Best Canadian Graphic Industries Ltd* ,  . 1606 Oest 5*tb~Ave."V." <  - Vancouver 9* B��C*  PRESENTLY under construction, a subdivision in the Gibsons area is held up  through "a series of circumstances calling  for unusual action on the part of council.  Appearing at the. last regular meeting,  Mr. Charles English, the developer, told  council an old house has to be pulled  down in order for a road to be pushed  through and water laid. The resident of  the house is waiting to move into a new  COURT EXPANSION  Canon Minto Swan reports funds are  starting to come in for expansion to double the size of the Secheit Senior Citizens'  Homes project. Many contributions have  been promised and there has been indication that a Church Group might offer a  dollar for dollar matching grant for funds  raised.  MARIONETTES  Sunshine Coast Arts Council has  scheduled another presentation of Dirk's  Marionettes for the Gibsons area. Their  presentation, "Puss In Boots," will be held  in the Gibsons Elementary School commencing 2:30 p.m. Saturday, December 6.  Everyone welcome to this family entertainment Children and students 50c.  adults $1.00.  SHARP SHOOTERS  Bold gunmen have pitted their wits  against mail boxes and signs in the Gibsons area .and peppered both with buckshot. Aid. Ken Crosby told council last  week the mail boxes on Reid Road had  been fired at and so had recently erected  village signs.  GROWING UP  Growing Up ceremony for Cubs going  into Scouts will be held on Thursday, December 11 in the United Church Christian  Youth Centre in Gibsons from 7:30 to 8:30  p.m.  Parents of all boys growing up are  most welcome and refreshments will be  served.  home on the subdivision as soon _as power  is hooked up. B.C. Hydro will not hook  up until the subdivision is officially registered as such. This normally, is not done  until roads and water lines are in and  Mr. English told council he would be pre-.  pared to put up a $1,000 as a bond of good  faith.should he be given subdivision approval first.  Mayor Wally Peterson questioned the  fact that the amount was not sufficient to  cover costs of road and water. Mr. English, however, argued that a larger sum  would be- an unfair imposition due to  present day high interest rates. He is  putting in the subdivision in good faith  ��� and would certainly not take a chance of  forfeiting the $1,000.  It was finally agreed that Administrator Dave Johnston and Works Superintendent Fred Holland work out an estimate regarding- cost of road and water  installation. An agreement could then be  arrived at. .  TOURISM  Mayor Peterson suggested further in-  .yolvement with the.Sunshine Coast, be  dropped in favor of the Vancouver based  Mainland* Southwest Association which,  it seems, offers substantial "area' coverage  in a proposed newsprint -brochure.-. He  said it* seems to him the Sunshine": Coast  Tourist Association is a dead issue and  that the Mainland Southwest seems to be  a better deal in "regard to brochures.  -  It was moved and passed .that membership in the Tourist Association be idrop-  dep. Aid. Ken Goddard. however, refrained from voting and commented that  he would like to know a "little mqre about  the situation first. '    -  WHARFINGER  Final plans are being formulated in order that appointment of a- wharfinger  might get operation of a wharfage charging system under way as.of January 1.  Plans are to install water and power outlets for vessels, cost of which will have  to be borne by users.  LIQUOR STORE _  Alderman Ken Crosby reported that  he inspected the road to the new liquor  store and recommends it be widened,  gravelled and ditched. He had been accompanied by Superintendent Fred Holland. Work is to be carried out shortly.

He commented that  much has been said and written of innovation in- our school system, however,  good solid day-to-day effort in a. good  teaching situation is necessary to get good  results. Consistent effort is also required  on the part of the learner.  Parents too haye assisted on special  occasions, taking an active part to make  events happy and successful, adding  greatly to the rapport between home and  school.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1969 1��C  Volume 7, No. 1  UPages  $300 and suspension  for hit and run error  PHILLIP Lester Joe of Secheit appeared  before Judge Charles Mittelsteadt last  Wednesday, November 26, and entered a  guilty plea to a charge of hit and run  following an incident on November 22 in  which an auto he was driving struck a  parked vehicle.  Police told the court an officer off duty  was driving his private car behind Joe  and observed him turn off Cowrie Street  into Inlet and strike the side of a light  truck parked off the road. The accused  then backed off and caused the constable  to stop in order to avoid being struck.  Joe then drove off from the scene. The  detachment was notified and Joe was apprehended near Hackett Park where he  had stopped. He told police he had been  drinking with friends and was on his way  to the liquor store in his father's car.  Joe told the court he realized afterwards it was a mistake to have left the  scene and ,had stopped at Hackett Park  with intentions of finding out who the  truck belonged to and paying for the  damage.  Police stated Joe has faced a number  of charges since 1966 involving offences  under the Motor Vehicle Act and was  driving without a licence when picked up.  Told by the Judge of the severity of  the" offence, Joe was fined $300 to be paid  forthwith and suspended from driving for  six months.  For ��� carrying a loaded firearm in his  car, Pierre Benedict was fined $50 or  ten days.  $100,000 cut-back . . .

Reporting' to the - Regional Hospital  Board last week, Director Frank West  . said: "This .will mean another study resulting in cutting of certain facilities such  as planned larger laboratory. It might be  possible to take out some part of the project which can be completed at a later  date. Somehow we have to cut back  $100,000."  -Director' Archie .RuC&j*iSord conugoent-  committee to come up with a new plan.  Director West agreed and added that  it will certainly take a great deal of kicking around, "even then they will probably  reject it," he added.  Director Cliff Gilker expressed the  view that the Government has let down  the Hospital Board and is simply creating  delays. He moved the Provincial Government be advised of the Board's dissatisfaction with the way it is holding up  vital projects.  Director West added: "They seem to  expect us to keep to 1967 prices and completely ignore galloping inflation and this  is by no means the only hospital so af-  ieQted."'  ed that iriW-is'littlfe.point in discussing' v ^yTt'was 'agreed^u. accept the" motionTjy  after nine 'months-of consideration by the  Board.-Latest"notification to Council from  a senior clerk states;' Legislation of the  Pollution Conl-^ol Act, 1967, does not allow the Director to consider an amendment to an application after it had been  refused.  Accordingly, we are enclosing blank  firms to enable a new application to be  made. In appreciation of your position in  this matter we would advise that a visit  to our offices by your consulting engineer  may be of benefit.  Administrator Dave Jo"hnston stated he  has already arranged a meeting with the  pollution Control Board which will be attended both by Council and Engineer  Martin Dayton  Letter from Mr. Dayton indicated that  plans for the sewer system are completed  and plans for an interceptor are almost  completed.  Visit to Victoria by council is to ascertain precisely the type of treatment plant  acceptable to the P.C.B. To date, lettcrs  from the department have proved both  vague and non-committal.  As a consequence, council is now faced  with the expense of the trip to Victoria  together with the engineer, plus the fact  that further cnRinecrinR costs an* to be  anticipated while construction and material costs continue to soar.  Hon. Isabel Dawson M.L.A. informed  council she is Inking thi* mntter up with  thc P.C.B, and would be in touch with  council Inter.  Mayor W-illy Petor..on said Mrs. Dawson will he in thf ��rc;i on the 3rd Deccm-  pending final approval-for lease of a gravel pit. Mr. Johnston advised he has now  received final approval.  It was agreed that roads chairman Ken  Crosby look into the situation. It was also  agreed to provide for a street light nearby on recommendation of Aid. Gerry Dixon who agreed the area needs additional  lighting.  PERMITS  Two applications were approved, each  valued at $16,000. One for a drug store  adjacent to the medical clinic, the other  for a new home.  in-fact the school had lost one dajr, of  counselling.  Increased enrollment is due to change  in school boundaries and of the 26 pupils  transferred to Langdale, 15 had .been receiving special remedial- insitruction.  There are now a total of 18 students needing remedial instruction and a' number of  others with varying degrees of learning  problems.  The school anticipates an enrollment  of 170 students next year which will necessitate another classroom.   *  CO-OPERATION    ,  Mr. Passmore iri his report commend-  ���see page A-5  the" situation further for it will now be  up to'the architects and the construction  For recreation  .egiona  [esignatioii o  LETTER from the Regional Board to the  Lands Branch seeking information regarding status of local beaches for recreational use, brought bjick a reply from the  Director of Lands stating all beaches and  foreshore are invested by thc Crown for  public use.

He was {old the  correct term would he "foreshore." Director Gilker added that this would be  12 feet above high wuter mark.  tention to the fact that the applicant is  prepared to pay the costs. "All we have  to do is permit a connection from the six-  inch main," he added.  It was agreed to go along with a suggestion by Director Gilker that the matter be turned over to thc water committee to discuss feasibility with the Super-  ���see page A-5  Charge of theft laid  following TV walk-out  BILL SWAIN  of  C&S Sales  is  by  no  means  the first merchant   to have  n  "help yourhclf" store but things did gel  a little out of hand last week when he  spotted a man walking out with a TV set.  Leaving   the   woman   who  had   been  taking up his attention at the paint de-  , partment,   rear   end   of   the   store,   Mr.  Swain   chased   out   in   time   to   get   the  licence   plates  and   a   description   of   the  culprit's car.  Picked up later and charged with theft  over $50, John Mayers of Seehelt is held  in custody pending trial this month. No  plea Has yet been entered und the disappearing TV set has still not been recovered.  Director Gilker and register dissatisfaction with the Government >  Tenders submitted ranged from $656,-  900 to $791,963. The lowest bidder was  ruled out on grounds of certain discrepancies, and next lowest, that of Janin  Western Contractors Ltd., finally accepted  on recommendation of the architects.  Need for the expansion was becoming  imperative and for some years St. Mary's  has been operating at near one hundred  percent occupancy.  There have been reports of a freeze  on hospital construction but this has been  denied by Premier W. A. C. Bennett who   .  has indicated costs have to be kept to a  realistic figure.

They arc: Mrs.  Grace Wiren (District employed); Mrs.  Muriel Neilson, Gibsons Elementary; Mrs.  Ida May Anderson, Gibsons Elementary;  Miss Irene M. MacAulay, Bowen Island  Elementary.  In a letter to the retiring teachers,  BCTF president Jim Killccn said: "Your  service to education and to thc young  people of our country leaves us in your  debt, Education must be a social investment in human potential, It is your personal involvement and contact with thousands of students that has made society':,  investment meaningful.  "Your colleagues are aware of the  quiet, day to day dedication lequiicd to  promote the .social and intellectual development of young people and on their behalf, all 21,000 of them, I thank you."

W. ML Klocble  Manager,  Actmlxrivtrative  ^rvir*?*  3073-pub. Dec. 3, 19(.9  Read small print . . .  ier Servico Brcmc  warns on unsolicited mail  MO��>\T of us receive mail we do not want  ���such as advertising leaflets, magazine  subscription forms and record or book  club offers. Sending this kind of mail is  a perfectly legitimate way of doing business, and it is strictly up to us whether  we want to read it or not. But what do  you do if you- receive a credit card you  never asked for. a C.O.D. parcel you never  ordered, or a package of Christmas cards  you did not request? Unsolicited mail is  annoying and, in some cases, it is illegal-  Here are some business ^mailing practices  which you should know about:  RECORD AND BOOK CLUBS  The common complaint here is getting  records or books that were not wanted.  In the case of those advertising a free trial  or free offer, the first shipment contains a  message saying, in effect, ''If you don't  want more, send a-card saying so ... if  you would like more, do nothing." Often  the recipient does-not t-ead or understand  -these- conditions and fails to return the  card. In some cases, when the consumer  has cancelled his membership, the record  or book club fails to stop sending merchandise usually due to clerical errors. In  other cases, pranksters* have sent in coupons and orders in another person's-name,  DECEASED PERSONS.  - A particularly- objectionable practice is  that of sending merchandise by C.O.D. to  persons who have recently died. A survivor in the household often accepts the  goods believing they- were -actually- ordered  by the deceased before death. It is against  the law to send any article by- C:O.D.  which has not been ordered or requested.  CHARITY FAILINGS.  Items such as Christmas- and- Easter  seals, key tag services, etc., are sent to  households unsolicited, with a request for  a donation in some cases, or a definite  sum in others. This is a generally accepted  method of raising funds for charitable  purposes, and therefore results in few  complaints.  CLIP AND PASTE  This scheme involves sending a business firm a document which looks like a  bill or an invoice but which is actually a  solicitation or an advertisement for the  operator's service. These documents can  be mistaken for legitimate bills and paid  in error. The Post Office now requires  that any invoice-type document must,  clearly indicate it is a solicitation, that it  is nof a bill, and that payment is not required unless the offer is accepted.  CREDIT CARDS  There is nothing illegal about sending  unsolicited credit cards through the mail.  But you should note an important condition that almost invariably accompanies  each card in words such as these:  ".The card holder named hereon agrees  to pay for all purchases.made by any. person using this card until the company has  received written notice of its loss or theft."  It is entirely up to you to decide if you  should keep the card. If you do not want  it, then destroy it so that no one else can  use it. Keep in mind your ability to meet  monthly payments if you'use the card. In  some cases a credit card may be stolen  before it reaches you.  You will be billed  if someone else uses it.  If so, notify the  company immediately.  GREETING CARDS  Packages of cards are marled to the  home and the home and tbe recipient is  requested to mail his payment to the firm.  Often the request for payment subtly hints  that it will benefit handicapped persons.  In this case, however, the Post Office nojv  . requires that a notice be included, with  the shipment stating that you do not have  to pay the return postage and in tact, you  are under-no legal obligation either to  purchase the cards or to. return them.  Other unsolicited goods reported range  from religious music sent to churches, to  miniature cameras sent to names chosen  from local telephone directories.  The Canada Post Office Department  does not have legal authority to interfere  with ordinary business carried out by  mail. Certain mailings, however, are considered offences under ithe Criminal Code.  These include, for example, mailing anything that is obscene, indecent or immoral;  information regarding book-making, betting or wagering; false or fraudulent advertising; any article concerning schemes  to, deceive, or defraud the. public, or to obtain money under false pretences. The  Post Office investigates all complaints  dealing with illegal or objectionable use x>f  the mails, and has the authority to discontinue mailing privileges where there is  evidence of illegal use.  - ��� From* the* individual consumer's point  of view, the Post Office Act states that  once an article is posted it becomes the  property of the addressee. However, any  individual- has the privilege of refusing  mail. Just mark it "refused," sign it and  return it to the Post Office where it will  be disposed of in accordance with postal  regulations. It is entirely up to the consumer to decide whether he should keep  or return unsolicited material. In your  own pest interest, however, it would be  wisest in most cases to return the material  to-the Post Office.  The following important points should  be kept in mind:  ��� Read all offers carefully.  ��� Understand the conditions of acceptance of any unsolicited proposition.  v    ������ You are not required to pay for unordered merchandise.  ��� It is against the law to send unordered merchandise by C.O.D.  ��� Check all invoices carefully.  ��� If* you do not wish to retain unsolicited material mark it "Refused" and return it to the Post Office. *  ��� Report any. suspected misuse of the  mails to the Post Office Department, Ottawa.

Wheeler, Editor ��� Stewart B. Alsgard, Publisher  t\^r  *\,  \  ��    @  THIS week The Times celebrates its sixth  anniversary, as it commences its  seventh year of service to this part of the  Sunshine Coast area. In December, 1963,  a brave little newspaper of eight small-  size pages made its bow to these communities; this month our average number  of pages goes past 12, of the standard  newspaper size. This is a growth of 300%  in those pleasant six wars, a growth  which is also reflected in/the number bf  families taking the papery Starting with  a press run of 1,700 papers the first year,  we:now run 2750 "papers,\a growth in  readership of well over 60%, and representing a solid coverage of the area  from Port Mellon to Egmont. This coverage is estimated at over 80% saturation,  based on postal department figures of  population, and is by far the best coverage, by any newspaper serving the area.  Every business likes to grow,\ and a  newspaper is no exception. Our growth  has been made possible by the dedicated  efforts of the Wheelers, iSlarcia and  Doug, and ".heir helpers. Good newspaper people are more than just employees; they are indeed community servants, and Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler are  exactly that.  Newspaper editors, if their paper is  to have strength and value, must stand  up and be counted; they must understand  that no one can please everyone all of the  time; they find their satisfaction in doing  what is right, even if it may not be popular with everyone at the time.  The end result is a growing community, and a better community, although  the job never finishes . . . there is always  next month and next year to lookW*-  ward to after each small step of progress.  As with nearly all local businesses,  The Times buys its basic stock-in-trade  '(white space, for news and advertising)  ���from out-of-town. To this it adds a local  staff and payroll, owns and maintains  local premises, pays local taxes, supports  local industries and businesses and contributes substantially to local progress.  , The time may come when a local production plant might be justified, but at  present it would be economically impractical if we are to maintain our standard  and the quality of service we have been  giving.  - As we said, a newspaper likes to  grow, and to contribute W important  part to the growth of its community. The  Times has enjoyed a steady growth, and  as we celebrate our sixth anniversary  and look forward to another year of service to you, we promise that we shall  continue working in and for the communities we serve.  The fiiture of this area of the Sunshine Coast is indeed bright, made possible by the work of interested and dedicated citizens in all segments of our population. We are happy to be able to  support their effort.  ���Stewart B.

J. Black  SUNSET FROM SELMA  V-  !i#e��tl {i-uppuFt alfoamaldDimceal  RECENTLY we drew attention to the  fact that a year or so ago at a meeting of Chambers of Commerce it was  indicated that in order to obtain certain  provincial grants toward the cause of  tourism it would be necessary to take out  membership in the Sunshine Coast Tourist Association.  From a personal point of view The  letter to The Times subsequently set a  figure of $20,500 for the coordinator  and a staff of two which includes salaries, transportation, office equipment,  supplies, etc.  This is precisely one reason we opposed joining such organizations even  though, broken down, figures indicate  thisf cost works out to a mere 10c pet  Tiuaes did not support this premise and    capita. Chambers of Commerce operate  took the view that we have a Chamber  of Commerce which should be working  toward local promotions We did not feel  the Tourist Association had, \ in the past,  given the village sufficient coverage and  further, some. of ;the businesses which  should be supporting! it w^7ridt participating.  At that time, however, the Secheit  Chamber of Commerce, or at least some  members of the Chamber, did a good  v selling job on behalf of the Tourist As-  |.sociatiori and succeeded in raising sub-  * stantial funds.  Even more recently we commented  on the fact that a substantial amount of  capital raised through dues in the Tourist Association was sent to the Greater  Vancouver Tourist and Convention Bureau for which, we have no doubt, certain services on our behalf were rendered.  The story this year is that in order  voluntarily at minimum overhead costs.  So does the Sunshine Coast Tourist Association. Therefore why provide substantial sums of local money to establish  jobs on the lower mainland?  It *uheref<j^��auc^e:;as.a: surprise last  -week to learn that .(_tiwic_l of Gibsons  decided father than support its own Sunshine Coast Tourist Association it would,  instead, channel funds into the Mainland  Southwest organization.  "The Tourist Association appears to  be a dead issue," stated Mayor Wally  Peterson. And well it might be if we  are to abandon our own interests for  outside promotions.  This, of course, is what we stated in  an earlier editorial on this subject. The  very people who should be supporting  the local group are not. Should we get  near lOO^o participation in our own Association, then much could be accom-  1  As the late gull glides swiftly shoreward,  ���the last touch of sun on his wings;  As the skyline turns coral and red now,  ���in the stillness that evening brings;  As The Island turns blue in the twilight,  ���Mount Arrowsmith glowing like flint;  As the top-most peak of the far (far) West,  ���takes on this day's final gold tint  . -. ���  II  As the sound of the wind gently lessens,  ���and.the first shadows creep o'er the Bay;  As the waves on the Gulf become quieter,  ���their fury now spent for this day;  As the tugboats set out from Trail Island,  ���and their diesels throb out their  great  might;  As the West takes on colors so stunning,    \  ^���-from azure, to red - pink, then whitef  II.

GOODING  Returning Officer  vwmmimmmmmmmaapimmmmm!!,  ��(��91   ��1  ��SMUW^��  �����5��  \  CONSIDERING the number of seats up  for bid in the upcoming municipal  elections involving two councils, School  Board and Regional Board, it is gratifying to note thc number of new hats  thrown into the ring.  That there arc those among us sufficiently interested in their community lo  enter public service is quite commendable, in fact, if wc didn't have people of  this calibre then we would probably bq  still in the stone age. There are many  individuals who spend a great deal of  time,throughout the year attacking elected representatives or doing their best to  impress thc public wilh the idea they  could do the job so much better, yet are  Mrnngely unavailable when candidates  are required.  The onus now rests with the public.  We have candidates and the least we can  do is get out and vole. Two aldermen  take .scats on.Scchclt Council by acclamation, leaving two candidates to contest  Ihe one year term made available by  resignation of Alderman Morgan Thompson, seeking re-election as Mayor. He  will oppose incumbent Bill Swain.  In Gibsons, two contest (he Mayor-  ally, incumbent Walter Peterson and a  former commissioner, Jim Drumniond,  wilh four years experience on council  behind him. He is aho n former Chairman of Ihe Kiwanis Club.  Seeking the balance of ihe aldcnnan-  ie seat vacated by Waller Peterson is Mr.  William Nimmo, a Port Mellon employee. Conloiing him will be Charles  Mandelkau, well known Service Station  operator who has seen past active service  will) Ihe Kinsmen and is presently an active member of both Chamber of Commerce and Kiwanis. Also popular school  teacher Hugh Archer.  Incumbents seeking re-election, Gerry I>i*on and Ken Crosby, have a bailie on their hands with nomination of  IniMi-OMnan   Mike  Jilljiicy,   making   a  " c" ���  three-way contest.  Village representative on the school  board leaves voters with the task of reelecting Mrs. Agncss Labonte or abandoning her valuable experience as a trustee for Mrs. Lee Macey. Alto seeking  three seats as trustee arc: incumbent  Sheila Kitson and newcomers to the  scene T. D. Ganshom and P. L. Sluis,  both of Gower Point, and Mr. B. Mulligan.  Two scats only on the Regional  Board go to the polls and here, it would  seem, the choice is relatively simple. Mr.  Ian MacLean of Roberts Creek oppose^  Cliff Gilker. An original Regional Board  Director and previously actively working  on Ihe old ARDA committee in a bid to  obtain an adequate water system for thc  area, Mr. Gilker has consistently proved  himself one of the most well informed  anil industrious members of thc Board.  Should Mr. Gilker suffer defeat we do  not hesitate lo say, his loss would be  keenly felt by the area as a whole.  Only other area contested <**n the  Board is lhat of SclnVu Park where voters  have Ihe choice of returning incumbent  Harvey Hubbs or electing a strong voice-  in Al Lynn who is presently the active,  chairman of the Selma Park Community  Association.  We do not presume to tell the clcc-  lorale how to vote, that is a matter of  personal choice, but we can claim to  have greater knowledge of who does  what iluc lo thc fact we cover each and  every meeting. During thc course'of ,i  ycar we endeavor to give as comprehensive reports as possible and from this it  should be fairly obvious, to all who follow such reports, just who does justify  re-election.  Wc face a progressive future which  lo large extent depends upon Ihe people  we vote into office, if,there is weeding  to be done, Dcccmljcr 6 will offer the  opportunity.

This statement was made Wednesday  by J- A. Stokes,  provincial deputy  minister of forests,  to the 60th annual  Pacific Logging  Congress at the Hotel Vancouver.  "We foresee a  progressive "induction in slash-blmiv  ing as m&tUre-to-  decadent stands are  logged over, as close  utilization limits  ' waste and as alternative slash disposal methods are in- v * - - \  traduced," Stokes  said,  "���In 7 the   meantime, there must be j. A. Stokes  an     intensification  of public education about the need for the  present continuance of slash-burning.  1 "Among the good reasons which can  be advanced are the need for peforestation  and reduction of fire hazard, including  the familiar argument that it is better to  have a short period of * smoke haze in the  fall rather than a,. prolonged, period of  smoke oyer-the summer months from de- 7  structive wild, fires,?  Stokes; said government and industry  should paj-ticipate in. this education program "to the mutual benefit of: all."  He said' tho forest service;now orders  burning on the recommendation'of people,  knowledgeable about fire protection and  regeneration. ,  "However, the position in which ��� for-.,  est policy is placed at this tlm*e Is that public opinion, from an air pollution point of  view, ia demanding thq practice of slash-  burning cease immediately," hq said.  "I think it is fair, to say that no one  considers slas^-burning as the ultimate,  favorable answer to slash disposal.  "It is, however, tho best existing answer we haive.  It is a fact of life which'  cannot be swept under the carpoL'"  Stokes said, that v. hUc this policy is a  current requirement, it is also recognized  as a .problem-to which a solution must be  found. ���  " "Current public sentiment indicates a  willingness'to Wccpt the economic lost, of  restricted Industrial expansion if this' re-  strlctlon results in a groat preservation of  the natural environment," lie said.  "While I am not prepared at this tlm*  to discuss the wisdom of thb sentiment, it  must be accepted aa one of our major con-  fildomtions Hi planning for* the future."

He commented specifically on a statement within  the ad made by C. F. Gooding, Secretary-  Treasurer of the Regional Board, stating  the application in no way conflicts with  Bylaws of- th_. Regionc-1 District. "Are we  going out of our way in endorsing a thing  like this?" he asked.  Mr. Gooding explained it is just a  paragraph "we are expected to sign."  He said he has had to sign.a couple so  far. "The matter is one for the Pollution  Control Board and is actually out of our  jurisdiction," he said.  Director West commented: "I notice it  was not in the local paper."  Director Rutherford said he has looked at the subdivision involved and due to  the rocky nature of the land it seems the  effluent "will have to go into one large  tank and into the bay.  Mayor Swain, also a resident of Halfmoon Bay, stated such a system would  mean all isorts of detergents as well as  other deposits would flow into! the bay.

YOU KNOW, one of the best suggestions
I've heard in some time for preserving
some of the history of smaller centers in
this province was made at a recent meeting of the Vancouver Island Regional
Library held at- Parksville. The Comox
District Free Press reports that Fred
White, regional librarian, says that* the
Vancouver Island Regional Library will
soon extend its branch services to include
the care and preservation of the island's
historical documents. "There's local .history in every community in danger of being lost forever," White said, "and the regional library branches must become a
storehouse for this material and an authority on our collections." He went on to
say this means talking to pioneer residents, asking them to give old newspapers,
letters, books and legal documents to the
libraries where they will be preserved.
Valuable material would be found in
church and school records, club minutes
and souvenirs, even though the organizations may now be extinct. Library personnel will be encouraged to get tape recordings of older residents. He also urged
the branch libraries to give speciaj welcome to the Indian people who are starting to use the branch libraries.
Now, if other regional libraries throughout the province would develop similar
services to preserve local history, they
would be rendering a real service .to the
smaller centers and to the province as a
And here's a health note from Claude
Hoodspith in the Lions Gate Times: remember, seconds count, especially when
The Coast News says that one |Of the
last of the told steam tugs of the Pacific
Coast is now tied up at Gibsons where it
was towed by its new owner, Captain Martin Higgs. Prestige the Second is.99 "feet
long with a 22-foot beam and is equipped
with a triple expansion steam engine. It
was built in 1923 in New .-Westminsterand
has a long history of action on the coast
It was used for towing rail car. barges between Squamish and Vancouver before the
PGE line was completed, and it was the
tug that towed HMCS Ontario into Vancouver to be stripped before being sent to
the scrap heap. Plans .are to restore the
old tug to its original condition and. use it
for excursions up and down the Sunshine
With conferences on the problems of
drug abuse going on all over the province
it was to be expected that newspaper editors -would have opinions on the subject
* and here are some that I came across.
The first was in the White Eock Sun
and read:
"Every day we are convulsed by more
tragic news of our young people hurt by
the stronger drugs. Marijuana, we are
told, hurts no one though it can tempt the
smoker into trying something wprse.- But
everyone shrugs at reports of danger, from
-''tobacco.*'.   •■;■■ ■■■  '■■■. -.., .,~~..i'.:K~.~~!--'<<..r<:i.^'jA'££iv.ti.-'-\
" m': ,*Wl^;'a!_^^iibin%'^
standard, this idea that drugs are,wrong
ahd alcohol* right?   The only difference,
really, is the social rejection of the one
and the social acceptance of the other.
"The man who gets drunk on alcohol
points the finger of accusation at the youth
who tries LSD. The man puffing on a
foul-smelling cigar recoils from the marijuana smoker.
"The youth who tries drugs sees this
hypocrisy. But the youth cannot use the
hypocrisy of the adult world as an excuse
for using drugs, That makes him a'hypocrite too. ' .   , :   ...*!'.., .
"The choice to accept or reject is an
individual one. In this fast-moving world
of ours, children are exposed to dangers
earlier. They are called upon to make
decisions at a younger age. The parent is
no longer in a position to choose for thc
Then here's the opinion of the editor
of the Alaska Highway News:
"A new paragraph is being written into the criminal code not only in the Peace
Eivcr but' over the whole continent1 and
wc would like, to call it MURDER BY
CONVERSION. By this we mean that a
drug seller slinking under the umbrella of
a trusting but naive society is murdering
our students and other young people in
ever-increasing numbers. His work is
made easier by a permissive community
peopled by affluent parents who give their
offspring too much of the good things of
"This newspaper has said it before and
wc feel duty bound to .say it again—convicted drug pushers should be hanged by

f .* r    ' ■ t *■
ithe neck until- they are dead. The 'nice
Nellies' in Ottawa must enact legislation
now or call out the troops later."
And those opinions from the Alaska
Highway News were echoed in an editorial in the Campbell River Courier:
"The first step in our humble opinion
is to increase the sentences of those who
are convicted of trafficking. The second is
to deal with those who are caught either
using the stuff or in possession of it, in a
more severe maimer. A third step will be
necessary," that of an intelligent approach
from an educational standpoint
"Too many parents are inclined to link
all drugs under one heading without
knowing the problems linked to each. Too
many parents assume their children have
enough sense to stay away from drug use.
Saying it can't happen to us is dangerous
thinking, as many parents and children
have found out."
So there you have a number of opinions on the problem of drug abuse.
Fred White, in the Rossland Miner,
says: always be tolerant with those who
disagree with you. They have a right to
their ridiculous opinions.

In- the mail this week I received several
poems,arid somei other items as well, and.
I'll get around to using most of them later
on. One of -the poems was from Albert
Doig; of TWhrfe Rock and on the eve of
Remembrance Day it's particularly timely.
It was a reply to the famous poem of
John McCrea "In Flanders Fields" and
Mr. Doig called his poem simply "Reply."
Your challenge from the poppy bed
Shall not be failed, oh comrades dead;
We take your torch who live at dawn
Arid praising in our hearts your song,
Go living in your stead.
We man the guns still heard below,
We take your quarrel with the foe.
Your standards graven on our shields
We live and ever onward go.

Two ladies were in the news this week,
both of them being honored as good citizens. At Gastiegar, Mrs. Herb Johnson

''Arid the other--lady was Mrs. Mary
Winsome Pye of Clearwater who was honored by the Chamber of Commerce of that
district for7,her,wide interest in community activities. The North.Thompson-Clear-
water Times says she has been active on
centennial committees, is a school trustee,
active in the Girl Guide movement and
has been prominent, in helping the volunteer-fire department of the district. But
perhaps her, best known role has been that

Permit sought . . :>
APPLICATION under the Pollution Control Act for a permit to discharge effluent from an Imhoff tank into Halfmoon
Bay, recently advertised as a legal in the
Vancouver press by a Halfmoon Bay sub-
divider has given rise to concern in the
In his application, the developer L.}
Van Egmond, states the discharge would-*,
reach maximum of 10,800 Imp. gallons)
during twelve hours and an average of '-j
the same amount over a twenty-four \J
hour period. Operating season during'^
which effluent will be discharged will be 1
continuous. *  ^
Included  in  the advertisement  is  a*1
statement assumed to be on behalf of the i
Regional Board stating: "I, C. F. Gooding, "
hereby certify that this application does
not  conflict with the local By-laws  of
Corporation  of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District."
Any objections to the permit applica- I
tion must be made wittyn thirty days of
publication  of  the  application.    In   this
case the application was in November 20.
It is  understood a petition has  already  .
been submitted to the Pollution Control j
Branch from residents of the area pro-
testing the application. ,   !
Regional  Board .Secretary -> Treasurer .
Charles Gooding told The Times he was ^
aware of the proposals but explained the <
Board has no jurisdiction over an appli- .
cation for a system involving such a sub- ;
division.   The- developer will be obliged I
to  Obtain a permit from  the Pollution i
Control Branch in exactly the same way
as would a village installing a sewer system.
Application for a sewer system permit by Gibsons -council was submitted to
Victoria last year but was refused a few
weeks ago. It "is understood that due to
current demand for greater pollution control, requirements are not far more stringent.
In the case of Gibsons, council has
been instructed to submit a new application for a permit, but in order to do this
it is still necessary to find out precisely
the type of purifying plant acceptable to
the department and also within village
budget. Many estimates have been plucked from the air but an engineer has advised that an efficient plant might cost
anything up to. $100,000. Further to this
added expenditure is the fact t^iat while
council was all set to proceed earlier in
the year with installation, it will now be
sometime next .year, at which time costs
will have increased considerably.*
Another problem hitting many small
communities is the. fact that septic tank
regulations-have „ also "been tightened up
and in some cases construction *has been
curtailed until such time sewer - systems
are installed. * This situation1 is the more
complicated by the fact that the cost is
beyond the means of so many smaller

W. Black together with numeous copies to other departments and organisations stating:  POWELL River  Chamber  of  Commerce  has sent a clipping from November 24,  issue of the Town Crier to the Hon. W.  Black, minister of highways, which told i  the story of local recreation commission's'  efforts to get free ferry fares for juvenile  groups engaged in recreational activities.  In an accompanying letter the Chamber  told the minister they "fully endorse" the  commission's proposals.  "This7,Chamber fully endorses ttye proposal made by the Powell River Recreation Commission for reduced ferry fares  for league teams .". . members unanimously supported our intention to "write  to you and carry the proposition even  further. The resolution reads as foUows:  The minister of highways be petitioned to grant free passage tp all accredited  and organized juvenile groups engaged in  recreational activities. This would include  athletic teams, music anl school groups,  scouts, cubs and cadet groups and would  apply for every day of the week".  Powell River Chamber of Commerce  does not accept the reasoning of retrospect  of prer-ferry days. We reiterate our contention that the ferry, authority should be  an extension of the highways system and  substantial reductions should be made in  all fares,; passenger and vehicular.  "This committee presented a resolution  to the B.C. Chamber of Commerce in 1966  proposing the same reductions that We  propose here, only at that time we sug  gested that the vehicles (buses, trucks,  cars, etc.) be charged and the groups travel as non paying Boot passengers. Our  reasoning then was that the critical problem, for ferries was vehicle space, not passenger accommodation. Perhaps charging Jor vehicles could , still be considered  but at rates suitably reduced.  The Chamber urged Black "to reassess highways policy and not penalize  cornmunitities that for geographical reasons must rely upon ferry communica-  ���tions to exist In communities such as  ours we are particularly impressed by  the highways network all, over the province and people locally are entirely justified in believing that their tax dollars  too contribute to those modern highways."  "Ring Ot Bright Water"  wholesome family movie  TWO MOVIE stars who completely disagree are husband and wife Bill Trav-  ers and Virginia McKenna, starring in  Palomar Pictures International, "Ring-of  Bright Water.'" The famous husband and  wife team starred in "Born Free," with  the now famous lioness who played Elsa,  and are soon to appear in their second  animal film, based on Gavin Maxwell's  classic story about otters. Shot almost  entirely in the beautiful western highlands of Scotland, "Ring of Bright Water,'.'  released by' Cinerama Releasing Corporation, is directed by Jack 7 Couffer, and  produced by Joseph Stack;?  'For Travers and McKenna filming  with animals is not work at all, but an  ever learning experience.  As Bill has said, "Working with animals and making an effort to understand  them encourages tolerance and discourages selfishness, because animals never  ' lie and never cheat.",  Both Bill and Virginia have an incredible rapport with wild animals. Their  filming "Born Free" was, 7of course, a  dangerous and very new experience for  then. both. However, when it came to  film "Bright Water," they had to learn to  deal with an entirely different and somewhat dangerous animal���the otter. Although a naturally playful and affectionate animal; Otters can bite 'through a  man's hand and are easily upset because  they are short-sighted ' and. cannot see  danger approaching.  For ..their work with Oliver, the otter  who plays "Mijbil," both husband and  wife observed him for many weeks. Soon  they beganto establish: a curiosity for  each other and a rapport which was very  important to the success of the filming  of the story of a man, his pet otter and  the lady doctor who befriends them! both.  ��� v.  f       ,'r't  ./��  .V.  mi  /,  '.

Other stars  include Tommy Steele-4-a unique casting  selection since he is one of Britain's most  popular "rock'n'roll" singers���Ralph Richardson and Joan Plowright, Steele also  starred in the stage success "Half a Sixpence."  Executive producer of the spectacular  is Cecil Clarke, who introduced to television such personalities as Laurence Olivier,  John] "Gielgud, Ilex Harrison and Noel  Coward.  One Shakespearean authority recently  described "Twelfth Night" as "an ideal  show for these tormented times���it's jolly,  it's mischievous but it's not sick, it contains great speeches and a wealth of delightful human situations."

I look to the people  of Gibsons to honour rne with'their confidence  by voting me into office-as Mayor. Until two  years ago-1 served conscientiously for four years  on council as Commisisoner during which timo  I strived for.progress without any large mill rate  increases. Council at that time was successful  in assisting establishment of the. now Bank of  Montreal, Co-op and apartment block, all major additions to tho village. Wo also, qt that  time, instituted a number of road and sidewalk  projects.  Since.completing my two terms of office at  the end of 1967 I have actively participated in  the Kiwanis Club and have served a year as  President.  It is my feeling that with the great activity  taking place around us and a progressive future  ahead, council needs vital and aggressive leadership backed by  business acumen.

In theory, question period is an occasion for any member to question cabinet  ministers an matters of urgent public importance. It is one, of the very few occasions on which large .-numbers of newspaper-then attend the House of Commons  ahd, in this session as in the last, a time  when most MPs are-in their serits.  However, questions of urgent* national  importance, are scarcer, on a day to day  basis, than one might suppose. Most of  -the forty-mihute >period is taken up with  questions designed to embarrass the government, rather than to elicit information.  Opposition members dominate the period.  Government party members who wish to  embatrass ministers have got in their licks  in the privacy of caucus.  Sometimes question period becomes almost a form of bootleg debate.*. Some  members consistently ask questions,which  ���they know to be out of order. It elicits no  information. Mr. Speaker orders-the offender to resume his seat.

The members of the government are  least happy. They are sometimes nervous,  irritable, apprehensive,, alarmed and frustrated. Question Period offers them everything conducive to ulcers.  As witness to this, I produce Prime  Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, who was  brought to such a state of mind recently  that he slammed his fist on "his des"k. I do  not.know if Mackenzie King or St. Laurent ever hit (their desk with their fists,  but I doubt it.  This shortened passage of Hansard is  worth repeating.

Mix'n match year  for campus fashions  THE swingers on campus are doing their  '��\vn thing this fall with striking individuality. Whether they appear in niini-  ���iress or in maxi outfits, legs contribute  vividly" to the fashion panorama on campus.       '      ' -  "The campus look is the look of free-  ���Iom, a young fresh look done with great  Hair," says Madeleine Jardim, fashion coordinator for Burlington,. Hosiery Canada.  'It's a put-together look of mix and  *i.atfch. Strong fall colours are blended, or  offer clear contrast in an exciting new  trend that is pure, up-to-the minute  fashion," she said.  Miss Jardim continued. "The right  choice of pan.yhose pulls the fashion look  together with dramatic accent The  opaques are seen in deep purples, strong  wines and greens, blackened and reddened browns. th��> paler topes of camel  and cream and the all-important navy  and black."  The layered look is im exciting fashion  story on campus. Every item of clothing  has a partner ��� or two. The coat goes  ���with the pants, the dress with the jacket,  the vest with the shirt and skirt, the jumper with a blouse. This over that���that  under this���is the layered look-  Continuing on strong is the emphasis  on the shapes. The knits are everywhere.  They cling ahd reveal a long; slim silhouette.   There   are   turtle-neck   pullovers,  sleeveless cardigans or vests. The favorite  style is ribbing and ribbiiig makes them  cling. A clingy knit sweater is worn with  clingy pants for the "girls -who shape up  perfectly.     Burlington     Cameo's     body  stocking   and  All   Sheer pantyhose   are  fashionable  and  comfortable worn  with  the clingy knits.  Leather is.a fashion leader. Leather is  , shown in vests���some edged with fake  fur. Leather skirts arid jumpers are high  in favor and team up: with skirts and  sweaters. And of course, boots are back.  Scarves float freely. They add a cava-  i lier dash to outfits and come in long and  i extra-long lengths���matching cr in contrast. Gold chain belts are many splend-  ored accessories. They come looped and  heavily decorated. Gold chain vests  are  i used dramatically over black.   -  "The campus girl can be a gypsy if she  is in the mood," Miss Jardim concludes.  "An offshoot of the put together look,  the gypsy look takes patchwork and lace  and brilliant color, puts them together  with the gold and leather, and emerges  supremely individualistic. And don't ask  where the skirt iength is. It starts at the  ankle and ends high on the thigh. Anything goes this fall!"  ... W��dne~iw^Pesemkkl��.$jJ.96^  .

Pender Highlites  ���by Darlene Dubois  HI! I'M here to tell you all about our .  school activities here at Pender.  We have had q[uite a bit of activity  going on at the school lately! The senior  English classes have put on plays for the  whole school the last two Fridays and  another scheduled for Friday the 28th.  These plays were selected by the students and they had to get all the necessary props and costumes themselves. Mr.  Skelton is the critic and advisor. So far  they have been a great success. It has  been said that other classes may take up  the challenge and see if they can do better.   Good luck!  Another project around the school is  that of the school teams. All team members are working to raise enough money  to make a trip to Pemberton. They have  had a Bottle Drive, which was fairly successful, and their present effort is selling  tickets on a Christmas hamper. The draw  is to take place here at the school. " At  present they have raised forty dollars but  still have tickets and some bottles to be  sold. A far cry from the necessary two  hundred dollar goal; *"*���*** please support  your teams by buying their tickets!  j  f  / -1  i  Selma Pork is a large part of Hie Sunshine  Coast- Regional District and it is my firm view  that the time has arrived when a stronger voice  is needed.

Because of the varying conditions of  use and care in different homes, manu-  facrhirers are reluctant to set a iii___dmu_r_-  life guarantee on their produpte. Carpets  are .trade in varying grades td. suit all .requirements. This is once more a situation  where the customer is best advised to  rely on a knowledgeable salesman in a  reliable store.  An experienced and conscientious sales-*  man can be a great help to a customer in  making a wise choice. However, not all  carpet ijetail outlets have such salesmen  and often, rather than lose a sale, a salesman will give the . wrong advice;and  knowing a customer's limits budget, will  sell an unsuitable carpet. You will at least  be partially protected if you shop ait a  reliable local retail outlet; and you will  have someone to talk to if future trouble  occurs.  Selecting fibre for carpeting is a difficult decision. There is no single best fibre  for all uses as each fibre Kas^its advantages and disadvantages.  ' Tbi-ee of the most widely used fibres  are wool, nylon and acrylic but-cotton,  polyester, rayon and even paper are also  used.'  Wool is the oldest and most widely-  used fibre for carpet. It is a long-wearing fibre with excellent texture retention  qualities, resists soil, cleans well but stains  are sometimes difficult to remove. The  main" drawback to wool carpetj is that it  fuzzes, and lints, but the , fuzzing rate  drops off as the carpet grows older.  Nylon was first introduced about 25  years ago as the first synthetic fibre to  be used in carpets and has the reputation  of wearing like iron. Nylon costs more per  pound than wool, but as it wears better  than xvool, less nylon can be used in a  carpet to get the same amount of wear  as a wool carpet of similar price. The  best nylon carpet is made of tightly spun  yarn woven into a densely-packed, looped  pile carpet. This will give the most wear  with a minimum of matting down. The  lack of bounce in a relatively thin nylon  carpet can be restored by the use of a  heavier underpad. Nylon cleans well and  has good resistance to stains. "Pilling���a  problem when nylon was introduced���is  no longer a problem, A nylon carpet will  litst longer but will not look as well as  long as a carpet made frotn wool or  acrylic.  7 There seems to be some confusion aa  to the use of the term "Du Pont nylon  501," Carpets with this tag vary In i-rice  because thc tag refers only to the quality  Of the fibre and not to tlie method of  construction or style used by tlie carpet  manufacturer.  Acrylic and modacryllc fibres arc  popular for carpets nowadays. Acrylic  does not resist soil as well as wool but it  la very easy to clean. It has superior stain  resistance qualities- and almost matches  wool in its texture retention, compression  .resistance and appearance. If cost is a facr  tor, it is good to know that acrylic 'carpet  Is cheaper "than wool and nyIbn~afidlilmQst~~  matches the quality of wooL There is just,  one thing to remember. It is recommended .that, owners of all-acrylic fibres -take  more than ordinary fire precautions. .It'  was found that 100 per cent acrylic pile  is flammable, but pile made of blends of  acrylic and modacrylic fibre were found  safe. i  There is so' much to carpet buying that  cannot be seen or judged that ypu are  forced to rely on a brand name and a  knowledgeable and reputable salesman or  plealer. -in ..hopping for quo&tiafis an a  carpeting job, have the dealer put i_x writing exactly what his price includes ��� aikd  exactly what type of material will be prb-  videcL When you decide on a supplier,  _ask jfor a small sample of the material  so you* can-compare _t when the carpeting  is delivered.

THE PROBLEM of mental retardation is  one of the most serious health and social tjroblems of our times. If thete is  one thing that is <-ihinently clear, it is that  the proble-h is a polrtical bneYiwith ho  political overtones. Through the years, the  Association for Retarded Children of B.C.  has worked with the government. Federally, provincially and locally for the good  of ALL the retarded of our province.  The cause of the retarded has advanced  materially during the last dozen years.  Twelve years ago there were only about  100 retarded children in Chapter schools  2t a tremendous cost to their parents.  Now, of nearly three million spent annually in B.C. on 2,000 mentally retarded  in our communities, government spends  more than two million.  Two major threats facing the work on  behalf of mentally retarded in 1969 are  complacency and apathy. With 4he govv  ernment having assumed responsibihty for  the education of trainable retarded children there is a chance that many locals  may become complacent, that is, satisfied  with theit* efforis. This year more ihan  ever before, associations must assess fheir  goals, and members must rededicate themselves to the total needs of ihe menially  retarded. The best place to start helping  the retarded in 1969 is wi& YOU. The  mentally i-etatded need jnEspect-aiot pity  ���nor overprbteestion. They do need financial support for education and training,  treatment and care, but they hfeed personal  contact even more.  One of the most interesting programs  for the children of Happyvale School in  Penticton involves Chef Ron Jacyna of  Pilgrim House Motor, Hdiel Each Monday, he designs a luncheon menu, and  prepares a list of the necessary foodstuffs.  The children shop for it in rotating groups  of three, under the supervision of a volunteer. They leatti how to dioose fresh  vegetables and other foods and how to pay  for them.

A student receives 3 poihts,' A;l2  points, B; 1 point, C-f-; 0 point, C; minus  one point is C���.  These are averaged and if a student  has an average of 2.0 he receives honorable mention; anything above qualifies  for the Honor Roll.  It   would   seem   that   more  students'"  made the Honor Roll this year working;  on the Semester basis where only 3 or 4  subjects are studied intensively for half}  of the year.

Polling Stations arei located at:  Madeira Park Elementary School, Madeira Park, B.C.  ] Lloyd Davis,* Garden Bay, B.C.  Egmont School, Egmont, B.C.  Jim Tyner, who is the secretary of the Pender Harbour 8. District Ratepayers  ���Association, has ably represented the area for the past 2 years oh the Board  of Directors of the Sunshine Coast Regional District.  He has secured the approval of the Board for the establishment of a Medical  Clinic at Pender Harbour. Since we are situated at considerable distance from the  hospital at Secheit���this is of extreme importance to the people of this area.  Jim Tyner has secured the agreement of the Planning Committee of the  District to the proposal that the residents of the area will be permitted to  establish their own zoning regulations designed to fit their needs and way of life.  In the last 2 years Jim Tyner or his alternate William Scoular attended all  meetings of the Board of Directors of the Sunshine Coast Regional District  with the exception of 2 occasions when because of inclement weather and for  other reasons it was not possible to attend. So you may see that Pender Harbour  .was fully represented on the Board.  I cannot urge too strongly upon you the necessity of keeping this important  position of Director of the Sunshine Coast Regional District with the Ratepayers of  Pender  Harbour  and   Egmont.  candidate.  So  next  Saturday  get  out  and vote   for  your  VOTE: JAMES H. TYNER.  W. B. SCOULAR, President  Pender Harbour & District Ratepayers Association  I-'.-:   :��� :W--  '  ||.
