Both teams were tied, at  the end of the first quarter  but Edmonds managed to pull  ahead 20-15 at half-time. Although the Celtics kept matching Cougar baskets in the  last quarter,; the boys didn't  give up and continued to play  hard right up to* the final buzzer in a 36-43 defeat. Support  from the Elphinstone crowd  was tremendous during this  game especially the final half.  Stevie Miles, Elphinstone  guard, played a good game as  he outhustled much taller Edmonds players and led his"  team, with   1(0 points.

The    Tournament   resumed  (Continued on Page 12)  Gibsons council decided to  allow the firemen to flood the  newly covered tennis courts  in Dougall Park. Council ageed  providing the thickness of the  ice will be sufficient to protect the new paved surface.  Clerk David Johnston (brought  the firemen's request to the  attention of council at Tuesday  night's meeting.  A subdivision proposal by  Dick Fitchett to develop a 13  lot block of land at the southeast corner of Reed and North  rds. was held up .to find out  from the highways department  if they can say as to where the  highway from Langdale will  go.  Mayor Walter Peterson suggested this should be done as  there would be no use laying  out a plan if it could not be  used.  Council arranged to meet  Don Lockstead M.LA during  the morning of Dec. 16.  With the Public Library  having received a $150 grant  only from provincial library  grants, council decided to write  the Victoria officials to inform  them that Gibsons library was  expanded and improved so  that it could' get the greater  grant. Now the library is receiving the smallest government grant that it has received for a good number of years.  A sewer extension for the  Kiwanis; Senior Citizen complex off North rd. lias be��a  approved by the provincial  pollution'branch.  The application by Harry J.  Smith for an extension of his  water lot in the harbor aroused discussion on the impossibility of squaring off water  -lots in a' circular^ wat_*_^��_t��8_.v:  Council decided to allow the  present situation to remain on  a   year   to   year  basis.   Next  FLOWN TO HOSPITAL  Robert 'Lewis Reid, 26, was  found unconscious early Saturday morning, from head  wounds caused by a gun. A  helicoptor transported him to  Vancouver General Hospital  within four hours. Up to the  time of going to press he was  still unconscious. RCMP investigated.  Two views on S.T. A. activities  Comment from the Sechelt  Teachers association concerning last week's school board  events is covered in the following release to the press:  As president of the Sechelt  Teachers' Association I would  wish that the board of trustees would conserve their energy and their concern for  educational matters instead of  imagined slights as to who  knew what first.  The remarks of one trustee  that the board has been entrusted to run school affairs  meets, with unanimous approval, but the board should remember that they are governed by the Public Schools Act.  Our concern and, as it turned  out, the concern of many  others in this community, is  that the trustees were urisurp-  ing the authority, of the act,  in this instance, by appointing  and by not holding an election  to fill the vacancy.  "We expressed our concern  to our advisor Mr. Robertson,  president of the BX.. Teachers-  Federation who suggested that  I personally call the secretary-treasurer to clarify this  matter. The discussion that  took place between the secretary-treasurer and myself revolved around Mir. Canty's letter that had been read at a  board1 meeting. If the secretary-treasurer has chosen to  relate this conversation regarding the publicized letter to  any following correspondence  that was received by him* for  the hoard's information, there  is very little I can do about it.  It was unfortunate that in  news stories in last week's local newspapers the Sechelt  Teacher's Association was accused by the school board and  the secretary-treasurer of having been, "leaked.* advance  notice from the department of  education that the minister  was recommending the board  hold  an election.  The Sechelt Teachers' Association categorically denies  that it was privy to information from the department pf  education or that it ���'���has the  ear" of Mrs. Eileen Dailly, the  honoralble minister. The Sechelt Teachers' Association,  however, was aware of rumors circulating in the community that an election had  been recommended.  Under the circumstances sur  rounding the board's actions,  moreover, the decision of the  minister was not surprising;  I would say it was mandatory,  and I speak not as a "malcontent" tout as president of the  Sechelt Teachers' Association  which represents all the teachers in this school district.  Further to this matter, a  trustee has been quoted as say  ing that this is"the third  time the department of education has gone against a decision made by the hoard". It  should foe remembered that  two of these decisions were  made under the former Social  Credit government, and one,  the most recent, under the  New Democratic government.  Virginia Douglas, President.  Editor: I cannot refrain  from comment regarding the  series of events which led to  the rejection of Don Head's  appointment and the subsequent loss of Bernie Mulligan  from the Sechelt School District No. 46 Board, of School  Trustees.  Pseudo-demagogues, with no  true interest in the well-being  of our British Columibia educational, system, or of the students it serves, have worked  consciously to destroy the  foundation on which this system had from the first days  of our province, (been based  While sensitive to criticism  of their own domains, these  individuals, both within this  district and beyond, it, permitted the hunger of their egos  to inveigle them into public  mischief.  Either too arrogant or too  ignorant to seek or to hear the  truth, they plunged ahead on  their destructive euphoric  spree.  Bernie Mulligan, in tending  his resignation, said that if the  disallowance of Don Head's  appointment as trustee was a  sample of the value in which  board decisions are held foy  the department of education,  there is no need for school  boards.  I say that, if agents-provocateurs such as we have seen at  work here are permitted to  continue to hatch their ne-  flatious schemes among us,  unpunished, then the day is  not far off when we shall have  no schools. Lester R. Peterson  time the application comes up  again in a year's time.  Council once again decided  to offer a 5% interest rate on  prepaid 1973 taxes from Jan.  1 to May 15 with interest payable to June 30.  Before council will support  Pender Harbor's request for  free tolls on phone calls to and ,  from Pender Harbor, it wants  to know what effect the move  would have on general rates;  along the Sunshine Coast. Each  time a move of this kind occurs there is an increase in the  general phone rate. The mayor  added that there would foe a  public gain in the long run.;  A fire truck at the disposal  of the fire department as surplus equipment was sold to  Kaslo in eastern B.C. for  $3,100. A late tender from  North Vancouver offered $607  as full price which was turned  down.  Teachers back  referendum  The iSechelt Teachers' Association, recognizing the necessity for improved educational  facilities in this school dis  trict, off ers its wholehearted  support for the coming referendum. "'.'��� 'f'.'���' '-���'  .. .  Additional gymnasium facilities are long overdue for Elphinstone Secondary School  where, of necessity, so many  students are scheduled ' tor  physical education that there  is not enough room for them  andYthe stage mus^ lae iiwed  ",;fdrYpkl_^:;are^ '. y  The addition of a mechanics  shop will, indeed, foe a step  forward in preparing those  students who are not college-  bound, to prepare themselves  for meaningful employment  upon graduation.  The S.T.A. urges the voters  of this school district to support the referendum and give  the students  a break.  Oppose transfer  -* ���       .    .        .    . ;���  \.        l  ���  Transfer of a lease from  MacMillan Bloedel company  covering property on Roberts  Creek to another holder has  drawn a protest from the Regional hoard.  The planning committee recommended a letter be sent to  the provincial lands department protesting the tranfer as  the board had. not .been advised as there might foe a change  of land use involved. This  land is in the board's proposed green foelt for the creek.  The committee also recommended the Regional board foe  advised, of all alterations and  assignments of leases prior to  transactions. The hoard at its  meeting last week agreed to  these recommendations.  The Roberts Creek Community association registered  its opposisition to any reasoning foy urging that individual  parcels of land should not be  rezoned in violation of existing regulations and that any  proposed rezoning should foe  submitted to the Community  association for  approval.

Outside of the school referendum which a good many people  think should be passed, there are three elections in which there  is a  definite interest.  Take for instance the school board -with four seeking two  .seats in the rural area from West Sechelt to'Egmont. The retiring trustees are John Hayes and William Malcolm, with the  latter being a long term member of the school board.  The interesting part is that some people have the idea the  school board is beingnegligent in its school profolems of that  area. The board maintains it is being more than fair to the  area which does not have    large school population.  Among the candidates seeking the two seats are some with  the strong desire to have the board do better. Well, if they are  elected and get down to the basic area education situation  irom which they will have to start, it is going to be interesting  to watch developments. The elasticity of the school board is  limited.!  ���   \ ���  " ������������  In the elections for Gibsons and1 Sechelt councils, there are-  three seeking Sechelt seats vacated toy two of the three nominees.   Whether   MrlShuttleworth   has   the   voting   strength   to  defeat1 either of the  incumbents, will foe known on election  night.- .'���..���������  In Gibsons with four desiring the two vacant seats, none of  the four are recent office-holders. Mr. Archer and Mr. Harris  have had a go at it before but were not elected.  No: matter who is elected in Gibsons Mayor Walter Peterson  will be faced with fairly green aldermen. The two sitting members, Aid. Ted liume and Winston Robinson have served one  year of their two year terms and whoever wins the Dec. 9'  Gibsons aldermanic vote will sit as alderman for two years.  The future of Gibsons council could foe m^re interesting  than-one suspects at this time. Quite a number of people have  expressed views as to what Gibsons council should be doing.  So taking the school board and Gibsons council as focal  points on the basis of future operations of both, there may not foe  too many dull moments in future municipal and school board  operations. /  It folded up in 19SO  In case anyone was mislead foy reading in another weekly  newspaper that the Sechelt Times dates back to 1949 bear in  mind that the Sechelt limes of 1949 was pufolished foy Claude  Hoodspith in West Vancouver. It was a free delivery paper  which folded up in 1950;.  The present Sechelt Times saw the first light of day during  1963. The Coast News was established in 1945 and outlived the  1949 Sechelt Times without much trouble.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS  AGO  Money for what was called  the Langdale foy pass was reported from Victoria to foe included in the 196-7 provincial  roads  budget.

Thomson)  Of the flood of historic, biographic books and brochures  brought on by our Centennials  two interesting and outstanding books are A History of  British Columbia's Weekly  Newspapers, complied foy Irving and Frances' Wilson and  The Weeklies - 'Biggest Circulation in Town, foy J. George  Johnston.  The history of B.C. Weeklies  published by the British Columbia Weekly Newspapers  Association, is a carefully docu  mented and profusely illustrated 139-page volume of interesting and informative reading.  The fooofc, produced through  co-operation of member papers and other B.C. weeklies  is studded with the colorful  personalities.  Warm tribute is paid to a  host of old time printers, in  eluding Dugald Campbell,  Honorary life member of the  B.C.WjN.A. for his coritribur  tion of much of the original  history of weeklies in this  part of the country.  The reader is taken through  the many changes in printing  methods since early days of  hand set type to the mechanical age of machine composition and into the present day  computerized cold type or  photographic off-set printing.  The presses which turn put  today's newspapers, too have  seen drastic .changes from  hand turned, hand fed- single  sheet type cylinder presses,  to the roll-fed r rotary presses.  These in turn have given way  to the highly sensitive precision off-set presses, many cen  tralized, and manned by master  printers to serve a large terri-  . tory rather than a single community.  Other chapters are devoted  to the origin of the B.C. Press  Assoc, iby Arvid Lundell, Pioneer People and Papers, the  centralized weeklies business  promotion offices and a roll  call and brief thumbnail biography of B.C.W.N.A. presidents from 1922 to 1972.  The second book is Weekly  Newspapers, Biggest Circulation in Town; published as a  salute for the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Weekly  Newspaper Association, is  more national in scope. Its  author, J. George Johnstone,  undertook the complex task  of seeing this book through  into final production, mainly  because the weekly was his  first love and first employment..  C. Irwin Mcintosh, President C.W.N.A. 1969-70, in his  ^foreword points out, that  "publishers, editors and printers of the weekly press have  strong traditions to maintain.  At least three Fathers of Confederation - Brown, Howe and  McGee had been weekly journalists and their contribution  has served as a sterling example to the thousands who  have followed. Weekly newspaper ,people are people  deeply involved in their communities."  In paying tribute to the  book's author, George Johnston^ the then President of the  C. W.N. A. stated that, "he  (Johnston) has enjoyed a long  association with the industry  and his intimate examination  The urge to write has blossomed out in Miss Fuoco's  class of third year pupils in  Gibsons Elementary and here  are some samples of original  "why" stories.  HOW THE PORCUPINE  T ���: ���* GOT ITS: ^TJII_LS  The porcupine got its quills  like this. He was walking on  the road when all of a sudden  a little boy grabbed the porcu  pine and ran home. When he  got home he saw some nails  in a box, and a hammer with  it. He hammered the -nails all  over the porcupine, then he  let him go and that's how he  go this quills, fojy Sigrid  Skogmo  Once there was a family  called the Potosos. They lived  in a small house in the woods.  They had a nine year old girl.  An animal named Sammy  kept bothering them by rattling the garbage can ��� or eating the pies that Mrs. Potosos  put out to cool. "We'll have to  do something about that bad  animal, Joan.". She said, "just  give him one more chance before he's killed, please. Let's  just give him a needle every  time he's bad." And they did.

It is to be hoped tax  payers will give some thought  to the people they would like  to have represent them for  . the next term of office and  get out and vote for them.  We have been fortunate in  Gibsons, that over the past  years we have had good men  to run our village. Thiis has  been shown by steady progress and. reasonable taxes.  This fact has attracted many  people to come here to retire  without the peril of rapidly  rising costs of services overtaking their fixed incomes and  forcing them into sub-standard  living  conditions.  .Our .sewer system is nearing completion. This we had  to have and voted for it. At  the time of the plebiscite we  were quoted cost figures of  'between $7-800,000. It is a sure  bet now that before water  goes through to the sea it will  be in the $1 million range. No  doubt this couldn't be helped  but now let us find out what  this is gping to do to our taxes  and what it is going to cost  us to get hooked up to it before we start any more high  priced projects that we could  probably do without.  There is talk now of developing the Harbor area. No  doubt something needs to be  done to clean it up and make  it a pleasure for all of us. If  you visit the council chambers  you will see on the wall a picture of the proposed harbor  development, a look at the  brochure that is put out by  the people that are interested  in this project will show the  same general pictures, an island out in the bay built up  and the same harbor shore  ringed with high-rises. This  is something that shouldn't  happen here. It happened in  West Vancouver and now the  people realize what a tragic  mistake it was but it is too  late to do anything about it.  Of course the old story is  always given that this, sort of  thing is needed for a broader  tax base for much needed revenue, this has been proven  time and time again to be a  fallacy. The developer makes  the money and. by the time  all the services are in that are  necessary for a high density  area poor old tax payer gets  it right irt the pocket book to  pay for them through higher  taxes.  We have two people running  for office, both family men  and long .time residents, they  both look forward to the day  when they retire here and  hope to keep Gibsons a pleasant place to liyie in. they are  both strongly opposed to high  rise development;jpn the water  front and if elected will do all  in their power to prevent it  taking pi-ace. Progress, yes  but speculative ~ development  no. These people are Mr. K.  Hoehne and Mr. N. Harris.  These are the men I will vote  for. V.-'H. Eckstein, Retired.  Editor: It is-; with extreme  nausea that one reads Mrs.  West's letter in which; she describes the condition of a little  racoon caught in the foarfoar-  ous leghbld trap.  Many pepple don't know  that millions of animals are  so trapped each year in our  Canadian north and why this  should foe necessary in this  day of beautiful and long-  wearing synthetic furs passes  comprhension. If it is a matter  of work for trappers then  surely something more worthwhile could be found for them  to  do.  The sufferings of the animals caught in this trap can  hardly be imagined, terror,  anguish, hunger, bitter cold  and death which takes so  long to come.  All utterly unnecessary for  if trapping has to foe done (a  highly debatafole subject) then  there is available a trap which  kills instantly, perfected foy a  trapper who became sickened  by his-own cruelty. No reason  at all why this vicious instru  ment of torture should hot foe  outlawed as has been done in  other countries. Those interested in stopping this filthy  business ought to write to his  or her elected representative  demanding an immediate end  to the horror. Mrs. G. E. Webb  Editor: Solicitor - General  Goyer and his on-off approach  to the proposed change of the  ROMP emblems is one that wie  all find comparable to "Hide  and Seek".  The hon. gentleman should  realize that the people of  Western Canada made it clear  they were satisfied as things  stand and really heed no assurance of the RCMP as a National force!  Quebec and On  tario each have their own provincial police and the RCMP  ; are the (Dominion police enforcing law and order (where  authorized).  The solicitor-general actually has a bee in his bonnet because the word Police was  not, accepted by Western Cana  dians, nor was the removal of  the word Royal. It is {blatantly apparent that if he continues his tirade against our  historic   and   traditional   ties  Coast News, Dec. 6, 1972.  his political party will foe easily swept away at the polls.  In conclusion, we want our  system left alone, to function  naturally, untampered by meddlers who really cannot understand what tradition and Parliamentary Democracy are all  about. P. J.

The Stamp Starter Kit is  one of a series which .���will feature . historical notes and postage stamps illustrating different aspects of Canada's heritage. Ideally equipped for any  child or adult to start their  own stamp collection, the Kit  comes complete with a 15 page  bilingual mini-album, a pack-  . age of stamps and mounting  hinges, and an illustrated instruction pamphlet describing  how to start and maintain a  stamp collection.

The mini-album contains  mounting blocks for used  stamps illustrated in colour  and unused stamps illustrated  in black and white. Many of  the used stamps shown in the  album are provided in each  kit. Packages of the same  stamps in amused or mint condition can also foe purchased  separately at post offices  where the kits are oh sale.

The issue was discussed  when Directo Ben Lang, mayor  of Sechelt enquired as to what  was: going to ^happen; to: the  problem of the Cunriihgham  Amfoulance Service of Halfmoon Bay, finances of which  were discussed at a previous  board meeting.,.  There are two municipally  subsidized ambulances on the  Sunshine Coast now, Gibsons  and Sechelt. Gibsons has its  own emergency ambulance  and Sechelt uses the Cunningham service from Halfmoon  Bay.  Health Minister Dennis  Cocke informed the board in  a letter answering its request  for government policy on ambulances, that Dr. R. Fbulkes  who is making a study of  health services in the province  will have his report ready late  in 1973. The minister was sure  that the report would include  suggestions as to how the province can take care of the ambulance situation.  The minister added that he  Would rather wait for the report than make piecemeal  changes now which would run  counter to major policy decisions within the next year or  two.

Telephones infoi_hed Pender  Haiibor phone users it would  consider a request for no-toll  operation in a couple of years  time, when the local system  showed an increase.  Director J. H. Tyner (Pender Harbor) brought the. subject to the attention of last  week's Regional board meeting and urged the hoard to  back Pender Harbor residents  in   their   efforts. ���',...-.,'���..  The phone company was  dragging its feet as far as  Pender Harbor was concerned,  he said. There were areas adjacent to Powell River which  which did not have the population of Pender Harbor yet  they are toll free and some of  them are islands. He maintained the present toll system  was working hardships on a  growing area which had more  people in it and also more  sickness. He felt it was time  for the area to foe absorbed  into the toll free area just as  Gibsons and Port Mellon was  some years ago. The board  supported the Pender Harbor  desire.  Referendum drop-out?  Director G. London of Regional Area R (Halfmoon  Bay-West Sechelt) who is retiring at the end of the year  wanted to know at the (Regional Board meeting last  Thursday whether the area  could drop out of the coming  Sunshine Coast Recreation  committee's  referendum,;  He said the area ratepayer  association had decided it  would like to drop out.

Winsome application outlined  Details of the provincial  , government's guaranteed minimum monthly income plan  will be explained, in an information campaign to begin  Nov. 27, Rehabilitation and  Social Improvement Minister  Norman Levi announces.  Levi said the $200 per month  guaranteed income for British'  Columbians   over   65   will   be  known as Mincorne, an abbreviation   of  Minimum   Income.  He said details such as eligibility will foe explained in a  series of province-wide advertisements beginning with radio  ads November 27 and newspaper   ads  December   2.  Information about Mincorne  will also foe provided through  a series of talk-show appearances, a forochure available on  request and a pamphlet mailed to the 1,10,000 pensioners  already eligble to receive the  Mincorne benefits.  Briefly, the Mincorne plan  will provide pensioners with  enough money to ensure that  their total income is no less  than $200 per month. For example, if a senior citizen was  getting $150 per month in  pension money ; in November,  the pensions would be augmented by $50 from Mincorne  to create a total pension income of $200 per month. For  a married couple over 65 years  of age, the Mincorne benefits  will be applied to a total family income of $400 per month.  Effective date of the Mincorne plan will be Dec.  1.  "One of the main reasons  for calling the Special Session of the Legislature was to  implement the Mincorne plan  as soon as possible," said Premier David Barrett.

Levi said the guaranteed  income plan is the first of its  kind in North America and  will cost the B.C. government  about   $58   million   per   year.  "There are many people in  B.C. who are eligible for existing pension benefits but are  not coming forward to claim  them", said. Levi. "I hope this  information campaign will encourage many people to enquire about their eligibility  for Mincorne and other pension  benefits."

A. W. Gray  by letter and a telegram from  Bruce Townsend were read  The Gray complaint asked  that the license of Don Head  be revoked owing to beach  pollution, swimining ruined,  value of property reduced  plus the unbearable noise of  log boats. The Townsend telegram raised a protest and  asked that the license foe revoked. The matter was turned  over to Area F (Langdale)  planning commission for enquiry and study.  The Anavets desire to obtain land so the organization  can. build a clubhouse is finding difficulty due to Regional  board zoning bylaws.  At last week's meeting the  board's planning sufo-commit-  tee discussed the Anavets new  application asking that a lot  in , Roberts Creek - area be  changed from Rural Holding  zoning   to   Institutional.   The  COMMENT DEFERRED  Reporting at the Regional  board meeting last week on  negotiations covering a medical  clinic for Pender Harbor, Director J. H. Tyner said that  the problem is now in a period  of negotiation that makes it  better to defer comment.  MEETING   DATE   CHANGED  With the Regional board  December meeting falling on  Thurs., Dec. 28, the tooard at  its November meeting last  week decided to hold the  meeting on Thurs. Dec. 21.  committee recommended to the  board that the matter foe referred to the Area D (Roberts  Creek) advisory planning  commission and that the comr  mission discuss the issue -with  the  applicant.  Correspondence received on  this application from H. L.  Cowley of Metcalf road, read  as follows:  "Regarding the application  by the Anavets to rezone  property on Highway 10(11 at  Roberts Creekv we object on  the grounds that this is a  beer parlor / and " commercial  enterprise.  "We suggest this enterprise  should be located a considerable distance from Highway  101. To say the legion -will foe  located on a side road off 101  is really stating that they will  be putting a driveway in and  traffic will come and go on  101. We do not doubt that they  are good guys but when the  beer parlor lets out and the  patrons meet the ferry taffic  at night we would not like to  take credit for the results."  Canada.

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

Five year planning for school boards  Changes in referendum and  and planning procedures by  which school districts secure  financing for capital expenditures and approval to proceed with building projects  have been* announced by Mrs.  Eileen Dailly, minister of education.  New procedures will require  boards of school trustees, in  consultation with the department of education to establish  a five-year building plan, esti  mating each year's requirements over that period. Following acceptance by the department of the plan, the  board will then be authorized  to seek referendum approval  from the electorate for the  projects included in the first  three years of the plan.  Each year the plan will be  reviewed, again in consultation with the department of  education, to establish which  projects should be proceeded  with in the following year; to  revise, as necessary the remaining years, and to project  needs for an additional year.  Boards' requests will be sur  veyed in two sessions each  year, half the boards during  the early part of the year and  the other half later. No approvals to secure referendum  approval or to proceed with  any projects will be issued until   each   survey  is   complete.

The minister pointed out  that the new method will remove the two main objections  of school 'boards to the existing system. By obtaining referendum approval prior to,  instead of after, the determina  tion of the building program  for the next year, several additional months will be added  to the available construction  period: By planning over a  five year period boards will  be able to consider the longer  term requirements of their  districts instead of merely  meeting the urgent needs of  the moment.  Mrs. Dailly also announced  that .the specific restrictions  prohibiting construction other  than classrooms was being relaxed. She stated that she has  directed the establishment of  a system of priorities governing approvals and that, obviously, basic accommodation  for pupils will be at the head  $80,000 for  Kiwanis auction  " :���.   - ��� ������'.' ��� ..* *������-.'.       ��� "��� . ���  More than $80,000 worth of  merchandise will be auctioned  during the 14th Annual Kiwanis Television Auction on Dec.  9th, 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.,  from Channel 8 studios..  The Kiwanis International  Club has organized the auction since its beginning, and  uses the proceeds in the Vancouver area for drug education, support of a Senior  Citizens' Home, the Kiwanis  Music Festival, youth summer  camps, U.BJC. scholarships,  and a number of other worthwhile projects.

Originally a resident of Alder  grove, Elliot moved to Vancouver late in life and. won a  number of awards for his  painting.  The audience for the Annual Kiwanis TV Auction has  been estimated to be second  only to the Grey Cup. The  Kiwanis Club realized a net  profit of $30,000 from last  year's  auction.  NO    REGIONAL   ELECTION  For the, first time in five  years the Sunshine Coast Regional District board has  avoided an election. Three  seats were open in Areas B,  D and F but in each case the  nominee won the seat by acclamation. They -were Rita  Relf in Area B (Halfmoon  Bay), Director Harry Almond  in Area D (Roberts Creek)  and Director Lome iWblver-  ton in Area F  (Langdale).  Get  of the priority list. The personnel and' services of the  school planning branch will  be increased to give greater  assistance to boards, and the  school building manual will  be   completely   revised.  "As we have already stated  we are planning changes in  the entire system of operating  and. capital financing in education," Mrs. Dailly said. "How  ever, there appeared to be no  reason to delay these needed  dhan|ges until the -financial  system can be overhauled. I  must stress, however, that  this announcement does not  mean that the door is open to  increases  in  capital  expendi-  Church  Services  ANGLICAN  St. Bartholomew's  Rev. David H. P.

Post Canada Dayton says Chapman Ck. flow OK  Chapman Creek, described,  by Mayor Ben Lang of Sechelt  as the "life and death of this  area" is back in the news.  Thursday night's Regional  board meeting last week heard  Martin Dayton, professional  engineer eomment on a provincial Fisheries branch claim  that low) flow figures in summer would not provide the  Regional water system with  one million gallons of water  per day.  Mr. Dayton suggested the  Fisheries branch should not'  use figures which have been  proven federally to be on the  low side. The main points he  brought  out were:  We note firstly that the  Branch?�� observations with  respect to low flows are based  on records from the old gauging station upstream of the  highway bridge. You will recall that records from this  station have always been classed    as   "unreliable"   by   the  TRY ON  your next  pair  OF SHOES  AT  WIGARD'S  885-9345 SECHELT  federal department involved.  You may also recall our conclusion several years ago that  the records were not only unreliable but were also grossly  inaccurate in the lower ranges.  This conclusion resulted in a  new gauge being installed  further upstream during the  summer of 1970 by the Federal  Department.  For the August 22, 1970 low  flow of 2.4 cfs measured at  the old station, there was a  flow of 8.4cfs at the new station. The low! flow recorded at  the new station in 1970 was  7.9 cfs, while in 1971 it was  13.3 cfs and in 1972 it was  8.9 cfs. While we only have  these three years of results  from an accurate station, the  previous conclusion with respect to the accuracy of the  low flows recorded at the old  station has been substantiated.  Our advice, therefore, is  that the Commercial Fisheries  branch be advised to disregard,  the low flows recorded at the  old Chapman Creek guage because the recorded results are  far  lowter  than  actual flows.  Secondly, we advise that  you concur with the Fisheries  branch that preservation of  the spawning grounds and  rearing areas is of prime importance to the district, but  that limitation of withdrawals  from the creek to between  . Nov. 1 and. July 14 is not practical or possible for a waterworks utility.

These storage works  would be designed to maintain a minimum flow of compensation water in the creek  at all times.  Lastly, you should advise  that these storage works would  not be constructed for some  years, depending on growth  of the area, and extensions  to the present system. Similarly, the entire flow applied,  for in the water license would  not be diverted for some years  and your current application  is merely the first stage in a  program to protect and' provide for regional water supply  to the Sunshine Coast.  lOharles Gooding, board secretary-treasurer, informed the  directors that aijr^ngements  are under way for a Chapman  Creek meeting with the fisheries people and' other federal  and provincial officials including forestry officials.

Fire protection  area extended  Expansion of Gibsons area  fire services to include the  YMCA Camp Elphinstone and  a proposed home sub-division  development was discussed at  last Week's Regional board  meeting. The result was that  an arrangement has been  agreed to that the fire protection in that vicinity be extended, one district lot. This  would take in the camp and!  subdivision.  Another arrangement was  was that the Y authorities set  aside a parcel of land for construction of a firehall which  at first would! have sufficient  fire equipment to use until  the fire equipment from Gibf*  sons could arrive. The hall  could be expanded later to  contain heavier eqittp-hent.     ;  Because of these negotiations the^ Howe Sound Iftre  district was unable to clear  its budget so^it could -be presented to the Regional board  for inclusion in the 1973 budget. This will be done; as soon  as possible.  Roberts Creek is also seeking further fire equipment and  wants the front apron of the  firehall paved for the easier  handling of equipment. It  could obtain further equipment on the basis of a five  year loan of $12,000 or less.

According to Dr. Denys  Ford, research director for  OARS, who heads the Division  of Rheumatology at the University of B.C., aspirin is a  safe drug (providing it is not  mixed with phehacetin), and  should be prescribed in large  doses, continuously for patients  with rheumatoid arthritis as  it not only relieves pain, but  also - reduces inflammation  which is what causes joint  damage.  Dr. Ford is also chairman  of the pharmacy committees  at Vancouver General Hospital and ihe B.C. Medical Association.

Don't do it. This  is usually a fatal error. Our  law concerning the wording  of wills is very strict - to prevent frauds. See a lawyer -  his fee will not foe large for  this.  A holograph will is not  valid in B.C. A holograph will  is one that is unwitnessed and  written entirely in the hand  writing of the deceased.  The following are the most  common errors in the Home  Made -will:  (il) Failing to appoint an  executor. This involves extra  expense in having an administrator appointed foy the court  and the posting of a bond  equal to the value of the estate, or obtaining a court dispensing   with   same.  (2) Not having two witnesses sign a typewritten will  This invalidates the entire  will.  (3). Leaving a gift to a witness or his spouse, this invalidates   the   gift,  (4) Failing to leave the entire estate, that is, failing to  include a clause dealing with  the residue. This means that  portion may go to someone  that the deceased never intended it to go to at all.  (5) Altering the will without witnesses - they must foe  the original two witnesses. It  is preferable to draw an amending document (known as a  codicil) which may foe witnessed by any two witnesses, or  better still, an entirely new  will.  It costs far more to have  these * problems ironed out  later than to employ a lawyer  initially. At lawyer's conventions, a toast is often made to  people   who   draw' their   own  - Wills;  We thought it would be help  ful to discuss the general nature of a contract or agreement.  A contract is simply an  agreement ^between two or -  more persons which is enforceable at law. Every day most  persons make one or more  contracts, every purchase at  a store, every time we take a  bus ride, every time we engage someone to perform  some service for us, we enter  into a contractual relationship.  Contracts may foe entered  into five ways, in order of  formality: 1. Written under  seal, 2. Written not under  seal, 3; Oral, 4. Tacit, 5. By  any combination of the above.  The text books differ a 'bit,  but in general it may foe said  tihat a contract must have  four essential ingredients:  1. Offer (someone must offer  to do something, e.g. sell an  object), 2. Acceptance (someone else must accept the offer)  3; A seal or consideration, usually the payment of money,  and 4. Form, the terms must  .be ascertainable in one' of  the five above ways.  If a contract is to be written and is of any complexity  or deals with a matter worth  a substantial sum of money,  it is best to have it drawn by  a  lawyer.
