 maaamiMmfct^^  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15$ per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Volume 19, Number 47  December 14,1976.  Citizens vs B.C. Ferries, round 2  ���  *���  The Queen of New Westminster docked at the Langdale Ferry Terminal this week. She will replace the old Sunshine Coast Queen who  will probably be sold.   The Queen of New Westminster can carry up  to 196 vehicles.  Don't forget to check the new ferry schedule before  you plan your holidays.  Merchants meet  /I  \ few members of the Gibsons  r-.-wbour Business Association  fW^h annoyed enough at an article in the Peninusla Times to  call for a vote on whether or not  to invite the press to their meetings. Even with what some  people considered to be adverse  publicity, the vote was almost  unanimous to keep the meetings  open.  The first item on the agenda  was the voting in of an executive.  Bill Edny of Ken's Lucky Dollar  was elected President, with Mike  Nutland of the Dogwood Cafe  Vice-President, Paulette Copeland from the Arbutus Tree  secretary, and Jim Frye at the  Bank of Montreal, treasurer.  Other members of the executive  are Jane Graham, Gibsons Fish  Market, Ian Corrance, Cozy  Corner Cameras and Norm Peterson, of Butler Realty.  Off immediate concern was the  dressing up of the lower village  for Christmas. The Christmas  street lights, after years of hibernation are lit again, minus several  bulbs which will be replaced this  week.  A free turkey draw has been  started, tickets can be picked up  at any participating business  and a winner will be drawn every  day, from now until Christmas.  Adrian Stott, formerly with the  Regional Board, was present and  gave a fine oration on his views  and suggestions, unfortunately  it was marred by his bias against  the Gibsons Council.  New  development  At the Gibsons Council meeting  this week, a new development  was outlined by Dick Janowsky.  All Sports Marine at the head of  the wharf is the proposed site  for waterfront development.  It would be a four storey complex,  with office space, a hardware  and sporting goods store, shop  and restaurant. The bottom  floor would have a marine service  centre with possible boat tie-up  facilities. The complex would  be short parking space, but  council agreed that the parking  by-law needs to be updated.  Hoemberg  calls meeting  A special Sunshine Coast Regional Board meeting called by  Area 'A' (Pender Harbour) and  Area 'B' (Halfmoon Bay) Directors Jack Paterson and Peter  Hoemberg has apparently helped  to straighten out the current  controversy within the board over  the Joint Community Use of  School Facilities.  The meeting, held at the board  offices on December 6th, was  called by the two directors under  Section 781 of the Municipal  Act which allows any two directors the right to convene a special  meeting. Members of the school  board and both village councils  Gifts of Hope help patients  The Sunshine Coast Lion's  Clubs delivered over $300.00  in cash and 250 gifts to the  Riverview Mental Hospital on  December 2nd. The gifts  gathered under the lion's  Gift of Hope program will  brighten up this Christmas day  for many of the patients.  Pictured from left to right  are: Sydney Baird, Co-ordinator of Volunteers for the hospital; Margaret Lowther, the  Gift of Hope program Co-ordinator; Gibsons lions Club  President Joe Kampman;  Lions Zone Chairman, Joe  McCann; and Dr. Ian Manning  the recently appointed Director of Riverview.  were also in attendance.  Hoemberg presented a report  stating his position on the board's  refusal to go ahead with additional facilities planned for the new  Pender Harbour school and further explained why the two directors had walked out of the last  SCRD meeting after the board  had decided to delay the project,  thereby making it impossible for  the local plans to be co-ordinated  with the building of the new high  school.  Hoemberg told the board that  the total cost of the joint use  of these facilities would be about  $5.50 per regional taxpayer and  emphasized that it was only  feasible to develop these type  of facilities in co-operation with  the school system. The plans for  the new Pender Harbour Secondary, according to Hoemberg's  report, include additional kitchen  and storage facilities adjacent to  the gym, a band room and a  multi-purpose room.  Acting Chairman Jim Metzler  told the meeting that he was  basically in favour of the proposal  but added that he was not willing  to see the board take on any more  long term financial commitments  at this time. Other questions  discussed included the amount of  time that would be available for  community use of the facilities  and it was later resolved that a  contract would be drawn up with  the school board to the satisfaction of all parties.  All directors admitted that they  were basically in favour of the  proposal with the exception of  the new representative for Area  *F\ Bernie Mulligan. Mulligan  has, however, called a meeting  for this week in order to be able  to discuss the project with his  area.  The Sunshine Coast Concerned  Citizens have once again taken  on B. C. Ferries, this time over  problems arising from the new  schedule issued last week.  At a meeting of the group last  Thursday night it was decided to  forward a night letter to the  minister in charge, the Honorable  Jack Davis, requesting a meeting  to discuss the matter. The Concerned Citizens fed that the cancellation of both the 5:30 a.m.  and the 7:30 a.m. sailings from  Langdale as well as the corres-  pinding sailings from Horseshoe  Bay, will make it impossible for  residents currently commuting  to Vancouver, to arrive in time  for the working day. The group  is also concerned that freight  destined for the Sunshine Coast  and Powell River may be delayed  making it impossible for local  supermarkets and grocery stores  to stock fresh vegetables and  fruits.  Though Davis himself did not  reply to the Concerned Citizens  night letter, B. C. Ferries Assistant Traffic Manager Bill Bouchard called the group on Friday to  inform them that they would be  in touch with Gibsons Village  Clerk Jack Copland this week to  arrange a meeting with the  various local governments. Concerned   Citizens   representative  Don Pearsell told Bouchard that  the group would contact their  local governments in regard to  make their objections known  through this meeting.  The Gibsons Harbour Merchants Association have also voiced  their opposition to the new schedule and have promised the  SCCC their support. A spokesman for the group said last  Saturday that they intend to  write a supportive letter to the  minister in the nearfuture.  Anyone interested in joining  the Concerned Citizens effort is  invited to contact the group by  calling Sue Rhodes at 886-7384  or Don Pearsell at 886-7687.  Board upholds in-camera  A regular monthly meeting of  the local school trustees voted  in favour of maintaining a ban on  allowing the press to sit in on  their in-camera sessions. Administrator Roy Mills later told the  Coast News that the board felt  there was too much of a temptation for the press to use the background information gathered at  these sessionsinconjunction with  other stories.  The meeting held at the board  office last Thursday also agreed  to drop a program to initiate a  "communications advisory committee" between the board,  students, teachers and parents.  The official reason given for the  program being struck from the  diary of board project's was that  all of the groups-had failed-to  answer the board's communications.  Another point of controversy  at last week's meeting was the  decision by Gibsons council in  regard to not proceeding with a  proposed joint project with the  school board on the incorporation  of Gibsons Municipal Library with  that at Elphinstone Secondary.  The board was advised that Gib  sons   felt   the   situation   would  create too many problems.  The board also agreed to meet  with the Sechelt Teascher's Association on December 18th to discuss the appointment of a new-  Supervisor of Instruction and  noted that the STA had refused  to sign a form tothe Anti-Inflation  Board that would allow the school  board to reclaim the teacher's  rolled back 1976 pay-increase in  six monthly installments from  January to June. Mills added  that the teachers are in agree  ment with the proposal but had  already stated a position on signing correspondence to the AIB.  The reclaimed wages will be  stored in a trust fund to be held  until after the Teachers Association appeal the roll-back.  Sechelt Indian Band manager  Clarence Joe attended the meeting to inform the board of how to  pronounce the name of the new  Chatelech Junior High. According to Joe, the proper spelling  would be Shataliegh, if pronounced phonetically.  Dry Christmas??  The Gibsons detachment of. the R.C.M.P..have issued a  warning to all local residents advising them that as of Friday,  December 10th, flying road blocks will be set up each evening  until after the New Year holiday.  Sgt. Ron Nicholas of Gibsons told the Coast News that they  will be checking the "high traffic areas" on a regular basis.  Nicholas added that the time to start watching your alcohol intake is after the second glass of beer.  Remember .08 is the limit and every glass of draft is worth  about .02 while every bottle of beer will cost you about .03.  Hard liquor adds up at about .02 per ounce. The liquor will  burn off at the rate of about .015 per hour.  "Mr. Scrooge" a musical drama opens Wednesday December 15th at Elphinstone Gym,  under the able direction of Ken Dalgleish. Seen here in final preparation are Ian Corrance, in kilt, Rob Ashby as Mr. Cratchitt, little Heather Hogan as Tiny Tim and Geoff  Madoc-Jones as the miserly Mr. Scrooge. Don't miss this one!

At the regular meeting of the Board of  School Trustees last week it was announced that a proposed plan to create a  special group to be known as the Communications Advisory Committee had  been scrapped from the board's diary  of future projects.  The committee, which had originally  been envisioned as a means of interaction  between the board, students, teachers  and parents was stopped due to the fact  that despite an invitation on the part of  the board, and subsequent letters, the  other groups had failed to communicate  to the board their intention in this matter.  This situation leads one to ask whether  this means that the other participants  felt that the quality of current communication was so high that it could not be  improved upon or whether the quality  of communication was just so poor that  the board was unable to communicate  their intentions.  The school board has made an attempt  to set up a structure that would allow  many of the current problems to be discussed by all concerned at regular intervals.  It is unfortunate that they seem to be  shouting into the wilderness.  Humbug to Ferries  The top management of the B. C.  Ferries organization have awarded the  residents of the Sunshine Coast a very  special kind of Christmas present, an  eternity of bad tomatoes, sour milk,  stale bread and an even longer unemployment list.  Perhaps the nicest thing you can say  about this bureaucratic monster is that  they are consistent. Since Jack Davis has  taken hold of the reins of power the service and the cost has gotten consistently  worse. Now, as a Christmas bonus, we  have lost both the 5:30 a.m. and the 7:40  a.m. sailings from Langdale as well as  the 6:30 a.m. sailing from Horseshoe  Bay. At a time when the order of the day  should be more sailings, we get less.  Soon it will be only cm alternate Sundays  at 3:00 a.m.  The lack of early morning runs from  Horseshoe Bay to the coast and back can  only mean that the 70 odd commuters  who make the daily jaunt will soon be  unable to hold their jobs. It will also  mean that those fruit and vegetable  supplies which are loaded into a truck on  say, a Tuesday afternoon to be taken out  the next morning, will now not leave  Horseshoe Bay until almost 8:00 o'clock  the next day. Add one hour on the ferry,  half an hour to the nearest store and it  will be too iate for the produce to make it  on to the shelves before the stores open  their doors each day. These stores are  now able to receive their supplies by  8:00 which gives them time to stock the  counters before the morning rush. For  stores further up the line, especially in  Powell River, it will mean produce is  almost forty-eight hours old when the  stores finally open thefollowing day.  We would like to suggest that all those  rotten tomatoes get put to good use the  next time you're in Victoria, but considering that it is almost Christmas, we will  try to resist the temptation.  New library?  The decision announced earlier this  week by Gibsons Council to the effect  that they will not go in with the school  board on the idea of a joint school-public  library in the Elphinstone addition should  be immediately re-examined.  In a discussion with the Coast News  last Friday, Mayor Larry Labonte stated  that the group who run the library as  well as the groups who most frequently  use the library, was better located in the  lower part of the village. With current  village finances what they are, this means  in effect the library will almost permanently stay as is.  The purpose of a community library is  to provide a source for educational and  entertainment material. By that standard, what better site than in the local  school.  Now when our taxes are again raised  to allow the school board to build their  library and then again in two or three  years when they are raised again to allow  the village to build their library, will it  still seem like a bad deal?  We feel the idea has a great deal of  merit. Let's not toss away an opportunity  to save ourselves some money and get  a better library, fully staffed in the bargain.  . .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Tweenie enrollment is on the increase  in the Gibsons Brownie Pack.  10 acres of highway access property  sold for $15,000. or $1,500. per acre.  A Central Mortgage and Housing loan  for the amount of $54,500. to be returned  over a 50 year period was granted the  Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens society  for the construction of 14 new housing  units.  10 YEARS AGO  West Sechelt's vote for amalgamation  with Sechelt Village was defeated 91  to 51.  In municipal elections in Sechelt, Adele  deLange topped the aldermanic poll with  125 votes. Ken Goddard topped the polls  in Gibsons with 212 votes, winning him  a term as alderman.  15 YEARS AGO  Mrs. Christina Broughton died, almost  one month exactly before her 103rd  birthday.  Gibsons Dutch Boy Restaurant advertised a $1.00 turkey dinner as a one  day special.  20 YEARS AGO  Heavy rain creates problems for highway officials all the way from Port Mellon  to Jervis Inlet.  A concrete bridge will be built across.  Mission Creek replacing the now washed  away temporary structure.  Ten business firms and residents on  Sechelt's waterfront road ask council for  improvements to the area.  25 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Motor Transport will start a  through bus service to Vancouver via  the ferry. There willbe 4 trips daily.  The School Board was advised that  unless water can be provided the Pender  Harbour school will be closed.  Millwood was being sold at $8.00 per  load.  30 YEARS AGO  Bank of Montreal opened a sub agency  in Gibsons.  This is the first bank to be established  on the peninsula. The building in which  it was housed was converted from an  old garage. The office was open 2 days  a week with staff coming from the Pender  Street branch in Vancouver.  Boom business is booming with the  introduction of the bundled boom -  bundles of logs held together with wire  and then enclosed within chained boomed  logs. The logs used to be hauled to  market on a flat raft.  L. R. Peterson  Sechelt. This building was the Whitaker family home during  much of the first quarter of this century. When the second  Sechelt Hotel burned in 1936, the Union Steamships Company  converted the erstwhile home into a lodge. Known in its later  years simply as "Mrs. Duncan's", the place was destroyed by  fir in 1963. With its disappearance, little remained of what  Herbert Whitaker had built as a nucleus of Sechelt village.  Photo, taken by Herbert Winn about 1950, courtesy of Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.  The driftwood story  The   Driftwood   Players   were  born in the staffroom in the old  Elphinstone   in   the   month    of  September. 1969.   Eileen Glassford had discovered that two new  teachers, one John Burnside and  one George Mathews, had both  some theatrical experience  and  some interest in doing amateur  theatre.    Most recently to that  point, Mathews had spent three  years at  Simon  Fraser working  as   Stage  Manager for  a   very  proficient director whose name  escapes me at the moment. ,  My own theatrical background  went back to a winter's evening  in the playground of Mauchline  Junior Elementary School where  in the company of a dozen other  snot-nosed, skinned-kneed Scottish schoolboys in short trousers  I was kicking a tennis ball in  frenzied competition around the  tarmack playground. One of the  doors ofthe school opened during  a break in the action while I  was playing goalkeeper - we took  turns doing that because the goalkeeper got cold - and two of my  friends from school stood there in  their clean and tidy clothes.  "Hello, whit are ye daein?" I  asked.  "We are at the drama club,"  they said.  "Whit's a drama club?"  "Te dae plays and things like  that," they told me.  "Isitftm?"  "Oh aye. it's loats o' fun."  I   was   getting   cold   playing  soccer and it was getting too dark  to see the ball anyway so the next  question was a natural:  "Can I come, then?"  "We'll have to ask Miss Underwood, Come oan in, Burnie, and  we'll ask her."  She did not look with much  enthusiasm at the skinny, dirty >  little schoolboy who stood before  her who could speak in nothing  but the broadest of Lowland  Scots accents but she did invite  me to come back the next week  which I duly did, cleaned and  tidied, and got the comic part of  Peter Bow the Bosun, "lean,  lanky and miserable". It was not  to be the last time that I was to be  accused of being type-cast.  After that there  came other  parts in little plays in the village  then I  moved to Montreal and  joined a group called the Scottish  Players   which   was  remarkable  only for the concentration of eccentric Scotsmen that it pulled  together.   Well perhaps "pulling  together" is a bit too strong since  the   group,   though   strong   on  parties and discussions of definite  intensity,  never did do a play, i  The lady who organized it and  who   had   acted   with   Duncan  Macrae   in   Glasgow,   a   lovely  petite, dark-haired Highland lady '  called Mae Skeoch, took a liking  to me and gave me free diction  lessons  to clear  up  speech  so  garbled as to be virtually unintelligible.  Briefly I was a professional  actor apprentice at the Mountain  Playhouse in Montreal under  Norma Springford, but the pro  fessional actors I worked with -  including Jack Creley - didn't  seem to me to be very happy  folk and I didn 't want to be one.  I did a few things in university  then went up to the Yukon and  did no theatre for about eight  years. In Fernie in 1968 1 was  talked into doing the part of Billy  Liar's father in the play of that  name and to our amazement we  found ourselves at the B. C.  Finals among the best plays done  that year. Then I moved to Gib-  sons having learned about things  like drama festivals and the delight of community theatre competition.  The first worthwhile play the  Driftwood Players did here was  "The Lover" by Harold Pinter  which George Mathews directed  and which Coleen Elson and I  acted in. We won the Vancouver  Island Drama Festival with  George getting the Best Production award and Coleen being  named the Best Actress. I was  one of the runner-ups for Best  Actor to the young fellow who  had made his lifetime debut with  me in Fernie the year before.  The swine, I taught him everything he knew.  The next good one was the  three-act farce, "See How They  Run" which in addition to another  magnificent performance from  Coleen Elson, saw the local debut  of fine local actors Nest Lewis,  Allan Crane, Waldo Dahl, Pat  Baker, and others. This was in  the fall of 1970 and marked the  first time that I had ever directed  a three-act play. Surely I can't  leave "See How They Run"  without mention of the comic  masterpiece turned in by George  Cooper, then principal of Gibsons  Elmentary School, as the bedevilled Bishop of Lax. No one  who ever saw the performance  will ever forget, nor indeed the  performance of Lynne Green as  Ida, the amorous maid.  In the spring of 1971 the play  was "What Shall We Tell Caroline?" and was directed by myself, also acting with Allan Crane  and Coleen Elson. This play also  marked the debut with the  very effective performance of  Mary Livingstone as the wordless  Caroline.  The fall of the same year saw  by John Burnside  the club attempt and pull off  remarkably well the challenging  "Waltz of the Toreadors" by  Jean Anouilh, directed by Coleen  Elson. I played General St. Pe,  self-indulgent and with an eye  for pretty maids and again mut-  terings of type-casting were  heard. The play had great performances from Nest Lewis,  Pat Baker, Doug Honeybunn,  Lynne Green and George Cooper.  It also marked the stage debut  of Barbara Williams who is now  appearing professionally in  Toronto.  Barbara and Nest Lewis were  the stars of our next production -  the very difficult "Suddenly Last  Summer" by Tennessee Williams. Again we overwhelmed  the Vancouver Island Drama  Festival taking five out ofthe nine  awards. Barbara Williams was  the Best Actress in the province  that year in amateur theatre.  Other notable shows were  "The Village Wooing" by George  Bernard Shaw which we again  took to the B. C. Finals despite  the fact that our dub had been  reduced to two adults, myself  and Coleen Elson, and a gallant  crew of Elphinstone high school  students who placed third in the  province for their backstage, led  by the set design and construction  of Randy Kampman. This was  the jewel of 1973. In 1974 we did  eighteen performances to delighted audiences of our homemade pantomime "Dick Whit-  tington in the Sunshine King-  dome" which saw Ken Dalgleish  .make his first glorious musical  contribution, followed by his  more classical work in support  of "Salome" by Oscar Wilde,  last year.  A list of considerable accomplishment that. Now, after a fallow  time of eighteen months it would  seem that the old club may be  ready for a renewal with the new  energy brought to play by Ken  Dalgleish and Geoffrey Madoc-  Jones in the current offering of  a musical Scrooge. We here on  the Sunshine Coast may be  standing on the verge of some  more fine theatrical experiences  presented for the community by  people who live here. I know I 've  got the old itch again.

Marita - Leonard Cohen  Marita,  Please fine me,  I am almost 30.  Haiku for a youngwaitress ~ Earle Birney  With dusk I am caught  peering over the holly  hedge at the dogwood  These last few weeks the  federal government has once  again been busy proving that they  are totally incapable of understanding the day to day problems  and the lifestyle of the residents  of this rainy stretch of coastline.  Those people who have chosen  to live in such places as the Queen  Charlotte's, Ocean Falls and  Bella Bella have been quite  literally cut off from a decent  supply of food and other necesse-  ties. The federal government by  refusing proper negotiations with  Northland Navigation have  allowed this situation to arise and  must accept the responsibility for  the health and well being of those  residents whose lives have been  put on the line.  The time has come for a  complete re-organization of all  B.C. coast water transport service, not only in respect to the  federal government but to those  provided by the province as well.  When WAC Bennett first came  to power in 1952, it was largely as  a result of his promises to provide  decent road and rail service to the  residents of the interior of this  province. Now, 24 years later  there is a similar opportunity to  do the same for the residents of  the coast. We do not need a new  contract with Northland, nor do  we need better service from  Rivtow straits.  What is needed is a massive  federal-provincial commitment to  provide a government run ferry-  cargo service through a redesigned B.C. Ferry organization. At the same time it must be  realized that it is impratical for  either government to expect  service to be a revenue  generating venture. The vast  crown corporation that would be  created by this amalgamation  would have to be heavily subsidized by both federal and provincial funds. The advantage  however would lie in tiie  economic and social benefits that  a reliable service would  encourage. There would be more  people willing to work the basic  coastal industries which generate  much    of    our    national    and  tthe  ���������  ici^v  t^  international trade,  corporations willing to inv  remote areas, more tourist dol  potential for the entire coast1  area and a sense of security that  would allow the villages and  towns, now isolated, to plan their  futures in an orderely and sane  manner without worrying about  the possibility that tomorrow they  may be- cut-off from the rest of the  world.  In order to make this organization a reality it will be necessary  for both Victoriaand Ottawa to do  some serious re-thinking of the  structure and cost cf communication and transportation services.  It is no longer valid to expect the  residents of the coastal area  pay heavy taxes for the provin  road  system  when  they th  selves   have   no   access  to  facility.     The coast desperatley  needs a unified water transport  service  that  will allow through  inter-connecting service, regular  daily runs to every major human  settlement along the coast.  The  residents of the lower mainland  and the interior have had these  services for many years, in many  cases largely through tax monies  provided  by  the  major coastal  industries.  Not only do the residents of this  coast need more service, but it is  also imperative that the service  they do recieve is efficient, safe  and comfortable. The vessels put  on the longer runs across open  water must be caplable of withstanding the worst coastal  weather and the food service  must be kept to a decent level. As  we have learned on the local runs  and Vancouver Island service, it  is too easy to allow these most  basic services to deteriorate to the  point where the residents are  unwilling to use the service  unless absolutely necessary.  The coast can no longer be  forced to take whatever  haphazard service the provincial  and federal governments are  willing to throw it's way. If the  Liberals and Socreds want the  coastal votes they had better  clean up their act. ^  rint...Re-print...Re-prin  Re-print...Re-print. ..Re  Reprinted from the Vancouver  Sun, Tuesday, Nw. 20,1976.

What  if people prefer the test to the  thing itself? Onetoa customer?  As far as the P. Q. is concerned, we should send a reassuring  telegram. If they agree to stay  in Confederation, we'll arrange it  for Vander Zalm to separate  instead.  I didn't think the Socreds went  in much for comic relief, but for  the life of me I can't see why else  they would keep him around.  Maybe this exam idea of his is  not all bad though. With a few  changes we could make it into a  literacy test instead. Obviously  there are a number of voters in  his riding who weren't too well  alified to choose.  m  P.Michaels  Granthams  WANTED  Used Furniture  or What Have You  AL'S  USED FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons 886-2812  Thank you  Editor:  A belated but very sincere  thank you to our many friends and  neighbours for all the help and  kindness shown to our family, not  only at the time of the fire, but  also during the difficult months  since.  As we're sure everyone will  understand the impossibilities  of personally inviting everyone  to our home, we are taking this  opportunity to extend a sincere  invitation to our Open House, on  Boxing Day, December 26th,  1976, from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00  p.m.  We hope everyone will drop by  and help us celebrate the joy of  being "home"again.  Yvonne and Sonya  Walter, Barbara  Valancius  by Jim Holt  It was a wonderful night in the  hall last Monday, to see such a  fine turnout for our final General  Meeting for 1976. A number of  our guests became members  which I was pleased to see, as  our membership is steadily growing, pretty soon we will have to  order more chairs, but don't let  that worry you as there are a few  vacant seats left and we would  like to see them filled.  As you know, our Carpet  Bowling "Tete a tete" is coming  up December 16th, this is for all  our carpet bowling members and  the ladies are arranging something special fortius occasion.  I would like to thank all those  who participated in the Christmas  decorating in the hall, also to the  Square Dance group who left  their decorations up and they are  truly appreciated. Iwant to thank  the Square Dance folks for the  wonderful condition they left the  hall in, it was quite pleasing to  see so many people, young and  old, dancing together and having  such a good time. Kay and I with  Eva and Dick Oliver went over to  watch the dancers, we were only  going to stay 10 minutes but we  enjoyed it so much the time just  flew by and IVj hours had gone  by before we realized it. So keep  up the good work Square Dancers, you are such a wonderful  bunch of people and we welcome  you back anytime.  The light to our parking area  has been installed and it really  makes a difference, so thank you  B. C. Hydro and your crew, for  putting it up. Now if we can just  get Fred Holland and his Merry  Men to install the signs at each  end of Harmony Lane it will truly  make it a Merry Christmas. How  about it Fred, is it possible to  get the signs up? I guess you are  all  busy doing your Christmas  shopping, but don't go overboard  as it is a long time between pension cheques, don't leave yourselves short. I know you want to  try and please everybody but  don't let your enthusiasm get  the better of you.  Our New Years Eve party is  shaping up very nicely, all the  ladies are getting involved  making decorations and the  makings of a real "wing ding"  party. Smorgosbord Supper will  be served at 8:00 p.m., followed  by games and dancing until the  "wee sma hours" the price of  admission is only $1.00 per  person, B.Y.O.B. and ice and  mixes will be supplied free.  Bring along a good appetite as  the ladies are working very hard  to put on a real good meal and I  am sure you will enjoy it.  Mel Eckstein is running low on  'Nabob' coupons and would appreciate   getting  any  that   you  have. She is a real hard worker  so bring her what Nabob coupons  you have so thai she can get  something else for our hall, she  will appreciate it and we will  all benefit from it. For those who  cannot attend the meetings, Mel  Eckstein would be pleased if you  mailed your coupons to her at  P.O. Box 63, Gibsons, Von IVO.  To all our members who will  be travelling to visit with friends,  please drive carefully, watch out  for the other fellow. May the  good Lord watch over you and  bring you home again safe and  sound so that we can have a very  progressive and fruitful 1977.  In conclusion, may I extend  to all the citizens of our community, on behalf of the Executive  members, my wife and myself,  a Very Merry Christmas and a  Bright, Happy and Peaceful New  Year.

Elves Club  For the fifth consecutive year,  the Elves feel they will be succes-  ful once again to help the needy  at Christmas time. The donations  for the Christmas Hampers are  steadily coming in.   To date the  Elves have given a list of 89 recipients names to fill hampers for.  The hampers will be made up  at   the   Gibsons   United   Church  Hall December 17th and they will  be    delivered   December    18th.  (Anyone wishing to help, COME  ON DOWN.)   Donations are still  being accepted at the following  places:     W.   W.  Upholstery  &  Boat Top,  1779 Wyngaert, Gibsons,   behind   Devries.      Or  at  Benners Furniture Store, Sechelt.  A spokesman for the Elves said  the  nicest  happenings occur at  their club, and that makes everything worthwhile. Take the three  grateful young people, all members of one family, who on their  own put on a drive - raising S228.  to repay the Elves for helping a  member of their family who was  down and out.   At the time, the  Elves hamper was all they had.  We   find   people   are   grateful.  Many say to us:   "Now that 1 am  working, I wish to donate because  we were helped by the Elves in  the past."    Then there is that  remarkable group that  donates  a $500.00 cheque to us each year;  the   bakery   that   donates    100  loaves of bread���it just goes on  and on. The lady who worked all  year getting  70 gifts  ready for  the hampers.     This same  lady  and her mother requested a list  of all the elderly recipients and  are now furiously knitting slippers for them, trying to beat the  December  17th  deadline.    The  nice and helpful occurrances at  the club  are just too  many to  enumerate.     Everyone involved  does so well in theirown way, and  it is very much appreciated by the  Elves.  To contact the Elves Club,  write P. O. Box 1107, Gibsons,  B.

The ticket was drawn by Dorothy  Skinner.   The January 7th draw  -is for $1000. and rickets are all  sold. Good luck!  "Scrooge"  Wednesday, December 15th  . will see the culmination of many  ! hours work and dedication when  Elphinstone Secondary School in  conjunction with the Driftwood  Players and interested community members perform "Mr.  Scrooge", a musical drama version of Dicken's classic 'A Christmas Carol'.  Never  before  has the  feisty  Mr. Scrooge been so revealingly  portrayed.  You feel his desperation when he must stand helplessly by as we meet Isabel, the only  love in his life besides money,  or watch the dubious Mr. Sharbey  and his mates diwy up Scrooges'  worldly goods while the corpse  lies   barely   cool   in   his   coffin.  Imagine what he feels as  Mrs.  Cratchitt finally reveals (in song)  with the fury of a cockney housewife exactly what she thinks of  her Bob's guv'vor and mentor.  What powers can bring this slave-  driving curmudgeon to his knees  and cause him to weep pheously?  What powers indeed?  You must  see it to believe it!  In   the   tradition  of pageants  everywhere and in keeping with  the Christmas spirit these members   of   our   community    have  banded together to present an  event  uniquely our own.     Perhaps a friend or neighbour wanting to share the good times with  you is in the cast, who include  (in   no   particular   order),   our  "Mr. Music", Adrian Stott, Joan  Robb,   Terry   Karkabe,   Marian  MacFarlane, Robb Ashby, Mavis  Christmas, Viktor Kalve, Shirley  Spence, Alexis Davidson,  Kelly  Henry,   Gordon   Mulcaster,   Ian  Corrance, Margaret Jones, Geoff  Madoc-Jones,  Rosina  Hastings,  Laura   Lee  Hawkea,   Greg   and  Lauri  Jovic,  George  Matthews,  Donard MacKenzie, Adri Meda,  Fred   Verhulst,    Nadine   Smet-  hurst, Cathy Ayles, someone I've  7p'robably    forgotten,    and    me,  Bruce Wilson.  , -".

Last year the Society received  $2390.00 in donations from individuals and organizations and  paid out $2200.00 in bursaries  and loans. The Society also is  the custodian of theaccount of the  Registered Nurses' Association  of B.

Gibsons Hospital  Auxiliary  Twenty-seven members of the  Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary met  for a festive luncheon at the  Cedar's Inn. The banquet room  was seasonally decorated, and  Jean Longley, Ida Leslie and  writer had an extra hour's pleasure adding our Christmas  touch to the tables. Annie Metcalfe won the door prize, a lovely  poinsetta. We had the magic  number under a bread and butter  plate, but the plates were removed before we got around to  looking under them. All was not  lost, however, as the lady who  had put the number on the winning plate remembered which  place setting it had been, and  amid much laughter, Annie turned over her plate to discover  the winning number.  We did manage to eventually  get down to business and heard  reports from the bridge committee, thrift shop, quilting, extended care, gift shop, therapy and  the Sunshine Convenor. Our  ladies worked 62 hours in various  departments in the hospital, and  several more of course, in the  thrift shop. The thrift shop ladies  spend many hours sorting, which  they never record. We were happy to hear from Vi Harris, our  treasurer, that because we are a  non-profit community service,  there will be no service charge  against our account.  Our junior auxilians, the candy-  stripers, are doing a wonderful  job working the gift shop cart  Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. We have some young  people of whom to be very proud.  We ask that you keep in mind  your opportunity to send your  Christmas wishes by giving a  donation to the hospital through  the Bank of Montreal or the  Royal7 Bank. Your wishes will be  published in the local papers.  Thank you for your support of  our own hospital. May your  Christmas be one of blessing,  and your New Year be filled with  realized hope.

DATED AT Sechelt ,B. C. this 26th day of Novem-  ber' 197a Mrs. A. G. Pressley  Secretary-Treasurer  This littel story is offered with  humble apologies to Messrs.  Shelley, Wordsworth, Shakespeare, et. al.; to Mama (who  dared me); to Gertie....and, most  of all, to Alan Hurst, Principal  of Revelstoke High School for  a few golden years in the Thirties,  for which we will call this one:  "Thank you, Mr. Chips".  Well sir, t'uther day I takes a  littel story up to the Editor, but  I don't linger, becus he is startin'  to twitch. All Editors twitch, jest  before the Day of the Deadline,  an it is shur heart-breakin' to  watch a growd man actin' like  he has et a handful of Mexican  Jumpin' Beans.  Next I goes into the Composin'  Room, where the girls render  order out of chaos with a glue  pot. Mama is sorta bendin' over,  gluein' bits an pieces together.  Marna has new slacks. They is  pure white. They fit. Beautifully.  Snugly.  Over the door is a sign wich  ses: "This is where we Put the  Paper to Bed - We Hope You've  Done Your Part!"  There's a helluva clatter (well,  actualy, it's sorta gentle littel  tinkly sound) an Marna ses wot's  that noise? an I ses it's my hormone wich I ain't used fer years  an it cum outta hiding wen I  spotted that sine.  Well, sir, wotwith one thing an  anuther an a bit of sparkling  repartee (Pierre the Magnificent  will be pleased to know this here  paper is bilingual!) Marna an me  reach an accord.  Mama ses the sign above the  door shudn't be taken too literally  an she is willin' to forgive an  forget if I will put my hormone  back where it cum frum - an turn  out acoloumnon:  Mama's Bottom.  So here it is:  Gertie wus magnificent.    Her  Algebra was immaculate; her  Math wus infallible....an her  French wus faultless.  These things I know - becus  Gertie sat in frunt of me, tenth  row back, in a littel High School  a millyun yeres ago - an saved me  the trouble of doin' homework so  many times I lost count.  Gertie's Geometry wus also  superb, wich wus sumthin' I  reelized sorta sudden in mid-  September, wile the sun wus  hollerin' fer kids to go swimmin'  an a sleepy fly wus buzzin' arount  my ink-well.  Gertie riz up fer to answer a  question an I graduated, sorta  sudden  like,  inter adolescence.  This is the time wen seventeen  years, under certain stimuli,  cums to a SUDDEN BOIL!  Like I wus sayin', Gertie's  Geometry wus exquisite...an it  didn't require Appolonius'  Theorem to find the exact spot  fer a gentle pinch.  Gertie  jumped.      About   ten  inches, as 1 recall. Shortly after,  the Principal and me had a sorta  discussin. In his office. In  private.  "How", he ses, "doyou relate  this unfortunate occurrence to  what we have tried to teach?''  Well, sir, I thunk her over real  quick. The Principal wus real  gud fer Liteature, so I ses it wus  all becus of that feller Shelley --  or mebbe it wus Wordsworth. 1  never did get them untangled.  "Quote it!" he ses.  Sol ses:  "A thing of beauty is a joy forever; It's loveliness increases; it  well never Pass into nothingness,  but will always keep A bower -  quiet for us; A place of sweet  dreams And quiet nothingness".  "Quite so", he ses..."an before I give you six of the best on  each hand, here's another to  remember".  "Backward, backward, O Time  in your flight-Make me a boy  again...just for tonight."

Bligh discovered  Philodendron plant  Once again children in Kindergarten and grades 1, 3 and  5 will be actively involved in a community dental health program. This involves your child's participation in a specially  designed education lesson which will help your child prevent  dental diseases such as cavities and gum disease. Also, at  this time, they will be involved in two "Brush-Ins" with  special flouride paste and rinse. No increase in the child's  internal level of fluoride will result from this special brush-in  program. This special paste and rinse has resulted in 25 to  30% reduction in dental decay.  Permission forms are sent to parents to be filled in and returned to the school. Some of the schools involved in the new-  year program are Davis Bay, Roberts Creek and West  Sechelt. The program involves dental assistants giving  graphic lessons on the art of cleaning ones teeth, with a  horse size set of choppers and about the same size toothbrush. They also show a cartoon about a dragon who has no  friends because people misunderstand his intentions. Then  one day a townsfolk comes with toothbrush and paste and  instructs the sad dragon on how it is done. The dragon  practices diligently at his new found art, and with fang a-  gleaming, becomes a hero tothe surrounding countryside.  The children are given a toothbrush and paste, and upon  observing a kindergarten class after these instructions, one  realizes that every day functionscan not only be done properly, but thay can also be fun to do. Remember: Brush down  from the top and brush up from the bottom, and wear a  happy smile!  m      Music  W7  9     Festival  A meeting of the executive  committee of the Sunshine Coast  Music and Drama Festival was  held on December 6th at the  home of Mrs. Mary Brooks.

She worked  in batik as paintings and clothing,  giving instruction at night classes.  During December there will  be a display of framed batiks at  the library.  Entertainers  Not too long ago, the only form  of entertainment was local talent.  Lately, what with TV. movies  and more money tospend, people  have lost track of what's going  on with entertainers in their  midst. Children especially need  to be encouraged in this way and  also, why pay big money for  "Name" groups when there are  excellent ones in the area. Our  search is for anyone or group  that wish to perform. The Twilight Theatre has generously  db-ttatfid~trjefr spa~(S''fbrr"Su'nday''  afternoon talent shows and a club  room has been donated for Saturday afternoon entertainment.  This gives people of all ages a  chance. Even if you've never  participated in a public performance before, this is the time to  let us know. Auditions will be  held early in the New Year.  Phone 886-7370for information.  by Paula Ashby  Plants are playing a very important part in indoor decoration  these days, they create a pleasing  effect with their environment  wherever they appear. They are  pleasing to the eye, they give us  oxygen in return for the carbon  dioxide we exhale, and give the  air moisture to humidify an otherwise dry atmosphere. Even with  all these assets, most plant  growers accumulate large quantities of plants simply because they  satisfy deep human needs. There  was an appraisal of these needs  written up in the Bulletin of  Atomic Scientists: "Unique as  we may think we are, it seems  likely that we are genetically  programmed to a natural habitat  of clean air and a varied green  landscape...For centuries in the  temperate zones we have tried to  imitate in our houses not only  the climate, but the setting of our  evolutionary past: warm humid  air, green plants and even animal  companions." The same thought  was expressed even more suc-  cintly by Ross Parmeter in his  book 'The Plant in my Window':  "Whether he knows it or not, a  man needs to be close to growing  things."  The plant in his window that  Ross Parmeter was referring to  was in fact a heart leafed philodendron. This modest vine was  responsible for the plant boom  both in Victorian times and today,  and is the most widely grown  houseplant to be found in America. The heart leafed philodendron (known to botanists as Phili-  dendron oxycardium) was first  brought from the West Indies to  England in 1793 by Captain  William Bligh (of Mutiny on the  Bounty) and was forgotten for  almost two hundred years.  Though it initiated the plant boom  of the early 19th century which  turned many a respectable  Victorian drawing room into a  rniniature jungle, this now popu-;7  -lar��� plant���took���a���defmite~baete4*' ~  seat. It's popularity did not begin  again until the mid 1930's when  John Masek, a nurseryman in  Orlando, Florida, rediscovered it.  He made careful note of the  plant's many redeeming characteristics, namely that it grows  virtually care free and pest free,  and is economically propagated in  great quantity.   All three assets.  particularly the latter, were important selling points during the  depression years. Masek promptly began dividing up his supply  of philodendronsand selling them  not only to florists across the  country, but to five and dime  stores as well. Low prices and  ready availability created quite a  demand for these plants. As the  demand increased, so did the  need for variety. Nurserymen  across the country began crossbreeding and dividing the philodendron until now when there are  hundreds of species for a buyer  to choose from, of every size  and shape, leaf colour and texture.  Again, today as in the Victorian  era, this plants begins many an  avid growers collection but soon  takes a back seat to the more  exotic looking palms and ferns  now flooding the market. Commercial greenhouses are constantly 'inventing' new plants by  cross breeding and are importing  many up until now unheard of  varieties from tropical or semi-  tropical areas such as South  America, Africa, Asia and Australia.

"The Bronze Horseman"  is taken from Pushkin's well-  known poem of that name, inspired by thecity's famous equestrian statue, a masterpiece by  Falconet, of Peter the Great, who  in 1703 ordered St. Petersburg  built as "a window looking on  Europe". In the years 1904-05  when the seeds of upheaval were  ripening under its brittle surface,  the city was a facinating, colourful, sophisticated centre of the  arts, which attracted artists and  bon vivants from all over the  world. Driving down its main  throughfare, Nevsky Prospekt  was a memorable experience;  its great stone buildings, clean,  classical lines and uncrowded  stance made westerners feel at  home. The Winter Palace, the  Hermitage Museum, the Admiralty Building with its high spires,  the Fortress of St. Peter and St.  Paul boldly rising above the sinister secrets of the military prison  below the huge dome of St.  Isaac's Cathedral.  The diaries of war correspondent, Maurice Baring; the reminiscences of an American couple on  their honeymoon and the memories of composer Igor Stravinsky  have been used as a basis for  the program. Their comments  and impressions create a vivid,  three-dimensional portrait of  Russia before the revolution, the  crumbling aristorcracy, Bloody  Sunday, the impending fall of  Czar Nicholas, the Japanese  assaults, the plays of Chekhov,  music of Glazunov, novels by  Dostoevsky, the innovations of  Stannislawsky, co-founder of the  Moscow Art Theatre, and marches and folk music cf the time.

Although Al won four straight games, it was no easy victory in the final game.  Book review  by John K. Mason  The Mind Gods by Marie  Jakober. Macmillan (Canada),  165 pages. Price: $7.95.  This first novel by an Alberta  novelist, Marie Jakober, is a  finalist in a Search-for-a-new-  Alberta-Novelist Competition  (we are informed on the front  cover). I enjoy and read much  sceince fiction, so I was prepared  to give this novel my undivided  attention.  -Until the poor quality of the  printing caused me to throw up  my hands in disgust. I refuse  to ruin my eyes because Mac-  millans of Canada are too cheap  to use a dark enough printing  ink on a book retailing for $7.95.  Perhaps this was just a "poor  copy". If so, why was it ever  allowed onto the shelves of a book  store?  I'm sorry, Marie Jakober. I  thoroughly enjoyed what I read  of your novel-the first chapter-  and I look forward to catching  it when a paperback house reissues.  But I honestly wouldn't advise  having any further dealings with  a publisher who puts out such an  inadequately printed book as  Macmillans of Canada have!  by Pat Edwards  Tickets for the New Year's Eve  party at the rink are going well,  but there is still time to get your  tickets. They may be picked up  at Elson Glass, from Harry Turner or Paul Gauci. Gus also has  tickets at the rink. To share the  work load, guests will be asked  to bring salads, but the rest of the  food will be provided by the committee in chargeof arrangements.  Anyone- who is willing to give  Gus three or four hours a week  to help clean and flood the ice  is asked to leave your name at  the desk.  As you have probably read in  the papers, the club will receive  $16,600.    from    the    Provincial  New  Horizons  Recreational Facilities Fund. The  news was received with a great  deal of enthusiasm at the executive meeting last week.  Once again, may we remind all  curlers to bring a dean pair of  shoes to wear on the ice. Maybe  you could put a pair of curling  shoes at the top of your list to  Santa! This is especially important now that our hot water system is in operation.  While we are on the subject,  may thanks to Pat Tyson for installing the hot water system.  Posters have gone out to a  number of clubs in the province,  advertising our first annual mixed  bonspiel in February. Look for  more information in the New  Year.  A one hour session of Bingo  opened the last meeting of the  Elphinstone New Horizons. The  ladies were the lucky ones taking  seven out of theeight prizes.  However, not so lucky at carpet bowling (where skill counts)  the men trimmed the ladies with  a chivalrous score of 14 to 3. In  view of the Bowling Tournament  next week, the ladies had better  wear their best running shoes  and do some catching up.  Members serving on the  Roberts Creek Historical Committee are compiling all possible  data on the pioneer days of the  community. While much has  been documented, the committee  wishes to contact any individuals  who can offer information about  people and events (including  snapshots) of the period prior to  say 1955 before Father Time  erases all memories. They would  appreciate your assistance, so  clear out your attics, mental and  physical, and call Mrs. Betty  Merrick with your findings.  At a last reminder, the yearly  Christmas Party will be held on  Monday, December 20th, at  1:30 p.m. in the Roberts Creek  Community Hall.

BRITISH COLUMBIA HYDRO  AND POWER AUTHORITY  NOTICE    SECHELT  Re: SUBMARINECABLE CROSSING OF -   -  OF SKOOKUMCHUK NARROWS, D. L.6548-L. 4429  EGMONT, B.C.  This Installation was put in service late Spring of this  year. The entire single cable was inspected on November  23, 1976 and found to be in good condition. On the North  side, however, the cable has been displaced in both the  horizontal and vertical planes. During this displacement,  the imbalanced forces on the cable created by the steep  drop off to 240 feet, have caused the cable to slide into  deeper waters. This tightening of the shoreward end has  caused the cable to rise about 18 feet off the bottom in  one end close to t he shore.  It appears that the displacement was caused by Commercial Fishing gear. This theory is supported by a local  report that one boat had broken 600 Ib. Test Trolling  gear when it became engaged on the cable. This near-  miss accident could have been fatal, as this cable is  charged with 7200 Volt.  The Crossing is well identified by Submarine Cable  Warning Signs and all information was published by  Transport Canada, Marine Section in Notices to Mariners,  published by the Canadian Coast Guard, Vol. 1, No. 26,  dated June 25,1976.  I am sure we can expect full co-operation and assistance  from all parties active in this area to ensure no damage is  done to this installation, causing unnecessary interruption  of service which is not only very inconvenient to our  customers, but can also be very costly to the party involved.  If you require further information, a detailed drawing  of this installation is available, at no cost, through this  office.  Thank you for your co-operation.  E. Hensch,  District Manager.

Gabriola:  The Queen of the Islands  'm>s*  Musical Spanish names are  often evident on the coast of  British Columbia, and part of  the charm of Gabriola Island is  the name it bears. This was bestowed, in 1791, by Jose Mario  Narvaez, Spanish explorer who  was examining the waters of the  coast, in command of a small  schooner Saturnina. Some records give the nameas"Gaviota"  meaning "gull", then changed to  Punta de Gaviola, and finally  Gabriola.  Charming, peaceful, easy of  access, Gabriola lies near the city  of Nanaimo. Its appeal lies in  a combination of many things;  history, tamed wilderness, and  beautiful vistas of the sea on  every side.  Dubbed "Queen of the Islands" by its enthusiastic inhabitants, the island has one of  the best climates in North America, with a small yearly rainfall.  Twenty square miles (50 sq.  Kilometres) of some of the most  lovely recreation land anywhere is  enjoyed by residents and visitors,  who, when they want the amenities of a city, hop back and  forth on the car ferry.   It travels  from Nanaimo to Descanso Bay  and carries about 22cars, and 150  passengers, laden with everything from groceries to pieces  of plumbing.  The most famous, and deservedly so, attraction is the Gaiiano,  or Malaspina Galleries. Just off  Berry Point Road, and calling for  a bit of a climb over some solid  rock, this is a most interesting  natural formation. Carved by  wind and tide from the sandstone, it is long enough and high  enough for a walk through. You  may climb in and look down on  the turquoise waters of the little  bay. This gallery was discovered  and named for the commanding  officers of the expedition of the  Spaniards.  Early settlers of Gabriola were  often employed at the coal mines  of Nanaimo. Indeed one old  graveyard reveals the headstone  of a thirteen-year-ole lad killed  in a coal mine explosion in 1898.  Degnen Bay, named for another old timer, Thomas Degnen,  who settled on the island in 1862,  provides a safe harbour for many  small boats. Silva Bay, well  known by yachtsmen from many  waters, was also named for an  early settler. There is an interesting historic church nearby.  The roads are simply called  the South Road and the North  Road. These provide access to  most ofthe island, with secondary  roads leading to intriguing views  of beach and many happy home-  sitt :.  While on Berry Point Road, if  you are an artist, or photographer, orjust enjoy lovely view,  you should walk down to the  beach and have a good look at  the Entrance Island Lighthouse.  It was built in 1876 to guide  ships in and out of Nanaimo  Harbour, and its red and white  buildings, and pulsing light are  a welcome sight to all those at  sea.  An ancient overgrown brickyard lends an air of mystery,  as do the old grindstone quarries.  These were first quarried in the  1930's and cut until the mid-  1940's. Huge cylindrical stones,  four feet in diameter, were cut  from the rock to a depth of four  or five feet, and then loosened  by a small charge of powder.  The stones were cut from the  rock as close to each other as  possible, leaving a strange resemblance to a piece of pastry  on which a huge cookie cutter had  been at work. The holes are now  filled with water, home to small  denizens of the still waters.  There are about 100 permanent  residents on the island and they  do not lack for entertainment.  There are oysters to open, clams  to dig for, beachcombing to keep  you busy, and Silva Bay Resort,  Taylor Bay Lodge and Surf Lodge,  for fraternizing. Gabriola Sands  Provincial Park for picnics and  swimming, is not far from the  Galleries and Twin Beaches offer  you the sunshine on whichever  side of the road the sun happens  to be shining.  Mudge, Decourcy and Link  Island provide protection for  Pylades Channel, or False Narrows as it is sometimes known,  and the waterborne know about  this. Whalebone Beach is worth  combing for whatever the old  time whalers have discarded, and  you may even be lucky enough to  find a whale's tooth.  Gabriola rightfully deserves  its designation. It is truly Queen  of the Islands.  Canada Grade A Beef   Govt. Inspected      (1st. 5 ribsonly)  PRIME RIB ROAST  Ib. $1.59  Govt. Inspected  SAUSAGE MEAT  Ib. 79*  B. C.
