R. Hanna informed the school board  at its initial 1974 board meeting. , r  He added that in these respects 1973 will be long remembered in this School'district.  In 1974 problems and decisions of equal magnitude will  have to be made including the  appointment of the replacement for Trustee William Nimmo -who resigned, with possibly, he queried, a second woman to grace the board?  Other problems are the one  school vs. the two school problem, special education, the music program, outdoor and science education an effective in-  service training program and  the setting up of priorities on a  full ^school year basis.  He pointed out that powers,  duties and responsibilities of  board officials are all laid  down in the Public Schools Act  the roadway. Ray Boothroyd,  manager, estimates the damage at $250.  At Chess Enterprizes not  far from" the theatre, a group  hurled rocks and chunks of  paving material at the cars  parked on his lot, damaging  the roof of one and denting  the bodies of several others.  Frank Havies of Chess Enter-,  prises reports this to be the  second occurence within a  month. *  On a previous occasion, the  roof of a convertible was slashed beyond repair and windows  removed from a camper. This  attack, alone, cost more than  $1',000. In the village area, at  least   three   over-head   lights,  were ~ smashed  together  with  pther damage to property  ,   Mr.   Boothroyd  says  he. is  required to pay five .sets of  taxes apart from Capital outlay and maintenance on theatre   property,   for   which   he  claims he receives"; little protection, from, the tinder-manned  police detail- or from the village authority.,. Frank Havies  says he finds himself in the  same .position.  Both -men. determined to  fight such' depredations, have  posted a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction oij the  person or persons responsible  for the damage to the premises  of the Twilight Theatre.  In order to put down this  hooliganism and destruction of  private and business property,  Roy &nd Frank urge other  merchants, together with Gibsons council and other concerned parties to contribute *  further money to this anti-  crime fund.  ^ess-Roberto de, Creeko. of Biri-  %gb Hair and is forcing the-mar-  ;r^e, of-Alice to Roberto.

Gor-  Curlers closer  to their project  Gibsons Winter Club, incorporated under the Societies Act  - Nov. 22, 1973 is becoming very  active.  -���    Recently, the village set a-  side a 5 acre parcel of land  , across     from    the    Catholic  Church  for  recreational  pur-  , poses, a portion of which is to  be leased to the Winter Club  for the Curling Rink.  * This   decision   has   enabled  the' club to resubmit its application   for   the   Provincial  Recreation   grant.   The   first  application for this grant last  spring could not be approved  until a definate piece of land  was decided upon by the Village. The next announcement  for grants occurs the first of  April.  The finance committee of  the club is also corresponding  with Ottawa in the hope that  some federal money may also  be available.  If the Winter Clubs application for the government  grant is successful and arrange  ments with the village are  complete, land clearing will  take place about April 1. Additional information and share  certificates are available from  Dick Blakeman, Ron Lacey,  Ray Chamberlin, Garry McDevitt, Dave Richardson or  any director.  .The First Annual Gibsons  Lions 400 Club draw made Fri-  day of last week for the weekly $100 prize was won with a  split' ticket held by Mrs. N.  Catrell and Mrs. Dorothy  Campbell of North Vancouver.  The second annual Gibsons  Lions club ticket sale will not  start until June. In the meantime on the 1973 project there  will be a draw every Friday.  The project back of this  weekly draw will provide the  school district with a driver-  training car and training by an  instructor.  Beautiful B.C. delay explained  A statement has been issued  by the publisher of the Beautiful B.C. magazine as the result of complaints about nondelivery of the magazine' on  time. Here is their statement:  During the past year we  have been converting our mailing system from semi-manual  type to a computer program.  Unfortunately we have run  into more difficulties than expected and the result has been  a delay in the mailing of many  Beautiful British Columbia  magazine subscriptions.  We sincerely appreciate the  fact that many customers ordered the magazine early in  good faith but we did not anticipate the major problems  which arise when minor incorrect input to the computer  disrupts the smooth flow of  subscriptions. We have put a  special crew to work to earnrft  ly resolve the problems which  resulted in delays in the processing of subscriptions received in the fall of 1973 and  it is anticipated that most-of  these   trouble   areas   will  be  rectified in the very immediate future. I would also like~  to mention that, even with  these delays, we have processed and mailed approximately  180,000 subscriptions.  It is realized with regret  that many people have been  disappointed due to our dif-Y.  ficulties in processing their  orders oh time; however, I do-  wish to assure you that, although we are not fully pleased with our results, it is not  contemplated that similar delays will arise in 1974 and we  trust that you will have confidence in our circulation procedures.  We would also like to express our sincere apologies to  your many customers  EMERGENCY BRANCH  Provincial Secretary Hon.

An unpalatable inheritance  Premier Barrett could be right in blaming the former Social Credit government for the present land assess-  A  ment situation. His words are: "This is a Social Credit  mess that we have inherited."  "To support Mr. Barrett's contention a Coast News  editorial printed in the March 3, 1971 issue is reproduced  in its entirety:  ;.    V '������ ,7     '  "In its December News Letter the Union of British  Columbia Municipalities placed the strongest possible  emphasis on the injurious effect it would have on mu-  nici^alitiesi if the government goes ahead with its plan  to limit to ten percent per year, the rate assessed values  on individual properties'can be increased for school purposes.  "This is now a bill before the legislature, Bill No. 22,  an Act to Amend the Assessment Equalization Act, which  if passed will put a ten percent limit on assessment increases.  "The original intent of the Equalization Act, the Municipal Union letter states, was to provide an equitable  basis on which all classifications of property throughout  the province are taxed for school costs. This -ideal has  never been reached, although progress was slowly made  until 1966 when a five percent artificial limit was imposed. After strong; urging by UBCM which brought the inequities of artificial^limitations to the government's at-  teiition,,the limit was lifted from individual properties in  1968 and placed on area total assessed values.  '���"-.: I  ���/-���*�����-././':���������������     :���������:'��������������� ���''���.���'���. YY'\' ', v  "'This meant that the five percent was added to the  grand total of assessments .instead of x>n individual properties, which resulted last year in a reduction in some  and in others an increase.  "Now we have the B.C. Branch of the Canadian Bar  /Association offering its. opposition by presenting to the  premier and attorney-general a resolution which maintains passage of the'bill will cause assessments to lose  any relationship to the value of "real property and that  inequalities which will be created are repugnant to the  general intention of the Assessment Equalization Act.  "The UBCM has maintained that this type of artificial limitation has its greatest detrimental effect and  produces most glaring inequalities where land has been  rezoned to higher use, where farmlands have been subdivided, where shifts in business activity result in higher  market values and where it is desirable to achieve equity  between new and older construction. As a mill rate cannot be varied resulting in what obviously are unequal  assessments it means a majority of owners are forced by  statutory limitation to subsidize land speculators.  "The result as outlined above would mean that assessments will have little to do with the valuation of property and instead become a political gimmick which can  be used at will and where the most advantageous political  service can be done. '    ,  "At various times during the last few months there  have been outcries pf forcing homeowners tp subsidize  land speculators. Last year's president of the UBCM,  Mayor Anderson, termed the proposed 10 percent limitation meaningless to almost everyone except land speculators unless it is accompanied by a limit on tax rates.  "An example would be in the case of property purchased and then rezoned to produce higher revenue. The  speculator would be protected by a ten percent ceiling  on assessment rates but the property would have been  sold for a far greater price than the assessment will show.  ^'There are examples on the Sunshine Coast where a  property has been sold for a high price while under the  assessment' ceiling thus placing surrounding properties  in a very inequitable taxation situation. Municipal and  even assessment officials are not happy with the five or  ten percent ceiling or any ceiling for that matter. They  prefer taking the natural course to let values set the pace.  However the bill, is before .the house and what will happen to it remains to be seen. Municipal officials and members o_Tthe Bar Assocation are united in their approach  to this bill. The Bennett government rarely bends to  pressures."  A club is being organized by  men of Gibsons United Church  It will be an ATOS club which  will meet regularly or as required. ��� ,  'The organization started  working on the club idea a  couple of months ago arid' will  hold its first meeting Monday,  Jan. 28 in the United Church  hall at a supper meeting. Men  interested in the development  of service to their community  and church are invited to meet  with other men to work out a  program.   ,  AOTS is a men's service  club within the United Church  and this year the club is celebrating its 50th year.  Reporting on the (beginnings  of ATOS Alec Gilmour of Selma Park says it started in  1923 at what is now Ryerson  church in Vancouver wihen  Dr. H. Riggs, a prominent Vancouver surgeon, an active layman at. Kerrisdale Methodist  church, now Ryerson church,  sought a means of harnessing  the talents of men. The women  were already active in the  Women's Association and Missionary Society. He felt men  should also have, an organization for fellowship and  Christian service.  As Dr. Riggs was a member  ���of the Kiwanis, /he felt the  organizaion could be pattern- ,  ed' after the Kiwanis. In casting about for a name he recalled the saying of Jesus 'I  ani amongst you as one that.  serves,'  5 to 25  yrs. ago  .

SHARE YOUR  GOOD HEALTH  BE A BLOOD DONOR  A meeting wasf called. A  good turnout of men decided  to form a club and accepted!  Dr. Riggs AOTS (As One  That Serves) as the" name of  ���the organization. Now AOTS  , clubs are part of the Methodist  and Prebyterian churches.  For many years said Mr.  Gilmour the club was not officially connected with the  church but through the efforts  and financial backing of men  in the clubs, particularly men  like Jack Robinson, Charlie  Atkinson who later became  national -president, Roy Johnson and others, a national  secretary was appointed arid-  given the task of extending  the movement. D.R. Poole was,  appointed secretary. He left  a good job to do this work at"  a lower salary.'  He inspired his contacts and  during his travels to various  churches across Canada helped  in the formation of clubs and  their number increased .greatly  resulting in the fcfmation of  district councils. These cov-  erd areas like Vancouver, New  Westminster and Vancouver Island and rural areas.  Some district clubs laid  down programs of joint service ventures and for many  years one, Vancouver club on  Saturday night's during winter months put on a' concert  or picture show at First United  Church for drifters and! pensioners who desired to attend.  Area clubs took turns acting as guides and provided  transportation for the Discus  club, a blind men's service  club. Every Thursday night  a club would visit the old men  in the Vancouver General Hospital annex. Other projects  were included.  Each club carried out pro-  iects withiri their church and \  held monthly meetings to hear  speakers, choirs and other entertainment. , For. some years  ATOS assisted the Boys Parliament and bne of the high  lights was an ATOS district  council banquet for members  of this parliament. Various  clubs also sponsored a boy as  a Boys Parliament member.  Through the council on Laymen's Sunday, the second Sun-  . day in October, lay. .services  were held in- many churches  with ATOS mernbers condlict-  ing the 'service. Services were  also held* at other churches  and United^ Church institutions  .There are now 300 clubs in  the movehient in nearly every  province in Canada with sev  eral . affiliated clubs in Bermuda. There are also 14 clubs,  within   the   Trinidad   Presbyterian   church,   Mr.   Gilmour  reported. -   .  Local club members strive  to operate on a service basis  rather than fund, raising on  a big scale. They have'painted  inside and' outside the home  of an aged widow,''picked up  crippled and elderly people  and organized ear pools to  convey people to church.  One club has regular study  sessions to which men and  women attend along with their  neighbors. Some clubs undertake work sessions around the  church and grounds.  A THANK YOU!

Mrs. Charman was,born in  the  interior,   and  married; in  1948.  Only by hard work ahd long  . hours of toil was George able  to make even a bare subsis7  tence     from     the     reluctant  ground. Charman prided himself particularly in raising of  * squash,    gourds,    carrots , and  corn., At. one time >he kept a  herd of goats and supplied the  area with milk. He_ was also  very much in demand in the  pruning and advising on cultivation of fruit trees.  The Charmans leave this  area with great reluctance and  already *miss their host of  friends.

George observed it was  quite a wrench to break their  ties with the place in which  they had so many happy years,  and, where they had- seen the  area grow from an isolated few  to a thriving, bustling village  with an ever-increasing population and 7 from dirt trails to  black topped roads and: winding highWays. . ��� - 7  As staunch members of  Gibsons Pentecostal Church,  the Charmans were recipients  ,of a rousing going-away party  by 48 members of the congregation    and   friends    at . the  church. _\ presentation of an  electric toaster and kettle was  made.  Pastor Gerry Foster pointed  out that the 'Charmans had  been faithful and helpful members, of the congregation and  that George had been secretary  of the Sunday School and. substitute teacher, aS member of  the church board and the Men's  Breakfast  club.  George and Marion might  well be described as steadfast,  faithful and willing Christians,  always ready to lend a helping  hand; unique qualities in ��� this  worldly age of spiritual apathy and religious indifference.  Pastor Gerry Foster said. ..

Letters to Editor  Editor: I'm a mother with a  school age child and I've just  been treated with the most  obscene language by a neighbor, a local school teacher.  He used filthy language to  myself and an old age pensioner over the blockage of a ditch  in the South Fletcher lane,  which the municipality had already cleared out once, on his  account, as the rain caused  the ditch to flood the pensioner's property.  If this is the. example of the  English language which children learn in school, I would  suggest it's about time the calibre of our teachers was looked  into.  ���-Mrs. L.

Horoscope for the next week  -     By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21 - April 20  'Leadership-   is   strongly  high  lighted   in   your   solar   chart  right now. You can do much to  further your career in practically    any    business    venture.  Listen to others.  TAURUS - April 21 - May 21  Business conditions should be  extremely    good.    You    have  .many    astrological   conditions  going for you now. Be fair and  just in all dealings with others  and you'll see much gain.  GEMINI - May 22 - June 21  A lot  depends,  here in your  horoscope,   on   just   how  you  made out over the past couple  of weeks. If things were satisfactory!   you  can   look  forward   to   a   good   period.   Ef  things were a little rough, you  should revise your attitude.  CANCER - June 22 - July 22  The   stars   are   beginning   to  shine   again   in   your   favour.  There's  a   lot  of  long  range  benefit   coming   your   way   if  you are careful' and. considerate   in    your    dealings    with  others.  LEO - July )23- - August 23  A very definite'"-move"of some  kind is indicated here in your  horoscope. This may entail a  .move from one place to another, or it may only indicate  a move in your way.of thinking. In any event, it's for the  better.  VIRGO - August 24 - Sept. 22  'Take it easy' is a good slogan  for all Virgo persons to follow  at this time. Some minor irritations may be getting you  upset. Calm down, and accept  things as they are.  LIBRA - Sept. 23 - October 23  Business matters, and business matters alone, should  govern your actions at the  present time. ^Don't let social  activities get you involved in  some 'impossible situatiop.'  SCORPIO - Oct. 24 - Nov. 22  Things look extremely good for  Scorpio right now, but there's  a slight astrological warning  not to become involved in any  'shady dealings.' Stay above-  board' and profit!  SAGITTARIUS Nov 23. Dec 21  There's a 'whole- new world'  opening up for Sagittarius now  Much will depend upon how  you have accepted or rejected  things as they have been over  the past three years. Be wise!  CAPRICORN r Dec.22 - Jan.20  You jnay be tempted to let  business matters go by the  board this week. This is fine,  as long as you realize that this  means 'take a holiday.' If you  don't, things could get rather  'mixed up!'  AQUARIUS - Jan. 12 - Feb. 18  A. change in your whole life  "is coming up shortly. This can  bring much benefit if you  channel your thoughts and  actions constructively. Don't  make the mistakes you have  made in the past!.  PISCES - Feb. 1? -'March 20  The chart for Pisces resembles  that of Aquarius this week.  You should read ttiis, and  govern yourself accordingly.  Do not let social commitments  involve you in important business matters.  Copyright 1974 by Trent Varro  All rights reserved.

Informal Chats Tues., 886-2078  Letters to Editor  Editor: Are your readers satisfied wdith the CBC?  In mid-February the Canadian Radio and Television Com-  missioh is holding public hearings in Ottawa to review the  CBG's licences tb -continue  broadcasting for another five  years. The undersigned believe  the public should express an  Opinion about what it wants to  see and hear on our publically-  financed television and radio  networks.  . The CBC is clearly modelling  itself on American practices,  programming whatever adver- '  tisers will buy. It's selling our  airtime on our network to companies so that they in turn can  sell their wares to us. Do we  need a publically-financed network to subsidize sales of  toothpaste?  We believe ii> public broad-.  casting, and that it is essential,  it   be   supported   to   provide <  viewers and listeners with what-���  the private networks and private stations both here and in  the U.S. do not ��� programs by  and   for Canadians reflecting'  our standards of behaviour and  morality in order to, foster andj_:  , encourage our very survival as \  an independent  country. *  If  we're  paying for  public,  broadcasting, and we are, let's  demand   public   broadcasting.  Let's get rid of commercials on  CBC.  We plan to attend the CRTC  hearing iri February to present  a brief. We would therefore  .like to hear from readers on  the subject of the CBC. Please  /write us a letter or a postcard  todaiy^ to TPoSt Office Box 58070, '  Postal Station L, Vancouver,  B.C.

The food  Sausage was probably one of  the world's first convenience  foods and by no meaiis a 20th  century innovation. Born of  necessity centuries ago as a  means of preserving meats,  sausage was" chopped or  ground meat, seasoned, stuffed  into a suitable package or casing   and   cooked,   smoked   or,  Sausages are usually classified according to their method  of processing. The main types  are fresh, cooked, smoked -  both cooked and uncooked, dry  or semi-dry, and cooked meat  specialties.  Fresh sausage is made from  selected cuts of fresh meat and  must be cooked thoroughly before serving. The most common variety is fresh pork but  pork and beef or all beef are  also available.  Cooked sausage is ready-to-  eat and' includes sucli products  as blood sausage and liver-  wurst. It may or may not be  smoked after cooking. Smoking imparts a different color  and flavor. Uncooked, smoked  sausage is smoked only for a  short time and it must be  cooked before serving. A familiar example is, country-style  pork sausage.  Cooked, smoked sausage,  which has been smoked then  cooked, is ready-to-serve as  purchased. Examples of this  type are weiners and bologna.  Dry or semi-d!ry sausage is  made from selected meat with  a high salt and spice content.  Some of the common ones' are  salami, summer sausage, and  pepperoni.  Cooked meat specialties, or  more commonly cold cuts, are  prepared meat products Which  are cooked or baked and ready  to serve. Head cheese, tongue  loaf and macaroni and cheese  loaf are a few of the varieties  Recently, amendments were  made to .the Food and Drug  regulations. which permit the  addition of such ingredients*  as pickles, olives, cheese and  fruit to sausage and sausage  meat as well as other meat  products. According to these  amendments any of the ingredients .added must be in  separate identifiable pieces in  a sufficent enough quantity  that they can be differentiated,  from the sausage or sausage  meat. Also the label of sau  sage products must carry a  complete list of ingredients in  descending order of proportion or percentage, composition.  Sausage or sausage products  may contain lip to* 4 percent  binder or filler and up to 60  percent moisture if a filler  is used. If no filler is used the  moisture content may not exceed 75 percent. In comparison,  uncooked, lean, round of* beef  contains about 66 percent  moisture. Regulations have  been, proposed to set a minimum quantity and quality for  protein.  /^2  VijUCIO  VOLVO  CARS  & STATION WAGONS  International Tracks &  'Recreational Vehicles.  PHONE: 278-6291  E.

Elphinstone as its ski slope  with access through Jackson  Bros, logging road.  Accessibility to this area is  the club's main problem. Usually. 4-wheel drive vehicles  are used to get to the Tucker  ,Sno-cat higher up..This Sno-  cat has carried as many as 32  people to the caibdn in one  rum, slow but a fun trip.  The club has a small A-  frame cabin at the 3,600 foot  level. There able-bodied members have constructed a workable 600 foot rope tow, which  due to government regulations  is not operating*at present.  The club cabin is located on  a mile long plateau with roll  ing hills perfect for cross-country as well as \ alpine  skiing. There are good areas  for learners or those interested in hiking, toboganning or  just enjoying fresh air and  sunshine. In heavy snow periods the run from the' top  down on the logging road to  the highway is seven miles.  It is a challenging ski area  with terrain for every level  of skiing. The view of the  straits and Vancouver Island  withYRoberts Creek area at  the foot of the mountain is  spectacular. The sunset from  the mountain has to be seen  to be appreciated.

Then why not take a  few moments to drop in and talk about Registered Retirment Savings Plans.  Here's how they work. Underthe present income tax regulations you are entitled to set  aside a tax-deferrable amount for your retirement years. This amount is 20% of your  earned income up to a maximum of $2,500 for people who already participate in a  company pension plan and up to $4,000 for self- '  employed people.  These tax deferrals, together with any  income and capital gains they earn, don't  become taxable until you withdraw them;  and if you wait until you retire, chances are  your tax rate will be lower than it is now.  s  . So you defer income tax today and you build  ,      a nest egg for tomorrow.  We can help you chart your R.R.S.P.  program. Don't let this opportunity slip by.  Your plan mustbe registered before .the end  of February to qualify for your 1973 tax  deferral. Drop in and see us soon.  Community Corner  Jan. 11 ��� Gibsons UCW Thrift  Shop. 1 to 3 each Friday.

Hensch,  manager of this I|.C. Hydro's  power district. 'A faucet that  leaks steadily, even though  only slightly, can have a significant effect on the amount  of electricity or other fuel  used to heat water,' the pointed  out. Frequently, all that as  needed is a new washer, at a  cost of only, a few cents. But  it can save you dollars worth  of energy in the long run.'  Furnace filters should be  checked! every two or three  months, and replaced at least  every six months. This is particularly important in a new  house. It is also important to  realize that if a dirty filter  is removed and not replaced,  there is real danger that dust  may penetrate the fan motor,  and cause serious damage. Furnace filters are inexpensive,  but a hew motor is costly.  Similarly, it doesn't make  sense to spend money for insulation to reduce heat loss  from a house, andi then leave  a fireplace damper open so  that the chimney is drawing  the heat outdoors.  Turning the thermostat down  to about 60 or 62! degrees during sleeping hours can reduce  the-annual heating (bill an a-  verage of about 10 percent. A  setting lower than 60 degrees  may reduce the benefit as the  furnace then has to run longer  in the morning to bring temperature up to normal. ��� _'  Some people try to save  money by closing heat vents  in the basement. This may  prove costly. A cold basement  usually means a cold floor upstairs. If the floor is cqlcL, occupants of the house tend to  turn up the heat, and this increases fuel consumption.     ,  Instant-on television sets use  considerably more electricity  than slower warm-up models.  Colour television uses more  power than black and white.  Some customers are surprised to find that service bills  are riot significantly reduced  while they are away on vacation. Many forget that miost  furnace thermostats don't turn  completely off, with the result that some fuel continues  to he used. Also, freezers, re-  is that heat cannot be turned  To repair wharf  The approach to the wharf  at West Bay wharf, Gambier  Island, will be repaired under  a $53,746 contract awarded to  Greenlees Piledriving Co.

Also, if curtains and  drapes are left closed, the benefit of solar heating during the  daytime is lost.

Legal services  without a fee are provided by  the B.C. Law Society to which  ail lawyers belong. There are  two ways of, obtaining this,  through the legal aid; plan  and through the criminal legal  aid plan.  Each local bar association  will have different arrangements and should be applied  to, but the legal aid plan in  Vancouver is typical. In' Vancouver, the applicant^ appear  at the main court house at  8 p.m. each Wednesday evening. They are interviewed by  a committee of three junior  lawyers and are screened to  determine their eligibility.  They must swear an affidavit concerning their income  and assets. If these are small,  they will be directed to a law-'  yer who will handle their case  including a trial if necessary,  without a fee. They must, however, pay any expense such as  court recdrder _ fees, process .  server's fee and court registry  fees for issuing a summons,  from $10 to $20. In practice,  most applicants have simple  problems- that can be answered oh the spot by the members  of the committee.  A representative of the Salvation Army tours the Vancouver jail each morning and  applicants for criminal legal  aid may give him their names.  These _re passed on to the  chairman of criminal legal aid  committee of the Law Society  and they are screened for financial eligibility. Applicants  must also pass the five year  rule; that is, must not have  been convicted and imprisoned  during the previous five years.  If eligible, the applicant has  a lawyer assigned who will  handle his case without a fee.  * If' the charge is a serious one^  like, murder, the lawyer appointed is usually well experienced in such matters. The  five":, year rule does not apply  to serious cases, murder, manslaughter, rape, arson, treason  habitual criminal charges, or  dangerous. sexual offender  charges. The lawyer is paid a  small fee by the government.  Lawyers are not required 'by     a,  the profession's code of ethics     *  to serve under these schemes,  but   most   lawyers   regard   it  as a professional obligation.  There is also a lawyer referral plan. This exists to refer  clients who need a lawyer and  do not know one, to lawyers  who have agreed to serve on  the plan. The lawyer is allowed to charge $5 for the initial  interview and advice. After  that the parties are on their  own. Application is to be made .  to the local bar association.
