This bylaw affects all lands,  inside the village. bouhdary  and" provides zones ' for commerce or residential and other  types of buildings and occupations.  Copies of the proposed by-  law have not yet been released but there is a copy at the  Municipal Hall arid it can be  inspected during office -hours  from 9 a.iri. to 4:30 p.m. Monday .to Friday.  Adoption of the proposed bylaw toy council gives Mayor  Walter Peterson and the aldermen the opportunity to ar  range public meetings so that  all persons who feel their pro-  erty is affected by the bylaw  can express their feelings.  Council aided by Clerk David Johnston has arranged  three meetings for the. three  v sections of the .village. The  first meeting for the area lying  south of Winn road will foe  held Thurs., Apr. 5 at 7:30 pm  The second meeting is for  the area between Winri Road  and south of Highway 101, and  will be held Sat, April 7^at  2 p.m.    The third meeting will be  ,held April 12 for those on lands  on the north side of highway  101 to the Reed Road municipal boundary.  These meetings will all be  held in the United Church hall.  Aldermen check stipends  Forest fire pay lip  "Forms should be requested  without delay, completed in  detail as required and returned promptly," stated the chief  assessor of the conference, Mr.  J. D. Elander. "The early return of' these forms will enable us to expidite sending a  team of assessors into the area.  The Flood Assessment office  has already, sent out a set of  forms to most of ,;those who  vh-^r.wntten * to "- the1;, government in the matter. However,  quite a number of these may  not  reach  the residents concerned,- according to Mr. Elander, due to the lack of any  return   postal   address or inadequate  mailing  instructions  ion many of the letters. Deadline for return of assessment  request forms is March 31.  v During the past ten years  the Canadian Independent Adjusters Conference has proved  "itself qualified and experienc-  ed in the handling of flood dis  faster assignments for goyerh-  ���lent In addition, it is of note  that assessment of damage  carried but by this group ;has  been   comriletely   independent  jof  goYeri_oent'ari^  Jbeen  generally acceptable  to  ^government as well as to vic-  ; tims  suffering flood  damage.

The new pay /scale for; fire-  fightirig personnel does not in-  ��� . clude/lboard: It will; be deduct-:  ed from pay at the rate of $2  per meal.  In preparation for the, 1973  fire season, the B.C. Forest  Service has announced significant revisions in forest fire  prevention regulations. The  new regulations will apply to  all operations,  not just  those  directly related to the  forest  industry.  All operators will be required to provide weather instruments-necessary to deter-,  ^nune;^.Canadi^n, Forest jg^'  Weather Index? on a- daily basis, and im keeping with standards set by the Forest Service. The index will be used  to determine industrial and  other forest  restrictions.  In addition, watchmen will  be required to remain at work  sites for at least two hours  after* operations have stopped  ���when fire hazard conditions  necessitate   such   action.       /;  New regulations apply to all  industrial camps, and the terrii  industrial operations includes  any logging, : lumbering, saw-  milling, land clearing, engineer  ing cdnstructiOn1 or industrial  activity utilizingmanpower or  equipnient'/I* y^ /'i-^'l,  -  25-YEAR   presentations   were  *   made   Friday   night   to   Bob  f Wilson   (left)   and. John Wil-  )- son (right) by Fire Chief Dick  Ranniger,   in   appreciation" of  ������ 25 years continuous service to  Gibsons   Volunteer   Fire   Department. (See story page 7.)  Deer killers  will be shot  Beachcombers on way back  CBC's \ Beachcoriiber television, unit , to Gibsons will  open soori its third season for  the f_riling; of this sixth most  popular North-American T.V.  serial. , ""���  Dave Gordon, who heads up  the Beachcomber stage crew  says additional members of  the advance gang will arrive  here/April 12 followed by all  members of the cast on April  26. -,-/'.  One of the early episodes to  go in production under the  title of Molly's Birthday will  feature a realistic fire scene  in which John Smith, /heading  up Gibsons Fire1 Dept will be  called -out to quell a- fire in the  kitchen of Molly's restaurant  The blaze is a flash-fire in the  kitchen   where   the    younger  members, were engaged in get  ting Molly's breakfast in bed.  This sequence, along with 12  other episodes to make up the  current April to December  shooting season will have more  punch; arid aCtiph in their plots.  Practically all members of  the Beachcomber cast, headed  by Bruno Gerossi will again  be^back on; the job as well as  the technical crew.  Meantime, Bob Gray, the  Beachcombers production man  ager, is still on the lookout  for suitable seven-month accommodation for his unit arid  would appreciate a call at  886-781H from ariyone who  has a house or suite available  for rent during this Aprils to  December,. period.  Open warfare has been declared on roaming dogs that  hunt'and kill deer. An adverts -tisement i;o this effect' appears  ^on^ran inside^ page-m. wnfch  the director of "the fish and  wildlife branch of the Department of Recreation and Conservation lays down the rules.  The advertisement states  that by authority of the Wildlife act any dog found running  at large and harrassing deer  will be destroyed between the  dates of March 24 arid Sept. 8.  The area covered ranges  from MacNabb Creek to Eg-  moht which takes in the! whole  of the Sunshine Coast bordering on water.  According to wildlife branch  officials the slaughter- of deer  by rpafriing dogs particularly  in .the /area Sechelt to Port  Mellpri where the dog population is the greatest, has become serious. The officials explained that all a pack of dogs  requires is a leader and they  are off on the rampage among  wildlife.  The term any dog apparently means a dog license issued  by municipalities or the RCMP  will not protect them.  Having looked over the  scale of stipend received by  other mayors arid aldermen in  municipal; areas equal to Gib-/  sons, the mayor and aldermen at their meeting Tuesday  of last week decided they  were due for a raise:  Such increases were blocked  by the previous provincial  government and lifted by the  present government Sechelt's  mayor and aldermen are also  considering an increase. They'  now get $200 for aldermen  and. $500 for mayor, one of  the lowest rates in the province.  Gibsons Mayor Wally Peterson, for   1972   received   $1,278  to  trvi*I> ;y  and the aldermen $850. By bylaw at last week's meeting  they increased their/stipend  to $2,000 for the mayor; and  $1,250 for aldermen.  This was done after checking over the amounts paid to  municipal officials in areas of  similar size in the province.  Growth in both municipalities  has resulted in an increase in  the amount of time all officials  have to allot to municipal affairs, resulting in an increase  in the; riun_ber; of meetings  other than regular meetings.  Inflation over the last several  years has reduced the value  of the amounts each official  now receives.  A water main plus underground telephone lines will be  installed along Cowrie street  under a joint plan with the  Regional District water board  and B.C. Telephones.  This was announced at last  week's Sechelt council meeting  by Mayor Ben Lang when reporting oil his meeting with the  Regional District water board.  The arrangement includes  black-topping of the trenched  area by arrangement with  both. (  Alderman Harold Nelson  said recreation committee officials will visit Squamish to  discover how they handle logger sports at their celebration  so that such sports could be  handled during the two-day  festival planned for Sechelt.  The provisional budget was  rechecked     so     cost    .figures  would be closer to reality in  view of the wider demands being made on council operations.  Aldermen were given copies  of the new subdivision bylaw  for study so they can report on  it at the next meeting. A culvert installation bylaw was  given second and third readings.  Correspondence with the  provincial highways department concerned the need for  planning and work to be done  on. the intersection of Wharf  and Dolphin streets. This is a,  bad traffic corner, council decided, which should be looked  into  carefully. ^  Trees which had been planted last year were progressing  nicely, Aid. Bernel Gordon reported adding that some will  have to be replaced due to  drouth   killing   them.  Practice tire       Groups help at service  ��� Formation of a parent organization to discuss education:  al' ; problems   affectiiig   local  ��� students .& planned following  a meeting Of parents and teachers last week.  ��   A: further meeting will be  : held on a date to be announced with the intention of esta-  ��� Wishing a continuing organization? "The '-'meeting 'decided it  would be worthwhile to give  parents and teachers an opportunity to get together for  discussion.  An. education,forum will be  arranged for sbriietime towards  the end of March. The general concensus of the meeting  was that parents and teachers  should be better informed-. It, is  hoped; that a speaker r will be  avail able for the coin_ig?riieet-  ing.       .���  Monday night's fire call followed by a burst of reflected  flame that made it look as  though half the village was  ablaze was just one of those  practice fires Gibsons firemen  have to obtain experience for  the younger firemen.  The scene of the blaze was  the old Taffy JOnes home opposite the Health Centre on  South Fletcher Road. Fire  Chief Dick Ranniger and his  firemen had no trouble keeping the fire controlled and  completed! their job without  mishap.  COACHES WANTED  Now that the season for  outdbor sport is approaching,  Gibsons Athletic club is preparing for action and wants to  line up coaches.  These coaches will be needed . for boys and girls softball  teams.;If you,are able to take  over coaching phone Etrio  White at 886-7087 or Irene  DeWitt at 886-2561.  With the theme Alert in  Our Time, the World Day of  Prayer. at Calvary Baptist  Church, Gibsons, women from  various churches who gathered for the service were welcomed by Mrs. S. Spain.  Members of different groups  participated by giving Scripture passages and responsive  readings.  The pianist was Mrs. A. Peters. Mrs. Lee sang a solo,  and gospel songs were provided by a trio, Mrs. M. Epp,  Mrs. M. Erickson and Mrs. E.  Cooper.  Mrs. N. Miller accompanied  the vocal sextette, Mrs. A. Peters, Mrs. D. McQueen^ Mrs.  M. Epp, Mrs. B. McQuarry,  Mrs. S. Spain and Mrs. M.  Erickson, whose beautiful rendition of sacred numbers was  greatly appreciated.  Mrs. O. Horton brought a  relevant message for our time,  showing how up-to-date and  applicable God's Word is for  today.  An   offering   was   received  which will be allocated to promote the gospel and meet human needs, with special emphasis on education projects  and Christian literature.  Following the service refreshments were provided  along with pleasant fellowship  How human can these things  get.   It's got a screw loose. 2     Coast News, Mar. 14, 1973.

Land and controls  British Columbia Cattlemen's association while denying the  rumor they intend to ride horseback into the legislative chambers in Victoria as a protest to BiH 42, announces it will support the bill but not the methods proposed in their implementation.  The Peace River Agricultural Society also favors the bill but  not the methods proposed. There are no doubt other organizations and individuals of the same opinion.  Enchroachment of government into the domain of land has up  to now been limited to Crown property and minor regulations  in the public area.  There is good reason for governments becoming involved.  However involvement is not the issue. The method Of involvement is what is questioned. The cattlemen would prefer to see  in Bill 42 the right to appeal coriimission decisions, compensation for confiscated lands and public hearings for designating  land use. These objectives sound reasonable.  There are quite a number of things involved in the government decision to enter the field, of land control. The chief item  would be agricultural. Second would be population expansion  and a third inflation^ Wealthy people hedge their wealth in  gold, diamonds or real estate. The growth of wealthy real estate operations in the east speaks for itself.  The problem involving population can be deduced from the  fact that the Toronto Real Estate board has offered to organize  a meeting among representatives of-'the'-'building trades and  the three levels of government to discuss how to get more residential land on to the Metropolitan Toronto market. It is no  stretch of the imagination to suggest the getting of-more residential land is the situation in the Greater Vancouver part of  this province.; This could also be applied to other cities.  There is in Vancouver the Urban Development Institute of  British Columbia which sets out to encourage municipalities  to make a large number of lots available for development to  keep prices under control. It will also assist governments with  background material for zoning policies, servicing bylaws and  other studies. This is what Premier Barrett's government has  in mind with Bill 42. It would be reasonable to suspect that  the government will make an effort to reduce its methods of  obtaining its objectives.  While the matter of basic food production may not be the  big factor in the British Columbia situation it should/not be  overlooked that our grain stocks have been reduced to the lowest level in 20 years and this in spite of the two biggest world  grain crops in i97_, and 1972. The situation is that."really good  crops in all major producing areas are needed just to squeak  by according to Wheat Board, expectations.    \  It may seem far-fetched to ring in wheat crops iri writing  about B.C. land. It does show that agricultural land is becoming something that must be protected. However this is only one  facet of Mr. Barrett's move, to have some" control over the use  of land.  Given time it is within the realm of possibility the provincial government will be able to smooth out those sections which  have aroused strenuous opposition. With government controls,  spread over so many things in our day-to-day life we cannot  expect land under today's pressures to remain outside such  control. Perhaps Mr. Bennett's continued cry about J_e socialist  wolf at our doors is misplaced. If he had been in power it is  quite likely he might have presented something worse. How  cbout B.C.

Mrs. Lee Redman asked Sechelt council to consider May  Day as a venture for children  and not side show games.  Gibsons Kiwanis club start  their search for land on which  to build senior citizen homes.  10 YEARS AGO  A. E.

The battle for installation of  moving signs on Gibsons buildings started in Gibsons council meetings.  Jack Nelson and Niels Han  sen take over Sechelt's  Shell  Service station.  15 YEARS AGO  Before a Gibsons Ratepayers  association audience Robert  Ritchey asks Gibsons and Sechelt councils to support an  airfield in Wilson Creek area.  Elphinstone school students  announce they will put on  Gilbert and Sullivan's Mikado.  Sechelt Teachers association  advertises a salary schedule  covering four school districts  showing that this district is  the  lowest  of the four.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Volunteer Firemen's  annual ball was described as a  social   and   financial   success.  The new post office in the  Telford block is rapidly near-  ing completion.  Gibsons Public Library received its incorporation documents at a meeting in the A. S.  Trueman home.  Opposition to the farm  freeze, based on the provincial  government's Bill 42,; known  as the Land. Commission act,  is unavoidably making a good  many people lose sight of what  is involved .N  Some background on the sit  uation is presented by the  Coast News so argument of  both sides can be. analyzed  better.  To begin with here is a press  release issued last Nov. 23 by  the NDP minister of agriculture:  "Hon. David D. Stupich,  minister of agriculture, today  (Nov. 23, 1972) announced  that the province has signed  an agreement with the federal  government for the implemen  tatiori of a Small Farms Development program. The program  was originally announced earlier this year by the/federal _iiily  ister of agriculture, but agreement could not be reached due  to differences regarding administration and a lack of  choice'... of development programs best suited to British  Columbia. These details have  now been worked out to the  satisfaction of both Governments and then the program  will now.proceed.  "On signing the agreement,  Mr. Stupich stated that the  aim of the program is to, help  the owners of small farms to.  help themselves^ The core  program consists Of a property  listing service, program for  purchasing farms for resale  within short periods, of time,  grants to vendors, and special  credit facilities for purchasers,  especially young farmers.  "The program should be effective as a method of encouraging the consolidation of  small farms into larger, more  economical units. The Farm  Credit Corporation will handle  the land transfer aspects of  the plan, while the B.C. Department of Agriculture will  be responsible for the counselling and advisory services related to farmer participation.  "Efforts are being made to  implement the program in  British Columbia early iri 1973.  A joint federal-provincial committee will be established to  oversee the administration and  make recommendations for  program changes from time  to time. Program counsellors,  who will provide guidance,and  assistance to farm operators  interested in various aspects  of the new program, will be  located in B.C. Department of  Agriculture offices at; six key  locations throughout the province.  "Further   details   regarding  the Small Farms Development  Program   will  be released  in.,  the near future."  About one month ago the  department of agriculture issued an announcement covering British Columbia Land inventory maps and farmland*  preservation policy. It explain  ed that land capability for  agriculture mapping, a part  of the Canada Land Inventory  program, started in 1965, is  scheduled to complete the  whole province by 1981. At pre  sent only about one quarter  of the province has been ihap-  ped. As the mapping has concentrated on the settled areas,  most of the immediate demands can be satisfied. Maps  are not yet available for Vancouver Islarid,the north shore  of the Fraser Valley, Thompson and! Upper Fraser.  E. R. Cuylits, Regional District planner in a recent assess  ment of the demand for land  situation maintained an aspect  to be considered was the increasing land shortage in  North America for residential  and recreational uses. Larger  lot sizes which wOuld help to  maintain to some degree ^the  rural-urban character of vthi_i  area will rapidly increase the  area   required   to   house   our  growing population. Thus, the  spread of low density housing  will rapidly consume existing  wilderness lands. Some planners argue this is not the  route to take. i      _  It is maintained we should  encourage high densities such  as multiple housing and condominiums,-in specific locations  thus permitting the preservation of rural farm land and  wilderness areas for agricultural and recreational purposes  Tn effect urban nodes would  be created in the low density  rural landscape presently/ existing which could be available  for the publics'  enjoyment.  A counter argument to this  concept he argued is that it  will be. descriminatory to exist  ing landowners. Some will be  able to reap the profits of  being able to develop his land  while others cannot. In effect  some individuals could gain  large profits under existing  land tenure systems.  In the meantime the provincial government //-.has:''  brought in the controversial  Bill 42, known as the Land  Commission act and the objec  tives of the act are defined as  the preservation of agricultural land, for farm use, preserve green belts land banks  for urban or industrial, use,  park lands and recreational  lands in general.  How this is all to be achiev?  ed is what is creating-a furore  and the rights or wrongs according to how you view some  sections   of  the  bill   are  not  part of an article dealing .with  the general trend of land usage.  riox only in this province but in  all North America and the  British isles.  Nestor Izowski, editor of the  White Rock , ,Sun made some  Observations under the editor  ial heading of Farming for the  Future which is quoted as  follows:  " Before we vilify the NDP  for being callous,  or cynical,'  or dictatorial, let us exarriine  the issue more fully.  "This program is not exactly new, as last year the Socred  government started buying  farmland and leasing it back  to the farmers so that it would  not be grabbed up by develop  ers to resell as Commercial,  industrial  or  residential   pro-  I_pe��ty.-'-'/r >;v;'.'��������� ������  ��"A number of farms between  "'tile _SRcoriie_i and Serpentine  rivers were purchased for this  reason, just in time to save the  farmers from oblivion by  floods crashing through aged  dikes.  "The present government's  proposals are simply an extension of this policy. Land, they'  re saying is not a commodity  like other manufactured goods>  particularly farm arid recreational land.  "A $90 million food growing  industry is at stake. And looking to the future, the very  livability Of BJC. is at stake.  "The  supply of land*  after  all, is severely limited. A mere  four per cent of it is arable in  , B.C. arid our population pro-  (Continued on sage 3)  N. Richard McKibbin  A P1SRSONAI.

(Continued from page 2)  mises to double within 30  years, most to settle in the  valley;  "Besides, experience shows  how local governments vary  greatly in their willingness to  preserve food, sources. Delta  and Richmond are .notorious,  for having destroyed vast  tracts of cropland for rows of  identical houses.  "Surrey has been slightly  more cautious, though even it  has failed to come up with a  comprehensive plan for its future in agriculture. It agrees  that protection of farm-rich  lowlands is too expensive to  be handled locally.  "It becomes obvious that  stricter; more unilateral controls are necessary if /we are  going to preserve farmland  and assist the farmers. Thus,  a land commission enforcing  common guidelines will now  do what the municipalities  have neglected.  "The tricky question of com  pensation to farmers for lost  resale value also heeds scrutiny.'  "How   should   farmers   be  compensated   for    losing   the  right to auction their holdings  Not at market value for suburban housing, that's for sure.  "Were that argument to hold  then homeowners everywhere  would sell their land for its  highrise potential, rather than  for its present use as a single  family resident. Denied that,  should they be compensated  for  lost  resale  value?  "We don't like rule-by-decree coming from the NI>P  any more than we did from  the Socreds. Being able to  make one's case is surely part  of the long-awaited "new deal  for   people" in  this' province.  "In all, however, we support  the government on principle.  No-where else in North Ameri  ca is anyone doing so much to  preserve the little farm land  we have left.  "We look forward to debate  on the issue, and the amendments that will give the legislation the breadth and1 fairness it sorely lacks."   .

Elspeth Alley, British  Columbia's first fully ordained  woman dea con and associate  minister at St. Catherines  Anglican Church, Capilano,  who occupied the pulpit in St.  Bartholomews, Sunday morning, has a warm spot in her  heart for Gibsons.  "It was at St. Barts four  years ago as a visiting teacher,  the vicar, Dennis Morgan,  prophesied I was intended for  the rhinistry, a thought farthest from my mind at that time'.  She was ordained Deacon last  Whitsunday.  In her sermon, Rev. Alley  pointed out that the 40 days of  Lent, leading to Easter, were  a time for prayer, meditation  and remembrance, a time  when some of us no doubt  would forego such things as  chocolates, potato chips, cig-  arets and even liquor.  ~ Lent must surely have a  much deeper connotation than ���  the giving iip of a few simple  luxuries. It meant in the common denominator of Christianity to give of ourselves more  freely. In this we could be aided by making up a list of o]ur  friends, including the lonely,  unhappy, ill arid aged, then go x  out and visit with them, taking into their lives our faith,  affection, kindness, concern and  Parliament Hill   ;  BY HARRY  OLAUSSEN, MP.  Legislation to create a five-  member land commission with  authority to designate the use  of all land in the province was  recently introduced in the  B.C ���legislature by the provincial government.  The main purpose of Bill No.  42 is the preservation of family farms which are now sub-  j ect to a cabinet - ordered  freeze.^ . ..'_' ' '.....������..:  :  As   a   result   of   this   many  people who own land in Coast .  Ohilcbtin   and  other   areas   of >  B.C.   are concerned  with  the  impact of this bill and its effect, on their landholdings.  Bill No. 42 is a provincial  and not; a federal bill and a  .natter to be debated in the  provincial ? legislature. However, a nturiber; of people; have"  already written, to me on the  matter and I feel that they  deserve  a 'fair reply.  Althoughjl have-not studied  the provincial government's  bill in detail, I can only assume  that the V proposed five-man %  commission is expected to bet- :  ter withstand pressures to re-  zone for subdivision, pressures  that are felt "by municipal  councils.  . However, because of the general concern regarding the mat  ter, I have contacted the government in Victoria and was  informed that the government  does not intend to be inflexible on the land act.' There  will- be amendments to the  present bill while public hearings and committee meetings  will be held to,work out de-.  tails to the satisfaction of the  average landholder in this pro- "  vince.-/. /'.."' :V-;  The.-e is no doubt that it is .  in the public interest for the  government to hold public  hearings throughout the province and to benefit from public wisdom be.IVre implementing tftis piece of legislation  understanding. Then only will  the 40 days of Lent take oh a  deeper, fuller - meaning and  the joy of Easter and, the Resurrection enter into our hearts  and lives. - ���     '���'���;'  The Order of Job's Daughters with their officers and  mentors were present at this  service.

Abbott  as District Manager - North  Shore.  In his new, post, Mr- Abbott  will be responsible for telephone installation and repair,  commercial operations, arid  central office switching admin  istration for the area that includes the North Shore, Squamish, the Pemberton Valley /  and the Sunshine Coast.  :  Mr. Abbott began his career  at B. C. Tel in 1953 and has  held several management posi  tions throughout the company.  Prior to his appointment, Mr.  Abbott had been serving as;  district customer service mana  ger in Vancouver;  The appointment comes as a  result of administration changes in the company's Coastal  Division - prompted by increas  ing demands for telephone  service in the area it covers.  The Coastal Division, which  comprised the Greater' Vancouver region and the Fraser  Valley, has been divided into .  two separate operating divisions ��� West Division (Coastal  Area) and East Division (Coast  al  Area)..  The   North   Shore   District,'  with   headquarters   iri   North  Vancouver;- is one^ of four districts   which   make   up    the  West Division.  Although the Coastal Area  covers only 3��� per cent of  British Columbia, it encompasses more than 50 percent of  the population and serves more  than 63 percent of the system's  1,180,000   telephones.  from Victoria  As I write this, the budget  speech having been delivered  by Premier .Dave Barrett is  the subject of debate. Space  does not permit ine to delve  into the whole budget, so I will  confine my remarks to some  items generally* arid some of  particular interest to people  in Mackenzie constituency.  First, there is to be no increase in the provincial tax  rate for people.  The Home-owner's grant is  to be raised from $150 to $200  and for people over 65 who  own their own homes to $250;  also $3,500,000 is provided to  carry on elderly citizen's grants  A total of $90 milibn is earmarked for medicare and to  start the process of intermediate and extended care for'  our people and to rationalize  health services in this province.        ..',.'  Thirtyrthree and a half million dollars more has been designated for 'highways and I'm  sure going to try to get some  of that for Mackenzie  A great deal of this budget  is designed to job-intensive  stimulation of the,'; economy.  One hundred milHon has been  earmarked in one way or another to this end-  Such grants as the $10,00.0,-  000 set aside for recreation  centres, $5,000,000 for reforestation and another five million for the accelerated' park  development fund; are typical  of this kind of thing.  The, family farm and fisherman have had the gas tax removed for off highway use  and for the family truck used  on the highway.  In general the future economic, outlook for B.C. looks  bright.   -  BY DON LOCKSTEAD  *��� M. L. A.  A further bit of news regarding your M.L.A. is that I  have been appointed to the  following committees: Forestry and fisheries, __i���ing and  railways, trade and industrial  development, and! a special  committee on oil spills.  I am asking that anyone in  the constituency who feels they  have some inforniation that  may be helpful to me or the  committees, pjease .write to  me, care of Parliament Buildings, Victoria.  One thing that particularly  pleased me was ;the designation of money for a children's  hospital in Viet Nam.  I believe this government, in  only a few short months, has  already made a good start on  humanitarian legislation.

Individuals affected by new  tax rules concerning company  cars will find* themselves paying more tax for 1972.  Even before tax reform, the *  use of a company car for personal driving was considered  to be a benefit to an employee  upon which he was required to  pay tax.  The benefit was calculated  by determining the ratio of the  employeels personal driving to  his total use of the car.  The old rule is.still in effect.  However, beginning in 1972, a  new formula was introduced  into the Income Tax Act under which a n_inimum. benefit  will be calculated.  Calculations under the new  formula will be made by the  employer, and since the -application of the formula to specific situations can be quite  complex, the formula will not  be outlined here. Anyone interested in the details of the  new calculation should either  consult his accountant or request from the Department of  National Revenue a copy of  their Interpretation Bulletin  No. IT-63.  However, the only two factors taken into account in the  formula  are:  (1); The number of days  : during the5 calendar year in  which-the i6ar was available to  the employee for personal use;  and  (2) The cost to the employer  of buying Or leasing the car.  The actual use made of the  car by the employee, and the  actual operating costs of the  car for the year are not considered.  Personal use of the car will,  in general, be any use which is  not related to the business of  the employer and includes  con_nuting from home to office.   ;      > : '-.' $������        '   '' ���  Some employees1 may have  the right to' use a company  car, but may not fully exercise  this  right.

In effect, the driver1  of the older car is discriminated against under the terms of  the  formula.  ...:.��� Apparently only, lease payments made to the person from  whom the employer is leasing  the automobile are considered  in the formula (and amounts  paid to the lessor with respect  to insurance need not be included).  Whether it will be practical to ^exclude repair costs  from the lease agreement, and  whether it will (be more advantageous to lease or own  automobiles, are questions  which will require consideration, by each employer.  lies  below average  March food supplies as reported by the Economics  Branch, Agriculture Canada,  Ottawa: "    ,  Pork: In both Eastern and  Western Canada, pork supplies  should continue to average below year- earlier level-  Beef: A moderate increase in  supply over year earlier levels  can be expected, in both Eastern and Western Canada.   {  Fruit: Supplies of apples .and  pears are expected to be available ini all areas.

It is  late, perhaps 1:00 a.m. Darkness and silence prevail. The  black sky is aglow with a  thousand stars, the Southern  Cross plainly visible overhead.  The sea is calm, a deeper and  darker ebony than the star  filled sky.  I have taken a last stroll  around deck before retiring  for my final night at sea. As  I move forward along the deserted decks even the dull  throb of the engines disappears to the stern. The bow is  in total darkness and silence.  High above, atop the wheel-  house, the radar scanner  sweeps in circles. Ahead, we  tear the liquid blackness in  two, and it rushes as foaming  rivers - one on each side - to  close the gap behind and  erase the passing disturbance  of man. The great forward  mast sways gently in the cool  night air.  In the morning goodbyes  will be ( said to companions  who seem like old friends.  The weeks on board have gone  too quickly as our ship has  sped halfway across the globe.  L?  We have averaged over 500  miles per day, at a cruising  speed of 20 knots. Now we are  almost there and there will be  no more nights of limitless  sky.  Yellow and bright, a flash  appears on the horizon to the  west, then disappears again  just as suddenly. The pattern  is repeated and then again. It  is North Cape. We are in New  Zealand waters and only six  hours from Auckland.  Ahead, on the southern hori-  zen, there is a smear of dull  yellow light. A faint search  light beam sweeps up and over  the edge of the sea.

The stranger humbly offers  his heart as food for thee.  And so, in the spirit of this  ancient chant that heralded the  arrival Of the first Polenesians  to the Land of the Long White  Cloud,  I  arrive in Auckland.  It could not be a more glori-  us morning. It is mid-summer  here in the Southern Hemisphere and the sun is warm  and" bright. We are on Waitemata, the harbour of sparkling waters as the Maoris called it, and about to disembark  into the heart of New Zealand's Queen City. The harbour is a milky green, much  like the colour of Lake Louise,  and the water truely does  sparkle. Around it lies the  city of Auckland.  Auckland is the. nation's largest and major center. Seven  thousand miles from Canada,  6,000 from South America and  1,300 from its nearest neighbour Australia, the city lies at  about 35 degrees south, or the  equivalent latitude of Los Angeles. It is situated in the northern half of New Zealand's  North Island! and occupies a  narrow isthmus (}_ mile at its  narrowest point) between two  great oceans: Waitemata harbour and the Tasman sea to  the west. Its 800,000 inhabitants are spread over an area,  of 250 square miles, making  Auckland larger than London  in area.  There are hills everywhere.  The entire city was once an  area of active volcanoes (now  hopefully extinct) and it is  built on a total of 63 volcanic  cones and craters.  Waitemata, the main harbour and its environs are stud  ded with islands, the most  significant one being the 219  foot Rangitoto. This island  can be seen from everywhere  in the city and it is one of the  world's newest, and certainly  most beautiful, volcanoes. It  rises as a perfect core and its  shore can be charted as a near  perfect circle. It has been almost untouched by man and  its .lush- green slopes dominate the harbour.  Ho the west Auckland Harbour bridge sweeps gracefully  over the sparkling green water  to link the city with, what  Aucklandjers call, its North  Shore.  With a bump we pull alongside Prince's Wharf. Its time  to set foot ashore.  From the waterfront the  city looks spotless. Everything  is white and there are trees  everywhere; no railway tracks  or industrial grime and Prince's Wharf is a vast improvement v over QPR piers B and C.  The Arcadia has pulled alongr  side an open air restaurant  and waiting lounge, much like  an airport terminal, with rooftop parking. Below is an area  for baggage and freight loading and unloading. One steps  off a ship into very pleasant  surroundings.  At least half the ship is disembarking here. Ahead lie  baggage collection and Immigration.  Baggage collection takes a  little longer than expected. I  learn quickly that the pace of  life here i_ slower than in  North American cities. It is  hot, and. dock workers are in  no rush. Morning passes.  As an unexpected but welcome surprise a lady from the  university has come to meet  me. We have coffee and wait -  Noon. Slowly the pieces are un  loaded   from   the   ship.

It is a perfect chance to do  a little exploring - arid the  time lost will be regained by  customs and Immigration officials who, without opening  anything or asking any questions, simply sticker each  piece of baggage passed by  customs and with a smile say  Welcome to New Zealand!

Log  cuts sawdust  To get more lumber out of  each log which goes through  a sawmill,' novel techniques  are well advanced at MacMil-  lan Bloedel's Canadian White  Pine sawmill in Vancouver,'  states J. R. Forrest, the company's building materials  group vice-president.  Kerf is the sawdust which  results when a raw log is  sawn. The less sawdust from  each cut Of the saw, the more  solid lumber is produced.  When sawmills are handling  millions of board feet of logs  a year the loss hi lumber volume can be significant.  Explaining the new approaches, Forrest says: "Our  tests to date indicate that an  infra-red light system, can  automatically control the band  saw guide, resulting in more  accurate cutting. The huge  handsaws make the first cuts  in a log in reducing it to lumber.   ���  "The infra-red light is beam  . ed. across the carriage which  moves the log through the  bandsaw blade. As the logs  interrupt the light beam the  equipment is automatically  placed in the proper position  to make the most accurate cut.  Previously this setting was  done manually."  The electronic calculator  system, now in the final stages  of design, will help in reducing the thickness of the saw  blade, thus reducing sawdust.  it is a simple push button  operation which virtually eli-.  minates the chance of the op-,  erator making an error in the.  saw settings. When both the  new systems are perfected  they will be used in other Mac  Millan  Bloedel sawmills.  SHARE YOUR  GOOD HEALTH  BE A BLOOD DONOR  Coast News, Mar. 14, 1973.     g>  Bum cheques  There is a double risk in  accepting second party  cheques. When the person presenting the cheque is the payee and must endorse it to you,  It means you are trasrting two  people instead  of one.  Beware of N cheques that  have the company name stamp  ed on rather than printed -  means a very small company  or a bad cheque passer.  Don't accept post-dated  cheques or cheques over a  month old; ::  Don't accept a cheque that  shows signs of changes. Have  the maker rewrite the cheque.  Ask for at least two types  of identification. Drivers' Licence alone is not conclusive.  Remember to copy numbers,  names, and' addresses shown  Complete stolen identification  is easily obtained by the  cheque passer.  Compare the client's signature, written while you watch,  with his signature on his other  identification material.  If the client did not write  the cheque in your presence,  find a reason for him to sigh  something else while you  watch and compare signature.  If in doubt, note the description of the maker on the back  of the cheque. Don't rely on  memory - by the time you discover the cheque is bad, you  will 'have forgotten important  details of the passer's appearance.  (To be Continued)   ,  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Q: When does, a contract  have to be in writing?  A: Very few contracts have  to be in writing. We will deal  in this article with the statute  of frauds which is designed to  prevent frauds and avoid all  the uncertainty of oral agreements by providing that cer-  tain contracts must be in writing. The two most common instances mentioned in this statute are the sale of an interest  in land arid a guarantee.  An interest in land would  include a deed, agreement for  sale or sub agreement for sale,  mortgage, assignment of mortgage, , vendors assignment of  agreement for sale, purchasers  assignment of agreement for  sale and assignment of an assignment. ''"'" ������  A guarantee occurs where  one person agrees to pay the  indebtedness of another if the  debtor himself does not pay  when called upon to do so.  If however, an agreement is  made orally that concerns  something that should be In  writing and the parties partially perform the contract, the  law will enforce it. For example let us consider the sale  of land containing a boarding  house. If the purchaser enters  and. take's possession and starts  to .operate the business the  agreement would be regarded  by our law as being partially  performed and the courts  would enforce it although  there was no document in  writing and the terms of the  contract could only be proved  by oral, testimony.

(By JOAN BLOMGREN)  Last weekend Elphinstone's  junior boys travelled to J. N.  Burnett in lUchmondi for the  tri-zone basketball tournament. Elphinstone met the  strong Vancouver City College  Fighting Irish in their first  game, Friday night.  The Cougars started., off  very well but lost the game  in the second quarter as they  /gave the Irish a.lot of points  they shouldn't have, in the  third quarter the Cougars  switched to a much more effective man to man defense  but were still unfortunately  beaten by College.  The Cougars showed! a great  teameffort* in fact their best  in about a month, Saturday,  as they played the host school  J. N. Burnett. Although the  teams were tied at the quarter^ Burnett slowly pulled  pulled ahead to take the win.  "The   team   played,  really  well for the competition we  had to play against," commented Elphie's coach Mir.  Lawrence Stoochnoff. The  Sugars, who are single A,  were classed with double A  (schools during this tournament.  Vancouver City College took  top honors in the championship game against OSTotre Dame  and advance to the B.C. finals  Craig Norris of Elphinstone  received all-star honorabble  mention.  This - year the junior boys  won 18 of their 25 games.
