 wwijayiaiM^  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15$ per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Local officials meet  management  Bflb Clotherand Robert McKay are Santas little helpers at the International  er of Foresters' Christmas festivities at the Gibsons Legion on Sunday.  Bob Clothier made a special trip to the coast for this occasion and filled this  role equally as his usual role as the villan inVthe Beachcomber's  Sechelt budget  Sechelt Council was informed  last week that the Gibsons dog  pound will be ready for use by  February 1977. It was suggested  that the council obtain a radio  unit so that they can be in constant touch with the truck.  In other council business,  Alderman Ernie Booth reported  that culverts were being installed  for access to the Sandy Hock  property in preparation for the  (proposed new firehall. Alderman  rrank Lietner advised council  that a caretaker is now in residence at the airport and Aid.  Thompson  told  the  group  that  Dayton & Knight, the engineers  for the new sewer system have  been in contact with the sewer  committee and will be meeting  with the group in the very near  future.  The council also agreed to  follow the Gibsons move and  accept "Indian Trading Dollars"  as legal currency until May 31st.  Discussion of the forthcoming  budget occupied much of the  meeting until it was finally decided to accept a provisional  budget of $452,000. A further  budget of $1,315. was accepted  to finance the Timber Days  festivities.  Metzler rejects  SCRD chairmanship  Acting Sunshine CoastRegionafDistrict Chairman Jim Metzlei^.  informed last week's regular meeting of the SCRD that he  is unwilling to stand for election to the chair on a permanent  basis. Metzler did not elaborate on his reasons for refusing the  position though he did admit that it was at least partially because  of the recent conflicts within the board. It is now expected that  the position will gO to either Area B representative Peter  Hoemberg or Area A representative Jack Paterson.  Acting chairman Metzler was also informed by way of a letter  from Municipal Affairs Minister Hugh Curtis that he was under  consideration for a position on the Board of Directors of the B.C.  Ferry crown corporation. The letter from Curtis was considered  as strictly for the boards own information as the decision to  appoint Metzler to the board of directors would have to be made  at a cabinet level.  L  B.C. Ferries Assistant Traffic Manager Mr. Bouchard is shown trying to convince the  local representatives of the coast the validity of the Ferry cut-backs.  Mayor Labonte could not be present for the meeting between Mr.  Bouchard of B. C. Ferries and local representatives of the community  last Thursday in Gibsons. Ms wife told the Coast News that he has a  suspected broken nose afterbeing hit broadside in his car when leaving  work at Port Mellon. We can only hope that he recovers enough to  enjoy the Christmas holidays.  Alderman Metzler chaired the meeting and began by asking Bouchard the reason for cutting back the 7:40 a.m. and the afternoon  sailing from Horseshoe Bay. Bouchard hedged by holding up a copy  of the Coast News and mumbling something about exaggerations  and that he had received only four letters at his office complaining  about the 5:30 a.m. cancellation. Obviously it had slipped his mind  that he had received at least two telegrams, one from the Gibsons  Harbour Business Association, dealing mainly with the 7:40 cancellation, and a comprehensive night letter from the Concerned Citizens  Association.  The reason for the drop-in  service, Bouchard explained, was  because of the T/t hour shift  and another crew would have to  be hired to carry on the old  schedule.  The chair informed him that  after talking to some of the crews,  he was of the opinion that a number of crew members would  prefer an alternating shift of 6  and 9 hours, and although this  was a union matter, it would be  worthy of investigation.  Peter Reid of the Concerned  Citizens sympathised with the  problems the Ferries were running into in their scheduling, and  asked for the same consideration  in return. Instead of giving the  residents of the coast a "like it  or lump it" service, this feeling  was corroborated by everyone  present - excluding the ferry  representatives. Also to his  knowledge, other public utilities  must give notice of re-scheduling  and it would be appreciated if  Mr. Bouchard could give a commitment to keep us in touch with  what is going on. Mr. Bouchard  didn't give one.  Mr. Edney of Ken's Lucky  Dollar, speaking for the Gibsons  Harbour Business Association,  began by saying that he, too,  was stunned by the lack of consultation between the Ferries  and the community, then went on  to explain the necessity of the  7:40 sailing. Although it was an  exaggeration to say that tomatoes  were rotting before they reached  the shelves, it was a great inconvenience to him, personally,  as a merchant, since on the return trip of. the 7:40 from Horseshoe Bay, transports brought in  his fresh produce. This enabled  him to have fresh vegetables on  the shelves by opening time.  Replying to Bouchard's statement that the 6:45 was the most  popular, he showed that due to  the fact that it coincided with  rush hour, the time saved was  knocked down to half an hour,  into Vancouver. He did say that  the new ferries had better facilities for passenger comfort, but  what good was it if it was not  being used. For example, the  book stands and restaurant  facilites. "I used to spend up to  $6.00 a day on meals until the  food became too bad. There  comes a point where reducing  services does not pay and I urge  you to sit in on local hearings  before making any changes in  policy " said Edney.  Alderman Metzler pointed out  that parking lots in Horseshoe  Bay were charging up to $6.00  a day, and one local had informed  him that it was costing him $600.  a year just for parking alone.  This makes it very tempting to  drive on and avoid the inconvenience of having a car on the  other side and would cause more  over-loads. It should be possible  to give commuters a sticker  which would entitle them to reduced rates.  The Powell River delegation  had several good points. The  former 9:15 a.m. bus has been  cancelled and replaced by one at  7:30, which means that people  must now get up around 6:00a.m.  if they want to go to town.  For security reasons the mail  truck must take the same ferry  every day and with the new schedule it means that he has a two  hour wait for connecting ferries,  this costs $60.00 per day in lost  time.  One representative remembered from being on the Tourist  Commission that there would be  discussions with the commission  before any changes in the sailing  time would be announced.  A safety problem has now  arisen, the "One hour and fifty  minutes easy driving time"  sign at Langdale is now a joke  with the new schedule. To make  connections between Earl's  Cove and Langdale, drivers have  now to shave 30 minutes off this  "easy driving time" which necessitates passing on solid lines and  being forced into speeding.  A meeting was arranged between the Concerned Citizens  Association and Mr. Bouchard in  Victoria, but on speaking with  some of the members, they seem  to feel that they received no satisfaction at Thursdays meeting and  would get no further with another, and that a detailed letter  would serve the same purpose.  The attitude of the Ferry  management was summed up  best by a tongue in' cheek comment, by Peter Hoemberg, "We  could solve all the problems of  bad connections between Earls  Cove and Langdale by cutting out  some Saltry Bay to Earls Cove  fe,rries!"    '  Lockstead looks  toward 1977  For many British Columbians,  the beginning of this new year is a  time, of anxiety and hardship.  At a time when we should be able  to reflect on the accomplishments  ofthe past and consider our goals  for the future, there is a feeling  of frustration and anger throughout the province.  In the riding of Mackenzie,  this is the general feeling with  which we face this new year.  Unemployment is increasing  rapidly and the winter lay-offs  in the forestry industry suggest  a hard year ahead. It is estimated  that by June there will be an additional 42,000 British Columbians looking for work. Many of  these will be residents of the  coastal communities which are  part of the Mackenzie riding.  Even now there are few residents  of the riding whom I have met  in my travels who are jnot unemployed or do not have a member  of their family looking for work.  For those who are not directly  affected by this critical unemployment problem, the chaos which  exists in the transportation systems is perhaps the major source  of frustration. Ocean Falls, Bella  Bella and Bella Coola are communities who are having to pay a  terribly high price for the ignorance and arrogance of the Social  Credit government in handling  coastal shipping. In the last  year of the old Social Credit  government in 1972, the residents  of Ocean Falls were faced with  the prospect that their commu nity  would be closed down as a result  of inaction by the government.  Now in the first year of the new  Social   Credit   government   this  community is faced with death  by strangulation, its vital links  with :tbe lower coast being cut  off because the present government simply does not care.  Meanwhile, the cost of living  is rising continually, the Social  Credit government having completely failed to halt inflation.  Indeed, looking back on the past  year, it is clear that the policies  of this government have directly,  contributed to inflation as personal income tax, sales tax and  taxes on small businesses have  been increased, ferry rates have  been doubled, gas and electric  rates have risen, indeed, the  worst price gouging that is going  on in British Columbia today is  going on in the Parliament  Buildings in Victoria. As a final  cruel twist to a >ear of harsh  government, the Education Minister has announced that property  taxes for schools are going to  soar next year.  Faced with the many harsh  realities of life in this province  today, the people of British  Columbia are looking for hope.  As your Member of the Legislature I want to assure you that I  shall continue to fight against  harsh and regressive measures  of the Social Credit government  in the years ahead. At the same  time, 1 shall support and encourage measures of this government  or any other that will return  spending power to working  people, that will guarantee  security to those who create the  wealth of this province through  their labour and restore the integrity of community life.

Christmas  By the time the next edition of the  Coast News reaches your mailbox Christmas and the New Year's celebrations will  have come and gone.  By January 1st. we will be worried  about how much we spent on the luxuries  of Christmas, how much we regret the  hangover from the night before and how  many ofthe kids new CHristmas presents  are already destined for repair. But,  before we get carried away with the  Scrooge that is within us all, we must  remember what Christmas is really all  about.  Christmas should be the time for  telling those you care about that they are  still important to you, Christmas should  be the time for sorting out all those old  anxieties and animosities that have  festered within us all year, Christmas  should be the time to let you r imagination  run away with thebelief that just perhaps  it is possible to create a world where all  men can live in peace and achieve the  quality of life they desire.  In other words Christmas should be the  time for looking into the future and  dreaming of what we can do for ourselves  and our fellow man.  As we enter the new year we have  many problems and challenges facing us  both on a local and a more worldly level.  The only way we will ever solve these  dilemmas is by carrying the Christmas  spirit throughout the rest of the calender  year.  Sechelt  The ineffectiveness of the Sechelt  bureaucracy has once again become the  question.  It all started when Ccc^t News, located  in the Village of Gibsons I night add,  received a demand from the Village of  Sechelt for $20.00. The purpose being  to secure for the said operation, a licence  to operate within Sechelt for the upcoming year. Upon further investigation  it was discovered that our competition  located in the Village of Sechelt, were not  required to pay a similar license for the  purpose of operating within the Village  of Gibsons.  The management of the Coast News  felt that somehow this was not quite  cricket and therefore something should  be done to correct the situation. Sechelt  Village Clerk Tom Wood was advised of  the situation and agreed that a decision  must be made.  Now, two weeks later, we have received a "second notice" of overdue  license.  Considering that the vast majority  of the number of copies of the Coast  News distributed in the Sechelt area  are merely given away free, the point  seems ludicrous. Wood used the logic  that the Sun and the Province were  required to take out business licenses.  I wonder if MacLeans, Cosmopolitan,  Time, Newsweek and Playboy are also  lining the coffers of the Sechelt chambers.  . .from the files of Coast News  5YEARS AGO  Gibsons O.A.P.O. held a very successful Christmas party at the #109 Legion.  76 members and many guests showed  up plus a surprise appearance of Santa.  Trumpeter Swans have made their  home in the Gibsons area for the Christmas season.  10 YEARS AGO  Kinsmen Park (Dougal Park) was  turned over to Gibsons Council by the  Anglican New Westminster synod as  a public park.  Port Mellon Community Association  donated $3,500 towards Gibsons Centennial Pool Fund.  15 YEARS AGO  Boy Scouts of the First Gibsons troop  entertained pensioners at their annual  Christmas dinner.  The Shell tanker in boisterous weather  caused damage to the breakwater while  striving to dock.  25 YEARS AGO  A 20 m.p.h. speed limit was set by  council for Gibsons Village.  Sechelt Motor Transport announces  the proposed construction of a depot in  Sechelt Village.  Bad road conditions are holding up  the $35,000. impovement to the B. C.  Telephone system from Sechelt to Pender  Harbour.  25 YEARS AGO  Gibsons water bylaw passed with 162  for and 45 against, calling for an expenditure of $50,000.  A severe storm downed power lines  and created much floating debris as the  result of high winds and strongtides.  The Gilmour brothers of Sechelt have  announced the proposed sale of their  timber mill.  30 YEARS AGO  A street light appears in Gibsons.  It is hoped that this novelty will become  a permanent structure.  Appeal of the B. C. Power Commission  against the valuation of $5,712,663.  placed against 3 utility companies taken  over by the commission will be heard  before Mr. JusticeA. Harper.  Re-print...Re-print...Re-print...Re-prin  WHERE DOES IT STOP?  The following was an editorial  printed in the Coast News on  January 22,1959.  The rise in living costs continues. It may be gradual but it  is there nevertheless. The difference between December of  1957 and December of 1958 is  3.1 points up, according to the  Dominion Bureau of Statistics  Consumer Price Index.  The total index was 123.1 at  December 1957 and 126.2 at  December of 1958. A breakdown  of the increase in the year between December of 1957 and  December of 1958 reveals this:  Food, 118.8 to 122.2, up 3.4  Shelter, 136.7to 139.9, up 3.2  Clothing, 109.9 to 110.5, up 0.6  Household operation, 120.6 to  122.0, up 1.4  Other commodities and services, 128.4 to 133.4, up 5.0.  Since December the Coast  News has received new pricings  from paper manufacturers '-and  distributors which show a five  percent increase. Our ink supplier has also informed us of an  increase in price.  The present owners of the  Coast News have been in business over four years and in that  period there have been three  five percent increases in the purchases of paper, envelopes and  such like. Naturally we have to  pass the increase on to our customers because we have not yet  resorted to printing money.  When will the spiralling stop?  Who will stop it? How can it be  stopped? These are questions  which if one had the answer they  could have no worries about the  future.  In the meantime many labor  unions have escalator clauses  in existing contracts which call  for further wage increase over  the next two years.  So if you want to hedge on  inflation, buy real estate or  diamonds. Running a business  these days reminds one of a  lobster. It is green when put into  a pressure cooker and it comes  out red. The small businessman  can see more red on his bank  statement. His business is the  pressure cooker.  Letters to the Editor  Gift of Hope  Editor:  I would like to take this chance  to thank your readers for their  generous response to our Gift  of Hope Program.  The high caliber of gifts and  generous cash donations which  were the result of co-operation of  Old Age Pension groups, local  banks and the Lions Cub, is  greatly appreciated.  It is heart-warming to us to  know that some people still feel  it is more blessed to give than to  receive and you can be certain  that your generosity will be  greatly appreciated by the  patients, particularly by those  who have lost contact with family  and friends and who otherwise  would receive no gift at all.  Thank you again for your  thoughrfulness towards the mentally ill and please accept our  best wishes for the holiday season  and the coming year.  Margaret Lowther  Co-ordinator of Volu nteers  Riverview Hosp hal  Library  Editor:  I strongly resent your editorial  in the Coast News of December  14 relating to the Gibson's Public  Library. Since you are, I believe,  a newcomer to this area, you may  not know that the present library  is a new building, and not likely  to    need    replacement.        The  location is quite central, as easy  of access from the Upper Village  as from the Lower, and seems to  be well patronized by both young  and old.    It is fully staffed, as  you put it, by a group of devoted  ladies who give freely of their  time and patience in rain or shine,  hot  weather  or  cold,   and   are  always   courteous   and  helpful;  any   suggestion   that   a   school  library would be better served  is ridiculous.    In fact, from my  recollection the opposite would  be true.    We pay a yearly subscription to the library, and I for  one would object to being lumped  in with a lot of adolescents who,  however nice they may be personally, are en masse apt to be  rude and over-assertive.    I am  sure they, too, would rather have  their own library where they can  study or read in peace without  intrusion of a lot of adults.   Let  us keep the status in quo, and let  the school look after their own  affairs.  E R. East  Not biased  Editor:  In last week's front page article  about a meeting of the Gibsons  Harbour Business Association,  your reporter mentioned the remarks I made at the meeting.  Although I appreciate his kind  ness in referring to them as "a  fine oration", I must disagree  with his final comment that "it  was   marred   by   his   (i.e.   mv)  bias against the Gibsons Council".  It is true that I was critical of  the council. I stated my feeling  that its policies regarding the  location of commercial enterprises in the village have been  unfortunate for the village, and  particularly for the harbour business area. However, I question  whether this implies that I am  biased.  My dictionary suggests that a  bias is a prejudice or predisposition, usually unfair. In fact, far  from being predisposed towards  the council, I had based my remarks upon the observed results  of its actions. Neither do I feel  that I spoke unfairly, as I did not  suggest that the council had  acted in bad faith, as I am sure  that the councillors intended their  policies to further the best interest of the village community, nor  did I make any general criticisms  ofthe council. I simply expressed  doubts about the wisdom of certain of council'sactions.  I believe that a measure of  criticism of gwemment is a  symptom of a healthy community,  and I am disappointed that your  reporter felt that the hem to  report was that someone had  dared to question Gibsons council. It might have been more  useful to consider the validity of  the questions raised.  Adrian Stott  Narrow minded  Editor:  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District Board members are very  narrow minded when it comes to  providing the community, with  facilities for entertaining our  youth. An additional S5.50 per  regional taxpayer is a small price  to pay when you consider one  youngster who might not have  passed through the judicial system if there had been some recreation provided for him by his  community.  I am speaking specifically of  the new proposed Joint Community Use of School Facilities in  the Pender Harbour School which  was 'delayed' at the last SCRD  meeting.  There is absolutely nothing  for the youth of Pender Harbour  and Halfmoon Bay to do nor is  there anywhere a continuing  education program can be organized for the local residents, young  or old. Ask the teachers. Ask  the youth. The living community  is stagnating.  Mr. Hoemberg and Mr. Paterson should be commended for  their efforts in revitilizing the  populace and should be given  as much support possible.  Name withheld by request  Spectacles  Editor:  On behalf of the Gibsons Lions  Club we would like to extend our  sincere thanks to all who contributed discarded spectacles  during our recent drive, using  boxes in local banks and the  credit union.  The boxes have now been removed, and we can forward your  contributions. For your information they go to the CNIB in Vancouver, via Burrard Lions Club.  The CNIB send them to an organization in Calgary called "Operation Eyesight", who send them to  distribution centres in underdeveloped countries, where qualified persons make sure that de  fects  requiring  glasses can  be  properly corrected.  Once more, our hearty thanks.  Don't throw out your old glasses,  we will have another drive in  the near future. Watch for it.  Gibsons Lions Club  Sight Conservation Committee  Jack White  Janet McDonald  Thank you  Editor:  The Gibsons Lions Club would  like to express their appreciation  to the Coast News for excellent  coverage     of    Lions    activities  throughout the whole of this year.  Also, we wish to thank all  those people who supported Lions  projects during 1976. It has been  the excellent support of everyone  which made it possible to put on  our annual Christmas Dinner for  senior citizens. Many thanks to  the Gibsons Legion and their  Ladies Auxiliary and to those who  supplied the entertainment.  To everyone who helped the  Gibsons Lions Club make 1976  such a successful jear ^ye wish  Very   Merry   Christmas   and  Happy and Successful New-Year.  I  Joe Kampman  Resident  Wally Langdale  Secretary  Twas the night before....  Twas the night before Christmas  when all through the house,  not a creature was stirring,  not even a mouse.  The stockings were hung  by th e chimney with care,  in the hope that St. Nicholas  soon would be there.  The children were nestled  all snug in their beds,  while visions of sugar plums  danced in their heads.  And mom in kerchief  and I in my cap  had just settled down  for a long winter's nap  when out on the lawn there  arouse such a clatter,  I sprang from the bed  to see what was the matter.  Away to the window  I flew like a flash,  tore open the shutter  and threw up the sash.  The moon on the crest  of the new fallen snow  through the luster of midday  to objects below.  When what to my wondering eyes  should appear,  but a miniatu re sleigh  and eight tiny reindeer.  The little old driver,  so lively and quick.  I knew in a moment  this must be St. Nick!  More rapid than eagles  his coursers they came  andhewhistled and shouted,  and called them by name.  Now Dasher, now Dancer, % *"  Now Prancer and Vixen,  On Comet, On Cupid,  On Donner and Blitzen!  To the top of the porch  to the top of the wall.  Now dash away, dash away!  Dash away all!  As dry leaves that before  the wild hurricane fly,  when they met with an obstacle  mount to the sky.  So up to the house-top  the coursers they flew,  with sleigh full of toys,  and St. Nicholas too.  And then in a twinkling  I heard on the roof,  the prancing and pawing  of each little hoof.  As I drew in my head  and was turning around,  down the chimney  St. Nicholas came with a bound!  He was dressed all in fur  from his head to his foot  and his clothes were all tarnished  with ashes and soot.  Abundle of toys  he had slung on his back,  and he looked like a peddler  just opening his pack.  His eyes how they twinkled,  his dimple how merry,  his cheeks were like roses,  and his nose like a cherry.  His droll little mouth  was drawn up like a bow  and the beard on his chin  was as white as the snow.  The stump of the pipe  he held tight in his teeth,  and the smoke it encircled  his head like a wreath.  He had a broad smile  and a round little belly,  that shook when he laughed,  like a bowl full of jelly!  He was chubby and plump,  a right jolly old elf,  and I laughed when I saw him,  in spite of myself.  With a wink of his eye  and a twist of his head,  soon gave me to know  I had nothing to dread.  He spoke not a word,  but went straight to his work,  and filled all the stockings  then turned with a jerk  and laying his fingers  aside of his nose,  and giving a nod  up the chimney he rose.  He sprang to his sleigh,  to his team gave a whistle,  and away they all flew,  like the down of a thistle!  But I heard him exclaim  ere he drove out of sight,  HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL  AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!  i  ��� Coast News, December 21,1976.  God's  gift  t  For many tired Christmas  shoppers, even in our present  affluent society, the mad shopping spree of finding and sending  out Christmas gifts, with the  eventual monetary reckoning in  the New Year, is more of a heartache than a pleasurable experience.  If we would take a few moments to still the tumult of our  thoughts and think back to the  origin of this Christmas giving,  we can proceed with gratitude,  calm thinking, and pleasure.  Let us include with our material  gifts a spiritual gift, an uplifting  thought that can be shared and  treasured long after the material  is forgotten. There is no monetary reckoning with this spiritual  gift, and the only returns are  love and kind memories. When  you give a present, the receiver  has it and you haven't, but when  you give an uplifting thought,  you both share it and it is spontaneously multiplied.  In the words of a lovely hymn,  "AH perfect gifts are from above,  and all our blessings show...  The amplitude of God's dear  love which every heart may  know".  Carrying gifts to the Bethlehem  Babe by the wisemen of old was  not a chore, it was a pleasureable  experience; a gift of love and  appreciation to one they had  never seen before, but to whom  their spiritual consciousness  revealed would be the Word of  God made manifest in the flesh;  the man Christ Jesus. In our  giving then, let us think back to  hose wisemen of old and let  our giving be emblematical of  the spiritual thought that motivated those men to follow the  star with gifts to the Behtlehem  Babe.  Let us not forget the origins  of Christmas. Let it not become  merely a traditional time to salve  our consciences with mere mer-  rimaking and needless gift  giving.  Mary   Baker  Eddy,   the   discoverer and founder of Christian  Science,   wrote   in   Miscellany,  "Christmas to me is the reminder  of God's great gift - His spiritual  idea,   man   and   the   universe-  a gift which so transcends mortal,  material, sensual giving that the  merriment,      mad      ambition,  rivalry, and ritual of our common  ���Christmas  seem  a mockery  in  mimicry of the real worship in  commemoration      of      Christ's  coming".

Happy reading everyone I  Teenage fitness  The Sunshine Coast Fitness  service will be ready in the New  Year to begin a comprehensive  program for the whole peninsula.  Activities will range from lunch  hour exercise in Sechelt, to roller  skating at Pender Harbour. The  staff responsible for the program  is as follows: Robi Peters is in  the Pender harbour area, centering her attention on teenagers.  Before joining the Fitness Service, Robi was already very much  involved in organizing activities  and helping out with programs.  She.has a head start by being  aware of the need in her area.  Even after living in Pender Harbour 14 years, Robi feels there  are still many things teenagers  may want that she is unaware  of.

Mrs. Valerie Wilson, who is the Lower Mainland  Area Representative of the B.C.  H.A.A., was warmly welcomed  by the 55 members who were in  attendance.  President Mrs. Betty Monk,  drew attention to the need of  more knitted baby dothes, woollen toys, shawls, etc. for the Gift  Shop in the Hospital lobby.  Anyone who can help in this work  should leave the item at the gift  shop.  The members unanimously  voted a sincere thank you to Mrs.  Dorothy Carter for her years of  work as Volunteer Chairman.  Mrs. Humm announced that on  January 28th a bridge party will  be held in St. Hilda's Hall. Further particulars will be forthcoming.  A number of members offered  to assist Mrs. Eggins at the  Christmas party for the Extended  Care patients.  Following the adjournment of  the monthly meeting, the annual  meeting was held. Yearly reports  from all committees were read  and filed. Total hours of service  to the patients by the auxiliaries  amounted to 4303 hours. Particular appreciation was expressed to  the Thrift Shop workers for their  contribution which exceeded  all previous records.  Mrs. Monk presented Mrs.  Humm with the auxiliary pin for  her outstanding service as a  member ofthe Sechelt Auxiliary.  Her enthusiasm and dedication  make her a most deserving recipient of our appreciation.  At the close of the business  session and election and installation of officers for the coming  term was held.

This  poses a problem for many plant  owners who have too many plants  to 'lend" a few to a neighbour to  care for in their absence. The  bathroom becomes an excellent  place to turn into a nursery for  plants.  Initially, gather together the  most delicate and moisture loving  plants. Place these plants in the  bathtub, the tallest ones to the  wall and the shortest ones to  the front. You'll need a sheet  of plastic measuring 4 inches  longer than the length of your  tub and at least twice the width.  With strong paper weights or  moisture resistant tape secure the  plastic sheet along the edge of  the tub. The other long edge of  the plastic can then be taped to  the far wall over the plants. This  creates a hothouse atmosphere  with a high level of humidity  within the 'tent'. The condensation forming on the inside walls  of the plastic will keep the plants  inside watered for the duration  of your absence. If the bathroom  has only a minimum amount of  natural light, it may be necessary  to leave the overhead light on  until you return.  The other hardier plants may  be grouped together around the  bathroom. Cactus and succulents  can be left for up to a month without watering, in a moderately  sunny location, free of drafts.  Plants such as philodendron  and century plants should be  grouped together either in the  bathroom sink or in a pebble  filled tray.    If using a tray it  CHRISTMAS GREETINGS TO ALL  OURFRIENDS--  From Pam and Ray Boothroyd and  Yvonne Hovden  should be filled with water  up to the level of the pebbles.  If any of your plants are flowering at the time of your departure  it would be advisable to either  clip the flowers and put the plant  in the tub or give it to a neighbour  to 'babysit' until you return.  For taller plants that won't  fit in your bathtub, ceramic 'plant  watchers' can be purchased at  almost any plant store. These  are ceramic figures hollowed out  which hold up to 2 cups of water.  The 'plant watcher' secretes  measured amounts of water for  an extended period of time.  Elves  hampers  The Sunshine Coast Elves  Club have been busy making sure  that no one is forgotten this  Christmas.  The ambitious little elves have  packed and distributed a total  of 107 hampers with a total of  2710 food items contained. A  further bonanza gift of 527 toys  have also been distributed.  The hampers include such traditional Christmas items as hams,  turkeys, Christmas cake and  vegetables as well as such necessities as fruit, babyfood and milk.  The hampers have already been  delivered to needy families from  Port Mellon right through to  Egmont.  The club wish to extend their  sincerest thanks to all the local  businessmen and personal contributors who helped to make this  years campaign so successful.  GUS  Dec. 26, 27, 28, 29.

Sum  The large audience at last  Thursday (Dec. 16th) night's  performance of "Mr. Scrooge"  were treated to an exuberant  performance. Surely what stands  out in this co-operative production by The Driftwood Players  and Elphinstone High School was  its high spirited cast. Some roles  had that very personal touch  which highlighted the play immeasurable. Even small supporting parts exhibited flair.  Take the role of the Ghost of  Christmas Present as interpreted  by Ian Corrance. Instead of portraying the traditional benevolent  spirit we're all familiar with, Ian  took advantage of the cantankerous side of his nature to present  us with an amusingly wry, vindictive ghost. Aided with a tall  walking stick and fully dressed  in Scottish Highlands regalia,  this Ghost of Christmas Present  gleefully and sarcastically  nudged at Scrooge's bitter conceit.  Such inventiveness was not  alone. Marley's ghost, played by  Terry Karkabe, was a most  haunting creature. With a goul-  ish chalky face, accented by red,  sleepless eye-scckets, this Marley  dragged his chains with a chilling  presence. His strong wailful  voice and contorted stupor  shrewdly depicted the ghastly  remorse of Scrooge's forlorn  partner.  What good fortune to have had  the vocal talents of Mavis Christmas and Joan Robb for this gala  occasion! Mavis, who played an  endearing Mrs. Cratchitt, roused  her family into singing a contemptuous yet rhythmic number  denouncing that tightwad in  question:  "Who else will rob a blind man  blind, And take away his walking  stick as well?   Who's fonder of  his money than 1 am of you?  Mr. Scrooge!"  Joan Robb as young Scrooge's  Isabel and Alexis Davison as Mrs.  Fezziwig assessed the pros and  cons of togetherness in a buoyant,  philosophic number entitled  "Marriage is....".  Although the vocal strength  of the chorus numbers was inconsistent, certain ones were  enthusiastic enough to feature  the seasonal atmosphere. Mr.  Fezziwig's (George Matthews)  jovial direction on "Ding Dong  Merrily on High" was particularly strong and festive. Credit  must be extended to Adrian  Stott, not only for his piano accompaniment on all the numbers,  but also for the clever adaptation  in Sharkey's song, "I'm a perfectly honest man" to the tune of  the opera Carmen.  The impact of certain scenes  was lost through some lighting  slips, but the fine, Olde England  sets and exacting period costumes greatly inspired in propelling the show's star antagonist;  Mr. Scrooge. Geoff Madoc-  Jones' rendition of the old penny-  pincher has to be hailed as first  class. His bountiful repertoire  ranged from vile crustiness to  skippy daffness. His energy was  never at a lost for animated  frowns, miserly cringes or zesty  giddiness. Why the snivelling  wretch was on cue everytime!  Mr. Madoc-Jones' portrayal of  Scrooge's nature was never so  bitter that you couldn't help but  identify with the actor's underlining parody and self-effacement. He was having fun with  his role. We all shared in his  frolic.  Ken Dalgleish's production  was of a keen calibre. The community surely must welcome his  theatre group's future endeavours.  Health  clinic  The Pender Harbour and Area  Health clinic auxiliary wish to  thank everyone for baking and  gifts etc. which made our December 4th event a great success.

It  featured the brass band and  people of a Canadian town, a  pleasant change from the wildlife documentaries.  A unique competition was  held to select a permanent home  for this news column. Out of the  many entries submitted, the two  considered most descriptive were  put to a general ballot resulting  in the following preference:  1. "Happy Horizons" submitted by Mrs. Edith Walton.  2. "News Horizons" by Mr.  Jim Ironside.  Close behind were "The  Creekers" (or Creakers?), and  "Happy Gang" which indeed  we are. Under this title then, the  column will keep the Coast  residents informed as to our role  in the general area; who we are;  where we are; and the services  we provide in social and recreational activities for the "over  fifties" in the local community  of Roberts Creek.  A hearty vote of thanks is  extended to the Royal Canadian  Legion, Branch #219 for their  generous donation of $200.00  to the good and welfare of our  New Horizons group. Such support from another community  group to the seniors is a particularly encouraging gesture of good  will.  Our "Get Well" wishes are  extended to Mr. Cliff Gilker  presently in St. Mary's Hospital,  and Dr. R. S. Woodsworth who  is re-cpuperating at home. We  hope to see you both back in  action in the near future.  Our monthly birthday cake  was shared by five members:  Mrs. Madeline Grose, Mrs. Gwen  Hicks, Mrs. Betty Merrick, Mrs.  Downes, and Mr. Bill Grose, our  co-ordinator. During the candle  blowing and cake cutting ceremonies, the group sang "Happy  Birthday".  All concerned are advised that  the meetings of Mondays Dec.  27th and Jan. 3rd. 1977 are suspended due to the month end  festivities but we will be back in  action on Monday, January 10th,  for another season of fellowship  and fun.  Extracts from a recent "Silver  Threads" magazine read: "The  race horse is the only animal  that can take thousands of people  for a ride at the same time"  and "In just a few short weeks  you'll find out how much Santa  charges to make house calls."

Well, sir, a while back I done a  littel story fer the Back Porch --  but it seems like under ev'ry  story there's anuther - an anuth-  er.  You peels off one, jest like the  skin of an onion, an there's  anuther waitin', jest below -  jest like Pierre the Prolific is  findin' out with sum of the shenanigans his cabinet ministers  have got themselves tangled up  in.  Anyways, that littel story had  to do with Harpo Marx - one of  the finest harpists there wus  arount - an how he never did  get arount tofiggerin' out a single  note of music.  Seems like he set a few records-  like makin' a zillion bucks, play in'  in movies with nuthin' much more  than a crumpled top hat; a red  wig...an a harp.  Like the story said, Harpo set  a few other records, too. Like,  f'rinstance, spendin' five years  in a New York primary school...  all  of 'em  in  the same  grade!  Then, too, he got trapped with  an urge fer High Education. He  spend Ten Dollars fer a half  hour with a Maestro of the Metropolitan Opera...durin' wich  time the Maestro found out a  helluva lot of tricks that wusn't  in the books. An Harpo figgered  it wus a helluva lot cheaper,  jest to go back where he cum frum  and play the harp the way he had  figgered out!  Well, sir, the way things is  goin' lately - wot with Ayrabs  blowin' up airyplanes rite an left  an the Guvmint findin' it's a  helluva job straightenin' things  out by countin' on their fingers,  becus they are all thumbs, folks  sorta get desperate.  F'rinstance, folks can burn  punk sticks an candles; they can  say Hail Mary's an count beads  an send prayers up on clouds of  incense until the Good Lord  starts chokin' an wondering  where the hell all the pollushun  is comin' frum....but you shur as  hell can't ignore the fact the Al  mighty has a message there fer  everybody.  Like, f'rinstance, Harpo Marx.  Y'see, he had been playin'  that there harp fer quite a wile,  but she wus a helluva job reach in'  the strings sumtimes. There wus  these arpeggios an things wot he  had to sorta improvise his way  arount. Like I sed, later they wus  gonna drive the maestro at the  Metroplitan nuts...becus nobody  had ever played a harp like that  before!  Anyways, Harpo took a walk  one day an sorta stumbled on this  here place where they had a picture of an Angel, playin' the harp.  It wus done real purty - an the  Angel had a halo of gold.  But wot really interested Harpo  wus the fact that the Angel wus  restin' the harp sorta diffrunt.  Y'see, folks, Harpo had become one of the greatest harpists  the world has ever knowd -  restin' the harp on the wrong  shoulder!  �� The Perfect Gift for Christmas e  NDP Bookstore  in Gibsons Landing  a Good selection of children's books  ��� Logging and Forestry  ��� Canadiana  ��� B.

Mule scores  Where but in a Walt Disney  movie would there be a mule who  kicks field goals? For the family,  "Gus" is ideal fun and boasts  an unusually large cast of familiar  names and faces. Making their  Disney debuts are Edward Asner  and Gary Grimes. They join  regulars Don Knotts and Tim  Conway, who oddly are not  teamed here, Tom Bosley and  Liberty Williams in the main  roles. Title part is played by  a mule.  Screen play by Arthur Alsberg  and Don Nelson, based on a story  by Ted Key, uses the premise  that National Football League  rules do not eliminate the possibility of a non-human player.  Director Vincent McEveety and  the energetic cast make the most  of this situation and there are  many funny moments. A lengthy  supermarket sequence is pure  slapstick and tends to indicate  that a mule on the loose is nothing  out of the ordinary. Don't miss it!

There has been such a demand  for tickets that it has snowballed  out of all proportions. I regret  to say that we can only accomodate 130 people, and Branch #38  members with a 1976 membership card will be given preference. I am extremely sorry about  all this but as I have said, we  cannot accomodate any more.  Tickets will be on sale at Harmony Hall on Wednesday of next  week, December 22nd. To get  your tickets be sure to bring your  1976 membership card for positive identification, as we don't  want to have any foul-ups and  dissapointed members, it will be  a matter of first come, first  served and no tickets will be  issued to anyone who does not  present themselves at the hall.  Hopefully we will have more  chairs during the coming year  and trust that "we will be able to  accomodate more for parties  during 1977.

Winner of the hand hooked wool rug  was Bea Swanson of Sechelt,  and the patchwork hooked rug  was Judy Mathon, also of Sechelt.  The purpose of the raffle was  to raise money for the Community  Resource Society's many projects. While the society requires  funds to operate its services, new  members are sought to assist  the society in its work.  Membership may be obtained  at the office in Sechelt above the  Credit Union.

But that is the way the ball  bounces and 1 am sorry to have to  advise you of this. We are doing  our best to accomodate as many  as possible but 130 is the limit  we can take. I am sorry we cannot accept any guests unless  there are tickets left over, which I  doubt very much, but as I hope  you realize, we have to look after  our own members first, as it is  them who have donated time and  money to get the hall built and  I really think they should be the  first to receive consideration.  Dinner will be served at 8:00  p.m. so all you members attending please bring along your  casseroles or whatever you wish  to bring. Our Convenors will  appreciate anything you wish to  bring, they are working very haid  to make this party a success and  I am sure it will be, so members, I  urge you to come along and help  out on this occasion as they need  your help. If you would like to  phone re: the party, contact Eva  Oliver at 886-2351.  The hours for the ticket sales  will be between 1:00 - 4:00 p.m  Wednesday December 22nd at  Harmony Hall.

Local bowler rolls a 400 game  All the Tetrahedron Ski Club  needs now is snow! The facilities  are adequate and the club is  negotiating with a logging company to keep the road plowed  so you'll be able to drive with  chains and park one mile from  an 8' x 40' trailer which is parked  at the 2,200 foot level of Mount  Elphinstone. From this point  you can wind your way, by alternate routes, to a shake and log  cabin at the 3,800 foot level.  You can cross country ski for  seven miles on some of the most  beautiful alpine terrain in the  world, and enjoy the breathtaking  view from atop Mt. Elphinstone.  The club feels that 100 miles  of cross country trails could  easily be made by using the  existing old logging roads. Members are active year round.  In the summer they alternate  their weekends, between work  parties up the mountain, canoeing and picnic parties. Last summer they canoed from Tuwanek  to Snake Bay Beach, Halfmoon  Bay to Secret Cove and on Saginaw Lake.   The person who has  the most knowledge of the area  designates a spot where they  all meet to picnic.  For basic ski equipment cost,  some of the chain stores supply  a package deal which includes  skis, bindings, pole and boots  from $80.00 to $190.00.  While staunch members keep  a close eye on snow conditions  up the mountain, you might be  interested in knowing how to  join the club, or you might like  to try it out to see if skiing is your  forte, you're welcome to join in  on a weekend excursion.  To join the Tetrahedron Ski  Club, meetings are held at the  Roberts Creek Elementary School  the first Thursday of every month  at 8:00 p.m., or you can phone  Stan Anderson at 885-2385.  400 Club  The winner this week of the  Lions 400 Club draw is Robert  Latham of Gibsons. Mr. Latham  will receive $100.00, just in time  for last minute Christmas shopping.  For some reason I've been  missing Bonnie MScConnell's  300 games this year. Two weeks  ago she rolled a 303 single in  the Classic League and I missed  it! Last week she made sure  that I wouldn't miss her game by  rolling a 401 single in the Wed.  Coffee League. Bonnie started  with a spare, had 8 straight  strikes, spared a corner pin in  the tenth and took 13 pins on her  last ball. To roll a 300 game  is tremendous, to roll a 400 game  is something special. So congratulations again Bonnie for a  real nice game from all us 'Bowlers'.  In the Classic League last  week Bonnie rolled a 316 single,  Freeman Reynolds had a 308  single and Gwen Edmonds came  through with a 333 single and was  high lady with a 4 game total  of 992.  In the Gibsons 'A' League,  Paddy Richardson rolled a 308  single, Romy Talento had a 300  single and in a rolloff for the  Phuntastique League, Orbita  delos Santos had a 301 single.  In the  Y.B.C.  Major League  Sunday night, Don Slack rolled  a single game of 346.  As I said before, the scores  just keep getting better and as  the leagues are finishing off the  year with parties this will be the  last report until next years, so  Merry Christmas from all of us  to all of you.

Coast News, December 21,1976.  by John K. Mason  The Quire of Kootenay West  A Biography of Bert Herridge by  Maurice Hodgson, Hancock  House Publisers, Saanichton.  229 pages. Price:  $12.95.  Hancock House has included  a Preface by John D. Diefen-  baker. Now this is very interesting: I always had the idea that  Mr. Diefenbaker's middle name  was George. I don't like nitpicking, but Hancock loses thirty  points.  Kidding aside, this is a solidly  effective biography of a much-  loved Kootenay politician.  Maurice Hodgson has performed  a valuable duty in this interestingly written biography which is  also an evocation of Kootenay  West in the early Twentieth  Century.  Maurice Hodgson taught at  West Kootenay's Selkirk College  for several years. During this  time, he developed a close friendship with Bert Herridge (until  the "Squire" died in 1972).  The author now teaches at Douglas College, is working on a biography of the 19th century explorer Admiral, Sir Edward  Belcher (with the assistance of a  Killam Memorial Scholarship).  Alligator Pie Poems by Dennis  Lee, 64 pages. Pictures by Frank  Newfeld. Price: $3.95. Mac-  millans Canada, Toronto.  For diminutive citizens. The  poems are colloquial and catchy,  right out of our current and historical Canadian environment.  The pictures - in attractive  colour - are sprightly and calculated to wring laughter from small  throats.  Mouse Woman & The Vanished Princesses by Christie Harris.  155 pages, Illustrated (stunningly!) by Douglas Tait. Price:  $7.95.  It's axiomatic that, in books  for the Little People, the pictures  go a long way to either making  or breaking. Considering Douglas Tait's superb black and white  drawings, I would say that  Christie Harris' Mouse Woman &  The Vanished Princesses is off  to a flying start.  Supernatural beings called  Narnuks roamed the Northwest  coast wilderness. One of the  smallest - and most difficult  to get along with - was a character called Mouse Woman. She  specialized in being a stickler for  proper mischevious behaviour.  Which was odd in itself, for  narnauks Gike the god, Loki of  Scandanavian myth) often tried  to trick humans and steal them  away. And most often of all,  young princesses!  This book details how certain  princesses were lured away  by such varied creatures as a  bear, a magic plume, gigantic  snails, and even the owner of  a magic hat.  Mouse Woman never has an  easy time of it. Her skill is  tried to the breaking-point at  times. But all is at last made  equal. And that was what she  was really after.  Mouse Woman is sometimes a  mouse, sometimes a small grandmother. However, she is always  enterprising, sympathetic and --  in a surprisingly nice way, very,  very proper.  Separation by Richard Rohmer.  240 pages. McClelland & Stewart  Toronto. Price:$10.35.  Richard Rohmer, the author  of Separation - the latest novel  about Quebec separating from  Canada - is a successful lawyer,  an aviator, an inventor (we are  not informed of what) and an  Arctic specialist (his so-called  North Mid-Canada Green Belt  theory attracted quite a bit of  attention a few years back).  His previous novels. Ultimatum, Exoneration and Exodus/  UK, have been what is euphemistically called "bestsellers" in  Canada (I believe that means a  book which has sold 20,000 -  30,000 hardback copies). And  with these novels, Mr. Rohmer's  legend has been growing like a  snowslide careening down a  mountainside.  For, Richard Rohmer seems to  be one of the few writers in  this, or any other country, to  write successful "novels" without the slightest discernible  ability to create anything but  cardboard characters. He can  contrive timely and exciting plot  situations, for example: Separation involves, among other  things, what happens when the  government of Quebec decides  to separate; how the assassination of a major Arab leader by a  beautiful PLO terrorist affects  the course of public affairs in  Britain and Canada (can't you  just see the film possibilities  for the likes of an Otto Premin-  ger?) and the implications of a  dramatic British election in the  face of worldwide political and  economic crises.  Pardon me if I'm wrong, but  I've always had this strange idea  that a novel -- even a 'thriller'  involves the consequences ort  human character of the plot. In  other words, that the plot is only  the external means of bringing  about changes in the characters.  However, if McClelland &  Stewart's sales figures are to be  trusted, the Canadian public  seems to have reversed this set  of ground rules; seems to be  saying, in effect: "never mind  the characterization -- let's get  on with a whirl-wind story!"  All of which appears to make of  Richard Rohner something of a  magician ��� he has created a new  sort of non-novel in which plot  is ALL, the characters nothing.  (Or was that what the old pulp  writers of the Thirties used to  do, not knowing they were creating a new literary form?)  For a credible novel on the  same theme, try and get Ellis  Portal's KBBng Ground (Peter  Martin Associates, Toronto)  which appeared a few years back.  It's about time they did it in  paperback, anyway! "Portal"  (his real name was Bruce Powe)  at lease could create characters  recognizable as more-or-less  approximations of the Genus  Homo.
