SUNSHINE Coast Recreation Committee
is opposing Sunshine Coast Golf and
Country Club's application for 75 acres
of crown land on which the recreation
centre site Is situated.
Following tho April 14 defeat of the
referendum in which funds were sought
'to develop on ice rink and other facilities
at the site, the golf club, which is adjacent to the recreation site, applied for
lease of 75 acres to < expand its facilities,
Erich Hensch, chairman of tho recreation committee, in a letter to tho inspector
of lands, said his group opposed the lease
application on the following conditions:
—Tho committee has, with the assistance from The Sunshine Coast Regional Board and the provincial government,
negotiated use of the land from MacMillan
Bloedel Ltd. on the,basis that the property 'must and will be used for public
recreation only.'
"We are given to understand the ...
golf club . . . has been unsuccessful in
previous negotiation with MacMillan
Bloedel Ltd. for similar use of tho land."
—To date, approximately one-third of
tho property has been developed for pub
lic recreation at an investment ot about
$60,000 which funds came mainly from the
public treasury.
—Two public referendums have been
held for .construction and maintenance of
an ice rink; "Even though each referendum was defeated by a narrow margin,
tho project is still very much alive and

Norm Watson thinks he might bo

editor last week criticizing legislators for giving themselves hefty
raises. What Norm didn't realize at
the time of the letter writing was
that Sochelt council doubled their
own indemnities. Tho pay hike was
reported in tho same issue of Tho
Times as Norm's letter appeared.
Under the bylaw, the mayor's indemnity will increase to $1,000 from
|530 annually and aldormanlc salaries will increase from $212 to $500.
So, it will cost village taxpayers
$3,000 yearly to pay council members. Seems like a lot—$1,000 for an

said in part:
"We would state that our records indicate the Sunshine Coast Regional Di_-

Hensch asked the regional board to
meet to discuss the future of the 116-
acre recreation centre site. He suggested
the board's May 81 meeting.
Regional board chairman Lome Wolverton suggested that a special meeting,
rather than a regular board meeting,
should be set up to discuss the site with
the recreation centre officials.

Further to board proposals to fill in

Elementary School, a letter from the
highways department pointed out that
the school district would be responsible
for any resulting flooding or property
Trustee Peter Precesky noted that a
new shopping centre adjoining the school
was raised about three feet above existing ground level.
"The school is now definitely a low
area," he said. "I don't know how it will
survive in the future."
He felt the board might have to consider raising the school grounds in the
future to avoid flooding.
MacLeod felt that because the school
grounds were now lower than the surrounding area, they would be flooded
when it rained.
Precesky noted, however, that there
is drainage tile around the perimeter.
"It should take the water, but we'll
have to wait and see," he said.
A special combined meeting of the
education and finance committees will be
held April 4 to consider additional funding for the' district's current learning
disabilities program.
The move followed receipt 'of a letter
frdm the Peninsula Association for Children with Learning  Disabilities urging
the board to consider over-budgetting for
continuation of the program approved in -
November.   -
Funds budgetted for the program have
now been used up, Metzler said, and
additional funding could not normally be
considered until the district's 1974 budget. , \"
u Trustees agreed, however, that the
program -should be continue, and expanded if additional funding can be arranged.
The boaifd agreed to approach the village of Gibsons and suggest that a crosswalk be installed at Elphinstone High
School. n
Mrs.  Labonte  noted that there was
"concern among some parents" "about the
lack of a crosswalk at the school. Thei
situation   will   be  aggravated,   she feltj
when the o.d elementary school is pressed
into sen ice next term.
VA letter from staff members at the
two Pender Harbour schools stressed the
need for a band program in their area.
They recommended the board to give
preference to teachers with band experience when hiring new staff.
The matter was referred to supt. R. R.
Hanna, after trustees expressed support
for this suggestion.

granted permission to use Elphinstone

Citizens education forum
to be formed in district
A FOUNDING meeting of a citizens education forum will be held May 12 a^ a
site to  be' announced, organizers have
told The Times.
The forum is being organized by par-,
ents, teachers and other concerned members of Sechelt School District This has
grown from the desire of many persons
to become better informed about the public schools and to take a more active role
in the planning for the future of the
schools and the children of the school
district. 7*
"A jforum will allow people to express
their views regarding the operation of
the schools and their function in society,"
said Janice Owen of Gibsons, spokesman
for the founders.
At the May 12 meeting guest speakers
will be R. R. Hanna, superintendent of
the district and Mrs. Betty McClurg, a
trustee of Surrey school board.
There will be no formal membership
in the forum to allow all those present
the freedom to express their opinions
and submit helpful information.
There will be a silver collection in
lieu of membership dues.
Several topics relevant to the local
school population will be discussed. Sub-
committees will be formed for discussion
and research of selected topics. -The sub-

PROCEDURES to zone land around Hotel
Lake will begin immediately, the Sunshine Coast Regional District board of
directors stated Thursday.
Planning director E. IR. Cuylits was
given instructions to start zoning bylaw
machinery immediately with the intention
of preserving water supplies in the lake,
The board's action was prompted by
requests from Irvine's Landing Waterworks District and ,Scott Bay Water
Works Inc. both of Madeira Park.
A . C. Fair, secretary of the Irvine's
Landing district, in asking that zoning
be given "wihout undue delay" said that
Hotel Lake is the main source of domestic water supply for a large number of
water users in the surrounding areas of
the lake with a steady annual increase in
the population and of house construction
in these areas.
Fair, in his letter, said that the lake
is comparatively shallow and is fed by
undeground streams. John T.  Paterson,

critical one is the strong mandate, given
the negotiators to put No. 1 priority on

He warned that "a strong feeling

In a letter to Mrs. F. Olson, chairman of the Sunshine Coast Regional  Council of theSenior Citizens Associa-  . tion of B.C., which is reproduced on this  page, Strachan says that toilet facilities  are available at Langdale and Horseshoe Bay and he believes those services  are suitable. That's right, Mi. Strachan,  the services are suitable at Langdale and  Horseshoe Bay if you happen to be sitting in a car, and the need to use the  facilities arises. However, not all persons,  (let alone senior citizens) use private  cars to travel to and from the Sunshine  Coast to Vancouver. Try asking the bus  driver to stop at Horseshoe Bay when  it's leaving the ferry.  Strachan says that as the crossing is  less than one hour such facilities are  unnecessary aboard the ship. We wonder  if the minister has driven from Madeira  Park to Langdale to get aboard the ferry with little time to spare (because  of very poor highways). If he has, we  wonder u he was able to stop at the  restroom facilities at Langdale.' If passengers are crippled or aged they' will  find a great deal of difficulty climbing  out of a car'or bus and then going up  the 28 stairs to the main deck on the.  Sunshine Coast Queen. Buses do not  provide facilities oh local runs.  Strachan, also says the Istaijf has  "wheelchair service available if that is  required. Does that mean that deckhands will carry the wheelchair and rider  up the 28 steps sedan chair style?  Mrs.' Olson also complained about  insufficient room to open car doors.  Strachan replied, "I am quite sure that  we have adequate room if the cars are  properly parked. Persons with difficulty  leaving their cars should notify the crew  and they will, ensure they are parked with  room to leave their cars- without difficulty." Try telling that to crewmen  when they are faced with parking 280  cars in about five minutes.  Earlier senior citizens and others on  the Sunshine Coast felt that an. elevator  or escalator can be installed on the  Queen. They reasoned that since ferries  can be stretched by. 80 feet or so, it  should be no trick to add an elevator  to a ship. However, the highways minister and members of his department said  no, installing elevators on the Sunshine  Coast Queen is out of the question.  So, sights were lowered, and senior  citizens thought failing elevator service,  Strachan denies facilities  (Editor's note: Following are two letters,  thei first writtenT by Robert Strachan,  highways., minister, to Mrs. F.

To  the best of my knowledge, these committee members are hardworking,' conscientious citizens who do accept their  share of responsibility���personal and  civic. To me, it seems unjust to humiliate  these people in this way.  The point of my letter is. that before  taking such liberties with other people's  rights, it would be appropriate to assess  one's own deficiencies.  Assuming that most homes still have  a Bible, I would suggest the cover be  dusted off, opened to the Gospel of John  in the New Testament, chapter 8, verses  Ml.

It  appears that chemical toilets would do.  The answer to that is in Mr.  Strachan's letter to Mrs. Olson.  Mr. Strachan and the NDP government complained because the ferry service lost $5 million last year. This is  too bad but highways throughout the  province do not make money. They are  built at great cost to serve people. So  why should the government be upset  because the ferries lose money? It wasn't  planned to be a profit-making enterprise  because if it did make money then it  would appear that fares are too high.  We feel that residents on the Sunshine Coast are not getting a fair deal.  We don't have?the best ferries. We have  a 20-year icebreaking fugitive from.the  Great Lakes (Sunshine Coast Queen)  and a 70-year old reject from New Jersey, San Francisco and Seattle (Latf��-  dale Queen).;  Surely we deserye better.  B�����* fotgs in mmntrnl hemlth cure  BRITISH Columbia once occupied the  limelight in the field * of mental  health care, but the province has "fallen  far behind," says mental health minister Dennis Cocke.  Our largest mental hospital, River-  view, faced a "ritical situation" for most  of 1972 due to an acute shortage of  trained psychiatrists, says the provincial  mental health branch's annual report  "This caused a serious reduction in admissions and reduced the effectiveness  of the new outpatient department."  Today, the trend is away from hos;-  pital care for many mental patients, because  tpr)-ved  understaffed. Patients often lost contact  with family and friends, became dependent on the institution and lost the will  to make a successful return to the community.  The Canadian Mental Health Association in B.C. has been campaigning  for years for community mental health  clinics. Although there are now 26 in  B.C., there is still a long way to go,  as many communities are poorly served.  Some examples: Richmond, with a  population of more than 65,000, has no  clinic. There's no clinic for the more  than 100,000 in North and West Vancouver, although there are some psychiatric beds in the Lions Gate Hospital.

The letter is addressed to  Sechelt village council and to the village  building inspector who were critical of  the new structure being built on Cowrie  Street. A report of the council's comments appeared in the April 25 edition of  the Peninsula Times.)  Mayor Ben Lang  Sechelt village council ,  Frank Giampa, building inspector  Gentlemen: I'm writing this letter in  regards to the article in last week's paper  re:- the new and old Yarn Barn building,  To start with, I think we should at  least be given a chance to finish working  on it before we're condemned. We have  every Intention of bringing the old building up to standard. Seems to me the  council, mayor, ond building inspector are  really lumping the gun.'  Aa far no architecturally attractive  buildings are concerned, the only ones  left in our town are the ones you mentioned you'd like to tear down. You certainly couldn't moan, the cement blocks  going up all over including our own,  but under. the present bylaws, that's  about all that can be built. The attrac- '  tion to any small town la not lb? nquoro  buildtngs, an you can see them in any  city, but t'he old and country-like buildings, to remind ua of our post,  Sure it would be nice to havo a whole  new building, we certainly hnvo no intention of leaving it abortive looking aa  you stated, but wo are not in n financial  position to build a whole new building at  tho present time, which Is something you  people don't even seem to consider.  Sechelt DIANE DUNSFORD  Committeemen are honest  Editor, Tho Times,  Sir: During tho time preceding and  following the two plebiscites for a recreation centre in our area, residents havo  enjoyed tho democratic freedom of expressing their opinloni! for or against In  tho hopes of persuading voters to sup- ,  port their stand.  Tills Is na it should be, and I would  not deny them tho right to use pcrmia-  alvo methods to do bo provided It is done  in an honest and forthright manner. I  am not writing this letter to support ono  side or tho other or to spark any new  controversy.  Tho thing which has disturbed   mo  Sir: The senior citizens among your,  readers might like to know that construction of the apartment home is well  underway on the site just off North Road  near the Hydro substation. Application  forms for the dwelling units will be  mailed to those who request them. Call  the  undersigned at  886-9344.  There are 13 single units and seven  double units.in the project available to  senior citizens. The contractor has set  completion date about the end of June  and senior citizens who are interested  in this accommodation are urged to inquire now.  GEORGE .COOPER, Committee member  Sunshine Coast Kiwanis Village-  'Heavy' replies to^writer  Editor, The Times, -  Sir: I would like to thank, your correspondent, Mr. Ed Birchenall, for his  rather pointed reference to "me as a  "heavy" in which he is quite correct as  I weigh over two hundred and thirty  pounds on my six feet'two inch frame. It  is nice to be- flattered when I am the  short one among my three sons and am  sometimes referred to as "the runt''.  The "comfortable pew" appellation is  not easily recognized unless it is a "comfort" to continue the effort to serve  people and communities after one ceases  to be fully employed following fifty, years  of active service. The "comfort" as far  as the pew is concerned is not in Sechelt  but several miles, to the west  We all agree that democracy is something worthwhile and must be preserved.  It really means that we should all express an opinion and the majority determines the policy.' It is 'regretted that so  many decisions are made on such a small  percentage of votes, even when the  majority"are in favor of any project  which, is defeated oh a percentage, basis  Benjamin Disraeli which he used in reference* to Gladstone in the British parliament, "He was an unsophisticated rhetorician inebriated with the exuberance of  his own verbosity and egotistical imagination." Perhaps, some of us are a bit  like that.  Sechelt MINTO SWAN  Exception taken  Editor, The Times,  Sir: We take exception to your remark  of "dirty pool" regarding Sunshine Coast  part-time residents being informed they  could possibly be further subsiding community programs. Taxes are rising equally for landowners who do not benefit  but" for whose dollars progress would  surely be slower.    '  City conditions aren't that great recreational-wise for the average and lower  income kids. Public facilities are so overcrowded manoeuvering is impossible at  (most) times.  One last thought, WHO chose the  Saturday before Easter vacation. Most inconvenient having to make an especial  trip to vote.  R.  NIELSEN  Selma Park, B.C.  That taxation bit again  Editor,  The  Times,  Sir: Despite the feeling of holy peace  which has pervaded me since Les Ca-  nadiens eliminated the (censored) Flyers,  I asked my friend Schnigglefritz what  he thought of the contentious idea, mooted by some, that non-resident property  owners should be excluded from voting  in money plebiscites such as for recreation centres.  "Lands sakes; man", he said, "that's  taxation without representation. That's  why them Boston Bruins threw King  George's tea into the drink."  J; S. BROWNING  \       RR 1, Sechelt  'Mild retraction'  Editor, The Times,  Sir: Allow me to make a mild retraction concerning my recent letter apropos  your editorial on the demise of the recreation centre.  In setting you straight on the circular  issued ' by  the  committee,  I  used  the  entirety and, as you were entitled to,  without comment. May I also'point out  that the several mistakes in' spelling etc.  ,did not appear in my original letter.  Gibsons E. BIRCHENALL  Campsite transformed  Editor, The Times,    -      ^    ,  Sir: Easter Monday my 'husband and  I took two of our grandchildren to the  government campsite at Porpoise'Bay.  What a pleasant surprise We received.'  The beach has been transformed almost  overnight. Gone are all the rocks and  debris. There before us was a clean, sandy  beach, stretching away off into the distance. Truly a miracle has .happened.  The sun was' shining and a few sun-  bathers were stretched out on the sand.  I could visualize the many families who  will be there to enjoy it all this summer. Many thanks to the people who  made it possible.  We also noted there are many parking  spaces for cars for the people who will  go there just for the day to spend a  few leisure hours.  The campsites are numerous and-very  well laid out in a park-like setting. One  would have to travel far to find anything  to compare with it.  A place such as this deserves a special  name.

Need tor immunization stressed  Diphtheria increasing  in province, says Cocke  VICTORIA���Four cases of diphtheria  have been reported and 29 healthy  carriers of this disease have been identified this year, according to Dentins Cocke,  minister of health  In 1967 diphtheria reappeared in BritT  ish Columbia after being completely absent for four years, and an increasing  number of cases have been reported every year since that time. In 1972, 11 cases  'were reported and , thirty-three cases  [identified, Cooke said.  He'stressed that this continuing inci-  :denee��of diphtheria is a strong reminder  lof the continuing need for an active  ,-progr ._ of immunization status of the  'community at a satisfactory level Diph-  'theria is a potentially explosive hazard  ���if this level is allowed to drop.  ," The decreasing level of protection  ; against poliomyelitis is giving cause for  ��concern. In 1965 80 per cent of children  "entering grade one in areas served by  "the health branch were protected against  " poliomyelitis���by September, 1967, this  ; percentage had declined to just under  ;70 percent.  t Many people, he said, will remember  J. the poliomyelitis outbreaks before, vac-  ���cine became available. In  1953, shortly  ��� before the introduction of Salk vaccine,  ;over 400 eases of paralytic poliomyelitis  ^were reported. Salk vaccine began to be  "used in 1955 and Sabin vaccine in 1960.  '      "The fact that only one case of para-  ��� lytic poliomyelitis has been reported in  ^British Columbia since 1960 is dramatic  ' evidence of the effect of immunization  but has, perhaps, led to a false sense  of security. As long as poliomyelitis is  present in other countries, we cannot  affort io let down oiir barriers," said  Cocke.  Cocke referred to a statement made  by Dr. R. P. Bryce Clarke at the international symposium on vaccines, sponsored by the Canadian Pediatric Society,  in May 1972. Dr. Clarke, in his closing  ...... ���   ��, ���.. '-..'������.  Books  remarks, said: "We have the means to  control a number of infections which are  significant cause of morbidity and  are  mortality. The problem is to get the vac  cine out of the bottle and into the child."  British Columbia has had a good record of immunization but constant effort  is needed to maintain it in order to provide a sufficient degree of > protection for  adults and children alike, Cocke added.  ;MRS.

Prizes awarded for  decorated eggs were' to Sonja Jorgensen  for the most original design, to Mary  Connor for the most artistic, and to Mark  Cunningham for the funniest. Prizes  awarded in the various age groups were  Freddy Hansen (seniors), Sherry Jorgensen (medium age group), Tina Hansen  (5-6 year olds) and Cynthia Wickwire  (littlest ones). The rain held off until  the last egg was discovered and the children enjoyed refreshments of juice and  cookies.'   ���       j \     ���:,'���',    '���'. -  Mr. and Mrs.V-Richard Laird were in  Vancouver on Palm Sunday for the  christening of their two granddaughters,  Cynthia and Samantha Dash at St. Philip's Anglican Church, Dunbar.' The proud  parents of" the girls are the Laird's second daughter, Carol and husband Ted  Dash of Tsawwassen. Also present was  ���^ the babies' great-grandmother, Mrs. Eva  Lyons. For the Eaister weekend, the  Lairds, home at Redrooffs, entertained  their elder daughter, Susan, with husband Kendall Pearson and daughters April  and Carla. There was a birthday cake in  honor of the 6th birthday of April and  the birthday of her mother. The Pearsons,  like many other visitors to the Sunshine  Coast last weekend, spent more time  waiting for ferries than they were able to  spend with their families. Their journey  to Redrooffs from Vancouver^took eight,  hours.  Another full house" for the Easter  weekend was the Jim Cooper home where  the guests were daughter Marilyn with  husband Allan Ross and daughter Dyan,  and Mr. and Mrs. Kerry Scharf of Vancouver.

Returnees need  smallpox shots  V  CANADA has reimposed, as a temporary  control measure, the requirement for  presentation of a valid international certificate of vaccination against smallpox  by all travellers returning to Canada  from London, England.'  This has been done because of $ie  presence in England of two secondary  cases of smallpox arising from one case  of smallpox contracted late in March by  a laboratory technician.  Health officials urge that all British  Columbia residents planning to leave/  North America assure themselves TthM  they.possess a valid internationaLcertifi- ,  cate of vaccination 'against smallpox, not  only to avoid the remote-possibility of  contracting smallpox b_t also to avoid  inconvenient delays^n their travel plans  by the unexpected imposition of control  measures.  man $50 fine  GIBSONS���Patrick     Steven     Beaudoin  was fined $50 nt provincial court April 24 nfter he admitted causing a disturbance in the  Peninsula Hotel.

Water Problems. The crest  Svill have a water faucet-rampant on  a field of dirty dishes and laundry  depicting the countless times our  water's gone off.  \ Perhaps we're the unwitting red- .  pients of an ancient family curse or  something because almost from the  flay we "tied the knot" we've suffered a multitude of water problems  (which have followed us the entire  length of the Pacific coast.  J   It all began many years ago^when  re moved from our apartment into ��  little house. Being incurable ro-  intics, theidea of a place tucked  the woods with its very own well,  jmpletely charmed us. The thing  wked perfectly until   the day I  jfought our first-born home from the  lospital. That happy event coincided  with the well running dry. Our newborn on the other hand, was anything  fbut dry; The only thing we could do  fwas drive daily to a mountain spring  Swhere my husband would laboriously  iky fill buckets with water and; load  pern into our small car. Upon his  ieturn, he Usually loist half the sup-  fly going up the hill to our house.  iJVith^all the; washing, baby bottles ���  <and so on the chore seemed an endless ,cyele of gathering and boiling  ��wt_ter. We were overjoyed to move. *  *;   Another place we < lived in had a <  second floor bathroom with a trick  fjhower that would occasionally leak,  lending a sprinkling of water thTough  #he crystal chandelier in the dining-  jjfoom ceiling below. It was. particularly embarassing when we had company lingering around   the   dinner  ���table while one of our children was  /upstairs  showering. Several guests  thought we had baptized them when  Hhe  water started sprinkling  down    sechelt���Daffodils, daisies and box-  ��ipon their heads. I assured them it wood graced St. Hilda's Church, Se-  '*vas just our answer to the finger-    chelt, for the April wedding uniting Ar-  }Wl. .  As the years progressed so did our  /ater problems. Sometimes there  gwas too much, like flooded basements  wr overflowing plumbing, but other  aimes it was famine, like the time we  mad just moved into a brand new  land rather elaborate rambler. There  ��sat all the shiny new devices such as  a  dishwasher and not a  drop    of  water. The problem was a broken  pump oh the privately owned water  system. The owner was in Europe  and no one on the street which was  serviced by his water could get into  the locked pump house. Finally, a  fireman in the area took control of  the situation. A pump was ordered,  but had to be sent from San Francisco. It was a Labor Day weekend,  so for five days we went without  water. Luckily   it rained. We put  buckets under the downspouts and  gathered some water that way. The  rest,  we  dipped from  a river.  It  wasn't very pleasant because    the  spawning season had just ended and  the river-banks were thick with decaying salmon. As luck would have  it, we had houseguests. Our intent  had been to show off our new place.  When we took up  residence on  the Sunshine Coast I figured there'd  always be plenty of water. The first  month here, it went off twice. Both  times we had a houseful of company. The third time the water was  absent, my son had fallen down the  stairs. Rushing him into the bathroom, I turned on the cold top. Nothing happened!  1 had to bathe his  wounds in apple juice.  Today the water's off again. We  have company again. But, this time  we were warned in time to fill the  bathtub and every other receptacle  with the precious liquid. No one's going to call me a big drip!  ��a.ma ��� i      i    i     i ���__-_--���_--��|  MISS BEE'S ]  1   CARD & GIFT SHOP  Wharf Km. - Swholl - 8SS40M  t.O.

''  Mayor Ben. Lang of Sechelt, at last  month's meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District executive committee introduced informal discussion on the sewer  study.                           s  He pointed out that it was important ~  to tf��e village of Sechelt to know where  the affected regional district areas stood  on the matter.  Director Frank West of Area E and  chairman of the finance committee said .  his committee will make its recommendation following opinions voiced by the  various -area directors.  Director Harry Almond of Area D  (Roberts Creek) had already expressed  his areas opposition to the proposal.  Rita Relf, director of Area B (Halfmoon Bay)-West Sechelt) said that West  Sechelt area was opposed to the plan as  the residents did not consider, the facility  was as yet necessary in that area.  Bert Slade, Area C director (Selma  Park-Davis Bay-Wilson Creek), said that  his area was generally opposed to the  plan for the same reasons given as Director Relf, with the exception that he  thought the lower western area of Selma  Park could probably benefit from a sewer  system.  There was some general discussion on  the problem of providing a sewer system  for the core area which left on its own  , would comprise St. Mary's Hospital-Se-  chelt Indian Reserve and the -Village of  Sechelt.  In other business, the committee rec  ommended to the board that a per- diem  expense rate of $35 be set. This rate is  to cover all out-of-pocket expenses except those of travel and hotel with the;  latter to be covered by a voucher when  claiming.  The $25 indemnity for attendance at  committee meetings was discussed. It was  pointed out that board policy had required that only the specific budgeted amount  would be used for this purpose and this  had resulted in a payment of $7.40 per,  member per meeting. Other factors involved were discussed which included the  attendance of non-committee members at  committee meetings, and the increasing  number of committee meetings required  to handle the board's business.. v' *  It was decided to recommend to the,  board that the full amount under legislative services in the budget be utilized to  pay members in' full for attendance a.t  committee meetings. Future budgets  would be set to reflect this policy, members, decided. "  U-DRIVE  TRUCKS  SUNSHINE RENTALS  885-2848 886-2848  or 885-2151 eve*.  h  Zrloral ^/trranaemen  ^fiftware...

SECHELT���A reversal of the agenda at  the April 19th meeting of the Senior  Citizens Association 69 of SecheK saw  the .members entertained by a singing  group at the beginning of the meeting  with the business session being conducted  last This was done to enable those who  sometimes find it necessary to leave early in order to catch the "Shoppers' Bus"  an opportunity to enjoy the entertainment portion of the day.  The program opened with Mrs. Marguerite Foxall, Mrs. Dorothy Stockwell, '  Bill Coffee, Walter James and Gunnar  Hansen singing, "I'd Like to Teach the  World to Sing", followed by "In Joseph's  Lovely Garden" and in keeping with the  season", Easter Parade".- This tetter gave  the audience an opportunity to participate  and they joined in the chorus with alacrity. Dorothy Stockwell then gave us,  "Open the Gates of the Temple" and  then with the group participating "Holy  atr. ,���'������'  The musical portion of the program  was brought to a close with two piano  duets, "Witches Flight" and "Shepherd  Boy" by Mrs. Mary Redman and Mrs.  Eva Hoyward. These two pianists put so  much vim and verve into their playing  that the audience must swing with them.  Mrs. Ruby Hatcher and Mrs. Hazel Evans  were accompanists for the singers.  A skit, "As One Lady to Another,"  with Mrs. Clear and Mrs. Kingsley proving themselves to be top comediennes not  only demonstrated a perfect swindle but  showed that "Judy O'Grady and the  Colonels Lady" were really arid truly  "Sisters under the Skin." Thanks ladies  for a hilarious interval.'' '  Minutes of previous meetings of the  executive and the last general meeting  were read. Confirmation was made of  the grant being awarded for the Senior  Swingers Dance Group to resume their  activities starting in September.  Miss Adele de Lange reported on the  regional council meeting held recently.  The council bad given its support to the  resolutions forwarded to the provincial  convention.

This  joint meeting is to be held in the new.  Legion Hall.  It was enthusiastically decided that  a coffee urn which had become surplus  to our needs should be donated to tho  Legion  ladles   auxiliary.  There was correspondence regarding  the proposed 'homemnkers service and  Miss de Lange was requested to meet  with the district health1 nurse and discuss the possibilities of bringing such a  service to the area and ihe probable  charges in order that the matter might  \bo brought to fruition.  One senior who is unable to leave  her homo would like to havo visitors.  Mrs. Hazel Evans asked for volunteers to  telephone herself so that arrangements  could bo mode. Membership had now  reached 250 and this figure waa expected to be exceeded very soon.  Dave Hayward reported that lie was  already planning tor a charter tour for  the end of May, '  It was decided that tickets should be  , printed for the luncheon for the Powell  Ulver visitors; that admission be by ticket  only ond that, because of tho numbers  expected to attend, that admission be  limited to members only. Discussion took  place regarding supplies for tho luncheon.

Turn the page and  you are^gway on a favorite column before  you know it.  The Times, is full of information on  the local scene, and that is the heart of  this type of newspaper. The reporting is  accurate, clearly written! and easy to  read.  There are many events both political  and social that one cannot attend, but  there is no need to miss' a- thing, the  story is there in The Times.  It uses its influence for the benefit  of the community, where 'swift action  often follows Its pointing finger.        '  The exceptional variety of short in-"  teresting articles appeals to all members'  of the family. Students and young peo-  , pie's acitivities are well covered, and  there is always a smile or two in 'Strait  Talk.'     -  ��� The advertisements which take up a  large proportion of the paper are well  balanced, and are most important in a  rural area where stores are not always  in easy reach. An active real estate section, /whether one is in Jthe market or  not, makes interesting reading.  I enjoy the editorials, assimilate the '  facts, and disagree with the ideas if-1  -wishr.'"* ���     ' ^ ��������- -  Sometimes there is a corner for 'soul-  food'. It is surprising how many people  are at least poets at heart!  The Time, is vitally interested in- protection of the environment, and this is  where I feel it is in the most difficult  position. Progress and expansion are the  lifeblood of a community and its newspaper, and yet the Sunshine Coast���a  marvellous piece of country���may be in  danger from these very things.  , With its large circulation The Times  uses its "unique position to bring information to its readers, who are after all the  protectors of this area, and h hope it will  continue to function as a leader of progress and development while protecting  the areas most valuable commodities,'  clean waters, land of beauty,1 suid Sunshine on the Coast.

"At the present time there are four  water licenses on the lake which include  two main waterworks districts and six or  more individual permits with approximately 80 households being serviced with  water from this source during the summer months," said Fair.  There are also two marinas and a  motel uses considerable water in the summer, said Fair. A 10-lot subdivision is in  the final stage of processing and a much  larger one adjacent to the lake is being  planned. ,.(  J.' H. Tyner, director of Area A> 6a^:  "It no one objects we should proceed  immediately to" preserve the water supply  (at Hotel Lake)." He said that a 200-lot  subdivision is planned for Hotel Lake.  Fair recommended the following:  ���Septic tanks and drain fields to be  set back 150 to 200 feet from the shoreline;.  ���Building lot parcels to be a minimum of two acres with one residence  per parcel; "  ���Minimum frontage, especially on  lakcshore, to be 100 feet.  Pnterson's recommendations wero:  ���A 76-foot setback for building;  ���A,225-foot distance for effluent discharge;  ���Onc-houBe, two acre lot size "might  protect our water supply."

VJL  er  am  d   L^hri&tal ~J\aemti  THE PROPRIETORS  look forward to meeting new friends and clientele.  in  9  MLA Don Lockstead returned to Powell  River last week, a veteran of his first  sitting of the provincial legislature.  "In the main it was as I had expected," Lockstead said. "We backbenchers  felt that in the past the cabinet had been  holding ail the power and we felt we  should have more input. An to the credit  of the ministers, thej> responded favorably to this and were very good about  the input. All the legislation was gone  over in caucus and we worked with the  ministers in committees. We received .  comments tha^jthe input was well re- '',  ceived kh_ valuable. The"���.'Backbencher's '  had a general feeliiig that they did contribute considerably to the legislation.  That's what I feel we were elected for."  Lockstead said,he was amazed at the  amount of mail he received during the  session. "The mail was almost as heavy  on the last day as it was at the beginning. I got about 40 pieces of mail  a day. There's a lot of legwork involved  in it." He said most of the mail dealt  with people's problems.  "Some of the problems were unsolv-  able," he said. "Some time you can do  something . and sometimes you can't. I  feel I have been fairly successful one-to-  one basis problems. The civil service does  move slowly and sometimes it was frustrating to me, They do take their time  because they are checking all aspects  of a problem whereas I'm looking at it  from just one point of view. In the main,  the civil servants have been very cooperative. The cabinet ministers were, of  course, very busy but I found them very  approachable and if they could assist  with a problem, they did. I learned that  the best way to expedite problems was  to be right up on information.",  POLICY CHANGES  "Some people expected fast changes  in government policy," Lockstead said,  . "I received letters stating the government was moving too fast or not moving fast enough in making changes. There  haven't been too many 'not fast enough'  letters in the past six weeks because of  the amount of legislation passed. I'm  happy with the legislation passed. I feel  it is a new direction in politics. It indicates a general trend of change Jn B.C.  It is designed so more Canadian ond  B.C. citizens have a voice, in tho control  of our resources. We're no longer going  to be giving our resources away at bargain basement prices. Investment in tho  province is up. Business is not fleeing  the province ns predicted. Industry Is  prepared to talk with us and co-operate  but we've Just made it perfectly clear  that we are no longer n banana republic".  Talking about the controversial Bill  42, Lockstead said, "most people agreed  with BUI 42 even before the amendments.  Bill 42 is necessary; I support it wholeheartedly, it should have been in 20 years  ago before we started losing all this  valuable farm land." Lockstead said the  mail he received was overwhelming in  favor of the bill. He added that he agreed  with the amendments, which went in stating the small owner of agricultural property now -has the opportunity to go on  the municipal council or regional board  and appeal the situation.       .  -  "I'm happy to see that the "regional  board has a voice in this matter," the  MLA. ^dc4_7'Hhe regional boards now  have more responsibility than in the past.  It's7 now a /-'matter: 6f consultation and  communication. Generally there/, is a  spirit of co-operation rather than confrontation."      .7'.'       ���'*  Lockstead said' one of the minor bills  which pleased him personally was  the  homeowner's grant to Indian peoples retroactive to 1966. He   said he worked ,  very hard on that bill and was pleased i  when the premier listened and introduced  the bill. "This will indicate to the Indian  people that we are, listening," the MLA ;  said, adding that he could envision more .  legislation directed  toward Indian peo- ���  pie, "One thing," he said, "was the major j  services to Indian peoples. It's ridiculous |  to have a road or waterline running up  to a reserve and stopping on the edge."  The most frustrating part of the session," Lockstead said, "was the long-  winded debate where people spoke for l  hours and said nothing. One man who  did this only proved that he could talk  for 12 hours about nothing."   -   .  Lockstead said he was pleased about  the passage of Bill 35, the auto insurance  bill. "It's been one of our platforms for  years," he said, "and I'm glad to see it  go through. It is generally felt that the  people will be getting cheaper, more  reasonably priced auto insurance and the  auto Insurance dollars will stay in B.C.  for the development of the province. The  bill sets up the biggest Insurance company in North America in March, 1974,  and it's a tremendous job to set it up."  The purchase of Ocean Falls pleased  Lockstead. "Ocean Falls is likely to show  a dollar or two profit but the social con-  senquences are far more important. It  shows that B.C. is getting away from  the 'ledger book mentality'. We're not  Just looking at the money gained or lost  but in'tho social Impact, If Ocean Falls  had shut down, it would have closed that  part of tho coast. The fact is that there  were people working there and they  will now continue working there. In addition wo negotiated the purchase of 0.1  million acres ot B.C. land which will  now go back to tho people of the province. That's about $8 an aero not oven  counting tho $200 million In assets. There  would have been 3,600 people affected  if it had shutdown."  Lockstead said he was pleased about  the number of people who have kept  in touch with him. "I appreciate that kind  of contact," Lockstead said, "it gives me  a chance to help constructively."  Lockstead plans a tour of the constituency. "I want to travel and meet with  the people," he said, "and I want to  "listen** arid hear what people _re thinking. What it really amounts to i. keep- ������;  ingin touch."   ,       . ,7,  This* s-mijipr; L>cKst?ja<| ..will be tra- ;  veiling with"the 'forestry*and fisheries''  committee of the provincial government. .-  The conunittee will be looking at stream  protection and preserving the fishing industry in ..harmony with the logging in  the  province.  'Hie-committee    will  be  making recommendations to the govern- <  "ment. He is also on the committee on oil  spills which re-convenes in October and  on the mining and railways committee.  Lockstead said' he would, like to see the  committee structure  changed    so  that  mining and, forestry were under a single  committee of resources.  Lockstead admitted that being away  from home bothered him and resulted in  an increased work load on his wife. On  one occasion a surprise Saturday sitting  resulted in Mrs. Lockstead taking his  place on the speaker's podium at a local  meeting. "You have to have the co-opera-,  tion of your wife in this business," he  said. "She did an excellent job."  INTERIOR decorators' dream vases, large  or small.

SECHELT���Wednesday, May 1, 1918  dawned fair. Tne 18 or so students  enrolled in the Sechelt School awoke  with the expectation of a celebration _  awaiting them. The girls ddnned white  frocks, pulled on long white stockings,  and decked their hair with huge bows  of ribbon^ The boys, too, wore ^ their  Sunday best but their hair was clipped  so short above their ears, that it would  not have supported even an eagle's fea-'  ther as decoration. Their knickerbockers  were buckled just below the knee.  ��� Miss jGtfadys A. Tidy welcomed her  pupils at the schoolhouse at Porpoise Bay  and took them all out to gather wild  flowers. Some of the youngsters had  walked five miles or more along trails  or skid roads from West Sechelt or from  isolated farms or logging camps along  the shores of the Inlet. The school was "  the second Sechelt non-denominational  one and was used from approximately  early 1015 to about 1920. It was situated  on the east side' of the road and near  the bottom of the hill leading from Trail  Bay. Across -the road' from, the school  lay Porpoise Bay swamp, which was  crossed in those days by means of a  wooden trestle bridge, and which is now  being covered with filL  The first Sechelt School opened in  1912 on the Trail Bay waterfront and the.  third school was located in West Sechelt,  but at a different site than the present  West Sechelt School The trustees, when  Miss Tidy was teaching here, were Mrs.  Jane Nickson, Filed S. Deal and T. J.  (Johnny) Cook.  Apparently the scholars crossed the  trestle bridge to search for flowers because half a dozen of the older girls were  photographed posing in their finery on  a .high moss-covered rock amid the tree  tops, their long hair /garlanded with dog-  ' wood blossoms. Young Buddy McQuar-,  rie enjoyed himself peeping at the camera from behind the girls. I think the  gifbup may have been on the bluff behind Ted Osborne's house, but this is  only conjecture.  rBack in the schoolyard, which was  rajther small, rugged, and liberally furnished with stumps, the program included  races and games as well as the Maypole  dafnce. Not all the students participating  cari be identified now, but of those known  tof have been present on May Day 1918  the following can be related  I The tallest girl in Miss Tidy's class  wf_ Islay (pronounced Tla) Pindlay. She  arid her brothers Gordon and Alec were  'thjfe children of Dr. Alexander, McCaulay  Faidlay, veterinary surgeon, who had a  farm near the foot of Mason Road. The  . family later moved to Mission.  ^Beatrice Cope, a very pretty girl, and  one of her brothers were also in Miss  Tidy's class. They were the children of  Capt: John Stephen Cope and his \0fe,  B&sie, ��� ^hChad, a fajpi_. ^ndCihe  shKkemiU at Wilson Creek in the^arly.  days. Their house of 1917-18 was destroy-.  ed by fire on May 29, 1971, when occupied by Mrs. Connie MacDonald. Beatrice  C^pe married Milbur Hicks and had two  sons, John and Kenneth, who lived on  the Peninsula for many years. Capt.  Cope, who inherited a barony, was at  one time master of the steamship "Sechelt" which Bert Whitaker operated between Vancouver and various communities on the Peninsula. After he sold the  vessel she capsized and sank off Vancouver Island in March 1911 with the  loss of all lives aboard.  Elizabeth and Buddy McQuarrie were  the children of Mrs. F. P. McQuarrie,  who was the first school trustee in Sechelt, 1912-13. He subscribed the oath of  allegiance at Sechelt in November 1917,  so he may have been an American citizen  earlier. The family lived at West Porpoise  Bay.  Miss Tidy was 19 when she came to  teach in Sechelt in January 1917 at a  salary of 65 dollars per month. Her father was a captain with the Vancouver  Fire Dept She left Sechelt at the end  of 1918 and in 1919 married Wm. F.  Caldwell,.a brother of E. J. (Chief) Caldwell of Selma Park. The couple now live  in Salmon Ann and plan to visit the  Peninsula in the coming summer. The  acebmpanying illustrations are all from  Mrs. Caldwell's old photograph album,  which she found in a musty trunk and  generously permitted us to copy.  If any reader can identify the girls  not named in the captions with the illustrations we would very much appreciate  hearing about them.

Cancer facts  DIET may play a part in some forms of  cancer, according   to   the Canadian  Cancer Society.  , ' Stomach cancer is about twice as frequent in Newfoundland as it is in the  rest of Canada. Rates are similarly high in  Scandinavian countries and Iceland. In  these countries there are certain similarities in food habits. In people like the  Bantu, Javanese and Chinese, whose diets  are low in vitamins, cancer of the liver  is common.  . The age incidence of cancer is striking: in western countries, at least half  the cases occur after1 age 65, although  this age group constitutes only about 8  per cent of the total population.  At the other  end of life,  a group  of tumors that appear to be congenital  show up at birth or early in life. These  include retinoblastoma of the eye and  Wilm's tumor of the  kidney.  Cancer research in Canada and in  other countries is attempting to find the  "whys", and to come up with cures and.  controls for the many types of cancer.  SPRING can be a more deceptive andv  dangerous driving time than the middle of winter, the Insurance Bureau of  Canada warns. /  n According to the bureau, which represents automobile' insurance companies in  Canada, road conditions may appear to  improve with the disappearance of snow,  but spring runoff and salt residue' on  roads can make driving even more' treacherous, especially on highways.  Runoff water on highways can freezes  in patches during' the night, the bureau  points out. And, this condition can  change rapidly, depending- on temperature and location. For instance, bridges  and overpasses on highways freeze more  quickly and drivers may .come upon ice  conditions suddenly.  Salt residue also creates problems for  drivers. Lane lines can' be hard to see  against the white of a salted highway.  And water, mud and salt combine to '  obliterate road signs.  The bureau has a number of suggestions for drivers during this deceptive  driving period:  1) Make sure your window washers  have a good supply of solution. You can  be driving along perfectly dry roads and  suddenly run into a splash situation that  can wipe out your visibility.  2) If you are driving at night, make  sure your headlights are clean. Mud spray  picked up during the day can reduce the  effectiveness of your lights.  3) If you can't read a directional sign  from a normal distance, slow down;' you  may find it mud-splattered, thereby cutting down your knowledge of conditions  ahead. In such situations you should | be  able to recognize the message of m4ny  Signs by their shape. i -,  4) Be on  the  lookout  for potholes'1  caused by winter conditions. If you hit  one of these at speed, it could throw your  car out- of control.  5) When you see water on the highway, especially at night or in the early  morning, approach the area cautiously  until you know the condition of the road.  In fact, the bureau suggests cautious  driving at all times during spring road  conditions.  j-^enln&ula cJOlnina cJLc  .ounae  gt  SECHELT  885-2311  Cabi  iff*   Country, Cf  vUe&lern  Wit  ��� 9:30 p.m. - 1:30 a.m.  DANCE TO THE  are!

Committees to probe
Hopkins area floods
A REQUEST to study logging operations
and look, at the problem of drainage
in the Hopkins I_ih_ing area has been
referred to the Area F advisory commission and to the Sunshine Coast Regional
District's technical planning conunittee.
The regional board acted on the request of officers of the Hopkins Landing
Community   .'Association,    Elizabeth P.
4 Egan, president; Joyce Smethurst, treasurer and Dr. T. C. Webb, board member.
.The letter, signed by the three -com-
• munity officers, said that the reswehts
below Highway 101 between Soames
Point and the Salvation Army camp at
Langdale Creekv have been subjected to
flooding and property damage every winter for the last,three years.
'"This is entirely due to jthe^inadequacy
of the highways department's system of
culverts and the substantial increase in
the flow of water due to the paving of
North Road some years ago. So far, we
have been unable to persuade the department of highways to make anything but
temporary improvements after the yearly
"Further lpnd clearance above Highway 101 on this heavily wooded, steep
slope will compound the flooding problem and may cause land slippage which
could result in damage or injury to residents below the highway (I draw your
attention to the fiasco at Lions Bay.)
"We request that the regional board
suspend any application for subdivision
or logging in this area until a competent
engineer has considered all the possibilities for proper drainage—including perhaps the retaining of selected trees and
the highways department has implemented his recommendations."
Chairman Lome Wolverton said that
logging doesn't come under the regional
district authority.
Director J. H. Tyner of Area A said,
"This is a very important letter. We
can make recommendations to the forestry department"
Director Frank West of Area E, in
whose jurisdiction the matter falls, said ,
that "we want to control flooding."
Members moved that the letter be
referred to the two bodies:

GAMBIER Island—Tragedy hit a Vancouver family April 29- when ■ Eugene
Harvey, 46, fell from a small dinghy in
Long Bay and.drowned.
Gibsons RCMP said he was on his
way to a larger boat moored in the bay
when he slipped overboard.
His son, looking on from the dock,
tried to throw his father a lifebelt, but
it fell short.
Later, his son and a friend rowed
out to the spot and pulled Harvey's body
from the water.
Police felt the cold water and a heavy
overcoat Harvey was wearing contribute-
to the death.

That tops April 1972 _ figure of $1,173,-  200; F. A. Reyburn building inspector,  told the regional board at its Thursday  meeting.  "Construction continues to be concentrated in Pender Harbour, Halfmoon Bay  and Selma Park-Davis Bay area," Reyburn told the board.-In the three electoral  areas cited, building values accounted for  $219,000 of the April total of $355,000.  Most of the building is in the residential category and quality of homes is  high, he said.  "I have on hand three residences in  the 2,300 to 2,600 square foot area with  ��� values ranging from. $60,000 to $80,000.  "I have delayed the issuing of a permit  for an $80,000  home in the  Redrooffs  area having suggested to the' contractor  that the owner engage a soil engineer for  a soil stability report before commencing  ' construction of a home of this value.  "As previously stated,' the work load  is causing delays of up tp 10 days in the  issuance of building permits and correspondence. The average applicant has been  patient with this problem," he said.  Following is a breakdown of permits  issued for April to last Thursday:  Area A: four single-family dwellings,  $80,000.  Area B: three single-family dwellings,  two mobile homes, two accessory buildings, $96,000.  _Area C: %wo single-family dwellings,  one mobile home, one accessory building,  $43,000.

Indian Chiefs and the Raven Society  of B.C.. met. with provincial:cabinet mem-  ber��i;inV)th& c,^;.:^  77?I*i_fr^ was to pre  sent a brief oh provincial taxation as it  affects Indian lands.  One of the band's requests was that  the Provincial Home Acquisition Act be  amended to permit Indians to receive the  graht or loan in respect of eligible residential premises situated on a reserve.  The amended act has now been put  into,force.  Following is a rundown of the brief  as it appeared in The Native Voice, official organ of the Native Brotherhood  and the Raven Society.  The brief included a breakdown of  taxes paid to the provincial government  by the 200 non-Indian lessees of Sechelt  Indian Reserve lands over a period ot  four years (1969-72 inclusive) which  amounts to a total of $101,011.72. The purpose of documenting the facts regarding  the Sechelt Reserve lands leases was, to  point out the inequity in some of the  laws as they now exist.  Speclfica)ly, the Sechelt Band requested the following changes:  ���That Section 112 of the Land Registry Act be amended to read:  "For the purposes of subsections (1)  and (2) of this Section, if the lands subdivided have been surrendered by an  Indian Band to Her Majesty The Queen  in right of Canada pursuant to the 'Indian Act' of Canada for the purpose of  leasing only, and if the document evidencing such surrender is filed, the dedication to tho public of each portion of the  lands Bhown on the plan aa a highway,  park or public square, and vesting of title  thereto in the Crown in Right of the  Province shall be limited to the duration  of the surrender any renewals thereon."  ������That the provincial Municipal Act  ^4ntecpreted7^:^:.ift1y,,v.:;:'v-^^AAi-^/  ^-iiTeeognize registered Indian^^esid-  ents on British Columbia Indian Reserves  as "owner-electors" with all the responsibilities and power that go with that  electoral status."  ���That positive action be taken by the  provincial government so that the British  Columbia Reserves Mineral Resources Act  is repealed to allow Indian people of  British Columbia to negotiate for themselves in this area.  ���That the Home Acquisition Act  should be amended so that the grant,option under the Act is made available to  Indian people, specifically Section 2 of the  Act (Ch. 39 of Statutes of British Columbia) should be amended by adding the  following:  ".:.and includes, nowlthstanding the  aforestated, a parcel of land in an Indian  Reserve in whole or in part occupied by  an Indian and his household as his ordinary residence."  ���That 'owner' should be defined as:  "... with respect to an eligible residence situated within a Reserve as defined by the Indian Act, being Chapter  149 of the Revised Statutes of Canada,  195i."  , In the matter of water lot leases ond  riparian rights, the following request was  made:  "... that the provincial government  adopt a procedure of insisting upon written consent of Indian band councils before water lot applications are accepted  off or adjacent to the foreshore of lands  of the respective Indian band. And further, that the band council be afforded  the opportunity to comment on the crea-  tion of water lots off or adjacent to their  reserve lands by the same form and in the  same manner, as other land owners of this  tpxqvince.'.^:_^-' ,.     ,..,,���._._;__..  The band proposed that the relation-4  ship between Indian bands and adjacent  provincial-municipal lands be sufficiently  amicable to allow interaction to be established between the two, and that the  powers of each be recognized : by 7 the  other. The province should develop a  satisfactory vehicle to carry out the relationship.  The Sechelt band questioned the status of the Industrial-Commercial Loan  Program particuarly as it relates to the  Indian constituents of the province.  It asked that they be accorded the use  of the Provincial Land Reclamation Committee.  The provincial government was made  aware of the proposed closure of the Sechelt Indian Residential School as an  educational institution by the Department  of Indian Affairs and was offered the opportunity to discuss the utilization of the  structure for future use. One possible  use could be as an Indian Education Resource Centre as suggested by the Hon.  Eileen Dailly, minister of education, in  her address to the UBCIC Conference  In Prince Rupert last November.  The delegates felt they had been re7  celved favorably by the cabinet and are  looking forward to an early answer to  their submission.  mmmmmmmmmmam  mimmmiitmMnmmmKi^mmmit^  Tho Corporation of tho Vlllago of Socholt  RECREATION COMMITTEE  1  Sechelt  f7>  To all Local Merchants,  Organizations and Service Clubs:  HOMELITE  CHAIN SAWS  As you havo no doubt, heard tho Secholt May Day lives  again, only In an improved form.

The importance of chewing high phosphate foods was determined by experiments with rots that were surgically joined at the intestines and abdomens.  The continuing experiments are also  expected to help dental scientists studying how antibiotics nnd other drugs and  mouthwashes would protect teeth and  gums from disease.  The surgery was done under microscopes to rata that had not yet grown  teeth. Special feeders allowed tho animal  on the right to feed only from the right  feeder and its artificial twin to feed  from the left.  One rat from each pair was fed a, diet  containing a highly purified phosphate.  The other "twin" received tho same food  but without the phosphate. Both animals,  due to their Joined digestive systems, absorbed tho same diet into their' blood  streams, yet the rats chewing the phosphate had less decay than their twins.  Foods high in phosphorus include egg  yolk, cheese, mlllc, wholo grain, cereals  and meats,  Other research projects have shown  the protective characteristics of phosphates and one cereal maker In co-operating in, a study, to see how phosphate-  enriched foods fight decay in nUitidents.

' During her 54 years residence in Sechelt she undertook a wide variety of  activities and worked effectively for the  causes in which she was Interested. May  I confine myself here to one little-known  phase of her contribution- to her com-'  munity.  - When Alice French came to Sechelt in  1919 as the English war-bride of Francis  French, her father-in-law, W. J. French,  was a schools trustee. Old. Mr. French  had settled at Porpoise Bay during the  first decade of this century and earlier  he operated a butcher shop in New Westminster. His brother, _>t. CoL George Arthur French, was appointed first com-  - missioner of the North West Mounted  Police on October 18, 1873, just a century  ago.  ' W. J. French told the young Alice that  she should interest herself in the school  which was' taken at Porpoise Pay. He  thought the site should be altered to  West Sechelt-where families were settling  after1 the war. Alice herself was a member of the first board of trustees when  the new school was erected on what is  now Norwest Bay Road, probably in'  1921, although 1920 is also a possibility.  The land was donated by Bill Mitchell,  a World War I veteran. It lay a little  ^farther, up .the hill than the Nickerson  9 Road turnoff and should not be confused  with the site of the present West Sechelt  Elementary School.  Frank French was appointed the first  provincial police constable in Sechelt in  1919. He and a group of other men living  COMMERCIAL PRINTING  RUBBER STAMPS  see TH$ TIMES  in the neighborhood of Mason. Road joined together to do the actual building oi  the school. He secured the desks to  boards which could be carrirecl out of  the schoolroom to clear the building for.  other activities. N v-  Bert Whitaker donated an organ to  the school and Mrs. French remembered  that he used to play it himself.  The original West Sechelt schoolhouse  was used for almost 20 years and was  superseded by Sechelt United School  Opening ceremonies in this new institution, between Cowrie and Dolphin Streets  and Ocean and Shorricliffe Avenues, were  held on March 6, 1939. Efforts were then  made to sell the old schoolhouse on Nor*  west Bay Road but without success and  the building w_s-,Jboarded up for seven  years. At the last meeting of the local  school board on March 6, 1946 before the  larger School District No. 46 took over,  "The secretary was 'instructed to interview Mr. Crucil of the Crucil Logging Co.  and ask him if he would undertake the  moving of the school." Thus the old  West Sechelt 'School was transported  down the hill and highway to be set up  adjacent to Shorncliffe Avenue, where it  still serves as a kindergarten classroom.  This kindergarten building now has  five windows instead of the original four  on the south side, and the old wooden  exterior has been stuccoed over. A fairly  small extension added on the front provided space for the extra window and.  for indoor plumbing facilities. The original structure was probably about 30x24  feet.  Mrs. French's friends will wonder why  I have devoted so many Words to the  school instead of mentioning her humer-  , ous other interests. The reason is that  Mrs. French recently assisted me generously with her knowledge in the compilation of a history of the village's pioneer schools and she was keen, to see  in print some record of the early one  in West Sechelt. Our kindergarten building is over half a century old and I suppose will need to be replaced before too  many years have passed. Instead of demolishing it then, would it not be possible to preserve the ancient edifice as  a memorial to Mrs. French, her family  and early neighbors,    7  Ernest Wong  Social worker  named for area  NEW social  worker  on  the  Sunshine  Coast is Ernest Wong.  Wong will work out of the Sechelt  office of the department oi rehabiliation  and social work but will service the Gibsons area.  Judy Froesen serves the area from  Sechelt north. Anna Cuylits is a social  worker for the Sechelt Indian band.  No stranger to the Sunshine Coast,  Wong has been coming here two days a  week since November. He started full  time last month. He said that he had  worked in Sechelt in 1967-69 as a social  worker and prior to that was with the  department of rehabilitation.  He said that the area he will service  starts roughly at Wilson Creek and includes all the area to Port Mellon. He  said that he will possibly serve Keats and  Gambier islands, as weU.  A native Vancouverite, Wong was  raised in the city and in 1970 obtained his  masters degree in social work from the  University of British Columbia.  Wong and his wife will make their,  permanent home on the Coast .They have  no.children.  He said that he is interested in photography and -ishing as hobbies.  from the pulpit  .  >     ���by Pastor, Gerry Foster,  Gibsons Penrccostol Church  THOUSANDS of years ago in the Garden of Eden the devil came along and  tempted our first parents, Adam and Eve.  Part of his subtle presentation was to  suggest to them that if they ate of a  certain tree they would "be like God;'.  Man listened to the "devil and disobeyed  God.  ~ From this incident right up until the  present mankind has disregarded God,  dismissing any idea that we need Hun.  We believed Satan's lie and now feel we  can make it on our own. Who needs God?  ���~ I can cut it apart from God we say. The  story of everyone's life is a continual  attempt to invent some sort of happiness  and satisfaction outside God. But it does  ' not work.  The reason it can never succeed is that  God made us, He created us in such a  way that we cannot be happy without  Him. A car is made to run on fuel, and  we were made to run on GocL Only by  returning to God through Jesus Christ  will your search ofr meaning and contentment be over.
