Total rainfall' for the month  so far (Monday) was 10.15 inches. Previous record was in 1954  when 6.79 inches fell from Nov.  13 to 20. Wettest day experienced was in January, 1958, when  3.29 inches fell. Wettest month  recorded was in November, 1954  when 13.63 inches fell with Jan.  uary of 1958 coming next, with  13.09.  , The rainfall during the.: two  storms over the seven days ending Sunday was. the heaviest so  far recorded.  Heavy rains created damage  to Sechelt's water system at the  intake, when eave-ins were re  ported to ^have cut off the supply. It took two days to get the  line running again, and water,  came through to Sechelt by  about midhight Tuesday: In the  meantime Sechelt people used  -water from wells in the vicinity.  The situation,was becoming desperate but: workmen struggled to  get. watetfintb the line just as  soon as:they: could; ,  ������:������"' While/rainfall: was heavy'��� and  water gushed in numerous places, roads in the' Sunshine Coast  area, from Port ^Mellon to Jer-  vis ihlefestbod*up4^eU~4��idet^  the strain: RCMP checked a:^report Sunday afternoon that the  road had gone out in the Roberts  Creek dip on the. highway but  this proved false. The roads department experienced some trouble on the S-turn where erosion  at a bad spot required attention.  Port Mellon reports the new  water system installed there  worked well and no difficulties  presented themselves.  Members of the provinical  roads gang worked long hours  and were somewhat prepared  when the second storm broke.  As a result only minor damage  occurred which was taken cafe  of  as soon as it was observed.  New auxiliary  for hospital  A small, but enthusiastic group  of women met at the home of  Mrs. Harold Swanson to organize the new auxiliary to St.  Mary's Hospital, Garden Bay, to  be known'as the Sechelt Auxiliary. Mr. W. R. Milligan addressed the meeting and after reading the constitution outlined the  aims and objects of a hospital  auxiliary.  Officers elected were: President, Mrs. R. Alan Swan;, vice-  president, Mrs. Eric J. Paetkau;  secretary, Mrs.; J. R. Fleming;  treasurer, Mrs. J. Robinson;  publicity,  Mrs. Arthur Redman.  Annual fees were set at $1.50  for active members and $2 for  associate members. Regular  meetings will be held in the St.  Hilda's Parish Hall ��� on the second Thursday of each month at  2 p.m. All women wishing to join  are invited tp: attend the next  meeting Feb.'���'%������.  Watch wires!  With the season of high winds,  and falling trees and branches,  comes a warning from the B.C.  Electric to beware of fallen power  lines.  "During or after a storm or  highway accident, a fallen wire  must be considered as dangerous," says F. ,H. Norminton, B.C.  Electric district manager. Electricity travels fast, hits hard,  and  you can't see it.  "If you see a wire down,  please report it at once to the  nearest B. C. Electric office.  Linemen will answer your call  promptly." '  Indian Band donates  11 acres for hospital  Sechelt Indian Band has voted to donate 11 acres of  its land opposite the Indian school in Sechelt eo a hospital  can be built on it.' This was announced following a meeting  the Indian Band council Jan. 11.  The announcement made by an official of the band  reads:  "Clarence Joe related to all the gathering the importance of a hospital, our desire to have it in Sechelt and that  we should donate some land required fcr such hospital.  "A vote was then taken which resulted 100 percent  in favor of donating 11 acres of Indian land. Surrender  documents were then signed in the presence of Indian Superintendent J. C. Let;'her and by Ctoief Chaxles Craigan and  all his band council.  70 hear Plenderleith  on school problems  Dr. William Plenderleith of  the department of education,  "Victoria, .spoke on Monday evening to a group of approximately 70 people at a meeting spon-  VIEWING THE WORLD through a mirror, is Mrs!

This system, however, was not satisfactory during the depression,  particularly in the poorer districts. This resulted in the Cameron Report of 1946, which made  many changes in the school  system.      v ;:  -  These changes included consolidating small school districts  into larger units; consolidation  of secondary.: schools . but not  the . consolidation of eiementary  schools;    transportation-   to    be  same night as all other Mothers'  Marches  will in  British Columbia.-  Directed    by    B.C.

Dr. Plenderleith then gave the  highlights . of the recent Chant  report. 'He said this report recommends a change in the philosophy of education. Instead of  trying to educate the whole  child, i.e. intellectually, socially,  morally, etc., the schools should  be concerned primarily with the  intellectual side of the student.  Responsibility for the other as  pects must rest with the home,  the  church, and other groups.  More specifically, Dean Chant  recommends that the elementary grades include grades 1 to  7, with kindergarten included.  Grades 8 to 10 would be intermediate, and grades. 11 to 13 would  be senior high school. The  schools will have two distinct  streams. of endeavour, the vocational and the academic. Children will be screened by means  of tests at the end of grades 7,  10 and 12 into one or the other  of these streams. Where there is  no  school for  the senior   voca-  Gibsons Public Library annual  meeting Monday of this week  reported total circulation dur:  ing 1960 of books numbered  10,653, a 16 percent increase, or  1.363 more than were circulated  in   1959.  Growth of the library is revealed in the increase since  1958 which showed a 25 percent  increase'over 1957 and a 33 percent increase in 1959 over 1958.  There are now more than 3,000  books in the library, both adult  and juvenile.  Officers and board members  elected for the next year were:  Reg Adams, president; Mrs.  A. Sommers, secretary-treasurer and Miss A. Jarvis, custodian.  Board members will be Mrs. R.  Emerson, Mrs., G. Corlett, Mrs.  C. Chamberlin, Mrs. Ray Fletcher, Mrs. N. R. McKibbin, Mrs.  C. Gibson, Mr. W. S. Potter,  Mr. Jack* Gordon and Mr. T.  Fyles.  The president in making his  annual report before being reelected stated 1960 had the highest book circulation the library  has experienced, and it would  appear that the trend towards  reading library books is increasing.   >  The addition to the library  building, he said, has proven a  great asset which has increased  the usability of the library and  relieved congested conditions.  The juvenile department has  been able to :expand into two  reading groups without interfering with each other which has  greatly helped making this department more popular.  The library board is greatly  indebted to all who made possible the increased facilities of the  library including the Village  council, Public Library commission; the Kiwanis club and  generous . private donors and  those who with Dick McKibbin  gave much of their time and  labor.  The juvenile department,. reported an enrollment of 68 with  average attendance of 22. There  are two sections, one for preschool children up to seven years  of age and the other section for ,  children from 8 to 10 years. The  increased space now allows two  readers to work simultaneously.  During the year puppets were  introduced and the children favor them,  wanting more.  There are now 984 juvenile  books on the shelves, an increase  of 261 in the year including 53  donated books. There are now  six members on the juvenile  staff, Mrs. Mary Gibson, Mrs.  Mary Mcintosh, Mrs. Lucy Fletcher, Ellen Chamberlin, Karen  Hansen and Pat Thomas. Mrs.  Chamberlin reporting for the  juvenile section commented on  the fine co-operation the juven--  ile department was receiving  from the juvenile staff and members of the senior library.  The financial report showed a  balance of $816.24 which will be  r^cnt for more books in senior  and juvenile departments and  other expenses.  Whichever: way vou look at it, 1961 is a topsy-turvy year.  There's no upside down as (left to right from bottom) Jeanne  Balaibas, ,Metr> Witham, Jackie Beck and Sarah Becker demonstrate that it reads correctly no matter haw you look at it. The  last tirhevitjhappened was 1881, and the next tim2 a tcpsy-turvy  yearcc^nes along-'will be in 6009.'     .   ..'   './.;"  tional subjects, students will be  sent to vocational schools which  will be located at points through.,  out the province.  Consolidation of some districts  into larger . units was recommended, Sechelt and Powell River School districts were two  mentioned.  Also recommended was the  desirability of having more  small elementary schools so that  younger children are within  walking distance of the school,  rather than having them transported to a larger school, said  Dr. Plenderleith.  After his talk, Dr. Plenderleith  invited questions, arid for 90  minutes an interested audience  kept him busy answering questions about many aspects of education in this district.  Mrs.  Volen,  president   of  the  PTA,  thanked   Dr.   Plenderleith  for his interesting talk, and also  ..' thanked^^Mt^VGbild^fOT^Jbejng^.  chairman of the meeting^ "P C"  Float for  Gibsons bay  A plan for a 360 foot float in  the bay extending from its pre-  mises was presented Gibsons village council Tuesday night and  received council's approval subject to approval of the provincial  lands   department.  Some objection had been raised that the float would interfere  with other boat traffic but Mr.  Hendrickson of Gibsons Boat  Works explained it would not  and in view of the fact dredging would have to be done he  thought the project would benefit  shipping in that area of the  bay.  As the matter now stands it  awaits engineering inspection by  provincial authorities before final approval is complete and  work on the project can proceed. .  Contract, for construction o��  the new water reservoir near  the old School Road tank was  awarded Smith and Peterson  Construction Ltd., of Gibsons.  Total cost will be about $5,500.  The provisional budget required under the. Municipal Act was  placed before council, discussed  and passed. Passage of a provisional budget is necessary to  allow payment of accounts until  the  complete  budget is  passed.  Accounts totalled $335.03, all  for small amounts covering general expenses, fife protection,  roads, water and winter work  were ordered paid.  A request for a street light on  Sergent road was considered and  a report was ordered on the request for the next meeting.  Council was informed that  work was progressing on the Se-  chelt-Gibsons Muncipal Airport  as per contract in spite of the  bad weather.  PTA meeting  Elphinstone High School PTA  meeting will be held on Jan. 23  at. 8 p.m. in the high school. This  meeting will be presented with  English in the school, as viewed by teachers and pupils.  Members are .urged to attend  and bring a friend. New members aid others v-ho '~ay cc-y  on their. own are invited to take  part in the meeting.  Stevens to speak  The annual meeting of the Gibsons and District Board of  Trade will be held Monday, Jan.  23, at:"7'* p.m. at School Halt.  Gibsons. It is a dinner meeting:  and wives are invited.  The speaker will be Homer  Stevens,' secretarv-treasurer of  the- U.F.A.W.U. The public is invited to hear his illustrated address at 9.  Chief Craigan  is re-elected  Since 1952 and under the Indian Act, Sechelt Indian Band uses  the elective system for council  and on Jan. 11 all voting members, aged 21 and over voted for  their hew chief and council.  There were more than 100 who  voted.  Chief Charles Craigan' was reelected by acclamation for a  third term. Clarence Joe was reelected by a large majority.  Henry Paull was also elected,  winning over Arthur Jeffries by  two votes. Dennis Joe was elected to the Junior Band council by  a very large majority.  Under the Indian Act the band  is ; allowed one councillor for  each 100 members and with the  band almost at the 400 mark it  will soon be entitled to four  members. J.' C. Letcher, Indian  department superintendent and  J. Gallagher of the same department ,were electoral of f icer s.  SainAjbhnsoa^witb^.Chariie Craigan were scrutineers. .' '"  There are still a number of  bands in Canada which prefer  the old system of appointing officials, thus respecting the hereditary chiefs. .���-���������  Business discussed by the  band following the elections included the hospital site, reported elsewhere on this page and a  winter works program which after discussion resulted in the  band, from its capital held in  trust at Ottawa allotting $12,000  of which the federal government  would return $6,000 under the  works scheme. This money  would be used for cleaning and  repairing the. cemetery, cleaning of ditches, work on the play-  v -,: neia, work on. reserve roads  and other items. It is expected!  iuac aoout half the money would  be used in wages for labor on,  the  projects.  Several applications for leasing Indian lands were discussed  resulting in the applications being approved providing the applicants- agree to the terms and  fees asked by the band council.  Sale of Indian land has been a  difficult question with the band.  . Twice a gathering was called  and each time it was shelved  until the next meeting. Under  the Indian act bands, through  their councils, ' can sell land,  providing there is a majority of.  votes in favor.  The Native Sisterhood, Sechelt  branch, re-elected Mrs. Mary  Martha Joe as president. Mrs.  Amelia C. Craigan, wife of Chief  Craigan was elected secretary  with Mrs. Evelyn D. August as  treasurer. On the committee are  Mrs. Melanie Joe, Iris Joe and  Mrs. Delphine Paull.  There are 30 members in the  Native Sisterhood and they do>  a considerable amount of village  and community work. The Sisr  terhood will sponsor a dance on  Friday night at the band's council hall.  Clarence Joe, a member of  the executive of the Native Brotherhood of B.C. and one of the  spokesmen for the North American Indian Brotherhood founded  by the late Andy Paull, will attend an all Indian gathering at  Vancouver Jan. 23 to 27 in the  Niagara Hotel board room. Delegates from all B.C. will attend.  At     this    meeting    numerous1  items will be discussed including  general    welfare,    medical    service, winter works,   union   relationships,    liquor,   education   of  native children and  commercial  fishing. 2       Coast News,  Jan. 19, 1961.

They should grow up  The ideas of a young lady named Joy Davies in an interview"1  passed out by CBC for publication deserve editorial comment. She  argues many celebrities are tired of aggressive techniques and stereotyped  questions that broadcast interviewers use.  With this argument the listening audience including the editor  of the Coast News heartily agrees. One listens to the pathetically  inept manner in which some interviews are conducted. They appear  to. strive hard to avoid the questions which should be asked and fall  back on banalities which one expects from tiresome people.  Not so long ago Marlene Dietrich walked away from one interviewer when he asked an idiotic question. She definitely was not to  blame. It is time interviewers rejected the obvious and prepared  themselves with questions which would raise the status of the inter-  Triewer and the interviewed. Perhaps this is asking too much.  "The idea of sending out immature minds to interview minds  which have specialized in their maturity persists. For a good interview some research is necessary. Research means work. Many  people abhor work. Why?  A new feud arises  A new feud has arisen. First the corn oil people claim fats have  some responsibility for heart troubles. Now the butter people have  come forward arguing that fats along with normal exercise are  not harmful.  This possibly could be classed as free enterprise at work. However one can assume that when the flurry has receded approximately the same number of people will believe either argument according  to their taste.  While realizing that butter fat and corn oil are a necessity one  bas only to check back to wartime conditions when millions of men  fived on very little butter or corn oil in their diet and were mighty  lean yet healthy specimens. Perhaps the clue to heart troubles lies  elsewhere.  Fire the weatherman?  The Feb. 4 issue last year of this publication contained an editorial concerning Russian agricultural production which at one point  bad a delegate to the East German Communist conference taking  the attitude that "pigs cannot be expected to follow the rhythm of  the party." The complaint concerned a meat shortage.  Almost one year later we have the spectacle of the head mar.  in agriculture being toppled from his post because of a crop failure.  The incentive prevalent in Russian circles to do bigger and better  things than anyone else can get carried too far. The possibility of  "bigger and better" failures does not enter the official Russian  mind.  However, people, Communist or otherwise, have no control over  the elements. One bushel of seed one year produces little while a  bcisibel the next year multiplies itself many times over. So far there  las been no indication of the elements favoring any specific ideology.  Hallucinations unlimited  In a recent issue of the Vancouver Sun, Dick Beddoes who writes  a column which appears to be interested in some sporting events  bad this to say:  ���"Practically all the civilized world has been bleeping on ten-  ierhooks the last few weeks, plucking at the coverlet like a budding bride, feverishly wondering whether Bob Schloredt  would  .���accept an offer to play quarterback for the B.C. Lions."  Tiais suggests Mr. Beddoes lives in a very small world. There  are more people in British Columbia who care little about Mr. Schloredt and much less about Mr. Bedtioes. Perhaps "all the  civilized  world" of Mr. Beddoes centres around the Lions football  and the  Vanoouver Sun. God help us if it does!  ARTICLE 2  (By. LES; PETERSON)  Anthropologists on the western side of the continent haye:  almost universally maintained  that the aborigines of the Pacific littoral, at least, migrated  here from somewhere in Asia,  looking to the now narrow Bering Strait, which might once  have been dry land, as the likely entry point to thds continent.  Both points of view, of  course, could be true. A branch  of humanity could have originated within the reaches of bur  changing and expanding continent, whose rocks are in  places as old as any on earth,  and certainly immigration from  Asia, or from the Pacific islands, could have taken place  at almost any time in the past.  Certainly even a casual examination of variations in physique would seem to indicate  rather definitely., that, not all  of these peoples of the conti-  ment came from the same  source.  In British Columbia there  are eviderioes of great movements among diverse groups,  one invading the grounds occupied by another and superseding it in a continual series  of "volkerwanderungen." Proof  of these waves of motion can  be found in artifacts known to  have been manufactured by one  pr"->ut> being dug up on lands  inhabited by another.  It would appear, for instance,  from specimens found deep in  the ground near Nanaimo, that  the great fire which swept along  the eastern side of "Vancouver  Island some 400 years ago  drove out all of the natives  then inhabiting that area, and  that those wtbo now live there  came from elsewhere at a later  date.  Whether the tribes now living within this area have been  here since the territory was  habitable, or whether they came  later,  is   not  known.   There  is  FROM  THE  Printed  a considerable variation in the  types of artifact, particularly  v spear and arrow-heads, found  here, but it is impossible to  tell now whether such differences are due to evolution in  technique of manufacture, to  trade, or to displacement of  one people by  another.  Since succeeding waves of  intruders would almost certainly occupy the same localities;  namely, creek mouths near  clam bedSi as the group displaced, unless there was some  marked difference in the tools  and weapons produced, and  many specimens of such left  for us to find, there would now  be no way of knowing of such  displacements.  The Indians of North America, it might be noted here, did  not calculate dates from any  fixed  point. From  very   early  in their history, peoples of the  Old World tended to look upon  the procession of days and years  as a flowing process. They thus  fixed some one significant date,,  such as the birth, rule, or death  of a leader ,and calculated the  passage of time onward from  there.  Too, as all early civilizations  were! agricultural in their economies, they soon noted the  cyicles of seasons; the birth,  fruition, death and regeneration of their crops, again suggestive of time in process of  flight. Seasons, however, played no such important role in  the lives of the North American Indian, based as it was  largely on' a hunting and fishing economy. He developed instead a conicept of time as  something cumulative; of today  as. being the sum total  of all  Word  BELITTLIN'  "Pejorative," "Praxis" and  "Nescience" are, words that  promote the sale^qf dictionaries.  They also might''tend to throw  off the track a mind that was  trying to follow an intricate  argument in favor of doing  something about the reading  material provided for Canadians.  Nescient Canadians was a  phrase that the speaker explained was1 .used rather than  to say that Canadians are ignorant or agnostic.  Praxis is an obsolete word  meaning action or practice. If  practice is meant, why not say  so?  Pejorative means, broadly,  belittling ��� and that's a good  idea half the time.  SIGNS OF AGE  For a long time there have  been several recognized signs  of aging. One is when you begin to notice how young the  policemen seem to be. Another  is forgetfulness of names and  faces. Increasing irritability,  fussiriess over small matters,  waning ability to concentrate  are others.  Now a friend has discovered  from personal experience a  new sign. He says you are really getting old when a man older  than yourself calls you "Sir."  AFFLUENT SOCIETY  , Who said there was lack of  money in this Canada? A well-  known jewellery chain is offering a sapphire and diamond  necklace for sale. The price is  $57,500  Barbaric hook  The torture hook used by the  Algerians will be one of the  main. attractions in the new  wax museum to open in April  in the Empress hotel's Crystal  Garden.  It will be the only horror ex->  hibit in the collection of some.  60 figures. The cost of the museum will be in excess of $100,-  000.  The "hook" was a favorite  Algerian torture, according to  John Steele, managing director  of the Royal London Wax Mu-.  seurh. A heavy hook was driven"  through a man's body and he  was then hoisted into the air  to dangle.  Steele said if plans develop,  the wax museum will include  the complete Chamber of Horrors in time for Victoria's centenary in 1962. This is considered the feature attrition of  London's wax museum.  Canada Year Book 54th  edition ready  Release of the 1960 edition  of the Canada Year Book is announced by the Dominion  Bureau of Statistics. This newest edition is the 54>tto in the  present series which continues  a long record of earlier publications that supplied official  statistical and; other information on Canada's development  during the 19th and 20th Centuries.  Extensive revisions have  been made in the textual and  statistical material of the various chapters, particularly with  regard to the machinery of government, the native peoples of  Canada, public health and welfare, scientific, medical and industrial research., power generation and utilization, mineral  production, manufactu ring,  transportation... and communica  tions, the domestic marketing  of commodities, foreign trade,  national income and expenditure, and Canada's investment  position. In addition, new features have been introduced Dover ing such subjects as the national parole system, space research, and controls over the  pricing and marketing of farm  products other than grain."  Preserved trees  Whien workmen were cutting  the; new Upper Levels highway  in North Vancouver they were  required to place a road cut  85 feet deep on the west banks  of the Lynn Creek. Here they  ran into standing trees perfectly preserved. Laboratory tests  later revealed that these tress  had been preserved for at least  40,000 years and the wood was  still in perfect condition.  These were not petrified but  the wood was so preserved it  was readily cut and workable.  It _has been determined that  these trees were Lodgepole  Pines and that they evidently  grew in a fairly dense stand,  possibly covered over during  one of the glacial periods.  INDIAN VIEW OF TIME  yesterdays. ,It is a. difference  similar to that between a contemplation of beads'strung on  a string and beads heaped in a  basket.'  Even today, because, probably, of' this fundamental difference in concept, the B.C.

It  is a mistake to expect him to  do so, .for he has not counted  today as a bead oh. the string,  but has added it to the ever-  iraoreasing heap in the basket  To him, all of the past is some  portion of today, and time does  not flow but is static.  Since there have been left  no dated tablets; then, as have  been found /throughout the Old  World, we can only say that,  from examinations of middens,  and from the fact that Indians  still reside at Pender Harbor  and at Sechelt, and did live at  Gibsons until about 1925, there  has likely been a continuous  human occupancy of this area  for two or three thousand years;  that is. back to the time of  Caesar's invasion of Britain or  possibly, a thousand years before it.  The time of first occupancy  would likely have been determined by readiness for occupancy; that is, by the time at  which it became possible for  human beings, to obtain food  here following the retreat of  the ice-sheet. It is 'possible.. that  the native population of the  continent even very long ago  was relatively high.

Bay water  proposal discussed  A public meeting Sunday afternoon in Wilson Creek Community hall heard Mr. J. L. Da-  vies outline a proposed water  plan to replace the present inadequate system. Erosion at  wells now used has caused considerable difficulty and the plan  is to eventually tie in with the  Sechelt water system.  The meeting after  asking  numerous   questions   thanked   Mr.  Davies   for   appearing    at    the  meeting and by  assent gave its  approval to allow Mr. Davies to  report   to   the   Pi/.lie   Utilities  Commission of the meeting's approval.   There   was    a   proviso  which stated that this was done  providing there was no-increase  in  water   rates.   An   outline   of  the situation follows:  '^The proposed new system  and rates are as discussed in  detail at the public meeting held  last August at the Community  Centre under the chairmanship  of the Public Utilities Commis-  ision. The costs for the new system are proving to be higher  than estimated  but the  propos-  near to paying the operating  costs but the rate was not - altered until money could be raised  to rebuild part of the system to  provide adequate supply to all  customers. The old system could  not provide proper supply to all  the customers.  "The hew request before, the,  Public Utilities Commission is  to finish the building of a complete new system which will purchase water from the Sechelt  Waterworks. Only some small  iron pipes: which are on road  allowance will be retained of the  old system. All old wooden  mains and the complete pumping system will be abandoned.  The reservoir which is not owned by us will also be abandoned by us.  "It is: hot reasonable to compare old to new rates as the proposed new rates are based on  paying for the borrowing of money and. operating costs of ,r the  new water system.  "The proposed rate will be in  line with the proposed Sechelt  water rates and lower than the  W��U~,   ALMOST    EXCLUSIVE  ed water rates are being kept at    proposed rates for the West Se-  *he figure stated at that time,  As a result of the apparent agreement at that meeting, work  lias gone ahead of preparing  plans and contracts for the complete rebuilding of the water  svstcrn  "With the old  rate   of  $15  a  year, the income  did not  come  Sechelt Guides  showing strenth  The Ladies Auxiliary to Sechelt Guides and Brownies held  its first meeting of 1961 at the  home of Mrs. Tom Lamb, Sechelt.

Any assistance for Guid-  er Mrs. Dombroski, will be  greatly appreciated.  chelt system, which will also be  purchasing water from  Sechelt.  "The new system, when complete, will have cost over $31,500  The annual operating cost including interest of borrowed  money, purchase of water, gradual repayment of loan and operating expenses are estimated  at over $4,500.  "It was proposed to build the  new   system    because   the   old  pumping system was considered  unreliable,   arid   because    some  members of the community have  written   to   the   Public  Utilities  Commission asking for   removal  of water mains on private properties.   There is   now a   much  more urgent reason to build the  new   system. The shelf  of  land  on which' the pumps  arid wells  are   situated   is   being   washed  away, and the large well which  jroduced nearly two-thirds of the  water supply in the summer has  been   completely  washed   away.  "The     remaining     well     and  pump  can  keep up   the  supply  Lamp explodes  causing fire  A gas lamp exploded at the,  Frank Kingston home during the  storm last Thursday. The power  black out led Mrs. Kingston to  light a gas lamp in the kitchen,  she returned to the living room  with her five children ranging  in age from seven years, to nine  weeks, when an explosion occurred.  Jim   Graves   of  the B   and  J  store next door grabbed an extinguisher    and   rushed   to    the  scene.   The force of  the   explosion had sent the  lamp through  the roof, knocking a wall away  from the roof and jamming the  kitchen   door.   He   managed   to  pry it open and brought the four  elder children outside,  returning,  to  help   Mrs.  Kingston  and  her  baby.

This is the first step in a remodelling of the block in which  the bakery operates.  James Parker of Parker's  Hardware is taking over the former bakery shop to allow expansion in the hardware store.  Village Cafe is to undergo remodelling which when all is complete will give the area a new  look. -^  At the meeting of the Sechelt  Rural-Wilson Creek Ratepayers  Association on Monday, Jan. 16,  a committee headed by Mrs. R.  L. Jackson was appointed to investigate the possibilities of a  water improvement area for the  district, in view of the state of  emergency now existing in the  Sechelt  district.  Plans were laid for a St. Patrick's party on Friday March 17  at the Wilson Creek Hall. No  liquor will be sold at this party  so that it should be attractive to  the younger set.  Membership fees for 1961 are  now due. Husbands and wives  of ratepayers are eligible to ���.���become members, as are tenant  electors.  The food hamper raffle was  won by J. H. McCrea of Sechelt.

Federation of Agriculture has asked the B.C. government to slash school- taxes on  farmlands and offered to prove  that farmers pay more than  their fair share. The- same position prevails as in 1935, said the  brief. The farmers of this, province1 believe they are being  over-taxed on education; that  they are paying more than their  opposite numbers in other provinces and that they are most  definitely paying more than  other citizens based on their income and ability to pay.

DOG MADE BUTTER  The family dog was an active  butter-maker in .Canadian farm  households 100 years ago. Rover would run about in a six-  foot frame dog-wheel which, in  turn, set a pulley in motion. In  this way, the panels of an attached churn were moved, and  fine quality butter produced.  Such dog-wheel' churns were  common among Pennsylvanian  Dutch farmers'settled. near Toronto.

Forest fires expensive  The ��� I960 Forest' Fire Season  damage and costs show a preliminary i960, total firefigKting  bill of .^5,188,207, of which $4,705,-  .500 was charged against. the  Forest Service. In addition, damage, to forest coyer, capital  equipment and loss of Crown  stumpage : amounted to $4,025,-  C18, for an overall total cost of  $9,203,225. The total bill for 1958,  a really bad year, was $14,442,-  320.  The total area burned over in  1960 amounted to 285,820 acres,  a far cry from the 2,065,420  acres in 1958. This great difference is due primarily to the  fact that the major fire area in  1958  was  the  vast, inaccessible  Fishes9 gills  act as jets  The resistance of water is  something like 700 times that  of air ,so the really high speeds  achieved by fish/ are little short  of miraculous. It was formerly  thought that the fins, particularly the caudal fin, and the  tail were the sole and primary  means of locomotion, but experiments have shown that a  fish without tail or fins is far  from helpless.  The chief method of progression is through the rippling  undulation of the fish's body,  aided by the streams of water  from the gills. The other organs are useful as steering devices, balancers, brakes and  aids to sudden movement,  v/hile the swim-bladder inside  all fish, a kind of sac containing gas lying just above the  gullet; -a:its as a sort of hydrostatic lifebuoy adjusting th.3  gas contents according to the .  degree of water pressure at  varying depths.

R. Hourston,  director ,of   fisheries, 'Pacific  area. The report was compiled  by the economics branch of the  Department of Fisheries in Vancouver under Blake A. Campbell, chief economist.  v   The new income study is, in  effect, a continuation of similar  but more detailed studies undertaken by the department in  1953    and    1954.   The    initial  study was based on actual enumerations of  a  sample   group  of 266 fishermen in British Columbia,    whereas    the     latter  study  was carried  out in the  form of an analysis of earnings  of all salmon and halibut -fish-.r  effjrnen based���: p^imarilyl ��� onv irW/:  fomhation   submitted : oh   sale'  slips.-  In the preamble to the report, Mr. Campbell pointed out  that the two years selected for  the study were considered to  be a good example of the variations that may be expected in  annual income patterns in B.C.  fisheries. Returns from salmon  fishing in 1957 were  well be-  in  income  B.C.  low   average,    while  those   of  1958 were well above. Similarly, returns from  halibut  were  high in 1958, but 1957 returns  were   about  10   percent below  the 1952  -  1958  average. Herring landings- were reduced because of strike action but the  value of landings during 1957;  were just about average, while  record   landings   in   the ..1ast'  three months of 1958 resulted  in high returns to herring fishermen for that year. Earnings  from   these   species   normally  constitute;   90    percent   of  the  total annual returns to fishermen in British Columbia.  The report gives a comprehensive breakdown of fishermen's incomes through tables  and simple graphs. Earnings  are shown on, the basis of type  ,qf operation, position in crew,  and species. Data used in the  compilation of the report reflects the earnings of over 10,-  000 licenced fishermen in 1957  and over 12,000 in 1958.  In releasing the new report,  Area Director Hourston expressed the appreciation of the department of fisheries for the cooperation generously given by  all 'branches of the fishing industry in British Columbia, in  providing information to the  survey staff.

I want you all to  know that this is the highlight  of our present Campaign and it  has given us all here a: real lift.  With so much need in the world  today Christmas cards do seem  a bit superfluous.  It has been a busy year and  all indications point to a high  level of unemployment with a  corresponding need for shelter,  food and clothing.  Our new padre, Rev. F.
