ONE OF the recent gilts which caime to  Canon Greene is <niit;e unique and has a  very interesting story behind it.  Several -weeks, ago, Canon Greene -wrote  to Mr. H. R. MacMillan reminding him that  tin the yeasn, ISC'S," iMjr, Ma-cM-SBan had  neglected to give $10.00 to the ftev. Captain  Jahn ArnJe of the Columbia Coast Mission  for services- rendered. Canon Greene said  in his letter that he was not able to reckon  how much that would represent if -payment  were made itoday because he had no cem-  .pu'ter-'at hand. H-j suggested to Mr. Mac-  Milan that payment might be made to"the  Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens Housing Society to assist with the new homes for older  folks.  By return mail,, Mr. MacMillan replied  that he was very sorry for his oversight and  while he "was not too well and had a sore  thumb, he was still able to write a cheque  for $200.CO which he hoped would wipe out  the long standing negligence and assist in a1  ���good cause.  Mr, Ben Finlh, the Treasurer, reports  that gifts-are coming in regularly, many  ���from those who have given before, ito honour  Canon Greene on his 80th birthday and in  appreciation of his work for the Senior  Citizens' Hemes. -  All citizens seem to -feel that any one  who .has ser-ved their fellow men so well  and for -as long as'fifty-'five years should  receive Itihe appreciation of the public.  Hence it is not surprising ,<that many contributions to the Sunshine Coast Senior  Citizens Housing Society are being received.  , It is interesting to note that 'gifts have  come from people whom Canon Greene  married, -from families in which he 'took a  funeral, firom loggers whom he befriended  along the coast as well as from others who  gave just in a-ppreclaitioni o!f his community  interest. A Ifeiw gifts.'haive come from lighthouse Keepers where Canon Greene used to  put in with his boat and bring a message of  friendship. Mr. Ben Firth, the Treasurer  of the "Housing Society would appreciate it  if donors would make at note in some way  of any unique idea of -their contact with  Canon Greene so that these might be com-  piled and expressed' at the occasion of  honouring him.

^osi't throw soft^ boiled eggs
ONE TI'ME when we were children a
-. cousin "picked up a soft-boiled egg at>
breakfast and hove it at my sister. There
was some kind of a difference of, opinion
at the moment, and my cousin thought this
was' an excellent way to resolve -it.. The
egg sailed across the table and,my sister
bobbed her head to one side ; so the egg
l-the. egg drip, off, "partly onto some geraniums in their pots on the window stand,* and
•jpartly onto, the tfloor, . * ^
' ; I remember having a> -momentary won-
. der. as  to how Mother should' (proceed.

sun was streaming in to anake-evexything ^ren would never-never heave an egg un-
congemal and co^. The egg then .exploded, der such circumstances, ifor two reasons.
: and created what may loosely be termed - First; we had-been brought "up not to; and
a mess. ., •       sfecotidly, we would be - very sorry\ after-
. We had the -regular lace curtains of the Wards. Three ;reasons,- ireally. — we had
times, the kind that involved a stretching t great respect for the egg, hot only".as>an
rack when they were laundered. This, rack, "-economic asset but because it- meant >a

curtains at size while they dried. For some ' ghe ^aid »x wish you»d, yt her-she's
reason, and I think it'was a matter of " easier to clean."
"bleaching," stretching curtains h?d to be
done out of doors in the sunlight, and from
first to last cleansing the curtains was a
long drawn out chore.
I remember how bare and shamefaced
a room always looked when Mother took
down the curtains to "do" them. This was
an illusion, because the curtains were
transparent and hardly affected the passage of light one way or another. They were
frilly and decorative, and that's about all.
Lace curtains were, though, a touchstone
of good housekeeping, and of occupancy.
A house .without them didn't look right,
''Those people must have moved out —
there's no curtains,*' my mother would say.
"Either that or they're washing them:"
-    "No, I don't see any racks on the lawn,"
Whenever 'Mother announced she was
about to do some curtains one or another
of us would bring the racks down from the
My sister said once, long afterward,
that if she had taken the time to think
about the relatively harmless nature of an
egg and the precise location.of the curtains
she would certainly never have bobbed her
head. After breakfast -my mother took
down the curtains, bathed the geraniums
and wiped up the floor, and my ,sister and
I- brought the rack down from the barn
attic and set it up in the' sun. -Mother completed the long task of rinsing and wringing at the sink, and when the curtains
were on the rack we all watched all day
for rain clouds. * , .
•My cousin took no part in the refurbishment that followed his crude and unfriendly act. He stood off by himself and "watched us arrange the rack and seemed to
gloat at the work he had caused us. Whatever the argument had been, he seemed
to' think he had won it, hands down. {Being

great  technological* triumph ,of   our'. TV 'some thfrd-cousins^oven, -and they,.were
days, and called for great care and know-
how. I seem to remember that Mothed preferred rain wa'ter for lace curtains, and
she jounced, rinsed (rensed!), wrung and
sloshed the curtains in a pan, or small
tub, in the sink unlil she got them just
right, and then she would meticulously fit
them oved the pins of the drying rack and
pessimistically opine that it -probably was
going to rain. I don't remember that it
ever did rain, because,Mother could sense
a good lace curtain day and never picked
a bad one, but she had us children conditioned so we kept an eye on the clouds as
long as curtains were out.
1 All day whichever room was being
"done" felt empty and looked bare. But
as soon as the cleaned curtains were put
up everything revived and a crisp, fresh
attitude prevailed. Not another^ thing in
the room had been touched, but everything looked better. ■,; ,
- * on the morning my cousin hove the
soft-boiled egg at my sister» we all tunied'
phd watched the progress of the -missile,
at|d saw it -burst in a, great, goldeh glob
that vied kwlth the IhcomtHkg sunlight, and
we; saw the particles centriflru'gallze, If I
may be permitted the expression, and defile the two lace curtains that were hanging proudly at either side. Wo saw some of
always coming to visit-^but' that one never
came again. Mother saw to-it.
The most Wonderful thing about babies
is that they don't carry .photos of their parents to show around. *

"-But  my dog does!"  1 1  oyment Insurance  THE Unemployment Insurance Commission  has passed,on answers to some of the  questions- that have puzzled  contributors. ���  Your question too can be referred to this  feature for reply.  Q:���I have received a letter from the  Unemployment Insurance Commission telling me that my benefits are cut off "because you are not available for work.'-" I  am available.  A:���We checked your case. You state  that you are available for work. No douibt  in your own - mind you honestly' believe  this. However, you are not aVaila-ble for  work a�� required by Section 542 (a) of the  Act. Under "the Unemfployment Insurance  Act, in order for a person to be available  for work he or she must be ready, willing  and able to accept employment immediately in the general labor market. You  have stated that you have been unemployed for a year, and that you know that there  are no jobs in the town in which you live.  You have also stated that you would not  accept employment away from your home  town. Because you restrict yourself to em-  1 iployment in your home town, where you  ' have admitted there are no opportunities  for work, you have not proved that you  are available for work as required by the  Any Questions please?  Act. If you wish to appeal this decision to  a Board of Referees, you will find -instructions on the reverse side of the letter which  informed you of the diso^alific?ition.;  Q. I have hired a full-time babysitter  for a few months while I am. working. Am  I required to pay Unemployment Insurance  for her?  A. The work of a babysitter is not cov:  ered by the Unemployment Insurance. You  are therefore not required to pay.  Q. My husband and a friend have formed a partnership in a trucking business and"  haves a small office. During the day I go  to the office and answer the phone and look  after the books. For this I am pMd a small  salary. Should I have an insurance book  and pay unemployment Insurance?  A. No. Because you work for your husband, your job is not insurable.  Q. I am employed as a caretaker of a  church and do not pay Unemployment insurance because of being employed by a  charitable institution, I heard that some  charitable organizations insure their employees. Is this possible?  A. Yes provided the institution consents  to insure the employee concerned and that  the Commission concurs.

Make sure they 'are all working  properly and that headlights are properly  -aligned. When car lights are required,  drive with headlights, NOT parking lights.  Parking lights do not help you and they  confuse other drivers.  A particular hazard in night driving is  travelling at a- speed which is too fast for  the headlights.  Most car headlights on low beam will  only illuminaifce the road 100 feet ahead and  it becomes unsafe to drive at more then 30  ���miles an hour exception well-lit expressways, because ait this speed it takes the  average driver 90 feet to stop if it becomes  necessary. The high beam will throw light  ahead about 350 feet and 60 miles per hour  becomes too fast for the lights because it  takes the average driver 370 feet to stop  at this speed.  Keep night speeds within the range of  %e headlights-r-don'it.drive onto trouble.       \  DEFENSIVE DRIVING  ��� A defensive driver is described as one  who is always aware of -all conditions on  the road around him so that he is able to  see trouble ahead to 'be able to defend himself against it and stay out of accidents.  A cfignificant contribution in the field  of traffic safety is the Defensive Driving  Course. In many cases, accident rates have  declined sharply where the Course has been  taught arid perhaps if avc had more defensive drivers, we would have fewer dead  ones. If you have not taken this worthwhile  , course, it is suggested you contact the  Director of Adult Education in your area  concerning its availability.  TIPS FOR BICYCLE RIDERS  ���OBEY a'H traffic laws, signs and signals. Stop for all stop signs and obey all  traffic lights. Travel as directed on oneway streets. Keep to the right side of the  road. Signal your intention to stop, turn,  or slow down.  DON'T weave in and out of tnaWlc. Move  in �� -straight line as much a�� possible.  KJDE in a single file.

English newspapers  carry daily reports of the alarming increase in the use of marijuana among  young peopie and a lengthy debate ih the  British House of Commons terminated  last week with announcement by the  Home Secretary that his government has  no intentions of reducing existihg'penal-  ties for use or sale of cannabis, commonly known as ��� "potI\ Maxunnm penalty  there is $2,600 and ten years imprisonment On indictment. ,-. ��� --  In Britain, as on the American .continent, a move has been afoot1 to seek a  reduction if not total aboliticai of any  squalor, poverty arid ignorance to which  this drug is an important contributory  cause."  During 1966 there were 1>397 convictions for drug offences in Britain. In  1967 they rose to 3,024. In .1964 some  500 people were dependent upon heroin,  a figure which rose to 1,299 in 1967.  New regulations introduced in 1968 revealed the fact* that of 2,624 addicts,  2,096 were on heroin. A case study-of  one group showed that at 16-17 they  were on cannabis, at 18-19 they took  heroin and at the,age of 20 were..hi  hospital for permanent treatment. No-  one can dismiss the tragedy of'young  lives being thrown away in this way.  With a total population of almost  actually  Readers' Wight a  Hats off  Editor, The Ttme,s,  Sir: Recently,. I had occasion to spend  ^i few days asi a patient in St." Mary's Hospital and would like -at this itime Jo make  ���a few remarks regarding my treatment  and observations while there.  f My, hat is off to'tite Doctors; ,Nu-rses";  Linen and Kitchen Staff, It is beyond me'  to express adequately my feelings towards  these people who" find time, from the early  haurs in the morning until nightfall, to listen to 'their patients' little complaints -and  "then when they ��re getting 'better, ithe ��cca��  sional smart remark. Always a smile and  a good answer to cheer one up. Even whenr  all is quiet at night, there is the comforting  sound of a soft footfall passing through as  the nurses keep watch over their patients.  These people are dedicated -and efficient, but how much more efficiently will  theyvbe able to operate when the hospital  expansion is completed. Now a patient has  to be moved several times to provide room  for incoming patients, making extra work  in addition to their regular duties. It is  remarkable, they don't lose track of a  patient.    ���  As far as I am concerned there is only  one thing to do on February 22nd and that  is put the Hospital Referendum through  and give these people who are doing a  <great job, room ito turn 'around.  N. A. CAMPBELL  53,000,000 these figures are  almost-insignificant, yet, in. Britain it is Primitive age  considered a serious situation and, indeed,, it. should be. The most significant  point is that there are probably for more  addicts'than'fhis In Canada with a population of less than 20,000,000. Therefore",- it would suggest that if the'British  penalties for use of marijuana oh growds   ^^ is concerned with its pro  that it is-considered harmless.. It js - a   "  great credit to the Home- Secretary that  he has taken a firm stand and more  notable is the fact that- most- MP's on-  both sides br the House applauded his,  verdict. '   '  In stating ^a -few revealing facts on'  the subject, Home Secretary Mr, Calla-  ghan stated,-in talks with;members-,of  legal and medical, professions he has  learned that cannabis is associated with  crimes-of violence, and" abnormality of  oqe kind and another, most commonly  it is associated with a kirjd-of degradation of the personality "this country  owes -a debt to other countries- of. the  world hot to permit -within its boundaries  the spread* of this vice," he said.  "We have hot suffered very badly  from it yet but if we were to go back  blem,.we. should be treating ours as a  major catastrophy.     '  , Excuses . and idealistic theories by  pseudo intellectuals' are meaningless and  " most certainly provide no realistic answer  to the situation.' The'solution is a simple  one,Jet the penalty fit the crime, This,  of course, is not always quite as simple  as it might appear for there is always the  ���question of circumstances. Right here  locally .we  have   a  situation  whereby  young people who previously had good  -characters have- fallen into the clutches  of older, less reputable individuals and  have subsequently fallen into the hands  "of the law. It- would therefore - appear  .rather unfair to expect the same penalty  for a young misled first offender as that  handed out to' a seasoned criminal.

It was natural to ,feel frustrated   consideration?  when you sdw' persons' with special  passes or entry permits gaining admission ahead of those who had waited so  long in the line-up..      " ���  In .the light of the speedy and expeditious admission into -Canada of  thousands of Czech refugees, following  thef recent crisis in their, ho-melaiid, a,  similar feeling of frustration, perhaps^  even of desperation, must afflict many  other refugees who, have .been, seeking,  entry to this country through ihe regular  channels governing , admission.

The "point" system, now . used in  evaluating immigrants assesses the applicant's age, education and occupational  training, his trade or professional qualifications, and weighs these against  Canada's need for workers in particular  fields. In a word, selection is clpsely  related to the absorption capacity -of this  country. But isn't this method of selection loaded In favour of national self-  interest, rather than compassion?  How serious was the Government's  declaration in the White paper (1966)  that immigration policy would be modified to permit more refugees into Canada  on compassionate grounds? How does  one measure compassion���in terms of  the world's diro needs, or in terms  primarily of Canada's self interest?  Surely our country's vast wealth and vast  potential justify putting more emphasis  ���not upon manpower to fit our economic needs���but upon the world's need  for greater: compassion toward aU the  underprivileged seeking a haven in  Canada,  residents df 'the Sunshine Coast?

The changeover .from distinctive army,  navy and air force uniforms is scheduled to  be completed in Wl.  The new single-service rankings were  announced last year.  The rank of sergeant is equivalent to the  old Petty Officer 2 in the navy, sergeant in  the army and sergeant in the air force.  Master corporal is an entirely new rank.

The approved applications cover every  type of financial' -assitance provided under  the Program. These include grants -and  loans for the construction of new vessels,  repair or modification of, existing vessels,  and the purchase of' gear and equipment.  Some outright grants have also been approved to permit older *^3ian fishermen,  who are in need of iissitance, to continue  to fish and be self-supporting for their remaining active years. Priority is being given ta applications where it is indicated the  fishermen requires assistance for the 1969  fishing season, according to Chairman  Robert Clifton.  The Board has emphasized that some  avoidable delays in processing applications  has resulted because insufficient supporting inform a-tion is provided by the applicants. Since the objective of the program is  to help increase Indian" fishermen's earn-"  ings, the Board must base its decisions on  the information provided by the ��� applicant  concerning his financial status, production  record, and the fisherman's ability and potential for improvement.  Proposals are being invited from Indian  Band Councils in coastal villages regarding  the construction of shore facilities for their  fishermen. It is anticipated that the pro-  visionof these facilities will assist in better repair and maintenance of their fishing- vessels. Preferehce^wUT be given ,to.  those proposals to' which the village is prepared to contribute. Certain villages have  already initiated discussions on this basis  and other interested villages are encouraged to participate. In addition, the Board  is considering ihe necessity for several installations of a larger type to be operated  by Indian people in order to provide central facilities for carrying out major repairs.  The Fisheries Training Course for Indian fishermen presently underway at the  Terrace Vocational School, will end Feb.  14th. Reccm-mendations will be made for an  increased number of this type of course to  be sponsored by Indian Affairs and Canada  Manpower. However, adult training courses for Indian fishermen are still in progress. This type of course, given at the vil-  lages^ covers such subjects as: navigation,  engine repair, fishing gear, vessel maintenance, and other associated topics.  Administrative costs for the Indian  Fishermen's Assistance Program are being  borne by the Department of Fisheries. It  has thus been possible to ensure that over  99Vii% of the projected expenditures will  be employed for the benefit of Indian fishermen-,  a  total  allocation  of $18,000 for  five years of administrative costs for the  $4,600,000 Program is intended to cover the  expenses of the three non-government  members of the Board.  The next meeting of the Indian Fishermen's Development Board will be held  February 26 at 1155 Robson Street, Vancouver 5, B.C.  Its never too late to kick  that cigarette habit  IF YOU'iRE on the 'cigarette haibit now,  don't think the damage caused by smoking has already been done and that there's  no point in quitting at "this laite stage".  It is never too soon or too late to quit  smoking, because many of the changes  found-in cigarette smokers' lungs are reversible. The body starts to repair damage  associated with cigarette smoking as soon  as thejha-bit is discontinued, says the federal  health t depafrtment publication, "ftX���No  Smoking".  If serious disease has not already developed, 'gradual improvement occurs when  you stop smoking. The lining of the 'bronchial tubes gradually improves. Cough and  shortness of breath are less frequent among  ex^mokers than smokers. Even patients  with established chronic bronchitis and  emphysema generally improve when they  stop smoking cigarettes, says the pamphlet.  The danger of early death from a heart  attack, lung cancer or chronic bronchitis  and emphysema is reduced.'  s^^ki,^mmvimmm9mmmmmmM#mmismmmf*mmm>s<S!fs  PRESENTS   ���  RANGER DIABOLIC  Starring  John Phillip Law and  Terry-Thomas  IN COLOR  TARZAN AND THE  GREAT RIVER  Starring  Mike Henry and Jan Murray  TECHNICOLOR  h>   I  r*;  -^  ii  Starts & p.m.  Out 11 p.m.  FRIDAY, SATURDAY, MONDAY,  February 7, 8 and 10  -&  ^whwwi"  ���mw''-im;HJ��L&.3^bi  \  -2332��5  I  ATTENTION LEGION MgMBOtS   I  �� s  | Your next general meeting will be held |  | FEBRUARY lOtSi, 1969 at S p.m. |  | following the Blood Donor Clinic \ fe  SECHELT LEGION HALL  "SUPPORT YOUR NEW EXECUTIVE"  e the people meed ihe encpciiision  of our -Hospitcil to prevent having  a waiting list for our faimilles to  receive care tand attention.

(CANADIANS (Peninsula residents included)  are among the world's ."biggest producers1  ���df garbage. Every day we throw out more  than a hundred million pounds of the stuff  ���five pounds for each roanj woman and  child. And more garbage is piling up all  the time. What's to Ibe done with it all?  What is ibeing done is dumping and  burning, .but each system has its limitations. Incineration creates its own waste  disposal -problem. It cuts down the volume  of raw waste -by 80 per -cent, leaving ash  residue. And a lot of municipal garbage is  just not combustible. Incineration can handle only half of a city's garbage, by weight.  Air pollution from incinerators can be  cut with scrubbers, which collect dust and  noxious gases from the effluent. Toronto's  new incinerator in North York has a scrubber system that takes all but about one  quarter of a pound of dust of every 1,000  *^*JI^2L^��^JFJ^ i   incinerators were not built to handle.   In  similar'jncmeratoii'w, North York used to���     .�����__    _,__��������   _���*.   mnW. ��w<��m  *r.  minute. Earlier this year, Chicago planned  to test the idea with a pilot project of its  own. ,,  Garbage can also be made into Intel.  First, you remove the scrap iron, pulp and  paper, wood, copper, aluminum, rubber and  plastic, leaving the food and biological  wAstes. Shredded and with the moisture  squeezed out, this part can be extruded into  blocks and used as fuel.  PLASTIC BAGS 1  Getting rid of those handy plastic containers is not yet a problem, according'to  the Society of the Plastics Industry <New  York), although it -may become so in the  next decade. Plastics are now only 1.5 per  cent of total refuse, the study found, but by  1076 plastic packaging" alone may be two  per cent of the total. This could mean headaches >with incineration. Burning -plastic  releases tremendous heat which the older  discharge six .pounds of dust per 1,000  pounds of effluent before having a scrubber installed.  STRIP MINING  Dumps are so respectable that they're  not even dumps any 'more: they're sanitary  landfill projects. They are commonly and  effectively disguised as parkland, such as  Ottawa's Greenbelt and Sarnia's centennial  park. Toronto area skiers will be able to  slide down a 600-foot slope of compressed  industrial wastes in Etobicoke this winter.  Strip mining areas can be reclaimed by filling them' in with  solid wastes.   But the  etc.   Mr. LaFcnd has donated one set of'   spread of cities is gobbling up landfill sites.  "partition"  curtains and  the A.C.W,   was        Someday cities may be using pipe lines  asked to purchase material for ithe others.  IN BRIEF  Miss Kay Taylor of Vancouver was,guest  of-Mr. and Mrs. Frank A. Taylor.  Mr. Jlarry Oorlett is attending Fishcuv  imen's Convention in Vancouver.  Mrs. Irene Green' who visited relatives  and friend's' in Vancouver has returned to  take up -residence at Itlitz Motet,  Recently paying their first visit to thd  Sunshine Coast wore Caiptailn and Mrs. Robert Carsell of Ottawa and Prince Edward  Island who were gucstis of Mr. and Mrs.  F. Ross Gibson, as was also Mrs. Douglas  Bcnrdngcr from Picitou, Nova Scotia.  Mr. A. S.

The ceremony wais performed by  Canon Bishop at St. Georges Church Ira the  capital iciity.  Mrs. Molly Kennett spent a month in.  Victoria with Bill and Jean Lissiman.  There was a good attendance when the  Annual Congregational Meeting of the Gibsons Pentecostal Assembly was held in the  Tabernacle on Wednesday evening, January  29th. Tho Church Board members were all  -returned to office: Secretary, F, J. Wyn-  gnerl; Treasurer, It. Bracktjtit^, .Member,  Kami Schroera  ���Mto. 'B. J. Whisker* gave, .the report of  Hie Women's Missionary Council, floorgo  Charm an- reported that $120 had been sent  to a missionary sponsored by tho Sunday  School.  to get their garbage to landfill sites. The  University of Pennsylvania is studying the  possibility of using ,-w pipe line to .transport  solid garbage in a liquid slurry. Sweden is  using pneumatic tubes to move garbage by  vacuum to central collection points in congested city areas.,)  One way to 11 mit the build-up of garba go  could well be to re-use it., Already auto  steel scrap goes badkrto the steel .mills to  be used again. How about squeezing waste  into blocks and coating the blocks with concrete to .produce a new building material?  This is one way to get rid of old or wrecked  cars and is now being developed under a  U,S. government contract.   Car bodies are  burned   to  destroy,'.flammable-   materials.  Tho remaining scrap metal is cut into sec-  lions, compressed and then encased in'two  inches of concrete.   Tests show that walls  of these scrap-cored blocks equal those of  solid   concrete   blocks   In   load   bearing  strength. The scrap-cored blocks arc lighter  and provide better insulation than the conventional typo.  They show promise in the  construction    of    commercial'    bulldlngfl,  bridge abutments and piers, foundations and  retaining wall?..'- <   ' ,       ,      '  BUILDING BLOCKS ���    V  A Japanese firm has come up with a  variation on tho building blocks theme. It  has created a machine; to compress garbage  into compact rectangular shape* that will  bo enensed in iron to make building blocks.  The machine can turn garbage into building ' material nt tho rate of seven tons a  addition, plastic needs more .oxygen to,  .maintain, combustion, reducing the amount  of rubbish that can be burned.  Composting .methods are not .practical  with plastic because- its 'biological digestion  rate is so much slower than that of other  solid wastes. Sinking the stuff isn't' much  better: buoyant polystyrene foam wastes  halted experiments aimed at permanently  sinking garbage in the sea; the foam brought  the sealed containers bobbing to the surface.  CROSS PURPOSES  The whole problem of packaging was  neatly summed up in a statement to a U.S.  government subcommittee. 'The aims of  packaging and solid-waste disposal are mutually exclusive,' said Arsen Damay Jr., of  the Midwest Research Institute. 'The packager wants a container that won't, burn,  break, rush, degrade or, dissolve. The waste  processor . ,, wants just the opposite.'
