Sechelt dance  hall gets veto  The proposal to make a section of the new1 empty Twin  Creek -Lumber plant in Sechelt  into a dance hall was turned  down by Sechelt's council after hearing a report from the  building inspector.  The report maintained the  premises were not the proper -  type for a discotheque. On this  basis council rejected the proposition as presented by James  B. Grattan on behalf of Gerald  Ruth and-Barrie iPoppenheim.  Gibsons tax  rate oft fraction  WHAT IS IT? It is where tne new road is  going through to escape using the S-turn  as a highway.

There were 4,000  government wharves in Canada and 300 of them in BJC.  Canada Shipping Act regula  tions on pollution have been  drafted but not promulgated.  Officials are awaiting the capability of dealing with the  problem but at the present  time' do not know how.  " As matters stand even if local laws" forbid dumping into  the wharf area there is nothing to stop anyone going into  deeper wtater outside local jurisdiction and dumping undisturbed. B.C.

New dishes hit smorgasbord  The Hospital Auxiliary May  Fiesta smorgasbord, Saturday,  ���which drew quite a strong following in Gibsons Legion Hall,  featured two new dishes this  year. They were sweet and  sour sausage ahd Norwegian  meatballs.  Members of the Gibsons  Auxiliary worked very hard to  make it the success it was.  Much credit goes to Marge  Langdale and Jean Longley as  convenors and to Grace Jamieson in charge of food. Gaily  colored miniature maypoles  decorated each table. The smor  gasfoord table was the centre  of attraction with its centrepiece of a huge basket of spring  flowers and laden with a variety of foods.  After dinner the Penn Kings  struck up the music to bring  everyone to  the. dance floor.  Door prize was won by Dor-  *een Matthews.

First aid for  Grade sixers  Red Cross is now .working  with St. -John' Ambulance and  the provincial department of  education on a project that  they hope will introduce the  Red Cross first aid course -to  all grade six children in BC  and the more, advanced St.  John Ambulance course to all  secondary school students in  the province.  Red Cross  Youth  now has  a- staff of four part-time field.  consultants    who    are    either  teachers or nurses, who work  out of Victoria, Nanaimo, Kelowna and Prince George.

April moist  April's rainy weather was  well above the ten year average of 2.93 inches and appears  to have some left over to of-  ' fer in May. The actual rainfall was (nosnolw) 4.30 inches.  The maximum high temperature came on the last day of  the month, April 30 and gave  us a 6Hl degree high. The low  was 33 degrees on April 12. So  far it has beeh a cool, wet  spring..

Sewer system revenue will  be close to $142,000 with $115,-  000 being alloted towards reducing the debt on the system.  Trustees seek  convention aid  Sunshine Coast school trustees headed by Chairman Mrs.  Agnes Labonte attended . the  70th annual general ^meeting  of the B.C. School TrdsVees  association with the idea of  seeing what efforts the' meeting would" evoive to acquaint  the1 department of education  that,, ^sphool boards needed  more help.,,  *~"Fouf'~truste__rand the'chair-  man attended.. The trustees  were Celia Fisher, Joseph Horvath, John MacLeod and Peter  Presceski.  BCSTA President Pat Walsh  said that if the pupil-teacher  ratio is reduced at all next  September, the money will  come from local taxpayers,  not the provincial treasury.  Walsh said from replies to a  survey of the 74 school boards  in the province, it became  clear that the provincial government's $21 million in supplementary and special aid  grants would not in fact achieve the stated objective of  reducing the pupil-teacher ratio.  'We told the minister a  month ago-that school boards  across the province needed an  extra $15 million just to keep  pace with inflation' said Walsh  'Any funds to reduce the pupil-teacher ratio would have  to be in addition to that a-  mount.'  Walsh said that the survey  revealed that only the high-  growth districts in the province received sufficient provincial funds to reduce the  ratio by 1.5 next September,  but he added that the reduction was unlikely to happen  in these areas because high-  growth districts do not have  the extra classrooms to accommodate these additional teachers.  Walsh  listed  a number of  findings from the BCSTA sur  vey of school boards. First,, the  government   funding . had no  significant effect on districts  withjthigh pupil-teacher ratios  nor aid it have any effect in  equalizing mill rates between  districts.     The     government  * funds also failed to bring the  range of pupil-teacher ratios  closer together between school  districts.  Y.    . '  Y*In several, large school,districts with no growth _h student "enrolments/ said Walsh  'the government funding produced no change in the pupil-  teacher ratio, but the boards  themselves managed to reduce  the ratio through increases in  the  mill   rate,  which means  higher  taxes.; As  I  indicated  earlier,  the  Minister's stated  intention was  to reduce the  ratio using  provincial funds.  In effect, in every case where  the pupil-teacher ratio was reduced it was reduced by local  taxes,   not  provincial  fun<3s.'  BCSTA calculations indicate  that if the school boards had  not   increased  taxes,   if   they  had maintained the same .mill  rate as last year, the pupil-  teacher ratio would have increased by 1.8 pupils per teacher.  "Phis serves to illustrate,'  said Walsh, 'that it's really  local taxes that are being used  to reduce the ratio, and the  Minister's . funds are simply  picking up the deficiency in  provincial government funding through its education finance formula.  'I feel it is important for the  citizens of this province to understand that it is their local  tax money and not extra provincial funds that will reduce  the ratio. I don't want to see  the school boards taking the  rap next September if the pupil-teacher ratio has not been  reduced by the government's  1.5 pupil per teacher.'  Three nurses at convention  More than 400 registered  nurses are expected to register for the 62nd annual meeting of the Registered Nurses'  Association of British Columbia (RNABC) at the Bayshore  Inn, Vancouver, May 8, 9 and  10.

Box 460/ Gibsons, B.C  1974 assessments  Gibsons  Sechelt  Regional area  Total  1973 Ass.  $4,744,227  2,241,574  59,340,610  $66,326,411  Increase  $1,238,239  894,877  13,287,135  $15,420,241  While mulling over the effects of the $200 homeowner grant ($250 if you are over 65), take a look at the 1974  assessment figures for the Sunshine Coast. Then wonder  what effect further real estate inflation will have on  your next year's assessment unless the government decides to go along with this year's figure.  Last year's assessed values were $66,326,411 for the  entire Sunshine Coast region, $59,340,610 for the Regional board, $2,241,574 for Sechelt and $4,744,227 for  Gibsons.  By subtracting last year's assessment figure from  this, year you find the Regional board area is up $13,287,-  135, Gibsons up $1,238,239 and Sechelt up $894,877.  If you desire to read those figures in tabular form,  here they are:  1974 Ass.  $5,982,466  3,136,451  72,627,735  $81,746,652  One can think over the solacing thought that the  only thing raised on some land is taxes. Someone once  said we owe it to our country to pay taxes without murmuring; the time to get in our fine work is on the valuation. You may well understand that these days valuation  has gone beyond the fine point.. It is one of inflation's  leaders.  Bills 82 and 84  Legislaive bills 82 and 84, one a Community Resources Act and the other a Human Resources Facilities  Development Act, would appear to be an extension of  the Regional District board idea in to the field of social  development. Both bills are sponsored by the minister  of .Human Resources, Hon. Nonnan Leyi.  The bills request the municipal councils and regional boards to set up boards which will be responsible to  the minister through a director of human resources, an  associate deputy minister. 7::Y:YY; Y7.Y v,,^.,,/.':'v;y'.       *  TJp7tb ^  three municipal organizations to have selected a coh_-  mittee. The council of Sechelt, also the Regional District  board are not so sure yet what action will be taken. Both  are somewhat diffident about coming to terms with the  proposed legislation.  The Regional Resources board is to encourage public involvement defining requirements for social services  and to help and assist in the administration and operation  of the Community Resources board within its region.  The Community Resources boards will be at the  public level to encourage citizen involvement in all concerns that affect the quality of life in the community.  Both measures will require a considerable amount  of understanding before one grasps just what the minister has in mind.  The proposed legislation then has a director in Victoria to which the Regional boards look for advice. The  Community board will have a board of directors of not  less than 10 or more than 15 members, elected by ballot  for two years. This board can expand its operations to  include professional people and can deal with the minister on funds from various government funds.  The labor minister seeks boards of inquiry under the  Human Rights Code. This is the area in which Gibsons  Council has stepped and which the Regional Board and  Sechelt council are hesitant. '  Trying to mesh this legislative activity into a cohesive understanding of. the three governmental actions  may even have the government somewhat submerged in  a quandary. Perhaps clarity may come when the issues  receive debate in the legislature. Let's hope so.  5 to 25 years ago  Five Years Ago  April rains were heavy, 6.06  inches during 19 days. Normal  rainfall was 3.20. Temperatures were 61 high and 32 low.  The first government pollution board public hearing on  dumping sewage off Gospel  Rock area has been called for  May 14.  10 Years Ago  April's rainfall was half the  normal 4.1)2 inches with nine  days of rain and five with  frost. High temperature 65,  low 29.  A building permit has been  issued by Gibsons council for  a $50,000 Co-op store.  15 Years Ago  Les Peterson urges Gibsons  Ratepayers association to support organization of a museum  for Gibsons area.  A   stormy   meeting   of   St.  Mary's   Hospital Society   saw  a motion to vote the societty  board out of office defeated.  20 Years Ago  The  Independent  Order  of  Odd   Fellows   organized   the  Sunshine  Coast Lodge  76 in  Gibsons Legion hall. .  25 Years Ago  Thirty . visitors from Vancouver attended Gibsons Kinsmen's Charter night. Alf Whiting was president of the new  club.  This is a time of reappraisal  concerning the position of  women in society and in the  home. Certain traditional assumptions and values are being questioned and changed.  This relates both to the increasing participation of women in the economic workforce of the nation, and to  changing attitudes concerning  the position of women within  the fundamental unit of Canadian society - the family."7;/ ; Y  This basic reappraisal t>ears.  upon the Canada Pension Plan  in two main respects:      Y.  (1) Certain provisions "within the Plan accord different  treatment to male and female  contributors and beneficiaries,  and this has been questioned;  (2) Views have been expressed that housewives who  remain at (home, and! do hot  draw salaries as members of  the working force, should be  enabled to participate in the  Canada Pension Plan. Y  Action  is   now   under   way  with respect to the first issue;  The   government   of   Canada,  with the full agreement of all  provincial     governments,     is  placing legislation  before the  1974 session of Parliament to  establish full eqality of treatment for male and female contributors    and    beneficiaries.  The  second  issue  was  discussed by the federal and provincial welfare ministers at a  meeting in Edmonton in February, 1974, as a part of their,  review of the social security  system.  All   governments   recognized that there were cq%  plex     difficulties     associated  with   the   implementation   of  this  objective.  The ministers  agreed, however, that the various . possible   approaches - tp  meeting this objective should  be given serious study. The issues involved need to be examined not only by govern^  ments, but by puiblic at large.  This has been prepared!, therefore, in the hope that it will  provoke wider  public  discus-_  ^isicm Of the issues,, an#7$1&$|;  v from this discussion the7hestf.  answers may emerge.       Y 7  .���'..���-��� The central features of the  issue,   the   consideratiohs   involved, and the practical range  of options for the future were  set forth clearly by the Royal  Commission on the;Status of  Women. In the words of the  commission: �����  ���With rare exceptions, the  woman who stays at home depends on Yher husband for  money. While she may receive  a family allowance cheque, the  money is spent on the cost of  keeping a child and1 cannot be  regarded as payment for its  care. Unfortunately we have  no over-all solution for the  financial dependency of housewives. But there is one area  in which steps could be taken  to give them some financial  independence at least in their  later years. Housewives, should  be entitled to pensions in their  own right under the Canada ,  Pension Plan  Those who advocate the  participation of housewives in  the* Canada Pension Plan appear to have two goals in  mind: tp give recognition to  work in the home as regular  employment or provide some  measure of financial independence to the housewife.  There are a number of alternatives Which can be considered, and which would meet  these goals to a greater or  lesser degree. These alternatives niight usefully be classified1 into two main groups:  Those whicli would be most  consistent with the basic principles currently governing the  Canada Pension Plan, and  those which would introduce  new principles into the Plan  (voluntary participation).  In the paragraphs which  follow, an attempt will be  made to identifj^'the main alternatives which fall under  these categories, and to describe the principal issues a-  rising out of these alternatives. ' ���  '*  The   Canada   Pension   Plan,  as  presently  constituted,  pro  vides income protection for  the family unit. However, an  unfortunate .situation can a-  rise for the -housewife who  has remained at home, when  a family unit breaks down. In  suoh a case, all of the accumulated pension credit in the  Canada Pension Plan reihains  with the husband, while the  wife is left with nothing. If  she enters the labor force at  this point, she does then begin accumulating hei; own pen  sion credit, but her married  years were lost years in terms  of building up income protection under the Canada Pension  Plan. ��� ;; v-Y::YY7  It' may   be   that   Canadian  Women would regard this as  being the primary concern of  the housewife with the Canada Pension Plan. If so, legislation  which^ would   provide  for an automatic split of earned pension credits at the time  of marriage breakdown niight  v^ell   meet   the;  concerns   of  housewives, at least to an acceptable  degree.   Under such  a   provision,   earned   pension  credits   for   the   family   unit  could! be totalled and dividend  by two for each of the years  during   which   the   marriage  contract   was   in   effect,   and  these amounts would be credited to the records of earnings  of each of the marriage part-  .  hers, who would then go their  own    ways.     This    approach  could be applied both in the  case   where   there   has   been  only   one   wage   earner,   and'  where 'both marriage partners  have been in the labor force.  It would presumably be possible to create a cash income  for the housewife by requiring  the husband to pay her a wage  '  for her work in the home. Be  cause she would then be receiving   a regular  wage,  the  housewife    would    contribute  to the Plan in her own right,  and so build up her own pension entitlements.  This   approach   Would   certainly give recognition to work  in the  home as regular employment,  and' would provide  a  measure of financial  independence   to   the   housewife.  However,   it   seems   unlikely  that   most   Canadians   would  find this to be a satisfactory  alternative. It is necessary to  ask how many Canadian families would consider it acceptable   for  the   government   to  intervene in this way in the  financial   arrangements   made  between  husband   and   wife?  Also,     how     many     families  would   consider it   acceptable  to be required to make! additional Pension Plan contributions from the same level of  family income?  Another alternative that has  been advocated by some is to  permit the housewife to contribute to the Canada Pension  yours for th. asking right now.  Plan, on an optional basis, as  a self-employed worker.  This alternative might work  in one of two ways. In the  simplest case, a family in  which the husband is the sole  would appear to be as follows:  wage    earner,;     the     choices  (a) The family could be allowed to assign a portion of  the husband's earned pension  credits to. the; housewife. In  the case of mandatory pension  splitting, this would involve  increasing one type of protection while decreasing another, but it would be the family's decision.  .'���(b)" pie family could be allowed to assign a dollar yalue  to work in the home (perhaps  within some prescribed limits)  which would be over and a-  bove the Wages earned by the  husband, arid contributions  could be made in the name of  they housewife based on this  amount. This ,/\Ypuld permit  the hpusewife to build up her  owrt pension credits without  any decrease in the family  unit's basic protection. However, it Would also; mean that  the family would have to pay  additional contributions to the  plan out of the same level of  'income. 77. 7.Y7 ; YY7'Y 7  Y This approach has a number  of attractions. It would appear  tp7 provide coverage for the  housewife without encroaching upon the'pension credits  and rights of the wage earner.  TREVOR W. NEATE  LARRY E.

M1T4P7  For All Your  Knitting Needs  The Yarn Barn  By A. R. BUCKLEY  If I were asked which was  my favorite group of annuald  I would have to say zinnias.  This may seem strange to  those who rely each year upon  petunias, snapdragons and  other plants to give them  beauty during the season.  . Petunias are the most versatile   and   perhaps   the   most  flamboyant of all annuals, for  their coloring  is either brilliant   or   subtle   according   to  variety, the plants cover a lot  of ground and they can be use-  ed  in   many   different   ways.  They   suffer   from    a .major  drawback  though.  If you are  an    average   home    gardener,  and haven't a fluorescent light  set up or a small greenhouse,  you   must   buy   your   pUantiS  from florists, supermarkets or  garden  centres.   This   can  be  very expensive and not entirely satisfactory for you cannot  always get the kind's you require, for not many retail outlets   ofifer  varieties'  of  above  average quality.  The     discriminating     home  gardener must choose annuals  which may be sown indoors in  April until they germinate and  then transplanted to flats and  placed outside for a week or  so in a cold frame until plant-  Asters fill the bill nicely, but  the bedding kinds last only a  month and the cutting types ,  must be confined to a cutting!  bed. Besides, asters often succumb to aster yellows if they  are not sprayed frequently.  Marigolds might  be  considered for they vvary greatly in  structure of plant and flower.  There are mound types, dwarf  bedding types,  large flowered  one9 and small, button flowered   varieties.   Those   hugging  the ground very  closely may*  be used for  edging. They all,.  have   similar   coloring.   There  are     yellows^,    oranges,      or  brownish-reds, fine colors for  planting   here   and   there  in  patches,  but  not  shades  you,  wish to have all over the garden. That's why I like zinnias.  Zinnias offer a great range  of form,  height and  vary in  color from deep rich reds to  pastel pinks and mauves. They  are no doubt the best all purpose annuals you can grow in  your garden. Use the tall varieties in your perennial. border  to hide the unsightly leaves of  the oriental poppies, or in vacant areas to provide color after  the irises have finished. Masis  them 'in large beds at the cor  ners of lawns, or line them out  grounds  for  smaller  annuals.  The varieties of zinnias.in cat-  as   hedges   to   provide   back-  alogues today are fantastic.

Arbor Day on way back  Coast News, May 8, 1974.     5  The observance of Arbor  Day is coming back as a popular event across Canada. In  many provinces, backed by the  efforts of the provincial forestry associations, Arbor Day  is being revitalized as a day  in the year devoted to tree  planting and community  clean-up.  Arbor Day came into existence in Nebraska where it  -was first developed in 1872 by  J. Sterling Morton. The idea  was picked up across the United States and Canada and  over the years gained popularity until the late 1940 _f  when it disappeared except in  a few regions. Traditionally,  Arbor Day was most popular  in rural areas where-students  and teachers planted trees,  cleaned up around the school  house arid developed special  ceremonies involving planting of trees or shrubs.  In 1974, backed by forestry  associations across Canada,  Aifoor Day is being observed  mainly during National Forest  Week (May 5 - 11). In Ontar  io the Day takes place in the  latter part of April.'  Arbor Day normally features  planting of trees and shrubs  around homes, park_v school  grounds and public places. It  frequently involves special  commemorative ceremonies,  clean-up /campaigns and other  programs designed to improve  the landscape. It is truly a  Do-it-yourself happening.  There is no one calendar day  either in United States or Canada which is set aside as Ar-7  bor Day.  | Log or  styro floats  tol  order,  gangplanks,!

(Mac  kenzie) has announced that  at a meeting in Victoria on  May 1, which included the  Hon. Jack Radford, minister  of recreation and conservation, the Hon. James Lorimer,  minister of municipal-affairs,  representatives from the attorney general's department  and -senior government officials, the result of the investigation by the attorney general's department into the allegations of impropriety in  matters surrounding the Sechelt Recreation Centre were  thoroughly examined and discussed. It was the unanimous  decision of the attorney general's department that there  was insufficient evidence to  support the allegations.  It is Mr. Lockstead1- view  that if the people of the Slum-  shine Coast still wish to pursue the matter of the recreational centre at the Roberto  Creek site, that he would personally support the residents  of the area in this regard.  The attorney-general's letter to Mr. Lockstead follows  'As there were suggestions  of impropriety or illegality regarding the above mentioned  recreation centre, you asked  me to look into the matter. I  accordingly assigned a solicitor from my Department,  Brent Parfitt, to reviefw the  matter based upon any allegations made, written or verbal, concerning the facts such  as location of the recreation  centre, the location in relation  to ownership of lots in the  area, provision of municipal  services andemployment contracts regarding the construction of the arena.

(2) The 10% Penalty if these User Charges are not  paid by June 30, 1974, has been withdrawn.

(3) All Land Charges as appropriate have been included on the Property Tax Notices of the respective Tax Collection Authority according to  the area of jurisdiction.  E. WILLMOTT,  May 3, 1974. Secretary-Treasurer       . -  the facts shows no impropriety  or illegality on behalf of those  involved either in the Sechelt  Council or the Becreation Association. I have reviewed the  matter with. Mr. Parfitt arid  see no reason to disagree with,  his conclusions. ���Alex. Mac-  donald, attorney-general.  Further advice from Victoria has resulted in additions  to the public access clause.  The additions state that The  establishment and continuation of a recreation program!  shall be under the direct control of the Lessor, or a duly  constituted ' Recreation Commission established under the  provisions of section 63!l-of the  Municipal Act.'  It adds further that 'The recreation program so established or amended shall have the  approval of/the Department of  Recrieatiori  and  Conservation.'  Following the report of the  attorney - general's department which showed no impropriety or illegality in the  operations of the Sunshine  Coast Recreation Association,  Henry Hall appeared before  Sechelt's council Wednesday  night of last week and urged  that all past differences to-  forgotten. He is a Vancouver  contractor and member of the  Sunshine Coast Recreation association. He said he would  like to see everyone friendly  again and that there be no  more opposition. Council a-  greed heartily with him.  YOUR  Horoscope  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21 - April 20  'Lady Luck' is back again in  the sign of Aries.

Tom Stockdill and Paul
Stenner, Air Canada pilots
from Vancouver, by way of relieving noii-f lying hour tedium became partners in the
veteran diesel tug named
Swell. (She has repaid its new
owners the major cost of the
deal to date.
This is how Stenner and
Stockdill came to be in Gibsons with their tug on charter
to The Beachcombers for the
filming of a segment of the
current series.
According to the owners, the
principle operating item is
keeping the generous-sized' refrigerator we.ll.'stocked to feed
the continual flow of passengers and crew, mostly from
the flying services.
With Tom as Master and
Paul in the engine room, the
crew is complete/Infrequently
the owners require the services of an extra deckhand,
which more likely than not
turns out to be a female more
decorative than practical.
JThe   Swell,   a   sturdy   old-
"If you did anything around here, I'd replace you!"
timer in West Coast tug boat
operations, has the distinction
of being the second oldest
continuously registered tug on
the marine rolls and carries!
her seniority with an almost
raunchy flair. She was purchased in 1970 from Island
Barge & Tug, Victoria for the
fun of cruising in these waters
While her home port is Victoria, she is berthed for the
most part in Vancouver where
Stockdill, until recently made
good use of her as a floating
home between flights.
The keel of the Swell was
laid shortly after the turn of
the century, commissioned by
the MacGregor family and going into the service of the Victoria Tug. She has total dis-
• placement of 350 ton, 78 ft.
long, 21 ft. beam and was con-,
verted from steam to diesel
in 1955. Over the years, she
has hauled her share of log
booms as well as railroad
barges all the way from Seattle up to Alice Arm at the
head of Observatory Inlet
200 miles north of Rupert. On
other, longer voyages she has
put in at Gold River, coming
through all the stress and
fury of Pacific Coast storms
like a true veteran.
Tom and Paul have kicked
around together over the
years and at one time acquired two World War Two Harvard trainers along with a seaplane. They both declare they
would just as soon be in the
deckhouse of the Swell than
in a D.C. 8 plane.
The Swell is a roomy craft,
cozy and with a well equipped
galley in which both Paul and
Tom are almost fussy iri their
housekeeping.     Up    forward,
five cabins  await   the   guests
who will be making the trip
over to the west coast of Van-
nouver  Island  at  the  end of
May. Later the Swell and its
owners   hope   to   cruise   the
Queen Charlottes and Alaska.
Paul got caught up with the
flying  bug  early   and   at   17
held his pilot's license, originally having no intention of going   through   for   commercial
flying. Tom, on the other hand
a graduate in architecture at
UBC where he gained his B.A.
was to continue his studies at
the   University   of   Manitoba,
but opted out and on obtaining
extra    instruction    in    flying
time  on  multi-engine  jets  at
Winnipeg,   returned   to   Vancouver where he is now employed by Air Canada, flying
TDCS's on the domestic and international service.
On their present assignment
with The Beachcombers, they
are finding out what TV film
making is all about with plenty of variety in working along
with the cast and crew of a
professional  CBC  group.

Dear Mr. Lewis:  As public health nurses we  see the following uses for this  well-needed transportation service:  1. Transporting people to  hospital for physiotherapy, ad-  missions, discharges and X-  ray.  2. Bourne doctors office appointments.  3. Transportation of mothers  and children to baby clinic,  who are isolated in outlying  areas with no cars.  4. iTo encourage participation in group activities of those  without adequate transportation: Old Age Pensioners meetings, 'Parents without {Partners meetings and retarded association activities.  5. To mental health clinic.  6. Blood dbnor and chest X-  ray clinics.  8. Dental clinic appointments, especially to encourage  the uise of the 'three-year old'  public health dental program.  ���4H. COSTERTON,  S. ___:____i__,  b. -T-iso-sr.  Editor: Parents of band students at Elphinstone Secondary School have formed a committee to aid the band. We are  now making an appeal to district organizations and businesses for financial aid to purchase band  instruments.  Most of the instruments are  rented and the school is covering a large deficit each year  in order not to discourage students with high rental fees. At  the present time the monthly  instrument rental is $3H7. If  a down payment of $1500 can  be raised, these instruments  could be purchased for $(1)67  per month over the next three  years.  We feel tax money can be  better spent and that it is in  the interest of the school, organizations and individuals of  the communities of Gibsons  and Sechelt to purchase these  instruments. Therefore, a commitment to purchase has been  made.  If your club or company can  help us in this matter, it would _%''�����  be greatly appreciated: ���El- Im   | All ft  phinstone     Secondary     Band III   Vvlll I  Committee, D.M.

Developers get  Hydro warning  Developers- planning new  subdivisions, shopping centres  or other buildings should contact the local BC/Hydro office at an early stage of planning to minimize difficulties in arranging for electrical  connections.  J. Norman Olsen, general  manager of B.C. Hydro, warned that material supply and  delivery problems, affecting  virtually all types of materials,  make the importance of communication with Hydro more  important than ever.  Mr. Olsen explained that  there are continuing shortages  in such basic commodities as  steel, plastic and wooden poles,  resulting in shortages of many  types of material needed for  electrical installations.  He requested that developers contact the local Hydro office as soon as land assembly  is completed, well before the  development permit is issued,  to let Hydro know the approximate number of lots or size  of building planned.

Ernest Hall  minister of Travel Industry,  has disclosed.  When the summer school,  one of 33 in 12 countries, opened its doors at Keremeos, some  200 miles- east of Vancouver, it  was strictly for boys. Then the  girls got wind of it and made  it known they .wanted a part  of the program. In June, 1971,  the first 35 girls signed up and  their numbers have been increasing ever since, Mr. Hall  said.  Other stories in the summer .  issue are on the adventures of  boys in the Pacific Coast Sea  Cadet Summer Camp, the  Doufchobors, the airtram ride  at Hells* Gate in the Fraaer  Canyon, the rugged Stewart-  Cassiar road, weaving of fine  tapestries at Agassiz, and the  making oif perfume in a story  entitled The Magic of Pym.

Welcome to the  Floorshine Coast  HOW SOW-  JANITOR SERVICE  Specialists in Cleaning  Floor Waxing, Spray  Buffing, Window Cleaning  RUGSHAMP00H6  Who*  SM-1U1,  Gibson- Fresh Strawberries  Our cultivated garden straw  berry is almost as French as  fashion itself. It all began in  the eighteenth  century  when  a French army officer brought  home  some   wild  strawberry  plants   from   South   America.  This    wild    strawberry    was  crossed with a North American variety already being cultivated in French gardens. The  result was the plump, bright,  rich-tasting berry that we enjoy today. By the mid-eight-  een   hundred's,   several   varieties of this famous offspring  were being grown in both Europe and North America.  When buying strawberries  look for dry, bright colored  ones, that are free from white  spots. Whitish berries, picked  when immature, will lack flavor. If the container is stained,  it may indicate the berries are  soft and over-mature and must  be used immediately.  Fresh strawberries do not  store well. If they cannot be  used the day of purchase, emy  pty them onto a -hallow tray  and remove any soft berries.  Then refrigerate them, uncovered, until ready for use. AJt  serving time, wash the berries  quickly under running water  and remove the green  caps.  _trawfberries are, without a  doubt, the queen of all berries.  With their rich color and flavor," they reign supreme in  both simple and elaborate desserts. Here are two delicious  ways of enjoying this year's  fresh  strawberries.
