There are approximately 10,000 residents  on the Sunshine Coast,'so*you  can' see how small a contribution is necessary from all of us  to get*this Community Transportation Service.  Have you seen Snoopy in the  past issues of this newspaper?  He*will introduce Target 10,-  000, bn Feb. 23. This is quite  an undertaking for ovist well-  known friend, ��� but' with, your  help, he will succeed.  The Council was formed in  July, 11973 in order to identify  the health, social, recreational  and educational needs on the  Sunshine Coast, and to co-ordinate all of the groups which  had been "working separately  ��� or alone so that unified! action  could be taken to meet the  needs. Some of the needs identified were: Home-maker service, family counselling, mental health service, crisis lines,  transportation service, intermediate care centre, meals on  wheels.  Among the committees formed was the Information Cen-  ,tre. and Counselling Service  Committee wflii'oh plans to assist families, and the transport  Station committee which plans  to' provide transportation services to the ill and disabled.  The  SOCCHHR is working  toward unifying all fund raising activities in the community in order to avoid countless  1 knocks on your dbor. In tiie  meantime,   the   transportation  'committee has moved in high  gear with Target 10,000.  Valentine party hears pipers  ���� With about 200 persons present, the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Branch  109, entertained- the OAP  Branch 38 at a Valentine Party  in Gibsons Legion Hall Thursday night of last week.  After a smorgasbord dinner,  Jean Milward and her young  dancers gave a variety,of dances   headed!   by   a   Charleston  done by Mrs.  Milward. Next  came' a chorus of Bunnies fea-,  turing  Karen Boothroyd',   Suzanne  Cottrell,   Cheryl Doug- f  las, Sheila -teynolds and Tracy '  Skytte,  followed  by a lively  Tarentella by  Susan  Francis,  Rebecca    Goodwin,    Christine  Irvine and Kelly Red_baw. A  tap  routine depicting English  Bobbies  was done  by  Karen  Boothroyd and Eileen Connor.  Christine Irvine gave a ballet  interpretation of My Funny  Valentine.  Next came the swirl of the  bagpipes as the Sechelt Legion Pipe Band had all toes  tapping to their selections' of  Scottish melodies.  The entertainment concluded with dances by June Mandelkau of the Elizabeth Johnstone School of Dancing. Slie  performed the Sword Dance.  Seanntrubhas, and Irish Jig to  the accompaniment of piper  Tommy Richardson.  The auxiliary thanks all .the  young people and the Seohelt  Pipe Band (for their time and  talents" in helping to make the  evening such a success.  Museum move considered  nun  nan  Ward costs up  Hospital costs are continuing  to rise and costs at St. Mary?is  Hospital in Sechelt are no exception.  As a result it is announced,  with regret, that the private  room rate will be doubled'  from $4 to $8 per day.  Reports that Gibsons council ' is considering turning the  Museum space at the Municipal Hall over to the school  board for office purposes has  released some protests.  One of theni is a letter to the  Coast News by an official and  a member of the Museum Society. The letter reads: ,  * '-'It has come to the attention  of the Museum Society that the  Village Council is going to ask  them to vacate the premises  on the lower level of the municipal building in order to  rent, the said premises.  The display in the museum  is the result of yeans of dedicated work which entailed the  acquisition of priceless artifacts, many of which were donated in trust to the museum  by various of our founding fathers. Included are many records of community organizations.  "During the  tourist  season  we have many visitors' who  find the display most interesting. Many school classes  visit it for educational reasons  during the winter months.  ".  "We have no other space' available and as these premises  wer�� officially opened as a  museum by the Premier of the  province, we feel the community would be breaking a trust  is asked to vacate with no  to many people if the museum  place to go.  ���Norah Hill, .membership  secfy.

A two-horse rider?  Will and Ariel Durant in their soul-searehings from  the pages of their History of Civilization have come to  the conclusion that year by year the role of Western governments in the economy rises while the share of the private sector declines.  While this should not be confined to what-are called  socialist governments, chiefly NDP, there is a fair amount  of the declining! private sector being invaded by our present Liberal government. .  Which brings us around to Premer Barrett's budget  of last week in the provincial legislature, and in view of  the size of the budget to the comment that if the government was to declare a dividend on its surplus it would  make private enterprise look like small fry. However it  does declare a dividend in the form of increasing social  benefts so one should not complain except to wonder  about the effect of socialist government surpluses in the  field of criticism held against private enterprise and its  surpluses. If private enterprise is supposed to get along  with less why should the flow of public money be poured  through socialist channels and demed private enterprise  ��� which is going to be with us for some time yet, hobbled  perhaps but still with us ''���*��� and perhaps increase the  trend of inflation.  It would appear as though our NDP governments  are setting themselves up to be controllers of our economy -at top level. There are dangers in this, dangers which  have brought the end of other such types of government.  Premier Barrett however is striving to straddle two  horses, free enterprise and socialism. Perhaps he has. read  a great deal from the experiences of other governments  which set out on a socialistic path.  His budget is described by him as a Resource Dividend Budget. There is one interesting paragraph which  reads as follows:  'Despite major innovative social policies, ou,r government has been prudent.. .None of the spending programs  proposed "will require an increase in tax rates for the  individual citizens."  This sounds somewhat strange coming from a government which was heir to a tremendous accumulation  of surpluses from the previous Socred regime and the  fact his government also showed a substantial surplus;  He could reduce taxes and, still show a worthwhile surplus. However as we are unable to read what is going on  in his mind perhaps we should be happy that he did not  increase taxation.  Help for householders  If you would like to join an association which will  give you a chance to express your opinion regardng the  municipal affairs of the village of Gibsons, why not show  up at the monthly meeting of the newly formed Gibsons  Householders Association. This meeting will occur Thursday night in the Elementary school; library at 8 p.m.  With the municipal situation showing signs of getting somewhat deeper into your pocketbook it would be  to your satisfaction to know what is going on iri that  respect. So householders, not ratepayers solely, will be  able to use the association meetings as a means of finding  what is going on and if you feel in the mood, blow off a  little steam.  t. ������������'���  5 to 25 years ago  Five Years Ago  The vote to build a 35 bed  addition to the St Maryfs  Hospital resulted in a vote of  1.197 in favor and 64 against.

Crane  Elementary -Librarian  Ever since my appointment  in 1969 as district librarian I  have 'been endeavouring to acquaint the school board with  the inadequacy of school lib-  . rary facilities and services in  . the district and attempting to  persuade them to take positive  steps to remedy the situation.  More than four years later, I  am sorry to say that the progress made in this regard has  been negligible.  - Langdale, Madeira Park and  Roberts Creek Elementary  Schools still have libraries  wihich are not only woefully inadequate with regard to size  but are also available half of  the time anyway because they  double as remedial teaching  areas; there is still no real librarian service for those schools  nor for Pender Harbor Secon4-  dairy school and the one and)  two-roomed schools.  Teacher sponsors, aides and  a  distract librarian wittti responsibilities for the maintenance of collections in smaller,  schools together with responsibility for  the  district's col4*  lection  of  resource  materials  cannot take the place of school  librarians. Without such person  nel, the vigorous .promotion of  good books, the training in research and library skills, and  tlhe  love  of  and  respect  for?  books resulting from a student  librarian -relationship   remain  highly necessary and desirable .  but     unrealised     educational )  goals.  No, Child  should leave  elementary   school   unable   to  use the library to the best of, ,;  his or her ability. Half of 'in^  formation  is  knowing   where *  to find it. >  In support of my contention  that improvements in library  plant facilities and services are  7long overdue in this district, _��'7  quote as I have done in pre^ ,  vious,reports from the Survey '  of B.C. School Libraiti.es conducted orit-behalf of  the department of education in 1061;-  1962 (called the Levirs Report  after its chairman, F.IP. Levirs)  and from other sources:  Recommendation: As a realistic goal, each elementary  school wlith an entitlement of  two teachers should establish  a collection of 1,000 well selected books. Schools with 100  or more pupils should have at  , least .# books per pupil in an  active and up-to-date collection  adding books annually until a-  bout 5,000 volumes are available. Schools with enrollments  over 500 pupils should have a  book collection of 5,000 vo%  umes plus 5 books for each add  itional. pupil over the 500 enrolled. Although below the  standards recommended, this  is a desirable and attainable  goal under, present conditions  of expanding school populations. ..  Insofar as the schools serviced by the district library are  concerned, the budget for  books is quite satisfactory. Progress in the matter of the book  collections for Langdale, Madeira Park and Roberts Creek  Elementary Schools and ' the  circulating collection continues  to be made, although- the annual addition of new books is, to  some extent, offset by the discarding of old and worn out  volumes which it is necessary  to make  The collections for the three  schools mentioned with separate library premises are now  a little over half way toward  the realistic goal of 5,000 volumes for schools enrolling lfoo  or more pupils. (Levirs Report,  1964) Before that goal is achieved, 'however, new library  premises will be needed as the  present facilities are already  crowded insofar as book storage .is concerned and are totally inadequate insofar as pupil accommodation is concerned.  My specific recommendations  with regard to the establishment of good library service'  in this .School District, similar  -to those made in previous  years, are as follows:  Build adequate libraries, at  least < .'1,500,    and    preferably  3,150 square feet in accordance  with the standards of the Canadian School Librarians? Asso-,  ciatioh at .Langdale, Madeira  Park and Roberts Creek Elementary Schools retaining the  rooms which are now pressed  into library service, for remedial teaching, use by public  health personnel and so forth  . and to ease the acute storage'  problems at these, schools.  Abolish the use of libraries  in small schools for remedial  teaching areas or for any purposes other than those of lib-,  rary resource centres.  Retain full-time librarians at  Elphinstone, Gibsons and Sechelt Schools.  Employ one full-time , librarian to serve Langdale, Roberts  Creek and Madeira Park Elementary schools on a six day  cycle, two days'per cycle at  each school.  One half-time" librarian for  piehder Harbor Secondary  school and full-time paid library aides for Pender Harbor,  Elphinstone, Gibsons and Sechelt schools. Three fifths paid  aides .for TLangdale, Roberts  Creek and Madeira Park Eler  mentary schools.  In-service concentration on .  teachers in the effective use of  education programmes for all  school and district resource  centres. As was the case last  year, the major portion of tlhe  audio-visual. budget has been  spent on making additions to  the district's collection of 16m  films. At 57 prints, this represents a respectable stmall collection of films which are read  ily available to teachers, on one  week loan. The most popular  of the District's films, 'I Know  an Old Lady Who Swallowed  a Fly,' has circulated 40 times  since jt was purchased in April  of 1972, and six other titles  have circulated 30 or more  times. The films have undoubtedly -been shown even more ofr.  , ten since a (film sighed but to  orie teacher m&y be used twice  or more by that teacher and  may 'be used by another teacher at the same school, registering only one circulation.  The district library continues to co-ordinatte orders, for  loan fiims from tlhe National  Film Board of Canada, and  borrows films from several  other, sources   a   number   of  which are'outlined'in page one  of this report. The number of  films borrowed through the  library during 1973 epcceeds  500.  Filmstrips continue to be the  most widely used of media, but  the 16mm sound film has taken  over from the phonograph record as the second most widely  used with 276 circulations over  the year, an increase of almost  20% over 1972. Single concept  8mm silent loop films have  shown a marked increase in  use this year having 223 circulations almost double the figure for 1972.  The overall circulation of resource materials has declined  . somewhat over that of 1972. I  believe that the district's collection of resource materials  could be used at least twice'as  much as it is being used at present; but this could only be -  accomplished with fulMime  vigorous promotion which is  impossible while the persons  responsible for the resource  materials must split their time  between them and school. Ii- .  braries..  At this point, I would like  to draw to the attention o_��  tihe trustees the considerable  number of teaching areas in .  the district's schools which  have either no means of darkening for audio-visual present- -  ations or means so inadequate  as to make any such presentation a washout. Over 60% of  the teaching areas in the district -fall into- this category  withfl'7 teaching areas having  no means of darkening whatsoever. Provision of blackout  facilities is hardly a major cost  factor, and I wish to draw the  attention of the board's: planning committee,,to this deplorable siuation for action. Every  teaching area should fee provided with adequate means of  darkening for audio-visual presentations .  For Real Estate on the  Sunshine Coast  K. CROSBY  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

A booster dose was  advised at a 6 - 12 month interval. The course had to' be  modified when given for the ���  first'time'to older children.  "Hon. Dennis Cocke, minister  of health, reports that, the outbreak of diptheria during the  winter of 1972-73 on Vancouver  Island and the Lower Mainland has recurred. So far few  er cases of illness have been  reported.  Since the,.first of the year-  one case has been hospitalized  in Victoria and three healthy  carriers have been identified,  there among-the more than  two hundred contacts examined.  - The major problem since the  beginning of the year has been  in a numlber of isolated centres,  west of Williams Lake. Three -^  apparently unrelated cases of  diphtheria have been reported,  and four .healthy carriers located among their contacts.  -The weather and the distances involved have _made, investigation of this latter outbreak diUficult. The federal  medical services and the provincial public health service  have 'comibinied .forces and  every effort is being made to  contain this incident through1  quarantine ahd treatment measures. '  Mr. Cocke said that although  fully immunized persons have  been fpund to be carrying and  spreading the jdiphtheria bac>- -.  ill_s,.they never become very  ill, and the disease presents  little hazard to them.  At the present time, universal childhood immunization is  the only effective preventive  measure available and Mr.  Cocke again urged all parents,  to see that their children are  fully protected.

Everyone    knows    the  pleasure,of biting into a crisp  Canadian apple or savoring  a morsel of Mom's homemade  apple pie. Not so long ago these  pleasures were enjoyed only  when fresh apples were available in the fall and early winter But today the'apple industry has made it possible to enjoy them all year long. Controlled aitmo-phere storage  keeps apples at the peak of  their 'just-picked? perfection  and processed apple products  are available in many forms.  About one-third of all apples,  /grown    in   Canada    go    into  processing as their distinctive  flavor makes  them  especially  suitable for this purpose.'  When buying processed, apple products, we are assured  of quality because, like the  fresh, fruit, they must undergo  grading according to government regulations. It is wise to  buy the grade mast suited to  the use. You would choose  Canada Fancy applesauce to  serve for dessert but if it is  to be used as an ingredient in  quick bread or muffins where  appearance is not as important  Canada Choice or Canada  Standard would,be a more economical buy.

NOW  WE CAN ARRANGE PAYMENTS  Think of it this way:  Energy saved  j    i-  ��� j *  i  *��  ���"  ~)  r  No one has to tell you that the time has come 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:  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 bet quite adequate. 65�� is also a good  level to leave the house when everyone is  at work or school. Do you want to 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.  Afterwards, check 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:  Whenever you're not using your 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  loss in your home!  FURNACE FILTERS:  Here's an item 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 homa  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. Hydro.  B.C.

How children see events!  The child's yiew of his or  her immediate world sometimes gets into print. Here are  some samples provided by  grades four and five of Roberts Creek Elementary school,  Mrs. E." rnglehart, teacher.  My cat is soft and he is black  grey and white and brown. At  night he sleeps \on my pillow.  He hogs my bed and once he  pushed me off my bed. His  name- is Smokey, he is five  years old and his back is a  foot Wide. He is very nice to  me and I love my cat Smokey.  - Dianne Parry  .,, I know one little crow, who  likes shiny things like a nickel. He takes shiny things right  off the porch and I guess he  hides them somewhere.' He is  as black as coal. I, never got  my nickel back from him. Last  spring he went away with  some other crows and I haven't  seen him since. - 'Peter Sutherland  My geese always used to  tease me. When I sat on the  wall in the back yard, the  geese would sneak up and  pinch me. I always had bruises.  They were almost as bad as my  brother for teasing.  Anyway we ate our geese  for Christmas dinner. My sister looked funny when she  found out our dinner was our  pet geese. She -wanted to go  out for dinner instead but she  didn't get away with it. And  she enjoyed the roast goose  anyway. - Andra MacLean  Laddie is a beautiful dog.  He is my dog. I got him from  my friend Bobbie. Bobbie is  an Indian like me, not a white.  He has lots of dogs and cats.  He found (Laddie crying and  trying to get away from a big  grizzly bear. Bobbie scared the  bear away and' the dog was  glad. Bobbie gave Laddie to  me because him and me are  - friends. - Jackie Dan.''  Rick .Hincks of the Caledonians Soccer  team.was the lucky recipient of a radio  on Sunday before their game.

Coast News, Feb. 20, 1974     5  Co-op warehouse  for Vancouver  Construction of a new FeoV  erated Co-operatives region office and warehouse at Vancouver is scheduled to start soon.  Th   decision   for   construction  was triggered' by rapid growth  in recent years of Britis-ti Columbia's   retail   co-operatives.  The building will be on Anna'-  cis Island, an industrial park  in the Fraiser River, It will cost  about  $2,500,000 and will  replace the present warehouse in  Vancouver and region office in  Burnaby.  To meet growing demands it  has become necessary for Federated to expand existing regional warehouse facilities. It  is likely that steps will be taken this year to expand the Winr  nipeg and Calgary warehouses.  Expansion of the Edmonton,  Regina and Saskatoon warehouses is anticipated in tftie  early future.    '  , Editor: We get many questions about our .activities so I  hope you have space for this,  l���*t____*  We' left Willistms Lake over  a year ago to accept.'a consulting contract in Ottawa. When.  this was completed, I picked  up another contract, helping a-  California firm with their farm  and ranch investments.*  I keep in close touch with  the Progressive Conservative  Party, helping wherever I can.  My good friend the Hon. Alvin  Hamilton, energy critic for the  P.C. party, keeps me abreast  of major issues in Canada.  We are anxiously looking forward to returning home soon;  #to the Cariboo, It was necess-  *ary to seek contracts so far  from home, regardless,.of personal inconveniences in . order  to keep the Pankratz family  afloat. We came to realize that  campaigning takes large personal cash outlays apart from  direct campaign expenses.  Looking back, we feel that  our first political experience  was very worthwhile. We  gained many new friends and  learned to love anew the Cariboo- Chilcotin country. Politically, we made one of the largest percentage gains of any  candidate in all, of Canada  when compared with the 1968  election. Also, we had the privilege of serving our country in  a very real way. Our cam  paign, spearheaded in every  area of Coast Chilcotin by dedicated local people, helped  put the brakes on the 'something for nothing' policy of  the federal government. We  fought very hard to remove the  capital gains taxes on father-  son transfers of ranches and  farms, - a major success! Most  important, our campaign  caught the imagination of the  young people. Most high school  students had never heard a-  foout the good sides of free  enterprise until our campaign  took this message into the  schools. This is so important  because free enterprise is  worth conserving. It is the only  system that encourages Individ  ual initiative and guarantees  personal freedoms.  In closing I want to report  that 1973 has been a good year  for the Pankratz family. The  greatest event occurred in October with the .birth of a lovely  baby girl, a sister for our four  . sons. Financially, our contracts  have given us a new lease on.  our political hopes and ambi-  . tibns.- We can now look seriously ut the .next election,  although the P.Ci nomination  depends on the people of Coast  Chilcotin.  I wish that  1974 will be a  . Year of Achievement for all  the hard working people in  the heartland of B.C., alsq  known as Coast Chilcotin. -  John Pankratz, 1731 S.

This was a joint effort sponsored by the Gibsons Guides,  Brownies, Ranger and local association and the first time  many of the girls, especially  the Brownies, had an actual  hand in running the tea. No  doubt tihere was some confusion in their willingness to  serve but the understanding  patrons surely realized this  was not an easy task.  This  being the first tea of -  this sort,  there  was a  slight  shortage of goodies towards  the end and apologies are extended to anyone who may  have had a bit less than those  who arrived early. It was a  fun tea' and financially rewarding as each group was  able to keep whatever profits  they made. The girls may decide to do it next year, and  hope all will come back again.  Sjpecial thanks go to all workers and a helping hand from  Rev. Jim Williamson.  Winner of the beautiful afghan made by the Rangers  was Cecilia Meda.

Gibsons Gower Point Glad  Tidings Tabernacle inspirational and musical conicerts continue to draw good audiences.  Saturday evening Pastor  Nancy Dykes and her local  congregation took over the  auditorium of Gibsons United  Church hall, to sponsor a  swinging instrumental and  singing group recruited from  the Vancouver Tabernacle.  This musical group of six  talented musicians, electric  guitars, piano and violin, under direction of Bob Hubble,  violinist, formerly of Haney,  along with four singers gave a  tuneful and rousing performance of; old-time religion, western style.  The audience identified itself with the visiting musicians, who maintained their  verve throughout the performance of pentecostal-cxriented  hymns led off by the Old Time  Religion, which quickly warmed the congregation.  Pastor Dykes, characterizing the concert as a free an|d  easjy, western style jubilee^  gave a positive affirmation of  faith and led the singing in  the stirring Love is Flowing  Like a River. Another memb'cj:  of the Vancouver group gave  musical testimony, accompanying himself on his guitar.  Dave Paulson, a familiar figure around Gibsons7for several  years, now a member of the  Vancouver Tabernacle, also  gave testimony at the close of  the concert.

Driving school  plans outlined  Don Montgomery, principal  of ]31phinstone Secondary  school outlined to the school  board at last -week's meeting  the proposal for implementing  a driver training program  sponsored by Gibsons Lions  club.  The propoisal is due to star!  next September. The chief  problem as, he explained' it to  the board, was screening personnel for the in-car training.  The description of. the course  covers a 25 hour theory course  and an 8 to 10 hour in-car  course.  Under this scheme the sponsors    provide    a    three-twee^  training course   at   the  UBC  summer school and the only  cost   involved  would   be  the  teacher's board which he felt  could  be  undertaken by the  Lions  club.  It was also suggested the  course  might, be  extended to  Pender Harbour  Major automobile companies  supply training care on a three  month   basis,    he   explained.  Each three months the course  would obtain a fresh car with  the  other  being.returned to  the company. Mr. Montgomery  said that in the grade 110 clapfe  "there would be about 60 pupils  16 or over who could take advantage' of the course. The applicant would be provided with  a   temporary   license   which  would   become  permanent   if  the applicant passed the course  . Mr. Montgomery was asked  by the boaad to prepare a tentative budget to be presented  at   a  March  meeting  of  the  board with the Lions club.  CROSSWORD PUZZLE  .   ACROSS.  ' 1.

The 1974 provincial budget includes several  major articles with respect to housing. A budget of $72 million  has been established for the Department of Housing, including  $50 million for land assembly and servicing. Ten million dollars  will be provided for the construction of 1600 homes for elderly  citizens and an additional expenditure of $40 million wiil be made  available for first and second mortgages for homes.  RESOURCE DIVIDEND GRANT  A grant to all.residents up to the age of 65 renting living space  will be established. The annual grant will be $30; an increase in  the grant to those residents over 65 will bring their .total annual  Resource Dividend Grant to $80. The grants are provided from  funds collected in the resource areas and are, in fact, a return  of the resource dividends to the people of,British Columbia.  This Resource Grant, for the first time, recognizes renters and  their contribution to school taxes.  ELDERLY CITIZENS  The Homeowner's Grant to those over the age of 65 will be retained at $250. As well, the annual Renter's Grant will be increased  from $50 to $80, and $10 million will be provided to build homes  for the elderly citizens of British Columbia. As well, $15.3 million  will be provided for Mincome [guaranteed minimum income),  which now includes all residents 60 years of age and over, and  the handicapped. An additional $10.5 million wiil be provided for  the funding of the Pharmacare programme already introduced.  Pharmacare will provide free prescription drugs for the elderly  citizens of British Columbia.  In the past year, the provincial cash  surplus has increased more than $45 million while the debt  of the province has. been reduced by over $75 million. The  pride I feel in this budget is not simply the pride of a government dedicated.to the pepple of British Cloumbia, our greatest  asset. It is a pride in the energy of  the people and a desire to ensure  that the people of British Columbia  get a fair return for that energy  expended. For the first time in the  history of British Columbia, budgetary expenditures will exceed $2 billion. These expenditures will be wholly  financed from the ordinary revenue  of this province, revenue deprived  from the resource-rich land, our second greatest asset. We British Columbians are anxious to see our great province grow and  prosper with respect to what nature has endowed us with and  with a sense of obligation to our fellow man. The expenditures  of this province in the coming fiscal year will be made for  people. Alf of the people in British Columbia.  HEALTH AND WELFARE  An additional $87 million over last year Will be provided to upgrade the operation of the province's hospitals, and $10 million  will go to the British Columbia Medical Centre. This year's budget  calls for the establishment of a g uaranteed income plan for farmers  witK an initial capital funding of $10 million and an additional  $10 million will be provided for the development of secondary  industry for agricultural products. Special emphasis, will also be  placed ph jnd_tn��Affairs, to ensure that children will be able to  remain with their.famiiies on. the reserves, and enjoy a higher  standard of living."  MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS ^  As previously announced, the government wHI be assumirjg^he  costs C$15 millionKpf administration of justice in municipa8t_js.  These costs were formerly, borne by local ratepayers. In addftfprjri  the municipal share of welfare costs will be dropped by j&r from  15% to 10%. The "per capita grant to municipalities will be,_i��K  creased by 6%%.  TAXATION  There will be no:increase in general taxes.for the citizens of  British Columbia.fAs well, Jhe 5% sales tax will be removed from  books and sec0ndrhand clothing and a special allocation of  $15 million will bejrriade for trie reduction of education taxes from  resident's property. Each home owner will receive a reduction of  school taxes by no less than $30 up to a maximum of $40. In  addition, the exemption limit for estates under the Succession  Duty Act and the" Probate Fees Act will be increased 1J4 times  from a $2,000 exemption to a $5,000 exemption.  COMMUNITY AFFAIRS  The Community Recreational Facilities fund will be increased by  an additional $10 million to provide additional cost sharing capital  for the construction of community recreational centres. As well,  $5 million will be added to the budgetary funding each, for culture,  physical fitness and amateur sports in the province.  ,  A special allocation will be used for the construction of two new  ferries and one truck carrier, all to be built in British Columbia -  by British Columbia craftsmen. The effect of this $35 million  appropriation will ripple throughout supporting industries as well,  providing manypidditiona! jobs in secondary and tertiary  industries.

Premier and Minister oi Finance.  .!>'  Letters fo Editor  Rigjht Hon. Pierre E. Trudeau,  House of Commons,  Ottawa.  Dear Mr. Trudeau:  Why doesn't this great country of Canada send a delega!^  tion to Great Britain,, France,  Holland and other countries of  Europe and the Middle East to  studfy sewage farms and good  old-fashioned     (primitive, , in  fact!) "put and take" systems?  In Great Britain,  where  I  spent the first 50 years of my  life, sludge, the by-product of  treating sewage until it is clear  water, is a source of revenue  to the cost of maintaining the  sewage farms. For horticulture'  it is as good as farmyard ma->  nitre, easy to handle, as it is  the  consistency of damp  ash  and has no odor. It is delivered  by the half or whole truck-;  load   and   personally   I   have' '  wheeled dozens of barrow loads  and spread it over rose beds  and kitchen vegetable gardens.  I have now been 12' years in  Canada and find the price of  blood and bone fertilizers too  costly.   Wood  ash  I  have  in  Plenty,   and  yearly trips for1  sacks of sheep manure at 80c  per   bag is  exhausting  in  a  small Austin 1300!  Instead of polluting the Fra^  ser River with primary treated  sewage (instead of secondary)  and spoiling the profitable salmon^ runs and devastating water fowl^population, why can't  this method be used here? The  farming area of the Fraser Val  ^^<^ld profit-from sludgj  addled^ barnyard manure, es-  ^ally u% tMs^period of World  shortage of fertilizers   -  AU over "primitive" Europe-  ���where the best and most ffla-  vorsome of vegetables are  grown, who-wins all the prizes  at the small horticultural  shows? These with outhouses v  as a,/ general rule!  Think of these things and  consult witih your health and  agriculture    ministers   before  we^are destroyed by wasteful  pollution. Re-cycling is in its  infancy here. Why not send a  delegation to Finland, now one  of   the   most   self-supporting  ���countries of the world,  who  paid her full war debts to the  U.S.A. There is no waste there  and no pollution either! I have  hved and workedrin that country,    Finland,    four    winters  ,1938/39.71-48/49 and re-visited  it in 1955.  Hoping as a taxpayer and  voter, for more firm and sensible policies in future and a  willingness to learn from our  mutual "Old Country" heritages, instead of always trying to follow U.S.A. policies  ��� DOROTHY GREENE  Editor: -Last month you  printed a letter from us out?-  . lining our concern that the  CBC become a more vital expression of Canadian life and  culture.

In 1958 ten acres  adjoining the park were added  to the park as a centennial project and in 1963 a boundary  adjustment was made resulting in the addition of* an acre  to the park to give the' parte  its present area of 16 acres*.  When Brothers Memorial  Provincial Park was established!, it was outside the boundaries of Gibsons. The village  has since extended its bound'-'  aries to include the park and  consequently it became necessary to transfer jurisdiction  of the park to village authorities. Gibsons will now assume  responsibility for protection,  management, and development  of the park.  aJK^Rr **��'  SUMMER PRINTING  Get Tours Done Now  Coast News Ph. 886-2622  Island population now on increase  A New Book  His second volume of poems and sonnets,  with hand drawn illustrations  This new book is now on sale at the Coast News  and other places on the Sunshine Coast  $1.00 per copy includestax  By mail, add 25jq for handling and mailing  Illustrations were hand drawn by Lloyd and Robert Barnes,  Joka Zuidema and Pam Sommerfield  It was printed by the Coast News  The continuous increase of  population on the islands of  Howe Sound, particularly those  not serviced by B.C.
