PHASE TWO CONTINGENCY  In enrolment figures do not justify a  new school, as present statistics indicate,  phase two of Elphinstone will be completed to accommodate the full secondary  school population of 900 students.  Horvath felt the board had "assumed"  that a new junior-senior secondary school  should be built in Gibsons "without giv-  other sites we  And Trustee John MacLeod told the  board that it did not arrive at the decision to rebuild Elphinstone "by careful  thought and debate. .We just drifted into  ��."

Trustees agreed Sept. 27 to commission their architects to draw up preliminary plans for two-stage development in  Gibsons.  The first phase, designed to. accom-  "There was no study of 'the site at  Roberts Creek and there was no study  on the feasibility of building a school in  Sechelt."  He said he would like to see a more  thorough study made of a junior secondary school near Sechelt.  The trustee noted that present enrol  ment figures did not warrant construe,  tion of a new school at S-Chelt, "hut  five qr ten years from now, the popula-,  tion wilL possibly justify a school there,",  he said. v  PROJECTION UP N  Supt. Roland Hanna said that enrolment at Elphinstone at the start of the  year had exceeded his projections by al-i  most 40 students. There were now 809  students at the school, he said.  "When it gets to that stage, we should  think about another school."  Trustee  Pat  Murphy    reported  that,  many Sechelt residents favored a junior  secondary school in .heir area. ,  "If the local people let the depart-"  ment of education know, through their,  elected representatives, that they woulc|;  like a. school in Sechelt, it. should be  taken up," he said. AAA  He noted that Hanna had previously  been in favor of small schools. "I don't  know  where   the  large  school  concept  came from." N  Chairman Agnes Labonte said she fav--  ored the one-school concept, with a junior-senior secondary' school at Gibsons.  A new junior secondary near Sechelt  would have only two advantages, she  felt.      '  "The small number of students in the  radius of the school would not have to  take a bus and you * can often have a  more personal approach in a small  school," she said. N  However, "the educational benefits of  a small school are in some doubt."  She noted that a full range of courses  could not be provided in the smaller  facility.  "There are not really enough students,  at the present time for a school in Sechelt. Enrolment figures have not changed much." ..-.������< ���"7 ,    V  Mrs. Labonte recommended rebuilding a junior-senior secondary school in  XxIjEi  eninsula luneb  Serving the Sunshine Coast, (Howe Sound to Jervis Inlet), including Port Mellon, Hopkins Landing, Granthams Landing, Gibsons, Roberts Creek,  Wilson Creek, Selma Park, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay.

"Vfh can rebuild Elphinstone, then prepare a five-year projection and look towards a school at Sechelt." x  Trustee Terry Booth supported the  one-school concept. \  "Larger schools have the course selection that is very needed," he said. "And  the proposed Sechelt site is too far out  (from  the  village)." \  ���s\  Trustee  Bill  Nimmo   agreed  that  a  larger school would be.more educationally beneficial and less '".of drain on taxes  han two schools.  Horvath, who first- proposed rebuilding Elphinstone in. two_ stages to keep  open the possibility of a new school for  Sechelt, said his scheme would allow  construction to start as soon as possible  On replacement of secondary accommo-"  dation. N    '������'"��� ..  He felt that student population did  not justify a school for Sechelt at the  present time.  Trustee Peter ��� Precesky said he had  originally supported construction of a  Sechelt facility because "it is coming  one day. this is a good time to put it  into effect."  But on the basis of student enrolment,  ' he now supported one school in. Gibsons.  Sole taxpayer at this crucial meeting,-  Vona Clayton of Sechelt, urged the board  to reconsider locating secondary facilities  in Gibsons.   :  "You all seem to take for granted rebuilding on .the present site, although  everyone: agrees it is the most horrid  site we could have."  She noted that the Gibsons site was  valuable property and suggested selling  it-to-help finance-a junior-senior secondary facility at Roberts Creek.  Hanna said the surviving' buildings  and land at Elphinstone would have to be.  appraised before a sale could be considered.  "All me figures would have to be  researched and presented. It would take  time," he said.  Assistant secretary-treas. Lloyd York-  ston felt the department of education  would not allow the district to sell the  Elphinstone site when there were buildings on it."  Said Mrs. Labonte: "We hoped to have  the students in permanent accommodation' by September. If we don't start  (building) soon, there is no hope of that."  Horvath suggested having the board  architects draw up plans for a junior-  sen ior secondary school at Roberts Creek  and ".present, -them'to Victoria for comment.  Mrs. Labonte felt the architect's fees  for this would "waste valuable money  that could go into the school."  Hanna felt there was no reason why,  the board could not give Mrs. Clayton's  suggestion some consideration if it ap-  ' peared feasible.  Mrs. Labonte urged the board to come  to an immediate* decision. "We have to  establish whether or not to go ahead on  the E'phinstone site," she said.  Horvath said it would take only a  short time to ask the department of education if it would allow the district to  sell the Gibsons site. Hanna1 said it could  be done in a day.  Mrs.   Labonte   maintained that   the  value of the Elphinstone site and build-  ' ings was only a small percentage of the  funds required to build a new school.  Said Precesky: "Roberts Creek is an  ideal site for a school, but it is impractical."       V A A-:,  He pinpointed the cost of providing  sewers and services to the location.

The committee studying the nominations decided to make the joint award  tecause of the heavy support received  for both candidates. This is the first year  a posthumous award has been made.  Mayne and Mrs. Lamb will be honored at the chamber's banquet, Oct. 13.  Tom Lamb will receive the award for hia  wife.  In the nominations for Mrs, Lamb  as good citizen, she was described in  such terms as "good for the community",  "devoted to mankind", "helper to everybody" "wonderful mother", "good to senior citizens and Junior citizens", "a real  model of. a Christian."  Mrs. Lamb was born in North Bcd-  cquc, PEI and attended Acadia University and wns a graduate of the Children's  Hospital, Halifax, aa a registered nurse.  She  took  Victorian  Order    of  Nurses'  training at McGill University, Montreal.  Throughout the war years, she served  at Pictou, N.S. following which she was  transferred to Vancouver. After her marriage in 1948 she lived in Sechelt where  she was active in hospital, church and  community work until her death last  spring.  She was president of the Retarded  Children:b Association; member of the  Registered Nurses' Association; member  of the United Church Women; active in  Sunday school; Sechelt campaign manager of tho Canadian National Institute for  the Blind; operator of the loan cupboard  yphich loans wheel chairs, crutches and  other medical equipment. She waa president of tho Sechelt Parent-Teachers' Association.  Persona nominating Mrs. Lamb said:  "If anything was ever needed it was a  case of 'nsk Margaret Lamb' and you  knew the, help would be forthcoming."  "I do hope the memory of this lady  is properly recognized.",  "I cannot think of anyone more deserving. She was always there to help  the sick and troubled, young and old,  she was a good neighbor and friend, did  many kind deeds, in a quiet way."  "... Margaret Lamb's claim to an  honorable shrine in our hearts ond memories Is perhaps based... in the little unassuming things she did to help her  neighbors and fellow citizens... the,sick  or elderly who found some little present,  such as a home-baked loaf on the kitchen  counter after the cheerful visitor left.  "These and other small kindnesses  seemed to be just a natural part of Margarets makeup and while the full extent  and scope of them will probably never  be known, there are many folk in these  parts who treasure the memory of them."

That was the consensus^ of tnost of  the parents attending the Citizens Educa-  Jti..n,KPpr^^  dian Band's recreation hall. About 30 persons attended the meetirigyyX 7;/7_���'-.'������  Parents gathered to discuss the proposed new high school to replace Elphinstone and the possibility of building a  ^Junior high school in the Sechelt area.  Bonnie Paetkau, who has a daughter  in grade 8, said she would be glad to  see her daughter attend school in portable classrooms for the next three years  i if it means building a school in the best  possible site.  "Just rebuilding at Elphinstone is not  good enough," she said. "The recreational  centre is a good site and is available.  This is too big to rush into," she continued when it was indicated that the  school board has passed/a resolution to  rebuild at Elphinstone. /  Vona Clayton agreed with Mrs. Paetkau adding "haste makes waste" and  stated that Elphinstone was a "terrible  site" for a high school and she added that  she too was willing to put up with portables in the anticipation that a better  school can be built at a better site.  School board trustee Peter Prescesky  had indicated earlier in the meeting that  the board's architects had returned plans  for a new school and the board went  over the plans as did the teaching staff.  The staff found many problems with  the plan, said teacher Jeff Madoc-Jones,  and made suggestions ond returned them  to the architects.  Major problem, he said, appeared to  be thot the school would be rebuilt right  across the front of the lot where it was  before. The teachers recommended that  the building be constructed in the back  of the lot at the playing fields. There  would still be room for north-south playing fields, he said.  TEACHERS STUDY PLANS  Larrie Grant, vice principal at Elphinstone, said that the teachers Would take  a look at the revised plans Tuesday (yesterday).  .

Prescesky admitted the plans had  "quite a few faults" and he added that  the board is not trying to "ram the plans  down the throats" of the staff and he -  said the staffs plans that were returned  to the architects contained as many bad  points as the original.  Two officials of the department of  education attended the meeting. They  were invited by Don Lockstead, MLA,  who attended the meeting but then had  to leave early with Harry Olaussen, MP,  to attend the dedication of the Gibsons  sewer system.

A WATER rate increase Is contemplated  for 1074, according to the woter com-  miU'-e of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  The committee was making replica to  questions presented by the Sunshine Const  Regional Ratepayer.'!' Association. Tho  committee report was adapted ot tho  monthly meeting of tho regional district'  Sept. 2.7.  Reason for tho proponed rate increase,  anld tho committee, is to meet rising costs.

Other questions asked what rates aro  charged for water services to the residents  of the Indian Reserve nnd do the Indian  residents pny the land parcel tax?  The committee replied: "In recognition of a prior agreement with the Union  .Steamship Company and in recompense  for extensive easements over Indlari Re-  Horvo land, the Sunshine Coast Regional  District does not bill residents of the  Indian Reserve any consumer charges  for woter.

'-  In that debacle, Director Jim Tyner,  representing Area A (Pender Harbour-.  Egmont), brought out voluminous cor-  ��� respondence from various law firms,  supporting his contention that directors,  not directly involved in a function within a certain electoral area, be not allowed to vote in that function  Tyner based his argument basically  on the fact that directors representing  the villages of Gibsons and Sechelt were  making motions and debating various  aspects Of the building committee. Tyner maintains that because the villages  do not participate iff building activities  in the dfetriet���the villages have their  own building bylaws���directors representing the two municipalities should not  vote. There are other, similar instances.:  Former secretary-treasurer Charles  Gooding, was asked by the board to obtain the opinion of its solicitor, Bruce  Emerson on the matter. Emerson felt  that directors could vote on all items.  Tyner, not agreeing with the opinion*  obtained another comment which sug-'  gested directors could not vote on certain matters.  Carrying this reasoning to the ridiculous, it would be fair to suppose that,  for instance, taxpayers in Area D (Rob-  Vats Creek),want an additional firetruck  and they are willing to pay the increased  taxes for this added fire protection.  Only the residents in Area D will be taxed. Should then other directors vote on  this because they are not actually participating in the function of providing a  firetruck for Roberts Creek? Under that  fuzzy s thinking, the Area D director  could move and second and vote unanimously that the truck be purchased.  Other directors would have no say.  We maintain that if -a person sits on  a board either as an elected member or  appointed member, he should be allowed  to vote on the proceedings of that board.  Under a ^municipal    district'  such'  picayune items would*, not be wasting  valuable time of the directors. Surely  they have the business of the people to  . conduct.      7       '���'���'.������' ���'"���:.������  Adequate fire protection, water,  garbage collectionandirin general, local  gbyernmeht would be available on a  uniform basis throughout the community,  not just a few favored areas, under a  system of one district municipality to  serve! from Port Mellon to Earl's Cdve-  Egmont.  Feasibility of the program deserves  a good look.  Trustees should not rush  SCHOOL board trustees, obviously un-  under the allusion' they are doing  the right thing, are rushing ahead with  plans to rebuild Elphinstone Secondary  School, almost on the same site as the  old firetrap.  They claim they want a 'roof oyer  the heads of the children by next fall.  That's noteworthy but a barn would suffice it it's only a 'roof they want. The  school board now has the opportunity  to build an outstanding educational facility-in an enviable site.  If the board members wait a time and  not rush into approving plans to rebuild on the poorest site imaginable, the  finest type pf school can be constructed  at the recreational centre at Roberts  Creek. It can be an esthetically attractive building incorporating the very  finest and latest education techniques  and tools. It can be a building that the  years is not that important when we are  building for the next few generations.  Think about it.  .  _,-..��>  TIMBER Trail-Riders horse show, Sept.  23, was a lot of fun and was run very  smoothly! Judge Andy Rees did a great  job��� we are really grateful to him. The  show committee, headed by Julie Clark  deserve a vote of thanks, as they did a  fine job.  The turn-out was good, with a group of  Pender Harbour people .taking home a  truckload of ribbons and trophies. One  little contestant, Mindy Peters, is a fine  little horsewoman though only eight-  years old.  I believe our local feed dealer, Bob  Wells, will be counting horses instead  of sheep for weeks, as whipper-in he did  a commendable job of keeping the classes  moving.  Role of an alderman  Editor, The Times,   '  ,  Sir: There seems to be a, tradition that  you hear only once from your elected  official during his stay in office. That,  is, when his term expires and he is campaigning for re-election.  I would like to break this tradition  and give to all my supporters, the public  at large and, in particular, to new candidates seeking office, a general account of  activities connected with the position of a  public official  After election, you realize for the first  time to the fullest extent what it means  to be under the view .of the public at all  times. AYou are toying to be faii\to everybody and learning your responsibilities  at the same time. Most people have no  patience ahd if no action is forthcoming  within h month or so, the official is to  blame.  You are appointed by your mayor to  chair certain committees and share the  responsibilities on others. Speaking for  myself, I started out with harbor,, fire  protection and street lighting. In the  month following, roads, water resources,  and civil defence have been added.  There are two��regular public meetings  a month scheduled. But the bulk of meetings are nonscheduled find made up of  meetings with the village planner, village  engineering firm, public officials, civic  groups, special committees and community  function meetings..  In my 38 weeks in office I have attended 91 meetings. For each meeting you  should allow reasonable time for preparation and investigation on items concerned.  In this time period I also attended one  three-day seminar and one three-day  UBCM convention. . y  As each new candidate can readily see,  the time element involved in trying to resolve the problems in a most; responsible  way'is considerable. Free time for extra  curricular activities or involvements is almost none existing.  It is very beneficial for any candidate  to familiarize himself with the local and  regional scene and long time residence will  help him to a great extent.  Although it would be unfair not to  mention that you are reimbursed with  $1,250 annually, of which you would expect to pay your share of the nation's  income tax, the reward of the public official does not lie in the monetary field,  but in the feeling he receives, from the  public of a job well done.  To get involved he must establish the  confidence of the public and to act on  their behalf. You people must communicate with him. So let's open up all avenues, I am one of your elected officials.

It takes time and  planning.  Elphinstone site is not the place for  a school. It's an ideal site for a shopping centre and as such a highly desirable and valuable piece of property.  A school is simply not practical  there. The highway runs right past the  door. If the building is moved north  to get away from traffic it will only be  a short time until traffic from the new  highway (and other shopping centres)  will be roaring past its doors.  Board members have been told that  parents do not mind portable classrooms  for their children if it means building  a decent plant at the best possible location. Children do not mind the portable  classrooms. Admittedly split shifts arc  far from ideal but the tunc is coming  when schools will be operated on a  year-round basis with longer daily operating times. ��  Schools needn't be unattractive  buildings that operate merely a few hours  a day 10 months out of the year. They  can be a resource centre that is used  not only by children but by adults. Such  a building cannot properly be built on  the present site.  Schools now are being built with  parks nearby. School trustees have only  to look in trade and professional magazines to see wljat is being accomplished  these days. We do not have to build a  school which is divided into so many  compartments and into which various  ago groups of children are sent.  Trustees should take junkets and  look at some of the other, new and .exciting concepts in modern-day education.  They should talk to the teachers, department of education officials, other school  district superintendents and find out  what ia going on now and what is anticipated in education. School trustees  should not just go ahead and rebuild on  a site that is a loser.. . thoy should  build an attractive modern facility  in  an attractive location. i  A few months or oven a couple of  The Peninsula*]4*mb  Published Wednesdays nt Sechelt  on B.C.'s Sunshine Const  by  Powell River News Town Crlcr  Sechelt Times Ltd.

Uncanny prognostications  look into the year 2500  m^i-T^^^i" ���s~7%^i  Sir: My friend, SchmgfeletMtz, has  an uncanny aptitude, not for second sight,  but-for mentally following out potential  eventualities to then: logical conclusions.  I asked him when he thought we  would have less noise on the highway.  "By the year 2500," he said. "By that,  time all available soil, sand and gravel  will have been gouged out, dumped into  trucks and roared off down the road to  be dumped somewhere else."  "What about jobs for truck drivers  and supposing they decide to dig it up  again and truck it back to where they  got it from?" I said.  "You have a point there," said Schnig,  "but long before that nearly all work will  be done by pushbuttons. That will work  O.K. but sooner or later one of the push-  buttoneers will throw a custard pie in  the face of the president of MacMillan  Bloedel. He will be fired, so all the push-  buttoneers will go on strike and picket  the push buttons. That Strike will last a  long, long time. The president of the  company had not been in a TV games  show, so he did not like custard pie  in the face."  "Would the legislative assembly do  something about lt?"  "There would be no LA because tar  several sessions no one could think ol  anything else to make a law about. So  they abolished it. Instead, a dictator  would be chosen, for Integrity and common sense, by a computer."  "And for  brains?"  I asked.  "Oh no, not brains: brains had been  cbndemned long ago," said Schnig.  "What about education?" I sold.  "Education would have been abolished," replied Schnig. "It had been found  by computers thot the more kids knew,  tho moro they Understood what was, going on. Besides, they got weak backs  from sitting at those desks."  "How would people oat if no ono did  nny work?" I sold.  "Tho farmers would go on working  12 hours a day, seven days a week as  thoy always had to nnd always will,  being told that prosperity is Just around  the  corner,   aa  wo    were   everlastingly  Bleachers held eyesore  -andshould be torn down  Editor, The Times  Sir: In your last paper, you asked why  we did not get some of the $214,040.95  Community Recreation Facilities F u n d  Act. I would like to go along with you ���  "on that. Ihe council is talking of sodding  and fixing up the grounds, but in my  humble opinion there is a far more important job that should be done first. The  fence and bleachers in Hackett Park. I  am referring to that eyesore and public  menace, those blea.hers>  There is a sign posted that anyone  Using them does so at their own risk, but  ih my opinion anything as dangerous and  unsightly that needs a warning like that  needs removing, for several reasons.  1. There are children playing on them  and running around on the seats, and  ^sooner or later someone is going to get  injured, for if that monstrosity is danger-  _ ous enough to warn the public to keep  off, it is certainly bad enough to have it  torn down before some of these children  get injured.  2. Ocean Aventie is a nice street with  small trees planted on each side, nice  new fence around the school grounds,  and good pavement, with the attractive  Senior Citizens Housing at the top of the  street, but on the other side we have  what the seniors call the stockyards. But  that is an insult to any stockyard I've  seen, they are always whitewashed and  sound and are not an eyesore by any.  ��� means. y  3- Hackett Park did not cost the villas anything, so why not make it look  attractive and a place visitors will like  . to see. V- . -���  4. If some of this money our editor  mentions were acquired and a new fence  like .the school grounds  have, then go  the other end of the park, and as long  as these old tumble-down bleachers are  here the new backstop is hot used.  Our editor mentioned getting the  Lions to look into it, but I think the  Lions are doing more than their share  in everything.  I'will quit my efforts on behalf of the  children that continue to tear around on  the stands not realizing the risk they run.  OK Mr. Editor, perhaps you can get  some action. ' ,  REG C. SMEARS  Box 67, Sechelt  By ALLEN CRANE  THE  FILM  Society's  booking  , of _ The  True Nature of Bern&dette, scheduled  for Oct. 10, has been pre-empted by a  commercial run in Winnipeg.  Anyone involved in arranging film  programs^ must face this hazard, particularly in cases of films which do not have  mass appeal and which exist in only two  or three prints for the whole of Canada.  Film distributors cannot guarantee-a date  even when it is booked and confirmed  because films may be held over during  commercial runs moving subseqiieht  bookings forward. There is only one print  of The True Nature of Bernadette in  Canada. The Film Society will endeavour  to book it early in the new year.  There has ribt been sufficient time to  book a suitable Canadian film in place  of the postponed feature (prints are not  usually held in Vancouver but rather in  eastern Canada), so the Canadian series  will start with Ted Kotcheffs Outback  on the date announced in the Society's  program, Nov. 7, Instead pf the announced  feature for next Wednesday, Oct. 10, it  is hoped to screen George Cukoi"s 1934  production of David Copperfield which  stars Lionel Barrymore arid W. C. Fields,  a distinguished Micawber. This will be  confirmed in next week's Times. All mem-"  bers will receive notification by mail.  To-night, starting at 8 o'clock and  ending approximately 10:30, Michaelari^  gelo Antoniojqi's prize-winning L'Awen-  tura (The Adventure) will be screened.  ' This film was made seven years before  Antonioni's. popular Blow-up and tells of  a wealthy girl unaccountably lost on an  island off Sicily, while her fiance falls  in love with her girl-friend.  Membership cards will be available  at the  Twilight    Theatre    immediately  prior to showtime, or they may be obtained by sending a cheque ($3 adults,  $1.50 students, $1 senior citizens and  children) to the Kwahtahmoss Film Society, General Delivery, Gibsons.

Report held distorted  Editor, The Times  Sir: I am amazed at the way the Coast  News distorted the report of the last Gibsons council meeting regarding the lease  of the village land oh Shaw Road for a  curling rink. I had the impression council gave us a very fair hearing. (  , Alderman Hoehne favors dividing up  the village 40 acres and selling it at some  future date. He says "it's very valuable  view property for residential use". My  answer was that Vancouver would find  Stanley Park very valuable but they are  itrylng at great cost to increse its size,  not cut it up.  I I know the village is in a poor financial state due in part to the meddling of  Frank West and hia Gower Point committee In Gibsons sewer project but I  was trying at no coat to the villoge and  with the help of the Winter Club to bring  about tho hope of a community centre  on this beautiful site.  Many thanks to all the good people  who voted for mo. My congratulations to  alderman-elect  Bill  Laing.  Aid.  Hoehne  I will not find him ns easy to manipulate  as he may think.  I      Perhaps Aid.  Hoehne and his group,  plus the editor of the Coast News, should  take their  places  on tho tombstones of  , Pioneer Parkj instead of tho young peo-  | pie who so sadly sit thoro now.  ' IAN J.

There is one main test.  It is pointed out for us in 2 John  where it is stated that "many deceivers  have gone out into the world; men who  will not acknowledge the coming of Jesus  Christ in the flesh��� anyone who goes  ahead and does not abide in the doctrine  of Christ does not have God." This makes  it quite clear that Christ is the test. He  should have the central place in the presentation. Is He presented as God manifest in the. flesh? Is His bodily resurrection stressed Is He proclaimed as Lord  of Lords and King of Kings? If one is  abiding in the doctrine of Christ he will  accept these and everything else the  Bible has to say about Him.  ' We can be duped into accepting  things which stem from.the .imaginations,  of man. On the surface it appears to be  truth, but beneath it only confused teaching. Remember that Jesus said "I am the  truth". And if you receive Him He will  give you the Holy Spirit who will "guide  you intb all truth".

He thanked present and past council  members for their efforts in seeing the  project through from conception to implementation.  Venables said the opening marked the  culmination of much effort by council,  the community, consulting engineers Dayton and Knight and concerned citizens.  "The village of Gibsons has shown St  is prepared to take responsibility for  keeping B.C. in the forefront of sewage  treatment," he said.  District director of the pollution control branch, Bill Hamilton, said that his  department would be responsible ��� for  checking the content of the plant's outflow to insure there was no contamination of the water.  Harry Olaussen, MP reported that the  federal government was interested In  pollution control ond was advancing  loans to local governments for the construction of sewage plants.  "It is really great to know that villages and the government ore doing all  they can so we can live in a safe and  clean community," he said.  Don Lockstead, MLA congratulated  the village oh constructing the plant and  noted that the provincial governmemt,  too, was going to become involved in local  sewage treatment  projects.

Rentals  & Building Supply  MADEIRA PARK  883-2585  SECHELT���International Fund for Animal Welfare, inc. (IFAW) has a strong  advocate in the person of Mrs. C. M. McDonald, Field Road, Sechelt.  Mrs. McDonald, disheartened at hearing about and seeing pictures about cruelty to animals, contacted the IFAW, PO  Box 1011, Fredericton, N.B., and forwarded a contribution.  The group, founded in Fredericton in  1969 on the belief that animals have a  value for their own sake, has since received world-wide fame and has 82,000  members in 30 countries.  Executive Director of the IFAW, Brian Davies, in a letter to Mrs. McDonald  said IFAW is, "...I believe, perhaps the  most effective lobby for animals on an  international scale, in the world."  Davies said the group's effectiveness  lies in a specific philosophical area of  approach. "We think the seals should be  saved just because a seal probably enjoys  being alive swimming in the ocean."  Efforts of IFAW saved the lives of  tens of thousands of robins in New  Brunswick. The group is currently working on'a film documentary oh seals.  The IFAW has been active in promoting legislation leading to a ban on the  sale of harp seal products in various countries "and we believe IFAW people can  fairly claim that legislation in the U.S.A.  prohibiting the import of baby harp seal  products was significantly influenced by  our persistent campaign against the hunt."  In 1971 and" 1972, IFAW created an 'air  bridge to safety* for polar bears marked  for destruction at Churchill, Man. The  IFAW flew 30 bears out and headed off  a government plan to shoot a further 70  of the giant animals.  The IFAW saved the New Brunswick  robins by a saturation advertising program. Blueberry growers were concerned about their crops and had planned  mass shootings of thousands of songbirds  (mostly robins). IFAW's campaign  brought  assurance  that  permits  to  kill  iCIAL  INCEMENT  the birds would not be issued. In addition, IFAW introduced to the growers'  'scare' devices that will save their crops  withdut the necessity of killing the birds.  Persons interested in supporting IFAW  may send contributions to: International  Fund for Animal Welfare, PO Box 1011,  Frederickton, N.B.

"We don't think you could find anyone more deserving of this award."  In another part of today's paper Jack  Mayne has written a brief autobriography  ' of the days since he came to Sechelt.  The nominating committee recommended to the Chamber that the good  citizen award be an annual event instead  of every other year.  EDITOR'S NOTE: The following article,  written by Hugh Weatherby of West  Sechelt, points out the advantages of using slash, rather than burning. Weatter-  by knows his subject and offers the following credentials: Associate . Member  Canadian Institute of Forestry; 10 years  public relations officer, B.C. Forest Service; many years press counsel B.C. Lumber Manufacturers' Association; B.C. Red  Cedar Shingle Assn., B.C. Loggers Assn.;  editor, B.C. Lumberman, associate and  western editor, Timber of Canada; producer of five motion picture documentaries,  author of, 13 books and hundreds of articles and' editorials.  In the early summer of 1938, the  whole of Canada became aware of the  fast-building fire hazard in the forests  of British Columbia; the threat was clim:  axed by the Campbell River fire, which  destroyed a strip of prime Vancouver  Island timber, probably the finest in the  world, 50 miles long and 10 miles wide,  .on; an average. Property damage, apart  from timber, was high, and at one time  it was feared the towns of Courtenay  and Cumberland would be wiped, out.  ���Fire hose was strung along the sidewalks, and families ih the direct path  of the fire were evacuated.  'A wind change saved the farms and  the to whs, but the fear generated by the  proximity of the fire brought about new  legislation, designed to control post-logging practices and prevent the build-up  of wide areas of highly-inflammable logging debris, or slash.  The most important lesson we learned-  was that slash always burns. The legisla- ,  tion was aimed at burning the slash during the least hazardous periods, just prior,  to expected rains, or when the relative  humidity was high. This method of burning "was, for the most; part, effective, but  if the rains did not come, or temperature  inversion, or some other freak of nature,  caused the humidity to stay low, the  lighted fires became forest fires, burning  out of control, and had to be fought in  the conventional manner. On an average, we won more than* we lost. '  During this period, immediately after  the Great Depression, the B.C. Forest  Service boasted some of the best brains'  I have encountered anywhere, and they  recognized that our whole concept and ,  approach was wrong; instead of fighting  huge slash fires, we should have been  concentrating our efforts on closer utilization of forest yield, thus reducing the  volume of slash, with its high fire hazard, and turning a costly liability into  a profitable by-product. Getting this idea  across to the legislators was a horse of  a different color; unlimited funds were  available to fight fires,  but money  to  eliminate  the cause of  such  fires was  doled out with a miser's touch.   ���  In vain, members of the Forest Service pointed out that hemlock bark was  loaded with tannin, used in the tanning  industry, and a closely "related product,  known as quebracho, which was widely  used in oil well drilling. (It gave the  mud, or slurry, the desired texture, and  was currently imported in large quantities  from South America.) A useful commercial' wax could be recovered from the  bark of Douglas fir, and the needles of  many conifers yielded valuable essential  oils. And the most valuable, afid most  readily salvaged of all by-products, wood  chips for pulp, was ignored completely.  (Formerly, wood that had been in the  water too long, absorbed salt, which made  it unsuitable (for pulp chips, but that  difficulty had been * overcome, and no  valid reason remained for not using the  residue known as 'slash'.)  Obviously, the higher the rate of salvage, the smaller the volume of waste  that must be burnedX  These facts were known over 30 years  ago, but we still carry on in the same  stupid- and wasteful manner. I once  wrote an editorial, based on a carefully  conducted survey, which pointed out that  only two of our provincial legislators had.  any woods experience, one Very little,'  and I concluded that legislation covering  our most valuable source of revenue was  framed by lv% elected members.

Mrs. M. Shelton of Halfmoon Bay, who  'demanded' water service 'to her property  will be told that the regional district has  no jurisdiction or power to connect to  the existing private waterworks system  in the Redrooffs area or to MacMillan  Bloedel's waterworks system.  Area B director Rita Relf, a committee member, commented that it is out  of the question to provide water service  to this area (Halfmoon Bay) at this time.  "In any case," the committee reported,  "Not all the residents in the area wanted  such services because of the cost involved."  The committee then made the following recommendations: "That Mrs. Shelton  be advised that in the Redrooffs area at  present there are already three or more  independent utilities and a large area  without piped water served by wells and  streams. The board has no power to take  over these utilities or force people to  take water from a regional scheme, if  provided. It cannot economically provide  water to the area unless everyone participates.

Planner will study  curling rink scheme  ^9k  BILL LAING  BUI Laing  new alderman  GIBSONS-���Maintenance  supervisor  Bill  Laing is the new alderman on Gibsons village councils  He defeated fellow Canfor employee  Ian MacKenzie in the Sept. _9 by election  by 153 votes to 55. y  The new member will sit on council  untU Dec. 31, 1974, filling ou| the term  of former Aid. Hugh Archer, who rer  signed.  Polling turnout was poor, reflecting a  lack of interest among electors,yMcwrd-  ingto returning officer Jack CopfcahcL  Copland, who wa& presiding owr his  first election since coining to Gibsons  from Gold River, described voter-interest  as "shocking".  In his last municipality, "there was  great interest in civic affairs," he said,  "and I hope we will have a better response in the November elections."  Laing has lived in the area for 20  years and he and his wife Ruby, have a  21-year-old son, Harold, and a daughter,  Linda, 14.  The newly-elected alderman has long  been active in community affairs, and  feels that Gibsons has a great deal to  contribute to the region as a whole.

GIBSONS���Winter Club ..proposals ���for' a  curling rink on 2% acres of village  owned property received I a mixed reception from aldermen at council's Sept. 25  meeting ..:..._   ..._��� .........  Spokesman for the club, Ian MacKenzie, felt that a curling rink could act as  a catalyst and stimulate development of  a community recreation centre on the  site, which is bounded by Charman and  Shaw Roads.  "You can't beat this site," he said.  "It's central and near Kinsmen Park and  the boat launching ramp."  MacKenzie felt, development of the  location would tie together the upper and  lower levels of the village.  He said the provincial government  was prepared to provide partial financing  for the project as soon as a lease is signed.  Aid. Kurt Hoehne, a strong proponent  of the curling rink concept, felt facilities  should be constructed in Brothers Park,  and not on the 2% acre parcel requested  by the club, which lies within a 40-acre  tract.  "The 40 acres of village land is very  valuable view property. The village  would profit more financially (by subdividing the area) than it would from a  curling rink."      .  Acting mayor Winston Robinson stud  development of the 40 acres would provide money "to cure a few ills that already exist ih the village, such as straightening roads. This way; the money will go  back into the village."  RoBinson was also opposed to constructing the rink in Brothers Park, which  will be shortly turned over'to the village  by the board of the park trustees, which  previously administered the area.  "The trustees stipulated in the turnover agreement that we must keep Brothers Park as parkland. We're abiding by  that"  MacKenzie said council, the village  planner and Winter Club members could  discuss alternative sites and decide on a  good location for the rink.  Aid. Ted Hume opposed leasing public  parkland to the club.  "I'm not against the rink going in  Brothers Park, but it is dedicated to the  taxpayers and the taxpayers voted down  a recreation centre twice," he said.  In view of this, the alderman felt it  would be improper for .council to lease  parkland to a private club for development of a recreation centre.  "If the village could afford to develop  acurlmg_ rink, this would be all right,  but not a private club."  Hoehne noted that the Winter Club  was not 100 per cent private.  "It is a non-profit society willing to  take up the cost of a curling rink. There  would be no cost, to the taxpayers."  The club was also open to the public,  he explained. s  A 100-signature petition urging council to lease the 2% acre site to the Winter  Club was referred to the village planner  for consideration.      y  Under other council news, aldermen  agreed that the regional district should  take over, responsibility for the Gibsons-  Sechelt airport.  Hume noted that the two villages presently bore, all the costs of operating tfae  facility.     .  "It's hot just for the use of Sechelt  and Gibsons, but for the whole region,"  he said.        7  Robinson noted Hhat transfer of the  airport to a regional function had been  discussed for two years "but the regional  board turned "hands down on thi_."  The subject arose from a letter submitted by Sechelt village council suggesting that _ member.of the Aero Club be  appointed to the airport committee.  "We feel it would be invaluable to  the improvement of the local strip," the  letter said.  Council endorsed this suggestion. Aldermen also agreed to urge the regional  district, through the airport committee,  to take responsibility for the strip.  Franklin Road residents will apply for  an LIP grant to fight foreshore erosion-  along Franklin Bay.  William Davis explained in a letter  that residents were concerned With the  accessibility of the area to senior citizens  and local families.  "Your recent action in establishing  zoning bylaws not only for. the village  proper, but including recreational: uses  of adjacent foreshore waters, indicates  that yoiir views are very similar tp purs,"  he wrote. '7  "At this time, we; would request yotir  written support in principle for the development of a proposal for a federal LIP  Land reserve  hearing set 7  A PUBLIIC hearing on a draft bylaw on ,  the adoption of Agricultural Land Re- \  serve Plans will, be Oct. 17 at 7:30 at ,  Sechelt Elementary School, Sunshine ������  Coast Regional Board directors said last  week. '  Members of the public may voice their  opinions on the proposed bylaw and agricultural reserve plan$ for the district  at that time. "Copies of the plans may be  inspected at the regional district office  at the Whitaker Block, Davis Bay from  Oct. 9 to Oct. 17 between 8:30 a.m. to  12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Mondays  to Fridays. y v  The intention of the bylaw is to adopt  agricultural land ireserve* plans setting  out clearly -land- suitable for farmyuse,  for the purpose of filing the bylaw and  plans with the provincial land commission  for its consideration and designation of  the land in question. *  \ ���'.-���'        -��� ��� ���   .  grant for the retention and improvement  of foreshore along Franklin Bay,"  i     CunciT agreed to endorse the group's  LIP application.  Hume felt it was important for council to give moral support to local residents applying for LIP grants.  i "We can be quite proud to have citizens within the village who are undertaking projects such as this," he said.  Aldermen tabled for further study a  second application for endorsement from  the Sunshine Coast Craft Fair, who also  intend applying for. an LIP grant  ' Council supported arequest from the  local RCMP detachment to designate  part of School Road as a school zone.  The area in the vicinity of Gibsons  Elementary School will be posted 20 mph.  In a letter, Cpl. Eric Dandy said he  had  also  requested  the  department of.  highways to designate a school zone on  Highway  101  fronting Elphinstone Secondary School.  He said: "It is my opinion that if the  area from the high school to the elementary school was designated a school zone;  'it would be safer for the students attending these schools."  A  PSSST!

That  should be a start for a good square and  then���Oh! hi, there, I didn't realize you  were reading my column already. ��� The  Peninsula Times sure is on the ball, likeN  fast, so I 'had best get on with square  dance news.  Well, last Friday was my first night  of calling and due to a few phone calls  coming in that some of our Country Stars,  had sunk in the west along with the  sun and that old flu bug, I thought that  I would have a very easy night, when up  the road, with such a roar, several cars  drove up 'to the door. In came the dancers, squared up on the floor, almost three  sets but there was room for more.  The music, of course, was just right as  the square dancers stepped lively with  such delight, all of a sudden, like the  week before, the square dancers said  good night and were gone out the door.  I .looked at caller Harry, he looked right  back, said, "I think our get-up and go  has got up and left."  As I had time once to look quickly  around the hall my trained eye caught  sight of Bob and Doris Crichton, Pender  Harbour. Sure good to see you.  Guests for, the evening were: Marion  and Eric .Huskins, Roberts Creek, Don  and Lois Jackson, Gibsons, Maureen  ���^ueff, Gibsons, Art Smylie, Gibsons our.  bid square dance friend front a few  years back, Bud Laird, Port Mellon and  special guest who has visited our club  before, all the way from Brandon, Manitoba, Gladys Parish's mother, Mrs. Ellen  Warrender. It's sure good to see friends  like Ellen. You see, you not only have  fun at a square dance but you-renew old  friends and meet new people. It's a never  ending source of expectations and friendship.  I see the big hand on the clock has  passed the little one, so it's time to leave  you with this thought: You can stay  at home and fight with your wife, but  that soon gets boring. You could lie on  the couch, but what do you know, you  would soon be snoring. So wake up to  facts, life went that way, call Lonesome  886-2535   and  square  dance,  what  say?  Concert bond  needs members  SUNSHINE COAST Kiwanians are  justifiably proud of their senior citizens housing development on North.  Road, Gibsons. The impressive complex is slated to open Oct. 15> Here,  some club members involved in the  project pose in front of one of the  wings.  Mid-Oct. opening seen  for Kiwanis project  GIBSONS���An opening date of Oct.  15  has been set for the Kiwanis senior ���������  citizens housing development in Gibsons. ,  And vacancies are fast being filled.  The club urges pensioners over 65 years  of age to conduct them quickly if they  are interested in a place.  The project features seven double  rooms and 13 singles in a peaceful, contemporary setting.  Planning on the $300,000 development  started in early spring last year, with  Kiwaa_ians raising over ten per cent of  the total cost through contributions and  special fund-raising events. This qualified them for a loan from the Central  Mortgage and Housing Association.  The present site, on North Road, allows for future expansion and the Kiwanis Club foresees, duplicating present  facilities when the need arises.  Any Peninsula residents over the age  of 65 who are interested in obtaining a  place in the development should contact  Bill Wright at 886-7735.  Dental Topics  DENTAL research may have come up  7   'With!knothe? method of early detection of tooth decay, according to the Canadian Dental Association.  Until recently, the tooth was believed  to be inactive. But by applying a technique developed for studying fluid movement in major organs such as the kidneys,  dental scientists observed that dentinal  fluid did move from the pulp to tiny  channels in the dentine to the enamel.  They found that a slowdown in this  fluid movement, caused by a high sugar  diet, may be an early indication of tooth  decay developing. The high sugar diet  is said to disturb the hormone balance,  and with the slowdown of this internal  fluid, the teeth are more vulnerable.  The dental researchers found that  healthy teeth with a normal flow are  invulnerable to decay-causing bacteria  that are always found in the mouth.  The scientists have found chemical  ways of stimulating the flow of this dental fluid, which may some day be one  method of preventing decay.  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  THE INDEFATIGABLE Olive Clear has  done it again! At the age of 85, she  :has returned as bright- ahd chirpy as a  sparrow fr.om a 19-day Evergreen bus  tour covering 4,387 mile�� which would  have exhausted lesser mortals. The tour  covered the states of Washington, Montana, the Dakotas, Wyoming, Colorado,  Utah7 Idaho and.Oregon.  The drive through the South Dakota  Badlands was a day of infinite variety,  surrounded by high; peaks and caves  which were the hiding places of the  bandits of an earlier day. They made a  stop at Mt. Rushmore where Mrs. Clear  saw the busts of Washington, Jefferson!  Lincoln and Roosevelt which had been  carved out of the sheer granite face of  the 6,600 ft. mountain.  By way of Yellowstone National  Park, they arrived in Cody, Wyoming,  where they spent a morning visiting the.  Buffalo Bill Historical Centre and Museum. There was, so much of interest,  says Mrs. Clear, that she could have  spent three days there.  By way of Colorado Springs, Pueblo,.  the La Veta Pass and Pagosa Springs  they arrived at Durango, one of the  most southerly points of their tour, for  a two-night stopover: They visited what  Mrs. Clear considered the most beautiful part of the trip, Mesa Verde National  Park, where they saw the cave dwellings,  abode shacks of Navajo Indians built  inside the -caves.  Returning to Durango, they journeyed  to Silverton by the narrow-gauge railway which has been operating continuously since 1882 and which was featured in the film "Around the World in  Eighty Days". It was a really thrilling  ride, says Mrs. Clear, continually twisting and turning, with peaks between  10,000 and 14,000 feet on either side of  them. Their bus met them at Silverton'  and they drove north through the San  Juan Mountains by^Red Mountain Pass.  They spent two nights at Salt Lake City  where they visited the Peace Gardens,  did a two-hour tour of the city arid  heard an organ recital at Visitors' Centre. They returned home by way of  eastern Oregon, Mount Hood and Portland, where, declares Mrs. Clear, it is  always raining.  The weather was fine throughout the  trip and in the opinion of Mrs. Clear,  the most interesting states were Wyoming and Colorado. She brought back 210  picture postcards as well as a number  of photographs anti slides, With these  she hopes to convince husband Guy that  he should do the same trip next year.  Two other travellers who have returned from a trip are Charlie Coatham  and   Mabel  Aikenhead   who  drove  to  jtKKKIIIIilllllllKIIIKKKIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIHIIIlami,,!,,,,,,!^  -���by Mqry Tinkley  Revelstoke and then north to the Mica  Dam.

No sooner did Mr. Coatham arrive  home than he received news of the sudden death of an old friend and longtime colleague *oh the CPR.; The news  was all the more of a shock because he  had spoken to his ��� friend on his way  home through Vancouver.

MORE ABOUT  Portables not all bad  The peninsula Times v       Page B-3'   J[f \ association  meeting  Wednesday, October 3, 1973 *-  the school planning section. When he wa$  asked if his department had been queried  .about .the plans, Tje said it had not* and  ���wouldn't be involved until plans were  submitted to Victoria for final approval.  -_ When, asked if he was Invited to sit  in on Tuesday's meeting with teachers  while they studied the plans, he said  that he had not been invited but would  be willing to if an invitation were extended. \  John* McNevin said that he hoped that  parochial interests would be put aside  and "a look at the system" be taken. He  said that with the present system parents  do not take an interest in schools. He  backed the suggestion for.a junior-secondary school in the Sechelt area and he  sug&este_\ the value of parental ^involvement when con-rifunity schools are available.  Eric Paetkau suggested: that the  school board trustees fly over the recreational centre site and the Elphinstone  site and they would see "what a glorious opportunity we have" to build a ���  ���school on the 115-acre site. He said that  .. 60,000 persons will be living on the Sunshine Coast in 25 years and such areas  as the recreatibn site, will be appreciated.  PROPERTY CAN BE SO��D  The department of education officials  said that the school board can sell property as they wished and they cited the  case of the Vancouver school board  holding property and then leasing for  years as a method-of raising funds.  Returning to the theme of staff suggesting the best facility, Paetkau reminded the audience that when St. Mary's  Hospital was built, the doctors and other  professional staff were told by Victoria  to design what was needed to serve the  area. "Teachers should be given the  same chance to design the new high  school," he added.  He then asked/ Olaussen if federal  grants are available. Olaussen said that  federal grants are available to build recreational facilities if built, within a complex. He also suggested winter works  programs.  Lockstead said that the provincial  government, through a special fund, will  contribute up to one third the cost up. to  $1 million of a recreation complex.  Ricki Leipsic, secretary of the meeting,  suggested that with the school/recreation  complex a library, "which is badly needed" would be ideal.  Clarence Joe, band manager of the  hosting band council, told the audience  that the, Indian people "are going to  become involved with school planning"  and added, "we don't want to be ignored."  He said that Indians are also citizen-  voters and "we have a voice and we  want to look at all avenues of school  planning." He added that schools have  been on the reserve since 1902. .  Joe said that answers are needed and  there are many reasons  why so  many  '    Indian children go  away  to schools  in  North   Vancouver   and     other   locations  other than Gibsons.  The government officials, replying to  a question of Joanne McNevin, said that  w, there is no new method of government  * financing-available or contemplated. And  trustee John Macleod added that the  school district has not lost a single cent  in grants because of the fire.  SCHOOL  IN  FALL  Prescesky: told the audience that the  school board has determined that there  will be a school on the Elphinstone site  and that it will be ready by next fall.  "I want to lay to rest the myth that  a school will not be built for three years,"  he said. School board chairman Agnes  Labonte pointed out at one meeting that  if the district goes to referendum it would  take up to three years before it was  realized. He said that the board has resolved to rebuild on the Elphinstone site  and will look at the feasibility of a second  school at Sechelt. If that is not practical,  the contingency plan is to build Elphinstone to conform to take all students.  He admitted that the plans had "quite  a few faults" but stressed that the board  was not "trying to ram the plans down  the throats of the staff. That's not true  at all."  He said that every board member  weighed the possibilities of plans and  added that "of prime importance is a  roof over the heads of the kids. We don't  want kids in portables for years, unless  the people want it. We have considered  the recreational centre and determined  that it can't be done (a new school) in  less than three years."  He said that if the area does grow  to 00,000 as predicted there would be  schools  needed  all  over  the  place.  Vice-principal Larrle Grant said that  children are not suffering by being housed in portable classrooms. He said that  library conditions are excellent nnd that  Garry Foxall, librarian, is opening tho  library nt 7 a.m. to serve the early shifts,  Grant conceded that the one problem  is physical education which is why outdoor sports are being ..tressed this year.  He nlso snid that having to cross the  rond   was  tin  added   problem.  "If people want something better,"  said Mrs. Fuller, "the board can wait,  another three or four months before  making a decision."  Frank Fuller, high school teacher,  said thnt in recent years dialogue has  been lost between the people nnd the  school  hoard.  Macleod agreed that the dialogue had  continued from P^age A-l  been lost and he cited an instance last  December when'the board was trying (to,  pass a referendum und'held an informational .meeting and only nine persons  turned out.  "I'm sure the board of school trustees  are more than anxious to hear from the  public. Not one board member will ignWe  what the public has to^ay."  Following the meeting the- audience  broke up into informal discussion after  which they reported to the forum.  Boyce Banher, a representative of the  department of Indian Affairs for this  district, said that regarding financing a  new secondary school, no mention had  been made of the corKiiderable contributions made by his department on behalf of  Indian students in the district.  In 1968, he said, the .capital contributions were $104,567. Another $75,000 was  contributed to implement an integration  program providing the district with four  teacher aides and two remedial reading  Strait talk  t��� by Joan Proctor '  \ I -  IT WAS  inevitable < that with my  kind of timing I'd have a dental  appointment for the Friday prior to  Thanksgiving.

President Tarn London in the chair,  welcomed 10 new members.  A busy year was reported with action  taken by the boardN_n a number of matters. There had been a great deal of correspondence regarding the Halfmoon Bay  wharf and the latest report from the department of highways indicated that a  new wharf head 40 foot by 80 foot was  scheduled for 1974-75. !  One of the disappointments of the  year had "been,the matter of the foreshore lease at Secret Cove granted to  Robert .Gibson   and   transferred   to   the  teachers.. Because of a budget reduction  . being   pumped  up   in  the   dentist's  "'" "       "'"'* chair. I'd spent so many��hours inv  his chair that I was known as the  fastest rinser and spitter in the West.  Latterly though; my teeth had:j  kept quiet so I'd figured'what the  heck, they can go their way and I'll  go mine. If they'd had any nerve  they'd have rebelled long ago. But  they didn't They just sat there like  a row of tombstones gradually weathering away.x     -  They developed a few cracks and  chips. Nothing terribly ostentatious,'  but I did chew them out about it.  One morning I was eating breakfast and bit on something extra-or-  dinarily hard. Placing it in my  napkin I found it was a chunk of  silver. Gosh, I thought, the cereal  companies are finally putting some  worthwhile trinkets in their boxes.  Then,'running the tip of my tongue  over an upper molar I found it had  been completely excavated.  Tiny bits of enamel were grating  about in my mouth. It was True Grit  all right!  "Hey you guys, pull yourselves  together. If there's anything I despise, it's seeing a bunch of veteran  molars going" to pieces over some  Team. I mean, Where's your fighting spirit?

My choppers and I would have  to part.  to $50,000, the remedial reading teachers  were released. In addition, $840 tuition  fbr each Indian student is paid to the  provincial government by the federal department, although, he, said, the amount  may soon be increased.,  Banner had copies of a brief entitled  Indian Control of Indian Education and  a letter from Minister Jean Chretien accepting the brief's policies and instructing  that they be implemented as quickly as  possible. ���  Teddy joe, Sechelt Indian band council member and one of two B.C.. representatives, worked out the policy statement,  along with other members of the National  Indian Brotherhood's education committee.  The instructions mean that there will  -no longer be two-party contracts between  the school district and. the federal department of Indian affairs. From now on,  all contracts will be between three parties���the school board/the department  of Indian affairs and the band, with final  acceptance to come from the band council. *'"..'  Any submissions from the school board  to the department of Indian affairs for  capital contributions for new, improved  facilities, such as rebuilding a new secondary school, must first be negotiated  with and approved by the band, Banner  said.  MacLeod expressed concern over the  apparent lack of communication and he  felt that the failure of the department  to make these developments known  would hinder the school board's ability to  make decisions effectively.  Banner replied that, although the final  acceptance of the policies was very re-  cent, the department had informed the  board last year that contracts would not  be renewed without negotiations with  the band. He suggested that perhaps the  district superintendent had not believed  that without band involvement, there  would be no contract.  Band manager Clarence Joe agreed  that, in the past, there had been a lack  of communication between the board and  the band and that little recognition was  given to the band's special interests in  education. He hoped the situation could  soon be improved.  Joe  replied to  a question  about  the  . original source of the federal funds by  saying that Indians pay taxes like everyone else, although some of those taxes  go into special funds.  All groups indicated a general preference for the community school concept  that encourages broader participation by  the public through use of school sports  and library facilities and adult education  programs. It was also generally agreed  that the Elphinstone site is not suitable  for this type of development.  A discussion of alternatives within  the school system was proposed for the  next forum in October. Education commissioner Dr. John Bremer will be invited.  Grant reported that all shops are being  used to their full capacity. The music,  science and commerce programs are functioning as well as before the fire and  the library is operational and even better equipped.  He said the home economics area is  smaller and has less storage space as  the old stoves and sewing machines have  been replaced with new, more efficient  equipment.  Classroom space in the old annex is  being used extensively but this had been  anticipated to some extent before the  fire.  Chairman of the forum Norm McLcl-  land reported that he had contacted the  RCMP and Lockstead about reducing the  speed limit to 15 mph in front of the  school.  ��_  down last month  THERE has been a let-up in building on  the Sunshine Coast, Fred Reyburn,  building inspector for the Sunshine Coast  Regional District- reported to ^-he board  of directors, at their Sept. 27 meeting,  but the year has still set records' for...  values.  Even though building decreased in  September, it is: still above September  1972. Last month building permits taken  out in the regional district totalled 31  for $480,000 in value compared to the  same month a year ago with 26 permits  for a total value of $374,000. There were  104 inspections last month compared to  51 a year ago.  September shows Area B (Halfmoon  Bay) with, the greatest construction value  of $222,000 with Area A (Pender Har-  - bour-Egmont) next with $112,000. Areas  A, B 'and C (Selma Park-Davis Bay) account for $380,000 compared to only  $100,000 for areas D (Roberts Creek), E  ' (Gibsons Heights) and F (Langdale-Port  Mellon-Gambier).  ��� With its $480,000 value, 1972 was the  highest figure for September in the regional district, except for 1968 when it  totalled $508,180, since the building inspections started in September 1967.  Breakdown of building values by areas  for September are as follows:  Area A $112,000: Area B $222,000;  Area C $46,000; Area D $47,000; Area E  $25,000 and Area F $28,000.  Building values for the nine months  ending September are $5,539,500 exceeding last year's record total for the entire  year of $4,160,100.  the association's protests had-been strongly supported by residents oi/ Secret Cove  and  by - a  number  of  organizations  on  the Sunshine Coast, it wa^ obvious that  the present government had no intention  of cancelling the lease.  The  association  had, however, received    assurance    that  there  would  be an examination of the  situation before any renewal of the lease.  Rita Relf, regional board representative, reported on the land freeze and rezoning at present-being proposed by. the  regional district. This follows the report  of a survey carried out in the early part  of this year by a group of graduate students of the School of Community and  Regional Planning; The object of the survey was to find out how the residents of  /the area wanted it  to develop  and the  , assessment which they have now presented   indicates   a*    wish  for   "controlled  ' growth."   In order * to .achieve  this,  the  regional board has now imposed a land  freeze!" and   have   drawn   up   a  plan   in  which a number of areas have been zoned"  "agricultural." A public hearing will be  held on this matter on Oct. 17. As any  objections must be made to the regional  board -within  30  days,  Miss   Relf  suggested   that   residents   lose   no   time  in  visiting   the   regional   district   office   to  check  whether there, is  any  change  in  zoning affecting their properties.  Secretary Don Pye reported that there  had been considerable correspondence  with the highways department during  .he year regarding much needed repairs  on Redrooffs Road, Frances Avenue and  Eureka Subdivision, but it appeared that  there was no money budgeted for the  work this year. Next year's highway  budgets will be planned in November  and the board agreed to press the mat-  - ter again before that time. ��� * ..  There was also strong criticism1'at  the meeting about two stumps at the  corner of Frances Avenue and Redrooffs  Road which hampered visibility, and  about "spot oiling" on gravel roads where  there was so little gravel that' there was  nothing to grade.  Opinions were expressed that the  Halfmoon Bay area always receives the  tail-end of road servicing which operates  out of Gibsons," with the result that salt  is invariably used up by the time the  salt truck reaches Halfmoon Bay and the  sanding trucks don't reach the area until  late afternoon.  -While these matters will be taken up  by the association, residents are urged  to send individual complaints to the  highways department with copies to B. A.  By Chambers  Telegram to Barrett  deplored ferry strike  SECHELT���Pender Harbour and Egmont  Chamber of Commerce and Sechelt  and District Chamber of Commerce felt  so strongly about last August's ferry  strike that they jointly sent a strong telegram to Premier Dave Barrett.  President Morgan Thompson, of the  Sechelt hamber, said that the telegram  was sent jointly to indicate to the government that the strike worked a hardship on the Sunshine Coast. Richard F.  Atwood, president of the Pender Harbour  and Egmont Chamber and Morgan Thompson, president of the Sechelt Chamber  signed the telegram.  Following is the text of the telegram  dated August  18: '  The Pender Harbour and Egmont  Chamber of Commerce and the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce wish to make the  following statement relative to the cur  rent ferry strike. y  1. The Sunshne Coast is more dependent on the ferry system than any other  major area in the province. We have no  alternate means of access and the economy of the area is almost totally dependent on tourism. From what we read and  hear the government thinks the ferries  only go to Vancouver Island.  2.The troubles with the ferries last  spring caused our tourist season to be  down from previous years and the current strike has effectively killed the season two months early.  3. We expect pur elected government  to act in our behalf to end this strike  now and take immediate action to insure  our access to the rest of the province is  secure in the future.  4. We are joining with the chambers  on the Island in urging everyone to express themselves to you on this situation.  -DRIVI  TRUCKS  SUNSHINE RENTALS  Phone:  885-2528 or 886-2848  ��WI_UI__IIIWI,l��ll��IUIIVMUMI<|iam<m______^_.._..._.��.^  \__-^C  aocirci  !

Vera  IT GIVES me much pleasure to take this  opportunity, on behalf of the people  of the Mackenzie constituency, to congratulate the Hon. Walter Stewart Owen  on his .appointment as Lietuenant Governor. I would like also to express my  personal satisfaction^ with the ambitious  program of legislation outlined in his  opening speech,     yxy.  I am in complete agreement with our  government's expressed intentions to  place in a position of top priority, legislation which will assist and encourage those  Whose labour produces the food, the  goods, and the services whieh form the  basis for our enviable standard of living  in this province today.  As a member of this government with  some legislative experience behind us,  I recognize the complexities with which  our cabinet ministers must deal in framing such vital legislation. I recognize also,  that the prograh. of legislation we are  undertaking is a most ambitious one and  its debate will constitute aN heavy work  load for us all.  I have expressed my personal satis--  faction with the legislative priorities for  this session as outlined in the Lieutenant-  Governor's opening speech. If eel, however, that I would be doing less than my  duty, if I did not respond positively to  his challenging comment that it is our  responsibility to ensure "that the voices  of our citizens are heard loud and.clear  through their legislators". It is because I  believe that my constituents concern must  be expressed in this house, that I intend  to speak of problems in transportation,  industrial development, local governments, and land use.  In speaking of transportation, let me  first say to the honourable ministers of  transportation and communication, and the  "honourable minister of highways that  their efforts on behalf of the travelling  public are appreciated. Improvements to  the ferry service and highways, have been  noted and commented upon in the local  press. However, growth demands more  and better facilities and growth is occurring rapidly in Mackenzie. Transportation remains one of the most basic problems to the residents of my constituency.  This does not mean that t favour the  spending of millions of dollars on these  facilities without careful overall planning.  I must report to you that there are a  great "many people in my . constituency  who are greatly concerned about the possible effects of improved transportation^  to the areas:, as yet relatively unspoiled,  in which they-live. This is a complex matter and it is clear that improved trans-,  portation Which is made necessary by  growth will.in turn be responsible for fur- .  ther growth in any areas made more accessible. Planning is imperative.  There are, however, certain * adjustments which could be-made, particularly  to the ferry service, which would assist  residents in times of peak load on the  system. It has been noted that much of  the overload problem is caused.by the  movement of trucks, trailers and campers.  Studies have been made and suggestions  are being received-for the improvement of  the service.  A year- ago I spoke in this house of  the need for the planned development  of industry in the central coast area and  I called for a systematic survey of -its  resource potential. Since that. time I  have served oil the standing committees  for forestry and fisheries; I know that the  jjob of planning for industrial develop-  iment in this area is underway; I also  jcnow that much more time will he required to do the job.j We must ensure  that economic development does not. occur at the expense of that most valuable  asset, our environment. We must also  ensure that no industrial, development is  allowed to threaten our other important  resources such as fisheries.  Nevertheless, if I am to speak for the  people of Mackenzie I must voice. their  concern. The industrial development of  the central coast has long been neglected.  Ways must be found soon to assist the  people in the economically depressed  areas of the coast to achieve a more productive and rewarding way of life. That  this government has made some significant moves in this direction is appreciated. During "my recent visits to Ocean  Falls I have been happy to observe that  the operation there is. a thriving one and  that the 900 people whose homes and  way of life have been saved are determined to show that it will continue to  be an asset, to the people of B.C. and  that Ocean Falls will continue to function in this important role as a centre  Pago 8-4 The' Peninsula Times   .   Wednesday, October 3, 1973  land use are complex -and will require  time to solve, but I must report that there  is a groy/ing concern in .my constituency  that the land should be put to good and  -proper juse. ^.      I '  < I believe that more, provisions, must  be made soon for individuals to lease  land for residential and farm'purposes:  Before "closing, I would on behalf'of  the people of my riding, congratulate the  new appointments to the cabinet and I  feel-that I speak for the majority of my  constituents when I say that I am particularly pleased about the new ministeries  of housing and consumer affairs. These  are both areas of concern in Mackenzie,  and these appointments reflect our government's concern in these matters.  for hospital, police ahd educational serv-  ices\ for the central coast area.  Ijjocal government continues to he an  issue of great concern to many ot my  constituents: Whereas we have mbv^d to  improve the regulations with regard to  the franchise so that it is now possible  for tenants/to participate more fully in  local government,/'actionNis still required  to make it practicable for them to do  -b. Registration is still the responsibility  of the. tenant and often the problems of  registration are a dis-incentive to their  participation in the electoral process. It  is my belief that the role of local government is  one  of  increasing  importance.  We'cannot move wisely on matters of  ��� land use or education without. the ihtel-  .ligent assistance of local government. I  believe that we must move quickly to  encourage the widest possible participation in government" at this level.:~"  - In  the  past-year    this  government  moved decisively to* protect potential and  existing farm and park land.  Although  the forms of the legislation were not completely understood by the people of B.C..  at the time, it is,now apparent that the  vast majority of our people agree with  this legislation. There is a related concern, however, which is being widely expressed by my constituents with regard to  land use. Over the past 10 to 12 years the  cost  of   purchasing  land  has   increased  enormously. In some cases land which  sold for $200 per acre is now $2,000 per  acre. Furthermore, there are many parts  of my  constituency where land is  not  available at any price. Private companies,  many of  them foreign    interests, hold  large tracts of land for speculative purposes.

I was born there and spent many  happy boyhood days there and would like  to have a part of me to always be there."  This was duly done, but a couple of  weeks later the sergeant appeared again  and told the pilot that gangrene had set  in and the left leg would have to come  off.  "We British are a brave and .plucky  lot," said the airman. "But will you do  me a favor? When you take off the left  leg, will you please drop it on Oxford?  Spent some of my happiest student days  there and I'd like a part of me to always be in Oxford."  This was duly done. Later the'sergeant appeared again, and mournfully announced "Your right arm, herr flyer...  I'm sorry but it will have to come off."  "We British are a brave and plucky  lot," said the RAF, and would the Teutons do him a favor and drop said arm  in London, where he had spent many  happy hours and achieved some of his  greatest   successes.  The sergeant appeared the following  morning with the sad news that Herr  Commandant had refused permission to  drop the arm in London.  "Why not?" cried the brave and plucky  pilot.

No pay for the secretary or the two trust-  fees. We held a meeting and hired a wonderful teacher at the enormous salary of  |$b per month to teach 49 children all  grades: I laugh now when I think of the  '��� salaries teachers receive today. The teacher  we had  walked from my  house,  lyhere she boarded, two miles to the lit-  tjfc red school house on the hill for six  jjj-ears and only missed school two days  on account of sickness.    ;  ** Times were so bad  financially that  some of the kids would have no breakfast some days and Mrs. Mayne and the  other ladies in Sjechelt would provide hot  C<3coa and cakes for the small children  (h. the cold mornings at the school. The  school trustees and secretary would col-  pet from door-to-door before Christmas  t$ provide toys for each of the children  In; the district and the toys would be giv-  fnl out at the Christmas concert by an old-  tir(\er who would act as Santa Claus. Lots  l6|. fun at the concerts.  ���-.���''Most of the kids.who attended school  jfn those far-away days are married with  i|ds of their own but they still remem-  ylljer' the hard-up  days and the happy  fifties they had. The next event was bring-  $ig a doctor to Sechelt. This I did and  'Hjjr. Arnold Holm stayed at my home and  practiced medicine. He was a real good  ^pctor and stayed for about four years.  ^|1 wrote the provincial government and  had Dr. Holm appointed medical health  jj&j. cer for the district and also department of veterans affairs medical officer  and department of Indian affairs medical  officer and coroner. These departments  all paid a salary for his service.  jtlfThe nearest  doctor was in  Gibsons  and it cost $15 a visit fo Dr. Fred Inglis  to attend a patient.  ^.The next event was the formation of  went back to Vanc-uver. , ^  -1 asked my good friend, theMate Mary  garet Lamb, who was always ready to  help, if she would like to assist in this  work qnd she and I canvassed the Sechelt district and we were very surprised  to find out how good people are for 4  Next I was asked to be a board mem-   real worthy cause. Each year .Margaret  Branch ,140 Canadian Legion and soon after formation of the Branch I was appointed secretary which. I held for 17  years. Later I was appointed chairman of  the Legion Poppy Fund and this position  was to look after our poor veterans which  the government should have done.  ber for the VON (VictoriayOrder of Nurses) as the poor people in the district had  no one to care for them while sick. We  managed to get a very good VON nurse  and what a blessing for the poor people  during those days of depression. It cost  the people nothing for VON visits if you  hod no money and the nurse would call  each day. What a wonderful service.'  In 1939 I was appointed stipendiary  magistrate. tor the whole district from  port Mellon (Seaside Park) to Lasqiieti  Island and I Mirould journey forth with  the provincial police, Sgt. Douglas Sutherland to hold court in the various places.  There was only ono policeman in whole'  district. I had this job for years with no  pay or allowances.  Ne&t I was on the hospital board .to  find a location for a hospital and together with the lata Rev. E. Baxter and  the late Al Jackson we walked.all over  Sechelt looking but we could get no  money in those days and s(^ the hoard  was disbanded.   r  My next assignment 'was the CNIB,  Canadian National Institute for the Blind.  My friend Percy Ogilvie (himself  blind from the effects of being a prisoner of war in the First War) visited  Sechelt and asked if I would take over  the district of Sechelt and see what I  could do to get donations for this worthy  cause. He left a bundle of receipts and  and I would trudge the village for donations. She was a wonderful person. She  never turned down any work that would  help others.  / / -i-frj.
