Church  OLAUSSEN DELATED  Harry Olaussen, M.P., who  expected to be in the Sunshine  .Coast area early in August has  \) announced that owing to pres-  [; sures in the house of commons  it is not likely he will be in  this area at that time.  Roberts   Creek   Community  association .members  are  be-  coming frustrated with condi-  tions surrounding activities of  individuals associated with events connected' with the.general store on Hall, road at the  junction with Lower Road. The  association states that if the  situation   remains   unchecked,  . "we , are - afraid  that  nothing  will* stop' some' .f^fhfe people  taking 'things into their own  hands and taking reprisals oil  their own account."  This came- out at the "July  meeting of the Regional District board last Thursday when  the board after discussion decided on obtaining a bylaw  which would enable them to  take necessary action. The  present bylaw does not affect  aggregations of less than 1,000  persons.  The situation in lower Roberts Creek has been steaming  for some months. The group of  people involved in the general  store have also strived to have  a hand in the control of -the  Roberts     Creek     Community  Hall. Members of the association are dead against allowing  any control of the hall to pass  out of their hands.  Events which have in the past  taken place at the hall involving outsiders of the area have  caused the RCMP to intervene  on " occasions.  Apparently the  aggregation's    pipelines ���' were  working because visitors from  California N and   places   closer,  flocked  to   the   area  for  the -  July 1 weekend.  A letter to the Regional District board, signed by Florence  McSavaney, secretary, details  the complaint of Roberts Creek  people and reads as follows:  "I am sure you are aware  of the events which occurred  over the weekend of July 1 at  Roberts Creek. A special meeting of the: Community Association was called for July 11 at  which these events were discussed at some length and people were asked to freely express their views on any aspect of said events.  "We have set up a committee  who are to 7 meet with the  RCMP to discuss this matter  and a copy of this letter is being sent to the medical health  officer at Powell River and  also a7copyto Mr. Don Lockstead, MLA. -  "In  about  view of the fact that  500 people congregated  at the Roberts Creek General  Store, we are asking the Medical Health Officer to look into  the sanitary conditions of the  building involved. We woujd  appreciate your interest in the  matter and,any help you canj  give in advising us as how best'-  to, proceed..: ��� v ,  ^mrtfom ^infgpiafcpn, we ^ ^��*ve  give the folknying facts:    t ,  "About 500 people attended  a dance at the Community Hall  on Saturday, June 30 at which  there was no order of any kind  and so many cars were parked  along the road that access to  the fire hall was "blocked.  'These people remained in  , the area for about three days  and following the dance congregated at the general store  at  the  bottom  of Hall  Road  where two big bonfires were  built in the middle of the yard;  people wandered at will over  private property and' paraded  in the nude back and forth to  the beach. Lacking any sanitary facilities people relieved  themselves along the road or  in people's yards.  "Two motorcycle gangs were  present who roared up and  down the road four abreast at  times and also ran across people's yards. This continued all  night long prohibiting any sort  of rest or relaxation for anyone living irr the area.  "There were many more occurrence, of a disgusting nature and on the Monday a girl  was killed in a car accident on  Hall Road  "Any" advice   or   assistance  you could give would be appreciated. The people residing  in the area are so tired of trying to put up with this sort  of thing that if it  continues  any longer unchecked, we are  afraid that nothing will stop  some   of   the   people   taking  things   into   their   own  hands  and taking   reprisal on  their  own account, which would be  unfortunate."  Immediate   adoption  of  the  plan to relocate the main high-  ; way from Langdale through to  ; Sechelt   is   requested   by   the  I Sunshine Coast Regional Dis-  _':trict board.  ,    This motion was passed' by  \board   members   at   its   July  ' meeting last Thursday. It also  : approved  the  technical plai>  ning committee's grid system  ^"for  the  Gib_ons^Sechelt  area  which was part of thie negotiations connected with the highway.  The board received the report of the technical planning  committee after it had been  circulated and studied by interested groups, ratepayer associations and individuals plus,  submissions from groups, ratepayer associations and area  advisory planning commissions.  - Following the passage of the  motion Director J. H. Tyner  of Pender Harbour moved that  extension of, the new highway  to Pender Harbour area be included.' To this the board  agreed."  The recommendations passed  by the board are subject to the  provision of road accesses' to  Gibsons being included in the  relocation program and- preservation of the existing water-  sned areas or the provision of  alternate sources of water supply should -such preservation  not befeasibie. /  In the % technical planning  coinmittee's report to the board  the following observations  were made:  A summary of written submissions  made   to  the  board  reveals : ���that  the  two ; village  municipalities and the Sechelt  Indian    Band    Council    have  agreed to the majo_ street network. Gibsons stressed the importance of protecting theJ Village's water systems ' and the  importance, of developing the  indicated   access   roads.    The  Indian Band Council indicated  it did not wish to commit itself to the middle corridor until a planning study for Indian Reserve No. 2 has been  completed.

Box 460, Gibsons, BC.  ighway draws closer  Now that the Regional District board has "confirmed  the position of anew highway from Langdale, one generally following the line of the B.C. Hydro right-of-way,  the issue should be regarded as settled.  The Regional District board's territory between Sechelt and Langdale contains a good five or six thousand  population and of that number less than 200 registered a  protest, preferring the middle concept using Read Road as  a basic through road, joining the present highway in vicinity of the Peninsula Hotel. ~  Their idea has merit on a short term basis. They are  setting the northern population boundary at Reed Road.  This sounds good but if we do not get the higher route  now it might take another 10 or more years to obtain it.  A good many of the public have a broader vision of  the future of the area between Langdale and Sechelt and  would prefer to see a Malahat drive line of communication rather than one at a lower level.  The grid system which the Regional District board  also approved will be quite capable as the need arises, of  locating necessary roads in the area between the waterfront and the Hydro line route.  At this point in time one should look well ahead on  the growth of the area. How about the present situation  at the top of Lockyer Road where there is quite a community growing. Some of them are miles from the waterfront. The distance from Reed Road to the Hydro line in  Gibsons area, specifically at Henry Road, is just half-a-  mile.  With residences now within a/half-mile of the power  line in Gibsons how long will it take for home-seekers  to find it necessary to go beyond the confines of the village of Gibsons.  However the influx of people seeking homesites will  not stop so we might as well buckle our belts and face the  facts of life, even though we may not like them.  m!  recurring  I?ros and cons for a secondary s school at Sechelt will  be in the news before too long and the letter in this issue  from Mayor Ben Lang is a good starter.  At present Sechelt and its population are in a field  of new thought, that of progress. For many years Sechelt's  council handled nickle and dime projects. Now there is  an overwhelming influx of subdivision talk involving  thousands and thousands of dollars. While it takes twb  or three years, possibly more, for visible evidence of this  subdivision situation to materialize, it is now a basis for  a new look at the old argument.  The decision for the school board is not an easy one.  It is quite clear trustees representing Sechelt have their  minds made up. They want a secondary school; One can  hardly blame them.  On the other hand the growth of the West Howe  Sound area from Port Mellon to the Girl Guide camp is  not going to lag. With the closing down of False Creek  area in Vancouver for industrial purposes and sites becoming scarcer in Vancouver and environs some will take  a look at the land from Langdale to Port Mellon, zoned  for industrial purposes.  The future contains expansion of differing types for  both areas. So, members of the school board, sharpen  your pencils.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE TEARS AGO  Roberts Creek Community  club turns to the Regional District board for help to obtain  a supply of water.  Gibsons water system evaluated by Martin Dayton was  estimated   at   $303,820.  10 YEARS AGO  After considerable research  work Gibsons council announces it has cleared the way to  make the former Gibson Memorial United Church area and  cemetery   h to  a  public  park.  Sechelt Inn was partially  destroyed by fire. There were  seven guests in the place at  the time.  15 YEARS AGO  Village Clerk Bob Burns  says the government has  forced store hours back to municipalities to make their own  decisions.  B.

Dry weather keeps Gibsons  firenien busy with four calls  within a few hours.  20 YEARS AGO  The problem of diverting  traffic ferry bound from the  school area was considered by  the school board.  The Palmer farm was offering pick yourself strawberries  raspberries   and   loganberries.  There are other drawbacks  to the physical UBC as well.  Buildings have been built in  a deliberate attempt to pro-  ject an image of cold, impersonal auth.ority. They lack design, character or any trace of  taste in aesthetic architecture.  The Student Union building, a  prime example, is called "The  Portress" and: its great ioom>  ing concrete bulk sits in command of the bleak and barren  open plaza and fields which ���  surround.it.  Crossing this vast; open featureless expanse in a driving  sleet must be similar to the  situation of the Mongols who,  after crossing the northern  plains and deserts, came face  . to face with the Great Wall of  China.  The University ad_nimstra-  tion, not to be outdone in poor >  taste by the student executive,  created the Cement Crab r���  the massive grey block ;whic!h  guardls the approaches to the  centre of the campus and presents a cold,; sombre, .authoritarian face outdoing even the  Student Union Building.  In true fascist style architecture students are forced to  climb  flight��   of  rough   grey  concrete stairs which echo in  the   unfurnished  and   austere  hallways to  reach the registrar _ or finance department's  offices. And last, but not least,  the most recent addition to the  face  of  UBC,   the   Buchanan  office tower. A poor 11 storey  replica of the Mac Bio .Btuld-  ing that serves as a physical  indication of the status of Arts  faculty    departments,    history  and  economics  ortjcupyirig the  top floors; Slavonic studies re-  mainirilg in  the Old building,  and other departments in Ibe-  tweeh according to status.   7  There are pleasant aspects  - of the physical campus ��� spe- ������  cifically the views from. Poin^.  Grey. However, during the  winter months of rairi, fog,  snow and sleet when scurrying  soaked students can often see  no farther than the brims of  their wind-ravaged umbrellas,  the view is of little consolation.  There are other things which  determine the attractivenees of  a university besides its setting  and layout. The physical environment drawbacks of UBC  could easily be overlooked if  there were outstanding social,*  cultural and educational aspects to the university. However, in my experience, this  was not the case.  . In the year 197-.-72 the '.cam-?  pus of 30,000 students com-;  pletely lacked any form of  community. Student government was a sham; campus activities and co-ordination of  student efforts was near to  non-existent. There was no  life, no enthusiasm, no spirit-  on   campus.   Student  adminis-/  For Real Estate on the  Sunshine Coast  KJ CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.;  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre!  Gibsons ��� 886-2481        j  trations rose and' fell, the  newspaper (and I_.se the term  loosely) floundered, and the  only symJbols of social/political involvement or activism  were an East European named  Fred Something-or-other Who  seemed to be in some sort of  deportation trouble and a serenading group of Hare Krish-  nas. ' .  For a university that had its  beginnings in The Great March  and for a year that was unfolds  ing phenomenal political and  social changes internationally,  across Canada, within B.C.,  and in Vancouver, the UBC of  1972 showed a very poor face  indeed. The lack of community  was disheartehihgahdthe chief  reason for my moving off campus after three months of residence living. Although residence living itself left much to  be desired and I would recommend any prospective student to thoroughly inspect the  facilities and eat a few 'meals'  before committing him or herself to a year of such accommodation).  Wlhen it comes down to hard,  core reasons, it could Ibe argued  that I was not at University  for a pleasant climate and surroundings, for a rewarding social and cultural life, or even  to    eat    properly.    Education,  whatever  the   definition/was  the reason for my being- where  ���I was. ;,.���  In many ways I received an  education; for, by the end of  the year, if nothing else, I had  scraped the shine off the niame  UBC and discovered the tarnished tin underneath.

COAST *EWS WANT ADS  DEADLINE. TUESDAY NOON  tember when, after making an  appointment the previous day  and waiting in a hall for half  an hour x was able to see the  official concerned for cancellation of my enrollment.  ,   {Students, who after all pay  the fees and provide the raison  d'etre of the university, continually   find   thefcnselvfjs   coin-  fronted with a faceless sea of  typists,  secretiaries,  receptionists, clerks and petty bureaucrats who, by and large, are  arrogant,   rude   and  overpaid.  The uhiyersity has become a  vast corporate  industry  with  an elaboratev hierarchy of executives and decision makers  and  their accompanying  bureaucrats. The students have become  the marketable corporate   product.   There   are   too  many office blocks, too riiany  typewriters,   too   many   filing  cabinets, to many secretaries to  the secretaries and too many  computer cards at UBC.  The  university has ceased to be a  place of human interaction and  has (become instead, to use an  old1 but appropriate cliche,  a  degree factory.  I learned things other than  the structure of the university  system and its failings. Practical facts on geography, - new  outlook   on   Canadian   history  and the beginnings of an understanding    of    international  politics  somehow found, their  way into my head. The 1st year  English course was > complete  farce  arid Anthropology-Sociology 100 involved sitting in a  lecture theatre with J.,200 other  students and watching films of  native African giraffe hunters  ��� the relevance of which was  never explained* nor the connection with other fragmented bits of the course (which  was thrown together as we  Went along) never revealed.  So, with little burning passion for the structure or content  of  the  lower  level  arts  courses;   -with   a   disenchantment at the state of community and student affairs; with a  frustration, weariness and abhorrence of the administrative  bureaucracy and with a sour  view of the climate and layout  of the campus I finished my  year in good academic standing, rolled up my sleeping bag  and headed for California for  some sunshine and a change of  scenery.  My decision not to go back  to UBC did not come immediately though. At first I considered going to summer school  each year to cut the total number  of  years   for   my  degree  down to three. I dropped this  idea in favor of a lucrative job,  which   were   scarce   in   June.  Then after working all summer I even went as far as enrolling again in September. But  several weeks of campus rain,  and   bureaucracy   and   a  few  other developments convinced  me once and for all that UBC  was not the place.  I was free now to draw up  some criteria as to what kind  of university would be desirable. Simon Fraser was always  a possibility but I wanted  somewhere with less rain, not  more. But where?  First priority was language.

Concern oyer the  Granthams-Soames Point watershed, drainage, and noise  was indicated. It was felt that  its close proximity to Marine  Drive in the Soames Point  area would reduce the amenities of Soames Point greatly.  Further, this link would encourage the use of Reed Road  and for this reason should not  be developed unless absolutely  necessary!.  The Hydro alignment was  favoured, by many submissions  and should, according to the  comments, be the first link to  be constructed. A suggestion  was made that careful study  ���be made of the exact alignment (upper or lower side of  transmission line) of the. Hydro route prior to construction.  This alignment was opposed  by several submissions..'''..It was  felt .that in the Roberts Creek  area the existing (highway  alignment should be improved  and used as the major route  between Sechelt and Gibsons.  This would leave the area  north of existing Highway 101  for rural development. Comments from the Area A advisory planning Commission indicated the Hydro alignment  should be contracted first "'"as  far as possible.  Some letters opposing the  total proposed network did so  on the premise that development should be limited and  that the growth be discouraged. It wtas felt that the. road  system would only encourage  the expansion of the urbanized  area into rural areas. A petition with 155 signatures was  submitted as part of a submission which opposed the sys  and came from D. J. Roy and  S. Hodgson. Other submissions  acme from''Village of Gibsons,..

Campsite plan  draws protest  Proposals for a KOA Campsite on land between the S-  turn and Seaview Cemetery  have drawn a protest from people residing in the surround-  area.  A petition signed by 15 people reports that "suddenly consideration is being given to a  large syndicate of outside interests, namely KOA. This puts  a highly conflicting policy system for location of commercial  enterprises in residential areas."  The petition suggests other  locations for the camp such as  in vicinity of the golf course,  Langdale valley and soriie present commercial area not overly settled with commercial projects.  Since this project first came  up some months ago, the board  has done nothing about It and \  based on comment at its last  meeting will await the next  move iby KOA directors.  1,355  EMPLOYEES  At December 31, 1972,-the  provincial department of education had 1,355 full-time permanent and temporary employees.

Pork - Supplies in both  Eastern and Western Canada  can be expected to average  close to year-earlier levels.  Beef - Slaughtering levels  are expected to average above  a year ago.  Eggs - Supplies will be plentiful.  Poultry! - Broiler and roaster  chickens will be plentiful.  Broiler turkeys will be in ample supply but heavy turkeys  may be in. short supply.  Fruit - The sweet cherry  crop this year in North America is one of the largest on re-"  cord and cherry supplies wiil  be plentiful. Apricc-ts, currants,  gooseberries, loganberries and  raspberries will be available  in adequate supply toward  month end-  Vegetables - July is the beginning of the suinmer vegetable supplies. This month  fresh vegetables will be seasonably plentiful on local markets. These include green  beans, beets, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, chicory, cucumbers, endive, escafole, lettuce,  parsley, peas, radishes, ��� and'  sweet corn in late July.  British Cblumbia estimates  its sweet cherry crop is 20  percent greater than average.  These cherries are expected to  be of good quallity. A record  crop in Washington and Ore  gon will result in even more  cherries oh our retail markets.  It means lots of sweet cherries at a reasonable price.

This by-law proposes'to limit, restrict, and bar what has  been until now, legitimate use  of firearms. The bill, which  was obviously written by people unfamiliar with firearms,  hunting; and federal and provincial regulations governing  such matters, is ill conceived,  impractical and oppressive.  That elected officials would  presume to write such a lull  without consulting knowledgeable people such as Game  branch officials, organized  shooters, hunters, etc., is disturbing indeed.  A large percentage of the  Regional board's directors and  their hirelings are not Canadian born and obviously do  not appreciate tbe fact that  shooting and hunting are part  of our national heritage. As  such these things should not be  lightly and unthinkingly legis-  ated without informed and  knowledgeable assistance.  No one more than the conscientious hunter and target  shooter deplores the behavior  of: the few illegal and unethical shooters. We have federal  and provincial laws now to  control these undesirables. We  need no further laws drawn  by ill informed groups.  The organized; hunters of  Gibsons several months ago requested the Regional Board to  ban the shooting of bears at  the local garbage dumps.- This  CANADA MANPOWER  CENTRE  Announces  resumption of itinerant service to the  Sechelt-Gibsons area  TPremises will be in the building  formerly  now  occ_-  of f ice  Heating,  on Cowrie Street,  pie_ by Coastline Plumbing  of Dr. F.

MOORCROFTu  *  ' ������ ���  Charles F. Gooding;  Secretary  Sunshine Coast Regional District:  I have only had a brief  chance to go over your draft  for firearms regulation by-law  No. 81. To me it does not make  very much sense, even though  I don't hunt or shoot Or own  any form of a gun.  In the first paragraph I fihd  no way that* a police officer or  a game warden could make  any use of their weapons and  still stay within the law; I also  note that where it claims "or  any other type of gun" you  would1 also be stopping a skin  diver from shooting a cod, as  he uses a spear gun. You may  even cause his death if he can't  shoot in self defence. Neither  do I see any Way that the Sechelt Rod' & Gun club, the  Gibsons Wildlife Association,  the Pender HarboUr Rod &  Gun club and the Squamish  Rod5 & Gun Club could carry  on their training program or  . conservation^ and outdoor recreation program sponsored by  the government.  In section A of part 1, what v  percentage  of  these   zones  is  habited?  Or are they just so  many blocks of land made into  a zone for future use?

Has any  thought gone into the policing  of such a by-law, or how it  could be carried out?  In dosing I hope a secondV  thought is given to the prapps-:  ed by-law No. 8.1, and that it  is dropped entirely.

He reacted to the lack of response to the board's efforts to  interest the public in responding to three questionnaires  covering ambulance services,  medical clinics and health care.  Where there has been a good  response government officials  are visiting areas interested in  the health department's activity   '- ...  Mr/ West maintained- the  board was .not a suitable organization to look after public  health welfare so he is now  working with a group of citizens interested in health and  hospitalization and is accepting them as an advisory. committee.  He commented on the fact  that not too long ago there  was a furore over ambulance  services and added that "unless we approach the government we will get nothing."  Director J; H. Tyner explaining why there was no reply  from his area, Pender Harbour,  said that the present negotiations with the health department were so far advanced  that the populace preferred to  stick with its own activity re-  ther than drop it and then have  to go back to the beginning  and have to start all over again  The board decided to send the  brief which had been prepared  by Mr. West to government  health officials. The board was  informed' that about 80 replies  to questionnaires had been returned.

Five year plan  for development  of wafer system  The Regional District board  engulfed with increasing demands for water service on  the Sunshine Coast has given  Dayton and Knight, professional engineers, the go ahead  sign for a five year development plan for the present water system. ,  It Was anticipated by the  board's water committee, head  ed by Chairman Lome Wover-  ton that the plain would take  between four to six months to  prepare and would not cost  more than $5,000.  At the last meeting of the  -water committee Mr. Dayton  referred to the original concept the 1968 report, prepared  7 by Dayton and Knight, which  had in the main been followed  Developments of the past few  years had hot. altered the overall plan and the basic recommendations of that report still  stood.  Mr.' Dayton recommended a  study with the object of providing the board with a development program for five or  ten years. He would require  information on future land use  populations, highway route,  present water use, financing  and rate structure.  The report would make recommendations on supply to  second zone, five or ten year  period of development, development of Chaster Road well,  location and construction of  new intake, possible Integra- ,  tion of Gibsons system;.  Mr. Dayton advised the  board that he still considered  that Chapman Creek should be  the main source of 'water supply to the whole developed  area including Pender Harbor  but he conceded that such a  supply could be augumented  by local supplies and such  sources as Lyons Lake in the  Pender Harbor area and Dakota Creek in the West Howe  Sound area.  Debate  on two seco  (By BEN LANG)  As Mayor arid with full endorsement of Sechelt's Village  Council I ask you to consider  very seriously a critical decision to be made shortly by  our school board ��� namely,  should the rebuilding of a secondary school be confined to  the Gibsons area, or should  the board7consider two secondary schools: one at Gibsons  and one in the Sechelt-Selma  Park area?  You and I as parents and  taxpayers must give some directives to the board on this  critical decision. The loss,. by  fire, of a great portion of Elphinstone High School was a  trage_y. Now we must direct  our attention to the important  alternatives open to us via bur  school board.  I therefore ask you to consider the" following points very  carefully:  1. That our school board  consider and thoroughly research ALL possible effects of  the secondary school, educational needs ,for the whole district before making any commitments. It is up to us to  provide these directives, and  they must be given very soon.  I do not attempt to submit  statistical d'ata, as these are  now under study by authoritative bodies.   ~  Consider the folowing:  1. The greater Sechelt area  population is increasing rapidly and will continue to do so.  2. Bussing students to and  from Gibsons is costly; many  thousands of dollars can be  saved by having a local secondary school.  3. After school sports activities would be possible because of no bus deadline.  4. The long day, 7 a.m. to  4:30 p.m., in many instances,  has proven to lower the level  of achievement  5. biter-school competitive  sports would greatly enhance  school spirit. .%.  6. ^Discipline would improve  because the teacher-pupil relationship is more personal in  a smaller school.  7.

The purpose for which the  disposition is required is for  moorage, floats, construction  of net sheds, and occasional  booming.  ���William Paul Malcolm.  Dated July 18, 1973.  (By LOUISE E. LANG)    '  For many varied; valid and  obvious reasons which have  been put forth by a concerned  public, I am in favor of two  high schools ���- one in Gibsons  and one in the Sechelt-Selma  Park area.  I realize that the main objection which will be raised is  that smaller, schools cannot offer the variety of courses which  a larger school could. With this  in mind I have the following  suggestion to make.  Since chemistry  labs,  commerce and shop areas were not  destroyed in the fire could the  .Gibsons school be used mainly  as a technical school and a Sechelt school be chiefy academic? Both schools could then be  enlarged as future needs arose.  With the ribbon-like development   along   the   Sunshine  Coast and the three-mile bus  limit, it will still be necessary  to transport many children, especially    from    the    Roberts  Creek area: The buses could  carry  to   Gibsons   the  pupils  who seek a technical program,  and on the return trip: carry  program. Since buses are paid  pupils who wish, an academic  by the mile, full use could be  made of them thus cutting the  cost- School buses now make  the return trips empty.  Also  because many of the Sechelt  area pupils could walk  to  a  local school, additional savings  in    transportation   would    be  gained.  Our last school referendum  sought to provide a sorely-  needed additional gymnasium  for Elphinstone High school.  With two schools.each district  could have a gym and both  conMnunities would benefit  from their use.  Both   Sechelt   and   Gibsons  areas are growing rapidly and  this seems the opportune time  to look7 to the future and begin a second high school for  the Sunshine Coast area.  I submit this letter as a concerned parent, teacher and taxpayer.  Place those beautiful pansies and forget-me-nots in  a pretty "Pinwheel' basket  from Miss Bee's, Sechelt.  I'll wait until it's de-frosted".

He is  now   19  but  has brought back the car. Can  I force him to live up to his.  contract?  A: No. Any person who has  not reached his 19th birthday  is, in law, known as an infant  or minor. Such persons are, together with lunatics and treaty  Indians, protected from the legal consequences of entering  into a contract or agreement.  Obviously, an adult could not_  be allowed to enforce an agree  ment that he persuaded a child  to enter into. The age line has  to be drawn somewhere and  the law draws it at 19.  Infants, however, who en-  , ter into contracts for the purchase of the necessities of life  can be obliged to pay for them.  Necessities includes: A reasonable quantity of food, cloth  ing, shelter, medical expenses,  legal advice, etc. Obviously,  the infant needs these things.  He must have them, so in order to protect the person supplying them, and in order that  dealers in such items will not  refuse to sell them, the law  states that the infant can be  forced to pay for them. The  infant, however, does not have  to pay the contract (or agreed)  price but only what goods and  services are worth, (The two  prices may, of course, be the  same thing).  An infant cannot be forced  to carry out the terms of an  agreement in which he agreed  to buy and pay for luxuries,  and this generally includes a  . car. . ���'���;���-��� ������ ���������  The parents of the infant  can be forced to pay for his  necessities if he is living at  home. Necessities means such  according to the parents. position in life and this differs  widely in individual cases.  In some cases, the infant  will be held to have confirmed  the contract if he makes payments after his 19th birthday.  Sometimes, the seller is entitled to a return of the articles  or the value received for them  if they have been sold. There  is also the problem of damaged or partly used goods which  the infant is returning.  Many firms continue to run  charge accounts for infants for  luxury items, fc_ ejxampjle,  teen-age girls clothing. They  do so at their peril.  Moral - don't enter into  agreements with infants.

Columbia strand-  New director  for Health Unit  Dr. Alistair Thores is now  director of the Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit in succession to  Dr. Don Gemmill wjio has  moved to Winnipeg. Dr. Thores  36 years old and_Scottish by  birth, has been in Canada for  almost, ten years and with the  B.C. Health Branch for oyer  four years, as assistant director  of the Central Vancouver Island Health unit and more recently, director of the Skeena  Health unit.  He is an advocate of the importance of preventive medicine both from a human and a  monetary point of view and  feels that more effort will  have to be devoted to this in  future.  He sees the great need as  being the development of great  er co-operation between government and the professions  and better communication between all agencies involved in  the health, education and welfare areas. He also feels that  the Health Department will  continue to play a vital part  in the problems of the environment.  Because of the many areas  of involvement by the Health  Unit,   he   believes   staff   and  funds available will never be  enough to do everything that  might be done and therefore  that there is a steadily increasing need f or developing priorities in the tasks undertaken.  He feels this will be one of his  key , responsibilities,  while  at  the same time  attempting to  increase the range and availability of the services to the  public.  Dr. Thores welcomes discussion with any group in the  community with constructive  suggestions to offer on health  care and notes with satisfaction the development of comprehensive health care committees in the communities of  the area.

Other  standpipes and hydrants in and around the village,  checked Monday night, were found t07.be nearly as bad.  Fire Chief Dick Ranniger said that in case of fires in  these areas, they would be totally dependent on the water supplies in the trucks.

Parliament Hill  Looking back over the past  eight months I can truly say  that I've been impressed by  the amount of work that has  .been accomplished by members of all parties.  Jit has been an enriching experience as a member of a  party that holds the so-called  balance of power. We have  been criticized by the official  opposition and! by individuals  as well as the media for our  decision to help make parliament respond to the needs of  the people and not to fall for  the no confidence game played by the official opposition.  We have shown that we are  not the "irresponsible reactionaries" that some people imagine the New Democrats to  be. We have shown that our  responsibility is to the average person of this country and  this is truly basic to our philosophy and a matter of princi-  plie to which; I subscribe.  How long the government  will survive is a Tmatter of  popular conjecture. :  I am only iriterested inthe  answers to the many questions  regarding our economy and  the future of this country.  As long as the government  is willing to provide the right  answers to many of these questions by dint of gentle persuasion then I am willing to go  >along with our present policy  of trying to make parliament  work.  During the debate on the  Customs Tariff bill in the  house of commons Mr* Olaussen told the house of the experience in the tariff field of  a sn_all manufacturer in his  constituency.  "In Lac LaHache we have a  small industry engaged in the  manufacture of saddle pads.  They cannot afford to bring  the raw material into this  country for manufacture into  Saddle pad. because of the  273. percent tariff under item  56805-1. To meet the competition of imported saddle pads  they have to have the fabric  cut into the shape of saddle  pads in the United States so  that it can be imported at a  BY HARRY  OLAUSSEN, MP.  20 percent tariff, under tariff;  item 61200-1. As a result jobs  have been lost to the United  States at the expense of a small  Canadian, community that is  hard pressed for jobs as it is.  "If the tariff on this particular item can be lowered considerably then this manufacturer of saddle pads can anticipate the needs of the domestic market and as a result plan  ahead and increase production,  thus creating more jobs and  contributing to the economy of  this country. Therefore, I urge  ,the government to look into  this particular situation and  agree to amendments that wili  reflect its interest in this and  other areas worthy of consi-  - deration."  Foreign owned companies  took about $500 million in dividends and profits but of the  country last year, the Commons was told recently. This  amounted to 7 percent ,of the  total after tax profits of all financial and non-financial Canadian compames7in 1972.,  lQ   Coast News, July 25, 197..  The information was contained in as written reply to a question by Mr: Olaussen, tabled in  the House on July 9, by Trade  Minister Alastaiy GiUespie.  The reply also said the government gave ^.1 million in^subsidies to fpreign-owned companies last year.

Well, the first step is for each of  us to begin to understand our fellow  Canadians. They may live a thousand  miles away. They make speak a different language. They may be Canadians,  not by birth but by choice. And the  more different they are, the more  understanding they need.  That's easy to say. But how do  we do it?  Well, if we want to keep our  country together, we have to understand that some Canadians need more,  help than others. That we cannot solve.  our problems unless we help a lot of  Canadians to catch up.  It's not easy to understand the  other fellow. Especially if sometimes it  seems as though he doesn't understand  you. Yet one thing is sure. There are a  lot more people who want to understand and want to keep Canada together than those who would tear it  apart. But it's going to take time and  we've got to start riow.
