Service held essential  Ferry strike ban  urged by chamber  SECHELT-^-Sechelt and District Chamber  of Commerce executive will forward  a resolution to the B.C. government seeking legislation prohibiting future strikes  by B.C. ferries workers.  The evecutive made the resolution following a similar resolution passed by  the Associated Chambers of Commerce  of  Vancouver  Island.  Members   of. the  woiild not stand for persons to block off  the ^highway at say, Middlepoint. The  police would be there in a hurry and  move and charge any persons obstructing  traffic.  "What's so different about the ferry  service. It's our highway. Besides tourists  -we get our food, drink, gasoline, clothes  and other essential items through it. This  Sechelt chamber feel the ferry ,sy$te��_. ;s;iwO^JfettSta__iHg:";$re_:, We  are  must be designated an essential service.  The chamber's resolution follows:  "The ferry service is a part of the  highway and communications system of  the province and, as such, the service  should not be interrupted.  "The issue of the right to strike is  peripheral to the main issue: the life of  the Sunshine Coast depends upon the -  ferry system." .     ,  There was no dissent at the executive  meeting.  Copies of The Times' editorial and  news published during the strike were  sent along with the resolution to bolster  the chaimber!s position.  During the strike, The Times editorialized:  "The  government  knows  that  ferry  workers-operating , an   essential   service-  " should not be allowed to strike . . .  ". . . The ferry service is an extension  of highways - in this case it's an extension  of Highway  101. The  government  wholly dependent on the Mainland for  our supplies."  A letter from Graham l_��a, provincial  highways minister, was received regarding upgrading of Highway 101.

In a hastily-prepared feasibility v Trustee Bill Nimmo felt: "We're  study,- the .firm also noted that re-'1     ' !     :        :  construction of the school in two  phases would cost an additional  $75,000. . *     N 7  Trustees had requested the Van-,  couver architects to look into the pos* ���  sibility of rebuilding Elphinstone in  two stages, with the first phase otj  43,000 square feet to go ahead as soon  as possible and the second to be -  constructed if the board decided ,  against building a new junior-secon- '���  dary school in the Sechelt area.       .$.

This compares to $1,577,000 for a,  single-phase program.  Construction of a senior-secondary���only facility was estimated at  $1,282,000.  Discussing the feasibility study at  the board's Sept. 13 meeting, trustee  Peter Precesky noted that these figures did not include such costs as -  architects' fees. "This would bring  the cost up by at least $100,000 in  each case," he said.  Chairman Agnes Labonte pinpointed the urgency of notifying the  board's architects which of the reconstruction alternatives trustees  favored.  "We must give the architects a  decision," she said. "^There's no point,  in them carrying on without know*  ing where they're- going."  Trhstee John MacLeod felt: "We  must have a long, hard look at rebuilding Elphinstone for 500 to 600  students and at the cost of a new  school in the Sechelt area."  Secretary-treasurer J. S. Metzler  said that the final insurance settlement probably would not be made,  until Oct. 15. In the meantime, the  board has been given an interim  payment of $250,000 to pay contractors for Work already completed on  the site  down the line.'  The board agreed to give the  Elphinstone teaching staff an opportunity to study preliminary proposals and make suggestions on the  This, they were expected1 to do  Sept. 17.

"We are entitled to 100 per cent  replacement cost, but the problem is  in deciding what the 100 per cent  replacement cost is."  Mrs. Labonte said the board was  "quite in the dark" as to the final  settlement.

This year's cast remains virtually the  same, with Bruno Gerussi starring as  the poetic, piratical and raffish Nick Ado-  nldas the log salvager; Bob Park as Hugh  Canrtody, Pot John as Jesse Jim, Robert  Clothier as Relic and Rae Brown as  Molly Carmody.  The only change In cast ia U-year-  old Juliet Randall, who replaces Nancy  Chappie an Margaret Carmody.  Main writer for the series is Merv  Campone. Directors are Ken Jubenvill,  Elie Savoic, Michael Berry and Hugh  Beard. Director of photography is Roy  Luckow. Some of the production crew  arc veterans of Kcatlcy's successful Cariboo Country scries seen on CBC television in 1000-67.  Filming for this year's series began the  first week of April at Gibsons, and good  weather prevailed to the delight of nil  ���until the rains came in June. Bad weather hampers filming unless you're film  ing bad weather, said Keatley.    __  Then there was the Spirit, a fishing  boat which crossed everyone up so often  that nobody laughed after a while. In  its first dramatic stint on location at  Keats Island, old Relic, played by Robert  Clothier, was supposed to ��� salvage the  Spirit after finding It abandoned. It sank  with him in it.  After that, whenever they wanted it  to float, lt sank���whenever they wonted  lt to sink, it floated. One day, they wanted to sink it, loaded it with 800 pounds  of concrete and knocked some holes in  its hull. By sunsot, it was still afloat and  tho crew plugged the holea ond retired  for tho night, thinking they'd finish it off  In the morning. When they woke up, Jt  'was nt tho bottom.  Finally, when time had run out and  Oven the oxpert advice of professional  boatmen had proved invalid with the  Spirit, It was decided to take the Spirit  away on a flatbed truck until the water  clears enough (In October) for underwater filming; In ono last gesture of defiance, Uio Spirit, rolled'off tho flatbed nnd  broke some ribs. It's still there, a sullen,  haunting hulk that hm to bo repaired  for itfl underwater seines.  "Ah for Gibsons, where The Bcach-  combeni Is being filmed, lt 1b a beautiful  location, It's on tho const, tucked into a  harbor between n couple of inlands and  hills which quickly give way to mountains.

The survey is aimed at collecting  statistics on the actual incomes of senior  citizens in the province witji a view to  possibly increasing the Mincome level.  Of 300 questionnaires distributed to  OAPs on the Sunshine Coast, less than  half have been completed and returned  to the department.  Mrs. Westell's assignment is to assist  the 105 remaining pensioners in filling  out their questionnaires.  Sechelt social worker Ernest Wong  told The Times that the follow-up campaign was slotcd to end in mid-September, but predicted the local area probably  would gain an extension until the end  of the month to allow Mrs. Westell to  contact all pensioners Involved.  Local senior citizens who may havo  experienced difficulty completing their  Mincome survey forms are urged to contact Mrs. Westell at 005-9422.  Completion of the form?, will be to  their advantage, stressed Wong1.  ADA DAWE, second from left,, is  honored by fellow-members of Sechelt Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital.

Ada Dawe honored by  St. Mary's Auxiliary  by Peggy Connoar  SECHELT���It was Mrs. Rosa Swan's pleasure to be the one to award Mrs. Ada  Dawe a life membership Sept. 14 in the  Sechelt Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital.  Mrs. Dawe attended the first meeting  of  the auxiliary held Jan.  12,   1001   at  the home of Mrs. Bea Swanson, Sechelt,  where Mrs. Swan was elected president.  What did Mrs. Dawe do to merit this  award?  Perhaps  it would be  easier  to  tell what she hasn't done, for Ada has  been  greatly  interested  in every  phase  of the nuxlliai-y work, taking part more  than her share, The first raffle was in  her  capable  hands, followed  by  many  more, She attended conventions In 1001,  62, 53, 04 and '09, plus many regional  conferences.  This  was  complete  attendance, as shown by the reports she brought  back, Mrs, Dawe gleaned much worthwhile material from the conventions and  so benefited our auxiliary.  In 1907 she represented tho auxiliary  with Mrs. Irma Laycock and the late Mrs.  Betty Williams at a Thanksgiving service  for Canada's Confederation Centennial.  Acla was in charge of the gift box  and later was way6 and means convenor  of the auxiliary.  Mrs. Browning and Ada also worked  on the B.C. Hydro cooking demonstration. \  In 1003, Ada suggested we start a  memorial fund and use the money for  some specific purpose In the new hospital.  It was Mrs. Dawe who moved that wo  ask the hospital board to occasionally invite one or two members to attend their  meetings as representatives of the Auxiliary. Today two women servo on the  , board.  , She suggested that the auxiliary think  of offering a scholarship in nursling In  March 1905.

One of the directors went to see  25 years for CARS  THIS year is the 25th anniversary of  the Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society, known in every B.C; community as CARS. This is where the fight  against arthritis in Canada all began  through the work of Mary Pack, an en-  ' These services come through physiotherapists working from 57 B.C. hospitals, through travelling medical consultants, whose specialty is rheumatic disease; through occupational therapy vans,  equipped with aids to keep patients in-  '*ergetic B.C. woman, who was so con-    dependent in their home setting.  cerned about the lack of knowledge and  facilities for treating patients with arthritis, that she-set about to do something  about it. These efforts resulted in the  formation of a Canada-wide organization, with the B.C. Division being the  first one formed, to focus attention on  a disease which has disabled man since  the beginning of time.  As a result of her work, in which she  involved thousands of British Columbians, CARS today has far-reaching programs, fanning out from the Arthritis  Centre in Vancouver, the only one of its  kind in North America,, to all corners  of the province.^  Twenty-five years ago these services  were non-existent. During these years  60 thousand patients have been treated  in B.C. by the CARS team. There is still  a long way to go even though great  strides have been made. For many types  of iheaumatic disease, there is no known  cause or cure.  Educational work must continue so  that patients, are aware that early diagnosis and treatment can prevent disabilities in 80 percent of all cases of arteritis  and that research is the key word for a  future- free of a disease which is no  respecter of age, sex or socio-economic  level.      ' '      -v.  What about inflation ?  most(  Whatever  that  MP HARRY Olaussen, unhappy with  a quote attributed to him in reference to spiralling food prices, feels that  undue emphasis was given.'.to;'his' remark*. But he may have beeh right on.  At a brief meeting before the Sea  Cavalcade parade, The Times asked  Olaussen what his feelings were about  increasing costs. As quoted in the column  Sunshine Coastings, Olaussen shrugged  his shoulders and said that it's a worldwide problem and that he didn't think ���  much could.be done.  Olaussen, in a letter to the editor  on this page, feels that too much stress  was put on his comment.  Actually, he was closer to the mark  thari he gives himself credit for. Prime  Minister Trudeau last week said that  inflation is a world-wide problem. At  any rate Olaussen sent a copy of Tru-  deau's Sept. 4 statement to Parliament  on food prices, cost of living and infla-  tiOBr.  The Coast-Chilcotin member underlined several items in the prime minister's report.  First item was the government's intention to nearly triple family allowances. For instance, a family how receive  ing $20 per month would receive $36.  Such an aet_MJj5do^.=���K>t7  inflation, it only adtfsto .tr"MJfif such  a move were effective, it only takes into  .; consideration families with children.  i How about young couples without children, or others whose children have  grown?  Also underlined were these Trudeau  comments:  ���Measures to conserve and increase  the supply of food while protecting  farm incomes;  ���Measures to protect the consumer  against unwarranted price increases.  (We have yet to see this in action  to any extent.)  ���Measures to mitigate the effect of  rising prices,  especially  on those  This  is a  $10.00 SPOT!

Also, Trudeau's announcement to  impose; temporary export controls on  beef and pork; was cited by the member.  Parliament will be asked to escalate  pensions every three months instead of  every year. Again, this does not combat  inflation.  A Times reader, Mrs. Jan Peterson  of West Sechelt, suggested that a price  freeze be instituted immediately and that  increases be rolled back to June 1. She  didn't get much support from Sunshine  Coast consumers on this on. Olaussen  answered her letter,' however.  Following are other Trudeau comments: _y. .  "Legislation will be introduced to  remove the 2 per cent ceiling on the  annual escalation of pensions paid under  die Canada Pension Plan.  "As for private pensions, the government proposes to remove the provision that only employee pension plans  with a 2 per cent maximum on the annual escalation of pensions being paid  may be registered under the Income Tax  Act.     ������;  >-;. ������"..���'".'  "The government has already introduced a measure which will assist families with children to meet higher living  costs: the virtual tripling of family allowances in Jamjary 1974 to an average  of $20* (per'child) per month.  ". _. Another area of concern to Canadians and the government is in the  prices of gasoline and heating oil."  Trudeau last week outlined a two-  price system for Canadian oil.  His comments, prior to the announcement follow:  "... The price of crude oil, has  risen along with international prices. In  part this is because about half of Canadian production is sold in United States  markets where increasing reliance on  foreign supplies has made the United  Stateis vulnerable to foreign prices. Canadian crude oil production has consequently been sold in the U.S. at the op-  Recreational site held  ideal lor high school  Editor, The Times, y    '?  Sir: It has been _>ix years since we>  came to the Peninsula with our mortgage^ car and shirt monies used, to start  up a variety store. We felt we had a  service to offer to the area and feel now  ,that we have filled the void. It-has not  been that easy, in a few cases the dollars  would just not stretch far enough. Consequently, we have had our fears that the  hole in the boat was going to take us  under and the spiralling cost of operating is not lessening.. As a matter of  fact, it keeps one continually trying to  figure out ways to cut down expenses so  as to maintain our low prices.  An operation can only absorb so  much and a young growing company  has a hard time to absorb any of it. It  is for these reasons that I am writing  this letter about ferry traffic, schools  and recreation.  In order for us to keep our operating  costs down to a workable percentage, we  need sales and with the/10,000 people  we have on this Peninsula, it's just not  enough; not to mention the rich few  who are able to afford to,go to the big  city to do their shopping. If they would  only stop and think that if they spent  that money here it might give their son  or daughter a job during the summer  months. The more one supports his area  the easier: it makes it for everybody.  We need people wit}, money; this is  why we need good ferry service; we need  it not only for local all-year, residents;  we need it for our good friends and neighbors���the summer and weekend residents.  If we are going to have designated-lanes  for local traffic then these people should  positively be included and .they should  also have a commuter card. They bother  nobody. Just as soon as they disembark  they disappear off into their retreat of  a beach house or whatever and maybe  come out a couple timers a week to do  some  grocery shopping,, buy  a pair of  runners for the kids and a couple of  sheets of plywood and a pound of nail-  to keep papa busy. These people say, our  prices are not that bad, matter of fact get-;  ting to know a fewy they have stated  Peninsula prices are' as good and some-  times better than in town. We need to  look after these people, give them commuter cards if they own property. Giye  them the benefit of a fast lane so that  they can enjoy their eventually full-time  home,  during    the  summer  ahd    long  weekends. The bucks they leave behind  help pay for some of our luxuries that  we can't afford.  I am not in favor of the high school  being built on the present site not. that  I am against a school in Gibsons as  such. What I would like to see is a  ^school built that we can be proud to send  our children; to, knowing; that they will  get a good education and _e equipped  to go out and earn a living. Our government goes out and buys plants (Ocean  Falls) in order to save two or three hundred jobs that could have been relocated  as they,already have their profession.  How many young people are going to  go into our work force from our local  high school in the next few years non-  equipped? I say let's build a high school  in the Roberts Rreek area, namely the  recreation site, a high school with all the  facilities, recreation area could be built  around it. Skating, curling, golf course  next door, rugby, hardball court, track  and field, there's lots of room and what  an ideal setting for a regional college.  The environment for study is there staring us in the face. It's central enough for  all to use. I know there are some organ-  obtain what they desire no matter how  or who it hurts in doing so: There should  be a way to satisfy their needs withbut  bringing thousands' out of a job who  are not on strike. Interference in the  matters of communications ,and transportation should never be tolerated. little  thought is given by labor regarding 25  per cent of our aged people and others  who are finding it difficult to obtain the  necessities   of   life.- ' -  In closing, let me make a statement  to labor ,and management: If you do not  find a better .method of meeting your  difference's  then    the  economy  of  this  "country is going to live in hard times.  I question, in taking into 'consideration the financial obligations the average  worker must face, whether. they have  gained any benefits from this ever-rising  wage scale. Time alone will tell.  THOMAS FARBINGTON  5384 Chisham Ave., South Burnaby, B.C.  Olaussen says NDP  combating intlation  Editor, The Times,  Sir: I was disappointed to notice the  emphasis placed, on my brief reply to  the editor's question regarding the cost  of living made prior to the Sea Cavalcade  parade in Gibsons (The Times, Sunshine.  Coasting, Sept. 5).  The emphasis implied that I, and my  party were either unwilling pr incapable  of grappling with this national problem.  I would like to mention that we're  , the only party to be recalled to Ottawa  recently for an emergency caucus meeting to. discuss all aspects of the cost of  living. As a result of that meeting we  put forward demands for the government  to act, upon in the interests of all Canadians.  ' The government has since implemented most of our demands during the special session of Parliament that is now sitting.  I have also replied to Mrs. Peterson's  letter regarding the cost of living. Unfor-:  . tupately, her letter was sent to me in  Powell River where it sat for almost two  weeks before being forwarded to me as  my landlady was away on her holicjiays.  AH letters should be addressed to me  c/o House of Commons, Ottawa, whether  or hot the House is in session; No postage  required.;  . Thanking you and everyone else for  the ,great concern shown in the high  cost of living and hoping that measures  being taken now will deal successfully  with this problem.  HARRY OLAUSSEN, MP.  Coast-Chilcotin  Thanks to Ben Lang  Editor, The Times,  7;o,Sir: Iyyould like.;to express my ap-,  preciatioriT to Mayor ;Ben"Lahjg for the  service he has rendered this community.  Such public-spirited citizens should be  commended. Ben Lang has been active  here in business and as an alderman and  mayor. During his two-year term, Mayor  Lang has initiated needed municipal legislation for Sechelt.  Thank you fojr your good works, Mr.  Mayor, and bon voyage.  Box 555, Sechelt NORA COLPITTS  portunity prices available and domestic    zations that are interested in putting up  Canadian consumer has seen this U.S  demand raise his prices too."  U.S. oil importers have indicated that  they will accept a price increase on Canadian oil as long as they can pass it  to their consumers.  This doesn't sound like fighting inflation���it sound like it is adding to it.  If oil costs to the U.S. are increased  with the hike passed along to the consumer, it stands to reason that reciprocal  action will be taken which means U.S.  goods sold in Canada will be increased.

Lockstead:  Sir: We the undersigned, all old age  pensioners on fixed incomes, who although we are not members of the Gibsons OAP Assoc, are nevertheless in  complete agreement with their expressed  view that we should not be compelled to  suffer a tax imposed on our homes in  the event that a referendum is taken approving construction of a Sunshine Coast  Recreation Centre. We do not subscribe  to the statements made by the supporters  of the centre that we could "enjoy the  facilities" as none of us could ever enjoy anything Into which we had been  forced against our will, even though our  limited means were insufficient to bear  the increased taxation. '  We urge you to give our plea at least  as much sympathetic consideration as we  received from your predecessor, Dan  Campbell, the previous minteter of municipal affairs, 'In fact, we would even  hope for something better than anything  tho Socrcds could offer, particularly  when we recall Premier Barrett's election promise that his government would  bo a peoples' government, presuming  that ho meant all the people. For many  years wo huvo made our contribution to  tho expanding economy of this province  and now that we are no longer able to  bargain as members of It's work force,  we would welcome the prospect of being  relieved of some of our tax burden, particularly a tax of the above nature.  Signed: E. Birchenall  Below this were appended the signatures of 12 pensioners nnd to show the  authenticity of these 12 Individual, each  olgnalura njavo' his or her pension number.  The letter was addressed not to Lock-  titoud an wan formerly intended, but to  Lorimer, minister of municipal uffalra  In tho NDP government.  Lockatead'a InlUnl reaction to our ro-  qucit for action on tho above matter  wun anything but, favorable. In fact, ho  ntatcd to this render that wince I owned  my own home, "You nro bettor off than  moat of us"! Nolo, uhI But ho bucked off  nomewh-t when I pointed out that unlike  him-elf. the province of British Columbia  was not paying mo tho sum of $10,000  for a few weeltH work, plus tho odd thou-  recreation facilities. The whole complex  could be used by all the people of the  area 12 months of the year. Local people  could further their children's education  by not having the burden of sending their  children away, finding a boarding house,  etc., at a terrific expense, plus the fact  they wouldn't have to send them to ft  large city where the environment has a  lot to be desired.  Be damned with closed meetings, politics and personal animosities; let's do  something for the are and more important  for you. If we had a good school, with  proper teaching equipment and recreation  benefits, consider the quality teachers  who would want to stay and come to  teach in this area. The school board could  sell the Gibsons' site���what a natural  place to extend the present shopping  center (that hurts) to a shopping area  tho Gibsons people could be proud of.  Tho area is growing and going to  grow more. All of Canada Is; why shpuld  wo be backward and not grow too? If  you want to do something for tho young  people let's do it now, it will pay dtvl-  dents nnd wo all can Join In and hnvo  a llttlo recreation too with the monoy  available from provincial and federal  grants? Why not? Yours for a growing  future.  Selmo Park NEIL CAMPBELL  Labor demands  criticized  Editor, The Times,  Sir: I note In your Issue of Sept. 5,  a letter by T. Sherwood, Box 034, Section, attacking you for your editorial,  Aug. 22. Mr. Sherwood assumed that you  wore opposed to any form of organized  labor. Does Mr. Sherwood behove that  only labor ban n volco in what nhould and  should not bo done in tho operations of  thla country? I am ono of those workcru  who helped lay tho foundations upon  which waa built tho city of Vancouver  Let mo stnto that 03 years ago I worlu  td 10 hours n day at Iho ra|e of pay of  20 cents an hour, no coffee break, no out-  of-work pay, no fringe benefits, and no / ����ud Bnrrett threw htu wuy an a reward  rotlromont pension. It ia true labor con- ' for being on some committee or other,  quest, I sent him a copy just'to,ensure  that Lorimer *tlid indeed get our message; not that Lorimer showed any concern for our plea as no reply to our letter was ever forthcoming from that quarter!      -   \  On December 28 I received the following reply from Lockstead: "Thank you  for your letter of Dec. 9. I intend to  make personal representation to the minister of municipal affairs in this case and  see if it is possible for old age pensioners to be exempted from additional taxes for the Recreation Centre.  .Two months rolled by but still no  further communication from either dear  Donald or his buddy, Lorimer. So in a  letter dated Feb.-26 I reminded hun of  his promise. Here is a copy of the literary gem I received from our fledgling  MLA dated March .8, 1973.  Thank you for your letter of Feb. 26  regarding property taxes paid by senior  citizens. I have spoken to the minister*  about the matter and your suggestion  and the party policy in regard to school  tax on private property is being reviewed at this time by the1 government.  I have just heard it announced that  the fall session of the Legislature will  be worth to Mr. Lockstead, not $10,000  but the handsome sum of $12,000! To this  I can only add that if he can't keep the  . record straight for ten grand, I can't see  how he's worth another two to get it  loused up any further! Presently he's  , hitting the local headlines with bis stunt  of securing preferential treatment at the  ferry terminal for permanent residents of  this area but is receiving quite some flak  from others who will not be So privileged. If he really wants to involve himself in what at the moment isx a lost  cause, I suggest that - he bombard his  other buddy, Strachan, with repeated requests and more requests for a car deck  \ toilet on the ferry. E, BIRCHENALL  Gibsons  No trespassing signs  'comorise' board  EDITOR'S note: The following letter Was  addressed to the Sunhine Coast Regional District board of directors: A copy  was forwarded to Don Lockstead, MLA  and the author submitted a copy of The  Times/for publication.  The Secretary,  Sunshine Coast Regional Board,"  Davis, Bay, B.C. ���  ' It would seem that the Regional Board  has put itself into a very compromising  position in relation to the Chapman Creek  watershed area. A position which by itself, it is unable to resolve.  Another gate has appeared on the  West Road of the Wilson Creek logging  road, placed there- by Jackson Brother-  Logging with the blessing of the Regional  Board. A sign which proclaims that this  is now, a restricted area and that trespassers will be prosecuted by the Regional Board makes this abundantly clear.  During the latter part of last year an  area was logged at the far end of the  West Road but the logs were not brought  out due, presumably, to the lateness of  the season. We were told at the time that  this was the extent of the logging to be  allowed in this area.  Since the new gate was installed we  find that the logging operation has started with renewed vigor. It would seem to  be too much of a coincidence that this  should start immediately after so called  unauthorized people were barred on the  ground that this was a watershed and as  such should be protected.  Last year the Regional Board approved an OFY scheme to establish a trail  into the Chapman Lake area at a cost of  about $4000.of the taxpayers money. The  trail has now been well established and  has been well used by people who enjoy  hiking and back, packing. There is no  garbage or litter to be found and this  fact alone would give some indication  of the sort of people using the trail,  people who appreciate their surroundings  and do not wish to spoil them in any way.  Now  the  trail  has   been   closed  off   to  what was happening for himself and  said that as far as he could telr no logging should be going on in the creek  area but that~the Regional Board was  powerless to stopv it-themselves.  , There would appear to be so many  inconsistencies in this matter that could  stand study by someone removed from  the Regional Board or~the logging industry and the idea of this letter is to  cpen the door to discussion and to introduce some of the facts as known to  the public at large in order to get^some  dialogue going.  It should be pointed out that this  "etter does not set out to .criticize individuals but rather to question the system  which allows such things as this to happen.  J.

FUNDS FOR medical aid to Vietnam   Sandra   Simpson. F u n.d s  were raised by a dance and car wash  sponsored by St. Mary's Hospital employees. Here, Lorraine Gavin, left,  president; of Hospital Employees  Union 180 hands a cheque for $306 to  amount pf $166 from the same events  were given to Sechelt and District  Retarded Children's Association last  week.  Parents protest overcrowding . .  9  slated for Langdale  UNDER pressure from almost 30 parents  who had crowded into the Sechelt  school district offices Sept. 13, the board  agreed to hire an additional kindergarten  teacher and start a class at Langdale.  The.parents submitted a.48-signature  pefttiipmtdHru^  ^-b^aed?' coiiditidh- at?thfe;^ist_a^kihM;-  dergarten in Gibsons.  _ Superintendent   Roland   Hanna   told  petitioners that he supported the move  educationally, but "there is no equipment  at Langdale and this is estimated to cost'  around $1200."  He also pinpointed the problem of  transporting kindergarten pupils to Langdale.  "The children can get a ride on the  school bus if there is space on it," he  said.  Hanna noted that the provincial government was conducting a survey into the  number of additional buses that would  be required if kindergarten was made  compulsory.  Dave Remple, principal of Gibsons Elemental^., where present kindergarten  classes are held, denied that the classrooms were overcrowded.  ���He pointed out that the 88 pupils attending kindergarten were taught in a  double classroom with a divider. Two  teachers taught two classes each day,  making for a class size below the department of education maximum.  Spokesman for the petitioners, Ray  Machon, felt a divider between two classes was insufficient.  "If there is a distraction on one side  of the divider, all the children are distracted," he said. "And the teacher's attention is spread too thin.  "A divider means nothing. It is the  same as teaching a class of double the  sire."  Mrs., Fay Blrkln, a kindergarten teacher In Gibsons, said staff would be  spread even thinner If a Langdale class  was started.  " "We would have to travel between  Gibsons .and Langdale.. nnd we wouldn't  be able to take advnntogo of duplication of work," she said.  Machon said that no additional travelling would bo necessnry. "Our intention is that the board hires another teacher."  ��� '.Trustee  Bill   Nimmo saw   no  reason  Why a class should not be Instituted at  Langdale "if we can come up with the  accommodation."  Secretary-treas. J. S. Metzler said financing for a Langdale class would have  to come out of the district's reserve ac-  . count "ii we can find anything", in view  -jjf .the., Elphinstone crisis.    .    y-'''-'-^d;'L-Mich6hii!-"_^--'ai-a is growing  in leaps and bounds and we will have  to look at the kindergarten situation  now.'  lie requested the.board to give serious consideration to hiring another teacher for a Langdale kindergarten.  Nimmo countered: "The area might  be growing by leaps and bounds, but ev-  k eryhody must be keeping the balance  with the birth control piU because the  school population isn't leaping and bounding."  On the motion of Trustee Pat Murphy,  the board agreed to hire a half-time teacher and institute a kindergarten class  at Langdale.  The petitioners left jubilantly.  <    Under other business, trustees agreed  to hire a remedial teacher for the Sechelt elementary schools.  Previously, the Department of Indian  Affairs employed a remedial teacher, but  it recently withdrew from the program.  Hanna said it was unlikely that the  DIA would be willing to share the cost  of a replacement, "but I'll try."  Joan Rigby was appointed returning  officer for the school board election Nov.  17. Nominatidns close Oct. 29.  This year, five seats will open. Chairman Agnes Labonte, the Gibsons; village  representative, will defend her seat along  with area B trustees Bill Nimmo, Joe  Horvath and John McLeod.   ���  Mrs. Labonte suggested a review of  parking restrictions outside Gibsons Elementary School. At present, tho area is  designated 'no parking1, although parents  are permitted to wait for their children.  The board wished "all success" to 17  Elphlnstone Secondary School students  who will leave for Quebec soon on a  week-long exchange trip. Hanna noted  that the students had earned $1700 qver  the summer townrds the trip nnd n $3200  government grant was being held in  trust.  Blood donors clinic  planned for Oct. 2  ROBERTS CREEK���At the recent Roberts Creek Hospital Auxiliary Meeting members were told a blood donors  clinic Will be held October 2 at St. Mary's  Hospital.

Twenty  four members were present with the  president Mrs. F. Olson" in the ch^air..  Plans for the 1973 Fall Fair and Carnival, to be held on Saturday, Oct. 27,  are well underway. Members are requested to bring all items to' be used at the  carnival, to the next meeting. That is  Wednesday, Oct.��10. Items can also be  left at the home of Mrs. K. Wright in  Garden Bay or at the home of Mrs. F.  Olson, on Bryan Road.  It was with regret that; the members  heard of the resignation of Mrs. Eunice  Porteous, first vice president. Illness prevents her from continuing in-that position. She will be missed. She was an  enthusiastic worker and did an excellent  job as convener of the 1972 fall fair  and carnival. All members hope that her  health will improve steadily.  Mrs7J. Paterson reported on the successful fish "derby, and suggested, that  special thanks be extended to Mr. Lewis  of Irvine's Landing for his assistance. The  derby was worthwhile and members hope  to hold another one next year. ' .  It was reported that the Thrift Shop  and the Mini Thrift-. Shop at the Bill  Browns are thriving. Do donate useful  items. They are always in demand.  Members are invited. to a friendship  tea sponsored by the Port Mellon Auxiliary, from 2 o'clock to 4 o'clock on Sat- ���  urday, Sept, 29. The tea is to be held  in the new United Church Hall at Gibsons. --       .:  The B.C. hospitals' convention is in  October and two delegates will.be needed  from the auxiliary. Do think about this  before the next meeting.  Tea was served by the social conveners, and there was an opportunity  to examine some of the handiwork already completed for i thejall fair.

Mr. Gray's daughter, Catherine Tinson, lives in Richmond with her  family and the Irish pair had a happy  holiday there.  They alL made a trip to Victoria to.  show the relatives the capital of B.C. and  all signed the guest book at the lieutenant governor's residence .and. at the Parliament  Buildings.  It was a wonderful holiday with perfect weather for the Mayne's- annual visit  from friends Miss Bessie and Ella Jamieson.  Labor Day weekend the Jack Maynes  entertained relatives with an evening at-  their home and dinner at the Patio Gardens, Halfmoon Bay. Their party consisted of Mr. and Mrs. Phil Cross and Mr. -  and Mrs. Laurie Evans of Sechelt, Mrs.  Agnes Robinson and Norma Gravel of  Victorja, and Mr. and Mrs. Alan. Lanstaff,  London* England.  Ben and Lisa Simen-Falvy of Continental Travel decided it was time for  them to see. where they had been telling  everyone else to go, -or should it be* suggesting, people to holiday in Europe.  First thing tjiey found, was how the  dollar has shrunk in Western Europe,  especially noted-in Germany where it is  half the value it previously was. This you  can hear on the air before you go, but  being there brings it right to your pocket-  book. If, for instance, a hotel room co3t  before $15 was now $30. It's bound to  make a difference in your holiday mood.  The Simen-Falvys flew first to .London, looked over the hotels in the big  city, found some new ones built to American standards arid some still the old  English style. That is with one-washroom per floor. Regent Street to Oxford  is still the expensive clothing area with  the same outfits'for sale at half the.price  in Kensington.  Two days in London, they then flew  . to Vienna via Austrian Airlines one of  the best serviced en. the trip. They found  -the hotels expensive there, but the food  excellent including the famous Viennese  pastries that make you gain weight just  by looking at them.  They left by hydrofoil travelling on  the Danube River for a 6% hour trip to  Budapest, the river winds its way along  past fields and cottages with a few fairytale castles on its banks. Budapest vies  with Edinburgh for first place as the  nicest and cleanest cities in Europe.  There was time to visit with relatives  in Budapest before taking-the train to  Romania. A word of advice to European  travellers���pay extra and get a first-class  sleeper or pack a sturdy suitcase if you  don't sleep too well standing up.  At Transylvania, birthplace of Drac-  ula, they didn't, take time to see his  grave. Good value is travelling in Romania, Hungary and Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia  has Las Vegas-type casinos in the hotels,  and one of the best cuisines in the world.  Warmest waters in Europe. The Adriatic  sea has a ferry system running along its  shores that should be looked into by  minister of transport Bob Strachan. They  have two bars, a huge dining room plus  a swimming pool.  They took the train across Europe  through Austria, Germany and Belgium  catching the ferry at Ostende to Dover,  then to London for three days, Here Lisa  lightened the pocketbook and loaded the  suitcases for the trip home.  Meanwhile, back home, young Rick  stayed with friends in the West End of  Vancouver, went on a camping trip to  Boulder Dam and enjoyed the summer  holidays like all six-year olds do.  Sunshine Coast Power Squadron will  hold its general meeting for all members  Sept. 21 at the Sechelt Rod and Gun  Club, Wilson Creek. An interesting speaker is on the agenda. Boating enthusiasts  will be interested in next week's paper  for information regarding boating classes  in the night school starting Oct. 2.

Tom and Gladys Parrish, Sechelt, have  returned from a most enjoyable summer  trip on the Prairies bringing Gladys'  mother, Mrs. Warrener, from .Brandon  home with them. The occasion that prompted-their visit in'the first place was the  golden wedding 'anniversary of Tom's  aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Maclntyre, -  July 21 in Whitewood, Saskatchewan.  A crowd of 100 gathered to celebrate tho  occasion. Whitewood hosts were Mr. and  Mrs. Art Greenwood, Tom's sister. They  stopped at Fox' Valley to see another  sister, Mr. and Mrs. Wes Sawyer.  Manitoba relatives visited were all  on Gladys' side, starting with cousins  F. Vince in Winnipeg where" they got  in on another wedding anniversary this  time a 25tft.

She thinks it is looking for deer which  come down from the mountains and  then they went gack up into the hills'  when the cougars came down.  Some conservationists claim wildlife come down from the mountains  when there is an over-abundance of  logging.  Teacher Will Buhner of Roberts  Creek Elementary has an idea for  when the new secondary school is  built. Use student labor, he suggests.  When Reynolds Secondary School in  Victoria needed a band room, students didn't stand around waiting  for someone to build it for them.  They constructed it themselves from  the footings to the finished product.  With $35,000 provided by the  Greater Victoria school board the  industrial education students began  the jiitoject last September and by  June a 36 by 48 foot band room was  .completed.  A similar project previously has  been carried out in two other Victoria high schools and other schools  in the province have also adopted  such projects for industrial education classes.  Such a plan would be worthwhile  for the new school to serve this area.  Will seem to think the entire school  could be built by student labor. Such  a program seems to be a little ambitious but it's a good idea one well  worth considering. There would have  to be several items worked out including arrangements with unions  pnd the like.  If such an idea is too big for entire school, it could be tried on additions for various other schools. Sure  would be good practical experience  for the students.  ���     ���     ���  Driftwood Players are in trouble,  according to Colleen Johnson, secretary-treasurer and leading actress.

To aid in meeting obligations . . .  Consortium, Municipal Authority  agree to market bonds nationwide  PRINCE GEORGE���The Municipal Finance Authority of B.C. has entered  into an agreement with a consortium of  22 Canadian investment dealers to market its bonds in Canada, MPA chairman,  Mayor Ron Andrews (North Vancouver  District) told the semi-annual meeting  of the full authority last week.  Mayor Andrews said the decision to  enter into a fiscal agency agreement  would assist the MFA in meeting its  greatly increased requirements for financing capital projects for local governments  in the province.  The MPA was established in April,  1970, to borrow funds on behalf of regional districts and municipalities. All  28 regional districts in B.C. are members  ot the authority. Director Frank West of  tho Sunshine Coast Regional District la  a trustee of the authority.  Initially, the MFA was restricted to  borrowing funds for water, sewer ond  pollution control abatement, but it has  now been given powers to borrow for  any capital purpose. As a result, the request for funds haa soared.  In the last two years the authority  successfully marketed six issues totalling $57.0 million. It is ih the process  of preparing to market a further $10.2  million to meet current requests from  regional districts  and municipalities.  "Based on Information supplied by  regional districts and municipalities wo  will bo required to finance some $00.0  million in 1074 and $6fl million in 1075,"  Andrews said.  The funds are needed for water, sewers, drainage, roads, sidewalks, park_,  recreation buildings, parking facilities,  civic buildings and other purposes.  Before deciding to establish a fiscal  agency agreement the MFA'b seven-man  board of trustees reviewed its experience  with the tendering system, private placements and fiscal ogenclcs. It also discussed with Boveral provincial governments  tholr practices in selling bonds In tho  Canadian market. i.  As a result of these studies, tho board  of trustees invited a group of Investment  dealers to form a syndicate to market its  bonds in Canada. The group is headed  by a management section mode up of  Wood Gundy Limited, A. E. Ames & Co.  Ltd., Ncsbitt Thomson and Co. Ltd,,  Pemberton Securltlca and Odium Brown  tk T. B. Read. In addition. It will include  tho six ma]or banks and a total of 18  investment dealers.  "No formal contract will be entered  into by the MFA and the authority reserves the right to call for tender or to  make private placements," Andrews said.  "Over-the-counter issues by member  municipalities or regional districts Will  be exempt from the arrangements. The  trustees will have the right at all times  to reject coupon rates and pricing if not  acceptable to them."  Andrews reported that further studies  into proposals to sell local government  bonds  'over-the-counter* throughout the  province have shown there are serious  difficulties. Preliminary talks with various municipal officials indicated that the  chances of such an issue being a success  are doubtful.  As a result, it is recommended that a  specific amount of any MFA issue may  be allocated to a municipality for direct  sale to the public. It would be up to the  municipality to request the allotment of  bonds and to undertake their sale. One  municipality  has already made such a  request.  There are some advantagesyto local  sale, said Andrews. 7  "Local interest in a bond /issue can  be beat developed when the;^oan can  be identified with some specific local  project," he said.        ,      ���      i!  The debentures alloted to'.a municipality for local sale may be. subtitled,  or identified in some similar manner,  with the name of that municipality.  New Westminster MayorjMuni Evers,  deputy chairman of the Greater Vancouver Regional District, was named to the  board of trustees to fill the' vacancy by  the resignation of former Bjurnaby Mayor  BobPrittie. Brittle is now'associate deputy minister of the Department of Municipal Affairs. ���'������//  Other trustees, in addition to Mayor  Andrews and Mr. Kelly/and West are  Mayor Hugh Curtis of jjSaanich, D.

So far the outbreak and  deaths  in  Italy  are relatively  confined    and Dr,  Thores does not Relieve that any outbreak on a large scale is likely in cooler  .(^countries with effective sanitary control  "measures.  He  does  anticipate  that  his  staff may be required to follow up on surveillance  notices  of  traveller  who return from Italy.  "Fortunately, he said, "the period of  development, of this particular illness is  short so that anyone unlucky enough  to acquire the illness, signs would probably be present by the time they had re-  tutned home. Nevertheless the speed of  modern air travel does pose problems in  control of this, and other infectious diseases."  Dr. Thores said the main lesson to be  learned-from a situation such as this is  the importance of basic sanitary measures  such as a safe water supply, good methods  of sewage disposal and good housing.  Where  these  conditions    do  not apply  there is always the risk of epidemics of    LITTLE biscuit trays, cake plate handles,  cholera and'similar infectious diseases. cheese fork servers, stainless steel but-  ;    "We are fortunate in Canada in our    ter dishes���All at Miss Bee's, Sechelt.

At the last count average daily traffic  in July and August, for example, at a  point 4.7 miles north of Sechelt was  1,600 cars. Lea said this is up from  1,200 in 1969 and 1,000 in 1970. Traffic  counts on the Powell River bridge at  Powell River are about 3,100 and this is  actually down slightly from what it was  in 1969.  "These are substantial volumes but  not as high as those on the Island Highway just south of .Courtenay where, the  counts are 000 or the Garibaldi Highway, just,south of Squamish, where they  are 4,500 or even on Saltspring Island on  the Ganges-Vesuvius Road north of Ganges where they-were 2,100, up from 1,700  in 1969." '.���'���'."������  Lea said he  referred the chamber's  request for highway upgrading to his de-  . partment for study and a report on some,  of the problems cited.  ; Robert Strachan, minister of transport and communications, ��under whose  portfolio the ferry system falls, replied  to the executive when questioned as to  why tourist counsellors were taken from  the Sunshine Coast ferries this summer.  Strachan said the department of travel industry normally makes all the ar-  > rangements for tourist counsellors.  However, he said on the Nanaimo and  Victoria routes, "We conducted an experimental arrangement whereby, instead  of the tourist counsellors being provided  by travel industry, we combined positions  on these ferries and we are currently reviewing the results of the experiment.  This, howeveiy had not bearing on the'  Sunshine Coast routes." '*:'..'���  A list of road priorities for upgrading  was prepared by the roads committee.  The list was forwarded to B. A. L'Hiron-  delle, district engineer.  Improvements and upgrading were requested of the following roads: Redrooffs,  Selma Park, Havies, Nestman, Chapman,  Eureka, Derby, NorWest Bay, Field, Snod-  grass, Mason and Nickerson.  Bob Scales recommended that the re-"  gional district improve the Porpoise Bay  garbage  dump road-   "Light  cars   can't  make it," he said.  Colin McKibbon said the executive  should express its appreciation for the  oiling of Naylor Road but the chamber  should push for the paving of it this year.  President Morgan Thompson reported  that the chamber's tourist booth, situated  in the bus depot this year, was well received but due to the ferry strike it was  closed about 10 days early. '  "After- the strike, traffic just didn't  pick up again," said Thompson.

The executive approved unanimously that the November meeting be a  dinner gathering. The October meeting,  the annual grand banquet of the chamber, has been planned.  The 1973 good citizen for Sechelt will  be honored at the banquet.  Committee chairman Dick Proctor reported that a person was selected and  will be honored at the banquet.  Proctor said that many worthwhile candidates were nominated for the position  and the committee, consisting of Morgan .Thompson, Lew Baldwin, Erich  Hensch, Lionel McCuaig had a difficult  time selecting the good citizen.

At close of nominations, the only two  nances submitted were William Robert  Laing, a Port Melllon maintenance supervisor and Ian J. MacKenzie, an electrician  at the mill  The successful candidate will fill the  vacancy created by the resignation of Aid.  Hugh Archer and sit on council until  Dec. 31, the end of Archer's term.  Laing has lived in Gibsons for the  past 20 years and worked at Howe Sound  Pulp for eight years.  - He has been extremely active in com- -  munity organizations including the Kins,  men and Club Scouts.

Cancer fact*  JRRADIATIQN is one method used  in  the treatment of cancer, according to  the Canadian Cancer Society.  The idea of radiotherapy is to kill all  the tumor cells v/ith as little damage as  possible to surrounding normal cells,  while at the same time permitting the.  body to re-establish control over surrounding tissues.  Different types of tumor cells are sensitive to radiation ih different degrees  and radiation of different types produces  differents therapeutic effects.  This is where the skill and knowledge  of the radiotherapist come in. Radiotherapy requires precise techniques to direct  the beam exactly where needed.  X-rays and artificially-produced radioisotopes are used in the treatment of cancer. One of the reactor-produced radioisotopes which is most important in  treatment today is cobalt-60 and the first  treatment units wered esigned and built  in Canada.

Do. up your seat belt. Every control  for your car is placed at the driver's seat.  The way to stay in the driver's seat  to drive your car, is to have your seat  belt done up. You can't do much driving  from the passenger seat. .  .2; Don't try out your new super-doop-  er - guaranteed ' to-get-rid-of-your-head-  ache or whatever pill in the car. Try it  out at home first. The side-effects could  leave you without a head to worry about  if they lead to an accident.  3< Be sensible about your drinking. If  you're lucky you may only get arrested.  If you're not, the phrase dead drunk takes  on a new meaning.  4. Support traffic enforcement, and keep  your car in good working order. A warning, ticket, or repair bill is much more  forgiving than _ concrete abutment ^or a  ditch.  5. Signal your turns well in advance.  Signal your lane changes. Keep the. other  drivers informed and -check your blind  spot.  6. Lock your car whenever, you leave  it. Seventeen per cent of all stolen cars  are involved in an accident.  7. Support driver education programs.  "How to drive and stay alive" is the  theme behind all programs that are designed to improve the skills of the motorist, whether in high schools, in driving  schools, or in advanced driving courses  for those who want the final polish to  their skills. The defensive driving course,  for instance, is an inexpensive way to  find out how to avoid accidents by learning to adjust to weather and traffic conditions among, many other useful tips.  These seven steps are the keys to survival. The more you. have going for you,  the better your chances.  1 __ _  Report from Parliament Hill  nt  /   \  ��� by Harry Olaussen, MP Coo*. Chilcotin  In Portland, Oregon, a man did not  have far to go to report a stolen ladder.  He had been painting in the downtown  police station.    ,7  ONE of the major concerns' in the'  country today has to do with the  ���impact of escalating prices on Canadians with low or fixed incomes.  The assurance of adequate food  for low income Canadians must be  a top priority for the federal gover__  ment as well as the need to increase  food production in this country.  There are still those who advocate  total wage and price freeze as a simple solution in spite of its glaring  failure in other countries, particularly in the U.S. Prices in the U.S., as  a result of its earlier freeze plan,  have skyrocketed with a tremendous  impact on those who can least afford  such increases'in the cost of living.  I have a deep-seated suspicion  of any party that claims complete allegiance to the free-enterprise system  and advocates, at the same time,  widespread controls of the economy  through across the board wage rand  price freeze. As usuM, the wage-  earners are the ones who would be  penalized under such a program and  the consumers would be fed the same  kind of political propaganda as in  the U.S. - :7; \  Rollbacks of Unjustified price increases; selective controls in areas  where controls can do the consumer  good; increased pensions and family  allowances to enable people to cope  with the effects of rising prices���  these are some of the demands that  the New Democratic Party put to  the federal government recently as  the price forsupnort in a minority  gover__iieht situation.  We have too often been made aware of excessive prof its made at the  expense of the Canadian consumer  by gouging them unjustifiably in the  marketplace, by squeezing out of  them everything the traffic will bear.  In the second quarter in 1973, Dominion Stores increased their profits  by 92.56 per cent over the same quarter in 1972, but sales increased by  only 12.97 per cent.  JThe Oshawa Group Ltd., wholesale food distributors, showed an increase in profits of 57.26 per cent and  increased sales of only 2_.43 per cent.  These are some of the many examples of excess profits made by a  number of companies across the  country at the expense of Canadian  consumers. ,  We are asking the government to  take effective action and the prime  minister's statement the other day  on food prices and the cost of living,  although it does not go far enough  with regard to such things a_ a more  effective prices review board and a  need to lower interest rates for housing, reflects the demands made by  the NDP in a minority government,  situation.

XZ^*0 <s7*  \  I  /  7'  /*���  -'���.--'t--7 V--;  1  .   \ ������a-  f!-77L  )  Strait talk  ���A    \  V      ,  ��� by Joaa Proctor  WHEN a husband comes home from  work, his- wife is supposed to  greet him at the door, dry martini in  hand, wearing a gorgeous creation  of filmy froth (and I don't mean  at the mouth). Then she's supposed  to sit down to an intimate candle-lit  dinner and quietly discuss the day's  events -with him to the accompaniment of soft background music. So  say the magazine articles. 7.  It all sounds so simple. But the  last time I decided to try the romantic  bit it went something like the following.  Met husband at the door, wearing  diaphanous gown. That was my at-  *  tire,  not his.  "Are you going,out someplace?"  he asked as he picked up his evening paper and headed for his easy  chair..  I handed him a very dry martini.  "You know I hate martinis," he  said as he turned to the editorial  page:  Phone rings. It is for number one  son. He asks if his friends can come  over to play'pool.  I go to kitchen to check on dinner. Looks perfect so I proceed, to  light candles on dining room table  and pour wine.  Daughter comes in with girlfriend.  Asks if I've forgotten I-said she could  spend the night with us?  I switch stereo on. Horrible sounds  emitted. Seems someone has re:  placed my Chopin with Black Sab7  bath; Hurriedly change records. Call  husband to the table. He says it is  so dark he can't see what he's about  to eat.  I bring out the cocj aU vin. He  says he can't stand olives. While I  try to de-olive his portion, he turns  records off and puts the 8 p.m; news  on. "   - vy  i Phone rings. It is my mother. I,  tell her we are just going to dine.  Says she won't keep me a moment,  but did I know that -������?  ; Fifteen minutes later I return to  dining room. Husband has almost  finished his dinner: I _ try to look  enticing, touch his hand and ask if  he'd care for another .glass of wine.  Our youngest caHs from his crib  that he has to go to the bathroom  really quick!  By the time I return to table, husband has left and is in the den  reading his newspaper.  I place coffee and liqueurs on  silver tray and make sweeping entrance.   :' .'-.������'���"-.-  The door bell buzzes. It is someone wanting to discuss news story  with husband. Asks if I am ill. When  I inquire as to what he means, he  says, "How come you have your  nightgown on? It's only 8:30."   .  Kiwanis plan music  festival for March  GIBSONS���Planning is nearing completion for a local music and speech arts  festival, according to the Sunshine Coast  Kiwanis Club, sponsor of the event.  The festival, slated for the first week  in March next year, will be adjudicated  by "professionals of outstanding reputation in the field of music and the arts."  Categories will be included for all  types of singing and .instrumental music.  Said a Kiwanis spokesman: "All ages,  from young children .to- senior citizens,  will find there is a place for them In the  program. Pupils in dancing classes, too,  can look forward to a part in the festival."  Programs are in the final stages of  preparation, and as soon as they are  printed and available for distribution, an  announcement will be placed in the local  newspapers.  School groups are invited to participate in the singing and instrumental  categories as well as choral speaking,  recorder groups and in the drama section  of the program if it can bo arranged.  Site of the festival has not yet been  finalized.  7 *"   -j  I  1  \r  t  y  I     \  \    -  \  u  Wednetdoy, September 19, 1973   The Penimula Timet 7 Po$e 13  ���'   '  " !\ , y-        ,    y *  DOES PENDER HARBOUR  NEED A DRUG STORE ?

Such holes  are dangerous and the Sunshine Coast  is famous for thiem. This   beauty,  Squaringly yours  _-by Maurice Hemsixeet  ANTIC1PATION! I think this is a good  heading for today's column. Why?  Well let me try to explain. At this point,  I should scratch my head, get a sliver  in my finger, put my arm in a cast and  quit for today, but, if everybody did this,  the wbrld would not turn, so I will carry  on.'.  To start with, due to various reasons,  timing and so on, this column will, be  one week behind the actual square dance  night. in question, so in front of me is  a large calendar, just got to try and  keep dates a coming and going in the  right place, OK.  How, here I sit, saying to myself:  I wonder if our first night Of square dancing will be a success? Will all our country  stars turn out, are there new people who  have moved to our area who are square  dancers or who would like to try square  ���dancing?. I wonder if they have heard  there is a friendly square dance club on  the Sunshine Coast. Worst of all, 1 wonder if our lead caller, Harry Robertson,  from Gibsons, will remember to come.  I phoned him, his comment, how did I  know he had not practiced calling this  summer and his machine was somewhere  in the basement. I said, "Harry, when  you're good, who needs practice?"  On the other hand, maybe I should  worry. Once last year, during his turn  to call,' he brought his square dance  machine and forgot the records. Being a  president is fantastic at times.  I have an idea. Why not wait and  find out when the time comes. Right  now I am little pushed for time so if  you want to square dance, join the  Country Stars at the Sunshine Golf Club  every Friday 8:30 p.m. Next date is Friday, Sept. 21 and my turn to call. Guess  I had better practice, I need it.  For beginner lessons, call Jack Whitaker, 885-2438, and join his Happy Hoppers at the Wilson Creek Hall.  For other information call Harry Robertson, 888-9540, Gibsons, or myself at  880-2535, Roberts Creek, and come on  out, join us, have fun, tell your friends,  bring them, relax, forget your worries.  I will guarantee you won't need sleeping  pills or brand X, for a good night's sleep.  Cheerio for now, see you nt the  square dance.  about six laches deep, is on Hall  Road in Roberts Creek, just below  the fire station. There is no use hugging the centre line to avoid these  dandies because many of them, such  as this one, are right on the yellow  line. Watch for it. One day the highways department may fill it in and  then another Sunshine Coast landmark wili disappear.  To train boys  Christian Service  organized by area Baptists  BETHEL Baptist Church, Sechelt, and  Calvary Baptist Church, Gibsons, are  presently preparing for the introduction  and implementation of Christian Service  Brigade. ^  . Purpose of Christian Service Brigade  is the local church reaching out through  its men to win and train boys for Christ,  said Pastor W. N. Erickson. While the  focal point of the program is boys, Christian Service ^Brigade also seeks to have  an impact on the men ol the church, the  boys' homes and the surrounding community. The basic principles of the program are Christ-centered, Bible .based,  church-oriented, led by men and geared/  to boys. The program has' purposeful  action, achievement progress, group dynamics, leadership braining and service  concept, he said.  Locally, Christian Service Brigade is  organized as the battalion for boys 12-  18, and the stockade for boys 8-11. Responsibility for organizing, directing and  maintaining the boys* work rests with  a committee, but the actual leadership of  boys is the task of carefully chosen  Christian men.  The weekly boys' meetings are held  in the church, or other suitable building,  and include physical action, contests, achievement projects and a Gospel-centered  story or talk by one of the leaders. Per  gonal study and memorization of the Bible together with such other activities  as camping, hiking, swimming and competitive sports round out the program.  With boys coming individually to leaders  to pass achievement tests, there is much  opportunity for personal counselling.  Christian Service Brigade is open to  all boys of the church and community.  Further notice regarding opening dates  for the clubs, will be forthcoming. Should  parents need more details they may contact Erickson, pastor of the Baptist  churches, at 886-7449 or 886-2611.

Hunters warned against  shooting out insulators  Rowing enthusiast Jens Riddervold Jensen, pulls away from the dock and heads for the sea. Jensen visited the Sunshine Coast after rowing here  from West Vancouver. He is heading for Pender Harbour and Jervis Inlet.  Loves bikes and rowboats . . . . "' .  Engine-hating oarsman lakes  his crusade to the people  WITH the cost of meat at sky-high levels,  all predictions point to a record number of hunters in search of game during  the current hunting season, now open  in��most parts of British Columbia.  The great majority of hunters are  responsible citizens���but each year a few  vandals make an appearance^iri' the 'bush.y  These are the persons whose lawless  behavior includes shooting domestic livestock, and destruction of logging equip-  ment and powerlines.  "Damage to powerlines and insulators  each year-causes    serious hazard    and  hardship for a large number of innocent  people,"  said    Hugh  Williamson,    B.C.  ���: Hydro's chief security officer. ..'..���  In past years bullet damage to Klines  has left entire communities without heat,  ; light or power. Hospitals, schools, traffic  control signals, fire alarms and other essential public services all have been affected.- ���'-��� 7 -777  In some cases many hours may elapse .  b&fore line crews are able to locate and  repair the damage. Meanwhile innocent  people^ often the aged and sick, suffer  needlessly. -  "povirerline workers face an additional  hazard," Williamson pointed out. "An  insulator that has been cracked by gunfire may break while linemen are are  working on a pole or tower, endangering  their lives.  "The  great majority  of hunters are  good responsible citizens. -They're as  much concerned with this'kind of vandalism as anyone else, and want to put ah  end to it. They realize it gives all hunters a bad.name."  ^ Last hunting season a number'of individuals were charged with causing  damage to powerlines, and convicted...In....  all cases, they were sentenced to a fine,  ordered to pay the cost of repairs, end  prohibited from owning or carrying lire-  armsMor considerable periods of time.  Organized sportsmen are taking positive steps aimed at solving the problem  of vandalism. Clubs affiliated with the  B.C. Wildlife Federation support an educational program that stresses safety in the  field,-ahd respect for game laws and private property.  The hunter training program sponsored by the provincial Fish and Wildlife  Branch' emphasizes the same objectives.  B.C. Wildlife Federation, B.C. Hydro,  forestry and livestock associations offer  Rewards for information leading to the  identification and conviction of persoris  guilty of specific acts" of vandalism.  Hunters, having evidence of game law  violations or property damage should report this information at once on the neiar-  est conservation officer or ROMP detachment.  Both with arms flung wide, a young  boy and an old sea running to embrace.  _^  by Dick Proctor  SBCRET COVE���Jens, Riddervold Jensen  hates motors whether they are on cars  or on boats.    :  That's why, at 68, he'hikes and rows  boats. He'd ride bikes too, except that  he ruined his hip in a bicycle crash four  y^ars ago. Doctors then told him that he  would .never ride fr bike again and that  he wouldn't- ke_ doin�� anymore hiking.  That didn't slow Jens down. Although he  doesn't ride bikes, last year he climbed  Norway's highest,'mountain 8,000 foot  Mount "Gattoespiggen, the tallest in  northern Europe. He was celebrated in an  Oslo newspaper arid referred to as Mr.  Row of Norway for obvious other reasons.  But, returning to the original point,  Jens hates motors. So much so _ that he  is on. a .pergonal crusade promoting row-  ing^and^"bicycling.  ^eris^rowed a 20-ifoot "cHnker-bujJt  boat from Fisherman's Cove in West Vancouver to Secret Cove and he has continued on to Pender Harbour and perhaps Jervis Inlet. He made his trip in  steps. From Fisherman's Cove, he rowed ���  to Keats Island. It took him about six  hours, "but I was rowing against wind  and. tide." He spent the night on Keats  Island at the Baptist camp.  "They were awfully hospitable there,"  Jens said in his heavy Norwegian accent.  "It's a truly lovely place."  The next day he rowed to Gibsons  where he met a man he knew only as  Daddy. Daddy and Jens, both being rowing enthusiasts, took a turn at speed in  the Norwegian's boat.. Jens figured they  rowed in tandem and hit about 5% to 6  knots. Not bad for one able man and  another with an artificial hip.  From Gibsons, Jens-jrowed alone past  Gower Point, Roberts Creek, White Islets and other landmarks. He named landfalls and rocks as if he had all the nautical charts necessary to navigate these  waters but he actually followed directions  on a map of the Sunshine Coast.  Jens pulled in to Davis Bay at about  8 p.m., Monday after a day-long haul.  He stayed the night athe Bella Beach  Motel and on Tuesday made for Welcome  Beach where he spent the night with  Walter Fallerfer. On Wednesday he headed for Secret Cove but first toured  Smugglers Cove.  "Rowing is lovely," said Jens. "When  you're rowing, you're free of the sen and  free of tho land.  "With a good sturdy rowboat lt does  not matter if you hit a couple of rocks."  Jena found difficulty in obtaining Just  the right rowbont���one that's sturdy and  light. He bought one from D. H. Carter  on the Loughccd Highway, Vancouver.  IVh made of red cedar but, he said, it  has too much tail drag. He eventually  bought an older boat from Grant Allan  of Vancouver nnd that seems to suit his  purposes nicely. It's 20 feet long and has  a fourfoot beam.  Why doesn't Jens take up canoeing or  kayaking?  "A ennoe  la too cnolly damaged and  a kayak in good and..fast but not roomy  enough," said Jens. "Canoes won't take  *   heavy seas like a rowboat will."  A good rowboat, such aa Jena uaea, will  accommodate four people and carry quite  a bit of gear, he added.  While on his tour he is promoting  rowing and likes to call in at marinas to.  prove his point that rowing is healthful  and relaxing.  I met Jens at Jack and Jean Mercer's  Buccaneer Marina at Secret Cove where  he had stayed a few nights at the Canadian Youth Hostel which is situated on  the property.  I puffed along behind Jens as we  walked from Mercer's house to the hostel.  The hostel is at the top of a rather steep .  hill and Jens talked all the way. Every  few minutes he would stoop "down and  pick up a gum wrapper or other piece'  of litter and I soon found myself doing  the same.  Jens went on rapturously about the   ���  benefits of rowing _nd said' that he may  , take another trip to Norway in the spring  to promote rowing.  A Norwegian friend of his has developed a 17-foot model of a Viking long-  ship. It's light and portable, "and it can  be rowed by one man at seven knots or  two men can row it at touring speed five  to six knots or at nine knots, full out.  One man could row at touring speed of  4% knots. It's beautiful."  Last year Jens toured Europe looking  for good rowboats but he said he couldn't  find a light, portable one-man rowboat  in Oslo or Kiel, Germany, which has  held three Olympic regattas. He went to  the French Riviera���same thing, no row-  boats. San Sebastian, Spain was his next  destination and there were no handy  rowboats there. There were none in  London, or in other European seaports.  "Wood is best for a rowboat. Aluminium makes too much noise���it spoils  all the fun of being out on the water."  "Where did you find the best boats?"  I asked Jens.  "I dug up the best doughty, good-as-  gold boat builders right here in British  Columbia," Jens said proudly. And he  added that he presently owns four of the  ��� best rowboats in the western world. With  his rowboats, a sail can be incorporated  nnd it will give even more freedom.  Jens, a bachelor,, worked in a plywood mill in Port Alberni for 20 years.  Four years ago he was riding a bicycle  and was going down hill at an extremely  high rate of speed when he crashed.  Jens severely Injured his left hip In  the crash nnd required the insertion of  an artificial Joint.  When he asked his surgeon if he  would be able to hike again, Jens said  the doctor held out hia hands and tipped  them back and forth indicating that Jens'  balance waa probably off and that he  doubted that ho would ever hike again.  "I took up hiking again. Tho steeper  the hill, tho better," sold Jens, olapplng  his artificial hip nnd laughing.  He attribute!, rowing to helping return  his Btrcngth and stability to hia hip. Ho  said that once, when ho was out rowing,  "there were huge waves, mountainous  waves which massaged my hip. Such an  experience allowed mo to start climbing  and ^hiking again."  It was then* that he climbed the tallest  Norwegian mountain, the oldest member  Of the group of 32 climbers* and the only  one to have ever climbed the peak with  such a handicap. Later, he was interviewed by the Norwegian newspaper.  Iii spite of his serious, accident, Jens  still loves bicycles and, in fact, promotes  the use of them just as avidly as rowing.  A friend of his, Arnold Seines, "Norway's  foremost bicycle inventor" is working  on a multi-bike concept.  A multi-Jbike has three or more wheels  and can be ridden and pedalled by several people. It can have a convertible top  in case of rain.  When Jens explained the concept to  Stein Johnsen, coach of Norway's double  gold-medal winning cycle team at the  Munich "Olympics in 1972,". he got a  glow on about multi-bikes so I introduced  him to Arnold Seines."  Multi-bikes were tried in France about  10 years ago, Jens explained, but the  Frenchmen considered it beneath their  dignity and it never caught on. "That's  not the case today," he said, warming up  to his subject.  His pet peeves are motors whether  they are used on land or sea.  '^Cars are too mechanical I hate cars.  They're a nuisance. They're dirty. They  curtail outdoor activities. They're dangerous."  When I reminded him that the was  severely injured riding a bicycle, he just  smiled at me with patience and then  shrugged his shoulders as if to say you  can be hurt doing almost anything.  While staying at the hostel, he composed a letter to a financier in Toronto  explaining the possibilities of rowing and  suggested that a great deal of money  could probably be made from building  and promoting rowboats. Jens referred  once again to the miniature Viking ships.  His home town is Tro Toensberg, the  old capital of Norway and where the  original Viking ships were found so he  comes by his love of the sea honestly.  Valhalla, for this latter-day Viking, has  to be at sea with an oar in each hand and  the salt spray washing over him.  When the interview was over, I chased  along behind Jens as he headed down  to the dock and his beloved rowboat. I  noticed that he had only the slightest  trace pf a limp and he carried a cane  just to steady himself a bit;  When he got to the Buccaneer dock,  nothing would do but Jens take me for  a ride.  "There, isn't that smooth and quite  fast," he told me. enthusiastically as he  headed reluctantly back to the dock. "I  won't try to abduct you this time."  I stood on the dock and waved as  Jens rowed away,  alone and  at peace.  & Stationery  9   THE CANADIANS AT WAR 1939-45  m  TALES THE TOTEMS TELL by Sechelt writer  Hugh Weather by  $  BETTER HOMES & GARDENS SEWING BOOK  ��   WINDFLOWER by Gabrille Roy  y  POCKET BOOKS  MAHARASHI MAHESH YOGI ON THE BHAGAVAD-GITA .��� THE  CLEAR CREEK BIKE BOOK ��� GULLIVER'S TRAVELS ��� PEOPLE OF  THE DEER ��� THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD.

Christinas tray favors in the hospital  since 1965 have; been under her charge.  She served on phoning committees, assisted on the scholarship fund, was secretary for two years, sunshine convenor  for three and acting secretary many  times.  Ada took charge of the Sechelt news  column when it was being done by the  auxiliary.  At present, Mrs.  Dawe works  as  a  volunteer in, t^e gift shop, is in charge^ of  .the hospital library cart and has been,  and- still is, a valuable,,worker for the  smorgasbord, How many birds have come  out of her oven for the annual feast is  ��� not known, but they are .numerous.  -   The greatest   .gift Mrs. Ada    Dawe  brings to every meeting is her fabulous  memory,. combined with her interest in  people and our hospital.  This gift has  served the Sechelt Auxiliary well, keep-  ' ing everyone on their toes.  The BCHA.Auxiliaries Division life  member pin arrived with a letter of  congratulations "from the BCHA. The Sechelt members presented her with a bud  vase with pink rosebuds and a beautiful cake which read "To Honor Ada".  Mrs. E. Bragg, St. Mary's hospital administrator, came to honor Ada with  congratulations from the board and the  hospital.  The presentation of a life membership to Mrs. Dawe was suggested by -past  president Mrs. Faye Lewis to president  Ina Grafe, who wholeheartedly approved, as did the members .of the auxiliary.  This does not. entitle Mrs. Dawe to  retire. Her presence is still needed at  meetings and other functions.   .  25th anniversary . . .
