The committment  was made at last Thursday  night's meeting in the form of  $34,000 which will provide for  two programs, one associated  with Elphinstone and the other  associated with Pender Harbour  High. Each program will employ  a teacher, a teacher's aide and  a child-care worker.  In a brief compiled by members  of the school district, the Department of Human Resources and  the Attorney-General's department, the specific objectives of  the program are outlined. They  are: to give each student grade  ten equivalence as a minimum  education; to reduce delinquency;  to reduce absenteeism; to develop  a more positive self-image; and to  provide an opportunity to re-enter  secondary education.  The initial funds committed by  the board last Thursday will cover  the period from September 1976  to January 1977. While the majority of the costs of the program  will-be borne by the school district, part will be financed by  the Department of Human Resources and the Attorney-General's Department. The amount of  the financial committment to be  made by these other agencies involved is not known, although it  has been called minimal.  The program, which will fall  under the joint jurisdiction of the  school superintendent and the regional director of Social Services,  will operate outside the high  schools although some students  may take some classes in the regular high school program. Both  programs will accommodate  about 20 students.  The curriculum of the program  will be individualized as much as  possible, geared to student aptitudes. Major emphasis will be  placed on basic communication  and mathematical skills.  Ed Nicholson, learning assic-  tance co-ordinator, and Drew  McKee, special counsellor, explained the program further in a  press conference Friday by saying  that students will be taught basic  life skills as well as academic  subjects. He said the students  would be involved in sports,  outdoor education, work experience programs, and be exposed  to industry away from the Sunshine Coast. He said students will  have a chance to learn about logging and fishing if their interests  lie in that direction.  "One of the most important  things is to see changes in attitude in the student's self-image  and the attitude towards the  home and the community."  He said the program aims for the  type of person that has just  given up trying. The program  seeks to change that attitude."  It was also pointed out that  two programs are necessary, one  in the Gibsons area and one in  Pender Harbour, because of cul- .  rural, geographical and social  differences. There is a possibility  of a third program being developed in Sechelt in conjunction with  the new Sechelt Junior Secondary  school.  "We are concerned," said  Nicholson, "that there be a viable alternative to a kid who feels  that he can't hack it in the  regular school system."  Byl  aws move on  The controversial amendments  to land use bylaw 96 and subdivision bylaw 103 were given third  reading by the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board last Thursday  night. Both will now go to Victoria for approval and then return  to the board for final adoption.  The bylaw amendments have  caused recent concern in the Pender Harbour area because it places certain restrictions on developers subdividing land. A petition  had been circulated in Pender  Harbour' opposing the bylaw  amendments but the Regional  Director for that area. Jack  Paterson, has since stated that  the petition was based on misinformation. Paterson also felt the  petition was initiated by developers.  In other Regional Board news,  Chairman John McNevin has  joined Gambier Island Community Association president B. L.  Anthony in calling for written protests to be sent to Victoria to try  and prevent the dissolution of the  Islands Trust by the Municipal  Affairs department. He said that  private citizens should make their  voices heard.  "If    enough    messages    get  through, it wori't be dissolved, 'J  McNevin said.  CAPITAL PUNISHMENT?  AN EFFIGY of Pat McGeer swayed gently in the wind  over Highway 101 near Langdale ferry terminal last Friday. On the same day thousands of demonstrators appeared in front of the Parliament Buildings in Victoria  to demonstrate opposition to the ICBC rate increases.  Water system improved  Regional Board Director Morgan Thompson reported at last  Thursday's meeting that improvements to the existing water  system will be made soon. In  Langdale, a total of 600 feet of  pipe will be replaced at a cost of  $5000. Davis Bay and Porpoise  Bay will both receive a total of  4200 feet of pipe replaced at a  combined cost of $40,000. This  includes replacement of some of  ��� the original wood stave water  mains laid with Sechelt's first  water system.  100,000 for  instone  Elphinstone Secondary school  will receive a $100,000 injection  for improvements and alterations.  This decision was hurriedly  made by the Sechelt and District  School Board Thursday night after the presentation of briefs by  both students and staff from the  recently completed high school.  An estimate to cover the cost  of all the changes and improvements as recommended by the  . two briefs, initially commissioned  by school superintendent John  Denley, was set at $250,000 but  trustees decided to spread this  amount over a three year plan.  The committment of $100,000 was  Budget increased  The school board budget was given a final sanction  by trustees last Thursday night but not before an extra  $135,000 was added on to the total which now stands  close to the $5 m i 11 ion mark.  With $100,000 going to improvements and alterations for Elphinstone and about $35,000 committed to  a new alternate education program to begin next September, the school board budget now totals $4,720,518.  This includes an 18 percent overrun in A to F  section of the budget which is set at a figure recommended by the Department of Education. A special  bylaw was required to allow the board to go over the  basic financing level.  The budget, which has to be in Victoria by\ February 15, was accepted by the board. Trustee Peter  Prescesky voted against the motion to accept the budget because he did not approve of the 18 percent  overrun.  The 1976 budget is not expected to increase the  school mill rate because the increase will be offset by  the reduction in teachers' wages as scion as the federal  wage guidelines are adopted by this province. The  present school mill rate is 34.73 and according to school  board secretary-treasurer Roy Mills it may even drop  slightly this year,if salaries are lowered.  made, for priority items for the  school and the decision had to be  made Thursday night for the  figure to be included in this  year's budget which had to be finalized at the same meeting.  Part of the $100,000 expenditure, which will first have to be  approved by the Department of  Education, will go towards the  cost of painting the interior of  the school, removing the portable  classroom, and blacktopping  areas around the school.  School District Secretary-  Treasurer Roy Mills pointed out  that some of the improvements  listed in the brief have already  been financed by the fire loss  fund. In his report to the board  Mills said that some of the recommended improvements remain to  be done as part of the original  contract of the new school and  that the funding already exists.  Mills pointed out in his report  that the board could raise approximately $80,000 from unexpended contingency funds and  from a sales tax rebate for the improvements on Elphinstone.  However the board decided not to  take that route and instead placed  $100,000 in the 1976 budget. This  amount will not be shared by the  Department of Education.  Commenting on other requests  made in the two separate briefs,  Mills said that some of the recommendations made may fit into a  funding pattern already established by the Department of Education. Upgrading the existing  areas of the school and enhancing  equipment areas not affected by  the fire,  Mills points out, will  .Ml^ Cavalcade attends  Vernon Winter Carnival  Miss Gibsons Sea Cavalcade,  Tracy. McDonald, was a guest  recently at the Vernon" Winter  Carnival.  Along with 30 other visiting  Queens, including Miss PNE and  Miss Bahamas, Tracy was officially welcomed at a coffee party  on February 5. She then attended  the Coronation ceremonies and  presentation of visiting royalty at  the Ice Palace.  That evening the girls attended  the Snow Flake Ball where they  were presented to Lt. Governor  and Mrs. Walter Owen and the  Mayors of Vernon and the honored city of Burnaby.  On Saturday morning, February 7, Tracy took part in the parade which was followed by a  luncheon at the Vernon Lodge.  The girls were then welcomed at  the city hall where they were invited to sign the guest register.  They were treated to entertainment at the Vernon Lodge by a  three piece band which had accompanied Miss Bahamas from  San Andrews, Bahamas. Two  young girls from Hawaii also sang  for them.  Tracy received many lovely  gifts including a hand painted  pet rock; complete with instructions for care, made by the local  elementary students.  During  her  stay  in  Vernon,  Tracy reports she was continually -  identified with the Beachcombers  and the Sunshine Coast and was '  asked to convey greetings to the  cast of the Beachcombers.  have to be considered in .direct  competition and on the. same  basis as similar requests from.  other schools, mainly in the routine maintenance or capital upgrading budget.  "It does not seem fair to give  those areas a particular priority  over any other school program because they happen to have been  submitted as part of an overall  program which has its core objective the isolation of problems  associated with the new .section of Elphinstone school,"  Mills said in his report.  ���'.,  Commenting on the. briefs,  Trustee Claus Spiekermann  said the trustees had inspected  the school and realized the need  for a $250,000 commitment. He  added: "I think it's a large sum  of money and it's unfortunate that  it wasn't initially recognized."  No aides  for teachers  this year  tracy Mcdonald  .. .attends Winter Festival  After already adding $135,000  to the school district's 1976 budget, school trustees were not loo  enthused about spending- anywhere from $23,000 to $97,000  for teachers aides.  Joan Robb, a teacher .at, Gibsons Elementary, told thescHqol  board at a meeting held in Elphinstone Thursday night- that  paid teacher aides would be, desirable because it would* <a)k>w  teachers more privacy during  their lunch hours. She said.teachers' lunch hours are now~t$ic$nJup  by supervising student7 activi-  ties. -����������  But even though the �� ajdes  would be desirable, Ms. Robb.';did  admit that "we were staggered  by the figures." She did not press  the board for an immediate ^commitment but added that there was  a long term need for teachers'  aides. %;'������:;*;���  Trustee Claus Spiefcefjmimv  echoed the board's sentiments  when he said he was not jnTfavor  of a teachers' aides program at  the moment. He also indicated"  that more details were needed in  the STA report. It was suggested  another presentation be prepared  for consideration in next -year's  budget. ->r-r  The old farm isn't like it used to be  by ROB DYKSTRA  The old farm.  She ain't what she used to be.  Just ask Don Huard who, be-  ; lieve it or not, used to be in the  mortgage business until he discovered that there is money in  farming. And if Old MacDonald  could see the Huard operation in  Roberts Creek at this moment, he  would probably cash in his straw  hat and overalls and wonder what  the Sam Heck is going on in this  world anyway.  Don Huard, with the co-operation of about nine other farmers  in this area, is putting the finishing touches on his Hanbury Road  farm that is one of the province's  first environmental control systems.  Simply stated, it means that instead of waiting for weather and  nature to carry out its course in  developing an animal as does the  traditional farmer, climate, feed  and activity will be carefully controlled to nurture the animal to  maximum productivity and  growth. It's a method of farming  that began several years ago in  Sweden and has already proven  to be considerably more efficient  than the traditional way of farming.  Don's major product on his ten  acres surrounded by MacMillan-  Bloedel forest will be eggs and  poultry. A modern wood and  metal barn is being completed  and once the operation is fully  viable Don predicts he will net between $60,000 and $70,000 a year  from the products that come out  of that building.  ��� The barn is presently being installed with $40,000 worth of completely automated equipment that  will cut the working day down to  about three.hours for the feeding,  tending and caring for thousands  of birds.  ��� Listening to this modern day  farmer explain the theories of the  system, it becomes apparent  that farming has turned into a  science.  The most important factor in  the environmental control system is that light and air are artificially controlled to determine  the growth and production of the  bird. According to Don, even the  size of the egg ��� small, medium  or large ��� can be completely  controlled through the regulation  of light arid feed. That in itself  has great significance in terms of  supply and demand. If the market  is flooded with small or large  eggs, for instance, and the market demand is for medium size  eggs, then Don will control his environment to produce medium  size eggs.  There is also a tremendous  saving in food consumption.  Ground chickens, says Don, use  about 40 percent of their energy,  and consequently their food, in  merely moving about to pursue  more food. In the environmental  control system, activity is kept to  a minimum. Three birds will  occupy a small metal cage that  measures approximately 15 inches wide by 30 inches long. All  the cages are serviced by a small  conveyor -track that carries food  according to an automatic timer.  Water is piped into small automatic water cups that can be triggered by the bird's beak.  Another important factor in  this system is that disease is  virtually eliminated. Unlike the  traditional barnyard, the animals  are completely isolated ,from  other animals on a neighboring  farm or wild animals that may be  carrying a disease. Therefore,  there are no antibiotics, no drugs,  and no growth inducing hormones  provided which Don says will  give the consumer a chicken  completely au naturel.  Furthermore, with the temperature maintained at a balmy 65  degrees F., controlled ventilation  and humidity, the animal does not  waste precious growing time in  coping with the elements.  Manure from the chickens will  also be  removed automatically.  The cages housing the birds are  suspended -from the specially  structured roof trusses and periodically, an automated blade will  scrape the manure from the floor  and convey it outside.  Even the manure, Don says,  will be dried and bagged and sold  commercially as fertilizer.  Initially egg production will  amount to about 50.000 dozen,  annually which Don hopes to  eventually increase to 200,000  dozen. 'He has bought an egg  quota from the egg marketing  board and is now the only registered egg grader between Vancouver and Powell River. That  way the eggs can be sold directly from the farm to the stores.  Don already supplies eggs to a  number of the smaller stores on  the Sunshine Coast and he has  also initiated a home delivery  system to senior citizens which  has been curtailed temporarily  because of the present expansion  activities. Once that service is  resumed, the farm will also be  supplying residents of the Sunshine Coast with turkey, geese,  roasting and broiling chickens  and vegetables.  What is the state of the local  market? According to Don he has  already had to supplement his  own egg production with eggs  bought in the Fraser Valley. He  has already sold all the geese  he can produce for /the next  year. And he predicts that he will  be selling 60,000 roasting chickens directly from his farm during  the next year.  One important facet of Don's  farming plans not previously  mentioned is the establishment of  a farmer's co-op that will aim to  be completely self-sufficient in  food production. The co-op so far  includes nine other local farmers  who will be specializing in certain animals and crops.  A goat farm in Port Mellon, for  example, will provide fresh goat's  milk for both members of the  co-op and for sale to the hospital  and consumers. Another farm will  exclusively raise geese. Another  will grow turkeys.  "Each one will be feeding the  other," says Don.  Asked why he decided to become a modern day farmer, Don  Huard's answer is by now obvious: it's a good living. Besides,  he was born on a farm in Quebec  and Vou might say he's going  back to his roots. That's probably  why, a few hundred feet or so  from his super efficient poultry  producing operation, Don has  built a small traditional looking  barn that will house a few horses,  a cow or two, and maybe a goat.  That's to give the farm an  authentic atmosphere, says Don.  DON HUARD will market 50,000 dozen eggs this year with the help of his environmental control system. vm��^��ee,tfmifamimttMfiiwmM iggijanw  Sunshine Coast News, February 17, 1976.

The  world economy is still very sick. There  are civil wars in Angola and Lebanon, and  ' soldiers and guerillas are fighting in  other regions. It is not a very auspicious  beginning to the final quarter of the  .   , 20th century.  But always there is hope. Whereas  ���.   some men take up arms to prove their  '-' point, others choose the road of peace.  The organization that offers mankind an  - . alternative to widespread general warfare  - and possible nuclear destruction is the  - United Nations.  I The United Nations is moving into  ��� its fourth decade of existence, and during  ���, the past 30 years both praise and abuse  ; ��� have been heaped upon the world body.  : ���   Yet few would deny that the United Na-  - tions  must  struggle on,  indeed  must  - thrive, if the world is to avoid disaster.  '��� The very fact that the United Na-  ; tions today has 142 members ��� almost  :- -100 more nations than the 46 signatories  ; to the 1945 San Francisco conference ���  I is proof that statesman everywhere rec-  l    ognize the organization's importance.  \ But just what are the achievements  i    of the United Nations, many will ask. Its  very survival is a triumph for those who  prefer peace over war. And there are  proofs that the United Nations is succeeding where the League of Nations  failed. Its peacemaking role in the Middle  East, past efforts to avert protracted'  warfare between India and Pakistan,  moves in different parts of Africa to prevent fighting from spreading were not  always entirely successful ��� but a United  Nations presence always helped. In the  development of international law, economic and social cooperation, in providing  an annual international forum where  countries can debate the vital new instruments for peace. It also acts as an invaluable safety valve for some angry and  embittered nations, and as a house for  all nations where politicians and diplomats can exchange views freely.  The United Nations has a long way  to go before it attains the heights we may  expect from it. But in the history of  humanity, 30 years is but a moment. And  during its fourth decade, the United  Nations will have to withstand new tests.  This it can do ��� but only with the support  of those who believe in a truly hopeful  world of nations that are united in their  efforts to better the lives of all.  Less greed  l <- As Ottawa unveiled the details of  I its anti-inflation program just before  !    Christmas  ��� a  program  designed  to  regulate the earnings and spendings  ��. of most -Canadians ��� consumers coh-  l    tinued to push their way through the  turnstiles and crowd the escalators of  ;    the nation's stores, buying as if there  were no tomorrow.  ;-';���--������ In our greed we have demanded  I'-fnore from the system we live under than  Mt js capable of producing ��� high wages,  '������^high profits, more goods and services  ���<arid, above all, more gadgets and com-  '���" Jorts than we can possibly use.  '<-������ '��� The work ethic has become an object  ^H-.ridicule. The family is under con-  .;sjant assault. Morality is antiquated, if  Z flS>t obsolete and evidence of a lack of  I;self-discipline is everywhere.  In its belated attempts to restrain  rampant consumerism, the federal government has attempted to legislate  inflation and greed out of existence. But  government controls at every level of our  existence only serve, too often, to divert  us away from attacking the social sins  that are manifested by greed and waste.  Restore some sense of discipline  in all areas of our lives, a discipline motivated by a sense of co-operation and  responsibility and we would be in a better  position to attack the awesome problems  that are facing us in the last half of the  1970s.  To continue to have all restraints on  our lifestyles legislated from above  gives us no motivation to do some honest  soul-searching and to reaffirm man's  essential need to practice his own self-  discipline and constraint.  One nagging question  .": Unfortunately we must applaud the  -school board's decision to spend an extra  ; $100,000 on the new Elphinstone school.  : We say unfortunately because $100,000  '-is. a lot of money and it seems ironic  'lib be pouring that into a school that has  >just been built.  > -:    There's no doubt that something had  to be done. Even a superficial look at  the new school will reveal that it leaves  much to be desired and the student and  staff briefs presented to the school board  recently make that point quite clearly.  But there's one nagging question:  Why wasn't all this work done while  the school was being built?   .

Aha, just as we suspected. She's not using it only for pleasure.  Of shoes and ships and sealing wax  Did you say Patii was here?  Let's talk taxes  by ROB DYKSTRA  This is the saga of Patti Hearst  and the Sunshine Coast.  It happened some six or eight  months ago. The San Francisco  newspaper heiress had been  missing for over a year. She was  presumed to be travelling with  two other people, Emily and Richard Harris. Various reports came  to the Hearst search headquarters; Patti had been spotted in  Toledo, Ohio, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in Denver, Colorado, In Toronto, Canada.  Then one day she was spotted  on the Sunshine Coast, a remote  forested area north of Vancouver.  In fact the report said she was  hiding but in a commune on  Storm Bay, on Porpoise Bay, near  the village of Sechelt.  The local RCMP detachment  was alerted immediately. Armed  Forces helicopters in Comox were  told to stand by. Forestry officials  were asked to help. A plan de  veloped. A commando raid would  take place on the commune at  Storm Bay. They would wait  until 4 a.m. and at that darkest  hour of the morning, when all ,  civilized beings were deep asleep,  the commune's inhabitants, including perhaps Patti Hearst, and  Richard and Emily Harris, would  be taken by surprise.  We pause here for a commercial and we find time to ask ourselves: Did Cst. Wayne Dingle,  RCMP, Sechelt, see himself gloriously on the front page of every  major newspaper in the western  world ���- as the liberator, or captivated of Ms. Patricia Hearst?  "Hje local commando group was  amassed. The watches were synchronized, the comox helicopters  placed on red alert. The countdown started and the raid was on.  Details here become sketchy.  It was dark, a bit windy, and there  may i have been a bit of confusion  because somebody's radio failed  to work. If we could have talked  to an eyewitness he might have  told us that the whole thing was  reminiscent of the Bridge on the  River Kwai. Or MASH.  Anyway, to bring our reader  quickly to the denouement of  this tale, the commune was raided but neither the Harrises nor  Ms. Hearst were found. They  found a young lady who looked  like Ms. Hearst but that's all.  Too bad, everyone thought,  there goes our glory.  The commando group dispersed and if our eye-witness had  been present he may have told  us that everyone went to Wakefield for a beer to talk about the  excitement of the night. But we  wouldn't have believed him because we know Wakefield isn't  open at 4 o'clock in the morning.  Anyway that's irrelevant because  there was no eye-witness.  Do you believe it?

The Kinsmen are especially proud of this blitz as virtually every penny -goes directly  into services offered by the Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation  of B.C. Our next chore is to see  that this money gets spent- and  we are obligated to see that anyone requiring our services on the  Sunshine Coast gets this assistance.  It is especially gratifying when  we can aid our local citizens as in  the past. If in doubt as to what  services are available or if you  know someone that could use our  programs please contact our Rehab Rep., Kin Phil Grafton, at  886-7851.  Any households that were.  missed by our Marching Mothers  and still wish to make a donation; they can be mailed to Kinsmen Club of Gibsons, Box 22,  Gibsons, B.C. and an income tax  receipt will be returned for those  requesting one.  Also, while I have the opportunity, I would like to extend our  thanks to Alderman Kurt Hoehne  who volunteered to ride in our  chariot at the Pacific Coliseum,,  during Schmockey '76, which  kicked off our Mothers March  this year. Despite our good start,  we finished last but all returned  home'safe.  ���HAIG MAXWELL,  Co-Chairman,  Gibsons Kinsmen.  Editor: Can anyone tell me how  Gower Point got it's name? Was.  "Gower" an early settler here, or  is the word merely ��� a corruption of the original name?  When Captain Vancouver was  exploring Georgia Strait, a lieutenant of his command sighted a  headland on the mainland coast  and in his honor, Vancouver recorded it on his chart as -Gore  Point. Lieutenant Gore also sailed  with Capt. Bligh of the Bounty  fame and it seems a shame to lose  this name, with its connection  with these two great seamen,  . Vancouver and Bligh.  We lose touch with so much of  our history in these days of  "progress" but the names of the  early explorers surely should be  remembered; it doesn't cost anything.  Gower Point or Gore Point,  which should it be?  ���E.R.EAST  Gibsons, B.C.  Editor's note: According to local historian Lester Peterson,  there are two possible sources  for the origin of Gower. The first  is that the name was indeed Gore  but originally applied to Georgia  Bluff and not the present Gower  Point area. Mr. Peterson thinks  that the Chaster family may have  borrowed the name Gore or Gow-'  er in 1912 to name the area presently known as Gower Point. It is  not known when or how the name  was changed to Gower.  The name can also be identified with Captain Erasmus Gower  of the Royal Navy. This would  correspond to the fact that many  places in this area have names  connected with the Royal Navy. In  this case the name was also  originally applied to Georgia Bluff  which was considered the entrance to Howe Sound.  If you tend to judge the quality  of a product by the price tag  alone, this item won't be of  interest to you. But read on  if you want a quality product  without a direct charge.  The quality product in question is the tax guide enclosed  in" the envelope from Revenue  Canada, Taxation containing  the tax return which you must  complete and return by April  30, though the sooner the  better.  The government people who  prepare the tax guide realize  the average taxpayer is not a  chartered accountant nor a  lawyer, and they devote a great  deal of effort to putting it in the  simplest language possible.  Some people brush it aside,  perhaps because there's no  charge for it, human nature  being what it is. But you're  paying for it through your  taxes, and year by year, more  and more taxpayers are using it  when they sit down to complete their annual tax return.  The tax guide tells you what's  taxable and what isn't. It answers most of your questions,  but if you can't find an answer  there you can telephone your  nearest District Taxation Office  (see the back cover)���again,  without direct charge no matter where you live in Canada.  Here's how the guide'can help  you:  Joe Blow works for a construction company and last year he  earned $10,000. He has a wife  named Irene and two children,  Fred 12 and Lisa 10. Irene does  not work outside the home and  his children are in school.  Joe does not need to pay taxes  oh his whole $10,000. He can  claim exemptions and deductions to reduce his taxable income and therefore pay less  tax.  Joe can claim a personal ex-'  emption of $1,878 for himself,  a married exemption of $1,644,  and dependent exemptions of  S352 for each of his children. '  He can claim $100 standard  deduction for medical expenses  and charitable donations.  He can claim an employments  expense deduction of SI50, any  contributions he made to retirement    plans    or    pension"  funds, union dues, and tuition  fees if he went to school at  night.  If he invested money in Canada  Savings Bonds or other investments, his interest from the investment would not be, taxed,  unless it ismore than_,S;|,QPQ.j  That's-called a~dividend'"and'  interest income deduction.  If Irene decided to get a job,  she could claim child care expenses of up to $500 for each  child, and if Joe gave money  to a federal political party last  year,  he  can  get  a political  contribution tax credit.    '  Joe and his family could also  put aside up to $1,000 a year :  for ten years toward the pur-  ;  chase of a home. Joe would not  be taxed on that money if he  put it into a registered home  ownership   savings   plan  and  used the money only to buy a  home or  furnishings  for  his  own use.  And there's lots more. It's all  in the tax guide.  The tax department's responsibility is to see that Canadians  pay the CORRECT amount of  taxes they owe under the law���  not the most. So in the .tax  guide the department explains _  all  the  benefits���the exemptions, deductions and credits-  available to taxpayers as well   i?  as items of income to which  taxes apply.  Leaf through it  this year before you tackle your  tax return.  Some food prices  expected to drop  As we start a new year, most  of us wonder what's in store.  Agriculture Canada economists  recently provided us with some  clues about food supplies and  prices for 1976. At the annual Agriculture Outlook conference in  Ottawa, they made some interesting predictions about Canadian foods for the coming year.  Consumers can expect larger  supplies of beef, pork and poultry  (particularly broiler chickens and  turkey). Stocks of chicken are  lower than a year ago and there  has been an increased demand  due to the higher pork prices.  Beef and poultry prices are expected to remain relatively steady  during the year while pork prices  are expected to gradually decrease by next fall. Retail prices  for Canadian lamb will remain  high as supplies continue to  decline.  Egg supplies should be in line  with consumer demand. Producer  prices are set by CEMA (Canadian Egg Marketing Agency) and  are geared to production costs.  Retail prices for fluid milk  should not increase much during  '76 since milk production is on the  upswing. Sales of both fluid milk  and cream should increase.  Butter stocks will be less than  last year but will still be  adequate to meet consumer demand.  Large stocks of skim milk powder are available and consumers  should take advantage of this economical buy.  Consumer demand for cheddar  and Canadian-made variety  cheeses and ice cream is expected to increase and more will be  available.  We can look forward to lower  price tags on stored apples and  pears because of above-average  crops in 1975. Prices for canned  tender fruits (apricots, cherries,  peaches, pears and plums) should  also be lower. However, fresh and  processed berries will probably  cost more.  Because of lower potato production we'll be paying more this  year for both table and processed  potatoes than we did a year ago.  Wholesale prices for fresh  vegetables will probably be similar to those of last year with seasonal price increases expected for  all storage vegetables.  Canadian honey production increased in 1975 and although retail prices are generally firm,  some price specials are occuring.  t  fc  h A UNIQUE perspective of the Langdale  Queen was captured last summer by  Jack Copland.

CBC Radio  ; ��. - *     J i f  He could swear and drink  Between Ourselves, Friday,  8:03 p.m., pays tribute to Mon-  seignor Athol Murray, founder of  University College of Notre Dame  Wilcox, Saskatchewan, who died  in December, 1975 at the age of  83.  A Catholic priest, Father Murray's attitudes and activities were  definitely non-sectarian. In Re-  ' gina, he formed a team called the  Argos, whose players were Catholic, Protestant, Moslem and Jew.  His school was open to boys of  all faiths, colors, and walks of  life. Notre Dame had a reputation  as a school of hard knocks, for  developing leadership and highly  rated athletic teams.  Athol Murray was larger than  life. He could swear and smoke  and drink like a trooper, but he  loved his boys and they in return  gave him their devotion and their  best efforts. St. Augustine was  his guiding light and he never  ceased his efforts to bring about  religious harmony.  Bill McNeil has included an  interview with Father Murray in  this tribute which he has prepared.

Less calories  than a martini  Films  The Maltese Falcon returns  One of fiction's most popular  sleuths, Sam Spade, returns in  The Black Bird, a film that continues the search for the famous  Maltese Falcon but this time, in a  lighter vein.  In this incarnation, it's Sam  Spade Jr., the detective's bungling son, portrayed by George Segal, who's up to his shoulder-  holster in cut-throats and conniv-  ers pursuing the "Maltese Fal-  con.  The outrageous spoof, which  stars Stephane Audran, (winner  of   the   British   equivalent .of  A premiere show of acrylic  paintings by Brett H. Osborne of  Gibsons will be seen at Whitaker  House from February 16 to 21. .  The show features a collection of  abstract and fantasy works dating from 1968 to 1976.  Mr: Osborne is largely self-  taught, but had a comprehensive  practical training while serving as  an assistant to his father, the late  J. J. Osborne, a commercial  artist. Brett's disciplines include  landscape painting, figure drawing, murals, sign painting, technical and product illustration.  "Oscar"), Lee Patrick, Lionel  Stander and Elisha Cook Jr.,  draws on characters created by  the late Dashiell Hammett. But  the emphasis has switched from  the sort of cold-blooded killing  which surrounded Humphrey Bo-  gart in "The Maltese Falcon,"  directed by John Huston, to zany  comedy.  "The Black Bird" is set thirty  years after Sam (Spade (Senior,  that is) wandered off into the  mists, presumably having unraveled the mystery of the "Maltese  Falcon." Now, his son has inherited his old San Francisco office ��� in a neighborhood that's  badly deteriorated over three decades ��� only to discover that the  fabled figurine is still a solid  gold motive for mayhem.  In His 1941 version of "The  Maltese Falcon," hailed as a film  classic, Huston assembled a landmark cast: Humphrey Bogart,  Mary Astor, Sidney Greenstreet,  Peter Lorre, Elisha Cook Jr., and  Lee Patrick.  Die-hard film buffs, whose  numbers are inestimable, will be  pleased to learn that the Ray  Stark organization persuaded two  of the original cast members to  reprise their "Falcon" roles 31  years later. First is Miss Lee Pat  rick, coaxed out of a ten-year retirement to be seen again as the  incomparable secretary, Effie ���  now a tough and blasphemous old  gal who despises, Sam, Junior.  Second is the original gunsel ���  Elisha Cook, Jr. ��� as Wilmer,  the killer with a baby face and  tiny hands which juggle huge  guns.  The film plays at the Twilight  Theatre Thursday, Friday and  Saturday, February 19, 20 and 21.  Rating is mature.  The Twilight will be playing a  double bill February 22, 23 and  24. Lady Ice starring ex-patriate  Canadian Donald Sutherland and  Jennifer O'Neil is referred to as  an exciting and thrilling story  about a jewel heist. This film,  rated mature, will run with The  Prisoner of' Second Avenue, starring Jack Lemmon, based on Neil  Simon's screenplay. Prisoner of  Second Avenue is rated general.  Showtime for the double bill is  7:30 p.m.  New paintings by Mrs. Yvette  Kent, different and very good.

This is the thin generation,  where thin is in. We all strive to  look like our favorite star. It's  better for your heart, not to mention your reflection in the mirror,  and shopping for clothes, You feel  better, have more stamina, more  sex appeal.  All this is great, but want to  hear something even better?  Want to slim and tone without  sweat, strain, ache and pain? The  secret is yoga. It's been in existence thousands of years and is  still being practiced today. No fad  fly by night method here.  Yoga is exercise, but it's passive exercise. You are never supposed  to  strain  yourself,   only  move within the limits of your  own body. Stretching is an important component of yoga, and  when you stretch in one direction,  you must also stretch in the opposite way, thus balancing your  body. You" must  also exercise  all parts, toning and conditioning uniformly.  In performing an exercise, or  posture, you use deep breathing,  giving your lungs the opportunity to expand fully, something we  don't do in normal bre^hing.  All movements should be done  slowly and with grace, in yoga  (Continued on Page 4)  Rockhoimds  I Something new for the Sunshine Coast was started on Monday, February 9. A group of  "rockhounds", those people who  hunt, collect, polish, cut and  treasure some precious stones for  a hobby, met at the home of  Mr. and Mrs. Jack Chappell in  Gibsons.  This nucleus of a new Lapidary  club for this area extends an" invitation to anyone interested in any  phase of rock hounding to' join  them in forming this new club. If  you are interested phone Mrs.  Berna Chappell at 886-9204 or  Mrs. Nora MacDonald at-885-  9393. .���  Young photographers display work here  The Vancouver Art Gallery's  Extension Program is touring the  province with a series of prints  by .younger B.C. photographers.  The exhibition will be in Gibsons  February 24 in the Elphinstone  Art room and in the Pender Harbour Secondary School library,  February 26. Times for the showings are 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. ,in  both places. ��  Also as part of the program,  Mrs. Darcy Edgar, an animator  from the extension department  will meet with high school students during the day to discuss  photography oh a technical level.  She will also be on hand during  the evening showings. '''  The show will feature approximately 50 photographic prints.  For the most part these prints are  the work of young artists newly  graduated from the Vancouver  School of Art and the Fine Arts  Studio Program at the University  of British Columbia, although the  work of several instructors and  "indejiendents" is included.  Both color and black and white  prints are included. Some of the  artists represented are Fred  Douglas, Nettie Adams, Bill Cu-  pit, Tony Westman, Katrina von  Flotow, Harry Tonn, Jim McKen-  zie, Blake Murray and Tom Wak-  yama. The work includes landscapes, portraits of family and  friends, studies of the human  figure and a social documentary  of the province.  There are some tongue-in-  cheek portraits by Anna di Spirito  who shows a fine feminine, almost decadent sensitivity for decorative detail. Dale Pickering is  represented by a series of air-  brushed, hand-colored prints in  electric, acid-toned colors. Her  prints record random configurations of people moving through  the landscape, their mundane  activities ��� walking, sun-bathing  ��� seemingly charged with meaning. A series of sinister portraits  of the performers in Circus Minimus by Lesley Moyle have been  printed using the new Ciba-  chro'me process. Color prints are  made directly from slides on  acetate without the use of an in-  ternegative. Lucien Duhamel has  done a highly sensuous series of  soft-focus studies of the human  figure while Marion Penner-Ban-  croft has some delightful neighborhood landscapes of Kitsilano  Beach in Vancouver.  Admission to the.showings is  free thanks to grants from the  B.C. Cultural Fund and the National Museums Corporation.  Feb. 19, 20, 21  Thur. Fri. Sat.

THOMAS & Co 886-7111  Yoga passive exercise  (Continued from Page 3)  ., this is important. Yoga incorporates mental as well as physical  -discipline. You control your body  With your mind.  ; Another important aspect of  ypga is relaxation. After each  asana, or exercise, you must completely relax, let your whole person rest, before going on to your  vnext asana. When you have completed the series of exercises  that you have chosen for yourself  you must spend a few minutes  in complete relaxation called the  sponge. You lie flat on the floor  on your back with your palms up,  and totally relax. Starting with  your feet and working up your  bony you tense, and then relax  every muscle, feet, ankles,  calves, and so on. When you have  relaxed this way you mentally  search your body for tension and  command it to relax.  After lying and relaxing totally  for five or more minutes you  open your eyes, and slowly, as if  awakening from sleep, get up  bringing your peace and relaxation with you. It's wonderfully  refreshing. This relaxation exercise can also be marvellous  when you feel particularly tense.  When my husband comes home  from work especially uptight I put  him through this relaxation. It  has less calories than a martini,  and is a lot healthier for you.  People who teach, or have been  doing yoga postures for any  length of time claim many physical problems can be cured, or at  least improved with yoga. Asth  ma, backache, bad posture, circulation, constipation and sinus  trouble, just to name a few. I  know people who claim their  lower back problems improved.  Usually people practicing yoga  feel well, more vital, and alive.  Carol Hubel, yoga teacher in  Gibsons, agrees. "In addition to  creating beautiful functioning  bodies, yoga banishes tensions,  anxiety, negative thoughts and  emotions which rob most people  of their vitality and joy of living,''  she said.  Yoga is nothing new. But we  North Americans who are famous  for our psychosomatic illnesses  and the frequencies with which  we visit our "shrinks" might do  well to give it some serious  thought. And practice.

Kelly's property at Eg-  mont.  The popular hamburger and  hot dog stand was absent from its  usual spot at Madeira Park that  day because Kelly was ill. About  1:30 he noticed smoke in the  camper and by the time the fire  department was called the whole  vehicle was completely gutted.  The vehicle was insured but the  equipment within it, valued at  $1500 to $2000 appears to be a  complete loss.  Authorities are investigating  the cause of the blaze but at this  time they have come to no con  clusions as to the origin of the  fire.  Arrangements are being made  for Kelly to open his kitchen at  the old fire hall in Madeira Park  next week and local citizens have  started up a "Hamburger Fund"  to help Kelly get his business  back on the road. Donations can  be made to the "Hamburger  Fund" tins in Madeira Park.  KELLIE'S KOSY KITCHEN is not so cosy any more.  ���Doug Sewell photo  Elphevents  . by D.J. HAUKA  Events at Elphinstone this  week centred around last Thursday's School Board meeting. The  meeting was packed with students and teachers attending for  various reasons. I was there to  see what would transpire over the  issue of Grads wearing street  shoes and smoking and drinking  in the gym at ^he. Homecoming  next March.  The meeting began at 7:30. By  the coffee break at 8:30 it was  apparent that this issue wasn't on  the agenda. I walked over to  Susan Dixon, our student president and asked her to bring up  the issue.  "No," she replied, "I've got  'other things to ask for, so you  'make a speech."  Sitting at the back (I didn't  want too many people staring at  me) I started to write my speech.  My biggest problem was how to  start. "Madam Chairman,"'perhaps? Or "Uh, hey . . ." or  "Madame High Potentate, your  honored and Grand Wasiers ..."  Deciding in the end not to use  any of these openings I stood up  and asked Chairman Celia Fisher  casually if I could ask a question. There was a brief silence  and then a "Yes, I guess so."  "Thank you." I trembled, and  as I began to look for my notes,  I realized they were on the floor. I  had not the slightest intention of  picking them up; it might look as  if I was grovelling or something.  "It has been brought to our attention," I began, "that the  Grads for the Homecoming want  to smoke, drink, and more importantly, dance with street shoes  in the gym. I personally can sympathize with them. The idea of a  sock-hop is unattractive, especially if you graduated in '52. But  the students, and I think it would  be safe to say, the staff and administration,' feel very strongly  about this. We feel that the grads  should obey the same restrictions  as the students. If 800 kids can  take off their shoes then 300  adults can." With that I sat  down.  The board's reply was that the  shoes in the gym would only  . cause wear and tear that would  happen anyway, so let the  grads use the gym. At this I  slipped over to Mr. Stoochnoff,  while Sue replied we should at  least try to preserve the floor as  long as possible.  I asked Mr. Stoochnoff if he  hadn't earlier said that a dance  like this would do more damage in  one night than has been done  to the gym floor in the past  six months. He said that was true.  In the meantime Mrs. Breadner  stood up and told the board: "I  think you are creating a double  standard. You're saying that the  students have to take off their  shoes but that adults don't have  to do the same."  Then Mr. Stoochnoff backed us  up. He told the board that dur  ing the last few months all the  students have been taking off  their shoes in the gym. He said  the kids were very proud of their  new gym and what would they  think if adults were allowed to  come in with street shoes. Very  nicely put, I thought.  Then George Matthews added  the coup de grace. He asked why  :a proper floor had.not been put  in from the beginning. He suggested a tartan floor should have  been used, which requires little or  no maintenance and would save  the school district a lot of money  in the long run.  In conclusion student council  president Susan Dixon suggested  that if the street shoes are going  to be allowed then the grads  should at least be required to do  their smoking and drinking in the  lunchroom.  The meeting ended without the  board making a decision one way  or the other.  Mr. David Remple, principal of  Gibsons Elementary, made a  most memorable comment to us  afterwards.  "It's ironic that in the past it's  always been the school board  telling the students to obey the  standards. Now the students are  telling the school board."  So hopefully the board will  come to a firm policy decision at  the next meeting. If you happen  to be a school trustee, think on  it, will you?  Group home  consultant  Eric Aldersley, a psychometrist  and researcher at the boys farm  and training school in Quebec,  will be visiting the group home  at Wilson Creek this week.    -  Director for the group home,  Ian Fenning,' said that Mr. Aldersley will conduct seminars for  staff members of the group home  and other members of the professional community. He is expected to be here from Monday  to Thursday.  Director Fenning said Mr.  Aldersley offered to come to the  Sunshine Coast in a consulting  capacity at no cost to local  authorities.

The local congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses has just returned from their first semiannual two day Circuit Assembly  at the new Assembly Hall in  Surrey. About 210 of the 223  members in the local congregation were able to attend, including the young ones, a spokesman  said.  The main discourse by District  Overseer Stand was entitled ' 'Are  you doing what God required of  you?" drawing to their- attention the urgency of the time we  live. in. He based his discourse  mainly on Micah chapter 4, encouraging strict adherence to  Bible principles, and being aware  that soon Jehovah will do away  with this system of things through  his son Jesus Christ. This means  a total governmental rule in the  earth by God and not by man  made governments.  WE ARE HERE TO HELP  IF MONEY IS YOUR PROBLEM  A loss is a Gain  The exhilarating enthusiasm of  TOPS B.C. 578, Gibsons, continues into the new year. Perhaps  it is the encouraging mild weather  that is helping to keep the overall losses so great. A record of  88% pounds lost has been set for  the month of January.  The terrific losses of the six  new members must be a definite  challenge to all the slow movers.  Tina Vanderhorn earned the Miss  November awards and was also  queen for a day. Leader Jan Rowland presented her with a corsage  a banner and a huge collage  bon voyage card with a poem to  send her on her way to Australia where she will see her  granddaughter.  Charms were awarded to all  new members who showed a  weight loss over the year and over  the holidays. Sandra Morrison  and Maureen Gledson received  charms for .ten pounds lost during one month.  Leader Jan presented special  bouquets to Georgina Nasadyk,  Debbie Ball and Kay Marshall  for all they have meant to the  chapter, through example, consideration for others and for. their  dedicated attendance.  v Kay Marshall won the Misis December recognition, -her 'eight, .  'week'charm; and'she* also recaptured her 50 pound loss* pin.  Leader Jan presented Kay with a  beautiful banner and a 50 momenta with a pink rosebud.  Melva Eckstein received her half-  way to goal charm plus her eight  week charm for perfect attendance without a gain. >���  Dorotrry Lucas became a' KIW  (Kops in Waiting) by reaching her  goal weight. She will now have 13  weeks to retain this weight to  become a KOPS. Maureen Gledson has reached her halfway to  goal after only three weeks with  the chapter.  All members are working towards the Provincial Recognition  Day in Prince George May 16. To  help offset ,the cost for members  attending, a bake sale was held  in Super Valu February 14.  TOPS   meets  at  the   Health'  Centre in Gibsons Thursday at  1:30 p.m. Anyone interested is  welcome.

Gibsons struck back shortly  after when Tommy Blaine kicked  a 25 yard penalty goal.

The second half opened with  Gibsons keeping up the pressure  on the UBC goal line. However,  time after time unnecessary penalties were given away by the  Gibsons players and their attacks  came to nought. -  UBC, however, despite the fact  that they were being outplayed  kicked two of the penalties and  Gibsons found themselves losing  10 to 9.  The final minutes of the game  were very tense. Gibsons tried in  vain to score, their efforts being  thwarted by good UBC tackling  and their own mistakes. With  three minutes to go, Tommy  Blaine kicked the penalty goal  which won the game 12 - 10 for  Gibsons.  Despite being let off the hook  it seemed that Gibsons would  lose, for they gave away two more  penalties, within kicking range.  Luckily for them the UBC place  kicker missed both and Gibsons  emerged victorious.  ��� TIDELINE ���  Plumbing & Heating Contractors  RESIDENTIAL ��� COMMERCIAL  FREE ESTIMATES   OfV  886-9414  Box 336, Gibsons  *A  %  llS  **  IGD  I  I  1  I  I.

Both Sechelt and  Gibsons upheld the honor of their  clubs by carting off a fair share  of wins. Nearly 30 rinks participated, beginning at 4 p.m., and  continuing until 2 a.m.  If nose prints are of value to the  RCMP, there is a good supply on  the windows of the lounge, where  spectators strained, for a better  view of the evening's events.  If the number who practiced  last week is any indication, the  turkey shoot on Saturday should  be a huge success. Winners in  the.practice round were Al Pajak  and Bill Clarke in the men's  draw, and Judy Parrish in the  ladies'.  The Bonspiei committee should  consider a talent night to give  non-curlers an opportunity to  hear some of our talented curlers  sing George Washington Bridge  under the direction of choirmaster  Al Pajak.  Construction of the lounge  continues at a rapid pace. We appreciate the help received from  Mr. Zimmerman, the design consultant from Capilano College,  who is presently teaching a night  school course in Gibsons.  Gus Schneider reports that almost enough $5 donations have  been received to sheet one wall of  the lounge. If you would like to  buy a panel, give your donation to  Gus next time you are at the rink.  Pleasure boats up  There will be a dramatic increase  in the number of pleasure boats  on the Lower Mainland by 1980,  according to a background paper  prepared for the North Fraser  Recreation Study. And the increase will mean greater pressure  for berths and ramp facilities,  with a possible shortfall of up to  6,000 berths inless new facilities  are developed. The study has  found that the number of primary pleasure craft in the area  will increase from 53,000 in  1973 to between 76,000 and  86,000 by 1980. Primary boats  are the sole boats in households  owning more than one. If secondary boats are included, the pre-  Meeting  A meeting will be held shortly  betweenHon..

Fort Nelson, usually regarded  by summer tourists as a sleepy  stop along the highway at Mile  300, where gas tanks can be  filled, cupboards can be replenished and clothes washed, is now  becoming a tourist attraction in  its own right. The day may come  when people will make Fort Nelson, Lower Post and the most  northerly part of the province  their summer destination and not,  as is now the case, an enforced  stop while driving to Alaska.  " A pinpoint in a vast expanse of  uninhabited boreal forest traversed only by the Alaska Highway  and several rivers, the Fort Nelson area is the centre of vast  natural resources as yet very little  exploited ��� lumber, agricultural  land and several important minerals including oil and gas. In winter, when ice allows the hinterland to become an incredible jigsaw puzzle of seismic roads, the  town's population increases many  fold to service the natural gas  industry.  To best appreciate the vastness  and uniqueness of this north coun  try, the visitor should take a flip  above the muskeg. Only then can  the intricate mosaic of the land be  visualized: the splotches of dark  green spruce, the squiggles of  leaf-green meadows, the blue  swirls of sloughs and lakes, and  the cutlines, overriding all else,  which criss-cross the land.  Once oriented, take a more intimate look at the town. It is just  the right size, in the, right place  and with the right amount of history to make the traveller feel  welcome. Many letters to the  editor of the Fort Nelson News  attested to the friendliness of its  people during the tourist invasion  at the time of the highway closure.  The town is especially alive and  friendly during the two big events  of the year: the Trappers' Rendezvous in early March and the  rodeo in mid-August. People  come from as far away as Toronto, Old Crow and various cities  in the United States to participate in these events. The renr  dezvous is a celebration of winter,  with snowshoeing, dog-team racing, snowmobiling, flour packing  and a dozen other winter pursuits. The rodeo, held at a local  ranch, pits cowboys against each  other in a wide run of rodeo  sports.  Here are some ideas to make  your stay in Fort Nelson a more  interesting one. Take the road to  the right northbound at Mile  295.5 (byTompkins Truck Stop)  and following all left turns but  the last, meander down to Old  Fort Nelson, an Indian village on  the banks of the Fort Nelson  River. While you take this 16-  mile journey into the past, you  will see on the way the Fort  Nelson of the present ��� old  sawmills,    logging   burns,    the  1976  JiUfir��p��fni  INSURANCE AND   .

Few families live now in Old  Fort Nelson. Most of the Indians  have moved to the more practical  but less romantic and picturesque  site along the highway at Mile  295. Now at the Old Fort the willow, birch and fireweed are  burying the boats and buildings,  the swallows nest in the church,  and "people needing lumber are  denuding the Bay of its distinctive white facade. ,  It was World War II and the  construction of the Alaska Highway that led to the present town  of Fort Nelson. For reminders of  the town's history, drive out  seven miles to the airport where  present residences used to house  American air force personnel.  Now a quiet community of bungalow or two-storey pastel colored  frame houses, it used to be a busy  pioneering complex with barracks, mess hail, a chapel, a post  office, theatre, radio station and  grocery store.  If you continue for three miles  downhill from the airport you will  reach Old Fort Nelson across the  river.

Take the road along the river  a mile downstream to the Port of  Fort Nelson. Here was built the  fort which preceded the present  Indian village and a rich and  abundant garden for airport  residents during the Alcan construction. The Port now serves as  a site for loading barges with  freight brought up from the south  by truck or rail for delivery to settlements  along the   Liard   and.  MacKenzie Rivers as far north as'  Tuktoyaktuk on the Arctic Ocean.  (This Travel B.C. story is one of  a series provided by the British  Columbia Department of Travel  Industry).

The mill, operated by R. H. Crosby, would be zoned as light industrial in a residential area and  he would have to renew his zoning classification every five years.  Although there was some opposition from residents around the  site, the Regional Board has  decided to let the mill remain,  with the option to move it to an industrial site if the classification  is changed by a future board.  & C ELECTRONICS  APPLIANCES Ltd.

Nearly two thousand years ago,  a wonderful pattern was set for  us ��� a practical and unsurpassable way of living our daily  lives. This pattern was set for us  by��Christ Jesus and is as applicable today as it was at that time.  In the Christian Science textbook by Mary Baker Eddy, Jesus  is described, in part, as "the  highest human corporeal concept  of the divine idea, rebuking and  destroying error, and bringing to  light man's immortality." Webster's Collegiate Dictionary includes this meaning.  Again, in the above mentioned textbook Mrs. Eddy says in  quoting Jesus' words, "God is  Love," "more than this we cannot ask, higher we cannot look,  farther we cannot go." Can we  look for a better pattern?  Four winners  Four of the tickets sold by the  Sunshine Coast Kiwanis club are  winners in the Western Canada  Lottery, reports the club.  Winners of $100 each are: G.  Chaillier on ticket 2006016,  Marshall Yawney on ticket  2223800, Lorraine Wright on ticket 2223748 and Lil Hammond on  ticket 2006225.  The Kiwanis are selling tickets  for both the Western Canada Lottery and the Olympic Lottery.  1238% INCREASE  Compared to 1960, the value of  mineral production in the NWT in  1974 represented a 1238 percent  increase while the increase in the  Yukon Territory during the 14-  year period stood at 742 percent.
