Extra rink cost outlined  Nimpkish Cdnstructidn, contractors who built the Sunshine  Coast arena, has asked Sedhelt  council to consider payment of  an additional $16,000 "on com-  piassionate grounds." y  At l<a^\7;yre^'���is^y7'^^h:t,S''  statutory meeting, Arthur Mc-  Guirines, representing7 Nfrnp-  kish, said the coist saving procedures arid the timing of the  construction resulted in financial savings to the owners of  the arena which .were detrimental to the contractor.  McGuinnes contended that  his labor costs had gone up  due to pay increases, extras  that were imcorporated into the  building, and the addition of  seven extra fire doors an!d a  fire escape.  It was reported,that the extra fire doors and the escape  were not incorporated into the  original building plans because  Nimpkish had termed the  building as an "arena" and net  as a ''public assembly'' building as the fire miarshall bad  later classified it.  As an arena the building  needed only five fire doors and  as a public assembly building  it required 12.  Voters to meet  A meeting at which details  of the proposed expansion of  Gibsons village boundaries to  take in Granthams, Sbamees  - Point, Hopkins Landing and  Langdale will be hell. Gibsons  Voters association meets on  Monday January 20 in Gibsons  Elementary  school library.  At this meeting to wihich the  public is invited, Mayor Larry  Labonte and members oficoun-  cil will outline the plan with  the aid of posters bearing explanations of the economics of  the proposal.  Hank .HJaii'l; councils consultant, confirmed that the arena  experienced an overrun of labor to the extent of $18,000,  I He said that $16,000 of that  would be recovered from the  government in grant form and  that Mr. McGuinnes was mor-  . ally entitled to that money.  The matter was taken7 under'  advisement   for   discussion   at.  another meeting.  $13,744,000!  ilding record  Home and commercial construction on the Sunshine Coast  during 1974 hit $13,744,000 ac-.  coirding to the value of building permits issued-by the Regional t^oard, Gibsons and Sechelt 'building departments1.  A Regional board incomplete  figure to Dec. .'18 reached $8,-  846,000 and Fred Reyburn,  building inspector, expected it  would hit the nine million dollar mark.  -    Gibsons total was $3,058,000  and Sechelt $1,836,000.  $52,100 grant  Coast Chilteotin MJP. Jack  Pearsall t advised the Coast  News that a grant of $52,100  will go to the Sechelt Indian  'Band to conduct a feasibility  ' study on a proposal to establish a gravel extraction and  processing facility on the Tso'o-  ahdie Indian Reserve, 30 miles  inll'and on Jeryis'Inlet.  The studjy will consider both  the economic and environmental aspects of the project. If  established*, such a plafnit would  create increased revenue and  employment for members of  the reserve _md other residents  of the surrounding community.  (By DAVID W. FYLES)  As roan'ager of the Hopkins  Landing, Waterworks District, X  wish to express a.few opinions,  on the news story and editorial,  regarding   tflie   proposed   new  "super-village."  I wish particularly to take  exception to the report of the  Consulting engineers which indicates that the water systems  of Granthams, , Soames and  Hopkins are hopelessly inadequate, and that raw sewage is  escaping in all directions. The  Statements made are inaccurate and grossly exaggerate the  problems.  The Hopkins water system  is probably in better condition  both presently and potentially  than Gibsons' system. Over the  past fdw years We have replaced about 75% of our pipes  with fuli sized mains, and) we  have recently purchased a  50,000 gallon storage tank  which will be built in the nea(r  future. Our program over the  past ten years has been one of  continuing maintenance and  improvement.  , Granthams is in the process  of replacing its mains and the  Soames1 system was sextremely  well engineered when it was  put in about 25 years ago.  Langdale is adequately served  by the Regional District.  Another statement has been  made which, indicates the residents of these areas will vote  on .whether they wish to- he  ������ absorbed by tlie yillage-or n$t;'  This is not essentially correct;  in that the residents of .the  Whole area will vote on, the  issue. The proposal is far more  attractive _ to the residents of  Gibsons who will benefit by  the greatly increased tax base,  than to the residents of the  Aid. Robinson  resigns seat  Alderman Winston Robinson  has resigned from Gibsons  council.  In a letter to council Alderman Robinson, wiho recently  had a: kidney transplant- in  Vancouver, Tsaid he had given a  great deal of thought to the  decision Tbiit his health must  come first and the Village must  be allowed; to have a complete  and active mebnber.  He stated he had been impressed with the fact five  people worked together so cooperatively as a team and were  able to accomblish many things  tlhat will create a better  Gibsons.  Mayor Laibohte expressed  his regret in accepting the  ^resignation anl hoped that Mr.  Robinson would be able to  work with council again in the  future. The Mayor said that  Mr. Robinson had done a fine  job and worked hard os an  alderman.  As a result of the resignation a by-election will be held  next month to fill the vacant  seat.  MIGHTY ARMY FILM  A joint meeting, for all denominations, is planned for  7:30 Sunday evening. The film  Like a Mighty Arimy will be  featured at Glad Tidings Taber  nacle, Gibsons. The purpose of  this film is to gain insight into  methods whereby we might im  prove Christian ministry here  ori the Sunshine Coast.  'Light refreshments will fol- ���  levw. All are cordially invjted to  attend. Arrangements for this  service have been made by the  Ministerial committee.  other communities whose taxes  Will be increased. The number  .-of .voters in Gibsons outnumber those in the other areas,  and therefore the issue will be  decided for us. About Vi of the  I   iandbwners   of   Hopkins   will  not be allowed to. vote at aM,  even though they pay over %  7   of the taxes, because they are  i ,r,sOmmer home owners and this  is  not  their permanent  residence. The Coast News story,  editorial and the report treat  the matter  as if  it  were  already .decided.  ; Another point that is some-  ivhat disturbing and makes us  jioubtfur of the village's motives is that an extensive study  would be made regarding the  takeover of these areas without even advising or discussing  the matter with the commun  ity leaders   in   the  areas   involved.  The vil-'age of Gibsons has  little to offer the districts of  Granthams, Soames, Hopkins  and Langdale. Your list of  benefits includes manjy that  these communities already  have and few that they cannot  obtain by their own efforts at  reasonable cost when they are  required.  You may ask what have we  to lose by amalgamation. There  are several things on the debit  side for us and not the least  of these is the loss of community identity and spirit. These  .communities are historically  and geographically separate,  and each is ai good example of  participatory democracy. Community meetings are well attended, residents are willing to  serve as trustees of the waiter-  boards, and the trustees receive good co-operation in their  work. Administration in these  districts is very inexpensive be  cause much of the work is done  voluntarily. All of this will he  lost under the proposed) plan  and I feel that this is progress  in the wrong direction.  It 4s my opinion that the village council should look to the  resources of the village, not  only monetary but human, to  help itself out of its problems.  I feel that the residents should  get behind their council and!  not just sit back and complain  and expect all the amenities to  be handed to them free. But*  please, do not force on us a  program for which we Thave  not asked, and by which : we  stand to lose much.  arg  Activities of individuals described as concerned in affairs  .Connected with education,  chiefly the appointment of a  school district superintendent  to replace Supt. R.IR. Hanna,  Retired, occupied a good portion of last Thursday night's  inaugural school board meeting  in Gibsons.  Trustee Maureen S. Clayton  of &achelt told the^ board these  TOncerned! indiyicltials had; arr7  ' Vf&soiit- :Cre^77=t__x_! Y'Tii^s.y'J  night to ��� dici5uss the possiljil-  ities surrounding the appointment of a successor to the retired superintendent.  ��� Trusteie Cla|ytbn expressed  the feelings of a concerned citizen who was of the opinion  applicants for the ' position  should appear before a public  meeting so that questions could  be put to them as to their qualifications.  This idea was listened to  along with the information  from Supt. Hanna that appli-.  cants for the post are now ^being interviewed in Vancouver  by., diepartment officials and  the board^ will shortly he presented with three or four  names to consider at a future  board meeting.  To straighten out the issue  of superintendent Y appointments it should be noted superintendents are employed  and paid by the department of  education. They are employees  of the department and riot the  school board.'  Entering into the discussion  was a three page letter; from  the district school teachers association, signed by Frank L.  Fuller, president.  The letter stated, that during  the last t)wo or three months  there hais been considerable  discussion among trustees,  teadhers   and   others   in   the  Prescesky chosen  board chairman  Trustee Peter L. Prescesky.  of   Madeira   Park   bas   'been  chosen school board chairman  replacing last year's chairman  Trustee  Mrs.  Agnes Labonte.  This occurred at Thursday  night's inaugral meeting last  week when Mrs. Labonte decided to step down. Mr.  Prescesky was elected by acclamation.  District Supt. R.R. Hanna  thanked Mrs. Labonte for her  many years of service adding  that he had enjoyed working  with her.  community regarding the selection proced|ures for a new  superintendent which have revealed a unprecedented community interest both in the  selection and type of person  selected by the minister. 7^?  The 'letter emjrfhasized "tfaat  it is our professional opinion  a complete list of questions  can be intelligently compiled  after leadership needs have  been ciscertained andi a list of  f0!$elna-.J3m^ - ��� 7'.77. yjyy  [Cpritinuihg, the letter; main-  tiained that such criteria are  essentiad' arid! that input from  all segments of the edtication-'  al community be obtained. The  letter stated the teachers association fully supported the  concept regarding input from  the community which both the  teachers and the board have  put forward in slightly different ways. (  The teachers letter recommended a committee be struck  to include trustees, parents,  STA representatives and students with a department representative as an observer and  a iBrustee as chairman. This  committee would evaluate leadership needs in the district,  determine questions for superintendent applicants and report  a recommendation to the school  ���board,.7;Y ���..��� -.y.-.y^y  Trustee . Joseph Horvath,  Roberts Creek, suggested Xne  '-'con<&rni&yp&^  attend regular board meetings  to learn anything they desire  to know about board operations. None of these concerned  people did, he said.  Trustee John Mcleod said he  had been invited to attend the  Wilson Creek meeting and that  he would go as an obseirver  only.  At  the   close   of   discussion  Supt. Hanna advised the board  to be very careful in what it  did  concerning this  situation.  School buses back in news  School bus transportation  problems are again before the  school board and the reason  this time is the recommendation from Gibsons Elementary  School parents for a total bus  service.  This came from a meeting of  parents with Principal David  Rempel, wiho passed the parents' recommendation over to  the board. In the meantime  Secretalry-Treasurer Roy Mills  has been working on the problem and expects to have a report for a special meeting.  The parents desired a complete pickup of all children.  The present system which is  laid down by departmental officials, will not allow pickups  at less than three miles from  schools.  The board is opposed to  a  Repeal of bylaw asked  Regional Board director Kurt   hne said.  total pickup owing to costs  and the time element involved.  Total pickup would increase  the time of buses on route,  cause them to leafve edrlier  and arrive later thus adding  to transportation costs. This is  not favored by the board  wihose budget is strained already, trustees argued.  Trustee Joseph Horvath was  definitely opposed to a door  to door pickup. Trusitee Celia  Fisher recommended' all alternatives be studied incuding  the transportation of pupils to  a new Sechelt school.    .  At another point the subject  of the new Sechelt school was  touched on lightly when Supt.  R. R. Hanna said that at present the Sechelt land proposed  for a new school is still listed  as Crown land. This is delaying board's plans he said.  Hoehne has asked the board  chairman that bylaw 98, the  director remuneration bylaw  which gave regional board directors an immediate 100%  raise, be repealed.  Hoehne made the motion at  the board's statutory meeting  Thursday night stating that the  increase was incorrectly calculated at 6*6% over nine years.  "I made the calculation and  the increase; is. 9 %. I raise the  question that some directors  voted for it because the 6%%  did not seem excessive," Hoe-  There was some question as  to whether the Chairman had  the authority to comply with  Hoehne's  motion.  West told the board that he  will investigate his legal position in the matter and bring'it  up again at a later meeting;'  Bylaw 98 was given three  readings and final adoption at  the last- board meeting December 19. It raised the director  remuneration from $25 to $50  a meeting and the chairman remuneration from $50 to $100  per meeting. 2      Coost News, Jan. 15, 1975.  expansion     5 to 25  &g0  Subscription Rates: British Columbia $4.50 per year;  $2.50 for six months; Canada except B.C. $5.00 ber year;  United States and Foreign $8.50 per year.

Ron Cruice, Publisher  Fred Cruice, Editor  Second Class Mail Registration number 0794, Return  postage guaranteed  Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons, B.C  Perspective required!  Irvin Lutsky, reporting in the Toronto Globe and  Mail's Report on Business publication quotes Andrew  TKniewasser, president of the Investment Dealers association on a subject of considerable interest.  Speaking to the Canadian Club in Toronto, Mr. Knie-  wasser noted that news, tragedies and frustrations, either  achieved or forecast, may distort our judgment, and  Canadians could lose confidence in business and in themselves.  Mr. Kniewasser maintained there is a good deal of  evidence this process is already well advanced in Canada  as in all other countries. "A number of people are making  a good living by describing the inevitability of the process of doom and by advocating ways and means by  which individuals might protect themselves in the short  run by in fact opting out of society."  He said the technology has been perfected for communicating bad news "achieved or threatened wherever  it happens anywhere in the world instantaneously and  dramatically. We badly need now a new technology  which we might call the technology of the perspective,  to help us balance things up, to refresh our minds of the  pluses, as well as the minuses."  However today's technology of perspective as revealed by our financial institutions and their views of our  present economy do not offer much immediate hope for  a happier mental state just around the corner. For instance, hopes for an upswing in the Canadian economy  for the last quarter of 1974 have dimmed as economic indicators continued to weaken, says the Bank of Montreal  in its January Business Review.  ; .'������������ .���������'���  Retail sales, both of household durables and autos,  dipped after showing strength in 1'ate summer. The housing slow-down continued. And industrial production remained sluggish. A  The Review pointed to "increasing weakness rather  than .. gathering strength" in many- of the sectors that  make up the Canadian economy.  Compounding the unhappy news is an acceleration  in the rate of inflation, currently at about 12 percent.  "Continuation of price inflation at such a rate  is frightening," the Review comments. '"Were it to continue, the purchasing power pf a dollar would be cut in  -half by 1980 and by the year 2000, a dollar would be  worth barely five cents."  Meanwhile, it adds, authorities continued to pursue  monetary policies that are, by and large, expansionary  and federal expenditures are expected to rise a hefty 29  percent this year.  Morbid thoughts  To have the idea of writing an editorial containing  a sense of humor is no simple matter in this Anno Doin-  ani year of 1975. With economics practically strangling  everything else in one's mind, to allow yourself to flutter like a butterfly and settle on something light containing an element of humor is a supreme effort.  Added to that morbid thought you look out of the  window in the hopes somewhere on the opposite shore  of Keats Island lies a subject awaiting you. But the fact  is you cannot see Keats. It is submerged in shall we say  low clouds?  The immediate sight before you is sloshy wet snow  containing the footmarks of a dog who became a pathfinder for other dogs. You get a phone call from Sechelt  from which you learn it rained heavily practically all  night. The prospect facing Gibsons is moist enough to  say you anticipate ram.  There is one thing left and that requires mental effort. You recall a remark by Bob Edwards of the Calgary  Eyeopener who wrote: "If it's all the same to history, it  neecLnot repeat itself any more!" To which we add an  echoing Amen.  On a population increase  basis the Dayton and Knight  report On future water require  ments states that for the 1975  population in the Granthams  to LangcSale region will require  250,000 gallons of water per  day. There would be an increase to'400,000 gpd in 1��80  600,000 in 1985 and 1,200,000  for a 4,000 population 20 years  from now.  Where are two good groundwater wel'l�� in the area drawing from the Langdale Creek  outwas hfan, one in Langdale  and the other in Hopkins Landing. Together they produce  about 400,000 gpd or enough  for the present (1*975) demands  of the whole area plus another  400 people (125 homes), or a  total of 1,500 people.  The outstnding debt against  these two wells is estimated at  $30,000 and $20,000, respectively. The yearly cost of power  and operation and maintenance  at full development wold be  about $3,000 for the Hopkins  We'll and 4,000 for the Langdale  Well.  To provide water for more  than 1,500 people wiH require  the development of a new-  source.  Such a source .could be a  third well in the Langdale  Creek outlwash fan, Landale  Creek itself, other sources external to the area, or combinations.  It is estimated that there is  a good probability of finding  a third well of 200,000 gpd  capacity in the Langdalie area.  Such a well would cost about  $100,000 (allowing for three unsuccessful tries plus about 500  feet of 6-inch connecting pipe)  and would serve 750 people  . jWith water. The yearly cost  of operation and' maintenance  would be about $4,000.  To develop more than three  groundwater wells in the Lang  (Sale Creek outwash fan -would  be progressively more difficult  and expensive. Y.Y  The  second  source  for  the _  area  is   Langdale   Creek.   It's:  flows have1 'been monitored iby  Water Survey of Canada dur~:  ing the three summers of 1965,  !1'966 and 1968. It * is apparent  that Langdale Creek goes almost dry during a dry summer  such as 1|968, at least near the  highlway bridge     where    ttihe  measuring station was located.  There is a rumour that Water  is available above the falls of  Langdale   Creek   even   during  the driest summer but this has  never     been    confirmed     by  measurements.     To     provide  2>00,000 gpd of available water,  the flow above the fails would  have to be 20 to 30 times more  than below the falls, and it is  judged that this is not probable  To get 200,000 gpd peak day  flow  out , of Langdale   Creek  Would require a 10 to 15 million   gallon   reservoir,   Which,,  INVISIBLE SCARECROWS  For centuries, farmers have  tried    to    oirtwit   crop-eating  birds by frigtitening them off  with scarecrows. But the birds  soon defy these sticks,of wood  in old clothes and carry on  feeding on the crops. The latest development in bird control is to treat crops with a  chemical compound which will  repel birds. Agriculture Canada and the Canadian Wildlife  Service are evaluating the effectiveness of the compound  in keeping the birds at a distance.

An intake on Langdiale  Creek above the falls, the neces  sary storage, and the pipe  down to the Hopkins Landing-  Langdale Heights area are estimated in the order of $11,200,  000  Alternativeflly, a larger anl  more distant creek, such as  Dakota, could be developed.  There are no flow measurements available for Dakota  Creek, but by analogy wi1(h  other creeks in the area it is  estimated that the minimum  drought year flow would be  about 400,000 gpd without stor  age or enough for 1,500 people.  The cost to develop Dakota  Creek is estimated at $950,000.  We understand, however, that  Dakotoa Creek is alreaidy fully  licenced1.  From    the above it is concluded:  1. That the existing well's are  ���adequate for 1,500 people which  is the prelicted 5 year (1980)  . population in teh area.  2. That a third well would  provide for a total of .2,250^  people, wihich is the predicted  12 year (1987) population for  .the area.  3. That the cost of developing  Water sources from local  creeks is prohibitively high.  The cost of Regional District  water is today in the order of  $1 per 1,000 gallons delivered  from Chapman Creek to each  individual 'household. With  time, as more consumers use  the Regional District system,  the cost per gallon is likely to  decrease. This has been the  trend in major waterworksv  utilities elsewhere and would  not be unique.  Therefore, once the existing  two local wells, and possibly  the potentially promising third  well, are used to capacity it  will be cheaper and better to  use Regional District water in  preference to local sources to  supioly a population in excess  of 2,250  people  in   the  study  area.'.' -Y;  ..

The Murray exhibit will fun  from Jan. 20 to Feb. 1, Monday  to Saturday, 10 a-m. to 5 p.m.  Complete avoidance of sugar  is impossible because We rely  on it to sweeten and bring out  the flavor of so  many foods.  It plays an important, role in  baking by tenderizing the  gluten fibres in flour and contributing to broWning and  crispness.  '  ^To help your bud'get as well  as your own health, Food Advisory Services, Agriculture  Canada suggest you try these  sugar-saving tips.  Cultivate a taste for less  sweet foods for dessert. Serve  fresh, frozen, canned or dried  fruits. You might try apples or  pears on a cheese tray.  Select recipes which give the  highest yield for the smallest  amount of sugar. For example,  prepare specialty yeast breads  and quick breads wihich use  less sugar than cakes and cook  ies.  Make cakes without frosting.  If you must have a frosted  cake, don't frost the sides. Dollops of "flavored whipped topping or a streusel type crumb  topping of butter, sweet  crumbs and cinnamon may add  the finishing touch to many  cakes.  Figure out the cost of making a baked product at home.  Compare with the price of a  similar convenience product. In  some cases, the convenience  food may be-the better buy.  Watch where the sugar goes  in your home, on cereals,, in  tea or coffee. Cut down where  it is needed least.  Make upside-down cakes  which require no frosting and  use less sugar than most cakes.  Try a custard filling or chopped dried fruits and nuts1 moist  ened with honey or corn syrup  for layer cakes.  Remove two tablespoons  from each cup of sugar in desserts. It shouldn't affect the  product.  Use leftover syrup from canned fruit as part of the sweetener and liquid in sauces and  cold drinks.  Use frozen fruits which have  added sugar in shortcakes, pies  and puddings-.  Serve hot desserts, since  they seem sweeter than cold  ones.  Price reduced  Kelly and: Sharpe Disposal  Services have decided) that  their recent bid to council for  garbage collection was too high  They had recently notified  jcouncil that garbage collection  rates would increase from $67  to $90 per month.  "We have decided the bid recently given to you was not  suitable. So the new price will  be $75 per month," they informed council.  The matter will be further  discussed in a finance committee meeting but council indicated that it would probably  acceipt the revised bid.  The Kelly and Sharpe contract had provided for regular  and container pick-ups at the  village office, parks, and the  wharf.  Highway land  setbacks eased  Graham Lea, minister of  provincial highways, announced new building setback re-  (gulations for property adjoining all highways and roads in  unorganized territory.  Lea said, "The old regulation  had a blanket requirement that  no building was allowed with  in 25 feet of the highway right  of-way boundary. This is now  reduced to 15 feet except in  those cases "where a lane or  alley proviles secondary access  to the property, in which case  the setback is 10 feet. This will ^  give a property owner' greater  flexibility in locating buildings  on his property."  The minister said these are  regulations under the Highiway  Act and operate in conjunction  with municipal and regional  district by-laws.  , A new clause also controls  the height of hedges, fences, or  other objects on the corners of  lots at an intersection. This* is  a saftey measure to ensure adequate vision at intersections.  SAFE LIVESTOCK FEED  With feed costs rising, there  is new interest in feeding  waste materials to Canadian  livestock. Leftovers from bakeries, wastes from industrial  kitchen, effluents from pulp  and paper mills, animal manure and by-products of industrial refining are being suggested for processing as ingredients in livestock feeds. Agriculture Canada's feed section  is studying the safety and usefulness of these materials.  7.  *f<*fLl  - ^  The secret of Armstrong Solarian is its exclusive  Mirabond��� Wear Surface.

West continues as chairman  Frank West' was re-elected  chairman of the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board at the  statuatory meeting in Sechelt  Thursday night.   ..."������  ���West, who will be serving  his third term as chairmen,  said that during the last year  the board had both successes .  and failures but that it was  necessary to go on and cooperate to serve the taxpayer.  West critized the response  of the press and the public to  the board's recently released  1975 provisional budget and re  quested that everyone take a  more sober and realistic view;  "Unfortunately inflation  didn't stop at Langdale or  Earl's Cove", West said.  He also .statel.it wasn't realistic to compare last year's  bud get to this year because it  iwoiiildi be comporting apples  and oranges. "It doesn't. take  a financial wizard to come up  with a large percentage increase."  "I feel responsible as chairman of the finance committee  arid when I hear all the public  talk about us taxing people  out of house and home ... why  Should the ���.���regional- district be  the only government who can  manage on 1974 costs when the  cost of living had gone up 30;  to 40 per cent."  West aso paid tribute to  those directors that left the  board in 1974, Lome Wolverton,  Jim Tyner, Charles Gooding,  Rita Relf, and Harry-Almond,  and   thanked   them  for   their  service.  Heads of committees appointed by Chairman West  Were as follows: Planning  policy, Frank West; planning  detail, Norm Watson; water,  Peter Hoemberg; building, Don  YPenson; waste disposal, Tim  Frizzell; cemetery, Jim Ironside; office procedure and  voters lists, John MdNiven;  finance, Frank West.

I  am sure he will! be galdto hear  of your willingness tohelpY  Up until now we have not  mentioned how we expected to  finsince the building, because  we were expecting government  grants from several quarters.  One of those grants has definitely been turned down, and  we have been told not to count  on one other. We will, however, continue to pursue any  other grants or donations that  may become available. We'expect the cost of the building,  with clear span and concrete  floor included, to be $150,000,  net of donated labor and materials. Two big expenses included in that price are $41,200  . for a 50 horsepower refrigerta-  tion pl'ant, and $24,000 for a  concrete^ floor.  We have fund- arranged  from three sources: a recreation grant from Victoria of  $50,000, debenture sales of  $30,000; a bank loan for $30,000  and income from clearing the  property of $5,000; a total of  $115,000. That leaves us $35,000  short of our goal.'  As you can see, the concrete  floor may have to go if further local or government support is not forthcoming. This  effectively eliminates the multi  purpose use of the building.  . Since the floor goes iri last, iwe  will leave such a decision until the final minutes, and hope  that the- funds will turn up  from somewhere.  System wrong,  trustee thinks  School Trustee John J.

Bozo big hit  in Grizzly film  The Sun International production of "The Life and Times  of Grizzly Adams" starts' a  limited engagement at the Twilight Theatre in Gibsons on  Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 20  and 21. The feature stars Dan  Haggerty who portrays a historical figure of the American  frontier, James "Grizzly" Adams. One of the more impor- ^  tant performances rendered in."  the film is by a 450 pound sil-  vertipped grizzly named Bozo.  Because Bozo's performance  had to express the affinity.that  Adatms held for the animals he  encountered in the mountains,  the responsibility for Bozo's  portion of the script fell on her  trainer, Terry Rowland .from  the Olympic Game Farm in  Sequiha, Washington.  In a scene from the film,  Bozo is shown rescuing Adams  who had been struck and pinned by a tree he was chopping.  The assistants and trainers  who were ready.to help Bozo  roll the tree from the actor's  leg were not even needed as  Bozo performed the action perfectly in the first take.  Bozo's previous screen ere- .  dits include King of the Grizzlies and numerous television  commercials. Off location, Bozo's time is spent in entertaining occasional visitors at  the Olympic Game Farm, and  learning new ' scripts for the  opportunity to be the animal  lead in another picture. Her  acting abilities make her very  useful to the producers of  films like The Life and Times  of GrizzKy Adams.  BLOOD TYPING FOB COWS  The demand for determining the parentage of cattle is  increasing in Canada. Agriculture Canada's Animal Diseases Research Institute tests for  40 factors on the cow's blood  cells, and for five proteins  and enzymes in the blood. Because no two cows have the  same blood type, researchers  use the system of exclusion  to determine the animal's parentage.

This is a far superior method of locating and identifying  mineral claims. It should lead to increased discoveries and developments,  while virtually eliminating conflicting claims.  TIME OPT  Before this; can happen,  records must be revised and  maps must be  prepared; using the Modified (arid System. And  care must be taken that the new system and  the present system are not confused. So, there  will be a moratorium beteween January 15  and February 28 on daim staking in British  Columbia. Remember, no claim staking during this six-week period.  For a full report  on innovations in B.C. mining, read "There  Have Been Some Changes."

Seals used
Over 5,000,000 Canadian
homes received Christmas
Seals at the beginning of the
holiday season, 640,000 of those
in British Columbia. Contributions from the province total
$423,889, with $2,368 of that
coming from the Sunshine
Coast area. This figure represents approximately 75% of
the Sunshine Coast area target
of $3,200.
Christmas Seal catatipaign coordinator Ed MclLachlan, reports a slight increase in contributions over this same period last year, and it is hopeful
the British Columbia target of
$500,000 will be met in order
to allow the British Columbia
Tuberculosis - Christmas Seal
Society to meet medical research and construction assistance commitments for the upcoming year.
