B.C.  $20 water tax boost  forecast for village  10c per copy  Voiume 27  Numiber 48, December lit 1974.  A $20 increase to Gibsons water rates bringing the rate up  to $65 for ,next year-is forecast in the budget now before  Gibsons council.  Reason for the increase is  to,help finance the improvements required to a system  which has not had much done  to. it over the last few years  in' spite of increasing demands.  Aid. Kurt Hoehne, chairman  of the finance arid-water com-  <mittee in preparing the provisional budget explained that  to produce a provisional budget for this village  for  1973  fice not allowing enough time  Ambiguous wording in an  to work out a new taxation act  which would be workable. The  only increase in the taxation  base are the new assessments  on 1973 local construction,  which would not affect the  ���base to a great extent.  2. The village mill rate has  only a slim margin to be increased to 30 mills, and applied  to last year's base would produce the same revenue as last,  year.- ��  3. We are caught in the up^  ward trend of inflation to the  which should come as close as     degree that, the revenue dollar  possible   to   the final   budget  is   almost   an   insurmountable  task. Consider these facts:  these facts:  1. The assessment base for  taxation has not been changed  by Victoria because of pressures from, the Assessor's of-  next year does" not cover as  many expenditures as this  year. Labor, material and services  all keep going up.  4. "Water being our most essential service to the people  in the village, we are going  ahead  with  our development  Analyst's report ambiguous  Ambiguous   wording - in   an     floor   and  that  Rod  Wheeler  analyst's report proved .to be - had picked it up and! given it  an 11th hour- benediction for  a former Sechelt man in a trial  that ended close to midnight  in provincial court Thursday.  Clint Booth, 23, of Vancouver, -was found not guilty by  Judge   J.   S.   P.   Johnson on  charges of trafficking in LSD  because the wording in an an-  . alyst's report, made it...uncer-,  ' Jfein if the substance "sold by  Booth    to    undercover   police  agents was LSD.  RCMP Csts. D. Surtees and  J. B. Sailer testified \they purchased- two small pieces of  blotter each containing a  "creamy spot" from the accused Booth in the Peninstila Hotel, Dec 15, 1973.  Surtees told the court he had  entered the beer parlor of the  hotel dressed in blue jeans, a  corduroy shirt, and a lumber  type jacket and noticed Booth  sitting near the pool table. Stir-  tees exchanged greetings with  Booth and invited him over to  his table.  After initial conversation.  Surtees told the court that  Booth had said: "Hey, you  should have been here last  night. Had some ACapulco  gold.?'-,  . Surtees testified Booth then  had a conversation with his  partner, Cst. Sailer, x which he  could not overhear.  "Sailer then leaned over, to  me and asked if I wanted to  buy some; acid." Surtees said, .  "and I asked what kind and  how much." The, price was $2  a blotter so Sailer gave the accused ijwo $2 bills and. the accused left the beer parlor. Sailer then went to buy some wine.  "At 10 p.m. Booth returned  and passed me a small white,  almost transparent envelope  under the table," Surtees told  the court. "I then entered into  conversation with him (Booth)  and he said: 'Two hits of blotter-��� good stuff, you gonna  try it now?'  "No, different stuff affects  different guys in different  ways," Surtees said.  "It's good stuff ��� no problem. I did one the other day  and still drank six beer," Booth  had stated, according to the  witness. Booth then left the  table and told Surtees; "I've  got to take off, don't forget to  tell your friend that I gave you  the stuff."  In cross-examining, defence  for the accused, Ken Steinberg  suggested to Surtees that the  envelope   had   fallen   on   the  to Surtees. It was earlier revealed that Wheeler assisted in  drug convictions by introducing the undercover agents to  the  "right people."  Surtees stated that he could  not remember the, envelope  falling on the floor and Steinberg suggested that after 8 to  10 beers he couldn't,:r^3^ re^^the. w-ater. committee,   at-f___  plan which was, presented, to  the  village  by  the  engineers, l:  Dayton ahd Knight, in 1965. lair  order to do this we hasv;e raLgj. -  ed our water rate in 1974  $15 and started to^upgrgde&oi  distribution system within"  village.

The decision to place \  this  order for pipes  and fit-  ".  tinigs   now instead   of  Jan. .1   >  will save this village approxi-   \  mately  $6,000   because   of   a  .'  price  increase  on  January   1. - v  Our program also includes the* ?,  upgrading of our reservoirs on  Reed Road and a new 50,000  gallon reservoir at the 700 foot  level to increase the pressure  so badly needed at the upper  village residency.  You the householder and taxpayer, are in need off a more  adequate supply of water. We  are simply making an effort  to get it to you and in doing  so it will cost you more tax1  dollars. There are, no easy sol_.  utions to the many problems  encountered arid anybody  would be most welcome if he  could provide us with one.  Aid. Hoehne, as ohairtnan of ~  Holiday deadline!

"Eight to ten beers may affect your ability to function  as a police officer. You are giving evidence that seriously affects an individual and I want  to knojw the circumstances,"  Steinberg told Surtees.  Both Surtees and Sailer testified that after leaving the  Peninsula Hotel they went to  Wakefield Inn, West Sechelt,  and then back to the Blue Sky  motel to write up their reports.  They told the court they placed the envelope containing the  blotters obtained from Booth  in a clean white envelope and  later handed it over to iSlar-  gent Bill Saunders, then of the  Sechelt detachment, who subsequently sent it to Vancouver  for analysis.  In summing up his defense,  Steinberg said the two pieces  of blotter paper had not been  returned from the analyst and  that it was not certain^ if Tthbise  were the two pieces of paper  that Mr. Booth handled. "It  could have been the envelope  or other pieces of paper that  he analyzed," Steinberg told  the judge. "The wording on the  certificate of analysis is so  ambiguous, I suggest the court  cannot rely on this certificate  to sustain conviction.'*  Crowln prosecutor Barry  Mah Ming argued that the  meaning on the certificate -Was  wordy but quite clear in meaning that the blotters in ques-.  tion had been analyzed and not  the envelope. .  In handing down his decision  Judge Johnson said that the  evidence as far as the facts  are concerned was relatively  simple. "The whole case turns  on the validity of the certifir  cate of analysis. It is not certain from what paper the substance analyzed as LSD was  obtained arid it is uncertain  jf the substance sold, was, in  fact,, DSD.' I find that the  crown has not proven the cer- -  tifioate of analysis and find  the accused not guilty."  'Prosecutor Barry Mah Ming  said he will appeal the decision. .  Dec. 3 'meeting, said it was necessary to increase the rate tb  $65 per year due to increased  costs. This rate is still far below other areas.  Hoehne said that .water* development will go ahead as  planned. This includes the construction of a 50,000 gallon  storage reservoir on Reed Rd.,  3,800 feet of pipe for North  Rd., 8,000 feet for Reed Rd.,  1,400 for Headlands, and 600  for Franklin and. Gower Point.  He added that much of the  materials will be ordered now  because council will have to  pay $6,000 more for the same  materials after Jan. 1.  $11,416,000!  Sunshine Coast building permit values up to the end of  November reached $11,416,000.  This figure is ��� based on" rec-  ords maintained by the-Region-  al District board and Sechelt  and Gibsons vilages.  The Regional board's, total  to Nov. 30 was $6,522,700. That  for Sechelt was $1,836,000 and  for Gibsons $3,058,000.  Figures for the month are  $399,000 for the Regional board  $82,000 fo Sechelt and $214,000  for Gibsons..In each case more  than 75% of the amount of  money for building goes into  home construction.   ���  Skaters alert  A group of people in Gibsons have formed an interim  committee with the idea of  building a skating arena for  Gibsons and area.  A spokesman for the group  said that the idea has already  received a lot of enthusiasm  and the village has appropriate recreational land set aside  next tb the curling rink now  under construction.

'* -i'S-*;v��i   > ?��� 7-.^_!f:��. jr V^ -i  higher in January  Jack Pearsall, member ^ of  Parliament for Coast Chilcotin, has advised that the basic  Old Age Security pension will  rise in January to $120.06 from  the present $117.02.  Guaranteed Income Supplement payments will also rise in  varying amounts up to a maximum for a single person of  $84.21 from the current $82.08.  This single status also applies  to a married person whose  spouse is not a pensioner.  The maximum Supplement  for a married couple will increase to $74.79 from $72.89.  If the cost of living continues to rise the pension and supplement will continue to be  adjusted every quarter, that is  in January, April, July and  October. If the cost-of-living  drops, or remains the s'ame,  there will not be any reduction  in the Guaranteed Income Sup-  New restaurant  before council  Approval in principle has  been given by Sechelt council  for a * combination confectionery store and Chinese restaurant on Wharf Street in premises formerly occupied by Twin  Creek Building Supplies.  . Mr. W. Wong of Vancouver  told council last week he plans  to renovate arid add on to the  building to house a small confectionery and a 100 seat restaurant, featuring Chinese and  western foods.  Council expressed concern  over the availability of parking  space but Len Van Egmond,  representing Mr. Wong, assured council that plenty of space  was available.  Aid. Norm Watson, acting  mayor in the absence of Harold Nelson, said that the property would have to be ire^  zoned from industrial to com-'  mercxal.  plement or in the Old Age Security pension.  Pensioners will be advised  of the changes in the amounts  ��� being paid.  Mr. Pearsall also advised of  a 10.4 percent rise in the Canada Pension Plan. The increase  reflects the rise in cost of living in the last year and will  apiply to all persons in receipt  of Canada Pension Plan benefits or pensions as of December 31, 1974. The increase will  be reflected in the January  cheques.

Gibsons taxes not higli  Officials handling municipal and school board financial problems have no easy task under the present inflationary system of economics with which we live. They  are in the position of operating under) provincial governmentcontrol which sets limitations on what they can  or cannot do.  Both municipalities and school boards have budget  limitations within which they must operate, sometimes  with school boa_d over-budgetary amounts having to be  ^provided by higher authorities. School boards have this  .advantage over nauiiicipalities.  The Sunshine Coast for years was able to operate on  minimum budgets due to a limited number of authorities with taxing capacity. With the advent of Regional  District Boards this picture changed. Regional boards are  also set up to look after municipal ahd hospital district  bulk financing. ��� '  Such organization is obviously necessary. Naturally it leads to increased taxation:. Yet on a population basis the Sunshine Coast is not as heavily taxed as are  many other areas. With increased population and struc-  ���tures both residential and commercial, necessary improvements to one's -way of life have become necessary.  To bring this down to Gibsons requires a short step  because Gibsons municipality over the last five years has  reached proportions which have called for a higher standard of municipal requirements such as zoning, water and  sewers. Examination of tax rates in 135 areas shows  that Gibsons is among the lowest ten tax rates in the  province. This is an actual fact, not dreamed up, and  comes- from government records.  So if one feels an additional $20 on the water bill is  too much, stop and consider what these services are doing to the value of property within the district. Sellers  of property make no bones about asking the dollar limit  on their Shangri-Las. Yet when it comes to having to pay  for the means of making their property as valuable as  they contend it is ��� that is another question. The additional $20 on water bills will hit those people living close  to their incomes or savings. However taxpayers have  been warned several times the w&ter tax would be in-;  creased. ,  With building figures for this year creating a record  in both Gibsons and the entire * Regional Distirct, officials striving to maintain the required services for present and added construction do not have the most welcome type of job. They were elected to do a job and that  is what they are striving to do!  A brief upward look!  If Jupiter were to speak, said the ancient Cicero, it  would be in language like Plato's. And one of the things  Plato said was that "astronomy compels the soul to look  upwards and leads us from this word to another."'  Today Jupiter is not a god but a planet, and if it  were to speak it might marvel at how far we've gone  out of this world. We peer at Jupiter with, our TV eye  and send our space proxy on a five-year trip to Saturn  as if it were a stroll to the corner candy store. Well,  not exactly. But we do take rather easily in our stride  achievements that might have  sent Plato into a whole  new series of dialogues. . . ...  v Would 'he say that 'such achievements have compelled us to look upward, at least with a sense of wonder?  Or would he be amazed at how quickly we turn b_ck to  earthbound business as usual? -  V ���- Christian Science Monitor  5 to 25 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  In Regional Board elections  Granthams voted for street  lights 34-0 and.

Sincere .thanks go to the  Legion, its Legion Ladies  kitchen staff, who provided  a delicious turkey dinner, in-  eluding John Wilson, (whom  I presurne to be the chef, Also  the ladies I believe who  set up the banquet hall so  beautifully.  To wives of the Lions Club,  / whom I understand got stuck  with the dish washing.  To Larjfcr Boyd who coordinated   the   whole   affair.  To the pianist Helen Sinclair  who    so    ably    accompanied.  Charlie Jones in his rendition  - of old favorite songs, much en-  . joyed by  all.  To June Mandelkau for her  excellent rendition.of Scottish  and Irish dances, in spite of  handicaps.  To the square dance group  from Sechelt.  To the Lions men who so  capably served us the delightful dinner and for their more  than generous bar service.  To the twin , accordionists  who provided excellent music,  both for dancing and easy  listening.  To the team who provided  one of the highlights of the  evening with their comedy skit  the Beauty Contest, too hilarious to describe.  To John Harvey for his don-  tion of flowers and poinset-  tias for table d__oratipn. If I  have omitted any one it is not  with intent and my sincere ���  apology for Yahy oimssidns.  My head is crammed so full of  memory of this beautiful evening that it is hard to remember  it all.  Another   personal   highlight  occurred when I was called to  the front by Ed Connor, when  he presented me with a lovely  pair of blue cut  glass Candy  dishes and a sum of money, donated by friends who had accompanied us to Hawaii. This  was a total surprise and certainly   not   necessary   as  any  small thing we had done was  only what  we  wanted  to  do  ���and took much pleasure in doings We got as much pleasure  from it as they did.  My wife Evelyn and I derived particular pleasure from  the evening as, due to my decision to retire after four years  as president of Br. 38, OAIPO,  it was our last social function  in this capacity, as the new  president, Jim Holt and new  executive will be installed at  the annual meeting Jan. 20.  As I had riot made my decision  to retire When we  set  this evening up, it was cer-  \tainiy not planned to be, but  my wife and I personally look  on this evening to a grand finale to devoting four years of  our time unreservedly ��� to solving problems and providing as  much pleasure as possible to  all pensioners.  So "speaking for, the members  of our group, all other pensioners 'Who attended, and. all other  pensioners whdwere unable to  attend to help its enjoy a glorious evening, my wife and I  add our sincere thanks to all  concerned.

YULETIDE SHORTBREAD  For centuries, shortbread has  been    associated     with     the  Christmas and the New Year  seasons.  Shortbread is probably a  descendant of the Scottish Yule Bannock (an oatmeal cake)  which used to be baked on  Ohristmas eve in honor of the  new-born Child The round  cake bore the sign of the cross.  This explains why, so many  rounds of shortbread made today are marked into quarters.

Hanna who retires at the end  of this; year is now a problem  which has been wid'ened'to include three each of board members, school teachers and the  public.  The issue came before last  week's meeting of the school  board when a letter requested  from D. I. Reid, Powell River  school board secretary-treasurer in which he outlined what  occurred in the recent Powell  River situation.  '���; 'His letter informed the board  that the Powell River superintendent H. C. Ferguson retired  as the result of illness. He  wrote that the board then received a request YErbm the  Powell River Teachers Association asking that represeritar  tion from the association be  taken into account in the selection of a ne<w superintendent.  A similar request was received from the Public Assembly  for Community Education, a  local group established during  the former commissioner on  education's involvement in the  Powell River education, system.  Rather . than receive direct  representations from these two  groups, the letter continues, the  board established ah educational advisory committee consisting of three representatives  from the Teachers Association,  three representatives of PACE,  and three student representatives. The first task given to  this committee was to report  on. the quality of educational  leadership , the community  would like to see in a new  district superintendent of  schools. The committee developed a set of criteria which  Was taken into consideration  before the board made its final decision. He pointed i out  that the entire procedure as  far as interviewing candidates  and final selection was concerned remained solely iwithin  the province of the board.  Mr. Hanna explained that  names of available district superintendents will come from  Victoria and from these the  choice Will be made subject to  Victoria officials' approval.  The department expects the  board will assume the responsibility of selection, but the  question to seek adiyice from  interested, groups or individu-,  als as to the type of philosof-  phy the new district superintendent of schools should hold  on various mattersof importance is, of course, the board's  prerogative. The department  shares with the board the wish  to get the best available person for the job.  Pearsall bucks  redistribution  B.C. members of parliament  dug their heels in and balked  at the suggested redistribution  ; of seats on a provincial basis  [ for the next election.  ;      Led by Coast Chilcotin MP  ; Jack Pearsall,  former returning officer for the riding, the  group recommended changes to  bring British  Columbia extra  seats.  7 7  Pearsall drafted two amend-  7 ments that would move British'  ; C^ltJrabia from a medium pro-  f vince along with Alberta, to a  large province status with Ontario and Quebec. This resulted  in another seat for B.C.  < v   The standing ��� committee on  ^Privilege's   ahd   Elections,   of  7 which Pearsall is  a  member,  [.acceptedboth amendments and  > the;Bill has now passed second  reading in the House of Com-  ?  mons.        .

Alderman Dennis Shuttle-  worth thinks so. At last week's  council meeting Mr. Shuttle-  worth expressed his concern  over a "philosophical study Of  loneliness" v. and told council  that it involved not money but  kindness.  "I don't mean just elderly  people," said Shuttleworth, "it  is a number one social problem  from age 5 to 90." And Mr.  Shuttleworth- wanted to know  if anything had ever been done  about it.  "I admit it's a real problem,"  said Alderman  Norm Watson;  "but how do you legislate  agaj'nst something like that?"  ,  Watson, then referred Shut-  ding that he had some pretty  ��� strong   reservationls    af   first  but that it's now turning into  a fairly reasonable thing.  Mr. Shuttleworth thought it  would be a good idea if the  village was connected with the  Human Resources Society.  "But the people who need it  most are so damn proud," he  said. ���  With a further discussion  v about lonely widows and "disoriented children" Alderman  Shuttleworth wondered i f  council was not 'stepping on  the  churches'   toes.  1   bedroom   trailer,  fully  nished.

(Hal) Hammond, the commun- ,  ity has lost a good man,  and  also a pioneer of the Coast.  His grandparents, being United Empire Loyalists, moved  to Canada in 1776.  He was born in 1897 in Lily-  vale on the Nimpkish River,  Vancouver Island.  The family sailed the coast  from Vancouver -to Alaska,  freighting supplies on the 78  ft. schooner, the Crusader,  which his father had built.  They bought land, at Gillies  Bay, Texada Island, where the  house they built is still in use.  but in 1902 they moved to Hidden Basin on Nelson Island,  where they lived for the next  17 years.  Times were hard, there was  no school, and at 13 years of  . age he was firing a steam donkey for the Rat Portage Logging camp to supplement the  family income.  He next worked as boom-  man, and at the age of 15 was  head boom man over a crew  of 14 men. Y  He was working for the  quarry on Hardy Island with  his boat the Lizzie, when his  father, injured while hand logging in Jervis Inlet, wasv told  he must go to a hotter climate  for a chance, to recover.  He left for New Zealand,  never to return.  Hal was now the sole support of his mother and eight  younger sisters and one brother. When the war started, he  joined the army, but the army  decided he was of more value  supporting his family, and he  was put on reserve status.  He got a job as apprentice  at the Wallace Shipyards at  North Vancouver. By the end  of the war he was a master,  shipwright in charge of a crew  of workers, ability and the exigencies   of   wartime   having  Wharf problems discussed  R. H.  (HAL) HAMMOND  telescoped  the   usual  training  time.  His work was on the five  masted motor sailing ships be-.  ing built for the war, and he  was working ori the Mabel  Brown when that ill-fated ship  was finally launched, on the  third attempt.  At the war's end, he went  logging agahv for Bloedel,  Stewart and Welch at Union  Bay, and at Myrtle Point near  Powell River.  He worked at high rigging,  bridge building for the logging  railroad, and head boom man.  Around 1920, he wlas log  burling champion of the coast  for four years, at a time when  that sport was taken seriously. He retired undefeated.  From this period on, he always owned a boat. His first,  the Lizzie, Was reputed to have  been the first gas boat on the  coast.  He built the first schoolhouse  , on  Nelson  Island,  though   he  never attended one himself. At  one time his family were the  only children in the school, and  ...Gibsons Alderman Stuart  Metclafe stressed at last  week's council meeting that  electrical outlets on the govern  ment wharf are potentially  dangerous) and that council  has repeatedly pressured the  minister of transport to alleviate the situation:  Problems involving t he  wharf iwere earlier brought to  council's attention at a public  meeting and one of the most  Few view Triumph film  Very few people availed  themselves of the opportunity  to see Triumph of the Will,  bu those who did found the  experience worthwhile: Citizen  Kane iwas also a significant  film, and I found several parts  of it reminding me photographically of Last Year in  Marienbad wihich the Film Society screened two years, ago.  Unfortunately, there are no 35  mm. prints of Citizen Kane  in Canada, and while the _6  mm. print we screened was  quite acceptable, there was  some graininess, and the sound  track was bad in parts.  Tonight's film will be the  sixth film of Ingmar Bergman  presented by the Film Society in the fourth year of its  existence, but unlike the previous Bergman films, this one,.  tSmiles of a Summer Night is  an erotic comedy based on tbe  classical exercise of partner-  swdtching.

Council was also concerned over  the fact that anyone could plug  into the outlets without paying  for  the  electricity.  G.M. McKay, regional harbours and wharves administrator, wrote council that arrangements were being made  to have the electrical system  inspected and if possible to  have it adjusted to lessen the  action^ would be taken "other-  wise ^j^ pull the switch."  Ald��fli_an Bill Laing, wharf  committee chairman, reported  he had~'met with two people  who represented the wharf  users. A solution to the electrical problem wasn't reached  but the wharf users did feel  that the proposed $15 per  month electricity charge was  too high.  Aid.

He moved them to Sechelt  in 1919, where he rented a cottage, orithe^ end of what  is now Beach Avenue. It was  at Sechelt where he met his  Wife-tp-be, Lily Gilbertson in  1920.7 They were married in  1��27. '���"������:  In 1923 he bought the store  at Selma Park for the family.  At this time he worked at various camps, at hand logging,  and cutting and towing shingle  bolts for the mill at Clowhom  Falls.  For a tiirie he lived at Selma  Park with his wife and child,  building houses for the Union  Steamship Co. They moved to  Wilson Creek in 1036 where he  w'as head boom man for Burns  and Jackson Logging until 1945 -  when he and family moved to  Gibsons, where he lived for the  rest of his life.  He worked at government  wharf repair, hand logging,  and finally log salvage,'when  he was known as one of the  few honest practitioners of that  curious  trade.  In his youth he was a friend  of rhany of the mountain men  and early settlers of the area  roughly centred on Jervis Inlet, and also had many friends  among the Indians at this time.  He had a great many fascinating stories of these people  which he enjoyed telling to  those (who showed interest. He  was a keen fisherman, a moun-  ��� tain climber, trapper and a  hunter of unsurpassed skill,  being the finest shot with a  rifle I have ever met. There is  extant a clipping about a turkey Shoot on Vancouver Island where he was barred  from competing as "unfair to  other  contestants."  In later years he had a  change of heart, and would  hunt no more saying that  times had changed, and his  sympathy was now with the  game.  In his memory I offer the  following, to 'whom it may interest:  Observe, if you have the  opportunity, the mountainous  northwestern slope of Bowen  Island, facing Keats and Gibsons. In the midst of the brown  and barren wastes left by logging lies a patch of apparently  untouched green timber, about  a mile of shoreline hy half'  that in depth.  It was selectively handlog-  ged of merchantable timber by  Hal Hammond and was thus  not worthwhile machine logging, it may not last but while  it does it is a monument he  would have liked.

Fisheries officer Ray Kraft  testified Connors had eight undersized crabs in his possession  when he went to his home  Nov. 20. He told the court Connors said he Was surprised to  find the crabs were under the  legal size.  Connors explained to Judge  J. S. tP. Johnson that there  were two ways of measuring  crabs, "the correct way and my  wlay." He demonsrated on one  of the crabs entered as evidence that measuring the round  on the crab's back would bring  it to 6% inches. Fisheries officer Kraft informed the court  that the correct way of measuring the crab was straight  across the back.  "The humiliation is more to  me than any fine you could impose," Connors' told the judge.  The confiscated crabs were donated to the hospital and old  age pensioners.

The charge had been laid by  L. F. TRoiwland resulting from  ari incident on Highway 101  just north of the cemetery corner near Gibsons. Rowland  complained to police that  school bus driver Bunyan had  . passed his vehicle and cut him  off when moving back into the  right lane. Rowland said the  back third of the school bus  was still beside his vehicle  when the school bus negotiated  back into the right line.  Bunyan testified that he had  passed Rowland's vehicle "because he was doin'g 30-35 mpjh.  and I have a schedule to keep.".  He explained that he parsed  the YRowland vehicle on a  straight stretch of highway  and when an oncoming car appeared over the crest of, the1  hill he moved into the righli:  line in front of the Rowland  vehicle and behind another car.  '^There was about 70 feet  between the two cars unless  he was tailigatirig," Bunyan testified, "arid the bus is only 30-  feet long."  Judge J. S. P. Johnson said  that there was a definite' cori-  flict of evidence and "I have  no reason to riot believe either." He found the , accused  not guilty.

(Rusty) Rustemeyer of North Vancouver, B.C., has' been elected  vice-chairman    of    the    NSC  '' Wood Products Section. He is  one of the few Canadians ever  to be elected to this office. He  was also appointed to the Industrial Conference board of  the National Safety Council.  Rustemeyer is safety manager for the Canfor Group of  companies. Canfor is a Canadian owned, fully integrated  forest industry complex with  head offices in Vancouver,  woodland operations and manufacturing facilities in B.C. and  Alberta and building materials  distribution centres across Canada, including the Port Mellon  pulp mill.  In 1948, his first year with  the company, Rustemeyer proposed the world-wide Turtle  Club; as part of a hard hat  safety campaign. The club was  disbanded in 1973 with more  than 10,000 meriiibejrs on its  rolls. Each memlber bad been  saved from serious injury or  v death by ;a hard hat.  LIONS $100 WINNER  , Mrs. D. G. Cox of Vancouver !won $100 last week in the  Lions 400 club draw on a ticket drawn by Mrs. Milliner.  By Cpl. D.K. Price  This week I am dealing with  defective motor vehicles and  I quote for your information  Sec. 205(1) Motor Vehicle Act:  No person , shall drive or  operate a motor vehicle or  trailer on any highway or rent  any vehicle or trailer unless it  is equipped in all respects in  compliance with the provisions  of this act of the regulations.  There is one division of the  motor vehicle act dealing iwith  the safety standards that apply  to all vehicles. These standards  are too- numerous to mention  here. All motorists should  know when their vehicle ;. is  defective and their excuse I  didn't know is not being accepted by the police.  ��� A few hints might be in order. The first one is to check  your vehicle before you take  it onto a highway. Check- your  lights, make sure; that all lights  are -forking, adjust your mirror, pump your -brakes a few  times. If it is raining, check  your windshield wipers and  if your windtojws are fogged up.  clean them off before you  move your car.  These little hints Trriight take  you   a   few   minutes,   but it  might save your life of someone else.. It may also save you  a,ticket if we catch you driving with one headlight out.  Please bear in mind that the  police will be setting up roadblocks  starting this weekend.

REYBURN,  Building Inspector  Maybe you aire one of the people who really  believe that some advertisers deliberately  set out to drive you stark raving bonkers.  Maybe you've even heard that some  advertisers operate on the principle that irritating advertising works just as effectively  as good, interesting, imaginative advertising.  Well, it isn't so. Every advertising message  is designed for certain reasons. Perhaps it is  to make a lot of people aware of one,  spedfic point Or to haake a select few appre-  tiatei several important facts.The advertiser  biows to whom he wants to talk and, presumably, he knows how to talk to those  people/If his message seems completely ri-  diculous to you, it could be because you  are not one of the jpeople he is hoping will   .  buy Iiis product or service.  That's not always the case, of course. On the  other hand,you may see just as many advertisements you think are perfectly delightful���but they may not make you in the least  interested in buyingwhat they are selling.!  Advertisers never intentionally set out to  annoy. And even the advertising you hate  most is almost certain to be quite acceptable  to a lot of other people. ���  Still,ist-_ere something you can. do about  advertisingyou really can't stand? Ceatainfy  Butwhatyou do depends on why you  don't like it  If it'sjust that you personally dislike the  person or persons involvedVyoiimight just  as well ignore it.  If you think the advertising is in had taste or  is an insult to your intelligence,write and  tell the advertiser so. He cares. If you really  think someone is getting away with false  or misleading advertising, write to us.We care.  But if you don't like a comp��riy^s adver-  tising,yet aren't reallycffehded by it, thereV  stiUoneveiyefifertivewaytpdealwith.it:  just don't buy the product. When siales go  <_bwn, advertising is one of the first things  a company looks at as a possible reason.  Advertising is, after all, only a means for a 7'  , company to tell you about a product or ser-  vicetheywantyoutpbuy.
