Leadership^ is  the key, he said, and where-  ever it comes from it has to  be earnest and enthusiastic to  gain the support, of the community residents.'  The      confereiice      showed  some consensus on promoting  from commumty life. Pennington concluded by saying leadership   in   community   affairs  is   not   just   controlling   the  purse strings.  Jack Stevens,, director and  founder of the first community           _ school in B.C. in North Van-  tions of school in a commun-    couver school district, stressed    further   investigation . of   the  ity sence?'

For instance, the quiet  , munity  must  start  with   the  atmosphere of small communi-   ideas   acceptable   to   its   own  tie? was under pressure from    residents.  The whole emphasis of the  community school concept, he  said, is to have the community  aiware of and responsible for  the educating of children and  to have the children aware  of their place in the life of tne  external forces.  He also pointed out that  generally in communities in  B.C. there is no master plan  of commumty services and  agencies often overlap in services   offered.   Recreation   is  el op ment of Commumty  schools, a survey of community needs and an inventory of  community resources.  Visiting other districts to  study developments in community schools, and an effort  to develop further cooperation  among public and private  agencies was considered to be  of immediate importance.  EXTENDED CARE PATIENTS of St.  Mary's Hospital were entertained by Se-  chtlt Legion Ladies Auxiliary in the Legion Hall last'Thursday night. Staf^ from  the hospital attended on their own time*  to look after the 17 patients.Volunteer  transportation was supplied by Sechelt  Taxi.  Special treat  at Twilight  Youngsters in the Gibson-  area are in for a special Christmas treat provided by Ray  and Pam Boothroyd, proprietors of the Twilight Theatre  and cast and crew of The  Beachcombers, who will, together host a free Chrisfomas  matinee at the Twilight Theatre from 2 to' 5 p.m. on Dec.  22 to which all local youngsters are invited.

Also on the bill will be the  Twilight Theatre "Corps de  Ballet" under the direction of  Jean Milward.  School insurance settled  Pupils donate      Elphinstone to be rebuilt  $800 to fund  Total  covering  insurance settlement  the Elphinstone  school fire loss is $1,454,956,  Secretary-treasurer J. R. Metzler informed the school board  at its meeting last week.    ���  That figure covers Ithe building contents, debris removal,  personal claims,.research and  extra expense, Mr, Metfefler.  explained. Trustee Peter Pres-  cesky ' earlier in the meeting  said the adjusters had placed  the depreciated value of the  burned building at approximately '$1,117,798 Mr. Metzler  later explained the difference  a rough $337,000 covers losses  other than the actual building.  The settlement was worked  out between the board, department of education and the  Underwriters Adjustment bureau.  The board by motion called  for  a  vote  of thanks to the  secretary-treasurer and staff  for the extra work and documentation in preparation of  claims.  A vote of thanks was moved  in recognition of Trustee William Nimmo /who did not seek  re-election. Chairman Mrs. A.  Labonte felt that the district  'was losing a good trustee.

The money was raised as the  result of a 17 mile walkathon  Nov. 18 from Trout Lake to  the school by 38 pupils and  two teachers. Pri:-Vipal of the  school of 130 pupils is Mr. A.  L. Thompson.  CAROLS PLANNED  The Low C group of Gibsons  United Church plans a carolling jaunt Thursday to allow  vanous points in1 Gibsons ; to  hear them. The group will  meet at the church hall first.  "The School Feasibility Committee reporting on its study  of school premises, recommend  ed that the school board proceed immediately with a junior  senior secondary school at  GibsO'ns and that it prepare  for -a junior secondary school  in the Sechelt area.  This report was delivered  by Trusitee Pat Murphy, chairman of the committee. A motion by Trustees Peter Pres-  cesky and John McLeod that  the recommendation be implemented was approved by the  board. The board then decided  to send a letter of appreciation  to the feasibility committee  for its .work. At the same time  the committee turned over to  the board a complete tabulation of its findings covering  seven possible school unit  situations.  . The board next voted in  favor of a motion that Trustee  P. Prescesky be delegated  power to act in expediting the  initial program for reconstruction of Elphinstone school.  The motion recommending  reconstruction of Elphinstone  with consideration for a second  school is precisely the same  as the jnotion the board passed  last Sept; 27.  ���  Trustee Murphy informed  the board he had received from  Vice-principal Larry Grant a  letter revealing an opinion poll  taken among Elphinstone  school staff favored the move  by the board on the school  issue.

Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.  f ��� ���������>  From Exodus to ???  The Holy Land, Christmas and the Israeli are in the  news now but not all for the same reason. Yet all three  are so interwoven in the context of. Christmastide, they  cannot be parted.  In the Book of Exodus, verse 21: "And Moses stretched out his hand,-'over the sea; and the Lord caused the  sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night and  made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided."  Since then they have traversed the world in an effort to find 7a homeland. The terrible Hitlerean "tragedy  plus earlier tragedies which plagued them are a.'matter  of history.  Now they are back in what was their homeland  centuries ago ��� but under what terms? They are battling for an existence as a Jewish nation. They are now  the pawns in a gigantic battle between two great powers,  Russia and the United States. Smaller states while taking  sides are merely spectators.  The stuation is that the'oil which was'beneath their  feet, unknown,, down through.the centuries has become a  nightmare to their way of life. It holds them in jeopardy  with their worst enemy, Russia, holding the key to a possible future they prefer not to think about.  To quote Luke again: "And suddenly there was with  the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God  and. saying Glory to God in the highest, and on earth  peace, goodwill towards men."  Now, minus angels and archangels we must go along  with international, diplomatic services replacing the angels. Let us hope they will produce on earth "peace and  goodwill towards men" ��� including the Israeli.  Those happy songsters!  The second annual Christmas Choral Festival by  school children of the school district, while held under  conditions that limited the event, should not deter a third  annual event next year.  The children plus some senior students, provided an  evening of entertainment, the culmination of considerable work. Their teachers deserve commendation for  struggling through to the end, also the parents who had  their part in presenting their progeney to the best advantage on stage:  Leaving aside individuals and their efforts, how  about the effect of themass production. It was a great  night for music and there is the certainty that the hushed  volume in which they sang as the result of a certain  amount of nervousness and closeness to the audience, signified their total volume remained untouched. They have  been known to make much more noise.  Community singing is a great factor in bringing out  character and who.knows but what schools may in days  to come have a session Friday afternoon hitting the roof  with all stops out. It would be good medicine after a  week of frustrated study. Try it! We think you'll like it!  5-10-20 years ago  Five Years Ago  Mayor Feeney announces the  Motor I.ieense branch has decided to sell car licenses  through the municipal office  . so local people .do not have to  travel to Sechelt.

Sechelt obtains fire truck  bought from the Haney fire  department. . The Board of  Trade financed its trip to  Sechelt.

A pilgrimage last May /to  . the Holy Land hy Mrs. AMs  Harper, a prominent member  of New Brighton, Gambier  Island, iwas made during a lull-  in the international, situation.  On her return to the Sunshine  Coast, Mrs. Harper chronicled  her trip.. The pant covering the  visit to Bethlehem, birthplace  of Jesus, is most fitting for  this time of the year and is  presented for our readers.  Arriving in  Tel  Aviv,   Lod.  Airport we  moved inland by  coach "to   Bethlehem,   bypassing   Lyd.da   in   darkness   and  many   other  places   ahd  into.  New Jerusalem and then Old  Jerusalem,. the driver pointing,  out   to   us   Mt.   Zion,   Mt.   of  Olives,    passing,   through   No  Mans Land to the Handel Ho-  telj  Bethlehem. There supper  was laid on for us. I swear1 it  was roasted camel hump and  chips,   green  peas,   an orange  for dessert and. a glass of watei*  no tea or coffee. That is a separate order, plain bread, noj  butter and a bowl of soup to  start the meal with.  Wednesday, June 6th, wakeiv  by the crowing of a cock at"  4:30 a.m. up at 6:30 a.m. Back  on the coach and to the field  of Boaz, where Ruth and Naomi came back to Bethlehem.  Christians came here in the  4th century. Guide Hama4  pointed put to us the different  trees, as we were entering the4  walk that lead into the shep-"  herd's field, Christmas means  not only the stable and the  manger, but the fields where  the shepherds heard Gloria in  excelsis.  So we took our way eastwards from Bethlehem to the  field iwhere the heavenly host  appeared to the watching  shepherds. Into one of the  original caves of the shepherds  cause they recognized their  own national dress in the robes  of the Wise Men depicted on  the Mosaic of the pediment.  This shrine has escaped attacks made at other times  on the Christian shrines because Muslims accept the story  -of the birth of Jesus, one of  their prophets, and revere His  birthplace. Just within the entrance there is a Muslim Prayer niche. Islam specifically  rejects, the crucifixion "of Jesus  so Holy Sepulchre Church was  not treated with the same res-  -���pect.  The Orthodox Church, the Armenians and Latins have rights  privileges here. The- altar to  the left is Armenian dedicated  j to the Three Kings. Tn the  "manger niche is the Latin A\-  tar to the Wise Men.  In another niche, three steps  lower, is shown the Crib, originally a manger hewn out of  the rock: It is very small, giving room for only a few cattle,  whom    the    shepherds    could  watch      from       the.     actual  cave   higher   up ' when   they  sheltered   here.   When   Mary  and Joseph came here as poor  folk,   the   upper   cave   would  have been the dwelling and the  place of the birth, whilst the  lower one  would shelter the  Child   in   the   manger.   This  spot belongs to the Franciscans  as does also the altar opposite,  dedicated to the  adoration of  the   Magi.   This   church   built  over the reputed site  of the  inn- where the stable, of birth  was referred to in second century as a cave. Crosses on the  pillar put there by mediaeval  pilgrims.  In  the  course  of  time  the  three great portals that lead  into the Church were bricked  up and only a small doorway  ,-was left, to prevent the church  'being- entered   by  horseback.  "If we wish to enter the church  and into the Church of th&&$P mxx?t bend double, a truly  Angels, Oh thfe left, in* t_V*^propi;iate reminder, (of the  valley, are olive orchards, ape}V.Juhiility "of; God, bom here as  north and east lie small cult-r' /Son- of Man.  An  outer court  ivated fields, terraced Walls;  all made with rocks so as.to  keep one field from flowing  into the other'during the rainy  season. The total rainfall per  year is 12 to 14 inches.  Back on the Bus and-to the  Church of 'the.HNatiVity^ From  the shepherds field :we could  see in the. distance The Monastery of the 7Bhnd Sisters of  Bethlehem, also from^here we  could see Bethlehem with its  light -coloredTho uses '-and: many  towers,,* lying in terraces; upon  two hills. The ho uses all made  out of hand carved rocks or  stone, the earth betjween the  stones is of reddish color. It  is barley harvest, the women  gleaning the fields. History  was moved back for me to the  time of Ruth, even the dress  of these women i&n'd the shepherd boys stirred your imagination. You were now living,  before Christ and yet we were  on our way to visit His place  of birth. It all seemed to be  unreal. Yet on the edge of the  wilderness of Judea, is the  House of Bread. It was here  that Ruth once gleaned the  corn and found favor with  Bpaz; and here David kept his  father's flocks of sheep before  he became king.  The   Church   of  Nativity  is  probably the oldest Christian  Church in the world still in  use; preserved ever since it  was built in 325 AD. Persians  intended to destroy this church  in 614 A.D. as they had destroyed many other churches  including the Holy Sepulchre.  The Chufch of the Nativity  has remained till now, as the  oldest church in the world.  True, the Samaritans did damage it in 529 during their insurrection against all Christian  sites, but it was'restored in the  same century,, under the Emperor Justinian. When the Per- .  sians invaded the Holy Land in  6114 and destroyed most of the  churches,     thev     spared    the  Church   of   the   Nativity   be-  leads us to the wide interior  with its four rows of pillars.  The actual cave of the Nativity is beneath the altar. Flights  of steps on both side of the  chancel lead down to the .cave.  A niche in the wall indicates  the    traditional    spot    where  Jesus was born as Saviour of  the world. A silver star in the  marble  pavement  beneath  an  v altar bears the inscription, Hie  | de Virgine Maria Jesus Christ-  ' us    natus    est.    (Here    Jesus  ; Christ was born of the Virgin  Mary.) This spot, too, is under  Greek Orthodox  care.  Of the  lamps burning day and night  around the star, six belong to  the Greeks, five to the Armen-  LEGAL  NOTICE TO CREDITORS  AND OTHERS .

Hydro's  r THE "FOREVER*' RESOURCE  At the present time about 20% of  British Columbia's energy requirements come from electric power, and  or this over 90% is hydro-electric. About  the same amount - 20% - comes from  natural gas, and the balance is almost  entirely oil.  It is important to recognize the  differences between these three  energy resources. Oil arid gas are  fossil fuels in limited supply. Unlike  an oil or gas well, a hydro-electric  plant, once built, goes on producing  energy essentially forever.  This characteristic of hydro-electric   .  energy is of extreme importance. It  distinguishes it from all other sources.  It is, of course, energy from the sun  and as long as the climate and the  physical structure of the country  remain unchanged, the hydro-electric  energy will be perpetual.  The general prospect for energy use  in British Columbia and, generally  speaking, throughout Canada, is one  of a fairly steady but gradual transition from a primary dependence on  the fossil fuels to a majority use of  electric power. This transition will not  take place suddenly; it will probably  take at least thirty years, and possibly  fifty, but we in the electrical industry  must plan for this transition. While the  overall increase in energy use on a  per capita basis will be quite smalt,  the change from oil and natural gas to  electricity, will mean a growth rate for  electrical energy of about 8.0% per  year for years to come.  While the cost of electricity will  continue to rise, as the cost of  materials and equipment that go into  the system increase, it is important to  recognize that once a hydro-electric  plant is built and put into service, the *  cost of the energy from that plant will  remain essentially fixed in price for  the life of the plant.  In British Columbia we are fortunate  that we can meet the next several  years of growth in our electrical  loads, including the replacement of  oil, from hydro sources. B.C. Hydro is  studying the wide range of alternatives available, including geothermar  .y  ���i  power and energy from forest products and municipal wastes.  ENERGY PRIORITIES  There is little need to argue today that  energy is something to be conserved.  It is quite clear that as far as British  Columbia is concerned the priorities  should be, first, to reduce oil consumption, secondly, to conserve gas  resources,, and thirdly, to economize  on the use of electric power. While  both oil and natural gas are diminishing resources, hydro-electric plants  will continue to provide electric  energy for literally hundreds of years.  'fj -<  Our fundamental approach must be,  therefore, to use each form of energy  in the field in which it has greatest  value, or for which it is uniquely  suited, and at the same time to use  the minimum amount of energy that  will meet our reasonable needs. This ,  point of view is, of course, a revolution in the thinking of power utilities.  Over the early history of virtually  everyipower and inutility there was  a major emphasisldn selling energy.:  This was probably justified in the  past, since it was impossible to  provide energy at low cost when the  use was small.    ~ >  B.C.HYDROS GOALS  ;, - /  ,  B.C. Hydro is taking steps to help  people to understand better the  appropriate use of energy and to  encourage them to economize in Its  use.  B.C. Hydro is concerned with  supplying electricity and natural  gas to the people of British Col-'  umbia according to their needs.  Hydro urges its customers to use  this energy responsibly.  Some of the resources involved  are limited in supply: all of them  require the dedication of large  amounts of capital and human  .  labour to secure the energy  supply. Hydro must develop the  required resources with the maximum of efficiency, taking into  account the availability of the  resources themselves, of capital,  and of labour and the fundamental  obligation to use the environment  with a minimum of disturbance.  To achieve this general objective,  B.C. Hydro has accepted several  important responsibilities:  1. To anticipate and meet demands  for power required to sustain the  standard of living expected in  British Columbia and to ensure a  reasonable security of energy  supply.  2. To provide service in a manner  which recognizes the needs and  concerns of customers individually and the public generally,  and to fulfill this responsibility  with appropriate regard for the  environment.  3. To operate efficiently so that cost  of service to the public is maintained at a reasonable level.  4_ To keep the public informed of  Hydro's services, goals and  policies and to encourage public  participation in the development  of programs.  6. Tp provide customers with the  best information available about  i   the efficient use and benefits of  various types of appliances and  equipment.  -i * -��        ��� .  6. To foster installation and equip-  -   ment standards which will result  in economical and efficient use of  energy.  7. to develop patterns of use which  improve the efficiency and  economy of Hydro's generation  and distribution systems.  8. To encourage operations which  have a direct relationship to the  protection of the environment,  and the conservation of other  resources in addition to energy.  Hydro expects to allocate an increasing amount of manpower ahd money  to carry out these obligations. Tp a  limited extent almost all these steps  have been undertaken in the past, but  it is our intention to adopt a new and  dynamic attitude, particularly to those  that relate to the efficient use of the  energy.  *This is the first of periodic communications on the  energy situation. Subsequent messages will deal with  practical suggestions on efficient use of energy^:  *The above is based on excerpts from a speech to  The Vancouver Board of Trade on November 26,1973  by David Cass-Beggs, Chairman of B.C. Hydro.  7  BC. HYDRO Your  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21 - April 20  A serene and tranquil time is  indicated for Aries at this"  time.

Try your  favorite  combination  of  these      ;  ingredients   for  better  mince-  _ meat:  cinnamon,  nutmeg and  coriander,   diced   candied   citron,   lemon   or   orange   peel,    '\  orange    juice,    lemon    juice,      j  brandy, rum or sherry. To extend:   it,   add ��� a   half   cup   of  shredded    peeled    apples    or  cranberries per cup of mincemeat.   Whatever   you   add   to  your   mincemeat,   make   sure     (  you mix it well, cover it, and     '  let it set for at least 24 hours      '  before   using,   to   blend   the     i  flavors. _ i  For   a   very   special   treat,  serve a mincemeat parf ait. Put     ;  layers   of   vanilla   ice   cream     ;  and  mincemeat   in   a  parfait  glass, top with nuts or a cherry     .  and just wait for the compliments.

Y|lf    |js|^|ssss^s  mm UBS) EM  beginning  Let's be optimistic and assume  you don't have an accident. Or hit  any parked cars. Or speed. Let's assume you stay at the party longer  than you planned and had three or  fourdrinks���enoughtodrinkto make  you legally impaired. All in good  fellowship. All without malice. And  for some reason, you are stopped.  Here's what to expect:  1 Breathalizer ���%*��  tremely adept at spotting impaired  drivers. There are dozens of telltale  clues. If you are suspected, you will  be asked to submit to a breathalizer  test. This is mandatory and refusal  can result in serious charges. If you  have consumed enough to give you  a .08 reading, you can be charged  with impaired driving.  .:��� ^.7' ���'���>!'������  2lail Very likely, you will be  MPM jailed overnight. For the  average citizen, this Is a terrifying  experience. Impaired driving comes  under the Criminal Code, arid that  is just how you will be treated. You  will be fingerprinted, asked for alias',  relieved of your belt, tie, shoelaces,  and personal possessions, allowed  one phone call, and be placed in a  cell. In the morning, your breakfast  will be slid under the bars of the cell  door. You will find the night harrowing and have plenty of time to reflect.  In the meantime, your wife and  children will be worried, distressed  and slightly mortified.  3FfnpC The arresting officer's  _ ��� ���If��� report.cprroborated  by your breathalizer reading, will  normally result in a conviction. The  number of convictions is increasing  every year.Over 12,000 are expected in British Columbia alone this  year. 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.Addtothisthe $50 to several hundred dollars you'll spend on a  lawyer and you've dropped quite a  bundle.  Suspensions"^  had so much as a parking ticket in  thirty yearsof driving, you can expect  to have your 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 sur-  charged.That means your 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 from you.  Criminal courts  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  grace you can expectabo utone week  after the trial.  These are the hard coid 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.  Iff you drink, don't drive  Government of British Columbia  Motor-Vehicle Branch  British Columbia Automobile  Insurance Board 6     Coast News, Dec. 19, 1973.

Presented for public vieiw on  Monday afternoon.and Tuesday evening of this week, the  pageant was designed and written by Don McGrae of the  school's maintenance siaff and  ably produced by the genial  principal, Sam Reid. The school  chorus, directed by Roby'n Eri-  wata, who leaves' the school  sitaff this term to be married  in her New Zealand home, ahd  the school band conducted by  Weldon Epp provided the fanfares, songs and carols to accompany the pantomime of  Yuletide cheer and, the Nativity scene.

The issue at the time  resulted more from a shortage  of facilities rather than from  a shortage of fuel resources.  . It was also an issue that I suspected of having been created  by the oil industry faced with  the effective resistance of environmentalists to the Alaskan  pipeline.  Since then the escalation of  the crisis due to the Middle-  East situation has resulted in  a shortage of oil supplies in  many parts of the world and  a. windfall to the oil industry  as the price of crude oil has  almost doubled on the world  market.  Now the men who run the  giant oil companies are by far  the most powerful men in the  industrial world. The modern  industrial state depends on  energy and, accordingly, the  men who control the energy  in large measure control the  state.  "When they choose to wield  their   power,   the  oilmen   are  listened to, and usually obeyed.  .   The   Energy   Crisis   of   1973  plays directly into their hands.  This  crisis   has brought   to  the people of Canada the realization   that   the   world   must  ���soon   pay   a   penalty   for   the  luxuries  it   now  enjoys,   luxuries   that   have   resulted   in  pollution of the environment,  depletion of energy resources  and  the growing s dependence  of governments on the major  oil corporations, a dependence  that has resulted in a wealth  of   tax   breaks   that   governments   have   denied   ordinary  citizens on the assumption that  this  kind  of  'free'  enterprise  (benefits the economy.  /Nothing is so revealing  as  to examine where each of the  political parties stand on the  oil question.

They take the position  that the price of oil in Canada  should follow the UjS. price:'}  Now the spread between  ���Canadian price and the UjS.  price (using the.Montreal and  Chicago markets as guideline^)  is $1.90 a barrel in December  and will increase considerably  in the future. "  At present Canada produces  about 700 million barrels of  oil a year. If the Conservative  policy were adopted and the  price of oil in Canada" were allowed to rise $1.90 a harrel,  the oil companies would increase their revenues by $1400  million a year and Canadians  would be paying 10 to 12 cents  a gallon more for their gasoline, farm fuel and home  heating oil.  The hat/tie in parliament  during this session- has been  to force the Liberal Government to prevent siphoning off  our oil supplies to an oil-  hungry United States and to  protect Canadian- consumers  from an accelerating oil price  increase.  Oh the basis of the government's last aninute effort to  meet with the demands of an  NDP caucus already committed to the defeat of the government,   the  Conservative   non-  Coast News. Dec. 19, 1973.  confidence motion of Oct.   10  was defeated.  The poss.bility now exists  that the government itself  may decide to call an election  before the Christmas recess  in order to take advantage of  the political situation.  Whatever  the  case may  be  I would like to take this opportunity of wishing everyone  a    Merry   Christmas   and   a  Happy-New Year. It has been  a privilege and a pleasure to  have   served   the    people   of  Coast    Chilcotih    during    the  past year and I sincerely hope  that the New Year will bring  us  greater confidence in  the  future of this country and the  aspirations of Canadians from  coast to coast.

This  will be drooping and will bend  away from the prevailing wind  The branches will be long and  spaced irregularly on the trunk  On young treesi, the fofliage  will be drooping and feathery.  Next look for a dark, rich  brown .bark (lighter on young  trees) With flat, scally ridges  and deep furrows. The needles  will be about % to % inches  long on the same twig and  blunt with two fine white  lines on the under surface,  one on each side of the midrib. Cones will be about %"  long.  This B.C.

'The boss must' have given mem a real pep talk this morning!"  Health co-operation sough!  were often so busy they did  not have time to educate the  More co-operation between  agencies involved in puibJi&A  health was advocated by_Dr. public in these matters. Dr.  Alastair Thores, Coast-Garibal- Thores felt that attention  di Union Board of Health'\,)pt must be paid to education but  the winter meeting of tie. regretted the lack of means to  board at Marine Inn, Polwflig.'' do this- He felt this led to  River, in late November.  ..; -'s> ���<-. hostility iby the. public in hav-  Dr.  Thores  spoke  generally     in,g to meet regulations which  on the aims and objective $>1  Public Health and how he and  his staff were trying to achieve  these   in   the   Coast-Garibaldi  area.   Despite   the   increakhg  emphasis   on   comprehensive  health care services and control of costs, all of which he  felt were  of importance,   the  basic role of public health services was prevention, and he  felt strongly that this must be  strengthened  and maintained.  Only a very small percentage  of rising health care costs were  being   devoted   to   prevention  which  he . felt  was both  the  most   economic and also   the  most humane approach to disease. \  , There   was    a    danger    in  streamlining   and   integrating,  services that even this could be  deleted. He noted that .while  there was concern about rising  costs, projections showed that  health education and welfare  costs were a relatively diminishing proportion of total government expenditures and cautioned that these were the key  areas which the World Health  Organization   had   underlined  could be used ;to elevate and  improve our socialstructure.  He  called  for  more   cooperation  between  all  agencies  involved in health locally and  mentioned  the Health  Unit's  role as a catalyst. However the  resources were never enough  to do everything and priorities  had to be set using training  and  judgement  to  emphasize  what    was    most    likely    to  achieve worthwhile results. He  did not feel that rushing a-  round gave best value for money  or was; the most- humane  way to approach health care.  Infectious   disease  was   not  conquered, f only   held   back,  safeguards had to be retained  Dr. Thores was concerned a-  bout falling immunization levels and said we could anticipate   deaths from   diphtheria  for instahce if thiis continued.  All children should continue to  be immunized. Smallpox presented a more complex situation but he was not satisfied  that we were yet completely  safe from it.  New epidemics, for instance  cancer, heart disease, accidents  the problems of the old and .  disaffected youth needed new .  approach ,oi\  preventive   and  community lines. Where public  health had been able to apply  measures not directly involy-'  ing people's co-operation, the  greatest   ' success    has    been  achieved; but where  people's  habits and attitudes had to be  modified this had hot been so.^  This was the area on which we';  had to concentrate in future.,  Dr. Thores mentioned smoking  and fluoridation as two areas  where public health had not  been   successful   in   charigirig  people's attitudes.  Concern about the environment and the many activities  of the Health Unit in maintaining surveillance were discussed  Surveillance over water quality, sewage disposal, restaurants, campsites, day care centres, etc., was maintained. Unfortunately .people often did  not know . how Health Unit  staff  operated,   and-the staff  they did not Understand or  more often to apathy, neither  of these attitudes contributed  to improving the health of the  community as a   whole.  Various reports oh health in  recent  years   with  their   emphasis oh integration and economy where. mentioned and  concern was expressed about  the need to move carefully in  implementing changes at local  health levels YHe felt that the  existing public 'health services  have   served - B.C.   well  with  their central supportive structure  and local  accountability  through Boards of Health. How  ever, rapidly increasing workloads and commitments were  threatening both effective operation and staff morale in the  more widely scattered health  units.      \ *  There was now a need for  new staff in such areas as has  been mentioned physiotherapy,  dental hygiene, nutrition and  health education in. order to  meet the public's needs. Every .  team needs a recognisable lead  er to operate effectively and  to permit this under the new  conditions, felt that consideration must be given to^reduc-  ing the < size., of health - unit's  in .some cases to appointing  assistant staff to permit great  administrative . devolvement  and support for the field staff.  Whatever changes niight occur  he felt that staff consultation  was necessary and that uncertainty could be damaging to  staff morale.

You'll find the help yon need  in the Directory  Coast News, Dec. 19, 1973.  Poini of Law  {By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  Q. I am 15 years of age and'  have to get marriedi if you  know what I mean. My mother  will consent but my father  won't. My boy friend is 18 ab  he's OJK. I heard I only need  one parent's consent.* Is this  -right?  A. You heard wrong. Your  fiance, being under 19, will  have to obtain the consent of  both parents. You will have  to obtain the consent of both  parents and. being r un_er 16,  you will have to obtain a court  order authorizing the marriage.  The court may give such an  order, but this will depend on  all the circumstances ��� of the  case such as your fiance's occupation and/ income and the  likelihood! of the marriage being a success.  You will have also to obtain  a second court order dispensing with your father's consent.  In order to obtain this you  have to prove to the satisfaction of a judge that your  father is unreasonably withholding his consent or that lie  is refusing his consent from  undue motives. Your position  looks doubtful.  I presume your boy friend  is the prospective father. He  can be charged with seduction  by the criminal authloiitiejs  but it is not the practice of the  prosecutor's office to so proceed unless the matter is reported to them, nor, in cases  where the male person is, at  least, attempting, to marry the  prospective mother.  '  Q. What is the difference between ,a joint tenancy and a  tenancy in common?  A These are two of the sey-  - eral ways that land may be  ���jointly-owned. Let us assume  the simple case of A. and B.  each owning a half interest in  a parcel of land. If the land is  owned in joint tenancy, when  one joint tenant dies ibis half  must go to the surviving joint  tenant and nothing that is said  in the will of the deceased concerning that land can have any  effect.  If the land is owned in tenancy in common the rule is the  reverse, and when one tenant  dies, his interest goes to the  person named in his will, or  according7 to 7the rules of intestacy, if he has no will.  Joint tenancy is common a-  mong spouses. If, however,  there should be a separation  or divorce either party may  wish to draw a will leaving  his entire eslkte1�� say, the  children, or another person. In  this case, a lawyer should be  consulted;  He can break: the joint tenancy and convert it into a tenancy in common very easily.  This, of course could be a tyifp  edged sword and may operate  against the party breaking the  jointure, that is the other joint  tenant may die first and the  person who has broken the  jointure would not inherit. 7  Two tenants in common may  hold in ; any proportion, one  half each, three quarters to  one quarter or nine tenths to  one tenth. There may be three  joint owners and they may  hold in any proportion. Joint  tenants, however, must hold  equally, if there are two, they  must hold half each, if there  are three, one-third each, etc.  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have you  AL'S USED FURNITURE  -    WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons ��� 886-2812 Potato  Chips  OLD DUTCH Tri-Pak  8y4 oz  2  From Your  Good Friends  at the GO-OP  MANDARIN  ORANGES  CO-OP, 10 oz. tin  3/w79c  SMOKED OYSTERS  CLOVERLEAF  3% oz. tin ���  2,OT89e  BROMO SELTZER  FAMILY SIZE. 5% oz.  99c  TURKEYS  CAN.

To Herb, born on a stump  farm, just outside the fishing.  - settlement of Gibsons Landing of 1896; on acreage now-  occupied by Sunshine Coast  Trailer Court at the S-turn  Christmas remains to this day  a very special time of year.  The first intimation he had  as a six-year old lad of the  coming holiday was the school  Christmas tree in the assembly  hall, gaily decorated with  presents heaped under its  sweeping boughs, one for each  child. 'Santa , Claus was on  hand, the traditional roly-poly -  figure, who somehow bore a  curious resemblance to a  twihkly-eyed neighbor just  down the road.  Herb is .ar bit hazy as to details of the.concert which accompanied the presentation of  S'fts. Gibson _ school was then  catejd where the present Elementary School noV stands.  The structure attended by the  five Steinlbrunner children in'  1902, was in 1909, moye4 to the  rear of the property where it  As the Steinbrunner clan  ventured down stairs, the tree  shone resplendent in its decorations and piled up presents  looked ever so inviting in  their gay wrappings, but first  breakfast *and then the chores.  Everyone 'turned to give a  hand. Just because it was  Christmas was no excuse for-  neglecting the animals. Each  child went about- his or. her  task of feeding the pigs, chick-  ��� ens, milking the cowsr, and  with-an extra measure of mash  for the horses.  The chores over in jig time,  the young Steinbrunners troop  ed in to see what wonderful  things lay under the tree for  each of them and soon the  place -was in a welter of torn  wrappings and expansively admired gifts.  By now it was play-time  outdoors, a time to -let off  steam and meet the neighbor  children. Meantime'in the farm  kitchen mother Steinbrunner  and her girls were hard at it  preparing the Christmas din- .  ner.  The carefully put-away pies,  cakes, cookai__t, ; home' made  bread and buns, were brought  out and vegetables, prepared  the night before, were put to .  served a$ t\ie .first Secondary   ''boiling; Elsie, the youngest had  School uritil 1920,  Getting to; sphopl'm those  ' days was strictly a walking  affair, no school buses, just  a wandering trail through the  bush. -When it -was cold! or  raining we ran all the wayi  there and back. We hardly  ever missed a day, no matter  what ithe weather,' Herb said.  Come Christmas Eve, expectations for the big day  mounted. [Right after supper  dishes were washed-up and the  most beautiful tree in all the  world, carefully selected- and  felled right in their owr> wood  lot.was brought in from the  porch-and set up in a prominent place in /the living room  to one side of the big open  fireplace. ,, \.  " Then began the decoratipg,  of course all'1 home-madef no  strings of electric lights or  sparkling > glass- ana plastic  baubles, but lack- of these v^ere  (more than --"triad- up tor" by  carefully cut out stars and all  sorts of paper ornaments tied  in   together   with   yards' and  the job of ladling out the pickles, relish arid of course an  extra big' bowl of cranberry  sauce and. best of all, three  beautiful 8-pound chickens, all  ready to come out of the oven.  No one ever thought of turkeys in this out of the way set-  *<tlemen$. Besides these birds  had been "specially"' culled out  of the flock and fattened up  weeks ahead.  Herb    Steinbrunner    recalls'  those   long 'ago   Christmasses  on an outlying farm,'Could be  that people today wouldn't con  sider this meal extra special,  perhaps  not  by  present day  standards,' Herb declared, 'But  I never sat down to a better  me^l   than   at   my   mother's  ; table bac^phvthe XarmJ^'^'*?  ground about three P_ni.v the  dinner guests started arriving,  x folks from around about with  scads of young ones, also 3ome..  lonely  bachelors.  In  they  all  trouped,   men,   women,   children, some with babies in arms.  At the threshold they were   .  greeted   with   mugs   of   rum  and shortbread.   ,  By the time the last guest  had reluctantly pushed back  from the table, on came the  fruit, the -tigs, with nuts to  be' cracked and home-made  candy, all topped off by steam  ing mugs^ of fresh brewed  coffee'or tea and milk for the  young ones.  After   the   table   had   been  cleared,   the   group   drew   a-  round the old organ and with  Ruby   playing,   the   carols   of  Christmas    time    and    Elsie  helping  out on her violin,   a  real   old   fashioned   sing-song  that,   made   the   rafters   ring.  Later, much later, the tired but  happy guestsv prepared to depart  into  the  night,   but  the  spirit  of Christmas and Tiny  Tim still lingered with echoes,  of 'May God Bless us Every  One.'  'Those were good days,' said  Herb, somewhat' regretfully,  'We've surely been blest with  a good many of them, and now  in spite of the fact the Doc  appears to have me in tow, .  one thing is certain, Mother  and I will celebrate Christmas  day as usual,' well, not quite,  as we'll' be missing many of  the family and old friends, in  fact nearly all of them, .but  ���we'd like to think even as old  Scrooge, who finally came to  know how to keep the spirit  of Christmas aglow. 7  EFFICIENT S-1STEM  Every year,  an average of *  2,000 to 3,000 pounds of waste  \  rains down on each acre of our  British Columbia forest floor  -  twigs,   seeds,  branches and  other debris from the layers of  forest above.   Immediately it  falls,- the  decomposers go to   -  work, (millions' of tiny earthworms,   insect-larvae, animals'  and plants, who get busy chew  ing,    dissolving    and    eatirig.  Their   process ' returns   basic  substances to the soil and air  which ajgain become available  to  green plants for  growing  and--m-til--g food. An efficients  and  economical   garbage  dis- "  posal system!  yards of silver/gold, red, white     laqed Tom & Jerrys. As if by  blue, orange and green colored paper loop's and swirls.   \  Then    the  'presents,    quite  modest in number and^ content  were brought put and helped  up around the base of the tree  one toy or game, and one gift  such as hand-knit socks, mitts,     found themselves interspersed  mufflers   or   a   tie   for   each  child,   while   outside   on   the  porch, a" home-made toboggan  or sleigh.  It took combined efforts and  patience of the' parents to finally tuck them all in their beds  with a warning Santa might  psiss them over" if they didn't  get right off to sleep.  Quite early Christmas morning1, the - bulging stockings  hung at the foot of each bed  were hastily explored _or consents of nuts, hard candy, a  stocking filler arid in the toe  of each a-t big golden orange,  indeed a luxury in those days.  magic awkwardness and constraint vanished, as did the  Tom & Jerrys. ,Then came the  call to eat. Chairs and benches  ���yvpre soon filled and the five  young Steinbrunners, Herb,  Del,    Tom,   Ruby- and   Elsie  among the now carefree and  voluble guests.  Then the three prize birds,  basted to a golden brown and  sizzling hot appeared right out  of the oyen. It was amazing  how those mounds of steaming  hot mashed potatoes and turnip  disappeared, along with generous portions of chicken,  loaves ,of fresh home-baked  bread and dozens of buns.      '  It's a wonder there was any  room left for the-rich Christmas pudding, and the sweet  spicey sauces, not to mention /  the steaming mince tarts, generous slices of Christmas cake  I  Our wish is simple and sincere. May the holiday  bring gladness to you $11. Thanks to everyone.  COAST PAVING LTD.

The next deadline for submission of applications will be  Feb. 1, and announcements of  the results of those applications will be made next'April  1, .Submission and announce- -  rnent dates originally had been  scheduled for Jan. 1 and Feb. 1  While making it clear that  he was pleased .with the oyer- ' ���  whelming response to the fund,  the minister said he attributed  the heavy demand on the fund  to a substantial backlog in  community recreation facility  needs throughout the province.  The dem-ind. on the fund is  expected   to Y slacken   in   the ���  next   government   fiscal   year. "  The minister estimate-! more  than-50 million dollars of facility construction had 'bpetti  generated for 90 communities  by the fund since grants were"  announced last Aug. 1. He  noted that ho other Canadian  Province had7a scheme for  anywhere' near the financial,  .support give*, in British Columbia to recreational facility  construction.  Under the terms of the fund  guidelines the government  may. make grants towards recreational facilities of one-  third of the capital cost up to '  one-tlhird of one 'million-  dollars7 ..Y  '  The intent of the fund act  is to provide assistance in financing community recreational facilities' sponsored by  a municipality or non-profit  cultural, ethnic or religious  group.  , thinking and wise judgment  will be at your fingertips.

Although poinsettias, holly,  cyclamen, azaleas and mistletoe have become symbolic of  the Christmas season, they do  not -represent the plants tharfj  grew around Jerusalem and  Bethlehem at the time of the  Nativity. ,  ��� The road from Jerusalem to  ��� Bethlehem taken toy Joseph  and Mary on the last lap of  their journey froih Galilee,  whidh was less than IS miles,  would have been interesting  botanically. To the wrest lay  the almosit barren hills or  steppe country7 and to the east  were the evergreen forests.  The plants of the hills would  have been made up mofrtly of  wormlwood      (Artemisia),  v a  plant mentioned several time-  in  the Bible because of iits  bitter taste and its inefoMating  qualities when brewed.  The white broom (Retama)  also grew on these barren hills.  It is quite amilar to "the Scottish broom but hasi more flexible branches and white, instead of yellow, flowers. It is  referred to in the Bible as the  juniper or rflfchniar.    .   '  Today it still grows in the  desert arid hilly regions and is  certainly the most beautiful  shrub of the country. In the  desert it is the v.only bush of'  any size tha&b offers sliade.  In 1884, H.B. Tristram, in a  survey of Palestine, described  it as unsurpassed even by the  apple blossoms of an English  Sing  the  carols!  Delight in merry  Christmas tunes...  _ lots of lighthearted  fun.

One legend says that  the crackling of the broom  plants among which Mary and  the Infant Jesus were hiding  alrnost revealed their whereabouts to the soldiers of Herod.  On the more- fertile side of  the road to Bethlehem, several  interesting plants would be  growing. One of these, the  caroto tree (Ceratonia siliqua},  also known as the locust tree,  has pods that are quite edible,  although in those days they  were eaten mostly by poor  people and swine. These pods,  and not insect locusts are believed to have been consumed  by John the Baptis*.  Seeds of the carob tree were  used in ancient times as measures of weight and from  these we get the word carat.  The terebinth (Pistacia tere-  binthus), that also grows in.  this region, is a large deciduous tree with straggly boughs  and pinnate foliage. It is very  much like an oak in winter  condition, but in summer it  bears inconspicuous flowers  and red fruits. This is the  turpientine tree or telm of the  Bible. It was probably the inost  common tree of Ithe area, for  not far away is the valley of  Elan where David slew Goliath, and which was named  after the elan or terebinth  tree. -      _  Allied to the terebinth tree; -  and growing with it, was "the  /  GA Coast News, Dec. 19, 1973.  lentisk tree" (Pistacia lentiscus)  the 'balm mentioned in Genesis  43.11, and the pistacia ((Pi-Stadia vera), well known even  today for its nuts. Several  oaks, including the somewhat  stunted kermes oak (Quercus  coccifera), would also have  been seen in this area., This  oak is usually infested with ait  insect from which a dye used  extensively for dyeing wool in  Biblical times was obtained.  On   open   spaces  along   the  road nearing Bethlehem would  also  be  seen  the   spectacular  windflojwer   (Anemone coron-  aria). It is considered by most  writers to be the true lily of  the field mentioned in the Ser-  , mon  on  the  Mount. Since  it  flowers' from    mid-December  until March,  the chances are  that it would be just starting  to   show  itp   colors  of white,  purple,- mauve   and   red,   in  beauty surpassing Solomon in  all his glory.  Plants associated with the  Nativity itself are few and  simple. The forage plant that  formed the bed for .the Infant  Jesus in the manger at Bethlehem was most likely millet,  for since time immemorial  Ithis plant has ibeen grown for  forage and J grain. Perhaps  other cereal plants such as  barley, oats and spelt (an old  form of wheat still grown in  Germany), were mixed with  it, as they were also cultivated  in those days.  Frankincense     arid     myrrh  brought by the Wise Men were  from exdtic trees. Frknkiri-.  cense obtained from a species  of Bosiwellia from Arabia, Abyssinia, India and ~ the ,. East  Indies, 'was procured hy the  Hebrews in trade. A gum exudes from the tree in round!  or oblong drops and is white,  yellow or pale red. It has a  bitter taste and, when warmed  or burned, gives off a strong  balsam-like odor in- the form  of a volatile oil.  Myrrh is obtained from a  species of iGommiphora. The  tree also yields a gummy exudation that constitutes most  of the myrrh of commerce.  The species of myrrh used in  Biblical days were low, scrubby, thick and stiff-lbranched  small trees growing in rocky  places. The gum exudes naturally from the stem or branches  br was obtained by artificM  incision. It is oily at first but  solidifies when exposed to the  air. The ancient Egyptians  burned it in their Ifcemples arid  embalmed their dead with it.  It is bitter. and slightly pungent to the taste and1 is used  even (today as an astringent  tonic and externally as a  cleansing agent.  One very beautiful and well-  knofwn plant associated with  the Nativity is Lilium .candi-  dum, the Madonna lily, now  the' floral emblem of the province of Quebec. This was the  lily carried mTthe hands of the  angel Gabriel when he told  Mary that she would be the  mother of Jesus.
