He was followed by  Wayne Smith 17, and. Art Dew  13, both playing very good  games.  All the games, including  Senior Boys, previously sched  tiled for this Wednesday  against Pender Harbor have  been cancelled.  The Senior Boys will -begin  the New Year by travelling  to Powell River to take part  in a tournament hosted, by  Max Cameron Tartans on  Jan, 5 and 6 weekend.  Wednesday Pender. Harbour  Sakinaux will meet Elphinstone Cougars in a series of  basketball games involving all  junior and senior boys and  girls   teams.  Elphinstone's Senior Cheerleaders held a successful Bake  Sale Thursday noon in the  school foyer. Through the sale v  of cake, cookies, and other  cookies, decorated along the  Christmas theme, the girls  raised some money which will  help with travelling expenses.  school carol festival  Standing room only was  evident long before the school  district Festival (Carol concert opened shortly after 7  p.m. Monday night. Gibsons  Elphinstone gym was packed,  including 170 pupils from all  schools, Elphinstone's band,  bands from other schools, also  - assisting rnusicians and an  audience   of   more   than   600.  Promoters   of   the   festival  ranging from Supt. R. R. Hari-  - na and school principals, with  Allan J. Crane as master of  ceremonies, should still, be receiving congratulations for the  excellent ��� manner in which  students and the public responded.  Pupils came from all schools  and in separate choirs displayed their^ virtuosity all the. way  from grade one \ up to high  school age. There were 11 sections yio the program, giving  each of "ihe schools a turn on  stage.:XXX .:���.:��� .r ���. ��� [ y.  As it would take consider-  t able tinie arid space to eyalu-  ' ate the work of the instructors and their pupils let -it be  sufficient to say that this carol  festival should become an annual fixture.  Elphinstone gym has' never  before had a chorus of some  six or seven hundred . voices  raised in singing Christmas  - carols and if you were not  there you missed an unforget-  a'ble treat.  The Elphinstone band played exceptionally well and revealed that it contained a considerable nuiriber of players  who could solo quite well.  ' The other highlight would  be the singing of the former  members of Sechelt Elerrien-  tary school choir, followed by  the singing of the present  large Sechelt Elementary choir.  Another feature was the  handling bf the Sechelt Elementary band which produced  music aided by a piano in a  somewhat novel manner.  However the lusty singing  of the 170 pupils plus the addition of some 600 adult voices  really put something in the  carol singing. Elphinstone gym  has never heard the like of it  before. The hall really rocked!  Mo m  ifflerrp Cfjrtgtma?  Nextweek  no paper  till Jan. 3  p. O. HOURS  Gibsons post office will NOT  be open after 12.30 Saturday  afternoon.

The chain of circumstances  which, culminated iri this presentation reaches back to the  visit paid to this, coast by  Captain George Vancouver  in 1792. During his explorations for the British admiralty  he named the broad reach of  water up-coast from Point Atkinson, after Lord Richard  Howe,    then   senior    admiral.  In 1860 Capt. George Richards during a more detailed  survey of Howe Sound, named  its islands, channels and surrounding mountains after individuals prominent at the  time of the exploration^ He  gave to the promontory near  the Sound's western entrance,  the name . Mount Elphinstorie,  When settlements grew up,  a variety of organizations and  businesses borrowed the nariie  of this prominent mountain.  When a secondary school was  built at the 'foothills of the  mountain, it was given the  name  Elphinstone.  School board  nomination Jan. 3  NEW PIN UP GIRL  Kim Crosby became a Pin  Up Girl the hard way when  she swallowed a pin shortly  after Dressmaking class on  Friday. After a quick flight  to Vancouver to have it remov  ed she gets the point that pins  are not made to put in the  mouth.        ������-���v ;���"������  Last week's meeting of the  school board set Jan. 3 for  the nomination of a school  trustee to replace Trustee  Bernard Mulligan, who resigned When the education minister turnd down the appointment of Don Head to fill a  board vacancy.  If  an   election  is  necessary  Jan. 13 was set for the vote.  Electors in Area B from Davis  Bay to Port Mellon will vote.  There is still a vacancy on  the seven trustee board as  the resigned Chairman Sheila  Kitson has not been replaced.  An error occurs in the ad-  vertiseriient covering this vote.  Where it says Elphinstone Elementary school as a polling  place it should read Elphinstone Secondary school.  Scotland, following a visit  there sent Lord Elphinstone  a copy pf the Gibsons Landing  Story "by Lester Peterson, "in  which something of the family association with this district is alluded Jto.      y  Within a few months of the  presentation: of. the book, Lord  Elphinstone paid, a visit to the  school that bears his name.  To express gratitude for the  recognition given to his his-  , toric family by this community  he donated a cup well known  to students and graduates, the  Elphinstone trophy..  As a result of further correspondence with Eric Thomson Lord Elphinstone also said  that Elphinstorie Secondary  school could make use of his  family coat .of arms in any  way it thought fit. .''������--���  A number bf attempts to  achieve a carving of the coat  of arms, failed: A year ago.  Petra Petersen, then enrolled  in grade 10 announced that her  father having heard of the  problem volunteered to carve  the piece. Industrial arts teacher Bob Bjornson and his  senior woodwork classes assembled material for the project and participated wherever  power tool cutting could be  used.  Hans Peterson of Port Mellon qualified as a master carver in Germany and spent  some years at his trade there.  Since his arrival in Canada he  has carved only to retain the  sense of satisfaction derived  from a job well done.  Working in the basement of  his home, with hand chisels,  some of them old. in his grandfather's time, the carver, when  tiriie and mood were in conjunction, gradually .completed  the gargantuan task over the  last year. To coriimemorate  the school's own particular  heraldry he added a cougar,  passant below the escutcheon.  Friday evening last week  Petra Petersen on behalf of  her father received from Principal Don Mongomery a letter  of thanks from the entire  school  for  this  amazing  gift.  Androcles and Lion next  -a  Driftwood Players will recognize the festive season with  a production of the children's  play Androcles and the Lion.  This light-hearted look at the  old story will be presented, in  Gibsons Elementary School  Gymnasium 7.30 pjn Friday  Dec 22 and at 2:30 on Sat.

Montgomery, Elphinstone Secondary school principal in a letter to the school  board asks for a special appeal  to the department of education to consider the needs of  the school.or a second referent  "~ liuih .it - the^earliest possible  date..;/, ;,y  Here is the letter which was  read to school trustees at last  Thursdays meeting:  "Everyone at Elphinstone,  staff arid students, were greatly disappointed with the re-:  suits of Saturday's referendum.  '*Our physical education pro  gram is in serious need of improvement, and we should not.  x. waste any time in exploring  other avenues to obtain our  new facilities.  "Two possibilities come to  mind: first a special appeal  to the department of education, stating our need, and second along with this, an application to re-place the referendum, before the local electors  at   the  earliest  date  possible.  "The staff and students are  still most willing to help you  in a renewed effort to obtain  the facilities  at  Elphinstone."  Lockstead sees  help for schools  Don Lockstead, passing  through Gibsons, dropped the  hint that the government may  take a look at education referenda which suffer defeats, due  to various circumstances, may  receive help from the department  in   new legislation.  As regards the recreation  centre he felt there is a reasonable chance it might be included in the provincial government one-third cost grant.  He would not go any further  except to offer hope for some  assistance.  While in the area he visited  roads, council, Indian, education and hospital officials.  nunmmraHmMflraumnaEaBi^^  FIREMEN HELP CAROLIERS  First Roberts Creek Cub  pack and the choir from Roberts Creek school will be out  caroling in the Roberts Creek  area Wednesday night from  6.30 to 8.30.

Almighty God our heavenly Father, Who makest us glad with  the yearly remembrance of the birth of Thine only son Jesus  Christ, grant that we may joyfully receive Him for our Redeem  er, and evermore be blessed with His saving light, His saving  love, and His saving power. May Thy blessings rest upon us and  upon all our work and worship done in His name; help us to  glorify Thy holy name and worthily serve our beloved country;  and may the spirit of Christ, reigning in the hearts of men  everywhere, bring peace to men of good will. AMEN.  I heard the bells on Christinas Day  Their old, familiar carols play,  and wild and sweet The words repeat  Of peace on earth, good will to men!  I thought how, as the day had come  The belfries of all Christendom  Had rolled along the unbroken song  Of peace on earth, good will to men!  And in despair I bowed my head:  "There is no peace on earth," I said.  "For hate is strong And mocks the song  Of peace on earth, good will to men.*"  Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:  "God is not dead; nor doth He sleep!  The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,  With peace on earth, goodwill to men!"  HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW, 1807-1882  With the world so travel-conscious, itfs little wonder that the  practice of communications has broadened in recent times. Then  to6,"distances in this modern jet age have shrunk, and it isn't at  all uncommon to hear youngsters talk about their jaunts abroad  as though the places they visited were within a stone's throw.  That being the case, the ability at this time of the year to say  "Merry Christmas" in many languages would seem in order.  Therefore what follows are a few ways you can greet your  friends from foreign lands: -  Bohemia, Vesele Vanoce; Bulgaria, Ohestita Koleda; Croatian,  Sretah Bojic; Denmark, Glaedelig Jul; Wales, Nadolig Llawen;  Ukrariia, Srozhdestvom Krisovym; Spanish speaking countries,  Feti?' Navidad; Portuguese (Portugal, Brazil) Boas Festas; Poland,; Weselych Swiat; Italy, Buone Feste Natalizie; Germany,  Froliche Wienachten; France, Joyeux Noel; Ireland, Nodlaig  Mhaith Chugnat.  The above, of course, are just a few ways of saying "Merry  Christmas" in foreign tongues, nor would we attempt to pronounce them. But anyway, anywhere in the Christian world,  the spirit of Christmas exists and when offered with sincerity is  instantly understood no matter what the language..  So   "Merry Christmas To All".

Gibsons Elves  spread cheer  among needy  BY ED  THOMSON  Tacked to the door of Gibsons   United   Church,   a   sign  read,   donations  to   the  elves  received back door of church- .  basement. ,  , So we plowed through the  freshly drifted snow, to the  back door - basement. It was  locked! . So there we were  pounding ��� away on the basement door "and no response.  Perhaps it's because Elves are -  such fey folk, that it is so difficult to get them to come out  in the open and identify themselves, particularly Gibsons  elves. Elf in. folk prefer to do  their good, deeds behind the  cloak of anonymity for this is  the way ���'; Gibsons Christmastime benefactors, non-religious, non-profit-making organization, the Elves, prefer to  operate.  Indeed the only name that  emerges is that of the Rev.  Jim Williamson, who makes  the fey-folk! welcome to use of  the church basement.  So the Elves celebrate the  second year of their good  work among the more needy,  assisted by members of Gibsons Fire Dept. < who collected  and repaired more than 150  children's toys and turned  them over to the local group.  Good Gibson people, generously contributed food and Christ  mas treats to the church last  Friday and Saturday.  In groups of five, the Elves  put together each hamper during the year, one grocery item  each month and a penny a day  typical of such hampers to be  distributed throughout the  length and breadth of the Sun  shine Coast this Christinas  will include a plump 15 Ib.  turkey, Christmas cake,  shrimps, cheese apple juice  and chocolates, not forgetting  of course a good selection of  canned goods and, where indicated, children's toys and clothing.  Laat year, shortly before  the local group was organized,  33 hampers were packed and  went out to less fortunate fam  ilies and senior citizens. At  the present rate, donations are  still coming in, the total may  well reach 50 or more hampers and all this was accomplished by a growing membership of 65 non-identified Elves  and not a single hamper is  given out in the name of,  sweet charity, but rather as a  warm, practical community  gesture.  So if you have delayed in  sending in your donation whether it be money, food, goodies,  toys or clothing, or if you  should have a yen to join this  merry group, age no consideration.

If the Judge lets you off  with a $250 fine for the first offence, you can consider yourself  lucky. For having accumulated ten  penalty points, the Superintendent  >of Motor Vehicles will assess you  a charge of $25.00 which will be  .used to pay for public information  messages like the one you are now  reading. Add to this the $50 to several hundred dollars you'll spend on a  lawyer and you've dropped quite a  bundle.  Suspension hE��� __&  had so much as a parking ticket in  thirtyyearsof driving, you can expect  to haveyour'right to drive" reviewed by the Superintendent of Motor-  Vehicles. On his judgement and your  driving record.your suspension may  be one month, three months, six  months, or even indefinitely.  5 Insurance  The costs don't  stop at fines  and lawyers. When your insurance  company hears all about it, your  insurance premium will be surcharged. Thatmeansyour insurance  rates will soar until you can prove  yourself a good risk again. That  could take years if you have no more  problems. And here's another point  to ponder. Had you injured or killed  someone while impaired, your  liability coverage was void anyhow.  Your insurance company will .pay  the claim, but they may demand-repayment frorn you.  6PlihlSfiil'll'"-'Criminal  courts'  I UUIIbliy   swarm with court  reporters. In some smaller communities, your conviction will make  front page news. They will list the  details of your arrest, trial, conviction, breathalizer reading, fine, and  suspension. They will print, all this,  along with your name and address,  for all your friends and business associates to read. It is the coup de  graceybu can expect aboutone week  after the trial.  These are the hard cold facts of  how a jovial evening can turn into a  nightmare.The police have seen too  many dead children to have much  patience.The courts have heard too  many tragedies to give you much  mercy. And that's the way it is.

"WThen  a person's wages are garnished, let us say the plaintiff has  a judgment against the defendant for $2,000, the employer  must do one of three things:  (1) pay the entire $2,000 into  court (and deduct from the  defendant's (the employee's)  wages, or (2) pay nothing into court and file a dispute  note, or (3) make a partial  payment into court and file  a dispute note as to the balance. Which, of these three  actions the employer takes  depends on how much wages  if any are owing to the employee, the defendant. It  should be borne in mind however that, in general, an employee must receive 70% of  his wages.  Question 1: One of our  clerks had. her wages garnished. She said we should  just give her a post dated  cheque, dated after pay day,  which we did. Now we have  received a document from the  plaintiff's lawyer with a date  for a court hearing, claiming  that we have to pay the whole  amount garnished ourselves.  This amount is more than the  clerk/s wages. What should  we do?  Answer: You are having  what is known as garnishee  proceedings taken against you.  As you have disobeyed ai  court order you can T_e forced  to pay, but not necessarily the  / full amount garnished. Unless you want to force the  plaintiff to prove its case by  subpoening all your; records  or returned -cheques- appear  in court and explain to the  judge What occurred.

Q: One of our employee's  wages was garnished but he  drew his pay in advance.  What do we have to do?  A: You must file a dispute  note with the court, explain-  _Jng__the.4_3itua.ion and stating  that; there 'was no y wages ow-  - ing at the time the garnishing order was served upon  you. v   ;'; ���";���,...���  ������';; ������ ������"  Q: Our-^receptionist's wages  were garnished two days before payday. She didn't have  any actual pay legally owing  her,, ; but we were planning  on paying her a (bonus. We  dated the bonus cheque after  pay i day; but she needed  some;money that pay day, so  we loaned her some money.  We filed a, dispute note like  the garnishing order said,  saying we didn't owe the employee any money. Did we do  the. right thing?  A: This is a sort,'of border  line case. The amount that  must be paid into . court, together with a dispute note,  if necessary, is the amount  legally owing by the employer  to the employee at the instant  in time when the garnishing  order was served- on the employer. Apparently you are  correct in what you have  done, but if the same thing  had Been dorie in another  situation where ,the entire  transaction was merely a device to. defeat the garnishing  procedure, the court would  order you to pay the amount  in question. In the final analysis it is proof of what occurred that is presented in court  who the judge believes and  who he finds is-, lying,etc. If  you just do what the garnishing order says you can't go  wrong.

Phone 886-2522 Old bench casts spell  BY ERIC THOMSON  "And   Mountains,   that   like  giants     sttand,     To    : sentinel  enchanted  land".  "A fortnight or so ago, when  I was up the West side of  Howe Sound on a bit of a vacation, I dropped along the  shore to see an old friend and  found him with a mallet and  a couple of chisels carving the  above verse on a Douglas fir  plank he had rescued, from the  sea, and. set up to form a seat.  The lines are from Scott's  "Lady of the Lake" and describe a landscape half- a world  away. But they are-entirely  appropriate to their new setting. My friend's front window  looks out on one of the fairest prospects in this province  of wonderful vistas."  That paragraph appeared  years ��tgo in the late D. A. Mc  Gregor's "From an Angle in  the Square" in the Vancouver  Province, of which he was  then editor. This is the story  of how that bench came there,  and what happened to it.  Mr. McGregor and I built  adjacent summer homes on  the Hopkins Landing waterfront about 1930. In those days  there were only wood, burning  stoves and heaters, and I used  to cut about foiir fcords of  wood a year, on the beach  with a ' long hand-saw. At  that time George Graham had  his summer home on his $90  Twin Islands across the water  from Hopkins Landing, and  had a carpenter friend, who  hibernated there.  There   were   wharf   repairs  during      the      winter,      and  George's  friend  salvaged discarded planks from these, set  them up on blocks around the  island,     and    painted    them  cream.   I salvaged  a  ten-foot  plank, new from the saw-mill,'  on our beach, and, taking the  hint from Twin Island, set it  up on 'blocks on the pathway  just above the beach,; painted  it green, and went one better  than  the  carpenter.  I  carved  the    above    couplet    on    the  bench, using an unusual script _  '^copied &(__h'Vw_iatv3V^%s^'"ii_''"'  the dedication of the Book of  the Afrierican War Dead, which  the United States presented to  ': St. Paul's Cathedral in London.  Our people thought my handiwork was in Gaelic. It turned out that with the help of  Mother Nature I had builded .  .better than I knew. A dense  cedar grew to the North for  shelter,  a dogwood grew behind the (bench for beauty, a  rowan grew at the foot of the  path nearby to keep the witches away. The boys next door,  now distinguished bankers and  foresters,   used  to  buzz  their  apple cores down from their  verandah high up in the bank,"  and.   now   there   are   several  apple trees where cores landed back of the bench.  In 1967 I planted seedlings  from those _ Ontario maples -.  which some long-ago school  trustees planted on the  old Elphinstone Road, Roberts  Creek, school ground, and  they have grown into handsome trees, where the vandals  didn't cut them down. And, to  hide the beer bottles Nature  has. grown a dense line of salal  along the back of the bench.  This bench was just the  right distance along the path  from the store for a rest, but  its original purpose was for  a place for me to sit and cool  off when I -was cutting sections  off fir logs on the beach'. Quite,  often, when I was taking a  breather, some legal suppliant  from up Howe Sound - war  veteran, logger or pre-emptor,  would land there to air his  troubles, and it was a wonderful place to practice law by  ear.  ..It was, on occasion, where  some domestic grievance was  unloaded, and in the mood of  playing hookey from Vancouver, I listened to tales grave  and gay, and made salty suggestions that would have left  Dear Abbie paralysed. I have  to admit that this open-air  clinic .worked, for I have no  recollection of anyone coining  back for more.  Albout that time the Salvation Army started its summer  holiday for working mothers  at its hearty Camp Smjrise,  and these toil-worn Hastings  East types would make their  way in threes and fours to the  bench, which was about as far  as they had. the energy to walk,  and rest there, thinking they  were in Paradise.  Their Sally-Ann successors  of the present day, golden-  aged, blue-rinsed and' well-girdled, still "make prominade"  in season along the beach, and  sit on the bench, but they, having greater beam, can't sit so  many at a time. Then there  were the new Canadians, most  ly of Sandinavian origin, who  discovered that they could  take their car to Horseshoe  Bay, have a Ferry-ride to  Langdale, and a picnic lunch  on Hopkins Beach, at this  bench, thus avoiding the crowd  ed. 'beaches from Vancouver  to the Boundary.  This freedom, and they show  their appreciation by their  quiet (behaviour, and by leaving the place tidy. This spot  is a -wonderful place to play  Coast News, Dec. 20, 1972.  the bagpipes, and when . I  started them up, the little  children along the beach came  on the run to sit on the bench,  while I played them over the  hills and far away.  This came to an early end  this last summer. Young vandals upset the bench!, and  when I replaced it, the next  hight they upset it again, broke  it in half long-ways, and were  sick over the remains. So was  I, metaphorically, and threw  the   remains   over   the   bank.

S��RYIM6 THE SUNSHINE COAST  What's it like for an eager  nine-year old to fly all the  way from Vancouver to England, especially, (even as Dick  Whittington's cat) to see the  Queen? June Mandlkau, along  with her mother did just that,  not only to England but on to  Scotland as well.  Jamie, June's brother, a successful author of four books,  with three more on the way,  was at ��� the airport to meet  them and wisked them off to  a London railroad station, Edinburgh  and  Glasgow  bound.  June was full of her trip, including the thrilling plane ride  right over the top of the world.  It  was   a  thrill  for  Kathie  too, who had not been back to  the old country in 15 years, to  see her two sisters, her father  and  grandfather. She noticed.,  many   changes  in   Edinburgh,  along the  Royal Mile,  blocks  of   historic   old   biddings   had];  given pace to the usual uninteresting    standardized 'i shop-'  ping malls and tourist hotels.  June and her mother Were;  dazzled    ���by    the    fascinating  shops along the still beautiful,  unchanged     Princess     Street.;  They    even    took    a    swing^  around Queen's Park to mar-;  vel at the floral clock and in  Princess   Park   and    actually -  over-flowing cheer  for you and yours.

Back once more to smokey,  smbggy old London and to  Jamie who was waiting to  show his little sister and mother the sights and sounds of  London-town. '  What do you say to a nine  year old who had flown well  over 1,000 miles to. see the  Queen, only to find _she was  not at home, away visiting in  Yugoslavia or some such place?  June's eyes fairly bugged  out at the sight of the crown  jewels at the Tower. Next,  Westminister Abbey and old St  Pauls, -where she was most  overcome by the grandeur of  these historic places. With  Jamie, they crossed Tower  Bridge then fed the pigeons  in Trafalgar Square and gaze  up at the statue of Nelson, a  visit to Covent Gardens with  their stalls of produce and the  flower sellers; down to the  teeming Easend dock; ��� along  the Thames embankment to  to gaze in wonderment at Big  Ben and the Houses of Parliament, past Captain Scott's  ship 'Discovery' and. Cleopatra's Needle.  June also took every opportunity to ride on the fabulous  underground and on the top  deck of the (bright red double-  decker buses.  The last night was Kathie's  to venture out on the town  under  the  experienced escort  of Jamie and his English girl  friend.  On their return flight Kathie  was delighted' to note that at  least 70|% of their fellow passengers were bright young  people all out to see the world.  "It was so interesting to listen to their conversation as  they compared travel notes  from one end of the world to  another."  "It's so wonderful for the  young people today to have  the means and freedom to  travel at will", said Kathie,  "so unlike our younger days."  June re-voiced her mother's  wistful thoughts by declaring  she would be going back overseas one of these days real  soon, only next time she'd  make sure of seeing the  Queen". There is no better  way than the good old-  fashioned way of extending  our sincere good wishes at this  joyous holiday than to say: Hope you  and yours have a very Merry Christmas Day!

Number one project was  the arrival of son Kim Kade  on Oct. 3 weighing 7 lbs. 4oz.  This meant the completion of  the snug cabin so Kim and his.  mother would have a cozy  home.  The Burnetts also managed  two trips to their favorite resort, Surf Sands Motel on  Oregon's Canon Beach.  Meantime, at the Burnett's  well cultivated acreage close  to the Hydro line, an unbroken  wall of stone work now borders the pool with its sparkling spring fed waterfall. Cement footings have been poured for the garden house. The  year produced much planting  of perennials, trees and  shrubs including a good sized  grove of newly planted fir,  pine, cherry, maple, walnut,  mountain ash, dogwood and  bamboo plus further work in  finishing up interior detail  and rigging of Ernie's 44 foot  schooner i_. well advanced  with the launching date next  spring.  Ernie has also managed to  turn out a respectable number of his much-sought-after  wood carvings, including, along  with many smaller pieces, an  heroic 11-foot Nordic-featured  statue and two special assignments of has relief carvings  for the Peninsula hotel beverage room and cocktail lounge  Bella is now back at her place  at the work bench and fast  becoming an expert in carving.  A record number of guests  were received, by the Burnetts  including tourists from the U.S.  England and across Canada.

The 85 mile trip takes somewhere in the neighbourhood  of 20 hours depending on tides  wind, the number of barges  and the size of the tug. And,  other .than the run through the  rapids, its normally no more  eventful than towing anywhere else on B.C.'s coast.  The     Skookumchuk,     how  ever, is something else. It is  practically impossible to predict and at times there is almost no interval between  large flood and ebb tides. The  tugboat skipper, therefore,  must be exact on his estimate  of slack water times./.   ','  It is not the tug itself that  runs into problems so .much as  the barge, or barges, which  are more susceptible to current movement in the rapids.  It is no place for amateurs.  When the tide is running in  the Chuck the current can attain speeds up to 12 knots.

A meat thermometer reading is still the  most accurate indication of  doneness. Insert the thermometer in the centre of the stuffing and roast the bird until  the temperature reaches 165  degrees.

The home economists, Agriculture Canada, Ottawa would  like to tell consumers of something new and improved now  available after extensive research. - more accurate roasting times for stuffed turkeys.  An experiment recently com  pleted at Food Advisory Ser-  . vices was designed to determine roasting times for two  types of stuffed, whole turkeys  the regular .turkeys and the  ones injected with fat. The  latter are commonly sold under such names as deep-basted  or self-basted turkeys.  Every day over a period of  several weeks, two types of  injected turkeys were cooked  at the same time as a regular  turkey of the same weight.  Turkeys weighing approximately 8, 12, 16, 20 or 24 pounds  were selected for testing.  On the days of the tests,  the turkeys were removed  from a refrigerator at 40 deg.  washed and stuffed with a seasoned .bread stuffing. Each  stuffed turkey was trussed,  placed breast side up on a  rack in a shallow pan, brushed  with oil and covered loosely  with heavy aluminum foil. To  accurately measure the internal temerature during cooking,   thermocouples   were   in  serted in the thighs, breast  and stuffing of the turkeys.  These thermocouples were  used instead of thermometers  so that they could be attached  to an electronic recorder, a  device that automatically plots  temperature  changes.  All turkeys were roasted at  325 degrees in household electric ovens until the temperature of the thigh reached 185  degrees. (When cooking a turkey at home, it is better to  test for doneness in the stuffing because it is difficult to  insert a thermometer in the  thigh of the turkey. Insert the  thermometer in the center of  the stuffing and roast thebird  until the temperature reaches  165  degrees).  During the study, 200 persons from the staff of Agriculture Canada tasted samples of  meat from the thigh and breast  of each turkey. Samples of all  turkeys cooked to 185 degrees ,  were considered to be tender  and juicy.  Analysis of the. cooking data  revealed that regular and injected turkeys of the same  weight required similar cooking times. From the data accumulated on 60 turkeys, a  timetable was drawn for roast  ing times of stuffed turkeys  cooked  at  325  degrees  So   when   you   are   roasting*  your   turkey   this   Christmas,  follow this timetable and be  assured that your bird will be  Coast News, Dec. 20,1972.  golden and juicy. Remember  that injected, turkeys take ap  proximately the same time to  cook as regular turkeys.  Frozen birds should be kept  frozen until a day or two before preparation time, depending on the' weight and the  thawing time. A turkey small  enough to go into the refrigerator will require from four  to five 'hours per pound to  thaw. A large turkey will thaw  more quickly if it is submerged in its water-tight bag in cold  water, allowing about one hour  per pound. ^When the bird is  thawed, it should be treated  as fresh and refrigerated promptly.  Cooked turkey meat may be  stored in a covered container,  a plastic bag or aluminum foil  in the refrigerator for three  to four days. Freezing extends  the storage time; plain turkey  slices or pieces will keep one  month in the freezer, three  months if covered with broth  or sauce. -  VILLAGE OF GIBSONS  5 percent interest credit  1973 Current Tax Payments  Made between January 1st and May 15th  Interest, at the rate of 5% per annum, will be credited  to any prepayment deposit on current (1973) taxes made  between January 1st and May 15th, 1973.

Strike up  a conversation on the wharf  or over a cup of coffee, and,  if birds are even casually mentioned people will immediately begin to relate their experiences Math them.  Genuine interest like this,  as opposed to the charitable  abstractness of the scientific  world is the key to tomorrow.  At this time of year most of  the summer birds have f ollow-  ed the sun southwards, although a few stragglers are  still around.  Last week, at the Mossley's  oh 'Pell Farm, a small race of  Canada Goose landed among  the tame larger race. It seems  to have been adopted, although  it is still flighty.  The barnyard Geese dropped  down from their usual aloofness to become body guards  for the Pekin Ducks in their  moment of peril.  Around dusk a few days ago  a Great Horned Owl, which  had been watching them for a  couple of hours, suddenly  swooped down and tried to  seize one only a few feet from  the front door. The ducks escaped to the safety of the geese  and were allowed td stay until the danger was past.  Although we don't have the  abundance of summer, we still  have a good variety of permanent residents. Making a fast/  tally, I can remember at least  40 different birds I have sighted in the past few weeks, without making any special effort  to search them out.  This is a igood. time to start  a bird feeder, you will be re- %.  warded with an avian drama  .until   the   warni   weather re-  ��� turns.

From extremely close up I can  daily watch the Sparrows, Finches, Towhees and Juncos going through their routine,  while below me the Mergan-.  sers, Loons and. other shore  birds play their part. Its almost  enough to turn me into an arm  chair bird watcher.  Walking along the beach towards Gower Point, you are  likely to see a few wild Mallards, which were unfprtunate-  ly foiled in their attempt to  raise a family beneath the marina this summer. A little farther out a pair of Goldeneyes  may be feeding, diving down  and searching the bottom for  dinner. If a school of fish are  in the bay, Loons and Grebes  will be fishing, surrounded by  a scattered J:lock of .Gulls wat  ching for a chance to grab a  free meal.  In the high trees on the  point up to_ a hundred crows  may be seen wheeling around  telling everyone how they  want things run.  If you feel energetic, you  can walk up to Shoal Lookout  and watch the Buff leheads  far below swim a few feet under water before disappearing  into the depths.  Anyone going into the forest  will find the going, and spotting much easier now that the  summer foliage has disappeared.  The young from this spring  are facing their first winter,  for some it will be the last,  making way for the healthier  ones to carry on the cycle next  year and ensuring them a place  here in the future.  Dilemma facing  speed skating  Speed skating in British Columbia is faced with a unique  dilema. It is gaining clubs but  losing skaters. ,  "The problem, really, is lack  of publicity," says Millie Bod-  nar of Dawson Creek, speed  skating event chairman for  the British Columbia Festival  of Winter Sports.  "The sport just doesn't seem  to want to publicize itself,"  says Mrs. Bodnar. "Without  publicity there just isn't any  way of creating interest in the  . sport. As a result, we are losing a great number of skaters  and new ones aren't replacing  them.  "Thank goodness, though,  for events such as the Festival  of Winter Sports. Through it,  our sport is given not only  provincial but national attention."  One of the major highlight  events of the second British  Columbia Festival of Winter  Sports, Jan. 18 - Feb. 5, is the  B.C. Outdoor Open speed skating championships, to be staged at Dawson Creek Speed  Skating Oval, February 3-4.
