Director Harry Almond (Rob  erts Creek) said he would be  reluctant to see the land lost  to recreation, proposals but if  the feasibility study supports  it, if it is the best site, it should  , be donated.  .     <���  As regards .the board's farm  .land preservation problem the  examination of the whole area  . was two thirds complete but it  will take another meeting to -  clean up remaining applications.

Copland for the benefit of council.)  Council to dump wharf?  Gibsons council based on  Tuesday night's discusion during council meeting would like  to get out from under its control of what is now Gibsons  Municipal Wharf.  Reason for wanting to seek  a change is that it is becoming an impossible situation and  as one alderman said, it's just  a headache.  The float situation drew  comment that nothing has been  done to increase accommodation for about 12 years and  wharf and float use has increased considerably, Aid. Kurt  Hoehne    said.    Aid.    Hoehne  heads the committee which has  the wharf area under its control.  Another angle concerned the  hiring of a wharfinger which  has presented difficulties owing to the low pay angle. r  As a result of fire department assistance in a fatal accident on North Road, council  agreed to spending $56 to double the use of their oxygen  equipment. The firemen were  reported as quite pleased with  their new ��� type power saw  which they used so effectively '  in removing victims from the  wrecked car.  More subdivisions appear  SPEED LIMIT CUT  . If s getting so there will be  fewer and shorter 50 mph  zones left on Sunshine Coast  Highways. Now the 30 mile  zone west of Pratt Road has  been .extended to the western  edge of the highways department yard.  torn  Subdivisions continue to appear on the Sunshine Coast.  This the Regional District  board learned from the report  of Gordon Dixon, works superintendent. Three subdivisions with a total of 134 lots  were considered -during the  month.  One is a 92 lot subdivision  for Sechelt, reported to be a  Sechelt OLands project, the  other is for a la lot subdivision in -'Roberts1 'Creek. Estimates were provided on a 22  lot subdivision in Davis Bay.  area and another for eight lots  in West Sechelt;  Discussion by board members revealed subdividers had  no complaints against Gordon  Dixon in, his handling of cost ,  estimates 7fbr the laytog of  water mains.'  Mr. iDixon. monthly report  told of the laying of 1200 six  inch and 200 ft. of four inch  main for 24 lots in Roberts  Creek and another one with  400 ft. of six inch main in West  Sechelt for four lots.  The estimate -which started  the discussion concerned a  $60,000 deposit from Sechelt  Lands for water main work on  its Sechelt subdivision.  Board members learned that  Mr. Dixon's estimates to sub-  dividers had been fair to both '  sides and that subdividers had!  little reason for complaints.  Mr. Gordon reported that  the 60,000 gallon tank for the  Nickerson road is in place.

The ambulance problem  With Ciinnirigham's Ambulance Service bereft of its  main driving force through sudden death, the Sunshine  7 Coast once again has an ambulance problem on its hands.  Unless   someone with   sufficient   experience   takes  over immediately, the Cunningham service will be at a  standstill. This is notigood.  The Cunningham's some years ago put considerable  money into, their project and to help out, Sechelt's council granted the serviceia yearly subsidy which was intended to cover the transportationofSechelt residents to  and from hospital. Last year the Regional board entered  the picture and as the result of Mayor Ben Lang's promptings did discuss the need but ieft the responsibility for  such service hanging fire as far as the hospital board was  concerned. v  With the provincial government now deciding to seek  an all-encompassing Health Security program under the  direction of Dr. H. G. Foulkes, the drive for information  from the Regional Hospital board under Director Frank  West produced a report, one section of which covered am-  'bulance services. Later a Regiohal Hospital District  Health Council was organized '.with practically every, type  of organization involved in health and social welfare included.. ' ' .  This council could tackle the, ainbulance problem  along with the Regional Hospital board and possibly get  action out of the provincial government. Such action will  -ventually come but-to have Ttoawait something through  the Foulkes" report would take a longer time.   -  Action is heeded now if the Cunningham service is to  continue. At1 the present time the villages but not the  Regional board obtain funds for ambulance service. Perhaps the government might- see its way clear to make  similar grants to Regional boards.. With an ambulance'  service receiving grants from all municipal authorities ont  theJSunshihe Coast it would make it easier-to have a good  well-established service.  On the other hand instead of a makeshift plan why  not set grounds for an officially organized service now.  The cheapest way to do it could be to have an ambulance  established at St. Mary's Hospital where it could be  staffed at low expense. Then with minor ambulance service, at Pender Harbour and Gibsons the area would he  reasonably well covered.  There are three leaders in this field now and they  are municipal men: Frank West of the Regional.Hospital  board, Mayor Ben Lang of Sechelt and Aid. Kurt Hoehne  of Gibsons. Get behind them and help produce something.  Fashions in words  An environmental news item.from the Canadian  Forestry Association of British Columbia says there are  fashions in words, and "ecology" is being bandied about  until people are growing sick of it before they know  what it means. Here's a set of definitions of environmental terms that will crop up frequently as the environment  becomes more of a popular issue.  ENVIRONMENT ��� The sum of all living and nonliving factors affecting organisms, including man.  ' ECOLOGY ��� The study of the relMiohships of living  things to their living and non-living environment.  ECOSYSTEM ��� A complex of plant, animals, other  organisms and their physical environment interrelated  in such a way that changes in one affect the bthe_*.:  Lately, mutant word-strains, with "eco" as prefix, are  emerging. Seen in print recently were eco-catastrophe,  eco-activist and eco-tactics. Can eco-mania be far behind?  .

Watershed proposals  A report of interest to those  interested in forestry and fisheries was recently presented  to the B.C. legislature by the  select standing committee on  forestry and fisheries in which  various recommendations Were  presented.  Don Lockstead, MLA for this  constituency, a member of this  committee travelled over a  considerable area of the province on committee. work.  The specific recommendations of the committee included items i of interest to this  area in view of the situation  connected with Chapman  Creek as an area water source..  These recommendations were  Presented by Chairman Robert  E. Skelly in this report to the  legislature:  " The committee felt that because of "the variability of con-^  { dition�� in .each watershed ii*"  would be impossible to. prescribe a green belt of specific  width that would apply  throughout the province. However, because of their value  for fish and wildiife, recreation  aesthetics, and other uses, the  banks of streams, including  those of intermittent, tributary  and headwater streams, should  be reserved from cutting until  all resource management agencies have been consulted and  an on-site assessment has been  made to determine  (iai)   the  importance   of   the  . stream and stream-bank area  for all resources;  (b) the width and type of  vegetation to be reserved from  development.  Marsh areas and the shorelines of lakes, and the ocean  should be  similarly reserved.  Clearcut openings should be  carefully laid out according to  the contours of the land to protect game trails and wildlife  populations, and in such a way  that they do not create the impression of large areas of devastation in the minds of people  using adjacent roadways, travelled waterways, communities,  or recreation areas. A landscape architect should be hired  on a consulting basis in each  Forest District to advise on the  location, shape, and alignment  of logged openings.  As roads are the main cause  of sedimentation in streams,  detailed specifications should  be formulated far the construe  tion/ and maintenance of all  roads, branch lines, landings,  and skidder trails, based on a  careful examination of slopes,  soil types, drainage, and geology of the area to be devel-.  oped. Roads should interfere as  little as possible with the natural drainage of-the area. Construction and maintenance of  roiads, ditches, and culverts  should be policed regularly by  the Forest Service. No cutting  permits should, be issued, unless roads are' contracted and  maintained to specifications.  Severe penalties should be levied for violations of jprescribed  road construction and maintenance specifications:  Strict guidelines should be  imposed upon the storage and  transport of logs in water. As  soon as is feasible the provincial government should require  that all log sorting take place  on land and that logs be transported by barge or ship. Where  a logging operation is only  temporary or where economy  demands, , water transport  should be permitted' provided  the logs are bundled, placed in  the water, and removed in a  careful manner, however, in  any decision to allow transport  ation of logs in water, the  needs . of other wlater users,  domestic supply, fisheries,, etc.  Should be given full consideration.

The out and the amount to  buy depend largely on the occasion and the budget. (Shoulder chops and picnic shoulders  are usually a better buy than  loin chops and roasts for family meals. When buying pork  cuts, compare prices on the  basis of cost per swerving rather than cost per pound.

Fifteen years ago, with his  great love for water, he moved his family to the Sechelt  Peninsula, settling in Halfmoon  Bay. Their place soon became  known as Cunningham's Hill.  They had a small two car repair garage with al six stool  cafe. Sometimes a day would  go by and a single cup of coffee only would be sold.  Two years later an accident  happened and a Gibsons man  was killed on the hill and Bob  became frustrated because it  took two hours to get help. He  then bought a 1955 Buick  straight 8 ambulance "in cace  it happened again and someone needed help." He and Joan  went to Vancouver and rode  with the Metropolitan Ambu  Entente Cordial reinforced  BY LESLIE DIXON  On Friday Sept. 28 seventeen students from Elphinstone Secondary flew with  their three chaperones, Mrs. B.  Rankin and Mr. & Mrs. H. Turner to Ottawa. There they  were met by the French-Canadian students (whom they had  hosted for a week last May.  They stayed in the sMaall town  of Fort Coulange albbut 100  miles from Hull and its surrounding area in Quebec for  the week. During it they visit  greater depth of feeling in  their friendship and that religion is a very strong force in  their daily living. They could  not believe that some of our  students had no religious affiliation or belief.  On the other hand, family  life- was very similar to ours.

Hopkins: Some hard work required tout a very attractive 5  room home can be the result:  All members of the group were  impressed by the warmth of  the people they stayed with  and their complete bilingual-  ism, from the age of two to 92.  ' The French Secondary school  which was host was quite modern and well- equipped1.  After an all-too-short week  they made a tearful parting  at Ottatwa Train Station. They  - travelled home on a GN coach  arriving Oct. 8, all having had  a marvelous time.  The group thanks all who  supported their raffles, bought  cordtwood from them, and supported their various other  fund-raising projects. It was  only with your help along  with both a federal and a provincial grant that this trip  was made possible.  The students who went on  the trip would like to thank  Mrs. Rankin and Mr. & Mrs.  Turner very much for contributing so much time and  effort to make this exchange  trip successful.  Added adult comments revealed   they  felt   there   is   a  lence in that it made/us realize that people are fundament-  aly the same whether, living  in B.C. or Quebec, whether  English   or   French-Canadian.  On the advantage side of  their three^year-old multi-  stream school they noted a  large cafeteria, a large gym  with divider, theatre type auditorium, small classes, clean  washrooms, a clock in every  room, an excellent Student's  Council; a larger variety of  courses and the bilingualism  of most of the staff and all the  students we met.  As disadvantages we noted  lack of colour and pictures in  the classrooms, no semester  system and less respect shown  to teachers. The school shops  were not as well equipped as-  ours except for an excellent  automotive shop.  t  SCHOOL REUNION  Duncan Elementry School  will observe its 60th-anniversary ori Dec. 7.

Three   yeairs    ago   he   ap-  . preached .Sechelt with the proposal that, for a flat fee  he  would supply -free ambulance  service to the area. They accepted,   however   it  ���was   discovered that the original $500'  per   year   asked   for   ,wasn't  enough to cover expenses and  the  village raised it to $600.  However, with,more people arriving and settling in the area  it was found that it was still  not enough, but this time his  request  for  more   funds was  . turned down. Not to be put  down he aid, "Well I'll take  that and maybe someday they  will realize the need for this  service and in the meantime  I'll subsidize it. I'll just have  to work a little harder.'  His latest venture was to get  free ambulance service Dor  the Sunshine Coast. Negotiations are under way. He purchased a new ambulance. He  was driving it home when his  heart stopped beating. His  whole life was helping others.  He often said "I can do anything, the impossible just takes  a little longer."

TW|poy, 28 meeting of'the  Regi-_M^ District board will  have to -decide on waterworks  improvements to maintain service during peak 1974 water  usage.  Last July, engineers Dayton  and Knight (were requested to  produce a five year system development plan, with the first  phase recommending 1974 improvements.  These concern the Roberts  Creek section of the system  and present three choices. One  would complete and connect  the Chaster road well at a cost  of $50,000. Another calls for an  $80,000 Roberts Creek reservoir and the third would para-  lell the Davis Bay bottleneck  with larger pipe and improve  booster  the    Browning   road  pump to cost $55,000.  The water committee headed by Chairman Lome Wolverton agrees that each alternative would be required eventually. However the committee  did not make a recommendation, leaving this up to the  November board meeting. This  must be done to allow inclusion in the 1974 waterworks  budget.  The Dayton and Knight report showed there were now  1,450 connections of which 665  were west of Selma Park and  785 in the eastern section.  Assuming three persons were  serviced by each water connection this meant 2,400 users  in Roberts Creek system and  2,000 to the west.  Power Squadron meets  is missing  The Sunshine Coast Power  Squadron was host for the Pacific Mainland district meeting  on Oct. 20 at Gibsons Cedars  Inn.  The afternoon session tackled squadron problems while  lady associates and guests were  entertained at tea by Mrs. R.  G. Jardine, Gower Point Rd.  The evening banquet was featured with dashes in the form  of boats on nautical tablecloths  Lt. Commander John Webb offered grace and Dave Richardson toasted the Queen. Squadron Commander Don Hadden  introduced the head table.  Commander G. Harris "flew  the flag" on behalf of power  squadrons and urged members  to spread the word of _>ower  squadron service.  A cruise planned for next  day in Howe Sound was called  off due to fog but some vessels  cruised to Hunechin Island  with visitors. These boats were  Werner Rkahters' Tejos, DJr.  Jim Hobson's Qyrano, Cliff  Salahub's Genie, Don Hadden's  Bunty, John Webb's Nor-Wester and Gordie Hall's Gay Nineties.  Perky, the nine-year-old  highly pedigreed terrier and  companion of Arthur Teasdale  is once again missing from the  home Of Arthur's sister, Mrs.  M/Waddirpn on Glassford road,  for the second time.  Just a year ago and shortly  after Teasdale and his dog  arrived from England to stay  with Mrs. Waldroh, Perky was  absent for 15 days. The owner  finally located the missing dog  marooned/high ph a iedge of  rock near Gospel Rock. This  time, in spite.of an intensified  search, ho trace of Perky has  been uncovered.  Wafer protection necessary  'Protecting a water system  is no sinecure and the report  to the Regional District board's  Octofber meeting hy Gordon  Dixon, superintendent proves  it. ' '  . For instance B.C. Hydro  broke a six inch main in Davis  Bay area during work they  were doing to facilitate a high-:  way widening project.  Potwer was off at Gower  Point causing a water outage  at Rosamund Road for a few  hours.   Chapman   Creek   also  gave trouble, being dirty dur-  ing rainy spells, causing discolored water, and constant  cleaning of the intake structures. Board members commented on logging operations  higher up on Chapman Creek  as some of the reason for dirty  ���water.  Then the superintendent's  report added that highways  department ditching in the  Davis Bay-Wilson Creek area  required] a great deal of surveillance to protect the water  mains and service-. ! 6   Coast News, Oct. 31^ 1973.  Chair ends  lengthy debate  on phone rates  Maintaining the Regional Dis  ��� trict board had not asserted itself on a Pender Harbour request for the board's support  to have tolls taken off Pender  Harbour, Trustee Rita. Relf,  (Halfmoon Bay) quizzed board  members as to what they in-r  tended to do.  The matter first reached the  board last February when the  request came as the, result of  Director J. H. Tyner of Pender  Harbour appealing for board  support to have the tolls removed.  The company reported only  29 percent of phone customers  made three or more calls per  month to Sechelt and there appeared to be even less interest  in the reverse direction.  To provide a non-toll service  an initial capital expenditure  estimated at $150,000 would be  necessary, the company said.  Further, the phone company  says the net loss of annual revenue from present charges  would mean an additional  charge of 75c on residential  phones and $2.90 for business  customers.

Dumping days  set for garbage  For those who want to dump  garbage at area dumps, specific days were set by the Regional District board at its October naeeting.  Diays set are: Gibsons on.  Mondays, Sechelt on Tuesdays,  Madeira Park on Wednesdays  ' and Pender Harbour Thursdays  This would allow the dump  maintenance man to be at each  dump oh respective days.  A trial will be made at Gibsons of installing two large  containers in a bay outside the  gate of Gibsons dump to allow  continuous controlled dumping  and if this works it could be  extended to other dumps.  Director H. A. Slade, chairman of the garbage committee  reported that provincial pollution control officials had set  the standard for local dumps.  Works Supt. Gordon Dixon reported that costs of fencing for  Gibsons and 'Secnelt dumps  would be more than offset by  the sale of timber cleared from  dump sites/Fencing at Gibsons  ahd Sechelt; would run about  $2;000, he reported.  ���Complaints about the condition of the steep hill leading  to the Sechelt dump resulted  in the garbage committee  maintaining that from an economic point of view paving this  road would be too Costly. However other1 possible solutions  are being considered.  U. S. S.R.

The Murrays are not strangers to the Sunshine Coast, having spent two idyllic years at  Egmont, where a battered old  red '52 Chey. panel truck, borrowed from Graeme's brother  provided rather precarious  transportation and shelter of  sorts.  - It was? with reluctance the  Murray�� returned to the humdrum existense of Richmond,  Where for the next two years  Graeme in his spare time and  with help of friends, built his -  heart's desire, the 40 ft. rakish,  ferro concrete hull of what is  to be, when completed, hopefully by next year, a trim cutter-rigged yacht to- take them  on Island-hopping expeditions  up and down the coast.  Needless to say, both jumped  at the chance to return to the  Sunshine Coast to become part  of the CBC TV film unit, operating out of Gibsons where  Graeme, a free lance artist became set designer for the7  Beachcombers.

WSllmott, who replaced Charles  Gooding, retired at the end.of  September.  Director Relf was at one  time stenographer for Mr.  Gooding. She maintained that  now empire building was going on abetted by "dirty trick  committee meetings."  Under discussion was the report of the service committee  which approved administrative  staff establishment and position classifications. The secretary ^treasurer in his report  said it was anticipated that  vacancies of the accountant-  assistant secretary - treasurer  and senior clerk-stenographer  would be filled in November.  Meanwhile the services of the  temporary clerk-typist and casual bookkeeper would be retained in an endeavor to handle the essential daily routine  administrative, tasks.  . What stirred Director Relf  into action was the proposed  appointment of an assistant to  the secretary-treasurer who  would take over some of his  responsibilities  while   at   the  TRY ON  YOUR NEXT  PAIR  OF SHOES  AT  WIGARD'S   \  885-9345        SECHELT  I  same time the acting secretary-  treasurer was getting more  money for doing only half the  work. Board members maintained he was receiving only  .' the , secretaryi-treasurer's salary. .  Chairman Lome Wolverton  brought the d_scusison to an  end by closing it off.  Trustee Relf also complained  of what she termed many discrepancies in the minutes of  the September meeting, some  concerning unfinished business  and.one other covering what  she termed the illegal position  of the report on proceedings  of the Court of Revision which  had been signed by the chairman of the court and the clerk.  She argued all members of  the court should have signed  it.  , The time of the meeting utilized by Director Relfs complaints took more than one  hour.

Time   was  when!  folks from Gambier and Keats,;;  - as well as the locals (and they  still do) made their way down*'  the winding  precipitous path  to   the   waters   edge   of   the  Strange" garden to buy armr  loads   of. garden  fresh  vegetables and never a lady customer leaves without a colorful:  bouquet of.fresh cut flowers;  Harold has had one preocW  cupation, down through the~  ' years, fishing, but since -his  wife Maud Alice's death in '48  he hasn't had quite the same  interest ^in chasing salmon  around the Bay.    -   , ,.'  With his steel-trap mind, and^  pafwky sense of humor, he recalls his arrival in Gibsons',  late ori a November evening in'  1903, on board.the-old Como3|  from Vancouver, her master.  Captain Barlett. -^  One. of the first to greet this  newcomer, late off the prairies, was Captain George Gibson, the founding father of this  area. This was to be the beginning of a lifelong friendship  .with the squire of Gibsons  Landing (a mighty fine man)  Harold recalls.  Incidently, Strange had  spent eight years in Manitoba  fresh  out   from  Birmingham.  England. He still remembers  with a-shiver,.the bone-chilling  20 below weather and waist-  ; high snowdrifts on the prairies  1 back East, from which he was  glad to escape to 'the more  temperate climate of B.C.  Arriving in (British Columbia  just after the turn" of the century - to  the  then raw overgrown but thriving lumbering  town and Pacific port of Van^  couver, his,first job was with  the horse-drawn delivery- department of the Hudsons Bay  Co. retail store, then located  on Granville St. across the way  from the present store. Harold  recalls    the    Bay's    delivery  horses,    at   that   time   were  boarded out at livery stables  all over town. The stable, boss,  a peppery dispositioned Englishman was noted for his standard    specific    for    collicky  horses. When such an emergency arose, Strange, was despatched   to   the   Bay _   wtell-  stocked liquor store;, located- on  the. corner of  (Granville  and  Georgia ���  that  was  before  Birks    acquired   the   present  property and placed the familiar, landmark clock out front  where it remains to this day.  The standing order at the  EDBC Beer, Wine and' Spirits  Emporium was two dozen  Guinness stout, which Strange  swung over his shoulder in a  canvas sack, then-back to the  stables where, as the story  goes, the ailing nag was dosed  with two bottles of the good  stuff, the remainder downed  by the stable hartds, the boss  receiving the lion's share!  It was during these years at  the Bay, iwhile playing pro soccer,   Harold   received   an   ear  The Open Bible Store  - Marine Drive,-Gibsons  Opens for Business Thursday, Nov. 1  Christian Books aod\ the~Holy Bible .for sale; ���*  and loan through the store library  Bon voyage dance held  '!��-��  Sechelt School District No. 46  Box 220, Gibsons, B.C.

After a three-year term with  Hudsons Bay Co. he transferred to the CJP.R. where he rose  to be yardmaster, retiring from  the railroad with 30 years service to his credit.  Harold likes to tell of the  infrequent visits of CER president David Beatty.  What a palaver when the  President's special arrived in  the yards. No eastern potentate  rated more ceremony and the  yards and yards of red carpet  treatment. Harold remembers  Beatty as a bluff, piercing-  eyed super-charged boss, who  pawky sence of humour, he re-  commahded the respect, fear  and loyalty of every last man  and woman in the system ��� a  human dynamo.  In 1910 Harold revisited his  native town of Birmingham  and returned to the coast with  his hride, _the former - Maude  Alice Walker of that city. Their  only child!, Kenneth, was born  in 1912 in Vancouver.

Editor: My letter to you is for  one reason only: the reporting  that the Village Council of  Gibsons was displeased with  the OAIPO because of the ringing of trees on the OAPO park.  May I express now that this  is not the case; it was a group  other than the OAPO who  were ringing the trees and our  council was unhappy with this  being carried! on. It came to  our attention by way of the  OAPO members and therefore,  as a council, we are working  with the OAPO organization  to have this stopped.  The point I am expressing;;  is that when we as a council  are misquoted, we must live  with the comments of the press  but when it affects a /group  who are working for the community, and may I add, at mo  cost to the municipality, we  must defend this group.  Praise is, well.due the OAPO  as there were inany organizations who approached council  for land and when they were  asked to consider this piece of  properly said no thanks as it  requires a lot of drainage and  other factors which are time-  consuming and requires a lot  of planning if the project is to  be a success.   .  I am personally pleased with  the group and want to give  them all the 'support I can in  sucn a worthwhile cause for  our village.

Having reported  the utterances in council without embellishment the Coast  News has nothing ,to retract.  Aid. Hoehne did not lay blame  on anybody, merely reporting  someone was ringing the trees.

On graduating from Kit-  silanoi High School in '58, and  with the ink scarcely dry on  his certificate, he took the first  available job with the Bank  in Vancouver, then followed  the usual series of moves, first  to Clinton, returning to Vancouver where in *67-'68 he at-  * tained his first managership at  Dundarave, and Ashcroft. He  also served in . the bank's  branches at Terrace, Merritt  and now Gibsons.  Herb and-wife Joan are the  parents of two girls, Barb, 12  and Kim, 9. Already the fam-  iliy is settling ���comfortably into  their newly acquired home in  town. The girls have made  many new-found friends and  are happy in their new surroundings at school, Brownies,  Guides and all.  A former Kinsman, Herb  figures he will be too busy  familiarizing himself with the  hew posting for a spell, before  returning to service club activity.. He professes to be an  adequate fly fisherman but intends to mend the error of his  ways by taking up deep-sea  fishing, salmon preferably..  He was most outspoken of *  the friendliness of the people  of Gibsons since the moment  of the Claphams' arrival.

I am living common  low with a man but am married to another man. I use the  name of my common lajw husband but all my documents  and records have my real name  'oh them. Is it against the law  for me 'to  use the name Fin  * using? r  Q. 2. I was iri trouble with  the police once years ago and  for .business reasons I dropped  my real name. I'm using an  alias. Can I do this?  Q. 3. How does a person le- -  gaily change his name?  A There is no such thing in  B.C. as a common law marriage. It is illegal to. use a  name other than one's own. A  name may be changed legally  by going through the process  specified in the B.C. change  of name act.  In some provinces in Canada it appears to be legal to  use any name. The BjC. change  of  name, act   states   however  ��� that no person shall _ohange  his name except as under that  act or by legal process such as  marriage, divorce op adoption.  Thais impflies that everyone  has a name. This in turn is  provided for in the B.C. vital -  statistics.' act.  For persons unfortunate  enough to be born out of B.C.,  but in Canada, there would,  normality be some similar act  governing. For persons from  primitive countries where  there is no birth registration  system or for unregistered  births in Canada, Eskimos or  even for those with births registered in, a foreign country  with an alphabet different  from the English alphabet, it  is a good question as to just  what their legal name is.  To return to the three questions - anyone may be prosecuted for breaking the provisions of the change of name  act. The act does however pro-;  vide that no-one can be prose-v  cuted without the permission  of the attorney general and it  is not the policy of the attorney general's department to  give such permission unless  the person concerned is using  a false name for some fraudr  ulent or criminal purpose.  To change a name you can ^  . apply to (the local office of the  director of vital statistics - or  hire' a lawyer to do what is  necessary /which includes the  filing 'of various documents,  advertising in a newspaper  and the obtaining of permission from the director.  j WHAT IS A TREE FARM?  A tree farm is a forest lanicl  voluntarily dedicated to the  growing of timber as a perpetual crop. All tree farm owners  agree to protect their trees  from fire, insects and disease,  carry out a clean, systematic  log harvest and grow new trees,  to replace those taken out. The  tree farm concept recognizes  the fact that a forest is not  static, but is a living dynamic  entity, and that given a chance  it will reproduce itself as a  continuing resource.  BLUEBERRY PROTECTION  Agriculture Canada has been  testing a spray, called methio-  carb, to repel birds which are  eating Maritime blueberry  crops. Early findings show fefw  er birds feeding on plots of  blueberry fields treated with ���  the chemical.

The  V-Xtjoouver iRowing Club opened scoring _-0 on a penalty  kick. The only other scoring in  .the first half was Ken Johnson driving over the goal line  for a tri, which Robert Anderson converted. The score at  half time was 6-3 for Gibsons.  In the second half Gibsons  made two costly errors which  the rowing dub. took advantage of, scoring two tris, one  '" not being converted.
