Verhulst  said.  He was assured by Mayor  Walter Peterson that the Le-  ~ gion tie-in would be possible  sometime this month (May).  The mayor explained that delays in work wihioh should  have been completed has slow-.  ed things up.  Mayor Peterson will ask the  Regional District board to assess garbage dump costs on a  district basis instead of the  present coverage including the  entire Regional District.  He suggested, council' follow  his advice due to the year by  year increase in dump costs  as demanded by the Regional  District board.. This year's  dump costs increased (by $1,642  which followed an increase  \ over the year previous with  ' nothing to show to support the  increase, he added.  The matter arose when council reviewed the $8,015 assessment from.' the village aa. part  of its,.yeai_y> budgets #J_V, >'.< '  _/'TK^ :ifighways; qepttrlment ~  "has in^forniedf ;cpuncill it- will  ere_t��>_ri^dve___^  neck Highway 101 directional  sign to help traffic off the ferry to keep on 101 instead of  turning on' to Gower Point  Road.

Vandals hit  Keats Island  Gibsons RCMP report that  on April 25, they apprehended  14 youths at the Keats Island  Marine Park for infractions of  wilful damage, causing a disturbance and minor in possession of liquor. These charges  arose when police investigated  complaints of damage being  done in the park. Park benches,' caretakers cabin, water  tank'and park machinery are  'reported" to have been damag-  f-.-~-'"-'s_ *.�� ���     _."  ��� i. '  Neric-.iSidhu,v_7; of>an-  couver,~appearearin court he-  fore Judge Mittlesteadt on  charges of causing a disturbance and being a minor in  . possession of ' alcohol. Sid���u  was apprehended at the Keats  Island Marine, park shouting  olbscene language when being questioned by the police.  Sidhu is reported to have been  drinking liquor prior to the  arrival of the police and was  therefore charged with being  a minor in possession of alcohol.  Sidhu was fined a total of  $125, placed on probation for  two years and ordered not to  enter any federal or provincial  camp site'during this period of  probation. He was also ordered to appear back in court on  ���May !1S5 at which time the  court will decide whether or  not-to order Sidhu to pay a  portion of the: damage caused  to the park facilities.  Edward Rees Thomas, 18, of  Vancouver, pleaded guilty to  a charge of mischief. The court  was informed that the police  had apprehended Thomas in  the act of smashing a tractor  with an axe at Keats Island  Marine Park. Damages are believed to be approximately  $1,000. Thomas was remanded  to May 15 for sentencing.  Lower rd. out  The publicly rejected, lower  bypass route on the highway  from Langdale is defSJnitely  out, Don Lockstead MLA said  while passing through Gibsons  on his way home to Van Anda.  after the close of the legislative session. He added that he  is pressing the highways department for action on a new  proposal.  A committee formed with  the Regional District board as  a base, including Gibsons and  roads department officials is  reported to be almost ready  with a report on the new route.  At last week's Regional board  meeting Charles Gooding,  board secretary was of the opinion the report could be ready  for the  board's  end of May  A special meeting will be  called by the Regional District  board to' discuss with the Sun  shine Coast Recreation committee its* operations- of the  future. This was decided at  the April meeting of. the board  last week.     - '  This meeting arises out of  the Sunshine Coast Golf' and  Country club seeking to obtain  a 75 acre area of land which  the 'board believes it holds op.  behalf of jthe public. This land  is adjacent to the Recreation  Committee's site for a proposed $500,000 recreation complex which has not yet received the sanction of the voters.  - The board which maintains  it holds that block of land in  r  f  its domain for public use based on an understanding written into the agreement by Mac  Millan Bloedel company which  held the property until the  turnover occurred. The land  was "held by provincial author  ities until such time as the Re  gional District board had ach-  eived the function of parks  and recreation.  The special meeting called  by the board will seek to ascertain how the Recreation  committee views its future.  The board is of the opinion  that with $40,000' of public  money having been' spent in  the recreation area it would be  a pity to see it "go down the  drain."  "l^\ *-'������ %r.\     f~~\'.  Water shortage hint made  C. P. BAIXENTTNE  A great deal of _ unnecessary  water sprinkling is taking  place which Charles Gooding,  secretary of the Regional District board terms as wastage.  His monthly report to the  board last Thursday night said  that while the sprinkling does  not cause immediate problems  it does indicate the attitude  of some users who through ignorance of the needs of their  gardens waste thousands of  gallons of water. Later in the  year this waste produces sin  overload 'situation and causes  inconvenience to many users.  He added that with sprinkling restrictions coming into  effect May 1, the board proposes to run a series of advertisements during summer  months advising water users  of the most effective way in  which to water their garden.  With a low runoff from  mountain snow and little rain  having fallen recently and the  possibility of a dry summer,  officials responsible for water  supplies are on the conservative side when it comes to water wastage.  in citv  It wasn't raining daffodils  iV wasn't-raining daffodils.  - Itr :wasv~vr_ini-g^ fain?*-w3iS_i  meant overshoes and all kinds  of uncomfortable paraphernalia, but even this did not deter  those hardy members of  Branch No. 38 of the Old. Age  Pension Organization, from  turning out'in full strength.  There was a note of sadness  though, throughout the proceedings as the group observed two minutes' silence in memory of Mr. James Stewart,  Who had recently passed on.  A donation of $50 was received from a member in memory of her late husband, and  ;'.ilso; $7.0;' the proceeds from a  garage sale.  It was announced that Mr.  ;Robin Reed. (886-7667) was  avail-bie to do odd jobs for  pensioners, and Mr. Harold  Stewart  also   had   offered   to  'sharpen garden tools at reduced prices.  Ways and means of increas  ing revenue >��� were discussed,  :.-.and-it^wasitrni_nimou_ly';agi5ee^  to start a Birthday Box, each  member contributing annually  according to age.  Discussion ensued regarding travel plans, and it was  full steam ahead via bus and  air, the first tour being slated  for Victoria on May 8; a trip  to Reno on May 18, and on  October >��, it will be Hawaii.  The annual Spring tea was  announced for the end of April  and a few days later a carpet  bowling tournament in the  new Legion hall; then in July  the Power Squadron club has  offered to transport the group  to Keats' Island for a picnic.  The next general meeting  will be held May 14 instead of  May 21, as this is a statutory  holiday. At the conclusion of  the business period, the members enjoyed a social hour con  sisting of tea, talk and fellowship.  ��� ������i  meeting  The Association for Children  with Learning Disabilities request to the school board for  a continuation of the ten point  program approved last November resulted in the matter  being referred to a special  combined meeting of the  school board's finance and edu  cation ccmnnittees Friday in  the board office.  At the April 12 meeting of  the board'the proposition_of a  $10,000 program was discussed  fully. It was then decided that  a report should be prepared  for the committee set up by  the minister of health, outlining the need for psychiatric  services for this district.  Chairman'Mrs. A Labonte re  ported that the superintendent  of administrative services, Mr.  L. Canty approved tentatively  the board's recent $600,000 referendum and that the referendum be put to voters in the  November municipal elections,  providing departmental planners approve the proposals and  costs.  The Madeira Park school  area  drainage problem is no  further ahead as the highways  department has informed the  board that the board would be  responsible for damage if the  ditch is filled in.  A letter from Mr. and Mrs.  Rae and Mr. and Mrs. Lee requesting a band program for  Pender Harbor schools and fu-  ture staff hirings to include  qualifications for band instruc  tions was referred to the district siiperitendent.  The chairman discussing the  safety problem created by the  ditch fronting __phinstone  school When starting in September Elphinstone pupils will  trek to the former Elemetary  school building, urged that a  crosswalk be designated in  front of the school so students  will have a means of crossing  the highway.  Trustee P. Prescesky reporting on Principle D. Montgomery's request that the proposed  Kinsmen swimming pool be established on high school  grounds was rejected. It was  suggested that the Kinsmen be  asked to consider a village-  owned, five acre site near the  theatre as a better location.  C.    P.    Ballentine,    better  known as Bal, builder, of the  Bal block in Gibsons, died in  Vancouver Saturday morning.  He7 was in his 85th year.1 __e~  leaves   his ' wife -~ Mildred, - "a  daughter, Mrs. Peggy - Munro,  sons Jack of Toronto and Bob  of Sarnia, eight, grandchildren .  and  five  great-grandchildren.  A  private funeral  was  held.  Bal,   as  he   was   generally  known, was one of the ano-ft^  active  workers-for the - community  the, district  has  had. .  He started "as ~ a summer vacationer and' bought up smaller  homes in * the area then set up  a ^pensioner .or- vacationer ha���  yen?*;7r >\ s .* - ^ t ---_-    - __-  He developed" property he  had purchased in the village  centre and built a row of  houses now; opposite the Bank  of Montreal on Marine Drive.  Later he built what. is . now  known .as .Bal's block. The  present building is the second  the first having, been destroyed, by fire in August, 1958. The  firer.was a spectacular, one for  Gibsons, burning all night long  Bal's entry to Gibsons was  via his route as a drummer  back in the early 20s, selling  clothing, representing a company in Vancouver of which he  was a memlber.  He became active municipally and served as a member of  Gibsons council for several  years; His pet occupation as a  member of council was roads  and there were times when he  and the rest of council did not  see quite eye-to-eye. However  iri spite of strenuous argument  council obtained good roads  in the. right places.  He had a strong, interest in  the Fair board of the Farmers' Institute and when this  board strived to have an agriculture hall built, Bal was in  ;_the forefront, obtaining public  property on Park Road. Then  along came the Centennial  years and the Fair board proposal expanded into a Centennial project which eventually developed, into Brothers  Memorial Park. This park has  been a centre of sports activities for several years.  Cooper's Green?  What is happening to Cooper's Green? This question was  asked at last week's monthly  Regional District board, meeting. To date, according to  what the board understands  nothing is definite about the  area becoming a public park.  The board also heard that  a tidal lagoon on the property  is being filled in by James  Cooper owner of the property.  It was suggested that tidal lagoons must remain as tidal lagoons and not filled in.  This year's school mill rate  at 28.75 mills is up 1.51 above  last year's 27.24 mills. With an  assessment increase of 5.7 per  cent arid a boost in the homeowner grant most taxpayers  will not feel it, board officials  expect. ..-..- . ' ,',.'.  .The mill rate was announced  at last week's meeting of the  school board when under the  chairmanship of Mrs. M.fLa-j  bonte, the secretary-treasurer  J.S. Metzler presented���".���'.the tax  rate bylaw which was adopted"  on motion of Trustees J. Mac  Leod and Terry Booth.  The amount to be raised is  $1,906,835. The rural section  will provide $1,706,005; Gibsons village $136,185 and Sechelt  $66,445.  Total school board district  assessment values for this year  are; $$66,326,411 and for last  year $62,720,529. The assessment increase is up by about  5.7%. ,,,;,-; :;;W:-  The operating section in this  year's $1,906,835 budget will  absorb ;$2,p24;757,the difference being made up with a de-  partmental grant of $338,935.  Close to 85 percent of the oper  ational budget is taken up in  salaries and. wages, to. teachers  maintenance ' and administrative staff.  Costly homes  being built  Expensive, homes are being  constructed on the Sunshine  Coast, F. A. Reyburn, Regional  District building inspector reported to the April Regional  board meeting. He said three  such homes" in the 2,300 to  2,600 square foot area with  values from $60,000 to $80,000.  / Regional Distrist building to  the end- of April this year totals $1,434,000 compared with  $1,173,200  for  1972..     .  Mr. Reylburn reported he  had delayed issuance of a  building permit for a $80,000  home in Redroofs area suggest  ing. that the owner obtains a ���*  soil stability report before pro  ceeding further. The site could  be in a slide area.  Building is still concentrated in the area from West Sechelt to Pender Harbor with  37 out of a total all area 55  homes going up since Jan.I.  Commercial construction is ex  tremely low.  The board's planning committee,' on the subject of soil  stability, notes there are flood  plains in the area, adjacent to  tidal waters and suggests survey ers should find, out the extent of such areas.  Vicar faces  hospital trip  Rev. David Brown, vicar of  St. Bartholomew's Anglican, is  due to enter the Heather. Pavilion, Vancouver General, for  abdominal surgery this week.  On the question of flowers,  the Vicar urges that anyone inclined to send floral tokens,  along with get-well-soon cards  please omit the well-intentioned bouquets and simply send  a cheque or bank note to their  own particular church, favorite charity, lodge or service  club.  In his absence, Canon Mirito  Swan and Rev. Dennis Popple  will supply, with Rev. Jim  Williamson of Gibsons United  Church, who,has volunteered  his services as stand-by. 3     Coast News, May 2, 1973.

B.C,  More on teacher aides  The latest Education B.C., published by the B.G.  School Trustees association contains an article on the  teacher aide problem which created a disturbance in this  school district recently. As the article expresses the trustee point of view it is something which should be pub-,  lished for local consideration.  Under the heading Teacher Aides ��� Definition of  teaching, a jurisdictional problem ��� this article follows:  The scene is an elementary classroom. Present are  31 children and two adults. One adult is distributing  mimeographed worksheets, and the other is helping a  child with poor small-muscle control to tie up his runners.  Which of these adults is teaching?  Second scene: one adult is working with the class on  arithmetic problems while the other is calming down a  small girl who is upset oyer a real or imagined disaster.  Which of these adults is teaching?  The elusive definition of the teaching act seems im-  possibble to establish when the question of teacher competence and evaluation is raised. But when the issue  boils down to a matter of union jurisdiction, the problem is quickly solved.  A document recently distributed to all B.C. teachers  by the Representative Assembly of the B.C. Teachers  Federation implies that the whole problem of defining  'teaching' has now been resolved. "One-to-one teaching,  remedial teaching and small group teaching are not to  be handled by aides," said the document.  At a time when people are realizing that the written  curriculum is only a fraction of what children really  learn in school, and that the hidden curriculum is probably more significant for the personal development of  the child, it is fascinating to witness the leaders of the  teaching profession make the assumption that "instruction" is the only process that takes place^in tide classroom.  In fact, the very presence of anotheradult in the  classroom is part of the learning process. The human compassion and concern demonstrated by a totally 'unqualified' aide could very well be helping the child to learn  more about values and human relationships than the curriculum being taught by the teacher.  The issue arose again in recent months because  school districts are employing teacher aides under the  Local Initiatives Program. The response of the Teachers  Federation to this influx of teacher aides is typical.of  the shipyard union reaction to jurisdictional disputes in  the late 1940s.  In medicine, engineering and in the trades, the principle of differentiation of functions according to the degree of skill required for the job has progressed substantially. It is regretable that the limited progress made in  this direction in recent years in our schools should receive such a serious set-back. The set-back is not based  on educational grounds, nor is it based on the traditional  reason that non-certified people could somehow 'damage' students. It comes purely for union jurisdictional  reasons.  Perhaps the leaders of the teaching profession should  discuss this problem with a Master Plumber. He will  tell them that a helper can perform many useful tasks  without threatening the master's self-image or security.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Due to overcrowding conditions St. Mary's Hospital has  been raised from a 35 bed hos  pital to a 50 bed unit.  The 1968 school mill rate  will be 34.98 compared to 30.  63 last year, an increase of 4.35  mills.  The big new ferry Sunshine  Coast Queen will make its  first public run May 5.  10 YEARS AGO  Pender Harbor Auto Court  office premises were destroyed in a fire causing $40,000  damage.  The Sunshine Coast Tourist  association complains of the  poor support offered by Powell  River  organizations.  Gooldrup Boat Works of Gib  sons launched its 10th newly  constructed boat.  15 YEARS AGO  Debate     on     which    Gibsons  roads should be paved resulted  in   council   deciding   to   take,  another look at them.  New bleachers are being con  structed in Sechelt's Hackett  Park as a Centennial project.  This year's Sechelt May Day  celebration will have two  queens by adding one from  the Indian Band.  20 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's Board of Trade decides to object to any increase  in water rates for the village.  Sechelt's Fire Chief Fred  Mills asks for public support  in obtaining a new fire truck.  The District PTA plans a  panel discussion on are you get  ting the education you want  for your children.  Editor:   My  subscription   to  your paper was justifiied  when I read the letters you  saw fit to run. as the pros and  cons of the late Recreation  project. Surely some editors  would have cast some in the  waste basket. I have to admire   your   impartiality.  Since I was a negative one  in that issue I ;feel my two  bits worth of comment should  not be amiss. But, though no  s.x-cylinder words ���will be  blown out of this simple- minded defender of the faith, perhaps my stuff won't be so hard  to  swallow.  Mr. Eric Thomson seems to  me to be just as guilty as the  defenceless clergyman he lampooned in Ws stand. If the  gentleman with the reversed  collar got carried away, arid  tried to hook on to a direct  line with the Man upstairs,  Thomson got vitriolic with  heavy Gladstonian excess, of  his own  verbosity.  We have a wonderful country that stands for many freedoms by insulting, and. ridiculing those who have divergent views. Go your way in  peace my friend, is an old Indian saying. Let others travel  theirs without pettifogging  catcalls. - Andy Randall.  Editor: Poor Mr. Cruick-  shank! What a seething mass  of hatred must be stored up  inside him to have caused  such an explosion _s spattered  the pages of last week's "Coast  News".  That being the case - and  realizing the depths of his ignorance concerning those of  whom he speaks - it seems that  he should be pitied rather  than condemned for his vindictive words. M. Thatcher.  Editor: I would like to thank  your Mr. Ed. Birdhenall for  his rather pointed reference  to me as a heavy in which he  ^ is quite correct as I weigh over  230* pounds ori my six feet two  inch frame. It is nice to be flat  tered when I am the short one  among my three sons and some  times referred to as The Runt.  The Comfortable Pew application is not so easily recognized unless it is a comfort to  continue the effort to serve  the people and communities  after one ceases to be fully em  ployed following 50 years of  active service. The comfort as  far as the pew is concerned is  not in Sechelt but several  miles to the west.  We all agree that democracy  is something worthwhile and  must be preserved. It really  means that we should all express an opinion and the majority determines the policy. It  is regretted that so many decisions are made on such a  small percentage of voters,  even when the majority are  in favor of any project which  is defeated on a percentage basis such as the Recreation Centre referendum. The free expression of ideas is never re  duced in value despite any re-;  suit. '.��� ��� ��� ���  If this is hot- so, then you  have something like the presentation of the .Great Benjamin Disraeli which he used in  reference to Gladstone in the  British Parliament. "He was  an unsophisticated rhetorican  inebriated with the exuberance  of his own verbosity and ego  tistical imagination". Perhaps  some of us are a bit like that.  Rev.  Dr. Minto  Swan.  Editor: May I use your paper to express publicly my  thanks and appreciation to our  firemen for their help, when  my chimney got on fire recently.  Not only did the first men  appear at my place',<���!%. miles  from the firehall), when I hardly had replaced my telephone  calling the brigade, but it took  only a few more minutes to  have the rest of the men and  the firetruck down my very  steep driveway. Although the  incident turned out to be only  a minor one, the prompt appearance of the volunteer fire  men was a great relief in our  emergency.  So, to the firechief and his  boys our heartfelt thank you  and to our fellow citizens of  the West Howe Sound Fire  Protection District the reassur  ance that we have an excellent fire brigade for our area.  If you have to call theni out  in your moment of need, do  not worry: help will toe with  you in minutes! - Maryanne  and Frank West.  Editor: The senior citizens  among your readers rilight like  to know that construction of  the apartment home is well  underway on the site just off  North Road near the Hydro  sub-station. Application forms  for the dwelling units will be  mailed to those who reguest  them. Call the under-signed at  8a$r9344,   r.  There are 13 single units  and seven double units in the  project. The contractor has  set the completion date about  the end of June and senior  citizens Who are interested in  accomodations are urged to  make inquiries now. -George  Cooper,   Committee - member.  Editor: During the time of  the two plebiscites for a Recreation Centre in our area,  residents have enjoyed the  democratic freedom of expressing their views for Or against  the centre. This is as it should  be and I would not deny them  the right to use persuasive methods to do so provided it is  done in an honest and forth-  right maer. I am riot writing  to support either side or to  spark any new controversy.  , The thing which disturbs  me are the personal insults  directed at the committee  members.

Such destructive criticism of sincere efforts are certainly not conducive to fostering community  leadership. To me it seems  very unjust to humiliate these  people, though unnamed, most  people know who they are.  The point of my letter is  that an assessment of one's  own deficiencies would be appropriate before condeming  others.  Assuming most homes still  have a Bible, I;would suggest  dusting off the cover and leading Chapter 3 verses 1-11 in  the Gospel of John, New Testa  ment.

This is not a bad aspect,  but you should be careful! If  you handle it right you will  gain. ������'���������  TAURUS - April 21 to May 21  After next Thursday, when  the planet Mars leaves your  sign you will probably experience some event that will  show you very clearly the ben  efits that are coming your  way soon.  GEMINI - May 22 to June 21  The aspects for your sign are  basically good right now but  there is  a slight chance that  you might let some romantic  interlude cause a "clash" with  a loved one. Be careful.  CANCER - June 22 to July 22  If you are careful and considerate of the feelings of others  you should gain tremendously  at thisv time. If, however, you  act in a selfish manner, you'll  lose a _)t of prestige.  LEO - July 23 to August 23  By  next  week  things   should  be clearing up nicely for the  sign of Leo. You can look to  some slight good fortune and  the prospect of making a new  friend. All Leo individuals will  feel an easing of tension.  VIRGO  - Aug. 24 to Sept. 22  Virgo i_ once again in one of  the most favorable aspects of  the  entire zodiac.  This  won't  last too long, so if you're going  to    "make    it"    you'd   better  make it soon. After next week  things may be a little rough.  LIBRA - Sept. 23 to Oct. 23  Wait until after May 9th before  you put  any new  ideas  into   operation!   If  you  don't,  you'll only run  into  a brick  wall. The longer you can wait,  after   this   date,   the   better  things will be.   ���  SCORPIO -Oct. 24 to Noy.22  Be extremely cautious in your  business  dealings   during  the  next week. Things are "cbm#  ing  up roses"   in  your  chart  shortly,   but   you   just   might  "louse things up" by a wrong  move at this time!  SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 Dec 21  Another  "good period" is indicated for the sign of Sagittarius starting this week. The  stars are helping you immensely. Business and finance are  under most favourable aspect.  CAPRICORN - Dec 22 - Jan 20  Take care that yoti don't let  social activities interfere with  business interests at this time.  Weather observer  presented award  Miss Margaret I. Terfry,  voluntary weather observer at  . Gambier Harbour, is one of  six British Columbia residents  who have won awards for excellence in weather observing  and reporting during 1972.  Similar awards are being made  to 25 others across Canada.  Each winner is being presented with an inscribed desk  barometer with temperature  and humidity indicators by the  Atmospheric Environment Ser  vice, Canada Department of  the Environment. Only observers who have taken and recorded daily observations for  more than five years are eligible. Miss Terfry began readings of rainfall and snowfall  at her home in August 1962.  A total of 350 volunteers in  British Columbia, among 2000  in all provinces, find weather  observing an absorbing hobby.  In return for the loan of official insruments, they provide twice-daily readings  through-out the year. Data for  British Columbia are processed at the Regional Climat  Data  Centre in Victoria.  More volunteer weather observers are needed in British  Columlbia, especially from new  ly developing areas from  which we have no previous  data. Anyone interested in participating in this program  should write to me at 739  West Hastings Street, Vancouver 1, B.C.  AQUARIUS Jan. 21 - Feb 18  A start in "something new" is  indicated for Aquarius. Much  help will come from others,  who will probably give you  the help you need to put you  "over the top." Don't gamble!  PISCES - Feb. 19 - March 20  Much gairi is coming your way  if you are able to "see ahead"  and separate the wheat from  the chaff. There may be a ten  dency to go to extremes,  which obviously will not help  your cause.  (Copyright 1973 by Trent  Varro. All rights reserved.)  Like large lots  A public meeting to discuss  rezoning Roberts Creek minimum parcel land size to "18,000  square feet in residential areas  favored the proposed minimum, it was reported to the  Regional District hoard by Ed;  Cuylits,  board's planner.  There were 20 persons at the  meeting and the proposal was  outlined by Director H. J. Almond. Points raised by members of the audience concerned  servicing costs with some believing the larger lots would  add to such costs while others  maintained that capital expen  ditures could be avoided for  some   time   with   larger   lots  Coast News, May 2, 1973.

(HIROPRACTOR  Post Office Building, Sechelt  Wednesday 10 am - 5:15 pm  Saturday 10 am - 2:30 pm  Phone Office 885-2333  In the following tribute  to the late Alice Amelia  French, Margaret Mcln-  tyre, author of Place of  Quiet Waters, and one of  the many long time friends  of Sechelt's pioneer citizen, voices the affection  and high regard' in which  Mrs. French was held by  all who were privileged to  know this sensitive personality.  Alice Amelia French, in her  78th year, died suddenly on  April 25 and with her passing  went one of Sechelt's landmarks.  Alice French (nee Spellman)  come from Lowestoft, England.  During World War One while  serving with the WAACs she  met arid married Francis  French of Sechelt and in 1919  came to Canada as a war bride.  Like many other war brides  she had heard glamorous tales  of Canada and the large estates owned by their husbands.  On this occasion the estate  consisted of 40 acres of solid  bush on Mason road and any  glamor attached to it was purely imaginary. Money was in  short supply. There were none  of the amenities of civilised  living and to the pretty young  English bride the work overwhelmingly hard, but Alice  buckled down to the job of  helping her husband build up  his home and his plumbing  business and put up with the  SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  WATER AUTHORITY  SPRINKLING REGULATIONS -1973  Unless otherwise notified by announcement in the  local newspapers, sprinkling throughout the Regional District water supply system will be restricted  for the period May 1st to September 30th as follows:  LANGDALE ��� East side of street on even number-   '-"'- "     ��� " eddays.    -    ", "-'"   "���--������   '  West side of street on odd numbered day^.

After a few years they sold  the Mason road property and  bought acreage on the.West  Porpoise Bay area now presently occupied by the" Solberg  family and known in those  days as the Sweetpea Ranch.  Finally they extended their  holdings by purchasing a ���on-  , siderable amount of property  in the Sechelt village where  they built their present home  on Cowrie Street.  In the earlier days, Mrs.  French was a dedicated member of the pioneer coastal community that was Sechelt. She  started the first Sechelt library  in 1936 in conjunction with a  small candy store located in  a cottage on her property.  She also helped to organize  and was a charter member of  Royal Canadian Legion Branch  140, where she obtained her  life membership arid was active in the organization until  her death.  She was an active member  of the Rebekah Lodge, and it  was while attending a meeting of this body that she died.  Along with an impressive list  of firsts, she ran Sechelt's first  taxi service; the first gas station located close to where the ,  Richter building now stands;  pioneered hi getting the first  school started on Mason Road.  She was always an understanding friend of the Indian  band and all through the years  a close companion of Mrs.  Lena, Clarence Joe's wife.     #; '  The most important thing in  Mrs. French's life was her love  of animals. The SPCA, The  Good Shepherd Shelter on Van  couver Island, the-Save the  Seals fund and many others  all benefitted from her concern  for the suffering of dumb creatures and no sick or starving  animal was ever turned from  her door.

First date of publication, May 5  Those -who  knew her  best  - will always carry recollections  of her helpless indignation  when hearing of some act of  cruelty to an animal and they  will remember the lost dogs  occupying the beds, the abandoned cats eating at her dinner table, the collars, leashes  and old blankets strewn about  the house.  Mopa, a small nondescript  black dog, her constant companion was rescued from a  group of cruel youngsters who  were, tormenting arid slowly  strangling the dog with a wire  so tightly wound around its  neck that the vocal cords were  totally destroyed leaving the  dog barkless. Her other pet,  Dolly, the ancient cat-who kept  Mrs. French informed when  the telephone rang or someone at the. door, both mourn  their protector's going./  Fortunately for Mopa, Miss  Rita Relf of Halfmoon Bay. has  already obtained a good home  for the timid little dog, while  Dolly the cat, who has hardly  '���-. ever been out of the house and  much too set in her ways to  adapt herself to a new home,  will be mercifully put to sleep.  There were also the feeding  tables for birds in the garden;  the tin pan full of water tied  ; to the outside of her fence for  the benefit of thirsty canines,  and the crusts littering up her  boulevard for the seagulls and  ,-. crows, and perhaps most of all  they will remember Alice herself pounding the verandah  steps with her walking stick  while berating mischievous  children for throwing' stones  at her pets.  Mrs.  French knew the history of Sechelt by heart, its  , people,   its   politics,   and   its  *:' problems. She was well read  \ and right up to the ininute on  local  and  world  events.   Her  keen mind and quirky sense of  the  ridiculous,   together   with  a well honed but never cutting  witty tongue could readily call  on an inexhaustible supply of  riotously funny stories relating  to  overseas  service  in  World  War One and to Sechelt's early days..  - Alice French had no children, no immediate relatives,  and her husband predeceased  her by about ten year.. Alice  herself will be buried in the  Pioneer's Plot in St. Hilda's  Anglican churchyard.  The world will indeed be a  less consciousable and kindly  place without Alice, more especially Sechelt will never be  quite the same without her.  At 2:30 Wed*, May 2, old timers of Sechelt and" district,  people of diverse occupations  in many walks of life paid final tribute to Alice Amelia  French.  A simple well attended service was conducted at St. Hilda's by the Rev. Dennis Popple  vicar, who spoke Warmly of  Mrs.   French's   long   contribu  tion to the enri���_nent and  understanding of life during  more than half a _eritury.

On Tuesday a group Of -Patrol Leaders from both companies went camping on Gariibier  Island, tented over night and  returned on Wednesday evening.

New furnace  curbs pollution  A British Columbia forest  industry company will employ  a new type of cyclonic furnace  to control pollution at one of  its Vancouver lumber mills in  what is believed to be the first  such approach to pollution  abatement, in the forest industry.  Two Energex cyclonic burners will be installed at the  Canadian White Pine Sawmill  Division of MacMillan Bloedel  as part of two pollution control .projects to be carried out  at this mill and other MB mills  located on the north arm of  the Fraser River at a total cost  of almost $1,700,000, J.R. Forrest the company's vice-president, building materials group,  announced.  "The cyclonic burner approach to reduce fly-ash from  the mill's stack is completely  new in the industry, so far as  we are aware", said Forrest.  "The objective is to eliminate  a pollutant at its source".  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have you  ALS USED FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons ��� 886-2812  Coast News, May 2, 1973.

This article  will deal with the judgment  summons which should only  be used as a last resort, that  is, if the other two.: methods  are not suitable, or have been  exhausted.  The garnishing order is a  court order directed to an employer or other person said to  owe the debtor a sum of money ordering him not to pay  same to the debtor but to pay  the funds into court to await  a later disposition - usually to  the creditor. A writ of Fieri  Facias is a court order directed to the sheriff to seize the  debtor's goods and sell same  to satisfy the debts. The judgment summons is also a court  order - this is directed to the  debtor ordering him to appear  before a judge at a certain  date, and to bring all his business books and papers; to subject himself to examination  concerning his means and expectations of retiring the indebtedness.  Should this be ignored by  the debtor an order committing the debtor to prison for  ten days for contempt of court  may be obtained. After the  debtor has served his time in  prison a new judgment may be  issued with the costs of the  imprisonment being added on.  If the debtor appears to the  judgment summons, he will be  cross-examined by the creditor's lawyer who will go into  all aspects of the debtor's affairs such as his source of income, where he banks, income  tax returns, what assets he  owns, who owes him money,  what dependants lie has, his  debt and generally how the  debt can be paid.  At the completion of this  cross-examination, the judge  may decide the debtor is not  in a position to make any payments and dismiss the hearing  or adjourn to a later date. Alternatively, and depending  what assets and income the  examination discloses, the judge may order the entire debt  or a portion of it paid immediately or he may order monthly  payments of any suitable  amount.  The usual order is for small  monthly payments and should  these not be made the creditor's lawyer may issue a show  cause summons calling upon  the debtor to again appear before the judge to show cause  why he should not be committed to prison for contempt of  court - that is, the disobedience of the order. If the debtor ignores this, he will be committed to prison.  If he appears, the judge will  question him and look at docu  ments or adjourn so that witnesses may be called, etc., in  order to satisfy himself that  the order was disobeyed,  whereupon he may again commit the debtor to prison. If it  transpires that the debtor was  unable to pay through a decrease in his income caused,  for example, by loss of employ  ment, he will not be ordered  imprisoned, and the matter  may be dismissed - to await a  fresh judgment summons.  This dreary procedure can  go on indefinitely. The law is  on the side of the debtor who  can make use of all sorts of  delaying and evasive tactics  but a creditor can usually collect if he is persistent and is  willing to pay his own lawyer.  All legal costs are added on to  the indebtedness.  The moral is not to extend  credit to persons not regularly employed for wages. Garnishing wages remains the  best method of collection.
