' K/%  building' inspected,' ticks sufficient funds  to pay for ihe service. , - , ' .  r _5he- bsard originally -agreed to permit  1 the inspector 'to'assist the' Health Unit hy  carrying out septic tank inspections within  the district on mew buildings: The Begird  would then bill the Healtih Unit which could  pay when anticipated funds became avail'  able. This would be on a temporary basis  until April 1st.  > latest letter from the Regional Board  of Health indicated thait while funds ore  not available for any payment, it would be  appreciated if the service could be continued on an unpaid basis.  It was explained that tlie Board had  agreed to the arrangement following some  assurance that funds would be included in  the next Union Board of Health budget.  Also it was hoped to obtain approval for  an additional sanitary inspector for this  district -which would remove the burden  from the building inspector. This too appears to have dropped by the wayside.  " Clerk Charles Gooding told the board  "we are providing a service which if withdrawn would impose a hardship on (those  wishing to build for they will have to wait  for approval until such time the sanitary  inspector arrives."  Director Bill Scoular suggested that perhaps such a situation might speed up employment of an additional sanitary inspector.-  Director Cliff Gilker moved the Health  Department be advised that the building  inspector will be permitted to assist under  duress and that it is felt travel and other  expenses should be paid by the Health Unit.  Director A. Rutherford expressed the  view that "we- are going around in circles/  we have reached the deadline, why prolong it?" he asked.  Chairman Frank West agreed tbat a bill  should be submitted for services rendered  and it was decided to approve the motion  by Director Gilker but with an amendment  to that effect.  GIBSONS BYPASS  Planners for -the Village of Gibsons forwarded a map showing what is considered  to be the proposed route of the new Gibsons by-pass road from Langdale together  with the two alternative routes and the  effects of any one route on the village.  Main item of interest to the board related to what is believed to be the most  certain route which will cut in through the  rear- property of the Elphinstone High  SchooL Consideration was given to the-  need of either an overpass or underpass.  Director Fred Feeney told  the board  council of Gibsons is in process of holding  discussions on the situation with the platt-  -ners>~As at Tesftdt,' np furthe^ihction i$ ,to bo ~  taken by the board at this time.  Which has far exceeded a previous $1,500  budgeted for this' purpose. "  > '..The, engineers estimated a total of $5,000  which ^would include $1,000 for an access  wad |n order to bake 4io a vehicle.  Approval Was given a motion by Director* Gilker that a letter be forwarded MI*  Jack Davis seeking information regarding  assistance available* under the Water Development Act 'through which rural cont-  muciliies might obtain financial aid to develop an adequate water supply.

Approach Reg, Board ...  > Success  One gets tired after a night's whaling  expedition which ended many days  chasing whales from Powell River  down through Sechelt Inlet. Bert  Gooldrup and his wife Isabel, aboard  their boat Bonavista, are pleased  With tlie night's work.   While other  Record haul ...  Perider Harbour fishermen were preparing for the halibut season, Bert  and Sonny Reid were busy making  special gear to catch the whales. To  catch seven whales right in Garden  Bay was something no one expected.  Fishermen make history  net seven killer whales  CONSIDERABLE excitement has prevailed in the Pender Harbour area since  the capture last Friday evening of seven  killer whales at Garden Bay and now  safely penned in within a short distance of  the first catch of February 22. ���   ,  The,whales were spotted by Lloyd Davis .  who was alerted by poises m - do by the  first whale at about 9 p.m. On observing  the new arrivals in close proximity to the  captured wlwlo the cry went'out to Sonny  and Oeil Reid, licri Gooldrup nnd Bill  Cameron, who Were taking a rest after  seeking whales for the pasit 48 hours and  were attending a bowling banquet, .  Within a very short, time the fitihermen  were back on their boats and trapping the  monsters with their nets. It was nt firrt  believed tbe haul consisted of three but later they were able to ascertain their bei*  haul to dale included seven ran^ng from  two babies and five varying in sire up to  an estimated 20 feet.  pr.

HOWE Sound Farmers Institute vand other  organizations are expressing concern  regarding the incr-asing numbers of applications for lake shore leases which, it is  felt, .will in due course cut off all public  access.  -Regional Board Directors at the last  meeting of the b>ard discussed the situation after it was pointed cu't-by admuHstria-  tor Cnarles Gooding that the board took  action a year ago at which time it approved  such an application conditionally.  Dt was moved at that time that until  roads���, are established, existing .Jogging  roads, now providing, public access, be  maintained as such with ah allowance of  6S feet in width and that any other tracks  or footpaths ih present use by the public  be maintained as such.      ,  This was to be considered as standard  ruling When granting permission for leases.  Director Cliff Gilker explained that Hie  particular lake referred to by the Farmers  MsWtu'tc has been the location for a number of lease applications lately and should  they go through it is feared public access  wttll be cut off compleftoly.1 "I feel we have  to protect'the rights of the public," he  added.  Regarding the large nunrfber of suc,h  applications presently advertised in"the  press, the clerk explained that any such  applications if approved by Victoria, still  have to come before the board and as few  Have yet arrived, it is assumed the Lands  Branch has already turned thorn down.  GARBAGE DUMPS  Although only in operation for a short  period of time, problems already exist with  the Sechelt garbage dump and available  funds do not permit any substantial improvements at this time,  Mr. Gooding reported th'at tlie present  dump area is almost full, "the refuse needs  burning and pushing back. 1 have arranged  for a 'cail' to go in next week and carry  this work o.l but work on this dump is  unfortunately limited by funds available,"  he tfaid.  Regarding the Pender Har-our dump  which has so far cost $2,000, he explained  tWat due to the cost of developing II, and  difficulties, in getting collection underway,  it is anticipated that the budge-ted amounl  for garbage sMc development will bc completely expended next month,  $B00 of the total cost Involved a trurvcy  w.jlch Director Gilker said he considered1 to  bo "���Way out". Director Adele de Lange  rtatcd that this was the amount estimated  when the old Garbage Committee were  Investigaling garbage disi>osa!.  .,..*.  budget layout.  Welcomed by,-Directors, of course,- is the  fact that attendance at Committee meetings  nUay now be, paid for.  CONVENTION  Members of the "board will be attending  the annual convention of B.C. Municipalities, held this year in Vancouver and  usually attended by wives of members also.  The three day event will be held in the  Hotel Vancouver from September 18th to  Ano'Eher convention/workshop will be  held for building inspectors May 1st to 3rd.  Directors agreed this would be of advah-  tlage to Board Inspector Fred Reyburn.  Director A; Rutherford, however, questioned the cOs't involved and also suggested the  Inspector be advised a report would be  expected on his return. He was assured  that this is usual pra__.e.  THE ANNUAiL report submitted by E   W.  Booth, president of St. Mary's Hospital  Society, shows present occupancy of the  hospital as 118 per cent.  Normal hospital occupancy is regarded  as 85 per cent, said Mr. Booth, proving  the dire need for additional bed accomodation.  The report also drew attention to the  financial statement which showed that 67.4  per cent of the 1937 hospital budget was  paid out for salaries and wages. This is  below the average for hospitals m British  Columbia, which is approximately 70 to 72  peX cent.  Landscaping of hospital grounds is being carried out with caution, in view of  anticipated expansion, said the president,  who also thanked administration, the medical staff, auxiliaries, HID No. 31, local  clubs and resident who so generously donated finances and time, making 1367 such  a success.  EXPANSION  J. E. Parker, chairman of expansion  and construction committee, reported that  plans and estimates are before BOUTS officials in Victoria and the committee is  * aw_i_ng.~aip{i-ov!al-��tO' go-4o.-wor.ri.ng. draw,..  ings preceding' calBHg~_f ^riders.'"  It "is almost certain that a plebiscite will  be held to authorize the borrowing of ne'e-  esslary money for the construction and  Mr. Parker expressed the hope that taxpayers will turn out and vote overwhelmingly in favor of the much needed expansion.  MEDICAL STAFF  Chairman of the medical staff, Dr. E. J.  Paeikau, in his report also stresses the urgent need for expansion which in future  Will be acute. The program of post graduate training is being continued and there  has been an increase p the medical staff.  Medical staff presently is comprised of  doctors W. Burtnick, J. Crosby', j\.yr.

Everybody arrivedvback  after a well needed holiday decked in a  dazzling array of spring colors. The halls  were filled with the pitter-patter of m'oc-  Casins and sandals. Elphie missed the  presence of some of our teachers this  week; guess the holidays were too mulch  Ear them! It made a soft week for the  students but that will probalbly be made  up for. We also missed the presence f  the senior secretarial girls who were oult  on job experiences.  An impromptu noon hour sport took  place this week. A couple of ambitious  students purchased a plastic bat and ball  and held a spectacular baseball game  which drew a curious crowd. .They played  in style  using shrubs,  bushes and  man  hole covers for bases. Everybody seeded  to enjoy this outdoor, sport rtather than  games inside as the weather has been on  our side this week.  Friday arrived with a bang, but we had  it easy. Everyone in the senior grades  werit to, see the movie "To Kill a Mockingbird.'*- Grades Eleven and Twelve went in  the morning, and Grades Nine and Ten  went in the afternoon. It was shown at  the Twilight Thealtre.  On Friday afiter school, there was a  falsje fire alarm when la couple of sporting  kids threw "dtps of water_at the, school just  to "help' but." Everyone c^n look forward  to next week, when we receive our report  cards on Friday, May 3. We hope nobody  gets grounded.

NEED FELT  Need for a proper recreation center and  convention hall on the Peninsula was in  evidence last Wednesday when the combined Hospital Auxiliaries hosted members  from the lower mainland and, Powell River.  Three chartered buses and private cars  conveyed the visitors to the Legion Hail  where a regional' meeting wtas convened.  They know of other groups who would  come if the facilities were available. Surely  the various groups could get together and  consider a center.  Think about it!  MAY QUEEN'S BALL  The May Queen's Ball has been revived  this year with Maurice Hemstreet as M.C.  Drop in at the Legion Hall between 7 and,  9 p.m. on May Day, watch the Mlay Queen'  lelad the grand march and see the little  folk do the honors.

Twenty guests enjoyed the  affair when Mrs. Alice Marsh and Mr.'Syd  Hammon won first prize. Second p.izes  were won by Mrs. B. Duval and Mr.  Gunnar Hanson. The crib tournaments will  resume on the first Saturday in October.

R. Peterson,  Minister of Education, said today that the  net result would mean an average increase  Of only 1.19 mills across the province and,  because of the increase in the home owner  grant, many residential property owners  would not feel even this nominal increase.  Because the new formula came into  force after the School Boards had prepared their 1968 budgets, the Minister  pointed out that the new budget procedures  could not be made wholly applicable in  1968. Nonetheless tbe piwincial grants to  the school districts had been calculated in  accordance with the new legislation. The  full impact of the new formula on budget  planning would not appear until 1969, the  Minister said.  INCREASED AMOUNT  The provincial government has provided  $120,000,000 for direct grants to school districts, an increase of $18,900,000, or 18.7  percent over the amount voted last year.  In addition to this amount, the government  has provided $5,440,000 on behalf of school  districts for teachers' superannuation and  $40,950,000 in home owner grants to reduce  local siehool taxes. The combined figures  make a total of $lfi_,390,000 in grants and  payments for school districts' education  "costs The government will provide a further $2,250,000 towards the cost of school  district and regional colleges.  In explaining bow the school boards  would be able to finance a $38.5 million  incre'ase in their 1368 gross budgets and  yet only require a modest increase in the  province-wide average mill rate, the Minister pointed out the provincial government  bad raised the Basic Education Program  (which is shareable) by $64.6 million over  19S7.  One oif tbe m'ost significant features of  the new formula is that the cost of the  basic education program, that is, the cost  which is being now recognized as eligible  for provincial grants, is more closely in  line with actual costs of the school districts.  GREATER AMOUNT  The effect of this is that a far greater  amount df school district costs is being  supported by the resources of tbe province  as a whole and not limited to the resources  of the individual school districts.  On the other hand, increased assessment \_lues throughout the province will  make tfae locgi tax levies more productive.  The net result is a $36.5 million expansion  in the gross budgets with a modest average  mill rate increase.  Mr. Peterson went on to say that since  a greater percentage of actual school districts costs is now included in the cost of  the basic education program, the basic  levy for 1968 has been set at 24.30 nulls as  comlpiared with 16.10 mills for 1567.  As against this, school district co��ts in  excess of the basic program have been  reduced from 11.95 mills on a province-  wide basis in 1987 to only 4.75 mills in  1988. The overall average mill rate, inclusive of operating and capital expenses,  on a provirice-wide basis is computed to be  31.21 mills for 1988 as compared with the  figure of 30.02 mills for 1967.  COMPUTED BEFORE  The provioice-wide average mill rate is  of course computed before the application  of the home owner grant, and tihe effective  levy on the residential property owner will  therefore be lessened accordingly.  The minor incre'ase of only 1.19 mills in  page 4  Big  project  Workers behind the Senior Citizens'  Housing Project were busy last week  mailing out 3,000 brochures with information on the governmentrapprov-  ed project.

WHO is the "fink" responsible for exposing tjs to the 'snooping, 3~d prying of the  "Royal Commission on the Status of Women?"  Women have connived and conspired for  years to project an image of themselves  as a down-trodden, underprivileged and  over-worked section of society, and unfortunately we have been so sucessful in creating this image that _b.e Royal Commission has been formed to reveal our pitiful  plight. We've worked diligently to convince the men that "woman's work is never done", and now some rat-finkers haye  squealed on us. Once the commission  starts investigating, documenting, recording, classifying, and analizing, our goose  will be cooked, and the gander will be a-  round making reprisals.  The reason women nave been so successful in deluding men that a woman's Jot  is unbearable, is that men know absolutely nothing about aforementioned lot.

MORE ABOUT . . .  �� .'Education finance  ���from page 3  the;provincewide average mill rate of 1968  is an, indication of the increased financial  assistance being provided to school districts under the new formula, the Minister  said:  In fact, he added, some one-third of the  school districts will have a decrease in  toWal school taxes. The other school districts will have increases ranging from  zero to a high of 4J& miHs in a few isolated  instances, dependent upon .the particular  circumstances in those districts.  Mr. Peterson said further that the increases in local school taxes for 19S8 are  extremely nominal in view of the increases  in school district budgeting.  For example, school district budg.ttdng  for teachers' salaries, which represents  some 70 percent of their operating costs,  increased from $142,085,397 in 1967 to  $163,615,380 in 1988^-an increase of $21,529,-  983 or~15.2"pe"rcent which is the equivalent  of 4.14 mills.  This increase represents not only the  employment of additional teachers required  as a result of increased pupil enrolment, it  alsto represents substantial increases in  actual salaries paid.  EVERYTHING POSSIBLE  In _0ndu~ionf*.Mr, Peterson said that  the provincial government is doing everything possible to assist school districts and  local taxpayers meet the rising costs of  education.  He pointed out that due to the increase  from $120 to $130 in the Home Owner Grant,  coupled with the decrease in school taxes  in some siohool districts a great many  residential property owners will find themselves having to pay less, and many no  more, in school taxes in 1968 than in 1967.  Also, he pointed'ou't that in spite of  criticism made in recent days the revisions  made to the education finance-formula wiill  ensure a. more equitable distribution of  provincial funds throughout the province,  and will help to provide equality of education opportunity to every j child regardless  of the financial wealth of the community  in which he or she resides.  -_-by Maurice Hemstreet <  BAD square dance neyvs!

So there you have it.  There is a lot of talk about May Day.  Various suggestions have been made for  improvements and the usual remarks from  those who sit black and let the other fellow  do the work. Then when the day is over  you will find them still complaining that  the day wasn't run properly at all. They  should find out just how much work is  involved in an undertaking like this. Now,  while others use t_e grapevine and gossip  sysltem I would like to give you my r'eas  on an improvement for Sechelt's May Day.  To start with, I have always thought  that a May Day was for the children. But  they seem to get pushed into the background and under the benches as the adults  take over by telling their young ones to  get ldslt or go run in a race, if there is one.  Well, after helping with tbe past eighteen  or so May Days, I will put my best foot  forward again. After this year I just might  travel around and see what other May  Days are like. Maybe they are all Hie  same. Once again, who knows wha* one  would fond out? Anyway, here is to the  best May Day Sechelt will ever see.  Cheerio for now.

Services ,such as. giving' entertainments,  writing letters, feeding patients, taking patients tor drives, etc., are provided. She  said that efforts are being made to interest  more men and more young people in tbis  work. Mrs. Magnusson of the Auxiliary, to  the Children's Hospital in Vancouver, discussed the work of her Auxiliary as clerical  workers, drivers, services in sewing and  mending, and as 'play ladies" to .he children.  Mr*. Black of the Powell Biver Auxiliary outHned the work of the Economy  Shop in that area. This.shop was opened  in April, 1966 and has carried on success-  larochecn for this convention was provided by the six St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliaries. Since the meeting .place w_s small  and the guests were many, it had been decided that a box. lunch would he most adequate. With this in^mind, ihe members of  the Boherts Creek area made and packed  over one thousand sandwiches, while Gibsons members -made cookies and Pert Mellon prepared individual cups of jelly dessert. Hot tea and coffee were served as  well.  1 Mrs. Joan Rowland of the Roberts Creek'  Auxiliary was in charge ,ef t^e lunch and  members of the Pender. Harteiir. Halfmsan  Bay   and  Sechelt Auxiliaries  contributed  greatly to the success of this convention  in making the plans and helping with the  arrangements. Mrs.- Betty Wil__ms of the  Seehelt Auxiliary arranged the lovely fk>w-  ers for the head table and the pretty decorations for the -lunch boxes! -Mrs. Eve  Moscrip, also of the Seehelt Auxiliary, was  chairman of the committee in charge of the  cenvetuion and in her ustial capable manner attended to the many details of its  planning.   Frsm   the   many  compliments  received from our viators, it was evident  ttat the awfiliaries pf this area left Utile  room for doubt that anything -was lacking  by   way of hospitality on tbe Sunshine  Coast.  After lunch. Mrs-. Pattenden, president  dale in time to catch the 4:30 ferry,"* it was  necessary to cancel the proposed tour of  St. Mary's Hospital, much to the disappointment of most of those attending the  eenvention, especially the local members  who are so proud of our lovely new hospital  and its staff.  And then there was die woman who told  her husband, "Be an angel and .let me  drive."  He did and he is.

Government regulation restricts us to a  three-year projection for any , one frefer-  endum. i  v <  T^e n_��.<step involves the preparation  of ed-caifiooal specifications and the initial  discussions "wi'tb the architect. This is the  nwst impirtant part of the enlire procedure and' may take several months. Here  we atteimpit to sett out guide lines for the  aw__tedt. to describe the school and its  use as we see it. It is not a matter of  Saying to the architect: "We want a school  wG'% 15 teaching areas. You produce some  sketches." It's far more complicated than  tbis and a lot cf study is necessary at this  stage to save time later on and to make  sure that the design when produced will be  functional and -economical. This initial  study stage is done by committee.  It may be necessary for the board to  consider a site for a new school, or additions to existing schools. Again, this can  be time consuming. A good site may be  available but it may be too expensive and  involve negotiations with the owner. Some-  jBimes a board may have to resort to expropriation and where this is necessary,  legal procedures can take up a good deal  of time.  Where a site has been selected the  board may take an option on it.  This is approximately where we are  now���determining a site for a possible new  secondary schooL Until this is done, the  anohitedt cannot go too far with sketch  p'lans, beicause the nature of the site will  determine to some degree the kind of  building that goes on it.  As soon as the site has been determined,  the architect can go full speed ahead with  sketch p.ans and preparation of estimated  building costs. These have to be approved  by Victoria and may bave to be revised  several times. This sketch plan and estimating sltage for a project like this will  probably take two or three months. Tt  could take longer.  Once the department has accepted the  sketches and estimates, the board may  determine a referendum date.  _.tejr the ratepayers have approved the  building program, a one month's quashing  penod is required by law during which  time any person can question the conduct  of (the referendum. '  (The  next stop  is  the   preparation  of  working drawings and specifications. These  ust be approved bv the board and by the  epatflment.   The length of this stage  is  ainly up to the architect but it is estimated that it will take another two to three  months.   When completed the-board with  i .  ptobahly be sometime in 1970' before we  could moye students info' a p9JKp!..te_,<  furnished, and equipped building.1     '       (  Man to iinan, ,oultside phone booth: "It  seems as if it's going to be quite a long  conversation.

Four years Hater, he travelled west to  Vancouver and tackled a variety of" jobs  including working on herring boats" and  ccal mining in the Brechin mine'atJNaiJh  aimo where tunnels ran ieven~7taifes%i8er  the sea and miners could hea'r ihe #u$ob  of the steamers whkch passed overhead- He  sailed on the Union Steamship fun to  Alaskla and logged in the forestts.  In 1910 he married Jensine Henrietta  Krait also from Norway. They 'settled in  Vancouver. Having served with the artillery in Norway, Mr. Olsen was an experienced powder man arid signed three contracts for developing the road in South  Vancouver. He looks back with pride on  Ins work of opening up the roads from  Main to Ontario Streets.
