He was unstinting in  his praise of the support shown  by all members who have  backed up the executive with  100% co-operation. He said it  had been a privilege to have  worked with such a good gang  and under such heartening  conditions, to make all the  long hours and hard work  doubly worth, while.  The 'building, constructed .of  fire resistant Duralite block,  reinforced by concrete, is both  attractive to the eye, as well  as highly functional.

Provincial Health  ' A_tfi6ft���iMp-_^  ing through-out is recessed and  Aid. Bernel Gordon resigns  Aid. Bernell Gordon, a meiri  ber of Sechelt's council resigned at last Wednesday evening's meeting because he did  not want to be a victim of the  Public Officials Disclosure  act,  legislative bill No. 132.  In his letter of resignation  he said he did not desire to be  a victim of the act so he was  forced to resign.  This will mean Sechelt will  be in the position of calling a  by-election to fill the vacancy  on council/shortly.  Mayor Ben, Lang expressed  . his reservations concerning the  Disclosure act and informed  council he had written a letter  to his lawyer, A.T.R. Campbell, Vancouver, sending a  copy of it to the attorney-  general minister of municipal  affairs and. the chairman of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District board.  /In his letter Mayor Lang in  part  wrote:  "It is my feeling that it is  an invasion of privacy beyond  the beneficial needs of the  general public and most of  the broad implications of its  demands are privileged information of no concern to any  one but me and my family.  "Some riieasures may be. desirable to guarantee to all elec  tors that a public official, or  one seeking public office is  not endeavoring to benefit his  own purse or prestige. However, this Bill has implications  too far reaching and too wide  in  scope.  , "One alderman has already  tendered his resignation.  "As mayor, I am giving the  matter serious consideration,  and thus ask your immediate  advice.  "I hesitate to resign because  I have assumed an obligation  to the electorate of Sechelt,  and I am not a quitter.  "Much village legislation  recently passed and others in  the making have been instigated  by me and  I hesitate  to  pass all this on to a new official. It would be unfair to the  official and. the electorate.  "Were this bill to be withheld until after July 1, a by-  election would not be required;  or, better still, it would be sub  stancially ammended to provide the needed protection to  the public that may be intended, but to me is poorly presented   in   this   Bill.  "Kindly give this matter  your prompt attention as it is  a foregone conclusion the Bill  will be given Royal Assent  when the Provincial House  completes is session at Easter".  At the April 3 meeting of  Gibsons council Mayor Walter  Peterson and Aid. Ted Hume  gave their views of the Disclosure  act.  The mayor maintained it  was discrimination against peo  pie holding public office. They  ; take the oath of of fee when  elected, and that should be  enough. "This bill is calling  Us a bunch of crooks," he said,  y. Aid. Ted Hume supported  the measure 100 percent maintaining that an honest person  had nothing to be concerned  about. If they have nothing to  hide they have nothing to worry   about.  PO vandalism  Continued vandalism has  forced postal officials to close  the post office building completely at 9 p.m. weekdays and  all day Sunday, James Marshall,   postmaster,   reports.  Continued tampering with  boxes has forced postal authorities to make the unprecedent-  ��� ed move of closing off access  to boxes after 9 p.m.  With heat being maintained  in the post office and access to  the public section available all  night long, the building became a refuge for those without homes. Now they will have  to seek other accommodation.  main of the women of the Le-  gtfon's Auxiliary, who have  taken on all the catering for  the many public functions.

Evidence becomes stronger day by day that efforts to put brakes on inflation both in Canada and the United States is not  working and that governments will have to step in and do some  thing more drastic than any previous attempts.  Escalation clauses in labor agreements are .continually coming  into effect and signs that labor plans continuance of pay and  fringe benefit increases are not lacking.  Prime Minister Trudeau and President Nixon are quite aware  of the fact the value of the dollar is eroding faster and faster.  Controls which can be put on cost money to, police, because  policed they must be.  How long will it be before we reach a backs-to-the-wall situation?  When our top level bankers and industrialists are issuing  warnings, the crisis cannot be too far distant.  Fighting an economic battle with Consumer Price Index figures as your sole ammunition will result in a lot of heat but  not "much else.  Inclusion of wholesale prices and wage indexes would be of  some help because the wholesale index is a forerunner of what  the consumer index would look like a month later.  The monthly Bank of Canada report reveals that in 1962 the  Consumer Index stood at 101 and today it is 145.7. Weekly earnings in 1962 averaged $80.54 and in 1,1972 $137.66. Wage settlements averaged. 3.5% in 1962 and 7.6% in 1972. The cumulative  effect in the 1972: increases makes the 7.6% loom considerably  larger due to increased mflaticn. A 7.6% increase at the 1962  level would not produce as much as 7.6% at the 1972 level. Thus  at wage levels inflation is compounded.  .  If you would like another example to work on take a can of  beans (pork added) and follow all costs there are in bringing it  from the field, where the beans grew, to your table, including  the cost of can, printing labels and all the other details involved  Usually it is not the raw material that is costly. It is the manufacture and servicing.  It takes a lot of people and processes to get a can of beans,  from the field to your table and all those people want a slice  of What you spent on that can of beans.  Furthermore your retailer is faced ?with a growing menace.  Retail prices of goods at any given time are to a large extent  based on the cost of materials and labor in those goods at the  time they are manufactured. In times of rising prices retail  goods are being sold at times below their replacement cost.  Under Wartime Prices and Trade board operations during the  1940's a sharing-the-squeeze occurred. The wholesaler and retailer each bore some of the increased cost between' them.  So with pressure on prices becoming acute with no sign of a  letup in prospect no wonder warnings are being publicized by  bankers and industrialists. Our backs are not to the wall yet  but they are getting mightly close when the public is in the  frame of mind, to set up boycotts. But a boycott on meat alone  is merely trifling with the situation.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  A new court room for Gibsons was opened in the basement section of the Municipal  Hall.  A bill which passes in the  legislature has changed Gibsons Landing into Gibcons.  Fifty-five pupils from- Sechelt Elementary school tour  the Coast News office.  Very funny!  10 YEARS AGO  The Public Utilities Commission consents to Gibsons  council purchasing the old  United Church and cemetery  for a public park.  A school board $240,700 referendum was defeated by 22  votes. Total vote was 950.  15 YEARS AGO  March temperature had a  59.2 high and a 29.3 low with  3.76 inches of rain on 13 days.  Gibsons council releases an  unused fire truck for the rural  area  fireball   on   North  road  Thirteen acres with 1,000  foot road frontage was offered  for sale at $2,150 and described as a gift.  20 YEARS AGO  Vince Prewer opens his Marine Men's Wear shop in the  Bal block.  The provincial roads department reports resumed work on  the Port Mellon Highway  means possible completion by  July.  The Soames Point Lawn  Bowling club held its first annual meeting and decides to  start bowling on May 25.  Frank Fuller, on the teaching staff at Elphinstone Secon  dary school is one of 15 teachers seeking election to the executive of the British Columbia Teachers' association at its  annual  meeting Easter  week.  Mr. Fuller presents his plat  form and background in the  federation's Newsletter. In all  there are 27 candidates seeking seven positions on the executive committee. Here is his  platform i|o_lo wed by his  background:  If elected I will support the  many exellent BCTF programs  now in effect. However, I will  press for change in those areas.  where ��� the aspirations of teachers and students are not'being met. For example:  1. It is a contradictory fact  that B.C. teachers' salaries  rank among the highest, while  working and learning cond-  tions lag many years behind  labor agreements. We should  concentrate the same kinds of  skills and resources in learning  and working conditions as on  salary agreements and insist  that government grant us the  same rights as unions to bar  gain in all areas.  2. The task force on the status of women, which I support  and will endeavor to implement, has indicated that discrimination against women  exists in the policies and attitudes of the department of  education, the BCTF, local  school boards and individual  teachers. There are thousands  of competent women teachers  in B.C., but-only four are running for. executive committee-  one fafct that substantiates the  task force report.      v  3. The BCTF must make a  major effort to develop a relationship with leaders of the  110,000 B.C. Indians to assist  us in meeting trie rising expec  tatioris of Indian students in  a system, Indian leaders say,  characterized by excessive  Indian dropouts, paternalistic  attitudes and racism.  4. The task force on labor  affiliation has presented moderate recommendations which  I support. It reflects a need for  a long-range relationship with  labor and an acknowledgement  of the assistance given us by  the    trade    union    movement  Little Jimmy in museum  (By ED  THOMSON)  ��� 'The Maritime Museum in  Vancouver is richer by acquisition of three gifts donated to  the Museum by Sunshine  Coast residents.  Dorothy Greene, widow of  Canon Alan Greene made a'  presentation of the Canon's  century or so three-octave por  table organ that came to be  known affectionately as Little  Jimmy, the Canon's constant  companion up and down the  West coast for more than 40  years as skipper and sky pilot  on successive Columbia Coast  Mission hospital ships. Little  Jimmy and. his boss barely  missed many dunkings when  light-footing it across log  booms to reach a lOnely family, fishermen, loggers, sailors,  or Indian Bands, on the remote  inlets along the rugged West  Coast.  Little Jimmy was well  known even before Alan  Greene, then a young priest,  just out of Trinity College,  Toronto, came on the scene.  This miniature sweet-toned  organ, had done a like service  as companion to the Rev. John  Antle, revered pioneering su-  periritendant of the Columbia  Coast Mission; ~ '  Leonard McCann, the ever-  acquisitive assistant curator of  the B.C. Centennial Maritime  Museum says Little Jimmy is  settling in quite nicely in his  new surroundings, along with  all  the   other   treasured exhi  bits and particularly the St.  Roch, RCMP, Captain Larsen's  craft, the first ship to sail the  fabled North-West Passage.  The assistant curator also re  ports with great satisfaction  of another recent gift to the  museum, a superbly hand.-  crafted model carved out of  wood of the German light  cruiser Liepsig. According to  Captain Wesley Hodgson, its  donor, this model was made by  a P.O.W. German naval officer  at wartime detention camp  No. 101, Ney, Ontario and was  presented to Capt. Hodgson,  then second-in-command of  the camp in 1942, in appreciation of the many courtesies  he  extended   to   the  P.O.W's  The model is noted for its  minute and accurate detailing  from stem to stern, even to a  centrally controlled system allowing for the elevation and  training to port and starboard  of her big guns, while a tiny  sea-plane is suspended ready  to take off. The mast and fire  control is a delicate tracery of  rigging and radar equipment.  .; A third presentation of a col  lection, of back numbers of  Lloyds Registries and other  valuable books on navigation and ships was made by an  old deep sea mariner and five  times Cape Horner, Stanley  Buckley Bracewell, formerly  Point Rd_ Hopkins Landing,  now residing with his wife in  a snug in-law suite at the  home of his/son, Vincent,  last year in our hour of need.

If the individual is un  fortunate enough to sell his  home at'a-loss, he will also  not be able to claim, any deduo  tion for this loss.  For a person who only owns  one residence soely as a personal home, the tax position  is generally quite simple.  Nothing need be done until  the home is disposed of, and  the only action required at  that time is a declaration in  the tax return for the year of  disposition to -the effect that  the home has been the individual's "principal residence"  for every year of Owner-ship  after 1971. Any gain on sale  will then be exempt from. tax.  Uufortunately, complications  can arise in some fairly common situations because the  tax exemption is subject to  certain conditions. It may not  be possible to satisfy one or  more of these conditions in the  following situations:  (1) The homeowner is not  resident in Canada in every  year of ownership after 1971.  For example, an individual  who moves on teniporary assignment to a foreign country  for one or more years, while  retaining his Canadian residence, may find himself taxable on a part of, his gain  when he eventually sells the  home.  (2) If the homeowner owns  more than one residence at  the same time. The exemption  only applies to one residence,  so; that if, for instance, a person owns a principal hoixve  and a summer cottage, only  one can be exempt from tax  r on disposition,  V (3) If all or part of the pro  perty is used for business purposes, or as a rental property,  after 1971, Any part of a residence which is not used as the  owner's "principal residence"  during a year does hot qualify  for exemption. There is, .ihow-  kever, a special election which  can be employed under -which  aft owner can continue to treat  his property as his principal  residece, for a maximum of  four years, even though he has  converted it to an income-producing use. This election may  or not be to the owner's advantage.  (4) If the residence is/not  owned directly by an individual who lives in it. Iri some  cases, a home will be owned  by a corporation or a trust A  corporation cannot claim, exemption, and a trust can only  do so in specific circumstances.  (5) If the home was acquired after 1071 from the  spouse of the new V owner.  Problems can generally be  avoided in this kind of situation if the spouse making the  transfer files his tax return  for the year of transfer with  a declaration that the home  has been.his "principal residence" for every year since  1_71 (assuming he can legitimately make this statement).  (6) If the property includes  land in excess of one acre. In  such cases it will be necessary  to   establish   that   the   excess  PENSION INCREASES  The B.C. Government Employees' Union welcomes legislation ..providing provincial  employees with pension increases averaging about eight  percent. For employees retiring this year, pension increases  will vary with the size of their  income. A; truck driver with  35 years' service now earning  $670 a month would get an  8.3 percent pension increase  from $362 to $392 a month.  By the Institute of Chartered  Accoutants of B.C.  land was "necessary to use  and enjoyment of the housing  unit as a residence", if the  gain is to be completely exempt.  ... (7) If the land related to  the residence has been used by  the owner in farming. In this  case an alternative special elec  tion is available, which may  be more advantageous than the  normal  exemption.  Provided the owner is not  in the business of buying and  selling residential properties,  any gain on disposition of a  residence will be a capital  gain. Therefore, if any gain is  to be taxed it will only be to  the extent of, at most, one-  half the increase in value of  the property after  1971.  Space does not permit a full  discussion of the possible problem areas, and the possible  tax-saving steps which can be  taken in some situations; and  the main purpose of this article is merely to inform homeowners of some possible tax  difficulties   which   can    arise.  Further information on the  taxation of residences is contained in a publication avaiL-  able from the Department of  National Revenue entitled  "Tax Reform And You - Capital Gains." In some cases, professional advice will be necessary.

Anbther false rumor  reached my ears today^ ^that  really makes me won^  far people will go ^o o-^credit  what is a simple attempt to  improve; the cbinmunity.  The story goes"that _ny husband and other members of  the Recreation Centre committee own a large block of  land in the park Vicinity, and  plan to subdivide at huge profits once the  centre is  built.  This is not true, and is very  discouraging to hear after  watching them work so hard  on the project for years.     Vv  It may be hard for the cynical to believe, but whether  they are right or wrpng^ the  committee members are just a  group of decent men whpV sin  cerely beUeve they are working for the good of the cbni-  munity. They have a vision of  a place where > great things  can start to happen for every- j  body. '���':��� .������������'-' '������  ���BONNIIE PAETKAU.  Editor: I would like to reply ���  to Mrs. Macey's letter of  March 28. I don't know how-  she can condemn one segment  of our community for the defeat of the last recreation referendum. -J  I have talked to several senior citizens who are in full  support of the recreation complex as they realize there are  very few outlets for our young  people and they would rather  pay for healthy outlets than  have their taxes going to correctional institutions.  I have also talked to people  with young families who are  against,��� the complex. If we  are to blame anyone maybe  we should look at the people  who fail to register their votes  The average percentage of voters for this area is 30-40%,  surely, 60-70% aren't all nonresident voters.  In regards to the soliciting of  the^hierchante.rni sure they -  would tell you that almost  every organization on thas  peninsula goes to them for assistance of one kind or another  As co- ordinator for the Carpet Bowling, I object to having this programme used as a  battling ground. This project  was the combined effort of a  small group of teen-agers  from the United Church, the  Gibsons Athletic Assoc, the  Royal Canadian. Legion 109  and the  United Church.  It is open to all retired and  semi-retiited people to play  bowls or just come for friendship. The Sr. Citizens did not  ask for this project but were  asked if such a programme  would be beneficial and- used.  The bowlers themselves now  look after this project and it  has proven to be a most successful . venture but without  the. co-operation of all the pre  vious listed, groups it would  never have come into exist-  ance.  ":    .������'��� -', '��� ; . ��� .,.  So lets stop blaming the  other guy. Look at the pros  and cons of the project - the  costs - the values - the opportunity for healthy outlets for  our young people. Make your  decision and make it known  at the polls April 14.  ���(Mrs.)  L. HUME.  Editor: On April 14 there  will be another vote taken for  or against a recreation centre.  It is worth while to take a look  at (1) what this really is, ���(_)  what it is going to cost to build  and (3)  to operate.  (1) The project basically is  to provide year round' ice foi  midget ice hockey. (2) It is  going to cost half a million dol  lars for Phase 1. (3) The estimated annual deficit, that is,  overhead less receipts will be  $10,000.  The area to have the benefit  of this enterprise - and to be  saddled with paying for it is  the strip of coast from Port  Mellon to Halfmoon Bay,  about 50 miles long and a mile  wide, containing about 9,000  residents, including therein the  villages of Gibsons and Sechelt  A considerable portion of these  residents are retired on some  form of pension, and came  here because this was an economical place to live.  West Vancouver, the wealthiest municipality in the province, has a population of  about 40,000. It has a recreation centre which has never  got off the ground, one of the  reasons being that the residents prefer the North Vancou  ver centre. North Vancouver,  city and district, has a popu- *  Coast News, April 11, 1973.   5  lation of about 100,000, also  has a recreation centre, operating 24 hours a day, and subsidized from taxes from the  day they took the first shovel-  full of dirt from the site.  This project- is financially  beyond, our present population.  There is a possibility of getting  government assistance towards  the capital cost, but this at  present is a pipe dream, and  the plain fact is that this help  simply comes from your money  raised" from taxes hidden in  your light bill, food and cither  essentials. There is no provision for picking up any part  of the operating loss.  This project has received the  blessings of the - ecclesiastics  and of the doers of good up  and. down this area, as a wonderful outlet for the activities  of the rising generation, but  the ones really to benefit will  be the.labor aristocracy.  As a commercial venture this  thing is not viable. So, be careful, and vote No.  ���ERIC R. THOMSON  Have a look at the  "Gourmet 8" Cook Book  when next in Miss Bee's  Shop, Sechelf.

A  child born in the sign of Taurus this year may turn out to  be a genius.  GEMINI - May 22 to June 21  "Business as usual" is the order of the day for Gemini  right now. This week might  prove to be a little "hum-drum  This is all for the best, as  "over-activity" could be rather  unwise.

As was stated last week, this  will soon pass, but it can be  mildly upsetting.  AQUARIUS - Jan 21 to Feb 18  If you have been trying in the  past to achieve something that  seemed impossible, now is an  excellent   time   to    "try,   try  again."   The  zodiac   will  give  you much support.

MARION LEE  The Ladies' Auxiliary of the  Royal Canadian Leg i o n,  Branch 109, rceived it's Charter in 1933. The first meeting  was held on Feb. 4, 19(33, with  14 members present. The orgar  nization was comprised of  ladies from Roberts Creek,  Wilson Creek and Sechelt as  well as from Gibspns.  The original Charter members were: Mrs. Ruth Mac-  Donald, (first president,) Mrs.  Margaret Glassford, (first secretary,) Mrs. Eleanor Morris,  Mrs. Eva Pilling, Mrs. Clara  Biartle, Mrs. G. Edmunds, Mrs.  Edith French, Mrs. Clara Frei-  ner, Mrs. Jean Kean, Mrs.  Margaret Kynoch, Mrs. Alice  Loney, Mrs. Mary Martin, Mrs.  Ellen OPenson and Mrs. Isabel  Sweeney. Two of the original,  members are still with the  auxiliary, Mrs. E. Morris and  Mrs. E. Pilling.  The meetings at that time  were held in a small green cot  tage on Martin Rd. The dues  were $1 per year and at each  meeting the members donated  25 cents each to cover the cost  of sandwiches and coffee.  During the depression years,  the auxiliary held whist drives  m  SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  PUBLIC HEARING  Amendment to Zoning By-law  Pursuant to s.703 of the Municipal Act, a public hearing will be held at 7:30-p.m., Wednesday, April 25th, 1973,  at the Roberts Creek Community Hall, Roberts Greek B.C.  to consider By-law 35 (15) - a by-law to amend the Sunshine Coast Regional District Zoning By-law No. 35, 1970.  All persons who deem their interest in property affected  by the proposed by-law shall be afforded an opportunity  to be heard on matters contains  The intent Of the by-law is to permit parcels of no  less t-an 18,0^ squiare fee^ D ('Roberts  Creek) of the Sunshine Coast Regional'District:  Take notice that the above is a synopsis of a by-law  that may be inspected "at the Regional District Office,  Davis Bay, at the times indicated, namely Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1<:00 p.m.to 4:00 p.m., and  the synopsis is not intended to be and is not deemed to be  an interpretation of the by-law;  Sunshine Coast Regional District  Box 800, Sechelt, B.C.  C. F. Gooding,  Administrator  who is 86 years young, has  to raise moneys 'The amount  raised' at each, drive: was be-'  tween $5 and $7;50. Coffee-and;  sandwiches weie served; In  those days money was very  scarce and every penny was  stretched to obtain a few luxuries. The fiUing for the sandwiches consisted of a mixture  of chopped bully beef and  onions. At that time, Gibsons  did not have banking facilities  and the members took turns in  safe-guarding the money. They  were in constant fear that they  would either lose the money or  be robbed while travelling the  long, dark roads.  On November 11 each year  the Legion and auxiliary members marched up the hill to the  then Women's Institute hall.  Remembrance Day services  were held there and the hall  was always filled to capacity.  During the Second World  War, the auxiliary joined for-:  ces with the Red Cross.and between them they made surgical gowns and also knitted  socks etc. for war amputees.  For a good many years,; all  food for catered dinners was  donated by the members. The  bread, buns, pies, cakes and  pickles were all home made;  nothing was store bought. \  The first life memberships  were presented in the old Legion Hall in 1946, by Mr. Mc  Nichol. The recepients were  Mrs. Pilling and Mrs. Morris.  These ladies were recently pre  sented with 40-years pins. Life  memberships for outstanding  service have been given to  other members throughout the  years. Besides the original two  only three members in possession of this award are still  with the auxiliary, Mrs. Ethel  Barnes, Mrs. W. E. Evans and  Mrs. May LoveU. A Life Membership is the highest award  presented by the auxiliary.  Throughout the years the  auxiliary has assisted with  blood donor clinics, Kinsmen's  Mothers March, and C.NJ.B.  campaigns.  Each year the auxiliary  takes charge Of the Poppy Can  vass to assist the Legion  Branch. The 'members distri- -  bute collection tins to the local  stores and schools. They person  ally take up collections in var  ious localities throughout the  village.  Some of the activities which  the L.A. engages in to raise  funds are: catering, rummage  sales, bazaars and raffles. The  money was used to support  the following:  Proficiency awards and book  prizes to the elementary and  high schools; provide Christmas cheer for needy families;  Gibsons  SEA CAVALCADE  PRESENTS  At SPRIIG & SI!  73  Gibsons Elementary School Gym  Thursday, April 12, 8:00 p.m.  The Finalist Sea Cavalcade Posters will b�� on display  Presentation of Sea Cavalcade Poster Awards will take place  REFRESHMENTS      ADMISSION $2.00      DOOR PRIZE  _  donate to the Legion Branch  each year, also donate to Pacific Command scholarship bursary fund; _haughessy and St.  Mary's Hospitals; Red!

Our membership at this  time has reached the grand total of 52 members, an increase  of at least 75% in the last year.  With the increased member-  bership and the new larger  hall, we are confident that  we can attain bigger and better things in the future.

GIBSONS - 886-2382  Extends Best Wishes and Success to the  Royal Canadian legion, Gibsons Branch 109  on the Official Opening of their new building  _  Old Soldiers Never Die,  They Simply Fade Away ��� so  goes the old army ballad and  after three wars dating back  to 1914 there are plenty of old  soldiers still to fade away  quietly.  In the late forties and fifties  no (November HI Armistice  Day service was complete with  out World War One Veteran  Eric Thomson and his bagpipes  as shown above.  It was in the old quarters  at 'School Rd. and the highway  that the late Canon Oswald  served as president, a well  loved and respected padre.  Gibsons war veteran history  started in 1924, a branch of  the Great War Veterans associ  ation, formed in the early days  of 191l9 in Winnipeg.  Out of the depleted ranks ot  Great War veterans there are  a few left in this area and interviews have been possible  with Alan Nevins and his  sister, Mrs. Eleanor Morris of  Pratt rOad. They are both  charter members and holders  of 40 year pins.  Mrs. Morris for many years  an active Girl Guide leader  and member and standard  bearer of the Legion's Women's Auxiliary when it was  organized in 1932, recalls the  names of such veterans, some  now gone, such as Archie Main  waring, Henry Bartle, Curley  Martindale, Albert and Daisy  Crowhurst, Gordon Gibson  Joe Wheeler, Ernie Low, Harry Kennett, Ron Haig, Bill  Finlayson, Bill Haley, Bob Gra  ham, Jack Lowden, Tommy  Clarkson, Mrs. MacDonald,  Bob McNichol, Art Pilling,  Dave Herrin, A. G. Grattan,  Canon  Oswald and others.  Mrs. Morris' memory contains happy thoughts of the  many good, times up at the  old green cottage, which served as the first meeting hall.  One night a convivial character by the name of Al Penson  fell off the roof. Then there  was Mrs. Penson's hefty bully  beef and onion sandwiches, the  two-bit whist drives, the lye-  strong coffee, brewed in a  wash boiler; the 40 inch  square knitted shawl won by  Al Nevins in a raffle; occasions  that   brought   out   the   entire  Four cents a day  will get  the average taxspayer  the Recreation Centre  membership of 3lj. veterans  and 13 members of the women's auxiliary, together with  friends from as far away as  Sechelt   and  adjacent   islands.  Many a late evening Mrs.  Morris trudged home along the  two miles of rocky: "trail' with  the evening's take tucked a-  way on her person. Although  times were tough in the dirty  30, _ it could never be said the  vets, their wives and friends  didn't make the best of it, taking the rugged .life in full  stride.  Jack Lowden arid Norman  Stewart, veterans of two  World Wars, both at the age  of 15, recall bluffing their way  through the recruiting servants; to sign on as buglers in  World War One, Jack joined  up in Moose Jaw and Norman  in Vancouver. Both as members of the 1st Canadian over  seas contingent; saw active ser  vice in France, before their  age caught up with them and  they were promptly recalled  to England, to be members of  the Young 'Soldiers Battalion  at Bramshot, where they were  singled out to be included in a  guard of honor for the late  King George V.  Jack tells of another youngster of 14, the mascot of a Can  adian outfit who was smuggled to France in a crate. He too  got up in the line before his  age was discovered and like  buglers Lowden and Stewart,  was yanked back to Blighty  and reassigned to the Young  Soldiers   Battalion.  Two years later Jack and  Norman returned to France,  where they saw plenty of action right to the end of the  war. Following the armistice,  they found themselves back in  Canada where, persuaded by  Norman, Jack came over to  Gibsons Landing where his  pal's father operated a hardware store in this rather out-of  the-way coastal community.  Here, Jack went to work in  the; Stewart store.  They remained firm friends  over the years and both signed  up for a second hitch in 1939.  Lowden recalls the beginnings  of veteran activity on the Sunshine Coast. According to him,  Peter Ostergard was the first  organizer of Gibson's Pioneer  GWVA unit. Later, in their  second location at School Road  and the highway, the veterans  became the centre of social  life. <  While questing around for a  list of the earlier history presidents and officers, we learned  that all records in 1949 went  up in smoke, as a result of a  filing cabinet fire in an accoun  tant's office.

The planning committee report to the March board meeting stated there was extensive  discussion on this bylaw. The  committee was aware that the  proposed lot size will increase  the cost of services to indivi-  " dual properties in the area and  recognizes that it is unable at  this time to assess the long  range impact of the lot size  change on the Regional Dstrice  as a whole.  For this reason the committee felt the whole matter may  have to be consdered at a later  date.  The comrnittee also heard a  report from Area D (Roberts  Creek) area planning committee, supporting the 18,000  square footage basis maintaining it will help to retain the  rural residential character of  the area as well as reduce the  ground polluton problem.  FUTURE FOR ISLANDS  Briefs on the development of  islands within Regional Districts are sought by a legislative committee on municipal  matters. The letter asking for  such briefs came before last  week's meeting of the Regional District board. Other interested groups can also supply  briefs.  Coast News, April 11, 1973.   9  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  A number of questions have  been received concerning the  distribution of an estate where  the dead person left no will.  This is termed, in law, administration, and the deceased  is called the intestate. The estate must be distributed as fol  lows: i  If the intestate left a widow  only - all to her.  If the intestate left a widow  and one child - The first twenty thousand dollars plus one-  half tlie excess to the widow  and one half the excess to that  child.  If the intestate left a widow  and children - the first twenty  thousand dollars plus one-third  the excess to the widow and  two-thirds the excess to be divided equally among the children.  If the intestate left children  only - equally to them.  If the intestate left no widow  or ohidren - equally to his  father and mother or their  survivor.  If the intestate left no widow, children or parent - equa  lly to brothers and sisters.  If the intestate left no widow  children, parent or brothers or  sisters - equally to nephews  and nieces.  If the intestate left none of  the above-mentioned relatives  to the next of kin according to  the closeness or degree of relationship.  If there are no blood relatives - to the .government.  There is provision for the  children of pre-decease_ child  ren and children of brothers  and _isters inheriting the  share; to which their parent  would have been ( entitled.  in each case the term "widow" also means widower.  There is also provision for  kindred of half blood and ille-  gitimate    children    inheriting.  The-surviving widow, if she  has left her husband and is  living' in a state of adultery,  cannot -inherit. r ...,:,  For Real Estate on the  Sunshine Coast  K. CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

With the coming of yet  another cease-fire in 1946 and  the return of the. men and women from overseas, the Gibson's ;unit received a new and  fresh infusion .of young blood  and in the spring of 1948 the  decision was made to build a  third hall.  Johnny Wilson recalls how  he and Dave Herrin, then Legion president, hauled the first  load of lumber to the location  in the midst of a heavy March  downpour. The structure was  all-but-completed by December, in time for the inaugural  New Year's Dance. The guests  ignored the incompleted hall  appearance and perservered in  the Clubroom below, where a  mixture of sawdust and water  soaked party dresses four in  ches above the floor-length  hemline. (Johnny's figures)  giving the wearers a bedraggled look, as if they had just  been wading through the creek  At any rate it was a good party  ushering in the new era of rewarding post-war activity and  expansion for Gibsons Branch  Johnny admitted, quite apart  from social activities, educational bursaries and assistance  to members and their dependents, the veterans performed  many never heard about services throughout the area even  to donating paint for a church.  It was this backlog of service with the membership at  its peak, 231 active members,  that the fourth move to larger  quarters alongside the old Legion hall started. In August  1072 the first sod was turned  and by speeding things up the  building was available for a  pre-opening dance in January  of this year. More than 300  members, wives and quests  with two orchestras danced  their way through a momentous evening.  BOWLING    In Court  TWILIGHT THEATRE  Gibsons ��� 886-2*27  Wed. Thurs., Fri., Sat.
