 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C,  The Sunshine  Printed and (Published at Gibsons, B.C  2.  10c per copy  Volume 28,      Number 15, April 16, 1975.  School superintendent, 47  selected by trustees  IT-ie Pejpartment of Education has accepted the recom-  inen.da.tioh from the Sechelt  Board of School Trustees that  47 year old John Denley be appointed to the post of Superintendent of Schools for this district. This announcement was  made by the School Board  Thursday. Mr. Denley succeeds  R. R. Hanna who will retire  shortly.  The new superintendent's elementary secondary and teacher training was obtained in  England, and since coming to  this province he has secured  Bachelor and Master degrees  in the field of education. He  has ben a teacher and deputy  headmaster in London, England, teacher, yice-iprincipal  and principal in eleSmentary  and secondary schools in North  Vancouver. Mr. Denley has  served as member and chairman of many committees for  the North Vancouver Teachers'  Association and has acted on  committees of the BCTF. His  participation in community activities in North Vancouver has  been very extensive, alderman,  B.C. Youth Council, Centennial  committee     chairimah,     and  others.  The Department of Education supplied the school board  'with a list* of eight persomts,  some seeking a first appointment as superintendent.' A resume of each one's qualification was .also received. The  board reviewed these names  (carefully and selected four to  be interviewed'. Three of the  four were able to be at the  board office on Monday, April  7, and, accompanied by. board  members, visited schools in the  district. On Monday evening  the trustees, school principals,  president and two members of  the STA met the candidates in  a getting-to-know-you evening.  On Tuesday, the trustees interviewed each of the four candidates in turn, and late in the  afternoon members of the  board began the task of sharing  opinions and making a decision. Mr. Denley was selected.  In order to involve as many  persons', as possible, the board  authorized Dr. Arthur Kratz-  mann of the Faculty of Education, University'.-of Victoria, to  prepare a questionnaire that  ��� was mailed t0 every householder on the Sunshin^fGpast. The  purpose  of the questionnaire  was to obtain an assessment  of the current status, of things  in the schools of this7 district,  and to learn; Whatltihd of peif-:i  son the pubhc believes the new  superintendent should, be.  Over 550 persons responded  to the questionnaire. This far.  exceeds the 10% average most  questionnaires receive byway  of reply. With only one frivolous reply,much time and effort were given by the7people  of the district in completing  the questionnaire. Contrary to  the anticipation of some pebr  pie, every word of every res-  Iponse was read and weighed  in completing the report. The  remarks supplied after every  sub-section were sumiharizedY  The report based on the\ques-l  tionnaire has been of ; great  value to the board and will*  continue t0 be of value. Fur-,  ther, the board made use of  briefs presented by citizen;  groups and the Sechelt Teach-^  ers Association. ������"���-..'%  Copies Of the Kratzniarin re-T  port are available to initerestr  ed citizens and Tmaiy be obtain?  ed by- contacting the school  board offices at7 886-2225. D_4  tails of the repbriwiU be found  foeloiw. "��� .-.��� ��� ��� Y  ' y y  Questionnaire  answers analyzed  This survey was commissioned by the school board of  Sechelt School District. Upon  the advice of the British Cohan  bia School Trustees Associar  tion, the* iauthor of tliis M(EK>rt  was approached and was agreeable to conducting the survey.  A questionnaire was prepared  in draft form, was discussed  with the board at Gibsons, was  modified t0 its final form, and  was distributed to each household in the Sechelt School District. At the time, this report  was finalized, some 485 questionnaires had been completed  and returned. The report is  based only upon the information contained in those returns.  Basically, the questionnaires  covered two areas: an assessment of the current status of  things in the district, and expectations of the tasks to be  performed by the new superintendent and the kind of person needed to fill the position.  These sections were both included because the appointment of a superintendent is a  two-way matter. Assuredly, the  board needs to assess the canr  dictates; but equally as important, the candidates are entitled t0 an assessment of the  board and the district. It was  hqped this survey would, assist in doing this.   .  Fourteen (14) people objected to either the cost, the ob-  tuseness, the irrelevancy, the  difficulty, or the generality of  the questionnaire. Eighteen  went out of their way to commend the board for circulating  it. A considerable.number qual  ified their remarks by indicating they had knowledge of only  one, two, or three schools.  The researcher's time and efforts were donated t0 this project in the interest of community service by the University  of Victoria. Neither was it a  drain on campus resources,  since the work was completed  during evenings and weekends.  With only one exception involving a frivolous reply, all  questionnaires were sincerely  and seriously completed, and  much time and effort were given by the people of the district.  Contrary to   the anticipations  _..��**     -I      W_l  of some people, every word .of  every response received by the  date of writing this report was  read and weighed in completing this documei^YY  The &^  averageY-chiqbl  distri^Y with  an average school board, slightly betted lii-m a  pals, sightly better tfi&averY  age teachers, average etfmwiun-  ity support 'of; schools, average  school programs, and below average relatioi-sl--ips among the  public, the board; the admiri-  istrators and the teachers.;     ' (  The following ��� tMhgSTWere  consideredito be in gobdrshape,/  i.e. more than OOYperceht of  people commenting ori each  item saw it that way. In orden  of positive priority, thiey: are:  The quality of the non-teaching staff (76% P)     '  Bus transportation of pupils  (67% P)  Elementary school program,  Kindergarten to Grade 7 (65%  P)    '. .  Reporting of student progress (6_% P)  The quality of school principals (60% P)  On the other hand; the fol-  lojwing items drew more than  60 percent pf the negative reaction. In order of negative  priority, they are:  School district decision-making procedures (8&% N)  School district evaluation activities (81% N)   .

The following  classifications seem appropriate:  Strong concerns:  Discipline, particularly at the  senior secondary level.  Communications in the district, and particularly between  the board and the total community.  The need for new schools,  classroom space, adequate playgrounds and equipment in general.  The need for an upgrading of  the quality of the teaching  staff.  Moderate concerns:  The secondary school climate,  spirit, morale, and demeanour  of students.  7  The need to improve the  quality of administrators in the  district.  Improvement of guidance  and counselling, services.  Modification of bus transportation,  with the shift system  ^ drawing  allied criticism.  The need for a wider range  of elective subjects at the sec- ,.  onda��y level.  The need for improved long-  term planning and decisionmaking patterns at the school  board and district office level.  Minor concerns:  Evaluation and reporting of  student progress.  Relevance of school curriculum.  Quality of the superintendent.

Power failure  Gibsons and area experienced a power outage Tuesday  morning that lasted for nearly  three hours.  Clocks indicated the power  went off just before 6:30 a.m.  and came back on around 9:30.  Reports stated the cause of  the outage was a broken wire  at the corner of Reed Road and  Highway 101 at Granthams.  Power was out from lower  Gibsons to Langdale.

Harry  presented  his  special  belt to  the Legion so, as he says, his  friends in Gibsons will have  something to remember him by  Grass fires  are menacing  Gibsons Volunteer Hre Department has been putting out  a rash of grass fires in the last  week most caused by careless  burning.  Saturday afternoon a fire  was put out near the residence  of John Hind-Simith on Highway 101. Sunday afternoon at  approximately 12:30 the alarm  was called for a grass fire in  Granthams Landing. Another  alarm Tuesday afternoon was  for a grass fire at the corner  of Martin Road and Highway  101. This was apparently started accidentally by a discarded  cigarette butt.  Fire Chief Dick Ranniger  strongly reminds all people  burning grass to keep a garden  hose handy and not to burn on  windy days. Recent dry weather is causing considerable  fire hazard conditions. Starting  May 1 all-burning must require  a fire permit.  Gospel group  returns again  A gospel group that visited  Gibsons last month and proved  popular is making a return  visit.

The music group, composed  of- about 12 people, has excellent equipment and produces  very good sound, according to  audienlce members who heard  the group in March.  The group is affiliated with  the Open Bible Chapel in Vancouver under the pastorship of  Mel Davis.  Strom is Winner  Gibsons resident C. Strom  won $100 last week in the  Lions 400 club draw.

Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons, BX  The Questionnaire!  The survey concerning the appointment of a district  superintendent of schools, held in this school district,  really uncovered nothing not already known. The number who responded to the survey, about 525, equalled  the number who usually vote on school referenda.  The questionnaire when sent out was described as  the first step in the board's policy of seeking involvement of the public in school matters. Replies to the  questionnaire supplied mostly information already  known to the board based on past public performances.  Some information not known definitely, was well suspected.  The summary to the report finds that while a number of persons were afraid the survey would be an exercise in futility in that results would not be rfcakeh seriously, the great majority (out of 518 replies) saw it as the  sincere effort of the board to secure community input.  The summary then goes on to relate that this school  district should seek a fairly young, vigorous superintendent. Not many of the choices are what one could designate as young because superintendents are invariably  older, experienced candidates.  The researcher, Dr. Arthur Kratzman of the faculty  of education, Victoria University, noted that his time  and efforts were donated in the interests of community  service by the university. The entire report is an inter-  estingjiocument but where the 70% negative relationships originated is a matter over which one should ponder. '     ��� '       '  Not too much fun  Federal Finance Minister John Turner has put his  finger on one problem the industrial world has, when it  has to compete with non-industrial wage settlements  which affect industrial wages.  Here is what he said in his statement to the First  Ministers' conference last week: "Settlements for government employees, teachers and other service employees exert an upward pull on settlements in the manufacturing industries..." rs  These he said run even higher than in the manufacturing industries. It's no fun being a finance minister  these days with salary competition adding to the difficulty of keeping an economy in balance.  5 to 25 years ago  Five   Years   Ago  The Regional District board  is seeking to get its water system financing within scope of  the new Municipal Finance act.

One of the most historic  North American art exhibitions of the 20th Century 'has  been organized by Rifchard  iSdmmins, director of the Art  Gallery of Greater Vasotonia.  It will be the first major exhibition of stone sculpture of  British Columbia and it looks  at stone images which stretch  back over 3,000 years as art  objects, rather than archaeological artifacts. The exhibition  contains 136 works of art,  most of which were created  before white contact. The bulk  of the material seems to be  dated between 1,000 B.C. and  H,800 A.D.  The show brings together  the team which was responsible for another history making exhibition, for Mr. Sim-  mins invited antihro(pologist  Wilson Duff to act as professional consultant on the project  The present Images sho)w  has taken two years to organize. It was inspired by the Sechelt _m!age which Simimins  viewed at "Vancouver's Centen.  nial Museum, and which he  recognized as a great work of  art.

Long before the white man  caime to these shores, the Indians had established out of for  mer feuding factions that cooperative brotherhood known  as the "Six Nations Confederacy". We might humbly approach the descendants of thlat  noble people to request that the  leadership of our society be invited to their longhouse at Oh-  sweken to learn from them the  secret of a humane creative  culture.  As the son of a former missionary living on that Six Nations Indian reservation near  Brantford,. Ontario, I wias recently asked to return to Oh-  sweken to condujet the funeral  of a most remarkable (Christian  woman who had been my teacher in 'grade eight. And standing by her graveside, I'd recalled Miss Janeson's question  asked of me several years before, during a preaching mission she had "chaired" in that  community: "Kennjy, how is it  that before the white man  came with their Bible and their  bottle, we Indians worshipped  'the Great Sprit'. We didn't  worship the things He had created, but we worshipped Him,  the Creator arid iSustainer of  everything. I think our religion was better before the  white man came, than most  white man's religion is today  in Canada. You worship things  and are destroyinig yourself by  your secular materialism.".  Surely this nation which  could rise in a igreat national  purpose to meet the challenge  of Hitlers murderous international intentions can rouse  itself again to wrest the control of the country from this  fresh    fwiave    of    barbarians  LEGAL  NOTICE TO CREDITORS  Estate of the deceased: Elizabeth Ann SERGEANT Jate of  1789 Martin Rd., Gibsons, B.C.

A  skilled photographer and researcher, sh_ wfas more than  qualified to conduct the survey  and photograph tihe stone  sculptures.  The survey involved many  months of seardhdng through  storage areas in museums from  Victoria1 to Lytton, Vancouver  to Montre'al, Seattle to Washington, D.C, with the ultimate  goal'of finding singular images  From this survey the selection  was made for the exhibition  content.  Many startling discoveries  were made as a result of this  intensive effort. The sholw  brings togetfiier two powerful  stone masks which are obvious  ly the work of the same artist.

The only difference between  the  two   masks,   a  ddfferience  which    contributes    to    their  ' mystery   and   intense   symbolism, is that in one the eyes  are closed while in the other  they axe open.

In their next game Gibsons  faced Richmond in a scrappy  contest wihich saw theim overpower the opposition 22 to  0.  The Portland Rugby club provided Gibsons next test. Portland came out charging and  with their fast moving and  hard hitting style they were  able to physically whip Gibsons 24 to 4. This loss placed  Gibsons    in    the    consolation  Gibsons final game on Saturday was against Agrarians pf  Vancouver Island. In this game  Gibsons stormed to a 42 to 0  victory behind the fine passing  and running of the three-line  and an inspirational try by  prop . Jim Peers. '  Sunday morning Gibsons faced Abbotsford and defeated  them 7 to 3. This was an even,  ly played game that could have  gone either way. Both teams  played a good, hard brand of  rugby and Gibsons was fortunate enough to come out ahead.  Gibsons now advanced t0 the  finals of the consolation round  against Old Puget Sbund. They  gave it their best effort but  were unable to crack the opposition's defence except for one  penalty kick and ended up losing 7 to 3.  .Saturday in a league game,  Gibsons will play first place  Meralomas at Langdale Elementary   School   field.

What can you say  about a play where the redeeming character ��� the potential saint ��� loses his head.  Literally chopped off by some  diabolical guard whose treacherous eyes alone indicate the  'frustrations built up and up  after standing still for an hour  or more. Standing still and  watching a delicate young princess perfonm an _erotiic dance  to please the bombastic and  lecherous King Herod.  Actually, our evil guard is  only at the bottom end of what  is politically known as passing  the buck. He is ordered by Herod (Bill Macomiber) to chop off  Jokanaan's (John Burnside)  head, and Herod, in turn, has  fallen into the trap set up by  the beautiful young princess  Salome.  Herod should have known  that young princesses always  set up nefarious deals but the  guy has a lousy memory. Example: "Bring me . . . what is  it I desire? I forget." he says  t0 a servant.  Anylway, what happens is  that the lascivious lush, King  Herod, has grown weary of  his sour-tempered second-hand  queen (played by Joan Mar-  Shall) and feasts eyes on the  gentle virgin princess. Herod's  betrothed keeps echoing the  usual complaint: "You look too  much at her," but regardless,  the king asks his step-daughter  to dance, giving her anything  her heart desires as a reward.  The girl dances alright, to  the disgust and jealousy of her  mother, and then demands her  reward: Jokanaan's head on a  silver  platter.  Jokanaan is the resident  philosopher, sooth - sayer,  doomsday freak in chains and  a very genuine and moving  tragi-coimic scene occurs when  Langdale seeks  kindergarten  Langdale parents want their  kindergarten  baiek.   A  delega-:  tion led by Nadine Gazeley told  school trustees Thursday night  that there are  16 children in  Langdale of kindergarten age  and that these kids should not  be made to travel to Gibsons.  Mrs.   Gazeley   criticized  the  Gibsons  kindergarten  as having   poor  lighting   conditions,  poor    ventilation    and    being  overcrowded.    She   als0   said  there was a danger to the children who stand along the high-  ��� way unsupervised to wait for  a bus.  Alternatively, a kindergarten class at Lanigdale Elementary would be more suitable  because of location, smaller  class size, and belcause the  child would benefit from attending the same school that  he or she would later be attending in elementary grades,  Mrs. Gazeley said.  Langdale did have a kindergarten last year but it was relocated to Roberts Creek. Superintendent R. R. Hanna explained   that   the   move   was  made because there were not  enough students in the Langdale area. He added that with  the required  number  of children,   he  assumes  there  will  be a Mndergiariten next year.  Secretary-treasurer Roy Mills  indicated   there   would   be   a  considerable increase in costs  to operate the kindergarten out  of Langdale.  The matter was referred to  the building and grounds committee for further discussion.  Herod tries to persuade the  princess to take half of his  kingdom or his biggest emerald ��� anything but Jokanaan's  head.  "I beg you, ask not this of  me." Herod pleads because he  believes the old sage to be  sacrosanct and previous evil  omens have warned him of an  impending death ���- his own,  maybe.  But Salome insists the king  keep his word. She wants Jokanaan's head to fulfill her  own vtoiw to kiss the sacred  lips, the kiss being only lip  service, as it were, to a much  deeper stirring of divine love.  When she holds Jokanaan's  head and kisses it, she realizes  indeed that love has a bitter  taste.  That's a bit of the story, as  for the cast, my nomination  goes to Bill Macomiber for his  superb characterization of the  egotistical Herod. Macomber  manages to catch the nuances  of pathos, tragedy, and satire  to create a vulnerable licentious king that doesn't quite fit  into his sublime position. I'm  not aware of Macomber's theatrical background but the guy  is a natural on stage.  Manuane Laplante as Salome  carried her role well although  her acting talents did not surface as well as in her previous  role as the vigorous Mrs. Toop  in Pools Paradise put on last  November by the Driftwood  group. The character of the  delicate princess was overshadowed by both Herod and Jokanaan except for a very vis  ceral scene near the end when  she holds Jokanaan's decapitated head and experiences her  catharsis.  As for John Burnside in his  role of the fanatic Jokanaan,  he doesnt' even have to try. A  natural for the role. I've seen  John iri the Legion acting as  himself, and the lanky frame,  the electric hair, and a vehement rage, I thought, so help  me, it was the end of the wrold  Credits also go to John for direction of the Oscar Wilde  play.  Other mention must go to  Joan Marshall who was strong  and consistent in the role of  the dour Queen Herodias. Costumes by Nest Lewis were superb. Music adapted from Richard Strauss' opera and performed by Ken Dalgliesh and  his group provided an extra  dimension.  Incidentally, Burnside's booming voice predicting the doomi  trembled the walls Of the old  Twilight, as I'm sure it did  many of the people inside.  What I want to say is the  acoustics of the theatre are  much, much better than the  gymnasiums of the past where  voices only echoed into basketball hoops instead of audiences'  ears.  Go see the play. A rich mixture of satire and seriousness.  Don't expect the Vancouver  Playhouse but expect a lot.  Plays Friday 9:30 p.m. at the  Twilight.

Coast News April 16 1975     7  DID YOU KNOW?  Every time the population  Of Canada increases by 1,000,  hundreds of acres of agricultural land are lost t0 urban  develojpment.  Agriculture   Canada   is   in-  Tl  More than 7,000,000  canadians  Now see TV by Cable  JL  885-2444  volved in a federal-provincial  effort to accurately assess the  prime farmland losses and  evaluate these losses in terms  of food producton.  Estimates : indicate that if  Canada's growth pattern remains constant, (a 35 million  population is predicted by the  year 2,000), 6.5 \million acres  of the best cultivated soil will  be lost to urban development.  This would leave 17.5 million  acres of Class 1 soil under cultivation instead of the present  24 million.  Credit unions have played  an important role in rural Canada, says Agriculture Minister  Eugene Whelan.  Arm-in-arm with the cooperative movement, credit unions have helped Canadian agriculture to prosper, he says.  Mr. Whelan comments on the  75th anniversary of the founding of Canada's first credit  union. In 1900, Alphonse Des-  jardins started a 'caisse pbp-  ulaire' in Levis, Que. That  credit union, still in operation^  was the first in North America.  There is a very simple approximation to the rule which  allows conversions to be made  easily and gives temperatures  which are correct to one or  two degrees (C) in the temperature ranges which we all  experience.  It is: Fahrenheit to-Celsius:  subtract 30 and divide by 2;  Celsius to Fahrenheit���-multiply by tlwo and add 30. By  this rule 70 degrees F becomes  20 C instead of 21,1.

The Crown said Russell  Clark assaulted Watson in the  -ISechelt Legion April 27, 1974,  during an altercation that involved Sechelt contractor Henry Hall. Watson received a concussion, broken facial bones,  and damage to his eyesight.  Watson, 60, testified Thursday Clark had started an argument in the Legion over the  building of the Sechelt breakwater. 'Clark took exception  that I built the breakwater  when he built it. That's true in  <a physical sense but I didn't  even know he was working on  it," Watson said. "Clark felt  I was getting unjust credit."  ^iWatson added that Clark  felt that way about his involvement in the building of the  ISechelt arena.  Watson said the debate became quite heated, and when  Henry Hall, who wtas at the  same table, put his hand; on  Clark asking him to leave, both  Hall and Clark fell to the  floor.  A confrontation then took  plaice between Hall and Clark  and when that ended Clark  went to the bar and took his  s(weater and watch off.  "I turned around to see  where my wife was~��� there  wias pandemonium by now ���  and I was hit by Mr. Clark and  knocked to the floor," Watson  testified.  However, cocktail waitress  Katherine Charlton, who was  on duty that evening, testified  that Clark came to the bar and  took his sweater and watch  off and then "went towards the  table and all of a sudden I  saw a man on the" floor."  Before handing down his  guilty verdict, Judge J. S. P.  Johnson said the evidence presented two completely different stories ��� one indicated  comiplete acquittal and in the  other there's no doubt of guilt.  "The key evidence was given by the waitress Katherine  Charleton who was called by  the defence," the judge said.  He said her testimony was  more consistent with evidence  of the crown, and the other defence witnesses were not certain of exactly what happened.  The condition of the two year  suspended sentenlee is that  Clark be of good behavior.  "You've had a clear record  up to now and there should be  no problem. I treat it ais an  isolated incident in which you.  lost your temper," Judge Johnson told Clark.  Defence lawyer Del Black indicated he would -appeal the  judge's decision.

I did not say  that, "Most people in society  can be bought." This is, I suppose, a hazard, when many  statements are reduced to a  few for the purpose of brevity.  What I did say, was that in  my law class at the school, I  asked my students the question, "Can they be bought?" I  then gave them an example. I  told them, if they were given  one million dollars to smash up  a car, no questions asked,  would they do it? Almost all  indicated they would, even  though they knew that smashing up that car was an illegalK  act. Many indicated that they  could do it for a few hundred  dollars, even if they knejw the  car had been used for some illegal purpose.  I have since asked this question in my economics class.  There I put the proposal to  them in a different way, asking them if they had a house  and someone offered them a  higher than market price for it,  because they were going t0 use  it for some illegal purpose,  how many of them would turn  their heads the other way and  accept the money even though  the person was going t0 use it  for an illegal purpose. Since I  had already given them the  lesson on morality in advance,  using the earlier class as an  example, the results were not  nearly so positive, but many  still indicated they would be  willing to participate in the  deal.  The moral I was trying to  teaich is that it does not require a lot of people willing to  do the illegal act, only a lot  who wtould look the other way  ���while someone else does it. Ait  the Justice Council meeting, I  then stated that it is this type  of thinking which creates a  Nixon.  ���HARRY TURNER  Editor: Don't look now' but  B.C's "welfare state" is rapidly becoming the "farewell  state" with business, industry,  capital and labour "voting with  its feet" and escaping with  their tools to free enterprise  areas.

Patricia  Young  Editor: On behalf of the  British Columbia UNICEF  committee, I wish to thank  you for your much needed support of fund-raising campaigns  in 1974.  This past year the people of  British  Columbia  have   again  demonstrated such concern by  contributing $270,000.00 to UNICEF, through Hallowe'en collections and the sales of greeting cards. The success of these  campaigns depended on the ef-.  (forts   of   volunteers   all  over  the     province1    from     school '  children to senior citizens; the  kind support of many business  enterprises   and  the  generous  assistance of the press, radio  and  television  media.-   Gloria  Hayter (Mrs. R_A.)

Johnson  told him if he was going to be ,  drunk and wave a. knife  around it wtould be best if he  didn't drink anymore.  rflhe court was told Joe entered the beer parlour of the Pender Harbour Hotel and on two  different occasions waved his  knife around and demanded a  drink]  Joe explained he had found  the prohibited weapon on the  beach while shucking oysters  and he didn't realize it was illegal to flash the knife. He said  he had been drinking all day.  Another condition of Joe's  discharge will be' that he not  be intoxicated for a period of  one year.  Lloyd Sha-ipe was fined $50  and prohibited from driving  ���for two years when found  iguilty of impaired driving. RC-.  M1P report stated Sharpe'�� vehicle was spotted in Gibsons  Marjch 17 operating without a  tail light plus a flat rear tire,.  Sharpe was stopped on Gower  Point Road and driven to the  Sechelt detachment where he  refused to take a breathalizer  test.  Sharpe told Judge Johnson  he had been at the garbage  dump when he sufif ��red a heart  attaick and he had to take  heavy drugs. He said he asked  the police to take him to the  hospital but they wouldn't. He  did not inform the RCMP he  had just suffered a heart attack.  Hugh TreSfry, 10, was fined  $50 and prohibited from driving for six months when he  pleaded guilty to driving with  a blood-alcohol content over  .08%. The charge arose from  an incident April 8 in Gibsons  when ROMP spotted him angling his vehicle from shoulder  to shoulder on higrwiay 101.  Roy Figler, formerly of Gib-  y sons and now living in Duncan,  was given one year suspended  sentence and ordered to pay  $425 restitution to Pawiiuk  Investments after he was  found guilty of false pretenses.  Figler had. written a number  of cheques totalling $425 to  Pawliuk Investments, at that  time oiwners of the Perririsula  HoteL Bank records indicate  there was a continual oveaxlraft  on Filglers account when the  cheques were wtritten betsween  January 14 and February 17,  1974.  When Figler said he believed  there was money in the account to cover the cheques,  Judge Johnson asked, "How  ban you think your cheques  were good when you were over  dralwn by $400?"  Conditions of Figler's suspended sentence are that he  be regularly employed, that he  report to a probation officer  monthly in, Duncan, and that  he pay restitution to Pawliuk  Iiwestanents.  Christopher Julian of Sechelt received a one year suspended sentence for breach of  probation. Julian had been  placed' under probation earlier  for charges of theft under $200  and put on interdiction prohibiting him from consuming al-  icohol. Netw probation orders  Julian to be steadily employed  and attend an alcoholic treatment centre.  Have you seen the new Por  noise Bay Post Card?
