 The Sunshine  y  Provincial Library,  Victoria* E* C.  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  Planning costs jump  10c yer copy  Volume 27 Number 49, December 18, 1974  The regional board's provisional ,bud|get for  1975 reveals  an increase tax requisition of  122% to the villages of Gibsons  and   Sechelt   for   community  planning, Alderman Kurt Hoehne told Gibsons council Tuesday night.  Hoehne said that the increase," which amounts to $23,-  685, is the, villages' share and  that the participation of Gibsons alone in this function was  not visible in the preliminary  budget. ' .  Hoehne also stated that the  tax requisition increase for  general government services  has increased by $15,000 or  22%, and for garbage sites the  increase was $14,000 or 24.5%.  Although the actual dollar  increase in tax requisition will  be borne, iby Gibsons and Sechelt the  percentage  increaseV  will  apply equally to the individual villages,   y    v  Hoehne said'that he did nqt,  know at this time what the:  actual dollar increase would?  be for Gibsons and will ask thef  Regional board for a break-1  down in the figures "so -we'  know exactly what the Gibsons taxpayer is paying."  School strap debated  Being' reported to a parent  is the worst punishment that  a school can inflict in the eyes  of most students.  This was a consensus reached at a meeting between representatives of .the Sechelt Indian Band and the school board  where topics of discussion centred around classroom management, student discipline, racial discrimination, and communication     between    home,  school and students.  Trustee Celia Fisher, reporting on the meeting at last  week's school board meeting  said that representatives of the  Indian band were interested in  hearing parent reaction' concerning the re-institution of  the strap as a disciplinary  measure.  The Indian band felt that  most small children would react poorly to being strapped  Holiday deadline!

Trustee   Joe   Horvath   said'  that if the strap was re'-insti-;;  tuted it "would be even less ef-"  fective than before. "We must'  develop/ another system of discipline. I'm convinced it's in-'  volving    the    parents    much  more." ^   '  Trustee John MacLeod complained that it's "the. parents"  of the kids who cause all the;.  trouble who we can never get*'  ahold of."  Gibsons voters  iSome weeks ago, John Lewis,  <cth!aii___an oif the mini-bus  committee said: "Ifs going to  be a great day when I can see  that bus travelling on the  highway." That great day has  finally arrived.  Last Friday afternoon, driver  Al Savage of Halfmoon Bay  rolled the new three-quarter  ton mini-bus in front of Gibsons municipal hall and out  stepped the first passengers.  Among those were (above)  John Lewis,  right,  and Ellen  Bragg, left, who, as members  of the Sunshine Coast Human  Resources Society have worked long and hard to make the  bus a reality.  MLA Don Lockstead was  present for the inaugural trip,,  and on behalf of Human Re- '  sources Minister Norman Levi  congratulated all those involved. Mr. Lockstead said that  he had received {word frcwn  Lsvi that the mini-bus oper-  The mini-bus has a capacity  of 11 passengers and has removable seats and an electric  lift at the back to accommodate Wheel chairs.  - Alljusers must obtain registration cards which are available oh request from St. Mary's  Hospital, mental clinics, dental' clinics and the human resources offices.

Most people would admit the  open area at Gibsons .Elementary school has been a failure.  This is the general sentiment  of the school board which has  been trying' to alleviate "psychological problems" at Gibsons Elementary.  The board has called in experts to conduct air tests in  the open area of the school because the ventilation is poor  and children are being sent  home.  "People are not happy with  the open area. Maybe we  should just abolish it," Chairman Agnes Labonte suggested.  Peter Prescesky, building  and grounds committee chairman, said that the _ecor is  dingy and dark and that brightening up the rooms, would  make things better.  "The open area has been  there for six years and there  has beeh one problem after another," trustee Celia Fisher  commented.   l  Oil companies pressured  Local political pressure is  being placed on oil companies  in an effort to have them concentrate all bulk oil stofage  facilities at one single terminal.  Alderman Kurt Hoehne told  1 council Tuesday night the* Indian council will provide adequate land on Reserve Number  v 2 in Sechelt subject to ecological studies.  Hoehne said the'rest is up  to the oil companies who have  been bucking the idea for  years. "The regional board  now has bylaws that will-not  allow expansion of existing oil  storage facilities." Present storage tanks and terminals are  located in Hopkins Landing,  Gibsons, Roberts Creek and  Davis Bay.  Alderman Stuart -Metcalfe  said he doubted whether the  Sechelt area is the best place  for such a common terminal  because there is poor anchorage there.  "But that doesn't matter to  Gibsons residents," Metcalfe  said, "and I am told it will  have no effect on the- cost of  our oil products."  Hall planned for public use  [Public involvement in clubhouse and grounds use of the  Old Age Pensioners association Franklin road project was  expressed at Monday night's  meeting of the Gibsons Voters  Association.    7' -  Jim Holt, ,1974 president informed the meeting that the  project, now partially completed was not solely for OAPO  members.lt Twas intended that  the public Tat large would benefit because i the OAPO would  not be using it on! a f uU^tixrie^  ^ba>sis.

He also praised the high school  students for their efforts at  helping. -  As the organization faced the  responsibility of raising two-  thirds; of $45,000 project cost,  money producing schemes must  beTused and.he mentioned the  Kiwanis were willing to pass  ; their summer boat raff le oyer  to 'them; Y ^ 'vyy?'���'������''" ^'';i:r: ���-���'  payer associations and is now  composed of Gibsons, /Pender  Harbour,    .-Gibsons     Heights,  ' Roberts , Creek and West Gibsons ratepayer organizations.  This was revealed at Monday  night's meeting of Gibsons Voters Association when Cliff Gilker, chairman of the Sunshine  Coast organization welcomed  Gibsons village as a member.  Mr. Gilker maintained the  council had done a great deal  of work in bringing to the attention of provincial authorities that Chapman Creek conditions required some official  attention or the area would be  deprived of its major water  source. Mr. Gilker said pres-  , sure from the Sunshine Coast  council did considerable good  for the community.  /  Winter club  plea rejected  Gibsons Winter Club received'word "last week that their  amplication for a local initiative grant (UP) has been  turned down.  The letter "of rejection from  provincial program manager K.  Ouellette states that other applicants from this area more  closely met the needs of the  community.v  It was reported at Gibsons  council meeting Tuesday night  that $14,000 had been allocated under the federal grant  scheme for a retarded child-'  ren's project in this area.  7 The winter club had planned  to use the 7 LIP grant to subsidize the cost of labor in construction of the curling rink.

PEP received a considerable  boost at TMonday night's meeting of Gibsons Voters Association when a disaster emergency movie really held the attention' of. members.  Aid. Kurf Hoehne, official  Gibsons representative iwith'  -PEP introduced Don Pye, Sunshine Coast' co-ordinator for  PEP (Provincial Elmergency  Program) who spoke on today's need for emergency disaster programs because of the  damaging products now transported from area to area which  could create disastrous effects  accidentally.  The movie which took viewers step by step through the  organization of a wide, area  emergency crew in the Los Angeles area, how it was built up  and What happened when it  held a full time practice and  eventually, the real thing, an  earthquake.  Aid; Hoehne recalled how  serious was the situation when  not too many years ago; an  eagle  downed a plane . inside  the village resulting in the  complete breakdown of communications when wires were  severed. He said it could happen again.  He commented on the fact  the people on whom the possibilities of an emergency  would fall failed to show up  for the picture. However he  intended to bring another picture from the PEP library involving a school bus disaster.  resigns  Regional post  Charles F.

Consumer prices tally fastest rise since controls taken off after the last war, TMs is what one eastern newspaper headlme states. There can clearly be lio room for  complacency about Canadian or international economies,  the president of the Bank of Nova Scotia says.  The wholesale price index (usually two months or  less ahead of the consumer index) for October was 17.9  percent higher than one year ago. The Canadian Imperial  Bank of Commerce chairman maintains inflation everywhere is essentially /'home-made''- anddomestic policies  can be used to combat it. Labor leader Joe Morris puts  thumibs down on wage controls.  After several years of repeated situations no different than the examples in previous paragraphs, the federal government is seeking a consensus of the situation  from those self-same people.  The prime ^minister explaining his request said the  consensus being sought is on achieving ways of slowing  down the rate of inflation, and he hoped to bring it down  to a level which will cause the government less concern.  That, he' said, is the general subject of concensus consultations. The object of meetings of various groups differs  according to the groups that are meeting. Various ministers will be meeting with various groups and discus*  sing different aspects of inflation with them, the prime  minister said.  It is quite possible no new assumptions will result  from this concensus. Perhaps the government is striving  to discover just how far it can go towards putting on  some sort of controls or perhaps the government is creating another stall in the hopes the cloud of inflation will  Start rolling away.  As the rolling away idea does not hold merit Richard Gwyh's article in the Vancouver Sun last week is  worth considering. In this article Mr. Gwyn maintained  consensus building is the weakest response government  can make to any problem. "Mr. Turner's calculation is  that it has to be tried first before anything more Draconian can beimposed on the country.  "By next spring," continues Mr. Gwyn,"Mr. Turner  will have his answer. His approach deserves a try. In  reserve he has already one valuable piece of information.  A post-election opinion poll by the Liberals showed TO  THEIR ASTONISHMENT, that a; majority still' favors  price and income controls." :  These concensus meetings will be held during January and February with the results becoming obvious  probably in March. The government may decide eventually to pin its future on the results of the consensus. Perhaps this is one phase of government activity which  should have open meetings ait which the press could reveal expressed opinions. They should make good reading.

The groups represent the surrounding islands.  .Killer whales (Orcinus orca)  are the largest dolphins in existence today. Like all whales  ���and dolphins, they ares aquatic  mammals "that have evolved  , from a terrestrial mammalian  ancestor. In fact their nearest  living land relatives are the  evenrtoed ungulates, such as  cattle ( and deer, which share  -with Cetaceans.  Killer whales therefore are  warm-blooded creatures' that  breathe air with lungs. Their  superficial resemblance to cold  blooded fishes merely indicates  that both types of animal are  adapted to the same, environment . "   .    - '       ..Whales and  dolphins maintain  their ho dy temperatures  with an insulating layer of fat;  called    blubber,    which    also  contributes   to   their   natural  buoyanjey.       TJhey       breathe  through a nasal opening at the  top of the head, called the blow  hole.   The   blowhole is   really;  the   modified   nostrils,   which  grated from the ancestral position at the front of the snout.  Young   dolphins   are   bbrh  tail-first   into  the, water   and  are able :to. swim by themselves  within minutes. They feed on  their   mother's   rich  milk  for  several .months,   the. mother  actually  being   able  to  squirt  the milk into her hungry off-  .spring's mouth!  Dolphins  have  developed  the  capacity  to produce high-frequency sounds and to receive  and   interpret   echoes-   their  own   unique   SONAR  system.  'Sounds   are   produced  in   the  blowhole and .projected through  the    head    into    the    wateW  in front of the animal. Andb-  ject in the vicinity reflects the  sound, and the dolphin listens  for the returning echo. In this  manner killer whales and other  dolphins can form a highly accurate picture of their immediate   surTOuhdings; TheT'ranger  of  sounds   employed  is   very  wide, -so   that   the   tenn_^^7  lobes of the Drain, which re-J  ceive the echoes, are extremely;  well developed: This accounts.:  in part for the fact Tthat th^t  dolphin brain is an extremely'  large one.   Y   7t '.7t''  The l_Uler whales which live  along the British *Columlbi_  coastline can reach a length  of 25 feet if male, or 2(1 feet  if female. However, the powerful tail, with, its wide flukes,  can, despite the animal's great  size, propel it through the water at speeds of up to 23 miles  per hour. The mouth of a killer  whale is an awesome sight indeed, having as many as 50  white teeth. Large and cone-  shaped, they are curved toward the throat and used to  grasp food items, wihich in  turn are swallowed whole or  in large chunks.  The killer whale is first and,  foremost a predator, and most   ;  of its activity in the wild directed towards the acquisition    ;  of  food.   It   is   an   extremely  su;ccessful predator, as attested  by ' the   incredible   range   oif  creatures it can select. Large  invertebrates,   such   as  squid,  are taken, as well as all kinds  of  fishes.  Beyond  this,  however, the wild killer whale has  attained  a certain  infamy as   ;���-.  the only dolphin to repeatedly  prey  on   other   wiarm-blooded  animals���sea   birds,   such   as  penguins and coast waterfowl;  pinnipeds,   such   as   northern  fur   seals,   harbour  seals   and  walruses; and ultimately, other  cetaceans,   including   dolphins,  beluga whales and even large  baleen   or  whalebone  whales.  Killer whales   are  social  or  gregarious animals in that they  generally   live   in   association  with   members   of   their   own  kind. A group of killer whales  is referred to as a pod, and the  pod may or may not be structured in sub-groups of rhales,  females and young. Some pods  consist of as many 7 as 40 in-  idividuals,   while   otheris   are  much smaller, numbering only  The   almost    constant   production   of   sounds   by   these  creatures   leads   biologists   to  believe that they engage in a  good deal   of   communication,  although  the  level  of  complexity   is   unknown   and -most  research; on this subject has  been) involved ym^  animals. Coop^a)ti^'yh)^aay--  iour is an established Tpart of  the killer whales, attacks oh  other marine mammals. Seals  and dolphins are often herded  together by the pod as a unit-r  but when the actual dispatch  of the victims occurs, it appears to be every whale for  itself. Supportive behaviour*  toward individuals has often  been reported- particularly by  females toward injured calves.  The > nature of social interaction by Ipller whales is a  Ifascanating ahJcl| provocative  field of study and has stimulated . several ��� different approaches to research.  Although the Tkiller whale is  how a public favourite, it was  once regarded as a menace to  life arid livelihood on the open  sea. The sight Of a pod demolishing a herd of sea lions or a  baby grey whale is not for the  squeamish, and it' was. generally assumed that a similar  fate awaited anyone who was  unfortunate enough to venture  near Orcinus orca.  Killer whales are not known  to inflict much, if any, damage tp harbour seals, which do.  they inflict considerable damage to fishermen's net; yet  Nonetheless, many fishermen  were not opposed to discouraging killer whales with guns-  and most of those members of  the general public who were  aware of the killer whale at all.  felt this probably was justified  The early sixties, however,  brought   a   slow. but 7 steadfy  This  author  recently, spent  a fascinating^  afternboh Twith  Dr. Michael Bigg stationed at  aW,Qr.rr��������������ii, ~���ki.    .,+<--+���,3~   ��� a     the PaicificYBiological7Station,  change an-public attitude, and    fa- ,Nanainai. .

If there is, I would  like to get its name and the  mailing address of an oifificer  or the bandmaster. I am compiling a list of community  bands in this province with  the idea of forming an informal organization for the exchange of ^information about  bands of this kind.  I should explain what I mean  by   community  band.   In  this  case it is a band composed of  amateur musicians,, either juniors or adults or both, and not  sponsored by or connected  with an "organized school district though members of the  band can,be members of school,  bands as well. It is a band  that ^practices once , or twice  a week, outside of school hours  and can be either a military  type band or a brass band.  Marching bands, drum and  bugle bands and fun bands are  included in this category, provided they are not sohool  bands. I have nothing against  school bands but they are in  a different class from what I  consider community bands.  So, if there is a band in your  community that fits into this  category of .- amateur mus��-  makers perhaps an officer or  the bandmaster would drop  whie a note giving the name of  the bandf of group and an address to wihich information  can be sent. It will be greatly  appreciated and I believe some  benefit to.the band can result.  Address replies to P.O. Box  46, Delta/B.C. ;  ���EDGAR DUNNING  There are a  few things you  should know about  the new rent  increase limit  THE RULES:  ��� Effective January 1,1975, residential rent  increases are limited to 10.6% of the rent  presently being charged.

The food basket  For mosj of us, Christmas  conjures up visions of groaning dinner tables, buffets and  gifts of food and beverages.  While many stomach upsets  are  the  result  of overeating  problems are related to unsafe  food handling. Here are a few  safety -tips.���  v The safest way to thaw the  Christmas turkey is in the refrigerator or in cold water in  a watertight bag or container.  Allow 5 hours per pound in the  refrigerator - or 1 hour per  pound in cold water.  The turkey may be allowed  to thaw at room temperature  if it is wrapped in a brown  paper bag. This prevents' the  outside from, thawing faster  and getting warm before the  inside thaws. Allow approximately 1 % hours per pound.  -To speed up ' the thawing  process, turkeys of 20 pounds  or more may be thatwed at room temperature for the first 12  hours, followed by immersion  in cold water for the balance  of the time. " %    '    "  Never stuff a turkey the  night before. It is not safe because moist stu_5fingTniakes an  ideal place for bacteria to grow  For safety's sake use a meat  thermometer to determine the  doneness of the turkey. Insert  the thermometer in the centre  of, the stuffing and roast the  bird until the temperature  reaches  165F.  Do not use the same utensils  or cutting board for raw turkey and cooked foods.

Johnson in provincial court Thursday.  August, a resident of the  Sechelt reservej, lhas been  charged with attempted murder in connection with a stabbing incident involving 17 year  old Clyde Lawrence Jeffries  December 6.  A preliminary hearing is set  for December 19 in Sechelt.  Richard Carl Douglas Ruth,  18, was fined "a total of $600  and suspended from driving  for 9 months when he pleaded  guilty in provincial court  Thursday to impaired driving  and refusing to taike the breath  alizer test.  ..Ruth was spotted by  Gibsons   RCMP   Nov.   23   as   his  vehicle     was stopped on the  highway, near the Peninsula  Hotel. When questioned police  described Ruth as being slow,  clumsy, and incoherent. Ruth  claimed he had nothing to  drink and became abusive  when told that he couldn.t  drive his car home. He had to  be hand-cuffed to be taken to  the Sechelt RCMP detachment  for the breathalizer test.  (Police reported that Ruth  took his shirt off and challenged one of the officers to a  fight.  "I admit that I was drinking," Ruth told Judge J.S.P.  Johnson, "I don't know what  happened, maybe . somebody  put something in my drink."  Ruth suggested that somebody  had put MDA in his drink because the same thing had happened to  a friend.

Judge Johnson told Ruth that  unless he could substantiate  his explanation the assumption  would have to be that he was  intoxicated on alcohol.  .-Crown prosecuter Archibald  noted- that Ruth had a previous record of causing a.disturbance, assulting , a police  officer, and driving with a  blood-alchol   content   of   over  .08%;    "I think you should seriously  consider detention to cool his  heels," the prosecuter told the  judge.  .."If I go to jail I have to  move out of town and things  would be totally wrecked for  me... I would rather have ten  times the fine," Ruth stated.  Judge Johnson fined Ruth  $400 on the impaired charge  and $200 for refusing to take  the breathalizer test. He was  also prohibited from driving  for 9 months.  William Vaughan was fined  $50 for consuming alcohol in  a public plate while under the  legal age.  . .Vaughan, 17, was drinking  beer in the Pender Harbor  Hotel^September 13.

"Sbirieoiie I.knewTy/ias  making candles and I wondered  what I could do, "she says." I  ididn't have any money fbr  materials so I wanted to see  what I could make from junk".  With a little help from friends, ideas, empty cans, bottle  caps, she's developed a hobby  and an enthusiasm that lifts  the common species of house-  ' hold can out of its mundane  utilitarianism and into the  realm of aesthetics and art.  Mrs., Cassin admits it's a bit  hard on the fingers (she never  wears, gloves) but a few  'scratches doesn't cut her ambitions. She's planning to create a whole scene of her birthplace- Malaysia- using cans,  colored-plastic ^bottles, and any,  other 'junk' she has laying a- \  round. The palm trees are already made.

If you're  interested in seeing a tuna tin  transformed into the bird of  paradise,* keep it in mind.  According to ancient legend,  on the night Christ was born,  trees   burst   into   bloom   and  .bore     fruit     despite    wintry  weather.  Today trees, poinsettias,  mistletoe, holly and scores of  flowers and plants have become part of the history of  this glorious season. The rea-  soiTjwe celebrate with flowers  has been passed down .through*  the ages. Many of the customs  and traditions have their origins in ancient pagan rites, yet  over the years they have taken  .on Christian implications of  deep significance.  In 1829, the, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett, brought back to  his home in South Carolina, a  central American, wild flower  with fiery red bracts. Today  this plant is as much a part of  Christmas as the pine tree,  mistletoe and holly.  There are many legends surrounding this popular Christmas plant. One tale relates  how a poor Mexican ^girl was  heartbroken because she' bad  nothing of value to offer thfe  Virgin.- In desperation she pluc  ked some scrawny roadside  weeds and placed them at the  feet of the holy statue. They  were immediately transformed  into scarlet brilliance. v  A great many other plants  have also played an important  legendary role in the holidlay  season. The Christmas rose is  supposed to have sprung from  a barren ground at. an angel's  bidding. As the years passed,  it became customary to place  these blooms at the entrances  to cottages so that no ham-  would befall the occupants.  Although these do not provide flowers at Christmas they  give a very fine display! of  their snowwhite blooms in  early April as snow recedes.  To grow them successfully in  eastern Canada a well-drained  peaty soil in-part shade is ne-  needed and a light covering  with straw should be applied  after the ground -has frozen.  .Before the birth of Chirst  holly * was worshipped by  people considered its green-  enness in the middle of the  winter as a promise of the  -_ aoj q*__d o% um%ax s.uns  nother year. Later the early  French and English hung _p-  springs of the bright berried  plant on their doors to indi  cate homes in which Chirst  dwelled. Today holly is often  used for wreaths. The,red-ber-  ried plant, worked into the circular shape, symbolizes the  hope of eternallife.  When they are delivered to  your   home   they   should   be.  given the best possible condit- .  tions that nearest approach a  greenhouse  climate.- Some pi-  i  plants are more tolerant of the  transference to' home conditions than others and some,  like poinsettias, need more exacting care. Place these in a  sunny room, ^where the temperature does not exceed 70 degrees F ahd does not drop below 60 degrees F. If you keep  these plants for any length of  time in a sunless room' the  leaves will turn yellow and the  flowers will lose their color.  Watering of all gift plants is  something that is often neglected. Christmas plants from  the florist have , reached the  peak of pevfection and the pots  are full of roots searching for  moisture and nutrients. Therefore they dry out very fast  and should be watered as soon  as you unpack them again as  soon1 as they appear dry.    "  Take care tijat your plants  are not placed near hot air, outlets, or where their leaves  touch a cold, window pane.  Keep them out of drafts,fbl-  low the rules given above and  plantwise you will have a merry Christmas.  Dog laws will  be enforced  . In an effort to ease the stray  .dog, problem, .Gibsons RCMP  plan to clamp .down and enforce the laiws of the Domestic  Animal Protection Act .legis-  lateds last summer.  ,The act basically .states that  any dog not on a leash , or  under direct control of it's  owner is-" considered a stray.  If the dog has a tag the owtner  will be notified and given verbal warning the first time, a  notice requiring a written explanation of why the dog was  loose the second time, and a  $25 fine, the third time.  ROMIP said that they will  attempt to find any stray dog's  owner before the dog is destroyed. They want to remind  all dog ownersN that dogs must  carry, icense tags attached to  the collar.  . License tags may be obtained from the village office or  from the RCMP if you live  outside the village.  _--____ai-i--tiia ����������������� ���>������-_���������!  waaaa_-iaaaai>aaaM'J��_-i_--  DON'S MAWNE SERVICES  OMC - MERCRUESER  INROARD &  STERN  DRIVE  FORD DIESEL        ' .

TAURUS���April 21 to May 21  There are some really good aspects in this sign for most persons born in Taurus. The 'humdrum worries in business matters shotdd. by now be clearing  7 up'.nicely.  GEMINI��� May 22 to June 21  This can be a veiy "touchy"  week for you. Be EXTREMELY careful in making any  sudden changes. They wori't  work out to your advantage.  There may be trouble brewing  in your daily life that you are  entirely unaware of.  CANCER��� June 22 to July 22  Some "fuzzy" thinking at this  time could mix you all up, in  planning for the future. Things  are generally good in your  chart, but you may overlook  them.  LEO��� July 23 to August 23:  This is a good time for you  astrologically but watch your  step! You could very easily  stumble onto something good,  but you could just as easily dis  miss it as being unimportant  to your future security.  VIRGO��� August 24 to Sept. 22  A reminiscing of the past, will  do you much goqc. during the  coming week., If you ��� thinjk  back in your life constructively  at this time, you'll do much to  eliminate irritations that are  bothering you.  LIBRA��� Sept. 23  to Oct.  23  This is a good period for Libra;  Lots of activity around you  may tend to ''get you do|wn" 7  but be level headed and think,  before you act. Careful consideration of all aspects'in business dealings will do a great  deal.  SCORPIO��� Oct. 24 to Nov. 122  Conditions in   the   zodiac  are  beginning to  favour  you.  B��f  very cautious at this time that,  you don't ge carried away by  some romantic interlude.  SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 Dec 21  The coming week coud prove  to be most antagonistic to your  normally clear thinking. Whatever you do, don't, let this up-������  set. your plans. You're "ori the  right track" but you might b)e  going the (wrong way. Y  CAPRICORN Dec. 22 Jan. 20  The chart for Capricorn is  much the same as that of  Cancer, with the big exception  that you are given the help of  the planet Venus. Keep your  mind open.  AQUARIUS Jan. 21 to Feb.. 18  Your o-iart is unquestionably  good, but be careful. If you are  involved in an accident of any  sort, you will escape probably  unscathed, but the same accident could cause untold grief  to .another.  PISCES���- Feb. 19 to March 20  The best advice for persons  born in this sign, is to watch  out that your temper doesn't  get he best of you. You will  shortly be 'going through a  "new cycle" in your life. Bt  wise, and steer away from aggressive action.- 7  TRANSPORT ���Y_____"  DOUBLE R  TRUCKING LTD.

They took an early lead but  jwe tied them up in the t__ic|di  quarter. Everyone on our team  was ccoiing. Unfortunately so  was the other team and they  won 49-40.  On Saturday afternoon we  played the home team. This  time we took the lead. In the  second quarter, they put on the  pressure and caught up. Then  .they gradually took the lead  to win 58-51.  By MARL.A SCHNEIDER  Because we have no gym at  Elphinstone, most of our games  are at other schools. But on  Saturday, Dec. 14, Pender Harbour let us use their gym for  a home game against Pemberton.  Early in the first quarter  we found the Pemberton girls  quite aggressive and at times  somewhat scrappy.  Unfortunately for us, their  aggressiveness defeated us.  Cindy Kurucz played a good  game as did Elaine Gant and  Paon Benner. Our high scorer  was Gjwenda Havies.  We thank Pender Harbour  for letting us use their gym.  On Wednesday, Dec. 11, Elphie's Senior Girls in Vancouver playedl an intermediate  team from Carson Graham.  Carson took an early lead, but  soon our girls; took over, de-  featii^g them soundly 39-18.  High scorers were Gail Blomgren and Gwenda Havies. Barb  Dew had some really great  ^breakaways and Pam Benner  played a very good game.7  December 8:  Division 7:  T-men 1, Warriors 3  Nomads 5, Douglas Flyers 0.  .

Under tlhe Community Recreational Facilities Fund, administered! by '.the department  of recreation and conservation,  the provincial government provides a grant of one-third the  cost of financing, community  recreation facilities sponsored  by a municipality or non-profit  cultural, ethnic or religious  group. -  To date 27.8 million dollars  in grants have been allocated.  The money is going to over 400  projects in 158 different communities'. Btdk of the funding  has been for ice rinks, curling  rinks, swimming pools and  community halls.  However, the scope of the  funding is actually .much, broad  er with grants given to such  diverse projects as a horseshoe  pitching club in Pbrt Alberni,  a brownie hut at Milne Land^-  ing; a gas fired' kiln and shed  for the Powell River Fine Arts  Association; a library and' archives for the Italian community in Trail; a movie theatre in  Salmon Arm which is owned  and operated by the local Community Association to raise  recreational  funds;  Metmlbers of the school board  are upset because a sohool bus  driver has taken disciplinary  actions which "are not according to policy."  Trustee Joe Horvath told the  board Thursday that four students were recently ordered  off a home-bound school bus  because one of them was suspected of having lit a cigarette  in the back of the hns.  Without mentioning' an y  names Horvath said that the  driver had seen someone in-the  back light a cigarette and by  the time he stopped the bus  and walked to the rear the  cigarette had been put out.  When no one confessed he  promptly turned the bus  around, drove a few miles back  to Elphinstone and told four  students to get out, - one of  whom stayed..  The three students who were  put off the bus live in the Dar .  vis Bay-Selma Park area.  "He's an adult," remarked  one of the trustees, referring  to the bus driver involved,  "he should behave like an adult ... he had to make a big  harrang out of it."  Horvath said that he realized  some kids abuse the bus but  of there were any problem the  parents should be phoned. "If  you treat the kidis fairly they  will treat you the same way,"  he stated.  Horvath told the board that  he took the liberty of phoning  George Hopkins. Mr. Hopkins  is owner and manager'of Seohelt school bus service.  Hopkins claims that there is  no co-operation between himself and the school board and  that both, buses and drivers  were "used and abused."  A meeting' between the  school board and Mr. Hopkins  is scheduled for next week.  Smiles film  gives delight  (By ALLAN CRANE)  Most- of the audience for  Smiles of a Summer's Night  found the film quite delightful.  A-teir ' associatingY'YBergtoan  with such deyaistatirig films as  Shame, Hour of the Wolf and  so on, with Wild Strawberries  in rather lighter vein. I found  it a surprising, and gratifying  experience to share Yin much  laughter over a film of Ingmar  Bergman's.  Iri two or three places, there  was an inexplicable lack of  sub-titles, and one could generally have wished for fluency  in Swedish to have derived  even more pleasure out of this  most enjoyable filim.   .  Enjoyment may not be quite  the right -word for the strange  motion picture which the Film  Society is screening tonight. El  Topo is classified as Restrxct-  - ed and carries the director's  warning "Extreme brutality  throughout."  El Topo was written by-Alexandre Jodorbwsky who directs the film and plays the  leading role. If it could be cast  into any mould it would have  to be as a Mexican Western but  its scenario encompasses  whores, freaks and lesbians in  the manner of Fellini's later  films./ The film was" to have  been Mexico's entry in the 1973  Cannes Festival, but the government forbade this.  El Topo is the ITilm Society's  last presentation of the year.  The next, Belle du Jour, will  play on Wed., Jan. 8. It is also  the last presentation at the  Twilight Theatre before the  Christmas break, and no moviesTwill be screened there from  Dec. 19 until Dec. 26 when the  regular program recommences  with the MGM compilation  That's Entertainment, for a six  day engagement.  This column will next appear in the January 8 editions  of the local press. In the meantime, to all of yttu who love  film, Season's Greetings.  FROZEN LOCKS  Motorists can avoid the irritation of finding frozen locks  on car doors this winter by  placing an adhesive bandage or  plastic tape ^over the the keyhole, says the B.C. Automobile  Association. To open a frozen  lock, insert a key which has  been heated by a match or  lighter, or squirt some de-icer  into the lock.  FW_W��ie*t3t3W**_3C^  May we extend to each  and every one of you our  very best wishes for your  happiness this Holiday Season and all through the  New Tear. Please accept  grateful thanks for your  past patronage; may we be  N of service to you again and  for many years ��� to come.  Miss Bee's, 'Sechelt.
