APPLICATION for a  Class 3  licence has been made to the  Air Transport 'Board" by TyeO  Airlines  of  Sechelt,   which  in  effect offers  transportation to/i  points -up the Met at set char' *  ges and at single rate fares.   | ��  Presently,    flights    are    o|^  charter only  which  means a *&  passenger   seeking   transports! t  tion to any  of the points  in*f>j  volved, has to pay cost of the  round trip. *  Operating from the Sechelt  base, the company seeks the  licence for such points as Sim  Creek, Smanit Creek, Malibji  Peninsula, Egrnont, Deserted  Bay, McCannel Creek, Crab*  apple Creek and Jack Bay.  It is hoped to service these  specific points twice weekly,  at first, with a possible increase later.  Airline operator, Al Campbell  told The Times, "This licence  would cut cost by half for anyone travelling alone to any of  the points on the route. We feel  it will be welcomed by our  customers and look to their  support"  Mr. Campbell agreed that in  the case of three passengers  travelling together to the same  place, cost would be higher  than by charter.  Money still talks;3 but during  the coin shortage it has trouble making cents.  Sunshine Coast  Gospel Church  (Undenominational)  Sunday School  10 a.m.  Church Service  11:15 a.m.  PASTOR REV. S.

That we are losing thousands  of tourist dollars is obvious.  Why? /For 'the- simple reason  we do little or nothing to develop, this lucrative, but highly diversified'trade. Once again' we  asky why?.. Because we don't  know bow and if an expert told  its how, we would ignore him*  that's why. We are too busy  wrangling- and nit-picking in a  hicktown style to see anything  but our own apparently unsur-  mountable problems that aren't  problems at all.  These so-called problems  would disappear overnight if  those in charge of the village  destinies could resolve their  own. picayune differences and  get down to the business for  which they were elected. Whether there are goal posts in  Hackett Park or somebody got  a load of gravel is of little imT  portance. Those piffling matters could be settled in a few  minutes, if they need to be  settled at all. The matter of  outside contractors doing local  work and being paid for out  of villagefunds is^also of .small  consequence. Bids should be  called for on any job and if the  locals can't meet outside prices  there isn't much left to talk  about. The recent complaints  about outsiders doing a poor  job and then getting out with  their*: cheque: Js also ja: simple  matter to control. The erstwhile B.C. Electric set a pattern for that When, they put  they power line through. They  awarded the contracts and  when they were completed the  work was inspected and payment made on a percentage ba  appearing. In that same issue  was a photograph, loaned by an  oldtimer, that-confirmed what  was   said'' in  the  column:   It  showed the beach at Sechelt before the old hotel burned down.  It was a good beach, a smooth  beach of light gravel and sand.  Where is it?' Some people have  said it has been washed away  by erosion? It was nothing of  the kind. cThis; column pointed  out some, time ago that it .was  sold,; with; provincial  government permission, to Vancouver  construction interests.  It  was  handy  and- easily  loaded,   so  barges came in and were loaded  by  hand,  of  course,   and  what would have been one of  our   attractions   ended up  in  Vancouver', b<urlLd!tng|  and  streets. The restoration of tins  sandy beach, at provincial government expense, should "be of  paramount  importance to  the  village   council;   not .whether  somebody got overpaid for a  job be didn't do On the prop^  erty it was alleged to haye bean  done on. That too, could have  been  easily  handled.  The job  was  either done on the  area  specified   or   it   wasn't   The  remedy  here is  obvious;  pay  nothing until the work has been  inspected    and    approved    by  competent people.  '..��, Returning -���to - ti>e�� Sechelt  beach, which from all reports  at the moment is nothing more  than a sewerage trap, the government allowed it to be taken  away so it is  their responsl-  bility to see that it is returned:  There are  lots  of  sand  hills  here   for  .that  purposed ? The  sewerage problem  is one for  the   department   of   public  health and should be laid on  their doorstep.  The big argument put forward by many when the development of Sechelt village is  mentioned in terms of tourist  do now, ..if ^ we  are going to develop the tourist trade, is to contact^seyexal  of the 'tourist associations, in  the . United States -and^Cad-  ada. We can'explain t�� them  what we -have here -and- how.  best to develop it. Let's not be  loo modest about it; admit  we're ,broke,' or almost..so.

Perhaps it isn't our lot to be  a    rocketi^i^argg^gORistC^ntre.^:  There are still some people in  this troubled world who would  like nothing better than to get  away from the'noisy city and  spend a. quiet month in pleasant surroundings that haven't  been  marred by * modern^f up- ~  roars that are accepted as normal. There must be or there  wouldn't be so many., summer  homes    as   is    evidenced   by  Sandy Hook. There aire many  who don't have summer homes  but like to sit and look out over  the water from the front of a  motel. Others like to be on the  ���water & bring their own boats  At almost every place there  are facilities for them to put  ���their, boats in the water and  they stay for a while and spend  money. No comment on this ns  far. as Sechelt is concerned is  necessary. We have two large  bodies of water, one open and  the other, sheltered.

Within the past two y^ars, millions of  dollars have gone into constructional projects  which in most cases have been carried out by  outside contractors using outside labour. A  few examples in point, include: The new St.  Mary's Hospital, a bank in Gibsons, the new  Co-op store in Gibsons, the Gibsons Municipal  'Hall, and by far the largest expenditure of all,  the schools, shooting up like mushrooms  throughout the whole district.  Apparent reason for this mass removal  of money to boost the economy of larger and  more prosperous areas, is that .we lack contractors with sufficient men and equipment  :to carry out large projects. Also,, it is said that  in the past, tenders have been called for pro-,  jects within the capabilities of local contractors  who in turn have failed to tender.  This is a sorry state of affairs, particularly  in the case of_ public fun^  the overburdened taxpayer to supply work for  lower mainland workers.  We appear to have a number of small  building operators, some of whom have taken  on substantial contracts in the past and it is  obvious that with lower overheads and being  already in the district, they should be in an  excellent position regarding low tenders. With  an unending program of school building, there  is work to keep at least one medium sized  builder fully occupied, on a year round basis.  Shortly, we are to vote on another presentation pf the recently defeated three quarter  million dollar School Referendum, should it  go through, it is a foregone conclusion that the  bulk of it will again go off the Peninsula. It  takes little imagination to visualize the boost  to the local economy if the money stayed in the  area.  As the district grows, this sorry situation  will probably resolve itself at the same time, it  might prove of advantage should two or three  of our reputable builders combine forces and  equipment to enable them to successfully bid  on some of the high priced projects which in  some cases, too many people in high places  are eager to^.awardfoutside. ���.���,,  BaMgerotis to Relax  ALTHOUGH rivers and streams have, for  generations, continued to idly flow beneath multitudinous bridges, scientific progress  has accelerated during the past half century to  fantastic proportions, while educational standards are such that within another decade it  will require a university degree to obtain the  position of road sweeper.  From which, one would naturally be led  to believe we are fast becoming a highly educated society.  "* Such, however, seems to be far from so.  In fact, closer study of the daily press, clearly  indicates the fact we are a particularly stupid  people, sadly lacking in knowledge of so many  facets of present day life.  One of the most popular phrases today,  used by educators and knowledgeable people in  elevated positions, is "the public must be educated." We have apparently reverted to primitive beings, completely out, of touch with  modern times. Fortunately there are a few  dedicated saviours left who wish to save us,  and undoubtedly, by doing so, relieve us by  one means or another of a substantial portion  of our hard earned loot.  We have the cry to educate the public to  appreciate recreation, join groups, of eager  beavers who like to chase balls around large,  fields, take swimming lessons, learn to square  dance, the list is endless with something for  em TTSoiTOSuti Evident  THERE is a new social" threat around these  <    days���the nian who quit smoking. He  becomes, given a whiff of encouragement, more  moral than a reformed lush.  After living with a fire under hjis nose  for years and years, the fellow who joins the  Ncvcr-Touchpms suddenly can relate the most  amazing tales of improved health and mental  improvement ever heard by medical science,  One wpujd thinks that smoking conld., be ���catc?  gorizcfj with bubonic plague, multiple sclerosis,  "Keep this up and they won't need to build one . . . we can  send them ours."  ���Specially created for The Times by Graham Harrop  everyone. Without recreation, we are not living  properly.  ~ Then there is-the demand that the public  be educated in the hazards of pollution. It  would appear we are not conscious of the  worsening situation.  There has of late been another call filling  the smog filled air, that of the need to educate  the public to appreciate the importance of  education  Yet another-subject sadly lacking in our  presently deplorable education is that of  tourism. It has been considered necessary to  educate us to realize the potential of this great  industry.  These are all items of semi-major importance, the lesser subjects include such things  as litter dumping^ driving habits, courtesy,  dangers of smoking etc.  Admirable though the intentions of our  would be instructors might be, it does lead one  to puzzle out just how the heck We ever progressed past the club wielding stone age. Indeed, considering the number of subjects'we  are s^ill uneducated in, we would probably be  far better off living ii\,.the considerably less  complex stone age. ���      .. <.-.���;,, ..,...;-,������...^ '..,.,,.,.",..:,.1..,  One thing is certain, with the. present  dangerous population explosion facing us, it  will be a long time before we are going to be  asked to educate ourselves to relax.  ��iWHMam��mMi>W#M'mwm  ^ii((>H����ft#Jlj*����.*tlSalirJ>s,  SlE^EUpjariNWuTWs  Published Wednesdays nt Sechelt  on h,C,'n Sunshine Coast  '."

Celebrating her  80th birthday only a few days  ago, Mrs. Sladey was born in  Tornio, North Finland, in 1886,  was   married   and  had  three  children before arriving in Canada almost 40 years later. Locating in this area in 1935 with  her husband Peter, who passed  away   suddenly   almost   two  years ago, Mrs. Sladey helped  to clear the land they had purchased  and  assisted  Peter in  the building. ofs their home in  its beautiful location overlooking   Agamemnon   Channel.  Roads   being   non-existant   in  those  early   days,   Peter   and  Emmy, in common with other  early settlers* had to transport  their   building   materials   and  othersupplies* by boat;mainly  from  Pender  Harbor.   Fishing  in the summer and building m  the winter ultimately resulted  in the completion of the substantial and 'well-built home in  which Mrs. Sladey resides and  in which she takes great pride.  Peter and Emmy Sladey  were among many families who  had lived through the troubled  their three children,-Ann, Vic  and Olli, the.) Sladeys, who' had  heard many reports of the good  life in Canada,, made their big  decision, took passage and'arrived' in -Vancouver,; in ,1927.  Many, stories' of B,C.'s fishing  industry had been circulated in  , North1 Finland, * a' country famous for" its" own salmon fish-,  ing,-and it was with the intention of becoming a part of  this industry f that -made tbe  'Sladeys choose' Vancouver as  their destination. Due to regulations .concerning the status of.  immigrants -and the period of  time required before being eligible for Canadian citizenship,  several years elapsed before  the family finally settled in Egrnont and Peter commenced to  fish commercially, a career  which saw him gill-netting on  the B.C. coast for many years  until his untimely death in  1964.  A resourceful and active person whose energetic nature belies her 80 years, Mrs. Emmy  Sladey carries on in tbe manner to which she has grown accustomed over the years. Her  family, her many friends, her  home and her garden are the  interests that fill in the daily  tare of this fine old lady. May  she be spared to enjoy them  for a considerable time to  come.

Deficit in the Instruction Account which includes teachers'  salaries, teaching supplies,  school clerical and instructional expense was $57,000. Teachers salaries accounted for  $30,000 of this amount. Underspending in other categories of  the '65 budget brought the overall deficit closer, to $40,000.  Amount expended in 1964 on  Instruction was $514,904, in 1965  this figure rose to $616,846.  ROUTINE  Secretary-Treasurer Peter  Wilson stated at last week's  meeting of toe school board  that during a recent visit to  Victoria he had mentioned the  ' fact that a deficit had materialized in the '65 budget and apparently this is quite routine.

Squarlngly Yours   "���by Maurice Hemstreet  PARDON me for just a few moments, would you permit me.to enter your thoughts just long enough to  bring you the highlights of last week's square dancing  on the one and only Sunshine Coast? Thank you.  The   Wilson   Creek   learner "-   '      "  classes on Monday nights are  on their way to producing $t>*  ^ejt _,square,;,_d^  me wrong,the first two or/Sree  nights are not easy even M you  have square danced the^Jold  way before, but I still say it's  well worth a little effort to  learn one of the world's greatest hobbys, for fun, relaxation,  friendship and just plain, good,  healthy recreation.  : Last ���fuesday joight the Pender Harbour Squares took on  two  lessons* without a   bit of  trouble and contemplated their  -course '. up^ to the end of the  eleventh   lesson,   so   they   arel  without a doubt over; the top. ^  You  see,  when  you  reach  a  certain point in anything you  do, in learning, you will notice  that everything seems to.fait  into   place   with   less   trouble'  than to start with; Does that  .make   sense?   If >'���' not;'-comev.'  square dancing and I will prove  ,  to you that after about three  nights, one call will come after  the other  and   you   will  find  yourself  square  dancing   with  very little difficulty, that is ii;  you listen to the calls,  (The Sechelt Jr, Squares right  now are one lesson '-'ahead of  Pender and they say that's  where they will remain, Well,  as I told 4hem last Friday  njght, if they* don't talk on the  floor and listen to Uio calls they  would not hnve, J��ny trouble  getting ahead and this, Is just .  what they did, They went  through two awl one-half lessons with very few walk thrus,  T^hls goes for dancers who have  been square dancing for a, number of years too, If they don't  listen to tho calls, naturally  they won't know what thoy are  supposed to do and the con-  flcqucnces aro thoy point a finger at tho culler and sajf, why  doesn't ho watch what ho , is  calling so that the .square dan-  ; ,configures will work at'��� loaat  part of tho time,  (Well. that's tho way It goes  at any square dance. You will  find that some dancers figure  they den't have to listen, ..but  it dees upset the one who  would like to listen to the calls  an* receive their enjoyment  out of doing a dance without  any mistakes. However, in any  language, any country or any  pUice, square dancing is fun,  fVfse*you afcthevnext;squar|  dance.

Mr. Peterson said the course  is particularly valuable for  people who are precluded from  many jobs because they left  school too early and were unable to acquire subsequent vocational training.

Wasaungton  Tbe night was dark, I stumbled  as I went  With not a path to guide my  way; *  I felt some rocks beneath my  wayward feet,  Another step was in slick clay.  I tried to think the -way from  which I came,  Or even which way I  should  go.  I   asked   myself  the  question;  once again;  Again' 'twas  clear,  I did not  know.  Then hoping this would put me  on the track,  I changed the pattern of my  flight  And thougb I felt that I��was  going wrong  I  turned   off sharply  tof my  right.  I lurched and fell; then recognized the place  From which I long since started this mad race.

Sechelt teen's  NOT LEGAL  Legal negotiations over the  purchase of the Madeira Park  property are still not finalized.  Lawyers are still waiting to  hear from the Pender Harbour  Community Club, although the  deed was sent then) on Nov,  17, No work will be done on  the grounds until negotiations  are complete.  COMMUNITY  CONFERENCE  Trustees hope to hold a community conference on education  possibly lasting l'/a days, with  three sepakers. Chairman Joe  Horvath believes there is a  heed to make the public aware  of the changes In education and  the need for education. Trus,  tees Cella Fisher, Peggy Volcn  and Don Douglas will work  with two teachers on plans for  tho conference which will probably replace the annual teachers' convention. v  ff%wm% less  ANNUAL Meeting of Sechelt Volunteer Fire Brigade,  was held at the fire hall January 26, 1966, Fire  Chief Tom Parish presiding.  In his opening remarks Mr. : '���  Parish said:  During the year 1965 the fire  brigade answered 19 calls, compared with 23 calls for the pre-,  vious year.The number of calls -  to extinguish grass < and brush  fires was substantially lower,  which may be taken as an indication that residents are becoming more and more conscious of fire prevention around  their, own properties; In this  connection I would like to thank  the members for their prompt  response to fire alarms as  there is no doubt but that their  quick actions often prevented  what might otherwise have  been considerable, ,. property  damage, and for their co-operation, not only in fighting fires  but also in servicing the equipment, draining and repairing  hose, flushing hydrants and the  .many .otiier, services 9yoluntar-  ily given during the year.  Considerable progress has  been made in establishing a  Fire Protection District in this  area and it is expected that  incorporation will' be completed in the next few months.  The secretary submitted the  financial statement as at December 31, 1965 which showed  total income for the year of  possibly the staff room at Gibsons Elementary.
