out that applicant's application had in fact
been rejected although council, has been
instructed to make a connection by 'October 30th. He also advised against accepting connection fees before September, and
advised of the PUC statement that there
had been no undue discrimination.
Commissioner . Fladager suggested thc
lawyer be contacted for further advise and
asked to take another look at the paragraph regarding discrimination.
A letter from the applicant's lawyer,
R. W. Macdonald, asked that council make
further attempts to remedy the situation
regarding water to the motel. He said,
"while the PUC report is an admirable
compromise, the delay will force his client,
Norman Procknow, to establish a temporary water supply at a cost of between two
and three thousand dollars. Other users
in the area have acquired water without
having to go to this expense "
Commissioner Fladager moved the matter be; tabled until a reply is received
from Mr. McQuarrie. He commented that
it was his view the PUC is still not familiar with the way of village operates it's
water system.

MEETING with1 the recently formed Regional District Committee last week in
Sechelt, Mr. C. Woodward "of the Department of Municipal Affairs indicated the
formation could be completed in the very
near future.
Objects of the committee were discussed at length and included; planning, garbage collection and surveys ~re land use.
As live districts have now been approved
for  Gibsons  and Sechelt, Mr.  Woodward
recommended the, committee restrict its
objects Jto .expansion and-improvement of
fire protection as, and when,' needed. As
to water, previously considered a primary
object., it-was recommended that as this
is' actively being pursued by the ARDA.
committee and support has been promised by the Minister, Hon. Frank Richter,
it should be dropped as a Regional District project. However, it was decided to
include  "Power   to   undertake   study   of
water resources."
Regarding garbage, an overall system
from Port Mellon to Egmont was considered advisable .but due to uneconomic
problems of servicing Egmont, and the fact
that Port. Mellon has it's own system, including the mill, it might be necessary to
leave them out. Mr. WoodWard also advised that both councils be. approached with
a view of assertaining their interest.
Dire necessity "of "such, a service was
emphasized by members, one pointing out
by an active committee and will lead off    Tirr)DT.ccnn? i^v;n^r chilis WUT he*   vear.    WaIH   hv   Mike   Blanev    CO-    that certain sources of water supply were    wr?ere.

Mr. Markle Myers, president -of the

besides promoting! ,t|ie area, has proved
a valuable source of revenue. AH spaces
on tho sign are occupied and already
there is a waiting list. Illuminating thc

the Sochelt branch to choose a location
for their sign where there is adequate

TWELVE users of the recently; completed
West. Sechelt, Waterworks j turned ,i but- for
the annual'meeting at which jt:had been
hoped 'to-elect'new- trusteed. Qf .tta? twelve,
five were serving? trustees; andiiiwb, wives
.of.,.trustees. -..AA^A-,-:.-..- - ■■<-.- •■-.-. .-■
Due to the small turnout, it was considered advisable^ to call a further meet-
ing iriSept. mber, at wliichtime it is hoped users will have acquired sufficient interest to attend'in greater number. Election of trustees will", be made at that time.
Trustee Frank Parker said' afterwards,
"it is obvious members are satisfied with
their elected officers but lack of interest
in ^heir $130,000 investment is far from
satisfactory."
Mr. Parker explained that when the
project was under discussion, a large
crowd turned out "now that It is an accomplished fact, they could care less, thc
least| users could,do-is come along to show
their appreciation of the work carried out
to bring it to( reality;" -he said.3
Mr. Parker commented on the tremendous work- carried out- by Chairman Cliff
Thorald, Secretary Mrs. - D. Hayward and
Mr. E. Montgomery/ "They all, put in a
great deal of time to the project which
involved work loss through ' trips to Victoria,"  he said,
A slight deficit has occured this year,
but will decrease as more users avail
themselves of the service. This was, In
part, due to the fact that a few residents
backed out after promising to hook up.
"This applies to an occasional new home
and, in fact, a commercial property" pointed out Mr. Parker. "What many off them
fail to appreciate is that thc more users
wo get, the lower will bo the rates," he
added.

The Village while- stating that, in the  past it had not taken full responsibility  to provide an adequate, water system for  all purposes, it now recognized its responsibility and has been taking steps to increase the capacity of the system so that  all cnstomers and. potential customers can  be adequately served. In 1965 the Village  attempted to improve the supply of water  by constructing an auxiliary three-inch  line from Chaster Creek to its primary reservoir. This line has a maximum capacity of 150,000 gallons per day while in  the dry season it drops to about 50,000  gallons per day. The result is that together  with the available water in the reservoir  from the springs, 170,000 gallons per day  are available for use outside the Village  and the other parts of thc system above  those supplied by the pumping station.  The Village had hoped that this auxiliary  line would solve many of its waterworks  problems, but such proved not to be the  case. The Village hired a firm of Consulting Engineers to report on the waterworks  problems for Gibsons and vicinity. As a  result, an additional well has been drilled  near the existing well and tests have  shown that it has an adequate supply of  water. A by-law is being prepared requesting the electorate to permit the borrowing  of money to improve the water supply and  it is exacted that if this by-law is passed  there will be an adequate supply of water  in 1967.  REVIEW OF   EVIDENCE & ARGUMENT  It is the Commission's opinion that the  Village had sufficient warning by virtue of  the Commission's respective Orders in 1963  (to which reference was made'during the  Hearing) for commencement of an orderly  and systematic improvement in its system  to meet requirements of existing users and  anticipated growth. This it has apparently  'failed to do, and unfortunately Sunnycrest  Motel is a victim of these circumstances.  The problem confronting the Village has  he��n .jiggr^vatcd because .of the general  prosperity of (he area, and the' abnormal  growth in population in recent years. However, thc Commission recognizes that a municipality or village cannot implement a  policy involving a substantial investment  with the same speed with which a public  utility company can act. It is the Commission's view that this factor outweighs,  in this instance, the unfortunate position  of the applicant, even should it, be shown  that applicant assured himself of an ample  supply of water from thc Village prior  to commencement of construction. The  evidence docs not indicate that applicant  received such assurance before hand, if  indeed  at  any time.  The   Commission   considers  that  while  the Village's action since November, 1963  has  not  achieved^ tho desired results, it  .has. taken important steps to'improve?" thc  situation.  It has increased its .supply by  adding  another source;  it has increased  the sj.e of its reservoir capacities;  and  more recently it has found further additional  supplies of water., by successfully  drilling another wo.ll close to its original  one.   In  addition  to  these  positive steps  the'services of "a Consulting Knginoor woro  obtained  nnd  the   benefits  of  his  study  made available? In a report entitled "Gibsons Waterworks Survey," This was filed  with tho  Virago on  November ,23,   1965  and for many very obvious reasons considerable delay ensued before the Village  was cither In a position to consider tho  report or purmlo a course of action onco  il was;",(.growl to, These difficulties have  been overcome and  tho  Vlllafio is currently proceeding io Implement the preliminary recommondatloiis directed toward  making rtvallahlo water In an adequate a^  mount oiit. ido iho Village boundaries.

It seems that the Village overlooked that  its interests and those of a 'public utility  are not necessarily inimical. Furthermore  in considering public utility matters, the  desired results can best be obtained if  the problems are^approached in a manner  using public utility ratemaking, financing  and engineering methods.  Sufficient assurance seems to  been given during the current proceedings that it is expected the Village will,  in future, tailor its utility capital costs  closer,to the actual needs of its customers and that capital costs will no longer  be considered as an operating expense,  thereby avoiding limiting expansion of its  water utility to a policy of "capital out  of income." The Commission is prepared  to allow a reasonable time for these matters to-fall into place, but it not,-as was  shown by the Decision, prepared to grant  unlimited time.  The Commission was unable to reconcile the volumes of water intake and outfall as estimated by the Village for the  summer period. Such discrepancies may  arise since no metering facilities exist at  the primary reservoir for exact measurements either as to inflow or outfall. However, testimony given by the Works Foreman would indicate that even during the  summer months some water was drained  off the primary reservoir in order to save  the Village pumping costs to the secondary system. If this be true, then the  volumes of! reserves as given for the sum-  m&r' months are -'poifs__.ly^  bably inaccurate. In any case it would appear that a greater volume of reserve  could exist at the primary reservoir than  admitted by the Village. For this reason  the Commission considers that the Village  should,-once the new. well is connected,,_  discontinue this practice during the dry  months. Furthermore, authority to make  such a decision should . not rest with a  Works Foreman. Such authority and responsibility should be firmly fixed in top  management of the utility, i.e. with the  Village Commission itself. Hand in hand  with this during the dry months greater  effort should be made by the Village to  conserve its resources at the primary. reservoir so that the needs of users served  by the ^primary system can be met. The  Village should not begrudge a policy of  providing adequate service to its outside  users since these customers are a valuable  asset in making profit for the Village.  . Thc Commission has noted that Counsel for the Village in closing argument  stated that it would hot be long before  the Village could supply the applicant,  However, the Commission agrees that during the current summer months reserves  necessary to serve existing custoniers sufficiently, to provide adequate fire protection, and at thc same time assure a safe  sanitary supply of water could not be met  if the application were granted. Nevertheless, it must consider the words of Counsel for thc Village as a seriously intended 'commitment'. Consequently the applicant should not nor cannot be denied water  indefinitely. Ample time exists for the  Village to provide adequate supplies of water with complementary reservoir capacities, to serve the applicant before the on-  set of the dry season for 1967. Tho Com-  mission considers that no problem should  exist for thc Village after October 30th.  1966 to add Sunnycrest Motel as a user  to its water utility.  It might be noted that tlur applicant  has professed an. alternate supply of water Is available to him, consequently ho  may no longer be Interested in receiving  water froni the Village. In this eventual,  ily the Vlllngo has lost a valuable customer for Its utility and tho applicant has  lost considerable time and money through  failure to open his enterprise earlier,  Counsel for tho applicant argued that  the Village discriminated against h I s  client. The Commission Is prepared to concede 'this .point, However, that there was  undue discrimination against' tho applicant  was not clearly shown, Ak a consequence  the Commission'was clearly guided by the  requirements of tho Public ,Utilities Act.  *** D E CIS (O N ���������-^-����'--~-��.'--~-  ring    WK   -X-r^Z**  Page 4 Sechelt Peninsula Times  Wednesday, June 29, 1966  Health Tips  Canadian Medical Assoc.

Their remarks are far from complimentary and in many instances a telephone cancellation arrives in place of the  expected guest.  With almost three quarters of a million  population  in  the  Lower  Mainland  area,  and   many   of  them  seeking   recreational  space  for   vacations,   etc.,   the  Sunshine  Coast is bound to get an increasing number of visitors as time goes' by. Some will  build   summer   homes   while   others   will  eventually seek retirement in our district.  The  greater proportion,  however,  will be  those  who wish to spend  their vacation,  their  weekends   or  part  of  their   leisure  time  away  from ' the  maddening  rush  of  big  city   conditions.   The  Sunshine  Coast  has everything to offer in the way of natural facilities for vacationers. We are conveniently close at hand arid as more and  more of the Lower Mainland's7 urban population  becomes   aware  of  this  wonderful  area; almost in their backyard, so will the  facilities by which they reach the Sunshine  Coast become of more concern to residents  and visitors alike. These facilities presently  consist   of   two  ferries   in   the   summer  months and one for the rest of the year.  No! Ferries across Howe Sound are  not the answer to our transportation problems. Possibly larger and faster vessels  would help to alleviate the situation but  they will not solve it by any means. We  also need an overland route. Capital expenditure and a year's operating costs of  two suitable ferries would go a long way  toward the construction of a Squamish to  Port Mellon highway, a road link that must  be' built eventually. Why not now?  , .(The Honoroble Mr. Gaglardi has already stated in public Jbhat construction  of the Squ.amiBh��port^ MeElpn highway is  included in his department's future plan-  -ning.-He has stated that it definitely will  be built. But, like the good politician that  he is, he did not say WHEN. 11his column  would suggest that NOW is the time for  action. Construction costs will certainly  not ,be less in the foreseeable future. Increasing automobile traffic to and from  the Sunshine Coast/ both local and tourist,  has" already demonstrated that the two ferries cannot cope with the repeating peak  traffic periods. A highway around Howe  Sound would not be detrimental to the  f.rry   service,   it   would   complement   it  ���>���^^-tf -    _������ ������    ���   n.Tl  ������   . ~ -     - ���   .- -��� ������,^=-.���    .._.. .M. :���~    -���    .T...   -    _    ���_���  Literally hundreds of lower mainland  motorists, who now avoid the district due  to the long and frustrating summertime  delays at the ferry terminals, would have  the choice of an alternate route. Tourists  would enjoy'the scenic 70 to 80-mile drive  and almost anyone, facing a long delay  due to congestion, would perfer to take  the long way round. Completion of this  highway would open up new recreational  areas and the provincial treasury would  benefit from taxes on property, business  and increased gasoline consumption.  The entire Sunshihe Coast area from.  Port Mellon is vitally affected by access  routes to the district, be they by water  or by land. Government, which after aft,  represents the people, should also bej concerned. "Tbe squeaking wheel gets the  grease," so let's do a little squeaking. A  united effort on the part of all organi ,a-  tions, business establishments and individuals who are interested in a highway  route around Howe Sound is our only hope  of success. Let's give it a try.  EGMONT  EYEDROPS  Thirteen up-to-grade-fivers loose in the  big city were the responsibility of Egmont  School Principal Mrs. Gladys MCNutt, on  the June 20 educational tour of Vancouver ... Gladys loved every minute of  it and enjoyed the trip as much as the  youngsters did.

"EGMONT IS A  STREET IN.PENDER HARBOUR,"* This  Is the answer that our daughter, Mrs. Lillian Black, received from B.C. Telephone .  Company   when   requesting   our   number  from,   the   telephone   information   service  when calling from Nanaimo. The conversation went something likeTthis:   "Would -  you please give me the number of John  Dunlop,  at Egmont?"  "Do you know the exchange, or just  -where-is-Egmont?  ��>����  "It is on the Sechelt Peninsula, near  Pender Harbour."  "One moment please." A slight pause  and information came back with those  immortal words, "Jfou are correct, Madam. The number is'so and so and Egmont  is a street in Pender Harbour."  And here are we local yokels kidding  ourselves that Pender Harbour is only a  suburb of Egmont.  Pender Harbour has also -been mislaid  in some official circles. An old friend from  Sacramento, in the person of Bill Hooy*  er, is spending a week's fishing holiday,  together with Charles G. (Bud) Pihera,;,a  buddy of his, at the home of Bill's mother-  in-law, Mrs. Myrtle Dalton. On clearing  through Canadian Customs at White Rock  last week they were asked where they  were going. "To Egmont for a week.s  fishing," sez Bill. "Where's that?" "Up  neat Pender Harbour and about ; forty  miles from Sechelt," answered Bill, and  being a bit of an Egmontonian at heart,  was amazed when the customs officer replied, "Never heard of the first two places,  but we know of Sechelt, so it is O.K. to  be on your way, and good fishing,"  Since their arrival, Bill and Bud have  spent considerable time on the water and  have boated quite a few salmon.  However, all will be well and there  will be no excuse for lower mainland re?  sidents not knowing where the Render  Harbour and Egmont districts are after  July 5th. On that date at 2:15 pJn., viewers of Channels 6 and 8 TV will see a  15 minute documentary on this area.  "Mark" Myers, Ed Lowe and John Bosch  will be included in the cast of local celebrities taking part in this production.

Mrs. Critchell, who is an association teacher of -Trinity College, London,  England, is drama director for the play,  "The Curious Savage," which requires a  cast of 6 girls  and 5 men.  The Arts Council will be responsible  for the sets and they play will be. presented for two nights in Sechelt with one  night showings in Gibsons and Pender  Harbour.    * ��� _  Other suggestions for a fall program  included a proposal by Mr. Klyne Head-  ley that a film club be formed to select  good older films for showing once a month,  accompanied by a Canadian Film Board  presentation. Such a program would give  guidance and direction to young people in  their choice of films.  Also in the fall, the council hopes to  present a return three area presentation  of  Dirk's   Marionettes.  PRESIDENT'S   REPORT  Mr. Ed Burritt summarized the progress of the Arts Council to date. Membership which commenced at 38 has risen to 174 and shows every sign of increasing the upward  trend.

Experience Counts  TIMES fishing columnist Tom Porter, holds up the proof that he  does know what he is talking about  when it comes to fish. This beauty  was'One of two, both in excess of 25  lbs., which he caught last week at  Porpoise Bay.  Fins and Tails  ���By TdnTPortei  ANOTHER month has come and gone so  i thought I would clear my desk of a  few items that drifted  my way in June  and start July nice  and fresh.  There is a new lure now on the-market that" is doing exceptionally well on co-  lio. It is the Henry Smith, lure,  invented  and-manufactured by the <*hap whose name  it bears. Henry makes his home over on  Vancouver Island and'.has. been an ardent  fisherman most of his life.' It has. taken  salmon on the troll-all up and . down-the ,  Strait  and  according  to  Henry,   a   chap  on a research ship .2000 miles out in the  Pacific took a "b.g full" of salmon. There  are different sizes  of the lure .available  but the number.3 seems the most'produc-  . tiye for coho. The demand, right now, is  greater than'the supply so you might have  a little trouble getting one, but more will  soon be available according to Terry "Sur-,  Katch* Raines, ,<  On May 25 this column reviewed some  of the 19G6 Tidal "Water Spurt Fishing Regulations. There are a couple of regulations I think should be repeated since a  number of persons are stfll not too, sure  of them. There is a limit of two chinook  salmqn per day north of a line marked  by fishing boundary signs at Porteau, tho  north end of Anvil Island and McNab  Creek in Howe Sound. Another regulation  that, seems to be causing a bit of confusion is thc one governing the size of Ling  Cod. The regulations state that no one  , ,shall take and retain ling.cod less than  23 (twenty-three) inches, from \tip of nose  to tip of tall.  If you have ,bcen wondering where to  store all that fish you have been landjng  lately, Tyec Rait in Sechelt have lockers  available, The charge is minimal and U  is ideal for you .fishermen up here for  your vacations. Another way to keep your  calch for future eating enjoyment Js to  > have those salmon smoked, Jf you have  iiDl. your own. smoke house, the old fisherman down at James Warf in. Sechelt does  a bang up job and again tho cost is reasonable, Anyone for smoked salmon?  .KorUphoso���oC���,you.>,whoJv.YC-J)c,CA,Jxi  perlcnclng a bit of trouble keeping your  herring strip or, plug cuts on your hooks  try suiting them down. This will keep  them in good condition for a fair length  of time aw| wake them firm, so they will  stuyp on the' hooks much better, A good  layer of ordinary household salt seems to  work the best.       .  Lost a nice, sized sprihfj a ' while ago  due partly to stupidity and partly to lazy-  ness. While mooching out at Sargents Bay  1 noticed a small knot in my leader. Instead of changing it right away I left it  while I tied another hook-up. Mr. Spring  did not wait and I had him on. Played  him nice and carefully for about ten minutes and just when I figured I had him,  he took one more run and snap, the leader broke right where the knot was. So  fellows and girls, check that leader for.  cuts and knots, especially after hooking  a dog fish.  Speaking of dog-fish, "Fins and Tails"  is looking into the possibility of organizing a dog-fish derby (complete with prizes.  The idea so far is to have a prize for  the largest and the most dog-fish caught.  Keep an eye here for further developments.  Speaking* of derbys; don't forget the  Jdly*'��st derby sponsored by the Gibsons  Rod and Gun Club. Tickets are available  at Earls- in Gibsons.  Have ypu picked up your latest copy  of Western Fish and Game yet? There is  an excellent article on fly fishing by Jack  Grundle and Mike Cramond relates an experience' he had while steelheading on the  Cowichan River. For those not yet familiar with WFG it is a magazine about hunting, fishing and the great outdoors of B.C.

If you  are the lucky one and own this land you  can also Be smart and rush in a surveyor  or-two and cut up a a few acres for yourself which will later sell at idiotic figures  in less than no time. It is a great idea  and if I had this life to live again .t Is one  1 would cotton to at'once.  You cannot be too careful about the  surveyor part because right at this moment half the people in this area don't  know where they live. On one occasion  lately, a retired lady bought a lot in Wes|t  Sechelt and built a house on it. She had  an offer to sell at a good profit and took  it. The new owner demanded a survey  and when he got it he found the property  line ran right through his kitchen. The  lady had to move the house onto the lot  which wiped out a lot of the profit.  Even we don't know exactly where our  north line is, despite three surveys.  Every time the lot next door changes hatids  we lose two. or three feet, according to the  new owner, until right now we are wondering how we have a 36-feet-long house on  a lot not much more than 20 feet wide if  ,we are to accept the other fellow's figures. Frankly we don't. We will not accept anybody's line except one laid down  by a B.C. Registered Land Surveyor and  I'm not too sure about him either.  There is a sticky situation developing  along the waterfront. This top deals with  property lines. It seems a couple bought  a lot and according to_ the measurements  on their agreement the front line was  about six feet on the boulevard. They put  up some posts to mark it and were asked  to' take thcm'ddwn 6h the grounds "that  since the road had been used so many  years without protest from the original  owners it was now public property.  The new. owners challenge this and  rightly so. They bought and paid for a  piece of land,of certain measurement and  they are entitled to it. The bit about public use under present conditions is stupid.  There are people here who can remember  when the waterfront roadway was about 50  feet further out than it is now and what  car is stopped at a barrier and thenv permitted lo proceed which is the ^owneh's  way of letting you know he still owris^lk*  According to all reports it looks ass/if  we are in graye danger of getting a hew  municipal hall.

There are others who say we need a two-storey place  because we will have a magistrate's coprt,  motor vehicle licence office and a lor of  other things. Two-storey places are * no  good; they simply aren't modern. You  either go up to 50 storeys or stay on the  ground. Who wants to stumble up a flight  of stairs to pay a fine or buy a licence?  Not me or anyone else I know. The big  question facing the advocates of the one-  storey place will be, is there enough room?  Is the present lot large enough to accommodate a larger building and provide parking space?  The whole situation is getting out "of  hand right under our noses. The resident-  iafand industrial zones are woefully inadequate for the present rate of expansion'.

As this  local represents the biggest economic  block on .this peninsula and Mcadseirwe^  strive to be a responsible organization^;  it is felt an explanation is due.  Just prior to the internal problems experienced by Local 297, this executive decided to break out of its cacoons and take*  its   rightful  place   in  the- foreground   of  this area's community  activities.

MEMBERS of the Sechelt O.A.P.O. spent  last Thursday touring points of interest in Vancouver. Leaving Sechelt at 7:30  a.m. their first pleasure was to extend  greetings to Mr. Robert Mitchell, who was  celebrating his  81st  birthday.  There was a tour around Stanley Park  with an opportunity to enjoy the view from  Prospect Point. Next stop was the Maritime Museum at Kitsilano Beach to see  the RCMP Patrol schooner St. Roch, which  was the first ship to navigate the Northwest Passage from Vancouver to Halifax.  The St. Roch is now under cover and restoration work will be carried out by the  Natural and Historic Resources Branch  when the water content has been sufficiently reduced. '  The party next toured around the  U.B.C. campus and visited the Nitobe Memorial Gardens. Vancouver International  Airport was the next port of call and during lunch, members were able to watch  a Canadian Pacific plane arriving from  Montreal and disembarking its passengers.  Then followed a visit to Queen Elizabeth  Park, still a delightful spot, although the  flower gardens were not up to their usual standard owing to the strike.  Then came the drive up Burnaby Mountain to Simon Fraser University. The  buildings are impressive and command  magnificient views in every direction. The  descent   to   Hastings   Street   offered   fine  vistas of Vancouver. Crossing second Narrows Bridge, the route followed the Capilano River to the Cleveland Dam which  stores sufficient water to supply 200 million gallons per day to the lower mainland. The driver was again the cheerful  and unfailingly courteous Dick Gray.  - Among other outings which Branch 96  is planning for this summer is a picnic  at Roberts Creek Park,on July 25th, with  bus transportation arranged from Sechelt  and a charter bus trip to the P.N.E. Golden Age Day on August 25th. September  7th, 8th and 9th are the dates arranged  for the Olympic Peninsula trip which has  been replanned to include a visit to Whid-  bey Island. Cost of this trip will be $22  including hotel accommodation at Port  Angeles and Olympia. Members are ask-  . ed to make their reservations to Mrs. A.  M.  Batchelor by August 15th.  At the general meeting of the Sechelt  Branch held on June 20th, it was agreed  to change the meeting date to avoid conflict with the shopping bus day. Starting  July 20th, the regular monthly meeting  will be held the third Wednesday of each  month.  Mr. H. A. Hill and Mr. Roily Reid reported to the meeting on the Annual Convention which they had attended at the  Cambrian Hall on June 15th, 16th and  17th.  Most of the resolutions relating to  president and Mrs. a. Browne, secretary.  Mr. Hill reported that the Senior Citizens' Association was holding its convention at the same time Jand same place  and that there was the utmost co-operation between the two organizations which  are both working for the same cause,  namely the welfaire of =old age pensioners.  No lawsuit contemplated  following PUC decision  MORE   APPLICATIONS  for  water  hookup outside the village boundary of Gibsons  have  been advised they  are to  be  supplied with water by November.  Norm Procknow of the Sunnycrest Motel told The Times, he felt that as council was now aware of its duties in pro-  viding a public utility, he had accomplished his main object in bringing the matter to the Public UtiUtiesC^mmisisibri.  "As far as I am concerned that is the  end of the affair," he said. Asked if he  had intentions of launching a lawsuit as  previously suggested, he said he had decided to let the matter drop rather than  cost the taxpayers more money.  ���by Florence McSavaney  ROBERTS Creek Hospital Auxiliary held  its  annual meeting on  Monday,  June  Cars which make fewer stops can expect greater economy.

There are also to be  some day camps held this summer but  more information will be available in this  regard at a later date.  Children at Roberts Creek School and  the Free School are being presented this  week with B.C. Centennial Medalions,  through the courtesy of the Roberts Creek  Centennial Committee.  Mr. C. Bedford attended a four day  seminar last week in Seattle. This dealt  with Marine life and Mr. Bedford met  many interesting people from all parts of  the United States and some from other  parts of Canada; he also brought back  some interesting additions to his already  extensive collection of shells.

This symptom of lack of elimination of nitrogen from the body is made  manifest by apparent drunkenness and  pain, and if decompression is not followed within a reasonable time, permanent  injury or death ensues.  Much was also explained about the various equipment needed for scuba diving;  the different merits of various m?sks, and  the weakness of snorkel tubes which are  too long. The . toxic gas, carbon dioxide  is heavier than air and it has a tendency  to accumulate in a tube longer than 15  inches. Several areas were discussed for  diving, some of which were; Woods Cove,  Davis Bay, Bear Point and the Buoy at  Soames Poi .it; all of which abound with  natural beauty and prospects of good  spear fishing.   Refreshments were served at 10:00, after which some members volunteered to  make safety flags for the club. Boaters  may take note; when you sec this red,  white and red flag flying from any floating object, it means that divers arc in  the water. Proceed (Seaway of 100 yards)  with extreme caution at greatly reduced  speed, and keep a sharp outlook for air  bubbles and any sign of activity, It is  far better to use reason and care now,  then it Is to have a network of mandatory legislation issued later, which is an  unnecessary expense to the taxpayer, This  applies to all outdoor activities,  The meeting was al great success and  all felt there was a good season for diving ahead ��� so "bottoms up," "Bottom  .
