Planner  Diamond  For Fred and Elsie Saunders,  many year residents at 1107  Franklin Rd. it's been a long,  exciting and rewarding life  partnership, crowned by their  Diamond Wedding Anniversary held Sunday afternoon at  the home of Ray and Sue Whit  ing, next door neighbors,  where their large recreation  room was taxed to capacity #y  the 200 local and out of town  guests.  ��� Iii charge of arrangements  were the SaunderSr daughters,  Mrs. Francis McLean, Vancouver and Mrs. Dorothy Nutter,  Chdlliwwe*r-~Tvith - -son-in-law;  Laurence McLean, assisting in  the festivities.  Included in the telegrams,  letters and cards were messages from the Queen, Prime  Minister Trudeau and Lt. Gov.  John Nicholson, Premier 'Barrett and granddaughter Carol  Robertson, a patient in Lions  Gate Hospial.  * Gibsons Mayor Wally arid  Mrs. Peterson were present to  add their congratulations on  behalf of the community.  Out-of-town guests included  the Saunders' five^grandchildren and great grandchild, two  month old Debbie Gear Of Sardis,   along  with friends Jean;  and Art Porter, Sue and George  Frith,    former < residents; ;.' o��  Gibsons, now Vancouver, and  Pat McGonigle, Chilliwack.  ���   The  living   room   was .gay  with flowers from friends as  far  away   as  Prince  George, .  while a colorful table piece, in  a  golden   pedestal  bowl,   the  gift of all the grandchildren,  was specially admired.  A beautifully _ecorated!  three-tier wedding cake, baked 'by granddaughter Frankie  Estenseri of Chilliwack, occu-  ipied the centre of the tea table.  : The toast to Fred arid. Elsie  was presented ; by-i&ughter  Mrs. Dorothy Nutter, Chilli-  'wack arid responded to by Mr.  .Saunders. "��� :--:'������:'" j ���'.  Fred, an active 88 year oldster and Elsie, a sprightly 78,  are proud grandparents of five  to which quite recently has  been added a great grandchild  Elsie Timmarmin, the future  Mrs. Saunders, arrived in Canada in 1909 with her parents  from Millbank, South Dakota,  close to the controversial settlement of Wounded Knee, the  Timmarmins settled in Cam-  rose, Sask. Fred born in Dun-  now, Essex, England ; home-  steaded about the same time  at Athabasca Landing,  Peace  River district.  In 1913 they met in Edmonton  where  Fred .was  a  chef  and  Elsie   a  waitress  at  the  - same hotel. They were married  the same year,  and soon  after lured by travel posters,  boarded the first train to arrive, in what was then, Central   and   South   Ft. ��� George,  now   Prince   George,   at   that  time a raw frontier town, with  out even a hospital.  In August,  19r4f when "war  -was'declared   Fred;" a   long  time   member   of   the   Essex  J yeomenrjv back- home,*-after;  * a number of turn downs at the  local recruiting office, succeeded , in    joining   Vancouver-  First Pioneer Battalion. Elsie  a   young   matron,   with   their  first child on the way, bravely  waved' her husband goodbye  when he went overseas.  Fred's previous militia  ev-  perience singled; him out foiv  a series of rigorous courses at  Aldershot Barracks to become  Sgt. Drill Instructor: He ^drilled rookies until his plea for  transfer to overseas vduty was  answered.     He     arrived     in  France  1916 in; time for the  'big push',  and invalided out  two  ?years ; later,   where"  he  spent Arrndstice Day, the only  Canadian in a British ^Military  Hospital.  Fred survived  the  Spanish  ; flu .epidemic.   He  served  on *.  burial detail for scores of good'  'fellows, he came back to Canada in 1919.  , -Meantime, Elsie and the  daughter he had never seen,  waited in Prince George. Once  out of uniform Saunders went  to work on the CNR as a truck t  er and finished his trick with  the railroad as Chief Clerk,  on his retirement to Gibsons  in  1949.  A- They left many good friend-  in Prince George. Both Fred  and Elsie are Charter members  (1920) of the Prince' George  G.W.V.A. and womens auxiliary where Mrs. Saunders attended the 45th Anniversary  last February.  .   All in all, it's been a richly  rewarding life for the Saunders,  now   taking it  easy in  their beautiful home and. garden on Franklin Rd. with its.  carefully tended flower beds,  shrubs and well pruned orna- .  mental cedars. Here Elsie talks  to her flowers and Fred is well  content to. be a willing assist- -  ant.

This has  been a long stariding probleriv  with the council which has  sought highways department  help. The situation is that the r  council was prepared to prof  vide -a sidewalk if the; high^  ways department assumed the  cost of the culvert arid fill.

Council learned through Fred  Holland, maintenance engineer  that it is not possible to supply the Baptist Church on Park  Road with water piped from  the highway owing to lack of  pressure.  Complaints that tug employees steady parking on the Municipal wharf have drawn  parking tickets, resulted in the  mayor explaining wharf regulations are a federal department responsibility. Council  worked for two years to get  the present two-hour parking,  he said. At first the department was opposed to any parking. Complainants were advised to approach the federal department.  Warning tickets were suggested in place of a summons  but the mayor said council  could not do anything about  having the parking tickets  cancelled The mayor felt with  summer approaching the  RCMP were tightening up  parking regulations.  Case goes to  higher court  "Mrs. Viola Anderson, Gibsons, was committed to a higher court for trial on the noncapital murder charge involving the death of her husband  as the result of a stabbing.  A preliminary hearing was  held in Gibsons court Tuesday  before Judge Mrs. Nancy Morrison from Vancouver. Jack  Cram was counsel for Mrs. Anderson and. Anthony Gargrave  Crown counsel.  reviews  bylaw  The council of the Village of:  Gibsons is currently;, enacting  a zoning by-law. The main purpose of this by-law is to guide  the natural growth ofthe mu-;  nioipality in a systematic and  orderly way for the ultimate  benefit of the communitjr as a  whole, Rob Buchan, of- North  Vancouver and Gibsons council planner, explained following council's acceptance'of the  by-law.'''."      .'������'������; '.'  There are two separate parts  to the by-law, the written portion and the zoning plan. The  written part, which forms the  basic law, should require only  occasional amendments as certain wordings are found to be  inadequate or perhaps irrelevant to the needs of the community. The zoning plan, however, is so designed as to require constant change to reflect the growth of Gibsons.'  It is not a long range plan  for the community, but broadly reflects the structure of the  municipality today. Any change  to this plan will require a' public hearing which will be well  advertised in the newspaper.  /This .will afford! everyone living in the Village of Gibsons  an opportunity to voice his  opinion on the changes occurring in his community.  The Zoning by-law further  states as its aims the'promotion of health," safety, cpnven-  iencejand welfare of Ahe pub- ,  ifcT an��i the" prevention^Wtfie "  overcrowding of land and the  preservation of the amenities  peculiar to each zone; and the  securing of adequate provisions .  of lights air and reasonable access; and the value of the land  and the nature of its use and  occupancy; and the character  of each zone; the character of  the  building   already   erected  and  the  particular  suitability  of the zone for particular uses;  and the conservation  of property values.  The enactment of this bylaw will therefore protect the  individual froiri uncontrolled  development, and assist the  municipality in channelling  future growth into more economic and orderly patterns,  Mr. Buchan said.  Tuesday night Gibsons council re-assembled in committee  of the whole to give third reading to Zoning By-law 241 so it  can be discussed publicly at  three advertised meetings.  Easter sale  for auxiliary  ' Port Mellon Auxiliary to St.  Mary's Hospital meeting at the  home of Mrs. R.

It would be a  make-and-sell decorated chocolate Easter Eggs at the Co-op  store during the week before  Easter. Other members thought  it would be a gooi opportunity to add home baking which  would be a good addition to  the sale on April 20.

Gibsons Zoning Bylaw  The long awaited zoning bylaw for Gibsons is now closer to  being a reality. Its present condition is before council as a com-.  mittee of the whole for clause by clause reading and discussion.  The actual bylaw cannot be released until council has made  up its mind clause by clause. Then it becomes the 'subject of  public meetings when public participation occurs. Three meetings have been called for the three sections of the village into  which it has been divided. These meetings are advertised on an  inside age of this issue.  t  The purposes of the bylaw have been outlined iri the bylaw  preamble and read as follows:  The principal purpose of this  bylaw is to guide the natural  growth of the municipality  in a systmatic and orderly  way for the ultimate benefit of  the community as a whole by  ensuring that the various uses  made of land and structures  in the municipality are in pro  per relationship to one another, This makes it advisable to  make regulations and to divide  the municipality into zones  having due regard to:  ���The promotion of health,  safety, convenience and  welfare of the public; and  ���The prevention of the over  crowding of land and the  preservation of the amenities peculiar to each zone;  and '  ������The securing of adequate  provisions   of   light,   air  and reasonable access; and  ���The value of the land and  the nature of its use and  occupancy; and  ���The character of each  zone, the character of the  ' buildings already erected  and the particular suitability of the zone for  particular  uses;   and  ���The conservation of property  values.  One of the factors which caused council to decide against the  1967 planning study by Robert Williams and Associates of Vancouver concerned the study's attitude towards traffic arteries  an the centre of the village. It also envisaged reclamation of  land for commercial and marine development at the foot of  School roadi   .  It considered diverting the highway to Sechelt to South Fletcher road  requiring  e'-tensive  planning of  the  area  between  Jacks Lane and School road. It blocked out in a general way  areas which were to carry the differing zoning requirements. '<  However council decided it was too expensive a proposition.  The zoning problem then lay dormant for some months. With  talk of a highway cutoff or bypass from Langdale the planning  for Gibsons became caught up in the highway location. This  resulted in a prolonged display due to the forces that were involved- Along came the provincial election, the result of which  forced into discard any immediate plans for Gibsons, involving  the location of the bypass.  The municipality now has a comprehensive zoning layout as  a result of the completion of the present John Buchan zoning  plan. More will be heard about it when public meetings give  the populace a chance to express points of view which might  have been overlooked by the planner.  First glance at the prepared zoned map does not show a great  deal of, difference in the present zoning of the village. There  might be refinements. A further exploration of the master map  would be necessary to discover them.  However citizens will have a chance to air their views during  public meetings. It will be their only opportunity before the  bylaw becomes law.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  The vote  on inclusion  in  a  Regional college -proposition  with three other districts was  defeated on the Sunshine  Coast, 931 against and 466 for  A three-and-a-half newspaper column brief on education  in Sunshine Coast schools by a  group of parents was presented to Gibsons council and  other organizations.

Final construction drawings  are expected for the new St.  Mary's Hospital to be built on  land donated by Sechelt Indian  band.  Pender Harbor won top  awards in the Powell River  Sechelt school Drama Festival.  15 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Volunteer Fire department, has registered under  the Societies act to enable expansion of fire protection from  Langdale to Seaview cemetery.  The sum of $9,000 has been  added to the $110,000 in the  original breakwater estimate,  to cover additional Gibsons  floats.  An effort to organize old  age pensioners of Gibsons has  started.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Board of Trade  wants Gibsons Memorial United church moved to a site further north and ease the traffic  problem at that corner.  A Coast News editorial comments on the lack of interest  developing towards May Day  celebrations.  After having purchased a  resusitator for emergency  cases Gibsons Fire department  reports a small surplus available for other uses, in its donated  fund.  Sports in elementary schools  has produced a good effect on  pupils reports __ve Remjfel  of Gibsons, elementary school.  He is in charge of the elementary, schools sports programs.  There is >a changed attitude  on part of the students, and  the sports programs are a factor in this change. Here is the  report Mr. Rempel read to the  school board at its meeting last  week:  Discussing the general program for all elementary  schools Mr. Rempel said all  elementary schools in this dis  trict which register students  in grades 6 and 7 are involved  in the program. The work is  planned at. meetings 3 or 4  times a year at the Sechelt  Elementary School. The detailed planning for the various events is discussed and divided among the teachers directly involved and the supervisor of elementary instruction.  The activities . in which  competition is being conducted  are soccer, floor hockey for  boys, cross-country, volleyball  softball and track. It was plan  ned to have a district gymnastic competition, but instead  a number of displays are planned.  The schedules are planned  in such a way that each school  plays all the other schools at  least once. The schedule is  then followed by a tournament  These tournaments are spread  around in order every school  has the opportunity to host  one of the major events.  This year 'Gibsons hosted the  Soccer and floor hockey tournaments, Roberts Creek handled the cross country event  and Madeira Park girls volleyball at the Pender Harbour  Secondary gym. Langdale will  host the rack and field meet  in May and Sechelt will organize the softball tournament  in June. A Thursday or Friday  afternoon is usually the best  time to have these tournaments.  Officiating at these district  events is shared by the teachers involved. Most of the trans  portation is supplied by parents- who volunteer their  time and usually one staff  car is required- The Residence  bus has also been used.  At these events a high level  of -sportsmanship- and skill development is clearly evident.  The students' most definitely  enjoy this aspects of their  school program and are benefitting clearly by it.  Dealing specifically with the  physical education program of  Gibsons Elementary school Mr.  Rempel explained that it operated in three different areas  with each performing a specific role, teaching in the classroom, the intra-mural (house'  games) program, and the inter  school  competition.  The   Classroom:    Here    the  .*jpSW��+  TRY OH  YOUR NEXT  PAIR  OF SHOES  Al  WIGARD'S  885-9345  SECHELT  gymnasium, the outside playground and where possible,  facilities of the community  serve as the- teacher's facilities. It is here where the: basic  physical skills and knowledge  of the major games and sports  is taught to every child of the  school in such a way that  each benefits equally from the  talent and time of the instructor. .  The Intro-mural (House)  Program: AH students in  grades 4-7 participate voluntarily in this organized aspect  of school. Much of the organiza  tion and operation of this program is handled by capable  senior students. More than 90%  of all officiating is handled by  students who have proven to  be reliable and able to do the  job. Then games are carried \  on during the 5 lunch hours of  the week and after school as  well. ���'-.���..  Although participation is  voluntary, usually more than  80% of the student body becomes involved. Activities to  be offered, to the student this  year: are soccer, hoc-soc, volleyball, crab soccer, , indoor  track, floor hockey, cross  country and table tennis.  Basketball, softball, and track  and field are planned for the  future.  In summary every child in  grades 4-7 is guaranteed one  chance a week to play in a  game situation which he has  learned more about in the  classroom.  The Inter-school Program  involves schools beyond the  borders of this district. Transportation to these events is  generally by bus and. is always  on Saturdays. The students  pay for the cost of chartering  the bus.  Last fall two such excursions were to Matsqui and  Hope and the second to Surrey  In both the activity was Soccer  Recently the girls and boys  volleyball teams travelled to  two Saturday volleyball tournaments. The first was in Ab-  botsford and on March 10 the  teams participated in a 42  team tournament in Surrey.  On March 17 some schools  visited are returning the favor  and joining in a 24 team volley  ball tournament.  This year a large part of the  load for this extensive program has been shared by Mr..  J. Lowden. His efforts have  been greatly appreciated by  the students. ,  The equipment and facilities  at the Gibsons Elementary  school in all the areas mentioned in this report are more  than' adequate. The grounds  are probably one of the best in  the province and the equipment is stocked very well for  all major shorts and games.  These circumstances help to  make a good physical education program, his report said  in conclusion.  Canadian households with  an income of $15,000 or more  send about 2*_ times as much  mail as families earning under  $5,000.  For Real Estate on the ���  Sunshine Coast  K.

How does it feel to find  yourself in front of a television  camera even if it's just a walk  on bit and in company -with  complete strangers.  'Til tell you how it feels -  just great!" said Phyl Hylton.  of Reid rd., who had _ part in  the March 4 Beachcomber on  CBC TV. "You see, there I  was, coming out of the kennels  when a car came racing up our  lane and a young man jumped,  but, ihtrodudflng himself\ as  Robert Gray. He was from  CBC Beachcombers unit, and  would I mind if he looked  around a bit, as they believed  my farm might be just the  right place to locate one of  their serial Hole in 3 I think  he called it."  "So I said sure, go ahead  and look over the place. In  about half an hour or so, he  came, back and said the location was ideal and would I  mind if they dug a well, just  a pretend one out back, as  called for in the script. Of  course they would be careful  to fill it in again when the  scene was completed. Oh yes,  they noticed I had some ducks  geese and sheep and wasn't  that a couple 'of donkeys in  the corral?"  In the next few days a motorcade of big trucks,. called  Jennies containing generators  that could supply enough power for their great floodlights,  to light up the whole landscape.

Apply  ing for insurance or for a new  job? The decision taken by  the prospective credit grantor,  insurance company or possible  employer may depend on information contained in a credit bureau file far from your  sight, and perhaps far from  your mind as well.  What do you know about  your credit rating? What is  a credit bureau? What is in a  credit file? Are you aware  when requests are made for  information recorded in your  file? Do you have access to  the file, to examine and, if  necessary, to correct information appearing there?  The term credit bureau refers to any reporting agency  or clearing house that gathers  stores and disseminates information relating to .the credit  worthiness, suitability for employment, bonding or insurance of a given individual.  Credit bureaus are, therefore,  in the business of selling or  exchanging information. Their  motive is self-interest. They  carry oh their trade, just as  other businesses do in the  hope and expectation of making  a  profit.  The average credit bureau  reporting only for financial  purposes, records various  pieces of information in its  files: the name of the consumer, his age, place of residence  and previous places of residence, martial status, family,  place of employment and previous places of employment,  estimated income, paying habits and outstanding credit  obligations. In addition to  these details, judgments and  writs    relating    to   consumer  FLOOD  DAMAGE  ASSESSMENT  Your Provincial Government is desirous of surveying and determining the extent of loss and damage to all property affected by flooding due to heavy rainfalls of December 25th, 1972 and January  14th, 1973. Boundaries for the assessment will be generally confined to the area between Langdale and the Village of Sechelt,  Damage will be assessed by members of the Canadian Independent  Adjusters' Conference, appointed by the Government to carry out  this service. The results of their assessment on completion will  be submitted to the Provincial Government for consideration.  Individuals who wish to have their flood damage appraised are  notified that all requests for assessment must be submitted before the DEADLINE of MARCH 31st, 1973 on forms available from  and returnable to:  Flood Assessment Office,  Canadian Independent Adjuster's Conference  2138 Main Street,  Vancouver 10, British Columbia.  Phone:874-5022  It is imperative that request for assessment forms be obtained  without delay, completed in detail and returned promptly to  facilitate early examination of damages.  J. Dale Elander, Chief Assessor,  C. I. A. C.  debt, registered chattel mortgages, conditional sales contracts and criminal convictions are recorded.  The average credit bureau  file does not record information of a sensitive or intimate  nature. Sensitivity of information comes largely into  play, however, in an' investi-  ative report. Much of the information involved1 in investigative operations is opinion or  character information. Neighbours and associates of the  consumer are consulted. This  is particularly the case when  the report is requested, for  personnel, employment^ or insurance purposes.  An individual may not have  any idea that credit information about him has been ��cqm-.  municated t0 a prospective  credit grantor, insurance company orv employer. A simple  remedy for this difficulty  would be the notification of  the consumer. However, within the credit reporting industry, opposition - to such notification is strong. Credit bureaus complain about the extra  ( cost of informing the consumer  each time a credit report is  made to a prbspective credit  grantor, insurance company  or employer ��� millions of such  reports are made each year!  Access to your credit file de  pends on legislation in your  province or upon the policy of  tihe particular credit bureau  that has compiled and holds  your file. Find out what protection you have when credit  inform ation is collected - and  disclosed about you: is there  provincial legislation? does  the credit bureau (holding  your file belong to the Associated Credit Bureaus of Canada and adhere to its voluntary guidelines?  While the primary purpose  of credit bureaus is to serve  and protect the business community, they do: assist the  consumer, wiho is often unknown to the merchants with  whom he djeals, in obtaining  credit.

If he is a 'user', a notice on the bill advising Mm'  that the 'land charge' will be included on his ta_  bill and'the regidar 'user' charges shown applicable  to his property. Therefore, the only charges payable  directly to this .office (or to local banks on behalf  of the District) will be the 'user' charge;  2.

The report prepared by  Principal W. S. Reid was read  by Hart Doerksen, elementary  supervisor. It revealed a strong  inclination of pupils to become  interested in music. Here is  the report:  The iSechelt Elementary  school choir is again under the  direction of Miss Robyn Eri-  wata who is responsible for its  inception and has continued  to guide its development this  second year. At present approximately 55 children attend  from grades 4 to 8. Some former grade 7 students return to  the school to be members of  the choir. Practices are' held  during the regular school time  once a week. There is also a  Tuesday evening session. We  are indebted to Mrs. Norma  Hanna for her voluntary support by assisting with the  piano accompaniment.  The choir has performed for  the patients in the Hospital,  sung in the Mall in the Shopping Centre, have performed  for various schools in the district, and the highlight of last  year was receiving the second .  place award in their category  at the Kiwanis Music Festival  in Vancouver.    ,  They hope to again visit  Vancouver for another Festival  and while there have a recording made Of the children. The  children took great pleasure in  attending the district Christmas concert, and are looking  forward to the Spring Festival  at Pender Harbour this.term.  The choir has been a great  contribution to the school in  areas of parental interest and  support. This is largely due to  Miss Erdwata's continuing direction and energy, as well as  a very clear iniderstanding as  to what  are acceptable  stan  dards that the Choir must  achieve. The gowns were made  by the parents1, with financial' help from the Students'  Council.  ' The school has been blessed  for the last two years by havT  ing a very effective, culturally enrichment program. It is  developing, and in a few years  the effects of these efforts  should have an impact within  all grades, and hopefully, the  community.  Mr. Wejdon D. Epp is conducting band instruction at the  School this year, as well as enrolling a Grade 5 class. Along  with this assignment, he also  has a number of music instruction classes in Grades 5,6, and  7.  The School Band which began in early October, consists  of 36 members, 3 flutes, 1 oboe  10 clarinets, 6 v alto sax., 1 tenor  sax. 7 trumpets, 3 trumpets, 3  trombones, 1 tuba, and 4 percussion. Band instruction takes  place at 12:20 noon, made possible by Mr. Epp having an  early lunch hour with the  principal covering his regular  class at this time. The major  dis-advantage. is that the child  ren receive a short noon-hour  The benefits are more time  for instruction, and. as these  children come from a number  of classes, with this arrangement they do not miss regular  classroom subjects.  Along with this noon-hour  instruction, Mr. Epp, on his  own, provides approximately  40 extra minutes daily after  school for individual, as well  as  sectional instructions.  Needless to say, we feel  rather proud of the Band. The  children have;a strong sense  of purpose. They are becoming  aware of tlie intonation problems of their intruments, and  are able to make corrections  in such a way to establish harmony within the band. The ex  cellence of band instruction is  reflected in the skill of the per  formers, and the total musical  effect on the people who hear  them play.  You may recall that the  children performed their first  concert just before Christmas,  and are looking forward to the  Spring Festival at Pender Har  bour. Along with this we have  planned for an exchange visit^  with another band from Richmond before this term is out.  The children for the most  part rent their instruments.  Mr. Epp strongly recommends  the District consider the purchase of some of the larger  instruments which are necessary in a Band, as the rental  cost for the individual parent  would be too high. He would  also like a budget for purchase  of music for the band to play.  It generally costs about $10 to  Coast News, Mar. 21, 1973.     5  $15 for one piece of music.  The  drop-out  rate   for  this  year has been minimal, which  is a pleasant surprise from  past experience, and I must  mention that we do have 11  children in Grade 7 who wall  be going into the High School  next year, and J am certain  that Mr. Campbell will be extremely pleased to have students enter his band with the  background, these children are  receiving. Another area that  must be considered will be  that of next term, in that Mr.  Epp will have very likely two  classes of band instruction;  that is, the beginners,' as well  as the present Grades 6 and 5  children who will be in a more  senior group, and this wall, of  course, create problems of  trying to incorporate these  two periods into the regular  day schedule, as well as having this musical expert look  after  regular, classes.

A great step ��� forward was  the development of i the cyto-  logical smear which makes it  possible to detect the abnormal appearance of cells before  they become malignant.

We,  who are Senior Citizens ought  to feel very gratified because  our parents and grandparents  had no alternative but to struggle and save for their so called  old age, which started after  their 70th birthday as. a rule.  We have the benefit of a great  financial change and a new  ' peace of mind  However with this has come  a strong psychological change.  Somehow we are developing  the idea that just because we  have been fortunate enough to  live, we ���should- be given every  consideration. We are very  tempted to add that, we have  made our cohtributiorit to society and therefore deserve  the best. If you wish to believe  this philosophy, this is your  business.  It is my belief that Senior  Citizens should still be for-  ,Ward looking, progressive and  'planning for the coming generations to have more of life's  good things than we may have  enjoyed. Surely this is; as it -  ought to be. Our "fathers tried  to keep this perspective and  perhaps many of us have done  the same. It was our privilege  to bring up four children on  what could be called a small  salary. We educated them and  tried to give them some of the  finer Rvalues of life;  We tried to savet a little and  we prepared as best we could  for our day of retirement without any dependence on our offspring. Happily, we have lived  to see our dreamt come. true.  We have received many" very  helpful things in our. later  years and likely to receive  more. Certainly in the days oi  Our youth these things were  never expected. Strangely, it  has been the generation or two  behind us who have been the  medium for presenting these  things to us. We ought tp;f!eel;:  some gratitude to them for ova:'  good things have not come  from our contemporaries.     ''  With this in mind, we should  feel some real concern for our  children's children and all coming generations. We can give  them money, along with our  love but we can share in planning ftor their development  and their pleasure. Oil this basis, we should be proud and  willing to create improvements  for them such as the new Recreation Centre. Can you visualize a thousand girls and boys  en j bying physical recreation  and even ourselves taking part  in many activities? Some of us  say that it is too far away for  us to enjoy it. This is a very  fallacious   argument  for  most  Editor: Those Senior Citizens who protest so loudly  against recreational and useful  community'facilities for all and  especially the young amaze me  in their selfishness. Reasons  are given .��� the. main, one  seemingly their expected in-....  crease in taxes. Taxes ��� I  agree that Senior Citizens  should not have to pay school  taxes, but, with the homeowner grants and sundry exemptions a large percentage of  you only pay one dollar. It has  been pointed out many times  in this paper how, in the past  three years the mill rate for  school taxes has been reduced  or kept at a minimum.  Many-of you Senior Citizens  receive not only Canada's security pensions . (recently raised.) but also war and overseas  pensions ��� to mention maybe  the Canada Pension Plan and  company retirement schemes  as well. Reduced fares for all  travel, including the Vancouver buses, haircuts, etc. ,are  good examples, of the general  business world taking you into  consideration. Yet, for just a  few dollars per month on your  gross taxes you deny the area  such healthy activities as skating, year-round swimniing and  a decent, regulation size gymnasium, x :i p-/"  We see you jaunting off to  places   like   Hawaii,    Mexico,  people who live iri suburbia  have to take more time and  perhaps pay more to get to  their centres of recreation.  Twenty-five miles to the centre would be less than the average person travels to his or  ���_ her centre and Senior Citizens  in some cities are being  brought' from more than that  distance; to their meeting centre. Where there's a will; there  is away.  Some say that everybody  may not participate and1 that  lets me out. It may be true  for some but most could en -  joy an occasional picnic in a  very beautiful park. Soihe say,  let those who will enjoy it pay  for it. This sounds legitimate  but since this is a public and  not -private centre, it is not  possible. All have to share in  a basic way, though those who  participate in the several ac-  ,' tivities may pay fees individually or as a family.  In other words, there could  be fees for skating, games, etc.  as arranged by the committee  in charge so those who are  getting the most, pay the most.  Surely this is fair. A number  will say that as Senior Citizens we can't afford the tax.  It would ; be very interesting  to know how many Senior Citizens will have to live a poorer life because of the amount  charged to them in taxes. Property owners might have .,to  pay a few cents, a day: arid  those who are tenants' would  likely be willing to make a  similar annual donation. The  natural pride in having such  a community asset would  prompt many to give, I am  sure. When the gifts for Senior  Citizens Housing . were being  received, it was amazing to see  how many took this attitude. -  Basically, a Recreation Centre is a solid investment in  any community,and in the long  rnn saves money on your taxes. It is a known fact that such  centres help to decrease juvenile delinquency which in a  few years would save thousands of dollars in taxpayers'  money.' Such a centre would  bring many people to live in  such a progressive area and  again a saving might result.  Even if you never go to the  Recreation Centre though, I  think that most people will  if only for a pleasant stroll in '  lovely surroundings, you can  . point with pride to what your  Sunshine Coast has to off er to  the present and to the coming  generation.  Senior Citizens arise and say  thank you for what we have  received by showing some interest and support for those  who come .after us, even if it  does cost a few dollars.  ���Rev.

"You're being transferred, Hawkins/'  Education committee meets  An education committee, the  District and Conimuhity Education committee has been  formed and its first meeting  was held March 7 in Sechelt  Elementary school.  Its proposed format will provide liaison between the school  board, Teachers Federationy  students and teachers, parents  and the business  community.  Its role will be that of fact  finding and exploratory; with  a view to, improving relations  and communication. The committee members prefer to be  known as interested problem  solvers and not critics and  want to be able to sit in at  board meetings, visit schools,  discuss problems'with teacher  groups _as approved by the  committee. The format of the  committee willobe decided, at.  its next meeting.  Those .attending the inaugur- -  al meeting were: Mr. Thompson, Pender Harbour principal;  Mrs. Mahlman, Gibsons; Mrs.  Ross, Madeira Park; Mrs. Labonte, trustee; Mrs. Knudtson,  Madeira Park; Mrs. - Liebsic,  Roberts Creek; Mr. Wier,,.

It was revealed that field  trips benefitted students educationally but because of bus  costs students., were not able to  take best advantage of this  means of education.  Some committee members  felt each area "could support a  mini-bus on a sharing basis.  R. R. Hanna, superintendent of  education informed the committee that the board spent  $88,000 on bus transportation  in this district.  The secretary was directed  to write District 48 to obtain  information regarding its bus  system and school principals  were asked to submit briefs  indicating'' minimum dollars  they would require ip order to  have a practical year of field  'trips? A"*c6mpleffcT breakdown  of expenditure would be required. Chairman of the meeting was Trustee Pat Murphy.  Coast News, Mar. 21, 1973.

The Canadian) departure tax  is an attempt to ensure that  people who have lived in Canada do not leave without paying on unrealized capital gains  accrued to date of departure.  Some assets will not be subject to the deemed disposition  rule. These are assets that will  continue to be subject to Canadian tax even though the  emigrant becomes a non-resident.  This could include real property :���'-- situated    in    Canada',  shares    of   Canadian   private  companies,   assets   used  in   a  Canadian business  and interests in most types of retirement   or   pension   plans.   All  other  assets  that  could  give  rise to capital gain or loss are  deemed to be disposed of at  fair market value on emigration.   A   departing   individual  is allowed an exemption of up  to $5,000 Of capital gains (2,  500 of taxable capital gains).  A   departing   resident   may  deal with the Canadian departure tax in any of three differ  ent ways. He may, of course,  pay the whole amount of tax  on departure, or he may pay  the tax upon presentation of  security^acceptable to the Mini  ster.       Acceptable      security  would probably mean a govern  ment bond.Or some other security charged against property situated in Canada.  Persons leaving Canada in  1972 or 1973 would probably  not be subject to very much,  additional tax as a result of  the new deemed disposition  rule because only those increases in values arising since.  January 1, 1972 would be taxable. Once post-1971 increases  in asset values build up to  sizable amounts, wouldrbe em  igrants will face a considerable  tax obstacle at the Canadian  border.

ORGANIZATIONS AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC  are invited to Hie  ANNUAL MEETING  KIWANIS VILLAGE SENIOR CIBZENS HOUSING SOCIETY  MARCH 22, 8.00 p.m.  CEDARS INK  ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIPS AVAILABLE  IN THE SOCIETY  resumes  7  What promises to be the  finest British Columbia Festival of Sports yet officially  gets underway Thursday, May  17, and ends June 4.  During the three weeks of  the fourth annual Spring Festi  val close to 125,000 participants will take part in 322  events in 91 British Columbia  communities. There are 41 nia-  j or sports involved  All 10 Canadian provinces  and two territories will be  participating in the Festival  this year for the first time. In  addition, the festival has  drawn entrants from eight  countries and 11 American  states. Other countries cbmpet  ing are Japan, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, Wales  and  West   Germany.  Overall, the festival has  drawn 79 international events,  six national championships,  four Western Canada-championships and nine provincial  championship events. National  championships will be decided  in marksmanship, motorsport,  fencing, archery, track and  field   and   wheelchair   sports.  In addition, much of the emphasis on the fourth Spring  Festival will centre around the  New (Westminister - Burnany  Canada Summer Games, slated for those two centres Au6~  ust 3-12. The festival will jprd-  vide the backdrop for provincial playdowns in nine sports  leading to the Summer Games.  There is no doubt the opposition in this session of Parliament has succeeded in persuad  ing the government to make  concessions in the recent federal budget. ,  The present minority govern  ment has been successfully  prodded into giving the people  some , of the things that the  NDP has. long advocated.  Among the features of the  new budget that members of  the NiDP caucus approved of  are:  The $100 basic pension, up  from $82.88, and1 the $170 pen-,  sion maximum under the  guaranteed income supplement, up from $150. This is  not as much as I or my party  would have liked, but it is a  step  in the right direction.  The reduction in personal  income taxes which is designed to help ordinary Canadians  more than the rich. This is a  significant step as the minimum reduction of $100 represents a 12% personal tax cut.  Reduction in sales taxes, tariff reductions and elimination  of capital gains taxes on family farms all help to make this  one of the best budgets we've  had in a long time. If this is  the result of our desire to  make parliament work for the  good of all Canadians, then  we have achieved our aim  successfully.  One thing that I must emphasize is that we do not have  the power to get all the conr  cessions that we want as we  are  not the  government,  but  BIT HARRY  OLAUSSEN, MJP.  we do have enough influence  to bring out some concessions  that will benefit many people  in the lower-income bracket.  Perhaps it is 'well to point  out that the NDP Members of  parliament have indicated  that they were supporting  this budget and this budget  alone. Any bill emerging from  last year's May 1972 budget  to extend further corporate  concessions will be voted down  even if it means the defeat of  the government. Apparently  there is no way that the party  can compromise its principle  on this point. The government  is aware of the party's decision and so is the Conservative opposition which has been  pressuring the NDP into  de  feating the government and  bringing on another^ federal  election.  I am sure that, the general  public does not want an election at this time and if parliament is to survive the budget  test jthen there is no doubt that  the people of Canada will bene  fit from this survival.  ���^RIMO  PEP  PI Ll  C-  I  Take Notice that by Authority of the Wildlife Act  AMY DOG  Found Running at Large and Harassing Deer  WILL BE DESTROYED  FROM MARCH 24,1973 to SEPT. 8f 1973  In the following area: McMabb Creek to Egmonl  DIRECTOR,  Fish and Wildlife Branch,  Department of Recreation  and Conservation.  ugfc  s\%ste^   ' isuQ9est    ��_ateV��u       ��nd\t  Nation**    patfc***. Lake shore put in reserve  At the request .of the Regie���al District board, the provincial lands service has made  a map notation on an area  bounded by Agamemnon Channel, Sakinaw Lake, Ruby Lake  and the Ambrose Lake Ecological Reserve. This area  which is situated north of Pender Harbour is now considered  a special planning area which  will require *the referral of  any development plans to the  various provincial departments  and the Regional District for  comment before development  can occur.  The intent, of this reserve" is  to preserve this large area of  land from further alienation  by outright private purchase  or by  leasehold.  The district  has requested that forestry and  wilderness recreation uses only  be permitted. This would arrest the development of additional summer homesites along  Sakinaw Lake and Ruby Lake  as well as along Agamemnon  Channel.  For quite some time now,  the Regional District board  has observed with concern the  steady encroachment of development, into, some of the  more scenic natural areas of  the District. The establishment  of the Sakinaw area reserve  is an example, of the steps being taken by the board to protect such areas .Presently efforts are underway to- preserve  other areas such as the Chapman Creek basin and Roberts  Creek.

Players seek  drama  Get your printing at Coast News  Miss Colleen Johnson of  Driftwood Players suggested to  the school board at last weeks'  meeting that consideration be  given by the board for an in-  service drama workshop for  teachers. '  She stressed the benefits'of  a drama program incorporated  within the language arts program. She felt the Driftwood  Players group should be considered a community, not a  teacher group. She hoped some  ^financial arrangement could,  be reached with the board before the program was set up.  Also the players would like to  have a building in which sets  could be arranged and rehearsals held.  John Burnside, also a Players member, felt the talent available in a high school pool  could, lead to a drama course  at Elphinstone school.

At the fiscal year end, September 30 the bank had $197,  194,000 outstanding or committed in loans to 4,159 businesses in the province, according  io the 1972 annual report of  the  bank.  During the year, IDB author  ized 5,889 loans for a total  amount of $262 million to busi  nesses across Canada. At the  close of the fiscal year, the  bank had $717.7 million outstanding or committed in loans,  to 16,075 Canadian enterprises  The $262 million loaned by  IDB during the 1972 fiscal  year assisted in financing  customers' programs totalling  $376.2 million. The purchase  of land, buildings, machinery  and equipment formed the largest part of these programs,  some 70 percent of the total.  Around half the loans made  by the bank were for amounts  of $25,000 or less and about  80 per cent were for amounts  of $25,000 of less and about 80  per cent were for $50,000 or  less. The average size of loan  was about $45,000.  In the past year*, IDB opened  seven additional branch offices  and there are now 46 of them  located across the country.  Representatives from these offices regularly visit various  communities to discuss financing proposals with businessmen and during the 1972 fiscal  year, 2,850 such visits were  made to 539 localities.  mmmmimmmimmmmmmmmum  The annual Lions Easter Seal  Appeal in aid of the 25,000  disabled children and adults of  British Columbia opened Monday  and  ends  April  22.  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  We have received enquiries  on how*to avoid paying contracts entered into as a result  of nig��� pressure salesmanship, or other similar tactics.  In general there is no way  of getting but of it. The law  assumes that everyone will  have a. reasonable degree of  will power. If the contract is  othewise valid, - a party to it  cannot avoid his duties under  it simply because he has chang  ed his mind, or because he was  talked into it against his will.  The law, however, provides  for the setting aside of a contract entered into as a result  of duress. Duress is the use of  force or threats of force a-  gainst a person or.his family,  to induce that person to sign  a contract.  Our law also recognizes undue influence. The courts will,  under some circumstances, set  aside a contract entered into  as a result of this type of presr  sure. Undue influence always  implies a dominant party and  a subservient party.  The dominant party is the  one putting on the pressure  and the subservient party is  the one being lead astray. Undue influence usually arises in  cases involving an elderly senile person who is in some way  dependant on the dominant  party to the contract.  Our law presumes undue influence in some cases. These  are: parent and1 child, guardian and ward, spiritual adviser  and parishioner, doctor and  patient, and lawyer and client.  This presumption does not  mean that a contract between  such persons would never be  valid. It means that the dominant party must prove that  there was no undue influence.  The dominant party has at  least one strike against him  before walking into the court  room.  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 entered into with door-to-door  salesmen if cancellation is  made in three days.
