 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINECOAST  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Phone 886-2622  Volume 21  Number   50,   Dec.   28,   1967  10c per copy  Massing victim  Road block checks by  ROMP in Gibsons district  over Christmas holiday did  not bring about any charges  or suspensions, but various  warnings were given.  Police announce r o ad  blocks will be maintained  until after the New Year  celebrations.  The recent snowstorm caused road accidents in Gibsons  area, one of which resulted in  incorrect stories being circulated concerning a supposed  missing victim of one accident.  Dave Paton, 34 of Ladner got  into trouble at. the cemetery  side of the S turn in the high-.,-  way resulting in his car clipping  a telephone pole. A passerby  picked him up and conveyed  him to St. Mary's Hospital. In  the meantime ROMP investigating were unable to immediately  find anyone and searched the  surrounding area. However they  found he had been taken to hospital. In the meantime stories  circulated that the police were  looking for a second victim.  There was no second victim.  Paton remained overnight in  hospital.  Another mishap at the highway turn in Langdale area resulted in a car driven by Gary  William Gee of Gibsons skidding into a car driven by Reg  Gurney and sliding into a parked truck owned by James Walton of North Vancouver. Gurney suffered a cracked rib. C.  D. Anderson, 20, a passenger in  the Gee vehicle was taken to  hospital with .face lacerations  caused by his breaking through  the car windshield.  In a third accident on Gower  Point Road, a quarter of a mile  from Gibsons a car driven by  Megan Moorcroft in trying to  pass a truck, slid towards the  side of the road where it overturned, sliding down an embankment. Occupants of the car included Mrs. Todham and Mrs.  Finlayson. There were no injuries reported.  9 Happp JSeta  for all  ALSO many happy returns on their first birthday to the Hogan  ���     �� twins, TRyan and Bruce, Gibsons Christmas twins of a year, ago,  ftlTl^kiri      first twins born at St. Mary's Hospital. These are the husky sons.,  of Mr. and Mrs. Mike Hogan of Marine Drive.  Oppo  not evident XMvorce reform - - - -  Following the non-appearance  on Dec. 20 at 8 pjm., of any  opposition to a revision pf Sechelt's, zoning bylaw, council  that same evening gave bylaw  81 three . readings. The final  reading occurs when municipal  department officials in Victoria  approve the bylaw ;as read.  -This *re\isi6-.^  "chl-lt'-concerhs lands;. on Porpoise Bay road which are;to be  reserved for semi-industrial purposes on the west side and for  industrial only on the east side.  At the opening of cqundl meet  ing Hon. Isabel Daiwson, minister without portfolio presided  over a short ceremony during  which Chairman William Swain  smoked the pipe of peace Mrs.  Dawson has carried with her  around the province. During the  meeting Village Enterprises obtained a building permit from  council for an addition to post  office facilites. The addition will  be a 20 foot extension in rear  of the building.  AN  NDP MEETING  While nothing official has been  announced, it is expected the  NDP candidate for the new  Coast-Chilcoton federal constituency, Hartley Dent, will speak  in Gibsons on Jan. 6.  By   JACK  DAVIS.   MP  foast-Capilano Constituencv  Divorce reform has not been  easy. It has caused the government a lot. of headaches. One  " of the decisions it had to make  was   whether   the   divorce, re-form, bill 'should be. a goyern-  -/-h^rict-'nfeasuretjr^puC'tb' a 'free  ' vote in the house of commons.  If it had been left to a free vote  it   might  have   been  defeated.  On the other hand if the government  put  its  whole weight  behind   the ..bill'..then.'-a   good  many   Liberal   M.P.s   were   in  the  position   of having to   endorse a measure which was repugnant to their own feelings in  this connection.  By urging the Liberal backbenchers to put their own personal feelings aside, Justice  Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau  said, in effect, that the state  had no business legislating individual morality.  What a man or woman does  in his own personal life is a  matter for his or her own conscience to decide. Laws, of  course, are essential. But they  should not invade the privacy  of the home. Nor should they  require people, any more than  is necessary/to do something  which is moraUy or ethically  repugnant to them.  The  Roman  Catholic  bishops  Sound of real music  The Sound of Music now playing at the Twilight Theatre has  people who pass themselves off  as critics somewhat puzzled by  its general acceptance by the  general public. A film that ran  in Vancouver and many other  places for more than 100 weeks  should speak for itself. The so-  called critics should examine  their thinking.  First the music of the Sound  of Music is invariably haunting.  It is simple, requiring no great  depth to appreciate and also  spreads a feeling of pleasure.  Top-ranking musicians are not  adverse to examining the reason for ..the success pf this  simple musical vehicle.  The Trapp family, whose life  the story it tells are musicians  first. One should hear the Trapp  Family records exclusive of the  Sound of Music to get some  idea of the wide repertoire  they encompass.  Members of the Trapp Family  were also adept at recorder  playing but unfortunately there  is no recorder music in the  film Sound of Music.  Ragers and Hammerstein wh  produced the play that resulted  in the movie, scored a greater  hit with their musical than they  ever expected. It tells part of  the story of the famous Trapp  family and their experiences to  escape the Nazis in Austria in  1938 by climbing the mountains  to Switzerland.  Julie Andrews who stars in  the Sound of Music fits the part  beautifully and she has an ex-  celent supporting cast that  leaves little to be desired where  perfection is the order.   "  Some people have gone to  see this excellent production  many times which reveals that  there are people who like their  music good even though it may  be simple. We could do with  more such productions but can  only hope for one to come maybe every quarter century. The  Sound of Music will have a long  life.���F.C.  UNKNOWN WINNER  In the draw at Earl's in Gibsons before Christmas the winning ticket wasr No. 19232 and  the holder is asked to visit  Earl's and claim the prize.  of Canada approached the prob- .  lem in a different way. In their  brief submitted last fall to -the  commons  committee  on  health  and welfare,  the bishops  said:  "We wish to make it abundantly  clear  that  the  modification  of civil law   (necessary in the  case of divorce reform)-in-;htiF,  way implies the -modification of ;  God's   moral   law.   No /matter  what  the  civil law may state;  divine law remains intact."  In other words, the official  spokesman for the Roman Catholic church, like those of many  other faiths, no longer oppose  the change in the law/Many of  them will still be opposed to divorce; But, in essence, one's  conscience, and not the civiL  law, should be his guide.  Obviously the state must draw  up rules for a well ordered society. But these rules must apply to society as a whole. Rarely, if ever, should they apply to  individuals in their own private  capacity. As John Stuart Mill  wrote in his Essay on Liberty  100 years ago, the only purpose  for which power can rightfully  be exercised (by the state) over  any member of a civilized community is "to prevent him from  doing harm to others.  The law  still'has  its  place.  Society must still be concerned  about   the   eififects   of   divorce  on others for example. It must  be concerned about the fate of  dependent   children   for   example.   To'  the   extent  that  they  need help from the rest of the  community, society itself is involved. The law. must speak out.  These and other matters were  of  course  given  serious consideration when the divorce bill  received third and final  reading in  the  house of commons  recently. It passed unanimously ��� without a dissenting vote  Many   members   were   absent  however. Andi these included a  goodly number whose religious  faith' teaches   that   divorce   is  against God's moral law. Their  very absence however indicates  that they are no longer of the  opinion   that   civil   law   should  speak on this matter and the  rest of the Canadian community should be  subject to legislation which is at least 100 years  out of date.  DRAW WINNERS  Winners of Gibsons and District Kinsmen club Christmas  raffle were-R. Wilson, 1st; D.  Tattrie, 2nd; R. H. Chamberlin,  3rd and Fred Townley, 4th.  Bleak months  for trustees  "We should prepare ourselves  to being faced with a/bleak-18'  months, in  education,"  warned  "Chai^ma'ff ��'6f ^'th'e.r Campbell^Ri-  7 ver School Board, Bruce Saunders at a recent board meeting.  ing.-       -    ������'   '���   . , -     ���.���'���"���  "Because of the present freeze  by the provincial government  on building programs in the  school districts we are going to  have to look seriously at the semester system,' school on a 12-  month basis, and teacher aides.  "We must do this if we want  to maintain our present teacher-  pupil ratio. I don't know' how  we are going to do it but if any  school district in the country  can do it, we can," said Mr.  Saunders.  Cantor cantata  The Canfor Singers of Port  Mellon presented the Christmas  cantata When Love Was Born  under the able direction of Mrs.  E. Sherman. The choir which  showed the results of excellent  training had as soloists Mrs. Lucille Mueller, Jack Inglis and  Ken Gallier. /  A junior choir also under the  direction of Mrs. Sherman did  very well with their numbers.  The audience participated in the  singing of two traditional carols. Mrs. Ed Freer was the accompanist. Rev. W. M. Cameron of Gibsons United Church  closed the pleasant and successful evening for both singers  and audience and with customary Port Mellon hospitality, coffee and pastries were served.  Wins carver  Thursday evening was the  date chosen for the Annual-  Christmas dinner and party for  the employees and their wives  of the M and W Logging Company. Hosts ait the Jolly Roger  Inn were. Mr. R. Malpass, who  has just returned from a business trip to Dominica, and Mrs.  R; Malpass, who returned this  week from a holiday in Winnipeg. Winner of the door prize  annually given to one of the  ladies present was an electric  carving knife which was won by  Mrs. Marge Ayton, Porpoise  Bay.  Mother dies  Rev. J. H; Kelly of St. Bartholomew's Anglican churchy on  receipt of news of the death of  his mother in Newcastle, Staffordshire, England, on Saturday, left immediately by air  along with Mrs. Kelly.  During his absence services  at St/ Bartholomew's are being  conducted by Canon Alan  Greene and at St. Aidan's Rev.  Barry Jenks of St. Hilda's  church,  Sechelt,  is  filling in.  Real spirit  The real Christmas spirit was  evidenced in the gift the J.A.  girls of St. Hilda's presented to  the pediatric ward of St. Mary's  hospital. The children who have  to stay in hospital should get  a big thrill from playing with  the large soft stuffed dog that  was bought from the Christmas  spending money of the young  girls.  Tree burning  Gibsons and District Kinsmen  will again sponsor a Christmas  tree burning, in Kinsmen Park,  on Jan. 6, starting at 7 p.m.  Residents of Gibsons and area  who wish to get rid of trees  should leave them at Kinsmen  Park, anytime.

At the end of the program,  presentations were made by  several of the students, representing the student body, to Mr.  William Duncan, custodian of  the school, who is retiring on  Jan. 1. Among the students mak  ing presentations was his grand  daughter Nancy, a Division 12  student at the school.

Facing another year with, the crises of last year continued,  can.hardly give rise in the average mind^ feelings of peaceful  optimism.  We have the economic situation, world wide and not confined  to Canada. Within Canada we have the question of French Canada. The effect of the United States effort in Viet Nam will have  impact on events as they unfold within the.Dominion and we have  British Columbia problems with such institutions as school boards  municipal councils and hospitals, to name a few suffering from  the financial squeeze inflicted by a government calling itself)  Social Credit. It should be remembered Social Credit came into,  being in the Aberhart days to overcome the disabilities of tight  economics.  The Arabs are still looking over the Palestine situation wi-th  Russia and DeGaulle of-France interested spectators.  The struggle for control of the Mediterranean ba&ri continues.  Even if the Suez Canal was back in operation, the valuei of thalt  trade route has diminished. The Orient is now looking eastwards,  not westwards for its commerce.  Closer to home the Sunshine Coast will continue to be a fine  place on which to live. It too will have its problems which will  not be settled by petty bickering or over-emphasized situations.  The Coast News will continue to work in the best inteiiests of)  the community. There will be problems.-Based on an analysis  of elected officials we have on the Sunshine Coast they will do  the best they can with what they have. So to\ one and all a Happy  New Year. /������  # * * '������.-"',  How peaceful was 1868?  Well if one digs back one can discover that President Andrew  Johnson of the United States was impeached for removing Secf  retary of War Stanton and was acquitted by a majority of one  vote. So even in those peaceful days 100 years ago the Unitfcdi  States of America, as it is now, was involved with troubles.  Reconstruction following the U.S. Civil War was on the move.  President Johnson was exercising his veto power and congress  was in the mood to override the vetoes. Later in the presidential  election, General Grant was named president with a 500,000. majority.  A British expedition under Napier was invading Abyssinia  and in Spain Queen Isabella expelled numerous generals but the  revolutionists brought them back.  Isabella fled to  France.  Mauritious suffered a tremendous ~ hurricane, the Hawaiian  Island had volcanic disturbances. Peru and Ecuador suffered  bad earthquakes and on Oct. 21 an earthquake did tremendous  damage to San Francisco.  So ��� with Viet Nam, Palestine, De Gaulle, President Johnson's present troubles, Britain's economic problems, Canadian  difficulties and whatever else you might like to add ������ what's new!  COAST NEWS  20 YEARS AGO  St. Bartholomew's W.A. elected Mrs. J. A. Atlee president  and Mrs. N. A. Haley treasurer.  Reports of the last year's work  showed an active period.  Gibsons PTA organized a  party for the school children.  Various people of the area provided the  necessary treats.  R. T. Jackson attended a motor dealers congress in Vancouver as representative of the  Silver Grill gas station.  Consolidated Brokers of Vancouver were advertising home  site lots in Sechelt at $325 to  $425 per lot in the new Union  Steamship subdivision.  Three sons and three daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Dave Rees  along with their families numbering 21 in all descended on  the Rees home over the holiday period.  10 YEARS AGO  Bruce Redman of Sechelt left  for four years training in  Britain's Merchant Marine  navy.  Gibsons firemen incorporated  under the Societies act are  sounding out council for the  purchase of the old fire truck  for use in outside area.  St. Mary's Hospital auxiliary  reports it had reached its objective for the purchase of a  25 lb. electric dryer for the  laundry.  The Ernie Cartwright home  at Hopkins Landing was destroyed by fire. Mr. Cartwright  escaped with nothing more than  what he wore.  Elphinstone High School  starts its 1958 Centennial Year  Book and asks those with historical photos to send them in.  Efforts to forecast weather  have, improved but there is still  a strong;desire left to get weather under control and there  have been many steps taken  to get closer to a workable  system.  One of the most recent were  some excellent pictures taken  from a satellite which covered  quite ah area of the globe,  showing the cloud cover of a  tremendous storm that covered  an area from Canada to Mexico.  It displayed the cyclonic design of storms generally with  . the cloud cover spiralling out  from a centre and trailing off  into masses  of loose cloud.  Back in 1927 the United Press  in a Washington story from a  ^weatherman in high places  forecast that year would be as  cold as 1816 which was known  as the year without a summer.  For 1927 he forecast frost in  late June and early July.  The weatherman might have  been right but there is evidence  that 1935 was recorded in the  Vancouver press as the coldest  for a quarter century. On Jan.  19 the official ���-.'; thermometer  dropped to 4.3 degrees above  zero, the .lowest temperature  since Jan." 11/ 1909, when 3.7'  degrees were registered. The  known coldest from official records was 2.3 degrees on Jan.  6, 1907. In the 1935 cold spell  traffic was held up 14 minutes  as   the   Granville   bridge   span  froze when lifted toN allow a  floating derrick -to/pass/  In 1936 a newspaper/clipping  dated Nov.   28   explained   that  ' gradual moderation was expected -in the fog which had held  the city- in alight    grip    for  eight days, in/November/; 1936  there was /more of the same  with ferry transportation becoming completely tied up between the mainland and Vancouver Island.  The fog might have been a  menace in/those two years but  back in 1934 all telegraph and  phone wires were cut and no  trams ran for two days as the  result of what was described  as the worst blizzard in the  history of the lower mainland  area. Railway companies were  hunting lost trains by ham  radio. The show turning to  sleet had cut all wires and  Chilliwack and other places  were without power. From noon  Sunday until Tuesday morning,  Jan. 22r some 5.48 inches of  rain and snow 'covered the area.  Off the west7 coast of Vancouver Island a Japanese freighter  sank, the crew being rescued  by the S.S. President Jackson.  In the next.year, 1935 on Jan.  21 something like 17% ��� inches  of snow had fallen in the period  from Sunday afternoon/ to Monday -afternoon. The Elks  Garage on Vancouver's East  Cordova collapsed under heavy  snow creating damage amount-  COPYRIGHT APPLIED KM  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.  Our recent articles on. liens  and the operation. 7 of the mechanics lien act, brought several letters enquiring how the  funds being held back are divided when the total claims are  greater than the amount on  hand to be distributed. Let us  assume the owner of a piece  of land hires a construction  company to build a building  with stage payments as follows:  Excavation $5,000  Basement 5,000  Framing done   ' ' 5,000  Outside & roof, completed 5,000  Plumbing, wiring, Etc. 5,000  Inside completed 5,000  $30,000  The - owner pays .-.he...first  four stages totalling $20,000, and  holds back 15% of this as required by the act, i.e. $3,000.  At/this point, the company goes  broke having not paid in full  its subcontractors, workmen  and material men (those who  -supply building, materials). The  workmen would have to prove  by the evidence of the time  keeper and accountant when  they worked and that they were  owed. The material men would  have to prove by the evidence  of truck drivers, watchmen,  Etc. the exact building materials left at the site and incorporated into the building,  and unpaid for. The subcontractors would similarly have to  prove their claim. All these  proceedings would involve considerable legal costs ��� let us  say $900. Let us assume valid  proved claims as follows:  Wiring  subcontractor $300  Workman   A. 800  (of  which   $600   represented   6  week's wages)  Workman B. $700  (of   which   $500  represented   6  week's wages)  Workman C. $200  (all of which represented less  than 6 week's wages)  Workman  D. $200  (all of which represented less  than 6 week's wages)  Brick supplier $300  Lumber supplier $200  $2,700  POINT  OF LAW  ,' Priority of payment is: (1)  Legal costs of all claimants (2)  six week's wages to workmen  (3) material men, subcontractors and workmen (as to any  ;>a��nouht~ still /unpaid) ��� all proportionately 7    7.  Priority payments are as fol-  Legal $900  Workman  A. $900  Workman   B. 500  Workman   C. 200  Workman D. 200  $2,400  The difference between the  holdback of $3,000 and the total  of $2,400 is $600 and this would  be claimed as follows:  /A. (Portion over 6 weeks) $200  B. (Portion over 6 weeks) 200  Wiring  subcontractor 300  Brick  supplier 300  Lumber  supplier 200  $1,200  ,   These  parties   would  receive  50c   on  the   dollar   or   one-half  of their claim. Final total distribution would therefore be:  Legal   costs $900  Wiring subcontractor $150  A. $600 plus $100'  700  B. $500 plus $100   600  C. 200  D. 200  Brick supplier 150  7      Lumber supplier        100  $3,000  If there was an excess after  all claims and costs were paid  this would go to the contractor,  but this would rarely happen.  Evert rarer would be the excess  after the contractor was paid  and this would go back to the  owner.  GIBSONS WANTED  Hon. Isabel Dawson M.L.A.,  visited the Art Gallery Sunday  in Sechelt in connection with a  request for a grant from' the  Centennial Cultural fund.

It is difficult to realize  that less than a, hundred years ago, you could  [/count on your fingers the known drugs which  could be depended upon to give a positive med-  wm  ical result.  Now the multi-ingredient, hope they work,  mixtures are rapidly disappearing. We have  single ingredient medicines which can positively  cause a desired result. We have drugs which  raise or lower blood pressure. Others permit  ' a diabetic to live a normal life. We can fill any  prescription.  Your doctor can phone us when yon need a  medicine. We will constantly endeavor to keep  abreast of the expanding activities in the field  of pharmacy ��� in this era of enreat change.

Coast News, Dec. 28, 1867.  The provincial government is  evading its responsibilities to  the young people of this province by placing curbs on school  construction, says the president  of the B.C. Teachers Federation  Robert M. Buzza said that  education is a provincial res^  ponsibility and as such it imposes an inescapable obligation on  the provincial government to  provide adequate schooling for  all young people. '���-,���'  Buzza charged that the provincial  government contributed.  to the recent defeat of school  referenda in a number of districts in B.C. "by indicating in  advance that 7timies are tough  and that the government would  not necessarily provide the  money even if the voters approved the projects."  He also said that the government takes refuge, in the statement that all essential costs  will be met, but refuses to define what is essential and what  isn't.  WINS IOOF DRAW  Winner of the Sunshine Coast  IOOF No. 76 draw for a transistor radio was Harold, F. Allen  ..of Gibsons. -  -  a$pj> Jtoi gear  Best wishes to all our patrons��� ��� 7  may your holidays be joyful...  plentiful. .,��� and beautiful!  Dill McCulloch and Les Girls  Lois and Ann   "���  Gibson Girl Beauty Salon  Gibsons  __  FASHION CONSULTANT TO THE 180 SINGER CENTERS IN CANADA,  Elegance in bathroom decor  doesn't necessarily call for gold-  plated faucets or sunken tubs.  It can be achieved inexpensively and simply by imaginative  use of towels.  Today's cotton terry towels  come in many colors and handsome jacquard weaves, making  it easy to have an elegant bath.  You can very the decor by displaying a different set of towels  each week.  For example, if your bath has  pale blue walls, introduce a  sunny note with yellow or gold  towels, with hand towels and  wash cloths striped in the same  colors. Leaf green can be used  in accessories to accent the two  colors.  The same blue bath will take  on a fresh, cool appearance with  a set of sea blue bath towels,  emerald green hand towels, and  white wash cloths. For guests,  replace the solid blue bath towels with a blue floral-printed  set.  Absorbency can' almost be  taken for granted in a good-  quality cotton terry towel. The  best have loops which are closely woven and thickly packed.  The closer the loops, the more  moisture the towel will absorb  without becoming soggy.  For indications of strength  and durability, look at the un-  derweave, which shows best  in the selvage or edges of the  towel. It should be firm, close  and tight for best wear.  You might also hold the towel  up to the light. If light shows  through in tiny, regular pin.  points, the weave is uniform an<_  good.  As for sizes, that's up to you  and your family's needs. Today,  towels range from large luxury  bath size to the smallest terry.  Buy the best towels you can  afford, but you don't have to  pay a high price for quality.  Long-wearing cotton terry towels of excellent quality in high-  fashion colors and styles are  available at medium prices.

We are told (a) that there is  little construction in this area  a present; (b) that we need a  full time inspector.

Among the many young peo  pie returning to spend the holidays with their parents were  Miss Fern Watson, daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Norm Watson,  and Miss Jackie Franklin,  daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norm  Franklin.  Mr. and Mrs. Allen Crane,  both of whom" are school teachers, are moving from the Richards cottage, West Sechelt, to  the former home of Mr. and  Mrs. Bruce Redman,"who";are  now residing in Sechelt in the  apartment over the Chain Saw  Centre.  Mr. arid Mrs.' Phil Nicholson  and   family   have   just   moved  Editor: I have been reading  , newspapers in many parts , of'.  Canada for trie last 70 years and  in them the Letters to the Editor but I have never read a  more constructive and thought  provoking letter than the one in  your last issue written by Mr.  N. Richard McKibbin.  It should give all those who  are on school boards and other  municipal and particularly the  new Regional, District . board  plenty of food for thought. A  copy of this letter should be  framed and hung in the offices  of all these organizations and  read to the meetings held1 at  the opening of the meeting.  I know the great value of figures and the necessity of understanding them, all big businesses are controlled and run by  figures. I was for 20 years in  the employ of the Receiver and  Manager and Trustee in Toronto  who was   always   appointed  (By MARIE FIRTH)  into   their   new   home   opposite  Wakefield.  Mr. and Mrs. Art Redman  entertained at a pre-Christmas  party at their home last Wednesday evening. Among the  guests present were Mr. and  Mrs. D. Hayward, Mr. and Mrs.  Loren Shaw and Mr: and Mrs.  B. Firth.   .  Among the many travellers  to -Vancouver for Christmas,  were Mr and Mrs. D. Hayward,  who stayed with Mr. and Mrs.  H. Mould and joined relatives  for dinner at the Blue Boy.  Mr. and,Mrs.* Lpren Shaw also  visited many friends in the Vancouver area while spending the  holidays with her sister, Mrs.  Doris Richards.  ��� Visitors at the home of Mr.  and Mrs. Jack Nelson, Selma  Park, for the Christmas holidays are their daughter and her  husband, Mr. and Mrs. Phil  Haines, from Vancouver.  v  \  _. ? s\    *.     . _.._  \  \  S^.  by the court, in all large receiverships or failures. My first job  was the largest departmental  store in Ottawa, 420 staff, half  million stock and' 36 depart-  ments.  . I went there on June 23, 1&18.  My job was to get the. business  going as a paying concern so it  could be sold without loss to  the creditors. It was sold as  such on Dec. 9, 1918. Knowing  figures did the trick. I was next  sent to the largest sulphite mill ,  in Canada, at Smooth Rock  Falls in Northern Ontario. It  was a mill with 150 tons daily  capacity, we had forest reserves  to last for 50 years: I arrived-  "there on Sept. 21.' The mill  was only making about 100 tons  a day. When I left in January  1927 we had built a $300,000  bleaching plant ( and were producing 130 tons of unbleached  sulphite a day and. 50 bleached.  Again figures did it.  The Sunshine Coast should be  thankful that there is a resident on the said Sunshine Coast  who has such a splendid knowledge of figures and what they  mean and.let us hope all public organizations like' I have  mentioned use them for future  guidance.  ���B.

Simpkins - 885-2132  RICKLAYING  Seaweed book  The growing awareness of the  sea, and the importance of its  resources, and an increasing  demand for a popular account  of the seaweeds of British Columbia, have been duly noted  by the Provincial Museum.  Newest handbook published  by the museum is a 330 page  Guide to Common Seaweeds of  British Columbia, by Robert F.  Scagel, Department of Botany,.  University of British Columbia.  \ Announcement of the new publication was made by Dr. G.  Clifford Carl, museum director,  who predicts that the guide will  find much use ' in schools and  in the province's growing seaweed industry. It is available  for one dollar from the Provincial Museum in Victoria, the  Vancouver Public Aquarium,  and some book stores.  The new handbook is illustrated with more than 130 drawings,  and the introduction includes  notes on the history of the  study of seaweeds on the west  coast/ uses and importance of  seaweeds, and notes on the collection and preservation of this  bizarre group of plants.  .

The Canadian Medical Association advises that general measures such as warmth, sufficient rest and sleep, and the  avoidance of exposure will do  much more to help, the patient  while the cold runs its course.  People who use antihistamines should remember two  important points:  . 1. It might npt be a cold they  are treating. Many other conditions can cause the same  symptoms as the common cold,  including - allergies, measles  and other infectious diseases.  2. Antihistamines have side-  effects. They cause drowsiness.  Pilots are not allowed to use  antihistamines while flying, and  drivers of automobiles should  be extra careful if they're taking antihistamines. Sometimes  antihistamines     will upset  the  stomach or,- bowel, and occasionally will cause an allergy.  The C.M.A. reports that some  people find that paper tissues  aggravate colds. While rare, it  is possible for the tissue fibres,  certain dyes or chemicals used  in the manufacture of tissues,  to irritate some people. Most  of these people discover this  for themselves, and use cloth  handkerchiefs.  OUTSTANDING ��� YET  STILL PROBLEMS  Canada has one of the bes'  national and provincial park  systems in the world. In spite  of this and the current expansion of this system, a major  recreational problem ��� exists  now and in the future to provide adequate space for leisure  within 75 ..miles���oft all cities in  Canada.  Close spacing of trees in plantations causes lower branches t  die early and fall off which in  turn produces knot-free lumber.  [CROSSWORD   -��, *   -��   By A. C.

DearD  earL/ons:  DEAR DORIS ��� My neighbor has the habit of dropping  in for tea every single day and  bringing her daughter. She is  never invited.  I don't mind her for company occasionally, but I have  oh so much to do, and I haven't time to serve tea. She just  helps herself and . coaxes her  daughter to have more (of  cookies,  or cake).  It sure costs a lot to fill  them!  Imposed On  DEAR IMPOSED ON ��� Better spell it out. You are dealing with two people who don't  think the way you do, and need  to be treated like children.  Next time sit down with  them for tea and lay it on the  line: that your work means vou  cannot serve tea every day;  -that you have a budget which  won't-provide cookies and cake.  That you will give them a special invitation for tea next  time you can manage it.  If they come again un-askerl,  repeat yourself, at the sane  time reassuring them that y~u  like them. And hide the cookies.  DEAR DORIS ��� Having cc -  fided in you, your reply hns  helped me very much, especially to realize that the good wo  have received in the past in.not.  finished. It can be sthe source  of our usefulness to others all-  through life.  Widow  DEAR WIDOW ��� I say amen.  "Remembered joys are never  past. "  My greatest concern is for  those who have never known  the warmth of a close human  relationship; not necessarily  with a member of the opposite  sex, but perhaps with a parent  or sister, or a good friend.  It seems to be true that a  person who has not experienced this cannot fully expro-s  himself or be greatly useful to  others.  Beauty hints  By LYNN CARTER  Q.

But  Henry, well schooled in the old  land in the art of pleasing the  public palate, cheerfully performs this prodigious task nightly.  '. Y /.;���' 777;J7;  When ordinary slug-a-bed folk  turn off the TV on the late-late  movie, the lights blaze but in  the dark up at the bakery on  the Sunnycrest Plaza. Here Henry iii his immaculate uniform,  with white wedged cap perched  at a perky angle, goes about  the monumental job of baking,  the next day's supply of goodr  ies. His movements are siwift  and sure from start to finish"  . .. into the ovens goes the well  kneaded dough in all its shapes^  and sizes, to be transformed into appetizing buns and loaves  . .from the pastry department,  pies, tarts and cookies.  . While all this, is going, ^ph,  cake baitter is whirling in "the  mixers, soon to be individually  iced in mouth-watering varieties, not to mention those special orders for birthdays, wed-,  dings,; anniversaries, each one  a masterpiece of Henry's artistic skill and decorative art.  ' JAnd so through the night; and  long before the first streaks of  dawn the loaves pop out of the  oven, baked and racked ready  to cut and wrap by Edna Naylor on her early morning arrival  Audrey Hinz, the bakers wife,  arrives next on the scene to  load the truck for delivery to  Gibsons-Bakery where Mrs.,Tre-  thewey is ready to open shop,  ttien back for another load and  out to the Village Bakery at Sechelt. Meantime at the Coffee  Bay on Sunnycrest Plaza, Mrs.  Broughtori has already received' her daily requirements.  The last batch of bread put of  the oven, the last cakes, pies  and cookies on the receiving  racks, Henry changes from his  whites .���'���to. ��� street clothes, removes his perky cap and sets  out for home and bed while the  village comes to life.
