AFFLUEhiT-EFFLENT  Winding up her Address to the 29th  Legislative Assembly of B.C. Hon. Isabel  Dawson spoke at length on pollution and  ended with "Surely if science can put  a man on the moon he can devise a  washing . compound that can give, the  whitest wash yet" leave not a doubt as  to whether it "contains a possible' pollutant." Such a washing compound, said  Mrs. Dawson would safeguard the home-  maker: and her family artd indeed the  community from the pollution malaise  of their era, thus making an affluent  rather than an efflent society.   .  would have received fix thousand brochures together with a plug in another  brochure. Some thirty communities were  expected to participate in the programme  and an estimate of $25,000 has been  indicated as cost of administration.  Chamber President Joe Benner stated  a small building which was (the original  Sechelt jail had been offered free to Jthe  Chamber for use as a tourist bureau. If  placed on wheels for removal during off  season months, a site had been offered  by Ted Farewell fronting Peninsula  Motor's Ltd., on the highway.  It was argued that an extensive advertising promotion at this time would *  be wasted due to limited accommodation  and the fact that presently we have'little  to offer visitors and not even a boat rental  exists. It would therefore be far wiser  to put such funds that are available into  a bureau which can be used each year  and would prove an attraction to existing tourist influx.

"As soon as wc  have determined the* amount of essential  classroom construction that is needed, it  will ho allowed to proceed", he said.  At tho suggestion of the Minister,  School Trustees of the Province hpve  formed n committee, under the chairmanship of Mr. Peter Obcrlnndcr, chairman of the Vancouver School Board, to  make a careful study of new means and  methods of economical school construction. Mr. Brothers said he hopes to have  the committee report by the end of March  and has asked tho committee to advise  him on how such a programme could be  implemented.  EDUCATION COSTS  Cost of the instructional unit has been  raised from $11,0(10 In 1009-70 to $12,000.  The instructional unit, made up of 30  elementary or 20 secondary students (or  fractions .hereof) is used In determining  a school district's basic education programme. The Instructional unit cost Is  determined by dividing all approved  operating cost's,of all school districts during the previous,,year b.V the total number  of instructional units In,the Province.  Number of Instructional units in a  school district multiplied by the unit  cost, plus the cost of certain auxiliary  services, Is Urn dintt'let cost in which the  Government   will  share.

With attention of nil pnrtles to Ihese  comments and recommendations during  this year, the Director said, the Hospital  should find Itself very close to full accreditation in the near future.  Accreditation gives the hospital recognition of its efforts to attain and  maintain high standards of service to  patients.  It gives the Medical Staff assurance  that their patients will benefit from Ihe  services of well trained' personnel In all  ureas of the hospital.

School' regulations had  been broken; drinking and "pot" smoking had taken place and _ Board did not  indicate whether or not' it' condoned such  action.  A recommendation made on the report  which was submitted by secretary treasurer Jim Metzler was removed by majority decision of trustees. The recommendation stated "that only duly constituted  and bone fide organizations be permitted to rent school facilities".  Mr. Metzler warned that the School  Board has to assume liability if something happens at a dance on school property and that is why, he made the recommendation.  District Superintendent Mr. R. R.  Hanna also warned that trustebs are  trustees of school property, if fire regulations were not obeyed, ifmay not be possible to claim insurance in the event of  fire.  Building Superintendent Mr. Rutter  told the Board that he only closed the  dance because of the smoking rule. The  young people were smoking heavily and  Wouldn't listen. Although he saw no-one  under the Influence, quite a few bottles  were found but no liquor bottles which  was unusual at a dance of this type.  Trustee Wm Mulcolm who fully condoned use of school facilities for young  people's dances, commented that this was  obviously one of the better dances. He  felt ko long as tho group renting thu  auditorium were local people and taxpayers, they were entitled to rent tho  .    hall.  Trustee Agnes Labonte replied that  probably an equal number of taxpayers  were interested In good wholesome  functions for young people.  Rev. Barry Jenks felt that it was all  in the minds of people who saw something which upset them ond the reactions  ���.i*' of two or three people gave an indication  of why there are not more activities ot  this kind. "People get up tight when  they see certain things," ho said and added that if school rentnls nre limited to  bona fide groups It will kill young people  groups.  Mr, Metzler commented that he himself could now sec a loopholo in the.  "duly constituted group" recommendation  for he would assume that the "Hell'.*)  Angels" were such a group and would  be eligible to rent the school auditorium.  Regarding the four listed chaperons  who were not present, Rev. Jenks wondered what age a chaperon would have to  be fnr he thought,, the group renting the  hull were nil over 21 years of age How-  rver trustees Sheila Kll^on, Malcolm nnd  Mulligan all agreed that rhapfrons should  be presrnl,  Board Chairman Rhielo Kitson referred to concern of three parents who Iclc  phoned the Board office wanting In know  how they could he sure II a dance was  kcIuioI sponsored, Mo-.I trustees fell this  wfts �� parent-mtiKlenl problem.

Here is an explanation for the benefit of those who are interested in knowing what they are talking about when  sewage treatment is the subject.  Sewage is essentially the wastes of  human existence. The used water supply  of a community, the liquid and solid"  body wastes, household Wastes and often  industrial wastes combine to form the  sewage of a modern community. In times  of rain it can contain large amount of  grit which may enter the sewer direct  if the community has a combined sewerage system, i.e. sanitary waste and storm1  water in the same system. If a community  has a separate domestic sewer system,  grit may enter through a loose manhole  cover, broken" tiles, basement drains, or  from washing vegetables.  Average sewage is usually at least  99.95% water by weight, but the remaining .05% of the sewage will do unlimited  damage if not properly treated. Sewage is  ^ extremely putrescible, containing large  numbers of bacteria, many of which are  ot the disease-producing type and if not  treated in a short time will decompose and  give off large quantities of malodorous  and poisonous gases. If discharged" untreated into a body of water, this will  become so polluted that fish life Will be  killed.  t A sewage treatment plant is built for  the purpose of removing this objectionable material from the sewage so that  a clear, pure effluent can. be discharged  into the creek, river or lake. The effluent*  should be sufficiently pure so that it  will not produce odors, harm fish life or  carry disease-producing bacteria.  An activated sludge; sewage treatment  plant treating normal domestic sewage  Will give the highest quality effluent that  can be produced by any type of plant  at the present time.  The treatment of sewage consists of  three separate processes or steps:  1. Primary treatment, consisting ofj^rif  removal, comminution and primary  sedimentation.  2. Secondary treatment, or the activated  sludge process, consisting of aeration  and final sedimentation (settling).  3. Sludge digestion and  drying.  Primary treatment by sedimentation  will remove 30 to 40% of the organic  load. Secondary treatment by biological  action and sedimentation will remove almost all of the remaining suspended and  dissolved organic material to yield an  overall reduction from raw- to final, of  90 to 98%. Sludge digestion converts the  highly decomposable organic material,  which has been removed from the sewage,  to a stable, inoffensive sludge.  In the Gibsons Sewage Treatment  Plant sewage enters the wet well through  a barminutor (shredding device). Pumps  lift the sewage to the grit or sand trap  where heavy inorganic matter--settles  out. From there it continues to the primary settling tanks where organic solids  are settled out. The primary effluent  flows through channels into'the aeration  tanks. Diffused air applied to the sewage  brings purifying bacteria (aerobic) to life,  ��� The aerator effluent enters secondary  settling tanks where the "bacteria, called  "activated sludge," is .settled out. Part is  returned to the aeration tanks and part  is pumped to the digester.  The final effluent flows through the.  chlorine contact tank, over a 90 degree  "V" notched weir, which -controls the  flowmeter and chlorine feeding, into the  outfall.  Ihe^sludge is periodically pumped to  the drying beds. The dried sludge, composted with leaves and other material, is  used as a soil conditioner or lawn dressing. It is high in nitrogen.

Trustees referred the matter to* -the  planning committee,at .last week's meeting of tho Ba#rd',  EMERGENCY CLASSROOMS  .Reporting on a meeting with the Department's Assistant Superintendent, Mr.  J. Phillipson, Board chairman Sheila  Kitson stated that he seemed sympathetic  toward the district's requirements and  the matter how rests With the Minister of  Finance. �� J"���., *  Emergency requirements presented included a one room addition to Langale;  six classrooms at Sechelt and a further  two laboratories and a growing area to  be built on top of the wing just completed  at Elphinstone. -*  Secretary treasurer Jim Metzler expressed some concern that' the cdnstruc-  tion may not be permitted under emergency conditions set out in the. Public  Schools Act. He stated that even after  cabinet approves it may still be necessary  to go Jo Referendum which would mean  presenting another referendum to the  people and a six months delay.  Superintendent R. R. Hanna warned  that this Was just second guessing and if  a referendum has to be presented why  not present referendum No, 10, which is  the one Board was working oh When-Victoria notified Boards not to present con-'  struction referenda in December.  TEACHERAGES  Board owned teacherages in the\ Pender Harbour area are aio longer occupied  by teachers arid upkeep is becdrru^g'ebst-"  ly. The one at Kleindale will cost an estimated ��635 for upkeep ire" 1970 arid" is,  rented jft $78.50 month. Another in Madeira Park will cost an estimated $710 in  repairs during 1970 arid is rented for $60/  per month? Trustee Ganshorn recommended that the Finance Committee evaluate  the situation and, cither decide to raise the  rent or dispose of the building at Madeira  Park. If the property is sold the money  goes into the shareable capital sinking  fund, said,Mr. Metzler.  il  HOLIDAY  When a seemingly reluctant trustee  Dave Ganshorn was finally persuaded &  that teachers were permitted one day a  year to attend a Department of Education  approved Convention; the Board agreed  that all elementary schools be closed on  March 6. Topic of the convention will be  Individualized Instruction and trustees  were invited to attend.  A movie theater in Oregon caters to  the sobbing types.

Action instituted  .iwciiiis did traffic patir��]  * *  with purchase of equipment  GIBSONS Kiwanis Club has undertaken  to buy new equipment for the school  traffic patrol at Gibsons Elementary  School.  The patrol which was suspended recently because motorists were no longer  paying attention the students is ,now  back in operation. To assist further the  Board will ask Department of Highways  to re-paint the- crosswalk and remove  obstacles such as trees and bushes which  impede visibility.  Board will also ask the proper authority to replace the dotted passing line on  the highway from the Super Valu Plaza  to the elementary scliool with n double,  'no passing line.  Other recommendation approved by  the Board is to seek Department of Education permission to change school hour.,  nt Gibsons Elementary School. Lunch  hour will end at 12:50 intftend of 1 p.m.  and home-time will change to 2:50 from  3 p.m. This will allow children to clear  the crosswalk before ferry traffic is  heavy and nlno relievo pedestrian traffic  congestion which occurs when both the  high Kchool nnd elementary school utu-  tlcntH nro returning from lunch nt tho  same time,  A further recommendation that the  school  yard   bo  opened  up for  parking  cars was referred to the Planning Committee. Trustee Mulligan thought that the  school buses should pull onto School  Road to load and unload children rather  than doing it on the main highway.  Superintendent R. R. Hanna reported  that the student 5c bus was back in operation in Gibsons. Students pay 5c each  and the cost of the bus is self supporting1.

During the  summer months the plants detached and  floated upon' the beaches where our  dogs eagerly caught them .and ��� nibbled  on the puffy- ends.  During cool weather we gather this  seaweed to use in our cooking.  Our favorite way of using it is to  pour two or three inches of water into  a large kettle, then line it with a few  inches of rockweed. On this we lay  scrubbed?- whole potatoes, carrots, and  other long cooking vegetables we wish  to eat. All around and over them we" pack  more of the'seaweed. Then we-tightly  cover the pan and cook for about twenty  minutes. Next we uncover the kettle  and finish filling it with any quick cooking vegetables we have and with clams  (whose-shells have been scrubbed to remove the sand) or fish fillets wrapped in  aluminum foil. We top all this with more  rockweed and steam until done. The seaweed imparts a special flavor to all the  foods in the.kettle, which our family  thinks is great.  We also steam eggs in this seaweed.  The eggs absorb the spiciness of the  rockweed .through their shells. It takes  about twenty minutes for the eggs to become hard-cooked. When served on toast  and under a mild mustard sauce, this is  a tasty dish. ,  A. few sprigs of rockweed cooked in  clam chowder, fish> chowder, oyster stew,  or potatoe soup add a good flavor. I add  less salt when cooking with the seaweed  for it supplies its own.  I have read of people who diy this  seaweeed, crush it to a fine powder, and  put it in salt shakers to be used as a  seasoning. I haven't tried it but feel it  would work very well.  *  The little weed is too tough to be  eaten itself. Its flavor, however, is such  that I think it will go well in a variety  oi dishes besides those T have tried it in.  It adapts itself particularly well to other  seafoods and to bland vegetables.  St. Pierre . . ���  RACK' Bencher's Day in the House, it  was called by Steve Otto, outspoken  Liberal- Member of Parliament for York  JJasTin Toronto..  The Parliament of Canada hadn't seen  a comparable day in its history. A private  member (Paul Yewchuck, Conservative,  Athabasca) had moved concurrence in a  committee report on Arctic ..sovereignty  without authorization of the committee.  The government was dragged reluctantly into a debate.  The leading government party speaker,  Paul St. Pierre (Liberal, Coast-Chilcotin)  opened a 40 minute speech to the House  with a firm ���declaration of his intention,  to vote for the Opposition motion.  Almost a , dozen other Liberal back  benchers, including several British Columbians, were crowded off the speaker's  list during the full day's debate. "Two  ministers joined in the debate and one,  Mitchell Sharp, Secretary of State for  External Affairs, praised the report and  said the government was generally sympathetic to the forceful views exposed  in it.  Sharp Said the government would  shortly bring down legislation to control  the threat of pollution in the Arctic.  St. Pierre, in leading the debate for  the Liberals in the House, said he was  impatient with the. government attitude  on Arctic sovereignty declarations. Action  did not follow its words, he said, and he  urged a unanimous vote*.in favor of the  Committee's 'recommendations. " "*    '���;";  . The Coast CUil.cotmMP.{.a.a. he-doubled the wisdom of Parliament treatirig  committee reports in the manner initiated  by the Conservative party in the "debate.  The effect, he said, might weaken committees rather than strenghtenirig them in  their work. But he praised fellow members of the Northern Development Committee   of  other  parties  and  his   own,  specifically the chairman (Watson) and  Bud Simpson (Conservative-Churchill)  for their work. He also criticized the Opposition parties generally for discussing  Biafra during Opposition Days in the  House while ignoring issues closer to  what he claimed were their responsibilities as "responsible" opposition parties.  St. Pierre was criticized by Opposition. Leader Robert Stanfield and Liberal  MP Otto for his opposition to Conservative party tactics but praised for his consistent work to force the government to .  act on the Arctic sovereignty-poftutipn  issue.-  Opposition Leader Stanfield said "I  wish also to congratulate the hon. member for Coast Chilcotin who. although  he criticized me somewhat in the process, had the courage to take a strong position, the concurrence in this report and  the adoption by the government of the  position taken by the committee in this  report.

Under the leadership of new Noble  Grand, Mrs. Bernice Chamberlain, the  group decided to work to provide i!urrush-  ings for the proposed Senior Citizens*  Housing Project in Gibsons. In that .connection, members embarked immediately  oh the construction of a patchwork quilt  under the chairmanship of Mrs. Alice  Cherry. One 'quilt is well on the way and  a second is in the planning stage. Any  donations of "patches" or related materials would be most welcome.  The Arbutus ladies are also saying Nabob coupons towards the same project. If  anyone has coupons not "spoken for" 'the  group would be pleased to make good use  . of them.  ' Apart from thi�� special Project involving the Sem^r Citizen^^ousmg, the Arbutus Rebekahs a branch of trie Independent Order of. Oddfellows, have several  projects which are sponsored on an organizational basis. These include,: the  World Eye Bank and Research into diseases of the eyes in Rochester, New York;  The United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth  whereby "young people of High School  age are encouraged to compete for the privilege of taking part* in an Annual trip  through the United States and. Canada to  the United Nations. Several local children have been represented on thes Pilgrimages.  Oddfellows and RebekahsMiave a Summer camp at White Rock for children, who  otherwise would not enjoy the pleasure  of such a holiday for financial or health  reasons. The B.C". groups also, support a  home in Newton for older members of  the organization.  In addition to these organizational  sponsored. projects, the Arbutus. Rebekahs  have made substantial donations to St.  Mary's Hospital in Sechelt and assisted  on many occasions in community affairs,  financially and otherwise. Some" of the  'members are now reaching the age when  they can no longer be as active as -their  hearts and minds wish. They are looking  for young women with a sense of responsibility towards their families and neighbours, and whose visions will shape the  future.  Any lady interested in joining this forward, lookig group, the Arbutus Rebekahs of Gibsons, may contact any of the  listed officers. The fee to join is $5 and the  yearly* dues are $5.

Mrs. Tibb reported a very successful  day at the "Thrift Shop on Jan. 31 and  suggested a thorough canvas should be  made for new stock of articles for sale.  A suggestion was put to the meeting  - that perhaps a bake sale and tea might  be hold later in the spring, but this was  tabled for further consideration as there  were at least two ether projects under  way at the present time.  Two new members were welcomed  and at the close of ihe meeting refreshments were served.  ***u*ki  tutit*Mtm^mil\t*\i>l tl H��� HTn'l III  PHWlHfl"IM ipi-^wipw  zssz  rprWIW^^WIjrw  nllr.y-1  ATTENTION!

Gibsons ,  Section B  Report substantiated . . .  Wednesday. February 18,1970  Pages 1-6  Report of pot smoking and drinking at  a recent dance held in the Elphinstone  School auditorium has been described  by a few individuals as exaggerating and  it has suited the purpose of two or three  such people to accuse The Times of sensationalism.  In actual fact the report was simply  quoted from a statement made at a meeting of the Sechelt and District Chamber  oi Commerce which in turn requested  information from the Board. of School  Trustees. Assurances were also sought  that schpol property would not be put  to such use in future.  The following report was submitted to  the Board last week by Secretary Treasurer Jim Metzler and bears out the Times  report except that it does not substantiate  claims of people being seen,in stages oi  undress. However, "a young "persbh"who  was present submitted a letter which  was published in last week's Times and .  which . states two hippy types were  parading bare from the waist up.  Mr. Metzler states:  The maintenance supervisor. Mr. Rutter", reported to me as follows:  "Re: Dance, Elphinstone, January 24,  1970.  The Secretary of the Sunshine Company, J. R. Snider made application for  the use of Elphin.iUir.c Gym to hold a  dance. This booking was processed in  the normal manner but with two extra  requirements: (1) six chaperons, (2) profit  donated to public benefit. -  At approximately 11:15 p.m. the  R.C.M.P. Corporal phonod stating that  there was drinking and pot smoking nt  the dance. I got dressed and went to the  school and invcsti^-ilcd outside and inside. The main lights wore out in the  gym, several projectors were operating  and the area heavy with smoke. Although  I saw only one hot lie of beer, our servicing janitor had seen more earlier.  The two R.C.M.P. officers on duty  were consulted and they concurred with  my decision to terminate the dance as  quickly   and  quietly  as  possible.  To minimize hard feelings and property damage. I told Mr. Snider to start  the last dance nt ll:-50. An announcement  was made referring to tho possibility of  no more dances due to violation of smoking regulations In spite of numerous requests to .stop .smoking,  The participants left quietly and were  out  of tho stihool   by   11:57���p.m.   I   then  went to the Police Station and left a  message for the Corporal stating action  taken."  The incident was *��� checked out with  Corporal Biggeman, Officer in Charge of  the local R.C.M.P. and with Constable  Cameron the investigating officer. They  reported substantially the same as Mr.  Rutter. The Janitor ��� at the school telephoned at 10:30 p.m. and Constable Cameron investigated. tJpon entering he  detected the smell of marijuana and noticed a number of assorted bottles on  the floor. An.intermission was in progress  and while the crowd was noisy it was  not disorderly. He did not see anyone in  a state of undress. He reported back and  Corporal Biggeman had another officer  sent down from the Sechelt detachment  as.a precaution. Mr. Rutter .arrived at  11:40 p.m. and the dance terminated  shortly after. Between Constable Cameron's visit and Mr. flutter's arrival, most  of the empty bottles had apparently been  disposed of. Mr. Rutter informed me he  did not see any disorderly conduct while  he was there.  Three parents telephoned the Board  Office having let their respective sons and  daughters attend under the impression it  had "been a school sponsored * function.  They were told that the school had no  part whatever. During discussion with  these parents, two confirmed that their  children" had seen some drinking and  thought someone was smoking marijuana, one stated their daughter had not  seen anyone drinking in the hall itself  and didn't know anything about marijuana. All three wore unaware of any  scenes  of  undress  or  undue  behaviour.  S u n-i m a r y :  1    There was no question that drinking  occurred; ' ���  2. It is very likely one or more persons  had  used  marijuana;  3. There did not .scorn to, he any evidence  to   substantiate   the  "undress"   statement; .       /���  The  chaperons  wore  not  evident;  Tho   investigating   policemen   showed  good   judgement   In    the  manner    in  which he' attended.  The dance was "not a school function;  The  Board  Is  satisfied  that Building  nnd    Grounds    Supervisor,   Mr,   Bob  Itutter   acted   In   tho  host  'Intercut   of  tho Hoard;  ���1.

The week, which will run until Sunday February 22, features a very special  celebration, being the 50th Anniversary of  the  founding  of Kinsmen. The  Friday February 20, will be he!  Dogwood Room in the B.C. Building  the P.N.E.  Kinsmen Week honours the founding  of the Kinsmen movement by Harold A.  Rodgers OBE, in Hamilton, Ontario in  1920. From that small beginning the organization has extended so that today  there are Kinsmen Clubs in more than  435 communities throughout Canada.  The Association of Kinsmen Clubs is  a truly Canadian organization of young  Business and Profession men, 21-40 years  of age, gathered together for the purpose  of service and fellowship. A natural and  spontaneous outgrowth of Kinsmen has  been the "K-40", which is an association  for all Kinsmen who have passed the age  - of forty. In recent years many of the kinsmen wives hp3j�� also formed their own organization, 'calling themselves Kinettes.  Two of the main objectives of Kin are  to carry on sevice work in their communities and to develop character through  modern business and professional methods and ethics.  .....    ���from the Legislature, Victoria  TWO WEEKS debate on the Throne  Speech l\ave been completed, with  many interesting and well prepared  speeches by both old and new members.  ^Friday, February 6, Honorbale W. AC.  * Bennett as Minister of Finance presented  the 18th budget of his administration.  Expenditures for. the fiscal year which  commences April. 1, 1970, estimate a record 1,165,400,000, an increase of 141,387,000  over the 1909 budget and an increase of  nearly 14 percent. Mr. Bennett stated that  tl.p governments first policy of the new  decade is for people-to-provide continuing  improvement in government services  through increased social and economic  benefits. Some of the highlights are:  1���Home owners grant increased from  $150 to $160.  ���2���Supplementary  allowance    to  old  age pensioners increased to provide  income to maximum of $150.  3���Social allowance rates increased $5  for each head of household and each  dependent.  A���Nursing home social assistance  rates increased $35 a month to  maximum of $280 and boarding  home rates increased $15 a month  to a maximum of $35.  5���Municipal per capita grants increased $2 per capita from $28 to  $30.  6���Provincial home acquisition grants  to allow a $500 grant or $2500 second mortgage for purchase of older  homes, 25 million was added to  fund to allow for this. -  7���Increase of 17 million over 1969  for local school districts with a  total of 158 million.  8���Expenditures for universities and  colleges totalling 109,485,000, an  increase of 20,770,000 over current  year. University grants are in-  sed 12 million over current  i>ear.  even million provided for civil  service salary adjustments.  0���Greater succession duty exemptions with valuation of survivor's  pension increased from $100 to $250  a month and family home to be  ._   totally exempt.  As the budget debate progresses and  the estimaste of the various ministers  comes up on the floor of the House more  details of the many changes will be expanded. All in all I find it a most interesting session and am looking forward to  not only the department estimates but  also to the legislative bills which will be  introduced shortly.

It would be tempting to comment on  many aspects of it. Space doesn't permit. The figure^ below will have to  speak for themselves.  I offer only a couple of very brief  observations.    "  It's impressive rhot on some questions,  many people mark an honest "O". to  indicate they lack th<�� information needed  to make a judgment. So do I, on many  many matters. But in politics there is  always a tendency toward instant judgment of all matters, and the fact that  Coast Chilcotin respondents marked "O"  when they felt so. indicates to me that  they were spending t>ome time and  thought on the poll.  A strange fKing-emerged���from -the  last section, which asks for definition of  Canada's major problem. Under the  heading "other", only two people marked  housing. Yet housing ��� remember? ���  was a major issue in the recent election f  and the problem has not yet been solved.  Perhaps the answer lies in the fact that  the poll sought opinion as to the "major"  problem. Many people may agree that  there's a problem in housing, but they  dbrti consider it the nation's worst.  Response  to  all  the  questions  is as  follows:  CONSTITUTION:  1.

After a singsong, with music supplied,  by Mr. and Mrs. Fritz Leuchte, the members threw themselves with abandon into  acting Charades, with just about everybody participating.  One charade acted' out was "Happy  Birthday" which was a tribute to Mr.  Hugh Duff who was celebrating his natal  day. A special tribute was paid to Mrs.  Leuchte who convened the program, to  Mrs. Clear, Mts. Williams and Mrs.*  Leuchte who carried out the very attractive decorations and to the ladies who  did such a fine job of catering.  Special guests at the party weie the  Duff's house guests, Mr. and Mrs.  Conley who are gradually working  way back to their home in Penticton  three months tour of Mexico, in  Campmobile.

Hazelton, is attracting large numbers  of tourists with its 'Kasan Village, a  museum complex comprising five native-  style long houses one of which is a treasure house museum and one��� a carving  shed. Indian crafts are always in great  demand by the tourists and the Indians  are very quick to learn new crafts.

The tentative constitution of the coordinating council was read and discussed and was accepted after one deletion was made.  Members brought ficwer, containers to  be used in the hospital Wards. A letter  from Mi\ .'Wage-makers thanking the  auxiliary for table and chairs in the children's ward was read.  A donation of $50 has been received  from the Legion.  Mrs. J.

COPY of a letter signed by thirty-seven  teenagers, including high school students, and one high school teacher had  not been received by the Peninsula Times  Office up to deadline but the* letter addressed to the Peninsula Times was read  at last Thursday's Board meeting. It gave  the young people's view-point of the now  almost legendary dance which was held  ���at the school on January 24th.  Attending the meeting were eight of  the young people who signed the letter:  Dianne Fisher; Ona Burnett; Nona Veale;  ���Shirley Hoehne; Paul Beeman; Jim  Nay lor; Lyle Davcy and Gary Flumer  felt. Also attending were Mrs. Celia Fisher; Mr. Sutherland;' Mr. Hay -=tnd members of the school District staff.  Following discussion on* rental of  school board property which is reported  elsewhere   in  the   Times,  trustee   Dave  .Ganshorn placed a recommendation on  the agenda for the policy committee,  which is the entire board, that the Board  : develop    full   use  ot school���faeHHiesr  Building supervisor Bob Rutter stated  that the gymnasium would be cleaned on  the midnight shift."  GRANT REJECTED .  Three families' living about 2.5 miles  from the Elementary School along Porpoise Bay Road. Sechelt requested trans,  portation assistance for their children.  Transportation assistance had been paid  for two. years prior to the double shift"  ��� system, when a school bus running at a  reasonable time had been put on the  route. Now that Elphinstone has reverted  back to the single shift, only one bus  serves the route and primary children  have to leave home to catch the 7:45  a.m. bus, then walk from the Forestry  Station to the school arriving about 8  jrt.m. In the afternoon they have another  long  wait  before  cc.ching the   4   p.m.  - bus at the Forestry Station.  One of the mothers Mrs. Sutherland  told 'the Times that she refuses to have  ' her children waiting all that time and  is presently paying $7.50 per week taxi  fare. She feels it is unsafe for children  to walk the distance due to gravel trucks  on the road and a cougar has been reported in the area which is isolated. Also  she cares enough for her'children to  want to know^-where they are and what  they are doing and refuses to have them  waiting around. She will have them study  at home by correspondence when the  family allowance is used up on taxi fares.  Transportation chairman Bill Malcolm  stated the children arc within walking  distance approved by Council of Public  Instruction and he ooesn't see how the  Board .could approve assistance when  other children in the district are similarly  placed.  Cost to the Board for five children  involved would be !j.602 per school year.  Mi*. Malcolm said it is not possible to  change the bus time although it had been  investigated. Seeing that a bus serves  the area, the grant was rejected. Trustee  Mulligan did not favour the decision but  did not wish a negative vote recorded.  The common view' that cautions against gaining more than 15 pounds" during  pregnancy is being questioned. Studies  indicate that the pregnant woman who  gains 24 "to 30 pounds, provided the  pounds result from a sound diet, may be  doing her unborn child a favor. Data  show lower infant mortality in such  weight gains, compared to the 10-to 15-  pound class.  Trustee Bernard Mulligan also presented  notice of motion concerning, four proposals on policy changes.  SKATING APPROVED  ', Skating for teenagers in Elphinstone  auditorium has been re-instated if the  Sunshine Coast Skate Club accept the  only evening of the week when the hall  i*. free, that is from 9:.15 to 11 p.m. on  Monday evenings. The club requested an  additional week-day evening. Club's request was rejected by the Board last  year when property ��� damage and dust  were two of the reasons given.  Trustee Barry Jenks said he thought  dust was the .problem but was told that  the hall had not been granted last semester due to the double shift system.

Mew flsuws BiaM d3@imi��@mE��  DURING recent weeks a number of  motor   vehicle drivers   have fallen  foul of hew laws under the Motor Vehicle .  Act.  Most notable of which has been  no insurance coverage and the breathalyzer test.  Both are proving ^extremely costly  and, from a law enforcement point of  view, very efficient. Far too many innocent people previously suffered as a  result of becoming involved in accidents  with impaired drivers or those who failed  to carry adequate insurance. Therefore,  drastic changes under the act were  bady needed.  Formerly, lack of insurance seemed  to pose no problem for offenders, a  situation no longer existant in B.C. for  adequate coverage is now mandatory  and penalty for failure to comply can  prove very expensive indeed. The same  applies to those who are caught driving  and fail the breathalyzer test.  There was a time when the charge  was driving while impaired and in the  event of a driver contesting the charge  a lengthy legal battle often ensued. The  excuses and stories put forward by, or  for, the defence often approached the  ludicrous and in many cases, when an  element of doubt was created, the case  would be dismissed.  Under the new act which calls for  taking the breathalyzer test, by request  of RCMP officers, the matter is greatly  simplified and providing the test reveals  a reading of more than 80 milligrams  ; of alcohol in the blood, the case is generally considered to be conclusive.  f Should the accused go to the trouble  of entering a plea .of not guilty and obtaining legal representation, then the outcome could really prove costly: To prove  innocence after the test states otherwise  is a hard nut to crack and, indeed, very  .9.  WHILE some people are just getting  around to rcali7.c what the federal  government's White Paper on tax "reform" will mean to them (if they own  a home, a summer shack, some savings  and earn or will soon earn over $9,000  a year total income) others see something  more sinister lurking behind it ��� a  shift in Canada's government from elected  representatives to hired intellectuals.  Howard Green, a former minister of  external affairs at Ottawa and a respected parliamentarian of 28 years' standing  ���no.w retired���pointed out some of the  danger signals.  Liberal House leader Donald McDonald recently announced that the  Tiudeau government intended to push  through 74 pieces of legislation in 73  days during the current session at Ottawa.  Perhaps the top-heavy Liberal majority  gave him the courage to make this totalitarian demand, for it indicates he  expects to be able to quell debates to  suit his���and Mr. Trudcau's���timetable.  Mr. Green protested weeks earlier,  and in a different manner, against this  policy, just as clearly as if he had been  told it was coming. "Trudcau and his  key staff���which has grown from 8 to  5? in a few years���are trying to stamp  out debates in Parliament. The prime  minister and his key staff are not parliamentarians . .. they regard the Commons as a talkshop and the sooner they  shut it down the better," the experienced  former Member warned.  He had more to say, and unfortunately for Canada what he had to say  was true. "Parliament is the whole heart  of our democratic system. But the prime  The PENiNSULA^^ed-  Published Wednesdays nt Sechelt  on B.C.'*. Sunshino Const  by  Sechelt Pcnin-iuln Times Ltd.  aox3H)-Scch��?lt, B.C.  Douglas G. Wheeler, Editor  S. P.

Subsequently, a  guilty verdict means an average of a  $300 fine, at least thirty days driving  suspension plus legal fees. Tack onto  this loss of work and "possible increase  in insurance rates and it would seem a  long hard look should be given to the  likelihood of driving after drinking.  Refusal to take the test can result :n  a fine of up to 51,000 or up to six  months jail or both.   ,  It would appear loopholes in the  Act have been well plugged. There are,  however, many more to be taken care  of before carnage on our highways is  substantially reduce.1. Hit and run is one  example for it happens far too often  and is one of the most despicable of driving misdemeanors. Penalty for this offence in some countries is severe but on'  the home front, only too often, after  police go to great trouble to locate a culprit, he escapes with a trivial fine.  What is not taken into account is  the fact that as far as many hit and run  drivers arc concerned they leave the  scene with complete disregard for the  fact they might have left a seriously  injured person behind. By their actions  a person could feasibly die through lack  of prompt treatment. There have, of  course, been cases whereby others have  been left dead on the roadside.  , This is an area calling for far heavier penalties than are presently meted  out and there arc many others also  worthy of general tightening up. In the  meantime we might take consolation  from the fact that a step in the right  direction has been taken and there remains little doubt the breathalyser test  has already resulted in drastic reductions  in highway accidents resulting from  drinking drivers.  minister  is  not  a parliamentarian ..."  "Trudeau has set up a ring of men  in his own office who have more power  than the cabinet ministers," Green  declared.  Mr. Green might also have pointed  out that Mr. Trudeau is dangerous because: he does not care if he is re-elected,  and that in fact he might not wish to be  re-elected, since the burdens of office  have already made some inroads on his  jet-set life..  There is a lot to be said against the  political party system. There is also a  great deal to be said for it, since upon  it rests the parliamentary system. "Parliament", incidentally, is a French-derived word meaning "to talk."  Mr. Trudcau seemingly intends to  have little or no "talk,"  Hon. Isabel Dawson  lauds anti-odour bid  HONOURABLE Isabel P. Dawson, Minister without Portfolio and MLA for  the Mackenzie riding, praised the announcement by the Honourable Ray Wil-  li.ston, Minister of Lands, Forests and Water Resources, that the Provincial Government will award a quarter of a million  dollars for an effective device to eliminate the odour of Kraft pulp mills.  In making tho announcement, Mr. Wil-  liston pointed out that, at the present time  no totally effective method of eliminating  Kraft pulp mill odour |.s know, short of  .shutting down the.  plant,  Mrs. Dawson said that since the utilization of waste wood by conversion to  pulp has become a major factor In the economic life of many British Columbia  communities, it is essential that an answer to odour emissions from these mills  be found. '  The device in* method receiving the  award must be proven capable of practical and economical application Under actual  working  conditions.  "In our efforts to ensure quality environment," Mrs, Dawson said, "il  Is of major importance that we do not.  stifle our economy which is often the  means of providing the necessary dollars  to carry out our environmental programs,  This type of nil* pollution contro device  is an essential part of our drive for quality environment,"  -     ...  Readers'-Right 'y  What orgy?  Editor, The Times,  Sir: With reference to your article concerning 'the orgy" held on January 24,.  in the Elphinstone School gym, we would  like to set the facts straight. We attended  the dance, and feel that your article was  overwritten, exaggerated, and dangerous  to the reputations of the kids who attended.  It is true that about seventy-five per  cent of the people at the dance were "hippie types", but that had nothing to dp  with it. Just because they are "hippit.  types" does not make them worse Tthm  anyone else. There was not a lot of drinkr-'-  ing going on, and as pop was being sold,  pop bottles may have easily been mistaken for beer bottles. As far as the mar-  juana, you don't have to go to a dance to  find kids taking it, and we did; not actually see anyone smoking marijuana. Why,  if there was so much drinking and smoking of marijuana, weren't any arrests  made? It hardly sounds logical.  As far as we could see, the "Various  stages of undress' was completely false.  As for the "couples lying around on the  floor", that happened to be during the  intermissions, and as there were no chairs  the kids were"'sitting, not lying, on the  floor.  We feel that the article was made to  sound like-everyone was lying around on  the floor in stagts of undress, drink, and  smoking marijuana, which certainly  wasn't true. Believe it or not, most of the  people at the dance were there for the enjoyment of the music and dancing . It  could hardly be called an "orgy", and we  cap hardly be called "influenced by the  hippies".  Diane Fisher. ,Oi.o Burnett. Shirley Hoeh-  ne. John Hopkins. Pam Gross. Lyn  Ward. Paul Beeman.

Both of these statements  are a great strain on the 'Credibility Gap'  and quite unbelieveable. But they are not  unconnected.  In the case of inflation it is mainly a  sorry burden on the working class, and a  threat to the savings, security and living  standards of old people and those living  on fixed incomes.  During inflation the business moguls  ���do very well thank you! Price and rents  are increased whenever this seems necessary; and then of course the blame"is  placed.on the workers, who must demand  higher wages. Government financing too  is planned and conditioned on the creeping paralysis calld inflation. So, the present conference of big business about inflation is predictably a failure. None of  these gentry are likely to reduce prices  without coercion, as this would destroy  the private enterprise system. That HOLY  COW!  The  real  cause  of  inflation  is  WAR  V ,/ ' _    ���      (hot or cold)"and extravagent ^necessary expenditures, because of 'cold war'  hysteria. As long as the country accepts  this excuse or attitude, the politicians wMl  not change the pattern. Inflation is further proof of the decadence of Capitalism  the B.C.G.E.U. wants the right for some  of the members to strike, the last thing  the Union wants is for the members to  actually strike. Also, the Union is aware  that there are some groups, such as  nurses or aids in mental hospitals and  Unfortunately, until  the people wake " Jail guards to mention only two, where  a strike is out of the question. These  groups will have to be provided with  access to impartial and binding arbitration  up, prices will continue to rise; the workers and those retired will lose their savings  and - face more insecurity/ More strikes  will naturally take place and these are  very necessary.  All  workers  should deny  and scorn  the false claim that wages cause inflation.  ' D. L.

Present facts  The Editor,  Dear Sir: It would be deeply appreciated if you would print the following  item in your valuable publication at a  convenient date in the near future.  By and large, the general public is  not aware of how unsatisfactory . the  working conditions are to most B.C.  Government Employees and how completely unsatisfactory the bargaining  procedures are which exist between the  B.C. Government Employees' Union and  the Government of the Province of British  Columbia. Therefore,, jwe would like to  present the public with some of the*fac��s  relating to our problem and with our main  objectives.  With to exception of British Columbia,  every other Provincial Government in  Canada and the Federal Government  provide collective bargaining rights for  their respective employees. Municipal  Government employees and those working for such Crown Corporations as B.C.  Hydro and Pacific Great Eastern Railway have the right lo strike, as well as  complete bargaining rights.  That is all the B.C.G.E.U. is asking for:  The right to meet face to face with our  employer in order to negotiate rates of  pay, hours of work and other conditions  of emplbyement. The right to be able to  go to a conciliation board or an arbitration board, if there is a dispute on these  issues. The right to strike, if the findings  of a conciliation board are not satisfactory to the Union, (the findings of an  arbitration board would be binding on  both sides). And finally, the right to a  written contract, binding upon both  sides, spelling out these conditions.  It  should be pointed out that  while  or even a LABOURER working for the  B.C. Highway Dept. receives 10 per cent  less than if he was working for most of  the Municipal Governments in B.C. A  DRAUGHTSMAN, married with twb children of school age, has an annual income  of $257.10 less than a SOCIAL WELFARE  RECIPIENT who* also has two school age  children to suppoct.  Overall,, the salary scale for Employees  of the B.C. Government is 15 per cent  below the pay for comparable jobs in the*  Federal  Government  service,  Municipal  Government services and in such public *  utilities as B.C. Hydro. ^  Mr. John Kenneth Galbraith, who was  an economic adviser to President John.  Kennedy, said recently in" a speech in  Ottawa that "few things are so" socially  necessary, as strong union organizations  for employees of Government at all  levels". He also stated that, "if the public  services cannot act on their own behalf,  their compensation will fall further and  further behind.  The Premier of this Province has  often said that the B.C. Government Civil  Service is second to none in Canada, that  is one thing the B.C.G.E.U. ��can agree  with. The B.C.G.E/U. is also aware of  the fact that it is the loyalty and dedication of the employees to the Government  Service that makes it second to none.  So we hope you good people will agree  that the request of the B.C.G.E.U. for  bargaining rights is eminently reasonable  and that there is no justification for the  Government's decision to withhold, these  rights.

Looking after children is nothing new  to Mr. and Mrs. Hemstreet for besides  bringing up their own family they have  cared for tweny-five or perhaps twenty-  seven other children, "We alvyays meant  to keep check," said the happy couple  who have helped so many youngsters during times of family stress.  Not too many months ago the Hem-  streets moved from their home in Sechelt,  which had been the headquarters for junior and senior square dancing for many  -years, and settled into their spacious residence on thirty-six acres of park and  woodland at Roberts Creek. Since then  helped by their children, Peter, A|an and  Sandra, they have been busy fixing up  the house and clearing the overgrown  gardens and at the same time anxiously  awaiting authority to open the first group  home in the district.  Now nil the red-tape hns been cut and  already the Hcrnstreota have welcomed  four teenagers Into their family and on  Sunday they wore busy helping with ser  ving refresrments and showing visitors  around the grounds, accompanied by two  large friendly dogs who obviously receive lots of attention too.  Mr. Hemstreet who plans later to operate a camping ground on the very beautiful property, said that any problems  which arise amongst the youngsters is  settled at round table conferences. If anyone wants something special, it is discussed and if approved, a little extra held a-  round the house or grounds is expected.  Contentment appeared evident throughout tho large house which has eight bedrooms and four bathrooms and many  large windows which let in the fresh  breeze which sweeps down from Mount  Elphinstone.  The, day chosen for the opening was  more appropriate for on tho television another children's help project, the Variety  piub's telethon was being watched with  Interest and it was also the birthday of  the newest member of the Hemstreet family, two year old Margy.  Maurice and Peggy Hemstreet have always been active In projects which bring  happiness and interest to young people.  Besides their popular square dances,  Maurice often gives time to be master of  ceremonies at chlldrcns pnrtitfst and concerts. In the basement, their hobby or  rock collecting is put to use making Jew-  Happy Celebration  One hundred guests attended open-  house at the home of Mr. and Mrs.  M.

For I sincerely bebeve���and I have  stated triis publicly many times���that we,  the government, must help you in your  fight for economic survival; we must  speak out on your behalf and we must act  on your behalf. Other groups in society  have the organizational ability and the  economic leverage necessary to fight  their own battles successfully; senior citizens on limited fixed incomes are among  the groups that cannot do this alone.  A few weeks ago, referring to inflation, I told a conference "of business and  labour leaders that "the true measure  and the true cost of what has been hap-"  pening can be found only among those"  unprotected Canadians whose incomes are  fixed and who each year have, watched  "their purchasing^ power and standard of  living drop by 4lor 5 per cent". I pledged?  then, and I pledge again to you now, that  the government will do everything in its  power to ensure that your $100 will not  dwindle in worth to $75 five years from  now, or $50 ten years from now.  Fighting inflation, fighting the spiral  of ever-rising costs and prices which so  affects you in your daily life, has been  and must remain our priority.  This does not mean, however, that we  not also moving in other ways to help  alleviate the very real difficulties which  so many of you face in trying to meet the  monthly rent, the weekly grocery bilL,the,  medical expenses, the small luxuries to  which everyone is entitledr -������i  In your letter you called for an Increase in personal exemptions from income tax. The White Paper on Tax Reform tabled on November 7 by the Minister of finance proposes that basic tax exemptions be increased from $1000 to $1400  for a single person, and from $2000 to  $2800 for married couples. In addition, it  is proposed to retain the special deduction of $500 for all persons 70 years of  age and over; the standard deduction of  $100 would also be retained. If adopted,  therefore, these proposals will ensure that  a single person who has reached the age  of 70 will be allowed an income tax exemption of $2000; married couples will be  allowed $3400. Again, if adopted, these  proposals will go a long way towards ad-  leviating the tax burden for senior citizens between the age of 65 and 70.  Your letter also calls for an increase  in the Old age Security to $150. As the  Minister of National Health and Welfare  pointed out in his reply to the Brief presented by the President bf the'National  Pensioners and Senior Citizens Federation, to replace the existing Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement with a pension of $150 would mean  an additional cost of $1 billion over and  above the present costs of the pension and  supplement. Furthermore, because the increased pension would be payed to all  pensioners regardless of their need, this  very .substantial expenditure would be  made without in fact achieving the objective of 'en<airing that it is those most  in need who would receive the greatest  assistance.  This is one of the many questions in  the field of social security legislation  which is now under intensive review.  We must give most ��to those whose need  is the greatest. To achieve this aim however, in so complex a field as social security has required many* months of study  and will continue to -receive our urgent  attention in order to arrive at an equit-  abe and practical formula.  At this stage, I cannot name a magic  figure and say "yes, this is what we promise". What I can do is to assure you that  your voice has been heard and listened to,  that your needs are not drily appreciated  but that they are prompting pur thought  and action in many, many areas: in our  determination to curb inflation; in our  new tax proposals; in our study of all  social security measures.
