Two candidates, Miss WHma  Mandelkau and Miss Ann Gor*'  don, were initiated into the order in an impressive ceremony  conducted by Honored Queen,  Heather Garllck.  The meeting was followed by  a politick supper for members,  parents and friends.  A member of the RCMP "told  the court the .accused had been  involved in a previous mishap  in January last, *  Magistrate Johnston told the  youth "your driving habits are  very poor, however .1 -am not  trying you on anything which  occurred in the past.", .  Following a .plea of guilty,  he was fined S50 plus costs  and a 60 day licence suspension.  IMPAIRED  Lawrence Robert Gauthier of  Gibsons, seen by the RCMP to  be driving erratically near  Gibsons in the early hours of  last Saturday, morning, was  found to be impaired and was  subsequently arrested.

Councillors VLang and Benner^  strongly supported such - a pro-,  ject and Councillor Gordon sai45  he had previously been. unfav*  orable toward public toilets but-  as suggested by Mr.- Poteet;  they could be locked at night'  and he therefore <��tddVsee: nothing wrong with the idea.  Mrs. Poteet- said- the PTA-  would take responsibility for  arranging use rosters and  thought each group using the  building should be told they  would be responsible for cleaning up afterwards.

This follows a brief recently  submitted to Ottawa by Mr.  Nygren on behalf of the chamber which seeks-a breakwater,  dredging and additional floats  in the wharf area: -��� ���=���  Following a \ comprehensive  discussion, the -goverrihient representative indicated he felt  the proposed improvements  were needed and sought added  information as to the- number  of vessels expected to use the  additional floats and facilities.- *  Chairman of the Sechelt marine committee of the Chamber 5  of  Commerce,  Norm   Watson,   i  also   expressed   confidence   in   '  the prospects of a breakwater.  Arecent   letter   from   Mr.  Jack Davis, MP confirmed that  changes   in   legislation   which  would qualify Sechelt for federal grants covering the breakwater, had been approved t by  ance.

It was a  very noisy and lively evening with about two sets  cavorting around the floor. Severel new records were  tried and I must say, ��� danced successfully with great  skill and poise, but one thing we never forget, and that's  to have plenty of fun, relaxation and more fun.  Grace and Frank Bonin, the   the paper I'm writing on, of  course, so I'll look for you at  the square dance.  . new caretakers of the Girl  Guide Camp, joined the Sechelt Promenaders and really  helped to make the evening a  success and I sure hope to  see them back again. The Bon-  ins came from Goose Bay, Labrador, and Frank was telling  " me' that the square dance club  they belonged to there was the  Goose Steppers. Now, he said,  the funniest part was when  they  moved to the  Vancouver  ��� area they joined a square  dance club called the Web  Sooters . . . quite a coincidence. However, we hope to see  you at our club again and in  'the meantime, welcome to the  Sunshine Coast. May you have  many happy years in this  scenic section of Beautiful British Columbia.    The Jr. Square Dancers will  again take to the floor on Friday, April 16 at 7 p;m:;is6  don't forget because on Saturday, April 24 we will be sqnaiv  tig up with7the~1Sechelt~PT0  enaders. This will be a night  for you to really remember.  And parents, I do hope that  you will bring your children to  the square  dance  and stay to  Throughout B.C. . .  Improvement districts  overgrown by progress  YOU MAY sit and watch stagnation but you cannot sit  and watch growth, said, Hon. Dan CampbeH., municipal affairs minister referring to the fact that 9JH_  per cent of British Columbia is unorganized and totally  disorganized territory, unprepared to meet and tackle  the problems created by the present growth and progress now apparent throughout British Columbia.  Improvement  districts   form-    ~~  Unusual occasion  AFTER visiting the provincial parksite at Skookumchuk  Rapids, Hon. Dan Campbell and Mrs. Isabel Dawson visited Doriston. Forty one years is a long time to  wait for a road but 83^year-old Oscar Gjerkin is a patient man. Pictured here from the left are Mrs, Isabel  Dawson, Powell River; Martin Gjerdin, Mr. and Mrs.  Gunnar Gjerdin, Hon.

Polluted     countryside  surrounds municipal areas with  no parksites or garbage disposal areas set aside where once  ^tcTthem perform \nThJe    i^^^il^^ffr^^L^f  coffee  with us  after."  I have a couple of dates to  remember this week and the  first one was on Dec. 17, 1960.  It says here, Christmas party,  man what food! I don't think  anyone ate for a week after  and the square dancing was  wonderful, too. Well, a statement like that speaks for itself because square dance women are noted for their delicious refreshments.  Next is a Christmas card  with all the signatures of the  Halfmoon Bay square dancers  and you know, I quite often  think of the square dance times  had at the Welcome Beach  Community Hall. Yes, it does  bring back memories. I was  just talking to Mr. Grundy and  he informed me that for health  reasons they were moving back  to their home in Vancouver  arid I'm sure they will be missed by a great many people  on the Sunshine Coast Penin*  sula. However, we will be  thinking of you. So at this  time, Peg and I would like to  wish you, Mr. and Mrs. Grundy, good health/and good luck  in your move back to Vancouver,  Well, I see something coming. That moans j must sign  off for now. That's the end of  ed for peanuts, said the minister. Everything may be in order inside municipal boundaries but the hepatitis bug does  not observe these boundaries.  Growth and people create problems and a means must be  found to remedy the situation,  he said during last week's visit  to the Peninsula.  When districts have problems which are common to  each, artificial boundaries are  useles. The only effective way  to solve these problems, said  Mr. Campbell, is the formation  of regional districts designed  to cut across existing boundary  lines. In this instance the regional district would cover  Langdale to Earl's Cove,  Council for the R.D. would  consist of members, from the  two municipal councils and  representatives from the improvement districts and elect-  Oral areas. The basis of planning would be specified by letters patent. In this way each  district would preserve its  own identity but through the  regidhal council would solve  common problems such as. pub*;  lie health sewage and garbage  disposal; water," Library; and  fire protection.  Districts   must   amalgamate  on major- problems -before they st  become too  serious  as  in the::  St. Lawrence area where water pollution has reached alar-):  ming  proportions.  In reply to V  a question from Councillor Ben j  Lang,  the   minister  said  that  pollution was now in the. hands  of the  Minister of Water Re-;  sources who could enforce the  stablishment   of  efficent   sew--  age systems.  Replying to a query from Mr.  L, A. Fraser of Selma Park,  the minister said that there  had been an amendment to thc  Municipal Act, this year. Indian property within municipal  boundaries was subject to tax,  the leasehold being taxable.  Mrs. Isabel Dawson who accompanied the Hon. Dan Campbell said there were so many  Journey's end  HON.

As his family group travelled-  ' up  and  down  these  inlets  in  . their large canoes,^^BasU would  V be told names of points, bays,  streams   and   mountains,   and  ��� would listen to stories and legends-associated with these localities.  When  it  was  discovered that the boy was a living  "memory," he was made the  responsibility   of   all  the   vast  body-of lore of the ancient Sechelts.  During i his lifetime, Basil  saw most of the present village of Sechelt take place; and  took a hand in the shaping of  much of it. In 1890, he Witnessed the dedication of the first  large structure burned in 1905,  he was one of the men who  hand-logged timber to raise  money for the present building.  In 1892, he saw the arrival'  ;; of the first permanent trader  among his people; in that year  Herbert Whitaker opened a post  on the sandy-beached point  near Snake Bay.  ln 1895* the Sechelts constructed a flume to carry water four  and fev half'"miles' from Mission  (Chapman)  Creek  to  a  rescr-  ! voir above the village. By 1902,  [they replaced this flume with  ��� wood-stave pipe, and the Whl*  , taker buildings tapped into thc  , same system,.  In   1902,   Basil   Joe,   now   a  yoimg man, helped in the con:  assisted  financially  during  its  ^first^two years.  During his youth, Basil was  one of 40 boys and men to re-  ceive training in brass band in-  struments from Charles Ren-  nie, a noted instructor, who  was hired by- the Sechelts,-and  who lived at Sechelt for two  years for this purpose. When,  in 1901, the then Duke of York,  who later became King George  V, arrived at Vancouver on  the Empress of China, the Sechelt Brass Band was permitted to meet the entourage on  the CPR wharf, and to parade  to the Hotel Vancouver. Basil  learned to alternate among six  instruments in this b a n d  which, also in 1901, took first  honors in a Dominion band  competition held in New Westminster.  About 1922, he was sworn in  by Magistrate Walter Wray, at  Egmont, as Dominion Constables position he held some 30  years, until the arrival of the  RCMP. In his duties, he travelled with Constable Jack  Bartlett on the police launch  Iskum.        '���"  At about the same time, he  became the first Sechelt to  skipper a large fish packer.  ( His first command, the Gloria,  he operated out of a cannery  located in Green Bay, Nelson  Island. [He soon joined the B.C.  Packers, for whom he operated seine boats, and packers  without1 mishap for 38 years.

Mr. Wallace's" estimate was  based on the actual cost of local project in thV 1958" c*m-  tennial, and on the enthusiasm  shown by the present centennial committees throughout ,the  province in tackhng this phase  of their duties.  On all approved projects the  federal and provincial governments will contribute an  amount equal to $1.60 per capita, provided the community  raises another $1.40 per capita.  In 1958, Mr.'Wallace pointed  out, the local committees were  committed to raise an amount  equal to the provincial government grant. In actual fact,  the committees throughoutr British Columbia at that time  raised four times the amount  of the proyjnciaLgrants.   .  If the same formula applies  Mrs. C. Connor and Mrs. J.

Jack Davis reveals  pogSGl money avuikble  ^COAST-Capilano MP-Jaek Davis has recently been,seek- ^  ''     ing advice from. various people on! the peninsula  ,who in one way or another are connected'with community affairs.  - Federal legislation .now ex-  ists. whkh^oSers^onsiderabli  jfiaancraTMsistance.toward the  development of such areas as  the Sunshine Coast. Mr. Davis  feels a committee should be  formed to decide on and -submit  projects which might be eligible for  government  grants.  In a recent letter to The  Times, he says: .  I personally tlgink that we  can make greater use of the  Agricultural Rehabilitation and  pevelopment Act (ARDA) in  British Columbia. This is true,  particularly now that the emphasis is shifting away from  agriculture and towards the  redevelopment of rural areas.  Some agriculture, of course,  iiiay be involved. But other ru-  jral activities, notably fishing,  forestry and tourism, will also  be. embraced in the new.agree-  xents between Ottawa and the  provuices^As these are to go  into efiecOjegijuiiitg April 1,  1S65 >and will run forYrve-years,  they should be of real interest to multi-industry areas, like  the Sunshine Coast.  .Previously no- consideration  was given to Indian Reserves.  Now the activities of our native peoples can also' be included in the overall approach  which the Federal Government  is advocating towards the redevelopment on our rural communities.  In totals some $175 million  will be-available from the Fed-  eral Treasury for this purpose.  British Columbia's "_ha��ee, over the next five years* should  therefore be in the vicinity of  which has already been push-  $17.5 million. With a matching  number of dollars from Victoria, we could be well on our  way towards raising, the standards of Jiving in some of the  relatively," undeveloped parts of  British Columbia by 1970.  ���I As I say* in the accompanying letter; the first thing to do  is to*have an overall' economic  appraisal made of Sti��e prospects of the Sunshine Coast. As  this can be- paid for," largely,  if not entirely, by the Federal  Government, an early initia-1  tive should be taken in this  connection.  There is one key point to remember, however. ��� It is that  the initiative, in each case,  must come from-the province  concerned. A "grass roots"  committee, using whatever devices it' wishes, must get in  touch with its .representatives  in Victoria. They,- in turn, must  endeavour to get ��an overall  economic survey on the list of  ARDA projects which Victoria  believes should go ahead at the  present time. Ottawa can-turn  them down.
