna in his preamble said the change by the  education department occurred  in September and it allows great  er freedom by the student for  the' selection of -courses within  the range of school subjects.  Mir. Hanna outlined university  entrance methods and added  that a reorganization of exam  ptroceduires was being underf  taken. There would be another,  look at the program for 1974.  Mir. Thompson regarded the  changes ,as minimal and maintained that the school can only  offer courses based on qua.if-ca-  tions of its teachers. Until there  was a change of staff the school  could not contemplate course,  changes. Therefore the present  situation   was   self-perpetuating  He argued some courses such  as French 11 may disappear because of the smallnesS'Of classes. However if the board was in  the   position  of   financing   new  courses it could be' a big help.  Mr. -Montgomery of Elphinstone. school argued that the  change in graduation: requirements was more philosophical  than anything else. Selection of  programming in grade 11 was  basically the same with more  freedom of choice. He explained  there were some school limitations. For exaimple the shop side  of the industrial program could  handle 20 pupils while mathematics*' could take 38 which resulted in a limitation in the one  course.  Mr. Montgomery stressed the  pressure that could be placed  on counselling services in order  to get the youth to make up his  or her mind in grades eight and  nine. He was unable to state future trends and maintained  counsel'lors would' have to work  harder on grade tens.  Counselling he said would become very important and work  with parents would be necessary  but this mdight not be good  enough. Students ' must really  think at grade 10 level.  This might produce some disadvantages such as overloading  in some areas which could rec  suit in restrictions. At present  the school ratio" was 60 percent  commercial industrial and. 40  percent academic.  Both he and! Mr. Thomson argued   for   a  full  time  district  counsellor not attached to any  school, one who would work  from the school board office.  Supt. Hanna said he would take  a look at the prospects for this.  Following the presentation of  argument board members and  principa'-s opened upon the general situation and Trustee Bernie Mulligan speaking of Pender Harbour Secondary School  said that the time could possibly  come when that school would be  'liimflited to grade eight as the top  grade with the other students  having to come down to Elphinstone as expansion at Pender  Harbour would not be feasible  The boaird cannot continue to  throw good money after bad.

The Labor Scene  The Almighty Dollar by James  Wallace (Privileged Correspondent) in Union Local 297, Port  Mellon, monthly publioation,  Guardian:  Commanding your thoughts  each day; ,' beckoning you to  work; stealing your leisure, sac-  nif-icing your family and af-ect-  ing your health and happiness;  the dollar affects us to one of  . two extremes. Either we work  for a dollar or a dollar works  ; -fbr'usr. ���;������'  With today's easy consumer  credit and a complex monetary  system many Canadians became  finanicially burdened senselessly. This readily available cash  and goods has allowed the Canadian consumer to have ari out-  starid-ng debt of eight billion .dollars. When you borrow money  there is no increase in your in-  - come and to think otherwise is  a rndsconiception. Borrdwed money lessens youir total buyihg poiw- .  er by the interest payable and  restricts buiying power While  principal paytmerit enforce.  Your potential ibuying power  equals net pay minus total  monthly basic necessities. There  fore persons who pay interest to  any source halve less buying  power than their counterparts  equal in all other things. You  may have encountered two people of the same wage scale with  sl.'(n.ilar fixed ^.bills! having two  different standards  of living.  The consumer price index is  the cost^ relationship between  any two specified periods. The  Canadian dollar has a present  buying power of 68 cents compared to 100 cents ten years ago  On this basis, $4 today is equal to  $2.72 ten years ago. Consadering  taxation, $2.72 provided wage  earners with a higher standard  of living ten years ago.  If you want a better standaird  of living dbri't ask for more :  money. We have made no financial gains in the last decade.  For every raise we receive the  consumer-price index rises correspondingly -or higher.^ Requesting higher wages is a ekrdinal  sin and labor is attacked for inflation. During , contract negotiations lealve the wage scale  frozen with increases concurrent t0 average rises, in the consumer price index. All emphasis  should converge on benefits of  all descriptions, eg: holidays,  dental plan and better pension,  ��� etc-':--.  And lastly, pay hikes don't release people from debt. Look at  your record. -Last, year, ,this  year and next year you'll, still be  ���in dr.fot. And in each of these  years  you've had  considerable   .  wage increases. ;'^fe-i  Stopping 4 Saving  at KEN'S LUCKY DOLLAR  FOOD STORE  T.S.

Over the last few years, the  children's book tirade has be-  ���come big business. Each year  the market is flooded with pub-  licatinos on every conceivable  subject. And with rising costs in  almost everything we need and  want, books are no exception.  Unfortunately, the price of a  book is riot necessarily an indication of its merit. Attractive  format, good binding and expensive color printing may explain  the high cost of a certain book,  but the cost is no guide, to its  intrinsic value.  There are many qualities to  look for in a child's book. Is it  well written, in a dear and  readable style? Does the plot  have vitality, and adventure?  Does it really have s__r_eth_ng to  say? Is it a story to capture  and sustain a child's imagination? If it is a book on science,  is it scientifically sound and factual? Writers for today's juvenile market are not afraid to  tackle the very real problems  that occur in the lives of many  children, includling divoiice, fear  ipain and death, which they ex-  iplore with delicacy and conn-  ���passipn.  Many people are not aware of  a recent development in children's books, the introduction  of '^apeaibacks'' 'with the same  wordis and illustrations as those  found iri the hard cover, more  expensive originals.  With all the reading material  available on the market, choosing wisely may seem an impos-'  slble task  for a busy parent.  Very often you will probably  buy the old favorites you* loved  as a child, but sometimes you  - may need help. Children's li-  Ibrariiaris, who spend! their time  reading and assessing children's  litrature,  can advise you.  Mrs. Helen Robertson, a specialist in children's books has  written an absorbing article for  the Consumers'. Association of  Canada in the September-Qcto-  ber issue of the Canadian Consumer. It lists books that are of  interest to children and deals  with the part public libraries  can play in stimulating your  child to read. The French edition, Le Consommateur Canadi-  en, has a special article in  French. Both of these publications should be avaiable at your  public library or you can write  directly to the Consumers' Association of Canada in Ottawa.  'Special lists are also available  from the Winnipeg Public library, free of charge, all you  have to do is request them. One  list covers books for pre-sichool  age up to Grade . 6, entitled  "This Time Buy a Book to Read  Aloud." Other lists are available  covering a variety of interests  such as current affairs, sports,  science and crafts for all ages.  When writing, suggest the interest areas and approximate  ages of the youngsters. Address  your request for lists to Mrs.  Helen Robertson, 1 Children's  Book Consultant, Winnipeg Public Dibratry, 380 William Avenue,  Winnipeg R3A 0Jl, Manitoba.

One of the items passed by the  parliament was a grant of $100  towards a UBC Faculty of Applied Science fund to design and  maiu_fiacture an urban automobile. This car would be a two  passenger car that would be  close to non-polluting a�� it  would be powered by liquid natural gas.  The parliament is for young  men between the ages of 15 and  21 years so they may learn par-  loiaanenitiairy procedure. The mem  bers come from the various  church groups in the province  as well as: 4-H clubs and other  youth groupsr  One of the activities that the  Older Boys' Parliament sponsors is the House of Concord.  This is a Salvation Army home  for young male- offenders, between the ages of 15 and 21.  Once a monthvparliameirtairianis  g|o out to the House of Concord.  The monthly actitvitiesK include  floor hockey, basketball and bull  sessions: United by the common  bond of youth, this mixing off"  young men with differing life  experiences assists a valuable  correction. program.  A most important project that  the    Older    Boys'    Bai-iainent  sponsors and organizes is Camp  Phoenix. Camp Phoenix wasi  first started in the*summer of  1967 and has grown since that  time. This year 42 campers,,  agamsit' 30 ire 1967, will go to  George Pringle Memorial Camp  at Shawnigan Lake on Vancou-;  yer Island. Campers are selected m consultation with the department of rehabilitation and  social improvement'. The pur-  po-st of Phoenix, which is financed, managed and staffed by the  Parliamein'tarians, is to provide  a oamiping experience for the  boys and a growing experience  for the individual Parliamentarians. ..'"���/'  How does parliament fund itself? How much does parliament  cost? In 1972 parliament must  raise $2,922, which is raised by  the individual parliamentarians.  Each year every me-mbr and  observer imiuist raise $35 from his  cons^^eney.  The donationis are called  bonds. A-bond holder's return  comes with the knowledge that  he is helping the indilyidual par-  liamentarians, the boys at the  House of Concord,; the boys' at  Camp Phoenix and many more.  Any person who takes a share  in the work of the Older Boys'  Parliament receives for hie investment, "dividends thereon, in  Canadian Chrdstiian Citizens-hip."  Recycling Awareness  It's difficult to re-cycle anything involved in our automo-  bi|.as. But we can conserve, and  cut downi on pollution by change  ing bur. driving habits. Cars; are  responsible for about half off; the  country's air pollution, includ-*  ing 60% of the carbon monoxide  a colorless, odorless, lethal gas.  ���~ We need cars in this area, but  smaller'.ones, often, than what  we drive. Besides consMering a  smalir car, here are some tips:  1. Keep your engine tuned.  Have the positive crankcase  valve cleaned regularly. Keep  the carburetor adjusted. Clean  or replace the. air filter regu  larly. A grimy filter can increase emission by 75%. Use  .. non-tead or low-lead fuels when  possible. Keep spark plugs and  points in good condition.  2. Don't let' your engine idle  needlessly. Idling produces "the  highest concentration of polut-  ants. ���-.'-.- -, ��� ;  3. Double up on i trips., Form  or join a car pool for regular  trips.  4. At the gas station, don't  let them ''top-off" your ���'..tank.'  Thiils causes waste and spillage.  5. Drive smoothly. Fast acceleration and deceleration  cause high pollution emission.

But it is much  more severe. Flu viruses can  work their way into the breathing passageways and damage the  linings, then spread to the air  sacs where oxygen and ca__on  dioxide are exchanged. The  workings of the entire body can  be disrupted.  Antimiorobal drugs do not attack flu viruses but - they' can  work to fehd.of. other complications. With bed rest and medical  attention, most people recover  within days or weeks from; the  flu. But if the infection is not"  properly tended, complications  like pneumonia can set in.  There are several types of  pneumonia, some more serious  than others. Half of them are  caused by viruses, and* antibiotics are ineffective in treating  viral pneumonia.

Consideration should also  be given at this time for the  easements r-equired for a natural gas pipeline in the very near  future and a water supply main  in due course.  It is not up to this committee  to deal with feasibility studies  of routes A, B or C which the  highways departn_en.t' envisaged  as alternatives to the present  proposal. The department indicated that they .are not going  to take any of these alternatives  because of alleged higher costs  and engineering difficulties. Our  committee is only concerned to  suibtmit through the proper channels their observations on any  actual proposals and to advise  the Regional board whether  these proposals, are acceptalble  to the people or not. Nevertheless, we have the impression  that the highways department  selected the alternatives only to  come to inflated costs and en-  gineering diifificulties in compari-  son to any other than their original choice. ���;.-..  The comimittee also: wishes to  point out tp the-Regional board  that -it was placed in a very  difficult position by the many  conflicting and confusing statement's coming from what is normally considered authoritative  sources.  Originally we were informed  that the project was supposed to  be the Gibsons Bypass ��� so  named by the highways department themselves. If this designation created the impression  amongst the taxpayers' that it  was the first step in the much  talked about reconduction of the  Langdale-Powell River Hiighiway,  such responsalbility rests with the  highways department. The de*  partment cannot be too surprised when .people find ���, it contradictory when the highiway�� department declares now (after receiving criticism about the planning) that the bypass is neither  intended as the Gibsons Bypass nor even a part of that new  highway, but only a re-routing  of the old and already obsolete  Highway 101.  May we invite all sponsors' of  the projectto make up their  minds what the proposed Gibsons Bypass is supposed to be  and after a consensus' has been  reached to draw up proper  plans to achieve such objectives.  If it is supposed merely to divert' , traiff-c from the schools,  the presertt plan appears to lis  as one of the most extraivagant  diversions. If. it is part of the  future^ highiway, it is in the  wrong location: And if it is only  a re-location of an. olflierwise  obsolete highway, it is unnecessary to go to such expense for  a temporary solution.  ���' The Advisory Planning Committee, therefore, resjJ&etfiully  makes, the following recommen-  dat-ons:  1. that the presently proposed routing for the Gibsons Bypass be turned, down;  2.- that the Regional board obtain clarification what the bypass is supposed to a'chieve ac-'  /cording to the intentions of its  sponsors;  3. that aifter the intentions  are once finally and unequivocally established, proper plans be  drawn up in the light of the objectives and in the best possible  manner for the ���benefit of the  people concerned with y such  plans to be published for all to  see and opportunity foe given for  a full consideration toy the people affected';  4. that the Regional board  through    its    proper    planning  . agencies select as soon as possible a strip of land to be designated as a utility corridor. All  higihiways, hydro, gas arid, water  lines are to be restricted to ttie  'corridor so that all landfwihich  can be used for better purposes ,  be retained, to the benefit of the  people who live in the area.  The above observations . and  reCHomlmendations' are supported  by the two local ratepayers' or-  gaini'zations, which haive recently  suibmitted their own briefs to the  Regional' board. These briefs  should be considered together  with this presentation. The foregoing brief has-been prepared  for guidance of the director of  area E in the meeting between  the Regional board, the department of highways and the council of the Village of Gibsons.,It  is also backed by a petition,  presently drculating in the area  by which the authorities are requested that the present plans  and proposals for the bypass be  withdrawn and the whole matter  fully re-examined and worked  out for the public interest aind  the welfare of the taxpayers*'  ���only.  ��� ������..' ���;;*"  HARM FUJffll HOME LTD  Serving the Sunshine  A COMPLETE CHAPEL OR CHURCH SERVICE  AT MODERATE COST  J.

Our 16 year old son was  badly injured in a car accident.  He has now recovered and the  insurance company has offered  $3,000 to settle his claim. We  feel our son should get much  more, however, our son wants  to settle and use the $3,000 to  buy ihin-self a car. What should  we-do? We are afraid our son  may sign a release anyway.  A. The insurance ���company  would not likely accept a release signed (by your son as he  ���is a minor and a minor cannot  give a valid release. However,  as your son's guardian you  could enter into -a release- agreement with the insurance company if you first obtain a supreme court order approving the  settlement or if. the settlement  agreed to is less than $3,000,  with the consent of the public  trustee. '.>���,��� --:���.."���-���-:-^  The public trustee or the court'  will have t0fbe satisfied that the  settlement is for the benefit of  your son. Once the settlement is  approved the money will be  paid into court by the insurance  company and, to obtain any of  the money for paying expenses  relating to the accident, it will  be necessary to obtain the. approval of the public trustee.  Once your son is 19 he can settle 'his claim him'self, or, if it  has been settled and the money  has been paid into court, he will  Towing  SECHELT TOWING & SALVAGE  LTD.

Our daughter suffered a  broken arm while at summer  camp when- the swing she was  playing on broke due to lack, of  ���maniten'ance. Before our daughter left for camp we signed a  document stating that the camp  would not ��be liable for any damages resulting from injuries received by our child while there.  Does this mean we cannot sue  the owners of the camp?  A. This release will prevent  you from suing the caimp operators yourselves, however, you  can, as your daughter's "next'  iiuend" sue on her behalf. You  could, in. any-' event, only have  sued yoi_r_ei_ for such bills as  you would/ bylaw, have been liable to pay on' her behalf, lor example, doctor's bills. You can  as her ;-next friend" sue for  her pain and suffering, etc., or  she could do so herself on becoming 19.  Q. I am 18 years old. Recently I purchased a car on time  and 1 told the car salesman I  was 19. I lost my job shortly afterward so I returned the car  and. demanded my $100 deposit  back as, being a minor, I cannot be bound by any contract.  They would not give me my  $100. Should I sue them?  A. It is doubtful whether you  would succeed in a lawsuit as  you entered the contract fraudulently and an infant is in the  same <pos>itiion as an adult with  respect to fraud or deceit. Thus  you cannot use the fact that  you are an infant as a factor in  yciuir favor in claiming the $100.  You will, therefore, be in the  same position as an adult and  as the $100 was presumably a  deposit you wall lose it as you  were not wi'lling to complete the *  transaction.  You are not entirely correct  where you say that a minor cannot be bound by any contract as  c o n t r a c t-s are enforceable  against infants if they are for  the necessities of life, for example, a reasonable quantity of  food, clothing and shelter. A  car, however, is not usually a  necessity but a luxury.  Typewriter Repairs  TYPEWRITER REPAIRS  & SERVICE  Agent for Hermes Typewriters  Phone 886-2728  R. D, THOMAS & CO.

The games started at 7:30 with Elphie Senior  Girls playing the opposing Tartan team. The Elphinistorie team  put up a hard fight but was defeated by the* more polished  Powell River team.  The score was Elphie 27, Tartans 32. High scorers* were Gail  Blomgren with 14, Shirley  Hoehne with 5 and Mary Mueh-  lenkafmp with 4.'  The ���.second game saw Elphie's  Senior Boys meet the senior  team from Max Cameron. This  was easily for-Elphi the most  exciting game of the season.  The Cougars took an early  lead and for the first quarter  outhustled the Max Cameron  team. At the end of the first,,  the Elphie squad ran into foul  trouble and was slowed down.  The game progressed to the end  of the third with Elphie trailing  four to six points at most times.  In the fourth the Cougars got  (back in the game and stayed  basket for basket two points behind right till the end when the  Cougars failed to hoop the ball  by a mere second.  Final score in this cliffhanger  was 43-41 in favor of Powell River. The top scorers for Eiphi  were Brad Norris with 12 points,  Art Dewwlth" 11 and Bill Shed-  don with 7.  The top scorers for Max Cameron were Maignois, 15, Duck, 12  and Harrison with 10.  The last home game will be  on Jan. 28 against Templeton.  This game should be wortlh seeing as ElpM will have worn off  most of its Christmas fat. The  public should;support this team  in its final vhoorie effort.
