 Provincial Library*  Victoria�� B��� C���  The Sunshine  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 28,   Numiber 9, March 5, 1975.  wary  of village  takeover  J. Ronald Longst_ffe,- executive vice-president of Canadi-  an Forest Products said in Port  Mellon last week that he was  waiy of Gibsons Y expansion  plans. 7'Ti ''  Longstaffe, who was in Port  Mellon with Canifor President  Peter Bentley, commented in a  negative manner on -council's  recent aspirations to include  the Port Mellon pulp mill as  the basis of their expansion  because *1we have been burned  before."  Longstaffe said Canfor had a  contract with Prince George  asfter a similar expansion  scheme and when the present  government came tp power certain clauses were pulled out as  concessions and the company  was left in an inferior position.  He also stated that Port Mellon would probably end up  paying.more taxes for services  that arie already being provided.  Board rejects  Pratt Ril.dWer  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has rejected Gibsons  offer to sell the,waterlines in  the Pratt and Veterans Road  area for a price of $37,800.  (The decision came from a  water committee meeting that  recommended rejection of purchase at the quoted price because it was not economical  for the board.  ' The Regional Board had  made the village an offer last  December which amounted to  $4 per foot or book value ��� the  original capital costs of the  system ��� whichever was higher. Aldemnah Kurt Hoehne indicated at that time he was  not satisfied with the price.  The water committee further  recommended to the board last  week that the water lines,  which are outside village bodn-  daries,be^ piuxfltesed at present  Tepiac^ment costs minus the  costs of upgrading the system  and minus depreciation based .  on a forty year life span. This,  amounts- to about $23,000.  Building looks  l<^#far  Building, both home and  commercial appears to be headed for another good year on  the Sunshine Coast. For the  first two months of this year  the construction permits issued  call for close to $2,000,000 of  new buildings.  This includes 33 homes averaging about $35,000 plus heavier commercial commitments  such as industrial improve-  merits at Port Mellon. Gibsons'  two month total amounts to  #80,000 and Sddhelt's $237,000.  Seichelt is building more new  homes at present.  WINS  LIONS  $100  Lions 400 draw winner last  week for $100 was J.

Bus discipline outlined  As part7 of an effort to curb  discipline problems on buses  the school board has sent official rules to students riding the  buses..';.  The set of rules, adopted  from those used by he Courtenay sohool board, and wihich  the student must sign, emphasizes that iCTesponsible conduct by students wihich may  distract the driver will not be  tolerated.  Bus drivers must inform a  student involved in improper  behavior that he or she cannot  ride   a   bus   again   until   the  school principal has restored  their transportation piivUe^jes.  Theseven rulesare: Smoking is prohibited; shouting or  unnecessary noise is prohibited; no standing, changing seats  or moving about while the bus  is in motion; markingor .damaging the bus or its equipment  is forbidden;    Y   t 7  Eating and drinlcing on the  bus are not permitted; students  must ride on the bus to which  they were assigned unless they  receive authorization to change  busies; the driver has authority  to assign students to a definite  ' seat. Y  Return to basics argued  Reading from a Vancouver  newspaper an article on the  fact United States 'educationist were mulling over the desire to return to basics in education. Chairmian Peter Prescesky of the district school  board heard opinions from  trustees.  IThe reading came before the  school board meeting Thursday of last week. Remarks  arose sudh as one which maintained so-called experts really  were not experts at all, also  problems from the home were  Jack-Jill meeting  The Jack and Jill Child  Minding Co-olp will hold a meeting oh March 12 at 8 p.m. in  Gibsons Health Unit.

One trustee had the feeling  the system should have stayed with basics while another  thought some form of new policy should evolve. The public  were pulling and pushing.  A recent Coast JNews editorial was mentioned. This editorial was concerned chiefly with  structural writing and spelling.  Getting back to basics plus  discipline would help, one  trustee felt. Towards the end  of discussion a trustee proposed that they should not go too  far either way. Not all the  frills should be thrown out because some of them were good.  SHARE YOUR  GOOD HEALTH  BE A BLOOD DONOR  $1,990,100 covers school  _oiade last August  A capital expense proposal  covering $1,9904.00 was approved by resolution by the  school    board    at    ^ursday,  night's meeting last wetk.  The proposal;was presented  to the school board by the de-  partmerrt of education. It allocated sums of money to cover  the building program as proposed last August.  Board enters  school problem  The Regional District board:  is interested in the location of  a new school, also future new  schools. This information was  sent the school board by letter  from board chairman Frank  West.   V  He assured the slchool board  that the, Regional board' was  very inuch concerned about the  ultimate siting of schools as  board planning for the future  development of the area is  greatly influenced by the location of suich and similar institutions.  Pub parking  rule attacked  A recommendation from the  Regional Board's technical  (planning committee regarding  parking spaces at the proposed  Selma Park neighborhood pub  has been sent back to the committee because Director John  MeNevin felt the suggestion  would turn the pub into a  '^neighborhood drive-in pub."  MeNevin disagreed with the  recommendation stating that  parking requirements be set at  bne parking space for every  three seats within the establishment and that the capacity  be strictlv limited to the  amount of parking and sewage  disposal capacity of the site.  The rdcommendation was  part of an amended second and  third' reading for by-law 35(25)  a zoning amendment bylaw for  the neighborhood pub.  MeNevin said he was not in  favor of the parking recommendations because it would  change the concept of the  neighborhood pufo> and turn it  into another drive-in.  v Director Norm Watson argued that if adequate parking facilities were not. provided people would cause hazards by  parking in the streets and in  other people's driveways.  The problem will be discussed again at the next meeting of the technical planning  committee.  Vandals busy  Vandals caused about $300  damage to equipment at the  Gibsons sewage treatment  plant over the weekend.  Damage was done to a flow  meter, a lawnmawer, and the  wharfinger vehicle which was  housed in the compound. The  vandals apparently gained entry by jumping over the compound fence- sometime late  Saturday night.  It wias also reported that a  number of tools were stolen  from the construction shack at  the Gibsons Winter Club curling rink site.  Here is what it offers:  ; $1,518,050 for a Sechelt junior high school.  $124,500 for Sechelt Element  ary.---- Y :" '���      7 .'-'"''���   '  $97,400 for Roberts Creek  sldhobl '���"-.��������� ���'.;-,.       v  7 $15,500 forYPender Harbour  Secondary school.  This is broken down to $70,-  200 for Sechelt sdhool site,  $i;253,850 for a building and  $189,000 for equipment.

Pender Harbour sfchool $15,0  00 for building additions, and  $500 for equipment. -  Other sums provided in the  proposal, are $166,900 for fees  and contingencies, $30,500 for  renovations and reconstruction  and $15,250 for fire loss risk  reduction.  The proposal calls for the  borrowing of this money from-  time to timt witfh a two year  period.  The proposal states that the  money to be borroiwed will be  eligible for provincial grants.  PEP kept cool in crisis  , Despite alarmists who  thought -the aa^ea should be evacuated because of sunken tank  cars containing chlorine gas,  officials of PEP (Provincial  emergei-cy Program) (had the  situation continuously under  close observation, Don ty Pye,  the Sunshine Coast re^onal  co-ordihatoi* of���. the Eonaergehty  Program reports.  He maintained continuous  communication with Aid. Kurt  Hoehne, Gibsons PEP official;  Aid. Dennis ShufcUewo-th, Sechelt's representative; Glen  ^Kraiis, . Roberts^'...C^eek^fire,  chief, plus Peter: Hoemberg"  representing the Regional  board.  The search for the tank cars  believed on sea bottom in Mala-  spina Strait, Powel River area,  continues.  ; As Regional Board representative on the Provincial Emergency Program, Director Peter  Hoemberg cited last month's  sinking of three chlorine cars  near Powell River as a warn-r  ing that a local emergency program naust be formulated.  Hoemberg told Regional  Board directors laist Thursday  that the tank car incident that  still threatens marine life in  Malaspina Strait enforces the  need for the organization of a  skeleton crew to handle local  emergencies.  Hoemberg said. he met with  J^J^!Bf^9y ^PJPRI-^W-.CO^rdiiia1-  tor Don Pye arid Gibsohs and  Sedhelt reprtefentativets last  week and resolutions were  made to organize a skeleton  group and do research oh the  possible dangers on sea, land  and in the air.  ,000 pledged for refuge  Sechelt Alderman Norm Watson announced! Monday that he  has received approval from B.  M. Hoffmeister, chairman of  the national Second Century  fund, to go ahead with a waterfowl refuge in the vicinity  of Porpoise Bay-  Watson said that $50,000 has  been pledged by the Second  Century   fund;  half  of which  will go towards the purchase  of eight acres of land from  Len Van Egmond and half go  towards the development of  the property.  The Second Century fund refers to $10 million set aside by  the federal government from  which this province may reap  the  interest  on the condition  Public invited  to committees  The Regional Board is inviting voter participation in planning committee meetings that  up until now were closed to  the public.  The decision, resulting from  a procedures committee recommendation, was made at the  last board meeting and will allow concerned citizens to voice  their opinions on planning  matters affecting their area.  The committee meetings will  be held once every two months  and the location of the meetings will depend on the planning area involved. Discussions  on rezoning in Selma Park, for  instance, would' take place at  some location in that area to  allow local citizens direct input to the planning committee.  that it is used for wildlife or  conservation purposes.  Watson had initially brought  the proposal before village  council last October explaining that the village would lease  the property from Second Century for $1 for 99 years.  , He said at that time developers with property surrounding the marsh would install  such facilities as picnic tables,  washrooms, and footpaths because such a park would consequently increase the value of  the adjacent land.  Watson said Monday he  plans to revert the eight acres  of what is now mostly swamp  to its original state. About half  the area involved was at one  time a salt marsh before the  tidal flow from Porpoise Bay  was blocked' by a road.  The alderman plans to approach the highways department to install large culverts  under the existing road which  will allow salt water and salt  water organisms to enter the  marsh.  Meetings will be held later  with provincial wildlife officials and marine biology experts from UBC to discuss the  development' of the marsh.

Presces-  ky's introducing a discussion on U.S. schools going back  to basics at last week's board -meeting (sitory in this issue)  an. article in the Departnienit of Education's publication  Open Line_is a good f ollbw-up to line up with the chairman's feelings.  The Open Line article was written by a former Pender Harbour school teacher, Frances Fleming, nlow departmental1 assistant superintendent of integraited and  sui>pcHntive services in the schoiol system.  Comment on the article can be left to the feelings  of the individual! reader. Most could agree that Frantes  Fleming has written something far from being the prbr  duct of a pseudo-expert. Here is what she wrote:  "Whether by accident or design, transfer of teadher  training to the universities did &way with the teaching of classroom management techniques. Consequently,  if the novice graduate teacher did hot intuitively know  ihow to cope, or if trial and error did not Work in the  first week of school, he or she was doomed.  "Since he or she died professionally many milps  fjnom the campus, Ifae. universities did not note his demise, and went right on producing suibject specialists  with no learning .strategies, as serious a. c^I<amity lor  <t9_eir clients as if the faculty of iriedicine were to graduate rhindlogists with no awareness of the ciiculjation of  theblootf.  "The legendary comment.by tf^ie professors was to  thfe effect that, if the lesson was s^fi^ienrfcly iEdteresting,  there would be no discipline problem in the class. Anxious young teachers, we^-lmeed in ifxoht of a grim, or  gtinning class, tried to interest by becoming Sdng-and  Dance Men.  "They were animated and charming; they dragged  in movie projectors, film-istrip projectors, opaque projectors, tape cassettes, television setts, artifacts and wall  charts, only to find that they could^ not compete with.  Sesame Street. Their classes were only brief ly interested. The old spectre of lack of control would thus drift  down the hall to haunt them.  "Small wonder that the exhausted Song-and-Dance  Man seized upon the concept of _��eacher-as-a-Resburce  Person as th_ model most likely to succeed. He handed  out mimeographed 'discovery' work sheets and sank  wearily into his chair, vastly preferring to be surrounded by jostling, competing, demanding children to shouting a lesson over the hum of machinery while the spit-  balls and paper darts swarmed around his head in semi-  darkness.  "Tlie Old laok of control spectre now hovered at his  doorway as child after child opted out, refused to compete for the teacher's attention, failed to read, became  depressed, discouraged, and even hostile.  "To assist teachers to develop a new approach to  classroom management we offer you- a truly western  idea, the Teacher-as-Wagon Master."  She has delved into the troubles of the education  system in her article The Teacher as Wagon Master. The  difference between the teacher and wagon master is  that the teacher is not a lecturer. The teacher is a director or work supervisor and she maintains under this  plan there would be no problem of control or discipline.  Each member would be too involved to disrupt. This is  management technique.  Before offering comment it would be best to wait  and see how it would work. However her idea of changing the Song-and-Dance team into Wagon Masters at  least deserves consideration.  Hunts-  'Sedentary work, ain't it!"  Dear Mayor Nelson:  Press reports indicate "that  Council is considering the pre  servation and enlhlanicement bf  the beauty of the YKrail Bay  shoreline. May I offer my  Wholehearted support for this  endeavour.  Previous      councils       halve  thouighltlessly made  ugly, our  natural heritage, the gracious  curve   of   beacih   frotrn   Selma  Park to Burley's 'Rocks. When  municipal     authorities      com  mendalbly sought to drain the  swampy area in the commer-  icial centre of the village they  thre(w   great  ugly   chunks   of  blasted   rock   onto  the   beadh.  at  ' the   site    of  the.   outlet  With the years manly of these  boulders   have  washed   down  the beach in unsightly fashion  (because   no  precautions  were  taken to restrain this. Before  long  barnajoles  will  grow  on  these rooks and cut the feet of  bathers   on   the   only 7* public  beach within the.Village of Sedhelt.  Look today alt the disgusting .  mess netar the Parthenon  (where Inlet Avenue meets the  sea. Has anyone ever been instructed to restore this area  to its original state?  You, sir, will remember  from the time you were a Y  schoolboy in Sedhelt that a  boat could once be beached any  where in the area under con  sideration without fear pf damage from linking boulders.  Recently I saw a man in a  pleasure boat using a pike pole  to fend his craft off the rocks  which tlie village council permitted to be strewn over the  naturally smooth pebbles.  Public funds were spent to  dump rock along the foreshore  as a bulwark. This has not  been successful. The storms  of winter continue to move  more man-pliaiced debris dotwn  the beat-i. Please discontinue  this objectionable practice. If; '  possible the damage already  done should be rectified.  There have been several pre  vious bulwarks, including a  c*H_c_1ete wfe-U built by the  Union Steamship Co. All have  been failures, but tihe shoreline is entirely capable of tak  ing care of itself if the lovely  old drift logs are left in pbsi  tion. Visitors to the beaidh  would rather sit on the satin  grey logs, beautiful with age,  than clamber over the sharp  edges of man broken rock..  On the positive side, may I  suggest that the road along  the waterfront be turned into  a mall. My dictionary defines a  mall as a public area often  set with bushes or flowers and  designed as a promenade -for  leisurely strolling, or as a  pedestrian walk. Presently the  road is full of pot-holes, but  when it was in better condition it was used as a drag  strip, so there would seem to  be little value in devoting the  area to automobiles.  Of course a pedestrian mall  would entail improvement of  the road behind existing  houses on the waterfront so  that they could be serviced  by ambulance, ,fire truck, etc.  In my vietw money would be  better sjpent developing a ser-  viae road in;the back, and already a considerable amount  of gravel has beeh placed in  the area. Could the present  Council consider setting up a  parking area for visitors to  the beach rather than devote  funds tb an ugly bulwark.  During the past couple of  months I have seen the front  road referred to in print by at  least three names, Le. The  Buolevard, Marine Drive and  Beach. Avenue, all of them commonly in use by neighboring  coastal communities* Seventy-  six years ago this road was  graced with a charming two-  storey hotel, a store, a post office, and other structures. In  March the Sechelt Post Office  will observe the seventy-ninith  anniversary of its establishment.  After all this time may 'we  not have one official name for  the, front road, and may the  natme please be distinctive,  When you (hear Porfbage  Avenue or Tfareadneedle 7 St.'  you know immediately that  the reference is to Winnipeg  or London.  TThere is one naime which is  not. only melodious but which  belongs tb this area alone. In  the    Sechelt    language    (not  Chinook)   the   village oii  the  neck   of   the   peninsula   was  known as OHIATESLBCH until  , many years alfter contact with  the white man. Early settlers  spelled the name as it sounded  ���to  tbem,   e.g.   GSE-AT-LE-igGH,  CHATTLEDGE,   etc.   Would   it  be possible for,the municipal  counta-l   to   request   consultation with the Sechelt  Indian  Band Council as to the desirability or otheifwise of using  some form of CHATEEiECH as  a n&tme for the entire length  of  road   extending   from the  Indian   cemetery  to   Burley'is  Racks. I am not suggesting  thait the Indian ' people turn  Uheir road into a mall because  they have preserved the natural beauty of their section.  The cemetery was blessed  on April 15, 1873, over a century ago, and no doubt existed  for ceniturries before that time.  )So the Indian people majy  undietrstandably: wish to retain  the name for their own. use.  7 One citizen at least would like  you tomake an effort toward  cooperation.  On a previous occasion the  school "children of Sefcheit did  a fine job in selecting the  name Trail Bay for their school  -Plerhiaips they could provide  ypu today witfh sPund pro  posals for the village as they  would like to see it  develop.  May I offer my apologies  for the length of this lietter.  Please accejpt my appreciation  tftor any consideration wihich  you may be able to give to  my suggestions.

This letter was directed tb  Sechelt municipal clerk:  TEditor: Last year the subject Of the development of a  marina in Porpoise' Bay was  being discussed and we wrote  to the Council at that time on  the subj ect but never even received an aoloioiwledgement to  say that the letter had,beeri  received. The letter brought to  the attention of council problems whichwe think warrent  investigation before such a development 7 is considered.  - The main objection as we  see it is the pollution aspetet.  Porpoise Bay is not subject to  very mulch tidlal motion and  the flushing action necessary  to create a clean environment  in the water is virtually nil.  This is evidenced if one takes  thetime to look around the  shore line anywhere at the  head of the Ba(y area. The a-  hiount of garbage and oil  which is there now would-be  increased considerably if a  marina was permitted to operate here.  Not too long ago an application by the Vancouver Yacht  Club for a marina in Secret  Cove area was turned down by  Regional Board mainly on the  grounds of this lack of tidal action to dispose of the pollution  which is inevitable in such an",  undertaking. The tidal move-"  ment in Porpbise Bay would  appear to be even less than at  Secret Cove so on these  grounds . alone we can see no  justification in allowing such  a project to' become a reality.  Safety of boats wouldi be an  other consideration to be looked into. Tyee Airways use the  bay extensively and it is to  their credit , that there have  been no acfcidents involving  the aircraft and the boating  fraternity., It would not seem  logical to tempt fate by adding  to an already existing potential  source of accidents by increasing 7the number of boats in a  limited area.     7  Noise pollution and the inevitable damage to marine and  shore life are 'two other reasons Yiyhy svxih, a proposal  should 7 warrant an in depth  study oh all angles before a  final decision is made.  At the present time we  would suggest that the disad^  vantages outweigh the advantages quite considerably except from the angle of Mr.  Van Egmond, the developer,  and we hope that a considerable amount of intensive study  by experts will be done because environmental damage  wouldbe inevitable once the  decision has beenmade.  The 7 question of why the  members of the.. Gibsons Wildlife Club should be interested  in something proposed for Sechelt is simple to answer. We  are interested in all our coastline and beaches regardless of  where. they may be and contend that everyone Should take  an interest in what is being  planned which directly affects  the tidal waters.  ���J.

It eontains^ri  and initiatives; hew and improved services-f^^^y^(^s^$.: This  job security budget provides expenditures to maintain and increase  employment throughout the economy of British Columbia.M  A Job Security Budget  The budgetary expenditures for 1975-1976 will  be made with people in mind. Expenditures will be  made to maintain present job levels and increase  employment in the province while also providing  meaningful additions to the quality of life. This  budget deals with programs to construct new  schools, hospitals, low and middle income housing,  highways, and homes for our senior citizens. This  budget will provide for special employment programs for workers in the forestry sector, public  works building construction, summer employment  programs for bur younger citizens, shipbuilding in  our local yards, community and recreational construction programs, and much more.  A Mu__kjpalit.es Budget  In an historic revenue sharing arrangement between the municipalities and the province, with respect to revenue from natural gas exports, one-third  of the net revenue produced from an export price  over $1.00 of our natural gas (taking into account  our federal tax rebate system, and other expenses)  will flow to the municipalities in British Columbia.  For example, if the hew export price of natural gas  is set at $1.30 per mcf, the municipalities would  receive roughly an additional $20 million annually.  At $2.00 per mcf (the competitive value of the fuel),  the municipalities would receive roughly $40 million, which is equivalent to an additional $20.00  per capita payment.  In addition, the provincial government intends to  make additional per capita grant payments to the  municipalities this year and next, in order to ensure  that the per capita grant program is kept up to date.  Total per capita payments to municipalities in the  coming fiscal year will total over $70 million���  almost $7 million of this is a result of the new  provincial policy.  A Fair Taxes Budget  Again this year, there will be no general increases  in personal income or sales taxes for the citizens of  British Columbia. Each homeowner and family  farmer will receive the benefits of a doubling of the  limits of the school tax removal program. The maximum reduction last year was $40. This year it will  be $80. This is in addition to the $200 homeowner  grant.  Assistance to renters in 1975 will be provided  through a new ROSTER TAX CREDIT Program.  Credits of up to $100 will be paid to eligible renters  on low and moderate incomes.  The rate of provincial corporate income tax for  small businesses will decrease to an effective rate  of 10%, while the provincial rate for large corporations will increase from 12% to 13%.  An Elderly Citizens Budget  Under the HOMEOWNER GRANT program,  elderly citizens will continue to receive the extra  $50 payment, for a total grant of $250. The budget  includes a minimum $80 payment under the  RENTER TAX CREDIT program for those aged 65  and over. The budget also proposes to continue the  RENTERS RESOURCE GRANT for1975 for those  aged 65 and over. This means that two payments  of $80 (or more) for 1975 will be made* to this  group. The additional payment is designed to ease  the transition to the new income-related program,  by providing greater assistance to the elderly who  are often the most severely affected by inflation���  those people on fixed incomes. Additional funds  will be provided to Mincome, Adult Care, Home-  makers Programs and Pharmacare to increase the  scope of these innovative programs. Furthermore,  a special emphasis will be placed on providing additional hoiising for our senior citizens.  A Social Progress Budget  $122 million will be provided to the Mincome  fund for our 128,000 citizens, aged 60 or over.  Child maintenance care and special services will  receive an additional $13 million this year. An additional $102.5 million over last year will be provided  to continue the upgrading of the province's hospitals  \ and medical care. Total expenditures for these programs will rise to over $587 million in 1975-76.  B.C. shipyards and marine construction concerns will benefit from $40 million to further the  . growth and g^ind^cap^ili'ties of our E.C."ferry System. A <��en#aiizedTfer^ t^ephcm, infor-  mation system will be launched this spring.  One of the most dramatic expenditures will be  i in the held or education. Increased grants to schools  arid reduced homeowner school taxes, additions to ���  university operating grants, student scholarships  and bursaries, college, technical and vocational  school construction will account for an additional  $64.6 million of this year's budget over last years.  An important evolution in our educational system  is the dramatic increase in the number of part-time  students. This trend has been encouraged by government funding. Funds will again be made available to enable our educational institutions to  respond to the needs of their students and of  society. One such need is illustrated by the 5-fold  increase in funding for student aid and teacher  training scholarships since 1972-73.  A Families Budget  The budget for T975t1 976\places a high priority  on housing. The Department of Housing will be  actively involved in building projects for senior citizens, as well as supporting the activities of nonprofit housing societies.  Another area of concentration will be the accessibility of rental accommodation for families with  children. An aggressive land servicing policy, new  community planning and development; and the servicing of Crown land for sale or lease to private individuals will facilitate this growth of housing and  accommodation.  In the past year, 181 communities have benefitted  from 516 grants from the Community Recreational  Facilities fund.The appropriation of additional funds  to this program will allow for further community  recreational projects.   Y  An Agricultural and  Industrial Expansion Budget  The Farm Income Assurance program, the only  one of its kind in Canada, provides a base by which  production programs can be carried out with the  assurance that producer income levels can be safeguarded. The program will be augmented \>y $27  million. This program, together with theactivities of  the Land Commission provides an important measure of job and income security for farmers. Agricul  tural Credit programs will be expanded by a further  $6: million. This goverhment recognizes the vital  role agriculture plays hot only in the economy of  British Columbia, but in the lifestyle of all British  . Columbians. .>���  In the coming year, provision is being made for  expansion of our successful trade missions, technical and small business assistance, and industrial  and economic studies programs. In addition, the  British Columbia DevelopmentCorporation, formed  to provide financial and technical assistance to industry as, to the end of last month, provided 24  loans totalling $2.8 million. 75% of these loans were  to small businesses.  A Sharing Budget  A sum of $5 million will be allocated for world  food relief. This augments the $5 million .Agricultural Aid to Developing Countries, arid Major  Disaster Areas Fund, from both capital and unexpended interest earnings. The British Columbia  government will match private Sector contributions  given to world food relief. If you give a dollar, the  government will match that dollar with an equal  amount, in order to assist all British Columbians  in voicing their concern. Y:  y Y  It is the intention of your government to establish  a new provincial financial institution which will be  designed to increase the competition in financial  markets, to lower interest rates, to support further  economic and social development of our province,  to ensure that more of all or our money remains in  our province, and to increase the amount of credit  extended to low and middle income earners, to  farmers, and to small business.

King, minister of  labor, has released preliminary  information     regarding      the  magnitude of wage increases  bargained for the province's  organized labor force in 1974.  Although the information is  preliminary and subject to  change as late settlements are  brought to the attention of the  dtepartment, the minister noted  that there were 309 major collective agreements settled dur  ing 1974 covering a total of  ���159,277 employees. Increases in  hourly earnings as provided by  these ' settlements averaged  1_% or 86c per hour. Skilled  employees received wage increases of 17% or $1.03 per  hour, while the unskilled job  classes averaged increases of  15.0 percent or 66 cents per  hour. The minister explained  that average wage increases  were reflecting the sustained  high   rate   of   inflation,  During the last quarter of  1974, there were 60 settlements  covering a total of 15,305 employees. Average annual increases in hourly earnings of  117.4 percent or 90 cents per  hour were provided for in the  contracts. Several important  collective agreements were settled during the quarter.

(The pond, part of.a $2.7 million pollution program, wall  collect wastes from a hogfuel  burning boiler resulting in discharge of clean water into sewage outfall.  Other piarts of the program  include a more efficient sawdust cooker, a nelw slaker  oausticizer, a new high energy  scrubber, and a domestic sewage system.  John Sanders said the mill  is working towards provincial  government pollution standards  but, like most of the other  mills in the province, it still  has a long w<ay to go to meet  requirements. He indicated the  present program would be in  operation in 3 to 6 months.  EASTER AT DISNEYLAND  29th March to April 8: $219.00  Phone your local travel agent  at 885-2910, 885-2339, 922-0221.

Ask Jack  for our free  Catalogue  of  Real Estate  RED CROSS  means  pressures  President of Canadian Forest Products, Peter J. G, Bent-  ley, said in Port Mellon last  week that the prime responsibility of the Port Mellon mill  is to provide viable jobs regardless of outside pressures  by sudh factors as unions,  Workers' Compensation Board,  or pollution control standards.  Bentley. in Port Mellon with  Ronald Longstaffe, executive  vice-president of Canfor for  meetings with mill supervisory  presonnel. was commenting on  the cumulative effect of a number of pressures hitting the  forest industry at a time when  economic conditions* are not  ideal.  Referring specifically to pol-  liitidn standards as set by the  provincial government in the  1970 Pollution Control Act.  Bentley stated that he was not  against the philosophies of the  act and that the mill was striving for constant improvements  in that field.  "But we can't cope with the  implementation of suggested  standards overnight ���there  has to be intelligent planning  over a period of several; years.  The rate of improvement Tis  governed by economic times  and the technology available."  The Port Mellon mill is presently involved in a $2.7 million  pollution overhaul that will  bring standards closer to government objectives and at the  same time provide for more efficient processes in the production of kraft pulp products.  Bentley said the pollution  control problem is not in isolation. There are numerous  other demands made by the  Factories Aot, the Workers'  Compensation Board, the Forest Service, and unions.  "We are getting hit by so  many fronts and nobody in  Victoria is saying that it's too  much of a burden on the for  est industry." Bentley added-  that the government is forcing  the industry to spend capital  which may jeopardize the position in world markets and consequently jeopardize jobs.      Y  "We budget so much for pollution and if the market, happens to go down then the percentage of unproductive money  becomes larger. We are not  critical of the objectives but  we are critical of the timing."  Longstaffe compared it to  any family situation. "Lots of  things are desirable in life but  they just have to hold off until  the economic situation becomes  better.  "We don't wiant to reach  Utopian working conditions if  we can't aford to employ anyone." ,,������.'  Bentley said he was extreme:  ly pessimistic about the economic situation for 1975 and  feels that there will be no  meaningful turnabout before  the next year.  '���The rate of inflation may  stop but investment confidence  will not be restored until after  its well down."  The; Canfor president referred   to   4,000,000   newYUnsolcif  housing  units  in  the  United:  States   as   an   indication <a_77-Y  weak lumber market.  "The trick in 1975 is to keep  your head above water," I-ong-  staffe added. He said the government had made some concessions in order to ensure that  some companies survive but in  many cashes the help is negligible. *"-":"  The lumber industry must  look at survival on a short  term basis as well as a long  term basis to provide for future expansions ,hew jobs, and  new products.  Bentley felt that the climate  of uncertainty created by the  government has dampened  many of the long term goals.  Tree planting best in fall  Trees may be successfully  planted in the fall soon after  the leaves have dropped, provided one takes certain necessary precautions. Go to the  local nurseries ahd select at  your leisure. Those you select  now will be freshly dug. and  delivered faster than the busy  spring season.  The greatest obstacle to  planting trees in the fall is the  possibility of freezing weather  occurring earlier than usual.  If this happens a mulch of  three or four inches of leaves,  straw, shavings or a mixture  of peat moss and s_wdust,  should be applied so that.the  roofs, will��� be able to continue  their development for a few  weeks longer.  Dig a hole large enough to  provide an extra foot of diameter around the root or root  ball. It should be from 18 to 24  inches deep. Soil can be put  back into the right depth for  the root system.  In wet location- and jwbere  dftiainaige must be provided  either by digging the hole  deeper and partially filling it  with crushed rock or by dig  ging a connecting deeper hole  nearby   and   partly   filling   it  with  stones���as yuu  would  a  dry well.  'When^ digging the hole place  the top 10 inches of soil on one  side and the rest on the other  side of the hole so that the  good top soil may be replaced  around the roots when planting. Keep lots of peat moss  handy to mix with sub-soil before adding this to the top  part of the tree roots.  Newly planted trees should  not be fertilized the first year,  as new hair roots are just  being formed, and without  these the tree cannot assim  ilate rich plant food. Many  trees and shrubs have been  killed by overfertilizing at  planting time.  YUKON WEATHER  The Yukon, extending from  the relatively warm Pacific to  the mulch colder Beaufort Sea,  hjas produced tetrnperature  readings of 81 degrees Faforen  heit below zero at Snag in 1947  a record lotw for North Amer  ica to 95 degrees above zero at  Dawson.

West asked the delegation,  made up of SiPCA members,  Gibson�� ROMP Corporal Dar-  rel Price, and veterinarian Dr.  Pat^ Perry, what the group  would do if the regional district was prepared to fund' dog  control.  "We are very nice gentlemen," West said, referring to  regional boaird directors, "but  we are lousy dlog; catchers."  In', his brief to iftie board,  Bob Wells, vice-president of the  SPCA, reiterated the need to  control the. great number of  dogs running at large and suggested that an animal shelter,  a pound keeper, ahd a van be  utilized to cover the area between Port Mellon and Earl's  Cove on a population basis.  The greater the population,  the more time the dog catcher  would spend in that area.  Wells suggested $1.50 per capita plu_ revenue from dog licensing would cover the cost of  maintaining the above.  Further discussion will be  held in committee meetings  with the inclusion of three liaison members representing  the SPCA.  / i  ALL FUN RENO  $79.00  Phone your local travel agent  at 885-2910,  885-2339, 922-0221  ���4*M^M^M0WW*#M��MA#*0*MM*��0��_i  You're   complaining   about  the lack off floor space���I'm  the Managing Director!

The forrwiard-averagiRg provisions in the Income Tax Act  Jiperjmit injddviduailis to defer  taxes on certain types of in-  coihe byydeducting from the  income a sinjgle amount paid  for an Tahnuity contract and  then pa^irtg tax on) the annual  annuity receipts over a limited  period of years. '  For example, an individual  has an unusual receipt of say,  $15,000 and wants to spread  it over ten years. He uses $18,-  500 to buy an. annuity of $1,500  per year for nine years  (ii_norinig inteajest). He has  $1,500 income in the first year  and an equal amount from the  annuity over eachCof the next  nine years. In this way, the tax  on the original $15,000 is  spread over ten years.  In addition to tax deferral  another advantage that may  be derived from the pundhase  of an income-averaging annuity  contract is a saving in the aggregate amount of tax paid by  the individual. This will result  where the individual's marginal rate of tax declines during the term of the income-  averaging annuity obntract.  An income-averaging annuity  can be purchased only by an  individual who is a natural  living person; accordingly, an  estate, trust or a partnership  do not qualify. >  Situations in which optimum  advantage may be enjoyed by  utilizing forward-averaging include retirement, the realization of an extraordinary gain  on the sale of property or business, the phasing out by an  athlete or other performer of  his professional career, an in-  dividual's ceasing to be a resident of Canada and exercising a stdck option.  Interest-on a oahk loan to  buy an income-averaging annuity is deductible and payments under an inteoane-averag  ing annuity contract may be  assigned to a bank or other  lending institution as collateral  security without jeopardizing  its status as an income-averag  ing annuity.  By arranging bank loan re-  paiymenfts to fit future annuity receipts it may be possible to free a portion of the  lump sum receipt for reinvestment or, in the case of an exercised stock option, to avoid  the necessity of disposing of  some of the shares acquired to  pay the tax.  Injoome-averaiging annuities  are intended to and may provide relief if you are uneacpect  edly thrust into the higher  brackets of the tax rate schedule by one of the foregoing  special receipts. Also, as indicated above, they can be a  useful tax planning vehicle.  If your income for 1974 includes any of the above-men  tioned special receipts, consult  your tax adviser if you are in  doubt as to whether to  utilize the ir-ctomfiMavexaging  annuity provisions. Remember  that March 1, 1975 is the deadline for income-averagir-g annuity contracts for 1974.

The final game  saw Gibsons edge the Trojans  in overtime 7-4..  Al games were paly ed at  ' UBC under less than ideal  weather 'and field conditions.  The rain and mud made ball  handling difficult so Gibsons  attempted to keep as much  play as possible in the scrum.  Gibsons managed to control all  . the m-aitches by using this tactic-' ��� .��� ' ' "77;  Gibsons scrum won nearly  all its set scrums, lineouts,  mauls and rucks and when  that failed the sure, hard  tackling of the backfield players kept the opposition from  running any long gains.  Gibsons won their first five  games to advance to the final  against the Trojans without allowing a try to be scored  against them. The final was a  well played physical battle  with both teams playing excellent rugby.  The Trojans opened the scoring with a fine passing play  and overlap on the wing and  took the ball in for the try.  The convert was wide and the  score at the half was 4-0 for  the Trojans;  In the second half Gibsons  began to take more control of  the. game and wear down their  opponents. Late in the game  Gibsons wias awarded three  consecutive penalties and on  the third Alex Skytte ran the  ball to the short side of the  field and into* the end-zone for  a try. The convert was kicked  from a difficult angle and  sailed wide. At the end of regulation time the game was tied  4-4 with sudden death overtime  From the start Gibsons took  complete control and pushed  the Trojans deep into their  own zone. At the ten minute  mark Gibsons was awarded a  penalty and from about 15  yards out Tom Blain split the  uprights to give Gibsons the  victory and the winning trophy.  Gibsons next league gaitne  will be Saturday, March 8 at  Langdale Elementary school  field. Kick-off is at 1 p.m.  Basketball  Elphinstone school Cougar  basketlballers have reached the  finals in the Senior Boys "trii-  ���Zone tourney. Thus they achiev  ed by defeating Agassiz Chieftains over the weekend in a  three game tourney with two  other teams.  In the first with Aldergrove  Totems, Elphinstone won 80-72.  Leigh Wolverton 28. Frank Havies 211 and Wayne Smith 17  were high scorers.  They next met St. Pat's  Stocks and won 94-88 with Wolverton and Havies netting 26  each and Smith 17. In the final  against the Agassiz team Elphie won 191-70 with Wolverton netting 29, Smith 22 arid  Kerry Bjornson 16.  Havies and Wolverton were  chosen for the first all star  tearn and Smith for the second  team. Most valuable player  was Lome Wolverton.  The answer to  For years the greatest fear  in aimian's life wias to be poor.  It was about the worst thing  that couldi happen. In fact,  that could happen. But gradually that's changing. In fact  nowadays, you can get subsidized housing, health care and  dental care, university scholar  ships and various other welfare benefits, provided' you're  poor enough. All you need, to  enjoy many of the advantages  of life, is proof that you are  disadvantaged.  Nobody can complain about  that It's human and kind. Hojw  ever, in curing poverty, society  has created another problem  group. And that's the middle  class.  Nobody- wants to be middle  class any more because the  middle class has an awktwatd  amount of money too much to  be eligible to live as well as  the poor, too little to live as  the rich. The middle class wage  earner is c&ugfhrt in between.  Instead of living downtown  (like the rich and the poor) the  poor saijp has to buy a crummy  lot 35 miles:from town because  that's all he can afford. And  then he spends the rest of his  life trying to pay his bills, educate the kids, and meet tjhe  mortgage because nobody will  help him out If poverty gets  any more attractive, this is the  sort of thing we may run into  at the ofifi|ce:  "Mr. Goodie, I wonder if I  could speak to you a minute?"  "What is it Smedley, 1'ni  poor   should  share   with   the  busy."  "It's about my  salary, Mr.  Goodie, I wohder if you could  give me a decrease."  ��� "You   had   a  decrease   less  than a year ago Snjedley."  "I know sir, I wouldn't ask  if it Wasn't important,  but Tin sure I could use less  money."  "What size decrease did you  have in mind?"  "I wias hoping for a $25 cut  in salary."  'Twenty-five dollars! That's  a big slide Smedley. What have  you done to merit it?"  "I've worked for the company, for 23 years, Mr. Goodie.  And I've never let you down.  My work has always been up  to standard."  "I realize that Smedley. But  $25. Wouldn't you be satisfied  Jwitlh a $15 cut? We have a  budget right now. We're already below last year's salary  figures. And I hear the union  is furious tax wise."   Y  'IMr. Goodie, a $15 cutback  is better than nothing, but my  wife and I had our hearts set  on a $2*5 decrease."  "How about $20?"  'Uf I made $25 less, we'd be  eligible for an aparbmenit in  the city's new development.  ���The one downtown with a pool  and sauna and tennis' court-  Besides, my son would qualify  for a government scholarship  arid we could get his teeth  fixed."  "You drive a hard bargain  Smedley.  But you win. You get a $25  decrease on this condition. If  your work slips, ybu'll take a  $10 raise, no questions asked"  "Bless you Mr. Goodie."  "And Smedley, will ybu invite  me over for tennis and a swim  some night when you get in  your new place?" Y  "'Certanly  sir,  I believe the  less fortunate."  From the Calgary Realtor.  Wed. Thurs.
