with the bronze pin which required^ five
targets scoring 80 or better out of 100
from the prone position.'

At-that time the property did belong to Secheit Lands and naturally was  hot cheap. However, that price today and  with* the "addition of an excellent silver  sand >aterfrontage would be quite  reasonable. -  . > Such unfortunately was not to be for  there were those on council, and a few  others hi the community, who saw fit to  reject: the proposal. The property was  therefore subdivided and sold as lots.  Village access to the Bay is now ,a total  of 130 feet, an additional 120 has been  discovered and is presently sought for  the village by Alderman Norm Watson  then we have a threefold year round attraction.  Unfortunately, in Secheit, we do not  even have boat rentals and accommodation is presently limited to one good  motel within the village. The visitor who  comes, to stay for a period of time, generally, if here for fishing, will chose" to  seek accommodation in close proximity  of boat rentals and marinas. He certainly  will not stay in Secheit and travel ten or  more miles to rent a boat or anchor his  own vessel if accommodation is available  close at hand. - ,  This then points to the potential of  Porpoise Bay. It has so many qualities to  command it and, we have no doubt, time  will establish the fact we have a virtual  gold-mine in our midst.. Certainly very  many tourist meccas have considerably  less to offer from a natural resource  standpoint. It requires only the vision  and financial resources of progressive individuals to establish a fabulous resort  centre equal to any, anywhere in the  world.  While it has proved obvious in the  Maltreatment-of children ever increasing''problem.  who in a short time bas made great past that many local residents fail to ap-  strides in an- attempt to utilize to best predate the potential of the "mud flat"  advantage the little we have left. it is significant to reflect on the fact that   ja*   Ipa^f - flflffi   3   TTlflTltli  THE ALERT driver- pays special attention  to his itires before he sets out and while  he's on the road.  .

Higher industrial taxations, also a threat  to employment but undoubtedly all very  desirable from an idealistic point of view.  Such is Mr. Berger's idea of a socialistic Shangri-la, the philosophy all  reads like a fairy tale providing one is  content to let fantasy erase all semblence  of reality, but we-have only to consider  the rise and fall of countries such as  whole in the process.  That staid old British House of Commons has not been without its scandals,  the Federal Government in Ottawa is  not exempt, most European Governments have had their moments of tempestuous intrigue and at the moment a  storm rages in France, To discredit a  progressive government because of the  questionable activities of an occasional  malcontent is quite ludicrous.

Wednesday just before lunch about  60 students from McPherson Park Junior  Secondary arrived. During the lunch  hour our senior boys challenged their  basketball team in a hard fought battle.  Up until the fourth quarter it was a  pretty even match, but in the fourth  quarter our hoys seemed to be all over the  floor and came out victorious, 46-20. Top  scorers for our team were Ken Bland  with 14 points, and Al .Gould and Len  Martin with 10 points each.  At 2:30 p.m, the students of our school  gathered in the "gym for a band concert.  Our own band leader, Mr. Postelwaite  is from McPherson Park.

Symptoms  of improper inflation are tire squeals on  turns or poor readability when constant  steering is needed to keep the car on the  road. \  The itires should also be inspected for  wear, cracks and alignment. Signs of uneven wear can be evidence of other vehicle defects.  Irregular wear could signal worn-out  is off is car vibration.

Apathy,  soaring cost of living, excessive taxation,  increased industrial dissention, exodus of  brain power, jobs for the boys who voted  right, nationalization of large industries  and subsequent loss of profit; all side effects of the demoralizing! shackles of  socialism. Employees of these state owned companies became in effect, civil servants, they still had overseers but were  all chums together(and whether they  .worked or not the government paid so  why worry?  fore. It would be futile and indeed  catastrophic to dismount a winning horse,  particularly when the propensities of the  contender leave' so much to be desired.  Change is no bad thing, when indications are that it is for the best, when  that change offers ah unknown but radical quantity, then the general public has  good reason to run shy and we have little  doubt that in the next election a very  real and well justified fear will result in  rejection of socialist government. ���  TENDERS  Four tenders for Sunshine Coast Regional District garbage disposal were  opened at a special meeting of the Regional Board on Friday. Tenders were:  Sunshine Coast Disposal Service $19,200;  Gaines Construction Ltd. $21,840; S. F.  Waters $30,212; E. N. Benner $42,000.  Two lowest itenders' have been referred  to the Committee fpr consideration. Garbage disposal area covers Wood Bay to  Lahgdale,  March is the month which all those  first payments don't begin until.  and a few selections of Dixieland music.

It is an interesting fact that of  the 53 wanies submitted, 28 contained  "Green" or "Greene." While Canon Alan,  Greene himself was not in favor of such  a name, it was felt to be the wish of ithe  people" of the Sunshine Coast that his name  should be perpetuated in recognition ^ of  the part he had played in getting the  homes established. Following a ballot,  the name decided on was Greene Court.  The Directors thank all who submitted  suggestions and expressed so much interest and goodwill. Suggestions even came  from people in Vancouver. Mrs. Gladys  E. Kean, for instance, who had lived for  many years in Secheit, submitted several  suggestions and wished the old folks who  live in the homes many years of peace  and happiness. Mrs. B. Angenman,' who  lived in Dr. White's cottage at Roberts  Creek as long ago as 1930, telephoned her  suggestions from the Kiwanis homes in  West Vancouver where she now lives.  The landscaping of Greene Court is  now completed and the lawn seeded. The  road has been graded by courtesy of Jackson Brothers Logging. The tenants have  been busy gardening and .the fronts of the  cottages are gay with spring flowers. The  installation .of, a.checkerboard and picnic  site on the property, which is a project of  the Sunshine Coost Lions Club, will undoubtedly make Greene Court a centre of  activity during ithe summer months.  There are still some memberships outstanding. K Please support this good work  by sending in your $1 for renewal to Mrs.  M. Tinkley, R.R. 1, Halfmoon Bay, First  year membership is $2.

You will not be required1to obtain  another Insurance bdok. Your present one  is valid in every province. The Unemployment 'Insurance Act nnd Regulations are  ���tho same 'throughout Canada.  Q. I recently received n retroactive  increase in my wages, but my employer  did not ndju.it the stamps. which had already 'been placed in my book for the back  period. Is this correct?  A, Contributions nro not adjusted on  retroactive Increases. At the time tho  stamps were affixed, they were based on  the actual salary received. Your employer, however, should have added tho'retroactive'pay to tho current pay period at the  time the monies were paid, and tho Unemployment Insurance deduction should be  based on the total amount.

,  Now it is'pome" 2,000,000, an increase of
35 percent.     - -
' - With tone-population growth has grown
the need 'for services for people. Something in excess "of 5.9 billion dollars, .derived directly from the productivity of
the .province,, has_ been spent on services
for people,
, Many people in many areas of our
province, reach out to our treasury for
cash to meet- human needs., On occasion,
it is necessary to portion out available
funds so that no area or group would be
neglected^ . -      .   \
., Our province is .described as-being
divided into forests, agricultural .areas,
fresh water areas, and rocky, barren lands.
Something over half the area is forested,
two* to-'five 'per'cent is agricultural, and
two per cent- is- fresh water' area. --■"■-•'

PRIME Minister, W. A. C," Bennett and
the Cabinet have proclaimed the week
of April 20 - 26, 1969 as Chamber of Commerce Week. The Secheit and District
Chamber of Commerce is one of more than
850 Boards of Trade and Chambers "of
Commerce doing a vital job of Community building across Canada, yet to many
people the words "Chamber of Commerce"
have very little meaning.
During this special week of April 20 -
26 it is hoped the people of the Secheit
area will bake a real interest in this worthwhile non-profit organization of men and
women who give freely of their services
and time for the sole purpose of making
this community a better place < to live.
The Secheit Chamber has experienced
just recently the pleasure of an increase
in membership which now totals 81 mem-
triceHuens, Mary Jackson, Margaret'   bers, and any persons interested-in pro-
Joe,' Sarah Paul, Madelaine Joe and    moting better public' understanding and
Sister  Lucienne  Trudeau.    Seated:*

District ChamberNof Commerce.
Someone might ask what does this or- •
ganization specifically'do? and the ^follow- -
ing may give some idea of the scope of
the undertakings worked out by the Secheit Chamber.  For example:
We were pleased to assist in the pro- "
motion of able and capable candidates for
election to the School Board Trustees and
the Sechejt Village Council.
We have been happy, to,-prepare and <
submit "Briefs" to the Government regarding Highway 101 and also the Ferry Service, and in this connection, in i both of
these areas have succeeded in bringing
about improved conditions, and we will
continue with these projects until satisfactory conditions have been obtained.
Meetings are held regularly, executive
monthly, and general bi-monthly.
At recent General' Meetings we have
had guest speakers as follows^ The'Honorable Ken Kiernan, Minister of Recreation; Ray Perrault, Liberal Party Leader;
' Paul St. Pierre, M.P., Mrs. Isabel P, Daw-
1 son, M.L.A., and B. Smith, President of the
B.C. Chamber of Commerce for 1968,
We have very active Committees working on the following projects:-    '     -   -
The enlarging of Secheit Village Boundaries: the institution of a Sewage Disposal System, in dose liaison with the Village Council in all 'Municipal matters.
'    With  representation  from 'the' three'
ed .to meet with the Honorable K,
nan, Minister of Recreation, on
29, '69.
The Chamber is giving its support, in
principle, of an irregular Air Service
Secheit to Nanaimo,
The Secheit Chamber recently canvassed the area .to obtain Memberships for
the Sunshine Coast Tourist Association
with very good results. This we feel
should help to promote the "Tourist" industry as more publicity will be received
(through Vancouver Visitors and Convention Bureau.
Through-the courtesy of Tyee Air-ways
arrangements have been made for eleven'
members of the staff of the Vancouver
Tourists' Bureau to Have a sight seeing
tour by air and car of the Secheit Peninsular—this to promote berbter public relations and" more'explicit Tourist informa- '
*iti6n'.   "•"•*■..   '	
.* Negotiafciops for„the're-development,of
>the breakwater area haye been in process '
and will continue with the B.A Oil Co.,
Ltd.'     ,     .
Roads\" and highways have received
much attention and by requesting through
a "priority 'list" much work" has been accomplished, for example, paving and im-
provements'to "Redrooffs Road and we understand the paving is to be completed
this year. ,
'Northwest  Bay  Road,   Mason   Road,
Sandy Hook, East Porpoise Bay Road have .
.■all received attention and are greatly improved. In-the Davis Bay area the work
, is in progress.
The President, on behalf of the Chamber has already-this year made three spe-
Cial -trips: 1-. ' The opening of the House,
Victoria; 2. Meeting of Associated Cham-
' bers, Mission City; 3. Twice to Powell
River Chamber.
Since January two extra meetings over
and above, the regular meetings have been
-held, one in January when Mayor Swain
and Jus aldermen joined with the Chamber Executive to discuss items of mutual
interest.  This meeting proved most helpful in obtaining views regarding ways and
means to improve and build' up the community of Secheit and surrounding areas.
On February %Z't 1S69 a special meeting of
the Executives of all three Chambers on
the „ Peninsula,   and. the   Powell   River
Chamber, also ^he Mayors of Powell River,
Gibsons' and Sechelti was held, with a
guest speaker, from the Vancouver Visit-
r ors and Convention Bureau, also a Representative from the B.C. Ferry Authorities,
and much useful information was received
andrhelpful discussion carried out. So the
Madeira Park School
for drop-in session
MADEIRA Park Elementary School will
, be 'the scene of a second drop-in session
for'adults and youth on Monday, April 28,
1969 at 7:30 p.m, in the Activity Room.
Subject of ithe drop-in session will be
a "Dialogue in Communications." The
drop-in will be sponsored by the student
councils of Pender Harbor -and Elphinstone Secondary Schools, Secheit Teachers'
Association and the Board of School Trustees, School District No. 46 (Secheit).
Dr. Bennett R. Wong, well-known Vancouver psychiatrist and popular speaker,
who made the keynote address at the El-
ihinstone Secondary School drop-in on
bnday, April 21, will have his speech-
featured on Educational TV at Madeira
Park. His speech will set the tone for
small group discussion between adults
and young people.
The drop-in session is the outgrowth of
a series of meetings, initiated Vy the
School Board, between students, teachers
and School Board members. This group
has become increasingly concerned about
-the misuse of drugs and alcohol in the
community and the lack of communications between and within generations.
Objective of the drop-in session is to
give both adults and young people a
chance to talk to each other about their
problems. Dr. Wong's address was designed to/ create the climate for such a

If we/did not have the resources and'the

- The path ahead for us points to a
search for a "better way." The search involves taking time out to examine basic
causes—to seek values which will permit
us to survive in the age of technology—
and this search must start with the.individual.
' To have a strong and viable society,
we must spread the responsibility for decision and 'action to the most practical

S. Browning  regarding the cruelty to cowboys by the  ��� bucking broncos.  If .Mr. Browning has nsver "seen an  injured bronc it is because he did not go  behind the scenes.  Moments before st horse is let out of  the chute, attendants, suddenly clinch a  budbng strap a'round the animal's body  in the area of the large and small intestines.  This strap is cinched to unbearable  tightness. Sometimes a sharp "pointed'  piece' of wire is placed under the flank  " or buck strap to add to the torture.  v To further ensure that the horses  and bulls Used in bucking exhibitions  will run into the arena, bucking constantly as if wild, sometimes electric  prods are applied to their bodies where  'electric shocks cause the greatest pain.  Mr. Browning is right when he says  that cowboys are injured during a rodeo  ' performance,  but  he should  remember  - that unlike the cowboy,- the animals involved most certainly cannot voice ftieir  " disapproval as to the way they" will be  ��Ji^|Mm.|.iiim.��1 <,r-yS,ipti..

Humane human-beings are not only  concerned with bucking exhibitions but  with steer-busting, chuckwagon racing  and calf roping. In steer-busting,' the  steer is roped around the horns, head or  neck and slammed to the ground on its  back or side by a rope that twists its  head around in.a neck-'breaking jerk ai  about 50 m.p.h.  In calf roping, the baby cow is subjected to great terror, pain and in many  cases the young animal has his neck or  back broken.  Actual pictures are available taken by  humane organizations officers showing  the horrible injuries performing animals  have receved.  I would like to suggest to Mr. Browning that instead of a look of satisfaction ~  on the face of the horse in defeating his  tormentor, the expression would indicate  his relief in knowing that at last there  might be an end to the harassment and  pain.  .

However, to ray astonishment I find  that Mr. Feeney receives what amounts to  $8.o6'an;hour for-sifting on the Board and  Mr. Watson had no- qualms it seems about  accepting twice that amount while he  was a member of the same board. ��Surely  this is a "high price in anybody's mohey  to pay for unskilled men.

Speaking/to about twenty nurses a*  the meeting held in the Welcome Cafe,  Gibsons, last week, Miss Graham stated  that the supply, of nurses today is better  than ii has ever'been since the depression  days..

Institute of Tech*  $63,000 fund a . ��  To'make ah effective "UgKthtttise" to  guide you back to camp at night beating  authorities suggest 'lining a wdodeh box  with aluminum foil and placing a lantern  inside.  SECHELT Sclwxrt District's reserve cap-  V ital'ftmd was explained to; The-Times  by* secretary-treasurer 'J. ��� Metzler, last  week. The'fund is made up' from previous  referenda7 surplus And refunds of federal  and provincial taxes. In the case of referenda surplus, 'half the money was an  actual grant from the provincial government, for in previous referenda the provincial contribution was fifty per, cent of  capital costs. In future referenda the  provtrttiarsbafe'will -be- 75 -per cent' of  capital costs. _  This fund which now stands at $63,000  has been, invested, in short. erm treasury  notes where" it earns - a substantial interest and is available for emergencies. Asked what wpuld be considered an emergency, Mr. Metzler explained .that often  expensive items of equiprhent are required  which could be purchased from this fund.  This would mean that instead of taxpayers  paying the full cost of the equipment  which could happen if it were included  in non-shareable section of the budget,  they would be purchasing it on a shareable basis. , ,  Such a fund is permftted by the Provincial Government.  fcdRHECtioft >  Capital .funds were used on extras  spent at Elphinstone, Gibsons and Lang-  dale schools, During August lffC8 Seh66t  Board meeting, trustees gave approval for  temporary fcoriov/irig' 6p refefehduni' No.  6 under section 190 oi PurMic Schools Act  for! expenditure/of $7,926 at Etph'iristyfte';  $1,573 at Gibsons Elementary find '$2,36tf  at Larigdalcj the��� necessary-ou'ib!pjt;ity was  never obtained but the money had actu-  nologjrtwilf/hold,its iirst graduation'ceremony tor seventy students who have completed the two-year program -iri general  nursing.   -  Preparation for practice as a registered  nurse is also provided in six schools of  nursing,, financed and 'controlled by general nospitals in the province. These are  three-year programs f ocussed primarily on  meeting r,(the needs of ihe patient in hospital. Miss Graham said that the RN.A.  of B.C. hopes that Regional Colleges will  eventually iake over the hospital programs, reducing them to two-year courses.  The university course takes four years to  complete.  Miss Graham said there is still a shortage of,male riurses although there has  been some^ianptoveirJent in the number  entering the profession.  Outlining activities of the professional  nurses lassoctotidn, the executive secretary  stated 'tiiat RNABC is active in two main  areas���under a public act of the Legislature it scrutinizes the calibre of people  (admitted -iiito'tthe Association both to safeguard the-public and the profession itself.
