 Talks this week  [overcraft, latest report  con  FIRST announcement of a proposed  hovercraft operation between Van*  couver, Gibsons and, Ijjpwell River, was  published in The Times -July 17th 1968.  Since that time the company, B.C. Hovercraft Ltd., has experienced the innumerable problems ahd delays which" inevi-"  tably impede. establishment of a new  enterprise. '* * ��  Following a lengthy, period of silence  by the company, worcji came to The Times  . this week that ;all is not lost and all being well, it is presently anticipated that  service will commence .this Spring.  Vice Prcsfdcttt of the company, John  Laing, explained that delivery of the two  craft has, been delayud due, in large-parV  to sale of the manufacturing business in  Britain to an American company in Dal*  1 las,  Texas.  Representatives    of   the manufacturer  -are expected   to -meet  this  week   \yjth  r  %       #        & <-*5  j^ -JLr.  ���rccf  LUCKY WINNERS  Names of winners of last month's Sun-  nycrest- Shopping Centre monthly draw  were Unobtainable .for last weeks Times.

Hydro herbicide spraying  along the righl-of ways.^Write to Dr. Harbor at the above address giving details of  damage.  CONFESSION  Already serving a term in Oakalla Prison Farm, a Gibsons youth sought an  interview with a member of the Gibsons  RCMP detachement to whom he confessed responsibility of thirteen cases of  break, entry and theft involving dwelling  houses and business premises during the  past two to three years.  LEAVING AREA  Rev. Barry Jenks who came to this  ���area four years age-will-be-greatly_n_isse_L���  when he leaves for Nanaimo on April 15.  His departure will leave a* vacancy on the  Board of School Trustees for his two year  term-of office will not expire until .December of this year.  PRIZE WINNERS  "%"T_��raw "prize 'winners at the opening'" of  the modernized .Village Coffee Shop, Sechelt were drawn by Times Publisher  Stewart Alsgard Monday evening^ January 19. Winners of the draw were: Grant  Hubbs, Doris Housley, Jim Hall.  executives of B.C. Hovercraft Ltd. to discuss delivery tl&e of the craft.  Mr. Laing^saures us that rumors to  the effect that plans for the''service have  beeri dropped, are totally untrue. "He  said "thousands of dollars have already  been invested in the project and it most  certainly would not be scrapped".  It will be recalled that at the original  meeting between representatives of B.C.  Hovercraft Ltd., members of Gibsons  Council and interested residents, it was  stated the service could start_within a few  months providing sufficient interest was  displayed-" by councils and0 responsible  bodies on the Sunshine Coast. Wholehearted ..uppui'l was'ultimately iridicated���  .and the Sunshine Coast dwaited the service with great interest.  -From that time on a number of problems evolved, two-of which appeared tot  be-approval for a hoverport in the vicinity of Vancouver and an operating licence. This was followed up January 8th.  19S9 with the announcement that the  company "*had been granted a nine year  exclusive Charter for the proposed service, and hopes, were that the craft would  be in operation by late spring of last year.  . Later on. in June, Mr. Laing infoi*med  The Times .that the two machines weie  nearing completion in Britain and provid- -  ing there were no further holdrUps, would  be operating by June. He.-paid the craft  would be the very latest'in design and  would make no more noise than a B.C.  Ferry, They wQuld have a cruising speed  of 40 mph with an average operating  speed of 35 mph.  Interior would be similar to a'**large  Boeing aircraf. with aircraft type seating,  two rest rooms and refreshments available.  At the end of June it was stated, the  vess^F-Tad been launched in Britain and  following tests, would be shipped out to  B.C. Service could then commence in  August of 1969.  On July 9 we published. a report by  the Company President, General T. J.  Manning stating that B.C. Hovercraft Ltd.  had reached an agreement with Grand  Shipping and Investment Co. Ltd. to use  the facilities at. the marina adjoining the  Lady Alexandra floating restaurant as the  company's down-town hoverport.  " The announcement added; B.C. Hovercraft Ltd. has been granted an exclusive  nine-year franchise by the Provincial  Government o_ B.C. to operate a Hover-  marine HM 2 hovercraft service between  -Vancouver, Gibsons, Texada Island and  Powell River.      .  Mr. Laing has since reported that Sechelt will be included as a stop, but, by  request only, to start.' -��� r.  *   Time saving,statistics"are; ''down-town  Vancouver to Gibsons 38 minutes; to Texada," 2" hours 28r-minutes and uto Powell  - River��2 hours 45 minutes.

High  expense and numerous details involved  are such that it would be virtually impossible to plan the event for this year.  Proposals were first put lo the Sechelt  and District Chamber of Commerce at  its Inst meeting of 1909" at which time  President Erich Hcnsch outlined details  and costs involved, Mr, Hcnsch said he  had been in conversation with a member  of the Harrison Lake Power Boat Association who had suggested Porpoise Buy  as an Ideal location for a regatta.  The regatta would, be n two day event,  Saturday and Sunday, with eighteen races  ouch day, Average speed of the racing  craft would be, 75 mph a top speed up to  1(H) mph, The Harrison Lake group would  enter between fifty and ninety boats,  Mr, Hcnsch suggested such a project  would entail support from Council,  Chamber of Commerce and possibly, the  Lions Club. He said "competitors would  nunc from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, as  well as many communities in the Province".  It will be necessary to put up $3,900 In  cash, This writiUl h:ivc to be guaranteed  before the event and payable In whole  prior to the^competition on the selected  clay. A drfetor has to ho on duty with a  boat, together with ambulance, patrol  boats, three f. male spotters to record position of racing boats, a barge and crane  for lowering )i*rger boats into the water,  portable toilets and concession booths.

C  The Peninsula Times Page A-3  Wednesday, January 21, 1970  Ottawa Report  ���The Times Ottawa Bureau  OTTAWA���In addition to being a best-  selling novel, "The Valley of the  Dolls" was a shocking description about  how peoples' lives.can become dependent  on little brightly coloured capsules that  can give them an "up" or a "down".  A   federally-appointed   committee  has  been looking into the valley of the dolls  in   Canada   and  has  been   disturbed   by-  what it has found.  Some reports, say it is more shocked  by  the enormous  use of  pep  pills kand  tranquilizers in Canada than by the bet-*  ter publicized spread of marijuana smoking.  Canadians will be tord just how bad  the situation is when the committee into  the non-medical use of drugs makes its  first report to Health and Welfare Minister John Munro before the end of January.  The report is expected to recommend  and result in great changes in the legal  attitude towards various drugs in Canada.  A call for tougher regulations on the  distribution of pep pills, tranquilizers and  sleeping pills is expected to be included  in. the report. The committee is also expected to attack tho medical profession. Statesman" a::paper dedicated to senior  for making these drugs too easy to come"'citizens and'all-pensioners, it was decided  by. ���"���".' -���       "   ��������� ���       '    "-  People who regularly us&, these drugs  come to have a dependence" "On them, thp  committee has been told." Generally it is  people in the .middlc-and high-income  groups who develop these dependencies  because they are the ones who can afford  the drugs.  When he appointed Ihe five-man committee, headed by Gerald Le Dairi", Dean  of Osgood Hall Law School, Mr. Munro  said he wanted it to look into the semilegal use of these drugs because it appears to be more widespread than the  more dramatic smoking of marijuana and  use of hallucinogens..such as LSD or  speed.  The committee has done so nnd its interim   could   give   him   the   backing1- he  heeds to enact  tougher, legal restrictions  on these drugs. (  The report is also cx|>ectod to give him  support for n move to cuse prosecution of  marijuana  smokers.  Mr. Munro has indicated that he believes changes are needed in the existing  laws     covering     mniijuana     possession,  These harsh  laws hiivo not  stopped  the  sprend  of  the  habit, Instead   they  have  merely given many young pcpple records  of convictions from which they may never   escape.   Thoy   hnvn  also   resulted   In  many  troubled  young people being  sent  to jail during a very formative period in  their lives. J  A    quick    legalization   o��   mnrljunna  possession   is  unlllcoly, howovor.  Instead,  lho commlttoo will ptobably  recommend  on  10-month  moratorium on  prosoaitlon   \f,,t >  of marijuana possessor!. if-  Such n mori'lorlimi would allow it to   h  study the effects of widespread open uso   11  of marijuana during III" remainder of lis".* j*j  Iwo-yeur life, |v  A   niornUiriiim   would   have   eoiinldei*.  able iidvnntii:<i.�� over a change In the law,  It could be easily instituted through a  change In administration procodureu and  quickly repealed the name way if the  need  to do no became evident,  IT studies during an IH-month moratorium rihowrd marljiiiiiia had no harmful social, pliyclologlciil or psychological  effects, the drug might Muneday be made  as legally  oh'alnahlc, us   liquor.

This week  Hayley Mills stars in "The Parent Trap",  an amusing Walt Disney presentation,  with Hayley taking a dual role.  In the story two teenagers who meet  at a summer camp discover that they are  exact look-alikes and as the film progresses they discover-that there is*much more  to the situation that just a similarity in  appearance. From there the plot explodes  into much meiriment and confusion. Also  starring in th<* proceedings are Brian  Keith and Maureen O'Hara.  ���o��  ���,<*'  s  ."ffe  word became unpopular from the British  example, but austerity is what it is) the  treasury board is the ministry chiefly responsible for saying no. Treasury deals  with civil service unions, and says no4to_  the initial wage demands and maybe for  later demands. It is treasury which insists that money may be spent only after  the requisite number of forms be made  out in quintuplicate.' Treasury can find  an almost limitless number of reasons for  not paying people money. - * y '*"  <-���My' secretary, who is among the most  astute political observers on the hill, provided me a simple formula to apply to  all dealings with treasury board:  "If there is any shadow of doubt as to ...  whether the government owes you money,  treasury's answer is a firm no."  However, in this column I shall not  attempt to weigh the.meritsW treasury  board operations, beyond saying that it  is my conviction that every government  needs at least one firm, brave and un-.  equivocal nay-sayer, but that I suspect  that some of the red tapeL involved in  spending controls costs more than it is  worth. The column is more directly devoted to-considering the man who holds  one of the most unpopular jobs in any  government���that of the Abominable No-  Man.

That is the message the B.C. Centennial Sub-Committee on Youth Activities  is sending to schools dnd youth agencies"  throughout the Province in hopes of receiving new, young ideas on ways to celebrate the 1971 Centennial.  The B.C.  Centennial Committee says  "there is nothing more establishment than  'a government committee" but that they  earnestly want to hear the ideas of the  young people in the-Province;       The Committee places no restrictions  on the type of idea they are" looking for.  Ideas can be in the form of permanent  projects such as buildings, sports facilities, arts and community centres," or  events like rock festivals, sports'and arts  rallies.  Preferably, the Committee would like  something entirely new, in a category" all  its own. ._..-.>.  Two such ideas submitted to date are  a touring pop-rock festival of B.C. groups  like the Collectors and the Poppy Family  that ^would visit in towns throughout the  Province and a suggestion that the PGE  give free summer passes in 1971 so that  everyone can rediscover the beauty of  British Columbia.

We do not criticize the jujges in this  particular situation for there is little they  can do. It is only right that punishment  must be meted out, otherwise it would  be open house all round. At .the same  time, it is totally wrong that the onus  should rest with parents. In other words,.  it would seem, sonic" other means of  retribution should be devised. Certainly  nothing hurts more than an attack on the  pocket book but when the pocket book  belongs to someone else then the fine  is virtually painless.  . Most communities have a works department and there are always jobs call-  Jng for manual labor. It might prove a  workable proposition to level sentences  of work stints to an amount equivalent  to the fine. This could have the effect  of saving struggling parents as well as  introducing junior to a few hard facts  of life.  Many other changes are badly needed as it made abundantly clear by reports  in the Vancouver-daily press. There are  times when the publie might be well  justified in asking whether some of the  learned judges are on the side of crime.  AVe can only hope the Attorney General  is aware of the sorry situation and plans  drastic renovations in his backyard.

Qn/the other hand, there are times  when judges are unfairly criticized simply  because they administer the law as prescribed. There arc instances whereby an  offence has-been committed, the culprit  deserv.es all he gets but the sentence  handed down has far greater" repercussions, on relatives or other people. Unfortunately, a situation wherein the judge  has no alternative.  A case in. point, and by no means  an isolated one, involves the young fellow who repeatedly commits motor vehicle offences. After ii few appearances-  in court, it becomes quite obvious he is  about to face either a heavy fine, jail, or *  both. This, in effect, is as it should be  for society demands protection from irresponsible drivers, fiowever, the sad  situation, in far too many cases, is that  the accused lacks the fine and naturally  neither he nor his family wish to see him  go to prison, so, who gets caught?.good  old hard working parent.

Others arc of use chiefly for the-  protection they afford to soil and watersheds, while others, again, are best suited for recreational and park area. Many  forests have more than one major value.  For example, a forest which is particularly valuable for wood, production may  be equally valuable for watershed protection and as a habitat for game animals  and other wildlife.  EDUCATION'AL standards have shown  a steady improvement over the years  and despite any short-comings there remains little doubt the majority of Canadians today earn considerably more and  enjoy much higher living standards than  ever before. In general, it would be a  fair assumption to suggest, a good basic  education is responsible for-our present  affluent society. ..*��  Unfortunately, somewhere along the  line, an essential ingredient seems to have  diminished to insignificance, that of honesty, or respect for other people's "property. Shoplifting has reached -such proportion that it has developed into a fine  art. Indeed, so popular has this'occupation Become that it would not be too surprising to hear of formation of a Brotherhood of Shoplifters.    .  There was a time'when locking the  doors of a home was unheard of. Today  it is difficult to understand anyone who  fails to keep the doors locked.

An example may be gained from a  recent report by MacMillan Uloedel Ltd,  drawing attention to the tremendous losses incurred by the logging industry each  year as the result of theft and vandalism,  <WIB��.r  ���by Maureen I'aquctte;  THE SEA  Along |hc line of moinini*. niuuI,  A silver tide sinus, in;  Crispin*.:.

Other companies  have similar problems.  A spokesman for the company says  that significantly, incidence of thefts and  vandalism increases during hunting season.   However, he emphasized that this  does not mean hunters arc the only offenders since a small clement of non-  hurjiers take advantage of the hunting  season in the fall tb. damage and,steal,  equipment.   "In fjfet,  members of the  B.C. Wildlife Federation arc particularly  responsible people and have an appreciation of the advantage of free public  use of company logging roads," he said.  The report adds that in 1969, thefts  and vandalism cost the company more  than $2 11000 of which one-third occurred  during September and October, open period of the hunting season.       "The type arid scope of the. thefts  and damage to equipment is incredible,"  said the company spokesman.  Significant- comment by the spokesman worthy of consideration by the public as a whole, for it applies in other  fields also, "the public has a big stake  in the industry's public access program  and we earnestly appeal for.their support  and co-operation,  "The public can help discourage and  eliminate the few who are spoiling public access for the majority by taking car  license number of suspected vandals and  thieves and reporting them to RCMP or  personnel office of the company involved."

Readers Right  Project  Editor, The Times,  Sir; After reading in your paper that  Mr. L. J. Wallace, who is General Chairman of the British Columbia Centennial  Committee, hopes everyone in B.C. will  take part in 1971 celebration of the Centennial of B.C.'s entry into Confederation  and will start planning for it now. Personally I am going to start a scrap book  on the history of the Sunshine Coast. I  feel I would I'ike to know more about it.  Although I have lived here at Welcome  Beach four years, 1 never could find out  from anyone our local history. Many  times I have wondered how Merry Island,  Thormandy Island, Texada Island and  Welcome Pass got their names. I see all  these places before "me from my home. It  is a beautiful spot ju. all times and it is  interesting to watch the various boats go  through Welcome Pass.  I used to '.hink maybe Welcome Pass  got its name because the mariner in a  storm welcomed it. For in rough weather  even the larger boats pass through here  as the waters are protected by Merry Island and Thovmanby. The light-house on  Merry keeps a constant Vigil with its  beacon light. On the rare occasions wlien  ft is foggy, we hear the drone of the foghorn. That to mo is a welcome sound for  I feel All is well when I hear it.  Over Chri-Jmas 1 was given a book  with the following information about all  these places. Apparently the officers of  H.M. Survey Ship Plumper were the  sporting type. In 1860 * they not only  named Thormanby- Island after the horse  that won the Derby that year, but named  the nearby island for Mr. Merry the owner of the~hor.:e. Welcome Pass commemorates the welcome ne,ws qf Thqrtrfan-  by's victory.  Texada Island was given its name by  the Spanish navigator Elizn and i*; Known  on his chart of 1701 as "Islu de Texada".  He named it after Felix de Tejada, a  Spanish rear- .dmlral.

Today we recognise the name as  attached to Egmont Point and again as  the name of the village which lies across  the water , from'the point.  "Loggers and fishermen were attracted  to the area in the late 18Q0's. During that  time the Moody ville Saw Mill Company  leased land, near where the village, of  Egmont now is and the B.C.

By 1905 Egmontv was listed for the  first-time in,the British Columbia Directories but only as a place name. "  Joe Gregson, who resides at Sechelt,  recalls he left Egmont in the winter of  1907 -1908-. At ..that time Joseph Silvcy  with his wife and two children lived in  the area. Also living there were Joseph's  brother, Emanuel Silvcy, with his wife  and child, and "two single men^ George  Walter Vaughan and H. P. Newton.' Across  the.water, near where the village now is,  there was a Japanese "logging camp.  In the 1910 B.C. Directories Egmont is  listed as a logging camp<4pcated at Egmont Point.  During the years from 1910 through  1913 several settlers pre-empted land in  the area. Many of these homesteads were  later abandoned and reverted to the  Crown but some early settlers remained  and their children or grandchildren still  live in the area, many of them on the  original family homesites.  Cecil Killam pre-empted land in the  -fall of 1912 and though it later reverted  ���by Pol Kenoyer  , i  we still know the bay his land bordered  .on as Killam Bay.  In 1911 John Wray pre-empted land  and^ in 1913 Joseph Silvey pre-empted  land near Egmont Point. In June of that  year George Vaughan took land nearby.  Alfred Jefferics is listed as another early  pre-empter.-  ���'"���-���' The SNvey property was the centre of  local life in those days because it was the  site of the Bailey's Coast Stores, with  which was connected the post office with  Leonard Bailey serving as postmaster.  There was also a school building on the  property.  Sometime after 1918 the Bailey's Coast  ~::Stgre=was=destfo>'ed-by=firo. And^y=l^)25-  the B.C. Directories list the post office  and landing as being across the water at  the present-day site of Egmont. G. Hata-  . shita is listed as owning the general store  and as fish buyer. There were nine additional pre-emptions in the area by 1925  and many more residents living there who  are not listed as pre-emtgers.  The facts: the names and dates, are  the framework of our area's history. But  it's the'true stories of the hardships of  those early settlers and their courageous  and individual reactions to those hardships which make us listen with awe  and respect to that history.  ��lake C.
