Royal Canadian Legion Zone Commander Gordon  Clarke drew a parallel from  the abuses being shown today  involving bur freedom.  "Today we hear a lot about  commitment. The youth of the  40s also had a commitment;  over 40,000 gave their lives for  it. Very basically, it involved  the dignity of man and freedom of choice.  "What doesr the word free-.-  dom mean to you? Today; more  people are spending more time;  talking about the abuses of free  dom than ever before. Unfortunately, in the process, they  are abusing freedom as it has  never been abused before.  "For instance, many people  today think of freedom as a  headlong flight from responsibility. They keep V demanding  more freedom, taking everything out of pur system but  putting nothing into it.  r " So remembrance can remind you of the need to develop a sense of responsibility.  It reminds you, to seek changes  without destroying the system.  "It reminds you that you in- v  "heriteo. ,a., i��ch . and. beautiful  1 country:* It urges youTt'o use it  to help mankind; to promote  peace, understanding and above  Elections for 10 seats?

Staff (and students alike  dressed up in the general hillbilly style; and participated in  the various activities thtough-  out the day. The sock-hop at  noon-hour was provided with  music by Lome Jones, Budge  Shacte, Miles Williams and  Barry West. Hot dogs were  sold'at a table in front of the  gym' during the sock-hop.  The dance proved to be the  highlight of the day. Starting  at 8:00, the North-West Com  pany rocked and rolled until all  those present were dancing.  During a 'break, Brad Norris  and Debbie Willis were 'married', Dogpatch Style. Mr. D.  . Smethurst was the preacher,  with Lita Allnutt and Janice  Mullens as the somewhat unwilling-bridesmaids.  A total of 430 people attended the dance. Hired buses provided transportation from Sechelt and Roberts Creek. When  the dance ended at midnight,  the clean-up committee got to  work. The money from the admission resulted in approximately $350 profit.  Lots of people present  It was quite a night at the  school board meeting last week  with plenty of public participation taking place.  Mrs.  Celia Fisher and Mrs.  W. L. Reid were present on be  half of children with learning  disabilities;   Mrs.   V.   Rottluff  and Mrs. A. Sim for the Sea  Cavalcade   committee;   Frank  Fuller, teacher and nine pu  pils on their trip to Eugene,  Oregon; Mrs. S. Bujan, kindergarten teacher; Mr. R. Graham,  Elphinstone teacher and  George Matthews, Elphinstone  > teacher.  Also present were Hart  Doerkson, elementary instruction supervisor; Drew McKee,  Davis Bay principal and Mrs.  M .Darney, for a presentation  on learning disabilities.  Budget presented  all, the dignity of man everywhere. ��� :' X'-,,:X[y  "This is what Remembrance ;  is about.  The Canadians who -  died believed in a better future.:  It's up to you to work for this;  future.   If   you  do,   you   will  have remembered.  "Remembrance is a time for  each of us to think about what  we are contributing to that future. The poppy is the symbol  of Remembrance, but it's also'  a symbol of peace and the future. On November VI, if you  cannot    remember    the    war,  think of the peace."  . "If., ,you ^eant    remember,.  thlnK. " *Ftiis'~ _s" the   message*  which the Royal Canadian Legion is directing to the young  people again this year, because  many Canadians don't remember the war. But even though  you can't remember, Remem-.  brance can have a purpose for  you.  "If you were to visit Europe  today you would see part of  the Canadian identity on oyer  100,00 Ogravestones; a simple  maple leaf, telling passers-by  that Canadians who fell in battle lie here.  The ceremony outside the  auditorium on the school  grounds involved a white wood  eh cross before which Legion  members with Padre David  Brown officiating ,laid their  wreaths. The service was held  at the school because the Legion no longer owns its former  hall property and is awaiting  construction of its new hall.  Elphinstone school hall was  three-quarters filled with the  school band, Cubs, Guides and  Brownies and quite a number  of adults. Elphinstone school  band performed splendidly,  playing music for v the two  hymns, the KiplingiGod of Our  Fathers and Faith of; Our Fathers,' alonjg with two numbers,  including a rousing Tipperary.  Close to 50 veterans attended with Peter Carey in charge  of the parade. The RCMP,  Mayor Walter Peterson, Aid.  Winston Robinson and Ted  Hume along with Clark and  Mrs. Dave Johnston attended.  Top officials present were Mr.  Clarke, zone commander; Dorothy Bragg, auxiliary president  and Jack Morris, Branch 109  president. Taffy Gregg and  Tom Richardson provided pipe  accompaniment.  The district school board's  provisional budget for next  year calls for expenditure' of  $2,418,1*_8 . Of this amount,  $1,713,345 will be wages and  salaries leaving $704,803 to  cover transportation, administration, supplies, maintenance  and debt services.:  The actual budget percentage  covering salaries and wages is  more than 80 percent.  The 1972 budget totalled $2,-  204,142. The only budget composition change switched from  general administration to wages   and   salaries,  the  amounts  involved in unemployment insurance, taxes and benefits.  This reduces administration  costs and adds to the salary  and wages bracket.  The increase over the 1971  budget amounts to $214,006  which keeps the increase at  the allowable 10 percent.  This is a provisional budget  only. It has to foe approved by  education department officials.  District Supt. R. R. Hanna  enquired as to guidelines for  the final budget. The board  decided it would be realistic  and any excesses avoided.  Trustee Bernie Mulligan,  chairman of teacher wage negotiations for this school district announced at last Thursday's school board meeting that  wage negotiations with the  teaching staff will go to arbitration.  i The teachers sought increases ranging from 9.2 percent at  ithe low* end of the salary scale  up to 10 percent at top levels.  iTeachers estimate the figures  :as an average 9^58% increase.  The plusses include a shared  dental plan, additional paid  ; leaves   arid  bonuses,   also  in  creases for principals and supervisory allowances.  The board's final offer amounted to 9 percent for bfegin-  ner teachers reducing at the 10  year level to 6 percent or an  average over scale of 7.50%.  An agreement had been  achieved covering four clauses  outside the wage scale. When  put to a vote asking that the  clauses be accepted, a motion  to that effect was defeated on  the-basis that arbitration was a  new ball game and nothing  was achieved by either party  insofar as those clauses were  concerned .  Don Head school trustee  Don Head of Don's Shoes Ltd  Sunnycrest Plaza, was appointed by the district school board  to* fill the vacancy created by  the resignation of Mrs. Sheila  Kitson who was chairman when  she resigned. He will sit as a  trustee for one year to fill out  the regaining period of Mrs.  Kitson as a trustee.  The announcement was made  for the board by Trustee Bernie-, Mulligan who explained  the delay of the appointment  was  caused as  the result of  board activities in negotiations  with teachers over salaries, union affairs, and the pressure of  other events.  A letter from J. L. Canty,  superintendent of administrative services, Victoria, suggested the board may wish to hold  an election rather than make  an appointment. Discussion  which followed pointed out  that the board was in the best  position to. understand what  was immediately necessary. A  board member was required  now.  Roster competition planned  Another thing, watch out for  the boss, he's always creep*  --   _ ing up on yon. .,----"  Mrs. Joanne Rottluff presented to the school board last  week plans for a Gibsons Sea  Cavalcade community poster  competition involving schools  of the area.  There will be three grades,  primary, junior and senior  competitions with first, second  and third, Canada Savings  Bonds as prizes, in the following amounts: $75, $50 and $25  for the primary . and junior  classifications, and $150, $100  and $50 for the senior class. In  addition, there will be a grand  prize -winner who will be awarded all further prize money  in the form of a sizable bursary to further his or her education.  The contest will be held from  Jan. 1 to Feb. 28 with a panel  of six judges completing judg  ing by April 15. The posters,of  the 15 finalists will be on display for one to two weeks either in Eaton's or The Bay in  Vancouver. The poster judged  to be the best will be used as  the Sea Cavalcade poster and  circulated throughout the province.  Board members approved the  idea and hoped it would catch  on. They saw in it excellent  tourist promotion. Not only  were there prizes for the various groups but there would  also be a top prize for the one  regarded best of all.  To fulfill proposals for prizes and bursaries suggested by  the Sea Cavalcade competition  public contributions to the  fund can be sent to the Sea  Cavalcade Poster Trust Account, P.O. Box 510, Gibsons.  therewith:    Automotive   shop,  $12,500. ',..'.  (4) Other capital expenditures for school purposes: Plans  and supervision $21,000 and  contingencies $18,000.  All sums are eligible for provincial grants..  There are no ineligible sums  of money /which would involve  spending money outside of the  eligible amounts.  School board meetings will  be held to explain the referendum, as follows:  Wed., Nov. 15: Port Mellon  Union Local 297, 7:30 p.m.; and  Staff and Students, Elphinstone ,  7:30 p.m.  Thurs., Nov. 16: Gibsons Kiwanis, Cedars Inny 7 p.m.  ���   ,  Mon., Nov. 20: Gibsons Cham  ber of Commerce  Wed., Nov. 22: Sechelt Cham  ber of Commerce.

Tenders were received from  Commercial Construction of  Vancouver; Engineering Homes  of Burnaby; G. D. Shaw Construction of New Westminster,  and Kirkwood Construction,  Vancouver. The tenders were  passed to architect A. H. Pet-  zold  As tenders offered variations  of construction no announcement was made as to high and  low bids. What the architect  will now do is select the most  suitable arrangement at the  lowest cost.  Sign damage  serious crime  Roads department officials  have issued a warning that  destruction or damaging of  highway signs by vandalism  could result in serious charges  being laid.  These officials point out that  the Criminal Code states that  everyone who commits mischief  in relation to public property  is guilty of an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for 14 years.  Another clause reads that  anyone who commits mischief  that causes actual danger to  life is liable to imprisonment  for life.  Roads officials report tearing  down painting and the use of  firearms creates a considerable  amount of the damage.  Toys wanted!  If you have some toys that  are repairable or can foe spruced up, wives of members of  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department are ready to repair or  fix them.  ���The repaired toys would be  given to less fortunate choir  dren of the area.

If you know please tell us!  Readers will have a chance to offer opinions on the following  question: Why is the dollar estimated in 1939 at 100 by the economic index, now rated at more than 300. In other words why  do we have to spend $3 plus today for an article we could have  got for $1 in 1939.  It is the same piece of paper bearing the value of one dollar  but it can only buy in most instances about one-third of what  it bought back in :39.  If there are any readers of this paper who have the answer,  the Coast News will gladly publish their views. Students are  also invited. Let's have views from all ages.  Back to the West formula  The proposal of the Gibsons and Sechelt councils to assemble  cost information and priorities to put before their ratepayers  in. connection with municipal requirements and the desires of  the Recreation committee, is a wise move. \  Priorities should not be overlooked if taxpayers desire to  have reasonable taxation in a community with desirable amenities such as water, sewers and other requirements.  The palmy days of low taxation for the Sunshine Coast has  disappeared or is disappearing fast according to where you  live. This recalls to mind that some five years ago, Director  Frank West, chairman of the Regional District board advocated  that authorities handling public funds should get together and  settle the matter of priorities involving the spending of large  sums of money. He visualized that in sight was the possibility  of the taxpayer having to face decisions associated with something like $5,000,000. This was for various schemes-.which were  not ready for the voter but were looming large, such as school  board and Regional district needs-along with Gibsons sewers.  Mr. West's ideas were greeted with interest but not much  more. Most people involved in the spending of public money  thought it a good idea and with the approach of the Municipal  Finance Authority it was believed to be the answer to the  district's financial  outlook.  As matters now stand both Gibsons and Sechelt are doing  their own financing. It would appear logical for Sechelt if it  desires to go into the sewer business to do its financing through  the Regional board. This would place the entire assets of the  Regional board behind the Sechelt borrowings. It Would be,  cheaper and easier in the long run on' Sechelt ratepayers.  Some people who have the desire to belittle the efforts of  Director Frank West, should give him credit for suggesting something that would be of use to the community. Director  West has his faults. He also has the faculty of taking a mass  of figures and a project and make some sense out of it. Maybe  his detractors should try and do the same thing ��� successfully.  Socreds die hard!  The Coast News has received a copy of an article headed  The NDP Trade Union Rip-off that sets out an apparent Social  Credit version of what has happened during the NDP first  month in office.  Thirteen points are outlined and they convey the impression  the NDP path towards a Socialist Hell is paved with more  than good intentions. An inference lurks throughout that it is  a pity Socred policies are not spreading their beneficial balm"  across  the  province.  There are various points of view available about the change  of political climate in B.C. and this weekly paper is prepared  to give the new NDP government the same chance to prove  itself as did Mr. Bennett's government when it took over in  1952.  5-ii-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Mayor ; Peterson of Gibsons  argued the Regional board  should obtain a planner to decide where the Regional office  should be located.  St. Mary's Hospital board  has obtained approval for an  additional 13 acute and 22  extended   care  'beds.  Traffic control at the Gibsons Elementary school area  was raised at a school board  meeting.  10 YEARS AGO  ���Gibsons Legion honored war  dead, at the new cenotaph recently dedicated on the  grounds   of   the   Legion   hall.  Two seats will be up for  election on Sechelt and Gibsons councils and it is expected present, candidates will be  re-elected.  Post office authorities informed Gibsons council there  will be "ho letter drop box in  vicinity of the old post office  building.  15 YEARS AGO  Establisment of a sea plane  float in Gibso'ns harbor is  sought by Gibsons council.  Vancouver Credit Bureau  officials addressed Sechelt  and Gibsons board of trade  meeting   on   credit   practices.  Power outages brought Gibsons council to maintain the  power situation was better  under the B.C. Power Commission.  20 YEARS AGO  Gordon Mooney has announced a garbage collection service covering the Gibsons-  Hopkins Landing area.  A three bedroom six room  Hopkins home -was advertised  for rent at $35 a month.  Elphinstone students decided  to' have informal talks with  PTA memibers over the holding  of  school  parties.  Beginner writers show a  polished style in the following ���  selections from Gibsons Elementary school-writing classes  of Miss M. McKee and Miss S.  Davidson. These classes are  working in one of the open  areas and the two teachers are  heavily involved in team teaching.  THE   STRANGE  PLANET  The rocket was surging,  through the blackness of space.  I was feeling nervous and  when I looked out the window ���  I could hardly see the earth  far  below  me.  Suddenly I' saw some kind  of planet which had stripes  all over it. It looked like Jupiter and I decided to land, on  this strange planet to explore  it.  When I landed I saw an  enormous man that had ears  like a devil. This strange looking giant saw the space ship,  lunged towards it and started  shaking me out of the ship.  After he had shaken me out  of the space ship he took it  and started, running away  with it. I tried to keep up  with him but I couldn't and  breathlessly rested on a tree  trunk  near  their  city.  Their city was like squares  with a thousand windows. I  tried and tried to look for the  space ship but it was gone. I  walked  around each building.  Suddenly the enormous giant  picked me up and started  walking to their lab room.  They were going to make me  into  glue. .. ��� "  They put me into a bottle  and poured some kind of stuff  on me. I yelled, "Help! Help  me somebody!"  "Wake up, wake up," mom  said, "you were having a nightmare, and you were walking  around the room like a man  from   Mars/'  Thank goodness it was a  dream: Robert Jonas  THE SUPER BOWL  There I was under a five-  man tackle. I still had the  football in my arms, my helmet  was dented and my shirt was  ripped, but I was determined  to stay in the game. '  There were ten minutes left  to play. We had the ball on  the twenty-yard line, it was  our first down. The plan was  to pass. All pf a sudden the  ball was in my arms' and I  ran, as fast as my legs would  move. I managed, to get to the  five-yard line; the score was  seven all. There were six  minutes left in the game. We  had one more down.  The quarter-back said the  signals, "18, 24, 32, hike!" He  lateraled to me, and I was  over the line. Just then. my  teacher took my chair off of  me and all of the class was  laughing. Denis Turenne  Test for school boards  The current round of teachers' salary bargining is the  first real test of the willingness of school boards to resist  _ undue pressure for increased  expenditures writes J. V. iSme-  dley, president, B.C. School  Trustees Association, in a letter addressed, to the Chairmen  of all member school boards.  The action of the government in removing the limitations ori salary increases has  placed the onus for reaching  reasonable agreements with  teachers squarely on the shoulders of school trustees. There,  are no guidelines to save us  from making difficult and  sometimes painful decisions,  he added.  Smedley commented that  he had been impressed with  the confidence that the minister of education, by removing  the limitations! on teachers  salary increases and budget  levels, had placed in the ability of school board's to govern  themselves with wisdom and  prudence.  '  He reminded school board  chairmen that at an earlier  meeting    trustee    representa  tives had agreed, that a maximum ' increase of 8% in  teachers salaries was the most  that we could expect the taxpayers to accept at this time.  Smedley went on to say that  school boards are on trial, and  that the way in -which we  conduct ourselves, during .this  difficult period, could well  determine the future role of  the school board as an institution   in   B.C.  , Twenty-eight school districts  will be allowed to over-expend  their 1972 budgets in order to  correct a variety of undesirable  learning situations in those  districts, Education Minister  Eileen Dailly announced  earlier.  Mrs. Dailly said it will foe  made clear to each school  board affected that the cost of  the basic education program  for each school district for the  calendar year 1973 will be  carefully evaluated in order to  give maximum consideration  possible to the continuance of  the 1972 emergent corrective  action, as well as a general upgrading of the educational program for 1973.  Mainly about people  (By ED  THOMSON)  Charlie Strom of Sargent  Road, going on 68, is back in.  town after a fair-to-middling  season's fishing on his gillnet-  ter, Miss Rhea. From mid-May  to ������ July he trolled successfully for halibut in the Sointula  area; then in Rivers Inlet for  salmon, continuing on to Bella  Bella to intercept the run on  Chums'. The sky-high off-the-  whari Vancouver prices for  these at 40$ to 55^ a pound  made the ample catch a most  profitable one, a big< jump  from the 17^ price per lb.  earlier  in  the  season.  On the return trip Charlie  called in again at Sointula, a  Finnish settlement, for a final  two weeks of fishing, then  back to home port, Gibsons.  He figures on - fishing for  another week or two, depending on the weather, then layoff for a spell to enjoy a well  earned   rest   ashore.  Strom, a robust cheery and  well-seasoned fisherman, and  his wife Mary, have brought  up their family in these parts  during the past 23 years.  There are four strapping  sons: Charles Jr., a mate on the  B.C. Ferry service; Freddie,  a gravel truck operator and  Danny and Teddy aboard the  fishpacker    No.    8.   The   two  daughters, Penny, Mrs. Don  McLimont, is mother to three  and Mrs, R. McKenzie of Kamloops has four children. In all,  there are, as Charlie puts-it,  only  15 grandchildren!  He has experienced constant activity as a commercial  fisherman first cruising the  waters off the West Coast of  Vancouver Island since 1925,  as skipper of fishpackers and  gillnetters. At 68 he is still an  active fisherman.  THE GOLDEN EAGLE  SQUADRON  My squadron is made up of  John, Paul, Frank and myself,. Captain Richard Scott of  the IDS. airforce. One day  while, my sqadron was flying  in Sop with Canals our scout  planes spotted a German air  raid squadron flying about  two miles from our camp.  I gave the signal and my  squadron dived into action.  All bf a sudden my friend  Frank got into trouble; the  leader of the air raid squadron wias after him. I dived  after him to try and help but  then three other German  planes came down and started  shooting at me. One Mt my  back wing flap arid I started-  going into a power dive. Every  thing became a blur,, and I  crashed, landed, looking about  me I noticed I was laying on  the floor beside my bed.

Winston Robinson wants  a cross-walk in front of Elphinstone school to help students get to the other side.  He brought the matter up at  last week's meeting of council.  Mayor Walter Peterson was  not sure it would be a good  idea, maintaining that police  and road department officials  do not favor centre of block  cross- walks. As the mayor  put it motorists not acquainted with the area cannot see  the cross walk in spite of warn  ing signs .At the same time  the person usingL.the cross-walk  feels secure because of the  painted lines, resulting in unnecessary accidents. Council  will write the roads department to get its point of view.

Be perceptive  and .quiet.  TAURUS - April 21 to May 20  You are much closer than you  think, to reaching a goal in  life that you .may have set for  yourself many years ago. This  will vary, of course depending upon the exact year of  your birth.  GEMINI - May 21 to June 20  Gemini persons should "see a  much better time in all matters, now that Mars has left  the sign of Sagittarius and is  slowly moving across Capricorn. A very "lucky" period  is coining up soon.  CANCER - June 21 to July 21  Play it "cool and' cautiously"  for the next week or so, in all  business and social matters.  There's a little astrological  "storm" in your chart right  now that might be most an-  hoyimgl .  LEO - July 22 to August 21  Much activity is indicated especially around home, with  friends, relatives and neighbours. Business matters should  be coming along well at this  time. Take time to catch up  oh  correspondence. ,  VIRGO - August 22 to Sept. 21  Virgo persons are still enjoying some very "lucky" aspects  to their birth sign. This could  also mean that meeting an old  friend who you haven't seen  in years will bring much enjoyment.    ,  Prepayment for  sewer discussed  The matter of pre-paymerit  of the $150 sewer connection  cost was considered at last  week's meeting of Gibsons  council but nothing definite  was arranged.  The subject will be discussed by council with Dayton  and  Knight, sewer engineers.  In the meantime those people  who want to pre-pay, that is  pay now instead of early next  year when it is expected this  work will be done, can do so  if they want to.  Clerk David Johnston informed council that he was  seeking a bylaw on tins subject from North Vancouver  and he would look it over before advising the mayor and  aldermen on the course they  could take.  With most homes set back  from the front property line  there will be a cost "from the  property line to the home  which will foe done by the  home ow_ier hiring a commercial organization capable  of doing such work. Also  where there is a septic tank  it will have to be drained out  and broken down.  (By JOAN BLOMGREN)  Not too much has happened  around Elphinstone sport-wise  this past week, due to midterm exams. Basketball practices are well underway and  most first cuts have been made  in preparation for the season's  start.  Home games for Elphie's basketball teams will soon be  starting. Members of the community interested in refereeing  any of these games are asked  to contact Mr. Garry Gray or  Mr. Larrie Grant.  On Wed,, Nov. 15, the Cougars Senior Boys basketball  team will foe travelling to Lynn  Valley in North Vancouver, to  play a scrimimage against Argyle Pipers. Then on Friday,  the Iboys and the Senior Cheerleaders will journey to Princeton, to take part in the first  tournament of the season. The  Cougars first game will foe  against the Columneetza Cougars from Williams Lake.  LIBRA  -  Sept. 22 to Oct. 22  Nerves may become high-  strung as tensions seem to be  building up around you. This  is   mainly   "within   yourself"  and should not be allowed to  upset plans for you and your  loved oiies. Relax, and try to  help others.  SCORPIO - Oct. 23 to Nov. 21  Some long awaited communication dealing with -business  matters could come any day  now. You are lucky, and stand  to gain, if you act "wisely at  this time. Make decisions  carefully . and don't "jump"  too quickly.  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 Dee 20  "Simmer down" a little, and  get the facts, before taking  any decisive action. The stars  will be giving you much more  support later on this month.  Real estate matters are highlighted.  CAPRICORN - Dec. 21 Jan. 19  "Go where the action is" by  all means; but don't go too  far! - You'll only end up in  confusion if you try to accomplish too much in ,tob.  short a time. Business matters  in buying and selling are most  important.  AQUARIUS - Jan. 20 - Feb. 18  The "lost and found" department of your social and business life is strongly highlighted at this time. You may  "lose" some tilings, and 'find'  others to replace them. Be  realistic!

Legion Branch 109 Poppy  Fund collections amounted to  $800 this year and Gerry  Clarke, Poppy chairman, expressed her feelings as follows:  "On behalf of the veterans,/  widows and dependants, I  would like to thank the people  and businessmen of Port Mellon and Gibsons for their generous donations amounting to  $800 to the Ifoyal Canadian Legion Branch 109 Poppy Fund.  "These donations make It ���  possible to give help where it  is needed. Whether it be groceries for someone hungry assistance to take a veteran to  hospital iri Vancouver, patchwork on a roof for a widow, or  aid for the schooling of a dependant, the fund is there.  "To those of the Legion, Aux  iliary and the others who gave  their assistance we thank you  for the time spent on this campaign.  ���Gerry Clarke,  Poppy Chairman,  . Royal Canadian Legion 109  Editor: It was a relief to  read the article A View from  Soames Hill in your paper two  weeks ago. I have queried  many local residents re the proposed island in the Bay. Other  than council members I have  heard no one speak in favor of  this so-called improvement.  Is it the function of the council to represent or to dictate to  local residents? It took a great  deal of; public feeling to have  the route of the by-pass road  thoroughly investigated. The  _��� subject of the proposed island  and hotel is important enough  to those of us who live here  .that it ^should go to plebiscite.  ���Eileen  Glassford.  Editor: It was very heart  warming to attend the Armistice service and to listen to  our High School band under  the instruction of Mel Campbell.    -;        :x  The warmth and feeling that  was put into each piece by each  , student could not go unnoticed  by anyone in attendance. The  highlight for the senior veterans was the playing of It's a  Long Way to Tipperary. The  looks on their faces must have  made the student^ feel appreciated, as they were.  So often in the past this  band has received very poor  support . and publicity which  seems so unfair to a lot of children trying to do their best  and a very dedicated teacher  who together turn out very  good music.  To each member of the band  we say "Keep up the good  work, most of sus are proud of  you"; and for the putting up  of the chairs and the clean up  after the service, thank you.  ���Gerry and Gordon Clarke.  Garbage idea!  Decorated garbage cans not  only to beautify and also attract people to use them was  suggested by Aid. Gerry Dixon  at last week's meeting of Gibsons council.  Comments made on the condition of Gibsons streets drew  discussion on the present and  situations of the past, which  revealed a difficulty in finding  a solution. However Aid. Dixon  presented the idea of decorated  garbage barrels -with students  painting them either as scholastic art or on their own.  MRS.

The Firebrands, pioneers in  this highly effective modern  form of musical evangelism,  took form ten years ago in  New Zealand. They moved on  to Australia which is now their  home base.  From the rousing Hallelujah  In the Morning opening that  sent voices soaring, hands and  feet 'beating out the time,  through to the deeply meaningful The Potter and on to the  final revival favorite Come on  Home to Jesus, these five evangelical troubadors held the  audience in their thrall.     .  Interspersed in the program  were vocal solos, instrumental  pieces and a ventriloquist act  by Dave Hall that could hold  its own in any theatre.  Ron Jackson and Dave Hall,  both pastors in their own right,  gave short sermons as did  Nancy Dykes, pastor of the  sponsoring local Glad Tidings  Tabernacle.     ..������  My   first   experiences   with  evangelism occurred on a blazing hot July day back in 1910  in Belleville, Ontario, when my  militant-minded aunt literally  dragged me into  the  big top  canvas tent where Billy Sunday, ex-National League baseball player and reformed boozer, was holding forth before a  highly receptive crowd as he  ran  up   and down   the  aisles  flourishing his baseball bat. In  later years, at various times I  came in contact with such notable exponents of evangelism  as Amiee Semple McPherson of  the Los Angeles Four Square  Gospel; Billy Graham, and, in  Winnipeg,   Dr.   Charles  Price,  Father 'Christmas and Brother  Small who collected crutches,  trusses and such-like.  In all ithis one could not  help but be impressed by the  loud and lusty affirmation of  this new brand of gospel troubadors employing the latest electronic techniques to press  home the age-old Gospel message.  ���Salmon life cycles, populations and protection of the fish  were discussed at a meeting in  the Sechelt Legion Hall on  Thursday, Nov. 9.  Tim Bird, a biologist working with Environment Canada  Fisheries Service (Federal)  brought along some interesting  and educational slides to. demonstrate his points.  He explained that out of  3,000 eggs laid by the female  chum or pink salmon, only  about two ever survive to return to their place of birth to  continue the cycle. The mortality rate is so high that in  the first few months of their  lives the 3,000 are reduced, to  300 and only about SO of these  survive to leave the creek to  spend the next 2-V_ years at  sea.  The slides showed some of  the man made hazards which  occur, many of which are illustrated very graphically on the  Sunshine Coast in relation to  the logging industry. Whether  the fault lies with the government -who supposedly lays  down guide lines which must  be adhered to, the logging  company or the logger who is  doing the actual work is a moot  . point. Whoever it is must be  made to realize, according to  Mr. Bird, just what the results  Pupils enjoy trip  Thirteen students who made  the trip to the schools in Eugene, Oregon, recently, under  supervision of teacher Frank  Fuller reported to the school  board at its meeting last week  that they showed more respect  to their teachers than did the  students at Eugene.  Mr. Fuller laid the groundwork for the students after explaining that Eugene was an /  affluent industrial district with  schools that lacked little. He  felt the students from Elphinstone made quite an impression  on the Eugene people.  They found there was complete ignorance of Canadian af-  ; fairs,  having  no idea  of  the  ;��� political setup in Canada and  this appalled ttie students who  knew quite a lot about the UjS.  It appeared from what the  Spokesmen  "for   the   students  were Valerie Simmons, Cheryl  Guelph and Susan Jorgenson.  Mr. Fuller announced that 20  students from the Eugene area  would be visiting Elphinstone  from April 23 to 27.  UCW luncheon  Gibsons U.C.W. Fall Thank-  ofering luncheon meeting Nov.  10 was a smorgasbord luncheon preceded by a meeting  opened Iby U.C.W. President  Val Boyes.  Ev. Vernon gave a thoughtful devotional. Kay Moore introduced the speakers, Mrs.  Millie Schmidbauer, secretary  of the Sunshine Coast local of  the B.C. Association.' of Non-  Status Indians, and Louise  Hume, Christian Education  chairman i of Gibsons United  Church.   ' '  Mrs. Schmidbauer explained  the meaning of a non-status Indian, spoke of problems and  aims of the association, which  began in July of this year and  has 51 memibers in the Gibsons  to Egmont area.  During the question and answer period, Mrs. Sdhmidbauer's  knowledgeable replies covered  a wide range of facts and figures concerning all Indians,  their fears, problems, and  hopes.  Mrs. Hume spoke on a meeting she had attended of the  B.C. Organization of Non-Status Indians and the work they  were doing. Mrs. E. Davies  thanked the speakers. Rev. Jim  Williamson closed the meeting.  of their actions arer and must  learn to look at the removal  of trees from the environinen-  tal point of view instead of just  in terms of dollars and cents.  Even the building of a logging road or clearing of a site  for a shopping or housing complex can have disasterous results in a long term basis, due  to wash and soil erosion affecting creeks. With a little bit  of planning ahead and discussion with the right authorities  much of this kind of thing,  could be avoided and everyone  would be able to enjoy the  benefits of the. results, be ad-  ' ded.    ���"��� ������-��� /V--\'/'  (Mr. Bird showed some pictures pf river and creek estuaries and explained why they  are so important to the fish  and wild life generally. They  are a great source of food for  all types of life and are of  course a big temptation to the  people concerned with building  boat loading facilities. He suggested that other locations be  examined which wotild have  little or no detrimental effects  by comparison.  Log drives, tighter controls  on slash burning and the effect  of bark and sunken logs in  creeks were among other subjects covered by Mr. Bird.  There were a number of questions and remarks by the attentive audience indicating the  interest and concern of those  present.  Among those present were  two federal fisheries officers  covering this area, Mr. Wheeler  and M. Ray Kraft, and also the  provincial fisheries representative Mr. Peter Caverhill. Several Regional board members  met with these gentlemen after the presentation by Mr.  Bird arid it is to be hoped everyone came away with a better understanding of the importance of conservation in relation to the salmon.  young  The November meeting of  the Port Mellon Auxiliary to  St. Mary's Hospital was held  on Wednesday, Nov. 8 at the  home of Inger Neilsen, iPresi-  dent Doreen Dockar in the  * chain  Minutes of last month's meet  ing were read by the secretary,  Florence Harris.

These teachers  could then become resourse  personnel or SLD instructors.  An   adult   education  course  be established for both par-v  ents    and   teachers    to   deal  directly with SLD testing and  remediation.  The present UBC clinic be  continued or altered to one  ���weeik. per month for eight'  months per year. The latter  program would be staffed by  a psychology PH.D. candidate  from UBC, supervised by an  instructor. This clinic would  specifically attempt to assess  primary .children.  The .following proposals  were suggested to the school  board in order to achieve some  solutions to the current dilemma facing SLD children. It was  recommended that an intensive  in-service program be conducted by personnel highly  qualified in SI_D screening,  testing, and teaching skills for  four major areas, creating an  awareness in teachers that an  SLD problem exists; assistance to teachers to identify  problems; method of screening  and testing children to identify: cases and remediation techniques within a regular classroom. ��� '*.-������'  Hart Doerkson, supervisor  of elementary education informed the board slow learners had a reading and language disability.

Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer;  Copyright)  Question:   Why   is   the   law  and lawyers on the side of the  crooks? '���}'  Answer: All law may be, ih;  general, divided into two main  classifications: criminal law  and civil law. Criminal law-  deals with offences against the  crown (or "the state" or "society" if one prefers). Civil  law deals with disputes ���be-'"..  tween individuals such as  breach of contract, collection  of debts, car accidents, etc/  We will deal with lawyers  first. ."  Lawyers are not on anyone's;  side, as such. If anything they*  are on the other "side" - that:  is, far more criminal cases;  have a lawyer acting as prosecutor (for the crown) than  as defence counsel. Often of  course there will be both a  defence counsel and a prosecutor. In either case it is no  duty of the lawyer to concern himself with the moral  guilt or innocence of the accused but merely to do his best  to obtain a conviction or acquittal - depending on who is  paying* him.  What about the criminal  law? Often it does seem that  it is on the side of the crooks.  There are a number of factors  which weigh in favour of a  person accused of a crime.  Firstly, he is presumed innocent - till proved otherwise.  Secondly, the burden of proving the accused guilty falls on  the crown - the accused does  not have to prove himself innocent. Thirdly, the standard  of proof is very high - an accused must be proved, guilty  beyond all reasonable doubt.  Also, the accused has the doctrine of the guilty mind or the  guilty intention operating in  his favour. He cannot be convicted of a crime unless he intended to commit it - or at  least some crime. For example  in a shoplifting case the accused will be acquitted even  though he took the goods, if  there is any [reasonable' doubt  that the taking was accidental  or   through   forgetfulness   to  pay.  As against this the crown  does have certain advantages.  It has almost unlimited money  and resources to expend in  preparing its case - police,  laboratories, * scientists, etc.  The prosecutor also has (paradoxically) the criminal mind  working for him. Most criminals, when charged with an offence, promptly proceed to  talk their way straight into  prison.  Often our criminal law is  wrongfully blamed for being  on the side of the crooks when  it is some other governmental  institution that operates in  their favour. Thus the administration of our criminal law  has no control over the parole  board, the remission of death  sentences, the remission of  portion of sentences of imprisonment, prisoners being released on leave from prison  etc. Almost all catagories of  crime are on the increase. Per  haps this trend could, be reversed if the sentences of the  courts were carried out as  such, without interference  from other government depart  ments.

This is second best  in the Vancouver District  Fourth Division.  To. increase their win record  Gibsons met the University of  British Columbia Tomahawks  at the university.  In the early going it was  realized Gibsons had' their  work cut out for them as the  UBC team out-hustled and outplayed them. Shortly into the  opening half some excellent  passing and running by the.  UBC backs saw their winger in  for a try*. The convert was unsuccessful.  UBC continued to press but  were unable to get inside the  Gibsons 26-yard line. Gary  Flumerfelt managed to kick  the ball out of the Gibsons  end and when the UBC fullback lost, the ball Ken Johnson  picked it up and ran in for the  try. John Crosby added the  convert. The score was 6-4 in  favor of Gibsons.  In the second half Gibsons  managed to get the ball out of  their end only once. For a period of approximately 10 minutes the UBC team was inside  Gibsons five-yard line, but the  Gibsons scrum would not yield  entire half as Gibsons played  a try. This set the stage for the  solid defence in their own end.  The   whistle  finally  sounded.  Gibsons had their sixth win.  Final score was 6-4.  ��� This weekend Gibsons hosts  Simon Fraser University at Elphinstone High school at il:l<5.  Come out and support your local team.  SOCCER  Division 5:  Ken's Vikings  PH.

Dixon obtained  approval for posting of signs  on a special dock that it is reserved for boats 40 ft. or over.  Hump to stay  The hump at the Winn road  post office corner was discussed briefly when Aid. Ted  Hume suggested that when  road -improvement occurs in  that airea the hump be graded  down.  Mayor Peterson . explained  that this had been tried years  ago but the roads department  gave it up as there were too  many water springs underneath which complicated the  situation.  Shaw road was also brought  up.
