 victoria,  B���  c.  Published at Gibson*, B.C.  Phone 836-2622  Volume 25  Number 12, March 22, 1972.  10c per copy  revam  Succession duty changes are  announced in the second reading in the legislature of a bill  covering the proposed changes.  These changes, as reported  from the office of Premier  Bennetth follow:  The government believes a  broad base for taxation is the  most suitable method to raise  funds necessary to carry out  essential services provided by  government. XLi _ considers that  succession duties must form a  part of this base in respect of  our. more wealthy citizens, but  that exemptions be provided of  sufficient worth to eliminate  that vast" majority of our citizens from having to pay any  succession duties - whatsoever.  Accordingly, this bill raises the  basic succession duty exemption for special beneficiaries  (husband, wife, father, mother,  grandfather, grandmother,  child, grandchild, son-in-law,  daughter-in-law) from $60,000  to a mininiu-n of $150,000.  Including the measures contained in this bill, the following are the main exemptions  -how provided, for example, for  a spouse:    ~  (1) An outright exemption  of $125,000.  (2) An additional exemption of the value of the family  home.  (3) An additional exemption of up to $25,000 of life insurance.   _  (4)" Ari: add-tto-iaP exemption of up to $250 a month pen-  sion.  (5) An exemption in any  event of at least $150,000.  !'��� This means a husband could  leave a $40,000 home; $25,000  ihsurance, other properties to  the value of $125,000 and $250  a month pension to his spouse,  which, if she were aged 60,  would be valued at $33,832.50,  or a total estate of $223,832.50  and no British Columbia succession duty would be payable.  A mihiTniuriY $150,000 exemption is proposed to apply for  bequests to special beneficiar-  Mayor Ben Lang intends to  bring the matter of .Sechelt's  sewage situation to the attention of the Regional District  board.  He said so when Aid. Norman Watson, chairman _of Sechelt's sewage committee outlined the work he had done so  far and ottered the proposition  that perhaps the sewage plan  should, not be confined; to.- Sechelt but could extend as far  as Wilson Creek.  The federal government has  decided that Environment Min  ister Jack Davis will take over  responsibility for most  small  boat harbors in Canada.  The minister has stated he  intends to work out new policies and financing of pleasure  boat marinas and fishermen's  wharves. The new system,  which he hopes to introduce  next year, will see the elimination of wharfage fees for  commercial fishermen.  Paul St. Pierre, M.P., Coast  Chiicotin, who has been opposed to the "hodgepodge arrangement" in small boat harbors in B.C., said "It's a long  step in the right direction. Fish  eries and environment department is the natural agency for  control of these harbors."  He said the list of harbors  to be transferred to Environment department and kept with  ies. Any portion up to $25,000  of the minimum $150,000 exemption not used by the above  preferred beneficiaries is to be  allowed for exemption of bequests to a brother or sister of  the deceased. It is, therefore,  apparent that most beneficiaries of estates in British Columbia will be exempt from succession duty.  The government further  wishes to assist a family to  carry on operation of a family-  owned farm or business and is,  therefore, introducing a provision to give the family a 10-  year interest-free period to pay  . any succession duty which may  be due on the passing of the  farm or business to them.  Other amendments to the act  are proposed to bring'it generally into conformity with the  provisions of the common succession duty act being introduced in most of the other provinces. These amendments provide:  .IV Property outside the province left to a beneficiary in  the province is to be subject to  duty less any duty paid to a  co-operating province.  2. In the case of a company  controlled by the deceased,  clarification of* the valuation  to be applied to shares and to  debts and .dispositions when  passing to a person connected  to the deceased by a blood relationship, marriage or adoption..     i:y. .-.:?���_,-'_>- ,*--^.  3. In the cases of quick succession, provides for a reduction in valuation of from 10%  to 50% on property on which  duty has been paid under this  act if it passes again within ;  five years. ':: .XX.[.X  4. Proposes a reduction, in  duty payable when a bequest  was a gift on which gift tax  had been paid.  The statement added that,  members will! recall that, on  top of the generous exemptions  provided, the British Columbia  succession duty rates are low.  For example, for a close relative, after exemptions, on the  first $50,000 of dutiable value  the rate ranges from 3% to 8%  There is no revision of these  low rates proposed to take up  the 25% of the estate tax field  dropped by the federal government. ,  The government is aware  that the thrifty, industrious  and prudent citizens of our society need encouragement to  continue their contribution to  the economy of the province.  British Columbia succession du  ties will, therefore, only apply  to the very large estates as the  basic exemptions outlined  above will eliminate most bene  ficiaries.  Department of Transport will  be issued soon. "In the case  of Powell River, which is>ad-.  ministered by the municipality,  it is obvious that fisheries and  pleasure boats are the main  users in this area."  "If fees for commercial fishermen's wharfage are to be removed, the minister agrees  there would have to be some  system of compensatory payment to the municipal authority." He said Mr. Davis did not  intend to remove fishing boats'  fees for water, light and similar services.  "As for charges on pleasure  boats, I believe an annual license fee which gave thie boats  entry to all government marina wharfage as well as building up capital funds might be  the best solution. An alternative, which 1 could spread the  load evenly, could be a tax  upon sports boat fuel."  THOMAS  GEDDES  PRATT  the newly appointed manager  of Elphinstone Co-op Store in  Gibsons. He is a registered judo-  black   belt   holder   and   also  likes hunting and fishing. He  comes to Gibsons after holding  positions with the federal and,  provincial governments as si��f  p erintendent of stores. He has  also   been   employed   by   the,  Safeway and Super Valu ofr:;  ganizations.

His father  was manager of a Safeway  store 35 years. An uncle is now  working with Safeway.  Sechelt's May  Day finished  Sechelt's May Day > is now a  thing of the past now that  Mayor Ben Lang has found  the response for its coiitinuance  to be negligible;        ;  He said this at last week's  meeting of council when he  said it might as well become  official that council forgoes  May Day for this year.  For the past five years the  Lions club has sponsored the  event. This year the club decided to drop the sponsorship  yet still be willing to help. As  no other organization decided  to take it over, after a couple  of public meetings had been  called, council decided to drop  the celebration.  comes  step  re-  Hon. Isabel P. Dawson  ports the new Manpower Committee, : announced recently by  Hon. Ralph Loffmark, minister  of health services and hospital  insurance, has been instructed  to visit Pender Harbour area  as soon as possible, with a  view towards establishing a  clinic in that area.  They will meet with the people of the area, the medical  profession, and other interested parties.  Pender Harbour people aided  by Director J. H. Tyner of the  Regional Hospital board have  been working on this idea for  the last two years almost, and  achieved nothing worthwhile t  until they induced Health Minister Loffmark to visit the area ;  and talk over the project at a  meeting.  Since then the proposal has  crept closer and closer until  now a committee will ;visit the  area for an on the spot look at  the clinic idea.  STILL  TO   COME!  It is still to come! St. Bart's r  W.A. will hold its bake and  ���rummage sale on Friday, May  26 in the church hall. So mark  your calendar to keep this date  open so you can enjoy this  bake and rummage sale.  Hon. Isabel Dawson reports  during a recent meeting with  Mr. M. Aldoiis, general manager of British Columbia Ferries, she brought to the attention of Mr. Aldous the difficulty of turning on tapis in  washrooms on the Sunshine  Coast Queen and also recom-  -mended1 that the black .seat on  toilets be replaced with white  ones as on other ferries.  While the Langdale problem  of carrying hand baggage has  to some extent been eliminated  cars ( being able to drive passengers with baggage through  terminal, need for baggage  service at Langdale for those  who have not cars needs to be  considered, both at Langdale  and Horseshoe Bay.  Mrs. Dawson again discussed the lack of an elevator in  the ferry. Structure of the ferry does not allow for an elevator to be built and she was  . informed that companies who  build escalators would not  guarantee them on such ferries due to motion of the vessel which could put escalators  out of commission. As a result  Mrs. Dawson recommended if  nothing could be done, consideration be given to the installation of washrooms on the car  deck.  Mrs. Dawson also discussed  the need of a later ferry to and  from Horseshoe Bay. She recommended .such a service be  given consideration on a trial  basis on weekends. Such a service would enable people from  the ���Sunshine Coast to travel  to Vancouver, enjoy hockey  games, the theatre and still return the same evening. It would  also allow those travelling  from Powell River to take the  7:30 p.m. ferry and arrive in  Vancouver the same evening.  Another point she requested  was for cups and saucers to be  made available for those wishing same��� as she said, while  one might drink coffee out of  a plastic-type cup, drinking tea  was certainly anything but enjoyable.  Again, she brought to the attention of Mr. Aldous the requests of commuters who ha_J  homes on the Peninsula and  Savary Island, who although  not permanent residents felt  they should be included in the  commuter program-  Mrs. Dawson expects to have -  a report on these problems in  the near future.  Glean-up, Paint-up!  Gibsons and Sechelt municipal councils aided by the Cham  bers of Commerce of both villages plus service clubs will  take part in a Clean-Up Paint-  Up week, April 16 to 22.  Details are being worked out  so as to get the full benefit of  the week. There will be arrangements for the removal of  heavy refuse and the old age  folk will have Scouts and Girl  Guides to assist them.  Both mayors have placed emphasis on the paint-up part' of  the week. Most people will do  whatever cleaning up is necessary but there are some who  should do some paint jobs  around their premises.  What is the C of G?  Sponsors sought  411  The Thursday night Young  People's group will hold a  Starve-In April 1 to raise money for the Primate's World Relief Fund.  What is a Starve-In? Its purpose is to raise funds: Hopefully each student will obtain several sponsors. As an example,  if you would sponsor someone  at 100 an hour for the 24 hour  fast, your donation would be  $2.40. During the coming weeks  people will be asked to sign  pledges and agree to sponsor  students for a specified amount  per hour.  All those taking part in this  Starve-In   will   gather   at   St.  Bartholomew's Church Hall at  8 a.m. April 1 to begin the 24  hour    fast. For   the   next   24  hovrs, a variety of events such  as listening to and studying the  rock opera Jesus Christ, Superstar;    games    ,activities    and  Singing; speakers from various  churches possibly, and learning  more about people in underdeveloped countries, are planned^  The conclusion  of  this  event  will he a service of celebration  Easter morning at St. Bartholomew's. This is a youth service  which the  young  people are  planning and working on them  selves.  If you could offer assistance  with this project, please phone  Barbara Valancius at 886-2157.  -Dick Dalton, manager of the  British Columbia Chambers of  Commerce,, told members of  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce at a Cedars Inn  dinner meetihg Monday night  ���just what ay chamber-of-. cotti-  merce means to a commuinty.  He said that your community is different from every other  community. It has its own special resources, its own advantages and its own peculiar  problems.  Therefore, your chamber of  commerce is different from every other chamber. At the same  time, your chamber of commerce, as an organization,^has  certain things in common with  every other community chamber.  To be effective in its work,  every community chamber, regardless of size or location,  must be properly organized. It  must be adequately manned,  equipped and financed.  To be effective, every community chamber must be set  up to take the initiative, to exercise leadership, to determine  what needs to be done for the  good of business and for the  good of the community and  the country. Every chamber  must have a well-balanced program of work, and must be  prepared to plan, to follow;  through, to take action ��� and  to accomplish objectives.  He depicted, the national and  international aspects of chamber work. There were 859  chambers of commerce in Canada who speak federally for all  the members. Top-ranking men  and women form the executives of the local branches as  well as the national executive.  Numerous federal committees  were at work on a multiplicity  of problems and they have  been or will be placed before  Roberts Creek Scouts on job  Nineteen attended the special re-organization meeting for  1st Roberts Creek Cub and  Scout Group Committee on  March 16 at Roberts Creek  Community Hall.  Sunshine Coast District President Ivan Smith and Regional  Field Executive Jack Adair  covered the plans for the future and introduced the new  executive who are: Chairman,  Dave Parry; secretary Mrs. I.

Boys 8 to 10 years wishing to  join Cubs should be at the  Community Hall, Roberts  Creek, on Wednesdays at 6:30  p.m. Scouts meet the same evening at 7.30 p.m. Scouts are  boys 11 to 14 years of age.

Then there were the Canada  Commonwealth      Coinmittee,  Canada and the United Kingdom   committee   working   on  :tradeyipattersj^the Canada and  United States committee which  confers with the United States  counterpart   of   chambers   of  commerce. There are also committees working on the Japanese  situation and the Pacific  Basin problems and all of then-  are active in their varied fields.  The International Chambers  of Commerce covers 60 countries   and  has   a  considerable  amount of influence.  Getting down to the grass  roots chambers he said that the  provincial executive would like  to hear from the Gibsons executive. There were 130 chambers in British Columbia and  the problems they present are  taken up with officials of government in Victoria. v Gibsons  chamber should make its voice  heard, he added.  Mike Blaney, president,  thanked Mr. Dalton for his talk  and added that one of the  things he was interested in obtaining was a UBC planning  council study of this area to  find out what should be adopted, keeping in mind that this  was fundamentally a recreation area.  Other matters discussed were  a Canadian chamber question  whether Dominion Day should  be changed in name and also-,  its date; the boat launching  problem was awaiting Gibsons  planners' report and the Easter Egg hunt set for Easter Sim  day afternoon at the Trailer  court by the S Turn. The Mainland Southwest brochure was  progressing well.  Members decided to turn  over to chamber funds the $163  left over in the sign account.  As a result it was decided by  vote that the chamber would  leave the sign at the Langdale  ferry entrance and not move it  to a higher position.

Oops! Sorry! Mr. Mayor!  The following letter was written recently by Mayor Ben  Lang to the chairman of the Regional District board. As the  '   letter explains itself no introduction is needed. Here is what  he wrote.  Dear Sir: It was with interest and surprise that I  learned Mayor Peterson of Gibsons was not appointed  to the Regional Board's Planning Committee. I understand that you made a statement to the effect that it  was Sechelt's turn this time. This seems to me a bit absurd. How, in any way, could my appointment to the  Planning Committee take the place of an appointment  from Gibsons Council?  Granted the whole Sunshine Coast is trying to be a  functional unit, but the two villages have their own  plans and. problems which must be taken into consideration by the Regional Board. There is no way in which  I, as representative on the Planning Committee for Sechelt can take the place of .Gibsons' Village representative. For the general welfare of the Regional Board and  the Village of Gibsons I suggest the Planning Committee Chairman and yourself give serious thought to Gibsons representation on the Planning Committee  ���Yours truly, Ben J. Lang.  This  letter  will  come before  the  Regional Board  at  its  March 30 meeting.  Here is what the Coast News editor wrote at the Gibsons  council meeting where the letter was read.  "A protest from Mayor Ben Lang over his appointment to the Regional Board's planning committee came  before Gibsons council Tuesday night. Mayor Lang  maintained his appointment was absurd as he knew  nothing about planning. He said this in a letter to the  Regional Board chairman, a copy of which he sent to  Gibsons council.  "He thought it a bit absurd that he should ibe on  the Regional planning board. In no way could he take  the place of Gibsons mayor and serious! thought should  be given to replacing him.  Mayor Lang did not like the Coast News interpretation of  that letter and said so in no uncertain terms at the meeting of  Sechelt's council. March 15.  Having lived close to the events which resulted in this letter being written perhaps the editor can be forgiven for misinterpreting the statement from, the letter which reads: "There  is no way in which I, as representative on the Planning Committee can take the place of Gibsons village representative."  There lurked in the editor's mind the idea that Mayor Lang  lacked, the experience of being a planner to the extent he should  ibe on that board. The thought was the result of previous general discussion which is difficult to pinpoint.  It falls in the same category as the remark which the Coast  News attributed to Chairman Harry Almond of the Regional  board at the Feb. 24 board meeting, that it was Sechelt's turn  to be on the board. The chairman denies having said this but  as there were quite a few remarks passed simultaneously on  this point at the Regional board meeting, it was quite possible  that the wrong person was chosen.  However, Mayor Lang in his remarks at Sechelt's council  meeting complimented the Coast News editor on his past performance in reporting and regretted that a lapse had occurred.  As the meeting at which the letter was read fell on a Tuesday night, the editor prepared his copy of the meeting on the  spot as there was insufficient time to obtain a copy of the letter. Oh the other hand he thought he had expressed the sentiment of the letter in a reasonable manner, so therefore did not  need a copy.  For the misinterpretation of your letter Mayor Lang, the  Coast News editor admits he erred. As the editor did not have  the chance to make an explanation at the meeting, it is presented editorially.  5-10-20 years ago  15 YEARS AGO  Elphinstone Aero club has  obtained land for an * airport  in Wilson Creek area through  the provincial lands department.

One with the traditional gold-knobbed candy-  striped-pole, standing outside  the door?  Inside, positioned in front of  an array of bottles, tools of the  trade and a shelf for the personalized, name embossed shaving mugs for regular customers  stands the barber. Across his  fancy weskit, an old. fashioned  gold watch and chain, flanked  by exposed galluses. He waits .  behind his swivel chair, ready  to shear you.  Here you were sure to find a  welcome haven, out and away  from the _work-a-day world- Of  course it was back in the days  when no self-respecting tonsor-  ial parlor "was complete without at least one highly-burnished brass spittoon and girly calendars on the wall, not nearly  as nudey as the pin-ups of today, also an array of well-  thumbed familiar but forbidden pink-covered Police Gazettes, the Playboy Magazine of  its day.  I well recall that day years  ago, back in Winnipeg when I  made my first enforced visit to  this wonderful realm of masculinity. In fact, I was practically yanked into the neighborhood barber shop, screeching  like a bob-cat, by a long suffering father who had finally put  his foot down, declaring it was  high time my shoulder-length  flaxen curls, yearned over by  my mother, were clipped once  and for all ��� arid that was  that!  This was OK by me, as up to  this point, life was a long series of running fights with the  mayhem bent neighborhood  kids, and we had some real  tough ones around our place in  Fort Rouge. One gang in particular was led by the ferocious Ade Johnston, brother of  the redoubtable all-time hockey hero of his day, Iron-man  Ching Johnson.  Every time I showed, my cur-.  ly locks outdoors, these hellions  practically went berserk, chased me through back lanes, and  literally beat hell out of me,  sending me home with a bloody  nose and sundry abrasions, my  battered buster brown left lying in the gutter and lace-collared Lord Fauntleroy suit  hanging in. mud - splattered  shreds.  My father was dead right ��� .  it was high time I joined the  bifurcated, polls of the neighborhood hooligans, despite the  tearful distress of my mother,  God bless her.  So, into the shop we went.  The barber had evidently been  through the procedure of the  ifirst hair cut many times. He  hoisted me onto the jump seat,  a board placed across the arms  of the grownups chair, and under the watchful eye of my  parent the sharp shears soon  parted me forever from my  golden locks. There on the floor  they lay in mournful disarray,  before being swept into final  oblivion.  That was back in 1910 in the  easier going pre-World War  One day. Then the slang Shave  and a haircut, two bits, meant  just that!.  A bit later, in the company  of some older companions, we  ventured downtown, a strictly  off-limit area. Below the City  Hall to: the CPR subway, Main  St. was lined on both sides with  lurid honky-tonk fun palaces  and shooting and peep-snow  galleries, fronted by 'alluring  ladies' plying a brisk trade of  hustling the rubes into their  cribs behind those drawn curtains at the rear.  We didn't have much success  in storming these sinful citadels, quickly discouraged by  the taunts from Les Gals who  jeeringly turned us away with  "Scram kids, beat it ��� and  don't come back 'til you can  spit over your chins." We were  a bit let down at this reception, so we turned off the main  stem onto Rupert Street, where  conveniently located across  from the old Police Station we  spied a barber shop, pole and  all. The sign read Lady (Barbers in Attendance, so, putting  up a brave front, in we trooped. Here the reception was  much better and the gals cordial to say the least. While two  of our number climbed into, the  waiting chairs, the rest of us  occupied ourselves _ by piffling  through the Police ���Gazettes or  snooping behind the drawn cur-,  tains at the rear of the shop.  That did it! The lady barbers  ganged up on us and we landed out in the street in short  order.  Many years later, while on  the police court beat for the  Winnipeg Free Press, I had a  yen to return to that lady's  barber shop, ostensibly to pick  up a bit of O Henry atmosphere. This time I was again  most courteously treated and  received an excellent haircut,  but no excursion behind those  drawn curtains!  It must have been nostalgia  that took me into. Jerry Dixon's  excellent place of business the  other day on one of my now all  too-infrequent visits ($2.50  haircuts are a bit rich for my  greatly diminished pension income.)  I no sooner stepped into the  shop, when there before me  was the spitting image of an  honest-to-god old time barber,  tall, spare, with greying hair,  and a bachelor. Bob (short for  Robert) Johnson, master barer, filling in for Jerry Dixon,  the proprietor. Dob, standing  tall behind his chair, ready to  serve me, a quiet man, very  much the kindly philosopher  type, and. truly one of the vanishing breed of hair clippers.  I lost no time in breaking  through his professional code  jof self-imposed silence. We  were soon comparing notes on  what had happened to barber-  ing as we knew it during the  past half century.  To say,that Dob Johnson is  knowledgeable, is to put it  mildly. He told me he first  got into the t^ade at the end  of the war. Born in Portage la  Prairie, Man., Dob came out  to the coast as a young man  and first practised his trade in  Vancouver, later Burnaby then  Coquitlam. _\ natural liking  for people, plus what he termed : an  incurably lazy   nature  prompted him to take up bar-  bering. He found there is a  lot to be said for a job iri which  the customers have to come to  you and one that can be performed with the least possible  exertion. So Dob became- a barber and as the years were to  prove, a damn good one, a credit to his profession. To him  customers are all alike. However, there are two. types he  can't abide, one, the drunk, the  second the type of customer  who is always in a tearing rush.  As for the customer that  calls for the works, he still  gets the odd one, mainly log-  . gers, who, when they come out  of the bush, plank themselves ,  down and go for the shave,  haircut,massage, shampoo com  plete with steaming hot towels.  As . for shaving generally, the  advent of the electric razor and  home-applied lotions, has made  this part of the business all but  a lost cause.  On the escalated price of a  hair cut, currently $2.50 Johnson is quick to point out, with  male vanity what it is, price  really means nothing today.  Besides, today's standard rate  is barely in line with the soaring cost of living. Sure, haircuts used to be 50c before  World War Two, then 75c and  ���a dollar. At the end of World  War Two the price slid up to  $1 and $1.50 .with a final hop  to $2.50, its present peg. Freak  haircuts at $1.25 per head flourished among the swingers of  the 50s, the era of the crewcut,  the duckbill and the Indian  scalp lock.  Dob finds standing six hours  a day, five days a week, along  with all the arm and finger exercise is no chore providing  you are fit and healthy.  Commenting on the very few  teenage youngsters who come  to him, he is surprised at their  sharpness and intelligence. Nor  does their outspoken brashness  bother him in the least. "All  you need to handle the young  uns is a bit of patience and the  lability to set aside the experience of your own years and  see it their way for a change."  ''Barbering today," he claims,  "is reduced to an all-time low.  Only the very young and the  iover-40s come in to his shop  these days. A good 70% of the  male population, the long hairs,  the personality cuts and the  mutton-choppers, never see the  inside of an hcnest-to-goodness  barber shop.

The revenue picture in  our province is vastly changed,  yet this present government  still imposes property taxation  on the Citizens of B.C. for a  myriad of services including  education.

COAST NEWS WANT ADS ARE REAL SALESMEN  Flower strains improved  (By A. R. BUCKLEY,  Plant Research institute,  y      Ottawa)  In the past decade there has  arisen a new method of producing strains that are uniform  in growth, habit and flower color  when grown from seeds. By this  method, two of these inbred  strains are selected as parents  and crossed under rigid conditions that ensure that no accidental setting or crossing takes  place.  The resulting seeds of the first  cross of any two plants are  known in genetic terms as the  Fl (first filial) generation. The  symbol Fl is used1 by seedsmen  foir good cultivars and strains  produced by this first cross-hig  of selected strains.  Self-pollinating, these Fl hybrids result in what is known as  the F2 generation, and in a few  rare cases these also have resulted in superior strains. Us-  ualy, however, F2 plants are  very variable. Selfipollinating  has occasionally produced an  F3 generation that breeds true  from seed.  Because seeds produced on Fl  hybrids  seldom   come  true to  type, Fls can be obtained only  by repeating the same. original  cross. This, of course, involves  a great deal of meticulous care  and expense. Fl seeds, then, aire  costly to develop and are sold at  a much higher price than those  obtained in the usual way. The  increased plant  vigor,   size of  (bloom,   compactness,   and   the  quality   of  flowers   and  vegetables makes the purchase of  these hybrids very worthwhile.  P-turiias  are   classic   examples of the Fl hybrid art as it  applies   to   ornamental   plants.  Hybrid corn is the standard example for vegetables. The first  Fl plants grown for their flowers were petunias.  Before the  Second World War, we were obtaining each year from Japan  seeds of doubles-lowered petunias that produced only double  flowers.  At that time, nobody in the  western world was able to segregate the parents necessary for  the production of double Fl hybrids. It was not until after the  war that F. Simonet of Edmonton, Alberta, suoceedd in isolating parents that, when crossed,  j \bur v  M litter .V  is just as dirty  as anybody  v else's  Be sure to use a  litter container  allTdOuible progeny,  resulted in the All-  double    petunias  would give  His efffarts  Canadian  strains.  The Fl symbol, when appended to double-flowering types, in-  dlUcates that they will not come  truly double from seeds, but will  produce flowers of the same  colors, or combinations of colors, with uniform growth. So we  ors, with uniform growth. So we  both the major classes of petunias, the 'Grand-flora' class and  the, 'Multifloira' class.  (From the glorious double petunias, the breeders turned to  the single types. Many inbred  strains of these such as Fire  Chief, Celestial Rose, Rosy  Morn and Rose of Heaven were  already well established in catalogues. However these were  gradually deteriorating and few  could foe relied on to produce  consistently uniform color and  growth.  The Fl hybrids of many other  groups of annuals are now available. For example, with snapdragons the famed Rocket strain  was the first; this has now been  followed by the Topper, Floral  Carpet, Bright Butterflies, Little  Darling and Madame Butterfly  strains. .  The radiant, large flowers of  the Majestic strain of pansies,  the neat mound-like, dwarf fibrous begonias in all color ranges, the fi-e-flcwering compact  First Lady marigolds, the Elfin  series of _n.pat.eiis and the new  hybrid cactus-flowered Carved  Ivory zinnia are all many excellent examples of annual Fl hybrids..    ���-.:���. . ,\.-y. ���:;-..--  If you want reliable seed that  will give you uniform, florifer-  ous annuals, start with the selected Fl hybrids.

"Full employment legislation now."  Unemployment is a serious  problem in Canada, more serious than in most of the developed or semi-developed nations.  Not only is it serious, I see  it as a continuing problem over  many years. It is one which  should concern the Canadians  who are working as well as  those Who are not.  Almost everybody wants to  earn his own living and feel  that he's productive. The number of bums who are seeking  ways of avoiding work is, I am  convinced, far fewer than  some critics of the welfare system believe.  What is this problem in perspective.  First, the situation:  Canada faces < a dangerous  potential in unemployment.  According to some estimates,  the increase in our labor force  between 1965 and 1985 will  equal the entire labor force of  Sweden. It will equal the combined increases of all the labor  forces ' of 'Britain, West Germany and Italy.  Two factors influence this  matter. One is the flood of  Canadians from the immediate  postwar birth' surge which are  now on the labor market. This  was unusually high. Another  is  the  movement  of  married  �����AST-CmLOOTlN  women into the labor force.  Canada has traditionally had a  low percentage of working  wives, by the standards of the  so-called Top Ten nations of  the western world. This is  changing. >  Those are the glummer aspects.  There are positive aspects.  Our rate of employment is also  increasing at an almost unprecedented rate. Between 1965  and 1970, the last period for  which full statistics are available, more than one million  new jobs were created in Canada.  This was an immense accomplishment by Canadian industry assisted-by various governments.  During the years 1960 to  1970, the rate of growth of new  jobs in this country was four  times that of France, almost  six times that of Britain and  nine times that of West Germany.  These figures are, however,  of scant comfort to those who  have been trying to get jobs  and cari't.  There's no doubt that we  must continue to create more  jobs and at an even faster rate.  Recognizing this, the federal  government last fall launched,  in addition to ongoing programs such as those administered by the department of regional economic expansion, a  $548 million special employment plan to boost employment *  this winter and in the months  to come.

In addition, because in percentage terms the greatest rate  of unemployment is among pur  young people, the government  has announced that $85 million  will be spent this summer in  a multi-department program to  encourage creative and useful  student employment and. activities.  The cards which I am receiving from concerned citizens  about a full employment budget are unclear as to what a  full employment budget is.  Possibly what is suggested is  that the government should  adopt a policy of assuming that  everyone in the work force of  the country is working and will  be paying, income taxes that  would swell the government's  coffers. The government could  then spend as if it were receiving money which, in fact, it is  not.  This may be an idea imported from the U.S. If so, we  should examine the U.S. record  In  the  last fiscal  year  the  U.S. ran up 30 billion dollars  in deficits. This year the deficit will be about $38 billion, a  deficit of. such size that the  current Time magazine features the question "Is Uncle  Sam Broke?"  There is nothing wrong with  deficit spending if it produces  results. Unfortunately, this is  not the case in the United  States. Despite this staggering  amount of government spending unemployment there remains at its traditional level  in comparison with Canada's  ��� about one percent lower.  (This is the usual path of U:S.-  Canadian unemployment figures.)  Inflation, the process , which  systematically robs the older  people on fixed incomes, remains higher in the United  States than here. In fact, Canada's rate of inflation is one of  the lowest of any comparable  states.  In the matter of unemployment, I am not attempting to  minimize the problem. If anything, I am maximizing' it.  But it seems very doubtful  that our solutions rest with any  single   economic   formula   but   ���  rather a sustained and varied  effort on many fronts.

Industry and business lose millions  of dollars annually through absenteeism,  accidents, damaged equipment and upset  public relations due to problem drinkers  on the payroll.  13. At least 50% of traffic deaths involve drinking drivers. If you drink, that's  your business. If you drink and drive,  that's everyone's business.  14. A positive approach to life's problems and tensions is more realistic than  using alcohol as an escape.  15. If you have a drinking problem you  can get expert, confidential help by calling  the nearest office of the Alcoholism Foundation of British Columbia or Alcoholics  Anonymous.

Working for all people  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  ARE BEST SELLERS  new equipment  at hospital  As a token of appreciation  ifor the support and continued  assistance given by the six  auxiliaries to St.-Mary's Hospital the board of trustees provided a tea and demonstration  of medical equipment on Sunday, March 12 at the hospital.  Mrs. Virginia Douglas, wife  of Don Douglas, chairman of  the board of trustees, was official hostess for the afternoon.  All board members present  participated in the afternoon's  proceedings.  There were 80 auxiliary  members who signed the guest  book on entering the hospital.  The Gibsons, Port Mellon and  Roberts Creek auxiliaries came  in the first showing at 2 p.m.  and the same program was repeated at 3 p.im. for the Pender  Harbour, Halfmoon Bay and  Sechelt auxiliaries.  The extended care lounge  held two pieces of the equipment. The portable isolette was  demonstrated by a member of  the nursing staff, Mr. Brian  Young, R.N., and the cardiac  arrest cart was shown by Mrs.  I. Donlon, R.N. Across the hall  in Room 212, Dr. D. Gerring  and Mr. Young explained how  the respirometer helps patients.  Workings of the anaesthetic  machine were described by Dr.  Gerring.  After each demonstration tea  and coffee with delicious refreshments prepared by the  hospital staff were served by  board, members in the physiotherapy department.  Speaking  on  behalf  of the  trustees, Chairman Don Douglas thanked the members for  purchase of equipment and the  time   and dollars   spent.   "We  have equipment in the hospital  that we wouldn't have without  the help of the auxiliaries and  other  individuals   and   organizations     on     the     Sunshine  Coast/' he said.  ...   Mr. Douglas introduced Mrs.  J.  L.  Beririie,  regional representative for the Lower Mainland   B.C.H.A.   division.  -Mrs.  Bennie said it was 'most evident that we had very active  auxiliaries. ' She   was   pleased  to  see   we  had   an   auxiliary  member appointed to the board  of trustees; all auxiliaries are  not so fortunate nor all boards.  It   was   regrettable   that   she  couldn't stay to be introduced  to the second group.

Letters to Editor  Editor: Last Sunday; the  Kwahtahmoss Film Society  presented the 1960 film production of Shakespeare's MacBeth.  I was surprised to see an audience of only 20 of so.  Surely, in a community of  this size, one wojild expect tov_.r?  finer more people' who "are in- '"'"  terested in a higher level of  cultural entertainment than is  normally found in a rural area.  Where were these people last  Sunday? Who can complain at  $5  for four films?  I wonder if this is indicative  of our community's attitude  to attempts by individuals or  groups to improve entertainment in this area. At the beginning, everyone is keen, but  after a short while, enthusiasm  wanes and the project collapses. Recreational Centre enthusiasts please take note.  -(Mrs.) Josephine E. Hammond  B.C.'S FIRST SAWMILL  According to B.C. Forest Service records, the fir^t coanimer-  cial sawmill in British Columibia  was built in 1846  at Parson's  Bridge near Victoria.  In answer ,to the editorial in  last week's Coast News, the  Sechelt Teachers Association  (BCTF) would like to make  the following points:  The Socred government of  ��.C has been deliberately confusing the public with regard  to school financing, and is trying to create a rift 'between  the public and the school system. They are further seeking  to make scape-goats out of  school employees, by creating  a false image that these employees are gouging the public  through high wages.  The government^ hopes to  whip up enough support (or  apathy) so that it can control  school employees' wages  through government deceit rather than the established practice of collective bargaining.  Our democratic rights are in  jeopardy, and so are those  rights of every other wage  earner in B.C. We plan to take  ���a stand now.  A closer exaniination indicate  es there has been some distortion of the facts by the government:  1. Educational costs are, in  fact, a declining proportion of  the provincial government revenue. They have fallen from  23.2% in 1962-63 to 19.7% in  1972-73.  2. School boards' administration costs are less than five  percent of the total operating  ���budget for the school system.  One can hardly improve on  such an insignificant figure.  3. Evidence indicates that a  "taxpayers' revolt" against the  school system is a myth created by the Socred government.  For example, of the 25 school  districts whose budgets exceeded the government limit, only  nine received petitions for an  operating referendum. This  hardly suggests a "taxpayer's  revolt."  The fact is, that out-of-pocket payments by homeowners for  school costs amount to only  pennies a day, and, perhaps a  majority pay no school tax at  all..  The provincial homeowners  grant is first applied to school  . taxes with any extra going to  municipal taxes. Last year the  grant covered almost all the  residential school taxes paid in  B.C.  For example, the 1971 operating expenses for B.C. school  8     Coast News, Mar. 15, 1972.  districts totalled $332 million  Aifter deducting the amount of  the share paid hy industrial  ���and commercial properties, all  that was left to come from the  pockets of residential property-owners was $7.5 million, or  2 percent of the entire budget.  To bring this to an even finer point, the $7.5 million breaks  down to only a penny a day  for every resident of B.C.!  The Sechelt Teachers Association (BCTF) feels that the  ratepayers recognize that no  other investment gives you,  the public, so much for so little.  Next time you hear Mr. Bennett or his minister talking  about the "high costs of education", just think of this little  ditty:  Only a penny a day  Is all that you pay.  | THE DRIFTWOOD PLAYERS            |  S present  I SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER  I BY TENNESSEE WILLIAMS  sa_  I With poetry and songs  ( Gibsons Elementary Gym  | Thursday, March 30,8 p.m.  ._-  M     Admission $1.25  Give An Everlasting Gift  For EASTER  FLOWERING PLUM ��� FLOWERING CRAB ��� FLOWERING ALMOND  HAWTHORNE ��� MAGNOLIA ��� GOLDEN DOGWOOD ��� SILVER DOGWOOD  CUT LEAF BIRCH ��� MAPLES ��� ROSE BUSHES ��� CA-WOELiAS  HYDRANGEA ��� BURNING BUSH ��� PC^NTILLA ��� WAYFARING BUSH  AND MANY OTHER FLOWERING SHRUBS AND EVERGREENS  IPTs  ALSO A GOOD SELECTION OF  FRUIT TREES  APPLE ������ PEAR ��� PEACH ��� CHERRY  ITALIAN PRUNE  BLACK  CURRANT BUSHES  WALNUT TREES  Creekside Greenhouses  R.R. 1, Reed Rd., Gibsons, B.C.

This could be done  under a village bylaw and  court fines would go to the village and help pay the cost of  the hired man.  The bank to the former Redman store area should have entrance ' and exit control signs  to direct traffic the sergeant  said.

"The concern over the alarming increase in education costs  is by no means confined to  British Columbia ��� it exists  in every other jurisdiction in  Canada and throughout the  United States," Mr. Brothers  stated. "In Canada, even the  rich provinces * of Alberta and  Ontario have serious difficulty  financing education and are  applying severe spending restrictions," he said.  The proposed amendments to  the Public Schools Act would  give taxpayers a voice at the  local level in whether or not  teachers in their districts  are  to be given salary increases beyond a figure set annually by  the provincial government and  whether or not their districts  can over-expend their basic education programs by more than  ���eight  percent,  in the  case  of  ithe large districts, and 10 percent   in   the   case   of   smaller  ones.  Speaking on these amendments, the minister said that  teachers' salaries represent  about 70 percent of school district operating costs. Since the  public is strongly demanding  that education costs be restrained, s o ni e modification  must obviously be used with  respect to teachers' salaries.  "Unless controls are placed  upon the rapidly rising costs  ,of education, the taxpayer will  revolt, and it could occur in  our province (as it has occurr.  red in a number of states in  the United States) that our  educational program will come  to a complete halt because the  cost of education will have  bankrupted the ability of the  taxpayer to pay these enormous costs. This amendment is  necessary, therefore, to bring  these controls about, and to  ensure that our educational  programs can continue each  year," the minister said.  On the subject of teacher,  tenure, Mr. Brothers drew to  the attention of the house that  for some years school boards  have thought that existing procedures were so cumbersome "  as to make it virtually impossible to discharge an inefficient  or incompetent teacher.  The subject was referred to  the select standing committee  on social welfare and education during the 1971 legislative  session . and many interested  educational groups ��� trustees,  teachers, principals, superinten  dents, the P.T.A. and others  appeared to make their views  known to the committee. Repeatedly, these groups emphasized that the problem was getting rid of teachers whose competency was in question, rather  than with some teacher who  may have committed a specific  misdeed.  The committee made a series of recommendations, most  of which have been adopted in  BAIT  & FISHING TACKLE  NYGREN SALES  (1971) LTD.  886-9303 Gibsons  VIIIIIIIVT THINK  TE1CHERS SEED UMMIE RIGHTS?

It  recommended that there should  be a clear cut division between  dismissal for cause, and dismissal for incompetency. The  first, would be a specific matter which could arise suddenly. The second would involve  the need for professional judgment and would obviously be  considered over a period of  time.  Mr. Brothers said that among  the regulations proposed when  the new legislation is in effect  is that the district superintendent and principal must be consulted before a teacher is placed on probation \>ut. that once  a teacher is on probation,*' his  appointment may be cancelled  en 30 days' written notice if  his work does not improve.  Mr. Brothers tabled the draft  of the proposed regulations  which, he said, followed almost  entirely the recommendations  of the select standing committee.

Point of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Earlier articles have dealt  with the advisability of compromising and settling legal  disputes if at all possible without the necessity of a trial.  This article deals with the opposite and rarer situation  where one person gave up too  easily.  Q. My daughter and son-in-  law have separated. They had  two chidren and he insisted on  taking one child (the boy) and  left her the daughter. She says  she objected but he went to  the most expensive lawyer in  town who never loses a case  and there was nothing she  could do. Now she is grieving  over it. Doesn't the mother get  custody of the children? What  if one of the parties is guilty  of adultery or cruelty?  A. No one who knows anything about court cases would  deny that it is desirable to have  expert counsel represent one  at a trial. Thus far, your daughter is correct but beyond this  she is quite wrong.  People engaged in legal disr  putes who give up the fight ber  fore the final battle, that is, ithe  trial, often use your daughter's  argument as an excuse. Ninety  percent.of lawyers are perfectly competent to handle this  type of. case. If they can't, they  will frankly say that they do  not handle these matters but  they can usually recommend  someone who does.  There is no such thing as a  Copyright)  lawyer who never loses a case.  This is a saying sometimes applied to the prosecutor in a  criminal case which has been  discussed in another article but  your daughter's type of dispute  is a civil case.  Even assuming your son-in-  law's lawyer to have been the  most competent counsel available, she would have been infinitely better off to have engaged any lawyer and fought  the matter out in court. The  fathers' lawyer would have  probably given up before the  trial anyhow ��� as the mother  has the law on her side.  Yes ��� the mother usually  obtains custody ��� assuming  she was not cruel to the child  or abandoned him. The welfare  of the child is the court's prime  consideration. If the wife committed adultery, this would  have little, if any, bearing on  the matter, assuming she was  not leading a life of depravity  or gross immorality. Similarly,  the issue of cruelty between  husband and wife, and who was  cruel to who, when and under  what circumstances or provocation usually has little bearing on the question of custody.  She can apply tp the courts'at  any time for an order granting custody of the boy to her  but the longer she leaves it,  the more difficult it will become. It would appear your  daughter does not want to fight  over it, for reasons best known  to herself.  Cancer research helps young  One hopeful aspect of particular interest to young people:  cancer research is demonstrating how some forms of cancer can be prevented,   t  The more that is learned  about causes and events leading to the occurrence of cancer in humans, the more will  be known about means of prevention.  It is clear, however, that effective prevention is a life-long  program which must start  when we are young. You can  decrease the cancer hazard to  yourself, your family, and ultimately to all members of the  community, if you practice  these seven safeguards:  For everyone:  TYPEWRITER REPAIRS  TYPEWRITER REPAIRS  & SERVICE  Agent for Hermes Typewriters  Phone 886-2728  R.
