B.C. Ferries  were forced to cancel three runs  on New Year's Day owing to the  severe   blow   that "affected   the  area between Horseshoe Bay and  Bowen Island.  Hydro and phone employees  and at times top brass have set  to and worked long hours to keep  lines of communication open. As  an example hydro employees  greeted the New Year hard at  work in various sections of the  coastal area, including the Clow-  hom line. The two system transmission and distribution each required attention at varied times.  Some areas had blackouts lasting hours but eventually power  was turned on. One angle which  was unexpected arose from the  fact that some of the hydro staff  decided to take their holidays  over the festive season which left  staffs shorthanded most of the  time. Telephone linemen had a  repeat performance, similar to  that of hydro men and were out  long hours repairing breaks in  lines.

Beyond minor ��� accidents' such as  cars ending up in a ditch' due to  road conditions, police had lit- ��  tie to report. *  Port Mellon's  snowfall so far ,  this   winter   has   totalled   106.5  inches of snow with about half of ���  that falling during the recent series   of   snowstorms.   During  the.,  recent    stormy   period   various '  roofs of buildings at Port Mellon ,  had to be cleared off and in one  or two  cases  of  storage  sheds  there were' minor collapses.  C. B. Davies; resident manag-'"-  er reported that the construction*;  work   was  not  delayed  by  they  weather and that it was expected that the'new installations will -  be .operative before the end of,  January which1 is ahead of earlier predictions.  Mr. Davies said he appreciated the way in which the roads department kept ".highways open  and that the department had done  a wonderful job. To help out employees over the holiday period  CFP organized bus runs from"  Sechelt to Port'Mellon using two *  buses at times to enable staffs  to get to the plant.  Port Mellon's snowfall was 8.8  for November,  80.7 for, December and 17 inches up to 8 a.m.  Jan.  5.  The  daily  fall  at'Port,  Mellon    during    recent    storms '  were: Dec. 28, 6 inches; 29th, six  inches;   30th,  nine  inches;   31st,  10 inches;  Jan.1 1, three inches;  Jan. 3, 11 inches; .Jan. 4, three  inches and Jan. 5, another three -  inches making a total of 51 inches for that, period. *    .,   .

The Monday night meeting is called for under the municipal act, which makes it mandatory: tHat councils hold the first  meeting :of the year on the first  Monday in January.  Lateryin the meeting Councillor I_ang;,was appointed as chair-  many of ; the roads, parks and  beaches and to sit .with Councillor William Swain on the Airport  Management committee' composed of; fme-nibers of Gibsons" and  Sechelt 'councils -and 'private  members. *     > .

Roberts real1 estate firm in Vancou-~  ver noted , that -residents of Sechelt had defeated the plebiscite  to' purchase park land at" Porpoise-Bay and stated that it', had  given* Sechelt first chance at  buying the land at a reduced  price.

Sechelt Volunteer Fire department wrote council on financial  matters respecting - the ��� fire' de��.  partment and asked.that it desir-  ed to place 'the problem before -  council at the next regular meeting. When the fire department  asked that a councillor be appointed an honorary member of  the department, Councillor William Swain was selected for the  post.    t. .  Cars collide  An RCMP car driven by Const.  Peter Grabowski was ��� involved  in' a head-on collision .on the S  turn on'Port Mellon Highway on  Dec. 30 at about 2:45 p.m. Gra-  bowsky was approaching a snow-  plow which was working ' the  other side of the highway when  a car appeared from behind the  plow and was unable to get back,  resulting in the head-on collision.  Driver of the other car was  George Levinsky of Aldergrove  with the B.C. Bridge company  at Port Mellon. The road was at  the time in a slippery state.  p,%**^***g^  ., Council decided - to sign f the  lease 'for the 'airplane float at  Porpoise Bay on the understanding that the float will be renewed  as it is now in a waterlogged condition. The lease for three years  at $1 a year covers a 10 x 50  foot float which will be used by  air traffic only. : -,,.  A bill covering an amount t of  about $400 from Roy Bolderson,  village maintenance man drew  considerable comment resulting  in council desiring to have Mr.  Bolderson appear before a/special meeting, on Wednesday at  which it will be explained to him  that he is not ~ entitled to incur  any expense which has not been  authorized by council. The. bill  concerned snow removal during  recent storms., There was { also  the matter of a sign notifying the  public about dumping at the garbage dump.

Mr. Bolderson is  working on a limited budget of  $100 a month and this was regarded as his limit without auth--  ority.  Mr. Raynor, village clerk' explained to council the tangle, that  has arisen over exempted municipal license plates for certain,  types of cars. Through an Inadvertent error, information ' had  been given the public that these.  exemption plates were free. At-  the same time councils have been  authorized to charge $2 per plate.  Mr. Raynor thought the public  should be informed of the error  and that a charge of $2 would be  made.  A small shed with a stovepipe  chimney was drawn to the attention of council by the fire 'chief  and council decided to look into  it to see if any regulations were,  affected. It was regarded, as a  fire hazard.  Due to the fact Tom Lamb, as- .-  sistant to the village clerk in the  office, will not be available during February as the result of ill- -  ness, the chairman, Mrs. "Johnston _tnd the clerk will select tem  porary help for that period.

In that year there  were    high    temperatures    and  heavy rains instead.  ,    Inspector  Wray" of  the   SPCA  thinking of animal and bird life  offers this advice:  "This winter will long be remembered by us humans as the  winter of the 'heap big snow'.  How many of our little birds and  wildlife friends that survive to  remember it depends upon what  we can do for them when scratching is tough. So folks please, put  out food for the birds in' safe  places or any other poor creature'  that may come around with an  empty tummy. Or if you find anything in distress then call the ���  S.P.C.A.

Carnage on highways!  f  Industry has proven that great factories can complete millions  of hours without a single loss-time accident. Must society, with the  individual responsible for his own safety, prove less reasonable? Perhaps we don't really care, some of us, whether we live or die. Perhaps we still think that ours is a charmed life. The accident will happen to someone else.  The above quotation comes from a press release by the Canadian  Highway Safety council and W. Arch Bryce, council executive director is being quoted. He adds that normal progression established  over the last decade indicates a traffic death, toll in 1965 of 4,800 accompanied by 140,000 persons injured and an economic loss to the  nation of half a million dollars.  What does the insurance man think when such staggering figures  are placed before him? Mr. Bryce in his remarks adds that six million drivers out of seven million drove with credit to themselves and  with consideration for others. This means that one of every seven  ?eeking automobile insurance became an insurance man's problem.  Mr. Bryce adds that more than 300,000 teenage drivers will seek licenses. Some of them wUl also become casualty st^  It is true that automobiles are built todaywith a great many  more refinements than we had in the past ��� but have the drivers of  these cars developed a more refined attitude towards their handling  of today's car?  Insurance men report that 1963 was the third bad year in a row  for auto insurance arid 1964 has been much worse. Accidents and  plaims increased 30 percent. Over the past five years across Canada,  premium income for auto insurance increased by 25 percent while  the amount paid out in claims increased 63 percent.  This situation is not exclusive to Canada. One of the largest insurers in the United States reported during 1964 that.its loss for 1963  .amounted to more than $12,000,000. This in spite of continuous campaigns to stop accidents on highways.  Just what is the answer? What can be done to guarantee a reduction in the accident toll? Newspaper pictures of horrible wrecks,  .broken bodies lying about apparently are as useful as a meathook is  in locating a small splinter in one's finger. Reams upon reams of  ,copy have been used in all press media warning pedestrians and auto  drivers to take care. Police slow traffic with road blocks, insurance  rates are tightened, cars get seat belts, everything it ���seems is being  done to help the driver on the highway to keep out of trouble. Yet  the toll increases!  There are many who do not go along with Hon. Mr. Gaglardi in  blaming liquor for the carnage, including the writer of this who has  .driven cars for years and has noted that at high speeds the.pbssibili-  .ties of accidents due to a split second distraction are far .too numerous to be overlooked. Only drivers of cars have the means of curfbing  highway carnage. When accidents occur.under perfect conditions as  .regards weather, visibility and the condition of the vehicle being  .driven, the human element appears to be the culprit. Humans being  what they are high insurance rates do not mean too mucji. Perhaps  *hey should be stiff enough to make the average driver, much more  areful. It might work!  Let's blame the Russians  William Lyon Phelps, an American educator and literary critic  once said that a cold is both positive and negative; sometimes the  Eyes have it and sometimes the Nose.  This is a sneaky way to work into something about the weather,  Christmas and the New Year.  Now about the weather, the general opinion is that there is someone with a subversive type of mind looking over the weather maps  ,and picking out its more gloomy aspects. Perhaps a change in weather bureau personnel might help. We can always blame it on the  .Russians ��� or is it now the Chinese. They exploded the most recent  of the nuclear bombs that have invaded airspace with its special kind  of fallout.  As regards Christmas, it is a fine institution which may some  day return to its original form involving worship of something worth  .a great deal more to this world than the worship:of gifts anticipated  and received. As a reminder if you have nothing to do with-your old  -Christmas cards send them along to the Coast News. There are institutions which would like them so pack them up and when the  weather is better, get them to the Coast News office.  Now about New Year���' we shall have to wait and see how it.be-  Jiaves over a twelve month period before we can comment. In the  meantime avoid having a positive and negative.

Its denizens  are rabbits, mountain beavers,  ground squirrels, meadow mice,  weasels, and ��� of course ���  sense that they sample seeds or  guinea pigs. All the animals, in  fact, are "guinea pigs, in the  tiny trees that have been treated  to make them distasteful to  wildlife.  Also under experimentation in  the same three-year program is  a repellent injected into the soil  with a jumbo-size hypodermic  needle.. The repellent enters the  trees through their roots and  spreads through sap systems. The  three-year tests will determine,  among other things, how long the  repellent will stay in the trees  "and how effective it is in discouraging nibblers.  is still possible, somewhere in  North America, to find some  vestige of all the earliest forms  of log transport. The log drive  is still a factor in the Northwest  and in the upper Rocky Mountains. Rafts may still be seen  on some rivers and, of course  are still common on the Pacific  Coast. Sleds drawn by horses  are used in Northern winter logging, and mules and oxen are  still useofor short hauls in many  sections of the land; notably in  the south.  One Southern sawmill located  near the winter quarters of a  circus has even experimented  with elephants for yarding its  logs. The steam skidder, while  still used* in getting big timber  out of inaccessible locations, is  not so common as it once was,  and the mileage of logging railroads is shrinking rapidly as logging trucks roll on the constantly growing network of access  roads.  Although giant logging trucks  and crawler tractors have largely taken over the job of moving  logs from woods to sawmill,  it  Yellowknife, in the Northwest  Territories, has an average snowfall of 34.5 inches, compared to  an average of 165.5 inches at  Sept Isles, Quebec.  When one attempts to tabulate  or assess the impact of 267,000-  member Royal Canadian __egion  organization on Canada,- he is  struck by the diversity of programs in some of its 2,000  branches.  The Legion spends $225,000 a  year on track and field 'alone.  This includes activity at provincial level. For the past three  years the organization has received a grant of about $50,000  from the Federal department of  National Health and Welfare.  Focal point of this track and  field program is' the Legion's 'national clinic, now regarded as  oneiof the-<world's best. With the  course sceduled this August, the  Legion will have trained almost  600 track and field coaches nationally. Hundreds    more    have  been   trained  at  provincial and  local clinics.  An estimated 40,000 young  athletes are involved in Legion  track and,field alone.,Thousands  more take part in other branch  sponsored sports such as hockey,  baseball and lacrosse.  While vitally concerned with  the physical welfare of' our  youth, the Legion is also interested in its intellectual development. Total value of Legion  bursaries and scholarships exceeds $260,000 a year. In addition, many branches sponsor public speaking and essay contests.

I     , ':   0   " ....  The Davis Ottawa Diary  Many of the letters ; which I  have received in recent months  deal with Quebec. Some make  a plea for greater tolerance to:  wards our French speaking : tely  low Canadians. /Biitythe great  majority are apprehensive. They  express the fear that Quebec is  always getting its own way and  that the French speaking element will ultimately dominate  the rest of Canada.  These letters ��� the letters that  profess alarm ��� are based bn  a misapprehension. Often they  are written without -a knowledge  of the facts. AndMft^ ^yy9#-  sume that the average -Quebeckr  erv has aggressive intentions.  Nothing could ,be further from  the truth.  ..*������'*   "*."������..  When I reply to these letters,.  I try to put these fears to rest.  I point out, for example, that  the population of Quebec is not  growing as rapidly as the rest  of Canada. Families are smaller  as Quebeckers move into the  cities. French Canadians are also marrying later .in life. As -aN  result 3.6 children are being  born each year for every one  thousand women of child-bearing age. The average for Ontario is 3.7;  for all Canada 3.8.  Further proof of this lag in  Quebec's population explosion is  found in the projected redistribution of parliamentary seats.  When the next change is made  (probably in 1966), Quebec will  lose one M.P. Ontario, by contrast, will gain four. Alberta  and B.C. will get two more, y  Then there is the question of  education. The Roman Catholic  church is losing its hold in Quebec. A department of education  has been set up for the first  time in that province's history.  Classical colleges are on the  decline. High schools and everyday vocational schools are taking their place. Young people  are being trained for jobs in industry and commerce. No longer  is the talented young French  Canadian to be equipped only  for the priesthood or a career  in law or medicine.  *     #'���#..  Traditionally Quebec has been  very conservative. It has been  preoccupied with: the past ��� Its  own past. Four hundred years  of history have been hammered  into the receptive minds of our  French Canadian youths. For the  last 200 years the French have  b e e n defending themselves  against the English. Even now  they see themselves surrounded  by a sea of English speaking  people. They are still afraid they  wiU lose their language, their  culture, their very way of life.  But this attitude is changing.  Witness the advice of the Parent  Commission on- education. The  royal commissioners criticize the  French Catholic system as being  top preoccupied with "the purity  ^pf. oiir|Frehch Canadian Origins,  -the religious, moral, heroic and  the idealistic character of our  ancestors,. .'.'. . the visible protection of Providence on the survival of our nationalism."  Patriotic preaching must be  eliminated. Let the facts of history . speak for themselves says  the Parent Report. English must  be taught beginning in Grade 5.  (It now starts at Grade 3 in  English language schools.) Competent teachers must be hired in  both languages. Text books must,  where;; possible, be the same.  And students should be taken to-  meet each other. Only in this  way can English speaking and  French speaking people get to  know each other in Quebec.  1*        '!���        V  Premier John Lesage's remarks at the time of the tabling  of the Parent report are interesting. : He welcomed its recommendations. He also said that  "all good thinking people will be  satisfied that what you have in  mind here can be attained elsewhere in Canada."  To this many other Canadians  may say "Amen." But education  is still a matter for the provinces.  Each will decide its own fate.  And I have a feeling; that Quebec will continue to be much  more tolerate towards the'teaching i of English than we will be  towards the teaching of French,  in this great and complex country of ours.

Whirligig be etles are fun to  watch as they glide over the surface of our ponds and streams.  If a pebble is tossed among  them, they race about at high  speed in a mad frenzy of circles,  loops and zigzags. When pursued, they dive to the bottom  and hide. Whirligigs are oval,  flattened and black with a metallic sheen and range from a  quarter to half an inch in length.  They use their front legs for  holding mosquitoes, midges and  other prey while the second and  third pairs of legs are short,  broad paddles.  : Their eyes are one of their  most interesting features. They  are divided'into two parts, one  half keeping a lookout for enemies overhead and the other for  attacks from below.

With 13,000  boys under training, the Legion  has the largest number of group  committees of any organization  in Canada, with the exception of  schools and churches.  Yet, in spite of this variety,  the Legion has not lost track of  its original objectives. Each year  through the distribution of poppies, it raises over $% million ,  for the welfare of veterans and  dependents. It maintains a link  of service officers from branch  level through to Dominion Command. This link assures any  veteran or dependent, personal  assistance with any problems relating to war pensions or allowances. ,  Although half a century has  elapsed since the outbreak- of  W.W. 1, a steadily increasing  membership is adding new vigor  to the Legion each year.

Automobile association says.the biggest  reason is an inadequate battery.  Cars with 12-volt batteries with  a 50 ampere rating will not crank  the engine, fast enough to start  in sub-zero conditions, says the  BCAA. Replacement heavy duty  ,12-volt batteries should be rated  from' 51 to 68 ampere-hours. Usually, a good guide to go by is  that a four-year guarantee battery is a heavy_duty battery.  Corroded battery cable terminals can cause a poor connection  between the battery and the starter and usually will fail completely when a heavy current load is  used to start the engine on a cold  morning. Both battery terminals  should be cleaned. y  Ignition points, too, play a  large role in winter starting, the  auto club ���says. Corroded j pitted  or improperly ^spaced ignition  points cause a weak spark; During cold weather, a good high-  voltage spark is necessary to ignite the cold gasoline in the cylinders. y  Spark plugs are important for  quick winter starts. Plugs used  10,000 miles or more will have  the electrodes burned short. Under a heavy load, they will cause  the engine to miss. This condition  also causes misfiring when attempting to start a car during  cold weather. Plugs should be  cleaned and adjusted or replaced.

Prepared by the Research Staff of  . HCYC L 0 P ED IA   C AH A DIA HA  How did Charlotte Whitton  become famous and successful?  Miss Whitton, Mayor of Ottawa, became famous as a politician; but her stormy political  career was preceded by many  long and successful years as a  social worker. She took her M.A.  at Queen's University, Kingston,  in 1917, and was appointed assistant secretary of the Social Service Council of Canada in 1918.  Four years later, the Encyclopedia Canadiana recalls, she obtained the post of private secretary to the Minister of Trade and  Commerce. As the first director,  of the Canadian Welfare Council  from 1926 to 1941, Miss Whitton  founded and edited the magazine,  "Canadian Welfare" and represented Canada in some League of  Nations specialized meetings.  After retiring from the Welfare  Council, she became a general  consultant on social welfare. She  wrote many pamphlets, still used  as texts in schools of social work  and was also the author of two  books.' Entering politics in 1950,  she was elected the first woman  controller of the city of Ottawa.  She became the first woman  mayor in 1951 and was re-elected  in 1952 and 1954 and in later  years. In 1958 she contested the  federal seat of Ottawa West, as  a Progressive Conservative, but  was defeated.  In December I960 she was reelected Mayor of Ottawa. While  Miss Whitton has become famous  for her fiery wit in politics, it  was the years of single-minded  concentration, which .led to her  being recognized as a welfare  authority, that made possible her  later success in politics.  .^ -t\<.<>.

There are two fair-sized islands of this name in Canada.  One is the largest and most  northerly of the Queen Charlotte  Islands off the coast of British  Columbia.

What newspaper was headed by  Charles Riordan?  In 1884 Charles Riordan succeeded his brother John :as president of the Mail Printing Company, which published the Toronto Mail. Charles; born in Ireland  in 1847, emigrated to America  with his family in 1850, and in  1863 came to Canada to join his  brother, who had started a paper  mill at St. Catherines. A; year later Charles Was:> managing the  mill and from 1882 until-1921 he  was president 'of-'th'e Riordan Paper Co. A few' years after becoming president of the Mail Printing Company,' Charles bought out  .the Toronto Empire-and -merged  it with his own papelr to form  the Mail and Empire.

Editor: In your issue of March  12, 1964, you give a report of a  meeting held at Selma Park to  organize a Peninsula Garbage  Disposal idea. Two or three  meetings were held after that  in the same place, at one meeting all the organizations were  asked to contribute to the "Preliminary Expenses." .  The last meeting I attended the  Treasurer reported that 15 organizations had each paid their  $5, the amount suggested, and  another $5 was paid that night  but not before the meeting had  passed a motion that at all three  disposal dumps a proper ditch  be dug to bury animals for the  S.P.C.A. and others who disposed of dogs, cats, etc. It was the  S.P.C.A. that made the suggestion. So in all $80 at least was  paid in for the preliminary expenses,    y  Two persons were selected  from Gibsons. Sechelt and Pender Harbour District -to act with  the sanitary inspector and the  representative of the Forestry De  partment in the selection of the  three    sites    for    the   Garbage  Dumps.  I have not seen any publicity  since then and so far.as I know  the 'idea died a natural death.  There is a ditch at the present  Gibsons Dump so maybe it was  buried there. Maybe Wyngaert,  the chairman of the committee,  can give us some up to date.information about this very much  needed activity if it has not been  buried.���B.   L.   Cope..

The staff  available to handle the work in  the kitchen was small and several guests pitched in to help.  The orchestra's pianist did not  attempt the drive to the hall but  there was no lack of music. It  just happened that many of the  guests came equipped with musical instruments and the ball  quickly changed to an oversized  house party, all traces of formality dispelled. It happened that  some of the. musicians were extremely good, among them being  a well known violinist.

Application by -Rayonier Canada <(_5)C.) for pulpwood harvesting rights in sustained yield units-before "-Lands and Forests Minister Williston in Victoria Monday, .revealed considerable opposition to the venture. Various of  the large companies stressed that  ��� the- needs of one company were  the needs of them all.  Ross Douglas, Rayonier vice-  president of timber when asked  what would happen to Raybnier's  expansion plans if the minister  refused the application said his  company would have to await  the minister's decision and act on  that.  Rayonier is' seeking a wide  area locally in wheh to operate  to get slash timber to use for its  $24 million expanded Woodfibre  mill, which extends from Squamish and beyond, around the  coast to Jervis Inlet and back  into the hinterland for considerable mileage. Eight briefs supported the Rayonier request and  34 were opposed. Other land  areas are also involved. ' *���  T. G. Wright of Cariadion Forest Products said its Port Mellon  plant, south of Woodfibre, was  also expanding but that only 28  percent of its timber would come  from; regulated tenurey while if  Rayonier was granted its PHA  it would get 70 percent guaranteed supply.        PP. y"-";  He said the forests should remain under the current sustained -yield unit  management  and  that the timber should stay xm. ay;  competitive basis. y  He added that CFP has oper-'  ated- its Port Mellon pulp, mill on vv!  sawmill waste .iri the- pasti buty  wall net be able to do so in "the ���  future in the' face of rising demand for purchased chips.  The company said it is already  planning the installation of a  woodroom at Port Mellon for the  processing, of pulp logs and salvage wood to be purchased from  the lower coasft Crown forests.  It added that in the next: few  years a substantial increase in  the production of salvage wood  is bound to occur because in the  ... Iast^few years raw material from  . other sources has been fully utilized.. The hearing continues.

Tel who  make long distance telephone  xcalls> to U.S. centers will enjoy  a net saving of approximately  ,$300,000 per year resulting from  .the adoption of the Canada-U.S.  Long Distance Bate Schedule No.  ,2, which became effective Jan. 1.  The implementation of this  schedule results from extensive  .discussions which have been held  (between B.C. Tel and the American Telephone and Telegraph  -Company and approval for its  adoption has' been granted by the  Poard of Transport Commissioners for Canada.  Approximately 80 percent of all  ,calls between British Columbia  and the United States are made  to or from centers in the western  states and it is in this area that  ,the greatest savings will be felt.  There will, however, be some increased charges on long distance  .calls mainly to U.S. centers in  the east and southeast.  The massive mailing of. six-  and-one half million income tax  forms direct to taxpayers is  scheduled to begin on Jan. 8. This  is a new method of distributing  tax forms according to an announcement from the Department  of National Revenue.  In addition, farmers and fishermen, for whom a special Farmer's and Fisherman's Guide is  printed, will be receiving these  about one week before they get  their tax forms.  Every taxpayer who filed last  year will receive a personalized  tax form with his own name, address and identification numiber,  together with an extra copy to  'keep for his own records. Included will be a tax guide, a brochure explaining the new procedure and a return envelope.  Taxpayers should begin receiving their forms in Prince  Edward Island, Nova Scotia and  New Brunswick beginning January 12; in Newfoundland beginning January 15; in British Columbia, Alberta, the Yukon, Saskatchewan and Manitoba beginning January 18; in Quebec beginning January 15, Montreal  area beginning January 18; and  in Ontario beginning January 19,  Toronto and Hamilton areas beginning January 25.  In the past, employee taxpayers got their forms from their  employers. Self-employed peo-.  pie, including farmers and fishermen, picked up their forms at  post offices.  New taxpayers, taxpayers who  spoil their personalized returns  or who do not receive them because they may have moved-dur-  ing the'yeaf,, may get extra forms,  at their local post office or district Taxation offices.    . _  ,  Sechelt  Beauty Salon  Phy 885-9525  HAIRSTYLING  designed just. for  you  Coldwaving ��� Coloring  Tuesday to Saturday  Supplies  SECHELT���Ph.   885-2283  PORT MELLON  TO PENDER HARBOUR  Phone 886-2231  from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Res. 886-9949  EVERYTHING FOR YOUR  BUILDING NEEDS  VOTE  __  YES  99 FOR REFERENDA 5 & 6  ON SATURDAY, JAN. 16  h  9449  SIZES   10-18  THE VIEW OF YOU is lovely,  just lovely, in this A-line skimmer that shapes up to a wide,  sassy bow.

Electoral map to change  Japanese hsv��  TV recorder  The dream of being able to  record television shows in the  home for re-playing at a more  convenient time seems to be at  hand.  The Sony Corporation has begun production of the home  video tape recorder unit at a  price, in Japan, of about $550.  The unit will go on sale shortly  after the first of the year and  the company hopes to manufacture 2,000 to 3,000 units per  month.  By attaching the unit to a television,' television shows can be  recorded while they are being  watched. If a timing mechanism  is attached, shows can be taped  while the family is out of the  house and played back later.  Play-back can be accomplished  instantly in the same manner  that outstanding plays are re-  shown during sports broadcasts.  The principal difference between  -the Sony unit and the type used  in television'stations is the price.  A commercial unit now in use  costs  upwards of $50,000.  The company is; also producing  a small television camera for  home use which will -.-���'���sell- for  about $250 in Japan. Using this  camera and a microphone, a  family can produce home movies  which can be shown over the  television set immediately without waiting for the normal  chemical processing.  By JACK DAVIS, M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency  Canada's electoral map will  never be the same, again. Not  only that but it will change every ten years. From now on, representation by population .will be  the rule; There-will be no really-  small constituencies arid there  will be no really big ones. Each  Member of Parliament will represent roughly the; same total  number of votes.  The next house of commons  will have 264 membersp-y one less  than how. Each, if the new formula were effective now, would  represent about 70,000 people.  Some provinces will immediately -send more M.P.'s to Ottawa;  others less.

The Yukon arid the.  Northwest Territories will remain at;one seat;apiece.  .  Such changes now become auto--  matic. As soon as the census results come in independent four  mari;Coinmissions will go to work  adjusting constituency boundaries. Each riding will be altered  so as to approximate the national  population quota at that time.  The quota will be reached by  dividing Canada's, population by  264 seats. Within each province  some, leeway is allowed! Individual constituencies may vary by  ;as much as 25 %. This means  that with a������-70,000; norm one B.C.  constituency could have up to;  88,538 people in it; another could  have as few as 53,123 people.y  .; 'Some of our larger constituencies will be affected.

Representation by population has never been popular  with Mr. Bennett's Social Credit  government; But now that Ottawa has its house in order the  spotlight is bound to shift to the  provincial scene. Pressures will  grow and sooner or later British  Columbians will have an equal  voice in the conduct of our local  as well as national affairs.  Loggers prepare for  Biggest convention  Coast News, Jan. 7,  1965.        7  Newspapers are the only medium offering the magnetic appeal of classified ads.  Convention Chairman Bruce  .Welch has predicted that the 1965  Truck Loggers' Association of  B.C. convention next month would  break all previous attendance  records. Theme of the 22nd annual convention, to be held at.  the Bayshore Inn Jan. 13-15, will  be Our Forests ��� Our Future.  Advance registrations are well  ahead of previous years and all  display space was completely  sold out months-ago. Mr. Welch  said the convention is geared to  .handle close to 2000 delegates,  wives and associate members. As  well, there are always ' several  hundred others who are on the  fringes of the convention.  All rooms are sold" out at the  Bayshore Inn and nearby hotels  are taking the overflow; every  .available inch on the main floor  of the Bayshore "has been sold for  display, booths and the area outside on the parking lot has been  increased for showing of large  jtnachinery.  As well, convention officials are  .aiming to set new attendance  records at the two top social  functions ��� the Loggers' Ball to  be held at the PNE Show Mart  and the Fashion Show at the  Queen Elizabeth Theatre.  '<Last year at the Ball we had  1800 people, but this year our  aim is 2000," said Mr. Welch.  "As well, so many wives have  indicated they are coming to the  .convention, we have had to move  our fashion show out of the Bay-  \ shore and into the Queen Elizabeth Theatre."  ;��:   .  Other social functions are;,thev  Cookhouse' Special Lunch and the'  opening night Social Get-Together.  Mr. Welch pointed out that the  Truck Loggers Convention has  .been steadily growing over the  past four years to a point where  it has become the largest annual  convention in British  Columbia.

ELECTRA CLEAN  UPHOLSTERY CLEANING  CARPETS, FURNITURE  RUGS  Phone  886-9890  Canadian Forest Products Ltd.  Canfor newsletter for December  -contained an article which outlined expansion highlights covering 1964 activity at Howe Sound  . (Port Mellon) pulp mill. Here is  what the article said:  Early in 1964 the decision was  made to expand the Port Mellon  pulp complex. This was the start'  of a very busy year at the HSP  mill. Engineering facilities and  the mill stores .operation had to  be expanded and provision had  to be made to house, feed and  park a construction work force  that would rise to a peak of about  400." The construction program is  ��� 'now almost completed and it is <  .'-. expected that the additional facilities will become operational  in January 1965, although phasing in of all the expansion com-  'ponents will not, be_ completed  until the Easter plant Shut down  period.  The major item in the expansion plan was the installation of  a chemical recovery boiler designed to burn 1,400,000 lbs. of  solids per day. Two new Dorr-  Oliver pulp washers with additional pulp screening and deck-  ering capacity were installed.  The re-causticizing plant was extended, the capacity of No. 4  pulp   machine   Ross   Air   Float  Specialist  in 4-H work  Hon. Frank Richter, minister  of agriculture, announces the appointment of two new staff members to vacant positions in the  4-H Club division.,  Mr. Wayne Wickens, BSA, has  been appointed as 4-H Club specialist with headquarters in Victoria. He will work closely with  the supervisor of 4-H Clubs in  the further development of 4-H  and other rural youth programs.  - A native of New ��� Westminster,  Mr. Wickens received his education in that city, Surrey, and  subsequently graduating from the  University' of British Columbia in  1964.  His experience includes a term  of employment with the Provincial Department of Agriculture  as a;student assistant, and more  recently with the Canada Department: of Agriculture in Winnipeg.  ��� 'Miss Rosemary Meadows, BHE  has been appointed as Extension  Home Economist to succeed Miss  Carol Groves in the Victoria office. ''���"';.  ���': Her professional experience includes being a . teacher at the  John Oliver High School in Vancouver, and during the past two  years as Therapeutic Dietician  at the Boston City .Hospital, in  Massachusetts: , y .  'Miss Meadows _ias -travelled  very extensively. She. is y the.  daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. R,  Meadows,  Ocean Park, B.C.    fy  Dryer was increased and additional storage tanks for liquor  and pulp from the batch digesters were installed. *     "  Changes were" also required at  the mill distribution entT~o_ the  chip conveying system from the  deep sea dock. Additional Cuno  filters were installed in the water system, to provide for a flow  of "40,000,000 gallons per day,  enough to supply the City of New  Westminster.  The construction project required much involved planning  through the year. Engineering  was of primary importance and  the HSP divisional' engineering  offices were expanded with M. R.  (Mike) Kitson in charge of the  field engineering office.  An important aspect of the expansion program was the co-ordination of all the separate items  that must be kept in stock. The  stores staff, located on the mezzanine floor of the new mill  stores building, play a very important part in controlling inventory and handling all* the  stocks used in construction as-  well as the day to day mill requirements.  Through the year thousands of  incoming and outgoing - order  forms have been processed with  expediency for everything from  hair springs to geiger counters.
