"  *Get out and vote on Saturday  for your choice of municipal councillors in Gibsons and Sechelt.  This plea is made by Sechelt's  Board of Trade and Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce,  fin Sechelt there are four candidates seeking two council seats,,  B^n Lang, Louis Hansen, Joe  Benner and Robert Kent.  In Gibsons four are seeking  two council seats. They are Sam  Fladager and Norman MacKay,  sitting members.and R. F. Kennett and Norman R. Harris. Mr.  Harris is 34, raised in Vancouver  and a newcomer to municipal affairs. In Kitimat he was a fire-  "man and ambulance ~ operator also until .recently,, a .member of  Gibsons /Volunteer Fire department. He believes more young  men should take an- interest in  municipal affairs.  ,'In Gibsons vote at the Municipal Hall and in.Sechelt at Jack  Mayne's office."  ' .-Reports circulating' in' Sechelt  that Louis" Hansen is" not a" British subject have, been denied by  .Ltr.   Hansen  who, said  that   he ,  served in the Canadian Overseas  forces   during ��� the   First   World  War and during the second war  while registration of individuals  .was the law he"was told then that  he -was, through his army discharge,  a Canadian  citizen.  AN EDITORIAL  Sechelt's plebiscite  Sechelt ratepayers have a decision to make  on  December 12!  This decision involves voting yes or no on the acquisition of land  in Porpoise Bay as a park with a swimming beach. The shore area  is known as a mudflat. There is sand reported under the mud.  No public meetings have been held to debate this matter. What  public debate has occurred was in council where the mechanics of  the plebiscite were the chief factor. Sechelt taxpayers are therefore  in the position of having to vote on something which has not been  explored publicly. Taxpayers' "money "is involved!  One of the arguments presented to council for hurrying this plebiscite is that other buyers want to get the property. Surely these  would-be buyers have knowledge of what is going on in Sechelt. So  far there is no visible sign of any offer and there is no indication the  real estate company is holding this land for exclusive purchase by  Sechelt. Is it necessary to rush jt through at this time?  Would it not be wiser to wait a little and get some disinterested  party capable of assessing the potential available to that property?  School requirements!  ��  - The School Board feels that the details of the forthcoming' Referenda set out below are for the-most part self-explanatory.  As a result of the recommendations of the Chant Report the gov- ���  ernment has recently approved and agreed to share the cost of libraries for all elementary schools of minimum three rooms. School  trustees and P.T.A.s have been pressing the government for several  years to recognize the importance of libraries. With the exception of  the library for Pender Harbour Secondary, all buildings are shareable  Pender Harbour does not yet have a large enough enrolment to be eligible for a government-shareable library, however the board was  agreed that the students at Pender - Harbour need library facilities.  An asterisk * denotes non-shareable expenditures.  Proposed Building Program  SITES  50 f lot  Gifts given  first baby  Gifts presented to the first  baby born in the new St. Mary's  Hospital include a $50 savings  bond from all the hospital auxiliaries connected with the hospital, a layette from Sunnycrest  Motors and a nightgown gift for  the mother from Mrs. Bishop of  H. Bishop's Ladies Wear in Sechelt. -  The parents of this first baby,  a boy, are Mr. and Mrs. Tom  Bailey of Gibsons. The birth occurred at 6:58 a.m. Dee. 3, the  third day of patient occupation  of the hospital.  THIS IS THE, PICTURE Hon. Eric Martin, minister of health and  hospital services asked for. The lighting was not capable of bringing  out features of.all the people, even with the aid of a flash. It shows  most of the people who were instrumental-in events leading towards  construction of the hospital and some of those who took part in the  actual construction.   ��� �� ��� ��.

Proceeds will  go towards the Kinsmen park  improvement fund for installation  of equipment suitable for entertaining young children. One  friend of the Kinsmen donated  $300 recently to help swell the  park fund.  (By  DAVID  BURRITT)  , The first annual Cross Country  Meet held by Elphinstone High  School, Sat., Dec. 5, included  schools from Vancouver, North  .Vancouver, Squamish, Powell River and Gibsons.  The meet started off on time  at 1:30 p.m. with the" girls starting first.- When they finished,  Edna Naylor came first for Elphinstone, Michel Duffy second  for Elphinstone and Lynn Ma-  hood third for Squamish. The  winning time was 11:56.4.  Ten minutes later the junior  boys started. This time there was  a larger field. When the boys  came in, it was Mac Nelson from  Windsor School with a long lead  on the second winner who was  Pete Boshard, also from Windsor. Then came Ray Vernon from  John Oliver and David Burritt  from Elphinstone. The winning  time was 12:13.9 for a 2% mile  course.  Thet Senior boys, numbering  about 15, had the hardest and  longest route. Again they all  were off to a good start. First to  come in was Pete Harris from  Powell River. Then came Al  Crout and Craig Nixon from  John Oliver and Warren Knight  from Squamish. There was no  time for the 3% mile race.  There was a trophy for the  school with the fewest points.  This year it was won by John  Oliver just beating Elphinstone  and Windsor who were tied for  second place by one point.  The success of this meet was  illustrated by the enthusiasm and  expressions of thanks by visiting athletes and coaches. The  club feels that it has made a contribution to School spirit and  urges all students to carry on the  good work in this regard.  Elphinstone Track Club thanks  the visiting teams and their  coaches and all who helped make  this meet possible. We. would especially like to thank Rhea Mc-  Cullagh, Nanette Berdahl and  Mr. Hunt for their help in the  meet.  Give $500  The Halfmoon Bay Auxiliary to  St. Mary's Hospital has sent a  cheque for $500 to the Sechelt  Hospital for the purchase of a  Dermatome to be used in skin  grafting.  This is the second substantial  donation made to the hospital by  this hard working group during  the current year, and brings  their total contribution to $1,074. Coast News, Dec.  10,  1964.

Saturday's municipal vote  Saturday's municipal elections in Sechelt and Gibsons should  provide more than usual interest with.four candidates in each municipality seeking to fill two seats, -.p }...''���-'��� p-  In Sechelt the four who are running are not sitting members. In  Gibsons two are sitting members. One of the Sechelt candidates has  sat as councillor for one term. He is Louis Hansen, an outspoken  man on any council. The other, three, Ben Lang, R. B. Kent and Joe  Benner are all well-known to Sechelt taxpayers! Sam Fladager and  Norm MacKay are Gibsons men seeking re-election. Newcomers in  the municipal race are Dick Kennett, well-known- in Gibsons and N.  R. Harris, a relative newcomer to municipal affairs. .  Both councils are needing the best possible men as councillors  owing to pains of growth affecting the thinking of both councils. For  the next few years problems are going to be more serious than most  faced in the,past. Expansion will be a factor in both Gibsons and Sechelt. When they do expand both have been told not to make a nibbling one but to take in a large enough territory to carry them for  a good many years;/;'.:.-,.,.. '.. .,:;.��� y.'yy.y. ;' PP  Both municipalities have sewer and water problems, either domestic or ground water, the latter presenting runoff problems. With  a large new hospital on its border Sechelt will have some unexpected problems which will have to be met. Gibsons has enough on its  hands taking care of its expanding growth which is becoming cumulative each year, bringing with it a. multiplicity of problems.  Taxpayers should carfefully look over the men who have decided  to run and select who they think are the right men for the job. Spending taxpayer money is easy if one wants to make it so. It is not so  easy to spend that money in an intelligent manner, for the good of the  ^entire community.  Elphinstone 9s beauty  Mt. Elphinstone in its mere c?.rt:vp'ir>s moods should become a  study for some keen photographer. It will take time and considerable  patience but in the long run it will be worthwhile.  Take last Saturday morning 7. y'cu hn:J >-en on the Secholt Queen  on its second tr'.p from' Langdale and had ventured on an open deck  about two miles cut and looked back at-Mt.-Elphinstone.the picture '  would have been one from which you would have hesitated to break  away.  'At water, level for some three or four hundred feet up was a fog'  bank stretching alo'ng the shore. Above it Mt. Elphinstone with a  clean, white snowcap shone in the clear morning sunlight. But what  added to the beauty of the picture was a veil of cloud which, captured on the north side of the peak, was blown southward in. a long  stream. It was a rare picture.  One does not usually have a camera available when eoming on  scenes worth taking. However some day someone will make a worthwhile picture story of Mt, Elphinstone and its iriQQds in varying  lights. "������������,, -  White Gift Sunday  At the turn of the centruy,  many people were concerned that  Christmas observances in Sunday Schools had degenerated into an elaborate concert with lavish refreshments, a bouncing  Santa Claus and nothing more.  They did not say this was evil,  ^~y just said it was not enough,  '.hey tried having parties where  gifts were brought to be shared  by others, but somehow it had  a hollow ring because some were  able to bring expensive gifts,  while others were only able to  bring a little, and so some  brought nothing or stayed 'away  altogether, because they were  unable to come with a worthy  gift.  One day in 1904, the wife of the  minister of the Methodist Episcopal church of Parnesville, Ohio  was thinking about the "White  Gift Legend" of the mighty Ku-  blah Khan, the warrior ruler of  the kingdom of Cathay. He, unlike many kings of his time, was  just, benevolent and wise. He  treated the rich and poor alike  and was especially tender to little children. His subjects decided to hold a great birthday cele  bration to honor their king. This  in itself was not new but the  way they did it was original and  made the king glad.  Just as he showed no favorites  in his kingly rule so they showed no difference in their gifts,  for the gifts of all looked the  same and were wrapped in white.  They brought the white gifts for  the king, while one may have  only been able to bring a handful of rice, and another a beautiful ivory or jewels, the king valued not one more highly than another, because they were given  of pure motive, a 'glad heart and  all bore the same degree of devotion and love. Not only so, but  in a white book persons who had  no material gift could offer their  time or talent to serve the king,  by entering their names,  In like manner, in this little  church in Ohio, the suggestion of  the minister's wife was put into  practice. It was not only substance, but substance, service  and self the people offered in a  twilight service on Sunday evening. From this small beginning  many beautiful White Gift Services have grown.

It was while hacking away at  this tangle, consoled by the  thought. that even, such rough  material can be converted to useful land-dressing by means of  the compost heap or used directly as a mulch that is equally  valuable though slower in action, that I chanced to note the  strange appearance of a stand  of young firs growing beyond the  fenced land though still on the-  property.  Closer study showed that it will  be difficult if not impossible this  year to find the ideal tree that  is evenly. branched and tapers  upward symmetrically to the tip  of the growing point whence the  Star of David shines on all below at the appointed time.

It is a great event ,in the  mounting anticipation and excitement of the last' few days to go  out for . the indispensable tree.  Hardly a year, passes without  some one saying or writing that  Christmas' is now ho niore than  a commercial racket. My sug- ,  gested cure for such sourness is  to join those eager young ones  in the woods, perfectionists for  the time being every one and  determined to take home a tree  that will be admired    by     the  household and the neighbors.  A little enthusiasm, brushing  off on to the one who needs it,  might cure his gripe.

'        ',  He introduced Bert Wilson,  conservation officer for the Powell River district, who, in a short  speech, set the mood for a light-  hearted' evening by telling the  joke about the parson borrowing  His-wife's teeth,. thereby preaching a sermon five times the usual length. After the blessing by  Rev. James Fergusson, 236 sets'  of teeth set to work on well filled -plates featuring elk, venison  and moose meat.  Mr-. Baxter spoke of a trip  made by Don Caldwell with a  group-of boys to Clowhoin Falls.

J. Wallace reports.  While work on the program is  still in the initial stages, studies  are beingmade of a number of  suggest projects.  In addition, other events that  will encompass communities  throughout the province are being surveyed. The committee's  objective at this time is to originate and develop as many events  as possible that are practical  and, economically: feasible and  "-. which will encourage .the participation of* many communities  throughout the province.  Mr. Wallace cited the vintage  car, race held during the 1958  iyB.G- Centennial celebrations as  ail example" of the general type  of event that the committee is  seeking.  "We are giving thought to  a  ^ suggestion --put forth of  a  long  .-������ di_la_u_e walkathon, bicycle race,  and pony express race. We have  also  had  a   suggestion   that   a  "wagon train similar to those used  in  the  pre-railroad days  should  >'tour the'province;"  The chariman pointed out that  Centennial preparations must be  completed in the next 18 months  sO that '���: the province can cele-.  brate the 100th anniversary of  the union of the Mainland and  Vancouver Island and the adoption ;of the name British Columbia., in a suitable  manner.

Morris  have returned home to Welcome  Beach after a trip to Ottawa to  visit their son F/1L Barrie Morris, who is attached to Transport  Command of the RCAF. They  travelled by C.N.R. and report  that the trains were uncomfortably crowded in both directions.  Ottawa they ��� found beautiful and  impressive. Twice they sat in  the visitors' gallery of the house  of commons listening to the debates. On the first occasion, the  members spent the whole afternoon discussing how time could  be saved by making speeches  shorter and cutting out all superfluous matter.  While Ottawa is served by fine  highways and expressways, Mr.  and Mrs. Morris thought that  driving within the city, with roads  darting off in all directions, was  a frightening experience. At the  airport, they enjoyed a visit to  a museum of" "models of old  planes. ...  They visited the Gatenau Hills  where the maple leaves were  just changing to their flaming  Fall colors. They travelled on  the Rideau"' Canal, a 300 mile  stretch . of waterway connecting  the Ottawa River and Lake Ontario. One ��� of their most interesting experiences was a visit  to Morrisburg in Upper Canada  where they found "old" churches,  old customs, and a way of life  reminiscent, of the 18th Century.

Coast-Capilano Constituency  Parliament is in the process of  establishing a National Labor  Code. It will set up minimum  standards in industries which  fall under federal jurisdiction.  These include shipping, the railways, air transportation, inter-  provincial trucking, communications and the banks. Federal  Crown companies like the Polymer Corporation and Eldorado  Smelting and Refining Ltd. also  come under this heading.  Nearly half a million workers*,  will be affected. Within eighteen  months, their minimum wage  will have to be at least $1.25 an  hour. They will work a standard  eight hour day and a 40-hour  week. Forty-eight hours is the  maximum with time and a half  for overtime. There is provision  for eight general holidays and for  two weeks vacation each  year.  Costs will, of course, tend to  go up. But management knows  that long hours rarely help the  performance of a worker. Sometimes they cause accidents. Regu  lar hours and a reasonable income also contribute to industrial  efficiency. This is the case in  other industries whose working  conditions are already regulated  in provinces like B.C.  Some companies will be more  affected than others/Take trucking for instance. Drivers on long  hauls are sometimes called upon  to work as much as 60 hours a  week. This is in peak periods.  Then they are laid off for days  on end.  The towboat industry is another case in point. It also works  irregular hours. Like the trucking industry, it could therefore  have difficulty in conforming  with the basic hourly and weekly patterns which are part of  Ottawa's new National Labor  Code.  Some flexibility- has therefore  been built into the Act. Industries which operate in surges will  be permitted to use averages  worked out over a period of  weeks or months. As long as  their average week is no more  than 40 hours and time and a  half is paid up to an average of.  48 hours a week, they will be  able to conform with the regulations  This is not a new idea. It is an  integral part of the resolutions  adopted at the first International Labor Convention in 1919.  A more difficult problem is that  of the minimum wage itself.

Working conditions in many  sectors of our Canadian economy  are bound to be. improved. This  is something in which we can all  rejoice. All parties of the House  of Commons are agreed. Witness  the fact that they adopted the  principles underlying the new  National Labor Code by a vote of  183-0.  This act will probably be passed in ail its stages before Christmas. Then Canada will be able to  boast of the fact that it is one  of the progressive nations of the  world insofar as labor standards  are concerned.

These facilities, with a  pumping speed of 250 gallons  per mnute, were built to accommodate the new Rockgas barge  whichc carries three 30,000 U.S.  gallon bullet tanks.  While Allied Shipbuilders Limited of Vancouver were constructing the barge and tanks, under  supervision of Rockgas Propane  Limited's technical personnel,  Shellburn engineers were visiting dock loading facilities in  neighboring U.S. centres to determine ' the best way to construct the facilities here.

They-probably would have tripped 4)n the roller skate  (which you also1 can't see) on the path.  FIGHT TUBERCULOSIS  Enter the warmth and hospitality of Outdoor Lighting.  A few lights, tastefully placed and chosen, and the  house takes on a special charm when evening comes.* Outdoor  Lighting says "This is our place, and we're home."  You can see where to walk (and where not to walk). Roller  skates are easy to distinguish. The lights placed about the  garden transform a dreary evening into a dramatic still  life. And prowlers are notoriously allergic to light.  For full Information about Outdoor Lighting contact your electrical contractor or B.C. HYDRO  Lighting Advisory Service.

The  wea.hcrman was kind to  us last weekend  and -we  had  a  complete  league   program  played off both  Saturday  and  Sun-'  day.  The visiting Powell River Legion Division 3 team put on quite  a display against the Gibsons  team and won very handily by a  score of 4 goals to 1.  This same team put on an exhibition game in the Empire Stadium, Vancouver, two years ago,  and if we thought they were good  then, well they were excellent  last Saturday. I could pinpoint  the halfback line as the foundation of this team, but the whole  team shows well. One of the best  teams I have seen.

Officer MacFarland  testified that he noticed a. black,  kitten around when he investigated the accident.  Alex Cromer of Pender Harbour was acquitted of hunting at  night when he established that he  and a friend at Hallowe'en were  parked on the Oyster Bay road  with a .303 cal. rifle in the car  as. protection for children calling  on houses for trick or treat.
