When the minutes were read they stated only  that the annual meeting would  be held Jan.' 8. The issue was  CSowry. P  Charles.   Clowry,     55    and  .Frederick Peterson, 30, both of  Gibsons    appeared   in * police  court   over  which  Magistrate  Andrew1 Johnston presided on  Wednesday    evening    of, last  week and were remanded until  Dec.'23 or sentence on a conspiracy to rob charge.

Defence counsel called Arthur Propp of Gibsons as a  character witness. Mr. Propp  said he had known Clowry for,  some time. He knew he lived a"  very lonely life in his neglected shack. Basically he was a  good man, he said, and while  generally    confused,'   a    good  worker, i Mi%T Prqpp: did riot  thinkt;it was- possible Clowry  could hurt a dog, much less a  human being.; Addingya few  words on behalf of Peterson;  Mr.: Propp isaid Peterson **al-  Wayswasa confused chilid;'5 'X':  The case was heard' in the  Anglican * Parish5 Hall with  about eight or nine spectators  present.

For the  past ytwo months, companies  have been studying the statistical data which has confirmed that the past year was the  worst in automobile insurance  history.        xy  All Canada Insurance Federation, an association which  does not itself have any authority over rates, undertook the  survey of some 300 member  companies to ascertain the general pattern for the coming  year. And the general pattern  is "up" ��� consadejfablly in  many cases. .  The survey showed that the  higher price of cars -��� with the  consequent higher cost of repairs ��� was-the major factor  forcing the increase* in rates.  Average cost per claim has  jumped to an all-time high ~  some 30 percent over that of  a few years ago. This has been  only partially offset by the one  encouraging note in the situation, the fact that the number  of accidents in relation to the  number of vehicles insured has  dropped slightly.  ���' "Longer cars, wider cars,  cars packed with, expensive ���  and breakable ��� equipment  make each accident a more expensive proposition, and it just  isn't possible to insure $4,000  or $5,000 caris at the price of  $2,000 cars," the survey report  said,.    - ."���'"      -   T" ���  "Unfortunately, as. far as insurance to cover a motorist's  liability to others in concerned  the fact that he may still be  driving an inexpensive car  doesn't help any.

Described as the greatest single ride . improvement s*ince  the pneumatic tire, the 1958  Oldsmobile's New-Matic Ride  true air suspension system lets  passengers ride at a relatively  constant lever no matter what  the road conditions or car loading. It is available as optional  equipment at added cost on  all 1958 Oldsmobiles equipped  with power steering.  Oldsmobile offers two different Rocket engines in its  three series of cars. The econ-  . omy-priced Dynamic "88" series is powered by an engine  with the new "iEcon-o-way"  dual carburetor and rated at  265 horsepower. This engine  represents the greatest Sfuel  economy improvement in Oldsmobile history. The Super "88"  and "98" series both have the  Rocket engine with quadri-jet  carburetors and developing  305 h.p.  The "98" series has four  body styles ��� two hardtqps,  Holiday sedan and Holiday  coupe, a four-door sedan and  a convertible. There are five  body types in the Super "88"  series ��� Holiday sedan, Holiday coupe, four-door se<San,  convertible coupe' and Fiesta  station wagon.

Rectangular parking' lights are integrated , in the outer .ends of  the front bumper.  Horizontal trim strips sweep  the length of the front fenders  and through the rear quarter  -panels and fenders. A thin roof  line accents the low silhouette.  The rear Ayindow is a single  pane of glass with up to 28'  per cent more area. The fuel  tank opening is just ahead of  the left rear tail-light. The re-  styled rear bumper has twin  . backup lights at each end,  flanking' each bumper guard,  an extra cost accessory on^ the  Super "88" and "98" series.  The 1958 Oldsmobile's New-,  Matic Ride true air suspension  system cushions the car on  four chambers of compressed  air, one at each wheel, to create an ultra-smooth ride, with  less driver and passenger fatigue.

As soon as you bring the  tree home, stand it in a pail  or tub filled with water until  you are ready to set it up and  trim it. This will prolong the  life and appearance of the tree  ���keep the needles from falling,  and minimize the danger of  fire.  Keep your tree stand water-  well full and your tree will  remain fresh and fragrant  throughout the holidays.  Bear in mind that tree trimming follows a fundamental  rule of women's fashions ��� accentuate the opposite. If your  tree is tall and slender, decorating line should tend toward  the horizontal. If it is short  and full, trim your tree along  lines which tend to be vertical.  Applying this simple rule will  help you bring out the best  in the tree.  Too often, the number of  lights used to trim a tree is  arrived at by' guesswork, and  results look disappointingly  "spotty:" There is a formula,  [however,  -which    does   away  Wishing you aU the happiness of the season.  The Staff at  SECHELT BOWLING ALLEYS  SECHELT 92-X  <^dkm l  ORDER  EARLY  rthwhile  with much of the guesswork  and helps produce an evenly  lighted appearance. To achieve  what professionals call a "good  lighted effect," try this formula  Height of Tree (in feet) x  Width of Tree at Base (in feet)  in height and 4V�� feet' wide  x 3.  Let's say your tree is 6 feet  at the base. The formula would  work like this: ���  6 x 4V2 x 3 - ���   8?.   lights   foi  "good lighted effect."  While personal taste is the  last word in decorating Christmas trees, each year finds  more families adopting /the  above formula which will help  in bringing out the natural  beauty of their tree and give a  "good lighted effect."  Tree size No. of Lamps  4' 36  5' 56  6' 81  7' 110  8' 144  10' 225  Trees should always be  trimmed from the top down.  In working, from the bottom  up, a trimmer is literally "in  his ,own way," and runs the  risk of knocking the tree down.  So start at the top, with your  angel or star ornament, and  work down.  After your tree-top ornament is firmly in place, string  the tree lights, using the formula outlined above for,a good  lighted effect. Reflectors and  halos are available _at modest  cost, and these greatly increase  the brilliance of tree lights.  Next, add your "continuous"  decoration, such as strung popcorn. Follow this, With glass  ball ornaments, snow balls,  candy canes and similar decorations. Last, add aluminum  or lead tinsel, one piece at a  time, and finish perhaps with  a  spray of artificial snow.

Recently a giant of the  species over 700 years old was  felled at Errington on Vancouver Island. It was a seedling  when Ghenghis Khan over-ran  Tartary, a sapling when King  John signed the Magna Carta.  Few such trees remain, however and an ordinary stand of  good commercial Douglas fir  today will carry trees ranging  from 120 to 180 feet in height  with diameters of from 2 to 6  feet. Recognized as one of the  world's greatest structural  timbers, Douglas fir may be  used for every purpose in con-',  struction from heavy bridge  timbers to the finest interior  finish.  HOMES FOR WILDLIFE: Unfortunately, for wild animals  at least, forest clearings are  only temporary. Lodgepole  pines and the other conifers  very often shade out aspen,  birch and willow and in a few  years the conifer trees v are  once again,dominant.; This: is  Twhat, we call^forest succession.**-  When clearings and edges  become too scarce as a -result  of forest succession, many of  our wild *animali3 become fewer in numbers. Food shortage's  occur and shrub-eating, aniv  mals such as deer, moose and  elk may die of. starvation. Every * year a certain number of  moose die. because they cannot obtain enough food during  the cold .winter months. They  eat all the palatable food they  can find but not, infrequently  this is insufficient.  In their search for food animals often travel long distances in deep snow.

H. Drummond with  his associates, Archie  Mainwaring and Reg.  Adams extend good  wishes for a happy Xmas,.  A happy New Year with  good health and prosperity in 1958.  For. Real Estate, Insurance and Notary  work, Always at your  service.  One of the warmest traditions of Christmas is the  Christmas carol. People have  been singing carols for nearly  2,000 years but they perhaps  have a wider appeal now than  ever before.  . The first carol was heard  by the shepherds in the fields  1,957 years ago, when "suddenly there was with the Angel a  multitude of the Heavenly  Host praising God and saying:  'Glory to God in the highest,  And on earth peace, good will  .toward man.' "  The older carols forever  hold their place, but it is noteworthy new carols of high popularity have been written in  comparitively recent times.  And behind the newest carols are some of the best known  which are of practically modern vintage. "Hark t^e Herald  Angels Sing" was written by  Qharles Wesley, younger brother of John, who died in 1788.  John Byf on, English poet who  died in 1763, wrote "Christians Awake" and" While Shepherds Watched" was written  by Nahum Tate, Irish poet who  died in 1715. He, however, put  words to a tune that dates from  1592.  The word carol comeis firomy  the Italian carolare meaning  to sing andT dance in a ring,  and dancing and singing w��re  part of the religious festivities  long before Christ: And there  was nothing puritanical about  the way carols were sung in  England a few centuries ago;  They saw nothing unseemly in  praising God in. terms of eating and drinking.  In T "Poor Robin's Almanacks  for 1695" there's this; verse:     ~  "Now  thrice welcome  Christmas'*     ��� ��� v  Which brings us good cheer,  Mince pies and plum porridge,  Good Aleand strong beer."  Some other old verses in  their homely ahd affectionate  description of the Holy Family  look like nursery rhymes to  the modern reader.  But they all have one thing  in common, to praise God and  give thanks for the blessing of  the Saviour's appearance on  earth. s .   ������  $!��id!#i#10$!ft^  ev;  Extending out best  wishes ftir a cheery  XuU'tida Season!    ���  m  IRWIN MOTEL  No other words  say it so well -v  MERRY CHRISTMAS  S^dgewayXoffee Bar  GIBSONS  , cMsxy tfie. vooiid again ��&  bUM&d bg Iht Szautiful ms.ua.gt  oj p&ace.  and good wdl\  I tfiak was, ��o%n in 1$ml littU ioton oj SBdzULm &o long ago, \  /   Fronxijie Management and Staff  otor Pro  WILSON CR��EK, B.C  Coast New��, Dec. 19, 1957.

Welcome amendments were  made to the National Housing  Act, increasing the amount  available for direct loans by  150 million dollars. The ceiling on 90% loans was raised  from $8,000 to $12,000 with  70% loans available on amounts above $12,000.

T '    '  Here  is   another   scene   at  Bethlehem which is not so sad.  Many years after Jacob lived,  v named   Elimelech  and  Naomi  there was.V man of Bethlehem  his:*. wife who, with their two  sons went to dwell in the city*  of  Moab.   The   sons   married  daughters   of   Moab.   And   it  came  to  pass  that Elimelech  died and also his two sons died.  So the widow  of Naomi  was  left with* her daughters-in-law,.  Ruth and Orpha. V  . g  Naomi became utterly hdme-  sick for.her home and people  in Bethlehem and 'she decided  to  return.   She bade farewell  to the girls. Orpha kissed her  and returned  to  her Moabite  ' kinsfolk,Tibut Ruth clave unto  her. "Entreat <me not '# leave," '.*.  she pleaded, "or to return from ;������  following  after thee; for whiT ~  ther. thou gpest I will go; and  whither   thouTlodgest,   I  will  lodge; thy people shall be my ..  people and thy God hiy God." ��� ���  And every Bible reader knows T  how Ruth became the wife of X  whose name was Obed, who ini  Boaz,   and   they  had  a   child  turn was the father of Jesse,  who was the father of David.  T David was a boy of Bethle-T  hem. On its hillsides he tended* *  his, father's flocks and every  r  nook     and    cranny    became  known to  him.   When he became a man and was hunted  by they jealous King Saul, he  often was driven far away to  hide in caves. Oh one occasion  he was hiding among the hills;  he thought with longing of his  former    home.    Suddenly    he  cried "Oh that One would give  me to  drink   of   the well   of  Bethlehem that is by the gate!"  He may have been thirsty, but  even more than that,  he was  homesick.  Three brave men overheard ���  his   wish.   .They   resolved   to"  brave   every   danger  and   attempt -to satisfy David's'long-,  ing. They* scaled the steep hillsides and at great risk reached  the well at Bethlehem and re-'  turned to David's cave with the*  water. Wheivhe heard the daring of their exploit; he refused-  to drink that which had been  secured at;so.great a priced  He said: "Shall I drink the  ���blood of the meii that went; in .  jeopardy of their lives. Far be  it. from me, 6' Lord, that I  should do this;" Then in the  presencfe of all he poured it out  as an-offering unto the Lord.  Once again, oh the: hills  around Bethlehem, sheep quietly grazed. Here, in the sublime, yet simple words of the  Scripture, the story is told:  "And : there:. were   shepherds  in the same country, abiding in  the fields, keeping watch by  night over their flock.
