The final settlement gained from the  district's insurance companies for replace-  ment'of the school was insufficient to pay  for the proposed new building.  ' So' the board applied" to the department of education,for emergency funds  to make -up' the difference.  In a letter- received recently by the  board, the department authorized preparation of working drawings of the proposed school.  These plans have now been submitted to Victoria for approval. If approved,  tenders will be called immediately.  Although the department did not di  rectly; commit itself, to providing the, requested emergency funds, the* letter, indicated that, if tenders were realistic, the  "funds would be approved.  ' Board chairman Agnes Labonte was  confident that the plans will be approved  soon. "Then we will proceed as quickly  as possible with the* tenders?'  Latest cost projection for replacement  of the school is $1,721,-00. And this figure  is expected to increase'' as material' and  labor costs rise.  The -district's . insurance settlement  .amounted to $1,151,386, leaving almost  $600,000 outstanding.    _**  Mrs. Labonte said that if the department agreed to emergency funding, a  portion of it would likely be borrowed  by the district and the remainder financed  by the government.

Norm Watson told Sechelt village  council about the ,turn of events at last  Wednesday's meeting. Council was concerned about-the status of its zoning bylaw which was initiated by Cuylits and  was.to be completed by Hoemberg.  Watson said that council will continue  with its zoning bylaw. "We can amend' it  if need oe. The regional district bylaw has  been amended 23 times' and it's only  two years old."  "What about the planner?" asked Aid.  Dennis  Shuttleworth.  "We agree in general About the zoning  bylaw," Watson replied.  -Aid. Ted Osborne noted that Hoemberg's ideas" differed from Cuylits'.  "I have differences with Cuylits," said  " Watson. "This is only a dickering plan."  Councilmen spent some time discussing the merits of planners and the philosophy of hiring planners.

Like its two 100-page forerunners, the  ' new edition will be 9x12,, fully illustrated  in color and finished in hard and soft  covers.

PUC, said Don Pye', secretary.  Pye/ said residents should point out  that SMT serves 200 residents on Redrooffs/whereas the alternate Highway 101  route''services only two families,  p "Ii is noted that a large number of  the residents on Redrooffs are pensioners  and Jin many cases depend entirely on  the bus and to remove the service would  ' cause considerable hardship," he said.  , .'It is also noted that when the original-  decision was made to change the route  from Highway 101 to Redrooffs a fare  increase was granted."  (' Pye urged that residents strongly protest re-routing and to remind SMT that  it is obligated by the terms of its franchise  , to supply reasonable service to the resid-  (bnts.  ' Pye also noted that the company lias  ,on several occasions re-routed the bus'  , over Highway 101 thereby bypassing Red-  1 rooffs.  Residents should address their corn-  students.  . "But this is a developing area it's critical that we lack adequate planning," replied Shuttleworth.  - ,  "Planning is a critical science," Watson said. _  "It's an art, please," Shuttleworth, an  engineer answered.  Watson stated that established planners, start, at about $18,000 per year. "I'm  not sure a 50-year old planner is as  good ias a' good student." He noted hew  theories evolved in planning.  "_f the board is going to hire a student  and it turns out as well as the experiment with Cuylits, that's good.'"  West told The Times that he will contact Professor' Rees to see if .one. of the  graduate students who helped write the ���  report on the Sunshine Coast is available.  "Some of them are either finished their  studies or are close to their doctorate"  said West.  West said that "Hoemberg was released  by an unanimous vote of the board. His  duties are completed this week and he  was given a month's Severance pay.  In other service committee business,  Eric Willmott, secretary-treasurer, was  given a six-month extension of his probationary period. His probationary period of six months would have been up  March 31.- ,.    ,  The board felt that w'illmott has not  been given a fair chance to act completely in his duties due to the lack of an  assistant and other problems.

Review.  And he has a point. It may cost  the country money initially to develop  the islands t>ut the investment would  be returned manyfold by Canadians looking for a little sun and fun during the  cold winter months.  As it. is .now, Canadians    by the  Caicos part of Canada, actually the proposition is to make it a part of Nova  Scotia, would tend to keep this money  in Ithe Canadian economy. Wintering  Canadians could then fly to the part  of Canada that is in the Caribbean thereby keeping Canadian funds in Canada./  We wouldn't, of course, recoup all  our foreign expenditures, but it could  go a long way to keeping a good portion  of it, r       -  To make up the difference for western Canadians who normally fly to  Hawaii, California and western Mexico,  thousands, are, flying' to Hawaii, Cali- perhaps Air Canada could arrange toi  fornia, Mexico, Jamaica, Bahamas and make , up.- the difference in the cost  other sun spots during the winter.

Our own  foreign landspTo make the Turks and tropical paradise.  AT THIS time of year The Times issues  a warning to householders on the  Sunshine Coast to exercise caution when  door-to-door magazine crews make their  annual sales pitches in this community.  Usually our warnings are enough to  alert residents of the dangers of being  bilked by these high-pressure salesmen.  But there are always some good-natured  people who fall, prey to the glib-talking  magazine sellers. Quite often the caller  asks potential customers to sign a "vote"  to put him through college or some equally obscure purpose, only to find they  have' ordered many years of magazine  subscriptions.  '".  Magazines lare. safely ordered directly  from the publisher; buy a copy of the  magazine you want at a news-stand and  you will find the rates usually listed inside the magazine. In this way, you will  be able to order only the magazines you  want, and for "the length of time you  want. There are seldom, if ever, any true  "bargains" obtained from door-to-door  magazine sales crews.  But in case.you happen to be talked  into signing a contract, we would like you  to heed this warning from one of our  readers who had "second thoughts" after she spent some $20 for magazines.  She assumed that she could cancel her  order when she notified the company  within three days that she did not wish  to receive the magazines. Unfortunately,  the magazine publishing company was  prepared with a stock reply that turned  provincial law to its own advantage:  So this particular magazine customer-  has no other recourse but to take her  losses begrudgingly, keep a wary eye  out for door-to-door salesmen lacking  acceptance credentials, and mantain a ,  closed and silent door to all of them in '  the future.  NO ONE denies the need for greater conservation of our natural resources,  but does it mean hoarding against a  possible future far-removed emergency,  and in the process ignoring the present  drastic needs at large? The term conservation is frequently used in a generalized and often vague  sense, 'with no  rived not only of a future means of  livelihood, but of such^ actual necessities as electric power, gas and oil, which  contribute so much to our standard of  living. Such folk demonstrate a complete lack.of faith in mankind's almost  unlimited ability to mould, change and  adjust to p unfavorable i conditions of both  figures or data supplied regarding the < climate and environment. It is these qual-  actual extent of our natural resources or  their rate of depletion.  All of us approve of the preservation of this country's natural beauties  of field, forest and stream���of its bird  and animal life but no arbitrary decision to restrict the development of northern Canada's almost unlimited electric  power resources^ or the carrying of oil by  pipeline across northern Canada, should  be made without more complete facts and  figures.  Our future -world is pictured by ex  treme conservationists as a land reduced  to barren ugliness, with Canadians dep-  ities of adaptation and innovation which  have raised homo sapiens above the  animal world,   i  "Ten years from now," authorities  tell us, "nuclear energy should be generating about one-third of our electric  power, and by the year 2,000 over half  of. it."  Let's not be pessimistic. Let us remember that man is greater than his  environment and, given thought, can  control and change it.  _ Why don't they?

If the government did*  not pay ithe high prices for land that you  complain of, you would then call them  gougers > of the poor landowner.  It seems to me the sin, as you see it,  is the getting caught driving 40 mph in a  30 zone. I have no sympathy with your  (poor guy) going 40 in a 30 zone, and  that applies to me too. It is only fair if  the law is broken the person should pay,  or he or she may pay with their life, or  yours or mine one day.  Would you please make closer enquiry  as to where our Autoplan money is being  invested? You may find not in Connecticut but in British Columbia. Our British.  Columbia, thank goodness. We can now  keep our money in Canada a wholly-  owned Canadian company.

' Later in the meeting, after the financial' statement had been read, the seniors authorized a donation of $100 to the  transportation committee.

'  These dealt with transportation for the N  elderly, under certain circumstances of  age and .infirmity for visits to clinics,  doctors and hospitals at nominal costs;  rest homes in rural areas so that people  not needing the sophisticated care of full  medical attention could still receive adequate attention. The third dealt with  low-cost housing. The fourth with boarding house facilities in rural areas. These  resolutions received the approval of the  gathering.

There would also be as  many different ways of growing them,  and as many different varieties. Which  is a good healthy sign, but there are a  few basic things that are needed for consistent good crops.  First, buy good plants from an organic  grower, or seedsman. You will pay a little  more per plant but get more fruit It is  easier to care for a few plants than a  lot. Six plants should be enough for you  and those friends who cpme out from the  city. You may, of course, prefer to grow  your own from seed, which adds to the  interest, And, if you have kids very educational (of course you could insist that you  are paying taxes to educate them) but  kids delight in growing things and can't  wait for the seed to sprout. But the same  rule applies, buy good seed from a seedsman. Sure you can buy them from a  hardware store or super market if you  want, but don't expect the best. They  aren't in the growing business, they  merchandise,  Second, prepare the ground. This ls  my way, as soon as the ground can be  worked I dig a hole the size of a flail and  fill It with leaves that I collected in fall,  and pour a quart of my special 'tea' over  it and heap the soil over the lot and  r leave it until I'm ready to plant. Tea  recipe: throw a couple of spades of manure Jn a barrel or garbage pail and fill  with, water, after a while it's dcllelous  and: can be used at various strengths,  When the danger of frost has left, choose  a day, that Is not too hot or windy, even  overcast, Mix the loaves and soil together  and leave four Inches in the bottom,  Plant deep so that the top two sots of '  loaves only are showing, the roots will  form all along tho stem and give you a  better root system, water generously and  mulch around a few inches deep,  If, you are going to stake your tomatoes  plant thom at the same time, Space your  plants according to tastq. I plant mlno  TtvyO**n<Jbe8*^0nrt*wlth*a-a^in?Wt.rn  and plant marigold and basil with thom.  My favorite varieties are Burpces Delicious, Trlp-lTcrop a climber from Dominion Seed Houso and a toss up between  Glamour and Hocket, I llko Trlp-1-crop  becauso aver the years It has been good to  mo and was the ono I used whon I first  wont organic wo lived in a small 30x100  lot so I planted .them along the fence  and one on the TV antenna,  The ones along the fence did well  but tlio ono on the TV" tower with a foot  , if hay around Us roots grew to 14 feet  tall with moro tomatoes than wo could  oven give away, Our neighbor was ,n  mnrltimcr and wo gave hor lots, Sh'o  rewarded us with fresh baked rolls, nnd in  tho fnll when tho cold started to roll In,  Wo harvested a bushel banket ot green  -Mpmnloes an *wcllrThnt*year- my wife  learned how to make chow-chow,  There's n good moral In that I guess;  "If you want to bo a good neighbor, plant  an grow argartlo tomatoes,'" U you  want1 to grow a few extra plants at no  costrrcmove tho suckers "* from tho bottom of the stalk,and plant them m you  did-lho plants In a short while, they  will root and give you an additional later  crop, Whatever you do, mulch about n  foot, it conserves moisture, prevents  wcodn, olimlnotos tho need for watering.

Aldermen decided, instead to extend  the existing 'no parking' zone on the  wharf to provide a 60 foot strip clear of  cars in front of the store.  Fearing that other businesses in the  heavily congested lower area might apply  for loading zones if the Nygren request  was approved, council opted for the extended 'no parking' zone at its March  19 meeting.

Squaringly yours  ��� p  ���by Maurice Hemstreet  HOWDY, square dancers, and a very  pleasant day to you all. How are your  bad colds, aching muscles, headaches, and  so on? Well, one sure.cure for* all of this  is to join your closest/square dance club.  It is quite possible that this type of exercise would help a lot.  Well, the next question is where to  start. I see that someone is running down  my favorite TV show/,othe Beachcombers.  Well, when I first came up to the Sunshine Coast, I beachcombed for logs from  Point Atkinson to Halfmoon Bay and it  is very interesting to see this crew working the same areas that I did only bringing a great amount of wonderful scenery  of our local coast to those who can't get  out and see it for real. Besides, they have  brought quite a large amount of dollars  and cents to the area, opportunity for  local people to participate in their shows,  a little fun or laughter never hurt anyone.  Besides, one can always switch to another  channel.  A couple of. weeks back on a Saturday night, there was a great clatter in my  yard and, I rose to see what was the  matter, and to my surprise two car loads  of people from the Welcome Beach community had come to join us in one of our  square dance work shops. There was Janet  Allen, Mrs. MacCrady, Alice Young, Ted  and Frances Cooke. Well, to make a long  story short they sure showed us that you  don't have to be on the young side to  enjoy a good square dance. They don't  have a name for their group yet so I will  just call them the Devil Stompers for <  now. When they,left we were invited to  attend their St. Patrick's variety night  at the Welcome Beach Hall March 16.  Well w<> did, and had a great time, so on  behalf of the square dancers that came  who were, Tom and Gladys Parish, Gwen  Hicks, Art Holden, Marv and Peg Volen,  Cathy Berry and myself, we would like  to thank you very much for a great  evening of fun and talent, just keep up  the good work.        >  I also met an old���wups, let's see. I  met a long-time friend'Whom I had not  seen for a long time. This lady belonged  to the Sechelt Promenaders and was none  other than Mary Tlnkley. It sure is nice  to meet up wlttf past friends and mako  new ones. Only In square dancing, this  ' can be done, The Country Stars thank you  one and all for a gteat evening.  Their carpet bowling team are tho  proud holders of itho Bushfield) Trophy  and of course It will be residing at tho  Welcomo Boach Hall, till tho team is  challenged again. I think It's going to bo  ,h?r?���,a J0^ time, those pcoplo Vvo, a  , lot of get up and go. Well, my get up nnd  go, got up nnd left, so, bye���now.

Ph, 085-2053  SO loot cedar crait . . .  on res@F��e,  recalls early aa.YS ot canoe races  By DICK PROCTOR  SECHELT���-Dave PauL oldest man living on the Sechelt Indian Reserve,  turned 80 on Sunday, St. Patrick's day,  and he fondly remembered the days when  he was one of the great canoe carvers.  Paul's 50-foot war canoe, St. Michael,  which he and others carved in 1934, made  a name for the Sechelt hand when the  canoe and its 11-man crew, including  Paul, took the measure of a band of Indians in Nanaimo harbor. , '-     <-   ��� -  "We went to Nanaimo for the big race >  on the 24th of May," said Paul, "but we  started ���training for the race in February.  Training is important."  The trim carver, whose physique belies  his   80   years,  recalled  with  a  twinkle  that' would do credit to a true son .of-  the old sod, the day the Sechelt crew  - triumphed.  "The Nanaimo crew were the champions," he said, "but we trained many hours  and we-knew we had a good canoe.  - "We took the, St. Michael' over to  '^Nariaimo jpnAa fishing .boat. It was a  choppy day with lots of whitecaps."  ��  The water was still churning in Nanaimo harbor when the Sechelt eleven put  the boat in the water facing several top-  rated Vancouver Island crews' and the  race was on.  "Right away we took the lead and  even though the wind was blowing and  the water was rough, we stayed' in front,  We had practiced making turns so that  we could turn in 25 to 30 seconds.  ."We started off and made the turn  ���at  Newcastle  Island   and  by the time  we hit the finish line, we were way out  in front."

Dave and some companions  eoveted  a  tall  cedar up   on  Chapman  ' Creek but it belonged to "a Frenchman  and he wouldn't let 11s have it."  The men chopped it down anyway and  hauled it to the reserve.  "How did'you cart it "down?" Dave'  was asked.  "By manpower. We dragged and pulled it from- the creek and brought it  right down to the reserve.  ' "And when we got it here we carved  it with axes and little knives. We didn't  - use power saws like they do today," Dave  said disdainfully, when he thought about  modern methods of canoe carving.  .'-'There is a real art to carving a canoe. Do you know anything about cedar?  .You have to cut the right limbs off a  tree. I try1 to tell that to these young  fellows and they just laugh .at.me. They  1 cut the wrong .limbs and-the canoe is too,  heavy \o carry���it takes about 20 men to  ��� move it around. It won't move as fast or  turn as quickly," he said.  Dave said they used to paddle for two  or three hours. "We'd do a mile in six  ��� minutes."  Paddles for the racing canoes are made  of yellow cedar~and each must be carved  to suit a particular man's  grip.  "Fir is no good because it's too heavy, a man can't hold it" for two or three  hours while he's racing, Spruce breaks  easily when it becomes seasoned. Yellow  cedar has a spring to it and bends in the  water," and he demonstrated what he  meapt by bringing down some old paddles  on the wall and they still had the spring  to ithem.  Dave also femembers the days when  Sechelt Indians had a baseball team in the  !20s. "I played third base," he said pointing to a picture of the team. "We were  good." ,  Dave's wife died some years ago and  so have his three children. But he s,till  has grandchildren-���three boys and three  girls, and seven great grandchildren.  Dave went to the hospital for the first  time in his life last year.  Ha was born March 17; 1804, on the  reserve, but he doesn't know'just where.  He how Uvea in the trim, little cottage'  ho build in 1040, His hoyse is,just behind  the church. Formerly there wag a hall  on the site but it burned to tho ground.  As a carpenter, Dave: built many of  the houses on the reserve. ���  He remembers the reserve around the  turn of ���'���" the century when," there wore  trees dotting tho landscape, "but there  wore ,no (roads."  He said the missionaries from Mission  City came on specific religiouf) feasts.  Dave recalls tho first church which  tho Indiana built with their own labor  from funds thoy raised themselves, He  recalls vividly tl.9 construction of tho  second, singlo-splrcd church, "Whon tho  whole tribe,' women included, worked to  build it. A scow with, building materials  was on the beach."  Dave talked' fondly of the Indian  musicians and told of fiOw good they were  and were in demand .tQ,play and he pointed to a picture of tHe, uniformed group  gathered on the steps of the church.  It was a happy 80th birthday for Dave  Paul, as he recalled>fcfais ��� youth on the  reserve.

Members of the community may be  aware, and all parents of band students  certainly are, that the present system of  making large monthly rental payments  is not the ideal solution;1 a sub-committee  was formed .to examine various purchase  plans. At their meeting last week, an  alternative proposal > was presented and  favorably received by all members, who  decided to proceed by 'getting this offer  in writing and negotiating the purchase  of band instruments.  The present  system    is  a millstone  around the neck of parents and school  ��� authorities, If tho schoo} owned the instruments, the band program could grow for  two main reasons: a nominal charge* for  tjie use of their instruments would make  the program,available to more students;  also new Instruments 'could bo, added to  build up a first-class, full-scale band,  p ; The adoption of this plan hinges on  . making a large down payment, for which  the band commlttdo will be making an  ' appeal.

COLLECTION of camping fees at three  local provincial parks will start April  1, a month earlier than last year,- it has  been announced by the department of  recreation and conservation.  The'$2 per night camping fee will apply ,to Porpoise Bay, Roberts Creek' and  Saltery_ Bay parks.  Collection will cease Sept. 9, the same  date as in previous years.  According to the department of recreation and conservation: "The advancing  of .the collection starting date will enable the parks branch to exercise better  control of campgrounds in the province,  especially those on the lower mainland  and Vancouver Island.  "Lack of gate-house registration and  adequate staffing in April has caused  overcrowding in some campgrounds^ and  over-taxing of facilities."  There is a 14-day maximum occupancy  limit in all provincial campgrounds.  :iWMW<mm^-i&-^maX9k!MlAX*&Ar.TiKg*!?

GIBSONS���A" local resident has threatened to'take legal action against the  municipality unless a storm drain running  through an> easement on'his property is  culverted at village expense.  S. K. Metcalfe of Sargent Road claimed  at council's March 19 meeting that heavy  water flow along the ditch had eroded  its banks. Now, the drain exceeded the  10-foot easement width, he said.  "This erosion has deepened the stream  bed in places to a depth of at least five  feet and is causing major sluffing of the  banks.  "The sluffing on my property, outside  of the easement, has reached the driveway wall and house foundation."  He said that remedial action must be  taken soon "in order that extensive costs  will not be encountered by the village  for repairs to my home."  Metcalfe insisted "that this stream  must be contained now and before any  unnecessary  structural  damage   occurs." -  He said he was prepared to take legal  action, if' necessary,, to force the jyillage s  to culvert the drain.  Municipal clerk Jack Copland noted  that Metcalfe  had been offered two',  lengths of half-shell culvert by the village  at no charge.  Metcalfe said that he was unwilling to  bear the cost of installation.  Aid. Ted Hume said council would not  be "intimidated" by threats of" legal  action. ^  , Mayor Larry Labonte said the village  solicitor had advised that council was not  responsible for installation of a culvert.  The public works chairman and works  superintendent were instructed to inspect  Metcalfe's property and report back.  "Would you like to see a model home?"  "Glad to.

There he was,_ lying in the icy slush  in the gutters near Maple Leaf Gardens  in Toronto, one le~g almost sliced off and  the other shattered, and he was telling  them how to do their job.  That finished Whipper Bill Watson's  wrestling career right there: it went down  the sewers with all that blood. "It7was"  he said simply, "the turning point of  my  life."  "For twenty-five years I've been  speaking up for crippled children, and.  in a flash of an instant I found out I did  not have the slightest idea of what it  is really like to be disabled. Now I know."  Local Lions clubs serving the Sunshine  Coast are sponsoring the Easter Seal  campaign. They are Gibsons Lions Club,  Pender Harbour Lions Club and Sunshine  Coast (Sechelt) Lions Club.  Easter Seal chairman of the three  clubs urge residents to send in their donations.  Crippled or, retarded children living  on the Sunshine Coast will benefit from  funds raised fromt sale, of the seals to  local residents,- -said^.ihe^spokesman<J_i^���  ,.'.< The Whip spoke > to a gathering of  service clubs in Victoria, and he'd repeat  it on radio shows and tv shows and again  to anyone who asked, on his cross country  tour to promote the 1974 Easter seal  appeal.  This is the fighter Easter Seal societies  "across the country are asking the public  to  back this  man,   and  he  said,   "the  young people who have to fight every  day of their lives to do what comes so  naturally to those of us who are able-  bodied." He included himself in the able-  bodied group although he has to walk  with a cane now, and obviously suffers  some pain.  In Vancouver he taped a radio show  with his old and equally renowned friend,  Mart Kenney. He told a story and got  madder," his enormous arms thrusting out  into the air driving the point home. He  talked about a cab driver in Kamloops  who had refused to help a young wheelchair-bound boy out of the chair and  into the taxi. Bill' had just heard the  story that afternoon.  "There's no other word for it," the  Whip said. "It's just utter discrimination. Every day these kids are looking up  stairs, at public washroom facilities, and  even at telephone booths and water fountains they can't use. Remove these obstacles and you remove most of a child's  handicap. What's it like to be normal?  To be able to move around, to go to a  movie, to be able to work. Let's open  the doors for them!"  Bill then took a deep breath and cross-  / ed his- hands over, the top of his cane-  studying what he said, thinking he probably left something out.  ' Then he explained that this is one of  the reasons he's been speaking up for  the disabled these past 25 years, and that  discrimination against the handicapped is  the biggest reason for continuing on now,  though disabled himsellf.  That's the way it was right up until  he departed from Vancouver to Edmonton where he was going to open the National Easter Seal Appeal. His last words  were to the people who work for the'  B.C. Lions Society for Crippled Children  who' were seeing him off J He just said  "Take care of the kids" and then walked  out of sight.  ANOTHER LOAD of fill is dumped  at the Sechelt arena site.

It's expected this will increase attendance at the already popular  weekly event.  Here we are in the middle of spring  break week. For the youngsters, it means  unusual freedom to enjoy the spring  weather; for the mothers, unusual extension of the hours during which they must  consider those free spirits��� what are  they up to now? And for the teachers,  it's a heaven-sent opportunity to restore their souls to tranquility.  But for about 40 grade 6 and 7 students, and for the three parent volunteers who are accompanying them, with  Brent Rees, the only teacher .brave enough to get involved in such*an adventure, it's a vejy special spring break this  year. They're now midway on a ten-day  jaunt through the province, where they'll  be seeing mfighty rivers andawesomel  mountain ranges and enjoying the unaccustomed exeperiences. They left last  Saturday, and I hope they're enjoying  every minute of their trip.  Brent Rees, incidentally, is moving  shortly into the house he recently purchased on Lagoon Road. Handy location  for an elementary school teacher.   ,  VARIETY  CONCERT  The Pender Harbour Community  Band is sponsoring a spring variety concert to be held at the Secondary School  onn May 4. It will feature both local  and imported talent, and promises to be  great entertainment. Details of the program are not yet worked out, but I'll  keep you informed. >  As many of you will know, Frank  Postlethwaite, leader of the band, suffered a leg injury recently, and has been  unabel to conduct reheasraLs. The members of the band are very grateful to  Florence Prescesky for stepping into the  breach and ably carrying on during his  absence.  Marj. Rankin reports that Branch 80,  Senior Citizens' Club met on March 18,  with Mrs.  Olson  presiding.

Anyone interested in either of these activities la invited to get in touch with Mrs.  William Brown at 883-9928, to learn,what  times they are available.

POWER SQUADRON  It's not only the elementary and secondary school students and staff who  are celebrating ah oliday from their studies this week. Harold Clay and his power squadrons class have wound up their  course. Don Haddon came up from Sechelt to sueprvise the writing of the "final  examination a week ago, and now we're  waiting to hear the results. It's a challenging program of studies, and provides  a lot of useful information for those who  plan to "go down to the sea in ships."  And Harold managed to get quite a lot  of it into our heads in the five or six  months he's been instructing us.  A feature of the program was to have  been a trip aboard the Earls Cove ferry,  when the members of the class would be  permitted in the-wheel house to see the  practical application of the navigational  skills they've been acquiring. However,  'it has been impossible to arrange this  to date, although Harold Clay still hopes  to reunite the class once more for this  special treat.  DONNA NEWICK  Many of you readers will have heard  of Donna Newtek's critical illness.

It is expected that all drivers will have  received their certificates in the mail by  mid-April. Included with the certificate  '   mailing the corporation has provided each  ,.. driver with an explanatory brochure, and  > ra complete guide to Autoplan insurance.  7 V' .Norman Bortnick, vice-president  and  ^.-.general manager of ICBC said the main  ..purpose of the driver certificate system  . is to assure'that both vehicle owners and  ;  drivers share appropriately in the costs  ;of insurance. Both Manitoba and Saskatchewan have similar drivers' certificate  .systems.  Bortnick emphasized that while the  drivers insurance certificates will be re-  , quired to validate the current driver's  on Cowrie Street. The house has been?;, licence, they are separate and distinct,  removed and the trees have gone t0> , ��� "Drivers licences are renewable every  make way for a marina. - five years, while the insurance certificate  is valid only for a year at a time, expiring  on the holder's birthday."  For the interim period from March  1, 1974, drivers will be assessed anywhere  from four months premium to 15 months,  depending on their birthday. After that,  the certificates will be issued for one-  year periods.  Once received by the driver, the certificates need only to be signed and mailed,  along with a cheque, in the postage-paid  envelope provided. Driving without a  valid driver certificate after July 1, 1974  will be an offence under the Motor Vehicle Act, carrying a manimum penalty  of $250 upon conviction.  , It is estimated that it will take about  four weeks for the certificates to be processed after they have been returned to  the Motor Vehicle Branch. Those drivers  who have not mailed back their certificates by June 1 will be able to have them  validated in person at any MVB office.  As well, any driver who has not received  a form in the mail by mid-April, will be  able   to   apply   in   person   at   the   MVB  offices.  "While the great majority of B.C.'s  drivers will pay only the basic $10 annual  driver's certificate rate," Bortnick said,  "it i^ estimated that about six per cent of  - the drivers���those people with six or  more points on their current driving record���will pay anywhere from $46 to  $110   for  a   12-month  period,   depending  '��n the number of points."  He said studies have clearly shown  that drivers with records ,of driving infractions are more likely to have accidents  and thus are greater insurance risks.  10  Bloke C. Alderson D.C.

WHAT shall it'profit a'man if he shall  gain the; whole world, and lose his  own soul (or himself)? Oh what shall a  man 'give in exchange for "his soul?  This statement from the Bible indicates the value of a soul. It tells us that  everything on this planet put together is  not worth your soul. This is more than  can be measured in billions of dollars.  If someone said to you, "You now own  Canada, you now possess this nation and  'everything in it", I doubt if your mind-  ' could grasp it; to have such possessions  '���and riches.would be astounding.'But yet  , your soul is worth more than owning  ..every country in the world, not justCan-  ��� ada.   -  ,7 My friend, this is no small thought.  % Jesus made this statement about the value  of a soul. He knows its worth because He  suffered, and died to purchase your soul.  * Why go on day after day, year after year  labouring for things that will all perish,  while neglecting rwhat really counts. The  soul is yourself, the' real you. Why be so  careless and risk losing it? Remember the  loss will be eternal, and once lost you  The Peninsula times Page C-5  Wednesday, March 27, 1974  cannot buy it back.  ^  -I urge you to take seriouscaution right  now regarding the saving of your soul by  coming to Jesus - for salvation.

Jones  Church  of  Jesus   Christ  of  Latter-day  Saints. _.  THIS month we will celebrate the 132nd'  anniversary of Relief Society. This is  the women's organization of the Church  of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. All  Mormon women, young and old, and many  of their friends are enrolled. We are  300,000 strong and world-wide. Our motto is: Charity never faileth.  How did we get started? On- Mardi  17, 1842 18 women met with the presiding  elders of the church in a second-storey  room of a store owned by the Prophet  Joseph Smith in Nauvoo, Illinois. A president, two counsellors and a secretary  were chosen and approved.  At this meeting the women were counselled to look after the needs of the poor,  to correct the morals and strengthen the  virtues of the community, to treat their  husbands with mildness and affection,  and to be examples of righteous living.  What do we do today? On Thursday  morning of every week, we meet in Selma  Park Hall near Sechelt to discuss a lesson  on one of these general subjects: Spiritual  living, homemaking, mother training,  social relations and cultural refinement.  Members who are best qualified are assigned to teach these subjects once each  month. The lessons are geared to a woman's special needs and are on a university level.  Spiritual'living, as the name implies,  is a study of the scriptures as they apply  to our everyday life. On this lesson day  we also discuss the visiting teachers'  message.  Since earliest times, the Relief Society  sisters, two by two have visited the homes  of church members monthly, carrying a  short message of inspiration.' It is their  duty to observe if ^ed, sickness or sorrow is present in the home. If so, they  report this to the proper church authority  and help is given. This visit lasts ten  minutes.  On the second Thursday of the month,  we have the homemaking lesson. The  subject will be health, nutrition, hospitality, budgeting or other topic pertinent  to the home and family. Demonstrations  in cooking, sewing, arts and crafts are  the order of the day. Quilting is an art  in which' Relief Society women every- ���  where are skilled,  On the third Thursday of the month,  1   there is a choice of mother education or  social  relations  for  discussion.  Mothers  , have the responsibility to teach correct/  principles by' precept and example. Ways  to  meet  the influence    of  undesirable  friends, motivate children to"work, han-  p die  teenage  emotions,  combat worldly/  p. moral values and understand one's role  in life are taught in the mother education  ,   lessons,,.     ,.-,   '."'; ;_ ,,,..,.,  . Jn the social relations lesson we learn  how tp build good relationships with out  husbands, our children and our friends  so that our interaction wl^h other people  may bo pleasant and satisfying, Compnsr  sionate service to others is stressed, 7  The last lesson of the month is cultural  , refinement, Our general objective Js to  become acquainted with the women in  various..'countries by studying their lands ,  and customs, nnd to develop an apprecla- .  tion for their art, literature and music,  This study satisfies ,our hunger for knowledge and beauty,   V  Besides tho courses mentioned, wo  enjoy many socials nnd projects, Wo preserve vegetables and fruits; we sow many  articles to contribute to our groat welfare plan.'Wc sing in ch6lrs, deliver hampers, stage fashion shows, Wcassist others  '* "*" in limeslot 'ne^rsiclcnesrand'4ea'ili,''  In an ngo of mnny frustrations, relief'  society Is a source of guidance nnd inspiration to women,  Christian Science  CAN our prayerful thought help our  community?

Halfmoon Bay Happenings  RESIDENTS of the Halfmoon Bay area  have heard with deep regret of the  sudden death of Gordon L. Brooke at his  home in Welcome Beach on^March 20.  Mr. Brooke had recently returned  from a three-week stay in St. Mary's  Hospital following a heart attack. When  death struck so suddenly, he was planning a round of golf with hia neighbor  Jack Morgan and playing off final games'  in the shuffleboard tournament at the  Welcome Beach Hall.  , Tremendously proud of his Canadian  heritage, he was a keen naturalist who  always- tried to preserve nature as he  found it He lived in harmony with nature and with his fellow man. A memorial service, conducted by the Rev. W.  N. Erickson, was held on March 22 at  Harvey's Funeral Home.  ���by Mary Tinkley  Boise, Idaho, where they attended the  wedding of their son, Steven. This was  the second marriage in the family within three months because their only otb  er son, Richard, was married in December at the Muffley home at Secret Cove  by the Rev. Jim Williamsbn.  SCUBA CLASS  Ross Lind, who with his wife Ann arid  son Jay, is renting the Boyle cottage at  Redrooffs, is organizing a course of instruction in scuba diving, under the auspices of the National Association of Underwater Instruction, a U.S. based organization whose theme is "safety through  education". The seven-day course includes five days' lectures and pool sessions at Lord Jim's followed by two days  of ocean dives and exams. Those "completing the course and passing the exams  receive certificates from the NAUI accrediting them as scuba divers. The $90.  fee includes the use of wet suit and tank  from Mr. Lind's fully equipped store for  the duration of the course.   ���  The sunny weather has brought many  visitors to the Bay. The Jack Temples are  spending a week's vacation at their cottage, are celebrating the 90th birthday of  Mrs. Temple's father, Ed CampbelL From  Squamish to join the celebration have  come Mr. Campbell's other daughter, Es-'  ther Anderson, with husband Doug,  At the Bob Trousdell home are Bob's  parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Trousdell of  Mill Bay. Alice Toth of Kelowna, with  her two sons Jimmy and Stevie, are visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Harp-  nick and her sister Janet.  PROTEST NOW  A reminder that there is no time to  lose in getting away your letter of protest regarding, the proposed, re-routing of  the buses, which-will leave the Redrooffe  Road without any public transportation  on April 15. Thiis is surely the most retrogressive step in the history of the area, and, strangely enough, it comes at a  time when there is a population explosion along Redrooffs Road. Many of these  recent settlers have bought lots and  built homes because of the bus service  and some older' pnes have given up their  cars because they too thought they could  rely on this service. During the summer,  residents and visitors alike have used the  buses to travel back and forth to Vancouver rather than be involved in long  waits for the ferries. If we actually lose  this bus service, this is surely going to   '  �� 1, , ,,       j  cause all the greater congestion on the    ,/^HGT.IlCclHS  ^   CUlBIlti.  So do get that letter off right away!  There is no time to lose if we are' going  to get action by April 15. You can address  your letter to SMT Coach Lines Ltd.,  8665 Barnard Street, Vancouver 14 and  be sure to send a copy to Don Lockstead,  MLA, Parliament Buildings, Victoria, For  those who find letter-writing a chore,  Area B Ratepayers' Association has mimeographed a protest letter to the Public  Utilities Commission which requires only your address and signature. Copies of  this letter can be obtained from Alex  Ellis, Mary Tinkley, Rita Rett, Bill Fraser and John Grognet.  United Church rites  ROBERTS CREEK���On Sunday, March  31, members of St, Aidan's Anglican  Church, as an ecumenical gesture, will  attend Roberts Creek United Church  services at 2:30 p.m. The Rev. Jim Williamson will conduct services. ,  Beginning April 7, St, Aidan's will  start services at 9:30 a.m. every Sunday  throughout the summer.  .SPRING has sprung, the grass has riz,  and no need to ask where the flowers  is.  Abundance of bloom all over the place  ...first batch of bantam chicks looking  for their first bug... kids hollering to go  swimming... surprising what the sunshine brings out.  Celebrating their birthdays on Irishman's day were Mrs. McHeffey, and Mrs.  Lou Pierce. Hostesses for the day were  Gibsons Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital.  Miss Peters had the appropriate green  decorations in the extended care lounge.  Entertainment was by dancers Sabrina  and. Shelly Robinson of Selma Park, who  danced up a good Irish jig; singers were  Mrs. Alice Horseman, Mrs. Marg Morgan'  Mrs. Elita Gilker," delightfully accompanied by Mr. Walton, on the piano. Singing  familiar Irish songs excellently was Walter James.  The  ladies   in  red   were  Mrs.  Elsie  Willis, Ivy Richards, Jean Longley and.  Marion Waldie.  The curling foursome were invited  back to Hope for a mixed bonspiel. They ���  must have made a good impression on  their last visit. This time half of their  group were in the prizes: Henry Hall,  Doris Ashton, Joe Fisher and Betty Dixon.  They rubbed it in to their corresponding  counterparts, Lydia, Dave, Melinda and  Gordon.  Tim and Jane Newcombe were rightly  concerned over a poor dog on Porpoise  Bay wharf. Someone had backed over it  then instead of helping the animal they  kicked it into the water. The dog managed  to swim to shore. Tim rushed him to the  animal shelter where it was found to  have no broken bones, possible internal  injuries. Last word they were trying to  find the owner of this grey, part police  dog and shaking their heads over the  cruelty of some humans.

EDITOR'S note: Maryanne West, of Gibsons, is a member of, the B.C. committee on the CBC4 and the group presented a kief at the recent public hearings held by Canadian Radio and Television Commission (CRTC) in Ottawa. Mrs.  West prepared some comments on the  hearings for Times readers).  By MARYANNE WEST  By the time you read this I imagine  those of you who are interested in the  problems inherent in broadcasting in a  country as vast and complex as Canada  are feeling a little overwhelmed by the  reporting from the CRTC Hearings on  the CBC which took place in Ottawa,  You ���will be aware too, of some quite  natural scepticism as to the value of such  a marathon exercise. I heard it described  as "the misguided giving direction to the  blind" and I must admit to setting out  in much that frame of mind.  .Pierre Juneau,- obviously aware of the  danger of such public theatre being exploited to promote confrontation rather  than worthwhile discussion, made it cliSar  in his opening remarks as chairman that  no such irresponsibility would be tolerated, the CBC was not in any sense "on  trial" and the hearings would be conducted in a serene and relaxed atmo-  ^Sp_!  m^smmma  885-2205  MITES 885-2084  m^m^m^  ���ttSSSSStStbeft  wmmiummmmmmmmM/itM  sphere. He's an excellent chairman and"  his wishes were,adhered .to.  The moment of truth arrived for the  B.C. committee on the CBC and we found  ourselves sitting'at the tables left of centre and Mr. Juneau went out of his way  to make us feel welcome and at ease.  DOCUMENTARY  We made bur presentation in the form  of a documentary for five voices using  quotations from many of the 350 letters  we had received from all over British  Columbia, the Yukon, Northwest Territories and into Alberta, to illustrate and-  support our recommendations. We ended  with a short filmed interview with 91-  year-old Charles Bowman of Nanaimo  who served on the royal commission  which was instrumental in setting up the,  CBC because in the-1920s Canadians were  already" concerned about being overwhelmed by U.S. culture.  ��� Rehearsals in hotel rooms and corridors paid off, the whole piece ran smoothly with no missed'cues or closed mikes,  and was very well received not only by  the commissioners with public commendation but we were overwhelmed, even  embarrassed by congratulations from'  everyone.  Undoubtedly this was in part because  of the different and interesting format '  of our presentation but I think mainly  because we represented the concern of  ~ ordinary Canadians with no vested interest in the  corporation.  A number of groups shared our concern (some prepared to compromise). I  was most impressed by the stand of  ACTRA, (the actors and performers  union) whose members earned over $4  million last year from commercials but  who were willing to put the country's  interests before their own and made a  strong-well-documented, and logical plea  for a public broadcasting system.  REVENUES   VALUED  Will any such recommendations be attached to the CBC's licence? I don't think .  so. The CBC administration values the  advertising revenue, having somewhere  along the way espoused the commercial  criteria which equates success with ratings���and there are complex and difficult  problems for subsidiary stations which  depend upon selling advertising for their  existence. Mr. Picard stated unequivocally that even if the government came up  with"the $80 million extra he'd put it into  programming not get out of advertising.  In discussion with us Mr. Juneau made  it clear those $80 million would only be  forthcoming from the government as a  result of a surge of public opinion���which  of course, is how things are changed in a  democratic system,  immmamammimmmmHiatA  of those who would write off the hearings  as an exercise in futility and a waste of  time. It was an opportunity for; Canadians  to talk publicly to the CBC and the government about the sort of broadcasting-'  system we want. Of course there wefe   -  conflicting views and many people are  >  still thinking only in terms of using thej  CBC for their own interests but it was  surely a beginning, a forum for the expression of the diverse needs of Canadians  in today's complex and changing society.  We have to go on from here to find ways  and means to develop this national network, to realize its potential to serve us,  flexible enough to respond to regional  and  community   needs  and  yet  strong  enough to withstand manipulation by any  group for its own interest. It's a continu-.  ing process, not a one-shot confrontation.  I do not accept M. Picard's statement  as necessarily final and definitive ��� it  serves to allay the panic of the subsidiary stations who undoubtedly thought  they were in danger of being sold down  the river.  PUBLIC OPINION SOUGHT  If we really want a public broadcasting system for Canada, one which is not  programmed to sell toothpaste and deo- -  dorants, but is ours to use to talk to  each other, to listen to each other and  to express our Canadian way of life in  all its many facets, then we take up  Mr. Juneau's challenge to create that  surge of public opinion. Like everything  else in life, it depends upon whether you  and I care enough to make our feelings  known.    ,  We did also achieve some concrete results. The ads to come off CBC radio  and money |from the government to extend CBC to areas not yet properly  served. Whether this will include the  Sunshine Coast, in particular the Pender.  Harbour area, is not yet clear but Mrs. .  Julia Gower, one of B.C.'s commissioners  on the CRTC and a very livewire, will  visit the area in the summer and.next  month two of the CBC administrators  plan to come to the Sunshine Coast, Bill  Armstrong, .vice-president, public relations and Peter Meggs, director, network  radio programming. Dates are not yet  confirmed. ''  - Returning via Toronto I was entrusted,  by CBC radio to bring greetings to all  listeners on the Sunshine Coast and to  "say how much your comments, whether  in the form of serious letters or short  notes (even flippant remarks!) are" appreciated from Peter G-owski and the  "This Country in the Morning" team,  Barbara Frum and Harry Brown of "As  It Happens"; Warren Davis, Diane Filer  and Elizabeth Barrie of "Concern" and  Bill McNeill.  :*.

Members enjoy free chequing services  ,and money orders and American Express  travellers cheques are offered for sale.
