Ph.  880-2116 ��� Gibsons, B.C.  ' -..���,������    i * ��� *  Sunday, Dec. 15, the executive  of the Sunshine" Coast Tourist  Associatioii held h a regular meeting at Ole's Cove. Attending were  JohnrTo^bee,^'president; Royal  Murdoch, - secretary and area representatives Digby, Porter, Bill  May, Ole Elmhdldt, . Al Lloyd,  Tom Green, Roy .Edmundsori and  Mr. Huck from Greater Vancouver Visitors and Convention Bureau. s  The outstanding point of this  meeting was the fact that it  meant getting up at 5 a.m. on a  Sunday morning for Roy Ed-  mundsonat Lund and only somewhat later for the others.  Probably it was only the  thought of Ole Elmholdt's hospitality and hot coffee at Ole's  Cove that caused such great; .attendance. And ��� certainly, whatever the reason, these men deserve a lot. of credit for their unpaid devotion to improving the  important tourist industry in. .the  area.  The main purpose of the meeting, was to report results of the  campaign, for. memberships in the  association and to plan activities for 1964.  Reports from representatives  from all areas showed a probable  total of $4,500 for membership  fees,; well short of the $6500 to  $7500 objective needed for work  tc.be done.  Agreement was reached on the  need for an increase in membership fees for the future and a-  committee of Toynbee, Murdoch  and Lloyd was appointed to contact the ' advertising agency on  the makeup of the 1964 brochure,  and to report back to a special  executive^ meeting for action.  Mr.:Buck extended an 'invitation to1*Ithe "association .to ,join-  the Greater'Vancouver Visitors  arid Conventions bureau" and to  placea ^member on this directorate:^ He pointed out that this  would mean an inclusion of a  map of the Sunshine Coast area  on the 1964 folder as well as a  page describing this area. As the  planned distribution of this fold,  er is 150.000 copies, it was unanimously decided that this was too  good an opportunity to miss, at a  cost of only $400.  Bottle drive  returns good  The Scouts and Cubs of Gibsons went out on a bottle drive  last Saturday and earned a nice  contribution to their expense  fund. A few people offered cash  donations and this together with  bottle money amounted to $78.60.  The Scouts offer their thanks  to the public for their support  and to those who lent vehicles  or drove them.  John Hind-Smith has been appointed to the district council for  Boy Scouts. He will assume the  role of public relations officer  formerly held by Cy Johnson who  remains as council member but  has been appointed by the Kiwan-.  is club to represent them as  chairman of the Gibsons Group  Committee.  Don Hauka formerly held this  post but retired to become president of the Kiwanis club for 19<?4.  Kiwanis are the sponsorii g group  for Gibsons Scouts and they,  along with parents of Scouts and  the general public are in debt to  the club for their interest and  considerable material support,  their club house on the reserve  being one very good example.  inmimiTOntt\ininirain\Muin\nunm\m��ranmu��\imm��  MISSING!

Her election was by acclamation.  ' > ' * ���       '  Division of the work of the various chairmen took a new angle  this year with trustees becoming  immersed more in their, own general areas than in the entire  school district.  Trustee Reg Spicer of Pender  Harbour was named public relations chairman and will also look  after transportation and building  problems in the Half moon Bay to  Pender Harbour area. Mr. Spicer  was chairman of the 1963'board.  Trustee Leo Johnson will be  chairman of the policy committee and.look after buildings and  grounds in Sechelt and' Roberts  Creek areas.

"vVC-  The children performed extremely well in their singing' and  recitations: ~  Highlight  of the evening  was-  the nativity tableau in an impressive  blue  lighted  setting,   backgrounded by recordings and choir  singing.  Those taking part were Carol  Mylroie and Sandra Ward, as  Mary and Joseph, Ann Fitzsim-  mons, Carol Lasser and Christine  Hanson as the Wise Men and  David Johnson, Danny Austin  and Terry Forshner as the shepherds. The tableau closed with  The. Little Drummer Boy ably  played on the drum "by Robbie  Boyes.  All scenery and settings were  made by Mr. and Mrs. E. Ya-  blonski and the senior class.  of Mrs. Celiac Fisher and Mrs.  C. M. Volen will take care of  finance. Both Mrs. Fisher and  Mrs. Volen, new trustees," will  jointly look after transportation  building and grounds problems  in the Gambier and Bowen Islands and Gibsons area.  Mrs. Leslie Jackson, also a  new trustee, will take charge of  Sechelt Motor Transport school  bus service and Joseph Horvath,  new trustee representing Roberts  Creek will be vice-chairman and  look after personnel problems as  well. Mrs. Ball, chairman, will  also\ keep the educational matters chairmanship she had last  year.  The board decided .that in view  of the retirement of H. -J. Chaster as maintenance supervisor in  October a replacement would  have to be obtained.  As the result of a backfire in  the Sechelt school furnace after  school hours, the board has. decided to have that furnace replaced.

Hydro officials, warned  first by the Coast News, found  the break as quickly as they  could and had power on soon afterwards; The Coast News was  vitally interested because it had  planned an early finish to the  printing of that week's issue to  allow the staff the half-day off.  With about 400 papers to go power failed with astonishing suddenness. The half-day turned out to  be a quarter day off for the  staff.  The Hydro office in Sechelt was  - flooded with calls all the way  from Wilson Creek t0 beyond  Gibsons between 12:40 and 2:10  pin. when power was again  turned on.  Sunday morning's break was  caused by a transformer blowing  out at Roberts Creek. This resulted in a two-hour'blackout shortly  -after Saturday midnight resulting  in electric clocks being two hours  slow next morning. The three  Sunday    outages    each    lasting  : about one minute, werev the result  of'hydro system switching to get  the various areas involved off  the  Roberts   Creek  transformer  Vsystem.' ���  - ���  \--''  ''" jWho chopped the alder down in  the  ravine  on the  Tuesday  re  mains a mystery because no one  has claiined it since.

Hubbs outlines  donation angles  Mr. H. Hubbs, chairman of the  building committee of St. Mary's  Hospital board, at the Masonic  Hall, Thursday, clarified many  nebulous and much - discussed  ideas regarding donations and  contributions to the building now  inprogress, for O.E.S. members.  Mr. Hubbs made it quite clear  that money given towards the  hospital would in no way detract  fromJ the amount of "the government grant but would greatly add  to the quality and quantity of its  furnishings.  Since the cost of building continues to rise, the grant buys less  materials. All contributions, are  welcome. To furnish one bedroom costs $783.90, and a two-  bed ward, $1192.53.

(By MADGE NEWMAN)  Roberts Creek talent which  made its appearance Family  Night, Saturday, at the Masonic  Hall, could be near-professional  ���but not very near.  Their efforts were billed first  on the program probably in the  hope that they could sneak it  in while Mrs. Rose Jay's troupe  from Vancuover were dressing  and unable to witness them.  It is unnecessary to say much  about the performance of Mrs.  Jay's gifted artists except that  they were in their usual excellent forml Dancers Maureen  Cook, Bonnie Moffat, Gayle  Haivarb and Darlene Leinbach  delighted their audience as did  Maureen Cook's singing.  Barry Leinbach with his trumpet and Michael Cook in recitation and dance, gave excellent  performances. The accompanying pianist was Mrs. G. Colanges  well-known in music circles in  Vancouver. Mrs. Jay's singing  was thoroughly enjoyed.  Young Brian Swanson,  of Ro  berts Creek, also contributed  with selections on the accordeon.  Job's Daughters presented an  amusing pantomime as also did  the De Molay boys.  The more dignified, older  members of OES presented a  sad tale, also in pantomime,  about a well-known double killing, "The Shooting of Dan McGrew."  The heroine in the affair, a  lady named Lou, whose last  name is not known, was beautifully gowned and made up, but  slightly on the muscular side,  got that way, no doubt, from  fighting off wolves. There are  many in the frozen north, where  the shooting took place.  Dan; on the other hand, was  a dainty figure faultlessly attired in tux and bowler. The  stranger from the creek was  really "ugh" but with dainty  hands and feet, as were the men  who gathered to drink at the  Malamute.  The platinum-haired dance hall  girls  were  such  as  would  lure  any cold, but red blooded miner  into the din and the glare of a  saloon. The kid who handled  the music box was a sight and  in no condition to play a piano,  and the barman wasn't helping  him much. The prop man had  recently lost weight judging by  the fit of his clothes.  The narrator was Mrs. H. Mylroie and the cast included Mes-  dames C. Cameron, B. Wood,  B. Shaw, G. MacDonald, E.'  Wardil, M. Swan, P. Pearson,  K. Frariske and Harry Mylroie  and Chris Wood.  Dancing down stairs was preceded by a buffet supper, convened by Mrs. G. Cumming, in  a room made festive with  streamers and balloons, work of  the decorating committee and  the young folk.  Bob Cumming 'was an able  master of ceremonies. Mrs. C.  Cameron played for much of the  dancing. A beautiful basket of  fruit donated by Jim Swan,  when raffled became the property of W. Morrison.  During the last five years more  than one -million-dollars worth of  new construction-in the form of  homes and commercial-buildings  have gone up in the village of  Gibsons.  The actual figure according to  official tabulations is $1,101,874,  taking the year by year reports  of Gibsons municipal clerk, Jules  A. Mainil. By years here are the  totals:  1959 $159,978  1960 152,150  1961 231,400  1962 279,346  1963 279,000  Total  $1,101,874  This means about 100 new  homes ,over the five years or an  average of 20 or more a year.  It should not be surmised that  the figures are total costs in the  construction work undertaken.  Usually the estimate on a building permit is a.minimum and with  no stretch of the imagination  about 33 percent could be added  to the average 'building costs  above the permit figure to bring  ''   *  -  the figure into line with actuality.  One-third  of  the   permit   total  for the five years would mean an  "   additional. $367;000   which  would  bring the total for the five years  up to $1,468,874.  This has added to tax collections in the municipality and has  * also added to servicing costs  such as expenses for roads, water  lines, street lighting and other  outlays.  On this basis it would not be  out of the way to suggest that  total construction plus municipal  work involved would make the  financing in new construction for  Gibsons closer to the two million  dollar mark.  Gibsons has a good start for  1964 with $27,000 worth of building construction before members  of Gibsons council at Monday  night's meeting.' Permits were  granted to K. E. Nygren for a  four room $8,000 home on Gower  Point road; L. O. Hunter of Vancouver for a four room $8,000  home on the Bluff; A. J .Fletcher  for a five room $10,000 home on  Abbs "road and a $1,000 garage  for Frank Verhulst on South Fletcher Road.  Annual report by  Gibsons clerk  Following what has in effect  become a custom in this Municipality, I beg to submit this report, showing briefly a summary  of 1963. business and attempting  some forecast of prqbable needs  and projects for 1964.  ��  FINANCES: While the year's  books are not as yet closed, I  can safely state that there will  be a small surplus caused rnain-,  ly by Council's^thrifty adririnis-  ��� ~tration^> ^-^ "'T^ -���--������;/;- .��--  ROADS:;.A normal road and  drainage program was carried  out. Scotland and Adamson Ltd.  did all the paving, curb laying  and repairing. As usual, their  work was good. The main projects were:  1. Laying in drainage rock a.  seven hundred foot perforated  steel culvert along the west side  of Marine Drive from Beach ���  Avenue to sixty feet from Jacks  Lane. A one hundred foot long  rock retaining wall was erected  by the Department of Highways  adjacent to the Marshall and  Butler properties at the same  time. When the backfilling of  this wall-is completed, it will  make a fine job. All the wooden  steps disturbed by the Municipality in carrying out this work  have, as is now the policy of  the Municipality, been replaced  by concrete steps. All in all, this  has  been  a  good  and  valuable  job; it has opened the Highway  at that point, arid created safe  . parking, space.  2. A closed perforated steel  drainage line was laid along "  the Gower Point Road adjacent  to the new Post Office. Curbs  were laid and approaches paved  to the same building, along, the  Winn Road. .-.'.,���  .3.

Holland did  a good job on this; the road is  very steep^and would easily be  cut by down-rushing surface waters unless the. proper precautions were taken.

All used improved roads  were gravelled, and kept in reasonable condition.  PARKS & BEACHrS: A violent storm in the V'-ter of 1962  had broken up the string of  floats at the Municipal wharf.  Council was fortunate to be able  to buy- some reasonably good  surplus floats from Crown Assets Corporation. Harry Smith,  ably aided by Fred Holland,  (Continued on Page 3)  Chairmen chosen  At Gibsons municipal council  meeting Monday night the new  council composed of Chairman A.  E. Ritchey,  Councillors Norman  MacKay, James Drummond and  Fred Feeney were seated aftor  the re-elected chairman and newly elected Mr. Drummond and  Mr. Feeney were sworn in by  Clerk Jules A. Mainil. Councillor Sam Fladager, sick in bed,  was unable to attend.  When committee chairmen  were selected Chairman Ritchey  retained the finance chairmanship; Councillor Fladager, water,  recreation and vice-chairman of  council; Councillor MacKay,  roads, parks, beaches and street  lights; Councillor Drummond, civil defence and building permits  and Councillor Feeney, library,  fire, health, welfare and sanitation.  The provincial government  roads department has changed  its plan for the taking over of a  portion of the old United Church  property to increase the road allowance around that property, it  was announced at Monday night's  meeting of Gibsons village council.  The new plan envisages taking  less property, in fact about half  planned originally, so there will  be better traffic visibility in  both directions. A corner slice  will be taken off the Marine Drive  corner of the church area and a  larger slice will be taken off the  top on the Sunshine Coast Highway. The original plan wouid  have cost the provincial government about $1,200 but the new  plan will cost $650 to buy the necessary land. Highways officials  decided the original plan took in  more land than was needed.  A grant of $10 was made to the  Salvation Army and another of  $50 to the Sunshine Coast Tourist  association which had asked for  $100.  Mrs. Peggy Volen, Gibsons  school trustee, appeared before  council, offering her co operation  to council on school matters. It  would not be possible for her to  attend all council meetings, she  said, but when needed she would  be  available  with  information.

Some would like to see areas set aside with the  obvious-sized apartments or single units operating as a community.  Others prefer to keep their old folks closer at hand.  The average, experience with elderly people is that they are  an independent lot. So they should be!. They have lived a life filled  with considerable experience of living and feel quite capable of finishing out their lives in their own fashion.  United States developers of communities tailored to suit the  elderly have built quite expansive communities for elderly people  and are finding that they are not being snapped up. There is the  natural resentment of being isolated which elderly people continually fight and rightly so. We have organizations for the aged which  are mainly social yet keep an eye on welfare operations. This should  be ample. Their private lives should be left entirely in their own  hands. Personal dignity should be respected. This dignity asks that  their choice of what they prefer to do, how they want to live 'and  where, should be considered.  The Sunshine Coast is an excellent example  of how elderly  folk can take care of themselves. Usually their wants are few and  with the mild type of weather on the Sunshine Coast it is the mecca  for many and some of them not so old.  Films edited by the clock!  The CBC is a peculiar set-up in some respects. At times it  will go to unnecessary length to present sometSmg on TV which  they know will stir up controversy. Sometimes this material is definitely borderline. Yet they do not turn a hair when criticized and  it can be suspected, smirk in the privacy of their sanctums, feeling  that their job must have been well done.  However there are times when one wonders. The CBC naturally pleases itself about what it does and how it does it. This was  apparent in last Saturday night's presentation of The Informer, a  real epic produced by John Ford with Victor McLaglen in the leading role.  This is what the CBC Times said of this picture in order help  get viewers to look at it: "The Informer which will be telecast this  week on Starlight Theatre, won three Academy Awards (best director, best action and best score) when it was first released in 1935.  More than 25 years later it is still regarded as one of the best of  Hollywood films and it was recently included in the British Film Institute cycle of Fifty Famous Films."  ' If John Ford or Victor McLaglen had viewed what the CBC  presented as The Informer on Saturday night they would have wept.  It most certainly was not the epic as described in the CBC Times.  True some of the outstanding scenes were shown. However they were  not sufficient to give the impression that John Ford's The Informer  was presented. Slicing this masterpiece to fit an hour on the clock  was sacrilege.  The slicing of some of the un-understandable "epics" shown  on CBC-TV apparently will not be tolerated by CBC producers. They  are "epics" which should be boiled down harshly to not more than  a half-hour show. Next time CBC decides to give the public The Informer let's have it as John Ford produced it. He did make a fine  picture.  The Davis Ottawa Diary  By  JACK  DAVIS.  MP.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  Some people have been wondering whether their present  pension plans will be effected by  the introduction, of the Canada  Pension Plan. Prime Minister  Pearson had something to say  on this subject recently in the  house of commons. He promised  that those who are now contributing to private plans will  not suffer any loss as a result  of new federal legislation in this  field.  Private plans already cover  nearly 2,000,000 employees in  Canada. More than 5,000  schemes are in effect. Some of  them offer benefits well in excess of the proposed Canada  Pension Plan.  What happens to the savings  which are now being built up  under these existing private  pension plans? And, will these  people be able to pay for both  types of schemes once the Canada Pension Plan is in effect?  In his reply to Mr. Diefenbaker  Mr. Pearson said, quite categorically, that:  '.'In     the    plan that we will  eventually put  forward,  the in  terests of those who are' now  contributing to private plans  will be protected. They will not  lose out as a result of the Canada Pension Plan."  This assurance will be of special interest to the members  of parliament who are being  asked to serve on the special  parliamentary committee to do  with pensions. Such a committee  is being set up to hear witnesses  and explore the various features  of the Canada Pension Plan before it is finally submitted to  the house of commons and becomes law.  Numerous other questions are  bound to be asked. Some will relate to the size of the contribution, starting at 1% of each employee's income. Others will be  concerned with the size of the  benefits. Still others will be concerned with the impact of the  Canada Pension Plan on the insurance industry as a whole.  Fortunately, if experience elsewhere can be taken as a guide,  the public will be more convinced than ever that it should provide for the future and that private as well as public pension  plans are worthwhile invest-  , ments for all concerned.  No single factor has a more  decisive influence on human  beings than water, arid every  drop we use comes from our  watersheds.  A watershed that is well cared  for will hold water throughout  the year. Its tree and plant  roots, its dead leaves and top-  soil, hold a great deal of water  in their spongelike mass. Some  water stays in the subsoil, but  much goes still farther down to  form hidden rivers and lakes.  On a watershed where 24 inches of precipitation reaches the  soil a plot only ten feet square  receives and disposes of about  6.25 tons of water a year. An  acre receives 2,718 tons. In the  orderly disposition of this huge  amount of water every piece of  ground, a square foot, an acre,  or a square mile, performs a  vitally important function.  Yet water is the commodity  most taken for granted, most  abused, most wasted. Many a  city and town that only a few  years ago had adequate reservoir capacity always comfortably full of water now finds that  its expansion is limited by shortage. Farmers have to dig deeper wells. ,  When rain falls jr^n a barren hillside it eats away channels for itself, racing to plunge  itself into a watcrcc;,vse headed  directly for the sea. There is the  first place to catch and retain  it. The amount of water stored  in the ground is dependent upon  the condition of.the soil and the  grass and the forest cover of  the watershed. When forested  hills are denuded by burning or  cutting, when upland ranges are  overgrazed, when cropland becomes eroded, the rainfall runs  off the hard surface of the  ground without performing its  proper function.  A . key factor in conserving  water is our forest.  There are three stages of forest history in an industrial country. The first is marked by energetic and often ruthless exploitation of virgin forests. This  is generally followed by a period  of increasing dependence, on  foreign supplies, such as the  United States is now suffering.  Then ^comes the third chapter,  in which an effort is made to  rehabilitate or partially restore  the forest resources.  The violation of natural laws  governing the extent Of forest  cover Js one. of the most tragic  examples of human folly inr the  face of nature's wisely ordered  system.  We have pushed back the forest with fire and axe and bulldozer; we have used the hoe  and the plough where only trees  should grow. We have ignored  the fact that forests are living  societies of trees, shrubs and  other forms of plant cover, playing a necessary part in evolution, of which we think of ourselves as being the highest form.  Our destiny is wrapped up  with that of the forest. We in  Canada have been supplied by  nature with the kinds of trees  best suited to meet human  needs. Because our climate provides growing conditions so  satisfactory that in most regions, if fire is kept out, there  need be no fear of not securing  a second growth after cutting,  we may have ample trees for  all our needs if we prove ourselves  to be  good stewards.  Ninety percent . of Canada's  forested land is owned by the  Crown, and operating companies  are required by law to prepare  management plans for leased  lands. This is important, because of the time element in  the regrowth of trees. A man  who cuts down a tree is limited,  in his outlook by his own lifetime, and may have no interest  in whether another tree replaces  it in fifty or a hundred years,  but the outlook of governments  is for the lifetime of the nation.  We must respect the basic  principles and laws governing  the whole living community if  we are to be successful in maintaining human life. The trees,  the grass, the shrubs, the soil  and the living creatures that inhabit are parts of one vast living organism. That is the principle on which watershed  management rests.  turn    aside'  the    replenishment  that is their due.  Management is necessary . if  we do not wish to balance the  supply of water by rationing it.  Instead of putting meters on our  taps to cut off our supply of  water ' after we had drawn  enough for two percolators of  coffee a day and one bath and  one washing per week, we would  be wise to increase the supply  by providing the proper water  conservation environment in our  watersheds.  Natural laws impose limitations and obligations on us.  Whether it is convenient to us  or not,' whether it is politically  expedient or not, water is going  to run downhill, and its destructive force is going to increase  with the rate of runoff; water  is going to become impure if  we pour impurities into it; water tables are going to sink if  we pump water out of them and  This goes far beyond narrow  emergency measures. It seeks,  to control and distribute the  storage and distribution of water according to the needs of  our. increasing population. It .becomes the sum of all the grass  stems, tree roots, and the leaves  of shrubs; it counts in all the  trickles of water, - the snow  banks on the high peaks, summer storms and marsh drainage. It is total receptivity, adequate storage and elimination of  waste. It takes account not only  of present yield and profit, but  also of inventory and deferred  benefits.  In a well-managed watershed  forests and grassland will be  preserved or augmented according to need. Cutting .of timber  will be done in such a way as  to cause the least possible damage to the Merest floor and to  !-eev> pmpi^ timber growing.  Farming will use . methods that  prevent erosion and increase the  absorptive quality of the soil.  Industrial use and sewage treatment will avoid pollution. Watchfulness will subdue fires started  by natural causes. and the law  will prevent the setting of fires  by human beings who are malevolent or careless. Grazing  will be regulated so as to avoid  destroying the plant cover or  compacting the soil.  To protect our watersheds  must be, because of the magnitude of the task, a job for governments working together.  Quebec and Ontario need to act  jointly on the Ottawa River Valley problems; interprovincial  and national co-operation is  necessary for such river basins  as the Fraser, Columbia, Saskatchewan,    Nelson    and    Saint  Mainly  about  People  Travelling friends drop a card  to the Coast News every once  in a while and Pat Welsh formerly of Halfmoon Bay reports  she is receiving the Coast News  regularly and the weather there  is atrocious.

The St. Lawrence watershed involves international as  well as inter-provincial action.  Smaller watersheds, we might  call them "local," require the  co-operative action of' individuals, of municipal and county  councils. The concept of the local  watershed approach to water  resource conservation. and development is just beginning to  be effectively understood and  applied. The farmer who plants  a woodlot on a hillside and terraces or contours his fields is  not, only contributing to his own  welfare but is discharging a  duty to everyone between him  and the ocean. When > he bands  together with neighboring farmers to form an integrated plan  he makes his neighborhood a  betteryplace to live in, improve  his 'social and economic conditions, and gives the higher authorities an example they will  be ashamed not to follow.       ���  Major works, such as large  dams or levees or big reclamation projects are beyond the  scope of local watershed man-  agement.Although   the      British  North America Act retained for  the federal authority jurisdiction  over certain aspects -of water  use, responsibility for regulation  anu , ueveiopment rests largely  with the' provincial governments.  This does riot mean that political  views should intervene. Only by  shifting attention from the merely political to the, basic biological aspects of the human situation regarding water supply can  we mitigate and shorten the  times of troubles into which our  present course is leading us.  eitWCATES FF-VTUHK.

This year the municipality  bought the old United Church  property to be made into and  be used as: a park in perpetuity..  In 1964 the old church building  shall be moved, the corner shall  /be widened and improved by the  department of highways and  work shall be started in developing the small Memorial park.  ..Work, has started on the small  park located on the southern  side of Block F, District Lot 685,  or as it is better known, the  Bluff. This park, donated to the  municipality by Mr. E. Gibbs,  is a spot of superlative beauty.  Water  WATER DEPARTMENT: Expenditures in this department  will again be up to estimates  as to maintenance and operating expense and slightly above  estimates on capital mainly due  to the growth of the Village. The  major projects in the Water Department were: i  1. Installation of some 23 new  metered services.  2. A new three inch line over  a half mile in length was laid  from the upper diversionary  dam down to the main reservoir.  The new diversionary dam and  this new line; make it possible  to save for use a good supply  of water, which previously simply ran away.  3. Some 550 feet of 2" galvanized main was laid down the  Sergeant road, 600 feet of 2"  galvanized main was laid down  the Dogwood road, and some  650 feet of the same 2" galvanized main was laid down the lower portion of the Abbs road; in  all, over 1800 feet of 2" galvanized main with all necessary  valves, standpipes and connections.  4. Eighteeri hundred feet' of  old disintegrating wooden 3"  main running along the east side  of Marine Drive from the old  Bank of Montreal corner to the  Chekwelp reserve was replaced  by a new 4" transite main, complete with all necessary valves  and hydrants. Burroughs Bros.,  who had the contract for this  work, did a very fine job,  scarcely disturbing either the  traffic or the water service. It  would be advisable, if financially possible in 1964, to renew a  further portion of the old wooden 3'r main with 4" transite. The  more ._ important waterworks  projects for 1964 should be:  1. The installation of a 900  foot 2" pressure equalizating  main from the southern end of  the O'Shea Road line- down to  the Abbs Road line. Mr. Russell  Plows has very kindly given  the municipality an easement  through his property for this  line.  2. A major aquafer and engineering survey of the municipal watershed in order to  make possible to plan for both  the immediate and long range  water needs of the municipality.  3. The locating, boring and  equiping of two largish wells in  the watershed and, if successful,  incorporating them in the  gravity portion of the Municipal  water system.  The increasing demand for water due not only to growth in  the village but to greater unit  consumption per modern home  is being met with efficiency and  foresight.  Health  HEALTH AND SANITATION:  The garbage disposal method  used in the municipality continues    to    operate    reasonably  well. The disposal lot is kept in  good order by burning, trenching and covering.  ��� Sewage and Disposal: Due to  the present notable growth in  the municipality, and due to the  probability of an accelerated  growth in the not too distant  future, it was decided to have  a sewage survey made of both  the municipality and. of the surrounding area which eventually  will probably become a part of  the Village or Town. The survey dealt with the collection,  treatment and disposal of sanitary sewage. This work was carried out in a very satisfactory  manner by Consulting Engineer  Martin J. J.: Dayton. Council is  fully aware of the heed for planning in this expanding community; . this survey is an important  step iri that direction.  LIBRARY: The library continues to be an important source  of pleasure and recreation for a,  large body Of our citizens. The  need for more, space for the  library and for a small museum  will be" met by moving the old  United Church somewhere adjacent to the present library  building. To the Library Board  and to all volunteer. workers,  once again, a very sincere  thank you from this office.  Firedept.  GIBSONS VOLUNTEER FIRE  DEPARTMENT: This department continues to be efficient,  economical and of great service  to the community. Continuing the  now established municipal policy;  of procuring some new and essential fire fighting equipment,  an Akron Piercing Applicator  and a Scott Air Pak were purchased in 1963; both are first  class tools. . This, is" the first  year that the rest rooms, built  by the firemen at the municipal  beach, have been iri operation.  These rest rooms are a great  asset to our beach. These facilities were used sensibly and with  care, the children using them  are to be commended.  uilding  BUILDINGS. AND  BUILDING  PERMITS: Some 40 building  permits valued at $279,000 were  issued this year. These varied  from $200 garages to $17,000  homes, to an excellent $40,000  business building, and to a $35,-  000 Public Health centre. The  last mentioned was sponsored  by the Kinsmen's Club of Gibsons and district, who financed  the construction of the building  with some of - their own funds  and very substantial grants "from  the federal, provincial and municipal governments.  The municipality provided the  land, a $2,500 grant this year  and a further $2,500 grant will  be made in January 1964. Over  arid above this, the municipality  is providing the sewage disposal  system at a cost of some $2,600.  It is an attractive building arid  shall be a real asset to the community. All construction is under the continuing supervision  of Building Inspector James  Stewart, who is doing a fine job.  This year the house, numbering system was put into effect.  The numbers are gradually being put up on the i homes, the  telephone book has inserted  them and people are starting to  use them iri their addresses. The  village, has put up several additional road signs to facilitate  the use of the house numbers.  The terrain and shoreline of this  community make it difficult to  both devise and apply a numbering system.  Airport  GIBSONS - SECHELT AIRPORT MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE: This joint committee  continues to function well. Two  small parcels of land have been  purchased for the airport this  year. This additional land will  make it possible to extend the  runway to 4,400 feet when it becomes necessary. This airport is  an ever growing asset to the  whole area.  CTVIL DEFENCE: Civil defence is receiving continuing attention, there is a good local  organization, so set up as to be  able to carry on in the event, of  a minor or major emergency.  Good liason exists between the.  local group and headquarters at  ��� Vancouver.  GENERAL WORK & MAINTENANCE: Renovation and  maintenance is going on continually. The water system, from  which increased demands are  continually made, must be  supervised at all times. Pumps  must be operated as needed and  breaks repaired as quickly as  possible so as not to unduly disrupt the service to the public.  Ditches and culverts must be  kept free of debris; steps, sidewalks and lanes must be serviceable. Works Foreman F. Holland carries out all these essential jobs cheerfully and efficiently.  CONCLUSION: This is a general report, in no way meant to  give detailed information about  the year's operation.  May I conclude by thanking  council for its kindness to the  clerk, and the citizens of Gibsons for their continuing cooperation and courtesy when  dealing with this office.

The flounder  The flounder, a peculiar fish  with both eyes on one side of its  body, can match the background  color of the ocean bed by flooding  or draining its body of color.  Certain reef fish adjust their colors to the amount of light found  at  different  depth.  Some fish even manage to disguise their activities by amazing  manipulation of the strips in  their patterns. When darting forward;, tihey change transverse  lines to longitudinal ones which  tend to conceal their movements.  The stripes quickly resume their  transverse position when the  fish draws up short. Some creatures, on the other hand, find  their best protection is to adver.  tise their presence with a vivid  display of colors, a sort of anti-  camouflage.  Such creatures, of course,,  must possess some characteristic so distasteful to others that  a conventionally, camouflaged  coat would serve no useful purpose. The skunk is a good example. His loud,. distinctive coat  is quickly associated, in the minds  off hij\s potential enemies with  unpleasant odor and rarely fails  to ward off intruders. ���.

The festival, open to all league  bowlers, is a beat-your-average  competition in three steps.  The grand champ of all four  categories was Mrs. Alice Stitt  of Port' Coquitlam, who entered  the Festival with a registered  average of 90 and came up with  an amazing 221.3 average in the  finals.

Fortunately the  family escaped unharmed but  lost all their possessions.  Another potentially-dangerous  fire was caused by a cigarette  butt thrown from a passing car  which set fire to the brush between the poles of the B.C. Hydro voltage regulator at Selma  Park. As the poles were creqsbt-  ed power could have been disrupted for some time. There  were two fires in chesterfields  caused Jby cigarettes which  could also have been serious.

I BCO��XC  THANKS   FIRE  DEPARTMENT  Back in 1950 Mr. and Mrs.  John Cattanach , thanked Gibsons fire department for their  prompt - action during an outbreak of fire in their Gower,  Point home.  THE   WEEK'S   LETTER:    "I  am thirteen years old and I am  very jealous of my older sister.  She gets to go places, to do lots  of" things. I can do nothing. All  I do is stay at home. What can  I do about it?"  OUR REPLY: you can look  forward to the time when you,  too, will be old enough to go  places and "do things." Don't  waste your time being "jealous"  r��� of your sister or anyone else.  We say "waste your time" because that's just what you do  when you permit yourself to be  jealous or envious. You can find  things to be happy about, if you  try.  Be yourself. Don't worry about  others, or about what others  may have or do. You are not  just like everyone else. You are  an individual.  When you are old enough, you  will be able to go places and do  things. As you grow. older, you  will find more and more things  to be happy about. On the other  hand, if you don't want to be  happy, you can make yourself  miserable the rest of your life.  You can be "jealous" of the fact  that someone has more clothes,  a better job, has more friends,  etc.  As we said, jealousy is wasted  motion. Don't worry about others too much. Think about yourself. Think about what you -can  do to improve yourself, to be a  better person, to get the things  out of life that will make you  happy. And, don't think that the  (By C. D. SMITH)  fact    you    "want"    something  means  that it will be good for  you. You have to be honest with,  yourself.  ' If you are honest, you will  realize you have no reason to  be jealous of an older sister.  If you have a teenage problem you want to discuss, or an  observation to make, address  your letter to FOR AND ABOUT  TEENAGERS. ��� Coast News.  jiniuittuiuiiuiinuuuMuuiiuuuiniiuHiunmiiiiiiiiiimuuuiih.
