A- proposal to place a large  lighted cross on -.-"'.the high point  of the bluff at the east end of  Gibsons for next Christmas, has  been proposed by Sam Fladager,  . a member : of Gibsons village  council and spokesman for Gibsons merchants' Christmas committee. *...; .���'���, ���������;.'  Mr^ Fladager made this proposal .:' after reviewing 'merchants'  efforts' towards this year's old  fashioned Christmas. It is the  merchants', idea to have more  organized carol singing -and further expand the theme started  last, year to put more of .Christ  back into Christmas/  One really bright spot was the  Catholic church choir singing  cards outside ' numerous homes  in the area^Next^year-Mr^FhuiU  ager would like to see more organizations taking part. This  year saw the merchant carollers  and the choirs of St. Bartholomew's'Anglican   church,  Mfcst  (iiy nanCy^nglis) ;;.;-;  Friday, Dec!" 20, theclosing of  schoolfor the Christriias holidays, saw ...the; presentation of a  concert' of high, quality;. Although  Friday morning found yihariy stu-,  dents in exam rooms,-the afternoon was the beginning .of.the  long awaited holidays.  .After the noon lunch period- a  general locker .clean-up marked  the beginning of an eventful afternoon. The students were gener  ;ally^ in a gay mood' as the entertainers displayed their, talents. Musicians arid dancers of  a high quality were appreciated  by all. The soloists and choir  with its sing-along carols caused  a delightful wave of activity  throughout the audience. Judi  Gathercole showed a; great talent as she put on a one man  skit. Everyone involved put 'on a  fine show..  Following the concert there  was a inixer which was to last  until the closing of school at the  regular time. The surprise of the  day came when who should have  appeared but Santa ;Claus himself  ��� complete with eye glasses. ^  (All in-all the day was a happy/  "one, (; thanks to: the co-operation  of teachers and students.  Pure Heart of Mary Catholic  church, Gibsons United Church  and the Glad Tidings church taking part in carol singing.

Mr.-Baikie said there are two  reasons-for the upsurge of interest ��� the logging industry  has had a good year financially  and the program of panel discussions has. drawn interest  from large companies as well as.  'the smaller logging ootfits.  "We are plannirig to: host  2000 people at, the annual dinner at the PNE Show Mart, and  we confidently expect to sell  out," he said.

Sechelt Elementary School presented its Christmas variety pro-"  "gran^tn^tlie'y^^vity^rooinr pn-  Thursday afternoon, Dec. 19. -All  but the kindergarten participated in the profusion, of items  which the.audience of pupils thoroughly en joyedi The 13 items on  the program made /a - very full  two hours of entertaining ,and  being entertained.  ..The-printed program was the  work of the pupils of Grade 7,  .the art work -being: done by Trevor Oram and Robert Gerber,  who used Nativity scenes as the  main motif. Each teacher and  -class prepared at least one item  for the program drawing on topics in their school wcr?: in reading, socials, music and physical  education. ��� The program provid- -  ed an ideal outlet for creative activities "in language, music and  other subjects. And of- course the  children enjoy seeing and hearing  their-fellow pupils on the stage.  Grade seven girls under the direction of Mrs. Elsie Seymour  sang the Twelve Days of Christmas most ably, setting a cheerful seasonal tone for the after  noon's program. Bill Frigon and  Abeiiha' Sturani   introduced   the  ?:-songs by^r^^Th^mpsWff-Grade'  :ls.

The financial aspect of the Sechelt district school board's referendum seeking $339,000 for additional school property, rooms and  equipment was explained. The explanation omitted a vital point and  to give all Coast News readers correct facts the breakdown is published again with the omitted information added.  .-;.'.  Here is the breakdown:        '  From $339,000 to 57 cents is quite a drop.  The $339,000 is what Sechelt School District ratepayers are asked to vote on next January 25. in order the school trustees can arrange   for   more   much needed classrooms and get along with its  building program.  The 57 cents per thousand assessment dollars is what ratepayers of the district will have added to their taxes to cover the  financing of the amount required.  Actually under the Home Owner Grant not many taxpayers  will have to pay more than the required $1.  Here is a breakdown of the referendum; amount showing just  what district ratepayers will pay towards the $339,000 referendum:  Total cost of program-  . $339,000  District's share of that cost 169,500  1963 taxable assessment of this district $32,229,448  Cost .of the program for the first year (estimated)  Principal repaymerit $17,000  Interest at $339,000 at 6% 20,340  Total payment for 1964 $37,340  Districts share of that total (Y2) $18,670  Increase in mill rate on total assessment of $32,229,448���.57  mills.  At this point trie omission crept in. Thev last sentence ending  showing an increase of .57 mills should have continued on to read ���  an increase of 57 cents per thousand dollars of assessment.  As most ratepayers will be paying one dollar only under the  Homeowner grant, the slightly more than half-dollar per thousand  dollars of assessment will not create any increase as they still will  pay $1 only.  many friends  .

We shall have to get used to that figure and stop marking our  cheques and correspondence 1963 as quickly as possible.  What can we hope for the New Year? We can try for the best  there is. We might fall short and yet ��� we might jUst make it.  One thing we can do and that is to show more kindliness to fellow human beings. It would be a simple thing to do.  We can show more of the milk of human kindness towards our  authorities and give them the support they require in order to carry  on their chores of office. . ..,  A letter- written for a newspaperman's publication by I. H.  Schwartz of Cincinnati!, Ohio, reads in part: "In some measure our  unutterable loss is the cumulative effect of the selfish view of free  speech no less than the anarchistic professional haters' views of their  tights ... I have watched with growing fear the headline asset of the  hate-news for many years. .. Has the press advanced by featuring  the bigots?"  Prime Minister Pearson during the holiday period also spoke up  against the spreading of hatred and bigotry. There is a growing alarm  at the general attitude which is growing against our constituted authorities, those, same, authorities who see that the right of free speech  is"notcurbed''Tin. spifeof the attacks they must face. '  So perhaps if we during 1964 can stir up some of the milk of human kindness we can finish the year in a better frame of mind than  we suspect possible.  It could have been worse!  A dark thought arises out of the recent long spell of rain. That  dark thought is: What if that rain had fallen as snow?  It would have been disasterous. Stores would not have been able  to open because roads would have been blocked. The provincial roads  department would have faced a real crisis. It would have been deep  snow because one inch of rain represents ten inches of snow. During  December we had 7.85 inches of rain. Transpose this into snow and  you will have 78.5 inches of snow. In 24 hours near Christmas we  Jiad 2.93 inches of rain or 29.3 inches of snow.  So the expression one hears on the Sunshine Coast to the effect  ���you do not have to shovel it ��� meaning the rain, should make us  ��� happy that we live in the rain forest area or on the fringe of it. Rain  is much less bother.  Immortality for Imlach  Sport has produced great literature. Starting with Pindar, who  ranks next to Homer among the Greek bards and who wrote exclusively about the glories of the winners in the Olympic games, sporting  comment has lavished on humanity a fine free-wheeling quality. Ring  Lardner comes to mind; even after he gave up his sports' ibeat, among  the best things he wrote was a series about a baseball player. Nowadays in some areas, breakfast is only a side-dish to enjoying the Canadian prize-winning Dink Carroll.    , .  Puach Imlach has, however, made a hard run for the 1963 stakes  with one deservedly-immortal remark. It seems Punch's team had  happened to drop a game. When interviewed on the cause of this setback, Punch said of the opposing team: "You have to give them  the credit; they had the breaks."  Love of the native  A professor has said that the  only Canadians who love Canada, their country, are Canadians who were born elsewhere.  Sixty or more years ago Canada's population consisted mainly of French who had been here  several generations and British  Canadians who either had personal' knowledge of Britain or  who had literary and family connections with "the old land."  Yet memory says that there  were a great many Canadians of  English ancestry who were Canada first in their thinking even  if they knew intimately the literary works ranging from Shakespeare to H. G. Wells.  Of course, there were Englishmen who looked down on native  Canadians as colonials who had  automatically to approve not  merely what the British constitu  tionally thought, but also the  overbearing whims of any Englishman who happened to be  here. Many such, far too many  such, were more difficult to assimilate into Canadian life than  is a tropical bird in the frozen  north.��...  In the old days when an Englishman in Canada wished to exasperate .the natives he would  assert, and believe, that he owned us. That is as if he had the  king's commission to govern. No  dictator could be quite so obnoxious as a person from the old  land who felt superior to everyone in sight who might be a native Canadian.  The people from Scotland have  perhaps always been easier to  get along with. They knew that  they were superior to other peoples on the earth and that there  was no need to assert it.  HOW  SOCIETY LIMITS  OUR  FREEDOM  (By BRIAN KNOWLES)  If bur Viking ancestors were  able to. revisit the scene of their  adventures, their mouths would  drop agape at our material, gadgets. But they would wonder even  more, I think, at us. They would  wonder why we, with every, possible means1 of well-being and  security, v are so obviously arid  desperately distrustfol of life and  of ourselves. Our more courageous ancestors had a matter-of-  fact acceptance of success arid  failure. Life was a testing ground  How they stood the test was what  mattered to them. They spent  no time in worry about what society thought  of their actions.  We have been brought up in  the tradition, if not the reality,  of happiness and security. Unfortunately we regard both as a  birthright. We go along like  sheep with the trend of the day.  If society thinks the job we are  doing is degrading or not of a  high caliber, even though we may  be happy doing it, we are considered of a low class and are  anxious to climb (?) to a job  more acceptable to society. We  may take our ulcers with us and  contribute very little to our way  of life, but because the new job  has prestige, we seek it a^.d expect people to look ur> *? us for  having it, we are born to be ruled by society.  Life can be a great adventure,  or it can be merely a process of  vegetation and decay. Each of  us has been given the ability to  think-and act for himself. The  individual, in the final analysis,  must stand alone and settle the  battle about life's meaning with  himself ��� not depend upon so-  .ciety to interpret it for him. We  should accept life for what it  actually is ��� a challenge to our  quality, without which we should  never.know of what stuff we are  made.  Japanese now  print stamps  The Japanese finance ministry's printing bureau has become  so successful in printing stamps  for other countries that it has  had to turn down new orders.  Although stamps have the ma.  jor purpose, of showing .that pos-  tage has been paid, they serve  a second purpose, particularly,  with smaller nations, as an advertising and promotion medium.  Since these countries often do  not have plants capable of printing stamps of the desired quality, the orders are going to Japan in ever increasing numbers.  The printing bureau made its  first foreign sale in 1947 when it  printed several thousand stamps  for the Republic of Korea: In  1945, the first big order came,  20 million stamps for the Republic of China to commemorate  the birthday of Generalissimo  Chiang Ka&Shek. In following  years orders came from Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines,  Cambodia, Malaya, Columbia,  Costa Rica and the United Nations. Total sales last year a-  mounted to 260 million stamps  and more than $200,000.  Although a new highly automated printing plant was built  in the spring of this year, the  bureau has had to turn down  stamp printing orders from Ethiopia, Indonesia, E. Salvador  and Nicaragua.  Six for B.C.  British Columbian students  won six out of the 16 awards in  the International Fire Prevention Poster contest it was announced in San Francisco where  the awards . were made.  In the senior category Jacqueline Rice of Langdale Elementary school received an honorary mention. The judges in their  remarks stated that the British  Columbian entries were the best  examples of art work in the  show.  THE DAY I LIVED  ' .      (By MARK SEYMOUR)  One of the most marvelous  things which this century has  brought us is flight.'. It is my belief that one. has not really lived until he has"climbed into the  cockpit of ah" aeroplane and experienced the thrill of throwing  of the ' shackles of his . captivity  and soaring off into "'the vastness  of the sky. :^.;:'' ..'.  I distinctly, remember a day  two years past when Dad took  me flying. It was a day of uri-  believeable perfection. We taxied to the end of the runway,  turned, and proceeded < to take  off. Though it may have seemed  normal to anyone on the ground,  ���tSiaJL UakfeJoff meant. somtething  very special to me. It was the  first time I had ever flown. Tim.  idly at first, I took hold; of the  dual-coritrol' column. It felt like  an extension of my arm, ,and the  rudder pedals, extensions of my  feet. Through these I could 'feel'  the plane and all its parts. When  we had gained enough speed, a  light feeling came over the stick.  We were airborne.  With a sweep comparable only  to the stroke of a master painter,  the trees and shrubs flashed by.  As we gained altitude, details  vanished and a view more beautiful than I had ever beheld flattened out before my eyes. To the  right was an endless expanse of  sea and to the left was the land,  a carpet of green, interrupted by  man's habitations and highways.  Ahead was the sky. Nothing except the grandeur of that endless  void occupied my mind and the  rhvthmic beat of the engine in  my ears.  When Dad finally took the controls from me, I realized that we  were about t0 land. The ground  rushed up at an alarming rate.  With what appeared to me as too  slow a movement Dad brought  the nose of the plane up. Sec  onds later, the wheels made-con.  tact.with the runway arid locked  there. I sank back into my seat, '  very much disappointed. I: had  returned to a humdrum world in  which one, must live by a routine.  Without the knowledge that I  can climb into the vast sky and  look down on the world below  me, life would be a most'fruitless venture.  COMMONEST   FUR-BEARERS  The white-footed mouse and its  cousin. the ;deer: mouse ;are ;,the  . pqmTnoTwst fur-bearing animals  in Canada's forests. Because of  the'.r nocturnal habits, we rarely encounter them but from dawn  to dusk the woods are fairlv a-  live with them scurrying about  in search of seeds and insects.  The whitefoot does not hibernate,  but remains active all through  the winter, living on' seeds stored during the warmer months.  Their tracks, like tiny rabbit  spoor, will often be seen on  snowy stretches when dav breaks  THE PERPETUAL OCEAN ..,.���  (By GLORIA BISHOP)  The Ocean has a flexible personality with human qualities. Its  long white fingers , grasp the  shoreline and then retract, moving all the time, ^ grasping all  within their reach!. This cold,  crushing, fateful hand changes  everything, then the Ocean folds  its arm's, satisfied with its work.  Cool-arid calm the water waste  decides the fate of all within its'  power. Violently thrashing, huge  and terrifying when angry, the  Ocean creates. unrest among its  habitants. .  Constant changes mark the wa.  ter's visage. Now it is grey and  humorless; now. bright arid  splashy. Whichever mood it is in  the Ocean applies its feelings li-  'berally, leaving no emotion untouched; bringing grief, happiness and thought. It is also false,  with a pleasant surface above  but eddying currents of wrath  below.  On days when anger turns to  calm, the waters reflect on past,  present and future, changing  scenes with expert hand. A huge  mirror, the Ocean, when misted  over, hides sad tears or happy  smiles; when polished, it reflects  ithe sullen, fierce, creeping or  flowing forms of its life.  The waters embrace each new  day with a rushing wave of enthusiasm and anticipation. In the  evening the. Ocean rocks its children of the deep to sleep.  With every hungry bite the  Ocean steps farther inland. At  all times the watery tide nourishes itself with a new supply of  life to enter in and join its flora and fauna. .  The waters dance wiith the  grace and beauty of a ballerina  or the swaying movement of a  native dancer.  The Ocean washes its face with  a wave of pleasant; warm, sunlight or a refreshing bath of rain,  water. It drinks in the cool rain  from .the wide,; "wide ^'heavens -.������  Clouds dim the eye of the  Ocean, and its spirits sink and,  soar with the tide.

At times, the only certain thing,  in this world, is the Ocean with  its flexible personality.  Mainly  about  People  The Davis Ottawa Diary  By JACK DAVIS.  M.P.  Coast-Capilanp Constituency    "  It l^oks as if all Canadians  over the age of 18 will b*e able  to vote in the next federal election. This proposal was unanimously endorsed by a special,  committee of.the House of Commons recently. All political  parties participated in this; decision and hence there can be  little doubt that everyone in the  18 to 21 age. group will be enfranchised early in 1964.  The idea isn't new. Canadians  can now vote at 18, provincially  but not federally, in Quebec and  Saskatchewan. They can vote at  19 in Alberta and British Columbia. Arrangements, are also  being made to reduce the voting age from 21 to 18 in Ontario.  Some of the reasons for this  change are well known. All A  across the country our young'  people can go to work at 18,  marry at 18, drive a car at. 18,  and go to jail at 18. They can  also join the Armed Services  and fight for their country at  18. Indeed, as servicemen, they  already   have . the  privilege of  "Do you know what I really think? I think you're  gradually revlacino me with /HJtn**t/n>nni"  voting in  a  federal election at  that age.      "'  What is more interesting is  the effect that this widening of  the franchise-will have ori election results. Young people  under 21 do not have the dark  memoriess. of their elders. They  have no recollection of the great  depression. Nor do they remember anything of World War. n.  Today's 18 year old has actually  spent his lifetime in an atmosphere of expansion. To this extent he can be expected to be  more optimistic and less security minded than his elders.  There is also evidence that today's 18 year bids are already  taking a real interest in national  and world affairs. They tend to  be outward looking, recent surveys indicating. that they are  more interested in travel and  international relations. This, undoubtedly, is a reflection, of the  fact that they are, on the average, better v educated than their  parents were.        ;       Y^    I  Numbers, are also significant.  By reducing the voting age to  18 more than,750,000 voters will  flock to the polls. This compares  With a total of 900,000 Canadians  oyer age. 70. The consequences  insofar as. the political platforms  of our federal parties are concerned, is expected to be far  reaching indeed.  Confidence, energy and an accent on growth will undoubtedly  be stressed to a greater extent.  National unity, as opposed to  purely provincal and loeal considerations, will also tend to occupy the centre of the stage.  Education will loom larger and  Old Age Pensions will tend to  slip somewhat. These and other  changes in emphasis can be expected as a result of the inclusion of this large group of  young people in the electorate  of Canada.  One young Yuletide visitor to  the Sunshine Coast took home to  West Vancouver a memory of it  that he won't forget and proof,  as well.  - Ten year old Ian Thomson  came to Hopkins Landing with  his father Jim, uncle Willie and  cousin Roy, to visit his grandparents, Mr; arid Mrs. Eric Thomson, and to get a Christmas tree  off the family lot. The four then  went to Port Mellon to have  lunch with Ed and Iriga Fenwick,  his uncle and aunt, and after  lunch, Jim, Willie, and Ian went  fishing^ Roy staying behind to  make friends {w��th Inga's new-  Shetland collie pup, Bessie.  Ian tied into a 23-pound spring  which took him and his uncle  Willie of the red. rowboat, half  an hour to land. It was a Christmas experience any seasoned fish  erman would envy, and an inspiring start for a beginner, but  there, is nothing ,.1'ike going out  in the right company.

ROYALTY NEEDS A HAIRCUT  Judging by recent news photographs, Canadian mothers Who  believe in the economy and neatness of short haircuts will be  wondering why English schoolboys, including Prince Charles,  must have their hair as long as  that of an English sheepdog.  Turnover in  a good cause  The investor singled out one of  the stocks in his portfolio for  special commendation. It had  more than kept pace with advances in industrial development in  the country. It was worth .twice  what he paid for it. It was paying a good dividend.

"After I cut Tom's hair, I'll show  you how to use them, and you  can-give the Skipper a real good  haircut."  Was it only my invagination,  rv was there extra emphasis on  the last adjective? Margaret is  the sort of person who can. insult you, without you even being  aware of the fact.  "But I. cut'the Skipper's hair  only yesterday," I protested. "I  wanted him to look nice when  you and Tom arrived from  town."  "I think she made a rather  good job of it," said the skipper. "Only:two small nicks. You  . can. hardly see them," he added,  as he noticed trie glaring at him.  ; "Your ears are certainly big  enough to cover the nicks." I  told him, a trifle peeved.  "I defy anyone to do a good  job of hair cutting with a pair  of old-fashioned clippers," said  Margaret, in that smug tone of  voice that /always succeeds in  irritating me, fond as I am of  her. "It's like the -difference be-;  tween using an electric power  mower and a pair of old-fashioned, garden shears, for cutting  your lawn." She accompanied  this remark with a brief glance  at. the Skipper's head.  Power mower!. Garden shears!  Whatr had these got to do with  the Skipper's haircut, I wonder-  ... ed. J knew there was an insult  hidden , somewhere in Margaret's  words, if I only had the patience  and energy to, dig it out. .���.....,  "Hurry   up  and   get   on ..with  . that  haircut,"   called  Tom  impatiently .from the chair on the  verandah.   "The -Skipper . and  I  want to. go fishing;.^  "It really does(!look easy,"  said the Skipped, -as he watched  the -[clippers gliding smoothly  over Tom's, head/." She is really  making^ a firs/k<cjass job of .it.  Maybe you: should her to  teach you," he suggested.  ,. .At the :$kjpper's words, I  could'|eel. the; naughty little, imp.  who-lives somewhere in the. back  of my mind at work..        ,   ,,  "I bet you could do that with  your, eyes shut." As soon as the  words left my mouth, I knew that  I should have kept it closed. -But  .. the same little /imp. who ^ insists  on putting those naughty ideas  . into; my- mirid, /also insists on  bringing 'them put into the open.  "For Pete's sake!. I wish you  wouldn't put hair-brained ideas  like" that info her head;" shouted  Tom.  Whether it was the little jerk  Tom gave, the fleeting glance  "that Margaret gave me, or my  own little imp, merely fulfilling  my suppressed desire to see  something exciting happen, I  shall rieyer kriowj but the hair  clippers suddenly'behaved as if  they were possessed of an evil  spirit. Up the: back of Tom's  head they went, over the crown,  theriV���op i to the top ofj." his, fore-,  head, leaving in their wake, a  track as bare of hair as a billiard ball.  "What happened?" yelled Tom  . "Someone tell me what happened!   Get me a. mirror!   Get me  two mirrors!"  With what; to me, seemed untimely haste, the Skipper rushed  into a bedroom, and returned  holding two hand mirrors which  he, still with unseemly haste,  . thrust into Tom's waiting hands.  With the aid of the two mirrors, Tom surveyed the back of  his head. "You've scalped me,  woman," he roared.  "Not quite, old chap," said  the Skipper. "It merely looks  as. if someone had started the  job of scalping and got tired of  it before the job was half finished. Now I think of it, there is  really nothing wrong with that  haircut. It looks rather artistic.  Reminds me of a well cut lawn  with a cement pathway running  through it."  "I didn't shut my eyes. I  swear I didn't shut my eyes,"  Margart was repeating over and  over again. "I have cut his hair  with those same clippers, more  than a dozen times and nothing  like this has ever happened before."  "A  man  running for his life  HOME  TRAFFIC LANES  To create or improve traffic  lanes in your home, use a sofa,  desk, or electric organ as a suitably placed divider^ Instead of  placing these pieces of furniture flat against the wall, try  them at right angles to the wall,  or pull forward so that there is  ample walk space behind them. .  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  ARE REAL SALESMEN  would never -notice it,"- I told  her, quoting a favorite saying of  my old Scottish grandmother.  "How many men running for  their lives am T likely to meet?"  asked Tom sarcastically "I  don't know how I am going to  face the fellows in the office,  with a head like this."  "It doesn't show from the  front. It is only when you turn  your back that it can be seen,"  remarked the Skipper. ,��  "Isn't that just dandy," said  Tom. "AH I have to remember  is never to turn my back to anyone."  "Keep your hat on, Tom," I  told him. "There's no sense in  getting nasty with the Skipper."  "By jove! That's a very good  suggestion," exclaimed the Skipper. "I never thought you were  so smart/'  . "What did I do?" I asked, mystified. Sometimes the Skippers  remarks puzzle me.  "Keep your hat on!" chuckled  the Skipper. "Then she asks me  what she said. With her tongue  in her cheek, of course."  "Oh, I do have a few bright  ideas now and then," I told him,  taking full advantage of the compliment I had not earned.  ''I met a few Indian chaps the  other day, and they had a haircut just like yours," said the  Skipper to Tom. "They seemed  to think it was the very latest  style. I believe it was called The  Indian Haircut."  "Indian horsefeathers!" snorted Tom. Which crude remark  shows that Tom is a fellow with  no sense of humor.

The bride's aunt, Irene Dalzie  caught the bridal bouquet.  The happy couple left by car  for California for their wedding  trip. Upon their return tKey will  reside   in  Vancouver.

Grade "seven boys repeated the  finely co-ordinated gymnastic  display of tumbling and pyramid  buiiding which they had performed before the PTA the week before. With the recent additions  of gym equipment this past year,  we expect to see this activity develop even further.   ,  Grade four from their studies  of Canada wrote their own play  Christmas in Early Canada, with  the addition.of the Huron Carol',  the Indians' song of peace. Here  every pupil was reminded graphically of some of the. roots of our-  Canadian traditions. And many  in the audience were quite envi.  ous of the costumes which would  be fine for western games during  the-holidays.  With voices changing many  grade seven pupils are reluctant  to. take part in singing but find  an interest.in music through the  relatively inexpensive flutophorie.  Grade sevens showed a remarkable progress in reading music  and playing parts since the beginning of the term. The carols  they played sounded particularly effective in two part harmony.'  For a complete change of' pace  the same group gave a swinging  rendition of Jingle ���.Bell--P.o.qk.  Grade two delighted everyone  with their choral speaking number during which Christmas decorations which were made by the  pupils, from rca*,v countries were  placed on th"> *r=?��.--'-'Now--it is.

The Nativity  Tabloid   presented   by    Division  Nine pupils of the special class  included   the   Three   Wise   Men,  the Shepherds  and Jesus in the  manger all most effectively costumed. A grade seven choir which  was part, of the tabloid gave well  ��� known   carols''a ��� freshness" that  impressed every child in the audience with .the, true  nature   of  Christmas.

NEWMAN)  Friends gathered ait the ho:ne,  of Mr. and Mrs. J. Galliford o.i  Saturday to view some of the  hundreds of slides taken and  shown by Mr. Doug. Warne of  Vancouver.  '   '  The slides were of Bethlehem  and Jerusalem and surrounding  country, and were accompanied  by Mr. Warne's fluent commentary. There was the Garden of  Gethsemarie with its gnarled old  trees. There were exterior and  interior pictures of the Church  of the Nativity said to be built  on the site Of the stable where  Christ was born.  A flat area, a floor-about the  size of a football field, softly  weathered to the shade of old  ivory, 'grass growing between its  ; squares, was the remains of Solomon's Ternple and just beyond  it rose the Temple of Rocks, its  golden dome gleaihing;Vin almost  perpetual 'sunshine and visible for  miles around. The'eighth of an  inch of solid gold which covers'  the huge dome is said to be the ���  gift of King Said to preserve it  from the ravages of time and  weather. ���  An interesting group of pictures were taken at Petra, a city  which lay in ruins and undiscovered until fairly recent times.  Built in 600 BC by the Mabataens  in a valley in Southern Jordan it  was accessible by only one small  cut in the steep mountains that  surrounded it, andthus was eas.  ily guarded. ������������;���  All the dwellings and public  places were built into the. mountains; or perhaps it might be  more correct to sav, scooped out  of. the ...mountains', The. tools used  were, presumably, hamm^s and  chisels, and ..with the^e the ornate fronts of nerfectlv proportioned columns, in distinctive designs were forrned to make entrances to large cool, chambers  which py+��Tv,o'i as far back into  th^ rock.as 200 feet.  The Mabataens thoueht. of everythingto _. safes" ��vrfl them from  their .enemie*/ /Their dwellings  were recessed, several feet so .that  if attack came, from above, mis-  .��"."�� thrown down would be ineffective.; Furthermore- such missiles would'have to.be carried un  to the top as it ti��d been cleared  of /all '.-mbya'ible objects.1 .*/  So; that thf^*- r? "n would c^" -  / good.^lpoks ;fbr'which it. was not  ed, each month the handsomest  young man and most beautiful  girl were sacrificed upon an altar high up on one of the cliffs.  It" was considered an honor to  be chosen for the sacrifice, and  for a few days prior to the gala  occasion the "pair/were much feted and indulged. \  Petra was a refuge on the main  caravan route from , Jerusalem  and Damascus to Southern Arabia and remained safe and snug  within its protective mountains  until 50 BC when a means of en- .  try was found;by.enemies.  Kuwait, a wealthy oil city,, is  on the Persian Gulf, and has ho ���  water. It is .known for its' sea-  water  distilling plant,  the  largest in the world. The slides show  ed numbers of 60 to -80 foot  freighters which" were- constructed .entirely of .wood in which no  nails were used. Gang .planks to  shore were single narrow planks  which sprang upward .with each  step and must have presented a  hazard to the unloading of freight  which was done without benefit  of. winches.       \   >  Because of the severity of-the  punishment, for any. crime, there  is little/ juvenile" delinquency in  Arabia.

Editor: Our children look to
us, their parents for love and
protection. Let's start giving
them the protection they need
in every way we can/
The penalty for child rape today is so lenient and yet it
should be so intense.
Children are powerless to do
anthing against a rapits. It is up
to us, their parents, to do something about it and we can.
We must all write to Attorney
General Robert Bonner, Legislative Building, Victoria, B.C.
We must let him know how we
feel and that the penalty for
child rape should be the strongest perialty and not one of the
least.   ■ .   :.        ■
If we can get enough letters
in and fast enough. They can appeal James Meeker's ten year '
sentence for his brutal rape of
a 12 year old child and give him .
■a much stiffer sentence,of which
it should have been in//the first
place. —Lorraine. Welch, Port

mix solid colors. Ribbon-striped
towels are new and different
looking, while floral printed towels create, a feminine, charming
decor.
For a butcher style apron,
first cut away both corners of
one end of the towel. Start the
diagonal, cuts down about one-
:third the length of towel. This
end will go under the arms. Fold
the, remaining fringed hem over
at the top and seam, Trim with
rows of red cotton rickrack across the top and above the
fringed hem at the other end of
the towel. Use about two yards
of red corded piping to bind the
diagonal corners . and to make
the apron ties and head loop.

THE   WEEK'S   LETTER       "I
have been going with a lx>y for
two years. In September, 1963,
this boy two-timed me twice with
sorry and that he; loved. me and
the same girl: He-told me he was
cared nothing at all about her. I
forgave him; and: took him back,
but I still have doubts. I don't feel
that I can fully trust him. Is it
right for me to feel;the way I do?
Should I tell this boy how I feel?
What should I do? Breaking up is
the last thing I. want. I only .feel
. this way when he is not.with me."
OUR REPLY: Apparently, you
fbrgaye-i-but you refuse to} forget
Since you have ;siich doubts, you
have not forgiven completely. You
just went'though the motions.
Two months later is not the
time to tell this fooy you feel you
can't trust,him. YOU should have
given him this message back in
September—and then put it out of
your mind until he gave you some
reason fOr doubting His sincerity.
If the boy is sincere, you do him
an injustice and at the same time
make yourself needlessly miserable. K you have reason to doubt
his sincerity, tell him how you
feel; and why you feel this way.
Just be sure you have'something
to go on. A mere "feeling" that
he is "two-timing" you; or that
because he did so once, he will
do so again, isn't enough
You can't go through life worried   about  what   "someone"   is
doing every moment they are not
with you. There are other important things in'.life than demand , your; time and consideration—and hone of us can put
forth the best effort at one thing
while; our mind and;attention is
devoted to something, else.

Many motorists are., according  to the results of a recent survey  released by the B.C. Automobile  Association.  In an impromptu check of air  pressure in 907 tires in several  parking lots, it was found that  8.4 percent of the tires had less  than 22 pounds per square inch  air pressure, and 10 percent had  more than 30 pounds. The range  was all. the way.from five to 50  pounds.  The BCAA emphasized that to  be safe, motorists should adhere  stfrictlfcr  to   the   manufacturer's  specifications   on   air   pressure.  "Tires with too little pressure  are   liable   to   failure,   have   a  greatly increased wear rate on  edges,   and   bulge   at   the   side-  walls," the auto-club said. "Over-  inflation puts great stress on the  casing, which may cause cracking and rapid wear on the centre tread."  The BCAA urged motorists to  give more attention to tire examination ill the interests of  safety  and better car care.  Committee now at work  II.

British Columbia municipal  councils enter 1964 with an vim-  portant job on their agenda, the  planning of local^pbservance of  the Canadian centenary.  They have been advised by the  Canadian Confederation Centennial committee in B.C. that it's  time to choose local chairmen  ;for the 1966-67 celebrations.  The provincial committee,  headed by Deputy provincial sec.  retary L. J. Wallace stated in a  preliminary letter: "In the early  months of 1964, each municipal  government will be asked to appoint a local centennial committee to plan and carry out local  celebrations and. to administer  the local project of lasting interest, to commemorate the 1967  Centenary of Canadian Confederation."  Mr. Wallace said however,  names should not be submitted  to Victoria until appropriate  forms are mailed to each local  government, some time within  the - next few weeks.  He reported that the senior  provincial committee has begun  laying foundations for an organization which will /extend  throughout the province. Subcommittee chairmen, together  with their personnel will be named ..before, mid-year. !  - Muriicipalities, and unorganized areas should start now to  find their committee members  and be ready to submit their  choices when required, Mr. Wallace added.  Local committees will be responsible for planning local celebrations and planning individual memorial projects, perhaps  in co-operation with neighboring  local governments. Grants-in-aid.  for lasting projects and celebrations and administration will be  forthcoming from both federal  and provincial governments as  the centennial year approaches.  Detailed information will be  given- local committees as they  are formed "and further instruct  tions will go but to all councils.  In the meantime Mr. Wallace  states. "It is important that a  strong and capable person be  named as chairman. He may or  may not be- a member of the .local council, but he should have  the full support and approval of  council:  "It is suggested that at least  one member of. council be-a  member of the committee to  serve in a liaison capacity;        >  "It is also- emphasized .that,  the chairmen and other members  should serve on . the centennial  committee, for the duration of  the; planning period, to 'ensure  continuity,"  Mr.   Wallace  said.

WINTER    KILLS    OF  FISH
A fairly common 'phenomenon'
. reported by. anglers, is the dying
"of ■vfisTi'rhViheV.'fall' and. ^in the
'Vspring >m6hths.;\ ' 'Inboth^cases
mortality seems "to >be due to
wind action so that deeper layers low in oxygen are mixed with
upper layers which support fish
life" vj," The result of the spring
overturn or fall over turn is that
the, entire lake is mixed uniform,
ly with low oxygen concentrations and fish die. Lady King
lake in the Interior was investigated soon after a 'die-off this
fall and it was..shown that death
was due to lack of oxygen. In
this case, a partial remedy may
be found by diverting a small
creek into the lake to stimulate
. the flow of freshwater.

Hunters take
70,000 deer
An evaluation of the 1963 hunting season by Fish and Game
branch , personnel shows it was
one of the most successful in the
history of the .province, the Hon.
W. K. Kiernan announced.
The' minister of recreation and
conservation said figures obtained from the Cache Creek checking station could be taken as
typical of the game harvest
throughout the province. These
show that 5;418 moose were
checked by branch officers, an
increase of 585 oyer last year.
The harvest of; trophy animals
such as goat; caribou, grizzly
and sheep, was also up. Upland
bird harvests decreased ■. but no
cause for- alarm..exists -as the
most • affected species; are cyclic. Present low numbers are part
of the regular cyclical patterns.
A total of 70,000 deer and 20,-
000 moose is estimated to have
been taken by hunters , during
the open season. More. definite
figures will be available when
the Hunter Sample Questionaire
forms are returned to the branch
The ^Kootenay district; main
elk hunting area of the province,
yielded well over 3,000 elk during the 1963 season from a population of at least 25,000.animals.
Departmental game biologists
estimate r there are : more than
half a million deer and more than
300,000 moose : in the province.
Many more than the number now
annually taken by hunters cbujd
quite safely: be. harvested "with
no detrimental .effects to future
game populations.

Reviewing the nation's economy during 1963, the B of M  notes that growth has been  "solid, if unspectacular" and  says, "It has been a year highlighted by the largest wheat  crop on "record, with sales to  match, a significant increase in  exports and : more tempered  growth in other sectors: Furthermore, there is every indication  Candy Box  BU1K and BOX  i ii ii minis  * * ������'..

Private capital outlays, while  less/than; expected, ,are higher  than iri> 1962, with outlays for  new machinery and equipment  being particularly strong: In- the  first ''ten;months,- housing, starts  showed an increase of seven  percent over last year and 90,-  .000 new housing units are expected to be under- construction  by December 31.  While the  devaluation  of the  dollar has helped Canadian  ex--  ports   -by ; making prices more'  :'-competitive for  some  products,  the B of M states, "Some of the  increases ,��� have  clearly  resulted  from    more-'-, aggressive    selling  'policies- vby  Canadian   manufacturers 'in' markets ' outside Canada."        .:������'-  The bank says that perhaps  the most important factor in export growth has been the buoyant economic conditions in the  United Kingdom and the United  States.  "On the whole, 1963 has been  a period of steady growth and  *   .   .   there are  few signs  that.  the - expansion     has    run     its  course," the B of M says.  Although there are some un-i.  certainties ��� preventing development of a clear view of: longer,  range prospects,, the B of M review concludes,. "At present  business' faces the future with  optimism tempered with some  degree of ��� caution and the judgment seems to be that the current expansion will continue its  moderate rate of growth well  into the new year."  your family feels....  ...at lower cost!

For most of the residents of  theV Halfinoon Bay area, it was  ' a. quiet; stay-at-home Christmas,  with'family reunions brightening  many of the homes.

Simple   cutout ��� shapes,     roped    together.  What  could be  easier?   This  is!  a perfect' one night project.  First decide how many shelves  you want. Carefully lay out the  pattern on a piece of stiff cardboard,   cut   out   with   scissors,  then   trace   onto   fir   plywood..  Three-quarter      inch    .plywood  makes a sturdier looking ladder  and gives a more authentic effect  but  a  power  jig  or band ���  saw is almost a must to cut it.  out.  Three-eighth inch thick fir  plywood works well and can be .  cut with a coping saw.  If your cottage decor is light  simply seal the wood with good  sealer  and  varnish. -If  a  dark.  color is desired, stain and varnish. A dull or matt finish var-.  nish is  recommended.  A white rope gives greatest  contrast ��� arid "looks dressier.-  Ordinary manila rope looks  more rugged. Splice .the' ends in  true ���. ship-shape fashion.
