 , r  Projinaial Library,  victoria, B. c.  ���.  t  Published ax Gibson*. B.C.  Phone 836-2622  Volume 26  Number 27, July 4,  1973.  10c per copy  More  water  wanted  At  last   week's  meeting  of  the Regional District board a  petition from residents  along  Highway 101 from the village  to Pratt Road, including Pratt  Road, requested the  Regional  board do what it could to improve fire protection with an  adequate   water   supply.   The  letter was turned over to Gibsons  council  as  it  maintains'  the water supply for that area.  Those   signing   the   petition  were Wally Venechuk, Elsie E.  Earles, t D.  M.  Carruthers,  M.  Alvaro,    Phil    Raines    (Twin  Creek Lumber Co.), T. Connor  (Kenmac), L. Coates  (Peninsula Plumbing), Patricia Cramer,   John   Stanway   (Peninsula   Transport),   and   Dr.   L.  Pat.Perry (Coast Animal Clinic).;  -   v-'  Council discusses  alarm systems  Two types of fire alarm systems were discussed by Gibsons council? last week when  Aid.' Kurt Hoehne, chairman of  the fire committee ,presei\ted  v.,. jtwo^ad^ea?- epTr^^g^^,alaxxn  system.. 'V . '.  He" outlined the present system of seven phones,., one at  the fire hall, one with the  RCMP and five in firemen's  homes. Due to sickness, shift  work, arid being out of town,  the effectiveness of the seven  fire phones and the department is lessened, he said. Fourteen men have to be called by  phone under this system.  Aid. Hoehne desired an increase in the number, of phones .  and suggested a Motorola outright purchase to cost more  than $9,000. This would be a  despatching ' centre with four  man coverage on a 24 hour  basis. This Mayor Walter Peterson and aldermen argued  was too expensive to which  Aid: Hoehne agreed.  An alternative was to increase the existing seven  phones of the B.C. Tel system  to 24 on a five year contract  which would cost the village  $710 annually.  Aid. Hoehne also suggested  doubling the number of tied-  ^in phones which would entail  14 of the 22 men. This he figured would cost about $135  monthly.  In commenting on fire department expenses Mayor Pe- ~  terson maintained the fire  chief was pushing too hard.  Aid. Robinson agreed. The  clerk, (Dave Johnston, suggested that perhaps the fire department could find a way to  reduce other budget items to  "cover the cost of suggested  plans.  ->   o--  Fif-V1 starting, early Saturday7.  morning completely destroyed  Elphinstone Secondary School  centre block causing a loss es-,  timated at more than $1,500,-  000. The cost of replacement  will be in the vicinity of $3,-  000,000.  J. S. Metzler, secretary-treas  urer and Mrs. Agnes Labonte,  school board chairman, say the  loss is covered by insurance.  Two wings of the school on the  east and west sides were saved  from the ravages of the terrific blaze fanned, by a strong  west wind.  An investigation by-the provincial fire marshal's office  produced the information that  there were ho signs of arson  and. that the fire started in the  basement on the east side of  the main entrance. This section was a storage room used. -  in part as a classroom. Origin-;  of the fire is unknown according to the fire marshal's  report. The report also surmises that the fire had' been  burning about one hour before  it was noticed, and it built itself up to an explosive force.  Early iri the fire, Gibsons  firemen attempted to get water into the sprinkler system  over the gymnasium but owing  to lack of pressure the water  would not rise.  As a result of rocks in the  water supply the Roberts  Creek pumper was damaged. It  can be repaired locally but the  "Num1  imber 'three*i^ck**ot 'Cfi  * area department was damaged  so   badlly   it   w;as   shipped   to  Vancouver    Sunday    morning  and will be away one week.  According to available information the building was  vacated at the end1 of the janitorial working day. During the  summer vacation period, daytime occupancy by the janitor  staff is the rule.  The heat of the blaze  was  so  terrific that  firemen were  unable to get inside the building and luckily _wme records   ^gallery in the foyer of group  from    the    princ-pal's v office  ^pictures   of   graduations   past,  ^^ _ff__ents,* teachers " and"' ~Oh  %look-rs -with' assistance of -a  front end loader worked with  determination in spite of heat  and advancing flames to remove most of the equipment  from the science labs, the shops  and salvaging the band instruments, with Bob Rutter,  maintenance supervisor, helping.

The girl was struck by a^ear>  driyeri by Frank Beggs of  Powell River who police say  came around a road curve tod  ifast. RCMP report a charge  will be laid against Beggs.  Don Abrams and John, Atlee  who were breakfasting at Ben's  i>rive-Iri when 7 someone nq-  ticed smoke at the school door  area. Both ran over to investigate and heard crackling inside the building. Abrams  shouted over to Ben's place  andl the cook Ellen Vancise  grabbed the phone and raised  the alarm at 6:50 a.m.  Within minutes all Gibsons  area equipment was on the job  arid at the height of the fire,  Chief Dick Ranniger said 50  firemen including five women  fire-fighters from Roberts  Creek were on-the job. They  came from the Gibsons, Roberts Creek, Sechelt and Port  Mellon fire departments.  The building was fully insured and board members are  awaiting insurance company  representatives to assess the  fire loss which is expected to  be in the region of $1,500,000  more or less.  ���; Gibsons RCMP. aided by a  detachment from; Sechelt controlled traffic and worked' with  the.fire departments, whenever  such help was required.  ;Placedl>y a similar carving in  Jtime for the opening of the re-  'built school. v  Principal D. L. Montgomery  ���in the forefront of attempted  Salvaging efforts at the height  Tpf the fire worked along with  :_iremen to retrieve important  -student records.  7   Commenting   after   the   fire  ���had pretty well burned itself  7put,  Chief Ranniger said the  ���firemen were badly hampered  through insufficient water early in the fire due to lack of  pressure. He also said he found  the school's false ceilings a haz  ard plus the fact there did not  appear  to  be  any fire walls.  It appeared to him and other  firemen   that   the   fire   doors  were not in a closed position.  ^ The chief complained about  rocks   and   pebbles   blocking  hose nozzles. This was supported by Chief Glen. Krause  of  Roberts  Creek   who  said   his  men had to uncouple nozzles  to remove'rocks that blocked  nozzle mouths. Damage occurred to one of the Roberts Creek  trucks but it is expected it can  be repaired locally.  -* " "T6"~help out the- wateV Supply" trucks 'with tanks' made  continuous' journeys to Marine Drive at the former taxi  office location to fill from a  hydrant which supplied more  water without putting too  much strain on the hose lines  supplied from the mains on  the highway.  Chief Krause complimented  Chief Ranniger for the fine  job he did directing the operation, maintaining he did the  right things at the right time.  In view, of the fact the fire  departments had not combined  before Chief Krause found  working with the other departments a real experience.  He;, said the interchange of  equipment proved a big help.  Two end sections of the  building which suffered, serious smoke damage and the  upheaval of removing equipment contained at the west end,  the wood, metal and electrical  shops and at the east end four  science laboratories, the commercial class and the band  room.

Don't blame the firemen!  The tragic side of the Elphinstone school fire was  revealed when volunteer firemen, armed with hose, stood  at the door of the school waiting for water to spurt from  the nozzles but none came. They were victims of the  lack of municipal council action on demands for an improved hydrant system,-specifically at the school. Actually there was plenty of water.  Fire Chief Dick Ranniger has continually asked for  better hydrant service. So did Bill Scott, former fire  chief who retired three years ago.  At the council meeting of June 26, Aid. Kurt Hoehne,  chairman of council's fire committee, presented a report  dealing with the fire department during which he stated  the firemen, and he as chairman, felt a lack of interest  on the part of council.  To this the mayor replied the firemen were being  too pushy. He was supported by Aid. Winston Robinson,  acting mayor.  Last February a report was presented to council on  the effectiveness of fire hydrants and standpipes. Aid.  Hoehne and Aid. Robinson checked the system along  with firemen and found as follows:  A two inch standpipe in front of Fire Hall to combat a  fire in the Imperial Bulk Plant. Result: Insufficient water  to keep a pressure of 55 pounds of the discharge hose.  No. 2 hydrant at Elphinstone High School provided  two 2% /inch supply lines and the friction loss was responsible, for the drop in discharge pressure to 45 pounds.  A No. 1 hydrant would increase the supply line to 4.V&  inches and less friction would increase the effectiveness  of keeping the required, pressure for maximum protection. We are protecting a community value of approximately $1,600,000. Although general additions to our high  school have been added over the years, the fire protec- .  tion has not been increased to the extent necessary.  Corner Pratt Road, Highway' 101: 2^_ inch stand-  pipe out of a 6 inch mainline. Test showed insufficient  water supply for pump trucks. Tank trucks for this area  are a must for combating fire.  Abbs Road: 2% inch standpipes out of a 2 inch main,  water supply insufficient, fire protection very minimal.  ,        Wyngaert Road: Same condition as Abbs Road area.  1        Hydrant near pool hall: Water pressure and supply  sufficient and  acceptable,  for  maximum effectiveness.  Recommendation: A detailed study should be made  with the assistance of our Fire Department on the effectiveness of our fire protection concerning areas of priorities, water supply, equipment and cost.  For the immediate assistance to the Fire Department  a print of our water mains should be made available as  requested previously.  Fire Chief Dick Ranniger when'asked to present a  list of hydrant priorities produced the following on Feb.  18:  i        Elphinstone High School, replace with No. 1 hydrant.  Apartment Blocks on School Road: No. 2 hydrant.  Wyngaert Rd. near apartment blocks: No. 2 hydrant.  Imperial Marine Bulk Plant (Hendrickson's): No. 2  hydrant.  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre: No. 1 hydrant.  Highway 101 at Pine Rd.: No. 1 hydrant.  |        Highway 101 at Pratt Rd.: No. 1 hydrant.  Highway 101 between School Rd. and Wyngaert Rd.:  No. 2 hydrant.  Also, areas covered by standpipes of low flow pressure.  At the May 15 council meeting Aid. Hoehne also  noted the fire hydrants mentioned in the previous report needed prompt attention. ,  There might be a good reason for this lack of interest on part of council in its attitude towards the needs  of fire safety, but spending money on a fire department  then neglecting good water accessibility does not make  sense. There may be an explanation.  By  STEVEN LEE  ' Four months ago the northern most of the green South  Pacific isles rose from the sek  before by eyes. Since that first  day life has been good and  New Zealand and her people  have treated me well.  . My adventures in New Zealand began with my arrival in  the first week of February.  The national anniversary celebrations were an excellent beginning to New Zealand. The  navy and the governor-general,  Sir Denis Blundell played major roles in the festivities ���  my first indication of the importance of defence (ibothi military and. economic) in New-  Zealand; also my first observation of the importance of the  British tie between these far  flung islands and the centre of  the empire.  In the subsequent months  since the Waitangi celebrations  I have followed closely the activities of the governor-general  tried to evaluate his role in  New Zealand's life, and kept  close watch on the rapidly  changing relations between  this nation under its new Labor government and the Mother Country (for Britain has  virtually cast off this still dependent colonial left-over in  ordfer to gain entry into the  "New Europe.") Relations between Great Britain and New  Zealand will require careful  study, and are changing rapidly. A future column will be  devoted in total to these ties  and changes, it will suffice to  say at present, that the British  colonial history of this nation,  the Westminster system of government, and small details  such as the ever conspicuous  Union Jack and 'God Save the  Queen' at television sign-off  have helped make this Canadian far more at home here than  I have ever been whilst visit- ���  iriig cities in the United States.  The    Waitangi    celebrations  also gave me a taste of the7  relations between the two'  foundling races of modern New  Zealand. The native Maoris  and the white Europeans today ;  live in true harmony and. cooperation.  The Maoris  fought  for  and  Rent to Own  MOBILE HOMES  DOUBLE WIDES  Our new exclusive  purchalease may be the  answer to your housing  needs.

They preserved their language and culture, and through the enterprise of such men as Peter  Buck    (who    put   themselves  7 through university and law  school) gained full legal rights'  . and guaranteed seats in Parliament before the dawn of the  20th Century.  New Zealand prides itself on  its race relations and it has  much to be proud of. The Maori culture7���r from costume to;  song ��� adds an exciting dimension tor the nation, and  Waitangi was the celebration  of the marriage of that culture  with British Imperialism.  But Waitangi was more than  an initial glance at New Zealand history. The, celebrations  and my stay at Paihia in the  spectacular Bay of Island-  gave me my' first impressions  of New Zealand today: And re  markable     impressions     they  were.  There are the obvious physical impressions that one makes  of New Zealand at first glance.  I had moved from mid)-winter  (remember January) to midsummer, one of the hottest and  driest in the nation's history  ������ in one easy sweep across the  Pacific. Not only is the climate of Auckland and Northland subtropical and thus .very  different from anywhere in  Canada ��� but the very seasons are reversed.. My first  days in New Zealand were hot  ones���; and very dry.'  And the land itself is very  different than any I have  known. Northland's topography  consists   of   low   rolling   hills  and a few scattered lumpy  mountains, carpeted in thick  forests of leafy tree ferns and  giant kauri trees.  And everywhere there are  sheep and greeny green, paddocks. The; thing that impressed me first about the land was  its tidyness. Whether field or  forest, nothing was out of  place; the mountains never too  high, the valleys never too  wide ��� it was neat, green and  spectacular ��� not in the grandiose way of the Rockies or  the sweeping Prairies ��� but in  its own perfectness.  The land has been tamed  but not spoiled; the sky is  blue, the beaches; sparkling  white and untouched, and cows  and sheep graze undisturbed by  encroaching urban sprawl or  ugly freeways.  The land itself was the first  thing that impressed me in  this South Pacific Nation.  N. Richard McKibbin  A PERSONAL, INSU11ANCE J5ERVICE  NOW AT NEW LOCATION, MARINE DRIVE  GIBSONS, B.C.

If it is, you can be sure  that it's not important, but it  might be wise to get some  "expert" advice.  TAURUS - April 21 to May 21  You are slowly entering a period of a "new life." This might  seem harsh at first, but in the  long run it will enable you to  achieve all the things you have  always wanted.  GEMINI - May. 22 to June 21  This should work out to be a  very good' week for Gremini  especially in social affairs.  Short journeys are favored,  and there will be many friends  around you to help you enjoy  yourself.  CANCER - June 22 to July 22  A "new start" is life is most  definitely indicated. A heavy  load will undoubtedly be lifted  highlighted.  LEO - July 23 to August 23  If you don't "buck the tide"  in human relationships, you  should . do very well indeed  this week. By flaring up at  some trivial incident you could  spoil all the good that is coming to you.  VIRGO - Aug. 24 to Sept. 22  Look   beyond   the   work   that  you are now engaged in. A lot  of creative  ability   is  waiting  to   be   "opened-up"   Domestic  affairs    are    most    important  right now. Be kind, and it will  benefit you greatly,  LIBRA -  Sept. 23 to  Oct.  23  The doors of opportunity are  opening   in   your   favor.; This  will  be  a  long  slow  process,  but it's1 coming. No "overnight  miracles"    will    change    this.  You may find something that  you never dreamed possible.  SCORPIO - Oct. 24 to Nov. 22  Someone "behind the scenes"  is probably going "all-out" for  your   benefit.   Profit  by   this  knowledge, and bide your time  Dont  try  to  push things too  fast or you  may end up by  losing.  SAGITTARIUS Nov. 23 Dec. 21  Family matters are most important at this time, and can  do much to help you. While  "luck" may not seem to be  off your  shoulders.  Romance  and   social   life   are   strongly  with you, you can be sure that  "puiblic   relations"    are   very  much so.  CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 20  Take some time out to evaluate just what exactly your ambitions, in life really are. You'll  gain much from this self-evaluation, and you may come up  with an entirely new concept  of life.  AQUARIUS - Jan. 21 -Feb. 18  "Study" at the present time is  most favored for Aquarius.

Hoehne  wanted to know if anything  could be done about curbing  the number of hives. He was  informed by Mayor Peterson  that as Mr. Warren had been  tending bees before the area  was zoned he was in the nonconforming bracket as regards  zoning and was entitled to continue, therefore nothing can  be done about Mr. Warren's  bees.

The typhoon  cut a swath through the park  destroying more than 13,000  hemlocks and also crashing  mature trees down on to the  first generation of new trees  planted by the foresters in the  1930s.

Editor: The proposed ferry  terminal at the south end1 of  Gabriola Island will require  an entire 27 acre island to be  sacrificed for a terminal and  parking lot and much of the  best farm and grazing land on  the island will be covered in  asphalt for a freeway across  the island.  . Development of this kind on  the island will result in the  loss  of   a 7 rural  way  of  life  which many people seek  for  permanent homes or for holiday recreation ��� another refuge from the pressures of city  living will be lost for all time  as land development follows in  the wake of creating another  Vancouver/Nanaimo      suburb.  The ensuing rush for property  within commuting distance of  the cities could eventually lead  to the destruction of a chain  of closely linked Gulf Islands.  At best, thiis solution to automobile traffic pressure will be '  good  for   only   a  few  years.  Then what??  Progress is no longer economic growth in terms of industrial development and commercial gain. Neither is it continual catering to a self-indulgent society at the expense of  the environment -��� a philoso- ���  phy which, when carried to its  logical conclusion, is self-destructive.  Real progress is public  awareness of the destructive  forces of a materialistic society and the planned development of our environment to  rectify damage already done  and to save agricultural, rec- <���.���  reational and wilderness areas  for   essential   human   contact  with nature, bur children need,  room to grow ��� let's leave  them some.  --ELMA GAVIN,  Public Relations Officer,  Gulf Islands Committee, 7  Gabriola Island.

(By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Numerous husbands have  written in wanting to know if  they can prevent their wives  running up bills in the husband's name, by advertising in  a  local  newspaper.  In theory the desired end  could be accomplished in th4s  manner but certain practical  difficulties arise. It would be  necessary to prove that the  store received1 such a notice.  In a large city, it would be  impractical to give every store  a notice cutting off a wife's  credit. This could be done by  advertising in a circular subscribed to by most retailers  and published by a credit investigating company, but again  the problem of proof arises.  It is a husband's responsibility to support his wife for  the necessities of life. This  means a reasonable quantity  of food, clothing, shelter, etc.  according to his standard of  living. She may pledge his credit for necessities which fail  within the domestic department usually confided to the  care and management of the  wife.  A tradesman could not generally sue a husband for lux-  . uries or extravagant items  bought by the wife. The tradesman would be left with the  unsatisfactory remedy of suing the wife only. The husband  escapes liability also if he can  prove that his wife was already supplied with necessities or with an allowance to  purchase them or that he expressly forbad her to pledge  his credit. These principles of  law apply also to the relationship of a man and woman living together though unmarried!:  Each case is, however, decided on its merits and a lawyer should be consulted for  specific problems.  Recreational  grants outlined  Guidelines for processing applications for grants under the  Community Recreational Facilities Fund Act and the naming of an advisory committee  to review the applications are  announced by the Hon. Jack  Radford, minister of recreation  and conservation.  Purpose of the act^ passed  at the spring session of the  legislature, is to establish a  fund, set at $10 million in the  current fiscal year, to allow  grants, not exceeding one-third  of a million dollars each, of  one-third of the cost of community recreational facilities  sponsored by a municipality or  a non-profit cultural, ethnic or  religious  group.  The nine-point guidelines  put an emphasis on local participation in planning, administration and use of recreational facilities receiving assistance under the act.  . Mr. Radford said there  would be four deadlines each  year for applications ��� on the  first days of October, January,  April and July. Announcement  of grant requests will be made  one month after each deadline,  he said. Announcements of the  first grants will be made August 1.  Application forms and information can be obtained, by  ��� writing ��� to: Community Recreational Facilities Fund, Department of Recreation and[Conservation, Parliament Buildings  Victoria. e��_k**_umra._iaw_��!<.iia��tw_t9M**���_v._--<  lO   Coast News, July 4, 1973.

Also a very special THANKS to all our volunteer firemen from  Port Mellon, Gibsons, Roberts Creek and Sechelt.  1^  From Gibsons Mayor & Aldermfh  for all those who worked so hard and were so wonderful in helping us  save what we could of our Secondary School and the surrounding buildings. This was indeed a disaster and a blow to the whole community.  There was certainly no lack of did from all the surrounding fire departments and we wholeheartedly thank them and all those wha participated.  Sechelt Village has offered any aid thai they can give and Gibsons  offers the use of our former village office for temporary quarters or��� aid  in whatever other manner we can give.  I know it will be a hardship this winter for parents and students but  I feel sure with us all working together that we can come up with something, whether it be swing shift, portable units or whatever may be necessary.  The first thing I think we must do is to order new desks for the students so that we will have seats for them this fall. I am sure, we will find  some place to put them. ._>.'���  l
