The Hospital Improvement District plebiscite on the Sunshine  Coast Monday revealed an undisputable decision that landowners  were definitely in favor of taking the first step towards establishment of a hospital in this district.  In a smooth:running vote at all polls, returning officers at the  more populated points were faced with a rush at times which they did  not expect. However when the vote was counted it showed 1,477 in _  favor and 205 against.

The disturbance was created  by three spectators who were  not residents of this area. RCMP  took down the names of the  trio then they were told to leave.  when a home was gutted. It is  believed to have started in a  chesterfield, shortly before 8:15  while occupants of the house  were away.  The house, of new construction,  on Abs road off School road, was  found in flames when the occupants, Mr. and Mrs. James Mc-  Vicar returned after having been  absent   for   about   three   hours.  The inside of the house was  badly damaged. The alarm was  sounded at 8:15 and the Gibsons  Volunteer Fire Brigade responded quickly.  The   house   was   a   four-room  single storey with basement and  was   completely  gutted  inside.  The house was   built  this  year  and occupied just a few months.  prograih, I wish, also to stress  the need for particular consideration with regard to Senior citizens, many of whom are handicapped by advancing years and  are unable to cope with the hazards of modern traffic.

When the real estate slump  hit the province it hit Totem  Realty hard, Mr. Oliver said,  and it turned out that money for  salesmen and advertising was to  some extent money which belonged to his clients.. Apparently he had not distinguished between client money and other  income because it all went into  the same pot.  As soon as Mr. Wilson realized he was in .financial difficulty  he 'followed a wise course and.  consulted his solicitors and told  them, of his situation, which resulted in an audit, Mr. Oliver  continued.  As soon as Mr. Wilson found  out clients' money was involved  he put all his assets at the disposal  of  trustees   for the bene-  tit of his creditors. All this was  done before any question of criminal proceedings and months be-  - fore charges were involved.

(Article 3)  There are several wells, varying from 60 to 90 feet deep, in  holdings along the Pratt Road,  which penetrate through loose  clay, sand and gravel, some too  loose to hold water, throughout  their entire depths. The deepest,  dug by the Kullander family on  what is now the property of Norman Hough, struck a belt of pure  sand at a depth of 90 feet.  Since there exists nearby no  watercourse which could have  laid down such a deoosit of all  uvium, the only explanation for  its- existence is that it was deposited there, as were most of  the barren soils of t'ie area, by  the action   of glaciers.  Even if the melting of this  tremendous thickness, of ice,  blanketing the entire Pacific littoral far south of here, was  seemingly slow, the run off during the warm times of the year  must have been extremely heavy-  for scientists now believe that  the northern hemisphere warmed comparatively quickly after  the last ice age.  The hospital district vote  The plebiscite for a Hospital Improvement District for the Sunshine Coast area drew a whopping vote with a whopping majority.  From this one can see that if the public makes up its mind to  get out and vote, it can by using democratic means really speak with  a firm yet unmistakeable voice.  The result of the vote will be gratifying to the committee which  for more than a year has been working hard towards having this  plebiscite placed before the populace so it could express its opinion.  Early returns showed there was considerable strength in the  vote in favor of forming a Hospital District. It also showed there  was a quiet determination which had set, apparently some time ago.  Arguments against a move towards having a hospital right here on  the Sunshine Coast apparently do not carry the weight some people  anticipated.  Those who voted in favor of the plebiscite may not realize it but  they have made the hard-working committee members, who fostered the hospital district idea, a very happy aggregation of men ��� men  who devoted their time without any thought of personal gain. To them  the best expression of thanks is the result of the plebiscite.  Halfmoon Bay area really showed its attitude with a 90 to 1 vote  in favor and maybe many of the people in that area will wonder who  that lone opposition vote came from. Port Mellon provided a 100 percent vote with 41 in favor and none against. However the strongest  votes in favor came from- the two villages with Gibsons supplying  560 for and 52 against while Sechelt voted 384 in favor and 9 against.  It was natural the opposition should be strongest in the area  where the present St. Mary's hospital now stands but that opposition was not strong enough. Total vote beyond Sechelt area was 205  for and 121 against.  So, landowners of. the Sunshine Coast, you have spoken in no uncertain voice and the future contains sufficient promise so that the  committee will not have to browbeat people into helping out the cause.  The vote shows there are too many people who favor the hospital  idea. Volunteers should be numerous.  ���the' ThtiM 'thai Comet Once in a Lifetime  ASftb&fyCXiSC  Mass petition planned  , Members of the Peninsula  Committee on Radiation Hazards have followed with interest the progress made by Voice  of Women.

David Fulton trying to come to terms with Premier Bennett of British Columbia, resulting in the opportune disappearance  fit Mr. Bennett without explanation.  Coupled with this is a story that appeared in a Vancouver newspaper headed "Huge Electric Network Forecast." It was an Associated Press story from Seattle and was as follows:  ;��� ''A giant power  system, linking the Pacific Northwest  :     with Canada, the Missouri Valley and southern California by  1970, was forecast here Friday by Gus Norwood, executive  secretary of the Northwest Public Power Association.  "Norwood, of Vancouver, Wash., said the system should  include transmission lines of 460,000 to 500,000 volts and 500,000  to 800,000-kilowatt generators."  When Arthur Laing, former Liberal leader in B. C. addressed  the Kiwanis club in Gibsons, some months ago,, the editor of the Coast  Hews asked Mr. Laing who was speaking on the power situation in  British Columbia, if Mr. Laing did not think there was a possible  iSCheme afoot towards some sort of control of a giant poWer grid,  including B. C. and parts of the United States. Mr. Laing did not  think such a scheme was involved.  Mr. Laing could be right, but in view of the Seattle story and  Mr. Bennett's reluctance to face up to Mr. Fulton at this time, a suspicion, and a natural one, Juries that the wealthy Wenner-Gren interests with a vast Peace River development could quite easily hold  the balance of power, if the term can be used, in such a giant.  This publication is convinced there is a great deal involved in  fte Wenner-Gren and Columbia River projects, more than just building two power systems. There is considerable jockeying now going  pn and Mr. Bennett's disappearing act does little towards killing this  idea. Tieing in with a huge power grid taking in a wide area in the  .United States, is a prize which will have its financial reward.

Are the Eskimo a separate  race?  From the early days of Arctic  exploration,  scholars have  debated   whether   the   Eskimo  constitute a separate race distinct    from    other    American  that moved into a unique en-  aborigines or. whether they are  merely a branch of our Indians  yironment and developed their  own appearance, language and  ways of life; Until the late 19th  century, "Europeans had  come  into   close   contact   with   the  Eskimo mainly at the extreme  limits of their range ���:-��� Alaska  on one side and Greenland and  Labrador on the other ��� and  they   had   assumed   that   the  physical type, the language and  the   customs were   fairly   uniform everywhere. This is now  known to be incorrect. In Alaska, and even in Canada which.;  contains less than a fifth of ths  total^ Eskimo population; there  have' been discovered   marked  differences between groups in;;  different     areas,      differences;  that suggest a. complex history ;  extending over many thousands I  of yearsr and  an origin  from  more than :one racial: strain.  What is albertite?  It is a jet-black, asphaltic  mineral with a higSi gas content that was discovered in Albert County, New Brunswick,  in the mid-19th century. It  took its name from the area in  which it was discovered. Over,  the years more than 200,000  tons of albertite were exported. Most of it went to gas  works in Boston.  Who was Eugene Bourgeau?  He was the first botanist to  examine the Canadian Rocky  Mountain area south of Atha-  baska Pass and the prairie region ^south of the North Saskatchewan River. Bourgeau,  was born in France in 1813;  the son of a sfoeep farmer. He  was self-educated 'but his aptitude for botany led to his employment in the botanical garden in Lyons. From there he  went to Paris where he became  a collector of specimens for a  botanical society. In 1857 the  British government appointed  him botanist to the Palliser expedition to the Northwest. After returning to Europe in 1859  he made collecting expeditions  to Asia Miner and to Mexico.  He died in Paris in 1877.  Voice o f Women declares that  the  destructive capacity  of  nuclear,    thermonuclear   and   biological   weapons,   unleashed   in  war, could annihilate civilization  as we know it, and probably lead  to the extinction of life  on this  planet. It follows such a war is  unthinkable and insane. It is an  outrage on the human  spirit to  be forced to raise our children  under the gross tensions of the  cold war. Voice of  Women  ap-  peals   to   all  governments   and  1  peoples to join in this declaration and calls on the women of  Canada  to protest against war,  % or the threat of war, as a means  of solving world problems,  and  to give leadership to the women  of the world in such a protest.  Many well known names appear  on the list of honorary sponsors  and officials of the central committee, including Mrs. Lester B.  Pearson, Mrs. Hazen Argue, Senator Marianne Jodoin, Mrs. Fred  Davis,  Mrs.  Pierre Berton, anl  Miss  June  Call wood.  Plans of V. O.

On the Peninsula, Chapman and Wilson Creeks have  brought down considerable deltas, a portion of which was inundated by a flash flood as recently as 1955.  . ���   .    ���*.*���**..  It seems incredible today that,  the gravel beds at the mouth of  Langdale  Creek, and particularly  those at  Hillside,   along Dakota    and    Whitewater    Creeks  could have been created by these  streams.  At the   time  of   their  formation, the run-off down these  waterways must have been many  times the vo|Ume of their maximum flow today, as the gigantic  ice-sheet gave out its unceasing  supply   of water.   The<se   gravel  beds are too  completely  stratified to be accounted for by glacial  action,   which   would  have  left  a   conglomeration of  sand,  gravel and boulders, as was done  at  places   previously mentioned  here.  * *    *  The difference in coarseness  of successive layers in these beds  can most likely be accounted for  by variations, from season to  season, and from year to year,  in the amount of run-off, and by  the extent to which its flow was  impeded by ice and glacial till.  Layers of finest sand would be  deposited by slow-moving water,  and coarse sand and gravel by  rapidly moving water. Many of  the clay deposits of the area ���  could also have been laid down  in this way.  Streams between II o p k i n s  Landing and Roberts Creek, had  to run from the flank of Mt. Elphinstone to the beach, over the  great mass of gravel, sand and  clay pushed there by the receded ice sheet. Although these watercourses are doing very little  eroding today, during the time  cf glacial run-off they had sufficient volume to di<? sizeable  channels for themselves. While  many of these ravines extend  for Some distance up the mountainside, some streams, towards  the end of the run-off, lacked sufficient water to complete their  channels.  * *    *  Probably the best example of  such an occurrence is the great  i a vine which ends abruptly in  soft  clay in  two forks,  one   at  Suits tailored  (o pur measure  PROMPT DELIVERY  GUARANTEED TO FIT  Marine Men's Wear  Ltd.

Had these  channels been the work of glacial action they would undoubtedly have been continued farther  inland through their easily-eroded beds.  Many other even much shorter canyons, some of them only  a few hundred yards in length,  and still being cut slowly deeper  at their upper ends, are to be  found all along this stretch of  the coast. One, just west of the  foot of Pratt Road, ate its way  inland in 1946, cutting through  Marine Drive in the process.  Action of tidal currents and  storms have been sufficiently  strong to prevent these ���- streams  from forming any sizeable deltas  (To be continued)  INTRODUCE THE  GOOD NEWS BY  it  So many things to  share when there's  a new baby in the  house.1 Friendly  things, funny things  ���"He looks just like  you!"

The subject: "To  Smoke or Not to Smoke."  Winners of more than $600 in  prizes will be announced December 16.  Among the 226 finalists selected by school principals, nearly  all present both sides of the  question, but agree that the dangers to health, the.expen.se, the  messiness, and the hazards of  bedroom and forest fires far  outweigh any possible advantages of "calming nerves" or "looking mature."  Only one of the finalists, an  entry from Whitehorse, undertook to defend the habit throughout his essay.  Judges, have been impressed  with the scope of knowledge, interest and research shown by  students in preparing their essays. In addition to educational  . pamphlets available from the  ��� Cancer Society, references range  over recent national magazine  articles, medical journals and  even books on motivational research, such as "The Hidden  Persuaders."  Several students refericd to a  recent court case in the United  States in which a woman sought  damages from a cigarrt company  for the death of her husband  from lung cancer.  Martin Horswill, a student- at  L. V. Rogers High School in Nelson, suggested smoking education should start in grade one  with posters ridiculing smoking  displayed in classrooms.

Members of the Halfmoon Bay  Hospital Auxiliary enjoyed a delightful smorgasbord at the home  of  their   president,   Mrs.  Eileen  Smith, Secret Cove, on Dec. 11.  The long table laden with  platters of turkey, ham, colorful salads, pickles and olives was most  attractive, illumined by the glow  of tall red tapers in brass holders,  surrounded with  small  colored balls and a row of tiny golden winged angels carrying miniature red candles.  Everyone   did   justice   to   the  feast    enjoying   cake    and   ice  ' cream  with   coffee   and  tea   as  dessert.   There   was   a   contest,  first   prize   going   to   Mrs.    P.

Money involved in these charges was not taken for personal  enrichment. The situation arose  from bad business practices, inexperience and bad accounting,  Mr. Oliver said.  Speaking of Mr. Wilson's activities in Gibsons area, Mr.  Oliver said Mr. Wilson had done a  great  deal towards building  up  the area and making it  known  to the public. He was a community-minded man and used every  endeavour he cuold to serve his  community. He was secretary ot  the   Scout   association   for   five  years,   organized   and    became  president   of the   Kiwanis   club,  was Gibsons Board of Trade secretary for several years,   chairman of the Sechelt-Gibsons Air- :  port    committee, " and    Gibsons  area   Centennial  committee.   He  was also a member of Gibsons  village council and chairman of .  council's   finance committee.  At this time Mr. Oliver called  on   character   witnesses.

Wilson's, former Vancouver  neighbors.  Crown   counsel   confined   himself   during this   period   of   the  case to making corrective state-,  ments  or   obtaining   substantiation to remarks by  witnesses.  Addressing  the   court   in   respect to sentence for Mr. Wilson,  Mr. Oliver pointed out that restitution had   been made in  full  from the Wilson assets and that.  Mr. Wilson had voluntarily surv  rendered his licence before any  hearings   started.    The   circumstances now   are -such that Mr.  Wilson is a ruined'man, the sav?  ings of a lifetime having gone to  making restitution. Now. Mr. Wil  son plans to pay off what minor  debts there are left, Mr. Qliver  said. These debts would not be  of   the  type   involved   in   trust  funds.  Mr.  Wilson   hoped that  some day he woiild be able to  say all his debts had been paid  in full, Mr. Oliver said.  Mr. Wilsbn' was 66 years old,  Mr. Oliver continued and from  1930 to 1950 he had worked for  the Hoover company in Vancouver, and retired as the result of  a nervous breakdown, moving to  Gibsons. Today he has forfeited  the position he had built up in  the community-dear to him for  many years.

McKenzie, chairman of  the British Columbia Amateur  Sports council has announced  that the council had approved a  grant of $1,000 to the western  division of the Canadian Amateur Ski association. The money  was earmarked specifically to  assist in sending four outstanding British Columbia skiers to  train and compete in Europe during the coming winter months.  The skiers selected were Nancy  Greene and Verne Anderson,  both of Rossland, and Roddy  Hebron and Al Perrett, both of  Vancouver,  The board of directors of the  council also approved unanimously a brief containing proposals for the encouragement  and development of amateur  sport in the province.  The   secretary,   W.   H.   Day,  was   directed to  seek   air audi- '  ence with.the Provincial Cabinet  at their earliest convenience, in  order  that  this timely and important subject  may  be discussed during the  forthcoming sit-'  ting of the legislature.  The meeting noted with interest the. newspaper editorial deal*  ing with a speech given by Mr.  L J;. Wallace of Victoria, a member of the board, on the importance of provincewide support of  the objectives of the council;.  This speech was published in the  Coast News Nov. 17.  . LETTEmAA'  to editor  The following letter, addressed  lo  the Sechelt Board  of Trade,  was also sent to the Coast News:  Editor:   I read, with great interest,   in  the   Dec.   1 issue   of  Coast  News,   that   the  contract  for  the completion of your airport   has    been   awarded.   This  shows great foresight on the part  of all concerned with the project.  As  you   are   aware,  Cassidair  Services has a' float plane based at Sechelt, and we were operating a five times daily scheduled flight between Nanaimo and  Vancouver,   using   seven   place,  twin-engined aircraft.  March 1, we will be starting  this run again, and if your airport will be finished by then-, we  would very much hke to operate  at least one flight per day  through Sechelt. This would supply people in Jervis. Inlet with a  float plane service to Sechelt,  and scheduled airline service to  either Vancouver or Nanaimo.  Needless to say, the tourist  potential would be greatly enlarged with Winnipeg only four  hours away, Edmonton three,  and Toronto about six. The  chance of a stepped up mail  service (letters mailed in Montreal in the morning would be in  Sechelt before noon), fast express service, and emergency  use (drugs, stretcher cases) are  only a few of the advantages, ,  not to mention the economic vat  ue to your community.  I would be most pleased if you  would let me have your opinions  on such a service as well as any  public reaction that might be  forth-coming, I think that all the  people living in your area would  like to be only 10 minutes from  . either Vancouver or Nanaimo.

Farmer   David   Monteith  of  the    Mount    Nebo  district  of  '���west     central      Saskatchewan  needed some dams built. So he  turned the 30b over to the most  adept" dam, -builders   he   could  find ������ beavers. Nineteen years  ajsjfeA. when framers in  his  dis-  y0$c%fewere faced with a serious  j��pro*blem, Monteith was author-  f^ized to construct a dam across  *   the   Shell   River .to  raise  the  water   level.   He  told   government officials he had a better,  cheaper    arid    easier    method  than hiring a construction company. "All I need is a supply  of poplar," he said.    -  Two wagon loads of poplar  were dropped into the river at  the Monteith farm; Almost immediately, the few beavers iri  the dwindling stream took  oyer. They converted the poplar with mud and rocks, into a  'StrongTBarrier to hold the wa  ter back. An appreciable rise in  water   level   was scon noted.  Now   two   main   dams and   a  series of support dams on the  river assure a plentiful supply  of water for Monteith s cattle  and many other herds in the  area.  To obtain maximum benefit  from the beaver ponds and  prevent flooding, the farmer  watches and regulates the  levels in the river. In late June  each year he dynamites support dams in places where high  water threatens damage to low-  lying land. As the water slowly drains away it leaves a rich  deposit of} -fertile silt ideally  suited for grazing and hay  crops. Last year he cut 50 tons  of hay from the-beaver ttiea-  dows along the river.

Historians^: have launched an  appeal to the forest industries  of British Columbia for assistance in searching out documents and artifacts which will  help to preserve the glamorous  past of B. C.'s timber industry.  The appeal was made at a forest history seminar held at the  University of British Columbia  on Nov. 22. Harold S. Foley,  chairman of the seminar, and  G. H. Gallaway were hosts at  a luncheon at which the provincial archivist, Willard Ireland,  was guest speaker.  24-hour  Towin  Peninsula Motors  Wilson Creek, B.C.  Ph. 885-2111 (daytime)  Ph. 885-2155 (nights)  Ph. 886-2603 (nights)  The seminar was sponsored by  the forest industry,   the tfniver?  sity of British Columbia and the  forest History Society Inc.* The  society was represented by its  president, Bernard L. Orell, vice-  president of Wyerhauser Timber  Company at Tacoma, and El-  wood R. Maunder of St. Paul,  Minnesota, director of the society.  An exhibit of historical data,  including photographs, old record books, and equipment of  early days was set up for the  seminar. Material was contributed by MacMillan, Bloedel and  Powell River, Crown Zellerbach,  Canadian Forest Products, and  G. E. Wellburn of Duncan who  has an extensive museum of  forest relics.  Chairman of the panel was  Dean George S. Allen, faculty  of forestry and panelists were:  Dr. C. D. Orchard of Victoria,  former deputy minister and chief  forester; Joseph Lawrence of the  University's history department;  and Dr. Roderick Haig-Brown,  noted B. C. author. All speakers  agreed that the most perishable  data were the personal stories of  se  Roberts Creek Legion  SMORGASBOM and SOCIAL  NEW YEAR'S EVE  ROBERTS CREEK COMMUNITY HALL  STARTING AT  7 p.m.  TICKETS NOW ON SALE  the industry's pioneers and that  every effort should be made tb  record them.  In many cases the history of  the forest industries has been the  history of the province, and  much of this colorful past has  already, been  lost   to   posterity.  What is needed? Physical relics of obsolete equipment, old  photographs, old company documents and recorded personal  interviews with experienced old  timers.  Before discarding old records,  companies are urged to have the  material checked by an archivist or historian, as many of the  significant details are only obvious to the expert.  Companies wishing to develop  their own archives, should assign  responsibility to a senior executive. There are many fine company library-archives in United  States and a few in. Canada  which can serve as examples.  The task would include searching old files, tape recording interviews with key figures at all  levels, and salvaging old maps,  logging layouts, etc.  Mr. Maunder announced, on  behalf of the Forest Industry Society, that the University of  British Columbia library and the  Provincial archives are authorized repositories for historical  data from the industry.

It is  true, dark-gray, fierce-looking  clouds came in great masses and  covered all the sky and let down  dren. But the children also wished for bright clouds and the old  bear in the sky heard their  wishes.  "So the old bear 'oiew his  moist breath into the heavy  clouds and broke them up; he  even made humps in some of  them, and held on to the corners of others, until when they  passed over the village, each  cloud had a different sliape,  some like bears, some like wild  cats, some like hills and even  some like funny people. Ever  afterward, the clouds took these  strange shapes to bring smiles  and imagination to all children  in  midwinter.'.'  JOYOUS RECITATION  St. Francis of Assisi is accredited as having been one of  the first to popularise the custom of singing carols at Christmas time. He taught the faithful simple and tuneful melodies, and the raying goes that,  overjoyed by the success* attending his presentation of the  first Christmas. Crib hi 1223,  he burst into joyous vocal recitation cf the gospel story.  FORBADE CAROLS  Puritan England forbade  public performance of carols;  so for a while they travelled  "underground" by word of  mouth, and "broad sheets,"*  printed annually, served to  preserve the texts with a variance of accuracy.

Communities large and small have their  outdoor lighted trees, and it  would be difficult to find a city  with lovelier trees than- Winnipeg. The citizens of Paris,  France, are credited with the  first lighted community tree in  the nineteenth century. This was  erected in the Tuileries and candles provided  the lights.  The idea of a lighted outdoor  tree did not spread quickly to  other lands because of the problem of preventing a fire from  lighted candles on an evergreen. Electricity solved this  difficulty. The people of Denver,  Colorado, believe they  can  it the tree of the Christ-child..  Take it up and carry it to the  Chief tan's, hall. This is the  Christ's birth-night. We shall  keep it, not in the forest, but  in the home with laughter and  song."  Another story which is told  is about Martin Luther cutting  down a small tree, carrying it  into his home, and placing candles on it. He called his children  to see how lovely it was and  compared the little candle flames  to the stars blazing in the sky  and to Christ the Light of the  World.

A frosty stillness was on the  woods when I stepped in off  the beaten path at sunrise.  Nothing moved or made a  sound; if a frond of dead bracken had stirred it would have  crackled and broken the spell.  The little people of the  woods   were   waiting  for  the  jk������s������*smks!^^ day to be aired before they re  <j| ��ponded to the rising sun that  had already fired the high tops  of the firs and was painting a  band of rich mahogany-red  down their trunks. But the  silence was soon broken: far  away to the southward a woodpecker found a favorite sounding-board on some shell of fire-  killed cedar and beat a vigorous tattoo that came through  the still, cold air with the note  of a marimba, and received a  shrill call from the opposite direction in answer.  It reminded me of my own  purpose and why I was carrying a heavy axe into the woods:  I was looking for a standing  snag of that same dry cedar  to cut up for a stock of kindling-wood, though the slightest  excuse is enough to send me  amongst the trees that I regard  as a valuable feature of the  place���and' not for their board-  feet rating.

I get more than fuel from  my woods; at any time of year,  it is recreative to turn one's  back on the weeds and "bugs"  and the work-and-worry of an  overgrown garden and fade into the forest for a -spell, to  note how nature manages to  grow something well and in  great variety on every square  foot space, and no fuss over it  at all! Here is no digging and  hoeing and stooping, no costly  fertilizing and spraying, but  just the annual return of used  organic* matter that builds up  on the forest floor to a mulch  that is as kindly to old feet as  it is protective to the rpotstocks  of the least groundlings that  show in spring and fade in  winter:  It might be said that this  wild growth in the woods is of  no value: over many years we  proved that it is; with a little  of that management that is  true human business it fed  sheep and goats and through  them gave us meat and wool  and milk���and without knocking down every tree in the  country.

SIGNS
Sign writers might be a little careful to say exactly what
they mean. Recently a street
sign appeared where the middle of the road on a one-way
street was temporarily blocked:
The sign said loudly, "Use
both lanes.".
The question is whether any
motorist could successfully use
both) lanes. Why not "U e
either lane?"
Medical doctors, with ail
their knowledge and experience, might also note directions
they give on the bottle. "Take
one pill three times a day" is
the usual direction. How can
one take one pill three times?
Why not "After each meal,
taKe one pill?" After all, regurgitation iis desirable only in
emergencies.

answer to a question about the
arming of certain weapons,
"They'll be armed with the

destruction of the west, but the

GETTING RID OF CHILDREN
The kitchen sink is one of
the few places where a man
and his wife can meet to have
an uninterrupted discussion
and without much danger of
being overheard by their children, as the thought of dishes
to be washed tends to make
children strangely invisible.
PEOPLE MAKE PROBLEMS
An official statement regarding congestion in the Welland
Canal has it that the difficulty
is due "largely to the unusual
number of ships on hand for
the opening of the St. Lawrence
Seaway." It is reported by the
police chief of every town
where there is a traffic problem that the reason for the traffic problem is the number of
cars trying to get to a certain
place by a certain time.
In the public relations business it long has been noted that
if there were no people there
would be no problem. +.■.

HOME-TOWN AUDIENCE
A great philosopher, who
comes from a very small place
called here Jonesbury, recently made up a little essay for an
intimate social gathering. He
wrote the thing in a corner of
the room while the program
was going on, and then he got
up and read it. It was fairly
poor, although suitable to the
festivities. There even was
some applause.
A great friend of the famous
philosopher   ; from    Jonesbury
got hold of the manuscript and
turned it over to a newspaper
editor, who ran it in good faith.
The thing looked even worse in
print.    The    philosopher could
scarcely   bear   to   read   it
through.    His   friend  and   the
editor began to feel they  had
done him harm and they went
to tell him so. They were worried     lest     critics  around the
world  might see the  item,   or
hear how bad it was, and believe    the    great    philosopher
from Jonesbury was slipping.
"It's not the critics I'm worried   about,"   he   said;   "what
bothers  me  is  that   somebody
from Jonesbury might see  the
thing."
SEED   CONES
British Columbia's evergreen
forests produced the best crop
of cones in 10 years last fall.
But 1960 looks like a lean
year. Is this to be expected
after a bumper year? Foresters
are not certain, but agree that
it is "a possibility.
Seeds from the cones are
sewn  in  cutover areas by for
estry crews or turned over to
the B.C. Forest Service nurseries for development into seedlings — tiny trees — for later
planting.
Seeds can be stored as long
as five years. They must be
collected from areas comparable in climate and elevation
to those where it is planned to
plant   them.

recent Home Oil Distributors

The figures arrived at by

reveal an increase of 847,000
persons over the 1956 census
figure, or an increase of around
61 percent.
Tlie calculations also showed
the natural increase in birth

He. found pike, dog-fish, salmon, sturgeon, tunny and blue  shark to be among the fastest  of fish, and some typical speeds  he recorded are: salmon 11 mph;  tunny 14 mph; and blue shark  2-1 mph; all of them normal, rather   than   emergency   speeds.  Salmon have attracted more  speed   investigations   than    any  ether fish, and a French expert  who coaxed fish along a specially built track in the River Vienne  found the salmon an easy first,  at about 18 mph. The highest recorded speed for a salmon is 25  mph, although some authorities  claim that it has been known to  swim  even   faster.  All fish speeds, by the way,  should be regarded against the  world speed record for a human  swimmer, which is 4.01 mph.  It is not very comfortable to  know that even the lumbering  octopus travels along at 4 mph.  The most popular radio and  TV program ever to originate in  Canada is now in its 25th year.  It is Imperial Oil's hockey  broadcast, which first went out  over the newly formed CBC network on November 7, 1936.'  Twenty-six stations carried  the first Imperial broadcast to  an. estimated two million people. Last' year eight million listened to and watched the final  game of the 1959-60 season over  53 radio and  53 TV stations.  Foster Hewitt, who at 57 is  possibly the world's most know  ledgeable   hockey reporter,   has  participated    in    roughly    3,500  games for  Imperial Oil.  The first National Hockey  League game televised in Canada was between Montreal Can-  adiens and Detroit Red Wings in  Montreal Forum, October 11,  1S52. Three weeks later, Toronto Maple Leafs played Boston  Bruins in the first televised  game in Toronto's Maple Leaf  Gardens.  Furthermore, as hockey's  fiery sage and Maple Leaf owner   Conn   Smythe   predicted   at  "Oh, Silent Night!9  Carolling forth our  sincere best wishes  for a beautiful Christmas.  Don, Marg and Tom  Canadian TV's inauguration, tele  vision has boosted game attendance to an all-time high. "There  will be thousands of people for  the first time seeing hockey as  played by the pros," Smythe  predicted in 1952. "They'll be  sold on it because it's a great  game and they won't be satisfied to stay home but will turn  out at the rinks."  "As I look back over those  years, I recall that several similar incidents have characterized my long career as a hockey  broadcaster," Foster Hewitt  said. "Once I mentioned that I  never wore a hat. Within a week.  1 had received five hatracks" and  two brand new hats from my listeners.  "I have broadcast over 3,500  hockey games ��� and I've been  accused of doing just about everything. I've been called a homer ��� that is, the criticism was  that I favored my home team,  Toronto Maple Leafs. Then,  practically simultaneously, I've  received steaming letters,' condemning me because I was  against the Leafs!

Although research at the federal research station in Fred-  erictcn, N.B., has been carried  on since 1934, it is only in recent years that the effort has  become concentrated. Potato  growers, shippers and provincial government and the federal government as well, are  all concerned with the decreasing per capita potato consumption.  And they are all doing something to bring back to greater  favor a vegetaible that is inexpensive, and a reliable  source of vitamins C and B,  iron and other minerals.

E  vision ��� have made remarkable  progress in the three decades  that I have been doing them. I  can remember in the 1920's doing the first long-distance remote broadcast under the most  primitive conditions.  "I described a game in Hamilton. It was piped, via telephone, to the station in Toronto.  The broadcast went well, except  when the telephone operator cut  into my party line to answer  subscribers' calls, startling listeners   with:    'Number,  please.'  "I still recall, as do hundreds  of Canadians, my toughest hockey broadcast ��� describing the  memorable, marathon playoff  between Boston and Toronto in  1933. It went into six overtime  periods, stretching from 8:30  p.m. until 2 a.m.  "I was in a daze by the end  of that game ��� and the players were on the verge of collapse. The arena had become unbearably warm and I sweated  off eight pounds in those five-  and-a-half hours.  "The biggest change in hockey broadcasting was the introduction of television. Many of  my friends and colleagues cautioned me not to tackle TV. However, the warnings proved unfounded because with only a little experimenting we found the  right formula ��� the same one  we've always used in radio:  simplicity.  "Hockey has never been as  popular as it is today. The NHL's  arenas are full for every game.  Our listening and viewing audience is bigger than ever. Hockey is a great game; it's been  good to me and I hope to be a  part of it for many years to  come."  s? . .  8? *.. ��� ���    .

MORGAN  The B.C. Forest Service today cautioned Yuletide loggers  in the coastal areas of B.C. intending to cut their own Christmas trees.  "The best advice we can  give," a forest officer said, "is  to leave that axe at home and  buy your tree from a lot down  town. It will probably be much  cheaper in the long run."  A very careful check of unauthorized Christmas - tree cut-  ing is going to be made for the  next few weeks.  The only way one can safely  acquire a tree by cutting it is  to first obtain written permis-  i:*ion from the owner of the  land on which) the tree is growing. This written permission  should be kept with one at all  times for presentation to the  R.C.M.P. in the event one is  questioned at a 'highway checkpoint.  Also, in the event a "considerable number of trees are  cut," even with permission, it  may be assumed some or all  are for sale in wihich case the  owner   of   the   land   will   be  charged   the   appropriate   rate  of royalty.  The Forest Service issues no  permits or permissions to cut  Christmas trees on Crown  lands on the coast, Which includes all of Vancouver Island  and the southern mainland  west of the Cascade mountains,  as well as all the islands in the  Gulf of Georgia. The service also does not "offer suggestions"  as to where trees can be  cut.  Forest officers point out  that the growing sites on the  coast are generally of such  high* quality that to cut a young'  fir for a Christmas tr*>e*  amounts to a tragic. waste  when, in another few years,  that tree would be worth to the  Province 100 times as much as  pulp or lumber.  What private land-owners do  with their young forest crop is,  of course, their business, just  so long a�� royalty payments  are made on commercial transactions.  "The Christmas-tree business  is a perfectly legitimate one 'in  its  place," the service  spokes  man continued, "but that place,  insofar as Crown land ie concerned, is limited to certain  low-quality growing sites in  the interior of the povince."  Total  value of the industry  in 1959 amounted to $1,063,-  000 for some 2,000,000 Christmas trees harvested commercially for export, the vast majority of which originated in  the interior under permit.

B of M assets rose moiv than  $225 million to $3,485 million during the year, while loans in all  categories maintained the 1959  peak of $1,773 million.  Total deposits were shown at  $3,200 million, an increase of  $202 million or 6.7 percent, from  1959, and were the highest in  the bank's history. The expansion was largely attributable to  Canadians' personal sevings and  to foreign  deposits.  Quick assets of $1,771 million,  or $193 million more than a year  earlier, reflected the traditionally strong liquid position of the  bank. This amount represents almost 54 percent of all B of M  liabilities to the public, against  51.6 percent in 1959.  Earnings before taxes were at  the record figure of $31,578,780.  But $17,352,044, equal to 55 percent, was earmarked for taxes,  so that the net profit tor the  year's operations of more than  840 B of M offices at home and  abroad was $14,226,736. This was  $2,035,6776 more than in 1959.  Asbestos  for roads  Engineers have come up with  an idea to take many of the  wrinkles out of streets. The same  idea also promises to reduce the  incidence of cracks, pot holes  and many of the road ills which  make driving unpleasant. The  secret ingredient is asbestos  fibre.  The most common reasons for  failure of paved surfaces is lack  of flexural strength. Road engineers have long realized that  if more asphalt (the liquid binder that holds the aggregates together) could be added to the  paving mix, the needed flexibility could be provided. But it  isn't quite as simple as that.  The normal asptialtic mix contains about six percent asphalt.  Addition of more than that amount robs the surface of stability.   ������������'*���>  Canadian Johns-Manville engineers, working on this problem some years ago came up  with the idea that by adding asbestos fibres to the asphalt mix,  it would be possible, to add as  much as eight percent of asphalt��� an increase of one-third.  They tried their idea on a  stretch of road at the Canadian  Johns-Manville asbestos mine at  Asbestos, Quebec. The road, laid  in 1953 carried a steady stream  of 30-ton ore trucks hauling asbestos ore from the open pit  mine to the mill. By 1958, they  found it necessary to resurface  those portions which did not contain asbestos, The asbestos asphalt section was still in excellent shape.  Since then, Canadian J-M engineers have supervised test installations of asbestos asphalt  paving at many points..  How much does it cost? Relatively little. On the basis of work'  done so far, the tetal additional  cost works out at slightly more  than a dollar a ton of asphalt  mix. Acceptance of asbestos as- ...  phalt would mean a big boom  for asbestos production, and  most of the free world's known  asbestos deposits happen to be  located in Canada.  The bank's 21,000 shareholders  are receiving $2 per share, or  '$12,148,167 of the year's net profit, 15 cents, more than the 1959  figure of $1.85, and 35 cents  more than the $1.65 paid in 1958.  The balance, plus $1,072,290 of  undivided profits from 1959, comprised a total of $3,150,859. Of  this amount, $2 million was trans  ferred to the rest account, leaving current undivided profits of  $1,150,859.  The transfer of $2 million from  undivided profits brought the B  of M's reserve account to $141,-  ��50,000. This, plus paid-up capital of $60,750,000 and the remaining undivided profits, brought total shareholders' equity to the  record figure of $203,750,859.  A sharp increase oi more than  ���IS percent in the statement's  valuation of B of M premises,  from $47 million in 1959 to more  than $55 million, reflected completion of the bank's new head-  office building in Montreal, as  well as the continuing rapid pace  of branch extension and modernization.  59?

Automobile  Association, in consultation with  medical authorities, to describe  cardial   symptoms   so   afflicted  ������-���.   i  |oy To Al-U  George and   Waller Flay  Barber Shop  drivers may get off the highway  and avoid a serious accident.  A steady pain in the centre of  the chest may be a warning to  pull over to the side of the road.  This kind of pain, which can  seize anyone regardless of age,  will sometimes radiate from the  centre of the chest into the arms  or neck. It could indicate a heart  attack is taking place.  Drivers who become aware of  such pain and who, in particular, have had a previous history  of chest pain (angina pectoris)  should for their own safety and  that of their passengers and fellow motorists reduce speed and  stop the car as soon as possible.  The auto club said that accord- ,  ing to medical advice coronary  pain usually feels like a heavy  weight, ahd only occasionally  like fire or a knife. It may be  accompanied by" breathlessness,  but the pain itself comes on regardless of rapid breathing.  Cardiacs and persons with high  blood pressure were urged to  consult their doctors about driv^  ing habits, and, if the doctor advised, they should avoid long or  strenuous trips behind the wheel.

A combination of inexpensive  Christmas decorations can be  transformed into a handsome  panel to bedeck wall, window  or door. All that is required is  a piece of poster board, double-  faced tape, the new metalizeJ  saran icicles and Christmas  balls. To assemble, cut poster  board to desired size and centre three strips of double-faced  tape on the panel.  Cut saran icicles into 7"  lengths and place them across  the top, allowing equal lengths  to extend on either side. Press  in place. Continue until panel  is completely covered. To make  the icicle border extra full,  place tape and icicles on the  back in the same manner. Attach bow and Christmas balls  to the panel with thread, tape  ; or wire. Insert a wire hook for  hanging.  SUCCINCT  A Latvian cleaning woman  was recently asked about the  quality of the tenants of the  two rooms in her house that  she rented out.  Her answer was: "Big television, no mop."  The number of shopping days  that separate us from Christmas  is fast diminishing. It's high  time to start thinking of gifts  for those special people on our  list . . . the ones we just do��'t  shop  for at   the  last minute.  For the very youngest, how  about cuddly stuffed toys in terry cloth? Since these will be  "loved to pieces," they will require frequent washing, and local sewing center experts suggest a stuffing of old nylon stockings instead of cotton batting.  Patterns can be made simply by  tracing around plates and tumblers in the required sizes; and  faces, whiskers, feathers and  other details added before the  toy is stitched together bv  threading a machine with heavier colored thread and stitching  pencilled-in lines.  ��J|* *JU *.t��  *&>       '*-       n*  Colorful felt toys are also popular and make up quickly, because felt does not fray and  need never be hemmed.
