slate of council members
Attending as guests were Milo Filgas
and his wife, Rita, who have recently completed a 2V_ year stay in the Great Bear
Lake mining district in the far north
the directional sign on Highway 101

chamber In view of the demand for space
on the sign, a committee was set up to
recommend a future scale of fees for
members and non-members who wish to
make use of this facility.
The brief to the area director of fisheries recommending amendments to the
Fisheries Act, as_drawn up by the chamber
committee of Ernie Lee, Don Cameron,
Len Larson and Henry Whittaker was ap
proved Among the proposed recommendations is the restriction of summer herring
seining, that all seining for meal and reduction purposes be excluded from waters
adjacent to the coastline from Merry Island in the south to Scotchfir Point in the
north and including Jervis and Secheit Inlet, and that a limit of two fish per day
be set for underwater speargun fishermen
Also that fishing guides be licensed and
deputized as fishery officers.
The entertainment committee was giv
en full authority to proceed with plans for
a Klondike Night to be held in the /summer months All proceeds in aid of the
local centennial committee's project for the
Pender Harbour and Egmont district.

of a highway connecting Port Mellon with
Squamish. This resolution, approved by
both Secheit and Gibsons Chambers will
be presented to the Associated Chambers

The chamber is taking preliminary steps
toward setting up a committee that will
undertake an economic survey of the Pender Harbour district/with a view to present
and future business and industrial development.
Representation will be made to the
attorney general in the near future with a
view to the establishment of a government
liquor store in the area A petition, now in

Council considers . . .
'living contractor offers
extensive paving contract
COUNCIL, of Gibsons is to consider the
offer of a package road works project
by H. Williamson Ltd., paving contractors
who have been responsible for road work
in the area forthe past two years, r -
Appearing before council, Mr. Williamson told members he had, in company with
Commissioner Fred Feeney and Works
Foreman, Fred Holland, surveyed work
needed. Due to having private work in the
district, he is prepared, to repave and reconstruct where necessary at a total cost
of $14,349; considerably less than if he
made a special trip over with his equipment. $9,000 would be required as payment on completion, the remainder to be
payable in the 1968 budget. Of the total
cost, $6,000 would include labour for Which
$3,000 could be claimed back through winter works. Council would thereby be paying out only $6,000 at this time.
Expressing surprise   that  he   knew
wBa^yng^>of^ 4be- ^ eituation, Chairman  Wes
Hodgson said he was unaware of the roads
program ever coming before council.
He was informed by Comm. Jim Drummond that road works were included in the
1967 budget "you asked the roads chair-
Plan (Comm. Feeney) to budget and he
has done it," he said. The chairman insisted he should have been phoned. Comm.
Feeney, however, explained it was simply
a question of Mr; Williamson being in the
district and being shown work needed, by
himself and Mr. Holland.
Council agreed to consider the matter
later and notify Mr, Williamson of its decision.
, Permission for a trailer to be used as
temporary accommodation was, refused.
Mr. R. Holden said it was his intention
to build a home on his lot at Franklyn
and Cochrane Roads, he would appreciate
permission to uso a trailer while construction was in progress.
Comm; Drummond cast the opinion lhat
while council has,; in the past, permitted
erection of a garage which was used for
storage purposes during building of a
home, he did not think council should start
permitting trailers.
Request for road improvements by a
resident by Bay Road pointed out that large
holes in the road were continually filled
with water due to run-off from the upper
Comm. Feeney explainedI the road is included in planned road work but that the
complainant be advised to contact the Post
Office regarding the water run-off from
that property.
Question by Coirim. Wally Peterson as
to who is responsible for paying the annual $10 Municipal Airport licence fee,
brought forth a reply by the chairman that
Gibsons usually pays it. "We have always
looked upon Secheit^ _$4^j^r*^
.he added.
Problem facing many communities poses a similar situation in Gibsons—that of
the disposable bottles* Comm, Ken God-
dard suggested the matter be brought to
the attention of the Union of British Columbia  Municipalities. Council agreed, •

Trial ends
Three M assail! charges
await pre-seitfence report
THREE construction workers employed at
Powell River were found guilty in Secheit of offences involving the assault of a
police constable last October 21. As a result of the incident, Constable Keith Winch
has spent most of the time since in hospital.
Alexander Taber,  age  24,   was found
guilty of assault occasioning bodily harm

,ng a police officer in executon of^u|^^
tip -When Ekland- approached and spoke -to
him. Constable Winch finally broke away
flat tire. From where he stood, he heard
Taber start shouting at the constable and
shortly afterwards a scuffle took place.
The constable was then thrown to the
ground with Taber on top,of him. Thomp-
|sdn and Armstrong moved forward to assist but were fold by Wilson it was not
their business and to keep out of it. Arm-
TWO revolvers and an automatic pistol
were stolen from Walt Nygren's, Gibsons, in the early hours of Saturday morning. No arrests have been made but RCMP
are investigating.
It is understood thieves forced the window of an adjacent store from which they
,..were^a_^vto„ma^e,^n#y.,,...„=, ;,.,„.. .,^„r,,.,^.,^
Another break-in was discovered at Elphinstone High School late Saturday when f%            I '■     '   1    _,   J
the caretaker did his rounds.  Entry had IjOSDPl ITYUS1C  SlfllGCl
been made by forcing a rear door. It is not vavuwvj. uiutuv  _m.-_-.wm,
yet known what, if anything, was stolen.
Charges are expected in the theft of a
bunch of salal from "a home on North
Road, Gibsons. /
In Secheit, two juveniles have been apprehended following a break-in of Benner
Bros. Furniture Store. Stolen were three
knives, a transistor radio and about $10.

GIBSONS-Port Mellon Centennial Com-
' mittee is sponsoring a costume dance
to be held at the Port Mellon Community
Hail Saturday, March, 11.
It is hoped that those attending will,appear In Centennial Dress and be prepared
to participate as did the forefathers 100
years ago.:      .
Proceeds will go toward the Gibsons-
Port Mellon Centennial Swim pool project.
The other .twp, Gary William Eklatfd
and Barry Gordon Wilson were found
guilty of unlawful assault upon a police
officer in execution of his duty.
Magistrate Charles Mittelsteadt concurred with a suggestion by defence lawyer
L. Hill that a pre-sentence report be obtained' before passing sentence. Defence
lawyers finally agreed to March 22nd as
a satisfactory date.
Taber was represented by Hill, the
other two by .Mr. F. Maczko. M. E. Mort-
imor was crown prosecutor.
Albert Thompson of Halfmoon Bay substantiated much of previous testimony by
tow truck operator. Art Armstrong "who appeared at an earlier hearing. He- told the;
court he had accompanied Armstrong to
Secret Cove October 21 where an auto was
found part on and part off the highway.
Three men, Taber, Ekland and Wilson were
at the scene and apparently declined offers of assistance by Armstrong.
Constable Winch, arrived shortly after-
"wards'"and walked toward the three who
were standing near their car which had a
and struggled to get to the car radio but
Taber kept right after him. When the constable called for .assistance^ Thompson
grabbed a chain wrench and^subsequently
struck Wilson two blows. Wilson then took
off . down the road. Thompson stated . he
then turned back toward the scuffle in
time to see Winch thrown in the air .strikr
ing his head on the paved road.
When it was seen that the constable was
in a bad way, Taber ajid Wilson pulled him
into the rear of the police car and drove
off with him toward Secheit,
Constable Keith Decvey of the Secheit
Detachment said he received, calls on his
radio by two different people as a result
of which he drove toward • Secret Cove.
On the way ho met up with the other police car which stopped. Taber was driving,
Ekland was with him in the front and Wilson in the back with Winch.
Asked  what  had  happened,  they  said
Winch  had   been  injured  and should   be
• taken to hospital. Ekland said he was only
, a hitch hiker but later, in court, admitted
this was not true. " ',
Giving evidence, Taber .said tho car was
stopped duo to, a blow-out. Tho car keys got
|lost, consequently ho could, not open tho
trunk in order to change tho wheel, Constable Winch refused to let him -drive the
auto and called the tow truck to remove

that plans for tho elementary school "In-

that the* necessary steps, be taken in this
area to have it designated as a locally
controlled public park."
The statement which induded the legal
advertisement further oxplained the reason for calling tho meeting: "We feel that
the Intent of' this notice should bo brought,
before the public so that they ' may fully

After his marriage to his wife Georgann
at Kingston Cathedral, he worked in the
silver mines at Cobalt and.later bought a
fruit farm in the Okanagan.
In 1920 the family moved to Secheit, at
that time a very small place. The centre
'of-life was the Union Store which'included
the post office run by Mr. I Bert Hackett
and some rooms which could be rented.
There were some cottages belonging to the
Union Steamships, a few houses and a
police station in the Orchard. The town
was served by Union Steamships with such
vessels as the Chasina, the Chilco and
the Capilano.
Mr. Billingsley bought 40 acres of
cleared land at the far end of Mason Road
where he homesteaded for several years,
growing hay and garden produce and selling eggs and milk from his chickens and
cows. Some of his neighbors on Mason Rd.
in those early days were Mr. and Mrs.
Frank French, Mr. and Mrs.. Bill Allen,
Mr. and Mrs. Gregory Allen, Mr. and Mrs.
Jack Wood, the Hector McDonalds, the
Joe .Martins and the Delong family.
The only approach to Mason Road in
those days was the Nox'West Bay Road,
then called School Hill. Marine Drive, was.
called Telegraph Trail and continuedLonly
as far as the end of Bingham's';_teach. If
you wanted'to go any further, you used a
horse drawn wooden-type sled, called a
stone boat, to climb the Nor'West Bay Hill
beside the Clegg estate. In the early 20s,
Mason Road residents used to haul in their
supplies with a .horse and wagon, but
later, Mr. Billingsley imported the first
car. He was also one of the people responsible  for  building  a  small  log  cabin

The Leaislature
—by Hon. Isabel Dawson
IT HAS been an interesting and fruitful
I third week of the 28th sessioh of the
legislative assembly; fruitful not only for
the people of B.€a but also for the people
of Mackenzie, which of course is my primary interest. .■■»■■
Monday afternoon we heard Robert Stra-
chan, leader of the opposition and Ray
Perault, leader of the Liberal party, on
the debate of the budget speech. Altogether 26 members spoke on the budget
and all presented the problems of their
own riding, ^as well as the problems facing us as a province. What one member did
not talk about another did, and therefore
we had a very informative week indeed.
Highlights, were the grant of $700,000 to
the Mental Retardation Institute; a terrific
grant in itself and one in which we all
concur. Also of interest to all, and to all
those in Mackenzie involved in hospital expansion, was the minister of health's. announcement of paying a greater share of
the cost of hospitals; be they acute, extended care or non-profit nursing homes. The
government will pay 60 per cent of the
capital cost after the federal government
contribution ($2,000"a" bed) artd the municipality's 40 per cent. It will apply to hospital projects equal to the four mill levey.
Where capital costs exceed this amount,
the province will pay 80 per cent of capital
cost beyond the federal contribution.
The new provincial financial authority
to be set up will mean cheaper money
for hospital projects. I am pleased indeed
with this new set-up as voters in Mackenzie will remember me stating during the
election that I felt the government should
pay„.a' larger share of the capital cost of
hospital construction. . There are other
aspects that have to do with mental hospitals that will help solve some of the problems facing this part of the health program.
Mr. W.  U Billingsley
Elphie's after thought happening
HI THERE! Things have sure been happening around Elphie and although this
week was rather short, (holidays on Friday, thank gosh!) we managed to do more
damage in four days, than five,
First, to start things off, the students'
council had a slave day on Tuesday. An
assembly was held in the morning, in
which Division 3 put on a ■ skit, It had a
centennial ,theme, with the title of "The
Sunshine Coast Centennial Train." Then
the slaves who had been selected by the
student counpil executive, who were up on
the stage behind the curtains, were auctioned off, one at a time. The students
, didn't know who the slaves vvere, which
made the bidding even more exciting. At
first, everyone was afraid to .speak up,
but Mr. Montgomery got rid of that. After
asking, "Will she pick up paper around
,thc school grounds?" he bought the first
slave for 85c, Then things began to roll. It
was  quite  a   sight" to see, everyone   pool
Robinson    sold    the    most    tickets,    and
turned in about $100.
During the week, the Glad Rag was on
sale. This addition was unusually thick,
and if you;wish to get one, Mr. Peterson
has extra ones in Room 128.
from the minister of finance and the minister of highways that the Texada Island
ferry will be replaced forthwith by a new
and bigger ferry. The highways department
has,agrjgfed'to^Ray 50 per cent of the cost
of a road to be built from Ocean Falls to
Roscoe Inlet; a distance of 10 miles. Crdwn
Zellerbach (Canada) Ltd. will be expected
to contribute the other 50 percent, which I
feel sure they will agree to very shortly.
I was also able to report that replacement
of Grantham's bridge was proceeding rapidly. Other points that I brought out in my
speech \yill be accounted for elsewhere in
this paper.   •
I am hopeful that wc can come_up with

Alfred Waddington
a more direct road through to Fort Alexandria from Bute Inlet, partly along the
course of the Homathko River.
He laid out a townsite on Bute Inlet,
tbe town to foe named Waddington—and he
set a party of roadmakers to work. He
had an agreement with the government of
the colony that he could operate his mule
trail as a toll road. He planned to be rich
but in 1864, about a month before his route
was to have been opened, Chilcotin Indians
slaughtered most of his workers and caused
tbe complete collapse-^Tme project. The
colonial government spent $80,000 for two
expeditions against the Indians which resulted in five of them being hanged. And

Fins and Tails

■.-.■'.' {i-
. "SO IT'S tyee you're after,, eh sonny?' Do
you think you can handle one; you're
not more 'n a good size chino,ok yourself."-
So was my introduction io Nahmint as a
lad of 14 on the Port Alberni Canal over
on. Vancouver Island.
In the summer of 1954 I told a small
white lie regarding my age to the B.C.
Forest Service, and with the help of my
father who just happened to know the
foreman, landed a job planting trees on,
the Alberni Canal. On the weekends most
of the crew, along with loggers from the
s. camps along the c/inal, cannery workers,
and vacationers, would all squeeze aboard
the boat heading for Alberni. The stories
that the holidayers would relate on the
trip began to bring out the fishing bug in
me. ' '
As the summer moved along the tale's of
30-pound chinooks grew and grew so that
promises of 40 or 50-pound tyee were com
mon. The one place that seemed to pop up
more than any of the other favorite spots
was Nahmint. The finab trip down the.
canal that summer was just a little sad
for me. I was leaving the world of men
and heading back to the world of school
books, homework and the terrible thought,
at that time, of being 14 again. I made a
silent promise to myself that when those
' big tyee really started to run I would head
for Nahmint and get me one.
It was a promise I kept and about five
weeks later I was heading up the Alberni
Canal with my Dad, rod in hand and heart
in mouth.
The trip up the canal never seemed
as long before. Each landmark seemed to
pass so slowly it appeared as if we were
drifting with the tide. I half expected that
when I stepped off the boat at Nahmint
a tyee would leap out of the water into
my arms. The welcome I received brought
me back to earth.
It was late in the afternoon and the
sea was like a sheet of  glass  when  we

and it's the movie.
You buy a ticket and pass
through the garish-postered lobby
to tjrtc scruffy ramp of dreams beyond.
In the hawking, odourous darkness,
you find a seat
and settle down
amid the hunched^ anonymous forms. '
to swim illusion for a little time.
The first picture is an innocuous western,
and totally undistinguished—-
you absorb its predictabilities
with indifference. '  .>■
Tho second is n nco-roalistic,
relentlessly sordid epic
of iho Chicago slums '^

Score 4 to 3 . . .
The boats that were in the area were
all trolling and using fairly heavy tackle.
Anywhere up to a pound or so of lead,
a large flasher and a big plug seemed to
be the rule.
Since I cut my first teeth on a light
split cane rod, made for me by my grandfather, trolling has always seemed to me
to be a more commercial type way of
fishing for salmon.
When we were over what looked to be
a likely spot for a snooping chinook, Dad
cut the Briigs and Stratton motor and put
out the oars. I had my herring on and the
line with three ounces of weight in the
water and mooching in what would probably be record time. The term "mooching"
was not a common then as it is today.
To the trollers going by we were "still
fishing" or "nigger fishing" as it was
commonly called.
It wasn't long, perhaps 20 minutes or
so, before I had action. After a fight of
about 30 minutes I had an 18-pound, six-,   at a time.and place yet to be announced
ounce  spring in the  boat.  It  wasn't the
tyee I was after but it sure was a beauty.
Dad hit and landed a couple more around
the same size before darkness forced us
Sunday morning we were on the water
as the sun came up. Dad had spoken with
a couple of chaps the night before who had
been fishing Nahmint for years and they
had suggested using a little more weight.
It was  very  sound  advice  because  that
morning the tide was really moving and we
had a devil of a time keeping the boat in
one  place.  From  time  to time  we  had
to start the inboard and run back up the
canal. We took one about 14 pounds that
day and lost a couple more.
As we headed back to Alberni with our
four good-size springs safely, wrapped  in
ferns and newspaper, I was repeating'the
same phrases I had heard that summer
on the same boat. I was the fisherman with
the tales.
,    My tyep? Well sir, it,had to wait a few
years but I got him. A 44-pound, seven-
ounce tyee from you guessed it—Nahmint.
Fishing oh the. Sunshino Coast has been
a Httlo slow this past week. Sargents Bay
,has slpwed down along with tho Ponder
region, Randy Pake took a 33-pounder
from Sargents a couple ot Sundays ago.
Up at McUntocks .13 members of tho North
Shore Rod and Gun Club spent tho weekend. Members were out on tho chuck on

most part. They held a two nothing lead
until 10 minutes from full time when the
Braves finally broke through for a goal."
Braves pressed hard for an equalizer
but left it too late in the game to make
their big effort. • Legion held them out for
the win and the right to meet Secheit
Legion in the final next Sunday. Kick-off
1:00 p.m.
Secheit Legion warmed up for next
week's Provincial Cup district final with
a 3-0 win over Residential Cubs.
Residential Totems rolled along for a
convincing win over Local 297. Playing a
faster brand of soccer than the 'Locals'
the Totems controlled play for the better
part of the game. Outstanding for the losers was Ritchie Godfrey who gave it all
he had and you just can't give any more
than that.
Totems potted three goals in each half
with Barney Hanuse getting his first hat-
trick of the season. Other scorers for the
Totems were, Bernie August 1, Laurie
Gabriel 1, -and John Dick 1. Robert Solnik
got the lone goal for the, 'Locals.' Final
score:  Totems 6, Local 297 1.
Next Sunday these two teams go at it
again in the District Provincial Cup Final.	
Kick-off 2:00 p.m. at Hackett Park. The        I would hate to eat at a boarding house
winner  will  meet  Powell  River  champs    with a lot of Congressmen. You know how
long" it takes those fellows to pass anything.
Pegasus outplay Pacers
during hard played game
PEGASUS F.C. was. fortunate to get by
WV Pacers at Humulcheson Park Sat-"
urday. The West Van. boys, who ,(have • yet
to win a game this season, came out determined to go whole hog, for a victory,,
and they very nearly pulled it off.
Pegasus' outside left opened the scoring at the two-minute mark with a shot
from an acute angle which curbed in. This
goal convinced the Pegasus players ■' that.
this was going to be an easy day, and they
v adopted the, 'we can win without trying'
, >WtudeI.,(., Imagine their surprise when
within five minutes tho Pacers wore ahead
2-1 and the ball was on the penalty spot
for what could be number throe. Fortun*,
ately Dave FosseU, saved the shot and
saved tho day. Tho score remained at 2-1
for the Pacor^ at half-time and Pacers
definitely had tho edgo.
Tho "clty'l kids came out all fired-up
for the second half arid gave tho 'Pegs'
goalie a fow anxious moments. Inside-right
Lome Edmunds, who as always played a
hard game, |A«d It Up for tho 'Pegs* with
a hard, loft-foot shot from 20 yards. Tho
goalkeopor got n hand on It but lt was just
too hot to handle, This goal was an Inspiration to his team and mlnutoa later tho
roforco awarded Pogasus a penalty kick
for a hand ball, Gordon Dick made no mistake and scored with a perfectly placed
shot just inside the post. Pacers weren't
fnished yet, almost immediately .centre-
foreward Wilf Williams evened the score
with a high "blooper" type., shot which
Dave Fossett caught but .dropped-,behind
'■himself to give Pacers the goal. ■   '
With about 10 minutes left to play Tony
Paul made a brilliant play to set up the"
winner.  Pegasus took the ball down the
left side with a series of passes drawing
the   defence   over   and   leaving   Roland
August in good scoring position. Tony took
the ball Into the corner, and then chipped ,..
right to the feet of the waiting outside
right. Roland' picked his spot and hit home ,
the winner. The 'Pegs' controlled the game,,
from this point to earij two tough points.
Next week it's PfoVinclal Cup play with
Pogasus   inciting   West, Vancouver  Wanderers at Hackett Park, kick-off 1:00 p.m.
This Is a sudden death competition with

NQ QNE can deny that the United States   that the average Canadian citizen likes  is one of the.two strongest powers in  the Vqriel today. And, unless something  extraordinary happens, it will continue tp  be sp for a long tinie to come.  One of the problems of the smaller  and less economically powerful country  is to avoid being trod upon by the bigger  unit.  Canada has an unguarded border with ,  the big neighbor to the south but there is  very little likelihood that Canadian manpower will be called upon to defend the  country from a southern invasion. Canada's defense lies not against a military  invasion, but in safeguarding its economy  and other basic rights and privileges "  which it now enjoys.  One of Canada's biggest resources is  water and this is the latest of a long list,  over,, the. years, of Canadian property  which the Americans appear to covet.  There is a shortage of water in the United  States and the plan now is to go ahead  and devise means whereby Canadian  water may be sent to the United States.  Without appearing to be jingositic,  Canada must study these proposals carefully. Let no one be misled by the idea '  that the Americans will be doing Canada  a great favour. The plans will be drawn  up by Americans for America.  The $100 billion, 30-year plan has  beeri drawn by a Los Angeles firm of engineers, but before going ahead with anything, Canadian consent must first be  obtained.  Oregon Governor McCall is quoted as  saying: "The thing is to get our figures,  and have a really strong case:"7V.1 think  the figures will show we are short of water  for the next 100 years."  Canada is just 100 years old. At the  moment it has more water than it needs  and no one would want to live in plenty  while a neighbour thirsts. If the Oregon  governor js to be construed correctly, the  project is being considered on a long term  basis of over 100 years. He is thinking in  terms, of Oregon's neejls. He wants' to present a "really strong case". It must be as-  sujned that some consideration will be  given to. the Canadian, and more parti-  . cujarly, British Columbian, side of the  question.  TOio knows what"the future wilj  bring? Canada, and more particularly,  British Columbia, is expanding rapidly.  It is conceivable that there will be towns  ahd cities in British Columbia where none  now exist. Other towns and cities will  grow."What then? This is not.being obstructionist. This is facing facts.  The immediate factor is to alleviate  the American water situation, and see-  to retain his identy, status.-friYileges and  resources, then it is only righf that the  smaller towns, which might be hindered  in their expansion at a future date, should  have some say.  On what basis will the allocation of  water to the United States be given?  The time for asking questions is now.  The moment for action immediately.  Le{ no one be under a misapprehension. Anything which the United States  does, is with the prime purpose of safeguarding the rights of the United States.  And, in seeing that the United States remains a mightly power. Canada will not  get any better deal because of its traditional relationship with the United  States than. Mexico, Peru or Pakistan, to  pick three countries at random.  The policy of the United States once  was: go softly and carry the big stick.  Now that.it is no longer politic to use  those methods, it seems that the adopted  one is: go softly, get what you can��� and  promise, or withold money as the situation permits!  What in this context might be fair  and equitable to the United States in this  istance of the North American Water and  Power Alliance might not be the same for  Canada . . . Especially a Canada, and-  British Columbia, of 100 years hence.  It is not to be understood that the  question should create a hostile attitude  towards the United States. But what is  needed is a firm stand on the matter. This  is w-hy it is suggested that the areas which  will be directly involved in the question,  and which will be^ound by an agreement  in perpetuity, should be allowed to voice  their opinions. Then, and only then can  any basis for an agreement be entered  into. It is a.bit of presumption on the part  of any state in the United States to present  a plan, which in effect appears to form  the nucleus for consideration.  Rather, it should be left to Canada to  decide if, how and in what form water  will be allowed to the United States.  It is not the fault of the smaller communities in British Columbia, who may  be affected by this project, that several  rivers and lakes in the United States have  become so polluted that they are fit for  nothing useful to mankind, and in this  case Americans. Who in Canada can be  blamed for the shortage which has arisen  because of this abuse?  As the situation now stands, any  concession will be given by Canada,  father than the other way round.  From a Canadian point of view: does  this make sense? Now is not the time for  pndjy jtq protect it 100 years ahead. .What hands to be thrown in the air in despair  safeguards, if any, for a Canada 100 years and the sooner the smaller communities  from now? realize that they should say something,  It is suggested that now is the time for the better. If Big Brothpr is allowed, the  action, h is ^ur^her: suggested that the opportunity to curtail the prosperity of  sn'.aljef cpnimunity be given some say in future generations of Canadians; then,  ivhat is as much; their problem as_it is , even though all isn't Jpst it might as well  Ottawa's)' or Victoria's.

The Times:        , '."."'���  Sir���This letter is in reply to the many  inquiries and protests I have had since *my  notice was published in the local paper. _  A copy of this letter has been mailed- to  the land commissioner, MP Jack Davis,  MLA Isabel Dawson, and Highways Minister Mr. Gaglardi.  Firstly, it is not and never \vas-~my  intention to deprive anyone of the much-  needed sandy beach at Mission Point. The  lease * would commence at a point some  100 feet west of this area, and run at a  south-westerly direction out 500 feet.  This in effect should improve the present area in question as it would then be  protected from any disturbance to the  northwest-  Tn^e beach in question that the lease  will contain is now rocky and anyone using  it must park on the road allowance thus  creating, a traffic hazard to children or  through traffic. I intend to reclaim enough  land to allow parking off the highway thus  eliminating this hazard.' I intend that the  boat harbor will acconjmodate commercial  and pleasure craft apd should benefit all  residents in the arjea, business or otherwise. As it was quoted in, another local  paper Davis Bay is an unprotected and  precarious anchorage and with a marina in  this area, where a rescue boat can be  anchored, a lot of these accidents could be  prevented.  I hope that this letter will clarify the  misgivings of the persons and residents  concerned.  WESLEY. ANDERSON.  ��  Public support  Editor The Times,  SIR���On behalf of the Committee who organized the public meeting in Wilson  Creek on February 16th, Iwish to express,  through your columns, our sincere appreciation and thanks to the residents of the  area and others on the Peninsula who turned up in such great numbers to mark their  disapproval of the proposed project at Davis Bay. We were very encouraged by their  support, and we" will now proceed with the '  next steps in accordance with their wishes.  '"'"'"' We would also at this time like to express our thanks to all those who took the  time and trouble to write letters to the various ministers, Mrs. Dawson, M.L.A., and  the lands commissioner as the weight, of  this   public   opinion   has   apparently   had  great effect.      We also record with much appreciation  the help and coverage which we have had  from the press."  D. ADELE DE LANGE  Open season  Editor, The Times:  Sir���I note you have been busy and  short of space in a Go-Go Sunshine Coast,  but has there been an open season on Scottish people and had them all shot?  Unless I missed the item, I never read  anything of the poet Robert Burns Anniversary, suppers, etc.  I have heard some of his songs to modern music; you can't swing Annie Laurie,  the poetry is not too good. Contrary to the  idea of some people, Burns never met her,  he just saw her-walking in the garden of  ��� a house next door to a house where he was  visiting. She never married.  He believed; in God, else he couldn't  have written.the lovely poem, "To Mary  In Heaven." Thomson theSeditor was hard  on him, (no relation to Xord Thpmson).

Also the decision to adop{ UDI sprang  not from merely a selfish desire to promote the welfare of the while Rhodesians  but from a genuine concern for the progress of her dependant colored people.  As a "News Of The World" editorial  puts, it: "the 223,000 white Rhodesians believe that they are making a stand not  only to safeguard their own future, but  "-also to save their colored countrymen  from the misery, chaos and communism  which independence has brought to so many  African countries. This is a stand which  calls for respect instead of condemnation,  patience and understanding rather than  wild talk of rebellion. The British government's only aim is to safeguard the interests of the non-white majority of Rhodesia. -  What right have we to presume that baser  motives inspire our white fellow countrymen there?"  One cannot forget that it was an. Englishman   who  greatly   aggravated   matters   in  the beginning by opining that it was quite  all right for a Christian to take, up arms  against his brothers.

Love letters  Editor, The Times,  SIR���While   the   Socialist   government   of  Britain flirts with the Socialist Soviet  Republic, one lone voice recently "had the  guts to point out a few home truths to  Premier Kosygen during his recent visit.

The British Governments continuing  "lady-in-waiting"     attitude    towards    the  U.S.S.R. reminds me of Prime Minister  Neville Chamberlain's coy visits to Hitler  prior to World War II and his flushed return to England waving a "love letter"  from Hitler promising "peace in our time."  and just before he marched on Poland.  But why shake our heads over PrTme  Minister Wilson of Britain? Our own Socialist N.D.P. has been trying to get to  waltz with the Russian Bear for years!

She also announced approval in  principle for additions to St. Mary's Hospital in Secheit and agreement between  the government and/Crown Zellerbach to  build a 10 mile road between Ocean Falls  and Roscoe Inlet.  Other problems touched upon in the  speech were help for small logging operations, development of parks and marines;  cottage-type hospitals to serve the less  populated areas; construction of educational facilities; improvements in highway and  ferry systems; development of the northern region of the riding.  MACKENZIE  RIDING  Mrs. Dawson began her speech with a  detailed study of Mackenzie riding; "the  greatest, and I believe one of the most rugged and scenic, and diversified ridings in  the entire province."  She reviewed most of the principal communities and the industry that is carried  on in them, as well as the small "portable"  communities found in the many inlets.  "There are many problems because of  the size and complexity of this riding. We  are faced with problems of communication, the need of more ferry services, highways, bridges, parks, schools'and hospitals. In addition we have the problem of  the small logging operator and the fisherman. We have labor and we have man-  * agement.  Mrs. Dawson said the people of the riding are also concerned with broader problems; retarded children, the handicapped,  mental health, safety on the highways, senior citizens, extended care facilities, the  law, and so forth. Bcause of the size of the  riding, she said, it is a tremendous problem to see that the needs of all the larger  communities are heard, but she is equally  concerned with the smaller and more isolated communities, and individuals.  Hon.   Isabel  Dawson  (Bill Reid Photo)  INDIVIDUALS   IMPORTANT  "I _ay-^h__-t;'_iMi''*nowrv'shouH-''the''-day  come that I am only concerned about the  larger areas, and forget the smaller places  and the individual person, then I deserve  to lose the right to represent my riding.  I would also like to point out this fact;  that for the first time in 32 years, aside  from'a short period of coaHtion government, our riding has at last elected a member of the government side���and it took  a woman to do it."  Mrs. Dawson pointed out the very heavy  population of union membership in the population of the riding, and added there has  been very little in the way of labor disturbance. "Much of the progress we now enjoy, and especially in the Powell River  area where there is a great expansion going on, is because of the wise decisions of  . the. men who.are the heads of the .(union)  locals and ��he head* of -mlamgement." T  Mrs. Dawson said she does not "belong  to union nor to management; I am unbiased on the side of either.of these, and I  believe this is good."  GREAT, FUTUREV  ; Mrs. Dawson then spoke of comments  made recentl&iby-the minister of lands,and  forests; ;who Said Mackenzie is one of the  richest of B.C. ridings. ''Forest industries,  he pointed out," she said, "are B:C.'s top  industry, bringing'in four tinies' the wealth  of the next, "jniir^rtarit industry, mining.  Mackenzie riding'is the leader^ in production pf. forest products, /creating, a, total  0-^18,000,000 in new wealth; last year."  Mrs. Dawson expanded on tho forest  industries theme, stating she could foresee  a great future/for, the ridmgi and tremendous, expansion in this'' industry^' 'If we  think it is great now^ just ;wait, for the  next few years."  LOGGING   INDUSTRY  The minister then turned to the many  problems of the small logger and stated  she has, been." taking'steps to help with  these problems; She noted she had held  discussions with the ministers of forests  and industrial development about the> possibility of holding seminars to help small  logging operators with economics of the  'industry. She, also dealt with the need for  more assistance in tho development of  logging access roads.   ,  TOURISM  Turning to the tourist industry, Mrs.  Dawson stated, "I could say much about  this area but suffice it to say it is just  terrific."  She spoke of hunting, fishing, swimming,  boating, scenery, all of -which she said  are among Uie very best to bo found, "Wo  havo the climate thnt Jcnda to the tourist  trade, for, wc arc rcforrjBd^tpjf|Oh9*sMn^  "shine Coast and it really irthaU-Uic! BanT  ana Belt, of B.C," ;. .. .    ,  She spoke on the rapidly growing num-  areas that are not large enough to build  and maintain a general hospital."  She suggested there are many such  areas in Mackenzie that might be served  in such a manner; among them Texada  Island, Stuart Island or' Minstrel Island.  She said she would like to see a pilot  project of this type and would be glad  to assist in establishing it in this riding.  "It would help relieve the bed shortages  in the larger hospitals which could be used for the more acute illnesses and specialized cases, for which they are equipped." ;  SCHOOLS  Mrs. Dawson also devoted a portion of  her speech to schools, noting there is a  cry for more and more schools from all  corners of the province. She noted the importance of education to our young people  and added, "It is therefore essential that  the construction of various levels of education facilities in our riding should go a-  head and it was with pleasure that I heard  the minister of finance state that all approved school construction in B.C. will be  financed. This is good news indeed, as of  course this means our riding as well."  FERRY SYSTEM  "Ferries, highways and bridges," said  Mrs. Dawson,, together form "the area of  our greatest concern throughout the riding."  On tins subject she- spoke as follows:  "We have within the riding, several industrial complexes, three of which effect  the ferries and highways and bridges on  the Sunshine Coast; the other two or three  I will deal with elsewhere.  "At Port Mellon we have the Howe  Sound Division p�� Canadian Forest Products Liniited^wH^^employs approximately 430 persoS^^^Shas. an annual payroll  of 2.75 millio^^Ml capacity of the mill is  575 tons per^lay of unbleached or 520 tons  per day of bleached kraft pulp. The Port  Mellon mill was acquired by Canadian Forest-Products in 195i, at wWch'time it had  a productive capacity of 140 tons per day  of unbleached;kraft pulp only. Major expansion., and  modeniiz-tion  programs   in  ful  River  on the Jervis Inlet run, and-tiifel|C^i6x  Queen, a Department of Hignw|ys||^sel _  on the Comox-Ppwell River r_�� ;JI|||Shit  time, it is doubtful that anyone cbiUd|K|iv(e  foreseen the tremendous impact '\o_^$f#c-  Millan BloedePs $105,000,000 phis,: ;l$|jih-  sion in Powell River and somewfp|?iUje;  transportation problems which hdye reftilt'  edfrom it. Each month 2 major j_a|||rig  firms for the mill expansion are sfenffing  in an average of 60 low bed trailfers|| 60  feet long, to Powell River and bacltiejacn  month. In addition, over 200 truc3_^-per  month are hauling mail and hea%.|ppds  and to these unknown figures busesffhat  run 'twice daily, and other teckerls^ybo  . do not operate on a schedule, oiie can|jsee ,  the existing ferries are heavily overtimed.  SITUATION SERtOUS  "The situation must be regarded as|serious when weekend passenger traffic of -  ten wait one to three ferries before getting  on. And while some say this will prpfeably  level off after the expansion, I do not en--  tirely agree. This is borne put in thVptjlp  and Paper Industry of British Columbia's  edition of October 22nd, 1966, InklustryvSur-  vey which it states,, quote "a further !&00,;  000,000 is zeommitted oit:puIp and newsprint  expansion by 1970 at Powell River on a  forest complex with pulp and other' facilities, at Whitecourt, Alberta and a liner-  board mill at P__ehill, Alabama. Of course,  we will not be getting all pi this in Powell  River, but even _ portion will be good for  our area. It is estimated that the resident  population- in Powell River wiH be increased well over 1,500 people, so the peak we  are experiencing now, can be expected, to  continue.  "There is no, end to the grumbling: and  discontent of committees and individuals  using the Jervis Inlet and Langdale ferries. To be fair, I must say that the B.C.  Ferries has co-operated at the Langdale  run, as they are now having hourly service  on the weekend. This is good indeed.  FE-RRY  PARKING  "However, another problem experienc-.  ed at Langdale and Earl's Cove and Salt-  ery Bay, particularly but also at the Powell River side of the * Island run?;' that isPfo'  sufficient ferry parking space. There being insufficient parking within the terminals at peak periods, vehicles have to park  along the main highways taking up One  lane of a two lane highway. Vehicles," in  order to continue, ontoi....their,, destination,,  especially Port Mellon and Saltery Bay,  travel on the wrong side of the highway.

INSTITUTIONS WELL  RUN  Tiirning to problems of province-wide  interest, Mrs. Dawson stated she has visited a number, of institutions- including  Valleyview, Riyerview, Woodlands, Bran1-  nan Lake, Wi-ingdon School, Haney, Col-  quitz.and the Siirjaaby Mental Health Centre. She said ^hp; was amazed and impressed at the work that goes on in all of  these'centres, "and I say in all sincerity  that "no one has anything to worry about  concerning the attention given the trainees,-or patients as the case may be, in  these ;.institotions."       '    .  Mrs. Dawson rapped the press, claiming a reporter had toured an institution  for two days and yet-no story was published. "Why not I wonder? I suggest that the  reason was the good news never makes  for sensational news, and this, I must  say, is a sad state of affairs."  HERITAGE  In conclusion Mrs. Dawson spoke of  the Centennial year of our nation and recalled many of the; pioneer families of  Mackenzie riding. "These are the people  we must remember, for they are the people who have given us our great heritage.  Mackenzie is like an awakening giant, who  discovered there is much work to be done  and is stretehing -forth into the new- century with its head held high and a stout  heart and with this determination, we cannot fail , ��� ��� Ours is��� a heritage without  equal. I can only hope and pray that I  may.be true to the heritage that has been  handed to us."  MORE  ABOUT . . .  '��� Assault charges  ��� :  ���from page:..l  Winch's neck.  Admitting they had been drinking pn the  ferry, Wilson said he thought only lie and  Ekland had been asked to stop drinking  on the ferry and that they had beeh told  to remove themselves from a restricted  area on the vessel.  Both Ekland and Wilson denied taking  part in the assault and said they only grabbed Taber by the arms to pull him away  from the constable.  Defence Lawyer Hill who during bulk of  the proceedings was supported by Maczko,  suggested Winch had been unduly officious  with a certain amount of bullying and simply ended up the loser when he tangled  with Taber. In effect the court was given  to believe, the constable merely got what  he asked for.  Seeking clemancy after sentence had  been passed, Hill told the magistrate the  three ^ere gainfully employed,- married  with children. Also, he asked that it be  bourne in mind they behaved in an exemplary manner when they saw the constable  was injured. He therefore asked that _ presentence report be obtained before passing  sentence.

A   PERSPEX   and   metal   capsule,  large
enough for a grown person lo lie full-
length, is one of the new pieces of apparatus that the B.C. Cancer Institute, Vancouver, employs in the continuing search for
improved methods of treatment. This is
a mobile hyperbaric oxygen chamber, used
to augment the effects of routine radiotherapy.
The hyperbaric chamber, made possible
by a grant from the (Order of Ihe EasBrn
Star, is under the supervision of Dr. Peter
Coy, a. radio-therapist at the institute. He
said the fundamental reason for the use
of the chamber is to improve the oxygenation of tumor cells in a cancerous growth.
"As malignant tumors get bigger, the
tumor cells grow beyond the distance
through which nutrition from the blood can
pass easily," he continued. "In effect, they
outgrow their blood supply."
Some tumor cells die because of lack
of oxygen, but others live on even with a
reduced supply. "It is known that tumor
cells with a poor oxygen supply are less
sensitive to irradiation than well-oxygenated cells." Dr. Coy continued.
"So, when radiation is given, malignant
cells*.which are well-oxygenated perish,
while cells that are less well supplied with
oxygen survive." This is believed to'*-be
one of the reasons why sonie tumors respond well to radiation treatment and
others do not.
Experiments have shown that raising
the oxygen level of all cells increases
their sensitivity to radiation.
"By means of the hyperbaric chamber,
patients breathe pure oxygen under pressure. This increased pressure forces the ■
oxygen into poorly oxygenated parts of tumors and makes them more sensitive to
^ ^The;,patient = is,;,placed in the. tank for
approximately 45 minutes, during' which
time the pressure is raised as high as three
"The only sensation experienced by tbe
patient is a feeling in the ears similar to
that which an airplane passenger gejs
when the. plane begins to descend.
"When oxygenation is complete, the
patient—while still enclosed in the chamber—is wheeled into an adjoining room
for routine cobalt therapy. Patients normally receive eight treatments in the hyperbaric chamber—twice a week for four
* The chamber has been in use for the
past six months, and it is too early yet
to determine hoiv successful it is. "However, reports from other parts of the world
indicate that this; is a worthwhile procedure," stated Dr. Cpyf-

come loping up through the grass and
across the dooryard at a trot, and he'd

But one day by utter mischance somebody left sometlung against the inside wall
of the grain room and didn't bother to go
and hunt up Thomas and inform him. It
was a cwt. of scratch grain, is what it was,

This factor alone will make  the legislation worthwhile, in this column's  opinion at least. For some considerable  time the CBC has been the object of much  criticism, most of, it of an adverse nature  and coming from all parts of the country.  While there are many excellent programs emanating from the CBC, there are  also some stinkers and we, who are limited  to one channel viewing due.to topographical location, are stuck with them���either  that or turn off the TV set, which many  of us do.  The- program "Sunday" which is a very  poorer replacement for the extremely* high-  rated "This Hour Has Seven Days" is one  in question. When the chair in the bear-  pit is occupied by one of our worthy politicians it becomes neither more nor less  than a platform from which to expound his  political theories,- irrespective of the subject matter in hand.. Too many off-beat  characters, including poets (??.) musical  and singing groups and individuals who^  have neither talent or voice, take up valu- "  able time that could be put to much better  purpose.  A prime example was a recent Sunday  show that devoted almost 15 minutes of  valuable air time to a supposedly satirical  skit on the impressions received by two  of today's "turn-me-on" crowd when viewing modernistic paintings or works of art  we never did find out which. A three-minute skit, such as depicted, would, in this  viewer's opinion, have been at least two  minutes too long. But to stretch it out for.  almost a quarter of an hour���ugh!  This is not to imply that the "Sunday"  show is altogether a waste of time. It has  many interesting and instructive facets,  but the general opinion in this locality is  that it has much room for improvement.  It would appear that the producer must  often be hard pressed for material with  which to fill his allotted 60 minutes, and  thus takes the easy way out  Generally speaking, CBC programs are  of a high standard, particularly the open  '"iorumsT'the"documentaries and others 6f  like nature, and with knowledgeable and  able people to Conduct them. These we  enjoy. "But there is always the odd production that appears to be produced only  for the benefit and self-glorification of the  prpducer and comment  '"'thought'for & viewing audience. "Umbrella" was one of these, yet it was kept  on the air for a considerable time while,  "Wojeck" which had a high national rating and won an award at the Monte Carlo  International Television Festival, was  killed after _ few episodes, as was "Quen-  tin . Durgen MP," another fine series.  Probably the latter show was reflecting  to closely on the daily happenings on Parliament Hill and, as a result, was consigned to oblivion.  Taxpayers areVeatitied.4o the best-possible ^return^on their tax dollar and as a  considerable portion of the said dollar is  earmarked ;ipr��� support; of the CBC it behooves that body to pay closer attention to  the likes and: ./dislikes of the Canadian  population as a whole.

Nicholson, minister responsible to Parliament for Central Mortgage and Housing  Corporation.  Provided under the National Housing  Act, the loan will be made to the Malaspina Senior Citizens' Home Society, a  nonprofit corporation. The loan is for a  period of 50 years with interest at six  per cent per annum.  The project will provide accommodation  for 40 senior citizens in a one-storey hostel  containing 40 single bedrooms, a lounge, a  dining room and a kitchen.,,  The Province of British Columbia will  ��� provide a grant of $85,500 towards the cost  of construction.  The loan is made under a section of  the NHA which provides long-.term loans  to non-profit corporations for the construction or acquisition and conversion of housing projects for persons or families of low  income. :.

SCHOOL ABSENCE ���        ,���  School principals are becoming concerned over pupils taking leave of absence for  reasons such as baby sitting, or taking  holidays. In a letter to the board, Mr.  George Cooper recommended that publicity  be given Section 3 of the Public Schools  Act where sufficient reasons fpr absence,  are given as sickness^of pupil or family or  any other unavoidable cause which renders  attendance impracticable.  Principal of Elphinstone, Mr. W,.. S.

Policy is that no money should  be left in. schools overnight) but trustee  Celia Fisher felt that the school should hot  be responsible for money collected for  charities or such things as school photographs; it is up to the agencies to make  their own collections. Chairm-h Joe Horvath does not agree with school collections  for charity, a man is hit at\\fa>rk and how  the children in school, he said.

FREE SPECTACLES  Dr. P. J. Reynolds, director of the  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit, asked the  board to consider" purcKasmg  for students who could riot afford them.  There have been a few instances of students who could not afford them.
