 1  No profits shown  ftflis  Wesj;-Canadian Graphic'Industries Ltd.t  . ).bdb West 5th Ave.,  ��� Vancouver- 9, B.C.  'Service  Registration No. 1142  2nd Class Mail  COUNCIL   of   Sechelt,   at   last   regular  meetiag February 4th, moved to up  the grant of $450 to $500 for this year's  May Day celebration despite a .word of  caution by acting Mayor Norm "Watson.  .. Alderman George Flay produced a  list of expenses involving, the May Queen  and ceremony which amounte��d to $54  above the $450 grant made last year by  council. This was ab'sorSed by the Sunshine Coast Lions Club which has undertaken operation of the annual event .for '  the past, few years.  Acting Mayor AVatson saidjie appre-  ��� ciates the fact that a great deal of voluntary labour is put into the projects by  the Lions members, but,-"this is part of  the functions, of such an organization  and while ,we have"~ff "list of costs "and  losses we should, in all fairness* also be  given a run c|own on profits."  Alderman Joe Benner pointed out  that apart from the $54 deficit, there are  also a number of unlisted incidentals.  Further, two bands took part in the parade and these-cost the community nothing. Tliis year a band from "Merrit has  been tentatively booked up and will cost  about $100.    *  Watson argued it must be borne in  mind that profits are made and this is  made possible by the grant from council.  He said it is -customary under such circumstances to allow 10% of profits to  cover'���any losses that might occur. Further, the*- acting,:Mayor expressed the  view that for a small village the size of  Sechelt to, expend $500' for a one. day  shot would seem to be getting a little  out of.,hand. He .said it is getting to the  stage whereby the benefits will need to  be considered in relation to costs.  ...'���"-' -  Aid. Benner said he would like to see  .the matter dealt with without delay for  other communities were after the band  arid it would  be  necessary  to  make a  firm committal without delay.  Alderman Flay said he did not consider $500' to be out of line "thing is we  either put on a May Day or we drop.it",,  he .stated. #.  Watson expressed the view that somewhere there must be a happy medium  "we could put on a show to equal Vancouver but there would be no money  for anything else for it would take up  our entire budget", he said.  Aid. Flay moved the Lions be offered ��� *ft  $500 -to undertake May Day again this  year. Council.so moved.  Serving the Sunshine Coost, (Howe Sound to Jervis Infet), including Port Mellon, Hopkins Landing, Granthams Landing, Gibsons, Roberts Creek,  Wilson Creek, Selma Park, Sechelt, Holfmoon Boy, Secret Cove, Pender Horbour, Modeiro Pork, Kleindale, Irvine's Landing,, Earl Cove, Egmont.  f"Jf*W?l  Gibsons centre  FACE LIFT for  the,Gibsons Memorial  Park  has been  presented  to  council  by way of proposals by landscape architect Alan DeBou of Vancouver.  Alderman Ken Goddard at last regular meeting of council outlined the*,  plans and explained that a stone wall to  ���^'height of approximately three foot had  been suggested for the graves area. This  would include an ���opening for entry and  the area would be built up a little. A  bronz plaque was also suggested to commemorate the Gibsons Family with appropriate shrubs planted to replace dead  holly trees.  Total  cost  was  estimated   at  $3*400,  HEARING  Pollution Control Board has scheduled  a Public Hearing for Halfmoon Bay resi-  rents:.who are-concerned;.with-xxn appHea- ���  tion by a subdivision developer who seeks  a permit for an outfall in the .bay.

Sechelt  Legion Hall. 9:30 a.m.  STUDENTS PRESENT  Students of Pender Harbour and Elphinstone High Schools present two interesting  nature and conservation films which  "should prove of great interest to all. February 1(5 at Elphie auditorium and Feb.  17 at Pender High. This is a student fund  raising project and worthy of full support. Further details advertised within  this copy of The Times.  TOURIST BOOTH  At last executive meeting of the Sechelt and District Chamber,of Commerce,  President Joe Benner reported donation  of a small building to the Chamber for  use as a tourist bureau. The building is of  historic interest and il wus moved funds  be used.to fix the building up rather than  support a Lower Mainland tourist organization.  HONOUR ROLL  Second report, January 30, 1070.

Grade 12,  Helen Dlmopoulos, Linda Johnson, Wendy  Mercer.  about $1,400 of whiclj would involve  cost of the wall and clearing up the grave  area. However. Mayor Wally Peterson  suggested that this work could be carried out by, the village work crew jbA a  cost of approximately $600 possibly a  little  more.  Alderman Goddard advised council  that if it goes ahead with the project, it  will be expected to maintain the park.  Mayor Peterson agreed that it is only  right council should take care of maintenance. He added that the proposed wall  would be similar to the rock used on the  rest room in the park.   ���  Approval of the scheme was given in  principle pending approval by members -  of the Gibson family.  GARBAGE DUMP  Alderman Goddard drew attention, to  the fact that the Gibsons garbage dump  under the control of the Regional Board  is in deplorable condition. This brought  a chuckle from Aid. Gerry Dixon who  commented that at a meeting of the  Regional Board a few days previous, the  Secretary Treasurer had stated the dumps -  are in excellent condition.  AIRPORT  -���->   Alderman,.Goddard said he had noth-.  ing, to report-on the airport "there has  been no meeting of the committee since  the first of the year", he added.  Aid. Croby commented "It is Sechelt's  turn for chairing the committee this  year".  STREET LIGHTS  New street lights have been established where needed and the lighting  program for the expanded area of the  n village has been completed, reported Aid.  Dixon who said he understands work had  already started on lighting for Granthams Landing. This will mean a black  spot between Granthams and Gibsons  and therefore, perhaps the Highways  Dcpt. should be asked to consider a few  lights between the two communities.  It was moved Ihe Department be contacted as a first measure.  SCHOOL CROSSING  Patrol of the Elementary school crosswalk, suspended two weeks ago because  of hazard created by vehicles which  ignored the students signals, is to be re-  institutcd.  Administrator Dave Johnston told  council he hadibeen informed by Corporal  Biggemann of the RCMP detachement  that police would be co-operating with  the pijtrol. In order to improve vision  of the highway from School Road, the  Corporal asked if council have an old  stump taken out on the coiner. Mr. Johnston told council the work has now been  carried  out.  t-.i aia^ii-iaaaaa-  Early Spring  Selma Beach fishermen will have a;  job to beat Mr. Steve Pilot's first  catch of the year ��� a beautiful 26  pound Spring Salmon caught %yithin  minutes of launching his boat at 4  p.m. on Tuesday of last week. Caught  on, a Tom Mack the silver beauty  was already dressed by the time we  caught up with it. Mr. and Mrs. Pylot  who have retired, not only enjoy fresh  salmon caught almost on their doorstep at Selma Beach but also grow  outstandingly   large   .vegetables   in  their garden where the'beetroot are  10* inches in diameter.  Clean-up sought . . .  o  AT LEAST two Aldermen were concerned  with reports of a recent dance held  in the Elphinstone auditorium which  developed into a hippy "pot in" but they  were rebuffed by acting Mayor Norm  Watson who insisted it was not the concern of .council. ���**'  At last meeeting of Sechelt Village  Council, Alderman Joe Benner brought  ���*_ , ������, *___,   Board meeting  questions raised -'hostility'  REPORTING on last meeting of the Regional Board, Mayor Wally Peterson  told Council of Gibsons he had brought  up the fact that Director Frank. West  had seen fit to write the Pollution  Control Board in regards to Council's  plans for a sewer outfall at Gospel Rock.  In light of the fact West had written  as a Director of the Regional Board, he  asked for a copy of his letter, only to  discover that onp was not on file, how-  over, West had said he would send the  Mayor a copy.  Mayor Peterson added "he became  quite hostile about the matter and was  backed up by the Board and Chairman  who stated he could write as he wishes  as a Director. I1 guess I was out of order  for questioning the situation", he said.  The Mayor also leportcd that a letter  from the PCB has asked .whether the  Board planned on taking an active interest  in the Gibsons sewer project. As a result  the matter was put in the very capable  hands" of Mr. West.  Alderman Gerry Dixon said that he  too attended the Board meeting but, it  was his opinion that little wus accomplished.  Alderman Ken Goddard expressed the  view that following a study by aldermen  of a treatment plant in Langley, 'similar  to.that proposed by council,/^ full report;  bo  published   with   co-operation  of the  press in order that people know the true  facts of the situation.  Alderman Charles Mandelkau commented that it seems to him that had the  proposed outfall been anywhere but at  Gospel Rock, certain people who are  complaining could probably have- cared  less.  Aid. Goddard added that the only  people shouting are the few objectors  and it is unfortunate that the great majority of people who support the scheme  are saying nothing.  Mayor Peterson stated that if anyone  needs sewers it is the people at Gower  Point where, he said, he has noted drinking water used from shallow surface  water. On top of this he has observed  a septic tank bubbling to tho surface in  nt least one instance. "It Is very evident  that a health hazard exists under such  circumstances",  he  said.  Describing the type of plant planned  for the village, Mayor Peterson said it is  a secondary treatment plant Involving a  number of processes which break down  the effluent which is finally deposited  Into a section of the plant from which  It may be used for fertilizer-. Liquids are  then purified and are pumped out as  clear liquid,  Referring to the Regional Board meeting, the Mayor mild "Mr, West secmr.  to think we Intend pouring raw sewage  into the sea."  the matter up and suggested Council  write the School Board expressing concern.  Mayor Watson said in his opinion it is  a matter for the police, not council. He  added that he does noU condone  illegal  drinking or "pot" smoking but as council recently expressed confidence in the  School Board he saw no reason to express  non-confidence on this issue.  - Aid. George Flay disagreed andjointed  outthat it is a guestion of indicating concern that -the, auditorium ^shouldjhe. used  " fot* Jsuch' a *purp6s'Sr_'rWc are asked  to  approve the schboT"BuSget and I would  ssuggest  we should be  able  to express  our views on this incident" he said.  Aid. Benner said that as a member of  the Chamber of Commerce and as a taxpayer he feels something should be done  to clean up the hippy situation ,fthis  place is becoming a haven for hippies  and we should be doing something about  it" he commented.  Mayor Watson pointed out that it is  also a question of what one would call  a hippy. He said it could prove difficult  deciding* which is a school attending  hippy and a non-school attending hippy.  Aid. Benner replied that it was his  understanding the hippies were not  students and that Ihe School Board was  ���see page A-3  WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY T1, 1970      IOc  Volume 7, No. 11 lOPagcs  Safety patrol renewed  co-operation of RCMP  GIBSONS RCMP detachment has agreed  to co-operate with the school patrol at  the intersection of Highway 101, North  and School Roads where a hazardous _  crossing exists. The patrol was recently  discontinued due to fact motorists were  not co-operating and were, in some  cases, ignoring the youngsters.  Shortly before the hours of 9 a.m. and  3 p.m. almost 500 young students are  involved in getting to and ���from" school.  Police have agreed to explain responsi- _  bility of motorists and will maintain a  patrol of the area during danger periods.  Section 169 (4) of the Motor-Vehicle  Act states: "The driver of a motor vehicle  shall obey the instructions of school pupils  acting as members of school patrols  provided under the Public Schools Act.  Violators are subject to a maximum fine  of $500.  Mayor and Alderman  inspect sewer plant  MAYOR  Wally  Peterson and Alderman  Ken Crosby, accompanied by Chamber ���-  of Commerce president Dick Blakeman,  visited the Aldergrove sewage treati^nt  plant last Friday February 6th inN6Mer  to check on its "efficiency due to the ftM  it is identical to the plant planned fdj-  the new Gibsons sewer system.  On their return Mayor Peterson told  The Times the secondary treatment plant  surpassed all expectation. He said he  only wished others, who arc presently  registering opposition to the Gibsons  project, could see the plant.  Mayor Peterson explained that after  treatment, only a small amount of solid  remains and this can be put to use as  fertilizer. Much of the solid is eaten up  by bacterior. Actual outfall is quite clear  and at the Aldergrove. plant it is poured  out into a creek upon which ducks and  geese thrive quite happily. Addition of  , chloride is optional for any bacterior  entering the outfall is killed the moment  it comes in contact with cold water.  Mayor Peterson, Alderman Crosby  and the Chamber president have indicated complete satisfaction with the treatment plant and it is understood a Powell  River .group is to visit the same plant  with a view to establishing two in the  Powell River area.  Hydro warns drivers  on falling power line  ���DO YOU" know what to do if your car  hits a power pole, and an overhead  wii;e comes down on the vehicle?  Stay where you are, say B.C. Hydro  safety men.  Warn other people to stay away.  Have someone phone B.C. Hydro or  the police ��� at once.  You'll be safe as long as you stay in  the car, If you must get out, leap free  of the car with no pai't of you or your  car touching it and the ground at the  same time,  Never try to cut fallen wires. Wires  that appear to be dead may not be.  If it is absolutely necessary to pull  away a fallen wire, a completely dry rope  or u long, thoroughly dry stick can be  used. But the best rule is to wait for an  experienced B.C, Hydro crew to respond  to the emergency call.

Looking Ahead
Since September^ Mrs. Gladys Legh
has been conducting a special class
for three students unable to study in
the normal school classroom. Every
morning in the cramped quarters 6f
the old nurse'-s room at Gibsons Elementary School, she conducts her
special class." Next Wednesday at
Feb. 18th 8 p.m. at Elphinstone
School, Sechelt and District Retarted
Children's Association will be meeting to discuss the future of the class
which at present is limited to the
three chairs due to lack of accommodation. Everyone interested in
assisting handicapped children is
invited to attend.  „

not aware of the dance, ■ nefther was it
a school function.
Aid. Flay added that by saying nothing, council is, in effect, condoning the
situation "I fcel.it should be considered a
council problem too" he said'.
The matter was dropped following
statement by the acting Mayor that it is
not council's affair and certainly not a
function of council.
Aid. Benner drew attention to the
fact an oil line along the James Wharf
on the Sechelt waterfront is damaged as
a result of the last storm which also
damaged the,. wharf "another storm and
it could really go", he said.
Aid. Watson asked "are you suggesting the owner, or those responsible, be
informed they will have to accecpt responsibility in event of oil leakage and
likely pollution?"        ,.   ,,...,. 	
Benner replied that certainly there
would be pollution and other hazards
should bad breaks occur.
p On a suggestion by Aid. Harold Nelson, it was'moved the oil company involved be informed and a copy of the
letter go to the owner Mr. Art James.
It was reported that locations have
been marked along Cowrie Street for
flowering cherry trcces. Nino planters
will he installed to a height of thirty
inches or so and it is hoped to add a few
more trees each year,
Mayor Watson, commenting on Inst
meeting of the Regional Board, said a
number of Selma Park residents hud be'en
'"present to protest the fact that under
new zoning they have been put into the
Davis Buy area with increased luxes for
street lighting. "They wore perfectly
justified in protesting the whole thing
was badly done. I am not in a position
to say who is passing the buck but someone is" he mldcd.
Proposed subdivision plans for West
Toi-poise Bay were again submitted by
Stanley and Associates on behalf of Town-
line Developers, These had been rejected
al tin earlier meeting because of failure
by Ihe planners to include public waterfront   access.
This time a public* access road had
been included hut was in a location
council had previously ruled as unsuitable. Furl her It was pointed out that the
plans had obviously been drawn out
without consideration, or awareness, of
land  contours.
It was moved the plans he held on file
pending further discussions with the
LAST YEAR  Sechelt  arid  District Re-foster progress of the Association: for it
tarded Children's Association complied
wiili regulations \netessary to establish a
special scliool for handicapped children
in,the district and\qualify for a grant to

-mVs. Gladys Legh was. appointed
teacher and since la'et September she
has been teaching three students in. trie
only room available at. Gibsons Elementary. School.
The School Board is in no way obligated to provide classropin accommodation but feeling "that the children are
better studying within the (normal school
atmosphere rather than being in ari
isolated building, the Board'allowed the
local Chapter of the Retarded Children's
Association to use the former .nurse's
room at Gibsons Elementary School.
-Progress of the three stuudents since
September has been most encouraging
and Mrs.' Legh is n.osrrappreciative of
the help given by Elementary School
Supervisor, Mr. Peter Slinn and School
Principal Mr. George Cooper.
The two younger children are able to
join Mrs. Alley's class during the afternoon but the. third student who would
dearly love to be able to continue with
handicrafts only studies for the morning
and the room is much too small for the
active students who love to work with
their hands. , ..»■/

Q. I should like to know whether a
man of 65, who is getting the Old Age
Pension and is also working^ may have
stamps put in his Unemployment" Insurance book? I was told that a man on
pension should not both work and have
stamps placed in his book, because he
should not be getting two salaries.
A. You have been misinformed. There
is no age limit, nor is a 'means test' required, for Unemployment Insurance.
Q. At our head office we have Social
Insurance Number cards for every employee across Canada. Do we have to
keep them oh file for ever?
A. No. At the time of registering your
employees you received three sets. Two
were plaslicized and were to be given •
to the employees. The third set, marked
'Employer's Part', was of paper. On it
and'on the small yellow folder that accompanied it was the note that the paper
version could be destroyed, once the Social Insurance Number had- been recorded against the employee's name on
your personnel and/or payroll records.,

L -* Ax* Pm sorry but you can't have your stamp collection back till you've paid us the gains tax . .  Benson's White Paper . .  99  IT IS significant that, among all tho protests against various phases" of the Tru-  deau - Benson tax reform, one proposal  has received support���the institution of a  capital gains tax.  How it is to be applied provides an  area for lively discussion, but the accepted part, a tax on capital gains already  realized, raised little objection.  Strong objection is against the capital  gains as applied to gains NOT realized, as  in the case of appreciated value of a lot  or a stock or any other holding you may  have, and upon which the government  proposes to place a 21% tax whether you  have sold the holding or not. In this  case, you might have a holding you do *  nut wish to sell at the time the tax is demanded, but whicbryou may have to sell  against your better judgment in order to  find the cash to pay the tax. A coin or  stamp collection is a simple example; or  a blue-chip^stock which is paying you.  dividends(^mcrat the same time increasing  in value.  The government intends, apparently,  to stop you getting ahead and eventually  take all you own if you happen to*' be in  business for yourself.  However, since a capital gains tax is  going to be implemented, your interest  will be in how Trudcau - Benson propose  to do it. Several of their proposals arc  highly dubious, appearing to come from  a theoretical mind (such as a university  professor, which Mr. Benson was before  Ids election) rather than one accustomed  to dealing with practicalities.  " One proposal that would have the  greatest direct impact on the most people  , j's' tho prospect of a capital gains tax on  profits made in the sale of houses.  The white paper offers an exemption  of $1,000 for each year that a person has  owned his home. A man who buys a  house for $20,000 nnd sells it five years  Inter for $25,000 would pay no capital  gains tax on the Role. If he sold the house  for $30,000 he would pny tax on $5,000  of his. profit,  CAPITAL GAINS ON HOMES  "Generally," the white paper observes,  "capital gains on the sale of homes would  not he tnxed" as a result of tho exemption,  It also points out that the exemption  would serve to eliminate tho problem in  the event that u person lost money on  the snlo of a house, of 'determining how  much of the loss occurred because of .wear  nnd tear on the home nod how much because of changes In the real estate market.  The white paper also allows the homeowner to deduct front his profit any money  spent on Improvement,! to the house, If  lie chooses not to Iteep records of Improvements, he can deduct a straight $130  a year,  These exemptions, the paper says,  make it unnecessary to allow (he homeowner to deduct from his income any  losses on the sale of property,  Unfortunately,    Ihe    authors    of    the  white   paper  seem   unaware  of  what   Is  happening   lo   real   estate   values   across  Canada these days, and what is likely lo  happen in the future,  The Canadian Association of itenl Estate Hoards him computed the change;; in the price;, of homes  sold through multiple listing In 12 major  Canadian cities In the In:,I year, nnd found  that In Vancouver, lor Instance, the one-  yenr Increase In value (December  10(111 lo  December  IHUIM was nn average Hi'.', or  IS'1500 on ii $.'.ll,<in0 home,  This makes Mr,  Heuson'n offer of >111(10 per year an a lux  credit i,com iioiitetliiug let,!, lliaii icnlislW:,  What  it means to lla* average homeowner I:, thai, living In a $20,0111. hou e, it  will  have appreciated $:tiM<��, while he i-s  ��� inly  granted a  tax  benefit  of $1(1(10 , ,  .  leaving   him   to   pay   a   $.r.2()   lux   on   the  ��(MHJ<��nisJ $.2!>OW    }|��* luen'l -old l,,s I.oiim*  he I*. .'.(Ill living In II as n <jii|et clli/en;  Iml every live ycai-i Mr, H<>mmou pi opotcn  to  come   mound   and   say   "You   owe   un  .���nine cash .  ,  .  please pay  up , . ,  now,"  About Uie only way tu uvoid il would  be to let the house run down so that its  value decreases year after year . . . until  it becomes unfit for occupation.  It's not as though there were anything  indecent in making a profit on the sale  of one's house. Most people who sell  houses do so to buy another house. Their  "profit" usually means-.,tho value of their  house is simply keeping up with the general trend of a rising real estate market,  and as a result they will be able to buy  another house of equal value. Taxing that  "profit" simply *%��8ans that the home owner will have to find some more cash from  another source if he hopes to sell one  house and buy another that is its equivalent.   ��� ..-'-.'.'. T' ���������  DEMAND GOVERNS  PRICE OF HOUSES  For most people, this simply will result in being taxed for inflation from  which they don\ benefit, except in fairly  rare circumstances.  Nor is it likely that house prices are  going to slow down in the foreseeable  future. Real estate prices usually go up  because of increased demand. In all the  urban areas of Canada, there is a fixed  supply of land and a fast-growing population. That means rising house prices, no  matter what. With a capital gains tax on  homes, it means Canadians will find it  even moro difficult to houso themselves  in the future.  The same adjustment holds true on the  proposal to tax gains on the sole of summer cottages.  In this part of the country, at least,  vacation property need not be a luxury.  Recreational lots can still be bought for  less than a new car, and only a few years  ago this included waterfront lots. They  are by no menns the privilege of the  wealthy. ���  , But they are, all marked by sharply  rising values, which makes them a nice  target for land speculation. Most land  speculators, who arc in the business, already pay taxes on their profits, Under  the white paper proposals, the man who  buys property for enjoyment, nnd sells it  later to buy another, could lose a third or  more of the sale price to the government,  Again, he would bo falling far behind a  rising market.  TAX GAINS ON HOBBIES  The same is true of the proposal to  tax gains on hobbles, such as collecting  art, stamps, coins, oi anything else that  docs not depreciate in value through use,  In this case the capital, gains tax does not  come into effect, unless the purchase or  sale price of the object is more than $!i00,  bid H Mill helps to make almost any kind  of collecting an expensive hobby,  II Is Important to realize here just  wind a fairly modes! rate of inflation can  do over a few years, An annual price Increase of six  per cent, for example, can  it expects to get the bulk of its extra  revenue under the new proposals from  the corporate sector. The increase in  taxes on that side of th^^Tedger would  have been $560 million if the full system  had been in effect in 1969.  CORPORATION TAXES COMPLICATED  The most important question on cor- "  porate tax proposals to the general public  is what the new tax proposals will do to  the economic growth of the country. They  are called "corporate" taxes, and for this  reason a great many people dismiss them  as tax proposals affecting only "big"  business.  If should be understood that a corporation can���and often does���consist of  only two people, often a man and wife,  who choose to incorporate (or make a  "limited" or "Ltd." company of) their  business for simplicity in accounting and  for personal protection in case they can't  make a go of their little business. Powell  River has something over 200 of these  small limited companies, or corporations,  as well as its corporate giant, MB Ltd.  Most people have a grossly inflated  idea of corporate profits, large or small.  In Canada, wages and salaries totalled  $40 billion lost year, while corporate  profits totalled one-fifth of that' . . . only  $8 billion, before taxes.   ���  Corporation taxes will go up, undor  tho proposals, anywhoro from 20% to  140%.  Economic experts wonder if that  amount of money can be taken out of  Canada's investment capital and still allow the growth necessary for a burgeoning population,  Small businesses especially, those employing from 2 to 50 people, will find it  hard if not impossible to survive; since  there are 140,000 small businesses in Canada with an average of 10 employees, one  wonders where these l',ij million employees would turn for Jobs if their employer  closed up or was swallowed by a giant,  (When the amalgamation of a giant and  a small business takes place, from one-  half "to two-thirds of the existing jobs  evaporate,)  A study of this article and the one  accompanying It will indicate that no one  can afford to be smug about the new tax  proposals hilling just "the other guy,"  It Is true they eliminate taxes for a  number of Canadians in the under-$300l)  a year bracket . . . but this is fair enough  in the light of inflated prices.  Hut. the Implication*, of'growing unemployment as a result of the new tax proposals, the taking of 2l'Jf of appreciated  value on your home and some of your  personal possessions whether or not you  have cash to pay fen* the unrealized capital  gain, Ihe demand for a portion, every  five years, of your Investments in savings  raise the value of an Item by 50 per cent      all these Indicate Hint In about, ten years  in seven years,  In thin cnao, as with vacation property  and homes. the white paper propoaca to  drop tho distinction, which exlsta in tho  present nyntom, botwoen investment 'for  uso or enjoyment nnd investment for  profit,  A rout- benefit approach lo this decision would ho well worth the effort, The  white paper doesn't break down Ihe  amount of money It expects to get from  the capital gains lax. but Hie total that  would enino from Individual*!, If the ttys-  lein had been fully applied in I DIM,' Is  $'.-..'�� million- lost!

It Is also possible that Mr. Benson's  White Paper is a monumental effort in  gel hefty new tax Income, lo spend on  more and more welfare through wasteful  and Inefficient government handling by  lho simple method ot proposing a giant  confiscation through taxation, and then  "relenting" on some points in response to  the complaints and protest,*; which were  expected ajul which are dally mounting  tlirouglioul ('lunula,  I,live Hit* man wlio,,wlien usltcil why la*  i.tout! hitting his load against a lank  wall, said  "H   leels so  good  when  I ilup  Mr. Benson has mi ved up a sweeping  i,el of conl is calory pioposals, Hy bucking  down on points already determined, in*  ���nn make hVi government seem like kind  ly, practical people , , , yet he still ends  up'With more money than he needs,  OTTAWA'S "White Paper" on tax "reform" has been a cleverly ^presented  political document which initially struck  the average person as a good thing, since  it proposed to wipe out income taxes for  some, while lowering taxes for others.  The implication that .most people in Powell River seem to have taken is that it's  a soak=the~-rich proposal, and since it ~  won't affect.them, well, let it be. Why  rock the boat?  The tax reform proposals have much  more serious implications. They would,  in effect, bring full socialism into Canada  through the back door, with a small group  (mostly non-elected advisers) in Ottawa  laying out the rules while ignoring Parliament.  Individual taxpayers will actually end  up paying far more as a result of the  proposed tax "reform" in spite of the  feeling they now have that they will pay  less. These individual taxpayers had better start worrying their MP's about it.  Wlr. Benson has been quite free with  his time in "explaining" some of the tax  proposals to Ordinary people. (His travel  expense, over $10,000 for the past year,  was the highest of any cabinet minister.)  But if you have paid attention to these  "explanation^" you will see that this former university professor and onetime  accountant is very astute at choosing only  the examples which favor his side of the  case���billions of dollars more for Ottawa  to spend on socialistic programs that will  entrench them in office forevermofe.  } The first thing you have lo realize  about lax systems is lhal politicians rarely lell the truth about them. They talk  about equality, justice, fairness and fiscal  effect asfhough that's what tax systems  were all about.  The second thing is that Hie public  rarely realizes what it's all about either.  People are concerned with what the tax  system means to them���whether they'll  have to pay more or less, and how much.  But that's not the point of tax systems  either.  The prime single purpose of a tax system is to raise money for governments.  After that's ensured, then all the other  things that people talk about are taken  into account.  So far, in the debate about...the federal  government's new tax proposals, attention has been focussed on the inconse-  quentials. Nobody has looked at it from  the basic point of view���how much cash  it will bring in.  A rough-and-ready projection of the  proposed new income tax rates indicates  that the new formula, five years after it  comes into effect, could be producing at  least $2 billion a year more in income tax  revenues than the existing rates would.  If the rates aren't changed, the extra  revenue would grow rapidly-with , each  extra year, automatically giving the government a bigger and bigger share of the  country's economy.  The reasons for this are interesting,  and it is hard to believe they haven't  been carefully calculated by the federal  civil servants who drew up the federal  white paper on tax reform. To understand the reasons for the increased revenue, and its implications, it is first necessary to have a picture pt the Canadian  income tax system; and the distribution  of incomes in Canada.  The income tax system works quite  simply���it takes in a small amount of  revenue from a -fairly large number of  people at the bottom of the income scale,  a massive amount of money from the majority of people in the middle and upper  middle of the income range, and a small  amount from the tiny number of people  at the top.  In 100G, for example, the system worked like this:  At tho bottom of the scale were, 1,7  million people who earned less than $3,000  in that year; they paid less than five percent of the total tax collected,        .  At the top were 6,600 people wjdh incomes over $50,000; they paid 5 Ms per cent  of the tax.  Tho other 00 per cont of tho money  collected como from the 4.6 million taxpayers whoso incomes ranged from ��3,000  to $50,000.  The second key point is the range of  incomes In the country. In 196(1, the incomes reporto"d by Canadian 'taxpayers  broke down like this:  BIG GROUP EARNS S5000 TO $10,000  ,. The biggest income class by far, both  In number of taxpayers nnd total Income  earned, was those people earning between  $5,000 and $10,000���but. that's not the  whole story. Far more Important is the  rate at which those income classes are  growing. When 11)0(1 is compared with  11)110, for example, it shows that practically all of tho growth comes above the  $5,000 income level.  What tills means Is that between 1.MI0  and 1011(1 the number of taxpayers In the  Income classes over $5,0110 more than  doubled. The number earning between  $10,000 and $25,000 nearly tripled, As  average Incomes started picking up sharply In 1005 and 10IH1, the first two of the  last four Inflationary years, those rates  of Increase grow even more sharply,  In the immediate future, Ibis pattern  shouldn't change significantly, Trade  union members, for example, are now  Marling to spill over into the $10,000-25,-  (100 class along with Ihe Junior executives,  Manufacturing wages are now high  enough that most people .coming Into lho  labor force will start off earning more  than $5,000 n year, II anything, Ihe future  will bring even sharper rises in tho number of people earning more Hum $5,(1110 a  vear.  example, has calculated that income tax  revenues, using the l'969 rates, would rise  from a total of $5.1 billion in 1967 to $12.8  billion in 1975. This is an increase of 150  per cent, even though the country's  Wealth was only expected to-grow by 53  per cent in the same period.  But the federal government does not  Intend IcTkeep lhe^969^ales. Il proposes  to change them, and in a very significant  way.  First, the white paper proposes that ���  income taxes be eliminated for 750,000  persons on the bottom end of the income  "scale, by raising personal exemptions. If  it had done that simply by exempting everyone earning less than $3,000 a year  from paying income tax, that would be  cheap���it would have cost less than five*  per cent of income tax revenues in 1966.  The government will also cut the top  tax rates, which now rise to more than  80 per cent, down to 51 per cent as the  capital gains tax is introduced. That too  is cheap, because there are only a few  thousand taxpayers- paying more- than  51 per cent on any part of their, income..  It's what happens in the middle that's  interesting. The income lax rates now  start at 14 per cent, and don't go over 21  per cent until taxable income reaches  $2,000. The new rates start at nearly 22  percent, and go up faster from there than.  the old-rates do.  The result of all this is that the new  rates and exemptions ease taxes at the  lower income levels, but start to bite more  heavily at anywhere from $3,000 to $12,-  000 of income, depending on how many  exemptions the taxpayer qualifies for.  And the income levels which get more  heavily hit are those where the number  of taxpayers is growing fastest. The government has given up a small amount of  revenue from the slow-growth income  classes in return for a larger share of the  money from the fast-growth classes.  The white paper, and. the government's  subsequent comments on it, carefully refrain from speculating on what the effect  of the new rates will be on government  revenues oyer an extended time period.  In fact, there is even some doubt about  what the immediate revenue effect of the  new system -will be.  The white paper says that the new  system, if it had been fully applied in  1969, would have meant $630. million more  in government revenue���$30 million more  from the new personal income tax system  plus capital gains tax, and $600 million  more from  corporate tax  changes.  TAX REVENUES LEAP  But the Ontario government, which  fan the white paper proposals through its  oWn computer, found that the immediate  revenue increase should be at least $1000  million, and perhaps more.  Ontario's results indicated the white  paper seriously underestimated the potential revenue increases from the new system, and over-estimated the potential  losses.  That may just boil down lo an argument about whose computer is right���  Ontario's or Ottawa's. Still it seems amazing that a country can contemplate going  into a major tax reform with that much  doubt about what its effect will be���even  in the first year.  But it doesn't Jake a computer to see  tl^i't income taxes will grow faster under  the new system���the only question Is how  much faster.  Assume Canadian incomes grow at the  fairly modest rate experienced in 1960-66  ���considerably less than the rate of the  last two or-three years.- If the income  growth keeps occurring mainly in the  middle and upper income levels, then the  white paper system would probably produce $2 billion a year more, five years  after it is introduced, than the old rates  would have done. The longer the implementation of the white paper is delayed,  and the faster incomes grow, the wider  the gap.will be.  This leads to two other questions that  the while paper answers only imperfectly,  "ot not at all: Are Canadian income taxes  loo high, and what will happen to the  extra revenue? ,  The white paper appears to answer the  first question by claiming that the new  system would mean that most Canadians  would pay less in income tax plus Canada  Pension Plan contributions than they  would pay in the U.S.' for income tax and  social security contributions. Unfortunately, this answer is hardly, satisfactory.  In the first place,; a^ j|ie time of the  comparison the American taxpayer was  paying a 10 per cent surtax on top of his  regular income tax. In the second place,  the U.S. government has just cut its income taxes by a substantial amount.  U.S. TAXES CUT  The results are instructive. The Americans have also cut taxes at the lower income levels���but they've cut taxes all the  way up, toop The new rates are sharply  lower than those proposed in the white  paper.  By 1973, when the U.S. cuts are fully  implemented, a married couple with two  children ahd income of $5,000 a year will  pay $140 a year in federal income taxes;  in Canada, under the white paper, they  would pay $608. If their income were  $J.O,000, they would pay $905 in the U.S.  and $1,830 here. At $20,000 they would  pay $3,010 in the U.S. and. $5,722 in Canada. The same kind of differences will  exist all across the board.  In the U.S., of course, there .would be  state income tax on top of the federal  levy in many casos, but it would rarely be  enough to make up the differences.  That's not the only problem. The  American taxpayer has far more deductions available to him than his Canadian  counterpart, including such major items  as interest on his mortgage.  The conclusion is simple: Whether or  not income taxes in Canada are "too high"  they are certainly considerably higher  than in the U.S., our main competitor for  the brains of our most able people.  The other question���what will happen  to the extra moneylhe government stands  to get under the new rate structure���just  can't be answered. No government likes  to admit how much money it's going to  take out of people's pockets and the federal government so far hasn't done so.  But nothing could make a government  happier than to know it is going to have  a lot of extra money in the future.  If the white paper does "mean an extra  few billion in income taxes for the government that money would be'politically  useful around about the time of the next  election to reduce Ihe income' lax rales  the government wiil just have applied. It  could also be used to eliminate the 11 per  cent federal sales tax which people have  been complaining about for years but  which successive governments have maintained sirnply because Ihey needed the  money.  Or the government could keep the  money and use it to finance new programs  to entice the voters. It's a nice flexible  position to be in-^at the taxpayer's expense.-  rafafafaTafararafaTafl^^  What can YOU do? . . .  ��  ��� ���  ���WiE(S  AS MORE and more "average" people  become aware of the implications of  tho Benson White Paper ns it will affect  their own personal plans, and they become  more alarmed at what amounts to government, takeover of their private assets,  the question arises: "What can wo do?"

Our  family misses worshipping in church with  people who share our beliefs. Other people in the logging camps also miss this as  evidenced by the religious reading material in the camp "library". *  Our family has solved this problem  in several ways. One is by listening to  inspirational radio programs. Another is  through subscribing to Christian reading,  material. Finally we hold our own worship services.  ��� These services are very simple. We  sing "favorite hymns, have prayer, and  read a chapter from the Bible. Lastly,  we discuss how we can apply Christian  principles in our own lives.  When we lived., in town our lives  centred around ..church activities but we  seldom found time as a family to discuss  our beliefs. "Out here we've had time to  read through the New Testament and to  discuss with our children what it says.  Some of our discussions are long and  lively; such as when, we talked about how  we should spend our money. Other talks  are "briefer, -more subdued. But they all  make us think for ourselves, examine  what we believe and why we believe it.  The one question which pops up again  and again is ���do we believe it enough  to live it?  Several times other people have joined  with us for "church". Once a Catholic  couple met with us. Another time it was  a family who doesn't attend church. Still  another instance was a family who'belongs., to a different Protestant denon.if.a-  tion than we do. Out of the ensuing discussions -we, and our children, .learned  much about the other's .beliefs. More  important, we all worshipped God.  During warm weather we held; church  on the beach. We sat in the warm sun,  looking out over the blue water, and  sang hymns; such as "The Cleansing  Wave". God seemed very near ahd real.  Our open air services sometimes had  ���-by Pat Kcr.oyet  strange visitors, it was common for our  dogs and cat to follow us to the beach  and lie quietly at our feet through the ���  entire service. Once a heron flew to the  top of a nearby tree and remained there,  at attention, until church was over. Another  time   an   osprey   interrupted the  service by repeatedly Swooping down to  the water in front of us after food.  ���   While life in the wilderness does lack  because we're unable to attend regular  church services, yet it has its spiritual  benefits. I think anyone would gain from  a period spent out here where there is  time and solitude lo examine life and  oneself. Because of our time lived here  the members of our family are better  fitted to occupy a responsible place in  today's complex and troubled society.

He is now at  Frobisher on Baffin Ysland where during  January, they had a r temperature of 30  below zero fahreflheit accompanied by  winds of 100 miles per hour.  This combination, of wind and temperature produces a chill factor far exceeding 100 degrees below.-  ;   Exposed flesh freezes almost instantly.  To go outdoors, he wore a parka  ���which completely covered his face, leaving only two eyeholes. Within the parka  he wore goggles. Feet and hands being  also sheathed in clothing, no flesh was  exposed to the wind. He could move  among houses in the settlement with one  hand on the guide rope which is run  among them. Such a wind raises so much  snow that visibility is almost zero. A  man's hand cannot be seen at his arm's  length. Ropes are the only method of  guiding people from one building to the  next. ���-   I wondered once again, as we sat in  my office, what it is about the Arctic  which so powerfully attracts some men  that danger and discomfort appear to  be matters of such scant consideration.  By ordinary terms, Mr. Nair is as unlikely  a northerner as could be found. He is a  dark-skinned man from the c.ity of Tri-  vandrum in Kerala, India. He was born in  the tropics. His parents and the rest of  his close, relatives remain there now. -  His choice was. to come to Canada and  to become a Canadian for the specific  purpose of going to live in the Arctic.  "From school days, "I was always  fascinated with the Far North," he said,  J"We read about the Eskimos and the  snows and the ice and it was always my  dream that some day I would go there."  Mr. Nair became a wireless operator  and sailed for a time on British cruise  ships. He applied for entry into Canada  in 1958, telling our surprised and dubious  immigration authorities that he wanted  to live in the North. He became a citizen  in 1963. ^  H>-went promptly to the north, first  ^s-^a  wireless  operator for the  federal  department of transport,  more  recently  as  an  employee of the  department of  northern development.  In 12^. years, he has crisscrossed much  of the vast empty lands to the north of  us comfortable Canadians.  He listed them: beginning at Winnipeg,  he went to Brochet in Northern Manitoba,  then Ennedai Lake, on the Barren lands,  NWT; Resolute, in the High Arctic and  Alert, which is only about 400 miles from  the North Pole. Then Mould Bay, Resolute  again, Sudbury and Nakina in northern  Ontario and Dorc Bay in Manitoba; Sachs  Harbor of the High Arctic, Whitehorse  and Ashanak in Yukon Territory; Fort  Smith and Fort Reliance in the Northwest Territories again, then briefly ..in  Ottawa and Calgary and- again north:  Norman Wells, NWT, Smith River on the  Alaska Highway, Resolute again and now  Frobisher. '"*',-  He is a licensed pilot. He builds his  own stereo sets. He has taken a couple  of thousands photographs of the north.  He says he has no intention of ever coming to the south ��� by which he means  not the tropics in which he was born and  raised but such places as Ottawa where,  on the night of our conversation a blizzard  was- turning everything into a howling  white confusion;  In April or May this year he is to  marry a girl, also from Kerala, India,  who is now a university professor and  who has never seen the Arctic, They  will marry in Ottawa by tho Hindu rites,  probably in the Unitarian Church on  Algonquin Street. "I have no religion,  but I attend the Unitarian Church.")  ** rtI have told her all the worst things  nbout life in the Arctic and I have said  ���That is where I am going to be and  that is where I am going to .stay'."  While we wore talking u visitor dropped into my office ��� Lloyd Francis, ono  of tho members of parliament for Ot-  tawu city. We broke open a bottle of tea,  which is a good old northern remedy  for blizzards, ond Lloyd put the question  that I had not,  "What's ko great about the Arctic?"  Well, there was challenge, sold Ron.  And there was unspoiled beauty ��� there  wu.i no air in the south ho fresh as he  breathed. "But I admit there are only  two feelings about the Arctic.

Governments at both levels are now  adopting^*' realistic  approach to  this  pnrtjtkflaT\prnhlem   hilt   without   doiibt  would not have done so without a little  prodding here and there. Therefore it  is fairly obvious the protests raised by  such responsible groups as Rod arid  " tin Clubs have had the desired affect.  What has becrTsadly overlooked, in  the shuffle is the fact that while most of ,  the protests have involved pollution by  sewage, industrial pollution and, in some  cases, protests by those who figure we  can survive without industrial Or commercial enterprises, a much more undesirable form of pollution passes^unnoticed.  This is the litter and debris left in  the wake of people who are too ignorant  to seek a refuse container as they unwrap cigarette and candy while stolling  down our streets or drive along the high-  *way. It is a comparatively simple matter to retain paper wrapping or cigarette  packets until it is possible to dispose of  in- an intelligent matter, but no, this is  never given a thought for it is too easy  The result is, some of our sidewalks  and boulevards are a disgrace. They arc  an eyesore and a reflection upon human  nature as a whole.  - The pntario Highways Department  expended $700,000 last year in order to  remove broken glass, cigarette packages,  waste paper. and other junk frpm. its  highways and roads.

It is somewhat confusing to observe some of those  who cry loudest, puffing away at cigarettes, pipes or cigars. Others will think  nothing of throwing a beer bottle into  the bush orr on the rocks where it  smashes and_ present a hazard.  To quote one writer; No creature  fouls its habitat more.than man.,It seems  that-ntrAv, Especially with the new throw-  away bottles and cans and atlother disposable wonders of our technology, it is  time to educate and enforce against littering. For if w<s fail tp do this, the outdoors and the city streets will become a  pigsty.  JOMEJHING new in the way of autonomy has been offered Directors of  the Sunshine Coast Regional District and  if a ruling by the newly appointed Chairman is to be accepted, then individual  directors become powers unto themselves.  What appears to be an extremely  unhealthy situation has arisen, and one  very far removed from the general concept of a Regional District. That is a  policy the chairman claims to have been  established whereby any director is free  to act on his own oh an issue which does  not involve the Board as a whole.  The answer to that is "hogwash" and  it is extremely 'doubtful if the Department  of Municipal Affairs would tolerate such  a dictatorial attitude which, in effect,  permits a director to take up an issue  and register protest or approval to a  governmental department without first  taking the matter "to the Board. Such  a proposal would mean each of the eight  electoral areas within the Regional District would have its,own director who is  free to act as a one man Board, providing,  of course, the matter involved is riot a  function of the main Regional Board.  A very cozy situation indeed particularly  for those with a desire for power.  Chairman Cliff Gilker stated he sees  no reason why this should not be, "councils in Gibsons and Sechelt might not  permit it but I know it is done elsewhere", he said.  Wc do not question the right of an  Alderman, Trustee or Director to write  letters on behalf of his area or community but ethics would demand that he,  or she, make clear the fact they arc NOT  writing on behalf of the Board or Council  as a whole, or indeed would it be ethical  even to imply such a thing.  The School Act clearly states; "The  rights, powers, duties and, liabilities of  , a Board of School Trustees rest ONLY  with the legally constituted. Board and  NOT with committees of trustees or individual trustees.  The Municipal Act relating to councils and municipalities and referring rjo  powers of Mayors states; He shall  establish standing commiMccs for any  purposes which he considers would be  better ^regulated and managed by such  committees, and appoint members of Ihe  council thereto; HUT the proceedings of  nil such committees shall be subject to  the approval bf the Council, save in .so  far as such proceedings may be in  pursuance of any authority delegated to  such committees or any one of (hem  under subsection (2) of section 181.  This section states; Council may, by  bylaw adopted by an affirmative vote of  at least two thirds of all the members  thereof, delegate authority to a standing  committee established under section 179,  with such restrictions or conditions as arc  specified in Ihe bylaw, to exercise any of  the executive or administrative powers of  Hit   IglUlH  the council.  Elsewhere the Municipal Act makes  clear the fact that apart from Letters  Patent and where otherwise provided, a  Regional Board or Regional District is  to be considered as if it were a District  Municipality.  To clarify the situation even further,  a phone call,to the Department of Municipal Affairs revealed the fact thai not  only does a councillor, trustee or director  NOT have powers to act on his own, 'but  neither does a Mayor or Chairman. Certainly any one is free to write stating  he is one or other of these elected  representatives, but has no right to say,  or imply, that he is writing or acting on  behalf of the Board or Council.  We-would suggest, an act of this nature would not only be unethical it could  even provide grounds for a charge of  malfeasance.  Fletchers Philosophy  ���Harry W.

C. van Schulk  of tho Cumuli. Afnlculturo no.waich Station at LHl.bridtfo.  Ho fools some statistIch have boon  used only for shock value, not to Inform  the public.  Sad commentary  Editor, The" Time's,  Sir, It is a sad commentary on the  administration of, the Regional Boaid  when unethical and illegal (sec.' 179 &  181 of Municipal Act) use of Board  stationery is not only allowed but even  endorsed as official Board policy,. What  matter of minds can rationalize the contravention of Provincial Municipal Law ��  and complete disregard for administrative  ethics and "procedure. If the Board carries on (its .pther business in such an irresponsible manner we indeed have cause  for serious concern.  . The .letter in question was the one  written by Mr. Frank West to the P.U.C.  regarding the Village of Gibsons proposed  sewage treatment facilities and its outfall at Gower Point. While written on  Board stationery it was solely upon his  own .initiative that it was sent. He had  no direction- whatever from the Board  to do so. ;   _  Now the Board has not Only condoned  Mr. West's action but made it official policy in the future. What possible control  can the electorate be guaranteed when  under such a policy, a copy need not  even be on file?  The subject of Mr.. West's letter, can  lain a little more sympathy. However the  Village- is planningon a- second ��� stage-  treatment facility. This is more than  "adequate' temporarily; and in any event,  all the Village can afford' without financial assistance from Senior Governments.  Mr. West might be better to direct  his admirable pollution control attitude  at far more serious, of fenders. \Vhjle the  Village of Gibsons is installing a realistically -.naj.imum treatment facility, the St.  Mary's Hospital effluent line is dumping  crudely treated sewage directly into the  bay. Their, effluent line is at such a low  tide level that it permits sewage to  bubble <to the surface. Mr. West isf a member of the Hospital Board.  Mr. West is also a high ranking staff  employee at Port Mellon. Now there is  a pollutant source about which Jto. be  greatly concerned. Mr. West denies this  fact, no doubt due to his proximity to the  hand that feeds.  Mr. West's concern over the proposed  Gower Point outfall arises mainly because that is where he resides. It may not  have occurred to Mr. West that there aire  nearly as many homes along that waterfront as there are oh Gibsons proposed  sewer system. The difference is Gibsons  sewage will be well treated while all  those homes out his way dump their untreated, filthy effluent directly in the  water.  We welcome, bold initiatives from our  elected representatives and their official  bodies. But let '������ lis' .please have them  tempered with a little more rationality,  maturity and above all, responsibility.  Michael A- Blaney  First step  Editor, The. Times,      .    . .  Sir: "Drop-in" .discussion organized at  Pender Harbour Elementary School oh  February 3 jointly by the .PTA, the Stu- ���  dent's Council and,the School Board was  for m,e one of the most inspiring, interesting and beneficial meetings I have ever  attended. In view of what was accomplished, let us hope it will be" just a first  step in the effort to bridge the generation  gap by closer understanding and co-operation. ���  After accompanying the Pender Harbour basket-ball team to Squamish for  their game last weekend, I have no hesitation in saying that we Can be very  proud of our teenagers and they undoubtedly deserve more credit than has sofrie-  times been given to them in.the past!  MARY KINGSTON (Mrs.)  President, Pender Harbour PTA  Not an orgy  Editor, The Times,  Sir: As one who attended the dance,  Sat. Jan. 24 at  Elphinstone Auditorium, '  I wish to tell you what 1 saw.concerning  that dance.  In my estimation, "hippie types" made  up about 40 per cent of the people there.  Tho remaining ffo per cent were the  ".straight, short haired, people". I consider the RCMP officer's estimate of 75 per  cent "hippies" far out of lino.  There was chinking and marijuana  smoking, although.at no time was there  any trouble that I could .we, inside the  donee,  1 saw no couples lying about tho floor  in ".stage,*, of undress", but there wore  couples sitting on the perimeter of the  auditorium nnd in tho bleachers quietly.  These people acted very 'well and both-"  r*rc*rt no-one, Tho only people "who were  "in stages of undress" were two young  male "hippies" who were bare from the  waist up, 1 don't know why, because their  physiques left something to he desired, If  it. was done for tho sake of young women  at the dance,  I didn't see the spotlight phone on the  RCMP officer although there were lights  In live back of the nudltorlum used as  part of tho "light show."  Ynu didn't state In your article what  type of "orgy: the .Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce expressed Concern over, but 1  must insist that the. dance was not a sex  orgy, a, drinking orgy or ti^dopo fiend-  orgy. The majority of the .people there were  enjoying themselves and acting their ages,  only,;.a small minority, as usual we're engaging" in dope smoking, drinking and  making fools of themselves.  I hope you will realize that most of the  young people in this area resent the fact  that you did not give them a chance to  tell the public their side of the story be-  " fore your article was published. I feel'  that people on certain boards and organizations throughout the district may now  have biased and preconceived ideas of  young peoples dances and may take steps  to stop future ones from taking place.  There is little for young people to do  in the area in the way of dances, and social functions ahd it would be a shame to  see all dances stopped because of your  poorly reported article, combined with the  antic? of a minority of people who. always^  manage to spoil Jhings forthe majority.  _ Hoping_.you_ \yjll__come out in support  "of the majority of young "people and hear  our side of the story, I remain,  LYLE G. DAVEY  Gibsons, BC  Editor's comment: It is quite true the  trouble makers, radicals and pot smokers  form but a minority and we quite agree  that by far the majority of young people  are responsible. Most adults realize this  liut unfortunately the rabble have the sad  .habit of making a lot of noise. As interference by we squares of society appears  to be strongly resented by youth of today,  then we would suggest responsibility ffcr  house cleaning rests solely upon their  able young shoulders.
