trip paving,
lighting £yed
THE department of transport has announ- '
'    ced plans to study the feasibility of
paving the Gibsons-Sechelt airstrip and
installing runway lighting.
-> The move follows a,i request from
Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce for the department to' consider
paving and lighting the airport.
- In a letter to chamber president Morgan Thompson, DOT spokesman G. N.
Dungey noted that the airport was presently zoned for daytime flying only.
"To permit night flying, it is understood that tree clearing would be required
the approaches to meet the more
restrictive zoning as well as considerable earth removal and tree clearing
on the north side."
Dungey explained that financial assistance application forms had been forwarded to Sechelt village council to complete.
"On receipt of these completed forms,
an economic study will be arranged to
evaluate the paving of the airstrip as
well as the feasibility of -installing runway lighting."
Neil   Sutherland,   village   clerk,   told
The Times that the extensive forms are
currently being completed and will be
returned to the department as soon as
Chamber may send
assessment brief
SECHELT—The British Columbia Chamber of Commerce may submit a brief
to the government on the increased assessments and local chambers and individual
members have been urged to prepare information.
Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce president Robert Scales has called
an executive meeting tonight at the Bank
of Montreal at 7:30 p.m.
W. P. Gardiner, zone director of the
B.C. Chamber, sent to all" chambers in
his area a copy of the following telegram
from Ralph Pettie of the B.C. Chamber:
"Urgent you contact all chambers in
your zone to supply me immediately with
municipal statements of assessments for
current .plus last three years stop. Also
as much information as possible concerning individual assessments and taxes 1974
stop. Remind them Jan. 17 deadline for
filing assessment appeals."
Scales suggested that interested members gather required information and
bring it to the executive meeting.     '

SECHELT—-Due to  amendments  in  the
Assessment Equalization Act, there
will be "substantial" increases in assessments in the village, W. L. Umphrey, provincial assessor, told Sechelt village council by letter.
"Principle feature of the amendment
is that it gifted assessment restrictions on
all property except for property used for
residential purposes or qualified as farmland." Umphrey said.
"Consequently, all other properties,
including all types of vacant land (except
farm land) commercial land and improvements, industrial land and improvements
are now required to be assessed at 50
per cent of actual value.
* "Therefore, jn order to meet this statutory requirement, there will be some
fairly substantial increases in assessments
which ,are no longer limited to the 10
SUNSHINE Coast ^Credit Union, Sechelt,
has been appointed driver's licensing,
motor vehicle licencing and insurance
agency for the entire lower Sunshine
Coast, manager Howard Pratt told The
Times Saturday.
Pratt said that the idea for the credit
union to pick up the functions after the
village of Sechelt threw them out was
proposed by Ray Hadfield, superintendent
of motor vehicles. Assuming the new
duties means that the credit union will
issue all forms of licences including trailers, trucks and transfers; Autoplan insurance and driver's licences. ,
The village of Sechelt earlier dropped
the licencing and insurance functions but
decided to retain the driver's licencing
^ functions and provide facilities for the
drivers-examiners. But Hadfield preferred
to keep all the functions under one roof
and took the driver's licencing away from
the village as well and turned the responsibility over to the credit union.
'Hadfield called on Pratt Jan. 5 to
make the proposal. Later in the week
Pratt went to Vancouver to look into
more aspects of the program and on
Friday, the board of directors of the credit
union studied the plan and decided to
go ahead.
     "We accepted the function and planned
to go into the insurance and licencing
business all within a week," Pratt said,
"and now we'll have to train a girl and
find a part-time girl who can operate a
bookkeeping machine."
Pratt said that if the credit union had
stayed in its former office on Wharf
Street, it could not have taken on the
added responsibilities.
Pratt told The Times that the credit
union will not be set up to handle any of
the functions until Feb. 1.
"A girl has to be sent to Vancouver
to be trained and we have to find someone to handle our bookkeeping machine,"
he said.
Pratt said: "I was concerned that our
hours tmight have to be changed to ac
commodate the new services, but Hadfield said our office hours were satisfactory,"
The credit union is open from 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
Pratt said that the credit union will be
prepared to finance insurance premiums.
Other credit unions taking on the
functions include Lake Cowichan and Port
Coquitlam, he said.
All other announced agencies will continue to sell Autoplan insurance and
licence plates, including Gibsons village
Gibsons council had discussed dropping the functions "and proposed that the
motor vehicles branch rent space in the
municipal hall.
Hadfield met with Mayor Larry Labonte and Aid. Kurt Hoehne Jan. 5 in
Gibsons and was shown the basement area
that council offered to provide for nominal rent.
"We told him we weren't forcing the
issue, but that we wanted to work out a
reasonable solution," said village clerk
Jack Copland. "Hadfield said he really
appreciated this approach."
Gibsons coucil offered to build necessary office facilities for the Insurance
Corp. of B.C. at its own cost.
"I don't mind the credit union handling insurance and licence issuance," said
Copland, "but I think there should be a
government agency to administer motor
vehicle services on the Sunshine Coast.
We have the population here for it."
Gibsons council, to Saturday, hasn't
had a final reply from Hadfield to its
offer. Copland was surprised to read (in

From realty iirm
GIBSONS—Village council has encountered opposition from a local real estate
company to its recently introduced subdivision and zoning bylaw, which requires
developers to service subdivisions at their
own cost. '        '' ,

GIBSONS council  is certainly on the
right track with its new subdivision
The legislation sets out minimum
standards which must be met by developers and gives council the teeth to
enforce these regulations. ^
, However, the bylaw als\ requires
subdividers to take financial responsibility for servicing their lots. ,
This is only,as it should be, since
the developer stands to gain a great
deal from a successful subdivision and
the village relatively little.
In the past, Gibsons., had no hard
and fast rules on the financing of subdivision services, such as water, power
ions in the municipality.-
In a letter .to council, the .firm argued:
"Prepared subdivisions, are also to the
advantage of the village and its development."
- True. But that advantage, in terms
of increased tax revenue, is insignificant
in comparison to the financial, returns
enjoyed by the developer. Otherwise,
why would he be in the business?
We  hope  council  makes clear  to
developers and potential developres that
.the village will no longer be content to
finance what is, in fact, a purely commercial venture.

SQUAMISH-municipal council has worked out a deal with the Howe Sound
School District to use high school land
for an ecological park as well as a municipal complex.
Council decided to work out such a
lease with the school boad, following a
joint committee meeting with representatives of the school district and aldermen.
At that meeting it was agreed that a
five-year lease' could be drawn up so
that the high school could continue devej

Column distresses
Editor, The Times:
Sir—Having read The Peninsula Times
now for about six months, I have come
across one column that distressess me. It
is the one written by Joan Proctor. I feel
that this is an absolute waste of paper,
telling everyone how she is getting along
today  (Saturday), knows that it was a
hazardous adventure."
Bringing a new boat and trailer home
from the city, I got to Horseshoe Bay and
onto the ferry without difficulty at 10:10
About one mile from Langdale on the
lower road to Gibsons, my car slid into
the ditch with a soft crunch.
Among* the many^motorists who stopped to offer help, was a pleasant young
reporter from your newspaper.
When the young man discovered that,
my urgent need was for a tow truck, he
promised to send one along.
Then somewhat to my embarrasment,
he asked that he be allowed to take a
At that moment it dawned on me just
how ridiculous my situation was.
I could have waited a few days for
better  weather but no  -  getting   along

\ traffic comes to the community to carry
on the business of a hustling commer-
; cial centre. But it's becoming increas-
;' ingly difficult to conduct' that, business
; because there is inaequate parking.
J When the Bank of Montreal and the
; court facilities moved from Cowrie Street
{ sites, next to the post office, it was as-
j sumed that pressure would ease there.
! Well that isn't the case as anyone can
! see who has tried to collect or deposit
! mail at the post office. In fact, it's down-'
J right dangerous for cars turning, off
i Cowrie into the parking area lot: One
[ day there will be a serious accident there
| especially as westbound traffic roars
| through the centre of town. Often there
j is a line of cars waiting to turn into the
j post office and heavy trucks come care-
| en ing around the corner. So far, tragedy
! has been averted but how long will it
!   last?
j The village should never have allow-'
i cd the Bank of Montreal building to pro-
j cced without assuring there would be
} adequate parking space for employees
{ and customers, As it is,, about six oars
{ can park behind the bank and now that
T work is continuing on the second storey,
f^ parking will become even more acute.
; The village should insist on adequate
;■ parking facilities before any more con-
» structlon is allowed in the commercial
», core. '
I On Wharf Street, it taxes the ability
{ of a Grand Prix! driver to ncgotintc from
j parking to backing out onto the main
'»•' flow, of traffic. Again, there is.liable to
be a serious accident there ns tho sum-,
mcr traffic increases.
True, there nro a few parking spaces
off the main streets but not nearly enough
.  The village is planning to spend about
$ 18,000 to purchase a bnckhoc and small
J dump truck. Let's look at priorities. Wc
' need public parking facilities first. They
J' don't have lo bo free or fancy,'merely,
5  adequate. '   ,
t ' We're not suggesting thnt' the village
I enter into such n parking complex by
I itself, It will have to be in conjunction
{, with' the merchants. The Sechelt and
;   District Chamber of Commerce, under
on the fumes of an ever-increasing necklace of'cars slowly encircling the village
looking for a place to park.
Why don't they?
WHEN The Times, in the column Sunshine Coastings, started a Why Don't
They? feature, the idea caught on and
there have been some remarkably good
Most of the ideas have merit and
they are too good to run just once and
forget so The Times has complied the
best ideas and will run them each week   ~  , ««,„„„ .,„ „.„ _.   ,       , ,.       ,

in this space. We will add to the list   Mrs E  Tjensvold  aU of the forest ser.
with the passing weeks and we will re- -
her husband has to say about it all.
I'm sure that there are quite a few
people on the Peninsula who could write
a far more interesting column about
what's happening around Sechelt than

Editor, The Times
Sir: On behalf of the Sechelt Guide
Association, we would like to thank all
those who supported our Christmas tree
sale. We appreciated the kindness of Mr.
move any that have been taken care of
(providing that wc hear about it.)
To add to the list (or remove items)
call The Times at 885-9654, 885-2635,
886-2121 or write Box 310, Sechelt.
Before you call, check the list—it
may already have been suggested.
vicei Further thanks are extended to Dick
Clayton for the use of his lot and also to
Brian Play, Timmy Woods and Edward
Sigouln for the able assistance.
• The guides realize that they cannot
spell s cess without ul
Public apology
provides no assurance of either patience
or prudence.
Anyhow) two young, fellows cruising
by in a sturdy pickup, tied a rope to my
car and pulled me back onto the road. A
thank you was all they would accept.
In trouble again on the steep curve out
of Gibsons, I could not go forward, even
with chains on and I darest not risk going
. backward downhill.
Presto! Three young men in a chain-
equipped pickup truck produced rope and
towed me all the way to the top of the
hill.     .
Believe it or not, they absolutely refused payment, If and when I am next
time inclined to be critical of our young
folk, I think instead I shall remember the
heart-warming adventures of this.day.
Tow-truck .operators will not be unhappy over this. They had far more distress calls than they could handle.
Again, thank you, boys.

There is no; charge  for boarding at Langdale. When the vessel  arrived, at Horseshoe Bay/ he stayed  aboard and ate again on the way back,  thereby assuring himself of at least two  squares for that day.  , Okay, so its tfme consuming,' but it  sure has a beautiful sea view.

My employer pays mean allowance  to cover my., board arid r,oom, while I am  working at distant work sites 'away from  my ordinary place of residence where I  support my wife and family.! Previously,  I was told that this had to be included*in  ' income for income, tax, purposes because  I was not a construction worker.'I understand that 'this no longer applies. Is this  correct?        .       "  A. Yes. This exempting provision now  applies to* all' workers employed at a  distant work' site providing they meet  the other necessary conditions.        ..  Q. I arrived" in Canada in April of  ' 1973 and I am told that I have to prorate  my $100 standard deduction for medical  fees and charitable donations when filing  my income tax return. What does this  mean? ���   . ���      -  A. As explained, in the Guide which  accompanies, your tax return, you' need  report only the income you earned after  you arrived in Canada. On the other hand,  you are not entitled to claim personal  exemptions 'and the standard deduction  for the full year. For example, if you  arrived in Canada "on April 15 you would  have resided' here for 260 of the 365 days  of 1973 and would be entitled to claim a  standard deduction of 260/365 of $100 or  $71.23 instead of $100. Your personal  exemption would be calculated in a similar way.  Q. Do I have to get receipts for charitable donations?  , A. Yes. You have to secure receipts for  all-claims for charitable donations. You  may list your claim on the schedule provided with your income tax return, and  you must attach the receipts to the return.  Q. Can a divorced woman claim the  equivalent married exemption of $1,400  for a 13-year-old child (no income) in a  mental institution, if she pays the expenses such as medical, clothing, etc.  A. No. The child would have to live  with the taxpayer in the self-contained  domestic establishment maintainecUby the  taxpayer. '*  '  Q. I contribute, at my place of employment, to a pension- plan. However, I- want  to have a larger pension when I retire I  have also taken out a retirement savings  plan with a trust company. What is the  maximum contribution that I can claim on  my income tax form for both of them?  A. As an employee you are allowed to  deduct your contributions to the pension  plan and your registered retirement savings plan up to a combined total of $2,500  or 20 per cent of yo]ur earned income if it  is less than $12,500!%  Q. I am self-employed and I pay into a  registered retirement savings plan with  an insurance company. I have no salaried  Did you receive yours:  /  Utopian application  een maii@<  MOST British  Columbia| motorists have  ���- received  their  application forms  for ���  vehicle   licence   renewal \nd   Autoplan  insurance, the Insurance Corporation of  British Columbia- has announced.,  ���    For those who don't receive forms by  mid-month, there's a special procedure to  assure them proper licensing and insur- -  ance coverage before March 1, when Autoplan becomes effective for all vehicles in  the province.  Norman Bortnick, vicepresident and  general manager of the crown corporation  says any motorists who hasn't received  a form should take the existing vehicle  registration to an agent' or a Motor Vehicle Branch office to have a special form  completed for 1974 vehicle licence validation and insurance coverage.  Computer printing of application  forms has been completed and the massive  mail handling operation at ICGC's headquarters in' downtown Vancouver was  finished nearly two weeks ago. .  Bortnickiestimated that in total about  four per cent of the forms people receive  in the mail could include errors resulting  from   faulty   information   fed   into   the  computer. '  Checks uncovered a number of cases  where vehicles were classed in the wrong  rating territory. "These errors occurred  in areas located close to the borders between 'the Greater Vancouver and Fraser  Valley rating territories," he_s,aid. Other  file errors have been discovered in vehicle  weight, status, and model year.  In addition, some persons'changed their  addresses or transferred vehicles after last  Nov. 26���the- date' the Motor Vehicle  Branch records were "frozen" for Autoplan purposes. Their forms may list their  - former vehicle, or' may not be delivered if  the. address is wrong. .  The special forms in the hands of  agents and* Motor Vehicle Branch personnel can be used.to correct the problems.  "While we feel'the error Tate is small'  for the mammoth volume of forms handled  by the IBM computer, it does underline  the need for motorists to carefully check  all details of their local motor vehicle  licence office.  "These agents are trained to recognize  The Peninsula Times ?age A-7  Wednesday/January 16, 1974  errors and make sure that corrected information is, provided 'sp that everyone obtains the right coverage," Bortnick said.  He reminded motorists that a telephone  "information centre at ICBC headquarters  (665-2800, call collect) is available to answer queries on forms handling.  A fault we" share with another person  - is more binding , than a - common excellence.,     '  HiiaamiMiiiiaiaiiaiaajiaamaiaaiiianiiiiiimaiaiiaaaiaaiaaiinK  ���a t * m  l       Gibsons Pentecostal  5  ��� HIGHWAY &'MARTIN ���  Sunday School 9:45 a.m.  Services 11:00 a.m.' and 7:00 p.m.  ���-1  3  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  LUCKY WINNER of Sunshine Coast  Lions Club $100 bingo was Mrs. Joyce  Duff of Madeira- Park.

The  cess.  income and understand that I can claim  for income tax purposes, a maximum of **last one held in October was a huge sue  $4,000 for my retirement saving plan. Is  this correct? '   , '  A. If you are not covered by an em-'  ployee pension plan you would be entitled  to claim amounts paid into a registered  retirement savings plan up to $4,000, or 20  per cent of your earned income for the  year, whichever is less.  Q. I understand that the employment  expense deduction can be claimed to a  maximum of $150. Can I still claim my  union dues in addition to this claim?  A. Yes. You can still'claim your union  dues as you did in previous years. Please  , note, however, that receipts are not required for the employment expense deduction but you should secure receipts  for your' union dues and attach these to  your return.

MOST cautious residents kept their cars  safely in, their garages last Saturday  and stayed home, admiring the Christmas  card views from their windows.  However, one JKelcome Beach resident  had gone into Vancouver to pick up his  new boat. With news of a good run of ���  spring salmon and fishermen getting their  limit, Vince Shannon had been frustrated  at the' delay in getting delivery* of his  ,  boat, and once he had it in tow, no four  or five inches of snow was going to deter  him from bringing it home and launching  it at the first opportunity. You can read  elsewhere in this paper about his difficulties in getting home and how he was  helped on two occasions by young men  who refused to accept any payment for  their trouble. It just goes to show that  you can't judge a good Samaritan by the  length of his hair!  On Jan. 7, Mrs. Blanche McCrady was  hostess at a dinner party in honor of  Capt. and Mrs. Jerry Williams who^ were  celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary. Mrs. Janet Allen, who proposed the  .toast wished them many more happy  .years together.  , There was an interesting reunion at  ' the home of Mrs. Helen Dratsch last week  when she had as guest an old school  friend Mrs. Erika Reuter of Stuttgart,  Germany, whom she hadn't seen for 54  years. Mrs. Dratsch and Mrs. Reuter had  been at school together at Stettin, Pomer-  ania from 1910 to 1920. They had lost  touch until three years ago when Mrs.  ���by Mary Tinkley  Dratsch received from a friend in Lubeck  a copy of a newspaper containing the announcement, of the 100th anniversary  celebration of her old school. She immediately wrote to Mrs. Reuter, whose  name -was mentioned in the announcement, but strangely enough, Mrs. Reuter  was in British Columbia at that time,  visiting twd of her sons who live here,  ahd so she didn't receive Mrs. Dratsch's  letter until she returned to Germany.  Mrs. Dratsch has recently returned  from a holiday in Mexico, about which  we shall hear more next week.  Jack Burrows celebrated his 75th birthday in St. Mary's Hospital last Saturday  when Mrs. Burrows braved the wintry  conditions to spend the day with  him.  Children of the Halfmoon Bay School  were entertained at a picnic luncheon at  the home of Mrs. Dorothy Greene last  week.

Davie and  by Ann Jones from Simon Fraser University who will be a student teacher at the~  school for the next four months.

(Matthew 18:21-22).  Alhough that appears to be a very  difficult assignment for most of us, the  Lord said further: ". . . Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good  to them that ��� hate you, and pray for  them which despitefully use you and persecute you." (Matthew 5:44),,  The person who truly forgives is not  only giving something, he also gains, He  frees himself from displeasure, bitterness  and hate. For our own welfare, we should  bo slow to anger and quick to forgive, ,'  Injuring an enemy puts us below him;  revenging one makes us oven with him;  forgiving sots us above him, Time spent  in getting oven could better be used in  getting ahead.

Mrs. Gladys Brown of -the mini-thrift  shop "said that anyone wishing to donate  items should contact her at 883-9928. She  reported that she hsfe a request for lamps  of any type.  Members were reminded that the annual meeting for hospital volunteers will  be held Jan. 18 at 11 a.m. at St. Hilda's  Church Hall, Sechelt.  Sheila McCann introduced two new  volunteers. They are: Mrs. Diane Gilker  and Mrs.- Susan Van de Braak.  Only 18 persons attended the meeting  Jan. .9. President Evelyn Olson presided.  Members arrived at the hall bundled as  though they expected to go skating later.  Word had gone out that the furnace was  not working. The wave of warm air that  greeted those who, turned out was va welcome surprise. For that reason and that  many members were on vacation, the  meeting was short' & the rest of the business will be conducted at the February  meeting.  Tea was served by Mrs. Peggy Riley  and Mrs. Irene Hodgson.  Joan Proctor  . . . Strait talk  SOME people -fear snakes,  some loathe  spiders and others have a distinct dislike of slugs. Personally, I hate automatic  car washes.  There's a fear harbored within me of  being rub-a-dubbed into oblivion.  Living here on the Peninsula I don't  have to worry about mechanized car  washes. There aren't any. My car-washer  is my teen-aged son whose rates have  now reached an all-time high. Consequently, I have been driving a car that can  only be described as dirty. Mind you it's  ' not filthy, piggy, kind of dirt; just country road pot-hole and puddle type dirt . . .  I suppose you might say it's a comfortably  dirty car.  Well, the other day we were over to  the city and happened to park directly  across the street from my old adversary  of bygone days-in-the city-life, the automatic car wash.  I hoped he wouldn't notice, but having  completed his business, my husband climbed back into the car and headed for the  yawning jaws of the car wash.  I begged and pleaded with him not  to go through with it. I even reminded  him of what had happened the last time  we had been seduced into the shady confines of countless sprayings and sudsings.  Our aerial had been snapped off. Oh sure  we'd had it fixed, but it never was quite  the same again. We were unable to rei-  place the orange plastic' ball' that said.  "76." M  I reminded him of the time we'd gone  through the car wash with one rear  window open a crack. For awhile I  thought we were going to sink. Believe  me it's a desperate feeling trying to bail  out the back seat of a car with nothing  more than an old paper cup and straw.  But it was too late. We were already  on the treadmill in neutral. We were  powerless.' Water and suds began pum-  meling our metal body. Then the giant  squeegies were upon us. I, knew the  buffers were waiting in the wings.  When we emerged once again into  the sunshine ready to take our place in  the traffic jam of life, I suppose we looked  a little brighter. And we are now rid  of ��� the slogan someone had fingered on  the trunk saying, "please wash me,"  "Cuddly" baby carrier still available;  also baby albums for "boy" babies or  "girl" babies, Miss Bee's, Sechelt.

Goal of the recreational committee  sponsoring the arena is 200 debentures or  $75,000. That's the amount needed to  guarantee payment of the operating costs.  Federal and provincial grants are  available, Nelson said, and the rink's use  qualifies it for the one-third provincial  recreational grant.      ' ''  The five-acre site may be leased to the  village of Sechelt, instead of .deeded as  originally intended, "but this is quite  satisfactory," the mayor told The Times^  "Proposal tenders have been called for  the building shell. A proposal tender does  not require, the village to go ahead with  the project should a hitch develop."  "The rink  will be open for  curling'  Monday evenings until Thursday night  and could be used by school children,  housewives and retired people during the  day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. _  "From Friday morning until Sunday  at 8 p.m. the rink will be open for skating and hockey. During the day on Friday, it will be available to school children  for' skating.  "On Friday night and all of Sunday,  the arena will have open skating. Saturday is set aside for hockey.  "During the curling time patch ice will  be available for"figure skating and also  a 50x85 foot area will be available for  skating.  "Prospects for the rink look very good,  but should an insurmountable problem  arise, all monies from debenture sales  will be refunded Dec. 31, 1974," the mayor  concluded.  SECHELT  school  board  has   agreed/ in  principle to the location of a community swimming pool on school property.  Gibsons Kinsmen Club, which is currently raising funds'to construct a pool  for the village, earlier requested trustees  for approval'to construct a pool on school  property.  ^ And ,at the boards Jan. < 10 meeting,  trustee Peters Prescesky .reported that his  building arid grounds committee was in  favor of establishing- a pool either at Elphinstone Secondary School, near its pro- -  posed'tennis courts, or at Gibsons Elementary on the upper "playing field.  On the motion of trustee Pat Murphy,  the board agreed to ask the "Kinsmen'to'  arrange a meeting* between themselves,  Gibsons council and the school board."  Under other business, the board gave  approval-to Pender aHrbour Lions Club-  td construct two 20 foot- bleachers, four  tiers high, at Madeira Park Elementary  School.  The facilities will be used by PE classes during the school week, and by the  community at weekends and in'the summer, particularly for minor league baseball and cricket.  Lions   members   will   construct   the'  bleachers and students will paint them.  On the suggestion of trustee John MacLeod the board agreed that no new equips  - memVshould- be included "in the 1974 bud-  - get estimates. , .'  If equipment is specifically requested  by principals, it should be financed from  the. capital reserve fund, MacLeod felt.  Trustees voted to donate two plaques  to' the upcoming Sunshine Coast Music  and Drama Festival.    ,  Sunshine Coast Kiwanis Club, which  is sponsoring  the  event,  had requested  a donation of $25 to purchase a trophy  for the school group music class.  ' The plaques will go to winners in the  school choir and school band categories.  Prescesky was. re-appointed chairman  of the board's buildings and grounds  committee.'

CONCERN for special education and help  ,   for children with learning' disabilities  . is growing, both here in Powell River and  ' other areas in North America:  ���.Dr. Alastair Thores reported to a meeting of nurses in the Coast-Garibaldi Health  -Unit recently that the conclusion he had  .formed after'attending a meeting'of ex-  \ perts in Learning Disabilities of Children  .'in Seattle'last,month. Increasing emphasis  ,! on and concern with this problem, will be  t evident and that they should  all take  ! time to try -and familiarize themselves  ,' with its many aspects. During the course  ���> of the meeting, he said, a great many experts from different backgrounds had contributed and this illustrated rather well  the. tendency now for people with both  educational and medical backgrounds to  get together and pool their skills to solve  some of the problems being encountered  ,in the learning process.    -   '  '   Dr. Thores was more hopeful than ever  before after this particular meeting' that  , ��� a balanced and cooperative approach could  1 be taken to this problem, and speaking as  a paediatrician, he' was very pleased to  ��� ��� see that physician's in general and paedia-  ��� tricians in particular had been well represented at the course and had contributed  to the discussions extensively. It was obvious from the discussion at the meeting  that there was a very great need to deter-  ��� mine more clearly what constituted normality in the educational development  process, and that while the majority of  children with learning problems could be  handled very effectively and well within  the educational system there remained a  minority whose problems were of such a  nature as to require a well .disciplined and  cooperative team approach applying a  variety of skills both to diagnosis and  treatment.  Prevention received a. good deal, of  attention and it was clear that a great  deal' of research was being done in the  whole area of learning disability and that  much had still to vbe learned about the  problems which,occured. Dr. Thores said  that as far as the average parent of a  child with a learning disability was concerned, this meant that they could take  heart from 'the knowledge that a great  deal' was being done and that, while no  one could make a" child cleverer than he  actually was he could be helped to make  the best. possible adaptation consistent  with his natural abilities. It did seem  reasonable to hope that more resources  would be available to help these children  in future and' that greater cooperation  would develop between the various professions involved as knowledge became  ��� more precise and effective. ���  Dr. Thores said that it seemed obvious  from the meeting that educators in general  felt that class sizes were still too big for  sufficient individual involvement with the  ' child, and that there was still a great need  for special education classes & personnel  who could spend the-time with the child  with learning problems. On the medical  side it appeared'that while again it, was  felt that the, private physician and the  paediatrician could do a great deal to help  by preparing themselves to cope with  these problems presented in their practice,  there was great need for the development  of multi-disciplinary' assssment teams in  major centres, and these were still too  few in number. Dr. Thores mentioned the  .Diagnostic Centre of the Children's Hospital in Vancouver as being a very good  example how such a centre should be  organized and operated and he felt that  Vancouver and British Columbia" were  extremely fortunate to have such a facility  at this stage.  The job of the individual Public Health  Nurse, Dr. Thores feJJ, was to work as  closely as possible on these problems with  , the school teachers and principals in the  area and to maintain good liaison with  the medical community as well. As more  resources and specialized personnel gradually became available, for instance speech  therapists, she would develop working  relations with them and would increasingly become a vital intermediary and  liaison person while maintaining essential  human contact with the child and his  family.

Squaringly yours Senior citizen Assn. notes  ���by Maurice Hemstxeet  AS  I  sit here and  gaze  out  oyer the  great expanse of water of~Davis Bay,  with it's miracle, calm like, trillions of  gallons and peaceful look, it makes you '  wonder how the sea could turn into a  giant, roaring, lashing, bounding, smashing destructive bit of nature that at  times becomes almost an enemy to mankind. Besides all of that, if you fall in,  it's wet.  With that fantastic thought put to  one side, I had best tell you that our first  square dance of the season was without  doubt quite lively, with two sets wheeling and dealing to the exotic calls of  Harry Robertson.  I have to admit that we would have  been short of "square dancers for the two  sets, but due to the good nature of our,  guests, Homer Glass and his son Homer  Glass Jr.  from Ontario, who just happened to pick this time to come out to  their, summer home at Selma Park, and  who just happened to pay the Country  Stars a visit, really made the evening a  success. Well, we hope you enjoyed the<  square , dancing,, and   hope   to   see   you^  again. We do have fun, you know.  I was going to put the rules of square  dancing in this week, but due to a bad '  case of forgetfullness, I forgot to bring  them to my office. That sounds good.  However, pick up a Peninsula Times' next  i week and we will see if my memory  cells have picked up a little more knowledge.  There are times when I get a little  slow on writing this column, or I run  short of material, but this is only a  temporary setback, so I will leave you  now with this thought in mind, With the  world full of pitfalls and tribulations,  thou shall have fun, but not at thy neighbor's expense, Adios amigos.  Editor's note: The following poem by  Andy Randal, Gower Point Road, is appropriate for this space:  Tho Old Square Dance  Oh, how I miss the Old Square Dance,  Of which I doubt I'll get a chance;  For now they've-got for men and misses-  A thing;made up:of bits arid pieces.    ,  I-mean to say, it is a thing, ,  Not tailored to tho Restful swing;   ���  ,    '', ���  The caller says* one swing' that's ail-  Without the swing it ain't no ball.

'  BELIEVE it or not, I have had friends  who did not want to retire because  "I don't know what to do with myself".  The best solution to that problem,  of course, is to go and do something for  someone else. Your, reporter is, however,  suggesting that they-come and join SCA  No. 69 here in Sechelt. Here is a list of  our recent activities and future events.  Sunday, Jan. 6 a good number met at  Sechelt Elementary School for a showing  of films with president Hugh Duff being the operator. The films were all of  great interest to the audience. Following  the films we took time off for- a 'cuppa'  tea and a lot of, visiting with fellow members! Thanks to Mr. Reed and other school  officials were -^expressed for putting the  facilities at our disposal.  Monday, Jan. 7 marked the beginning  of carpet bowling for No. 69.  A goodly number came from Welcome  Beach Community Club to give us a start  and demonstrate the fine points of the  game. After sorting people out and organizing them, into .rinks .we, found we(  had enough players to^use three carpets..  The Sechelt people found that they did  not have to do any heavy lifting or bowling but that a deft touch was an asset.  They also found there was a fair amount  of bending and stooping involved, and  that the whole exercise was really good  fun and fellowship. So the future calls  for carpet bowling every Monday at 2  p.m.  Following the bowling we enjoyed a  very pleasant tea hour with our good  neighbors from Redrooffs and Halfmoon  Bay. Wednesday saw the Senior Swingers under the guidance of Messrs Bush-  ell and Derby really swing out for the  afternoon.  Some come and watch these activities  so that there is a good opportunity for  some friendly visiting on Mondays and  Wednesdays while watching the goings-  on. Now to the future,  The regular monthly meeting will be  held Jan, 17. On Jan. 20 there will be  another social gathering at the Sechelt  Elementary School. Feb, 3 the pupils of  Mrs, Betty Allen will entertain and on  Feb. 17 Frank PostJethwaite is bringing  his' orchestra from Madeira Park for an  afternoon of mUslc, ���  Dave Hey ward continues very busy  and  announces a charter trip to Reno  ��� by Robert Foxall .  leaving Sechelt on March 30 returning a  week later. For those of a more sedate  turn, a trip to Victoria on May 5, 6, and  7. with accommodation arranged for at  the Empress Hotel. More details of both  trips will be given at the regular jneet-  ing.  1 have no reports from the musicians  but I know there must be a lot of practicing in preparation for a concert and  also for the music festival.  MORE   ABOUT. . .  0 Credit Union licencing  ���from pago A-l  a Vancouver daily newspaper) that Gibsons had "thrown out'r the motor vehicle  licencing and insurance functions.  "It just isn't true. We're,still negotiating."  When The Times contacted Sechelt  village clerk Neil Sutherland Saturday  about the report that the driver's licencing  function is being taken from the village,  ha replied: "Hadfield wanted the village"  t6" take "on "all'motor-vehicle functions or  none at all." '  Sechelt Mayor Harold Nelson said that  he was not concerned that all the functions have been dropped from the village  offices.  "J "Now our office clerk can concentrate  on municipal business. There's plenty to  do to keep her busy."  Sechelt municipal office was the only  agency from Port Mellon to Earl Cove  authorized to issue driver's licences. Now  the function will revert to the credit  union which will retain the exclusive fun-,  clion.  However, Pratt said that for the next  six months, licence examiners will continue to operate out of temporary offices'  in the old Canadian Legion hall which  had been leased when facilities became  cramped in Sechelt's municipal office.  After that time, the credit union will  probably prepare offices for the examiners  in the credit union .office, ,  :; In the meantime the following firms'  will sell insurance and licence plates:  ���Gibsons-K.'ButlervRealty Ltd;; J, H.G.!
