CONTRACT AWARD  , ..Trustees accepted Mr. Markle Myers  tender for bus transportation of students  froni Halfnioon., Bay to Egmont; water  transportation'In>the Pender Harbour area  will be discontinued. Mr. Myers will purchase three hew. buses which "will cover a  minimum distance of 207 miles per day.  The three year contract commences in September, 1966. '  SCHOOL GROWS  Gibsons Eleihcnta. y Principal, George  Cooper is presently concerned with next  year's student enrolment. If it exceeds 500  pupils the school will be entitled to a supervisory principal -and full time librarian.  Trustees decided to make provision for 16  divisions in the school next, year. to cut  down on the pupil-teacher ration in grade,  1. It is possible that this arrangement  will result in the school having three teachers over entitlement.  Finance Chairman Peggy Volen warned the board that the department of education had cautioned the board to watch  over entitlement when they reviewed this  year's budget figure which provided for  11 teachers over entitlement.  MUSIC FESTIVAL  Music supervisor Mr. Klyne Headley  outlined plans for the May 14th Music Festival. There will be a visiting band from  North Kamloops, Sechelt Residential School  Band and dancers, six choirs and 50-60  instrumentalists from Sechelt School District participating.  The parade commences at 1:00 p.m.  and the festival at 2:30 p.m.  CENTENNIAL TRAVELLERS  Eiphinstone Principal Mr. W. S. Potter  reported   that  four   students   from   grade  In September two students from grade  ten, will spend a one week period attending  school in another part of the province.  ISPtATTWrGHT   Eiphinstone   is   planning   a    "Display  Night" on June 3rd;  this will feature  a  fashion show, displays of Industrial Education and science projects,"commercial and-  art work, etc.  Madeira park  : :Mr. Ken Powers, principal of Madeira  Park Elementary School recommended that-  the board consider doubling the allowance for athletic supplies which is presently 50c for each elementary school pupil. -  In smaller schools this is quite inadequate  and such schools should have a basic budget.  There are 19 potentialapplicants for kindergarten at Madeira Park next year which  would not.be adequate for a full time kin-,,  dergarten teacher. "Mr. Powers reminded  the board that in his area there was a  greater need for kindergarten facilities . as  children did not ifave the opportunity to  associate in sucn a scattered community.  Lions Club plans  treat for Mother  SUNSHINE Coast Lions Club will again  operate the ever popular Mothers' Day  Pancake Breakfast which, as usual, will  be held in the Peninsula Motor Products  Ltd. show rooms.  Peninsula residents travelled from far  afield last year to this event, and as this  year's breakfast is expected to be better  than ever, Lions members extend a cordial invitation to all to bring Mum along  for her Mother's Day treat, Sunday, May  8th, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Sechelt group . .��� . r  Chamber of Commerce  hears court dispute  Happy bachelor  AH!.

Transportation is urgently required for  the visiting West Point Grey teams who  were such wonderful hosts to our players  quite recently. Anyone who can help,  please call Mr. Bill Hartle, 886-2586. The  guests will -need transportation from the  ferry to Sechelt and after the game to R>-  berts Creek Hall where they will be treated to refreshments before returning home.  It is expected that some 40 people will  visit for the games.  Starting at 11:30 a^m. with Div. 6, followed immediately at 12:30 with Div. 4,  the games promise to be exciting as these  will be return matches, the home teams  being the champions last time. A good  turnout will be necessary to out cheer the  visitors and some excellent soccer will be  played.  Auditorium rental cost  Regional district .  Important public meeting  deserves fullest support  WHILE there has been no lack of enthusiasm on the Peninsula, attempts by  various groups to establish essential utilities such as water, garbage disposal and  assistance under the well publicized ARDA  project, haye been given little support  when prescjjtedlip Victoria. ���.��� ,-L- ~~4 ~ ".*. -.  Hope has been extended by Municipal  Affairs- Minister Dan Campbell who has  suggested formation of a regional district  as a means of solving many of the problems. Consequently, a representative of  thc department of municipal affairs, Mr.  C. Woodward, has agreed to attend a public meeting to be held in Legion Hall,  Sechelt, Wednesday, May ll at 8 p.m. in  order to explain' to those interested the  organization of a regional district. ���  This meeting is of the utmost"'importance  to -the   entire   Peninsula   and   could  well result in many long sought advances  It is therefore necessary that as great a  representation as possible turn out.  Previously,; it has been understood a  regional district on the Sunshine Coast  woiild include Powell River and Squamish.  This, pointed out Mr, Campbell, in a recent letter to the  Sunshine  Coast   Rural  Development Group, need not be so. "At  this time, a regional district could be  considered encompassing the Peninsula  only," he said.  A report  on regional  districts  states;  REGULAR   business  of  Sechelt  Chamber  of Commerce was interrupted at the  last meeting while a resident of Roberts  Creek area, who claimed be��� was well  known on the Peninsula, sought support  of the chamber in respect to his complaints that financial hardship was caused  a number of people due to court not being  held on Saturday.  The complainant, W. Cope, said he had  received numerous complaints from people who had had to forfeit wages by having to appear on Friday. "The previous  magistrate held court on Saturday which  appeared quite satisfactory," he said.  Cope made his complaint following a  preamble in which he indicated he had  at one time been a, stipeiidary magistrate  in some remote area.  Accompanying Cope was a representative of Port Mellon union, wbo said tliat  while many millworkers were on shift  work, the majority were off on Saturday,  Friday, therefore, could cause loss of  wages which, in effect, amounted to presentence.  Magistrate Charles Mittlestead again  explained his situation, agreeing with remarks of Cope that he was indeed a public servant but pointed out that his was  Watson, commenting on the recent cutback in government expenditure, said he  could understand the reasons for holding  down inflation in the construction industry. He also stated he thought Premier  W. A. C. Bennett was right in taking similar action. "If I was quoted $200 for a  job worth $100, I, too, would think twice,"  he said.  LATE  FERRY  Further discussion regarding establishment of a regular late ferry between  Horseshoe ;_Bay._ and Langdale, .brought  forth a comment by Cec Lawrence who  warned that although a late service would  be very welcome, such an operation would  prove extremely uneconomical." �� You  could ask for, and possibly get, all these  services and right away up go your taxes.  disappeared in recora lime ana me i    t j i            y       1 "L         J  teenagers   replenished   their   funds UPlielQ DV SCllOOl DOa!fl  which will help toward their entry m *                z  the May Day Parade.

Most of the  animals  are well trained  and are used to traffic, however, sudden  acceleration is apt to un-nerve them and  could cause a serious accident.  First to complain would be this chamber,'.'. It is also pointed out that while horse  he said.  President John Hayes agreed and no  further action was decided upon.

Desnite     * ~���-r~���-  * Ai.wwyTH-WW.V^^*"'*'-"  probably the best arrangement  guardians of local autonomy can hope to  get.  Regional planning, a regional major  road system, regional park facilities, and  joint water and sewer facilities represent  tho calibre of tasks which a regional  board is designed to do. better than individual municipalities.  Provincial concern, ,is in part, to leave  no gaps in the regioti al district pattern  covering the province and to ensure that  each district will have enough population  and assessment to support its board.  Before recommending any regional district, the minister of municipal affairs  should have a study made and publicized  of all thie facts relevant to deciding what  area should be included and what functions assigned to thc regional district.  order to make a living," he said. Despite  this, court is now held twice weekly and  in most cases when circumstances demand, has even been held on Sunday, and  frequently as-many as four times a week.  Further, in the event of Friday being inconvenient, court may be planned for Saturday by arrangement between ItCMP ami  the defendant.  The magistrate also explained that too  many cases on Saturday is not desirable  in that .his' is a" busy day for police, with  weekend traffic.  Both Cope and tho union representative  expressed satisfaction with the arrangements outlined! and a vote of confidence  in the magistrate was expressed by the  chamber.       ... . ,. .    ,  BREAKWATER  Breakwater Committee Chairman Norm  Council holds fast  on building permit  PUBLIC   use   of   school   activity   rooms  aroused considerable discussion at last  week's meeting of school trustees.  Considering a request that the board  waive rental charges on Eiphinstone Auditorium for a recent concert, Chairman Joe  Horvath warned that if this, request was  complied with, it may occasion similar  requests from other organizations. Secretary-Treasurer Peter Wilson ��� reminded the  board that the cost of janitors wages and  supplies resulting from the public use of  these facilities was considerable and.often  was not covered by the rental, particularly  if the event was on a Saturday night when  the janitor"'''''Hvbiadr'*l��-":Kpaid':":'d6uble time  rates working on Sunday.  Mr. Horvath also felt that too liberal  use of the facilities would delay the provision of a more suitable building for such  events.  In some instances the use_of���the.halls  had been abused."Following a Saturday  night dance in Gibsons Elementary School,  janitors' wages amounted to $24.00 and  damage to the floor caused by cigaret  burns,.. $54.00. Trustee Doh Douglas stated  that he understood, the organization which  hired  the, hall was  very .perturbed over  the damage and would make full restitution.

"������ ���""���';'  Trustees decided to uphold rental  rhargps . on , public _.use,<)f~sc-_ooL .fflmna-  siums with extra charges in case of damage: - -  FIRST call for action by council under the  recently revamped building by.-law,  came last week when Gibsons Village Commissioners were asked to grant a building  permit for an extension!to a house at a  cost of $1,000.  ,Clerk Charles Gooding reported that, the  extension was near completion, and had  been built on blocks and posts, which was  contrary to the building by-law.  Commissioner Norm McKay expressed  the view that the builder, D. Caldwell of  Sechelt should haye known better. Comm.  'Jim Drummond agreed adding, "This is a  test of the by-law and wc will have to taket  a firm stand. Concrete foundations are  called, for, and he will have to abide by  it."  Application was therefore turned down  nnd tho owner. Mrs. M. Scott, Informed  that the extension must conform to the  Building by-law.        ,������������*  AIRPORT  Comm. Drummoi)il reported that renov-  atlona' hnve been carried out at the airport. Some GOO' feel"of 'ditching has been  completed, culverts put In, roadways built  up nnd gas pump, are back In operation.  Slushing has also been carried out but mar  kers have yet to be painted.  ;NEW;WELLJ":"':'"''"'  Chairman Wes. Hodgson said results of  the well drilling had proved discouraging  but it was pointed out that it was hoped to  utilize the well as an additional supply. It  will be two weeks, or more, before final  figures,as to flow are ascertained at which  time there will be a full report,'  BUS STOPS  Discussion on tho question of relocating  the Gibsons bus stop revealed tho factap,  earlier statement by commissioners that  a cafe operator did not approve of passengers using his premises as a waiting  "roonV, was incorrect. Coirim. Fladager ad-'  vlse^l that he had been Informed the operators had no objection to this practice,  It was decided to change the stop as  previously planned, to the end of the parking area.  Request that the Sechelt Motor Transport Company consider providing a stop  In Vancouver nearer the main shopping  area, brought a reply explaining location  of such stops was decided by the City of  Vancouver and that the bus company has  no say In such matters.  It was therefore moved the city be contacted and asked to give consideration to  tho proposals. '  P.I/.C.

Arthur Laing, Minister of Northern Affairs  and Natural Resources.  He was told that MP Coast Capilano,  Jack Davies, has made known in Ottawa  his displeasure and has actively sought  means by which the project might go  ahead as planned. Mr. Laing said, in effect, a second look js indeed being taken  and the engineering department has been  askd for a rundown oh cost relating to^la-  bor, machinery arid material. There is  every hope at this time of getting the  breakwater reconsidered ior this year's  budget.  Mr. Davis also expressed confidence  and again emphasized the fact that there  is no question of cancelling out the project. It was. in any case, only a temporary  postponement.

how much autonomy their province should"

ate» approach is that, ot Prattler Lesage
and his Liberals, though moderation is perhaps the last thing Mr. Lesage might be
accused of by many English-speaking
. Canadians.
In calling the election, Lesage said he
wanted a renewed mandate for participation in the federal-provincial tax sharing
negotiations, which will be the most important ^political event of the fall and
winter, ^j.
Quebec's success in these negotiations
will determine, more than any other factor, how much fiscal autonomy the province shall obtain, and therefore how much
political autonomy.
In Other words, what is being negotiated
in theise federal-provincial conferences is
a new kind of Canada, a Canada in which
the provinces and the federal authority
will stand in a different relationship to
each Other, in which the relationships between French and English-speaking elements will be changed.
No election ever produces unequivocal
answers to pressing questions, but they
frequently clarify issues and attitudes. If
the Quebec election does that, it will indeed perform a great service.
Quebec's drive for autonomy and self-
expression has produced many extreme
side effects and much confusion within
the province. No major political party,
not even the governing Liberals, has been
able to give clear expression to its political goals, or to its, concept of Quebec's
place in Confederation.
Even the Separatists, who one might
think would be united in the simple desire to secede from Canada, have split
into rival groups.
Out of the confusion, however, is
emerging some kind of concensus, which is
probably best expressed by the Liberals,
who had a large majority in the last legislature; and seem destined to win another
The approach of Lesage is a pragmatic
one, but it is based on a concern for a
strong Quebec, with a strong Canada
necessarily taking second place in his
scheme of things.
In other words, there is little comfort	
anywhere for those who wistfully  expect
that Quebec might somehow forget its aspirations and settle down to behave like a
good and obedient little province.
That kind of comfort, perhaps fortunately, is not to be.found anywhere in modern
The one common ingredient of all major
parties in the election is a desire for more
sovereignty "for the province.
The Liberals, perhaps purposely, do not
try to express this in concrete terms, but
seek it in concrete action. Lesage contents
himself with promoting "a strong Quebec,
stronger than ever," and has been avoiding
his recent flirtations with ambiguous political concepts such as a "particular status" for (Juebcc.
There are  at least five othep  parties
fighting this election. With the excfeption of
the rather odd Quebec Conservative party,
which purports to represent Englisn-Sifenk-
ing Quebec, they all seek greater autonomy
than thc Liberals do.
Next in importance to thc Liberals is
the National Union Party which hold 28
of  the 95  scats  in tho  last  Legislature.
(The Liberals held 63, there was one independent, and three vacancies on disso-
■ ■   • ■   lution).
'  Changes in tho electoral law have increased the number of scats in the Legislature, and there may be as many as 500
candidates seeking election.   •
Tho National Union, under Daniel Johnson, will have a full slate of candidates.
.      After   flirting   with, separatism,   Johnson
finally   rejected   it   in   favor   of.   '"more
sovereignty" for Quebec, This' appears to
mi'an   a   form   of   associate  state  which
would  be  Independent  in  everything  but
name, and perhaps eventually in that too.
One other party is expected to field n
nearly complete slate, it Is lo Knllicjncnt
National,'n merger of right wing separatists nnd of the provincial wing of the Social Credit Rally.

done. At 32, then a farmer, he retired to
a house and garden in the city.
A few years ago friends persuaded him
not to live alone. He moved to a nursing
home, not because he wanted to, but so
bis friends wouldn't worry. With the move
he lost niuch of the independence he valued so "highly. He also lost some of his individuality, but soon found a way of restoring it. The money he received for his
house be put to work building new lives.
A neighbor had three married daughters, and the daughters had a total of 13
children. Henry bought $400-worth of Canada Savings Bonds for each of these child-

now. There wouldn't be anyone left that

If the death of his friends worries him,
he doesn't seem worried about his own
death. His only wish is that when the time
comes he should go quickly, without suf-

it,*' he . ayg. "i have to go some time."

The printed schedule says that  this layover occurs at Saltery Bay but  well as the Saltery Bay^ndr  This seems necessary, because this  is only one of many complaints against  lack of Powell River-Earl Cove information at Horseshoe Bay. No matter how  many times a mixup occurs, no matter  in practice-the layover is made at that    how'many times complaints are made to  most dismal of all places.on this part of  the coast; Earl Cove. We doubt if there is  a more depressing place, after sundown,  than this bleak terminal point.  Accordingly, northbound travellers  expecting to leave Earl Cove at 8:30 p.m.  find the vessel barred and they must wait  another half-hour. What seems to irk  them is ihat when they enquire at Horseshoe Bay (or of they were going by the  printed schedule) they are told that the  ferry will sail at 8:30 p.m. Thus they are  robbed of extra time which could have  been spent in much more pleasant surroundings than Earl Cove.  If the ferry were to make the extra  layover at Saltery Bay, as scheduled,  travellers would not be thus inconvenienced. Presumably the ferry authority  has good reason for making the layover  at Earl Cove, but if it hasn't, then it  should go back to the printed schedule  times.  Much of  the  ill-feeling  generated  the ferry authority about this lack of  human communication, no matter how  many times the ferry authority politely  replies that it **was unfortunate and will  not occur again" it always does occur  just one more time.  Why not put an end to it with  proper bulletin boards? And see that  some responsible person keeps the information on them up to date?  Changes in schedules are bound to  occur from time to time, due to emergencies, accidents, or any of many valid  reasons. The travelling public accepts  these as part of the game. If they are  given the proper information before they  have committed themselves to the trip,  they won't complain.  It is when uncertainty arises and  the disappointing discovery is made  while en route that their anger begins  to show.  We can't blame them.

In the 40s Boyko was a taxi driver in  Vancouver when a passenger went on  vacation leaving her camera in the cab.  He used it to shoot a traffic accident and  sold the pictures to a local paper for $5.  This sent him into photography and he  wound up at the National F^lm Board in  1951. Boyko's home, when he gets there,-  is in Lorraine, Quebec; he has a wife,  aie daughter, 10. and one son, 3.

Helicopter Canada is the first full-length  moving picture feature to be made entirely from a helicopter-in-flight anywhere in  the worid. It is an exciting coast-to-toast  color sweep of Canada���its geography, its  wildlife, its people and ways of life. It is  being produced by the National Film  Board of Canada for and with the aid of  the Centennial Commission. Peter Jones  is -the producer and George Salverson is  the script writer. The director-cameraman  is Eugene "Jeep" Boyko of National Film  Board staff who had some interesting experiences filming this project across Canada from the.'ope���n door of a helicopter.  Boyko was born in Saskatoon, has been  a. dishwasher, shipyard worker, private  chauffeur in various parts of the country  and he was  a  country-andrwestern singer  Show Mom  Appreciation  {other's Day  Turkey Dinner  Sunday, May 8th  5:00 P.M.

The 'copter, during shooting, was able to get as close to the face  of anything as its blades permitted and  hovered from six to 600 feet.  Boyko spent more than a year on the  filming���a good deal of the time 500 feet up  in the air, crash helmet on head, hanging  out the side of a French-built turbine helicopter (the Aloyette). In one year he shot  96,000 feet of film and travelled from Newfoundland to Victoria. An anti-vibration  mount for the camera was a French-made  unit, first used in the making of the French  films "The Red Balloon" and '"Voyage in  a Balloon." It permits a picture while hovering vibration is eliminated in this clever  device.  In Toronto Boyko hovered a few feet  above Nathan Phillips Square for a dramatic view of the new clam-shell city hall.  He caught the old Fort Henry Guard, at  Kingston, doing its drill.  The helicopter camera shot the convoluted tubing and tpwers of a vast oil refinery  complex at Edmonton, Paddle wheelers,  rising new buildings in western cities, the  lush North Saskatchewan River Valley;  in Montreal the helicopter made forays  around the new skyscrapers; in Saskatchewan it caught a fast-moving freight train  travelling through a prairie town, a truck  leaving a high dust plume behind it, down  a road to a lone elevator standing stark  against the prairie horizon.  In Newfoundland the camera made contact with a lighthouse keeper and a ship's  skipper seeking guidance into the harbor  thus symbolizing the entry to Canada  through her most eastern gateway.  The film's viewers will have the sensation of being virtually on the surface of  the gorge beneath Honeymoon Bridge at  Niagara Falls, and being on a slow trip  straight up the face of bridal veil falls  almost at arms length. They will "ride  the back" of a deer in flight, peek into  the windows of Montreal skyscrapers and  experience the sight. and sound of stenographers at their work and stockbrokers  in action. They will view skiers and mountain climbers, wheat farmers, miners and  prospectors, lumbermen, assembly-line  productions, football clubs, outdoor activities of various ethnic groups and of the  first Canadians���the Indians.

Simon Fraser  WHEN SIMON Fraser led his daring band  down the Fraser to the sea, the sea  came part way up to meet them���and it  was a rousing encounter. They went to  sleep below the high tide mark on a beach  near the river mouth.  "The tide rushed upon their beds and  woke them up," Fraser later wrote. However, this must have been one of the lesser  discomforts of the journey undertaken in  1808. Fraser was 32 then, a partner in  North West Company and in charge of  all operations west of the Rockies. He was  no stranger to the wilderness. Born at  Bennington, New England, he grew up' in  Canada at Cornwall and Montreal and at  age 16 entered the fur trade.  In 1805 he was -sent to the Peace River=  and told to cross the Rockies and estab-  f"lish posts while endeavoring to trace the  Columbia River to its mouth. Carrying  out his orders, he built Fort McLeod.'the  first permanent- settlement west of the  mountains- in what is now B.C. Then came  Fort St. James; FOrt Fraser and Fort  George. But when he set out in 1808 for  the coast, he faced disappointments. First,  his river route was too rugged a passage  to ever be a good trade route���and second, it wasn't the Columbia. He led his  men through rapids, over man-killing portages and between steep banks lined with  hostile  Indians   "where  no  human  being  ���With Your Neighbours  MR. AND MRS.

BRIEF REJECTED [ ','. \~"  Trustee Celia Fisher, requested that  trustees reconsider a previously; tabled-  brief from Gibsons PTA seeking to reduce  the lunch hour to 30 minutes' to allow fextra.  time after school .for\ certain .activities. .  Those concerned state there is^not sufficient time in the lunch hour to "organize  a satisfactory program.  Trustees looked to Superintendent Gpi.  don Johnson for guidance but he stated  that bis views would be expressed later  "in camera". Mrs. Fisher recommended  that the PTA proposal be tried for an experimental period only and then reviewed.  However the Superintendent indicated that  the activities listed in the brief should be  included in the school curriculum and conducted during school hours. Mrs. Fisher  replied that they were but this was an enrichment program which would be^ supervised by volunteers. After school activities  listed include. art, music, choir practice,  science club and games.  Referring to the 60 minute lunch period, Mrs. Fisher said that this had been  reduced in the past in pertain circumstances andthat Langdale -School only Had 50  minutes. Brief was finally rejected by the  majority of school trustees.  NEED A CAR?  NEW or USED  TRY     . .  t  SECHELT, B.C.

All this gobbley-gook is fine stuff for  the political swill barrell but the fact remains;  the breakwater was promised;  it  has not been delivered!. Why?  This column said a long time ago that  the wording of the breaikwater gag before  the last election was political blackmail.  The recent events have proven it to be  true. Wfe can say a lot more with equal  accuracy but boil it down to one sentence.  As long as  a Liberal  government holds  power in Ottawa we will get nothing. Look  over their past record. - There  isn't ope,  I  have  recently  neen  taken  to  task  about my;. renxarks. oh /the village coun- <  cil. I was. strongly reminded that I am not  a resident of Sechelt so therefore have no  right to criticize. I am not a resident of  Ottawa or even Victoria but what goes on  there in both places is of- interest! to me.  1 would respectfully point out that every  dollar that comes my way is spent in Sechelt. Directly or indirectly,  part of the  dollar comes back to Sechelt and is of the  same value as that of any dollar spent by  a resident of the village. This could go on  at some length but let it be enough to say  that a  nod  is  as  good  as  a  wink to a  blind horse. This column never set out to.  hurt anybody  yet  and if poking  a  little  mild fun has caused anybody undue distress Thereby apologize like a gentleman  and ask,  "What's the  matter with your  sense of humor?"  Many years ago by some strange accident I was asked to do a weekly column  on one thing or the other. They must have  been dandies because the office boy  got  bow-legged carrying burning; letters of pro-.  test to the editor. I stood by his desk waiting for my discharge slip but he laughed  loud and long and said, "When people take  time out to write such letters it means  people are reading your stuff. Keep it up."  In any case, there was never a "'time'  ..-in.S6chelt's .history, where.foresight, Was  needed as much as it is. now. Even the  most casual glance will reveal that - tiie  village of Sechelt as such is moving away  from itself and the new unoccupied upper  levels of West Sechelt and Mason Road  area will be a heavily-populated residential section. The signs are there and we  cannot ignore them.  This is the time to really THINK BIG  and mean it. We once thought in terms of  a hundred dollars around here. Then it  came to thousands. Before we got our second breath we were in for a millon dollars give or take a few thousand with our  new hospital. We are already talking of  a new addition to it. Look around you.  Take a drive and keep your eyes open.  New   modern   homes   are   springing   up  everywhere.  Who "is  building,  buying or  paying for them? That is beside the point.  They are there and more are to follow.  Is this any time to be haggling over piffling inconsequential. The business of this  __.municipality_ at _the_ moment is_tto___malL.  to talk about. There is nothing tbait can't  be brought up, discussed and disposed of  in an hour or t\vo of any week. We are on  the edge of big things and we must be  ���*feady-to-take-4he - step-forward or -ba  and shilly, shally.  In discussing this with  a  councillor I  was reminded that a lot of things are possible if money is available. That is true but  * it is in Situations like this that bring out  . the qualities of leadership and imagination  in a man or a council. The amount of  money now  available to Sechelt Council  is so small that it is a wonder that anything  can  be  done.. The  present  village  boundaries  make it impossible to  derive  additional  income  to  help   much.   The .��  are strong opponents to village expansion  in any way and I was one of them. A longj  and careful study proves this to be faulty  thinking and is only for the moment. At  our time of life we are not going to do our-  selvesf either too much good or harm no  matter  what we  think,  but  if  we look  ahead 30 or 40 years we are going to see  .the .value of forethought. The present faci-  '���   lities we are squabbling about today will  have passed on-and something new will'  have taken their place. What is to be done?  We don't know but we do know it will,  be larger and better and we can only anticipate.  Time after time we have discussed  secondary industries here. We have found  no   answer.   Perhaps  there  isn't  one   at  present hut will it he tbe same 25 years  ahead? The areas now logged off and re-  seeded will be producing again and there  will once again be a tremendous amount of  timber available. What will be done with  it? Will it come out of the forest as logs  or chips? We don't know. Nobody does.  The forest industry is moving at such  breathtaking strides that nobody cares to  predict anything.  There is no easy answer to these questions but it is evident to even the most  casual onlooker that big things lie ahead  _alid_now_is_the time to ,plan for them.   At least a dozen modern costly homes  are going up along the highway. Others  are being built further back. How many  more are in the planning stage?  These  -certain-signs-of-progress. The people  ���vJ"  building them will spend a lot of money  supporting them. Let us take a second look  at the future for our children and acU-  now.  This  population  explosion  can't be  so  serious. We still tax bachelors.

AUDITIONING for the four solo parts in  the Spring Music Festival took place*  last Thursday and the three adjudicators  had an extremely difficult task selecting  four from the 12 applicants.  Judging was on a points system with  the performers concealed from the judges,  -i|i|iss Lynne Vernon, Mr, Klyne Headley  and Mr, Ray Holbrook. There were four  categories, piano, vocal, accordion and  band instrument but only performers in  thc first three divisions applied for audition. ;  Chosen' to play on May 14 were "pianists  William Dockar, Heather Hall and \yayno  ���'���Wright, and accordion soloist Teresa Labonte, Judges felt that the young vocalists were not quite advanced enough for  a ,solo performance this year.  This will be the first presentation of a,  music festival on thc Peninsula and with  the continuance of thc music program in  the school district, auditioning next year  should be highly competitive and a great  incentive to young .musicians. ���  ,.,..&,.  h  ��� ;'. -T  ascnarise  o�� ��    \  t$^��!i^��(tteB*y#fciiH��#��p"  ISS&^4*1W ,^^<. p,W^4W4*^����^��J*-'Ws!jiff ('W&S  & a^^atiGiL^  EVory yiw. cars eWo* and Improw, H*�� a foot of life, But ono cor, tho  Ford, linn Improved 00 romntkobly. you .oop hoarlno about It.

Some will say that modern conveniences  are not necessary to a good life. That is  perfectly true, but how many will go without these conveniences once the availability is at hand���very few, if any. In  other words, roads bring progress and a  better and more comfortable way of living. They also bring people, traffic and  additional responsibilities to the communities which they serve.    v  In a territory such as the Sunshine  Coast area, one in which tourism is fast  becoming one of the major factors in supporting our economy, roads are of special  importance. They enable our citizens and '  our visitors to travel from one location to  another and to view ani enjoy the many  points of interest and recreational facilities  which we- have to offer.'This, in turn,  means that more people will be visiting  more communities as time goes by.  All of our visitors cannpts pend all of  their vacation put in small boats, catching  (or attempting to catch) all of our salmon.  Some have other interests. Possibly a  day's trip up the highway,, for Slechelt and  Gibsons area vacationers, might be attractive. Many others,. staying, in the top  portion of the Peninsula, occasionally  journey down, to the larger communities of  Gibsons and Sechelt intent on shopping, or  just for"tHe outing.'Wherever they decide  to go, the demand for service accompanies  them and in this respect our roads have  brought additional responsibility to provide  such "services.  . The, shortage of accommodation during  the vacation season has been apparent for  several years. Far-sighted motel and resort ope?a .pes have increased their facilities and new ventures have been-formed,  but the dbmand for space is constantly  growing. In-addition, the increasing number, of ���tc.ilpr .and cajmpmg__outBts.,._now  seeking suitable "camping space for weekend.- ajad longer periods warrants tbe con-  sti^^nv^ provincial, parksite facilities in  th^^^^fggpgari^ ofthe Peninsula.

Now-a-days there are  fewer trees and bushes handy, much less  vacant property and more houses and  people in our small communities. As the  old saying goes 'there ain't the opportunities'. (In Japan, and the writer can  vouch for this, it was still possible within  the last two years to see well-dressed men  using the side.of the road as a rest room.  Not a comjmon occurrence in this day  and age, but still done, even in urban  areas). Still, we are not in Japan, neither  do we condone such happenings here in  beautiful B.C.  These are but a few of the responsibilities that have been incurred with the  coming of roads and their attendant increase in traffic, particularly in our smaller communities. To solve them will require a little thought and participation by  all concerned.  EGMONT EYEDROPS  Had a nice visit from Alf and Liza  August the other day. Alf's health has not  been too good of late but his cheerful disposition and big grin are as evident as  ever. Over a cup of coffee (Alf abstained)  we reminisced of the days when half the  Sechelt cod boats would be fishing out of  Egmont in the early spring. Andy Johnson,  Clarence Joe and Reg Paul were among  others who helped to make this a boom-  . ing ling cod area in those days. Alf, of  course, was one of the regulars, as was  Mel Gauthier, the latter still fishing here  before going north.    * '..'.'  Evidently the north shore of our community IS the real banana belt of Egmont.  At least according to Hughie Morgan who  is boasting of how much more advanced  his vegetables are, .compared to  any  on  this  side of the inlet.  Hughie  says  that  everything  and  everyone  on  his  side  of  the water is fine.

Yet, very deliberately, a British  bulwark was erected, brick by brick, to ensure British sovereignty north of the 49th  Parallel.  - The first brick was placed in 1849 with  the establishment of the Crown Colony of  Vancouver Island. The Hudson's Bay Company became the sole proprietor of the  island under the stipulation that coliniza-  tion should take place.  The first royal governor, Richard  Blanshard, was independent of the company but he did not long remain in the  colony, for it was obvious that the real  authority lay in the hands of James Douglas, the company's agent. This Scottish  fur trader succeeded to the governorship  and is rightly known as the Father of  British Columbia.-  Reports of gold discoveries on the  Queen Charlotte Islands spread to Oregon  and California where plans were soon  afoot for an advance on the new strike.  James Douglas, now governor, in January  1852 warned the Colonial Office of the prospect of American adventurers occupying  the new gold area.  The Colonial Office issued a commission ��� appointing Douglas "Lieutenant-Governor" of Queen Charlotte Island. The  second brick had been placed in the bulwark.  Little did Dduglas realize the events  ������ on ,the Queen Charlottes were really a  foreshadowing of what was to happen  when news of gold on the Fraser and  Thompson Rivers leaked to California in  the spring of 1858.  This was a major gold discovery and  the ensuing "rush" brought ..thousands..of  gold hungry miners into British'territory.  Once again Douglas found himself in a  quandary. As royal governor, his authority  extended only over Vancouver Island. The  gold fields were on the mainland and although there was no doubt they lay within British territory, no organized ijovern-  ..ment existed thertv,to control the', inrush of .  people.  Yet again Douglas felt British sovcr-  .  cignty was in jeopardy  and warned the *  Imperial   Government,   With   celerity   the  '  British Government responded, By act of  the   Imperial   Parliament   tho   mainland  colony of British Columbia was created.   ���  Thus the third bride ,was added to thc  bulwark and inaugurated with all possible ppm,p on a cold rainy day at  Fort I  ���   Langley on Wfoyembcr 10, 1958. ;;i  Douglas   was  becoming  a  busy   rnati, !  for onco again Uio Crown indicated Its re  llanco on him by appointing him Governor  of British Columbia.  Before long tho restless minors wore,!  ,"' beyond the mountains east of Hope, In tho $  SlmJlkamcen and Okanogan valleys  thoyi,  found gold, Then they were In tho Boundary  country where ' Rock Creek  became  tho   ,��nlro   ()f  activity.   Eventually,   thoy  pushed far into tho Kootenny country and  In the meantime thoy had pushed up *���(  tho'Frn. w nnd by 11.04 wore In the Cariboo  where rich diggings were found on Williams. Creek. ~  All of this was within the confines of  the mainland colony but the excitement  could not be contained and before long  there were, rumors of gold strikes on the  Stating River. Once again Governor Douglas rushed off a warning to the colonial  authorities.  ,,,.^0.nr.,J.^  itine was created and again Douglas found  himself with additional responsibilities!  This new territory, the fourth brick, had  only a short existence as a separate entity.  Its northern boundary was set at the 62nd  Parallel, thus embracing part of what is  now Yukon territory, but its eastern boundary, fixed at the 125th meridian excluded  what is now the Peace River counrty.  Inevitably the gold seekers found their  way to the mighty Peace and to control  this is 1863 the boundaries of British Columbia were extended. The Stikine Territory disappeared, the northern limit was  drawn back to the 60th Parallel but the  eastern boundary was now fixed at the  120th meridian and the Bocky Mountains.  'Thus there''came to be k4 single "Mainland  colony with boundaries identical to those  now existing. Vancouver. Island, retained  .its separate identity,     .  Up to this point the powerful unifying  force had been Douglas. But wearying of  his many responsibilities, Douglas was  about to retire. r  While the decision in 18���>4 to replace  him with separate governors for the island  and the mainland might appear a contradiction of the policy of encouraging amalgamation, such was not the case. It was  just that local pride and rivalry temporal'-  iiiy won the day.  However, the gold boom was beginning  to wane and both colonies found themselves in financial difficulties. The Imperial Government seized the opportunity to  revert to its general policy, and an act  "for tbe Union of the Colony of Vancouver  Island with the, Colony of British Columbia" was rushed through Parliament in  1866.  It was the simultaneous proclamation of  this act at the capitals of Victoria and  New Westminster on November 19, I860,  that brought Into being the new"Colony of  British Columbia.

And, until this happens, Canadians  see Canada- adopt  a statesmanlike- poHey-  for  thc  development of our   greatest  national  resource.  A little perspective will help. Canada  is one of the most fortunate nations on the  face of the earth. We have all sons of  water. Our rivers discharge one and a half  times . as much water as those of the  U.S.A. With one-tenth the population we  therefore have 15 times as much water,  per person, as our friends to the south.  We have lots of water. We arlso have an  immense storage capacity. With thousands  of lakes, hundreds of high mountan valleys  and vast areas of muskeg, nature already  stores about one-quarter of the world's  total supply of fresh water in this country. We can also improve the situation.  By building dams and tunnels we can  bring all this water under control. We can  ���*cut down on our floods and make more  fresh water available in the late summer"  and Winter months.  We have our problems of course. Great  distances have to be overcome. The International Boundary also cuts across many  of our major river basins. Many of our  rivers, in other words, are no inspectors  of man-made boundaries. If we do nothing,  the U.S. will capture these flows. Then our  hands are really tied. We are no longer  free agents. We,can no longer divert water as we please.  In matters of resource development I  am, primarily, a Canadian nationalist. I  put Canada first. I would make sure that  all Canadians, present and future, have  all tiie resources they need. I would also  make sure that they enjoy a price advantage over their neighbors in the United  States. So I believe that! whenever we  enter into water exchange arrangements  with the United States, we must follow  certain principles. Five points at least,  must be observed before we can ever sell  water, in any quantity, to the U.S.A.  ,...v,^_���.^e!^.,a^  T,.nrfW  ,,,,,.,.���-������!��--' our  own  ^  simply for decades, but for  centuries  to  tome;  ��    2.

Green and white streamers decorated  the hall which was divided into gaily decorated booths where games were  played.  Five Kinettes were busy cooking and  serving a hot turkey dinner which was a  great success. Hilarious entertainment was  also provided by- the Kinettes who presented a sideshow featuring a bearded lady,  fat lady, half man, half woman, tattooed  lady and the wild man.
