'Inversion of privacy  Disclosures act forces  alderman to resign post  SECHELT���Bernel Gordon, refusing to  be a victim of the "aspersive Public  Officials Disclosure Act" resigned as a  member of Sechelt village council last  week.  Gordon's resignation became irrevocable when he turned it into village clerk  Neil Sutherland. According to the Municipal Act the resignation becomes effective when the successor is sworn in or  according to the date stated in the resignation. Gordon made his resignation  effective immediately.  In making the announcement, Mayor  Ben Lang said that he had a "very sad  letter" to read. He said that he tried to  talk Gordon out o�� resigning but added,  "He has his reasons and they' are quite  legitimate."  Lang said that he had written to his  own lawyer asking for his opinion on  the act, which Lang termed "an invasion of privacy beyond the beneficial  needs of the general public..."  Other aldermen at the meeting made  little comment on the matter.  Gordon's letter Is as follows: "It is  with regret that I tender my resignation  as alderman.  "I will not be a victim of the aspersive  Public Officials' Disclosure Act and there  is no alternative but to resign.  "I am sorry to take this action with  resultant' byelection expenses forced on  the village.  "I have enjoyed the work and it has  been a pleasure to work with you and  all members of council."  Neil Sutherland, village clerk, told  The Times that nominations for the post  must be held within 45 days.

"A girl and two guys were floating  in the water with a dog, a seat and some  debris. There was a cat trying to climb  up the piling."

Harry Almond, Area 'D' director, said  that no one in his area was interested in  supporting tourism.  "It's politically unacceptable to raise  funds through taxation for tourism," said  J. H. Tyner, Area 'A*.  Under other business, the board agreed  to prepare a resolution aimed at protecting ancient sites on the lower Sunshine  Coast.  The move followed receipt of a letter  from the Archeological Society of B.C.  recommending that the board "endeavour to prevent developers from damaging important ancient sites in line with  the revised Archeological and Historical  Sites Protection Act."  A motion to this effect had already  been passed by the Okanagan-Similka-  meen Regional District, said the society.

Mayor Wally Peterson felt adoption of  the act would bo tantamount to calling  elected representatives "a bunch of  thieves." '  Aid, Ted Hume, however, maintained  that "an honest man has nothing to  foar."  Peterson said: "I really don't know  tho reason for the act. Elected representatives take an oath of office that contains  almost everything in the act."  Aid. llumo snld ho supported the act  tho way It had been presented. "If you  havo nothing to hide, you have nothing  to disclose. I don't think the act Is calling anyono a bunch of crooks."  Peterson felt the act discriminated  against professional people, who would  bo debarred from running for office because their professional onthes'would not  allow them to sign the act,  "I think this is extremely unfair, be-  cnuso wo will be shutting out some of  the most Intelligent people," ho sold, "I  don't like to see discrimination on who  oun run for office and who can't."

Think about this  ON Saturday Sunshine Coast voters  . have an opportunity for a bargain.  They can have, for an average annual  cost of $15 per taxpayer, a multipurpose arena-auditorium���arts and crafts  complex in a magnificent 115-acre setting. A maximum,of three mills is being asked for the recreation centre.  Even with Pender Harbour opting out,  the millage will raise $125,000 annually which is considered more than enough  and with promised federal and provincial  aid and grants it will be closer to two  mills!  The. 115-acre site has been donated  and an estimated $40,000 from government grants has already been spent at  the centre. Think about that.  According to members of the recreation committee,. who have worked  hard to present a fair picture of a much  needed project, the average taxpayer  will pay $15 per year. It appears mat  a wonderful opportunity is at hand.  The recreation centre can become  the heart of the greater community. A  place for people to meet, to play, to  talk; to see and to be seen. To enjoy.  It's possible vandalism will even decrease. It's possible juvenile crime will  decrease.  Remember this. A privately funded  recreation centre will be one for just  a few. By its very cost it will he exclusionary. Only the wealthy would be able  to-get any use out of it. We need a facility that will benefit the entire community regardless of where they are from  or who they are.  This will be the last chance to vote  for the centre under the present setup. Members of the committee have indicated to The Times that if the project  fills again, they will not resurface. However, they urge that before casting a  vote, everyone should look over the  site.  A recreation centre is needed on the  Sunshine Coast. The Times recommends  a yes vote on Saturday.    .  Centre rumors denied  Editor,' ^/Thnes^ _ '     * , :   .  SLr-rAnother f$ls�� rumor reached my  ears today that/really makes me wonder  how far people .will.go to discredit what  is a simple/attempt to improve the community.  The story goes' that my husband, and  other members of the recreation centre  committee, own- a large block of '.land in  the park vicinity" and plan to subdivide at  huge profits once the centre is built. This  is not true and ,1a very discouraging to  hear after watching them work so hard on  the pcoject.fof years.:  a good example inasmuch as it contains  one item of truth never before uttered  by, any other supporter of the centre.  The bleeding hearts who from the outset  ;have used theirs (arid others) "kids" as  ' cover for then1 own freeloading ambitions  have had their cover blown by your frank  statement that: "The need for a recrea-.  tion centre is OBVIOUS (my capitals).  PEOPLE (again, my capitals) have more  leisure time and more is coming." Thank  you for confirming a belief which many  of us who oppose the centre concept have  held right from the start: That the real  pressure for the project is from and for  the ADULTS! The "kids" are just inci-  This may, be hard for the cynical to . dental pawns in the game and the game  believe, but, whether<,they are right or |which I hear most frequently mentioned  Hasty legislation  IT'S unfortunate that Bernel Gordon  resigned his position as Sechelt alderman because of the Public Officials Disclosure Act. v -.  Gordon resigned his post because the  act would require that all elected public officials and senior government officials declare their assets and liabilities  and those of their spouses and their dependent children. Gordon feels that the  act is an unwarranted invasion of privacy and he wanted no part of it so he  resigned. Consequently the village of  Sechelt must go to the expense of finding another alderman to fill the second portion of his two-year term.  As it turned out Gordon acted too  hastily because Attorney-General Alex  Macdonald, in introducing the bill for  its second reading, hoped each party  would speak only once on the bill and  allow it to be adjourned for further con-;  sideration in the fall.  This is another incident of the government's rushing into law ill-conceived  legislation only to find that it is full  of loopholes. The government obviously does not give enough consideration  to these bills before presenting them to  the legislature. Because of the action, the  village) of Sechelt has lost a capable alderman and there is no way for him to  chahge his mind and finish out his term  because  his resignation is irrevocable.  It. would not be so bad if it was a  single incident but it appears the New  Democrats, in their 2$6al to bring Utopia  to the ��� province, are dropping the ball  .along the way. Their legislation, much  of which is basically good, leaves lots  to be desired.  We question their haste.  As they will be the government for  the next four years, we feel that they  should give more thought to some of the  legislation they wish enacted.  < The disclosures act is not all bad.  . Pat McGeer liberal, Vancouver-Point,  Grey) refers to the act as "pioneering  legislation" and he praised the fact that  details of holdings anil interests need not  be revealed and saidv the legislation  would protect public officials by acting  as a "deterrent to witch hunts and  rumors."  Hugh Curtis, (Conservative, Saamch  and die Islands) said the bill would go  a long way to ending the "whispermg"^  that plaques municipal council members. Curtis is mayor of Saanich. Even  James Chabot (SCColumbia River) is  not 100 per cent opposed to the bill although he feels it's too inclusive.    ���   ���";  At least the governmenr1s^go1n| jS>$  take another, look at this one and that],  has to be a step in the right direction.-'  We're ut ero&srowis  FUTURE    development   of the Sun-  7 shine Coast has long been an inexhaustible   subject  for  debate   amongst  local residents.  Many of the long-time Suncoasters  protest that they came here to avoid  precisely the type of development and  accelerated pace of life that is forecast  for the area.  Others, notably young married and  relative newcomers, welcome the prospect of controlled development as a  means to upgrade the amenities of the  Peninsula���both socially and through the  increased tax revenue that would be  available for public spending.  Both points of view undoubtedly  have merits. But for better or for worse,  'development', in whatever light we  choose to view that rather vague term,  is coming at us full tilt.  Regional district planner Ed Cuy-  Hts noted in his report to the recent  board meeting:  "If the creating of new parcels by  subdivision is any indicator of development activity on the coast, then the area  appears to be growing in leaps and  bounds."  Again using the regional district as  a barometer, over-the-counter business  is at an all-time high. As administrator  Charles Gooding pointed out in his report:  "The load on the board's staff during  the past few weeks has been the heaviest  in the history of tho district."  Increased traffic, he said, was partially due at an increased number of  telephone enquiries.  If further evidence of the growth Of  the Peninsula were required, building  nnd plumbing inspector, F. A, "Rcyburn  provided it in his report to the board.  Workload in his department, ho said,  wns an "impossible, situation."  The number of counter and telephone enquiries arc even "causing delays in tho issuing of permits nnd answering of correspondence."

BONNIE PAETKAIT  Sechelt  Ferry elevators urged  Editor's not��: The following letter was  addressed to Robert Strachan, minister  ol highways. A Copy of the letter was  submitted to The Times by the author.  Mrs. F. Olson.. president Pender Harbour Branch 80. chairman of the Sun*  shine Coast Regional Council, Senior  Citisens' Association of B.C.  Dear. Sir: >  A meeting of the Sunshine Coast Regional Council of the Senior Citizens'  Association of B.C., comprising of the  Sechelt, Pender Harbour' and Powell  River branches, was held on April 2 at  which time a firm endorsement was given  to the Sechelt branch's previous request  to you for an elevator or escalator and  toilet facilities on the car- deck of the  Langdale-Horseshoe Bay ferries.  As you will know from previous correspondence, these are a real need for  the elderly and those with physical disabilities and promote a necessity to conform with your viewpoint that passengers  are not encouraged to remain on . the  car deck. In the light of modern technological ideas of changing the structure  of the ferries, we feel that it should hot  be a difficult problem to resolve���particularly in regard to the restroom facilities.  '-* ���..;.-  The council also felt your attention  should be drawn to the very tight docking of automobiles as, in many instance,  passengers are unable to get out of their  cars since the doors do not open wide  enough���either because" of the posts or;  the close proximity of the cars on either,  side. This would constitute a real hazard'  in case of an accident or fire;. It was'  pointed out that this condition prevails;  on. all the ferries to and from the Penin- ,  sula���ie: Earl's dove and Westview services as well as Langdale.  Our members  earnestly request that  you examine further these conditions  which affect the general public as well  as the elderly and the infirm.  Pender Harbour (Mrs.) F. OLSON  flee, centre support urged  Editor, The Times,  Sir: Hoping as a parent that all will  turn out and vote yes for the recreation  centre.  Most adults can afford to buy booze  all year round, sit in > the Legion or Wakefield. I'm sure if we can afford these ,  pleasures we can afford the extra taxes  a rec centre will cost. Instead of supporting our government liquor store, let's  support our children. '  BOBBIE BODNAREK  Box 491, Sechelt  Volunteers appreciated  Editor, The Times,  Sir: Again it is time for a few plaudits. Since the last referendum, much work  has been done by many people. Too many  to thank individually, but we would like  to thank a few publicly for their recent  ' weekend's work:  Gravel Truks were donated by: Shoai t  Developments, Eric Inglis, Swanson Bros.,  The drivers giving their time were:  Kim   Inglis,  Bob  Jnnls,  Ron  Marshall,   ,  Colin Spencer, Roy Walker.  Barry Pearson and his caterpillar  tractor; Toby Millage and his b'ackhoe;  Ed. Lucas from Premier Sand and Gravel  with the loader; Coast Paving and their  lowbed truck; Ron Robinson m road construction boss.  Also, about 700 school children have  been  tnken  to visit  the site.  The  bus  drivers giving their time were: BUI Rank-   ���'  In,   Walter   Play),  Charlie  Carter,   Jim  Ironside.  What an effort! Thank you all.  E. J. PAETKAU, co-chairman,  Recreation centre committee"  Battle lines drawn  Editor,  The Times, '  Sir: Although H\i quite obvious that tho  buttle lines are clearly drawn in tho ,  current recreation centre controversy and  letters pro or con won't have much effect  on the final decision, nevertheless statements in your editorials plus those from  other partisan sources do and arc (by  Tho Times), calculated to provoke comment.  ,  Your editorial in last week's issue Is   (  this is ca $ZM SPOT!

The second part of the editorial then  goes on to mention that "a child who is  tired from hiking... is less likely to want  to prowl." Without dwelling too much on  that statement my only comment is .that  in my experience the last thing these  "children" seem to have any desire to  do is to do anything which might make  them "tired." I am continually turning a  blind eye to teenagers whose thumb appears to be the most active part of their  -languid bodies!, Not that it was always  like that, not until I discovered after  succumbing to their free-riding techniques that the extent of their tiring journey was in most instances not more than  around four blocks! That far I would  walk myself.  Turning to The Times of March 2$  an interesting alternative to the proposed  luxury recreation centre out in the middle of nowhere is presented on page 1  of Section B. Here are two recreational  projects for CHILDREN ONLY which do  deserve public support; one is to be in  Gibsons and the other at Davis Bay located as they will be right in the heart of  the communities they are intended to  serve, they will be easily accessible to  the "kids" without necessitating long car  trips; and without having to wait until  their parents can wheel them to a distant recreation centre: the same "kids"  will be able to use their legs 'to get them  there. According to the medics, walking:  is one of the finest (and cheapest) forms  of exercise.        :,-> / ',''.'--'���'���'��� ::'v\y";'f::"  Finally, in your issue of April 4 you  "expose" the pollution caused by the pulp  mill at Port Mellon: Please���don't knock,  them too hard as if Cafor did give up in  disgust as the result of further taxation  due to the imposition of a recreation  centre three mill levy, all that we could  get stuck with could be���another pulp  mill, if we were lucky! And if the NDP  government didn't buy it then the Sunshine'Coast would be stuck with the.  ,..heavy load of taxation which Port Mellon now carries.  Gibsons E.

Bert Slade, Area 'C, said "It's a case  of emergency.  Chairman Lome Wolverton agreed  with West. "We would like to know the  disadvantages, - too."  Directors Almond and Slade were appointed to a select committee to look into  the proposition.  A request from Area'C residents for  additional street lighting on roads running  parallel, to Highway 101 was referred to.  Slade for consideration.  "There is no doubt that we need more  lights in the area, but if we go to the  expense, we're going to. have more people  wanting the same thing," said Slade.  Wolverton rioted that the residents  concerned were already paying the mill  rate for lighting.  He added: "I feel the area should be  consistent in lighting spread. I think Director Slade should decide what lighting  intensity he wants in his district."  - Slade said he would like to look at  the overall lighting situation a little further before making any recommendations.  ) NOTICE  Pender Harbour - Egmont Area  For Insurance off all kinds  N   Phone your Resident Agent  JOHN BREEN LTD.  883-27941(24 hours)    '  REPAIRS  Stones and  Fine Gifts  :~a Specialty  9  100% WATERPROOF  WATCHES BY ROLEX  ��� ENICAR WATCHES  Order Your Welch's  Easter Baskets Now!  SECHELT JEWELLERS  Sechelt, B.C.  885-2421  Brownie revel date  mav be moved ahead  SECHELT���Fourteen    members    of the  Ladies Auxiliary to Guides and  Brownies gathered at Betty Powers" home  recently for their April meeting.  Commissioner Harriet Newton was in  the chair. A possible change in the date  of the Brownie revel scheduled now for  June 2 was reported. Further developments will depend on whether the date  is moved ahead or not.  The First Sechelt Brownie pack has  , finished their craft projects for the forthcoming tea, reported their fairy godmother, Mrs. Lynn Jorgensen. Several  golden hand awards will be coming up  as well as proficiency badges. Mrs. Flum-  merfelt will test their sign language.  The First Wilson Creek Guides godmother, Mrs. Gwen Robinson, said the  girls had been on a hike on Sunday tak-,  ing along a foil wrap lunch which they  cooked On the trail. - Joan Cunningham  will teach a first aid course from the  St. John's Ambulance  Corps.  First-Sechelt Guides are having work  parties on Saturdays at their Capt. Jean  McLennan's home in West Sechelt. They  are making handicrafts for sale at the  tea. ^:-y^yi,^^yri-i-^---  ... .The.tea, which will revert ;to the more,  elegant teas such as have been enjoyed  in the past, will be held at the old Legion  Hall May 24. Convener, Mrs. Lori Bry-  son, would appreciate donations to the  white,elephant, bake table and the gift  tree, besides the sewing, knitting, novelties and plants.  This past weekend a pack holiday was  held at Camp Olave brownie hide-a-way.  District guider in charge, Mrs. Donalda  . Sigouin, said the theme was circus, and  who put whom through the hoops we'll  never know. Helping the guider were  Mrs. Pat Nestman, Mrs. Dianna Young,  Mrs. Sue Frizzell, Mrs. Florence Tait,  Debbie  and  Lorraine  Nestman.  Thursday saw two more girls enrolled  at the First Wilson Creek guide meeting.  They were Sherry Eberle, Sylvia Webb  and the honors were done by Commissioner Harriet Newton. A demonstration  of flower arranging was given by Mrs.  Ann Martin of Ann-Lynn Florists.  May meeting will be held at the home  of Mrs. Mary Flay.  Familiar phrase heard  in Gibsons council  GIBSONS-rCouncil   recently   agreed K to  donate a $50 perpetual trophy to the  gold  tournament  slated   as   an   annual  event during Sea Cavalcade Week.  But Aid. Hugh Archer reported to  council's April 3 meeting that the Sea  Cavalcade committee had gone, a little  over budget in their choice,  The perpetual trophy chosen the committee had a $60 price tag, he said, with  an additional $8 miniature to be retained  by the winner.  Mayor Wally Peterson said council had  authorized only $50. So that was the limit.  Aid. Winston Robinson saved the day,-  however. "I think I can get them for  you wholesale," he said. ��� .-.������'"'  Council was suitably impressed. But  they all had just a trace of specticism in  '-their'eyes'as' if they'd heard that line  somewhere before!  BROWNIES HAD beautiful weekend,  at Camp Olave to practice their arts  crafts. Here Brownies from Sechelt  and Wilson Creek packs busily make  necklaces. The youngsters are surrounding deputy commissioner Don-  elda Sigouin, seated centre.

Recycle this Newspaper!  GARAGE      I  By ALLAN CRANE  TONIGHT, Nicholas and Alexandra  commences a four-day run at the  Twilight Theatre, April 11 to April 14.  Because of its length, this award-winning motion picture will start at 7:30  p.m. '  As this film is booked in the theatre's  regular program, regular adnjission  charges will pertain on the Wednesday  evening,  Next Wednesday, Kwahtahmoss Film  Society concludes its season with its 26th  performance, King of Hearts, a wild  comedy about a town run by lunatics in  which Alan Bates heads an international  ; cast. We are very pleased to be able to  end our season with this highly entertaining motion picture.  The setting for the film is a small  French town during World War I. The  townsfolk abandon the town in terror  when they learn that the fleeing Germans  have planted an enormous bomb there  in the hope of stopping their pursuers.  In their hoste to escape, they forget the  Inmates of the local insane asylum. Sent  to dismantle the bomb, Private'Plumpick  (Alan Bates) is amazed to find the town  populated with a duke and duchess, a  general, a bishop, and various citizenry.  Plumpick is named king of the community and told that he must take Coque-  licot, the toast of the local pleasure  dome, to wife as his queen.  The comedy possibilities are enormous, and they are brilliantly realized in  this fine motion picture, a merry melange  of wit and irony.- The film is in color  and wide-screen format and in an English version. We feel that, this film is n  fitting conclusion to our season-^a thoroughly enjoyable comedy which la not  without Its biting social comment.  Following King of Hoar to in the  Twilight Theatre's regular program is  otia ot the most enduring and bcst-lovcd  pictures of all time, winner of 10 academy awards, Gono With tho Wind to bo  screened Thursday, Friday and Saturday,  April II), 20 and 21. The film has outstanding performances from Lcidio How  ard, Vivian Leigh, Clark Gable and  Olivia de Havilland. Numerous people  will be going to see this film for a second or third time. A friend of mine in  England unblushingly admitted to hav-,  ing gone to see it for the ninth time  recently.  Originally made in 1939. in technicolor, the film has been painstakingly  rephotographed frame by frame from���the  original negative. Its vast Civil War  panoramas remain an impressive memorial to their designer. The film runs  for almost four hours.

Mrs. Gray was highly thought of by  'her colleagues, because on the day of _  her retirement, Mrs. Jean Stewart made  a survey of each department in the. hospital with the question: "When you think  , of Mrs. Gray what thought comes into  ; your mind?" The answers were so close  ��� together,* said Mrs. Stewart, that it was  -obvious that everyone would miss her.  j,,'    When Mrs. Stewart asked why she  would be missed the answers were var-  vs ied. Following are direct quotes.  '"'���   "She lends such a quiet dignity to  Nthe front office."  ; "She always smiled and said 'Good  ��� morning' to you."  "She never ever said anything bad  about anyone."  "I liked to hear her talk with her  \ Scottish accent."  {, "She was always willing to listen to  - you if you went to her with a problem,  , and 'always gave you good advice."  "She understood your position and  uwas willing to put in a good word for  ���you, if you deserved it."  "It just won't be the same without  her."  "She never lost her cool."  "If you 'really  got  stuck,  she' was  there."  "She was so encouraging when things  were difficult, like during the construction."  "She is the backbone of the hospital."  "- "She had her finger on the' pulse of  \the ^hospital."  "She is the glue that held the place  together."  "She has the most fantastic memory,  Strait talk  ��� by Joan Tractor  IND.  5ION can be a terrific thing.  aally when it comes to gardening and you're wandering 'round  the yard with a newly purchased  cherry tree, trying to decide where  to plant it. I spent a good part of  yesterday afternoon doing just that.  Experts, no doubt, would say you  (.should firsj^draw a.,plan.of"your  . 'existing grounds and decide on paper  1 where each Ifhing would go 'best,  taking into consideration the correct exposure and so on for the various plants.  The burlap-wrapped   roots   and  Jong trunk made the tree just un-  ; wieldy enough that it refused to  [Stand up on its own, so everytime  T wanted to see what it would look  like in a particular spot, I had to  first dig/ a hole. By the end of the  /afternoon I'd dug   about a dozen  holes in which to try our tree. The  .dog thought it was great fun and  figured I was "dog's best friend."  It was togetherness alright! As I  ,dug he'd follow along   filling the  .holes in.  By the time the kids got home  from school the yard looked like  , an ambitious gopher had had a field  day, or I'd been practising my golf  swing.  When I finally chose a place for  the delicately blossomed tree and  , gave it a proper burial, supper time  had arrived leaving me too tired to  whip up a gourmet's delight! So, we  had salad and hot dogs.  Afterwards, saucepan of weiner  water in hand, I whipped outside to  throw the liquid on the ground because it's usually a trifle greasy to  pour down the sink drain.  With great abandon, I tossed it  from the sundeck in the direction of  the woods.  Now how was I supposed to know  my husband was out there at that  precise moment gathering firewood?  The way things now stand in our  household, we "will never again  serve, or even say welnors.  you could ask her about something we  ordered five years ago andjjshe would  tell you where we bought it."  Her knowledge of administration and  accounting is second" to none.  "She has a tremendous memory bank"  "She is a barrel of wisdom."  "She has retained knowledge to a  degree that is almost unbelievable."  "She is so dependable, she. always  has a solution."  "She was fair-minded, quiet and  kind." '  "She has a marvellous sense of humor"  "She "can quote poetry like a poet."  "She is really intelligent."  "It would be wonderful if we could  record what she knew on paper, so that  we could retain the benefit of all that  knowledge." ,, -     ^  "I think these.quotes speak for themselves and,, any further words are unnecessary;" said Mrs. Stewart  Seniors Reno trip  held big success  SECHELT-~Thirty-five members of the  Senior Citizens' Association returned  home from a trip to Reno where they got  into the spirit of a holiday "by letting  their hair down."  Dave Hayward, coordinator' ��f the  event, said of the trip:  "Emery Scott was great with the  colorful stories and his songs and his  accordion kept us happy all the time.  He never appears to tire. Jack Bushell  was busy too. with some special tall tales  that kept us\in stitches.  "Everyone loved the driver, Lloyd  Enwright, who has worked for Adanac  several years. Instead of him entertaining us, we reversed the plan and he  was really happy. Many times during the  .week he-thanked us for being such a  "merry gang. As we were getting close  to Horseshoe Bay he said he' wanted to  make an announcement. He said: 'During.the years of my driving I have never  had a group of people who showed so  much happiness and I want to thank  you one and all for' bringing so much  joy to my life.*  "We all admired him. He studied the  history and geography of the United  States and was always anxious to show  us places of interest. Irene, the lovely  hostess, was very helpful too, with games  . and tender, loving care.  "We all. promised "to make  another  trip next winter."  m^MyyyyMyyyy-  ;>-���.,I;;.7 ,,������/���    <���������.*  ���-.���.j-'i .,����� .-������ ���   ���   -'��� ,*...���.

Olson  at  Silver Sands  on  April 2.1 '  The council consists of two delegates  from the Powell River, Pender Harbour  and Sechelt branches of the association.  In addition to the delegates, there were  three members of the Pender Harbour  branch present as visitors.  It was reported by Mrs. Wood, that  the seniors in Powell River were now  given the privilege of reduced fares on  the municipal buses. The resolutions submitted  by the Sechelt branch for. the  provincial convention in June were read -  and discussed, and' it was agreed that ,  a further letter be sent to the minister of  highways Robert Strachan, with the request that something be done about an  elevator or escalator as well as toilet  facilities on the car deck at the Langdale  ferries. The tight docking of cars on the  ferries; making it difficult for people to  get out their cars, was also to.be brought  to the minister's attention as it was. felt  that this created a hazard in the. case  of an accident.  - The  Powell River branch  secretary  stated' that restroom facilities were on the  car deck on the Westview Comox ferry.  General discussion took place on the  need for boarding homes and rest homes  'on the Peninsula for senior citizens, and  the organization of new branches. The  council's delegate" to the Howe Sound  regional council in May and the annual  meeting of all the regional' councils in  the province immediately prior to  the  provincial convention in June .was appointed: this to be Mrs. F. Olson, Pender  "Harbour Branch 80.  It was also agreed to invite Mrs. Laura  McWiUiams, the provincial president to  be present at the regional council's meeting in December, which it was planned  to hold in Sechelt.  The next meeting, at the invitation  of the Powell River branch, will take  place at the Marine Inn, Westview, on  Sept. 10. It will be a'luncheon meeting.

Rose Nicholson, Times staffer  just out'of Hie hospital following  surgery, has a comment for Morgan  Thompson. The patients really appreciate The Times in the hospital,  she says. She overheard several of  them talking about your weekly gift,  Morgan. For the uninitiated, Morgan  buys copies of The Times each week  and sends them to the patients with  his compliments.  i Still on^the appreciation circuit,  Wilson Creek Community Association members would like to say  "thankyew" to Bob Dodyk of Superior Paving, Gibsons, "for the very  generous donation of blacktopping  for the, tennis court."  St. Mary's Hospital Society's  membership meeting will be held  April 16, not the 12th as reported  in The Times last week. Everybody  can attend if they buy a $2 membership first. '  If any of The Times staffers go  , to Toronto they can get a free ride  on the subway. Gibsons office gal,  Sylvia Maclean, in counting the receipts from the ferry box papers,  came across a subway token "just  about the size of a dime."  Oarlene Peterson of Gibsons  wants to start a Teen TOPS club.  This would include teens and pre-  teens, she said. If you're interested,  phone 886-7025 or 886-7235..  Bart Duteau of Gibsons Kinsmen  Club tells us that the annual blood  donors clinic will be held Thursday,  May 3 at the health centre from 3  to 4:30 and 6 to 7:30 p.m.  At least 100 donors are needed,  says Bart.  There are lots of naturalists on  the Sunshine Coast and Mrs. Madge  Bell, 885-9401, and Mrs. Lola Caldwell, West Sechelt, 885-9415, would  like to find some and hopefully form  a club here.  There are over 20 naturalists  clubs in B.C. and some have been  in existence since around the turn  of the ceuntry. What is a- naturalist  club? Just a means of bringing people together to learn more of the  natural world and to enjoy it more  ; fully. Hiking is the main activity but  walks, car trips and club visits are  popular.  Mrs. Bell tells us that tiiere are  several persons on the Sunshine  Coast who belong to the Vancouver  chapter because there isn't one here.  What more natural, place for a nat-  :uralists., clubf..,   ��� v   .; C ^ 2 .*  Sechelt's Sunshine Coast Lions  have tossed out a challenge to teenagers.  The Lions are presently clearing  Hackett Park and they don't think  that teenagers could do more work  than they. Actually, Neil Campbell,  chairman of the committee, better be  careful because on Sunday, teenagers already outnumbered the Lions  in clearing the park. Martin and  Trevor Swan, David N e u m a n,  Wayne Campbell and Duane Anderson, all teenagers, outnumbered  Lions last Sunday. Lions showing up  for work were Wes Klaus, Jim  Ridgowell, Brian Has loft and Neil  Campbell. That makes five to four.  Neil says that he hopes the park  will be cleared up enough by April  22 to hold an Easter egg hunt.  Seriously, the Lions have already  put in about 250 to 300 man hours  clearing the park which is a roarinff  effort.  Did you hear about the fellow  that is raising Shetland 'punies'? I  said, you mean ponies, don't you?  He replied, 'No, man. These are  really small.'  On Vancouver Island the Parks Branch  has built or Improved 20 mtleg of trail on  the Forbidden Plateau. Two loop sections  to Lake Helen Mackenzie and to Mount  Albert Edward (6,008 feet) and Castlecrag  Mountain (5,700 foot) are Included.  A UNIQUE multi-channel recorder  working in conjunction with a king  gas analyzer measuring breaming  capacity and used to help emphy-  zema and chronic bronchitis patients  is the latest gift to UBC\ from the  Tuberculous and Chest ^Disabled  Veterans' Association. Funds for the  $8,000 unit were raised through the  TB Vet annual mini auto licence tag  campaign. Viewing the device are  (from left) TB Vet general manager  John Griffiths, Dr. James Morton  of UBC and "patient" Louann Patterson.  Hometown paper entry  tori  says  By ZILLAH WOODWARD.

corted Mrs. Gray up to the bandstand,
looking gorgeous in her long blue evening
.'gown, where Brian Young -introduced

They, nearly all report wue  skies and plenty of sunshine.  Sporting real Mexican tans are Bill  and Evelyn Pallant who have returned  after an 8,000 mile trip in their truck  and camp$r,xa tour which took them four  months:'"'' " *'���'';        ' "~" . ' '  (: On the way.south, they visited friends  in' Washington' and Santa Monica, with a  stpp at Shields' date farm in Indio where  they saw a film on the love . life of the  date palm. These palms which now play  such an important part in the Californian  economy, were originally imported and  need special care. They have their roots  in water, their tops protected with paper  "hats" and they are hand-pollinated. The  Pallants toured the grading and packing  plants before proceeding by Pqlm Springs  to Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon, a  truly beautiful area with its red cliffs,  one of which, Bell Rock, provides the  background for many a western movie.  They made a stop at Phoenix and entered Mexico at Nogales.  Through Mexico, they travelled in  a leisurely fashion, covering sometimes  only 50 miles in ai day, Ytaking side trips  when the.roads permitted and visiting  the villages in preference to the cities.  They had many opportunities of seeing  how the Mexicans lived and would spend  considerable time talking to them. For  this Bill had a surprising talent, despite  the fact that he had a very United knowledge  of Spanish.  MEXICANS FRIENDLY  They found the Mexicans a warm and  friendly people and amazingly clean in  spite of the poor conditions in which  many of them live. In the villages their  washing is still done in a stream or lake,  the clothes being scrubbed on the rocks  and hung to dry on bushes, tufts of  grass or over rocks. Topolobampo, a fishing village near Los Mochis on the west  coast, was the only place where they  found the Mexicans cool to the gringo.  This was a company town with a shrimp  cannery and since there was no trailer  park, American tourists had parked on  the flats which had resulted in some resentment.  In their (travels, the Pallants came  across many EJido villages, government  communes, where the villagers v/ejee employed by the government. Their wages  wefre small and they lived in abode  shades, but modern machinery was available to tho communes and groat strides  had been made agriculturally. The staple  food of tho Mexican Indios is corn, which  Maria del Oro, an inland crater lake  ringed by mountains* Further south, they  made an overnight stop at San Bias on  the coast near Tepic. This is not a pq-  . pular place with tourists, being notorious  for the jejene, a tiny sand fly with, a  big bite. A month later they were still  scratching the bites which had developed  info water blisters on their legs, ankles  and feet They were recommended to  apply tequila and lemon which did relieve the itch to some extent, but .they  found the same medicine taken internally  at regular intervals -helped them to endure the discomfort. There were coconut  palms here and they enjoyed drinking  the milk with the straws thorough a hole  punctured  in the  shelL  HOLIDAYS WITH FRIENDS  The Christmas and New Year holidays  ���they celebrated with American friends  at La Penita, 45 miles from Puerta Vallarta. The weather here was hot and  humid and they spent their .time in bathing suits, swimming, relaxing and enjoying the magnificent sunsets. Their feet  were still so swollen with bites that they  were unable to join in the dancing at the  various festivities, but they enjoyed  watching the Mexicans dance. There were  banana and, tobacco plantations here and  brick making was ah important industry,  through here, as in many other seaside  towns, tourism is increasing yearly. The  Mexicans of La Penita live in straw huts  called palapas, and chickens, dogs and  pigs roam everywhere.  Puerta Vallarta, say the Pallants, is  a very beautiful town with cobbled  streets, Spanish style motels and hotels  and beautiful homes on the hillside, including one recently sold to Richard  Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Eight miles  farther south, along an unpaved road,  they came upon the picturesque Mes-  moyoya Beach where "The Night of the  Iguana" was filmed and where some of  the houses built for the film still stand.  They travelled through lava beds to arrive at Ixtlan del Rio where they stopped at a glass-blowing factory to watch  hanging lamps made from Btart to finish.  TOURED DISTILLERY  As they drove to Tequila, there were  crops of maguey growing on either aide  of the road and it is from the juice ot  this cactus-like plant that Mexico's national drink is made. They considered tho  smell of Sauza's distillery at Tequila  much more agreeable than the smell of  a brewery. They crossed the mountains  to Bora do Navidad on Melaquo Bay. At  nearby San Patricia they found themselves sweltering In a temperature of 102  degrees, but it was o pleasant spot, they  to Guadalajara through flat fertile country by way of Manzanilla, Colima and  Cuidad Guzman. /  Guadalajara, say the Pallants, must  be one of the worst cities to get around  in with a camper, with its circles, traffic congestion and the somewhat erratic  driving of some Mexican motorists.' But  with its 6,000 foot elevation the climate  was more pleasant than the humid weather of the coast and their stay with a  Mexican family on the outskirts of the  city is an experience they will never forget. In the early morning they would  be awakened by the clang of church  bells and soon the milk wagon would be  going by with the milkman calling  "Leche",/While the women came out" with  little jugs to be filled from the big milk  cans. Next came the garbage truck,  heralded by a cowbell, and by this time  the women had swept the sidewalks in  front of their cases and their half of the  road. Then with.the cry of "Agua", came  the water man with his truck laden with  bottled water. The Pallants spent some  time at the famous liberty market  where one can buy almost \ everything  under the sun.   ... .  it a pleasant town, they had an experience with the official who examined  their visas which did not impress them  favorably. They had not made a careful  examination of their visas when they  received them and by mistake they had  been dated for exit a month earlier than  they should have been. Now, they were  told, they were' in mucho trouble and  it cost them $30 to get the' way cleared  for their exit.'  ' On their way north, the. Pallants called in for a visit at the San Diego Zoo and  Marineland. They toured the CBS studio  in Los Angeles and saw the filming of  one episode of "All in the Family." At  Pismo Beach they dug clams after obtaining a $2 licence, good for three days. The  clams had to be at least 4% inches across.  In Washington they were stopped by the  highway patrol for having expired licence  plates and since Bill was all prepared to  go to jail rather than pay a fine, Evelyn'  had visions of sitting out bis sentence  in the camper with daily visits to the  jail. However, they were let off with a  warning ticket and were soon on their  way home. '  It was a wonderful trip they say, with  many interesting experiences, but back  in their cozy home in Halfmoon Bay  they say there's no place like home-  particularly when it's Halfmoon Bay.

Last Thursday's film show at the Welcome Beach Hall offered a program .of  four very fine films about a beautiful  and interesting country - Italy. .The, films'  loaned by the Italian Government Travel  Office, included studies of .the Italian  Alps where there is skiing even on'the  hottest days of summer and.the fantastic  forms and peaks of the Dolomites, part of  Alps of Southern Tyrol which are formed  of magnesian limestone. The highest peak  in the .Dolomites is Marmolata at 11,024  feet.  One film showed' the beauty of 34  mile long Lake Garda at the northern  edge of the Plain of Lombardy, the Lacus  Benacus of Virgil. The natural beauty of  this lake has been 'perpetuated in the  poetry of Virgil, Catallus and Dante. And  -through!the program, there were reminders of the ancient history of Italy which  elates back to 900 B.C. when the Etruscans, arriving from Asia, colonized Italy.  "Blue and Green" pictured the varied  attractions of Sardinia which has been  in the possession of the Romans, the Vandals, the Goths, the Saracens and the  Austrains who exchanged it for Sicily.  Fritz Leuchte, in announcing that this  was the 11th and last show of the winter  , program, expressed thanks to all who had  helped make It possible, to Keith Comyn  and BUI Fraser who had kept the wheels  of the projector turning, to Mrs. Leuchte  for her encouragement and help In organizing the programs, to Mary Tinkley and  the Peninsula Times for such generous  publicity ond to the gremlins who so  faithfully prepared the hall for each  show. In reply, Alex Ellis, president of  the Welcome Beach Community Association, thanked Mr. Leuchte on behalf of  ���_by Mary Tinkley  the members for giving them so much  pleasure and interest through the winter  months.  - Welcome Beach Community Association held a successful plant sale at the  Welcome Beach Hall last Saturday when  customers came from far and near to buy  bargains in plants ranging from snowdrops to lilac bushes. Mrs. Janet Allen,  the convenor, thanks all those who supported the sale with such generous donations.

At his own expense , > .  Road access up to owner,  GIBSONS���Village council revealed April  3 that it is not obliged to provide  access to property in the ^municipality*  even although a road allowance has been  made. .. ���-.  -  In dealing with a request from El  Hauka for an extension from Shaw Hoad  to his property;'which, he planned -"id  develop, Clerk-trefasurer' D_vid; JoKhsto^  explained that any landowner could request council to open up their property  if there was a roald allowance/"but it  depends if we have the funds t6 spend."  ��� Noting that the area was just husband that coucil did hot intend to develop  the area at present, Mayor Wally Peterson said:  "If someone starts to develop the area,  they are required to put the roads in."  Council agreed to notify Hauka that  he would have to provide access at his  own expense;  Aid. Winston Robinson asked if his  road would have to be up to the standard  of Shaw Road.  Highways department policy, he noted,  was to insist access roads were built to  the same standard as the nearby highway.  Johnston said access roads within the  municipality did not hav_ to conform to  standard.  He noted that now, developers were  required to provide access tjo their subdivisions, but in Hauka's case, his lot  was subdivided before this policy came  into force.  Aid.

MW_W_W^MMMMpW��MMMMMJt_MM����_��  m*m  was unfair.  "If I owned a lot, I'd have to put a  road in myself up to the highway standard! It could cost a lot of money to put a  highway in for the government,"  ; Johnston said that if Hauka built an  access road, his" taxes would increase,  '__A'But.. if-you improve your property,  you must expect the taxes to go up," he  said. ��� ���'���  - Peterson said that people bought property away from the village, which was  cheap4 because it had no access. "Then  they come to us and say they want access.  "It's not fair to thev people who pay  the price for property with access he felt."  Council approved in principle a request from Henry Smith to 'legalize* his  Smitty's Marina .property, which extends  over the boundaries of his water lot lease.  Although Smith's facilities overstepped  his lot line, council previously ignored the  slight discrepancy because' it caused no  hardship to neighboring water lot lessees  or to other harbor users.  But in a letter submitted to council,  the department of lands said the village  would have to either grant an extension  to the lease or reject it once and for all.  Council noted that rejection of Smith's  extension could lay him open to complaints, forcing him to pull back certain >  facilities within the lot boundary.  Peterson said: "I can't really see that  we have any grounds to refuse the extension. He isn't hindering anyone. Smith  applied for an extension a year ago, but  we kept it in abeyance because of harbor  development plans. The lands branch is  now saying we can't keep it in abeyance  and longer."  An extended lease council granted  would be on yearly basis, he said, "and  it would take at least a year to get any  harbor development plans through."  Aid. Hugh Archer felt it would be a  hardship to make Smith moveback. "He  would have to move piles," he noted.  Council agreed to give Smith pcrm|_-  slon to extend his water lot. When he  applies for a new lease, drawn up to  include tho extension, it will be issued on  n yearly basis, alderman said.  Johnston reported that the department  of municipal affairs had approved a.  $3,000 grant under its winter works program. The money will be used to build  additional sidewalks in tho village, particularly in tho School Road area.  Opportunities  Now!  Jackson Eros.  Loggingp Co. Ltd.

A spokesman for the dejiarty  ment told The Times that the bridge  will soon be replaced.  By RITA RELF. Area B director  THIS is the first of a series of reports  on the activities of the regional board ,  ;which are of interest to residents of W  area, (West Sechelt-Halfmoon Bay-Secret  Cove). In these reports I Will1 cover items:  or problems of specific concern in Area  -B and others of general nature affecting  the whole or other parts of the region.  At last month's meeting the board approved their water committee's recom-  mendation for the purchase and rezoning  of,a portion of the Lehmann property at  the top of Nickerson Road as a site for  .a reservoir. This, when developed, will  be fed from the pumps on Derby Road  and provide a constant head and a reserve supply for the West Sechelt area.  'At a much later date, placed as it is on  the edge of the Hydro right  of way,  - it will form part of the second phase of  , the water authority's long-term plans to  : provide  water  to    Halfmoon Bay  and  . points west by trunk mains laid through  , that area.  The   provincial ��� government   is   concerned about- the future of the island-  in the gulf. We have several .'in. Area, B'  mostly in private ownership and at present mostly' undeveloped. They are 7 a  great asset to all of \us, preserving as  they do a great deal of the flora and  fauna "of the area and providing idyllic  swimming and picnicking areas. This can  be changed all too rapidly���let me have  Shy constructive ideas on the subject.  They will be forwarded through the regional board to the provincial government committee studying this matter.  Yt/Ike the neighborhood pub idea  (West Sechelt must be? one of the few  places in B.C. that already has'something  which almost fits the picture). Good luck  to the Jolly Roger in its endeavor to  obtain a pub licence. But, I think the  ideal pub is one to which the locals can  walk to and (hopefully) from for once  leaving the car at home.  My ' comment regarding the operation of St. Mary's Hospital (The Times,  April 4) should in no way be taken as  criticism of "the society but rather of  the system. I. feel quite strongly that  hospitals which are extremely costly to  Page 12 7 The Peninsula Time*  Wednesday, April! 1, 1973       "  operate and are paid for by all of us  should be administered by a publicly  elected board and that the meetings of  that board should be-7 open to the public. They -are in no way different frpm  schools, municipalities, parks and regional  5, districts which, are all concerned with'  *the living, conditions within their community and responsible to, their communities t through democratically ejected  boards  or councils.

When he  was stopped he was administered a  breathalyzer, test at the office and a  reading of .18 was recorded.  In pleading guilty, Tattrie said, "I  was obviously drunk.

"He shouldn't just have been appointed by the planning-committee," he said.  Mr. Relf said: "Director West got a  recommendation from the solicitor that  the appointment of a member-at-large  was illegal. Can we close a blind eye to  that?"  The Halfmoon Bay representative also  S-fcused the planning committee of dealing with matters outside their jurisdiction, such as composition, of the board  | of variance, the current B.C.

They* doubt whether there  is a God. They cannot accept most of the  Bible. Some of these skeptics are mere  triflers while others are earnest-minded,  really desirous of knowing the truth. To  the latter group in particular we address .  our comments today. -  '  Jesus said in the gospel of John, 'If  any. man's will is to do God's will, he  shall know whether the teaching is from  God or whether I am speaking on my own  authority." This shows the way out of  skepticism to faith. Through your lifetime perhaps you have thought much a-  bqut this subject of religion but your  reasoning has ruled out'God as an integral part of life; or it is possible events  or cimcumstances in history have led you  to become skeptical. I appreciate your  position, but in vour text quoted above.  Jesus is making a fair proposition.  ^ He is asking you to do something that  your own conscience approves; fie is asking you to surrender your will to God and .  to make an honest search to find out His  will. If you do this Jesus promises that  y��^u will come out of skepticism into  knowledge. God will reveal Himself to  you if you' make an. honest search for  Him.  Cancer facts  IN, THE   past  decade,   public    surveys  showed that many people delayed  seeking medical advice about cancer  symptoms because of fear, said the Canadian  Cancer  Society.  The society; therefore, made the fear  of cancer, or cancerphobiai a prime target of its public educational program.  _ Efforts to de-emphasize the penalties  for delay ancTto point out the benefits of  early diagnosis have been stressed.      , .  Dr.  Ronald    Rice,   chairman  of  the  society's national    education committee,  said the aim is for a "more rational atti-  ��� tude - towards  cancer."  He added: "Only by knowing the facts  about cancer can' we-develop a realistic,  reasonable approach which dispels paralyzing fears and fosters appropriate action."  Prevention has now become a keynote  in the battle against cancer. The idea Of  prevention and/the more hopeful approach to ear_y diagnosis, has produced  the society's slogan that "Cancer can  . be beateri?'  (Pamphlets and information about  cancer can be obtained by writing to:  -. and Yukon Division, Canadian Cancer  Society,   896  West  Eighth  Avenue,  Vancouver 9, or to 857 Caledonia, Victoria.)  y".'���:.... ,;_;... .:,._"  V\?Z  'T^t  TTStSfe*-  ���:.!

G. Warn for rezoning  of the area from residential to commercial.  director Harry Almond, Area 'D\ said  that he had received a petition from  Roberts Creek residents opposing any  commercial development in the area.  Foreshore area's petitioners felt, should  "be reserved for enjoyment and use by  the people as a public area.". .  They further suggested "That the areas  on both sides of Roberts Creek, be declared a green belt, this being the only undisturbed stream and land in electoral  area _)' exemplifying the flora and fauna  of the region. 7V  'Furthermore, we request that all fore-1  shore Ieasfisr wiether new applications or  renewing of existing leases, not be autlt-  orized by the provincial government'department concerned until the approval of  the Sunshine Coast Regional Board and  its area director, has first been obtained."  Petitioners asked that their recommendations be forwarded to Don Lock-  stead, MLA, the provincial government,  departments of lands and forests, recreation and conservation and municipal affairs. ' .  Administrator Charles Gooding pointed out that although the petition showed  the feelings of local residents, it could not  ioners did not give their legal description,  ioners did not give their legal descri_<hion.  Director J. H. Tynet said the suggestions made in the petition were in keeping  with the opinion of the advisory planning  committee.  ' On behalf of the planning committee,,  he recommended that the board write to  the lands department.and urge that foreshore leases around Roberts Creek be  cleared to standards of the federal and  provincial fisheries agencies.  Under other business, the water committee agreed that a"new water line  should be laid along Selma Park Road to  replace the 'inadequate* plastic pipe serving the area at present.  Cost of installing an eight-inch ductile  main from the Highway 101 to the top  of Selma Park Road was estimated at  $6,300 by works superintendent G. Dixon.  The committee decided to limit the  pipe run to lots presently requiring service, and to extend the main as needed  Area 'C representative Bert Slade  pointed out that there was a question of  responsibility for Selma Park Road.;  "The Indians gave the land year�� ago  as a; service road And. the' highways de-  parthtent repudiates responsibility.  > "The road is very poorly maintained  and the highways department only goes  as far as grading it. They won't take  responsibility."  Since the board had agreed' to re-'  place, the water' main down the road, he  felt they  should  look  into jurisdiction.  Gooding said he would investigate the  matter.  In his March report, Dixon noted that  several new water connections had been  rqaftle during the month.  "Most of these were highway crossings  in West Sechelt to the north side of the  highway," he said. "These connections  were put in to serve vacant lots before  the highway is paved and they may not  be used for several years."  Under capital works, he reported that  work was continuing along Nickerson  Road, with 300 feet of six-inch line laid  and the right-of-way cleared.  "A start has been made on the renewal  of wood stave mains in Sechelt," said  Dixon. "Approximately 800 feet of six-  inch ductile iron main has been laid."  The regional district is growing by  leaps and bounds if the creation of new  parcels by subdivision is any indicator,  said E. R. Cuyllts in his planning director's report.  "In the period January to March in  clusive, copies of 14 new registered subdivisions arrived in the office," he said.  "This number represents the creation  of 75-new parcels within the boundaries  of the regional district, excluding .the  villages of Sechelt.and Gibsons." 7  He revealed that a preliminary draft  for the new arterial road system had been  completed and was under review by the  study committee.  "Once this review has been completed,  the draft report will be presented to the  techlnical planning committee for their  consideration," he said.  Cuylits' report, outlined progress in"  the move to relocate present, bulk oil  facilities in the region.  "On March 27, a meeting was held [��  with the Petroleum Association to dis-s  cuss and evaluate several/sites for a  petroleum bulk oil terminal which will  eventually replace the existing terminals  at Sechelt, Davis Bay, Gibsons and Hopkins Landing.   '  y.;.. "It is' expected a report will be produced by the association giving the industry's evaluation of the relocating possibilities."  LOW COST  LOAMS...

William Saunders told court that  Weatherill came into the police detachment office at Sechelt about 5 p.m.  March 29 demanding to know by what  right the principal of Pender Harboqr  Secondary School had in ejecting him  from the school grounds.:  "He was boisterous' and loud,'* Saunders told court, ���'and I told him to leave  the (police) office."  Saunders told the court that Weatherill left and walked towards an older'  Ford sedan where one person was sitting  on the. passenger side and two others  were in th'^P back seat. Weatherill walked  to the driver's side of the car which  was vacant, he said.  Const. Michael ODonnell, on Saunders' orders, approached Weatherill and  asked his name. He refused to give it  and refused to show his driver's licence,  Saunders told the court.  He said that Weatherill quickly moved  to the back seat of the car and said to  a passenger, "Willie, you drove here."  "I could smell' liquor on his "Weather-  ill's) breath," said Saunders. The sergeant' told the court that he believed  Weatherill drove the car to the police  station and then Saunders arrested him  and took him forcibly into the police  station where he read the breath test  statement to him. Weatherill refused to  take the test and called a lawyer. After  discussing the situation with the lawyer,  Weatherill again refused to take the test.  Other passengers in the car, said Saunders, were Johnnie Phare, front seat; William Passmore and Cameron Prannan',  both of Gibsons, in the back.  Const. O'Donnell testified that Weatherill refused to take the breath teat.  He said that he also heard Weatherill  say that something about "Willie" drove  in.  Weatherill called as his witness, William Passmore, who testified, that he  drove the car to the police station. He  told court that Weatherill told him to  drive because the police believed that  Weatherill drove to the station.  , Passmore stated that the group had  been drinking beer. He said that he  had been driving for some time before  reaching Sechelt. They drove from Gibson* to Pender Harbour to Sechelt  Judge Mittelsteadt asked the youth If  he knew what perjury meant and that  if he was convicted of it, he could be  sentenced to 14 years in prison.  Johnnie Joe Phare testified that  Weatherill had turned tho driving over to  Passmore about 40 minutes to an hour  before reaching Sechelt.  Weatherill told the court that ho felt  the police didn't havo sufficient grounds  to charge him with impaired driving.  Const. Dill Waldle, acting for the  crown, eaid that tho code required a  breath sample to bo token within two  hours of drinking. The atatcment read  to Weathferill stated -that fact, said  Waldle.

An  application is pending in Victoria for  funds, Lang reported. The officials said  that the corners will be delineated and  the road will be widened. A proper four-  way flashing red light will be installed.  Lang and the highway representatives  looked over the cenotaph corner and it  was agreed that work was required  there.  Lang said that now the Legion has  new quarters they may consider moving  the cenotaph to their own grounds which  then would allow more work to be done  at that corner.  Aid.

At Rayner's request,  a quiet ceremony was held at the village  office during the meeting.  Lang thanked Rayner and Mrs. Boyd  for their service to the village. Rayner  was the second clerk to serve the village  since its incorporation in 1956. He took  office in June 1957. He was replaced in  February by Neil Sutherland.  "Ted was always concerned with the  public purse and the public's well-being,"  said Lang in his brief tributory remarks.  "The village has had a steady growth  under the watchful eye (of the clerk)"  Lan�� said.  He said that Mrs. Boyd "tilled the  gap" when Rayner took ill last year.
