It laid down a policy to seek  assurance from the owner of  the property of immediate action  towards making the property available for use as quickly as possible or else the board would v,e  forced to seek other means of  providing for necessary school  space. The board' will request  Mr. E. C. Thompson to appear  at the Jan. 9 board meeting to  see what can be done.  A letter from St. Bartholomew's Anglican church officials  on the use of the Parish HalJ as  an elementary school set the  term of occupancy to end Dec.  31, 1961. This drew comment  that "it would expire in mid-term.  The result of debate which followed was that an extension  would be sought until the end  of the school term in June.  The board decided after discussion on dental treatment for  children in grades one, two and  three, that the dental work would  be placed on an advance payment basis and that fees would  be $4 for pre-school and grade  one with a $5 fee for grades  two and three.  Sechelt area  In future any organized instructional   activities    during  lunch hour or after school hours  must be referred to the school  board through school principals  for the board's consideration.  This move is to enable the board  to know What is going on and  who would be bearing the responsibility.  The board valso> decided that  responsibility for untoward events in scfiools where outsiders  will be using the schools, will  rest on those persons signing for  the use of* school premises!  Before closing the meeting,  Mrs. C. Jackson whose term as  chairman ends on Dec: 31, thanked members of the^lioard for  the support they- jtia&YOffered.

The inaugural meeting is expected to take place on Jan. 20  with commissioners from Vancouver present.  Under the guidance Of Dictrist  Commissioner Norman F.

Telephone company  last July has now been granted  by the Board of Transport Commissioners ahd the increase goes  into effect on the Jan. 27 bills.  This was announced at Tuesday night's meeting of Gibsons  village council when a letter  was read from the phone company. This increase affects the  Gibsons-Port ' Mellon exchange  only.  The board, which controls  telephone rates has recognized  the fact the Gibsons-Port.; Mellon exchange has graduated  from group two, a 1,000 phone  bracket, to group three, a 2,000  phone bracket thereby requiring  a higher rate.  B. F. Abram, B.C. Telephone  Co. district commercial manager at North Vancouver, said the  grouping, system is commonly  accepted by regulatory bodies  having jurisdiction over telephone rates in Canada and the  U. S. Rates are based on the  number of telephones in each exchange, or the combined total  cf the exchanges between which  free-calling is furnished, such as  Gibsons-Port Mellon.  The combinedf^areas now have  a total of more than 1,125 phones  Gibsons itself having grown  from 370 when the B.C. Telephone Co. took it oyer six years"  ago, to approximately :1,000. Port  Melon has mote than 100 andJ  the two combined put the general area in the group three category.       ..   .

Mr.  Hicks   thanked  council  for   the  co-operation which councillors  offered. Chairman Ritchey commended Mr. Hicks for his cooperation over his two-year term  Accounts totalling $1,64S.20  were ordered paid, $1,034.63 for  roads, including $789.85 for culverts, $497.10 for fire protection  including $485.10 for new hose,  $47.29 for water, $42.34 for general expense, $14.36 for parks  and $12.48 for winter work.

"It is the feeling of the Sechelt Rural-Wilson Creek Ratepayers' Association that an approximate 50% increase in rates  of the Sechelt Waterworks Ltd.,  it excessive and out of line with  the improvements instituted since  1953 and is also out of line with  the increase permitted under the  jurisdiction of the P.U.C.  "Further, operating costs are  high but appear to be the result  of inefficiency and mismanagement, and we feel that the onus  should be on the Sechelt Waterworks Ltd. rather than on the  consumer, to operate their business in a more business-like and  efficient manner.  "According to the 1959 audit,  operating expenses amounted to  57% of revenue; this Would indicate a balance of 43% to profit,  which would appear to be more  than  adequate.  "To our knowledge the only  costly addition or improvement  which has been borne solely by  the Sechelt Waterworks Ltd.,  was the approximate 2,000 feet  of six inch main from Selma  Park Store to the top of Selma  Park hill. All other improvements have been paid by a direct assessment on landholders  involved and we further feel that  this expense can be easily absorbed by the 43% profit.  "Since water mains to lots of  the Sechelt Lands Ltd. increase  the value of said lots to the advantage and ultimate profit of  the Sechelt Lands Ltd., and  since obviously this cost will be  passed on to future purchasers  it seems . only reasonable that  this capital cost should be borne  by the above company, rather  than by the present consumers.

This arrangement resulted  when it was necessary to place  the Smokwa on the Jervis Inlet  run in place of the Quillayute.  The Smokwa was to have been  added to the Langdale run over  the holiday period.  It is likely the Quillayute will  be out of commission for a three-  week period. The Cy Peck will  be used only as an auxiliary vessel duxing" the Christmas runs,  Black Ball officials announce.  The mishap to the Quillayute  occurred   at   the   north   end  of  inlet before it was beached. The  lug Scallop II took passengers  off the Quillayute.

I'm afraid I was  a bit rash. It's been rented for  a cabaret too  (The hall, not the  dress).  I should think that by  leaving    one    hall    free    there  would  still be  plenty of dances  for the   'older"  group.  I suppose it is too late to even  think about a dance this year  but perhaps next year it will  be given some thought, we'll  wait, we have a few years yet.

This will enable all leaders in  this district to attend a well  directed course near home. Tentative dates have been set for  Jan. 21 and 22 at  Port Mellon.  Anyone from this district interested in becoming a leader,  members of group committees  or councils, are also invited to  attend. Please direct enquiries  to the Secretary, Mt.

Editor:   I   would like  to take  this opportunity on behalf of the  Hospital Improvement District  Organizing Committee, to thank  you for the co-operation you  have given our committee during the past 20 months. The result of the recent plebiscite to  form the Impi'ovement District  is proof of the effectiveness of  the publicity we have received  in   your paper.  In addition, I would like to  express our committee's appreciation to all those who assisted us before and during the plebiscite. The part played by those  who contacted voters and provided transportation to the polls  was undoubtedly responsible for  the large turnout despite the  bad weather on the day of the  plebiscite. The overwhelming  affirmative vote cast by a large  number of landowners should  be of great satisfaction to all.  Finally, I would like to thank  the members of the H.I.D. Orr  ��:anizing Committee for their untiring efforts, and also the Board  L.f Trustees of St. Mary's Hospital Society and its chairman,  Mr. A. Lloyd, whose support of  our committee in all its decisions has been most encouraging.  L.   HEMPSALL  Chairman,  H.I.D. Organizing Committee.  Gibsons area  and Inhalator Coast News, Dec. 22, 1960.  (By LES PETERSON)  (Article   Four)  As the weight of ice pressing  down on them gradually diminished, land masses rose slowly  and unevenly. Most did not rise  to their former elevations, but  since minute salt tx-aces in the  soil to heights of 600 feet have  indicated uplifts of that extent  in the Fraser Valley, it can be  presumed that comparable actions prevailed in this area.  ,At the same time, the release  of fresh water from the melting  gigantic ice-sheets caused the  ocean level to rise also, possibly several hundred feet. If  simultaneously, as it can be presumed they did, then the actual  land uplift must have been mucn  greater than the net results  would  make it  appear to have  been,   measuring  ocean level.  Evidence of the fact that the  entire land surface rose unevenly can be found in gravel beds,  where strata once unquestionably horizontal are now tilted  and warped. The deposit near  the mouth of Langdale creek is  a good example of this uneven  uplift, caused no doubt by uneven melting of the ice-sheet,  and pex-haps by unequal pressures from lower portions of the  earth's  crust.  Although melting of remnants  of the ice-sheet, throughout the  northern hemisphere, is supposedly still causing a slow rise in  ocean levels, stone docks some  5,000 years old found recently  in the eastern Mediterranean  have not been submerged.  The fact that some of our own  beaches, between sheer cliff  above and sheer drop-off below,  are comparatively flat, would in-  from   today's     dicate   that   ocean   levels  have  and   grew  on   soil   unsuited   to  Teenagers and smoking  not altered much f or many  thousands of years. One explanation for this apparently static  condition might be found in the  fact that, while ice in the Arctic  is melting, in the Antarctic it  is   accumulating.  Six thousand years ago, then,  the topography of the Pacific  coast was much as it is today.  One major difference for a time  at least after the disappearance  of the ice-sheet would be a lack  of vegetation.  Except perhaps for some semi-  fossilized stumps as those commented on by L. S. Jackson, the  fix-st genex-ation has long since  disappeared. What it was like,  and how it came here, is today  a matter for speculation/Some  seeds may have lain dormant  and survived the grinding of  the ice-sheet. Quite likely most  of what, found root seeded by.  being carried northward by wind,  tide and bird from foliage that  grew below the southern limits  of ice, and by these processes  followed  its  retreat north.  Undoubtedly many   seeds   fell  them, to make way for some  other species a generation later.  Certainly, as soil conditions and  climate still change, and as forests are cleared and allowed to  renew, types of vegetation alter.  Clearing land on our Pratt  Road ranch during my youth,  my father and I discovered, under fir and cedar stumps at least  500 years old, the resin-preserved roots of a much more ancient  spruce forest. Travellers along  the Port Mellon Road can observe, where logging operations  and slashing of the B. C. Elective right-of-way have removed  the current growth of trees,  mainly fir and hemlock, that the  stumps remaining from the preceding generation are almost entirely cedar.  Whatever more ancient generations of vegetation have been  like, the past two of three have  constituted a rich resource in  the modern world, and have  been largely instrumental in  bringing. Europeans to the area.  Wnz Coast Nfctus  Published every Thursday by Sechelt Peninsula News  J.d.t P.O. Box 128, Gibsons, B.C., and authorized as second class  aail, Post Office department, Ottawa.

David Donaldson)  As you gather in your own family circle at this Yuletide Season,  may you-, recognize something of the love Of God which links us together as a family. May this be a season of real joy for you; may  the light .which streams from Bethlehem shiixe on your lives so that  others m&y see God\s love more cleax-ly.  People in all lands following an old custom express to one another the mutual regard which they ordinarily take for granted. We  never enter fully into the meaning of this radiant holiday until it has  lecalled our attention to the Son of God, this man who was born on  Christmas Day is the best friend humanity has ever known.  The road to Christmas is old but ever new, and we need this  ffl&ought about Christinas th^ road we may dis  cover His Glory. Though the setting of Christmas is a lonely manger there is about it the touch of loveliness and beauty. Christmas is  more than a tradition, it is the hope of the world, it is God's way of  Bringing light into a troubled world.  We listen to the Christmas music as we journey along the Bethle-  Hem road together. It is like a prelude for the rising curtain that is  immortal. The veils of the intervening years drift apart like a morning mist. A cloudless sky at night may be beautiful, majestic and  beyond descx-iption, but the blue above and the green beneath are  deeper and richer when the spirit of Christ dwells within us.  Christmas is the brightest morning in all history. It commemorates the coming of a man we call Christ, and the anniversary of  His birth is the greatest festival known among men and nations. Let  His birth be an event in our lives, for we shall have to drink deep  from the rivers of God as we face another year.  May the Peace and Joy of Christmas Day be with you all.  3Bje gentle tfjings of eartf)  Not in hurried day, but in the quiet  Of night, to shepherds watching in the field,  The angel of the Lord brought joyful tidings  Of him through whom God's love should be revealed.  Not to the wily king, whose promise of devotion  Failed to deceive the travelers from afar,  Appeared the signal of prophecy's fulfillment,  But to the wise, who followed a silent star.  Not in the crowded inn the babe was cradled,  Amid babble of voices or noise of worldly mirth,  But peacefully within a simple manger,  Quiet, and close to the gentle things of earth.  Max Dunaway, in The Christian Science Sentinel  premier'* Cfcrtetma* iWessgage  Premier W. A. C. Bennett's  2S5Q!:.message to the people, of  British Columbia1 reads as follows-,  "On.ce again, people of Christian bfelieLihroughout the world  are preparing to observe the  most happy and meaningful anniversary of all.  The magic of Christmas draws  lamilies closer and restores long-  neglected friendships. But as  we exchange these warmly personal remembrances, we recall,  too, that our faith enjoins us to  . turn our thoughts outward at  this season in a prayer for peace  and goodwill to all men.  The message of Christmas is  an old one; but time will never  dim its truth and beauty. Let us,  then, give thanks again for the  j^aace and serenity conferred by  ���Sod on us who live  in British  ��ttt&��bia. and  let us fervently  hope that these great blessings  may extend to people everywhere.  "Merry Christmas to you all,  and good wishes for the New  Year."  GOD BLESS CHRISTMAS  "There are many things from  which I might have derived  good, by which I have not profited, I dare say," said the nephew. "Christmas among the  rest. But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas  time, when it has come around,  as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time;  and, therefore, uncle, though  it had never put a scrap of  gold or silver in my pockets,  I say God bless it!" ���iCharles  ..An.   essay,   which   .lampoons  smoking as an adult version of  infant   thumb-sucking   has   won  top   prize   among   nearly   2.000  entries in a contest sponsored by  the British Colunxbia and Yukon  Division of the Canadian Can-  cer Society.

Entries throw some interesting light on what teenagers think  about the hazards of smoking  and the reasons for the widespread and growing use of cigarettes.  #  -.;b  Following are excerpts 3 from  some of the 226 finalists in the  contest:  "By some, smoking is considered a means of showing authority. By others, it is a means of  rebelling against authority. Jangled nerves are soothed by the  mad puffing of many other nicotine fiends. These reasons are,  in my mind, utterly stupid.  Which would you rather have,  jangled nerves or lung cancer?"  ���Dan McCalium, New Westminster.  "The fault of beginning to  smoke, does not always lie entirely on the shoulders of youth.  The burden, is very often shared by the parents. To combat  the spread of this idea/ parents  should set a good example, and  laws should be established pro- (  hibiting the sale of cigarettes  to persons under a certain age.  Advertisements stressing the. joy  and relaxation one obtains  through smoking should be banned." ��� Dietmar Waber, Grade  11, Steveston.  *        *        *  "The  best reason' (for  smoking) is-to be one of the crowd.

"Subtly, over the years, advertising has created the impression and conception that smoking is a sign of maturity, and is  socially correct.

"Smoking is a habit which  brings none of the promised blessings; a habit that quickly turns  into an iron-fisted master; a  habit that most scientists believe  to be extremely dangerous. To  smoke or not to smoke? It is an  individual's decision, His future,  his life." ��� Annalea Fance,  Whitehorse.  "There are very, very few  homes today in which not one  member of the family smokes.  We must consider the fact that  non-smokers will be inhaling the  air that we contaminate with  smoke.

Yulfc logs��� a Jost traditi  Dickens  Carol."  in    "A     Christmas  The yule log is a tradition of.  Christmas, but due to central  heating and gas stoves it is be-;  coming a lost tradition in this  country. Few city dwellers have  open grates or desire a log fire.  And those living in the country  find coal more efficient and less  trouble.  However, for those who have  a place'to burn the yule log and  want one, tradition says it should  be oak, ash, olive, apple or  pine. Further, the fire on which  il is placed should be kindled  from a brand saved from last  year's log, and that it should not  be allowed to go out during the  night. i  For those determined to have  the yule log, the voice of expert  ience says get hold of all the  wood you can. Some kinds burn  better than others, but reject  none these  days.  Ash is highly praised-by some  and can be used without being  seasoned. It burns very quickly but throws off great heat.  Poplar on the other hand, should  be ;seasoned or it will spark badly-,  Elm is condemned as undesirable, but it can be used. It is  slow to get burning, but lasts  a long time and brightens up  when it gets going. A few logs  of birch, pine or fir will help it  along.  Beach and oak are among the  best logs. Beech is especially  good, having a pleasant aroma  and a steady glow. Oak has the  outstanding merit of '��� burning  slowly.  If none of these are available,  wood from all kinds of fruit  trees are prime favorites for the  yule log because of their pleasant  smell when burning.  Amendments to the National  Housing Act will increase the  size of insured and direct loans  that N.H.A. borrowers can obtain. This will lower down payments, thereby admitting new  bori'pwers to the active market,  William H. Payne, M.P. for  Coast-Capilano has informed the  Coast News.  The bill increases the amount  ol the loan from 90% of the first  $12,000 of lending value to 95%  of the first $12,000 of lending value and 70% of the remainder,  as before. This change will have  the effect of increasing the loan  and reducing: the down payment  tor a house worth $10,000 by $500,  for a house worth $11,000 by  $550, and for houses worth $12,-  000 to $14,000 by $600.  These measures will so reduce  down payments on lower priced  houses that home ownership will  come within reach of a much  larger group of Canadians.  For the medium priced dwellings worth over $14,000, similar measures will be. taken to reduce down payments to eliminate second mortgage financing,  lt is proposed to change; the present maximum loan; from $12,800  to $14,200 for single family dwellings with 3 bedrooms or less,  and to $14,900 for, larger dwel-  liras. This change will have the  effect of increasing the loans  and reducing the down payments  on houses worth $15,000 by $700  and for houses worth $16,000  and up by $1,400.  terior and exterior decorating,  plumbing, heating and electrical work. The benefits under this  section were extended to owners of rental properties. Because  of this change, the aggregate  amount of loans that can be  guaranteed under the act has  been increased from $200 million  to $500 million.  SEWAGE FACILITIES  Less than one-sixth of our urban municipalities have adequate sewage plants in operation. Possibly two-thirds of our  urban  population, are  living -in;.  regions where seriously polluted surface waters are found.  Legislation introduced provides  for government loans to municipalities toward the cost of  constructing central- sewerage  plants and'trunk mains. The provisions dp not include loans for  individual house connections.  Any proposal to fall under the  N.H.A. must have provincial approval:  The amount, of the loan is to  be ' limited to two-thirds of the  cost of the. proposed work and  will be repayable by the municipality over a long term of hot  more than 50 years, at a rate  of interest close;to the federal  borrowing rate. Parliament set  aside $100 million for this purpose.  RENTAL HOUSING  On rental housing, the act now  authorizes insured loans of 80%  ol the lending value. To keep  x-ental payments in step with  home ownership building, the  bill raises'this; 80%:: ratio to 85%.  Similarly there are adjustments  to the maximum loan amounts  authorized-; by regulation for the  \arious structural type of dwellings built for rental purposes>  such as row houses, apartments  and triplexes.

SECHELT HIGHWAY  Gibsons Village  LETTERS  to editor  Editor: Would you please correct the impression, gained by  the repox-t in the Dec. 8 Coast  .News, of the ratepayers last  meeting in regards to the church  corner property.  There   were only 10 members  present, who listened to discussion between the representatives  of  the   Gibson   family   and  the  church representative.  Members agreed with the idea  ol the family that the corner  would be very beneficial to the  village as a park site if it could  be bought  by  the village.  The commissioners, present informed the meeting that this  could not be done unless some  organization or organizations requested them to put a bylaw to  that  effect.  It was mentioned, I believe by  the church representative that  the roads had already encroached on the church property, and  would like a little more, and  that possibly if the roads department were approached that  they would pay for what they  needed, making the price of the  land less for the village if the  taxpayers should wish the village to buy.  One member offered to go as  one delegate to Victoria if any  organization or the church should  wish it. The offer was hot taken  up and there was absolutely no  suggestion that the ratepayers  would sell anything. They had,  probably inadvisedly,' attempted  to bring the Gibson family and  the church together.  The ratepayers association  should be represented by a larger number of taxpayers, which  would make it a more _useful  organization. Unfortunately very  few take an interest in the affairs of the village.  There was also an incorrect  statement in Dec. 8 report in  regards to the seaplane float.  There was some discussion but  the meeting decided it did not  know enough about the matter.  M. E. TELFORD  (By Mrs. M. Newman)  Mrs. D.

In  Canada's  northland  there   are  periods-of scarcity followed by  renewal of abundance. These affect all the small animals. The  Arctic Fox, the most important  fur-bearing animal in our Arctic, has a foUr-year cycle similar to that of the lemmings. The  lemming % can increase - from  scarcity to incredible numbers,  and every fourth year there is  an overflow supply. The lynx  reaches a peak about every ten  years at the same time as the  snowshoe rabbit.  from  RICKARD, CRAWFORD & Co,  CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS  Post Office Building ��� Sechelt  P.O.

Since/then we have learned to  harness more manageable sources of powder to do our plowing  and other work, and our stand-  ard of living has never been  higher.

A capacity house, filled Sechelt Elementary School activity  hall on Friday evening, Dec. lo  for the concert which pupils and  parents had helped prepare by  making costumes and supplying  props.  Master of ceremonies, Pat  James, ably introduced the  young artists and the class numbers.  Grade   one  youngsters started  Grade one youngsters san^j  "Good King Wenceslas," did a  wee folk dance and "Skinned the  Snake." They looked very appealing.  Mary Lamb and Dianne Ono  of Grade five combined their  voices to sing "Winter Wonderland." Four stage-hands from  Grade six had meanwhile prepared the setting for the play "The  Shepherd Who Came Too Late."  Peter Poulsen, of grade five, had  the leading role of the lame boy  who tried to journey to Bethle  hem to see the Christ Child.  Everyone enjoyed the choral  reading "What is Christmas?"  by the grade two class, with solo  parts by Donna Wilson. Between  speaking parts, five Christmas  songs were sung with gusto.  The old favorite "Little Women" was presented in a play  "Christmas Breakfast" by the  grade five  girls.

JIM LARKMAN  Radio & TV Store  J & B Store, Gibsons  i  i  _\  Following a short intermission  grade 3 enjoyed singing the  "Chipmunk Song" to the accompaniment of rhythm instruments  and the glockenspeil played by  Barbara Payne. The three perky  chipmunks wanted to keep right  on  singing it!  A variety dance and drill number by some of the grade 6 girls  was. colorful and well executed.  Clare Ann Lawrence, Sharon  Lawson, Donna Nelson and Eileen Nestman of grade 3 recited  'Christmas Decorations" very  well  indeed.  Meanwhile all the grade 4 class  had been waiting to get on the  stage to bake their economical  Christmas dinner,* "Blackbird  Pie." Both they and the audience got a laugh out of it.  Next was Jo Robilliard who  gave .with feeling the beautiful  Christmas story from the Bible.  "The Shepherd Who Couldn't  See the Light" by the rest of the  Grade 6 class was the final play.  The angels sang very sweetly in  this well-presented effort.  The   school  children  and had  made   all  the   murals  and hall  decollations,   with   the   teachers  supplying  only the  ideas.   Mrs.  Wallis accompanied on the piano  *    *     *  AT   HALFMOON   BAY  There was hi jinks at the Halfmoon  Bay school  the   night   of  Dec  18  when  pupils held   their  annual Christmas concert under  ihe direction of Mrs. Surtees assisted by Mrs. McLeod with Mrs.  Doyle at the piano.  Tan Cameron was M.C. and  Frank Kingston gave the opening welcome. The pupils sang  Deck the Halls, the audience  joining in. Elaine Moffat recited a Christmas Song, Leonard  Graves played a violin solo  while the children dressed for  the Nativity Play. The sound of  carols being sung in the distance was heard, then Mary hold  :ng the infant Jesus appeared  with Joseph. Mary laid the baby  in the manger and shepherds appeared and the Three Wise Men  with gifts of frankincense and  myrrh, kneeling before the Holy  Child as they presented their  gilts. A choir of angels appeared in the background and sang  Joy to the World. Tove Hansen  was Mary, Paddy Doyle was  Joseph.  A group of pre-school children  almost stole the show. Tiny girls  and small boys sang two hymns  keeping perfect time to. the music   played   by  Mrs.   McLeod.  Stephen Foley gave a recitation  in a nice clear voice and Danny  McLeod wrote a letter to Santa  Claus. Two  former pupils,  now  high school students,  Janie Helmer  and  Lorraine Moffat sang  the duet Jingle Rock, their voices   blending   well.  The   children  then presentel a school play, "A  Bachelor's    Lonely    Christmas'"  which turned out to be anything  but lonely. Leonard Graves concluded the program with a violin  solo, Silent Night.  The youngsters sang Jingle  Bells and Rudolph the Red-  Nosed Reindeer. A loud knocking at the door heralded the arrival of Santa Claus, laden with  a sack full of gifts. But Santa  had trouble when he tried to sit  down, having eaten too many  whale steaks, his tummy kept.  slipping down..  jV *���'���* ***  , AT  ROBERTS  CREEK  introducing the Roberts Creek  School Christmas Concert, Mrs.  Pall spoke briefly of earlier concerts in the same hall when she  was young, of the big, pot bellied stove which used to stand  in the corner belching flames  when one of the bewhiskered fathers put another chunk of wood  into it.  The Nativity Play performed  by Grades 5 and 6 had been written for them by Mr. McCall, and  has since been accepted for publication by a publishing house.  Mrs. Ball explained this was a  world premiere for "A. Night of  Glory."  Mrs. Galliford's Grades 1 and  2 opened with a clever adaptation of the Teddy BeaTs' Picnic  and the Three Bears. The stage  quickly filled with  small brown  bears all intent on having a  good time. They sang, recited,  and turned somersaults and we  felt really sorry for Baby Bear  when he wasn't allowed to join  them. However, the porridge being too hot, the three Bears decided to go to the picnic after  ali. During their absence their  house was visited by inquisitive  Goldenhair in the person of small  Debbie Marsh. The Bears' return, Baby Bear's most realistic anguish on the discovery of  his broken chair and Golden-  hair's frightened scream as she  ran all the way home brought  the picnic to a close.  Mrs. Warn's Grades 3 and 4  told of Christmas in other lands.  Two Canadian children, Char-  lene Berdahl and Don McKenzie  were visited on Christmas Eve  by a Christmas Tairy, Lynn Paction, who brought children from  far countries, dressed in gay national costumes to tell of their  Christmas traditions with Mrs.  Birkin supplying music.  In between the plays carols  were sung in which the large audience participated.  "A Night of Glory," the story  of the Nativity, proved once  again that children can rise to  the occasion with a maturity beyond their years. These 10 and  11 year olds handled the adult  prose with accuracy and understanding which would have done  credit to a high school cast. The  choir entering from the back of  the hall in candlelit procession  assisted with appropriate carols.  John Gibson, as Eli the narrator, had the responsible position  of holding the whole story together, with long speeches given  with real storyteller charm. The  children, word perfect and assur  ed, could be heard clearly at the  back of the hall.  There was no Christmas tree  this year and no social with refreshments following the concert as there is no PTA. Candy  donated by Mr. Stevens was given to the pre-schoolers and the  youngest  school children.  ���^^^S-^��SJ^��2^  Hr* Management and  1   Standard Motors -.'

GROUNDED   GEESE  For a period of perhaps six  weeks during the summer adult  Canada geese are incapable of  flight, owing to the moulting of  their wing-feathers. At such  time they become much less obvious on the nesting-ground,  sulking in the marsh and brush  where they rarely are seen. By  the time the adults, and,, the  yearling birds that do not breed,  have moulted most of the young  are strong in the wing. Then  family groups gather in flocks  and move slowly south* sometimes remaining. , for several  .weeks in certain^ districts where  &od is obtained safely and in  plenty.

Four of the projects are on  Vancouver Island, including two  in Victoria, four in Greater Vancouver; eight in the Fraser Valley area; one in each of the following centres: Kelowna, Penticton, Kimberley and Westview.

Sechelt 885-2151  HOW TO KILL A COLD  There is only one tried and  true method of getting rid of  a cold. The Health League of  Canada recommends these  Steps. Give a cold prompt attention as soon as it starts.  Stay at home in bed, drink  plenty of water and fruit juices,  eat nourishing meals and stay  out of drafts. That way a cold  will likely only last one day  rather than a week or more  if you ignore it.

Tiny Jimmy Scorgie was the  biggest winner of them all as  he was crowned 50 lb. champion  after he soundly thumped Stephen Tinley of St. Anthony's  who called it* quits after the first  round. For his efforts, Scorgie,  as well as other champs and  runners up, received an engraved trophy.  Eigth-year-old Kenny Verhulst  the other Peninsula Club finalist,  put up a real battle before losing a close decision to Georgio  Colvin in the 55 lb. class.  The other two Peninsula entrants, Jimmy Bothwell and Paddy Beaudoin, were eliminated in  the Friday night draw.  Bothwell, fighting twice due to  the large number of boys entered in the 75 lb. division, looked  very sharp. In his first bout he  handily decisioned Don Turner  from South Hill, but Don Roy of  Vancouver College ended Jimmy's hopes of entering the finals by squeaking out a rather  unpopular decision despite a  puffy right eye.  Beaudoin and Stevie Ayton of  South Hill clashed in the 60 lb.  division in a real crowd pleas-  cr with Ayton getting a hard  fought win.  All in all the kids put on a  very impressive show and promised to be heard from again.  The local club is planning a*  card in January and following  that trainers Frank Zantolas  and Ted Hume will enter a few  boys in the Emerald Gloves on  Jan 21 and 22 in.Vancouver.    ;  E & St BOWLADROME  By Ed Connor  High  team three goes to  the  Men's   League   with   2817   and  Oops of the Gibsons Mixed "B"  topped high team single with 982  Sig Rise topped the week with  ���a   nice   high   three   game   total  of. 7789,  followed by   J.
