 under pressure  The decision by Sechelt School District  trustees not to administer a province-wide  grade four mathematics exam here is  meeting resistance from Victoria.  Minister of Education Pat McGeer,  questioned by a reporter last week about  the board's decision, .replied, '-Don't  worry,; their grade fours will take the  test." McGeer did not elaborate.     :  Board President Celia Fisher said she  received a phone call after the board's  action from Jerry Miissio, acting director  of the provincial Learning Assessment  Program. She said Mussio told her that the  board acted on the basis of erroneous  information about the test. He also asked  why the board had chosen to block the  testing without first making inquiries to  his office, she said.  John Denley, district superintendent of  education, also reportedly received a  phone call from John Meredith,  superintendent of educational services for  the Ministry of Education.  Denley was out of town attending an  educational conference last week and  could not be reached for comment.  Sechelt board Secretary-Treasurer Roy  Mills, however, confirmed that Meredith  had called Denley.  Meredith and Mussio both reportedly  said that most students could complete the  test in 30 minutes, rather than the one and  a half hour period indicated in an earlier  memo from Mussio. Both also reportedly  said, that the district would be allowed to  exempt from the testing special education  students of others whom the district felt  would have difficulty taking the exam.  Meredith also told Denley that the  board lacks the power under the Public  Schools Act to block administration of the  test, Mills said.  Sechelt trustees on February 24 approved a motion by trustee Claus  Speikermann banning the test. The  board's objections centered on the  reported one and a half hour length of the  test period and on the stipulation, contained in a memo from Mussio to Denley,  that all students, including where possible  special education students.} should be  included in the testing.  Fisher said she feels Mussio raised a  valid point in questioning why the trustees  had not sought further information before  voting to block the test. However, she said,  the same criticism might be made of the  ministry's actions.  She said all information regarding the  test had been routed through Denley's  office and that the board had received no  direct communication concerning the  plan.  She also questioned the validity of  province-wide testing which would allow  some districts tp exclude certain students  while other districts included them.'  "If this is a sample of how the test is to  be run, I would seriously question the  validity of it," she said.  "If it's to be an accurate assessment,  every district should know what the  ground rules are and conduct the test  under the same conditions. If this type of ]  testing is not carefully controlled, the|  restults will not be very valid, and that's a|  waste of time and energy," Fisher said.|  She said she was "pleased" to hear that;  the one and a half hour figure was an  outside duration,time for the test and that:  most students could complete the test in 30  minutes. j  Fisher said the matter will be discussed  again at the board's Thursday (March 10)|  meeting at Davis Bay Elementary. She|  said she couldn't speak for the rest of thej  board, but added, "I'd be really upset if wel  couldn't find a compromise. I think the?  members of the board want to do what's?  best for the children." \.  ��� Trustee Speikermann said Saturday,  however, that he is not in a compromising1  mood. "I'm still going to argue against it,'  he said. ;  Speikermann, who is principal of  Boundary Community School in North;  Vancouver, said he has a memo from  Mussio which clearly indicates that the;  testing involves a 30 minute preliminary  instructional period, followed by an hour's  testing. "That's a one and a half hour  sitting," he said.  He also questioned the. validity of,  testing which allows some districts to  exempt some students and requires other,  districts to include those students.

Ferries  catering manager last week.  Captain Peter De Cunha, in Gibsons  speaking to members of the local ferry  committee, was severely criticized for the  poor selection pf food offered on the Howe  Sound run.  In his defense, De Cunha said that up to  800 passengers per crossing must be fed  and that he would rather server "70 per  cent of the passengers to the best of our  ability than provide 20 per cent with  guounnet service."  "But haven't you gone to the other  extreme, charging 95 cents for a sliver of  cheesecake and giving us Cardboard trays,  styrofojim cups and plastic knives and  forks?" asked "Gibsons, clerk Jack  Copland.

"I've sat by the cash register And  counted the number of people," he told the  committee, "and I've seen 600 people go  through during the sailing time. They were  all people who bought something and had  time to finish it, and some came back for a  second coffee."  Three factors, De Cunha explained,  determined what food can be served on  what ferries. These factors included the  number of paissengers, the crossing time  and the manpower available in the  cafeteria.  The B.O. Ferries Corporation is investigating the possibility of pre-packaged  meals, the same type as served aboard  -��� ttjsif  airline flights, De Cunha said. "It would be  a TV dinner concept," he agreed, adding  that Vancouver based flight kitchens haye  been asked "to come up with something  between sandwiches and hot meals."  Bill Edney, local grocery store owner  and chairman of the Lower Gibsons  Merchant's Association, complained to Dir;  Cunha of the early closing of the cafeteria v  during sailings. "You wonder about it, you  just get in and you are told to leave," he  said.  The primary reason for this policy,  replied De Cunha," is to balance the cash  and satisfy the Treasury Department.  "Then perhaps that policy should be  battled," said Edney. "They may not  realize the effect of their regulations ori  basic service."  "That," conceeded De Cunha, "is a  reasonable comment."  - , Edney then asked abottt^he pj^a-.tfiuy  . of turning-the food service over to private  enterprise.

"I can remember," said Dph Pearsall  of the Concerned Citizens, "10 or 15 years  ago when people looked forward to the  food they would get on the ferry. B.C.  Ferries can provide a good service if they  want to." Pearsell questioned the advisability of "changing to free enterprise  as it would withdrawing jobs from the  union and probably result in a long  strike."

Volume 14 ���No. 15  Wednesday, March 9, 1977  flail says land swap dead (maybe)  The saga of Cameo Lands developer  Hank Hall took further dramatic twists  last week. The regional board refused to  allow him a 40-acre industrial park on  Field Road, and Hall claimed that the vote  against the rezoning was illegal.  Hall had been to the board seeking a  rezoning bylaw for the 40-acre parcel,  which he has an option to buy. But last  Thursday the board agreed to support  rezoning of only eight of the 40 acres,   -v  Hall angrily announced that he was'  through with the whole affair'and would  not exercise his purchase optioft, which  ' expires March 10.  He later said that it is unlikely he will  ever build his industrial site on the  property, even if a related land swap is  eventually approved by the Department of  the Environment, because the owner will  probably, want a much higher price after  HaU's option expires.  Several years ago, Hall built a  residential subdivision juut south of the  proposed industrial area. Later, when he  announced plans to put an industrial plant  next to the subdivision, local residents  succeeded in blocking the project.  Next, Hall and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District agreed on a land swap  which would have the effect of granting  Hall his industrial site, creating a  greenbelt buffer between the commercial  park and the residential subdivision, and  providing the Regional District with a 20-*  acre parcel for parkland and watershed  protection along Chapman Creek.  Tp deal has been pushed along in an  attempt to gain government approval  ibefore the expiry of Hall's option. It hit a  /last minute snag, however, when the  LandS'Branch recently opposed the trade,  v ,saymg"that,;",'tB6" 20 iacfes of crown land  which; Hall was to receive were more  valuable than the 20 acres he was offering  in exchange.  Hall then attempted to salvage plans  for his industrial site by asking the  Regional Board to rezone the 40 acres he  has an option;on.  But the board decided last Thdursday  that most of the land is unsuitable for  industrial use. Several board members  suggested that industrial development  over the whole 40 acres could cause  serious pollution of Chapman Creek.  Hall argued before the board that he  was not going to spend "$150,000 for eight  acres of land when for the same money I  could get the use of the whole 40 acres." He  then told them that while industrial land is  available locally, much of it is located in  .Sechelt "where it costs $250,000 an acre."  In Richmond, which he called "the most  Utopian place imaginable," industrial land  cost only $167,000 an acre, he said. "I say  to the board," Hall continued, "don't be  afraid to go to Wilson Creek or Davis Bay,  let (industrialists) buy for $50,000 on Field  Road."  Hall added that he didn't want to be left  holding, the bag" if the landswap fatted,  but regional planning director Paul Moril^,  J.jjDld theRectors that odds were 80 to90;  per cent in favor of the swap despite the  adverse assessment.  Moritz said two members of the B.C.  Development Corporation had looked at  the two sites and felt it would be  "disastrous" to allow industry on the  property currently under the option to Hall  as a steep canyon runs through the area.  The officals felt, Mortiz said, that the  crown land would be much more suitable  for HaU's plans.  Moritz also presented a planning report  to the directors in which it was recommended that areas adjacent to the creek  not be rezoned as any clearing of the land  could increase run-off and .cause sediment  problems further down stream.  Moritz then suggested that Hall look for  a new industrial site away from the Field  Learning the three Rs  is different in Egmont  IT'S TOUGH to be five years old and have to decide what your favorite drink is. Egmont pupil Michael  Fearn, centre, had a long think about his answer before coming to the conclusion that, when it came right  down to It, he'd rather have milk.  By KEfltRA LOCKHART  It is not your typical little red school  house.  From the outside Egmont school  resembles nothing more than a surplus  army quonset hut. Ix>ng and lean it squats  on the hillside above the village and  harbour protected by rock outcropplngs  and a large black dog planted beside the  front door.  Inside there is sunlight and batik  hangings, orange shag carpets and drop  ceilings. Even counting Uie one classroom,  activity room and dark-room disguised as  an office it is very small. But the 11 pupils  attending Kindergarten to Grade Six like  it. It's their school.  On Friday, Ron Fearn who has been In  Egmont "off and on for five years" la  showing his pupils how to make newspaper  kits. He Is Egmont's only teacher. Helping  him is the mother of of one of Uie students.  "The beauty of thla" school/' Fearn  believes, "is that It Is a community school  in every sense of the word. At times during  Uio day you will see more adults than  children In hero."  If a local resident has a particular  talent, chances aro Feurn will ask him to  tench it to his class. He bus liecn known to  stop the locnl RCMP tn tbo midst of their  dally patrol and get them to come in and  talk to the students.  There was a Ume, comments Fearn,  when hla school was In serious danger of  closing down, when people believed the  only good school was Uie one with a large  enrollment and expensive facilities. But he  thinks this attitude turn now changed and  Uiat Ui.fi school board la committed to  keeping the Egmont school.  Things have Improved dramatically ln  Uie last two years. There is now n colour  TV, a stereo system and a tapedeck, all  used as teacher's aides. Recently, Fearn  wus given the funds to hire a part-time  assLstant. "Occasionally, I can now go for  a lunch-time walk," he says.  A few village children attent Madeira  Park elementary because their parents  want them to have access to extras, like a  band room, that the tiny Egmont school  cannot provide. "But there's not many like  thnt," says the teacher.  Egmont hnd what must have been one  of the few 100 per cent parent turnouts for  Its discussion on the proposed core  curriculum. "All eight of them came,"  laughs Fearn. "Before they buy Uie core  curriculum," he claims , "the parents  want to find out more nbout lt."  The school, perhaps more than the local  store, Is Uie real heart of Egmont. "This is  more than a school to this community,"  explains Fearn. "We have videotape  fllma, lectures, classes in Uie evenings for  adults. I try to get people to come in here  nnd find out wiint we hnve to offer."  The almost one room school bus advantages to it, Fearn maintains, that the  larger centres can't offer. .Some aspects  other teachers could view as negative  points be tries to use as assets.  "I get the older kids to teach the  younger ones, to help them with their  lessons. Here Uie children are forced to  play with each other and learn respect for  other people. It's good for everyone,"  "There's a variety of lifestyles In  Egmont," adds Fearn. ".Some of the  longtime residents hnve more definite  views on education, on how I should tench  their children. Others may think I'm being  loo strict. You hnve to find a balance."  Tills year enrollment In the school Is the  ��� See Page A-5  Road area. This, he said, "would be difficult, but not impossible."  HaU repUed that he recenUy had a soU  engineer test the Chapman Creek area and  that he had found no problem with the  land. "It's aU a matter of opinion," HaU  stated.  -  Area 'B' director Peter Hoemberg told  HaU,''we wUl give you eight acres to get  started with. If the landswap goes through  titere is no problem, if not then we wfll  ier the zoning."  K  Jack Paterson, director of Area 'A',  however, suggested that the board rezone  the entire 40 acres because federal environment agencies would ensure that the  creek was protected. Paterson then made  his suggestion a motion, which was  seconded by Sechelt representative  Harold Nelson.  Chairman Harry Almond then called  the vote and Paterson, Nelson and Jim  Metzlet of Gibson's voted in favour.  Next, before calling for the negative  votes, Almond stopped the proceedings  and polled the directors on their attitudes  toward the rezoning.  He then took the negaUve votes and the  motion was defeated.  Hoemberg in turn moved tliat "eight  acres in the northeast corner of the  southeast section" be recommended by  the board for rezoning." Hoemberg noted  that eight acres was an arbitrary number  and could be changed either before or  after a public hcuring on the matter.  Hoemberg's motion passed easily.  "That's it, that's the end of industry  here," claimed Hall after the decision was  made.  Visibly angry at the result, the  developer first said, "there is no way" he  woyld built his proposed ferro cement  panel plant on the Sunshine Const. loiter,  when asked to reaffirm this statement,  HaU .said "for the Immediate ruture" he  would not construct his fuctory here. Hall  also revealed he Is involved in land  negotiations on the const but replied "no  comment" when asked if the property  would be used as an alternative to his  Field Road development.  On Saturday Hall told The Times that  the decision not to rezone his 40 ncres was  illcgul us Uie cluiirmun hud violuted  Roberts Rules of Order by allowing  discussion in the middle of Uie voting.  He also claimed that Almond lind voted  for the motion and Uiut un abstention by  Area 'E' <llreetor Ed Johason swung the  decision in his favour.  Hoemberg later said that Hall's  argument wns "ridiculous." lie maintained Almond bad not voted und Hall lind  not received n clear majority. He agreed  "that perhaps the discussion should not  linvc taken place" but added that a vote  cnn only be challenged Immediately afterward nnd then only by a member of the  lxH.nl.  m  "The regional district," said Hoemberg, "has gone out of Its way to accommodate Hall, but he pushed a little too  hard for a little too long."  Hall also told The Times thnt he has  bought some property In Delta where he  would build bis cement panels. He rcfiii-cd,  however, to say that he had completely  given up his plans for an industrial site on  the Peninsula.

He's mad because he thinks the  Regional Board was inept and slothful  in the way it pursued approval of his  proposed land swap. And he may  have a case there.  Hindsight affords a marvelously  clear view and permits countless  opportunities for saying, "I told you  so."  But bureaucracies, even little  ones, are notoriously inept and slothful. This shouldn't surprise a man  who has as many irons in the fire as  Hall claims.  The burdensomeness of the  bureaucratic beast is a continuing  frustration to all who come in contact  with it. But that very inefficiency,  which can send an ambitious  businessman screaming into the  streets, also works as an unintended  check on governmental authority.  Who knows what sort of society we  swap  The point is, Hank Hall does not  qualify as an oppressed minority just  because things aren't going his way  right now. And if recent events?  convince Hall that he should not put  an industrial development on his  Field Road property, the onus should  not rest entirely with the Regional  Board.  The board has acted in good faith.  They failed to meet Hall's deadline  for the trade, but that's a hazard of  the game.  The board also declined to approve  in full an alternate rezoning plan  submitted by Hall, but in so doing  they were simply adhering to their  original intentions to protect the  Chapman Creek watershed and to  preserve potential parkland. Hall can  disagree with that, but he has no  cause for yelling betrayal.

Things are changing fast enough of  their own momentum without a  super-state to grease the tracks,  thank you.  Of course, one may adopt the  counter view that the accelerating  pace of change necessitates an efficient state mechanism. But there's  not much historical precedent for the  benign application of that theory.  As long as we're suffering along  under a system rooted in competing  self-interests, perhaps a little inefficiency is the best protection we have  from ourselves.

Any ob-  ,server of the Regional Board in recent  months will confirm that Harry  Almond is a lax parliamentarian.  Board members themselves have  complained of the way Almond allows  debate to drag on beyond the point bf  usefulness.  But there's no question of how the  board's final vote went, and decrying  deviance from Robert's Rules of  Order is only muddying the waters in  this issue.  Indeed, Hall has done his share of  muddying by presenting a confusing  and inconsistent picture of his plans  and alternatives.  The Regional Board is moving ���  perhaps slowly and clumsily ���  toward estabUshing the Field Road  area as an industrial zone. If Hank  Hall does not find the area financially  attractive now, doubtless other  developers will.  Let me see if I've got this straight.

Favoritism can pollute decision making  Between the lines  THE REFUSE OF YOUR TEEMING  SHORE  It was Wednesday, March 3, the night  of the Great Gibsons Garbage Scare.  The Gibsons Council last week passed a  motion by Alderman Jim Metzler to the  effect that the viUage clerk should look  into the possibUity of Gibsons' joining the  Regional District's recently approved  garbage collection contract.  Straightforward enough. Gibsons  residents now have to contract individually for garbage collection, Metzler  was suggesting that by joining the  Regional District's function, the village  might be able to obtain for its citizens a  lower rate for the service.  But nothing is ever as simple as it  seems, and Metzler's motion contained a  hidden bombshell: the information that  the SCRD was consolidating its various  dumps and planned to close the Stuart  Road dump above Gibsons.  And what will become of Gibsons'  garbage?  It will go into a' sanitary landfill about  three miles from Sechelt, Metzler said.  Ah-ha!  "And will Sechelt get that land? " asked  Alderman Ted Hume.  "I don't think so," Metzler replied.  "It's pretty far from the village."  "So is the Arenu," said Hume. "They  went and annexed that."  Has Alderman Metzler unthinkingly  fallen Into a .scheme to rip off Gibsons'  By Dennis Fitzgerald  garbage? WiU Sechelt annex the garbage  and build a great city on the refuse?  Stay tuned for further developments in  this vital issue.  AN EYE POR AN EYE  You may have noticed a front page  story in the Province a couple of weeks ago  regarding the compUcity of Eaton's  department stores in the spreading  scourge of junk mail.  A spokesman for the chain was quoted  as saying that the store routinely sold its  mailing list to various parties, who in turn  fill your mail box with counUess offers  which you may ��� but probably don't ���  have an interest in or need for.  The Province article ended with the  address of Eaton's head office and the  inference, that annoyed Junk mail  recipients might want to write the firm.  Joan Kampman of Gibsons has a better  idea. She Says that from now on she's  forwarding all her junk mail toEatons. She  says if the store doesn't see anything  wrong with our receiving all this stuff,  they shouldn't mind getting it themselves.  Reminds me of an episode several  years ago when the Neimann Marcus  department stores ln Dallas had Incurred  Uie wrath of a number of their customers.  I don't recall what the grievance was,  but I do remember that it got straightened  out shortly after a number of people  mailed their charge cards back to the  store.  By ADRIAN STOTT  It was recently reported in another  local newspaper that the mayor of  Gibsons would not approve a certain  development unless he knew the  names of the shareholders of the  development company. This would  have been an unfortunate stand,'but  the mayor apparently was  misquoted; he was actually asking  for proof of financial capability.  Government should pay as little attention as possible to the identity or  personality of those it deals with,  particularly in land development  matters.  A council or regional board is a  law-making body, and a fundamental  principle of law is that it should be  written impartially and apply equally  to all. In general, a council is not  empowered to act as a court, where  the application of the law and the  merits of specific cases may be  judged. If, in making a law, the  council concerns itself unduly with  the desires of a specific person, it is  guilty of discrimination and is  making the public interest less important than the private interest of  that person. A rezoning bylaw to  allow a development is a law, and  decisions concerning it should be  based mainly on whether it is good for  the whole community and meets  required standards. It should not pass  simply because a particular land  owner requests it.  Keeping to th|s principle can be  difficult, particularly in rural areas  where examples abound of decisions  where the applicant's personal attributes were ,a council's prime  consideration. It can work both ways.  A developer might be too rich, too  slick, or have an abrasive manner,  and so his valid proposal might be  rejected because of an alderman's  prejudices against that type of person. However, the opposite case,  favouritism, is probably a more  serious problem.  To be elected in a small community, one must usually be individually known to many of its  voters. This means that the regional  director or alderman is often the  person^ friend of many of those who  appear before the elected body he sits  on. It's only human to want to help  one's friends, or those whose  initiative one admires. However, too  many local government decisions  show,. through spot-zoning or other  symptoms, that this normally  ..praiseworthy feeling has been unfortunately allowed to overwhelm the  need for an impartial consideration of  the public good in such matters.  Our three local governments have  had difficulty in learning this lesson,  and in realizing that the correct way  to govern is to adopt general policies  of public benefit, which can be applied evenly to specific problems with  much less temptation to become  involved in personalities. There have  been too many special case decisions.  With this in mind, the case of Cliff  Salahub should be noted. Mr. Salahub  wishes to open a marine supplies shop  near Sechelt. Everyone agrees that  he is an upstanding member of our  community, and admires him and his  son. Most people feel that Mr.  Salahub's business would be good for  the community, so there has been  pressure put on the board to rezone  his residential lot at Davis Bay, as he  requested to allow this commercial  use.  The board thought Mr. Salahub's  shop was a great idea, but after much  consideration it realized that the  location was a problem. If it rezoned  to enlarge the Davis Bay business  area in this case, it would encourage  other similar applications for  rezoning there that would be hard to  refuse, and that would eventually  cause further conflicts with  surrounding homes and commercialization of the beach. Despite  the representations of Mr. Salahub's  many friends to consider his a special  case, the board understood that it had  to remain impartial. With regret, it  refused the zoning, but it was noted  that this should not prevent Mr.  Salahub from building his shop, as  there were several suitable alternative locations available, some quite  nearby.  This decision has caused difficulties for the board, because many  people disagree with it. Unfortunately  the correct moves can't always be  popular ones. I think the board  deserves some credit at least for  trying to act responsibly and put the  public interest first. The directors are  open to one serious criticism, though.  I can see no excuse for their taking  over a year to give the man a  decision.  Removing  the mud  of insult  Editor, The Times,  Sir: It is with relucttance and regret  that I took a pen in hand to write this  letter. The reason for my writing is a letter  written to the Sunshine Coast Regional  Board February 3 by the wife of one of my  competitors accusing me of the foUowing:  1) Hlegal land use in connection with  my business;  2) shop building not conforming to the  National Building Code;  3) not paying utUities at commercial  rates  4) not complying with WCB  regulations.  In the consequent press reports of the  SCRD meeting there was a report of some  more mud slinging, implying that I was in  business UlegaUy; that I was moonUghting  and generaUy was in unfair competition  with local business.  In spite of the fact that the complaining  lady received a reply onFebraury 16 from  the planning department of the SCRD  refuting her charges, neither she nor her  co-complainers (there were four other  signatures on her letter) had the courtesy  even to caU me and apologize, let alone try  and make amends pubUcly.  Therefore, the distasteful job of  removing the mud so freely flung at me  became my task.  To answer the charges made against  me, I shaU foUow the order in which they  were made.  1) The attached letter from SCRD  planner Mr. Paul Moritz that he wrote at  my request indicates that my auto body  business is "a legal non-conforming use as  you have had a business licence for auto  body work since the adoption of the  Regional District's first zoning bylaw in  1970."  2) On my building permit issued for the  construction of my shop it states in two  places: fuU compliance with the National  BuUding Code required. The former  buUding inspector, Mr. F. Rayburn, used  to Ue across the street from my shop and  as a conscientious and dedicated man, I  am sure he would not have tolerated any  deviation from the code. However, he  needn't haye had to; I have a copy of the  National BuUding Code and have built the  shop, made certain of fuU compliance.  3) Anyone wishing to check has my  express consent to contact B.C. Hydro,  . B.C. Tel and the Regional Water Board to  confirm that I do pay commercial rate on  aU three utUities.'  4) I haveg(ahd had for years) a'copy of  the WGl^ddent prevention regulations.

About location, there is another aspect  of not locating in prime comme,rcial  areas: one has to have a much higher  advertising budget to remind people of the  fact that he is in business, which is a  considerable operating expense, but that  is part of the game to accept.  Another point on moonlighting:  although I personaUy don't do it, anyone  who has the energy and ambition to tackle  two jobs is doing his apprenticeship to  become a small businessman and should  be applauded and not disparaged.

Editor, The Times,  Dear Sir: In regard to the two licence  proposals for the Gulf of Georgia, as Uilrd  and fourth generation fishermen we  strongly oppose the proposal.

Remember u vuat number of tho  sports fleet uses the same type of geat aa  the commercial trollor, cannon balls and  steel lines. The only difference Is they use  them 306 days a year.  There seem to lie no restrictions on  fishing derbies; anyone who wants to stnrt  one can do so. The big derby Is proposed to  run over four weekends this year.

De Cunha, however, claimed that these  foods have "a high waste factor. We have  tried them several times, most recently  for a month on the 'Queen of Coquitlam'."  He also said these types of food caused a  supply problem as they usuaUy came from  small bakeries, "and we would need more  in a day than they would normally bake in  a month." De Cunha did say that a coarse,  brown bread is avaUable on the ferries and  if passengers didn't see it displayed to  request the staff for it.  Edney then asked for a greater variety  of sandwiches to be served, "other than  the usual ham, eggs, beef and salmon." He  suggested installing microwave ovens and  offering corned beef sandwiches as an  alternative.  Edney also complained that whUe soup  was available on the ferries the staff  refused to serve it before 11 a.m. "What's  the internal reason for this?" he  demanded. "I saw some people furious  last summer because the soup was ready  and they weren't allowed to have it."  "That's asinine," De Cunha agreed,  saying, "In some areas we have supervisory problems." He agreed to make sure  the situation was rectified. Edney,  continuing his battle for better food, then  wanted to know why customers could get  only scrambled and not fried eggs for  breakfast.  "I was asking myself that this morning  coming over," De Cunha replied. He said  that while the ferries corporation buys  their eggs bulk liquid form there are also  individual eggs available for people who  liked them fried.  Edney next complained that whUe  there is only one cook at breakfast, there  are often thcee or four food servers,  usuaUy without enough to do. One of them,  he suggested, should be back in the kitchen  helping to make the toast. De Cunha  agreed to this as weU saying the matter  was "one of internal supervision."  The ferry management, claimed  PearseU, have a "slot machine food  syndrome." He suggzsted that people who  "are not turned on to junk food" should be  offered alternatives.A way to do this, he  said, would be to reserve one side of the  cafeteria "for people orientated food."  De Cunha took offence at the suggestion  the quality of his food was inferibr.  He said ge was uproviding the best  service possible considering the constraints under which the cafeteria has to  operate.  De Cunha concluded by saying it is  "highly unlikely" that either an expanded  hot food service or hamburgers wiU be  offered on the Horseshoe Bay to Langdale  run.

"What's the board for then?" he asked.  "What the hell are we supposed to do and  what's the taxpayers' money going for if  we can't make these kind of important  decisions?"  Speikermann said he was not sure what  action the ministry could or would take if  the trustees did not drop their opposition to  the testing.  According to the PubUc Schools Act, he  said, the minister "can put you in financial  receivership, if you're not financiaUy  responsible. But that doesn't apply here."  Speikermann said there is a precedent  in-Surrey of the ministry's overriding a  district board of education. However, he  said, the B.C. School Ttrustees Association  voiced concern foUowing that incident and  was told by the ministry that it w.as a  special case.  "Apparently it wasn't so special that  they can't puU it out again if they need a  precedent," he said. "This whole thing  could go to court."  Speikermann said the ministry's  Learning Assessment Program is being  used for poUtical purposes by Minister Pat  McGeer.  "I'm for testing," Speikermann said.  "But it ought to be evaluative testing to  determine a pupU's skills, not comparative testing.  "It's the way they (the ministry) are  using these tests; that's why I'm against  it."  Speikermann referred to a province-  wide language arts test administered to  Grade Four students last FaU as an  example of how such exams could be used  politically. McGeer cited those test results  as proof that British Columbia students  were not being taught fundamental  English skills.  The mathematics test which the  Sechelt district is opposing is the second in  a series of scheduled province-wide  exams.  Board president Fisher, however, said  Mussio assured her that the mathematics  test wUl not be used to compare districts  and would not include test results of individual schools within a district. According to Mussio, results would reflect  only the district's overaU performance,  Fisher said.  Speikermann also said he erred when  he told the board February 24 that  Kamloops and Prince George school  boards had passed motions opposing the  mathematics test.  He said he caUed those districts after  the board meeting and found that although  there is considerable concern about the  test in those areas, as weU as other areas,  no other district board has voted to block  the test as far as he knows.  ���t\i  >ai��'  17th Annual  Hi NEIGHBOUR  PRICES IN EFFECT  UNTIL APRIL 9.  $100 OFF  Regular prices  INTER-CITY FURNACESI  What n aupar eavlngl   FtoQular prlcoa on  Inter City furnncoa urn roilucod *10O.

The test step consists of walking up and  down two eight inch steps in time to a beat  for three.minutes. After the three minutes  the pulse is taken for 10 seconds and the  results compared to Canadian norms put  out by the federal government.  If the pulse is below the recommended  level (a slow pulse means a healthy heart)  another three minute test is taken at a  faster beat and again the pulse is read.  The outcome of this second test will give  one a good idea of where he stands  physically according to Canadian norms.  Follow up counselling will be available for  those who wish to begin or continue an  exercise program.  For most people physical activity  should not pose a problem. A "physical  activity readiness questionnaire" has  been designed to identify the small  number of adults for whom physical activity might be in appropriate or who  should have medical advice concerning  the type of activity suitable to them. As a  precautionary measure the Fitness Service ask everyone to complete the brief  questionnaire before taking the step test.  The whole process should take only  about 30 minutes. During this time one will  also have the opportunity to have his blood  pressure taken and-or look over the  resource material available.  Fitness testing and counselling sessions  are scheduled for the weekend of March  19-20 in Gibsons, Sechelt and Pender  Harbour.  The sessions involve testing of cardiovascular fitness (heart, lungs, blood  vessels),taking blood pressure and  presenting information about local  programs, exercise, hear disease, etc.  Participants will learn about the condition  of their heart, an exercise of benefit to  persons of all ages and levels of fitness.  The session will be held Saturday,  On the rocks  By PAT EDWARDS  There are lots of dates to redmind you  of this week. On Friday, March 11, there  will be a ladies club meeting at 7 p.m. All  ladies are invited to attend. On the  following weekend, Saturday, March 19,  the ladies are having a club bonspiel. They  have asked the men to reverse roles that  day and run the kitchen, sweep and clean  ice and {operate the club while they curl.  Any men interested in volunteering their  help can contact Ron Lacey or leave their  name with Gus. Still with the ladies, on  Thursday, March 24, they are getting  together eight rinks to go to Sechelt for the  day. Good luck, ladies.  I would like to remind curlers that fees  are overdue. Please get ttie money in to  Gus as. soon as possible. His job is hard  enough without the added burden of  hounding people for late fees.  Two other bonspiel dates to keep in  mind are March 12 and 13 for the mixed  bonspiel, and April 2 and 3 for the mens.  Be sure to get your rink in while theres is  still space.  The last curling is set for April 3. After  that we will be pulling the boards and we  will try to get skating going by the Easter  weekend, weather permitting.

Hydro sells energy essentially  at cost with any margin of net income  going back into the business to reduce  the amount of capital that must be  borrowed for new projects. As the cost  of providing service to customers goes  up, rates for electricity must follow.  Despite a year of cost-trimming and  holding the line on staff requirements,  expenditures for materials, labour,  services and borrowing have all risen  sharply. The rapid cost increases have  hit Hydro and other utilities hard,  particularly over the past few years.  Hydro is also incurring new costs  in meeting its responsibilities to minimize the environmental and social  Here's why:  impacts of new projects. To meet these  expenses, and to ensure adequate  supplies of electricity, the new rates  announced recently for all classes of  Hydro's electric customers are necessary to avoid deficits bft&Jtectric  service in 1977/78.  1  THE DAYS OF CHEAP  ENERGY ARE PAST  As long as inflation continues,  rates will continue to rise���along with  the costs of other products and ser- ���  vices. Utilities throughout North  America have been forced to raise  rates for electricity with increasing  frequency. However, B.C. Hydro's  electric fates over the past 15 years  have lagged well behind rising levels  of the personal cost of living.  TO OBTAIN THE LOWEST  POSSIBLE INTEREST RATES  To meet the steadily increasing  demand for electricity by B.C. Hydro's  customers/new generating and  delivery facilities must be built. Most  of the money required to build these  facilities must be borrowed. And to  obtain it at the lowest possible interest  rate, which ultimately benefits you,  the consumer, we must maintain a  sound financial position. Additional  revenue from the new rates will assist  Hydro in achieving that position.  Here's how much:  j  ALL CUSTOMERS AFFECTED  All classes of customers-  residential, general, commercial and  industrial���will be affected by increases in B.C. Hydro electric rates  this spring. For most residential  customers, the Increases will range  from 5 to 12 cents a day for electricity.  SERVICE CHARGE  The cost of electric service    ���  includes fixed costs, which do not vary  with consumption, plus the cost of  energy actually used. B.C. Hydro, like  many other utilities, is now introducing  a service charge to segregate part of  these fixed costs which include meter  reading and billing, but which predominantly relate to the cost of  distribution lines and other facilities  roqulrod to deliver onergy to your  premises.  In tho caso of the electric rate,  those fixed costs have in the past  boon spread ovor the first stop of  tho residential rnto.

ELECTRIC RATE INCREASES  The following table indicates  the Increases In tho residential  electric rate. Actual increases on  each bill will vary with the season  and the amount of electricity used.  For about 80% of residential customers, the average monthly increase  in the cost of electricity will range  from $1.50 to $3.70.

The Sunshine Coast Chapter of the  Registered Nurses.underthe presidency of  Mrs. June Bandi, have been active in  promoting Physical Fitness with emphasis  on the enlightenment of the adults of  tomorrow.  In co-operation with Susan Milborn and  her staff, the nurses have made presentations to the school board and teachers of  the importance of regular daily physical  activity throughout the entire.school life.  Elementary pupils have become very  enthused. To; encourage high school  students to participate in their own well  being, the nurses are sponsoring a poster  contest to depict "Fitness Is ��� ."The  chapter has provided two pedometers as  prizes and has obtained donations of a  tennis raquet and a track suit frton H.C.

They will be helping  with the physical testing weekend in  Gibsons, Sechelt and Pender Harbour.  This will occur on March 19 and 20 and  the testing will be for cardio-vascular  fitness with "step-test" and resource  material and information provided by the  Heart Foundation.  The nurses have co-operated with and  supported nutritionist Sue Nichols in her  submission to the school board regarding  healthful eating habits in the local schools,  not only in quality of foods consumed but  also in quantity and the environment in  which they are consumed.  The chapter has purchased, and is  making available to women's groups on  the Peninsula, a film on detection of breast  cancer by self examination. If a group is  interested in a showing of this film,  arrangements may be made by contacting  the PubUc Health office at 886-2228.  The R.N.

Others disappear fdr days at a  time, away fishing with their parents.

Talk about family planning, first the Materi's looked after thr.ee  foster children of various ages, up to early  teens; now they have good insight into how  to mold their new adopted family.  Sheila Stewart of Mission Point with  her daughter from West Vancouver,  Cairine Crawford have returned from an  interesting trip. The ladies spent one  month in the Canary Islands then over the  the west coast of Africa for a week's visit  with son Howard Stewart. Howard is  working, surveying and teaching the  natives on a program funded by the World  Bank., .% '. ���  An uneasy atmosphere clouded their  visit to Sierra Leone and they breathed a  sigh of relief as they boarded the plane for  home. Later the day of their departure  Howard saw three men machine gunned  down in the streets. Included on their trip  was a gratifying 10 days in London.  Recently, Marie Hoffar and visiting  Kelowna friends at the Four Seasons Hotel  in Vancouver were treated to a birdseye  view from the hotel window of the placing  of three iron spars or turrets atop of the  Sears building for their revolving tower.  All done by helicopter which hovered  steady as a humming bird, taking three  minutes to place each section, the men  looked like ants working to make fast each  section before releasing the cables ft^m  the whirly bird. It then flew off to return  five or ten minutes with the next piece. A  fantastic performance to watch, a far cry  from the steeple climbers of the past.  The Sunshine Coast Figure Skating-  Club's Ice Carnival was a grand performance and if you missed it that was  your error. The theme was "TV on Ice"  with excellent costumes, wonderfully  choreographed, and a cast of 150 skaters.  Master of Ceremonies was Mike  Dodman, radio announcer from Langley's  CJ JC station who really kept up the thread  of events with his running comments in  jocular fashion adding much to the show.  To top it all this gentleman would not  accept remuneration for his services,  earning the gratitude of the hardworking  mothers.  The president of the figure skating club  is Mrs. Jenny Markwart, and convenor for  the carnival was Mrs. Lynn Jorgenson,  aided by Nora Robinson, Donalda Sigouin,  Janet Trousdell, Bonnie Bennet and Jenny  Markwart. Choreographer was Sylvia  Proke assisted by Joanne Myers and  Nancy Potter.  Guest performers were amateurs with  professional poise and excellence. Tina  Kechler from White Rock, affiliated with  the  Connaught  skating   club,   was   a  PEGGY CONNOR 88WI317  pleasure to watch. This girl spent a  weekend with,the local club partnering the  girls in the dance class. Tina has won her  gold figure and has received an invitation  to appear with the Karen Ma.gnussen's  Kickers, a high honor for an up and  coming skater.  Ken Moir, who belongs to the North  Shore skating club, recently skated in the  Calgary Finals, placing fifth. A marvellous performer of fluid, graceful motion  as he floated over the ice.  It was a high compliment to the local  girls that many people thought there were  more than two outside performers.  Soloists for the club were: Snoopy, Carrie  Trousdell; Captain of the Goodship  Lollipop, Sherry Jorgensen; Cinderella,  Rhonda Doyle; Sunny, for the weather,  Louise Higgs; Samantha, Linda Leitner;  Sweet City Women, Elizabeth Corbin;  Wonder Women, Joanne Sigouin; Big  Bird's Cousin Waa Waa, Liz Lacey and  Woodstock, wee Holly Lacey.  The first show put on by the club was a  demonstration to show how the skaters  were doing. The second one they had a few  costumes.and 75 skaters. This is their first  really big show with 1^ performers all in  costume. They are progressing fast,  putting on a good variety show. Admission  was by donation/Attendance for afternoon  was about 700 with 300 for the evening.  They collected enough to pay for the ice,  without any money left for their other  expenses. They weren't out to make a  profit but hoped it would pay for itself.  Next year they are planning even  bigger and better shotos, good clean  family entertainment worth the price of an  evening's fun.  Thursday, March 10, Sechelt Hospital  Auxiliary meeting. Plans are underway  for the June Lunch. New members always  welcome, 2 p.m. at St. Hilda's Church  Hall.  Time or past time that Sechelt had a  community hall open for public use. It  seems to be getting increasingly harder  for groups to find a hall suitable and  available for their needs.  The art display recently at the center of  arts for Sechelt, Whitaker House, was a  good exhibition of the works of Sechelt's  rising young artist Dan Cory.  Now in residence at Whitaker House is  Irene Crowell. Her oil paintings, water  colours, sketches, photography and pottery represent an endless work of excellence. Meet the artist Saturday, March  12, and view her work, or drop in any day.  Did you know that an idling automobile  engine can consume gas at the rate of a  half gallon per hour?

Homestead Cafe  From the pulpit  burglary reported  PageA-6  The Peninsula Times  The Homestead Cafe in Wilson Creek  reported a break-in and the theft of a tape  deck and about 30 bottles of liquor on  February 28, according to Sechelt RCMP.  The case is under investigation.  In a separate incident, Glenn Phillips  told police a 9.8 horsepower outboard  motor was stolen March 1 from a cottage  he owns in Sechelt.  Police also reported thefts from several  purses left unattended at the Arena. Police  suggest that visitors to the Arena exercise  more caution in where they leave their  valuables.  BOOICIOOK  mmmmm.^m^m0m^m^m,^mmmm^,^mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm^am^mim^m^mtimmmmmmtm  by Murrie Redman  THE FEVER CALLED UVING from  Doubleday, deals with an author noted for  his tales of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe,  Author Barbara Moore has used letters  and journals along with other corii-  pehensive works to bring us an unusual  portrait of The Raven. It is the story of his  personal life not popularly known.  Hollywood has somehow given the impression that Poe, himself, was a figure of  the occult who dwelt in sombre wealth in  some dark manor house on the moors. In  fact, Poe was poor, married to his cousin,  and a consumptive invalid who was  shunned socially by the nineteenth century  citizens of the Victorian era.  He was a man haunted by his own  creative genius. Because of his unrelenting honesty as a critic, he was the object  of scorn by offended fellow American  writers. It was only his talent that  prevented him and his wife from starvation. Had the man time and money  enough to persue his ability to its zenith,  who knows what might have been?  The story begins as Horace Greely,  then editor of the New York Times, plans  Poe's obituary. Greely and Dr. Rufus  Griswold discuss the street gossip about  the newly dead author, hoping to include in  their piece mention of their own writings.  Their jealousy and greed are made obvious as the scene fades to the real  biography of Poe.  Although I persevered to ttie end of the  book, even in its slower sections, it was  rather distressing to learn just how much  popular films based on his writings have  created an almost ghoulish impression of  Poe. It is true, however, that he died early  and mysteriously, bui probably only from  heart disease and the effects of long-term  poverty. I found the personal viewpoint  put forward by Moore to be revealing  albeit depressing. Poe followers should get  a copy of this biographical novel.  By I'ASTOR GERRY FOSTER  In the Bible we find thest? words, "God  did not leave Himself without witness, for  He did good and gave you rains and  fruitful se.asons, satisfying your hearts  with food and gladness."  Regarding this statement, we can  apply it to ourselves and examine our  hearts to see how often our thoughts have  been directed toward God in times of  abundance and plenty, in times of joy and  gladness. Not very often for many, I'm  afraid. We take the credit for our good  fortune and blame God when things go  bad.  But we can join the above with another  portion of Scripture found in Romans which  says, "Do you presume upon the riches of  His kindness and patience? Do you not  know that God's kindness is meant to lead  you to repentance?  Hie passage goes on to talk about  judgment. "But by your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for  yourself on the day of wrath when God's  righteous judgment will be revealed."  Now judgment may be the farthest thing  from your mind but please do not take it  lightly. God is good to us and this should  cause us to thank Him and praise Him, but  one day the patience and goodness of God  will come to an end.  You are receiving day after day of  grace. Jesus Christ awaits your decision to  receive Him as Lord and Saviour. Many  blessings come your way, not that they are  deserved, but because God is gracious.  Isn't it about time you responded to the  love and mercy of your creator?

Wednesday, March 9,1977  The Peninsula Times  PageA-7  Driving charges adjudicated  THERE'S SNOW IN them thar hills.  Although coast areas got nothing but  rain last week, surrounding hills were  Garden  blanketed with snow. This photo was  taken from the golf course.  While we wait impatiently ��� speaking  personally ��� for the coming of the gardening season, it might be as well Wtake a  look at some of the problems that may  have to be faced as the year progresses.  The original curse laid on Adam endures, and as long as we grow things we  shall have to contend with conditions  designed by Nature apparently to make  sure the curse continues. We have myraid  pests above and below ground and scores  of diseases to which vegetable matter is  susceptible. These to a greater or lesser  degree must be expected and the proper  preventative and retalitory measures  prepared in advance.  It has been observed before in this  column that sickly plants, like sickly  animals in the wild, are the first prey of  the predator. Just Nature's way of keeping  the population healthy. So the first care is  to provide sturdy stock and the second to  see that the environment ih which we  intend to raise it, is the best we can give  them.  Soil preparation (to which the Garden  Corner has been been devoted to the point  one must admit that the words "ad  nauseam" might be a fair observation) is,  the first consideration. Without this basic,  the rest of the garden, operation is an  exercise in futility. This Of course includes,  fertilizer administered in the propel  amounts and with the proper care. Placing  artificial fertilizer in the bottom of a hole  in which plants are to be set without a  thorough mixing with the soil can cause  damage to roots, and it seems to be .a, fairly  common mistake. There are other  elements and conditions that should be  investigated before enthusiasm is allowed  to run away with judgment.  Sun, climate temperature and moisture  must all be considered in selecting what  plants to put in what situation.  Then we come to the active a^essive  enemy, the pests in the form of all kinds of  burrowing, flying or windblown insects.  The damage done by some is obvious and  these are the easiest to handle. Slugs, for  instance, are probably the culprits when  leaves are eaten in chunks, seedlings  vanish or buds are spoiled. The cutworm  feeds on most brasslcas as well as many  flower seedlings, and the wilting or dying  By GUY SYMONDS  of young plants is almost a sure sign of  their presence.       '-'  All the knowledge needed to take care  of these visitations is readily available in a  variety of garden books and in literature  issued without charge by the provincial  Department of Agriculture. While it is  possible to-concoct one's own mixtures  under special circumstances, there is  really no need to go to the trouble since  there is a host of reliable general powders  and sprays on the market that used as  directed are both safe and effective. It will  be found that controls containing chlor-  dane, diazanon or malathion will handle  most of the living predators that afflict us  on this coast. These come in dusts and  sprays and their actual application Calls  for care. A few general rules should be  observed.  First remember these materials are  poisonous to a greater or lesser degree. So  1) if you have any suspicion you may be  allergic, wear gloves and wash hands after  using, 2) cover the whole plant including  the undersides of the leaves; 3) do not  treat if plant is wilted, 4) do not dust or  spray in very hot weather, particularly in  direct sunshine, 5) mix dusts or sprays  only as directed, 6) be careful hot to  overdose, 7) use soap or other spread^gf^  recommended by the manufacture*;'* 8jn;  prepare fresh spray for each occasion; 9)  wash equipment thoroughly after use, and  10) most important of all ��� keep all pest  and disease control material out of the  reach of children.

Drinking) and driving offences, a  shoplifting charge and action under the  federal Income Tax Act were all dealt with  in a lengthy provincial court session last  week.  A 31-year-old Coquitlam woman was  convicted of impaired driving after she  was found intoxicated by the RCMP at the  Langdale ferry terminal.  According to crown prosecutor, Peter  Minten, on February 4, the police were  called to Langdale after a car, driven by  Violet MacDonald, nearly caused an accident while driving off the Howe Sound  .ferryv . -    ��� ��� .      ������_���.-  Minten said MacDonald, who had come  to the Peninsula for the day, was found in  the parking lot behind the wheel of her car.  She nearly fell while getting out of the  vehicle and later refused to provide a  breathalyzer sample, he said.  MacDonald's lawyer, Robert Reed, told  Judge Ian Walker that his client had  consumed four bottles of beer and also  taken two valium pills.  "This is one of those unusual cases of a  combination of drugs and drinking," the  judge told MacDonald before fining her  $250 and suspending her license for three  months.  "I want an understanding from you,"  he added, "that you won't drink and drive  in ttie future."  Agreeing, MacDonald said she had  already joined her local chapter of  Alcoholics Anonymous.  The driver of a car that "fishtailed"  through a flashing red light at 2 a.m. was  fined $350 by Judge Walker.  RCMP officers said they witnessed the  offense February 12 while parked outside  Benners Furniture Store in Sechelt. The  defendant, Thomas Stenner, an apprentice  mechanic, allegedly swore and struggled  with the officers and had a blood alcohol  reading of .15.  When asked by the judge to tell the  court what obscenities Stenner had used  with the police, the 23-year-old man  declined to repeat them. Stenner also  received an automatic three month license  suspension.  Joseph McCann was found guilty of  driving with a reading of over 0.8 after  being charged by the RCMP early in the  morning of February 9. According to  testimony given in court, McCann's green  Ford sped through downtown Sechelt,  crossing the centre road,,line several  times. He was finally stopped after going  50 mph in * 40 mile speed zone.  McCann, who told Judge Walker he had  drunk seven glasses of rum, was fined $300  for the offence.  A Burnaby youth came close to  receiving a jail sentence after a dangerous  driving charge was laid against him by the  police last fall.  Gary Henderson, 19, wasjcharged after,  a high speed chase ended in a car crash.  There, were no injuries and his lawyer  asked for a severe fine for the youth.  Crown Counsel Peter Minten, however,  noted that Henderson was also charged  with breach of probation in the incident  and suggested a jail sentence to be served  on weekends be imposed.  "The high speed chase could have had  dramatic effects," Minten told Judge  Walker. "It's only1 good fortune that no one  was injured."  Walker, in deciding against a prison  sentence, lectured Henderson that "as far  as I'm concerned you. have reached the  very limit of staying out of jail."  He then fined him $500, placed him on a  further one year's probation and forbade  him to drive for six months.  A 20-year-old man was given a conditional discharge in provincial court after  stealing a cigarette lighter from Western  Drug Mart in Sechelt.  kelly Joe, 30, was charged after an  employee of Campbells Variety Store  followedhim and reported the theft to  police.  Walker, who heard the accused was  taking up-grading courses in Vancouver  and was expecting a child, took his  previous good record into consideration when handing out the  discharge.  A man who has still not filed his 1975  Income Tax return was fined $25 on each  of four charges of breaking federal law.  Dennis Rozon, a self-employed carpenter from Garden Bay, explained to the  judge he hoped to get his books in order  soon. The court was told the Rozon had  earlier been convicted of failing to file a  return fpr the 1974 tax year.

The ALR land would then  become the site of Hall's industrial  park. The swap has been delayed  because of a difference in assessed  property values. SECTION B: A 20  acre parcel of land, under option to  Hall until Friday. The Regional  Board objects to this location as  Chapman Creek runs through the  area which they want preserved as a  park. The landswap would make this  alternative possible. SECTION C:  Another 20 acre parcel currently  under option to Hall. Last week he  asked the regional board to rezone  both Sections B and C for his industrial park. The area directors  refused, instead agreeing to allow  rezoning only of eight acres in the  northeast corner of Section C.

CouncU approved a motion by Alderman Jim Metzler that Copland explore the  feasibility of the village's becoming a  party to the garbage contract between the  Regional District and Sunshine Coast  Disposal Services.  The Regional District two weeks ago  approved a contract for weekly garbage  collection beginning July 1. Prior to that  date, areas covered under ^he contract  will continue to receive bi-weekly  collection.  Gibsons households and businesses now  contract individually for collection.  Metzler siiggested that joining the contract might secure a lower rate for Gibsons residents.      v  He also noted that various Peninsula  garbage dumps, including the Stuart Road  site above Gibsons, were scheduled for  closing in about six months after the  district begins a sanitary landfill  operation near Sechelt.      ' ,.  Aldermen Ted Hume and Stu Metcalfe,  saying that they were unaware of the  proposed closure, complained that the  action would inconvenience Gibsons  residents who would have to go to Sechelt  to dump trash.  Metcalfe also voiced displeasure that  the Regional District would plan to close  the dump without informing the Gibsons  Council. Gibsons contributes toward  maitenance of the dump.  In other action, council authorized  preparation of tender specifications on a  pump for the village's new well. This is the  next step in the process of linking the well  to the village's water system.  Tying in this second-well should offset  the possibility of a water shortage this  summer, according to previous  statements by Public Works Supt. Fred  Holland.  Consulting engineers Dayton & Knight  Ltd. are handling the process of preparing  the tender documents, issuing a call for  tenders and analyzing the resulting bids.  Council also authorized "on a trial  basis" reserving use of the village tennis  courts two hours a week for a tennis  Mill to shut down  temporarily  The Port Mellon Mill will close down  operations for about three weeks in July,  but there will be no forced layoffs as a  result, according to mill manager Bill  Hughes.  Hughes said the closing is to permit  major maintenance work to be done. He  compared the closing to a similar shutdown for about two and a half weeks last.  Easter.  There will be sufficient contract work  available during the closure to allow any  workers who want to continue working  during the period to do so, Hughes said.  He acknowledged that the snow pack in  the mountains is the "worst in years," but  denied speculation that the closing is  related to a possible water shortage.  The normal snow pack for this time of  year is about 15 to 20 feet, but this year's  pack is only about two or three feet,  Hughes said.  He said a water shortage could develop  if there were an exceptionally dry summer  this year, but that at this point he does not  foresee any problem.  The lake holding the mill's reserve  water supply now contains about 1,000  million gallons, Hughes said. This  represents about a 35-day supply for the  mill at the normal use rate of about 20  million gallons a day, he said.  Mill officials will announce the exact  dates and duration of Uie July closing after  April 1, Hughes said.  program to be coordinated by the Physical  Fitness Service.  The program would be offered to the  public free of charge beginning April 1,  according to a letter from Joy Smith,  secretary of the Sunshine Coast Community Resources Society.  Council approved use of the courts for  the program from. 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.  Tuesdays and 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturdays  after April 1.  Council deferred action on a request ~~  from Mrs. Verna Rivard of Gibsons for a  $450   grant   to   reinstitute   the   Sea  Cavalcade's Queen Pageant.  In its February 15 meeting, council  approved a donation of $211 to pay for the  Sea Cavalcade's 1976 deficit, but indicated  at that time that it would take a hard look  at further requests for this year's  program, scheduled for the weekend of  August 5.  Mrs. Rivard noted that while pageant  sponsors are working in conjunction with  Sea Cavalcade, financing for the two  committees is separate. The cavalcade is  sponsored by Sunshine Coast Concerned  Citizens.  Aldermen voted to approve an increase  in the number of lots planned for stage one  of Seamount Construction's proposed  industrial park, to be located at Payne  Road and Hi.ghway 101.s  Under the revised plan, the developers  would subdivide to 29 lots rather than 22  lots, utilizing the same area. The larger  number of parcels would increase village  revenue from fees and service connections, according to Metzler.  Council balked however at approving  the developer's request for permission to  locate "a single dwelling unit above an  industrial building for either owner or  caretaker use." ,  Alderman Hume expressed concern  that such approval could result in 29  residential units being installed above the  industrial buildings.  Council deferred the developer's  request to the next planning committee  meeting.  Council approved proceeding with the  application for a $2,200 provincial Youth  Employment Program grant. The funds  would pay for employment of one student  for the summer at the rate of $22.50 a day.  The summer job would consist of work  such as park maintenance.  A letter to the village from the B.C.  Ministry of Labour indicated that additional funds for the project may become  available later. Gibsons last year received  sufficient grant money under the program  to employ 12 persons.  Students and unemployed persons 15 to,  24 years of age are eligible for the  program. Application may be made at  Gibsons village offices.  Alderman Hume also reported that he  has been pricing euthanasia machines to  be used in destroying dogs at the village's  nearly-completed pound.  According to the village by-law, dogs  found to be vicious or to be suffering from  any loathsome, infectious or contagious  disease" are to be destroyed.  Hume said the euthanasia machine Is  an electrocution chamber which "has been  okayed by various SPCAs throughout the  country." He described the device as  "very humane, if used properly."  Price of the machine ranges from  $1,350 for a new one to about $900 for a used  one, Hume said.  Hume also reported that the number of  building permits issued by the village thus  far this year is double the number issued  during the same period last year.  Through February 28, 1977, Gibsons,  issued permits for one commercial addition, two new residents and four  residential additions, for a total of seven  permits with a value of $63,050.  In the first two months of 1976, the  village issued permits for one new  residence and three residential additions,  for a total of four permits with a value of  $.33,750.  THE 'QUEEN OF TSAWWASSEN'  will return to the Sunshine Coast this  Friday   Bill   Bouchard,   .assistant  traffic mahager of B.C. Ferries  assures last week's meeting of the  local transportation committee.  Ferry committee wants  'Tsawwassen' back  Advertisinga-q  lets you know  what's what.  CANADIAN ADVERTISING ADVISORY BOARD  import Boutique  Box l069Cnoscns   ;"     ','���>   Phone 086 721  Any further delay in returning the  'Queen of Tsawwassen' to her Howe Sound  run will not be tolerated by local residents,  the B.C. Ferries Corporation was warned  last week. "  That prediction, from supermarket  owner BUI Edney, came at the monthly  meeting of the Sunshine Coast ferry  committee after the members made quit*?  clear their displeasure with the tiny  'Queen of the Islands.'  Bill Bouchard, assstant traffic  manager for B.C. Ferries, was asked why  the 'Queen of Tsawwassen' had been  placed on the Gulf Islands sailing after her  annual refit in December instead of being  returned to, Langdale.  "Is the reason political?" demanded  Edney, noting the Gulf Islands is a Social  Credit constituency. "What is our ferry  doing on the Gulf Islands?" he asked.  "The public is becoming incensed with this  situation."  Bouchard replied that while the ferry  normally on that run was undergoing its  own refit a similar sized ferry was needed  as a replacement. "There's no back-up  ferry for the Gulf Islands like there is  here," he explained. "Once you're left  behind, you are therefor th��next 12 hours,  we can't schedule extra sailings."  The committee members told  Bouchard that whatever problems B.C.  Ferries was having with its scheduling,  the 'Queen of the Islands' should be  removed from the Sunshine Coast "as soon  as possible, as it leaves behind as many  cars as it takes."  Bouchard assured them that the 'Queen  of Tsawwassen' would be back this Friday  as promised.  Don Pearsell of the Concerned Citizens  complained to Bouchard that in the "past  two months both our schedule and our  capacity have been reduced. It's a compounded thing that's accelerated recently.  This is what upsets people."  Pearsell asked if Peninsula residents  would face the same interruptions in  service next year.  Bouchard agreed to let the ferry  committee know in advance of any major  sailing changes and. Persell suggested  5 SOUND CONSTRUCTION  * Carpenter ��� Contractor  * Interior finishing  * house framing  ir concrete form work  Gary Wallmder  publishing tentative schedules in order to  get public reaction before any changes  were made permanent. In the future, said  Bouchard, ferry information would be  available on the local cable station. '  Also discussed at the Gibsons meeting  was the "recent reduction in passenger  fares. Edney reported that "My reaction  and also what I get from other people is  that this is a step in the right direction, hut  only a very minor step towards what is  needed."  He then suggested that B.C. Ferries  should be offering reductions for drivers  and their vehicles during the off-peak  travelling hours instead of threatening to  raise the fares next year.  "We should be making every step  possible," Edney maintained, "to even out  the traffic flow, to keep the ships at their  full capacity."  Gibsons clerk Jack Copland reminded  Bouchard, "People here rely on vehicular  traffica How much more can our residents  bear?

I Wednesday, March 9,1977  The Peninsula Times Page B-5  Halfmoon Bay Happenings  . The annual general meeting of the  Halfmoon Bay Recreation Commission  will be held Thursday, March 10 at 7:30  p.m. at the Wickwire home on Redrooffs  Road. Chairman of the nominating  committee, Peggy Connor, will be submitting nominations for chairman and  secretary-treasurer. Everybody is  welcome and it is hoped that all parents  and others interested in recreation for the  children and teenagers of the area will  make a point of being present.  The film show Friday, March 11, at 7:30  p.m. at the Welcome Beach Hall will be a  program of films on Germany loaned by  the German Consulate. The last film show,  February 25, offered an exceptionally  fine program, courtesy of Association  Films of Toronto. It was an evening of  warmth and sunshine which contrasted  favourably with ttie drizzling rain of the  outside world.  Three of the films pictured Antigua,  one of the Leeward Islands and the  Bahamas, the group of 670 islands and  islets extending southward from ttie tip of  Florida. They showed miles and miles of  sandy white beaches in search of a  swimmer. A film voted excellent by the  viewers was on the flamingoes of the  Bahamas. Produced by the Bahamas  National Trust, in association with the  National Audubon .Society, it showed  flocks of these exotic and gregarious birds  with their long slender legs and lightly  coloured plumage. The fascinating studies  of their strange courtship behaviour were  made possible by the Bahamas National  Trust wardens' station, camouflaged and  stationed strategically near the flamingo  breeding grounds. Here two wardens are  constantly on watch to protect the birds  from human or animal-predators.  "Faces of the Orient" took the viewers  on a tour of the far east with some excellent camera shots of people .and places.  There was a look at Hong Kong, a study in  perpetual motion, at the temples of  Bangkok and the luxurious hotels of  Singapore. To Indonesia for a glimpse of  Bali, where many,things haven't changed  in a lifetime and on to Japan with its infinite variety of the old and the new, the  rush and hurry of modern life and  tranquility.  Plans are well in hand for the St.  Patrick's Day bazaar at the Welcome  Beach Hall on March 17 at 1:30 p.m.  Friends are reminded that the Halfmoon  Bay Hospital Auxiliary will be .grateful  for donations of white elephants, home  baking, pocket books and mystery parcels.  A spring pot luck supper is planned for  ���by Mary Tinkky  the Welcome. Beach Hall on Saturday,  March 19, at 6:30 p.m. and the convenors  are in process of telephoning all members  regarding what they should contribute for  the supper. Any member of the Welcome  Beach Community Association who has  not yet been approached by the committee  should get in touch with any of the  foUowing: Mary Tinkley, Alice Halford,  Hazel Ellis, Mary Murray, or Jean Petit.  As space is limited, members are advised  to get in their reservations as early as  possible. Eileen Hansen is preparing a  program of entertainment to follow the  supper, so a happy evening is assured.'  Janet Allen who is convening the spring  plant sale at the Welcome Beach Hall on  Saturday, May 7, would, like to remind  gardeners who are dividing up their plants  to heel in a few for the sale rather than ,  throwing them out.  Don and Sharon Bennett were in the  area last week to visit Don's mother, Ev  Shannon, in St. Mary's Hospital.  Making their first visit to the Sunshine  Coast are Max and Barbara QuaJley of  Edmonds, Washington, who are guests of  Richard and Lillian Birk on Southwood.  According to the Bible, the days of our  lives are threescore years and ten, but it is  surprising how many Half mooners live  rich and full lives well into their eighties  and even their nineties. Those who think of  old people sitting around in rocking chairs,  knitting and watching television, would be  in for a surprise if they tried to keep up  with the activities of Guy and Olive Clear  for a week or two, for they must surely be  two of the most active people on the  Sunshine Coast. Guy, who celebrated his  82nd birthday in February, apart from  keeping  his   property   in   immaculate  condition and being one of the most successful gardeners in the area, is invariably engaged on some lapidary or  woodworking project. His wife Olive, who  is already famous as an artist, actress and  entertainer, is still seeking new horizons  and recently joined a local rockhound  group of which husband Guy has been a  member for some time. Sunshine Coast  Lapidary and Crafts which has more than  30 members from Gibsons, Roberts Creek,  Sechelt and Halfmoon Bay, meets once a  month at the homes of its members.  President is Mrs. Ev Vernon of Gibsons.  The March meeting of the club was set for  March 2 at the Don MacDonald home at  Redrooffs and as this was the 89th birthday of Mrs. Clear, the members decided  to plan a surprise party following the  business meeting. Nora MacDonald made  a beautiful birthday cake for the occasion  and the decorations included two special  Are you part of the human  race or just a spectator?

Olive is keeping these as a  souvenir and she plans to use them  reversed for her 98th birthday!  On March 1, the Welcome Beach Sketch  Club which meets every Tuesday afternoon at Dorothy Hall's studio, also  honoured their senior member with a  surprise tea and birthday cake. Mrs. Clear  has been an artist for over 70 years, for she  was only 18 when one of her paintings was  hung in the Royal Academy in London.  Properly inflated tires not only mean  better car control, they mean better gas  mileage, says the BCAA.  Underinflated tires cause drag, forcing  the engine to work harder and use more  fuel, not to mention shortening the tread  life of tires. Check that tire inflation often.  JOHN PAUL, left, and Tom Reynolds  put the* finishing touches on a float the  men have been building next to the  Davis Bay Dock. Reynolds said the  100-foot-long float will be jacked onto  the beach at low tide. When the tide  advances the styrofoam sections  being attached here will flip the float  rightside up and it will be towed to a  customer in Vancouver. Reynolds  said the Vancouver price of the long  timbers used in the float makes it  cheaper to construct it here and tow  it. ���Timesphoto  Wehavesome very nice little "PeJinuts  Characters" Notes for your young ones,  use them as an incentive to start them off  on a literary career perhaps! .��� Miss  Bee's.

Elected to three year terms were Olli  Sladey, Duncan Simm and Judy WUbee.  Orv Lawson was elected to a two year  term, rgpfcrcing a director who resigned.  The association heard a report from  Shirley Vader, representing the committee organized to secure a swimming  pool for the Pender Harbour area.  Lloyd Davis, association president,  delivered a brief address in which he  described the Upper Peninsula area as the  "logical place for growth" along the  Georgia Strait coast.  Overly restrictive growth planning  "will only send people to our more  progressive coastal and valley communities," he said.  Growth in those areas would  "eliminate our productive valleys and ruin  our major salmon producing rivers such  as the Fraser and the eastern spawning  areafc of Vancouver Island," Davis saida  "Area A with it thousands of acres of  non-productive land and no major  spawning steams is the logical place for  growth. Damn the slow-growth-no-growth  advocates," he said.  Davis also described the Regional  District's guideline of a 4.9 acre average  lot size as "ludicrous".  This eliminates "the land available for  sale and at the same time drives the price  out of reach of the average person, increasing the cost of building and maintaining roads, power, water and by phone  lines, not to mention unnecessarily high  standards regulated by the SCRD," he  said.  "Pollution and ruination of the environment" are being "used as scare  tactics to whittle away our freedoms,"  Davis charged.  PageB-6 The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, March 9, 1977  Retarded children's  group new officers  Sechelt and District Association for  Retarded Children held its yearly election  at the February meeting. The new officers  are: President - Mike Bujan, Vice-  President - Ed Hauka, Secretary - Carol  Duff us, Treasurer - Doreen Turnyek.  Directors are: Don Andow, Terry  Miller, Mary Fraser, Marg David, Sigrid  Bjornason.  Mr. Dinsley reported that the new  training program would start* in the near  future. It was also decided to bring in  films for viewing by the association and  anyone else who might be interested.  ADA DAWE DRAWS the winning  tickets in Peninsula Motors' recent  ���grand opening contest.

By MARYANNE WEST  The CBC has been coming in for an  unusual amount of criticism lately, being  made the scapegoat by the government for  the country's alleged falling apart, among  other things.  So the CBC's president, speaking in  Ottawa recently, announced a whole rait  of new TV programs designed to shore up v  national unity and promote co-operation'  between Radio-Canada and the English  speaking sector of the corporation.  The the CBC, like the government,  really has only itself to blame, although  both the government and we, the public,  haven't cared enou-gh about the CBC to  make sure it understood the priorities in  its role in our overall system.  Back in 1974 the CRTC was concerned  about the CBC's "indifference in drawing  out the full significance of its fundamental  purpose as expressed in the Broadcasting  Act", a diffidence which had "led over the  years to a lack of purpose, determination  and vigour in implementing the objectives  established by Parliament".  To bring its concern to public attention  the CRTC took the unprecedented step of  calling a special weeklong public hearing  that year. It wasn't so much calling the  CBC on the mat as ah opportunity for  Canadians to express their feelings for this  publicly-owned sector of the national  broadcasting system and hopefully to  provide support for it.  And people came, all sorts of people  from across the country: spokesmen for  rural and isolated communities,,  representatives of provincial governments, minority groups who felt disenfranchised," experienced broadcasters  looking for greater diversity and innovation in . programming, and other  concerned individuals. It turned out to be,  as undoubtedly the CRTC had hoped, a  great demonstration that Canadians from  all walks of life do care what happens to  the CBC.  Over and over again the same  hypothesis was put forward*,, the CBC'st  shortcomings and ib inability to come to  grips with them are greatly influenced by  the fact that the CBC has to serve two  masters. Canadians expect public  broadcasting to care about those in  isolated communities, to understand and  support the strong regional identities in  this country, to give leadership in  situations where understanding and  communication groups are needed.  But the CBC, a typical Canadian  compromise, is not public broadcasting in  the fullest sense, but a hybrid financed  partly from the public purse and partly  from advertising.  From coast to coast, from ordinary  people and professional broadcasters, the  plea was to get the CBC out of advertising  so that its priority might be*service to the  people rather than to the' commercial  imperative of providing a market for an  advertiser. Even though commercial  revenue is less than 25 per cent of the  CBC's budget, it was felt it had an adverse  effect upon the corporate mind out of all  proportion to its dollar value.  Specifically on the Quebec issue, Pierre  Pylot show opens  at Whitaker House  .lean Pylot of Selma Park, will liave her  one artist show at Whitaker House March  14 - 26. Mrs. Pylot will be ot Whitaker  House to meet you on Saturday, March 19,  and .Saturday, March 26.  Berton and others pleaded with the CBC to  do something constructive tp further  French-English understanding and to do it  quickly. Berton offered the corporation a  number of suggestions for fostering "the  kind of cross-fertilization that is absolutely  necessary if we are going to remain a  single nation".  That was three years ago.  Now suddenly the CBC finds it can  implement these ideas. They can all be  found in the television programming for  next season "designed to reinforce  Canadians' sense of national unity".  I'm not suggesting the P.Q. victory  might not have happened if the CBC hadn't  been so dilatory. But we might have had a  better understanding of what Quebec's  concerns are and be able to discuss them  more rationally. Hopefully we would  understand more of the history of Quebec,  of the politics, of the aspirations and ideals  of French Canadians, of their contributions to the development of Canada as  a nation. And Quebecers might not feel so  alienated from the rest of us. They might  realize that their fears for their language  and cultural identity are shared by Native  people, Indian, Metis and Inuit, that their  political differences with a bureaucratic  centralist government in Ottawa are  shared with the rest of us.  And what happened to that concern to  put the CBC on a more-secure foundation,  both feet on the same side of the fence, the  public broadcasting side, and to leave the  commercial pressures to the private  sector where they properly belong?  The CRTC came through in fine style,  expressing their filial recommendations  the views they had heard from ordinary  people from Newfoundland, Baffin Island  to Uie'Queen Charlottes. The CBC was  required to drop advertising on radio as of  January 1,1975, and to begin on October 1  of that year a gradual phase out of TV  advertising at the rate of one minute per  broadcast hour per year.  A government agency had responded to  the etiheerns of the little guy with dynamic  leadership. We began to wonder if the  system might just be workable after all.  But of course it wasn't to be ��� the  government wouldn't support the CRTC.  The CBC screamed foul. It couldn't do  without the $40 million it received from  advertising. And to really frighten the  government ��� because after all what is  $40 million these days( ��� CBC insisted it  needed $80 million to replace it. No one  publicly challenged these figures, nor  worked out how much it would cost over 10  years. The CRTC had asked for only one  minute per hour per year, but you'd have  thought it was going to bankrupt the  country.  St. Augustine defined a nation as "an  association of reasonable beings united in  a peaceful sharing of the things they  cherish". If what a nation is willing to  spend money on is any indication of the  things it cherishes, one must conclude  Canada cherishes such things as nuclear  reactors. We can apparently cheerfully  subsidize their sale in the millions of  dollars range and give away further  millions to unknown agents to aid the  . process, but we cannot find the money to  support a CBC free to underwrite the  regional aspirations of this diverse  country.  So perhaps it is little wonder Confederation is coming apart at the seams.  Perhaps we should begin to look not just at  Quebec, or at the role of the CBC, but at  the things we really cherish in Uils  beautiful country of ours.  Following MacKenzie's route  WOODY AIXEN is the front for a trio  of blacklisted television writers in the  1950s in "The Front", opening Sunday  at the Twilight Theatre.  Woody Allen  in movie  'The Front'  "The Front," starring Woody Allen, is  a frequently funny movie about a very  unfunny period in American history.  The film, which opens Sunday, March  13, at the Twilight Theatre, is set in New  York during the early 1950'a when both  live television drama and McCarthyism  were at their peak.  Allen plays a small-time bookie and  restaurant cashier who is persuaded to  "front" for a trio of blacklisted television  writers. Although he can scarcely jot down,  a grocery list, he soon achieves fame and  fortune as one of America's most talented  and prolific writers.  Behind'the inevitable Allen comedy,  however, lie the very real tragedies of the  hundreds of persons in the entertainment  industry ,whose careers and, in some  cases, whose lives were destroyed by the  anti-communist hysteria. It is significant  that a large number of the people involved  in making "The Front" were victims of  blacklists in the 50's.  Among these are co-stars Zero Mostel  and Herschel Bernardi, producer-director  Martin Ritt ("Hud," "Sounder," "The Spy  Who Came In From The Cold") and script  writer Walter Bernstein.  "The Front" is not a political tract,  however. Allen describes it as "a human  and often humourous story about people  you care about and how they react to intimidation and pressure."  The film runs through Tuesday, March  15. It is rated for mature audiences and.  carries the warning of occasion coarse  language.  Preceding "The Front" at the Twilight  is "Mother, Jugs and Speed," which plays  Wednesday, March 9, through Saturday,  March 12.  "MJ&S," starring Racquel Welch, is a  comedy centering on a small ambulance  company's outrageous struggle to stay in  business.  Welch is the outfit's "girl Friday," who  yearns to become a paramedic. Bill Cosby  and Harvey Keitel co-star. The film was  directed by Peter Yates, who also directed  "Bullitt" and "For Pete's Sake."  "MJ&S" is rated for mature audiences  and carries the warning of some coarse  language.

Also, the pole line to the site is  completed. A lot of Lion members worked  on this project but special mention should  go to Lion Len Larson for all the hours he  worked on the site. Special mention to Ben  Dubois, Ben Klein and P.V. Services who  are not Lion members but who have made  outstanding contributions to the Lions  project at the Community Park.  Charter Night was held February 12  and turned out to be a very entertaining  evening. Out of town guests were Lion Ken  Labrom and wife. Lion Ken was guest  speaker and gave a very interesting talk  on Lionism and support of crippled  children. Lion Colin Soles and wife from  Texada and Zone Chairman Charles  Saunders from Chinatown Lions Club were  also guests.  Another Casino Night is scheduled for  March 26 in the Community Hall. Lion  Frank Roosen is in charge of this event  and more details will be given at a later  date. The Lions annual Auction Sale will  be held sometime in April. Date and place  will be announced later.

IN HOSPITAL  Mrs. Olive Collias Is recuperating in the  Doris Edwardson 883-2308  hospital in Victoria after suffering a  fainting spell while visiting the city.  Mrs. Doreen Lee broke her foot while  surfing in Mexico and has had an  operation on it in a Vancouver hospital.  LETTER TO DON LOCKSTEAD  This is a copy of the letter being sent to  Mr. Don Lockstead MLA, MackKenzie:  DearSir: On behalf of myself and other  residents in the Pender Harbour area  could we depend oh your support if we put  out a petition to try and get enough people  in favour of a road from Port Mellon to  Squamish? Manpower claims there is not  enough employment and this would  create work for some. Also from reading  your report, you state, "The ferry system  at one time was a system to bring people  together. It now has become a mechanism  for keeping people apart." A road would  solve many problems, people would feel  like travelling as they would not be dictated to by a ferry schedule and high fares,  business enterprises would not suffer  losses like some did last year and one thing  for sure a road never has to go in drydock.  Doris Edwardson.  AMBULANCE ON TWO CALLS  Ian Vaughn was taken to St. Mary's  Hospital by ambulance Sunday. He was  using a jack to raise his trailer when the  jack slipped and struck him in the chin.  Attendants were Willy Mattis and Evans  Hermon.  The second emergency call for the  ambulance was to Garden Bay to take  Mrs. Grabbins to the hospital. Jim Murray  and Evans Hermon were the attendants on  that call.  Cole Edwardson is back from the  hospital in Vancouver where he had an  operation on his cheek. He had been  playing outside and fell on a sharp object  which entered his mouth and went through  his cheek. He is the youngest son of Rae  and Lorna Edwardson of Madeira Park.  DOWN MEXICO WAY  Mike Kammerle and Warren Clay have  left on a trip to Mexico where they will  meet Harold and Joyce Clay and then  travel to Santiago from there aboard the  Clay yacht.
