Committee of 9 sought  for expansion problem  A committee of not more  than nine individuals selected  frdm present elected jurisddic-  tions was advised for area officials at a meeting Monday  night in Roberts Creek Community Hall, to discuss opening  phases of the proposed municipal expansion on the Sunshine Coast.  The   advice   was   given   by  Chris Woodward, associate  deputy minister of the department of municipal affairs. He  opened tlie meeting, which 35  attended from all areas between Port- Mellon and Pender Harbour.  Mr. Woodward suggested var  ious> ways the proposal could  be handle but "left it to the  meeting to explore all possi-  Three R's under scrutiny  Recent publicity on the virtues of getting back to the  more traditional teaching meth  ods has caused the school  board to take a close look at  the performances of local  students.

Jean Sauve reads as follows:  "We strongly .object, to the  federal government decision to  abandon. the search for the  chorine tanks lost in Mala-  spLoa Strait on Feb. 19, 1975.  We recommend in the best in-,  terests of the people and environment of the province that  the seartch be continued until  the chlorine tanks have been  located and the hazard fully  determined.''  Housing plan  draws objections  A few people around Skyline Drive are not happy with  the proposed 12 unit town-  house project on .Gibsons bluff.  A public hearing last week  brought several objections to  the development including potential tra_Kic hazards, creation  of a high density zone on the  bluff, and the creation of a  slum area.  One person stated he did not  want a playground in the area'  and another told council members he didn't want to share  the public beach.  Application to build the 12 _  two and three bedrooim units  was made to council last November  by Main   Home   Improvements of Vahlcouver.  Alderman Stuart Metcalfe,  head of the planning committee, said at that time the development wiould not normally be an asset to the area but  in this case all the planning  compliances had been met.  The complex will not obstruct any views and stresses  the availability of recreational  facilities and retention of evergreens.  bask?'subjects, reading, writing  and arithmetic.  Sfpelling and reading tests  were conducted on different  classes by George Cooper, supervisor of elementary education, and Vlirginia - Douglas,  Elphinstone remedial reading  teachers. Their reports to the  board indicated' that students  were not generally less proficient in these subjects than  other students in the province,  although Mrs. Douglas did indicate that her results wjere  correlated with results of 16  years ago. ��  She stressed the importance  of reading proficiency in high  schools because'^without teach  ing reading skills we are guaranteeing failure for a number  of students, and limited success for others."  Les Peterson, a literature  Tteacbef at Elphinstone, asked  trustees if they intended to  make changes locally, to make  recommendations to the depart  ment of education, or whether  the testing and discussions,,  were merely for informational  purposes.  "If we are going to do something we must do it ourselves  because we're not going to be  directed to forthwith changes  from the department tomorrow,". Mr. Peterson stated.,-  Trustee Agnes Labonte said  the board only wanted to be  assured that standards in this  school district were being kept  up. She said the board's concern resulted directly frjom  the recent publicity on this  topic.  Doris Fuller* librarian at  Gibsons Elementary, felt that  students were capable of much  more than parents and teachers  expected of them. She said that  students weren't taking pride  in their-work and they weren't  accepting the responsatolity for  learning.  "They want to fade into the  woodwork - they all want to  be average," Mrs. Fuller told  the discussion group.  Several parents voiced the  opinion their children were  not proficient at the basic  skills and implied either the  teachers or the; ciriculuim w|_s  at fault.  A grade five teacher at Roberts Creek Elementary said the  major problem was a lack of  supervision in the district. He'  said he had no philosophies to  go by and the ciriculum guide  set by the department of edu^  cation was too vague. He added that both teachers and students did not know wher they  were headed.  One member of the group  said 7 it was impossible to have  all the answers for all the  people. She pointed' out that  the old education system 15  years ago didn't have all the.  answers and today's permis-'  siveness doesn't have all the  answers.' She suggested that  board, parents and teachers  work together to make the best  of both possible worlds.  bilities before making up its  mind.  Mr. Woodward urged avoid-  * ance of a large unwieldy committee. The meeting was of the  same opinion.  There was a suggestion that  the chairman of that committee should be a neutral person,  possibly invited into' the area  from an outside source. Mr,,  Woodward maintained the com*  mittee should be made.up of  elected, officials of local elective organizations.  .The meeting which was originally i called to be held in  Gibsons United Church by Gibsons Council was moved at the  suggestion of the Regional  District board to Roberts Creek  which was regarded more central  Tlhe speakers from the floor  asked varied questions of Mr.  Woodward but his general  trend was to throw the onus  back onto area officials. He did  say that the department would  have men available to the committee arid that there would be  one departmental official work  ing with the committee all the  time. There was to be some!  costs involved but he said these  would be assumed by the de- 7  partment.  Mr.   Woodward   argued   it ,  could be a district irom Port  - Mt&otrt&is&^Ko  a district vof the whole Sunshine Coast. It would be up to  the committee to make its decision but he added as a conclusion, the minister will have  the final choice.  Memlbers attended from the  Regional Board, Gibsons. and  Sechelt councils and the various' water boards and other  local government boards scattered from Port Mellon to Jervis Inlet. Both mayors were  present also the chairman of  the Regional District board  along with members of their  councils.  A member from Pender Harbour area, on the subject of  the areas being heard from,  clearly stated that "Pender  Harbour would be heard from."  He did not amplify the intention of the remark.    -  _�� r*  .1     /"<*���#����.��*-     HntnAlt     -"^llOf-O  J.ICX   S^-CW���    ucuiuil   V/OIUUM  in preparation for pole removal  project along % mile stretfch  of highway at Davfe %J$p_.;  Rather than replace older poles  along the route, the company  to place cables on the  opposite side of the road and  eliminate the. beach-side pole  line entirely.  $86,000 for Gibsons phones  ^T>*3Ph_ :,fiC' Telephone Company has announced this year's  plans to keep pace with continuing business and residential development in the Sunshine Coast area.    ~  District manager Brain Bag-  ley said a $1,218 million program to expand and improve  telephone services on the Sunshine Coast is part of a massive, two-year, half-billion dollar program of capital construction throughout B.C.

Flood bylaw  unnecessary!  Gibsons aldermen are telling  Gibsons residents not to get  upset" about any provincial  flood regulations that restrict  anyone from building within  a certain distance from the  high wiater mark.  Un reacting to a concerned  resident Tuesday night council decided to write the deputy  minister concerned! and tell  him that the village is in no  danger of flooding, and that  flood regulations will - not become part of village bylaws.  Municipal clerk Jack Copland told council his investi-  'gations hald revealed no actual  legislation concerning the  flood regulations. He said the  flood control stipulations came  from a provincial government  circular issued in 1973. The  circular only recommended  that flood control regulations  be incorporated into municipal  and regional bylaws.  "If it isn't a statute then we  don't have to incorporate it  into our bylaws," acting Mayor  Kurt Hoehne told couneiL  Gibsons should be ashamed  of itself.  This was the feeling voiced  by Chairman Victor Eckstein  at Monday night's meeting of  Gibsons Voters Association.  Eckstein was referring to the  fact Gibsons Voters Association was not accomplishing  anything because pf a lack of  members while the Pender Har  bour association had as many  as 350 active members.  With only nine members .at  Monday night's meeting the  chairman suggested the organization ibecome dormant for a  whilewith the present executive acting as caretakers. He  felt the organization could become active again as local issues demanded it.  "It's a waste of time for ev-  eryfbodjy as we're going now,"  Eckstein said.  Bill Edney, an association  member and owner of Ken's  Lucky Dollar Food store said  the ratepayers organization  should become a dynamic organization and the village could  not afford to put it on the shelf  Edney suggested an active  membership drive tp involve  more people, especially the  young. He said there were a  lot of issues in the village and  they must be kept before the  people to keep everyone informed of What is happening.  He cited several problems such  as the wharf, parking, and high  village  land prices  as issues  that the group should be actively involved in.  Referring specifically to the  wharf, Edney said it was "a  stinking mess down there now"  and it was up to the ratefpay-  ers to pressure council to install better facilities.  In an effort to obtain more  members the organization will  conduct an active membership  drive to bring the number to  200-300. Ihe present paid  membership totals 58 paid mem  bers with an average of 30 attending each meeting.  Next meeting will be in May  to elect a new executive and  set new goals for the organization.  To honor Inglis  The public will have its opportunity Sunday afternoon to  honor Dr. H. F. Inglis on his  retirement as a doctor in this  area. .  This, opportunity will take  place starting at 2:00 p.m. in  Gibsons Legion Hall Where the  doctor will be on hand to take  part, in the ceremonies.  There will be speeches, short  ones, and a presentation. Refreshments in the form of tea  and coffee will be available.  Mayor Larry Labonte and  members of council who organized the function, will be present along with other officials  well known to Dr. Inglis.  further $807,000 for new central office Switching," said  Mr. Bagley. "This is the complex technical equipment need  ed to process and route the  growing volume of local and  long distance calls to and from  this area."  He said the largest single  expenditure the company has  listed for the Gibsons district  this year is $461,000 for additional long distance circuits be  tween here and Vancouver.  "Further spending next year  on this job will bring the total  cost to $563,000 before the project is completed in May, 1976,"  he added. Present circuits, are  being added to in another $156,  000 project.  "Here in Gibsons," said Mr.  Bagley, "about $86,000 is needed this year for central office  switching equipment to expand  the capacity of the office to  handle anticipated growth up  to 1978." This work is scheduled for completion by October  "In Sedhelt, we'll be spending $78,000 this year in the  completion of a $219,000 project in which we've added a  910-square-foot addition to our  exchange buiding- and are adding extensive additions of  equipment," he said.  Another $336,000 will have  been spent by June on the  placing of additional telephone  Circuits linking Sechelt and  Pender Harbour. "We're using  both buried and aerial cables  to carry these circuits between  the communities." said Mr.  -Bagley'.  "New central office gear  required in Pender Harbour  will cost $13,000," he said, "and  another $13,000 has been spent  to complete the installation  of additional telephone circuits serving Earl's Cove, Egmont, and the Kleindale district.  'In addition to the specific  capital works projects outlined  by Mr. Bagley, B.C. Tel will  spend an estimated $238,000  during the year for the purchase and installation of customer equipment for business  and residential subscribers.

The major concern at last week's meeting in the  Roberts Creek Elementary school was whether or not  the school system has gone too far in the permissive, attitudes of education thereby producing a number of inferior students who are weak in reading, writing, and  arithmetic.  The entire discussion was probably best punctuated  by one person's comments when she said it was impossible to satisfy everyone. Fifteen years _go when schools  operated strictly according to the three Es there wasun-  happiness with results. A more flexible, permissive system was needed, everyone said.  Now we're reacting to the reaction of 15 years ago.  Back to, the basics. More discipline. Get your spellers  out.'  YTf trustees are willing to slacken the lines between  1_iemselves and the Department of Education, and follow  their own philosophies, it must be remembered the key  word in (today's society is change. Nothing is constant  today except constant change.  TEducation is sjmdnymous with life and any kind of  a %uccess_uF existence today is probably related to the  ability to adapt to one's environment ��� both in the physical and temporal sense.  To create an education system, from the best of both  possible worlds ���- the permissive and the structured ���  is a good general philosophy. But just^as life is in a constant state of flux so must be the education system.  What was good .yesterday is not necessarily good today,  and what is good today is not necessarily good for tomorrow.  The school board and the Department of Education  should not strive for one final Utopian ideal and tell everyone that this is the answer. Keep a close tab on the  flaws and keep patching.  Bounds of respect  Perspective on today's United States and Canadiari  monetary and labor troubles takes, us back to the 1930  era when President Roosevelt -in Washington abandoned  the gold, standard for the United States plus the emergence of a labor leader named John L. Lewis.  With the aid of Roosevelt's progressive labor legislation Lewis stirred the somewhat lethargic labor movement into a dynamic force which has forged itself into  aii extremely powerful unit on the political scene.  Canadian labor has benefitted greatly from the upsurge of power and Canadians have also suffered as the  result of the abandonment of the gold standard.  However, has labor missed the boat by ihejping to  increase inflation therefore placing itself in the position of facing strictures on its present demands on what  the economy should do for them? Canada's Prime Minister  has beeh reluctant to take any determined action against  labor's demands but in view of the rabidly increasing  size of the demands which are only increasing the inlfla-  tionary drive, will he face up to the growing crisis?       ,  Labor since the 1930s has been militant but is its  militance breaking through the bounds of respect, turn-  ing the populace to demands for reasonableness?  5 to 25 years ago  .

WYNGAERT  Perhaps to the younger generation of to-day, Feb. 28, 1975.  presented nothing of significant' value. But to the older  folk it served as a remember-  anoe of an amicable relationship with a professional man  which had been theirs to enjoy for many years.  We are speaking of Doctor  Hugh Inglis; and by choice,  Feb. 28 climaxed his professional services. His thoughts  now focussed to those retirement years that he would  share with his wife Margaret.  But to a few of us. a very  few indeed this decision of retirement presents something of  mudh more significant value.  It goes beyond singling put  one person: it embraces a  family, and one of pioneer  stock.  Rev. Frederick Inglis, M.D.,  and his'dear wife, had known  of sacrificial services on two  frontiers: the second a more  lasting period, and certainly  less isolated. Their first, shortly following the turn of the  century, where the head of  , this distinguished family assumed a twofold responsibility, that of missionary and  medical doctor, wias an occasion where husband and wife  were indeed subjected to the  extreme test.  An ; extremely  isolated portion of the Cassaar District, including   a .large   portion   of  northern     British    Columbia,  was the area in general. Telegraph Creek,  a small village  .  of  200   inhabitants,   with  the  majority comprised of Indians,  was the chief point on the Sti-  kine   River.   T\his   is 7 approximately ISO miles from its outlet. The natives were Tahlton  tndians, a branch of the Thlin-  ket tribe. Telegraph Creek at  that  time had approximately  30 whites. Of this number only  six  wiere  women.  Mining,   of  course, was the chief industry.  The mission that was to be  under the supervision of Rev. ,  F.  Inglis commenced Sunday,  May 28, 1905. It was a testing  ground to be sure. Bey. Inglis  stunmed  it  up 'briefly:   "This?  is a tough joint." It certainly  portrayed  all  resemblance  of  toughness that Sunday morning; no church, ho slchool, no  hospital, no public intituitions...  of any kind, other than threje y  saloons realizing good business.  Rey. and Mrs. Inglis were extended permission to use one  of the local Jstores that morning to hold a service.  "As the service  was  about  to begin," quoted Rev. Inglis,"1  a man came lip to me and ask- 7  ed if I were tunning things. '���<:���  I advised him that I was."  -"Then  said he,  as  he  produced a large stone demijohn,"  'give  me a couple gallons of  old  rye"  The man  indicated  a rather dazed look on suddenly noticing the rather orderly Y  fashion in which people were  seated. He realized that he was  not   conversing   with   a   new  cleric  Leaving his jug as ex-  claini-utions oif some sort were'  heard, the stranger took leave.  Nevertheless,     during     the  Inglis' stay at Telegraph Creek  they did succeed by way of  gafemts,   local   assistance   and  hard labor,   manage  to  esitab-  evidently had an effect, on the  consumption of liquor, for the  saloons   dwindled   in   number,  to one by 1908. The prayer of  Rev. Frederick Inglis,"'M.D. and  his devoted wife in thait year  of. 1913  as  they  prepared  to  move to Gibson's Landing was  that, "to those who,were privi-  ledlged to so work might be  strengthened'    to     do     better  things so that, 'the righteous-.

For the benefit ol  the reader, the doctor's territory included all islands of  Howe Sound, and commencing  from a point beyond Port Mellon, at McNabb Creek, and  westward to Egmont, neces-  sitaiting traversing through the  Skookum Chuck. Travel in the  main was by motor launch, or  either.on foot or riding Paddie,  a saddle horse.  To reach a patient often necessitated travel over abandoned,  skid roads, trail, or through  other rancher's property.  On two occasions in 1920 the  doctor climbed our local mountain range to. the green timber  line at base of Mourit Elphinstone to render service to a  Japanese family, who were engaged in cutting shingle bolts.  The mode of -travel eventually gave way ,to use of a motorcycle, and many years later to  a model T. Ford. It was a happy day for this father .of six  children when his hopes for  more .more more more more  ness that exalteth a nation  may come even unto Telegraph  Creek."  lish a tiny hospital, as well as  a small church.

The final 6__.ee visit-with Dr.  Hugh Inglis was Feb. 26. A few  of us refered to him as Doctor  Hugh.

In extending a hand in ap  preciation for services rendered, the situation was so diverse from; doctors who come  and go within a given area or  town. It was not a good-bye;  perhaps an au revoir. For in  parting, the writer's thoughts  Were not necessarily confined  to the one individual, but  rather to a family. Indeed, one  could climax with' the words,  "a family to remember."

The fancy baking served at  the tea was, made by the girls  under the supervision .of  Guides Kay Owen, ;-Eleanor  Wolverton and Sharon Wtebber.  Mrs. Breu and Mra Butler  poured tea for the occasion,  and the girls served.  'Prior to the tea, Rev. Fred  Schiinke of the Leprosy! Mission, showed a set of slides on  the wbrfc of the mission. A  number of the pictures were  those taken- by Rev., Schimke  when he visited the Far east  ; Gail Wolverton, on behalf of  the girls, presented Rev.  Schimke with a large bag of  used postage stamps. Monies  realized from the sale of used  stamps go to relieve the suffering of lepers, and Rev.  Sfehimke reminded the group  that $10 given to the Leprosy  Mission will buy enough medicine to treat ten lepers for one  year..  A beautiful display of handwork, made by the lepers' in  Leper Hospitals,  was on  dis-  ��� play.' ���'  Pioneer Girls Club is looking  forwiard to a Celebration Sunday, which will be held at 7  p.m. April 13. All parents of  the girls, and friends, .are invited. T-ie Celebration Service  will take place at Calvary Baptist Church, with Pioneer Girls  from Bethel Baptist, Sechelt,  and Calvary Baptist, Gibsons,  Basically hams fall into two  categories, those that need  cooking before you serve them,  and those ��� that don't. A ham  marked ready to serve Or fully  cooked can be served without  further cooking. The flavor  is -better though, if you heat  it at 325 F. until the internal  temperature reaidbes 140 F.  This takes about 10 to 15 minutes per pound. Other hams be  labelled cook and serve or cook  before eating.  Those must be  cooked in a 325 F. oven to an  internal temperature of 170 F.  A true nam is; one that  conies from the hind leg of the  hog. It has been cured and  smoked. Curing is done by  artery pumping. The brine is  injected into the artery' to penetrate the meat. Hams are then  drained and smoked. Sinoking  gives the distinctive flavor.  A ham may beisold whole or  cut in haM or even quartered.  Slices may be cut out of; the  centre and sold as" ham slices  or ham steaks. The shank half,  or lower part of the ham, has  a smaller proportion of meat to  bone and may cost less per  pound than the butt half, the  upper portion of the leg.  , Upon purte-iasing allow %  to % pound per serving for  boneless ham and % to %  pound for bone-in ham. As  soon as possible, store the ham,  loosely covered, in the coldest  part of your refrigerator and  use within a week Moist canned  hams should be stored in the  refrigerator 'until, used. Check  the label. Because cured and  smoked meats deteriorate rapidly in flavor when frozen, it  is recommended that they be  frozen no longer than two  months.  Ready-fto-eat ham steaks are  gaining in popularity because  they can be prepared so quickly. Serve them without further  cooking, or heat by panfrying,  baking or broiling. Before cook  ing, snip fat edge to prevent  curling.  To panfry, rub hot frypan  with fait cut from meat. Brown  over moderately high heat 1  to 2 minutes per side, turn and  continue cooking over moderate heat 1, to 3 minutes per  side for %-indh steaks and 4  to 6 minutes per side f r 1-  -irich- steaks.  To bake,.place meat on rack  in shallow pan. Brush with oil  or . melted fat. Bake %-inoh  steaks 60 minutes in middle of  oven at 325 F.  For Easter dinner, Food Advisory Services, Agriculture  Canada   suggest  serving   ham  steaks with a currant-mustard  sauce and sauteed apple rings.  Panfry, broil or bake the  steaks, pour sauce over and  decorate with apples for superb spring fare.  **���**��� J'-^-T^^f  KEN DeVRIES & SON LTD.

The article quoted John MeNevin, a Roberts Creek resident and a Sunshine Coast  Regional ��� District director, as  saying "he suspects School  Board members who cfwn land  near the arena site may be profiting from the location of  facilities there". r  No board member owns any  land in the Arena area.

The expenses that may. be  deducted in computing net employment income are carefully  prescribed by statute and may  be broadly divided into those  of general applilcation and  those appUcable to specific  employment.  Three percent pf salary or  Waiges, tips, adult training al-  lojwancesi and researjeh grants  (not directors' fees) to a maximum of $150 may be deducted.  However, if a taxpayer claims  any salesmen's expense or is  a memlber of the Canadian Senate or House of Cofchmons,  this deduction is not available.  All other elected officials are  resfbriioted to an amount by  which this deduction exfeeieds  their tax-free travel allowance.  An employee who sells or  negotiates contracts pays his  own expenses, works away  from his employer's estabUsh-  ment, is paid qoinmissions arid  did not receive a tax-exempt  expense allowance, may deduct  business expenses. But, he canr  not claim more than the .commissions shown on Box 'M' of  his T4 slip.  Although promotion and  entertainment expenses may  thus be deducted, proceed with  caution. The expenses must be  reasonable and pertain only to  the income reported. Vouchers  or receipts for expenses may  be requested by Revenue Canada.  Travel expenses necessarily  paid personally by other em-  ployeeis may also deducted,  provided the employee did not  receive a tax-exempt aUow-  ance from his employer and  worked aiway from his employer's place of business.  Again, these expenses should  be reasonable and receipts  should be kept to substantiate  tlheotn. Hotwever, meal cost-  may be dedufcted unless the  meals were consumed while  the employee was away .for at  least 12 hbiHisTffom the vicinity of his employer's place of  business.  If travel expenses are deductible the business portion  of interest paid to buy a car  and depreciation (capital cost  allowance is also an aUowable  deduction. This business! portion is often calculated by pro  rating the miles driven in the  year between business and per  sohal uses.  Annual union dues paid to a  Canadian or provincial trad-  union or public servant's association are also deductible.  Payments for office rent, an as  sistant and supplies are deduct  ible if the employee is required  to pay for these items under  the terms of his employment.

GRANTHAMS LANDING  IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT  Annual General Meeting  MARCH 29, 1975 - 8:00 p.m.  COMMUNITY HALL  For your printing phone 886-2622  BY Norman Watson Cogitater  In the beginning there w_s  at Sechelt on the shores -of  Porpoise Bay a marsh; It was  not a large marsh as these  thinig_ go but it served a great  purpose and was full of life-  There were at that time, according to memories of old  time residents, many tribes  of little people residinig in the  marsh. Some were transient  visitors-migratory ducks and  geese, salmon and herring.  Some, like the great Blue  Heron, who was Lord of the  Marsh, stayed on and on and  on. The great Blue Herons Had  a great colony in the trees' a-  round the marsh and were con-  tentr  Then there were the lesser  tribes, the ducks and dabblers,  the waders and- divers, and  they were content in their  combination home and pantry.;  For in those days the sea  tides washed freely in and out  of the marsh bringing nourishment to all'right down to the  i least tribe.  The fecund herring schools  spawned in the deepest part  of the marsh. Even the salmon  spawned on the sand and  gravel beds. The herring were  so. prodigal with their spawn  that they were never less although the Herons, the ducks,  the dabblers and probers gor  ged and gobbled and were  given strength to increase their  own tribes, -lie life cycles all  supported one another in those  uncomplicated days and years.  Then one day evil times be-1  fell the marsh Caine the settler. First he built a float to  moor his vessel. Then came  a small pier. Next he successfully petitioned tihe laiwjgivers  and a larger pier was erected  by the tax collector.  The ajproach to this fine  wharf was by a meagre trestle  that spindled its long legs ar  cross the marsh and bothered  almost no one. That was not  for long. It was decided that  motor vehicles should get to  the wharf and the Department  of Highways tore down the  trestle and replaced it with  fill and made a motor road,  that required no maintenance.  A small culvert wais supplied  that was deemed adequate to  release the small flow of fresh  water that emptied into the  marsh from the peat bog behind.  Since ho thought was given  to the original resident tribes  in the marsh thie road was  called progress and much, acclaimed.  And so nearly ended thousands of years of happy occupation and use by the tribes of  fin and feather. *  As the environment changed,  the trees of the Herons weakened and died ahd were no  more. The peat bog swelled  and grew, silting over the fine  clean bottoni and sealing out  the pxygen,v killing off the  organisms that were supporting all above them. The sea  could only enter for a short  ' period at the peak of the tide  through the-1 miserable "adequate" culvert and the old  flushing wias no more.     Y .  Came 19718 and the mars^i  was near the end as a pleasant  place for observers and ob-  servedJSome persons? had taken  note and gradually an idea was  born.'They thought about the  oniarsh and that it was the only  one for miles around and could  be reborn. They cogitated and  connived and talked in chambers and coffee shops and found  the way.  This way would require the  help and co-operation of many  people. There was the owner,  of the ,marsh, who wanted to  fill it completely and build  houses on it. There were "Second Century people who had  much gold and soine people  with neither gold nor land wiho  said "Lo, we have one more  chance .to repair the damage  we have done. We can make  this once again an abode for  the Utile people who were the  original residente and maybe  even the salmon Would come  bajdk." (There never were a  great many salmon but any at  all would be more than we  have now.)  Other people who were saddened by the situation said.  "We will band together arid  look after the marsh and possibly if it can have a little  spaice where we can walk and  watch, we will feed the birds  and fishes and protect them  from eyil doers and we will  become trustees."  And it came to pass that the  owner gave up his great plans.  The Second Century people  gave up their gold. The Village  faither^l gathered up the citizens and called them "trustees" The Department of High  ways repented at last and rebuilt the culvert and made it  a great gate so the sea could  Once again nourish' the marsh,  drive back the peat, wash out  the silt and ihake-a home onice  again for the-little people of  the fins arid feathers.  ^^������'���T^is'is7':the--parable, of the  little marsh that was very  nearly strangled to death and  niade  a   miraculous recovery.  The miracle was only made  possible by the good will and  enthusiasm and fore sight of  many people of diverse cirtcum  staniees banding together.  Rink work parties active  (Contributed)  Work parties are happening  pretty often at the Gibson's  Winter Club site these days.  There has been one every week  end for four weeks in a row,  and several individuals are  turning out during the week,  so if you have some spare time,  came up to the site, there will  probably be some work for  you to do. Last Saturday the  beams were delivered for the  clubhouse, roof. Most of the  day wais spent in coVerinlg  drain tile, but a short time was  spent unloading the beams.  In the coming weeks, tbere  are several jobs wihich can be  done by work parties. The  bricklayers started work last  week. They have laid several  rows of block. Wihen they get  up seven courses, some of the  cores have to be filled with  reinforcing rod and cement.  Help is also needed to carry  bricks to the bricklayers. One  Saturday when we can get ten  or more volunteers together,  the clubhouse beams need to  be raised. As you can see, we  have lots of work for volunteers, i  Volunteers, your response  has been great! Many club  members have given up their  free time to come up to the  site and help out The ;club  thanks ypu very much. We  certainly appreciate the help.

We all got the impression  that the outcome of the meeting had been decided before it  had even started and that the  meeting itself was a mere formality.  We were in-formed by the  chairman that this would be  the only opportunity for the  public to express their views  on this important matter and  that the decision, wihich everyone I spoke to afterwards  thought had already been made  would, in fact be made at a regular Council meeting or perhaps at a special meeting  which would be closed to the  public;  A petition is being circulated  at the moment to give the  people, an opportunity to express " their feelings on this  matter and we would like to  request that our M.L.A.  intercede in this application  and give-the people a chance  to have a democratically run  meeting in order to get some  satisfactory answers before  this goes,before Council finally  J.

Johnson said he was  giving the accused the benefit  of the doubt because his char- -  acter caused him to be abnormal in his actions. -  Westersund had been charged September  24 .in  Madeira  Park after he pointed a loaded  shotgun   at   Pender   Harbour,  teacher Jack Tiernan.        '  Tiernan testified that the  incident started when he pull-  td out,of the Pender Harbour  High school parking lot onto  highway 101 and a sports car  driven by Westersund came  sjcreaming up behind him at an  excessive - speed. './Tiernan said  Westersund tadlgaited him. for  a distance and then passed, as  they headed into Madeira Park  "I followed himin to-the'���'\  shopping center and we had  a little alteration.*'  Tiernan -explained to the  judge that there had been'a  loud argument about Wester-  sund's driving habits, and when  Westersund disappeared into  the back of his drugstore "I  followed him in." ���      Y  "I followed him down the  aisle, heard a noise in the back  room and the next thing I  knew lie came out with a shotgun aind proceeded to load it.  "He put two shells in the  barrel and aimed it at my head  He told me I was trespassing  and would blow my head off  if I didn't get out.  TDefense lawyer.Allan Mathe  son in cross-examining Tiernan. suggested he had gone  into, the store, wihich was closed for business at the time, to  start a fight with Westers^und.  He suggested Tiernan had  difficulty controHihg his, temper and later called Pender  Harbour teacher Bruno Dom-  foroWski to testify that __er__ah  had asked him to "go outside  and settle the matter" after a y  disagreement in the high school  staff room last June.  In   his   testimony,   Westersund   told   the   court   he   h^d7  gone into the back of the storey  to change his clothes and when  Tiernan came in "I was scared  to death."    '    (  "I was afraid of physical  violence with this maniac,"  Westersund said, "and I  thought the best thing' to do  was evict him on grounds that  he was trespassing and jeopard.  i7ing the safety of myself and  my store."  After summing up the case  Judge Johnson said Wester-  sund's action was a stupid  thing to do and he would have  convicted him for such a drastic action. But he said he  would give Westersund the  benefit because it is written  in his character to do such  abnormal actions.  In other Trials Thursday,  Karen Knox, 23, of Sedhelt,  was found not guilty of possession of hashish. Judge Johnson  ruled the accused did not hajve  intent of physical possession  after a box containing the illegal drug had been left at her  residence by a transient friend.

RUGBY  HOST RENT A CAR  Now available at  Trail Bay Mall  SECHELT, B.C.        885-2910  From $9.95 up  This weekend Gibsons played host to the '-Kate Rugby  Club from Vancouver. Both  teams played clean, hard rugby under less than ideal  weather conditions with Gibsons coming out ahead 12 to 0.  The first half was scoreless,  clue mainly to good defensive  taickiling by the Kats as Gibsons put extreme pressure on  their opponents inside the 25  yard line.  In the second half Gibsons  again went to the offensive.  Their scrum won all of its set  scrums and rucks and well  placed kicks by standoff Bob  Johnson kept the Kats bottled  up in their own zone.  Gibsohs first try came when  from a set scrum they won the  hook an& pushed into the Kats  end zone where 7 John Duffy  fell on theball. The convert  was wide. 7  Gibsons next try was eniti-  ated by Alex Skytte who ran  through four Kats players before passing to John Upward  who in turn gave the ball to  Rip Cameron and he powered  his way into the end zone. The  convert this time hit the crossbar.' -'���-.'.���.  Near the end of the game on  a five yard slcrum in the Kate  zone Gibsons again pushed into  the end zone and when the ball  ���popped free Rip Cameron  dove on it for the try. The convert was short and the game  ended with another shutout  victory for  Gibsons.  Next Saturday Gibsons will  algain be playing at holme  against the Capilanos from  North Vancouver. The game  will be. played at Langdale  Elementary School Field.
