Council can contract garbage  set in  Press Gallery  An attendance of six of the 130  odd memibers of the National  Press Gallery at a house of commons debate brought comment  during the tax bill debate from  Paul St. Pierre (Liberal - Coast  Chiicotin).       ���.'..-.. .'.  St. Pierre interjected briefly  during a procedural move to allow Eric Kierans, former Liberal caji.net minister to proceed  beyond his allotted time in a  speech strongly: critical of the  present government's financial  policies. The house granted  Kierans extra time. I'.l ''���  The Coast Chiicotin MP pointed to"the unusually high representation iri the Press Gallery as  an indication of the public interest in the Kierans speech; Reporters 'present constituted "almost a record," .he said:  JUNIOR FIREARMS SAFETY awards were presented at Gibsons  Rod and Gun Club recently to these young marks_rieh> Left to  .right, John Volen, Mike Harris, head coach Ken Nadon and Pat  Horyath.

St. Pierre said that. international law of the sea was outdated, ounded upon the (principle  of iriilitary protection and extended to cover matters concerning safety of life at sea, it had  nevertheless failed to recognize  the third dimension which was  the protection of coastal states  from massive pollution dangers.  "Men cannot* sit idle while international lawyers quarrel  about dots and commas and  while seafaring states concerned  with their own selfish interests,  continue to try to shape the law  of tthe sea in the old and outdated mould of military security  sr-A protection of life and cargo  on the high soa.s.

A woman named Mary.Jane Lawson writing on "Midnight Between the Old Year and the New Year," in 1882 penned (no-.typewriter)' these lines:  We stood on the bridge of the Ages  The current of time upon earth,  The Old Year was sealing its reeoi'd,  The New Year had come to the birth.  ������. ,  In silence we stood toy the ebb-tide  And watched it melt into the sea ���  A drop in that infinite ocean  That has been and ever shall be.  Having disposed of that drop in that infinite ocean we can  turn to subjects much closer and offer some hopes tihat 1972 will  produce its best for us.  For instance one can only hope that, the Sunshine Coast Regional District Ratepayers Association will have a much better  record at the end of 1972 than it had at the end of 1971. Its execrir  tive and members made considerable noises about what they considered wrong with regional government'but when it came to trying political action to subtantiate its claim's of almost everything  ���up to malfeasance you could, have heard an SORDRA pin drop 6ir  nomination day. . .  Turning to brighter subjects we can acquaint our triskaideka-  phobia ((pronounced tris ky dek u'h foh ibee uh) population that there  is only one Friday the thirteenth in 1972 and that falls in October.  Now these triskaides are people who|-dote^n thejjnumiber 13,; just  like people who dote on black cats, ladders, broken mirrors and  such' like. ' ��� X  x   ... '  ��� r    ��� ��� ���     ���..'.-..���.  Regardless of the phobias, color, creed or whatever else you  enjoy or suffer; let's Hope 1972 will at -least give us a chance to  ���hold pur head high and view the distant horizons with greater  calm. It does not look as though the United Nations or anyone  else is going to be able to quieten down otherwise "edgy, populations.  The natives were restless  _. -.   . -     \  A peek at what occurred internationally in 18721 looks as though  it will be more of the same for 1972, just 100 years later. This indicates that while time marches on, change takes place much  slower.  For instance Spain started the ball rolling with a Carlist revolution resulting in loyal troops attacking and winning handily.    ���  The Diaz rebellion in Mexico was suppressed just bejfore the  death' of President Juarez.'  In Honduras a civil war raged between President Medina and  the provisional government. Medina was finally, routed.  Peru chimed in with its revolution with the minister of war  striving to take over from President Balta.  The European front appeared to be quiet because France,  cleaning up after its war with Germany, was trying to raise a  further 3,000,000 franc indemnity before Gernian troops would  leave the country.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Bruce Charles and Ryan Karl  Hogan were the first twins born  at St.  Mary's Hospital.  Decerfi'ber rainfall' hit close to  13 inches. Christmas Day temperature was a high of 42 and a  low of 30.  Gibsons council - received ; the  report of planners Robert Williams and Associates of Vancouver. It was a 32 page study.  10 YEARS AGO  A request for a larger RCMP  force in Gibsons was made by  Gibsons council.

It is on Jap Mountain in Campbell River area.  15 YEARS AGO  Bal's road from the Highway  to Seaview Road was made a  one-way traffic artery by Gibsons  council.  Black Ball has opened a ferry  service from Horseshoe Bay to  Bowen Island.  20 YEARS AGO  Gales resulted in the grounding of a huge salvage barge in  the area near Sechelt wharf.  Mrs. L. S. Jackson reported  to the school board that heating  arrangements in the Sechelt  school were entirely inadequate.  Disieussion has arisen from an  ��� arrangement for the ferry system to carry SMT buses. Fears  are that fares, would become too  ���high.  (By LILLIAN PRICE)  -Sverything has to start somewhere. 1st. David's Scfhool for  Boys made its auspicious' start,  quietly aridunobtrusively in this  area, at the YMCA Caanp Elphinstone in September.  The facilities at the camp-site  were rented by the school until  the middle of December, when  .the staff and students moved to  the permanent building, near  Squamish.  St. David's School for Boys is  founded under the Societies Act  of British Columbia, and as such  is a non-profit organization. C  The Board of Governors and  directors represent people of all  walks of life, w*ho are vitally interested in young people an_!  ���their well-being. They are responsible for the founding, building and operating of the school.  The objectives, as laid down  by the constitution of the school,  are: To maintain and operate  in British Columbia a school or  sqhools for male students with  the object of instructing such  boys in the arts anoT, sciences^  and to inculcate in suchboys an  appreciation of'religion,- lawand  order, and to prepare such boys  for the duties and responsibilities of citizenship.  There are 42 boys enrolled at  the present tiime, but when the  permanent school at Squaimish-  is in operation, there will be 60 -  80 students. The students board  at the school from Monday to  Friday. Students who live further afield; are accommodated  as full boarders.  At present, grades are from-7  to 10. In 1972 grade 11 will be  added, with grade 12 a year later. Expansion froiri 1972 wii.1  take the form.) of additional clas^  ses within each, grade. Educational curriculum' is directed to;  prepare students for university.'  There is a strong empbasis on  an outdoor program. Canoeing,  camping skills, skiing, sailing,  snow-shoeing, hiking, horse-riding and rock climbing.  Mr. MMiael D. Weeks explained that basically, boys are not  challenged enough physically,  and do not appreciate to the full  the environment, and joy of the  out-oTrdoors. ��     U l-r'\'  High schools of tod_iy do not  give students a chance to; acquire necessary skills for' out-of-  doors, or to use spare time to  the full. Too often, eiriphasis is  placed on football, soccer or  basketball, which is seasonal  sport only. Once out of school,  these arts are lost. The training  received in out-door life enables  students to continue and enjoy  these, pleasures and skills for the  rest of their lives. A 'healthy  body and a few basic skills are  all they will need.  Mr. Weeks teaches history,  geography, mathematics and  physical education. He is a highly qualified swimmer, and is  most enthusiastic regarding the  Outward' Bound aspect of the  school program.    '      ���  Educational periods are adjusted according to the weather,  if fine, then its' out-of-door ac-  New Tax Court  Justice Minister John Turner  has announced that the Tax Review Board Act has been proclaimed in force effective Dec.  15, 1971. The justice minister  also announced that Judge Keith  Allan Flanigan, a judge of the  county and district courts in Ontario, is the chairman of the new  board.  One of the major purposes of  the new act is to provide the ordinary taxpayer with a tribunal  that combines accessibility, informality and effectiveness, a  taxpayers court.  The act also provides that no  special form of petition or pleading will be necessary to institute  a review or an ajppeal from a  tax assessment, and that the  (board is not to be (bound by any  legal or technical rules of evidence. The board is directed by  the legislation to see that all appeals are dealt with as informally and expeditiously as the circumstances and considerations  of fairness will permit  In addition, a taxpayer will be  entitled under the new act to receive bis reasonable and proper  costs notwithstanding the result  where the minister of national  revenue aippeals a decision of  the tax review board to the Federal Court of Canada and the  amount of tax that is in controversy does not exceed $2,500.  tivities. Iri (poor weather, it is  .   much easier for;the boys to con-;  ���   centrate  on; academic   studies.  -This : fle__iib.e; is^erir - obvawwisly -  results, in less '.boredom,greater  interest and variety all round/  Classes are geared to the individual. Some students in grade  8, who are capable of more work  .say in matheriiatics, are allowed  .ko continue at a faster pace. The  slower student is given more individual attention. By this method, it is possible fo^ a boy to  comiplete Grade 8 and 9 mathematics in one year. This applies  to all subjects.  The tutorial system is in effect at St. David's School. Each  boy is assigned to a teacher (tutor) and receives personal help  and encouragement in his overall school life. Those having dif-  iaculty in adjusting to the work,  or school life, would receive  more of the tutor's time.  As there are 10 teachers on  the staff, when the student enrollment reaches the 60 mark,  the ratio of students to teachers  ���will be 6-il. Individual attention  to each student would therefore  Ibe great.  Mr. Christopher J. Goodwin,  vice-president and master of the  school, has had extensive teaching experience in leading inde-'  pendent schools in Britain, Canada and Alustral.a, including the  famous Timbertop school, the  Outward Bound part of the Gee-  long Grammar School in Australia. H.R.H. Prince Charles sgpent  same months at Timbertop. Mr.  Goodwin has invited Prince  Charles to be patron of St: David's. It is hoped that the, school  will be honored by T^rince  Charles' acceptance.  The idea behind this refreshing  *" educational approach was conceived and formulated by- the  X Rev. JPhn Malcolm Robertson,  B.A., S.T1B. (Honors) president  ' and provost of St. David's School  for Boys, and' honors graduate  of Rutgers University and Trinity College, University of Toronto. Mr. Robertson served two  years at historic Christ Church,  New Brunswick, New Jersey;  three years at teacher and priest  in change at remote Kitkatla on  the northern cqast of British Columbia; (and two years as master and chaplain at St. George's  School, Vancouver. He is now  vicar of St. Monica's Anglican  Church, West Vancouver.  St.. David's School is located  near the spectacular wilderness  setting of the Squam.sb Valley  and the mountain peaks of Garibaldi Park. It was designed by  Erickson-Massey,"who designed  Simon Fraser Universiy, the  .Canadian Pavilion at Osaka, Japan, and other well known buildings in British Columbia.  The two hours spent with Mr.  Goodwin and Mr. Weeks, only  served to report briefly on the  new school and its aims. In the  large hall1" at Camp Eliphinstone,  the 42 boys were having their  last lectiure of four sessions on  a St. John Ambulance Save a  Life program. The instructor  was Mr. Oliver Price. The lectures covered a brief course in  arifieial respiration. When the  school- is settled in Squamish,  further St. John Ambulance  courses will be arranged; to com  plete the Senior First Aid Course  Field trips will be an integral  ?->art of the academic program of  the. school, both during the. semester and the holidavs.  Greater Vancouver, British Columbia,   Ottawa,  Montreal   and  LEGAL  NOTICE OF INTENTION  TO APPLY FOR A  DISPOSITION OF  CROWN LAND  In Land Recording District of  Vancouver and situated in the  vicinity ^f St. Vincent Bay.,  Take notice that Jeffries Booming & Sorting Ltd. of 515-193 E.

"  It was around 9 p.m. and the  snow lay white around. There  was no other person other than  'myself in that stretch of the  road. Suddenly a , mother raccoon and three kittens sprang  not more than two feet across  my path. I naturally came to a  halt and to my: great surprise beheld this furry-coated mother sitting up at the side of the road,  begging for all the world, like a  trained animal. But what was;  more surprising was to see her  three kittens all in a row; begging also.  It made my heart bleed to  think that I beheld such a sight  and had no reward to give them  Since that time I have witnessed  a pair ���of fully grown raccoons  enter swiftly and boldly through  the open dlhtng room door and  to receive from the band of the  waitress a slice of toast each.  This evening (Dec. 9) an employee told me that this; morning a fully grown mother rac-  icoon came to the kitchen and  not alone She was accompanied  by her five ���kittens.: Needless to  say they were not turned away  empty-handed.  ���Edward J.

Forest Service  planted about 137,000 trees in  the Vancouver Forest District.  In 1970 the total was 7,200,000 ���  ,and it's expected by 1973 the reforestation program in the one  district will reach the 15^000,000-  tree mark.  "The doctors and nurses were  so kind to her at St., Marys'.  While she was there I was able  to get tip to see her at least once  a week. We even had a birthday  party *for Nana on her 93rd  birthday on Oct. 3.  "It is sib sad to see a once  strong and busy little lady so  (helpless, and now so far from  us. But I promised I'd get .tip to  see her as often as I could, and  the maitron jwoimased to toring  her to the phone when I ���called  hecn long distance. I'm sure the  thing we ail most dread is this,  business of suddenly finding ourselves old and inc-apa-citated,''  said Mr. Peterson.  - We paused by the -bedside of  Mrs. EHen Nygren, 82. She was  sleeping so peacefully, we didn't  have the heart to wake her. The  mother of Walt, Morris and Bob,  Granny Nygren ha�� always been  a happily aictdive arid busy person in her time. She is the mother of six (large families seem  to run in the Nygren clan, said  ���Clara, her daughte_N_n-_aw, who  mothers an active brood of seven' herseF.) .The girls (Walt,  Morris and Bob's sisters) are  Mrs. Ruth MoCullooh, Victoria;  Mrs.   Esther   Wendel,    Central  Butte, Sask.; and Elsie Nygren,  Vancouver, not forgetting the  17 grandchildren and five great-  gran<_c__ildren. lx'<-  Oara tafces time out jftbrri her  busy day to see her mother-in-  law at least once, a week.    .  In the next bed is Mrs. West-  band. Whole we were there her  daughter, Mrs. David Harrison,  called; in, then the conversation  flew fast and furious. .,  Over on the other side of the  ward, her back to- we intruders  from outside was Mrs. Gwendoline Gray, well in her 80s.  They tell us she dozes most of  the day, but when evening visitors t_me comes around,Mrs.  Gray becomes, wide awake and  interested in all that goes on  ardund her. One of the nurses  mentioned that Mrs. Gray;was  a very talented artist and- has  turned out a fine collecition; of  many beautiful paintings in her  time.  So that's the Doll's House and  its /present occupants* in 'that  bright and ���cheery room at the  very end of the long corridor at  St. Mary's1 Hospital, Sechelt.

'She has had arthritis for two  years beginning with soreness  t0 her knees. and other joints.  She was admiited to the society's Rufus Gibbs lodge for one  month.  During her visits through daily attendance at the Arthritis  Centre she learned a special exercise routine which could be  maintained while at home plus  educational aids obtained  through talks on how to cope  with arthritis.  Getting up and down from a  low chair is difficult for persons  afflicted with arthritis. Mrs.  Norris has been provided with a  firm cushion along with a rais-:  ed toilet seat. Other long handled aids help Mrs. Norris with  dressing and bathing. >  XEROX COPYING  Real estate operators are finding use of our Xerox machine a  valuable asset in the copying: of  map locations. !

Most Canadians believe in that thought.  Others believe in it, but won't lift a  finger to do anything about it. Not all  fingers are born equal. That's why, if  we want to keep this country together,  some need more lifting than others.  So what do we do about it?  There is a lot we can do. First  thing; we should start caring and understanding. Not just obout our own  neighborhood,  but^about a// of  Canada. We've got to help all those  people and parts? of Canada that need  it most.  There is a have Canada and a  have-not Canada. The have-nots from  coast to coast need* our help. If all of  us start caring and understanding our  fellow Canadian, surely we'll come together. If we don't, we'll come apart.  Do we want to have Canada, or have-  not Canada? Only we have the answer.  Canada. Stand together.  The advertising industry and your community Board or Chamber. Paul ST. PIERRE, MP  (Received ��� top  week's issue.)  late   for   last  There was once an Amiable  Idiot who sat late on a December night in the centre block of  the Parliament Buildings, eating  stale sandwiches and drinking  cold black 'coffee while he pondered), what form a Christmas  Eve column should take in the  newspaper at home.  Being an idiot, he was seized  with an impulse to be frank, to  declare that this is not a merry  world.  Pakistanis and Indians shoot  at each other, Israelis and Arabs  promise to shoot at each other.  There is pretty general agreement that the economies and  trade patterns of most nations  COAST-CJH_IxCO_TN  are in bad shape and his own  country is quick to_shout Us Too.  So why not,* he said to himself, ; be honest with the people  and tell them how bad things are  on the rim of the year 1971 and  remind them of that old adage  "Who knows what evil lurks in  the hearts of men." ;  Then!he remembered that a  few hours before, in the House  of Commons, the M.P.s had sung  .Christmas carols while they  were waiting to vote on a bitterly contested issue of tax reforms  and he remarked to himself that  it had been a warming and pleasant.sound in the stale air of the  Green Chamber:  Nevertheless, being a man of  towering  probity   and  limitless  *+0*0**^&*0*0^m  Kinsmen Club  ���^yg^ of Gibsons & District  New Years Eve Ball  Y.M.C.A.

Why not face them with the  hard facts of the armaments  race, the hostility between China  and Russia -, American ghettoes,  the Canadian poor, Apartheid,  the pollution of the airs and. seas  and the murder, robjbery and  rape of which the newspapers  brought daily accounts. Would  this not be the more honest  thing to do?  After all, there was no scientific proof that the event of Jesus Christ's birth actually oc-  ;urred, beyond such' findings as  that, about 6 B.C. by our current  calendar, the planets Mars and  Venus came together visually in  earth's skies and may thereby  have formed the Star of the East  of whilch the bible speaks.  At which' time, and so thinking, he opened a letter from a  stranger which said: "Let us be  thankful for a few moments' of  peace and goodwill at this time  Of year."  ���Then he opened other letters  and cards of similar tone from  people far away, all speaking of  love, hope,; faith, brotherhood^  peace and charity.  The Amiable Idiot was reminded of a biblical passage. He  couldn't remember which book,  although he thought it to be  John. He was no scholar. But he  remembered the quotation. "Yea  though I speaJc with tongue of  angels, except that I have charity, I am but as sounding brass  and as tinkling cymbals."  Many memories of Christmas-  es past came to him. They were  personal things and1 obviously of  no importance to others.  After all, said the Amiable  Idiot to himself, sitting alone in  his office while the cruel north  wind kicked sand out of the old  towers of the Centre Block, 'Miter all, what possible significance could the views of individual men have in a world! where  the demographers tell us that we  are overpopula ting our planet  and must therefore perish at the  hands of the Four Horsemen of  the Ap^alyps*e_ who {are war, ���  strife, famine and pestilence.  Clearly the. world is. not shaped  for individuals and we must  think of masses, masses of people who are all going to perish  of war, strife, famine and pestilence in one immense and conspicuous hecatomb.

I have just obtained a,  large insurance policy and have'  named my wife the beneficiary.  What happens if my wife dies  at the same time I do in an accident .��� does my insfuirance go  to her estate and then pass as  directed in her will? I don't want  this to happen as she has left  everything to her lazy (brother.  A. If you both die at the  same time the Insurance Act  deems your wife, as beneficiary^  to have died first, and the proceeds of your insurance will pass  to your estate and are distributed by your will or. if you do not  have a will the proceeds will go  to your next-of-kin.  Q. My husband, disappeared  on a hunting trip about seven  years ago and no trace was  found of, him or his hunting companion. The search and rescue  people said that there was not  much chance that they could  have, got out of the area where  they were lost. My husband had  several insiuiranfce policies and  the companies will not pay me  (I am the beneficiary) until they  have proof that my husband is  dead: What can I do to make  them pay? ,  A. You should apply to the  court to t have your huslband declared dead for the purpose of  his life insurance policies. .The  Survivorship and Presumption  of Death Act states that where  there are reasonable grounds for  supposing that a person is dead  and where that person has not  been heard from since a time  mentioned in the application the  court anay declare the person  named to be presumed dead for  such.purposes as it thinks fit, or  if satisfied, for all piurposes. As  your husband has not been heard  from by those whom he would  ROOFING & FLOORING  CALL STAN HILSTAD  about your roofing or flooring  Gower Pt. Rd.

My husband died recently  and I learned that he had a  very large life insurance policy  and his mistress was' the-, beneficiary. My husband was not wellr  off and his estate was quite  small ��� can I get some or-all  of this insurance money?  A. Your husband's mistress  will receive the money. The insurance policy basically "is just  a contract whereby yoiur husband made payments to the insurance company on the agreement that, on his death, a certain sum of money would go to  the person he named as beneficiary.  Traffic line  changes coming  A change in traffic line markings is expected to go into effect to conform with standards  ibeing adopted by most provinces  and states in North America.  Yellow lines will separate traf-!  fie flows in opposite directions;  white lines will separate traffic .  moving in the same direction;  and solid yellow lines "will indicate that passing is not allowed.  On two-lane highways the cen-  er line including solid no-passing  lines will be yellow and lane  edge lines will be white.

You can believe it. The  new hymn book published by the  . Anglican and United Churches a  few. months, ago has sold out, ail  185,000 copies. Now officials are  wonderingr how they can appease  eager church memibers until  March when the second printing  will come off press. Already,  there are orders on. hand for  20,000 copies.  The first edition was received  from the printer in October and  distribution to congregations of  , both denominations began soon  afterwards. Price of the new  hymn book is $3.75 in quantity  lots, $4.75 for less than 12 copies.  Six years ago the two churches established a comimittee of 25  clergy and -lay people who  searched out and examined 10,-  000 hymns and' tunes from all  over the world. Finally, 507  hymns were selected, of which  150 are new. Canadian authors  wrote 57 hymns and Canadian  musicians composed 45 of the .  tunes.  "It's the finest hymn book  ever produced; with the finest  type, paper and design," said  Rev. R. H. N. Davidson, vice-  chairman of the joint committee. Allan R. Fleming of Toronto  was the designer; music engraving was done by University  Press, Wiurzburg, Germany, and  printing was by Southan-Murray  of Toronto. In view of the results, Dr. Davidson may be allowed his moment of exultation. .  Bishop Ifrederick H. Wilkinson of Toronto is chairman of  the comimittee. Rev. Stanley L.  Osborne1 of Oshawa is secretary  and Ven. G. H. Johnson of Toronto is associate secretary.  WHATTA BLADE!  A monstrous saw-tooth1 blade  was recently developed by the  engineers of the B.C. Forest Service for land-clearing operations.  The blade weighs 8,430 pounds,  is 20 feet long, and more than  six feet wide. It's mounted on _  the front of a powerful - tractor '  and was first used in 1969 in the  Cranlbrook area.  YOUR GARDEN SOIL  There is a tremendous .difference between soils.. Some are  entirely useless in their natural  state for gardening while others  require little adjustment. Soils  may vary from light, sandy soils  to heavy, almost impervious  clays.  If the soil is sandy, it is easy  to work but dries out quickly and  must Ibe given ample supplies of  organic matter to improve its  water - holding capacity. Clay  soils generally are slower to dry  and retain their nutrient content  longer, but are very difficult to  work. Special garden practices  must be followed to!grow good  crops on this type of soil and  make it easier to work. An ideal  garden soil would be one containing approximately 20 percent  sand, 40 percent clay and 40 percent humus.  Adding fertilizers is not always  the answer. A fertilizer alone  does not always make a productive soil. The percentage of organic matter a soil contains, its  texture and composition, its  acidity or alkalinity, its drain:  age and'the amount of compaction it has received are all factors that determine its potential  productivity.  The soil organic matter content must be at a fairly high level before you can grow quality  garden plants. It increases the  soil's water holding "capacity, assists drainage, allows oxygen Xo:  move through the soil, and retains the valuable nutrients that  would otherwise leach out. -  Fertilizers, often called plant-  foods; help to* supply'the nutrients plants require. There are  two main kinds .organic and inorganic.  Organic fertilizers are those  such as animal wastes, bone-:  meal, bloodmeal, decayed vege-^  table matter and guano. TheseJ,  all supply nurients very slowly  as they decompose, ��� and moist be  broken down by the soil bacteria  Ibefore they become available td  the plants. -  Inorganic fertilizers are usually man-made and are often in a-,  form that can be used directly  by the plant wthout having to go*,  through the process of decompo-?  sition. They are cheaper than organic fertilizers, but an overdose  of  them   can  injure  plants,  so;  In Court  On   Dec.   23,   George   Lowelf-  Caimipbell   of Port  Mellon  was*  charged on two counts of im--  paired driving and refusing  toT  take a breathalyzer test. On the,  fjrst count he was fined $350 and'  his   drivers'   licence   suspended  one month. On the second count  he was fined $200. i  Camiplbell was checked in the��  early morning when his vehicle  was -noticed weaving from- one?  side of the road to the other:.  Upon checking Caimipfbell, it was*  found that'he was in an advanic-T  ed state of intoxication. ���  On Dec. 28, -Billie Lee MeCon-i,  nell of Gibsons entered a plea of  ���guilty to a  change of loitering  by   night.   He  was   fined   $250.*  Court was told that McConnell;  was found in the residence of"  Mirs.    Flumerfelt    of   Roberts  Creek when she returned home.'  McConnell was found asleep on .  the  chesterfield and  the police?  were called. '        l !  they must be used carefully.  A hybrid, group of modern fertilizers are -synthetic types such  as the urea^foraialdehyde kinds,  which usually are related to the  inorganics. They decompose  slowly, supply large quantities  of nitrogen, sometimes as high  as 45 percent, over a long period, and have the advantage of  reducing the possibility of plant  injury.  Plants need a balanced diet  ���composed chiefly of nitrogen,  phosphates and potash. Sometimes more of one than' another  is lacking in the soil and to compensate for this; more of the  missing element should be added  This cannot be determined without a soil test, and the collection of soil for, testing ������ and dispatching it^to a soil-testing laboratory is a tedious and time  consuming job:  Take soil samples from a number of locations .in your garden  in late fall, composite them and  forward a portion to* the soil-  testing laboratory in the off season. ������- _.    ���"    J    '"���*'-  If your garden has enough' humus, an occasional applicaion of  a good balanced fertilizer will  be advantageous. To grow lawns  more emphasis is usually placed  on the nitrogen content of the  fertilizer, and special preparations, based on a 2-1-1 ratio of  nitrogen to phosphates and potash, are usually needed.  To obtain good drainage in  heavy soils, add inorganic material such as coarse peat, straw  or strawy manure. If the soil is  so badly drained that the water  stands for long periods1 after  rains, tile drainage may be necessary, but this is a complicated procedure, and is best carried "  out with experienced help.
