Array Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  JOc per copy  Volume 27 Number 16, April 17, 1974.  summer work  Three provincial government  departments are offering secondary school students a  chance to work this summer  Those departments are education, Highways and Human Resources.  A student summer employment program has been ari-7  trounced by the provincial department of education with  funds provided for continuing  senior secondary level students.  Preference in employment  will be given to native fyid_-  an students, girls, disadvantaged and first time entrants  in the labor force. Employment  of these students must not displace any of the normal working force. The program lasts  through July and August based  on an allowance of $420 per  month per student.  This was announced at last  week's sichool board meeting,  who has advised principals to  inform the board as to their1  requirements. District Superintendent R. R. Hanna has  asked principals to speed up  their probable demands, plus  the basis for employment.  Highways  Minister '- Graham  Lea has announced his "department will make available ap1-  proximately 800 jobs this summer under the provincial government's    Student    Summer  Employment, ^Program.  /  - Administ^^YtH_t~^^-J'^  the Department"-- Labor, the  program has been expanded! to  make   provincial  fund��  avail  able for programs sponsored  by municipal governments, Regional Districts and the private  sector as; well as government  departments.       '  The overall project, expected to employ over 12,000 .ftp-*  dents, has a two-fold objective;  to provide jobs at an equitable  .salary for students .who might  otherwise be unemployed, and  to provide valuable workex)-  perierice- contacts and references which will help young  people make the often difficult  transition from full-time stu-;  dent to membership in the labor force.  Hon. Norman Levi, minister  of human resources and; Hon.  William King, minister of la-"  bor, have announced plans to  employ 572 students in summer employment programs in  the Department of Human Resources.  The government sponsored  student summer employment  program is being co-ordinated  by the Department of Labor.  A total of $1,340,499 has been  allocated to employ students  in 'Innovations '74' and 'Experience '74' pragrams.  Students will be employed  for a 16-week period commencing May 6. The ctepartment of  human resources will employ  students throughout the province.

Log salvors discuss pollution  Grant Carson, executive ���'director oif the North West Log  Salvors association reports as  a result of pressure from Don  Locktead MLA and other part-  y members involved, that his  association is working with  the NDflF government on a  policy; covering the clean-up of  forestry debris on land and  water.  In this letter to the Coast  News he outlines the situation  as it now stands:  'In recent months, our association has been rather critical of the Council of Forest  Industries' proposal for and attitude toward the clean-up of  forestry debris. Upon reflection, it now occurs to us that  we might possibly owe them  an apology.'In line with Premier Barrett's assertion that he  does not blame Standard Oil  for taking advantage of the  income tax loop-holes which  allow them to avoid paying income taxes on their Canadian  profits; we cannot really  blame the Forest Industry for  befouling and polluting our  waterways and beaches with  their garbage in the past.  Rather we should blame our  former governments; Social  Credit, Liberal.

Dropouts normal  board in formed  Maintaining students were  dropping out of Elphinstone  scfiool as~the-result' -at WsJ^i-  ing disabilities, and the inab^.  ility to read fluently, Mrs. EL  Reid presented a brief to  Trustee Mrs. Celia Fisher,  chairman of the education  committee.  This brief arid a reply was  placed before last .week-  school board with the result  the board did not agree' the  number dropping out was ex-7  cessive. School population was  placed at 809.  Changes ^ numbered about  115 of which 35 were graduates in the period from last  September to April 1. There  were 38 transferred to other  schools. Replacing them were  34 from other areas. The 35  plus 38 totalled 73 of the 115.  There were '17 students who  dropped1 out to take jobs. Another 15 dropped out because  of personality or home problems. One dropped out because  of a learning disability;, four  for medical reasons, one by  marriage, three taking other  apprenticeship courses, two  auditing students and one unknown.  Withdrawn students now  working started at grade 10  with four, grade 11, eight and  grade 12 five making a total of  17. There were none from  grades 8 and 9. (Students withdrawing because of personal  or home problems were three  in grade 8, none in grade 9, six  in grade 10, eight in grade 11,  and five in grade 12,  a total  3 fire calls  Three fire calls, two Sunday  and one Monday kept the volunteer firemen of Gibsons on  the move. One Sunday blaze  was a grass fire in the .United  Church area. The late Sunday  night call was a passenger  automobile which suddenly  produced a carburetor fire. It  was quickly controlled,  Monday night's call was a  practice event when a controlled fire burned down .an old  building on South Fletcher  road.  of 15.  The board generally regard-  ���Yed the situation as a non-  academic problem and1 that reports of heavy drop-outs was  not borne out by facts. Trustee Joseph Horvath was of the  opinion the absent ones were  out of school because, they  Were not doing good. T_fUBte!ei  Jack MacLeod suggested some  drop put because employment  looks good. Some come back.  Not all are dissatisfied with  school. Trustee Mrs. Fisher believed' the big drop after grade  ten iwas due to other attrac-  . ions and the summary of withdrawals wias a statement of  fact and not a refutation of  anything.  On the subject of curriculum changes Trustee Horvath.  was of the opinion the minister of education, Mrs. Eileen  Dailly was a ''bloody idiot' and  hopes the curriculum will not  be arranged to allow students  to studiy just what they want.  The problem was referred to  the education committee for  deeper discussion.  Fashion shop  owner injured  Climbing a ladder while renovating the premises formerly occupied by the 5-10-15  cents store on Marine Drive  Gibsons, Mrs. Helen Johnson  of Helen's Fashion shop fell  and injured herself and is now  in St. Paul's Hospital, Vancouver nursing one leg in a cast.  She may be hospitalized two  weeks.  The accident occurred a-  bout 2 p.m. Friday afternoon.  Her husband Oscar Johnson  and Mrs. Johnson had recently purchased the Bal Block  from the Howe Sound Holdings, a company representing  the Ballentine family, former  owners who sold, to Dr. Bracht.  The purchase price was in the  vicinity of #125.000. Helen's  Fashion shop is to be moved  from its present Gower Point  road location to the former  5-10-15 cents store.

It is expected  tlie rural routes from Gibsons  will be extended to cover both  areas if the post office authorities decide on making a  change and dosing the post offices at Granthams and Hopkins Landing.  Boat burns  Around 7 p.m. Sunday, a  fishboat owned by Clarence  Joe, Sechelt Indian Band Reserve manager, was destroyed  in an explosion and fire at Porpoise Bay wharf.  The vessel valued at about  $7,000 caught fire when fumes  ignited resulting in an explosion >which shook 16 year old  Robert Joe, grandson of Clarence. The lad suffered singes'  and light burns mainly. When  the fire started the vessel was  cut adrift and allowed to drift  into deeper water away from  the shore. Sechelt firemen responded.  Last Thursday night a chimney rfire in West Sechelt gave  the Sechelt Volunteer Firemen  a run.  Hubbs honored  In view of his services to the  community in pressing for the  construction of a new Sunshine  Coast hospital, Sechelt's Royal  Canadian Legion branch at  Monday night's meeting made  Harvey Hubbs an honorary  member.  Members of the Legion who  know Mr. Hubbs felt he was a  man who should be awarded  recognition for his devotion,  covering 1'5 or moire years association with first the movement for a new hospital and  later for his services on the  hospital board.  Indian Band  to be masters  of own domain  The Vancouver Sun said  Tuesday that leaders of the  Sechelt Indian band are preparing to take over management of band lands from the  federal government. Y  They will be the firjst in  Canada to negotiate development leases on their own.  Agreement in principle on  the management scheme was  reached in Ottawa last week  at a meeting between band  leaders and top authorities of  the federal Indian affairs department, Sechelt chief Henry  Paul reported Monday.  The Sechelt pilot project, to  be reviewed after a year, involves the setting up of a  trust for rental revenues arranged by the band.  Also under the scheme, rentals on lease deals already in.  existence will be paid directly  to the band rather than to the  department in trust for the  band.  Rental revenues accruing to  the band are estimated at up  to $1150,000 for the coming  year and by 1076 could reach  $250,000.  The Sechelt Band has one of  its land projects completed  with full occupancy of the  homes wMch we_e brought in  from; a vacated RCAF station  oh:?ti-e y mw is  iri the Mission Point area. ___s  parcel will provide 75 lots and  when the project is completed there will be underground  water, phones and cable vision  installed.

Kurt Hoehne described Gibsons position in  present day municipal financing quite lucidly to council  when he maintained we have been caught in an inflationr  ary period with high costs and insufficient income. He  did not put it in so many words but this is what he meant.  It could be a long story to delve into Gibsons position from as far back as 1959 when there was an 11 mill  tax rate for village purposes and carry that through to  1974 when our tax rate is 29.96.  However, with the aid of research, comparing Gibsons with other places of similar population, he has a  reasonable argument that Gibsons for many years was  undertaxed. His research reveals this. Take 1959, the rate  was then 10.11 mills. Things were definitely satisfying to  council and population because the tax rate dropped  yearly for five years down to 6.93 mills.  No effort was made for capital expenditures beyond  water main replacements, and as long as no deficit appeared the municipal scene was serene.  There came a rather sudden jump from a mill rate  of 6.93 to 18.71 which was done on the advice of the new  municipal clerk, Charles Gooding who apparently  thought the village needed a larger budget in order to get  things done.  Since then there has been a creeping and latterly a  galloping inflation which has decreased the value of budgets due to the decline of the amount one dollar would  buy. So one can see that inflation can produce a galloping budget while you remain standing still as regards  improvements because of the higher cost factor.  Aid. Hoehne is not striving to point out how poorly  past councils operated. They did the best they could with  the circumstances they faced. Those who remember Gibsons under such council chairmen as Jim Drummond, Alf  Ritchey, Wes Hodgson, and Fred Feeney, and not forgetting municipal clerks Bob Burns and Jules Mainil before  Mr. Gooding, would not be ready to blame them for the  present day municipal financing.  Perhaps Mr. Hoehne's research can be taken as a  guide for municipal financing, meahingJthat municipali- '  ties should avoid low mill rates and spend so much each  year on improvements so the load does not present itself  in one big lump, thus placing,an unwanted blame on the  municipal council of that day.  Aid. Hoehne found .that among the four municipalities used for the research those that had used their collected tax funds in years past were able to maintain lesser increases to mill rates now than could municipalities  who had lived just for the day. To look backwards costs  nothing but it does reveal a pattern which, municipalities  should keep in mind The old maxim that money available  in good times well spent relieves the situation when hard  times crop up, is true but��� if everything is running  along nicely without having to add to the tax rate ���  why worry?  A style guide on the use of  metric units will be made a-  vailable to the public.  The guide, entitled 'A Style  Guide to SI/ is designed to educate the public in the correct  usage of the new metric units  being introduced now.  The  SI  ref erred   to   in   the  guide title is the International  System of the Units (Systeme  International d' Unites), called  SI for short, adopted in I960:  by the General Conference on  Weights     and     Measures,     of  .:' which Canada is a member.,  It  is  the  system of metric  measurement   set   out  in   the  Weights and Measures Act of  1971 for use in Canada.  The guide lists the seven  base units and the derived and  supplementary units used in  the SI system, along with their  symbols.'   Y  It explains the decimal relationships between units and '  their multiples and submult-  iples -and lists the most commonly used prefixes and their  symbols.  In the section on rules for:  writing unit symbols, it is  stressed that abbreviations  should never be used in the  place of iSI symbols. Proper  use of the symbols, which, the  guide points out, are the same  in every language, -makes for  greater clarity and reduces the  chance of mistakes.  The guide lists eight rules  for writing unit symbols. One  in particular will 'be of interest/to anyone who has encount  ered. the SI practice of using  spaces instead of commas to  divide numbers into groups of  three. This is done in the interests Of standardization as  the use of the comma and dot'  as a spacer varies from country  to  country.  The    guide    finishes     with  some   tips   for   easier   understanding  of  the  new system.  To   ease   the   transition   from  one   system   to   another,   says  the guide,  try  connecting the  new units  with  familiar  objects. The next time you pick  up   a   paper   clip,   remember  that a paper clip, which is a-*  bout   three   eenitmetres   long  and   about   eight   millimetres  wide has a mass of about one  gram.  The Style Guide is available  from the Metric Commission,  Box 4000, Ottawa, Ontario KlB  5G8, or from Information Canada bookstores.  In our daily life, we will use  the   metric   system   in   many  ways.    When    we    mow    our  lawns, we will set the mower  for 5 cm, not 2 in. When we  buy a belt it will be so many'  centimetres   long.    When    we  order lumber, we won't order  2 x 4's. And when we step on  the  bathroom  scale,   it   won't  read 200 lb. It will read 91 kg.  We   and   our   parents   and  grandparents have been happy  with Fahrenheit thermometers  our    12-in.    rulers    and    our  quarts   of   milk.   Why   should  we change to the metric system?  One, it is a better system  than our English system. It is  simpler, more coherent, more  logical.and easier to work with  Two, we have no choice. The  entire world is going metric.  Even England, where our system of weights and measures  originated, has adopted the  metric system and,, oyer a period of 12 years, is phasing out  the old system of inches, feet  and yards.  Ease of designing, rationalization of sizes, ease of moving   from   one   measurement  5 to 25 years ago  Saintly accusers?  When it comes to pointing an accusing finger at U.S.  President Nixon because he eased his way through .the  field of personal taxation to his own advantage, one can  only wonder about his accusers. They noidoubt have enjoyed slipping things past revenue officials, therefore  the rampant means available in the United States for  evasion are symptomatic of their general attitude toward  authority.  How many of those people involved in the Watergate affair would come up with an absolutely clean slate  in a nation where political chicanery is commonplace^ an  accepted way of life.  The sooner the nation can get Watergate out of its  system, the sooner the rest of the world will be able to  feel the nation has a chance of becoming morally sound.  Watergate has cost the nation millions of dollars. It is  your guess as to who profited.

British Columbians last year  donated more than 100,000  pints o?f blood through the  Canadian Red Cross. That's  over   12,000   gallons  of   blood.  It sounds like a lot, but divided among the 30,000 patients  who received blood transfusions in 1973, it comes to only  trvee and one-third pints per  person.  The miracles of modern med  icine - open heart surgery, the  artificial kidney, treatment of  leukemia,    are    all   dependent  upon large quantities of blood.  At the same time, researchers in hospitals and Red' Gross  blood banks are constantly  discovering new ways of using blood more efficiently.

(Continued from Page 1)  ponsible practices. Moira Farr  row's article on Bonanza Lake,  which appeared in the Vancouver Sun last Feb. 28, made  reference to logging debris  from 1940. Similar articles  could be written about Harrison, Stave, Lois and Alouette  Lakes as well as a. number of  other areas in our Province.  'Although our present N.D.P.  government is willing and anxious to attack this problem,  it would seem they are not  impressed with the COFI plan  which asks the federal and  provincial governments to  eaich underwrite one-third of  the costs of implementing  their clean-up proposal. Under  the Social Credit government,  groups of log salvors attempted to spur the forest .service  and the forest industry into  taking ,some positive actions  but their submissions were  met with complete disinterest.  The results were the same  when they soughi amendments  to the log Salvage regulations  which would have made it economically feasible for log salvors to recover- lower-grade  material.  'With the advent of the new  government in Victoria, a num.  ber of our members, mainly  in the Gibsons - Howe Sound  area raised the same issues  with Don Lockstead, IST.D.P.  member for Mackenzie and  were very pleased with the interest he displayed. As a result of Mr. Lockstead's efforts  members of our executive met  with the Hon. Robert Williams  members of the government  caucus, members *of the Environment ��� and Resource committee and its predecessor the  standing committee on Forestry. They are all committed to  finding a solution to the problem but estimates of the cost  run from $10 millioh to $100  million and up. Therefore, a  method of recovering at least  a portion of the cost by the  utilization of some of the debris is imp-rative .Because  this government is very anxious that all interested organizations should co-ordinate  their efforts, they encouraged  U3 to once again seek the cooperation of the forest service  and the forest industry.  'In recent meetings with  members of th�� forest service,  we were pleased with the :'co-  operatiori they now offer and  iiapressed by their concern  with the matters wo raised. In  discussions with the government and the forest service,  one opinion is unanimous,  burning the debris is not the  answer. In addition to the  need for recoverin_| some of  the costs from the utilization  of the debris, burning is just  too great a waste to be tolerated. Members of our executive will soon be meeting with  the COFI for discussions. We  hope they, too, are now willing to co-operate in finding a  satisfactory solution to the  problem.  'As i is difficult to imagine  the forest industry being very  anxious to find uses for the.  debris which might compete  with the products of their normal operations; the COFI emphasis on burning the debris  is understandable. However,  as most of the debris arises  from their operations, it is a-  bout time they accepted the  financial responsibility for the  clean-up. It would be refreshing if the forest industry voluntarily dipped into their  much publicized record! profits olf recent years and established a 'fundi of $1 or $2 millions to encourage independent research into potential  uses for forestry debris.  Should they fail to do so, the  government will be forced to  raise the necessary funds by  some form of logging! taxation  which will likely be greeted  by petitions, full page newspaper ads, editorials and articles with sensational headlines. Not much of a reward  for having the courage and  dedication to attack a problem  which. has been ignored for  over forty years by previous  governments.'

Olaus  sen expects the project to be  completed   sometime   in   1978.  'This project,' said Olaussen.  'Is part of the master coverage  plan to bring radio and television services to areas of  more than 500 population that  are inadequately served.'  'The project will depend on  the outcome of hearings that  will decide whether Channel  ilO, should be assigned to a  DBC television production  station tfor . Victoria or to a  commercial �� television licence  in Vancouver,' said Olaussen.  Emergency phone  Support for an enjergency  telephone number has been offered Sechelt's Chamber of  Commerce by Gibsons council.  This emergency number suggested, by .the ISeehelt chamber  should be 9llll.  Sechelt's chamber, noted the  request came from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce  head office. The head o_Bce  maintained that establishment  of a universal emergency  number is most urgent and desirable. Sechelt's chamber asked for Gibsons support. Conn- *  cil decided' to persue the mat- :  ter and write B.C. Tel to see  what could be done. ^"  Truth that heals!  On the Christian Science  radio program The Truth that  Heals, advertised in the Coast  News today, people tell how  turning to God has brought  them lasting happiness.  It is natural to be happy.  Happiness is an integral part  of our beingj not a state we  have to strive for, like someone struggling to clamber into  a heavy coat. We live, breathe,  act in a natural state of joy. '  Feelings of despondency van  ish with increasingly greater  ease when we'. know that negativity is not a part oi our true  being but simply a misconception. Our sense of joy becomes  habitual when we realize that  we are entitled to it as much .  as we are entitled to a name.  For further information or  free literature concerning  Christian Science, please contact the assistant Committee  on Publications for the Sunshine Coast 885-9778.  Instal windows  .Added'-to the normal joy-  ousness _f the Easter celebrations was the faict that two  more stained glass windows  were installed in time for Hhe  Easter event.. One was dedicated to the glory of God in  loving memory of her father  Robert G. Brown by Mrs.  Phyllis Hylton and the other  iwas given to the glory of God^  by two friends of the churdh)  for blessings already bestowed. These .two windows, plus  the two previously given will  be dedicated by the bishop at  a date to be announced latter'.  (Special thanks are due Dofi  Elson of EUsons Glass for work  ing in a high wind until 9 pirn.  Thursday evening with the aid  of the Rector and his two sem&  Bruce and Martin, to complete  the project.  Dog problem  expensive one  council fold  When a newspaper clipping  from a Mainland newspaper  was sent Gibsons council by  . Mary K MoBride, council noted it stated Coquitlam had a  dog leash bylaw. Council also  heard Aid. Kurt Hoehne explain Gibsons had a similar  bylaw but it was not of much  use passing bylaws when there  was no way they can be enforced.  Aid. Hoehne urged the public to consider what would be  involved in setting up an effective bylaw. A poundkeeper  would cost $750 a month plus  the cost of a pound structure,  plus the cost of humane death  dealing device. These would  amount to a considerable sum.  He hoped that in the future  there iwouid be a combination  of the Regional board1, Sechelt  and Gibsons with one dog  pound maintained by all three.  Early service  Gibsons folk of many denominations and creeds celebrated  Easter Sunday Sunrise service  on Sunnycrest Plaza with more  than 100 in attendance. The  event was - organized by Ted  Peters and plans for next year  have been made.  Ministers participating were  Rev. Jim Williamson, Will Erickson, Pastors Gerry Foster,'  Nancy Dykes and Fred Napore  and visiting speaker Rev. Ali  Nessin. ' ���  ��� .  Oppose increase  Opposition to BjC. Tel raising its phone rates about 40  cents per month was registered by Gibsons council when  a copy of the application for  increased rates now before the  Canadian  Transport   Commas-  ���;fipir was- dflsfeuised 1^ Gibsons  council . _  ���'-:' Council agreed to do what it  did! on the previous rate increase and moved that a similar letter be sent to the Union  of B.C. Municipalities supporting opposition- to the B.C. Tel  -request.  Blood wanted  Two blood clinics have been  organized with depots at Sechelt and Gibsons.  The Sechelt one will be held  April 29 in St. Mary's Hospital from 4:30 to 8:30 pjm. and  at Gibsons in the Health Centre on May 2 from 4:30 to 8:30  p.m.  Blood is required by the Red  Cross so those able to make a  ���donation are urged to remember these dates and times..  Quick alarm  system outlined  The delay of a few seconds  in finding occupants in a burning building, caused by. having to search all parts rather  than searching known occupancy > areas first means the  difference between life and  death.  To help Gibsons Volunteer  Firemen make the right decision at the right time, in the  right place, a light in the  Dark program^ has been organized. By placing a Fire Rescue  sticker on oqcupied bedroom  windows or on the doorframe  of each bedroom, it will enable  firemen to search those areas  first.  The presence of the sticker  in the home will constantly, remind residents of the dangers  of fire by being exposed 365{  days in the year to the words  Fire Rescue on the sticker.  Stickers are available from  any member of Gibsons Fire  department in return for don- .  ation's to the firemen's fund,  minimum $1.

Just received your issue of April 3rd  with the excellent editorial  and support of the Guide-  Scout movements on the Sunshine Coast.  How true, if only more adults would take time out of  their busy home life, possibly  forfeit a few minutes each  week from the T.V. tube and  help serve the youth of their  community, what a more pleasant and enjoyable place it  would be for all  We at the Regional Headquarters for the Scout movement are most pleased with  your support and hope this appeal will bring forth responsible citizens volunteering to  help the boys andi girls from  8 to 18 in your beautiful community.  We are most grateful for the  hundreds of energetic and will  ing volunteers who have so  faithfully and unselfishly carried out their duties over _ie  years to ensure that Scouting  and Guiding flourishes on the  Sunshine Coast. ���Jack Adair,  Regional Field Executive  Editor: ITbank you for your  editorial on our Scout and  Guide movement on the Sunshine Coast.  We most certainly do need  help with all phases of our  movement, and this includes  Cub and Scout Leaders as well  as District representatives  from the Gibsons area, Scout  leader and Assistant at Roberts Creek, Group Committee  members and Cub and Scout  Assistants at Wilson Creek.  Sechelt will be needing a new  Chairman of its Group Committee as well as leader assistants for Cubs and Scouts.  We have been very fortunate  in reactivating Cubs at Pender  Harbour and it is hoped, that  Scouts may also be started.  Yes, we are over last year's  registration, but we have also  lost a Cub Pack and a Vein!-,  turer Company in Gibsons and  one other Venturer Company,  so in some respects we are not  ahead of last year.

This would not be possible  without the dedicated support  of a few people who are truly  . interested in the welfare of  our young people in the area.

PLAN ARTS  FAIR  A request from -Driftwood  Players for an Arts Fair during the Sea Cavalcade was approved by Gibsons council and  passed on to the Sea Oavfe_>  cade for its (consideration.

I understand that a per--  son who moved ihY1973 to a  new locality is now entitled to  deduct the cost of moving  from his income for income  tax: purposes. Is this correct?  A. Yes. If you moved to a new  location you may be eligible  under certain circumstances to  deduct your moving expenses  from income earned at the  new location.  Q. I graduated from university in 1973 and moved my  (wife and family to another  province, where I began working. What moving expenses, if  any, may I claim as a deduction on my 1973 income tax  return?  A. Moving expenses are an  allowable deduction from the  salary or business income earn  ed in the new work location.  Any moving expenses in excess  of the income earned at the  Hew /work location in the year  of the move can be claimed a-  gains the salary and business  income earned in the following year.  The  moving  expense claim  would include any of the following  costs  incurred:  1, Travelling expenses, including meals and lodging, in  the course of moving from the  old residence to the new residence.  2. T_ie cost of transporting  and storing household effects.  3. The cost of temporary accommodation (not exceeding  115 days) near the old or neyy  residence.  4. The cost of cancelling the  lease pn the old residence.  5. The selling costs pertaining to the; old' residence.  The above moving costs include those of the taxpayer  and the members of his household.
