A Complete Line  of Men's Clothing  Marine Men's Wear  Ltd.  Phone 2 ��� Gibsons, B.C.  president  The Sunshine Coast needs  more than one Scout Council  to cover the area, Robert Gill,  president of the Sunshine Coast  Boy Scouts Association said at  its annual - meeting Friday  night in Wilson Creek Community Hall. ,  Mr. Gill, of Port Mellon,  was re-elected president, with  Rev. CR. .Harbord of Roberts  Creek as vice-president and  Frank Parker of Sechelt treas"  urer. The association is looking for a secretary.  Members of the district coun"  cil to work with the above ex  ecutive will be Walter Ackroyd  of Pender Harbour, Les Cham"  berlin and John Little of Wilson Creek, Herb Stockwell of  Sechelt, A.P. Harrold of Roberts Creek and Robert Holden  and John Wood of Gibsons.  Liaison members who are  also group chairman will be  Ray Rhodes of Gibsons, Fred  ' Shaughnessy of Pender Harbour, Mike Whitty, of Port Mellon, Sid Butler of Roberts  Creek, Ralph Johnson of Sechelt and Jack Macleod of Wilson Creek.  The financial  statement  A statement of fact  To allay suspicions that the  Coast News is hiding informa"  tion concerning the closing  down of Totem Realty of which  Harold Wilson was proprietor  here are the facts that face this  publication:  Totem Realty has closed its  doors.  To date the Coast News has  had no word from any of the  principals involved in the clos"  ing of the office.  What caused the closing  down of the office is a matter  of conjecture. The Coast News  is in no position to discount or  confirm' any . of the rumors  now going the rounds.  Books of the Totem office  are now  being   examined  by-*  authorities and until the examination, which may take  some time, is complete, all the  Coast News* is able to say is  that the office has been closed  down pending investigation.  At Tuesday night's village  council meeting the folowirig  letter to.Robert Burns, village  clerk, dated Nov. 19, was read:  Dear Sir: It is with deep regret that I have to submit my  resignation  from  the  council.  I have enjoyed working with  you and the council very, very  much.  My best wishes to all and a  very sincere thanks for the  splendid co-operation always  extended to me by you and the  council. Yours truly, H.E. Wilson.  Movie on wild game  Plans are being completed  by Gibsons Rod and Gun Club  for a Sunshine Coast showing  of a unique British Columbia  motion picture by Mr. C.B.  Cunningham, Bridge River, big  game guide and wild life pho-  ographer.  The film, "Hunting and Fishing West of the Cariboo," is in  full color and includes close-  ups of animals, birds and fishes native to the region. Scenic  shots of such out of the way  places as Anahim Lake, Ba-  bine, Kispiox arid Tweedsmuir  Park are featured.  Mr. Cunningham, an expert  photographer, has guided and  operated pack trains out of  Bralorne for the past 25 years.  Of local interest is the fact that  following discovery of gold by  Dr. "Bill" White, formerly of  Roberts Creek, and his partners in the high mountains of  that area Mr. Cunningham assembled a record, train of 200  pack animals arid freighted  equipment to the claims.  Of recent years Mr. Cunningham, with his wife, has specialized in wild life photography.  Last spring the Cunninghams  journeyed to the sub-Arctic to  Expect crowd  Wilson Creek Community  Centre will hold its annual  meeting at 8 p.m., Tues., Dec.  1 in the Community hall with  a social evening to follo���w.  At this meeting the president will make his annual report and the financial report  will be delivered by the secretary treasurer. There will also  be reports from the various  committees.  It is expected there will be  quite a crowd at this event as  the interest in community affairs in Wilson Creek area has  been quite active for some time  10 bouts  A boxing card with ten bouts  will be held Dec. 12 in Gibsons  school hall. There will be local  and outside talent lined up in  these bout�� and it is expected  there will be some good bouts  during the evening.  Boxing will start at 8 p.m.  in the School Hall and a considerable amount of effort has  gone into getting the youngsters who will take part, prim-  ed for this big night. There  will also be some boxers from  Vancouver so it is quite likely  the evening will be one with  some boxing surprises.  photograph the small surviving band of trumpeter swans  at mating time.

'���'���''"��� ?"'������*'''  ire siren  F  step nearer  Tuesday night's Gibsons village council moved a step further towards: installing a fire  siren which would replace the  present siren on loan, from  Grantham's Community Association.  Council sanctioned the order,  ing of a control to be installed  with the siren when it arrives.  In the meantime a council  meeting will be arranged with  an official of the company supplying the siren, to get a better understanding of what is  involved in the installation.  Gibsons and Bistrica Ratepayers association! commended  council for its informative replies given : recent Ratepayer  letters on varied subjects.  Accounts ordered paid totalled $323.75 of which the bulk,  $302.75 was for water development.  Building permits were issued to May; O'Shea. for an extension to her home to cost  $4,500 and to Lionel Single-  hurst for a $300 addition to his  home.  Help offered  Gibsons Elementary; PTA  Nov. 16 saw attendance prizes  go to Mr. Hill's room in the  senior division and Mrs. Armour's room in the junior division.  Members were in favor of  supporting the Ballet auxiliary  in its request for Black Ball  Ferries and Sechelt Motor  Transport having a student rate  Mrs. A. Moorcroft speaking on  behalf of the retarded children  urged support in the coming  drive of the association for  much needed funds. She asked  that circulars which will be  sent out in the mail be read  and given consideration. This  association now has. a class in  the basement of the School  hall with several youngsters  attending,.  Parents were invited to visit the room or rooms in which  their children were taught  where the teacher explained  the curriculum of that room. A  question period followed.  couts  showed $1,596 income including the present campaign to ob"  tain funds and $1,400 expenditure, $900 for general expenditure and $500 apportioned  for campsite, leaving a surplus  of $196.  Reporting on specific areas,  Mr. Gill said the situation was  not as gloomy as last year.  Pender Harbour had one lead,  er and 24 cubs with a group  committee which was not too  active. Sechelt he described as  a real pleasure. Here was a  group not too active two years  ago really doing very well with  a group committee also doing  well. Sechelt, he said, should  be proud of the work done  there.  Wilson Creek troop won an  award at Powell River's Camporee and its group committee  is working hard. The boys have  their own clubhouse. Roberts  Creek cubs were active but a  scoutmaster is needed. Tlie situation here is not good. It was  one of the best groups in the  oast.  Gibsons had the largest  Scout and Cub groups and was  fortunate in the leaders it had.  Port Mellon had cubs but no  scouts. A scoutmaster was  needed.  Commenting on the proposed campsite at Ruby Lake  which the council is trying to  obtain, Mr. Gill said the stumbling block was the need for a  survey to find property boundaries. Who was going to do it  he did not know.  Scouter courses he favored  but pointed out it was not possible to send local leaders to  scouter courses in the time available to  them.  Ralph Johnson, chairman of  the nominating committee be"  fore-presenting Ms: rslate . for  nomination complimented the  Sechelt scouters for the fine  work they had done. There  are now 16 boys in three patrols. Mr. Gill congratulated  Cpl. "Tick" Payme of Sechelt  RCMP for the work he was doing with WiJison Creek scouts.  Barney Cavariagh, represent  ing provincial headquarters  congratulated council members  for what he had seen of scouting on the Sunshine Coast. He  said he had fewer problems in  this area than many others. He  thought of scout meetings as  being short, simple and sincere  and he wanted to add another  word, happy. This meeting, he  said, was run as a scouter meet  ing should be run.  Scouting was not a one night  a week affair. It should be part  of everyday life, he added. Sec"  retary of the meeting was Don  Macklam who is retiring at the  end of the year.  88ih BIRTHDAY  Quite a number of people  dropped in on Mrs. Anna Wi-  lander of Gibsons oh her 88th  birthday Sunday. Mrs. Wilan-  der has lived in Gibsons for  more than 50 years. Among her  visitors was her son William  ���from Vancouver. Stan Allibone  local baker, provided a birthday cake.

The Motor Vehicle branch  in Victoria is now printing  1960 licence renewal applications for all registered motor  vehicles. Mailing commenced  Nov. 20, and it is expected the  work will be completed so that  vehicle owners will receive  their application by the first  week in January at the latest.  A new type of form is being  introduced this year. An own-  er will receive a set of three  cards for each vehicle in place  of the four-sectioned form used  in the past. The owner must  sign each card, place his address on two of the cards and  take all three cards to the issuing office when applying for  the 1960 motor vehicle licence.  Licence applications for passenger cars in the past few  years   have  shown the fee to  Haley heads pensioners  , The Old Age Pensioners' Organization held its monthly  meeting Mon., Nov. 16. William Haley1 was elected president, Mrs. B.M. Cole, first vice"  president; M. Osborne, second  vice-president; Mrs. W.W. Dun  can, secretary; A. Kurtzhals,  treasurer, and C.H. Halstead,  auditor and publicity.  On behalf of the Kinettes,  Mrs. George Hunter handled  transportation, and Mrs. Diana  Brackett refreshments and service. Owing to the possible  limitation of tickets available  fdr the Christmas dinner on  Dec. 21, it was decided to give  those who attended the meet-  irig in October, and were un  able to be present at this meeting because of the inclement  weather, the first opportunity  to obtain tickets. The rest will  be taken in the order of receipt of one dollarr for the  ticket. Phone or write J.W.  Edward��, Gibsons 75M as soon  as possible.

Speakers were Mrs. G.A. Binns, third  vice-president of the federation  ��nd Mrs. T. Christiansen,  chairman of community influences. There was an excellent  attendance from all points,  Powell River especially. The  Sechelt group was few in num.  bers.  Mrs. Christiansen told the  meeting ��� that the federation  now has representation on the  board of education curriculum  and had a tremendous amount  of work on the Chant commis  sion. A brief was* also presented on Mental Health. She explained the PTA is not only  for the betterment of child ed"  ucation but serves to promote  and broaden the adult mind  through a leadership workshop  and publications.  collected -JLaat^year-Ajjp 'Ay    ���  There is $728 on deposit  with a few more small donations to be received which will  bring the total to the highest  for the past hree years.  The success of he campaign  as always has rested on the efforts of the volunteer canvassers and it is to them that the  C.N.I.B. at both local and provincial level expresses sincere  thanks on behalf of the many  blind persons to whom help  and treatment has thus been  made possible.  It will be of interest to all  those whose work and donations have been offered in this  campaign to know that there  are 14 registered blind persons  living in the area served byi the  Peninsula branch C.N.I.B. and  enjoying in various degrees  the services offered by the association.  Local donations are going  directly to help at least 14 of  our neighbors on the Peninsula, a fact which should prove  gratifying to those who have  contributed their time and  their money in the campaign  just completed.  Pender  Harb  our  fii  A.E. Newman dies at 85  Alfred Edward Newman who  would have been 86 on Dec. 18  died in his home Sat. Nov. 21.  He was buried Tuesday, Nov.  24 in Seaview Cemetery following a service with choir in  Gibson Memorial United  Church. Rev. David Donaldson  and Rev. H.J. Bevan officiated.  Mr. Newman who was one of  the senior elders of the Gibson  Memorial United church was  born in Leicestershire. He  came to Canada about 1911 and  farmed in Saskatchewan near  McLean until 1924 when the  family moved to Vancouver. In  1928 they moved to Lynn Valley where they took up chicken farming. After 20 years in  the valley they moved to Gibsons in 1948.  In church affairs, Mr. Newman was a faithful worker and  for years was secretary of the  Missionary and Maintenance  fund, making his report, at annual meetings each year.  Besides his wife Alice,' he  leaves two sons, Tom of Langley, B.C. and Jim of Vancouver  also four daughters, Miss Grace  Newman of White Rock; Mrs.  Florence Gable of Davis ,Calif.;  Mrs. G. Morrison of Vancouver  and . Mrs. G.S. Colpitis of  Prince George, B.C. A niece:,  Mrs. Nolan Perret lives at Aurora, Ont. There are eight  grandchildren and 10 greatgrandchildren.  Graham Funeral Home was  in charge of funeral arrangements.  seeKs rire pump  At a meeting in Pender Harbour of the Garden Bay Fire  Brigade last week, it was decided to institute a drive for  funds to provide more up-to-  date equipment. It was felt  that a portable pump was an  essential together with adequate length of pipe.  It was stressed that, with  Forestry Department fire fighting equipment winterized and  unavailable, the Brigade represented the only fire protection in the area.  The harbour area was divided into zones for purposes of  the drive, and various members allocated to each for col  lection purposes.  The brigade is confident that  the drive will meet with a  ready and generous response  from harbour residents partic.  ularly in view of the efficient  assistance rendered by the  group in recent outbreaks.  Objective   of  the   drive   is  $1,000 which the brigade feels  should be sufficient to provide  the required equipment.  be $25 less 10% ��� $22.50. The  1960 application shows the  $22.50  only.  The new type of application  form is the result of a method  to accomplish quicker preparation of annual applications and  a more efficient handling of  applications after renewal licences have been issued. The  volume of motor vehicle licence issuance continues to  grow, presenting the Motor  Vehicle branch with a continuing task of providing an efficient service. The new system  will assist, in that objective.  Gross vehicle weight forms  the basis for commercial vehicle licence fees for 1960. The  Motor Vehicle branch has sent  enquiries to all commercial  vehicle operators seeking this  information. Unfortunately,  some 20,000 of these operators  have failed to send necessary  particulars to Victoria. These  operators will not receive renewal applications and unless  they give this omission early  attention, they will encounter  delay and inconvenience in obtaining 1960 licences. Issuing  offices throughout the province  can help those who are in  doubt as to what to do.  The minister of commercial  transport recently announced  that 1960 licence fees payable  by farmers for their farm  trucks will not exceed the fees  chargeable in 1959. Farmers  will receive 1960 applications  for their farm trucks based on  the gross vehicle weight schedule. When they apply for their  new licences, they should advise the issuing clerk that the  vehicle is a farm truck and the  clerk will provide a declaration which the farmer may  sign. The signed statement will  permit the clerk to issue the  1960 licence at the 1959 li-  ..-edtice-fee rate; *" " ��� '���������   ' "'  1960 licences will go on sale  Jan. 4, 1960. Feb. 29, 1960, will  be the last date on which 1959  licences are valid. Owners who  operate vehicles oi? or after  March 1, 1960 without displaying 1960 licence plates will be  liable to prosecution.  The Motor Vehicle branch  can only; send to owners their  application forms according to  the latest address in its motor  licence files. Many owners  have neglected to advice the  superintendent of motor vehicles of these changes. They  will not receive renewal applications because the post office  will return them to the branch  as undeliverable.  KIWANIS   OFFICERS  Election of officers for the  new year held by the Kiwanis  club members resulted in E.  Johnson being chosen presi"  dent and K. Wright and Dr. H.  Inglis vice-presidents.  Directors will be Ed. Ander"  son, Rev. D. Harris, Ted Henniker, Ozzie Hincks, William  McAfee and Harry Reichelt.  Jules Mainil is past president "with Dick Kennett, secretary and Jim Stewart, treasurer.  ST.

The loyal support of all W.A. members was greatly appreciated  and led to such good results.  4 PLAYS  The drama class of Elphinstone High school will present  three one act plays Dec. 4.

The Coast News has heard numerous comments on the  fact Gibsons was held up in not too good a light as regards contributions to St. Mary's Hospital.  The story which created comment appeared in the Nov.  12 issue and was headed $5.25 from Gibsons. This was a factual  report which also gave the amounts gathered in from other areas.  The general reply to the fact as presented by the Coast  News was that no one called to collect donations.  This is of course true but the Coast News several times  printed information on how contributions could reach St. Mary's  Hospital. This information stated contributions could be channelled through the Coast News office or could be sent direct to  the hospital administrator. The information must have been in  the paper because one pensioner left his contribution with the  Coast News to he sent on.  Hospital authorities have strived to get contributions from  ���this end of the Peninsula ever since the present publisher of the  Coast News has been in business. The Coast News has done everything it could do to stir up contributions all over the Sunshine Coast.  Apparently the publication of straight facts with the head,  ing revealing the situation did some good. Hospital authorities  ���are quite pleased with the response. Thanks should go to those  people who realized tlie situation and responded as best they  could.  Concerts appreciated  The group operating in the Sunshine Coast area and  known as Overture Concerts association is composed of men and  women with an interest in hearing and seeing foremost singers,  instrumentalists and dancers. The association is now in its fourth  season.  The three years which have been completed, three concerts in each of the series, have raised some eyebrows but not  necessarily because of the same set of facts. There are those who  wondered about the success of such a venture and there are  others who did not find all programs to their satisfaction.  To those who did not believe in its success, there have-  been times when the executive felt success slipping from their  grasp but somehaw they managed to finance the series each jyfear.  To thci3e who did not find all the programs to their taste, they  will just have to grin and bear it because it is a rare performance,  theatrical, concert of otherwise that pleases 100 percent.  Those brave persons who associated themselves with the  plan to bring high class talent to the Sunshine Coast should be  commended for their effort. The danger in which they usually  find themselves is in allowing their taste to over-reach the pock-  etbook. However it looks as though after the fourth year of concert the association will break even.  For this, Sunshine Coast people should be grateful. The executive could have over-reached itself by a considerable margin  and put the finances into a deep hole. This did not happen. On  behalf of music lovers in this coastal area the Coast News offers  grateful thanks with the hope there will be more concerts in  years to come of the type we have been having over the last  almost four years.  Your move Mr. Bennett  The premier of British Columbia, Mr. W.A.C. Bennett, has  shown considerable financial acumen in raising something like  $30,000,000 through bonds sold to the people of this province so  ���he could finance Pacific Great Eastern railway operations. These  bonds were backed by the resources of British Columbia.  Mr. Bennett's government appears to be having difficulties in raising money to allow school construction to be carried  out, construction which in a good many cases was sanctioned by  ���ratepayers many, many months ago. The government is also  -finding it difficult to finance school board operations, forcing  boards to apply at banks for money with which to carry on.  Naturally this adds to the cost of operating schools. It adds also  to the amount of taxatioa ratepayers have to pay.  Mr. Bennett might be a good chap and do the right thing  by these ratepayers and instead of increasing taxation, float a  school bond loan just as he did for the PGE. Surely education is  of the same importance at least as is the operation of the PGE.  These bonds could also be backed b&i the resources of British  Columbia.  hjbau WITH  BLACK BALL  to and from  ��� ��VI��*��wll  VnK      l��*''Hia-KH'��l'B7  SECHELT PENINSULA  POWELL RIVER  fast, frequent ferry Service Every Day  Reservations NOT Needed  TOPS for convenience���  TOPS W space ���TOPS for speed  Follow The Black Ball Flag!  Research board explores  use of herring as flour  Scientists of the Fisheries Research Board of Canada's technological station at Halifax have  closed one chapter in their development of fish flour, but have,  removed the wraps from a new  fish flour project that promises:  even greater potential than the  original research experiment, reports Trade News, a federal department of fisheries publication.  They nave written "finis" to  their successful experiments on  "white fish" ��� cod and haddock  ��� as a source of the high-protein fish by-product, and have  now started exploring the abundant stocks of herring and ale-  wives .as the raw material for a  newer brand of fish flour.  The original project with cod  and haddock was a singular success. Not only was the fish flour  ���duced from cod and haddock  offal at the Halifax station proven to be as fine a quality ��� if  not finer ��� than any produced  in the world, but tlhe Halifax product has another quality that was  heretofore missing. The latter  factor evolving from the last  stage of the experiment involved a special treatment of the  product that makes it easily mis  sible in liquids such as milk or  water.  One of the problems had been  the difficulty in suspending fish  flour in li.quid, but the new treatment has cured that. There is  now   more   uniform   suspension  62 conference  A further stage has been reached in planning the Duke of Edinburgh's Second Commonwealth!:  Study conference to be held in  Canada in 1962. The conference  steering committee announce-!  in Toronto that Vincent Masses  former governor-general, had  consented to become chairman  of the conference council, tir.J  governing body of the conference.  The decision to hold this Con?i  ference, wihich will be attendee*.**  by industrialists and trade union-*'  ists from all parts of the Commonwealth and the Empire, was  made last June when Prince  Philip met with Canadian indusf  trialists and trade union leaders  on board H.M. Yacht Britannia  in Montreal. At that time Hi*--  Royal Highness assumed th*T  presidency of the conference.  ana the fish product becomes as  easily suspended in milk or  water as does ordinary flour.  Capping off the fish flour experiment was the recent work  which indicated that the product,  Which is roughly 90 percent protein, has a nutritive value equivalent to egg albumen, which is  the standard used in nutritional  assays.  The station's venture into the  the herring-alewives field as a  source of fish flour has met with  good result�� so far. While it is  true that herring fish flour is  not as white ��� it is slightly grayish ��� as the product made from  cod and haddock, it is, for all  practical purposes, tasteless and  odorless.  Experiments so far also indicate excellent fish flour can  be produced from alewives. Work  is being carried on to measure  the nutritional value of the new  products. Analyses of the amino  acid content of the new flours  will be followed by nutritional  assays made on rats.  Development of fish flour was  a post-war project sponsored by  the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United nations. It  was undertaken by many of the  world's leading fisihery research  laboratories, including the station at Halifax. The programme  was prompted by a desire to supply underprivileged nations with  a cheap supply of animal protein.  There was another reason too.  for emphasis on the work ia  countries on this side of the Atlantic. For instance, dietetic  studies; showed that in Canada,  and the United States there was  need for additional proteins in  some diet formulations, especially for people engaged in heavy  manual work, post-operative patients and elderly people. One of  the simplest uses of the product  has been asi an additive to bread  and cereals.  Pulp and paper production ex-.,  ceeds in value that of wheat|  plus all otlher grains.  Raw material for fish flour  made from cod and haddock is  the offal (trimmings from fillet-  in g* tables, but not the heads)  from the fish. In the case of herring and alewives the whole fish  is used. From the latter species  by-products other than fish flour  are also being developed.  Abundance of herring and alewives on the east coast of Canada gives the current experiment  an added attraction. That is the  economic feature which, in all  probability, would make production of the flour cheaper than  the "white fish" flour.  X  #OH/  .���'**���?  YOUA  V.  2  &-   .

PO-59-4A  No temperamental storm window can defeat this family  minister of labour. Leaving the difficult jobs to the professionals, he looks after smaller repair jobs in his home,  himself. He's a determined fellow who aims at keeping  his family expenditures well within his income at all  times.  The Minister of Labour at Ottawa requires millions  of dollars to meet departmental expenditures, each year  ... and his department is only one of many.  Money for all departments of government comes  through the Minister of Finance who gets it largely in  taxes from Canadians such as you. When more money  is spent than is collected in taxes, government must  borrow from you . . . or else create new money. The  creation of new money is one factor that leads to inflation  . . . which means your dollar buys less and less.  The government has been spending more than you  have been paying in taxes. To narrow the gap between  income and expenditures, new taxes have been imposed.  The next step should be to reduce expenditures, or  at least hold the line. Undertaking new commitments ���  adding new welfare or other services ��� will only make  it that much more difficult to pay our way. Tell your  M.P. at Ottawa that since you are trying to save, you  expect government to do the same.

While this is correct on beaver ranges where the  winters are not severe it does)  not apply in areas suffering from  long periods of sub-zero weather.  One never finds a beaver lodge  in the north country that is not  covered with uncemented sticks  and branches loosely laid to  gather and retain as much snow  as possible on the outside to  help keep frost from the interior.  New books at Library  Fish and Chips, Indian Style  While   porcupine  and   beaver  thrive well on the rind of trees,  it is not generally known that  tree bark is  edible for humans  and that the inner bark of such  trees as hemlock and lodgepole  pine has long been used as food  iby the Canadian Indian. On the  west coast, for instance, the Indians ate freely of a mixture of  inner bark and oil, the latter obtained   from   a   small   kind   of  spratt called  the oolichan,   still  a popular food fish among both  white and native populations.  LETTERS  to editor  Editor: Your previous publi-  cation gave an interesting account of the recent Board of  Trade meeting. However there  seems to have been a misunder"  standing regarding my report  on the Study Group for St.  Mary's Hospital Society.  Wherein you stated ��� "She  reported the greatest need was  to convince the population of  the need for a modern hospital.  The main area in which this  work would have to be done is  on tlie Gibsons end she said."  The latter sentence was not.  quoted* by myself and is definitely not an opinion that I  share.

That's a chief reason whyi  7 out of 10 new homes are gas equipped. Beyond the city gas'  mains, modern LP-Gas -units provide dependable heat, "'white'  glove" clean. Unlike solid or liquid fuels, LP-Gas burns completely,  never leaving residue that fouls the heating system and drifts'  through the home. Walls and woodwork stay cleaner. Rugs and'  fabrics stay brighter. LP-Gas is safe, too. In both central systems  and space heating units, the latest automatic controls shut the  gas off at once if the pilot light should ever go out. We'll be glad  to explain how you can enjoy LP-Gas heat���tops for dependability, safety, cleanliness.

Over 300.-  000 B.C. homes have received  their Christmas; Seals by mail.  Rev. H. S. McDonald, of Hastings United Church, and the  volunteer treasurer of the B.C.  Tuberculosis Society thinks this  year's Christmas Seal is the best  in the 51 year history of this society. "Certainly there could be  no more appropriate Christmas  seal than this one depicting the  nativity scene, "he said. "I am  biased of course but I think a  good many people will agree that  this is the prettiest and most  appropriate seal we have ever  had."  The money raised through the-  annual sale of Christmas Seals  is used in the B.C. Tuberculosis  Society's tuberculosis prevention;  program. Vancouver East citizens  have seen at first hand one of  the many projects made possible  by Christmas Seals in recent  weeks. Operation Door-Step, a  mass TV survey in the Grand  View ��� Mount Pleasant district  has; provided over 10,000 residents with a free TB skin test  and Chest x-ray.  Dr. CC. MacLean, the physician  in charge of the project reports,  "at least 10 new cases of TB  have been discovered as well as  a number of other chest conditions."  Last years Christmas Seal Campaign, raised $255,000 in British  Columbia, $100,000 of which was  raised in   the Vancouver area.

A feature of the service,  which was conducted by Major  the Rev. George Turpin, D.D.,  was the playing of the deceased  man's favorite tune, the 'Road  to th Isles' and other marching  songs of the Seafortli Highlanders of Canada with whom  Major Woodburn served over,  seas in World War II.  Pallbearer�� were his service  friends of long standing: John  Nesbit and Ken Cannon of the  Seaforths; Ralph Geggie, Ross  Ferguson, Bud Insley and Gun-  nar Stenerson. A long cortege  of friends accompanied the  flag-draped casket to its last  resting place in the Field of  Honor at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.  Major Woodburn, who is survived by his wife, Mary, of  Pender Harbour and his daugh.  1c-r Daphne of London, Ont.,  was born in Liverpool, England, of Scottish parents. He  came out to Canada as a boy,  with his parents, in 1914, and  later was articled to chartered  accountancy. In 1925, he went  to Australia, where he engaged  in sheep farming, in Queensland.  Returning to Canada, he resumed the profession of accountancy, and joined the militia unit of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada mobilising  with that regiment on the outbreak of war in 1939. He served with the Seaforths in North  Africa, Italy and North-West  Etarope.  Major Woodburn was for  several years with the Work  men's Compensation board and  came to Pender Harbour in  1952. Shortly after, he was appointed administrator of St.  Mary's Hospital. At the time of  his death, he was president of  Pender Harbour and District  Board of Trade for his second  year of office and a member of  the local branch of the Canadian Legion.

Last month a BCTF committee  announced a proposal for a new  method of "rating" teachers in  three groups ��� instructor, teacht-  er and professional teacher" ���  with a generally similar objective.  Both groups want to improve  teachings standards and qualifications, objectives with which  the department and the College  of Education have also been  identified in past years.  Purpose of the Dee. 15 conference is to talk over the two  proposals and to seek a means  of coming together in a plan  that will be acceptable to all the  vitally  interested groups.  Mrs. Marion Ricker of Nanaimo, BCSTA president, said it was  unlikely the conference meeting  would be able to go beyond preliminary explorations at this  time, but since all were heading  in the same general direction,  mutch more might be accomplished  together than separately.  Neither trustees nor teachers  would be able on Dec. 15 to reach  final decisions, she said, since  the whole membership of both  has yet to examine the proposals.  Mrs. Edna Pell  Death claimed Mrs. Edna  Pell, one of Roberts Creek's  best known pioneers, on Nov.  13, in Vancouver, where she  had resided since 1949.  Born in Washington D*.C.

She first visited  this community at the turn of  the century when she camped  at Elphinstone Bay.  After the death of her first  husband Mr. Leatherdale she  married W. Pell and in 1924  they came to reside at Roberts  Creek. Here as in Vancouver,  she made a host of friends, visiting and corresponding with  them until her death.  Predeceased by her husband  and three daughters, she leaves  two sons, Robert W. Leather-  dale, Vancouver, Fred N. Pell  of Sitka, Alaska, five grandchildren and three great grand"  children.

Faced with the ever-increasing  problem of getting rid of tons of  garbage, many communities are  fuming ��� in more ways than  one.  But many of them have discovered a way to turn their refuse into beautiful parks, and  save money at the same time.  An article in the December  Reader's Digest describes the  sow's-ear-into-silk-purse method  known as "sanitary refill." Under the system, large areas are  gouged out with a bulldozer.  Garbage is then used to fill in  the hole. The area is covered  with topsoil, levelled, and useful  land has been created out of a  little imagination and a lot of  rubbish.  But what about current garbage? Landfill just goes on continually. Dumping is confined to  a small "working bank." There  refuse is immediately smoothed  and packed by the bulldozer, and  topped by dirt at the end of each  day. As soon as a sizeable portion of land is filled, it is covered With a two-foot layer of top-  soil and planted with grass, trees;  and shrubbery. Land is carefully  contoured during the filling  operation.  The new method not only turns  bad land into good, but it can  do its work right in town without being offensive. This saves  transportation and labor expenses incurred when refuse is  hauled to a dump in the outskirts. Landfill can also be used  where there is any sort of low-  lying land or a scar in the  ground.  But some communities, such  as Colbcurg, Ont., are hard to  convince.
