An oxygen tube was inserted  in their windpipes and the  lungs were inflated. Soon the  babies began crying lustily.  They were then rushed to separate cubicles in an intensive  care unit where they will stay,  for from six to eight weeks.  .Their mass varied between  2,08 and 1,26, kg. The total  mass was 11,04 kg.  Initially the infante were fed  intravenously, but latest reports, say they are doing well  on diluted milk.  Their father, Mr. Colin Rosenkowitz, told the Sunday  Times: *1 was overcome with  emotion to see six such- beautiful babies.

Private school  proposal made  A proposal placed before Sechelt's municipal council at its  last meeting by Aid. D. H.  Shuttleworth suggests that  council should attract to the  area private schools, military  or naval establishments, on  acreage the council has available.  Council concurred and suggested it could have possibilities. Aid. Shuttleworth maintained that some of the land  . available would be quite suitable for establishments he had  in mind and could provide an  attraction to organizations  seeking acreage which could be  utilized to their satisfaction.  Struggle ends  for back lane  An eight year struggle to  get a through back lane between Toredo and Cowrie  streets from Wharf to Trail  Ave. as an accomplished fact  has materialized for Sechelt's  council.

School bus  rules change  The provincial government  has authorized substantial increases in shareable money  that school districts may spend  on the purchase of school  buses and -on transportation as-  ' sistance in "areas where 'there  are insufficient pupils to establish either a -school or a bus  route, Hon. Eileen Dailly, minister of education, announces.  The government shares in  all 'approved school capital  costs, which include bus purchase, and in all approved operating' costs, which include  transportation assistance.  Mrs. Dailly said the government has set the maximum  shareable amount for the purchase off a 16 to 24 passenger  bus at $7,000 and for a bus  carrying 75 or more pupils at  $26,500. There are several in-  between maximums lor buses  capable of carrying between 25  and' 75 pupils. The previous  top limit was $16,300 for a bus  carrying more than 69 pupils.  Daily per pupil allowance  for transportation assistance is  now set at 25 cents plus 12  cent a mile, with a limit ot,  $2.50 per pupil per day. It was  formerly a straight 10 cents  per mile to a maximum of  $1.20. Special rates are set for  transportation- assistance to  physically handicapped pupils. 2     Coast News, Feb. 13, 1974.

Let's be fair Mr. Barrett!  One should hope the provincial government is not  satisfied with Bill 71 which changed the impact of land  assessments, exempting homeowners beyond a ten percent increase and removing any ceiling on commercial-  industrial taxation.  This is a see-saw arrangement which could alter  with every change of government and sometimes without  a change.  Complaints are made on two grounds, mainly by  those in the small business field. They argue the homeowner not only has a 10 percent ceiling on his assessment  but also enjoys the Homeowner Grant which helps considerably.  For example, for a piece of residential property the  following rates apply for 1972, 1973 and 1974.  In 1972, based on the actual value of $5,000, the assessed value is $2,200 which is the 1971 assessment plus  10 percent.  In 1973, the actual value of the same property is determined by the assessor at $8,000. But the assessed value  of that property can only increase by a maximum of 10  percent over that of last year, which would be $2,420.  For 1974, the actual value of the same property is  $15,000. But the assessed value can only increase by a  maximiun of 10 percent, which would make it $2,662.  Before 1961, assessments on all land and improvements were taken at 50 percent of actual value.  Legislation was passed in 1961 to limit the increase in  assessments to five percent a year. In 1970, the ceiling  was raised to 10 percent.  Under Bill 71, enacted last year, the 10 percent limit  was removed on all roi-imercial land and improvements  and also on vacant land, unless the latter is considered  improved vacant residential 3|md. ���'      -  The problemfacing __r' Barrett is to get taxation  back on level keel withYno exemptions on either side, or  else he will have to go into heavier subsidization ��� which  would only worsen the picture. One of the most beneficial  moves he c^ould make would be to remove the school tax  from the land.  This would be an improvement up to a point. Take  Gibsons for example. For the two years 1972-3 the muni-  cial and school taxes ran fairly even. Then along came  the water system frontage tax of $6 and last year we had  this same tax plus a sewer parcel tax of $80. Those two  taxes made up close to 80% of the school.tax total.  Therefore if he removed the school tax from our  totals we in Gibsons would be standing still as regards  tax reductionY  But ��� and this is the stinker ��� Gibsons council now  has before it a notice of motion that the land parcel tax  be increased from $80 to $110 (up $30) and the frontage  tax be increased from 12 to 20 cents per foot (up 8 cents):  There is also an increased water rate charge from $30 to  $45 (up $15) per year which is outside the field of assessment taxation. This still has to be debated by council.  However, if there is a bright side to the assessment  picture it would be in an increase in total assessment fax>  collection which will provide more thousands of dollars  available to those setting mill rates.  Hoping for the best is all you can do.  5 to 25 years, ago  Five Years Ago  William Scott, was named  G:'b_ons Good Citizen of the  year. He had been Gibsons  fire chief for ten years.

Harris  Two of the world's most populous nations are watching, the  capitalist world! with smirking  Asiatic and Slavic eyes.-They  are, of course, China arid Russia. Did not Krushchev promise  the world that he'd bring inflation to us years ago?'  Incredulously, he was asked  'How are you going to dothat?'  ''Simple,' he replied, inr effect,  'all we have to do is infiltrate  your unions and spread dis-;  satisfaction about _ profit making.'  That was a couple of decades  .ago. A new generation is now  in the labor force of the western  world. Shrewd  and cunning,   Krushchev   knew   that  envy,   covetousness  and   gluttony combined to create greed  in   Russia  as   much   as  elsewhere. "' Their    ideology    had  these human traits under dire  control and he knew that any  effort to control them would  be opposed by powerful mon-  ied   groups  in   the   capitalist .  world. All he (had to do was  promote   these   traits   in   the  unions as well as in the world  of business.  We witness the results of  this planning in England today  where the Communist labor  leader McGahey, a Scottish  miner, is trying to convince  the army that they should mutiny if the Heath government  seeks to force miners back to  work.  Among the miners of. Eng-,  land, Scotland and Wales, probably the toughest most cour- .  ageous   men   and   women   in 7  Great Britain,  are men who  have    already    proved    their  courage at ground level,-at sea .  and in the air in the armed ^  forces at war. It is also true  that a cabinet minister once  said that he had always believed the British miner to be a  stupid person, until he met the  mine owners. That was in the  days before the  mines were  nationalized.  At this point, let us be reminded that the difference between stolidity and stupidity  is limited to the spelling, and,  the words are almost interv  changeabie. Too many people  live and maintain power too  long believing that these are  totally dissimilar words in  meaning, spelling and mental  considerations such as philosophy. It is approaching half  a century since Keynes first  developed and then promulgated his theory first picked  up by Roosevelt in the early  thirties. It contributed to the  application of brakes to the  then rampaging depression. By  the late fifties it was obsolete,  yet Nixon declared with joy in  the early seventies, 'I am a  Keynesian.' Had a .Republican  of Rooseveltian days heard!  that, he would have - had a  heart spasm, apoplexy, a massive arieruism or some similar  attack leading to cessation of  the breathing process. To hear  Nixon say it bo happily is, of  course, a clear indication of  how out of tune he is, how is- '  olated he has become. It would  have (and may have) made  Krushchev ' chuckle in this  grave. ,  And so it is with the philosophy that makes us believe  we should get all the markett  will bear, a philosophy upheld  as strongly in socialist belief,  as in capitalist theory. It is obsolete.        ,  What is the answer? Can it  be found in political circles, re  gardless of ideology? Do our  religious leaders contribute  much to its abandonment? Can  we depend on business leaders  to have a .change of heart?  Some of us have memories  of the" Russian revolution. We  remember the Snowball Brigade that went to fight Bolshevism in support of the unclean  White Russians who had sup-,  ported the tyranny of the Czar  ist regime and how they returned leaving Communism in  complete control. We have  heard of Trotsky,-Lenin, Beria  and we know how Stalin, evil  and cunning and supported by  his secret police, gained control by ruthless, murder and  transport to Siberia of those  wtho opposed his rule.  Do we know very much a-  bouf Communist -infiltration of'  South America , and Africa?  Are we aware of the efforts of  Russia in northeast Africa as  well as Egypt and her allies  or of China and the Indian  Ocean side of Africa, militarily and economically? It is all a  bit hazy and' irrelevent to our  happy (more or less) way. of  life. We know something about  Vietnam and why the United  States took action there. It all  had something to do with our  opposition to Communism,  . their atheistic beliefs and their  police methods.  We have assurance that our  security forces have these people under surveillance in North  America and dreamily wonder  why our sociological bleeding  hearts   oppose, wire   tapping.   .  Let's face  it,  we  find these  things    confusing,    we   don't  want the even  tenor of our  .way upset, we don't want to  'know too much as long as we  ^.can  have more  exciting discussions    about    sex,    pornography,  movies like The Exorcist arid Oh Calcutta, be a-  mused by Archie.Bunker and  Maude or the antics of Hawk-  eye, Mclntyre and Radar. We  just want to live and die in  peace.  We are sick of war and famine, pestilence and pollution.  Yet someone, anyone, can  db  pur thinking ana reading for  us. As long as we have gasoline to get us to work, to the  stores, to our friendly LCB  merchant, we don't worry too  much about whether Nova  Scotia, or Quebec pays more  or less than we do for heab.  (We belong to the happy affluent society that got affluent by believing-in the philosophy that we have to get all  the market will bear. Why upset a good thing?  ��� Well I'll tell you why we  should, because we are going  to be stuck, or our youngsters  are going to be stuck with a  Communist Society and not an  affluent Society unless we do  something    about    it.  'Old gloom himself someone is bound to say, 'trying to  spoil our fun,', to which I answer, 'Why should I worry?  It's not going to happen that  soon and I am riot going to  live that long. Just the same,  - watch it!  I believe that there is a saw  off. -he trick is to find where  to cut and the delay in finding  it is the belief in that" age old  philosophy 'Get all the market  will bear.'  A THANK YOU!

Omelets are always popular  _-____-______M___FIS%    -WV��_MS-_-_f-__M3**> ***���     ������!��� I--3BL  for. a leisurely weekend breakfast or brunch. But have you  ever considered serving one  for lunch or dinner? Prepared  with care they are a real treat  and provide endless possibilities for additions and garnishes  . There are two types of omelets, French and Putty: The  French omelet is flat and very  simple to make, While the Puffy omelet requires a little  more care as it is exactly, .what  the name indicates and will  fall if it is not thoroughly1  cooked.  For a French omelet allow  -two eggs per serving. Mix the  eggs with salt, pepper and one  tablespoon milk or water per  egg: Heat one teaspoon butter  per egg in fry pan until it sizzles a drop of'water. Pour" in  the egg mixture, reduce heat  and  cook the omelet, slowly.  Tilt pan occasionally arid lift  the cooked edge of the omelet  to let the uncooked part run  underneath'. When the omelet  is set but the surface in still  moist, increase heat to brown  the underside quickly. Fold in  half   arid   serve   immediately.  Before folding, set your imagin  ation to work and spread the  omelet with any of the following, alone or in combination:  diced    cooked    meat,    grated1  cheese,  chopped cooked vegetables, creamed mixtures or  even jelly. If you wish, cooked  meat or. vegetables  or  your  favorite herbs such as parsley,  rosemary, thyme or chives may  ���be stirred into the egg mixture  before cooking.,, -  For a Puffy omelet separate  four eggs for three to four  servings. (Beat the. whites .until  stiff but not dry. Beat the  yolks with salt, pepper and Y*  cup milk or water and fold  into whites. Heat one tablespoon butter in fry pan until  it sizzles, a drop of, water. Pour  the omelet mixture into pan  and spread evenly. - Reduce  heat and cook slowly until, the  omelet is pulfify and brown on  . the underside (3 to 4 minutes).  ��� Finish cooking in a 350*F oven  until the top is dry and firm,  to the touch. Make a shallow  cut through center of omelet  and if desired spread with any  of  the suggested fillings  for  the French omelets. Fold and'  turn onto a hot platter.

Think of it this way:  saved  Nopne has to tell you that the time has eome for  all of us to begin using energy resources  responsibly. You probably try to do that already.  But here's another way to look at It: In almost  every case, when you save energy, you save on  your pocketbook too.  Have you looked around your home lately to see  if there are any causes of heat loss that might be  easily remedied? Here is a checklist that may help  you conserve valuable energy and lower your  heating costs:  w*mm��r%mmm*i  E               *v  __._l_l_l_l_l_l_l_l_._l__  H_p_^^^^*i  11  TEMPERATURE:'  Does your house really have to be as warm  as you have it? You probably would be quite  comfortable at 70�� and when you are  working or active around the house. 65��  can be quite adequate. 65�� is also a good  level to leave the house when everyone is  at work or school. Do you want tb sleep  better? Try a night at 60��. You may find that  you wake more refreshed. Finally, if you  take a winter vacation or a ski weekend,  55�� is quite adequate and you'll be able to  get temperatures back to a comfortable  level soon after you return.  UNOCCUPIED ROOMS:  There is really no point.in paying for valuable  heat for areas you're not using. Try this.  Close the registers or radiator valves of  unoccupied rooms. Where you have electric  baseboards, turn the thermostat down.  Afterwardsrcheck to see if there is any  dampness or condensation. If so, let just  enough heat in to establish a satisfactory/  atmosphere. Simple to do but it can save  good money over a winter.  FIREPLACES:  Wheneveryou're not usinayour fireplace,  be sure that you keep your damper tightly  closed. If you find that your damper does  .' not close tightly, or is corroded, or, if your  ' fireplace does not have a damper, seal off  your fireplace opening with a decorative  panel. An open fireplace can go unnoticed,  yet be one of the biggest sources of heat  toss in your home!  FURNACE FILTERS:  Here's an Hem that is often forgotten.  Filters should be cleaned periodically and  replaced twice a year to ensure efficient  heat transfer to the living areas of the home.  And now Is a good time.  FURNACE FANS:  During the cold weather, your furnace fan  should operate almost continually. This  prevents hot and cold spots and provides  better comfort at lower temperatures. If the  fan and motor have bearing oil cups, it is  good maintenance practice to inject 2 or 3  drops of lubricating oil at the same time you  are changing your filters. Naturally, units  that are sealed will not require this attention.  If your fan is belt driven, check that it is not  slipping. (Note: For your own safety, always  shut off the power to the furnace when  lubricating or changing filters.)  DRAPES:  On a bright and sunny winter day, leave  your drapes open and benefit from the sun's  energy. At night and on dull days, keep  them closed for insulation.  These are simple steps that you can take  right now. If you'd like more information on  saving heat through proper insulation and  construction, contact Customer Advisory  Service. B.C.

Cape Scott Story published  By  HARRY CORLETT  ^Reading "The Cape Scott  Story," by Lester Peterson  gave me not only pleasure, but  also satisfied much of my wonder and curiosity as to what  really happened in the Cape  Scott and Northern Vancouver  Island area.  It is self-evident that Lester  Peterson got much information  and knowledge of events from  his own family who participated in the attempt to builfct ja  self-sufficient community, but'  he also devoted much time and  effort in research delving into  past land office registrations  and government actions and  inactions. These actions had  direct effects upon the people,  crushing their hopes and aspirations, finally causing them  to abandon the project, after  years' of contending with nature using primitive tools and  means compared to today's  machinery and ..equipment.  .' If is^ejrind of :Lbool^Jsp5  sure many young people' will  want to read who are more and  more  feeling   the stress^ and  Norm Peterson  LISTINGS WANTED!  886-G607   Freda DuMont  886-7105  strain of modern ���. society^ to  read of fairly receftt historical  events -whereby people yreice  able to live simple lives close  to nature which seems to foster kindness, friendliness' and  willingness to help each other  and to bring about a better understanding of true values for  each one of us during our short  span of time in the human  march of events.  We owe much.to people like  the author who will devote  time and effort in research of  Sound closed  The upper Howe Sound area  is still closed to commercial  and sports fishing for ground-  fish, shellfish and crabs.  This continues the 1970 ban  on these species.when mercury  levels above -normal were discovered due to contamination  from a chemical plant at the  head of Howe Sound. The closure area is northeast of Anvil  Island.  Fisheries technicians have  recently completed their fourth  annual survey of mercury levels in a wide variety of marine  specimens. They found they  were lower than previous surveys but still above the .5 ppm  .level deemed safe for human  consumption by Health and  Welfare Canada.   -  Species affected are lingcod,  all types of rockfish, all -fliell-  fish and crabs.  The closure does not affect  salmon and herring as these  species are transients, and are  not exposed to the mercury  contamination through their  entire life cycle.  SHARE YOUR  GOOD HEALTH  BE A BLOOD DONOR  records and place their findings down in writing in his-  -torical sequence for the present generation and coming  generations so they will 'have  better understanding of past  events, and movement of people.  With the setting aside of the  Cape Scott area as public park  land I also join with the-auH  .thor in the hope that it will be  retained as much as possible  . as nature developed it, restrain  the intrusion of modern transportation, keep a place where  people who have the desire  and need to escape at least f or  a time some of the stresses  and strains of human cozrape-  ition. Also a place close to nature where they can come under its calming influence and  bring about through time to  think, a better understanding  of values and what life could  mean.  This book will have particu1-  lar.^interest to those who wiH  jfra'Wish to hike and travel in  the Cape Scott park area. 10  should be available through  the department of recreation,  i;-. These are some of the  thoughts that have arisen in  my mjnd through reading the  book/which in my thinking  will take its place among others  as a record of historical events.  By Frank & Gwenda Havies  On Monday, Feb. 4 Elpiiin-  stone senior girls travelled to  Hillside on the North Shore.-  The girls played well but Hillside defeated Elphie 35-21. On  Wednesday they travelled to  Templeton. Temp had a very  strong team and defeated our  girls /iby 34-11. The coach is  pleased with the way the girls  * are playing. They meet tough  teams from the city and Elphie  is playing some good ball.  Junior Boys went to Brooksr  for a tournament Feb. 2-3,  which they won.* They won  their first two games without  difficulty and then played  Lake Trail in the finals. It  was a close contest which  Elphie won 61-45. Dave Lamb  played a strong game and won  an Allstar and the M.V.P.  trophy.  .Last weekend the Senior  boys, and grade eight boys and  cheerleaders travelled to St.  Pats. Grade 8's played St. Pat's  grade 9 team. Elphie played  some pretty good ball against  a more experienced team.  The grade 8's coaoh Harry  Turner was pleased with his  teams performance. They passed the ball well and set up  good plays but they were unsuccessful in converting their  shots. At the half St. Pats led  38-35. St. Pats came out shooting in the second half and the  Grade 8's tried to get back}  into "the game but were defeated in the end 76-35. Top  scorers were Raymond Boser  !12.  The Senior Boys game was  extremely well played by both  teams. The lead changed hands  throughout the game. In ^ the  early going of the fourth quarter two of Elphiefs starters^  Frank Havies & Leigh Wolverton were fouled out. Elphie  kept fighting.  Dave.   Neumann  scored   very  well   from   the   outside" and  made some key baskets. With  1.30 seconds left Richard Egan'  fouled    out    of    the    game.  Elphie's rebounding power was  diminishing fast. With 1 minute left Bill ISluis put in a key  foul shot to put the seniors -  up by 4. St. Pats got three  quick baskets and were ahead  by 2,  Elphie came down the  floor with 30 seconds left and  set up some offence. With 10^  seconds    left    Wayne    Smith  scored to tie up the game ait  86-86 and that's how it ended.  Richard   Egan   played   some  good ball for Elphie. He came  through    with   some    clutch'  shots   and   good   rebounding  when he was the only Elphie  man on the floor over six) feet.  Top scorers were Wayne Smith  with 30, Frank Havies with VI,  and Dave Neumann with 16.  Next weekend the Seniors  travel to Sentinel to play a  four team tournament. Kil-  larney plays McNair at, 7:00  and Elphie plays Sentinel at  8:30. Killarney, Sentinel:and  McNair are all double A ~  schools and they are all doing  very well in their respective  14 and Bruce Goddard added leagues.

Understand together.  M0 trail* Khori dMUm ��^oi to Wtowx-ro metim to htm 1Kb tobg I  The true north, strong and free... and  together. How do we Jkeep it that way?  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 other*. That we cannot solve  our problems unless we help a lot of  Canadians to catch vp.  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 now.  If we don't, what will we ever say  to our children and their children when  they ask us, "Where were you when  there was still a chance to save  Canada?"

You may not see the immediate importance of this, but  you can be sure it_ there!  TAURUS - April 21 - May 21  Conditions should be miich better for the sign of Taurus than  they have been for the last  week or so. There's a lot of  hard work involved, but you  will find yourself able to cope  with it,  GEMINI - May 22 - June 21  Business matters are pretty  certain to be (better for this  week. You deserve a lot of  credit for the way you nave  handled all business dealings.  CANCER - June 22 - July 22  Your rewards are not far off.  You should be able to 'breathe  easier' now, when it comes to^  transportation. The adverse aspect is gone from your chartl  This does not, of course, mean  that you should become careless.  LEO   -  July 23   -  August 23:  Things  look  veiy   active  for  Leo right now. You niight even  be so busy, that you don't see  the woods for the trees. Keep  calm and serene, and do first  things   first.   Don't   fiddle   a-  round with unnecessary details.  VIRGO - August 24 - Sept. 22  There's a tendency right now,  to feel that everyone is against  you. This is simply not true.  They may be jealous of what  you   have   accomplished,   but  certainly not against you!  LIBRA   -   Sept.  23  -  Oct.  23  The chart for Libra is very  similar to that of Virgo. Although you may not realize it,  one day last week was probably one of the luckiest days  you have had in a long time.  This may  take  some understanding!  SCORPIO - Oct. 24 - Nov. 22  A lot of gain is in the stars for  Scorpio if you handle things  properly at this time. There' are  many persons looking, to you  for advice and leadership. Play  it sensibly!!  SAGITTARIUS Nov 23, Dec 21  The signs of Libra and Leo can  help you immensely at this  time. Pay particular attention  to say. You have a great deal  to gain by it. /  CAPRICORN - Dec.22 - Jaa.20  There's a tremendous easing of  tension entering this sign now.  A great deal of gain can bes  made   out   of  seemingly  unimportant matters. Don't try,.to  set the world,on fire all at  once. Take your time!  AQUARIUS - Jan. 21 - Feb. 18  If you are wise, it shou-idl be  business  as usual this week.  Trying to do too-much all at  one time, will only slow you  down. There should be some  tremendous gain coming to you  later on this year.  PISCES  - Feb. 19 - Mar. 20  Be silent  when it  comes to  radical   changes   during   the  next week! You'll have plenty  of time a little later to further  your aims in life. Don't get into  arguments!  Copyright 1974 by Trent Varro  All rights reserved.  Park problem  Sechelt's committee for the  improvement of Hackett Park  has asked council for a change  in priorities in a 50-i5O cost!  bearing scheme. It cannot meet  the deadline as regards returf-  ing the park field so asks this  priority be changed to the removal of- spectator seating to  the other end of the park.  In the meantime there has  been a stockpiling of soil for  the returfing job. This will  now be held over until the  end of the 1974 sports season.  The committee of. sports-  minded citizens found the cost  of a tennis court at $5,000 waist  beyond the means of committee and council.   <  WANT POLES NUMBERED  Apparently the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce has  discovered that all trees look  alike.

Coast News, Feb. 13, 1974.     7  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  We hope that sofne of the  recent questions received on  criminal.daty .represent only a  theoretical interest.  , QUESTION: What is the difference between capital murder and'non-capital murder?  ANSWER: Capital murder is  murder, of a policeman, prison  guard,, sheriff or similar'official acting in the course of his  duties. Any other murder is  non-capital murder. The punishment for capital murder is  a mandatory death sentence.  The punishment for' non-capital murder-' is a. mandatory  term of life imprisonment.   '  Q. Can you settle an argument? Can a person be executed only for capital murder?  If, for any other crimes, what  are they?  A. A person may be executed if:  1. Convicted under the criminal code of Canada of: (1)  capital murder. (2) piracy -  under certain circumstances.  (3) treason - certain types of  treason.  2. Convicted under the national defence act of (1) traitorous niiscqnduct in the presence of the enemy. (2) cowardly misconduct in the presence of the enemy. (3) Traitorous breach of security. (4)  traitorous surrender to the  enemy. (5) traitorous co-operation with the enemy. (6) spying for the enemy. (7) mutiny  with violence. (8) being an  officer on board a ship and  failing to defend a convoy.  Q. I read where a juvenile  charged with murder was  found not guilty because he  had been sniffing glue at the  time. Other times you read  where people are acquitted  because they were drunk. Can  this be so? Can you explain?  A. This is correct. Before a  person can be convicted of any  criminal offence, it must be  proved that he had a guilty  mind or-��-:gu_.ty intention. If  a person was so drunk or in  such a stupor at the time of  the commission of the act that  he was incapable of forming  such an intention, he is not  legally guilty.  Boat restrictions  on nine lakes  Boating restrictions effect  some lakes in the Sunshine  Coast area and the planning  committee has been informed  by Director J.H. Tyner; dhair-  man that under the Canada  Shipping act restriction regulations have been placed on  the following lakes:  Garden Bay, Paq, Hotel,  Mixal, North, Klein, Waugh,  (Trout and Kokomo lakes.  Director Tyner has been informed by Harry Okutesen  MP that two new floats will be  a new dock has been promised  installed in Pender Harbor and  for Gerrans Bay.  Texaco seeking  distribution area  Texaco Canada limited1 is  exploring the possibility of est- '  ablishing a distribution centre  in the area and has made enquiries along this line to the  Regional District board.  In turn the board will explain its situation as regards  a centralized terminal facility  for all petroleum products.  However the board has asked  Texaco to submit its own proposal for review.

The word 'religion' comes from the Latin, .eOigare* which  means to join or connect. If religion is not a cause of unijy,  it is better not to have it.  Krishna, Moses, Buddha,. Zoroaster, Jesus, Muha'mmed  the Bab, and Baha'rfllah all come from the same Divifrie  Source of inspiration and all were (Promoters of the progress of Mankind. If their teachings differ, it is because,  mankind, during their ministries, was at different stage,  in the development of its respective needs and receptivity,  because All taught from a Divine 'Plan for the eventual  unification -.of all mankind.) \ r ,  Baha'u'llah came to the.world-when Mankind found itself  - in a particular dilemma:: unite or perish.

Kingdom.  . It would seem that the packed houses they played to would  indicate the desire of many of  us here for more of this type  of family entertainment. Further, it would be an utter  shame that more -people outside of our community Should  not see the fine talent we have  - on the Sunshine , Coast.  May suggestion therefore be  made that -consideration be  given to entering the foremen-  tioned play in the- provincial;  festival. It is felt by,many in'  our area that all the performers^ could indeed give a very  good account of themselves  against any and all competition. Again, to Mr. G. Hauka  and his wonderful troupe of  players many thanks f<jir;the  finest evening's entertainment  my family and I have enjoyed  in a long time.  ���Joseph k. kampman.  Editor: I am replying to the  letter _y L.P. in your" Feb. 6  issue. L.-?. claims that she and  ' justly harrassed on two occasions by local police, while people on boats at the government  wharf appear to be breaking  x every rule in the book.  My husband and I are among  the people she is complaining  about,- and I am indignant at  her sweeping accusations.  We have lived aboard our.  .'sailboat at- the government-  floats quite often in- the last  few years. We work in and feel  a part of. this community, and  have yet to receive any handouts. We have -worked hard to  buy our. boat, and are working  to finish her now. We are paying income tax,- as well as sales -  tax on all of our equipment,  materials and fuel.  We also pay over $100 a year  in wharfage directly* to the  Village of Gibsons. If, we were  , to tie at a private marina, we'  would pay higher moorage due  to   the  high  tax   assessment.  value of marina-property.. So,  then, the only tax, we do not  . pay- directly is property tax,  ' but neither do we receive a  generous home owners^ grant.  She complains that weTuse  too much water. I would like  to point out  that, * while the  , average household uses over  ;  100 gallons a day, most boats  carry a fraction of that amount  in tanks and use it very spar-  Coast News, Feb. 13, 1974.     Q  ingly. The reason the water tap  is lejft running at times, unless by^ accident (or pranksters)  is so that St' will not freeze* and  burst the pipes. *Then all those  w_ib .share the solitary tap  (fishermen, log salvagers, tourists, live-aboarders, and other  boat owners) could be without  water for weeks.  Also, she is not entirely right  about people getting away with  drinking at the wharf. I have  ,  witnessed a person'wCho was  charged   and   fined   $50   for.  drinking beer aboard his boat,  and yet have seen more afflu-  '  ent tourists who were not fined for drinking cocktails right  on.the float.  -Tor are the vehicles of live- .  aboarders immune to parking,  tickets ������' the police are quitof  diligent in that aspect.  .  , Not that I am complaining  '  about the ROMP. Most of thfem"  can see the difference between  a real lawbreaker and someone  who1 merely chooses to live .differently.  - -In- future, 1 hope that LfR.  limits her accusations tb those  spe'cifie individuals whom she  knows to be breaking the ;law.  .VFew'"pebple would want to  put up with- the inconvenience,  lack .of privacy, and sometimes  tiresome and unjust local har-  ras'sment that accompanies boat  life. It has been my experience  that most who do are hard  working, law-abiding- individuals, just like most people who  live ashore. -   ���DIANE LEE MAXTED   .

This  means double savings and  greater comfort.  If you fail to vent the attic  space over insulated ceilings  you may seriously reduce efficiency of insulation, and perhaps cause condensation of  moisture which will ultimately  lead to water stains and costly  wood rot.  .Crawl space floors should  ���be tcovered with a vapour seal  to prevent moisture evaporating from the bare ground and  causing condensation in the  house. It is ���- important that  crawl spaces also be vented.  Moisture should always be  guarded against as damp insulation conducts a greater a-  mount of heat to the oudpors  than is the case with c_ry insulation.  ��or each layer of glass that  is added to windows, either  double glazed units or storm  sash, the amount of heat lost  will be reduced by as much as  50%. This represents an important fuel savings.  Double windows also reduce  condensation and steaming,  which if severe can result in  Pat Goode to  head Liberals  Following the recent resig  nation of Mr. TedOBuie as president of Liberal Coast Chilco-  tin association Mr. _*at Goode, ,  past president, will take over  the affairs of the Riding until  a full, executive meeting can  be held to appoint a new president, Bob Berger, regionail  vice-president announces.

Two-day event  for Witnesses  The Secfhelt congregation of  Jehovah's witnesses was among  the-.3,-107 at a two day assembly at the P.N.E.'s Agrodome,  Feb. 2 and 3. .  The assembly was the first,  in-a nexyseries for .the witnesses. The .program . and theme  Love One Another' Intensely  from the Heart, will be repeated throughout British Columbia at a different assembly - ���  Thall every weekend for the  next six months. The series  will climax this summer with  larger 'district assemblies held  in Vancouver, Terrace and  Nanaimo.  Sixty-three new ministers  were baptized by complete  water immersion in symbol of  their dedication to serve their  God Jehovah. .  Distance was the main problem faced bjr representatives  who attended the 1974 annual  general meeting and election  planning session of the-Coast-  Chilcotin federal N.D.P. held  in Vancouver.  Harry Olaussen, NDP, MP for  Coast-Chilcotin, led off with a  discussion of NDP national oil  policy. He pointed to the work  of the federal NDP in securing  a temporary price freeze west  of the Ottawa Valley line, an  export tax to prevent -"windfall gains by the international  oil corporations and a commitment to establish a National  Oil Corporation.  Olaussen called for public  control over the oil industry  in Canada, a goal of Canadian  self-sufficiency that will require pipeline construction and  a one price system for oil and'  petrolem products consumed in  Canada.  Olaussen also called for  compensation for the producing provinces that would be'  selling below world rates. He  attacked the government of  Alberta. Increased revenue  gained by Alberta will be large  ly turned over to the interr  national oil corporations, he  charged. But ���Saskatchewan  wishes to make use of revenues  from oil production to promote  development within that province.  Representatives to the meeting also discussed plans for  the next federal election and  accepted a series of assessments on each local club to  help finance the campaign.  Officers elected were: President, Ken Barker; vice- pres  ident, Ed Johnson; secretary,  Linda Moseley; and treasurer,  Wendy Bone; (Gibsons)'. Also  elected to the executive were:  Mrs. E Ross (Texada Island),  Verena O'Byrne, Chris Baal  and Brian Joheson (Powell  River), Ed Nicholson (Sechelt),  John MeNevin (Hopkins Landing), Jim Lehman (Squamish),  John Mitchell (Lillooet) _E_ank  Frigon (100 Mile.

King, minister of  labor, has released information  regarding the magnitude of the  wage increases bargained for  the province's organized labor  force during the past year. The  information was prepared by  the department's research and  planning branch as part of  their program for the production of current, statistical^  sound information regarding  the labor sector of the Britislh  Columbia economy.  Although the information is  preliminary and subject to  change as late settlements are'  brought to the attention of the  department, t>he minister noted  that there were 322 major eol!-  lective  agreement  settlements  during 1973, covering a total of  84,098 employees.  Increase in the hourly earnings as provided by these settlements averaged 10.3 percent  or 48 cents per hour. Skilled  employees, averaged wage increases of 10.2 percent, or 54\  cents per hour, While the unskilled job classes averagedi  increases of ld.3 percent or 43  cents per hour. The minister  explained that although, the  average wage "increases seem  to be very high, they are in  keeping with ,the current rate  of inflation and the overall expansionary aspects of the provincial economy.  During the fourth quarter of  the  year,   41  settlements  oc-  C_nIDB  On Tuesday, February 19th  one of our representatives  MR. W.' E. EPPS  will be at  Sunnycrest Motel, Gibsons, 9 - 11:30 aan.

Average annual increases in hourly earnings of -1.3 pencent or 55 cents  per 'hour were provided for' in  the settlements. Manufacturing settlements .provided for  increases of 10.3 percent or 53  cents per hour. Trade and ser-  vice agreements provided for  increases of 10.5 percent or 45  cents" per hour and mining,  transportation, communication  and other utilities agreements  averaged 13.0 percent or 60  cents per hour.  The Research and! Planning  Branch of the Department of  Labor has released the Labor  Dispute Statistics for 1973.  Appearing in the January issue of the I^abor Research Bulletin, the preliminary figures  indicate a sizeable drop from  1}972 in.the number of man-  days -lost  due  to   labor-management   difficulties.   In   1973  there were  705,525  man-days  lost in 142 disputes involving  96,078 workers as compared to  2,120,848 man-days lost in 101  disputes involving 106,399 work ,  ers in 19712'. The major areas of  industrial   conflict   were,  the  Manufacturing and Transportation   sectors  where   disputes  accounted for 70% of the total  man-days lost.  Providing another perspec- .  tive, the minister pointed out  that although the time loss due'  to ��� labor-management breakdowns was regrettable, it represented only^ 0.3119 percent  of the total working time of  wage and salary earners.

The ship is a complete seagoing oeeanographic laboratory, specially equipped to  study the water structure and  seek out pollution threatened)  areas, particularly in the vicinity of lumber mills.  With   her  two sister  craft,  patrols the coastal waters from  the Straits of Juan de Fuca,  north to Juneau, Alaska. Commanded by Thomas Scanlan,  a native of County Cork and  manned by a crew of 17 with  special     accommodation     for  eight oceanographers, all scient  ists at U.B.C., the Vector could  be the cleanest and tidiest ship  afloat. Right from the spotless,  gleaming engine room to the  polished brass, of her bridge,  she is immaculate.  . This,   as   indicated   by   her  skipper, is in keeping with the  Dept.   of   Environment,   anti-  polution requirements but the  name Vector is opposite to that  of the Oxford dictionary definition  of  Vector:   a   carrier  ' of disease or. infection.

Served!  apprenticeship -jvith two thirds  generation luthiers, 19C6-67, in  Spain. Build's guitars of all  types, (except electric), lutes  harpsichords and other historical stringed instruments.  This type -of introduction  can be written about a select  few interested in what is  known as baroque music. Baroque is a term used to _escribe  the tendencies, prevailing in  European art .three or four f  centuries ago. Toward- the 18th  century ' the mobdv turned to  rococo allowing even more  freedom in the arts.  .Micheal Dunn and his wife  _ Gerri, have settled at Hopkins  Landing where they continue  work started in Gibsons, making baroque musical instru-%  ments.  The example in the illustration accompanying this article  reveals the amount of patient  "work needed to complete an  instrument., For instance the  woods making the side of the  instrument are allv separate,  pieces carefully cut and pieced  together, -requiring considerable skill.  Micheal- Dunn's work in the  Page 1 picture shows the 2_-df  such instrument made in Canada. , He^ also made the first.  He is a member of the Society  ' for Early Music.  -'   ��� He has turned out more than  100 instruments of varied type,  steel string or classical guitars,  three harpsichords, one virginal and several lutes. His work  can be found at various points  ~ across Canada.  Mr. Dunn before moving to  Gibsons area was part of an  , Instrument Shop on West  Hastings St., Vancouver where  he and" four others combined  workshop efforts for the production of instruments at then:  The First Canadian Bank  Barik of Montreal  ��*v  TO Hi BA!

The  production from this workshop  involved the making of various  baroque period instruments..  Writing in the quarterly  named Craftsman for Canadian Craftsman Association  members, Mr Dunn revealed  that a great deal of research  has been done by the luthiersi  at the Instrument Shop on the  construction and design ^ of  stringed instruments; especially the guitar, lute, harpsichord, ,  dulcimer, and hurdy-gurdy.  Many. of the instruments  made in the shop are carefully  constructed replica�� of these  originals using-identical materials whenever possible.  These instruments range from  French double-manual harpsichords down to the tiny octave lute which is only thirteen  inches long! Most important is.  the fact that such copies will  sound like the originals as Well  as look like them so that the  old music can be brought back'  to life when played on these  new^-instruments.  Traditionally,. ��he luthier  took every, opportunity to ex>  e_ti-e and * -demonstrate hia  skills as a craftsman in ways'  that were not related directly  to the musical aspects of the  instrument. These took the  forms of carving, painting and  inlaying with- exotic .woods,,  iyory mother-of-pearl' and  other fashionable, materials.  Any musical; instrument, no  matter how ^.pleasing visually,  remains unfulfilled until it is  used in the creation of the mus  ic for which it was intended.  The primary aim of the luthier,  then, is to construct an instrument capable of producing a  rich and pleasing sound. In  the guitar and lutetihe emphasis must be on response ahd  balance. Since it is the player  who must ultimately create  the music, the instrument must  be responsive to the various  techniques he used for his  musical interpretations, moods,  and. feelings. Most of my instruments are built*on commission and one of the first  problems is to find out exactly  what the' customer's requirements are.  The popularity of the guitar  today has given rise to a  search.for improvements and  both-classical and folk guitars  are thought ��� by many to have  greater potential than they are  given credit for. The harpsichord, lute, and violin reached  their full development in the  17th and 18th centuries making  the guitar a relative new-*  comer having been developed  to its present form by Antonio  Torres in the middle 1800-L  Most classical guitars are built  according to Torresf design  although in recent years guitars have grown in size to produce the volume and ability to  project   that   is   required   by  the concert hall.  (Today the. guitar may have  -reached its largest, size practicable without adding more  strings or changing its tuning,  again a matter of endless discussion and conjecture among  musicians and makers. It is  probable that the guitar has  reached its full development  todays and further refinement,  will be according only to the  skill and expression of the  craftsman.  Big boom!!  The big boom about 9 p.m.  Wednesday last week startled  practically everyone in the  Gibsons - Sechelt - Langdale  area.
