But aldermen stressed they could not,  yet, commit: themselves to leasing a portion of Brothers Park for the^project.  In a heated discussion at council's Oct/  16 meeting, Winter Club spokesman Gary  M_Deyitt urged council to reach a decision quickly on what: land, if saiy, could  be; made available for a rink. .  - ^Council said it was in favor^of building a curling rink," he said, "If there is.  land available, let's have it. If ftot, we'll  go away. Don't keep us dangling."  Implying that Gibsons might Ipse the  curling.rink unless council acted quickly  in offering a site, club member,, Keith  Wright cautioned: "You'll have to be  careful what you do. Sechelt would give  us land tomorrow."  Aid. Ted Hume countered: "We're not  iri the habit of accepting threats."    y  Acting Mayor Winston Robinson explained that although the board of trustees for Brothers Pa_k had resigned re  cently, administration of the park had not   -  yet been turned over to the village from  Victoriay v  "We couldn't say 'yes' or 'no' before  (on leasing the park to the Winter Club)  laecause we were not then the official administrators, end we' can't today until y'  we deceive the turnover froln.Victoria."

Winter club ,  suppor^^  GIBSONS���Howe Sound pul^ywjEnrkers'  union has thrown its support behind  the current feasibility study into alternative sites for new secondary school facilities.  Fred Allnutt, president of local 1119,  United Paperworkers International Union,  said his executive canvassed teacher  opinion on the high school situation and  came out in support of a more thorough  investigation' of alternatives.  The general membership of the union  agreed, he said,, and a letter will be sent  to the school board '"urging them to take  everything into consideration before making a final decision."  Allnutt stressed that the union did not  recommend a specific site "because our  members, themselves, are divided."  A WINTER recreation centre   lor the  Sunshine Coast may become a reality  if H.

He envisions a centre capable of skat-  ting, hockey and curling.  -Hall, a private contractor, feels .that  such a centre can be built without raising  taxes and without direct construction  costs to the residents. It would be by  debentures and he has sharpened his pencil and determined costs of such a centre, the cost of suppling water to. make  ice sheets and he has his eye on several  tentative sites. He has talked to the Sechelt council about a site and he has  looked at sites in Gibsons.  The recreational area in Roberts Creek  has not been ruled out but Hall is leery  of it because it has been defeated twice  as a recreational site.  , Hall will place questionnaire forms  in every mailbox from Egmont to Port  Mellon asking persons to fill them out  and return them telling him how they  would like to see such a centre financed.

Les Canty, superintendent of administrative services, department of education, told the feasibility committee at its  first meeting Oct. 17 in Sechelt Elementary School, that his department is ready  to assist and advise the school board, but  that the board is in full charge so it is  up to it to determine the site. He said  that he would be pleased to work on the  committee.  He said his department has no opinion  of what should be done other than stating the board should consider other sites.  "The education department is prejudiced," Canty said. "Our prime concern is education for the young people  Involved."  Canty praised the board saying that  lt would have been moat destructive for  the whole area to hove Ignored the public  request for study.  The committee plan, under the overall chairmanship of Pat Murphy, Is to  brcojk down into subcommittees to look  into phases of development. One subcom- ���  mittee would study such services as sewers, electricity, water an the like; tho  adaptability of different altea for schools,  population growth and' disbursement,  financing would be another-.  The group would also study sites for  placement of junior secondary school- In  Gibsons, Secholt, 'Roberta Creek or other  areas.  Canty said that his department will  assist with professional help as needed.  The committee will hand over its findings to the hoard by Nov, 15. Tho group  will meet each Monday at Secholt Elementary.

Several organizations on the Sunshine Coast have been urging the ferry  authority to have an elevator installed/on/  the Queen iso that senior citizen, who'  find difficulty climbing the stairs, may be  able, to use washroom facilities!. on the  main deck. Ferry authorities, including  transport minister Robert Strachan, have  stated that it is impossible to instal an  elevator. On the Sunshine Coast Queen.  M. Fl Aldous, general manager of B.C.  Ferries,; in a letter to G. H. Duff of  Halfmoon Bay said: "None of the ships  have restrooms on the cardeck, however,  we are', making an arrangement for a  minimum washroom.facility on the Sun-1  shine Coast Queen cardeck."  -Also,, Aldous said: "The matter of  priorities for loading for residents has  been considered by the government and  has been deemed neither feasible nor desirable."  connection  GIBSONS���Village council has extended  the sewer connection deadline to Feb.  28, 1974.  Aldermen agreed on the move Oct. 10  when it was learned that plumbers were  in short supply to complete connections  before the original Dec. 15 deadline.  Homeowners must file their applications and pay the $150 connection fee  before Dec. 15, otherwise a $50 penalty  applies.  Under other business, council is to  press the department of highways for  additional warning signs in the Gospel  Rock area of Gower Point.  The decision followed receipt of a  letter from the West Gibsons Heights  Ratepayers' Association requesting council "for your aid in warning motorists of  the hazardous conditions approaching  .Gospel Rock."  Aldermen noted that this portion of  Grower Point Road was the responsibility  of the highways department, and agreed  to forward the request to them for consideration.  The association also inquired if council had any plans to widen Gower P<&nt  Road in the vicinity of Gospel Rode. ^  Municipal  clerk    Jack  Copland  explained that funds had been previously  -set _____ '".'for- theyprojwt^'/but r��6 ';act_6j_  had been1 taken. y ���/<  The'. funds will' be; brought forward  in this year's preliminary budget, he said,  and work could start shortly afterwards.  Village solicitors, Emerson and Co., informed council that the Gibsons Old Age  Pensioners Organization was not legally  entitled to enter into a lease agreement  with the village.  Council earlier gave the go-ahead for  the group to lease a portion of village-  owned land in the bay area for construction of a bowling green and meeting halL  The solicitors said, however, that the  association's parent organization, the B.C.  Old Age Pensioners Organization, could  sign a lease on behalf of the local senior  citizens.  "To this end, I should think it would  be necessary for the officers of the Gibsons and District branch No. 38 to make  a formal request to its parent organizations in that behalf," said solicitor Bruce  Emerson in a letter. "If that could be  arranged, We could then prepare the appropriate lease."  Still on the OAPO. recreation project,  aldermen were angered by reports that  the organization was "ringing" cedar trees  on the site so they would die.  Aid. Kurt Hoehne said: "This shouldn't  be allowed to go oh." He felt the trees  should be left alone until they had to be  cut down to make way for construction.  "They don't even have the land yet,"  he said, referring to the fact that no lease  for th$ property has been signed with the  village.  Acting mayor Winston Robinson opposed the current feasibility study undertaken to;, investigate alternative sites for  new secondary school accommodation.  He noted that    the  publicly-elected  school:: hoard': Had reachera^ decision" te'  rebuild Elphinstone high school in Gibsons, but was pressured into the feasibility study by parents.  "If we, as council, made a decision,  just as the school board made a decision  on Elphinstone, and a minority group  came along with an alternative, it would  be a poor thing."  Robinson said he was "not very much  in favor of a feasibility study. It just  delays  the building of a  high school"  Biologist tells council . . .  Aldous told Duff that unless a ship  is designed with an elevator it is almost/  impossible to add them, later. He said  that's why the Queen of Sidney and  Queen of Tsawwasssen do not have elevators.  Aldous also said that tourist counsellors were not used on the Howe Sound  run this year because "this is arranged  by the department of travel industry and  this past year they did not deem it advisable to have them aboard."  Aldous continued: "Magazine stands  are not included because of the shortness  of the route and the impracticability of  providing such a facility for a trip of  such short duration.  "The matter of baggage transport has  been considered on a number of occasions  and our studies have consistently shown  that there is little real hand-baggage carried on these ships and on all other routea  this facility is restricted to hand baggage.  "The matter of priorities for loading  for residents has been considered by the  government and has been deemed neither  feasible nor desirable."  New life seen for marsh  area near Porpoise Bay  SECHELT���Sechelt's marsh area at Porpoise Bay has good potential and the  village council should prepare a plan  and go after funds to preserve it as a  wildlife sanctuary.  This was the comment of R. D. Harris, wildlife biologist, Canadian WildUfe  Service, Environment Canada. He addressed council Oct. 15 at a special meeting. He and E. Nelson, also of the Canadian Wildlife Service, spent the day  with some members of council looking  over the marsh site and then he hiade  his proposal to council.  , Money for development is available  from the Second Century Fund for such  a program, Harris told council. He said  that council should determine what is  available and present a plan including  surveying and ah appraisal of the proposed site.  "I see no problem in buying the land  if it can be bought at a reasonable price,"  Harris said. He sold that his department  would assign an engineer to develop a  plan for the site. Included would be a  nature house with a tower for observing  birds and other wildlife.  He told council that it is important  to know who owns what at the marsh  area. "The little area is worth preserving," he said.  Harris said that he felt the marsh is  decreasing in size because of lack of  flushing action. He said the area had a  strong odor about it and he felt that it  must be from septic tank runoff just  settling in the area. Proper flushing action would take care of that problem, he  added.  Acting mayor Harold Nelson told Harris that a bridge used to run over the  road at that site and that allowed the  flushing action.  Aid. Ted Osborne said that sockoye  used to spawn In the area.

It was Nov. 15, 1972, almost one  year, ago, that The Times wrote its  first editorial urging the installation  of such facilities on the car deck. The  Times' editorial was prompted.by  requests of senior citizens and others.  A number of editorials and dozens  of letters from seniors finally resulted in the request being fulfilled.  It is one more instance of constant  pressure that finally caused the ferry authorities to accede to the requests. Make no mistake. Although it  was a small thing, it was a tough  fight. At one poinUransport minister  Robert Strachan told Mrs. P. Olson,  chairman of the Sunshine��Coast Regional Council of the Senior Citizens  Association of B.C., that toilet facilities are available at Langdale and  Horseshoe Bay and he believed those  services were suitable.  . With the installation of car-deck  toilets we can now use that famous  quote: "One small step for man  >>  Another disclosures bill  AT THE spring session of the British  Columbia legislature, the NDP  government created a mild furore  throughout the province with its proposed Public Officials Disclosure Act.  Bill 132, introduced by Attorney:  General Alex Macdonald, if enacted,  would have required all publicly elected officials, senior municipal aides  and their families, to state their  financial status. .'���"'������ y.  Several aldermen in B.C*, including Bernel Gordon, a member of the  Sechelt village council, resigned in  protest. Subsequently the act was  called back and did not become law.  The government said that it wanted  to take another look at it.  i Now, Hugh A. Curtis, MLA, Saanich and the Islands, has introduced  his version of the Public Officials  Disclosure Act. Curtis is not a minister or even a government backbencher but one of the two Conservative members of the legislature and  he is also mayor of the district of  Saanich and a former president of  the Union of B.C. Municipalities. His  proposal, introduced as/ a private  member's bill, has some major differences. ,  The government's hill which was  introduced last spring required the  complete disclosure of the financial  status of a public official, his spouse  and their children who have not attained the age of majority. The bill  would have included not only elected  officials but also any senior government official, whether elected or not,  who was so designated by order-in-  council, and their families.  Bill 132 was all-inclusive. It left  nothing to chance and, in fact, put"  a shade Of doubt on all elected officials from the top right   on down  ..'���(-.    ���.";���','���   '       '������'..

But Bill 132 was too  tough. That's why we tend to favor  Curtis' Bill 37. -.      '  Bill 37 includes elected officials  and their families only if they are  affected in a certain procedure:  "Where a public official or his family  has, after the date of his last written  disclosure, acquired any interest respecting a matter that is being considered by the assembly, council or  board to which he is elected, the public official shall, before he speaks to,  or votes on the matter, orally disclose the interest to the assembly,  council: or board."  An official, before voting on a matter in which he has a personal financial interest, direc. or indirect, shall  disclose to the body of which he is  an official that such interest exists,  and shall absent himself from such  vote, states Curtis' Bill 37.  The bill also states that officials  shall accept no gifts from persons^  firms, corporations or organizations  having an interest in any matter before the board; 'the official must not  use his position for personal gain and  shall accept no honorarium for a  speech, writing for publication or  other similar activities, from any  person, firm, corporation or organization in excess of the usual and  customary value for such services.  The official must keep his campaign funds separate from his personal funds and shall convert no  campaign funds to personal use.  , v-.MaPy highly qualified persons  simply would not run for public office  if the government Bill 132 were to  have become law.  ���The less stringent Curtis bill  should help to keep elected officials  honest without prying deeply into  their private lives.  It has stingers in it and states  that any person refusing to comply  with disclosure sections is liable to  a fine of not more than $10,000 or  to imprisonment for a term of not  more than six months or both.  And it states that it is a defence  to a charge under the act to show  that the public official complied with  the act to the best of his knowledge  and belief.  We'll see how it weathers the legislative storm.  VOLVO CARS & STATION WAGONS  INTERNATIONAL   TRUCKS   AND  RECREATIONAL  VEHICLES  PHONE:    278-6291  C..   (L.

A  nom-de-plume may be used for publication, but all originals must be signed by the, writer.  Sechelt faces discrimination  it water rates are hiked  Editor, The Times, *  Sir: In the Oct. 10 issue of The Times,  Dick Proctor quotes Director West as  saying that an increase of 20 to 30 per  cent in water rates is almost inevitable  as the district is still working on a 1968  rate structure.  Mr. West evidently has a very short  memory. On Nov. 23, 1968, Area C voted  in favor of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District's letters patent being expended  to include the supply and distribution of  water as a function. I might mention  that this vote was open to evferyone on  the voter's list in Area C regardless of  whether they were on the then existing  water system or not. The gross cost of  water to be $57 per year, a jump of apr  proximately 35 per cent over the Sechelt  Waterworks rate.  Oh Jan. 29, 1971 the regional board  adopted bylaw 50 amending bylaw 37  and setting the gross rates for Area C at  $79���a jump of approximately 40 per cent  over the rates originally established and  75 per cent more than the Sechelt Waterworks rate. I might mention that Area E  where Mr. West is director, the original  rate set was $75 a year and amended"  bylaw 37 raised this rate to $79 or approximately five per cent as compared  to 40 per cent for zone C.  At a recent regional board meeting I  understand that Director West said that  due to the high cost of putting in mains  to service new subdivisions and upgrading old mains, the water system was non-  liquidating and the rates would have tc  be raised. He was understood to say that  a new rate structure would have to be  established based'on the expense to the  water system in each district. Good thinking, director Area E is a very small zone  with new water mains and not much  room for expansion then gets no increase  or at best a minimum increase in water  rate. Area C, on the other hand, with all  the old wood stave pipes, a relic of Sechelt Waterworks, the new intake, the  reservoir, etc. etc., an increase of 30 per  cent? This is an election year in Area  E you know.  I would like to give you a short history  of the Sunshine Coast Regional District  water authority as I see it. Back in the  days when Jack Davis was our MP the  federal government budgeted a large sum  of money to bo distributed by ARDA-  Jack decided that some of this money  should be spent in his constituency so  a group in the Sunshine Const wag formed  to think up ways and means of getting  /  SEE THE NEW  # PLASTIC PROPELLORS  GUARANTEED FOR 1  YEAR  DO IT YOURSELF ,  ��� MERCURY WINTER STORAGE KITS  ��� BILGE CLEANER ��� ANTI-CORROSIVE GREASE -1  FLUSHING KITS  Sechelt Chain Saw Centre  COWRIE! STREET        ��� PHONE 88S-9626  money under ARDA. They decided to apply for money to put in a water system  running between Gibsons and Sechelt.  Unfortunately their request waa turned  down by Ottawa. I believe the reason  waa that tho small population did not  warrant such a. large expenditure.  Shortly after this, Dan Campbell, then  minister of municipal affairs came up  with the Idea of dividing B.C., up into  regional district!, ond so the Sunshine  Coast Regional District was formed and  Campbell, seeing a group of citizens in-  teroHted in the future welfare of the  Sunshine Coast, appointed the directors  for the new regional district from this  AltDA executive. Thin ARDA group were  dedicated to putting In a water iiyntcm  ond now us the hoard of the Sunshine  Count Regional District, nnd with more or  less unlimited power, lout, no time .In  acquiring the function of supply and dln-  Irlbutlon of water regard)enN of tho fact  that thoy had been told that the small  population did not warrant .mch a largo  expenditure.  The only reasonable; source of water  wa;i the Sechelt Waterworks which tho  regional hoard set out lo buy, ifor, I understand, $(10,000, but being in on \\n~  explainable rush (could it be Itchy -fingers) they arranged to borrow a million  or so dollars and gave out approximately  a quarter of a million dollars In contracts.  in Jay mains etc. before the source of  Water was acquired. Union Steamship,.,  owners of Sechelt Watcrw/orl^p, being nn-  tuto businessmen, decided ��'no. to sell  leaving the regional bo/ird |up the pro  verbial - creek with no water to out in  their ^nains.  The regional board tried to expropriate ended in an expensive law battle. The  regional board eventually acquired Sechelt Waterworks but at a much greater  cost than they had anticipated. I have'  heard figures running from $160,000 to  $200,000. Perhaps Mr. West could enlighten us on the gross cost of acquiring  Sechelt Waterworks. The regional board  was also negotiating to buy the Davis Bay  waterworks and I understand the deal  was not completed until after .Sechelt  Waterworks was finalized and at a figure that to my knowledge has never been'  made public. Could it be that the price  paid for the Davis Bay waterworks was  contingent on the price paid for the Sechelt waterworks? If this is true then the  regional board paid inflated prices for.  two, not one, water systems. y. -; ���  The regional board finally gets into  the water business and find they have  only 855 water users instead of the 2,000  odd that they had budgeted for. This  worked out Sechelt 316, Davis Bay, 140,  leaving a surprisingly low figure of 400  new users at a cost ,of around $1 million  or $2,500 for -each new connection which  would amortize at over $200 a year for  each new user plus the cost of administration.  This figure is not exorbitant when you  consider that they received not only  water but also got around a 70 to.75 cents  for $100 decrease in their fire insurance  premiums, a several hundred per cent  increase in the value of their land plus  the fact that they now could subdivide  their land into twice as many building  lots���18,000 square feet per lot without  water, 7,500 square feet if on a water  system.  Did the regional board come up with  a just water rate? Oh, no! They put in a  one-rate system for the new and the  old water systems. Sechelt and Selma  Park getting hooked with a 75 per cent  increase in water rates and Areas D and  E getting water for below, cost plus other  amenities. Now we hear noises from Director West sounding very much as if  Sechelt and Selma Park are in for further discrimination.  RR #1, Sechelt h. A.

Public health nurse Susan Friz  zell conducts test, which assesses  a child's development in relation to  others of his age. Parents   attend  test, but are encouraged to 'take a  back seat.' Looking on is Victor's  mother, Evelyn Neufeld.  PARENTS are pressing strongly for. ah  expansion of the Sechelt Elementary  School band program.  In a brief jubmitted to the school  board at their last meeting, parents urged,  trustees to hire an additional teacher,  freeing present band instructor Weldori  Epp for full-time music tuition. x  Explaining the problems faced in the  band program, Epp told the meeting that  36 pupils were involved in the program  _ait the end of last year.  "This year, we have expanded it to  60 students. This effectively means that  students only get half the amount of  tuition."       ' :  He labelled the present band program  as "unsatisfactory. It's not fair-to the children to expect them to miss their noon  hour break or stay after school for music  instruction." . o ;  Epp felt, he could not carry, on the  -band program satisfactorily while he was '  f completing a full course of academic tuition, also.  I'd prefer to teach only music and  band," he said,  In urging the school board to hire  a teacher to relieve Epp, the parents  charged that trustees had "committeed in  the first successful year and the greatly  increased enrolment in the second year.  ."_.. The board was far sighted enough  to involve themselves in the commencement of a band program, but where is  the planning that would have achieved  its continued success?"  Malcolm MacTavish, principal of Roberts Creek Elementary School, urged trustees to contribute to the "cultural balance" of the area by expanding the band  program.  "The time has got to be made the  people found to look into this," he said.  "Stop pussyfooting around and get on  with the job."  In their brief, the parents suggested  formation of a band committee comprising band instructors, principals, the district superintendent and a parent representative.  Superintendent Roland Hanna said he  was pleased to see the progress that had  been made in the field of music.     .  But "parents should realize that there  'is a certain amount of time allocated  for music. If we gave more time for  music, something else would suffer. The  principal of the school and I have to  weigh up the priorities."  He noted that, at the elementary level,  _$M... uijjpn_ .was,,.generally, extra .curri-  cuTar.'"

Local program successful > . .  Children's development  assessed in Denver test  PARENTS concerned about the development of their children are urged to ���  participate in the Denver Developmental  Screening Test, a  program now underway at the Gibsons health centre.  The test is designed to assess a child's  development in relation to 'average" children of his age.  In the  15 to 30  minute  assessment,  PATTERN OF THE WEEK:  THE KING  "Basic Sweater Wheel"  development of muscles, use of words and  language and the child's ability to care  for himself are tested.  Results are confidential and become  part of the child's health record.  Public health nurse, Susan Frizzell,  explained that the test pinpoints areas in  which the child is lagging."  "Once we recognize these areas, the  child can bo helped along, preventing  great problems later.  "If there are any .significant lags in  his development, we refer the child to a  doctor who is familiar with the test. He  then examines the child and refers him  elsewhere if necessary."  The program has been in operation at  the health centre for about a year, Mrs.  Frizzpll noted, and "I feel it has been vet;"  successful. It began quietly, but we he  to expand it to include many more chi.  dren."  According to literature on the test,  which was developed in Denver, Colo.,  several years ago: "The test is fun. Such  items as a ball, a bell and blocks are  used. Most children and parents find it  an enjoyable experience as they look a!  all the things the child is able to do."  Vacancies are open in the program on  the first and third Thursday of each  month between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.  Parents should make application to  the   Gibsons   health   centre   at  806-222-.

Goulding drove past the scene, although signalled to stop by police, and  hit the*side of another vehicle, said the  prosecutor.  The police car gave chase, after hitting the damage vehicle, itself, and apprehended Goulding farther along the  highway.  A subsequent breathalyzer test showed that accused had a blood-alcohol level  of .20. The legal maximum is .08.  Goulding claimed he was not aware  that he had hit a vehicle.

But in predicting an early start, he  cautioned that a great deal of planning  would be necessary before improvements  could go aheadr^       ���  Said Copland: "Council will have to  decide whether to upgrade the entire  system at once or concentrate on high  priority areas first. Upgrading the whole  syst^,::i^ld*jco^t up ^^O^MVV v ���   ^ .  He noted that village council and  the regional district were negotiating a  cost-sharing, agreement for certain areas  of their water systems, ahd this could  influence any final decision on upgrading  the village lines.  "We can't really tie down a starting  date, yet," he said, "because there are  too n^any indefinities."  Fire committee chairman Kurt Hoehne  favors completing the upgrading project  in one fell swoop.  He suggested to council's Oct. 16 meeting that the village should borrow the  $280,000 required for the project and repay the loan through increased water  rates.  If upgrading work was accomplished  piece by piece, financed solely by increased water rates, the project would  take over ten years to complete, he  pointed out.  Hoehne felt that the present water  system provided an insufficient supply  to satisfy the needs of proposed extensions and the new sewage treatment plant.  "We need more water," he said. "Wc  will have to come together with the regional district and look into a long-range  water project."  Acting mayor Winston Robinson reported that the regional district water  committee had approached council on the  possibility of opening the Chaster Road  well and pumping the water to a reservoir for distribution.  Cost of this project was estimated at  $195,000 five years ago, when the village  considered undertaking the scheme alone.  Although costs have risen, Robinson  said, they would now be shared by the  regional district.  He predicted that the village would  eventually buy bulk watter from the  regional district.  Hoehne emphasized the need for prompt action to upgrade the existing water  system.  "The water committee agreed lhat wc  should start the upgrading right now, an  fast as the work crew can handle it,  ond work out the finances for tho rest  of it."

Recommending the move, Hoehne noted that: "In bad weather, we always have  trouble with snow and we have to rent  equipment.'   .  While he was in Golden, Jones constructed a successful sander from the rear  end.��_ a car, the alderman said.       '"���'"  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade Committee is  almost $1,700 in the red.  In a financial statement submitted to  council, the festival organizers said they  had a bank balance of $84.60, but bills  totalling $1,751.83 were still outstanding.  A fund-raising raffle is slated to clear  up outstanding debts.  This year's festival is expected to be  the last organized by the committee, aldermen were informed. Local service  clubs are being approached to take over  the project.  Upgrading of Gower Point Road between the Shell station and Winn Road  came one step nearer reality when council agreed to approach the department of  highways on cost-sharing rin the project.  Aldermen stressed the need for speedy  action, since costs are rising every year.  SECHELT���Dire-tors    of the   Sunshine  Coast Senior Citizens' Housing Society, were hosts at' a smorgasbord dinner  Oct. 13 at the Casa Martinez in honor of  Ben Firth and NOrman Btirley, two  former directors of the society.  President Frode Jorgensen, in presenting them with certificates of life membership, said these were the first life  memberships awarded by the society and  they were in recognition of six years'  faithful service as directors of the society.  Firth had carried out the onerous and  demanding duties as treasurer and Burley  had done a Wonderful job as chairman of  the building committee and had proved  a generous and hard working member of  the board, Jorgensen noted.  Burley, expressing thanks on behalf  "of Firth and himself, recalled some of the  problems which had arisen in the early  days of the formation of the. society and  the building of the first 10 units.      v  Jorgensen paid tribute to some of the  men and women who had faithfully  served the society. Three . members, of  the founding committee who had died  were Canon Alan Greene, first president,  Laurits P. Hansen and Harry A. Hill.  ;  He would like, he said, to mention two  other directors who had given generously  and conscientiously of their time���Mrs.  Ohye McGregor, whose death in April  1971 was a great loss to the society and  Eric Rosen who had died as a result of  a traffic accident in July 1969.

Director Thores optimistic > . .  Bright future seen  for our health unit  DR. ALISTAIR Thores, recently-appointed director of the C o a s t Garibaldi  Health Unit, foresees a promising future  for local health units,  y  But he feels the general public should  be brought up to date on the many and  varied programs undertaken by the organizations.;  Before his appointment to the Coast  Garibaldi unit, Thores was director of  the Skeena Arm and counts five years  experience in health board administration. :   ..-'.������  A Powell River resident, he is married and has one son.      -  "I feel we are in a very interesting  period in the development of public  health," he told The Times. "We have  made great progress in our basic aim  of preventing illness. '  "We are operating various programs  by co-operating with other health and  welfare agencies and voluntary agencies."  Thores noted that health units operate on two tiers.  "We try to help people by encouraging them to take an interest in health,  and, at the second-tier level, we enforce  regulations."  Three groups of staff are employed by  the local unit, he said, citing public health  nurses, public health inspectors and clerical staff.  "Volunteers, also, play a valuable part  in our programs. Many Vopk with chil-  _ren, for instance."  The director pointed out that the role  of the public health nurse extends far  beyond their traditional image as school  nurses.  "They are involved in the community  with many programs, including parent  counselling, mental health guidance and  even menu planning," he said. *  Public health services have proved  "extremely successful in many areas,''  Thores felt. "But our staff is thin on the  ground, considering the large area we  serve. ���  "It is almost certain there will never  be enough money or staff to do everything wc would like to do, so we have  to establish priorities."  The health unit chief felt, however,  that services are likely to be expanded  soon by hiring more staff in key areas.  "I would like to see us. have a public  henlth nutritionist to provide support for  our nurses and to help service the schools  by providing nutrition guidance."  Ho also cited ns desirable a physiotherapist, speech therapist ond n consutling  engineering service.  "We will have some assistance in these  areas from Victoria because it involves  a sizeably increased committment and additional, funds." ;  Members of the public must. take, a  greater interest 'in their healthy Thores  -felt:' y      . .. ���.. ' y'.o.  "People, themselves, must.accept responsibility for their own health," he said.  "Community participation in the Work of  the health unit is valuable and we welcome assistance in setting up programs  at the local level." .y-'  '  Summing up the goals of the health  unit, Thores said:', "All our efforts are  directed to insuring that the best public  interest is served, whether by protection  pf ths environment, restaurant inspections or providing adequate follow-up for  patients who have been discharged from  hospital."  Increasing growth arid deyelopmehtori'���  the Peninsula are creating new problems  for the unit, "but it also affords an opportunity to provide a more comprehensive service."       v  Pinpointing the large area covered by  the local health unit, Thores said that  the Coast Garibaldi region extends from  north of Powell River to the Pemberton  area, including the Sechelt Peninsula,  Gibsons  and Whistler.  "As director of the unit, I have to do a  lot of travelling," ihe said. "Two months  ago, I bought a new car. Now, it has 3,000  miles on the clock." ;     v ; ',��� ���  His personal workload is also great,  the director noted. "I plevolve a lot of  responsibility, but I still have to take  final responsibility.  "One of my greatest regrets is that  I can't deal with everyone in the health  unit on an individual basis."  Thores said he would like people to  be made more award of the value of  their health unit.  "We do much more than just immunization," he stressed.  For any health unit to be totally efficient, community participation is essential, he said.  "We are living in a more sophisticated  society, so wehave to operate on a team  basis. We are trying to draw people together to work for the good of everyone."  For Thores, one of the greatest satisfactions of his job is "knowing that, in  the Jong term, I'm on the winning sid-i"  Squaringly yoars  i     - _. ��� -      - ���     ������ -_-__. ���������  -���i  -  ���by Maurice HemstxMt  HELLO, fellow square dancers.

Among the speakers was t)r. Martin  Lewis, director of the McGill Cancer Re-,  search Institute who suggested that "sterilizing" the bloodstream of cancer patients might save lives. He felt this could  be done by keeping the blood-stream  , clear of breakaway cells that sometimes  escape through blood vessel walls to start  tumors elsewhere.  A mechanism in the bloodstream apparently "mops up" circulating tumor  sells by means of circulating antibodies  and Dr. Lewis has found high levels of  such antibodies in patients whose disease  h*is not spread. The mechanism may work  effectively for years but when it fails,  tumor cells' can escape to produce other  tumors.  Dr. Lev/is is investigating the reasons  for this failure. He found that antibody  levels drop in patients whose disease is ,  progressing to other,'sites, possibly because J;he,;body. -.produces , $ substance  which blocks the antibody. I  If doctors can find a way to prevent  this block -in cancer patients and if antibody levels against tumors can be maintained at a high level, "it could cleanse  the bloodstream of tumor cells."

Depending on the outcome of other  league gumes, the match may have decided first place in the division.  The Chiefs now havo three wins and  two ties after dropping the season opener  to n powerful Dartsmen team, 3-1. They  came back strongly to defeat Gcrmanla,  4-1, Finlnndla, 5-1, Air Canada, 3-2 and  tied Pacific 0(1, 2-2 with n *goal in tho  last three minutes of play.  In Saturday'^ game Tony Paul and  Tom Paul each Hpored a goal. Next week  the Chiefs head to Burnaby for provincial  cup plrty. The locals will face Sapperton  Labotts. The following Saturday Chiefs  will host league-leading North Shore  Canilnnos.  This year the three major soccer leagues  amalgamated   to  form  one  league  on the Vancouver mainland. A combination of the Pacific Coast League, the Inter-city League and the Mainland Senior  Soccer League now make up the 10 and  12 team senior divisions,  As in the past, the top two teams in  a division will be promoted to a higher  division, while the two lowest teams will  be relegated to the lower division.  The Chiefs schedule alternates between Vancouver and their home field  on the reserve. Every other Saturday  they play a home game starting at 2 p.m.  With a much stronger team than past  years, the Sechelt Chiefs should be in a  position for promotion to a higher division. The team currently is boasting the  B.C. Soccer Leaguers top goal scorer Ted  Joe who leads the entire seyen divisions  with eight goals in five games. Included  in the eight are two hatricks which is ajso  tops in the league. Kirby Jackson has  hit for three goals for the locals, while  Alec Jackson and Tony Paul round out  the other Sechelt goal scorers.  _��JMWMM����lM����*U_��__JM_U����UW����_��nn__i_UVM��������l����#W����*������  TOTEM {CLUB  BINGO  FRIDAYS, 8:00 p.m.  I INDIAN HALL  jackpot $3p0" ^  #��76 TO *_0        , \  M*NM  it DOOR PRIZE: ik  i .  m brewed in, British Columbia  (.'arlsbe rj' has |ont�� been tin- world's most exported l..i}��er beer.

They came in a magnificent  flotilla of 50 canoes arranged in the shape  of a horseshoe, each one decorated with  flags, ribbons and torches of all colors.  Four large canoes, a little ahead of the  horseshoe, led the flotilla. One was manned by young braves dressed in blue; another with the men dressed in fed; the  third canoe carried the Indian band which  played all the way across the water. The  last canoe, in the middle of which was a  throne-like seat for the bishop, was manned entirely;by chiefs and sub-chiefs. The  moment the bishop stfepped into the canoe a volley of cannon fire came from the  Indian Mission across the water, and the  band played a fanfare of welcome. The  cannon volleys were sounded off every  five minutes as the flotilla returned to  North Vancouver. And, as was their custom, the Indians sang their Canoe Song  of welcome to the bishop."  The parent stock of the accacia trees  which blossom fragrantly in Sechelt each  summer came from Father Fay's old garden beside Vancouver's present Holy Bo-  sary Cathedral. One such clump of trees  can be observed just off the northeast  corner of the Cowrie Street and Trail  Avenue intersection.  The third Sechelt Indian Church, the  most imposing of all the five edifices on  the site, was described by Father A. G.  Morice in his History of the Catholic  Church in Western Canada as follows:  "The crowning glory of the model village was a church 80 feet by 28, with a  facade 48 feet; wide and two beautiful  towers. Comroenced October 26, 1889, the  building was ready for dedication by the  3rd of June of the following year. With  the exception of a -white man to direct  the work, the construction was the result  of the exertions of the Indians themselves, who moreover defrayed all. the expenses it entailed, over $3,000."  Father Morice reported that more than  EDITOR'S NOTE: Sechelt historian and.  writer Helen Dawe has compiled the  history of the five churches serving the  Sechelt Nation and The Times will run  the articles in a three-part series..The  history was written with the approval  of Clarence Joe, band manager of the  Sechelt council, and/with church authorities. Miss Dawe has entitled her work  Five Churches, Five Chiefs and 105  years. The series was written to mark  the dedication of the fifth church on the  same site in 105 years. It is expected the  latest church will be dedicated soon. This  is part two.  by Helen Dawe  THE second Indian Roman Catholic cha-  ple at Sechelt is reported to have  been underway by August 1872 because  already the original 1968 building had become too small for the congregation. The  new structure measured 15 metres long  by seven metres wide. One metre translates into 39.37 inches, so the dimensions  were 49 feet by 23 fet.  This chapel at Chat-Ledge or Seachelle  (as then identified) was named in the  French language St. Redempteur, or  Church of the Holy Redeemer. It was  subsidiary to the Mission of St. Charles  on the Fraser at New Westminster. The  second Sechelt church was blessed by Father Durieu just a century ago; on April  15, 1873. A small register in the Archives  Deschatelets in Ottawa mentions the cemetery at Sechelt on the same date.   ..  There is a oontemporary sketch on  file in Victoria showing the second  church. On July 17, 1875 John Scales applied to purchase acreage adjoining DL  303, later designated DL 304. The two  lots were surveyed by William S. Jem-  mett commencing July 21, 1875. Mr. Jem-  mett's drawings included in his field  notes indicates a building with the identification Sechelt Village RC Church. Mr.  Doug Roy, BCLS in 1973 found a bearing  tree from this 1875 survey and he has the  marking preserved for safekeeping.  One of the lines surveyed by Mr.! Jem-  mett subsequenly became the westerly  border of Sechelt Reserve No. 2, the main  Reserve. The first survey of the reserve  as such was not made until 1881, when  Mr. E. Mohun carried out the work,  though likely the area had been recognized as a reserve prior to John Scales'  application.  Father Jean-Marie Le Jeune came to  B.C. in 1879 and trained for two years  under  Bishop   Durieu,  working   among  the Sechelt and the Stale Indians, the  latter living in the Fraser Valley area.

News-Advertiser, a Vancouver paper,'ran a'story1  entitled The Sedhelt Festival This report-  doubled the cost of building the church  and read in part as follows:  "Yesterday morning    the dedicatory  services in connection    with    the - new  Roman Catholic Mission Church on Se-1  chelt Island    (sic) took ' place. Shortly ���  before 10 o'clock the procession through ���  the village, in which over two thousand ���  natives marched, took place. The church  is a very handsome structure, costing over  $6,000, and the natives.are very proud  of it. The interior furnishings are very  elaborate and handsome.  On the walls;  are pictures of great events in church .,   history, and the altar and chancer- are'   paddlewheel steamer, 282 ft. 3 in "long.  it cannot be used for the regular religious services as not a, quarter of the number at present in the village can find  accommodation. For this reason a large  tent in which a temporary altar is placed,  has been erected along side. The architect of the new church is Mr. A. Boulton  (sic) and the Indians themselves did the  work of construction .under his supervision. . - . -  "For the present celebration arrangements have been going op for many  weeks, and from the interior and all parts  of the coast and Vancouver Island the  natives have been gathering to take part  in this religious festival. Preparations on  an elaborate scale have been made for  the proper celebration of the event. A  large number of native bands have gathered and fireworks have been provided in  abundance. For the convenience of those  coming from the interior arrangements  were made with the C.P.R, for reduced  rates and for the week of the festival  the Yosemite has been chartered by the  Bishop to run from Vancouver."  The Yosemite was an interesting old  tastefully normented. The whole room  evinces the work and attention of pious  hands, skilful in ornamentation. The  building is capable of holding 450 without crowding. For this occasion, of course,  She had been constructed for the Sacramento River trade in the early 1860s.  In October 1965 her boilers exploded,  killing 55 people and wounding many  more. After being overhauled, lengthened  and also served  Vancouver. There wasy  of course, no wharf at Sechelt when the  Yosemite Called in 1890, so visitors would  'have come ashore in small boats.  Probably *ho member of the Sechelt  Band can remember the dedication sery-  .ices in 1890 because the three elders of  the village, Mrs. Jennie Erickson, Mrs;  Cecelia August and Mr. David Paul were  all born in 1894. v  The 1890 gathering at Sechelt was sadly interrupted by the death of Bishop  D'Herbomez on June 3rd. Bishop Durieu,-  'all the Indian chiefs and dignitaries, many|  of the oblates and three Indian brass'  bands journeyed from Sechelt to New  Westminster to participate in the funeral  service. Interment was at St. Mary's Mission on June 6th.-After the burial the  religious celebrations at Sechelt were re-  . sumed. The Daily News-Advertiser on  June 10, 1890 carried the following 2%  inch square advertisement:  "Grand function." Opening of Sechelt  church. The Church on Sechelt Indian  Reserve will be opened with imposing  ceremonies on Tuesday, June 10th. The  steamer Yosemite will make a trip on  Tuesday, June 10th.

By the early 1890s the Sechelt Indians  were such accomplished carpenters that  they sent men to New Westminster to,  build a seminary for young boys studyr  ing for the priesthood. The Sechelt craftsmen worked under the supervision of a  Frenchman, Mr. Bouillon. One wonders  if the Mr. A. Boulton whom the News-  Advertiser'specified as the architect of  ported. Mrs.i Ada Dawe remembers that i  during the first decade of the 20th, century tjie name Bouillon Creek was applied to the stream now known as Wake,-y ��  ������field Creek. This seems to indicate that  Mr. ��� Bouillon lived iri West $echelt ear-:  iier. At the time the New Westminster  seminary, was blessed by Bishop. Durieu  the Sechelt band under the baton ot  Frank Isidore participated in the ceremonies and the 24 bandsmen were photographed standing on the steps of the city  building.    ,, ��� ���:  Bishop Durieu called |upon the mother  house of the Sisters of the Child Jesus  in Le Puy, France; before the turn of  the century to request that the order  - help him in his missionairy work in B.C.  In the autumn of 1903 Sister, Theresine  was among a group of nuns who came  out to serve at the Sechelt residential  school, which was planned, financed and  built by the Indian people and opened  in 1904. She was soon appointed superior  of the school and later became head of  the congregation of her order. Mother  Theresine and her co-workers had a convent chapel but worshiped also in the  Indian church.  . Father Pierre Plamondonr'OMI,; was  resident priest "at Sechelt when on January 14th 1906 disaster struck and.the 16  year-old church burned to the ground.  Although as early as the 1890s, the progressive Sechelt Nation had brought  water down from the hills in. an open  JEiume to pipes laid on the reserve, the  facility was not adequate to fight :fire in  the tall church towers;. A fund to rebuild  was sponsored at once.  (To Be Continued)  while the so-called white settlers used not  only English spoken in a variety of accents, but other European languages as  well.

Her daughter has  Mrs. Paull's Certificate of Baptism, -bowing that the ceremony was performed on  the 20th day of June, 1886 by Father E.  Paytavin.

In 1890 Mr.  Frank Isidore was bandmaster of the Sechelt group, which provided1 music not-  only for the blessing of the new church  at home but as well for Roman Catholic  occasioris in other areas. When a great  Passion Play was produced in tableaux at  Chilliwack before 2,000 Indians, Father  Cherouse drew the performers from the  Sechelt people because he considered  "these were his most intelligent tribe."  Five chiefs on behalf of their respective coastal communities made a joint  effort to plan the twin-spired church.

"Also, we don't know how much  -   water a curling rink uses."  He pointed out that council had recently denied water to a church in the  area because of the difficulty of installing a new line and providing adequate  pressure.  Wright noted that the-curling rink  would be used only in the winter and .  "there's plenty of water then."  Hume pointed out that council would  still have the expense of putting in the  water line.  Robinson said: "Personally, I would  like to see a curling rink on Brothers  Park. It would be an ideal site."  McDevitt asked if council would consider leasing the club part of its 40-acre  parcel abutting Shaw Road if the Brothers Park site proved impractical.  "Or do you intend subdividing and  selling the lots?"  Hume felt: "We're split."  Robinson said: "We'll endeavor to  make land available to the curling club.  We haven't looked at other land yet because we thought we could have Brothers Park."  McDevitt emphasized the need for a  speedy decision from council because his  club was applying for funds from the  provincial government and the Local Initiatives Program to start construction of ���  the rink.  The Winter Club would have to submit a legal description of the proposed  site in their applications, he noted.  Said Aid; Kurt Hoehne: "If Brothers  J>ark is not available, we'll make other  "land available. But it would be nice to  have all our recreational facilities together (in Brothers Park)."        ���  McDevitt said the Winter Club hoped  to raise almost $80,000 towards the cost  of the rink through provincial and LIP  grants.  "This leaves only $30,000 to $40,000  to be raised locally."  He explained that between 50 and 60  people had already signed up to buy debentures in the project.  Hoehne, a proponent of the Winter  Club scheme, said that the curling rink  would make a small profit. "It will not  be burden on the taxpayers."  . He assured the Winter Club representatives that council was well-aware of  ' the time involved, and would come to a  decision as quickly as possible.  Aldermen agreed to investigate whether their covenant with the trustees  allowed them to lease part of Brothers  Park to the Winter Club.  McDevitt, in turn, said he would find  out how much water is required by a  curling rink.

This rejection was a major cause of the  great apostacy (or falling away) which  occured during the first and second generation., after the Savior's crucifixion.  Christ and his apostles knew that this  rejection of their niessage would result  in the loss of truth/from the earth, "For  the time will come when they will not  endure sound doctrine; but after their  own lusts shall they heap to themselves  teachers, having itching ears; and they  shall turn away their ears from the truth,  and shall be turned into fables." (2 Timothy 4: 3-4).    ", ..���������':���/.   :  The people not only rejected the truth,  they rejected and persecuted those who  taught it. One by one. the apostles who  held the the priesthood of God,. were  killed. The result of the apostacy was  the loss to men of much of the pure doctrine taught by Christ, and the loss of  his authority to perform the saving ordinances of the gospel.  Apostle Paul predicted the apostacy.  Answering the people who were troubled about the time of the second coming  of Christ, he wrote: "Let no man deceive  you by any meank; for that day shall not  come, except there come a felling away-  first, and that man of sin be revealed, the  son of perdition."

'  A synopsis of the bill prepared by  King's department says the code "looks to  solutions rather than sanctions. It has  expanded collective rights but protected  individual rights. It endorses free collective bargaining but legislates in the  public interest"  In essence, the code increases the size  of the Labour Relations Board to 10  members, from eight previously, and giv��s  it expanded powers to deal with problems such as the law of strikes, and picketing. It removes the jurisdiction of courts  to give injunctions.        ���  "The Labour Code strikes a balance  . between the economic powers of labour  and management by restricting the right  to picket but expanding the right to communicate information by other ���? means,"  the synopsis said.  - The persons appointed so iar-to the  new Labour Relations Board include:  Chairman Paul C.

(2 Timothy 3:7).  Because the spirit and power of God  had been withdrawn from among men,  they were left to interpret the word of  God by reason alone. No wonder the pure  and simple truths were distorted, misinterpreted, and replaced with the uninspired teachings of men.  That was the situation 4n the world  in 1820. A church could not befound conforming with the church established by  Jesus Christ when he was on earth. Such  a church would be founded on apostles  and prophets, Jesus Christ being the  chief cornerstone.  By revelation from the Lord, Joseph  Smith restored the Church of Jesus  Christ, with the same organization and  teachings that existed, in the original  church, which were lost to the world after the death of Jesus Christ and his an-  ostles. *  ST.

GAS   EXPORT   CONTROL  Attorney-General Alex Macdonald,  responsible for B.C.'s Energy Act, has  asked federal Energy Minl.._er Donald  Macdonald to control exports of natural  gaa to the U.S. in an effort to lessen the  effect of a natural gas shortage -that  could effect B.C. consumers as early as  October 15. .-'���'���  The Attorney-General told the legislature that the shortage predicted about  three: weeks ago could result in production losses to ��� B.C. industries of about  $20 million and more than 250,000 man-  /lays.  Macdonald said he told the federal  minister that B.C. customers of B.C.-  "produced natural gas should not suffer  from any shortage to the same extent as  American customers because the U.S.  custodiers will be able to make up for a  shortage by using  Texas-produced gas.  AID FOR FARMERS  Agriculture, Minister David Stupich  introduced his second major farm bill  Thursday, the Agricultural Credit Act,  which will enable the government to lend  a farmer up to $100,000 or guarantee his  bank loans.  British Columbia is the only Canadian  province without such ;a plan, Stupich  said.  He said $5 million will be set aside  to cover direct government loans, and  the government would guarantee $5 million of bank loans taken out before  March 31.  Interest rates will be determined by  regulation once the legislation is passed,  he said. '  ::<A:::^'Thjs.; a^^;^progra^^ll...,h<j��t; only  iieip the^current-.needs' of farmers but also  will help them redirect agricultural development," he said.  As an example, Stupich cited Peace  River farmers who have previously been  unable to switch from grain production to  livestock because they lacked the necessary capital.  MORE fatal traffic accidents occur during  the hours of darkness���especially, during the evening rush hours���than occur  during the daylight hours. This is a particularly sobering fact for motorists to  keep in mind during fall and winter when  the hours of daylight are shorter.  Darkness calls for a special type of  driving. The most important requirements  are increased, alertness, better control of  the car, and reduction of speed.  The following are further suggestions  to remember:  ���Pull into traffic more cautiously than  in daytime. Not only do you see less  at night, but other drivers have more  difficulty seeing you.  ���Pass with extra care. Be sure you  have enough passing room. Remember,  you can't see as far ahead at night.  ���Never trust your judgment in estimating the speed of an approaching vehicle by its headlights.  ���Stay well behind the car ahead of  you, and be particularly alert in watching for his signals. If you follow too closely, your headlights will reflect in his  rearview mirror and reduce his vision.  ���Watch out for oncoming drivers who  may be out of their lane or on the wrong  side of the street.  ���Watch out for vehicles that might  be parked or stopped on the roadway  with poor lights or none at all. If your  ���" car becomes disabled, get it off the,road  and place flares or lights to alert other  drivers.  ���Don't over-driYe your headlights, At  60 miles per hour, it will take you, under  average conditions, about 370 feet to stop.  Yet you can see only about 200 feet  ahead.  _ ���'Put on your directional signals well  in advance of turning.to allow for decreased visibility.  ���Don't use parking lights when in  motion.  ���Make, adjustments^ for bad weather,  which -urther reduces your already severely limited vision.  ���Keep your windshield and windows  clean, both inside and out. A moderately  dirty windshield may not bother you  much in the daytime, but at night the  glare of oncoming headlights diffused  against the film may blind you, or make  you fail to see unlighted objects.  ���If an approaching driver fails to dim  his lights, don't keep your bright lights  on too. Slow down, dim your lights, and  keep your eyes on the shoulder of the  road or the lane edge to guide you.  DEFENSIVE   DRIVING  "the defensive driver is a confident  driver. He anticipates and counters errors  by other drivers. He, obeys the rules of  the road so that he does not confuse  other drivers. He adjusts his, driving to  changes in traffic, weather, and highway  conditions/He keeps his car in safe condition. He knows that he can prevent  accidents because he would rather yield  than crash. >  SUNSHINE COAST REGIONAL DISTRICT  NOTICE OF ELECTION     1973  PUBLIC NOTICE it hereby given to the electors of the herein cited ELECTORAL  AREAS of the Sunshine Coos.

The following comments were excerpted from  H_nsard,^B-hates of the^Legislative As-  senvbly.   ":��� "V  .  Mr. p. F. Lockstead (Mackenzie): I  wish to make a few very brief remarks,  and to make my position clear in regard  to this bill which' is, of course, that I support the principle oi this bill;        _        .  1 intended originally, Mr. Speaker,  to speak on Friday, but the opportunity  did not arise. Consequently, I've had "three  days back in my constituency to speak  with members of rank, and "file unions  in Mackenzie. I would like to point out to  the House at this time that all my activities in the labor movement have been as  a member of, the rank and file. I served  as a president and secretary of my locaV  as a mediation officer. I served on bargaining and grievance committees, and as  a mutually-agreed-upon mediation officer  officer in disputes s in my constituency.  And as a result of these talks, these conversations "I had with rank and file members of my constituency, in the main I  found a great deal of support for Bill 11.  AH of us who have worked in union  matters, labor matters, over the' years  found that under the previous legislation  we were restricted: the legislation was  punitive. The legislation we had in the  past contributed to labor-management unrest in this province. I feel that this Bill  11, Mr. Speaker^-will go a long way to-  settling labor-management disputes in this'  province,   y  The honorable minister said the other  day in this House when he presented  the bill that if either labor or management find taiilt with this bill, after it has  been tried for a reasonable length of time,  and we as a government agree with their  point of view, the bill can be amended.  , All new and. refreshing legislation is  usually criticized during the initial introduction, lam not unaware of the comments that are being made by people in.  my constituency. I know there is a genuine concern in some quarters as to  what this bill is all about. '-''..'  However, I feel that the" rank and file  will supoprt the government on this bill,  arid I believe that the thoughtful and  concerned people in labor and management will support the principle of this  ^bill as well. Thank you.  Page B-6 Peninsula'Times  Wednesday, October 25, 1973  From the pulpit  /      ���by Pastor Gerry Foster,  Gibsons Pentecostal Church  THE war in the Midd_. East rages on as  the. attention "of the world \focuses  once again on the Arab-Israeli conflict.  It.is especially interesting for Bible be  lievers as much is said in Scripture about  the Jewish race, as well as that area of  the-globe being central in the closing  drama of world history. One day God  will intervene in this affair as He has  predicted many years ago.  An incident was Reported a few days  ' after the current war broke out involving  an Egyption armoured troop carrier. .Apparently it got lost during the night and  joined up by mistake with an Israeli tank  column. \ Of course it was dispovered and  destroyed; But I thought o;f how this describes you and I. We have wandered a-  way from God and have joined up with  _the wrong, army; We are slaves tocsin and  Satan and seem blind to our tragic plight,  as this Egyptian vehicle was ignorant of  its mistake.  - However, we have an advantage over  that trooi) carrier. They were ignorant to  their lost state. We are being told that  unless we repent and be converted we  shall perish., God is daily giving us an  opportunity to return to Him.

"What on e a r t h was ah Elvis  Presley shirt like?" she asked.  "One of my brothers bought one  once. It was black with silver metallic stripes." x  "Far out," she said quickly.  "The only thing out about it was  my father who was put out about my  brother's taste arid made him return  the shirt," I said.  "Actually I suppose this unisex  look has its advantages as far as buying clothes and caring for them. The  , stores no longer have to segregate  girls' and boys' wear. They just hang  it all together in a department tagged 'Either.' There's really no further bother with sorting things for  the washer either. Your jeans and  shirts just get tossed in with your  brothers'. If you kids wore the same  size, the first one out in the morning  would be the best dressed for the  day."  "Mom," she said, "you just have  ,to realize things ��have changed. We  don't want to look like you old folks  did in the 50s. I mean, that was so  long ago!"  "Since it seems we're discussing  things from the olden days," I said,  "how'd you like to have a lesson in  needlepoint tonight?"  "Gosh, I'd like to mother, but  really haven't got the time 'cause  dad and the boys are going to teach  me to shoot pool."  Sechelt Notes  ���by Peggy Connor  THE PARTY held in extended care, St.  Mary's Hospital, was enjoyed by the  patients but due to an error in the paper  it was not the birthday of the gentleman  they thought it was. Everyone had a  good time with the hostesses coming from  Roberts Creek. Chairman for that auxiliary is Mrs. Betty Merrick assisted by Mr3.  Lillian Thomas, Mrs. Dorothy Morrow*  Mrs. Gladys Ironside. Entertainment was  the enjoyable music of Mrs. Mary Redman on the piano.  Ed and Betty Laidlaw holidayed in  Las Vegas, for golfing, not gambling. The  temperature rising to 90 in the day, necessitated their rising at 6 a.m. for a comfortable gome. Due to the green fairways  surrounded, by desert they found their  depth of perception out of proportion,  compensating for this founol them over  shooting. When they ployed at Susan-  vllle near Reno the said conditions were  more like home.  Mr. nnd Mrs. Oscar Johnson's visitors  Inst woek were their daughter, Aidn nnd  fnmlly, husband John Graeme nnd four  sons Johannes, Dlnos, Pnnos Osknr, nnd  Kristos from Anchorngo, Alaska.  Two lucky or better experienced hunters returned to Sechelt Inst week with a  moose nplcce. Ray Stockwell nnd Manfred  Cook were hunting 15 miles north of  Hudson's Hope. -  the season  at the Welcome Beach Hall on Oct. 11  comprised films loaned by the National  Film Board. "Atonement," a film made  by the board for the Canadian Wildlife  Service, offered a fascinating study of  what is being done to conserve wildlife  across Canada, particularly as regards jen-  dangered species. It portrayed the checking and banding of falcons, whose extinction is threatened by DDT..Officers of  the Wildlife Service were seen collecting  eggs to be hatched and the young birds  reared in protective captivity. The film  included studies of the work- being done  in fish hatcheries arid in the tagging and  innbculation of polar bears, grizzlies and  big horn sheep.

The social evening last Saturday at  the, Welcome Beach Hall, convened by  the Ladies' Auxiliary, was a "go as you  please" affair, with tables made up for  bridge, cribbage, rumoli, while . a. few  people polished up on their shufflfeboard  techniques. When refreshment time rolled  around, a big "thank^you" cake was served in honor of the men who had done  such a magnificent job in helping to  instal the furnace and closing in and  insulating the halL The cake was created  by Mrs. Alice Halford.  President Alex Ellis called a short  business meeting to seek approval of the  next steps in the New Horizons project.  Members gave approval of the purchase of  a new projector at, a cost of approximately $800 ahd the cleaning and relin-  ing of the well which would cost around  $100. A committee was appointed to in-  jvestigate and cbmplete^tfie .pJurcftfe^Qf;!  the projector. Ellis expressed thanks to  the ladies who had given Jhe hall such  a thorough fall cleaning and to those responsible for the new bright look in the  kitchen. Mr. and Mrs. Vince Shannon  had donated linoleum which had been  laid by Ed Cook; Mrs. Wm. Fraser had  donated new curtain material which had  been made up by Mrs. B. McCrady.  The next social evening is planned  for Nov. 17 and the Christmas dinner for  Dec. 15.

Cliff Connor  and Richard Laird  are  home after a hunting trip in northern  B.C., empty-handed, but having enjoyed  a very pleasant and interesting holiday.  The weather was good throughout their  travels, though they did run into a little  snow  at  Topley,  beyond    Burns  Lake.  Heading first for the Babine River, they  spent two days visiting the Bob Wick-  wires at their steelhead camp. They came  across some cow moose, but no bulls and  saw quite a few grizzlies.  There were  many signs  of  beaver  and  in  one  instance, they saw skid  marks where an  eight-inch  log had been dragged  down  to the river. Outside Houston, they spent  some time with an old trapper who was  checking over his lines in preparation for  the opening of the season on Nov.  15,  nnd Cliff was interested to find he was  usnig  the   new  humane Conibear  traps  which  kill  furbearing  animals immediately.

Sorry about the slip last week: the  Home and School Club meeting was st_U  in the future, not in the past, when the  paper appeared. Hope all you parents  made it last night!  AT TIMES, Johnny and Joan ^may- bring  home a. dental slip from school, which  requests your.permission for their teeth  to be checked and cleaned..  Because Vour children visit the family  dentist regularly and haven't complained  about toothaches, you may wonder about  the checkup's worth. When a dental s  health team visits school, it wants to  provide a dental check for as many children as possible, said the Canadian Dental  Assn.,       -   \ ^  Many mothers forget how time flies  and that it's close to checkup time. Aside  from serving as a good reminder, school  checkups often allow for detection of cavities when they are just beginning. The  .usual six months between visits provides  enough time for decay to set in, especially in children's teeth.        - ^      ~  You may decide after the school checkup that you'd better get your child to the  dentist even���before the_six-month visit  comes due to catch the decay, while it's  just beginning. This would save much  time,x expense and give less discomfort to  the child.  s> The school health teanTcan often spot  if your child's teeth and jaws are not  developing properly and you may want  to get your dentist's views. After the  examination, the" dental team may clean  and paint your child's teeth with fluoride  to help' prevent decay. The team may  also give classroom talks, show, films on  dental health and teach the proper brushing technique. Sometimes the children  are given a dental coloring book or a free  toothbrush.  After the school checkup, if your child  comes home shouting "Look ma, no cavities!" don't be deluded into thinking you  can delay his appointment with your  regular dentist. The school dental team,;  does not use _x-rays and cannot give a  thorough checkup.  The school team alerts you that treatment may be needed, but it is your dentist who establishes what type and how  much treatment is needed.

WILSON CREEK���When Carroll Yakela-  shek, specialized program co-ordinator.  of Surrey Parks and Recreation Commis.  sion returned to the Sunshine Coast" recently to talk about.community schools,  she was accompanied by Barbara Thomas,  supervisor of community schools and Don  McKinnon,  director  of  adult education  with Surrey  school  board.  They were  speaking to- recreation commission from  throughout the Sunshine Coast. The meeting was at Wilson Creek Hall.  .  Miss Thomas   described    community  schools as a concept for combining schools  with recreation centres. Education,  she  said, was a coiitinuing process from the  . cradle to the grave arid a  community  school was surely a more logical and economic  method  than having separate  schools used only from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  and recreation  centres ��� used chiefly  in  the  evenings.   She  described    the  two,  community schools at present operating  in Surrey of which    she is supervisor.  They are run as junior secondary schools  during the normal school hours, but from  3,' p.m. to midnight, they are in use as  recreation  centres.   At   the  Mary  Jane  Shannon Community School at the present time there is  a day .care centre,  cooking   classes,- bridge   groups,   special  classes for the handicapped and even" a  self-help group composed of low-income  families who buy in bulk to help them  cope  with the ever-increasing    cost of  living.   '  l-Miss Yakelashek suggested that while  Surrey with its d.nse population has two  cdmmunity supervisors, in a smaller area,  this work could be carried on by volunteers. Such matters as the proportion of  financing borne by the school boards and  the recreation authorities would be matters for negotiation as would items such  as janitor services.    ' t  She gave parftkjylars of two bills re-i  cently enacted. Bill ?6 ^Community Recreational Facilities Fund Act) approves  a grant .of one-third of the cost of trie  first million dollars of any community  recreational facility sponsored by a municipality, or a non-profit group. Bill 156,  an amendment to the public Schools Act,  authorizes a school board to enter into  ah agreement- with municipalities or regional districts within the school district  for the purposes of, constructing, maintaining, operating or using jointly.... fac  ilities for community use on a site the  titlev6i which vests in or is held by the  board, municipalities or regional districts.  McKinnon, as an example of how a  project of this type can be funded, described the plans for building a swimming  pool at White Rock junior secondary  school. The pool which is estimated to-  cost $1 million will be built on school  board land,, the value of- which is estimated at $100,000. One third of the cost  of construction will be financed under  Bill 76 and further funds can be obtained  from a winter works program. The ba!-  "ance of the cost will be shared by Surrey  and the municipality of White Rock.   ,  With new schools about to be built  on the Sunshine Coast, it was suggested  that now is the time to consider architecture facilities which would make the  schools of  use for recreation purposes.  Attending the meeting were representatives of recreation commissions, high  school teachers, school board trustees  and other interested persons.
