Speaker for the occasion was Hon. Isabel Dawson,  minister without portfolio who  hasdone a considerable amount  of work on behalf of senior citizens.  Mrs. 3.: W-irwick,. president of  the Women's Institute and Mrs.  Thor Christiansen, treasurer,  presented the Kiwanis with a  cheque for $2,000; Mrs. Bernice  Chamberlin presented a cheque  for $1,500 from the Fall Fair,  board and William Malyea presented a cheque for $1,600 from  the Farmers' Institute. Mrs.  Chamberlin, Mrs. George Kerbis and Mrs. Alex Davidson presented a cheque for $236 from  flower sales during the summer. Members of the Backwoods  Brass band including Tony Baker, Lance Ruggles, Dave Fromager, Kevin Star, Mark English and Roland.-Kerbis,- turned  back to the Kiwanis the $60  cheque received for playing at  the Kiwanis pancake supper in  August. ' ' ~"  Dave Johnston, Kiwanis president and chairman of the meeting offered thanks from the club  for the donations and expressed  a sadness at the disappearance  of primary institutions in this  area. He was referring to the  demise of the Fall Fair organization and also . the Women's  Institute which has decided to  fold up. -Both made excellent  ��� donations.  Hon. Isabel Dawson M.L.A.,  spoke on her work connected  with elderly folk as well as  young people, recounting her experiences during her travels in  Canada and other lands.  Discussing senior citizens jun-  its in British Columbia she advised the club to get its application in to Victoria quickly. She  felt sure there would be co-operation with government officials.  Housing was a major problem  for senior citizens and there was  no reason why they should be  kept away from this area  through lack of facilities. Self-  contained units were easiest to  Alderman defends  Regional board  - * The, public - appears.- t_oT be-, able.  to get more information about  'Construction Aggregate operations in Sechelt area than does  the Regional District board, Aid,  Norman Watson informed Sechelt's ? municipal council at-Iast  Wednesday night's meeting. 7 \,  Reporting to council on Re-  gional District board business as  Sechelt's representative Con the  board he said the company feels  it is dealing witH two sets^of  people, the Indians and the government, and they are not really concerned with the Regional  7board..7     --' .-'-X^x  The Regional District board  had no authority on the Reserve.  The band can do as they see fit  and he added they are entitled  to their own opinion. The minister has final control ��md the  public can put pressure oh hinci.  He added that all the people  are not against the project.  To conclude he said the board  would not rubber stamp anything.  Aid. Harold Nelson reported  that clearing was progressing  on West Porpoise Bay road, arid  Aid; Joe Benner said Ken Pearson of Davis Bay was clearing  | brush at the airport on a $300  "contract.   7 ;  Aid. Watson did not like the  clerk's reply to Mrs. G. S. Jones  'apologising for the phone call  made by Aid. Watson. He said  the apology should have been  made over the felling of the  trees. However he did not want  to make an issue over it and  dropped the matter.  Council's enquiry over the situation of Lot 1472 and adjacent  area held in reserve by the  . lands department for the village,  resulted in a letter informing  council that Dec. 15 was the expiry date when timber sale  rights expired.  The letter added that the lands  commissioner would consider offers with plans showing development proposed for the area.  Council regarded this letter as  being practically the same as  .received on first application  years ago for a reserve on the  . area. Mayor William Swain said  Sechelt wanted it as a future  park.  Council was   advised  by  the  Regional Health office that its  _$100,contribution towards thejcu;>  bella campaign should be'paid  directly tp the-medical supply  house.  Andy McKinnon wrote regarding possibilities of a dog pound  in Sechelt. Mayor Swain said  Sechelt was hot yet large enough  for a dog pound: He was referred to the SPGA in Gibsons.  Aid. George Flay regarded the  former government wharf as a  menace and wondered if departmentof transport officials would  be able to do something about  it before a south-easter took it  out. '.He: brought the matter up  on a query about the safety of  the gasoline pipe lines that are  tied to-the wharf7 He was informed that if the pipe line  broke on the wharf there would  be no leakage as they are used  only for filling storage tanks  and are closed after such operations. Enquiries will be made to  the department of transport.   ,.  to edi  The following letter dated Nov.  10 was received from the Sunshine Coast Disposal Services  Ltd. for publication:  The Corporation of the Village of  Sechelt, Sechelt, B.C.  Dear Sirs: ;  We would like to offer our garbage disposal services to the  Municipality of Sechelt, with  facilities as follows:  1. 2 standard cans per piece  of property.  2.

She learned  that the Kiwanis venture into senior citizen .  housing would involve the self- ,  contained plan.  Mrs.   Dawson   had  words   of.  praise for the donors of cheques  to   the   club   and   particularly'  thanked the   Backwoods   Brass;  band: members for their donation and commended the mem-:  bers of that band for restoring'  the faith of the elderly in the  activities of the young, by such  an action.

'���; The Sunshine Coast Lions Club  hosted 100 members of the Senior Citizens association, Branch  '69, at a Christmas Dinner Sunday evening, Dec. 6 in Sechelt  Legion Hall. Chuck Rodway,  L'ions president, had warm words  of welcome. Canon Greene pronounced the blessing, then the  traditional Christmas dinner of  turkey and trimmings was served piping hot. Each lady was  presented with a beautiful corsage. Sofe music accompanied  the meal. The hall was bright  and cheery with Christmas decorations.  -After the dinner, Ernie Graves  master of cermonies, delighted  with his skillful and clever lightning cartooning. Mr. Dave Hayward, accompanied at the piano  by his wife, Mrs. Eva Hayward,  sang Shepherds at the Hush of  Evening, which received great  applause.  Jack Gibb, as Santa Claus, entered to the strains of Jingle  Bells, and every member received a bag of candy and fruit.  Mrs.'Madge Hansen, president,  presented a cheque for $50 from  the Senior Citizens Association  to the Lions club, to be used for  their charitable projects.  Old familiar carols followed,  conducted by Mrs. Dorothy  Stockwell and accompanied by  Mrs. Ruby Hatcher. Finally a  most enjoyable occasion, with  good food, good entertainment  and good fellowship, came to an  end. Many thanks were offered  the Lions club for their kindness  and generosity.  ing for. a water system for the  area;  The delegation appeared before Gibsons council at Tuesday  night's meeting and obtained information that water engineers  would be in Gibsons Friday and  will report on the Gibsons  Heights area water possibilities.  Mayor Peterson explained the  project would require 4,000 feet  of 6" pipe, (plus a pressure  pump) which would be expensive. Two inch piping could be  hooked on for convenience.  Such a system would be temporary to serve 30 houses and  could not be extended to supply  the whole area. Mayor Peterson  said the future Reed Rd. supply  would involve the Regional District. The village takes in only  the south side of Reed Rd.  -Mayor Peterson said the request was reasonable. He added  he expected a final engineering  report on Gibsons Heights by  January.   He   added   the   Pratt  Beef prices  will be firm  The Economics Branch. Canada Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa, food outlook for December:  PORK: Supplies will be plentiful with prices remaining at  low levels.  BEEF: Prices may strengthen  some.  EGGS: Plentiful supplies at  steady prices.  POULTRY MEAT: Broiler and  roaster chicken will be in plentiful supply at moderate prices.  Turkeys of all weights and geese  will be in adequate supply at  - firm prices.  CHEESE: Prices for cheddar  cheese are expected to increase,  reflecting a strong demand.  APPLES: Supplies significantly lower than last year and prices will be slightly higher.  Rd. water operation was the result of necessity and had no effect on Gibsons taxation���, whatsoever. He added that he hoped:  Pratt Rd. would be within Gibsons boundary by spring.  The delegation was composed"  of Chris Beacon and Jim Water-  house.  Meeting for their second time  this season the Chessmen and  Shop Easy have split v their  games with Shop Easy winning  the first game 2-0 on Nov. 1,  played in Gibsons on the all  weather field behind the Elementary school and the second  game being won by the Chessmen 1-0 in Sechelt Dec. 6.  Both   teams  had  several  opportunities   to score.   The field  seemed to be the biggest factor  as  it has quite a  grade to it.  The Shop Easy team going down  hill in the first half had most of  the play but could not put the  ball in the goal due to the determined efforts of the Chessmen goalkeeper and strong defence. With the Chessmen going  downhill in the second half they  scored two goals, one being disallowed. Cecil Leachman scored  his very first goal in organized  soccer. It is pleasing to see so  many parents attending division  seven games; attendance for the  other divisions is very poor.

Opinion concerning the outcome of the gravel dispute at Sechelt is that even, if the Regional District board was to object, the  provincial authorities would find a way to sanction the project. In  other words what has been happening and what will be happening  until the gravel.is on its way from bed to barge, will be shadow  boxing. With plans developed by the company to a point far beyond the argumentative stage, don't hold your breath awaiting the  provincial government veto on them.  There is one position now foi the; Regional board to take and  that is one of being embarrassed. The Construction Aggregates'  project is fair too large for the Regional District board to havle  final say in this matter.  It should be made clear that the Regional board has no power  over Indian lands and their use. It could register an objection for  the proper authorities to study but that is as far as it can go.j  Further, if one should ask who is going to profit by this project it  .could be readily _aid that theIndian band' and-the provincial government stand to 'gain financially. The government stands to get  something out of every yard of gravel taken out. The Regional  board when the project is under wsiy Twill possibly get whatever  taxation only is involved in the land.  So, protestors, look oyer the situation and try and develop  something more substantial than that of embarrassing a servant  of the provincial government. Ever try embarrassing a Sacred  government controlled by Premier Bennett?  Experience a^feetor  "At 7:45 p.m. Nov. 30, Clarence Joe telephoned Gibsons Radio  Cab Limited for a taxi to transport him from Gibstons Legion to  the Sechelt Indian Reserve. A few minutes later a cab driver arrived and instead of paging the customer as.is usual procedure,  came to the table where Clarence Joe.was sitting and demanded  in front of witnesses, to seei his prospective client's money, saying  he was acting under company instructions. The cab driver was asked the cost of his journey, paid and sent away.  "We, the undersigned, feel most strongly that this was a blatant and deplorable case; of discrimination against our first citizens." :i'7'.,;;,%.tt     7-7 '       7'.';  ;V(   \       '. ...\ ���'/���<���  The above, received by the Coast News, was signed by Elizabeth Gisvold, Paul Gallant, Allan C. Crane, Ian C. Jacob and Irene  Greene.  Taking the above at face value it does not look good. However  the item known as experience is a factor. The driver was acting*  under company orders. There, must have, been a reason, based on  experience. This;has happened to other people and nothing has  been said about it.  The words blatant and deplorable discrimination need examining. If any one of those signers held many unpaid accounts in this  category as does the taxi company, some of them a year old and  if some of .the. signers were running a taxi company and had clients get out of the taxi and just walk away and get lost on the  Reserve without paying, where would they put the word discrimination, j  If there is a complaint it would be that the driver could have  called Clarence Joe to one side and dickered with him. Howeveif  taxi drivers report that this has its ugly moments too. It is unfortunate that Clarence Joe was subjected to this and it is just as unfortunate that the taxi company was put in the position it found  itself.  COAST NEWS  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Defeated by Wesley B. Hodgson in a municipal vote, Chairman A. E. Ritchey ended 14  years service on Gibsons council.  The school district's $768,000  referendum was defeated on a  vote of 579 to 243, just 18 votes  :short of the 60 percent majority.  Don Douglas topped the school  board poll for trustees getting  315 votes. Others elected were  Mrs. Celia Fisher, 265 and Joseph Horvath 272.  10 YEARS AGO  A suggestion that the property on which the old Gibson Memorial church stands be turned  into a park came before council and was approved by council and 20 persons present.  A shopper bus from Roberts  Creek to Gibsons was inaugurated by merchants for Friday  mornings.  Some 250 persons attended the  seventh annual Sechelt Rod and  Gun Club game dinner and heard  Frank Maher, fisheries biologist speak.  15 YEARS AGO  Total precipitation was 10.98  during November with five inches of snow; rain on 19 days and  snow on four all of which was  slightly higher than average.  To help reduce party lines B.C.  Telephones is installing a $17,000  cable in Sechelt area.  Gibsons building permits for  the year totalled $100,315, more  than double that of last year.  During the recent washout of  Mission Creek bridge B.C. Telephones men arranged a suspended cable chair across to convey  Dr. McColl and nurse across to  complete an emergency call.  20 YEARS AGO  Batt Mclntyre MLA, promised  that the double flush coating of  the. highway which was dropped  by the government this fall will  be completed next spring.

Sechelt organizations are talking about forming a district municipality for the area.  By JULES A. MAINIL  In the first decades of this  century the; residents of the rural communities of Saskatchewan  had three major secular festivals; the agricultural fair, the  baseball tournament and the  Christmas concert. The first was  the most useful; the second, the  most exciting; and the last, the  best loved.  The population was young,  sparse and prolilfic. Almost every house in the district had  children attending school. From  this disparate group, the progeny of every race and creed,  the teacher was expected to, and  in fact, did produce that master-  piece, The Christmas Concert.  Don't for one minute think that  these concerts were not important. For a short while the children were true actors playing  before the appreciative yet demanding audience of relatives  arid friends. The parents saw in  the concert a living proof that  their children were receiving an  education'; there they were, addressing the community, not in  Polish, not in Italian, not in Russian, but in English, the tongue  of their new homeland.  Firially, this school festival  was very important to the teacher. A good concert was a road to  prestige and success for the  young rural teacher.  How were these concerts produced? From mid - November  regular school work fell off  sharply. After much searching,  pondering and weighing, dialogues, recitations, marches,  tableaux and pantomimes were  chosen. Inthe choosing several  things had to be kept in mind;  some of the riiaterial had to deal  with Christmas, some of the material had to be relatively difficult and complex to show off the  ability of the brighter students  and of the teacher, and finally,  some had to be showy but very  simple for the more backward  or handicapped children. There  had to be a balance to:'the whole  thing, to each his share within  the scope of his ability. God  have mercy on the teacher who  forgot that cardinal rule, elephants ijhave short7 memories*  compared to families with a  slighted child.  By the first of December normal school work is pretty well  forgotten but teacher and pupils  are working hard. There iri the  corner a little seven year old is  being taught a recitation. Remember she has never heard  English spoken at home and  right now she knows she won't  be able to do it and yet on concert night she will be word perfect��� a minor miracle. In the  other   corner an   older   girl   is  helping  the   teacher  create   a  Christmas tableau, making sure  that the slower: children are withe best positions*.  Next to the teacher's desk,  which has been shoved to one  side, on a chalk-marked area the  size the stage will be, the long  dialogue, the magnum opus, is  being created. The spirits of  Shakespeare and Moliere are  here helping and encouraging,  for this is important. The whole  concert hinges in some way on  the long dialogue. Here the  teacher not only uses, but is expected to use her brightest pupils."  The concert is coming along  fine, but reanember this is  Christmas; the decorations have  to be made, begged or borrowed  and put up. The School Board  must be reminded to get the  Christmas tree, to borrow half  a dozen grain car doors from' the  C.N.R. to make the stage, and  to be sure to have the 50 or more  bags of rock candy ready to  hand Out to the children on the  big night. There is only one  Santa Claus suit for the four rural schools so it will have to be  fetched the afternoon of the  concert. Timing ��� what does  the Met or Covent Garden know  about timing.  Firially the day comes. All is  now in the lap of the gods who,  hopefully, will provide an enthusiastic and responsive audience.  The school is jampacked. The  relatives, the friends, the shakey  oldsters, the babes in arms, and  a goodly representation from the  neighboring school districts, are  here. It seems impossible to get  that many people in the small  schoolhouse, but they get in.  All goes off well. Songs and  carols are angelic; the recitations, the tableaux, the pantomimes succeed beyond expectations; and the dialogues draw  bursts of laughter and ohs and  ahs of appreciation from the  audience. A few untoward things  happen of course; to the consternation of the teacher and  enjoyment of the children and  audience, a dog runs on the  stage, Decomes^ frozen with  fright and ;ha%: to be forcibly removed; some of; the important  props become lost in the melee;  a little one falls off the stage  and howls to high heaven at a  supposedly silent, dramatic  point. Just the normal hazards  and accidents of any theatrical  performance.  '" The conceit is over, now is the  time for Santa Claus and the  Christmas tree. This period is  only slightly less dangerous than  sitting on a time bomb. The  place  is   lighted   with  gasoline  The Voice appears  Described as the largest intermittent newspaper on the Upper  Sechelt Peninsula, the Peninsula  Voice has made its appearance  and the first issue reached the  Coast News.  Harold White is editor and  publisher and iri his opening  editorial writes:  "Boo! Don't act shocked.  Something had to be done to fill  the hole left in the community  fabric these two summers since  Al Lloyd's flyer packed it in.  "A community without some  kind of newspaper is like a body  without a mind. It doesn't know  it is one.  Of course the famous You'll  Do Better special served bnly  one business, and the Garden  Bay store's success in those  years was in no small part due  to its use of promotions to divert the buyer's gaze from Sechelt.  "Nevertheless, when the flyer  finally packed it in its loss as  a community bulletin board and  the drily agent of identity we  had, was felt by every home  and organization.  Using Gibsons and Sechelt papers has been no solution. It's  like talking to one's mistress on  the radio phone; too clumsy and  too expensive.  "A community that relies ori  its neighbors' newspapers risks  being like the swan who lived  with ducks and thought he was  one because he was always seeing them but never himself.  "Pender Harbour has to wake  up and fight for the right to be  itself while there is still time."  At the bottom of the last of  four pages he writes: "Save this  paper. Someday it may be worth  15 cents. We hope to be out  again in two weeks but if the  gap between income and outlay  is too great we may have to  keep it to once a month."  The paper carries some advertising which is very necessary  if it is to continue. The first issue of 500 copies was completely sold out in a short time.  . ���>..���*> * \ *f ���  <f s< VF      (Sw*iVS4��>  For Real Estate on the  K. CROSBY  Sunshine Coast  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

The  dried Christmas tree is beautifully triimirned with flammable  decorations all cheek by jowl to  dozens of twinkling small wax  candles insecurely fixed to the  branches of the tree. To climax  the danger, the Ho-Hoing, well-  pillowed Santa Claus, dressed in  his fuzzy cotton suit, must reach  amongst these candles to untie  the gifts from the branches, call  out the recipients name, give it  to someone in the front row who  will pass it hand to hand until  it reaches the happy owner.  There must have been a special guardian angel delegated to  supervise and protect these beau  tiful, simple festivals.  The Christmas Concert is over  for another year. The men are  getting the sleighs and cutters  straightened out and bringing  them to the school doors where  the old ones are helped aboard  and babies and little ones are  snuggled in blankets for the  drive home.  Once home, the kettle is  brought to the boil for a cup of  tea or eolf.ee and- the first real  taste of the Christmas baking.  It is here that the Christmas concert is diagnosed, analysed arid  judged. Amazingly the judgment  varies little from year to year.  It was the best concert in the  district, possibly even the best  concert ever held in our school.  Certainly the best in the district.  N.

PETER ANDREWS,  President,  Canadian Ski Assn.,  Western Division) ,  It seems pretty clear from the  tremendous early-season interest  in skiing in B.C. that with even  minimum co-operation from the  weatherman we're heading into  the greatest winter ever.  Let's guess that there could  be 10,000 brand new skiers in  B.C. this winter, and another  10,000 who just got their first  taste last winter. Even with all  our mountains, the currently developed ski areas in B.C. are  rapidly approaching the saturation point ��� particularly those  in the province's southwest section. If only it didn't cost so  much to develop a ski area, the  problem could be easily solved.  Spreading the skiers around  can ease some of the pressure,  but the real need is for more  development, the kind of develop  ment that anticipates future  need rather than waiting for it  to arrive. Because a ski resort  is such a high-risk proposition,  government might usefully reexamine its role to see how it  can both protect the public interest and encourage more private capital to move into this  field.  With the unusually cold weather so early in the season,  watch out for frost-bite, especially when zero temperatures combine, with a stiff wind. Cheeks  and uncovered ears can freeze  very quickly. When it happens  don't move quickly into a high  temperature room'. That can  really hurt. A. gradual change of.  temperature is recommended.

I was most surprised to find  that the Health Act was not obtainable and that council apparently did not have a copy although they have suspended the  business license to Mr. Barber  at the Mallorn Tree in this act.  1 have written Mr. Bell, the  Health inspector at Powell River  asking for a copy and said that  if he cannot supply I can apply  bo the Hon. Isabel Dawson.  I have already received from  her the financial account of B.C.  via the Hon. W. A. C. Bennett  and it makes most interesting  reading. It is now out on loan to  my interested neighbors.  I was not surprised when the  mayor, Mr. Swain stated the  health laws varied according to  the trade ��� and Mr. Bell tells  me he has passed on information  received by me to the healthx  dept. of Indian affairs re those  Sechelt traders that have property in the Sechelt Reserve.  I have received this in a letter from Hon. Isabel Dawson:  Thank you for your letter of  Nov. 8. I was contacting the  minister of highways regarding  the use of carts at Langdale terminal and that consideration be  given to similar baggage deposit and pickup setup now used at  Tsawwassen terminal. The minister replied he is going to look  into it.  ���Dorothy Greene.

The cabinet members present  at the last board meeting (including myself) were overcome  at the unanimous vote in favor  of our new policy. There is no  need to tell you what a morale  booster this was to the government and my associates on the  Cabinet ��� to. say nothing of the  entire student body.  The students have now become  aware of the existence of the  school board, which, until re-.,  cently, was a very remote and  detached tribunal in most of  their minds.

The various cultural groups  participating in your program  are very happy to have the opportunity of sharing their rich  cultural heritage with your community. I hope you will enjoy  their program of music, songs  and dances that have their roots  in the many diverse cultures of  the world.  As  you know,  Canada's  rich  folk heritage is brought to us  from many lands and programs  such as your International Folk  Festival '70 help to develop in  British Columbia and throughout Canada, a multi-cultural tradition that is uniquely Canadian.  In so doing, it is also helping  to further the growth of a better understanding among all  Canadians, and demonstrating  to the world how persons from  many varied backgrounds can  contribute to mutual enrichment  in the development of a nation.  As we work together in a spirit of friendship, goodwill, mutual  respect and understanding of  ourselves as Canadians, may we  treasure the freedom we enjoy  and use it to enrich our lives  and that of our fellow Canadians.

Story by Matthews; cartoon by Fraser  (By GEORGE MATTHEWS)  Until last weekend, it could be  said that Gibsons own Driftwood Players were better known  provincially than they were in  their own home town.  Thanks to a highly successful  and entertaining performance of  See How They Run, local theatre  audiences and the Players have  finally found one another.  The man most responsible for  the success is director John  Burnside whose philosophy of  bringing theatre to the people  in order to bring people to the  theatre provided the perfect  play for the perfect  audience.  The Coast News has been eluded lightly by a member of the  committee that appeared before  the recent meeting of the Regional District board.  That member maintained the  Coast News should not have labelled the committee members  as being opponents of the gravel  project, when in fact they were  seekers of. information.

That, after all is what the theatre is all about and Burnside and  his cast of enthusiastic local actor s are to be thanked and congratulated.  The play itself is a brilliantly  written. English farce in which a  pretentiously proper little pastor and his flamboyant ex-actress wife play host to a houseful  of real andbogus churchmen. In  the best farcical tradition everyone is mistaken for everyone  else .-until-the-.total chaos is resolved at final curtain.  The play was well chosen for  an inexperienced cast. The hot  and heavy action covered up  most oif the miscues and lack of  subtlty on stage. In the cast of  nine, the. finest characterization  came from the most experienced member, Miss Colleen Johnson, the winner of this year's  Blest Actress Award at the B.C.  One-Act Drama Festival. Her  portrayal "of the priggish tippler,  Miss Skillon, was one of the  most brilliant pieces of comic  acting I have seen, and a tribute  to Miss Johnson's versatility on  stage. The audience responded  enthusiastically to her antics as  she picked up an otherwise slow  first act. -  Allien Crane played the resident pastor with intelligence and  fine pacing. A difficult role, he  was able to play the gray little  pastor and the outraged husband  with equal dexterity.  Nest Lewis, the pastor's wife,  brought to her role a grace and  elegance of movement which  contrasted beautifully with the  more farcical elements of the  play. Miss Lewis' finest assets,  a lovely voice and very expressive eyes, could have been emphasized more with some vocal '  training and a more daring  makeup man.  The dark horSe of the play was  George Cooper, whose portrayal  NOW  Enjoy 1971 25" PHILC0-F0RD  Color TV in your home  for only $539.95  7WS ARE AVAILABLE  NO SERVICE PROBLEMS  AYRES ELECTRONICS  GIBSONS  Phone 886-7117  of the bumbling Bishop delighted  the audience. A late comer to  the Driftwood Players, Mr.  Cooper surprised me, as well as  the audience, by displaying a<  remarkable . talent for comic  acting.  Pat Baker, as the American  Air Force Sergeant, was another  audience favorite. Mr. Baker  showed an impressive self-confidence and stage presence,  which together with a prodigious  energy gave us an unusually  good performance from a newcomer to the stage.  The attractive, malaproptic  maid Ida, was played by Lynn  Green, surely the most visually  pleasant member of the cast.;  The pretty Miss Green managed  her role admirably, despite, an  apparent nervousness on stage.  Another solid performance  came from seasoned actor Waldo Dahl. His Russian spy was  delivered with just the right  combination of menace and comedy, and was one of the highlights of the evening.  Dave Smith, also an experienced actor, provided us with  a beautiful caricature of the  cloistered cleric. Mr. Smith's  humorous role stood out in an  otherwise sluggish third act.  The remaining cast member,  Mike Willis, gave us a studied  performance of a detective,  t-layed with great precision. It  should have been more effective  but the weakness of this role  can not be attributed to Mr.  Willis; but to the other cast  members who displayed a general lack of dexterity with dialogue.  This brings us to the major  flaw in the production, which  was an overemphasis of the action at the cost of some terrifically funny dialogue.  < An analysis of the production  would not be complete without  mentioning the extremely effective set design of Miss Marion  Fraser. The set was functional.  without being ostentatious, and  the placement of curtains did a  great deal to overcome the serious, acoustical handicaps of the  Elementary School stage. Stage  manager Mike Thomas of M.T.  Construction in Gibsons and his  assistants Thorne Underwood  and Mel Campbell are to ibe  complimented for their building  of Miss Fraser's set design, especially considering the. almost  non-existent budget of the Players. The low budget production  did not hamper a very imagin  ative Miss Lewis whose costumes were more than appropriate.  In conclusion, w.e can now say  that the Driftwood Players have  at last become, a badly needed  part of community activities.  They have a busy, season ahead  with a production by the workshop in just two weeks' time-  Dec. 21 "and 22, of an evening of  three, one act plays for young  people, in conjunction with the  student actors from Elphinstone  High School. Hopefully, these  plays will be received with the  same enthusiasm as the audience displayed last weekend in  the Gibsons Elementary School  gym.  In Court  Allan George Brody was found  guilty of driving without due  care and attention resulting in  striking a pole when he failed  to make the Cemetery corner  turn. Trial was held to decide  whether he was at fault, thus  resulting in points against his  driver's license.  Victor Gilbert Botin, Gibsons  was fined $300 and his driver's  license suspended in Canada for  three months, for driving while  impaired. The breathalizer registered .22.  William McGregor Stevens,  Powell River/charge d with driving without due care and attention, and registering .13 in a  breathalizer test was fined $300  and lost his driver's license for  one month.

He turned wide  out of Field Road, Wilson Creek  became involved with on-coming  traffic and failed to remain at  the scene.

'Fldwers by Wire'  Cut Flowers ��� Christmas Arrangements  Poinscttias ��� Tropical Green Plants  A Large Selection of Flowering Plants  Gifts ��� Candles ��� Corsages  Christmas Enhanced  by the Scent of Decorations do help!  8       Coast News, Dec. 9, 1970.  To adults as well as children  the decorations are all part of  the ritual of Christmas; certainly without them our memories of childhood Christina ses  would be the poorer.  Rut merely going into a shop  and buying mass-produced decorations somehow takes much of  the fun out of the ritual. They  really should be made at home,  the entire family joining in, so  that the result is individual if,  amateurish.  With chicken wire, greenery of  every kind, dead br^ntahes, gold  and silver paint sprajr, sopie  colored ribbon and some colored balls anybody can make her  own decorations.  Try crumpling the chacken  wire into a ball, then stick holly  leaves into the holes until no  wire shows. The holly can either  be used as it is or it can be  sprayed with gold or silver first.  Tie a ribbon round the top of the  ball and it can then be hung  up over an archway or alcove.  Wreaths can be made in the  same way. Shape the wire, fill  the holes with holly, mistletoe,  spruce or any other greenery  that you have to hand. Bows or  silver bells can be tied on at intervals, or brightly-colored balls  Children seem to like the old-  fashioned genuine Christmas  tree best, its branches laden  with colored balls, angels, lights  and its base stacked with presents.  To make your own decorations  for the tree try using silver paper or stiff colored paper. Out  out a circular shape, then fold  it in half, hi quarters, etc., until you can't fold it any more.  Then cut triangular shaped indents round all the edges. The  smaller the cuts the moire deli-  . cate the pattern. When unfolded  it makes a pretty snow-flake  shape which can be hung on the  tree.  For adults there are more sophisticated Christmas t r e e s  around that can be decorated in  a less conventional way. The  silver trees that are in every  shop look charming if they are  decorated with pale blue color  ed balls and ribbon. Or plastic  pears can be sprayed with silver  or gold and hung on the tree ���  all you need then- is a partridge.  Candles are always pretty. A  window lit up by a mass of different sized colored candles  looks welcoming. For the dining-  table, candlesticks can be decorated with spruce and holly or  mistletoe and small pine cones.  These can either be left green  as they are or sprayed with silver or gold. Suspended above  the table a rather stark branch  painted dead white and hung  with small colored balls would  be unusual and pretty.r  PIANO DAMAGED  Roberts Creek Legion auxiliary, while pleased over the success of its bazaar was somewhat  perturbed over the fact the auxiliary's piano was loaned out  and came back damaged.v  Winners of prizes at the bazaar were the doll to Bill Clark,  door prize to Ruth Parker, hampers to Ruth Meade and Owen  Edmunds.

Veteran units  endorse pensions  Representatives of 11 national  veterans' organizations, meeting  in Ottawa, expressed qualified  endorsation of the bill to amend  the Pension Act. introduced by  Veterans Affairs Minister Dube.  Judge Redmond Roche, Legion  president and chairman of the  meeting, said there was general  satisfaction among veterans witti  the scope of the legislative  changes ��� the iwost extensive in  a quarter of a century.  But they were also aware of  some areas where the bill fall-  short of both their expectations  and the recommendations of the  Standing Committee on Veterans  Affairs,    y  They expressed satisfaction  with the interim pension increases and the increase in War Veterans Allowance. But there was  disappointment, that these will  not become effective until April  1,1971.  The proposal to award 50 percent pension to those who were  prisoners of the Japanese and  have any disability was warmly  received. There was also approval for the proposed Pension Review Board and the extra allowances for veterans suffering  from multiple disabilities  200th birthday  CBC-TV'* birfchclay present for  Beethoven fans, on the composer's 200th birthday oh Wed., Dec  16 at 9 pVrn.; will be the telecast  of a two-ihour color special, Beethoven and the Ninth.

It was explained to her that  the regional health board respectfully requested that no business license be granted Mallorn  Tree proprietors, concerned in  the non-compliance with regulations. She was told that revised  plans for Mallorn Tree posed  several problems. The new plans  were for two sections and under  building code regulations- this  would require separate sets1 of  plumbing facilities for each section.  In her opening remarks she  objected as a taxpayer to the  discrimination being shown, the  building has been standing for  years and nothing done to it.  Mayor William Swain explained that the village has bylaws  and if people get away without  observing them the village might  as well have no bylaws at all.  Mrs.   Greene   argued   that   the  buck  had been passed to  Mr.  Bell of the health department.  The mayor explained there was  ho buck  passing  at  all.   Then  Clerk   Ted   Raynor   read   Mr.  Bell's letter to council as the examining health  officer. In this  letter he asked that the licence  be  withheld.   Mrs.  Greene  was  informed that the health department was handling the matter  directly..  ��� TAX PAPERS  ��� LETTERS  ��� MEDICAL CERTIFICATES  ��� LEGAL DOCUMENTS  and other required paper.

Gibsons  for estimates  ected toward the development of  a new signal source for TV Chan  nels 5 and 7, in. the Gibsons  area.  Signals from both of these  U.S. stations have shown some  susceptibility to fading during  recent weeks. This appears to  be due largely to conditions encountered on long, over-water  hops.  A Coast Cable Vision official  stated that the new site, now under survey, shows promise of  providing more steady signals  at all times.  An  application  to  the  CRTC  for authority to add Channels 9  and 11. to the Gibsons system  and Channel 9 to the Sechelt  system is now being processed.  Permission to add additional  FM stations to both Cable TV  systems is also being sought at  this time.  The Cable Vision systems have  built rough roads and erected  TV cable over several miles of  mountainous terrain. .  The coaxial cable has been  erected on pole lines running  through   forested areas   and  a  heavy, stranded steel wire cable  has been installed approximate*  ly two feet above the TV cable,  throughout the wooded areas.  This is a precautionary protection for the coaxial cable and is  expected to help shield the cable  from damage or service interruptions in the event of trees  falling across the line.  If service interruptions do occur, subscribers are requested  to phone the Cable Vision company if the trouble has1 not been  cleared within a reasonable period.  Check these telephone tips ir  There is great joy in exchanging  Christmas greetings by telephone.  So much so, in fact, that thousands  and thousands of Canadians do so  each year.  It isn't possible to reserve specific  times for long distance calls but  you can minimize delay by following these tips.  FIRST ��� Make a list now of the  phone numbers (including area  codes) of the people you plan to  call. Get these, without charge,  through your operator or by following instructions in your telephone directory for dialing direct.  Do this now and avoid battling  heavy holiday traffic just to get  your numbers.  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.  REMEMBER ��� Most long distance rates are lower after 6 p.m.  daily and all day Sunday. Check  your directory for full details.  Have your Christmas numbers ready, spread  your calls, and have a happy Christmas.  BCTEL^) Coast News, Dec. 9, 1970.     11  Point of law  SUNSHINE COAST DIRECTORY  (By   a   Practicing Lawyer)  ,. More questions have crossed  our desk regarding lawyers'  fees, particularly those based on  a percentage.  Q. How much can a lawyer  charge for collecting ah account?  A., 20% on the first $300 plus  15/fo of the next $700 plus JL0%  on the balance.  Q. My lawyer changed me $5  for collecting $20. Isn't this too  much as it is more than 20%  which is $4?  A. No r- as minimum charge  of $5 for a collection is allowed.  Q. How much can a lawyer  charge for phone calls?  A.   Generally $2.50 each.  Q. How much can a lawyer  charge for writing letters?  A.   Generally, $3 each.  Q. I got my lawyer to write  a letter about some money owing me. The man the letter went  to sent me the money and my  lawyer charged me $15. Can he  charge this much for one letter?  A. Your lawyer didn't just  write one letter. The fact that it  was on legal letterhead and no  doubt threatened , a. law suit,  etc., means that the lawyer effected a collection. See the first  answer. We presume the amount  involved was $75. If so, this is  the correct charge.  Q. I received a lawyer's bill  itemizing every phone call, letters sent and received, documents received and prepared,  all of which is okay but I have  been charged $525 for a three  day trial, in addition to the other  things. The lawyer lost the case.  Is this a, correct charge?

Yes. For matters that can  be computed on a time basis  the allowed Charge is $35 per  hour. If one assumes five hours  a day in court this is correct.  We are not sure what you mean  by "the lawyer lost the case."  If you were unsuccessful presumably the judge didn't believe  you and/or your witnesses. Of  course if the case was lost by  the lawyer's error or negligence  he could charge nothing and in  fact you would have a claim  against him.  Q. My lawyer charged me  $180 for handling the sale of a  house worth $20,000. Is this  right?  A. No, but are you sure this  isn't the total of the bill including land registry fees? He may  charge as follows:  1% on the first $2,500 ��� $25.00  Y2% on the next $12,500 ��� 62.50  Y4% on the next $5,000 ��� 12.50  Value of realty $20,000 ��� $100  If there were some unusual complications the lawyer is allowed  to make an extra charge.
