 Projin.ial  Library.  The Sunsliiiie  PuDiianed at Gibsons. B.C.  Phone hWJtm  Volume 26  Number 13, March 28, 1973.  10c per copy  - ;t :,/;'_.t o  unanimous  on need for gym  The district school board favors proceeding with a gymnasium building in Gibsons,  more accommodation and renovation at Elphinstone school,  plus upgrading of existing facilities" at -other schools.  At a board meetihg last week  it side-traeked the idea of a  secondary school at Sechelt.  Projected attends���ce figures  revealed that Opeiung .a; secondary school at Sechelt would  curtail Elphinstone's teaching  program and. not allow a sufficient program for a Sechelt  school.''- ;.;:���;       V*'  The trustees were presented  with three proposals. Plan A  was for submission of Referendum No. 12 as soon as possible.  This referendum, actually the  defeated Na r.My;. callsjfor a  gymnasium, automotive^^ shop,  equipment and; ground costs.  . Plan sB* described as tentative,; called for envelop���lent of  a new referendum to provide  accommodation and renovation  at Elphinstone with additions  to upgrade existing facilities at  Langdale, Roberts Creek, Madeira Park, Sechelt Elementary  and Pender -Harbour Secondary School. ; The renovations  would include roofing and  grounds development.  Plan C called for a Sechelt  secondary school and the upgrading of existing schools as  in Plan B ��� or a new school  at Sechelt and ,up_3rad!ing Pender Harbour _nd Kphinstbne  only.' ,'"'__ .-,/ ,,.lr^.r^_ \_'J:l . 1- ���  , The ������tabu&tion ."loir which  trustees worked,v projected 5-  year figures for a new 8 to.  . 12 grades school" or a grade 11  and 12 school fbr the Sechelt  area.  The tabulation showed that  Elphinstone's 800 plus pupils  iwould be reduceu to 500 plus  Awhile the probable Sechelt  school, would! have 300 plus.  r. This would result in a' reduction of secondary programs at  Elphinstone while Sechelt secondary would hot $e ^able to  achieve the equal of _aphin-  stone's program. It could increase costs generally in bus,  teacher and maintenance services.  The trustees, individually  checked by Cto_uri_ah Mrs. A.  Labonte, decided! unairiiinously  to drop plan C and centre ef-  Kinsmen back  forts towards the gymnasium  at Gibsons. All favored the  gym but iiot necessarily with  the automotive shop, Trustees  William Nimmo and Terry  Booth desiring to have the  auto angle included. The new  plan would1: also include Madeira Park and Pender Haf-  bour schjbolsV      ,1 ���  The naeeting was one of the  best factually organized meetings- the board- has achieved  for a long time. It might have  _-. taken some little time to ab-;  sorb the figuresijbvk -when ex-  plained the trustees had &men-'  tal picture jbi^tKeientire school r  district; projected oyer a five  year period1.  swimming  A Kinsmen club proposal to  build a 25 metre swimming  pool in Brothers Memorial  Park came before the school  board ait last week's meeting,;  Norman Peterson and Bob  Dodyk explained the venture  and said it would cost. $50,000  for the open pool and $10,000  for change rooms. 'They explained, the club would be responsible for construction but  maintenance and operatioh  would be up to others, a group  or committee.  District Supt. R. R. Hanna  explained the board could incorporate an aquatic program  in its curriculum. The schools  already had a qualified instructor.  TO conclude discussion the  board explained that it could  participate on a rental basis  but under existing regulations  it would not be able to assume  maintenance and operation.  15 years packed into hour  VOLUNTEER WORK estimated to be worth up to $2,000  was performed Saturday on  the Recreation Centre grounds  when seven, trucks hauled "donated gravel and a bulldozer  spread it to improve the road  to the building site. Sunshine  Coast residents are invited to  a family picnic on Sunday, April 8 to see the work that has  been accomplished on the site,  'at no cost to the local tax*  payer, as it was financed  through federal grants and voluntary donations.  Vacated school  ABOVE fS THE^Gibspns -Bank T  This hour had 16 years, and  its theme was Happy Birthday.  It was the 15th anniversary of  Branch No. 38 of the Old Age  Pensioners Association. It was  rather sl- coincidence that 15  iyears ago the group started  with only 15 members, which  tbday numbers 158. There was  an enormous birthday cake to  commemorate the occasion, a  profusion of daffodils to feed  the soul, as well as a variety  of festive foods for the inner  man.        ���  But there was a more serious  side also, as the show must go  on. New members? There certainly were: Mrs. D. Carruth-  ers, Mrs. F. Craven, Mr. W.  Kent and Mr. and Mrs. J. Nor-  diri. Also welcomed were .Mr.  and Mrs. S. Spires, two former  members who had dropped in  to join in the celebration while  visiting this area.  The problem of transportation for members to arid from  the meeting Lhad^ not yet been  solved, as Jim TEIolt reported  that three additional Cars were  still needed, but the group was  pleased to learn that Mrs. C.  Mandelkau had offered the  use of her car for this purpose.  The Sea Cavalcade and their  plans were also discussed, and  the meihibers unanimously  agreed to help with the Information Centre, now being organized by the Cavalcade.  Then for May H and 2, the organization is planning to,sponsor a good will tour* and each  group participating . in their  program will be... eligible to  send a representative. President Lome MacLaren was delegated to join the tour.  S���aughhessy Hospital was also in the picture. An outline of  their need of material, for a  specific type of craft work was  " given, and1 the members were  asked to save old nylons and  pantyhose for this purpose. Later arrangements will be made  for these to be deposited in  cartons^ located in the various  supermarkets.  The group was most appreciative of the Kinsmen Club's  offer of the use of their club  room for committee meetings.  Now for travel plans. Memberswere almost1 afraid to even whisper these in view of  the criticism voiced by some  letter' writers. Pensioners do  indulge in a lot of travelling,  but probably it's because they  wish to see this world before  the next. On May 5 the group  will leave for Ren�� by bus, ;  and on October 6, they'll take  to the air for Hawaii.  Arrangements! were riiade for '  the annual Spring Tea on Friday,  April  27,   in which  the  community will - be, given ah  opportunity to participate.  So, in that hour 15 years  were reviewed, a birthday party held, and come the merry,  merry month of May they'll be  off to Reno, and just when  they've begun to settle down,  Hawaii will be their next port  of call.  of\Montreal display "of ,1973  Sea'Cavalcade winning posters  prepared by students in aH  Suilshihe -Coast .Schools. The  posters will move to Harvey's  Department store for April 2  to 7, the Trail Bay Mall, Sechelt from April 14 to 28 and  the Bank .of Montreal, Madeira Park, April 28 to May 12.  In all there were 2,030 posters  by students in the competition,  winners of which w^re announced last week.  carving  SPEED CUT TO 30 MPH.  The department of highways  has extended the 30 miles per  hour zone on North Road to  , the garbage dump road (Stewart Road). Signs were put up  Monday. Motorists are advised  to observe the speed limit for  this area.  v rEric Thomson, retired Hopkins Landing lawyer in correspondence with Lord Elphinstone following publication of  the Hans Peterson carving of  Elphinstone School coat of  arms, received^ from Lord El-  phistone the following letter:  From Lord Elphinstone,  Drumkilbo, Meigle, Perthshire.  Dear Mr. Thomson: I was  .delighted to get your letter  with the newspaper articles  and the excellent photograph  of the Elphinstone coat of  arms.  It looks to me to be a really  magnificent bit of work, and  I send my warm congratulations to the carver, and to the  boys who helped to assemble  it.  Reading the Coast News it  certainly seems that Elphinstone School is doing fine  things in all spheres. I hope  so much that one of these days  I shall be able to see the school  an_ the coat of arms installed,  and meanwhile I send my best  wishes for the school's welfare.  With many thanks, yours sincerely ��� Elphinstone.  Because of the need for use  of- the old Gibsons Elementary  school building for additional  Elphinstone students next  term, Supt. R. R. Hana recommended the building be held  in reserve. The board voted  that the school be used on a  temporary basis for Elphinstone classes during the coming school year until better arrangements can be made.  Wilson Creek Community association represented by Tim  Frizzell and Drew McKee, Davis Bay school principal, outlined a proposal.for a recreation site on part of the school  grounds. ' >  The area involved is 100 by  120 feet and would be black-  topped, fenced and lighted for  tennis, basketball, volleyball  and floor hockey, the project  completed by 1074. Mr. Frizzell  also explained that the Community association co-operates  now by allowing the use of its  hall twice a week for school  activities. The board approved going ahead with the venture providing there are no legal problems.  While the drainage problem  from the Madeira Park shopping centre had been resolved  in) connection with Madeira  Park school, the board learned  the problem of the ditch on  the east side of the school  would not be tackled by the  district engineer's department.  The board then decided it intended to fill in the ditch but  the hghways department would  have to provide a culvert as  the water that drained :nto the  ditch could not be termed a  school board problem.  As regards the application of  the Retarded Children's association for use of the old Gibsons  Elementary school the maintenance superintendct will be  asked to determine if the retarded school premises could  be expanded on its present  site.  Landce>st  to pass  lioiiie $ ?  Discussing land lot sizes in;  connection with a proposed sub  division by-law Clerk Neil Sutherland offered a remark  which fits neatly into the trend  of rising  land  prices,   at  last  week's meeting of Seehelt  council.   ��� . ��� ���::-%r/':,' ]���  Mayor Ben Lang and aldermen were discussing relative  size's of lots and their impact  on real estate and building  homes. Clerk Sutherland volunteered the statement that  "soon land will cost more than  the home to be built on,it."  Aid Harold Nelson reported  a Sechelt Timber Days event  will be part of this year's celebration. There will be six competitions for local area loggers  with a nail driving competition  for the women. A fishing derby  will be included.  L. & H. Swanson Ltd. was  awarded the bid for this year's  maintenance of Sechelt streets  and drainage in some sections  of the municipality with the  , work under supervision of Aid-  Ted Osborne.  ���  Mrs. Joan Korgan was named returning officer for the  Recreation Centre vote. She  will appoint her own poll  clerks.  Aldermen now hayeo copies  ~ 61 ~a~tr_aes" license' bylaw for  study and possible action  at  the next meeting.  When handling the subdivision bylaw it was decided that  a tentative minimum size lot  be 7,500 square feet with a  minimum 60 foot frontage be  considered at the first April  meeting, Whether such a regulation will apply to subdivisions now being developed will  be up to legal advice.  A letter from Mrs. McCut-  cheon outlining the availability of guest homes in the area  was passed over to the secretary of the Senior Citizens  homes organization.

Praise for teachers!  One should be quite happy that school teachers are displaying interests which, while providing extra-curricular activities,  are also helping students to obtain an incentive towards better  learning.  Take for instance the school sports activities. These properly  handled, can go a long way to taking a student weak in school  effort and making him or her a person to be looked, up to. For  instance the greenhorn who has never had a chance on a ball  team, surprises himself if he swats the ball and makes his side  cheer. It can also happen in other sports for both girls and boys.  Take music, band music specifically, there is something outside of scholarly desire which makes the younger set take'on a  musical instrument to tootle-ootle and find out to their pleased  surprise they are making music.  There, is nothing like a school or unit of any kind that has a,  good esprit-de-corps and stands ready to protect that reputation  regardless of whether it is baseball, hockey, basketball or anything else.  Look at the intensity of spirit engendered by the senior Cougar basketball team which went all the way to the semi-finals.  The 1972-3 Cougar has set a standard, one that will be remembered by this year's students.  If there is any way the Coast News can help in this movement  towards extra-curricular activities in the schools, elementary as  well as senior, let us know but do not expect all things to be  photographed just because they happen.  The voice of White Rock  Under the heading Washing Our Feet in Bill 42 the editor of  the White Rock! Sun has this to say:  "Yes, the land act has been on everyones lips for a month. It  has been the subject Of teatime chatter by people who own no  more than a doormat caked in mud, and the daylong torment of  those who own what's left of farmland real estate.  "It has brought out the eloquence that hibernates in winter  toddies, and the full venom of political rhetoric usually reserved  for visiting mothers-in-law.  "But all this tumult and shouting was not wasted. At long  last came the necessary amendments from Messrs. Barrett arid  Stupich, and we turned our sights back to hockey once more.  "We sincerely hope the NDP has learned its lesson from this  unplanned catharsis^ one which infected everybody, including  those who've never seen a cow.  "The NDP has learned, we hope, that "public relations" are  not confined to nudist colonies or family funerals.  "Public relations means keeping tahjs on those who vote and  those who only threaten to, and selling them all on a better  mousetrap, first making sure it works.  "The public, Mr. Barrett must remember, is severely lacking  in faith ��� not only on Sunday, but all the way to the banjk.  "We were christened with'tl.o bottle of free enterprise, so it  will take time to get used to losing what we've assumed is our  right, the right to sell farmland to whomever we want for what  ever purposes.  "Therefore, Premier Nouveau, no more rash proposals sprung  on the unwashed, if you please. }  "Just bathe our feet first, and we'll do our kicking with fewer  snorts the next time around."  i  Quote of the week!  "1 am often asked whether I approve compulsory education,  and I usually reply that I do and that I wish we had it. We  only have compulsory attendance." ��� John Bremer, educationist  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  A 50 year CMHC $35,000  loan has been granted the  Sunshine Coast Senior Citizen  project at Sechelt.  Internal strife in the school  board office has resulted in  the resignation of the board  secretary   and   his   assistant.  Mr. A. Wagemaker was appointed administrator of St.  Mary's   Hospital  at   Sechelt.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons dress shops organize a fashion 'show to be held  at Elphinstone school in early  April.  A $27,000 sewage system is  proposed for the Sechelt Reserve with Ottawa providing  $17,000 and the band $10,000.  Council finally approve a bylaw covering electric signs on  buildings in the village.  15 YEARS AGO  Plans to beautify Sechelt's  waterfront include keeping  vehicular traffic from using it.  Gibsons Kinsriien club has  erected a grandstand at the  ball park for the benefit of  Little League ball teams.  Tony Gargrave MLA plead-  in the legislature for the government to drop the amusement tax.  20 YEARS AGO  The Social Credit Education  Financing Plan was defeated  in the legislature by a vote  with  a   narrow   margin.  With no work having been  done on the Port Mellon Highway for two months questions  are being asked why?  A   cottage   with   view   lots  one block from  the beach is  advertised to sell at $2,760.  A government  s a town  Don Lockstead, MLA  The Provincial government  has purchased the town , ot  Ocean   Falls   for   onev _rillion  dollars an d^ will reactivate the  newsprint mill as soon as possible.  I was notified by Bob Williams at 11:30 Friday, March  16 that negotiations were being  completed and I joined; the  government and compariy re-r  preventatives for the proceed-,  ings. The final agreement was  signed at 2 P.M. "::'���  Mr. Ted Vesak,, the riewr  manager of- the Ocean Falls  mill, and I immediately took  a plane to Ocean Falls, stopping at Vancouver to drop off  coihpany, officials. While iri  Vancouver, we contacted Ocean Falls to have a meeting arranged. /  When we arrived in Ocean '  Falls, we went straight to the  meeting, which was attended  by the entire population, ex-v;.  cept for a few people on es-;  sential jobs, and I rhade the  formal announcement.': . <  The announcement that Oce^  Your income tax  By the Institute of Chartered  Accoutants of B.C.  Laws governing the deductibility of entertainment expenses have remained, virtually unchanged in the new tax  legislation and the same gener  al rule of thumb still applies.  Entertainment expenses can  be deducted by a taxpayer  provided they are reasonable,,  incurred for the purpose of  earning income, and are not  personal or living expenses.  Thus the business lunch is  still a legitimate tax deductible, expense provided the cost  is neither excessive nor incurred for non-business purposes.  But there is a slight change  in the new act., Beginning in  1972, membership fees.T and  dues'will no longer be ifebnsfc^'''  ered tax deductible fcjr * th<>se*  clubs whose main purpose is  to provide dining, recreational  or sporting facilities.  ' While the Tax* Department  has riot actually listed the  names of the clubs which will  be affected, it is reasonable to  assume that membership fees  to such clubs as private clubs  or golf clubs will now be; non-  allowable expenses.  However, fees and dues paid  to such associations as the  Board of Trade and other non  profitable organizations wili  likely continue to be deductible.  While   the   new   legislation  means   that   membership   fees  and   dues  to  your  local   golf   \  club can no longer be consider-   \  ed   a   deductible   expense,   it   :  does not prevent you from en-  ���  tertaining a business client at  ;  such an establishment at reasonable expense and for busi- ���  ness purposes and then claiming tax deduction on those ex- ';.  penses. ,  ORNAMENTAL PLANTS  The ornamentals breeding  and research program at the  Agriculture Canada Research  Station, Morden, Man., is helping enhance the aesthetic qual  ity of Canadian living by de- ,  veloping hardier . flowers,  shrubs and trees for apartments, back yards and boulevards.  an Falls would not be allowed  to die was greeted by {cheers  all round. More than half the  people indicated {they {{washed  to stay, although-.^soinW; Had  ���gone too far in plans to leave.  Some of those-who have .already left have indicated they  wish to return.  We anticipate no serious  problems iri reviving the corri-  miunity, although there lare  many smaller items to take  care of. At this writing, I have  been very busy, arranging  with the Library Development  Dept. to stop the transfer of  books, which had been packed  and' ready for shipment, cancelling the transfer of hospital equipment from the Ocean  Falls hospital, arranging with  the Dept. of Education for  plans to continue schooling in  the area. Schools had been  slated to close this month.  One man expressed the feel  ing   of   the   meeting,   saying,  "We had nowhere to go, and  not much of a future, but now  we have a town and a job," and  We've got a new lease on life".  The purchase was quite a  bargain. It includes: All mill  facilities, hydroelectric dam  and generator, apartirients, dU  plexes, houses, a large hotel,  .office and shop buildings, and  comiriunity   recreation 'centre.  Public buildings saved were,  a new high school with double  ' gy mns, elementary school,  hospital, amphibious sea plane  base, court house, post office,  and. liquor store.  The reactivation of Ocean  Falls will be the first step in  revitalizing the economy of the  whole central coast, which has  been allowed to deteriorate in  the past.  I believe there is a bright  future for this strategically  important town.  Church  Services  N. Richard McKibbin  A PERSONAL INSURANCE SERVICE  NOW AT NEW LOCATION, MARINE DRIVE  GIBSONS, B.C.

Sunshine Coast Regional District  Water  1973 Water Billing  The Provincial Government have instructed the Regional  District that effective this year the "land charge" element  of the annual water bill may be included on the annual  Provincial Property Tax Bill. This will enable qualified,  property owners to apply the Home Owner's Grant to this  charge. s  These instructions were received at the time the water  bills were being processed, therefore the only action that  could be taken was the cancellation of the charge on the  bill with a brief note stating that the charge would be collected with the Provincial Taxes. Thus the property owners on the Regional District system will receive bills or  notices as follows:  1. If he is a 'user', a notice on the bill advising him  that the 'land charge' will be included on his tax  bill and the regular '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. If he is the owner of vacant land, a notice on the original bill advising him that the 'land charge' will be  included on his tax bill.  Charles F. Gooding,  Administrator.  Cons y tYiers*    0     _  news   and   views^  by "  Consumers' Association of Cancda  ,��.vv."/;.  J *?-*���-���  ,^JsU  Well-meaning friends, neighbours and relatives always  "know best" when the time  comes to shop for an awaited  baby. Rather than ruin your  budget, try and stick to a few  general principles.  Consumers' Association of  Canada suggests. you consider  second-hand items for your  . baby. These are often. a good  buy since babies ..<. frequently  outgrow their equipment before it' is worn out; for ex-  ariiple, check second-hand  cribs, baby carriages and strol  lers. -   ,.-.  The carriage should have a  good brake arid a genuine  spring suspension. The rails  of the crib should be close together to prevent the baby  sticking his head through. Rol  lers may make the crib easy  for you to move but they also  allow "the baby to move it by  bouncing. Carpet-padded coast  ers are a good substitute. The  side of the crib should have  child-proof hooks.  Never use loose plastic to  cover a mattress, as there is a  danger of smothering the baby.  Sheets are especially handy if  fitted. They can easily be made  from the good parts of worn  double bed sheets. Three or  four sheets are plenty. Pillow  cases make ���.. good bassinet  sheets.    Blankets    should    be  lieht- weight     and     machine-  washable.   Thermal   weave  is  probably     most     comfortable  and is also easy to wash and  dry. Hand-knitted shawls  are  soft,  easy  to  manipulate  and  can  be   made  from  synthetic  yarn for machine washability.  When   purchasing    clothing,  remember that sleepers - also  called   playsuits   or   coveralls-  are by  far the handiest garment you could have for a baby.    They    are    comfortable,  lightweight  and  cosy  without  being too warm and are very  easy to launder. Quality is important because they are used  constantly.   The fabric - should  be   very   thick   and  stretchy.  There should be no collar because babies have very short  necks and a collar is uncomfor  table.  Snaps should be closely spac  ed, especially in the - crotch  area, and extend all the way to  the ankles. They should have  a loose rather than a tight hold  and should be set into a special  band of twill rather than just  a fold of the material, as other  wise they tend to pull out.  Don't buy a lot of baby cosmetics. Powders may cake in  the folds of the skin, and talc-  based powders are dangerous  if breathed in by a baby. Try  corn starch - it's an excellent  substitute.   Vaseline will  pro  tect the skin from moisture as     Coast News, Mar. 28, 1973:     3  well  as  mineral   oil,  One last point, there are a  number of basic necessities  that you will find useful to assemble before the baby is born  3 to 4 dozen diapers; 4 to 6  sleepers; crib or other place  to sleep; mattress; 3 or.4 sheets  3 blankets; 2 to 6 quilted pads;  ten 8-ounce bottles; nipples;  bottle brush and a diaper pail.

A slow starting  engine, for instance, does not  necessarily call for a trip to  the repair garage.  If an engine balks, the BjC.  Automobile Association ��� has  this advice: Turn on the ignition switch, push down the  ' gas pedal all the way and'  hold it there for 30 or 40 seconds. Then start the car as  you would normally.  Conditions caused by leaner  air-fuel mixtures may result  in a new car surging slightly  as it cruises along, or> shuddering or creeping ahead when  it is stopped for a traffic  light.' ���    ���   '��� %  The two most important  facto.rs involved iri bolfli a  safe' and clean auto, BCAA  says, ae keeping it properly  maintained arid making certain heeded repairs are made.  Basic iriaintenance means  getting a tune-Up every 12,000  miles arid reading the owner's  manual to determine -what  needs to be maintained. A  simple tune-up not only reduces pollutants but improves    engine    performance.  The quest for cleaner air  is expensive: Tune-ups cost  money, new cars need more  fUel to feed the engine, and  pollution hardware may cost  Up to $300 per car by 1975.  Until the pollution prone  cori���mstion engine is replaced  with an alternate power  source, BCAA says all motorists must \learn what they can  to keep their cars from pollut  ing the; environment.

The young Gibsons couple  and their children recently returned to Canada on furlough  after a 3% year missionary tour  of Taiwan (Formosa).  After being welcomed by  Pastor Nancy Dykes, the Abrams talked about their new  life and work iri Taiwan. Language was the immediate obstacle. This was Mandarin  with, as Wayne wryly expressed it, a Taiwanese twist. Their  first charge was a Sunday  School, in a little village. Then,  they travelled extensively  throughout the island, distributing literature and holding  . services in local churches. For  the past year they were in  charge of a Bible School in  Taichung,  central Taiwan.  Wayne was overseer for a  time of the.work among the  aboriginal    mountain    people.  ' "Working with the mountain  people has, been perhaps the  most satisfying, work of my  ministry," he said. "They have  ! so little, but they love the  Lord and serve Hun with all  their hearts."  jean expressed her thoughts  too. "In Canada everyone  knows the name of Jesus. It's  1 become almost a household  swear1 word. But, in Taiwan,  there are people who have never heard of Jesus. They are  amazed to .Hear that a mere  man can presume to come into  the presence of the wonderful  God of Heaven through the  name of Jesus."  When asked if they would  be returning to Taiwan again,  Wayne emphatically said "Yes!  We would have gone back the  day after we returned to Canada. We wanted to see our fam-,  ily and friends again, of course, v  but we know that God has  called us to Taiwan and we're  anxious to go back."  Later in the summer, the  Abrams will be returning to  Gibsons with their slides and  N further talks on Taiwan.  He isn't going to show up.  SI:all 1 call for a volunteer?  vote  to sell Lot 12  Following the Sunday morning service, ��� parishioners of St.  Bartholomew's adjourned to  the church hall, where a special meeting of the vestry was  convened to vote on, two motions to determine the now-  established legality for the sale  of the property Lot 12, Dougal  Rd.  The meeting was chaired by  the Vicar, Rev. David Brown,  assisted by Mrs. Nancy Kruse,  secretary and advised by Mr.  Ozzie Hincks, Vicar's warden  and Mr. Fred Allnutt, re-elected People's Warden.  Following full discussion it  was decided, as moved by Mr.  Allnutt, seconded by Mrs. Margaret Jones that the parish request the New Westminster  Synod to sell Lot 12 of the  Dougal estate for the best possible price and that the net  proceeds be deposited in the  Diocesan consolidated trust  fund in trust for the Parish of  St. Bartholomew's.

As a member of this degenerate group,  I cannot allow these remarks  to go unchallenged, hence this  letter.  Both writers take it for  granted that all senior citizens  are against the proposed Rec-r  reatiori Centre, and do not hesitate to give the impression  that the project is being blocked solely by this group. '  I wonder if before writing;  these letters did either of your  correspondents make a survey  of all the taxpayers in this  area in order to ascertain their  opinions. Were the only dissidents senior citizens? Surely,  prior to making such sweeping statements, the exact number for or against iri the over  65 and under 65 category  should have been recorded, and  on this basis, their conclusions  could have been reached.  In  the  second   letter,   pensioners are described as having  many sources of income. Perhaps  a few lucky  ones,  yes,  but certainly not the majority.  ". . .maybe   the  Canada   Pension Plan."  May I point out  that   this  is   a  comparatively  recent piece of legislation, as  it only became law in 1964 or  thereabouts, so those who benefit really receive very little.  "War   and   Overseas   Pensions" First it's the pensioner  who  comes  in  for  criticism;  now it's the aged veteran-pen-  soner. Yes, if under 65 there  are   such   pensions;   over   65.  these pensions have been radically reduced as the recipients  are no .longer wholly under the  Department  of  Veterans'   Affairs, but come under the jurisdiction, of the Department of  National Health arid Welfare,  Ottawa. I airi referring specify _  ically to burnt-out pensions-.-- -'���  "Company : R e't i r erne ft't ''  Schemes." In no way could be  considered as being handouts,  as over the years these persons have contributed towards  these plans, and one must remember,   that   in   those   days  wages  were  minimal,  resulting in a very small pension. Is  the pensioner now expected to  apologize for having paid into  Quebec students  for Elphinstone  By DEBORAH McNEVIN  Another, student exchange  program is being featured at  Elphinstone. Thirty students  from Quebec will arrive on the  Sunshine Coast Sat., May 19.  Of these students, 15 will  travel to Powell River. The  other 15 will billet with Elphinstone students until Sat.,  May 26.  - Mrs. B. Rankin arid hosting  students have several activities planned for the exchange  students. The visitors will attend regular classes with their  hosts at Elphinstone .  'Several discussion. groups  will be held during class time.  A trip to Vancouver is being  arranged for Thurs., May 24.  A hike up the Skookumchuk,  and a weiner roast, has also  been planned  The hosts of the exchange  students will be included in  all activities. It should be an  interesting experience for all  those involved.  a retirement plan?  "Reduced fares for all travel  including the Vancouver buses"  First of all, Gibsons pensioners  do not live in Vancouver, so  seldom derive any beriefit from  this reduction. Perhaps the  writer thinks they ferry to  Vancouver with the specific  purpose of obtaining reduced  fares.  Also, there is absolutely no  reduction on the Sechelt buses,  and it is rather strange that  none of Us who. are so skilled  in the art of panhandling, have  hot yet approached the bus  company for a reduction. Pensioners arise! You've nothing  to lose but a lowered fare.  ",. .all travel." I wish the  writer would disclose where  such privileges are available  to pensioners. I am sure that  we leeches would storm every  travel agency, if we thought  we could secure this additional  handout.  '^Haircuts"? Well, most of  us are bald or nearly so, even  the woriien have had to resort  to wigs, and some men too,  judging from the advertisements, therefore, even though  the barber or hairdresser does  offer a reduction,- who really  benefits?  As fOr "jaunting off to places  like Hawaii, Mexico and other  warm climates for vacations  and winter swimming^" in order to take these jaunts we  have had to save and. cut to  the bone. None of us travel on  an LIP grant, a Canada Council grant or even a-Youth Travel grant, but with money saved in small amounts from time  to time. True,'there are many  of us who jaunt, but the majority simply can't afford to. 1  have yet to go a-jaunting.  How many go for -winter  swimming? Many of us suffer  from arthritic and heart con  ditions, so probably the only  winter swimming most of us  get. is in a hospital therapy  pool  But the worst is yet to come!  We   are   actually   accused   of  asking local merchants to finance shopping trips to Vancouver.   Can  your   correspondent tell us when and where  such soliciting was done, and  which    merchants    were    approached?  Names, please. __1  bus   trips   to   Vancouver   and.  elsewhere were paid for by the  pensioners themselves, and at  no time was any member of  the community asked to contribute. By the way, there were  not   shopping   trips,   but   for  sightseeing only. I would suggest that S.  A. Macey check  his/her facts  and  sources  of  misinformation,   before   venting his/her spleen oh the senior citizen.  Reference  is  also   made   to  community   associations   canr  vassing   local   merchants   for  donations for parties. I wonder  if the writer is referring to the  Valeritirie diriner held on Feb.  14 under the auspices of the  Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal  Canadian Legion. First of all,  this was ill lieu of the annual  Christmas  get-together which  the auxiliary sponsors, but had  to postpone because the. Legion  building  was   hot  completed.  However, this too was not a  handout. The auxiliary quoted  a certain price; it was accepted   and   that   was   that.   We  should hardly be censured for  this, or should we?  i Oops, I almost forgot! We  held our 15th Birthday Party  last Monday arid we actually  had a cake, a birthday cake; a  Coast News, Mar. 28, 1973.     5  really scrumptious creation  with large gobs of fluffy icing,  disgustingly fattening, but nevertheless, it tasted like a little bit of heaven.-  However, just in case Macey  (is it a boy or a girl) might acr  cuse us of further panhandling  I am hastening to explain that  it cost the astronomical sum  of $7.50; no reduction was requested or received, and we  have no intention of passing  around our collective hats to  defray expenses.  Oh, yes, we are most grateful to the young people Vwho  initiated the carpet bowling  for us. We can say no nipre  than a sincere thank you, especially as it was done voluntarily. But it does take the  pleasure and joy out of participating, now that even this con--  cession has -beenthrown at us.  However, S. A. Macey neglected to mention that the pensioners provide their own refreshments, and believe it or riot,  Macey, they even drop a few  coins into the collection box to  help pay for the usev of the  building, Nuff said!    .  In closing the writer urges  us to get "unitivity" whatever  that means. The word does not  appear in my dictionary, but  again like myself, it's probably antediluvian. However, I  would urge Macey (is it animal or vegetable?) to get the  facts before using some 372  words (the first writer used  1,223) to disparage the senior  citizen by indulging, in false  generalizations and garbled  half-truths.  ���(Mrs.) J.

Diptheria is primarily a disease of children under 15 years  of age; This winter, there iijas  been an increase in the riurii-  ber of cases of diptheria and  the health department urges  parents to ensure that their  children have adequate imu-  nization. No 'cases have been  reported in the Sunshine Coast  areas.  Infants born of mothers who  are themselves immune usually have adequate protection  for 3 toe months. The Healths  branch has always recorniriend  ed that inoculation commence  at 3 months of age at Well  Baby Clinics so that adequate  protection is provided for a  child from the first year Of  life .  The routine procedure of the  health department is to reinforce the ir_muiiity on entry  to school, again in Grade 5,  arid filially in Grade 10. There  fore, a child who is at school  or has been through the school  system in p.C. or other provinces has adequate protection, provided the parents^consented  to  immunization.  The danger exists for those  children over 3 months of age  who have not been immunized  against diptheria, either  through ,parent, neglect or a  reluctance to have the child  immuriized. The number of  children who have riot been  immuriized for the above rea-  soris is estimated at 10 - 15%  of all BJC. youngsters.  Generally speaking, the community is well inxmuinized  through our continuous program. We urges- all parents  who have neglected to have  their children immunized to  contact the - local' health ;unit  office. Most adiiitSjWill have)  some degree of immunity. If  they are not certain of their  immune status ' they ^should  contact the health unit.  The problem in immunizing  adults against diptheria is that  they may have a severe reaction to the inoculation  Thereforej before inoculating  an adult we must carry out  sensitivity tests and thispaeans  more than one visit to the clinic.

The Registered Nurses' Association of British Columbia has  placed, advertisements in the  nationally distributed Canadian Nurse iriagazine's April issue and in an eastern daily  newspaper. The ads inform  nurses in other provinces of  the growing number of temporary and permanent general  staff positions for registered  nurses and graduates in B.C.  hospitals.  Hospitals reported 172 general staff position vacancies  in January, said Miss Frances  McDonald, assistant director  of RNABC personnel services.  Vacancies have been more difficult to fill because" of expanded hospital facilities, especially in the area of extended care. A total of 1,079 new  beds in acute and extended  care have been added iri B.C.  since 1971.  Scheduled refresher courses  this spring will enable nurses  who have been out of practice  for some time to return to nursing. Vancouver General Hospital will conduct a five-week  refresher course beginning  April 5. The B. C. Institute of  Technology is offering a refresher course from April 24  to June 15 for 15 nurses.  ^S&;'5'  Village of Gibsons  BY-LAW No. 239  A By-law to authorize a submission to the owner-electors within the boundaries of the Village of Gibsons on  the question of participation in the function of the Regional District  of  ''Construction,   Operation  and  Maintenance of a Recreation Centre including an ice arena".

March  14th,  1973  File: 0288628  Coast News ,Mar. 28, 1973.     7  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Q: What do the letters Q.C.  after  a  lawyer's name mean,  and what is the difference be-.  tween a barrister and,a solicitor? 1  A: Q.C. stands for Queen's  Council but it doesn't mean  much iri Canada except in B.C  In Britain, the title originally  meant that a lawyer was eminent enough to be retained by  the sovereign, (if the sovereign  was a king the initials K.C.  were used). The award of this  honor soon came to be given  to any eminent barrister whether he acted for the crown or  not.  English lawyers are divided  into two separate professions,  barristers and solicitors. Barristers appear in court. Solicitors cannot conduct court cases  but draw wills, deeds, mortgages, contracts, incorporate  companies, etc. A lawyer in  England cannot be both a barrister and a solicitor. A client  cannot consult a barrister directly but must do so through  a solicitor. '  In Canada, most lawyers  are both barristers and solicitors. The English system is by  far the best but as only about  one tenth of lawyers are barristers, the introduction of the  system here (as has been suggested) would work a consider  able hardship on clients in  small towns where a barrister  could not find enough work to  do.. One would have to be  brought in from the larger  cities where they would tend  to congregate. >���  To return to the honor Q.G.  This in Canada has degenera- .  ted into a piece of political  patronage, except in B.C.  where it is- reserved for a  small percentage of the profession. About one-half the  lawyers outside B.C. are Q.C.'s.  There are more Q.C.'s in the  city of Toronto than in all of  Britain.  This empty honor not only  does not indicate court room  ability but has even been  awarded to sheriffs and librari  ans who were also lawyers.  Unfortunately, even in B.C.,  there is some evidence of late  that what should be only an  honor and reward for ability  as a counsel is' becoming a reward for political services  rendered.

(By ED  THOMSON)  Of all things men are involved in, war must be the. most  devastating, but playing war  with miniature lead soldiers  and armament as pawns, indulges man's atavistic thrusts,  allowing historic battles on  land, sea or air to be fought  without spilling a single drop  of blood.  Warniongers-in-miniature un  leash their forces, complete in  almost every detail and in almost any period you designate  "Beats sticking bits of colored  paper into a collector's stamp  book all hollow!" declared  Roger Desrossier, Gibson's  leader of the lead: legions,  along with fellow table strategists, Adam McBiide and Larry GemmilL Roger who has  been an ardent wargames nut  for over 20 years.  Adam McBride, proud collector of more^than 250 pieces^  goes, in for tanks, half-tracks,  jeeps, command cars, motorized artillery and a beautiful replica of Big Bertha of World  War One, the long-barrelled  siege gun on railroad trucks,  which shelled Paris 48 miles  away!  Larry is the scholarly research type, the painstaking  logician, a stickler for dates,  data and detail down to the  last miniature man and piece  of equipment, no matter what  period. He is every bit a history buff r from earliest school  days, where he rebelled at the  dry-as-dust tables of the dates  of long; dead moriarchs and  equally forgotten battles at ari  early age, he started to find  out what :history was all about  on his own; According to him,  a background, knowledge of;  history is miperative if ypuv  aire going in seriously for war':  gamesmanship. ���";'"  Up at the Desrossier's home  on Union Ave. a full dress  council of war was being conducted recently by the Gibsons  militant triumverate Roger,;;  Adam and I__rry> in prepara-^  tiori for participation in the  first British Columbian convention of the miniature warmongers in Wise Hall, Vancouver March 31 to April 2nd.  The local group will invade  the proceedings with their  Napoleonic Naval presentation.  The Desrbssier home is in itself a formidable arsenal of  miniature warfare:. In the dining room, Adam was marshalling his 200 or so pieces of modern armor; while in the living room,  Desrossier set  out  the Battle of Waterloo  complete  with Napoleon and his  .   marshalls, Sault and Ney,- fac-  -   ing   the   armies   of   England,  Scotland    and    Austria    with  ��� battle flags and pennons flying led by Wellington, and  Blucher.  Larry was in the library  nook poring over Roger's collection of source books in regimental lore, leafing through  a beautifully illustrated edition of 'Tradition' the ultimate  reference magazine of all war-  gamers. Mrs. Desrossier, the  children and the two dogs try-/  ing to keep from underfoot of  the military manipulators.  Down in the basement, Roger has his research lab and  paint shop, rigged to refurbish  and paint to the last painstakingly verified detail, the consignment of lead troops which  hadjust arrived from' England.  Pesrossier a born innovator  thinks nothing of transferring  weapons or changing a Wellington from one horse to  another. He also specializes in  the reproduction,of regimental  colors; in accurate detail.  Speaking of activity among  the 300 Vancouver warmongers about 20 third and fourth  year U.B.C. students are,using  the computer to plot the  ���World War Two naval engagements in the Pacific, from  Pearl Harbour to VJ-Day,  every. ship was carefully plotted and their movements computerized.  It is the ambition of the local trio to hold a wargames  session at Gibsons in company  with a Vancouver contingent.  The problem will be to 'hire a  hall large enough to accommo  ;date the battle area and the  ,v audience at the same time.

Is  this a phrase commonly heard  in your household, when you  serve hamburger in one of a  dozen or more ways. Perhaps  it's time to consider a change  in your menu planning or  could it be your buying habits?  Knowing the cuts and how  you are going to prepare them  is of utmost importance in a  wise selection of the meat. It  is best to choose the cuts of  meat by taking into account  the number of servings you  will get as well as the price  per pound. For example, you  ��� should get approximately  three to four servings from a  pound of boneless .meat and  about two to three servings  from a. pound of meat with  bone. If a cut has a large a-  mount of fat and bone it can  cost more than a boneless one.  Although you may be getting  more pounds for your dollar  you are getting more waste  as well.  The so-called cheaper meats  such as hamburger and. sausage may not be as good a buy  as the price would iridicate.  When you consider the airiourit  of fat.lost in cooking, other  cuts may offer riiore meat for  your money. Minced beef or  hamburger, according to Food-  and Drug regulations; must  not contain more than 15. per  cent of this fat. You will there  fore get less waste with the  leani minced, beef.;- ���       ;  Price is nG indication of food  value. The less expensive cuts  offer as much nourishment as  those that cost more. Slow  cooking Jn, a small amount., of  liquid tenderizes thiei le���S expensive cuts of meat. Cooked  properly, a pot roast can be as  tender and. tasty as a rib roast  and a braised round steak as  tender as a broiled sirloin.  Look for weekly specials on  meat. Prices vary great_|y  throughout the year, mainly  because of supply and seasonal demands. You may find  that the prices of steaks and  hamburger are higher during,  the barbecue season due to in  creased consumer demand-  In the fall or winter months  stores may offer roasts at  special prices to attract customers. If you are a wise  shopper you will take advantage of these specials and if  you (have a freezer you can  save more by stocking up.

(By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Recent queries indicate some  confusion as to where our law  comes from. It is not all contained in the statute books.  You can't open a book and  find it all set out in a neat organized fashion. Our law, in  general, comes from three  sources: customs of the trade,  statutes,   and cases.  Customs of the trade: much  of our commercial law original  ly grew simply out of the custom of merchants. The vast  body of law dealing with promissory notes and bills Of exchange, including cheques, is  an example. A judge at a trial  will hear evidence of an expert as to what the custom is  in any particular trade. An expert is simply a person engaged in that trade arid who is  conversant  with  its  customs.  A statute or act is a law passed by either the federal or  the provincial legislature, as  the case may be. The law deal  ing with promissory notes and  bills of" exchange has been  codified or rendered into statutory form - now called the  bills of exchange act.  Case law, sometimes called  judge-made law, accounts for  the bulk of our law. Most decisions of our courts that deal  with some new point are recorded, in lengthy encyclopedias. These may be referred  to, in endeavoring to determine just what the law is with  regard to any particular set of  circumstances. The facts in  any two cases are never exactly the same but finding a  similar case provides a useful  guide.  The courts may however,  riot decide the case in question  the same way that a similar  case was decided in the past.  To know whether this will be  done,  one  has  to   apply   the  Grant terms  (Premier David Barrett has  announced the Home-owner  Grant Act regulations have  been amended to make a marriedcouple eligible for the $50  E>er year supplement for senior  citizens as soon as either person reaches the age of 65 years.  The p revious Home-owner  Grant Act stipulated that the  principal supporter of the  household be 65-years-old before a couple became eligible  for the $50 supplement to the  $185 per year home-owner  grant. The previous legislation prevented, a 65-year-old  woman and a 63-year-old man  from obtaining the $50 supplement for a jointly-owned  home.  The regulations as amended  enable a couple to obtain the  $50 supplement regardless of  which partner is the principal  breadwinner and regardless of  which partner reaches age 65  Premier Barrett also noted  that he has ..a Bill before the  legislature that would increase  the basic home-owner grant to  $200 from the present $185.  lor Real Estate on the  Sunshine Coast  K.

If  there is no precedent, the  courts will set one.  In general, the Supreme  court of Canada, binds itself.  Only an Act of Parliament  can change law made by a case  so decided. This is in sharp  contrast to the XLS. Supreme  court which can; change previous decisions at wilL This  has lead to widespread criticism of late, on the ground-  that new law is being made by  an appointed body rather than  congress, an" elected body.  Case law is sometimes called  the English common law system. It grew up, over the centuries, from the habits, customs and traditions of the peo  pie of England and has spread  over all the English speaking  world including all former  British Colonies. It is quite  different from the legal systems   of   European   countries  which rely largely on vast encyclopedias or codes of Statute  Law.  Our system is much more  complicated but provides' a  method of deciding each case  on its merits, without resort  to a firm statute rule. Compre  hensive as the European codes  are, it is impossible to make a  rule to cover every imaginable set of circumstances that  can arise. Our own federal  arid provincial statutes are interpreted by case law as individual cases come before the  courts for.., decision.

BUCKLEY  Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa  Many house plants have  been relegated to the basement  to make way for the Christmas tree. Before returning  them to their former place,  look at each carefully and decide how to make it retain or  regain its  healthful vigor.  Often, lack of plant vigor is  thought to be the result of  plant pests or diseases. while  it could be ho more than the  malfunction of the stomata in  the leaves of the plant.  The stomata are groups of  sausage-shaped cells that act  as pores. These contract and  expand like inflated balloons  and regulate the flow of water  vapor and 'gases to and from  the leaf. If these are riot functioning properly, some physiological disturbances might take  place that will endanger the  life of the leaf and cause it to  drop off or turn yelow.  With this in mind, one important point to consider is  wh ether these' cells have become clogged by dust and  grime. If this is possible, give  the plant a good spraying with  lukewarm water in the bathtub or kitchen sink.  The next consideration is  whether the plants are getting  leggy. In most cases, a. ruthless pruning will help plants  considerably. Cut them down  half way and allow new shoots  to develop hearer the base.  These will form a neater and  more   shapely  specimen.  The humidity in most homes  is very low during winter and  some method for increasing the}  moisture; content of the air is  required. Set the plants on  moist sahd or pebbles, perlite  or other material in a waterproof tray so that moisture  will evaporate into the air, or  place pans of water on or near  heat ducts. Home huniidifiers  are also available and necessary in many homes.  Now is also a good time to  repot your house plants. Many  should be going into a period  of dormancy at this time and  watering should be done less  frequently because the roots  are less, active.  To determine whether your  plants need repotting, remove  them from their pots by invert  .' ing and tapping the rims sharp  ly on the edge of a bench or  table. If there is a'.. large accumulation of roots around the  " earth ball, the plants need to  be repotted.  Repotting may be done in  two ways ��� by removing some  of the old soil and repotting  the plant in the same pot, or  by repotting the plant as it is  into a larger sized pot.  If the -container is large  enough for the plant and its  location, simply remove the  plant and knock off some of  the soil with a pointed stick.  Before repotting, clean the .old  pot thoroughly, then place a  piece of broken clay pot or-  stones over the drainage hole,  cover ��these with a half-inch  of coarse peat moss. Next put  some good soil in the bottom  and stand the plant ball back  in the pot. If the soil has been  shaken out well there should  \be room at the sides to push  |in some more. - ^  Take care when potting into  \ a larger pot thait the new one  | is not too big. The usual move  | is from  a  2.5" pot toa four  1 inch   one,   a  three-inch  to   a  : five-inch to seven-inch and, so  2 on. When potting, shake some  of the old soil from the base  of the plant and some from the  rim. IWork the soil well around  the root ball and firm it with  a stick. flPot firmly to avoid  leaving air spaces in the new  soil. ' >.'

The potting  soil should be moist but not  so moist as to form a mud ball  when pressed, in the hand.  If the plant'has/been repotted in the same pot, it should  be watered immediately., If it  has been potted into a larger  one, watering should be delayed for a day or so, to give the  new roots a chance to develop  in the new soil.

Is Ready To Supply Your Printing  GIBSONS  PHONE 886-2622 He followed his father's footsteps   Cancer notes  BY ED THOMSON  A recent routine visit of the  Coast Guard cutter Racer and  an air-sea rescue hovercraft  from Sea Island aroused the  never failing curiousity of any  sea-going activity in this  prairie-born landlubber. So  down to Gibsons Government  wharf, we took ourselves to  where the Racer was tied up.  Invited aboard by Gerald  Ruddick, mate, we were accorded a first-hand inspection  of this trim craft, a handy sea  going size, 130 ft. by 55 ft.  beam, of a 124 ton burthen,  she draws 5' forward' and 7'  aft. She is con_nissioned by  Dept. of Transport, and is  powered by four 600 h.p. dies-  el units, linked in tandem to  twin screws, giving her a capability of 10% knots, full out.  The Racer went into commission in 1966 along with her  two sister ships the Rider and  Ranger. Their base is False  Greek, Kitsilano.  They fly the pennant of the  Canadian Coast Guard Service and. are engaged in sea  patrol on the Canadian side of  the Gulf of Georgia, operating out of False Creek, Nanai-  mo and Sturgis Bay. The Racer captained by K. Clapp,  master and manned by a crew  of 12 carries two large-sized  inflated rubber utility boats,  each accommodating 6 passengers comifortahly and are  powered by a 20 and 40 h.p.  outboard. These do duty as  lifeboats or working in shoal  water. The quarters on board  the Rider are snug tout comfortable. She is equipped with  radar and the most sophisticated navigational aids.  We noticed a continuous  chatter from the short wave  ship-to-shore coinmunicator.  This we were told is maintained on around-the-clock  basis. As for her sea worthiness, Mate Ruddick maintains  the Rider performs well, even  in a 30 knot gale-force wind,  in the Strait of Georgia, but  takes on a bit of an uncomfortable roll in the open Pacific.  Giving assistance to ships in  distress   figures   high   in   her  sea-going duties. Last summer  the ancient tug Ivanhoe, now  tied up at winter moorage at  the Government  wharf, piled  herself   on  the   rocks   at   the  southern   entrance   to   Silver  Bay  on Gabriola Island.  The  Rider went to her aid and parted with four three-inch nylon   cables   without   budging  the  stranded  ship.   Finally  a  tug   was   called   to   inch   the  Ivanhoe  off the  rocky ledge.  The Canadian Coast Guard  Service    also    works   closely  with   their   U.S.   counterparts  and both services are quick to  co-operate in any marine emer  gencies , which might  arise in  adjoining   Canadian   or   UJS.  waters.   An   example   of   this  co-ordination     occurred     last  year when a Canadian cutter  entered the international waters of the Strait of Juan de  Fuca to give aid to an American ship involved in a collision.  Mate Ruddick pointed out  that Canadian Coast Guard  ships do not carry weapons,  whereas the American Coast  Guard, under the U.S. Dept. of  Defence, carries extensive arm  ament, which toy the way, is  under padlock and little, if  ever,   used.  At this point, the interview  was interrupted by the noisy  arrival of an air-and-sea rescue hovercraft, which landed  nearby and was immediately  in communication with the  Racer. This particular craft is  stationed at Sea Island air  base, manned by the two certi  fied officers and a rating. The  Hovercraft gets the - name  Charley ^Charley her radio  call letters. She is rated at  five knots an hour when at an  operational height of six feet  and is used extensively in rescue and removing emergency  cases from the beaches.  As a result of the recent  series of bomb scares at Vancouver International Airport,  this Hovercraft remains on con  stant stand-by at the Sea Is-  WP"*^  ��� /���-i,4-',-:\ :��� ?*_">;����� - ���'->'.'- '-.-''i <���,.���:���:"',��� -���-';��� ,5   .  ~-,;/' Vx.:~ Iv  Business Management Seminar  '--,.,<��� v',;. :-&& ;'-������*&��� vc/A ;,4;  with the co-operation of the  Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce  IF YOU ��� Own and operate  your own business  ��� Manage a business  ��� Expect to own and  operate a business  Yon are invited to attend a Small Business Seminar  at Lord Jim's Lodge-  Half moon Bay  on April 10th, 1973  9:00 a.m. - 4:30 pjn.

Questioned why he chose a  sea career, Gerald Ruddick  said he was following the foot  steps of his father, formerly a  Captain on the -Prince Rupert  and now a coastal pilot. This  urge t0 go to sea was on him  since sea cadet days. Then  followed sea time for his  mate's papers On a Norwegian  freighter.  He transferred to the Coast  Guard service, where he is  now working toward his master's ticket; Ruddick has al-  redy served two of the three  years required sea-time and  returns to school _i Vancouver and completion of his sea-'  time in expectation of /his  commission  next year.  The smoking of cigarettes  has caused, and is causing,  more human cancers than all  other cancer-causing agents together.  Its other ill effects on heart,  blood vessels, lungs and stomach are well known. Cigarette  smoking, therefore, is a major  health hazard and the illnesses  it causes can be prevented by-  stopping.  The opinion is growing that  cigarette smoking will die out  when it has become socially  unacceptable, just as using  snuff and chewing tobacco  have become so.  Occupational groups in our  society, to whom the rest of  the population tend to look for  leadership, have already begun to set an example on smoking.  A survey conducted by the  National Cancer Institute of  Canada has shown that, compared with the 50 percent of  the general population who  smoke, only 35.4 percent of  doctors, 28.7 percent of nurses  and 29.2 percent of teachers  have the habit.
