Act 2, scene 2, high point  (By GEORGE MATTHEWS)  : Over the past -two weekends  Driftwood Players presented The  Waltz of the Toreadors by Jean  Anouilh and1 if the performance  Saturday was an indication, the  Players third major production  was a great success.  The play itself, is a brilliantly  biting comedy about a lascivious  old warhorse (General St. Pe)  whose pre World War campaign  trophies include a mistress,'.still  chaste after 17 years liaison, an  --legitimate son and a neurotic  wife confined to a feed which  haV-for 20 years proven to be  th<�� general's most elusive battle*-.  ound.  Ariouiiih's dialogue is cutting  n^l bitterly ironic, while following a careful course of avoiding  both farce and melodrama. The  play is more verbal than visual,  and,. despite many serious draw-  toacfes, the Players wisely chose  the United Ohtarch hall for the  production. As a result, Ifor once  dfialogue was' . clearly audible.  The drawbacks of the hall were  many and not much att_m.pt was  ma de to overcome them such as  a bad seating arrangement, until the final performances.  The play was directed by Colleen Johnson who must take credit for choosing such a, crowd  pleasing production. The artistic  direction was simple arid uri'-ma-  giriative but Miss Johnson's experienced eye avoided most of  the pitfalls. Movement, while  linif-ted by the small set was  somewhat stilted.  ; The set itself was a little too  plain for what might be expected but it was functional and well  constructed. Lighting was sloppy but this too can be overcome.  Tron Johnson, Peter Redd and  Terry Weatherall constructed the  set...  The real strength of the pro--  dtiCton lies in the skill of its experienced performers, especially  Jc?i~i Burnside as the general,  Co!'--vm Jchnson as his wife, Nest  T '-vr's as his mistress and Pat  F"ker ?s the secretary.  ? "r. Burns''de's taxing role was  TOm?dby an overworked voice  ?nd a lack of concenitration in  thn first act, especially in his  cenr-^ with the doctor, Doug  Honeybunn. This lack of concentration disappeared entirely in  sets,   two   and- three   and   his  scenes with Milss Johnson and  Miss Lewis were "the? bestSoif the  evening, especially the final  soeme of act two.  Miss Lewis was excellent as  the mistress, managing to avoid  the melodramatic quality of her  role, showing excellent stage  presence. -  Pat Baker improves with each  role and his was his best performance yet. He still has a tendency to overact but this was  generally under control-Saturday n'ght. His scenes with Miss  Lewis were among the highlights of the ,play. ..<���:'.���  Miss Johnson's performance  was beyond criticism. Whenever  she is on stage the intensity of  the scene is "always at a maximum. Act two', scene two, with  Mr. Burnside and Miss Johnson  was the high point and was as  close to dramatic excellence as  amateur theatre can achieve.  Doug Honeybunn as madam's  doctor, managed with more success than other characters, to  look the part of the character he  played. The role was a little under played and the actor's pac-  ���ing seeaned a little slow.  Minor roles were played with  exceptional skill. The supposedly ugly daughters of the general  were played especially well by  Mary Livingstone and Debby Mc  . Nevdn.  George Cooper as the priest,  Lynn Green as the very attractive Mme. Dupant-Fredaine and  Sandra Johnson as the new maid  all experienced players, gave  polished performances. Barbara  Williams as the maid showed a  natural ability and stage presence- and should be given more  demanding roles in future productions.  In conclusion, despite a few  weak areas, including the need  to educate some members of the  audience not to move around  during the performance, The  Waltz of the Toreadors was a  success.  CUP OF MILK FUND  The Cup of Milk Fund will  hold its annual party at the Bennie home, Hopkins Landing on  Po'nt Road. Refreshments; will  be served. Date of the event will  be Wed., Dec. 15 from 10 a.m.  to 3 p.m.  for West  . When cammenting on the Jack  of Regional District Ratepayers  association candidates for the  Dec. 11 election, LA. Firaser  wiho was named to find some,  offered some praise for Frank  West, director of the Regional  board, who has beenrthe associ-  . ation's prime target for criticism. ���  When Mr.   Fraser,   of  Selma  Park,  was  asked  to  report on  election candidates he apologised  for the lack of the same. He added he had hoped to come up  with .''some more'' but. found he  had not the time, and felt that  Mr. West should be admired for  the time he spent attending all  the meetings while holding down  a job. He added that he thought  Mr. West had got on the -bandwagon in regards to the Lang-  dale-KJilbsons highway arid stir-;  red up a group of people in; his  area'. '���:  Mrs. B. Skellett, West Gibsons  Heights Ratepayer's association  secretary informed the meeting  it: was not true that /Mr. West  had stirred up West; Gibsons  Heights ratepayers, but that the  overall membership had agreed  on a request from Gibsons  Heights association to support  them in their opposition to the  proposed route. Her association  felt the.route was not feasible  and would have an adverse effect on the whole area.  Mrl Bryson said he felt the  "West Gibsons . Heights people  were doing what they should be  doing, trying to solve a problem  in their own area and coming to  the Regional ratepayer association for support.  Mrs. Murray of Selma Park  moved that the Regional asso-  ciatiori contact the proper government department for a master plan of their proposed highway for the entire Sunshine  Coast, also seek a feasibility  study;for a route along the B.C.  Hydro line. The motion, seconds  ed, carried.  A suggestion came from the  floor that Sechelt's Chamber of  Commerce be asked to support a  highway at a more feasible location. Another member thought ���  the Regional Ratepayers association should present its plan for  a new through road. The West  Gibsons Heights petition was  passed around resulting in 33  out of about 35 members signirug  it.  Blaney new  C of C head  Mike Blaney was elected president of Gibsons and District  Chamiber of Commerce at the  December dinner meeting Monday night at Cedars Inn. Vice-  presidents will be Barry Anderson and Audrey Hinz. Phil Gordon takes over the post of treasurer and Shirley Janowski re-  imains as secretary. Three women hold executive positions.  Directors will be Mickey Par-  sey, Winston Robinson, Lorraine  Goddard, Ruth Baker, Jack  White, Larry Boyd and Otto  Oder-matt.  ^ Chairman Larry Labonte in his  stepping down message hoped  for a good 1972 for the chamber  and felt that this new executive  showed greater strength within  the chamber. He felt younger  people should be doing more  within the chamber as there  were many challenges. The  chamber should be used to help  the district solve its difficulties.  Retiring chairman Mr. Labonte  was given the position of being  a co-ordinator for the executive. Coast News, Dec. 8, 1971.  School Book Week winners  ny and unusual.

If Gibsons voters need something to think over in connection  with the municipal vote Saturday, think of Gibsons position in the  scheme of things on the Sunshine Coast.  The surrounding or. riufal area, of Gibsons means a great deal  . to village merchants. Gibsons is the trading centre for more than  half the Sunshine Coast population. Yet Gibsons as a municipal  unit appears to be in continual opposition to the operations of the  Regional board which is working for the entire area, including  Gibsons. Our previous mayor, Fred Feeney, was doing what he  could to co-opeirate with the Regional board. Mayor Wally Peterson  who followed him has assumed that Gibsons is a separate entity  which can dictate to the Regional board,  Back in 1966 when Charles Gooding was Gibsons village clerk,  Mr. Gooding, in his report to council covering the year 1966, had  this to say. ������'���������  "Participation in the Regional District: This is a political,issue  and the pros and cons are being discussed' mostly on the basiis of  what we are going to get out of it. I would suggest that some  thought be given to the opposite approach, what can we put into  it. Gibsons is the larger of the two municipalities' on the Sunshine  Coast and I am' sure that its people are interested in what happens  in the area* surrounding them.. The village should therefore be interested in helping with the planning and development of the district and to this end its voice Should be heard on the Regional  board of directors. -  ''Respectfully submitted, C. F. Gooding, clerk to the municipal  council." (Mr. Gooding is now secretary-treasurer of the Reigional  ���board.) *  There is another angle for the voter to consider and it is one  which has been in the -minds of a good many residents of the area*  some of whom have been vocal enough to maintain there were too  many men involved in real estate on Gibsons coundil. This leads  to"something which (Startled many mayors and aldermen at the last  convention of the Union of B.C. Murticipalities. Rev. A. E.: King of  Victoria's Metropolitan United Church in his prayer which opened  the sessions said: "Give us the inner joy which comes from the  realization that we have been true to those hopes and worthy of  that trust. May we place people before property ��� the needs of  the many before the affluence of the few; and the hopes of the  future be-fore the regrets of the past.".  Voters should also remember that Mayor. Peterson informed'  council he desired to have them sit with Him next year. What has  happened? There is one-alderman left. Two have retired and the  third is opposing him for the mayoralty: . .  For the other two elections, two seats on the Regional board,  there does not appearAto be a logical reason.why Chairman J. H.  Tyner and Director Frank West should not be re-elected. Chairman  Tyner represents Pender Harbour area and Director West the Gibsons rural area.  A word about the vacant seat on Gibsons council, vacant because no one was nominated to fill-this one year seat left when  Aid. Ken Goddard decided to run for the mayor's Chair. The fact  no one volunteered for nomination leaves the seat open until the  new council can meet and decide on an appointment. There is a  woman, well-known in Gibsons, who has been convinced she would  Ibe a good nominee. With this the Coast News heartily agrees.  On Saturday, where there is to be a vote, get out and vote. A  piddling number of votes does not give any candidate assurance he  is wanted.  5-10-20 years ago  chief of Gibsons fire department  15 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's Claytons open a new  Tom Boy store.    '  November precipitation on 11  days totalled 3.61 .inches. There  were 10 days in which the temperature dropped below freezing.  The Coast News raised its annual subscription rate from $2  I o.$2.50 per year.  , FIVE YEARS AGO  A suggestion came before Gibsons council that it should instruct its hired planners to look  into extension of village boundaries and consider the problem  of water utility control.  Gibson's OAPO re-elected William Haley as president for his  seventh .tei_n in that office.  In.his annual report to Gibsons  ���council. Clerk Charles Gooding  recommended Gibsons representation on the newly formed Regional District board to help with  the planning and development of  the d strict.  10 YEARS AGO  Consideration of expanding to  take in the area along the highway from Bal's Lane to North  Road was tackled by Gibsons  council.  November was wet with 10.65  inches of rain and snow. The  normal average was 7.36 inches'.  High temperature was 55 and the  low 25.  Bill   Scott  was   again  elected  20 YEARS AGO  More than 70 persons attended* a meeting on the water supply to hear provincial water engineer T. S. Conway outline proposals for an increased water  supply.  Three school trustees were returned by acclamation nomination day thus continuing the  board as it was the previous  year.  Maintaining suppers were too  costly to prepare for people who  do not attend, Sechelt's Board  of Trade meeting will be supper-  less until further notice.  CHARLIE AND THE  CHOCOLATE FACTORY  Curtis Crego (12) Madeira Park"  Surprisingly enough my favorite book character is not Charlie  Bucket but Willy Worika who  owns Wonka's Chocolate "Factory  Willy Wonka is a quick-witted*  old man who because of spies  fired his old workers and  brought in some Ooimpa-*Loom-  pas. Oompa-Loompas are small  African natives > who only came  up to your knee.  Willy Wonka wore a black top  hat on his head. He wore a tail  coat made of beautiful pjumcolored velvet. His trousers were  bottle green and gloves pearl  gray. In one hand^he carried a  fine gold-topped walking "cane.  , Covering, his chin was a neat  pointed* black goatee.   ,  Besides   the   Oompa-Loompas  just what was so unusual about  Willy Wonka. Well for one his  v factory which is many times bigger than any other. Another is  .��� the chocolate river which i's inside fhis factory. The riverhas  delicious  grass   and  buttercups  growing along the bank, and on  the river, floats a most peculiar  boat.   His   candies   are   square  candies  that look  round,  everlasting goto stoppers, hair toffee,  cavity-filling caramels and many  more. ���������������*.  Willy Wonka invited five children and their mothers and fathers to come and see his factory. This is something which  no one has ever been allowed to  do before. Slowly, one by one,  the children disobey Willy',until  only Charlie is left. When Willy  Wonka realizes this, he shouts  "Hurry, hurry!" and rushes  them to his glass elevator. And  then Willy,does something which  he has always wanted to do. He  sends the glass elevator^ right  through the roof! Charlie and his  grandpa think all is lost, but  not Willy. First they rush down ���.;  and take a look at the disobedient children and their mothers  and fathers going home. Then  they rush up in the air (it can  fly now) and over, to Charlie's  house. On the way over Willy  tells Charlie something important. "Charlie," he says, "the  day you are old enough to run  .it, the factory is yours."   >.  They crash through the roof;!  of Charlie's house right above  the old folks. Charlie's other  two grandmas and grandfather  think they are doomed. As soon  as the old fplks are calimed, Willy explains what has happened  and what he plans to do. The old  folks (Who except for grandpa  Joe haven't been out of bed for  twenty years) find that their bed  won't fit through the doors of  the house. "No problem*," says  Willy as he shoves the bed into  the elevator. The rest follow.  Willy has saved ithe day for  Charlie Bucket, his mother and  father and the old folks.  MY FAVORITE  Mickey Donley (13)  Madeira Park  My favorite character is the  g.Tl in the story The Island of  the* Blue Dolphins which was  written by Scott O'Dell. J don't  know her name because she. was  telling the story and all she said  was "I" so it didn't mention her  name.  The reason why I liked her  was that she was so brave and  she was vea*y friendly to this  other girl she met. She was very  talented' too because she was  ithe only one on the Island and  she had to make her own house  and canoe. A pack of wild dogs  killed her brother that she loved  so much. The leader of the pack  was injured but she helped it  and made it-her pet. That goes  to show she was nice to the animals. The .times that, she was  cr-Uel was when she killed fish  and animals to eat. That was  understandable because she had  to survive.  She was quite boyish but she.  sort of had to be tG survive on  an island where only she lived.  When she got injured she was  able to take care of herself without any medicine. The most help  to her was nature. She must  have been treated to nature before because, before she had her  house she slept outside in the  cold, but it didn't hurt her one  bit.  When the people came to pick  her up to take her to the mainland, miles away, she was many  years older and she had grown  up a lot too.  The island called in ithe book  The Island of the Blue Dolphins,  was first settled by Indians in  albout 2000 B.C., but it was not  'discovered- by white men -until  1602.  ROBINSON  CRUSOE  Neil Fraser (9) Langdale  In my opinion Robinson Crusoe  was a. very clever man. After,  he had been ship-wrecked' on a  sand-fear he managed to keep  himself alive on an island for  many years. He spent many  hours building a raft so that he  could get out to the big ship and  get many of the useful articles  still left on it. It took him many  trips to get these .things. Things  like food, grain, guns and gunpowder, tools, two cats and a  dog. He also rescued a Bible  which he read each' day. He was  smart enough to build himself  a skin tent surrounded by a high  fence of pegs driven into the  ground. He planted grain from  the ship. For many months it  didn't grow, but because he  prayed every day, the plants  came up.  Each year he learned more  about the island, and1 use'd a lot  of the things he found to make  his life easier. He was not always successful.

Louie walked home with his  pet and a money bag.  chalk pencil and blackboard.  A couple of days later, Louie's  fa-ther broke into a store and  stole a trumpet from an instrument store. Louie then finds a  girl friend swan named Serena.  Louie and Serena left to go to a  new place. Louie then got a new  job. His job was to lead a boat  around the lake playing the  trumpet. He scon got s0 much  money he had to carry a money  bag around his neck. He had a  trumpet, chalk board, chalk pencil and a money /bag around his  .neck.  Louie quit that job and worked  at a boys' ca-irlp. He saved a boy  from- drowning. For, doing this  he got a Swimmer's medal. Louie  also put that around his neck.

SNOOPY  Leslie Jenkinson  (10)  Langdale  My favorite book character is  Snoopy, you know Snoopy of  Charlie Brown. If you don't I'll  tell you. Well, Snoopy is a dog  from Peanuts. He acts like a  person but doesn't talk, and he  does the queerest things. I like  it when he acts as> if he's the  Red Baron. He wears a red scarf  and a green helmet and also  goggles. His plane is his dog  house.  I don't know how Peppermint  Patty can think Snoopy is a person. I read in a book once *_hat  she liked the way Snoopy played  baseball and her enthusiasm has  sort of blinded her. Imagine, a  dag playing baseball. He plays it  ipretty. good too. My mom arid,  dad, my sister and I just love it  when he kisses Lucy, and does a  whole lot of stupid things. He's  "really funny though.

Point of law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Q. I am (planning to do all  the contracting fo*r a new -house  I am having built. Someone told  me that I will have to hold back  15% of the cost of the house until it is completed. Is this correct?  A. Not entirely. The person  you were talking to no doubt was  referring to the provisions1 of the  Mechanics' JDein Act. Accor__!ng  to this act you must hold back  15% of the value of each contract until 40 days after the work  covered by that contract has  Ibeen icompletied. Therefore, you  will have to hold back 15% of  the plumber's bill until 40 days  after he has done all of the  plumbing work, 15% of the elee-  <tr_cian's 'bill until 40 days after  ��� he ihas done all of the electrical  work and so on with each contract yau make.  Q. I am in the business of  renting heavy equipment. One  of the construction firms that I  rented a bulldozer to has just  gone bankrupt and I have not  (been palid either for my rental  charge or for repairs to the bulldozer required, during the job.  Cam I file a Mechanic's Lien  against the property where the  contractor used the bulldozer?  A. First of all your claim for  the cost of the repairs cannot be  included in the mechanic's lien  Secondly, your claim for the  rental will depend on whether  or not you provided an operator  with the ��� bulldozer.  If you  did  not, you will not be aible to claim  a mechanic's, lien; if you did,  your claim for the lien will depend ori the amount of control  tihe contractor had over the way  your operator did the job. If, as  ���is usually the case, the operator  was just told to accomplish certain tasks then you will fee class  ed as a sub-contractor and thus  be entitled to a mechanic's lien  for the -ttach-ine rental arid your  operator's, salary; if, however,  the* contractor told the operator  how to do the job your claim to  a lien is doubtful.'If you do not  halve a lien right you will have  a clacm as a creditor in the ibarik  ruptcy proceedings but you will  not likely get" the full amount of  your rental- fee. In any event,  you should consult a lawyer. 11'  Q.   I am in the used/furniture  ibusiness.

Calling home  for the  holidays?  Here are some  suggestions to  make it easier.  There is a 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.  Fl RST ��� 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.  So, give them a call  for Christmas.

He had lived with Ms sister Dorothy (Mrs. D. L. Johnson) for  many years.  He was born at Wiheatland,  Manitoba Feb. 28, 1905 and saw  active service during the Second  World War. He was a memiber  of the Manitoba branch of the  Canadian Legion.  As a ohef he worked in hotels  in Toronto and Manitoba, operating a cafe in Rapid City, Mani-i  toba in the 1950s. Cremation, his  own choice, followed the funeral  service.  Carpet Service  Burritt Bros, was founded as  a carpet service firm in January, 1907 in Vancouver. Cutting,  sewing and installing of carpets  was done for pioneer Carpet retailers, private and' commercial  customers. The original installation and subsequent maintenance  in the old Vancouver Hotel was  among the early day contracts.  The firm developed improved  sewing techniques and a reputation in the trade for superior  "jb-ning and seaming. Sewing is  preferred even today by the  fairm, and it avoids, wherever  possible a recently developed  sfubstitute method of seaming.  Carpet cleaning proved a natural addition to _he services offered.. It is logical that all-round  carpet experts can appraise a  material and its condition before  cleaning. Some carpets can not  be thoroughly cleaned without  great depreciation.  The fdirm found as it serviced  various large retailers, that it  frequently was installing an inadequate or wrong choice of carpet. This often was due to rapidly changing and inexperienced  sales personnel. This led to Burritt Bros. Carpet Sales Division  where the very first consideration was and is given t0 guidance for the buyer, both from a  performance and a. decor point  of view.  iBur_-tt Bros.

Sechelt's council anticipates  that if there is to be any dhange  in the lease covering the former  government wharf area, that it  would be informed by provincial  authorities.  This hope was expressed at  last week's meeting, when it considered a letter from provincial  authorities stating that the Art  James company, Seohelt Marina and Resorts Ltd., which held  the lease on the whanf area was  being reorganized and that Rivtow Straits Ltd. would be involved.  Council thoughts oh the matter covered the possibility of a  marina and hotel in the, wharf  area.

Students at Sechelt Elementary school and Elphinstone Secondary school were fortunate in  receiving a visit from this year's  patron for Young Canada's Book  Week, Chief Dan George, who'  taught them an ancient Indian  prayer to the Great Spirit. Unfortunately the Chief's schedule  was far too crowded for him to  be able to visit all the schools.  The band from the Sechelt Residence provided musical enter-'  tairament, and Chief Dan George  expressed his pride Jin their  achievement and his gratitude to  the teachers who bad helped to  make this possible.  Open houses in the libraries of  Roberts Creek, Langdale and  Madeira Park Elementary  schools were held to coincide  with parent-teacher interviews,  and district librarian Allan J.

PIERRE, MP  COAST-CHQ-COTIN  UNITED NATIONS,- New York  ��� Thoughts on the strange arts  of diplomacy, few of them mine.  One of the world's greatest  diplomats was probably Talleyrand, Napoleon's foreign minister. After Napoleon's defeat, Talleyrand represented the new royal government of France at the  peace conference and to the puzzlement of all concerned, contrived to appear more as the  victor than the vanquished. As' a  result, France emerged after  Waterloo almost intact.  Lord Fisher, former British  Sea Lord, quotes Talleyrand on  the subject in his biography:  "In order to destroy a prejudice fairly generally current, I  must here point out that diplomacy is in no way a science of  cunning and dup-icity. If good  faith is necessary anywhere, it  is especially so in political transactions, for it is good faith that  makes' them strong and enduring."      ,-  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have yon  AL'S USB) FURNITURE  WE BUT BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons ��� 886-2812  A less kind view of, diplomacy  is the slogan "Protocol, Alcohol,  ��� GeritoL"  Yet another desc-iption is offered in the following parable,  which we should all take to  heart.  ��� A Vancouver woman on vacation left her pet cat in care of a  friend. A few days after arriving  in Montreal she telephoned him.  "How's my cat?"  "Dead."  "You can't mean it."  "Sure I mean it. The cat's  dead. All nine lives gone. Dead."  "How can you do this to me,"  she said, "How could you be so  undiplomatic. You know how  fond I was of that cat."  "How was* I t0 be diplomatic?"  "Well, when I first phoned,  you could have said, 'The cat's  climbed a telephone pole and  can't get down. But I've phoned  the fire department and they're  coming. ..' "  "Oh-, yeah."  "And then I'd phone a couple  of hours later and you'd say,  'Well, when the firemen got here  the cat jumped and" it's hurt.  We've got it in the pet hospital.'  And then I'd phone later and  you'd say that the cat's condition had become critical1. . .  don't you see. that would have  been diplomatic."  "Okay," he said.

Land policies  are  The provincial lands department in outlining its policies to  reipreseritaitives of Regional Districts has explained that the referral system now practiced and  the policies which have evolved  to ensure devel_*pment and curtail speculation are restrictive  in themselves.  At present all applications for  " Crown Lands are referred to the  following agencies where applicable: Regional Districts, ��� muni-,  cipaiities, health officers, de-  pa_*nient of highways, stock as-  socialtions, grazing division of  the forest service, Farmers' Institutes, Fish and WHd-i_e  branch, clubs and associations  that "may have a special inter-1  ���'.est.. ���  The Lands Branch is- charged  with the responsibility of managing a resource of the province  for the benefit of the people of  the province and dispositions are  only made after a most catreful  examination of the land itself  and the use to be made of same.  Over 50% of all land applications  filed are subsequently rejected  because the use is incompatible  with other resource requirements,  or the site itself is unsuitable  for the intended purpose indicated oh the application form. The  department' believes that under  present land adtoiinistratibn policies there.is ample scope for resolving most prdblems in the rural areas of the province so far  as they relate to Crown land  without introducing further regulations.  In conclusion, the lands branch  does not subscribe to the theory  that all peoples of the province  must live in urban airea��. One  of the most pressing problems  today is urbanization and as a  reaction to the crowding of cities', many people, particularly  the; young, are seeking a new  way of life in rural areas. The  deparltanent feels its,policy; designed as it is to apply to the 1  whole province, should be able  to meet the needs of people dement. Certainly from' now on it  siring space in a rural envdron-  hojpes to work with Regional  planners to ensure development  in ithe rural setting which will  complement and' serve not only  other resource users in the area  but people from urban centers  seeking a rural environment or  recreational ppportunoties.

You'll find the help ytu need  In Ihe directory  'This year you have over a million new homes to visit and  over two million changes of address!"  m  Consumers  news  and  views  by  Consumers' Association of Canada  l^Xvi-*-  "\i^Vi!:J  The desire to look attractive is  age old: and cosmetics have been  big business from ancient times.  Canadians spend over $300 million annually on these products  or, a little better than $15 for  every man, woman and child in  the cbunitry.   *'  There is a fine line between  what may be called a cosmetic  and! what may Ibe called a drug  but regardless of type or cost,  both come under the Food and  Drugs Act of the Department of  Health and Welfare.  When is a grooming aidf a cosmetic and when is it a drug?  The Food and Drugs Act defines  cosimeties as material's used for  cleansing, improving or altering  skin, hair or teeth and includes  deodorants and perfumes. When  a cosmetic type product does  create a physical change in the  skin, for example a bleaching  cream to treat freckles, it is  then classed as a drug and must  come under the more stringent  regulations of the Food and  Drugs Act.  Deodorants are classed as cosmetics and anti-perspdrants are  called- drugs. Most hair prepara^  tions and shampoos are cosmetics but those marketed for the  ROOFING & FLOORING  CALL STAN HILSTAD  about your roofing or flooring  n___ls  Gower Pt. Rd. Ph.

A toothpaste is a cosmetic when it cleans, whitens or  brightens the teeth. It is classed as a drug when special ingredients are added to help prevent  tooth decay. If a" therapeutic  claim is made to help prevent  tooth decay, dandruff, ete.> then  the manu-acturer must supply  clinical evidence to substantiate  the claim and the names of the  active drug ingredients must appear on the label.  Some beauty products (like  hair dyes and hormone creams)  carry special warnings on the label and it is" wise to heed all precautions, follow directions carefully and "use only as directed."  Regulations do not allow  fraudulent or misleading glamor  claims in cosmetic advertising  such as facial rejuvenation, ceil  regeneration, or restores hair,  but some puffery within reasonable limits is accepted: Rigid  insistence on the j>lain unvarnished facts, it is felt, would rob  cosmetics of romantic appeal  while sewing ho useful purpose.  "Gives that breathlessly young  look" is a more pleasing, if perhaps not wholly, accurate, way  of describing a product which  "promotes rejuvenation of epithelial tissues."  Some, people have extreme allergic reactions to certain chemicals contained in cosmetics. But  if' all known or suspected substances causing allergic reactions were to be prohibited, it  would almost eliminate the manufacture of cosmetics. Almost  everyone is allergic to something and so no substance is  truly non-allergenic. If you are  sensitive to ingredients in a certain cosmetic brand, switch and  the proflbiem may disappear.  There are special cosmetics on  the market for people sensitive  to particular ingredients. They  are called hypd-aHergenic ���  meaning less likely to cause an  adverse reaction.
