fears are
Disturbed by a Gibsons council report prepared by Martin
Dayton^ professional engineer,
on   a   sewage   system   for  the
village which it was maintained would dump raw sewage off
Gospel Rock area and thus
spoil Gower Point beaches,
drew letters of protest from
Gower Point residents. They
were E. H. Burritt, ' Mr. and
Mrs. A. F. Fisher, Mr. and Mrs.
R. M. Whitla, Miss H. Hinder,
M. A. Thatcher and Fred J.
Chairman-elect Fred Feeney,
Gibsons representative on the
Regional board said raw sewage would not be poured into
the area involved. Mr. Dayton,
he said, had conferred with the
pollution control board when
making out his report for Gibsons council and what appeared
in the report had received the
pollution board's concent. Mr.
Feeney added that the pollution
board is opposed to pollution of
Writers of Gower Point letters regarded the idea of raw
sewage being allowed to enter
Straits water as infamous and
Director Feeney said Gibsons
council was well - aware of the
situation. He added that the engineer    had -. observed    proper
procedure   by  "conferring   with-
the pollution'control board,-The,,
problem he sdid must becdrisi-f
dere&un<,relation 4o4c6stisC_The;.
pollution board had agreed on
Gospel Rock but.no raw sewage would be allowed to reach
the waters off the rock. - There
would be a chlorination treatment plant.
Gibsons council some months
ago discussed a possible $750,-
000 sewerage system which
would entail a downhill system
to a low level trunk sewer
which would move the sewage
around the bay to be expelled
in the GOspel Rock area. Owing
to lack.,of financing possibilities
the matter has been shelved.
Director Feeney^: asked why
the letter writers did hot approach Giibsons council with
their complaint. Director Frank
West pointed.. out that they lived outside Gibsons so wrote the
Regional District board, their
only representative organization
at present.    T-'
Leaseholders irkdd
by buckpassing
People living on Indian reserve lease lands are disenfranchised people, Director Adele
deLange, Sechelt's represntative
on the Regional- District board
said when discussing recent
troubles on such leased land at
the Regional District board
meeting in Friday night.
Her complaint was that leased land residents got a complete run-around from the departments who could have offered help during the recent
stormy weather. The Indian Affairs department in Vancouver
said it was up to the Indian
council to act. The Reserve Indians with the aid of a cat machine pushed gravel to form
dikes which were temporary
ed they had a good casef;but
owing to an order-in-council
passed by the provincial /government legalizing the collection of land taxes, he couldtnot
be of any help. Even roads
department Minister Phil Gaglardi said he could do nothing
for such residents because it
was private land, Director deLange reported.
The Regional District board
decided to explore the reason
for such a situation and strive
to get some clarification.
Director Feeney mentioned
that one of the stumbling blocks
Gibsons council found was that
Checkwelp Reserve Indians, just
outside Gibsons, would have
nothing to do with the municipal
ity entering the reserve unless
it was given a share of the taxes plus the lease money.
Chairman Watson speaking to
Director <jeLange's complaint
said there was- a tremendous
inequity and it was a case of
buckpassing. The board learned
that leases for front lots were
$60 and rear lots $50. A lot, was
assessed at $3,700 on. ^which
something like $178 was paid in
taxes. The right, ■ to ^collect .such
tax under '_the\"^circumstances
was     challepged^;by'■; varjojis
speakers.   - ^ W^- 7i -'Hal'

As regards the; Pender Harbour and Gibsons area dump
areas, the board will seek a
speedup on legal work involved.
One- letter from the forestry department maintained it would
take a period of eight months
before a lease could be prepared for the Pender Harbour
dump property. This could also
affect the Gibsons airea dump
and would put a block in the
way of proceeding with the
Gibsons area garbage bylaw if
the land could not be used.
roads department was
to remove fallen trees
across the roads they used. Apparently one huge log was sawn
and removed.
Director deLange maintained
they were disenfranchised people, paying taxes but getting
nothing in return. The land tax
was, collected by the "provincial
government. ,The residents of
the, .jiryolved' area .at Wilson

tional, but the effect of the two-
year 1966-67 ^teachers salary
agreement ^sighed in 1965 was
to leave the Sechelt iteachers'
1967 salaries about 1% to 2%
lower than might have been expected in view of the usual pattern. Sechelt teachers agreed
upon a 6% increase in the second half of the two-year agreement, whereas the provincial
average increase for 1967 was
T¥z to 8%. Subsequently, the
board unilaterally offered a
lV_t% increase to bring the 1967
Sechelt salaries into line but
this offer was declined by the
teachers. , During - the arbitration hearing, the board offered
a5%% increase for 1968.
The 1968 salary scale, as fixed by the arbitration board,
ranges from $3,800 for EC *each
ers to $11,690 for teachers at
the maximum of the PA (Masters) scale. Salaries are generally $100 to $300 lower than those
requested by the teachers. Increment patterns were shortened in the PA and PA (Masters)
columns and now all scales except EC have 10 increments.
The overall increase in payroll costs equals 7.62% or $60--
660. Bearing in mind! the fact
that salaries in 1967 were VAl to
2% low, as explained above,
this reflects a real increase over

Contractors who desire to - examine plains and specifications
for construction of the. Senior
Citizens Housing project at Sechelt will be able to examine
them at the Coast News office
where a set has been placed
by Canon Alan Greene. These
plans and specifications can be
examined but not taken away.
The arbitration board has
handed down its decision in the
matter of the arbitration of the
salary dispute, between the
board of school trustees of
School District No. 46 (iSechelt)
and the Sechelt Teachers' Association.
At the request of the teachers
the arbitration was confined to.'
three matters:
(!) The teachers requested
increases in .. salaries which
would have increased total payroll cost by approximately 10%.
This would have cost about $80,-
The teachers' requests included the introduction of a new PE
scale, not recognized by the department of education, and shortening of the increment patterns
in the EB, PA and PA (Masters)
columns. Requested increases
ranged from a high of 17.6% for
.EC teachers, down to 5.8% for
those on the EA maximum. Salaries would have ranged- from
$4,000 for EC to $11,850 for PA
('Masters) maximum, the latter a 15% increase.
(2) The teachers also requested increases in supervisory allowances, which would
have increased the cost by approximately $10,000, or approximately 40%.
,(3) The teachers requested
that university training bonuses
for attendance at summer
school be paid in September,
rather ^ than in December, and
in the amount of $50 per unit
of credit achieved rather than
in the amount of tuition fees.
This would have resulted in an
estimated 50% increase in payments, costing approximately
an additional $1,250.
The arbitration board's award fixed,, the 1968 salary scale
at a level which brings it more
into line with salary scales in
the neighboring school districts
of Howe Sound and Powell River, although Sechelt salaries
will still be generally lower
than in those districts. This type
of relationship has been tradi-

It is a big step from the small
library started many" years ago
by the PTA'_and the private library run by Mrs.. A. French
in .her home,, to the bright, modern building; that is the result
of the Sechelt Centennial project. The Sechelt Centennial Library was officially opened at
2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17 by Honi
Isabel Dawsori~ minister without
portfolio. '       ';
Mrs. A. Dawe, chairman of
the Sechelt committee, was excited and pleased to welcome
those present at the culmination of her dream, and thanked
Mr. Norman Franklin for the
excellent job he had done in the
building and construction. Also
the Sechelt and Sunshine Coast
Lions who were responsible for
the excellent job of painting the
interior of the building.
This new Library building was
a joint effort on the part of the
Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay.and Redrooffs committees and is a tribute to the hard work put in by
them in raising the necessary
funds. The Sechelt Girl Guides
also worked for this goal and
contributed $60 to the building
Mrs. Dawe then asked Canon
A. Greene of Redrooffs to bless
the event. Following the- prayer-
the cement slab inscribed with
the Centennial motifs and dates,
and containing coins, newspapers, etc., was laid in the cement floor of the entrance by
Mr. Norman Franklin. Chairman of the village council, Mr.
Swain, spoke, gaving credit, to
Mrs. A. Dawe and all the other
workers who had contributed
so much.'
Hon. Mrs. Dawson then cut
the white ribbon across the
doorway    and    presented    the"
heads of the various committees
with pieces as momentos. Mrs.
Dawson said that she thought a
Library an ideal community project that will serve as? a heritage for the young and old alike
in the future.
The Premier and executive
council of B.C. sent best wishes and Mr. L. J. Wallace, as
chairman of the provincial Centennial committee, sent regrets
that he was unable to attend.
Mrs. Dawson extended season's
greetings to all.
Mr. Swain thanked the librarians, the Girl Guides and others who helped to move the
books and set them up again on
their new shelves. Mr. E. Surtees, chairman of Halfmoon Bay
committee, expressed his appreciation of the way the three
committees worked together
and co-operated on a worthwhile
project, and thanked everyone
concerned. Canon Greene, chair
man of Redrooffs committee also voiced his appreciation.
The new building is light and
airy and provides lots of room
for browsing and with the enlarged space, it is hoped to
supply readers with a much
larger selection of good material. An original Emily Carr
painting adorns one wall while
four color prints of old time
sailing vessels give a touch of
color to the opposite wall and
seem very suitable for a village
by the sea. After the ceremony,
all were invited to St. Hilda's
Hall for tea.
The kindergarten classes of
Mrs. S. Bujan at Gibsons Elementary school last weekend
staged a presentation for their
parents and collected $12 for
the Cup of Milk fund.
A petition opposing the. highways department proposed
route for the Gibsons bypass
from Langdale to the region of
Seaview Cemetery is being circulated.
Residents of the North' Road
area between Reid Road and
Sunshine Coast, highway as far
as Seaview Cemetery are petitioning the highways ■ department to reconsider the location.
r As recently surveyed, according to the petitioners, the location line cuts through Elphinstone High school land and Brothers Park. There are now two
road's available, in the area,
Re.d road and the highway with
no - expropriation -probabilities
-The-situation is describee! as
upsetting to" people with property , on the 7 surveyed route
which in one place is reported
to..go;,right, through one house
and cut off part of one other
home...,      - - '■■■:.    :    .
■Ratepayers in" the area cannot understand the rOacfe department taking in school, board
land and part of Brothers park,
which . have had considerable
money. spent on them by taxpayers and Centennial contributions. -.-■■>
The petition when completed
will be sent to "authorities 'in.

The Sunshine Coast; Itegionar
District- board-.also entered the
fray 'concerning the location of v,
t«kniLangdale to the" Seaview
>At-its Friday lii^t'nierting
it was decided to ask the provincial planning board just
where; this road was to "be;; located. Board "members expressed the opinion that they ...did:..
not expect to get much _.eh>7
from that departmfent as>, there
had been ^ no reply from the
planning board to a letter on
another subject, months ago.
It was also felt that placing
the road, according to present
reports, on land between the
Sunshine Coast highway and
Reid road would be detrimental
to the future plans of Gibsons
municipality. Retiring director
Eric Prittie felt that the trans
mission line property, a provin-
cially-owned area already clear
ed would be the moist direct
route to Sechelt that could be
obtained. Director Cliff Gilker
thought it a silly move to divide lands beween the highway
and Reid road.
Gibsons Centennial project-
constructed in Kinsmen Park,
was turned over to the village
council in a ceremony Monday
at the Municipal Hall
Chairman Wes Hodgson accepted on behalf of council,
keys signifying the completion
of the. project costing $6,800.
Members of the Centennial committee can now file for the provincial Centennial grant. The
federal-provincial grant totalled
$2,608 and another $2,000 was
contributed by Gibsons council.
Sometime next year there will
be a public function at which
the Centennial project will be
dedicated for public use. Councillor Ken Goddard is chairman
of the Centennial committee
and took part in the handing
over ceremony on Monday.
The Centennial committee includes Chairman K E. Goddard,
secretary, Don Hauka; and
members James A. Cramer,
Mrs. J. E. Lee, Norman I,.' Peterson, Wes B, Hodgson and
Fred  O.  Feeney.

Weddings   Hall turns  fairyland  HAIG ��� COLERIDGE  The Church of His Presence  at Halfmoon Bay, was the scene  of a pretty wedding on Dec. 2  when Irene Coleridge of Gibsons, and Ronald Haig of Hopkins Landing were united in  marriage, Canon Alan Greene  officiating.  The bride who was given in  marriage by her brother Roy  Ramsay of Winnipeg, chose an  ensemble of cornflower blue  and silver brocade with a hat  of white feathers. She carried  a cascade of white orchids and  pink sweetheart roses.  Her attendants were her two  daughters, Mrs. Bruce Crutch-  field of Quebec City was her  matron of honor,who chose turquoise and gold brocade with  matching accessories and carried a cascade of red sweetheart roses. Miss Kay Coleridge  was the bridesmaid and she  chose ivory and gold brocade  with matching accessories and  carried a cascade of yellow  sweetheart roses. Mr. Fergus  Haig, brother of the groom was  best man.  The reception was held at the  home of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Freer  at Soames Point, the rooms being decorated with cut flowers  and potted mums. The toast to  the bride was proposed by Mr.  Eric Inglis who also read cables  and telegrams received from  England, Wales and Quebec.  For   going   away   the   bride  chose a knitted wool dress in a  shade of American Beauty. Out  of town guests were Mr.  and  Mrs. Graham Harrison and fam  ily, daughter and son-in-law of  the groom;  Mr. and Mrs. Roy  Ramsay and, Mrs.  W. BlOdgett  of Winnipeg; Mrs. Lorna Buch-  oltz of Kelowna, Mr. and Mrs.  Peter Lakes, Mr. and Mrs. Euclid Pelletier, Miss Elsie Walker and Mr. and Mrs, Richard  Laird, all of Vancouver.  Stepping    from    the    wintry  Lower Roberts Creek road into  the Legion Hall on Friday morning, guests were forced to pause  with   exclamations   of   admiration   at   the   transformation   of  the large and festive room. Everywhere were signs and symbols  of the  Christmas  seasan,  their sparkle and color enhancing the tea tables and stalls     ���  Great green boughs, original  poinsettias  and bells were but  part of the decorations and revealed the cunning of Mrs. D.  Marshall's   artistic  hand.   With  another  artistic  hand,  that  of  Mrs.   C.   Beeman,   her   co-convenor, and the able help of other members, the hall- had become a winter fairyland.  On hand to greet the guests  was Mrs. Stan Rowland, the  president '  Those taking part were Mrs.  J. Shields at the door; Mrs. M.  Tihb   and  Mrs.   J.

Not my words; my wife's words,  and I aim afraid that she means  them. Now, I not only hate digging up flower gardens, but I  absolutely refuse to do so; it  is one of those inexact, indefinite jobs that seems to satisfy  the feminine mind but drives  a man right up the wall. Relations are going to be strained  for a while.  Why one plant that looks perfectly good should be ruthlessly rooted up while a plant next  to it, which never amounted to  a hill of beans should be gently  cultivated, well fertilized and  lovingly patted, has always been  a mystery to me. I too could  dig a flower garden if I were  allowed to start in one corner,  digging" everything up as I go  along and replanting after the  whole patch has been done, but  evidently this is an abomination to: the gods of flowering  plants and of women.  Stubbornly I sit in the house  trying .to read a book, determinedly nijy wife starts digging and  patting. Do you think I can settle down to reading? Oh no. My  curiosity and my sense of guilt  drive me outside to watch her.  She gives me a gentle and understanding smile and with a  tiny moan turns a great shovel-  garden  full of soil. Disgruntled and useless I stand there, superior and  creative   she   filLs   the   shovel  again, , bends  her back deeply  towards   Mother ..Earth,    and,  waiting,  for   the   psychological  moment when a car is passing  by, gives a mighty heave. Not  only   the   passengers,   but   the  very  car itself sterns  to yell  "Look  at  that lazy b. . .,   the  poor little woman." Gentlemen,  beware of flower gardens that  need to be dug.  Query grants  Whether the Regional District  board has power to make grants  to organizations as is done by  municipalities was a matter  left over for committee consideration at Friday night's meeting of the Regional District  board.  The application for a grant  came from Sechelt's Chamber  of Commerce. Board members  were of the opinion such organizations were .doing work for  the community and it should be  recognized. There was also the  problem of the two municipalities making their own grants  and through Regional board assessment for administration expenses could be involved in two  donations to the same organization. -.'.

Mrs. Crucil and Staff  May your Christmas be everything -you've been hoping for!  Micky and Doris Parsey and Staff  Marshall Wells Store  The Regional District^board  " should have it's" own voters list.  This was decided at las&t Friday's board meeting when results of the P(ec. 9 election were  presented to the board" by-;Clerk  , Charles Gooding. 77  He Isaid he ahticipated5? there  would be problems with, the  school-'-l��ard'''Voters'','list which  was used along with a property  owners' list but where deficiencies were found provisions had  been m'ade to correct them.  However, he said, he proposed  vto write the municipalities inspector requesting that the Municipal Act be amended to the  extent at least of permitting the  Regional District' to have' the  option of having its own voters  list. He ' added that' He would  also ask that  the intent  of le  gislation    regarding    eligibility  for office be spelled out.  As regards the voters list the  district board feels that it  should be arranged by regions.  The district now contains six  regions from A to F and property owners may hold property in more than one region. Under the school board voters list  only one vote per name is allowed.  Problems that will face the  district board are that there  will be votes on money bylaws  in more than one region and  that these money bylaws could  not cover the same thing in any  two regions. The district board  holds the view that on money  bylaws the property owner  should be allowed fro vote by  regions. He might favor the bylaw in Region A and oppose the  bylaw in Region B. On this basis voting on money bylaws  should be by regions. In the  event of a bylaw covering the  entire district each voter would  be allowed one vote only.  The spelling out of the legislation regarding eligibility the  question pondered is whether  a candidate can be nominated  for one region while he lives in  another.   Under   school   board  regulations   a   candidate   must  reside in  the region  in which  he seeks nomination.  Multiple property owners iri  various regions present an electoral problem which the department of municipal affairs  will be asked to solve.  CROSSWORD   ��� V  ���.  By A. C. Gordon  Mr��.

In this amount there is $11^000  provincial government grants  and', an anticipated . $35,000 in  garbage fees covering 7 rural  areas surrounding Gibsons and  Sechelt from Langdale to Halfmoon Bay.  "Subtracting surplus, revenue  and government grants from the  total leaves a net position of  $41,400. Funds not used by the  end of the year must be car-;  ried over intothe new budiget  and it is expected the carryover is likely to be greater than  the $1,000 mark.  The rural areas will provide  $38,378 of -the $41,400 exclusive  of garbage costs. The $38,000  comes from tax assessments.  Gibsons and Sechelt in order to 7  take part in some of the re-  ��� gipnal district functions are assessed,   Gibsons   paying   $2,016  7and Sechelt,;$1,088. 7   7  7j Expenditure as estimated will  :be - $28,600 for administration,  ;^.i,0O0i for planning, $8,800 for  building inspection, $35;000 for  garbage collection fees and  $6000 for garbage disposal sites  and )maintenance.:       7 ;  The provisional budget follows the plan of municipalities  .who estimate a proVisiphal budget for the next year so they  can carry on untU May. When  the; hew council takes over it  reconsiders the provisional budget to see if it complies with  vwhat they anticipate doing.  Up to Nov, 30 this year's Regional District board of directors had operated well within  the budget, the remaining available funds at Nov. 30 was estimated at $10,236 out of a $39,-  500 budget. Some of this will  be utilized so the actual carryover of funds will not be known  until Dec. 31.   ..'". ,.\ ." ��������� '  Nabob Mincemeat  24 oz.   470  Brussel Sprouts  2 lbs. ���.,__ ____'���  Grade A Turkeys  20 lbs and up ___ _15�� ">���  Japanese Oranges  Box ___________ $1.89  2 Box Bundle  $3.75  No. 5 Sechelt, B.C. ��� Ph. 885-2025  PRICES EFFECTIVE to DEC. 23       ___-,  STORE HOURS OPEN ��^  THURS., DEC. 21 ��� 9 to 9 p.m.        Sfe  FRI., DEC. 22 ��� 9to 9 p.m. I  SAT., DEC. 23 ��� 9 to 6 p.m.  $!*i��i*fW*?*f��i��W$f��?��ff��!��!��(!*!��!��(f��f��(f��T��! ans

Christmas to MARCELINE
FILLER, a nurse at St. Mary's
Hospital, recalls,; as a small
girl in her home in the faraway
Philippine Islands meant getting up at .4 a.m. with her eight
brothers and sisters to attend
the special Mira de Gallo Mass
in the small church at Baguio,
high up in the mountains overlooking the sea. When Mass was
over, the whole family scooted
around the corner to the tea-
shop for a cup of ginger tea
and special rice cakes cooked
in bamboo tubes over live
Christmas recalled houses dec
orated with colored lights and
gay paper lanterns,. .. the midnight Mass on Christmas Eve
and a great big supper afterwards, which was called 'Noche
Buena' — it also meant the exchange of presents. "This I
think is the real meaning of
Christmas," said Nurse Filler.
'The spirit of giving, the giving
of ourselves and sharing of the
happiness we feel on this day
when God gave us His Son."
FRANK SOLNIK is a bit on
the rugged side to play Santa
Claus, even though he would fill
out the bulkiest Santa costume
and he has blue eyes that hold
just a hint of the Old Nick himself. When approached on what
Christmas meant to him, he
looked the reporter up and
down as though he had gone
but 7 of his mind. "If you ask
me," said Frank, "this Christmas business is overrated. Too
much commercialism, too much
food and drink and too big a
hangover, bills and all. Here's
one thing you can quote me on:
Christmas is a week before New
Years when you wish the guy
that owes you money Peace and
Goodwill, then comes January
1 and pow comes the creditors."
Haying said this he roared
away in his car, and as he looked over his shoulder with an
impish expression on his face,
you could almost hear him say
"Merry Christmas to All — and
to all a Goodnight."

Teachers pay
(Continued from Page 1)
normal 71967 salaries 7 of about
5V_; to7 6%; which is just about
the provincial average: Actual
increases range from a high of
13.11% or $1,350 for a teacher
on the tenth step of the PA
(Masters) scale, to a low! of
5.84% or $450 to a teacher at
maximum on the EA scale.
The lowest salary paidj to teach
ers on the EC scale, has increased by 11.76% or $400.
The arbitration board struck
out the requested new PE scale.
The board also left the present
agreement completely unchanged as fair as supervisory allowances are concerned. However,
the present agreement provides
that aUowances^ will be increased annuaUy by the same percentage that applies to the increase in salaries. There will
therefore also be a 7.62% increase in supervisory allowances, costing about $1,738.
The school board conceded its
willingness to pay sumaner
school bonuses at the end of
October and. the arbitration
board confirmed this arrangement. The board refused the
teachers' request^ to be paid $50
per unit of credit achieved rather than the amount of the
tuition fees.
The revised agreement is effective as of January 1, 1968.

Rev. D. R. McLean
FRANK TWAROG and his brother John looked out upon .their".,
early Christmases from their
home near Krakow, Poland
where all the rich traditional
observances of the Happy Season brought back many childhood memories, of the glistening snow, the ceremonial lighting of the Christmas candles on
the eye, the house to house visits with kindly friends and at
each home, the aroma and ^enjoyment of good Polish cooking, and of course the; shouts
of glee which heralded the early
arrival of Santa Claus with gifts
of candies; and goodies on December 6.
They ? also recall • Christmas
carols ringing, out on the frosty
night air, the tree all decked
with apples, wrapped in gold
and silver and brightly colored candies hanging from the laden branches. These are ;the
thoughts of the Twarog brothers
after 20 years in Canada. As
innkeepers they will greet their
guests at the Peninsula Hotel
with the traditional hospitality

LILIAN SWANSON, formerly of
Roberts Creek, now 80, has
many memories of Christmases
past. Two, however, stand iout
above all others, of a Christmas
during World War One, as a
prisoner of war in a German
camp, where she and two other
V.A.D.'s found themselves, after being rescued from the
stormy waters of the North Sea
by the crew of the' German sub
that had just torpedoed their
troopship. The three lone women in this great concentration
of men received considerate
treatment at all times andi not
once were they molested during
their enforced stay.
The other Christmas she recalls was during World War
Two. In a lonely cabin on the
desolate shores of Lake Tagish
in the Yukon and almost 100
miles from the nearest trappers camp, Mrs. Swanson, while
on the Field Staff of the Anglican Arctic Mission, looked out
on the silence of the Arctic
night to give thanks for . the
calm, peace and beauty found
only in this remote spot/ far
from the turmoil of a world
again at war. ;
Saturday evening the adults relaxed and had fun at a party
of'their own held in the Wilson. Creek-hall.

TOMAKO KAWASE — Christmas to this Home-Ec graduate
of UBC and Victoria College,
now teaching at Elphinstone
Secondary School, holds many
memories, the happy farm
home at Lulu Bay with her parents and ten brothers and sisters, of the cruelly uprooted
expulsion years durmg the war,
at Silver Beach, Salmon Arm,
and now with the family scattered far and wide, this Christmas she returns to Ladner, their
present home, for a long-promised reunion.
Tomako still recalls with nostalgia the white Christmases
observed by her family in the
spirit of giving and goodwill,
those Christmas Eves when the
ten little Kawases awaited with
great expectations the arrival
of the jolly old man with whiskers and bulging pack. This
Christmas she has just one concern, that her father and mother will arrive home in time
for the holidays from their trip
home to Japan, the first in 47
years as citizens of Canada.
MRS. PEARL TRETHEWAY recalls above all others that wonderful Christmas when, as a
very young girl, her favorite
Uncle presented her with the
biggest doll she had ever seen.
She and her mother also like
to remember the tall Christmas
tree that stood in the corner of
the living room, all a-glow with
candles, the real kind, ho gaudy
electric, lights in those days.
Christmases of recent years
have meant a happy reunion
with her son and! daughter-in-
law and grandchildren in Independence,  Oregon, where often
as not, she arrives in a winter
wonderland of crisp, white
snow.      - - ■. 7,
Mrs. Trethewey's pre-Christ-
mas   activities   begin  early in
December as manageress of
Gibsons Bakery. Here, midst
all the goodies she gladdens
the hearts of the customers with
the abundance of cakes, puddings, pies, gingerbread Santas,
of sugar and spice and everything nice.

J. Eades held operi  house for their iriany friends  who streamed in during afternoon and evening to congratulate the couple on their 50th  wedding anniversary.  In a living room crowded with  gifts arid scores of cairds the  guests partook of an ample buffet crowiied with a delectable  wedding cake. TAmong the souvenirs of the memorable occasion were letters from Lt.-Gov.  George R. Pearkes, Premier  and Mrs. W. A. C. Bennett,  Prime Minister Lester Pearson  and Hon. Isabel Dawson, MLA.  The most valued of all'was a  photostatic copy of the page  of r the registry of Shottermill  Parish Church/ Hampshire, Erig-  larid', on which was inscribed  the marriage' - of Reginald J.  Eades and! Zoe:M. Ankers in  1917. It was accompariied by a  request for a copy of the1 newspaper account of this 50th wedding celebration.

What was regarded by,the Regional District; board Hasf a  squeeze on the Regional board  to allow the Union Boarxj of  Health the use of the building  inspector as a sanitation official  was termed government free-  loading.  This came put at Friday  night's meeting of the board  when a letter foam Dr. P. J.  Reynolds, district me d i c a 1  health officer informed/, the  board he did not anticipate additional sanitation inspector help  until April 1 and even then he  said he did not think therer .could:  be any cost-sharing between the  Health unit and the Regional  District for use of the district's  building inspector in making inspection's for the Health unit.  Regional board members argued .that with increased build-  ing in the area the load on the  building inspector would be  heavy and that there should be  some recompense. It was suggested thai ah account 'foe''maintained pf the number of inspections! rn the last three months  there  were  IS inspections.  FIRE CONTROL COURSE  Although the 1967 figures were  far above average the riurnber  of acres burned were estimated  at 255,000 and damage to standing timber was apparently much  lower than , 1058, another bad  year in which 2 million acres  were burned.; With the 1967 fire  season still fresh in the 'minds  of fire suppression people the  Forest Fire Control committee  is hoping for a record turnout  to the ninth session of the Coast  Fire Control course, to. be held  at the Island Hall hotel, on Vancouver Island, Parksville, Jan.  9, 10 and 11.

We ��� are riot contending that  our greeting is the only virtuous one displayed but we do  wonder, what those/ placing  these greetings and those that  read them think of when they  read arid write the words "Mei;-  ry Christinas arid a Happy Neiw  Year."  -By-the fantastic amount of  riioney that is spent buying gifts,  orie would think a Merry Christmas meant going into debt just  to impress people with one's  benevolence and prove to them  that you care. No doubt this  interpretation is one that makes  our many store owners merryi  but,' unfortunately, it is also the  one that prevails today in our  society.

Gibsons Public Library  Numberless books have; been,  written about the Second World  War. This one is the story of ���%. ~  man, of:his family, and to an  extent,  of his couhtryi!: during-,  the    ^riod    1939-1945.    Harold-  Nicolson is  an English aristocrat with all the qualities and  faults of his class. His integrity,  his sense of responsibility and  duty, his patriotism, are felt in ���.  every page of the book, unfortunately^ so is his complete lack  of understanding of any other  class but; his own. This lack of  understanding is made all the  rriore baffling by the fact that  he was 'Iiabpr' in politics.' Another  arino^ngt feature  of the  book is his continual use of the  first name of any and all aristocracy, politicians of the higher echelons, and senior officials  of the government.  The above criticisms are not  important. This is a wonderful  book written by an intelligent  man. The language is superb,  once agathypTOving that the Eng  lish are by far and away the  best writers of the English language. Its greatest quality is  its ability to cause total recall  in the reader. While reading the  book the war was as vivid to  me as when it was taking place.  Particularly it reminded me of  the courage and steadfastness  of Britain as epitomized by  Churchill ; during the dreadful  years of 1.40-1943. It is a fine  book.  ing to wars but all embracing  Peace in all of man's human affairs;  When you sit down with your  families this Christmas dinner  and begin gorging yourselves  with our society's abundance,  ; stop right in the middle and ask  yourself how; others .may be  -spending that mpmerit. Think of  the teeming millions of people  all over the world, and even  some of the less fortunate iri  pur own7 .North American society; who are needlessly dying  from hunger and suffering from  disease. Think of the many  peoples involved in political  struggles and picture their  charred and maimed bodies.  Think of the social injustices in  our own society; the. deprivation of our native Indians, the  callous disregard for the rights  pf other races arid religiprisj and  the economic and physical suffering of the aged and afflicted hi our supposedly affluent  society.  Having done this, ask yourself, "Is , this truly a Merry  , Christmas? Can we have a Happy New Year?'' If the answer  is yes, then go back to gorging  yourself, but if it is no, as it  will be to anyone who has a  feeling for his fellow man, then  decide to do something about  it. "��� ;':A.  If we all worked throughout  the next year on getting Peace  on Earth and practiced) Good  Will Towards TMen, the next  Christmas will certainly be a  little more Merry for countless  millions and we would stand a  lot better chance of having a  Happy New Year.  We have all been selif-centred  social hypocrites for too long.  When'you say Merry Christmas  this year, mean it and do something about it if it's not so Merryfort even just one person.

Ahousat Hot Springs are the  mailri attraction of the new  park. These springs are pn land  originally owiied by the Gibson family, residents of the region for 40 years. Recently, former Liberal M.L.A., Gordon  Gibson, arranged, on behalf of  his family, the donation of the  land containing Ahousat Hot  Springs to the people of British  Columbia for park purposes.  The Gibson family has donated  42 acres. Crown; land of 308  acres' has been added.  The park is adrriirably suited  for development as a marine  park with its typical west coast  setting of protected inland waterways and semi-exposed ocean  beaches.

MAINH-)  The night was clear, the air  warm, smelling slightly of the  jungle; a good night for the advent of a first born. The young  woman, oriental and petite, carried her pregnancy with the joy  and beauty usual to this, the  greatest of all phenomenon.  Quietly, yet proudly, she surveyed her jungle hut; tidy inside, well-swept outside. She  had a home for her child.  In the distance the guns rumbled, meaning little or nothing  to her. They had been rumbling  for so long, rumfoling for so  manyyears. Suddenly the rum  bling changed to a mighty roar,  a crash, and the jungle hut was  no more. She no longer had a  home for her child. And once  again a mighty roar, a crash,  an_. the young woman disintegrated as a withered leaf, the  lifeless child flung from her  very womjb.  The serried ranks of angels  ordered by the Lord to attend  the birth of every child placed  the'r wings before their faces  and wept, then raising their  voices to Heaven, cried in agony "Almighty Everloving Lord,  did You make a mistake.when  you created man"  ^^hOiOH^H^HtiOiOiOH^OH^O^hl^^iOiO^iOHM  if  AVERY      ^cw.^;^^-^;  MERRY '   it;  CHRISTMAS: TO ALL'     !  ���'   Staff -  *  SUNSHINE COAST SERYICE  Wilson Creek  ALL OUR CUSTOMERS  A wish for a  happy Yuletide  with trimmings.

Scotland is a small country  compared with Canada, and  her sons and daughters who  achieve distinction are known  by name and fame from the  Shetlands to the Borders. When  an International is played at  Edinburgh, in these days of  speedy transportation, its followers, as many women as men,  converge from all airts on that  city's famous Murrayfield  ground. I was at George Watson's College there, and it has  supplied many players for Scotland's teams over, the years,  and its former pupils' club, the  Watsonian Club of Edinburgh  doesn't need' a Rugby herald. It  is something new for it to put  on a ball on an occasion like  this, but that is not the point  that intrigues me.  The tickets are priced at ��2-  2-0. This doesn't mean anything  to us Canadians, but to a Scot  it spells guineas, with the corollary that, it is a posh affair,  involving evening dress or a  kilt. But, on my\ invitation in  heavy type is this notice:  "In view of recent legislation  it has been decided to provide  transport by coach at no additional charge, to and from In-  gliston. Coaches will leave from  the carriageway in front of the  school commencing at 8:15 p.mV,  Last coach 10 p.m. Pariring  space for cars in Junior Quadrangle. Coastes return from In-  gliston as and when required  from 1 a.m. onwards."  The picture now gets into focus. As we know, breathalyser  tests were recently instituted in  Britain, and it is now a case of  "Ae toot and you're oot." The  above-quoted paragraph is a  pregnant utterance, the . result  of measures provided to circumvent   this   legislation  by   some  Jf or tint u tt* a  feon tegiben!

Watson's College grounds are  in Colinton, a southern suburb  of Edinburgh, and the present  college, built some 30 years  ago is a gracious building set  in green lawns with ample park-.  ing, and quite up to anything we  have in this  country.  So,  you  and even one Rolls Royce be-  can imagine the gathering of  the Watsonian Clan, which includes a fair slice off the top  of the, cultural, medical .municipal and business life of Edinburgh and further out.

Frank and Dayle  Nevens' Television & Radio  Gibsons  3s (By C. G. WEATHERH_L)  Just lately I went to our local theatre and, watched the  film Hell's Angels on Wheels.  This film was no different from  any of its predecesisors, Wild  Angels, and Devils7Angels:- The  main attractions of thejse films  are  violence,   raw  action,   and  as  sex. There was ho true plot to  the film; the story was loose  and haphazard.  Many adults and younger people I have spoken to on the subject of this type of movie say  they dislike the ideas expressed  in these pictures. This is their  personal opinion which they are  ���utd a&UttcUutt fcocC c/iee%  NcMYNN REALTY & INSURANCE  Mrs. Do Wortman��� Jack Warn  7 Gibsons  entitled to have. Some say, however, that going to see this type  of movie is just a way of killing  time by sitting in the theatre.  This, I feel, is wrong.  Any film which I go to see I  consider as an expression of  art  and  education.  Art  is  the  , perfection  of  an   ideal  image.  7 A film1, despite what it may por-.  tray, is^ still; striving to ^pre_erit  an ideal image of what some  thing or value represents. A  portrait can be of any subject,  ; from a beautiful garden to an  . old trash can, but it still represents the artist's image of  what the ideal garden or trash  can should look like. It is his  ideal image of whatever object  he is portraying. This ideal  imagery can be considered the  main idea behind a film. In  other words, the ideal image  of Hell's Angels, or any subject  a film is trying to portray.  Many films can become rather  stale and camp because they  lack realism. A typical example of this is the beggar-in-tailored-rags effect found in many  movies.   To   express   the   true  mood arid characterization in a  film, a person must be willing  to present the film in the most  realistic form possible. The  Hell's Angels have a known  reputation for violence; therefore if the Hell's Angels attitude comprises the main theme  in a film, one can expect a  great deal of violence depicted  in it.  When I say a film is educa:  tional, I say this because any  experience is educational. I  don't wish to condemn or recommend any film. I won't tell  anybody to go and see a movie  because I think it was entertaining. I will say, however, go  and see a movie and form your  own opinions. The film was born   stage   which  is v considered  from the same ideas of the live   art. Therefore a film is an  an  art.

When  I was> in Edinburgh a few years  ago, the Alexanders had most  of the tour buses, and the Alexanders or their fathers were at  school with me, and it can be  taken as certain that if this,  company provides the coaches  on this occasion, they will be  at least as shiny as our latest  Sechelt bus.  The ball is to be held at In-  gliston, some eight miles out of  Edinburgh from the College.  This is the sit�� of the Royal  Highland Agricutural Show  ground, where every year Argentine and American millionaires pay tens of thousands of  pounds for Scottish cattle, and  their proceedings are opened by  royalty. There is a reception  pavilion and ball room there  much larger than at the College, and a bar commensurate  with Highland thirsts, which  there isn't at the College.  The   caterers,   J.   W.   Mackie  & Sons, have that fine restaurant facing the Castle, half-way  along   Princess   Street,   known  to every Canadian visitor. Buzz  Moore, of Vancouver, who captained the Canadian rugby team  which visited Edinburgh a few-  years' ago, told me that the* evening after their game, the Scottish Rugby Union had a party  for  the   Canadians   in  the  upstairs dining room at Mackies.  The seating arrangements were  that one Canadian was put between two Scots. At a pause between the finish of the dinner  and the start of the party, with  nice  timing,   the  lights  in   the  room were turned off, the window  draPes   drawn  back,   and  the flood lighting on the Castle  was turned on. This had been  done only once or twice before  for very special guests of the  City. It can be taken for granted that the purveyors of the liquid refreshments will rate as  high.  Every good time comes to an  end, and speculation turns on  how these revellers will get  back to the college, where they  taught us long ago that "Facilis  descensus Averni, sed redire,  hie labor hoc opus est," that is  to say that it is easy to get to  the ball, but the job is to get  back.  That was what was  exercising   my   wife,   a   daughter   of  Edinburgh,   whose   query  was:  "What will they _a with them  when they get them back to the  College?" I pointed out to her  that this braw new college has  a  full-sized  swimming  pool,  a  large   cafeteria,   and   a   small  hospital,   and  as   an   adequate  number of the most distinguished doctors, lawyers and ministers in  Scotland will undoubtedly be  among those  present,  those who need it will be dunked, pumped out, cautioned and  cossetted and fed with a breakfast of baps, oatmeal porridge,  bacon and eggs and black coffee, and sent on their way fit  to pass any test, and they will  "no be wauchlin' hame."

That so many incumbents should have failed in their  efforts to be re-elected -would  seem to indicate not necessarily  personal disfavor, but rather a  deep concern on ithe part of taxpayers over the manner in  which/the^r affairs have been  administered, resulting in continually  rising  costs  of  public  ]  .. it won't fasten you  Published in (he Interests of Safe Driving by the  following Sunshine Coast Service Stations  and Automotive Dealers .

A look  at a few figures will show that  such concern is well founded.  In the matter of school costs,  comparing 1567 costs: with those  for 1962 (based on S.D. No. 46  budget figures) shows:  ���That student enrolment increased by 22% over the five  years.  ���But Instruction costs increased by 80.2% over the  same period.  Administration costs increased by 136.3% over the same period.  Capital and debt charges increased by 111% over the same  period.  All other costs increased by  97% over the same period.  Most , of these increases occurred in two years, 1966 and  1967.  ."���'������' .:'-:;;'.77.  And, according to the Dominion Bureau of Statistics the average cost-per-student in Canada in 1967 was $597; the cost-  per-student in S.D. No. 46 in  the same 7 year is $792; i.e.  f 32.7% greater than the Canadian average.  S.D. No. 46 figures indicate  disproportionate increases in  costs ias compared with the enrolment increase. We are informed in recent news reports  that S.D. No. 48 has 20.3 more  teachers than entitlement pro- 7  vides; it is also reported as  haying the lowest student/  teacher ratio in the province. ;;  -Despite these factors, which ij  would seem to indicate a better than average provision of  staff and facilities, many aspects of the educational process and its results seem to be  questioned, judging by recent  conference reports.  At the municipal level plans  are considered for sewage<iis-  posal systems to cost $300,000  and upwards, to be paid for in  a district with a higher than  average prpportion/of pensioners*, andvothereiimfted by fixed  retirement incomes; also a district reportedly having a relatively high per, capita ratio of  public welfare recipients. It is  worth noting that West Vancouver, probably the most affluent community in B.C., has only  recently felt able to finance  such services, and then only in  the central core of the community,; where population density is several times higher than  in Gibsons. How, 7theny can the  ratepayers of Gibsons hope to  sustain payments for such a  plan at this time.  Concern over all these matters has been growing ��� and  the results of the current elections would seem to indicate the  public response ��� a response  that the newly constituted village commission and the school  board should consider carefully,  and review their future plans'  accordingly. The elected representatives have a duty to their  fellow citizens to see that essential services are^ provided  in an effective manner, and with  much less "administrative empire-building" than has been  evident in the recent past.  --N.

Canadian Automotive Trade  reports that the committee, head  ed by Hamilton's j>olice chief  Leonard Lawrence, produced  statistics showing that 76% of  all stolen cars were left unlocked and that 43% had the keys  left in the ignition. Another 3.4%  of stolen cars had the keys left  in the car, although not in the  ignition ��� under the floor mat,  over the sun visor and such..  places. ' .   *""  Some 40% of all car thefts  were accomplished by circumventing the ignition switch, the  most popular method being to  cross wires behind, the instrument panel, which, is why manufacturers are introducing theft-  deterrent switch assemblies.

With the nation's fire losses  running above those of a year  ago,' the Canadian Underwriters' Association asks householders from coast to coast to use 7  care with fire during the Christmas holiday season.  "Fire prevention is a job for j  everyone  in the family,"  said t  W..-W-. Owen, general manager  of the -association. ���'Statisticians :  have  found  that-every  fourth :  fire   in  Canada   is . caused  by  carelessness;! and   if   we   can r  eliminate  these  needless' fires,������')  we can reduce our fire toll by I  25 percent." Fires this year are \  expected to cause property loss- 7  es to reach hearily $154 million  and fire  deaths this year are J  expected   to   exceed   570,   Mr. ;  Owen added. \  "This heavy toll in lives andimproperly can be deduced if we  all join in preventing fires," he  added. 7  Heating and cooking equipment, Mr. Owen pointed put are  the leading causes of fire, responsible for every fifth fire in  Canada. Particular care with  such equipment was urged by  Mr. Owen as a good fire prevention step.  To further prevent fires,  matches and smoking, the second largest cause of fire, should  be recognized and treated as  the serious hazards they are.  The third largest cause of fire  Mr. Owen added, is misuse of  electricity and faulty electrical  equipment. The number of fires  in the nation can be sharply  reduced by making sure that all  electrical equipment in the  home is in good repair, he declared.  &����tgi��e?��wee��s^^  from  Guy and May Winning  THE WINNING POST  Ole's Cove Resort  R.R.1.

The new stamp, a continuation  of a Wildlife Series which will  be completed within four years,  marks the debut of Martin Glen  Loates as a designer of Canadian postal issues. Mr. Loates,  a resident of Willowdale, Ontario, has won praise from naturalists and laymen alike for his  precise artistic interpretations  of nature, painstaking research  SzZZZZZZZCrackle      . hey! See the light.  You'll find ELECTRIC-CONTRACTORS fast in the  YELLOW PAGES. Where your fingers do the walking.  ff*v v^   ^ ���vrj. v**1.  of all forms of wildlife. A love  and a dedication to careful ob-  sertvatioris in the naturaly. environment of his subjects have  been important factors in his  largely self-taught skill. Mr.  Loates, a native of Toronto, was  born in 1945.  Frequently referred to as the  Canada * Jay, Whiskey Jack,  Camp Robber or Moose Bird,  the Gray Jay is a bird! of the  coniferous forests of North America whose breeding grounds  are in a broad unbroken geographic band extending from  British Columbia and the Yukon to Newfoundland. The adult bird usually attains an overall length of 11" to 13", larger  than a robin and reminiscent of  a huge overgrown chickadee.  The juveniles have smoky black  plumage.  Many folk-tales and superstitions have grown up around this  bird which depict it as. a sly  robber, though not altogether  bad, and a trickster able to  transform himself into a shape  most appropriate to suit the occasion. Haunting lumber camps  and trappers' cabins, it was  said to be the spirit of departed  woodsmen, and in the northern  forests the Indians were so superstitious about it that they  were afraid to look at the nest  and never molested it'.  The bird is extremely tame,  bold and verv curious. It will  enter a tent or cabin in search  of food and frequently carries  away items which are inedible.  In spite of its impudence, it is  a retiring bird and vanishes inevitably as the borders of permanent settlement encroach upon its haunts.  There, that does it. Tree's all trimmed. Presents are wrapped. Anything else?  Ah, yes-one thing. Here's wishing you a very merry old style Christmas from  all the folks at Molson's!  01 Q Si u 1 e  l & H SWANSON LTD.

We have received questions  about the rights of parties to  force their neighbors to contribute to the cost and upkeep of  a boundary fence.  There is, in B.C., a Line  Fences Act. This provides for  the appointment of three fence  viewers. These persons may  view: the property concerned  and hear the evidence of the  parties and their witnesses (under oath) and may order the  construction of a fence, the  type of fence, cost, etc. If there  is a fence in existence, they  may make a similar order regarding its repair. Each party  may apply for the fence viewers and each party must pay  one-half the cost of the fence  Of  OF LAW  of -/v f^racHcing oLawysr  or repairs. There is a provision  for an appeal to the courts of  the fence viewers;' decision.  To start this process any person concerned should write to  the Minister of Agriculture, Parliament Buildings, Victoria,  and ask for the appointment of  fence viewers for the lands in'  question.  The act does not apply to  Jands within a city, town, district or village ��� that is, municipally organized territory.  To fin_t out whether a municipal corporation has a similar  act, it is necessary to consult  the charter or act incorporating the particular municipality.  Some municipalities have such  powers but ha<ve not passed any  bylaw on the subject. The legal  department at the muncipal or  city hall should be contacted.  It is customary to enter into  a contract providing for the  sharing of the costs of a fence  and the erection of same right  on the boundary, that is, one-  half on each party's property, if  this cannot be agreed upon.  In areas not covered by the  Line Fences act, the following  laws apply. You cannot erect  a boundary fence partly on your  neighbor's property. You cannot force your neighbor to pay  part of the cost. You may erect any fence you like ,6n your  own property ��� subject to your  neighbor's right not to be deprived of access to light and  air.

In such cases where an allergy is identified as one the patient cannot treat himself b^  avoiding the cause, the doctor  will determine the severity of  the allergy. If it's mild, then  medical treatment with drugs  and with, desensitization by in-,  jection will minimize the symp-;  toms and keep the condition un-7  der control.  Where an allergy has continued for some time, it is important  to seek medical advice, says  the Canadian Medical Association. The doctor will take a care  ful history in order to determine  if possible, the factor or factors which may be responsible  for the allergy. If he can determine the sources of the trouble  he will, of course, try to eliminate it from the patient's environment.  Some patients with allergies  are cured, but many, especially  those with a strong family history of eczema, hay fever or  asthma, may have trouble from  . time to time. They may have  trouble with skin, they may get  hay fever, they may wheeze  from time to time, and this may  go on for years. However, these  symptoms may be controlled by  treatment prescribed by a doctor, or minimized by injections  designed to desensitize that patient so he can withstand the  irritating effect of substances  which cause the allergies.  The C.M.A. says it is very  important not to use the over-  the-counter remedies for eczema, hay fever or asthma.  Sometimes the treatment can  be worse than the disease if it  is not carefully prescribed by a  competent physician.  anHHHnuiiuMiuiuiui'uiiiiuuiiiiimiiiuinHi'AHiniiuiiinintt*,  AN ANGLICAN CHANGE  ���-:$_?����"������ ���'���'���::;&?---       .���-���  '"���  The   g row i n g/7:��cumenica_  movement may produce a radical change in the way clergy  are trained in Canadian seminaries.   This  inference,   coupled  with   the   widespread   development   of   departments  of   religion in  universities,  points  up  new possibilities which are being closely studied in Anglican  circles. In the light of criticism  of theological education in Canada,  many church leaders believe the  time is  ripe for cooperation with the religion departments  in  the   secular  universities.     Such     departments,  free   of    denominational   bias,  would permit the study of religion  in its  broadest aspects,  and might provide some of the  academic courses necessary for  students intending to enter the  ministry.  aiuuiuiui\iunnuimnmwwnmunnuiimnu(umimmumnimu��  Approval of the first rural  development project to 'be implemented inBritish .Columbia  / has been announced by the  Hon. Maurice Sauve, federal  minister o�� forestry and rural  development, arid the ���'/���'Hon.  Frank Richter, British Columbia minister of agriculture.  The project to be known as  Old 'Ks'an, will be undertaken  within the recently designated  Bulkley R u r a 1 Development  area, which is located in Central  British Columbia between Burns  Lake and Cedar vale including  the rural areas of Hazelton,  Smithers, Telfcwa, Houston and  Burns Lake on Highway 16 between Pringe Rupert and Prince  George.  Initial research studies have5  indicated that there is a significant number of rural families  including Indians, in this area  with less than $3000 gross annual family income, and therefore this becomes the first area  in British Columbia to be designated under the rural development section of the Federal-  Provicnial ARDA agreement.  The initiative in this project  came from the village municipality of Hazelton and the Indian Band Council dealing with  a proposal to expand the existing Skeena Treasure House Museum, which has shown good  prospects as a tourist attrac-  l tion in this area with ability to  provide for increased employment and income with the Indians and others'working together  in the interests of the total community. 7 .  After review by various federal, provincial, municipal and  Indian Band council groups, the  total Old 'Ksan project, as approved, includes:  (a)   the restoration of the his  Feeler Bread  MR  WAF  20 loaves or more  Gel together with a friend  If you haven't storage room  in your freezer for this 20-  loaf offer ��� go in with a  friend and each take 10  loaves at a saving of 2 cents  per loaf.
