Finances: While 'the exact financial position of the corporation is not available until the  'books are closed and after the  Duditor's report is received, I  know that the books will show  a small surplus, part of _his  0urplus arising from careful financing and part from not carrying out certain minor projects that had been, included in  ���this year's budget.  Roads: A fairlty extensive-  road and drainage progralm  wtts successfully carried out.  Imperial Paving Ltd. did all of  our doublie flushcoating and  paving of road ends, road crossings, parking areas and side-  waillks. The vAxrk was reasonably good.  Four  distinct  drainage  pro-'  jecits were undertaken, and successfully  completed  this  jlaar.  1. A covered dradnag>e line  w&s laid on the west side of  Marine Drive between Beach  Avenue a_d the Checkwelp Indian Reserve. This line seems  )tiotbe working efficiently and  !h*-*J5 centainly given much bet-  bet and safei parking space  along its entire length. This  -was a joint undertaking, the  municipality purchasing all materials and the department of  highways doing the work.  2. A covered drainage line  Was laid on ihe wlest side of  <the G-ower Point Road between  WTahn Wood Hardware store  end the muricipal pumphouse.  A_3ain this was a joint venture,  the municipality buying all the  (materials and the department  of hiigfhwtays doing the enginepr-  lirrg and all the work. Subsequently the municipality sur-  tfafoed and curbed the section  between John Wood Halrdware  stjore and the Peninsula Clean-  ,ers. This was a big project, so  big that without the help of the  department of Mghiwayis it  would have been very,' diftficult  tto carry it out on our limited  (budget. This council appreciates tihe thelp it receivfes from  the department of highways, it  ���particularly appreciates the cooperation, it receives from the  (local crew and its foreman H.  G. Turner.  3. Some 525 feet of cement  culvert was -laid from, the western edge cf the AJderspring  Road, through and along the  southern edge of the AJsager  property, and down the Gower  Point Road ditch to the natural  water course. This line appears  to be workizig well, the Alder-  fepring area is certainly drier  thefi in the post.  4. A very bad area at the  corner of Truemaoi and Bay  Roads was cleared and fill.d  With gravel; a covered drain  Jine was then laid from the  west   side    of   the Bay Road  News for     Another mystery picture ��� Can you name it?  manners  Notice 179  1.

Approximately every 10 years  something strange happens to  many species. of wildlife 'in Canada's/ nofthland. A , mysterious'  catastrophe sweeps across. the  land and millions upon millions  of wild creatures meet their end  through a variety of causes. Rec/:  ords of these events are available for more than 250 years,  thanks largely .to old-time' fur  traders', journals, and it has been'  found that the cycle averages .  out at 9.7 years. When the snow  shoe rabbit population is at its  peak /the north country is teeming with life. When the crash  comes the contrast is unbelievable. The land seems lifeless and  only' the return of. migratory  birds .in summer restores it to  a temporary vitality.   ...  Christmas south of the equator  falls 'in, midsummer.

"TWfa; has been ac-  complished over a long period,  at times wia coneiderable dif-  _3culty, but it has been done.  Salary scales are, broadly  speaking, -fairly 'well balaaic-  ed across the province; and  with the adjustments currently being discussed in many dis-  . rtrfcts, wiH work progressively  toward better balance.  Mr. Lester said school -trustees have brag been convinced  that "classroom performance"  is the only proper evaluation  of a teadher; that while salary  scales and fixed annual increments recognize a teacher's  training and advancing experience, they cannot take into account the specific accomplishments of any one teacher. He  pointed out provision is made  for unsatisfactory teaching,  such as the withholding of increments if a teacher has not  progressed sufficiently, but no  provision has been made for  the teacher who- is better than  asverage.  *'And ttrafs wiiere action is  most needed if we are sincere  about wanting quality teaching."  . Mr. Lester said one of his  first steps would be to ask the  joint liaison committee of the  B.C. School IVoatees Association and the B.C? Tfeachers'  Federation, at tircir next meeting, to start wo* at once in  (this field. Later the Department of Education.' and probab-'  ly the College of Education  -night be drawa into the project, but the initial work must  be tarried oat by trustees and  teachers.

Ihis job w_3 can-  fully engineered and u:der the  continual supervision of mu-i-  cjpaf officials while it was be-  -ing carried out. It appears to be  working well.  A major w-^ter works nrojeot  this year was the erection of  a 60,000 gallon storage tank  on Lot 8, Block 1, D.L 686  under the 1960-61 winter  works plan. This lank has been  in- full operation since June  1961 and has been a great help  in maintaining our day to day  storage requirements. The contractor, Smith and (Peterson  Construction. Ltd. did a good  job at a reasonable figure. Because the contract figure was  (reasonable and., because .the  Winter Works program absorbed three-quarters of-the labor  costs, the municipality) obtained  a good ?nd much needed stor-.  age tank at a modest cost.  Tlh.is year we increased  our  'storage facil'ltres, nex;t year we  shall' improve and increcbe our  source of supply at the Municipal watershed.   A  rough  access road shall be built from  the  Henry  Road to the  main  d.-tjm and from the main dam to  Ithe  upper dam.   It   is  at this  point  that a  new concrete  diversionary dam shall be built.  This project will be carried out  under the Winter Works Incentive Program  1961-62   and  because of .this, it is hoped; will  not cost too much, to the municipality.  (Several extensions to malins  shall be installed next year to  ���supply water to areas that have  recently been subdivided.   .  (Continued on Page 5);  Hospital visit  Airman First Class ,J.

Tff-iey lite raw material  "Time[ii the :raw material of life. Every day unwraps itself  like a gift, bringing us the opportunity to spin a fabric of health,  pleasure, and content, and to evolve into something better/then we  are &t its beginning."  The writer of this stumbled across the above quotation while  searching for ah idea 6h which to basearieditorial on the New Year.  The usual type of editorial could havei been written about the bright  future for the Sunshine Coast area but it would be just too, too obvious that the editor was in a nit.  However, on picking up a copy of the Royal Bank monthly letter,  the writer found the paragraph quoted abriVe could ring true not  onlv for 1962 but for any year tocoirie.  ���Continuing the bank letter reads: "The end of a year like the  efid of a day, is riot a time for melancholy brooding. The year has  bfefeh long enough for all that was to be done ih it. The flowers grew  aftd blossomed, the fruit filled out and ripened, wild crdatures fiil-  fijled, in their allotted way, their destiny. Only main feels forlorn at  Vie dying of a year and jubilant because a hew year brings him another chance to fulfil his hopes for himself.  "The gift of time brings no magic, with it. It is only made available. We must study to get the most out of the passing days."  Ih its concluding paragraph the bank letter reads: "Time moves  oft with the deliberation of universal processes that pari afford to be  sidw because they have eternity for completion. As for us, we wake  up in the morning and our purse is magically filled with twenty-four.  hours. We need to seek by all means the best ways in which we may  make the most of our allowance."  There can be no greater wish than to hope that each individual  Will use his or her time in 1962 to the best advantage for all. That  would make any year an outstanding milestone.  So for 1962 why not place a high value on time and not "fritter  ii.away on things tfiat do riot matter. It could make orie happier and  healthier, too.  You can't stay ahead of your bills if you allow them to do all  the running.  ���fc        *        *  The love of gossip!  Love of gossip, especially scandalous gossip, is so ingrained in  the human race that it would be useless to protest about it. One may  deplore the fact that one's next-door neighbor habitually beats his-  wife or that the man two doors away is accustomed to roll in drunk  three nights a week, but one still wants to learn all the details that;  the other neighbors can tell or invent. Even when the subjects of  gosip are unknown to anyone in the neighborhood, the details, if  lurid enough, become everybody's business.  In recent years the everyday scandals of neighborhood, town or  "illage must have become too tame or too similar for satiated appetites. Catering to these, some newspapers and magazines now range  to the distant pastures of Hollywood, Las Vegas or Miami for fascinating titbits. The domestic misadventures of Marilyn^ Brigitte and  Ingrid become front page news across the continent. Essentially:  these are the same as those of the family next door, but plenty of  people must love to read about them or newspapers and press agen-  ��ies; would economize on getting the stories.  The thrill received from such stories may. not be unmixed with  ���envy. Reading'of the ease with which the denizens of Hollywood  change partners, the Canadian small-town wife may gaze wistfully  -at the bald head of her dull, middle-aged husband and wonder whether she riiight-turn him. in oh a new model.        _,/,  On the other hand, her reaction to news of JHoUywpqd's doings  may be -iinilar to that of the Victorian,lady, who remarked, after  watching a performance of Antony and Cleopatra: "How unlike the  home life of our own dear queen!"

A short while  ago a petition was drawn up protesting the re-location of the  Post Office.

Are we to assume that the  merchants are the only ones to  use the Post Office? Surely there  must be a few others, if not, then  Gibsons is really a village apart.  John L.  Gordon.'  Editor*. Farther to, my letter  regarding a Piibiic Bodies Meetings bill being considered y; hi  New Zealand, and your answering editorial in last week's Coast  News, 'A Matter of Self-Defense.'  I might ask "what is self-defense; a product of?" Fear is the  <��� answer. In the case of public  bodies, it would appear that  there is a fear of being told they  could possibly be wrong in some  of their reasonings arid decisions.  When a public body is not questioned, then they must assume  that they are doing the correct  thinking arid administering >ih  the eyes of their electors. When  they are being questioned then  it follows that they must reconsider their questioned thirikiag  and administering. Do public  bodies, elected by taxpayers ��� sip  administer the., iMisiness -Of ^e,.;  taxpayers, feel that once:.elected they may carry; on as they  see fit until re-elected cir deposed.     ���.,/;.        7/7 ..:/.'"kYk  "Why    do    Volunteer    pubjicY  bodies  become  secretive?"   you  ask.- y���.--'j. .'  "Because they Want to?" The  only reason they could want to  be secretive is because the minority of thinking electors might  question their thiriking. This  might raise doubt in the minds  of the general electors and thus  negate a decision.   ...  "Because, they could /not cite  less for public opinion?" Tftey  possibly have reason to^not care  when one. considers the general  apathy, of the majority' of.; eie*_  given, it is not received. The  Ancient Greeks taught the worth  of the individual man ��� they had  caught the vision of democracy  and public bodies held open assemblies forty or fifty times a  year where "the individual could  voice his opinion and be respectfully listened to. Decisions were  then made  according to vote.  To become a member of a  public body is therefore the  "cure" according to your editorial, for the dissentor. In other  words put up or shut up. Let's  have no dissatisfied electors.  The problem here would be the  numbersrhVblyed.  I have figured out Why secrecy  by public bodies has becoriie  a  'matter    of    'self-defence. ;-.:Have;  you? Leslie J. Jackson.  some people receive hospital  care for highly unusual conditions. For instance a man from  the Interior was treated for a  rattlesnake bite, which is considered pretty much of a rarity  in this day and age.

When- a car collides and stops,  itsi occupants keep on; going,  smashing themselves on the roof,  steering wheel .and windshield,  says, the Imperial Oil magazine.  While much thought and effort  is-j,devoted .to preventing accidents, they continue to happen  ��� ["without warning, often to drivers who are not at fault. Therefore, the important point is to  prevent occupants from collid-'  ing with the.inside of the car.  As one precaution, children  should normally travel in the  back, seat, as studies show that  more injuries occur in .the front  seat. Children should be seated  at;-all times. They should never  be'.allowed to. eat candy or Jce  cream on a stick while in the  car.

Some coffee turned out to be less than  pure Brazilian. The roasted  wheat, peas, beans and bread  crumbs found in it had obviously been added closer to home.  As for spices!  These and other unappetizing  discoveries came as the result  of a new piece of federal legislation. The Act'to Impose License.  Duties on the Compounders of  Spirits and to Prevent the Adulteration ,of Food, Drink ; and  Drugs; had been passed in 1874  but it was three years later before the four analysts appointed  to implement it turned in their  first annual report. Of the 180  samples of varied food that had  been examined; 93 turned out. to  be Yadulteratedy  Eighty years later the food and  drug directorate ; of the department of national health and welfare, developing, from these modest  beginnings,   was   examining  BACKHOE & LOADER  DIGGING  TRENCHING  LOADING  WALT   NYGREN    ���    Ph. 886-2350  M1W  Wilkins Construction Co.

Where  each of the original analysts,  working on a fee basis not to  exceed $2,000 a year, had been  allowed up to $300 for equipment  millions of dollars had been invested in modern laboratories.  There was a large central group  in Ottawa and five regional units  strategically located across the  country.  Adulteration was still a problem but its frequency had been  reduced to a point where, even  among' suspected samples, the  frequency was 5% as against the  original figure of 52%. Moreover  the modern analyst was working against a set of standards  where the . early examinations  had���; had no starting point other  than whether a product carried  a threat to health or to life itself.  It was obvious, of course,, from  the kinds of "adulteration ���discovered in the Yearly, days, that a  standard 'was not imperative to  its detection at that time. Today's adulteration - is something  else again. A, pound of., butter  may be delicious in flavor -and  present no danger to health but,  if it has been diluted with cheap-.  er vegetable fats food and drug  directorate is interested. Butter  must contain only' milk fat. It is  the directorate's task to see that  the consumer gets what. he is  led to believe he. is buying.  To do this it is assisted by the  fruits of modern science. In the  food -chemistry section of the Ottawa laboratories is a spectrograph which can detect adulteration in very small quantities.  In many instances if . only an  ounce of adulterant existed in  30 tons of an otherwise pure commodity, the spectrograph would  catch it. Adulteration in lesser  quantities would scarcely be profitable!  Today's Food and Drug act  covers a field as broad and intricate as modern living. It establishes standards, regulates packaging, labelling and advertising,  controls the sale of remedies for  certain designated diseases, specifies drugs to be sold only on  prescription.  Its work is directly connected with the protection of the individual Canadian's health! "In  a very real sense," Hon. J. Waldo Monteith pointed out recently, "the food and drugs administration reaches 'into the kitchen  cupboard and medicine chest of  every home in Canada."  While food and drug inspectors  located from coast to coast, are  the vigilant watchmen of the act,  its ever-increasing effectiveness .  has been rooted in the co-operation of the Canadian producer  and consumer alike. Each as recognized it as an instrument conceived for mutual benefit.  Incorporation of the Alfberta  Junior Forest Warden's as menv  bers of national Junior Forest  Warden organization i s an-  Inouncjed by Dr. B. G. Griffith,  president of the Junior Forest  Wardens association of Canada.  Formal presentation of the provincial charter will be made by  Dr. Griffith and Mr. W. F. My  ring, Chief Warden for Canada.  > The Junior Forest Warden  movement was originated in  British Columbia in 1930 with  three major objects in view:  (1) to create interesit in the  conservation through wise use  of all Canada's renewable natural resources of woods, waiters, soils and wildlife through  youth ��� training programs and  (summer camps for' bolyjs be-  (tweeft therages 'of 10 and 16.  v : (2) To protect the forest resources from* fire, disease and  (insect infestation by upholding  ;all protection laws, by ��� keeping  (people, including parents, dass-  imates; neighbors and the travelling public, informed in regard  ���to forest protection measures,  and by aiding the authorities  (in .the -detection and suppression of ��� fdriest fires whereeveir  and whenever possible.  (3) To promote' an appreciation of the principals of good  citizenship in Canadian youth  through participation in health-.  ' full outdoor- ��� activities' and recreation keyed to an ovier-aH  progralm of community seryice.  Growing appreciation of the  scope and effectiveness of .the  warden: program: brought na-  'ipn-^wide recognition; last year  when., the   movement was  in-  ���'��� corporated as the Junior forest '���'  Wardens "association of Canada.

All in all, the water department had a good year, no>major
breaks and no real - shortages
Ayen if it was a very dry summer.' .
Garbage: As had been planned last -year,- the- municipal
garbage disposal lot was bulldozed and cleared to standards
[satisfactory to ■'•'-.-thje', Forestry
branch. A 7 longitudinal ditch
was then bulldozed out; .into
which ditch aU the garbage is
dumped and burned as.jsoon., as
possible,-fire _©as^h:pennitting.
It has worked reasonably well,
tout to be really efficient, the
(ditch should ;be. longer ..and
deeper. ;It i shall; be-deepened
and wikJe.r-ed next year7
The objectives remain-the
same as last year; to satisfy the
Forestry branch that the disposal lot is not a fire hazard;
ico satisfy- the provincial-sanitation branch that there is no
health, hazard or pollution; and
at the,:same; time, to :keep our
-village -[clean while disposing of
the garbage ef-ioientljyi and
Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department has stayed well within its budget. Five hundred feet
of new..hoae shall be' needed

Jim   Hoidt  Chief"; Bowling Instructors '  Double Diamond ��� Advisory  -Council  ROLLING A CURVE BALL  A "curve" ball is' both the most  effective and least dependable  type of ball you can roll in  bowling.  ~n  ��� Among bowlers, "curves"  only curve to  the left. Any  ball that veers  to the right is  known as a  back-up ball.  A - " curve "  ball begins curv  ing almost the  moment it  leaves your  hand, and it  keeps veering  in a smooth arc  all the way  down the lane.  You roll a  curve by rotating the palm of  your hand inwards,- from  the bottom to  the top of the  ball during  your forward  swing.  It is- a most  effective ball  because it is  spinning ��� hard  all the way  down the ��� lane,  and ��� gives lots  of action when  it hits the pins,  mixing them up  thoroughly. The  Curve- trouble   is,   it's"'  gaU only that effec  tive when it hits  the target. And, with all that'  spin, it's very difficult to put it  onto the target consistently. ��� ���  Because a curve is so hard to'  control, very few good bowlers  use it. Even.a slight difference  in your speed of delivery can  cause a large change in the size  of the curve arid the path of the  ball.  If you are throwing a wide  curve, you ���:- ar��. pretty, well icon-  fined to aiming for the pocket  on the right, of the headpin. If  your wide curve hits {the left  of the headpin, the ball, will  likely ricochet into the gutter,  leaving pins standing. vf  With a curve, you must line  yourself up on your target from  way over to the left side of the  Familiar faces on TV screens  across' the nation are these of  Max Ferguson and Gwen Grant,  hosts ed: CBC'TV's';. women's  (showy Open House.: Every after-  ; noon, Monday ��� through Thursday, they present 30 jhinutes o_  features and ontertairiment of  special interest to women.  lane. For this reason,' you should  use the forward darts, for aiming,  ;rather than aim' by shifting your  position'. From way over- on the  left' of the' lane, you don't have,  any place to shift your'position  to. - .  When aiming, stand either one  or two dots to the left of centre,  depending on the size of your  curve. For the headpin, roll over  the centre dart; for the right  3-pin roll between the centre dart  and the first dart to the right;  for the right corner pin, roll over  the first dart on the right of  centre.  For left side pins, roll between  or' over the dart on the left.  To remedy a curve that is too  heavy for you to control, try  gripping- the, ball with your  thumb held as high up as possible toward the centre of the ball.  This will help prevent your hand  from "flicking" over during delivery.  A curve is also partly caused  by bringing your arm across  your body during your -swing.  Throw the ball with your arm  reaching straight out down the  lane. Even if your hand does turn,  somewhat, straightening out your  arm motion will'cut the curve in  half.
