Only three of them were surfing "It was still light said one friend, Ron Wormald of Victoria, when Mr Hilborn made his last attempt of the day to ride the breakers. A strong boy described as "an all-round athlete" by his father, the youth scuba dives as a hobby and was once on his school's rowing team The combination of tide and strong currents prevented Mr Hilborn from riding to shore on the breaker as he had intended, and instead swept him further out to sea 'I really don't know how it said Mr. Wor- mald, but when Mr Hilborn did not return, his friends alerted the RCMP, who called in rescue crews to search for the missing youth The search, involving Cana- dian Forces and United States coast guard helicopters and the Canadian coast guard cutter Racer, continued through the night Monday morning two more helicopters ind volunteers on shore and aboard five fishing vessels from Sooke joined the search Mr Hilborn said a helicopter flew over him several times, but the search, which covered 17 miles on either side of Jordan River and two to three miles out to sea, missed him Mr Hilborn drifted beyond the search territory For a while he had his surfboard, but he said it started getting waterlogged "Then a log touched my More quake-ravaged villages discovered PATTAN (CP) Army helicopters today discovered two more villages almost demolished by the earthquake that shook northern Pakistan during the weekend, sending the estimated death toll to 200 and the number of injured to officials said.

Mr. Hilborn said later he just yelled at his rescuers and they came and got him. "He was very tired, Mr McMahon recalled, "his hands and feet were blue, but otherwise he seemed to be coherent They took him to a manna, where RCMP and an ambu- lance took him to hospital 'I guess there's only one word tor how I feel, and that's terrific, W H Hilborn, the youth s father, said Monday The youth's sister, Krtthenne. said she believes her brother "has a lot of guts" "They mast have been crazy to go surfing at this time of never done anything like that she said in an interview in Vancouver "But he never gives that sort of boy A spokesman from Victoria weather office said westerly winds were blowing in the area at 35 miles per hour. public at six cents a page the morning of the meeting.

City council voted Monday not to hear a late submission from C. D Nielsen, who wants to develop a tourist campground in the river valley Mr Nielsen wanted to outline his proposal to council Monday, but aldermen said they had decided two weeks ago he should first meet with the city manager on his proposal The city will actually pay less for its fuel requirements for city vehicles in 1975 than in 1974 unless the well head price of oil goes up, City Manager Allister Findlay told council Monday Council approved a bid by Texaco Canada Ltd lowest of five bids, to supply 50.000 gallons of No 2 purple gas at 37 4 cents per gallon, gallons of No 2 orange gas at 44 4 cents per gallon. 60 000 gallons of No 1 gas at 49 5 cents per gallon and gallons of diesel fuel at 36 4 cents per gallon Deputy Mayor Vera Ferguson said the city -should be looking at ways of cutting down on fuel consumption in the event the well head price does go up Buses taken off 20th Si. City council decided to take city transit buses off 20th Street N Monday despite statements from Utilities Director Oh Erdos that some 20th street residents wanted the bus route to stay on their street The change will take place as soon as transit authorities and drivers can be notified The vote was 5-2 with Mayor Andy Anderson and Aid Bill Kergan opposed on Aid Bob Tarleck's motion to take the route off 20th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues N A resident of the street appealed to council to remove the bus route two weeks ago, saying the vibration and noise from the buses were a threat to her husband's health. He is recovering from open heart surgery Her request was backed by a petition signed by some seven other residents, but Mr. Erdos said a number of residents had phoned the tran- sit department supporting the 20th Street route Aid Kergan said moving the route would be unfair to them and to one crippled resi- dent of the street, who, he said, depended on the bus ser- vice to get to and from work Mr Erdos also told council the route has been changed from 19th Street earlier this year because a jog in the street at its intersection with 5th Avenue N made turns for the big buses awkward and constituted a possible traffic hazard School buses will still be allowed to use 20th Street Phantom Flyer strikes again HAMILTON (CP) The Phamton man who borrows planes from airports in Southern Ontario and leaves them in the Hamilton it again early to- day The Flyer who calls him- self the ghost of Billy Bishop, says he borrowed a plane ear- ly today from the Brampton, Ont, flying club and landed it in a field near here It was a repeat of his last flight which took place Nov 17 Billy Bishop was a Cana- dian fighter pilot who shot down 72 German planes dur- ing the First World War "I've taken a plane from one place and landed it in the same place, the Flvei said in an early-morning telephone call to Bill Findlay, edi- tor of The Spectator The Flyer said a friend, who calls himself Eddie Rick- enbacker was along for the (light Rickenbacker was the ace of United States fighter squadrons in the First World War The Flyer said he now has a girl friend She calls herself Amelia Earhart after the United States pilot who went missing over the Pacific in 1937 He said the three were aboard for the flight and Amelia flew the plane over Kitchener this morning Tarleck urges discrimination According to Aid Bob Tarleck the cit> should discriminate against the location of industries here that may be subject to foreign laws In a notice of motion submitted to city council Monday Aid Tarleck, former head of the local branch of the Committee for an Independent Canada, says industries wishing to move into Lethbridge industrial parks should be queried on their position on extra territorial legislation Being subject to extra territorial legislation snould be considered a negative factor in considering the desireability of such industries.
