These will be painted;  red and will not be removed  during the clean-up process.  on school budget  Facing budget difficulties the  school board has decided to  write the minister of education  requesting an increase' be allowed in the provisional budget,  especially on . transportation.  The budget has been based, on  absolute minimum requirements, is the board's stand.*     ..  This was decided at Thursday  night's board meeting last week-  when discussion on the provisional budget amounting to $1,381-  188 revealed it was apparently  $281,612 in excess.  Last year's budget was $227,-  735. over entitlement and it was  necessary under the school act  to obtain the sanction of municipal council- in the school district for this amount or else  seek a pulblic vote by referendum. Both councils agreed at  that time to help out the'school  board but it was* understood  that both councils did not approve of the onus being placed  upon them to sanction this  amount.  Last year the minister of education allowed a zy2 percent  increase in the basic budget  programming of a 10 percent  increase over the previous year.  The provisional budget is not  a complete budget. It is a basis  for the regular budget which  would be presented later. Last  year's final budget totalled $1,-  878,960 Snd it is expected this  year's budget will be ih that  vicinity,     '-  This is the first year ,that  school boards have provided the  department with a provisional  budget.  - In connection with the Roberts,' qreek^ fire' department request for apltit of landrAt Lock>  yer Road and the highway a  letter was read from D.N.  Docking of Docking & Chapman  Ltd., outlining their proposed  housing subdivisions in that area  and offering the school board a  section of land in exchange for  the school site at the corner of  the highway also suggesting  further consideration' on the  ��� proposed lease of land to Roberts Creek fire department.  The matter was referred to the  planning committee for recommendation and the fire department will be informed that at  present the board can make no  commitment at this time.  The request of Sechelt Motor  Transport for increased waiting  time charges due to bus drivers . becoming unionized was  tabled for further investigation  by the transportation committee.  Boai*d members felt that it was  not up to the board to become"  involved in union matters as  outlined in the SMT request.

The planning committee was  authorized to "investigate the  feasibility and financial aspects  of expanson at Langdale school,  Madeira Park renovations,  band facilities at Elphinstone  and the matter of constructing  the board's own portable classrooms.  Associated Board's of Health  of B.C. asked for board support  in its effort to have school board  encourage recruitment and  training of remedial counsellors at post-graduate level for  children afflicted with disabilities.  Kamloops district board  sought backing for its support  of a resolution to the department of education regarding  the cancellation of referenda.  All trustees will get a copy,of  the resolution for study.  Trustee Don Douglas asked  what was going to be done  about the lean-to addition behind the woodworking shop at  Elphinstone school as it was  being used by secretive smokers and might provide a fire  hazard. The maintenance supervisor reported that the structure would be "eventually fixed  up.  Saturday *ote  helps firemen  Now that the residents of Roberts Creek have shown by Saturday's vote that they are almost 100 percent back of the  new fire department, the department feels it can forge  ahead in its aim for a building  to house the fire trucks.  They hope to raise some money at the New Year's gala affair which they will sponsor  jointly with the Hospital Auxiliary. The Auxiliary ladies know  they are being included because  of their culinary artistry and  their involuntary bent towards  dish-washing and general clean-  ing-up, but they do not quibble  as they, too, are in the money-  raising business.  Messrs.  Ron McSavaney and  Harry  Almond have been appointed    trustees    representing  the tax-payers seeing to it that,  the firemen do not get carried  away in their zeal to build and  maintain ah adequate fire protection service. They will be in  close contact with the Board^of,  Directors   of . the  Fire   Depart-"  ment  and   that  Board will  be  selected by the Community. Association.

The Establishment  You need not look very far today for examples of the anti-  Establishment attitude. It is in front of you all the time, as the  subject of television talks, in the press and periodicals^ and on the  signs that are carried through the streets in large numbers nowadays. -.A .^'AA-:^:': '.-.      '���..������;   -"���:."  It has- become%��*i^able to attack the Establishment without  knowing what the term means and it is dangerous Ho use terms  having a social significance unless you have an understanding of  their true meaning.  Two distinguished residents of Los Angeles, Will and Ariel Dur-  ant, have expressed the danger very clearly in their recent book  The Lessons of History.  "The first condition of freedom," the Durants say, "is its limitations; make it absolute and it dies in chaos. So the prime task of  government is to establish order; organized central force is the  sole alternative to incalculable and disruptive force in private  hands.  "It is good," according to the Durants, "that hew ideas should  be heard, for the sake of the few that' can be used, but it is also  good that new ideas should be compelled to go through the mill  of objection, opposition, and contumely; this is the trial heat which  innovations must survive before being allowed to enter the human  race."  Every word above comes from a speech delivered by Hon. J.  V. Clyne, chairman of the board of MacMillan Bloedel Limited to  the Town Hall of California in Los Angeles.  Excerpts from Mr. Clyne's speech are not used because they  were uttered by him. They are used because no matter who said  tihem they contain a truth and cannot be cast to one side just as  mouthings of a member of the Establishment.  In conclusion, Mr. Clyne said, "What we need today is not a  continuing war between the young and the old, the radical and the  conservative, but, as your president (Nixon) has said ��� a lowering of our voices. We need a new synthesis of conservatism and  radicalism, holding fast to that which is good, rooting out that  which is not so good and replacing it with new ideas for creative  excellence in society. Inevitably the agent for that change will be  the Establishment. In a world of rapid, complex technological  evolution North America will not be competitive without a strong  intelligent and innovative Establishment."  Ethical conduct  The Senate inquiry into general operations of the press has  produced interesting views and one of them was given by R,on Collister, parliamentary correspondent for the CBC who in the argument whether a controlling press council was necessary said Sudan organization might have a role in the area <of ettiical conduct.  However, he doubted whether a council was necessary.  Ethical conduct is basically a question of the journalist's own  attitude, he said. His opinion is valid because even under a controlling organization there would be a continuation of the status  quo with fair reporting vs. other kinds.  James Reston, now managing editor of /the New York Times,  who has had enough experience in the handling of news to make a  seasoned estimate of the good and. the bad* argues that clever ''officials cannot manipulate reporters and clever reporters camnot  really beat the officials. Reston continues by stating that there is  more to be gained by co-operating witih' one another that by regarding one another as the enemy.  Potiit^y iii limelight  With holiday: season fast approaching poultry is more than  ever in the limelight. To make  the most of the festive bird,  and to cook it safely and thoroughly here are a few pointers  tfrbm the home economists of  the Canada Department of Agriculture. ,  Prepare the bread crumbs for  stuffing the day ahead. Three  slices of bread minus the crusts  will provide one cup of soft  bread crumbs. Other dry ingre-  diants may be measured, covered and stored separately at  room temperature. Prepare vegetables then cover and ^refrigerate. Do not combine dry and  liquid ingredients ahead of  time! Pack stuffing loosely into the body and neck cavities of  the bird, allowing room for dressing to expand as it absorbs  the succulent juices. Do not  stuff the cavity until immediately before placing the bird  in a preheated 325 degrees oven  to roast. Also remember to cook  poultry completely in one continuous operation. By following  these precautions you will avoid  the  hazard  of food  poisoning.  Place bird breast up on a  rack in a shallow roasting pan.  Rub with butter or cooking oil.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper and  paprika. Do not add water.  Cover   loosely   with   aluminum  foil .{dull side up) .tucking edges .into pan at end's.but leaving-: open at sides. To finish  browning bird, remove foil near  end'of roasting time and baste  with drippings.  To test for doneness press  thick muscle of drumstick, protecting fingers with cloth or paper towel. If it feels soft and  the; leg moves readily when you  lift or twist it, -the bird is done.  If you use a meat thermometer,  insert it into the thickest part of  the thigh muscle or into center  of stuffing. Make sure that it  does not touch the bone. When  chicken is cooked, thermometer  should register 190 degrees F  in the thigh or 165 degrees F  in the' stuffing. Allow for a  resting period of 20 to 30 minutes after removing bird from  the oven, to make carving easier. This is just long enough to  make the gravy and get the  rest of the dinner on the table.  Warming the dinner and serving  plates will help to keep the  main course hot until everyone  is served.  To make delicious gravy pour  off fat and drippings leaving 3  tablespons fat in roasting pan.  Add 3 tablespoons flour and  blend with fat. Remove from  heat, stir in Vz cup cold liquid  to make a smooth paste. Return  to low heat and gradually add  COAST NEWS  5-1050 YEARS AGO  FIVE  YEARS   AGO  As the result of a recount of  Sechelt municipal election votes  involving Joe Benner and Louis  Hansen, a judicial recount gave  the seat on council to Mr. Joe  Benner.  Bishop Gower of the Anglican  diocese of New Westminster  installed Rev. Henry Kelly to  St. Bartholomew's church parish. ,  As the result of a big blow power outages were reported from  Port Mpllon, Granthams, Gam-  ?"biter and Keats'island and Red*  ' roofs districts.  Hourly sailings during Christmas week were announced by  B.C. Ferry authority except for  Christmas Day when sailings  were at a two hour interval.  10   YEARS  AGO  Sunshine Coast Jobies held a  father and daughter banquet in  the Masonic Hall and a later  event planned is a Jobies and  DeMolay dance at Davis Bay.

The Coast News announced its  subscription rate of $2.50 a year  will be raised Jan. to $3 a year.  Gibsons council decided to  explore the possibilities of a  sidewalk from the Bal block to  the United Church corner.  15  YEARS   AGO  Heavy rains have caused considerable 'damage to the Port  Mellon road and all road equipment wasl rushed to danger  spots to keep it open.  Heavy rain Sunday stopped  the Gibsons Gun club turkey  shoot in the gravel pit west of  the village.  Three hundred persons attended Sechelt Rod and Gun  club's game dinner.  In a heavy election ballot C.P.  Ballentine, Fred Crowhurst and  A.E. Ritchey were elected to  ^Gibsons council.  One of the;big trees ph the  Toyribee estate' at Sechelt was  blown down during a gale this  week.   /. ; v y  20   YEARS   AGO  Eighty year old crippled John  Craigson was severely burned  when be rescued two young  children from a burning home  on the reserve in Sechelt.

David Johnston  Municipal clerk. ANDY  ciii  in  (By SEAN DALY)  To continue with our ascent  to Cuenca, we were soon climbing into the mist and remained  in it for a long way. In the  mountains we followed a muddy  narrow road, nearly obscured  . by dark clouds and dizzle. Wide  buses -,'appea red out of nowhere  oh sharp corners, putting us in  the ditch several times.  Finally we were above the  fog and could see our surroundings, brilliant green fields on  the mountainsides and little Indian villages, whose inhabitants  wore red, orange and scarlet  ponchos;  Soon we were over the summit into a high valley, the central   valley   of the   Ecuadorian  Andes  where  we  met  the  so-  called   ��an-American   Highway  and proceeded, albeit  bumpily  anddustily, south towards Cuenca. The land became more dry  andy-barren near Cuenca.  ; Cuenca, in contrast with Guayaquil; made itself felt as a fairly- austere,  serious place  composed   mostly-;I of   Indians A and^  Peace Corps workers (from all  countries)   and  geologists.   The  Indians  were   there; first,   then  dame the Peace Corps and the  geologists.  Despite these latter  two   groups   one is   still   very  conscious it is an Indian town.  To   a   friend   I   wrote:   "But  now I reside in Cuenca, an Andean; town with a very special  character���a sober atmosphere,  surrounded   by   sparsely   vegetated hills, with a small stream  flowing;     through     town where  the numerous Indians wash their  v.-brilliant   cloflhes, jlight   brj-wn  buildings     of   brick,     cobbled  streets,   quietude   at   night; In  general   it   has   an   earthiness  (numerous brick and stone buildings)   arid   timelessness   about  ;,it." .;.;���������  Timeless- because   the; activities     of     the    Indians     have  changed  little  since  the  reign  of  the   Incas.   They still   wash  their clothes in the stream going through town. Cuenca means  meeting place of streams. Walk-  ' along   the   riverbank   one   can  see, the   Indian   women' scrubbing their clothes on the smooth  boulders   arid laying them  out  on the bank to dry in the sun,  while their children play in the  grass.  Chickens and pigs were  tethered along the stream bank,  accounting    dn    part    for   the  stench.  One    experience  in    Cuenca  stands out especially clear and  ing to take the bus from Cuenca to Machala on the coast.  Local buses in the Andes always seem to leave very early.  They are workingman buses  hence don't recognize tourist  hours. This one was to leave  about 6:30 am. I walked briskly  through the hollow pre-dawn  streets, the silence broken only  by the low voices of a few Indians shuffljtng Hy. Reaching!  the station, a tiny office .still  locked, I retrieved my pack  and stood, shivering and watching the lone passers-by.  As dawn approached,; more  people moved by. A man beside, me who turned out to be  a fellow passenger; stopped a  woman to buy some of her  buns, but she wouldn't sell for  some reason, perhaps because  he only wanted one or two. I  had several buns in a bag and  offered him one. He shyly accepted, nibbling at it at first,  then murichirig it:; all up,. Then  we heard the approaching sound  of-an insistent cough, "yy^y.  Out of the darkness riiater-  ializied a bedraggled .woman  with no shoes and a tattered  dress. And here it was near  freezirig temperature. She staggered down the dark street, periodically falling against a doorway and dissolving into a fit  of coughing which Went on and  on, agonizingly.  But drowning out her coughing, her agony, were the strains  of a church organ summoning  the- Indians to early morning  mass. When two such sounds  can co-exist, when there ca;n  be a sharp contradiction between professed goodwill and  actual practice, something is  very wrong. How does that organ music alleviate the woman's suffering? It merely insults her suffering, makes a  mockery of it.  All over Latinamerica I  encountered  large   elaborate   ca-  thedals containing  devout wor-  dictions. somehow  destroy   the  dictions  somehowe destroy the  beauty of the cathedral and reri'-  dler it an unnecessary, oppressive place. It is infuriating to  see once   proud well  fed  and  clothed people such as the Incas kneeing in rags in an ornate  cathedral, praying to a totally  abstract god to relieve the suffering which his representatives  imposed!  Soon after tihe miserable wo-  vivid. I arose early one morn- man stalgger^d by,   our   wee  new bus arrived and we slowly  began   the spectacular  descent  to the coastal plain.   First  we  passed through the  chilly  mist  bathed narrow valleys with Indians crossing fields to the day's  work and tending cows. There  it  was  very   green  and fertile  and fresh. As the sun arose we  descended,  slowly at first then  more rapidly and steeply. J  ... This was the most beautiful  cross-section of the Andes Fd  yet   made.   From fertile high*  lands to arid midlands and back  to fertile coastal plain. The arid  zone contained a very precipitous,    windy   part,    one   lane,  loaded     with     blind     corners,  around   whicW   we   sometimes  beeped, sometimes not. We did  meet a bus on this section but  beeped in time and we squeezed  by   on   the   inside,   which  was  less demoralizing for me.  This reminds me of my experiences  of Yukon mining  roads  in the mountains near Carcross.  There   we also had; brie   lane  roads clinging toT sheer mountainsides.   I  seem   to   remem-  be   passing; procedure    there,  was   for  the   dowricoming traffic to  pull  off   to   the  outside  .   and   let   the   upcoming   traffic  continue by on the inside. Those  experiences probably helped to  acclimatize me to Andean roads.  At one point on our Cuenca-  Machala trip the driver stopped  the bus where a truck had rolled  over into  a  valley and all us  passengers   filed  out   to   have  a sobering look. I might point  out   the   driver   and   conductor  stopped the bus there  spontaneously-  out of curiosity to discover   the   wherabouts   of   the  truck accident they'd heard of.  In a minute I realized why the   ..  conductor had taken a 6ollection  he  ran   over  to a  little  shrine  and put the money in a hollow  no doubt to propitiate  God to  ensure a safe journey.  Awareness    of  the    crashed  truck probably made  the passengers more resolute in giving  their donations. But the shrine'  contribution didn't  comfort me  -  much, for now we passed the  steepest  part of  all,  dropping  off   sheer,   seemingly   vertical,  down, down to a narrow canyon   and  raging   river.   Steep  mountains rising high above so  that I had to strain my neck  to see their peaks through the  bus    window.   Eventually   we  entered  the   thickly vegetated  foothills, and, following the river, debouched with it onto the  markedly flat coastal1 plain and  arrived  at Machala.   There  I  quenched my thirst in Pepsi and  cerveza   (beer)   and   then  we  continued to the Peruvian border. :���  GIBm  60WER POHir-- Thursday, January 3rd, 197Q  Charles F.

Telephone  once again is taking steps to  make the public more aware  of the need to keep telephone  numbers for safety agencies  handy in the event they should  encounter ari emergency. Your  assistance and that, of others in  the news media in the past has  been most gratifying in;, this regard. ������        .y^'yA"': ' .' /���'���.'���  As you undoubtedly will be  aware, our operator centres be-  holiday season 'and it sometimes becomes difficult to reach  the operator quickly. We have  these centres fully staffed during the heavy Christmas telephone traffic period, but some  delays in reaching the operator  cannot be avoided.  With this in mind, we are undertaking again an advertising  program to help remind telephone customers of this situation. We also are distributing, to  all our customers an emergency-number card on which they  can list the appropriate num- >  bers and keep them near their  telephones. In this way, we hope  to encourage everyone to keep  a list of numbers for. police,  fire, ambulance and others near  their phones for the use in the  event of an eriiergency.  We welcome any support you  are able to provide through]  your facilities as; a s public ser  vice. Your co-operation arid  assistance, I'm sure, will be appreciated very riiuoh by all concerned. You may quote any  part of this letter if it will asisist  you. J. Ernest Richardson .  Editor: Every newspaper  seems to tell its readers that  pollution is a problem that affects everyone and about which  everyone should be concerned  and involved in, simply because  everyone contributes towards  it; Most people when" the subject crops up iin conversation  say that something should be  done about it and then settle  back comfortably and continue  polluting their and pur own en-  '��� vironment.   :       ��� '������"' y'\ '���  The problem of sewage dis-;  posal takes up considerable of  the 'public's time in Gibsons  area and so it should. There can  be ho doubt that in the not too  distant future a satisfactory solution will be found. But I wonder how many people realize  that as much, if not more, damage to our environment can be  caused by chemicals and detergents that are continually poured  into our waters and septic  : tanks.'- -. '" ,'  Here is an area of action  where the ordinary Joe can,  without inconvenience, play ah  active part. Advertisements bri  all the media are thrown at people extolling -the virtues of the  whitest washes, arid, free towels  arid I suppose the public fail  for it. Here is where you can  keep inthe fight against pollution. Forget that junk and look  for a liquid known as a bib-de-  gradable: cleaner. All that long  word means is a, compound  which after use does not leave  any residue and which assists  diirt to return to an organic  substance capable of being absorbed into the ground or water  which can be used over and over as nature intended.  In the near future the Sunshine Coast Environment Protection society will hold a public meeting at which Dr. Gem-  -mel, district public health officer will explain these things far  better than I but in the meantime why not ask for a biodegradable liquid when you want  something to wash clothes or  dishes. There is one available in  local stores known as Basic H  arid I am sure there must be  others. ;  Believe ime-when I say that  1 when you take this step you  will'be helping to a very large  "degree tofkeep;bur waters and  land a little: bit ; cleaner- and  fresher for all; to enjoyj/and all  this at no inconyeriterice to yourself.1 Why not do your bit toward  keeping our beautiful cpastiihe  beautiful?-^ John Hind ?

PIERRE, MP  COAST-CHILCOTIN  This Christmas column comes  to the page by a devious route.  No one knows who wrote the  original message. It was found  in an:old church in Baltimore,,  Maryland, and "was written some .  time in the 17th century.  It was reproduced on a poster  which I bought, not at Christmastime but dn summer, not  in Baltimore but in Yellowknife,  Northwest Territories. And it  wasn't ina church, it was in a  boutique devoted to the sale of  beads and other baubles popular  among the��� teenagers.  They are good words. Finely  honed, and I can think of no  better subject for this season  of the year:  Go placidly amid the noise  and haste, and remember what  peace there riiEiy be in silence.  As   far   as   possible   without  surrender, be on good terms  with all persons. Speak your  truth quietly and clearly and listen to others, even the dull and  ignorant, they, too, have their,  story. '.'���  Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the  spirit;  If you compare yourself with  others ybu may become vain or  bitter for always there will be  lesser and greater, persons than  yourself.

Lome & Eleanor Wolverton  Lloyd & Helen: Yorkston  Memories of Auntie  With the passing, on Dec. 1.  of Elizebefch Hain Drummond,  the community has suffered the  loss of a personality dear to all  who knew her. . ./������'���  Born and raised in Dundee,  Scotland, Miss Drummond emigrated to Canada in 1921. In  1926, she arrived at Gibson's  Landing, to help her brother  James, whose wife had; died  in Campbell River of that year,  Ijeavi'ng behind a flapniilyl of  five. James Drummond had just  taken over the community's  main store, which he renamed  the Howe Sound Trading Company.  While her brother spent long  hours each day in his business  enterprises, Elizabeth Drummond devoted the whole of her  time to the upbringing of his  family. Without stint of time,  and without regard for the loss  of an independent life for herself, she raised her nephews  and nieces with all the selfless  care a mother could have given  them. She took pride in her  family's joys and, when the oldest boy, Ian, died she shared  their sorrows.  When her brother William,  who also had lost his wife,,  brought his sbri^andi daughter to  this community, she extended  her surveillance over their well-  being also to the best of her  powers. .,-.'���.'-v; ��� .���-���  Time gradually freed from  duties of the home, she went  into community activities. There  was the Howe Sound Women's  Institute, the Howe Sound-Dramatic Club, and the Order of the  Eastern Star. '  Atad alsp, gradually, .there  were the growing number of  the community who came to-  know her as Auntie. Even many  of us who knew her from the  time of her arrival here never  called her, or heard her called,  by any other name than this.

With the advent of this plan, British  Columbians wiH have tlie most comprehensive  insurance coverage in North America:  THE TRANSITION PERIOD  The great majority of auto insurance companies,  represented by the Insurance Bureau of Canada,  axe attempting to make the transition to the new  coverage as smooth as possible. These companies  will provide automatic extended coverage immediately for all owners of private passenger vehicles  ���   .-' ���. ���-     ���'.'' ,-' *���  who have liability insurance currently in effect  (more than 90% in B.C.). There will be no need  to contact your insurance representative unleflB  you do not have liability coverage.  In most cases your policy will be automatically  extended to include the required coverage at oo  charge until the renewal date of your policy in  1970. Commencing then an additional premiunij  of approximately 6j�� per day will be charged for  this extended coverage.  The new legislation and the resulting insurance  coverage will help to relieve the serious financial  burden resulting from automobile accidents but  it cannot prevent them - it's up to you - drive as  though your life depended on it.

Thfe is the normal period  between the decree nisi and the  absolute but m special cilrcum-  stances where ��� the public interest is involved, #he dourtl  may shorten it��� or even dispense with it. The parties must  undertake not to appeal the. de-  cisiion.  Q.

A. You may do this but we  don't recpmniend it. If the case  is anything other than routine,.  lawyers sometimes have��� diffaculty deciding the best way of  handling it. If you are determined: to do it yourself, write  to the Queen's Printer, Par;-  liament Buildings, Victoria B.C.  for a copy of the latest amended supreme court rules.  It would take a book to tell  you how to handle everything  that could arise, but yyoa should  find what you need in these  two publications. If divorce is  routine and uncomplicated, and  , the grounds are adultery, the  lawyer's fees would be about  $400 plus expenses��� chiefly private investigators' fees which  could be anything from $150  up. If you are a husband, your  wife's lover musfpay certain  costs to you if you can prove  he knew her to be ay married  woman. If you are a wife, your  husband, must pay certain costs  to yoii and there are procedures  for securing the costs and obtaining alimony before trial,  permanent maintenance, custody of children-, etc.  Q. My lawyer sued my wife  for me for a divorce on the  grounds of adultery. The other  man was named in the divorce  petition but not sued as a respondent. He and my wife were  served with copies of the divorce petition. Costs were  claimed. We gat all ready for  (By a Practicing ^f^wyet)A::.  (Copyright) :  the trial but I had a falling out  with my lawyer. Can I drc�� it  'myself?': ��� ��� V ' :':A ���  A. You can do, but don't. We  are sorry to report that your  lawyer made an error. Your  wife's lover should have been  sued as a second respondent  and the* claim for the costs  should be against him. As the  petition stands now, the claim  for costs i's against your wife  and this would not normally be  successful. Go to another lawyer���'and get it straightened ,out.  Your first lawyer should pay  you some money back if you retained him.  Q. I have been named as"the  other woman" in a divorce ac  tion but am not a respondent.  I am a respectable widow and  'have never committed adultery  in iny life. I have been told that  as no claim for costs or any  thing is being made against me,  and as I apparently am not being sued, I can't do anything.  Isn't this defamation of character? \   /  A. You received bad advice.  You may oppose the proceedings  and appear to protect your good  name. The contents of the divorce petition do not, however,  constitute defamation. If successful, you will be entitled to  be paid certain costs by the  petiitioner.

So much so, in fact, that thousands and thousands of Canadians do so each year.  It is not possible to reserve specific times for long  distance calls and in addition, during the Christmas  holiday season and especially on Christmas day  telephone facilities become so crowded that delays  in completing calls are unavoidable.  You can avoid delay, however, by following the  telephone tips below:  *  m  and you'll be convinced  it gives  the softest ride  Mercury's own balanced dual-suspension, and    '  rubber-mounted automotive-type steering system give  the softest ride and the easiest handling. And Mercury's  distinctive styling'tells everyone you own the best.  See your Mercury Snow Vehicle dealer for a test ride,  and spend a minute on a Merc. You'll be  convinced it's the best snow vehicle ever built.  FIRST Make a list now of the  phone numbers (including area  codes) of the people you plan to call  in distant places this Christmas. Get  these, without charge, through your  ��� operator, or by following instructions  in your telephone directory for  reaching out-of-province Directory  ^siitaiicie Operators by dialing  direct.  Do this now -��� and avoid battling  heavy holidayjtraffic just to get your  nmnbers. Be ^prepared. You'll save  time with your Christmas calls?,  whether you dial direct or assist the  operator by giving her the number  you want to reach.  SECOND Don't wait until Christmas Day itself, when circuits across  Canada will be overloaded, to place  all your calls. Spread them over the  holiday season. Your family and  friends will enjoy your calls just as  much, and you'll be more certain of  getting through without delay.
