Aah1/I      kn  survey carried out-by his company.  The consultant" made^ a number*' of  recommendations based on the initial  survey, foremost of which was rezoning'  along the waterfront and, village' centre.  This should include zoning of larger sites  ,for commercial use in order to strengthen  the village centre as a means of attracting outside investments.  ^Another problem facing the village is ,,..,._.  th<j number of old .ugly buildings which it PENDER Harbour Auxiliary to Si' Mary's  was suggested, council acquire, pull down 'Hospital held the first meeting of the  aaaiutiljze cleared areas for parking. fall.Hseason on .September 14;  attendance  consultant said' his findings -should be  . cotnpleted' within* a month at which ���> time  he would report back to council.    "  . u 4 I "t i ���> V  _���!������< *  Hospital Auxiliary  hol^s first meeting  tj^Mt.- Williams said he saw nothing wrong  with duple* buildings within the village  ^ritb perhaps the possible exception of the  Bluflis. This* area, he felt, should be restricted. Commissioner Sam Fladager  pointed out' that the .area is already restricted.  Asking whether any consideration has  been* given, to re-routing the Sunshine  Coast Highway, Williams was told surveys  have been carried out by the highways department with this,in mind however, "we  have no voice," he said.  Comm, Jim Drummond expressed the  view that the village lost its voice when it  lost the ferry system. -���_  On the question of mobile homes, the  chairman explained the village fortunately  has a bylaw keeping them out of the village. Comm. Drummond commented mat  was small, several members..being,on vacation and others still having visitors.  ���' It-was reported that the surgical ma  chine which' the group- arranged to pur  chase for St. Mary's Hospital will not be  available for several months.  Revision of the constitution was reported to be underway and will be ready  for discussion at" the October meeting.  Mrs. Sloan, sewing convener, asked for  ideas for novelties for sale at the bazaar  which is to be held on December 3.  President Mrs. J. Love announced she  will be leaving this area on September  30; this was heard with deep regret from  all members of the auxiliary.  Next meeting will be held on October  19 at 2 p.m. in the Madeira Park Medical  Clinic.  Fourteen days,; jailv  for impaired driver  Coast Capilano M.P.  sees-breakwater: hope-  JACK Davis, MP, Coast-Capilano spent a  day on the Peninsula .last Wednesday  during which he'addressed a group of students at Eiphinstone High School and met  with a number of local residents with whom  he discussed a variety of problems.  Foremost questions on most minds in  the Sechelt area was what about our  breakwater? The Times t, was no exception  and Mr. Davis stated that as far as he was  aware construction should - start ; about  March as promised when tight money policies and budget cut-backs suspended* the  project last year. '   <   "  "     *  "'  Mr. Davis saidi he will continue to press  for the harbour pf refuge which is, at this  time, already in the preliminary budget.  He expressed great regret at"the delay"but  said he feels reasonably confident plans  will go ahead this time. ' ������  A note of interest is that an extremely  comprehensive marine surveys carried out  at considerable expense by Norman D. Lea  Associates >at the request of the ^government, has placed the Sechelt Breakwater  as No. 1 on the list of priority recommendation on the Pacific coast. ^  Retrograde step  lei  .eutiiii  seMom proves  PROMOTION, primarily in the elementary  school, was the topic of discussion at  . the first education meeting held by Sechelt  School Trustees.  Superintendent Gordon Johnson stated  that research had proved that forcing a  student to repeat a grade is rarely beneficial and besides costing taxpayers money,  grade repetition could damage a child's  * personality,, A recently conducted survey,  <m ra group of'students repeating grades  '' showed that 20 per cent benefitted a little  but the other 80 per cent either did not improve or actually regressed.  Elementary Supervisor Mrs. Grace  Wiren, made the same observation stating  that only a student who had missed part  of a ��� year for some reason, benefitted  from repeating a grade.  Ungraded schools, where students* can  progress at their own pace, seemed to bo  thc only solution and we arc slowly moving toward this goal, said Mr. Johnson.  NOT HAPHAZARD |  Under the present system, promotion or  retention of a student is not the decision  of one person but is based on a number  of factors and a consensus of opinion  formed by the teacher, principal, supervisor and superintendent.  Mrs. Wiren outlined to trustees tho  variety of tests given to children In elementary school. Quite often these tests  are conducted, not to assess the child but  to point out any weakness in thc actual  teaching. Group tests arc not always reliable, said Mrs.,,,. Wiren and youngsters  with problems arc tested individually.  PERCEPTIVE TEACHERS  Following Mrs, Wircn's report, trustee  Cella Fisher observed that it scorned that  the most experienced and perceptive  teachers are nccdfcd in the primary  grades, for it is at this time that many  problems arise which could be corrected.  Mr. Gordon Johnson replied that the  movement now Is toward nursery schools,  to discover problems at ah early ago,  School Trustee Chairman Joe Horvath  deplored the one room,, one' teacher Idea  school grides  onefickl  and trustee Leo Johnson wondered if ungraded schools would mean more teachers.  Under the present system the solution is  to make provision for small group instruction in elementary schools; Powell River  district' is requesting small" rooms for  remedial type instruction, stated the super-  itendent,  COMPETITIVE CHILDREN  I During - his discussion, Superintendent  Johnson queried the Observation that children are competitive and is "this what we  actually want He personally would liko to  abolish report cards and the words pass  and fail. One parent observed that his preschool children are already competitive indicating that this is natural.  EMOTIONAL  PROBLEMS  Children with emotional problems in  this district are suffering, said Mrs.  Wiren; tbe travelling clinic visits just  twice a year and even then only a limited  number can be examined. These children  are quite often bright but professional  people are required to help them.  CRITICISM WELCOMED  Mr. Horvath expressed the hope that  educational meetings between teachers and  trustees would help the board and teaching  staff to do a better job; there is room for  criticism. Replying to the superintendent's  comment that ho expected more criticism,  Trustee Leo Johnson observed that trustees did hot know enough about what goes  on in schools, to bo critical,  Mr. W. S. Potter felt that the use of  teachers* aides would help solve the problem of teacher shortage for extra tuition  by releasing qualified teachers from mundane tasks to concentrate on teaching.  Superintendent Johnson terminated the  discussion with the remark that continued  study, rescarch.and a lot of daring aro  needed to make the necessary changes.  Guest speaker at the next meeting "on  education will bo Miss Mary Craig, special counsellor In Vancouver School District, ' .<  '���'  Mittelsteadt last Friday,- John Pennier  of Roberts"Creek entered a plea of-not  guilty to'a charge of,~ impaired .driving.

Result of this being that a group had  successfully encouraged sufficient numbers of West Sechelt residents to protest  the proposed expansion by acclamation  now necessitating a plebiscite.  Chamber President John Hayes ^explained that a number of residents in the  area had been given a biased viewpoint  by thoso opposed and he felt villago commission had failed to present tho other  side of the story.  It was generally conceded that expansion would bo beneficial from the point  of view of thoso Interested to thc progress of tho district, and while thc chamber could not actively promote the actual  expansion, it was agreed to form a fact  finding committee which will acquaint the  public with facts and * figures,  President John Hayes remarked on tho  Increase in. tourism during the past season,Ho . said he understood most of tho  resort operators experienced a successful  season but as extra ferries,are out of the  , question for the short season, it is hardly,  likely we will see any,,added increase in  tourism next;year. .    '".",-      *'  -  He expressed the opinion that'with pre-l  sent ferry facilities the saturation point has  been reached,  the only answer  being a  road through to Squamish. He said letters  have already been sent to the minister of  highways   seeking  improvements  to  side  roads, on a priority basis, however, another letter will be drafted shortly emphasizing the need for a road to Squamish.  Reporting on hospital affair^ Mr.  Ernie Booth said a brief has been submitted to Victoria indicating need of an  extended cares wing. As a result, a rc-  "i presentatiyo of the department of/health  is In the district carrying out a survey in  order to ascertain number of beds required in relation to tho. area.  He said the hospital is already running  at over * 80 per cent capacity which is  higher than recommended. "Facilities are  being pressed to thc limit now so ono  might well visualize the situation, in two  years," ho said.  . Findings, and recommendation, of���tho  survey will, be made In about six weeks,  Mr. Booth added,  Reporting on the proposed formation  of a regional district, Norm Watson stated  a few details havo yet to bo ironed out t,ni  tofficHal announcement of tho formial^oh  should be annbunccd shortly.  tbe federation  full^ime, staff-of 55.  * School districts in the province vary  in size from the Portage Mountain group  which has 16 teacher^ to 1,700 in "the Vancouver School District.

Without an adequate return on tiie money  invested in it a private enterprise is sopn  in difficulties and will eventually cease,to  exist."Too many of us, in our concern.for  higher remuneration, seem to overlook this  basic fact. --    ���           .._.,_*._.  Profits are looked upon in different  ways���dependmg-upon -which-side~of "ther  fence you happen to be on. To the average  working man they are stupendous sums of .  money made ,by the company, or employer, and distributed to shareholders who are  imaginately pictured as bloated, filthy-  rich ogres just stomping the' poor wage  earner into the ground. To management,  and unfortunately so in too many instances,  profits are the supreme God and the only  reason for existence, and are pursued with  little or no thought as to how they are acquired. I know���over the years I have  been on both sides of the fence.  Profit is the surplus earnings remaining in a business after ALL expenses have  been accounted for and, according to the  most recent surveys of Canadian business,  the average profit for Canadian companies is less than 3 cents on the sales dollar  after taxes have been paid.  It is a well known fact that many small  businesmen are today earning less annual  .take-home. pay than .their employees, Increasing bankruptcy ahd closing down of  small businesses is the result; either that,  or another increase in prices and another  curve on the spiral of inflation that is now  being drastically felt by a large number of  our population���there are many who are  not in the 3 to 5 dollar an hour wage bracket now being demanded, and received,  by powerful union groups. The small wage  earners, widows and pensioners of all  classes, and many on small fixed incomes  ���these are the unfortunates who are  caught in the bight caused by increasing  prices on one hand and increasing wage  demands on the other. And nobody, except  those feeling the pinch, gives a damn.  What is required today is that a little  more thought be given to the other fellow's  position, and how our demands will affect  our own and the overall economy of our  country, be we representative of labor or  of management.   For too  many  years  in  earlier days, when management was  all-,  powerful* and   unopposed,  the  lot  of   the  working   man   was   indeed   pitiful.   Long  hours and heavy labor with remuneration  that was little more than a hand-out and  [ little,   if  any,   sympathetic   understanding  '  from  the employer. That  was  yesterday,  and  the working  class has not forgotten.  Unions and collective bargaining have gradually   eliminated   the   former   injustices,  and   by  so doing have  proved  that they  have a rightful place in our economy. Today the shoe is on the other foot. Labor,  with its powerful unions, is now the dictator  and   the  pendulum   has  made  a   full  swing. Unfortunately, it has not returned to .  a  central  position,  and  this is where,  in  this column's opinion, our present danger  lies.  This writer is not anti-union, neither  doe. he make any pretence of being a student of our national economy, but it is evident that increasing wages and other  costs, and that also includes the producer's profit, will eventually result in prices  detrimental to our export trade, and Canada, being an exporting nation, will be in  for an exceeding bad time.  British Columbia, for all its so-called  dynamic society, would be particularly  , hard hit if exports were reduced as our  entire economy, is built on the sale of our  raw material and primary products. A  cut-back on Ih*- sales of our forest products, our ores land our fishery production,  and where would we be? Up the proverbial creek without a paddle���that's where.  Already .the tight money ''''policy'.; so It is  \ claimed, has adversely affected our logging industry, particularly the small operator, several of whom' have had to close  down.  Call it what you will, Tho fact remains  that, for some reason or other, the, ultimate .consumer of lumber products Is not  buying. T|\l. results in a backing-up all  the way down tho line until it hits Uio producer, the man who puts the logs In the  water. That's u.s, brother, nt least a goodly portion of our coastal and Peninsula  working population, It will ultimately affect many more, unless Immediate correc.  ting measures arc taken,  It Is our opinion that management, labor and government aro all at fault.

"An outstanding selection of programs  and projects is being offered every Canadian in Centenmal Year 1967 and the function of this elaborate public relations program will be to make sure aE Canadians  are fully aware of the significance of this  event?" he said.  Among the programs developed by the  centennial commission with the co-operation of committees at the provincial and  municipal levels are:  ���Confederation trains and caravans  which will bring a mobile display telling  Canada'i' story from the Ice Age to the  Space Age to every community in Canada.  ���A multi-million-dollar program in the  performing arts to bring the best in professional, amateur and ethnic talent to all  Canadians,  ���A 4,000rmile canoe race from Rocky  Mountain House, Alberta, to Montreal to  honor this chapter in Canada's history and  In addition to the program within Canada, the Canadian Government Travel  Bureau, Expo '67 and the centennial commission are co-operating in a program of  advertising and ��� promotion abroad which  is designed to make 1967 the outstanding  year for, Canada's tourist industry.

EGMONT  EYEDROPS  Friends and relatives in Egmont join  with those of Saltery Bay and Surrey in  mourning  the   death  of   Mrs.   Claire-Ann  Harrop, the victim of a fatal automobile  accident on  Powell River's  Highway  101  on the night of September 24th. Mrs. Har-  rop's husband Hugh, who, with her 16 year  old brother Larry Morris, was injured in  the same mishap, is a nephew of Mrs, Irene Griffith of tins community and is also  related, on his mother's side, to Egmont's  pioneer Vaughan family.  ^ Mr.: and   Mrs.   R...JL.- (Bob)^,Griffith,  have recently returned from an 11-day trip  which took  them  to  Vancouver,  then on  to Prince George. Seems that son Danny  was driving up to the northern metropolis  where he will attend a government sponsored  pre-apprenticeship course in heavy-  duty   mechanics  and offered  to  take  his  parents along for the ride. I said 'for the  ride", and it was smart thinking on Danny's part, as the only honorable thing for  Bob and Eileen to do, once they were underway, was to foot the bill for meals and  fuel���there are no flies on today's younger  generation.   A  side  trip  to  the Noranda  Mines township outside of Wells Gray Park  and the return to Vancouver by bus completed an enjoyable vacation and  an unexpected look-see at the Interior for Bob  and Eileen.  Jack Howitt, with hi_�� Garry Point V,  will take over the school run, in and out  of Egmont, on Monday, October 3rd, This  will solve the problem that has been both-  ring our across-the-watcr parents since the  loss of the previous school water-taxi just  prior tp the summer recess. Harry Trotter's L.M.&N. camp tender has been doing thc necessary since thc commencement of the present term. Steamboat inspection, installation of fixtures and the  unravelling of some red tape was necessary before Jack's boat, a well-found west  coast troller, was pronounced fit. It's a  wonder that four gold bands on his sleeve  and 'scrambled eggs' on his cap was not  also a requirement. '  And speaking of school, I like this one.  Late for school, the kid gave his teacher this excuse: \  "I had to make my own breakfast this  morning."  "I don't believe you, but I'll takb the  matter up later. Right now," for our gcog-  raphy lesson . . , where's the Mexican  Border?"  "He ran away with my mother . . ,  (hat's why I had to make my own breakfast,"  have her granddaughter, Mrs. D. Burnett, of Quadra Island, come to spend the  day.  .  A dainty tea was served by Mrs. Burnett, assisted by Mrs. R. Bernard; special  feature   was   a   decorated birthday   cake  vwith   the  inscription   'Congratulations   on  Your 90th Birthday'.  Mrs. Davey is a long time resident of  Roberts Creek; having first arrived here  in 1931. She was born in Ontario, as were  her parents, and spent some years on the  prairies before coming to British Columbia. She has always taken an active interest in the community, until of late years  being handicapped with severe arthritis.  However, she still maintains an interest  in what is going on by reading, does her  own housework and also tries to keep up  her garden, which is always full of flowers in the summertime. Her many friends  wish her continued happines in the years  to come.

It was quite pleasing to hear that the boys who depend on  The sea^for their bread and butter did xjfuite  well and for most it was a successful year.  ~7Fls northe~fuirtime fisherman I wislirto~  discus, however, it is the part-time' commercial (sport) fisherman I would like to  devote the column to this week.  These moonlighters, or gold dust boys  as they have been calld, are a disgrace .  both to the commercial fishing industry  and the sportsman who fishes for pure  sport and enjoyment. For a small fee  anyone who wishes may purchase a commercial licence and with it he or she can  ignore limits set by the Federal Department for salmon sport fishing.  On far too many occasions, both here  on the Peninsula and over on Vancouver  Island I have seen people fishing under  the protection of a commercial licence  who obviously are not doing it for their  livelihood. No one can tell me that a man  alone in a eight foot pram will catch en-  otigh salmon mooching to pay the rent let  alone the food bill, clothing, heating, etc.  The only reason a person using sport tackle holds a commercial licence that I can  see is greed.  An example of this human greed was  exhibited to me personally this year. I  was mooching up in Lee's Bay and as  fishermen often do, I asked a chap in  a nearby boat how.he was doing. The reply  I got nearly swamped me. Without is much  as a bat of an eyelid he answered, "Not  too good, got nine so far." I guess he saw  the shocked expression all oVei1 my face  because he went on the explain that since  he got himself a commercial licence he  doesn't give "two hodts" abbiit .-limits ^and  "junk like that".  This is not an isolated case, it is happening all.over this coast. Waitresses and  bartenders alike over im Campbell River  hold commercial licences so that when the  fish are in they can fill the fridge and satisfy their greed. After they have taken  the limit for sportsmen, out comes a hunk  of tin which gives them the right to continue plucking the fish from the sea. These  '^people' can give"you hundreds of reasons ��  why there is nothing wrong with fishing  the way they do. "The fish are there for  the taking���Limits ;. are stupid���If the fish  boats can do it so can I���Who owns the  sea anyways���Why not make a couple of  extea bucks���Who does; it ^hy^^,jstsd^^  on. '  It does not take more thai, half a brain  to see that if everyone who wets a line  has a commercial licence or if there are  do limits or restrictions on the taking of  salmon, within a couple of years-thesStrait  of Georgia .could become a dead sea. Tiie  ,reason> there are lipiits and 'restrictions is  for the conservation of our salmon. To the  majority of sportsmen conservation is a  key word but to "get all you can while the  ��� getting; is good'' types, itr doesn't even "ex-  ���.���"^V��.^&^.V:^.wi:v..rf.^^    I think that the only way the "gold dust  boys" could be made to curb what I believe js an unnecessary and damaging  practice, is hit them in the only place it  would hurt, in the pocket-book,  If the Federal Department of Fisheries  would, say,, "All right chaps, from now on  the cost Of a commerical fishing licence  is $500; If iafter the season is, over you  have pro veil thatyouir livelihood is derived ���  from the sea ,$475 will be returned to, you,  but buddy, if the only"reason ypu got tjiat  licence was for greed then thank you for  your contribution towards the ^conservation,  of the salmon." ''.'", "  I fully realize that, the above; is not a  complete solution to the problem because '  somo of the' more greedy weekend- fishermen would either forfeit the, $500 or, find  some loophole in legislation to continue  their unsportsmanlike conduct. But I think  it would be a step in the (right direction  because right now these nioonlighters are  doing.neither the commercial.man nor the  sportsman any good at all.

Popular comedy learn  for Sechelt Theatre  THIS. week  at your Sechelt Theatre  another great comedy starring the ever-  popular Jerry Lewis  and Tony Curtis.  It is based on an episode in the life of  a Paris-based newsman, who maintains  anapartment with three lovely airline hostesses, each one thinking she is his fiancee  and unaware of the other two. Jerry Lewis, the uninvited friend who moves in,: is  superb, as is Thelma Ritter, playing the  housekeeper in her delightfully dry manner. Christiane Schmidtmer, after whom  her German compatriots have the topless  bathing suit, the Schmidtmer, has a talent  for comedy in her own heroic proportions.  Dialogue is fast and funny,. good enough to have deserved better story line.  Tony Curtis plays a promiscuous young  man about Paris with conviction, while  Dany Saval, star of "Tales of Paris'', and  Suzanna Leigh, 20-year-old from England,  are eye-filling additions as the other two  "fiancees".  !<r, ;�����>,. r "���< *,,. \r, ��    ���  J", V.    ����i-%  . . . by Noncy Gaylord  THE CRAFTANS are coming���Thigh high  to floor, brushing, these wonderful and  comfortable loungers originated on the  deserts ol Morocco.

I could see that he was not of a mind  to dally with this overmuch, so I hove,to  rather than lather him up. He was leaving a free cake at every mailbox, as part  of a day's junk mail and as part of a big  popular introduction for a new achievement in saponification. I carried my free  cake into the house and he drove off down  the road exuding loveliness in all directions and proving that rain, hall, and high  commotion are not the only things fought  to a faretheewell by the postal service.  That evening I tried the soap out in  the shower after I came in from dusting  cucumbers, and I thought it worked all  right. It was a good deal on the high side  in respect to aroma, and several times  during the evening I would catch an unguarded whiff of myself and rouse up  from my book wondering what was so  lovely. The dog would sit and look at me  with his head cocked sidewise.  But the next morning I put that cake  of soap to a real test, and it was found  wanting. All the virtues pointed out by  the proud manufacturer on the little wrapper, clearly proclaiming this the finest  soap ever offered to a waiting public,  meant nothing as I tried to lubricate a  screw with it. They may be on the way  to having millions sweet and clean, but  they haven't helped a bit in the workshop.  I assume most people know about soaping a nail or a screw. It not only eases the  fastener into the wood, but it will help  prevent splitting if you're working in a  ticklish spot. And a little soap on a screw  is most important if you are using reclaimed hardware, as one usually does  around the farm. I have a glass bottle  that I throw old screws in, and over the  years its contents rise and fall with my  purposes. If I can't find what I want in  the bottle I have to go buy it, and I seldom go. I make out. Used screws have  4heir slots banged up and wear some rust,  and a bit of soap on the threads is a great  help.  The long strides  of the  soap industry  have naturally neglected this use.' None of  the new models, at least as far <as I havo  tried one, has a decent screw-soaping con-  >  sistency,' and most of them are no good*  at, all. As a nation we have ameliorated -  our ablutions at the expense of shopwork.  When I was a boy and first learned this -  trick from my elders, you could soap a  screw on any make of soap and get excellent results.  3urnow~we���have a soap^ndustry-thatr  believes  soap  is  just  for   washing,   and  that all mankind is concerned only with  fighting off a fetid condition that makes  him 'obnoxious to his closer friends. Nobody is supposed, any more, to be looking  ior something he can rub on a  wooden  pulley in the barn and make it sound less  like a flock of grackles.. Soap is  a fine  answer to the coefficient of friction, but  the soap companies no longer know this.  When you are rubbing a pulley it is not  necessary to have the  sweet essence of  heliotrope,  honeysuckle,   and   sandalwood.  Jasmine   and  dainty   tinct  mean  nothing  amongst sawdust, shellac, fish glue, and  a hot pulley on a bandsaw. It is even! so.  To   the   philosophic   mind   this   might  make a theme for a jeremiad on progress  in general, for most things seem to run  about like this these days. But to somebody trying to put the leg back on a maple  table,  using a  rusty   screw  and  forcing  against  the   aged   reluctance   of  antique  lumber, philosophy stands aloof. What?you  need is a good soap that will rub off on  the screw, and you don't want one that's  loudly guaranteed to be umpty per cent  cold  cream,  either.   The  cold  cream in  soap, if you  want  an  experienced judgment,  makes  your  carpenter  work fragrant, but the screw whines and sings as  you turn it down. The great John Public  bathes   conscientiously,   but  never  fits   a  hinge.  The way I look at it, the only thing  that will make me forgiving is to have.the  mailman come some day and hand me a  free cake of soap that is made on purpose  for screws..i I don't mu^h care what it  smells like, and if it lathers hard in the  tub I will make no public complaints. It  ought to be sort of soft, so it rubs off on  the threads and stays there until I can  get it in the wood. If it makes my cheeks  attractive to the ladies.or keeps me from  drying up in the wind this is all to the  good���but if it soaps a screw well I shall  be joyful. I would like to see .something  on the label about cabinet work. too. I  guess the trouble with me is that I don't  spend all my time bathing.

Gibsons Squarenaders got  under way ate their home hall' at Hopkins  Landing oh Sept. 24, 1966 with three sets  for havine carried out constructional pro  iects -which have not gone to terider and,  in fact, have been awarded to outside  contractors.  Such criticisms are certainly well  founded, for a number of contracts carried out by Vancouver contractors could  quite easily have been executed by local  builders.  In most cases there has been justification for decisions by'the councils, but,  they have erred badly by not advertising  thc jobs and seeking bids. This at least  would have given local men the opportunity to bid.  This does not necessarily mean the  lowest bid has to be accepted. At the  same time, a good reason as to why not  would be expected.  The main point is that by not seeking  bids, council puts itself in a spot. If not  advertised, the localman has a chance  and any suggestion of skullduggery is  eliminated.  We have stated before that far too  much taxpayer's money goes off the  Peninsula, particularly in building contracts such as schools, municipal work  etc. In some cases it is unavoidable due  to the fact local builders lack both men  alone Would Create employment for a  jeirge nurtiber of, local men who at present  have to leave' the area in order to find  Work. It is too bad our tax money has to  go to provide employment for outsiders  when it doulchdo stf much locally.      i  One aspect of this situation Which  could well have some bearing on certain  reluctance to seek local tenders by public'  institutions is the large variation in teh*  ders. The school board, for instance, has  on a number of occasions put a job out  for tender, only, to receive bids which  have varied to fantastic degree.  Only recently a Gibsons businessman  has had structural alterations to his  premises. He sought bids locally and received a number although in a few cases  builders approached said they were not  even interested.  This particular contract was given to  a local man well known for his ability  and insistence upon first rate work only.  His bid was tho lowest and was from  $3,000 to $4,000 below his competitors.  With a difference such as this on a  comparatively small contract, it is little  wonder an clement of caution exists, particularly when large sums of public funds  are involved.  Regardless  of this sorry  situation,  \  Elphie's after thought happening  and equipment for large jobs. The new   when the taxpayers hard-earned money is  hospital was a case in point.  Again, as stated in the past, it is too  bad a few of our reputable contractors  are unable to combine resources in order  involved; there is one way only of keeping7 away from suspicion and doubt. That  is by the simple process of advertising for  bids.  Beware Freeloaders  OEthe numerous, fund,raising campaigns  to which We are asked to contribute  during the course of each year, there is  little doubt, the Canadian Institute of the  Blind undoubtedly ranks among the most  worthy.  None of iis "w  wonder of vision unless by some tragic  circumstance we should lose it. To make  things easier for those who are without  sight, the Canadian National Institute of  Thc Blind works unceasingly.  Possibly one of the greatest achievements to this end is the Braille system of  reading and writing, developed over a  hundred years ago, Braille, once mastered opens up a whole new world to a  blind person.  A great deal is yet unknown as to  causes of most eye diseases leading to  blindness, and thc CNIB provides large  sums toward research as a result of which  tnuch eye damage can now be halted.  Currently, the CNIB is conducting its  annual canvass for funds, result of the  capped, and there, is little_doubt all^funds .  are extremely well spent.  However, a word of caution at this  time. Whi^ the QWB is well recognized  as being }i\ Reputable organization, there  are those operating under the guise of  similar, nstitutions and should be treated  with the Utmost suspicion.  One organization with headquarters  in the southern states makes a point of  conducting a canvass in close proximity  to that of the CNIB. The usual approach  is "I take it you wish to donate the same  amount as last year". The spiel is either  followed or proceeded with the implication that he represents a Braille institute.  Which might, to some extent, contain  an element of truth.  However, one person who took the  trouble to enquire further after the canvasser had left, discovered that about all  the benefit blind people received from  this particular group is the gift of a number of religious tracts, apparently in  Braille.  Give by all mcahs to the genuine  HAIL Group! I'm back again, after a week  of absence from Elphie. Norman Blatchford and I were part of a student exchange  taking place all over B.C., by students of  Grade ll.  YOu^Unnoticed-two new faces around  school last "WflSfcfc I'm sure. If they had as  nice a tiinel at Elphie as I had at GMlli-  wack ahd^Noriffan did at Oak Bay, I'm  sure they'll remember us for a long, long  time.'  Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the horses are galloping. Translated, that means  while I was away, happenings around Elphie were getting bigger and better. That  happening is referring to the group of guys  who are making the music to eat lunch by.  If you haven't already noticed, the noon  hour rush is in the, general direction of��  the basement, the annex or wherever the  sound of electric guitars and drums happen to come from. The guys who make  up the group are Rob Boyes (Bass guitar),  Leon Kazacoff (lead guitar), Ted Strom  (rhythm guitar), and Denis Swanson  (drums):Altogether "they have'half decid-'  ed to call themselves "Eko and The Rebounds". I was told by a reliable (?) source  that they will be playing a few songs at  a mixer on Friday. Everyone will be looking forward to their first official performance.  A Student Council meeting; was held, on  Tuesday and there was a" discussion as to  -rby Herman  whether there "will be' a Sadie-Hawkins or  Halloween Dance:vTirne will .eell.  On Friday a mixerv was held in the gym  sponsored by the Record Club. Isn't it  great to see the guys out dancing at the  mixers too. Keep up^the good work!  The next holiday is" next weekend which  is Thanksgiving. That last statement was  to warn.all the turkeys that may be close  at band. ..   -  , Meanwhile gang there's only 56 more  shopping days til Christmas so start saving your pennies.

Many residents have from time to  time expressed shock tit the condition of  water coming through their taps, indeed  one member of the village commission  could truthfully say he ha,s received only  this one complaint. It is in fact, "old hat",  : Should action actually materialize  from this inspiring document well and  good. In all probabilities the filth will  continue, in whiclt cs\sc, realistic method  of obtaining satisfaction could well start  a great deal more surprise blossoms forth   with ah official and strong complaint to  nt some of the foreign matter ending up  in the kitchen sink, although we are assured thc water |s safe for consumption.  Operator of the laundromat, Norm  Burley, certainly has very good reason to  kick, for he has for somo timo had to  change filter caps two arid thrco times  dally, On top of which, his machines  continue to clog up, requiring more service than the operation warrants.  Mr. Hurley states he has on a number of occasions taken the matter up  with the owners of the utility, needless  to say, to no avail.

Hansen is to be commended for his suggestion to finish Toredo St.  through to McDermid's corner, but I'm  afraid he will get no more support than  I did when I tried to finish the road, some  years ago.  There is no reason why the heavy ferry traffic, particularly the big trailer  trucks should be using the main street  through Sechelt, creating a hazard. Tliey  should be routed through Toredo St. thus,  by-passing the school and the children:  playingrvthere and the bad right angled  corner' past the church. Every winter  when the roads are slippery with frost or  snow, four or five cars pile up on that corner. So far we have been fortunate that  ��� no-one has been badly hurt but one of these  days there is going to be a fatal accident  and then it will be too late for, "I told you  so".  I sincerely hope that Comm. Hansen  will get some support from the rest of the  Council.

On receiving confirmation from the visitor, the  suitable accommodation is booked.  As Expo draws near, a computer sys  tem will be installed which will allow the  bureau to "maintain a minute-by-minute  record cf what: accommodation is available in Montreal. ".'���.*'  Report from Expo  The job of housing  5 million people  SPACE is now being booked for Expo 67  and the corporation for the 1967 world  exhibition   is   confident   that   housing   requirements of all visitors will be met.  Logexpo, the housing bureau for the  world exhibition has already reserved  some 100,000 bed nights for visitors in 1967.  Operating as a free liaison service, the  bureau is prepared to arrange upwards of  five million beds for exhibition visitors before their task is completed.  exhibition-time accommodation needs of  200 persons every day. They confirm reservations on approximately 100 rooms  daily far various periods of the exhibition's  six months scheduled operation."  ..,. The .requests to date ..haye been widely  varied. Logexpo has booked blocks of  accommodation for toijr groups at the request of travel agents and has "handled individual requests from all over.  More than half the reservations have  been made for residents of Ontario, but  requests have been filled from all parts of  Canada and approximately 20 per cent  are people from the United States, with  New York leading the way. Reservations  have also been made for people from  Europe, the West '.Indies and as far away  as Australia and India.  Three types of accommodation have  been booked to date; commercial establishments such as hotels and motels; apartment houses offering hotel service; institutions such as universities have made dormitory facilities available to groups or  young people.  The average hotel or motel reservation  has;beenfor #ve to" six days. The apart-  meht house bookings have been for three  days oh the average. Institutional bookings  have been for four to six days.  The bureau has; completed its examination and listiiig of camping, arid trailer  camp facilities and is now ready to arrange reservations in this area.  logexpo has begun its inspection of  private homes which will be listed with  the bureau. Inspectors are now examining  premises of those who have applied to  have rooms available through the bureau.  They are making such facilities meet the  required standards and reaching! an agreement on prices .\yhich may be charged.  Very shortly these facilities will be available for booking. It is expected that somo  20,000 private rooms, representing 40,000  beds, will be available through thc bureau  al attractive prices.  GREAT PRICE  RANGE  The daily average price range on hotels  and motels is between $8,00 and $25.00 for  single rooms  ana  $12,00  and  $40,00  for  doubles depending on quality and location.  The apartment-hotels arc charging from  ,$20 to $30 a suite, Bqds in institutional  dormitories range from $2.00 to $5.00 per  'day.  ��� ��� ���  ��� ���'���/���,       '   ������  Koorns in \private homos, are', expected  to range from $5 to $14 with the average  rate being $10 to $12 for two persons,  It ha, been estimated that 10,000,000  people will visit Expo 67, Of these, 25. per.,  cent will bo from the Montreal area and  Indications, are that another 25 per cent  ���-will1.fittt,v*,with,a,claUve8*in.,Uio���clty.���.Thls  means that somo five million Expo vial*  tors will, require accommodation.  It I. expected that "the average vinltor  will stay three clays, However, H Is also  estimated that on the average a room  . will accommodate 2,5 persons according  to thc normal experience of tho hotel and  tourist industry,  1*5,000 DAI I. Y  A   breakdown  of   requiremcnlH   shows  that during Expo's peak period in August  a daily total of 46.000 to 65,000 rooms will  have to be available every day for Expo  visitors. This will lodge 115,000 to 162,000  visitors.    \  Logexpo has been geared to handle in  excess of the peak figure. Using all facilities, the bureau is gearecj to find lodging  for 165,000 persons on, a given night.  The needs and preferences of these  115,000 persons will vary widely, ranging  from luxury suites in apartment hotels to  low cost dormitory beds for members of  youth groups. They will range through  centrally located hotels and motels to  nearby trailer parks and camp sites. They .-^  will represent the needs of individual visitors wanting a single room to families with  children and groups brought in by tourist  agencies. Logexpo is ready to look after  them all.  CONVENTIONS TOO  The biggest difficulty is to satisfy the  man who wants first choice on one of Montreal's major downtown hotels which are all  in the convention category and many -large  groups have picked Montreal as their convention headquarters in 1967. There are  225 conventions booked into these hotels  in 1967, with an average of 300 rooms per  convention, using up space for 85,000 people. In addition the hotels have booked in  1,183 groups with a minimum of 25 rooms  per group. With an average stay of three  nights, this represents 93,750 persons.  Therefore, someone planning a visit  during a heavy convention period, who  wants this type of accommodation, may  have to settle for second choice. However,  the bureau has so far been able to arrange  accommodation which' has proven satisfactory ,to such people in all cases, in  terms of location, facilities and price.  The bureau prefers all inquiries to be  made in writing to Logexpo, Administration and News Pavilion, Cite du Havre, ,  , Montreal, P.Q., A complete list of all  accommodation in the Montreal area is  kept at the bureau's headquarters.  Should ihe visitor'sVrequest be immo-,/���  diately <Jn hand, the reservation is booked  and confirmed with the establishment and  with the visitor. If tho exact requirement  is not available, the visitor is presented  ,~p'v  Kairos Church group  hold annual meeting  .

Can't help feeling though���now they've won  the election, we'll just muddle along the  ���same as we have been doing these many,  many moons. But I like to dream just: as  you all do.  During the last big' holiday here, the  highway patrols were very generous to  motorists, anyone found out of gas on the  highway was given gallons of gas to get  him to the next gas station, those wishing  to make payment could sent in a donation.  To date it has paid off, they're away ahead  of all the gas donated to motorists.  Kiwanis set up coffee stalls around  weighing stations on the highway so that  motorisJs could stop for a break and drive  off refreshed. Another fine idea which also  paid off. ������'  Read in the paper here the other week,  a lady sold her house for over $14,000 and  carried the money around in her purse  in $100 bills. Meaning to bank.it, she pa<ck-  ed it around for weeks, stopping at a  'phone booth she took most of the things  out of her purse, including the money-r-  walked off without it.

For  ,the miners punched out the trails, opened  the country and led to the establishment  of the government of British Columbia.  '<*   The reward of the miners was small  ���'compared to the riches they made possible  for their followers.  -    Gold had been found in California in 1848.  ' Three years   later   small , deposits  were  ' found in the Queen Charlottes. In 1855 a  "strike" was made on the Columbia River  just north of the U.S. border. Wandering  "fortyniners", drifting north from California heard of new finds on the Thompson  and Fraser Rivers in 1858,  GET RICH QUICK  The reports fomented dreams 'in the  minds of men across the continent and in  Europe. The tforatia Al&er theory of bootblacks becoming millionaires through initiative  wasn't  taken seriously   in  those  Fraser later.  The Indian disputes resulted in formation of a band of 150 miners who marched  from Yale and won a peace treaty. It also  resulted in a visit by Vancouver Island  governor James Douglas, who as the near  Hospital lost another valued member  when Mrs. J. Love -left 4he-district-'last-  week.  * Before leaving,  Jtrs.  Love was 'guest  of honor at a farewell luncheon.*beldJ by  born poor. Most were born poor with little  opportunity to better themselves. The station they were born in was the station in  which usually, they died.  But here was the great get-rich-quick  est officer of tbe Crown, appointed constables and magistrates and arranged for  survey 'and disposal qf the goldfieIds.  * Bar mining claims were tv^enty-five feet  square. From some of these postage-stamp  plots, fortunes were panned. Hill's- Bar,  south of Yale was one of the earliest placer  mining1 sites, the longest worked and best  paying. -  Official returns that year showed gold  worth $52Q,353 was taken from B.C. river  beds. Unofficial estimates doubled the figure?.  TROOPS SENT  Hard-bitten miners from California,  many-of them' imbued with the dog-eat-  dog philosophy of the earlier gold rush,  set a pace of lawlessness which many  newcomers were quick to adopt.  This was nipped in the bud in 1859 when  rumors of- trouble at Yale swept downstream to the mainland's new capital at  New Westminster. The incident of "Ned  McGowan's War" was linked with sports  of a movement to annex the goldfields  to the United States.  Commanding officer of the Royal Engineers, Col. Moody, led a party of soldiers,  sailors and* marines from. British men-of-  war up the Fraser's shores. It was January, and inland, the river was crusted  with ice. ..-.,.  He found at Yale that the reports were  section to B.C.-���tbe Stikine territory, reaching ;north to the 6pth parallel, (the north -  boundary still existing). "   .  \, vJ.  The year 1863 was the peak year. Esti-  _matpsj>f_ gold production reached as" high  'as'$6,OQ0,fK)0. Official records said, $3,913,-  563,  Best known among lucky searchers  was "Cariboo Cameron", (John A. Cameron), who came out with $150,000 which  he lost id the next twenty years���a reckless pattern followed by most of the gold  pioneers.     - ' '  The high production era continued  through 1864 and 1865, though slightly abated, and the day of the capitalist arrived.  Individual miners became high-paid laborers in mdny cases.  New "shallow diggings" were located  on the Peace, Stikine, Kootenay and Big  Bend. In 1865 there were two thousand  men in the Kootenay area. A year later  the find began to "peter out". But the  search went on in Omineca and Cassiar  regions with sporadic flumes throughout  the province until 1876. Then, after almost  twenty years of mining by placer, shallow  and deep methods, production declined.  Men looked to other livelihoods and new  riches were found in the province.

In 1853, due to Hudson's Bay Company  reluctant policies of settlement-���(settlers  boded ill for the fur trade), it was estimated there were but 450 settlers west of  the Rockies.  Five years later gold-hungry hordes,  soon to number 25,000, swarmed into the  new land. In April, 450 gold seekers boarded a siiigleP vessepat Saiif Francisco and  headed north. In May another 1,262 arrived. In June 7,149 and in July 6,278.  They came by land and by sea. The  gold dust trail started often as far away  as Hawaii, Central and South America, or  at Esquimau, Victoria or Puget Sound  ports. Overnight Victoria became a bustling city of tents, shacks and saloons. Merchants emptied their stores and filled their  strong boxes.  Men heading into Yale and Hope, paid  fifty dollars for a barrel of flour, small  fortunes for mining or .cooking utensils.  Once supplied, the would-be miners turned to the problem of crossing to the mouth  of the Fraser���-river of gold.  $00 ONE DAY  V|t is recorded in the Viotoria Gazette  of t��at year:  " "The Fraser River Flotilla���our bay  "presented a fine sight on the occasion of  , the departure of about thirty skiffs, canoes  There is an outstanding account against' .and sailboats for Fraser River.

"A , the boats darted to and fro, previous to starting, and .finally took their  leave, moving off gracefully toward the  mouth of the bay, the;enthusiasm.of the  spectators vented itself in, loud cheers."

The appearance of the troops proved the country was  under control of a determined government  and reduced the fears of lawful men who  often advised, "Sleep with your gun handy.".

He has called for a reconfirmation or otherwise present national leadership, adding that national leaders have no  lifetime contract.  Mr. Camp's Toronto speech which he  is repeating elsewhere has been taken  as opposition to his own leader. This is  true. The Tory president has never tried  to hide his feeling that Mr. Diefenbaker  should step down though he has neVer  used his official position to lead a reyolt.  He took over national directorship of the  party in 1962 after an election which was  the writing on the wall for the Diefenbaker government but in the 'months that  followed kept himself clear of open dissensions.  His outspoken words following closely  'ja Mr. Diefenbaker's clear indication that  /ie was not stepping down stemmed undoubtedly from a conviction that the time  was ripe to cross swords with his leader  and the results will be seen when the association meets in November. So far Mr.  Diefenbaker has bested all enemies though  hardly in the Lincoln tradition of making  them friends. He could do so again.  But Mr. Camp's remarks were not  directed solely to Ms own party and leader. His words will also be heard by liberals who meet in Ottawa on October 10.  The leadership issue may not come into  the open���certainly not for the same reasons that inspire dissident Tories. It would  be hard to find a greater contrast in politics than the prime minister and the leader  of the opposition. .But for very different  reasons and from very different motives  one (Aaracteri^  ^TCrhm^^-the"'stamp of indecisiatL  Mr. Pearson, unrivaled as a leader in  diplomacy and democracy, finds it difficult  to force his will on anyone. Not only has  this quality influenced his attitude to his  own cabinet; it has influenced his cabinet's  _tttitude,.to.^parliamefiL-.Tbe former Liberal  government, more through the, influence  of its dominant figure, the late C. D.  Howe, than that of Louis St. Laurent, was  destroyed by its contempt of Parliament.  The Pearson government, if it continues in  the direction in which it has been going,  could be destroyed by parliament. It is  not alone its minority position in the House  of Commons that has brought a super-  sensitiveness to the will of parliament  though as Finance Minister Mitchell Sharp  has said lack of a strong majority"has"led  the government tp- emphasize the responsibility of the opposition. It is a deep feeling ftnirlr nno  that parliament reflects .the voice of the wuick one  people which, of ^course, few parliaments   PEGASUS player (white shirt) slips    disappointing game for home team  ever have. ��� quietly in to steal the ball from   fans for Pegasus lost 3-0.

It was a   lost one game and won one to date.  of government policy. The result has been    ��� : '��� r���   legislative  delay and the appearance of     _,        -_�� .,  indecision, never seen...more clearly than    AltS COIHIC.I SpOnSOTS . . .        ..(.:..  in the bill revising the Bank Act. Three   .",.;...,,. ,.��� ..,���.., .'.   times the biU or its main points of controversy were shuttled between caucus and  cabinet before the government could make  tip its own mind. To a lesser extent the  same applied to Mr. PickersgilTs transportation legislation. And even when it has  obtained the, blessing of Liberal members  government legislation is often little more  than a suggestion from which the govern-  meat will retreat in face of opposition.  There  are  reassuring  indications  that  a-change may be in the offing. The latest  issue is Medicare. When Mr.  Sharp  an*.  nounced government | plans for containing  inflation which included a one-year, delay  of Medicare he had the. audacity to do so  without having his speech approved in advance by the Liberal members. '  An open howl of protest from the back  benchers  followed.   Then  came  demands  addressed to the prime  minister that  a  special meeting of caucus be called to de-  cide  whether the government should  or  should   not   retreat   from   its   Medicare  stand. Those demands so far Mr, Pearson  has resisted., The battle has  still to bo  join��d. The regular meeting of the caucus  ��� has been called far October 4 and nothing  can stop Medicare being the chief topic  of discussion.  But this time tho government may well let the back benchers know  that thoy are not running the country,  CAPITOL HILL CAPSULE  Tho federal government's stand on tax  sharing with thc provinces expounded to  the lax structure committee of finance  ministers last* week**jR",a*,complctG*rcversal"  of thc principle on which the proposals of  1045 were based. Following the recommendations of the .lowcU-Slrole Commission the government of thnt day took tho  position that to use fiscal policy effectively Jn regulating the national economy it  must, have control of all direct taxation  (personal Income, corporation and estate  taxes)** Jt was ready to share lhe proceeds  with tho. provinces but Jovcla of taxation  must be decided in Ottavya. When tax rent-  a I payments were replaced by tax abatements it wa�� still on tho assumption that  it was ono plo, Today tho province, get 25  per cent of personal Income tax (Quebec  48 per cent) and about one quarter of corporation i��x, The government has fiald  thoro wilj bo no ifurthc^ abatement*, that  Ottawa "will jnotiowcr Its laxea so:that, tho���  province can raise theirs. But at the samo  time rt is preaching a gospel of fiscal independence with each province setting its  own tax levels which Is a complete1 denial  of iim economic Jhml^viJ^mium^-m.

Holland;        Recent visitors at the home of Mr.  and Mrs. -A. Swason were Mr. and Mrs.  R. Miller pf Vancouver.  Ernie Cartwright has been working at  Squamish.  Mr. and Mrs. Charles Strom have returned home after visiting Mrs. Strom's  sisters at Victoria and Nanaimo. Also visiting their daughter at Coquitlam and Mrs.  Strom's sister at Ladner.  Miss Barbara Blakeman is employed  in Vancouver.  Mr. Andy Anderson and his parents  have moved into their new home on O'Shea  Road.  Visiting Mrs. 1.

Drummond that he did not agree���"this is  our democratic system and I see nothing  wrong with it," he said.  The convention was attended by all  council members, chairman and municipal  clerk^Charles   Gooding.  Another informative convention was reported on by works foreman Fred Holland  who disclaimed the popular conception  that conventions are a waste of time.  Convention of the Public Works Association was interesting and of great bene:  fit, he told council. It was attended by  works foremen, supervisors and enginers.  Among ���'. subjects up for discussion was  that of public relations between work  crews and the public. This involved treatment of the public, explaining reasons for  what might appear frequent digging up  of roads and sidewalks for pipe laying,  etc. Counter-acting vandalism, snow removal methods and pipe laying techniques  and many other municipal problems provided a wealth of valuable information said  Mr. Holland.  An item of interest emerging from studies of vandalism proves that fines are  virtually worthless. Many authorities have  found that when the punishment takes the  form of enforced work, the effect is far  greater than petty fines.  "This is ar eceht innovation on' the Peninsula started by Magistrate Charles Mit-  telsteadt who has already put young offenders on fatigue detail.  WATER  PERMITS  Three more applications for water connections received due discussion, one was  refused, two approved.  _ Mr. E. B. Hogben applied for a connection to his property on Gower Point Road  stating he understood village system was  to be expanded and that he hoped it would  include his area.  It was moved he be notified council  had no plans at this time for any extension of the mains outside the village.  John Hind Smith applied for a hook-up  to his property in the vicinity of Henry  Road. It was moved his application be  approved and placed on file for connection  according to priority.  William Graham of Pratt Road was also  Council unanimously supported a move  a letter be written newly elected MLA Isabel Dawson, seeking her support in the  matter. ��� V  SEASIDE  PLAZA  Deputy Fire Marshall R. Wilson Reported he has received ho further report from  the electrical inspector regarding ..possible  action on the Cy Johnston block, considered a fire hazard by both council and fire  department.  Mr. Wilson said he would now write  the Provincial Fire Marshal's office seeking guidance as to course of action and  also pointing out lack of a written report  by the electrical inspector.  Commissioners assurred him they would  support whatever action be considered accessary.  COURT OP   REVISION  Court of Revision will be held in Gibsons at the Municipal Hall at 2 p.m. November 1st and will consist of Chairman W.  Hodgson, Commissioners Fladager and  Drummond.  ROAD WORK  Commissioner Fred Feeney drew attention to the fact the corners of Abbs and  Sargent Roads at School Road required additional, culverts and ...fill, in ,onJer,; to .widen,  them. Vehicles have to go over the centre  of the road when turning off School Road,  he explained.  It was agreed the work be carried out  by village works department.
