MARINE MilTS WEAR  1585 Marine Drive, Gibsons  ^pen every weekday  and until 9 p.m. Friday  ; Grants provided by the federal government to the Sunshine Coast Recreation Centre  corrraiittee   have   been ,put   to  good use in developing the  larea set aside for ithe .recreation centre. This was evident to  about 35 guests at a picnic held  Sunday by the Recreation Centre ooin_m_ifctee.  The area along Clack Creek  has been developed with picnic  sites and footpaths with a minimum of clearing to preserve  the natural beauty and provide  a quiet, cool and completely  shad*ed area where one'could  almost forget that the-rest of  the world existed.  The footpaths are now being extended to Roberts Greek,  again with practically no clearing, just cutting through fallen  logs where needed, or, ih the  case of one or two large logs,  steps were cut into them and  they were left there.   -, ���;.  Further grants are expected  next year,  and it is hbped to  .-*!  develop a children's playground area wiJth various pieces of old machinery for the  children to play on.   -  The area is slowly becoming  more and imiore used as a picnic -area, as people discover  what has been done. Dr. Eric  Faetkau, chairman of the Recreation Centre committee, urges anyone who has not been  there to drop in and take a  walk through the area, to see,  what has been accomplished  so far.   ���   -  A'.-"-  up  announced for Scnool road  A building permit for an  $80,000 apartment setup on  School Road next to the main-  teniance storage area for the  village, was approved at Tuesday night's council meeting.  ' The setup wfill be in two six  unit blocks at each end of the  lot which runs from School  Road back to Wyngiaent Road.  Between the two blocks will be  a 60 x 100 foot play area. Work  will start in about 10 days  time.  Builders aire Reg. and J. R.  Gurney who cleared the land  some months ago. Each block;  will have six .two-slbrey resi-.  dences with three bedrooms  upstairs and living quarters below. Each" will have its own  garden and back yard. The;  rows of homes will run.froim  the two roads -toward-; the-centre of the lot with an* open  area an" the centre.  B.C. Ferries replying to council's suggestion for ferry scheduling to accommodate the in-  Fly fisherman  trolls salmon  Mr. and Mrs. Dan Kirkwood  of Falkirk, Scotland, were visiting the Sunshine Coast recently and called on Mr. and  Mrs. Ted Surtees, Halfmoon  Bay, Mrs. Thelma McLean, Sechelt and Mr. and Mrs. D. Richardson of Gibsons, who had  stayed with them several years  ago.   ������  Mr. Richardson took them  out fishing for salmon and  Mr. Kirkwood caught one but  two others got away after  breaking the line. Mr. Kirkwood is more used to fly fishing in Scotland.  PARTY OF CYCLISTS  A pairty of 25 cyclists reached 'Caibson^ Thursday of last  week shortly before 6 p.m. and  reimained here briefly, moving  ontowards Sechelt. They came  from Califotriia. and; ^yashing-  ton and joui_eyed bfr bus to  Seattle area from w_iere they  biked to Horseshoe Bay and  ferried to Langdale.  creasing flow of traffic stated  by letter that it was not feas  ible to have extra crews now  but the authority wiill see  what   can   be   done   for   next  year's operations. The letter  was filed.  The Sea Cavalcade committee thanked council for its $250  grant for the July event. The  Public Library for its annual'  $500 grant, also thanked council.  -Discussing maintenance requirements - for looking after  the '' new* sewage y treatment  plant Mayor Peterson explained that it. would mean a part  time man who might have to  make a daily check lasting  about one hour and at times  might extend longer if tests  have to be made. The plaint is  now in Vancouver awaiting  transportation to its Gibsons  site.  Reporting on--a meeting with  Elphinstone Aero Cluib members, Aid. Gerry Dixon said  the cluib plaits to prepare a  brief for the necessity of the'  airport. This would be sent to  the department of transport  along with the airport application for improvements through  financial grants.  Sunshine Coast Elves meet  On Saturday, Aug. 19, directors and members of the Sunshine Coast Elves club met for  their first general meeting.  'Starting with a short business  session which included a general  outline  of  the objectives  of the club, reading of bylaw  and the financial report followed.  Sandwiches and coffee al-  lowied a get 'acquainted session.  The membership now stands at  47 and there is room for others  to join if they so desire.  The club is a non-profit, non-  B.Cisa  beautiful  religious . organization registered under the Societies Act.  Dues are simply one cent per  day 'and one food item, per  month to be turned into the  depots to be arranged in the  late fall.  Donations will be put to good  use in helping the Elves to  achieve their goal, making people happier at Christmas. Food  hampers and gifts will be given to those experiencing difficulties during the Christmas  season. Anyone desiring further information can obtain it  from the Elves Club, care of  Gibsons United Church.  dee  Don't mess  it up  EXTEND FREE DAY  The Pacific National Exhibition board of directors announces that a special free  combined Children's and Golden-Age Day will be held Friday, Sept. 1. The day will include free grounds admission  Uint:_ 6 p.m. for all youngsters  and for all those 65 and over.  The day will include reduced  ride prices at Playland for  youngsters. For golden-agers,  there will be reduced prices on  the PNE trains that travel  around the grounds.  Advance pall  heaviest yet  Returning officer A. Manto-  ani, Powell River, reports the  advance poll at Powell River  and Gibsons totalled 652, more  than double that of the 1969  advance poll.  Gibsons figure was 205 plus  42 absentee voters and. Poweli  River 360 plus 42 absentee voters.  An analys's of the enumeration figures this year and the  1969 enumeration will be found  on the editorial page. It shows  a 2(0 percent increase in the  total Mackenzie constituency  enumeration and reveals the  greatest   increase   in   Gibsons  area with Sechelt following, as  far as the Sunshine Coast area  is concerned. The figures come  direct from the P-olling Divisions enumeration books of  1969 and 1972.  If you reside in the Port  Mellon to Sechelt areas, here  is where you vote:  Port Mellon, Community  Hall.  Hopkins, Langdale School.  Gibsons, Elphinstone School.  Roberts Creek, Legion Hall.  Wilson Creek, Con_m.unity  Hall.  Sechelt, Legion Hall.  There is also a hospital poll  at Sechelt.  Park enters fight  on highway route  Fred Holland, Gibsons municipal mai__tenance foreman,  who lives on Henry Road and  who strongly favors an upper  levejls highway instead of one  close to the present Highway  101, has questioned Mayor Walter Petersoni on the possible  e_i_hination of Brothers Memorial Park under present road  plans.  Mr. Holland is one of the  trustees of the park, and feels  keenly about the involvement  of. the,- park--in -the .present  highway dispute. Here is an  open letter to Mayor Peterson  by Mr. Holland: (See also editorial on Page 2.)  To Mayor Walter Peterson:  Sir: Isn't it about, time Mr.  Mayor that you start talking  about the planning that you  say you .have had under consideration for the last two  years?  As a trustee of Brothers Memorial park I sat down with  you recently and discussed  whether your plans included  the elimination of Brothers  Memorial Park. Your reply  was that if Park road was to be  the interchange from Route A  highway to Gibsons it was possible that the park would be  eliminated and placed elsewhere.  Is our park, dedicated for  public use, to be turned over  to real estate developers,, land  which volunteer labor cleared  off so the public would have a  place for recreation?  Further do you feel justified  in supporting the building of a  highway between two existing  roadways, less than 2,500 - feet  apart. This through an area of  the community which can become a fine green belt and resi  dential area. Your proposal  would eliminate over 100 acres  of 'good arable land capable  of producing much garden produce.  Now for the watershed. You  state that the proposed Route  C would ruin the watershed  for the -urea. Come now Mr.  Mayor, you well know the only  water at that source is a producing spring of 80,000 gallons  of water per day, originally  known as the Cannery spring.  Your   other   supply   is   piped  from Eng and Chaster Creeks  which can be piped under any  highway.  As to the pollution problem  on Route C the drainage of the  highway would be channelled  to two ravines, one on the east  and the other on the west of  , this location.  You make no mention! of the  B.C. Hydro __^t-o_rway direcr  tly aiboye this source, which  pollutes your water supply  every time it is sprayed, Nor  --cto^ryau? mention" an^^fK-^isti&g;  lease of _t gravel pit 200 feet  west of this water source on  the -watershed.  On enlisting the support of  Mrs. Dawson and stating you  are supported iby the businessmen and chambers of ooim.-*-  merce please inform, me as to  who are the businessmen. I  would prefer you to say real  estate developers.  In conclusion I wish to inform you that 90 percent of  this area is under the jurisdiction of ratepayers governed by  the Regional board and that  the Regional board should  have a far greater say thari  they have had, in the location  of any highway running across  that part of this area.  My sincerest hope is that  this Route A will never mater-  ial:ze as it will be outmoded as  a route to carry ferry traffic  before it is ever completed.  Fred Holland  Derby winners  are announced  Sunshine Coast winners in  the $25,000 B.C.

Enumeration up 20 percent  Enumeration figures for Mackenzie constituency show an  increase of more than 2,000 names with the Sunshine Coast  area from Port Mellon to Egmont showing the .greatest overall  total, something like 55 percent; of the increase.  The actual increase on the Sunshine Coast specifically, ranges slightly more than 20 percent of last election. Examination  of the table below reveals this situation:  1972  1969  Increase  (Decrease)  Egmont  144  112  32  Gambier Island  71  61  10  Gibsons  2351  1996  355  Halfmoon Bay  328  273  55  Irvines Landing  211  216  (5)  Madeira Park  636  482  154  Port Mellon  130  126  4  Roberts Creek  727  565  162  Sechelt  1524  12113  311  Wilson Creek  466  368  98  Hopkins  Landing  358  281  77  Sunshine Coast Total  6946  5693  1253  Constituency Total  20758  17485  2273  Sunshine Coast Increase ��� 1,253  Constituency Increase ��� 2,273  In the 1969 August election Hon. Isaibel Dawson retained  her seat with a majority of 186 votes. Socred Mrs. Dawson polled 5,687, NDP Lockstead 5,501 and Liberal Forrest 1,287.  The addition of younger voters who did not have the same  opportunity to vote in 1969 xnay have some bearing on the Sunshine Coast increase but not to the extent of the increase in  the number of names on the list.  Brothers Memorial Park  Brothers Memorial Park, comment on which is made in a  letter to the editor by Fred Holland elsewhere in this issue,  brings to mind-how Brothers Memorial Park, now a beautifully  cleared, spot for sports events, with a paved road (Park Road)  leading to it, became public property.  Some events concerning the establishment of this park occurred before the present editor of this paper took over but in.  May; 1955, a meeting of Gibsons Board of Trade was the subject  of a write-up ont the front page.  Here is the report of that meeting:  "The Board of Trade at its last meeting Monday  night started the ball' rolling for establishment of a  Cc_T_munity Park on the Brothers Memorial Park property.  "Mr. William Sutherland, president of the Board of  Trade was empowered by the meeting to form a steering committee for the purpose of furthering the plan.  This committee will approach all other associations, societies and organizations for the purpose of getting a representative from each to form a* larger committee to  ���arrive at some agreement as to what benefit the park  can have for the ccwnmunity.  "L. S. Jackson, one of the Jackson family in the  Brothers Memorial Park outlined some of the history  behind the park and said it was presented by G. S. Jackson, the eldest of the brothers who had been logging in)  this area for many years. He also added that he, Robert  Burns and Robert McNicol were trustees of the Memorial Park.  "The Brothers Memorial Park has a highway frontage of 247 feet and goes back some 800 feet and has a  slight  upgrade  from front to  back.  It would require  clearing and Mr. Jacksoni was of the opinion some cash  could be raised from the timber now standing."  Since those days, due to l<ack of organized interest the park  lay dormant for sotme time. When the Kiwanis club took it on  as a project a tremendous amount of work resulted from volunteer help in the form of laibor and machinery.  Present trustees of the park! are R. L. Jackson, Fred Holland, William Wright, Jules Mainil and Mrs. Do Wort-nan. These  trustees have resisted efforts at tampering with (the park in any  way.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Dayton & Knight were requested by the Regional Board  to make a feasibility study on  (bulk water for the Regional  District.

Richard McKibbin  A PERSONAL INSURANCE SERVICE  PHONE 886-2062 GIBSONS, B.C  With Gilbsons municipal coun  cdl now about ready to start  serious thinkJng about planning for the harbour front,  based on remarks made at the  last council 'meeting when Aid.  Gerry Dixon suggested a start  be made, the following Occasional Paper, now some years  old is presented, for readers to  digest.  It was written by R. N.  North and, titled The Changing  Location of Services in Gibsons  B.C. The paper was the outcome of several visits between  1952 and 1960 by graduate students from the UBC department of geography.  In 1941 the population was  about 260, and there -were 15  to 20 commercial functions including a (bank, a cafe and four  pood stores, all down by the  wharf. One church was there  but the other two and the elementary school were on the  terrace, along the road to Sechelt.  Housing, -apart from farms,  was practically all below the  terrace. Two questions seem  relevant; why were there so  many commercial functions relative to the size of the population? and, why were they  down by the wharf, and the  institutions up on the terrace?  The answer to the first is  simple and obvious one, Gibsons served a large area beyond the village itself. Firstly,  it catered for the small farming and logging community  living on the terrace; secondly  it was in some degree a centre  for the smaller settlements  scattered along the coast in  both directions. However, this  latter function was probably  of limited importance.  Certainly Gibsons was the  largest settlement in the area  and had, for example, the only  bank.  .,!��� However limited may have,  been the role of Gibsons as a  service centre, it certainly had  little else which could explain  the large number of commercial functions. Growing up as  a service centre in the 1880s  and 1890s, when there , was  more logging in the area* than  in later times, it never managed to diversify, to attract successful industries for example.  An attempt was made to establish a glue factory based on  local fishing, but this venture  failed before 1900. Fishing in  general never seems to have  been a great force in the devel  opment of this part of the coast  of British Columbia. Nor was  any industry based on logging  ever   established   in   Gibsons.  The -immediately accessible  area was cut over at an early  date, and the logging then  diminished in scale and retreated into the hills behind  the terrace. One industry was  operating dn Gibsons in 1941,  however. This was a co-operative jam -factory using locally  grown small fruit and selling  in  the  Vancouver  market.  Two reasons for the lack of  industry in Gibsons have been  suggested in earlier studies.  The main one is almost undoubtedly its location with respect to Vancouver, but important also i's the fact that  Gibsons had until very recently a water supply adequate  only for a residential area. The  possibility of improvement  was always recognized, but  the expense would have been  considerable.  The answer to the second  question is perhaps not quite  so simple and obvious. An  earlier study of Gibsons suggested that the school and the  churches were built on the"  terrace because land by the  wharf was scarce and probably expensive,, if indeed sufficient . remained available  when these institutions were to  be built. It seems doubtful if  this was true of the churches;  it certainly was not true of the  school, which was moved up  the hill in 1890, having previously been in a shack by the  wharf. When the move was  planned, gifts of land were  offered by residents both near  the wharf and on the terrace.  The latter location was chosen in order to even out the  .walking    distance;    for    three  groups    of    children    -    those  from   the   village,   those   from  the terrace farming con.mun-  ity west of the school, and  those from Granthams Landing  Granthams Landing lies on the  coast north of Gibsons, and at  that time the road between  the two went inland: The commercial functions were located  near the wharf for close proxi  mity to the greatest possible  number of people, and in order  to be near their point of supply  for imported goods.  Recent work on the early  layout of 'towns in the United  States, centred on prairie railway stations, has stressed the  close clustering of comonercial  establishments around the stations at a time when transport  facilities away from the railway were limited. Here dn  Gibsons we have the same sort  of thing, on a small scale and  at a later dale. Because of the  poor road network around the  village and . the difficulty of  getting a vehicle out of the  district, the local people did  not imake much use of road  transport, even iri 1941.  In 1951 the population of  Gibsons was 722J, and there  were about 40 commercial functions, 3 or 4 of them on the  terrace. One new institution  had been added, a church on  the upper road. This is perhaps,  more or less what one would  expect of a growing settlement  with unchanged surrounding  ci_rcun_,stances. However, the  basis for Gibsons' existence in  1941 was slim, and in investigating the reasons for its quite  considerable growth since then  we do find changes in external conditions.  The most important was in  the nature of access to Gibsons  from the outside world. In 1946  a small ferry, running between  Horseshoe Bay and' Gibsons  began to competeJ[ with .the  steamers. In 1951 this -was replaced by a 60 car ferry and  ' nmwWMM��M��*>*'Wm**W<WWWW*ll^yMW*  *+>**-**+^^+rr*+^+**+m^0+*m**ri*rt*+m*++t+*+*+*++r+��rm&+&t^0***^**,  _������*����� ���  ��� *��-     ���    .*    ���  '   B�� MUSHROOMS  B.C.

So popular is this delicate food that  British Columbians consume more mushrooms than any  people anywhere (about 3 lbs. per capita, the highest  figure in the world).

Whereas  last November 21, af a general  . meeting of the Pender Harbour  & District Ratepayers Association, Mr. Loffmark stated  that we must give the doctor  the tools to work with. In  other words the tools, i.e. the  medical clinic is of prime importance.  It is .also noted in the Cowan  letter that the persons best  suited to determine the needs  or the area as far as the medi-  cal clinic is concerned -were  the doctor involved and the  Regional Hospital District  working dn'. cooperation with  the officers of the British Columbia Hospital Insurance Service.  In considering this statement  there are two points to be kept  in mind:  1. Dr. Brand is quoted in the  Vancouver Sun last July 29, as  saying a clinic, is too elaborate  for what is required up there,  (as we understand that he  spent a few hours in Pender  Harbour he, of course, is well  qua_i_ied to know the area's  requirements.)  2. The Regional Hospital  board has been din cxHi_munica>-  tion with the British Columbia  Hospital Insurance Service  on th/s subject since 1968 and  from that time until the pre- ���  sent has met with procrastination and delay. We have no rea  son other than to believe that  the British' Columibia Hospital  Insurance Service wliill continue  this policy of procrastination  and delay.  These statements contain  grave contradictions and it is  our opinion that these contradictions indicate a lack of sincerity and we believe that your  intentions are not serious.  Mrs. Dawson we elected you  to office. During your term of  office we asked you and the  provincial government to establish the urgently needed  medical clinic at Pender Harbour.

Even if the facts  ���are neatly tabulated, -the plight  of over 250,000 Caanaddan Native peoples may go i_i_not_ced.  Average I_fe exipectancy iisjust  over 40 years. Income is less  than $3,000 for *t__e majority.  In housing, 75% of homes have  no sewerg or septic tanks. Education? Over 60% of the Indian students fail to reach  grade 8.  Survival and a way "of life  are at stake. And -we dabble  with statistics. Naitrow legal  definitions of equality don't  helj> much either. Even the notion that all Indians really  want is the chance to belong  to 'our' society is far too simplistic.  I wjauld propose a mu/oh  broader objective. We __ave to  work towards securing trie po-.  isition-, rights and culture of  Canada's Indans. This.can only  be accomplished by. continual  oonsultatio-i- wdlh Native* organizations. Little is done when  negotiations with the government deteriorate to open hostility on both sides. Confron'ta-  tion politics only serve to rub  salt into the wounds.  A new start is needed. Let's  honestly   examine   an&:   settle  falirly all outstanding disputes  involving    treaty    rights    and  claims. Let's provide _m_nedi-  iate financial assistance to Sm-  prove ihousinig and health care..  Tttiis goes.for Non-Status In-W  dians, too. We need to introduce liega! reforms and changes in offadial attitudes. This is ..  to  ensure that Native People  receive justice under the law.  Long :ter_n solutions through  education   can   be   developed1.  We need curricula and teaching programs that speak to the  way of. life of !the-Native Peoples.  Long term   development  of Indian lands is another pos-  sJlbility.   Again,   triaining   programs could be conducted with  ���full! participation  of  the  Native people.  One approach that has potential,  in imy opinion,  is organizing purchasing or market--  drug   co-operatives.   This   legal;-  entity hag* been used very sue* --#  cessfullly by the most independent lot of people in Canada,  the  farmers ant. ranchers;  It  not only provides greater control both in buying and selling  for    co-op    members,    but    it  teaches    business    lcnow-ihow  and management skills; I can  see  Indians  starting food coops as an examp'le.  Statistics only" measure history. In the in-between time  wie can give hope. We can  work ito enrich the lives of-  Canada's first citizens. We can  help to maintain a great culture.  ��������~"��~~�����������������������������������������������i�����M���a__��ra>-  "Lady in the Wet Suit"  Posters from the Vancouver Scene ��� Miss Bee'sj  Wharf Road, Sechelt.

(Continued from Page 2)  the steamers were withdrawn.  One cannot expect the car ferry  to have had  any   marked  effect in its first year of operation; recognizing this, we can  nevertheless    distinguish   two  impHcatitms  of the  successive  changes,   for   Gibsons.   In   the  first place its potential service  area   grew   considerably.   All  ���traffic   from   Vancouver   was  now channelled through the vil  lage,   which   consequently  be-  catttie   a   suitable   location   for  the business firms serving the  whole  area. We note for example the establishment of two  trucking firms since  1941,   In  the   second   place,   the   local  tourist industry was stimulated.  Gibsons had previously been a  popular holiday resort among  Vancouver people; now it and  the adjacent areas were made  much more readily accessible.  At the same time, the attrac-  Hons of the Sunshine Coast for  sport fishing and as a place to  retire to wiith lighter taxes and  rainfall than Vancouver, were  advertised   locally.  It seems unlikely that the  new stores noted on the terrace were established in anticipation of increased car traffic  along the Sechelt road. Their  lack of parking space and general appearance lead one to  suppose that they were intended to cater for the uphill expansion of the Gibsons residential  area.  In 1960, 1100 people were  living within the municipal  boundaries and one new institution had been added - a'Jun  ior-Senior, Hugh school on the  terrace. This served the whole  area from 1952 to 1959, at .  which time a new school in  Sechelt began instruction in all  grades except 9-12. Bigger  changes had taken place since  1951 in the commercial structure   of   Gibsons.  In 1960 there were 80 commercial functions, 20 of them  on the terrace a proportionate  change reflecting changed external conditions. Up to 1956  the village grew steadily as  the focal point for area traffic,  but in June of that year the  ferry moved to Langdale. The.  ultimate reason for this was  the scarcity of level land near  the wharf in Gibsons, Tradesmen in the main street complained that cars wailing for  the ferry cut off their business  and so the ferry eventually left  A side-effect up to 1955 was  to encourage new businesses  to establish themselves on the  terrace rather than on the  wharf.  Changes also took place in  local sources of income in the  period 1951-1960. After 1951,  logging declined, and in some  years it even- ceased; the Jam  factory closed down; and farming for local needs seemed to  have declined also - for example, the local dairy farm  went out of business. On the  positive side, the pulp-mill reopened in 1951 after a 3-year  gap and began* to expand output and employment.  Flat land is scarce in Port  Mellon and from 1953 onwards  some employees went to live  in Gibsons. This trend was  accelerated by the blacktop-  ping of the roads in 1955, a  . move whiich also helped to increase the tourist traffic. Also  on the positive side was a continual increase in the numbers  of people retiring to the Gibsons area, although many of  these seem, not to have been  very well off. However, according to local garage owners  most could afford to live in  homes dispersed outside the  municipality and own a car, so  of course could the Port Mellon employees, an element  with possibly a higher average income than was previous  ly   common   in   Gibsons.  Since both these groups had  access to the Sechelt highway  also used ibfy the tourist traf- ^  fie, and since down-hill Gib- '  sons lacked parking space, an  increasingly large number of  businesses began to locate on  the terrace along the highway.  The most (prominent among  them are a iSuper-Valu store,  two motels and two gas stations.  Future developments in Gibsons cannot -be predicted with  any degree of certainty, but  there are some important indicators. At present the  com  mercial group on the terrace  can meet only part of the  needs of the dispersed population. Fpr banking services,  hardware and clothing it is still  necessary to go.down the hill,  and the terrace businessmen  feel that they are prevented  by this from realizing their  full sales potential. Efforts are  therefore being imade to attract at least a bank and a  hardware firm to a new building to be erected next to the  Super Valu.  The downhill tradesmen may  seem to have driven away  their own business, but they  are, still well placed to serve  the local water-borne traffic  and   the   island-dwellers:   the  summer jtrade from this  source is still increasing. They  also cater for the non-car  using retired population. How  ever, several businesses near  the wharf have closed down  since 1956. ^  The function of Gibsons as  a dormitory town for Port  Mellon seems to have depended to some extent ori its proximity to the ferry. Since the  ferry moved to Langdale, employees of the pulp-mill have  tended to move there too,  rather  than   to  Gibsons.  This study has been concerned with one small village.  Is this the limit of its application, or are there points of  wider interest? One feels that  there may be. IWe have seen  in the case of Gibsons the effects of transport changes on  what is very much a type case  of a service town, one with  comparatively few complicating features'. It was founded  as a road-water terminus, grew  up as a service centre and retained that function without  diversifying.  Up to 1941 it retained its  early pattern of locations within the municipal "' boundary.  Since then its growth has  strongly reflected changes in  the pattern of transportation,  coming down in essence to  two factors - the introduction  of the ferry, especially the  car  ferry,   and   the   road   im  provements, which together  brought about a general increase in mobility in the area.  These factors, together with  the scenic attraction of the  area, the low cost of living,  the importance of certain occupations in the past and the  physical setting of Gibsons,  seem sufficient to account for  the present' location of services  within the village.  We can also relate this type  of study to the historical work  on- United States* prairie towtns  which was referred to earlier.  Such work involves the investigation of processes acting  over a long period of time.  Here in Gibsons we have the  same sort of processes, acting  Coast News, Aug. 30, 1972.     5  now and over a much shorter  period.

Now there is a simple  new rule to help you maintain  a proper safety margin. It's  called "The 2 Second Rule".  All you have to do is leave  two seconds between you and  the car in front. Learn it now,  and live.  Two seconds is the time you leave  between you and the car in front.  10 MPH     70 MPH  As the lead car passes a fixed point,  count "ONE AND. TWO AND." for a safe  following distance.  Two seconds gives you  time enough to react and  brake if the car in front  suddenly slams on his  brakes.  Whenever the car you're following passes a sign post, a  tree, or any fixed point beside  the road, count "One and. Two  and." before you reach the  point. That's a safe following  distance.  2 sec.  It doesn't matter whether  you're going 10 mph or 70  mph. Because the faster you  go, the greater the distance  you cover in 2 seconds.  2 sec.  At any speed  2 seconds is the safe  following distance.  Every sign post, every pole,  every tree you pass, is a  chance to check if you're  tailgating.  Tailgating is a traffic offence in this  province. It results in hundreds of  accidents, injuries and deaths every  year. Now there is no excuse. Next  time you're driving test The 2 Second  Rule.

The following version come  from the Halifax, Nova Scotia,  Chronicle-Herald. It was drawn  to the attention of the Coast  News by Eric Prittie.  GIBSONS, B.C. (CP) ��� They,  don't fire rockets or , beat  drums or recite speeches to  observe Dcxminion Day here.  What they do instead is fill  big, green plastic garbage bags  with helium and send them  soaring over the Sunshine  Coast, the popular name for the  Sechelt Peninsula in tourist-  conscious British Columibia.  While other Canadian centres probably celebrated in  more solemn* ceremonies, Gib-  sorts Went all out, loose and  easy, <in the fourth annual sea  cavalcade, salmon fry, log dogging and tugboat race.

It -was the auction on the  government wharf, where a  set of gold cuff links donated  by Attorney- General Leslie  Peterson of B.C. went for $1  and a pair sent in toy former  Montreal Canadiens hockey  star Jean Beliveau fetched  $3.25.   .  It was two-bit dogs from the  Village Store, a softball tournament, a mile-long race for  housewives, sunburned noses,  ice cream, cones, lost dogs and  a new wax job on the village  f.r_ truck.  Mostly, though, Dominion  Day at Gibsons was the world's  biggest tugboat race.  Tugboat skippers have been  oo_txin*g their workboats up  here for four years now, fat-  hipped deep water boats with  steel hulls and grumpy, sore-  throat voices and cocky little  coastal boats with soprano  whistles.  There's the 32rfoot Smutty,  owned by independent tugman  Joe Smith, who has been in  tugs 30 years in and around  the Fraser River n'ad the big  deep-sea tug Mercer Straits.  The pre-race plan called for  the tugs to warm up by ramming each other at speed ���  an insane, by land-lubber  standards, form of demolition  derby, then compete in a two-  mile, three-leg race.  That w'as 'the plan, but the  pre-race organization made  Dunkerque look tidy by comparison.  There -was no sign of the official starter for some time  and the word .went around  that he had lost his pistol. The  tugs milled around. A passenger on one tug aimed a high-  powered fire hose at another  boat, but he w'as hosing into  the wind and the stream blew  back into his face.  Finally, the tugs were off,  dodging half-subimerged logs  and each other.  ���Tugger won the sm'all boat  class and Mercer Straits finished in front in the big boat  class after an interloper threw  the race into disarray.  With the tugs boiling toward,  the finish line less than half a  mile away, a fragile 16-foot  cruiser with canvas top,  crewed by an oblivious young  couple, cut through the centre  of the racers. Painted on the  s-:de of the hull were these  words:  "Just married. If found  drifting do not rescue."

A person can become an alcoholic  just as readily on beer as on wine or hard  liquor.  3. Alcohol passes undigested into the  bloodstream which carries it to the brain.  It impairs judgment, reflexes, coordination, speech and vision.  4. Alcohol has no food value other than  calories; 95% of it is burnt up by the liver  at a constant rate. Coffee, exercise, or cold  showers cannot speed up the process.  5. People who use alcohol as a sedative,  a painkiller, or for escape should realize it  can be addictive and dangerous to their  health.  , 6. Alcoholism is the one illness that results in problems in all the major areas of  a person's life ��� physical, mental, social,  and spiritual.  7. There is no known "cure" for alcoholism, but most alcoholics have a reasonable chance for recovery.  8. A person who "needs" a drink is at  least psychologically dependent and can  become physically addicted.  9. A person who averages five or six  drinks a day is a "hazardous drinker".  10. British Columbia has at least 80,000  hazardous drinkers; of these, approximately 42,000 are confirmed alcoholics.  11. Only a small percentage of alcoholics  are on Skid Road.  12. Industry and business lose millions  of dollars annually through absenteeism,  accidents, damaged equipment and upset  public relations due to problem drinkers  on the payroll.  13. At least 50% of traffic deaths involve drinking drivers. If you drink, that's  your business. If you drink and drive,  that's everyone's, business.  14. A positive approach to life's problems and tensions is more realistic than  using alcohol as an escape.  15.

Those wishing to exercise their franchise are urged to  take the necessary steps required to be placed on the  appropriate lists.  Dated August 23, 1972. G.  E.   GIRARD  Assistant Secretary  Get your printing af Coast News  COAST  OTTAWA��� Laura Nader,  sister of Ralph Nader, wife of  a physicist whose name she  does not adopt stirred my laggard soft summer thought by  an interview with Robert  Strand of United Press International.  Miss Nader, if that's what I  should call her, is a professor  at the University of C_-__ornia,  a mother of three small ones  and an anthropologist. In this  interview, she casts doubts  upon the American system of  justice.  The American system dis not  ours, >but it is close enough for  argument, and Miss Nader has  some to offer.  The system is, she says, too  vindictive because it is based  upon an adversary system.. The  system does not seek compromise <ar settlement. Rather, it  is designed to choose winners  and losers. (It follows that the  poor, being usually the weakest  are usually the losers.)  She brings forth many arguments, in the course of this in- .  terviewl, to support her case.  Let's skip the details and simply agree that many criticisms  of American, Canadian, British  or any other justice have merit  After all, perfect justice, like  perfect unselfishness, love or  beautjy*, is art ideal which we  try) unsuccessfully to attain by  a variety of somewhat synthetic devices. >  What interests <me in Laura  Nader's approach, as she is reported in UPi, is that she deals  with a quite fundamental divi-  siton between Westeram European thought and that' of many  other parts of the world. As I  understand her, she advocates  concensus.  AU our systems are built  upon adversary practices.  Thie adversary system of win  ners and losers applies to economic affairs, where unions  and management * take adversary positions and seek victory  in coimbat.  It grew, I understand, out of  trial by coimbat in the mediaeval courts, where the knight  with the "toughest horse and  the longest' lance might be expected to prove the justice of  his case in a firm and unquestionable manner.  The same system applies to  the British parliamentiary sys-**  tern, which we Canadians have  inherited.. The system rests  upon the proposition that a  party called the Ins have power which they do not deserve  and a party called the Outs  must some day inherit this  power Ibiy the processes of natural justice whereupon they  will become undeserving.  Ins are contemptuous of Outs  and Outs are bitterly resentful  or the overweening and presumptuous power of the Ins.  Reading not only Miiss Nader  but also my mail from Coast  Ohilcotiin, I wonder if the ad-  versary system has it's roots so  deep in the modern society as  we assume. A surprisingly  large number of constituents  berate the opposit_bn parties  for impeding progress or for  "throwalng sand in the gears."  To persons operating within  the parliamentary system, oib-  structions from an opposition  party is not merely expectable.  It is fundamental. It is a requirement of the system. Nothing less" will do.  For all the accommodations  which may be made among the  parties, the Canadian system  nevertheless requires that MPs  in opposition parties* be critical  and that those of the government party be defensive. The  same tradition requires unions  to make vapid .statements  albout the Tolpuddle Martyrs  and management to expound  spuriously upon free enterprise  And in our courts, defence and  prosecution lawyers must retain and project that belief, dn-  SECHELT JEWELLERS  GUARANTEED  WATCH & JEWELRY  REPAIRS  885-2421  CHILCOTIN  credible to ordinary mortals,  of the utter righteousness of  their own side of the argument.  Possibly The public has become weary of these ritual  jousts between their hired  knights.. Laura Nader suggests  so. They want, she seems to  say, a quieter society. One in  which peace of mind for , ihe  ordinary citizen will have higher place than the victory of  this or that champion of this  or that cause.        ~  She notes that in Zapotec,  Mexico, where she conducted  some studies), the object of a  court test is not' to choose a  winner and a loser but rather  to find a compromise acceptable to all.

Unfortunately there, has been  considerable turmoil in. labor  relations this year due to the  fact that many collective agree  ments expired and new ones  had to be negotiated at a time  of growing inflation and increasing expectations. This situation occurred in a number of  industries, particularly the construction and lumbering industries where there were exten-  ** isive work stoppages. .The result  has been that many; man-days  have been lost, emipioyers and  employees have.had their incomes reduced arid the economy of the'province has suffer-  . ed.       ..      ���;-^":^   '.'���'. "'v';���'���'.��� ���'  I advertisbmeSnt  ��� The following is ah address  by Senator Herman E. Tal-  madge, a memlber of the U.&.  Senate Pnaiyef Breakfast Group  given at IWashington, D.C., IWed  h-esday, May 7.  Gibsons Breakfast Group is  an affiliated unit of the world  wide . International Christian  Leadership, Breakfast Groups  of which there are several in  departments of the United  States government,   v  Senator Talniadge opened  with a quotation from Romans  10:15: "'How beautiful are the  feet of those who preach the  ���Gospel of peace; and bring glad v  tidings of good will."  That thought was expressed  by Paul in his Epistle to the  Romans, it was many of similar exhortations as the great  Apostle went about the world,  preaching the doctrine of love  and goodwill.  Throughout all his teachings  Paul counselled brotherhood  among men and nations. "Let  all bitterness and wrath and  anger and clamor and evil  speaking be put away from  you." Ephesians 4:22.  My friends I suggest this  morning that we need such an  apostle of peace, who would  speak as Paul spoke, and in  \yihdm the people would believe. This nation and, all nations, indeed the whole world  desperately needs a voice of  reason.  -People today want relief  from the strife and tensions, of  the past quarter of a century.  People everywhere seek refuge  from war. They yearn1 for escape from the ever present  spectre of nuclear confrontation. They want to be able to  .hough-fully cobs'der issues  and problems that keep nations  from living side by side in.  peace. They want time to find  solutions that will benefit all  mankind.  Deadly sophisticated, modern  warfare has made everything  other than peace unthinkable.  But peoples of the world including Canadians who love  their country and cherish all  that it stands for, want most of  all, harmony and understanding among the people of our  lands. They long for men and  Wiomen and leaders from  amongst them who will preach  the Gospel of Peace, and bring  glad tidings of goodwill.  is just as dirty  as anybody  else's  . Ir> an effort to help resolve  labor-management disputes, the  government enacted legislation  which was designed to provide  assistance to the parties  through mediation services and  by means of compulsion in  those few instances where at  was absolutely necessary in order to protect the public interest. In a number of disputes  I personally endeavored, to  help the parties by getting  them together and. mjaking proposals ; which I thought would  be helpful to them. Unfortunately, because of the bargaining approaches made in some  instances, negotiations have  been most difficult and the  record this year has not been  good. Nevertheless, I wish to  assure -the people of British  Columibia that- eyeiything possible is being done to promote  industrial peace and will be  done in the future.  Iri an endeavor to improve  workmen's compensation bene-.  fits the Workmen's Compensation Act was again amended  this year and our legislation  continues to be in the forefront  in Canada. Among the major  irmprovements were: Removal  of the three-day waiting period; .increased pensions and  lump sum payments for widows; minimum manthly payments for permanent total disability increased from $150 to  $250.  Another improvement in  working conditions which will  became effective in the near  future relates to aninimum  wages.  The Board of Industrial Relations, which is the body having the responsibility for issuing and revising minimum  wage orders is conducting a  revilew of a number of its orders at the present time. Following conclusion of its hearings and the necessary research new orders will be is-/  sued.  These are some of the steps  that have been taken to improve the standards and working conditions,of many employees in British Columbia.  It is mjy hope that with the  satisfactory solution of our labor - management difficulties  and improved working conditions British Columbia will be  able to ^advance to higher economic ground so that all may  benefit. s  For your wedding photos  phone Peninsula Photographers .  886���7374  New pastor for Baptists  accepted the call to become  the resident pastor of the Sechelt and Gibsons Baptist  churches.

Mr. and Mrs. Erickson have  two daughters ages 14 and 12.  They are enthusiastic about  school and home prospects,* and  as a family they are excited,  about new acquaintances to be  made in the church and community that will be added to  their .present list of many  friends.

How do weJceep it that way?  Vtal!, the first step is for each of  us to begin to understand bur fellow  Canadians. They may live a thousand  miles away. They make speak a different language. They may be Canadians,  not by birth but by choice. And the  more different they are, the more  understanding they need.  That's easy to say. But how dp  we do it?  Well, if we want to keep our  country together, we have to understand that some Canadians need more  help than others. That we cannot solve  our problems unless we help a lot of  Canadians to catch up.  It's not easy to understand the  other fellow. Especially if sometimes it  seems as though he doesn't understand  you. Yet one thing is sure. There are a  lot more people who want to understand and want to keep Cdnada together than those who would tear it  apart. But it's going to take time and  we've got to start now.

Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Q: My Husfoand and I purchased a house. When we looked at the house it seemed iin  good shape and the real estate  agent said it was in fine condition for a 20 year old house.  Soon after we moved in, however, wie foiuid a large crack  in the cement wall in the basement', apparently we didn't see  the crack when we first inspected the house. Can we get our  money back?  A: Assuming .that the real  estate agent -made no representations as to the state of the  walls, you are out of luck; The  proposition buyer beware ..gen-.  i erally applies to real estate  transactions. Thus one must attempt to protect themselves  before agreeing to buy property for instance, toy having  someone who is knowledgeable  about house construction examine the premises beforehand,  Q. I have recently purchased  a house with a basement suite.  I was counting on the revenue  from the basement; suite to help  make the mortgage payments.  A week after I signed, the deed,  a municipal inspector came by  and told me that the suite was  illegal and I would have to  give the tenants notice. Can I  get my money back?  A: Probably not Did the realtor tell you that the suite  was legal that is to say, within  the provisions of municipal  by-laws? If this is not the case,  your action will be for damages. The amount of damages  win be based on the monetary  difference between what you  obtained (house without a legal suite) and what you had  contracted for (house with legal suite).  It' should be noted that generally when one buys a new  house (where he is the first  resident), there is an implied  term of the agreement that  the house be fit for habitation,  however, where the house is  not new there is no such implied term and the doctrine  caveat emptor or buyer beware  applies. The law relating to the  sale of goods provides much  more protection for the purchaser than the law concerning real property. Perhaps  some reform in this area is required.  Oops! Sorry!  Last week the Coast News  ran two Horoscopes, one in  each section of the paper.. This  should not have occurred. The  one in the second section  should hove been used this  week. So to straighten out the  lives of followers of Trent  Varro's weekly horoscope the  one used in the second section  of last week's paper applies  on this weeks outlook on life.

The judge gave  suspended sentence because the  accused was expecting a child.

Gibsons RCMP are investigating a series of mtiinor break-  ins in the area. A stolen, boat  from Sechelt area was recovered but the 65 hp. Mercury motor is missing.  Hon. Jean Marchand, minister of regional economic expansion, announces that the  federal and British Columbia  governments had signed an  agreement providing for a new  federal-provincial program par  ticularly designed to help people of Indian ancestry develop  ar improve employment opportunities in rural areas of British Columbia.  The program was announced  concurrently in British Columbia by Hon. Cyril M. Shelford,  minister of agriculture,. -who  signed the agreement on behalf  of the province.  Mr. Marchand said the agree  ment which expires March 31,  1975, had been madeunder the  authority of the Agricultural  and Rural Development Act  (ARDA), and was intended to  serve a more specialized pur-  ipose than-' previous ARDA  agreement's, including the one  signed by the tw0 governments  in Majy, 1970, and dealing with  the rural areas of British Columbia.  In making the announcement  Mr. Marchand said that representatives of the Union of B.C.  Indian Chiefs and the B.C Association of Non-Status Indians  par��t''_ipated. in formulating the  program..  The agreement covers econ^  omic development and social  adjustment measures, primari  ly for people of Indian ancestry, especially those living in  the more.remote areas of the  province. The program is designed to create employment  opportunities based on the es-  tabBshn_ent of comirnercial undertakings in resource utilization, or service industries, in-  /Cluding tourdist services, or to  improve the income level of  groups of native people already engaged in primary producing activities iri such fields  as agriculutre, forestry and  fishing.  Counselling, training and social adjustment measures are  also included ira the agreement  to ensure that people of native  ancestry will be able to take  advantage of employment op-  p(o_tt*__t_.ties. In addition, the  program -may, in certain isolated con_m_uaities, provide special assistance. ' for measures  which improve access to earning >and employment opportunities and significantly improve  standards of living for the native pecple living there.
