Discussing the Regional Board's decision  not to seek approval of the electorate until (more information is obtained, Mayor  Fred Feeney expressed the opinion that  the Regional Board should have givep a  more definite answer to the request that  it take over airport management as a  function.  Council agreed at last week's meeting  to place the matter under unfinished business and present it again in the future.  Mayor Feeney stated that the whole  Peninsula benefits from the airport and  Council would still participate in airport  maintenance.  Regarding the question of ownership of  the facility, the .Mayor stated that the strip  is on leased Crown land. Airport Committee has control of it tout does not own  it. The caretaker's house 'will be paid for  this year, Gibsons and Sechelt Council  grants wore raised from $750 to $1,250 each  to pay for the house.  RESOLUTIONS  Council approved two resolutions: Sanitary Inspector's approval must be obtained before a building permit lis issued, where  a disposal field is involved.  With future proposed subdivisions, plan-  must be approved for subdivisions by the  sanitary inspector before council considers  them.  POTENTIAL  ASSET  Legal advisor of J. Unland notified1  council that with improvements his property could become an asset to the viMafge.  Aid. Wally Peterson commented that it is  up to the owner to present a plan approved by the, isanitary inspector, to council.  It was a'greed that Mr. Upland first obtains the authority for a building permit  together with plans and a certified cheque  for $500 be submitted to the village office  by November 1st. The building must conform with the National Building Code. The  cheque will be a performance bond and  building must be completed wSJthin 90  days of receiving the permit.  COMPLAINT  Aid. Wally Peterson drew council's at-  tension to. a newly enforced regulation  whereby ferry passengers are being left  behind at Langdale even though the Sunshine Queen is not loaded to capacity.  Council agreed to enquire into toe situation.  RECREATION GRANT  Letter from Community 'Programmes  Branch notified council thalt disb-indment  of Regional Recreation Commission means  that individual grants wil now be available  to local recreation groups. Council agreed  to  contact  Gibsons lAtmeiic  Association  with regard to it becoming the recognized  ermen  West Canadian Graphic Industries Ltd.,  16pfr ��test- 5th-Ave..- - ���  -  ���Wncouver_9�� __L��C.

CONFUSION -     '  Council was somewhat mystified to  learn tbat cedar ^signs placed- on tbev recently completed restroojns in Gibsons, had  been removed already. The signs had been  firmly secured by drilling into the mortar.  Council decided that confusion/will not_be  too drastic as identification has been painted on t|ie door.  DOOMSDAY  Last Friday was a 'black day for wayward canines in Gibsons for lhe dog cat>  cber^commenced duty. Dags' running-af-  large in the Village may be impounded  and disposed di within 72 hours.

Paul Hellyer which is investigating the housing crisis in Canada.  The committee will visit Victoria on  Novmber 6 and Vancouver on November  7 and 2 and' invites submission of briefs  from anyone who can contribute ideas or  suggestions to alleviate the bousing problem.  Mr. St. Pierre points out that causes  are complex and almost certainly action  to be taken will be varied. Building methods and building codes; availability and  cost of money, designs, land prices, land  assembly plans are all fkcets to be considered. ���  Mayor Fred Feeney stated that council  should get involved and give suggestions  which might assist. Ala. Wally Peterson  and Gerry Dixon will form a committee  in order to submit a brief which must be  in Ottawa before October 26th.  UNUSUAL  REQUEST  Letter from B.C. Amateur Sports Council sought a grant to help B.C; athletes  compete internationally. Ibe letter, copies  of which have been sent to cities -throughout the province, stated that the council  is unable to meet $50,000 due to the Canadian Olympic Association.  Aid. Ken Crosby commented that it  is pretty grim to have to solicit -funds in  such a manner and felt that the Federal  Government should assist. Council decided  to send a copy of the letter to Ottawa  ^suggesting more attention be given Canadian athletes.  <_     >  Volume 5, No. 45  WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9,1968  Garden Show success  ^7% despite rain deluge  jjjtS^sw^^^A1;  ���r -i. * -j i i"  '������'.- '���'���'- S|i^_alHpw.je__?^YY^Y |"'  Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens IHfofn-  es will have very fine fjb:3$.e_5l7t3_&riks  tp the success of the recent":raffle  which received tremendousj #pp��ft-  Ladies from different organizatapjis  helped draw the winning tickets itoja  left: Mrs. Bert RiitherfordYprs- ���'��,.

Aldenman .Morgan Thompson last we&k  at m^&g.of Sechelt council.. __ ;.Y,  Mayor Rill1 Swain questionedright -of  council to involve itself in matters of 13ys  nature, expressing the view that council  would be stepping out of bounds and should  not' take- oh the problems of those using  this type of service. | j  Aid. JThompson said it was simplyY a  suggestion and he had thought it might be  possible to install outlet boxes and in turn  charge a fee of possibly $12.00 annualy to  those interested.  .Replying to a complaint regarding the  mass, of-signs at'Ihe corner df Potpoi <v '_ume  _e_��  Bay -BbadY-Steal "Estate "Agents "B-fflWl^e'^^^l^^  Sweet they  would investigate the  matte* ' "  but were  unaware  they  had  a   BoultJbee  Sweet sign up on the property.

Parents Auxiliary plans  home baking iund raiser  PARENTS Auxiliary, Roberts' Creek will  again be holding a sale of home baking; this time at Shop Easy Store, Sechelt  from 2 to 4 p.m, on Saturday, October 12.  All proceeds to go to .Roberts Creek.  Schopl. The Auxiliary wishes to thank  the management of Shop Easy Store for  their kind co-operation.  Alderman's suggestion . ����  COST OF  underground hydro cables,  in  Board wishes to know who has  title to  the event Sechelt undertakes a sewer  system, would prove prohibitive because  a great deal more is at stake than simply  cutting out ditches for sewer pipes. ,'   ���.'  This was revealed at the last meeting  of Sechelt council' following a ' query by  Alderman Morgan Thompson -who, suggested possibilities of underground- cables  might be investigated should a sewer system ever be established.  Mayor Bill Swain explained that such  a possibility had been considered in the  past and council, at that time, "was given  to understand the cost for an 'area such  as this would be ��ar more than would-be '  warranted.  Alderman 'Harold Nelson explained that  although cables could be buried at considerable cost there are still certain items of  equipment which would remain above  ground.  AIRfORT  Airport Committee Chairman, Morgan  Thompson expressed disappointment at the  attitude of the Regional Board which at its  last meeting came up with a number of  excuses as to why it could not proceed  ���with request of both councils that it as-  -..- - - JPL' "'��� '".'"'     "���'��� the suggestion.  Representatives on the board'for coun- " /:���"���-���.'. " K :t  cil of Gibsons, Mayor Fred Feeney, voted  against a motion that councils be informed  the 'Board la��tks the authority to take over  the operationi at this time and that more  information is required before such a proposition could be put to the public. Sechelt  council representative, Adele de Lange,  voted for the motion.  Aldei-nan Thompson made clear the  fact that all pertinent information has been  turned over to Board Director A. Rutherford and questioned his statement that only  six to eight planes use the airport for six  'months of the year. "If this is taken to  refer to th. aero club, then I would ask  fwhat is wrong with that, they are all residents of the area" he said. "There is something grossly wrong with his figuring" he  added.  Alderman de Lange said it appears the  MEMBERS of the Sechelt Garden Club are  obviously doing their homework for  quality of the entries in last Saturday's  Fall Show was quite putstanding despite the  torrential downpour which preceeded the  show.  In declaring the exhibition open Mr.'E.  Booth commented on the great pleasure  and satisfaction derived from growing sucb  superb blossoms which m turn give so  much pleasure to others.  Club members were kept busy throughout the day serving tea and refreshments;  conducting visitors and offering advice to  gardeners  On display was the lovely framed needlepoint picture made by Mrs Madge Hansen which was later won by Mr. Jack  Whaites and the Rubber plant won by Miss  Ann Ross  Mrs J P Jorgenson of Halfrnoon Bay  once again proved her gardening ability  by winning highest number of points in  both sections; chrysanthemums and potted plants, cut flowers and arrangements.  Her total number of points was 43. Mrs.  Kay Lemieux gained 26 points add ber  floral arrangements were again breathe  takingly beautiful. Other totals were: Mr.  Fr^tnk Read 13, Mrs. Janet Aien 11, Mrs.  Jack Whaites 8, Mrs. Mary. Walker 3 and  Mrs. Conroy 1.  Child's dish-garden open to non-members was won by Nancy Stroshein with Edward Sigouin coming a close second.  Judges: were Mrs. Corletit of Gibsons  and Mr. Kirkland who has summer home  at Selma Park where he grows the most  beautiful chrysanthemums.  Injuries- prove fatal  after motoring crash  A SECHELT youilh died last week following an accident in which the auto he  was driving struck a tree after plunging  off the highway near.Selma Park.  Peter Poulsen, in his , 13th year,, was  rushed to St. Mary's Hospital after being  pulled fronj the car in which he was trapped Friday September 27. Found to be suffering from a broken leg and superficial  lacerations, complications are understood  to have developed and many in the community were shocked to -hear of his death  last Wednesday.  A former- Elphinstone student, the dead  youth wajs the -son of Mr.' and Mrs. K.  fcedstew^afc^^ ���?m3i,  .    -     Y      '�����>-        ^^held-^modetails-afe yet known.-'  the airport and also who owns the assets.  Thompson replied that this information has  already (been given to Rutherford.  '. Told that everything has been handed  over to the Board, Mayor Swain expressed the view "it is obvious they want nothing to do with it".  C. OF C. BANQUET  Alderman Thompson] drew attention to  the fact that he had attended the recent  twenty-first anniversary banquet of the  Seehelt Chamber of ConMnerce. "Both, _j_��4  'and entertainment were excellent and it  certainly proved a great success," he said.  Alderman de Lange was  disappointed  'that council of Sechelt was not mentioned.  PARKING  Alderman Chuck Rodway suggested that  as parking has proved something of 3  prohleim during summer months, considera-  lion anight be given to white lines designating parfing areas. As things are it is  "quite usual to see one auto parked half a  length behind another, this is repeated  'along each street with the result that *  'good third of parking space is wasted, he  explained.  !

Greta Jorgenson of Halfrnoon  Bay is the grand aggregate winner  of Sechelt Garden, Club's Fall Flower  Show for the second consecutive  year. Club President Frank Read  had the happy task of presenting her  with two silver cups and the chrome  tray.  r . ii   Obtain properly now  suggests AlcjL Rodway  DRAWING attention to tin* fa��t approaching day wlH'n council will be badly in  need of land, for recreational purposes,  Alderman Chuck Rodway at last meeting  (A Sechelt council asked for Information  regarding lot 117CJ cjinprlalng about 170  acres, held for the village for such use.  Mayor Hill Swain explained that the  property, togelher with an njucent property of about 100 acres, is held In reserve  for the village but lias t. bc logged off  first. To ..Main It at this time would mean  an appraisal by tbe Dept. of l^inds and  Forest* which would sell It to the village.  Clerk Trd Hayncr said he understands  .lie Foreht Scrvico Is presently carrying  out selective logging *on the pro|>erty,  Alderman M organ Thompwn ��s>k<.d  what would be the prorccdure regarding  acquiring Jt now, The clerk replied that  thin would be premature and that it would  probably In* available" at low cost once  lo����inx is con.pi.t--l..  Gibsons project > . ��  FQHTY residential unite built on the "Condominium   Principle"   are  planned for  the, former Cartwrlght property rwliich borders the Gibsons   village  boundary.  Condominium means "Joint control over  estate" which 1�� what owner-residents  would have.  'President and manager of AUBO Developers and Bulldcra I>1d of Vancouver,  Mr. Olaf Klasen attended last Week's  meeting of Gibsons Village Council to support hi* company's nppll.atlon seeking to  have the property Included within the village boundary,  'Mayor Tred Keeney assured lhe applicant that, council Is presently working on  a plan to extend the boundaries and thl��  property would  be included,  Mr, Klaficn outlined the development  which will feature the besl in family living combined with recreational facllltJcn  and will he said., be a pleuitunt and attractive asnet to the district. The project will  eventually! hnvc a club-house, fiwimtninj.  pool and It Is hoped to develop It In connection with the Vancouver School of Fine  Arts,  tttrcct Jisfrung, landscape lighting, tin*  dcrcrouud   wiring  aod cable   vltkm  wextt  some of the features mentioned.  Depending on financing of the project,  debclopment will be in three ��tnge�� nnd  take from two to three years. It is hoped  to commence in tlie spring on stage one  Which be construction of 1 single; 2 duplex;  1 triplex and 1 quadruplex unils. .Second  stage will be 8 dclu_c condominium units  and stage throe whlchl will In. construction  of 20 condominium units which would definitely require proper sewage facilities. The  first two filages will be possible with m'|>-  Uc tanks disposal. .,  Purchase price which Includes lot wlH  vary from *i2,r.oo to $2:$,ooo and it will Iw  'possible for the purchaser to get title at  a minimum cost,and arrange his own mortgage. 'Possible down payment for a single  unit  was quoted at $1,500.  This type of building, said KlaM'ii In  approved by N.ll.A. and Central ll<mMni.  and Mortgage will 'guarantee a rni��rtg��K".  Th�� first of ouch projects was built recently nt. Port 'Moody and they arc very |��n|��-  ular in Eastern Canada,  It Js possible that such a 'project would  attract enough resident^ from Vancouver  if there was not enough local interest said  Mr, Klasen who displayed plans and dr*w-  iug* of the proponed structure.  Bylaw No. 20 was given three readings  at tlie September Regional Board meeting  and deals with wharf and public access  lighting throughout the district excluding  the villages of Sechelt and Gibsons. It now  awaits approval of the electorate.  Water Bylaw No, 21 has been prepared  In rough draft and deals with (the supply  and distribution of water as a function of  the Regional District substantial^ as recommended in tlie Sunshine Coast Waterworks Survey.  CO-OPERATION  Sunshine Coast Regional District will  co-operatxj with Powell Jtlver nnd Vancouver Island Municipalities in a study to be  made with a view to creating a Joint municipal data-proecS'Sing centre for lhe area.  Regonal Board feels it h?Js more in common with the Island and Powell River  than .lie I_owcr Mainland..Cost of the ��tudy  will be borne by llie five largest municipalities, In conjunction with this there was  a Abort course at IBM which secretary  Charles  Gooding attended,  PAROCHIALISM  Chairman Prank Went rej>ort_d on Union  of B.C. Municipalities Convention held  last month, Mating he was appalled by tho  amount of parochialism evident In the voting on resolutions. Coastal areas voted a-  gainst the Interior and vice versa,  Director Gilker agreed there Is advantage in association by area when It wa��  suggested that Powell River, Sunshine  Coast and S.uamish get together lo exchange ideas,  COMBINED   OFFICE  A further letter Is being sent <o the  School Hoard concealing Joint us<p of premise!, for administrative imrpows. Chairman West stated "We owe It to the tax-  payer lo look into Hie matter"; iie believes  that coMk could lie saved in thin manner  and if the (school board Is planning a new  building tbe matter should lie imrsurd further,' Copies of the letter are t>cinfl nent  to Uw Mini_tcr of .Municipal J-itairK and  the Aiinitfter of Education.  SEVENTY-FOUR enthusiastic members oif  the Sunshine Coast Golf Club attended  the annual 'meeting held last Monday at  the Roberts Creek Hall and unanimously  expressed confidence in the endeavors of  the  esxecutive   during  the   past   year.  'Members present were welcomed by  retiring president Frank Newton who expressed the view that it was encouraging  to see such'a good crowd turn out. He said,  originally it had been hoped to have the  course officially opened in July 1988, unfortunately in thc early stages it had proved hard to convince people that the project would go ahead. Consequently while  many indicated interest it proved difficult  pursuading them to put out capital in advance.  Sufficient numbers eventually showed  sufficient faith to take out ���membership  with the result work has progressed extremely well. Inevitable hold-ups, fire season and determination to progress without  having to borrow funds, has resulted in  extending the opening date, however, this  in many ways has proved to have certain  advantages. "We now have a beautiful  golf course fast approaching completion  and above all we have proved one thing,  that is-united we stand and divided wc toil"  he added,  Mr. Newton also commended Mrs. Wilma Morrison, the only lady on the committee and who was responsible for letting  the club have the1 property at a very low  cost.  Club accountant Reg Thomas gave , a  concise run-down of the financial report  which Indicated the club is now in a solid  jwsitlon with fixed assets of $91,000 ��"<*  current assets of $lfi,84fl. This latter includes accounts receivable of $10,017.  "There ore a number of people who put  down a deposit of $30 and who say they  will pay the balance when they see 1h��  course, which I feel is not a very good attitude" he explained.  Following his report, Mr, Thomas wan  congratulated by meimbers for thc straight  forward and comprehensive statement,  Mr. Bernel iGordon, By-law chairman,  explained that in compiling tlie club'_ bylaws, those of other clubs had been carefully studied first, those finally Incorporated into the constitution have been approved by tin'; club's lawyer, Ihey are nevertheless merely a guide and will lw subject lo changes as and when nccccssary  with approval of the membership,  Membership chairman Bill Sneddon 'reported that up to laid years annual meeting there were JOO menibcrs In the club,  up to BepU'iiiber .10th. of this year he has  2.r��5't.uii two unconfirmed. Of these approx-  imaU'lj. 7f��% arc fully paid up.  Mr. Sneddon emphasised the fact that  lhc club needs every available dollar and  therefore it. would be. greatly appreciated  if thobc who came in on a 4__> depobit would  pay up their balance.  Roy Taylor, construction superviser, reported that dispite a poor start things are  now preceeding very satisfactorily, the  irrigation system has worked well and  grass is growing nicely. Al 'grading and  raking together with balarice of seeding  should be completed and in operation by  Spring.

Suspensions Ym- 3L967 was almost double  ithat of tojpo:-_-dusYyear-^5^611 compared  "with 2,823.1 In7the__rst eight months of this  year,- 4^66-licences jw.ere. suspended.com-  -- pared with 3,741 in the comparable, period  . of 1967. . Y  l Sttperinteodent of - Motor- Vehicles- has  Ibeen assisted greatly by a .'points system-'  ithat has-been-developed for rating-motor-  . 'istsr Se> will -be- -helped, too,�� by -a-' new  driving.jaw to be tested in the. Greater Victoria area 7 beginning;'iQctober 1.  New driving -law- ��__t substitute violation reports for traffic fines for driving  offenses under the Motor Vehicle Act.  These violation reports, unless. disputed  and heard by the magistrate in the courts,  will go directly to the Superintendent of  Motor Vehicles.  The Superintendent, using a sophisticated computer system, will tally violation  reports and then take appropriate action  when a motorist has accumulated sufficient  'points'. This action may be a warning, a  licence suspension, or referral to a defensive driving course.  "In today's affluent society, a small  fine'has not proven a, deterrent, to bad  driving," Attorney-General Leslie R. Peterson said.  Statistics, show there were 49,750 auto  accidents in B.C. in 1967, an increase from  44,187 in 1966. To the end of June this  year, a total 24,015 motor vehicle accidents  was-reported, against 20,535 in. the same  period last year.  Motor vehike deaths reached 559 in  1967, up from 520 in 1966. A total 383 died  on the province's highways to the end of  June this year,la substantial increase from  339 in the first six months of 1966.  Briefly, under the driver licence control program, a motorist is assigned points  for various driving offences under the  Motor Vehicle Act. This ranges from two  points for driving through a red light to  10 points for driving where the right to  obtain a licence is' suspended.  When a motorist has accumulated six  points, he receives a warning letter from  the Superintendent. Point values will last  from one to five years. When a motorist  has accumulated nine points, he must  show cause why his Ucence should not be  suspended.  If he requests a hearing, the motorist  is entitled to one. After the hearing he may  be placed on probation, or find his Ucence  suspended anywhere "up to five years.  The points system is now operating for  k aU B.C. motorists, while the new driving  ' law will only go into effect initially in the  Victoria area. It wil be extended to other  parts of the province later.  The new law which eliminates fines removes an objection which some motorists  haye that they are now dealt with twice  on driving infractions���once when they are  fined in the courts and again when their  Ucence Is suspended,  Here is the complete list of point for  driving offences:  10 Point Penalties  Criminal Code of Canada Section: 192  . , ' Causing death by. criminal negUgence, 193  highway, 166 Emerging.from an alley, with- Causing injury by criminal neghgeiice, 221  out due carej 174 Failure to stop at railway (1)' (b) Criminal negligence, 221 (2)(b)  crossing controlled by mechanical device, -Failing to remain at scene of accident, 221  175 Failing to, heed railway stop sign, 176 (4) Dangerous driving, 222 Drunken driv-  Commereial vehicle failing to stop at rail- ing. 223 (a)(b)<c) Driving ability impaired,  way crossing, 180 Improper stopping, J1S4 . 225.

Accepting  the  charter   are  a picnic* After ail the 'rain, a second  spring had freshened the lakeshojre,,. and  it was especi&ily beautiful oh dilr favourite  rock bluff. The wild grass, which is dusty  brown in summer, was now a, tender green,  and looked good enough to eat The rugged  gray steps in ihe rock were cai^peted in  emerald velvet moss ahd the deep pile  shimmered silver-green in ihe sunlight.  The water was a glowing blue-green  mirror of stillness, except where a water-  spider skated around the edge trailing a  trembling cobweb of reflected pale gold  light.  And yet, this perfect place had been  desecrated. Over all the rocks and grass,  there-lay a leprous and jagged crust of  shattered beer bottles. In a soft grassy  hollow, a wet, brown fang of glass glinted  in the sun, waiting the chance to slice to  the bone. Everywhere I looked, the ground  bristled with shining sabers of glass.  I stretched out on an old bone of a  log, and tried to fathom the monstrous  mind responsible for such desecration.  If this, tuiknown creature, was oblivious  to his surrounding why did he not-,sit in a  dirty' back alley' surrounded by oyeflow-  ing trash. cans? What reason could there  be for chobsing this lovely spot by the  lake, where he was so obviously out of  place.  Could it be, th��|,his stiiT^undihgs made  r yipfhers^wjao^ iiave patched this uncon-  jtrollaJne j-_3e__-action,-eventually buy plas-  t|c bottles. Could not tft$ same be done for  the beer bottle bany?  sitting in his livisg room, watciuhg-T.V.  and   hurling  empties  at the   wall. Vtby  shouldn't he? Even ihe most presumptuous,  bumpkin could hardly consider his livhag,  room finer than nature's.  But no, this was foolish speculation. To  impute "motives io fhis-unknowh/cle^jJiler  was to imply intelligence whefce non e&ls- ,  ted.

Tbe  attendance indicated a great deal of enthusiasm and interest an the project.  Among the organzations represented  were St. Hilda's Church, Seehelt (Mrs. Norman Franklin and Mrs. Stan Bryant), St.  Aidan's Church, Robert Creek (Mrs. John  Sear and Mrs. A. M. Harper), United  Church (Mrs. Bert Rutherford of Roberts  Creek), Canadian Legion LA (Mrs. J, A.  Proste and Mrs N. Encsooi of Sechelt and  Mrs P Edmunds of Roberts Creek), The  Rebekahs (Mrs Jack Whaites and Mrs.  L P Hansen), Lions Ladies (Mrs. Neil  Campbell and Mrs Jack Nelson), OAPO  (Mrs L V Yates), Redwell Ladies Guild  (Mrs. Janet Allen). Also present were Mrs.  Alan Greene, Mrs Minto Swan, Mrs. Ben  Firth, Mrs Mary Walker who has been  associated with the Pioneer Homes in New  Westminster, Mrs Wm McGregor and  Mrs  G  C  Tinkley.  The meeting was chaired by the hostess Mrs Dawe Canon Alan Greene, President of the Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens  Housing Society and Canon Minto Swan,  Chairman of the Finance Committee, were  on hand to tell representatives something  of the work of the Society and how church  groups and service clubs could help in the  venture.  Canon Greene, reporting progress, regretted that owing to various delays and  shortage of carpenters, construction would  not be completed by November 1st when  it had been hoped to have the cottages occupied The official opening would probably  be at the end of November  Canon Swan said the site of the homes  had been chosen because it had all the  facilities necessary, level ground, proximity to hospital, shopping centre, church,  etc He said that during his recent travels  across Canada and through Europe, he had  inspected many senior citizens' homes but  nowhere had he seen better planned and  better built units which had all these advantages  While it was not considered necessary  at this stage of development of the project  to form a Ladies Auxiliary, it was suggested that the organizations represented,  working in conjunction with the Society  could act as a kind of community council.  Two specific prospects on hand for which  help would be gratefully received, said Canon Swan, were the making of drapes for  the cottages and catering for the opening  ceremony There were other ways, he said,  m which groups could help They could  take out group membership of the Society  at a suggested fee of S3 50 per year, which  would give the organization one vote at  all meetings.  They mightt be prepared to make regular donations towards the upkeep of one  of the cottages. While there did not seem  to be any consistent heed "for help at this  stage of development', assistance might be  required with transportation from time  to .time.  The specific need of the Society at present, said Canon Swan, was to raise sufficient money to pay off the property, thus  cutting down interest costs.  In a reply to a question, Canon Greene  reported that at the present time, qualifications for guests of the cottages are  that they must be residents of the area  from Port Mellon to Egmont and maximum  income allowed is $148 per month per person.  ��� During   .the   afternoon,   winners   were  drawn for the Siursfcine Coast Senior C5i-_  izens' Housing raffle. The lucky ^jvpiiers  were George Drew of Seehelt {two Eskimo  carvings), Mrs. Charles Brown of West  Sechelt (Marten Neckpiece), oMrs. Violet  Campbell (400 day clock), R,1 Thompson  of Trail (Hand kxdtted bedspread), L. Gun-  nar Hansen of W. Seehelt (silver tray) and  Mrs. J. M. K. Clarke of Vancouver' (Jet  Necklace and Earring Set). ,  The raffle was reported to be an outstanding success and suficiect proceeds  were realized to buy materials far the  drapes for all the windows of the H), cot  tages now under construction. The drapes  will be made by voluntary labour under a  committee beaded by Mrs. Ben Firth and  Mrs   L  V. Yates.  Thanks were expressed to Mrs. Dawe  for her generous hospitality and to the ladies who supplied and served suich a delicious tea.  y wins?

Just over two sets were on hand at the  top of the evening but at on$* time the  second set was square dancing with an  invisible man which proved to ibe quite  entertaining. I went over to shake hands'  and was immiediately pulled hnto thajt  square, then II noticed that the invisible  man was in number one~square! some  fun  It was really nice to see the Winhandl's  and the McCourts on the floor.

Ralph Loiffmark, Minister  of Health, etc,, hindsight is more to the  mark. Our illustrious fighter of the fungii  hopes to sneak a bill through the Legislature prohibiting the use of flush-type toilets aboard pleasure craft, thereby putting an end to the poMuiion of our local  waters. This is 'brilliant 13iinking; sound  legislation, 1 must say. u*Har-har-de-har!"  Why only small craft? Now I ask you:  haw can they pose a threat to the ^purity of  our Pacific shores when, for goodness  knows hotw many years, countless scores  of men on thousands of ships have left  an unthinkalble ninmtber of plotchers all  .-over���the"B.C.-coast? - -'������-  It is estimated there are close to 50,000  small' craft in "B-CYOply a few thousand  are equipped wifii a Bush-type thunder  box. mhese will have to go and chemical toilets must 'be instated in ��� their place^-at  the owner's expense, of "course���-(because  somebody has a bee in his bonnet about  bugs.  During; a trip across the Gulf, would  Mr. Loifitoark stand with his knees and  toes together to relieve the excruciating  agony of one hour and fifty minutes without a trip to the "Gents", because the ferry had one of those disgusting flush toilets?  Not very likely! In fact, he probably wouldn't risk such an event���he'd iQy_  To owners of boat.; too small to boast a'  "bog", may I suggest al necessary precautions be taken before leaving on a day's  outing, for under a new law woe betide he  who is caught sitting ^gunwhale with his  trousers down.  ���   ���   ���  Think of the association hazards involved���a direct result of the inability of  the Sunday sailor to pump-ship under fear  of ipenalty of the law. imagine a flotilla  of boats, under fut throttle, wildly" converging on the only pubic washroom at a  nearby marina. Dangerous? Why, only the  most s'MUlPul Would survive without buffering accident to property and person. And,  of .course, there wall be 1he unfoitunate  citizen bijiled into a Magistrate's (court  and charged with violating the Chemical  ToSet Act; ���"Joseph Edward Soap; you  have been found guilty of using a toilet in  the Strait of iGeorgia, thereby polluting  said body of water. Have you anything to  say in your behalf before I pass sentence?"  "But I .... "  "Then I do hereby sentence you, for a  period of not less than ten years, to operating a boat not further than three miles  from any marina equipped with public  facilities." The defendant stares .ksheniy  at the 'Magistrate, who .finishes with, "May  the Lord have mercy on your bladder!"  ��   *   *  But perhaps Loffmark and Co. will  eventually find that pleasure craft really  didn't babe much of an effect on water pollution after .al..

So what is to be done about it?  ���Why, refuse them the right to use their  sanitary facilities���if of the flush type,  naturally���what else!  Now that would be a real dandy idea!  Clever! Yes siree-bob; passengers aboard  the liners down there at Pier B would' really enjoy their view of Vancouver through  eyes fogged with unrelieved pain. As soon  as the 'gangway, is down there would be a  desperate swarm of humanity surging up  the dock to the nearest hotels and service  stations. And how utterly degrading for the  Master of the Orsova to be hopping up and  down on the bridge, as his ship came  alongside the dock. Beautiful B.C., indeed.  ���     ���     a,  The effects off the proposed bill could  be far reaching. Even foreign trade could  be hard hit as a result of the desire to  prevent our beaches becoming green, sandy shores of cess pools: "Jamie, don't go  near the water; you'll dirty your clothes!"  What ship is going to convert it's plumbing to chemical cans just to be able to  come to Vancouver, or any other B.C. port  for that matter, when it can pollute the  waters around Seattle instead?  The Hon. Minister of Health has put forward an idea which a , great number of  people] feel is a lot of bilge. TJws underwater babblings from the flushed toilets  of a few small pleasure cxaVi do not constitute raw sewage as nature takes care  of it'is disposal. However, if every pleasure  boat dn B.C. got together Jn some bay and  on a signal, flushed in unison, perhaps then  there would be some cause for concern.  When Ralph Lotfmafk tries to squeeze  this bit through, he is going to be up  against an awful lot of smelly opposition.  EMMSULA  Section B  Wednesday, October ?,'1968  :.

"*'  / ii  Monday, October 7, 1968  The Peninsula-Time*  P��Se, &�� . r"  TSfotes  Pom/ St. Pierre  ��� Letter from Parliament Hill  THE EN-SBRE province of Prince Edward  Island could be placed within the mountain region of lOoast-OhMpotln and it wouldn't touch a railroad nor a highway nor a  telephone line, nor would it cast a shadow  over more than a few score of British  Columbians. Canada's smallest province  is little more than 100 males in length and  its total population is under 110,000.  Yet Prince Edward Island sends lour  members to Parliament, all doubtless capable and energetic. At federal-provancial  conferences, PEI's premier makes up one  tenth of the provincial bloc at the conference table. All this is quite proper. Ut is  stated only to point out that Prince Edward Island's weight in national affairs is  far larger than its size might imdieaite.  Since this is one of the provinces- which  continuously and vocilEorously demands  tever more aid from the national treasury,  it behooves British Ctotenfoians to 1st to  what is being said away down East.  Recently we heard in the house lErom  Me-vin MeQuaid of Souris, PEL He declared that the rest of Canada just doesn't  realize the seriousness of 'his province's  Situation.  Consider the figures, said: Mr. McQuaid.  In '1966, the average Canadian personal  income ((calculated on a per capita basis)  was $2,084.   In Prince Edward Island,  it  was only $1,382.  Between 1961 and 1966, the national  average income increased by 50.3 per cent.  In the four Atlantic provinces the increase  was only 42.7 percent. Not only did these  provinces begin poor, they were becoming  relatively more so.  .Mr. -VLcQuaid didn't present comparative figures for British Columbia. However .those interested may consider the  following, supplied by Dominion Bureau  of iStatistics for the year 0567; National per  capita income in that year was $2,313.  Ontario'6 was1 highest at $2,604; British  Columbia next at $2,579 and Prince Edward  Island seco-d^west with $1,532.'  J(-t this point' British Columbians may  be expected to .have a general. feeling of  'pymlpathy for, their fellow' Canadians in  FEIA also a sense of re-gret that heavy  federal government subsidies have not better remedied the situatioii of these people.  They may also wonder why more people  an IPEI don't pull up stakes and move to  where the wages are.  "Mr. DtficQuaid dealt also with this subject. He said, this: '"Migration from the  area has been a major factor .... When  one considers the large gap, there is naturally a tendency to move from the Atlantic provinces dn search of better opportunities elsewhere."   '  This might be expected. But he said  more: "(Migration on this scale must be  examined very carefully, because if it continues at this, present high rate we may  very well /have less than the labor force  required to produce the, goods and services necessary to provide a level of income sufficient to prevent a widening of  the present income gap ..."

Too long a delay results in blooms  that are too liaite in opening before the inclement weather gets here.  When seifctong the plants out, see to it  ���that there is lots of humus in the fonm of  old <coimipost or well rotted manure under  them. Subsequent dressings with, a complete  feri__lzer at monthly intervals will keep  them girowing steadily.

Mrs. Day would like to get  the | English Department involved in the  setting up of this year's annual. Each  homeroom may ibe putting together their  own part of the annual, raising money to  pay for each page they put in and then  turning it over to the yearbook, staff for  the final production.  It is hoped to get hold of a publishing  company which will supply the proper  materials and allow us to do part of the"  production and would cut the cost. What  we don't have the machinery for, they  could do for us, and finally take our pages  and the .plages they produce and bind them  together ip a hard cover book.  At a ajneeting held last week, with a  very goojil turn out, over half of 'the divisions weift represented. The reason for involving thfe English Department is that all  the stu.deh.tsj in our school are required to  tike English and the setting up of the  yearbook 'could possibly become an English  assignment. With over 600 students registered at Elphie this year, we could have  one of the best yearbooks ever.  At the sWents Council meeting held on  the 4'lh of October, it was voted to have  "-Meddy's People" for our first dance on  November lit, the senior Sadie Hawkins  Dance. Any ijstudent, 15 and up is invited  to attend this dance. The junior dance, on  November Sth,..^iMhaye a-locai band, "The  Manchiurian Debate."  Also, at the meeting, it was decided that  the Students Council will set up \a $200  Emergency Fund for the benefit of the  clubs. Whenever any iclubs are in debt they  can come to the Students Council to barrow  money. 'It ,can be paid back at any time,  either in full or the Students Council wall  go 50-50 with the club.  Slave Day this year is going to be sponsored by the Grade 12 class who are imuch  in need otf the money. The Grade 12 students will be auctioned off to the students  and will be at the students disposal���well���  their command anyway.

Lasd year two representatives from  our s9hoal attended the'meeting and reported back to the school with'some very valuable information.  This year the method of examination  has been changed at Elphie. There will be  no recommendations for Grade ll's and  down, but then again, neither will there  be any final exams.

' '    ��'  ���The Times, Ottawa Bureau -  OTTAWA���Canada is very rapidly losing  its reputation as a nation of homeowners, lias becomes obvious lo anyone looking at the skyline of any large Canadian  centre today, its horizon dotted wriflHtdgk >  risk apartment btuldings. "���   [  Yet in the race between demand and  supply of apartments, supply bas been  tailing badly. Housing experts -draw a line  at a vacancy rate of three per cent in Judging whether a city has a bousing shortage.  In ll of the larger metropolitan areas chosen for sampling by the Dominion Bureau  of Statistics the vacancy level has been  below ifchree percent for tfae last two years  with only one exception.  The exception is Montreal where vacatar  ~cWs'TM���~MM^^T.%T~aW"'i^^SmS^S~'"  per cent to 4.7 per cent. Here quite obviously the super-effort to provide accommodation for visitors at Expo '67 Resulted  in a more comfortable situation by the middle of this year when the survey was made.  Semi-detached houses, row bousing and  duplexes were excluded from the survey.  In apartment units alone vacancy levels  have shown an almost consistent decline  between 1963 and 1968. Calgary was probably overstocked with apartments and bad  a 16.3 per cent of its apartments vacant  in 1963. Vacancies dropped steadily to 1.8  per cent in 1967 and l.l per cent this year.  Edmonton had a 13 per cent vacancy level in 1964 which was cut in half in 1965  and remained at 2.3 per cent in1 the next  three years.  Winnipeg vacancies rose from 3.8 per  cent in 1963 to 5-6 per cent in 1964. Last  year and this year the vacancy rate has  been 1.5 per cent. In all three western  cities there is a boom this year in apart  ment buildings that should be reflected  in an easier situation in 1969.  But apartment vacancies tell only a  part of the story of the decline'in home  ownership. Probably not a half of Canadian families, living in rented dwellings  are in apartment blocks. The Test live in  duplexes or single unit housing.*,  For statisitieal purposes officials of Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation  class only ithe single detached house as owner-occupied. They admit that this is a  rough and ready way of calculating but  contend that the number of detached houses rented to tenaate probably matches the  number of owner-occupied semidetached  and row houses.  The National Housing Act in its modem  form was passed in 1954. It was designed  not only to remedy a chronic housing shortage that had developed sinice the pre-war  days but was specifically planned to encourage home ownership arid put it within reach of the smaller income man.  In the immediate postwar years with  inflation inevitable as soon as controls  were lifted home owning was not only a  good hedge but there was a reasonable  prospect of the "value of housing increasing  at a faster pace than other prices. Im this  period starts on dete^^d_?-~__gs which. "  CMHC considers as owner-occ-ipded ran  as high as 80 per cent of the total. In 1949  they were 78 i__- eent.  The 1954 legislation not only introduced  the low down payment and long term insured mortgage but held interest rates under a ceiling. It started a new era w. wmcu  the home owner had a very small equity  in his home and would have little for  some years to come.  In the following year if the CMHC classification is used 71 per cent of all dwelling  units stalled were being built by or for  owners. Apartment units started in that  year were only 19 per cent. Row housing  in its modern form was still a thing of the  future.  During the first eight months of this  year the situation is almost completely reversed. Apartment units alone have accounted for 61 per cent of the total. Other  housing in the rental class has been 10 per  cent and houses built for home ownership  only 29 per cent,  There are probably a bundle of reasons  for the change and (their order of importance has varied with the conditions of the  period under (review. Since 1956 new incentives have been added to the National Housing Act designed to encourage home owner, building and including until this year  a growing volume of direct lending by CMHC.  But since 1U5C, probably related to rising construction costs, there has been a  conslstont decline in ithe projwjntion of home  ownership dwellings started, Intercut rates  until very recently do not appear to have  been, an important factor in discouraging  NHA housing for ownehihip, Interest ceilings were moving up and down in tlio C  to 6,75 range.  Towards ithe end of J906 tlio ccdliing went  above seven per cent tor the first time. But  in liHXi tlie proimrllon of1 home ownership  starts jumjKMl from 45 jkt cent to 53 j>er  cent; the number of apartment units started dropped from 47 per cent to 38 per cent.  Thin is the last year In which the number  of ,lidiiwe-s Warted for homo ownership has  been larger Mum the number of apartment  units.  In l!Ki7 after a year when over-all hoaxing starts had slumpix! badly National Hon.  sin.g Act regulations were .'lined. During  a Spring Incentive period CMHC whn authorized to make direct loans to bulkier*)  wli'tlwni't the pro-sale riwj.ntrcnwaiit.
