An official of Coast Cable  Vision stated^ "Jt's hard to understand what satisfaction  could possibly be derived from  mischievous acts such as we  have encountered in the last  , two months Thousands of people in the Gibsons area rely  ,on cablevision for their television entertainment and ultimately it is those people who  are hurt."  The matter has been referred to the RCMiP and Coast  Cable Vision is offering a reward of $100 for information  resulting in the arrest and  conviction of - persons responsible for damages to company  property.

Public meeting on water deal  Areas, outside Gibsons served with' water from Gibsons  will be turned over to the iRe-  gional District board. This was  announced at Tuesday .night's  meeting' of Gibsons council.  Approval by the Regional  board had been made earlieh  What is involved' is the purchase of the Pratt and Veterans roads systems, by the Regional District system. At the  . same time, there will be a system tie-in achieved by the Regional -board and, Gibsons  council. 7The two systems  could operate as one" if the  need arose!   < -t  Gibsons Aid. Kurt Hoehne  reporting to council made the  following statement: f  'The two councils, the village council of Gibsons and  the Regional District board  have reached a successful con-"  elusion after many extensive  meetings to discuss" the joint  development of water resources in the Gibsons Heights  area.  - 'For the past year a, number  of alternates have been considered and professional advice  solicited by the councils to  better assist in reaching a decision that would hopefully satisfy everyone. The department  of Municipal Affairs, provided  direction with reference to .the  legal implications and the/engineering .firm of Dayton _&  Knight Ltd. assisted- in. adVis-  jjpg- as to the practical' application of suggested develop^  ments. From this, councils,  narrowed the workable^alt  ��� nat_^.4ft_?ui tftVthyee,,projf "*  byJ the "Regional* THsirict  Gibsons council. - *  'Gibsons council accepted  the Regional District offer to  purchase that portion oi: the,  waterworks system owned by,  the village of Gibsons outside  its municipal boundaries name  ly Pratt and Veterans Roads  for a price yet to be negotiated. The Regional. District in  making its offer to purchase  these lines indicated that it  would fulfill their obligation  with the water function for  Electoral Area. E.  'Gibsons' council feeling an  obligation to the residents oi?  the Village felt better able to  supply the needs of its residents by transferring the ownership    and   responsibility   of  development of the outside  lines to the Regional District.  The decision to transfer ownership came after many hours  of discussion between the two  councils and after many hours  of submission and rejection of  ���proposals by both parties. It  affords me the greatestN of  pleasure as waterworks chairman to state that the final decision was' reached^ amicably  by both councils.  'The future program of waterworks development for Gibsons area will be discussed extensively at the Oct. 19, public,  meeting to be, held at 3 p.m. in  the United Church Hall, Gibsons. I would urge all residents who have questions and  or suggestions with respect to  our waterworks system to  make the effort of attending  this meeting.  Gibsons council after sevr  eral meetings and in consultation with the firm of Diaytom  & Knight came to the following conclusions:  It was generally felt that the  Regional  District' in order  to  ' fulfill it's obligation in the water function in Area' E (West  Gibsons - Gower Pt.) should  not be interferred -with. That  . Gibsons council is in agreement with proposal No. 2 of  iSept. 16, namely that the Re-  - gional District is to purchase  hat portion of waterworks system owned by the Village o��  Gibsons outside its municipal  boundaries.   ' .  As jboth lines carry shutoff  valves- -connected to Gibsons  main distribution line council  would agree to utilize these  valves to the fullest extent in  an emergency, (fire, etc.), to  assure the utmost in dependability of this most important  commodity. In a case as previously stated, surplus, water  could be pumped into Regional District lines or vice versa  to increase fire flow quantity.  Gibsons council and the Regional board agreed to coni-  sideration of proposals put forward by the board's water?  committee which included representation ��� from Gibsons  council.

RESOURCE  MEETING  The   first   meeting   of   the  Sunshine    Coast    Community  ,-��� Resources will be. held at Sechelt's      Elementary     school,  Wed., Oct. 23 starting at 8 p.m.  This society, organized one  year ago, co-ordinates services  in the field of health and related services. Transportation  assistance and home-makers'  help'is also part of the services  like 25 questions, tackling  each one in a manner reminiscent of his rugger days. He  did not recede one inch.  In his main speech the important feature was his challenge to the mining companies  to disiclose their political contributions to opposition parties  This came out when he raked  Soc'red Bill Bennett's stand  that if his party was elected  he would wipe out the new  Mineral  Royalties  act.  'How much do the mining  companies give to the political  parties of this province?' Barrett asked. 1 ask the mining  companies to announce tomorrow what they've been giving  the political parties in this  province.  'And I'm sure they'll tell me.  The mining companies are  very nice! people. They buy  great big ads in the newspapers and say these,are the faqtis  and they list their complaints.'  The premier likened the five  percent mineral tax to: the  five percent sales tax the public pays on whatever it purchases. ��� -  Ken Barker, chairmai-il of the  local NDfP association introduced Premier Barrett and  others  on  the rostrum. They  Word has eventually reached Gibsons concerning the  trial of Danny Joseph Paul on  charges arising as a result of  the Elpbinstone school fire.  Records show the; charges  were dismissed because police  evidence concerning an admission of guilt7was. not allowed as evidence.  He faced two charges, one  that he did unlawfully and  wilfully set fire to Elphinstone school on June. 30, 1973  arid secondly that he set fire  to a substance. He appeared  before Judge  Proudfoot.  now, available compared to  that,of iSocred^days. There is  how a Hansard which the public and members can read to  .find out what-is'going on. He  then cited the Land act, socialized medicine, mincome,  pharmacare and help for the  '  Indians.^  (As a result of his trip to  the ISechelt Reserve where he  saw what the band h.ad done  with government loans, the  . work the Indians had done  obtained a few minutes TV  ���display over CBC.)  On industrial takeovers he  pointed out there had been no  expropriations like the Bennett takeover of B.C. Hydro.  The ten cent levy per ton of  coal to Japan is now $1.50. As  regards natural gas His government was in the business  of selling and the tax levy  wihich: was 31 cents was now  ��1 cents ahdr going up. There  would be no more long term,  contact and the price of Louis-  ana gas at $1.35 per 1-000 cubic feet could also become the  price UjS.' might pay for Canadian gas.  He hoped we would not be  dominated by. non-national  owners and would seek help  under- the . federal immigration laws arid if he could not,  get It there.he would try some)  other method.  Before concluding he said  the government still has a  great deal to do. before the  next election^ There - were so  many things to be .done in his  obligation to the people of  this province. >  The question period covered  'B.C. Tel, the $100,000,000 over  spending,, ferry rates, power  expansion, a ministry of fisheries, vocational education  covering apprentices, phone  expansions, to do away with  nine-party lines; the spreading of cablevision, .dental costs  rest homes for pensioners, welfare, co-ops and the gasoline  tax. ���   --  tions were:- -    '  OK) To revert to the original  concept outlined in the 1967  Water Study of Dayton &  Knight as the1 most feasible,  effective and economical system that the Sunshine Coast  Regional District purchases  the entire water system and as  sumes responsibility for supply and distribution on tbe  same basis as presently-for the  Municipality of Sechelt; or  (2) To purchase that portion  of the - (waterwoi'ks system  owned by the Village of Gibsons outside its municipal  boundaries; or  (3) To proceed with the total installation of the capital  works necessary to upgrade  the quantity and pressure of  water available to the Village  of Gibsons. In this connection,  a scheme has already been pre  pared wihich is preferred by  the Regional Board over the  Village of Gibsons develop- ,  ment proposal both for economic and technical reasons.  Gibsons , council   agreed   to  proposal numiber two.  Public misled  union claims  1 The B.C. Hospitals Association is deliberately misleading  the public by issuing distorted news releases on' the in-  ; comes tof hospital workers,  ' Hospital Employees' Union  ��� - business manager Jack* Gerow ���  said in a recent press release.  "By twisting figures around  and adding tip hypothetical  percentages that haven't yet  been determined, the BCHA is  painting a nonsensical picture  of soaring incomes among our  members," Gerow said.  "Even with the cost of living allowance in the union's  * current contract, hospital work  ers are seeing their dollar's  buying power dwindle under  the effects of inflation."  The BCHA has said in press  releases that pay increases in  the current collective agreement and the cost of living  clause could result in wage  hikes of 40 percent over two  years for some of HEU's 13,-  000 members.  The figure was arrived at  by   adding negotiated   raises  and possible increases due to  the rising cost of living. The  Cost   of   Living   Adjustment  clause provides a one percent  pay hikev for every percentage rise in the cost of living,  after an initial two percent inflation,   at   the   end   of   six-  month periods, in the coritract.  For example, a seven percent rise in the cost of living  over six months would result  in-a five percent pay adjustment    for    HEU    members,  "There   is   nothing   lucrative  about that method of achieving   pay    increases,"    Gerow  said.  "Our members, like most  people in our society, would  be better off if the cost of liv-Y  ing stayed where it was and  Cost of Living Adjustment  raises were non-existent." t  As it is, Gerow explained, if  an HEU member's January 1,  1974 dollar is now worth 93  cents, the COLA clause has  provided a "raise" that keeps  Jhis buying-power loss to only  two cents, instead of seven.  HEU members received a  12 percent wage increase last Y  January 1 and will get a further eight percent boost next  January 1, or $60 per month,  whichever is greater. 2     Coast News, Oct.16, 1974.  -_* *-..

' After years of blocked negotiations for a water supply agreement between the Regional ^strict board and  Gibsons council, one has been achiev^i.  Tuesday mglrfs meel^Tih Gib_acxt^  an agreement, one which the area could have-had three  or four, years ago withveryHttle trouble.  vVfyat happened^ih^ Tinwlved a mayor representing  Gibsons, and who was also Gibsons representative on the  Regional board. Having expansionist ideas in mind he  prevented the Regional board from taking over the  Pratt Road water service by providing ah enlarged service,  Lat^ he preseiited the  which informed the board what Gibsons would do and  also what Gibsons expected the Regiona-J District would  do. This did not sit WeU Twith ^  anxious to get on with the area water Tproblem but not  on the terms presented by that mayor.  So the Regional board turned its efforts towards  looking after its own growing system in the hop^s the  Gibsons attitude would change. Ijast June it did change  and the early June council meeting announced a combined operation between the Regional Dislanct boar^ and  Gibsons _ouncil working on a $275,000 plan to,provide  domestic water to the Chaster Road - Gibsons Heights  area, based on a Dayton & Knight survey.  Following a progress meeting with representatives  from Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SGRD) water comrhittei- it was agreed that a brief  study wbiild be completecl for waterworks .improvements  ahd ___tension^in t__e Chaster Road - Gibsons Heights  area.' , ���. , . ..'7 .���  Ihe^ intehti6n7Wast?o utilize the Chaster Road well,  the Reed Road reservoirs, as. well as existing Gibsons  and SCRD watermains. The service area would be extended to include areas between the Chaster Road; well  arid Pratt Roadj Reed Road, and possibly Cemetery Road.  Last March it was agreed between the board and  council that the Dayton and E-hight proposal be completed. This became a reality in May and with Gibsons  finding itself in the position where it could riot charge  municipal taxes on land outside its municipal boundary,  decided to rectify that situation arid turn over to Regional Board any water systems within its jurisoUction.  The water systems on Pratt Road arid in Veterans  Road area are involved and the entire issue will become  a matter for the voters to decide. Council has7called'.'a,  public meeting in the United Church Hall for Saturday  afternoon at 3 o'clock when Mayor Larry Labonte backedN up by his council will lay the Whole matter before  the public so it can decide whether co>uncil'has sho^m  wisdom in its water policy. 7     Y-    '     rf    .  Judging others!  Most of us take delight in discovering the follies and  sins arid shortcomings of others and in chatting 7know-  ingly about them. Gossip does bring ns some cheap comfort, giving us nice feelings of superio^ty. Our Tweak-  .nesses and failures do not seem so serious when we can  compare them with the. monstrous ones of some people  we know. We like to gossip because it generally makes  ixs feel much better about ourselves., Y  Behind much of our gossippirig is the mechanism the  psychologists call 'proj ection.' There is the tendency to  attribute to others our own reprehensible attitudes and  feelings. A London psychiatrist, Dr. J. A Hadfield, has  commented ori this tendency: ^  "In judging other we trumpet abroad, our secret  faults. We personalize our unrecognized fallings, and  hate in others the very faults to which we are secretly  addicted. Like the lark fluttering with agitation over  her nest, we exhibit most flagrantly the very thing we  would hide."  Think about that the next time you are tempted to  assist in the distribution of malicious rumors about some  one you know.  5 - 25     ScJidpl population sloiwiiigup  s  yrs. ago  Five Years Ago  Discussing pulp mill water,  .pollution at a public meeting,.

Total enrolment "has tapered  off, the numiber of teachers is  actually declining, schools are  consolidating or closing and  capital costs are levelling off.  It is a trend to be welcomed,  says the Review.  'Not only will it supply some  much - needed   relief   to" the  hard-pressed taxpayer (unless,  of course, the slack is ;taken  (up in other areas of, government spending), but it also affords the educational authorities an'opportunity to further  upgrade the quality of education.'  iThe Review notes that if  Canadian population projections hold true, pressures on  elementary " and secondary  schools should continue to ease  until about .1985. After that,  the very young school age population will begin to expand  again and . we can anticipate  increases in spending.  During this period, enrolment in post-secondary institutions should also ease up.*  The Review- points out that  many of these are already  having a hard time attracting  students. However, the growing interest in part-time study  (part-time enrolment had tripl  ed in the 10' years up to 1973);  should cushion this apparent  drop in overall enrolment..  The Review says that with  the general drop in enrolment,  the demand for teachers has  also fallen off.  -Preliminary data for ��� the  present school year show a decline of 1.3 percent to 265,000  in the numiber of elementary  and secondary teachers, and  such a trend/should continue  for the remainder of'this'de  cade Y it says.  Naturally enough, the number of. schools is declining as  well.   In   1967,   for   example,  Canada had nearly 20,000 ele- ,-  njentary and secondary schools.  This, year,   there   are   about.,  '16,000,    a    statistic   reflecting'  the ^closing, of. rural - srityopls,, ,  the move toward larger, more  comprehensive    schools, -p anc_  fewer   students    to    fill  >the  classrooms. ~  As the pressures of'the baby.',  -boom of .the *___ and '60s ihave '  passed on, there is no longer*  the need for massive building f  in the elementary and secon-  ��_L*iJ  dary level.  At the post-secondary level  much of past expenditures involved the putting in place  of .necessary facilities and the  incurring 'of hefty capital costs  a process that has been for the  most part completed'.  The, Review, .notes, that in  the past two' decades, educational .. spendingyincres^ed by  more than -lb percent per year,  even 'considering certain ' inflation indices. More recently,  the average- annual" spending  Increase, has run 'only slightly  -ahead* of fhe rate'of^price increases.-  N9  :T  N  discover;  the SUNSHINE COAST  K.

DUTEAU, 886-7148  Kinsmen New Year's Eve Bali \  Officials; premier confer  Coast News, Oct. 16., 1974.     3  In a short meeting with  Premier Dave Barrett Thursday at the Sunshine Coast Regional District offices in Be-  ctielf, local officials had " a  chance to do some handshaking with the Premier and also convey any loijg standing  grievances.  Frank West, chairman of the  Regional  Board,   told  Barrett  the  Sunshine   Coast  has   the'  same problems  as  everybody  else^and that instant answers  aren't expected. 'But we hope  you will take them with you  in   your   memory/  Mr.   West  said.'  When the Premier queried  on the results of Bill 88, a recently legislated bill to assist  municipalities with sewage  development Mr. West said  that it would be a lot more  beneficial to this area _if the.  bill were extended to cover  water development. Mr. West,  referring to the Chapman  Creek watershed, said that  the local governments cannot  supply water without charging an extremely high rate.  Gibsons   Mayor   Larry   Labonte agreed that the sewage  situation in Gibsons is under  v     control and the big thing now  is water.  Mr. Labonte further appealed to the Premier for a park  area in Gibsons. Mr. Labonte  said that he would like to see  tourist facilities in Gibsons  similar to those in Porpoise  Bay. TPhere is no place for  tourists except private enterprise and I would like to see  a few acres of crown land a -  little  closer  to   Gibsons,'  Mr,  Laibonte said.     ���    -  In voicing, some of - the local  problems in education^ School  Board chairman Agnes Labonte stressed the dangers of  the deep ditch which runs a-  long Highway 101 in front of  Elphinstone School. Mrs. Labonte said that with the ap-r  proaching bad weather and  darkness and the fact that Elphinstone runs in .shifts the  situation is very hazardous.  She said that the department  of toighiways has been notified  several times and no action  has been taken.  M:L.A,., Don Lockstead answered that the ditch problem "was one of the first things  he looked into after the election. He said that it would  have been cleared up but  there were some problems  with the village concerning  drainage and funding.  . In an effort to close a communication gap with local levels ��� of government Premier  Barrett inquired about the effects of other -legislation such  as removal of tax limitations  on industrial properties which  as Sechelt Mayor Harold Nelson noted, .means little to the  Sunshine Coast because of the  lack of industry.  The Premier also asked  about daycare and hospital  facilities and was surprised  that St. Mary's did not have  any psychiatric care facilities. ,  He said that it. was now the  governments priority to spend  money on schools and hospitals.

This week, I will discuss damage to property that  exceeds $50 in value and it is  commonly:, called mischief.  The-'offence' of mischief is  coinih_:rt���dYwhen'Vou wilfully  damage property, render property inoperative, obstruct or  interfere with the lawful' use  of propery or obstruct or in-  use and enjoyment of the pro-  terfere with any person in the  perty. -the two most common  sub-sections of Sec. 387 Criminal Code are as follows:  iSec. 387 (3) Every one who  commits mischief in relation  to public property is guilty of  an indictable offence and is  liable to imprisonment for  fourteen years. .  Sec. 387 (4) Everyone who  commits mischief in relation  to private property is guilty  of an indictable offence and is  liable to imprisonment for  five years.  It is a very serious offence  to be, charged with mischief.  If  you  are  an  adult  person  (17 years and older) you will  be fingerprinted and photographed and upon conviction  of mischief to public property,  liable to 14 years in jail. Your  conviction will remain with  you for life unless you apply  to have a pardon granted.  In the - next few -weeks I  will be discussing court, procedures. ?

First of all, strictly speaking,  curling can be enjoyed' and  played by any person big enough to throw a rock down the  ice. I would guess any child of  11 or older could do this. For  this reason we will open the  rink free to the schools of-the  area for their physical education programs. Our . present  schedule allows two full days  per week for school use. More  time could likely be made available if it is needed.  Now for the tougher question,   what   about   the   little  children   under   11 * years   of  age?   For  them   we   have   no  program  except  for  6  weeks  of possible skating and roller  skating in the off season.

SHORTENING  AND COOKING OIL  (Issued   by   the  Food' Priceis  Review Board as a Service to'  Consumers)  Shortening prices   have  in-  . creased! by approximately 50  percent at the retail,.level during the past _year while cooking oil"]5iioes have .doulbled.  The main ingredients of  shortenings and cooking oil_  are edible vegetable, marine,  and _ animal oils. Shortenings  are usually blends of all three  with the'major portion consisting of edible tallow. The oils  are blended and homogenized  , to form spreadable solids at  room temperature. Cooking  oils consist of blended or pure  vegetable-oils. Canadian per  capita consumption of- these  products amounted to 17 lbs.  in 1973 with commercial consumption ' accounting > for 90  percent of the total.     *  The  major reasons for the  rapid price increases in short- -  enings and cooking oils over  the past year are:' ' '  \ "'  A world-wide shortage, of  edible oils in all classes has  driven up price bids for avial-  able supplies. Marine and animal oils (edible tallow) have  more than doubled in price between January 1973 and the  present; soybean and rapeseed  oils have quadrupled, and corn  oil has also more than doubled.  Since the fat-oil content of edible oil content in these products is 1100 percent by weight,  the   increased   raw   material  "costs are reflected almost directly in factory and retail  prices. The situation will not  be alleviated until world pro-  ' duction of edible oils overtakes world consumption.  There have been some current  indications that. edible v vegetable oil prices are starting to  moderate, in anticipation of  larger oil seed "harvests this  year.   " '  Increased costs for packaging, labour and energy, have ;  ; also. combined :to .exert, sigiii- :  fjcant^ujyward price pressures. ^  Manufacturers have  absorbed  'some of these costs but a portion has to be borne by the  consumer.  Consumers should expect  continued high prices for  shortening   and   cooking   oils  .until later this year when-retail prices may decline slightly due to anticipated increases  iii edible oil supplies. Since  the bulk of these, products are  ���consumed commercially, retail prices for processed foods  _ utilizing shortenings and cooking oils' should reflect the  changes in prices of edible  oils.  -  This' is one of a series of  articles and readers interested1  in having copies of some of  these reviews, or of the complete series, they may be obtained, by" writing tor Food  Prices Review Board,- Information Division, P.O.

What follows on this page, U a Very simple summary o^  new laws., and what they mean to you the landlord, and you the tenant.  While this is only a summary, and does not cover all the laws found in the new Landlord and Tenant Act, it d<  with the questions most commonly asked. This page will be of value to you as a piece of reference materia  worth Clipping and saving.  For purposes of interpreting and applying the law in more detail, the Act itself should be consulted. Copies of  are available at nominal cost from the Queen's Printer, Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B. C.  The Of f ice of the  Rentalsman  The laws contained in the new Landlord and  Tenant Act of British Columbia govern  relationships between landlords and tenants  who rent residential premises, the Act clearly -  defines many of the rights and obligations of  both parties.  Misunderstandings may still arise, however,  and it is for this reason that the government has  established the rentalsman ��� to act as  ombudsman and mediator in landlord-tenant  disputes, and to provide prompt decisions.  , The services of the rentalsman are free, and  can save both.landlords and tenants lengthy  and costly legal action. Questions can be -  directed by phone, by mail or in person.     \  What Is Covered By  the Landlord arid ,  Tenant Act?  The Act applies generally to all dwelling units  used for residential premises (including mobile  homes and land that is rented for mobile  homes), but it does not apply to non-prof it,  co-operatives, or nursing home facilities  licensed by the Department of Health.  A tenancy agreement is the contract between  the landlord and tenant about the rent,  services, privileges and restrictions respecting  the residential premises reached when the  tenant agrees to rent the premises from the  landlord.  A tenancy agreement doesn't have to be in  writing. A written agreement is advantageous  to landlord and tenant in the event of a  subsequent dispute, but a verbal agreement is  a vailid agreement. Whatever the form of  agreement, it may be changed only when both  landlord and tenant agree to the change.  Any term of an agreement wh ich takes away  the rights of either party given by the Act is void:  A landlord can include any reasonable  obligation or restriction in a tenancy  agreement. If there is doubt whether a  restriction or obligation is reasonable, the  rentalsman should be consulted.  Where the tenancy agreement is in writing,  the landlord must give a copy of the agreement  to the tenant within 21 days. Until he receives  such a copy, the tenant has no obligation to  honor any part of the agreement, including the  payment of rent.  :<i><  Terminating A  Tenancy Agreement  ��� Giving Notice  A notice of termination from either the  landlord or the tenant must be in writing, must  include the address of the premises, must  specify the day on which the premises are to be  vacated (the termination date), and it must be  signed. It is recommended that the landlord  also outline his reasons for giving notice.  The termination date must be set one day  before the day on which the rent is due.  In a month-to-month tenancy, where the  tenant pays rent every month, notice must be  given not less than 30 days before the  termination date.  In a week-to-week tenancy, notice must be  '**given not less than 28 days before the  termination date ahd~again, the date must be  set one day before a rent payment day.  Where a tenancy agreement is for a specified  period of time, such as a year, unless the  landlord gives 30 days notice of termination, or  a new tenancy agreement is entered into, the    ,.  tenancy agreement becomes a month-to- ~  month tenancy. s  There are some exceptions to these rules.  For example, if the landlord requires the  premises for himself, his wife, children, parents  or in-laws, 60 days notice must be given to the  tenant Other exceptions are discussed under  the headings "Reasons for Termination" and  "Conversions from Rental Accommodation".  A tenant can deliver written notice to the  landlord personally or by ordinary mail.  , A landlord must/attempt to deliver a written  notice to the tenant or if this cannot be done, a  notice may be given to an adult apparently  residing with the tenant; by certified or  registered mail, or by posting the notice up on  the tenant's door, or in some place where the  tenant would be sure to see it.  A tenant who receives a notice of termination  may require that the landlord give him detailed  reasons in writing within the next two days. The  tenant may dispute the termination by giving  notice to the rentalsman, not less than 15 days  before the termination date specified. The  rentalsman will then decide if the termination is  justified.  Reasons For  Termination  A landlord cannot arbitrarily terminate a  tenancy agreement. He must have a valid  reason. The tenant may appeal to the  rentalsman to determine whether or not the  reason is justified. A landlord may terminate a  tenancy agreement if:  ��� A tenant fails to pay rent owing within five  days after receipt of a notice of demand  from the landlord.  ��� A tenant or his guest(s) disturb other  tenants in the building.  -��� A tenant damages the premises beyond  reasonable wear and tear.  ��� The landlord requires the premises for his  t      use, for the use of his wife, child,  parents or in-laws.  ��� The premises are going to be demolished.  ��� The premises are to be converted to  condominium or co-operative housing, or  if the landlord intends tp enter into a lease  arrangement of more than three years.  ��� The tenant knowingly misrepresents the  premises to a prospective tenant or  purchaser. ^ ,  ��� The tenancy agreement is for residential  premises in a hotel, motel, etc., or if the  agreement clearly stipulates a seasonal  arrangement and a termination date.  ��� The premises become occupied by a  person under 19 years of age, contrary to  the tenancy agreement.  ��� The premises become occupied by a  larger number of persons under J 9,years  v of age than was agreed upon in the  tenancy agreement.  ��� The tenant or his guest(s) endanger the  safety of the landlord or other tenants.  '��� The tenant is an employee whose  residential premises were provided by the  employer and are withdrawn-upon the  termination of employment.  ��� An unreasonable number of persons are   ,  occupyingthe premises..  "    ^  . There is one special circumstance in which  the tenant cannot dispute the landlord's notice  of termination. The tenant does not have this  right if the landlord has already applied for and  obtained the rentalsman's written consent to  the termination. The rentalsman will give this  consent only where the landlord satisfies him  that the tenant's conduct is severely disturbing  the peace or endangering the safety of  neighbouring tenants or is causing ��� -  extraordinary damage to the premises.  Conversions  from Rental  Accommodation  I   It has already been mentioned that a landlord  ' can terminate a tenancy agreement because  he is going to convert the premises into a  . condominium or co-operative or enter into a  tenancy agreement for more than three years.  When this occurs, the landlord must have the  approval of the municipality where the  ,. premises are located, and he must (Jive the  tenant 120 days notice of termination. Where  the building is to be demolished, 120 days  notice is also required. The landlord must also  pay the tenant's moving expenses up to $300.  In this situation, the tenant may decide to  vacate before the termination date specified by  the landlord. If so, he must give the landlord  notice of the day he intends to leave and such  notice must be given to the landlord no later  than 10 days prior to the termination date  specified by the landlord. The tenant must pay  rent Up to the date he leaves the premises.

Hallowe'en  solemn event  Ifpne time  '  October 31st -.- Hallowe'en,  the fun-feast which children  enjoy more than any other,  perhaps with the exception' of  Christmas. Yet our veryr distant ��� ancestor-..the Angla-Sax-  ons of the Bronze Age. called  it the Feast of the Dead.  They dedicated it to the dead  fry setting forth a special long  table in their Great Halls, near  the door, so that the Dead,  -who were believed! to be walking the earth that night, might  come in ahd feast upon the  special food set put for them.  The finestY of silver dishes  ���were used, loaded with the  best of food and drink, the  strongest of mead, the whitest  of bread, the choicest of meats,  the sweetest of honey.  It was a very solemn, not a  mirthful occasion as it is today, and the faces of the living folk gathered in the Great  Hall were tense, and although  games were played and minstrels sang their loudest, and  the younger folk bobbed for  apples, even as some do today,  all ears /were attuned to the  moaning voices of the dead  they seemed to hear in the  bleak fall wind which whistled outside.  That is why the feast was  celebrated! in the fall,, with the  onset of winter very near, at  a time which marked the end  of the fruitful life which came  to the earth in the spring and  .which flourished in the sun of  summer. The forces of evil  were believed to be abroad at  this time, and so arose all the  superstitions of witches riding  their broomsticks, of black  cats steathily prowling in the  darkness.  These belief s were so strong  over many years before the  dawn of history, that the  Christian church found it dif- *  ficult to eradicate them. And  so it adapted itself to them,  changing them to Christian  concepts and substituting  Christian feasts for the pagan  ones. Thus the Feast of the  Dead became All Saints Eve  or Hallowe'en, which is followed! on November 1 by All  Saints' Dayy.  Andi the former dread Feast  of the Dead eventually became a time of frolic, which  still retains some of the customs of that earlier feast.  Children; today dress up in  weird costumes, which are actually an inheritance from the  mummer�� who later, in mediaeval times, went from door  to door collecting gifts to purchase an animal for sacrifice;  And the lighter-herted celebration of this feast still involves  a choice of ancient spells, most  of them having to do with hazel nuts and apples which  were sacred in pagan rites of  the druids.  Despite these changes, Hallowe'en has probably retained 7  more of its ancient character  of mystery and fantasy than  any other of our modern festivals.  Auxiliary draws members  .

Becoming president of a local clu<b for the first time is  in many ways like moving into  a new community. It takes/  time to discover the background necessary for the continuing impro^ and development of the club. Among  the explorations are bound to  be discoveries that all is not  the' happy world that maiiy  have believedi existed1.  Driftwood Players has been  in existence for some six years  now. At our inception a very  cordial working arrangement  seemed to exist with the school  board. It recognized our contribution to the community  and gave us the use of facilities  accordingly. .  But almost immediately the.  cordiality began to decay.  It. In '1972, the Driftwood  Players agreed with the school  board to present a yearly children's play to tourthe schools.  This allowed the school board  to cancel any contracts with  Holiday! Playhouse for the  same thing which had been  costing about $15QG (in '72);.  Our agreement included $250  production costs, plus transportation costs, and 25c per  child attending. This totalled  approximately $900 per year.  In '73 we did not receive our  $250 production fee, and priri-  .  cipals were given the option  of charging the 25c,  presumably making up an equivalent  amount from, school fiihdisi.'.  In '74 it appeared that &e  schools were also given the  option to decide whether the  children would ;attend.  , 2. In 1972 we were asked  to apply for rehearsal,7y^6r__r  shop and: pei-oraiancie sp^e as  a part of the adulteaUicaticm  program. The payment for this  was treated with the kind of  consideration that I think is  (due to a club that has no solid!  financial base. ; 7  In '73 the Players were approached, asked' the numberTof  members who would- bev attending the night school class,  and charged accordingly -7- $10  per person.     7  This year is the same, but  add little difficulties like Tfind-  ing someone to unlock $he  School ten minutes after we  should have begun, the decidedly overprotective attitude, of  sohool custodians and a reduction of bur hours -���it does become closeto impossible. Y? 77  Driftwood Players, as a club,  are dedicated to the deyeidp-  iment of an awareness and appreciation of theatre within  this community as a whole.  The continued high quality of  our productions is a function of  time, effort and money.  When our relationship ,with  the local school board begins  to erode all three of these)  factors, it is time to say stop!  Can we start again, please?  From the beginning?
