Two new members were wel  corned,  Mr.  and Mrs.  Joseph  <_rene) Bushfield.

On Sat., May I��, some mem-  t bers. left  on  the  early ferry  for Las.Vegas while many of  the stay-at homes are bolstering their sagging spirits with  visions of .'their safari to Har  waii next October.  There was the usual fun  and fellowship during the social hour, and judging by the  hubbub, one could not help  but think that although life is  supposed to begin at 40, it  does become livelier and more  exuberant with e_ch passing  decade.  New hi  plans ready?  Ratepayers association members of. Regional District Area  E" (Gower Point, West and  North Gibsons) were informed  Tuesday night at an informal  meeting with Don Lockstead,  MLA for this area, that he  hoped work- would start on the  new highway some -time next  year. ,'     ���"..'.  He noted that the highway  report would be coming before  members of the Regional District board at its monthly meeting Thursday of next week.  There were about 40 persons at the Lepage home on  Pratt Road Tuesday, night to  meet Mr. Lockstead and the  general .discussion dwelt on the  highway and ferry traffic.  Rec. committee stays  The Sunshine Coast Recreation. committee  will  continue  as a caretaker of its interest;  in Lot 1506 or the Recreation  Centre project.  This was decided at a special meeting of the Regional  District board Thursday night  in its Davis Bay board room.  The board requested the committee continue until the board  can ascertain its own position  on the land. One director Hubert Slade voted against the  motion of Directors Frank  West and Harry Alrnond:  At present the land is being ���; transferred from previous  owners  MaoMillan-Bloedel   to  government^ sources and then  to the Regional District board.  Until this is completed the  board cannot make decisions  on something it does not control legally.  Eric Hensch, chairman of the  Recreation committee opened  the discussion with the remark that the destiny of Lot  1506 and its facilities were involved.

Regional  board and the provincial gov-  erment, negotiated use of D.L.  1506, from MacMillan Bloedel  Ltd., land division, on the basis that the property will be  used for; public recreation  only.  To date approximately one-  third of DJL. 150�� has been  developed for public recreation at an investment of approximately . $60,000 . which ���  funds came mainly from the  public  treasury in  an LIP.  $38,000 project.  Two public referendums  have been held for construction and maintenance of an  Ice Rink, even though each referendum was defeated by a  narrow margin, the project is  still very much alive and' promising, the Recreation committee maintains.  Vancouver. Lands coi_���iis-  . sion records' indicate 'that the  .Sunshine Coast Regional- District had applied to acquire a  portion of the the lot..  In early April the Regional  board applied for a portion of  Lot 1506, Group 1 and learned  from the Lands branch that  the department was prepared  to consider disposition otf the  area located west of "Clack  Creek to the Regional District.  The balance of the lot/would  be held under reserve until  actual development was possible. ��� :-';'->-:  in  , A $400,000 home building  project involving .43 lots at the  highway entrance .to. the  YMCA camp is underway with  ground being cleared for future homebuilding.

They cover ambulance services, medical clinics and health care seryices.-  The ambulance service questionnaire asks for public opinion on the type of ambulance  service the public would like.  There are 18 questions to be  answered.  Th medical clinic questionnaire seeks to ascertain if further public service is required  beyond what St. Mary's hospital now offers. Should there be  first aid! stations, community  . health centres or what?  The health care questionnaire seeks what additional  care services are needed  regardless of age or condition  of health.  The questionnaires are in  the hands of board directors,  ratepayer organizations and  others who have passed copies  on to other persons for their  opinions.  Hon, Dennis G.

Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.  An agreeable choice  What should happen to the work already done oh  the proposed Recreation Centre at Roberts Creek? Why  should improvements costing something like $50,000 be  frittered away through lack of continuing policy?  These are problems that were tackled by members  of the-Regional District board at its special meeting  Thursday night of last week when the future of the  Recreation Committee was the paramount issue.  The Recreation Committee, valiantly fighting an uphill battle for a community recreation centre has reached  a point where it and the authorities administering our  land laws must get together for mutual protection.  Upshot of the special meeting was that the board decided the committee should continue its responsibility as  a recreation committee until the board is in a better  position to decide on policy. The reason for this is that the  land is not held in the name of the board although the  provincial government has set it to one side for recreational purposes under control of the Regional District  board.  One aspect which was not touched on by the special  meeting would be the future of the committee, whether  it should achieve a definite legality and be something  above a committee which can be. dissolved by motion.  Continuation of the committee is necessary because  anything which would result in the loss of the money already spent would give the recreation movement a very  black eye in this area. With a continuing committee on  the job and the Regional board being able to help out  when all facets of governmental control are in black and  white the years to come will likely see a set of buildings  on that property which will be known as the Recreation  Centre.  /       . '���   '��� Y'fw^  The Watergate affair  Readers of newspapers and viewers of TV will soon  be tired of the Watergate affair ijow being unfolded in  the United States of America.  A situation has developed in which the press and TV  will revel, along with a great number of 'me too' pepple  who will hasten to step forward so they can get into the  picture.  The travesty which sometimes develops from senatorial hearings in Washington leaves one marvelling at  "the price one has to pay for democracy.  There is the possibility President Nixon will win by  outlasting his attackers, or more politely, seekers of the  truth. Actually the sins which have been committed compared with some sins of the past would puzzle Presidents  Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, Roosevelt and others.  Perhaps some of the front characters in the fray will  be like Shakespeare's King Richard III who felt his conscience "had a thousand several-tongues and every tongue  brings in a several tale and every tale condemning him  for a villian." .  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  A bylaw to control dogs run  ing wild was put into effect  by Gibsons council.  Increasing the size of oil  tank farms in Gibsons area  "was placed under restriction  until council has studied the  problem.  Holiday rainfall was estimated at 1.45 inches by Dick Ken  nett, weather bureau representative.  10 YEARS AGO  Hopkins Landing residents  protest closing a road which  runs through Salvation Army  property.  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce asks that a later ferry  be scheduled.  The Kinsmen-Kiwanis fund  for building a health centre is  $700 short of its -$35,205 ob-  iective.  15 YEARS AGO  William Weinhandl donates  land for construction of a hall  to house a fire truck on North  Road.  St. Mary's Hospital, Garden  Bay seeks funds amounting to  $2,800 to replace outmoded  equipment.  An automatic telephone exchange will be constructed at  Port Mellon.  20 YEARS AGO  Fifty decorated cars and  floats made up Gibsons holiday parade under threatening  skies.  The Sunshine Coast Tourist  association met at Red-oofs  to discuss increasing accommodation  for  tourists.  A small cottage on three lots  in a desirable location was offered for sale at $2,500.  (By ED  THOMSON)  Jim Derby 70, and bis wife  Betty enjoy the quiet retirement of their comfort able  home with its sweeping view  of the ocean, at Selma Park-  two living examples of the  almost    forgotten    ethic    that  hard work never hurt anyone.  They raised a grown-up fami  ly of three stalwart sons; Jim  Jr. and wife iRita, living in  Cassiar, George and wife Vera,  Powell River; Richard . and  wife Selma at Gibsons and  daughter Helen (Mrs. Richard.  Maki) Salmon Arm, not forgetting ten grandchildren. Mrs.  Derby, with quiet pride, showed her crowded mantel-piece  picture gallery of all the family.   ���.������       ..-.'-.���'  Jim Derby, son of farm folks  has travelled a long way from  his home town at Readlyn,  Sask. at one time a thriving  two-elevator town 20 miles  east of Assiniboia, now no long  er on the map.  On a trip to Winnipeg 47 ,  years ago come April, Jim was  lucky enough to meet up -with  Elizabeth Getanby, a farmer's  daughter. They were married  almost on the spot.  In 1015 Jim, a husky 13-year  old, fed up with farm chores,  somehow   or    other   finagled  himself past the watchful eyes  of the recruiting sargeant, into the Canadian army, getting  as far as the seaboard before  an irate father caught up with  him   and   yanked   him  home.  The Canadian army lost what  had to be its youngest recruit,  but not for long, for scarcely a  year    later,    Jim    again    fan  away from home,  re-enhsted,  shipped overseas and into the  muck   and   misery   of   trench  warfare in France and. Belgir.  um. Surviving the carnage he  marched with his regiment into Germany for a three-months  hitch with the Allied Army of  Occupation.  In   1019,  back  in  Canada,   he   returned   to   his  hometown and here for several ���  years he operated a combined  pool hall anjfi barbershop. He  recalls thetown^of; Readlyn,  set right down in the middle '  of a good wheat growing area,  as a friendly prosperous prairie town; that; was long before  the days  of super highways,  radio,    television:, and    other  amenities    denoting    dubious  progress.   Here   farmers   and  their families for miles around  would gather  on  Friday  and  Saturday   nights  to   do   their  marketing and catch up with  the  local  gossip.  However, the spirit of adven  ture still on him, Jim enlisted  in the U.S. army; 78th Field  Artillery stationed in Seattle.  Here he distinguished himself  as the Battery's middle weight  boxing champ. (With never a  knockout, he was weil on his  way to become a serious contender for the American Middleweight crown. He quit the  ring never to return when ordered to throw a fight by the  crooked betting element.  His proWess as a boxer was  to follow him Wherever he  went and mahy's the knockdown drag-env-but battle he  was to have with local bully  boys, all of which were well,  if reluctantly accounted for, as  Jim was never of the brawling  type-  Recalling his two-year stint  in the American army, Jim  speaks with affection of his  outfit, the 78th Field Battery  "All you had to do to get oh,  .was do your duty, keep your  mouth shut and fight your own  battles."  The Defbys again returned  to Canada and civvy street  this time on the Sunshine  Coast. Here Jim went to work  for Oscar Neimi, a logging con  tractor at Halfmoon Bay; his  frst job hewing through a six  mile log road with George  Reynold as broad-axe man,  while Derby scored and hacked ,  a sixteen inch face to logs laid  on end with guard rails at the  corners. It was downright hard  work but he soon got used to  it and thrived on it, and on and  off, was to remain in the logging business for 35 years.  It was with the coming of  the   depression   in   the   dirty  thirties, a grim, period for everyone on the coast, that Derby  was to become associate with  the now almost legendary figure of Major Sutherland, a  distinguished soldier of two  world wars and police and re-  ief officer of the Sechelt district.  Derby, along with W. K.  Berry and the late Jim Macrea  were given the job of building  the Sechelt j ail which stands to  this day, just across the coast  highway from the Wakefield  Inn. . '  Actually it was Constructed  not only as a jail house, but  also   as   relief   headquarters  and business office for the Major who was a man of many  parts and varied interests. Jim  recalls  little   actual   use   was  made   of  the  detention  cells,  as there were no beer parlors  and consequently little drunkenness   and  even less  preve-  lance of crime along that particular portion of the coast in  those days - that is apart from  the odd mental case that had  to be restrained for his  own  protection   and   those   around  him before removed to an asylum on the main coast.   One  instance of Sutherland's stark  courage  is   recalled   when   a  man became violently deranged in Roberts Creek and stood  off his neighbors with a shotgun.   The   Major   faced   him  down and disarmed 'him forthwith. It was during this period that the father of Clarence  Joe a fine pjd gentleman, as  police officer on the Sechelt  Indian Reserve, worked in closest co-operation and harmony  with   Major   Sutherland,   his  counter-part, as law officer of  the district.   ../  ; As   the   depression   pinched  out the meager jobs along the  coast, want and privation became acute, felieyed only by  the  tireless  efforts  of  Major  Sutherland^ ?  It   was  short  commons   for  the growing Derby brood and  ; many's the time they Were not  to know where the next meal  was coming from, had it not  been for Betty, always the  best of cooks, she made do  somehow and throughout the  depression years, the family  was never without good, substantial nourishment, no matter how sparse the fare.  As for Jim, the father, after  all other-avenues of work dried up, he was finally compelled to join the great army of  unemployed and go on relief  at $14 a month; but with this  difference, he worked hard  and long for every penny the  Government doled out bucking  wood driving a truck, operating a cat, digging ditches, on  road maintenance ���he was  young and. husky in those  days and didn't mind turning  his hand to 'anything. In fact  at the end of two years' relief period, the Government  after all these years, still owes  Derby money for services rendered. ���'.  Now ba(ck to logging, Jim  decided from now on, he'd fee  his own boss, no more of the  uncertainty of working for  someone else and frbm that  day forward^ that's how it's  been.  In '41 he acquired the Froom  Farm in West Secjielt, a 40  acre block, operate^ for many  years by the late Thomas and  Martha Froom. Here, prominent in handling the chores  was Betty, a hard working  gardener with a strong back  and plenty of working know-.  ledge from her own childhood  background on a farm outside  Winnipeg,  awelb jp/oo.s  Attaclied to the "farm was a  well  equipped  m_dhine shop,  here Jim and his boys from  age 10 put in a full day's stint  six days a week under supervision of their dad who is a  great believer in using both  hands and head.

All rights reserved.);  Strange names  on early autoi  Early autos bore some  names which, according to the  B.C. Automobile Association,  might well be considered the  foreruners of today's designations.  A look through the columns  of a roll call of American  made motor vehicles turns up  som_ oddities. Including names'  of passenger cars, trucks, buses taxis and "even' fire engines,  there are some 5,000 different  entries - most of which have  passed from the scene.  For example, there is the  Apple of 1909 vintage. The  American Chocolate was produced in 1903 and the Available came out in 1910.  Other rare names on the  list include: Black Crow (1905  Bob Cat (1923), Calorie (19  04), Coyote (1909), Desert  Flyer (1908), Energetic (1909),  Fishtoack (1912), Goodspeed  (11922), Gopher (1911), Izzer  (1911), Longest (1912), Might-  y Michigan (1911), O-We-Go  (1914), Silent Khight (1912),  and on and on.  And - as if to prove there's  nothing new under the sun -  there was a Comet in 1917 and  a Falcon as long ago as 1909.

Air-watch days recalled  On the living room wall of  the Johnny Wilson's apartment  on South Fletcher, hangs a framed citation signed by"R.C.A.F  Marshall, Chief of Staff Hugh  Campbell. This special air'  force commendation awarded  to Mrs. Vi. Wilson, in recognition of ten years' service, 1950-  60 as volunteer area-chief  from Pender Harbor to Port  Mellon of the RCAF Air-  ground   Observer Corps.  Mrs. Wilson still -wears the  ten-year RCAF medallion a-  long with the 25-year Royal  Canadian Legion pin on her  blue serge Legion jacket.  It began during the time of  the Russian atomic bomb jitters when Fred Feeney conned  her into the job. Fortunately  she had the assistance of faith  ful spotters stationed from  Pender Harbor all along i the  Coast, with special help from  Mrs. Chris Beacon. Her job  was to report the presence of  any aircraft movement direct  to RCAF Command Headquarters in Vancouver. This was  done by way of special direct  line to the pilot room.  Volunteer Observer Corps  listening posts were spotted  strategically across Canada  and up in the far north and  south to the border long before the establishment of the  sophisticated Dew Line and  Early Warning networks. In  the immediate Sunshine Coast  sector the presence of unidentified aircraft were first picked  up at Powell River, then car  ried along to listening posts at  Pender Harbor, Gibsons, and  then direct to central command, Vancouver.  Among the spotters was a  special observer stationed on  Gower Point, who had the entire sweep of the straits, clear  across to Nanaimo. This was a  particularly busy observation  station which in addition to  casual air traffic, kept track  of all daily flights to and from  Vancouver to Nanaimo and  Victoria. In addition to air-  spotting weekly, reports to Van  couver command added to the  work   load.  One incident in which an  air-sea rescue helicopter made  a unscheduled landing in Gibsons harbor, where the crew  stocked, up on a supply of  fresh caught prawns, an activity certainly not in the official  flight plan, as the chargrined  crew discovered on their return to base, to find their time  of arrival and departure at  Gibsons, had been pinpointed  and reported by the local ob-  servor.  There were also moments of  tragedy, when late one win-^  ter evening* in the midst of a  heavy sleet? storm, an emergency call came through from  the Vancouver plotting room,  seeking information of an off-  course jet, pilotted by a young  airman bound for Edmonton.  It was to be a year later, when  the wreck of the plane with  the body of its pilot strapped  to the seat was found in the  thick bush  country less than  200 yards, short of the end of  the Edmonton airport runway.  On another stormy evening,  sounds of another unidentified  aircraft was picked iip in Pow  ell River and again at Pender  Harbor then silence. Vancouver Command contacted Gibsons Observation Post who reported negative, and no sight  nor sound of the missing aircraft, presumed down at sea,  another unsolved- mystery to  this day.  KIM MANSFIELD, crowned Timber Queen at Sechelt on Monday.  Passion flower  best vine for  framing window  One of the best vines for  framing your window is the  passion flower. It is a very  vigorous grower that climbs  by means of tendrils. You will  need a supporting wire for it,  as for most vines.  The plant is attractive at all  times but especially so when  in. flower with its large, flat  flowers,   four  to   five   inches  across,   in color  combinations  of   lavender-white   and   blue.  In   a   sunny   window  these  flowers   will  be  produced  in  profusion.  The  plants  should  be moved outside for the summer and repotted in the fall;  or you can take cuttings in-;  stead and grow these during  the  summer  for  winter  use.  Another  favorite  vine   and  one easy to grow from seed  is   the   cup-and-saucer   vine.  Start the seeds, two to a five-  inch pot, but let only one grow  and pinch it back when it is  three inches high t0 get three  or four stems per plant.  The wax plant or Hoya is  deservedly, a very popular  flowering vine that requires  very little care. It needs a  fair amount of light to produce its three-inch clusters of  fragrant, flesh-colored, star-  shaped flowers. These are  borne on short spurs. It is  most important that these  spurs be left on the plant and  not cut off (as will surely  happen if you cut the inflorescence), for the plant produces  more blooms each year from  the ends of these spurs. There  are also a few other species of  Hoya which are similar and  well worth growing.  The Cape plumbago (Plumbago capensis) is a flowering  ��� vine that can also be used as  a pot plant with proper prun-'  ing and staking. As a vine it  will grow rapidly and lavishly  bestow graceful sky-blue clusters of blooms upon your living room all year long.  If your home is drier than  the    Gobi,   d has  enough light, you can ; grow  two cactus-like succulent  , vines ���- the rosary vine (Cero-  pegia. woodii) and the thread  vine (Ceropegia debilis). The  rosary vine has stems that are  studded with beadlike tubers  and heart-shaped leaves. It is  best for a hanging basket or  pot, for it hangs rather than  climbs. The same is true of  the thread vine, which hangs  in long strings from the pot;  it has cylindrical leaves and  thin stems with very unusual  flowers.  For a very startling effect  once a year, try the night-  flowering cereus (Hylocereus  tringularis). This requires  very little care; in fact watering regularly during summer  and sparingly during winter,  with little or no feeding, is all  it needs. A celebration is called for when it produces its  14-inch blooms in tne dead of  night. Fortunately, there are  usually enough blooms, which,  even though they last only a  few hours, spread the flowering period over a week or so.  More textbooks  will be free  Some 45,000 more British  Columbia students, the expected enrolment in Grade VII in  public and. private schools,  will get free textbooks when  schools  open in September.  The Hon. Eileen Dailly, minister of education, announces  that Grade VII students, as  well as other elementary  Grades, I to VI, will get free  textbooks rather than having  to rent. them. Grade VII was  previously included with  Grades VIII and IX, whose  students pay $4.50 rental per  year. Students in Grades X to  XII pay $5.00.  With the implementation of  the 1960 Chant Report on education Grade VH was put back  into the elementary classification, from junior high, but its  textbook classification was unchanged.

This series of South Seas  documentaries focuses on the  Islands of Fiji, Tonga, Western  Samoa, the New Hebrides and  other lesser islands in the  group.  Mike's aunt Mrs. Margaret  Poole at Soames Pt. recalled  that Mike, born in New Brunswick grew up and received his  elementary and secondary  school education in Gibsons.  Later, he attended and received a degree from Lexington  University, Kentucky.  Returning to Canada he  worked for a magazine in Van  couver, public relations for  the Fraser Valley Milk produ  cers and later, producer of the  CBC TV Country Calender  and farm broadcasts, interspersed with documentaries on  west coast Indians.  Mike married a Grantham's  girl, Betty June Brown, a  school pal back in Gibsons,  who with Mike, had graduated  >from Elphinstone Secondary.  Betty at one time, had worked  during the holidays on the  Coast (News, when under the  management   of   Sam  Nutter.,  Betty's mother, Mrs. Isabel  Brown, also of Granthams, explained how five families of  the vOBC television camera,  script and technical crew were  shipped out on a eight-month  stint on this South Seas assign  ment. Betty and other mem-  ; bers of the party found, the extremely humid heat very trying at certain seasons of the  year. However, the beauty of  the island scenery and the  warm friendly happy-go-lucky  attitude of the natives made  up for much.  Just before coming away,  Mike who had struck up quite  a friendship with one of the  Island chiefs found himself  and Betty along with others in  the party; guests of honor at a  feast attended by the entire  village.  Adjustment to the rapidly  -hanging world outside and  encroachment of western society comes hard to the simple  Islanders who, business-wise,  have been thrust aside by the  invasion of the aggressive and  not overly likeable East Indian Moslem traders who now  practically control all business  in this Malaysian French Protectorate. Fortunately, these  outsiders are divided into a  two-caste system, so as yet,  there's little intermarriage between the natives and the  traders.  On a vacation to the New-  'Hebrides and New Caledonia,  the more remote islands in the  group, the whole family found  these, parts particularly delightful and almost untouched  by tourist commercialism and  bureaucratic colonialism.  The five-family CBC television unit found themselves  stationed in Samoa the capitol  city, enabling the crews to fan  out by airplane to the most favorable anthropological sites.  On completion of the assignment there were many tearful  farewells to the many island  friendships, not to mention  three crates of choice basket  weaving comparable to that  of Sechelts and other West  Coast Indian Bands.  ���?#Ve*  Blake.

To avoid untoward development in the unzoned section of  the villages council decided on  a . zoning bylaw amendment  which would have the effect  M  s  over  of placing the unzoned area  of the village in a holding  zone which would give the  council the power to decide  ���what  should  be  done.  Further council is firm in  its decision to require sub-  dividers to obtain written acknowledgment from the Regional Distri ct board regarding water service to their pro  perties and such information  must be on file at the Municipal Hall.  Also before any further  subdvisions are approved a  professional engineers report  on drainage in certain, areas  must be obtained and presented to council.  The Halfmoon Bay Estates  subdivision plan presented by  Molly?s Reach undergoes repairs  Have you noticed the bright  ly refurbished appearance of  Molly's Reach? It came about  when Mike Boulton, prop man,  and his crew started squawking about the frowsy appearance of Molly's Reach. Even  Molly herself was getting a  bit fed up with the dowdy look  of the restaurant and living  quarters.  So what better way to improve things than by staging a  convenient fire. A controlled  blaze of course. The opportuni  ty came in a script which called for a flash fire in the kitchen, started by youngsters  who had decided to surprise  Molly by preparing and bring  her breakfast to bed.  The smoke pots were called  into action along with Roberts  Creek fire brigade and so enthusiastic was the CBC wreck  ihg crew and the volunteer  fire fighters, they not only  smoked up the place, but as  Phil Keatly, the Beachcombers executive producer, commented damn well nearly burn  ed the whole joint down  around their ears.  Production on the show had  to be held up for several days  until a complete refurbishing  could be performed.

It cannot be stated too often that  once a contract has been enter  ed into there is ho such thing  as a cooling off period. Either  the parties are bound contract  ually or they are not and there  is no half way about it or any  such thing as an interim agree  ment. J  There are four essential  parts to a contract: 1. Form,  2. Offer, 3. Acceptance, and 4.  consideration or a seal. Form  simply refers to whether the  contract is in writing, by word  of mouth, or understood. Offer  someone must offer to dk> some  thing, for example, to buy or  sell a piece of land; Acceptance - the person to whom the  offer was made must" accept it.  Consideration or seal - consideration usually means the payment of money. A contract under seal need have no consider  ation. .  If any of these four elements  are missing, there is no contract, and if all these four elements are present, there is a  contract.  There can, however, be a  waiting period, after the offer,  in which the person making  the offer may change his mind  Let us say sellor has offered  to sell his business to buyer  by a written offer, to remain  open for one. month. If sellor  cools off he may cancel his offer at any time before acceptance.  Alternatively, if sellor wants  time to consider he cotild have  an offer drawn in which buyer  offers   to    buy   the   business  from him, setting out all the  terms,   the   offer   to   remain  open for,  say,  one month.  If  buyer's  signature can  be obtained to this document then  sellor would have. one nionth  to consider. Sellor, of course,  takes a chance that buyer, will ���  cancel   his   offer   within   the  month  before  his   acceptance.  There  is a Consumers Protection act dealing with excessive interest  rates  and  harsh  contracts    under    which    the  court  is  given  the  power  to  make  certain   changes in  the  contract. This act also-allows  cancellation of contracts enter  ed. into with door-to-door sales  men if the cancellation is made  in three days.  A lawyer should be consulted regarding the Wording of  the Offer, acceptance, and cancellation and for the exact method of delivering these documents. A later article will deal  with the effect of such documents passing through the  mail. v  Credit Unions  in legal service  British Columbia credit union members may well be  among the first to be protected under a form of prepaid  legal service insurance, T. J.  Baudais of B. C. Central  Credit  Union has announced.  Initial indications of research studies considering the*  feasibility of. legal insurance  suggest that nearly 500,000  B.C. credit union members  could be covered under a  broad policy of benefits, he  said. If adopted the plan could  cover such areas as legal consultation, civil suits, criminal  matters, estate planning, mari  tal relations and possibly even  certain income tax preparation.  Study of the feasibility of  legal insurance commenced  in November of 1_72 and research questionnaires currently are being directed to a representative segment of credit  union membership in order to  help determine policy content.
