With the official opening of its  new office building at Madeira  Park last Saturday, Pender Harbour Credit Union signalizes its  16th year of operation.  From its modest beginnings in  1947, in a tiny office on the pro-  perty of Stipendiary Magistrate  Len Hambly, adjoining Hassan's  Store, the local branch has reason to be proud of its new, up-to-  date quarters, ���'- and present total'  assets of over $100,000.

According to tradition, every  Christmas Eve Santa Claus travels across the sky in a sleigh  pulled by eight flying reindeer  and leaves a gift for every child  in the land. To my way or thinking, this is a fine belief to foster $n fa young cbjild's mind.  Christmas, as well as being a  spiritual holiday, is also a gay,  happy celebration, and. Santa  Claus is the heart and soul of  this gaiety. ��� ���.'���"���-  Thus, a young child who does  not live an adult way of life is-  entitled to enjoy fantasy and San  ta Claus is his,early youth.  Most of us wouldn't deny that  there is a real spirit to ChrisK  mas, both religious and gay, and  for youngsters who don't grasp  the spiritual side yet, Santa Claus  exemplifies Christmas.

X  If there is any victor in the Columbia River deai.it ^ill be the  United States. Power will be part of the picture but timewilf reveal  that water is tlie��most potent factor.  The water problem extends from the far north to the Canadian-  United States border and has created considerable heat in the various states. There have been court cases right up to the United'States  Supreme Court over? water rights covering an extensive area which  now has a large population but in the next 50 years wiil have a,much  .greater population,, needing not only power, whether it be hydro.or  atomic will not matter, but water is water and there is. nothing to  Teplace.it. Synthetic water just does not exist. It is'the one item of  'daily life.which must be available. <  Establishing dams on Canadian soil will be"a. definite tbopn to  the northwestern states and the construction of further dams in the  United. States will help conserve water originating in Canada so it  can be used and re-used for power as well as irrigation and domestic  purposes. The water originating on Canadian soil will have an un-  ���estimated value as it crosses the.United States border and flows  towards other dams..  What is generaUyAknown as a population explosion will hot only  affect'the northwestern United Stages- It will also have an affect in  British Columbia and the western prairies, where deliberations are  now taking place with the object of, in years to come, utilizing water from the west coast watershed. Perhaps deliberations over power  and the Columbia River are chiefly riot a power problem.  < -  More interest shown  The Dec. 5* municipal election in Gibsons and the competition  "between a man and a woman for a school board seat was a decided  change from what Gibsons has experienced" over many years.  It was usual for acclamations to fill seats on council. It was also  ��sual for the school board nomination to draw a blank and result in  _iri education department appointee being selected.  *.. Perhaps in the past there was a public indifference, ignorance  ���or neglect towards the affairs of the. municipality and schools. The  emergD^ce o! ~_.-��v faces, in both fields is good. While the younger  element did riot get substantial strength, they did try out their-wings -  and gained experience.  It is better for people on the outside of. the affairs of the village  and school district to. get into the swim and find out what really  makes things tick. It is one thing to be outside criticizing but it is  another matter to be on the inside having to cope wi|th criticism,  often unwarranted-    .'     x ���     ,  It snould be remembered that public officials are not outside  the pale of what is known as the Bill of Rights, they too are people,  trying to do their .best for the community in which they live. Examining them continually with a microscope leads to. the loss of the  right kind of people needed for such positions in the comihunity.  By JACK DAVIS, M.P.  Coast-Capilano. Constituency  The house of commons faced  -with no .less than ten private  members bills on the subject, recently;; decided to set up an all-  party, committee to deal with consumer credit.' Publication of the  true annual rate of interest on  small loans is the main objective  of this legislation. The possibility-that a law will soon be enacted along these lines is undoubtedly good news to many Canadians  who are "buying., more every day  on the instalment plan and who  haven't the vaguest idea as to the  true interest, rate which' they are  being charged by these lending  agencies. .;.    ; ;  Interest which members from  all corners of the house of cpm-  riaoris are showing in this legislation is a.tribute to the pioneering efforts of Senator Croll. For  " years now he has been endeavouring to get a. similar bill passed  by the senate. His view, and now  that of a majority of the members of the house of commons is  - that the public huist be better informed if it "is to keep out of the  clutches of the loan sharks and  unscrupulous money lenders.  One of the first tasks of the  new parliamentary committee  will be to review the power of  the provinces in this regard. Borrowers, in Ontario, until quite recently, were protected by an act  which set an upper limit on interest rates. However, in 1962, the  Ontario courts ruled that this  matter-is Ouside provincial juris--'  diction. If the Sujpreme Court in  Ottawa upholds this ruling the  case for federal intervention ��� becomes that much stronger.  Many people will' benefit from  this information. AH of the available evidence suggests that the  majority of Canadian purchasers  who rely on consumer credit have  little idea of the true cost of borrowing. If they did, and some  standard was used for reference  purposes, they . would be more  selective in their buying habits  and  purchases  would  be made  Christmas  in  th.  M  Peaceful co-exi$terice?  CurtaMment .in government expenditure is apparently taking;  a hold in Canada arid the United States with closing down of military  installations under the control of each.nation.  It could be that there is an easing of the cold war as the result  of the serious food, problem which has had serious repercussions in  Communistic countries, to the point where ^Russia has founds it  .necessary to import necessary materials for the making'of vodka.  One can only hope these savings will eventually find their way  'back to the public to allow more personal spending and thus get the  -countries concerned on a more solid economic basis with less governmental spending striving to keep the economy going.  0 MM MTRS tT.KtVUrS, INC.  "Weill What did you expect to find in a glove compartment?"     j  Christmas is a day children an-  t!lc^>ate witti joy.. For ' adults,  Christmas awakens the childlike  spirit, which anticipates every  new day with joyous expectancy.  The Christmas shopping season 'is a time for remembering  loved ones. The big question of  the moment is, "What would Joe,  or Jane, or Aunt Elizabeth really like?'- It is a question which  leads thought away from self  in the;love that seeks the happiness of others. And the thought  of faces filled with happy surprise��� all children's faces for  the moment ��� is a reality we  need never forsake.  Whence came this miracle of  love? the origin of Christmas is  the meaning of Christmas. It is  the substance of every gift given,  ipf every smile on the face of '  child or adult. It is the Christ,  appearing among ' nien in . a  stable at Bethlehem; it is Wise-  men beholding the star and following it to where a new idea  had appeared .The babe, Christ  Jesus, later brought to humanity the concept of Life as Love.  Jesus taught the world that there  is no living without loving and  there is no motivating power ���  no reason for thinking or doing,  ��� without love.  ��� _ Today Christmas may be heralded by' a carol-playing brass  quintet, by. commercial appeals  to shop early and avoid the rush,'  by Santa Clauses, and by mounting charge accounts, but anyone  who ;chooses to do 'so may separate the noise 0f commercialism  from the angel thoughts, which  proclaim the truth of Jesus' gift.  which are more consistent with  their own best iriterests.,  Laws along these lines are al-  .ready in effect in the United  States.. Various countries overseas also require that the equivalent yearly rate of interest on  consumer credit should be published for all to see. We, in this  country, appear about to follow  suit. Certainly if the host of pri-*  vate bills which are now being  sponsored on this - subject is' any  indication, a Small Loans act requiring our lending agencies to  offer their services in a way  which can be easily understood  will soon be on bur statute books.  Mainly  about  People  A piece of newspaper sent to  the Coast News by Mrs. R. H.  Carruthers. of Gibsons 'area revealed guerillas were operating  in the Panama area, inebriates  and the insane could go to the  Homewood Retreat for treatment, cigarmakers were on strike  recompense for a veteran, was  suggested,, an. American Express  Company office was robbed,  $340,000 was taken from a Selby  smelter company office in the  United States and the mattec of  grain handling was before the >.  house of commons.  Sounds like this piece of news- [.  paper could be from any of today's - metropolitan newspapers.  However it came from a copy  of the old Toronto Globe and  was dated Thursday, August 8,  1901.. The only difference between . today and 1901 was that  the' names had changed while  the subjects were pretty much  about the same.  An interesting part of this less  than an entire complete page  from the old Toronto Globe was  a Robert Simpson Company  Ltd., store advertisement: It offered 200 dining chairs, hardwood, golden finish, high back  with embossed carving, strongly braced, impervious seats,  regular price 80c, Friday bargain 59c.  Another pleaser: 780 yards of  all pure wool; Scotch suitings,  50 .inches wide, regular price  per yard $1, Friday bargain 50c.  Ariother: Men's, best box calf  lace boots, regular $2.50, Friday  bargain $2. Some English tapestry carpet was going at 41c. per  yard; Nottingham: curtains, for  $1.15 per pair 50 and 54 inches  wide, three-and-a-half yards  long. Ladies muslin shirtwaists  sold for 65c.       .  It should be remembered in  those days $25 a week was a  good average wage.  Among the steamship lines  advertised were some names  long forgotten such as the Allen  Line, Donialdson Line, Thomson  Line, -North German Line, White  Star Line and Red Star Line.  Some Allen liners mentioned  were the . Numidian, Parisian,  Australasian, Pretorian, Mongolian, Nebraska arid Sicilian.  : ^^[tj^x+CJi  In Land Recording District of  Vancouver and situate east of  Porpoise Bay, vicinity of Sechelt  TAKE NOTICE that Bernard  E.

This ..celebration is a joy-  ful one, honoring and celebrating  the birth of Christ, our Saviour.  Thus, it is fundamentally religious!. But today, Christmas  seems more material than spiri.  tual, and many gifts (from San  ta Claus) seems the order of the  day. I believe that if Santa mod-  , erates gift-giving and emphasizes the spiritual side of Christmas, we will have achieved the  true spirit of this festive s eason.  .

Take care  of your tree  Christmas trees,J^y^mbply^t'  gaiety; and ^happiricss, vtoO-^often  become: a^ mass 'of' 'flames and  a symbol of disaster.  Trees, decorations, and special  Christmas costumes should all  be chosen with special care and  protected from fire. The, Federation, All Canada Insurance,  which represents more than 220  Canadian fire, automobile, and  casualty insurance companies,  makes these recommendations  for safety in the home during  the Christmas season.  Choose a srriall Christmas  tree, it will be less hazardous  than a larger one.  Keep trees away from stoves,  heaters and fireplaces.     -  Keep the base of the tree in a  ��� container of water to ��� keep the  tree   moist.  Use good quality electric  lights on '��� the tree,  not candles.  Check your lights for any defects which might cause short  circuits.  Be sure that Christmas lights  do not overload the electrical  circuits in your home.  ': '��� Keep papers/ gifts and other  inflammable articles away from,  the base of the tree until Christmas eve. '  Do not use paper, gauze-like  materials or other highly inflammable cloths for children's costumes.  Check carefully for burning  cigarette butts after every party  or gathering in your home.  Always turn out electric tree  lights when room is unoccupied.  THE   WEEK'S    LETTER:    "I  am 15 years old, A friend of  mine lives in another state. She  came to see me.

It goes something like  this, "Why not? Jeanne and Jill  have dates and they are no older  than I am."  This is no argument. Maybe  Jeanne and Jill have dates,  without their parent's ' being  aware of the fact. Maybe their  parents know it and don't/ care.  This is a sad state of affairs.  This writer is unable to understand how a teenager can be  happy with the knowledge that  his    or   her parents   just don't  care what they do, or what happens to them.  Most parents do care, fortunately, and that is why one  of the biggest problems a teenager faces is becoming "old  enough" to date with parental  approval.  At fifteen, a girl is old enough  to go to parties and socials that  are properly chaperoned.  Whether she is old enough to  have "dates" is another question  entirely.

Ken F. V. Maithouse, director of the fund, said in. a Vancouver interview thit cla'.rhs included .3S2 personal injury cases and 67 property . damage  claims. Pedestrians accounted  for 68 of the injury claims and  there were 46 claims involving  hit-and-run \ victims.  This means that the industry  has paid out more than $1 million in 29 months to. give British Cjci^umbiflhs���whether they  were pedestrians, . drivers or  car .passengers���Jfiiiancijal protection not possible through  normal auto 'insurance; These  situations , stem from the acts  of that two per cent ..of .our society which constitutes the lunatic fringe of criminal and irresponsible people, Maithouse  said.  "Insurance companies provide the fund through TVIF tc  pay claims up to $35,000 for  each applicable accident. This  amount is the same as the minimum limits of B.C.'s pink slip  insurance -requirements ��� the  highest in North America," he  said.  He pointed out that TVIF  handles claim* '.-��ust like an individual insurance company and .  that less than three nercent of  claims na'd to r��ate havp required reference to the courts  for adjudication.  "Thus it can be realized that  TVIF has much greater flexibility than- the Unsatisfied  Judgment {Fund it replaced."  he said, "in that court judgments are 'seldom necessary.  Claims can be handled snend-  ily and with a minimum of red  tape."-; '" > '">  The industry spokesman emphasized that the fund is_ riot  auto insurance, particularly  designed to replace normal  collision  coverage.

SARAH is : no ordinary flesh  and blood female; she is made  of plastic, glass, and metal, and  her name actually stands for  Search and Rescue and Homing  transmitter-receiver. -..'.:She has  long since proved herself to be an  invaluable member of the crew  in the locating -of missing aircraft.  The transmitter half of SARAH  is carried with the survival  equipment on all RCAF aircraft.  It is about the size of the transistor radio carried by teenagers  and enables the pilot of a downed  plane to transmit radio pulses  for 25 hours. These pulses -fan  con appro���imatey 140 miles across at a height of 10,000 feet.  On RCAF search planes the radio officer operates" the receiver  half of SARAH which picks up  the pulses     transmitted  by  the  out in a cone which forms a bea-  downed airman. These signals  enable the search" aircraft to*  home in on the lost plane fronr.  as far away as 70 miles. The distance varies with the terrain.  The radio ��� pulses sent out by  the downed airman are picked  up as blips of light on the smalt  TV-like screen on the SARAH  receiver. . The search plane is  then able to lock-on to the signals". The moment it passes over  the downed plane blips of light  cease, indicating to the radio officer that he is directly over the  missing plane. The'" search aircraft then turns, back and descends until a visual sighting is  made. ..-'��� .

Contemporary   life   seldom   allows us the luxury    of hours to  spare to spend in idle conversation, but the relaxation of a coffee break is enjoyed daily, in the  -home and office. A sweet confection is wecome with the fragrant  beverage      and   Coffee     Crumb  Cake  will fill the bill perfectly  the next time you're hostess to  the neighborhood   kaffee   klatch.  This moist, close-textured cake  has a nutted crumb topping. It's  rich in color and flavor, thanks  to the tasty blending of instant  coffee, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Unlike some coffee cakes, this  one cuts beautifully when it's  still hot from the oven and tastes  delicious even when cold. Made  by the quickbread method,  it is  mixed in jig time, so it's a recipe that will be handy for family  brunches on weekends, as well as  for coffee breaks during the  week.
