' Attorney-General Alex Macdonald revealed May 1 that investigations by his  department had produced nothing to substantiate conflict of interest charges against an alderman and the association.  On Macdonald's advice, the $150,000  community recreation grant, which had  bee delayed pending the outcome of the  probe, has now been approved.  Association' director Henry Hall told  council's May 1 meeting: "All charges  have been dropped. There was no substance to them."  He "asked opponents of the project to  back the association's efforts and work  together.  Hall predicted that the arena would be  90 per cent completed by the end of May  and ready for use by July 31, although  the proposed curling and skating program' is not slated to begin until September.  In addition to the $150,000 recreation  grant, Hall said the federal government  would grant 100 per cent forgiveness for  labor costs incurred before the end of  May.  ' Before the recreation grant is made  available, two additional clauses must be  inserted into the lease agreement between  the association and village council, he explained. '  The amendments, proposed by the department of municipal affairs, provide  for direct control of arena recreation programs by the .village..  Programs established by council must  then be approved by the department of  recreation and conservation, according to  a second ammendment clause.  Assuring public access to the arena at  all times, Hall told aldermen: "From the  ���see page A-2  lyci"  Vol. IK No. 24 ��� WEDNESDAY, MAY 8, 1974  ���"-tVl  >Vv?\.  I'^'J.V-i  ' \  By Sechelt council  SECHELT���Aid. Dennis Shuttleworth has  pressed for municipal control, over the  school district mill rate. -  He stressed the need for this action  May 1 after council learned that the local  school board requisitions' from Sechelt  for 1974 would be $93,062���an increase of  almost 50 per cent over the previous  year's figure.  < Municipal clerk Neil Sutherland agreed: "The requisition has'gone up fantastically."'  Shuttleworth predicted that if health  and education costs continued to increase  at the current rate, "in 20 years there  will be no funds for anything else. We've  got to put a clamper on it somewhere."  Sutherland explained that the total  assessment in Sechelt had increased considerably in the past year.  "The assessment went up, so the mill  rate should have gone down," he felt.  Instead, the school district raised its  mill rate from 28.75 to 29.66.  Shuttleworth felt the rate would have  been different if the district had to collect its own taxes. ,  "If the (school board) trustees had to  come to the public directly for funds,  instead of using- the village as a post  office, they would have to do considerably more soul searching," he said.   "'  The aldermen said that Canadians  spent more on education than on defence.  "If the Russians attack, we'll have to  throw school books at them."  Aid. Ernie Booth said the village had  no control over the school district mill  rate.  "I think we should go to Victoria and  ask for some~ control," urged Shuttle-  worth.  In other finance committee business,  Booth revealed that this year's municipal  mill rate in Sechelt would be 18, the  same as last year.  Shuttleworth tells council  '���A  WORKERS, at Weldwood    of  Canada's  Clowhom operation -.' walked ' off7,tih,���  job May ,4 because of, "safety hazards  and health reasons,", according to a camp  committee spokesman. '   - '   '    '   i,i.   -  The dispute was brought to a>head  when a pickup truck driven by one,of the  employees' was involved in an accident  Weldwood ' claimed" the crash ;.was  caused by driver error and suspended  the workman. " * >',  But an International Woodworkers of  America spokesman at the camp claimed  the truck was unsafe to drive.'  "All the pickups are in a terrible condition for driving," he told The Times.  The management refused to meet with  striking workers May 5 and at The Times'  Sunday deadline, negotiations were expected to start the following day:  _  "We have 20 or 30 grievances,"-said  the IWA spokesman, who requested to  remain anonymous.  He claimed that .the' camp's bunkhouses  were dirty, the food terrible and the  sewers overflowing.  A union business agent from Vancouver travelled to Sechelt May 5 in readiness for Monday's bargaining session.  The IWA spokesman said 44 men, pre- ���  sent at the camp at the time of the strike-  decision voted 100 per cent to walk off,  the job. '<  '      He said the workers would remain off  the job .'until  their  demands  are  metr  "We could be out for a week," he said.  Paved airport:  step closer  PAVING of the Gibsons-Sechelt airport' .  came one step closer at a recent meeting between the joint .airport- committee,  department of transport representatives,  Al Campbell, owner of T^ree Airways  and members of Elphinstone Flying Club.  Sechelt Aid. Dennis Shuttleworth.described the meeting as "very constructive," but said paving of the airstrip was  probably at least two years away.

He told council's May 1 meeting that  30 local residents had backed the project  and were willing to form a society.  "The Vancouver Natural History Society is behind us and the UBC botanical  department has expressed interest," he  said.  The alderman noted that Don Lockstead MLA' had received letters of support firom- several Individuals and organizations.  In other council business, Aid. Ernie  Booth was instructed to investigate a request from a local landlord to raise 'the  rent of her units above the eight percent  ceiling set by the provincial government.  Originally,;, the ...woman, 7-vrote to the  minister of housing on.the matter, Tsaid  municipal clerk Neil Sutherland.  He, In turn, referred the letter to the  attorney general's department, which informed her that her local council had  the choice of opting out of the rent  controls.  In a letter to the provincial government, she said she had raised her tenants'  rents only once in the past 10% years  and claimed that they had no objection.  to the proposed increase.  Shuttleworth felt the woman had a  justifiable reason to raise her rents above  the eight percent limit.  Said Aid. Ted Osborne:  "I'm, all in  favor of supporting her. I think she has;  a legitimate case."  Booth said that since her, tenants did  not object to the increase, "I suggest we  get a letter from them saying, th^y do  not object,"  Booth was instructed to contact her  tenants and try to obtain letters of consent to the rent, hikes.

The plan was proposed by Don Lock-  . stead, MLA, by telephone to secretary-  treasurer Eric Willmott.  Lockstead said that he had been in  contact with Jack Radford, minister of  education and conservation and Bob V/il-  liamSj minister of lands and forests on  the acquisition of the park. Market value  of the site is about $100,000.       7  Money for the purchase is available  in the provincial green belt fund, Lockstead indicated.

'  .;.     7  Centre' CT-ordinator - Alice1 '��� McSweeney  said an open house was being staged inobservance of mental health week, which  is designated annually by the Canadian  Mental Health,Association.  "This is an excellent opportunity for  the general public to visit our centre and  meet with our staff," she said. "We are  ���hoping that a great many people will  drop in and become better acquainted  with the services we provide to the community."  Sechelt's mental health centre is the  30th to be opened in the province by the  department of health services and hospital  insurance,  Mrs. McSweeney said the centre operates on a referral basis from doctors and  public agencies, but it�� services are also  available to anyone who walks (through  the .door. /������'��� 77'; '.'.7::. 7' 77 .,.' 77.  The majority, of patients seeking help  at the centre suffer from marital, or  geriatric problems, depression or anxiky.  "The whole 'theory of the mental health  centres is to give help' on the spot, not  send patients to, hospital."  Before coming; to Sechelt in October,  Mr. McSweeney was coordinator of rehabilitation, at Riverview mental hospital  In Coquitlam. . .  "In Riverview, I dealt with people  In hospital who were preparing to leave,"  she said. "Here, there is .usually ' no  thought of hospitalizing people,  "Often, our patients are just anxious  about something and need someone to  talk, to." ��� " ���. .  1      In the case of residential Institutions  such as Riverview,  "when  the patent  moves In, his family  learns  to adjust  without him- and it's difficult for him  to get back into, the .family structure.  The purpose, of the mental health cen--  , tres is to..bring;the se^icesjto,the people^.^  so they won't have W leave'honie." 7'  Local patients suffer mainly from  " family problems,, s.he noted. "It's often a  question of where the people are going  ,in life. We try to get them to make a  decision. If the problem is yours, you,  get too wrapped up in it. It helps to  see other alternatives."  During her first month in Sechelt,  Mrs. McSweeney was without office facilities.  "I was seeing people in my own  home," she recalled.  Part of the centre's work is concerned,  with emotional and ^carping problems  among school children, she said. The  schools, themselves, refer most of her  younger patients, ,  Geriatric  problems    are ���particularly  prevalent  in this area  because  of the  relatively high ' percentage of    retired'  ; 'people^''.: ,'      '   ���  Mrs., McSweeney, herself,,is a psychol- '  ogist. A psychiatrist is' 'available when  'required.   .''

"But I can't see it,for a while," she  said. "Our next step will likely be to  add a social worker."

His comments were clipped  from UBC Reports.  "In terms of the north campus, such  a policy would imply several things. First,  the parking along Marine Drive should  no longer be free (even though I use it  regularly). Second, no new parking lots  are needed for the new museum���Marine  Drive and the Fraser River lot are quite  adequate. Third, the need for all the little  lots squeezed between the buildings could'  be reduced by/; charging higher fees for  their use, etc."  "Anyway, I think my basic tenet is  clear.

The association director felt upcoming  strike action by the construction industry  .would not affect progress on the arena,  since the association was employing nonunion contractors.  But if the workers' pay scale is raised after negotiations, 'Ut would make  a difference of 30 per cent" in the cost  of the arena.

From the pulpit
—by Pastor Gerry Foster,
Gibsons Pentecostal Church
THERE are those who feel they can be
a Christian and not attend church.
They feel it does not matter whether one
observes regular church attendance or not.
But let us consider briefly this question.
It would be good to first consider a
verse of Scripture found in the letter to
the Hebrews. It says, "Do not neglect to
meet together, as is the habit of some,
but encouraging one another, and all the
more as you see the Day drawing near."
This should be enough to satisfy and
convince us of the necessity of meeting
together and worshipping with other
" Chrisltians. But more can be said including
the fact that as Christians we will have
a love for each other, accompanied' with
a desire for Christian fellowship. In fact,
we should long for those times when we
can assemble together in church.
As someone has said, "If the society
of the Church is no more to us than the
society of the world we are simply not
converted." Perhaps we take our freedom'
of worship in this country too much for
granted, without realizing that in parts of
the world Chrisltians are forced to meet
Also you are missing outj and robbing
yourself of many blessings by staying
home. If you pare a Christian and love
the'Lord Jesus Christ you will give evidence of it by attending a Bible-believing
church on a regular .basis.
Happenings* around the Harbour
The Peninsula Times Page A-3
Wednesday, May 8, 1974
by Kathleen Yull 883-9068
I-HAVE to correct Wo errors-that-were-
--   included in last week's column.       ,
The first I 'take no responsibility for
.—it's a straight case of change of plans.
It .concerns (the plane ride s arranged
for the May Day celebrations. Seems
there will be a Tyee Airways plane
on hand oh May 11—that is, a week prior
to the major events and on the same day
as the junior, fish derby.
The plane will be at Clay's Madeira
Marina wharf from 9 to 11 a.m., and for
$4 you can have an aerial tour of the
Harbour area lasting about 15 minutes.
They tell me this is a delightful tour and
well worth the modest cost.- The geo-
- chose-to settle on-the remoter-Madeira
Park side.
They cleared the big cedars from their
property, got them down, to1 the water,
and floated them oyer to a sawmill across
the chuck. In many cases they used the
old exchange system of paying for having
the logs converted ,into building lumber:
they delivered two logs to the, mill, and
"got .back the lumber from one. The remaining boards became the property-of „the fugitive had come ashore here,
the sawyer.
The lumber was then brought back
to their shore by boat in bundles, and had
to be, lifted to the top of the hill for
storage. They devised a way of lifting, it
the buoy in front of his parents' home,
he was hailed from the shore by RCMP
officers.".He. went ashore _and _was: able..
to convince them of his identity.
Later, he brought his boat through
canoe pass en route for Haddock's Marina,
and another alert citizen spotted him and
promptly notified' the' police of where '
h& was^ In spite of'assurances from the
Haddocks that the man on their dock was'
well-known to'them and not the suspected
killer, it' was reported in the' press that
graphy of this area is mysterious enough , involving the use of a winch from a huge
to me now, with only the two versions to    " J     '~*x -*---^ - •-. "
synchronize—'that from the land and that
from >the water. 'Perhaps, though, this
third perspective will help me to get an
accurate^ impression of it.
The second error I must correct is my
own responsibility. And it's more a matter of giving the wrong impression than
supplying the wrong information. I reported the Pender Harbour Bowling Club's
banquet and dance, and I said "Plans...
seemed to have hit a snag when the
caterer backed out at the last minute-..."
The wording seems to imply that someone failed to live up to a promise,' but
all concerned have assured me that this
was not the ease. On the assumption that
the caterer of their choice would be available, plans were made for that Saturday evening, but when negotiations were
" begun it turned out that she was already
committed to another banquet on the
same date. J3orry about that.
Hope you got out to the Pender Harbour spring bazaar on Saturday, and the
spring concert that evening.
Got talking with John and Alice Haddock this past week, and they were telling
me of some of the changes they've seen
in our area. The Haddocks arrived here
well over a score of years'ago, when Ab
was a toddler, and built ■ what' is now
Coho Marina. At that time there was no
community' on this side of the harbor—
. all the "development had taken place over
at Irvine's Landing. But the Haddocks
(ojualitu  wSuilderS
T" &i?'~S%^'C*pz?^^W£$si'.
cedar left standing at the top of the hillside. The laden boat would come in as
close as possible to the store, "a line would-
be passed from the bundle of boards,
through the winch, and back to the vessel,
where it was secured. When the boat
was moved off at top speed, the heavy
load would be lifted and swung into place -
atop the slope.
From there it 'had to be moved down
to the shore again when the time came .
to build the shop, and there it ..still is,
part of the walls and floors of the present
marina building.,"
Vehicles were few and far between
in the Harbour area in those days, for
there was no proper road access. Social
events which took place in, say, Halfmoon Bay could be difficult to reach,
especially during the winter months when
travel by boat was apt to be hazardous.
So there was pressure to provide entertainment on the spot.
Local musicians' provided the music
for community dances, and there were
film showings that sometimes were interrupted while fighting dogs were separated and shooed out of the audience. One
local musician was Bob Ford, whoN also
drove 'the school bus. (Not the Bob Ford'
from "Egmont who drives a school' bus
today; but another man with the same
Because the bus job left him many
hours of free time, Bob came to work at
Haddock's Marina, and John tells a story
•of him mooring a boat at the wharf one
winter day, and backing right off the
other side into the icy water. He was
wearing a tarn, and he sank out of sight,
leaving his hat floating on the surface,
but managed to .come up under it and
emerge still wearing it, though a little
askew. He was back in the driver's seat
of the bus on schedule, bundled in dry
clothes borrowed from John.
The Haddocks also told me of a day
when Bob Otis, who is now one of the
mechanics in the shop at Coho, was mis-,
taken for a murder suspect. The man,
who was being sought by the police was,
reported, to have stolen a boat from Gib--
sons and to be heading up this coast. It,
happened that the vessel in which Bob"
was travelling fitted the description of
.the stolen,one, and when he moored at*
Heard another story from a .neighbor
recently, and this one has a moral. Ed
Wiggins was the man -who saw that boat
explode off the tip of "Francis Peninsula .
a few weeks ago, and it was he who got
the people safely out .of the water "and
into his own boat. They'd been mooohing,.
with the motor off, and the vessel's owner
had -noticed that there was a smell of
gasoline- when he shut down. However;
when he was ready to move on, he started
the motor up. Of course the result was.
an explosion.. Wiggins says a column of
flame about 30 feet in height shot up
into the air,' and the occupants had no
time even to grab life jackets, but' had
to hit the water at once. The boat and
all its contents went down, but fortunately
all aboard escaped injury.'
And of course the moral is, if you
smell gas, dont' start your/ motor.
From Egmont, I hear Flo Williams had >
an unexpected visit recently from her
son Jackie, who is now ranching in Alberta. As befits an Alberta rancher, he
was wearing- a 10-gallon hat, but to local
people who remember Jackie as a fisherman it seemed strange head gear.'
In spite of the terrible weather, the
recent plant sale at Egmont went well
and a surprisingly large number of visitors ' turned up. Winner of one of the
prizes, a hanging" planter, lives aboard a
boat, but was delighted with the prize.
Iris Griffith tells me it was surprising
to see how many of those attending live
in trailers .or boats. Guess'the urge to
have things growing is universal. I noticed
a tub of flaming red tulips growing at the
bow of Les Fowler's Chimo^Chimo in
Madeira Park the other day, too.
The renovation, project at Egmont
Community Hall is-in"its final week, and
the building looks great. There's a new
roof, the surrounding area has been clean-
- ed up, the interior's all repainted and the
floors sanded and varnished: And Jim
Goodwin, who instructed the art class
held during the last few months, has
painted an enormous picture of a sailing
ship which will grace one" of the bright
clean walls.
Once again, I remind you about getting information to me for inclusion in
the column. Deadline time is Thursday
evening—although in an emergency I can
usually include information received before 8:30 a.m, on Friday. And I'm available by phone only before 10 a.m. or

Madeira Park students . .  by Jennifer Wilcox  TOE first day, iwe left the school after  saying goodbye to our parents at 7:15  a.m. We' caughbthe ferry from Langdale  to Horseshoe Bay. We had the lunch  which our mothers had given us at a  lake called Lake of the Woods. When we  arrived at Lytton, it was ,a_ dry, windy  place with a lot pf Indians walking a-  round. We set up our gear in the school  and then went down the road to the Fraser Riv_r. The school was a nice one  and most of the kids took showers. The s  boys and girls took their showers in bathing suits, then the girls with cameras  took pictures of everyone. That night it  wasn't too easy to sleep because trains  roared by, the gym was hot and stuffy,;  and there was a rattling noise on the roof.  SECOND DAY (QUESNEL)  . On the way to Quesnel we were very  impressed with the beautiful mountains.  It was hot and sunny. There were  mountain goats climbing up, the rocky  mountains just on the side of the road.  There were also horses grazing on the  mountains. The school was nice but no  one thought it better than ours. It had  showers, but we couldn't use. them because they had been turned off. T^he girls  had to sleep on the floor in the staff room  and the boys on the stage floor. We were  disappointed we couldn't play basketball  on the gym flo^p because the principal  thought we might damage it. At Quesnel  we went to a Chinese restaurant for supper and then' we skated at the ice arena'.  We had a' very restful sleep that night.  THIRD DAY (TETE JAUNE CACIJE)  The next day we went to Tete Jaune  Cache. It was a snowy day so we couldn't  see much scenery; We had hamburgers  for supper at 7ttie school. While supper  was,cooking, th4bbyfl made a snow fort.  The supervisors decided that the one-  room school was too small for 'everybody  so the girls went to a nearby motel to  sleep. 7 .  FOURTH DAY (EDGEWATER)  On the way to pEdgewater we saw  : mostly snow on the ground, At Jasper  we bought some souvenirs. We saw lots  of deer nnd, big-horned sheep of. tho area.  Everybody took pictures of thpm. At Ed-  gowater we had supper at the community hall and it was the best one wo had  on the whole trip, We vteltcd Radium  Hot Springs and went swimming, after  which a man talked to ua about the area  and .showed us Borne flhns. We had'a  good sleep that night In the school,  FIFTH DAY (CRESTON)  On tho way to Croston wo stopped to  go skating at Pontlcton. It was more  ��� fun than the other rlnka bocauoo iho ico;  was flo much smoother, Afterwards wo  wonttfl Lake Wasa for lunch, When wo  arrived ��t Croston It was a busy city, We  put our gear In the school, then; wont  ncropa the'street'to tho Dairy Queen for  supper,      .  BIXTH( DAY   (OSOYOOS)  It' was a sunny day In Osoyoos wjth  a slight breeze, When we were almost  thoro, Mark stopped tho bus and wo were  all able to tour around. Just a few feet  away there waa a cliff. Being careful, wo  went to the edge of it where we could  see all of Osoyoos. The view on all sides  of the bus showed beautiful green mountains,-and on one side there was the  State of Washington. When we arrived  at Osoyoos, we immediately went to the  school where we were to sleep. After getting settled, we walked to a museum  where we examined all the exhibits, then  off we went to a restaurant for supper.  After a lovely evening pf bowling, we  walked back to the school and slept well.  SEVENTH DAY (HOPE)  We left for Hope today. When we arrived, we set up our gear in the school  gym, which resembled a great dome. For  supper we visited Smitty's Pancake  House.  EIGHTH DAY (HOME)  When we, got up this morning, we  went straight oyer' to Smitty's Pancake  ��� House for breakfast. On our way home,  we saw some nice' scenery which was a  lot'like the scenery around Madeira Park.  At Harrison Hot Springs we went swimming. From there we drove to the ferry.  When we arrived home we told our par-'  ents all about the trip. It was good to be  home. It was a fun experience for us all! -  Pofo tA-6 The Peniaeula Time*  Wednesday, May 8,, 1974  Joan Proctor  ... Strait talk  I SHOULD never have papered my  office walls with old newspaper  ads. Every time, I'm seated at my  typewriter I'm exposed to a riepeat  .pattern of old Ypsilanti Health Un-  ,. derwear. Their slogan reads "Tho  loye grow cold do not despair, there's  Ypsilanti Underwear." I don't know  what the ad man had _in, mind, but in t  this day of the no-bra look, it wouldn't  hold much persuasion.  -On one of my recent wanderings I  , happened to nip into the lingerie department and had what could only  be described as a brief encounter. T  can honestly see why some folks have  stopped bothering with undergarments. The things they are selling  are barely there. Ybu might jixs>ji as  well wear only the elastic. Of course  I realize the price of material has  gone up, but this is ridiculous'. And  it's not just ladies wear that's shrink-  Men's shorts have become just  that,' What happened to all those old  boxers and long Johns? Yes/ I know  . you can buy the latter at the bakery.  , The big seller of the "70s, it appears*  'is. the bikini brief.  Getting right to the seat of the  problem I'd say material must be in  , very short supply, so not wanting the  bottom to fall out of their market,  - the undie manufacturers began using  extra powie colors and prints. Not too  long ago I thought a leopard print  was pretty wild. Well, believe me,  the things they have on them now  probably shouldn't even be sat in.  I ask you, what kind of fellow  could actually be comfortable wearing underwear patterned with the  Union Jack or Maple Leaf motif? He  could find himself subjected to a flag  debate everytime he hits the locker  room. And parades would be dynamite. He'd have to stand at attention  constantly. .  One line of trendy unmentionables  I noticed is so naughty it's been XT-  rated. You can't even get in to see  it unless you're over 18 years of age.  So, I lied.  wriHiiiwffw-8iiia->wa8-_a  i      i  B8  ^^^^  FS2-Srgas^r'r  mi^^^^^nm^^^M  \  gainiHiiimuiiimmiimiiimiiiniiim  3  U>W BED SERVICE    ��    CONTRACT HAULING  PHONE: 885-9439  B  lUIIJIIilBj^      .

Section B  Wednesday, May 8, 1974  Pages 1-8  .Restricted iilm  by Allan Crane  THE largest audience of the season for a  film society presentation saw W. C.  Fields and May West in My Little Chickadee last Wednesday.  Unfortunately, the trouble-free presentation for which we had" hoped after  the previous week's non-show was marred by a print which was badly scratched  on all the odd-numbered reels due to  carelessness in a previous screening. A  letter of protest has been sent to the distributors, Universal Studios, and we offer apologies to our patrons, the great  majority of whom, however, seem nevertheless to have enjoyed the film immensely.  A second short feature, Laurel and  Hardy's award winning' The Music Box  was despatched by bus from -Vancouver  April 29. It had been planned to show  . this before My Little Chickade, but it  has still not arrived. This film has been  re-booked, and we will play it with the  Marx Brothers A Day at the Races on  May 29 if Vancouver Film Council have  been able to track it down by that time.  Please note that tonight's film Sunday, Bloody Sunday is restricted and,, carries the rather ambiguous warning from  the censor of motion pictures, "Sex in  volving three people. Some swearing and  coarse language". In fact, the film is a-  bout a bisexual young man and the man  and woman with whom he is carrying on  relationships, and features particularly  good performances from Glenda Jackson  and Peter Finch.  The film society is hoping to show its  appreciation for the support of patrons  and to compensate for the disappointment  of those who waited in in vain for King  Lear on April 24 by screening this film  for our patrons without charge on Wednesday June 5, the week after our final  program of the season was planned to  conclude.

Sunshine  Coast Lions Club (Sechelt) has raised $896  to date, still under last year's $972 mark  bulf with still some time to go. Pender  Harbour has $188 to date topping last  year's mark of $177.92.

There is such a facility with a good  and growing inventory of books. It is  only used a few hours a day and if various  communities pool their resources it can  be expanded and branch offices set up.  The facility we are speaking of, of,  course, is Elphinstone Secondary School  library and branch offices are the elementary schools,-Pender Secondary and  the proposed Sechelt junior high.  Money can be available from the two  villages, regional district and school district. Why not pool these resources and  develop a good library system to serve  the Coast. Apparently the -provincial  government has dollars to help buy books  and build.libraries���so it appears that we  have a 'natural.,.  Elphinstone library could be open to  the public with the addition of a part-  time clerk. It could be the central library for adult books which could be rotated amongst local libraries. When the  junior high school is built in Sechelt it  would be an excellent, depository! for  books.  As far as the elementary schools are  concerned, their libraries can be used for  children including pre-schoolers. Pender  Harbour Secondary can also be incorporated in the system.  Such a program would not be unique  to this area, it is done in several school  districts in the province..;. so there is  no real reason such a system would not  work here.  If you agree with such a system, you  should contact your school trustee and  regional district representative.  We heed proper library facilities and  incorporating the school system appears  to be the cheapest and quickest way of  doing it.  rag�� B-__- .      The Peninsula, Times  Wednesday, May 8, 1974  THE TIMES is favored with a fair flow  of letters from its readers. Newspapers like to publish letters, even when  they disagree with their editorial views.  The editorial page has as its purpose:  the stimulation of thought, as well as the  advocation of the newspaper's own opinion.  Letters provoke thinking and they  are evidence of ��� readers' interest. When  you get the urge to write, here are a few  tips to keep in mind:  Keep it short and to the point. Write  like you talk���don't try to write like a  college professor.  Avoid sarcasm. This is very hard to  <B   8WW W.  handle, even for accomplished reporters.  You make a bad impression, if you start  out to hurt somebody's feelings.,  Make your first comment,or argument your most telling in a controversy,  and strike at the other's weakest argument.  Sign your name. You may request  that your name be withheld in which case  the editor will honor your request; otherwise he will not use the letter at alL  _ Don't be hesitant to write when you  feel strongly on a public issue. You would  be surprised to know how much influence  a citizen's letter wields in a newspaper.  Letters to the Editor are the opinions of readers, and not necessarily those of The Times. A  nom-de-piume may be used for publication, but all originals must be signed by the writer.  W/iy don't they?  TO ADD to the list (or remove items)  call The Times at 885-9654,  885-  2635, 886-2121 or write Box 310, .Sechelt.  WHY DONT THEY? ���  ���-Put a traffic signal at Wharf Street  and Highway 101?  ���Realize that driving 30 m.p.h. in  a 50 m.p.h. zone is dangerous?

WE TRY to say each week what we  think,  honestly.  In consequence we are frequently reproached through letters, telephone calls  and encounters at functions by people  who claim they have been offended by  what we write.  The deepest stabs invariably are made  by people who interpret generalities as  insults to themselves. They overlook the  fact that generalities are the woof and  warp of all conversation and all forms  of communication. r:v." v- -   . -  Any reader who is hurt by one of  these generalities and considers that the  barb is aimed at him personally, is in the  grip of an over-weening vanity.  An editorial writer mupt hold strong,  clear opinions on a wide range of topics.  The moment, he is tempted to modify  these oponions to gratify some people,  he should abandon the.chore and start  writing bland speeches for company executives.  If an editorial writer writes a painful truth he' finds some people doubly  ready to take his point as a slight upon  themselves.  . We are not out to win any popularity , poll through our editorials, but we  will continue to state our yiewpoints on  community happenings,! and issues. Those  who do hot agree with us certainly have  access to the letf^rps-to-the-editor columns. For our part, we will continue to  tell it the way we see it. 7 ��� ?���  Ad held deceiving  Editor, The Times,  Sir: Oh, what a tangled web we weave.  When first we practice to deceive.  ��� - I aim relating this to an (almost full  page) advertisement I read in the Coast  News'paper. Re: Teachers recruitment,  page. 8, April 24, 1974. The advertisement  was by the department of education and  was deceiving! From the Hon. Eileen  Dailly, minister.  Fact is, you must have a BA to have  an application accepted and, something  Mke 15 out of every thousand applications  will be considered.  I must admit that I may sound prejudiced, perhaps because my spouse (of:  late) and three others, had an application  for a government grant turned down two  years ago. It was a project for conservation of our environment; also beneficial.  Please understand that the only reason  I'm writing this to you instead of the  Coast News is that it may be out o_  '      JL  armed forces, particularly their heavy  weapons? Now the money we give them  releases funds for arms. Their collective  armies could not fight their way out of  a paper bag, so why subsidize them, either directly or indirectly?  Just one more national item, current  and urgent right now. Why don't we make  a  king-size effort  to  recycle our  das-  ' carded steel? One estimate figured that  there were as many as 10,000 discarded  automobiles on the Sechelt Peninsula  alone. We shipped scrap metal to the  Japanese prior to the -last war; they returned it in the form of war missiles.  International again; why don't they  specify the type of container used for each  1 product, thus saving what it now wasted  because the neck of the container is too  small, and 'the container too deep.    \  -This is enough, for now, "except for  the suggestion that you ask other readers  to write and tell you about their coxn-  plaihts. '  'cents. Possibly you think the public-is'  more interested in dollars and cents than  in right, or wrong but as I don't happen  to think we have all been, reduced -to  that level I would like to, take this opportunity to give your readers the facts.  . On April 11 a "special meeting of the  regional board was called with a notice  sent out by *the chairman' on April 9.  (This is giving directors one day's notice  where five days are required to make the  meeting legal, also,.the secretary for obvious reasons is the person entrusted with  notifying all directors���not a board member). Prior to that meeting it came to  my attention that existing board policy  had been changed without reference to  the board and another had been put into  effect. The secretary advised me he had  been instructed- ,to do this by Director  West I should point out here that Director West is only1 one eighth, of the regional board and has absolutely no more  .authority to instruct the secretary to reverse policy than I have, we both have  only one vote on the board. If this kind  of thing is allowed to go without a whimper being heard from other directors then  the board is a farce, the public is being  misled and democracy is out of the window. It is quite obvious to me, and must  be  equally   obvious  to  other  directors,  that the secretary must have been pressured into carrying out a policy not authorized by the board. He is certainly unlikely to. have made these changes on  his own initiative so that it is in this  connection my . concern lies-^where does     .      ,  this stop and what other policy has'been    chamber  changed without the knowledge of the   centre,  board?  The second point raised at both the  special meeting of April 11 and the regular meeting was the one of attendance  at "committee meetings by invitation. Here  again dollars and cents have nothing-at  all to do with it. It is of importance that  all eight directors are properly .informed  of all public business being conducted  and to say a director may attend by in-  ��� yitation of the committee chairman leaves  it open to abuse, by invitations being extended to directors whose area is not involved in the function under discussion  but withheld from those whose areas are  directly concerned and whose views are  known to be in opposition "to the committee chairman's ideas.  Public apathy to local government,  regrettably has to be accepted, but apathy by elected officials to the proper  conduct of their meetings to discuss public-business is deplorable.  RITA P.

'  - Another fisherman who received a  shock was Al Mackerith who had gone out  through Welcome Pass in his 12-foot aluminum boat one evening without getting  a nibble. He had turned homeward when  he ,heard a sound close by. Looking over  his shoulder, he was startled to see a  Whale only 20 feet behind him and practically under his line. It submerged but  came up twice more to blow. "It's a  whale of a fishing story," says Al.  When Mrs. Thea Leuchte was visiting a friend in West Vancouver last week,  they were involved in an accident when  her friend's car was in collision with another car and they were both taken to  - Lions' Gate Hospital.

Garden Bay  A HOMETOWN newspaper is a unique  form of making people aware of what's  happening in the community, v It entourages  participation in "groups,  clubs and  get-togethers. The paper has a way of  drawing  everyone together to  make it  a close-knit community. The want ads in-  'form people of what is for sale, wanted,  etc. If this were not so, then can you  imagine a person going from door-to-door  - asking, everyone if they had a car to sell?  '. A   local  paper   gives   recognition   to  people and places. Some stores and businesses would be pretty poor if not for  a&rertisements.   -,  The younger children work hard towards goals, just so they can have their  pictures in the paper. This ,is important  to them because it makes them proud,  not to -mention their parents when .they,  see it'. It gives everyone" a good feeling.  '���A paper is nearly always.full of use  ful information.- You can always find  something of interest for yourself in the  local paper. If you were new,to the Peninsula, the best way to find out the* sort  of place it really is is to read up on it  in the news.  In general, you are more aware of  your surroundings, the people you live  with and the opinions of others. The paper1 also gives you a chance to express  your own opinions and encourages you  ' to give them.  It helps you realize that you live in  a truly beautiful community even though  you might not realize it. The Sechelt Pen-  . insula is a very unique place with all of  its own character '  The Peninsula Times helps to express  this character.   _.      ��� ;  SECHELT���-Ragnhild'Johansen was fined  4250' at provincial court7and banned  from driving-for one'month: when she  pleaded -guilty to driving with a blood  alcohol, level aboVe .08.  - Vaughn Mallory Tardif f - netted a $100  fine for impaired driving and wilfull  damage at the Peninsula Hotel.

SECHELT���Witli the construction of the  7 new arena, well underway, it won't be  long before the residents of the Sunshine  Coast will have ice available nearly year-  round to skate on rather than just the  periodic sessions .at Trout Lake.  As soon as' the', ice goes down it is  anticipated that a good number of boysi  and probably girls, will be wanting to  play hockey- ,or join in on skating'-prog- *  rams and also figure .skating.. So steps  have already been taken' to set up a rnin-  ' or hockey association which will be a sep-,  arate body from the arena ��� association:'  : The minor hockey association will be run  and organized by an executive which  will be elected bjr the.general public,  and will be sanctioned .and" registered  with' the B.C. Amateur Hockey Association. , ���" l  A committee recently appointed by  the directors of .the arena association  made up of both non-debenture holders  and debenture holders, has called for a  general meeting of* any interested persons'; whether coaches, former players or  generally anyone who would like to be  associated in minor hockey on the Sunshine Coast; for May 8 at 7 p.m. at the  old Legion hall. ,  Any; .parents whose children intend to  take part in the minor hockey, program  or possibly figure skating are encouraged  to come to the meeting and make any  suggestions or comments as to the proposed organization.  Anyone   with   past   exeprience   who  ' feels'they might add some-strength in  the' initial formation might call Jim Gray  at 885-9308 anytime during the day.

The minute you pick up .that paper* to read it you''  are immediately f made aware pf the  many problems-facing each and every  one of us in our day-to-day living.  It's the people who live in smaller  communities and,./rural areas���they are'  the hometown newspaper: To read about  them, is to, share their joys, sadness,  dreams and aspirations, you- experience  a true feeling o_ /empathy, as you are  'one' together, trying to create a better,  place to live, raise your families, or' retire. 'u" ' '.    ,  Most people in small communities are  transplants from the big city whose voice  was lost in the din of traffic, politicians,  and big business*..A small community paper gives you back' that voice -which was  muffled by city'sounds. If you,don't agree with the local city council, or whatever municipal office there is in your  area, you can phone or go and visit them.'  After all, they are people you see every  day doing their shopping, and living their  lives exactly as ybu do.'.They are-not removed to some far-off tower of cement  and steel, where you need to get a pass  from a guard before gaining admittance  to a secretary's office, only to be told,  they will take your complaint and Call  you ... a call that never" comes. ���  Transplants you have a voice again,  and it's the small hometown newspaper  that gives you a chance to use it.  ' It is a real pleasure for me to pick  up our small weekly paper, look at the  front page, and se6 pictures of, people we  know and respect, some hardworking  members of the community,, some not so  hard working; to read stories about our,  children, garden and service clubs and  municipal business. All good stories la-  bout' people like you and me. Not about  war and bloodshed, murder, strikes, political parties fighting for control, crisis  after crisis. The big city . newspapers  thrive on sadness, despair and sensationalism.  That's why I am grateful every week  when I pick' up my local hometown news-  -' paper.- I still see my friends and' neighbors proceeding with the ordinary business of living and loving their fellow human beings doing small acts of kindness  (which   are   still   recognized, in   small  " towns). Not just a sensational Good Joe  story once a year. Just people .helping  people create a better small community.  Our values and dreams are basically  the same. It's just that somehow, in a big  city, they happen to get muffled by all  that noise. In a small, growing commun-.  ity, if you feel the editor of your hometown paper, is not- representing true  thoughts or desires of the people, you can  pull'him up short, by stopping him in the  supermarket and complaining about the  price of beef, then let him have your opinion. Or' just walk into his office and  ^ tell him���look, it's us, your neighbors,  we are your newspaper, ask us what we  think about.  So remember, our small hometown,  newspapers depend on us, we are the  stories, we are the newspaper, and we  haveta voice, so let us not be remiss in  our duty to ourselves and our community,  we must strive to keep them all golden.

Norma Gaines set the pace. This was  the first of several scheduled pinround  days. '   i  HoWe Soundings  The way of the transgressor may be  hard���but it sure isn't lonely. '  PEOPLE who went to the concert', last  > Sunday afternoon were disappointed���  not in the orchestra, but because so few  people were'there to' enjoy ,it., The 33  musicians, aged 11-19, were members of  the^ Vancouver. Youth Orchestra who had  been attending the first festival of Canadian youth orchestras, held in Banff.'  At the festival, nine bands from all  over.Canada took part. Conductor Gaspare  Ohiarelli explained that these members  gave .a .concert' at Penticton and,one at  Kamloops. The Gibsons concert, sponsored  by the Sunshine Coast, Arts Council, was  the last of the series before the orchestra  returned to Vanoouver7  The "string section, comprising of violin,  viola, cello and bass, occupied the floor  of the elementary.school. gym along with'  the piano. On the stage was the brass section���trumpet, horn and tromboner^and  the woodwinds,'consisting of piccolo, flute,  oboe, clarinet and bassoon. "   (  The program consisted of nine pieces'  of great variety, some traditional, some  very-modern . ancl all' demanding '.great-  technical ability!",'The audience, though  small, was made-up of people from preschool age to senior .citizens; their experiences in concert-going were varied, yet  they were.all amazed at the performance  of these musicians.  Without Mr. Chiarelli's enlightening  remarks, we would not have been^ able to  appreciate all the selections. One piece  was played by improvising on a given written theme. While the conductor, sat in the  background, the players did'free interpretations which balanced,and blended according to the pattern'. Our fears "that they  inight not all finish together were unfounded.  The, students who played at Gibsons  were named from a very select company.  Their talent was unmistakable, and their  enjoyment ;in playing was even more so.  These fortunate boys and girls, with their  _  .������- by Margaret Jones  skill to entertain themselves and others,  will always be busy and happy; not for  them" thev 'nothing-to-do' blues.  Socially secure \vith their own builtsin  recreation centre, they do not rely on any  special equipment except their instrument.  They can relax and recreate themselves  wherever - they are for- the rest. of their  lives.  ,    Whereas in organized sport, the game -  cannot start with a full team, the musi-  - cian .can play alone (indeed he' has to),  or in a group, where team-work takes  on a special meaning. In most sports,-too,  the season has a definite beginning and  an end, but it is always open season for  music.  The constant challenge to improve can  . be met in city or in outpost, in winter  or "in summer. Each step forward opens���  up ^ exciting glimpses of new heights to  -conquer, like a mountaineer who has a  . vision of the view from the top.  A .child who has learned to read  music'and can play an instrument bears  a torch that will ward off the terrors of  loneliness and boredom; though its flame  may burn low, it can always be fanned  into life. His knowledge will stand him  . in good stead, like a faithful friend whose  . loyalty never wavers.  ��� There is no denying that, at the beginning, the going is rough, but a little  progress works wonders. As they say in  the .business world, nothing succeeds like  success. The road they follow may not  lead to the Toronto Symphony, but in  amateur musical circles, they will be welcomed with open arms.'  In days gone by, musical /evenings  were part of family life.
