The adve  Bruce Charles and Ryan Karl Hogan, sons of Mr. Mike  and Mrs* Pat Hogan are the first twin babies born in St.  Mary's Hospital at Sechelt. Ryan Karl tipped the scales at  8 lbs. 10 ounces, [and Bruce Charles at 6 lbs., 12 ounces.  They will be brothers for Laura and Heather, Laura being  the eldest at four years old and Heather one year younger  at three. (Grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wilson.  Mr. Wilson is the Bobby Wilson of the fire department and  Mrs. Wilson is known for her work behind the Co-op store  meat counter. Dr. Walter Burtnick attended Mrs. Hogan.  Report on equipment  The report by Sechelt councillors on the condition of the park  building and its contents revealed that the building was in good  condition but that some of the  equipment was not in the building.  This report was made by  Councillors Ben Lang and Louis  Hansen at the request of Chairman Mrs. Chris Johnston who  retires as chairman on Dec. 31.  Councillor Benner, recreation  committee chairman who has.  had considerable to do with the  building stated that the missing  equipment was in storage and  that he had at previous meetings said that he would store the  stuff  until  it was  needed.   He  mnffl��M��fflran��ttffl��M��nn��u��mmnmm��iranm��UTinra..;ft  Watchnight  service  Bethel Baptist, Sechelt and  Calvary Baptist, Gibsons, will  combine for a Watchnight service at 11:30 p.m. New Year's  Eve.  In view of the special significance to Canadians of 1967 an  open invitation is extended to  everyone to greet the New Year  by seeking God's blessing.  The service will be held in  Gibsons Baptist Church on Park  Road opposite Brothers Memorial Park.  added that now that he was out  of council (not being re-elected)  he would turn the missing  equipment over to .the building.  It was recommended by council that the sealcoating of woodwork and outside painting be  left to the discretion of the incoming council.  After adjournment, Councillor  Hansen commenting on retirement of the chairman, said,  "She has done more for the village than anyone else would  have done."  Councillor Ben Lang: "We  have had lots of bellyaching but  we always came through."  Chairman Mrs. Johnston:  "The people haven't given me  ioo many problems and they  have been very good to work  with. The people of the village  are good people and over the  years I have found they are not  complainers."  Milk fund up  The Cup of Milk Fund coffee  party over Christmas this year  practically tripled its contributions received when compared  with last year. Some contributions still have to be turned in  but collection cans and the coffee party plus $15 from St. Aidan's Sunday school really put  the event over the top this year.  The coffee party was held at  the home of Mrs. Robert Ben-  nie, Point Rd., Hopkins Landing  Ring stolen  RCMP are searching for the  culprit who broke into the home  of Daniel Dick, Chaster and  Gower Point road area on Dec.  26 and after creating damage inside the house made off with a  diamond ring.  Pennies taken from a Cup of  Milk Fund box and some minor  damage to some of the contents  in Gibsons Elementary School  is reported by the RCMP. The  damage was not regarded as  serious. Who made the break-  in is not known but it took considerable force to batter in a  door to gain entry.  Power off  A Tuesday morning power out  age in the area lasted longer  than anticipated. A transformer  in Langdale area burned out  after a switchover had been  made according to plan.  The switchover started in the  Cheekye section and covered  all the way to Powell River.  Both pulp mills, Port Mellon  and Powell River were involved in the switchover, rearranging distribution of power in the  area due to the setting up of another power line. Changeover  time was expected to be brief  but the outage lasted about 90  minutes.  CHIMNEY  FIRE  A chimney fire Tuesday evening brought quick response  from Gibsons firemen. The fire  occurred at the home of W. H.  Kent, 1223 Headlands Road.  BOY SCOUT RAFFLE  Winners of the Boy Scout raffle are Quilty, ticket 1625 for  the upholstered rocking chair  and Kirsti Wiren, Ticket 1563  for the transistor radio.  ��������� :y-:%  Gibsons municipal council at  its -meeting last week received  priifted copies of the planning  study prepared by town planers-Robert Williams and Associates, of Vancouver.  This 32-page study was accompanied by a letter which  stated that recommendations  made in the report, aside from  zoning proposals, are necessarily.; general. There were several  points which should be given  further study. Most important  of ;J these are the questions of  harbor improvements and waterfront development.  When, new  water  mains   are  laid    along    Sechelt    Highway,  Pratt Road and in time, Shaw  Road, it is expected that Gibsons council will use "six inch  piping. This was brought out at  last    week's    council    meeting  when  Martin Dayton,  engineer  for Gibsons water problems outlined by letter that it would cost  about $42,000 to supply a  system for those roads.  , Not   having   that   amount   of  cash in sight council settled on  the possibility of tackling, when  possible, an $11,000 expenditure  Covering Sechelt Highway and  North Rd.  Councillor. Fred Feeney explained that a six inch water  main on a water system in effect helps cut insurance rates  when compared with a four inch  �� pip^KiAfter; furtherr; general. dis-  cussipriy the fiaytbh^ietter wasv  filed for further reference.  Earlier council decided the  low tender of Murphy Wakefield,  Vancouver, of $2,857 plus 5%  sales tax be accepted to cover  costs for the pump at the new  well: High tender was $3,290.  There's nothing so important or looked-forw'ard-to with greater  anticipation than the arrival of a young one in the home. The advent  of the first baby in this area will be heralded with particular interest as Sunshine Coast Kiwanians, together with the Coast News,  local merchant and private individuals will join in welcoming the  First Baby born closest to midnight, January 1, with donations and  gifts to the little one and its parents.

This seasonal deluge of mail also included  Keats and Gambier Islands,  both of which come under the  jurisdiction of the local post  office.  To handle the estimated 5%  increase, extra help worked at  top speed along with the regular  staff for the past three weeks  and succeeded in maintaining a  day by day clearance, remaining right on top of the incoming and outgoing spate of letters, cards, parcels, papers and  periodicals. The last big push  was pretty well completed with  Saturday's mail deliveries.  Rain record  December rainfall has broken  the record and is close to 13  inches of rain for the month,  according to Dick Kennett, weather recorder. The last mark  for December rainfall which vas  record-breaking was December,  1962 when 12.50 inches fell. At  8 p.m. Wednesday night the figure was 12.51 and raining heavily.  Christmas day temperature  was a high of 42 and a low of  30. The warmest recent Christmas ;day occurred in 1963 when  the high was 58 and the low 50.  "' A;first must comefor everything  ;.-. . '.

Here's hoping your New Year  Will never reach the brink  Of making you a sonneteer.  The lights of Gibsons  Like a myriad of sparkling  gems on mounds of dark and  sombre velvet; these are the  Christmas lights of Gibsons ���  shining out through the night,  reflected across the harbor from  the quiet town, like the flaring  Northern Lights on a still, frosty prairie Christmas Eve. These  too, are the Yuletide lights of  Christmas.  With so many gaily decorated  homes,   more   than   ever   this  year, and the lighted holly tree  in the village square, the beckoning lights of the stores along  the main street and up on Sunnycrest   Plaza,   all   in   all,   it  would be hard to single out any  particular    place    for   honors.  However one has to pause for  a longer moment of sheer delight before the home of Charlie  Robinson,  halfway up the  big  hill, close to the RCMP station.  Here indeed, is a Christmas  fairyland of light and color, of  festooned trees and Santa's little people, playing hide and seek  in  the lovely grove before the  house, which is also picked out  in gaily colored lights.  Charles Robinson, one of the  five sons, explained how this  fairyland came about ��� and  how long it took to bring it to  such a deKahtful state of per  fection. Charles gave full credit  to his brother Carman now living in Vancouver, who 10 or 15  years ago, with his father's  blessing and working with his  brothers, Charles, Winston John  and Godfrey hit upon the idea  of sort of lighting things up  around the old place for the  holidays.  As the years went by, more  and more lights came on at the  Robinson place over the festive  season. And so, every year at  this time, the cheery lights  beckon homeward the five brothers and their families and  with grand-daughter Debbie,  daughter of John and Arlene, to  add the brightness of childhood  to the scene.  Again, this year, a happy family reunion will be held at Charlie Robinson's.  The Christmas lights of Gibsons shine bravely forth once  more to proclaim again, Peace  on Earth and Goodwill Toward  Men.

Touch hands  A Thought for the New Year by John Norton  Ah, friends, dear friends, as years go on and heads get gray,  how fast the guests do go!  Touch hands, Touch hands, with those that stay.  Strong hands to weak, old hands to young, around the New Year's  board, touch hands.  The false forget, the foe forgive, for every guest will go  and every fire burn low and cabin empty stand.  Forget, forgive, for who may say that New Year's day may ever  come to host or guest again.  Touch hands!  New problems ahead  One hundred years ago 1867 came in with far less noise than  will 1967. In that year in the British Parliament an act was passed  late in March, for the union of the provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick under the name of Canada. Later in the  year the new Canadian parliament was opened in Ottawa, the capital of Confederation by Governor-General Lord Monck. There were  many other events in that year but what concerns us today is the  fact Canada became a Confederation.  One can wonder what will be thoughts of the populace generally when the 100th birthday of Canada becomes a reality. As a nation we have reached a population of 20 millions oi people amdj  along with that growth an accompanying measure of problems and  not all of them simple ones. The major problem, overshadowing all  others is that of Quebec and the path it is travelling.  Today some 27 percent of the entire Canadian population is oif  neither British of French origin. Some 60-odd ethnic groups are  represented among our people. This is evident in the fact that over  180 foreign language publications are produced in Canada in 27  languages.  Eighty percent of the population speak English and slightly  over 30 percent French. This leaves a 10 percent leeway who speak  both languages. One can only wonder what would happen if the 80  percent were as insistent about some of our national affairs as is  the French-Canadian percentage. What would the minority do?  \However, on the threshold of a New Year we must look forward to a society that is creating new problems while the authorities are striving to keep the affairs of the nation under control.  The coming year for the Sunshine Coast will not bring much in  the line of general change. Both municipal councils and the school  board are subject to the control created by tight money and will  have- to trim their sails accordingly.  The public will not be looking for heavy expenditures. Gibsons  is committed to an improvement in its water system. That will be  about enough for it to handle in 1967. Its mill rate may remain  static. Sechelt, minus heavy expenditure, will manage on its present income and some effort might be made to increase the mill  rate but it is expected council will do its best to maintain the status quo. The school board has its problems and will have some  adept stepping to do during the year just to keep up with things ���  what with building restrictions, budget trimming and a growing  school population.  However in spite of prognostications that might arise sounding  a doomsday call for all on the Sunshine Coast and the rest of the  world we shall more than likely conclude the year with wishing all  a Happy New Year for 1968.  Minute message  ^G*S  There remaineth therefore a  rest to the people of God. Heb.  4:9.  During Paul the Apostle's  voyage to Rome, as recorded  in Acts 27:28-29, the ship was  driven up and down by the  fierce winds and waves, until  they had lost their true sense  of position.  Finally, they made a wise decision, they took a fathom check  to find whether they were heading for rocks of destruction or  a haven of rest. Their wise decision  avoided  the  disaster  of  losing many souls.  The storms of trials and  temptations in this life, drive  us fiercely up and down in  life's journey. Therefore we  too, before it is too late, should  take a fathom check of our  spiritual position, to determine  whether we are heading for the  rocks of eternal destruction or  the haven of rest in Jesus  Christ.  Except a man be born again,  he cannot see the kingdom of  God. John 3:3.���Rev. Walter S.  Ackroyd, Pender Harbor Tabernacle.  (By  JACK  DAVIS  Coast-Capilano M.P.)  As a delegate to the recent  . conference of M.P.'s and Congressmen in . Paris I got a  glimpse of the problems confronting NATO (the North Atlantic Treaty Organization).  And they are legion. Heading  the list is the attitude taken  to NATO by General Charles  de Gaulle. Le Grand Charles  has, in effect, decided to lead  France out of NATO. Militarily  speaking, France will now go  it alone. But there is more to  it than that. Canadian, American and British forces are having to leave French soil. Even  the use of French air space is  in the balance.  Think what that means! It  means that the NATO alliance,  geographically speaking, could  be cut  in half.  It means  that  military aircraft taking off  from Holland or West Germany  will have to fly out over the  Atlantic and into the Mediterranean via Gibraltar if they  are to reach allied territory in  Italy,   Greece   or  Turkey.  General de Gaulle, in other  words, is on the verge of chopping NATO's European operations in two. Only if he winks  at the problem of pipelines and  over-flights, "can the NATO alliance continue to function in  a reasonably  efficient  manner.  There are other difficulties  of course. The Supreme Allied  Command headquarters are being moved from Versailles to  Belgium. NATO's own new  muli-million dollar head office  is also being abandoned. Next  -year's meeting of the M.P.'s  and Congressmen from the 14  NATO countries will be in Brus  sels instead.  What does this French defection really mean? Where are  we headed? It means, I think  that Western Europe is really  beginning to assert itself. It  means, also, that de Gaulle, if  he has his way will make Western Europe independent of America in economic as well as  military affairs.  There are those like the West  Germans " who feel that the  Western European, countries,  collectively, are not yet strong  enough to form a second pillar to the North Atlantic Alliance. But the desire of Europeans to be more influential in  world affairs is undoubtedly  there.  France's move has its implications for trade as well. Eventually the U.K. will be permitted to join the European Ee-.  onomic Community (or Common  Market). This it will do along  with the Scandanavian countries  Ireland and Portugal. When this  happens, and Europe becomes  one nation firom a trading point  of view, the idea of an even  broader Atlantic community  may tend to be undermined.  Continentalism, in Western  Europe and America, will assert itself to an even broader  extent and only if many of the  internal economic differences of  the new and expanding European union have been resolved,  will it be possible for us to get  on with the establishment of free  trade on a trans-Atlantic basis  as well.

The fact that the accused wants to be punished, for  the sake of convenience, or  some other reason of his own, is  immaterial. .If, at your trial,  you plead guilty and explain  your motive to the magistrate,  he will not accept the guilty  plea but will order a plea of  not guilty to be entered and the  matter to be tried later.

False confessions and wrong  guilty pleas are very common.  Sometimes a person is paid to  confess to another's crime.  Some people from a perverted  sense of loyalty, attempt to  "take the rap" for another.  Others, like yourself, understandably want to save time and  trouble. Whatever the motive,  our law will not permit a person to be punished until he has  been found guilty.  CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE  MONDAY  &   THURSDAY  1678 Marine  Drive���Gibsons  Phone 886-9843    .

OAK BAY LEADER  The school district 61 money  by-law predicted here for 1967  is just about ready. Indications  are that it will be put to the  ratepayers in the spring.  According to present statutory  requirement the board is limited still to the three-year program which has proved so inadequate in the past.  Isn't it time B.C. did away  with school money by-laws altogether?  B.C. shares with Manitoba  the dubious distinction of being  one of two provinces in Canada  which still requires ratepayers  to approve such money by-laws.  The other provinces have long  since decided to build schools  according to a plan which meets  the need, not for just three  years, but as far ahead as is  practical.  The fiasco of the last money  by-law put by the school district should be fresh in the  minds of all of us. Practically  every project increased substantially in cost over the period the by-law covered, requiring almost endless re-planning  by the board's staff, and in  some cases, dictating the actual  amputation of some needed facility in order to meet the budget.  In the meantime construction  costs have continued to climb.  The additions which were not  made last year must be made  next year, at a staggering increase over the original estimate.  A minor example of what is  taking place (which is far from  minor to parents concerned), is  the nonsensical on-again-off-  again status of the Monterey  kindergarten.  The original promise of a kindergarten was rescinded when  the available money was too  little to do the required job.  Pressure from parents had the  kindergarten reinstated last  year, ��� only to sees it disappear  again this year.  Example of the faulty planning under the present system  is the need to improve toilet facilities at Monterey which were  scheduled under the original  building program but whidh  were deleted from the plan by  j____f______m_m_mm_w^m^m  a money shortage.  The facilities are still required and must be built, but at a  cost far in excess of the original. Meantime parents of kindergarten pupils are faced with organizing the same kind of pressure tactics which proved effective last year.  Isn't it time the school board's  hands were untied so that they  can get on with the job, subject  only to the over-riding authority  of the provincial government  (which, incidentally, doesn't ask  our permission to spend money  on every new road).

The family returned to  Gatehouse-of-Fleet in the Galloway district Scotland, where he  grew up. At the age of 16 he  went to Glasgow and worked on  the Caledonian Railway. In 1910  he came to Vancouver, from  which a few years later, he enlisted and served overseas with  the 16th Canadian Scottish. Soon  after his return, he became a  letter carrier, and remained  with the postal service until his  retirement in 1946 when he moved to a house on the beach at  Roberts Creek.  A member of the United  Church, he served first on the  board of the Community Church  of.. Dunbar Heights, and during  his retirement served as an elder, and as a member of the  committee of stewards and  board of trustees of the Roberts Creek United Church.  He was a member of the Vancouver Athletic Club, and took  an active interest in sports,  playing football and badminton  with exceptional skill. He also  did a considerable amount of  volunteer coaching of young peo-  Hector  McDonald  Hector McDonald who .died  Dec. 16 was born on July 12,  1882, in Dresden, Ont., where  he received his formal education. As a young man he went  to Califoiinia, and logged at  Monticena and at Gray's Harbor.  He was in California at the  time of the San Francisco earthquake. Coming in a windjammer to Vancouver, B.C., he  worked there for a while, logging in the area now known as  Shaughnessy Heights, and hauling coal, sand and gravel.;  In 1906 he came to Gibsons,  and logged near Cassidy's Landing. Owning property at the end  of Mason Road in West Sechelt,  he built a log house there, walking to and from Cassidy's Landing every week-end. Later he  dismantled this log house and  built another on the same property.  He constructed the Wakefield  Inn, and on property of the late  Mrs. Edith Clegg built several  log cabins, including one for  himself in which he lived for  17 years. He then went back  to his house on Mason Rd.,  where he was residing at the  time of his recent illness.  Mr. McDonald had a great  love for and understanding of  horses, and was happiest when  working with his horses, especially in the logging industry.  The funeral service was held  at Gibsons United Church, Rev.  W. M. Cameron officiating. Burial was made in Seaview Cemetery.  Oops! Sorry!  The name of Mrs. Ida Low-  ther who donated to the Central City Mission in lieu of  Christmas cards fund was unfortunately omitted from last  week's published list. It should  have been included.  ANGLICAN  FUND  Contributions to the Anglican  Church of Canada's World Mission Fund, established nearly  three years ago, have reached  a total of $1,828,282. Church  officials expect the $2,000,000  mark will be exceeded by the  end of the year. The special  fund was started in 1964 to as*-  sist churches of the Anglican  Communion in the world's developing nations.  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  ARE BEST SELLERS  pie in sports. In latter years he  was often out in his boat fishing  for salmon.  As a young man he became a  member of the Glasgow Masonic  Lodge, and when he moved to  Vancouver in 1910 he became affiliated with the Acacia Lodge  No. 22, A.F. & AM., of which  he was a member for over 50  years. His lodge officers and  fellow members attended the  funeral service. Mr. Davidson  leaves his wife, -Mary,  funeial service at which Rev.  W. M.

All copies of the first printing of 50,000 volumes have now  been sent direct to subscribers  and retail outlets.  Only 1,500 copies of a specially bound deluxe edition, which  are being delivered by the printers this week, are now available.  L. J. Wallace, chairman of the  provincial Centennial Committee which published the book as  a Centennial project, announced  that a second printing of the  regular edition has been ordered. Copies are expected to be  available soon after the middle  of January.  The deluxe edition, which retails for $10 plus tax, may be obtained only by ordering direct  from the Provincial Centennial  Committee, Parliament Buildings, Victoria. It is bound in a  two-tone buckram cover in rich  brown and beige with the title  stamped on in gold foil.  This special edition is limited  to 1500 numbered copies and  bears the signature imprints of  His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor G. P. Pearkes, Premier  W. A. C. Bennett and Mr. Wallace.  Challenge in Abundance is a  160 page book containing 186 color and black and white photographs and 25,000 words of text  In words and pictures it tells  the story of contemporary British Columbia, its people and its  affairs as they exist after 100  years of development.  Since the book was launched  on November 17 at a luncheon  attended by the Lieutenant-Governor, demand for the book has  exceeded the supply coming off  the presses. Sale of 50,000 copies  within a period of five weeks  is thought to be near a Canadian  record. Normally in the Canadian book trade a book which  sells between 5,000 and 10,000  copies is considered a best seller.

Anyone can wear it, no  matter what shape you're  "leally" in. Truly a "Quickie"  to sew, and as a bonus there are  no fitting problems here. Sew  brilliant in jade chiffon or dainty in pale apple crepe. Touch a  little glitter to throat or hemline.  Sewing chiffon need not be  difficult. Cut out on a flat, non-  shiny surface with very sharp  shears. Make narrow French  seams and bias bindings instead  of facings. Omit interfacing. To  avoid puckering, stitch over tissue paper, which can be ripped  away afterward. Tie thread  ends instead of backstitching.  Where there's a shirt, there's  a tie ... long and skinny, fat  and dotted, flowered or pais-  leyed. Wear with shirts sporting  lars and wide- wide cuffs, in  spring prints or luminous neon  stripes, in voiles and hopsack,  silks and perma-press blends.  THE RULE OF THREE.  Fabric costs $10? Then with  careful style choice and good  dressmaking, you can create a  dress worth $30. One-third of a  garment's value lies in the fabric; one-third in the style and  fashion-rightness for you; one  third in the workmanship. Sewing makes dollars and sense!  Zippers zoom in 'fly-front*  style on pants, slashing diagonally across ski-jackets and  boldly bared on raincoats. Zippers are a status symbol in Paris where really good skirts have  two short zippers instead of the  usuai long one. Paris puts zippers in unusual places; off centre if there are no centre seams.  Always, always, they are stitched in by hand with tiny picking  stitches.  McCall's Patterns, Laces, Remnants & Singer Supplies  D. G.

Etiquette  By IOBERTA LEE  Q. What have you to say  about letters of condolence?  A. All toe often this is a letter that is put off and finally  never written at all, simply because you can' think of what  to say. It is extremely thoughtless to let this happen, for in  time of great. sorrow the fact  that one's friends are standing by can mean so very'much.  It isn't WHAT you say that's  so important ��� it's the fact  that you SAID it.  Q. Are silver crumt) scrapers  still in good use at the dinner  table?  A. Yes, and very practical  if the tablecloth is of plain  damask. If, however, the tablecloth is of lace or embroidery,  a folded napkin does a much  easier and more efficient job  of brushing off the crumbs.  Q. Would it be proper for an  elopement or "runaway" marriage to be announced later by  means of the customary engraved cards?  A. Quite  proper.  Q. Is it all right to use in-  formals in giving thanks for  wedding gifts received?  A. Yes, so long as there is  no greeting that substitutes for  the written words of thanks and  if the informal is conservative  and of good quality paper. It  should be sent, of course, first-  class mail,  sealed.  Q. Is it considered proper or  in good taste to send a male  patient in a hospital a bouquet  of cut flowers?  A. Although not exactly "improper," cut flowers are usually  sent only to women. A growing  plant is the customary gift to  a male patient.  Q. How does one properly eat  a hard-boiled egg at the table  ��� an egg that has been served  in its shell?,  A. Tap it gently with the blade  of your knife, strip off the shell,  then eat the egg with your  fingers^  Q. Is it proper, when setting  the dinner table, to put the butter on one plate and pass this  around to your guests, or to  put it on individual bread-and-  butter plates?  A. This is more a matter of  convenience than propriety.  Usually it is more convenient  to serve the butter on individual  plates than to have your guests  pass it around.  Q. How long properly does a  young woman wear mourning  for her father or mother?  A. Propriety no longer has  anything to clo with this, as it  did in yesteryear. Now it is  entirely a matter of a woman's  feelings and choice. Most people today do not consider it  necessary at all.  Q. Should candy be served to  guests in its box, or in a special dish?  A. It's all right to offer candy  in a box to guests in the living room ��� but at the dinner  table it should be served in a  dish. *  Q. What do you think increases one's popularity as a  conversationalist?  A. The ability to be a good  listener. It takes perseverance  to learn how, especially if you  want to express your own view.  Don't fidget, sneak glimpses at  your watch, or stare into space,  even if you're bored. Look the  speaker in the face and give  him your undivided attention.  It's a nice feeling when someone else does the same for you,  isn't it?

DEAR DORIS  advice from   i  to-let:-3S&* &: \. M: ������?������ : *>: **  Too young  for horses  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  ARE BEST SELLERS  Phone 886-2622  DEAR DORIS ��� I am 19 and  wish to buy a horse. As I am  working and earning my own  living I can meet the financial  responsibilities. I have $500  saved with which to buy it and  '. all necessary equipment. />  The problem is this: Do I  need my parents' permission to  buy a horse? They do not want  me to.  Lover Of Horses  DEAR LOVER ��� At 19 you  are still an infant in the eyes of  the law; so you cannot contract  to buy anything not considered  " a "Necessary." It would take a  wild stretch of the imagination  to thus classify a horse.  This is why a car salesman  always insists that a parent join  in the purchase agreement of a  minor, if your horse dealer  sells to you- without this, he  runs a risk, since he could not  sue in the case of your failing  to pay.  Then again, your parents,  must not allow you to acquire  any "dangerous thing." Unless  you are a past master at horse  handling, it could be a plenty  dangerous thing for you.  Better wait until you are 21.  DEAR DORIS ��� You might  laugh at my problem but it  sure isn't a laughing matter  with me. I nursed both of my  babies and after I quit I lost  my figure completely.  I might be able to get used to  it if it wasn't for my husband  who keeps teasing me about it  and giving out insults. If he  sees another girl with a good  figure he rants and raves and  carries on.  When I tried talking to him  about it he told me I shouldn't  be so touchy.  No Figure  DEAR NO ��� What gives  Faultless Freddie carte blanche  to pull somebody else apart and  then call her touchy?  It's a perverted sense of humor which works at deflating  the other fellow. Your so-called  loving husband needs to open  up his narrow world and start  thinking along more interesting  lines ��� and I don't mean  curves!  There are padded bras, which  are fashions which help the figure. If you are underweight you  can build up your diet. But  most of all, the man who is  supposed to care about you  needs to improve his conversation.  DEAR DORIS ��� About borrowed books which are not returned, I have a suggestion. I  keep a list of books loaned,  time, name and address of borrower. And, on the first page of  each book I place the following:  This   book   I   lend   with  pleasure,  Pray    read   it   at   your  leisure!  I   only   ask,   my   trusted  friend,  That you'll return it at the  end,  For   ALL   my   books   I  treasure!  This works very well indeed.  Bookish  DEAR BOOKISH ��� Good for  you. I'm glad to hear it works.  It does seem a pity not to share  a favorite book, but one hesitates when there is high likelihood of its never returning.  DEAR DORIS ��� Please help  me, a mother of a teen-age boy  who received his grade 13, and  has a good job but boards at  home. What amount of money  should I expect from him?  He has all the privileges of  our humble home and I wash  and iron for him. We are farmers who are not financially well  off. Kindly answer this so that  both my son and I will be better aware what is done in other  homes.  A mother who wants to play  fair  DEAR MOTHER ��� We cannot set down an arbitrary  amount. What he pays depends  on (1) what he earns; (2) what  he needs, including what entertaining he does; and (3) what it  costs you to maintain your  home and table.  The cost of living differs depending on whether you live in  town or. country, in the western  or eastern or northern part of  Canada. I suggest you find out  what you are paying for everything (not omitting rent or taxes), then divide this by number  in family; figure out his share  and add an amount to cover,  realistically, the appreciable  service given in washing and  ironing and cleaning for him.  You won't be unfair. Arrive  at your final board amount in  consultation with your son and  his father.  Toronto. Telegram News Service  By LYNN CARTER  Q.   Will   you   please   suggest  some home treatment that will  aid   in   subduing   or   whitening  "little scars left on my face by  acne or pimples?  A. Best is a consultation with  a dermatologist. But if you wish,  you can try this: Mix one ounce  each of alum and lemon juice  with one pint of rose water,  shake well, and apply regularly  to the affected skin with absorbent cotton.  Q. What are some general  suggestions regarding the use of  lipstick?  A. Since lipstick is the brightest spot of color on your face  choose it with care. Never try  to alter the shape of your mouth  too drastically with it. Use a  lipstick brush for most artistic  and becoming effects, and follow the natural outline of the  lips. Apply lipstick, blot with  tissues, then reapply for long-  lasting results. Or, after the  first application of lipstick, dust  with a little face powder, then  add more lipstick.  Q. How can I add more body  to my mascara, without of  courses causing it to bead?  A. Try moistening your mascara with eye lotion or skin  freshener, instead of the usual  plain water.  Q. How can I, after shampooing my hair, soften it and  cut any soapy film?  A. With a vinegar rinse . . .  about four tablesoons of vinegar to three glasses of water  . . . then rinse this well out.  Q. What is a good exercise  for development of bust, shoulders, and arms?  A. Standing erect, legs together, arms extended sideways  at shoulder level, swing your  arms across your body, right  arm over left arm, back tp  original position, then swing  them across the body again,  this time with left arm over  the right arm. Keep this up  quickly and vigorously, and in  good rhythm.  Q. What is a good formula  for an oatmeal facial mask or  pack?  A. Mix into a pasty consistency three ounces of oatmeal,  the juice of a lemon, and some  witch hazel. Apply to face and  throat, leave on for about 30  minutes or longer, then rinse  off.  Q. What is a corrective and  soothing treatment for dry,  cracked lips?  A. Apply a mixture of */_-  ounce each of lanolin and either  glycerin   or  honey.  Q. How can I remove egg  stains from an unwashable  dress?  A. After the stain has dried,  scrape off as much of the egg  as you can with a dull knife,  then work on the remains with  some cleaning fluid.  Q. How can I accentuate my  eyebrows, which are practically  invisible?  A. You might try using two  eyebrow pencils, one brown and  the other black. First, give your  brows some short, soft strokes  with the brown pencil, then follow with about a third as many  strokes with the black. If this  is performed carefully and deftly, you should emerge with a  nice,   natural-looking   browline.  Q. My fingernails are very  brittle, cracking and splitting  much too much. What can I do  about this?  A. This sort of trouble quite  often is due to over-frequent  applications of polish and polish  remover. When the nails chip  excessively, remove the polish,  treat the nails with some petroleum jelly and hand lotion,  refrain from the use of polish  for several days, and then sit  back and watch your nails recover.  PLAN   No. 31250  FLOOR AREA: 1250ia.tr.  .i_-o".  A rear view home  Plan 31250 (copyright 117093)  Once again the problem of  creating a rear view home with  an attractive front appearance  is overcome with droit touches  by the designer.  This is an L shaped bouse,  with the living/dining and one  bedroom at the rear, kitchen  and two bedrooms on the front.  To counteract the usual plainness found in such designs, the  designers have used such adroit  touches as vertical siding on the  gable of the bedroom wing, contrasting with the horizontal siding on the rest of the house,  shutters at the windows, and  cedar shakes or shingles on the  roof.  The floor arrangement of this  house eliminates cross traffic  through the rooms. The kitchen  is efficiently planned with U  shaped kitchen arrangement of  cabinets, and is accessible from  the carport.  An open wall is a feature of  the basement stairs in the foyer  while the bathroom features a  large   vanity  and  master bed  room has plumbing "en suite."  The living room is large, with  an interesting fireplace located  on the inside wall, leaving plenty of wall space for furniture  arrangement.  A sundeck across the back of  the house is accessible from the  living room through. sliding  glass doors.  Built on a lot that slopes to  the rear, the house is level with  the street at the front, but with  full depth at the back so that  the recreation room under the  living room can be open to a  patio under the deck.  Warm contemporary styling  makes this a plan that should  appeal to home owners. It is designed to the standards of the  National Building Code of Canada, for N.H.A. or conventional mortgaging, as desired. Blue  prints may be obtained from the  Building Centre (B.C.)

JOLLY ROGER  SECRET COVE  11 miles West of Sechelt  Phone 885-9998  To almost everyone, New  Year's has a particular meaning or a memory ... of hope,  expectation, regret or a deep  sense of thankfulness.  It is in this last category that  Sven Gisvold and his wife Betty find themselves. For it was  in New Year's day, 1940, Sven,  a Norwegian, patriot, soldier,  underground saboteur and paratrooper was arrested in his  home at Trondheim by the ges-  tapo.  Even to this day the true  story of Norway's gallant but  hopeless resistance to the Nazi  invaders, remains obscure. Little is known of the desperate  struggle carried on by sturdy  Norsemen like Sven, but it is to  these men of the Viking breed,  soldiers arid civilians of Norway  goes the; credit for carrying on  the fierce and unrelenting struggle against overwhelming odds  and quisling betrayal.  Fighting every foot of the way  from central Norway to Narvik  in the north, first as soldiers  and after the capitulation, following King Olaf's removal to  England on a British destroyer,  the real deadly business.of,war-  _ happv  k?EAR!  To our old friends  and new . . . may 1967  bring you much  health and happiness  KEN GODDARD���  Your Rockgas Propane man in  the Gibsons area  ROCKGAS PROPANE LTD.  GIBSONS ��� Ph. 886-2185  MR. and MRS. SVEN GISVOLD  fare and continued harassment  of the conquerors began.  Sven, as leader of one of the  many underground units, led  his men and women too in dynamiting and setting fire to railway centres, bridges, army barracks, hydro, phone and radio  installations, reporting enemy  dispositions and assisting thousands of young Norwegians to esr  cape to England and fight another day.  And so, on that New Year's  day in 1940, Sven, betrayed by  an old school friend, a German-  born quisling was arrested and  thrown into a narrow cell at  the gestapo headquarters. His  companion was a well known  Norwegian actor, arrested for  refusing to entertain the Germans. As there was only a single cot in the cell, the two whil-  ed away the time playing chess,  the winner was given the privilege of sleeping on the cot.  . In spite of constant interrogar  tion by the gestapo, Sven bided  his time until the following May,  then in company with several  other fugitives, they broke out  and headed for the west coast.  Arriving at the port of Aali-  sund, they discovered the presence of a flotilla of German U-  boats in the harbor and a recently converted yacht, now a  patrol boat just out of dry dock  for its refitting.  The patrol boat was their objective. Scouting around the  Grand Hotel where the German  high command maintained headquarters, Sven with great unconcern, lifted the Admiral's hat  and dress dirk off the hook outside the dining room and jamming on the headpiece at a rakish angle, headed for the harbor with his two companions  close at his heels. They soon  disposed of the guard, took  command of the patrol boat and  headed out into the murk of the  North Sea with a German destroyer in close pursuit.  Fortunately the fog thickened  and setting course for the Shet-  lands, succeeded in landing on  one of the lesser islands. A British naval patrol took them in  charge  and so  important  was  the information regarding the  presence of a German flotilla  in Aalisund, Sven was flown  to London for interrogation. A  commission in the Commandos  followed, where he operated  with the British and Scottish  forces to the end of the war  making many jumps into enemy  held territory in France, Belgium and Holland, as well as his  own country.  When an armistice was declared, Sven was actively engaged  in purging the country of the  invaders. Tlie fact that he was  hobbling around on crutches  with two broken ankles sustained in a jump just prior to the  cease fire, did not prevent him  from becoming quartermaster  general in charge of all food  stuffs and supplies.  One of the highlights of this  job was taking over and rationing the German high command's  supplies of choice French wines  ��� and brandy, filched from the invader countries - and stored in  vast underground cellars. Sven  wouldn't comment on the many  thousands of litres of German  liquid loot he doled out to the  liberating force, but he admitted  there was enough to provide  every soldier, sailor and airman in Norway with a generous supply of champagne, wines  and brandy for the next several  months!  Following the war, the family  coal and fuel business wrecked  beyond recovery by the Nazis,  Sven hopefully set in to manufacture electric stoves but the  shortage of materials and hampering government regulations,  caused him and his wife Betty,  a member of the British forces  whom he had met in Scotland,  to seek in 1953, a new life in  Canada, first in New Westminster and then, in search of a  more suitable climate, the Gis-  volds came to Gibsons three  years ago.  And so this New Year, Sven  and Betiy find they have much  for which to be thankful ��� a  place in which to live in peace  after seeing most of the world.  "We're lucky to be here in  Gibsons ��� 1940 sure seems a  long way off from 1967."  Hydro children have party  The Sechelt BjC. Hydro and  Power Authority held their annual employee children's Christmas party on Saturday, Dec. 10  at the St. Hilda's Hall.  The party got off to a good  start by having seven profes-  . sional young entertainers from  Vancouver perform for the  group. They were under the direction and accompanied on the  piano by Geneva Calangis, who  is the sister of Helen Sinclair.  The program, m.c.'d by Mr. F.  H. Norminton, consisted of a  variety of songs and dances performed by the three Webb Sisters, Pam and Kenny Burtnick,  Dianne Szigety and Valerie Eas-  ton. The 45iminute program was  thoroughly  enjoyed.  Two comedy films were shown  after the variety show, followed  by little Johnny ^Branca who  played a couple of Christmas  tunes on his accordion. Carol  singing was led by Eric Hensch  who also sang Joy to the World  as a solo.  The highlight of the afternoon  for the children was the arrival  of Santa Claus who presented  them all with a gift, candy and  oranges. Little Jimmie Smith  won the huge Panda that was  given as a draw prize and Dick  Branca, Bill Billingsley and Tors  Marsnas won the other three  draw prizes. In attendance were  28 adults and 22 children. Refreshments   were   later  served  James Kenneth Leatherdale,  who died Dec. 21, was born in  1891 in Vancouver, where he received his formal education.  During the First World War he  went overseas with the 102nd  Battalion, and for outstanding  service was honored by King  Alfred of Belgium.  Upon his return to civilian  life, he joined the Vancouver  Police force, of which ,his father, Dan Leatherdale, was  deputy. chief. He himself rose to  the rank of inspector, having  charge of a shift of 120 men.  Being a lover of nature, he en-'  joyed gardening, especially in  the natural setting as at Roberts  Creek, where he bought property in- 1925. He spent his sum-~  mers in Roberts Creek until  his retirement in 1951 when he  moved there to live.  His church affiliation was  with the Presbyterian and Baptist churches Besides his wife  Fanny, he leaves two brothers,  Donald of Vancouver and Russell of Coquitlam.  The funeral service was held  Sat., Dec. 24 at Harvey Funeral Home Family Chapel with  Rev. W. M. Cameron officiating.  Cremation followed.
