It* is understood that negotiations have  now been completed between a former  resident and the firm of Jenson and Johnson for a black granito quarry at West  Sechelt. The granite will, apparently, be  used in the,construction of the fountain.  Thc one-time resident, Mrs. J.

The board has  notified Dr., A. R. MacKinnon, dean,  Faculty of Education, SFU, that this district is interested in the program.  Prior to the opening of Simon Fraser  University, Dr. MacKinnon visited Sechelt  School District, outlining the teacher training program to trustees and interested persons.  Student teachers  who have completed  the   Arts   and  Science  requirements   for  .their particular certificates will work in  teams of four under the supervision of an  experienced teacher in the district for the  'first   eight   weeks ' of   their   professional  er R. G. Chamberlin as adult education director for the year 1966-67.  In connection with the adult education .  course, it was also decided that any residents in the school district enrolling in the  Academic Program for university credit  be reimbursed their course fees, if they  successfully pass the department of education examinations.  A kiln for the adult education, ceramics  course will be purchased by the school  board on the rental purchase plan.

Referring to his promise at that time  to disouss, possibilities of a water district  feasibility survey with the water rights  branch, Mr. Richter said he has been  advised that an engineer has been allocated to carry out a "wider reconnaissance" water study in the Langdale-Gib-'  sons area. How broad it will be is not indicated at this time. '  Also discussed at thc June meeting was  thc need for campsites, parks and marina  development. In this respect, the minister  states "my colleague has advised mc that  two pieces of property have been acquired  in the general area and that information  will be available shortly as to the development program contemplated by that de-  partment.''

Regarding this item;  Richter said he has been advised by  the ^department of industrial development,  tradd and commerce,  that such a study  is   presently   underway   on   the  Sunshine  and reports will be received in due  ic.  Regarding a land utee survey, present  program includes the Sunshine Coast and  tt is expected that "in thc course of this  study, useful information will be accumulated. However, it is not possible to determine precisely when the committee in  charge of this survey will be working in  this particular area, but it is hoped it  will not be too long hence.  Expressing regret for being unable to  supply rather more detailed information  on the items in question, the minister said  he expects to have more facts' soon which  he will pass along at that time.  . carried out another good deed last week  with the moving of an 84-year-old pensioner, from a cabin at Davis Bay to another  location at West Sechelt.  Looking quite spry for his'years, Elia's  Andreasen, a native of Norway, has resided in the area for 10 years or so. He  originally came out to the United States  in 1902, came to Canada six years later,  and has lived on the west coast since 1914.  Lions members heard he was' faced  with the expense of moving and quickly  provided trucks and volunteers for a task  quickly accomplished.

During this period the  students teacher may replace a regular  jstaff member of a school who wishes to  undertake one semester of study at the  university. To complete the Professional  Development program, the student teacher  returns to the university for a further  semester of "on campus" study.

Next to Ken's Parking  But it's doubtful if he expected that  a morith after his arrival at Fort Vic.  ttoria he would be sent to Fort Rupert, made  a magistrate and sent into a camp of almost 3,000 Indians to demand the surrender of two murderers.  He failed - in his manhunt when the  chief became stubborn. I'he following year  a warship destroyed one of the Indian villages in the vicinity and the Indians gave  up the bodies of< the wanted men, but by  that time Doctor' Helmcken was back at  Fort' Victoria doing posts surgeon's duties..  He had proven his medical abilities dur*  ing the five-month voyage from England  when smallpox appeared among the 80  passengers. He lost only one man to the  disease although another died of cancer^  The young doctor married a ��� daughter  of the Chief Factor James Douglas, later  Governor, and they had seven children.  Between 1856 and 1871 Dr., Helmcken served continuously in the Vancouver Island  House of Assembly of which he was Speaker, 1856-1866, and then in the Legislative  Council of British Columbia. He opposed  Confederation at first, but in 1870 went to  Ottawa to discuss terms "of" union and "it  was largely through his efforts that construction of a trans-Canada railway became  one of the terms of that agreement.  In 1871 he declined a senate appointment and retired from public life. He diod  in Victoria in 1920 at age 96. His 'fan.e as  Victoria's pioneer doctor was attested to  in the journals of many prominent persons  of that day.  Health Tips  Canadian Medical Assoc.  LIFE EXPECTANCY of the average person is lowered, within certain limits, in  a direct relationship to his or her degree  of overweight, according to the Canadian  Medical Association.  Most information about the hazards of  being overweight comes, from the actuarial figures of life" insurance companies,  which show that overweight people are  poor insurance risks. -  The reason the .lifespan oi these .people  is shortened is" that excess' fat plays a  part in the cause ot diabetes and the so-  called degenerative disorders.

For those  of us who can't afford such a trip next  year we need only choose a travel radius  of one or a few hundred miles, to fit the  pocketbook, and pick an interesting spot  we've- never visited before.  We hfcve no shortage of fascinating  communities, historical- sites and natural  wonders to be seen. I'll wager that many  Nova Scoliaru. and other Maritimers have  not yet visited the old French Fortress of  Louisbourg, now being restored on Cape  Breton Island, whose history on the mere  printed page stirs excitement and wonder.

The Sunshine Coast  Arts Council needs a motto or slogan which  will carry the idea of community betterment inherent in its rather formal statement of purpose in as few words as possible. A short .snappy sub-heading whkh  can be used on letterheads, poster^ notices or announcements.  ffhe aims of the Sunshine Coast; Arts^  Council as set out by toe original steering committee and accepted at the inaug  ural meeting in February of this year are  Lake Erie's north shore, the old German^ as follows^Is To stimulate, co-oidinate and  Canadian settlements in Kitchener area  and studied the Huronia museum on Georgian Bay. If I were an Albertan I would  want to see those Japanese Gardens,  Lcthbridge's own Centennial project, and  perhaps meet some of the enthusiastic  .'..Japanese Canadians who were right behind that community effort.  Lots of people in La Belle Province  have neither yet roamed the narrow  streets of the old town of Quebec nor taken a motor trip through the wild country  around the end of thc Gaspe.

Indian matron explaining the facts of  life to her daughter: "Stork not bring papoose-^ come-by beau and error."  -FEW PEOPLE-today would consider Vic-  ' toria as a way-pain. ��� on -a- journey be- ���  tween San Francisco and Revelstoke or'  Golden.  But in. 1866 jthe' Victoria Chamber of  Commerce, apparently ignoring the existence ' of Georgia Strait, told U.S. gold  miners they just had to visit Victoria on  their way to the Columbia River Big Send  country where the newest gold rush was  located.  "Safest, shortest and .cheapest route to  these extraordinary placer mines is by  way of Victoria, Vancouver Island," read  the newspaper advertisement placed by  the Chamber.  "Passengers going this way don't have  to pass the dangerous Columbia River bar  and the distance is over a third shorter  by way of Victoria than by way of Portland . . .  "The governments of B.C. and V.I. have  subsidized steamers to carry miners from  San Francisco to Victoria and New Westminster direct." These were the Labou-  . chere and the Active. The advertisement  said these ships would connect with "swift  river steamers" carrying passengers to  Yale (the head of navigation on the lower  Fraser).  From Yale to Savana Ferry "a splendid government wagon road and comfortable wayside houses every few miles; over  this road travellers can easily walk, or  they can ride in Barnard's Fast Four  Horse Stages." The chamber made it sound  Mke a picnic and many a miner who had  been over the route must have smiled.  The southern adventurers would be able  to progress from Savana Ferry on the new-  Hudson's Bay Company Ferry "Marten"  to Ogden City on Shuswap Lake and for  the last 34 miles to the upper Columlbia  "there is an excellent government pack  trail."  For miners heading for the "rich mines"  of1 Bridge River or Cariboo the chamber  said-it was-an. easy-walk from Yale, or  they could take.fatft stages. '  ' "Visit the Free Port of Victoria ��� min<_  ers can supply themselves with every ar-;  tide they require', free of duty and 25 io  50-per cent cheaper than they can buy  similar goods in California or Oregon,"  said tjie chamber, perhaps with its tongue  in < cheek.  ' Then it.; gave figures to show that the  distance from Victoria to Big Bend was  473 miles compared with the twisty route  up the Columbia from Astoria, via Portland, which was 752 miles.  The Victoria route could be traversed  in 81 hours of travelling at a cost of .$7^,  first  calss.   Packing  afoot,   the  traveller  would need nine days and $26.50 for ferries, said the advertisement.  The chamber of commerce must have  patted itself on the back for selling itself  in such a fine fashion. But it wasn^t too  smart in choosing the location of newspapers which would do the most. good.    . v  It appeared April 10, 1866 in the Yale  newspaper ��� and if you read it at Yale*  why you were hardly likely to retrace  your steps and go back to Victoria. But  perhaps the chamber of commerce figured  that anyone they missed on the way'up,  -well, they'd get them on the way back.  Just before the company came, "we  used a guest towel. That was the spark  that set off the explosion in the powder  room.  NEED A CAR?  NEW or USED  TRY  Peninsula Motor Prod  SECHELT, B.C.

Gibson, Granthams Landing, became  the bride of Reginald Daniel Thornington,  eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Thornington, also of Granthams Landing. Rev.  R. Barry Jenks officiated at the double-  ring ceremony.  Given in marriage by her father, the  bride wore a, knee-length, white nylon lace  sheath with long sleeves, a small white  hat - and veil completed the ensemble.  White and pink carnations formed the  bride's  bouquet.  Bridal attendants were Carolyn Gibson,  sister of the bride and Mrs. John McKay  of Creston, B.C., cousin of the bride.  Robert Clark was best man, Eddie  Davies and Joey Gibson acting as ushers.  Mr. Wm. Haley of Gibsons was organist  for the ceremony.  Granthams Community Hall was gaily  decorated with summer flowers for the  wedding reception where Mr. George  Reekie proposed the toast to the bride.  Mr, S. Gibson, uncle of the bride was master of ceremonies. Servers were: Blanche  Scorgie, Deana Jessiman, Vicki Johnson  and Belinda Gibb.

Fabulous scenery, excellent fishing,  both in lakes and salt chuck, plus an  unsurpassed climate, provide the vital  ingredients for what could quite feasibly  be the centre of the fabulous tourist industry.  The narrow outlook that tourism  benefits only resort operators is no longer  a reasonable argument. In one way and  another, we all stand to benefit, the more  money coming into the area, the more  stable the economy.  It is fairly obvious/ we are hardly likely  to get any industry in the district, that  is beyond the Port Mellon-Gibsons area.  seeking employment. The population naturally increases, meaning more work  for the building contractor, and so on.  While to some extent, motel apera-  tors from Gibsons to the Pender Harbour area are expanding as the need  arises, very few are actually expanding  with a view to the future. Possibly the  one area which unobtrusively has realized the potential of tourism and prepared,  is that of Davis Bay.  During the past two years or so, the  expansion in that district is probably far  'greater percentage wise than anywhere  on the entire Peninsula. Coincidentally,  its attraction to swimmers and sun bathers has also increased considerably with  which now prpvides; one of the best:  beaches on the entire peninsula.  Within this comparatively small  area, we have excellent motels, camping  and trailer sites. The residential area is  rapidly assuming the appearance of a  high class district, while one long time  resident has sufficient faith ih the area  to construct a large building comprising  stores and suites.  Prosperous communities are built  by enthusiastic and far sighted people  such as this. They are to be complimented for their vision, without it we could  remain static, and unfortunately we sadly  lack those of such calibre.

In his report on the Spencer case, pub-'  lished at the end of July, Mr. Justice  Spence hinted at his own surprise in glimpsing something of the efforts and eaterit of  Soviet intelligence. J  Like  many  Canadians,  the judge had',  perhaps  thought  the  frequent  spy  disclosures in Canada were much ado about nothing..  Now he knows differently.

The requirements of these methods, said  the judge, with the air of a man making  a discovery, are - 'apparently more widespread and urgent than one would normally  at first believe possible.''  Well, we may never learn just what  evidence it was that convinced the judge  of the seriousness of Soviet espionage in  Canada.  We can only conclude that it is there  all the time, working indefatigably, ceaselessly establishing networks of intelligence  covering Canada, the United States as well  as other parts of the world.  If there are Canadians who still disbelieve this, they haven't been paying much  attention.^.Eyer7isince,,fthe.;So_'ivetj.spy ring  was smashed in Ottawa in 1946, tiie Canadian and United States governments have  been intensely aware,of the extent of So-,  viet efforts.  Every few years quasi-diplomats or  agents are expelled from Canada, frequently after .involving.-some Canadians in< their  intelligence operations.  The George Victor Spencer case was  such a case.  Spencer.was a small fish, there is no  doubt about that. A pathetic figure, who  got little financial reward from his efforts  to help the Russian agents. Apparently all  he wanted was a :trip to Russia, and he  hoped he'd get it by keeping on the good  ��ide of the Soviet Embassy in Ottawa.  provides ciVic leaders with a skin of ��� messiah facing a cold ^nd hostile world.    n^^L^L^LTtt 'L.P^l ��Mi  ���toughe��e<l:leath^ Ine^tably^those with ' M'^isis Situation quite common in    ^^^d'Sl^S^SflS  a record or continued lack of endeavor, / communities   large   and. small   and   it    ys VancouvCT! home just a &w days be-  drop by the wayside while those who should not be discarded here  on  the    fore Mr. Justice Wells began his inquiry,  carry out their responsibilities honestly Peninsula.

The visitor to the district usually  stays at a motel and in most cases is  inevitably drawn to the lure of the big  fish. This means a boat, fishing tackle,  gasoline, bait and refreshments. Any  stay involving a stay of at least a few  days invariably means purchase of  souvenirs, clothing, haircuts, and of  course, food, plus numerous sundry  items.  Many of our visitors decide to purchase lots, summer homes and occasionally permanent homes in the area. This in  turn means the merchants, real estate  agents, resort and marina operators, all        have that much more "money to spend,    financial ability, no pastures offer greener  which, in mpst eases, is spent in the dis-    grass.

Jack Davis, M.P. (Maybe. Perhaps)
should see this for oneupmanshlp and how
,to get things done. Here is the start of
our new breakwater. True, it is only a pile
Of concrete blocks and mud, but ,that is
ajl that Ottawa was going to give us, even
before Lester Pearson blew one hundred
and forty million dollars to put in a bridge
and tunnel for the Prince Edward Islanders to got a few spuds to market. How did
this happen, the new breakwater we mean?
It seems the debris is from the foundation of the old municipal hall and Councillor Joe Benner doesn't want to wait a-
round long enough for Uie Commissioner
of Land;*Sea, Air and anything else around
Sechelt gets flrounfl to finding a truck or
a place to dump ,thc stuff so he just de-
cldcs to start tho breakwater on his own.
Well, maybo that's not exactly what ho
thought but the idea. Is thore, instead of
fiddling around with one proposal after tho
other let's concentrate- on cleaning up the
wntorfront and using that, now.

Road under construction ��� Blasting,  please turn off your radio ��� Grader working ��� Men working, proceed with caution  ��� Loose gravel ��� Fresh oil ��� (No. We  never did rate one of Mr. Gaglardi's famous 'Sorry for the inconvenience' displays. I wonder why?).   ,  The aforementioned signs and others of  a like nature can now be removed. The  four mile stretch of connecting roadway  from Egmont to Highway 10* has been  transformed from the single lane wagon  trail of eleven years ago to a modern and  efficient blacktopped access road. We have  arrived. .  The Egmont road, in its infancy, was  really something, as those of us who used  it in those days can well remember. 'S'  turns, 'U' turns, blind corners, winding  steep hills, you name it, our road had it.  One hill with two turns and a 30 per cent  grade and- a couple more that gave a  strange driver the uncomfortable feeling  that he and his car were taking off into  the wild blue yonder, as he reached the  summit with seemingly no more roadway  ahead of him. Then there were the bluffs  overlooking Agamemnon Bay. This portion scared the pants off many of our city  visitors and was the most dangerous part  of the old road. A narrow winding track  with a high rock wall on one side and a  steep, precipitous drop-off on the .other.  In fact, this part is still one to be driven  with care and could well do witii aguard  rail along the outside edge.  Yes. It was quite an experience to  drive over the original right-of-way but  at least it was a connection that gave  us access to the highway. As tiie years  passed, and with minor improvements such  as removing the odd stump, a little rock  work here arid there, gravelling the soft  spots and, above all, the careful and skillful attention of young Dave Pollack and  his grader the old road was gradually  smoothed out and widened into a reasonable fair condition, for a country road,  that is.  ��� The major alteration and reconstruction  of the past "year had been-a' hard' one  for drivers and vehicles using the Egmont  road. It has also been a bit of a trial .to  the highways crew engaged in the work,  the greater, part of which was done by  the local maintenance department under  foreman Dave "Pollack Sr. Theirs has been  a difficult and, on many, occasions, what  must have been a frustrating' experience  ,��� to get on with the job and at the same  time keep tiie traffic moving. This they  did, and did well. (��  What, many people do not realize is  that the,Egmont road'probably handles  more traffic than any other. access road  on the Peninsula .with the possible exception of the road into? Madeira -Park'. Tt  serves, in addition to our > community,  the entire industrial' area of Jervis Inlet  with its many logging operations and their  numerous employees.' In the spring arid  summer months this volume- is- greatly  increased by .the influx of sports] fisher-'  men, campers and sightseers.  These then, are .the- conditions .under  ' which, the road crew has, worked for the  past'year. Some will say that they were  only doing their job and getting i paid for  it. That is true. But the courtesy and  consideration shown by the two Pollacks,  Dave Sr. and young Dave, Bill and Fred  Donley, Dave Stiglitz, Harold Sanford,  Roy Fenn, Stan Brown and in the final  stages by tfrank Campbell and Bob Crichton, to the public went far beyond their  duties. These are the local men employed  on thc road construction. There were others, equally considerate. They all deserve  the utmost commendation.  And so ends the tale of our road and  with it also ends a source of inspiration  and considerable column mileage to thc  Egmont Eye for the past year or so. With  the completion of the Egmont road thc  many readers of this, column (five thai  I know of, all family) will heave a sigh  of relief and say, "Thank God. Now he  will bo forced to lay off the road .tuff."  I have news for them. They are dead  wrong.  Mr, Gaglardi, Mr. Underwood and thc  highways department crow still have plenty of opportunity to demonstrate their  abilities in tills area.

Locally^' 'there is the question of renovating arid finishing the present school road whi&^serves the 'population and business establishments of West  Egrnont. Who said thatJ our road work  was finished?  AU RE VOIR: Coinciding with the completion of the Egmont road it is learned  that Mr. Reg McMillan, popular resident  engineer for the Peninsula area, has been  promoted by the department of highways  to the post of district engineer, Grand  Forks Electoral District. Best of luck in  your new position, Reg; our loss is Grand  Forks' gain.  EGMONT   EYEDROPS  Getting a suntan at their north shore  hacienda are Betty and Harold Dodman  of Burnaby, accompanied by daughters,  Cindy and Susan. Summertime residents  for the past 9 years, the -Dodman. ^are  spending this season ia just' plain loafing.  House building is out for this time according to Harold. ^Be^ty^^  before the summer ends.'."*.',"'  Betty and Steve Harrison are other  Vancouverites Who; with their family, take  'every available opportunity to occupy their  summer home, also on Egmont's north  shoire banana belt. Haven't yet found out  if fishing or just working around the place  is the attraction, but either is. preferable  to the big city in hot summer weather.  One, daughter and her famliy depart  for Vancouver arid home and another arrives. This is regular procedure in the  Berntzen home and Gene and Vi enjoy  every minute of it. This week it is their  eldest daughter Sylvia (Mrs. Herb Hansen) with her two children, Anne and  Nancy, wha are visiting for a few days.  Percy and Juanita Mitchell, old friends  and former Vancouver neighbors, are also  guests of the Berntzens.  Guests at the home of Mary West are  Mary's sister, Nell Seaton and her husband  Ernie. Residents of Victoria for many  years the Seatons will still enjoy returning for periodic visits to Egmont as they  lived here some 28 years ago.  Young Rennie Cook, son of Kay and  Bud Cook, is keeping himself occupied  during the summer school vacation. Filling in for his dad on. a local logging camp  tender, Rennie is enjoying his work and  appears to. be .doing a real good job.  Rear windows of automobiles serve a  twofold purpose. Through .them you can  peer into the car ahead, if you are the  nosey type, or you can use them for observation purposes when you are going  astern. A certain young fellow in these  'ere parts, usually a careful driver, discovered the latter purpose a little too late  when backing, into; his. boss's driveway.  The,owher's car was already occupying  the space pur hero was backing into. 'Sorry about that, chief was the young man's  comment when reporting the rear-end collision rto, lus .employer. Our D.A. (not Dis- .  trict Attorney) is* still employed.  ' TMetta and Norman Edwardson became  the proud parents of; a baby son with the  arrival .of 6- lb. 13- oz.

A- pat on the back tci the crew of tho  black, clinker-built Grenfcll cruiser RIOT  IV, coming in to, the Egmont floats on  the evening of July 25)th, they found a huge,  multi-branched evergreen tree-top floating  within thc mooring area. With plenty of  Space available they could have tied up  and ignored, the whole thing, as quite a  number of boats had already done. Nevertheless they took time to tic onto the  snag and tow It well out into thc Inlet and  away from thc floats, Then they came in  to moor for thc night. A courteous and  thoughtful gesture Indeed.
