And in a letter submitted to the Sunshine Coast Regional District Board  March 29, they warned:  "We assure you that any attempt to  finalize *a relocation on any route which  deviates greatly1 from this location will  meet with the same rejection and failure  as previous attempts to finalize this relocation."  The committee is "extremely concerned at the lack of information, and appar  ent progress with the technical planning  committee's study of the relocation of  Highway 101," the letter stated.        v  "We fail to understand the considerable length of time which it has taken to  complete a relatively simple study Which\  by the terms of reference as we understand, is merely to locate various accesses  and co- ordinate the relation with the  local street system.       * ',--'  'Various unofficial, reports have come  to our attention that -the committee is  considering alternate locations for' the  relocation including the original route' 'A*.  . ,?It is our 'understanding from the  statistics presented and exchanged which  took place at your meeting with the Dept.  of Highways in October 1972 that the  only,logical route for a Gibsons by-pass  was in the vicinity of the B.C. Hydro  transmission lines." "^ -  The committee pointed out that local  traffic  conditions,   particularly   in   the  tourist season, made it imperative for the'  relocation to be settled quickly.  Area   TO*  representative,' Harry   Almond, told the board he understood the  technical   planning   committee   report j  would be available in ApriL ���'*  District planner, Ed Cuylits, said tnp  study was considerably more complex,  than the advisory committee seemed,to  think, and that it must be done thoroughly. -  v.  Under other business, the hoard agreed  to ban the discharge of firearms around  Gibsons garbage dump, following a letter  of complaint from the Gibsons's Wildlife  Club. , \  Megan Moorcrbft, conservation chairman of the club, noted the "indiscriminate  shooting of bears at the garbage dump  serving the village and the district.  "Because of this deplorable behavior,  we would like to ask, and would hope,  that this area-and all other areas in the  district be posted as follows:  "The discharge of firearms prohibited  in this area." ,        '   _  She recommended that the RCMP be  requested to enforce the prohibition.  "We regret that this will entail more  work with additional patrol for the RCMP. We regret even' more that this will,'  in effect, put a stop to kids shooting rats  with .22s, which has been most useful  pastime for many years all over the  country."  . Mrs. Moorcroft noted that bears could  be shot legally during a season laid down  by the Fish and Wildlife Branch.",  Charles Gooding, district administrator, said the shooting of bears had been  a nuisance to district maintenance men  for some time. They had to dispose of  decaying bodies, he said.  On the motion of Harry Almond, the  board agreed to' endorse the Gibsons  Wildlife Club proposal.  Rita Relf, area 'B' representative, felt  the district should consider a firearms bylaw prohibiting the discharge of firearms  from the highway to the waterfront.  "You can get shot in my area just by  going into the back yard," she said.  Alternate director Aid. Winston Robinson of Gibsons suggested that local wildlife clubs should be consulted about any  future firearms bylaw.  ���see page 11  ENINSULA  Serving the Sunshine Coast, (Howe Sound to Jervls Inlet), Including Port Wletlon, Hopkins Landing, Granthams Landing, Gibsons; Roberts Creek,  Wilson Creek, Selma Pork, Sechelt, Holfmopn Boy, Secret Cove, Pender Hrb., Madeira Pork, Garden Boy, Irvine's Landing, Earl Cove, Egmont  LARGEST CIRCULATION OF ANY PAPER ON THE SOUTHERN SUNSHINE COAST.

Mary's Hospital  Society has come  under fire for proposing to bar non-  members from its April 12 meeting;  ..  Director Rita Relf (Area A) told the  Regional District Hospital Board March  29 that the society handles public funds,  so "taxpayers have a right to attend."  She labelled the society's $15,000 deficit "quite a loss" and suggested the  board might be able to run St. Mary's  better.  Area E representative Frank West  pointed out that the April 12 meeting was  a membership meeting and the society  was "ordained to run the hospital"  St. Mary's is registered as owned by  the society, he said, and although they  use public funds, they money is shown  as grants or donations.  Mrs. Relf said: "This seems to be a  holdover from the time when it was a  society. It's not a society now."  J. H. Tyner, Area A, said responsibility for the hospital had to rest with  some organization, and this was why the  society was formed. -_  "There must,be a better way," sa*T-'  Miss Relf. .    '  On her suggestion of thef regional district taking over responsibility for'St.  CHAPTER   of   the  Pacific   Community  Sfcut^evefopment Society, has been  formed on the Sunshine Coast "to aid in  promoting community development"  One of the founders, Yetta Lees of  Gibsons, explained:  "Our chapter is called the Sunshine  Coast Craft Fair, and the idea, primarily,  is to see what we can do, using arts and  crafts as a vehicle, to get people together."  Projects slated by the Craft Fair include an exhibition of arts and crafts and  a series of workshops for both children  and adults, she told The Times.  Their Victoria-based parent organization has backed a number of community-  oriented projects in that city such as  Cool Aid, a crisis centre for young people.  Sunshine Coast Craft Fair comprises  12 members, eight of whom are directors.  Yetta belongs to the Pacific Community  Self-Development Society, and, ultimately, will be hired by the chapter to coordinate its activities.  "We have applied for an Opportunities  for Youth grant," she said, "and we  should know about funding by the end of  April, In time to organize a summer fair.  If we don't get the OFY grant, we'll see  what we can do without government aid."  But this might force the Craft Fair to  operate on a reduced basis, she said, and  even necessitate charging for some of  their programs.  " We're hoping we don't have to do  this," she said.  Building values top  $407,000 last month  VALUE of building and plumbing permits  issued  by the  Sunshine Coast  Regional District in March totalled $407,-  000.  Building inspector,' F. A. Reyburn,  reported to the board of directors March  20 that 31 permits totalling $316,000 had  been approved up to March 27. And, he  said, another seven permits totalling  $191,000 worth of construction would be  processed by the end of the month.  Figures for the various areas up to  March 27 are as follows: .  Area A, $51,000; Area B, $101,000;  Area C, $21,000; Area D, $39,000; Area E,  $04,000; Area F, $40,000.  Sunshine Coastings  by DICK  PROCTOR  C. P.  (BAD  B&llantine of Gibsons  is the originator of the phrase  "Sunshine Coast", according to Copt.  John Bunyan of Sechelt.  Oapt. Bunyan, retired from the  ferry service, and operating Banyan's Variety, said that Bal coined  the term in 1946. Bal is the uncle  of Gordon Ballantine. who, with  George Frith started the old Sea Bus  Lines, the forerunner of the present  ferry service. Sea Bus Lines, used to  operate from Fisherman's Coyo to  Gibsons and the service started in  1945.  Bal, who built Bal's Block In Gibsons, was a progressive merchant  and great booster of the coast. Ho  also coined the term, "Watch Gibsons grow."  J. S. Browning of Sechett, one of  tho regular and most popular letter  writers to The Times, who was apparently caught in a rainstorm at the  lime, replied to my query about who  coined tho term Sunshine Coast,  commented: "I dunno, but whoever  he was, ho had a vivid imagination.  Ho should have written, a book of  fairy tales. It would have boon a  best seller."  Helen Dawe, who is compiling a  history of the Sechelt area, said that  tho All Red Line, which ran the  "Selma" to Powell River entered a  rate war with Bert Whitokar's Sechelt Steamship Co. which ran tho  "Tartar" from Vancouver to Sechelt  and way points in 1910. Whltaker refused service to All Red Lines at  chased property at Selma Pafrk  which was subsequently purchased  by Union Steamship Co. in 1917.  Union developed a resort there.  Anyway, Miss Dawe says "North  by West in the Sunlight'' was the  motto of either All Red Line or Union  Steamship Co. "Was this tho origin  of our ciirrent Usage "Sunshine  Coast," she asks.  Speaking of history, F. J. Wyn-  gaort of Gibsons, who has been compiling a history of the area from 180ft  to December 1971, would like to know  about some of the newspapers of tho  area.  Wyngaort, who came to Gibsons  vLandlng in 1909 wrote to Al Alsgard  of Powell River seeking his help in  building the history of newspaperlng  here. He sold that he 'is aware, of  the Eagle, a two-page mimeograph  sheet ito which he contribulbed in  1931-32.  Ho is searching for the name of  what could be referred to as tho first  newspaper edited here. He said the  year was 1930-37 and the paper was  edited in Roberts Creek outlining  Peninsula news and printed In Powell  Itlver. Wyngaort said that several  persons 'recalled the paper and tho  person who edited it, but not tho  name, i Ho thinks he recalls It being  called tho Peninsula Advocate.  Alsgard replied: "Tho only paper  I know of in tho Peninsula area was  tho Coast News which Ernest Parr-  Pearson and myself started In 1943,  and which Ernie edited from Half-  moon Bay. Later we moved the offifco  to Sechelt and then In 1948 we sold  it to Bill Sutherland and Sam Nutter  who moved It ito Gibsons." iFred  Cruice later purchased the paper.  Prior to ���that there was a paper  printed by Claude Hoodspith named  the Peninsula Times, says Al. .  Alsgard was In the printing' business prior to 1936 and could not recall any such publication that Wyngaort referred to.  All of which brings us to a round  about way of telling everyone that  The Peninsula Times is planning a  progress edition in the early summer. We hope to cover the Peninsula's history and future with pictures and articles and we would like  Mary's, West felt the board had "enough  on its plate."  Chairman Lome Wolverton said the  organizational set-up should be looked  into, "but the April 12 meeting is a membership meeting and there is nothing we  can do about it.  Under other business, West felt the  regional board should urge the administration of St. Mary's to use the $25,000  left unspent from the district's hospital  expansion bylaw. ,  "For quite a few months, we have  been after the hospital administration to  wind up the by-law. I'd like the reggion-  al board to put some pressure on them  Booth cleanup  due Sunday  SECHELT���A work party to help dean  up the Sechelt and District Chamber  of Commerce's new tourist information  n trailer will be held Sunday at 1 pan.  ^- president Morgan Thompson struck a  'committee to determine the best period  for the operation of the trailer this summer. W  Members of the committee are: Thorn-.  pson, Mayor Ben Lang, Bob Scales, Ann  Martin and John Thomas. Cost of operating the trailer is the determining factor,  the members were told at their regular  meeting in Wilson Creek Hall.  Scales moved that the chamber write  the village council requesting its usual  grant to help finance operating the tourist booth.  A discussion was carried on about the  value of the tourist booth and Thomas  asked: "Who' benefits most from tourism?" .    ;  "We. all do," said several members.  The following persons were accepted  for membership: Don Radcliffe, Bob  Allan, John Robinson and John Bunyan.  A tentative date of April 22-29 was  decided upon for clean-up week.  The chamber will donate $50 to either  Pender Harbour Secondary or Elphin-  atone for a graduating student to carry on  his studies.  Because the public is dirty, miserable  and inconsiderate, access to Sergeants Bay  is closed, said Ben Lang. The privately  owned lot was open for public use but  the health department suggested that the  owner install toilets, he decided to close  the site to the public.  A blood donors clinic will be held  April 30, 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. in St, Mary's  Hospital, said Long.  A day to honor tho RCMP on May 23  to mark their centennial was suggested  to the chamber.  Thompson suggested that the chamber  write to Sechelt village council offering  its support of the proposal. Mountles on  duty on May 23 will bo wearing red serge  uniforms, the members were told.  Members discussed the recent ban of  the strap at public schools and a proposal  to protest to Education Minister EUccn  DalHcy was suggested. Discussion centered on tho pros and cona of corporal punishment but no action was taken.  The department of'highways follows  n standard procedure throughout the pro-  to finish it and get the final audit,"  he said.  The board agreed to support West in  his bid to speed up expenditure of the  $25,000.  Administrator Charles Gooding predicted the mill rate could drop in 1973  because of lower hospital budget requirements.  In presenting the hospital district budget for this year, he noted that the $71,541  total requirement was less than the 1972  figure.  The budget calls for $118,723 in ex  penditure, ' against estimated c a p & t a 1  grants of $40,121, leaving the district with  a total requirement of $71,541.  Of this figure, $24,845 falls under long  term borrowing for hospital sites, Construction, equipment, supplies and working capital'  Trustee West cautioned that although  district requirements were lower this  year than in 1972, "all our debentures  have not been sold, and any drop in  spending" will probably catch up with us  in 1974." ^    .

SUNSHINE Coast Regional District board  . has denied allegations that standpipes  In the Selma Park area have fallen into  disrepair since tho regional district took  over fire protection duties from the Selma Park Improvement District..  In a letter submitted to the board  March 20, Selma Pork Community Centre  secretary M. Duval said:  "The recent fire at the Red Booster  Drlvc-ln ot Davis Day has brought to  light the fact that Selma Park and Davis  Bay nrcaa have very' little in the form  of fire hydrants." (Sechelt Fire Department claimed they had to run their hoses  n mile to tho nearest hydrant), .  "The Selma Park Improvement District Installed and maintained a number  of standpipes for fire protection In tho  Selma Pork area. Since tho regional board  took over tho duties of tho Improvement  district, wo naturally figured that they  would also continue to maintain the  standpipes.  "Wo understand that tow, If any, of  these standpipes ore now serviceable.  "Director (Bert) Blade (Area C) pointed out that it Ja tho policy of the regional  board to lnstal six now fire hydrants a  year.

"We  can Just put in as many as will come  out of tho rentals,"  Director Slade admitted saying that  tho district was installing six now hydrants a year, "and I was quite surprised  when I saw we weren't providing for  them."  Chairman,,Lome Wolverton said that  hydrants cost $700 each. "Where does  the money come from7" ho asked.     (  Harry Almond, Area D representative  said that when the present water system  woh proposed, thoy Intended having six  hydrants per mile.  Slade said that this was a standard  suggested by the district's underwriters.  Director Frank West sold that, they  would only npproach this figure in built-  in areas. "If wo bad six hydrants per  mile, most of them would bo In empty  places."  Wolverton said tho district was doing  its best to npproach the underwriter's  requested standards.  Tho directors were concerned obout  the flro department charge of having to  run their hoses a mile to the nearest  hydrant. Slade pointed out that there was  a standplpe at the Selma Park store and  another on ��� tho corner near tho Bed  Booster.

People have more leisure  time and more is coming. Work days are  becoming shorter and although it isn't  widespread on the Sunshine Coast, the  four-day work week is popular in many  places. With more, and mote time on  their hands people will turn to leisure  activities to occupy that time.  Youngsters have more time on their  hands! Ask any judge, policeman, probation officer or priest Youngsters can  find things to do alright. They may. not  be the right things but they will do  something.  Recreation centres such as the one  at Roberts Creek are just the things to  put those idle hands to work. .  Take a look at what is in the centre  now. Attend meetings and find out what  can be in the centre if voters approve  funding for it.  After you have looked over the rec-  bus offences. They are not necessarily  bad youngsters but many of them can  get into trouble because of a lack of  constructive activities.

It's a tempest that's not worth the  space it has generated. Recently a person in Gibsons wrote a letter to Gibsons  area newspaper chastising pensioners for  "their many sources of income," and for  their jaunts to Mexico, Hawaii and other  pleasure spots.  .Surely such a letter was written in  jest or at least to raise the ire of many  retired citizens.

This I resent. None of my circle of  "friends is against the proposed rec centre  nor any other worthwhile project. If there  are a few, it may be probable that they  have a reason other than selfishness and  there are' a great many, other than OAPs,  who are not hi favor of the centre at this  time. Why pick on OAPs?.  One writer states that he and, his  wife brought up four children on "very  little". Good! I was a widow with young  children and I didn't drown them either,  in fact, bought them up also. And now  that they have children of their own and  maybe have, to pay a little extra in taxes  to keep me in luxury, it is good to know  they don't have to take me into their  homes and keep me somehow. If-the^day  comes that they do, then under present  circumstances they won't be. out financially, as would have been the case before  pensions. And it won't be too long before  their generation will be taking my place.  Since the writers have jumped us all  together, may I place us generally in  three categories. Those of us, who gratefully, still own our own beloved, homes,  and because of it find it diffcult at times  to make both ends meet; those of us who  live in apartments and just manage nicely  and those of us who live in senior citizens  housing who are best off financially but  have had to sacrifice cherished personal  belongings into such small quarters.  It costs more,vin comparison, for an  OAP to maintain a home than a younger  person. For example, if a younger homeowner wants to give his house trim- *,  protective coat Of paint he buys a bucket  of paint and Saturday morning goes out  and applies it. An OAP buys the paint  and has to pay someone $150 to $200 to do  the job.' Likewise digging the garden, cutting the; grass, any job which requires  standing on a ladder. When young work-;  dng people getting $6 per hour (possibly  a working wife, too) and are faced with  getting work done on their homes at $6  or so an hour they raise a fuss���but the  \ OAP just pays it and goes without everything else for awhile. I point this but just  to show you that we aren't rolling in  extra money. ,/  One writer seems to resent one lovely,  perhaps Once in a lifetime, trip to Hawaii,  by charter at reduced rates.

Thkt's too  bad because if anybody deserves -such  trips it certainly has to be the retired  people who are responsible for putting  Canada on the map.; ^  The letter writer apparently assumes  that all pensioners are flat opposed to  the recreation centre._ This is certainly  not the case.

You also refer to,  getting a raise in the Canada security'  pension (recently raised) retirement pensions and so forth. Yes! T got a retirement pension from the firm I worked for  ' in Vancouver for 27 years the large  amount of $19.70 per month so where do  you get your figures of large retirement  pensions? !     .  , To give a rim down on what I receive in pensions and what I pay in  taxes is as follows, including the mini-  come provincial pension, which some are  now receiving. My net taxes for last year  amount "to provincial taxes: $197;" water  rates $211; total $408.  Now add your light or heat onto this,  which amounts to approximately $25 per  month, thus $300 per year. By the time  you pay all this money out in taxes and  utilities from a pension of little more  than $2,5Q0 per year, it leaves you a  rough balance of about $1,800 to live on  membership, prior to the previous plebiscite, it was passed unanimously that we  were in agreement in principle of a' recreation centre as presented to us. But  -��� as this plan had nothing to offer us in the  form of recreation beneficial to us and  coupled i with the transportation problem  (at a cost to us) was not in our best interests. Therefore the above was submitted to council ara meeting to express our  . views and the reasons for same and our  reasons for non-suport ot the project  where we OAPs are concerned as this  would impose a further burden on us.  We are' in no way opposed to the  younger generation having fun. We, in our  day, made our own. We realize that this  is a changing world and I can assure you  it is not for the better. Be that as it may  - ���this person for lack of a better "designation refers to older.people as "a-lot of  senior citizens who protest so loudly" as  a "selfish lot"..  This person is'irked by the fact that  for the most part we must live in inexpensive homes in a more or less mediocre  section and pay only one dollar taxes,  while they, presumably in an expensive  home in a select area, must pay full taxes.  Secondly, do you Mr., Mrs., or Ms. live  . on the $200 provided by the government  or do. you rely on your reserve which  most of us do not have?  A couple of points before I close I feel  should be clarified: 1. Persons who travel  ' to Hawaii, Reno, Mexico ... do so strictly on their own by whatever means at  their disposal.  -  2. I would like to go on record stating  that we OAPs do not oppose anything  beneficial to the community. But in view  of the recent rash of vandalism recently  in which several of our pensioners have  been hurt materially in various forms,  is it fair to ask us to help supply recreation at our expense for younger people  who hurt us? I'm quite sure that it is  not older people who are causing this  damage and I appeal to these younger  people to. stop this vandalism and especially where it involved older people and  we will thank them for i*.  To clarify the carpet bowls situation.  The original set was donated by the Legion to the athletic association. I presume  for community use but primarily for pensioners. The second set was purchased by  the OAP group from our funds. The third  "set was purchased by the athletic association. The OAP group owns only one set  of bowls and the others were never donated to us.  Thirdly to clarify the situation on the  shopping trips that we are supposed to  have made through the generosity of the  merchants we have made only one such  trip���a busload to Richmond last year  prior to Christmas which was primarily  a pleasure trip and at which I venture  to say that from the whole busload, with  one exception, there wasn't $100 spent on  this trip and in no way did the merchants subsidize it Every person paid his  or her own way.  Regarding donations to us by merch  ants,, they, as well as others have been  most generous to us. But indirectly, as  all these donations have been relayed -to  us "through Other groups and we are most  grateful and thank all concerned for any  such.' But to my knowledge our group  have never solicited donations up to how.  Let we say in closing that I hope this  clarifies pur' position for all times.  L. D. MacLAREN  President, Branch 38,  OAP, Gibsons  'First things tirst'  Editor} The Times,  Sir:   Re:   the  meeting    at Welcome  Beach Hall on March 28 to hear about,  and discuss the proposed recreation centre at Roberts Creek.  It amazed me that no one from West  Sechelt bothered to come and only three  from the Secret Cove part of Area' B.  Many were there from the Redrobffs  Road and Welcome Beach areas of Half-  moon Bay and all were-unanimous that  an increase in the mill rate of three was  impossible on either a small, fixed income  or old age pension. It was also queried  that if (as the present government has  promised) the school taxes come off  homeowner taxation would the home-  ownergrant remain? It was considered  most unlikely! Therefore, many people  would, in that case, be taxed more heavily than at present.  Also in the whole of the area north  ' of West Sechelt water is the main ���problem.  If water comes from West Sechelt as  proposed by the regional board then the  land tax of $40 per lot will have to be  met or if sewage main drains come, the  inpreased cost of this will have;to be  met.  So, first things first in the retirement area please!  Many residents in this area helped to  build and raised the necessary funds  locally for the Welcome Beach recreation hall and it isVvused five nights a  week by the area. A few from West  Sechelt come to the 35-cent film shows  twice a month and to the Christmas arid  Halloween parties also to the recreational  group of Area B parties for teenage and  younger children.      *  The younger and more active group  could drive their kids as far as Roberts  Creek and may be willing���as they are  stilljemployed and earning high wages���  to pay the extra three mills.  Only the vote will tell so do all  vote and cease ,to grumble.  DOROTHY GREENE  Halfmoon Bay^  MISS BEE'S  CARD & GIFT SHOP  WW teed . SectieR - 883-9066  P.O.

Sechelt  Slaves of security  Editor, The Times,  Sir: Tho curso of Canada today is the  manner in which we have become slaves  . of security. In effect, we continue to  relinquish our freedoms, rights, drives  dreams and desires In return for welfarism, grants, subsidies and giveaways.  All too often tho price of security  Is acceptance of the commonplace standard of tho common man���the conformity  of the third-rate. Yet it was not the apathy and smugness of security that got  tho wheel and polio vaccine Invented���  but the Insecurity of hunger and disease.  It was the insecurity of religious persecution which brought, the Plymouth Pilgrims to the New World. The timid stayed  home, compromising their beliefs and  relinquishing part ot their freedom.  Todny, the socialist rides to power  on tho backs of timid men who have  mode security their god. In the process,  yihey would havo all cltlezns enslaved In  ' tho "security" of a dictatorship that recognizes neither individual human rights  nor tho principles of freedom which date  back to tho Magna, Carta.

Edited by Joan Proctor - 886-2073  vmmmmmatmm  ���MfWMMMlMIMWimiMHtlWI'WWmWWI'WWWWAnA  Sjtraif taiK  Subsidized day care  centres are expanded  AN EXPANDED day care program, effective April 1, which subsidizes the cost  of day care services to families according  to a sliding scale of income and family  size, has been introduced by the department of rehabilitation and social improvement.  "The effect of this new program will  be to make more children able to enjoy  the benefits of day care,'4 Norman Levi,  minister, said. "For the first time government will be reaching beyond the low-  income levels to assist the average income  earner with day care costs. We are doing  this because government recognizes that  good day care is beneficial to children."  "I think the public should understand," Levi continued, "that the responsibility for developing more day care  services is an ongoing process, and that  the community must share that responsibility with government. The government has already demonstrated its willingness to share that task' with community groups by the introduction last  December of a capital grants program  available to non-profit/, organizations  through my department."  The new policy Levi" announced ex-  v tends existing subsidy arrangements to  include other child care services- such as  nursery schools, private kindergartens  (where no public ones exist) and before-  and-after-school care.  Eligibility for assistance with child  care costs is based on the number of  persons in the family group and net  family income. To qualify, each family  group eligible will be asked to fill out  a declaration of income form .and mail  it, to the local day care information centre or to the local office of the department of rehabilitation and social improvement.  Families not eligible according to the  scale, but still having difficulty meeting  -the cost of day care, may complete the  application for assistance with day care  fees form, which is available from the  day care information centres, or the district offices of die department. This will  enable families with major monthly medical expenses or similar- financial burdens to take advantage of the expanded  program. -  The Day Care Inormation Centre in  Vancouver is at-45 West 8th Ave. (telephone 873-3767, 873-3768 or 873-3760).  In Victoria, write .the Family and Children's Services at 1627 Fort Street, or  phone 382-5121.  In otiher areas, contact your district  office listed in the phone books, under  department of rehabilitation and social  . improvement  , The day care information centres have  been set up to provide information to  parents about services available to their  children, to let people know where day  care services are available near them,  and to try the help families determine  their eligibility for government-paid contributions.  The information centres will also provide consultative services to community  groups wishing to establish centres.  '  ��� by Joan Proctor  THE otiher 'day* someone tried to sell  me a new desk for my office. Now  I ask you, what could WsiEry be  more impersonal than a metal desk? ,  How could it have any character, let  alone charm?  I'm quite happy with my grandmother's old Singer sewing machine .  cabinet. It's just the right height, has  plenty of drawer space, even a partitioned one just perfect for holding  pens, pencils, paper clips and typing  erasers. But the best feature of au  is the good old treadle. It makes a  perfect foot-rest and when I become  overly inspired, the family can immediately tell because I treadle like  the blazes as I type. In between  thoughts it's fun just to sit there and  lazily treadle. Sort of like treading  water I suppose.  Where the machine itself used to  be housed, I now store typing paper.  The  wooden  box-like  arrangement  which once sat atop the machine to  . keep it dust-free is used elsewhere in  our house for a little fireside bench.  The salesman didjtis best toi sell  me on the attributes of his metal  furnishings^  then huffily suggested  that anyone who liked to 'treadle  while they worked must be some kind  - of weirdo. He said I'd probably get  over-developed ankles.  Well, I've found that the family  that treadles together settles together, I said. The Eds love to sit at my  sewing machine desk and "treadle  while they do their homework: Why,  I've even got one kid who practised  his piano lessons at it. We were too  poor to afford a piano at the time,  and then when we did get one, folks  came from miles around just to hear  him play a Brahms f'Sewnata.'*  "Oh reaMy!" said the,salesman  in disgust. "Why pst look at how  beat up the wood is on that old piece.  Metal can just be wiped clean and  stays gleaming and slick looking1,  That old wooden cabinet has gouges  out of it."  "Those happened years ago/' 1  said. One of my brother's used it for  a saw-horse and accidently sawed  part of the cabinet top. It doesn't  matter though, just gives it-more  character; Why I'll bet nobody'd ever  think of substituting a metal desk for  a saw-horse would they?"  "Your entire office looks highly  inefficient to me," he continued. Why,  you haven't even got a waste-paper  basket." ;  "i have too," I said indignantly  as I pointed to the corner of the room  where my old butter churn stood. "I  use the wooden paddle for pushing  the paper down," I said smugly.  "Well, anyhow, where are your  filing cabinets?" he inqiuredl "Ilyeni  office heeds metal "filing; cabinete:*,  "You're right, I countered, and  mine definitely are metal. As a matter of fact you're sitting on one of  them."  He stood up and gazed unbelievingly at the old steamer trunk. He  headed towards the door and then  circled around. I figured he was  either going to be sick or try some  further line of persuasion.  "'Hey, uhm, well ..... say,  would you mind if I tried, that old  treadle just a couple of times?"  "Sure, go ahead," I said smiling.  "You know, it really is neato."  in  Carpet bowling classes slated at Pender Harbour  \  PLANT SALE  WELCOME BEACH HALL  Saturday, April 7  2-4 p.m.  THIS YOUNG LAD is in his fourth  year of what could be 16 years of  plastic surgery, orthodontia and  speech therapy required to properly  correct a cleft lip and palate abnormality.

Tel discriminates,  j  Pender ratepayers claim  FORMER CANOE  PASS bridge is  known as Safiahlus Bridge. The name  change was made by the B.C. De��   of the Sechelt Indian Band Council,  partment of Highways as the request  PENDER Harbour Ratepayers Association  is fighting B.C. Tel's recent decision  to retain toll charges to their area.  B.C. Tel earlier rejected applications  to include Pender Harbour in the lower  Sunshine' Coast toll-free zone on the  grounds that projected usage did not justify the expense of conversion. ���  In a tetter submitted to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District March 29, J.  Jones, secretary of the ratepayers association, charged that the toll charge from  Wood Bay to Pender Harbour "discriminates against the Pender Harbour area  and holds back the natural flow of information between various parts of the  Peninsula." ^  He asked the board's help in establishing communications with B.C. Tel, which  4 failed  to  respond  to  letters  from the  ratepayers association.  "On February 7 of this year, we sent  a letter i to the British Columbia Telephone Company to the attention of their  president, Mr. J. Ernest Richardson. Up  to now, we haVen't received the courtesy  of a reply.  "Today1 (March 7) we have written  again! To us, there is no' excuse for not  answering our letter.  "Any help that you can give us in  this regard will be most appreciated."  The association's latest letter to B.C.  Tel reads as follows:,  "On January 12, 1970, the Pender Har-  bourx & District Ratepayers Association  (with close to 300 members) wrote regarding telephone service in this area.  "We were lead to believe that there  would be some major improvements made  within two years. ^  "Here it is three years later, and we  are still waiting for the most important  improvement���toll free calls throughout  the Peninsula and Nelson Island.    ^  "At a meeting of the Pender Harbour  and district Ratepayers Association, held  recently, it was unanimously passed that  a letter be sent to the British Columbia'  Telephone Company, asking when we can  expect toll free calls throughout the Pen- ,  insula. N  "The RCMP office is in Sechelt; the  hospital is also in Sechelt; the ambulance  service is at Halfmoon -Bay. All the above  are long distance calls which, in an  emergency, most times take a great deal  of time in completing, as compared to  local calls.  "Enclosed, is a copy of a statement  from the telephone company's 1971 annual report. Surely with such large expenditures made to improve-service, this  area could be made toll free.  "We cannot urge you too strongly to  make all the Sechelt Peninsula, including  Nelson Island, a toll-free area. The area  is, one unit, and we feel that the telephone company should treat'it as such.  Also, the Pender Harbour, Egmont*. and  Nelson Island areas are cut off from the  rest of the Peninsula because of the toll  charges. -  "An early reply would be appreciated."  iimnuiiniuiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiimiiiiiiiiHiiiiiimiimiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiw  ��� Put your message Into more  than 3,000 hornet (10,000  renders) in these economical  ���pel*.

FOSSILIZED remains ql man show signs*  f*  Kb  ingested    everyday.  However,
of tooth decay and gum disease dating
back to the Stone Age. The most common disorder was excessive wear of
teeth, probably the result of chewing
coarse foods. There is no evidence of
treatment until 700 B.C. and then any
any advances were kept secret. Rapid
advances are now made through research
and science but there are notN enough
dentists to correct all damage so preven-
' tion is important.
There is~ no single way to, prevent
tooth decay but measures can be taken to
reduce it. Tooth brushing removes food
particles from the teeth and prevents the
accumulation of dental plaque. Plaque
is gluey substance sticking to our teeth,
harbouring harmful bacteria. If unable
to brush; rinse well with water.
Reduce the amount of sweets in your
diet particularly in between meals. Foods
containing a lot of sugar should be eaten
at mealtime and the teeth cleansed immediately after.J5nacks should be limited to fresh fruits, cheese, nuts, popcorn
and. other foods with little or no sugar
content. By eating nourishing foods at
mealtime snacking will not be necessary.
The application of fluoride to the
teeth strengthens the enamel making it
more resistant to decay. Fluoride in the
community water supply is most effective
fluoride can be applied directly to the
teeth as well. This preventive treatment
is done in a dental office.
Visiting the dentist on a regular basis
can prevent dental disease. He can observe the growth and development of our
teeth and prevent pain that could result
from .badly decayed teeth. If there are
any problems he can correct them easily
and quickly in the early stages.

Fritz Leucht e, trustee of St.
Mary's Hospital Society, is looking
for help again. Earlier Fritz wrote
to about 15 organizations and asked
for donations of plants or money to
buy plants to help landscape the
hospital grounds. The hospital received $18,000 LIP grant but that was
for labor and does not include plants.
"Now, however," says Fritz, "we
are looking for lots of groundcover
from the public, St. Johnswort (Hypericum) and periwinkle (vinca) and
others maybe. These plants should
be brought in boxes to the hospital

is part of a three-year study-report,
defines the many zones" and subzones

plant the appropriate tree species in

improve spacing and thinning techniques, and it will help in wildlife

throughout North America. Packee

G. Bentley, president of Canadian Forest Products Ltd.,.at the  ninth annual 25-years service awards  banquet recently in Vancouver. H.  W. (Harry) Macdonald, vice-president, pulp, is in the background.  Safe Motoring  MINIBIKES represent the nation's fastest-growing recreation among children  10 to 14 years old.  The trend has fanned a controversy  betweenr those who say that minibikes  help youngsters develop skills needed for  operating a motor vehicle, and those who  claim they represent a serious safety,  hazard.  The B.C/ Automobile Association  agrees, that minibikes can be unsafe and  maintains that parents must assume  responsibility for purchasing one that is  safe as well as for laying down strict  rules governing its use.  BCAA says these are the-safety features parents should insist upon:  i/io A small engine to prevent, excessive  speeds.

The correct score should read, Haida,  21, Nootka 15.-  Last week the house games were volleyball for the girls and floor hockey for  ~the'boys. Junior girls played volleyball  Monday with Nootka winning as usual,  by taking two games and Haida, none.  "Junior .boys" played floor hockey on  Tuesday with Haida making,a winning  score of 1Q-2. There were a lot of bruised  boys after this game but there was a  quick recovery for the grade 10s as they  . play in the senior games also.  The senior boys game was on Thursday and it was what you would call quite  rough when the fighting to get the puck  results with a pack of five boys landing on top of Doug Barsaloux; people-  flying across the floor due to tripping  and quite a few sore people. Haida won  9-2.  We now have a tennis club which includes 24 members. The number of players is shared evenly between boys and  girls. We also have a schedule for practices: the morning and one noon hour for  boys and girls, and on Fridays it is a  mixed practice.  It looks like people are practising  for the big run before Easter. This run,  of course, is none other than the Ruby  Lake road relay. It begins at Ruby Lake  and ends at our school.  The grads' car wash last Saturday  was. a successful one and all are very  grateful to those who supported it. The  grads took in a profit of $54 at 99 cents  a wash. '.      .���'.-���.

After Canadian Forest  Products took over the mill, Frank was a.  heavy * duty equipment operator for 12  years and he took over his present job,  yard supervisor, 10 years ago.  Zantola used to box professionally  when he was a teenager and he founded  a boxing club at Port Mellon. He has  taught hundreds of children from Port  ;��� Mellon' "and . Gibsons the basics of the  sport. "Often," he says, "there were 50  children in the hall at a time. The highlight of our year used to be the trips to  take part in competitions in Vancouver  and elsewhere."  Nearly 600 persons attended the banquet for long-service employees of the  Canfor Group of companies. Chairman J.  G. Prentice and President L. L. G.

The program has been expanded to include  nursery schools, private kindergartens (where  no public ones exist) and out-of school care.  Families can now shop around for the service  that best suits their needs. In addition; more  families will be eligible for government-paid  contributions whether the parents are working  or not.  Any family participating in the day care  program can tell you the benefits ... reliable  (and if need be ��� special) care for your children, more resources available to the family,  as well as a wider choice of day care services.  The cost is calculated on the number of  persons in the family "group" and the total  family "take home pay" plus income from any  other sources. .  The Provincial Government will subsidize the cost of day core to families on a simple  sliding scale. (See the chart below.) For example, in a three person family, ^two parents  and 1 child or 1 parent and 2 children) if the  total take home pay is $460, the chart shows  that that family group would pay a total $5 a  month for day care for the children and the  fovernment would pay the balance of up to  lOO.OOper child. The DECLARATION OF  INCOME FPRM(for those who qualify on the  chart) must be completed in order to qualify  for Provincial Government contributions, and  is available from the Day Care Information  Centre in each area. It is processed by moil,  so no interview will be necessary.  "' People who are not eligible_for government contributions according to the chart, but  will still have difficulty meeting the cost of  day care, may request the APPLICATION  FOR ASSISTANCE WITH DAY CARE FEES  from the local Day Care Information Centre  or district office of the Department of Rehabilitation and Social Improvement.  The day care information centres are set  up by the Provincial Government to provide  information to parents looking for care for  their children, about where day care centres  exist in the different areas, and to help new  centres with licensing regulations. The information centres will also try to help families determine their eligibility for government paid  contributions.

At the movies . * ���  Red Shoes' to be shown  tonight by film society  SUNDAY was a beautiful sunny day, the  kind of day we had been waiting for.  A five-year old girl, two ten-year old  girls, mother and! a grandmother, went  for a walk through the recreation park at  Roberts Creek.   .  The trails are laid out so well with  easy grades, soft ground underfoot everyone made the tour easily. Children who  live all their life by the ocean found the  streams an outstanding delight. Untouched, the water wends its way down  through the park, oyer rocks higher than  a house, drops over a sudden cliff, slips  quietly over smaller rocks, widens out  to a quiet pool, agitatedly leaps around  corners, over logs, under bridges, constructed by man, but in such a way they-  are part of the woodland glory.  The small one is a cautious soul, even  she found a spot where she could get  ' to the waters edge to scoop up a drink of *  ' water in her cupped hands.  The senior member couldn't get over  the work that had been done, theN trails  and bridges done so cleverly that it perhaps takes a more experienced eye to  see the amount of work it takes to make  it all appear so natural  The lecture hall, so simple, done with  the   materials   at   hand  so  effectively,  makes one want to take part be it either  as a listener or a talker.  - Friendly picnic tables wait invitingly  ���  for picnicers on the banks of the streams.  People who can do what has been  f done to this recreation park;, on their -  own time, or by donations of money, men  and  equipment are deserving- of your  -  interest and cooperation in adding further  facilities for everyone's enjoyment.  Main objection is, "It is going to cost  too much on our taxes," and, '1 may  never get to use the facilities." .Is this  really the objection? There may be a  few who can honehtly say "it's the added  tax that is the reason, but it is like the  fellow who should quit smoking and can  find a host of reasons why he shouldn't.  Open up your mind, think what it could  mean, to many people who may never  go inside. People start travelling up and  down the highway in huge numbers,  there is no doubt that there will be a  bus service bound to come.  Transporting people is not just done  by doting1 parents. Bingo brings out people from Egmont to Port Mellon. Distance  ����� does not deter them.  Ice skating can be a family affair,  ;    the families that travelled icy roads to  skate on lakes at Halfmoon Bay, Pender  rt Harbour or wherever, testified to that.  '.'���      This last week the holiday seekers  were at Reno. Archie and Sis Scott on  ��� one bus trip, met Marion Cook who went  on a: charter bus  with a  group from  - Langley. Another bus carried Mrs. Ina  Grafe and Mrs. Paula Gibbons, whose  biggest thrill was to see and hear Wayne  Newton, who they  say,  was. fabulous.  They all won some money and lost some  but that is the thrill of it.  "    Manifred Cook is still at St. Paul's  Hospital in Vancouver but he was hap-  L4>y that his wife could get away 'for a  Lfew days holidays.

Tho producer, Sam Sple- ,  gel, is noted for his Bhrewd choice of  subjects and directors. His previoue successes include Tho African Quean (directed by John Huston, and a Film Society presentation last October), On, th��  Waterfront (Ella Kazan) and Lawxenc�� of  Arabia. (David Lean).  For Nicholas and Alexandra, Spiegel  chose Franklin Schaffner as his director.

The  cast includes    the Royal    Shakespeare  Company's Janet Suzman as Alexandra,  Michael Jayston as the Tsar, Michael  Bryant as Lenin and Tom Baker as the  monk Rasputin whose power over Alexandra was widely feared.

However, everyone played really good  games, especially Gordie Water and Bradley Joe; High scorers for the Gibsons  squad were Randy Smith 15 and Wally  Nygren 4.  Despite an, outstanding 21 points performance from Sechelt Residence's Calvin Sparrow, Elphinstone 'S' took the  victory 37-31 in the next game. It was  a great team effort for the Elphinstone  squad, which is coached by Bill Sneddon.  On defense the club played a sagging  man-to-man that quite effectively stopped, the Residence offense. High scorers  from Frode Jorgenson or Jim Gray < at  for the winners were Bruce Hansen 16,  Andy Alsnger 13 and Brad Quarry 0.  Thursday's final game found Sechelt  Elementary again on the court, this time  against Elphinstone 'T\ Kelly Bodnarek  had 12 points and Bradley Joe 10 for Sechelt's final 36-28 triumph. Eric Clark  scored 10 and Gordon Currie 7 for Turner's Elphlnstone squad. Described as a  "grade' 6 sensation" by Coach Gray, Sechelt's Brad Rodway was just that. By far  the shortest player in the tournament, he '  says he's 4'2", Brad more than compensated far his lack of height with a great  display of hustle and determination.  Gibsons Elementary chalked up its  first victory of the season by defeating  Elphinstone 'T\ 20-10, Friday. Gibsons  hod a lot of hustle, good offensive rebounding and played a sound man-to-man  defense game, according to their coach  John Lowden. They also tried to keep  the ball away from Elphlnstone's big man,  Eric Clark, limiting him to only 0 points.  Raymond Boscr led Gibsons with 18  points and David Brackett added 4.

"Andy Alsager contributed quite well to the team, as usual,  despite a sprained wrist", remarked Elphlnstone tsoach Bill Sneddon.

At Ajijic, in a lovely  setting beside the serene and peaceful  Lake Chapala, they had the noisiest night  of their trip with clanging of bells and  the banging of firecrackers as the people  of Ajijic celebrated the Fiesta of their  patron saint, San Andres.  Generally, the Hoffars found the  hotels quite expensive, but however expensive and beautiful they were, there  were always things that did not work;  such as the elevator, or the plumbing,  and the electric power would fail at fairly  regular intervals. At some of the hotels  there were many interesting events organized for the guests, such as cocktail  parties, luncheons and orchestras.

Gray told The Tomes  he hopes to organize more nature  study expeditions to the centre.  OBBSONS���AJ busy" week in Gibsons Elementary ended Friday with the primary grades concert in the gym.  The afternoon kindergarten classes  accompanied by Mrs. Faye Birkin began  the program with a group of four songs  which they enjoyed as much as the audience of parents and friends.

The children in Mrs, Comb's class performed acquaint folk dance and a choral  recitation. With great verve the children  of Miss Atkins' class recited a poem a-  bout the positive qualities of 'yes* and the  third-year class instructed by Miss Fuoco  sang a group of three songs in two parts.

' Throngs of parents and  friends visited classrooms with their  children to examine notebooks and other  pupil work and to watch and hear pupils  busy at their science experiments, practicing in the band or going through regular class activities in physical education.  Art work in ceramics, flatwork, puppets  was also on display. Math problems and  puzzles were there to try the rusty ingenuity of the adult mind.  Over half the school visited the nature trails at the recreation centre park,  in Roberts Creek during the week, many  by hiking. They reported well-marked  trails with many trees labelled.

Fer- built in 1903 for service in New York-  fries, the Langdale Queen, still plies New Jersey and later she sailed San  the waters after 70 years. She was rfrancisco .Bay and   Puget Sound.  She's 70 vecns old ...  She's still going strong as a workhorse for B.C. Ferry Authority.  Langdale Queen is grand old lady  of international ferry services  ;B.C.   Ferries'   Langdale . Queen   can lift  her skirts and step along with the  ;best of/them but like a true/tefly, she  doesn't show her age. '  \    The speed queen of the B.C. fleet is  .70 years old. She was. built in 1903 as a  fast Sandy Hook excursion steamer in  ���the New    York-New Jersey area    and  sailed In San Francisco Bay as the San,?  iFtancisco-Vallejo  ferry  City  of  Sacra-**  rnento and later oh Puget Sound.  ���;    She was' built as  the Asbury Park  .at Philadelphia for the Central Railroad  of New Jersey. This was when elegant  day and night steamers competed with  trains  for  vacation business  to  Sandy  Hook.  ���] Her cabins were finished in fine wood  arid an elegant stairway, worthy of a  'trans-ocean ' steamship, was her architectural centrepiece.  At the time, Charles N. Hatch and  sons were building a fast ferry line on  San Francisco Bay, developing a property  formed by the late Zephenia Jefferson  Hatch. The elder Hatch had a steamboat  named Monticello after his birthplace in  New York. The ferry was plying the  waters of Puget Sound where she was  /built in Ballard and Hatch brought her  to San Francisco Bay and inaugurated  the successful San Francisco-Vallejo run.  v When World War I shipyard activities  swamped the ferry line the Navy asked  ihe company to find larger vessels. On  the east coast the Asbury Park was not  doing well and the railroad was happy  to sell her to the Hatch concern in 1918.  As originally built she was a coal  burner with two massive stacks. Upon  Arrival in San Francisco Bay, one'stack  Was removed and she was reboilered to  iburn oil. She entered Vallejo service in  ���1919 and was so fast the waves of her  wake caused the battleship California to  ;rock back and forth and break loose from  her moorings at the naval shipyard.  >. The ferry was rebuilt in 1922 to trans-  port automobiles and in 1925 was renamed City of Sacramento during a gala  ���celebration at Vallejo. Shortly thereafter  She was remodelled again.  t This time her sharp bow was removed  imd replaced by a garage door-like design for speedier loading of automobiles.  Jn order to provide an area on the deck  <or auto loading, it was necessary to  build that strange-shaped curve in tho  Ihull that still is visible today. The grand  staircase was retained.  .<  ��� The Hatch family realized that great  .bridges would soon doom the ferries.  %n 1927 they sold out to Golden Gate  vPerry Co. which specialized in the transport of motor vehicles. That company was  ;mcrged   into   Southern   Pacific   Golden  Gate Ferries Ltd. in 1929 the largest automobile ferry operation in the world.  SP brain service had, all but disappeared from Vallejo by ��� this time. The  electric road continued and new highways continued to funnel automobiles to  the fleet; until the Carquinez Bridge  spanned  the straits. '., "  On Sept. 12, 1937, the ferry route was  suspended and the electric interurban  ceased on Sept. 20.- The City of Sacra- ���  mento joined the long line of idled ferries  on Oakland Estuary and was offered for  sale along with her Vallejo run sisters,  the Napa Valley and Calistoga.  On April 24, 1941, all three Vallejo  ferries; were purchased by Puget Sound  Navigation Co., known as Black Ball  Lines, to generations of Seattlites and  British" Columbians. But warcloudjf  threatened and the Navy kept the. ships!  on the bay fengrihg shipyard workers*  The Calistoga didn't go north but the  Sacramento and Napa Valley arrived on  Puget Sound in 1943 and went into Seattle-Bremerton service���carrying loads of  familiar cargo���workers and sailors to the  Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. The Napa  Valley was renamed Malahat and was  1 retired about 1951.  The City of Sacramento was not renamed and when Black Ball sold its  operations to Washington State Ferries in  1951, the old veteran was taken to a  new Black Ball operation in B.C.  She was completely rebuilt as the  diesel-electric ferry Kahloke (White  Swan).  Peter Finlayson, present terminal manager at Langdale, sold the first ticket on  the Kahloke's maiden cruise from Na-  naimo to Vancouver on June 27, 1953, his  birthday. Aboard the ship as mates were  Capt. Allan White of Gibsons, presently  captain of the Sunshine Coast Queen and  Capt. John Bunyan, now retired and living in Sechelt.  After the ship was rebuilt, only the  hull of the old Asbury Park survived.  After Black Ball Lines was purchased  by the B.C. government, the ship was  renamed the Langdale Queen.  The Queen doesn't rest on her laurels,  Tax* reform*and the taxpayer  1      l        i    ... i - *��'��� . i -j  .

Our new tax laws provide that a  taxpayer,who ceases to be a resident  in Canada "shall he deemed to have  disposed of all his capital assets at  their fair market value.  The Canadian departure tax is an  attempt to ensure that people who  have lived in Canada do hot leave  without paying tax oh unrealized capital gains accrued to date of departure. ^  Some assets will not pe subject  to the deemed disposition rule. These  are assets that will continue to be  subject to Canadian tax even though  the emigrant becomes a non-resident. *  This-could include real property  situated in Canada, shares of Canadian private companies, assets  used in a Canadian business and interests in most; types of retirement  pr pension plans.  All other assets that could give  rise to capital gain or loss are deem-.  ed to be disposed of at fair market  value on emigration. A departing individual is allowed an exemption of  up to $5,000 of capital gains- ($2,500 of  taxable capital gains).  A departing resident may deal  with the Canadian departure tax in  any of three different ways. He may,  of course, pay the whole amount of  'tax on departure, or he may pay  the tax in six equal annual instalments, or he may elect to defer the  tax upon presentation of security  "acceptable to the Minister". Acceptable security, would probably  mean a government bond or other  security charged against ��� property  situated in Canada.  ease ^Jane   f/ote  OF OUR  3 Phone Numbers  SECHELT: 885-9654  or 885-2635  GIBSONS: 886-2121  THE PENINSULA TiffieS  f'1  w  . -*  WILSON CREEK, B.C.

While this event marked the end of  the winter activities, it did not mean  that the seniors were going to have a  lazy summer.

May 8 will see a two-day trip to Vicr  toria, B.C. with the Empress as the ��v?  ernight resting place. In May, with the  day yet to be set we expect to have a  visit from the seniors of Powell River.  Besides the luncheon it is hoped to stage  an exhibition of arts and crafts executed  by seniors.

The display will "be open today, from  1 to 4 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to.4 p.m.  other days.   ���  Radcliffe, who has been on the Fenin-  ' sula for three years since leaving his native Scotland, shows great strength in his  land and seascapes and uses exceptionally bright colors.  Radcliffe who came to Canada after  12 years in the merchant navy and is  now captain of a charter yacht, finds  inspiration for both his views of the sea  and the land from his trips along the  coast,, and favors local scenes.  It was in May 1967 that the Art Gallery Shop, the first activity on a continuing scale of the Sunshine Arts Council,  opened its doors and brought to the artists and craftsmen of the Peninsula a  . central outlet for their skills. Some of the  volunteer workers have been with the  shop since its opening.  SECHELT members of the Senior Swingers group of the Senior Citizens Association, Branch 69, Sechelt, brought  their wintertime activities to a close on  March 27 with practically every member present. -  Their numbers were increased by the  attendance of the Scottish Dancers from  Roberts Creek and "Gibsons area who  pleased the audience greatly with their  demonstrations of Scottish dancing and  who in turn found enjoyment in participating in our,waltzes, one-steps and other dances. �����  All hope that this will lead to more  exchanges of this type when activities  are resumed next fall At the tea break,,  Bob Foxall, called Emery and Grade  Scott to the stand to advise them that  there had been some talk of having them  charged with "Contributing to Adult Delinquency" inasmuch as Ihey had caused  many seniors to desert their easy chairs,  forget and abandon their TV sets "and cavort on the dance floor every Tuesday  afternoon in a manner not considered  normal for people who had reached an  age of dignity and' decorum. However,  as so many people had found the winter  so .greatly enlivened, had made so many  new friendships and had even found they  -were a little more limber than they had  started they had decided' on forgiveness.  Hearing that the Scotts were going  to Reno, Nev., with the seniors of Sechelt charter trip, a number had broken  into their piggy banks and gathered together a number of nickels which they  asked the, Scotts to invest in the one-  armed bandits et Reno, If they should win  a "poke" would be required to bring  back the loot.

V. Milburo,  manager of- B.C. Hydro's safety engineering department  Only last year a Lower Mainland man  was fatally injured while attempting to  free a kite from a high voltage power-  line.  "Never try to remove a kite from  a powerline, pole or transmission tower,"  said Milburn. "Only experienced linemen  have the knowledge and equipment to,  work near high voltage lines in safety.  "Even a damp cord can  act as ah  -electrical conductor if the cord brushes  a.powerline. So play safe. Better to. lose  a kite than risk very serious injury."  Each year kites cross powerlines, often  causing widespread power interruptions  and. inconvenience to the public, as well  as danger to the youngsters flying them.  B.C. Hydro urges aU parents to cut  out the following kite flyersGcode, and  impress on their children the necessity to  observe these* simple safety rules.     .  1. Fly kites only in an open field or  park, well away from powerlines, trans-,  mission towers and poles.  2. Use perfectly dry string, never wire  or. metallic string.  3. Never try to remove a kite should  it catch oh a powerline, tower or pole.  Release the cord immediately.  4. Don't use any metal in making a  kite.  5. Don't fly a kite on or near a road  or highway.  6. Never fly a kite in wet or stormy  weather.  , 7.
