 Provincial Library,  VictorIat S. C.  The Sunshine  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 28,    Number 12-, March 26, 1975.  Freedom key   for  Dr. Inglis  More .than 350 persons attended the public event honoring Dr. and Mrs. Hugh Inglis  in Gibsons Legion Hall Sunday  afternoon. The doctor and his  wife were central figures ait a  head table with other, members  of the faJmily to their left and  right.  Mayor ^arry ^Labonte^mas-  ter of ceremonies, Ysupported  by members of'Gibsons council, offered the dtoctor and his  wife words of commendation  for their devoted- service for  many, many years, in a community which at times extended fiofm Port Mellon to Pender Harbour. Les Peterson prepared the commendation  speech.  The. hall, with more than 20  (tables seating five or six persons, w_s well filled when the  mayor opened the event with  well-chosen remarks pointing  out the reason why the doctor  and his wife deserved the honor being bestofwed on.them.  Aid. Stuart K. Meytcalfe on  behalf of council during the  presentation o! gifts to the  couple presented the doctor  with a "key to the city," a  beautifully carved key by Hans  Peterson made from wood.out  *,o_Uone~ of the^<oiigittai^p��lfeJV  part of Gibsons Landing original wharf."  During the two hour event  friends and members of the  public kept coming and going  during the proceedings. Most  ���signed a guest book provided  by the Kiwanis club and presented to the couple ait the  conclusion of the event.  Other presentations were  made by Frank'West, Regional  Hospital Board chairman; John  Wilson for the Legion; C. B.  Carby for the Kinsmen Club;  Ray Chalmlberlin. for the Kiwanis club; Mrs. Charles Long-  supports dog pound  Gibsons counicil "will batek  the efforts of the SPCA to establish a dog pound and catcher on the Sunshine Coast  because as acting Mayor Kurt  Hoehne said, "we are all  involved in the same problem."  The SPCA delegation appear  . ed before council last week in  an effort to make political bodies aware of the acuite stray  dog problem. The same group  ejppeared before Regional  Board members last mcxnitih.  and suggestions were made  at that time to initiate a. pro-  gratm that would see the board  handling the finances and the  SPCA taking care of the dog  catching and! mainitainanlce of  the pound.  A spokesman for the SPCA  group,.Bobs Wells, told council  last week that the dog catching  operation would be run under  -the auspices of "the Regional  Board with the two* villages  contracting.  He suggested the pound  wouldi be centralyi located with  <the~ dog catcher spending more  time in Gibons because of the  larger population here.  The SPCA brief to council  suggested $1.50 per capita  grant from the villages to contribute to .the operation. It was  estimated that buildings and  a vehicle would cost another  $15,000. -  Alderman Kurt Hoehne said  he was in agreement with the  group's proposals, but "council  has already taken steps.and  what is holding lis back are  the rules and regulations of  thev SPCA" Hoehne said the  village has been considering a  pound in the Henry and Reed  Road  area.  Alderman Jim Metzler felt  the SPCA could best handle  the growing problem because  of their knowledge and exper  tise in that area. He suggested  that council support- the SPCA _ proposal., in principle.  This does not commit the  village financially.     .  The SPCA group also received support from Sechelt  council last Wednesday night  The Sechelt aldermen felt the  enforcement of strict regulations was long overdue because last year the village sold  only 15 dogs licenses.  Veterinarian Dr. Pat Perry,  who is with the SPCA group in  an advisory capacity, said the  Sechelt Indian band was also  ap_>roa|ched to take part in the  stray dog clean-up but they  favored, setting up their own  pound.  Perry said the Indian band  was only interested in obtaining information and did not  want to become part of the  SPCA organization.  The SPtCA group plans a  meeting in early April with an  SPCA official from Vancouver  to discuss details sulch as  license and pound fees.  ley for Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary; Floyd McGregor for "the  Lions Club; Mrs. Labonte for  the village, and Aid. Metcalfe,  cake expressed the feelings of  the carved key.  ' The,, lions club detebrated  the - community with these  words neaitly iced "Thank :fr��u.  ,Dr.-iInglis for- many; years'\*f *  service to our community. We  wish you a happy retirement."  The mayor in his opening  remarks presented the doctor  with a scroll wihich offered the  thanks of the community for  the untiring and devoted service he had given the community for a lengthy period of  years.  Cm behalf of himself, wife  and faimily, Dr. Inglis thanked  eveiybodyTfor an event which  he said was ovenwihelming altogether. :,-���'���- Y  At _ the young family table  Twere' Daphne Yortk, daughter;  Fred, a son* nieces Wendy,  Yvonne and Nancy and nephew Colin Godwin.

At  a meeting held Sunday night,  there was a good turnout of  volunteers but the committee  still has no coordinator. Bruce  Wilson, assisted by Tom Stenner, has volunteered to take  the job temporarily, for a. period of one month.  The committee decided to try  a somewhat less ambitious project this year, for two days  only, Friday and (Saturday,  August 8 and 9.  The nexit committee meeting will be on Sunday, April  6, and anyone who desires to  work on the event in. any capacity will be welcome.  PENDER HARBOUR VOTE  Pender Harbour residents  voted overwhelmingly in favor  of a health centre in Saturday's  referendum.  The vote, 592 - 57 provides  the go-ahead for a $227,000 clinic to include two beds for observation and emergency purposes.  The area has been without  medical facilities since 1965  when.

Henry road  home burns  A fire early Tuesday morning totally destroyed the Henry  Road home ow-ied by Gordon  Day.  Gibsons Fire Chief Dick Ranniger said the house was totally engulfed in flames when  the fire department arrived  about"2:45 a.m; The cause of  the blaze is not known. No one  was home at the time.  The alarm was turned in by  neighbor Mike Kitson.  A later alarm at 6:40 a.m.  was turned in by someone  heading to an early ferry at  Langdale. At that early hour  the remains of the house were  still smouldering.  sSjLs������  Blood needed  Every working day in Canada, the Red Cross collects an  average of one unit of blood  every 15 seconds. Iri British  Columbia, that means a total  df -107,QOO units of blood, were  collected last year.  That may sound like an awful lot of blood, but what really  counts, according to Red Cross  .officials, is that it helped to  save the lives of 34,000 patients  in B.C. hospitals.  The   next  Red   Cross blood  clinic in Gibsons will be held  at the Health Centre, Friday,  April 25, frotrh 1 to 5 and 6:30  to 8:30 p.m.; and in Pender  Harbour, at Madeira Park  School, Thursday, April 24,  from 6 to 9 p.m.  Revisions to  improve new  zoning bylaw ��|  ISechelt planner Doug Roy,  says the new Sethelt zoning  bylaw7 is adequatefor:,today:  but still has shbrtcomingsY  The bylaw, which was; before  a _public 7 meetingY1^7-?_weefc;-.  will gbZback into "a -ct^nffictrtiSB  meeting for minor revisions  and will then be adopted by  council. '  "The bylaw is fairly adequate but it will need constant revisions," Roy told coun  cir last week.  7 He suggested adoption of the  bylaw with some minOr rev-  sions but felt the "hastily written" community planning bylaw should be given a revised  second reading.  The community planning bylaw aims to express long term  community planning goals for  the village.  Alderman Noum Watson,  head of the planning committee, said he realized the community planning bylaw was  inadequate but it was given a  hasty second reading to get it  into last week's public hearing. He said it would be given  a revised second reading.  The public hearing on the  zoning bylaw and community  planning bylaw was held  March 11 in the old Legion  hall but most of the discussion  centered around a proposed  marina on Porposise Bay.  attacks owner  Leo Hubel, owner and operator of the Cedars Inn was robbed at,' gunpoint of about $92  late Saturday night RCMP  described the suspect as being  about 5' 10" in height. He wore  a black mask.  Police believe a"vehicle de^  gcribed as a dark pickup majy  be connected with the holdup.  Mr. Hubel said he had just  . come out of his side door and  was walking across the parking  lot towards his house T^eii a  man appeared from behind his  Van and ordered him to hand  over the money, pointing what  appeared.to be a small rifle  at him.  "I threw -the money bag at  him and started to yell and he  ran off through the back." ;  Police found part of the  money scattered behind the  van and Sunday morning a police dog uncovered one of the  money bags buried! in dirt  about 200 yards behind the  Cedars Inn. Y  [ Gibsons RCMP are asking  forl public, assistance in finding^ v/the armed man.

At  the end of 1945 the official index of the cost of living was  only a little more than one percent higher than at the  beginning of the year and the index of Wholesale prices  had increased even less.  From the inception of the price ceiling late in 1941,.  the cost of living had been held to an increase of four percent and the wholesale price level to one of 10 percent.  Over the whole period from the beginning of the war to  the end of 1944, the cost of living index ihad risen by less  than 20 percent and wholesale prices, which were abnormally low just prior to the war, by about 44 percent.  Today's record shows that from 1963 to February,  1975 an economic index figure of 100 has increased to  175 based on the continued struggle by labor to keep up  with prices based on the continued leap-frogging of labor  costs striving to keep up with prices for necessities.  This has cost the public in Canada more than it would cost  to maintain levels which would be created through controls.  Most people believe controls would work. However  our experts "know better." These experts should explain  . "'Why not?"  Prophetic quality!  On July 17, 1971, Josh Freed of the Montreal Star in  a Perception Canada series produced an article headed  A New World in Harmony with Nature. He-was explore  iiig the effects on Canadian life of the Opportunity for  Youth programs which offered cash grants so applicants  could set themselves up in life.  He wrote that government grants had enabled young  craftsmen and artists to turn their day-to-day occupations into self-supporting professions, v  Continuing Mr. Freed wrote:  "Trie Sechelt Peninsula on the Sunshine Coast, long  a lair of artists and authors, has become the site of a  youthful community that is hoping to find a constructive and comfortable alternative to the urban life of  technological man.  "The people come from many places ��� from the  shores of Newfoundland to the, southern tip of California, ��� and they have determined tCf develop a self-sufficient agrarian society, living in harmony with the rest  of the world.  - "Unlike much of Canada's youth, these people are  not willing to live off either the toil of their forefathers  ���or the natural vegetation that the land provides.  "Instead, they spend the majority of their waking  hours cultivating land, harvesting crops and raising  enough assorted animals to stock a minor menagerie."  What had most appeal to the 1975 reader of the  Montreal Star 1971 cippirig was the first paragraph. Mr.  Freed could not have been any more prophetic. He wrote:  "For a youthful community on the Sunshine Coast  of Mainland British Columbia a dream has just begun  and the end is nowhere in sight."  More than three years have passed since that article was written. Perhaps if Mr. Freed visited the Sunshine Coast today he could conclude his opening paragraph contained prophetic quality. '  5 to 25 years ago  Five Years Ago  Gibsons United Church has  received information the Win-  xuifred Dbherty $10,000 bequeath will be tax free.  The provincial government  ^announces a minumum wage  ��of $1.50 per hour starting May  4.  10 Years Ago  Gibsons council continues to  wonder what it can do to protect the graves at the old Gib-  <sons Memorial church site.  iSt. Mary's Hospital Co-ordinating committee held its first  ���meeting. Six auxiliaries were  ^represented.  15 Years Ago  The Routledge Gravel Ltd.,  proposal for a gravel project  in Gower Point area was  strongly opposed at a public  meeting.

Engineers expect to have  (plans ready by March 31 for  construction of the Clowhom  electrical plant.  A $282,000 school bylaw includes $7,500 for schools on  Gambier and Nelson Island  plus schools for Gibsons, Madeira Park, Roberts Creek, and  Egmont.  The Atmospheric Environment {Service (AES) is among  the forerunners of federal  government departments to implement the Canadian government decision to join the rest  of the world using the metric  system;  ���  ..'  It's no April Fool's trick, but  whether March, .1975 goes out  like a lion or a lamb, April 1st  will bring with it a significant  change in -Canada's weather  reports. On that day, the Fahrenheit sfcale will effectively  pass from use to be replaced  in actual and forecast temperature reports by the simpler  Celsius scale.  On'   th!e   Fahrenheit   scale>  water boils at 212F,  while a  summer's day with a temper-  .   arture of 100F could well be described   as   sweltering.   After  April  1st,   100C  will indicate  the boiling point of water. A.  hot summer's day. will have a  temperature in the 30s. Further  down the Celsius scale, water  freezes at 0C.  This simpler scale will entail a change in the temperature ranges used in public  forecasts: instead of the previous 5-10 degree interval,  there will be a 2-5 interval, so  that a present forefcast of "in  the upper sixties" would read  18-20C. It is. interesting to note  that in the Celsius scale, the  yearly temperature range in  Canada is generally symmetrical, with only rare or record  temperatures falling outside  the 40C to 40C bracket.  A temperature of-40C is pro- .  perlyl described as minus  40  degrees   Celsius   rather   than  as 40 degrees below zero.  Anders Celsius, a Swedish  astronomer (1701-1744), who de  cided the logical way to approach the measuring of temperature was to divide the tem-  Iperature differjeniqe betjween  . the freezing point of water  and its boiling point into 100  equal units, or degrees. The  old name centigrade now becomes   Celsius,   in  his honor.  Millimetres of rain and centimetres of snow are familiar  terms to people the world over  and beginning September 1,  they will also be used routinely in Canada in ally actual reports, as well as the forecast  of precipitation amounts.  On that day, AES will begin  to. provide its precipitation  measurements in metric units.  Because very few people can  readily interpret figures into :  actual on-<the-gr6und amounts,,  the usage of such subjective  terms as heavy or light in the  public forecast will be continued-  Legal  Expansion  Memlbers attending the provincial council meeting of the  B.C. Branch of the Canadian  Bar Association have readily  agreed there is a definite need  for expanding legal services in  B.C. The Bar recognizes the  need for improved systems for  the delivery of legal services  and, in fact has urged a number of reforms in recent years  branch chairman Peter Manson  says.

All it means is that the Federal  Government has increased your personal  exemptions to coincide with the rise in the  Consumer Price Index. The new personal  exemptions are printed on your income tax  form. Guide Item 41 tells you more about it.  Well, those are just some of the areas s  where it pays to follow your Tax Guide and,  of course, there are others. The Federal  Political Contribution Tax Credit is new as  well.

Remember to check some of the other  items listed in the Tax Guide which may  entitle you to claim deductions, such as  Child Care Expenses. Guide Item 33 tells  you all about that one.

A FROST-FREE refrigerator  uses 50% more energy than a   -  standard model. A crushed-ice  dispenser is a big energy drain.  And a self-cleaning oven uses 20%  more energy than a standard model.  .Ask yourself how many of these  extras you really need.  When you go shopping for a new appliance���refrigerator, dishwasher, range, dryer,  washing machine���look beyond die price tag.  What's the energy cost of running it? Often the  better-built, more expensive model is also  more energy-efficient. A better buy in the  long-run.  Five ways to save  on home heating  HEATING is the biggest item in a family's  home energy budget Here are a few simple  ways to save:  Lower the thermostat  Each degree over 68 adds about  2Vs.% to your heating bill. By  dropping the setting from 72 to  70 you can save 5%. Dropping it  from 72 to 68 will save 10%���about $30 a year.  It helps to lower the temperature further  at night, and when you're going to be away  from home for a few d.iv<;  Check your furnace filler.  A dusty, clogged filter forces  the system to work harder, and __  wastes energy. Inspect it every "  30 days. (The book shows you  how.) An annual or semi-annual  furnace cleaning can save you  another 10^.  How's your insulation?  Many Canadian homes have  inadequate insulation. Ceilings  should have 6"or more of mineral wool or glass fibre insulation. Walicavities should be  completely filled. Basement  walls should also be protected  to 2 feet below grade level. To avoid fire  hazards, don't use foamed plastic insulation in  exposed applications.  Use storms and weather-stripping  Storm windows and doors will  reduce heat loss in winter by up  to 15%.  Weather-stripping is a must,  A tiny gap of V* along the  bottom of a door is the same as  having a 9 square-inch hole in          your living-room wall. 100 ways to save  energy and money in the home explains how to  weather-strip joints and caulk the frames of  windows and doors.  Let the sunshine in.  Energy from the sun is free, so it  makes sense to use as much of it  as we can. In the winter, open  curtains and drapes during the bright part of  the day and close them at night, for their  insulating value. In summer, do the opposite.  Drip, drip, drip, drip  ONE DRIP per second from a leaky hot  water faucet or shower-head sends about 175  gallons a month down the drain. That's money  down the drain. You can probably fix it yourself with a new washer and a few minutes  work.  Be sure the size of your water heater  matches your needs. Don't set it for more than  140 degrees, and turn if off when you go on  vacation.  Have you tried a cold-water wash for  clothes? It usually works just as well. Remember, too, that your average shower bath uses  only 5 gallons of hot water, while a tub bath  takes almost 10 gallons.  Could you use an  extra $100 a year?  These are just a few of the many, many ways  to save energy and money in the home.  It's well worth doing. By making modest  energy savings now, we can improve our  environment and way of life far into the future.

Council  voted in favour  of  joining after Alderman Norm  , Watson reported the Regional  Board  is   looking  for village  support so that a respresent-  ative can be appointed to the  recreation commission and also  park areas such as Cooper's  Green could be acquired.  Watson explained the cost of  the  two   functions   would   be.  borne by the Regional District  and    member    municipalities.  The cost to the municipalities  is not to exjceed one-tenth of  a mill.  The Regional Board decided  to adcipt the functions of recreation and recreational parks  at, an earlier meeting but resolutions , were delayed until  committments were obtained  from Gibsons and Sechelt.    ;  Gibsons council did hot join  the - functions because there  was no indication of what costs  were in actual dollar value.

Stumping or ditching powder, dynamite, eiectric  or   regular   caps,   prima-cord, Coast News March, 261975     5  MIKE WILSON is the Sunshine Coast's hew public health  inspector. He will be based in  Gibsons with an pcBfice in the  Garibaldi Health Unit.  Mike has just concluded 26  years in the Canadian Armed  Forces, Winnipeg; as a sta__f  officer, medical training.  He and his family look forward to residing in Gibsons,  buftj he is having a problem  in finding a suitable house to  ' rent. 7  To improve road  rnhe long, winding, pot-hole  riddled road to the Sunshine  Coast Arena is scheduled for  improvements.  Sechelt Alderman Dennis  Shuttleworth, head of the road  committee, told council Wednesday night that "we have to  start doing this road properly"  and the first thing that had to  be done was the ditching.  JShuttlewortfh said he talked  to Highways Department district superintendent n, Tuicker  Forsyth who felt that putting  ;n>pre gravel on .the road was  just a waste of money. Shuttle-  worth said the village was already spending too much money on gravel.   '        , >  The roads committee chairman also recommended the arena road,paving be completed.  He indicated that the existing  road-bed would have tp be  ripped out and a new one laid  before paving could commence.  Although Alderman Shuttle-  worth could not give an estimate on costs, council voted in  favor of the recommendations  because roads are a priority  0n this year's budget.  51 steps tiring lo  B.C. school trustees are ."at-.'  tempting to do aiway with' some  of the 51 steps that districts  mu^t go through in order to  provide more classrooms.  In a brief to be presented to  the Minister of Education^ the  British Columbia IStehool Trustees Association (BOSTA) sug-  gets ways for speeding up this  process in order to stop some  -pupils haying to attend school  on a shift basis and to ensure  ^.hat construction takes place  before inflation invalidates  cost estimates.  BClSITA President Eileen  Madson commented: "At present it is ncess'ary for a board  needing new buildings to go  through an incredibly involved  and time-consuming exercise.  Much of the procedure was inherited by the present government. It is still in eiffect."  "Our main concerns, whaich  are expressed in the brief,"  Mrs. Madson continued, "are  this undue length of time (up  to two or three years) it takes  t0 provide classrooms, inadequate budgets for renovations  and fire prevention, and the  fact that the government's curt  Letters to Editor  rent planning standards are not  relevant to its other programs  such as the lower pupil-teacher  ratio."  The BCSTA brief requests "a  complete overhaul of the highly centralized system of approvals. . .to give school boards  greater authority and responsibility in line with government  policy." In the meantime, the  brief suggests steps that could  be taken immediately wihich  would save months oh each  project.

A. Least exjpensivie vitamin C  food's are frozen or canned  orange juice, vitaminized apple juice, canned tomaitoies,  tomato juice, raw cabbage and  raw turnip. Cabbage and turnip are good sources only when  eaten raiw because cookilnig  greatly destroys their Vitamin  C content. :'       ���>  Q. Brown eggs are often  imort expensive tjhan wteite  ones. Are they better for my  family to eat?  A. The' colour of the egg  shell, brown or wihite, does not  affect the food value of the egg  inside it, so do 'not pay extoa  for the colour of the shell.  Q. What is the cheapest w_y  to buy cheese?  A. Natural cheeses, such as  cheddar, are the better buy  for nutrition and economy as  compared to any of the proces  sed cheeses because of the high  er protein content and lower  water content of the natural  cheeses. Choose bulk or store-  wnapped domestic cheeses in  preference to the more ex-  upetnsive imported or individually wrapped, slices.  Irregularities  not harmful?  Constipation is not irregularity as some advertisements  coyly claim.  A daily bowel movement at  fixed times is not necessary  to good health. Missing a move  ment for a few days is not  harmful. There is considerable  variation in the frequency and  regularity of bowel movements  among different persons, and  even the same person at different times.  There are many laxatives  available to relieve oonstipaT  tion, and these have moved  Health and Welfare Canada to  publish a pamphlet called "The  Laxative Habit"  It describes the dangers of  excessive laxative use,1 the different classes of laxatives, and  some hints for occasional laxative use.

Zambians  heat their homes with charcoal  and wood fires, and when food  is scarce, men get the larger  share and children the least.  Therefore many children die in  the cold month of June.  (There are six languages spoken irt Zambia. Anyone going  to work there requires a know-  lege of them.  While the cities are progres  sing, the rural areas are much  as they were loner ago.

(By DON LOCKSTEAD)  Ocean Falls has once again  been the object of attention  during the current sitting of  the Legislature. The Budget  Speech presented by Premier  Barrett indicated continued  support for the Ocean Falls  comtounity. During the Budget  Debate I also expressed the  government's determination to  keep Ocean Falls both alive  and well.  As in the case of the Cancel  operation in Northwest B.C.,  the government has shown responsibility by its actiofct in  Ocean Falls. Not only have jobs  been saved and created in a  period of unemployment, but  the social services such as  health and education have been  maintained.  The idea of purposefully  abandoning an entire community with basic industry, small  businesses, schools, and health  fateilities was, and is, completely unacceptable to this government. We have a committment  to Ocean Falls that goes beyond the ups and downs of the  marketplace.  The . opposition parties, on  the other hand, have shown no  ��� concern for the welfare and  survival of Ocean Falls. They  have adopted a negative attitude towards our efforts to  maintain and improve the com  munity of Ocean Falls. In a recent TV interview the leader of  the opposition stated he would  close Ocean Falls because not  enough prpfit could be realized.  As the government, we have  displayed responsibility in preserving the industry and jobs  of Ocean Falls. The economic  future is secure for Ocean  Falls. Co-operation between  provincial and municipal gov-  erniments has brougth results  to residents. I feel the efforts  of our government and the determination of local residents  have brought success to the  ' Ocean Falls community.  FOR T.V.

You might just find  the one you have been looking  for for many years.  Don't be  impetuous, just let events carry you along.  TAURUS April 21 to May 21  A temporary set-back in business matters is nothing to get  "up in ������ the ' air" about. Minor  problems will soon be solved  and you can look foward to a  very sound proposition which  might even be a corneristone  of your life. Trust in others.  GEMINI May  22 to  Jane 21  You may run into an idea some  time during this week that  could work out very well in a  business venture of some description. Get some expert advice, however, before starting  out on your own.  CANCER June 22 lo July 22  You're probably "pulling out"  of some situation that just  might have caused you a little  trouble. The stars are now beginning to shine in your favour  again. All will be well.  LEO   July   23   to   August   23  A strong "tie-in" with Sagittarius and Aries individuals at  this time might lead to some  pretty exciting times ahead.  Make certain however, that  you get your share of the reward... .'   >  VIRGO August 24 to Sept. 22  All persons born in the sign of  Virgo will be under beneficial  guidance of Jupiter the "great  benefactor" for some time to  come. Next year may mark a  "ihigihlight" in your career.  LIBRA Sept. 23 to October 23  Some long-range "changes" are  working on your behalf at the  present time. You may be approached by someone who can  give you much help in your  business career. Judge carefully!  SCORPIO Oct 24 to Nov. 22  A tendency to "jump" from  one thing to another should be  watched with care. Things are  good in your chart right now,  and it might be the "wrong  move" unless you get exipert  advice.   ���,-.    ���  SAGITTARIUS Nov. 23 Dec. 21  News may reach you sometime  this week of a most important  decision regarding some business matter, probably relating  to real estate. If you are puzzled, seek the advice of a good  lawyer. Be cautious and judge  carefully!  CAPRICORN Dec. 22 Jan. 20  A nice planetary "balance is  now favouring your horoscope.  A few minor adjustments in  your plans may become necessary but you have the intuition  to work things out satisfacto.*-  ily.  AQUARIUS Jan. 21 to Feb. 18  This is a good time to make  plans for a lot of activity a-  round "home base" that should  be starting sometime next  week. Check all details with  care as you may be too busy  to attend'to them next month.  PISCES Feb.  18 to March 20  About this time last month  your business activties were in  the spotlight. Right now, it's  social funictions that are highlighted and most favourably  aspected. Have fun, and relax  a little.  (Copyright 1975 by Trent Varro. All rights reserved.)

Out of 33  games, only three were lost  and out of four tournaments  only one escaped them. And to  top off the year, the team came  in third in the B.C. finals.  The year's high point scorers  were: Wayne Smith, 609; Frank  Havies; 607; Leigh Wolverton  594. Dave Neumann 567, and  Kerry Bjornson 499.  The team's averages were:  Name Shot   FJSht.  Av.

Under a  blue sky and reasonable field  conditions Gibsons was able to  use its running game and came  away with a 32-0 victory.  Gibsons started strong and  a* the ten minute mark. Geoff  Madoe- Jones broke through  four would-be tacklers into the  clear. He put a fine move on  the Cajps would-be tackier and  broke into the clear. Next he  put a fine move on the Caps  fullback and went in for the  try. The convert was wide.  iShortly after that Jones  again broke through the Caps  three-line and ran in for the  try. Larry Knowles added the  convert.  Due to the illness of regular  scrum-half Ken Johnson, Gibsons recruited Pat Gaines for  the game. Gaines had no practice, but he filled in like a regular. On Gibsons third try he  passed the ball out to the three"  line and then took .a return  pass and moved own the field.  At the ten yard line he passed  tp fullback Bob Crosby who  had joined the three-line. Crosby moved past the opposing  fullback and into the end zone  for a try. The convert was  kicked by Larry Knowles.  Tlie next try came when  Gaines took the ball from a  set scrum and ran through the  Caps before passing to Alex  Skytte who ran over Caps fullback and in for the try.  Knowles again kicked the convert.  Fullback Bob Crosby scored  his second try of. the game after Tony Graydon had broken  through Caps line before passing to Crosby who scored. Robert Baba added the convert.  Gibsons final try fittingly  went to scrum half Gaines. Af- .  ter a five-yard scrum Gaines  took the ball to the short side  and dove into the end zone for  the score.  Gibsons next game is against  the Trojans at Gordon Park in  two weeks.  YBhis was the. first year the  Cougars won the Tri-Zone finals, one of the toughest zones  in B.C. It was accomplished  through much hard work by  the players and coach.  It is amazing that the Cougars were able to play at all  this year in view of the poor  facilities coach Gary Gray had  to work with. Mr. Gray's coaching expertise combined with  player desire made a winning  team.  Many thanks come from the  team, coach and managers to  all the good people who donated funds to the Cougars, for  without them the Provincial  Finals would have been very  expensive.  ISO much for the past. Next  year, when the- nelw gymnasium will be completed, the  Cougars can look forward to  another  successful  season.
