 DANNY'S  DINING ROOM  Phone GIBSONS 140-  JUST FINE  FOOD  After two months of long,  vigorous training, Saturday  night, Dec. 12, becomes a. reality for members of the Peninsula Boxing Club.  All members of this club  and some who aren't have  worked very hard to make this  fight card one of the finest  : sports attractions ever held in  this area.  1 Trainer Frank Zantolas has  been fortunate to obtain the  services of Len Walters to referee the bouts.  Walters, a Vancouver boy,  has appeared in two Olympic  Games, as well as the Britsh  Empire Games. He later turn?  ed professional.  Probably the highlight of,-  his career came in 1952 when  he won the North American  featherweight championship in  Boston, wading through some  U.S. competition along the way?-,  Alex Strain, trainer at the.  Totem A.C. in Vancouver, will  be bringing in four of his boxers that include Eddie Campbell, twice winner of the Buckskin Gloves and once chosen  Canada's outstanding Indian  athlete. He will fight a fellow  club-mate in the main event.  Strain's other two boys will  be matched" against local hopefuls Dennis Muligan and Gene  Pearl.  Other   local   boys ' strutting .  their stuff will .be Bruce Wilson,    Joey     Gibson,    Ricky.  Swartz,  Rocky   Zantolas   and  Paul Watson, and others. ?  A number of the boys won't  appear on this card, not because they lack ability but because suitable matches could  not be found for them. These  boys need not" feel badly, because ttiey will undoubtedly  be in the next-show.  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume llj Number 48, Decembei 10, 1959.

Sechelt will have an election for the two seats to be  vacated by Bernel Gordon and  Capt. Sam Dawe. Both are run  ning again and a third candidate, William S.

The same situation has arisen in Gibsons where Reg  Adams will seek re-election  along with Mrs. Gertrude Corlett, a long-time resident of  Gibsons, and Wes. Hodgson.  Mr*. Hodgson who sought election two years ago was beaten by five votes by Mr. Adams.  For the school board, Mr?.  Christine Ritchey is seeking  election for the first time.  Last year she was appointed  as trustee for Gibsons by the  department of education. This  year she seeks election. She  will be opposed by Robert  Holden, a B.C. Electric employee.  All seeking election in Gibsons and Sechelt will be elected for two year terms.  Gibsons Village Council decided at Tuesday night'�� meeting to explore possibilities of  laying a sidewalk from the Bal  Block to the United Church  corner. There are considerable  difficulties ih .the-proposition  and careful consideration  would be  necessary.  Robert C. Ritchey informed  ^council he. was retiring as secretary and member of the Sechelt Gibsons Airport management committee owing to  work commitments requiring  him to be away from this area.  H.G.

Elphinstone High School on Dec. 5  from 1 o 4 p.m. The attendance  of over 30 teachers was gratifying to the committee who,  under the chairmanship of Mr.  A.H. Child, planned the program.  Miss EX. Baxter, assistant  professor in the English department of' the University of  British Columbia was speaker.  Her talk on developing in children ah.appreciation of good  poetry was greatly enjoyed by  her audience.

Bruch, Social Credit MLA for  Esquimalt   explained   he   was  on the Sunshine Coast because  the constituency had no Social  Credit  representative   in * the  legislature. He thought it only  right the   government   should  put things right by having him  speak.  Opening remarks consisted  of an attack on the Vancouver  press, during which he expressed the opinion one could not  believe anything they publish-  (Coniinued on Page 4)-..'*.'

Robert Holden, seeking election to the school board informed the audience he had two  children attending Elphinstone  High School and one at the Elementary school. He was an em.  ployee of B.C. Electric and  added he would do his very  best to support the people in  what, was required.  Mrs. A.E. Ritchey, seeking  re-election to the school board  explained the board had to curtail transportation costs ori demand of the school district superintendent. A bus was taken  off the Headlands route which  has made children walk farther but SMT puts on nickel  buses 'and if they are desired  the people must apply for them  themselves. Mra Ritchey ex-,  plained she did not feel at all  guilty about having the bus  taken off as reductions were  made in all areas. If re-elected  ; she would do her best.  Mrs. G?

T'his is the largest class of  candidates to be confirmed in  St. Bartholomew's and to mark  the event it will be the only  Anglican church service this  Sunday on the Sunshine Coast  except for a visit by the Bishop to St. Mary's at Pender Harbour. ���'.  '. He will visit Pender Harbour Sunday afternoon to conduct a special-service at 3.30  o'clock. The service will bh  held in St. Mary's Church, and  it will be the only Anglican  service in Pender Harbour area  that day. It is the first visit  Bishop Gower has made to  Pender Harbour area for some  time and it is expected there  will be quite a large congregation to greet him.  the village council, nominated  by acclamation, expressed  thanks for the confidence ths  people had placed in him by  returning him without opposition. He added words of praise  for Robert Burns, the village  clerk on whom, he said, the  council leaned quite heavily.  Mr. Burns was widely known  arid admired by all in municipal circles', he   added.  {Wes. Hodgson, president of  tile Ratepayers' association, also seeking election to council,  stressed his years of service in  accounting and municipal affairs in Saskatchewan. He said  he was approaching the election with a free and open mind  and believed he had something  to offer as a member of the  village council.  Business conducted by the  association included the writing of a letter to council com-  p.aining about mouldy bread  being sold, urging that bread  be date-stamped.

About  350   people saw  the  Friday's   drama   performance  at   Elphinstone   High    School  which opened right on the dot  of eight with selections by the  school   and   accordion  bands.  Mr. Moss played selections on  the Hammond   electric   organ  which jvas specially set up on  stage for. the occasion. The ac-  cordi6n"t)and under the direc-  ? tio-a^of Mrs. Plumridge of Se-  - chelt^--piayed'::0---G^ada.?*",;'?*::::.:,i.  Mr. Potter expressed thanks  to all who had helped  make  the evening a success. He explained the work of the drama  class and school band.. He mentioned that net proceeds of the  evening were  for   2t.   Mary's  Hospital  Society.  Tlie main entertainment be- -  gan with "Where's That Report  Card," a very good effort on  the   part   of   all   players,   al-'  though   a bit  rusty  in  parts.  Robin    McSavaney   was   out  standing  in   hi��  portrayal   of  Junior   and  the  situations   he  got into proved to be an amusing outcome. ' .  The  intermission was  filled  with   excellent   selections  by  the accordion and school bands  accompanied by chimes* whicn.  were  very  effective.  The next play, "Shivering  Shocks," "started a little hastily but soon began to take effect. The entire cast were  males and they were very well  suited to their parts. Johnny  West in his role as Capt. Dallas  and Norman Jones as the detective, showed a little more  than the others. The audience  was brought to life near the  middle of the play when a  shot rang clear, and all the  lights were dimmed. The accents portrayed by the boys  created a very, good atmos- *  phere and brought the play to  reality.  Last, but not least, the play  "Two Crooks and a Lady,"  with its senior student cast  was an improvement over the  other two, and all the parts  were   well   polished.   Heather  Bracewell as Mrs. Simms-Vale  and Dick Vernon as Miller the  Crook were outstanding in  their parts Also, Jean Mason,  as the maid, did a very good  job of her part The interesting and amusing plot of this  play provided for very good  acting and portrayals  Here are some reactions of  members of the Drama  class:  The settings although made  hurriedly were quite convincing. _        .j....-.^.;^-,^ - -./ -.  A lot of work wavs Hone by  all members and everyone felt  rewarded by the warm applause.  I hope we can tackle something larger and take it to another school.  ... it was fun, especially the  makeup.  Once on the stage my nervousness disappeared.  H.,. there could have been  more practice, even though it's  trying work.  The character you are playing begins* to bore you but on  the big night you really get into the part.  The props were too hard to  find. People wouldn't put their  props in the prop box and that  drives  a prop man crazy.  The  class sure   co-operated.  I was pretty shaky  after.  LEGION MEETING  The annual meeting at which  officers will, be elected by Legion Branch 109 in Gibsons,  will be held Dec. 16 starting at  8 p.rh. in Legion Hall. There is  keen interest in this election  ��0 many candidates are likely  for some of the offices. Members desiring transportation  shou'd call Ray's Taxi, at Gibsons 58.  RECEIVED BY CHURCH  Nine young people were received as members at last Sunday morning's Holy Communion service in Gibson Memorial United Church. Rev. David  Donaldson officiated in the  ceremony with the aid of  church elders.  The sixth annual banquet  and dance of the Sechelt Peninsula Rod and Gun Club was  held in Roberts Creek Hall,  Sat., Dec. 5. Dan Currie, president of the club, as master of  ceremonies and following a  wellprepared meal catered tc  by the Sechelt Kinsmen, introduced the head table guests.  Mr. Meade, secretary manager of the B.C. Federation of  Fish and Game Clubs spoke of  the work of the federaton to  cbtain better access to hunting  areas in the province. Their  procedure is to arrange for  members of local clubs to obtain access first, then to have  this privlege extended to members of any game club n B.C.  and eventually to the general  public::  He was followed by Dave-  Maw, vice-president of the B.C.  Federation of Fish and Game  Clubs, representing the federation and the president, Mr.  Reimer of Trail, who congratulated the local club on the  excellence of the banquet and  mentioned his own club, tlie  Vancouer Angling and Game-  Club.  Corporal   Roy   Allen,   game;  warden of this "area, expressed  the regrets of Mr. Frank Butler, commissioner   of the B.C.:  Game   department,   who   was.  not able to  attend as he has'  done on many other occasions-  He   also   explained   that   Mr-  Bert  Wilson of  Powell River  was not able to attend because  of work in the interior for the  Department    of   Conservation  and Recreation.  Mr. Allen urged all hunters  to join a local Cub to promote  good   sportsmanship  and  conservation.   He  also   supported,  the request made by Ed Meade  "that instances -of pollution or  establishing   of    industries   in  areas   where   industry   is   not  necessary ��� areas much more  valuable  when  conserved   for  sportsmen,   be   reported.   Corporal   Allen   also    urged   parents to have their children joia  junior   cubs   where  they   car*  learn the rules of safety when  handling a  gun.  Butch Ono, director of fishing activities for the club, was  called upon to present the  Kingfish trophy, awarded to  the member catching the biggest salmon during the year.  Mr. Stan Fallows won the honor with his 41 lb. spring salmon caught off Gospel Rock  this summer. Mrs. Lola Caldwell was asked to accept the  congratulations of those present as winner of this year's  salmon derby. She had received her  prize  earlier.  Mr. Currie thanked Lou Fox  chairman of the banquet arrangements, reminded the club  member:: cf the annual meeting  Dec. 10 and extended an invitation to all to attend the turkey shoot at the club grounds  at Wilson Creek on Sun., Dec.  13. beginning at noon.  There followed an enjoyable three hour**? of dancing to  the music of Eric Inglis and  his orchestra.  CHRISTMAS CONCERT  The United Church Christmas concert for Sunday School  children will be held Fri., Dec.  18 starting at 7:30 p.m. in the  church  hall.  Letter to editor about new Langdale school  Editor: Attention, taxpayers  of Soames Point,, Hopkins  Landing, Langdale, Granthams  and the Gibsons area.  The School Board intends to  proceed with the erection ol  a school at Langdale at a cost  estimated at ' $40,000 unless  you act now.  The points to be considered  are:  Those in favor say education  icosts per pupil will be lowered because of lower transportation costs. But where is the  saving? It will require two  teachers and a janitor for approximately 30 pupils.  Those in favor say parents  do not want their children riding the bus. Is it preferable  having them walking a maximum of 2Vz miles on a heavily  travelled highway with practically no shoulders? Make no  mistake there will be no  school bus heading north to  Langdale school.  Those in favor say the North  Road cut-off will be built eliminating the ferry traffic. When?  Letters written to the. highway  department give no assurance  it will ever be built.  Besides we still have the  Port Mellon workers travelling  to and from work at times coinciding with the school children going to and from school.  Most of the route is a 40 mile  per hour zone with bad grades  and sharp curves..  Those in . favor' say population increase will make it possible to enlarge the Langdale  school. There is no doubt the  population   will  increase?  but  who  has   bought  property   at  Langdale?   The majority  have  no   children. At Hopkins  dur  ing the past few years all build  ing has been done by retired  and summer people with every  indication the trend  will continue.  At   Soames Point   over  70%   of the  residents do   not  have     children     of     primary  grades, Hopkins is similar.  Those in favor say because  of smaller classes the teachers will be able to give more  attention to the pupils. There  will be six grades in two rooms  Who is kidding who?  The Gibsons Elementary  ���School was built in 1921 and  will certainly need to be replaced in the very near future. ���  Your principal has  suggest  ed the annex cculd be enlarged to eventually become the  elementary school at a cost per  classroom far less than a  school at Langdale. Maintenance costs are naturally lower  in a large school. The elementary school including the annex has 8 classrooms. A more  efficient school would be 12  classrooms. Building at Langdale would delay for a considerable time any building in  Gibsons.  Time   is running  out.  Whether   you   favor   a   school   at  Langdale or not let your wishes be known  either by  letter  or   post   card   to    the   School  Board in Gibsons.

An economic argument  There are times when a speaker trips himself up without  realizing he has done so. H.J. Bruch,. Social Credit MLA for Esquimalt. did just that Saturday night when he spoke before a  ���meeting called by the Social Crediters in the Anglican Parish  Hall.  Mr. Bruch deplored our dependence on United States for  investment funds. To offset this he suggested we should get funds  ���for investment from other countries so we would have a cross-  balance which would be better for Canada. With this one can  agree. It would be better if investment funds from outside sources  were spread over more countries.  Later when discussing the present monetary system he expressed the view bank loans were merely bookkeeping and that  (iepositors' money was not used to implement them.  It was right hare he tripped.. up. his entire argument on ec-  ��snomics. If bank loans are just bookkeeping entries our economic experts are overlooking a field which should be explored ���  iif such exploration would be of any use.  Mr. Bruch referred to the federal tight money policy and  i&ow it affected the provinces and the average person. If loana are  Just a matter of bookkeeping why have a tight money policy0  "If provinces are having a tough time trying to raise money why  are not provinces in the business of banking so they could with  "bookkeeping obtain for themselves unlimited financial resources?  If all ten provinces expressed the desire to go into the banking  "business Ottawa would be hard put to refuse their applications.  Manitoba once had a provincial bank. Alberta had one too.  Neither have one now. There must be a reason. Most likely other  ������provinces in the past have had provincial bank systems but they  are not prominent, now.  One could suspect the average businessman would like to  Save the Social Credit monetary system extended to his business  ao he could indu**ge in some bookkeeping which would free him  from monetary worries. It's a nice thought but it is still "pie in  ihe sky." '  Investigations unlimited  To comment on two investigations, one ended in Canada arid  "She other continuing in the United States, is like offering belated  ^congratulations or sympathy or someone who has been on a job  Jo long, monotony has become obvious.  To suggest the probe into food store prices revealed any-  Ifhing new would be stretching the imagination somewhat. Wheat,  ���formers have commented for many years on the price spread  between grains and breakfast foods. The average housewife  ��ould have written a good many other sections of the report  ���without ever having tackled a witness.  As regards the United States enquiry into "payola" to fur-  ���H&fir the interests of song writers and music companies, radio eta-  ���tffons and employees one could refer back to publications of the  tfcarly 1940's in which the system which has eaten like cancer  Sato the entertainment world of North America, was then out-  Imed. To suggest authorities were not cognizant of the fact the  "fast buck" fever was taking over in a wide swath of tiie enter-  feinment field would be to live in a dream world.  A link with our university  The University of British Columbia extension department  Stas been a guest in our community many years. Through its services* citizens can take degrees by correspondence, borrow rec-  srds and books, participate in conferences, hear lecturers and  .���speakers who are sent at the request of community groups.  The extension department provides thejpabst direct-link between the community and the University, in his biennial report  Sne extension department director. Dr. Joha Friesen, announced  Ibrmatiart of a Council on University Extension to function as  an advisory body and provide a closer liaison between the University and the community.  This development indicates demands for adult' 1*/cation are  Micreasing and the council will be asked to study ;���. .��� advise on  ��ravince-wide services, education for professional and community leadership, community development and the p-- -"sic .*���. of conference facilities for adult education both on av:\ <AA Axe campus.  ���^Se-council, it is hoped, will be another tool to be used effetetive-  **����� in the ta.sk of spreading effective adult education.  Who first   sighted the  Rockies?  Anthony Henday, a Hudson's  Bay Company employee, was the  first white man to enter the territory that is now Alberta and  also first to sight the Rocky  Mountains. The date of Henday's  birth is uncertain but it is known  that he was bcrn on the Isle of  Wight and Joined the Hudson's  Bay Company two years after  being outlawed for smuggling in,  1748. He was sent out to York  Factory on Hudson Bay and in  June 1754 set out with a party  of Cree Indians on a 2000-mile,  year-long journey to the Far  West. In October he reached a  Blackfoot encampment, probably  about 18 miles southeast of tha  present city of Red Deer, Alta.,  and spent the winter there gathering furs. When he returned to  York Factory in June 1755 he  was leading a brigade of 70  canoes laden with, pelts. This remarkable journey prepared the  way for the establishment of the  company trading posts in the interior.  * *    *  Where was The Maple Leaf  Forever first sung?  The patriotic song, "The Maple  Leaf Forever," had its first public performance in the village ot  Beaverton, Ont., on the shore of  Lake Simcoe, in 1871. The song  had been composed by Alexander  Muir, who was teacher at the  Beaverton public school at the  time.  * *    *    .  What is the King of the Salmon?  King of the Salmon is the*  actual name of a rather odd  fish. Its scientific name is  Trachypterus rex-salmonorum. ,  It has a long ribbon-shaped body, v  up to eight feet in length, a  weakly boned, pliable skelton, a  long*- dorsal fin that rises to a  point at the head, a greatly developed upper lobe to the tail,  and a very peculiar horselike  head. The King of the Salmon  is occasionally seen on the surface of the water off Canada's  west coast. Such appearances  give'rise to sea-monster stories. .  There is a primitive belief that  if the King of '3v& Salmon is  harmed salmon will leave, the  area.  * *    *  Where  did Canadian  Bilingualism Begin?  The first stage of official Canadian bilingualism began in the  courts. As early as 1766; just  three years after the Treaty -of  This book  might help  It is amazing how many Canadians are living in a mental  desert when it comes to knowing something about Canada. It  is also amazing how easily  they can obtain such knowledge at little expense.  Canada is a vast country and  unless one has travelled from]  shore to shore one does not re-!..  alize how vast it is. Many peo-j  pie do their travelling mental-;  ly, seated in their own com-;  fortable chair, using pictures;  and the printed word as their?  guide.  Picture*-*' of   every  province  in  Canada  and every city  in!  the country along with.important    information   concerning  them are readily available in:  a handbook ��� one which can'  be held  quite  readily in one  hand.  The handbook, known as  "Canada 1959" with something  like 320 pages between a quite  attractive cover is probably  the cheapest buy at one dollar  in all Canada for such literature. There are beautifully colored pictures and excellent  black and white reproductions  throughout.  It also contains more infor- ;  mation about Canada than any <  other .book of its size. It should i  be' possessed   by   every   high ���  school student also teachers of  any classroom, no matter what  grade | It is a compendium as  easy to reach for as the daily  par-or or favorite magazine ���  maybe easier because it is so  compact.  Who publishes it? An organization supported largely  by taxpayers who should take  pdvn-nta ���*?***��� of its numerous  services.

They have produced as the  foreword states "a factual annual survey of the Canadian  economy, social and cultural  development." It should be a  best seller.  Paris ceded Canada to Britain,  the English law officers of the  Crown, on information supplied  from Canada, reported that to  try civil and criminal cases in  what was to the people "an unknown tongue" and without Canadian advocates, jurors or judges  conversant with French, would  be inconsistent ynth British justice. Judges knowing both English and French, they declared,  were necessary.

To add to his thoughts  about the press he told how on  the night Mr. Gibson gave his  expose of forestry affairs in  the legislature, he saw legislative reporters leaving the legislature bearing cases of beer  and bottles of beer in hip pockets.  Mr.   Bruch   then  turned  to  government power policy and  while   he  did not approve of  the Chemainus  thermal plant,  he said the .commission of inquiry into the Briggs charges  showed every last charge made  by  Briggs  proven   unfounded.  Speaking of public debt and  contingent      liabilities,      Mr.  Bruch  likened  contingent  liabilities   to   a   co-signed    note  which if paid in full did not  constitute   a   debt   to   the   cosigner. The contingent liability  method was used for the building of roads and bridges.  Commenting on opposition  views on public debt he asked  how the opposition expected to  keep the debt down based on  what they promised to do if  elected. He argued they would  add tremendously to the debt  of the province.  A trip to Saskatchewan revealed to him the CCF government there had four sets of  books and yet the CCF in B.C.  were complaining the government had two sets of books on  public financing. He said Saskatchewan had a direct debt set,  a contingent liability set, one  for public utilities and a fourth  covering industrial loans.  In Saskatchewan they found  socialistic theories unfeasible  yet the B.C. CCF party was advocating socialism for this* province, he, said.  He asked, in view of Mayor  Alsbury's remarks that conditions were terrible at Oakalla  prison, just how far the government had to go to satisfy  people. He outlined how spending had increased heavily over  previous years not only at the  prisons but in mental hospitals,  pensions -for aged and education. \  The government, he explained, was trying to be fair and  was striving to develop the natural resources of the province  Municipal Voting Dec 17  RE-ELECT REG   ADAMS  BIG STAGE SHOW  at PENDER  HARBOUR  Featuring   LYNN   O'SHEA   TAP DANCER  8:15 p.m.  FRIDAY, DEC. 11  Taller O'Shea Orchestra  DANCE TO FOLLOW  ROBERTS CREEK DANCE SAT., DEC. 12  I.

In connection with the university claim for more money  from the provinical government he challenged university  officials to show its operating  surplus for the last year which  he c.aimed was about $1,000,-  000.  He explained the university  had raised its fee rates. He was  getting a little bit tired of such  abuse and asked for a fairer  attitude.  The government had changed forest management licenses  from perpetuity to 21 years  and that B.C. had the toughest  regulations covering forestry  in all Canada.  He warned his listeners not  to let anyone fool them about  mining regulations because the  government was not giving  away the resources of the province. Stipulations 'Were put in  the Mining Act requiring that  work be done each year up to  21 years, or the life of the  Jease.  Mr. Bruch criticized our dependence on the United States  for investment cash and asked  what would happen to Canada  if times got serious and U.S.  investors, pulled the rug out  from under Canada? We should  get down to a sound economic  bisis based on development of  our resources.  American capital may be desirable, he said, but we should  also have some from other  countries. By this means we  would have a cross-balance of  international accounts which  would be better for Canada.  British Columbia needed development of good labor-management policies. He pointed  out employers did not protest  when Workmen's Compensation rates which they had to  pay, were raised yet labor complained when it was made responsible for its actions under  Bill 43. He did not want any  part of a might is right policy  and this applied to civil servants as well. Labor-management peace was necessary.  Wenner-Gren interests had  to apply for whatever it wanted just like any individual, he  maintained.  Stretching out a map of British Columbia he outlined what  the government was trying to  do ��� shift the spread of population to the north country.  There was a need for making  B.C. economy run north and  south. The more we get from  cur resources the less we will  have to take from the people,  he said.  Covering international trade  he said we should, place overseas orders where the country  will in turn purchase our products. We have got to stop doing what we have been, doing  in the past.  Grid   power   was  necessary  ���������at  for British Columbia-'-and if  Ottawa had not stepped into  the picture B.C. would now  have Mica Creek dam con-  olructed. It is going to take  eight years to develop the Columbia river. We need Colurri-"  bia, Peace and any other power development available.. With  a grid power system industry  would move in. (A grid system  allows power to be supplied  from various sources.  Explaining how our money  system worked he said bank  loans were a matter of bookkeeping only and money placed by depositors in banks was  not used ,for loans. Turning to  the federal field he said Prime  Minister Diefenbaker's government was getting the lion's'  share of the tax dollar and the  lesser governments getting  less to finance the various institution's we use most. Tlie  federal government was also  giving the east more than the  west. Maybe the B.C. government was not of the right  stripe, he added.  During the brief question  period he was asked about the  road to Squamish and his reply was that he could not say  off-hand   when   it   would   be  ATTENTION H>  TO PEOPLE OF  Pender Harbour  RAY NESTMAN wift  have the "1960 Corvair"  at MADEIRA PARK on  Fri., Dec, 11  Come along take it for  a drive.  built.

Rayner  Returning Officer  GIBSONS  426 6    Coast News, Dec. 10, 1959.  stamp fight  Home owners with natural fireplaces should plan to have some  Yule logs for the holiday season.  They are not expensive, nor are  they difficult to ma^e, T>ut zney  have to be completely dry before  using and sliouie: De scarted as  soon as possible. If the weather  is warm enough, it may be possible to dry them outside in ths  sun, but if not, the heating room  in the house should prove sufficiently warm for quick drying.  Newspapers- or magazines form  the basis of the logs. When dipped in either soapy water or  chemical solutions, completely  dried, and then tied in bundles  which resemble logs, they burn  slowly and provide a variety of  colors. It is riiost important that  the material be thoroughly dried  before they are tied. For this  reason, drying should be done on  a rack or clothesline or a rope  to permit the air to circulate.  Various types of woods will also  absorb liquids and, when dry,  will burn with the same attractive colors you can create. Odin  ary soapy water can be used as  a solution and the log of either  paper or wood will produce a  variety of colors depending on  the chemicals used in manufacture of the soap.  If you want tailor-made colors,  however, here's how to go about  making them. Chemistry has  shown that when ocean salts burn  they produce a variety of colors.  It's not possible for all of us to  get salt water so the trick is to  prepare it.  To two gallons of boiling water  Here's how you pick holly  BYRNE      HOPE      SANDERS,  widely known research, advertising and marketing executive of  Toronto, who as Canadian consultant for The Sperry and  Hutchinson Company will help  encourage a fair weather atmosphere for discount stamps in  Canada.  In acting as Canadian consultant for The Sperry and Hutchinson Company, Miss* Sanders  brings to her new duties the result of years of experience in  market and consumer research.  She is currently co-Director of  the Canadian Institute of Public  Opinion, popularly known as the  Canadian Gallup Poll, and is also  associated with Canadian Facts,  Ltd.,of Toronto.  During World War II, Miss  Sanders served as Director of the  Consumer Branch, Wartime  Prices and Trade Board. In this  work, she organized the women  of Canada for co-operation in  price control and rationing, with  a network of 16,000 housewives  across the country working voluntarily through her Branch. For  her war work, she was made a  CBE, highest honor attainable  for a women in Canada.  Miss Sanders previously had  become widely known as editor  of Chatelaine magazine. She has,  ever since its inception, been the  only woman member of Canada s  Dollar Sterling Trade Council.  Gifts of English holly are high  ly prized chiefly because they  express so well the traditional  "Merry Christmas"! How very  important then that the holly be  attractive and fresh when it arrives and that it remains in this  condition as long as possible.  Choose only clean, highly  colored leaves and berries with  the latter well distributed along  the sprig for a balanced effect.  When ready to ship, cut and dip  momentarily in a solution con^  taining naphthalene acetic acid.  This is normally available under  various trade names and used  for the prevention of apple drop.  Use at 30 parts per million ���  which is three times the strength  recommended for apples shown  in the direction on the container.  After dipping and quick draining, pack immediately into wax-  paper lined cartons, cellophane  bags, or appropriate "moisture-  proof" containers, to retard drying in transit.  Holly is a live product, therefore perishable. Avoid heat and  frost. If you must store the  holly, store at 33 degrees - 34  degrees F.  In the home, holly can be kept  green and fresh much longer if  the sprays are arranged with the  stem end., in bowls or vases of  water. Cutting the stem-ends  helps the uptake of water.  add two pounds of coarse salt,  two pounds of bluestone, and an  ounce each of the desired salts to  produce all or some of the colors-  you prefer: Barium nitrate ���  burns green; borax���burns green;  bismuth nitrate���burns crimson;  antimony chloride���burns blue;  potassium chloride���burns purple; strontium nitrate���burns  red.  The ingredients should be mixed in a wooden pail or concrete  laundry tub rather than a metal  container as the salts will corrode  metal. If the laundry tubs are  used, care should be taken to  rinse the tubs thoroughly as the  solution is being emptied, to prevent damage to metal drain pipes  and fittings.  Warm water is used because  the salts- will dissolve much more  quickly in the warm solution.  Newspaper is actually better than  glossy magazine paper because  the latter does not absorb moisture so well. The paper can be  rolled and tied before insertion  in the solution of your choice, or  it can be dunked, dried and then  rolled.  It is usually easier to roll and  tie the log before immersion,  then remove it and dry, but the  drying process is usually longer.  In most cases, it takes at least  a month to dry one. Old books  which have had the hardba ;k  covers removed or even telephone books can also be used to  advantage.  The paper should be allowed  to soak until the liquid is absorb  ed and then removed for drying.  Incidentally, if you just wish to  use common salt, you will get an  orange flame. Bluestone, found  in most home laundries, brings  a blue flame.  Concerning Christmas scenes  for the outside of the house or  for    window    decoration,    most  hardware stores and building  supply dealers have patterns  which can be traced on plywood.  If the ornament is to be located  outside the house, exposed to the  elements, and plywood serves as  the base, make sure a grade "ol"  wood treated for exterior treatment is used.

The first long ring tells the  operator that you want to make a cail and the last tells her the line  is free.  "REMEMBER: the RING:OFF is especially important, otherwise  the operator may report your line as "busy" to anyone  trying to call you;  BRITISH  COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE  COMPANY  on the switchboard, which lists  95 percent of tlie points in Canada and the U.S. called frequently from Vancouver under the  international distance dialing  system.  The check mark and the "nine"  tell a Vancouver operator that  any call to an Enid number in  th.3 nine-thousand series might  be to a paystation and so, if the  call is collect, she should arrange  payment at the other end.  But it isn't one of these. Sho  swifly pulses out 035 on the keys  at her right hand. This sends  the call into Regina, western.  Canada regional centre for the  network. Then comes 405 which  passes it to Oklahoma City, a  sectional centre homing on Dallas, Texas, one of the regional  centres  in the southwest states.  The "2L plus" indicates the  number actually being called  and means two-letter five-figure.  Keying of the letters puts the  call into Enid and the five figures home it to the called phone.  Our operator is way ahead of  us. 'TThat telephone in Enid has  rung and been answered long  before now. '  But who supplied the operator  with this particular code and  the thousands of others she  needs to carry out her job?  A large number of people had  a    hand in it. People like Ella  Grover in Kansas City, Mo., the  1 central   clearing   house for the  continent for all toll routing information. Mrs. Grover heads up  the routine section under C. T.  Pilling, traffic routing engineer  ^for   the   whole distance  dialing  - system. People like our own Miss  Irene McSavaney, toll routes and  records   supervisor,   who   distributes the material sent out from  Kansas City to our area and in  ��� turn sends similar information to  the clearing house.  The total number of codes required to provide long distance  call routing from any one point  in North America (and Hawaii)  to any other point is, of course,  astronomical.  Every toll operator has two  sets of routing codes within  reach and eye-range, and access  to additional information at seven  rate and route centres ��� Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster, Nelson, Cranbrook, Kamloops and Prince George.  The operator's main reference  is a flat bulletin under the glass  of her switchboard key shelf,  which lists codes for points most  frequently called from her particular office. The second, of  course, is the multi-card file mentioned previously.  The rate and route centres  duplicate this information in tha  form of reference lists for about  3000 toll centres and tributaries  in North America.  Combinations of this material  ;are   supplied,   according to the  ?needs   of the   particular office,  vfor each operator's flat bulletin  4 and multi-card file. The information is  changed  as   the   traffic  from the  office dictates.  A 20-  day check on traffic from each  office is made every July, and  97 percent of the  points called  during this period are listed with  the appropriate routing codes.  This could result in. peculiar  situations. If, for example, a  tourist became hospitalized at a  particular centre following an  accident, and made frequent calls  to his distant home���which normally was not called from that  centre���the distant point would  end up on the toll operator's bulletin. If there were no calls to  the point in question during the  next 20-day count, the listing  would come off.  Routing information comes into Vancouver from Kansas City  almost daily. The net result is  between 400 and 450 changes  monthly which must be sent out  iri the form of some 600 reference sheets, to the rate centres,  in addition to revised cards for  the multi-card bulletins for all  offices where tihere are operators.  The result is a constant flow  cf information, but the codes  sent out by Kansas City for routing from B.C. to a distant point  are not necessarily complete. As  far as Victoria is concerned, for  instance, a code to access the  Vancouver machine must also be  supplied, so Miss McSavaney and  her staff must add this before  sending- it out to the field. This  type of information also mi'st  be sent to Kansas City which in  turn spreads it to the four corners of the distance dialing network.  Revised and new routing information is concerned with local conversions to dial ��� which  means new two-letter five-figure  numbering at various points.  When Vancouver's Kerrisdale  went automatic earlier this year,  every point in North Ame^ca  able to dial ji h.^d to "^now t.W  it could bo dialed as of a certain  data and that the "2L plus-'  stood for AJ\Oierst, followed by  five figures.  For thr* '���ime reasons, dial  conv rsion dates no longer cm  be set on a hit-o-r-miss basis  The  rule book says they must be  made on the first or third Sundays of any month, and they  must be    made    at 12:01 a.m,  Coast News, Dec. 10, 1959.    7  Mountain Standard Time, on  those days.
