All that is required to become a bonafide Elf is to set  "aside a penny or more a day  and on Dec. 20 bring donations  of food, canned goods and cash  to Mrs. Crucal's store, Sedhelt,  or Gibsons United Church.  Apart from many private individuals who give generous  assistance co-operaton is also  received from, service clubs  and Legions and many of the  -stores.  Wharf meeting  December 7 has been set for  a meeting, with federal public  works officials to go over  problems which, council has  with Gibsons wharf. This  wharf is, under lease contract  from the federal government.  Fees paid by the individual  user are collected by the Tfrharf  inger 'who is allowed to keep  85% and 15% goes to the federal government. Total fees  collected for 1072 were $6,158;  for six months in 1873, $3,347.  The .service the .village provides is in the form of light  and garbage pickup which,in  1971 came to $1,11- and in 1972  to $742. No revenue is collected by the village.

Some  small lakes were" omitted in a  recent federal order.

Should the water become polluted for any reason whatsoever,-, the economy of the Sunshine Coast will be in jeopardy/'  The letter from the Sunshine  Coast Ratepayers Council  which consists of ratepayer associations from Gibsons  Heights, West Gibsons Heights,  Pender Harbour and Roberts  Creek Community Association  asks for a public meeting to  discuss the issue. These organizations met during mid-November and laid the groundwork for future action.  Here is their letter in part  to Hon. Robert Williams, min-  iser of lands, forests and water, resources a copy of which  went to Don Lockstead, MLA  for this area:  "The Sunshine Coast Ratepayers Council, at the request  of member associations, has  been instructed to take up with  you the minister concerned,  the reason why recommendations and requests by our Regional District for stream and  watershed protection are shelved, set aside, or buried in bureaucratic procedures and delays.  MOur  particular  concern  is  Chapman Creek and' all watersheds thereto. In 1972 our Regional Board was promised a  five year study of this region.  It was stated by Forestry that  to shut down all logging in the  area would entail some unemployment therefore if the Regional Board  would agree  to  the  logging   of   one   block   it  would    offset   unemployment.  The board  did  agree  on  the  principle that  a  study would  be forthcoming before further  logging in the stream area was  authorized. Not one block but  three blocks were logged. This  was total stripping of all trees  to stream beds. We have pictures of this devastation available, not very pretty to view.  "This   logging    was    under  Girt 20, killed  Darlene Maria * Johnson, 20,  was killed in a "'car accident  on the' Davis Bay hill at 2:15  a.m. Sunday when struck, by a  car driven _by Calvin Craigan,  27, pt Sechelt area, RCMP report. ' Craigan now .aces a  criminal negligence charge.  Miss Johnson who lived half  way up the hill had slowed  down to make the turn* into a  driveway when the Craigan  car coming up behind her slammed into her car broadside.  This is the fourth auto fatality on the Sunshine Coast since  Oct. lil.  HOME RANSACKED    '  Juvenile vandals broke into  the home of Mrs. A. E. Ritchey  early Tuesday and left the  place in a shambles. Early reports .did not reveal anything  stolen. Mrs. Ritchey had just  returned with her daughter  Joanne Hildebrand of North  Surrey -with- whom she had  been -a visitor -for a few days.  They found front and back  doors had been opened. Initial  entry was made through a  screened window. RCMP are  investigating.  their' operations' are centered  in the Chapman Creek stream  and watershed area.* >   ;     ..   ;  "Our Ratepayers Council has  tabled a request for a public  , meeting by one of the concerned associations. Council was of  the "opinion that possibly" a  meeting here with you, the  minister, the Regional board,  Council members and other-interested associations -would be  more apt to come to an agreement oh these matters rather  than a public confrontation/  "We would respectfully request that if you do agree to  a meeting here, that it be held,  impossible in the early part of  December. A pertinent reason  for this is we have good cause  to state the logging plans for  ,the area concerned for the 1974  season]have been issued; but  these, are jnot in the hands of  the. Regional Board for consideration of approval or rejection.  - -4JJ7CL -txilker, Secretary." "  V The .delegation winch.

At Roberts Creek church  four were received as members  At Gibsons church ' there  were two baptisms, four confirmations and 12 received into the church.  These additions to church  membership came from East  Kenya, Germany, Saskatchewan and various points in British Columbia. _  Islands have  growing pains  Something is going on in  practically every part of the  Sunshine Coast and it is keeping the Regional District board  staff busy.  For instance Gambier Island  Community Association requests the board come up with  a plan for development of the  island.  Keats Island planning study  group seeks a preliminary proposal for the island. The board  planning ^committee recommends the Keats Island study  be used as a model for studies  on other islands.  The board planning committee -is also awaiting the result  of a count of the number of  fishing vessels and other commercial vessels operating from  T.S.H.   Lie.

Suicidal Party politics  The Employers Council of British Columbia has issued comment on a point which is fully outlined in the  following:  When Ms. Joyce Meissenheimer, a member of the  NDP provincial executive, told the recent NDP convention that the government shouldn't have to represent  everybody, that it was elected to legislate on the side of  labor, she was striking at the root of our whole democratic system. The widely-held NDP tenet that the government should serve only the party is the antithesis of democracy as we know it today. We all have our special interests ��� farmers, fishermen, employers ��� but do we  expect the government to legislate solely for us? The  generally accepted principle is that elected representatives are responsible for the general good of all the people. The alternative is chaos.  Each party, as it forms the government, will naturally introduce changes. But a legislative structure directed  exclusively to any one group, one that would have to be  demolished when the government changed, so that a new  structure could be erected to satisfy the new party's narrow group of supporters, would be a political catastrophe.  We have tried to do away with patronage in any form  for many years ��� should it be Jirought back in such a  major and all-embracing form?  Unfortunately, the NDP convention didn't grasp this  fact. Stout defence of their labor legislation by several  ministers failed to make an impression. The' issue, as stated by B.C. Federation of Labor president George John- .  ston, was' "all about whether the government is going to  ignore the party policy that is democratically set down  at the convention.. .The government says they know better than the labor movement what should be in labor  legislation."  The delegates supported the Meissenheimers and  Johnstons, supported the principle that the party, not  the government knows best, by a secret ballot of 322 to  290. With friends like this, Mr. Barrett really doesn't  need any enemies.  Some Jbelp required  The idea of the government decreeing there will be  a house to house enumeration in 1974 which will form  the basis of the register of voters for the future, is worthwhile.  This is an interesting development because it puts  the onus on municipalities and-Regional Districts to be  in charge of the voters lists. The question asked though,  is does the provincial- government intend to use these  lists come provincial elections and if so why*is the provincial government not helping to finance some of this  work?  MLA Don Lockstead has offered to go to bat for the  municipalities with which he is concerned and see what  Hon. James G. Lorimer, the minister of municipal affairs  can do about it. It is rather a large financial load to put  on any municipality and the expense should at least be  shared by the provincial government.  With Christmas approaching perhaps Premier Barrett might pass a Santa suit on to Mr. Lorimer along  with some cash to ease the burden for both municipalities  and Regional Districts. It could and should happen.  5-10-20 years ago  (By ERIC THOMSON)  Born in Prince Rupert in  ���1921, Robert A. Clothier, oP  Relic, the amiable heavy of the  Beachcombers, is a natural for  the role of the double-dealing  old curmudgeon in Canada's  popular CBC Sunday night  T.V. series.  Bob's father, a rough and  ready main-chance mine owner  operator and prospector. His  mother, a bride of World War  One, was reared in a well-cur  cumstanced county family in  England.  From Prince Rupert, the  (family moved to Stewart, B.C.  ever in quest of the illusive  pot of gold at the end of many  a nebulous rainbow which e-  luded Clothier, St. all through  his active years.  -\  FIVE YEARS AGO  One hundred persdhs attend-  p- a special meeting .called by  Gibsons council to outline its  proposals for a sewage system. Fred Feeney^ was "mayor.  Gibsons and Sechelt Baptists  bid farewell to Rev. and Mrs.  A. Willis in Bethel Baptist  Church.  November rainfall at 6.67  inches "was slightly below average. The high temperature was  56 and the low 29 plus eight  days with frost.  10 YEARS AGO  Autnmn Leaves a booklet  printed by the Coast News for  Mrs. Phyllis Hodgson is now  on sale.  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce   seeks  permission  from  15 YEARS AGO  Heavy rains have caused  considerable damage in Twin  Creek area on the' wray to (Port  Mellon:  Bethel Baptist Church congregation attends a ceremony  for the turning of the first sod  for a new church.  20 Years Ago  Roberts Creek Badminton  Club was host to a visiting  neighboring club when a tourney was arranged.  Sechelt's Board of Trade  plans to organize a District  Improvement from Selma Park  to Sechelt.  Sechelt Volunteer firemen  have purchased a fire truck  which was formerly an RCAF  crash truck.  Less than lVz months left to get your ticket for the  Gibsons Lions 400 Club.  Exposure to the rougher side  of life in B.C.'s mining towns,  was to prove a fortunate circumstance for young Bob. One  character in particular stands  out in his memory, gun-toting  Steve Mangate, a murderer,  wanted by New York police.  Steve lived the life of a hermit and was deaf as a post, a  man to be avoided.  One day the word went out  that Mangate was ill and alone  in his cabin. It was Bob's  father who volunteered to look  in on Steve. As he shouldered  through the cabin door, he was  confronted by the deaf hermit,  wild-eyed and with a .303 rifle  pointed dead on his navel. The  unannounced visitor wrested  away the gun and with the  ' rest of the rescue party bundled him into the hospital It  was Bob's kid' sister, age eight,  who, undertook to tame the  bad man. This she did and.  when Steve Mangate checked  out for good and ever several  years later, he died in his bed  and not with his boots on.  ���    It was these early contacts^  with, colorful  old prospectorf  and back-woods' men in eH-ShS*^  Rupert and Stewart which pro'  vided Clothier  with a wealth,  of authentic characterization.  '  Clothier's  younger year�� in  Stewart  was   followed  by, a  succession of public and private schools  in  Penticton and  Victoria depending on the un^;  predictable swing of the fam-'  ily_ circumstances.-At the age  of IS, Bob was just ripe for  World War Two.  In  1940  he  joined the R.C.A.F. and once  over in England, he was proxnp  tly  transferred to  the  hard-  pressed   R.A.F.   as   a   fighter  pilot. After a number of active'  tours, he put in for transfer to  Bomber Command and was returned to Canada to re-train  for the Pacific theatre of war.  Fortunately, a plane smack-up  resulted in a leg injury, the  result of which he carries to  this day, put an effective end  to his career as a pilot in the.  R.C.A.F.  Then followed the years at  U.B.C. as a student in architecture. He hobbled around for  a period on canes. Meanwhile  he took an interest in the Varsity Players theatrical productions and dabbled a bit in  sculpture. In architecture, the  esthetic side was' fine, but  mathematics proved a bug-a-  bqo and Bob opted out in favor  of the J��P iznmediacy of the  theatre. -  Drama was for him, but  where could a totally undisciplined tyro get a toe-hold in  the almost non existant theatrical activity in Canada 30  years ago? So, off to England,  where he enrolled for a short  term in the Royal Academy of  Dramatic Arts, followed by  several seasons with the repertory theatre, making the  endless circuit around the coun  try. With this experience as  his basic training, Clothier re?  turned to Canada and succeeded in obtaining a series of radio assignments on Vancouver  radio stations. This interspersed with the more personally  rewarding theatrical appear-i  ances,   including   several   sea-  ' sons with the Vancouver Thea-  tre Under the Stars. Here he  teamed up with veteran actor  and radio-television personality Frank Wade, playing farce  comeay routines. Now they  are again appearing in opposite  roles with the' Beachcomibers,  where Bob enjoys the part of  ol' Relic and Frank-is Colonel  SpranMin.  s  When, asked why good guys  off stage invariably found  themselves cast in the role of  heavies, Clotheir said he-felt  villains were always more interesting, especially from' the  actors' point of view. In this  CBC series, now entering its  third year- of production in  Gibsons, he continues to'  thoroughly enjoy the role of  ol' Relic, a sort of wily, though  benevolent character.  In private life, Bob Clothier  gives every evidence1 of being  a happily married man. His  wife, the former Shirly Brod-  erick, an actress of considerable talent.  i' -i.  Their two children are John  /14, a hot bob skiier, who at  this stage couldn't care a hoot  for the business of acting,' although he does concede the  money as an extra bit player  might come in handy for that  new simply super ski outfit  he has his eye on. As for Jess*  ica, just turned 11; she fairly  exudes the atmosphere of the  theatre, a born actress if ever  there was one. Jessica has already appeared before the  Beachcombers camera several  times as an eager extra.  Professionally Clothier's con  cern is ' for ' the continued,  growth of Canada's national  theatre in the making, which  he claims is showing an' increasingly vigorous growth, although up to recently, has  been somewhat slow in this  development.  Bob an ardent classic car  buff is.the proud owner of a  ��jL$Sl' Hooper , Emperor Series  rU_imler, a thing of beauty and  delight, which Clothier acquired "several years ago in Cambridge, England, now all tuned  up and restored to its pristine  appearance. He frequently  trundles it over to Gibsons,  where it takes to our hills like  a breeze and in spite of its  muchly underpowered 75 h.p.  engine, when this two-ton  Daimler once gets, rolling, it  goes like the wind.

(Contributed)  s Thirty people at the school  board's Gibsons meeting last  Thursday could scarcely be  called a cross-section of the  500 families with children in  school. The purpose of the  meeting as stated in an advertisement in the Coast News  was to express views on secondary education. The school  board's news sheet aHi-lites"  sent home through the children  at school, stated the purpose of  the meeting in some detail.  In a community that can  whip up a storm over the number of stops on. a school bus  route and such like details, this��  indifference is nothing less  than paradox.  In 1960 the Chant report sifted through 366 written briefs  to compile in over 400 tightly  printed pages clear recommendations for action to the educational authorities. Despite its  shortcomings in the emphasis  of priorities and the utter disregard by educational authorities of some of its troublesome  recommendations, the report  still stands a monument to public participation in the policies  of educating the young.  At this meeting the public  was not asked to sift and review its views as a written  brief would require, but to discuss a number of printed questions and place a check mark  in a little box to show the degree ,of agreement of disagreement.  Questionnaires are at the  best stultifying exercises since  the wording often leaves the  answerer1 to apply whatever  implication strikes him; for. example, "Are your community's  needs being met by the present system?" can have as many  interpretations of needs as.  there are readers. And what  does the school board or the  commissioner, John Bremer,  gain from counting the number ��f 'Check marks that strong  ly agree or disagree? What do  the tabulators do with, check  marks that are in the middle  box? There id still no way to  clarify thinking other than the  writing of it and the re-writing  of it.  Other questions that may give  the   commissioner  grounds to  substantiate   his   own   views  were those on electing of principals by staff and student involvement in decision-making.  Several Elphinstone staff members felt principals should, be  elected   since   staff   members  were professionals with college  degrees.   Providing   the   staff  were    aware    of    community  needs, this might be worth a  try and then the school boards  could continue to be concerned  only with raising the money.  The Chant report recommendation that principals be appointed after a search for applicants  throughout  the  province  was  never  really   used by  school  boards.   In fact a  number of  school   boards   state   in   their  polics'   books   that   principals  will be appointed only from the  personnel   in   their   own   districts.  An interesting sidelight to  this issue was the Chant recommendation that school  boards may request ..the transfer of superintendents who  have been unable to adjust to  the conditions in the school  district.   '  Since there were only two  students at the meeting, their  views could hardly be taken as  representative of the student  body. Hopefully students will  present a consensus view of decision making to- the commissioner as they have already  done in other matters in education.  If we have any views on  changes in the education, let  us state them now. The lady  minister is -waiting to make  legislation for an improved or  re-modelled education system.  Bookshop has  wide supply  Many new books are on display at the N.D.P. book store  and help centre. A good selection of children's books is  proving popular.. A series of  these written by Elmay Crow  of Victoria is moving quickly  from the shelves.  Canadiana, which includes  Rainlcoast Chronicles and a  history of Bowen Island have  created much interest.  The M.L.A. for this area,  Don Lockstead, spent an afternoon at the Municipal Hall  interviewing people with problems. The following afternoon  he used the Help Centre to  contact people by telephone.  The Land Act has been perused by many people in the  office; which is open from  10 a.m. till 5 p.m. and Friday  evening.

The Municipal act requires  that any election or vote in a  municipality held after the  end of 1973, shall be on the  basis of a new voters list./This  calls for a house to house e-  numeration.   .  In the Sunshine Coast Regional District area this will  most likely be done by areas ,  from -Pender* Harbor to Langdale and in the .municipalities  of Sechelt and Gibsons.  What municipal authorities  want to know i_�� where does  the financing come from to  hold this house to house canvass. Don Lockstead, MLA for  this riding has informed the  Coast News that he will make  a strong effort to get Hon.  James G. Lorimer, provincial  minister of municipal affairs  to handle some if not all the  cost for the initial enumeration  The first such enumeration  would be costly for many B.C.  areas and particularly on the  Sunshine Coast with a 72 mile  ribbon development area to  cover along a somewhat irregular coastline.  , The Sunshine Coast Regional District board at last week's  meeting decided to seek re-  # lief from enumeration costs  and supported the action of  other.: municipalities   in   their  8 at E-phinstone High''''School effort to get financial aid from  field. the provincial government.  their basic course, the choice of  becoming full members piQady  associates. _.':"'  To become a Power Squadron member br lady associate  one must first pass the boating  course.

Powers of Powers Contracting on GamSbier lalhnd  asked for better facilities in  the event ,of an accident case  arriving at, the wharf from  Gamlbier Island  Council maintained he  should install a marine phone  so that he can alert medical  aid to be available when he  had an' accident case to look  after.  Mr. Powers argued if an  accident occurred to one of  his crew, Gibsons is the closest point. He .said on arrival  recently with two accidents he  found the phone out of .order  due to someone pouring something in the coin slot. He  wanted to pay for a parking  lot on the wharf but council  maintained, it could not charge  for parking but there was a  two hour parking limit there.  He also argued he could not  pack machinery requirements  on the wharf and had to get  the material as best he could  by circulating among the business houses. , ,    . ,  He said he had eight boats  working and they required  maintenance. He maintains  that animals from boats on the  dock use his boat as a toilet  facility, resulting in it being  in a deplorable condition.  He maintained that there  are other working units .on  Gambier Island who are quite  ready to pay for good landing  facilities at the wharf. Council  decided it could not help him  and advised installation of a  marine phone as his only way  out.  inUHTED PAtl_a_fl  4649  SIZES  7-15  Student  _�� 7  In making a' report to the  school board on the first two  months   oi   his   operating   as  principal of Gibsons Elementary school, P^ntipal David  Rieanpel' commented on the)  student aid situation, and explained how the systeip. was  - operating . quite efficiently.  Here, is what he said to the  school board:  After considerable discussion  with the staff as to the need  and.nature of student aides,  discussion was begun with Mr.  Montgomery and Mr. Graham.  The.concept .seemed to be a  good: one and therefore plans'  went ahead.  During, my meetings with  Mr. Montgomery,,Mr. Graham  and interested- students very  clear guide-lines were established. The, program is voluntary and the students may.opt  out as long as they follow proper channels..  Students were asked for  their preference as to the type  of assignments they wanted,  and where possible their wishes were complied with. Student assignments, were generally .based on the tasks the  teachers had outlined. Unfortunately, some of the volunteers could not be, programmed  because of a conflict in timetabling.  Prom our point of view the  program is quite successful.  The, students are most definitely .assisting the teachers, and  in my conversations with the  ALBERTA POTATOES  Potato yields in southern  Alberta could eventually reach  22 tons per acre - - twice the  average yield in Canada's biggest potato producing province,  New Brunswick; This promising .prediction comes from  scientists at the Agriculture  Canada Research Station in  Lethbridge, Alta., where irrigation and. fertilizer tests  have already .helped, triple ,tjfc_e  region's potato crop since 1960.  aides, they, inform me that they  are most happy with their assignments as well.-  ,.r At present some 20 students  ^re assigned to our-school and  we, are hopeful that this program will continue at the end  of January, 1974,,.when the  second semester will begin.  Parent Aides:  v v  At a well attended pareiii-  teadher meeting in late .September, one of the key topics  of discussion was the question  pt volunteer' parent; aides. As  a result of that; meeting and  a follow-up meeting on Oct., 1,  .there axe now, some 12 parents  helping at our school. In preparation for these i .meetings  teachers had submitted their  views on the subject and had  also outlined; the .tasks these  parents could perform. Some  of the tasks are assisting in the  remedial reading program, iri  the library, teachers in the  classroom or , assisting in the  supervision at lunch and after  school.  . On a number of occasions the  parents' willingness^ to help  has been the, direct result of a  parent,, teacher, and principal  conference,whicili was concerned -with a . child with acute  learning problems.  fbii  NW MANAGEMENT  HOWE SOUND WATER TAXI  New Brighton, Gambier Is.

The percentage increase on the. value  of those permits has gone up  70.3.  This was reported to the Regional District  board by F.A.  Reyburn,    building   inspector,  in his monthly report. He revealed    that    permits    issued  this year totalled 631  against  4��1 up to the same time last  year.   Values   were   $3,732,700  for 1972 and $6,358,200 for this  year to the end of Novemlber.  In  his report  Mr.   Reyfourn  presented a table showing average   house   price   increases.  The table showed that Toronto's $34, 078 of last year is now  $41,264 and Vancouver'�� $31,-  465 in 1972 is $38,562 this year.  Sunshine Coast 'building records   indicated   house   prices  ranging from a low of $22,000  to $48,000 to average at $35,000.  He added that if local resale  figures were available, he believed the average 'would  be  quite   close   to   that   of   Vancouver.  The increase in the number  of building permits, chiefly  for homes jumped from 324 in  1968 to 631 this year. The 1968  costs of building were $2,237,-  832 and to the end of this  November, $6,358,200.  Funds sought  for area library  Discussion of an area library and ambulance service  came before the Regional District board meeting last Thursday night when Aid. Norman  Watson of Sechelt enquired a--  bout the availability of funds  for the Sechelt library which  he says will soon be incorporated as an area library cover-  ing Halfmoon Bay as well. He  suggested the Regional board  will* eventually have libraries -  under its jurisdiction. In . the  meantime financial help for  the Sechelt library must wait.  He also brought up the ambulance service. To this Chairman Lome Wolverton said the  board was entirely sympathetic to this service. Director  Prank West .urged that the  board await the result of a  government plan involving ambulance   service  provincially.  Get street lights  Street lighting for Veterans  road area will be. arranged by  the Regional District boarkJ  under a bylaw giving the  necessary authority.  The lighting system provided by B.C. Hydro will consist of four lights, two in the  area of the home,; and two on  the frontage road. The area  which will pay for ^the lighting consists of 14 properties  with nine occupants. The bylaw, making the land involved  a specified area, enables the  board to tax that area for  costs of the lighting.

Box 799,  Sechelt  Phone 885-9816  CLOSED ON MONDAYS  TOWING  Coast News, Dec. 5, 1973.     9  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Q. Our firm sold some machinery by conditional sale agree  ment for $10,000, $3,000 down  and the balance at $500 a  month at 1%. The buyer paid  two payments and disappeared  and we seized the machinery.  It' was, by now very much  second hand and we were only  able to sell it for-$2,000. There  was a clause in the agreement  that the buyer had *to pay us  the balance after a resale without any notice. Can we not sue  for the balance owing to us,  $4,000, to say nothing of all the  expenses? --' !  A. No. Your' claim is known  as a deficiency on "a resale. By  the conditional sales act, yQii  must hold the goods for 20  days during which.the buyer  may redeem by'tendering the  balance owing plus all costs  of seizing,-towage and storage.  I don't know* whether you  waited the 20 days but in order  to sue for the deficiency, you  must give the buyer a notice  which should state the following: a brief description of the  goods; an itemized statemeht-  of the balance due plus,costs;  a demand for payment within  five days if the notice is per-  sonally delivered, o_> seven  days if the notice is sent toy  mail; a statement that unless  payment is made as demanded  the goods will be sold. This  notice may be given within  the 20 day period.  The fact that the buyer dis- ;  appeared and he couldn't Ibe  served with a notice doesn't  help you. The act provides  that it must be served personally or sent by registered mail  to the buyer's last knciwn address. You would have to prove  this by the sworn testimony  of a witness, preferably with  the filing, as an exhibit, of the  registered letter slip. The fact  that the agreement contained  a clause making the notice unnecessary doesn't help you  either. .The act applies quite  . asidLe from this.  You can't sue under the payment clause in the contract  either. By seizing, you elected  to keep the goods rather than  sue on the contract. You can't  sue under the payment clause  and seize the goods as well.  You could have sued for payment if you hadn't seized.  Better luck next time.  Blake C.
