Array WALT DISNEY'S  CINDERELLA  Technicolor  COMING SOON  TO A THEATRE  NEAR YOU  Provincial Library,  Victoriaf B. C��  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST ��� Ph.  886-2622  Published in Gibsons, B.C.  Volume 20,  Number 45, December 22, 1966. 7c per copy  tAH  Public     Davis outlines new  own park  developments  Final act of Gibsons municipal council respecting the  change of ownership of Kihsmen'  park from the Anglican synod of  New Westminster to the village  of Gibsons occurred at Tuesday  night's meeting. Council completed its function by moving  that the deed covering the turnover to the village be signed by  the  proper  municipal  officials.  Clerk Charles Gooding pointed out that the deed presented  council omitted the word free,  as regards the use of the park  for recreational purposes. It  was contended that the word  free was an undue limitation on  the use of the park for money  raising purposes.  Council has been working on  the takeover of Kinsmen Park  far some time and during *his  year contact with the synod office was made with the result  that council and the synod came  closer together in arriving at" a  decision.  Councillor Sam Fladager reported a break in the water  main near the Pilling home on  Gower Point Rd. and S. Fletcher created quite a loss' of  water before it was located. He  was of the opinion a flaw in  the pipe caused the breakage.  As  it was  Councillor  Flada-  ger's last session as a;member  of council he thanked all memV ..  'bers for theirvc6-operatibh. Jle >v  enjoyed being; on  coumeil^aiidt^  thought it was a gb0d' experi-'  ence. There have been ups and  downs, he said but everything  worked out OK.  Good Christmas, the traditional Holiday Greeting of the Sliamon Tribe, who with the Coast Salish,  echoed these words from their lonely camps from  generation to generation.  It is in this same universal spirit of good fellowship we, at the Coast News, wish our many  friends and subscribers���  A Good Christmas to All  (By  JACK  DAVIS  Coast-Capilano M.P.)  Canada's  senior  citizens  will  be getting a New Year's present  from     the    federal    taxpayer.  Nearly  a  million of them will  have their basic income raised  ;   to $105 a month. Their number,  furthermore,   will   rise   as   the  ..   age for Old Age Security is low-  '   ered from 68 to 65.  V     The   question  is   often   asked  '���  why $105 is not made available  I: to everyone. The answer is that  ������ such  an  income  would  double  } the impact on the average Can-  ;. adian   taxpayer.   Ottawa's   new  ^income supplement will cost him  '*-.' another $3 a month. A flat rate  1 of $105 for everyone would cost  him at least $5 a month.  In order to qualify for this  additional income our senior citizens will have to fill out an  application form. They will have  to show what their income is.  However capital items will not  be taken into account. You will  not have to show how much you  have in the bank, whether you  own a, home, or whether your  relatives contribute to your support.  Money drawn from savings,  or from the sale of a home are  not considered as income. Neither are disability payments or  social assistance. They are separate and above the $105 basic  minimum recognized by Ottawa.  Let us be clear on one thing.  There is no means  test in the  MUSIC!  There shall be music for patients of St. Mary's Hospital  during the week before Christmas.  On Monday evening, 18 girls  of the Indian School under the  direction of Sister Noella entertained the patients in a delightful arrangement of traditional music of the season.  Tuesday at 7 p.m., Carol-  lers from the Port Mellon Community Church, led by Mrs.  Sherman brightened the wards  with the Story of Christmas in  song.  On Christmas Eve the Anglican Young People are taking  :ime out from their festivities  :o sing carols for St. Mary's  shut-ins.   ���  A warning  Drinkers who want to be car.  (drivers are warned that there  'will be ROMP road patrols making checks at unexpected places  during the holiday weekends.  Local police will be augmented  by patrols from outside points  and a close check will be maintained, RCMP report.     .  More visitations!  (By KEENSMELL) y  Dear president of One Visited Me  You and Madge were lucky ��� we had three!  Our basement not finished was dark and dinky  :   'Twas a haven for Ugh, Phew and Stinky.  iNew arrivals to Roberts Creek are we,  'Nature lovers who wouldn't harm a flea,  But Stinky.ahdI family were to leave in disgrace  ���:��������� yVia Ha^a%eart-Trap ��� in the basement ^e'dplaced. ;���  tCame darkness of night ami upstairs we brave folk  Heard the trap being tripped���- That's one I hope  Said we dapping our hands in unrefined glee.  So we put on the light and to the basement dashed we. .-'.*  We eased the door opened to our surprise  The trap had been tripped ��� but nothing inside.  Those stinkers had been there and my, what a smell.  Any takers for the trap ��� We wish you well.  Roads get roasting  ���The teacher said I couldn't'  come back until I bring a  note from my Psychiatrist.;  Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce executive  meeting Monday night mulled  over roads, chamber membership, an increase in chamber  fees, a sports track and an air  service from Gibsons to Vancouver.  The meeting, held in the Elementary school with Ron Haig,  president, in the chair, tossed  the present condition of roads  around for a while and decided  to send a strong letter asking  for an early reply from Highways Minister ��� Gaglardi, Mrs.  Isabel Dawson, minister without  portfolio and the district engineer. The letter will point out  that heavy traffic from the ferry at Langdale through to the  Jervis Inlet ferry is doing considerable damage to the highway. Damage is being caused to  cars. It was admitted that as  the result of a prolonged rainy  spell roads were bound to get  into a bad shape. But it was  argued complaints have been  going to Victoria over road conditions so many times, particularly over the bridge at Granthams.  Argument ensued over the fact  that the area had paid taxes  over the last ten years without  getting much back in return and  it was time the district received  the attention the traffic stream  deserved. Unless something was  done before summer traffic  starts the highway would be in  terrible shape next summer.  The letter to the minister and  others would insist on an early  reply.  On memberships, Frank Hay,  chairman of that committee, reported greater interest was being shown in chamber work and  that for next year several new  members had been lined up. The  question of raising membership  fees was left for the general  meeting in January to consider.  The executive recommended  membership rates be $7.50 per  individual, $10 a couple, also $15  and $30 for businesses according to size.  Phil Lawrence, area recreation director, in outlining the  work done on the Safety Week  posters in the schools, said that  there were 650 entries, making  the response one of the best so  far. He expected there would  be an arts and crafts leadership  training course under way after  the turn of the year.  Some members asked what  was happening as regards a  sports track for the area. It  was expected that there would  be a good track operating at Elphinstone Secondary school.  Menibers wondered just how  the school track stood at this  time.  A letter from A. B. Campbell  c." r'-oe A'rvvays, Sechelt, asked  fc: :ha..-.bir support in his ap-  p'. .a'.icn icr an irregular specif-  '..: a'r service from Gibsons to  Vancouver starting with a weekend service. The letter asked for  information concerning tourist  information and usable statistics on travel possibilities.  The January meeting at which  it is expected close to 50 persons will attend will be held at  Danny's Dining Room on the  third Monday in the month.  Siuita among his friends  SANTA CLAUS arrived in Gibsons Saturday afternoon and received his young guests at Sunnycrest Plaza, the Co-op Store and Ken's  Lucky Dollar store in Gibsons. He is shown above mounting steps  to his I & S truck domain for the trip.  The all-agig and all-agog 650 youngsters who crowded around  him at the three points were pleased to see the gentleman from  the North Pole, who, aided by an ROMP escort with Cpl. Norman  Kenny supervising, received numerous letters mainly from little  girls who wanted him to take Ms time and look over their Christmas requirements. After he dispensed his goodies he and the welcoming party refreshed themselves at the Welcome Cafe.  Medals for 34 pioneers      be a pool booster  old fashioned sense of the word.  The recipient is taken at his  word. He or she will fill out an  income tax form. Checks will  be made by the Department of  National Revenue in the same  way it looks over the affairs of  Canadian taxpayers in general.  But there will be no snooping,  no prying, no demeaning questions.  Admitterly this" program is an  innovation. It applies a contemporary technique to what, in the  past, was an almost insoluable  problem ��� the maintenance of  the incomes of hundreds of  thousands of elderly Canadians  without prying unnecessarily  into their private affairs.  While the federal government  is now going to ensure that no  one in receipt of Old Age Assistance will have an overall income of less than $105, Ottawa  has been careful not to blunt  their incentive to work. If they  work, their pension supplement  will be reduced. However, it will  only be reduced $1 for every  additional $2 the old age pensioner earns as a result of working for someone else.  If  an  old  age. security repi-  pient has a small private pension of $40 a month as his only  income other than old age security,   the   maximum   supplement of $30 is reduced by one  half of the $40 a month, leaving  ^.a-partial^supplement ��� of $10. In  : this    example    the    pensioner  j would have a  total income of  ; $125 a month, consisting of. the  $75 basic (or flat rate) pension,  a  $10  income  supplement  and.  $40 from the private pension-'  There is a ceiling of course".  No one will get a supplementary pension, however small, if  he has a total income of more  than $135 a month. The maximum for married couples is $270^  a month. Beyond that old age-  assistance is limited to $75 a.  month, supplementary payments -  having been ruled out by the income which they will be receiving from other sources.  Thirty-four   pioneers   on   the  Sunshine Coast from Port Mellon to Jervis Inlet will receive  ���medals ��� following approval by  the British Columbia Centennial  committee. These medals will  be presented at functions arranged by local Centennial committees in the Canadian Centennial year of 1967.  Here is the list by districts: 13  in rural Gibsons area; one in  Gibsons village; one at Pender  Harbour; seven at Roberts  Creek; 11 at Sechelt and one at  Wilson Creek.  4 breakins  Four breakins in Gibsons Saturday night, reported by the  RCMP netted the culprits up to  $200 in cash. Three of the burgled places netted nothing but  the fourth place, the home of  E.. D. Davies, South Fletcher  road, resulted in the finding of  money.  Peninsula Plumbing office on  the highway at Pratt Road and  the apartment in the rear occupied by Mr. and Mrs. L. Love-  se, v/e.x ransacked but nothing  reported taken. The unoccupied  home of Mrs. Ellen Chamberlin  on South Fletcher road was also  reatxhed but nothing was re-  po-ted removed. Investigation is  still proceeding by RCMP.  The provincial Centennial com  mittee had expected more applications. "I feel many who are  qualified have not applied," L.  J. Wallace, general chairman of  the rovincial committee said.  "There will be disappointed pioneers when presentation ceremonies are held next year. This  is unfortunate but unavoidable."  Applications closed Nov. 19.  Local committees have now received order forms for medals,  which will be supplied by the  provincial committee.  The medal will be awarded to  persons born in Canada or a  resident of Canada prior to Jan.  1, 18S2, who are now residents  oi' British Columbia.

Centennial  in school  On Thursday, Dec. 15, Gibsons Elementary school pupils  from grades one to seven assembled for a special British  Columbia Centennial program  as a wind-up to the month-long  campaign to raise funds for the  Centennial 100 project, a B.C.  wide project for all of the public schools.  Pupil narrators read from a  script which highlighted the history of the province and all joined in singing songs of early explorers. The school choir under  direction of Mrs. M. Neilson led  in the singing.  Adding something new to an  assembly program were illustrations from magazines and  books which were projected on  a new largo-size screen during  the spoken narrative.  Mr. D. McKee introduced the  program with an explanation of  the purpose of the Centennial  100 project. The assembly also  provided the opportunity for the  presentation of prizes for the dis  trict wide safety poster by Phil  Lawrence, area director oi recreation to Ian Finlayson, grade  four and Ted Rhodes, grade one.

Unity in the Community gets things done  A song of courage  Bethelhem ��� a name often heard at this season ��� conjures up  for most of us quiet beauty under a deep star-studded sky. In reality, the ancient town is more like a fortress than the setting for an  idyll. High on a plateau, windswipt and austere, stands the Church  of the Nativity in whose cave-grotto, tradition says Christ was born.  The church above it is very old. It dates back to Constantine in  330 A.ID. The present door starkly simple and very low, was so  built in the time of the Crusades to keep rampaging horsemen from  riding in to massacre the worshippers. It is a grim reminder that  Saracen and Christian let blood here.  Though these realities of geography and history shatter the  tranquil image of the Christmas town, they have a sustaining quality in these days of violence and subconscious fear of the future. It  is heartening to remember that the thrilling song "Peace on earth  to men of good will," rang out first in an occupied country at the  tension-filled time of a hated census taking.  The angel strains were not heralds of Utopia-ythey were a,  thrust of light into darkness, and He whose birth we celebrate,  found the road from Bethlehem to Calvary both short and bitter.  Yet the voices sang truly.  Wise and privileged men have found in the Babe their purpose  and their peace. Poor and oppressed men have found in Him their  hope. Both have changed history. A Woodrow Wilson and a Ham-  merskjold have set our feet, however falteringly, on the road to  world government.  May the Christmas song put courage in us all.  y  f  A year-round gift!  Many churches still celebrate White Gift -Sunday but. it has become a presentation of canned goods and other.gifts from parents',  well-stocked shelves. It all is turned over |��4^e anonymous indi-y  vidua! or organization to distribute. No mention will" b-^made ofH  service, or personal involvement.  That's Santa's secret! He doesn't send his gnomes to deliver  the gifts. He comes himself. He is personally involved. With each  gift there is the.rosy smile, the loving concern. That's why we  should bring the spirit of Santa Claus back into Christmas.  The three wise men made history when they presented gifts in  Bethlehem, but if we are going to make history, we will have to  present more than money or perfume. The world is in desperate  need of people who will enter the lives of the lonely, giving their  time, as well as their treasure.       ,  Such a gift could be a year-round concern of a modern Saint  Nicholas, not just an ^annual easing of the conscience by giving  away something we can do without.  (By  JACK  DAVIS  Coast-Capilano M.P.)  You are going to hear more  about mineral rights, mineral  rights out under the sea I mean;  offshore mineral rights as they  are called. There is a fight on  and it is a fight that is only beginning. Canada as a nation  may have wrested our offshore  mineral rights from other nations, but now the provinces are  trying to get into the act.  Eight of them ��� the eight  of them that border, in any way,  on salt water ��� all want a slice.  They want a slice of our Continental shelf. And most of them  do not want Canada, as a nation,  to have any say in the development of these offshore mineral  rights whatsoever.  Why all the interest now?  Well, first the United States  found oil ��� lots of oil ��� offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.  Then there was the rush to the  North Sea. Holland has. found  so much gas that it is already  self-sufficient in this important  fuel. And the United Kingdom, if  recent drilling results are any  indication, will soon be displacing coal from many of its ancient applications.  With drilling rigs being float--  ed out into the North Sea, some-.  one had to decide where each,,  country's rights began and end-'  ed.  With  West  Germany,  Denmark, Sweden and Norway also  beginning to look for minerals  out under the North Sea a set  of offshore boundary lines was  needed at an early date. So an  international    convention    was  called. Before its work was over  it heard from nearly all of the  maritime nations of the world.  They agreed upon a set of prin  ciples which must now be observed the world over.  Now we have rules which all  maritime nations, including Can  ada, must live with. Their import,   for  this  country,  is  tremendous.  Canadians, beginning  in 1962, have had the undisputed  right to explore and develop the  sea bed off our shores. We have  exclusive  rights  to our Contin>-  ental Shelf. But our rights do  not end there. We have exclusive rights to all1 the minerals  under   the   sea   floor   reaching  half way across the Atlantic and  Pacific Oceans. We have exclusive rights under the sea right  up to the North Pole as well.  .... Within   these   limits   Canada  and Canada alone, can look for  oil or dredge up other mineral  values.   Time   and   technology  permitting this gives us an undersea empire larger than the  .land mass of Canada itself.  Quietly we have gained an  empire. But the noisier imperialists among us are only now  waking up to this fact. Premier  Johnson of Quebec is laying  , claim to half of Hudson's Bay,  most of the Gulf of St. Lawrence  and part of the Grand Banks.  Premier Stanfield of Nova Scotia is also reaching out into the  Atlantic. Premier Bennett, mean  while, has passed an Order in  Council laying claim to the Continental Shelf on the Pacific,  Quebec's and Nova Scotia's  claims, like B.C.'s, are essentially historical in nature. Their  premiers are claiming the provinces brought their offshore  mineral rights into Confederation with them. If they did (and  this is debatable) then they  brought in their rights to the 3-  mile limit. This was the limit  then recognized for centuries in  international law. '  ��  ''""lO ��� ���  Minute message  He gave His only-begotten  Son. ��� John 3:16.  That word gave has in it the  force of gave up. As an old commentator says, God not only  gave His Son to the world, but  for it. That meant the birth in  the cattle shed in Bethlehem,  the struggle with poverty in  Nazareth, the carpenter's bench,  the being "tempted in all points  like as we are," the suffering of  reproach and the being "acquainted with grief," the shame  and the spitting, the purple robe  and the crown of thorns, the iron  spikes and the deadly spear,  the awful darkness and the  "tasting of death."  There is tremendous meaning  in Paul's fords: "He spared not  His own Son."  Was ever a gift like the Saviour given? He leaves the bosom of the eternal Father, and  comes to the bosom of an earthly mother. The Son of God becomes the Son of Mary. The  Infinite becomes an infant. He  who holds the world in His arms  is held up in the arms of a frail  woman. He whose garment is  space, whose house is the universe, whose chariots are the  clouds, and whose diadems are  the stars, is wrapped in swaddling bands and laid in a manger.  He leaves the palace beautiful  of heaven, for the stable, and  the work bench, and having not  where to lay His head. He lays  aside His celestial insignia, for  the peasant dress and the purple robe. He puts aside His sceptre of universal sovereignty, for  the reed of mock royalty in Pilate's hall. He leaves the throne  of heaven for the Cross outside  the city wall. He who is the  Prince of Life bows his head in  death. He who is without sin becomes the sinbearer. The Christ  of God becomes the Crucified.  He who is the Father's delight  becomes God-forsaken. He who  lit the stars lies in the dust. He  comes, He toils, He hungers and  thirsts, He weeps, He suffers,  He bleeds and dies ��� for God  so loved the world that He gave  up   His   only-begotten   Son.  A pardon bought with blood  with blood divine With blood  divine of Him I made my foe  My species up in arms not one  exempt! Yet for the foulest of  the foul He dies, As is our race  were held of highest rank, And  Godhead dearer as more kind  to man! Oh, what a scale of  miracles is here! Its lowest  round high planted in the skies;  Its towering summet lost beyond  the thought Of man  or angel.  ���S. Cassells, Sunshine Coast  Gospel Church.  COPYRIGHT APPLIED FOR  We welcome written questions on legal points from  readers. If possible they  will be answered in this  column. Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c^o this newspaper.  A number of our readers have  foreclosure problems. Either a  mortgage or an agreement for  sale may result in a,foreclosure. We realize that both these  documents always contain clauses giving the right to take- possession of the land in the event  of payments falling in arrears.  Despite these impressive sounding clauses, this cannot be done.  When payment under a mortgage (and in this article I will  use the term to include an  agreement for sale) are not  made on the due date it is necessary to sue and apply to the  court for a first foreclosure order. The judge will then set a  redemption period during which  the buyer or mortgagor (one  who mortgages his land) may  pay the amount owing plus all  interest, costs, expenses, etc.  The length of this period varies according to the circumstanc  er such as whether the land is  improved or not, and also whether it contains a dwelling house  or is commercial property, and  whether the property has been  abandoned or hot. Generally  speaking, the redemption period  is six months for a mortgage  and three months for an agreement for sale.  At the end of this period the  seller or mortgagee (one who  advances money on the security  of a mortgage, for example, a  mortgage company)  applies  to  P O INT  OF LAW  the court for a second foreclos-,  ure order. The buyer or mortgagor may appear and request  a further period of redemption  and this may be granted depending on what portion of the purchase price or mortgage monies  have been paid and what effort  the buyer or mortgagor has  made to pay the debt. If the  buyer or mortgagor cannot pay  ��� the second order will be grant  ed and the land reverts to the  seller or mortgagee.  Alternatively, the seller or  mortgagee may sue the buyer  or mortgagor on the promise to  pay. clause contained in the  mortgage. In this case, the party suing obtains a judgment of  the court for payment of a sum  of money. A seller or mortgagee  cannot sue on the payment  clause as well as foreclose. He  must choose which remedy it is  best to adopt.  A second mortgagee may be  squeezed out. His remedy is to  pay the first mortgagee and fore  close or apply to the court for  an order for sale. If the property is ordered sold, the first mortgagee is paid first, then the  second mortgagee and any balance goes to the mortgagor.  No amount of wrangling will  resolve this dispute. So Ottawa  is taking the easy way out. It  is referring this matter to the  Supreme Court of Canada. And,  only after the Supreme Court  has made its ruling, will Prime  Minister Pearson sit down with  the provinces to decide how best  we can administer a part, at  least, of this vast new underwater empire of ours.

I was particularly humbled by  the results in the light of the  extremely competent candidates  with whom I had the privilege  of running.  Firstly, I cannot convey  enough appreciation to the many  friends and associates who work  ed with and supported me during the campaign.  Secondly, and most important,  I wa::t to thank ail oi' those who  voted for me. I will work very  hard to merit your confidence  and concentrate on maintaining  your continued support throughout the two years of my office.  I cannot, however, promise to  make everyone happy. I cannot  even promise to make everyone  who voted for me happy. But I  do promise to do my best, and  to always keep the best interests bf the entire village in mind  Once again, thank you all.  Ken Goddard.  Editor: For some time past  we have had elections galore.  So much so that especially  where changes in administration  have taken place the voter will  be looking for improvement. Nowhere more so than in this riding.  We were chastised, chided and  ridiculed for not having better  sense than supporting an opposition member in the house for  14 years. However the extraordinary campaign work of Mrs.  Isabel Dawson between the last  two provincial elections won  her the honor of not only being  elected, but a seat in the cabinet.  Having travelled over the  whole riding our member will  probably be more familiar than  anyone .with things deliberately  neglected. Our dynamic premier can no longer neglect'to  give the riding attention now  that we have a member in the  The military look is beloved  by Dior, St. Laurent, Oardin and  Fabiani, endorsed by epaulettes,  battle-blouses, top stitching and  brass buttons.

Of necessity there are oodles  of things that need attention.  Here a short distance on either  side of Gibsons there are two  things that not only affect Gib-  sonites but everyone travelling  to and from the ferries to Vancouver. I refer to what passes  for a bridge near Granthams  and on the other side the semicircular roadway. Neither of  these projects involves any engineering difficulties, but simply the will to do.  Furthermore, we cannot expect a ferry system that could  handily cope with the tremendous flow of traffic on holiday  weekends. Hence I suggest to  our member that she press for  an outlet to Squamish. In this  way the car owners though having to travel extra mileage  would be able to get to Vancouver and wayside points without  agonising delay. ��� Dave Rees.

This positive gesture makes the  pool possible and gives heart to  those working for it.  The pool is the outcome of  two years' consideration of various ideas. After choosing what  would be a desirable addition  to the district's facilities and attractions, feasibility of the project had to be considered.  A 30 x 60 foot pool seemed  most reasonable to tackle. The  price of pools goes up at a  frightening rate as you extend  them. For instance a 40 x 80  foot pool costs just twice as  much as the 30 x 60 foot which  holds 90 children at a time.  With the co-operation of the  School Board, the site was assured and many problems minimized. To grease the ways, two  of our local contractors offered  $100 equipment time each for  excavating.  The water required for the  pool seems to concern some but  the water demand is not excessive, with the water filtered,  chlorinated and recirculated.  There is really no reason why  the pool cannot be easily managed. Private ones are no rarity these days. We just have to  boost it.  Of the many desirable means  we might provide for recreation,  a swimming pool is unique. Ability to swim gives us mastery of  another element. It allows us to  safely enjoy many other pursuits. It can be a year round  sport for an all round body  builder, when we can manage a  cover.  We think the community is on  to a good thing. Your bank managers think so too and will gladly accept your donations to the  fund. We are looking for your  support, so don't be afraid to  get your feet wet. ��� Jack Warn  Construction Committee chairman.  Mt.

K >'*'���'.-V��,  $*?;$$*  What's sex "all about?  DEAR DORIS ��� I am 14 and  have not been told a thing  about sex. My mother says she  was never told anything so she  doesn't see why she should tell  me anything. My mother is also  very mean to me and is always  telling Daddy lies about things  I do.  She won't let me go to a  dance because she is afraid X  will get into trouble. Daddy is  very understanding about the  whole thing and he is trying to  help me, but I can't do anything.  If you print this in the paper  I would be happy because my  mother might read it and realize what she is doing.  Abused  DEAR ABUSED ��� What a  neat piece of rationalizing that  turned out to be! Your mother  is merely kidding herself that  she is keeping you out of trouble by keeping you ignorant.  The truth is, she is embarrassed to try to tell you about  sex. Her own hush-hush training means she just can'tfind  the words.  I'm sending you my book list  of recommended reading on the  subject. Try a heart-to-heart  with your Dad, who may have  some influence with her; and  can certainly give you a feeling  you are being understood.  DEAR DORIS ��� I  am  60  years young. I said young because I don't feel old. My family are all married and I am  alone. I didn't know anyone  here so I take dancing lessons  which I enjoyed very much, but  it is quite expensive. I borrowed money' from the bank  and I pay $55 a month.  I'm doing my bronze and sil-  verand I know HI be asked* ~tb'~  take out another contract. Some  of the students have been going  for seven years. But the truth  of the matter, Doris, is I am  scared to go into any more debt  in case I take sick and can't  finish paying.  I wanted to prove to myself I  could do it and I was hoping I  could show my two sons a certificate, and I hope, a medal. I  had to have some place to go  on my days off; one cannot  walk the streets.  Dancing  DEAR   DANCING   ���   You  don't have to pay $55 a month,  to have friends and fun. There  are Y.W.C.A. clubs, recreation  centre dance groups and church  activities.  Keep. up your love of life;  trip the light fantastic as much  as you like, but don't sign  another contract like that one.  Even your public library could  clue you in about things going  on around you which you could  have a part in without mortgaging your future.  DEAR DORIS ��� After a long  time away ��� living with another woman ��� my husband came  home. He told me he was home  to stay if I wanted him, and I  told him we all wanted him. He  stayed one night, left the next  day, and has never come to the  house since.  He had dropped in one time  before and the children were  almost hysterical when he got  ready tp leave, because he told  them he was home to stay; then  in an hour's time he left. This  last time was the worst thing  he has ever done, because I  really believed him when he  said he loved me and was home  to.stay. It was weeks before I  could get over it.  Confused  DEAR CONFUSED ��� To  judge from your long letter you  are still not as confused as he  is.  The heartbreak he deals out  to the children with such deliberate lies robs them of security  and will leave lifetime scars.  The counsel and support  which could be yours from the  family or child care agency in  your area is badly needed now.  Seek it!  New Year's Eve Frolic  Gibsons Legion Hall  Tickets $3 each  9 p.m. fo!  Buy or rent  is problern  for board  At last week's meeaing of the  school board for this district the  status of the temporary constructions used as school rooms  came up for discussion.  A report was made by Mr. G.  Cooper, principal of Gibsons  Elementary School that in two  of the portable school buildings  the roofs are leaking. Mrs. Volen recommended that a decision be made soon as to whether  the School Board should buy or  continue  to rent the buildings.  Mr. Bell, district librarian,  recommended the rental or  lease of 60 mm. films, and suggested that before any films  are purchased that they be previewed by teachers, and that  they be in sufficient demand to  warrant purchase.  The library at present has  8,000 books, which means a ratio of four books per pupil. He  explained that the department  of education standard is 10  books per pupil.  The board agreed to allow  approximately $250 in the new  budget for film strips for the  library.  The board was in favor of adding 60 mm. films to the library  but felt that the budget would  not cover the considerable cost  involved.  Mr. W. Potter, principal of  Elphinstone school reported on  the recent meeting of the Indian band with members of the  community. Such meetings can  be of benefit to both cultures, he  said.  Mr. W. L. Reid, principal of  Sechelt Elementary school reported that 80% of parents attended the parent-teacher conferences. A new system of giving report cards to the parents  and discussing them with them  met with parent approval, he  said. However, he suggested  that only the first and third report cards be handled in this  way. At mid-term, parents of  kindergarten pupils could be invited for a conference, he said.  Mr. Cooper reported that  about a dozen dogs congregate  at the school. It was suggested  that the RCMP be called to look  after the situation.

The School Personnel Study is a joint undertaking of the  faculty of education at SFU and  School Districts 14 and 15 South  Okanagan and Penticton. Financial assistance has also been  received from the Donner Foundation. The study will begin in  January 1&67 and will take four  months to complete.  During the study teacher aides  and school aides will be introduced into two schools, Nkswala  Elementary in Penticton and  Osoyoos elementary-junior secondary school in Osoyoos. Their  duties will all be of a non-instructional nature, and will include such tasks as setting up  projectors, preparing visual aids  corridor and lunchroom supervision.  Some of the questions regarding the introduction of nonprofessionals into school and  classroom situations that the  study will attempt to answer are  Does it allow the teacher to devote more time to her teaching  role? Does it result in a behavioral change in the students?  How does it affect student satisfaction; teacher satisfaction; job  satisfaction?

"W oman lucky  ticket seller  The amazing accomplishment  of a few zealous women was  demonstrated Wednesday morning of last week at the coffee  party given by members of Roberts Creek Auxiliary.  The Library, where it was  held, was festive for the occasion with many attractive gifts  for sale. Gold and silver sprayed decorations, hand made, added color and variety to a display of knit, embroidered, crot-  cheted and hand-sewn goods. Although the room is small there  was neither crowding nor confusion as guests examined the  articles and sipped their coffee.- All agreed it was a most  enjoyable experiment, proving a  financial as well as a social success.  The first three of the prizes  raffled went to Vancouver residents, and the fourth, a sweater  was won by Mrs. O. Moscrip.  Eleanor Reece came closest to  guessing the weight of the  Christmas cake. Mrs. J. Shields  sold all the winning tickets except one which was sold by Mrs.  W. Baba.  Remanded  The trial of the three men in  a magistrate's court charge involving them in a fracas with  Constable A. K. Winch of Sechelt district traffic control advanced further with more witnesses being heard. The case  was then adjourned to Jan. 5  when further evidence will be  presented.  The three men from Powell  River are Alexander Gerald Taber, Barrie Gordon Wilson and  Gary Williams Eklund all of  Powell River. The charge is  based on what took place on  Oct. 21 when the constable was  making a check under traffic  regulations.

My powder continually  cakes around my nose. How can  I rectify this?  A. Try using less foundation  and spreading it thinly. Probably the lighter liquid type of  foundation is best for you. Then  tissue-blot it to remove the excess before powdering lightly  over it.  Q. Have you a shampooing tip  to promote more gloss and  sheen in my hair?'  A. The beaten white of egg,  added to your regular shampoo,  is a big aid in this direction. A  brisk towel^rubbing, followed by  a vigorous brushing, also helps  to add sparkle to the tresses.  :  Q. What is a good, simpel, hip  reducing exercise?  A: Here's an excellent one:  Sitting upright on the floor, roll  to the right and catch your  weight oh your right hand ���  then over to the left, catching  your weight on your left hand.  Do this at least a hundred times  to each side, and you'll literally  "roll" that excess flesh off your  hips.  Q. How can I mix a powder  that is especially good for perspiring feet?  A. A mixture o one teaspoon  of powdered alum and twov:oja^c-5  es    of    powdered    boric    acid  makes  a fine powder for this*  purpose.  Q. I've been told that it's very  harmful to the hair to make regular use of water to help dress  it and arrange it. Is this true?  A. There are some beauticians  ���who think along these lines.  And it's true that water may en-  Mod  iBngfcteat Wi&fatl  Walter and Kay Karateew  SUNSHINE COAST  TRAILER PARK  Gibsons  courage dryness in hair that already tends to dryness, thinness, or falling. But water will  never actually CAUSE these  conditions if other causes are  not already present. If you have  good, healthy hair, I should say  that it is perfectly all right to  make use of water as a grooming aid.  Q. What makeup trick will  enable me to avoid accentuating  my too-short nose?  A. Try powdering your nose  first with a powder that is a  shade or so lighter than the  powder you're using on the rest  of your face. This lighter powder will serve to highlight your  nose into greater prominence.  Q. How can I make a really  good job of cleaning my facial  pores?  A. Using a complexion brush  and a good, mild soap lather, ,  give the skin a hard, but gentle/  and   firm,    rotary .-movement...  Concentrate on the areas where  the fat glands are most active  ���usually around the nose and  chin. A brush is a "must" for  a really thorough  cleansing of  the complexion.  Q. How can I reduce the prominence of my rather protruding eyes?  A. If you'll cover the entire  upper eyelids to the brow line .  with eyeshadow, this will seem  to make your eyes appear more  deeply set than they really are.  Q.

Gibsons Barber Shop  JERRY DIXON ��� JOHN SHERIDAN  (By A. R. BUCKLEY,      y  The Plant Research Institute,  Ottawa)  If you are having trouble  growing window plants because  your house is too dry, why  not try plants that will thrive  under this condition? Since  in wintertime so many houses have less humimity than  Death Valley, you should consider growing plants like those  that come from this very region. These plants are extremely fascinating and at timess produce spectacular and showy  flowers. \  Collecting and growing cactuses for their odd forms and  exquisite blooms has been a  hobby in Europe for more than  a century, but in North America  particularly here in Canada, it  has been in strong vogue for  only about 20 years.  Desert cactuses require a drier atmosphere than most plants  and they like periods of complete drought, conditions most  house plants are expected, to  endure when we go on vacation. Many species will actually  go all winter without watering,  although they will shrivel slightly and look grayish in color.  When they are watered in early  spring they become dark green  and in no time produce, in the  oddest places, buds that very  ���quickly grow into luxurious  flowers.  No gardener can truthfully  say he dislikes all cactuses for  there are so many diverse types  that one is sure to please. If he  dislikes those with spines he can  get the Sand Dollar cactus,  which has a flattened spineless body, an inch high and  three inches wide, divided by  ribs into pie-like sections. This  species produces jewel-like yellow flowers an inch long. The  other extremes for those who  find beauty in spines are the  hedgehog cactuses and the  prickly pears. Enthusiasts will  often rave about the velvety  beauty of the gold plush prickly  pear, which at the slightest  touch will unload a quiver of  microscopic spines into your  hands. These will irritate for a  long time until the last of the  spines gradually works out of  your skin.  Among the small cactuses  most suitable for growing in the  home are the peanut cactus,  which forms clumps made from  a number of peanut-like joints,  the very popular old man cactus  a cylindrical type covered with  BE A POOL BOOSTER  shaggy   white   hairs;    and   its  counterpart   the   old  lady   cactus, with a globular stem, which  too, is covered with snow white  hairs when it is a few years old.  Others are the powder puff cactus, which forms globes one and  a half inches across with slender green tubercules  set  on a  pink body and topped with tufts  of silky  hairs,   and  the  bird's-  nest cactus, which has a shape  rather like a bird's nest. There  are many more, some noted for  their shapes and some for their  stupendous flowers  such a the  night-blooming    cereus,    which  produces  in  summer large  14-  inch white flowers with golden  sepals that emit a scent strong  enough to attract (as it does in  the desert) large winged night-  flying moths for its fertilization.  Growing   these   desert   plants  takes so little effort and attention that amateurs usually kill  them with too much pampering.  Through thousands of years the  true desert cactuses have gradually   become   accustomed   to  long periods of drought and they  are able to store sufficient moisture in their tissue for use in  dry periods. Unless they are all  allowed   to   use   some   of   this  stored up moisture they will eventually decay. The barrel types  and prickly pear types must not  be   watered  too  often.  Prefer-  4tT>  I'm  returning  an  engagement ring., .could the post'  man throw it at him?"  ably, allow them to remain dry  from December to March and  remove them to a cooler place  in the home, such as near a  basement window.  When you . begin to water  again soak the plants thoroughly and then wait until they are  dry before the next watering.  At this time they will gradually  change their gray-green appearance to dark green and start to  produce buds.  This period when strong signs  of growth appear is a good time  to repot plants. Repotting should  be done every two years to ensure   good  growth.   Plants  left  too long in the some soil tend  to go into a period of dormancy  that might last for several years  causing the plant,  not  to die,  but to shrivel in size and become  too  weak  to  flower.  It  is  not  necessary to repot into a larger-  sized   pot  unless   the   plant  is  young   and   the  pots   are   very  small.  A good soil mixture for desert  cactuses is 3 parts of good garden soil, a little on the heavy  side, 1 part leaf mold, one half  part sand, one half part crushed  limestone (peastone) and one  half part crushed brick.  In June the cactuses may be  planted   outside   on   the   patio  where they can be kept watered or plunged in a specially prepared place in the garden. They  may be placed so as to form a  rock  garden  with   a  few  well  placed rocks or can be part of  the garden itself. In any event,  the soil where the plants are to  be placed should be dug out to  the depth of the largest pot and  2 inches of sand placed at the  bottom. Then fill the excavation  up with sand or sandy soil and  plunge  the pots to the rim in  this  or stand the  pots  on the  base  and fill  in  around  them  with sand.  For about a week after they  are planted outside they will  need shading during the hottest  part of the day. A sunny position in the garden is absolutely necessary.  . jA_H -__M_N->CTi_>_->_nW______*4_*l_*t_*ft_W_*t-W_W_W__  A HEARTY HELLO   TO EVERYONE!

WtSKESI  Frank Hay and Board of Directors  Elphinstone Co-op Store  Gibsons  (?_N_^-tt_S_*-^-fr-ti��^  By Erie Thomson  When my wife and I retired  to Hopkins Landing from North  Vancouver in 1949, we had waiting for us our summer cottage  of many years, which had just  been adapted for all-year living, or so we thought.  This cottage faces east, just  above the beach, the front has  a room at either end and has an  18 foot long verandah in between. The winter following our  arrival was a stormy one and  that verandah caught every  blast of the south-easters and  compressed them into the house  Next spring we cured that by  closing in the verandah with a  dutch door at the end and all  the rest with windows. The outlook across Howe Sound takes  in the ten miles of sea between  the islands, with a background  of the Britannia range with  Vancouver's Lions rising in the  centre. It has been described as  a million-dollar view, so it was  treated accordingly.  The middle three-sevenths became a plate glass picture window, and to the north there are  two one-seventh single windows  which open, and the same to  the south, with a broad window  ledge for the full length. We put  in outlets for light, heat, radio  and the cat, and found that on  any sunny day, even in winter,  we can have lunch on the verandah, and I have about every kind of geranium there is  on the window ledge.  *      *      *  It also turned out to be the  ideal place for chanter practice,  and I have watched the sun  rise in June behind Mt. Brunswick to the north and move day  by day to rise behind Mt. Gar-,  diner on Bowen Island to the.  south in December for many  years, during which I have  treated myself to an appropriate silver tea service to wet the  morning whistle.  On the slope in front of the  house we planted climbing roses, which have grown into huge  clumps which afford shelter to  the birds, and also planted a  weeping-willow tree, up the side -  of which now grows a curtain  of English honeysuckle culled  from the ruins of old Moodyville  the first settlement on. Burrard  Inlet.  I had no intention of hanging  a harp, let alone bagpipes on  that willow, but in trimming  the top of it, so that we could  see out over it from the verandah, I accidentally left a branch  which has been the singing  place for a succession of song  sparrows. The present tenant is  Caruso.  *       t'/:       *.  These sparrows are small and  inconspicuous, with brown plum-  Norm and Florence Harris  and Staff . "���  FABRIC HOUSE  Gibsons  age with white markings, and  they have a wonderful range of  song. When April brings to the  British Columbia Coast its  matchless spring, the \ male  sparrow selects some prominent mark from which *o proclaim his occupation of the vicinity for nesting purposes. For  years we have had a song-sparrow as a welcome tenant, but  not the same one, for their life .  span is just a few years.  This bird was with us last  summer, and winters in our  boat shed, safe from owls and  cats. He is on a personal subsistence allowance from the mas  ter of the house. My wife feeds  the commonality through the  kitchen window at the back of  the house and gets through a  five-pound sack of rolled oats  in a week, but my sparrow being "acquaint wi' the laird" is  very much front door company.  *       *       *  In the twilight of a winter  morning, the racket I make  when filling the wood-box from  under the verandah rouses my  little friend in the boat shed,  and he comes through the bare  dogwood and orange blossom  trees for his breakfast, his feathers all puffed out, ridiculously like the vague old men I  used to meet on Cordova Street  in Vancouver wending their  way from the Central City Mission  with  their relief vouchers  to the King's Cafe on Carrall  Street, for their first, and probably their only square meal of  the day.  I see this little fellow stoking  up the last thing before nightfall, to keep him alive until  next morning. He is tame, and  we talk to each other, and I  think that he realizes that he is  on easy street, for if his food  isn't there, he makes a noise  like someone pulling nails.

Ken and Larry  Kenmsc Parts  Gibsons  r_w_��_��_h��j-wwi��; Birds,beasties,bagpipes  Came April, and my bird  friend took his perch on that top  branch of the willow tree, and  after three or four days' practice, broke into the superb melody which has earned him his  name. He was at his best when  I played the chanter a few feet  away, for he considered my contributions as those of a rival.  I envied him for being able  to achieve a higher degree of  perfection in a few days than I  had in many years, but we  made music together until I  found one morning by some magic I had crossed the bridge to  join him, though I didn't realize  it until we had finished. This  accord has happened quite a  number of times since then, but  not at will.  Last summer we had quite a  session. One day, I started to  play my bagpipes on the pathway in front of the house, and  my sparrow erupted in great alarm from the bushes in front  of me, and rose like a helicopter straight up for some 50 feet  and burst into song. This didn't  kill the opposition, so he came  down half-way and tried again,  with no better luck.  I.played a third time, and that  brought him down level with  me. Then I noticed the hen bird  come from where she must have  had her nest, and perch in front  of me, quite composedly, as  much as to say what are those  two fools making all that noise  afoout.  For ,some years we had a  large and splendidly mottled  loon visit us on his seasonal migration, and I am not sure that  he appreciated bagpipe music.  I used to play to him from the  beach path, and he would swim  past on the starboard tack and  return on the port tack, giving  me the eye, several times, then  he would go away out and come  back in to me beak on, then!  turn put again and emote with  eerie shreiks.  I could never make out whether these were sounds of appreciation or of derision, and  my chances of making a lengthy study of the matter were  cut short. This loon trailed his  coat tails one day further along  the beach in front of another  house, and the Hibernian owner  of it shot him. Nature took an  appropriate revenge, for some  time later this sportsman, stood  on the cover of his septic tank,  Serving  Up...  BEST WISHES  to our FRIENDS.  We appreciate your patronage.  Al and Stella  WELCOME CAFE  Gibsons  which gave way under his considerable weight, and let hini  down into his element.  That was for the birds,, but  we found that our animals enjoyed the sound of the pipes.  We had a despotic old cat, named Sylvia, when we moved tp  Ho;pkins Landing. At that time  there was on the air once a  week from Vancouver a program of Scots music called  Amang the Heather, put on, by  Neil Nisbet ��� Wee Neil.  The cat, as usual waniea out  after her supper, but on this  radio night I used to say to her-  "You're no going out the night,  Kitty,' it's Wee Neil." She knew  and when the hour of the .program approached I would whistle Nellie Gray to her from the  chesterfield, and she would roll  over and over on the carpet,  but the moment Neil's signature  tune came on the air she was  up and on top of me flaked out  on the chesterfield, and I had  to grab her firmly by the tail  and pull it in time to the music.  She purred loudly at this, but  when a bagpipe selection came  on she made a funny noise like  that of a small kettle-drum. She  had no objections to her tail  being firmly held and pulled be^-  cause she was conditioned to it.  * *      *  Long before that, when we  first got her, my boys were very  friendly with a Hopkins Landing neighbor, a Nova Scotiani  who had after the First War-  been a geophysical oil explorer  in the wildest parts of South  America, and was full of curious tales of those parts. One of  these items had to do with cats.  His information was that down  in that country, when the cat  wanted out, they simply took  her by the tail and threw her  out, and the cat, plus tail, became habituated to it. My boys  experimented with Sylvia, and  the three of them Wad a great  time throwing her from one to  the other.  They used to put on an act  on the. old Union Steamships,  when we were coming up to  camp. Sylvia, who was a knowledgeable feline, had the run  of the steamer while in transit,  so the boys used to swing her  from one^.to the other, lifcejga i  pass from" the scrum in rugby,  to the horror of the matrons on ;  board who were sure that this  was cruelty to an animal, and  could never understand why the  cat came back for more.  * *       *  While we were still living in  North Vancouver, we had a  white collie named Garry, and  he spent his happy summers at  Hopkins Landing. I used to  come up on the Friday night  Daddy Boat, and after supper,  Garry used to approach me. He  had his simple w'ants, a walk, a  tall-play, a ride in the rowboat,  and a tune on the pipes.  ...and a. jndance  in your home!  Ernie, Minnie and Family  E & M GROCERY  Sechelt  I used to put them to him in  that order, but what he wanted  and got was a tune on the pipes.  There was one tune that really  set him going and that was the  79th's Farewell to Gibralter.  The wife bf the Nova Scotian,  who lived along the beach, and  who could sing a bit herself,  made the sourest of comments  over our duet and asked why I  tortured the dog. I had an idea  that he liked it, and this was  proved one evening.  *   ��� *' . *  My daughter had the collie  with her away up in the hills  behind Hopkins and was homeward bound when suddenly the  dog took to his heels and vanished, to her surprise. She  thought it was bears, but as  she got nearer home she heard  the sound of the pipes, and then  realized that the quick ears of  the collie had got the message  before she did. He got down off  the hills by coming straight  across country, and arrived in  time to put in a soulful rendition of his accompaniment to  the Farewell to Gibralter, which  duly griped our musical critic  along the beach, but our invitation to make it a trio settled  her.  From these observations I am  sure that our furred and feathered friends in their queer individual ways are moved by  bagpipe music, but whether towards it or away from it depends on the piper. ��  A GIFT!

Q. How soon after the receipt  of a wedding invitation should  one send one's wedding gift to  the bride's home?  A. As soon as possible. It is  inconsiderate to wait until a  day or two before the wedding  when you could have taken care  of this much easier..  Q. It is proper to issue invitations to a cocktail party verbally or by phone or by written  note?  A. Any one of these ways is  perfectly correct.  Q. Just what does a "tea set"  consist of?  A. A teapot, a caddy containing the tea, strainer, waste  bowl, cream pitcher and. sugar  bowl and a simall plate with thin  slices of lemon. The tea kettle  of boiling water should be  brought in at the last minute,  and. it is preferable to have a  spirit lamp or candle under it  to keep it boiling.  Q. Must one follow the usher  in a church wedding, regardless  of where one would like to sit?  A. By all means, follow the  usher. Don't be guilty of the discourtesy of having him lead the  way to a certain seat only to  find that you have gone elsewhere.  Q.'How does a dinner guest  know the proper moment at  which he opens his napkin and  places it on his lap?  A. Properly, he waits until the  hostess takes up her napkin.  Q. What tipping is necessary  on an airplane?  A. No tipping of airplane personnel is permitted. However,  when you alight from a plane  at the end of a trip, a gracious  "thank you".to the stewardess  is a very nice gesture on your  part and shows good breeding.  Q. When one is eating in a  restaurant where small butter  pats are served in little paper  containers, is it all right to let  the knife rest on the pat while  not in use?  A: Never. The knife, when not  in use, should rest along the  upper right edge of the plate.  Q. Where should dining room  chairs be placed when not in  use ��� at the table, or elsewhere  around the room?  A. There is no rule of propriety governing this. It depends  upon space and convenience.  OH-W.IMC.
