Those interested in the prospect of sewers in the Sechelt  area should > attend a public  meeting at Sechelt .Elementary.  school Tuesday night of next  week.  This   meeting,    starting    at  7:30 p.m., will be chaired by.  an official of the Regional District board and will have pro-.?;'  fessional engineer Martin Dayton explaining what is involv���   .  ed.  The initial sewer system proposed would extend from West '-  Sechelt to Selma Park and even* '  if the meeting next week decided it wanted sewers it would  take about two years before  work could start.  The meeting will be more of  an explanatory venture which  will most likely offer caution -  on costs in yiew of the continued inflationary pressures  showing no signs of halting.  Norman F. .Watson, a former  Sechelt alderman in an appeal  to fellow citizens pointed out  that on Feb. 20 the opportunity  to view the merits, .of , the  Greater -Sechelt' Sewage Pro-  posal would be available..

"These teachers wish to be  classified as professionals, but  interested in helping children  they were willing to work at a  lower rate of pay as teachers  aides in order to give these  children the extra help they  need so much.  "If it is true that the teachers' aides' are no longer available to Gibsons Elementary  School, for the express purpose  of helping these children.

Douglas, President.  (The pupil-teacher ratio in  this district is regarded as  very . favorable. There are  some primary classes with approximately 20 pupils. It is  true that in one or twer schools  this' ratio has been exceeded,  but on a district basis the ratio  is among the best in the province.)  One letter received by the  Coast News reads as follows:  "I feel that both as a parent  and taxpayer, that the hoax  some teachers in this district  are playing on us and our children should be brought out  into the open.  ..."It has been brought to my  attention that on Friday, February 9, the teaching staff of  Gibsons Elementary School,  with the blessing of the Sechelt Teachers Association, did  harass and bully the teacher  aides that were recently hired  by the school board. At 1:30  p.m. on Friday, February 9,  the teaching staff did order  them (the teacher aides) off  the^school premises. These people were hired to help teachers  in the class room and to assist  the child having learning problems.  "The teachers for school district No. 46 are among the  highest paid in the province as  well as having one of the lowest pupil-teacher ratios in the  province. Our schools I know  are'among the finest and most  well equipped, but why must  we in my opinion be plagued  with some of the worst educators and trouble makers in the  province.  "The school board has pointed? out to us that it will cost  $174,861 in increased teachers'  salaries. This district employs  109 teachers; this would  amount to roughly $1,604.23 a  year for every teacher in the  district. A teacher is only allowed .under the Public Schools  Act, to teach five hours a day,  five days a week. With weekends,       statutory       holidays,  Every concerned citizen  should protest vigorously the  location of a bulk loading facility and port for the shipment of coal, anywhere in  Howe Sound. This recommendation is made by Fred Allnutt  President of Local 1119, UPlU.  Write your MLA, Don Lockstead and Premier Dave Barrett and protest in the strongest possible terms the location  of such a port at Britannia  Beach or anywhere else in  Howe Sound is Mr. Allnutt's  advice.  'Millions of dollars have been  spent building a superport at  Roberts Bank and facilities exist in Vancouver harbor. Surely these will serve to handle  the Sukunka coal. If not then  , Prince Rupert is the logical  place for such a port.  "For years we have been told  that Prince Rupert needs the  development to give a boost t0  its lagging economy. Now is  the ideal time to put a spur to  the development of that northern city as a major port. Not  only is it close to the coal  mines and other developments  but it "is approximately 400  miles closer to the Orient  "Premier Barrett's considerations would appear to be  mainly political and economic.  I would urge him to consider  carefully the most important  opinion of all to a 'people oriented party,' the desires of  the people who live in the area  and the irrepairable damage  such a port would do to tho  quality of life in and around  Howe Sound," president Allnutt said.  50 students in Rice Bowl  Fifty Elphinstone students  will participate in a rice bowl  to raise money for the UNES  CO club.  From 10 p.m. Saturday, until 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon,  these students, will eat nothing  but two bowls of rice, one per  day. Tea and coffee -will be  served, without cream or sugar. For those who have jobs,  an 1 honor, pass will be issued/  permitting them to leave, on  the condition that they promise not to eat anything while  they are absent.  Participants will have use of  the school's facilities, save for  the shops. They will be required to remain overnight at the  school,   and   provisions   have  been made for sleeping accommodations. Students will be supervised by Mr. G. Foxall,  Mrs. KL Rasmussen, and Mr.  G. Matthews.  UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific,  Cultural Organization, organized this event. The club is  only one of many such groups  around the world. There are  only five schools in B.C. today, having such a group, Elphinstone being one of them.  With the money raised by  fchis event, UNESCO may send  members of the club to Washington. Support is needed from  the community to achieve this  goal. Students hope they will  receive that  support.  This happened 20 years ago!  .The Coast News of Thurs.,  Feb. 19, 1953, recorded the following:   '-- ���'������';-   ���'-  On Monday morning ., Mr.  Rae Kruse, from Vancouver,  made his acquaintance with  the Gibsons Drugstore from  the inside.

Those consistent women  There is an aggregation of women on the Suinshine Coast  worthy of commendation of high order. Those women are members of the various St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliaries in Gibsons,  Sechelt, Port Mellon, Pender Harbour, Hal_noon Bay and Roberts Creek.  They are organized in their own areas and operate under  a co-ordinating council. They run their organizations in a manner described as efficient. They have been so efficient that during last year they-supplied the hospital society with $16,000 to  buy needed equipment.  This equipment has raised the hospital's status higher  than it would be if they had not set to work to improve things.  For this they should receive the whole-hearted congratulations  of .the entire populace.  In the days of the Victorian Order of Nurses if one reads  back.newspapers, also in the early Red Cross days in this areat  women had a hand in striving to alleviate, conditions for the  sick and maimed people. Appeals were made continuously for  help and usually the public responded.  Today we have a first class hospital and! first class aides  jn hospital work who operate beyond the call of public duty,  for which the general public can be truly thankful.  There was a time in Gibsons and possibly elsewhere when  a Red Cross box was kept available to be sent t0 wherever the  need required it. Today; the auxiliaries to the hospital have replaced them. While they do hot answer emergency calls they  have helped make such emergencies less troublesome by providing the hospital with necessary equipment.  : We need now to complete the picture, a governmental policy to organise and regulate ambulance services to bring our  hospital services to the point where: their efficiency will leave  little to be desired ��� except that bur auxiliaries continue to  keep such services at a high level.  Premier Barrett*s budget, u  Premier Barrett's government budget for the coming year  reflected the buoyancy of youth compared to the somewhat crotchety budget speeches delivered by former Premier Bennett.  The difference between the Bennett and Barrett budgets became obvious as the Barrett budget unfolded itself.  The Barrett method of budgetting is more open-minded.  He evidently means tb spend the nibnejij the taxpayers provide  and spend it on projects that make more sense than the Bennett plan of squeezing the taxpayer so <he 'canexalt Bennett and  the Soared party by amassing millions of dollars in a surplus  arrived at by over-taxing and under-spending.  It would appear that the shadow of the Bennett hand behind every dollar his government spent no longer exists which  leaves the lesser governments in a more happy frame of mind.  The Barrett efforts to ease the strain on these lesser governments such as municipalities, Regional Districts, school boards  and hospitals, is long overdue.

Nevertheless  Jerry born Gerald William  Dixon in the town of Nelson  37 years ago, is iborn of the  venturesome breed*  We checked through Jerry's  immediate forebears and discovered he came by the venturesome strain on his pater-,  nal grandfather's side of the  family, who as a young man  came out from the family  home farm, in Ontario, which  is now part of Malton International airport,, to join up  with Col. MacLeod's newly  mobilized Royal Northwest  Mounted Police.  As one of the original members of the force this young .  Dixon marched out of Lower  Fort Garry, across the prairies  and foothills to establish Fort  MacLeod. On a patrol to catch  up with Yankee whiskey runners, he was ambushed by hos  tile Indians from across the  line and received an arrow  wound  in  the shoulder.  Later he took part in putting down the Northwest Rebel  lion and. as corporal was a  member of the muchly-writ-  ten-about two-man patrol that  met a troop of American caval  ry at the border to receive  Chief Sitting Bull and the tattered remnants of his Sioux  Band, who took such a prominent part in the disastrous  Battle of Little Big Horn in  which Gen; George Custer and.  three Companies of 5th TLS.  Cavalry Regiment were .wiped  out, along with their flamboy- >  ant career-mad Commanding  Officer,  Yellow   Hair  Custer.  Grandfather Dixon served  out his years with, RNWMP  as staff sergant. Jerry and his  parents moved from Nelson to  Lethbridge. Here at the age of  16, the start of the restless  years began. It was in Lethbridge Jerry played on the forward line of the Native Son's  Junior Hockey team.  The Dixon family moved on  to Cranbrook and Kimberley  where son Jerry put in a three"  year stint with the Consolida-  .  ted   Mining   &   Smelting  Co.  Here he met and married his.  petite  wife Carmen.  By  this  time, even as his father an old  time railroader did, he went  to work on the C.P.R.  The Dixons landed in Vancouver in 1956 -where Jerry became intrigued with stock-  broking. With one of the local  bondhouses sponsoring him on  a special course, in which he  was one of three Canadians,  to pass and. receive a certificate and license of merit to  sell stocks and bonds. The  irony of this no-small-achievement was, that Dixon has  never peddled to the public a  single bond or share. However he had dabbled in the-  market on his own.  While in Vancouver, he also  qualified as a telegrapher.  This is also when the barber-  ing bit canie in. He happened  to see in a newspaper: For sale  Flourishing   Barber   Shop   in and trimmed down like a na-  LEGAL  NOTICE OF INTENTION  TO APPLY FOR  A DISPOSITION  OF CROWN LAND  In Land Recording District  of Vancouver, British Columbia and situated approx. one  mile north east of Earls Cove  on Sechelt Peninsula.  Take notice that David Vincent Bates, of 5590 McMaster  Road, Vancouver, B.C., occupation physician, intends to apply  for , a lease of the following  described lands:  Commencing at a point on  the shore line approx. 390 feet  from the north west corner of  Lot 2504 thence 90 feet S.W.  along shoreline; thence 300 feet  to the S.S.; thence 90 feet to  the N.E.; thence 300 feet to  the N.W.; and containing %  acres, more or less.

That was  for the Dixons so he took a  crash course in the tonsorial  arts and booked passage for  his family on.a Black Ball ferry for that.quiet and little  known resort town of Gibsons  on the Sunshine Coast. Here  the Dixons fell in love with*  the area and its people.  It was here they raised their  family, a boy and a girl; Warren, 15 in Grade nine, and  Jennifer nine  Grade  4.  Jerry soon became active in  local affairs: a member of the  Fire Dept. and the Kinsmen  and completed his second term  on the village council*  Already it's plain to see the  restless, venturesome urge is  working on him. Jerry has  sold his block of stores on  Marine Drive to Vancouver in-'  terests and installed the master barber Robbie Robertson,  behind his chair, while Jerry  found something, barber poles  apart, from the diminishing  demands for ��� haircutting.  He ' spent the summer and  fall working on a road gang,  operating Fiedler's heavy  equipment, straightening out  the kinks on highway 101 between Trout Lake and Red-  roofs   cut-off.   Here,    tanned  tive, he hunkered on the seat  of a Cat or Grader, which he  finds much less confining than  standing all day behind a barber's chair. It gave him more  time to think things through  for his! mext venture. What  wj.ll it_be? He has several irons  in the* fire," but is in no hurry  to pull them out- until they  are good and hot. One thing  is certain, the life pattern of  the Dixons is due for yet  another drastic change. For  that is the way of the venture  some breed.  f  N.

He  hangs around your gums, and  unless you attack him, he'll attack your teeth. So here's what  to do ���  Start with  about 12"  'of dental floss,  tie the ends to  form a loop and  keep about 1/2"-  3/4" between  your thumbs and index fingers.  Slide the floss down between  your teeth until it goes under  the gum. Use an up-and-down,  wrap-around motion away from  the gum to clean each tooth.  Make sure you  don't miss any  spots, it takes a  little skill, but  practice will  make it easy.  _\V  ATTACK PL AQUE  Then take a nice soft toothbrush,  and clean the crevice between the  teeth and gums. Slide the brush  along the side of the tooth at an  angle that permits the row of  bristles next to the tooth to get  into the crevice. Use a gently  vibrating motion to clean and  stimulate the gums. Then brush  up away from,  \\SSv       ���_?__?)     -the gum'-and.  �� V^_-_^*(_] K     you'll sweep  PLAQUE right  out of your  mouth. It takes  a little practice, but your teeth  will appreciate it, you'll cut  down your dental bills, and a  healthy mouth is the beginning  of general good health.

Your Sea Cavalcade Committee  Roads ferries, need upgrading  Sunshine Coast Ferry service and terminals should be  upgraded, Don Lockstead ML  A said Friday in the legislature when speaking in the  repiy to the Throne Speech-  He maintained roads and ferries which serve this area are  sub standard1 and have been  for many years. However he  looked forward to much improvement in these facilities  in the future.  In his remarks he said that  transportation is one of the  greatest problems and greatest challenges in an area such  as this, where land and water  intermingle so freely, and yet  transportation through the  waterways of our coast may  some day, be one of our most  envied assets, just as in the  islands of -Greece today travel  lers the world over are attracted to the Mediterranean  coasts, so will B.C. be justly  famous.  A long range plan for the  development of coastal transportation must now be formulated. Steps should be take-  immediately to upgrade the  existing ferry services.  :���': Ferry terminals where people will necessarily spend  considerable periods of time  should contain all possible  amenities so that instead of  this pause in the day of driving being a nuisance and an  unpleasant bore,  it could be  GAson Girl & 6uys  Cuttin' ��n Styling Centre  Gower Point Road  S86-2120  SUSAN & DILL  a time of recreations Supervised playgrounds, parklike  surroundings, good food and  entertainment should replace  the dreary surroundings of today's typical ferry landing  and the ferries themselves  should be as comfortable as  possible and should serve  goodi food at a fair price.  With transportation we  must face. the problem of pollution. Endless streams of  oversized,, near empty automobiles must be discouraged.  Instead encourage the lise of  public transportation by what  ever possible means. Encourage those who travel in private cars to carry passengers*  A simple example of what  could be done in this respect  would be If a $2 fare were to  be charged for car and driver,  with a 50 cent or 25 cent reduction for eadh passenger  carried, we would have fewer,  near empty cars on our roads.  He believed that we should  consider much higher vehicle  licence fees for cars with big,  polluting engines. It is time  that we took a lesson from;  areas like. Los Angeles and  moved to restrict air pollution while we can still breathe  NON-SOIL  SOIL  Sterile medium, a plant soil  that isn't soil but plastic foam  or peat, is a promising development for importers of nursery and floral products. Still  in the experimental staged  sterile medium shows promise  as a way to avoid the pest and  disease contaminations which  could be carried by soil  brought int0\ Canada with  plant shipments. Plants are  grown iii either sterile or plas  tions for 'about a-year, then  tic foam under sanitary cbndi-  shipped.   ' ��� .,��� .

Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright) v  A dead 'beat owes me $600.  I want t0 garnish, his salary.  What do I do? How does it  work?  A: See a lawyer. I presume  you have exhausted every  other . means of >coi_e<jt_ig  this debt. A summons will  have to be issued against the  debtor. Any attachable funds  (for example, bank account, a  debt, etc.) may'be garnished  without the plaintiff ^ (yourself) obtaining judgment  against the debtor^ ^except  wages or salary. You must  obtain judgment before you  can garnish his salary. Assuming you obtain judgment,  A garnishing order must be  issued against the; garnishee  (the debtor's employer) out  of the court registry and served upon the garnishee - all  within seven days before pay  day. The employer must then  make a little calculation.  -.. Let ���V.us assume the debtor  is paid $400 per month - $200  oh both the first and 15th of  each month. The debtor, if he  has a dependant (a wife or  child) is entitled to receive  $200 per month or 70% of his  salary whichever is greater -  in>, this case, $140 per pay day.  Subtracting $140 from $200,  we are left with $60 which,  including a stated amount by  way of costs, must be paid into court by the garnishee who  at the same time must file a  document in the court registry explaining why he is not  paying in the full $600.  A further application to the  court is necessary to. obtain  payment out in favour of the  plaintiff. This procedure is  not automatic and must be  gone through on each payday.  If the garnishee does not comply, he himself, upon a further application to the court,  by the plaintiff may be compel  led to pay the sum in question.  It should be possible for  you to enter into an .agreement with the debtor that the  employer is to deduct a certain  portion of his wages each payday and. forward it to you.  Gibsons Public Library is  open from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesdays  and Saturdays and from 7 to  9  pjn.  Thursdays..  RED CROSS  means  mm  People  Helping People  Coast News, Feb. 14, 1973  Tax structure  aim  A tax strudture which woiild  make it uneconomical for outside speculators should he developed to .protect Sunshine  Coast lands was proposed in  the legislature during the  Throne Speech by Don Lock-  .stead,. MLA, Wednesday.  "To date but a tiny fraction  of this beautiful heritage is  being used by the people of  B.C., many hundreds of for-:  eign speculators are discovering its attractions and these  foreign investors, realizing the  richness that must some day  result from its exploitation,  are moving in and have al-.  ready bought great sections of*  our coastal property, he said.  "Now is when we must  move swiftly to protect the in  terests of our own citizens  and preserve for our .children  what is rightfully theirs. Wittr  all the best intentions in the  world, if we are top slow, or  too timid in our legislation,  control of our heritage can  slip away;  "I would like to suggest that  careful studies be made to determine the best use to- which  each foot of coastline, each  mile of fjord, each island and  lake can be put and that legislation be prepared to guaran;  tee that the best use be made  of the coastal property..  "Land which is obviously-  bust suited for home habitation should be zoned residen-  ; tially,    and   in   cases   where  prime   residential   areas    are  ; {being  held   by  speculators   a  tax structure should be devel  oped   which   would   make   it'  uneconomical   for   long   term  speculation or' for sleazy de-  ..velopment rip-off schemes.  "Those not familiar with  Mackenzie Constituency might  find^it difficult to believe how  great a potential lies in these  hundreds of miles of. beautiful,  rugged, coast, much of it still  unspoiled "by the heavy hand  /^bf human development. /This  area has a vast potential for  recreation which is just beginning to be realized, but which  will unavoidably become one  day one of the top ranking  tourist attractions of the world  ''Those who are familiar, fas  most are, with the beauties of  the Sunshine Coast heed only  visualize this area multiplied  one hundred fold and reaching  for many miles up the fjords  and among the almost uncount  able islands between Vancouver and Bella Coola to realize  something of this vast poten-v  tial.  "There are not many areas  of this beautiful province so  favoured by nature as is the  Sunshine Coast, and in recent  years the communities of Gibsons, Sechelt, Pender Harbour,  and Powell River, have experienced enormous growth. I  am certain that this growth  will continue arid accelerate  in the near future.  , "We must, therefore, plan.  And in our planning, we must  involve those who are now  living and working in these  communities. In the years  that I have worked, with the  people of the Sunshine Coast,  it has become clear to me that  their local organizations- city  councils, regional boards, ratepayers' associations, and community associations are exceed  irigly well informed with regard to their own areas, and  that their proposals for development of their communities  make  good  sense."  Cougar sketches  Reproductions of black and  white sketches of a cougar  and a caribou by Victoria artist Pat Wright are a bonus  feature of the winter issue of  Wildlife Review, the quarterly magazine published by the  Department of Recreation and  Conservation.  These are the most popular  of the many sketches that  Miss Wright has contributed  to our magazine, said editor  W. T. (Bill) Ward. The 8 by  11 -inch sketches are suitable  for framing. 8,   Coast News, Feb. 14, 1973.  Jr  . (By MHOS PROKOPENKO).  Junior bowlers Sunday met  West Vancouver Junior bowlers in a return meet at the E  & M Bowl. The West Vancouver boys were tremendous  bowlers with a record of 200  for three games and with a one  game total of 223 per bowlers.  The singles boy from West  Van won by a big margin averaging 228 pins and won over  local boys by 80 pins which I  must say is excellent and  above expectations.

The  West Van. girl was in her sixth  year as a bowler where our  girl was in her first year. Next  year she may surprise everyone as she is proving she can  bowl. -  . 'Our girls team took one  game easily but 16st by 50 pins.  They were great. - AH girls'  averages were below the boys  but one of the girls was really  good.   ,  Last year we bowled West  Van winning easily but a lot of  our bowlers have left the area  and new ones are replacing  them.  Another meet is planned by  E & M Bowl hosting West Van  and in the making is a trip to  Powell River this month for  the juniors.
