Earlier pressures  on the school board' resulted  in a Langdale Kindergarten.  The concern now is over the  quality of the Langdale Elementary school:  A delegation of parents led  by Shirley Macey confronted  the board with a list of griev-  ancesY "Thursday because as  one mem'ber stated, "we do  fetel we're being ignored."  TThe grievances, asout-iriedin  parents' brief presented to the  board, deal with a shortage of  teachers, lack of full time remedial reading teacher and  music program, bus shortage,  lack of classroom space, necessity for a full size library  and gymniaauim,neces5ity for  a neiw office 'area large e-  nough for a principal's office  and a secretary's reception  area.  ^e brief also suggests the  existing library be remodelled  to a remedial classroom and  remodelling of the existing  office to a book, visual aid,  and paper storage area.  Gibsons Elementary school  is overcrowded, the brief states,  and it suggests expanding  Lanlgdale to a full school facility by escfpand&n'g the boundary area for the school.  'IToo mutdh time and money  has been sg>ent deciding on, a  new school site in the Sechelt  area and we feel our school  and area has been ignored and  is expanding so very fast."..  "I emjpathize with the group  but there are certain legal anki  fmanca&l limitations;,", school  Superintendent John Denley  said.

Rieicent a concerns over firearms use in the populous area  below the powerline has forced  the Regional Board to take this  action.  The board earlier sent letters  to the Sechelt Rod?and Gun  Club, the Gibsons Wildlife  club and other interested parties asking for opinions. Since  no negative reactions have  been received the board has  given notice that drafting of  the firearms bylaw will start  in 30 days.

He said these: students  moved from Langdale to Gibsons in midHterm arid they  Were allowed to continue on  at Langdale school. He added  that there were students in  Langdale who lived within  three iniies of the sdhool and;  who Shouldn't have been allow  ed to ride, on the bus.  Discussions also dealt with  those students who live in one  area anid out of preference attend school in another area.  Denley said this causes probr  lems in board evaluation of  the number of teachers and  buses required, and also confuses the finances.  <fYou can't just say that a  kid can go anyiwttiere ��� I  think the board Should take  a stand on this," Denley told  the board.  -��� Indications are that Langdale  parents will not get immediate  results on their recommendations. But they have made  their grievances known to the  board. N  "We have tried for eight  years," Shirley Macey told  trustees.

Areas ji  sewer  {Regional board representatives for areas B, D and F, and  the village of Sechelt made a  resolution at Thursday night's  board meeting to jointly enter  into, a sewage disposal function.  Norm Watson, acting Regional Board Chairman and reprer  sentative for the village of Sedhelt, made the proposal for the  joint sewage function at an  earlier meeting saying that  sudh a venture would be advantageous to everyone.  Watson also brought the proposal before Sechelt council  several weeks ago explaining  that it would, be advantageous  for the village to opt into the  Regional district's sewage function because the financing  would be done through that  body therefore not affecting  the village borrowing power \  ���with Municipal Finance Authority.  At Thursday's regular Regional District meeting in Sechelt Watson asked directors  for their reactions to the proposal  : "I'm not trying to press anybody ��� the function doesn't  mean we're going to build a  sewer ��� it just means we have  the machinery to finance the  sewer if one is needed," Watson said.  He said the village of Sechelt  is determined to take the sewage resolution before the public. "My council is convinced  that it is advantageous to both  the village and the Regional  District that the sewlage function be built as a specified area  under  the  Regional District."  "I susipect some areas in the  Regional District may wish to  plug into this plant ��� I won't  go into any more detail than  that," Watson sad.  Directors Hoemiberg (Halfmoon Bay), Ironside (Roberts  Cerek), and MeNevin (Langdale) reacted favorably to the  .proposal. Other directors would  make no commitment until further input has been obtained  from constituents.  SMOKE BILLOWS out of the week the air may be clean as  stacks at Canadian Forest Pro- a provincial pulp and paper  ducts mill at Port Mellon. Next"' workers   strike  looms  on  the  horizon.  Strike Booms at mill  Members of the Canadian  Paperworkers Union local 1119  have voted overwhelmingly in  favor of strike action against  Canadian Forest Products at  Port Mellon.  Ron McPhedran, president of  local 1119 told the Coast NeWs  Sunday that local C&ni^rerii-  ployees voted 85 % in favor of  striking. The union executive  earlier rejected the Canfor of- ;  fer which proposes that no gen-.*  eral wage increase be giyen  and that cost of living adjustments to present salaries be  continued every quarter between July 1975 _ndL April,  1976. Indications are that other  locals in the province have also  voted to strike.  The B.C. Forest Industry  launched a strong attack on 7  union pay demands last week:  stating the industry which represents about 50 percent of the.  provincial economy, is' in danger of becoming unprofitable  and "withering- away unless  costs Of all kinds are brought  under control."  Executives of the forest industry said rising costs ��� especially labor costs ��� are making the < industry non-competitive in the world market place.  They   said productivity   must  Outdoor ed.  must wait  A proposal made by a; teachers' outdoor education committee a few weeks ago lias received favorable reaction from the  Sdhool Board but the crucial  question now is where does  the money come from?  Referring to the outdoor education committee's suggestion  that ��� $10,000 - $15,000 be allotted for student transportation  to educational sites, school superintendent John Denley asked, "How can you get the money if you haven't budgeted for  it?"  He said a good outdoor education program was needed but  no resolutions should be maclc-  at this time because he would  be busy with problems of an  emergency nature until August.  Secretary - treasurer Roy  Mills said it was possible but  not probable that the board  could obtain the transportation  funds this year. He said the  board could either go into a  deficit or use surplus funds,  if any, out of the present transportation budget.  : increase if the industry is to  ; provide continued work opportunities.  Peter Bentley, Forest Industrial  Relations  chairman  and  president of Canfor said last  k week, "We want the peoiple of  ':. the province and our employees to understand where we on  the industry side of the fence  . are: our backs are to the wall.  . Any unjustified wage increases  RON MCPHEDRAN  granted would be of no benefit to them. They may get good  paper wages but be out oS  wortc."  "We have reached the point  in the industry's struggle for  survival that having been  caught between demands of all  levels of government and labor,  we have been squeezed to the  point where we must reverse  the trend if in the mutual interest of all concerned there is  to be a viable future," Bentley  said.  Local 1119 president Ron McPhedran said last week that  local Conifor employees 'vfeel  insulted by the company's silly  offer." He said the proposal to  continue the COLA clause is  no improvement because the  union already bargained for  that two years ago.  McPhedran said the union is  asking for a $1.50 anhour wage-  increase, a 37% Thqur work  week, and improvements in  welfare. He indicated the demands were not excessive and  completely inline with other  provincial wage increases. The  base rate at Port Mellon is  presently $5.10 an hour.  Asked about Canadian Forest  Products being uip against a  Wall McaPhedran said, "it's a  pretty amazing wall." He said  the company had just closed a  $17% million deal wihich gives  them control of a group of  companies including Burrard  Drydock. "The firm is in good  shape," McPhedran said.  He also believes the forest  industry initiated the program  of holding back wage increases  last spring and that employeet.  are being used as pawns.  "Our people won't stand for  that," he added.  With all locals of the CPU,  IWA and PPWC voting in favor of strike action, 40,000 B.C.  workers could put a halt to all  pulp and paper operations in  the province this summer. Union executives are meeting later this week to decide when  the strike will take effect.  Locally the strike will directly affect over 500 employees at  Port Mellon. CPU members  here total about 375.  New gravel plant announced  Construction of a new gravel  plant near Port Mellon, costing  in excess of five million dollars  nearing    completioh.    The  is  plant is owned by Construction  Aggregates Ltd., and Should  be operational in July.  Employment will be provided for about 11 men who will  be transferring from other  company operations. Development of the new plant is on  the site formerly occupied by  Hillside Sand & Gravel Ltd.,  up to about 12 years ago.  The new plant will initially  produce road base and asphalt  blend gravel for the construction industry. At a later date,  a washing plant may be added  to produce concrete aggregates.  Design of the new plant in  corporated all the pollution and  safety requirements currently  in effect. Land reclamation was  also studied by an agronomist  to ensure proper revegetation  will result on completion of  gravel extraction.  Tom Bethune, general manager of Construction Aggregates Ltd. suggests that "with  the construction of this nejw  plant, the Lower Mainland construction industry is assured of  quality road base and asphalt  Wend aggregates for the next  20 years." Shipments will be  made from the site in 4,000 to  10,000 ton capacity barges.  The new Hillside plant will  replace a smaller facility at  Britannia Beaoh being closed  due to depletion of reserves.

Return  postage guaranteed  Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons, BX  A necessity for controls  The federal government has come around to the  conclusion that if all else fails to hold the line in the battle 'against inflation, controls on wages and prices will  become necessary.  The finance minister arrived at this conclusion because under present circumstances controls could provide  the most direct response. A Toronto newspaper reported  the argument for or against compulsory controls turned,  in Mr. Turner's mind, oil public acceptance. He did not  think that point had been readied but he did not say on  what he based that judgment. He could have assessed  public views quite readily in his consensus discussions  but he preferred to stick to business 'and labor who supplied . balancing views, as was expected.  "In contrast to the situation in 1973 and 1974 when  our inflation primarily reflected international forces,  and controls couldn't possibly have worked, we are now  faced with escalating domestic costs in an under-employed economy. In these circumstances controls could provide the most direct response to the problem," he saidv  "Thus . . . we do not reject controls in principle. Indeed, in one respect, they would have had an advantage  over a voluntary consensus. By using the power of the  law to make all groups obey the rules, each Would have  had the assurance that all would be making a contribution."  Subsidies five years ago lto keep prices from rising exorbitantly would have kept labor costs down and  not created a situation in which labor could escalate its  demands at will because of the government's turning  power to control over to labor.  The government preferred to continue adding more  printed money 'and the cheaper the money the more labor  demanded, resulting in a continued depreciation of the  consumer dollar.  There Will be those who will knock holes in that argument but they Should remember that while numerous  experts maintained controls will not work they failed to  explain why they would not work. Hon. Mr. Turner's  budget remarks indicated that price and wage controls  were hovering in the mind of government. The idea controls will not work is apparently not too solidly instilled  in government thinking. ���*  We must face the fact that wages and salaries rose  14.6 percent between April last year and April this year  and with wage settlements increasing percentagewise for  future months the 14.6 does not seem to be the ceiling by  the time April 1976 arrives.  The international Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has urged the federal  government to introduce a prices and income policy with  little delay.  In its annual review of the Canadian economy, it  emphasized that while a voluntary policy based on national censensus is preferable to statutory controls, it  may be desirable to have short term legislation if agreement on safeguards cannot be reached.  Perhaps this will happen!  *  "With a single stroke of the brush," said the schoolteacher taking his class through the National Gallery,  "Joshua Reynolds could change  a smiling face into  a  frowning one."  "So can my mother," said one of the small boys.  5 to 25 years ago  The following is part two of  a four part series written by  Nisson Goldham dealing with  ���citizens' rights and limitations  when faced with an arrest.  Last week, the author dealt,  with what to do when stopped  for questioning and the search  of your person. This week deals  with the search of your premises.  As a general rule no one has  a right to enter where you live,  unless you or some other authorized person has given permission to do so. Anyone doing so without authorization is  a trespasser under the law and  you may use reasonable force'  to remove the individual and  you are entitled to sue for damages if ahy are incurred. You  should be aware however, that  if you use more force than is  necessary to remove a trespasser, you will be liable for assault.  But remember a policeman  may enter where you live with-,  out your authorization if:  1. He has a "Writ of Assise  tance" which may be issued to  policemen responsible for en-  Five Years Ago  A grou_> of 21 Los Angeles  "Boy Scouts and four leaders,  at Camp Byng praised the  camp for its scouting facilities.

This writ may be used during  both daytime and nighttime  hours.  2. He has a Search Warrant  which has been given to a particular person to search a premise for an object and generally only during the dlay-light  hours; or ,  3. The policeman is acting  under a provincial law such as  . the Government Liquor A.ct of  British     Columbia.     Presume  that all proyiricial liquor control legislation gives a similar  power to search your premises  unless  you  know  differently.  Remember that the powers of  search given under such laws  Tare strictly defined and a po-  ���Yliceman is in the wrong if he  Yuses for one purpose the powers given to him for another.  4. He is pursuing someone  who has been found committing a crime and is fleeing from  the scene; or  5. To prevent the doing of  ���an offence which would cause  injuries to any person, e.g. to  prevent some kind of criminal  violence.  Remember a policeman can  enter where you live only at  your invitation or pursuant to  a specific authorization. Where  he claims to have written authorization you have the right to  see it and deny entry if he refuses.  '  However, if he refuses to justify his entry and/or shows his  statutory authority and forces  his way in, then:  1. Phone the police station  and complain;  2. Enquire, at a later time,  into starting an action for damages for "trespass."  In this circumstance as in  all others, insist upon your  rights only to the point where  you fear violence and remember all the important facts:  identification of the policeman,  time, plaice, . conversations,  threats, as well as the names of  all persons who can tell what  happened.

Over the last several months,  I have had quite a numiber of  enquiries from people in our  constituency regarding property taxes, and therefor I would  like to devote this column to  explaining how the tax credit  Program will operate in 1975.  First, all eligible home Owners will receive the basic $200  home owners grant as in 1974.n  Then they will reiceiv e minimum of $30.00 and up to a  maximum of $80.00 on the  school tax removal (grant.  Home owners aiged 65 and over  will receive a further $50 addition to the home owners grant  after the school tax removal  portion has been calculated.  Basically this means the minimum grant to homeowners  under 65 will be $230 (maximum $280) and the minimum  grant to those 65 and over will  be $280 (maximum $330).  The school tax removal portion of your tax credit is determined by taking 40 percent of  the difference between $200  (the basic home owners grant)  and the gross school taxes, but  ths grant has a -maximum of  $80 in 1975. Last year the maximum was $40.  Some senior citizen home  owners will be receiving a property tax refund of between $1  and *$20 this year, because legislative amendments have been  placed before the House to ensure   that   senior   citizens  re-  Sixth spring  piano recital  The sixth annual spring piano recital of Arlys Peters was  held on June 6 at Calvary Baptist Church, Gibsons.

Many of you have written to me on this point,, and  the chages have been made to  reflect your views.  I recognize that inflation has  resulted in larger property tax  ncreases this year than was the  case in 1974. However, the provincial government cannot con-,  trol municipal mill rate increases. Nevertheless, we hane  made an extra $20 million available to municipal governments this ear as their share of  increased revenue from the export of natural gas. I hope they  use portions of this first-time  revenue sharing money to reduce property taxes.  Our school tax removal program is in the second year of a  five year program. Additionally, Education Minister Dailly  has made supplementary grants  available to school districts in  1975. However, our government  has a responsibility to live  within its budget while meeting its commitments to finance  other, much needed programs.  SUPERIOR?  ELECTRIC  CO. .  SECHELT,  B.C.

Prior to  that $50,000 was spent on the  open area for other problems.  Rempel said both students  and teachers were unhappy  with the open area because it  was crowded and dingy. He  praised the board for allowing  input on the design for the  present $90,000 alteration.  In the meantime school trustees decided Thursday that an  extra classroom built in the.  existing covered play area at  Gibsons Elementary would be  more of an asset than the portable classroom now on order  for that sichool.  The board revealed that renovating the play area and turning it into a classroom could be  done at the same cost as leasing a portable for one year.  The decision was handed  over to the building and  grounds committee for further  consideration.

School Trustee Celia Fishei  thought she would taok on a  little addendum to her report  at last Thursday's school board  meeting by asking trustees to  endorse a Union Board of  Health policy stating that non-  nutritious foods be banned in  district schools.  O.K, said the board, would  Trustee Fisher make a motion  to that effect. The motion was  made but before it could be  carried, someone asked if it  meant the school would not be  allowing vending machines  No, it was decided, because  some vending miaichines carry  apples and oranges, milik and  chocolate bars ��� chocolate  bars can be a nutritious1 food.  They give you instant energy.  Trustee Maureen Clayton  clarified the issue somewhat  /when she said non-nutritious  foods were things like pop and  potato chips.  That's clear enough.  "But what about aU the  dances and basketball games,"  asked vice - principal Larry  Grant. "It would be better to  operate concession stands at  these events than have students  running across the street.M  Agreed.  Trustee Agnes Labonte said  the motion should be clarified  to read vending machines containing pop and junk foods  should not be allowed because  they substitute for lunches.  But Trustee Pat Murphy felt  the board should not outlaw  such vending machines because  that would be encroaching on  business.  "Business ��� in our schools?"  retorted Trustee Fisher.  And so the original motion  was retracted and died a horrible death in a shroud of confusion.  Send it down to the policy  committee, the board decided,  they can chew over the problem for a while.

No commitment to Bowen  A delegation from Bowen Island representing the Bowen  Island Recreation Committee  and the Bowen Island Community School Association left  school board offices Thursday  with part of their requests satisfied.  The group, headed by Claus  Spiekerman asked the board at  Thursday night's regular meeting for acceptance Of three recommendations. These recommendations are:  ���that the 'Sedhelt School District formally recognize and  thereby encourage the establishment of the Bowen Island  Community School Association.  ���that twfo representatives  from the Seichelt Stehool board  and two representatives from  the Greater Vancouver Regional District be assigned to serve  on the Bowen Island Community School Council.  ���that a cost sharing formula,  covering both capital and operating, be arrived at between  the Sechelt School District and  Che GVRD regarding the Bowen Island Community School.  The community school proposal was initially introduced  at a meeting on Bowen Island  June 20, and Thursday in Gibsons, Spiekerman again outlined the concept for the board.  He said Bowen Island has  limited recreation facilities  and that maximum use must  be made of the facilities avail  able. He said the philosophy  behind the community school  concept is that students, adults,  seniors ������ everyone could make  use of the sdhool building.  He also said the association  would not limit itself to use of  the school facilities but would  also sit down with school officials and work out a curriculum and sdhool policy.  The committee indicated approval of the concept had been  given by education officials in  Victoria and the GVRD and all  that was needed was approval  from the Sechelt School board.  The Bowen delegation had no  problem in receiving board ap-  poval for the first two recommendations but there was a  certain hesitation for the third.  "The concept is so pure, it is  absolutely right" Superintendent John Denley told the  group, "but the problem is  funding."  "Where does the money come  from?" he asked  The board gave approval to  the first two recommendations  because as one trustee noted  "it doesn't commit us at all."  Trustee Maureen Clayton and  secretary-treasurer Roy Mills  were named to the Bolwen Island School Council as outlined  in recommendation two. The  community concept and the  problem of funding will be studied further.  O.E.S. tea  Work parties are now making last minute preparations  for the Order of Eastern Star  summer Tea.

A CRITICAL SITUATION:  B.C. IS LOSING ITS ABILITY  TO COMPETE IN  WORLD MARKETS  Many British Columbians are seriously  concerned with the economic dangers  facing the province and the country.  The forest companies of B.C., recognizing the importance of the industry as  50 per cent of the provincial economy,  are also concerned, particularly with  keeping their products competitive  in world markets.  A statement setting out the critical  issues facing the industry was presented  recently to the unions representing the  people who work in the industry���the  International Woodworkers of America,  the Canadian Paperworkers Union,    .  and the Pulp, Paper ahd Woodworkers  of Canada.  That industry statement is reproduced  here for those who wish to consult the  full text.  We have given the. most careful consideration to all factors involved in collective  bargaining with the three major unions which  represent the industry-s employee work  force, including of course, all points and  arguments made by the union at the  bargaining table. This-consideration has  taken place within the context of the industry's threefold responsibility: to the community as a whole, to its employees, to its  . investors and shareholders.  Careful consideration  It is only after such careful consideration  that the industry has arrived at a definitive  end position in these contract negotiations.  You and your membership are entitled to  know our reasons for adopting this position,  and because of the importance of forest  products to the economy of British  Columbia, the community should also know.  The dilemma which confronts the industry  is the clash between vital economic considerations and long-term security en the  ��� one hand.-and on the other hand, the-  pressure to ignore economics for the sake  of accommodating union demands.  Real interests  The industry has concluded, unlike some  occasions in the past, that economic considerations must prevail in order to serve  the real interests of-al! who depend on  forest products for employment, public tax  revenue and investment opportunity.  The consideration which underlies all others  is fhe absolute need to be competitive in  world markets during all phases of the  cyclical changes which characterize the  forest products industry. Much has been  said in the past about export industry's need  to be competitive. But repetition of what  should be a self-evident truth must not be  allowed to erode the credibility of that truth  because of its fundamental importance  to the major base of British Columbia's   .  . economy.  Undermined  That ability to compete has been seriously  and increasingly undermined in recent years.  In both wood and pulp products, British  Columbia producers increasingly find themselves in a competitive position only when  demand is strong and there is a shortage  of product.  The main reason for B.C.'s declining  competitive capability is, of course, a relative  disadvantage in production cost compared  to other producing areas. The principal  factors in this regard are:  ��� B.C. forest industry wage rates have  been the highest in the world for some time.  The wage levet is an important element in  the cost of production and the B.C. industry  suffers a serious disadvantage, even  compared to the U.S. Pacific Northwest.  This is an area with which B.C. is in direct  competition and one which traditionally has  had the highest rates in the United States.  Rates there during the past year have in  some cases been close to a dollar per hour  behind B.C; In fact, recent settlements in  both wood.products and pulp in that area  have produced new base, rates which are  still well behind those which have existed in  B.C. for the past year.  Financial burden  ��� Government policy with respect to  stumpage rates, taxation levels, Workers'  Compensation Act, factories regulation and  pollution control has placed a sharply  increased financial burden on the industry-  one which is much heavier than that borne  by our competitors in other-producing  areas. Whatever advantage B.C. once enjoyed, which was used as justification for  .the higher B.C. wage rates, has now disappeared and our total cost of manufacturing is high in comparison to all other  producing areas.  ��� Union opposition has denied the industry  necessary flexibility of shift scheduling  (applies to IWA only):       ���    :  Difficulties  �� Even after several years of very poor  earnings, the" return on investment during  the last couple of good years' was still  insufficient to permit the plant improvement  and expansion necessary to satisfy future  world demand and create new jobs.   .  We are very much aware of the difficulties  created by wage settlements made in both  the public and private sector of the com- ���  munity by employers such as B.C. Hydro,  food chains and municipalities, who are  able to pass on the cost of settlements tp  either taxpayers'or customers,~as the case  may be. This situation is one that must be  remedied, because it is threatening the  economic security of British Columbia, The  solution, however, does not lie in the  direction of ignoring the economic future  of B.C.'s key industry and trying to match  wage settlements that disregard the disciplines and pressures in the world market.  During current negotiations we have endeavored to explain these problems to you  in the hope that there would-be some  recognition of them and a positive response  that would establish a foundation upon  which collective bargaining cou(d proceed.  Unfortunately, there is no evidence that the  union recognizes the economic problems  of the industry and specifically no recognition of its need to be in a fair cost  relationship to its competitors in the world  .markets. You have failed to recognize the  wage relationship between B.C. industry  and its world competitors.  Industry position  In light of this failure to obtain union recognition of basic economic problems, the  .industry has no choice but to adopt a  definitive end position in these negotiations.  It is a position that recognizes the need  to begin the process of restoring a fair  ���competitive relationship for the industry and  at the same time afford some protection for  the wages now.earned.by industry employees���your members.  Our position istherefore as follows:  1. The present 240 per hour which was  generated by the Cost of Living formula,  and which legally terminates on the expiry  date of the collective agreement, will be  continued on a floating basis.  2. Further increments based on increases  in the Consumer Price Index will be made  quarterly in accordance with the following  schedule:  (a) July. 1st���The difference between  Statistics Canada Consumer Price Index  May, 1975'and the index for February,  .    1975. ���������'.��� '      ��� '  ���   . i   ���  .(b) October 1st���The difference between  Statistics Canada Consumer Price Index  August, 1975 and the index for May,  ��� 1975. ���-.

Funds for local group home  The Group Home Committee  of the Wilson Creek Community Association has announced  that the Group Holme proposal  for the Sumlshine Coast has  been approved by the Minister  of Human Resources Hon. Norman Levi.  One of the outstanding reasons for official acceptance has  been the overwhelming community support. 'Following an  initial release concerning the  proposal, phone calls and letters of support have been nonstop. The committee thanks all  those people who sent their  letters of support; without  them the proposal would not  have been so successful.  The official opening is ex  pected to be later this fall at  which time those who endorsed  the project and all those interested in the Group Home will  be invited to the opening ceremony.  The therapeutic group home  will accommodate tip to eight  children from all communities,  on the Sunshine Coast. Ages of  these children will range from  six to seventeen. A qualified  staff will provide treatment  and an encouraging environment for our local families in  crisis situations.

The Walter Morrison Memorial Trophy started on. May 7.  The losers of the first round  went in a Consolation Flight.  The big winners for the trophy  were Iva Peterson and An'djy  Gray. They won in a close  match with Wilmia and Bert  Sim. Tough luck Wilma and  Bert. Let's hope the third year  in a row will treat you better.  The Consolation Round winners, happy to say, are Rita  and Ozzie Hincks who nosed  out Audrey Jost and Al Boyes.  This tournament is a full handicap best ball. Next year we  should be able to double the  entries.  Sunday June 8 saw our annual Presidents vs. Vice-Presidents Tourney. The vice-presidents won which meant they  received a free lunch courtesy,  of the memlbers of the ; presidents team. The low 20 net  players from this tournament  went into the Calcutta Pool ol  two man teams, otherwise  known as Horses.  These horses went to the  post at 8:00 ajn. on Sunday,  June 22. After they had all  completed their 18 holes and  some hot favorites fell by the  wayside almost at the first  hurdle. The first team an_ big  winners were Chris Kankainem  and his playing partner (not a  jockey)    Ted    Kurluk.    They  wound up with net 54. Some  golf! In seoond plaice, somewhat  of a longshot were Jim Mc-  Ewan and Victor Marteddu  with a snappy 58. Followed by  a dead heat for third but closing fast in the stretch Al Boyes  with Joe Horvath and the other  pair of Joe Kampman and! Ozzie Hincks. Their score was a  net 60. This is a regular event  kainem.  and   gathering   more   interest  eadh year.  Our annual interclub with  Powel River was held recently  with the locals turning it on  with a commanding 20-4 .point  lead.

A special graduation for Annette  By ROB DlfKSTEA  Fifteen year old Annette  Murjphy of School Road, Gibsons has just graduated from  grade nine. She has won the  Sir Arthur Pearson award for  tojp student and her name has  once again been placed on the  honors role.  Besides an illu'strious aoadem  ic standing, Annette can also  show you trophies for car rallies, trophies for ice skating  and skiing and trophies for piano and clarinet.  Now in any kind of ordinary situation you could say  that Annette is a rather high  quality student. But when it's  revealed that Annette has grad  mated from the Jericho Hill  School in Vancouver and that  sftie is near blind you've got to  admit her achievements are  quite a fait accompli.  Annette is the daughter of  Elizabeth and Kevin Murphy  who have lived in the Gibsons  area for some ten years after  moving here from Newfoundland. Annette says she doesn't  hlave many friends in Gibsons  yet because she has never  spent any time here. At Jericho, she and about 50 other  blind students studied, ate,  slept, and played. For the past  nine years Jericho was her life.  And she's quite happy and  proud of the experience.  For one thing, Annette says,  the cirieula is much tougher  than in ordinary schools.  "They've got it easy up  here," she says, "I know some  kids in the ordinary slchools  anid we're wiay ahead of them."  And for another thing, the  facilities at Jericho described  by Annette are fantastic. There  is a heated swimming pool, a  gymnasium, a bowling alley,  there are bicycles built for two,  there are even regular hockey  games played with pop cans  so they can be heard even if  they can't be seen.  Annette tells the story of the  time her two brothers, Shawn  and Kevin, spent a weekend  with her at Jericho and they  were both shocked and amazed  to see all the things that blind  people could do.  "I have nothing but praise  for Jericho Hill," said Annette's  mother. ^Without it we would  have never made it because  there just aren't the facalities  here."  And as Mrs. Murphy talks  about how glad she and her  husband are to have her daughter hack home ("my telephone  bills will be much lower now")  she also says something about  pity.  "���Pity," she says, "is something we never give Annette."  {She needs some help but she  HOT AND COLD  Canada's lowest official temperature reading was ���_4C  (���81 deg. F), recorded at Snag  in the Yukon Territory in February 1947. The highest official  temperature reading was 46C  (115 deg. F), recorded at Glei-  chen, Alberta in July 1903.  ANNETTE MURPHY working at her Braille typewriter.  can   easily take    care of   the  house." Annette agrees and  adds that she dMikes carrying  her white cane because it  seems to invoke pity in people.  Asked if she's sad to leave  Jericho, Annette says she's  never really thought about it  yet. "Maybe in September I'll  miss it."  In September she will be go  ing into grade ten at Elphinstone Secondary taking a regular program. Lake the other  ingenious little thinigs she'js  devised to help make her life  a little bit easier, she'll be take  hug her notes on a tape recorder instead of copying thean  from the black-board.  And after that does she plan  to go on to University ? "No,  Annette says, She wants to go  out and work for a while, maybe as a switchboard operator.  She's already had experienlce  doing that part time at Jericho.  Whatever Annette does in  this world, she is not, in the  words of her mother, going to  be a drop-out. She's probably  going to stand by that academ-  is. award just received, and by  the philosophies of the man  that it honors ��� Sir Arthur  Pearson. He was a newspaper  man who, after going blind in  the First World War, decided  to dedicate his work to the^  blind and show the world ithat"  these people were not going to  be left behind in the dank.

I enjoyed the big bloke's company  Retirement of George Cooper  from the position of elementary education supervisor in  this sdhool distract recently  drew from speakers who knew  __im well, words of commendation, at functions held) for  the purpose of honoring him.  At these functions people  who knew Mr. Cooper well  supplied information about  him. At the first such event  retired teacher Cloe Day expressed herself by asking a  question.  "The queston was: Can you  give us some statistics and  background information about  George Cooiper?  "You can guess the first reaction ��� Let George do it! How  ever, this did not seem quite  the time for letting George do  anything about it, and since I  have known him only since  1&57, I did the next best thing  and let Mrs.  George do it!:  "Bo here are his vital statistics: Born in England several  years ago. Brought to Canada  about two or three years later.  Lived in Prince Albert, Sask.  until through high school.  Graduated from Steuskatoon  Normal School and taught in  various one-room schools sever  al years. Got his BA at Uin_i-  versity of Saskatchewan with  majors in English and1 History.  Joined the army, Regina Rifles, attained the rank of Major, landed in Normandy on  D-Day. Met an army nurse in  England, a grad from Vancouver General, and he and  Evelyn were married in 1943.  (Left the army, taught and studied for a year in Vancouver,  then taught in Kimberly for 10  years where he became principal of Blarcbment Elementary School. Moved to Elphinstone as vice-principal in 1957  "I know that as a teacher  and administrator he is the  kinid of fellow you can get hop-  pingHUjpJand-dotwn mad-in-the  face at and yet get over it in  a very short while and know  that he isn't holding a grudge  either. _���      .,  "I wonder how-come I could  work willingly with the big  bloke, enjoy his company and  half-baked wit, seek him out  for a serious discussion when  I was reasonably sure we  would disagree, and just generally feel comfortable with  him. I think there are two re-  sons: _  "First, he likes kidte and has  faith in the little devils, never  doubting that if you can bide  the monsters through that  tough period and stick with  them long enough, they will  " come out all right.  "Second, George has a fine  sense oif loyalty. I have never  heard him run down a member  of his class or his staff ��� not  even wjhen there had been  sharp disagreement and hard  words between them. On the  other hand, I have heard him  stoutly defend someone who  was getting a bit of bad talk.  from other members of the  establishment and/or the community. .  "Those have to be very valuable character traits that will  live on in the memories of his  co-workers long after George  has taken off for greener pas-  tuxes."  TMs was followed by a larger gathering which heard retired District School Superintendent R.R. Hanna say:  '^GEORGE AlseSTEAD  COOPER ��� Was born in England where his father was a  doctor in the l!st World War  army. His family came to Canada when George was 2 or 3  years old - so he is really a  Canadian.

"George attended the University of Saskatchewan ��� BA  majoring in English and.' History. About this time George  joined the army, the Regina  Rifles. He served with distinction - attained the rank of  major and landed in Normanidy  on the D-Day Invasion of  Europe.  "It was about this time he  met an army nurse - a graduate of Vancouver General ���  n/a med Evelyn Johnston.  Geonge was not a patient his  health excellent - his courage  not impaired - so they got  married1 in 1943.  "Di'steharged from the army  in 1946, George taught in Vancouver, completed his BA at  the same time and went to Kim  ber_ey in 1947. He taught in  the old McKim High School  and became principal of Blar-  chment Elementary in the same;  GEORGE COOPER  area. The Coopers remained in  Kimberly area for 10 yrs. aifter  which they moved to Gibsons  Landing -r that was in 19571  "George was appointed vice-  principal of Elphinstone ��� the  right hand man ofcSyd Potter.  I might add that in September  that year, George Jwrais appointed as the first Diifeictor of the  school   district   night   schools.  "George left Elphinstone to  become principal of Sechelt  Elementary School ��� here, I  believe George started! the  first kindergarten in this area.  One must realize this was an  advanced move because provision for kindergarten has  been made compulsory only  by  S!ept.   15 this  year.  "I should like to quote from  a letter dated June 29/64  Dear Mr. Cooper: This letter  will confirm your transfer  from the prmteipalship of Sechelt Elementary School to the  principal-Chip of Gibsons Landing Elementary School: (Mrs.)  Anne Burns Secretary Treasurer.  From June 1964 to September 1973, George remained at  Gibsons Elementary and saw  many changes in the 'School,  additions of new wings, neiw  open area's, new library area  and so on. Also, many changes  in the teaching ��� open area,  kindergartens, remedial reading programs, school dramas  and a fine choir, field excur  sions, sports programs, plus  teacher aides.  "During this very busy time/  George did not neglect his own  professional advancement. He  continued to attend summer  schools and obtained a Bachelor of Education degree at  UBC and by 1968 had completed a Master of Bcfcuication  degree. His specialities have  been reading education, supervision of reading instruction  and  indivi'dtial testing.  "George has always taken  an active part in his profes^  sional organizations, BCTF  local offices, president of the  Provincial Intermediate Teach  ers' Association, chairman of  In-Service and member of. the  agreements   committees.  "In September 1973, I was  most pleased to have George as  supervisor of elementary instruction for our Sthool District 46. In this comipacity,  George did excellent work for  me and I take this opportunity  to thank him publicly for his  support and help.  "I must point out that Mr.  Cooper has not been a onesided! aleademic and ivory tower school man. During my ^hort  time here, I note that Geonge  has been an active community  minded person ��� serving in  many areas.  "Lately he has as a memlber  of Kiwanis, started an excel  lent project and! pushed forward a Musilc Festival ior the  Sunshine Coast this has been  accomplished by overcoming  items like lack of space, few  music teachers on staff, and so  on. Also, George has devoted  much spare time to building  the Senior Citizens Home project in Gibsons.  "The Coopers have three  sons, David, Edward, and Bryan. It is rumered George's  . grandson, Scott calls his grand  father Papa and that Papa can  do no wrong. So you see that  George has had a busy career  in education -- in raising his  family ~ and in comtminity ser  vice.  "All this was not accomplish  ed without the support and encouragement from his lovely  wife, Evelyn.  "We salute George Astfistead  Cooper."  Also George Cooper by Marie Scott:  George Cooper was my principal in Kimberley and for  nine years at Gibsons Elementary school. In the intervening  years we worked together in  Cranbrook.  Many personal characteristics endeared him to both teach  ers and students. Not only his  inherent belief in children but  also his loyalty to teachers  nuade him a valuable educator.  His ever present keen sense  of humor added to his ability  as an administrator. Kindness  and help in times oi personal  tragedy will not be forgotten.  Gibsons is dbuibly fortunate  in having both George and his  wife Evelyn, a quiet self-effacing helper in the innumerable  community projects in which  both are interested.  Good luck George and Evelyn in the days ahead.��� Marie  R. Scott.
