 Provincial Library,  Victoria* B. C.  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 836 2622  Volume 25  Number 15, April 12, 1972.  10c per copy  Sechelt  tax rate  holdsline  With increased revenues and  greater expenditure than last  year, Mayor Ben Lang expects  Sechelt village will continue  its 18 mill tax rate for 1927.  He anticipates total revenue  of $60,528, up from $51,832 of  last year with municipal expenses at about $48,000 plus. He  regarded the village-as being  in a fairly healthy financial  condition and could see no reason for a mill rate increase.  Major capital budget expense will be on roads with  $18,000 along with $10,000 for  acquisition of land. The annual  provisional budget breakdown  on expenditures, not yet final,  will include $12;000 for road  maintenance and street lights,  $2,000 for recreational facilities and $7,000 for Trail Bay  seawall.  The revenue increase will include $4,000 from�� tax assessments and an increase in the  government per capita grant  amounting to $2,700.  As the result of attending a  municipal seminar at Harrison  Hot Springs recently Aid. Harold Nelson reported that council should, if involved in land  use contracts, spell out all detail^ because in the event of  the "council having to take over  the contract at any "period all  specifications should be included with nothing left toJ  chance.  On another phase of discus-  - sion*��_4��Harrison Hot-Springs  the mayor agreed that mayors  should not become chairmen of  Regional boards.  Both the mayor and Aid. Nel  son -bund Sechelt problems  were general among municipalities and that most of the  'questions they intended to ask  were all cleared up by other  municipalities asking the same  questions.  Council approved, a $165  grant to the Lions club swimming lesson classes to be held .  this summer, and. $250 was 1  granted the Chamber of Commerce for its S-unmer tourist  work." xx-':"-���:"������'. 1 .'������ v:. ���������������-:��� ������.

Gibsons council sets  priorities for paving  Gibsons paving for this year  will have as a priority Gower  Point, -Road   frorh   School   to  Winn roads, with Franklin Rd  as second priority and possibly  "the paving of Park road from  Highway 101 to the north end  ,. of Brothers Memorial Park.  ..   Th_s*w^sc_-mqunc^dtpjt_^ues<  day night's "Gibson's'council by  the acting mayor, Aid. Charles  Mandelkau. Paving should start  as soon as weather is suitable.  Due -to an attack of laryngitis Mayor' Walter Peterson  did not attend the meeting. In  his place Aid. Charles Mandelkau took the mayor's chair.  Four tenders,'. three - from  Vancouver, were received for  the library-museum floor covering and' the Ken DeVries  tender at $10.64 per yard totalling $1,862 was accepted.  The DeVries tender was second  lowest; The highest was $10.85  arid the lowest $10.40.  The  wharf  lease  with   the  /federal   department   of  transport was accepted for a three  year period. ' 11:.-  A request that the tennis-  courts be leased to the tennis  club was read out including a  request that the courts be' put  into proper shape. The acting  mayor said money was hot available for bringing the courts  up to par. As regards leasing  the courts this was not regarded feasible until a strong club  revealed itself. Council will  check its paving program to  ��� see what paved courts would  cost. Council hopes to have a  line-up of - cost for the next  meeting. The problem was outlined by a Gibsons Athletic  Association delegation.  Douglas Smith of the Village  Store and owner of the next  door hardware store property  placed a plan before council  which would mean construction pf a five storey section in  rear of the hardware store to  allow for more space. The  shoreline drops sharply to the  water. Council decided to turn  the problem over to its planner for consideration.. Mr.  Smith also brought up the matter of too many dogs affecting  his Village Store summer business. He was informed council  was working on the problem.  A claim for $249 for flood  damage occurring last Oct. 26  on the J. S. Metzler property  at 1526 Sargent Rd., resulting  in erosion of soil and (damage  to a domestic oil tank, was not  accepted. Council through its  insurance company found it  was not negligent. There was  quite a bit of flooding at other  places at the same time., The,  claim is however being pressed  - by Mr. Metzler's lawyer. t  A claim for 75 feet of new  - rope, lost when John Shewan  had to cut it as his boat sank  1 along with the dock recently,  -1-ended with-council,stating tbtat  * when federal authorities raise  the sunken wharf he will be  able to get his 75 feet of rope  back.  The lone tender f or;painting  the fire hall, ifrom. Gunthers  Painters, North .Vancouver,  was turned down _ts being on  the high side.  Two special meetings of Gibsons council, one on March 27  and. the other on March 28,  ended with the adoption of Bylaw 23,0, the Library-Museum  bylaw authorizing borrowing  of $40,000 from the Receiver-  General.under federal loan approval. Three readings were  made March 27 and the final  one on March 28.   J  This loan will cover the cost  of construction of the addition  to the  Municipal Hall  to  be  ..fused as the library and muse-  vum.   ;������;.  Water helps!  Annual budget of the Regional District has increased from  ���1971 figures by $36,349 making  the 1972 budget $381,992. This  was revealed when the budget  'bylaw was given three readings at the last monthly meeting..   ���,.'. .'."-,  Increased use of water has,  helped the board increase its  budget. The 1971 total water  revenue was $135,061 and for  this year it is $204,389. Water  connection income rose from  $4,500 to $9,000 and private users from $40,825 to $45,5,68. .  Land charges also increased  from $85,775 to $88,500. Last  year the water service showed  a deficit of $3,961.  The $281,992 budget' expenditure on the various board operations reveals that water will  be the heaviest with $204,389  allotted this year against $135,  061 last year.  Expenditures for fire protection! street lighting, garbage  sites, planning and zoning and  building and plumbing inspection all show increases. The  only drop in expenditure is in  garbage collection which has  dropped frornr iast year's $26,-  120-to $21,900 this year.  -A- desire- to have Aid. Ted  Hume appointed as Gibsons  representative on the Regional  District /, planning board has  been .expressed by Chairman'  Harry Almond.  . He has-done so in a letter to:  all directors, in w^hich- he put^  lines his ��� bb j ectiyes V as chairman /of the: Regional board. A  copy of his letter.'follows;  To All Directors:'..  In view of the recent argute  merits about representation oh  ���'-'  the planning committee, I have  / decided to make some changes  "~t  in the comrnittee set-up.        .-  In niaking these  changes I  have been guided by numerous  -j facts, some of these being the  -  claim of Gibsons council that  V they  lack  representation,   the  J need   for   better   co-operation  ,*   between the;board. and the'vil-  ���   lages, the suggestion of;������; Direc-J .  tor Wolverton that  all board  _. members be onthe committee,  ^ and also the feeling that plan-  \ rmg^ business hais been so hea-  j vjyl recently with small items  ./  which/ though irriportant, have  excluded the discussion on the  overall development plan due  to lack of time.  The changes will be as folr  lows: The main; planning committee will; consist of all board  memibers. This committee will  deal with all iterias/bf planning  which affect they area as a  whole and thei^ma^y^yetraTl',..  development plaru^his/ coni-  mitfee/wiUlrneet at ie_-jt every  second .ripri^, xri^  ^^if requir^feThe^  be the Chairman of the Board.  There will/^so' 00<a subcommittee which will deal with  matters  of   lesser  importance  Spring fee-off  had  The annual spring Tee-Off  Day of the Sunshine Coast on  April 8 proved a Successful event. Sunshine prevailed most  of the day, making it very  pleasant for the large number  of members who turned out.  /Some 58 members competed  . in the tournament which got  away to a shot-gun start at 10  a.m. Winners of this were:  Men, low net, Jim Leith, Don  Sleep/Frank Richards, Al  Boyes.  High net, Joe Horvath.  Hidden hole low score on No.  9, Tony Burton with a birdie.  Ladies: Low net, Norma  Gaines, Jean Gray, Maureen  Sleep, Lil.Fraser.  High net, Jean Meadows.  ;     Hidden  hole,  low  score   on  Nb. 7, Audrey McKenzie with  a birdie.  Refreshrrients were served  following the 18th hole.  Charter meeting  for new club  The charter installation  dance of the Army, Navy &  . Ail-; .Force Veterans of Canada,  Gibsons Unit 357, should be a  , pretty lively affair.  The initiation and taking of  oath ceremonies attended by a  full turnout will tax the capacity of the Roberts Creek Le-  * gion hall to its limit.  . For a good evening of happy  dancing, the "Bald Headed  Eagle" will again attack the  Hammond organ and what  with free admission and spe-  - cial spot prizes it is pretty hard  to lose anything except the  blue's 'this "coming Saturday  evening at 7 o'clock.  which are purely.of a local nature such as minor re-zbiiing  applications,  and   leases,   etc.,"  which   would   not   affect   the  over-all planning.   .  This sub -committee will consist of the present planning  committee chairman, who will  chair the sub-cornmittee, the .  board "chairriian, arid the director or directors of the area concerned in. the subject matter  on the agenda. This. sub-committee will meet each month  and will make recommendations to the board, arid will be  guided by the Regional Board  planner as to the relative importance of each item and its  effect on the overall plan, and  if any doubt exists any such  item will be left to the main  cornmittee to deal with.  In regard to members at  large, I am appointing Alderman Hume to the main com  mittee to .give greater depth  to the participation of Gibsons  council. I also appoint MrY Gilker as another member, at  large .to the main cbnirnittee,  as in the past his idjeas .and  experience have been of great  value to the planning commit-  tee..  However, since any recommendations of the main,committee of the whole board  would more or less automatically be accepted by the board  members at large would have  no voting rights but would be  present merely as observers  with the privileges of offering  ideas and suggestions.  These changes will go into  effect May 1, the date of the  first meeting of the main committee to be decided at the  next regular board meeting.  ���JL J. ALMOND,  Chairman.  Driftwood Players  awarded top honors  For the second time in their  short three year history Driftwood Players h_tve swept top  honors at the Vancouver Island Drama Festival. Last week  in competition with drama  groups from Victoria to Camp-,  bell River and including Pow-  ell/ River _uid Texada Island,  the local group took: four of  the eight awards'^given.  ';-pir:ecto_^;..6f.'t-ie^lay.:Suddenr  i_y/r,La:st/;'/S^ John  ;-Bi_msidg_ia^^  one for best "director iri the festival and another for best all-  round play production on behalf of the club.  Miss Nest Lewis won a trophy as best actress. in the festival-arid Pat Baker won best  supporting actor. In addition  to these awards Miss Barbara  Williams of Driftwood Players  was runner-up to Miss Lewis  for best actress.  The trophies for best actress  and best, director, received by  Miss Lewis and Mr. Burnside  respectively, were donated by  the department of education.  In her remarks adjudicator  Mrs. Paddy Malcolm English  said Driftwood Players had  chosen a most difficult play,  one that she thought on reading before the festival would  ' prove unplayable, but the local  club had suceeded in pulling  off and had done an admirable  job. None of the cast had acted  in a festival play before and  It had been hoped to produce,  the play iri Gibsons this week  but some of the set used in the  play was badly damaged in  transit. As a consequence three ^  performances of the award-  winning play will be given in  Gibsons on April 20, 21 aricl,22.  Driftwood Players hope to  have its major trophies ori display hi some local merchant's  window this week, so that the  community can see reasons for  support of its drama club.  Lions will help Cavalcade  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade, in  order to raise operating money  for this year, has made an arrangement with the Sunshine  A Coast Lions  club who sell  the Community Birthday  Calendar in  this area,  that profits  from the  sales in Gibsons area will  go to the Cavalcade. The  ���Cavalcade, in turn, has arranged with two youth groups  to conduct a house to house  canvass on April. 11 and 12, and  they, will also share in the proceeds.  At the Cavalcade committee  meeting Tuesday night in the  Legion Hall, it was hoped that  upwards of 1,000 calendars  could be sold in the area.  Other things discussed included the need for a boat hull  $1,000 REWARD  A reward of $1,000 is offered  by the Council of Forest Industries for information leading  to trie arrest and conviction of  anyone conspiring to steal logs  pr log booming equipment  within the-province.  , Any person with such information ; should communicate  with the . Security Manager,  Council of Forest Industries at  684-0211 or the log theft section of the RCMP at 666-3813  or the nearest police authority.  for the Friday night opening,  a hull which will float without  too much; difficulty.; Anyone  knowing the whereabouts pf or  having such a hull that they  would donate for the committee to blow up is asked to call  Joanne Rottluff or any member of the Cavalcade committee.  The fate of the tugboat race  this year depends on the state  of labor negotiations on that  weekend. Arrangements are  going ahead for a bigger and  better race than ever, but it  finally depends on the IWA  and the Guild "whether the  boats will be available.  Arrangements for most other  events are going ahead smoothly. The Kinsmen will run their  beer garden again this year on  the tennis courts; the Kiwanis  club is adding something new,  a fish derby, from Friday to  Sunday. The Chamber of Commerce is working on something  special which should add more  excitement to the weekend.  ttUMW  RAIN RECORD  March rainfall set a record  for this area with a total of  8.21 inches, the heaviest rain  recorded in the 11 years of  measurements. The ten year  average is 4.87.  High temperature was 61 degrees on March 16 and the  overnight low 30 degrees on  March 6, 7 and 26. "/'  nQn__i-<ntm____i 2     Coast News, April 12, 1972.

An unusual letter was received a few days ago by the Coast  News. It was so unusual the editor held it over for use as an  editorial on the inflationary period in which we live. Here is  the letter:  "Editor:  I am just wondering -who gets $175 per  month in the senior citizens group. This writer does not  get that much.  "Let us senior citizens take a  stand against  any  imore raises in our pension checks.  There must  be a  stand somewhere. Just add up all the raises in incomes  and prices at so much per year and see the numbers by  the year 2000.  "Iri the meantime watch a spry young pup chase  its own tail but never catch up.  "What happened to the Golden Rule? Where is it  hidden? Who has the courage to look for it and bring  it out in the open? ������- Pensioner.'  There is a lot of sense in that letter.  Take for  instance  Premier Bennett's 6.5% ceiling in wages, multiply that by the  28 years to reach the year 2000, not forgetting the cumulative  effect of yearly increases. What have you? Well*, it could be a  , wheelbarrow full of paper money of questionable value.  It must be a brave soul that runs counter to the general  .trend among pensioners who seek more money on which to live.  They cannot be blamed for their desire. But they are only compounding the situation they want to see checked.'  Somehow this game of money leapfrog must be checked. It  is not too far fetched to suggest Premier Bennett is jurnping  the gun on Ottawa in arguing that Ottawa should step on the "  brake. Who knows how soon it might occur. The visit of President'Nixon of the United States might have some bearing on  the timing.  John Fryer, general secretary for the B.C. Government Employees' Union maintains it is simplistic nonsense for a provincial government to pretend that inflation can be curbed by applying wage controls to public employees while there are no restrictions on wages in the private sector or on profits, prices and  interest rates. Fryer is a graduate of the London School of Economics and former research director for the Canadian Labor  Congress. Mr. Fryer as an expert (?) should/be inclined to stop  inflation, not add to it: ��  Canada in printed word  CANADA 1972, a 336-page reference? handbook compiled  and edited by Statistics Canada is now on sale, priced at $1.50  at .Information Canada and in private bookstores across Canada.

Grade six and seven of the  Reserve school will be integrated in Sechelt Elementary  School.

Rechecking the June, 1961,  census of 1,011 for Gibsons, a  new figure, 1,091 has been set.

While personal consumption  expenditures remain the most  important component of overall demand, a number of changes over the past decade have  altered both the consumer's  pattern of expenditure, and the  relationship between income  and consumption. _  The average consumer, says'  the Bank .of Montreal in its  Business Review, is younger,  better educated, arid supports  a smaller* family. In addition,  there appears to be some desire to resist materialistic urges and to buy products on the  basis of functional efficiency  ��� smaller homes, economy-  type appliances, and bottom-of-  the-line cars.  Over the past ten year period aggregate personal income  has risen at an average?>rate of  8.4%. The gain in individual  family incomes has been equally impressive, almost doubling  to around $9,000, and reflecting a steady advance in salaries and the rapid rise in the  number of working wives.  . Consumer    trends    between  1959 arid 1969 show a marked.  reduction in the importance of  essential  living  items   in  the  overall family budget. Outlays  for food, shelter, and. clothing  increased by about 40% over-  this period, but their relative  weight in the average family's  total annual expenditure decreased from 58% in 1959 to  53% in 1969.  To a certain extent this relative decline may be attributed  to the fact that as purchasing  power expanded, a greater proportion of income was available for discretionary or nonessential expenditures, such as  recreation and travel.  For example the percentage  number of familes who owned  one or more cars increased to  80% in 1969 compared with  63% in 1959. During this period it is estimated that discretionary spending in Canada  grew at an average annual rate  of 9% (compared with 7% for  total consumer spending) to  stand at about $15 billion in  1969.  The Bank notes that the rapid rise in income has allowed  the consumer a greater latitude  within which to make expenditure decisions and more freedom to advance or delay purchases.  An ode to Sechelt  (By R. H. CHESTNUT)  The theme of this Sechelt Ode was written many years ago.  I was a resident of Sechelt 1916-1918. Many years of launch _ife  gave me the opportunity to make my'sly glances in the direction of Sechelt.  SECHELT, why is it you command  A second glance from me;     .  As you have commanded, year on year.  From Coastwise Seamanry.  From White Rocks Light to Merry Isle  I hold my course yet all the while  I am sideways glancing YOU.  Can this be land-lubber guile,  On your Sunshine Coast site?  .With beach to fore on sheltered. shore  Your buildings, church spire, white.  Land beacon to my go and come;  By tug, launch, steamer, plane.  Be short pr long the interval,  I do sidewise glance you- again.  A'  SECHELT, delightful sea resort,  Why do you oft renew  Past trips I've made by watercraft,  Or strolled your wood lanes through.  Saunter by trail to Porpoise Bay; ~  When by back-pack oft declare  'It evens my overplus to go by shank's mare.'  So oft iri line for tickets,  Once -again to visit where  The All Red Line and Union ships  (brought you for weekends or the day.  Amid full crowds for picnics, games. '  Yet tired as one oft would be,  A backward glance would cheer,  So many times before your sands, -  Your buildings white, the church spire  Would disappear.  But now my shoreward glance has gone.  By cars, by bus, by ferry, we go and come,  Arriid the hum of wheels.  No time to glance nor glance again,  What need, with church spire gone?  .Yet in my mind will be  Sechelt from afar,  Which first so fascinated me.  SECHELT, why is it you command  A second glance from me;  As you have commanded year on year  From Coastwise Seamanry.  These seawise glances will carry ori.  May your setting be as fair  On shore, as when, in passing by,  It was the Indian Church spire, white  which held my glancing eye.  TIMBER TRAIL RIDtKS CLUB  GYMKHANA  APRIL 16th  RIBBONS TO FOURTH  JUNIOR & SENIOR HI-POINT ROSETTE  Junior 50c for the day  Senior $1.00 Non-member $2.00  Information ��� 886-7553 or 886-7123  Consequently the basic relationship between income and  consumption is not. as strong,  ���and has varied widely over the  past few y^ars. At times, the  effect has been to offset the influence that governriierit econ- .  bmic policies were intended to  have.  For example/ although the  consumer provided the backbone to last year's economic recovery, personal spending lagged behind income by a considerable margin, and had individuals increased their "purchases at the same rate as their  income increase,- the effects  would have been to boost consumer expenditure by about $1  billion.  . Instead, the relatively strong  increase in income also manifested itself in one of the highest rates, of saving in the postwar period. In the past five  years the savings rate averag  ed  7.0%   of  after-tax incorne,  as opposed to only 4.3% in the  ^previous rfive-year period.  <X This rise dn,the*, savings rate  "is riot expected to continue and  may*, even decline as the-increasing number of young adults become engaged in the expensive undertaking of establishing their own households:  But at the same time, the bank  concludes/the rapid rise in incomes forecast for the present  decade would suggest ~a continuing increase in discretionary  purchasing power and hence,  the possibility of an even more  unpredictable consumer.     -  Blake C.

Recommendations made include:  The commercial zone (extending one block beyond the  roads department's area) seems  to meet the approval of the x  majority of ratepayers in the  area. This zone should be developed in a north, south direction and. restricted in the westerly     direction.

SPEEDY RHODODENDRONS  The growth pattern of rhododendrons may be drastically  changed   in   the  near  future.  Rhododendrons  are  flowering  evergreen  shrubs which  nor- y.  mally require  three or, more  years to attain bloom. Studies  at'the Canada Agriculture Sidney, B.C., Research Station are  :  underway to retard the growth ���*'  of the bush sufficiently to have  it reach maturity in a pot and  bloom within the first year of -  its life.

These lanes should be of sufficient width to accommodate  services and delivery and service vehicles. This commercial  zone should be restricted to  commercial and service industrial establishments with the  exclusion of any heavy industrial activities.  Residential II zone should  be allowed to extend into the  present rural holding zone as  development requires and more  easily serviced areas reach full  development. Residential II  zone should extend eventually  as far north as the new Gibsons bypass is located. Provision may be made for a commercial zone within the residential II zone in the Pratt,  Chaster road area. This commercial zone should be restricted to providing neighborhood services such as groceries, service stations etc. The  exact location of this zone  should, be dependent on private request.  Consideration should be given to multiple family developments such as condominiums,  garden apartments or low rise  apartments. This type of development would be well suited to  the area to the south of the  commercial zone.  Provision^ should be made for  park sites. The committee suggests that the board investigate the feasibility of obtaining  the north east quarter of lot  1314 for this purpose. This area  is presently used as a camping  ground for outdoor clubs and  is very suitable for this type  of activity.  FEDERAL N.D.P. CANDIDATE  Harry M.

POWELL RIVER ��� A paper-  maker, near retirement, speaks  as follows about the roles of  youth and age.  "Everybody's talking about  early retirement. Bring retirement age down from 65 to 60.  It's all wrong. We go at it backwards.  "The sensible way is to ensure that every Canadian between ages 20 and 30 isn't even  allowed to work. He's given all  the money he needs. Wine, women; song.  "On his thirtieth birthday,  you bring him back, chain him  to the workbench and keep  him there until he stops in his  tracks of old age, no matter  how long it takes. This way he  gets the best of both worlds.  "Instead of waiting for all  the good times he's going to  have when he retires, which he  will get too late to enjoy it, he  has all his fun while he's young  and healthy and can appreciate  it.  "All the rest of his life, instead of talking about' what  he'll do when he retires, he  can teli stories about what a  a>AST-CE_--CO-_N  heller of a guy he "was in his  twenties. All the stories he  tells will be true."  Twelve of us heard the pa-  perm aker say this and not one  was sure whether or not he  was serious.

Effie Wells recommends Kirk  Lake, Fred Johnson assures us  that it is too early for Kirk  Lake but that we should try  Spectacle Lake, because it's  higher and a better producer  at this time of year. Daryl John  son recommends Heisholt Lake  where people are said to be  catching landlocked salmon  which were poured into the  old quarry hole in the mistaken belief that they -were trout  fingerlings.  Is  there  more   advice?   Indeed there is. Al Dolman,  at  Gillies Bay, recommends that  we look for armor plated fish,  using the traditional clam gun,  kicking oysters but of the way  that we may find room to dig  for Littlenecks and Gooeyducks  Finally there is Bob, Jones of  the Esso station, celebrating his  25th year of matrimony with  Millie, who advises that fishing for salmon is a  waste of  time.  Even more  a waste of  time than usual, there being no  salmon to be caught.  Let us examine the value of  these various pieces of advice.  Bob Jones: 100 percent right.  Effie Wells: tested at 0 percent.  Fred Johnson: tested at 0 per  cent.  Daryl Johnson: untried and  therefore doubtful, despite a  rumor that a Newfoundland  schoolmaster caught something  with fins on it the day before.

Not because they are brighter than old people. In fact, they  suffer a serious handicap of  knowledge. Everybody who is  now old was once young, but  nobody who is now young -was  ever old, Despite this shortcoming, high school students  are better informed, more serious and bolder in their questioning than most audiences.  Whether it's the esoteric  question about international  law of the sea or the immediate and highly emotionally  charged questions about drugs,  sex and abortion, they come  quickly to the point.  The answers they get aren't  always as directly to the point  but that's one of the differences  between youth and age. Complexities are more visible with  age.

Nobody wears feathers and  scarcely any are in buckskin  vests. They are, for the most  part,' in their twenties or early  thirties. They speak loud and  clear, although sometimes with  the acid tones of bitter resentment.  What they had to say will be  reported in due course in resolutions and other papers. I  won't attempt to even summarize them here.  .-* What is-noticeable .to a parliamentarian is the attentive-  ness and the immense patience  of the delegates. Inmost meetings of 40 or more people, or- \  d.er is scantily maintained.  Members fall into conversation  with one another. They wander out for coffee and cakes.  They gather in knots at the  back of the meeting -room-and  discuss strategy, or the latest  jokes.  At Sechelt this does not happen. From 9:30 a.m. until 6 on  this Wednesday afternoon, with  only one and a quarter hours  for lunch, the delegates remain  fixed in their chairs, listening  and talking back.  These are people of a new.  generation of British Columbia  Indians who use phrases about  waters running to the sea and  the winds blowing only for ceremonial occasions.

After serving 22 years as Civil Defense Co-ordinator for  the Gibsons and Sunshine  Coast area, Capt. Wesley Hodgson of Sunnybank, South Fletcher Road, turned over his responsibilities to Donald Pye, retired RCMP sergeant and a  resident of Secret Cove area.  Col. R. Shanaman, Vancouver area co-ordinator, was on  hand last week in Gibsons to  supervise the take-over and  transfer of equipment and files  to Mr. Pye.  Capt. Hodgson in his long  term of civil defence service  organized and. taught classes in  first aid, and one group had  the satisfaction of seeing all  ten pupils qualify in St. John  Ambulance First Aid examinations. Wes, ah old soldier of  tfwo World Wars, (took special  "courses at Civil Defence Col-  -, lege, Arnprior, and Ottawa in  1955-56-57 aind two additional  courses at Victoria College.  It was due to his untiring  efforts that Civil Defence in  this area was brought to such  a high state of efficiency with  the co-ordination of all contributing elements, .r_^po_*ta,  tion maintained by the local  details of RCMP.; medical aid,  instruction in St. John Ambulance   methods   in   first   aid,  stock-piling of a complete 20-  bed emergency hospital unit  at St. Mary's Hospital, construction of Dutch field ovens  capable of supplying bread rations to the whole area for a  month, and communications,  two-way short- wave radio to  CD Headquarters, Vancouver,  (now dispensed With in favor  of direct telephone service).  Capt. Hodgson leaves his  command in good hand's. His  successor, Donald Pye, is a retired RCMP sergeant with .25  years police service, first with  the B.C. Territorial, which incidentally pre - dates the  RNWMP by at least two years,  then with the RCMP, along  with the late C. W. Harvison,  Commissioner (rtd) author of  The Horsemen. Another contemporary on the. force ."was  Cpl. Biggeman; who served,  along with Sgt. Pye in Vancouver.  Donald Pye served his complete term with the RCMP  throughout British Columbia,  where he was stationed in  practically every area, both  coastal and interior. He also  has had 30 years in the St.  John Ambulance Corps as instructor and now invested with  the rank of Commander of that  order.

Today, the average salary of our teachers is $11,102 per  year, with generous holidays and fringe benefits. They are  the highest paid teachers in Canada.  With a 6V_% annual increase, compounded, our teachers  will double their present good salaries in ten years.  Does this sound "unfair" to you?  Because of good salaries and excellent fringe benefits, British Columbia  has been fortunate in attracting the best qualified teachers in the country.  Our province has the highest percentage of teachers with a university  degree of any province In Canada.  GOVERNMENT OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION  Hon. D. L. Brothers, Q.C, Minister of Education  ��� ���/O  CONSUMERP*^^  51.4%  1971 Coast News, April 12, 1972  -'��� \Two $250 scholarships are  offered annually to students  attending Elphinstone Secondary School, by the Howe Sound  Pulp Division of Canadian Forest Products Ltd., Port Mellon.  The scholarships are part of a  continuing prograan uhdertak-  eri by the company to emphasize the need for highly trained  personnel in their mill operations.  One scholarship will be offered to a student entering the  B.C. Institute of Technology  and the other to a student plan  on airport costs  Gibsons - Sechelt Municipal  Airport was again brought forward at Sechelt's council meeting last week when Aid. Norman Watson reported on discussion that has taken place.  between counciils. It was suggested in view of the fact the  airport concerned the entire  ��� Sunshine Coast that the Regional board should be asked  to take part in financing.  Main problem of the airport  is that it should have a power  supply and be paved as the  landing of tricycle landing  gear planes i_j a haphazard event. It was pointed put that the  federal government covered  the paving of the Bella Coola,  airport. Mayor Ben Lang offered the opinion that the airport might be. good for Canada but it was a costly expense  for two municipalities.  Aid. Watson reported that  W. H. Esterbrook, airport chair  man hoped that the Elphinstone Flying club couid sublease the airfield arid get financial support to help out.  ning to enter the faculties of  science or engineering at any  university in British Columbia.  Recipients   of   the   scholarships   will   be   selected  by   a  committee made up of representatives of Canadian Forest  Products   Ltd.,   Howe   Sound  Pulp Diviison and JElphiristone  Secondary school. The committee    will   consider    academic  standing,   attitude   and   Work  throughout   secondary   school  and  student's  interest  in the  fields  of  science,  engineering  or technology.  Applicants will not be required to write the department  of education examination for  scholarship to qualify for the  Canfor scholarships. Application forms will be available  from school counsellors, and  must be submitted by June 15.

There is a Teacher-Trustee Liaison committee  whose function is to deal with  the matters of mutual concern  which Mrs. Douglas would  seem to want settled, by "heads  of state."        '  A letter from Mrs. Douglas  to the chairman of the School  Board was not acknowledged  as the letter indicated it was  an expression of her own ambitions. There was no reference to her executive committee, which has a secretary to  attend to correspondence, and  for reasons of her own the Liaison committee was not mentioned. Incidentally, the board  members of the Liaison committee have never refused to  meet ^with-their teacher co-..  members. The avenues of'corn-'  munication are there but r.:.  overbearing and dogmatic approach will not achieve the  harmony Mrs. Douglas professes to want. It is suggested she  put her own house in order before condemning the chairman  .of the school board.  There can be no quarrel with  her statement to the effect that  it is unproductive to engage in  verbal fisticuffs and I regret it  is necessary to correctly state  the facts.���B. F.

Q. I was in a car accident  and badly hurt and the driver  of- the other car was entirely  to blame. I started bargaining  with the other driver's insurance company and after a lot  of letters, doctors' reports and  phone calls, back and forth,  they didn't offer me what I  thought I was entitled to so I  went to a lawyer and he issued  a summons, and he started bargaining with the insurance  company's lawyers. He got me  more money than I was offered and, I guess, all that I was  entitled to. This is fine but  then the lawyer took off his  percentage fee and I actually  wound up with less than if I  had taken what the insurance  company offered me in the first  place. Can the lawyer do this?  Doesn't the insurance company  have io pay my lawyer?  A.   This is a tough one. The  lawyer is entitled  to his fee.  We  would have to  see your  lawyer's statement  to  you to  fully advise you but we assume  his percentage charge was not  exorbitant.   We  presume   several thousand dollars were inr  volved. For a matter like this  you should consult a lawyer at  the outset and let him handle  the whole thing. No,  the defendant does. not have' to pay  your lawyer's fees. They have  to pay the costs of the case but  if the only thing that was done  was the issuance of a summons  this would be a very small figure and is doubtless included  in  the overall settlement  figure.  Q. I had a lawyer to handle  the purchase of a house for  me. His bill yas $163.75. The  price of the house was $19,500.  I thought lawyers could only  charge 1% of the first $2,500  plus Vz% of the next $12,500,  plus V4% of the balance ���  which would be $98.75. There  was a mortgage to take off.  Wasn't I overcharged?  A.   The $163.75 figure would  include    Land    Registry    fees  which the lawyer must pay to.  the Land Registry Office. We  compute the bill as follows:  FEES:  1% of the first $2,500 $25.00  3/_ % of the next $12,500 62.50  y4% of the next $4,500* 11.25  Value of land $19,500       $98.75  TYPEWRITER REPAIRS  TYPEWRITER REPAIRS  & SERVICE  Agent for Hermes Typewriters.

Q. I bought a house" by  agreement for sale for $18,000  and paid monthly payments of  $87.50 for a number of years.  The agreement provided I  could pay off at any itme. I  did so and there was $6,546.18  owing, including interest, at  the time.  I went to a lawyer to get it  done right and he asked me the  present ��� market value of the  house and .1 told him. it was  wor^th about $33,000. He charged me $41.67 plus Land Registry fees. I have heard that lawyers can only charge % of the  percentage   scale   allowed,   in  these' cases,   which  would  be  $15.08.   The   deed   showed   a  value of $1.00. I don't understand  the  whole  deal.  Is  his  fee correct? What has the present   market   value   got   to   do  with it?  A. Yes, the fee is correct.  Your figure of $15.08 is based  on the $6,546.18 which means  nothing. What if you only had  the last $87.50 monthly payment to make? By your method of reckoning the fee would  only be 29c Obviously, no lawyer would charge this. The legal and the Land Registry fees  are based on the market value  at the time the deed was signed. It makes no difference if  the deed shows $18,000, $6,546.-  18, or $1.00. Other Land Registry documents must show the  $33,000. We compute his fee  correctly, as follows:  1% of the first $2,500 $25.00  Vz% of the next $12,500 62.50  y4 % of the next $15,000 37.50  Value of land $33,000 $125.00  % of $125.00 $41.67  LEGAL  NOTICE OF INTENTION  TO APPLY FOR A  DISPOSITION  OF CROWN LAND  In Land Recording District  of Vancouver, B.C. and situated at Gibsons, B.C.
