Volume 21, Number 1,   January  5,   1967.  7c per copy  Following the swearing-in by  Clerk. E. T. Rayner of William  Swain as chairman of Sechelt's  municipal council along with  new councillors Adele deLange  and Morgan Thompson council  checked items left over 'by last  year's council and finished up  with committee chairmen being  appointed.  Here is the line-uip of committee chairmen: Miss deLange,  deputy finance, licenses . and  Centennial committee; Louis  Hansen, fire, health, building,  airport 'and regional district;  Morgan Thompson, roads, parks  beaches, .public works, airport  and Centennial committee; Ray  Clarke, recreation, community  service, library and water  boards. Cheque signers will be  the chairman or Miss deLange  with the clerk, E. T. Rayner as  co-signer to both.  When the future of May Day  celebrations came.:up,";Councillor Thompson during discussion  on a Lions' club letter asking  for financial .support if the club  could take it over, said he  thought it would be a good idea  for the club to tackle it, and if  not the Lions club some service  club. Councillor Hansen thought  the Chamber of Commerce  . should take it in charge. Clerk  Ra>nc��r su^sted that original-  Diamond  Mr: and Mrs. J. H. Connor of  Gibsons will be celebrating  theiri 60th, Diamond, wedding  anniversary on Jan. 8, 1967. A  family dinner will be held at  the Legion Hall at Gibsons, in  honor of Mr. and Mrs. Connor.  There will be, open house from  7 till 9 at the Legion hall for  congratulations from their many  friends.  Mr. and Mrs. Connor were  married in Douglas, Isle of Man  January 12, 1907, and arrived  in Vancovei '-in.' 1911. Mr. Connor was a B.C. Electric Railway employee for 35 years. On  retiring they moved to" Gibsons  in 1946.  They have one son, Mr. J. E.  Connor, Gibsons, and two daughters, Mrs. E.D. Da vies, Gibsons and Mrs. J. R. Oliver,  Lake Cowichan. Six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren  many of whom will ibe attending  the reception with their families.  ly the recreation committee of  the village looked after it and  he suggesed this committee  should ibe revived.  Chairman Swain was of the  opinion council should not lose  command of 'the May Day event... -."  The provisional budget which  estimates about $13,000 possible  expenditure, until the regular  budget is brought in, was considered and passed. The pro-  . visional budget carries council  through until the end of May.  Griffiths and Griffiths were '  again named auditors.  Among the items left over was  the future of the old municipal  hall. Chairman Swain-preferred  to see it as a museum. Councillor Clarke supported the museum, and added that it might  make a good office for the regional district council. Chairman Swain added that the museum .angle depended on the financial state of the village.  A  request from  the  Sechelt- -'  Gibsons    Airport    management  committee   asking   for   an   increase 'to the airport grant of  $500, bringing the total to $1,250  was  deferred.   Council   showed  some concern over its financial  position   and  decided  to  delay  action.    Councillor    Hansen  thought  the  request legitimate  enough but in view .of the finan-  ;'cial, situation it^should be left.*  ^*oy^5for)M^ " ^ ->  Before the 'meeting adjourned the chairman stressed that  no verbal complaints will come  before council. They must be  written out and presented  through the clerk.  Mother rescues twins  Fire close to 4 a.m. New  Year's morning caused the hurried removal of Gibsons new  born twins, Charles and Ryan,  to a safe place albng with Laura  4 and Heather, 3.  Mike Hogan, the father, was  "in the kitchen feeding one of  -the,twins when a disturbance-of^  a J crackling nature * in '"tne "fiv"  ing room caused him to awaken  his young wife, Pat. She immediately grabbed the two girls  and got them out of the house  then helped look after the twins.  In the meantime husband  Mike was having trouble with  the telephone. Apparently someone ^answered the fire call and  then the phone went dead. Eventually after getting through to  a long distance operator in  Vancouver, a compleed alarm  was ���tu��ned in, <- ^ -  ' .fudging if dm the after-effects  of the lire, it started in the  Christmas tree which was lit at  the time arid spread to window  and wall drapes and down to a  Chairman's statement  12th Night burning  Don't throw that Christmas  tree into the garbage or into the  btxsh! Save it for the Twelfth  Night Burning.  : The 12th day of Christmas will  be ceiebrated at Kinsmen Park  in Gibsons, on January 6, at 7  p.m. The festivity will be marked by the burning of collected  -Christmas trees and will be high  lighted by  music  provided by  the Sechelt Indian School band.  Coffee will be served.  Bring your tree and your entire family. Come and join in  the fun and festivities of winding  up the Christmas season.   '".'  The Christmas tree burning is  being organized by the Gibsons  Kinsmen and they; urge all * to  cOme. Rememiber, Friday night  -at 7 p.m.;;on January 6. y  Buses lead to  At   9:30   Friday   morning   a  fleet of buses will convey some  175  grade  11   and  12  students  from   Elphinstone   high   school^  to  Sechelt,  while  a motorcade"  from Pender Harbour high will  converge on the Sechelt theatre  to view a special showing of one'  of   the   favorite   Shakespearean  tragedies,  Macbeth.  Mr. W. S. Potter, principal of  Elphinstone high school in commenting on this arrangement,  pointed out that the visualization and acting out of the play  not only helped to give better.,  retention of the subject for-class ���  room purposes, but also stimulated keener interest and appreciation  of...Shakespeare,  the  Father of English drama.  The local contingent will be  accompanied by Mr. Peterson,  English teacher and several of  his colleagues.  O.A.P.O. MEETING  Commencing with the meeting  of Jan. 18, Branch 96 of the  O.A.P.O. will hold its monthly  meetings at Sechelt's Legion  H^l.l. . ,  The winner of the Christmas  turkey raffle was Mrs. Les Husband1'of Powell River, a granddaughter of Mrs. William.Baker.

Columbia Centennial attraction, ��� this tuneful and  highly entertaining troupe has  been well-received while on tour  throughout the province and  have just completed. a ten-day  engagement at the Cave, Vancouver, where they performed  before enthusiastic audiences.  Reminiscent of the gay 90's,  The Best of Barkerville merits  a sellout at the Elphinstone  High School next Tuesday evening ��� a sure cure for those  January Jim-Jams.  Firstly I would like to congratulate Mr. Ken Goddard and  Mr. Wally Peterson on their election as Commissioners of the  Municipality of the Village of  Gibsons Landing.  . Like many other municipalities Gibsons Landing is suffering from growing pains and the  decisions this council makes at  this time will -be reflected in  the future of this community.  My experience ��� and particularly as chairman during the  past 12 months has taught me  that the council should have a  policy that will guide the progress of advancing this municipality in the right direction.  This thought was made very evident by zt motion made in coun-  :. cilr July 2^1963, that-' Martin J:  J. Dayton, P. Eng., be hired to  conduct; a survey and report as  outlined Tn his letter of June 29  1963, etc., etc. to cost approximately $900.  The age of standstill business  firms, and ^municipalities are  included, is an age of the past  and unless we advance we fall  behind. If it is the wish or desire of this council that the municipality of Gibsons Landing  retains its present restricted  area, then it will be necessary  to readjust the administration  cost of the municipality, as it  would appear to be out of all  proportion to other municipalities.  Already this municipality of  Gibsons Landing lias paid out a  great deal of taxpayers money  relative to the sources of water  supply. The engineer's report  ct, aside rs the following sources  of supply: Langdale Creek,  Chaster    Creek,    watershed    of  Chaster Creek, Gibsons Creek,  springs at Reid Road, springs  in the village, Roberts Creek,  Chapman Creek, and a number  of other sources of water which  were considered but are not discussed because of their inadequate size or adverse location.  This is as it should be. Nevertheless, this water survey made  by engineer Martin Dayton, has  been made in such a manner  that many of these districts can  get full information and benefit  without cost which I think you  will agree does not appear to  be justifiable from the taxpayers point of view.  The question of office hours  will have to be discussed and a  decision made relative to this  . matter for I can assure you that  ' I coundn't keep track of the  calls I have received in this  connection.    -  It is quite evident, that any  city, town, village or municipality on the waterfront has a dis-  inct advantage to municipalities  not so situated. Gibsons more  so than others and while the extension of the boundaries has  been thought of as being in a  northerly direction, Gibsons is  so geographically situated particularly in view of the change  of the highway from Langdale,  that as a council serious thought  should be given that the extension be developed and extended  not in a northerly but westerly  direction, thereby having a Marine Drive to take in Gower Point  and thence continue'as a Marine Drive to the Peninsula. The  above are directive suggestions,  not decisions for all decisions in  this council must be made by the  majority vote of the council as  a whole.  davenport^ The result had the  appearance of a flash fire. If it  "rtiad'got'out of hand the Hogan  owned home would have been  . destroyed and  most likely the  next door.house.  While firemen from Gibsons  firehall were battling the blaze  which was most stubborn in the  .. daKecpjoxt.and--am<>ng blankets,  Mrs* Hogan- helped fay'sOme one  on the scene drove her and the  four: children up to Sunnycrest  Motel where they were housed  temporarily until conditions  back home were cleaned'up.  Christmas gifts at the mercy  of the flash fare were damaged  to the point where they cannot  be used. A shirt still in its eel-  ilophane and trimmings was par  tialiy burned. A billfold still  boxed was spoiled by fire along;  with an array of children's toys.  The damage to the soft baby  blankets was just sufficient to  make them of little value as  blankets.  A visit to the Hogan home  Sunday and Monday revealed  a rapid cleanup of the damaged  area and with fire adjusters  checking the damage, the home  and contents being covered by  insurance, the Hogans felt much  better than they did at 4 a.m.  New Year's Day, thankful for  their lucky escape.  Elphinstone  raffle winners  The Elphinstone Red Cross  Christmas raffle collected  ?136.66. Division 1 which is  Grade 12A won the inter-class  competition by selling $37 worth  of raffle tickets. Division 14,  Grade 8A was second by Selling  $35.81.  The prizes for the raffle Were  Christmas cake, Christmas puddings and cookies. These were  made by Miss Symes' home ec  classes. First prize was a three  pound Christmas cake won by  Elly Mason. The second and  third prizes were won by Paul  Stroshein and L. Duncan. The  boxes of cookies were won by  Barry MacDonald, Mrs. D.  Hufobs, Dick Galley, Doreen  Stewart, Henri Richard, Willie  Takahashi; Mrs. L. Porter, Mrs.  Weal, Mrs. E. A. Cowan, Mrs.  Cope, Mrs. Allen, Mrs. G.

Harbor development  Gibsons small boat harbor offers the only marine accommodation between Horseshoe Bay and Secret Cove. There are also excellent fishing grounds in the area and the marine park on Keats  Island, a few minutes away toy boat. One of the most important  aspects in the future planning of Gibsons should be in the direction'  of its recreational advantages.  The above comes from the Robert Williams and Associates  planning study which is now in the hands of the municipal council:  It is a good point because waterfront development is going to be  a big factor in the future of Gibsons. '  Gibsons, to any mariner, large or small boat, is for upcoast  trippers, the last port of call containing every facility, except a  good launching ramp, for practically anything a mariner would  want. .'   ��  For years the Coast News has maintained, in the face of opposition too, that the waterfront, in view of today's circumstances,  is for consideration of marine traffic and not for the people who  have settled on waterfront property.  Some waterfront property owners admit that there is a good1  case for development of Gibsons waterfront for marine traffic  With the way Vancouver is spreading and the crowding of its waterfront facilities, something will have to 4be done to relieve that  situation and Gibsons is in a good position to take part in such'  development. ,'  Provincial and federal governments and the municipal council'  of Gibsons are well acquainted with the fact and while it may seem'  they have been dragging their feet, one of these days the mental'  boom will go out and these governmental authorities will get to->  gether and iron things out for the benefit of not only Gibsons but  general marine traffic as well.  We have the only wharf in the area for the handling of marine  transportation involving larger boats which require wharfage accommodation. The federal government has been disposing of its  wharves along the coastline and it will be up to the officials of  Gibsons to see that any move in the direction of closing Gibsonsi  wharf is choked off right at the start.  The breakwater problem is yet to be settled. To date plans submitted for consideration have not met with the approval of muniJ  cipal officials or others .involved in the brief which has received official study. A breakwater is needed but where it will be placed!  appears to be the stumbling block. Federal government proposals'  have not been of the type that has taken into consideration a much  larger .population and a much heavier increase in boat traffic.  Whether 1967 will bring us any closer to an actual breakwater  remains to be seen. In the meantime the various pipelines must-  be kept open and informed of the situation here. The Williams report along with another favorable survey made earlier for federal!  government purposes should be ample qualification for a breakwater for Gibsons area. !  Piecrust resolutions!  Resolutions, like piecrusts, are made to be broken. Janus, the  two-faced mythological diety of ancient lore is the root word for*  January, the first month of the year. The fact he is two-faced con-'  tains a connotation which perhaps gives resolution makers an  easy way out of living up to their resolve.  Perhaps resolution makers might come within the present news'  media hubbub known as the credibility gap. There will be a pro-*  nounced gap between resolution and performance. This should be*  come the subject of a deep background enquiry by those people whd  are exploring to the limit all possibilities to make the most of the<  credibility gap. Maybe they too pass New Year's resolutions which'  crumble like the pie crust.  (By Ed Thomson)      _  New Year's Eve along the  Sunshine Coast is observed in  the traditional manner, as in'all  parts of the country, but with  this difference, if one could  judge by a tremendous party  ^eld in a great rambling home,  well up the hill at Davis Bay.  It  was  a  full-fledged family  fun   frolic   that   would   put   to  shame the most boisterous and  sophisticated of New Year's Eye  celebrations over on the other  side ��� at least, that's how we  found it on pulling up before the  stone wall enclosure and entering the court-yard, jam-packed  with cars of every description.  *     *     *  As we crossed to the house, a  burst of sound came out from  every floor.  Another thing we  found, one doesn't have to knock  on the door for admittance ���  we had scarcely placed foot on  the porch when the heavy door  swung wide open, revealing figures in the warm beam of light.  Even before we could give our  names, we were engulfed by our  host and hostess, and surrounded by a bevy of children and  wildly   excited   dogs.   Escorted  down   stairs   to   the   basement  where the process of welcoming  was further intensified,  a genial bartender thrust a mug of  well-fortified    grog    into    our  hands, and steered us to a heavily laden snack table, where oysters, fresh out of the bay only  that morning, were ladled into  cups. By the time: we were able  to look around us, we were sur-:  rounded   by   happy   folk,   who  made it their immediate aim in  life  to make  us  feel  right  at  home. ,  * sjs *  Mac, an amazing little man,  cornered me, and found we  were, from Winnipeg. He had i  come over from the Old Country  to that place, close to the turn  of the century. Sure, he knew  his   way   around   Winnipeg   in  those days, drove a team of retired fire horses for MacKerch-  ers, pioneer grocery merchants.  JVIac, it appears, held many jobs  in a surprisingly short time ���  ; dog catcher for a single day, yes  indeed,   and   he   knew   Ginger  Snooks, the garbage man, who  almost gained fame and not a  little notoriety by running for  mayor and almost making it!  *       *       *  So Mac and his good wife  finally found their way out to  these parts as so many other  prairie folk, and as Master of  the Ark right down on the shore,  they live happy as grigs.  In the warm, friendly flood of  introductions, we lost all track  of identities ��� but that was of  no consequence, we were just  one of the party and took it  from there.  Upstairs, a truly amazing  sight met our eyes. Here in an  ever-flowing crowd of 50 to 75  arriving, departing or just staying guests, an accordion player  kept the young and old alike on  their toes to the quick tempo of  his music. As for refreshments,  we were completely overwhelmed, for around the huge living  room, dining room and kitchen  areas a solid phalanx of food  and drink of every possible  description and variety was laid  out in great array, truly a groan  ing board of gargantuan proportions. Here too, the children ,of  all ages, skittered in and out  among the guests.  . ; * * *  - From above, we heard the  beat and stomp of many feet.  We pushed our way up the  thronged staircase and there in  the rambling attic with its high  vaulted roof and stark beams  turned into a bower of fragram  cedar, was indeed where the  action was. Here the swinging  teeners held forth, as many on  the    well    filled    benches    all  Minute message  "He maketh me to lie down  in green pastures, he; leadeth  me beside the still waters."  Many of us today are vainly  seeking to appease a spiritual  hunger, and thirst, which, ever  unsatisfied, drives us into feverish activity. But we find only  arid pastures and empty steam-  beds. As we cease our independent searching and trust in God  as our shepherd, He brings us  to green pastures and still wa-  ers.  A girl grew up in a home in  which a Christian mother did  her best to keep calm in circumstances which tended to become hectic. There were several children, and insufficient  money. The mother was naturally high spirited. She could not  prevent her nerves from becoming frayed with the frequent  bickering and quarreling, and  the conslant problems of making the home what she wanted  it to be. The eldest daughter  noticed that her mother slipped  away sometimes when she was  COAST NEWS  19MRS 11.11  At the last meeting of the  Sechelt Peninsula Board of  Trade the main item of discussion was the board's efforts  to get a road built between  Halfmoon Bay and Sechelt.  The New Year's dance at the  Roberts Creek Community hall  was a gala affair. The members of the Legion acted as  hosts and offered the Pony Pals  as entertainment.

Years  later when the girl was married and had' children of her  own, she wrote these words to  her mother: "I know now why  you slipped away from time to  time when things got on top  of you. You went to pray to  God, didn't you? I have learnt  to do that too, and it is a  wonderful help." "Green pastures" and MStill waters." ���  Rev. W. M. Cameron, United  Church.  around the walls, as on the floor  itself, where they swayed,  stomped, wiggled and jived to  the latest way-out music of the  in-Mk.  It was. here we met the two  sons of the house, home on  Christmas leave: John, 17, in  the RCAF, training for the provost corps, and Rickey, 16, on  an -intensified training course  encompassing Grades 10 to 12  all in one year, in aerial mechanics at Kingston.  People were still arriving as  . we made our thanks and farewells to our gracious host and  hostess. On the way out, we.  asked what ever will happen to  all that food? Enough to feed  an army corps! Alex* with a  twinkle in his eye, said, "You  read in the Bible how the locusts descended and stripped  the fields ���' just wait til that  gang upstairs gets chow-call!  There won't be enough grub  left in the house for breakfast."  Out into the quiet night we  headed the car for home along  the shore of Davis Bay with the  moonlight showing through the  tall firs and limning the friendly house on the hill.  We were still lost in the wonder of our fabulous New Year's  Eve ��� outing; And on arriving  home we took down a ,'well-  thumlbed copy'.'of Pickwick Papers from the library shelf ���  Dickensian, that was it. The  whole affair could best be summed up by Dickens' description  of a; New Year's Eve happening  to the inimitable Mr. Pickwick  and his friends, and here it is.:  "The vast sitting room at  Manor Farm was a long, dark  panelled room, with a high chim  ney piece. At" the upper end of  the room, seated in 'a. shady  bower of. holly and ..evergreens,  were the two best fiddlers and  the only harp in all the town of  Muggleton. The carpet was up,  the candles burned bright, the  fire blazed and crackled on the  hearth and merry voices and  light-hearted laughter rang  through the room."  Such, was our impression of  the party at the fabulous house,  on the hill that eve before New  Year's.  CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE  MONDAY &   THURSDAY  1678 Marine Drive���Gibsons  Phone 886-9843  N.

DOMINION TEXTILE  COMPANY LIMITED  Manufacturers of TEX^MADE Products DEAR DORIS  advice from  Doris Clark  Success story  DEAR DORIS ��� There is a  blind 14-year-old girl in Vancouver who has learned to play  the piano by listening to a tape  recorder and memorizing every  piece. Then she picks it out on  the piano.  Her teacher says she has perfect pitch. She adores music.  ������' What's more, she is serious  about this interest and. practises long hours. She even won  first prize at the Kiwanis Music  Festival, where she was the  best of 13 contestants in the  Bach pianoforte class for children under 15.  Just thought this story might  encourage other handicapped  children ��� and even some not  handicapped ��� to stick with  their practising, whether it be  piano, voice, dancing or whatever.  Sadie Bending  Editor, CCB Outlook  DEAR SADIE ��� A fine story, and thank you! Our readers  will be delighted to hear about  your girl. Personally, I find the  tremendous activity of a certain blind editor quite inspiring.  The Canadian Council of the  Blind is lucky to have a vital,  capable person like yourself  turning out its Canada-wide  magazine.  DEAR DORIS ��� This past  summer I met a young, physiotherapist recently arrived from  India. We became good Mends  and often met for lunch or coffee. Now that I am back at  school we write to'each other.  In one of my letters was a  suggestion that he come here to  one of our school plays.  He accepted. I doubt that he  /'will.-* be here more than four  hours��� probably less time  than it will take him to drive  the 120 miles in our winter  weather.  I have considered his staying.  " at our home-for thecweek end  instead of driving back the  same night. While my family  has no objection whatsoever,  the plain fact is that we also  have no room whatsoever!  (1) If he does say that he  will stay overnight in the city,  should my parents reserve and  pay for his room?  (2) If yes, what would be the  correct procedure for the following day? I know of places  we could visit but in the case  of places where there is a fee  for entrance, who would pay?  ';-.' Maisie  DEAR MAISIE ������ The highways are good/and you may  find the night drive back won't  throw him.'But-���  ;."'. "  ..'"..' (1).It would be friendly ho&  pitality to a guest of Canada to  suggest and provide an overnight stay.  (2) Then if he takes you  sight-seeing, he'll want to pay  any admissions.  DEAR DORIS ��� Please tell  me how to deal with neighbors,  who have been borrowing constantly for a long time. These  articles include everything ���  from a lawn mower to any electrical appliances we have.  The lawn mower has really.  taken a hard beating. May add  we are not able to buy these  articles again.  Fed Up  DEAR FED UP ��� Dagwood  and Herb usually fight it out;  but it isn't funny in real life.  Comes a time when seasoned-  borrowers need reminding  about other people's rights.  You could:  <1) Give them a taste of  their own medicine. Take a  look in their kitchen for a  choice electric grill to appropriate for a while:.

Does the bride instruct the  attendants in the parts they are  to play a the wedding?  A. In a way, yes. Her wishes,  of course, must not interfere  with the religious ritual. It's  best always to abide by the  helpful advice of the clergyman  regarding the best way to accomplish a well-balanced, dignified processional to the altar  and the recessional ' coming  back. And he, of course, gives  all the instructions for the actual- religious part of the ceremony.  Q. Are desserts ALWAYS  eaten with the fork?  J A. This depends. Some des-.  serts are too soft ' for easy  handling with the,fork. A good  rule" to follow is to use the fork  whenever possible ��� but use  good judgment, too!  Q. Is it all right for a bridegroom to give his bride something for their home as his special wedding gift to her?  A. While not exactly wrong,  this is hot customary. Traditionally, his gift to her is something more personal ��� usually  jewelry of some kind.  Q. Is it necessary for a host  and hostess to accompany departing guests all the way to  their cars?  .  A. Not unless they really wish  to do so. Otherwise, it is all  right  for  them  to  speak  their  goodbyes at their door and then  remain there until their guests  are well on their way to their  cars.  Q. When attending a funeral,  should black be worn by both  men  and. women?  A. Not necessarily. However,  women should wear clothes of  somber colors (a gay, frilly hat,  for example, would be decidedly out of place), and men should  attire themselves in dark, conservative  suits.  Q. When is the proper time  for the host and hostess to seat  themselves at the dinner table?  A. The hostess always seats  herself first, which is the signal, for the guests to seat themselves. The host is always last  to seat himself.  Q. At a wedding reception,  must the guests remain to see  the bride off, or do they leave  sooner?  A. Just before leaving to  dress for going away, the bride  throws her bouquet to the  bridesmaids. Dancing may continue, but usually ��� it begins to  come to a close and the guests  begin leaving. It is usually only  the late-stayers who remain to  see the bride off.  Q. Which should be removed  from the dinner table first, the  serving dishes or the dinner  plates?  A. The dinner plates are removed first.  Pension data  Pension plans in private industry were not in general use  in Canada until the 1940's when  they were used as a means of  attracting labor during a wartime wage freeze.  -What was considered a good  pension 20 years ago is no  longer adequate in today's rising living cost index. This is  hurting many of Canada's older  citizens.  In larger cities, church and  service clubs are showing an  increasing interest in lunch-club  or day-center meal service.  Cost for three hot meals daily  or for one or two hot meals  weekly   is   nominal  Other service clubs issue  needy pensioners restaurant  credit cards or meal tickets,  while meals-on-wheels or a  home delivery service is being  piloted in eight Canadian centers.

HERE ARE THE FACTS  ABOUT BENEFITS UNDER THE NEW  GUARANTEED INCOME SUPPLEMENT  TO THE  OLD AGE SECURITY PENSION  The new guaranteed income supplement is a monthly payment  of $30 which will be added to the present $75 Old Age  Security Pension if the pensioner has no other income.  However, if the pensioner has other income but it is less than  $720 a year ($60 a month) the pensioner still (qualifies for a  supplement but on a reduced scale depending on his other  income.  Every Old Age Security Pensioner is thus guaranteed a minimum income of $105 a month.  Married Pensioners:  If both husband and wife receive the Old Age Security Pension, and have no other income, both  qualify for the $30 a month supplement, assuring them a. minimum of $210. a month. If married  pensioners have a combined  income of less than $1440 a year, not including their 0$ Age  .Security pensions, each may qualify for a supplement at a reduced rate. - ' ���.?���'���������  Application Forms:  An application form and a booklet containing details of the guaranteed income supplement will be  moiled to all Old Age Security pensioners during February. They will be asked to read the booklet  carefully and fill in the application form at once. Married pensioners are asked that each fill in an  .-Hiplication form and mail the two in the same envelope. Income does not include war service  pensions, gifts from relatives and money from a number of other sources. A list of  items not considered as income is shown on the application form and in the information booklet. Pensioners may receive help in preparing applications by contacting the Old Age  Security, Canada Pension Plan or Income Tax offices. Addresses are available in the booklet.  Payment Dates:  At least two months are required to deal with applications. Some pensioners will:receive their  supplementary, payments combined with their Old Age Security pension cheques in March. Others  will receive their combined payments in April. Pensioners entitled to a supplement as of January  1967 will have their payments back-dated to January.  ISSUED BY THE HON. ALLAN J.

Gloxinias, white to rose  "We now gain back that  hour we lost when daylight swings time started!"  (By A. R. BUCKLEY,  The Plant Research Institute  Ottawa)  This is the time of year when  tubers of gloxinias arrive in  large quantities Crom Belgium  and appear on the shelves of  merchandisers across Canada.  These handsome plants produce an abundance of funnel-  shaped flowers on strong stems  arising from a broad rosette of  leaves. They are available in a  glorious' range of colors from  white to rose, crimson and. purple and with mixtures of these  colors in the same flower.  Do not be alarmed if the tubers you find inside the package  are not like the gloxinia tubers  you have' been accustomed to  in the past. They now come com  pletely aevoid of fuzzy roots  and" look more' like".a potato  than a gloxinia. An infestation  of golden nematode in Belgium  has made it necessary for the  Plant Protection authorities to  take certain measures, which include the removal of all soil  and roots to prevent the spread  of this dreaded pest in Canada.  Don't worry about this abnormal treatment; the tubers will  flourish and grow just the same,  if you give the normal care. .  Here is how you treat them to  get the best results:  First, prepare a good gloxinia  soil of one part peat moss, one  part good loam and one part  sand. Plant the tubers singly,in  five or six inch pots provided  with the added drainage by a  quantity of ' broken pots or  stones at the base. The tubers  should be set so that the tops  are level with the soil surface  and the soil level three-quarters  of an inch below the rims of the  pots to allow for watering.  If you can't.,tell which part  of the tuber is the top, start  them.first in a medium of moist  peat moss and sand and watch  for the shoots to develop. Gloxinias like most other plants have  their shoots at 'the top and the  roots at the bottom. On some  tubers the bottom is rounded  and the top has a slight depression or is concave.  After potting, soak the soil  well, but thereafter and until  the tubers start to grow, water  sparingly and only when the soil  appears dry to the touch.  When the plants are growing  well with lots of top growth,  give sufficient water so that'the  soil is on the moist side all the  time. Keep the water off the  foliage and never allow the plant  to dry out completely.  A minimum temperature during the winter is often given as  50 degrees F. Gloxinias growing in the basement under fluorescent lights can be maintained  at this temperature. It has been  proved,    however,    that    these  plants will flourish with a minimum temperature of 60 degrees  F. at night and 70 degrees F.  during the day, temperatures  which more approximate living  room  conditions.  Place the plants in a window  where they will get lots of light,  but no direct sunlight. A sunny  window is ideal but the plants  should.be shaded from hot sun  by a light curtain.  As soon as flower buds form,  feed with liquid fertilizer. A  good all-round type with a formula akin to 20-20-20 used at the  rate of one ounce to a gallon of  water is good; so are any of the  liquid commercial fertilizers  used according to manufacturers directions.  When in flower, a cooler temperature will prolong the blooming period. After flowering has  finished, reduce watering gradually until the leaves wilt and  die; then take the pots down  to the basement or away from  the light and store them for a  couple of months. At the end of  this period shake the tubers out  of the pots and start them all  oyer again in new soil.  Gloxinias may be propagated  by seed,  leaves or divisions.  To propagate by leaves,  choose those that are mature in  summer and cut them into  wedge-shaped pieces with the-  stems of the leaves forming the  point of the wedge. Plant these  vertically one inch deep in a  mixture of sand and peat.  Cuttings may also be made in  spring by removing new shoots  that are one inch in length and  inserting these around the edge  of a four-inch pot that has been  filled "with a sand-peat mixture.  The old tubers, too, may be  divided just as they are starting  into growth. Cut them with a  sharp knife allowing at least  one shoot to each cut portion.  Then pot them separately into  small pots.  Because the seeds are so  small, they should be handled  with care. At the Plant Research Institute we prefer to use  a pot filled to within one inch  of the rim with a good sand-soil-  peat compost and topped to  within a half inch of the rim  with sifted or milled sphagnum .  moss. Sow the seeds directly on  the sphagnum and immerse the  pot in a pan of water until moisture appears on top; then cover  with a cone-shaped polyethylene  tent to keep the seeds moist until they germinate.  Some of the varieties of gloxinias available now are Emperor Frederick, red with a white  border; Emperor Wilhelm, blue  with a white border; Etoile de  Feu, bright red; Foi des Rouges,  deep red; Tigrina, spotted in all  mixed colors; Mont Blanc,, pufo  white; Blanche de Meru, white  with a pink border; and Queen  Wilhelmina,'carmine.

F*i'2la*->rl, Wes Hodgson  came to Canada in 1911 with a  student group to train for the  Methodist   ministry;  At outbreak of war, he enlisted and went overseas with  the Strathcona Horse. Shortly  after returning to Canada in the  fall of '17 he entered the Saskatchewan civil service. As  revenue supervisor, for many  years he inspected the records  of the municipalities, later being transferred to the bond issue department.  His 30 odd years with the  Saskatchewan government were  broken only by four years military service in the second world  war. These years were spent  as adjutant in various P.O.W.  camps  across  Canada.  Mr. Hodgson has always  shown an active interest in public affairs and the betterment  of the community. He has a  special interest in aviation, having given a series of weekly  talks over radio station CKCK in  Regina on the advancement of  aviation.  Making a brief holiday to  Gibsons in 1949, the Hbdgsons  decided this is the spot for retirement days. It was then he  bought the home he is now living in. Returning the following  year to enjoy- retirement, he  continued.-his interest in community affairs by working in  the various organizations. He  served four years as a commissioner on the village council and last year was elected  chairman of the village. His  only son is a group captain in  the RCAF. Wes. Hodgson's hobbies are photography and paintings.  Conventional methods of thawing frozen turkeys have been  compared in studies at the CDA  Food Research Institute in Ottawa, and, with Christmas just  around the corner, the results  have provided some timely  guidance for housewives.  The studies were aimed, at determining which one of the three  commonly used methods, thawing in a refrigerator, at room  temperature, or in cold water,  was the most satisfactory for  large turkeys of 16 pounds or  more, says A. C. Nunes of the  institute. Room, refrigerator  and water temperatures in the  tests were 70, 38 and 56 degrees  F. respectively.  The plastic bags containing  the turkeys were left intact and  the birds were considered ready  for stuffing when the tempera-  " ture of the carcass cavity reached 30 degrees F.  Thawing in a refrigerator is  the. best method because the  temperature of the surface tissue does not surpass the freezing point for an extended period, the researcher reports. It  is not the most convenient method, however, because of the  refrigerator space and extra  time needed for this method.  Thawing in a refrigerator takes  2.5 to 3 hours per pound, compared with one hour per pound .  lor the other methods.  If lack of  refrigerator space  Early B.C-  The British Columbian reported May 22, 1865, that a fisherman named Portugese Joe took  20 cwt. of sturgeon from the  Fraser River in one evening, the  largest weighing 400 pounds.

A customs officer at Bella  Coola, John Drummond Buchanan Ogilvie was murdered  there"',it was;;-; reported in the  British ColuxMwan May 26, 1865,  by a man found in illegal possession of spirits.

Where your  fingers do the walking.  and preparation time are important considerations, a turkey  may be thawed in cold water or  at room temperature. But with  these methods, care should be  taken that the turkey does not  remain unrefrigerated for longer than necessary. Surface tissue of a turkey thawed in water reaches and remains, above  32 degrees for a longer period  than with the other methods.  While its, surface temperature  will exceed 32 degrees for a  more moderate period, a turkey  thawed at room temperature is  subject to skin discoloration and  oi'f-odors and, if the plastic bag  is broken, to drying.  For turkeys Of 24 pounds or  more, Mr. Nunes recommends  thawing at room temperature  for the first 12 hours, followed  by immersion in cold water for  the balance of the process.  ^  THE  886-2827  TWILIGHT  For the Best in Entertainment  WED. 11; THURS. 12; FRI. 13  at 8 pih: ��� SAT.

Letters must be  brief, signed and your address shown. Send to "Point  of Law," c/o this newspaper.  Q. What can" a lawyer charge  for his. services ��� does it depend on the amount of time  spent on the  case?  A. The answer to this question is complicated. The rules  of court lay down with exhaustive specivity the exact amount  which a lawyer may charge for  the drawing of hundreds of different types of documents and  other professional attendances.  In the case of a difference between lawyer and client as to  the fees ��� either party may  have them set by the registrar  of the court. Fo this, the lawyer would have to draw up a  document listing each item of  services rendered. It is more  practical to answer your question by stating what lawyers  do charge (and this would generally be a little less than they  are entitled to charge.  I would say the average law  firm makes minimum charges  as follows: phone conversations  '$1 each, letters sent $3 each,  letters received $1 each, time  spent on interviews, court appearances, etc $25 per hour.  Some matters have a more or  less standard fee, for example,  an uncontested divorce $300, or  incorporating a simple private  company $250. In a sale of land  (including deed, agreement for  sale, mortgage, etc.), a lawyer  may charge as follows: 1% of  $2500���$25, V2% of balance of  value of land up to the next  $47,500���$237.50, then y4 % of excess. I would think the average  law   firm   would   charge  about  POINT  OF LAW  If ^4 jf^racliclnq oLawper  three-quarters  of  this   amount.  In the collection of accounts,  a charge may be made as follows: 20% of first $300 collected���$60, 15 % of next $700���$105,  then 10%  of excess.  In handling of estates ��� for  doing all that is necessary to  obtain letters probate and settle the amount of federal and  provincial estate taxes and draw  ing and filing necessary forms,  the following maybe charged:  2% of first $500,000 value of  estate���$10,000, 1% of excess. If  the lawyer' does the work of  the executor after the above,  that is, transferring title to the  executor and thence to the  beneficiaries, he would charge  perhaps another 1%.  In all cases, the above may  be increased according to the  complexity of the subject mat*  ter and generally the value of  the  services rendered.  Every well run law office will  have a record of every phone  call, and the length of time spent  on interviews and court appearances. If it doesn't, the lawyer will have a hard time proving his fee. If you have a dispute with your lawyer over  the amount of-his fees, don't  hesitate to demand that he have  them   set  by   the  registrar.

When do you think is the  .best time for use of pomade  or tonic on the scalp?  A. . Immediately after the  shampoo, when the scalp is  glowing and receptive. Massage  of the scalp is especially effective, too, when the warmth and  friction of your shampooing  have brought the blood into  your  scalp  tissues.   '  Q. Please suggest a good corrective treatment for an abnormally oily skin.  A. Very good for this condition is the regular sponging o'f  the face with equal parts of  cologne water, witch hazel, and  rose water.  Q. How can I, make-up-wise,,  subdue the effect of my larger-  than-average ears? .  A. Sometimes a touch of  rouge on the ear lobes, and a  bit of powder, will make them  blend in with the face instead  of stand out. Wear only small  earrings. And wear your hair  so that it covers a good portion of your ears.  Q. What is a good tummy-  flattering exercise?  A. Sit on a straight chair,,  shoulders back, gripping the  seat with both hands. Then to  the count of 10, bring the knees  up to the chest, and keep repeating, working up to at least  12 to 15 times per sessiom  Q. Please suggest a good  treatment for removing blackheads  from  the  skin.  A. One good suggestion: Apply some slightly moistened  cereal grains, such as oatmeal,  to the affected areas of your  skin, and after allowing these  to dry on the skin, rub" them  vigorously off with a coarse  towel. It's the abrasive action  of the grains that digs in and  helps dislodge those unattractive blackheads.  Q. What is a good before-  breakfast drink that will serve  as a mild, safe laxative, and a  general toner-upper for the  body and skin?  A. Unsweetened lemon juice  in hot water is one of the best.  Q. How can I remove some  mascara stains from one of my  unwashable   dresses?  A. You can either sponge  with carbon tetrachloride, or  work in an absorbent, such as  .;. fuller's ' earth, cornstarch, or  talcum, letting this remain on  for a few minutes, then brushing it off . . . and the stains  should brush off with it.  Q.. How can I quickly whip  up a good, cleansing facial  beauty mask or pack?  A. Just by mixing some raw  oatmeal with milk to a paste.  Q. What is a good way of  determining whether your hair  is oily or dirty, or both?  A. When you run a comb  through it and see the tooth  tracks. If you happen to be in -  between shampoos, try "dry-  cleaning" it with an . antiseptic  hair tonic. Saturate a, cotton  pad, part the hair into small  sections and pat the entire scalp  until it feels tingly and cleaq.  Dry,.each spot as you go along, ���  so that, the excess moisture  won't ruin your hair setting.  Q. Blemishes are continually popping up on my face, and  for apparently no good reason  at all, since I'm otherwise healthy. Any advice?  A. This could quite probably  be due to your diet. Try to resist fried /foods, rich desserts, "  candy, nuts, spicy and sweet  dishes. Drink lots of water  every day. Use a medicated  lotion to help heal your skin,  and avoid greasy makeups. Be  extra careful about the cleanliness of your powder puffs,  washcloths, and towels. And if ,  the condition persists, see your  doctor or a dermatologist.

Baity. Mitchell Press Limited, Vancouver   ($5.50).  Now in his late fifties, the  author was a young, newly-  married man employed on a  fur farm when the Great Depression brought his job to an  end.  Cariboo-raised, he took pack,  snow shoes, traps and rifle as  the instruments, to work out his  own  welfare plan.  These are Baity's reminiscences, some 35 years later, in  the age of unemployment insurance and social assistance,  as he recalls the lean, hard  days., He went to Mother Earth  for his welfare and fed his  family as did our frontiersmen  a century ago.  To give his two daughters an  education, Earl and his wife  Freda returned to city life  where Baity was a construction superintendent. But when  these responsibilities had been  met and the couple were once  again alone and free to move,  the Baitys responded to the lure  of the land of their youthful  struggles to servive.

SUNSHINE COAST ST  Box 517 ��� Sechelt ��� Ph. 885-2132 The Davis Ottawa  SCOTT'S SCRAP BOOK  (By  JACK  DAVIS  Coast-Capilano M.P.)   '  Education, according to the  British North America Act, is. a  matter for the provinces. But it  all depends how you-define ed-.  ucation. The advancement of  knowledge, for instance, can be  split between the education' of  children (provincial) and; the  training, or re-training, of adults  (federal). This is what Prime  Minister Pearson proposed when  he met with the provincial prem'-  iers in .Ottawa recently.  Everyone agrees that education is becoming more important. The faster things change,  the more important- it is. And  the more important it is, the:  more it costs. Ottawa, recognizing this, is going to turn more  money over to the provinces.  But it also has to look after its  own responsibilities as well.  Its own responsibilities include the re-training of adults  ��� those who are under-employed as well as those who, often  through" no fault of their own,  are thrown -out of work for  months and even years at a  time. " .":.  If the depression of the 1930's  taught us anything it' was that  the provinces, acting separately  and on their own could not  solve the problem of unemployment. Only the nation, with its  control over foreign trade and  its power to exparfd the nation's  money supply could really look  after the-jobless in this country.  That lesson has sunk,in. No  provincial' premier ever claims  that he is responsible for providing us all with jobs. So much "  so that Premier Johnson of Quebec scarcely raised a finger'  when Mr. Pearson said that Ottawa ,will shoulder the cost,of  restraining including that resulting from technological  change.  What..,did-JVfr,- Pearson pro-,  pose? He said that Ottawa would  turn over enough money to the  provinces for them to meet half  of the operating costs of our  secondary vocational schools,  post-secondary technical institutes and universities. Ottawa's  yearly cheques, in this case,  will ' only be ten in number.  They will go to each of our ten  provincial capitals. Victoria, for  example, will then be responsible for dividing "this federal  money up between the different  schools and universities in B.C.  Ottawa's vocational school  building program will meanwhile come to an end. It was to  end on March 31, 1967. But Mr.  Pearson put the date off until  1970. By then another $45. million will have been paid for the  building of new secondary vocational schools and technical institutes in B.C.  Up to March 31, 1967, Ottawa  will have put $44.9 million into  new vocational training facilities in B.C. ��� on a 75-25 basis  with the provinces. Over the  next three years $45.2 million,  will be available on a 50-50 or  matching basis.  Adult training falls under an  entirely different' heading. In  this case, Ottawa will be mailing its cheques out directly to  individuals. For instance, if a  man is out of a job he should go  to his nearest Manpower Cenr  tre. There the federal officials  will tell him where the work is  and what new skills are required. If he wishes he can sign up  to be re-trained. He will be paid  a going wage, and the cost of'.  his re-training will be at federal expense.  As the Economic Council of  Canada has observed, the retraining of the older members  of our labor force has lagged  far behind the . skills being  taught in our secondary schools.  It will take a major effort to  raise the level of training of  our adult population to 4hat of  the very young. So Ottawa's  new program is designed to upgrade our existing labor force  as rapidly as possible.  To quote Prime Minister Pearsons "The federal government  has to act as, in effect, the purchaser of training for adults. It  must make the right, kind of  training financially possible for  the worker and the company.  This is the role which Ottawa  must accept if it is to discharge  its responsibility for promoting  economic growth and full employment in Canada as a  whole."  Realtor  Variety, enthusiasm and ac-.  complishment .describe the life  of local realtor Kay Butler.  Born in the Okanagan, Mrs.  Butler moved with her family to  San Diego, California, and spent  several years there.  In her youth, her family made  a trip to Ontario during the winter months, and it left an impression of a forbidding climate.  She recalls blizzards, freezing  weather and clogged roads. It is  little wonder that she gladly accepted the post of director of  the Sunshine Coast Tourist Association. She recently made a  tour as far'as Los Angeles as a  representative of the association, and boosted considerably  to those she contacted the "balmy  weather and the impressive natural beauty of the Sunshine  Coast.  Previous to her locating in  Gibsons, she seized an opportunity to serve as a cook for a  threshing crew in Alberta. She  enjoyed the experience, and  continues to relish effort and  the rewards of accomplishment.  In 1954 she moved to Gibsons,  and in 1957 began her. career in  real estate. Since 1962 she has  operated Kay Butler Realty, and  her husband, Edward, handles  the insurance.  For the. past year she has  served as director of the local  Chamber of Commerce.  Hobbies of copper tooling and  furniture refinishing fill her  leisure hour's. A design in copper she is especially proud of is  her creation of The Last Supper. '  \ms  By R. J. SCOTT  urn.

Lavish  wide bands of richly embroidered ribbon,at sleeves and  tunic hem, following up the side  slit to a bold mitred V at waist  level. Match up with Capri  pants for two smashing switch-  abouts.  A bedspread plus imagination  and a little time equals a "boutique" dress. Don't stop there.  How about a dainty duster  (printed sheets), a cuddlesome  robe (downy blankets), a luxuriously brocaded suit (drapery  and upholsery fabrics), a thirsty  bathrobe (luscious turkish tow-,  els), fun clothes (tableclothes)?  Billowing chiffon, the color of  frosty lime sherbet, liberally  sprinkled with daisies and  gathered with a little spring of  fullness into an innocent smock  shape ��� outrageously feminine!  Underneath ��� a matching silky  shift. Two dresses really, to  wear separately or together. OR,  fashion tender pink chiffon into  a simple tent-shape to ripple  and float. A sparkle of silvery  lame glitters at sleeves and  hem ��� underneath a lick of  lavender.  To press velvet, velveteen,  corduroy and other napped fabrics without shine:  ��� set temperature at "wool."  ��� put iron upright and drape  over it a damp turkish towel.  ��� hold wrong side of fabric  close to towel and draw back  and forth so steam can penetrate.  The long pull of jacket is  here, to mate with skirts, slacks  and dresses. Hips heavy? Pare  the jacket to above or below  your widest part ��� dead on will  make you seem even wider.  The brighter the color, the  more sparingly it should be used for accessories. Never choose  all accessories the same color,  e.g. red hat, gloves, shoes and  bag. A red hat, navy shoes and  cream gloves would do much  more for a navy suit. No more  than two accessories should contrast with the outfit, the others  blending with the garment  (either the same color or neutrals).  McCall's Patterns, Laces, Remnants & Singer Supplies  D. G.
