 GOLDEN CUP AWARD  COFFEE  at DANNY'S  COFFEE  HOUSE  &  MOTEL  Gibsons ��� Ph.  886-9815  Provincial Library,  Victoria. B. C.  SERVING  THE GROWING SUNSHINE  COAST  Published in Gibsons,  B.C. Volume 18, Number 40). December 17, 1964.     yyo ��������� ��� ���:  7c per copy  Sechelt breakwater before cabinet  No surprises in  municipal votes  There were no upsets in either  the Sechelt municipal vote or that  in Gibsons as a result of Saturday's voting. The Sechelt Porpoise Bay park plebiscite was defeated as expected by an almost  2-1 vote and Ben Lang and Louis  Hansen, were elected to next  year's council.  In Gibsons, Councillors Sam  Fladager and Norman MacKay  were both re-elected with Mr.  MacKay topping the poll.  The vote for councillors resulted  as  follows:  ' MacKay 176 (E)  Fladager 161 (E)  Harris 103  Kennett 87  In all 267 persons voted out of  a total of roughly 575 eligible  voters. The total voters' list ranges up to 750. There was a steady  flow of voters to the Municipal  hall where ballots were cast, during most of the morning with an  increase in the afternoon and towards 8 p.m. when the 'balloting  ceased.  This map depicts the pulpwood  area sought by the Rayonier com  pany to supply pulp wood for its  Woodfibre mill when production  expansion  there   is  completed.  Mm CI Jr SJ mm B �� a  seeking  pulp area  Twenty representatives of  Chambers of Commerce and log-  lers were given an outline of a  proposal by Rayonier Canada  (B.C.) Ltd. for the salvage of  standing and fallen timber left  on cut-over areas, to be used for  pulp chips at its Woodfibre plant.  A dinner meeting in Danny's  Dining Room last Wednesday, arranged by Rayonier gave R. E.  -Elliott and Ross Douglas, Rayonier , representatives an opportunity to outline their proposal  which would have to receive provincial lands and forest depart-.  ment consent. This entails a hearing in Victoria on Jan. 4 when  Rayonier will present its proposal.  What the speakers outlined was  a pulpwood area which covers a  forest .'land, centred . on Sechelt  along the coastline -to Woodfibre  and around to Jervis' Inlet and  intend jeyeral- miles irtclu^ng^ ln,Jieu_of-. sending^ldcai ^drc_tm.e^mliS-^ha_?  the Vananda Island area.

He  was more active than other candidates in distributing information about himself and putting  on a display for Friday night  shoppers. Mr. Harris also had  fairly strong backing from the  Port Mellon pulp mill union. Mr.  MacKay's strength came from  what is reported to be an organized drive to help him head the  poll.  HOW SECHELT VOTED:  Here is the vote for councillors:  Lang 130 (E)  Hansen -   60 (E)  Benner 59  Kent 47  The plebiscite vote on the- proposed Porpoise Bay area" park:  No 97  Yes 51 ���  Total number of people voting  was 161. There are 219 electors  living in Sechelt. In all there are  260 voters who are on the voting  list but not all are able to vote  on money bylaws.  /���Sechelt's breakwater becomes  more of a possibility as the weeks  go by according to a letter from  Jack Davis, M.P., parliamentary  secretary to Prime Minister  Pearson. '; ,  . A letter from'Mr/Davis.to the'  Coast News included also copies  of letters from other federal ministers concerned with the development of the breakwater. Mr.  Davis in his correspondence included a letter sent to Norman  Watson, Sechelt Chamber of Com-  r merce chairman of the breakwater committee.  The Davis letter to  Mr.  Watson reads:  "I   am   still  working  hard   ori  our breakwater project.  This is  ��� not to say that it is assured beyond all possible doubt. The federal government is developing a  policy with regard to marinas.  Once this has received final ap  proval from the cabinet, the way  should be clear for construction  at Sechelt. (I am told that the  Sechelt breakwater is one of the  first projects in Canada to be  approved if this new marina development policy is adopted.)   .  "My main difficulty has been  in the area of general policy.  Small pleasure craft requirements were ignored by Ottawa,  and cost sharing with the provinces is popular with the officials. Had their views prevailed  the federal government would  have put up 37V_ percent, the provincial government TiV-z percent  and the-"idcal. authorities 25 percent of the money involved.  "I am, personally, opposed to  these overlapping programs. So  much so I fought this issue  through its various stages to the  federal treasury board. As a. result, the minister of public works  Hotel and marina  under consideration  Patients remembered  The Dec. 10 meeting of Sechelt'  Hospital Auxiliary at St. Hilda's,  Hall with' 35 members present,  decided that in future meetings  will be held at St. Hilda's as the  membership   is. -increasing   and  . the larger hall is more suitable.���  The money raised through the  Memorial /und'went towards buying _f humidifier for the pediatric  This auxiliary has made plans  to place a small favor on each  patient's tray, on a colorful doily  and serviette, for Christmas Day"  dinner.   ::  The minutes of the last annual  meeting were read, followed by  A proposal to construct a $350,-  000 hotel and associated marina  at the base of Georgia Heights  *fn the bay area was placed-before Gibsons municipal council Tuesday night.  ^.The proposal was- made by Ernest Cartwright of Gibsons Loggers - and Sportsmens Supplies  Ltd., who two years ago made a  presentation seeking construction of a marina in about the  same  area.  ^Mr. Cartwright said he expected opposition from the people in  that area but council .explained  these reports: president's, treasurer's,publicatyyMerhbrial Fund, y that there was provision already  sewing committee, gift-box andv^  Suri_4uney conimitt e'e &Ml  first reading probably at next  council meeting, Dec. 29.  Mr. Cartwright's plan covers  the building- of a 30 room hotel  which would, he expects, have a  liquor license. It will be built on  eight' lots at the corner of the  base of. the Georgia Heights on  the shoreline below the road  leading into the Heights properties. He "also envisages the later  construction of a breakwater  ta king.;in j the beacon now marking, the shoal iri that area.  Martin Shuflita, owner of the  pool hall in the former Co-op  store requested council to /allow  him to let: 16 vyear old boys; and  has agreed that selected breakwater projects should go ahead  wilh 100 percent federal financ-  "I must warn you that this new  policy which now has the endors-  ation of the department of public works, has still to receive the  approval of treasury board. In  other words, it is still to be passed by a select committee of the  cabinet. If all goes well, this approval will be forthcoming before  Christmas. ^  "With this background the enclosed letters make more sense.  One, from the minister of public  works, the Hon. Jean Paul Des-  chatelets, cautions that the Sechelt project may not appear in  the 1965/,66 estimates. However,  he dees say if a suitable policy  were accepted, funds could be  provided by the earliest means  possible, either in the supple-  mentaries or in the final draft of  the ihain estimates.  The other letter is from the  minister of citizenship and immigration.   The   Hon.   Rene   Trem-  ., blay, as you know, is responsible  for Indian affairs. In his letter  dated Dec. 3, he states what his  "department is  now prepared to  do in support of the breakwater  . project; at Sechelt.  "In summary, then, I am still  hopeful. Whether or not the construction of the breakwater will  begin in 1965 is still in doubt. ��  will keep trying and, sooner or  later, we are bound to be successful."  The letter, dated Dec. 3, received by Mr. Davis from Hon. Rene  Tremblay, minister of citizenship; arid ^ immigration, reads as  follows: y- y  y"At a meeting on Sept. 9, council of ,^he; Sechelt Band studied  the brief and went on record as :  ���being completely in accord with:  : the findings as presented to the  Chamber of Commerce introduced the speakers.  The idea was to use logging  .waste salvaged by local outfits,  boomed, then sorted out and  irieasured. Where a better type  wood showed up it would be  classified as such and given the  going market price. Rayonier  was interested in the type of  wood not usable in sawmills or  other pulpmills.  It was estimated such an operation would yibe worth about  $1,000^000 a year for the area as  a result of income the salvagers  would get. 'Supplies salvaged  would enable the Woodfibre plant  to expand from an output of 250  tons to 550 tons.  Rayonier officials said they  could not walk into any area and  pick up the salvage. It would  have to be recognized as a pulp  harvesting area in which the  .company would be entitled to'  first refusal of salvaging.  Vic Walters, when questions  were in order, favored open bidding as he felt situations could  arise to the disadvantage of the  small logger such as the classification of mixed pulp and sawmill  logs.  R; L. Jackson thought controls  did not allow the working of free  enterprise and as long as anyone  had the right of first refusalv it  would not work to the advantage  of the logger. He suggested Rayonier go ahead with the scheme,  create a market.and logs would  come their way. Both sides  agreed that there would be problems regarding what was salvage  wood which the forestry department would have to decide.  Rayonier officials declared alders were not under consideration for the present and that the  price offered for. salvage wood  would be roughly on a market  basis, with the wood marked,  scaled and bundled.  It is understood, that briefs  have been sent to the B.C. Loggers assodationyby~Ted Osborne'  of Sechelt and R. L. Jackson of  Wilson Creek arid that v these  briefs will be presented by the  association at the Jan. 4 hearing  in Victoria.

Evening meetings, which are  the second meeting of the month,  have been chosen for the experiment and the next meeting will  be held on Monday, Dec. 28. The  meeting late in January will 'be  held at Pender Harbour according to present arrangements.  The board is apparently ex-,  pecting it will get closer to problems in these regions as a result  of meeting places being alternated. The first meeting of the  month will toe held in Gibsons as  usual.  As a result of there being no  nomination for school board to  represent Sechelt Village, a committee in Sechelt was asked to  select a representative, and Leo  Johnson, present member of the  board for Sechelt, will continue  for another two years.

B.C.   HYDRO   AUTHORITY  The Sechelt Association to Girl  Guides v and Brownies ��� annual  Christmas party was held at the  home of Mrs. Charlotte Jackson  of Wilson Creek with 14 members  and 10 guests present. Pretty  little corsages of hemlock greens  and-cones were made by Mrs.  Bess Aldred and presented to  members and guests.  After a smorgasbord supper  supplied toy the association members the monthly meeting was  held. This meeting is the only  one during the year where the  L.A. members are, hostesses to  the Guide and Brownie leaders.  Mrs. Barendregt reported on  the success of the book sale held  recently. Mrs. Mary Redman was  presented with a corsage and  both' Brownie and Guide silver  spoons in recognition of her services as Snowy Owl for the 1st  Brownie pack.  A bake sale is planned for Jan.  7 at the Hospital Cottage. The  first meeting of the new year will  be held on Jan. 6. at the home of  Mrs. Mary Redman. The Ladies  Auxiliary have a small Mexican  Hat change purse containing 30c.  The owner may claim it by calling Mrs. Frank Newton of West  Sechelt.

A grant of $25 was made to the  Salvation Army Welfare denart-  ment. A request from Mrs. Mary  Hunter that she be allowed to  sub-divide three lots on Glen  road was approved. Mr. and Mrs.  Elsom of Vancouver who plan to  build a home on Glassford road  sought information on whether  they could build at an angle instead of square on the lot. Council approved;   .  Council decided to. inform the  provincial roads department that  the provincial highway through  the village was showing signs of  crumbling and that it was hoped  that the next year's estimates  would contain consideration for  the maintenance of the highway  in good  condition.  Chairman A. E. Ritchey announced that council was to meet  with Wes Hodgson, Civil Defence  co-ordinator on Friday. At the  same time it was reported to  council that a cache of emergency drugs will be lodged at the  Health Centre under the direct  supervision of druggist Rae  Kruse.  A car expense amounting to  $20 was granted village clerk  Charles Gooding. This was done  after argument during which  Councillor Sam Fladager felt  that Mr. Gooding as clerk should  not make himself into a general  outside joe boy as he had plenty  of work to do in the municipal  office.  Burroughs Bros, excavators, of  Vancouver, who laid the new water line along Marine Drive a little more than a year ago will also renew the water line from  the old church corner up the  highway to Seaview road for  $1090 which council decided was  quite reasonable. Work will start  before the highways department  begins on its road development in  the same area.  tion to allocate funds towards the  proposal,   they  are   prepared jo  .assist to. the following extent:y  "1.

Power lines down  Power outages as the result of  Monday night's big blow occurred in Port Mellon area, Granthams, Gambier and Keats Islands, Redrooffs and at other  isolated points as the result of  falling trees. Telephone repair  men as well as Hydro were kept  busy for two days after the blow.  A serious outage resulted from  the toppling of poles bearing power from Clowhom power station.

A reasonable result  The reasonably-minded people of Sechelt took the opportunity  Saturday of expressing their opinion on the proposed Porpoise Bay  park and made it an almost two-to-one vote against, which should  clinch the argument that Sechelt's people will not be stampeded into  any hurried scheme. , '.\     *  "in expressing an opinion as to who defeated the park plebiscite,  most fingers would point to its proponents. Their undue haste in striving to get it before the public left them wide open to a reasonable  doubt that there was something about it that needed explaining.  Election of Ben Lang and Louis Hansen in Sechelt was no surprise although Joseph Benner came mighty close to tieing, with Mr.  Hansen obtaining 60 and. Mr. Benner 59. Mr. Kent did not show sufficient strength.  " In Gibsons no surprises occurred, except that Norman Harris for  his first time on the ballot acquired a considerable vote. Sam Fladager and Norman MacKay were re-elected with Mr. MacKay heading  the poll. Mr. Kennett failed to capture the public eye and finished at  the bottom of the poll.; -'���'������������      ���:'��� y  Reams and reams of paper  r  Starting in column three at the top of this page is a letter from  Wesley B. Hodgson of Gibsons, civil defence co-ordinator for the area  in which he outlines the uses of civil defence. Some four or five years  ago civil defence did have the appearance of being an active necessity. Today its urgency has faded.  ' Along.with the fading has grown up a somewhat facetious attitude towards civil defence which has come about because of the endless reams of printed paper received by people enmeshed in the gyrations of an officialdom which had nowhere to go and a lot of time  in which to go. ;  An organization which ��� glib'.y sets an evacuation pattern which  would place 25,000 people in this area if the need arose reveals a distinctive paper work complex wh^h cv'%r,~'%,T- r?aVI*v. With' time a  paramount factor in such an evacuation where is the means available for moving such a mass?  Civil defence is a worthy objective but it should be realistic. If it  were possible to move even 5,000 people to any area without a breakdown occurring at some point, it would.be an achievement worth recording but to visualize 25,000 in a mass, movement to this area  without anything happening to slow things up, is so highly imaginative it could be placed in the realm of impossibility.  Mr. Hodgson is of the opinion some form of civil defence would  be good for the area. This goes without argument and it should be a  good personnel nucleus which could operate efficiently until such  times as a properly organized body like the army with facilities could  take over.  Both Sechelt and Gibsons municipal councils have looked at civil  defence with minds harboring a strong doubt as to its value based on  performance to date. Survival is a permanent desire of most people  and as one councillor has said: "The public could look after itself  reasonably well."  Forestry salvage  The idea outlined before Gibsons and Sechelt businessmen on  Wednesday of last week by the Rayonier Canada (B.C.) Ltd., to salvage timber left in areas which have been cut over, is a sensible  one. The company sees good pulpwood in this left-over supply.  It is their objective to use local loggers to salvage this wood, if  the company is able to get the necessary rights from the forestry  department at Victoria. A hearing on the company's application for  a pulp area will be heard in Victoria on Jan. 4 as reported, in the  Coast News Nov. 19.  The company's proposal is a new idea in the clearing-up of logged  ireas. The company seeks the timber left standing along with fallen  timber worth salvaging for pulp chip purposes at its Woodfibre Rayonier mill.  No serious opposition was revealed at the Gibsons meeting. Questions asked were exploratory and one of thelm wondered why such  salvage should not be left open to all comers in a free enterprise  system. The question interested loggers who favored a competitive,  rather than a company price.  The Rayonier mill hopes to be able to handle expanded production some time next year and is now lining up wood supplies for a  pulp tonnage increase from 250 to 550. The angle that affects the  trading area involved in this proposed pulpwood harvest region is  that Rayonier predicts such work done by small logging outfits would  add one million dollars annually to the economy of the district. All  would welcome the one million dollars ��� if Victoria is able to give  Rayonier the go-ahead signal.  Without direction, advice or  even enquiry in the pros arid cons  and without any reason being  given, the council of the Village,  of Gibsons Landing advised the  Vancouver Zone Civil Defence  Co-ordinator that they i.would  not participate in 1965/66 : civil  defence. /  fl'he attached letter (to chairman of the council) is self explanatory and for the information of taxpayers and the public  > generally it will be greatly appreciated if you will- publish '���, the  letter in its entirety.

Hodgson,  Civil  Defence ��� Co-ordinator  Dear Mr. Ritchey:  I have just received a letter  from the Vancouver Zone Civil  Defence Co-ordinator advising  me he had received a letter from  the Village Clerk stating that the  Village Council at a meeting on  17 Nov. 1964 had decided to withdraw from Civil. Defence; and  would, therefore, not participate  in 1965/-66. ' ,  The* Zone Civil Defence Coordinator, as well as myself,, is  much concerned for this sudden  decision, particularly in the fact  after so many years of endeavour  and (that no reason was advanced  to' the cb-ordinator for such action."  | have stated' many times in  couricil, that while disagreeing  witty1 many aspects of Civil De-  -fence for a. .wartime organization, nevertheless, from a peace  time disaster viewpoint, its effectiveness is 100% and the cheapest form of insurance that this  municipality, can have in an emergency. In fact, many residents  wejl remember that Gibsons arid  area is in the earthquake zone  also remember well the damage  that was done by the earthquake  right here in Gibsons in 1949.  as civil Defence co-ordinator,  ���. in organizing the district, it, was  realized that to carry outv Civil  Defence program; in its entirely  would be impossible, therefore,  a ^asic orgaii-ziauon was set up  whereby an individual qualified  for the position was appointed  as director in charge of a sector  made up for health, pdiice, fire,  engineers, welfare, and communications with Doctor Inglis, Corp.  RCMP, fire y chief, Wally Peterson, Vince Prewar and J.. Dixon  respectively with 40 enlisted volunteers.  In the event of any peace time  disaster, usually called civil disaster, these directors together  with the enlisted volunteers can  immediately put into operation  the necessary plans according to  the disaster requirements,    y  The Civil Defence organization  for this area is made up of four  sectors ��� West Vancouver, North  Vancouver, Squamish and Gibsons with a radio network enabling communication with each sec-  ~tor.

Cotist-Capilano Constituency  One of the present government's most important achievements is in the Afield of federal-  provincial relations. It has set  up machinery for more frequent  consultation. More than that; it  has shown a willingness to get  together with the provinces- on  many matters of. common concern.  Ottawa alone must look' after  such vital matters as external  affairs, national defence, international trade, immigration and  finance. The provinces also have  certain fields of influence. Three  of the most., important are education, social security and municipal affairs.  There are some overlapping.  Ottawa   and   the   provinces   are  -* concerned with agriculture.  Both have a hand in transportation. And both tend to tax the  same people. So the grey, areas���  the areas of conflict if you like-  are also important in this federal  system of ours.

In  most suburban areas and small  localities the local press,; Coast  News included, from time to time  carries the advice tp patronize  our local stores.  Whilst recognizing the fact  that we are living under a free  enterprise system the populace  of any locality, large or small,  hate to think that they are unduly overcharged.  The following figures speak  for themselves. A neighbour purchased 150 pills in Vancouver for  $3.73, subsequently purchasing  50 of exactly the same pills  locally for $2.60. I purchased 60  "tablets in Vancouver for $4.56  and paid $6.70 for exactly the  same quantity locally. I wonder  how long must we suffer this  disparity in prices?���Thomas J.  Parry.  ferences, this overlapping, from  hurting us. One way is to talk  to each other, to compare notes,  and to act in unison. This behavior on the part of Ottawa  and the provinces is what is  known as co-operative federalism.  It requires an attitude of mind  and it demands a course of action ������.both of which are essential to the management of our  national affairs.  ;:Mr. Pearson dealt with this  Ijhen he^spoke recently ta a, conference V of university . heads in  Ottawa. Learning is a life-long  process, he said. So, while education is primarily a provincial  resnonsibility. the nation as a  -whole also has a stake in the  ���effectiveness of our educational  system.  The .reverse is also true when  it  comes   to   economic   affairs.  : Ottawa   is   in  charge   of money  and   banking.   Ottawa   therefore  decides  whether we  shall   have;  .: a tight or an easy money policy.  >The federal budget    is    framed  rwith this and other objectives in  mind.,  But   the   provinces   must  not be kept in the dark.  They,  too, have a. stake in Ottawa telling the rest of us  simply and  frankly what the outlook is likely to be.  ,yl have chosen two examples:  education and finance. One is in  the hands of. the provines. The  other is up to Ottawa. Yet, each  has far reaching effects. They  cannot be" completely compartmentalized. This is where "cooperative federalism" comes in!  Some people are apprehensive  about this new turn in events.  Some Quebeckers see it as.leading to greater centralization in  Ottawa. Others are fearful lest  the power of the provinces be  increased. But neither one can  deny that co-operation is the  answer. There will be fewer misunderstandings. And there will  be fewer disputes in the handling  of governmental affairs.  . Those of us who think that  government needs to be streamlined are encouraged. We feel  that this approach will help to  bind the country together. Cooperative federalism, in other  words, is no empty catch phrase.  It is a practical matter. It can  do much to make Canada a better country to live in.  Gates  Features,  Inc.  ��$4*^Jlmj&.

A move towards establishing a  hospital closer to centres of population was launched Saturday  evening, Feb. 7, 1959 at a public  meeting in Sechelt's Legion Hall  when a committee was organized  to delve into possibilities.  General trend of the meeting  was to get a hospital nearer than  Garden Bay no matter how long  it took. Speakers were emphatic  in their views that the area  should look towards 1965 rather  than worry about today.  It was felt there was no possibility of getting any action for  the building, even a 15 bed. hospital, until the situation had  reached the point where Victoria  officials were impressed the hos--  pital was necessary.  The committee announced by  Chairman H. P. Hubbs of Selma  Park included Dr. R. Inglis and  Dr. William McKee, Joe Benner,  Roy Greggs, Harold Roberts,  Fred Jorgenson, W. B. Boucher,  George Page, Jack Mayne, F.  Newton, Reg. Paul, Don Macklam, Mrs. E. E.

Treasurer was T. E. Duffy. Mr.  Hubbs took charge of publicity  requirements.  ���::'���. Objective of the committee  was to ascertain how it could  , operate, whether by charter,  through a new association, or  whether it could operate under  the present' St. Mary's Hospital  association  charter.  Mr. Hubbs in his opening remarks declared a hospital was  needed in a central location and  stressed it would require a united effort from Port Mellon to  Egmont to achieve what the area  required. When St. Mary's Hospital was built some 30 years  ago the population was roughly  3,800. Today (i959) it was three  times that number. Mr. Hubbs  pointed out that the appointed  committee represented every  area from Port Mellon to Egmont.  ���None of the speakers had anything but praise for the service  rendered by St. Mary's Hospital  and its staff y Thei doctors commented that owing to the distance the hospital was away  from homes they were unable to  give patients  daily, attention.  A. A. Lloyd, chairman -of the  hospital board of that date explained how the charter covered  the entire area under consideration.   A   letter   was   read   from  Mrs. Mary M; White, former supervisor of nurses, who wrote  from Chicago that she offered  her full support for the. establishment of a new hospital.  Some time later at a public  meeting a motion, was passed that  an action committee be formed  to implement the establishment  of a Hospital Improvement Dis-  Coast News, Dec.  17,. 1964,  trict. This committee included A.  A. LloydyDr. R. A. Swan, W. Milligan, F. H. Norminton, Harvey  Hubbs, Mrs. Duncan,. Mrs. Clara  Nygren, Dr. Hugh Inglis, Dr. W.  N. McKee,, Ed Sherman, Les  Hempsall and . Magistrate Andrew Johnston.  The same meeting moved that  a brief should be submitted to  the ��� minister of health 'and wel-���.  fare, requesting approval in principle to the establishment of a  Hospital Improvement District;  This brief^ was to be presented  by Dr. Alan Swan, Mr. Hempsall, Mr. .Lloyd and Magistrate  Johnston.  The Sunshine Coast Hospital  Improvement District No. 31 was  incorporated by letters patent on  March 14, 1961, with'M. Filgas,  R. K. Johnson, N. R. McKibbin,  M. J. McMillan, J. E.

Nature's serapiiook  v "By'-  BILL  MYRING  SINKER LOGS  Each year over a million dollars worth of logs sink during  sorting or storage in water. Some  logs sink immediately when  dumped into water; others gradually lose buoyancy and disappear. If the logger had a simple means of separating the potential sinkers he could give  these logs additional seasoning  before dumping them.  The British Columbia Research  council has been investigating  this problem for the past two  years. Field examinations of 25  log characteristics,, potentially  related to floatability, were  made on 1,000: heinloek logs,  which species is principally involved. Then during 28 weeks'  immersion the floatability of individual logs was measured.        -  An electronic computer processed, the resulting 'voluminous data in search of any relationship  between floatability and log characteristics. Although 10 of the 25  characteristics proved to be associated with floatability," no basis for accurate prediction emerged.  Finally it was established that  accurate prediction of floatability can be made only from the'  initial .specific gravity of the  whole log. Since this property,  is difficult to evaluate in thev,fores., attention is now' focusing ori  the separation of logs of lpw;  buoyancy at time of dumping.  Correlations must yet be established between initial buoyancy  and floatability over a period-of  time.  ute and a brown thrasher can eat  more than 6,000 insects in the  period of one. day.

happy occasion with 26 children
attending.   The   Where-is-it   picture show quiz was won by Lou- '

hilarity by rubbing noses, Eskimo-style, with many of the children. Musical chairs was won by
Terry Morrison and Eddie Kingston.
The reception given to the Rev.
and Mrs. J. B. Fergusson arriving with their' now famous guitars could hardly have been more
spontaneous and enthusiastic had
it been the Beatles arriving. The
hootenanny which followed was
broken up only by the arrival of
jugs of orangeade' and plates of
sandwiches, cakes and cookies.
Mrs. Alan Greene was responsible for the afternoon's arrangements and was^ably supported by
Mrs. Pat Murphy.

an enthusiastic pep rally in preparation for the basketball games
the same night.
The^games between Elphinstone
and Pender high were well attended, and'the experimental; running Of a spectator bus from Sechelt- proved" worthwhile. Some

The federal department of
transport has issued a warning
to shipping in Sechelt Inlet that
there is a high voltage powerline
running along the shore of Salmon Inlet which from time to
time crosses over indentations in
the shoreline. The line is located
at about 25 feet above high water. Mariners are advised to use
caution in these small toays to
avoid any of the vessel's gear
coming into contact with the line.
It's Christmas holiday time and
a child playing with a Christmas

for passing cars. The BjC. Automobile Association points out
that it's the responsibility of the
driver to be alert for the youngster — drive carefully!
If you're partying during the
festive season, the B.C. Auto Association reminds you that driving asd drinking make' a lethal
combination. Use public transportation if you've been drinking,

Because your tree begins to  lose moisture as soon as it has  been cut, it is recommended that  as soon as it is brought into your  home, you saw off the butt end  at least one inch above the original out and then place it in a  cool shady place with the butt  end placed in a container of water.  During the entire time the tree  is in use in the home,--be~sure--  the butt end is keipt in water. Re-y  fill the  container every day as  the tree absorbs the water which  keeps it fresh and green and reduces the fire hazard. Investiga^ ...  tion carried on at the U.S. Forest  Products Laboratory in Madison,  Wisconsin, indicates that the use  of fire-retardant chemicals often  does more harm than good, hence  the use of water is recommended.  Be sure the tree is well supported and is away frorii fireplaces, radiators, television sets  or other sources of heat. The  tree should be placed so it will  not block an exit in case of fire.  Lighted candles or other open  flames should never be used on  or about Christmas trees.  Check electric lights and connections. WornV frayed wires or.  electric cords must not be used.  Avoid use of combustible decorations and flammable reflectors for the colored lights. Metal  foil "icicles" or tinsel must be  kept out of bulb sockets.  Avoid overloading the electric  circuits. Aocunr^a^ons cf wrapping paper af:d the placing of  electrical toys under the tree  should be avoided as fire hazards.  Potted    or    living    Christmas  trees brought into the home are'  favored by some who enjoy haying the same tree as many' years  as it remains small enough to  move in and out of doors. Ample  provision should be made for  watering : such trees, especially  when indoors,  y  **',5s  TOWING SERVICE  PENINSULA MOTORS LTD.
