Ted Osborne suggested institut-  ���   ing one-hour parking restrictions in the  - downtown area.    .   "  j      ^But Watson felt this  would be too  j.   difficult to enforce.

S_X_HEfl_T���A get-tough attitude combined with home and school education  will go a long way to curtailing the spir-  aling heroin addiction problem in British  , Columbia, the head of the Vancouver drug  squad-.told -Sunshine?,Coast. Lions--1 Club,-.*  members.  . i  S/Sgt.' Sid Devries, addressing more  than 70 Lions and'their wives and guests  in the Peninsula Drive-In Thursday night,  said that there are about 10,000 heroin  addicts in British Columbia. There are  6,500 in Vancouver - a figure which has  doubled since the 1960s - and about 15,000  addicts in Canada.  Devries said that it was up to such  organizations as Lions .clubs and other  service and fratenal groups to put pressure on governments to force them to  pass stringent laws enabling the courts  and police to deal with the addicts.  By making it tough for pushers to  move the product, Vancouver drug squad  officers feel that it will,discourage youngsters from becoming addicted. But Devries agreed, during a question period,  that education must start from the cradle  and that it shouldn't just be left to the  school system to tell of the dangers.  To service Vancouver's, 6,500 addicts,  it costs the city $325;000, in crime every  day to maintain the habits. Current heroin  price is about $25, "and conservatively  speaking, the average addict requires two  .'; caps per day." '  ' "We can, cut off the-supply and drive  up. tho cost and the younger kids, who  won't'be able to afford it, will reconsider  about using drugs.".  There are only 17 members of the Vancouver' drug squad, Devries said, and as  a result of the increase in drug, arrests,  pobce''are''spending more1 working' time  in court which cuts down on enforcement.  "It has caused a heavy back log in the  courts and many, cases have to be set  for trial up to a year in advance. The  offender is placed on bail and continues  to commit crimes against society.  n     "It becomes evident, that conventional  methods used to control our drug problem  have not been successful.* Where do we  go from here?  "As I have explained, the new breed  of addict is not a criminal first, but must  become a criminal to support his habit. It -, _ m ~  is our opinion that this is a medical prob-    \(\   VlHICnlTIP   I OT.'Ct  lem first and foremost and secondly, a    *u   UlUiaUAli��   UUUW  corrupted by the use of drugs."   .      - <  J  Dr. Eric Paetkau suggested to Devriesr  that in spite of 6,500 addicts in Vancouver,  "Perhaps you are , being effective, perhaps^  there could be more addicts, Why aren't;  other kids hooked?','-..'."

But, he added: "the law is there, it is  up to you to see that it is used effective-  son.  "They are' only allowed a 30-foot  entry."  He noted, however, that SMT would  soon be moving out of the depot. "They've  got a brand new place in Vancouver."  * .'Osborne felt that two or three new  shopping-centres would have to be built  in the .village in the next 10 years to  keep, pace with increasing demand.  ,y"And they will have their own park-  ���ihg facilities," he said.  ' The alderman charged that Sechelt's  smaller, s'tores were "trading" on the  parking spaces provided by larger businesses, and'stressed the need for increased  use of parking facilities behind the stores  fronting Cowrie Street.  ��> The situation would be eased, he felt,  iwhen,the.proposed,lane is constructed to,,  _,_,:���_'��� _Y*��_ -^ _____' -___���_.*- 'if%' VL''  SECHELT���The future of Sechelt's1 proposed curling-skating arena is being  endangered by unfounded rumors circulating in the village, according to Aid.  Norm Watson.  He told council's Jan. 16 meeting that  the rumors were "damaging to the integrity of council and harmful to "the (Sunshine Coast Recreation) Association's efforts to progress."  Watson blamed the unspecified rumors  on a general lack of' information on council's role in the project.  In an effort to clarify the situation,  he stressed: /  ���The village will own and hold title  to the arena property and buildings.  ���Council does not anticipate' spending  village funds in either the construction  or operation of the arena. If emergency  funds are required, they will not be  authorized without approval from electors.  ���The village will lease the facilities  to the Sunshine Coast Recreation' Association on a mutually agreed term lease  for a nominal fee.  5 ���The facility will be operated by the  association in accordance with standards  laid down by the provincial government.  ���The association will be required to  present its yearly operating budget for  approval to village council.  Aid. Dennis Shuttleworth felt the association should be given some control  over its fuii_r-_t-p_sent, all funds raised  by the group through debenture sales are  held in trust by the village.  The alderman said it was only reasonable for the association to have a say in  its own financial affairs.  Watson agreed, but stressed that funds  should be disbursed by the group only  in keeping with the overall development  plan for the ice arena.  He reported that a refrigeration compressor suitable for the proposed arena  was available in Vancouver.  The unit, which can produce up to  80 tons of ice per day, was valued at  $30,000 to $40,000 when it was purchased  new one year ago, estimated Watson.  . "It can be bought for $6,000 to $8,000  now," he said recommending a thorough  technical inspection of the compressor  before purchase is considered.  Aldermen agreed to meet with the  recreation association Jan. 22 to discuss  further plans for  the arena.  Under other news, Shuttleworth said  he had taken steps to find out why three  Local Initiatives Program grant applications from the village had been turned  down, while others on the coast had been  approved.  Sechelt earlier applied for LIP funds  to develop district lot 1472 into !a public  park, establish the water table in the  village and take inventory of local emergency measures equipment and supplies.  "I would like to know why the applications were rejected," said Shuttle-  worth, "and I have taken steps to find  out."' ' '  Library committee chairman Watson  predicted that he would have "quite a  selling job" ahead of him to gain regional  district financing for Sechelt library.  But he felt the facility should be operated on a regional district grant system, in preference to provincial Library  Development Commission recommendations for a tax-supported system.  He felt the commission's report, which  has been endorsed by provincial secretary Ernest Hall, was unacceptable.  "Hall's scheme is too grandiose," said  Watson. "It's great for, .the libraries, but  not for the taxpayers. It's another exam-'  pie of crawling bureaucracy."  Watson said he was currently drawing up a library budget to present to the  regional district for consideration.  Shuttleworth reported that his airport  committee was making progress in gaining night landing lights and paving for  the Gibsons:Sechelt airstrip.  "We completed the ministry of transport forms for' paving and lighting and  gave them to (Harry) Olaussen," he said.  "I'm sure he'll assist us in getting it."  But until night landings are possible  at the airport, the alderman warned that  the Peninsula is virtually helpless in the  case of an emergency.    ���  "The people of the Peninsula are imprisoned every night by .the lack of  facilities to cope with emergencies at  night," he said. "We can't get emergency  cases out at night and there is no way  we can get emergency supplies in except by sea.  "I'm certain that Olaussen will help  jn all ways possible to help the citizens  of the Peninsula gain aircraft night landing facilities."  Immediate action urged . . .  iy.::  He was- critical of the courts and the  permissive society for allowing the drug  problem to increase.  Following his talk, Devries exhibited  a display of drug paraphernalia.  Olaussen sets visit  criminal problem. The addict should be  isolated from society and treated. In order  to do, this, proper legislation will have  to be enacted to give the medical authorities the power they need to hold the  addict in custody. Then a fullscale program should be initiated against the drug  trafficker.; :���" ' ������".'.','.,  , ''This program .should inchide the,  police, the courts, and the probation authorities, all cooperating fully. This 'get-  tough' attitude is essential as the trafficker  Is destroying our youth.

Ernie  Booth reported that Sechelt Fire Department had submitted a budget for 1974  very similar to last year's.  "They are in a very satisfactory financial position," Booth, noted.  He felt the fire^ department budget  would be ready for "presentation at council's next meeting,    i  Aid.' Dennis Shuttleworth reported  that planning for an arboretum near the  ���village is "going very nicely."  He predicted that an arboretum would  extend the local tourist season by providing another attraction for visitors.  "It would be good for the shops and  motels on the whole Peninsula and I  hope the businesses get behind us," he  said.  Shuttleworth said he had been invited  to outline details of the proposed arboretum to, Sechelt Garden Club in February,  Council is concerned that Porpoise  Bay may .become polluted by raw sewage discharged from vessels moored at  the government wharf.       ;  In a letter to the department of fisheries, municipal clerk Nell Sutherland  requested a,, copy of relevant' provincial  regulations so that the RCMP could enforce them.  "If none are available by reason of  jurisdictional deficiencies, or non-exlsten?  ce, please say what action is planned to  correct the matter," said Sutherland. '  The clerk noted that Porpoise Bay  forms tho lower end of Secholt Inlet, "so  rocojvos little tidal scouring and appears  all too susceptible to every form of pollution,        ���.,'���'���  "Is your: department aware of this  and what has been or is being done to  protect It,and tho fish creeks feeding it?"  he asked, ���  ,v.Jp$leW,pr!1h noted, that Porpoise Bay  was1-almost totally frozen during tho cold  spoil.

SEOHELT���JSechelt and District Chamber  u'> - ofrComnierce-jcWill/seek,. a. -copy.j_. the  village's bylaws pertaining to parking. '  Members of the chamber are concerned  about added construction of the Bank of  Montreal building and that no action has  ..been taken to provide additional parking.  Executive members of the chamber felt  that immediate, action to alleviate the  parking problem is necessary. A copy of  "the chamber's letter to the village council  will be forwarded to Peninsula Holdings  Ltd., owners of the building.  President Bob Scales said that when  the chamber asked the village council  about parking some months ago, "they  didn't even give us the courtesy of a  reply,"  Miss L. Bisillon reminded chamber  members that for every 1,000 square feet  of floor space, parking for two cars should  be provided, according to village bylaws,  Scales said that at that rate, the Bank  of Montreal has 9.000 square feet, and  there should be space provided for 18  cars.,.-;' ; , '.'.   An accounting of the Bob Cunningham  Memorial Fund will be requested by the  ! chamber. Executive members felt that  as the public was solicited for funds to  finance additional equipment for the  ambulance service,' there should be a  public accounting for the fund.  Why should UfS, warships use Nonoose  Bay as a torpedo firing range? asked Dick  Proctor.- .  Proctor made, reference to an incident  last week when a U.S. ship fired a torpedo on the range which caused a plume  of smpke to rise about/S0Q feet in the air,!  The smoke was spotted by four Secholt  area residents , who reported a flshboat  explosion to tho RCMP, who In turn  passed the report on to tho rescue co-  oi commerce  ordination centre.  ���*< ^'-ih/air-sea rescuesearchwas underway-  until the actual cause of the  explosion  was determined.  Proctor moved with a second by Frode  Jorgensen that a letter be sent to the  federal minister of defence, asking why  U.S. forces use Canadian waters for a  firing range. A copy of the letter will be  forwarded to Harry Olaussen, MP.  Jorgensen moved that B.C. Hydro be  asked for permission to be allowed to  paint numbers on its poles from Langdale  to Pender Harbour to make it easier to  locate individual houses along Highway  101. A 'copy of the letter will be forwarded to the regional district.  Installation dinner of the chamber will  be held within two weeks, Scales announced. The dinner will be held at the Peninsula Drive-In Restaurant.

At a conservative'  $3 per hour, the volunteer time works'  out to over $11,000 but a price can't be  put on someone's comfort or happiness  so the actual value derived really can't  be determined. Besides; we are certain  that although the recorded hours total  over 3,600, there are ma_; -nany hours  that are not recorded. It's not the type of  work where you run off, just because the  whistle blows.  ; Through the Thrift Shop and the hospital Gift Shop and through eaciTof the  auxiliaries,money-making activities, thousands of dollars are raised each year to  buy needed equipment.

MARY GROSS  Sechelt  Lively and refreshing  Editor, The Times  1960's; The people in charge of the'grant  obtained ' by' the Roberts ���'-Creek .based  group, are Mrs-Belinda-MacLeod and Mr.  Ken Dalgliesh, s long-time residents who  have contributed much to the social and  cultural quality.of the Sunshine1 Coast.  Can the-same be said of Aid. Shuttle-  worth?  The committee as a whole decided in  view of the 15 per cent maximum grant-  able to give precedence to social applications���activity centres for--the "young,  etc.���and cultural applications, and^ surely the quality of the Raincoast Chronicles speaks for itself. The committee, including aldermen from,,Powell River and  Williams Lake, educators and an Indian  chief, decided thatj these types of grants  would take precedence over grant applications of a purely municipal nature. To  imply that this decision was reached with  some-malice in mind towards the municipality of Sechelt is absurd.

Project application '3X-1172,' for development of a public park by Sechelt  Council on PL 1472, far from being shot  down, was one of those accepted by, the  CAG but not funded by Ottawa. Another  of Sechelt council's applications was  knocked out before reaching the CAG  because it failed to meet basic requirements.

There may be no doubt in Alderman  Shuttloworth's mind, conditioned as it is  this', committee, being themselves -aldermen.  As a member of the committee' I expressed- strong objections to' the way the  situation was presented to the nominated  committee members. First we were presented with a list of 100' perfectly valid  and acceptable applications for grants', already voted by Manpower. Then we were  told that no one yet knew how much  money the Liberal government was going to make available but that a maximum of 15 per cent would 'be approved  irrespective of the merits of the outlined  projects. I felt at the time that committee  members volunteering their time were being used as focal points for the, disappointment and blame from rejected grant  seekers. Events seem to have borne me  out. " ,  ,  Let me say categorically and clearly  the nominating committee rejected no applications. Our lowest category waa acceptable. We found none not acceptable.  But   the   government,  encouraged   with  Consumers should demand it.  The next time Super-Valu has 'sold  out' of one of their specials, consumers  can obtain a rain check for that item.

Cancer facts  CANADIANS have made many notable  contributions  in cancer research,  according to the Canadian Cancer Society.  Radioautography, for instance, was  developed by Dr. C. E. Leblond of Mc-  Gill University. This is a method of incorporating radioactive isotopes into tissues and exposing microscopically thin  slices of this tissue on photographic film.  What happens is that the film shows  an outline of the cell structure because  the radiation from the isotopes exposes  the film in the same way that light does.  Radioautography permits the study of  cell processes, both normal and cancerous  and has become an important diagnostic  aid in tracing the spread of cancer.

There  were 67 women present with good repre-  sentation from each of the six auxiliaries to St. Mary's.  Volunteer director Mrs. Peggy Connor  chaired the meeting with - the assistant  volunteer " director taking - the minutes.  The first report was an accounting for  the year of the activities which were done  by Jhe volunteers.  Extended care: Two volunteers go  each morning to -assist the activity aide,  Lillian Peters by helping with games or  handicraft and sometimes for this portion, seeing there is someone available  , each day. ���       ..,.->.,  The hairdressers, none professionals,  go each Tuesday and Thursday. Under  the direction of Mrs. Muriel Eggins, star-  1 ting early in the morning, they give the  women patients a lift with a hairdo. Even  when one is well, this is good therapy.  More volunteers are needed in this department, even if they just assist it is a  big help.  Baby, photos: For that first shot at  the new offspring, Mrs. Rosa Swan and  her helpers will go in and take a picture  or as many ��� as requested.  Library-cart: The cart is being customized to better suit the needs of the  hospital. In the meantime, Mrs. Ada  Dawe sees to the distribution of new magazines in the hospital.  Flower care: Violet Woodman reported in place of Mrs. Evelyn Ashton that  there were not many flowers to see to in  the wards at this time. The usual pro-'  cedure is to refresh the bouquets and  water the plants. Mondays and Thursdays are flower days.'  Physiotherapy ��� An bh-caU dep^tment  looked after by Mrs, Faye Lewis which  works in well with her knowing the  physiotherapist.  ,, .;,  Transportation:   Taking   patients   to  , dentists, out for an evening's entertainment such as when they, ore guests of the  Legion, or Christmas, shopping sprees.  Then there are other times volunteers  are .called upon ond happy are they, that  It is so. Thoy decorate trees, give special  attention to an extra lonely patient, shopping trips, etc.   .  A'"new program' in pediatrics under  chairmanship of Mrs. Ina Grafe has,already proven to bo a great help.  Last but far from tho least of nil departments, is the gift shop. Mrs. Made-  lino Grose, chairman for the last two  years, has gone through tho growing  pains of tho J now shop in tho foyer of  tho hospital.  Dally except Sunday, women in red  ~ oporthtfshopar 3 p:mt carrying itema of  interest to- patients and to visitors, as  won as staff. All auxiliaries take part  with each group doing a day a week.  A cart is taken around the wards for  the convenience of the patient. The many  handicraft articles that are great sellers  include beautiful baby sets. One woman  last year made 203 poodles by herself  as well as tea cosys and other items.  Mrs.1 Grose said in her report it is  most gratifying that the shop functions  so smoothly when one considers how  many different persons ate involved. It  was both a privilege and a pleasure to  pioneer this venture and see it established and she expressed her personal  thanks to all who helped her.  Reports  were given by each of the  volunteer    chairmen.   Pender*  Harbour:  Mrs. Alice Haddock said considering the  distance some of. the volunteers have to^  travel,'it1 is"amazing how much each one'  does.  Halfmoon Bay:, Mrs. Frances Cook;  Sechelt: Mrs. Eve Moscrip;' Roberts  Creek: Mrs. Betty Merrick; Gibsons:  Mrs. Elsie Willis and Mrs. Winnifred- El-  rich. Port Mellon report was presented by  Mrs. Margaret Swan in place of Mrs/  Rita Hincks.  Lunch was a back-to-school paper bag  affair with coffee and tea served by Mrs.  Margaret Humm and Mrs. Dorothy Carter.  Guests for lunch period were Mrs.  Irene Donlon,- director of nursing; Mrs.  Dana Kearney, head nurse from the fjtrst  floor; Mrs. Rona-May Pockrant, head  nurse, second floor and Lillian Peters,  activity aide.  There was a question-and-nnswer time  and by words and manner the feeling  that came through from the nurses was  , they were thoroughly pleased with the  assistance and work pf the volunteer  workers.   ;> ���'"''''.,.    ���'; ��� "  Mrs; Dbnloh who claimed "to bo no  speaker then efficiently went on to speak  well on the needs and workings of the  hospital. The proposed education program  for keeping staff up with latest methods  and techniques and orientation of new  ptaff is something to \ give good thought  to see if .auxiliaries can assist, she said.  This will bo discussed at the auxiliary  meetings.  , Thanks wore expressed to tho director  ol nursing and hor staff for giving up  their lunch hour to be with us and tell-  , ing what further manner we can bo of  assistance,  The  recorded  number  of  hours  for  ' 1973 wore 3,007 and 2,10 volunteers.

B.C.  IN ADDITION to a tax on capital gains,  tax reform has produced three significant changes in the income .tax treatment of investments in real estate. ^  The position of the land speculators  and developers remains relatively unchanged, at least for income tax purposes, but  the investor is faced with a series of  changes which have greatly altered his  tax position. <  The first significant change denies the  deduction of interest and property taxes  on vacant land to the extent that it did  not produce income. In other words, if  the land generated some income, sufficient interest expense and property taxes  nay, be claimed to reduce the income to  iii. However, to,the extent,these carrying "charges exceed income from the land  they are not allowed as current deductions,  but  must  be   added  to  the  cost  base of the land. This addition will oper-  ��� ate  to" reduce  the  capital gain  on  the  ultimate disposition of the land.    _lJ_  The second change limits the amount  of oapital cost allowance (tax depreciation)  which individuals may claim in respect of  rental buildings. _ Under the former act  taxpayers were permitted to claim capital  cost allowance, and create losses which  they could offset against other sources of  income such as business or employment  income.  Under the new restrictions a taxpayer  may reduce his rental income to nil  though his capital cost allowance claims,  but he may not create a loss from rental ���  properties by claiming capital cost allowance in respect of the building. This  restriction applies to a taxpayer's total  rental income, not each individual property.  Accordingly, a taxpayer can pool his  capital cost allowance claims for purposes  or reducing his rental income from one  building through a capital cost allowance  claim on another building.  The capital cost allowance restrictions  apply only to real estate nnd not to other  classes of depreciable property such as  machinery and equipment.^ This has led  some individuals to seek a,tax advantage  by investing in other depreciable assesta  which provide the write-offs for tax purposes now denied to investors in rental  real estate." -  The third major change in the rules  relating to real estate investments requires thnt each rehtnl building purchased  nC|ci\ Jnnuary 1, 1072 nnd costj^g $50,000  or moro must bo placed in a fccpnrnto  depreciation class. .       '       .',���.'  Tho effect of this separation Into different ' classes has boon to ensure that  depreciation wl)l be recaptured In respect  of onch building at tho tlmo it is sold.  This differs from tho old system whoro  ��� it w��s<possible* to defer-the ronllzatlon-of  recaptured doprQcla^orf~by merely pur-  chntimg ' another building of tho soma  class In tho same taxation year,  Thus, tlio real CHtnto Investor who la  contemplating "stepping up" his inye.it-  i fa��� ���- mi- "i��� .i..*m-^-^��i-.-������ i - ������������-.-.-��� ���������in -��� - ���-    -���' i' ��� i  *���  1970 Jeep reported  stolen from hotel  GIBSONS���-RCMP are on the lookout for  < ft 1070 Jeep which was reported stolon  Jan, IS from tho Peninsula Hotel.

Although the changes in our tax laws  have, eliminated much of the previous  tax advantage, investment in real estate  still^offers the economic advantages helpful in' combating the inflationary erosion  of investment capital. -  "I'D BATHER FI6HT  [HANSMCH!"  From the pulpit  ���by Pastor Gerry Foster,  Gibsons Pentecostal Church  IN THE Bible we find these words, "God  did  not  leave Himself  without witness, for He did good and gave you rains  and  -fruitful" seasons, - satisfying   your. -  hearts with food and gladness."  Regarding this statement, we can apply it to ourselves and examine our  our hearts to see how often our thoughts  have been directed toward God in times  of abundance and plenty, in times of joy  and gladness. Not very often for many,  I'm afraid. We take the credit for our  good fortune and blame God when things  go bad.  But we can join the above with another portion of Scripture found in Bo-  mans which says, "Do you presume upon  the riches of His kindness and patience?  Do.you not know that God's kindness is  meant to lead you to repentance?" Just ���  prior to this, the writer was speaking of  God's judgment, which many laugh at  or lightly dismiss, because God has never  judged them. But the point is that God  is showing kindness and patience toward  you by witholding His wrath, But if you  continually turn a deaf ear to Him you  are, the Bible says, "storing up wrath  for yourself." .   .  God is giving you day after day of  grace. Christ awaits your decision to receive Him. He blesses you in many ways;  start returning His love to Him.  esrawiTSS^asas^aBSsai  WIHSOW CREEK  cbMUMliT .CENTRE  Announces the  opening of its  <  ot the Wilson Creek Holl on  Davis Bay Road.

It is not  Honne Lfdlo  Serving the Sunshine Coast  24 hours a day.  A COMPLETE FUNERAL  OR MEMORIAL SERVICE  AT MODERATE COST.  Member of  British Columbia Funeral  Service Association.

Roy Parkins, Owner-Manager  at all ^unusual to find that land- which  sold for a few dollars an acre 10 or 15  years ago costs hundreds or even thousands of dollars per acre today. And this  trend is not ��� decreasing. Indeed investors  in many foreign ��� countries are -turning  with increasing interest to our province  as a prime area for land speculation.  This situation, while it is a happy one  for those few who are fortunate enough to  hold large tracts oflanji - :������ ses an ever-  increasing problem to many of our citizens - and most particularly to our young  people, whose hopes and aspirations are  so often dependent oh procuring a parcel  business venture.  It is for this reason that I believe we  must take steps to make leases of crown-  land available, and at the same time, see  to it that no further crown lands are sold  to private persons or companies.  If our land resources are so obviously,  valuable that wealthy syndicates abroad  are competing to buy them, then it is clearly our responsibility to ensure that the  -birthright of our children, and our children's children - the very land into which  they were born - is not sold away from  them.  Our government under Premier Dave  Barrett has already taken firm steps  to preserve our precious farm land and  many .of the areas with magnificent recreational potential. We have also taken  steps to preserve wilderness areas which  are so important to the many wildlife  species of which B.C. is so justly proud.  These steps, while absolutely essential  to the future happiness and,prosperity of  our people, do in the short run tend to  increase the scarcity of land for many  legitimate purposes  and to push prices  Don Lockstead  Page B-4 The Penfas_t_ Ttessa  Wednesday, January 23, 1974  even-higher. This is why T believe that  we must move quickly to make much,  more laase land available.  There is a tendency, I know, for some  of us tc feel that a long term lease is  -inferior to' a deed- of ownership." This is  hot necessarily tvue. Lease arrangements  can be made with clauses to protect the  lease holder so that the lease is every  bit as effective in meeting the holder's  needs as a, deed of^ ownership.   "  No on;s ever really owns land in the  sense of "forever" anyway. Ownership is  merely the right to the unrestricted upe  of something - and this right is qmte  adequately conferred by means of a lease.  Now, it is obvious that private land"  will still be available for sale, regardless  of whatever measures are taken by your  government to make' leases more available.  But the important, thing is that an  alternative must be found, to the paying  of more and more outrageous prices for  land, to the detriment of most of us, and  to the benefit of a few speculators - many  of whom have not even seen the land they  so profitably buy and sell.'  I am not arguing for the abolition of  private property. I am only asking for  the provision of an alternative '-��� one  which, by its very existence, will tend  to hold down land prices.  In the words of Henry George, "Land  is a commodity like no other; if is in  all . . . The land of every country belongs  of right to all the people of that country  ���and cannot be alienated by one generation. Private ownership of land has no  more foundation in morality or reason  than -private ownership of air or water."

Why don't they number the pages of  The Times consecutively, not A and B and  clearly mark eachpage in the same upper  outside corner, so that when an article  is continued from one page to' another  it is easy to find?  That's a good question. One of the  reasons'for the section numbering is because The Times' press cannot take more  than an eight-page section and therefore  must divide the paper into sections.  When the first section is being made  up, compositors are not certain how irikny  pages there will be and it is uncertain  whether a section will be eight pages or  six. Two six-page sections .total 12 pages  but an eight page and a six toal 14'. As  .both sections are being made up at the  same time, its difficult to number them  consecutively. I hope,that's clear.  As to the second portion of the question, we try to keep all datelines and page  - numbers on the outside corners but if an  ad; or a picture, runs all the way to the  top, it bumps-the dateline and its moved  to next closest top spot.  I Another question, from the same party  concerns the bus .depot.  Why don't they make sure that there  are no burned-out- light bulbs in the  washroom? And, why don't they always  keep toilet paper in the washrooms?  The person says she is hesitant to use  public facilities in the dark. The company  has been reminded of these problems,'  "but employees more or less laugh it off."  Here's another and' one we can bat  over to Postmaster Sid Callin's court.  Why don't they put a mailbox in the  Trail Bay Shopping Centre?  Now that question is a winner. How  about it, Sid.  In answer to one" question I had about  - Sechelt ad its unmarked crosswalks, village clerk Neil Sutherland sent along a  clipping from the White Rock Sun reporting a council meeting.  , Surrey's municipal engineer said that  marked crosswalks do just the opposite  of what they are intended to do. The__  injure and kill more people.than do any  other' street crossing areas and their  victims are the very young and the very  old.  A study, said 'the engineer, showed  accidents twice as high at marked crosswalks.  "The dangers at crosswalks consist  mostly of carelessness by pedestrians when  they beilieve all traffic will stop for  them."  ���       *       *  ��� The Sunshine Coast has another claim  to fame.,  The notorious Crippen murder case,  which received world-wide publicity  shortly after the turn of the century,  proved radio to have enormous potential,  in the battle against crime. ���>   .  Dr. Crippen, it will.be remembered,'  poisoned shis wife in England and set sail  for Canada to start a new life. Unfortunately, radio waves" travel, faster than the  average ship, and Crippen was arrested  at the other side.  The case was' remarkable in that it  demonstrated ��� the first effective use of  radio to apprehend a criminal.  Crippen's saga stretched from England,  across the Atlantic, to Canada. And now,  Gibsons can lay. claim to^^a^connection  with it.  Local carpenter Larry- Porter  that ��� when that all-important radio  sage was relayed alongt elephone lines?  in Canada to the immigration authorities,  his  mother,' then  Gertrude  Brook, was  chief night operator in Montreal.  Because the message was so vital, chief  operators   were  called   in' to   handle  it  personally, and Porter's mother happen-'  ed to be on duty at the time.  It was not until 20 years later that  Porter learned of his mother's involvement in the case,     i  As Larry says: "If my mother had got  .   a   wrong  number,   Crippen  might  well  have escaped justice,"  John Wayne not charged  with break-in, theit  SECHELT���In last week's issue, we reported   that   John   Wayne   Peterson  pleaded guilty at provincial court to a  charge   of   breaking   and   entering   and  theft.  This should'haye read James Wayne'  'Peterson, ..'��� " ,' '"   ;' , \   ''"'':  We apologize for any embarasment this  may h.ave caused.  ". . . YOUR department has done an excellent" job in protecting life and property . . . Your assistance and co-operation  is greatly- appreciated."  Those are excerpts from a letter recently received by Bill Bomford, our  local fire chief from the district manager  of B.C. Hydro. And they refer to the de- ,  partment's action- on Nov." 19,' when' a  power line came down on the road bet- '  ween the elementary school and the B.C.  forest. office.  > The local volunteer firemen certainly'  keep busy .on our behalf. They're recently  been   spending   evenings -completing" a  piece of equipment for the new fire hall.'  And they are shortly to begin a St. John's   -  Ambulance  first  aid   course, .under "the  instruction of Joan Cunningham-of Cunningham's Ambulance in Halfmoon-Bay.  If. any, of you are interested in under-,  taking this internationally recognized and  valuable   course ��� yourselves,   you   could  attend classes with the firemen. Fee is  $10.   For details,' call Joan Cunningham  at 885-9927{}��r-' "  The other news of the fire department  is that they have already received from  the Lions Club some of the equipment"  which was to be purchased out of the  proceeds of the car raffle. Although the  raffle receipts are not all in yet, of course,  the Lions apparently decided that an  - emergency might not-wait and it would be  sensible to get the firemen equipped as  scon as possible. _ -_     _  So they provided two oxygen bottles,  a regulator, and "a mask for the Garden  Bay detachment, and a spare oxygen  bottle for Madeira Park, which had previously bought a regulator, mask and one  bottle.     -  Muriel   Cameron   tells   me   that" the  Pender Harbour Community Club execu-,  tive.meeting was held on Jan. 8, and a  vote of thanks was' tendered to Wendy  Lee and Lorna Clayton for their part in  organizing the New Years Eve dance.  The club urgently needs help to' continue to serve the community. The hall  is maintained entirely by the work of  volunteers who give their time to ensure  there is a building available for the use  of groups within the area, but since we  all benefit, it seems unfair that a small  group should take ��� on all the " respon-  sibilil^for us. If'you are not a member  of the club,.now is the time to consider  joining.  A membership drive is conducted early  each year; dues ( $2 single member, $3  family membership) may be sent directly  to the secretary or the treasurer, Kay  White (883-9987) or Muriel Cameron (883-  2609). .    ,    ,  Next Sunday,^Jan. 27, is the annual  general meeting of the club. It will be  held in the Community Hall af 2 p.m.  and it is hoped there will be a good turn- ���  out. This is the meeting at which a new -her son beside her again,  executive will be elected for 1974.    The executive is made up of 12 members. To be eligible for office, one must  have been a member in good standing  before the previous April 30.  And, of course, to be eligible to,vote,  one must be a member in good standing, '  of at least 30 days. Let's all resolve to  be on hand on Sunday to- demonstrate  that we do appreciate all this club contributes to the community.  .   Practical  help   for   this   organization  could take many forms. There is equipment���pool tables,  roller  skates,   carpet  bowling equipment���which1 could be put  to good use' if someone were willing- to  undertake   the   organizational   arrange-  lents.  The annual bazaar is held in May, and  iat means this is the time to be sewing,  knitting, embroidering, making garden  ornaments, starting house plants; or just  saving, ."white elephants". And another  way to further the work of the group  is by attending the weekly bingo on  Thursday evenings. The larger the attendance, the more worthwhile the prizes,  by Kathleen Yull 883-9068  so this woi!:s lo the advantage of-every-  6ne. '.  So come on, all you Harbour residents.  Lei's get behind--the Pender Harbour Community Club and help get it rolling! Let's  make the word "community" meaningful! - '  ^A week ago Sunday the group of  people in the.area who are interested in  inaugurating a local drama club met at  the home of Pat arid John Kelly. There  was .a surprisingly large turn-out, testifying to the' amount of real interest in this <  project, arid a club' was formed, with John  Breen as president and Jan Jacobson as  secretary treasurer.  The first action of the newly-formed,1*  Club was a decision to produce a play  in the spring of 1974. The play is I'll Remember you Love in my Prayers," written by John Kelly. Kris Krimmel has  been named director. I've read the play,  and it's an excellent one. Good luck to  the new club���it hasn't chosen a name  yet. '  Carol Maynard tells me that the library  has received a new shipment of books. I  looked it over myself, and .there a!re  some good titles among the new_arrivals.v  One that sticks in my memory is Harry  Black by Walker���if you haven't read it,  you should. It's a great story.  But that's only one of many good  books, some fact and some fiction, that  are " available at-our library. It's open  Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday afternoons. Why not look in there soon?  ;' And, as,usual, my final item comes  from Egmont. A cougar has been reported  prowling in that area. He visited Ernie  Silvey's place on the north side of the  Inlet, as well as several places on the  south side, including the fish farm down  near Earls Cove. Two dogs were killed  in tha Egmont area.  It fascinates me to think of this huge  beast so close at hand,* and I would love  to catch sight of him. Not too close, mind  ���and not when I'm all alone and it's  dark. But from a safe distance in daylight, it would be a real thrill to see a  cougar.  And that's not quite my final item. I  feel I should let you in on the secret of  who that was you saw driving around in  a gold Cadillac last week. I expect you  thought it was some visiting dignitary;  perhaps a^countess or even a member of  some rbyalffarnily. Not at all���it was our  own Win Course! And Win was riding  with her son Kenneth and his wife Jo.  Kenneth and Jo have just returned  from a ten-month tour of the British  Isles and Europe���and places as far distant as the Canary' Islands���and they  came up from Vancouver in that gold  Cadillac to visit with Rod and Win. I'll  bet Win felt like a countess anyway, with  WHEN you make use qf a parking lot,,  do you keep alert to the special hazards? ^     ' '  If parking lot" accidents are to be av-,  oided, regulations must be followed ,and  courtesy must prevail;    ���  lr-First of all, keep your speed low.  The absence of posted speed limits does  not mean ��� you have a license to speed.  You never know when someone might  step into your path. -    -  2. Lane's leading to parking spaces  often are posted for one-way travel to  avoid- confusion. It is important that these  restrictions be followed; Don't ever drive  into  an ^exit of  a one-way' lane, disre  garding the arrow that points 'out' instead  of 'in'. This could' foul up a whole line -  of traffic. '-��� !  3. When you park in a parking lot to.  make deliveries, make sure your- vehicle  does not block an entrance or exit. People who use/parking lots usually are-in  "a hurry, either to get in and leave their  car, or to retrieve it, and drive out. A  ' blocked lane is hard- on nerves!  4. When you make even a brief stop  in a parking lot, it is far better to find  a marked parking slot.  5. When driving in a parking lot,  drive very slowly and watch at all times  for pedestrians-who may dart across your  path.  For Quick Results  Use Times  Adbriefs *  Let us show you how to  defer your income fax.  *  Do_you want to pay, less income tax for 1973? Of course you do! Then why not take a  few moments to drop in and talk about Registered Retirment Savings Plans.  Here's how they work. Under the present income tax'tegulations you are entitled to set  aside a tax-deferrable amount for your .retirement years. This amount is 20% of your  earned income up to a maximum of $2,500 for people who already participate in a  company pension plan and up to $4,000 for self-  employed people.  These tax deferrals, together with any  income and capital gains they earn, don't  "  become taxable until you withdraw them;  and if you wait until you retire, chances are  -your tax rate will be, lower than it is now.  So you defer income tax today and you build  a nest egg for tomorrow.  We can help you chart your R.R.S.P.  program. Don't let this opportunity slip by.  Your plan must be registered before the end -  of February to qualify for your 1973 tax  deferral.

'   '  Representing all local agencies and  professional groups, the Sunshine Coast  Coordination Committee for Health and  Human Resources has as its objective the  improvement of .the quality of living-for]  many persons in the community.  "There' are agencies here who are  very active in the task of helping others,"  said member John MacLeod, representing  the school board, "but there is still a  lack of many services that may be provided through this;new group."       __  The committee .plans' to examine the  need for services to provide transportation  for older citizens to keep hospital and  doctors' appointments, a senior citizen  drop-in centre, Big Brothers services,  homemakers, day care centres, meals on  wheels, mental health assistance and a  guidance service for young people. The  committee is already engaged in establishing an information and counselling  centre. There are may such centres in  B.C., MacLeod added, which are being  staffed by trained, volunteer workers and'  by professionals. x  "The department of ,health is very  interested in the creation of the committee and is prepared to assist in the financing," he said.  ho hatchery  JLJ-^Ml     IE* iW J_^a__^^��_,_!,,  ��?;������"' _(*p_rv__^aWWlKT,"!<t'i}"'�� B  ��      >  We believe  by Nonavee Jones  Church   of   Jesus   Christ of   Laiter-Day  Saints  BEFORE Jesus  began his ministry, he  came from Galilee to Jordon and requested baptism of John the Baptist.  "But John1 forbad him, saying, I have  need to he baptized of thee, and comest  thou to me?"  "And Jesus answering said unto him,  Suffer it to be so now: for thus it be-  cometh us to fullfill all righteousness."  (Matthew 3:14, 15).  Some may think that baptism is not  essential. Why then did the Son of God  need to be baptized? The Savior's words  to Nicodemus make this question clean  "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the  Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom  of God." (John 3:5).  Since baptism is necessary for entry  into the kingdom Of God, the Savior complied and fulfilled all righteousness.  "And straightway coming up out of the  water, he saw the heavens opened, and  the Spirit like a dove descending upon  him: \ :' *  "And there came a voice from heaven  saying, Thou are my beloved Son,' in  whom I am well pleased." (Mark 1:10, 11).  Immersion as the proper method of  baptism was clearly demonstrated. Note  the words: "And .straightway coming up  out of the water", indicating that he had  been immersed in the water.  Also on this occasion, we - recognize  two other members of the Godhead, the  Father and the Holy Spirit, giving approval of the third member, Jesus Christ  and of his baptism.  In baptism Jesus humbled himself; he  obeyed the commandments; he showed  us the way. His baptism also tells us that  there are three members of the Godhead:  the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  The Book of Mormon, written by ancient prophets ���on the American continent,  gives us more information on baptism.  When Christ visited America soon after  his resurrection, he spoke to the prophet  ' Nephi, saying, "... I give unto you,power  that ye shall baptize this people when I  am again ascended into heaven." (3 Nephi  11:26).  Jesus then called others and gave them  authority to baptize. He told them the  words to say and how to do it:  "And then shall ye immerse them in  water and some forth again out of the  water,, And after this manner shall ye  baptize In my name," (3 Nephi 11:27),  Following the instructions and example of the Savior, we believe ,that baptism by immersion by those having authority is necessary for admission into the  kingdom of God,  OCTOBER, November period of the "tagged salmon head7 recovery program  has been slower than the summer months,  but enough heads are being returned to  give good information on winter movements of hatchery raised coho and chinook  salmon, said fisheries officials.  A total of~ 177 heads" were" turned~"irr  to fisheries service head depots (59 coho,  117 chinook and one "masu" salmon) of  which 148 contained coded wire-tags (52  coho, 95 chinook, and one "masu" salmon).  The "masu" salmon is ,a western Pacific  species which does not occur" naturally  on this side of the Pacific. Washington  Department of fisheries have transplanted  some of these to its Minter' Creek hatchery. All salmon were identified as tagged by the absence of the*' adipose fin,  the small fleshy fin on the back just in  front of the tail fin. Each head turned in  with a tag received a $3 reward.  Mrs. Pearl Pellow and Henry White  both of Victoria were the two lucky $100  bonus draw winners for October, November.  Mrs. Pellow's salmon,  a 2 year old  coho released  by the fisheries research  board  in jRosewall  Creek,   was  caught  near Bowser and the head turned in at  ���McCabe's Trailer Park at Qualicum Bay.  White's fish, a two-year old chinook  salmon released from the Green River  hatchery in Washington, was caught at  Sheppards Point in Saanich Inlet and the  head turned in at Brentwood Boat Rentals in Saanich Inlet.  The northward movement of chinook  salmon still seems to be the dominant  pattern, although there seems to be less  fish in the extreme northernmost parts  of their earlier ranges  It may be that the chinook which go  farthest north are*those which go out  of the Gulf of Georgia the rest remain  and became part of the resident population.  Cohos were caught in moderate numbers, all along the western side of the  Gulf of Georgia. This indicates that coho  spread both north and south from their  release! site* rather "than simply, going  north, as do chinook. Canadian hatchery  fish still' show imost strongly/in areas  north of Nanaimo and Vancouverv ,"  Local depots for the return of'heads  of adipose-clipped chinook and coho,are'  as follows:' .,' ^ ' .  -Gibsons Esso Marine;  _f _____��, aaori _____*, jumv -.  ���Trait Bay Sports Unlimited (Seehelt);  .
