 Provincial .Library,  Victoria, B. C.  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 836-2622  Volume 25  Number 19, May 10, 1972.  10c per copy  BASEBALL  (By YO-YO CHAMP)  The first game between the  Legion 140, Sechelt and Gibsons ANAVETS opened the  Pony League season Sunday  afternoon at Brothers Park.  As I was an athlete of some  repute, Yo-Yo champ of Surrey; '27-'28, I watch impartially and. can tell you that if the  the game was any kind of criteria, this yearns Pony league  is really going to be wonderful.  Not having a roster of the  Legion team I can only say  they are a team to beware of.  It is tough enough in a series  opener to get it altogether  when your roster is dotted with  new names and.more so when  you are on away from nome  turf. '   : ���������_,'���'���  As for the ANAVETS Craig  Norris played well although he  tends to overrun the bases.  The game was called at one  time to get the Norris head and  neck out of the wire backstop.  Steven Charlesworth pitched a  dandy game. "  What was missing were spectators or to the.point, parents.  Some people are always beefing ^ouVyounguhoodluins and;  young troublemakers. If any  one^of these young men^deigned to call me uncle I'd burst  with pridle. I don't think its  whether you go home a winner or a loser but to go in there  and hear a lot of pizzaza from,  your own home town cheering  section is worthwhile. AH in all  it was a terrific game by two  teams that need nothing more  except lots of spectators.  (The yo-yo champ forgot to  mention the score!)  SIDEWINDERS  The Little league M&M Sidewinders travelled to Wilson  Creek on Sunday, for their  third game of the season. They  were defeated by the Wilson  Creek Crickets 17-16.

Pitching for the  Sidewinders were Clay Mullen  John Nygren and Joey Ted-  neault. ���  Home runs, were scored by  Joey Pedneault for the Sidewinders andi Kenny Wiiite and  Randy Tyson for the Crickets,  the latter being a: igrand slam.  In the two previous games,  the Sidewinders defeated the  Howe Sound Boom Men 16-11  and lost to the L & K Loggens  14-4. Next game will be at Pender Harbour May 10.

I ���__ ���      '  (Contributed)  At 7:45 am., April 22, a new  49 seat Trailways Airporter  bus owned by All-Fun Tours  pulled out of Horseshoe Bay  bearing 44 members of Gibsons  OAPO and Sechelt Senior Citizens bound for Reno, Nevada.  At Eugene, Oregon about 5:30  they stopped for smorgasbord,  a few drinks then retired. Leav  ing" Eugene about 8 am. in  beautiful cool weather, we arrived at Reno at 5:30 p.m. Sunday. The Gold Cup casino provided a spot of gambling and  champagne free and we noted  that a Canadian woman with  another party dropped1 25 cents  in a slot and hit a $3,500 jackpot. ���-'���.,  Monday at Virginia City in  beautiful weather we climbed  7,000 feet to where one could  look straight down into the  valley. Sootty, the Virginia  City mayor and former Canadian, from Nanaimo, greeted  us. We had lunch in Virginia  City, which is like Barkerville  with its Frontier Days atmosphere but it is also ah active  town in full operation.  Down the other sidfe of the  mountain to the capital, Carson City where the party was  welcomed at the Silver Spur  for refreshments, then back to  Reno to sumptuous quarters  at Pioneer Inn. Later dinner  was served at the Money Tree.  Tuesday wes made a fabulous  trip to the south shore of Lake  Tahoe with itsJbeaiitiful backdrop of snow-covered mountains. The party received a  royal weloome at the new multi-million dollar Sahara Tahoe.  Along with the Royal Welcome  -was $6 in dimes and nickels,  also lunch.  Back at Carson City we were  again welcomed at Cactus  Jacks. The owner, also a Canadian from Port Moody, excelled with a special Canadian  stew and all the champagne  we could drink, followed by an  excellent evening dinner at  Mapes Hotel.  Wednesday was a day of do-  as-you-please.' Thursday we  loaded for home at 7:30 a.m.  and after an overnight stay at  Eugene, arrived at Horseshoe  Bay in time for the 7:10 ferry.  Most meals and drinks were  free arid we received1 a royal  welcome wherever"we went.  Our bus driver, John Fisher  was tops and everyone enjoyed  every minute of it. We are now  the youngest bunch of old people alive.  Saturday; 2 p.m.  Opening of the new Gibsons  Public Library, building, at the  Municipal Hall will take place  Saturday at 2 p.m. when Mayor  Walter Peterson will officiate.  Much work has been done in  the-transfer of books from the  old building to the new one  under the direction of Jules  Mainil, president of Gibsons  Library Association.  At Tuesday night's meeting  of council disposition of the old  library building was discussed.  Council decided that as it did  not own the building it will be  turned back to the owners, the  Library Board, for disposal.  There have been several applicants for use of the building.  However council says it will  have to be moved as it intends  to make a parking area there.  for other governments totaling  $78,533 to the school board,  Regional board, hospital board  and fire protection district, the  budget with which the council  will use funds within the village will total about $78,533.  The five year capital budget  calls for an outlay of $73,000  but as this budget is liable to  change in content from year to  year it is more of a bookeeping  total. It includes $17,000 for  Trail Bay seawall, $46,000 for  road paving and $10,000 for  acquisition of property. The  paving is covered by a government grant and the seawall  $17,000 will come from current or surplus revenue.

Clubs plan to  help Players  Driftwood Players have been  busy applying to community  organizations for financial support in order to travel to the  B.C. Drama finals at Dawson  Creek. Although the group has  tried hard to support itself, the  success of two finals in three  years has depleted its coffers  because travelling is so expensive.  The Kinsmen Club has already made a most welcome  donation, and other groups  have indicated their intention  to do so.

And how is your tax dollar?  A federal government publication titled How Your Tax  Dollar is Spent, covers 31 pages of explanation. It appears fairly  complete and is a revealing job.  When it comes to analyzing the taxes you pay next year,  there is a fairly substantial tome of 231 pages turned out by an  accountancy firm.  The comparison is one that bordlers on the odious. It is true  that the accountancy tome covers various types of taxation levied in the numerous categories that have been set up but governments appear to be in favor of the type of clarity in their  legislation that requires a history of legalities before they even  understand the legislation themselves.  Having observed lesser officials make up their mind that a  certain new measure means such and such, it does not appear  strange, to find out that, pttawa isn't quite sure what it means:  So there! As Clarence Darrow said the trouble with law is  lawyers.  J. Law returns! Heigho silver  Shades of John Lav/. His past invaded a recent issue of the  Bank of Canada monthly review. That past concerned John Law,  a son of a Scottish banker who became financial adviser to  Louis XV and tried his economic theories with the result that  the financial crash which burst his bubbles was tragic for himself and many thousands of others.  One can only wonder if there is a John Law or something  similar behind the scenes in Ottawa, behind those tightly guarded doors of the Bank of Canada. It is apparent that Canada's  financial policy as regards the dollar is one of velocity rather  than value. Perhaps the velocity, or the number of times that  a dollar gets used, carries more weigrt than do.es a scarcer dollar ��� with a tighter value. When will we have levelling off?  Those that play leap-frog with the currency should study John  Law's career. It is interesting!   ���  Bright bits!  Some businessmen buy cheque-writing devices; others marry them.  There may be some truth to this reincarnation theory, judging by the way some people come back to life at quitting time.

ISABEL DAWSON)  During the first half-century  of the Province's history the  emphasis was  on  disposal of  land by -Crown  Grant.  This,  suited the policy of encouraging rapid settlement and  im-  provemeht of rural land-  But times have changed.The  rural   life  has  largely ; given  way  to  urban. - Incomes   and  leisure   time   have   increased  greatly   and  technological  innovations have pushed resource  development projects to gigantic   size.   Competing   demands  for land resources have never  been  greater.  Today the 'emphasis is on  land management to achieve  harmony between private and  public uses, and and demands  for land. To achieve this aim  a sophisticated variety of sys-  tams have been devised for  regulating the disposition of  Crown   land  As Governor of Vancouver  Island, James Douglas had  set up a system of land sales  ori the Island.that was proving satisfactory. As soon as  gold miners and prospectors  began to flock to the lower  bars of the Fraser River in  the early summer of 1858,  Govenor Douglas took steps to  extend Colonial administration  to the mainland.  Strictly speaking, he had no  authority to administer or to  proclaim laws on the mainland  but Douglas sensed that the  situation demanded prompt  action. While awaiting his commission as Governor of the  Colony of British Columbia,  Douglas proceeded to establish  a system of Crown land regulation   and   adminisltration.  He realized that the stream  of immigrants would increase  the demand for land tremendously but that without adequate survey or administration  there was a very real likelihood that they would simply  occupy the land as squatters.  His early actions riot" only re-:  fleet an administrative acumen  but also a keen appreciation of  the resources that the disposition of-land, would ^bring���-tci  the Colonial  coffers.  To cut off unauthorized land  speculation, Douglas quickly  declared the Crown's rights  and privilages. In a proclamation dated September 15,  i858, the governor re-asserted  Crown title to lands near Langley or elsewhere on the Fraser  River. His message to persons  occupying land without authority was brief arid to the point  squatters"~will be su_T_rharily  ejected." ��� ���"���  An 1859 proclamation established procedures for the purchase of surveyed Crown land,  however, demand soon exceeded the supply of available  surveyed blocks. This was especially so in the Southern  Interior, and the Lower Fraser  Valley, where permanent settle  ment based on agriculture  came hard on the heels of the  gold rush.There was a need  for a system of pre-emption  of unsurveyed agricultural  land outside of the established  towns. A proclamation, dated  Jan. 4, 1860, established procedures for pre-emption of unsurveyed agricultural land.  The pre-emption policy used in British Columbia, although varied slightly from  time to, time*, differed considerably from the homestead  system widely used in the  United States and the prairies  of Canada. Whereas homestead  laws were aimed, at getting  settlers to occupy free-granted  land, pre-emption in British  Columbia was originally devised as a convenience to allow settlers to legally occupy  unsurveyed agricultural land  prior to survey and purchase.  As the years passed the initial stampede of gold seekers  gave  way   to   a   more   stable  level of population and economic   development.   Reflecting  these trends, the Land Ordinance Act of 1865, consolidated  the statutory regulations cov-'  ering   pre-emption   and   purchase. It added additional provisions! for the lease of timber,  lands, grazing leases, and the!  acquisition and filing of water;  rights. !  Because the B.N.A. Act gave  the provinces exclusive powers  over land, the Act of Confederation in 1871, between British,  Columbia and Canada did not  result in any immediate change  in the land laws. However, colonial status was ended and replaced by executive control  of most resources in provincial  hands.  The years immediately preceding Confederation had been  marked  by a slow decline of  population    as   the    nomadic  prospectors   drifted  away..  Production from the Cariboo  gold mines matured and stabilized^ Agriculture levelled  off. After Confederation and  its promise of a rail link with  the Prairies and Eastern Canada, population and economic  development again began to  build   momentum.  This was the era of cheap  and abundant land, when a  man with little capital but a  lot of energy could obtain a  living for himself and his family by persistence and hard  work. A 160 acre pre-emption  was considered to be an optimum size for a family farm.  Until 1884 when the price  went to $2.50, the general charge for country land was $1.00  an acre.  After 1891, however, surveyors were required to classify  lands according to their productive potential, with first  ���class lands to foe valued at  $5.00 an acre, second class  $2.50 and third class $1.00. A  revision to the Land Act in  3896, defined timber lands and  reserved them from purchase.  Jumping now to the -year  1945, the Department of Lands  was divided into two- major  units, the Lands Service 'and  the Forest Service. The decision to split the Department  had been prompted by the tremendous upswing in the forest  industry, and by the outlook  for still greater -expansion  of the Crown's interest in the  resources  of the Province.  In 1962, the department was  split again ���this time the  Water Rights Branch of the  Lands Service became the  Water Resources Service. '"���  ��� The post war years have  seen many changes. Aerial  photography for Imapping  purposes became commonplace. New field equitment for  surveys, including electronic  instruments for communication  ���and distance measurement,op-  tical survey instruments capable measuring angles to hun��-  dreths of a degree of arc reirir'  forced the technological breakthrough from the slower, more  labouriouj3   and   less   precise  techniques of the 1930's.  During the 1960's computer  data-processing was introduced  Electronic machines could now  handle complex survey calculations in seconds instead  of hours by manual methods.  Over the last couple of  decades the Province has been  entering an era of increasingly  complex land use and regulation. Large-scale projects in  transportation, forestry, hydroelectric development and petroleum exploration, for example, demanded long-term  management and planning  commitments.'  Right-of-way for new roads,  railways, pipelines and power  transmission lines, /forest management  and parks,  sites for  microwave, and lots for summer cottages and resorts are  just a few samples of the exploding   post-war   demands.  The Policy of reserving particularly attractive . Crown  lands for. the use, benefit, and  enjoyment of the general public has been vigorously applied  throughout the province. Since  1958, all unreserved Crown  lands fronting on lakes, rivers,  or the sea have been limited  to disposition by . leasehold  .. only.   ^  Finally, the provincial legislature passed a .new Land  Act in 19,70. Although earlier  Land Acts had been revised  and. consolidated from time  to time, their substance was  (derived basically from (the  Acts of the 1870's and 1880's.  ^^^*0*0*0*0*m^^^^^**^^^^*0*****0***0*****0*^^0*0*mm**0***mim0*0*0^**mmm0***0^  N.

Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  Gibsons ��� 886-2481  Paul ST. PIERRE, MP  COAST  CHILCOTIN  WASHINGTON- Except for  statistics and portentious political statements, , nothing is  perhaps so tiresome as rem-  iniscerioe. Nevertheless? given  a choice of three, I choose the  last. Sorry about that, but  there are other sections of  the paper to which you can  turn.  When the first week of plenary sessions of the Organization of American States had  passed I found myself about  as,free as the ordinary man  ever gets to be .of a Sunday.  So I made my way to nearby  Bethesda, in Maryland, a spot  of earth largely unknown to  the rest of the world except  that once a year a helicopter  delivers the U.S. president to  the big Naval Hospital there  for  his   annual  health  check.  Unnoticed by the world,  Which tends to direct more  attention to presidents, lives  Russel Ewen Banks, an ocean-  ographer of Canada's Defence  Peninsula Hotel  LIVE ENTERTAIMMBIT  Pizia will be available  Phone 886-2472 FOR RESERVATIONS  Research Board staff who is  now in Washinton dealing with  officials of the United States  armed services Iwho share his  tastes in scientific subjects.  His present position has nothing to d!o with this story. I  went there because Russ and  I made our friendship in high  school, when some of the firm- .  est of all friendships are made.  We crammed for exams together in his parents home opposite the post office of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and had  drinking parties there, spending a nickel, as we can best  recall, for an* immense bottle  of a carbonated or tang drink  icalled Big 8. (They were austere days. Even had we been  so daring as to attempt to drink a bottle of beer, we could-  nt have found the money and  if someone had asked us about  marijuana, we -would probably  have replied that it sounded  like a nice place to visit.) ..'���  W_ had joined the air force  in 1941. I was washed out of  air crew with what is called  rheumatic heart, Huss because  of chronic air sickness. Not  uhnaturally for a man' of his  stubborn United Empire Loyalist temperament, he went on  to become an oceanographer  end has vomited into every  ocean on which Canada borders in the course of his career. He has also contributed  his dinners to the Caribbean,  land perhaps other seas.  This type of sickness arises  from a sensitivity of the nerves  in the ear canals and now that  he's becoming sQlightly deaf  he is less susceptible to motion  sickness. Accordingly, he does  n't sail in research ships any  more but is deskbound in  Washington.  That's life for you. By the  time a man learns the rules  and acquires the skills, they  change the game.  So we reminisced about  many things, but the one I  bring to mind at this moment  is the time when Russ's father  was   hauled into   court.     .  RESIDE in the  The elder Banks was a big  quiet man* who operated a  tiny garage. He went to church  on Sundays and, we believe,  thought much about the condition of his soul on the other  six days of the week.  Through no fault of his, an  erratic mail service failed to  bring him his annual driver's  licence by the due date. He had  paid for it, well in advance,  ���but it hadn't been delivered.  Two days after the due date  Mr. Banks was checked by an  RCMP constable, formally char  ged without a current driver's  license, and hauled into court.  At that time, there were no  arrangements for payment of  such fines by mail. The offender was expected to appear  in the courtroom, together with  the drunks, the vagrants, the  whores and other sinners, to  his crime.  Mr. Banks pleaded guilty.  He was, to his own mind  guilty. Whatever the faults of  the mail service, he should  have left the car at home until His Majesty's mails provided him -with his license. He  was given the maximum fine.  It was more than he could  properly 'afford, but he found  the money and did not have  to go to jail.  "He was terribly hiuniliated,  Russ recalled. "But what I remember most was that he  never uttered one -word of complaint. And we boys were never  allowed, before or after that,  to utter one word of criticism  of policeman."  We speculated as to whether  times had changed, sipping  Scotch in Russ's den, -watching  the mocking birds play on the  well-manicured  lawn.  Women to run  in Marathon?

A sewage system,easy to install and could be moved a-  rpund readily to new areas,  was explained to Sechelt's  - council Wednesday night, of  last week by Pat Martin, president of Northern Purification  (Services Ltd. and formerly the  Propane Gas people on the  Sunshine Coast.  Mr. Martin explained to  Mayor Ben Lang and aldermen  that the plant is perfect for  small developing communities  because it doesn't cost as much  as a permanent sewage treatment plant.  The firm manufactures  plants suitable for apartment  houses, house boats, industrial  plants, off shore drilling rigs;  /ski resorts, private hospitals,  summer recreation areas, deep  sea ships, generating stations,  trailor mounted mobile units,  and residences.  A problem faces government  and small communities today.  In order to expand the communities need complete sewage  treatment plants. The pi-oblem-  hdw to raise the money.  (The small population centres  cannot raise the money and tne  government .is limited in* its  role. Just one small town of  500 people in B.C., a_? an example is faced with raising  $1.8 million. On the surface an  impossible situation, Mr. Martin  said.  In his past role as sales manager in the propane' ��� iiidustry,  he was aware that the natural  gas indtistry had been faced  with, and hadi neatly solved,  the   same   type   of   problem.  The problem in that industry  was one of wanting to expand  gas mains into new areas but  the number of customers  would not support the cost;  They worked with the propane companies and moved in  portable tanks to serve new  loads until there was enough ���  total load to carry the cbpt of  a natural gas system. Propane ���  tanks were then moved further out to build up another  area. ���       ������':.  Northern Purification Services felt that what the sewage  problem needed was its own  type of tank. ,  The result is their all insulated fiber glass Bio-Pure package sewage plant line which-  can treat up to 10,000 gallons  per day. .".._*  The   plants   can  be   picked  up and trucked anjrrwhere and :  becaufce   they   are   insulated,  can be installed above or below ground.  Being completly covered, no  buildings or *"- fences aire required and they are aesthetically acceptable. On delivery  all that is required is the inlet  and outlet connection plus 110  volt single phase power.  Mr.   Martin  said  there   are :'<  two additional features which]'  enable these plants, unattended  to adjust themselves to fluctuating loads such as one findsfe  in   resorts,   schools,    business  or  commercial complexes. ~  He said design was based on  the use of standard readily  available components to -minimise   service  problems.  After a main single community system has been designed for an area, the Bio-  Pure .portable units could be  installed to serve planned spot  or group development within  the overall planned 'area.  All underground sewer connections could be designed to  eventually tie-in with the  final- plan.  ' At a later date, decided by  the rate of grpwth of the tax  roll, the, main overall sewer  system would be put into nise,  and the Bio-Pure portables  would be moved out to build  up other remote areas.  Council thanked Mr. Martin  for his^^ presehtatiph after he  had answered numerous queries which concerned what private developers would be able  to do with a system as outlined  by Mr. Martin.       v  For your printing Ph. 886-2622  Blake C.

The minister thinks it proper at this time  to make a number of observations.  "1.   Many ratepayers are be  ing told by municipal and regional district officials that the  by-laws are the product of the  department of municipal affairs.  I should indicate that aver the  years the Municipal Act has  been moving in the direction of  conferring unore and more authority on local government and I  suggest that it is unethical' to  confer authority on the one hand  and then very heavily police it  from the departmental level on  the other'hand. I therefore feel  it is incumbent upon local government   officials  to   make   it  FOR SALE Gold Medallion Home  Year Old NHA Split-Level with 4 bedrooms  In Gibsons, first house on Shaw Road  1850 square feet plus basement  Citation Kitchen with nook and Dining Room  Large Family Room, Utility and Two Baths  Living room with fireplace, plus fireplace in basement  Wall-to-wall carpets and feature panelling throughout  Full Price $45,000 Phone 886-7468  clear that the authority confer*-  red under the Municipal Act  cannot, by any stretch of the  imagination, be used as a shield  against the protests of a ratepayer real or imaginary. (  "2.   An increasing number of  ratepayers     are     .comiplaining  v about the inadequacy of public  information prior to the adoption of by-laws. This _argely .revolves around: (a) chaises, of  perfunctory adherence to the requirements for legal notice, and  (b) inadequate public r explanation in normal language of some  times hiighly legalistic regulations. :x"'  "3. Complaints are increasing that regulatory bylaws seem  not'to be very deeply rooted in  terms 6f public priority and that  many of the powers which are  theoretically present under the  Municipal Act should,be used if  there is a clear cut public under-  standing ithat a problem exists  whlilch can only (be resolved by  regulation. I think what the public are really saying here is that  ��� *co(nimon sense and discretion  with respect to regulations is  better than red tape.  "4. .Again the drafting of  some refgu-atb-y bylaws leaves  the implication that the Municipal Act without qualification is  the basis for the bylaw. I think  the public are entitled ito know-  that most municipal, bylaws today are pe__n____ve and perhaps  a specific example here would  illustrate-the nature of the public concern. In one instance a  municipal staff officer'advises  a ratepayer and I quote, 'the  wording of this bylaw is straight "  Member of the Multiple Listing Service  SECHELT AGENCIES  DUflNr  Office ��� 885-2235  rnUIlL  From Vancouver Toll Free ��� Zenith 2012  FUN:  The older you get;  The more it costs.

Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Most  people  know that  all  they have to do about a trespasser   on   their   property   is  phone   the   police   but   what  about members of the family  who may or may not have a  aright to be on the property?  Q.  My   19  year  old son  is  living at home. He quit school  and is not looking for wo___.  He  sleeps  most  of  the  day,,  eats like a horse, plays records  and runs around all night.  I  have asked him to leave home  but he refuses and as I am. a  widow there is no man around  to help  me  make him leave.  Do I have to put up with my  son or will the police do anything for me?  A.   You   should   explain   to  your son that as he is an adult  it is no longer your duty  to  provide   a   place   for   him   to  live and that, if he does not  leave the premises on your request, he will be trespassing.  If  he  continues to  refuse  to  leave, contact, the police and  tell them that your son is trespassing   and   that   you   want  him removed from your house.  Generally,  the  police  are  reluctant   to   deal   with   family  problems. You must, therefore,  be prepared to follow through  and have a charge of trespassing laid. If the police are uncooperative,   you   should   see  the   Prosecutor  and   insist   on  your  rights.  Q. My husband and I bought  a house ten years ago as joint  tenants, two years ago my husband left home. Last night  he showed up at the door  and said* he was moving back  in but I ...told him that he  could not and refused to unlock the door. He said he ���'.  would kick the door down if  he- had to , and, when I still  refused, he kicked the door,  breaking the latch and moved  all of his belongings into the  guest room. I left the house  and spent the night with my  Aunt. I went back to the house  today and my husband was-  not there but his belongings  were. How can I prevent him  from coming into the house?  Did he break the law by kicking the door open?  A. Firstly, your husband did:  not break the law by forcing  entry into the house as he owns  a share of it, as do you, and  you are both entitled to possession. You cannot prevent  him from entering the house  unless he will give up his  right to possession. You should  consult a. lawyer about a separation agreement. You, or  your lawyer, (depending on  the circumstances) ' may bja  able to persuade your husband  to transfer or sell you his interest in the house or at least;.  permit you to retain sole possession without his interference as part of the separation  agreement.
