GIBSONS—J. Harvey Department store
on Gower Point Road was gutted by
fire in the early hours pf Feb. 23, destroying the building.and all its stock.
Store owner, John; Harvey, estimates
- the- loss -at *'over-J$250,000r- v~~ ' "*"
Flames burned' through into the .adjoining building, causing • damage to the
school district offices' and Kruse Drugs.
The alarm was raised at 2:40 a.m. by
Mrs. Carole Brakstad of Bay Road.
"I heard a snapping, crackling noise
and ran to window to look and see what
was going on. I saw a building on fire
and said to my husband, "My God, Harvey's or Kruse Drugs is on fire'."
Then she called the fire department.,
"The  building  was' totally  involved'
when we .arrived," said fire chief Dick
Ranniger.
■ Three units from the Gibsons department and two from Roberts Creek:had
the blaze under, control within 45 minutes
and, miraculously, stopped it from spread-
, ing to the adjoining premises.
In the school board office; above
Kruse Drugs, flames broke through the
wall and damaged both the,board room
, and the office of the secretary-lxeasurer.
But school board chairman, Agnes,
Labonte, told The Times Sunday that the'
district's maintenance crew had erected
a temporary wall and it would be "business as usual" Monday. ,
.. ', "We feel very fortunate that the fire
department managed to save the buildings on either side of rtarvey's," she said,
"Someone called me during the fire and'
when I saw the flames, my heart sank,
I thought our building was gone, too."
,, In a letter to tho editor In, this week's
issue, Mrs. ILabonte praises the if ire department for its efforts, ,
Firemen recall ■seeing a ladder propped up against the outside wall of the
department store when thoy arrived, Ranniger sold that arson has not been ruled
out and ROMP ore Investigating,
Tho fire chief ia anxloua to see any
photographs that were taken of the fare
by onlookers. He can be contacted at
886-2323.

fof the Sechelt and Districtv Chamber of
i'Commerce tonight at 7:30, at the Bank

I President Bob Scales, in announcing -
\jhe meeting, said that one of-the duties
i,of the chamber, according to its' bylaws,
'is to "promote and improve trade and
^-commerce and the economic, civic and
^social welfare of Sechelt and the sur-
- grounding "district."
' \     "First we must decide whether or not
.^we want to promote Sechelt and district,
.Scales said, "and if we do, just we must
^decide just what aspects we'should promote. •

' guests to our next general meeting and
.we would hope that chamber members
'will attend to air their views and assist

Planned goal
iTAG day's held in Gibsons and Sechelt
$ on' Saturday "exceeded our anticipated
.result,"' said John Lewis, chairman of the
' '.transportation committee of the council
[of .human resources.
•' The/tag days and forthcoming fund-
; raising' "fevents are intended to raise
'f $10,000'to purchase a mini-bus to pro-
-.vide transportation to Sunshine - Coast
residents: to enable them to meet hospital, medical, dental and other appointments. \
;.    Lewas expressed his appreciation for
the "tremendous .support you gave us on
jour tag "day on Saturday, Feb. 23. We
' exceeded   our   anticipated   result.   With
'support "such as this, we will get our bus!
• i< "I would also like, to add our deep
^^reciation   of   the   help   we  received
'from the" girl guides arid all those other
-ladies that helped send ,the campaign off
with a resounding 'bang."
■>,    Lewis   said  that   other  activities   to
raise money are planned and will be announced in forthcoming editions of The
*Times.   -  .:        \~< ■' .V-    •"''
A DOCTOR will be on duty at St. Mary's
Hospital for emergency calls every
night, Dr. Eric Paetkau told The Times.
The new , type of medical coverage
has been instituted on a trial basis and
it's intended that a doctor will be acces-*
sible on an emergency situation'at all
times, The doctors serving the Sunshine
Coast worked out the arrangement and
it takes effect after normal business
hours at the Sechelt and Gibsons medical
clinics.
If a doctor is< required after normal
business hours or' on -holidays, when the
clinics would normally be closed, persons should-call the hospital where help
will be available.    ^
In most' instances, said Paetkau, persons needing medical- attention will be
~ able "to arrive at St." Mary's by their own
' names and a doctor will be available to
treat them. If, however, in the case of
heart attacks, accidents or other similar
life-threatening    situations,  the  on-duty
doctor will dispatch another doctor to
the scene'and the duty doctor will remain at his post in order to treat ambulatory patients.
"This way we hope to offer better
service to the people of the Sunshine
Coast," Paetkau said. "In the previous
method, doctors were on call every fourth
' night. That meant that after a full shift
at the clinic and the hospital, a doctor
would be on call all night and then return to his normal shift which meant
being on duty for more than 30 hours
straight. This way means that a doctor
will be on emergency duty only every
eighth night."
Paetkau explained that this system
is on trial and will be reconsidered in
April.
St. Mary's telephone number, for after-business hour emergencies, is 885-
2224. Sechelt clinic is 885-2257 and Gibsons clinic is 886-2221 during regular
business hours.
By-laws heed completion
SECHELT—The village requires the services of Sunshine' Coast Regional District planner Peter Hoemberg, Aid. Norm
Watson told the council last week.
"We are entitled to a certain amount
of his time. Cuylits (former district planner Ed Cuylits) gave us quite a break
with his time. He was a well-motivated
young man who didn't watch the clock
and he did quite a bit for this village.
"I can't possibly see how regional district planning can have as big a load this
year as it did last year," Watson told
council and he referred to the Highway
101 study, the land freeze and other problems that arose.
"We're rapidly running out "of industrial and semi-industrial zoning in the
village," Watson said and he urged that
the regional district give some consideration to the provision of an industrial
zone on the east side of the Indian reserve on East Porpoise Bay Road.
"B.C. Hydro is buying all available
industrial land in the village and we need
a back-up site," he added.-
Aid. Ted Osborne agreed that the area
should look to the future, "we need a
couple of hundred acres of industrial
land."
Watson said that a proposal to the
Indian band by Regional board chairman
Frank West regarding sewers should be

work with merchants and property owners to develop parking. ,       '

PROCTOR
GIBSON'S—Aid'.' Kurt Hoehne admitted
to a meeting1 of Gibsons Voters'^Association that he was ill-informed about
local finances when he ran for council
last year on a "Keep Down Taxes"
ticket.
, like most Gibson^ residents, said the
alderman;) lie was unaware of the large
expenditures required to maintain and
improve village services.
Hoehne was speaking, to the group
Feb/21 on major tax increases proposed
by, council,., '■;,     ■. ,',' \ -',,''/'
He reported that, council, earlier that
evening, had 'authorized an Increase in
the water rate from $3 to $45 per year,
coupled with a higher cbnnection fee—
$150 compared to $100 previously.
Hoehne said that the Elphinstone Secondary School'fire in June pinpointed
the need for extensive improvements to
lihe village water system, and the water
rate had been raised to pay for the
$200,000 upgrading project,
"Llko everyone,else, I was very happy
with a $30 per year water rate," ho
said, "But that wris unrealistic by today's prices. Everything, has gone up
except our water, rate."
And ho cautioned: "Tho days of cheap
taxes in Gibsons aro over,"
NEW ASSOCIATION
Gibsons Voters', Association was formed last month to provide a voice for local
• residents, ,
Tho name waa chosen In preference to
Olive Manton and Fred Cruise. They
join the previously elected executive of
Vic Eckstein, chairman; Amy Blain, secretary and Nelson Moore, vice-chairman.
Members expressed concern about the
number of dogs running loose in the village. One woman claimed she knew of
a fisherman who had been bitten by one
as-he was working at the 'wharf.
"If we're not careful, we'll be taken
over by wild dogs," said Eckstein. "We
should say something about this,"
; Moore noted that the village had a,
bylaw governing stray dogs and, at one
time, employed a dog catcher.
One audience member suggested' rals-''
ing the dog licence fee to defer residents
who were not willing to lopk after their
.pels, "
"Tine dog problem is getting serious
all over North Arnefioa,',' said Eckstein.
The association agreed to ask village
council what. could be done about the
dog situation,
REFERENDUM A MUST
The majority of members were opposed to published reports that tho school
board is Booking emergency funds from
the department of education to build a
junlor-secondaTy school near Sechelt without «'referendum, >
Said Kay Butler: "This should be
voted,ori'.t'ho same as other refcrondums.
1 'It was agreed to Invito a school board
representative to a future meeting to discuss financing of the two-school concept,
studied by each council member 'and
then a meeting arranged with the band
council.
Clerk Neil Sutherland said that the
village needs an overall five to 10 year
plan.
Watson was ■ critical of the regional
district and the "seven little satraps"
who are capricious and spiteful. He referred to the planning committees of each
electoral area and added, "each director
has,his and her own advisory planning
committee and must be responsible to
them.. The planning committees should
not over-rule' the technical people."
Sutherland added that "the technical
people will quit attending committee
meetings because they don't want to be
rubber stamps."
NO DUMP TRUCK
Council is going to take another look
before it buys that dump truck. Watson
said that without a backhoe (the council
earlier ruled out purchasing a backhoe)
there is not much point to having a
. dump  truck.
"A dump truck can't do general work
around the village, you can't load ii with
a hand shovel," Watson said.
He added that the village should work
out some type of contract such as B.C.
Tel has with firms to do work when
called and' to be 'on a retainer basis.
Clerk Neil Sutherland,- in referring
_,to Watsonls..change.of^mind-about).buyr.,.
ing a dump truck, said: "I wish you
would make lip your mind. One minute
you say you want a dump truck and the
next you say y6u don't. Let's make up
our minds."
Watson, Sechelt's representative on the
regional board, reported that he has been
appointed to the garbage committee. He
predicts an increase in cost of 15 per. cent
of servicing garbage collection sites.'
Watson and Osborne moved and seconded that local improvement project,
the lane 6 construction bylaw, be reconsidered and adopted, The motion was
carried with Aid. Ernie Booth's vote. Aid.
Dennis Shuttleworth was absent.
With the approval of the bylaw, the
clerk can now go ahead an4 arrange for
financing of the lane, construction.
Council still is looking for members of
• the', street naming committee, Mayor Harold Nelson asked!that any persons interested in serving on the committee to
contact him.

A letter from Gracie  and Emery Scott indicates' they expect  to be back at Roberts Creek on April  12. After  the  preliminary  procedures  President Duff announced that delegates  'to the provincial convention would be  .elected at our regular  March meeting.  ' Jim Derby reported the results of a  meeting held with the executive of Sechelt Timber Days. Briefly, the seniors had  ,been asked to assist, in any way they felt  they" could. .It had been suggested that  perhaps a carpet bowling tournament'  might be held but as this is not feasible  in Hackett Park we were asked'if we  might < perhaps instead assist in staging  a proposed horseshoe pitching contest.  Also a call was'made for volunteers to  assist in constructing proposed bleachers  Several of the men present volunteered  . and it is felt that others among the absentees will come forward. It was moved  that we make a donation of $10 towards  convention expenses.

Mrs. Stillwell and her parents, Mr. and  Mrs. Christiansen, owned the property  Which now belongs to Ernest McAllister  and Mrs. Stillwell and her son Michael  lived in the house where Milford McAllister now lives. In partnership with  Mrs.' Edna Brooks (now Edna Gladstone)  she operated the Driftwood Shop, a small  business for the sale of novelties made  from shells* starfish, rocks and driftwood.  She was interested in the children  of the Bay and organized pajama parties  and drama groups for performances at  the school concerts. Of-recent years, Mrs.  Stillwell had been living in Bremerton,  Wash.-Her son, Mike, has a government  job in Seattle.  The children's film show last Friday  offered a very interesting program. .The  most popular film was. The Loon's' Neck-  Jace which was made in the Kamloops  area with B.C. Indians taking part dressed in ceremonial robes and masks. The  cartoon film, as usual, was-ft big hit with  the children, particularly Rumpelstiltskin  whioh had1 live acting. The Halfmoon Bay  Recreation Commission which arranged,  the program expresses the appreciation  to the Welcome Beach Community Association for use of the hall and to Keith  Comyn who kindly acted as projectionist.  The regular Thursday film show presented three films loaned by B.C. Hydro  which, demonstrated the vast source of  hydro power oreated by developments  on the Columbia and Bridge Rivera,  Shown courtesy of B.C. Travel Industry  were two films on home landscaping, and  a light and amusing treatise on the funda^  mentals of safe boating. A film loaned  JOHN Winston Churchill died suddenly  in the early morning of Feb. 18 in his  66th year.     '  Born in Toronto, where he lived for  most of his life, he became the owner of  his own business in oil burner sales and  service. For, 3% years during the last  war, he served with the Royal Canadian  Navy, seeing service in the Russian Arctic  and taking part in the D-Day invasion of  Europe. In 1968, he' came to B.C. and built  a comforta'ble retirement home at Welcome Beach. He loved B.C. and the  friends he made here and had no desire  to live anywhere else, but last summer,  he' and -his wife Florence, drove to Toronto for a 2% months visit with their  two sons, Jack arid Douglas, their daughter Lorraine and their only grandson,  John Douglas ChurchilL  ', His family, and, many, old. friends , in  Toronto will treasure the memory of that  happy visit.  A quiet and reserved man, John  Churchill's chief interest was his home  and family, but he was also an enthusiastic ham radio operator.  A memorial service, conducted by the  Rev. Ian Grant, was held on Feb. 20 at  First Memorial Chapel in North Vancouver. Mrs. Churchill's son Jack had,  flown out from Toronto to be with her,  Last Friday afternoon, Mr. and Mrs.  Gus Fenker watched a wild life drama  taking place off the shore of their Welcome Beach home. Looking across the  water towards Merry Island, Mr. Fenker  saw what he thought to be two killer  whales sporting and playing, but when  he used his binoculars, he discovered'it  was,no game, he watched, but a ruthless ^ hunt by whales and a desperate  struggle for life by their victim.  The victlrh was a seal which had  sought refuge on a floating log and  which the whales were trying to dislodge  they were able to get some gas .to continue their journey. They say_ they would  not want to live in Florida under present  conditions. Robberies and muggings are  all too frequent and there are armed  guards around all the big stores. They  visited small stores where the 'owners  kept the doors locked in between customers.  Guests of Mrs. Roy Holgate are her  daughter Bernice with husband Tim  Guild from Brandon, Manitoba. Mr. and  Mrs. Guild left four feet of snow at  Brandon so they think the climate here  is pretty good even though they run into  a little snow around Gibsons on their  way here.   ,  Vince Shannon spent a few days-in  hospital for observation,  be home again by the time  gets into print.  necessary by the department's action in  deepening ditches where satisfactory access roads had been in use previously.  The letter was couched in such 'officialese' and such lack of consideration  for seniors that our secretary was asked  to write to the minister of highways requesting action on behalf of those affect  ed by these charges.  On the happier side, as far as governmental matters are concerned, was a  report from Adele deLange that she had  received advice from the Hon. Robert  Strachan that during refit, a toilet had  been installed on the car deck of the  Sunshine Coast Queen. It is perhaps only  fair to warn the cabinet that we can be  persistent regarding the culvert question  as we were in regard to the matter of the  restroom.  Our thanks go to Mr. Strachan for .  meeting our wishes. We were pleased also ���  to hear that our new treasurer, Leo Hop-  the meeting Mrs. Jean Sherlock and Airs.  Margaret Henshke were introduced as  new members.  After adjournment the social committee had tea and goodies waitingrso the  members could enjoy a get-together before wending their way home.

ONCE again, the news of, Pender Har- ,
bour Secondary, this time written by
the grade 11 class.
Monday, Feb. 4 started with the news
of, the defeat of our senior girls against
North Vancouver the previous Saturday.
We compliment them for their effort in
spite'of their loss.
A representative came down from UBC
and gave the two senior classes an interesting outline of the course airriculum
and the general goings-on at UBC. He
was closely followed by another representative, this time from the Vancouver
School of Art to talk to the students
' interested'in that field.
On Wednesday, Feb 6, our senior boys'
basketball team'went to Brooks at Powell
River. They played as best they could
I' suppose trying very hard to get the
old ball where it belonged, in the basket. -1 guess Brooks practiced a lot.
They're lucky they did because they just
beat their famous opponents FHS?. Our
boys came back defeated by a small loss
of 16 points, the score being 52-36. Our
senior boys' team just ain't what it used
to be.
' * On Friday, Feb. 8 there was a hot
dog sale with approximately 50 dogs *
sold at 25 cents apiece, bringing jn approximately $12. The reason for the dollar
short is obvious. Somebody must have
made a mistake.
The weekjytound up with the preparations for the Valentine's Dance on Feb.
15 where the Pen Kings were scheduled
to play.
' The cheerleaders have a couple of new
cheers rather than their same old rah-
rah.
The first section "of the BBC television film, The Ascent of Man, arrived at
the school and we found it very interesting. Future sections of the film will
be arriving in due time to be watched
by most everyone. i
. A tennis club has been organized
with a present membership of seven. The
team meets every Thursday night.
The Badminton Club is in need of all
those people who started out playing
badminton but who gradually stopped
coming.
On Valentine's Day the art class gave
the. premiere of its first film production.
It wasn't too bad but the price was raf
ther high, although we did get free pop4
■ corn.    '•'.'.■■,/'. !...•

. ■'. had in a beaker, producing clouds of black
sooty smoke. - -       --■•
On Friday, Feb. 15, the school held a
Valentine's -dance in .the gym which was
gaily decorated for the occasion. Everybody enjoyed themselves as they boogied
the night away to the sound of the Pen
Rings.
Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, the -junior and senior girls from
Elphie and Howe Sound were hosted at
.,:.'PHSS  for  basketball    games.   Friday"
' scores were:    • ■ "
Senior P.H: vs H.S.  26- 6
Junior P.H! vs H.S  17-16
Saturday finished   with    the Elphie
.   juniors taking Squamish while the Squa-
mish seniors took Elphie.
Our  principal,   Mir.   Thompson,,   had
,    been visiting Simon Fraser University for
•   -a conference on educational administraT
tion.
Our school sponsored the elementary
girls' volleyball tournament last Friday.
,    Participating, teams were Madeira Park,
Gibsons,   Langdale,   Roberts   Creek and
Sechelt with Langdale the champs.
; The senior boys' basketball team vis
ited /Howe Sound last weekend and the
;    results will be posted in next week's write
up. We hope that they returned victorious.

' ... Strait talk
EVERY well-planned home should have
a laundry room. We have one, although
I sometimes fail to see why I should have
to share it with a work-bench, tools, leftover lumber, paint cans, old bottles, broken toys and garden furniture. But, somewhere in .there is my washer, dryer, ironing board and iron. I could care less
about the latter. Ironing has never been
my big number.    , '
Loads of washing don't bother me at
all and drying's no problem. But the
ironing, well, confidentially it's been
years since I've seen the bottom of my
ironing basket. There are probably clothes
in there that are back in style again!
The method I use for ironing is to
hastily iron one shirt or blouse for each
family member as they dress to leave
tha house in the morning. Sure I know
about drip-dries and never irons, but
my weakness lies in tossing the wet
laundry into , the dryer and forgetting
about it After"lying; bunched up in" the
dryer for a day, the things are so wrinkled as to be unrecognizable until ironed.
Evidently my aversion to ironing was
not inherited. I have a mother who is
an absolute nut about ironing. She even
irons socks. As a matter; of fact,! I recall
passing by het ironing board and absent-
mindedly placing a cheese sandwich on
it. She irone_ it! Instant -grilled cheese.
So," whenever my mother visited us
she'd -take pity on everyone wandering
about in wrinkled wear, and she'd get
W^"1  T?*onJ° T1!!^ tltnf.seemc. annoyed when I. put down a table-cloth
so unfair?% is the" question that is answered  on   the  Christian-" Science radio'
series, The Truth that Heals, next Sunday. Time and station are advertised in
The Times today.
Many people are coping with conflict

would look crisp till next laundry day

could actually tell how frequently my

Then she moved nearby. For some

Edited by Joan Proctor - 886-2073  WL  Sechelt News Notes  TRAVELLER Mrs. Hilda Moore is staying in North Vancouver -after her  trip to Hawaii, where she enjoyed*the  country life on Maui except for the rain  and monsoons especially in Maui while  she was there.  Shortages are much in evidence with  people waiting in line from 3 a.m. for  gas, blocks-long lineups for a dozen eggs,  no pulp products such as T.P. serviettes  or sugar, rice and potatoes. The latter,  when available, are. two pounds for 59  Squaringly yours  ���by Maurice Hemstreot  LIKE, wow! Did we have a good time  last Friday or did we, have a good  time. I tell you, we had over three sets  of the Country Stars, just a wheeling and  dealing. Caller Harry wasn't feeling too  chirper yet and I did kind of a stupid  thing when I took down a danger limb  out of a big fir tree so that "it wouldn't  fall on someone and hurt them. I got in  a spot where there was no place to stand,  so of course, no place to run and when  the limb let go it bounced two or three  tims, then decided to land right- across  nvy left shinbone. I'm getting better, never even uttered a profound word, just  cried a lot. Anyway, Harry and I went  50-50 on the square dance calling. I found  out one thing, it's hard to square dance  on one foot.  Our guests for-' the evening were Ken  and Maureen Corbin, formerly from Ontario where they belonged to the Shamrock Squares,.and now living in Sechelt.  Also Wendy Allen from Granthams Landing. The Country Stars hope you all  enjoyed yourselves and will be back next  ���- week.  One thing about square dancing, you  never have a bad night even if you only  have one set. You just can't beat good  clean fun and topped up with a bucket-  full of laughter.  The kids at the Roberts Creek Elementary school are really coming along  good, with seven sets on the floor, it is  sure something to see. It used to be, everyone going in all directions, but now,  they are beginning to look like professional square dancers. One has to remember that they are grades 6 and 7, so this  makes their progress more astounding.  And I have this to say, young people of -  the Roberts Creek school, keep up the  good work and I will be seeing you on  Friday   afternoons.  Well, I think it's about time that I  put my mutilated leg up in the air for a  time to rest so I will leave you with  this thought: It is far better to skin a  shin than to break a leg, but, whichever  way you do it, I tell you right now it  not only smarts, but hurts like the devil  too. Aloha! See you at the square dance.  ���by Peggy Cearaor  cents. Shopping at the Ala Moana Centre,  Honolulu, Hilda had a lovely surprise  to hear someone call her name and there  was Mrs. Lili Dunlop, making both  ladies feel.they .were  back at Sechelt.

Sadness reigns in our household as  first, our young cat died of poisoning, a  death not to be wished on anyone. Consensus is he ate of a poisoned mouse.  Two days later the beloved shepherd of  kids, parents and pets, friend of all, suffering greatly with arthritis of the spine,  left us after nine years of faithful love  and service. Tippy dared- any predator  to even fly over the bantams and rabbits  in the yard, then as if the word was  passed around the first morning without  him a large hawk flew in the yard and  before our very eyes swooped down and  , picked up a setting bantam hen.

Actually, it's not really their fault,  even though they are in the centre of the  current assessment mess.  It's difficult not to agree with the  findings of the B.C. Assessment Appeal  Board, which suggests there be better  W/iy 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  suggestions.  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  with the passing weeks and we will remove any that have been taken care of  (providing that we 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.  WHY DON'T THEY? ���  ���Put a traffic signal at Wharf Street  and Highway 101?  ���Install a handrail down the steepest part of School Road?  ���Use their car lights, more during  rain storms and at dusk?  ���Realize that driving 30 m.p.h. in  a 50 m.p.h. zone is dangerous?  public relations between provincial and  municipal assessors and the taxpayers  whose properties they assess.  The average householder hasn't  much of an idea about assessment. All  he gets is a notice showing him his land  and buildings assessment. If there is an  increase, there is nothing to show why  an increase has been made. In a word,  no explanation is given, whatsoever.  The appeal board suggests a written  statement be made 'giving the reasons  in all cases where assessments increase  substantially from year to year. At least  in this way, the beleaguered property-  owner has something to go on. Hopefully, this might lower the number of  complaints and appeals made every year.  At the same time it could improve the  assessor's public image. ,  We understand that assessors in different municipalities have to make their  own interpretations on the Assessment  Equalization Act.  So far no one knows what local taxes  will be but there are a great number of  dissatisfied customers. Naturally they  don't feel that assessments are realistic  and the general thinking is that interpretations of the act vary in different  localities.

Stanley H.'knbwles, a  friend to all senior citizens of Canada,  has already filed a motion for the forthcoming session of Parliament to raise  the basic pension to $200 a month and  to lower the pensionable age to 60. He  urges all Canadians to hit the war path  for an all-out attack on all our members  of Parliament.  It is not necessary to stress the urgent  need for a better deal for our senior citizens, the men and women who built  Canada and made it all possible.

INSURANCE CORPORATION UtJ Of BRITISH COLUMBIA  your insurance company  ..���At. /  She loves to travel  p0ge B-4���Peninsula Times, Wed., Feb. 27, 1974  oesnt slow s>unsiiine  by Helen Tinklley  HALFMOON BAY���Mrs. Helen Dratsch, a  resident of Seacrest in the Halfmoon  Bay area, has always loved to travel and  see new places. Now, nearing her 70th  birthday, she is still seeking new horizons.  Two years ago she travelled alone to  Mexico by train and bus, but this year  she planned to push south through, Mexico and explore the countries of Central  America.  When she set out on Nov. 1, she was  doubtful whether she would ever reach  her destination, but in Vancouver, when  she called in at the Costa Rican consulate  for a visa, she received so many pamphlets and excellent maps that she was  encouraged at least to make the attempt.  She travelled by bus to Nogales on the  Mexican border, where she decided to  continue her journey by train. She got a  reserved seat in a first-class carriage,  thinking this would' ensure her a seat and  a reasonable degree of comfort.  v Though Nogales ��� railway station is  gleaming new, the coaches are at least  50 years old with three-ply windows,  that is-, two layer's^ of glass and a centre  layer of moisture and dirt which makes  them practically opaque. And if she  thought the first-class carriage would  ensure her lots of- room, she was quickly  disillusioned. Th_ procedure is to allow  those with first class reserved tickets  into the train first, but after that,, anybody can take the vacant seats, so before  . the train left the station, there were  about 20 passengers standing. As it grew  dark, the standing passengers started to  bed themselves down on the floor for the  night. There were 62 seats in the carriage  and to get to the washroom, it meant  stepping over about 20 bodies. By the time  the train reached Guadalajara, 28 hours  later, the passengers had thinned out and  there were some empty, seats.  Mrs. Dratsch spent two days in Guadalajara and then took a bus to Puerto  Vallarta, where she found cobblestone  rfstreetsifulLof potholes and a,rocky,beach.  Nearby was Mismaloya beach, a beautiful sandy beach made famous by the film,  of Nicaragua. It was an interesting journey and because of the frequent stops for  meals and border crossings, she had the  opportunity of meeting with her travelling companions who comprised Canadians, Americans,' Germans, Mexicans as  well as natives of the Centra American  countries.  The bus arrived in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua late one evening, and  the fat, energetic little lady who ran the  hotel, busily allotted the passengers to  the rooms she had available. Mrs. Dratsch  shared a room with two young women,  a German from Hamburg and a Canadian  from Victoria, who intended to stay in  South" America for eight months. The bus  x left at 6 a.m. next day with most of the  passengers bound for Costa Rica and  Panama, but Mrs. Dratsch decided to stay  another day to take a look around Managua. It was a decision,she was to regret,  for the city had been practically destroyed'by an earthquake a year earlier and  it was a derelict spot. All those who could  afford to do so, had left the town "after  the earthquake and only the poorer members of the population remained, salvaging what they could from the ruins to  improvise rough shelters. Here and there  one came across the remains of beautiful  homes and gracious gardens. The lush  tropical vegetation is helping cover the  scars, climbing over the broken walls and  up to the second storeys of the houses.  Managua was wiped out by an earlier  earthquake and fire in 1931.  Next morning, Mrs. Dratsch boarded  the Tica-Bus for Costa Rica. The road  follows Lake Nicaragua for several miles,  passing by the pretty little town of Granada. Yake Nicaragua is claimed to be the  only lake in the world which contains  sharks. The explanation offered by the  natives is that long ago, the lake was part  of the Pacific Ocean until a volcanic  eruption blocked the passage to the sea,  forming the lake. Over the centuries, the  salt water .became fresh water and the  sharks adapted themselves to the change  in their environment. This region was  '' ther original^  connect the Pacific and Atlantic oceans,  utilizing Lake Nicaragua    and the. San  __"__^ __fS__?_2S,__ =S��~w_S.- ___*���--___  rumor has it that thei property has been  acquired for  a resort by Canadian m.-.  Jterests..,.,._^^^  From Puerto Vallarta, our adventurous  little lady took a bus to Manzariillo over a  very good modern road, through orange  groves, banana plantations and jungle,  where people lived in much the same way  as they had lived for a hundred years or  more. Manzanillo she found a lively little  port, with its hafbor filled with boats,  navy vessels and even the Spirit of London.  By night bus, she travelled to Mexico  City where she spent three interesting  days. She"'enjoyed the colorfulmusic arid  dancing of the Pallet Foiklorico and she  visited the National Pawn shop; which is  .situated in the centre of the city adjacent  to the muruciparbuiidihgs, It has been in  operation for about 200 years and among  the unredeemed articles on sale are some  magnificent and valuable jewels.'  Mrs, Dratsch took the train, this time  travelling Pullman, for the journey to  Tapachula on the Guatemalan border.  : After ah engine breakdown, the train arrived at Vera Cruz at 4 p.m., already  seven hours behind schedule. ,  An American from Los Angeles who  boarded the train said he had been waiting since early 'mining and every time  ���he asked an official when the, train would /  ,. arrive, the answer was invariably ."Un  momentito!"   (a  little    moment),, with  thumb and' fore finger a quarter inch  apart to    indicate, how    infinitesimally  short the wait would be. There was no  dining room on the train and the passengers had d-pended on fruit and tortillas  which  women  carried, along  the  platforms at the various stops. At Vera  ; Cruz, Mrs, Dratsch wanted a meal but  was told the train would leave in half  an hour. She hurried out of the station  to buy some food and was back in less  than 30 minutes, but 2% hours later, the  train was still' standing in the station!  When eventually, they arrived at Tapachula, 12 hours behind schedule, the border was closed for the, night and passengers had to find hotel accommodation.  Next morning, Mrs. Dratsch boarded  a bus which took nor over tho border into  Guatemala,  which Is  populated  mainly  by  Indians    of Mayan    descent.  They  reached Guatemala City In the afternoon  ond she took a bus to Esqulpulas to see,  tho jbnslllca and the famous carving of  the Black Christ, made from black wood,'  which Is famous throughout Latin America, The next day she crossed over' tho  border In El Salvador, a crossing which  In seldom used by foreigners.

She found little of  interest In tho town Itself, save a few  public buildings and tlio parks wore dry  and dusty. However, tho unburns on tho  surrounding  hl|l��    with    tho  beautiful  houses and  gardens    of tho well-to-do  wore delightful   and   from   tho  nearby  Planes do liondoros which can "bo reached by bus, a fine view can bo obtained  of tho city and surrounding volconon, La  Mbortad, A seaaldo resort to tlio south, Is  -     little more than n-flshlng village,���with  a not too interesting beach. This Is coffee-growing country nnd the coffco harvest was In full swing In tho coffco linens  (estates),  ',     H  was   In  San .Salvador' that   Mrs.  D'rAtsch~iic��rrt'nhou'tihoTic^nufiCB'wTilch  nerve the Central American, countries  from Guatemala lo Panama, travelling at  dnyllma from early morning until Into  evening, Ono morning alio boarded tho  TIcm-Hun lor a wonderful trip across Into  Honduras and then tiouth to tho border  put on the project between 1889 and 1893  but was then abandoned in favor of the  Panama route.  After crossing the Cost^  the road passes through rather flat country for about 130 miles. Then at Esparta  the climb starts to the Cordillera Volcan-  ica, again descending to the 4J000 feet  elevation of the Meseta' Central, where  lies the capital, San Jose. It is a very  European city, with beautiful parks,  churches and a national theatre "which  is an exact replica of the Paris Opera  House.  From San Jose, Mrs, Dratsch had a  most interesting ride to Puntarenas on  the west coast :by ,a; narrow.: gauge^ railway which 'travels over the .spectacular  Rio Grande de Tarcoles gorge. jThe engine  crosses the gorge several tinies, on high  narrow bridges, g i v ing spine-chilling  views below- Puntarenas proved to be  one of Costa Rica's busiest ports, with  ten freighters. In the low coastal lands of  Costa Rica, the soil- is rich and fertile with  orange groves and plantations of bananas,  coffee and jsugar cane. There are also  cattle ranches, m o s t Ly stocked' with  Brahmas   (humped    cattle)   which    can  withstand drought.  Only a few miles from San Jose and  accessible by bus is Costa Rica's oldest  Spanish city, Cartago, where there are  two famous churches and where begins  the climb to the Irazu volcano. From  its 11,200 foot peak, it is claimed that  one can see the Atlantic and Pacific  coasts, but .when Mrs. Dratsch was there,  the mountain was shrouded in mist which  blanketed all distant views, but she was  able to see the light green water which  seemed to boil deep down in the crater.  Past Cartago, the Pan American Highway climbs to its highest elevation north  of Panama, around 11,000 feet. It .is an  eerie part of the country, cold and damp.  There are quite a few trees, but they  are covered with a parasitic moss which  gradually kills them. There are, nevertheless some poor settlements and even  some cattle grazing, but the people living there have to bring much of their  food from the towns. The road descends  again to San Isidoro del General which  was the most southerly point of Mrs.  Dratsch's journey. ���,  At the time, the towns of-Costa Rica  were gay with flags of many colors. An  election campaign was being fought and  the five different parties each had their  own flags and these flags were displayed  in all the villages and towns giving quite  a carnival effect. There were flags on  the houses, in the trees and on the fence-  posts���and there was apparently no ill  feeling between neighbors displaying different colors.  On the return journey, Mrs. Dratsch  had to spend another night in the Tica-  Bus hotel at Managua. While on this occasion she did not have to share a room,  she had plenty of mosquitos for company.  She could not find a switch to turn off  the light, so she disconnected two wires  which stuck out of the wall. Next morning, in the darkness, she tried to connect  them again and got a shock, so she left  the door open and got dressed and packed by a little light coming in from the  hallway.   She returned  from  Tapachula  to Mexico: City'by ;>bus,*;; which took just  20 hours compared to the 48-hour journey  by rail on the southward trip. She spent a  day shopping in. the old silver mining  town of Taxco and then bused out to the  coast for an eight-day rest at Acapulco.  On her way north, Mrs. Dratsch spent  a few days: in:"Monterey^which*she considers a very commercial town but with  interesting  features.   Worth a visit, she  says,   is  the  district   around   the  Plaza  Zaragoza with its stately hotels, sidewalk  cafes and,  across from the cathedral a  beautiful big park. The best view, of the  city is to be obtained from the Bishop's  Palace, El Obispado, perched on top  of  a hill at the western end of Monterey.  She crossed the border at Laredo and  made  a stop   at  the   Carlsbad  Caverns  where there ,are  examples of  the best  stone-filigree work  she  has- ever  seen.  She stopped off in Las Vegas for a day on  the Strip and then headed for Vancouver  and the Sunshine Coast after a journey  covering approximately 8,000 miles.  Mrs. Dratsch considers it advisable for  travellers to Mexico and the Central  American countries to know a little  Spanish to be able to communicate with  banks, hotels and transportation officials,  particularly if they plan to use moderately priced hotels or get off the beaten  track.

When we  eame to live in  Gibsons, we awaited news of a band  concert with great anticipation. The opportunity came in November when the  Elphinstone secondary school senior band  played at the Remembrance Day service,  held at the t' new Legion Hall in Gibsons.  Their selections added immeasurably to  what was, in every way, a fine service.  The next chance came when the same  band, took part in the Christmas concert  of Sechelt School District. The improvement in the musicianship of the students  was quite remarkable: smoother ensemble work, good tone and some well-controlled dynamic effects showed that the  long hours of practise had not been in'  vain.  We need hardly say, then, that a letter:  received recently from Mel Campbell,  bandmaster, was of particular interest. It  was an invitation to all parents of band  students to attend a meeting concerning  the band programme at Elphinstone secondary on  the evening  of  Wednesday,'  ��� by Margaret Jones  Feb. 20.  The parents and students who1 attended the meeting heard Mr. Campbell outline the particular areas in which a band  committee could help. Don Montgomery  explained the details of the instrument  rental system.  Following a discussion period, it was  decided to form a - band committee, for  which elections were held..  Members are as follows: Chairman,  Mrs. P. Gross; vice-chairman, J. Black;  secretary, Mrs. T. Forsyth; treasurer, Don  Montgomery, principal; transportation,  Mrs. E. Dandy and Mrs. D. Marcroft;  phone, Mrs. T. Fraser; hospitality, Mrs.  D. Montgomery; publicity, Mrs. R. Jones.  Student representatives will be named  soon.  The committee will meet Wednesday,"  Feb.   27.  Supporting the band is not limited to  parents of band students. It is hoped that,  as specific projects arise, members of  the community will want to do whatever they can���like attending the band  section of the local music festival, which  starts at 1:30 p.m. March 6 at Sechelt  Elementary School.  ���    ���_m ���      _�����,-> h   ^   ,       f.    f^MllMi  _ ||l__. ��_.__���_���!������ !_��� fl      ���,.-_�� ���-    *~LY      *   ���*     ��� "   ���"     "'    ��    _��� -- ���- _.���-.       -   .,- -���  . -     - - __��� ..!����������� ,,������'  .JK-rUV-*-'  t_rf\-   _*>*-,���* ���-.

High-  Coast body shops  OK $14 hour plan  A FINAL offer of $14 an hour for repair  work under Autoplan-is being widely  accepted by body shops throughout the  ���province, the Insurance Corporation of  B.C. announced.  ��� About 60 per cent of body shops contacted by ICBC to date have agreed to  provide vehicle repairs at the rate proposed by the provincial auto insurance  company.  Most body shops on- the Sunshine  Coast have agreed to the plan, a survey  conducted by The Times revealed.  Doug Scrivener, ICBC's senior executive for claims service, said today that  192 of the 355 body shop operators contacted have agreed to ICBC's rates. He  said many of those signed up are larger  shops.  ICBC, whose universal Autoplan insurance program will cover all licensed  vehicles in B.C. effective March 1, has  proposed a basic body repair rate of $14  an hour.  - He said letters will be going out within a week to those shops which have  agreed to the rates. The letters will out-,  line procedures for handling estimates  and billing, and will give each -operator  a vendor number to be used in computer-  controlled payment systems.  -tsnatmanna  _  aaamaainaatatimaaataamfaaaaaiMai  *  Put your message into more  =       than    3,250   homes   (14,000  |       readers)   in   these   economical'  jj      spots.
