Baha'  is believe that all our present  day religions are but different aspects of one faith ... a  faith slowly unfolded to man  by all the world's great Prophets: Moses, Jesus, Buddha,  Mohammed���back to the dawn  of time. Real religion does not  divide men. It unites them.  The ithings which divide them  are superficial differences in  doctrine or ritual. We believe  .that the time has come when  these can be set aside' in order that all men may see mankind as one race and God as  pne Father.

Wednesday, March 23, 1966  The Reader's Right  ��� *���" "������^���"���~,"~~,^~"-���~n~f "innmnnmninntru1  Faee ��alne emirate  ALTHOUGH subject to some controversy at  the time, there is little doubt the new  Gibsons Municipal Hall was a wise move, for  after all, a growing community revolves around  its council offices and certainly the old cabin  was totally inadequate for an efficient administration.  This same situation is duplicated in  Sechelt, the existing building serves a multitude of uses and during issuance of motor  vehicle licence plates, as many as three people  have to work in one small room. Should more  than three interested members of the public  chose to attend a council meeting, the multipurpose room is greatly overcrowded.  It is therefore a welcome decision by  council to undertake establishment of a new  and up-to-date municipal hall. Not only will  it prove conducive to rather more serious  council debate, it will permit far superior  office administration and possibly of equal  importance will create a front.  In order to grow and prosper, the district  has to be sold, and no salesman succeeds  under a cloak of poverty. It is an odd human  trait that a prosperous appearance enwurages  business. It would therefore appear obvious,  a respectable municipal hall would be an asset  for where a man is judged by his clothes, a  municipality is surely judged by its municipal  hall.--        ��� ������ "" V   ,  With a view to the future and as an  economic factor, council is investigating pos*  sibilifies of racludmg ^  rentable office space, even a court room which  is also badly needed at this time. Rentals would  therefore offset to some extent, payments on  the project.  Another badly needed building will be  a structure at Hackett Park, to include rest  rooms, changing rooms and concession booth.  Little or nothing has been done to improve the  park for some years. This project* although  a modest one, is a start, and is at least an improvement on nothing.  We can day-dream year-in year-out about  projects far beyond our means with the result  we get nothing. For instance, desirable though  a community hall complex might be, it will  be many moons before a village of less than  500 population could consider such an undertaking. On the other hand, there are those who  feel the village should not spend money at this  time on even this small building. This attitude  is as -far out. asthe ofter extreme, _^  is to be commended for at last talcing the  initiative. To progress we have to spend, but  wisely.  Mot A Degree Mill  MANY educators have deplored the tendency    advise you to begin immediate negotiations  to look on college as a degree mill and  a gateway to better jobs and salaries, rather  than as an opportunity for intellectual development.  Now Dr. Robert F. Goheen, president of  Princeton University, goes a step farther in  delineating the purpose of a college education,  in its fullest sense.  Dr. Goheen told the incoming freshmen:  "If any of you has come to Princeton  hoping only to accumulate knowledge, I would  with some sort of institution wfhere you can  attach yourself to a pipeline of inanimate  learning and become full, like a storage tank,  sealed by a diploma, and otherwise useless."  In his plea that the pursuit of higher learning be "a moral quest as well as jan intellectual one," Dr. Goheen cites the need not only  for clear thinking but for "common standards  of decency and citizenship" in a nation disrupted by tensions and violence.  His words command attention.  Irresponsible Seamtlal Monger  DESCRIBED by a Vancouver columnist as the  "Mudslinger" affair, the recent squalid  politicing in Ottawa leaves a lot to be desired  and raises grave doubts as to the type of people  elected to hjgh office.       Not because of the elleged clandestine  love affairs between members of parliament  and a German female of dubious repute, but  such a responsible office, even worse is the  fact he still holds that position.  Since taking office, the government has  had a heavy torch to bear, at best its position,  has bpen a shaky one, it how faces a crisis.  Far from solidifying the ���Liberal image, Mr.'  Cardin has proved hirflsel. a scandal monger  of poor calibre and in so doing, has dragged his  from which face saving is virtually impossible.  All we can hope for at this time is that  our "worthy prime minister, has the fortitude to  see the whole sorry business through as quickly  as possible and get down to his real job of  working for the betterment of his country. An  election now could well prove disastrous for  both major parties stand every chance of defeat  and the consequences leave little to the  ..... imagination.'"     ,.,,,.,.,,,..,,,,:.,...,.,., ���,,  because of the fact the minds responsible for   own government down to the murky depths  making the allegations public, simply  as a    *��� -*--i- * ^��� ���- <~i���_.���- ��� *..-  political manouvre, are in such a state of  despondency that one trembles ./to., think the  well-being of the country is in such hands.  World conflict, labour upheavals, starvation in countries less fortunate than ours,  welfare and old age pension increases, the list  of problems which in one way and another we  arc involved, is endless dnd all worthy of the  M1"1^ consideration. Yet, our gallant represcn.  tatives in Ottawa prefer to drag out details of  what actually amounts to petty philandering  by a few fellow politicians. An everyday oc-  currancc probably indulged in by some members of all parties, certainly not desirable to  many but the sort of thing taking place daily  jn all walks of life. ,  Naturally, suggestions of sabotage had to  be thrown in to add to the fiasco and to give  justifiable grounds for bringing the dirty washing out into the open.  _ Former associate defence minister in the  Diefcnbakor government, Pierre Sevigny. expressed amazement that the government should  pnrnlize. the nations business over what h a  totally absurd affair.

"The maintenance at Oakal-     '" :���'  la Prison ��� Farm continues - to  present an insoluble problem.  The obvious solution would appear to be its gradual replacement."  The West wing of Oakalla is  the "holding" unit for persons  alleged to have committed  crimes and for others who are  awaiting appeals of - their convictions.  This unit, houses- about 200  Inmates of all age groups and  types ��� of crime. Of this group  about 25 to 30 are awaiting  appeal, some of these for over  one year.  Amongst the very youngest  are numbers of children who  have been wards of the Government for years and have  been shifted' from foster home  to foster home-, on to Brannan  Lake,and now Oakalla.  Fifteen to twenty of the prisoners are 15 to 17 years old.  The   majority   of  the  initiates  are under .21-years. The rest .i  range in ages lip to 65 years: "  Seventy-five   percent  of, the -  inmates awaiting trial.could b. ""  out on bail if they had mone'y.

Banner that a photo-copying  machine vl>e. purchased.  David Douglas . . .  Douglas Fir perpetuates  name of peat botanist  A COMMON error is the assumption that the Douglas  fir was named after the first governor of the mainland colony of British Columbia, Sir James Douglas.  But the man whose name is perpetuated by the tree so  vital to the weSt co&t l^onomy was David Douglas, one  of the world's great botanists and explorers.  David  Douglas was  bom in  #'fitl.Wl*(��J��l*��^Wiett(MW)Hi"��tl(Sr((��HM.Wi��iWlti*.  Scotland in 1799. A bright student he fell in love with botany.  At age 24 he was chosen by  the Horticultural Society to go  abroad insearch of specimens  for London's Kew Gardens.  In Philadelphia he saw specimens collected by the U.S. Lewis and Clark expedition to the  Pacific Northwest and he resolved to also explore those regions. He endured a 256 day  trip around the Horn during  1824-25 and established a headquarters at Fort Vancouver on  the Columbia River. He ranged east and north as far as the  Rockies for two years, sending, his specimens back'to England where he soon was famous.  In 1827, David Douglas, made  an overland journey to York  Factory on Hudson's Bay  through 3,600 mlies of wilderness, From there he sailed .to  England where in 1828 because  of his knowledge of the area  involved he was consulted in  the negotiations then in progress in the Oregon boundary  dispute, Soon he was back in  the coast regions and resolved  to go overland to Alaska. He  got as far as the Skeena River  before the hardships of his  journey, ill health and hostile  Indians caused him to turn  back. In 1833 he arrived back  At Fort Vancouver; in seven  years he had collected more  specimens than any other botanist had over done over so  wide an area.  \ In 1834 Douglas went to Honolulu where he tumbled into a  pit which had been dug to catch  wild cattle���and a captive bull  gored him to death. There was  some suspicion that he had  been pushed, but this was never proved, He died nt the ago  '   of 35,  He   vvafj   credited   not   only  with .-making ��4horflr�� t - report-  on the Douglas fir but with the  prophecy that it would bring  wealth to the people who ultimately settled the Pacific  coast. He was loved and respected by the Indians who claimed he drank boiling water,  having watched him mix an  effervescent beverage. And af-  iter seeing him light his pipe  with a magnifying glass they  revered his almost as a God.  This will permit the clerk  . to provide commissioners with  a copy of the minutes after  each meetings as .is the custom  with most municipal offices,  he said. The present miStiM of  the. clerk^|i^ng to read them  out before < each meeting is a  time waster, Jbe added.  Clerk Ted Raynor agreed  such a machine would be an  asset and explained that  change of the procedure had  been discussed in the past but  no action had ever been taken.  Question of a copying machine arose following a successful move by Comm. Lang that  commissioners be provided  with a copy of applicable bylaws. The clerk bad stressed  the point that in order to do  this, it would be necessary to  employ a stenographer.  NEW VILLAGE HALL  Prior to proceeding with  , plans, for .a snew_municip^l,ball,s  council had queried possibility  of proving quarters for a court  room and magistrate's office.  A letter from tbe attorney-general's dept. indicated that when  no conflicting building is availableconsideration^ is given to  such a proposal. It was also  pointed out that in some communities, the reeve allowed the  use of council chambers for  this purpose. Comm. L. Hansen said he saw no reason why  the new building should not  have a council chamber sufficiently large to accommodate  court room requirements, ,  Discussion terminated on a  move that the matter be tablekl  for a later committee meeting,  at which it is expected the  chairman will be present.  MORE   ABOUT   ...  �� Clinic site  ���from page 1  with council's decision, Mr.  Procknow said he had no other  alternative than to seek a public hearing with the PUC. In  the meantime I will hive to  haul water, he concluded.  Comm. Norm McKay later  asked whether council was satisfied it had taken the right  action. He was told that the  PUC had previously recommended an improvement in the  water situation be sought, since  then drills had been carried  out, a survey made and improvements instituted, all .at  considerable   expense.

They include all the personal work done yy members of the various health professions and all clonic, hospital and related facilities.  The Royal Commission on  "Health"Services' reported: "the  problem facing the Canadian  ���people is not solely the financing of physician services, but  the full range of essential services���mental, medical, dental,  hospital, pharmaceutical, nursing, prosthetic, home care and  optical."  For every physician today  there are many other members  of the health team. It has been  estimated that out of every 100  people in the health field, 89  are not physicians. The contribution of the physician was  discussed in the Monthly Letter of February, and special attention was given to mental  health services in August 1964.  This Letter has to do with  the thousands of people and  hundreds of agencies who contribute'in van^^activities7 hot  all of them professional, but  all ministering to the general  purpose of the healing arts:  preventing and relieving disease and pain.

Macklin . . .  This organization was originally started in Roberts Creek  but has branched out to include the whole area from Gibsons to Halfmoon Bay. The annual meeting is to be held on  Friday, March 25 in the Roberts-Greek , Hall and to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary, $25 in silver dollars  -is to be given as a door prize.  It would be very gratifying to  have a full turn out of members. ,  To, finish the centennial project, begun last year, the committee has now arranged to  have the grounds levelled and  planted to grass, with a guardrail along the property line op  . the Lower Road. Shrubs will be  added in the fall, when it is  felt they will get a better start  than, if planted now. Also the  parking space in front' of the  building is to be hlacktopped  and the grounds on the previous centennial property are  to be cleared of all. remaining  debris.  There has been no response  to the request for names of  pioneers in the district  However, the committee has  several people in mind, who are  qualified, they are certain, and  these will be contacted in the  next few days, to get' the required statistics to be submitted to the provincial committee.

Arthur Macklin who  can remember names and  dates of events that happened  before the turn of the century  takes pleasure in relating hu-  snow over White Pass between  Skagway and Wlutehorse, made  a raft and poled down the Yukon River for 425 miles to  Dawson City; where he spent  11 years working quite often in  temperatures below 62 degrees  zero.  - Returning to Vancouver in  1912, Mr. Macklin -became a  surveyor   for   the   Vancouver  . f man interest stories and his Ir-   Waterworks Department, retir-  ish   sense   of   humour   shines  through every sentence.  Born in Agincourt, Ontario in  1873, Mr. Macklin moved to  "Vancouver with his parents in  1888. He is the eldest and only  surviving son of his Empire  Loyalist parents who came to  Canada from the Southern United States; there were three  ���"brothers and five sisters In tiie  'family.  . Arthur Macklin attended the  <>nly school in Vancouver at  that time,��� the Oppenheimer  'School on Cordova St. and recalls quite vividly thcsmallpox  epidemic which hit Vancouver  in 1892. Vancouverites blamed  visiting Victoria residents for  introducing the... virus, and all  visiting Victorians were promptly put in quarantine. Enraged outcry from Victoria led to  a mass meeting in the Vancouver Market Hall and the Mayor  was called to Victoria to ' account for this outrage.  In the yehr 1901 Arthur Mac-  ing in 1933. Mr. Macklin mar  ried his wife Norah twenty-five  years ago and ten years later  they retired to their home in  West Sechelt. Mrs. Macklin  passed away in February of  this year.  Visiting Mr. Macklin, as she  has done for many years on  his birthday, was his niece,  Mrs, Joan Pederson of Vancouver. Staying with their brother-in-law, at the present time  are Mr. and Mrs. R. F.

But its chances of passing are about one  in a hundred. Why? Because  the. time allotted for debate is  short. If the speeches go on  -pas* 7 p.m. it is said to be  "talked out." It drops to the  bottom of a long list of Bills  each of which comes up for  discussion in its turn.  Private Members' Bills, while  they rarely become law, are  still important. They indicate  what individual MPs are thinking. They also test public opinion. Those for which there is  widespread support also catch  the eye,of the government. The  government, with more time  for debate, can put its own.  arid often much improved Bill;  through the Commons.     ,  There are no less than 115  Private Members' Bills on the  Order Paper. They deal with  a great variety of subjects-  ranging from divorce to family  planning and from government  support for the price of hogs  to a limit on the amount of  money that can be spent at  election time.  .  Ojie bill would give a hou..e*  wife 72 hours in which to  change her mind after she had,  accepted a set of encyclopedia  or a cupboard of dishes from  a door-to-door salesman. Another would limit the circumstances under which wire tap^  ping is permissible. A third  would retire Members ot Par-  Uajrhcnt at 75, Many of these  arc good ideas. However, the  exact form of tho bill or its  effect in practice m. y bo such  as to disqualify it in its original form.  '"'''���"    ���'���'  Many arc complex. A few are  relatively straight forward. Recently o simple bill changed the  name of Trans Ctuiada Airlines  to Air Canada. It passed all  three readings within the hour  and became law. Please note,  however, that these bills cannot involve the government, directly, in the expenditure of  money. Any Private Members'  Bill which affects the budget is  out of order.  Often bills deal with the same  subject matter. Frequently  these are grouped together and  sent to a Standing Committee  of the Commons. There they  arc written into a! single bill.  Experts can also be called and  the committee members can  make further changes. Our divorce bills are being drafted  in this way. So better legislation will come back to the Com-  contribiited a tremendous  amount of work, cleaning,  scrubbing and washing down  used show cases and painting  one large case.  Len Allen and D. G. Poole  erected the 30-foot canoe so  that visitors may walk beneath it. Karen and Virginia  Alsager applied the finishing  touches by arranging articles  with cards attached for display.  Members of Gibsons Municipal Council have been extended  an invitation to be first to view  the museum.  Itt is also possible that in  early April, the Howe Sound  Women's Institute will host  some 100 ladies representing  Women's Institutes from Vancouver   Island,    Mission   City  articles lor the museum and  the desire of the present executive is that all residents work  together to promote development of a task well begun.

Their  subject matter is often important. If there is widespread  public support it will�� be dealt  with in one way or another.  Parliament may be slow to act  and individual Members of  Parliament may not get all the  ci'edit; that is their due. But If  a bill generates enough Interest in the House of Commons  the private Member of ParUa-'  ment can make laws with  every bit as much effect as the  Cabinet can,  visitors will also be invited-to  view the new museum.  MUSEUM   BACKGROUND  In past years when Mr. Les  ��� Peterson, founder and Pri-si.  dent of the museum, was compiling material for his book,  "The Gibsons Landing Story,"  he was shown many poss2s-  sions of local pioneers. The  thought of a future museum for  Gibsons then originated, for  while the written word preserved for future generations the  history of the area, the museum would portray in a more  realistic manner an Intimate  insight, into the past.

Before proceeding "further, "it  was agreed to await a reply to  a letter sent to the Minister of  Municipal Affairs, Dan Campbell.

In the face of these  developments many of the features of traditional Indian culture are going to appear saner and more attractive.  Confronted with predictions  of this sort, it would seem both  wise and timely for the white  community to ask itself questions such as these:  Before Columbus,  what  sort,  people   lived   hero?   Who   inhabited these continents?  Men  who worked hard but went to  no job; who were purposefully  active   but   never   employed;  who iriade  adequate  provision  but earned no money���and having no money, accumulated (by  white standards) no possessions  ���Where did they  find meaning   in  life?   What   motivated  them? What goals? What purpose?   How   could   they   have  been so lacking in industry as  never to have fought back the  forest and cleared the land for  erosion? How could they have  been so delinquent in initiative  as never^to have possessed the  land and �� divided it into fenced  properties so that a  civilized  basis might have been established for communal and inter-  communal   conflict   in   perpetuity?   How   could   they  have  been so blind as to invest their  energies  in an endless round  of  ritualistic   ceremonials   rather than to the object of converting all of the,chemistry of  Nature into more and more In-  dians; an^jmbre and^m��rc gadgets and gismos for more and  more Indians? How could they  :': have'"'beeh^: so,"'',haive';''in::!'; their  relation to environment as to  have rendered only that Which  they could use into necessities'/  rather  than that \yhlch could;  be seized into personal wealth?  How could they have b?en content .'to''".*live in nature rather  thnn   manage   her���as   if,   indeed,   they   belonged   to   the  earth instead of the earth to  them?     Th i.      interrogation  (which drives to the depths of  anthropology  and,   indeed,   indicates the  cause ., of cultural  variations,  can only  be satisfied with psychological insights  Into the  growth of consciousness) is equally appropriate to  the   investigation   of   early  European tribal cultures. The  American example has the advantage   of   historical   proximity, but tho disadvantage (to  whites)   of   racial   dlsnssocla-  .tion.  7 It;: |s, true ty_t: these, questions arc flavored with gall.  Hut they are not sarcastic. In  composite they.define the proposition that In matters pertaining to communal values,  fiuch an lands, water, atmo-  .phuro and tho human resource  Itself, public intcront had bet-  lor prevail over tho Individual-  |stic*cloim>��-an(l^oKOce^trio����do��  .Ires of speculators, buHlnenfr  . i.operators and other organic  iicomp liters, Those of tho white  community, who choose to, confront such quofitlpn as these;  who try to find answers to  thorn, hono.Uy nnd without  anger, will discover flrlst hull-  cations of the only Way out of  .ho cybernation lmw .< Beyond 'thin, thoy may ho rewarded with a ��l��wnlnn appreciation of tho Indian view of  is now achieving an intellectual  appreciation of the relatedness  of all of life, which it has  named ecology, the Indian has  never lost bis emotional-realization-identification, his intuitive knowing of the same thing.  To him, the planetary environment has always been permeated with a certain indefinable  but valued quality. To him,  wealth has always been inherent in the planet (self) and one  can be wealthy only in one's  experience and recognition of  quality, never in one's possession of quantity. Except to the  very expedient and the very  blind, wealth can never be in  the wallet or the bank. The  dollar represents the attempt  of an objectively isolated and  commercial society which has  communion) to a filthy habit and  major threat to public health.  By the commercial process,  land is reduced to real estate  and from thence, to money. All  things above, upon and under  the land suffer the same reduction. Religion declines from a  transcendantai awareness of  life to a pay-as-you-go salvation  from life. Spontaneous behavior, become suspect, falls prey  to authoritarian conduct-control and results in a grotesque  display of fashionable mannerisms " and phoney posturings.  Education declines from an institutional faith in, and encouragement of, human potential to  a systematic and calculated exploitation of ability and ingenuity. Puppet-likei the human  impetus to growth is jerked up  or slammed down on the mani  management and practical, eco-_  nomy. j'  Yet those things which are  universally recognized as being, (in some quite irrational  and indescribable way) of supreme value, can never be assayed by this criterion. What,  for example, is a Beethoven  Quartet ,'worth?" How much  fora.Sphinx? What is the going price for a Shakespeare  play? Who would care . to undertake tiie dollar evaluation of  Lincoln's Gettysburg address?  Let .those who regard the  above remarks as irrelevant  and facetious remember that  what is under discussion here  is the-traditional Indian, concept of value. As an accommodation to those who find it difficult to think in any but com  mercial terms, it is . possible  to move, a step away from tb��  .'merely?' .esthetic, concept bj.

Prostitution becomes the order  of the day, intellectually, biologically and phychologically.

This was done by Mr. Frank  Parker arid it makes me vipry  sad because I think Mr. Parker is a scholar and a gentleman, even if he can't read,  and on looking his letter over  .again I don't think he can  write either or he wouldn't  have wasted his time on a two  watt dim bulb like.myself.  It was subtly suggested that  instead of "wandering hopefully" around Sechelt seeking  information that I should have  gotten the "facts" from that  "nice West Sechelt lady." This  is all wrong. I don't want "official facts." Just so there should  be no misunderstanding let me  clarify the position of a columnist. There are several kinds  of columnists, mostly idiots  who set themselves up as  authorities on every known subject. Some of them specialize  and become ^journalists which  is nothing more than a tired  reporter with bunions. Then  there are the "fact finding"  columnists who generally get  so mixed up they don't know  which isr fact or which! is mad  dreaming. In my type of scribbling I am not particular  about "facts" because when  one starts using the said  "facts" it is necessary to take  sides and, ^  merely listen to other people's  opinions, and jot them down  and I don't care a tinker';,  hoot whether they are right or  wrong, it is what they say and  what a" lot of them are saying  right now about Bylaw 17  istft good. "Can't afford it".  Too highhanded." "Ridiculous," are a few of the things  they say.  In addition to being a gentle-  man and a scholar, _ Mr. Parker is also a very brave man;  you have to be if you are going  to insinuate that the potential  water users are a set of crooks  and shnooks who won't pay for  anything. When you c o m e  right out in public and say so  by means of a bylaw you are  in great danger of being clobbered by an irate citizen who  has never paid for anything in  100 Fishing Rods and  Reels.

In any case, Mr. Parker  says the thing must be. right  because Victoria approves of  it. This is indeed startling news  because//so? 4ar,-according to-  Mr. i Ray Perrault, leader of  the remnants of: the Liberal  party and Mr. Strachati, leader of the NDPs, or something,  nothing the present government approves of is ever right,  not even if they all resigned  tomorrow.  Mr. Parker says he yas  "shocked," or was , it me?,  about the quarterly ; payment  in advance and says that if I  examine my bill from the Sechelt Waterworks I will find  the same terms there. Always  a seeker of "facts," Mr. Parker and the Sechelt Waterworks  will be shocked too when they  find that I have been dipping  into their water for free because to date I have never received a bill from the Sechelt  Waterworks. Maybe this is on  account of getting one fromrthe  Davis Bay Waterworks instead  which again confirms my statement we here are on the forgotten strip. Nobody knows  where we live; not even we  who live here so it is not surprising that Mr: Paricet doesn't  either. I  I am indeed surprised to  learn that the West Sech'jlt  Water Board is expected to pay  for water one year in advance  but I fail to see how it is a  problem that will keep me busy  figuring out how this is going  to be done when all the money  is used up putting in the pipe  line.  This is the exclusive domain  of the trustees and should have  been given serious consideration at the start. No competent business man would even  think of starting a venture  without being financed to operate at a loss for at least one  year. Very few have been  known to start up and pay their  way at once. If it was expected  that everyone, on the line  would jump right in and pay  the charges at once there was  a sad miscalculation somewhere. Things don't work out  that way here or anywhere  else. There are always those  among us with the "Let George  do it" attitude. They are willing, even eager to accept all  of the benefits but they don't  want any of the responsibilities. ���        ,  I thought I had made it perfectly clear in my column that  summer "campers," as they  are called are really semi-residents,  and  all others  owning  property   on   the   water   line  should be 'taxed whether they  like it or>not. With aft ampie  *., supply of good water 'delivered  right to the door their property has increased in value m  more ways than one' and it is  only fair that they should take  their share of the financial bur-*  den.  I think I also made it perfectly clear in my column that  much credit is due to those  who worked so long, so hard  and unselfishly to get water to  West Sechelt, in fact I said a  lot of complimentary things1  about these people which Mr.  Parker overlooked in his burning haste to exhibit his resentment about my criticism of Bylaw 17. I make no-apology for  the criticism and to his everlasting credit, and perhaps surprise, Mr. Parker has confirmed everything I said. For  this I thank him.  There are tough times ahead  for the West Sechelt Water  Board but those people who  brought it into being will undoubtedly find a way to overcome them. They have.'the w.-  ter line and that is the most  important thing for the moment. There is no reason for  the Sechelt Waterworks to get  waxy about a year's payment  in advance. It doesn't cost them  any more to turn on a valve  and supply West Sechelt with  Water than it did before. They  ,.eget . .t_._rith. ,]^  effort and it ''"would' 'tie interesting to know what they are  paying for somebody else's  water in the first place. No  pumping stations are needed  and the only expenses are for  maintenance., It .would, work-no  hardship on them to go along  with West Sechelt for a year or  two by making only a token  charge until the new venture  is on a self-sustaining basis.  This may take some time but  sooner or later the present  West Sechelt areai will be part  of the village, f  The West Sechelt water line  will bring more permanent  residents to the place and Sechelt will benefit accordingly.  The money "lost" by helping  West Sechelt during the hard  start will be money recovered  later. How many are looking  that far ahead? All of us  should.

Since coming to the district  in January of 1963, CpL Nelson  has been extremely active in  community affairs, especially  where young people were concerned As district commissioner of the scouting movement,  he devoted much of his free  time to scout and leadership  training.  Many organizations have  benefitted from his experience  and knowledge, for whenever  possible he has attended panel  discussions or addressed groups  of people interested in the  problems which face teenagers,  Cpl. Nelson will be missed  by the Sechelt Indian Council,  for he has worked closely with  the councillors, helping to cre  ate a better understanding between* the white and / Indian :so��  cieties.  Not only will Sechelt be losing a law enforcement officer  at the end of the month but  also a fire marshal!, deputy  registrat of births, deaths and  marriages and an issuer of  trade and dog licences; for.Cpl.  Nelson was appointed to aU  these positions. ���  Mrs. Beverley Nelson who Is  an accomplished pianist will  also be missed in" the district  for besides participating in  many fund raising activities,  she has also been an active  member of the Sechelt Hospital Auxiliary.

In the effort to get Members for the St. Mary's Hospital Society, there arc  four basic reasons for people joining.  6ne is to have a Society with membership that'represents the entire Sunshine Coast Area, so that nobody can ever say the Hospital is run by a group  representing any particular area.We want the interest of responsible citizens, all  the way from Port Mellon to Egrnont. 7  The second is that from such a wide membership, the Society n,embcrs will  have a far bigger number of responsible people from whom to elect the members  of the Hospital Society Board of Trustees; ,     '  And third, that there will be a Society of widely representative members who  should and conic! discuss ALL thc problems related to hospitalization of our  residents. For instance, such a Society should discuss the big problem of Continuing Care in a Unit .separate from the present acute general hospital,  Fourthly, any Society needs money with which to carry out its programme,  A minimum membership of 1000 shOuld be the goal and this would give the  Society $2000.00 working funds.
