 ^ki^^^y^^'' ~"T '  fiepcir damage .  West Canadian Graphic Industries rLtd.��  1606 Best 5tB Ave., i,  Vancouver 9�� B.C.  FEB 27 REM  COST of two hundred or so dollars a year  " to maintain the Hackett Park building  after vandals complete their work was  considered much more realistic than expenditure of bstween six and seven thousand dollars for caretaker's quarters. This  was the verdict of Alderman Norm Watson who was supported by Mayor Swain  at last meeting of Sechelt council.  Aid. George Flay had previously  brought up the matter, of the building  which has been' closed down since wash  basins,, windows and other. fittings had  been smashed by vandalism last year. He  suggested consideration be given to establishing living quarters above the -building to be used by a caretaker. It was subsequently moved that he obtain prices for  such a project.  Taking into account the fact founda-  gs. tions, plumbing, etc. are already in the  park building, he had been quoted a  price of between ten and eleven: dollars  per square foot. Total price would be a-  bout seven thousand dollars...  Mayor Swain said he considered the  price to be "real cheap" but although the  idea is an excellent one he cannot see expenditure of that amount in order to protect a building which cost only five thousand dollars.  . Aid. Watson asked what cost of main  tenance is annually and was told about  two hundred dollars.  Aid. Flay pointed out that at present"  the building is useless- and will remain so  until fix!-d up. Aid. Watson commented  "fix it up then"-. Aid. Flay replied "that  is about to be done".  Aid. Joe Benner drew attention to the  fact a storage building, presently under  construc.isn on village property near  Hackct Park, should have been given  closer consideration originally. He said,  had the building been constructed above"  and extended over the park building it  could have been put to use as living quarters and provided storage place for villagf  equipment.  "The"1 cost would have been    jail. They were also put on probation for a  little more than the storage building will    period of two years.  tl��.i./rii dl.nl  Serving tho Sunshine Coost, (Howe Sound to Jervis Inlet), including Port Mellon^ Hopkins Landing, Granthams Landing, Gibsons, Roberts Creek,  Wilson Creek, Selmo Pork, Sechelt, Halfrnoo" Boy, Secret Cove.

Aid. Watson said he would doubt, this.  Ald.Benner retorted "I know-so" and was  supported by Aid.' Flay who said he had  also spoken to a builder who agreed with  Aid. Benner.  BACK STOP  Aid. Flay; on learning he has a budget  of $2,000 for paries and recreation, said he  would like approval for a new back stop  at the Park. Cost would-.normally be a-  bout $1.500 but .two service clubs have; in-  dicateu readines to hold' work parties.  This would bring cost down to about $900.  On a motion by Aid.

Charge arose following a three car  mishap last December.  Sechelt progress .... .

SOCIAL NIGHT     ..  Roberts Creek Legion Branch 219 will  be holding a social evening every last  Saturday in the month in the Legion Hall  at Roberts Creek where bingo, dancing;  whist; cribbage or other activities may  be enjoyed.  POSTPONEMENT  Meeting of the Sunshine Coast Environment Protection Society scheduled  for -March 6th has been postponed to  April 3rd:   :��� ..������.-.;;.....;:,......  Dr. J. Haddock and Dr. J. Kimmins,  Faculty of Forest, UBC, have agreed to  this date at which time forestry problems  will be discussed.  fed  COUNCIL of Sechelt last week paved  the way for further progress of the  village by rezoning from residential to  commercial a property on Cowrie Street,  thus permitting a local businessman  proceed with plans for what is belie  to be a shopping mail.  Mr. Richard Clayton told council he  could proceed without the/rezoning for  he could still put the property to use as  a parking area whether rezoned or not.  At the same time.>fis proposed construction could be made much more attractive  with, an extr^-vwenty or so feet on which  to build.  Ald/Norm Watson said he is all in  favour of progress providing it is compatible with the village. He said he realizes '  it is impossible to please everyone but in  this particular case the objections previously raised could be rendered invalid.  -Main objection, he pointed out, was  the fact that adjacent residents did not  Wish to see cars parked in front of their  properties. Aid. Watson explained that  if the area in question should be cleared  at this time the residents would be looking  at   stumps,  garbage   etc.   Therefore.  No such power . . .  Gibsons  actions oi  [ayot nails down  Regional Board  MAYOR Wally Peterson, at last meeting  of Gibsons Village Council, substantiated an earlier Times editorial which  stated that no Regional Director has authority to act on his own on an issue  without first bringing it before the  Board as a whole for approval.  Considerable controversy followed  letters from a director to the Pollution  Control Board which, it has been claimed,  indicated he was acting as a Regional  Board Director, thus implying he wns  acting on behalf of the Board. First let- ,  tor was, in fact, written on Regional  Board stationary. Both were in relation  to the proposed Gibsons sewer outfall to  which Director F. West, bus mntle abundantly bis opposition.  At a recent meeting of the Regional  Board n protest nt West's actions was  mode by Mayor Peterson but 'Chairman  Cliff Gilker stated a policy hud been  previously sot up permitting individual  action by directors. Further, he could  nee nothing wrong in tho situation and  even though councils of Gibsons and  Sechelt do not 'operate in this way it is  done elsewhere.  At council lust week, Mayor Peterson said he ar*,d Administrator Dave  Johnston had visited the Department ot  Municipal Affairs and discussed the mat-  tor with the Deputy Minister' Mr, Jim  Ilnlrcl, who hud Mated no Director has  such powers. Indeed, he hud never over  heard of sui'h a thing being done before.  "The director definitely had no right  acting on It In any way with sewage being set up as ti function," stated Hi*.  Hnlrd.  Latest action In the dispute has been  a .series of letters between the Hoard,  Council and Pollution Control Hoard.  This, said the Mayor, bus also been done  without approval of the Hoard, "It was  agreed to set up a committee to Investigate and In turn repeat bark to the Hoard.  Mr. West, of course, was made chairman  of that committee.  "Il would now nppear lhal even this  wns wrong beciuiM* sewage Is not a function of the Hoard, Further. It seeeins, Mr.  West li�� working with Mr. Gooding and  getting him to write these letters on behalf of the HoiikI,"  A   letter    from    Ihe   ltcgloi.ul   Hoard  asked that council submit further details  uf their plans  but   Mayor  Peterson   said  "they have been given all the information  -we   have,   liiehidii.K   plan"   <>'   a   sewage  treatment   plant   similar   In   tin*   one   we  Install. They keep mentioning  raw new-  age.   I   would   think   this   is   berau'c   l��  sounds duty, yet at no time have we said  anything about  raw  sewage,"  Aid. Ken (lodilnrd commented that  council has nevei bud any plans other  than to install a treatment plant.  Aid, Charles Mandelkau said: "I  notice this man asked the Mayor three  times whether it is intended to dump  raw sewage into the sea and each time  he was told no. This is tantamount to  not wanting the facts." He suggested  the Board be notified further information  will be made available when council has  it and that it is understood sewage is,  as yet, not n function of the Board. He  added "perhaps we should ask for their  definition of raw sewage".  A letter from another Gower Point  resident, writer Raymond Hull, drew  attention to a section of the Municipal  Act which indicated n treatment plant  might not be Installed for up to three  years after the sewer line is in. This be  would be prepared to protest. He pointed  out, however, that he is not in any way  hostile to council. Similar letter from  Mr. Hull appears In this week's  Times.  Council suggested Mr, Hull he assured  that no sewage will go through the lines  until a treatment plant has been constructed. It was also suggested he be  thanked for his letter which was generally acknowledged to be very sincere.  Alderman Ken Crosby reported that  at a recent meeting of the Gibsons  Chumber of Commerce it was agreed to  give  full  backing to  the  sewer project,  clearing/up of the property will be an  improvement and providing. Mr. Clayton  is/prepared to put up a buffer such as .  neat hedge, even the cars on the park- j  ing lot will be obscured. As far as park-1  ing along the highway is concerned, the*.  new parking area will probably help the  situation.  "We must bare in mind the fact that  the area will be used anyway for parking,  and if by approving rezoning we will be  permitting a better lay-out of the building project, then I would move we approve," he added.  Mayor Bill Swain said that he too  could see nothing wrong with the proposal and had no doubt the developer  would agree to the hedge.  Mr. Clayton said he is as much interested in keeping the village beautiful as  anyone and would be quite happy to  prepare plans to include a buffer; hedge  which will be submitted to '-council "lot''  approval.  Parking space for between ninety and '  one  hundred  cars   is  planned   and. the  whole area will be paved.'  . BOO-BOO MADE  Something of a fantastic situation  was created some years ago by past  council and Aid. George Flay expressed  the view that if the council of that time  had been responsible for making a "boo-  boo" he sees no reason why the present  council should not rectify the matter.  It appears the area including site of  the old Union store, the present theatre  and salal plant and Calypso Dining Room  is so zoned that while commercial at  present, closure of cither or all existing  busincss's would mean the property automatically becomes residential, thus restricting  new  commercial    development.  The clerk explained that at the time  zoning was instituted, council acted on  the advise of provincial planners and  left the area residential even though  occupied by commercial undertaking, This  was In 1057, he said. Mayor Swain agreed  'with Aid. Joe Benner that the present  property owners were obviously under  the impression they were in a commercial  zone and said he could not sec why it  should not be rezoned to commercial.  Aid. Benner suggested the necessary  steps be taken to rczonc but Mr. Rayner  expressed the view that it is not too important and should be given much more  thought first. He said the original idea  was to keep high buildings from the  waterfront..  Mayor Swain asked, "would we be  prepared to turn down a half million  dollar hotel complex if the opportunity  arose?"  It was moved the matter be left for  further action at  next  regular  meeting,  Community Concern  .Members of Selma Park Community  Association met with M.L;A. and  Minister without portfolio, Hon. Isabel Dawson on Saturday to voice  concern over the proposed gravel  loading outlet in Trail Bay which  they feel will not only spoil the scenic  beauty but create noise and water  seepage from: man-made gravel-  washing lakes.

Anyone who is interested in the pro--  posed" Sunshine Coast recreation Centre is  invited" to attend to hear Dr.; John Crosby,  \who has agreed to come and explain the  , committees plans on this project. .".''���  There will be a brief question and ans-  ��� wer, period and Dr. Crosby will try and  answer  any questions  you  might  have.  Since .this sports centre is for the whole  area, as well as others, it would be a good  idea lo come .out, give Dr. Crosby your  support  and show  some interest in "this  worthwhile proposal.  Meets with MLA  MEETING with Selma Park Community  Association on Saturday morning, Minister without Portfolio, Hon. Isabel Dawson gave assurance that she will recommend that Department of Lands, Forests  and Water Resources forestalls any decision on gravel mining operation in the  area until Sunshine Coast Regional Board  has completed its zoning recommendations.  Taking time out from mid-session  meeting of the Legislature to meet with  residents concerned over" proposed barge  loading facilities in Trail Bay, Mrs. Dawson stated that the whole project is subject to the RegionalTBoard giving favourable approval and the Department of  Lands could not proceed without this  approval. She also stated that no terms  have been negotiated as yet and even if  the Regional Board gives approval, final  development plans" must be approved by  Department of Lands.  Mrs, Dawson also stated that ho plans  had been received and no lease has been  approved by Department of Lands.  LARGE DEPOSIT  Pointing out the need for a secondary  industry in the area, Mrs. Dawson wishes  to settle the matter in the best interest  of the Peninsula as a whole, hoping to  18 months indeiinite  Iilrolil |ii f ��  llilf  aKSPl  CHRISTOPHER Julian of the Sechelt  Reserve appeared before Judge Charles  Mittelsteadt last Wednesday February  18th and was sentenced to six months  definite and eighteen months indefinite  on u charge of unlawful possession of  a firearm, For pointing a firearm at  police he was sentenced to three months  definite and six months indefinite.

Shortly after using up his ammunition he surrendered to the officers.

A large  are has been reserved for gravel exploration and a smaller area on Lot 2372 is  subject to application for a gravel quarry  lease. In reply to questions Mrs. Dawson  said that Provincial Government engineers have said that the deposit is the best  grade gravel for construction purposes  on the coast and is close to major, centres.  New mining regulations ensure restoration of the mined area and convertion  to a recreation area. She felt there is  some justification in the development if -~  at the same time our shores and beaches  can be maintained with no pollution  problem.  Mrs. Dawson assured the 50-60 people  present that she is working for the people  and not for any gravel mining company.  She wanted suggestions and wanted, to r  hear complaints so that they can be voiced  in Victoria.  COMPLAINTS  Chairman of the Association Mr. H.  Slade expressed appreciation to the  Honourable Minister for taking time out  from a busy schedule when the Legislature is sitting.  He stated that there was no animousity  towards the gravel operation just the outlet, for people had settled in Selma Park  for the scenic beauty and tranquility.  They preferred to see the green country  side and the sea rather than piling and  barges.  It had been learned that a very large  company, namely Ocean Cement had  taken over Construction Aggregates and  Mr. Slade felt that a tremendous market  will be developed and the Provincial  Government would be interested in  revenue,  Mr. Slade said the Community Association takes exception to the gravel  being conveyed via underground tunnel  to the waterfront, lie believes this will  be a silent operation but no mention has  been made of the noise resulting from  loading the barges with gravel or tho  loading facilities 000 feet from the foreshore, This is tho vital issue he said as  it is likely to Ik; in operation for some  time if it is to be a 35 year operation.  Commenting   on   the   recent   meeting  with the Regional Hoard. Mr, Slado said  delegates went received in a kindly and  patient manner and the Hoard had promised to keep in touch regarding  latest  developments. It had now been discovered that on January 20th a lot on the point  at Selma Park had been registered in the  name   or  Construction   Aggregates,  "   Another    Selma     Park   resident   Mr.  Lurry Grafton said that  he had  learned  from   Construction    Aggregates t,*ngiiui')\  Mr. Ross that Selma Park was tho second /  choice for the gravel outlet  If the coin-"  puny failed to reach an agreement for the  one ,ou* the Indian Heserve land,  Many people felt that a company  should not be allowed to disrupt a residential area when there'is" an alternate  route through unorganl/ed land, It was  suggested that Port Mellon, already established as an Industrial area could be  used as an outlet, or the Wilson Creek  area where logging operation make it an  Industrial urea. <*"  ZONING  Selma Park Regional Hoard director  Harvey llubb.s* confirmed that the Regional Hoard Is working on n /onlni; bylaw anil assured residents' that public  heiuingit must be held before any final  decision Is reached.

To give parents an idea of the function of a nursery school, the following  article has been released from the publicity chairman:"^ * *  A co-operative nursery school is group  owned and operated by the parents, offering educational and creative activities  for children aged 3 to 5 years old.  The group employs a competent teacher who not only directs the children's  programs but trams mothers to become  assistants. Besides providing a variety of  play materials and playmates in the same  age group, the child benefits by learning  to use his body effectively; express himself imaginatively; cope with his own  feelings; solve problems; satisfies his  curiosity and get along with others. The  programme satisfies the child's physical;  intellectual; social and emotional needs.  The family benefits for both child  and parents share in the growth experi  ence. A- desirable chUd-parent-teacher  relationship is established. Mothers arc  provided with a worthwhile community  activity. The cost is lower compared  with a private school.-The child's emotional dependence on his parents is lessened.  Parents will be disappointed if they  Expect the child to: Say his A.B.C.'s learn  his 1, 2, 3's; Recite poetries; perform and  please bring home daily art-tis-trees. But  they will be pleased to find that he can:  explore and run; share his fun, finish"  what's begun; put away when done; demand less "all or none"; restrict his "no";  let mother go and accept what's so.        B ���  Anyone from the Sechelt-Port Mellon  area wishing to register children in the  Jack and Jill Nursery School at Gibsons;  commencing next September may phone  Mrs. Verna Simm at 886-7276. For transportation from Sechelt, phone Mrs. G.  Foxall  ot 885-9440.  Wednesday, February 2  The Peninsula Times Page A-3 Sea-scapes     Breathtaking views which abound in  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  SUNSHINE and fine photography combine to create a particularly colourful  program at the Welcome Beach Hall on  Thursday, February 2Cth at 7:30 p.m.  "Hawaii, Pacific Paradise" focuses on  the uncommercialized islands of Molokai,  Kauai, etc. rather than the Honolulu  tourist area.

A film  of the 1965 Calgary Stampede completes  a particularly attractive program^ which is  offered by courtesy of Air Canada.

It is hoped thaj the teenagers of Pender  Harbour can make a good stab at trying  to find some recreation for themselves  and the Coffee House is one idea. The  teenagers can go to the Coffee House,  which is being held hopefully every second Friday night in the Hall. There  will be a variety of things to do; dance,  play ping pong, or play pool when the  poll tables are brought.  Another club has started up and this  is  P.H.Y.A.C.A.   It  is  a  group of  teenagers  who will  be   putting  on   dances  once a month and shows once a month.  The Club has tried* to make a go of it  for  the last two years  and we hope  it  will be a success this year. The President,  Carolyn   Edwardson,   is   a   person   with  many ideas and  it is hoped that many  of   these  will   be  put   into  action.   The  first dance  is  planned  for   the  28th  of  February and the band that will be possibly  playing  is  tho  Missing  Link.  We  nope  every   one   at   the  dance    enjoys  themselves and hope to sec you all there.

However, due to  our late start. I suppose, we lost with  the score 18-17 for Squamish. After that  game our senior boys played Squamish.  They failed to capitalize on a score of  free throw opportunities. The shooting  generally was poor. We lost 31-49. To  round off the evening, Squamish put on  a dance. Their band was made up of  some grade 10 boys.  Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m., Pender's senior girls played Squamish. We  lost however, due to the fact the shooting was poor. Final score-was 40-6 for  Squamish. Then, our senior boys played  Elphinstone. Elphie was out of practice.  We won that game 35-22 with some improved shooting. Our junior second stringers then played Squamish. It was a special  exhibition which ended in a 4-4 tie. It  was a fabulous moral victory for us.  Next Pender's senior girls played  Pemberton. However, due to superior  shooting for Pemberton, wc once again  lost with the final score 35-12 for Pemberton.  Then came our senior boy's last  chance to reach the-finals. They played  a replay against Squamish. In the first  half, the score was 20-15 for us. After  that our hoys' shooting fell apart and  we lost 34-26 for Squamish, Tired from  our exuberance, wo , came home.  Next week, we will he playing basketball at Elphinstone, We will have the  results in a couple of weeks from now.  Next time we will have a write up on  the junor boys basketball team.  Around B.C.  ��       ���-by Edgar Dunning  from his CBC Neighborly News  broadcast Sundays 8:30 a.ni.  YOU KNOW, I haven't had any news recently about unidentified flying, objects or flying-saucers. So the reports that  appeared in the Cowichan Leader about  recerrt sightings around Duncan are of interest. First, on New Year's Day, Mrs.  Doreen Kendall, a registered nurse at  Cowichan District Hospital, saw what she  described as the most unnerving sight she  has ever experienced. What she saw  about 5 a.m. was a brilliantly lighted  circular object with a glass dome, which  was stationary in the air about 60 feet  from the hospital and above the second  floor where she was working.  She said she was so taken aback by  ' the thing that she didn't call anyone and  stood for several minutes watching it before she called another nurse, Mrs. Fred  Wilson. Mrs. Kendall said she could see  inside, two human-like creatures about  six feet tall. Their faces were covered  and they wore dark suits.  She told the reporter that the vehicle  made no sound, and she finally called  Mrs. Wilson to come and lodk. Five other  nurses ran to the window to watch as the  craft slowly pulled away and disappeared  in the direction of Victoria.  Then Vern Stanley-Jones, who is considered to be an expert on UFOs, told the  paper that he and his wife and several  other people saw a large bright yellow  craft cruising over the Maple Bay and  Crofton areas on January 6. Mr. and Mrs.  Stanley-Jones "watched the object for  about eight minutes after stopping their  car and turning out the lights. Mr.r Stanley-Jones said the UFO was from 500 to  1000 feet off the ground, and was the  biggest thing he'd ever seen. It made no .  sound as it moved slowly over the countryside.  Mr. and Mrs. Arthur LeQuesne of Maple Bay saw something similar about 8:30  the same night. Mrs. LeQuesne thought  it was someone trying to be funny and-  said she wouldn't believe in UFOs^if one  landed in front of her.  Others in the Duncan area who also  sighted the object Ihe same night were  Mrs. Kay Clinehens and Mrs. Fran Merrill.     ' '  It was interesting to find that not all  the editors in the province are in agreement about the new laws that came into  effect at the beginning of the year dealing  with drinking and driving. Here's part  of what the editor of the Chilliwack Progress had to say about it:  '"The main effect of the new regulations is to make it mandatory for a driver  to take a breathalyzer test upon the request of a police officer. This law is  tough. But Ottawa has decided there is  no alternative.  "In 1967 records of the RCMP revealed that 43 per cent of the accidents on  Canada's highways were directly related  to the use of alcohol. In 1968 the figure  rose to 45 per cent. **  "In this province 574 persons were  killed in traffic accidents in 1968. Police  say more than half of them were victims  of accidents involving drivers who had  been drinking. K  '���Every person who^drives must face  up to the implications of our highway  accident problem, and of the tough new  law brought into iorce.

If you drive, don't drink."  But the editor of the Cariboo Observer, while agreeing that the new law is  probably the most sensible move in the  fight to keep the drinking driver off the  road, thought that it threatens the basic  rights of (Canadians. Here's how he put it:  "Nobody could possibly argue the te,st  will not prove effective in scaring the  drinking driver. But that's not the point.  The point is simply this: under British  law a man is not required to give testimony against himself. Basically, Canadian law is British law, and making a  person take a breathalyzer test would appear to strike at our very constitution.  "We should not condemn the idea behind the new laWj. but we should look at  it very carefully and ask ourselves if we  are prepared to accept Prime Minister  Trudeau's 'Just Society* if it means a  gradual erosion of our basic rights.  "Wouldn't it have been better to wait  until the federal and provincial governments decided whether or not Canada  needed a new constitution before making  a mockery of the old one?"  Well, Jthere won't be any more rock  festivals in Langley Municipality, such as  the sliow that was staged last year at Aldergrove Lake. _ The Langley Advance  says that the municipal clerk of Langley,  D. J. Doubleday, has been ordered by  municipal council to draft a bylaw ihat  will prevent the festivals being held in  future. The clerk replied that he already  had such a bylaw half written.  The festival last year was held in the  park controlled by the regional park authority which has now moved to limit  the total number of people who can use  the park at any one time. However, the  Langley aldermen are concerned that promoters of such events could lease a farm  , for their shows.

Latest political gaffe of the Queen's  first minister is reported from a meeting  of the Canadian Student Liberal Conference held in Ottawa. At that meeting  he rejected a suggestion that federal aid  should be made available to wheat farmers of the prairies and said he did not  consider them to be poor. To support  this he said on a visit to the west he had  seen them riding $20,000 tractors and  speculated they probably owned land  costing^lOO.000 to $200,000. Why not give  any rjioney available to the shiall grocer  in bis riding who was being forced out  of /business by the supermarkets.  These remarks were the equal in political finesse to brie he made on that same  trip to the west. .  "Why should I sell your wheat?" he  asked.  The prime minister could hardly have  said anything more abrasive had he deliberately set out-4o-inercase-tbe-alienation--  the  west already feels  for the ��� federal  government.  There   is  little  doubt   the  alienation is there, and growing. Gil M61- .  gat, former leader of the Liberal Party  in Manitoba who attended the student  conference expressed it. So have a number oLbitckbenchers in. the house of com^  mons. Senator Donald Cameron of Banff  has- said the Liberal party cannot hope^  to elect a member west of the Lakehead  (now Thunder Bay) unless things change  drastically before the next election.  These opinions cannot be put down  to political partisanship.  Trudeau has the largest personal staff  ever gathered by a Canadian prime minister. It is presumed they are experts in  political and legislative analysis. One of  the first divisions within that group is  what is known as the "western desk"  whose job is to determine which way the  political winds are blowing across the  prairies and to recommend measures to  meet the needs. Studies of this desk  must inevitably be bound up in the study  of agriculture.  It is hard to believe these advisors  are responsible for the prime minister's  attitudes��� they cannot be described as  outbursts ��� for Trudeau is not given to  displaying excessive emotion white engaging in * repartee. To the contrary his  utterances appear to be given with cool  calculation.  The prime minister has-been charged  on many an occasion with having a legalistic and academic approach to the job  of government. Judy LaMarsh who held  the portfolios of health and welfare and  secretary of state in the Pearson ministry has called him heartless ��� but then  he was never one of her favourites.  In consideration of the prime minister's latest commentary, the question  arises ��� what is poor? Ordinaly a man  with assets of up to a quarter million  dollars is not regarded so. It is doubtful  if the average prairie farmer has that  much equity in his land and tractors,  but should it so happen, it is not to say  he has any available money. He is in the  same position as the owner of a factory  with a big inventory but no market. The  difference is that while the factory owner  can chase sales as an individual the prairie  wheat grower cannot. The latters' fate  is bound to successes of the wheat board  which in turn gets some aid from government" and reports to Hon. Otto Lang the  minister without portfolio from Saska-  toon-Humboldt.  Cash position of the western wheat  grower is bad. This is reflected in the  drastic drop in retail sales across the  prairies in the last few months as reported by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics. His lot is not likely to improve  through 1970 without help of some kind.  In the first place it appears he will not  get a final payment of wheat sales made  in the last crop year due to the drop in  world prices which had to be met if; any  Canadian grain was to move at all.  Present carry-over of grain is close  to 1,5 billion bushels. Prospects for the  export market in the year is sales of about  a half billion* bushels. Last year the crop  was in the neighbourhood of 050 million bushels. Elementary arithmetic leads  to the conclusion there will be nn additional carry-over of 150 million bushels,  granted the' same acrenge seeded and  good growing weather.  Lang has taken note of this, and has  urged farmers not to grow wheat this  year. Ills hope is that production will be  drastically cut. But there has been no  suggestion what they should do In the  alternative, Conversion to livestock is  not any easy prospect, That would need  time, money and know-how none of which  the western dry-land farmer can claim.  Even If he could be would bo hard-put  fro find the calves and feeder cattle necessary  to establish n herd,  Advance- payment for grain stored on  farms and for wheat still unthrashed In  the fields has benefited tho farmer to  the extent of giving him some immediate  cash but isn't n final solution to tho  problem.  Trudeau nhould take another academic  look at the question of how long It takes  for a man wllh $200,000 worth of land  and a $20,000 tractor to become poor  when ho can find nothing to do with  I hem.  /L  I\  ^fo)  Cominercicii Printing  w times  \.  yaVr*.

To a second charge of being in possession of liquor while under age of  twenty-one, Cragg entered a guilty plea  and was fined an additional $25. He was  given fourteen days to pay the two  amounts.  FOUR COUNTS  Dennis Warren Smith aged twenty  entered a plea of guilty to four charges,  three involving break entry and theft and  one of intent to mislead.  Offences occurred between the 1st  and 3Uth of January in the Halfmoon  Bay area and involved three homes  which were entered and robbed. A  fourth, resided in by Smith, had been  messed up to create the impression that  it too had been broken into and robbed.  A variety of items had been stolen  and included, in part, two hand-guns,  radios, ammunition, coloured coffee  mugs, coloured glasses, money etc. Most  of the goods were later recovered but  ���a TV set also reported missing has yet  'tb.be found. In a statement to police,  Smith claimed to have had two others  with him on two of the robberies but  denied knowledge of the television set  and refused to name his accomplices. He  admitted taking his own house in order  to throw suspicion off himself regarding  a robbery of his neighbour's home.  Police told the court the guns had  been recovered through the Vancouver  City police and Smith had stated he had  expected to sell them to a fence for $325  with which he planned to marry. The  accused is also on parole for a previous  offence  elsewhere.  Pending a pre-sentence report: he  was remanded'do custody to March 4th.

Now the most  beautiful bay in the district is undergoing a change, a new   wharf  has  been built by the Federal Government and waterfront property is be-  "ing subdivided. A private interest  obviously has great plans for the*  area which could easily be the one  of the most popular tourist centres  on the Peninsulua.  What is education?  IDEA behind Education week, is of  course to focus attention on our schools  and to encourage us to take a greater year  round interest in the learning process in  our own communities.  What better time to pay tribute to a  section of our school community whose  job when well done contributes in no  small way to the quality of education in  this district. Our janitorial service. I have  been most impressed by the attitude taken  by our janitors; that of old-fashioned  pride in their work as they strive to keep  our schools in top shape.  Regretably they do not always receive  the support they should have from those  for whose benefit the schools exist. How  about it kids?  The sixties saw tremendous changes  in the educational picture in this  school district reflecting the changing  thought across' the continent. Added to  the challenge of a rapidly increasing  school population which caused most of  our schools to burst at the seams, were  -the new ideas, whkh,��-CQruj-ontfc<l us,al.GVr  ery turn. The changes are }oo numerous  to do more than mention a few of the  more important ones, such as the establishment of kindergartens, the addition of  library-resource centres to- elementary  schools, recognition of the school's responsibility to supply remedial help for the  individual child's learning problems and  perhaps most important and far reaching  in its ultimate effects the gradual improvement in the flexibility of the curriculum and the schools efforts to adapL it  to individual needs.  If I may be allowed to forecast some  personal opinions, the seventies are going  to offer us a continuation of these same  challenges, in fact we'll probably have to  cope with change at an oven faster rate.  Especially   in   the  growth  of  the  school  ���by B. Mulligan, Trustee  populations and the pressure on our existing plant.. They are going to be years  in which we shall have to use the best  brains and ideas available to us to cope  with the problems of financing the facilities which our children will need and we  will .have to go even further in making  irtaximum use of existing facilities.  Working with young people has always been a rewarding and challenging  experience and it seems obvious that todays society this is an immensely important and strenuous job. We have a dedicated group of teachers in this school district and it is up to us all to give them  the support and help they need.  We also have fine young people, ready  and eager to take a share in the exciting  work of improving the society in which  we live and coping with the problems of  our times. We should be encouraging  them and finding opportunities to use  their talents, their- enthusiasm and their  Centennial directors  approve 38 new grants  BRITISH Columbia Centennial '71 Committee Board of Directors, has approved  40 cent per capita administrative and  programme grants for an additional 38  Local Centennial Comittees.  These grants are available to all communities which have formed committees  and submitted official organization forms  and applications to the Provincial Committee. There are a great number of the  200 committees formed throughout the  Province to date which have not yet  applied.  The first 10  cent  installment  of the  administrative    grant became    available,  September   1,   1969,  and  the  second  10'  cent installment will be sent to established committees March 1.  Local committees in municipal areas  are appointed   by  the Mayor, in   non-  municipal areas they are elected at public  meetings  organized  by regional consul- *  tants of the Department of Education and '  the Director of the Electoral Area.  Latest per capita grant payments approved: Nicomen Island, Perry's Apple-  dale, 70 Mile House, Nelson, West Creston,  New Westminster, Fort St. John, Pop-  kum, Comox Peninsula, Yale, Montrose,  Deroche, Delta, Summerland, North Cowichan, Cumberland, Alert Bay, Cariboo,  Matsqui, Sumas and Abbotsford, William's Lake and District, District of North  Vancouver, Crawford Bay, . Kinnaird-  Castlegar, Harrison Hot Springs, District  of Surrey, Hudson's Hope, Lardeau Val-  THERE are1 obviously two sides to each  coin and a letter submitted to the  Times this week was taken from the  Globe and Mail. Written by P.. C. Trend-  ell of Gait, it presents another aspect to  tho present day anti pollution drive relating to spraying insecticides etc.  As a fruit grower who has sprayed  consistently for many years with modern  lnsecticidss, and before I head for the  nearest apple tree with a rope, I'd like to  make a statement and ask a couple of  questions.  To give the picture, 1 have fruit-farmed since 1948, selling out my 45 acres last  year. For at least 15 years prior to my  taking the place, it had been sprayed with  lead arsenic as the main insecticide. Since  1948 we have sprayed close to the calender using the hew insecticides as they  reached the market. In addition to lead  arsenic, therefore, we used DDT and DDD,  Parathon and Malathion, Guthien and  Dia^zinon and others.  "--^hese were used not only in the orchards, but extensively around the buildings, in a futile effort to rid ourselves of  cluster flies, which talking of pollutants, I  consider to be the greatest menace to  clean and comfortable living, if hot to  public health, in rural Ontario today.  A creek runs through the centre of the  farm, and to it all the land is drained, surface-wise and by tile. We have built a  farm pond on the creek by the house. It  seems probable that the more persistent  residues of say DDT and arsenic would  drain down the creek to the Grand River  and eventually to Lake Erie. But I understand that after 20 years there must be  quite a buildup of residual poisons on that  farm.  The point that worries me-is this. How  come the apples still get^wormy if we  miss even one spray, and that the bugs,  and mosquitoes are thick in the orchards?  How come that as we mow the orchards  on sunny days the praying mantis sit up  all over and are so fat and dandy? How  come hogs and rabbits and little field  mice which seemingly no poison can eradicate, and against "which our only protection is wire mesh?  How come the orchards arc full of  birds all summer, and that when the leaves fall, so many nests have to be taken  out of the trees? How come that every  July when we hoped for a crop from our  five acres of cherries it was always a  question whether we or the birds would  get them? How come we lost out 60-40?  energy  Ti.ename.of> the- game- will, be,*,be    ^^^^ .��.^L,^ ^^  well-informed and understand what is  happening and why.

How  come there are so many snakes in the  damp places, turtles in the pond and turtle eggs in the dambank? How come the  big Blue Heron, which has come for years  stand evenings by the water's edge; the  lesser Bitterns steal silently through the  reeds; that pheasants crow and boldly escort their broods through the tree rows;  and that on the higher land at times coveys of partridge feed?  Most surprising of all are those barn  swallows, which nest with amazing precision in the drive shed every year. We  became exasperated with them quite often, what with them bringing back their  progeny with them every year and liming all over. They were becoming so numerous and familiar we had to take some  of their nests down the last few years.  But we loved their seeming friendliness,  their powerful flight and their persistent  skimming over the pond at feeding (time.  Feeding, no doubt, on the chemical-laden  insects from the orchards. Or were they  more clever than we thought, and took  only the insects" which had missed the  spray? ,      .  How come, with the exemption of Par-  athion, when we tied them up, we could  never teach our dogs to stay away from  the sprayer, with the result that they  would come back from each trip just  soppin'? How come these dogs were so  happy, and lived just as long as any other  dogs?  Good or bad, these were our creatures.  and I guess we were theirs. Sure, many  left us for the winter, but certainly many  of the same ones returned in the spring,  bse-ausc they knew the place, and maybe  were raised there. Some insects, animals  and birds probably spent their life cycle  there. How come after more than 20 years  of inlensive spraying, all life seems  stronger than ever on that farm?   ''...���  Anti-pollutionists we are, and conser- '  vationists, but surely studies of ecology  should be deep and continuous. The thjng  we have too much bf and need least is  public hysteria excited by investigator.,  who skim a subject with the object of  finding something sensational and selling  it to a TV network. Such actions are a  menace to sound judgement, and, most  importantly, to intelligent legislation.  mgmmmmMmmmmmmmmmtmmmmmimmMmmtmfflmmmim  TWILIGHT T1MRE  GIBSONS . .

'•This presents Uyp problems. Firstly,
because w? can .delay payment, we are
seduced into buying the things we NEED.
Secondly, the retailer usually has to pay
the credit card company anywhere from
4 per cent to 7 per cent of the sales price
and this gets built into the price he
puts on an article or service.
"When you and I go into a shop and
pay cash, the retailer makes 4 to 7 per
cent more .on our purchase.
"In effect, we are paying a penalty for
our frugality.
"I am urging that you request a discount on such purchases and I think retailers should be happy to give you 4 or
5 per cent for your prompt payment.
"When the retailer receives prompt
payment, he can reduce his bank loan, on
which he can be paying 10 per cent
"Secondly, his cash position is improved so that he can buy more competitively from his wholesaler, who also
can use cash and can thus buy on better
terms from the manufacturer.
"With,..credit being so scarce and thus
expensive,  everyone can benefit.
"The effects can pyramid. Costs can
be reduced and we all tend to become
more competitive. Ultimately, our entire economy could   be  on   a  sounder

The central library which is becoming  known as a Resource Centre, is the distribution point for some 783 filmstrips; 204  phonograph records; 95 picture sets; 87  art prints; 54 overhead transparencies  plus a large number of chart and document sets; sound films; slides; tape  recordings; models; periodicals and mis-  calleneous items. AH these together with^  the large circulating collection of books  and teachers' professional books have  been card catalogued, with each school  in the district having a set for reference  purposes.  Preparation of the catalogues involved  preparing and filing 32,000 colour banded  cards and together with cabinets to house  them cost the district $1,000. Mr. Crane  told the school board that use of the  catalogues is increasing, leading to greater circulation of resource material.  Since December 1969, austerity measures imposed on the National Film  Board by the Federal Government has  led to withdrawal of free loan films hitherto enjoyed by schools and other organizations. Up to that time G9 films had  been borrowed from the N.F.B. primarily  for use at Elphinstone. The report stated  that a letter protesting the curtailment is  being planned. It is hoped to make greater  use of loans from B.C.

Sechelt and Gibsons Elementary Schools have their own  libraries for book purchase.  Mr. Crane hopes to spend $6 per pupil  for purchase ot books this year with additional sums being allocated small  schools.  Besides his work in the central library,  Mr. Crane visits schools and conducts  classes   to  encourage   children   to   read  The-Peninsula-Times -Page B-3  Wednesday, February 25, 1970  and develop library skills.  The district Librarian concluded his  comprehensive report with the hope that  the Board will give due consideration to  the provision of librarian services for the  schools with separate libraries is ever  the financial stranglehold on education  is relaxed. Much of the unrealized potential of libraries as resource, centres for  the encouracement of independent learning may then be realized.  Elphie Highlights  books -.

Readers Right  Wrong impression  The Editor,  Sir: There appears to be. an erroneous  and possibly deliberate impression created  by both your paper and another that -  Mr. Frank West is the sole objector to  the proposed plan of Gibson's Village to  install a sewer system with an outfall  at Gospel Rock. Dismissing for the moment the question of on what form of  stationery he wrote his objection, the  fact. remains that he, while being perhaps the most vociferous on the subject,  is far from occupying a solitary role  and any inferences implying such are  grossly misleading.  I think the time is long overdue when  all of we concerned parties, myself included, should make our voices not only  heard but be prepared to stand,up. and  be counted as fully endorsing Mr. West's  stand on this matter.  In a letter in a recent issue of your  paper there-wei-c���several sn ide references  to Mr. West's interest inasmuch as his  position at Port Mellon and his residence  at Gower Point were concerned. I should  like lo point out that many of the main  advocates of this sewer plan also may  have "an a.\e to grind" in that they are  engaged in the building trades, real-  estate business, suppliers of material, etc.  In conclusion might I add that I,  personally, have little confidence in a  village council (Gibsons) that cannot  even enforce a Dog Control Law so what  hope or prospect have we for them conforming to the terras set out in a sewage  disposal plan?  D. CRUIKSHANK  No animosity  The Editor,  *'" Dear Sir: There has just been brought  '- my attention a copy of the "BRIEF re  VILLAGE OF GIBSONS APPLICATION  FOR A PERMIT UNDER THE POLLUTION CONTROL ACT. 1967." dated  December 30, 1969, and date-stamped by  the Pollution Control Branch, December  31, 1909.  Section 4 of the Brief reveals an important item of information: "The facilities will be constructed over a three  yeai* period. The initial phase will include  a collection system for 165 acres in the  Village, the foreshore interceptor, the  pumping station, the force main and the  outfall. The second phase will include  additional collecting sewers and the treatment plant."  Does  this  mean  that,  from  the  time  cribed?  I am. aware that "some ill-feeling has  been stirred up locally over the proposed  Gibsons sewer system. But neither I as  an individual, nor this Association, has  any animosity whatever towards tire  Village of Gibsons. We recognize that,  in time, as population increases, our area,  too, may need to instal a sewer system  and treatment plant.  Our prime concern is to preserve the  amenities of this part of the coast ���  amenities which are of just as much  aesthetic and economic importance to  residents of Gibsons as they are to us.

MARGARET   RITCHIE  Helo ofiered  The Editor,  Dear Sir: Spring is coming early this  year by the looks of things and now is  the time when people are beginning to  think about cleaning up the garden shed  and getting the tools ready for work in  the garden.  The Sunshine Coast Environment Protection Society would like to remind  people that their offer,to collect unwanted:,  ' pesticides, weed killers 'and' "defoliants'  etc., is still open and suggests that anyone with any of these things, which their  conscience or common sense suggests that  they should not use, could deposit them  at any of the following places:  Gibsons���Coast News Office; Sechelt  ���Benner Bros.

Here's a handy tip for book ownors; To eliminate ragged
paper jackets on books, spray the covers with a coat of clear
locqtier or varnish, It's o good idea to practice on an old book
until you get tho hang ol it. Stand the book on end with Ihe
covers parallel and protect tho pages with a cloth or paper,
Be sure to read the Instructions on tho can before you begin,
keeping In mind that several light coats are more ellective |
than one heavy coat, To prevent Ihe coating from building up \
and running, keep the can in constant motion, starting the !
stroke ho fore the button Is pushed and finishing it alter you \
release the button   Let dry thoioughly,  Presto—a protective \

To keep them  in proper shape the pruning season extends nearly the whole year round, that  is to say, there js some type of pruning  to be done in the gai'den, practically every  month of the year. The most important  time to start pruning is in the late spring  and continue throughout the whole summer.  Reasons for pruning shrubs are varied,  some are pruned for general appearance,  some for foliage effect, some for the production of flowers and others for the ber-  rjes which do so much to brighten a garden in the winter. To get the maximum  results from each type it is desirable that  you obtain a good knowledge of the growing, flowering, and fruiting habits of each  type of shrup.  First pruning to be done jn the sprang  is the removal of all broken and dead  branches. Later on when the early flowering shrubs have finished flowering they  can be pruned and shaped up to produce  the maximum bloom the next year. Good  examples of this group are forsyfhia, and  flow.erjng currant and some yg4e*ties ��f  berperjs." FQrffliki& stojjjd fjaye all Ifereisr  year-old and older wood removed. When  we consider that the best bloom is carried  on one year old wopd.it will be apparent  the fairly heavy pruning is advisable.  Currants, being often grown more or less  as standards merely require to be pruned  .into shape, just after they have finished  flowering. To prune Berberis intelligent-?  ly there are three objectives to keep in  mind: the flowers; the colored leaf effect  in the fall; and lastly the fruit.  The first fairly heavy pruning should  be done now, but not enough to upset the  natural lines of the shrubs. The second  can be helped by retaining some of the  old flowering wood to produce that nice  arching effect peculiar to berberis. To  show the berries off to the best advan-  shine Coast. tage, only enough pruning should be done  At  present the Community Associa-    \�� keep the shrub in the shape that is  tion is looking into the proposed gravel  ^Gs: sorted to the particular type of ber-  Wednesdoy, February 2$, 1970,    The Peninsula Times Pflge BrS  feJEW ARRI��ALS AT THE  f^eninduta 2Jime&  liant yellow flowering chrysanthemum, Mrs. Sluis received a card of  appreciation signed by the boys and  coaches.

It was noted that there are approximately 500 residents in Selma Park and  membership would indicate that few  care about what goes on'it*" the conr-  munity. Membership is ��1 per year and  includes use of the hall; use of the library  which is open every second and fourth  Saturday of the month from 2 to 4 p.m.  A sketch club is held every Tuesday  commencing at 2 p.m. and the Cribbage  Club is active every second and fourth  Friday of the month.  beris.'As there are many different varieties of berberis it is good to find out the  growing habits of'the ones you have.  The summer, flowering shrubs all do  best and give the best flowers when the  three-year-old wood is removed every  year and the young wood retained. An  exception is buddlea or summer lilac  which does best when cut down to near  soil level, this treatment produces growth  five or six feet long and the flowers last  much longer. Summer pruning helps keep  shrubs in proper shape. By removing any  young growth that is growing the wrong  direction and pinching out the growing  tip of the growth that is growing too  strongly.  ii MB PADDIJIS  z _ Ji  I  I-  ���   a  Non-confidence  Board .^secretive  claim Association members  )N-confidence in the Sunshine�� Coast  Regional Board was expressed by 6ome  members of Selma Park Community Association and others felt that the Board  had been secretive regarding plans for  gravel mining and barge loading outlet in  Madeira Park Highlights  SPRING is early this year at Madeira  Park.

Mrs. Dawson commented that she did-  not know how the Board had been working on the matter but reminded those present that Regional Board directors are  elected by the taxpayers and she could  not interfere with such a body.  Selma Park Community Association  President Mr. H. Slade said be did not  see why the board had to be so secretive  after promising to keep in touch with  the Association regarding developments.  However he felt that the Regional Board  is comparatively new and directors are  probably feeling their way along. They  are all human and decent fellows, he said  adding that perhaps If more, members  attended the public meetings they would  learn more.ahopt what Is happening,  One member of the Association who  has been having discussions with Construction Aggregates engineer, Mr. Ross,  felt that the Association should go on  record as being strictly against any outlet  within the Sechelt���Selma Park��� Davis  Bay area.

Forest Industrial Relations, representing 120 companies in the industry, disclosed .the proposals after an initial meeting that opened negotiations for a new  7^        master agreement with the I-WA.  "Since we signed the last master  agreement ,with the IWA in 1968 the  union has staged more than 70 wildcats,  or illegal work stoppages in the coast  district," said John M. Billings," president  of FIR.  "These illegal stoppages have cost  millions of dollars in lost wages, and production, and have threatened our ability  to meet our market obligations. It is to  end these continuous and costly illegal  stoppages that we have proposed new  terms to the IWA today."  The industry's proposals basically  centre around amendment of Article  XXVI of the present agreement, titled  "strikes and lockouts."  The amendment provides that there  shall be no strikes, work stoppages or  activities which interfere with maintenance of normal production or service  by the rnion and its members during the  life of the agreement. The union and its  members are not to counsel such activity  and, if illegal stoppages occur, the union  is to instruct members involved to cease  such activity.  FIR proposes further amendments on  the subject of illegal stoppages, to provide:  1) Loss of a statutory holiday for any  employee who participates in an illegal walkout within 30 days of such  holiday;  2) Loss of call time for employees who  show up to .work but can't because  of an illegal strike;  3) Loss of fare allowances for participating in illegal strike;  4) Loss of seniority, at, the rate of one  year for each day an employee participates in illegal activity;  5) Postponement   of   the "application of  seniority privileges during an illegal  work stoppage.  A further industry proposal  is Tor a  clause stipulating that new operations  certified to the IWA during the life of  thc master agreement will come under  the terms of that agreement. This would  make the master contract apply automatically when new operations start up,  rather than allow for a new series of negotiations for the one operation,  Other Industry proposals are for revisions in the contract relating to the  composition of shop committees, hours of  work for casual employees, bobtail shifts,  health And welfare, and a seven-day  operation at the option of individual  companies.  The Industry also proposed a job evaluation program for thc coast sawmill  Industry,  and  a one-year  limitation  on  " "    ������"' -'  ������"���"'   '   the retroactive feature bf any award  made by the permanent arbitrator under  the agreement.

GRACE McCarthy, Minister without Portfolio, released this week details of proposals by Premier W. A. C.  Bennett as Minister of Finance for legislation designed to make home ownership  much easier -for those presently renting.  Traditionally, Canadians have been a  people who want to own their own home  and the proposal put, forward by the  Premier and Minister of Finance, the  Honourable W. A. C. Bennett; gives fur-  theropportunity to British Columbians to  do so. This new legislation offers to those  who have been in a rental situation in  British Columbia either an outright Grant  of up to $500 non-repayable, or a second  mortgage of $2,500 on the purchase of  an older home. The previous legislation  is still in effect, that is, on the purchase  of a new home; $1,000 outright Grant or  $5,000 Second Mortgage. The new legislation is designed to help the tenants in our  communities. The following points should  be made known for the information of  families considering the purchase of an  older home using the new legislation:  ��� Any property purchased before April  1st, 1970 will not qualify.  ��� If you wish to hold a particular home  for when the new legislation is proclaimed, it is possible to take an  option to be exercised after April 1st,  1970.  ��� The applicant must be a tenant occupying rental accommodation in British"  Columbia for not less than two years  immediately  preceding  date  of  purchase of the property in respect to  ;*,    which he is applying.  i��� Date  of  purchase  must be  between  April 1st, 1970 and March 3lst, 1971,  both dates inclusive.  There must be a First' Mortgage at  least equal to the Provincial loan.  Interest rate'of Mortgage is 8%%.  If there is no default, 10% of the required previous twelve payments (not  exceeding $25) is refunded. On a 25-  year mortgage, this reduces the effective interest rate to 7W,  - If. the borrower who is the breadwinner dies, tho Province forgives the  remaining debt. (There is no charge for  this service.)  ���The cheque , for either | the loan or  the Grant is released only after the  applicant- is in occupation of thc house,  ��� but the Government will issue a*  "Letter of Intent" in advance so the  applicant    will    know    how   much  " money will be forthcoming.  ��� Requests   for   application   forms   for  the   $500   grant   or   the   $2,500   loan  can only be met after this Bill is passed by the Legislature, and becomes  law. This would normally be towards  the end of March.  This resume of the newest opportunities for Home Ownership In British  Columbia does not outline all the details.  If any further information is needed,  please write to me at the Parliament  Biuldings, in Victoria, British Columbia.  This legislation "could mean'for some  people, an opportunity to own the very  home they are now renting or. soma other  home, at a lesser monthly payment that  they are now paying out in rent, and  give them an opportunity to build an  equity in a home of their own, and to  provide a hedge against inflation.  i^ii^k^fe^^  SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  REGIONAL WATER AUTHORITY  v To permit' connection of new mains water service will be  discontinued for a period of six hours commencing midnight  February 26th to 6 a.m. February 27th. 1970.
