 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 836-2622  Volume 25  Number-*6r October 25, 1972.  10c per copy  With" both Sechelt and Gibsons municipal councils rejecting the Dec. 9 vote on the Recreation plebiscite expectations  are that the Regional District meeting Thursday night will delay further readings of the referendum bylaw and cancel any  thought of a vote from the Halfmoon Bay to Langdale area, including the villages. While this is unofficial it appears to be the  only action board members can take.  Sechelt  meeting  Last Wednesday's, Seohelt  municipal council voted against  holding a second recreational  plebiscite on the Dec. 9, muni-  .cipal election day, and instead  supported a motion that the  plebiscite be held sometime  during  the  next six months.  At the same meeting remarks were passed, implying  that Gibsons council will follow Sechelt's  lead.  At the conclusion of the.Se-  chelt meeting Dr. Paetkau  who took part in the discus-  sion said the action of council  was  auite  a  shock.  Last Wednesday nights action came as the result of Se-  dhelt council's debate at the  Oct. 4 council -meeting which  revealed: opposition. However  no1 motion was passed to this  effect:  ��� The debate . was hot and  heavy! at one time resulting in  two aldermen rising from  their seats and offering their  resignations,^ was cleared  uj> when it was explaihedthat  Mayor Lang's saying in connection wit-i the "motion that  the vote could be "held on  Dec. 9 was not part of the  motion.,     _?'.���  The two iiwho*' offered their  resignations were Aid. Norman  Watson and Burnell Gordon.  The motion moved by Aid.  Ted Osborne and seconded by  Aid. Watson read that the recreational plebiscite be held  during the next six months.  The mayor observed that  would still leave Dec. 9 as an  open  date for  the  plebiscite.  Gibsons council meeting:  Oct. delayed actipn on the  Regional board's suggestion  that it arrange to hold, the recreational plebiscite on Dec. 9  Council decided to hold the  matter over as Mayor Walter  Peterson maintained if Sechelt  dropped out it would upset  the whole financial arrangement which involved a cost  of three mills per year over  the whole voting area, Halfmoon Bay to Langdale. Council, deferred action to see what  Sechelt  would  do.  I'^Ma^pr: Lwg ^at^.tiie Sechelt  meeting said cpuncil was* not  against therecreation"project  but priorities' were showing  up. He. felt Sechelt's dollars  should go into its sewer project, A: feasibility study on  sewers ,will be placed before  Sechelt's council Nov. 2y by��  Martin Dayton; professional  engineer.  Mayor Lang reported pressure from the public showed  the taxpayers wanted the vote  and as far as he was concerned council would not lose face,  by giving them that right.  There was no knowledge as to  how they would vote.  Aid. Osborne wanted time  to place before the public the  cost of sewers to see if they  wanted sewers or the recreational centre or both. It mig;ht  take a year to get the sewers  lined up. The- mayor said, he  thought' the public should  know the cost of sewers would  be heavy.  Following passing of the  motion a remark( was passed  that the situation might not  be any different six months  from   now  than  it  is   today.  Gibsons     council     Tuesday  night moved that it .would not  hold a referendum election day  on behalf of the Sunshine  Coast Recreation Centre due to  lack of information, but it  would reconsider holding one  in February, 1973.  This motion, moved by. Aid.  Winston Robinson and seconded by Ald._ Ted Hume brought  to a clqse a dispute stirred by  Aid. -Hume wiho did not like  Clerk Dave Johnston's interpretation of a motion of the  Oct. 10 meeting.  Aid. Hume was of the opinion he asked that the Recrea- ���  tion   committee   be   asked   to  provide more' information on -  its financing of the recreation  project. Clerk Johnston was of  the opinion the issue was left:  openXo find;pul^whatwere Se- j  pheit's intentions.  Aid. Hume telt that the pub- ;  lie should have^ the chance to \  vote.   Mayor Walter  Peterson  said  the position at  the moment   was   that- Sechelt   had'  stated its .case and in view of  ' Thursday night's Regional District meeting "when the refer-  endum for the Recreation vote  would be up for second and  third readings, it would want  to know what Gibsons intended  to do. He-argued that it was  up to Gibsons council to de-.  ;. cide what it would do.  He outlined what Gibsons  voters would have to face during the next year saying that  it would cost some people up  to $500 to connect their homes  to < the sewer system. "Gibsons  is faced with sewers the cost  of which would toe on the basis  of ; one,_ million dollars," he  'added..  " Earlier in the meeting a delegation of seven appeared  headed by Mr. E. Birchenall  and Mr. Victor Eckstein who  were spokesmen. Mr. Birchenall started by saying that last  February council moved that  it wpuld not support a further  recreation referendum until  February of next year. He argued that the Recreation committee was now striving to  bulldoze its way into getting  what it -wants.  He maintained the homeoiwn,  er grant would not help the  pensioner and that for them  the sewers was quite enough to  handle. He referred to the  postponed half million dollar  school referendum covering an  Elphinstone school gymnasium  and other items. He said senior  citizens were opposed as it was  not fair to ask them to pay for  a luxury recreation teoanplex.  Mr. Eckstein supported Mr.  Birchenall _ argument with  similar remarks.  Replying, Mayor Peterson  said that he was not prepared  to put a referendum before the  public again. Sechelt and Gibsons were faced with the same  problem, he added .It was then  he referred to Gibsons sewers  costing in the region of a million dollars.  Cpuncil at this meeting consisted of Mayor Peterson, and  Aid. Hume and Robinson. Former Aid. Charles Mandelkau'_  seat was vacant and Aid. Gerry Dixon was not present. The  delegation recorded the discussion on tape.  Here is the letter to the Regional District board which  asked for the plebiscite:  The architect's new cost figures, are:  Capitol cost of building (as-\  sttmihg  winter  ice)   $440,000;'  add   for   summer  ice   $15,000  Design and Engineering $27,000  Equipment $5,000  Total $487,000  "Referring to our copy of  letter to you dated October 1,  1971, indicating our detailed  197.2s cost figures at a total sum  of $460,00, you will now note  an increase of $27,000 pertaining to early 1973 construction  period. This increase of cost  would be considerably higher,  were it hot for the landscaping and' entrance road cost of  $25,000 which has been eliminated from tWs submission.  The most part of this program  has already been completed  and which was mainly financed through the Local Initiative Program and revenues received from the timber sale.  "The committee sincerely  hopes that; after full consideration by the board, a second  plebiscite will be recommended and arranged. The comimittee is of the opinion the taxpayer should be given the opportunity to> vote on this by  the "end of this year which, we  feel, if accepted, would provide us with the excellent opportunities tp qualify for governmental grants and low interest- fate;:^  on its way  (By DEBORAH McNEVIN)  Boys and girls at Elphinstone  scihool are now. running up and  down the halls, preparing for  Sadie Hawkins Day, Friday,  Nov. 10, the day when girls  are allowed to chase the boys,  and invite them to the dance  that evening.

Aid. Norman Watson  said the Sunshine Coast Disposal Services, collectors for  the Regional District, had also  signified its intention to offer  a tender. Council decided to  call for tenders.  Council approved the plan to  straighten out the land between  Cowrie Street and Toredo. It  was explained there would be  some losses and some gains in  property, therefore the plan  would have to be discussed  with owners of the land involved.  Sechelt, Chamber of Commerce congratulated council on  its paving program this year  and also on the handling of  traffic in the centre of the village.  Robert W. Allen was granted  a license to operate in the business of land, surveying.  Where to vote  While polling proclamations on display in government offices state that voting in Gibsons area will be  at the schools, this is not the case.  Gibsons area voting will be divided roughly with  . the people on the upper level voting at St. Bartholomew's Church hall and the lower level people will vote  at the United Church hall. It was found after the proclamations were printed that the schools would not'be  available Monday. Area polls are as follows:  Egmont: Silvey residence.  Pender Harbour: Davis Residence.  Francis Peninsula: Flatley residence.  Madeira Park: Community Hall.  Halfmoon Bay: Halfmoon Bay Store.  Sechelt West, Sechelt Village: Legion Hall.  Sechelt Centre: Indian Council Hall.  Sechelt Hospital: Hospital.  Wilson Creek: Community Hall.  Roberts Creek: Legion Hall.  Gibsons Heights: St. Bartholomew's Hall.  Gibsons: United Church Hall.  Langdale, Granthams & Soames Point: Community  Hall.  Port Mellon: Community Hall.  pool sought  cial and federal funds to help  them. Aid. Ted Hume suggested that filtering would be required.

Gibsons Kinsmen Club proposed to Gibsons council Tuesday night that it be given land  in the village on which to conr  struct an 82 x 45 ft. children's  swimming pool. The "proposal  was turned over to Ralph  Buchan, town planner for his  consideration including location of suitable' land.  Mayor Walter Peterson said  he had been approached on this  subject and was of the opinion  it would toe a good thing as a  pool had been talked about for  some time. -������'���.--��� .;���*���.;-..��� ������������: .���-'������:��� y~-~-yX#~  '.'.: Aid.

The group supplied music by  composers who require no introduction such as Schubert,  Mozart, Faure, Gounod, Bellini  and others of more recent vintage. The singers were Betty  Work and Irene Groundwater,  sopranos; Derek McDermot,  baritone and Dianne Globe, accompanist.  They supplied trios, duets  and solos. Arias came from Mozart's Magic Flute, Bellini's  Norma and the Mozart Mar  riage of Figaro along with various separate songs. Gounod's  Serenade appeared to be the  particular favorite in the solo  section, sung by Irene Groundwater with excellent accompaniment by Dianne Globe.  The effort of the quartet to  bring such music to a Gibsons  audience was a brave one and.  the quality of the vocalists and  music deserved a larger audience. Perhaps next time the  quartet will draw a larger  house. It was a refreshing couple of hours and those who attended are to be commended  along with the musicians. The  event was sponsored by the  Sunshine Coast Arts Council.  Tough game for rugby team  ERIC THOMSON BETTER  Eric Thomson of Hopkins  Landing is now recovering satisfactorily from a cataract operation, at the home of his son  William, North Vancouver. He  was in Lions Gate hospital for  the operation.  ��� i*rcm-|1.*^wr.i|n^^  FIREARMS BYLAW  In view of the mixed type of  land within* the confines of the  village of Sechelt, council is  seeking a firearms bylaw which  would allow zoning for. arms  carrying in areas which are  not close to habitation and yet  cover the village proper. Council has a copy of a West Vancouver bylaw which it thinks  might be the one it could use.  Last weekend'Gibsons rugby  team  travelled to Newton  to  battle -with the Surrey rugby  club. The game had originally  been scheduled for Gibsons but  last minute alterations moved  the game to town. ,  The game, in its early stages,  revealed Gibsons was not going to have its way. Surrey, a  much toigger team, scored early  arid added a penalty kick before Gibsons could even get on  the scoreboard. Bill Sluis scored his first try of the season  with the entire three line putting together some good passing to get the ball to Bill. John  Crosby added the two point  conversion. The score at the  half was Surrey 7, Gibsons 6.  In the second half all the  scoring was done toy the opposition with one converted try  and one unconverted, try. Gibsons did have several opportunities to score penalty kicks  and several times were on the  Surrey five yard line but failed  to capitalize on any of these.  The game ended 17-6, leaving  Gibsons with a 3-2 record.  This weekend, Oct. 28, at 1:15  Gibsons meets the Trojans at  Elphinstone High School. The  team apologizes to those people who came out last week  but due to circumstances beyond their control the game  had to be played elsewhere.  Big development?  An-application from Rivtow  Straits Ltd. seeking tentative  approval covering an extensive  area of land within the village  for subdivision purposes came  before Sechelt council last  week. Council decided it needed more information* as to the  use of the land as it is composed of a large section of Sechelt's drainage area.  The area under discussion as  outlined on a map covered  from Hackett Park area to Porpoise Bay road practically to  the federal wharf in Porpoise  Bay. The area is held toy Sechelt Lands Ltd. 2      Coast News, Oct. 25, 1972.  What church  means to me!

Sunshine Coast financing  Trying to be objective over arguments prevailing about the  Recreation Centre and the proposed vote for Dec. 9, (municipal  Election Day in Gibsons and Sechelt and in the Regional District from Halfmoon Bay to Langdale, is a subject which should  not be a snap judgment; except if you should happen to toe the  seventh son of a seventh son with supernatural powers of deduction.  One can easily dismiss doubts of our ability to pay by  blithely stating that more than one million dollars a year is  spent on alcoholic beverages in this Sunshine Coast area. But  that would be a futile argument. There may be a remarkably  few persons who would for one whole year deprive themselves  of a beverage in order to pay that money over to the tax collector for use in the Recreation Centre. That would1 be stretching  Utopia beyond wildest expectations.  , To start with a base from which to work, the taxable  assessment for the Regional District amounts to something over  $48,000,000. From that assessment we have taxation to support  the Regional District, the Regional Hospital board, the school  board and two municipal councils. The Regional Board and  Hospital board are expanding units and their growth requires  more money. The same applies to the school iboard and to both  municipal council sewers.  One might ask where the greatest impact of taxation occurs in this area. Well it is quite simple, Area F, Langdale, supplies something like $20,000,000 of the $48,000,000, because of  the Port Mellon mill taxation.  The Recreation Centre is asking $487,000 to be spent on  the centre. Gibsons is now saddled with sewer costs and Sechelt is investigating sewer costs. The hospital is taking a bit  more taxation and the Regional District board faces general expansion creating taxation requirements. The school tooard is  facing a referendum amounting to close to $450,000 more or less.  The problem of priorities has (been raised toy Sechelt's council. It could also be raised iri the overall picture by the school  board, hospital board and Regional board. Which leads one to  ask how elastic is the taxable dollar in the $48,000,000 assessment. How much can the ratepayer stand without wincing.  When the wincing time comes the taxpayer wielding a vote will  answer the question.  Few people will say the Recreation Centre proposal is not  a good idea. If we had one today operating at its fullest extent,  most people would be happy and the younger set would be quite  pleased with the whole thing.  The fact is we have a spirited committee driving itself as  hard as it can to give the area a Recreation Centre. Their effort has produced one partial victory at the polls which they are  trying now to enhance by calling another vote which they expect will do the trick.  The situation between the two municipalities, Gibsons and  Sechelt, is that now Sechelt by council motion has extended the  9. However, it could take place on Dec. 9etaoin shrdlu cmfwyp  possible voting time to within a period of six months instead of  Dec. 9.  Both councils are understood to be arranging a conference  for early November, which if correct kills the vote for Dec. 9.  Just what effect this will have ori relations between the public  under municipal control and the Regional tooard taxpayers may  become more clearly defined. Right now one can only wonder.  When it comes to financial problems both Regional and with  the village councils the Municipal Finance Authority should not  be overlooked. It is an organization which works with Regional boards and handles their financial problem�� provincially.  This means municipalities like Gibsons and Sfechelt can finance  projects through the Regional board thus putting more stability  into the financing as the entire assets of the Regional District  back up the loan. Otherwise municipalities have to finance on  their own just as Gibsons is now doing.  So if you want to make up your mind on the basis of priorities or to forget priorities, just use the Biblical read, mark, learn  and inwardly digest. It might help.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  The' bylaw which changed  Gibsons Landing to Gibsons  was   given   its  final   reading.  The Sunshine Coast Tourist  association has decided to  make its* ! headquarters in  Powell River owing to lack of  interest in the Sechelt, Gibsons Pender Harbor area.  Coyotes are reported to be  numerous in' the Seohelt rural  area.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons new post office  opened for business on Oct.  29.  Removal of the post office  from the School road corner  has resulted in a change in  pattern of Gower Point road  parking.  15 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Board of Trade is  checking into the increase in  trucking rates on Black Ball  Ferries.  Roaming cows have become  a menace and one wit dubbed  the area a nine o'clock town  because of its lack of controls.  Winter ferry schedules have  cut the number of trips down  to seven per day.  20 YEARS AGO  A small Gower Point home  with 127 feet frontage on an  acre of land was advertised  at $4,000 on easy terms.  The new United Church at  Roberts Creek was dedicated  Oct. 26 toy Rev. H. J. Bevan.  For Church Week,: now  passed, Gibsons United Church  minister, Rev. Jim Williamson, arranged an essay competition for congregation members to write on What Does  my Church Fellowship Mean  to   Me!  He selected three of them  as toeing suitatole for publication. Here is the first:  I have been a part of the  church fellowship all my life.  My home was* a Christian  home, I went to Sunday School  and church as a child, began  teaching Sunday School in my  teens and as the years went  by I found the fellowship became more and more important to me and my family. It  truly does bring me more and  more happiness with each  passing year.  You might ask how and  why I receive such happiness  from my church fellowship.  This I will try to explain in  the next few paragraphs.  Firstly I would say the main  reason, for this happiness lies  in the wonderful bond that  exists one -with another and  wjith God - our oneness in  Christ. We are each striving  to carry out Gods will. Together, despite our differences  we are one, and though we  may travel, different routes,  we are ultimately all reaching  out to God.  Acceptance is another quality I find in the fellowship. Because I know that God accepts  and loves me as I am, with all  my .weaknesses, just as he  accepts everyone within the  fellowship, so we, who belong  to the fellowship, are more  willing and able to accept  others in the spirit of Christian love. This acceptance by  the numerous fellowships we  have been a part of has been  especially enjoyed by our fami  ly. Moving from place to place  as ;we do - one truly is glad to  be received into the fellowship  so readily. The friendliness  shown has* been too wonderful  for  words.  Then too - within each person is the need to feel useful.  I can think of no better place  than the church for one to use  their talents. There are countless Ppportunuties to be of  service through the fellowship doing such things as teach  ing Sunday School, visiting  the sick and lonely, simply  listening to others troubles,  participating in Bible study,  praying .with a group or an individual, singing, choir leading, playing the piano etc.  Church work has proven to be  exciting, stimulating arid satisfying to me. Through our fellowship I have found a real  sharirig one with another ^- a  sharing of joys and sorrows,  failures and successes. Through  this: sharing I have,discovered  in others and have learned to  develop in myself genuine  concern fbir one another. How  wonderful to know people are  concerned with your problems  and that you can help others  by toeing concerned for them.  The second read as follows:  As the young woman who  came, after the unbelieving  teener, I still went to churcih  partly for the iriusic but mostly, I think, out of loneliness  and a desire to be able to believe in the. church-taught  love of a Father-God. All this  period did was strengthen my  halbit   of   church   attendance.  As a young woman in love  I came to accept a God of love.  I was lying in the bottom of  a canoe where I had been  commanded to stay because I .  was a menace, arid quite happy to toe there. In a mood of  serenity and of oneness with  the moon and the stars and  the clouds above, I decided  maybe God did love. This was  quite  a  decision.  I had sturdily maintained  my own opinion about a diety  of loveless power against my  boy friend's implicit faith in  the love-power of his God.  The next, day we went with  our hostess to a summer service    in    the    little    English  Church at the lake, and I felt  for the first time, very unexpectedly," the concentrated  power of a number of minds  together,  seeking God.  This was a revelation! That  thoughts could toe powerful  enough to be a force which I  could recognize! A mind force!  The ultimate significance of  that discovery passed me by  at the time. Since then, however, religion has changed for  me from an affair of the emotions to an affair of the intellect combined with the emotions. This force I still look  for during a Sunday service.  Sometimes it's there, more  often it's not, but that could  toe due to my inability to receive.  It is worth attending many  services just to experience it  once again. The minister alone  cannot bring it about; it has  to be an unplanned bit of intense concentration on a common thought toy a group of  people who are not just sitting like toumps on a log intercepting sound waves.  To me an ideal church  would be one which trains the  mind to use the force of which  it is capable, in the way of  love. I often -wonder if we  could start training our youth  at the young trainable age, to  use their minds as I conceive  possible, they could remake  the world.  Childhood memories are recalled in the third, essay:  My childhood Sunday memories are of. the church. The  family pew. The voice of the  minister, my friends in their  Sunday ibest.  Church meant music too.  Beautiful organ music, loud  when pumped hard, also the  choirs' last minute practice  floating up from the basement.  A junior choir was formed:  They thought we sang like  little angels. We thought we  were like angels in our white  choir surplices.  C.G.I.T. was marvellous.  Leaders, fun, friends, a new  awareness of people, ideals,  causes, God. At camp, our life  and faith grew.  Leadership camp was an experience in depths Friendship,  study, skits, outdoor worship,  talk, play, made intensive joyous living.  Our church board gave us  confidence and support. We  taught Sunday School. We  were young leaders with ideas,  discussing,   probing,   learning.  An. interlude came when  church attendance was rare.  Work, friends, family, took  precedence. Why did I need  church?   I  had miy belief.  A friendly visit got me back  into the church. Youth workers needed, drew me back to  share his love with ycjuth,  searching for a light.  Then   a  new, challenge.  To  help plan women's prbgrarh's.  The first UjC.W. Adult study  groups       inspire       concerted .  thought and action.  My church fellowship has  giveri love all _ny years. To  love is to live. With faith in  Christ arid mankind to give  in  work and worship.

DAVID JOHNSTON,  Municipal Clerk.  _      _ Coast News, Oct. 25, 1972.  20th anniversary for Roberts Creek church  Christmas gift  On Sunday October 26, 1952  Roberts Creek United Church  was . officially dedicated by  Rev. H. J. Bevan with Rev. R.  R. Morrison assisting. Rev.  Mr. Morrison represented the  Vancouver presbytery and the  Home Mission board.  The Coast News account of  the event as reported in advance, in the issue dated Oct.  23, 1952 said that "earlier in  the year the congregation acquired a part of the Clarke  property in the centre of the  village. This included a small  cottage which has been neatly  adapted for use as a church. It  provides a large room for services, a vestry and a kitchen.  A platform has been built in  with reading desk, communion  table and space for the orgari.  The lighting has been attract  ively rearranged* Velour  drapes have been added to  the simple' furnishings.  "The re-arrangement of the  windows, a. new ceiling and a  complete relining of the walls  along with a sanding job on the  floor -with matting to toe added  for the aisle combines to provide a pleasant and adequate  church home for the congregation.  "The kitchen has been thoro  ughly cleaned and repainted  and is being gradually equipped by the Women's Association   of  the  church.  "The building has been re-  roofed and painted, and the  grounds tidied up. The work  has been done under the direction, of Mr. Funnell who  has given himself unsparingly  to the task.  "The service on Sunday af  ternoon will be conducted by  the minister, Rev. H. J. Bevan.  The Vancouver Presbytary  and the 'Home Mission Board  will be represented by the  Rev. R. R. Morrison, recently  of Kamloops. Mr. Morrison was  a few years ago President of  of the British Columbia Conference of the United Church.  He will preach the sermon and  lead in the dedication.  "United Church people from  Gibsons and Selma Park will  attend the service and tea will  be served by the women of the  congregation.  The present minister, Rev.  Jim Williamson during Sunday morning's services at all  three United Churches at Gib  sons, Roberts Creek and Wilson Creek outlined the early  experiences of the Roberts  Creek congregation.

Vancouver, to play  against. Argyle Pipers Rugby:  team. The Cougars, composed  of five senior players included  members from the junior team.  During the opening minutes  of the game both teams played  poorly with a lot of fly kicking. The much bigger Argyle  team soon took advantage of  play. The half-time score was  8-0 for Argyle. After several  substitutions at the beginning  of the second half, the Cougars  began to outplay Argyle.  The first (Cougar try was the  result of their efforts, and the  tempo of the game changed;  from this point on Elphinstone  dominated. Cougars then went  on to score two more trys and  made a penalty kick.  Coach Garry Grey felt that  part of the team's second-half  surge was due to the aggressive play of senior player Steve  Hill. Bill Sluis made two trys  and also kicked the penalty,  goal. Another try was; added  by Ian Mackenzie. Final score  was 19-8 for Elphi.  The boys thank the Argyle  coach, Mr. Pulsford, for the  extra effort put towards making the trip especially enjoyable. This included meeting Elphi at the ferry, showing a rugby film to both teams and afterwards going to Brockton  Oval to watch the New Zealand AU-Blacks vs. the B.C;  Rep. Rugby team.  The Senior Girls Volleyball  team last Wednesday travelled  to Squamish, one of four teams  taking part in the Howe Sound  Sunshine Coast Volleyball Tour  nament. Elphinstone was defeated in the first round (by  Pemberton. The Cougars played a disappointing game in  which they threw away advantages they held, over the  opposing team. Although leading 10-0 at one point in the  first game, Elphi lost 11-15.  The second game was also lost  to Pemberton.  The Pender team had no  trouble celebrating on easy  win over Squamish. In the  second round the Cougars won  15-1121, 15-12 over Squamish.  This placed Elphi third in the  tourney.  Although Elphi set and .piked much better than usual,  their serving was weak and erratic. Pender Harbour as winner of the tournament will now  play the North Shore runner-  up for a place in the provincial  tournament. Elphinstone wishes Pender's senior girls much  success in their next qualifying  round. The Cougar girls next  game will be against Carson  Graham, although the time of  this exhibition game is not.yet  certain.  The P.E. Department with  the co-operation of E & M  Bowladrome have arranged a  class bowling program. This  program consists of ten bowling sessions which should help  reduce the extreme overcrowding of the giym.  This year's senior cheerleader- are: Lita Allnutt, Joan  Blomgren, Debbie Bodenjham,  Lori Bowman, Janice Mullen  and Els Zuidema. Junior cheerleaders are Patty Allnutt,  Vickye Fearnley, Roxanne Hinz  Jenny Jorgensen, Jeri Mullen,  Gail Ono, Pam Sun_merfield  (Captain) and Debbie Wun-  derink. The teacher sponsor for  the cheerleaders is Terry Miller.

Remedial help  for children  Executive meetings for the  local Association for Children  with Learning Disabilities  have been held for the past  two months after a summer recess.  Already active in some  schools in this area are volunteer teaching assistants, working with the remedial reading  instructor. These assistants are  not necessarily involved in the  A.CL.D. group,. but their activities are followed with great  interest by the group, as one  of the aims of the A.CL.D. is  to obtain further instruction  for children with learning prob  lems.  There will be a general  meeting of the A.C.L.D., Wednesday, Nov. 1, 8 pjm in the  Sechelt Elementary open area  building.  The program will contain information on the proposed  brief to be presented to the  school board on children in this  district with learning disabilities,--arid information concerning the assessing of children  with learning problems being  carried out in this school district.  All parents and interested  persons are welcome to attend  this meeting and especially  those who are concerned about  some phase of their child's  learning ability.  Memberships, will be accepted at $2 and some information  pamphlets will be available.  For further information please  call Mrs. Celia Fisher at 886-  2362.

Coast News, Oct. 25, 1972.       5  Bylaw opposed  The public meeting to discuss  sections of Bylaw 35 covering  zoning plans for Roberts Creek  area rejected it. Close to 40  persons attended the meeting  in the Community Hall and  heard E. R. Cuylits outline  what the bylaw meant in the  field of zoning.  What was not liked by members of the audience was the  two-acre size as available land  if confined to two acre parcels  would put stress on an area  which would not be as suitable  for domicile development. It  was suggested that one acre  lots would be more suitable. It  would also be advisable to ease  the density of development in  the Lower Roberts Creek area.  The protection of Roberts  Creek itself was the subject of  discussion and it was thought  it would be safer for the Regional board to draw up stream  protection regulations as soon  as possible.

Coast Chiicotin cannot be a healthy and  happy area if Canda as a  whole is not. In fact this area  is affected more thain some  by the state of the nation's  health ��� we are chiefly primary producers and heavily  dependent on exports.  The fact that exports are at  an all time high as is employment (together with unemploy  ment) the fact that the Liberal government had made a determined and successful effort  to increase Canadian diplomatic and trade contracts  across the Pacific, the latest  being with China ��� all effect  the riding of Coast Chiicotin.  However, national affairs  may perhaps be left for consideration in more detail elsewhere. What of Coast Chiicotin itself ��� from Gibson's to  Bella Bella, to Williams Lake,  to 100 Mile House, to Lillooet,  to Squamish?  There have been steady improvement of conditions on  the reserves of the Indians  who make up 10% of this riding's population. There has  been some improvement of  housing and health services  on every reserve from the Chil  cotin plateau to the coast.  Nowhere was this more strik  ing than in the Powell River  and Sechelt area, where 100  excellent Crown Assets homes  and duplexes, modern and  completely equipped are now  being, barged to Sechelt and  Sliamjmon reserves from. Lad1'  ner.  Indian enterprises are emer  ging. Bella Bella has its own  boat repair facility and its.  own new supermarket. Logging enterprises have been  undertaken with Federal Ecp-  nomic Development furidis.  More important, perhaps, in  the long run, is that Indians '  here as elstewhere are running  more of their own affairs, ad?  ministering welfare, housing,  and other community affairs  in their offices on their Own  reserves. Of the national cost  of administration of Indian  Affairs, $40 million is now ad^  ministered directly by Indian  people.  Progress in establishing a  new Small Boat Harbor policy  has been disappointingly slow.  I'm; dissatisfied with this. I am  satisfied that we are now near  the establishment of a long  range program which will give -  fair treatment to all commercial fishermen in their harbors  and will also bring about a  massive building program to  accommodate the growing armada of pleasure boats in  Howe Sound.  Powell River City Council  has an excellent plan for enlargement of the Westview  Marina and1 these must , be  pushed.

'We need continued improvement of conditions on Indian  Reserves, continued economic  progress, continued transfer of  decision (making to the Indian  people. Looking outside as well  as inside our Coast Chiicotin '  borders, we need a better immigration policy. Too many  people are taking advantage of  Canadian hospitality under the  present immigration act.  In co-operation with the .'.provinces, who achninister welfare,  including the federal government's 50% share, we need  federal-provincial co-operation  to develop a system of aid to  the working poor, so that there  will be more incentive for people to get off the welfare rolls.  We need to continue creating jobs at an even faster pace,  we need foreign policies directed across the Pacific. Despite  the advances we have made in  extending our sea limits to prevent pollution and control fishing, we must seek new and better international sea law in the  United Nations. ���    ���  And it must all be done with  regard to preservation of the  environment.

Pensioners in-: the  Coast-Chiicotin riding who will  be voting in the election might  well bear in mind instances of  "sympathetic cohsicleration"  which the outgoing Liberals  have shown to Old Age Pensioners across Canada.  After awarding themselves a  $6,000 salary increase these  same Liberals doled out to peri*-  sioners the magnificent sum of  $2,881  To assist married pensioners  to-make an extra buck, one of  the Liberal cabinet, ministers  (from Quebec) dreamed up the  crazy stunt of dumping an ex-  convict into the homes of 'participating' pensioners as an Ottawa financed paying, guest.  But he didn't offer, to be the  first to' take one in!  In their 'Opportunities for  Seniorsi' program the Liberals  offered to finance senior citizens' projects providing they  did not profit from these projects. Yet, in.their 'Opportunities for Youth' and in an effort  to buy the youth vote, the liberals squandered thousands of  our tax dollars on many stupidly conceived schemes. And,  according to several press reports, this -was eagerly seized  on by young Americans entering Canada to escape the draft.  You can assume that our tax  dollars supported them during  their settling-in period.  Bear in mind also, that the  present Liberal incumbent,  Paul St. Pierre is in complete  agreement with all the above  Trudeau inspired moves. Remember too that Trudeau and  St: Pierre are in full agreement  that the maximum pension increase that Canadian pensioners can expect to receive with  which to cope with rising prices is a whopping two percent  per annum! Two percent on  $82.88 amounts to a hike up to  $84,53, a total increase of $1.65!  Big deal!  Compare "that with the $200  a month pension the new B.C.  government has awarded its  qualifying pensioners. When  you mark your ballot next  week, remember: these things.  ���E. BIRCHENALL.

It's a remarkable record of four years. First, as Vice  Chairman of Indian Affairs and Northern Development Committee,  pushing the Arctic Pollution Prevention Zone legislation. (In all  the 28th Parliament, the only piece of legislation which got a  unanimous standing vote. No wonder alt parties applauded him  that day.)  Next as chairman of the B C. Liberal Caucus and Secretary of  National Government Caucus, he was able to put his blunt and  forthright views into the decision making of the government party.  Next, as Parliamentary Secretary to External Affairs Minister  Mitchell Sharp, he spoke for Canada abroad. He has been Canada's  delegate on the Political Committee of the United Nations, has  headed the Canadian Permanent Observer group to the  Organization of American States. He has advanced the Canadian  interest in law of the sea negotiations in Mexico, Washington and  China.  In Brussels, headquarters of North Atlantic Assembly, he is  Rapporteur of the Scientific and Technical Committee, again  advancing Canada's interests in protection of the seas against  pollution.  He never lost touch with home. Weekly, during the sessions,  he reported to Coast Chiicotin in this and other newspapers.  During summer recesses he buzzed around the 50,000 square  miles of this mountain riding in his little red Datsun; talking in  his typical forthright manner, listening and learning. He sent out  Questionnaires and News Letters His office's communication with  the riding has been voluminous, continuous. This area has never  had such direct communication with Ottawa.  Is Paul St. Pierre a typical politician? Perhaps not.  His style is direct, forthright and free from jargon.  When he felt it necessary, he spoke and voted against  his own party.

The money represents about  60 per cent of all funds collected from the public during  the Society's annual campaign.  The Canadian Cancer Society is concentnating its energy  and its resources more and  more on support of research.  This year it will spend more  than $4 million for this purpose, bringing to $42.5 million  the amount spent on research  since 1949, the year of the first  national  campaign.

Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  We   have   received   a   large  number    of    questions    about  paying out on the sale of real  property.       T__e       purchaser  should of course have his own  lawyer 'handle the transaction,  including  the  registration,   of  whatever documents there are  to  be  registered in  the  land  registry office. The lawjyer will  not   register   any   documents  till he has the money to pay  the    vendor.    The   purchaser  should   pay   the   lawyer   the  purchase price of the property  in trust. The lawyer will pay  but   after   registration.   Thus  both parties are protected.  It is to toe noted that the  lawyer is acting for the purchaser only and the vendor  should seek independant legal  advice if he requires it. In a  simple house sale this is not  often necessary.  What if the/ purchaser  demands the return of his money  after filing of  documents  for   registration   in   the   land  registry  office?   Although the  lawyer is acting only for the  purchaser   he    does   have   a  duty to see that the vendor is  not defrauded, that is to pay  him   the   funds   in   question  upon  registration.  What  if  a  dispute arises, for example the  condition   of   a   Ibuilding,   or  some   repairs   that   were   to  be done to a house - or some  missing   chattels   or  stock  in  the case of a sale of a business?  The  lawyer  may  have  to interplead, that is pay the  disputed    portion   into    court  pending  a settlement or decision cbncei^iing the dispute.  Sometimes 'both parties want  the lawyer to pay out sooner  than  he  should,   immediately  after filing of the documents  in the land registry office is  not the proper time for payment out.  The  person iii the  queue   at   the   land   registry-  office ahead of the person registering   the   document   may  be registering some other document affecting the land, for  example,   a   judgment   or,   in  case of a fraud by the vendor,  even  a mortgage or deed  to  another.  The day following the day  the documents are filed for  registration the lawyer usually does a post registration  search and then pays out assuming of course that no in-  terveninng encumbrance has  appeared in the land registry.  Sometimes a purchaser who  refuses to take legal advice  will insist that the money be  paid to the vendor prematurely. Doesn't a lawyer have to  obey his client's intructions -  where no other party is Ibeing  harmed? Yes he does - but he  is entitled to protect himself  and in this case would require  these instructions in writing.  Then if something goes wrong  in the land registry office the  purchaser cannot "come back  on" the lawyer.  Sometimes a purchaser in  such circumstances refuses to  sign such a letter and demands  a cheque in his favor for the  amount to be paid to the vendor so he can endorse it and  hand it. to the vendor then  and there. Again, the lawyer  would require written authorization to so act, this time the  vendor's.  Usually the vendors are  husband and wife and. the pur  chasers are husband and wife.  Thus the signatures needed  may 'be from two or more  parties.  What if the funds were paid  in by the husband on behalf  of himself and wife as purchasers and they are to be returned? The cheque would  nevertheless have to be made  payable to -both husband and  wafe. The same thing would  apply to the vendors. For  that matter the funds might  come from another source altogether, that is a cheque  written by John Doe on the  letterhead of John Doe Ltd.  This does not mean that the  money belongs to John Doe  Ltd. - or is in any way returnable to them. It would be held  in the ordinary way to cover  payment to the vendors - or  in appropriate cases returned  to the purchasers who maj>- be  John Doe and Mary Doe. On the campaign trail  Harry Olaussen, the federal  NDP candidate for this riding  took time out from his busy  schedule to look at what the  NDP is trying to do for the  new voter in Canada ��� the  18 to 21 group.  "I feel," said Olaussen, ���'that  our party is best suited to fill  the gap in what these young  people consider old, outdated,  ponderous methods of government; totally out of touch  with the ever increasing  changes in present-day living  we meet everywhere."  As a new vital party, ready  to listen to the people of Canada and cater to their needs,  I feel we can identify with  this age group. Too long, a  hundred years in fact, have  we watched the Liberals and  Conservatives like a pair of  very tired, very old men, take  turns mounting the high-spirited, vigorous horse that is Can  ada. They never quite get complete control to let it rim wide  open in the direction that  would cover the most ground,  never using the beautiful coordinated, beast to its best ahil  ity, hut, just going along for  the ride ��� if it happened to  be going anywhere at all.  Tomorrow belongs to the  young and now; with the  vote (a very powerful one I  might add), they can head in  any direction they wish: no  parades, no protest, no riots.  Just get out and exercise your  franchise on October 30 ���  You can move mountains!  Democracy is a beautiful  thing. I had almost despaired  of it surviving the last few  years, and then in one fell  swoop the people rose up and  wiped out, on one evening,  20 years of what had moved  from bureaucracy to dictatorship.  Not once, but three times in  three provinces, they literally  stated: This is our country.  give us the life we should be  GET YOUR MAP  SUNSHINE COAST  at the  COAST NEWS  GIBSONS  63^ each  You can order  them at the  COAST NEWS  Scratch Pads  Rubber Stamps  Rubber Stamp Fads  Counter Cheque Books  Acco Fasteners  Time Books  Record Books  Receipt Books  Theatre Tickets  Typing Paper  Envelopes  File Folders  Carbon Paper  Columnar Sheets  Mimeograph Paper  Statement Pads  Adding Machine Rolls  Gibsons ��� Ph. 886-2622  living, and slogans stated  years ago were revived: A  government of the people, for  the people! The Liberal government's Dynamic New Society, died with the campaign  promises in the polling booths  of the nation. Trudeau's charisma tarnished, very quickly.  He promised nothing and delivered nothing, unless you  can count something so callous, as half a million unemployed; a vain attempt to halt  inflation, one of the greater  benefits of Liberal policy.  Last federal election, the  young people, that now have  the vote, were throwing kisses  and roses at him. If you had  the degrading experience pf  being unemployed, or even on  welfare, for the greater part  of the last few years, this  time' turn your backs on the  bally-hoo parade and march  to the polling booths. You can,  change the face of a nation!  Consider the past record and  time in this new youth for  choose carefully. It's certainly  honesty, and. time for a change  JOHN  PANKRATZ  CONSERVATIVE  Four growing.boys are usually calculated to give mother  grey hair but when you add a  very active federal Conservative candidate on the campaign  trail, a miniature Dachshund,  campaign secretarial work and  regular chores, there are very  few quiet moments for Peg  Pankratz these days. However  youthful Peg takes it all in  her stride and,, seems to  thrive on the hectic pace.  "I always have a full day  with all the chores for the  family," admits Mrs. Pankratz,  "But it seems that the more I  have to do the more I get  done. Often someone has to  sacrifice a bit with our schedule but its temporary and  after Oct. 30. its back to routine, regardless of the election  results. With John taking on  extra duties it is inevitable  that it has become more and  more my role to look after  the family."  Always ready to welcome  the unexpected visitor, Peg  admits that should the election go in husband John's  favor, she expects to be kept  pretty busy in Ottawa entertaining. "The front door will  always be open to anyone,  who wishes to see John," she  said. "And I can assure you  that anyone from this riding  who happens to be in Ottawa  will always find the coffee  pot on."  Peg admits that she really  enjoys visitors and is quite  excited at the possibility of  setting up house in Ottawa  and sharing with her husband  the many chores that fall the  lot of a conscientious MP.  As the pace of the campaign  starts to speed up Peg finds  that half her day is spent on  the telephone which never  seems to stop ringing in the  family"�� Williams Lake home.  "1 find that I am -getting more  and more calls from well  wishers every day," she said.  "It is amazing the number of  kind people who call up to  give us encouragement. Of  course many people call to ask  questions and when John is  away from home which he is  most of the time now, I have  to find out the answer myself  or pass the caller on to someone who knows. I am thinking  of putting the phone on top of  the 'kitchen stove so that I can  answer it and cook at the same  time. As it is I seem to burn  more  than  I cook".  Should John Pankratz be  elected there is* no doubt  that he will _i_tve the wholehearted backing of a very capable wife and it is doubtful  if an MP can be truly effective without such a backing.
