Motions were made, amended, tabled  and at one point the meeting adjourned  due to a queried point of procedure.  2E riT.^'^LrfSLK monthly socfqrJ meeting   -'  WIl^ON ��reek Community ^Centre started  tion^,5 b'r maintenance of the facilities shall  form part Qf the^ expenses- of the board. - '  Community Centre plans  a letter be sent to the centennial committee  recommending that a working committee  be formed to operate the swimming pool,  composed of members of the community at  large, a representative from municipal  council and members of the school boart.  That the centennial pool be placed on Gibsons Elementary School grounds adjacent  to the. highway as recommended by the  landscape architect but that construction  does not commence on the pool until funds  are available for development of a new  playing area at Gibsons Elementary  School.  CHANGED  LOCATION  .During , the discussion, trustee Peggy  Voleri stated that she was not aware that  the site of the pool had been- changed from  the undeveloped lower part ,of Gibsons  Elementary School grounds which is par*  tially in the village, to the playing field.  She had heard it rumored but not officially  as a trustee.  She was informed that the landscape  architect.had recommended it. Mrs. Volen  replied that the school bad not sufficient  playing area ndw. Chairman Joe Horvath  observed that the board would be acquiring a $20,000 facility without capital cost  to the board. But Mrs. Volen pointed out  that spending money to develop' a new  playing area could amount to capital cost.  If this cost is placed on the capital budget  it may not be approved by Victoria and  then the school would be without a playing  field.  Trustee Cliff- Thorold told the board  that the centennial committee did have  another site f6r the pool.  Mr. Horvath said that he had attended a  meeting with the centennial committee and  although funds at that time amounted to  _$I0,000 an equal amount was needed be-  fore^co^tr^^  culty was being experienced in raising the  needed capital because the public wanted  reassurance on who would operate the pool  when the centennial committee disbanded.  SCHOOL. ACT  *It was not quoted':'at'"'the^-'scKb^l''"1��ardv  meetings but section 171 of the School Law  states: A board of school trustees may, by  agreement, permit a municipality to construct, and operate facilities for community  use on a school site if: the board is satisfied it will not be necessary to acquire  more land for the site because of the construction, Operation or existence of those  facilities thereon. Operation of the facilities  will not be detrimental to education.

Provincial government's tight money policy regarding school  construction; necessitated'-'the board^:-to;tent  four units this year at a cost of $325 per  month each.

• * ' -\ : ,     ^4*y Mory Tinkley
ON JANUARY 20th, Mrs. Violet .Campbell
~ will celebrate her 81st birthday. She
was born ia Reading, England,, wheret her
father was sales' representative for Huntley arid Palmer, the biscuit manufacturer^.. Her parents, Mr. and Jtfrs... Blake
and their nine children later moved to
Tyneside where they liyed at Newcastle
and'later at §outh Shields.
In 1907, Violet Blake went* to Paris as
an EngUsh speaking teacher to the son of
the well-known Parisian family of' Prin-
vault. She stayed in this post until the
summer of. 1914, by which time she was
a* competent French linguist. After the *de/>
parture of her young charge to a school that
fall, she was to stay in; ^afis as companion- to Madame Prinvault.
_ But * Europe , vyas. tense.. Bosnia, which
had been seized by Austria, was seethuig
with unrest and, when Archduke Francis,
heir to the Austrian throne was assassinated during a visit to Bosnia, this was
the spari which was to kindle the flames
of war throughout Europe. Unaware of the
danger, Violet Blake accompanied Mons.
and'Madame Prinvault to the theatre one-
evening in July to see "The Merry Widow'Y During the performance, a fight
broke out between the crew of a visiting
German Zeppelin and some young Frenchmen. The manager stopped the show and
closed the theatre.
Next morhihg, Miss "Blake was given
her ticket and packed off to England. A-
week later, the Germans marched into
Belgium and war was declared. She realized later that if Mons. Prinvault hadn't
sent her home when he did, she would
probably have spent the five years of the
war in a German internment camp. Instead, she spent them in the South Shields
telephone exchange, working a twelve
hour night shift and thus releasing a man'
for war service. _
With South Shields guarding the. strategic Tynemouth region,, this was a responsible and important job. During the
night shift, no calls ,woro accepted from-
ordinary subscribers, but the whole telephone system was reserved for emergency and war priority calls.'
One night, Miss Blake thought she
heard somebody in the cable room when
she knew nobody should be there. She called the police without delay; they arrived
promptly and caught a German spy red-
handed, busily cutting the lines. Miss
Blake was honored for her vigilance and
prompt action, fpr without it's,communica:
tion system,: Tyneside, so vitally important to Britain's war effort, would have
beeri defenceless against an. attack of invasion. ■ '.'. ,
In 1925, Miss Blake came to Vancouver
to marry Walter Dean whom she had met
while he was serving with the Canadian
army iim England. They lived at Ladner
farm where her husband was employed

time   before   going  on   to   Saskatchewan
-where Mr. Rhodes drove supplies for the
North "West Mounted Police from Battle-

Sir Anthony Musgrave
Governor of moaly countries
ANTHONY Musgrave sailed in a British
warship into Sari Francisco harbor and
carried back to Victoria a captive bride
But she was a captive of the heart and
the only shots fired'were by Saluting guns,
:•• ■%
"■ »'j— ■* ■' n »
because Musgraye. was second governor ol
the united colonies of British Columbia..
Born in 1828 at Antigua in the West Indies, he was the son of a doctor. He entered
the colonial service in early ffl
various West Indies posts, and subsequently became governor of Newfoundland. Sir
John A. MacDonald in 1KI$ "recommended
him to succeed Frederick Seymour (who
had died in office) as governor of BlC.
Prime Minister MacDonald hoped Musgrave would expedite the entrance of
British Columbia into Confederation.
Musgrave had been a widower for 10
years when he came west and after his
appointment, arranged for Jeahnie Lucinda
Field or New York, to cross the continent
by piillinan^ 'palace^ car' and meet him in
** San Francisco for a wedding. Victoria was
gaily decorated for the arrival of the new-
lyweds with flags flying along the route to

AMr' reading ari  board meeting where representatives  Secheit Fire District sought financial support from the board, Bowen Island residents wrongly assumed that the board intended purchasing fire-fighting equipment.

And the woungs  of. numerous wars take time to heal.  .Again the news is good. If the recent  NATO ministerial meeting in Paris is any  indication,   there   will   be   a   country-by-  country,   rapprochement  with  the  Soviet  bloc. NATO's abandonment of the idea of  a  mufli-lateral nuclear force is  a  great  help: It will help to reduce tensions between Hie East and the West more thin  anything else could have done.  A general European Conference, as proposed by the Russians, last spring, may not  be possible. But contacts between individual countries on either side of the Iron  Curtain must be encouraged. France,* of  course, has pulled out of the military operations of NATO. But NATO's 14 remaining  members have closed ranks. They have  regained their sense of purpose. And this,  in turn,: adds to their confidence in dealing separately with their communist  neighbors to the east.  But to get back to nuclear weapons . ,.

The Vancouver paper -referred to a  statement by an ex-trustee who stated "if  I was the press I .wouldn't attend'board  meetings because it's ajl too cut and  dried." He tojd a gathering that too miich  public business is being conducted in  committee sessions, closed to the public.  "If I were a reporter I would boycott the  board's meetings" he added.  This trustee did not reveal anything  new for responsible newsmen throughout  the province are running into this very  same deplorable situation in which elected  representatives, despite previous avowals  to thj-**,contrary, quickly become firm advocates of closed door meetings.  As tBV Powell River News editorial  points out^ never has the public image of  elected representatives been as low as it  is today, and the image holds true no  matter what level of government we observe. '  In all fairness, we on the .'Peninsula  are fortunate that both municipal councils have avoided this pitfall, other publip  bodies however, evidently prefer to  operate under a blanket of secrecy.  This does aot necessarily suggest corruption but rather creates the suspicion  that all is not completely above board.  As the editorial states, "in the defeat of  a recent referendum, one cannot help but  wonder if that defeat was in large measure  '"'Suir tp"'.|fie fact the public wl^ i*tH Icept  fully informed of the developing picture.  Tt pontin*ttes; Once the practice of  closed meetings;/if established^- it spreads  and increases Wke some insidious growth  until the public loses all control.  Uemoetacy was founded on the concept that an informed electorate would  choose informed representatives to make  intelligent decisions on the issues befpre  them. When these representatives take it  upon themselves to bas the door to public  information the whole process of democracy is endangered.  Both public and press have very good  reason to express regret that so many  appointed representatives lack sufficient  courage to stand on their own feet and be  counted. At the same time, it must be  pointed out, the solution lies in the hands  of the voter who instead of apathetically  allowing unsatisfactory people to be returned by acclamation, should seek out  new blood to stand for office..  It is to be remembered, when a group  is-returned to off ice year in-year out by  acclamation, dictatorship and empire  building is inevitable, and both usually  prove a heavy burden to the taxpayer.  Insistence upon closed meetings for much  of which the public is entitled to hear  about, is, in itself, ample indication of  creeping dictatorship.  This sorry situation will only terminate  when the public rises in revolt and makes  clear,theJact, Aat,taxpayers/money is,  not easily come by, it therefore is not  to be frittered away in secret meetings.  Centennial  Servie�� Clialbs Attsieked  AN ill-conceived editorial attack in the  Gibsons newspaper last week would  appear to be directed at service clubs  in general. If the writing is to be dignified  with any attention at all, the finger of  suspicion has been pointed at the operations of any and all service clubs.  The attack in question obviously referred to a suggestion by the Sunshine  Coast I-ions,Club that it assume responsibility, for the annual Secheit May ~ Day  ���Celebration. This was -reported, the:prbr  ;vious week in the Gibsons publicatpn,  committees.        Suddenly, however���if we are to believe the Gibsons oracle���it would appear  that committees simply take part for  monetary. gain. The fact that they turn  their hard-earned proceeds over to the  hospital, to burned-out families, to recreation projects, swim classes, fire protection groups and so on seems to be ignored.  In criticizing service clubs, the Gibsons newspaper seems- to .overlook the  fact mat hot only do members join to  serve, but they P��Py UP n�� srtiaU amount  following discussion oh the proposal by   of persona) funds to do it. There are an  Secheit Village Council.  We are.somewhat awed by the pomposity, of the individual responsible for  this ill-conceived outburst. We have always held���-arid still hold���the opinion  that service clubs are" dedicated to community before self, and we have always  been amazed at the time, the energy, and  the personal funds which these members  pour into their clubs to achieve their  various highly-laudable ends. In/ an, age  ,when so many are content to sit at the  fireside, glued to the gogglebox in the  bosom of their families; it' is heartening  nual membership fees for the privilege  of serving, there are the dinner meetings,  at which each pays his own expenses;  there are inter-club visits, conventions,  and so on^aU at the expense of the individual ntttrjj^r^^^^^^ ^^^  The Gibsons writer seems to have  said either too much or too little. If  he had One ;club in mind, he should have  "named it, although we can understand his  hesitancy at taking on* the largest service  club in the world (20,000 clubs in 150  countries). Jf, he intended to include ALL  service cjubs in the area, he should have  to find citizens devoting time to a weekly   burned his article before it ever got near  rneeting, and days and week-ends to the   the printing press,  puppoh of some current community pro- ,\  P^ZtS 8&St %��?���� Mhwite Messages  goes tp some charitable project.

Januam^at Victoria  on a cross-Canada tour pf (-63 Lcities, and  the Confederation Caravans, visiting more  than 700 communities are, in effect, traveling, teaching . aids. The story of,. Canada  from primeval times, will jinfold. Mforerthe  eyes- of children as, they experience,: by  sight and sound, an adventure, through history. Life-size models, sound effects, -Ttight-  ing, artifacts and photography will enable  children to live through great events since  the pre-ice-age era.  Standing on the timbered deck of a Viking ship at sea or peering through the slit  ,of a sandbagged- trench,in,norman's land  amid the din of batde���such experiences  produce a more lasting impression than  would a film or television program.  Visitors to the exhibits will be in a three  dimensional world which will affect all  their senses. As a good stage presentation  : usually creates a more lasting iinpressibn  than does the two dimensional cinema or  television screen, so will, the Confederation  exhibits influence youngsters.  The exhibits also are likely to develop  a curiosity among children, and adults  too, about the historical background of our  country. A journalist, commenting on a pre-  tour visit to the exhibits, told us that they  ''make you want to head for the library,.;4o  check the why's and wfaen's of certain  developments in Canadian history. I  ��� What, for ^example, .were the underlying  reasons for the Riel rebellion iii: 1��?  Were English laws enforced in Canada |p  to 1931 when the Statute of Westminster  was passed? Were the west coast Indilhs  descendants of early immigrants from  Asia? Questions like* those are.prompted  by a visit to. the train or caravans.       ,  ��� .A Quebec writer visiting the train also  said, "It's like another world to me-rl've .  /.discovered so much about the history of the  west I simply didn't kjnow anything about."  'i The train or car>van (exhibits do not  constitute a complete, history of Canada,  Jh fact there are many gaps. But they do  provide a broad impression.

Department promised to grant approval  at the earliest possible date; last November  the board sought permission to borrow and  expend $7,400 under referendum No. 6 for  the building of Pender Harbour Secondary  School library and equipment. Under  referendum NO- 8 $6,800.00 for Gibsons  .. Landing' site ;^ $2,400.00,,, fpr���, Madeira^Park  site; $500 for equipment at Langdale  School; $600 for school board office equipment and $9,275.00 for architect's fees.  SINKING  FUND  Mr. Wilson stated that the board had  now discovered that debentures issue'd under bylaws 12 and 13 are payable Ion the  sinking fund plan;* the interest' is 5Mf per  cent but the principal does not diminish  during the period of the loan.  According to Section. 226 of the Public  Schools Act: there shall be set aside each  year during the currency of the debentures,  a sum which together with interest ,c6mT  pounded annually thereon at a rate not  exceeding 3Vi per cent per annum, would  be sufficient to proyide a sinking fund for  the repayment in full of the debentures at  the maturity thereof. ;  In the meantime the board is paying  more money than anticipated.

My goodness Rai, you have been gone this  long already yet, seems like yesterday,  anyway that was a terrific night. Even  when our square dancers met at the Mc-  Courts on June 8, 1963 everyone had a good  time,, come-, to .think of it, this wats- the  first time I ever called from an easy chair  and I suggest that all callers try it, man  What a relaxed feeling.  These are just a few of the special  nights to be remembered and I could go  on and on but I must do a cross trail  right abbut here; goi around orie5 and make  a direct line to the Secheit Peninsula  Times office.

His "thumb stabbed at the word 'bagpipe (slV. "An' it's no music, they say?"  . Haggis' temper was rising by the minute.  "If they could read anything except their  pay cheques they would see that pipes are  musical instruments wae drones an' a  canter wi'"* finger-holes, thru' which air  is forced frae a bag held under the arm.  Some o' them at Ottawa should put their  heid under their arm; it would dae mair  guid. " .  "Hae they forgot the heights o' Dargai?  Th�� Fifty Fur-r-rst Hielanders an' their  pipes at Dunkirk an' Alamein? Whit aboot  the pipers leadin' the sodgers ower the top  in the furrst war? An' the relief o' Mafe-  kihg�� an'. Lucknow, ah' the hundreds o'  ither times that the pipes hae won the day?  "If ony o* them bigwigs had ever  marched tae a guid pipe-band they would  ken whit stirrin' feelin' it gies a man. An  noo they hae the cheek tae say that the  skirl o' the pipes isna music. It's anither  Bannockburn there needin' tae teach them  a lesson," and with this parting shot 'Haggis' departed to nurse his wrath.  My thoughts turned to Ottawa and the  pressures that have been building up for  . months against government's apparently  exhorbitant expenditure of the taxpayers'  dollars. A new home for the combined services is in the cards, a multi-million dollar  Pentagon' as it were. The costs already incurred in furthering Mr. Hellyer's battle  ��� for, the integration of our armed forces,  and. more to come. The expense of discarding thousands of uniforms, already  stockpiled, when the new all-service uniform becomes mandatory; It is no wonder  that the defense .departnient's outlay was  Ihelngg^  ment expenditures for the year ended  March 31, 1966, an estimated $1608 milllion  Or 21 per cent of the national budget.  However, the momentous decision to  deny classification as musicians to the  half,.dozen pipers; in the  ing the taxpayer the magnificent sum of  $1,440 a year, has revived our faith in those  who are elected to serve us.  A brilliant financial stroke on the part  of <5ur minister of national defense and bis  advisors. Their annual salaries Of $18,000  plus fringe"benefits and free transportation  .are indeed well earned.--   -  EGMONT EYEDROPS  The Morgans and the Neilsens, our good  neighbors across the inlet, are still away  on their annual Christmas time safari to  Vancouver, Port Moody and all of them  other furrin places.

CANADIAN ~ Medical   Association- advises  that it is unwise and potentially harmful   ���<  for  anyone to pop ��pills indiscriminately  into their mouths. v  Any medication, including the common  pain relievers, may cause undesirable side  effects in certain susceptible individuals  /and the medical community and pharmaceutical industry are becoming increasingly aware of the importance .of these unexpected and undesirable effects,  One factor of concern is that a patient  may be self-treating a potentially serious  illness, which' may be organic or functional *���  and related to- a nervous condition. There  are many people who have complaints  which cannot be explained by an organic  process, but if a person is continually taking medication, he'is doing so for some  reason which should be investigated.  Of course there/ are many people who  have headaches, lot instance, that defy  diagnosis��� these I are eventually labelled  as tension headaches��� but this should be  a diagnosis of exclusion after other important causes have/ been ruled out. The use  of pain relievers in such cases does not  present an important problem of addiction.  Because of present laws a patient has  great difficulty/in getting any drug that is  potentially addicting with repeat prescriptions from a,'physician. The number and  type of drugs now covered in the. Opium  and Narcotic' J>rug Act has greatly increased in the last few years, thus lessening the chance of an individual becoming  0 casually  or*  accidentally  addicted.

FINANCE. Minister Mitchell Sharp stands •
out nowv,as th)fe moit>'brilliant--determm>,
ed member of the federal cabinet, and .Its
most*-kiUul'*p4f^cUti6ner,oi po^erl   '7
His intense1 orthodoxy in finance and in
politics is now the dominating characteristic of the Pearson Government. -     "  -«-
No one, it seems, says nay to Mitch.
The carrot-topped minister'With the engaging face of Harlequin' has his way .with
eyeryghe, including the prime minister.
The   most  recent   proof rof   Mitchell
"• Sharp's  ascendancy was the mini-budget
he presented on December 19. - "
. Six days before CChristmas he increased taxes by, $290,000,000 a year. This almost- brutal action may have been financially justifiable, but ibmust be considered
a political error of the first order.
* Taxpayers, and voters will keep.a long
memory of the Yuletide budget and of Mr.
Sharp's blind rectitude. The wonder is that
the old hands in the cabinet ever permitted
it. That, no doubt, is the measure of Mr.
Sharp's strength- and his ability to have
his way.        \ •
The mini-budget, of course, was in the
Sharp style, which is revealing itself more
each day.   ~
The minister is a didactic, an exponent
of the cause and effect principle in government, a teacher of lessons.
The lesson he was leaching in his mini-
budget is that you don't get anything for
nothing.      & J
The government was embarking on a
$280,000,000 plan to provide guaranteed incomes of $105 a month to old age pensioners. Very well, says Mr. Sharp, Canadians must realize that these benefits must
be paid for. When the cause is a new wel
fare service, the immediate effect must
be felt on the taxpayer's pocket.
It would be foolhardy and irresponsible
to pretend that government services can
be provided for nothing. There must be
few Canadians however-who need remain-
ding that it costs money—their own money
—to run a government.
Even allowing that such lessons need to
be repeated again and again for the benefit of those who are slow to absorb it, there
is little justification for Mr. Sharp's,handling of it this time.-     '
In his hands, the budget became not so
much a lesson as a chastisement of the
^.•■,.-^^.Npt^.only^did--':he>',raise'*v.taxes by the full

Granted,- if there is no other' way to  stop people ruining our beautiful mountain  trail with garbage, then I for one am in  favour. If this organization will bring water to those less fortunate ones who have  land without adequate water, then there  will be many who will approve.    -       !  But if, as you demand, this new regional   district imposed   building  restrictions  such as the unreasonable restrictions now '  in force .in the village of Secheit, then this  would strangulate progress.  Recently a newcomer to Secheit planned on 800 ft. cottage on concrete foundation. He was forced to settle for a 1,000 ft.  cheap prefab on blocks on top of topsoil.  At  this   moment; a family  in, Secheit  with old fashioned one-holer, can't afford'  a septic tank with reinforced concrete top,  while the new village hall needed only a  cedar top.  The majority of property owners (as  proven by recent plebiscite in West Secheit) like to be able to put up a garage^  ;an overnight cabin or a summer cottage  under 1,000 square ft., without having to  buy a permit, submit a blueprint or consult an inspector. Those people with such  future plans had better get cracking with  their buildings before you planning cranks  take over. '-  ALEX SIMPKINS  Disinterested outsider  Editor, Thev Times  Sir���It was with mixed feelings that I  read the editorial in the "Coast Flyer",  erroneously called the Coast News, advising Secheit how to ran May Day.  In the first place, we do not need an  outsider's advice on May Day, particularly  from one who hasn't the slightest personal  interest in the welfare of this area, as he  has frequently shown in the past.  Secondly, I give the people of Secheit  enough credit to make up their own minds  as to the type of celebration they prefer.  ,Thirdly,.,r.toe....writer would., be ^^further  ahlad if he spent more time joolong for  news, instead of handing out advice to another community. He gets quite nostalgic  going back over Sechelt's rural May Days,  and that's just where he fits in, paper and  all. It is now thirteen years since I read  toe first issue and it hasn't changed one  iota, even to  the "Oops Sorry", on the  front page of almost every' issue apologizing for mistakes.      \  >     >  \ ' *',  I do not intend to get into a "controversy  over May Day with this writer, ���who has  hot the' intestinal fortitude to call the lions  by name but'snidely refers .to <tnem as Erosion. .Seeing is" believing and-wherein?  park used1'to be emptied' shortly after the  May Queen was crowned, now it is crowded to 5 and 6 p,m. '  It is true'the Lions rh,ake some,money  on the rides and sideshows but apart from  enough to make payments on, the merry-  go-rounds'(which they have "to pay for)',  toe rest- goes for projects for the betterment, of,the community. Yes-^there were  some* complaints, last year; but was any  event ever put on that ,did not have someone complaining about wmfithing. The  complainers do not have to-patronize the  i rides, it V a free country but the children  that do: enjoy toe rides, far- outweigh' the.  ' others. One man who complained bitterly  about the prices, usually spends his Saturdays drinking beer at 20c a glass for  himself but objects to spending toe same  amount on his children.  Finally, all the Lions money raising  activities -are for some worthy project that  will benefit the community and spread, a  little help and happiness where it is most  needed. They are not looking for pats oh  the back but neither are they looking for  sly insinuations on motives and intents.  Here the writer is skating on thin ice, very  thin indeed, which was why he was afraid  i   i ,������  to mention JthevLions byf namejn the first  place;" as he1,was well aware.he would  leave himself open for a liber suit.  ��� Many of the, phrases used j&- &�� edit'  orial'are very familiar to me and I realize  that some of the'bullets were ma"de right  here in Secheit,- vto be fired from a safe  distance, by a,' third person but without  their 'maker's name on them. How low can  people get..  v     - MF. ?. PARKER  Open letter  Editor, The Times:  Sir���I address this letter to all members of the general public and Mr. H. Hill  in particular.  \  As a real estate developer and a citizen much interested in promoting toe welfare of the community Mri'Hill is no doubt  interested in cleaning up any misunderstanding of the regional board's powers and  objectives.
