' Trustee Peter Prescesky told the  board's April 11 meeting that tenders for  the project will close May 10. His building  committee' will jthen recommend acceptance of one' of them to the board May  16.  Details of the succcessful tender will  be sent to Victoria for approval. The department of education, go-ahead is expected within a week of that time, he  said,- "allowing the signing of a contract  and a start on construction by May 23."  Trustees accepted a.tender of $71,025  from Canadian Refractories of Alberta  for supply and delivery of Giant Brick  for wall construction in the school  A tender of $75,607 was also received  from Medicine, Hat,Tile and Brick.  This  material  was  pre-tendered  be  cause of anticipated delay's in availability.  Prescesky noted that Canadian Ref-  raclors' tender was "reasonably close" to  the architects' estimated cost of $69,284.  In other business, the board agreed to  grant an easement to the Village of Gibsons for construction Of a drainage ditch  across the top of the proposed new playing fields at Elphinstone.  The ditch is expected to carry off  much of the surface water that flows down  to the village's upper area. '  Secretary-treasurer Jim Metzler said:  "This will save us a lot of trouble with  digging our own ditches."  Principal Malcolm' Mactavish- of Roberts Creek Elementary School reported  that a group of his pupils recently returned from a field trip to Victoria.

A motion made by .Director Charles  .Gooding of Area C (Selma Park-Davis'  Bay) calling for the proposal was passed  four to two with only Director Norm  Watson of Sechelt and Director Harry  Almond of Roberts Creek opposing it. ���  Voting in favor of the motion were  Lome Wolverton, Area F, (Port Mellon-  Gambier); Gooding, Rita Relf, Area B,  . (Halfmoon Bay) and Kurt Hoehne, Gibsons. Absent from the meeting was Jim  Tyner of Pender Harbour. Frank West of  Area E was in the chair.  West brought the matter up when he  said that he saw no reason why he should  be ��� paid for attending every committee  meeting. As chairman he is ex-officio  of every committee.  "Some meetings," he said, "I'm requir  ed to be there."  Directors are paid $25 for each,board  meeting' and each committee meeting. The  chairman of the board is paid slightly  more. ,  West added that board members  should not be paid for attending, committee meetings unless they were members  of that committee or if they were invited  to attend.  At' that ' point, Gooding spoke tip  sharply: "I object to that ruling," he said  and got up from the board table and  slammed a cheque for $25 down on Secretary Eric Willmott's desk.  The cheque was sent to .him, he told  the board, for his attendance at a committee meeting and written oh "the cheque  was "By the invitation of the chairman."  Gooding felt that as a director he was  entitled to attend any meeting without  an invitation and if he did attend the  meeting he should be paid for' it.  Director Relf said that last year she  opposed such a proposal "but you (West)  s ���see page A-2  Public interests queried  icipality with financial problems that will  take years to rectify, it was revealed April 9.  "The public should be made aware  that we are not in good shape" finance  chairman Kurt Hoehne told council. "It  will be quite some time before'we are  on the road to recovery."  He said taxes in the village had been  artificially low during that five-year period because councils of the day failed to  make major expenditures to provide and  upgrade essential services such as water  and sewers.  Comparing ��� the ��� development of Gibsons with that of four villages of similar  size���Cumberland, Parksville, Ashcroft  and Osoyoos���'Hoehne noted: "All the  villages were looking at water and sewer  right along, except Gibsons. We were the  only village with a downward trend in  '��� taxes." 7     ; ���;  The alderman,was explaining why,the  system.  "The mill rate was 10.11 in 1959," he  said.' "By 1964, it had dropped to 6.93.  Then, the next year, it shot up to 18.71  andr crept up from 'there."  . Although the local mill rate eventually  equalled and surpassed those of the other  municipalities, "we couldn't make up for  five years (of low taxes) in such a short  time."  Because installation of the sewer system had been postponed until late 1971,  council did not now have the borrowing  power to finance water system upgrading, he said.  Hoehne charged that previous councils'  policy of keeping   taxes    down   "'has  , brought us to this stage of fighting for  survival to get water."    . "���,.''.  "The- public should be made aware  ' that we axe not in good shape. We can't'  catch up with what other, councils have  lost in one or two years.

"I am sure their new location will permit easier access for our senior citizens  and, as the building location will now be  more prominently on display, It will certainly receive more attention from our  local residents.

'  ' The finance committee chairman felt  that additional revenue derived from recently increased water- rates would enable council to make a start on upgrading  the water system.  In order to make,'up for lost time, the ,  mill rate in Gibsons would have <to exceed the average for towns of similar  size for some time, he said.  This year's mill rate might climb as  high as 20.96, predicted Hoehne in out- ���  lining the upcoming provisional budget,  Originally, a rate of 33.96 ' was proposed, but this was reduced to comply  with the statutory maximum'of 30. Last  year's mill rate was 28.85.  Budget cuts necessary tp reduce the.,  mill rate included expenditure for a .new  pick-up'truck for the works crew, mobile  radio equipment to link ;ihe crew with  village hall: These two 'savings,, alone,  amount to almost $10,000. ,     '  Roads'.... coiranittee chairman Aid.

Upgrading  Shaw ffoad was one of thp main priori-'  ties In this area, he felt.' ',  "Residents on Shaw Road have the  right to have a good road," he said. "Right  now, it's a bloody: disgrace."  , The alderman felt Hoehne should cut  proposed repaying of Gower Point Road'  rather than reduce the gravel road main-,  tenanco budget, .  Hoehno /agreed to reinstate the full  roads maintenance budget proposed by  'Humo.'    / . ���������..���..,  In other business, alderman gnvcflriyt  reading to a bylaw amendment increasing  "i Vt p_f i~J-  rena manager  I wdr]  >..JVU, f...  ���S..tZ��j^t.-��'j.e \ ���_��  He- has been - involved in citizens'  planning and action groups in Vancouver;  was past director of citizens council on  civic development and was a member of  the- executive of the citizens' coordinating committee for public transit.

(See editorial)  While not denying that he was fired,  Phillips told The Times that the arena  is not supplying the needs of the community "but is being constructed for the  benefit of a select group."  Phillips claims^ he was fired because  he was concerned' more, with ice skating  and recreational facilities for children  than with the interests of the association.  "Dixon (Gordon Dixon,' president of  the association) called the meeting last  week to discuss my situation because they  felt that I hadn't done anything."  Phillips said that one of the jobs he  h.ad been appointed to was to sell advertising to merchants on 4'x8' , plywood  panels at $200: each,  "I approached some, of the businessmen but even a merchant who was active  In the setting up the association, would  not go for that," he said. '���','���',  , Hall sold that Phillips was instructed  ���to go to the school board and propose  skating and'curling programs for students  for when the arena opened, .  "I told the association that there was  no way that I would get .behind;, the project unless It is fulfilling the needs of the  community."  . He said that the curling was sold out  and there would be no way for members  of the public to curl.  "It's impossible to teach children to  play hockey or figure skate or have open  skating on the small section of ice' they  left at the end of the curling rink."  Phillips was hired in March and when,  his appointment was announced to The  Times, Dixon said: "philips.. . will be  assisting on the constriction of the arena.  When the arena is copvpleted, Phillips  will take over all administrative functions within the buildfpg, administer staff  and develop a school pjrqgram."  Phillips was hired at $900 per month  for the first three months, or until the  arena was constructed, and then his salary  would increase to $(4|0P month, Dixon  . told' The Times wheh1 |hp was hired,  ; Phillips is a forpsjt'    Canadian ice-  skating champion and member of the  Olympic Canadian figure skating team'  and a principal performer with Shipstad  ; and Johnson's ice reywe. Before being  hired here, he was ,0er.eral manager of  Charles Shulz' Redwood Empire Arena  in Santa Rosa, Calif, where he supervised a staff of 00 persons and integrated  lce-skatlng! in,to "high school and college  ' credit, programs.    .  Phillips feels 'that he was hired merely  to lend credibility to the arena.  ���,..���'��� Besides a general manager, the association also announced that they would  hire a full-time tcemaker and a clerk.

Superintendent Roland Hanna denied  that thero was nn unusually high dropout  rate from local high schools,  "The statement that n large number  aro copping out at Klphlnstono ls not  supported by facts," ho said,  Quoting from statistics prepared by  Elphinstone principal Don Montgomery,  Hanna noted that of the 1 lf> students who  left tho school between September 1073  and April 1074, 30 withdrew after grodu-  .bgnlzed In .tlio.lower, grades of secondary*  school?

"But thoy r-ooo pngo A-8  drop out to work because they're not do  ing well at school, If they wcro doing  well, thoy wouldn't leave."  Trustee John MacLeod said a lot of  grade 12 students weighed the advantages  of remaining at school against going to  work, and decided to leave,  "The money la pretty good and they  find It attractive," ho said.

Director-  (Ben) Lang and I opposed the plan:"  _    Relf showed minutes of April 10, 1973  meeting indicating? that certain members  attended every committee meeting. V  Relf said she was' opposed to it then  but "Wolverton (then chairman) said he*  was entitled to attend every meeting.  "I received a cheque (for attending  committee) meeting) which read 'By in-'  vitation of the chairman.' When I brought  it up,- I was shouted down."  She added that-the chairman is "meddling and changing board policy."  West replied that the. inscription on  the cheque should .have read "By invitation of committee chairman."  Gooding said that we wished to know  when committees are meeting,' "and if I  wish to attend one, I'll attend it."  ' "Everyone can attend... but can participate only when invited by the chair- *  man," replied West.  "You and Wolverton attended the com-,  mittee meetings last year and you were '  paid,"   said   Relf.   "Suddenly  it  doesn't  suit you any more. You're meddling in  the administration, Mr. Chairman.''  She added that anyone (board member) should be allowed to attend 'and  not just by invitation of the chairman."  Almond said that if a committee can  get long without him they can go ahead. <  "I don't feel I should be paid for attending a committee meeting unless I was  invited,1' or was a member of the committee. -  "West did (attended all meetings) last  year and the year before," charged Good- r  ing.  "I disgaree," West replied.-"I only remember attending meetings where I was  invited."  "That's not-so," interjected Relf.  "I can only say thatv when I was  invited to- meetings, I was rung up in  the morning and reminded of the meeting," West stated. "I always got a telephone call and was invited.. I have nothing, more to say on the matter."  Gooding then moved with a second  by Relf that all members of the board  are entitled to attend any committee meeting and if they do so, they should be paid  for them.  The motion passed by    the four to  - two vote.  Gooding was also critical of the April  lljneeting which was, he charged, "illegally called."  "There should be five days' notice of  a special meeting. I received only one'  day's notice. There was no reason to  have called a'meeting on ' such shdrt  notice." -  Willmott said that the notices were  put in the* mail' April 5.  West suggested' that when another  special meeting is called all directors  should be contacted by telephone.  The meeting was called to approve  hiring of the planner and to pass the revised water rates bylaw which was approved by lieutenant-governor in council  on April 3.  The revised water rate bylaw was  passed unanimously. ,  "<**'��? *��v  _k *,�� ��r * ��__.  >* tn i_:m  \ v-*. _j.i*? * **�����* a { j4* ^  - $<i-#-:__J  7' foM  * It     ��!, -  tv   ���  *  '-M-  ._ \  <.  *  k  fi  M  tf1:  u  V  -����.   ��  a**.*.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for  our kids to get summer employment and  for us to get help on the grounds," commented superintendent Roland Hanna.  "We should put in all the kids we can  get."  He instanced the upper playing fields  and tennis courts at Elphinstone as projects where student labor could be used  to advantage.  The employment program runs during  July and August. - -  Secretary-treasurer Jim Metzler noted  that only four students had taken advantage of the program last year because the  highways department was hiring extensively at a higher rate of pay.  Hanna said the department already  had a long list of job applicants for this  year, and he predicted increased participation in the school district program. >  PLANS .FO^ international cpmmuni-,  ty press week in Canada were dis- ���  cussed with "Prime .Minister" Pierre ->.

Ono moro word, tho last  square danco, April 2(1, See you there,  "splnchalnthru," for now,  25 percent mobility . . ���  Canadians  most noma  THE TREND towards decentralization of  industry and commerce has accelerated  to the point where Canadians are the  most nomadic society on earth, according  to John Goodwin of Sechelt Agencies Ltd,  Canada's mobility rate, as indicated  by family allowance statistics, is just over  25 percent. If the general tendency continues,' Canadian families will be moving  once every three years.  "Last year, approximately 21,77?  households were relocated from one'city  to another���-inter-city ! moves. Although  close to, 750,000 families ;changed their  places "of residence, the vast majority  , moved intra-provlnclally, or from one part  of a city to another section of the same  city," said Goodwin,  A survey by Coast to Coast Real Estate  Service reveals , that over half the trips  originate In Toronto, Montreal or Ottawa  with 20 per cent accounted, for by 'VV'ln-  nipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and ,  10 per cent by Halifax and Quebec,  Coast to Coast Real Estate Service ls  an association of over 100 leading realtors  in 187 offices across Canada, said Good-  '' win,'  ' 7' '    '" '  ���    7 7 ���'  The'disparity In house prices between  major urban areas across' Canada ls rapidly narrowing, Whereas a few yoars ago  there was a wide variance In house prices  In Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, as  much as 00 Tporccnt between Montreal  and Toronto and 25 percent between' Toronto and Vancouver, in little time this  spread1 will have declined to something  '-loss"thnn~10-per*cont "from"city*to city;  Toronto and Vancouver prices have increased 20 to 25 percent in tho las,t year.

';  Although Toronto and Vancouver  house prices now average $38,000 to  $45,000, a $25,000 home on'a 6,000 square  foot lot is still attainable in the Montreal  area.        '  It is important for, those responsible  for the welfare of their employees to retain the most competent advice available.

Hume said Gibsons had a dog control  bylaw, but it was impossible to enforce  without, a dogcatcher and suitable pound  facilities.  Added Aid. Kurt Hoehne: "People  think if we pass a bylaw, everything will  be remedied. But there is no point passing a bylaw if we can't enforce it."  Hume said it "was all very well talking  about spending money on dog control,  "but we haven't got the money."  , He suggested that.local,residents-who  were concerned about the problem should  try to encourage dog owners to control  their own pets.  Hoehne said people would be "shocked  out of their boots" if they realized! the  cost of providing dog control facilities.  "It requires an extensive building and  in Vancouver, the starting salary for a  pound keeper is $750 a month," added  Hume. "Dogs that are not claimed have  to be disposed of and it costs $1,400 to  buy just one piece of equipment to kill  animals.'r   ���  He said that Sechelt council and the  regional district were concerned about  the dog problem^ too. ���  "We will have to come up with proper  pound facilities on the Peninsula," he felt.  JOINING IN THE spmt of things at  Sechelt Elementary School's 50's-  style dance April 10 is principal Sam  Reid. His students sported slicked-  back hair, "bower boots" and any  reminders they could muster of the  rock and roll era. Appropriate music  was supplied by Mark Evans and his  group from Elphinstone Secondary  School. They donated their time. EL-  ected Mr. and Miss 50's were Tommy  Gibbons and Sherry Stevens.

The money was granted to the joint  airport committee by the department of  transport.  If Sechelt council approves the transfer, $500 will be retained in the airport  account for contingencies.  MORE   ABOUT. . .  Dropouts not serious  ���from page A-l,  elementary schools fall into this category?  .  ���How many children are now in secondary  school and are  unable to cope  because of such disability?  ���How many have left school because  of their disability, say in the last three  years? Would' they have stayed if there  had been help for them?"  If this information was available, she  asked if the board was considering means  of helping the pupils so they could fully  participate in the school system.  ' Mrs. Reid suggested several possible  means of encouraging "problem" students  to remain at school.  ���Co-operation between home and  school with full community support.  . _���Co-ordination-between-.teachers _and   parents and efforts to interest the community "in the problem of these young  people whose frustrations... will inevi- .  tably be felt by the community at large,  most probably in the form of senseless  vandalism."  She urged the board to keep parents  and teachers informed of experiments and  work with older problem students in  other parts of the country.  Manpower officials, vocational school  representatives and other , appropriate  bodies should be. brought in to discuss  the problems of individual children who  are approaching the school leaving age,  she felt.  "Obviously, the board has many responsibilities, as do the teachers," she said.  "But surely these older children's needs  are important enough for the board to  take the initiative to organize teachers,  parents and interested persons from tiie  community to explore ways and means  to cope with the problems as they affect  both the in-school community and the  larger community in which they  live."  Mrs. Reid stressed that teachers should  not be criticized for the problem.  "They are doing a good job with the  resources- they have at hand," she added.  Montgomery's full summary of withdrawn students from September 1973 to  April 1974 is as follows:  Graduated 29; completing graduation  by correspondence 6; transferred to other  schools 38; left for employment 17; personality/home problems 15; learning disabilities 1; medical 4 (including two pregnancies); marriage 1; taking other courses  "3; auditing students 2; unknown 1.  . Total number of students to leave Elphinstone during the eight-month period  was 115. Thirty-four students came to the  school from other areas.  "Dropout loss is not a very great factor," commented Hanna.  Chairman Agnes Labonte felt: "Let's  not just say there is no problem, that it  doesn't exist."  Hanna said Montgomery's figures were  not a refutation of Mrs. Reid's comments.  "They are just for the information- of  the board."  He said that many students, when they  reached the leaving age, became disinterested in school, particularly if they  had to repeat a grade.       ���- -.-.  ~c     'They're better off gainfully employed," he felt.

The reflective decals, if placed at a  bedroom window and to the entrance,  will instantly tell firemen that that room  should be searched first  "The delay of a few seconds in finding  occupants of a 'building caused by search  of all parts, of the building including  closets, bathrooms and storage areas, rather than fiist searching known occupied  areas,,could mean the difference between  life and death to an occupant," said, a  department spokesman.  1 To help firemen make the right decision the Light in the Dark program has  been developed.  By placing a sticker on the bedroom  window of each normally occupied bedroom, and placing a sticker beside the  door frame of each occupied bedroom  firemen can direct their search, effort-  first to such rooms. Subsequent searches  would, of "courser-include all rooms. '  "In addition to aiding in such timely  rescue decision, the presence of these  stickers within the home will have the  intangible benefit of constantly reminding residents of the danger of fire by their  being exposed 365 days a year to the"  words Fire Rescue. It is hoped that each  resident of the Gibsons Fire Protection  District consider purchasing the sticker,"  said the spokesman.  The stickers are a fund-raising activity  of the district.  The highly reflective stickers are av-  . ailable from any member of the Gibsons  Fire Department for a' minimum donation  of$1 -per. sticker. -, -  VANCOUVER JUNIOR Symphony  Orchestra will perform. in Gibsons  April 28.

L. JoAes   ,  Church  of  Jes^a7 Christ  of  Latter-day  Saints. '   ^ - ,  WE  BELIEVE ^hat" the first principles  and ordinance* the Gospel are: first,  faith in the iibnT: Jesus Christ; second,  repentance; thirds' baptism * by inimersion  for the remission of sins; fourth, laying  on of hands for' the gift of the Holy  Ghost'. ' ' ;  The meaning of faith throughout the  scriptures is: iEttUr confidence in the existence, pwposes1 and words of God. "...  . faith is not to haVe a perfect knowledge  ���of things;-therefore-if-ye have faith ye :  hope for things which are not seen, which  are true." (Alma 32:21)  "But without faith it is impossible to  -please him: for he that cometh to God  must believe that he is, and that he is  a rewarder of them that diligently seek  him." (Hebrews 11:6) /   .  We show our faith in God by keeping  his commandment^ As we develop faith  ' in him, we feel a*'respect for divine law,  ���" a realization of t_��jwor��hiness and a desire to forsake sh||  - "Repent ye Fmerefore, and be converted, that yototosins may be,blotted  out, when the"times of refreshing shall  come from the,;,presence of the Lord."  (Acts 3:19)  Repentence comes when we are sorry  enough to quit our wrongdoing. A wonderful promise is given to those who truly  repent: "Behold, he who has repented  of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I,  the Lord, remember them no more."  '(D.&C. 58:42) .  Baptism by immersion is symbolic of  Christ's burial and resurrection. It is a  covenant with .oiir,. Heavenly Father that  we will keep his oommandments.  "...Except a>,man be 'born of water  and of the Spirit, he cannot enter the  kingdom of God." (John 3:5). Christ himself was baptized to fulfill all righteousness.   ���        ��?;���  After his resurrection, Jesus instructed  his-disciples: "G<?:ye therefore, and teach  all nations, baptizing them in the name  of the Father, and of the Son, and of the.  Holy .Ghost." (Matthew 28:19)  The Holy Ghost is the third members  of the Godheadi'.a personage of spirit,  separate in ideijtjjy from the Father and  the Son. Because' he is a personage of  spirit, the Holy Ghost speaks to our spirit-He teachesPfcuid.es, strengthens: and  comforts. ��"  The gift- of^e ,Holy Ghost, which is  the right to receive his guidance as we  are worthy, is conferred by the laying on  of hands by those who have authority.  Referring to the apostles, we read: "Then  laid they their hands on them, and they  received the Holy Ghost." (Acts 8:17)  According to the scriptures, faith in  God, repentance of sin, baptism by immersion and the laying on of hands for the  gift of the Holy Ghost, are essential for  salvation.

HARRY Olaussen MP has .urged the federal government to provide adequate  garbage disposal services at government  wharves.  He told the standing committee on  fisheries and forestry that boats are not  allowed to dump garbage at sea, so they  leave it on the wharves with the result'  that we find garbage piled up every summer.  Olaussen said he was particularly concerned with the unorganized areas, where  nobody  knows who is responsible   (for  dumping garbage) with the result that.it<i  ends up in a complete mess.  - - - The Coast-Chilcotin member was told-  that many wharves on the west coast do  not have federal wharfingers to supervise  garbage disposal.  He said the government was presently  investigating alternative means of administering those wharves, such as hiring full  ���or part time wharfingers instead of,the  present fees-of-office wharfinger system.  "We are recognizing that garbage collection and the disposal of solid and liquid  wastes are problems in these areas," he  said. "We have not yet decided what our  'policy will be, but are in the process  of doing that."  The. government spokesman said the  government was studying several proposals from west coast residents on means  of collecting garbage from local wharves.  One suggestion involves a garbage  collection vessel, which would visit the  various wharf facilities, he revealed.  "We are examining...the feasibility of  entering into a contract with the people  who have these vessels.  BLOOD donors are invited to attend the  clinic at St. Mary's Hospital, Monday,  April 29, 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.  The clinic is sponsored by the auxiliaries to St. Mary's Hospital and chairman  is Mrs. Charlotte Raines. Additional information is available by phoning 886-  2706.  British Columbians last year donated  more than 100,000 pints of blood through  the Canadian Red Cross. That's over 12,000  gallons of blood.  It sounds like a lot, but divided among  the 30,000 patients who received blood  transfusions in 1973 it comes to only .3%  pints per patient. \  The miracles of modern medicine���  open heart surgery, artificial kidneys,  treatment of leukemia, are all dependent  upon large quantities of blood.  At the same time, researchers in hospital and Red Cross blood banks are con-  - stantly discovering new ways - of using  blood more efficiently. One blood donation can now be used to save the life  of as many as five different persons. None  is wasted.  J. H. TYNER has released a. statement  concerning   negotiations _ to-  provide  Pender Harbour area' with a health centre. And the news is very good indeed;  present  plans  are  to   have  the  centre  built; equipped, and staffed, and open for  business by the end of, October this year.  This is the result of months of effort  on the part of the directors of the Pender Harbour and District Ratepayers' Association, headed by Tyner. Government  representatives   recommended    construction of a more complex building _than  that originally considered-by the direct- -  ors, to provide office space for the provincial health' nurse.and social workers,  visiting specialists, and a dentist, in addi-_  "tion to the space provided in the original tentative plan. This first planning effort envisaged doctor's office and .examining   rooms,   a   laboratory   and   x-ray  rooms, nurses office, reception and waiting room area, and an emergency treatment room with holding beds.  , The good" news about this extra accommodation is that it won't cost area  residents anything. The government has  agreed to pay half'of the cost of land  and building, in addition to all the operating costs. Architects are preparing  sketch plans, and arrangements are be-'  ing.made with the board of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District for preparation  of a referendum to provide funds for-  Pender Harbour's portion of the building  costs. And if that referendum is passed,  the medical clinic will be started very  soon.  At the suggestion of Dennis Cocke,"  minister of health, a society has been  formed to administer the health centre,  called the Pender Harbour and District  Health Centre Society, PHDHCS. Tyner  urged all members of the ratepayers' association to become members of this new  society, which they may do by going to  his office in Madeira Park and paying  ��� the $2 membership fee.  Membership in the ratepayers association can be arranged by paying the- an-'  nual $2 fee���also in Turner's office.  It's a valuable organization, and one  that is taking practical steps to deal with  many-of the problems of our area.  Presently its directors are making efforts, with the help of'Don Lockstead, to  have B.C. Tel include Pender Harbour in  a toll-free area with the rest of the Sunshine Coast.  They're also negotiating for establishment of fishermen's floats at Gerrans  Bay, an increasingly urgent' need now  that escalating values of waterfront property prevent many fishermen establishing themselves on the sea coast.  Harry Olausson, MP, advised that additional float space is forthcoming immediately, and plans are in the making  for further development of these facilities. And the directors are preparing a  presentation to the government urging  the establishment of a standard of assessment which will more equitably distribute the tax burden than the standard pro-  posed_in the.

Presently they're completing arrangements to have a couple of  their- number go to Vancouver on a live-  in basis at one of the city's fireballs. It's  felt that enormous benefits will accrue .  from this first-hand experience of pro- ���  fessionals in action. They've also���everyone of them���been working hard on that  eight-week St. Johns Ambulance first aid  course, under the instruction of Joan  Cunningham. And meanwhile' they've  been undating their maps showing road  and hydrant locations, to be ready for  any emergency.  They're also'dealing with the problem  of raising the approximately $800 needed for the fireworks, display planned for  Halloween 1974.

I  Jane leVierge won the prizefor the  prettiest hat, Iris Griffith for the funniest;  and a visitor from Campbell River, Alice  Griffith not only won the prize for the  most original concoction, but was also the  winner of the Easter hamper. Alice hopes  to retire to Egmont eventually, and this  lucky afternoon must have confirmed her  in the wisdom of her choice. Tinshel Riley,  one of the students from the elementary  school, was asked to draw the winning  ticket for the door prize. Quite by  chance, the one she chose was her own!-  The fishing's been good, especially of  blue, backs; the trees are in bud; the days  are getting warmer; and the local marinas are all busy.

The ladies of the association are planning a dinner dance for May 11 at the  Legion Hall. Please plan, to attend to get  acquainted with our group.  We have decided not to extend the  probationary term of Don Phillips as our  manager. -We are advertising for a manager and an ice maker.  We have received donations in the  past week from B.C. Packers, Terminal  City Iron Works and B.C.A. Industries of  materials for the project.  .pie in 1973 less than $8,000 was paid while  under the- new bill it is expected that  payments will be in order" of $4,000,000..  ��� While it is not possible at this time  to forecast the total demand for sewerage  facilities in the future, the grant formula  in this Bill will result in an increasing  .provincial contribution as new facilities  are constructed.  Bill 88 provides for an annual grant  calculated as 75 percent of the amount by  which the annual debt charges, for sewer  facilities. exceed the product that could  be produced by an annual property tax  levy of three mills. ��� ,  While the three-mill formula is used to  calculate the grant the'municipalities will  not, necessarily levy a mill rate but will  continue to raise all or part of their sewer  requirements by frontage taxes and user  charges.  The debt to be included for the determination of the grant will be, the debt  related to provision of sewage treatment  and disposal facilities and such gathering  -facilities as' are certified by the-inspector���  of' municipalities. The intention is that the  treatment facilities, main trunks and ga-  - thering- works be included in each case  whereas. the internal lateral systems of  a, subdivision or'area would hot be included.  The inspector of municipalities is given  discretion to determine in each individual  case which facilities- are included in the  gathering system for purposes of calculating the grant.

Alderman agreed April 9, to urge the  Union of B.C. Municipalities to oppose  the increases on their behalf.  Earlier in the meeting, a letter from  the telephone company was tabled outlining, the proposed tariff, hikes.  Aid. Kurt Hoehne  said council was  not in a position to- oppose the rate chan-  ' ges since it had no background on BTC.  Tel's financial structure.   ,  Aid. Ted Hume felt: "They're making enough money.'.'  The UBCM is expected to oppose the  increases through the Canadian Transport Commission.  In other council news, aldermen learned that their application for a provincial recreation grant had received tentative approval from Victoria.  Council applied for . approximately  $3,000.on behalf of Elphinstone Secondary  School, which ^intends to build community1 tennis courts.  The school, itself, was not eligible to  apply for the grant, so the village agreed  to -seek the funds.  Under community recreation fund regulations, 45 per cent of the total grant  will be paid when the contract is let, 45  per cent when the project is half-completed and 10 per cent upon completion.  Council referred to the Sea Cavalcade  Committee a request from the Driftwood  Players to hold^ an arts fair in Dougal  Park during Sea Cavalcade.  According to Gordon Hauka; one of  1 the Players: "The arts fair would involve  a   display  of loeal  talents in arts   and  crafts, music, - theatre, etc."  Aldermen agreed to support Sechelt  and District Chamber of Commerce in its  bid to have B.C. Tel establish a universal  emergency number, 911.  "The establishment of a universal  emergency number is a most urgent and  desirable one. We would strongly urge  that you take appropriate action in this  regard," wrote Bob Scales, president of  the Sechelt Chamber.  utmmaaaaaaaaaauauuaaauuaamauauaaaaanamaaMuiiiuiuuavuauamaaauaaaauaaanaaaan  9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.  SATURDAY, APRIL 20th  Best in Live Entertainment  _________  ill WlU ii  a^i-.1--  "JOIN THE FUN"  PENINSULA  HOTEL'  Highway 101 ��� Cover Charge ��� 886-2472j  [������a.if��-����n��ai��_a_��aT��ai��tf^����aa-��r�� taaaaaaaaaaaaaaMmamaaaaaiiaaMaamaaaaaaaaaaaaamaamanaaaaaaaaaat  I  Use Rimes' Adbrieis to Sell Rent Buy, Swap, etc.  "afli  FRANK ROOSEN inspects Dutch-  style-dyke that stands between his  Pender Harbour farm and tidal  waters from Oyster Bay. Before he  built the dyke, most of his low-lying  farmland was flooded each high tide.  When dyke system is completed.  Roosen's vegetable crops will be safe  from salt water.  Reclaied for garden > . .  Peninsula-grown tomatoes  slated for local tables  by Kathleen Yull  PENDER HARBOUR���When one thinks  ' of dikes, one usually thinks of Holland,  where they have been used for centuries  to keep the sea out of the fields. But did  you realize that we have some right here  on the Sechelt Peninsula?  There is a piece of land on Pender  /- Harbour which has been subject to flooding whenever the tide is high, but which  is now being reclaimed from the sea and  put to use as a garden.  There are 22 Vi acres altogether in the  piece of land which Frank Roosen has  bought, and which he calls Roosen-Dal  Farms (Dal is the Dutch equivalent of the  English word dale, and a considerable  part of the total area was regularly in-',  undated by the sea until Frank began  erecting his dikes, All .those years of being  covered by the sea have left some traces  of salt in .the soil: not as much as one  would think though, since Roosen said  that a large port of the flood water is  fresh surface water carried in by the  salt tides, However, the reclaimed acres  will have to be sown with crops which  can stand soil with a considerable salt  content.  Frank Roosen is Dutch, and like many  of his countrymen ho has a vast knowledge of gardening. So" he'will have no  trouble in selecting those orops which  can best flourish in a salino soil. It's 10  years since he left his native land to  come to Canada. And for all that, time; he  has dreamed of someday haying ft pro-'  ' fltablo vegetable farm; a dream which  , appears to be coming true at last,  FRESH VPGETABJUES  The Roosons hope to provide enough  fresh, locally grown vegetables to supply  aU of the Peninsula, if not by this sum-  pier then at least by, hoxt, and probably  will have surplus produce to send to area?  L,w4iko *PowolL~ River r**^^  Naturally, not all of the crops will bo  Brown on tho.abil behind the dikes, In  fact, a very largo part will ho grown under glass in the huge greenhouse which  Frank, his wife, two sons and a daughter  have recently erected, '  Tho greenhouse wns bought, second-  'hand, in Holland, and shipped to Its new  location.

This  was a giant task, First it, was necessary  to clear tho land, and to build a rond in  lo the site chosen for iho ereotlon of tho  iTrewhotjjm, n dbtnnceof about 400 yards,  A road.capable,of,taking.the heavy truck  required to transport tho containerized  building, Next a largo barn wns' built.

While Frank and his sons worked on  this, Mrs. Roosen carefully cleaned, scrap- '  ed and repainted the myriad sections of  the frame. And finally, these were assembled and welded .together and the  thousands of panes of glass installed.  Construction began in 'January, and  was completed on March 23,  TOMATOES  The greenhouse is in 10 sections, nine  of which will be used to grow tomatoes.  Roosen said that our climate here is not  suitable for growing tomatoes. commercially outdoors: they require dry heat, up  to about 90 degrees F. Which should  create no problem, since a few hours after  the last of the glass was installed and the  buijding closed up, the interior temperature had risen, to 120 degrees I To regulate  , this and keep it at the optimum temperature for .the plants, there is an ingenious  device which permits one to open a series  of 12 windows in any one section simply  by operating.a single crank.  The 10th section of the complex will  be used for starting the tomato plants and  other vegetables, Tho seedlings are set out  in-tiny cubes of earth and when tlio time  is ripe, they aro placed in *he outdoor  garden plot or in the tomato houses, Also  in this section, tomato plants are being  , grown for sale to local gardeners. For  7this purpose, three, specially selected,  hardy varieties have boon chosen.  ���These" Will hot be sold cltrectly from  Roosen Del Farms, but will bo handled  by a local merchant, since tho hard-  1 Working Roosons feel thoy cannot cope  with .retail salea of this typo while keeping up wltlb, tho enormous amount of  work involved In t h el r venture, For  months tho entire family has been busy  seven days a week, and there ls.no likelihood of tho pace slowing in tho foresee-  ����'ablo-futuro,��������*"~^  32,000 IaBS,  The flyst plants are only a few inches  >iw��MtwwHiaM��aaa��MMWWaaawaiM��a����<WM  high as yet, but in time it is expected  that a single crop���tomatoes���will yield  between 12 and 32 thousand pounds of  marketable fruit! So by mid-summer, we  on the Peninsula should be enjoying vine-,  ripened beauties from Roosen-Dal, as well  as many other garden-fresh vegetables.

You'll be awarded.  by a very Euro_>ean sight: .dikes holding  the sea back from the fruitful acres of t  land, and an enormous greenhouse complex, of a type familiar around all the  cities of Holland, but much less common  in this country. Good luck to, the Roosens.

Report from Parliament Hill  ��� by Harry Olaussen, MP Coast' Chileotin  A TOTAL of 572 students will be hired  by the department of human resources  this summer under two programs designed to provide students with work experience, contacts and references.-  Priority will be given to "students who  experience difficulty in obtaining jobs in  the private sector, according to Human  Resources minister Norman Levi.  Through this summer employment program, the department hopes to provide  students with an income that will enable  them to continue their education "while  gaining valuable work experience."  Priority in hiring will be giyen to Indian students, ��� married students, mature  students, women, disadvantaged persons,  high school students, and first-time entrants into the labor force, according to  the department.  The students will be employed for a  16 week period commencing May 6.

MY RECENT trip to California to investigate the grape boycott has  brought  some unexpected reaction.  It seems more interest was shown in  criticizing the trip as another government  junket rather than in the plight of the  grapeworkers.  However,' my personal fact-finding  mission was made iii order to evaluate  the conditions there for the benefit of my  caucus and' in order to give a less biased -  report than the one made by a B.C. Conservative member whose trip last year  was financed by the Teamsters' Union.  My trip was made during the latter  part of the Christmas recess and was paid  for out of my own pocket. I didn't explain  that quite olearly in my previous report  as I don't believe that a member should  complain about the expenses he incurs  during his term in office.  However, there comes a time when  the public should be made aware that  members'do spend a considerable sum.  of their own money in carrying out'their .  ".nany   duties.  As a bachelor, I don't encounter the  extra financial obligations as a married'  man with a family experiences. I find  it possible for me to do a number of factfinding trips, itravel extensively in my  constituency and make myself available  at all times on my trips ,to.the constituency without having to face'the obligations of a family man.  I truly admire the married member  who,tries to maintain: normal family relations what.with a 60-70 hour week while  the House is in session and weekends  spent in visiting the constituency or carrying out the many duties that a member  is expected to do in order to be~as"effective as possible where local, national or  international interests are concerned'.  Two members have, already died of  heart, attacks during the last session of  Parliament. It is difficult to say whether  this was brought on by overwork. How-,  ever, I can truly say that most members  in- the House are a dedicated and hardworking lot subjected to the many fru-  ",'" strations and ! pressures ?'.of office. 7."  ,    I' can also truly say that no matter  what the short-comings of our political  system may be, the people of this country  can be assured that they are being well  served by members who - are basically  honest and contribute to our system an  integrity and a sense of responsibility  that is probably the' envy of the democratic world.    . -   ���  These are my-views,- not of my performance, but of the performance of the  other members many of whom will continue to serve their constituents long after I'm gone.

People- often say that roses are  _rhard to growr I guess if~a person is grow-  ing purely, hybrid teas of the latest fash- '  ion, he will find it an expensive way  to grow things as well.  Roses grow from the arctic circle to  the equator, and are loved the world over,  > and have even been used as political symbols between warring kings.  Here are a number of uses that are  not commonly known. .  As a ground cover: use creeping ever-  ' bloom; magic carpet.  On a terrace:  The wichuriana  rose;  , - max graf; coral creeper.  To border a walk, or as a tall hedge:  Rosa rugosa and hybrids, F. J. Grooten-   ,  dorst, flamingo, Sir Thomas Lipton.  A low hedge: China doll, butin, Charlie McCarthy, circus.  , As a divider: rose trees, peace, Queen  Elizabeth, Miss Canada.  In a rock garden: baby roses, Eleanor, -  Yellow doll, beauty, secret.  For the cottage: shrub roses flamingo,  Harrison's yellow, nearly wild, Freuh-  lings gold.   ,  Most of the plants I am .talking about  are not available at the run of the mill,  supermarket type of nursery, he could  get them for you, but he has to stock the  ones he can sell easily.1 But I hope that1  you are not buying and planting roses  now, are you? Wait until fall, you'll be  happier.  Ask your nursery man'about some of  the old roses. If you really want fragrance  in a rose, ask to see some hybrid perpe-  tuals, damask or bourbon roses. The modern H.T. doesn't get a smell in.  Hope this gets printed with a pun  like that.

It should stop immediately and the  the required $290,000.  Actually, the general contractor's bid  came in at $268,000 which left only  $22,000 to, finish the interior and put in  icemaking equipment. Trouble was obvi  village council, the recreation associa- , ously poking its nose over the horizon.  tion, members of the provincial government and opposing elements to the arena  and the public should sit down and discuss the problem and determine a solution.  As it, is, the provincial government  delayed its one third grant, or about  $160,000, and consequently there is no  money to pay bills which will be coming  due soon, according to Aid. Norm Watson. - -  With the grant delay and now the  firing of arena manager Don Phillips,  many questions arise about the arena.  Question: Why "was there no lease  agreement signed between the village and  the association? In a special council  meeting in February, the village gave  instructions for its solicitor, Bruce Emerson, to draw up such particulars. After  last w.eek's publicity and delay of grant,  a lease will be signed at tonight's council meeting..  Aid. Norm" Watson.told"The Times  last week that the project will cost somewhere in the vicinity 6l $450,000 to  $500,000���he's not even sure what the  cost is going to be.        v  Right through this whole proceeding  village councilmen insisted that there  would be no, direct cost to the village  of Sechelt.    .-  Question: Why then did they give  three readings to a bylaw to borrow-  $200,000? Council's answer is, of course,  that this is necessary irf order to be eligible for the provincial grant which now  appears won't be forthcoming. The bylaw is pending in .Victoria.  Question:  Why  did Hall say that  operating costs of the arena won't exceed  ' $31,000 annually?  He said in February an icemaker's  salary would be about $1,000 per month  ($12,000 annually); other operating costs  9-_''*     -,fc   i^'V"  -���f-'i���,,"  ���;___���__!__!_*  ,.��j>.-^-��-^k?^5_;^45;  ,,*x,,-:'s*_v-.,,*''��>����rv'-,  ���  i .-"i  \WEtvr+.��R8y '74  From the pulpit  ���   ���by Pastor Gerry Footer,  _ Gibsons Pentecostal Church  A FAD .called , streaking - has recently  started. One hopes it won't last long  but ,it seems to be yet' another sign ot  the. sick' shape* in. which we find' the  human race.  Some streakers were interviewed a few  days after' they - appeared at a hockey  game. They thought it was a big joke, noting how the people cheered and yelled,  and one of them said:' 'I never received  such applause.'. This is an example, of  yrhsit the Bible calls 'glorying in 'tJxeir  shame.'' They -t^ake pride in those'very  things which are really a shame and disgrace, and justify their vices,- nr  Streaking is not the only thing which  , is- in this category. ^Everything' from  drunken parties to illicit sex to dirty  jokes are a source of boasting.'1 Instead  of hiding our .faces -in shame 'atf such  things we think we are smart, as if we  have accomplished something to be proud  of. ��� ,    -';  But a day is coming when you, will  stand all alone before your God.and be  confronted, with all your shameful acts.  It will be" a time when we have to give  an account of every, idle word and- deed.  But God in His great mercy has provided  you with an opportunity to repent of your  sins. Jesus died because of your shameful acts; remember'this when you begin  ^to glory in things you should be ashamed  of. And because He paid for .your redemption you can be acquitted' and* forgiven by turning in repentance 'and faith  to Christ.  such as electricity, water,  ,heat, tele-  At that same meeting, Hall, prime    phone, office stationery and equipment  gUIUNMUIiniMI  i  mover, behind the arena concept, was  asked by Aid. Ernie Booth if the village  would be- financially' responsible. Hall  replied that the association will be a  tenant of the village "and there will be  no obligation on the part of, the village.  "If we operate in the red, you have  the right to cancel our lease and you  can veto our budget."  Some questions are answered in the  letter-to the editor by Gordon Dixon,  president of the association.  A patch of ice 85 feet by 50 feet  will be available at all times "for small  fry skaters,"  said Dixon.  "That's not enough space to teach  anything," Don Phillips told The Times.  The arena will be open. Friday and  Saturday nights for skating and Saturday  and Sunday will be available for minor  hockey and figure skating, and adult  hockey will be carried on. late iFriday  and Saturday nights. No practice times  allowed for, it seems.   ���  Such a program is fine if the facility  is constructed only through debentures  and then it becomes a private club similar  and similar items were not ,even mentioned. In fact, at the time of the February meeting, B.C. Hydro estimate to  service the arena'hadn't been received.  The- arena was to operate seven days  a week-(according to the schedule laid  out) so one person couldn't handle all  that. It's obvious that an assistant ice-  maker would have to be hired (at say,  $750 month or $9,000 a year).. The ice-  maker's time and attention are required  with lthe machinery so it appears that  an office clerk would have to be hired  ($500 month,  $6,000    annually). The  clerk won't work seven days  a week  either so an assistant or part-time help  will be needed at $400 month $4,800  yearly which is minimum). That brings  total wages so far to $31,800 already  more than the projected $31,000 annual  operating costs estimated in February.  Red ink is appearing.  . The association in fact, hired a general manager'at $900 a month rising to  $1,100 when the arena was finished.  That brings his salary to $13,200 or  total $45,000 wages; if the other people are-hired, .to operate the .arena on  Letters to the Editor are the opinions of rea ders, and not necessarily those of The limes.

' was addressed Mrs. Dorothy Greene  of, Halfmoon Bay. It was in reply to one  stie had addlressed to Prime Minister  Trudeau about the use of sewage sludge.  Mrs. Green's letter.appeared in The Times'  ���and she provided a copy of Agriculture  Minister Eugene Whelan's reply.  Your letter of Feb. 19, 1974 to Mr.  Trudeau regarding the use of sewage  sludge as a fertilizer material, has been  referred to me for reply.  I may point out that sewage sludge  is presently being used in<ireas of Canada  as a source of fertilizer. Several municipalities have treatment plants that turn  raw sewage into a useful product. With  the present emphasis' alleviating the pollutant load in the environment, especial-  purpose of enabling them to participate  fully and enjoy the recreational facilities  provided during the normal hours when"  the said facilities, are operating or during  such other period or periods as may be  agreed upon between the Lessor and the  Lessee. ���  Clause 4 (k) (2) That the charge for  using the said facilities to those members  of the public who are not members of  the Sunshine Coast Recreation Association'  shall be either a daily or hourly charge  agreed upon between the Lessor and the  Lessee and based on comparable charges  for similar premises situate in the Greater-Vancouver area.  ' The assocaition has provided the village with annual budget control to guarantee successful financial operation and,  further, gives the village rights to terminate the lease should the association operate "in deficit.

But the association applied for  a grant from the Community Recreational Facilities Fund which is intended  to construct non-profit, public-use recreational facilities.,  The stated purpose of the association  is to operate the arena at a profit. Henry  Hall said, again at that February meeting, when urging council to approve the  arena construction: "And if we can't  make a profit, we're not very good businessmen."  The third clarification sought by Victoria in holding up the grant are the winter works proposals. Such a program  provides 100 per cent labor forgiveness  if work is done before May 31. After  that deadline, the rate drops to 50 per  cent.  The association executive first said  that only'a $290,000 facility would be  constructed and it would be paid as  follows: $50,000 from debentures;  7$ 100,000 provincial recreation grant;  $75,000 winter works labor forgiveness.  The association felt that, there would be  sizeable contributors from various organizations few of which have been  realized. So it appears that the total  raised would be $225,000, far short of  help? Grounds maintenance staff? Coffee shop attendants?  These are just a few of the question-  that can be raised. We're certain that  taxpayers can think up some more.  Now for the sixty-four dollar question.  What happens to the arena if the  government refuses to give the grant  until there is complete assurance that  it will be non-profit and haye full public  access? Will the village ot Sechelt be  stuck with a gigantic cold-storage locker?  If the arena is to have complete public access why should debenture holders  not turn in their bonds for a complete  refund? All that $250 would entitle them  to would be bar privileges and not too  many families are concerned about that.  Who then will pay for operating the  arena if the association goes into a  deficit? The taxpayers of the village of  Sechelt because it's pretty .certain the  regional district will not bail Sechelt  out, They have stated their opposition  to holding a referendum for recreational  facilities in Roberts Creek. 7  A public meeting with all parties concerned , should be called > immediately  and,,some answers demanded.

The  levels of these substances vary with the  source of supply and the method of treatment. My department is presently looking at the beneficial effects, along with  the potential problems, in the proper and  efficient use. of the sewage sludges. Regulations on the usage and handling of these  materials are presently under, study.  There is the potential hazard of pathogenic organisms being present in the  treated sludge. Therefore it is not desir- .  able or advisable to use it on any crop  that can' be eaten raw���unless applied  well ahead of planting time, in order to  lead to the destruction of these organisms.  It has been found that heavy metals are  present in sludges in varying amounts.  Some of these levels could be considered ^oxic to plant growth. There are  areas in Canada where the disposal onto'  agricultural land of sewage effluents, is  presently being carried out and being  studied. There are some problems of  toxlcity to plants along with accumulations of undesirable elements in the plants  that can end up in food products.  I will certainly agree, with you that  we ore in a time of world fertilizer, shortage, and we mugt make use of every resource available to us in order to increase  crop and therefore, food production.

Q. Wills the public have full access to  the facility?  A. Yes.  Q. Were construction tenders called  pulfticly? \  Yes. All tenderers competed by public invitation.  There is no doubt that Victoria is  keeping vigil on the partnership as it  is the first such venture between a government body and private citizens. However, it is similar to NDP policy in being  .partners with private enterprise.  Every facility of its kind has its birth  pangs and difficulties and this venture is  no different in that respect.

"They will just walk down the  road."  Aid. Bill Laing said that a sidewalk  on the high school side would encourage  students to use the crosswalk leading  down to.School Road.  Hume attributed to "careless driving"  several recent, incidents in which vehicles  left the highway and slid into the ditch  fronting the school.  He did not feel the ditch could be  blamed for the accidents.  "If we filled in the'ditch, they wouldn't drive on the sidewalk," he noted.  Bloke C.
