On the question of instructions issued  recently by the board advising owners of  property hooked to the sewer line to disconnect by July 31, 1987, and including the  apartment building on School Road^. Mr.  Gooding said that in practice it is generally  considered difficult to enforce disconnec:  tion. He also advised council that as consideration is being given to a village sewer  system, work should be started now on preparation of a sewer bylaw in order to hold  a plebiscite during the elections.  Comm. Wally Peterson drew attention  to the fact that a substantial sum is to be  spent this year on roads which will be all  cut up again should council yjstall sewers  next year. "We will have an awful mess  for a year or so," he added.  The commissioner also pointed out that  the resultant tax increase will prove quite  a hardship to retired residents who already face increased water rates.

Chairman questions amount  assessed by regional dist.  /  GIBSONS Kinsmen plan a long-term park  improvement project and has asked  council to consider an annual grant in order  to enable the club to acquire playground  equipment and renovate exisiting facilities.  It was pointed out that members greatest  contribution would be in labor but the club  will put $100 into the project plus 40 per  cent of funds raised through the park and  10 per cent of funds raised by other means.  Based on a five-year plan, proposals include, repair and extension of fences with  plans to isolate traffic in certain areas,  and improved parking in others.  Dugouts will be removed from the backstop and a concession stand built. Decorative trees will be planted for beautifica-  Uon purpose; picnic tables will be provided  together with park benches; two for the  tennis courts and -fcuf^-or .the"* -checker  board. Reconstruction of the rest room  will take place, along with installation of  durable toilets- and sinks. Other projects include build flag pole; reconstruct stage  bottom and repaint; build two water drinking fountains, and a number of other small  improvements, all costly and labor consuming.  Playground equipment is planned to include slides, monkey bars, v> merry-go-  round,  pcol-fihcv,or, checker board, honio-  ���vjv K+  shoe pitch and swing-around.  It was also planned to erect a log archway arid gate with the donor's plaque and  "Kinsmen Park" carved on cross piece.  This, however, failed to gain approval of  Village Chairman Wes Hodgson who said  it had been requested that a cairn be  erected commemorating the original donor  of the park.  This was questioned by Comm. Jim  Drummoncl who said he had no recollection  of any such clause.  Kinsman James Cramer, appeared before council to speak on a well-prepared  brief and to a question by the chairman  as to whether there has been any consideration to obtaining an income from the  park, replied, "No, it will all be free." He  added that other means* of raising funds  were avaiiabie^such as a; carnival, - etc. <  The chairman commented that it might  be advisable to write the synod for its  views regarding a cairn. Comm. Drummond argued there had- never been anything in writing on this subject. Comm.  Wally Peterson, however, said he saw nothing wrong in a cairn.  It was agreed that council will support  the ideas suggested for development^of the  park and Mr. Cramer thanked for his excellent presentation of the brief.  each school.  Scholastic standing,  character,   attitude  to work and financial need of the appli-.  cant will all have a bearing on-,��� selection.  SECHELT Village Chairman Bill Swain  expressed surprise in learning the village has been assessed at $838 as its por-  jtion of the regional district's annual budget requisition.  ,, , Asking, .''what Jfor" ; the ^chairman said:  Gibsons Council  meets in Wilson Creek  Hall will have  a combined service of the Sunday School-  and church at 10:30 a.m. on Easter Sunday, March 26.

Peterson, expressed.���,the  view that floats were actually needed arid  that if looked a.ter properly there is no  reason why they should not last 10 year's.  ��� Commi Jim Drummond commented that  floats have proved costly, and, ih fact, are  a continuing expense.  Comm, Peterson argued that very little  remains in community events ahd that  what is left should be retained if possible.  , Comm, Goddard said he would look into  Council approved expenditure "6f"up to  $300 for this purpose. It also agreed to  donate $50 to the fire department in order  to a'ssi-t members wishing to attend instruction at fire departments in Vancouver.  ... ^Explaining problems involved in dropping hoses over the, whlirf^Comtn, Feeney  asked that,-.council' write' to the federal  public works dept. asking that a permanent fourvinch..suction pipe be installed at  the whafifv Council so moved.

The  clerk explaned that as the village has agreed to participate in certain functions, it  was simply being assessed its share of ad-  ministratipn, garbage disposal site, etc.y'It,....,..;..  is no different to the school district and  hospital improvement district requisition,"  he said.  Chairman Swain replied that he appreciated   the  village   might   be   expected   to  pay part of the cost of a garbage site but ���  still felt the assesstnent was too toghT;  Comm. Morgan Thompson argued that  we are part of the district and certainly  cannot say we are a little island; "We are  paying only a small, part of it," he said.  The  ch_irman said he was simply  attempting to get things straight in his mind  _��s to exactly what we are paying for.  The clerk outlined the situation and  added.that he estimates, the assessment  will be less thap one mill.  ::airpdrt: 7.^7^.73^7yy,^ -.... ...,;..-���.,..   Comm. Thompson, reporting on the airport, said a proposed meeting with the airport committee failed to materialize; "We  turned up but Gibsons Commissioner Jim  Drummond was not around," he said.  Comm. Lauritz Hansen expressed the  view that as Secheit is but a third the size  cf Gibsons and, apparently, a poor neighbor, larger share of the airport, up-keep  should be paid'by Gibsons.

PARK CLEANUP  Comm,, Thompson advised that .members of the Kinsmen club were to hold a  . workbee at Hackett Park and would reno-'  vate the backstop. 'Following a comment  by Comm, Hansen that an old concession  booth was *\n eyesore,which Mr. Joe Benner had failed to remove as promised,  Comm.'.Thompson said the Kinsmen would  probably remove the building during tho  work session. ., , ���  Attention was also drawn to an old toilet building at the park which was also to  havo been removed by a former commissioner,  H,  Lnng,  It was  pointed  out tho  , building Is  not actually on village  prop-,.

APPLIANCES'- HARDWARE  HOME FURNISHINGS  MR. JO-IN Sear, who celebrated his 84th  birthday on February 18, was born in  Wednesbury, Staffordshire, Englandr���-but  moved with his family to Birmingham at  an early age. He has spent most of his.life  in the building trade. As a young man; his  hobby was cycling ahd he has pedalled  over many miles of the English countryside. <  At the age of 23 he emigrated to Canada and worked on construction for a few  months in Winnipeg and Calgary. It was  a very different Calgary from that of today,  for where the city now stands, in 1906 he  saw nothing but buffalo wallows. He continued on to Revelstoke and the further  west he travelled, the better he liked the  look of the country. When at least he  reached the west coast he had no doubts  at all���this was where he would make his  home. '        '  Since those days, be has travelled to  far places and seen other lands, biit he has  always returned to the B.C. coast, for he  has found no place that suits him better.  As it had always been Mr. Sear's wish  to see something of the Orient, in 1908 he  signed up as ship's joiner one one of the  old Empress boats and made four' trips to '  China and Japan. When war broke out in  1914, he was living in Victoria/ He joined  the medical corps and was in France by  May 1915. He served in Lemnos where he  helped' tend the wounded from the Dardanelles campaign, in Alexandria, Egypt and  in Salonika:     ;   "  In a run-down condition after contracting malaria, he was sent back to England  to work in a hospital in Hastings. It was  there he met his. future wife, Lillian, who  was working with his unit - as a stenographer. She was born in London and when  the 1914 war came, she joined the St, (  John's Ambulancecand served as a stenographer at the Fort Pitt Military Hospital  at Chatham and the Hastings Military Hospital. They were married at one of England's old historic churches, St. Margaret's  at Barking, Essex.  Returning to Canada at the end of the  war, Mr. and Mrs. Sear settled for a time  at Sidney on Vancouver  Island  and  then  for nine years made their home at Yakima  in  the  state  of  Washington  where   their  three   children   were   born.   Returning   to  Canada, they lived in North Vancouver for  the next 19 years,  Mr. Sear spent some  "time constructing  a  store and warehouse  for the Hudson  Bay  Company in Ye]low-  Tinife, NWT. Yellowknife at that time was  just a tent town. With the advent of the  Second World War, he was,refused for the  army, so'"went into  the  shipyards  where  he worked until his retirement in 1948.  I   '   Mr, Sear built his.''retirement, home >at  Roberts Creek singiohanded.  In a. perfect  selling, close to the sen, it is planned so  that almost every window frames one of  nature's   masterpieces. t There,   Mr,   and  Mrs,  Sear have spent 16' of the happiest  years of their lives, They  have  made  a  pleasant  garden  and   they  have   enjoyed,  adventuring in < their I2rft. boat, in which  they have made several trips to Vancou-i,  ;  ver. ,   .;''.,.      .. ���,.' . :   ... ..���, .   .../.,.

Guest speaker, Canon Minto Swan, who  has travelled extensively and knows a  great deal about Canada and its people,  cited many incidents of loyalty, tradition,  culture, temperament, virility and laissez-  faire virtues of the people. He terms Canada a country of 10 provinces and six empires.  This being centennial" year, he "urge-  people to visit other parts of Canada and  get to know the country better.  COLLIN Hannay, well-known Vancouver-  born explorer, adventurer,- mountaineer  and photographer will show the fabulous  color film of._Ms_____edition to the land of  the ancient Maya at four centres'on the  Sunshine Coast in April. He is no newcomer to this area.  Having sailed the coast since his youth,  Mr. Hannay bought property in Madeira  Park in 1948 and his mother, Mrs. Leta  Hannay lives at Welcome Beach. As the~  represenative for the last four years of  United Investment Services Ltd., Mr. Hannay is becoming well-known over the whole  district.  ( It was on a photographic expedition to  the ancient stone cities in Mexico which  have been rediscovered by western civilization only in the last 100 years that Mr.  Hannay heard from pilots flying over the ���  Guatemalan rain forest that they had  sighted people living in small isolated  groups, in the jungle. The possibility that  these forgotten people hidden away in the  tropical jungle behind the vast barrier of  mountain ranges could be descendants of  the once-proud Mayan race, fascinated  him. This early civilization developed  great architectural skills some 3,700 years  ago and their calendar was based on knowledge quite as accurate as our own today.  They lived in stone-built cities planne'd on  a grandiose scale with terraces, plazas,  sunken courts, palaces and temples, embellished   with   carving,   satuary   and  in  scriptions,  Collin Hannay returned to Vancouver to  finance and equip an expedition. The film  he will show is the astonishing story of  this journey into forgotten times, of how  by plane, mule and dugout they fought,  their . way through dense tropical rainforest. This is1 the country into which the  Spanish conquistador Cortes sent an entire  army to jts doom. Not a single man returned.  ,"    '  ' Collin Hannay and his companions iound  the people they sought, small, dark-  skinned, skilled hunters and fishermen living a happy, self-sufficient life adapted to  their jungle surroundings. Only the fine, :  gentle features of their faces link them  with their ancestor's forgotten empire and  one is struck by their resemblance to  ancient drawings and sculpture.  Mr. Hannay made friends with one  small group and lived with them, recording their daily life, the sights and sounds  of this stone-age village.  Sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Arts  Council, Mr. Hannay will show his film,  interesting artifacts and answer questions  about his .exciting expedition and future  plans in Port Mellon, April 4, Pender Har-,  bour, April 5.

To give credit where due. attempts  have been made on a comparatively small  scale bv groups and individuals to smarten 'them up. but considering they are all  we have to offer, both councils'-have lagged badly in failing to provide something  . much better.  In Gibsons, much of what has been  accomplished has been due to the efforts  of the Kinsmen who have been restricted  bv shortage of funds and. at one time,  low membership. Much of this has been  overcome b\ an increased membership  although funds are still low.  Coincidental!}", Kinsmen of both  Gibsons and Secheit are presently for:  mulating plans for their respective parks.  In Secheit a small membership plans renovation of the back-stop and bleachers  together-with.Other clean up jobs. In Gibsons a rather more ambitious project is  planned for complete re-vamping which  <on a five year basis will provide the district with a ,park to be proud of. This to  some extent will depend upon financial  support of council but as this will be small  for value obtained it is logical to assume  they will go along with the Kinsmen.  Cost of playground equipment-has  proved rather mor^e costly than anticipated but Commissioner Ray Clarke of  Secheit has pushed a very good case for-  such expenditure with the result council  has approved certain expenditures to this  end. /. .  Certainly these facilities are badly  needed and it is no credit to past councils  that so little has been spent on the parks.  However, both councils appear to be interested in making amends and,it is to be  hoped they will each play their part in  providing safe and pleasant play areas  for the youngsters of the area.  Great credit is due the service^lubs  for the part they play an<_ we are indeed  fortunate in having men who are prepared to give so much of their time and  labour toward the welfare of the commuj  nities.

The announcement will also fire the  imagination of many fast-buck seekers,  all out to get in on the ground floor, and  all loaded with an incredible variety of  fabulous projects.  Trump cards, however,would appear  to rest with the Indians, considering property involved is Indian reserve, and it is  the -Indians with whom any such deals  will have to be discussed and approved.  Fortunately, our Indian neighbours  at��.bv no means stupid; indeed, there is  little doubt the present council includes a  number of young men who have every intention of dedicating their efforts to the  welfare of their' people. Consequently,  we may rest assured, any deals struck  will not be for the personal benefit of a  handful of people but to the advantage  of the Indian village as a whole.  With this in mind, we draw attention to a.feature in this week's Times on  h. thriving boat works at Garden Bay employing twelve local men. The. proprietor  has indicated his interest in re-locating ih  the Secheit area with the_object of establishing a larger business. Establishment  of a breakwater therefore offers up an  excellent opportunity to bring a. badly i  needed industry into the area, and one '  which could employ a number of Indians.  This is not a proposition to be cast  aside lightly, neither is it likely that really  worth-while, projects such as this will  come on a silver plate. They have to be  gone after for nothing worth having comes  easy and if they are worth having they  are worth working for.  . Amount of money budgeted for the  breakwater is) by no means a large sum,  it will, nevertheless, be a start and it is  obyioMs the f>raiect once started will be  completed regardless. Itcould very well  herald a major advance for both' the Indian Village and the community as a  whole providing ownership and leasing  of key property is handled wisely.  At this time the cards are stacked in  favour of the Indians, it is to be hoped  they play them well.

Work  By Mike Blaney . . .  AM Canadian Conference  irstin union  LAST SUMMER, our . union, the. International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and  Paper Mill Workers, which, represents the  more than 400 union employees at Port  Mellon, was beset with turbulent internal  problems. At one point these problems became so intense that they threatened the  effective production at Port Mellon, and  consequently the economic stability of our  community. Realizing our responsibilities  to both our members and the community,  we made every effort to maintain a united  membership.  the subject which created such" vehement factions within our union was on the  matter of Canadian autonomy. For those  not familiar with our organization, we are  an international union. That is. it is composed of both U.S. and Canadian locals:  While BiC. is _ a distinct region with its  own regional vice-president and while, as  Canadian members of an international  union, we have a Canadian "director, the  ultimate authority of our union's policy is  vested in the international Convention. In  matters of regional or local concern, we  enjoy an extremely high degree of autonomy.' .  The disruption taking place last summer was caused by many of our members desiring more, if. not complete, autonomy for the Canadian membership. The  irony in the feud was that nearly all our  members wanted more autonomy but differed only in. how to get it. We, of course,  1 wanted to attain this goal through the international .so that we could remain one  strong, large union, The breakaways, as  they were referred to, wanted to do just  what their nickname implies, which would  have resulted, in our opinion, in the estab-  story  lishment of yet another small, inadequately  financed union.      ��� ���   ..   .'\  While most of lis sympathize with some  of the ."breakaways". (Pulp and Paper  Workers of Canada) goals, we could not  agree with their means of achieving them.  We must, however, thank them for illuminating to us the desires of our membership.  As a result of the problems created by  our desires for more Canadian autonomy,  and as a result of other problems peculiar  to,Canadian Jocals of the Internatipnal, an.  All-Canadian conference has been scheduled.  This conference will be composed of all  the Canadian locals within our international union and will be the first such conference ever held in our union's history.  The conference will discuss the whole  question of Canadian autonomy along with  many other particularly Canadian problems and will make recommendations to  the international convention for ratification. The international convention will not,  or had better not, turn down any majority  recommendations from this conference.  The conference. will be held in Ottawa  on March 22, 23, and 24. Delegates from  this.local will be, Larry Labonte, George  Hostland Jr., and Mike Blaney.  As you can see, we are endeavoring to  satisfy the wishes of our membership and  are in turn keeping- the welfare, of this  community foremost in our minds.  f.

Bonnie hopes to have her  work printed this summer.  Another centre of interest was'the industrial education shop where the boys  were working on various projects. Some  of them wereworking; oh^'hiolds for khife  handles, some were Sharpening knives they  had almost finished and others were filing  e  aluminum handles  previously  molded.  Here, too, were tables, bookstands/  stools and aluminum door knockers shaped  like anchors. Tea was served in the home  ec. room by Judy Nygard and Jo Sund-  quist. Cookies were made by the Home Ec.  class.  This   week  I   wish  to. tell you  a  little  about   Mrs.  Whittaker's   background.   Mrs.  Whittaker  is  our commerce  and   English,  teacher.  She was born in Vancouver and,  began -her schooling at Porpoise Bay. The  school her father helped build there is still  standing.    She   finished    elementary    and  high  school  in Calgary.  Upon  graduating  from high school she  attended commerce.,  school for a year before returning to Vancouver to obtain her degree at UBC. After  graduation    from    UBC    she    taught    at  Irvine's  Landing school,  leaving there to  be   married.   Raising   a  family  filled  the  intervening years to five years ago when  she returned to-full time teaching.  Since there has been quite a, lot of  news about the psychedelic and hallucinatory drug LSD in colleges and recently in  high schools, I thought I'd ask the students  in our school their views on the drug. In  answer to the questions "Under medical  supervision would'you take LSD?" I received the ensuing replies: Eleven unqualified No. "1 think it's awful." "I guess not."  (sarcastically). "I think it's stupid."  "I've never been drunk so why take LSD?"  "I don't know,"- "Wouldn't touch the stuff."  "I don't think so." "I doubt it,"j (sarcasm  again). Nineteen of the 21 people' asked  were emphatically against it,  ' One student said under supervision she  would take it and one student told me tho  fpllowing; "I was at an LSD party and  everyone was having a ball. I think it's  ihe greatest stuff ever," I don't know whether she was kidding me or herself.  Personally, 1 don't think anyone should  use psychedelic drugs excopt medicinally  ������that'is to treat cases of extreme schtao-  phrenla and other mental disorders,  1 think many of these who go on "trips"  are more to bo pitied than condemned.  They appear to mo to be poor, misguided  people who feel Insecure nnd Inadequately  equipped to face the problems and tensions'  of our world today, Thoy nro unsatisfied  with the imago thoy present to tho world  nnd want dospnrntoly to find tho dynamic,  confident person thoy long to bo. It is n  pity thoy do not realize that to bring about  thin chnnuo thoy thom.solyos must do It.  Psychedelic drugs cannot uncover A flashing wit or n powerful chnrnetor. It requires  something more thnn 'trips' to do thnt.  Calendar of events  Jobs-Demolay  ON Marfrh 14 a dew niember, Faye Reid of  Roberts Creek was initiated into the  Bethel.

Christmas Seal funds  drou in Secheit area  DURING the Christmas Seal campaign  public-spirited British Columbians ' donated more than $347 thousand to battle  tuberculosis in the province and to discover other significant chest disease.  Fins and Tails  ���by Tom Porter '  A FEW public-minded, conscientious residents have taken the tiger by the tail  over in C.hemainus on Vancouver Island."  They are beginning to raise a stink about  the stench, make waves over the effluent  being dumped into the sea and, for the  betterment of all, take small bites at the  hand that feeds them. Their target���the  pulp mill, their objective���to clean it up.  The^ght that, these people hav�� on. their  hands is a dandy, almost a job for "Mission Impossible." The pulp mills through^  out B.C. cannot be blamed for the indis7  criminate dumpings of wastes and the pollution of the air we breathe; the blame  rests with our governments. After all, the "  mills are in business to make money and  if they can cut costs by limited pollution  control, you can bet your bottom dollar  they will. At the present time there is  little, if any, realistic or effective legislation in effect to control pollution here in  "Beautiful B.C." What laws there are on  the books have very little teeth in them  and even if they did I am afraid little  would be done to enforce them. The government's handling of the pollution of Buttle Lake by Western Mines Ltd. left a sour  taste in the mouths of Campbell River  residents,  I am not suggesting that Mr. Bennett's  government favors big business interests  but there seems to be a bit of back-bending  in this- case.,It strikes me as strange that  any governing body could say in effect:  "Western Mines���sir, you do not have to  prove that you will not pollute Buttle Lake,  the onus is on us to prove that you have.'  To me this is the same as closing the barn  door after the cow has gone. I am sure  that the, fish inhabiting the lake and the  humans j drinking the water will jump with  glee when an announcement similar to  "Oh my goodness, Buttle Lake is poisonous."  comes drifting out of Victoria.  Don't get me wrong. I am not against  industry or progress and I am not saying  that the political party presently in power  is wholly responsible. There have been  other parties at the reins in B.C. but unfortunately their foresight on pollution was  as limited as Mr. Bennett's appears to^tja.  What I am against is dirty air, scum-covered creeks, contaminated beaches and  game-absent forests.  Unless we who live, work and play  in Canada's evergreen playground wake up  to the fact that pollution is with us, little .  . wilf bei"doner PoUution is hot inevitable or  necessary as a certain MLA would have us  believe, on the contrary, it can be controlled. SwedSn, for example, now has its  pollution problem almost licked arid they  did it by the only means possible���legisla-  . tion.      ���; '       _    './.:";  It is almost impossible to expect the  pulp mills, mines, smelters, factories and  logging companies to control this ntengce,  although it would be tremendous public  relations. Responsibility of effective pollution control rests entirely on the shoulders  of you, John Doe Public. If jrou don't mind  breathing poisonous'gases, drinking polluted water and watching our fish and game  disappear then rest assured that Victoria  will carry on as before and nothing will  be done. If, you do mind, then all it costs  is a nickle stamp and 10 minutes of your  time to drop a line to your MLa. Your letter will be read and answered and even if  it does not bring immediate results at least  you will be doing something constructive. ���  If enough of us write, then something will  be done before it is too late.  *   *' *  With old man weather dishing up a  heavy cdurse of sou'-west winds this past  week, fishing slowed, down somewhat, but  to Maurice Webb of New~ Westminster it  was the best week of his life. Early Tuesday morping, Maurice, Paul Hansen and  myself headed up to Bargain Harbour in  search of springs. Up to then the biggest'  ' Maurice had taken was around 10 pounds.  After an hour or,,so of little action, he hooked into the beauty pictured here! It weighed in at exactly 19 lbs. Me? I got skunked  and' lost four bits.

Triumph and disappointment  hits Peninsula ball teams  m^^^MtA  IT WAS a weekend of triumph and disappointment for the local soccer kids.  Triumph for the Residential Totems who  beat Powell River Creamers 2-0, disappointment for Secheit Legion and Pegasus  F.C. who were defeated in their bid to become District Champions.  The Totems played good fast soccer  which has seen them come through the  season so"'far without adefeat. The Powell  River kids played a good brand of ball and  the Totems had to work for the win right  down to the wire. Laurie Gabriel put'Totems one up on a high blooper that just  sneaked in under the bar. Play went from  end to end but the Totems looked the more  dangerous. The score stood at 1-0 at the  half.  After the interval the local lads 'seemed to sense victory and played some real  good soccer. They were rewarded by a goal  from John Dick to make it 2-0. Brenie  August missed on a penalty kick when he.  hit it right at the goal keeper. They, more  or less controlled the play\/fo the final  whistle to become District Champions of  the Powell River District. Next opponents  for  the   Totems   is   the   Burnaby   District  Champs, and if they are to go ahead they'll  really have to hustle. Outstanding for the  Totems was Robert Paul the fiery little  right half who played his heart out.  Things weren't so happy in the Pegasus  camp. They took on the Eagles ih Ambleside Park and literally died on their feet.  It was the biggest game of the season and  the 'Pegs' played the worst game they've  turned in this year, By half time Eagles  had them down 5-0, and it was a pitiful  exhibition. They allowed this big Eagle  team to .walk over them without, even so  much as a challenge. The game ended in  an 8-2 drubbing; they got two late goals  in the last twenty minutes but you don't  give any team an eight goal lead and expect to pull it o(it in the last few minutes.  It was a shame for them to go down so  badly after what has been a very successful season. The boys have played some excellent soccer against some very good  teams. They'll be back next year better  than ever.  Secheit Legion's bid for the District  Champidnship in Div. 7 ended in defeat.  They dropped their game to Powell River  by a score of 5-0. Their opponents were  much bigger bolys and had more experience. The Legion kids have nothing to be  ashamed of, this is their first season in  organized soccer and they have made a  good debut h.v earning the right to represent us in this game. The coaches have  done an admirable job and have every  reason to be proud of their -boys, -,-���-������  This amounts to $8,048.99 more than the  final figure last year which was $339,217,42. other repon^  Official figure for Secheit shows a drop Keep that line in the water and I'll sec  of $190.82 in,donations this year. you ncxt week.   , .

'���#-"�����-j- *!*���_���v-��d'  The PeninsulaTimes Pafa^tz  Wedn^dfoy; March 22, 1967    j  Egmont Eye  ���by John Dunlop  AS THIS column goes to press a union-  supported tie-up of B.C.'s trawling fleet  will probably be -in effect over a 'dispute  in the way which crews are paid. I do not  propose to suggest whether the Vessel Owners' Association or the crew members are  right or wrong in this dispute as my real  concern is only for the effect it might have  on local ling-cod fishing operations. A concern that is expressed daily by local cod  fishermen who fear that a continuance of  the tieup might eventually lead to a strike-  that would in tujp affect local operations. '  The Ung^cod^sherman wfio fishes, fo*,  and depends upon.ltije��5fresh fish market  for his daily living is iiideed the forgotten  man in today's inflatibnary economy. What  was at one time a "gainful and thriving industry, particularly in and- around the gulf  area, is now a haphazard and ill-paid segment of our fishing industry. There are  several reasons for this.  First and,foremost, in this, writer's opinion, is the lack 0S> consumer demand  about by the larg^tonnage of dragger-  caught dead cod, a product far inferior to  that produced by the individual* fisherman  and with the resultant, adverse effect on  the consumer's palate. Some 12 to 1.4 years  ago there was a growing demand for-fresh  ling, both on lower mainland tables and in  the California fresh fish market. This was  the result of an intensive selling job and  also due to the fact that the wholesaler  who handled most of the" gulf-produced cod  at that time realized that there was a vast  ^tfference-'between ling cod on packer day  and arriving in Vancouver within two days-  of the"kiliing at most, than in the same  fish which had been iced down in a fish  camp for three to five days prior to being  picked up. Ling cod. as most people are  aware, deteriorates, rapidly after killing;  as a result, live cod. as packer-day killed  codi was known in the trade, was in demand and received a higher price than  that paid by the company for dead cod.  A difference of at least two cents per  pound was always- in effect for live cod  until, another company came into the gulf  operation with a flat price for all ling cod  dead or alive.  This not only killed the fisherman's in-  centive to. liyejbox his catch.until packer  day; it also resulted in an inferior ^product  being sold in retail outlet^ with the resultant loss of consumer demand. As a seafood, there is nothing more tasty than  freshly killed ling cod, but let a poor grade  be served up���then ling cod has had it as  far,as the average family'is. concerned,  and this is,what happened with the advent  of dead and dfagger-cauglht cod on the  'consumer market. \   -������  Despite his greatly increased, cost of  living and cost,of boat and gear which have  likewise climber to greater heights than  gver before, the cod fisherman, receives  approximately the same prk'e per pound  for his product as he did a dozen or so  years ago. During the same period the retail price has risen by almost 100 per cent.  It is no wonder the cod fisherman is dissatisfied with his lot _nd that1 this once  thriving fishery is on its, way^sJQt! Being  but a small minority in the overall union  membership his voice is not heard. Seiners  and gillnet fishermen have many times  made their demands known with resultant  financial benefit to themselves, as have  the trollers on occasion, but who ever  backed- the cod fisherman in demanding a  more adequate return for, his efforts? No  one, not even himself.  BGMONT EYEDROPS  .The first two weeks of the current ling��  cod season have not been without incident  In local waters. Stan 'Sllvey. whose trailer  is sljll. undergoing repairs as the result  of being damaged in an untoward New  Year mishap, had to act quickly orie day  last week when the carburetor of a borrowed boat in, which he was cod fishing,  back-fired 'and set the engine on fire,'  Quick action with a handy ftrc-extlnguishcr  followed and Stan had the bla/.e smothered  before help arrived.

Who is right?
Editor, The Times:
Sir—The premier says that some municipalities are misusing government grants
and local government officials deny it.
My 'do it yourself' research reveals that
municipalities used to receive one-third
of the automobile licence fee revenue for
road and street improvement. This penalized municipalities with small automobile
registration figures and heavy through traffic to service, not to mention the driver
who was exposed to their trails. The premier replaced this inadequate distribution
with the per capita grant. This resulted-in
each municipality, having more than double the amount of money to be spent on
roads. How many municipalities are spending all of their per capita, grant on roads
and streets?
This is not a 'spend as you see, fit' fund •
and if it is being diverted to other projects
it is being misused. If someone in business,
a factory, union, a co-operative is given
money to purchase specific equipment and'
he takes it upon himself to spend it on
something else, no matter how good his
motives may be. he has misused the
money! Governmentst are in the same
Cities,  towns,   villages  ahd districts re- ■
ceive   about   S26.000-.000.00   in   per   capita
grants. Is it being spent -for road and street
improvement? If it isn't", why isn't it?
You have the facilities to secure and
print the local council's actual use of the
per capita grant . . . please do it. I believe the issue is -far too Important to be
used in the promotion of political bias. Inform us! Do a reporting job and give us
the facts.      ■     ' •
E.   R.  HAWKES.
Editor's Note—What is referred to as
the Municipalities Aid Act does not, in fact,
specify the grant apply to roads & streets.
However, by suggesting tounicipalities are
misusing government grants through failure to put the grant to this use, Premier
Bennett appears to have put himself in a
spot. Result .of which he has .hurriedly
pushed through an amendment which does
indeed specify that such monies shall be
first applied to constructiqn, repair or improvement to streets and roads within the
municipality then to other services -of a
kind for which the municipality does not
receive provincial grants or which" are not
included in provincial-municipal shared-
cost programs. This amendment is not, as
yet, part of the legislation.
Squaringly Yours
—by Maurice Hemstreet
DUE   to  the fact  that  my   get-up-and-go
seems to have got up and left completely, square dance news will be short
and to the point today.   '
The kid's squares on Friday nights are
climbing the ladder of successful square
dancing, with a determination to become
top square dancers, and more power to
then^They may be a small group, but in
my estimation, they are' doing something
worth while.
Dancing on Good Friday will be cancelled but the following Friday will be
back to practice, that's the 31st of March.
Friday, April 17th, we will be on stage.-
The. Secheit Promenaders • will be cancelled next Sat. night due to Easter weekend and their next dance will be held at
St, Hilda's Hall, April 8th,. same time.
This could be the lastfsquare dance of the
season for the Promenaders, depending oh
the wishes of the dancers, so 'keep" an eye
on your Peninsula Times. 	
This brings us up to the big square .
dance of the year and that is the Centennial Reunion' at the Roberts tireek Hall
April 1st, 1967, Gates open at 8:00 p.m.
for a full evening of easy level square
dancing, with fun in store for all.
