that it cost $60 to mow the park.' .The*
o question of parks cropped up ^af tep' the
' formation of standing committees when
commissioners Ray Clarke -and Morgan
Thompson wanted to. know why parks and
recreation were under two different committees.
Mr. Rgyner explained that parks actually came under public works but activities
carried out in the park were classified as
,    Chairman Bill Swain named Commissioner Adele de Lange, deputy chairman
of finances, licences and centennial com-*
mittee;. Comm.   Louis' Hansen,   building,
fire protection, health, sanitation, regional
, district, and airport hyanaj|ment committee;. ;Ctomm;   Morgani'*||irnpson,   public
workfe including^ roadsKpj|^ teaches andr
airport  management- .''gojnmittee;'  Comm.
. Bay Clarke, f recreatioiJi community services,   library   board   fjad   water  board;
Comms. Clarke and" Thompson to collaborate on recreation comrhittee.
Chairman Bill"Swain warned commissioners that they would he approached with
a variety of compUints during their terms
of office. Bestjpolicy to adopt is to recommend that all complaints be presented in
writing to the village clerk, except of
course, in an emergency."
Approval was given a motion made by
Comm. Hansen and seconded by Comm. "
' Thompson that copies of minutes be dispatched as soon as possible after a meet-.
' ing, to members of the village commission
and the press. Previous procedure had
been to present copies of minutes to members of the village, commission only, for
perusal just before the meeting. Mr. Han-
- sen felt that this did not give enough time
to study them properly.
Mr. Rayner read copies of correspohd-
-e'nee which had been held over for consideration of the new commission. He advised* that decisions not be reached immediately to give new members time to con-
 sidcr the situation., ,...; ,,.. „„,    ...
A letter from the minister of municipal affairs stated that as a result of the
recent poll, he was not prepared to advance letters .patent authorizing extension
of the village boundaries, to the Jieuteh-
aril-governor.    „ '    ■   ' ,
Held over for consideration was request
from airport management committee that
the grant be increased to $1,250 this year.
Gibsons Village Commission has allotted
$1,260 in its provisional budget for 1967.
The request arrived too late for considera-
, tion In Sei(^^^o«^ion^3|uo^eX J .'-.'.! I
Fate of the old village office is still mi-
decided but following an offer to buy the-
building if it is for sale, Chairman Bill
. - Swain reminded commissioners of the historical value of the building which wis the
first telephone office, first bank and first
municipal office in Secheit. Village commis.
sion is still awaiting the arrival of ah advi-
sor from the museums dept,, Victoria to
study its suitability as a museum.
Comm, Hansen observed that it may be
suitable" for a museum today but what
state would it be in by the time they were
ready to start one,
Chairman   Bill   Swain   remarked   that
LIpNS OFFER x ••   i -
< " Sunshine Coast Lions Club his offered
to organize May Day on condition that the
village help financially. Comm. Thompson
felt that as it cost^the village money anyway ^there was no reason why* "a grant
should not be given equal to the amount
usually - spent which " Mr. Ilayner said
averaged between $3004400 eacVyear. The,
chairman observed that although it had'
always been a headache, he was reluctant
that council should lose command of it.
Advising against making a decision at
the firpt meeting, Mr. Rayner reminded
commissioners that the recreation commission usually sponsored May Day. Lastryear
toe-commission.informed council that it had
ceased * to -function, but ,the? bylay was still

Trying to fill  this  space after the  . festive season is like making a glamor girl -  out of a 22-42-'23-M>akes a lot of doing. ,  They keep telling me that nothing happened around here during our absence,  but Stan Silvey's fishboat needs major re-,  pairs after being rammed at the dock by  another boat that sort of went off the  beaten' path during Christmas celebrations.  And who was it that got a clunking when  he mistook ten feet of open water for the  float and blithely stepped over the side  with a tieup rope in his hand?  There was also -the day when Bruce1  Silvey's Jessie Island III caused a flurry  of excitement when she started to sink at,  Bathgate's gas-dock, and the pumping and  bucket brigade refloated * her and made  temporary repairs. More serious Was the  fact that Bruce had to be. rushed to St.  Mary's twice in the same day; the latter  trip resulting in a stay of two or three  days Mm a reported high blood pressure  conditiph that was no doubt triggered off  by the near sinking of his boat. And nothing happened m Egmont over the holidays?  , ���.  Hospital inmates at the present time  are 'Sniper Bill' Hodgson and next door  neighbor Tony Saulnier. 'Sniper Bill* has  been in St. Mary's for the past couple of  weeks and Tony is presently in Shaughnes-  sy Hospital from January 4th. It is hoped  that both will be out and About in the  near future. :  Still on the hospital hit, Mrs. Helen  Bathgate .rgally. did things,ftip right during '  "'the recent'i^s^fei^easbn. 'No staying home  andJ shaving'*'Wer .turkey dinner preparations and.'���the^washing of heaps of dirty  dishes ^fte'r a Christmas' dinner for this  gal this'year. Helen timed it right, spent  Christmas in St. Paul's Hospital and was  an inmate of St. Mary's for New Years.  She is now at home in Egmont and well  on the road to recovery after her Decern-,  ���ber 20 session with  a  sharp scalpel.  And did you hear of the sad state of  affairs with. Helen's husband Jack on the  eve of New Years celebrations? Seems  that our hero, aftier leaving Helen at -St:  Mary's, visited Sechelt's Inlet Avenue  'cash and carry' store, purchased refresh-  - ( ments, stowed them carefully in the car  ; trunk so as to avoid any misunderstanding  if stopped in one of Corporal Deevey's  RCMP .rOad blocks and headed for Egmont. Very early hexi morning Jack's brother Bob loaded wife Mae and daughters  Pat and Debbie into the car and headed  out/for a New Year's holiday, in Vancou-  ������ ver, Jack's bottles still safe and sound���  and still in the trunk.  Are you kidding? Of course Bob had a  Happy  New Year.  Christmas morning brought a 4-way international'telephone hook-up over our local  line. The long distance call, originating  in Egmont and pre-planned by Gene Berri-  tzen resulted in Gene, his brother Andy in  ���"Vancouver, another brother; * ErlingV in  England, and sister Sylvia in-Norway engaged on fhe-4-way conversation. Gene  heard the European transmissions plainly  at^all times but evidently could not be  heard, by the overseas callers. until eventually Norway left the hook-up. It appear-,  ed to be lack of transmitting power from  Egmont when the four ' stations were-oh  t<he line, as Gene's subsequent connection  with England vvas excellent, after Norway  went off. ,  It was quite a thrill for the four concerned to talk with, one another and a nice  way for Gene to exchange season's greetings with a brother and sister whom he  had not seen for 35, and 15 years respectively. '  Mrs, Myrtle, Dalton has returned from,  an .extepded trip to Sacramento, Cal.,  , where sh$ spent Christmas and New Years  with , her 'daughter and son-in-law, Jean-  ,ett�� and, Bill Hoover and family, well-,  known to this district. The family re-union  was completed with; tho arrival homo pf  Bill and Jeanette's "two oldest sons, Bill  Jr.- and Bob, both regulars In the U,S: Arm  ed Forces. Bill Jr., ah army captain, had  just completed 14V^ months .combat Wy  in Vietnam, while Bob, in the navy, had  finished his second tour uVihe same area. '  3ill Jr.' is now posted for instructional-duties in the U.S.A. -for, a time a"nd Bob is  slated to return to destroyer duty in Vietnam waters.  Myrtle's is a service -family all down  the line, s-i-1 Bill Hoover himself being ,a.  former professional soldier, retiring from  the U.S. Army with the rank of iieiitenant-  colonel a, few years ago.  'The guys next door\ Ruby and Oliver .  Larson, had daughter Trudi, her husband  Jack Gulhman and wee grandson Stanley  up for Njew Years. Danny Griffith, down '  from Prihce George; Peter West, Ifeith  Griffith and Ken Jeffries were other Jiave-1  left-Egmqnters who were home for' the  holidays and a little of Mum's good cooking. Janet and Oscar Nukka came up from  Cottage .Grove, Ore,, for the festivities.  Janet intends to stay" around home for a  whije but Oscar has returned to look after  his mining duties in Oregon.  Another local resident now working in  Powell River made it down for New Years  but-had trouble  in  getting  back to *is  mill job for January 3rd. Jimmy Vlfaliace,  along with hundreds of other Pdwell B>iv-  erites, had a long wait for the Earl's fcove  ferry on  Monday   evening.   Out,  sand  in  line for the 6:30. p.m. trip to Saltery Bay,  Jimmy didn't make it. He also figured that  he- would not  make the  8:30  either,  so  wheeled out of- line and came back to his  Egmont home. He tried again for the 10:30  p.m. and was'the 76th car in line an hour  before the sailing. Not a hope of that One  either, so back in to Egmont again, this  time to pick up a sleeping bag and return  to  line up once   more.  Never did  hear  what  time he  got to  Powell  River,  but  as the ferry people said they would run  all night if necessary, I suppose he event-  . ually arrived.  A line up of cars extending for almost  a mile to the Egmont road cut-off is bad  enough, but the safety factor- caused by  such a line up on a single lane highway  is  another  matter.

He pointed  last regular meeting,  offered a number out tfrat tii is (the desire ot,this council  of what he'called "directive suggestions." that>the' Municipality of Gibsons Landing  ,   Referririg.to a decision made in 198$'to retains'its present restricted are^a, 1Jien.it  hire the services oTMartin J.

He suggested  ,water survey _at a cost of $9QQ, the chairman stated "already this municipality has  paid out a great deal of taxpayers money  ^relative to the sources of .water supply;  the engineer's report considers the following sources  of supply;  Langdale  Creejc,  # Chaster Creek, watershed of Chaster Creek,  Roberts Creek, Chapman Creek, and' a  number of other sources of water which  were considered but are not discussed because of their inadequate si*�� or adverse  location.  "This is as it should be, nevertheless.  This water survey -made by Engineer Martin J. Dayton has been made in such manner that many bf these districts can get full  information and benefit without cost, which  I think you will agree does not appear to  be justifiable from the taxpayer's point of  view.*'  Obviously in respect to some reluctance  on the part of past couhcil to go into large,  possibly- uneconomical, expansion projects  at the present time, the chairman expres-  i  ���4  such cost vrould appear to be out of -all  proportion io other municipalities, V-  WWJe> boundary extension has previously been ^bought at��put as being in a ncfth-  ferjy direction; Mr, Hodgson stressed the  advantages of any town, village "or municipality Ideated on waterfront.' This applies  particularly,' to, Cflbsbns which is so geographically situated that serious tho'ughl  should be given by council to westerly extension, thereby having a marihe drive  taking in flowler Point and continuing as  a marihe drive* to the Peninsula.  Dwelling ^briefly on municipal office  hours, he said the question will have to be  discussed and a decision made relative to  this matter. He said "I can assure you  that I could not keep track of the calls received* in this connection.''  The chairman concluded by advising  that his comments were directive suggestions not decisions, for decisions in this  council are made by ^a majority vote of  the council as a whole.

As a country you have come a long way  since your conception ?nd you have learned  a lot. Unfortunately, in the fields of conservation, pollution:, parks and outdoor  recreation we, your residents, haven't  shown too much (foresight.  �� Conservation of the game which abounds  in great numbers across' your land,  admittedly not as inuch as there was when  you were born, is,a relatively simple thing.  It boils down to the fact that if we preserve  the animals" natural habitat they will 'be  around to 'welcome in,your next one hundred years. Of course/ I realize, Canada,  that your biggest problem in conservation  is not the animals or the fish but the people  who inhabit your land. I know you hated  to see the unnecessary slaughter of buffalo  on your great plains and I know it pains  you to watch the decline of chum salmon  here, on the coast, but Lhope we are, learning. Perhaps in the next. 100.years^we will-  not take trees -from1 your 'soil inais'efiini-  nateiy    and  . destroy ���   the    .watersheds, /  streams, lakes and your nurseries for your  many salmon. I hope so.  Canada,    your    wonderful   economic  growth over the past~ century ^has brought  with it something that was forseen but was  cot controlled-very well���pollution. I know,  Canada,, ..that  without, the Sslarge^niines,,,  smelters, factories, and mills yqu wouldn't.  be the country you are today but don't  you  think  we  cbuhl "have  adopted   some  preventative-measures' in regards to poHu-'  tion? I know, ���Cahadar that- you - long for "  the clean; fresh air-that once covered your  ....land.-.-, from- .^coajskto^ coast,*^instead, of.. the  ^stagnant haze* covering your cities  now.  Take hope' tfcoughj Canada^ we are trying  to do something about it. One big step we,  your residents, 'have" taken is ih\giving that  poisonous gas: that we' are now breathing a  name. We caitt itsrttog!  The millions and millions of tons of fish  and vvildliferpoisoh^that we pour into your  once clear rivers,. .lakes and seas every  day has a name also. We call that effluent. I know, Canada, that you detest seeing  it but it isj a slotj cheaper to get rid of it  in, this^ manner jiaja^t^in^, to^ clean it ;��p.:  j wonder what you.think of us, ^Canada,  when we have, advanced in the scientific  field to-where we .will land a man on the  moon in .a few; ;years but haven't the  knowledge on- how to control industries' '  garbage. A bit ironic isn't it? ,.  Canada, you have .millions of acres of  wonderful, park lands  and we  are doing  our best to keep^ them .for our^ future geri-  eratibns. in tnis fielcl we seem to be pro-'  g're'ssihg along with- you, especially here in  your  most  westerly province.  You  have  given us s6me''of "trie most scenic arid enjoyable country in the world and honestly,  Canada, we, 'do ''appreciate it even if we'  can't see the forest'for the trees. We, your  residerits,' haVe set"' apidei portions of your  more enjoyable' land for parks,,.ijfow if we  could only keep a certain MLA's' hands off  them arid stop them being^ turned into mine  sites, air strips and logging claims . . . !  Canada, I do riot know what the future  holds for you in the next 100 years. I hope  that in tho year ,2067 -that there are still,  forests to walk in,- streams to fish in, lakes  to^wim in and air to breathe. I, know that  this is your earnest wish too and perhaps  with our help it will come true. ,  Happy birthday, Canada. I am very  grateful to be one of your residents. Yes  Canada, this residentis proud to' say that,  he is a Canadian so I - say once again,  bonne fete mon Canada,    .     ,  Keep that lino in the water and Pll see  you next week. :  ���by Eve Moscrlp  STAR BOWLERS for Nov.-Dec were til  McCourt, of Ladies' League and Reg  Thomas of Secheit Commercial.

Peninsula Tirhes     *    Wednesday, Jopuary T1, T967  Mercenaries Shout Loud  GENERAL opinion is that formation ol  a regional district will herald a progressive step in' the right direction for  the Peninsula although we ail realize that  in one .-way and another most of the  fimctions .involved will have to be paid  for.  We get nothing for nothing and it is  faiily obvious that any benefits derived  /from die formation will quite naturally  only come from oar pockets. Neverthe^  less, projects such as garbage pick-up,-  planning and building control are essential if the district is to grow in an orderly  sensible manner.  Close to the*, top of the list of projects is thai of planning and indeed an  extremely important one. Too many  communities and districts have growjv  around a cluster of shacks and smi^lf  ' businesses which have, in time, posed  as eyesore the village council has been  unable to remove, simply because they  we^e permitted when no, planning by-laws  were in force.  Naturally there are those who for personal reasons oppose orderly planning on  the grounds that they feel they should  be^ permitted to erect whatever eyesore  they choose on their property. In many  cases, this is simply a pious excuse to  cover the fact they have rather more mercenary reasons at stake.  One such example occurred last week  when a local man suddenly decided residents of his particular neighbourhood  should take a second look at the regional  district. His reasons being the anticipated  increase in taxes.  ;Pin1iier discussion revealed "the fact  that he owns a considerable acreage upon  which a number of cheap and in most'  cases, summer homes will be built. He ad  mitted they would not pass, .juicier the  building code but felt'this was perfectly  justified for we are still a pioneer country.  This is the type of clap-trajj which  has created slums and put money into the  pocket of mercenaries. Past experience  has shown that almost invariably, those,  who shout most when communities seek  to progress, are those with financial in-,  vestments which they prefer to keep to  themselves. That the future of the  majority, including our young people  should be jeopardized, is of no concern  to these people. As long as they can reap  a fast buck, to heck with everyone else.  In the case in question, this person  had the afrontary to state he was only  concerned wi|h selling low priced property to those who could not afford high  prices to build elaborate homes. He was  in fact some kind of modern benefactor.  A little -quizing revealed the fact that  the cheap lots were selling between $800  and $900. Back from the waterfront but  sufficiently close for most of his customers  who, he admitted, were largely Vancouver  business people seeking to build cheap  summer homes. Needless to say the same  people who would oppose any progress  on the Peninsula which might add to their  taxes.  * The regional district is now virtually  fact. It was discussed over a long period,  finally approved .by a representative  committee, advertised for two consecutive  weeks and a month given in which those  opposed could register their objection to  Victoria.  Little can now be done and it is  hoped that not too many will be duped  by the fast talk of a few, as has been  evidenced in the past, a little thought and  investigation will in most cases reveal  ulterior motives at work.

On the second page there  are these words. "Jack Davis will work  for . . . Federal participation in financing  of '.second crossing at lions Gate."  To saggest that it be.done by means  <�� tails is quite a way of fulfilling this  promise.       ,  'However, the second item that caught  my eye is the following: Jack Davis will  vrazft for: ABDA assistance for Secheit  Peimssaia and Sunshine Coast, In view of  a meeting, I attended at Secheit in June  1365 at winch Mr. Davis made it plain that  a good number of benefits could be derived from ABDA, would you please publish a list of these as over a year has gone  by since the election.  However the following quotation from  the Va^coitver Sun just prior to the' election may prove of interest; "The Fraser  .Valley should take better advantage of  the benefits of ARDA," liberal JJP Jack  Davis said Friday. Davis said there are  opportunities; in the Fraser Valley to develop supplementary industries as well as  agriculture under .ARDA. Davis was admittedly stumped by the question of Chilli-  wrack municipal cerk J. A. Mulford.^Mul-  ford said bis municipality spent $3,��>&" on  an engineering survey for a $250,000 drainage and irrigation program but was told  by the ARDA chairman in Victoria that  the senior^ government's two thirds grant  must be secured by first mortgages on  all private property benefitting from the  scheme.  People just won't put a 20-year mortgage on their land and tic it up for resale  *atd > Mulford. We arc no further ahead  than when wc started and wc have a  $3^89 engineering report wc haven't got  a cent for."  Wben other areas of Canada, similar to  Secheit have derived large benefits from  ABDA it is only reasonable to expect the  Sunshine Coast to do; likewise.

Bay Happenings  MOST OF the 40 people who attended the  Welcome Beach Hall last Saturday went  home with a much clearer picture of the f  Dewline than they ever had before.  Guest speaker Patrick Murphy, with the  aid of two fine films, presented a graphic  -picture of life within the -Arctic Circle. He  is in charge of a Dewline station with a  staff-ofjj25, including technicians, mechanics, supply specialists, a cook and two  Eskimo families. During his 10 years in  the Arctic he has seen many changes and  tremendous development.  In the early days it would sometimes  take three months even to get mail out of  the station. Now there are two mails a  week and a communication system that  circumnavigates the whole world.  With such developments going on in their  territoriesr the Eskimos are also changing. Once numbering more than 100,000,  there are now probably only 35,000 of them.  They are inveterate gamblers and a man  will sometimes lose everything he owns  in a night's gambling. Many of them are  employed by Norad or the Electric Corporation .and live in houses which tBey rent.  Soon the igloo will be a thing of the past.  Modern schools are berig built and within  15 years, the Eskimos should be completely literate.  The first film, Dewline Annual Sealift,  illustrates the vastness and comprehensiveness of the system which starts into action compiling orders 12 months ahead  of the actual sealift.  Tremendous preparation- and careful-  supervision is needed to ensure supplies  from all over the world arriving by -the  scheduled time for * shipment While the  organization for the sealift is going ahead  on the outside, there is much activity on  the Dewline stations preparing for its reception. Much of the work can only be done  during the short arctic summer whose peak  is' during July and August, so spe,ed is,  the vital factor. Everything that can _be  , done to expedite the .unloading and storing  of supplies is <. done Roads are prepared,  'storage'space'made'''available, sign posts  erected and .the beaches made ready for  the, amphibious rollagons and landing ship ,  tanks. Floats must be built of empty oil  drums and the 65,000-gallon tanks checked  and made ready for the bulk deliveries of  POL (petroleum, oil and lubricants) which 1  are piped ashore frorh a tanker.''During the :  operation   of   the   sealift,   reebnnaisance  planes   keep   a   careful  watch   over   the".  movements of the ice, for the ships must be  on their way south before tho ice closes  in again.       ' \  The next movie "Angotee," a National  , Film Board' film, illustrates the story of an  Eskimo boy from hjs birth in an igloo,  through the,years,of his childhood to young,,  manhood. The film shows his training as a  hunter of the mammals which will supply  his family with, food, clothing, light, heat  and weapons,  Canon Alan Greene movqd a vote of  thanks, to Mr, Murphy for a, most interest-,  ing and instructive evening.

Now! the.  lamb  goes a square danci% and Mary  tags along. The lamb knows all the calls  now and really does, belong to the greatest  pastime and hobby jpne to old and modem  songs. There was Darling Nellie Gray and  King of the Road too. The lamb dances  them all, but what does Mary do?- Well,  she sits in a corner all alone as you can  see, because she didn't listen to the calls,  and the instructions that came from me.  Well, the moral of this story is as plain  as can be! If she had listened to the instruction she would have been square  dancing with you and me. .   .  The Secheit Jr. Squares got away to a,  flying start last Friday night with a few  new beginner kids trying their darndest to  catch up to the older dancers, all in one  night, and I must say they did quite well.  We didn't make it down to the Gibsons  Squarenaders dance last Saturday but we  shall be there on the 21st.  The next square dance at the St. Hildas  Hall will be this coming Saturday night  at 8:30 p.m. with the Secheit Promenad-  ers as your hosts, remember the date, Saturday, January 14, 1967.

Boy don't ypji wish Christmas holidays would last longer. Now it's  all pleasant (?) past holiday, I hope*everybody had a great time and now we're already to get back to Work.  The last day at school was a good one.  We had out usual assembly which was  better than ever. First-of all,-Div. 4 put  on-its version of������"The Night Before Christmas." Next on the^ program 'was Brian  Swanson and his accordion, and as usual,  he held everyctoe spellbound. Then the student council, skit, which was great fun;  the teachers' skit entitled "Claus's Pyjamas," the choir with carols, and the Red  Cross draw. Isn't it nice to have such  great teachers? They sure are good sports!  After the assembly was over,-there was a  mixer until the buses came.  This week has been short, but it's getting everybody back to normal.-  Clubs are starting up again. Wednesday  was the Cellar Club and Thursday the  Photography Club. -  Friday morning, the grade 11 and 12  students from Elphie an* Pender Harbor  saw a special showing of Macbeth at the  Secheit Theatre. At-noon they returned to  their schools for afternoon classes.  So much for this week. Say, a little  birdie told me we may -get our report  cards sometime this week.
