The main objectors were  those immediately concerned,  because the proposed highway  was going to be constructed  very close to their homes. Upon talking to the department of  highways arid. Isabel Dawson,  they did agree to alter the west  end of the cutoff to miss these  concerned parties. yX'y'  Now, the remaining objectors  seem to be a group not affected  in any way by the highway,  but a group who are using it  to get om* a political bandwagon.

It was a rough night for Social Credit candidates Hon. Isabel Dawson and Hon. lilt. Peterson in Elphinstone School  auditoriuw. Monday.  The audience, close t. the  200 mark, were polite to the.  two speakers, introduced by  Chairman Mayor Walter Peterson, during their talks which  expounded the virtues of Socred policies and: allowed Mrs.  Dawson ito make an explanation as to her part in the location of the relocated highway  from Langdale, through the  top of Gibsons down to Henry  Road and Highway 101.  At the end of the two speeches the audience felt that it was  time for a question- period, but  the hall was dlarkened arid the  movie extoHdng the beauties of  British Columbia, unwound itself from reel to reel.  This did not please the audience which started shouting its  dQspleasure more than once  during the first few minutes of  the movie. Finding this had no  effect stamping feet took over  but this dlid not have the required effect so the crowd, few  of whom had left after the  speeches waited for the end  of the film.  While the movie wfas in its  early moments, Mrs. Dawson  became surrounded1 by protestors who sought to question her  but she was? rescued framYthe  crowd and eased to the sidelines.  ' XX^^b��p!\ipae--irnoyie ended and  ttielights;%&r^^EB^j^iM^^;  or "Peterson announced a question   period   and   turned   the  meeting over to the two- speak-x  ers and audience.  The question which raised  the heaviest applause concerned Mrs. Dawson's part in the  highway location. Mrs. B. Skellett, (Pratt Road reminded her  of thie staterhent made to Mrs.  Skellett at a Redrooffs meeting on August 14 that "you  went along with the road1 engineers for the lower route."  Mrs, Skellett wanted-to know  who the engineers were and  that "we want names. We insist on having names." This  drew the heaviest applause of  the evening.  Mrs. Dawson wag reminded  that a tape recording of a meeting: with the Regional chairman and others clearly implied that the roads department  had nothing to do with the location and that the highway  had now become a political affair   (to them).  Mrs. Dawson failed/ to supply names. She maintained she  exerted pressure, and added  that she had given an honest  answter to the question during  her talk which brought cries  of Oh! Oh!  Another question concerned  Soames Point with Don Hoops  of Soames Point. He dealt with  the history bf the proposal and  enquired as to how the matter  now stood. Mrs. Dawson' replied that "if people do not want  cotaimercialism in the area I  will go along with that." Cries  followed: "Just like the highway?"  Mr. Bujan sought an explanation of the firing of a pollution official -who now claims  he was offered $5,000 to keep  his mouth shut. Mr. Peterson  replied his department had no  funds with "which to pay such  discharged! individuals.  Director Frank Wtest of the  Regional board posed, the question regarding,the relativity of  two pieces of legislation, which  allows under the Highways act  the highways department to  select road locations yet under  the Municipal act that right Sis  granted municipaliiities and Regional districts. Mr. Peterson  maintained that a court of law  would have to settle that argument.  What developed into a shouting match between a unionist  apparently belonging to a Law-  son Teamster union and Mr.  Peterson involving a labor dispute resulted in the edge in  the shouting going to Mr. Peterson.  A plea to have some religious observances returned to  schools brought from Mr. Peterson the remark that in view  of the situation in schools that  discrimination could not be  shown anyone sect.  Fred Holland displayed for  Mrs. Dawson's benefit a fistfull  of petitions against the road  and enquired from Mrs. Dawson whether she would not like  to have some of those people  vote for her. He said there  were 1,300 signatures on the  petitions. He maintained that  the location of the highway  wfas taken completely out of  the hands of the roads department and "you were the one  that took it" and turning' to  one side termed the whole  thing nothing but a real estate  venture. Mr. Holland Maintained the government and roads  department should heed public opinion.       ���  The arrangement for seating  the public was unusual to say  the least iThe speaker's table  was close to the platfomi arid  ttie centre of the auditorium  floor' was bare but for a table  toycarzfy amotion picture pro-^  _i��|tQl^i^?_ts^we_e linediiip on  both sides of the hall -and at  the back resulting in no person  beinig any closer to the speakers than 30 feet. Those at the  back of. the hall were quite a  dllistance from the speakers'  table resulting in a considerable amount of Mrs. Dawson's  speech being lost in the space  between herself and the public.  Hon Isabel Dawson and Honu  Dan Campbell at the Saturday  night meeting in Sechelt's Legion hall addressed 30 persons  who heard from both speakers  a straight accounting of what  the Bennett, government had  achieved while in office.  Mrs. Ada Dawe was chairman who introduced Hon. Isabel Dawson who when finished gave the floor to Hon: Mr.  CampbeU. Fo llowing the  speeches coffee was served and  a motion pilcture displayed.  Mrs. Dawson repeated a good  deal of. what she has already  said at various times on her  wiork almong the aged people.  She claimed no other province  can show the services the Bennett government had provided  aged people.  Mr. Campbell said he had  been working closely with Mrs.  Dawson and found she was a  100 percent constituency worker.  Mr. Bennett has not got all  the funds of government under  a mattress in Victoria. There  were various perpetual functe  set up to help people such as  the Indians, the housing program, pensions, home-owner  grant, welfare, drug grants and  others. He added that British  Columbia's government was  the only one in Canada that  spent every ndckle on the people.  He outlined, the "partnership  with individuals" program  which he said was set up to  help secondary industries and  stressed the argument that  there is no government debt.  The partnership policy was  based on a $50 million fund  from which money would be  loaned to secondarjy industries  with an interest rate of one per  cent for the first year, wo percent the second and so on rising one percent each year. 2     Coast News, Aug. 23, 1972.

A new opposition leader?  In the event of the defeat of Mr. Bennett's, government while  at the same time he is elected and becomes leader of the opposition, just what sort of a legislature would the people of  British  Columbia  have.  Mr. Bennett is at his best when everything is in his favor.  What would he be like when he has to take the opposite, tack  of those that govern? He is not used1 to this and lit may become  hard for him to settle in the slot he will have made for himself.  Having observed the life span of various provincial governments who have run up a 12 to 20 year term of office and  then faded1 because of the barnacles gathered on the hull* of the  ship of state, voters of this province will without a doubt discover after this election just how the barnacles become attached  to, a government.  Mr. Bennett ds fprcasti-ng his re-election. He may be right  but on performance Mr. Bennett deserves to be ousted. Here  we have a government which has lost seven* of its back benchers and three cabinet ministers. They did not desert the fold  because of the joy they experienced while a member of the  government or party. They, quit (because they were just numbers in a numbers game played by one man, Mr. Bennett.  As regards the situation in Mackenzie constituency most reports maintain .that Hon. Isabel Dawson will be defeated. After  looking over the situation in Mackenzie constituency one  can come to the conclusion that Mrs. Dawson, 'in view of the  close race in the last election, will have to gain a lot of support  to retain her seat. .     ' ,  Therefore this leaves a fight between the Liberal and. the New  Democrat Party candidates. Mike Blaney, Liberal is a first  time candidate. Don Lockstead has locked horns politically before and has naturally built up a following. Both are good -men  so perhaps the reader will have to make up his or her mind  as to who would be "the best candidate forrthem dn"the legislature.  One of our leading politicians many years ago offered the  advice that an election is like a horse race because you can  tell more about it the next day. So you better place youtvote then hope for the best.  Quotable quotes  Maybe the war on poverty should be extended to the  streets and highways. This country has more poor drivers than*,  any other.

The pupils  have raised about $100 every  year for the past ten to send  to the Junior Red Cross.  Here are excerpts from reports of field trips taken in  our own community:  I thought the outdoor science  day  was a good trip because  it taught me more about rocks  and   the   colors   of   rocks.   It  showed  me how  to  find out  what kind of rock I was looking at. It showed me how to  bust   the   rocks   to   see   what .  color Was inside. And. I thought  it was lots of fun.  '    John Nygren (5th Year)  Thursday  was   the   day   we  were   to   go   on   our   Science  Field Trip. We got on the bus  and   drove   to   Roberts   Creek  Park. The first thing we did  was find actable. Then we got*}t  out our worksheets. We spread  out to look for rocks. We went  back to our tables and did our  worksheets. For lunch we play  ed. kick the  bucket.  Then at  1:30   the   bus   came   and   we  drove back to Gibsons.  Maureen  Forsyth  While I Was there I learned  how to describe rocks, and to  identify   six   kinds   of   rocks.  These were quartz, calcite, pegmatite,    granite,   basalt   and  limestone. I also learned that  rocks   are   classified  in   three  groups. These are: 1. igneous-  the hardest to break; 2. sedimentary- normal to break; 3.  metamorphic-    very    easy    to  break.

More and more Canadians of all ages are finding that  bicycling is fast becoming one  of the more popular family  recreations, The Consumers  Association.' reports.  Bicycles can range in price  from a low of approximately  $40 for a -partially assembled  standard model to over $500  for the , specialized multi-  geared machines used for racing.

Don't get one with a  frame too big for you. You  Should be able to stand while  straddling the bike. A rule of  thumb for assessing the proper ���  frame size is your inside leg  measurement from crotch to  ground minus 10 inches.  Weight is an important consideration for bicycles as well.

They are much  lighter than the middleweights  but they are also more expensive.  Then there are the lightweights. .These could be called  the sports models of the bicycle ' world and may have 5  to 18 gears. Like a sports car,  these bikes require practice  and skill to handle. Weight  in a racing machine is a real  guide to quality. A lot of research and experience goes into producing lighter parts, but  lightweight bikes have to be  well cared for and may not be  what you are looking for. The  touring or recreational machines are generally slightly  heavier than the racing machine with the extra weight in  the components making them  more robust.  The multi-speed, lightweight  bikes are fine for an* adult  rider, but they aren't recommended for most youngsters.  Few youngsters under 12 or 13  have the strength and coordination tp properly operate  AGRICULTURAL ADVISORY FARM  OPfN FOR DEMONSTRATION OF  Winter Vegetable Storage  11 am. to 4 pm.

But this is  only part of the story of turkey today. B.C. homemakers  are discovering that turkey segments are not only thrifty  but filled with possibilities for everyday mealtime use. It  takes only a short time to cut a whole turkey into drumsticks, thighs, breasts and other pieces - perfect for  barbecues and casseroles. Turkey is ideal for fondue  cooking, too - simply cube and dip in light batter. And  that's only a beginning. Turkey is a year-round food  favorite . . . an economical and highly varied way.to -  enjpy a nutritious meat course.

Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  PROVINCIAL ELECTIONS ACT  NOTICE TO ABSENTEE VOTERS  If you are a temporary resident of this area, but are registered as a Provincial  voter in another polling division or in another electoral district of the Province,  you may vote " absentee ** as follows :���  Apply on polling-day, at the polling-station established for this area, for  a special (absentee) ballot. You will be required to take an affidavit that you are  a registered voter j and if you are registered in another electoral district* you must  know the name of that district. In your affidavit give the address at which you are  registered, but in signing the poll-book give your present permanent address.  If you are registered in another polling division of this electoral district,  you may vote for the candidates nominated to contest the election in this district,  using an ordinary ballot. Your marked ballot will be sealed in an envelope,  which will not be opened until your name has been found on the voters list for  some polling division of this electoral district; if your name is not found, the  envelope will not be opened and your ballot will not be counted.  If you are registered in another electoral district, the procedure is the same,  except that you will be given a special ballot, on which you must write the name of  the candidate* for whom you wish to vote, because there will be no printed ballots  at the poll for other electoral districts. You will be given a list of the candidates  running in the district in which you claim to be registered; therefore, you must  know the name of that district. - Before final count, the sealed ballot-envelope  will be mailed to the Returning Officer for the district in which you claim to be  registered, and if he cannot find your name on the voters list for that district, the  envelope will not be opened and your ballot will not be counted.  The poll officials will have a list of the polling divisions and local place-names  in the Province, and in many cases will be able to locate your electoral district  by looking up the polling division or local place-name corresponding to your  address.  It is not enough to give " Vancouver " or " Victoria " as your electoral district,  because there are several electoral districts involved in each city. The poll officials  will have a small map of each city showing electoral districts. If you are registered  in Vancouver or Victoria but are unsure of your electoral district, locate your  address on the map.  Therefore, to be sure your absentee ballot will not be wasted, know the proper  name of the electoral district in which you are registered as a Provincial voter;  registration as a municipal voter has no bearing on the case.  CHIEF ELECTORAL OFFICER,  Parliament Buildings, Victoria, British Columbia.  * In Victoria, and in certain Vancouver electoral districts, two members are elected, and voters registered  in these districts may vote for two candidates, and will be so advised at the poll. 4     Coast News, Aug. 23, 1972. $Qftj( WANTED  COAST NfWS CLASSIFIED ADS  Deadline ��� Tuesday noon  5c a word, minimum 75c  Subsequent Insertions % price  Box Numbers 25c  25c added for bookkeeping on  ads  not  paid one  week  after  Insertion.

BUCKLEY,  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa)  There are quite a few  annuals that will grow into  very large plants from seeds  sown outside. Some of these  grow like weeds, yet axe not  obnoxious. They require little  attention and in a short time  cover an. enormous space that  might otherwise hiave to be  completely landscaped. An annual sowing of these in an  otherwise unsightly area requires little effort or money to  establish and little or no subsequent maintenance. \  One such plant that immediately comes to mind is the  castor oil p_ant (Ricdnus communis). It has all the .above  attractions, but one serious  fault. Its seeds, which are produced abundantly during mild  late seasotnp, are extremely  poisonous if eaten. This problem can be overcome if the  seed pods are removed before  the seeds have formed. This  is a simple operation of merely  snipping off the flower stems  that form at the axils of the  leaves toward the top of the  plant ira late August.  The castor-oil plant is certainly very easy to grow, for  the large seeds may be started  in peat pots indloors in late  April amd transplanted at the  end of May, or sown in mid-  May in the location where  the plants are to mature. The  seedlings will soon grow into  very large plants giving a  subtropical effect, and they  will cast the most interesting  shadows on patio paving or on  _noder_- fiberglass fencing.  Besides the usual type there  are other cultivars such as the  coppery-leaved Zianzibarensis'  and the red-stemmed 'Gibsonii'  which also has a metallic hue.  The summer-cypress or burring ibush (Kochia scorparia)  will make a neat, two-foot annual, cypress-like hedge with  no trimming required. It has  Jight green feathery foliage all  s__mmer that turns to rich red  color in the f all. The seeds  are best sown in mid^May in a  location* -where their evergreen  like form and appearance  might' prove best. They are  adaptable to a very sunny area  and will make a background  for other plants. For a good  temporary summer hedge sow  the seeds in a straight drill  one inch deep, and thin out to  a foot apart when the seedlings  are large enough to handle.  The love-lies-bleeding of  amaranthus (Amaranthus cau-  dlatus) become very large  plants with red-green foliage  and long red _-ope-like tassels  of flowers. They prefer a poor  dry soil and are exeptionally  good substitutes for shrubbery  at the back of the borders, or  for use as temporary informal  hedges. Sow in late May, when  the soil temperature is more  conducive to the germination of  seeds of these tropical plants.  Other kinds of amaranthus are  the Prince's feather (Amaranthus hybridus Hypocondriacus)  which grows three or fowe feet  high and has reddish foliage,  and the Joseph's coat (Amaran  thus tricolor), -which has  blotched and colorful leaves  of bronze and bright red.  Cosmos is a showy easy-to-  grow annual that succeeds well  if planted outside in May. Improved cultivars offer different colors and earlier blooms.  These are extremely effective  when* planted against a fence  or wall in full sun* where they  may be allowed to grow up to  four feet high.  Larkspurs or annual delphin  iums grow much better if the  seeds are sown directly, in the  open ground during late April  or early May. They don't trans  plant very well but will grow  to perfection if sown- where  they are to flower. The seedlings should be thinned to a  six-inch spacing.  There seems to be a knot-  weed (Polygonum) for practically every purpose in the  garden; for ground covers, as  climbers, for pergolas, for  banks, for shade and for quick  (growth. The Orie_i_aiL _cnot-  weed (Polygonum orientale)  is one of the best plants for  covering waste places or for  background material. Its very  strong roots keep banks intact  atnd its bright-fl>n__ ;__.owfeirs!  igive a good display in late sum  mer and .Hall. It grows five or  six feet high and has bro^td  oval leaves up to three inches  long. The seeds of this annual  must be sown as soon as the  frost is out of the ground in  early April.

As I see it!  -By John Pankratz,  Progressive    Conservative  Candidate  Coast Chiicotin (Federal)  YOUNG PEOPLE THINK  "Why not shut down our  borders - stop economic growth  and enjoy what we've got?"  asked a youthful citizen during a recent high school visit.  Good question, somewhat  idealistic but clearly a* plea to  slow dowjn the economic rtat  race. Human satisfaction - ful  filnient - that's what it is all  about.  My old rancher friend who  never stopped -working a day  in his life could certainly simplify the problem. "Spiritual  values, you say? There's all  kinds of 'em in a bit of honest  labor, never hurt a man yet."  But that's the point. We all  want a better world, a better  life and somehow wie always  get 'bogged down in the mechanics That is one reason I  look to our first voters for  some help. No, I don't expect  crisp new'answers, just a clearer distillation of the problem��.  That -would. Ibe a good start.  Unlike their parents and  grandparents who were driven  by the big bad wolf, today's  youth is given that rare opportunity to think about the big  picture. Never has our nation  produced a better schooled - I  Teachers support  Don Lockstead  The Teachers' Political Action Go_x_mittee of the Sunshine  Coast has been informed that,  percentage-wise, the teachers  of this district are first in the  province in responding to a  call for a second days' pay to  be? used, for political action.  The money collected is being used to aid political candidates who have the best chance  in each riding (whether they  be Conservative. Liberal or  NDP) to defeat the Social Credit candidate.  5rh_^;po_itical action is'Mbeing  undertaken because of the Social Credit government's policies of cutting funds to school  districts for elementary and  secondary education.

Not only that,  they have learned the devilish  trick of spotting a phoney, and  not letting on. Sure, they a:ne  willing to be entertained by  a heaven-on-earth politician  maybe even accept a handout,  but the meat of the issue is  what really hits home.  That's why I have boundless  faith in the future. Our youth  wants a chance to connect, a  chance to earn their self respect.

Who are the first voters?  I'm talking __bout the thousands of young Canadians who  are between the ages of 18 to  24 including the youngest voters to ever oast a national  ballot in Canada. Statistics  Canada tells us that in the federal riding of Coast Chiicotin  alone, we had 7,688 first voters  on June, 1971. That's almost  20 percent of the total eligible  voters!

CANCER - June 21 to July 21  The position of .he planets  now indicate some tremendous advancement in the lives  of persons born under this  sign'. Whether at work or at  play, you should gain much  prestige.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20 - Feb. 18  Some slight disruption in business and social life might tend  to put you in a "slump" right  now.

You can't.  As soon as you have more  alcohol in your bloodstream than your  body can use up, it interferes with  your ability to think, act, and see  properly. Your reactions slow down.  You can't stop as quickly or steer  your car as efficiently as when  you're sober.  You risk the lives of yourself,  your family, your friends, and  anyone else who is unlucky enough  to be along for the ride or travelling  on the same road.  The next time you stop off at  a bar or go to a party:  1. Don't drink an alcoholic beverage  if you intend to drivei  2. If you drink, take a taxi or let a  sober driver take the wheel.  3. If you think you can drive as  efficiently after drinking as you  did before, think again - it  just isn't so.  If. If you excuse your behavior by  saying," It can't happen to me,"  remember that it can happen,  and it only has to happen once.

Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  "If the law supposes that",  said Mr. Bumble, "The law is  a ass, a idiot". The views of  Mr. Bunalble, the wel_known  character in Charles Dickens  Pickwick Papers are often  quoted. When- one reads some  of our statutes, one is forced  to agree, but what is The Law?  Speaking generally, the law  may be said .to consist of two  great parts: statutes and* case  law. statues, or acts, are passed by the Federal Parliament  or the Provincial Legislature  and deal with some particular  subject or body of law, for example the Criminal Code, the  Divorce act, the Sale of Goods  act, and the Land Registry act.  Case law gives us precedents.  Thus a case will be decided in  court- the way a similar case  has been decided in the past,  the higher the court the more  binding the precedent. Parliament or the provincial legislature can, in their own respective spheres of jurisdiction,  pass any law they want and  over-rule any case. Thus the  phrase, parliament is supreme.  Politics being what they are,  politicians are under great pres  sure in a democracy to pass  laws that the majority of the  electorate want or apppear to  want.  Some statutes are a compromise between opposing pressure groups, for example, the  federal Lord's Day act, and  the provincial, government  liquor act. We do not however  agree that Mr. Bumble's opinion* is correct to any great extent in regard to the vast body  of case law that has been slowly built up over the centuries.  Sometimes the courts are  wrongly blamed for the action  of some other government department. This is particularly  so in the matter of criminal  sentences. Now often do we  hear he only got six months  for���, the speaker mentioning  some .serious xrime. It usually-  transpires that the prisoner  was sentenced, to a *much  longer term of imprisonment,  that is, he got more than six  months, but he only served six  months. The parole board  would be responsible for the  remission of a part of the term  or imprisonment. This has nothing to do with the courts or  the operation of our legal  system.  Sometimes the express wish  pf parliament, specifically set  but in statute form, is circumvented. Canada has a mandatory death penalty for those  convicted of capital murder.  The murderer is solemnly sentenced to be hanged' by the  judge - but he isn't. Again this  has nothing to do with the  courts or indeed the governing  statute. Our constitutional  practice has retained the royal  prerogatives of pardon and remissions of death sentences.  In the long three-cornered  struggle for power that took  place over many centuries of  our history, between crown,  ndbles, and commons, the  nobles lost completely and the  commons emerged with the  lion's share of power. However,  the crown retained some substantial powers, among them  the prerogatives mentioned. In  modern times these have been  transferred to the federal cabi  net and it simply does what it  wants, ignoring not only the  law but also what one can only  assume is the wish of the majority of the electorate.  This is not an article for or  against capital punishment as  such, but is written to bring  into focus some ways in which  our government practices  bring the law" into disrepute  and indeed reinforce Mr. Bumble's opinion.

Thiis, of course  resulted in hardship to those  students as -well as increasing  bussing costs to the district.  Gibsons Elementary School has  been- cut 'b\y two teachers in  two years with no drop in enrollment.  For the past four years the  teachers have noted the steady  eating-away of the educational  standards iin this school district. Gone from the district  are the school psychologist, full  time director of adult education, elementary school music  supervisor, subsidized adult education, elementary school vice  principals. Cuts have been  made in secretarial help in the  schools as well as administrative time for the principals.  ���Classrooms sit empty- 'because  of. cuts in teaching staffs and  through cuts in the variety of  courses  offered.  Other cuts have resulted in  inferior equipment that needs  frequent repair, and a backlog  of (maintenance jobs to be done  because of increased) work.  loads./  In addition, this school district has been hindered fiinan-  ially from inaMng futitre plans  in the _d_u_atikmal heedis of the  communitjy, and has been forced to make patch-wbrlc, stopgap policies which in the long  run- increase costs.  But. the highest cost, the  testehers know, is borne by the  students who are being cheated and denied the kind of education they could have.  The teachers, therefore, are  seeking to inform the parents  and public of the dangers to  quality education in this school  district and of the harmful effect the results will have on  the children.

The advertising industry and your community Board or Chamber., 12   .Coast News, Aug. 23, 1972  New fabrics  have indivi  characteristics  In todays fashion whirl more  and more new fabrics are coming on to the market in response to the consumer demand for longer 'lasting, easier  care clothes. In many cases natural fibres such as wool and  cotton are being supplanted by  synthetic or man-made textiles.  Bach synthetic has its individual characteristics, which  qualify it for specific jobs. Often, the synthetics are better  than .natural .fibres, and cheaper to produce.' But to get your  money's "worth from them in  appearance and service, you  have to know how to care for  them.  Your best guide, of course, is  the manufacturer's label which  identifies the type of fabric  and usually gives laundering  or cleaning instructions. (This  labelling will soon be compulsory under the. Canadian  Standards Association regulations.) Keep the label and  mark it so you will know  which garment it belongs to.  There are several general  classifications for synthetics  which will be covered in, this  series of articles on their laundering and care.  Acrylic fibres are highly  versatile, combing strength and  weather-resistance with a soft  silky texture, and natural resili  ence. Acrylic fibre drapes well,  washes easily and dries Tapidly  requiring little or no ironing.  It is aimosit shr___kproof.  The'major: trade names identifying acrylic fabrics are  Orion, Acrilan, Ziefran and  Cresjan. .,.���.'-..  To launder acrylics, first pre  teeat heavily soiled areas by,  dampening, and rubbing them  with a little Borateem. Leave  for a feW moments, then hand  wash ��� -in lukewarm "water.  Avoid wringing or twisting the  garment.  If machine-washing, use the  Wash and Wear cycle, adding  half a cup of detergent plus  half a cup of a laundry additive such as Borateem. It is  usually best to drip dry garments of acrylic fibres, so remove them before the final  spin-dry cycle and hang on a  plastic hanger, straightening  jseams and cuffs.  If you wish to tumble clothes  'dry," allow the washing cycle  to finish. Set dryer oni permanent press or low heat. Tumble  clothes until they are dry, then  allow to tumble for an additional .enCrniniutes without heat  (your; permanent press setting  will do this automatically). Remove clothes and hang on  hangers.  As the name suggests, this  fibre is a modification of acrylic fibre. Modacrylics are marketed, under two major trade  names���Verel, which is primarily used for carpets, and.  Dynel, which is used for a  wide range of items from  men's socks to synthetic hairpieces. ��� '     .  Dynel fabrics should not be  exposed to temperatures over  170 degrees F. Wash on a normal warm cycle, and if ironing is needed, use only a very  cool iron, covering the garment  with a clean pressing cloth  first. Most wrinkles will fall  out if the garment is hung on a  hanger while still slightly  damp.  For spots and stains, pre-  treat with Borateem as you  would ah acrylic fibre garment.  Never use an acetone based.  cleaner on Dynel, as it will  destroy the fabric. Launder as  for acrylics.  50,000 Canadians in merged imion  GET YOUR HAP  SUNSHINE COAST  at the  COAST NEWS  GIBSONS  63�� each  The two largest labor unions  in the North American pulp  and paper industry have merged to form the United Paper-  workers Inter-national Union  with a membership of more  than 350,000, more than 50,000  in Canada.

Mr. Lorrain, 52, is a  general vice-president of the  Canadian Labor Congress, arid  was chairman of the unity com  mittee named six years ago by  the two union? to bring about  the rnerger;, .   :  William' Dodge, secretary-  treasurer of the Canadian Labor   Congress   welcomed   the  merger on behalf of the Canadian labor movement and said  that the solidarity of the new  organization should "serve notice to the corporate interests  that" our riiovement is riot prepared to stand complacently  on the sidelines and witness-  the dismantling of each bitterly fought-for right:" :  "The merger of these unions.  is an event of outstanding importance. It has long been*, the  policy of the Canadian Labor  Congress to promote mergers  of our affiliates which operate  in the same j urisdictional field.  If is therefore particularly gratifying to be able to* share  ���with you the tremendous feeling of satisfaction which this  merger must bring to all those  wiho share.a deep concern for  the future of the trade union  movement," Mr. Dodge said.  Three of the vice-presidents  of the UDPIU are Canadians.  They are Edward P; O'Neal of  Vancouver, James Buchanan  of Ottawa, and Gilbert Hay of  ��� Toronto.  Mr. O'Neal ad Mr. Hay are  former vice-presidents of the  IBPS arid PMW and Mr. Buchanan is the incumbent Eastern Canada Regional Director  of the UPP. .  HOME-OWNER  GRANT  Property taxes continue to rise in  communities across the country... but-here  in British Columbia, there's relief for the  home-owner at tax time, Relief originated  by your Social Credit Government ��� relief  that gives British Columbians the lowest  taxes on homes in Canada.  Since its introduction in 1957, the  Home-owner Grant has increased steadily���  from $28 that first year to a current level  of $185 annually. For home-owners aged  65 years and over, it now amounts to $235,  thanks to the $50 senior citizens supplement added this year.  This is substantial tax relief by any  .standards..: and it's only possible because  this Government has consistently practiced  sound financial management; the sort of  management that provides benefits of  every kind to all the people of British  Columbia.  On August 30th, show you support  the Home-owner Grant by voting for the  Government headed by Premier Bennett.

Spokesmen in a panel  discussion at the Institute's 67  th annual conference in the  Bayshore Iran said that the  new 'tax on capital gains serves  as a partial substitute for the  former estate tax. ~'-     I  At the seminar, conducted  by the Institute's taxation committee, members were told that  while, the new tax on capital  gains would obviously' not tak?  all wealth held at the time of  death, it would not generally  tax . all increases in wealth  which were the result of capital gains arising after January  1, 1972., This is because the  new capital gains taxy will  apply not only to gains  realized during a taxpayer's  lifetime but will also apply  to unrealized gains accrued to  date of death-  Further, the new tax rules  have eo-hpletely changed the  taxation of depreciable property passing on death so that  a deemed recovery of depreci-  atibn claimed in prior years  (recaptured depreciation) can  take place at the time of death,  thereby imposing a further  tax.  The accountants were warned that as the new tax systetm  matures and capital gains accrue, the incidence of taxation  on death wHr increase.  Participating members of the  Institute's taxation committee  were Roy E. Burrell, chairman;  E. Michael McMahon; Walter  A. Meyerhpff; George"A. Stekl;  David G. Sweet and Gary J.  Webb.

Surgery is still the best treat  ment for many inaccessible  cancers such as cancer of the  stomach and the intestine.  In the past few years, due to  new techniques and control ,of  infection by antibiotics, surgery has greatly improved the  chances of cancer cure.  In most hospitals and clinics  where major surgery is performed, pathologists examine  specimens of tissue either during or prior to the operation  and detenmine within a few  minutes -whether or not they  are cancerous.

Some of the so-called hecklers at your meeting also -were  very strong Social Credit supporters, in point one gentleman1  helped organize Social Credit  in Alberta which dates back  many years, and has been an  ardent supporter ever since up  till now.  The performance that the  people had to go through to get  a question period at your meet  ing was appalling to sajy the  least. Whejther they were NDP,  Liberal or Social Credit you  are still their MLA for the Mac  kenziie riding and they deserve  tb get -uxswers. If you are just  going to sit on the fence you  are losing your usefulness as  an MLA.  As our MLA you, have known  the wishes of the people (not  just a few businessmen) for  quite some time now and if as  you say the engineers prefer  the lower route, you as, pur  MLA Should have [gptten the  highways department;; ithe Vi!-'  lage of Gibsons and the Regional 'District, together to  thrash this thing out to the1 satisfaction of all concerned, not  jjiist a few.  ;-;.-:You stated that you have  come to this deefeiion on the  road to get it going. The peo  ple are not denying, that  this  road is needed and strongly  support a settlement on it so  that it can get started, to the  satisfaction of all concerned.  Taking iinto consideration the  very little support the general  public has received from you  in the last two years, I feel -that  I am unab-e to support you  any longer. ���"  ���DICK DERBY.  Dear Mrs. Dawson:  I just returned from the political imeeting you attended in  Gilbsonls and was very disappointed at the stance you took.  If you are supposed to represent the people of this riding  as you claim to do, I would  suggest that you made one of  the biggest political blunders  of your career when, you mtuade  the Gibsons cut off highway an  issue in your campai-gn.  It must be obvious to you  now that the feeling of the majority of the people you represent are in favor of Route C  which the engineers of the department of highways have  stated, is feasdiblie, and that  those who advocate Route A  are in the minority.  If you do not.wish to commit  political suicide I would suggest you withdraw from this  matter until after the election  is oyer when- the feelings of.  your constituents can be more  readily assessed. It would appear that the only��� people to  benefit from Route A are the  business and real estate section  of the communilty and as they  do not represent the wishes of  the majority one wonders what  Fire Alarm Procedure  To place a Call at Gibsons OR Area covered by the  Gibsons Fire Protection District:  1.

'"'���'X-xyy  By now I guess it is too'late  for you to back down on this  issue but I am sure the elec-  ion results will reflect the opinions of the,majority of the people in thisarea arid wlill show  that you took the wrong stand  by not considering the wishes  of the majority and by fbeinig  pressured into an unpopular  decision by the mayor of Gibsons and 'his lobbying friends,  r.

HIGGS/  Editor: There seems to be  an angle which the people interested in the Gibsons Cutoff have not seriously considered1.  ���'..-���.  The Sunshine Coast and the  (Coast Line from Saltery Bay  . through Powell River, Lund  and up to Bliss Landing is the  only area on the Mainland  West Coast of British Columbia  which is easily ��� accessible to  the public. The remainder of  "��� the coast' line is mountainous  and rugged, and deeply indented with long inlets' running inland for many miles.  So, the first mentioned is "the  area   which   would   naturally  - become developed; ^Xiy' ;  At the present time there  must be a minimum pf 30,000  residents between Port Mellon  and Bliss Landing, all of whom  use the Sunshine Coast Highway. In 1-0 or 15 years time  this populaton could easily fee.  doubled in number. People  have good pensions how and  are always looking for pleasant,  places to live in retirement. ;I  think that our real estate firms  will attest to that. We cannot  count so miuchi on secondary  industry as there is the prob--  lem and expense of ithe feiries,  'and also not the wide choice  of e-x_ployable people here  such as there is iri Surrey and  similar distotricts in the Fraser  Valley. i-HlX  Therefore, it would seeim  very foolish to sacrifice good;  residential,land such as is pro-;  - posed for Route A of the Gib-;  sons by-pass for the thousands  of transient people who regu-r  larly use the highway on ^SE  way to their homes farther upj.  the coast. There are approximately 2_,000 of these people  at the present time; this is riot  counting the thousands of tourists who now Use the road, es-J  pecially on the Circular Route  wh-dh is so/widely advertised  by our B.C. government Tourist bureau. In 10 or 15 years,  taking everything into consideration, think of the number  of cars which will be using  this highway.'  . It would seem reasonable  that we should conserve all  available flat, arable land for  residential use, instead of using it for a fast motor way, and  driving potential residents  from the surrounding area because of the noise and fumes of ~  fast' mioving heavy -traffic.  As the^ presently proposed  highway would go for a^consi-  derable way through the Village of Gibsons it would not  be a true cut-off, which spoils  the original idea. It would also  travel through an area which  could easily be included in the  Editor: The concern over this  controversial- highway by-pass  and:;the ^atenter.^  Mr. Gurney and Mr. Almond  in Saturday's/Vancouver Sun  as to the objection of all the  Concerned parties ovei* the loss^  of land due to thiis cut-off is  by no means factual. *  These people are free to  speak as they wish but only for  themselves or whom they represent but riot for all; landowners as there are quite a  nuniiber of us directly involved  that are not against Route A, -  and do hot appreciate being included in their overall objections.

He is as___ng the voters to  vote for hliim, not on- the merit  of his own party but on the  basis that if you don't, the NDP  will Ibe elected. This is not a  healthy approach- for the voter  to follow as it is notT conducive  to fthe discussion of the positive policies that must be introduced into this election.  - Mr. Blaney "was convinced  the voter has much more intelligence than Bennett gives  them credit for and, will not  fall for his slick Madison Ave-*  hue charades.  ���The. liberals in B.C. stand  an excellent chance of winning  his election and they will do it  on the basis of their own policies which are positive and  provide a real viable alternative to the deceitful patronizing  policies of the Socreds.
