As,  r accounts for 1957 are not complete, any figures are only approximate.  I believe final accounting  will show the estimates for the  current year were fairly close,  except in the case of expenditure for water capital, referred  to further below.  ���������?���" Both for receipts and expenditures, while some individual  accounts will likely be a bit  above or below estimates, I  think the nett will prove to  be close, and not in deficit according to estimate. l  ZONING  As indicated in previous reports, I am not sure our zoning regulations are the best  possible, arid very likely could  be amended to general and  particularly long-term advantage. However, it is a big and  often a complex and contentious matter and while I ana  not entirely satisfied with the  present bylaw, I am hot at all  certain as to exactly what  changes would be in the best  interest.

WATER  Water service seems to have  been fairly satisfactory for the  Chairman presented gave!  at swearing-in ceremony  At Monday night's inaugural  meeting of .Gibsons Village  Commission, the *hew incumbent, Commissioner Reg Adams, was sworn in along with  the elected chairman, Commissioner A.E.

Next regular meeting of the  village commission will be  held Jan. 21.  ������year; operating expenses will  beva bit up from 1957, owing  to. more service given, and  higher costs for electric power.  A very considerable amount of  overhaul work was carried on,  charged to "maintenance,"  some of which perhaps might  fairly have been termed .capital. However, I think final accounting will likely show a  small operating profit.  : The quite large intended capital expenditure for new mains  ^ as shown in the estimates, has  not been nearly completed and  will be work for 1958. However the unexpended balance  Of the appropriation can be  Considered to be in hand, in  ���general funds, and available  for 1958 work.

Original sale price  was in the neighborhood of  $85,000. "  Mrs. Alice Cherry, who managed the business since it opened contributed considerable towards its success.   .  The following excerpt from the B.C. News Letter, published, by Howard T. Mitchell, deals with the situation in the pulp  industry which-is the cause of so much concern in this area. It  is quoted in full:  "As this bulletin goes to press, the strike that commenced November 14, no more wanted by employees than by operat-  4 ors, drags on. Employers are genuinely alarmed by what they  say is a solid conviction iin the ranks of forest industry union  strategy and poiicy makers that any failure to win a great increase in wages or working conditions each year is a 'defeat' for  the unions and a reflection on the aggressiveness of leaders. 'We  all want more out of life,' one company industrial relations man  remarks, 'but the union leaders want it too fast and are goikig to  destroy jobs if they aren't restrained. If we can't sell the product we can't employ, and they should begin to think more  about that, and less about an annual round of wage increases  patterned on boom-time conditions.' "  The above provides food for thought.   -  The strike at Port Mellon and in the general pulp mill  industry contains much that mystifies the general public. Talk  to any of the strikers and they will tell you they did not want  to strike. Yet at union meetings, based on reports received from  various people, the men vote in favor of continuing the strike.  What does? this anomaly mean? Is it that the workers  have individual opinions but when they become a collective  body they lose their individualism? How else can one interpret  what has happened?     v        ^    ;  "  ^U^here^isr; a vthoiight- jin?thi^?whi^*eais>scrutiny.

"~ '    ' A E.^Ritcfcey.'^  ANNUAL MEETING  The annual meeting of the  Merchants Credit Association"  of the Sunshine Coast will be  held on Wednesday, January  15, at the Legion Hall, Roberto  Creek, at 8 pjn.  Editor: My attention has  been directed to a.-(letter in  your issue dated Jan. 2, over  the name of Wes. B. Hodgson,  ' referring to the recent municipal elections, and calculated  to create some misgivings as to  whether those elections were  properly conducted. I was the  appointed Returning, Officer,  with quite definite instructions  that proceedings should be is.  conformity with the Municipal Act, and any Municipal bylaws adopted under authority  of.'that Act. Therefore I deem  it to ;be proper ��� that?I* should.  make reply to the letter,^ and  endeavour to correct the several "somewhat misleading statements.  Reference is made to Sec.  45, Municipal. Act, as setting  out "who is al Resident Elector".' Actually that section  merely provides the form of  application, uwith such variations as circumstances require.'*  to be made by a person wish  ing to be placed on the list as  a Resident \Elector. The pertinent legislation as respects  qualification is given usde? *-  Sec. 30 j (b). Sub-sections , (a>  and (C) give the qualifications  for vpiwner-Electors aiid. Ten-  ent-:Electorsi These three classes of electors are of equal status as respects nomination of,  or voting for, members of the  Council.  * The complaint by Mr. Hodgson appears to be that Mr. Ballentine was a signatory to the  nomination of a successful candidate, such nomination paper  containing the words "... both  residing in the Village Municipality of Gibsons Landing ..."  That is quite true. However,  Sec. 56 of the Act, which provides the form to be used, reads  "A nomination paper may be  in the following form with  such variations as. circumstances require." It will be seen  that the requirements are not  arigid. However, when reference is made to Sec. 54, which  is the real authority, one finds  tfhe following under.sub-sec. (1)  "A candidate for election to  municipal office shall be nominated in writing by two duly  qualified electors of the muni-  cipality ..." Such qualified elector' may be either Owner-  telector. Resident-elector or  Tenant-elector. According to  my information from the Land  (Gonlinued on Pose 4)  Mr. L.. Hempsall, Box 12ff,  Port Mellon. i  Mr. W. Potter, Box. 21G,  Gibsons.  Mr. F.D.

(Dai) Grauer, chaacellor of the  University and honorary chairman of the Development Fund,  explained how $25,000,000 is now  foreseeable.  "First, the Provincial Government has pledged $10,000,000 for-  capital construction at $1,000,000.  a "year", Mr. Grauer said.  "Second, the Federal Govern-  ���rent will make a v a i l'a'b I e  through Canada Council nearly  $5,000,000 for certain types of  capital construction over the  next five years. This makes $15,-.  000,000.  "Third, the Provincial Government has o(fa-;d to match, dollar for dollar, all contributions  received by the University from  business and industry, the public and alumni. This makes $25,-^  ' 000,000.  "Any oversubscription of the  public appeal to alumni and.  friends, both corporations and individuals; will go far towards  closing the $5,000,000 gap, for  the Provincial Government will  match all giflfcs up to $7,500,000",  Mr. Grauer explained.

CW.N.A.  Member B.C. Weekly Newspapers Advertising Bureau  U 9  9  Provincial governments when howling about railways obtaining more money: to finance their operations, indulge in considerable hypocrisy by conveniently forgetting that when they  require more cash they raise taxes. Furthermore none of the  other provinces protest about the effect on Canadian economy  when British Columbia taxation and other costs raise the orice  of B.C. products to the rest of Canada.  The spectacle of six provincial governments protesting to  the federal government because the board of transport commissioners allowed the railways a 3.6 percent increase in freight  rates could raise what is commonly known as a hollow laugh.  Railway seek more revenue as would any other organization when costs mount. No protest is made by any provincial  government, wheat pools or any of the other usual objectors to  rate increases, when labor unions obtain higher wages. That is  apparently good for the economy of the'country but strange as  it may seem, when an organization seeks to cover such increased  costs that is against the economy of the nation or sections of the  nation.  The theory railways or any other organizations are not  affected by inflation and other rising costs seems strange in this  day when we spend so many millions of dollars on an education  which oddly enough produces the type of polifcican to whom two  and two makes four only when convenient. '_��� '  There is a point in the argument of the railways for a  rate increase, which contains merit. That point: is the fact the  Canadian Pacific Railway under present rates' is allowed a 3.75  percent return on its investment while government guaranteed  bonds, the last Canada Savings Bonds issue, allows 4.46 percent.  Why bother to run a railway?. Buy OSBs and let the government  do the worrying. .  An obstacle to> progress  One of the obstacles to progress in mental health Work,  according to the mental health experts, is the public's lack of  understanding of even the most simple facts of the problem.  One of the obstacles to fuller understanding by the general public is the type of mental health expert who makes speeches about "the paucity of our therapeutic armamentarium.'^���The  Printed Word  T^T~V  ��.    X   Vv&v&  Who started the tradition of  Chrisimas Stockings in the  British Commonwealth?  " The traditions of the Christmas stocking, along wi#th other  present day Yuletide customs,  such as the Christmas tree,  trace their start in the Commonwealth from those introduced into England from Germanic traditions by IPrince Albert, Queen Victoria's Consort.  Traditions in Canada have originated, in the majority of  cases from those practised in  Europe. So it was with the  hanging of greenery, holly and  cranberry branches and the indulging in the large dinners  of such old English dishes as  fowl, beef, plum pudding and  mince pies, which were customs brought over by the British settlers.  From. France came the Messe  de Minuit (Midnight Mass),  and 'the reveillon de Noel, including a large family dinner  of meat pies, meat balls, fowl,  suet pudding, pies and doughnuts, to the accompanyment of  party games and dancing until  the daybreak. However, the  exchange of presents in New  France was usually held ovier  until New Year's Day, when  the children learned of Pere  Noel, or St. Nicholas, as a  messenger    froni   the    Christ  Child.  What   was  the  origin  of- the  Christmas Card?  The Christmas Card, as we  know it dates back to the year  1846, when Sir Henry Cole in  England, commissioned John  C. Horseley, R.A., artist, to design a greeting card to send to  friends. This was the first  known Christmas Card designed for the-purpose, although  greetings may have bee,n sent  in similar fashion prior to that  dat<?. It is reported that 1,000  of Sir Henry's cards were  printed. .  The pioneer of the Christmas  Card business in the United  States was Louis Prang, of Boston, who started a flourishing  ��� trade. It can be considered  likely that the origin of the  Canadian Christmas Card dates  from about the same - .time,  somewhere around the year  1876. However, it is quite  likely that the English designs  were used  in  Canada  before,  the American card.      :\ ?;���-���''^  What  is  broadcast ihat^ links  Canada wiih the Far iNTorth?  Tlie program, Northern Messenger, broadcast over the  CBC has sent for many years  Christmas greetings from families and friends to those in  the Far North, and it is one  of Canada's traditional radio  programs for : the Christmas  season. It links those living in  the more populated communities with "those whor year in  and year out, . carry on with  their work in the Far North.  Among "those to whom the messages are sent are members of  the R.C.M.P. and the Services,  trappers, technicians and those  ministering to the needs of  the Eskimos.    " .  By Joan Warn  Gibsons, B.C.  Croft was away, basking in  the sun of California' with  friends; and his being away  posed a question. "Who would  do his paper route and make a  good job of it? First of all>h&  brother took over; that was fine  until an opportunity came along  for all the resit, of the children  to go on holiday.  A rainy Saturday arrived when  the neighborhood child who was  elected failed to show himself at  paper time. "So," said I to myself, "L guess I had better have  a go at this."  *    #    *  I donned my raincoat anil the  paper bag, wiggled, the -papers  out of their parcel and rode off  in somewhat wobbly fashion on  the family bike. I was rather  glad, from the beginning, to be  a small, short person. I hoped"  that passers-by would just take  .m/2 for another child delivering  papers.  ��� '  A list was in my pocket wiUii  the eleven customers on it. A.  few I knew along our country  road. The first one, a next-door  neighbor, laughed when she saw  me with the paper. "You now?"  she exclaimed, "Everybody's off  on holiday but mctiher!"  '<��       *i*       'i-  My next known /customer was  a man I'd met just once, but I  knew him from Croft's reports ���  , a'kindly old-timer here, who filled Croft's pockets with toffees  every trip and tipped him each.,  month's payday. There were cows  in his pasture, and reputedly a  young bull, so I /went' painstakingly., the long way around the  fence and wriggled myself , and  ithe paper bag through a hole in  the garden fence, getting bumped, and wet in tjf.e process, .t  knocked a little self-conscioiitsly  at the dcor and held out-the .  paper. :;  "Wejl, well, well . ��� . .got a  new paper boy (tonight!, This? is  a fine evening for you to be out,  Mrs. Warn. Now, don't goi;-without your toffees. Your boys  don't" Arid chuckling, he insisted  I take them. As I started back  fche way I came with my ?tha&��- )  you," he showed me the easier  way to go; through the pasture  with the- cows in it. All the  gentle things did was to raise  heads and gaze at me as I passed by, and I saw a little red and  white calf nestled under a tree.  '���     *'   *     * ���-;?'. ;?   -  "������ Next customers were mailbox  variety. I went by the, names on  the boxes-and all I had to do was  to roll the papars and insert  them in the proper tin 'Container.  Aflter delivering the first couple  I trundled the bike a distance-up  a dirt road to where I knew one  lady lived all alone. Her greeting was -very: cordial buiii surprised. "Paper? Oh, thank you. Wh-*t  are you doing out in the' rain?"  My explanations brought an  introduction. "Oh, so you're Mrs.  Warn! Those are nice boys of  yours. So reliable and pleasant!"  I was glowing at this, of course,  in spi>te of the drops clinging to  my hair. "You needn't bring the  paper all this way another time,  my dear," the lady said. "Just  put it in. the mailbox down on  the road, there, and there's one  goes in the mailbox, next to it,  also. Sorry you had to come so  far."  "I'm glad I did," I said, "It  gives me a chance to meet my  neighbors!" ?  * *    *  The rest of the trip seemed  lighter when I had disposed of  the next paper. It was downhill  and the bike and I went spinning along as I watched for mailbox- names to show me where to  deliver. I knew Croft's next deliveries were to houses.  My clothes were getting wetter  now. It was a very liquid summer . rain we were getting and  good reason for the abundant  masses of wild greenery on the  sides of the road. I was glad my  next stop carried me down a  small byroad .to the beach where  I might see out to the sea. Croft  had told me of the wiidflowers  down this path and I was-watching for them.  # ��... * .  One day he had brought home  a stem of Indian pipe to me, its  waxy bluish-white flower and  scales lookiMg too frail to last.  We had kept it in a glass on the  kitchen window-sill. I had been  going to roam these woods with  him to find some. As I pushed  along looking for itI sawfoam-  ilowers drifting the sides of .the  path in little clouds. There were  fat red toadstools sitting near  them and graceful fronds of  what our children call ��� "gentleman and lady ferns," one tall  delicate central frond encircled  by sturdy, flatter fronds of a  fresh moist green. ? N  No Indian pipe. Bu/b still I  found a treasure. All. along'���'&  stump were the spatted leaves of  snake , orchids their tail stems  just opening into spires of./fun-  >ny little ?cream-colored flowers.  Weird little snake heads.

' I may say that, as I informed Mr. Hodgson when he made  complaint to- me after the results of the balloting were fairly closely known, that I had  some time earlier noted this,  and one or two other inconsistencies in the Act. Wishing to  be more certain as to what attitude I should take, I got the  Deputy Minister on telephone  and pointed out the several instances. Mr. Brown was quite  definite in advising -me that,  regardless of the prescribed  form, which as he pointed out  did not have to be strictly followed, the rulings made in  Section 54 were the real guide.

CONTEST CLOSES FEB. 28, 1958.  ed that any municipal official,  elected or appointed, is well-  advised  to ,be  guided  by the  interpretations  and advice   of  the  Deputy Minister. In fact, ���  such official would really be  looking for trouble if he did  otherwise.   I   therefore  reject  the contention q�� Mr. Hodgson  that   "..'.   the  Municipal   Act  emphasize(s)   that the   nominator must be a, resident in the  Village    Municipality."     Further,   the" contention   that   "it  was the duty of the returning  officer to disqualify any nomination paper  signed, by him  (Mr, Ballentine) as such signature would not conform, to either the Village Bylaw No. 131  or   the   Municipal   Act."   Mr.  Ballentine, as a duly confirmed owner-elector, is fully qualified under Sec.  54  to   be   a  nominator, and is not disqualified under any section of Bylaw No. 131.  The new Municipal Act contains quite a few "bugs." As  early as last May>at the Municipal Officers' Conference, a  good many had come to light;  by the time of the U.B.C.M.  convention in September,  many more had shown up, and  were the subject of quite long  discussion, often spirited. This  is not to be wondered at: there  are 899 sections to the Act; it  is designed to replace nine  previous Acts, referring tb  many matters, besides touching, on some matters formerly  covered in part by still other  "Acts. Anyone who has followed press and radio reports during the past seven months must  be quite aware of many of  these 'bugs." Meanwhile both  elected and appointed officials  must carry on, doing the best  they are able, and continually  referring to their Deputy Minister for guidance in uncertain circumstances, as was  done in this case.  To summarize: All nomination papers at the recent election were properly signed; the  nomination paper itself did  conform to the relevant section  of the Act prescribing the form  but in so doing introduced matters that could not be enforced under the superior part of  the Act; that superior part was  used as final authority, on advice of the Deputy Minister,.  Finally, all forms apparently  being in order, balloting was  held, and two * Commissioners  elected from a field of three,  by a majority vote. - ?    5  I thing it almost certain that  the Municipal Act will come  up for extensive "going over",  at the, fdrthcomhig session of  the;Begisiature. Following that  it will probably?, be in order  that Bylaw 131 be? amended to  eliminate some of,its "bugs",  ar*d to conform to whatever  version the amended Act may  assume. ���������/  Speaking now, not as returning officer, but as an ordinary citizen, taxpayer and  resident fdr many years, and  who has been connected one  way or another with many of  the projects that helped promote better and .easier living  conditions in the whole community, not onry the Village;  I must deplore the insinuation  contained in the,closing paragraphs of Mr. Hodgson's letter  that "commissioners are signing papers without knowing  what they are signing" and  "the bylaws of the Village are  .enforced for some and not for  others." So far as I know,  neither of these charges is even  approximately true; v certainly  not in "any matter connected  with the recent election. Nor  is it likely to be true in any  proceedings which are under  my jurisdiction, as were these,  elections, as returning officer.^  Robert Burns'  r  THIRD DOSE POLIO INNOCULATIONS ARE NOW DUE FOR ALL PRiJ-SCMOOL  CHILDREN.

Further, I believe there is legislation to authorize the pro*  vincial government to. make  engineering surveys to establish needs and possibilities for  water service, to those people  who are* their wards.  So fair as supply goes, I do  think the-village probably has  .enough tapped in for anothei  year, barring unforseen weather conditions or other devel-  opment. More drilling will o*  course, be necessary before  long, and probably development of the Payne's Creek supply. I should mention reported leaks in the main serving  Blocks 1, 2 & 6, K & L, D.L,  686; this matter should be examined. Cost of replacing the  bad sections probably would  not be high, but very possibly  the entire section should be  re-installed, which is quite a  job.  ROADS  Considerable road work was  done during the year, though  no surfacing was carried on.  Very considerable right-of-way  clearing, grading, ditching and  culverts occurred. It does seem  that when the present clearing  contract held by D. Irgens is  completed the village will have  just   about ^completed  nearly  all of that sort of work for  which it will be liable.' except  for a few short lanes, mostly  in D.L. 685, and in some places complete clearing of road  right-of-ways where grading  yhas been done,������ sometimes not  in the best route, without having completely cleared the  right-of-way. i- ,  Probably during 1958 further surfacing will be undertaken; certainly it does nbt  seem possible to hold the  School ��� Road with a gravel surface, and the South Fletcher  Road and Winn Road, at least,  are carrying quite heavy traffic. ,'":::..' , . ..  GARBAGE  Garbage collection continues  to be done by private enterprise, sometimes, apparently,  not too ' satisfactorily. During  the year the village, after several failures and disappointments finally obtained title  to about ten acres, outside village limits as a garbage disposal site. This site seems to  be exceptionally well suited  for the purpose.  It seems to me very likely  that sooner or later the village  will have to take on the work  of garbage collection and disposal. So far, I am very doubtful if the majority of the ratepayers would be prepared to  approve the very considerable  cost of such a venture. I think  most, but not all, business premises desire it, and would be  willing to pay, but while some  dwellings wish it, I question  if these are.in a majority.      .',  If and when the Village does  undertake the work, I hope  that it will be done with equipment suited to the work. My  observation of other' small  communities^ and discussions  with clerks, etc^ indicates that  when it is attempted with some  Gibsons Social Welfare Club  DATE  Ugion Hall 8 p��m.-TUESDAY, JAN.  14  NOTICE  Application for the position on an annual basis of general  work and maintenance man f on the Village of Gibsons Landing  I    will be recteived by the municipal clerk up to 12 o'clock noon/  January 21, 1958.  Applications to be in writing and to state salary expected.  Further information as to duties, hours of work, etc. may be  obtained from the municipal clerk. Arrangements will be made  for the council members to interview suitable applicants.  ���������' '' .,-H;.. -?."'Clerkv:  old dump truck, etc., the cost  results are not good.  Another point is the use of  the village system by outside  people.    In   the   past,    even  though operated privately,  in  actual fact the village treasury  subsidized, to a greater or less  degree, garbage collection from,  as far afield as Sechelt. That  is not fair to our own taxpayer. And I suspect there is still  ��� the   idea,   in   some   quarters,  .that the present garbage site,  when it begins to operate,, will  be a dump for all the surrOurid*  ing territory, with "the village  looking after, disposal.  SEWER?        -'   ; '   ^'^Yv'vjf?.  :   During the year the Sechelt  School Board installed- a sewer  main to dispose Of septic tank  effluent from their schools to  the s.ea, on a route through the  ���Village.    Arrangements    were  made- to permit connections to  this   sewer   from   15  separate  premises, in the main business  district, and so located as to be  possible in respect to required  gravity flow. The costs of these  possible connections, and  the  larger   sewer   pipe   required,  have been paid. It is expected  these  costs will' be  returned  by   a   division   of  the   total  among the  separate premises  when they apply for  connection. So far no formal applications have been  received,   although a number of inquiries  have come in.  HEALTH  Generally speakng, health  conditions have been good, and  sanitary work adequate  through the efforts of Dr. In-  glis an}'. Mr. MacDonald. Considerable trouble was experienced in enforcing; even rudi-,  mentary precautions in one  business premises, but finally  conditions were .improved; it  is to be hoped that these im??:  proved conditions,will continue  FIRE PROTECTION     *  The Volunteer Fire Brigade  continues to give very excellent service ori fire calls;>This?  year, unfortunately, village  fire loss was above the' usual  almost nil, largely o'wirtg to a  severe electric storm, starting,  a number of fires at the same  time. One other fire was in an  old building, of poor construction, probably with quite unsafe smoke pipes.  Apparently fire fighting service continues to be given to  districts well outside village  boundaries. I am not at all  sure that this is fair to the village taxpayer, who pays all  the costs except the very important contribution by the  Volunteer brigade. ..-.??.  I have made a check to compare the costs to the treasury  as with the Village of Sechelt,  where the fire protection is on  a different basis^ I find bur  costs are considerably higher,  both absolutely and in propor-,  ton to property value.'  Another point of concern is  that the premium rate for insurance at Sechelt seems to be  lower than with us. I am not'  at all clear why this, should be;  allegedly because the fire loss  at Sechelt is lower than ours.  I question this, as until the  fires mentioned above, which  occurred at a date too late to  have yet affected many insurance renewals, our village loss  was very low indeed. I think  possibly  it is merely  another.  instance of the vagaries and in-\  consistencies of insurances people, of which I have had numerous evidences in the past.  SUPERANNUATION PLAN  A   committee   composed   of  .   municipal representatives, government men, and representatives of civic employees have  a;been working  for  more than  two years in ah effort to bring ���  J down a scheme that would be  I as nearly, satisfactory as pos- .  sible   to   all   concerned. Such  scheme,   is . npw    tentatively  drafted, and includes provision  for   the  many   municipalities,  such   as   this,   who   have   not  ��� been carrying any superannuation and are classed as being  in deficit. The plan provides  for this, deficit to  be  repaid  over a period of 25 years,  at  i the same time putting the mu-  .-* nicipality into the plan.  I am, I think,- the only regular employee that would come  under the plan. There is also  |. provision   that   fire   brigade  I.members, of volunteer status, -  * be brought in. We have not  t yet got all full details on this,  but  I suggest 'that a careful  study   be made  early in the  year. Nearly all large employers,  and. most; municipalities,  etc., now carry their employees * on   superannuation  as   a  regular procedure, in order to?  attract steady men; ,     ,  BUDGET  I would urge that'a careful  study be made of the 1958 budget, commencing in??January-  , and ���particularly of the expenditure side", .proposed expenditures, ,by eiach department,  should be shown , in detail,  with the-estijmated. cost for  each item. It is definitely not  satisfactory, or in accord with  government direction, that a  ? department should be given a .  sort; of blanket. authority to  spend a sxun 6f <mbney^.-It  should be authorized to do  certain specified work, for  certain estimated authorized  costs. These costs would all  be worked out weil before _the :  Council meets, in committee or  otherwise, to actually draft the  budget.  Almost certainly departments will wish to do more  work, and spend more money  available during the year. That  than is likely to be reasonably  is the . picture of nearly all  governments, municipalities  and school boards; some items  have to be shorn off .;But careful work beforehand in compiling costs can give a clearer picture at budget making time,  and *enable the council to bet- >  ter decide just what must be  dispensed with, and how much  the taxpayer can reasonably  be expected to carry for the  year. !       #  Very often, I ttiink, the taxpayer, while not pleased with  payi'ng taxes, will be fairly satisfied'* if he can be shown that  it is.for items tha$ are for his  or general benefit, and that  careful consideration of itemized costs have been given. r  A REAL DOLLEMA was caused at the Children's Hospital in Vancouver when dolls from the Pacific National ExMbition, Home Arts  Doll dressing competition were presented to the chiildren for Chris-  mas.
