For instance it has been  announced that beard judging'  will take place on July 1 which  means that some of the up-and-  coming men and the older ones  had better srtart ignoring their  razors.  Plans are already afoot for  the obtaining of bands for the  July 1 event and a marathon  walk from Gibsons to Sechelt is  on the list as well.  All this and much more was  given initial discussion at the  last meeting of the committee.  Dave Hopkin was in the chair  and in his opening remarks said  the object of the .committee was  to plan celebrations for 1966 and  1967.-To combine the effort of  Gibsons and rural Gibsons a  united front is needed. All present were requested to becofne  permanent member's of the  committee as representatives  of clubs to which they belonged.  Mr. Hopkin preferred to have  two,-members from each organ;  ization, one member to work  with' their .own club and the  other with the Centennial committee. He recommended -' all  clubs put a Centennial theme  in their ^events and .bring ideas -  f orr the committee to mull over!  Charles' English ' was - elected '  treasurer.   .

Gibsons and Area Firemen are  working on water sports. The  Museum association is considering some sort of activity and the  provincial Centennial caravan  will be located somewhere in  the area. .  Track events, baseball, soccer  and other sports will get consideration in things to be arrang-.  ed. The Rod and Gun club,  Square Dance club, the flying  cluT>, Saddle Club, and others  will be invited to present ideas  and work on them. A film festival is likely and other items are  awaiting further discussion.  Next meeting of the committee  will be on Jan. 24 starting at  7:30 p.m. in room 101, Elphinstone Secondary School.  First meeting  .The first meeting of the committee appointed by the board  of St. Mary's Hospital trustees,'  with James Parker as chairman  and Bob Norminton assisting  discussed the early stages of  preparation of a brief containing plans for the proposed  chronic care wing which .is  planned as an extension of the  new hospital.  7This-preparation will result, in  a brief to be presented to the  hospital officials in Victoria for  their "approval and when this  -has'been-done'thefe^will be further exploration into finances  and'building plans.  1  'TIS THE (  SEASON TO BE JOYFUL!  jfltorp Cfiristmag  from the C.at!

The  largest of these is Chapman  Creek, the next largest Roberts  Creek, the third is Langdale  Creek and the /smallest Chaster  Creek. In the upper reaches all  four creeks are confined in deep  canyons but their route across  the coastal plain does hot impair land development. y  Continued growth is gradually ��� filling the village of Gibsons  and few empty lots remain. It  is; anticipated that apartment  types of dwelling will become  more common, particularly near  the waterfront and on hillside  view properties.  The village waterworks serves about 475 connections within  the village and about 100 put-  side/ The village originally diverted domestic water from a  small creek near Granthams  Landing but increased demand  necessitated a larger supply.  A watershed was then secured  about two miles west of the village, at what is -now the end of  Reed Road. In this watershed  several springs feed a ground  storage reservoir which in turn  if ills a six-inch supply main  bringing water to the village  boundaries. Additional growth  taxed this source to capacity. A  second source of water was established within the village comprising ground springs near the  waterfront from which water, is  pumped to the necessary service  pressure. During the summer of  . 1965 a temporary three-inch  plastic pipe was laid from Chaster Creek to supplement the  ground storage reservoir at  Reed Road. All three sources of  water are however insufficient  to satisfy future village water  demands.  Because Gibsons is not favorably located with respect to water supply sources, it is necessary to expand the future ser  vice area considerably. The recommended service or planning  area extends from Langdale to  Sargeant Bay and from sea level to either the boundary of the  Sechelt Provincial Forest or the  800 foot contour.  Council authorized Martin J.  J. Dayton, Vancouver consulting  engineer, to make his survey on  October 7, 1964. A July, 1963  sewerage survey recommended  that a water supply for Gibsons  should be studied in detail before a sewer system was constructed.  The demand for water in Gbi-  sons can be satisfied by the existing system providing 1966 is  not a worse drought year than  1965.  There are still many sections  of Gibsons water system that  are deficient in fire protection  by current waterworks standards but the report recommends many improvements  which can be constructed over  a period of time as the need  arises and the money is available. These are mainly the laying of eight or six inch mains  in   various   areas.  In order to supply predicted  future water demands in the  present service area alone, Gibsons must look Deyond its own  boundaries for an additional  source. If this is not done Gibsons will not grow.  Gibsons 1965 records show an  average yearly consumption of  approximately 35 gallons per  capita per day. This is well below the 125 to 150 gallons per  day in the Greater Vancouver  area. As urbanization takes  place Gibsons area water consumption will rise considerably.  Only Chapman Creek can sup-  nly the ultimate demands of  Gibsons area. Development of  this supply would open up a  large area for growth and development and the Chapman Creek  supply would be less expensive  for everyone in the wider planning area.  p A two-phase water development .prograna accompanied by an  alternate plan for the Xxibsbns-Langdale area was presented to  Gibsons municipal council: at Tuesday nights meeting. Chapman  Creek and Langdale Creek are'/'thepropo^d water sources..  ��� With Chairman A. E. ISitchey he_iding council, the Martin J.  J.;Dayton water survey import contaiiiihgthiE! recommendation  that Gibsons proceed in^ im  provement comprising; construction of a groundwater production  weU, water mains, a booster station and water reservoir, was presented.      ,      --y-'  Council decided to start as soon as possible ori the development  ofthe test wellas a start. The foundation ior this report was laid  in 1964 when council under Chairman Ritchey decided the survey  should be made."      .   '      y " ""  The report also recommended the village attempt to form a  water committee of representatives of communities within a specified planning area with a view to implementing a second phase  water scheme where water would be under control of one authority.  The two-phase plan concerning Gibsons first considers the  water supply system to cost $98,000 to accommodate 3,000 users  which could eventually be integrated into the second phase system  Langdale to Sechelt to cost slightly more than $1,000,000 to serve  more than 11,000 users. An alternate plan was also offered which  , would cover the Langdale-Gibsons area only to cost $392,000 including, the Gibsons $98,000.  Gibsonsa retwrnmendaMon  The recommended plan for Gibsons only would call for:  A test well, production well, pumping station and chlorination  at the existing wen field in  An eight-inch water main from' the production well to the  existing six-inch main ori School Road, 1,000 feet, to cost $6,000.  ��� Demolition .of the oldreservoir; on School Road and construction bf a (booster pumping station, to cost $15,000.  An eight-inch main from School Road reservoir to the existing  six-inch main on Sechelt Highway; 1,200 feet.to cost $7,200.  Construction of a l,00p;000 gallon intermediate zone reservoir  adjacent to existing springs vat Reed and Henry Roads, to cost  $26,000.  yP;.y ,77-.    ..pPp,"��� y,'���.������:+7y[���,.       .,y ;y.'

This adds up to a total of $866,000 and with 18 percent  added for contingencies and engineering it brings the total to  $1,120,000 including the $98,800 for Gibsons. >  Alternate plan offered  The alternate waterworks plan comprising Langdale, Hopkins"  Landing, Soames Point, Granthams Landing, Gibsons and Gibsons  Heights would supply water from Langdale Creek. This would  amount to, including the Gibsons $98,800, a total of $392,800.  A breakdown of cost, excluding the Gibsons section of $98,800  contains a Langdale Creek-intake to cost $20,000; a six-inch supply  main from the intake to a five million gallon reservoir at Langdale  Greek, 3,000 feet to cost $18,000, an eight-inch supply main from  the reservoir along North Road to Sechelt Highway, 11,000 feet to  cost $03,800; a six-inch distribution main on Reed Road, 45,400 feet  to cost $2$,200; a six-inch distribution main from Gibsons to Langdale, $83,000 and a 150,000 gallon concrete storage reservoir in  Langdale to cost $32,000.  With 20 percent added for contingencies this totals $294,000 and  with the Gibsons total of $98,800 added makes the complete total  $392,800.  In commenting on the Langdale scheme the Dayton survey said  this first phase of a supply from Langdale, augmented by Gibsons  village springs would supply about 6,000 people. There should be  6,000 people in the smaller planning area by 1975 at which time a  five million gallon storage reservoir could be constructed at Langdale Creek to safeguard the supply. With this reservoir the number  of people that could be supplied increases to 8,000 and the total cost  to about $500,000.  Financial aspects outlined  Financial aspects as propounded by the survey would  require senior government assistance but the first step to be  taken towards implementation of  the Langdale to Sechelt proposal should be the establishment of a water committee  among the interested communities. Provincial and federal  governments could then be petitioned for financial aid and  enabling legislation and an orderly course of action. But, in  the meantime the survey recommends, Gibsons should proceed with improvements to its  own supply system. as outlined  in the report.  The initial and annual cost of  the two waterworks systems,  not including the cost of purchasing existing waterworks  would be as follows:  The plan deriving water from  Chapman Creek, capital cost,  $1,120,000; bond redemption and  interest, 20-year bonds at six  percent, $98,000 annually; maintenance cost $20,000 and overhead cost $20,000 making an annual operating cost of $138,000.  Cost of the plan deriving water from Langdale Creek would  contain a capital cost of $500,000  with annual bond redemption  arid interest, 20-year, six percent bonds at $44,000; maintenance cost $12,000 and overhead  costs $15,000 making an annual  operating cost of $71,000.

Unify in the Community gets things done  An amiable outpouring  For people brought up, as many are, to know the Bible only in  the King James' version, the angels' proclamation at Christmas  is remembered as: "Glory to. God in the highest, and on earth  peace, goodwill towards men.'' ,  But it is entirely likely that those words do not represent exactly the original of the song over Bethlehem. The study of ancient  manuscripts of Holy Scripture, many of them undiscovered when  the Authorized Version was put forth at the start of the 17th century, to become known and loved by succeeding generations of  English-speaking people, has led scholars ��� to suggest that two alternative versions have better support. One is "Peace on earth, to  men of good will," and the other is "peace on earth among those  in whom He is well pleased." Today many modern Bibles follow  one or another of these in preference to King James. The change  in meaning is suggestive and helpful.    .    z        , ,, ���   y -  We v/ho live in what is sometimes called a welfare state, easily get into the state of mind in which we expect everything to be  .done for us, without effort or initiative on our own part. Religiously, we sit back and expect God to do everything while we do nothing. And the peace of God, that peace which is much more than  .the. mere absence of war, is treated as a kind of blanket donation  :fr9?1. heaven, Peace, goodwill towards men becomes an amiable  outpouring, indiscriminately upon all, of the divine benevolence.  How much better to believe that God does indeed give His  peace ���tout to those who have made themselves ready to receive  it, to men of good will, to men in whom He is pleased, because  they have signified a willingness to make their own wills one with  His. There is nothing wrong in suggesting that. But it does remind  men to bestir themselves and to seek, by an act of their own wills  reaching up to meet the will of God, the peace of God which pass-  eth all understanding. St. John reminds those who read the introduction to the Fourth Gospel that the fulness of the divine gift is  to as many as received him.   ���  Peace, then, is a conditional thing. Do we fulfil the condition?  (By NANCY CLEAVER)  'O come, little children, O come one and all,  The bradle is here as in Bethlehem's stall.  And see what the-Father, from high Heav'n above,  Has sent us tonight as a proof of his love."  This little verse appears be-  ��� low a lovely painting by Margaret W. Tarrant in her Christmas Book. In the picture a  little girl and her younger  brother are standing on tiptoe  to look into a manger. In the  background an angel, with out-/  stretched hands, is ystaridirig  looking down on the Baby Jesus too.  In many homes a Nativity  Scene or creche is loved by  the children. The small manger  and figures of the baby, of  Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds,  the Wise Men, the animals in  the stable, remind the whole  family of the most important  thing about Christmas��� the  celebration of the birthday of  the Christ Child.  Unless     parents,     especially  mothers,  carefully plan to put  this emphasis on Christmas,  a  child  might  easily .be  misled.  He might conclude  that. Santa  Claus,   the . gifts / he : receives,  the   parties   and festivities   he  attends,   are   the  things  which  make Christmas special.  *     *     *  During the  weeks  of Advent  read aloud in your family from  the   Bible   the   Nativity; story.  There are many lovely Christmas tales and legends, but there  is no better story than that of  the visits of the shepherds, and  the   Wise   Men   bringing   their  gifts ��� gold, frankincense and  myrrh. For the very little child  there is a The Story of Jesus��� .  in The Little Golden Book ser->  ies, and the first chapters contain a number of fine stories of  Jesus' life for children, such as  Walter de la Mare's. AH these  recount the coming of the Christ  child.  Some families have a favorite  Christmas story which they read;;  aloud, as a whole or in part,  when their children are older,  on Christmas .Eye. ^For over' a  century Charles ��� Dickens' A  Christmas Carol has been enjoyed in many homes and the.  figure of Tiny Tim arid Old  Scrooge is as familiar as..that of  a cousin or an uncle.  If you have never tasted the  pleasure of A Christmas Carol  why not try it out on your fam  ily this year?  The poets have written with  beauty . and simplicity about  Christmas. A favorite with boys  and girls is Frances Chesterton's How Far is it to Bethlehem? The questions any youngsters might well ask: "Can we  see the little Child?" "May we  stroke the creatures there?";/  If we touch His tiny hand, Will  he awake?" Read aloud to your  child a Christmas poem instead,  of a story at bedtime one night  ��� ond re-read it a second time  if he wants" to hear the music  of the words.  Have you launched your child  on the Scrap Book Habit? Early in December supply him with  a   new  scrapbook;   paste,   duU  scissors, pencil, crayons, paints.  Suggest he put into his Christ-  has Book what he likes best.  /Perhaps he will print a copy  of a short poem you have read  aloud.  He may want to; draw  . and  color his  own  picture  of  decorating  the  Christmas   tree  or hanging up his stocking or  :  playing in the snow. If you have  kept    last    year's    Christmas  cards, let him have any Nativity  or other scenes he would like to  have in his own Christmas Book.  .'���%..���''���'' *     #  He may feel that this book  of his very own is too precious  to part with��� but perhaps, if  ,it is a particularly colorful, interesting child's book, he might  choose next year to give it; to  a Children's Hospital or donate  7 it to a box packed for overseas  needy families by the Save the  Children Fund.  Christmas, the Birthday of  the Christ Child A large poster on a signboard beside a  busy street in many places tells  this story with its colorful picture of the first Christmas. Beneath in small printing is the  suggestion that a child should  -ask- his SundayrSchool teacher  to tell him this story.  Why not ask the two people  who gave him the gift of life?  If parents are too busy, or too  tired or too careless during December to share with their, son  or daughter .the true meaning  of Christmas y they are, indeed too busy!  The D^vis Ottawa Diary  ��"You've packed my purse!  ����� /  (By  JACK  DAVIS  Coast-Capilano M.P.)  Several Federal - Provincial  conferences have been held in  Ottawa of late. The most important was. the gathering of finance ministers frorii across the  nation. They came to report bn  the economic outlook for 1966.  But more significant still was  their . description of. their own  plans for the coming year. They  said how much of the taxpayers  money they would spend and "  liow they would, spend it in the  months ahead.  Ottawa no longer operates in  the dark in this regard. Not  only does it canvas the investment intentions of private companies, but it discusses the forecasts of the provinces as well.  Armed with a much better idea  of how their spending is going,  it can then draft its own budget  in the best interests of the nation.  Assuming full employment  and rising prices it will then  reduce its own outlays on goods  and services. Alternatively, if  unemployment is on the increase and excess capacity exists in industry, it v/ill lay out  more money in order to get the  economy rolling again.  The timing of these Finance  Ministers   conferences   is   also  significant. Generally speaking,  Ottawa leaves the construction ,  of roads, dams, office buildings  and factories to others. But it  can move in a big way. When it  should do so must, however, be ;  determined well ahead of time. ;  This is  why  the  Pearson  gov- 7  ernment carried out these dis- J  cussions with the provinces in ,  December rather than  waiting ;,  until its  own  budget is  to be '  brought down well into the New  Year.  Also important is the fact that  the provinces, collectively, now  spend more money on goods'  and services than does the nation as a whole. Ottawa, by  comparison,' has been holding  the line. Its total outlay, as a  percentage of Canada's national  income, is actually. on the decline. By contrast the outlays  of the provinces, taiken together with that of their creatures,  jhe municipalities,: have been  shooting upward as never he-  fore. ' ���-:.-..  The finance ministers from  the provinces reported on their  budget. intentions. But even  more pressing, from their point  of view, was the matter, of taxation. Over a year ago they  agreed, along with Ottawa, to  set up a tax structure committee. This committee was.to report, not only on priorities as  to spending, but also where the  money would come from. Most  of the provincial ministers hope  to get a larger share of the  federal tax dollar. This is why  they, along with Acting Finance  Minister Mitchell Sharp, listened to the progress report of  their joint structure committee  with the greatest of interest  recently.  ' Co-operative federalism can  be an empty phrase. Or it can  be"used to describe the internal  relations of a federal state  whose governments, at all'levels  have decided to push ahead in  close and friendly liaison, one  with the other, and with the  greater interest of all the nation's people at heart.  The recent meeting of our finance ministers in Ottawa is a  good example, I think, of cooperative federalism in practice. However we will need  many more meetings of this  kind if Canadians from all parts  of pur great country are to get  along together and prosper as  they should.  N.

Town bus  speeded up  A new SMT bus schedule due  Jan. 1 as the result of a speedup in the timing of the Langdale and Earl's Cove ferry runs  will not/ alter departure time  from Vancouver. The main  change will be on the morning  bus leaving at 8:40 am., arriving at Langdale five minutes  earlier and saving .time all the  way to Powell River reaching  there at 2 p.m. instead of 2.25  p.m. Most of the time saved  will be in the speed-up of the  ferry to Saltery Bay with a 45  minute crossing instead of the  present, one hour trip. .  There will also be time savings on the, trip from Powell  River to Vancouver, chiefly at  the. Powell River-Earl's Cove  end'of thexuri.'.:."'

The membership then gave' unanimous  approval to assist the teachers  as well as volunteering to provide; treats for pre-schOOl; child-.  reh.';v;-'''''fy y "':'" '���'/:  During the reports from the  principals, Mr. Skelton of Pender Harbour Secondary expressed the hope that parents would  seriously reconsider; t h e i r  child's program, particularly to  the worth and advantage of vocational education.  This was emphasized when it  was pointed out that by Grade  10 these students will have to  choose- from many strearhs of  education.    '   *  Most important, these programs cannot be switched at  later years without taking the  required courses, which would  involve repetition of: grades. Obviously these decisions cannot  be left to 15 or 16 year old students, but must be made after  parental conferences with teachers and mutual discussion of  each student's capabilities.  Under the direction of Miss  Critoph of Madeira Park Elementary, the parents were invited to assess their attitudes and  opinions in that netherland between home and school.  Most parents soon found that  they were provoked into serioiis  thought and expression: The  teachers and principals avoided  monopolizing the discussion and  encouraged the parents to ex  press their views of homework,  study hours, acceleration and  pressures.  The consensus seemed to be  that there are no clear cut  paths to better learning but  there are avenues of co-operation which we can develop.  The PTA had a productive  meeting and discovered that  there are areas of uncertainty  and gaps in communication between home and school which  can ba bridged with closer contact.  NEED A CAR?

The ability of Elphinstone boys was really put  to a test in the close games.  However, after tough competi-  tionj Elphinstone moved ahead  to win by a mere six points in  both games.  Our school gym developed a  very restive.air in preparation  for the Christmas dance held  Dec. 17. The Future Teachers  are getting experience by going  down to the Elementary School  to observe.  The school is closed for the  holidays on Dec. 22 with an indoor track meet composed of  many unusual events, such as  book balance, obstacle, pick-aback and balloon races arid  many more. I'll close with a  Merry Christmas and a Happy  New Year to all. ��� Linda Warnock.  Tired? Sluggish?

This message is the combined  effort of a few people who must,  of necessity, remain anonymous.  Now, .if we have aroused your  curiosity, perhaps only a little  to read this far, you must read  on but, first of all, we would  place before you a very few  pertinent situations.  Christmas is here and with it  the festive times, the parties  and the main reason for the  celebrations, the happiness of  the children. Christmas is the  children's day.  Many of you will be attending church, while many more  will be celebrating the event  elsewhere. At the same time,  quite a few of you will have so  sore a head that, although -you  had every intention of remaining sober, you fell by the way  side and are too ill to even put  your noses outside the front  door. Again, how many of your  friends and relations will,be involved iri car accidents where  lives are lost and others maimed for life? All this to celebrate  what should be a Holy Day.  A certain few will be so ashamed of themselves that they  will not be seen in public for a  few days after| And then comes  the old refrain, Never again.  The road to hell is paved with  good intentions. '  These last are the people to  whom we are trying to reach  in this message. If they remember much of the previous evening, they are lucky.

The chiilden are:even,  by contact, ashamed of themselves.  So what does our reveller do?  He just takes another belt at  the bottle to forget the whole  damn incident and finds that,  in a few hours, he's again in  the same state as he was and  has been many times before. He  has not yet realized that his  drinking friends are only fair-  weather friends and the bottle  a broken crutch.  There is a myth to. which  many of us are addicted that the  purpose of life is to be happy.  There is nothing more demeaning to man than his narcotic  (and alcohol is a narcotic) pursuit of fun. Where was it ever  written that life could always be  easy or completely free of conflict or of pain. Those who seek  this narcotic refuge can find it  in tranquilizer pills or alcohol  ��� or in senility which follows  prematurely the use of both.  The purpose of life is to matter, to be productive, to be useful,   .. . , .. ..���:���-  '  Sometimes we are asked,  what is this happiness without  alcohol that you talk of? Our  answer must be, and is, like  that given by the .little boy who  was asked to define an elephant.  He said that he couldn't but he  would know one when he saw it.

At present the ' provincial  legislation controlling two-year  colleges is embodied in the  Public Schools Act. Essentially,  school boards wishing to set up  a college must ask the permission of the Council of Public  Instruction to hold a plebiscite  to determine whether or not  the people of the school district  concerned favor a college. If  the plebiscite favors a college,  a regional college council may  be formed. The council then  negotiates with the various  school boards on the location  and financing of the college.  Once an agreement has been  reached a vote on the local  share ��� of the financing of the  college must be held in the  participating districts.  At present 'the financing of  academic programs in regional  colleges is 50 percent local for  capital and operating costs.  The non-academic programs  are, eligible for federal support  under the Technical and Vocational Training Assistance act,  1960, but each college must  negotiate its own program with  provincial and federal authorities to determine which programs qualify.  It must be emphasized that  the financing of regional colleges is likely to be reviewed.  The whole matter of federal  aid to higher education may  change as a result of the Bladen  Commission report.  The recommendations of this  report are obviously only the  first  stage.

SGTA seeks members  .Sunshine Coast Tourist Association membership forms have  been sent out to businessmen  on the Sunshine Coast and Texada Island. So many inquiries  about Texada Island are received by the association that businessmen there have been given  the opportunity to indicate if  they wish to be included in the  Sunshine Coast brochure.  Work on the brochure will be  underway as. soon as membership forms are returned. Deadline has been set for Jan. 7, in  order to have the brochure  ready for distribution in February, at which time inquiries begin to come in from prospective  vacationers.  Two promotional activities  are scheduled for the spring  months by the association. In  March, the S.C.T.A. will be participating with Vancouver and  Fraser Valley Association in a  publicity booth at the Vancouver   Sports,   Boat   and   Travel  -Show, and in April will be sending a lady representative on a  promotional tour of the western.

Thomson)  Many times the readers of the  Coast News have been given accounts of Savary Island written  by my father. The last of these  dealt with our trip at Easter  this year and another short stay  in July, just prior to my leaving for a year of exchange  teaching in England. Mention  was often made of our Easter  ��� provisions and high on the list  was a plum pudding which my  mother provided.  The silver sands of Savary  are many miles and many seas  away and it will be several  months before I can retreat  from the cares of the busy  world and once again stroll in  peace along those wave-swept  shores.  Since our leaving in July, we  have travelled almost 29,000  miles by train, boat, car and  foot. Four days on the train,  with a stop-over at Winnipeg to  visit relations, took us to Montreal, where we boarded our  ship for Rotterdam.  After nine days of 13-course  meals and almost calm seas, we  arrived in Holland on August 2,  ^feSigt-F^^J^iS^^-S^'-S^&'-^SiSSS^  and found it to be a very prosperous land filled with storybook windmills, dykes, canals,  and barges as v/ell as modern  buildings and industries. Every  inch of land is being put to use,  and crops grow right up to the  edge of the roads. Certainly the  saying that God made the world  but the Dutch made Holland,  and are making the most of it,  is evident at every turn.  We picked up  a Volkswagen  bus v/hich we had ordered before leaving, and spent several  days  seeing the  sights  of Holland.  Rotterdam is the largest  sea port in the world, and hundreds   of boats  of  all  shapes,  (Continued on Page 12)  r^lFy^fit:  t*KT-~y^-' *-^���_  To Our Many p  Good Friends ��  Andy, Chris and Dianne    j|  CHRIS' JEWELRY      I  Sechelt, B.C. *  ?s��_  *s_?

As we were  on a rather limited budget, we  chose to camp and do our own  cooking, which, with three children,x we found both wise and  very satisfactory. The Dutch  bake shops turn out some of  the biggest, creamiest and most  appetizing creations, and every day at 11:00 o'clock we  would stop t0 sample something  new.   . .-, ���  Our first night of camping out  put us to the test ��� winds up to  50 mph with heavy rain hit 'the  camp site ��� and it was a sad  and sodden lot that emerged  from most of the tents in the  morning. We had taken the advice of a friend who had camped  in  the  Lowlands   and  had  ."And I say this without fear  "���    of contradiction !",-  pitched our tent on the edge of  the drainage canal, at least the  water had some place to go,  but the middle of the field was  a lake up to five inches, deep.  The streets in the cities are  very narrow, crowded with people and bicycles, no one takes  the slightest, notice of speed  limits, no parking signs, or  traffic signals, so, when I found  myself going the wrong way on  a road for bicycles only, little  reaction was registered by the  oncoming traffic. Like true tourists, we went to see churches,  museums, the Delft Treasures,  and the House of Anne Frank,  bought wooden shoes, went for  a canal ride, but just couldn't  muster up enough courage to  try the eels. ,  Camping usually consisted' of  trying to find a space big  enough for the car and tent,  along with many others doing  exactly the same. It is a far  cry from the spacious camp  sites offered by the B.C. Forestry Service. One camp, site at  the Hague had over 15,000 people in it and nowhere in Holland  can you pull off the road and  just camp, like at home.  Southern   Germany   and   the  Rhine Valley were our next adventures.   Many   of   the   townst  (Continued on Page 13)  _ *  4  I with all  good wishes  at Qhristmas!

Heidelburg Castle with its 50,-  000 gallon wine cask was a real  tourist trap, even the wine, vintage of 1792? left a lot to be  desired. Many of the castles are  set up as youth hostels and are  full during the summer months.  And so, after two weeks, we  found our way to Austria. Was  it the mountains, the forests,  or the clear cold mountain  streams that held us like a  spell? It is hard to say, but we  liked everything about it. The  houses, with their .beautifully  carved wooden trim, balconies  surrounded with red geraniums,  and walls of shawVwhite' stucco,  set in green fountain, meadows,  were sights to which no picture  can ever do justice. \  Life in the small villages is  slow and easy and when the  cows held up traffic on the main  and only through road in St.  Anton, there was not a single  horn toot or a raced car motor,  and the cows also took their  ' time. Ort a- small side road in  Austria we were stopped by a  young Canadian from Toronto  who had been on the Continent  for five months. He asked if  we had an extra Canadian flag  of the new design, as none were  available in Europe. Much to  his" delight, we had, and his  words still ring in our ears:  "'Crazy, man."  Time was growing short, for  we had to be in England for the  opening", of school on August 23,  so we reluctantly headed for  home by way of Switzerland,  France, Luxemburg and Belgium. After ' many, nights in  camp sites situated too close to  main roads and crowded with  humanity, we thought we would  find a quiet field all to. ourselves  This we did, and had just settled down for the night, when  heaven and earth were rent  asunder.  I had picked a dandy spot  right '.at-...the, ;business end of an  Air Force jet field, specializing  in night fighters. In the morh-  ing'I read the large sign.b'jck at  the main road, which even in  French made it very clear that  ���liflW,  ml  "The, way to a man's heart,  .

The classic story, adapted by  Maxwell Anderson, is set to ori  ginal music by Bernard Herr  man who conducts' a 40-piece  orchestra. Carols are sung by  the 16-voice Roger Wagner Chorale.  * *     *  Other principals in the cast  include Ray Middleton who doubles as, Fred, Scrooge's merry-  hearted nephew, and as the  Ghost of Christmas Present;  Bob Sweeney as Bob Cr'atchit,  Scrooge's - downtrodden clerk;  and .English actor Christopher  Cook';-'as Tiny Tim,. the crippled  waif-like son of Bob Cr'atchit.  Otherp well-known cast members include-Hollywood actress  Sally Fraser, Queenie Leonard,  Craig Hill, Rex Evans and Tony  Pennington. Miss Fraser also  appears in two roles, that, of  Belle, sweetheart of Scrooge's  youth, and as the Ghost of  Christmas Past.  Anderson's adaptation adheres  closely to the Dickens' story.  Scrooge, rebuffing Yuletide  greeting with scorn, turns down .  a Christmas dinner invitation  and begrudgingly gives Crat'chit  Christmas Day off tp pass with'  his family.  * *     *  Scrooge returns to his "bare  lodgings for.his evening gruel,  falls asleep and dreams that the  spirit of his late partner, Jacob  Marley, returns" to warn him  that he faces a life of damnation  unless he redeems his soul with  acts of kindness and humanity.  Following the visits of the spirits Scrooge wakes up on Christmas morning realizing the import of his nightmare and quickly makes amends.    :  Both March and Rathbone are  ��� /        Ju.-r.iji. ifs.&i-y%  ringing images of their respective - characterizations.

Charles Dickens' A Christmas  Carol, written in 1843 is this  great literary work concerning  Christian love in an age of cruelty and horror. ..������.  In this story Dickens' genius  caught the many injustices, the  extreme . poverty and the un-  healthful conditions of "his time.  But he also revealed how Christian love could exist in such a  period. 7  To represent injustice, Dickens created a miserly Scrooge;  for poverty, a poor family named Cratchit; and for Christian  love, a crippled innocent called  Tiny Tim.

After four  sleepless  hours  of jets  at  100  feet, I wish I had read that sign  on the way in.  Next evening we sailed from  Ostend to Dover and arrived in  Jolly Old England at 2 a.m.  amidst rain and wind. We spent  a cold wet night on the fields at  Dover. In the morning we just  threw everything into the car,  headed north by way of London  Here's hoping your Yule  is filled with joy!  Cliff and the Boys  SUNSHINE COAST SERVICE lid.

The house, a small two storey  place of red brick construction,  is just one of many in a. small  housing estate. Friends had arranged flowers and ��� turned 'on  the hot water tank, and had put  hot-water bottles  in our beds,  and believe me they were welcome and necessary, for it was  cold, even in August, and it has  gone from bad to worse;  " We had many adjustments to  make in our daily living, for,  without a refrigerator, it meant  buying for. just the day and not  for a week. Milk comes only in  pint bottles, and one day, when  we asked for 12 pints, it was  met with a look of staggering  disbelief.  Shopping for food is  not a one-stop supermarket affair,   but  is   a   one-item,   one-  store outing.  Shepshed, once called Sheep-  shed, dates back several hundred years, and the old church  of St. Botolph's; built about 1200"  A.D. still stands strong as do  many of the houses. Thatch  roofs and Tudor exteriors are to  be seen at every turn ��� a way  of living which has not changed  for hundreds of years. It is not .  what would be called a bustling  town, but it does have a theatre  and 15 pubs ��� delightful places  in which to spend an evening  with friends for a drink arid a  game of darts or dominoes.  The Pied Bull, or the Plough  and others look like run-down  dubious places from the outside,  but open any door and one steps  into an old world- of custom and  tradition and a warm welcome  that takes in everyone from local Englishman to Canadian  stranger.  Terms of Luve and Ma Duck  end most sentences, and Shepshed is known for its own dialect. We are just called The  Canadian Family, for, like the  -Sunshine Coast there is a bush  telegraph here that had reached almost every corner of the  village before we arrived. Most  of the people we have/met have  lived in Shepshed all their lives,  as had their parents and grandparents. Those who have been  *__ "     - _��_y*.... -'**���">  -  here for less than 20 years are  referred to as new.  Little can be seen of how.7^000  people are supported by this village,  but  on  closer inspection  the place is alive with factories,  many of which look the sanies  as   the   old   typical   red  brick  houses, ;as indeedmariy of; them  are. Hosiery factories, knitting  mills   and  shoe factories   turn  out products familiar to Canadians under the names of Jaegar,  St. Michaels knitted wear, and  Hush Puppies, these last marked Made in U.S.A.  A ten-mile drive to the west  through fields of grain, past  flocks of sheep and a coal mine  takes me to Ashby-de-la-Zouch,  where I teach in the Ivanhoe made a  short trip to Blarney  Secondary School. Here also are  many new situations to adjust  to, vbutPitie students and teachers' have' all done their utmost  to make the change a pleasant  one. : ly  7 7 Each weekend .winds up on  the move.
