And tliree  oncimands later (with the loss of a day's  ��  M!W*  YEAR after year carnage in the woods  continues as an avalanche of would-  be big game hunters armed with lethal  weapons descend upon a few semi-tame  deer and blast forth at anything sufficiently unfortunate to move.  Father shoots son, son shoots father,  brother shoots brother, hunter shoots  horse; the press headlines are so familiar they are no longer considered news,  but befind these headlines lies, tragedy^  heartache and untold misery^  Preflominating all these $g��idie_$��> i$s&  the fact! that guns were pe__m;~ed to fall  into the hands of people totally unqualified to handle firearms, and i^he unfortunate situation is that, invariably, completely innocent people are the victims.  Typical example was that of a. B.C1  land surveyor who while working on a  Galiano Island subdivision last October  was shot dead by a hunter. This type of  slaughter has prompted the Corporation  of B.C. Land Surveyors to join a growing movement aimed at preventing what  is described as "senseless acts."  j A spokesman for the surveyors expresses the view that it cannot be accepted that killings of this nature are accidents or that they are a necessary price  for the freedom to go hunting.  President of the BvC. Land Surveyors, Mr. D. G. Whyte, states: "We believe people in settled areas can no lon^  ger' tolerate irresponsibility in hunting.  Even if society is not yet prepared to  erase the menace posed by the drunk,  the dope addict, the psychotic and the  criminal, there are some steps that can  be taken to control the killer in the  woods. It is not necessary for people to  wait until one of their fellow hien is  shot down before action is taken."  Statistics reveal the fact that an  average of ten deaths take place each  year as the result of careless hunters.  Unfortunately the almost criminal actions of a few reflect upon hunters in  general and to give due credit it must  be pointed out that the large majority  of hunters arc responsible people who  take every precaution and have taken  the Irouble to educate themselves in gun  handling in, and out of, the woods.  Soon to bc lauched is a province-  wide educational training program by  lhe Wildlife Branch which will expand  work already done by Rod and Gun  Clubs and will evenlunlly. lead to compulsory testing before hunting' licences  arc issued.  This is certainly a move in the right  direction, but by no means sufficient to  eliminate the problem for such tests  would, in effect, offer little more protection than passing of a driving test and  just about every road misdemeanor is  committed by i1h.sc who have successfully taken driving tests.  The surveyor's organization proposes   a   few   more   innovations   which  would certainly help. They include: Expansion of Tareas where hunting and discharge of firearms is already forbidden.  These are the ever expanding wort ing  and recreational areas where many people are in, or close to, the bush during  hunting season and 'where enforcemlpnt  is presently difficult because property  owners can give verbal consent to hunters. It is felt this suggestion will be kp-  preciated by good^ sportsmen who ||do  not hunt in such settled areas;  jyn����jS_tf .pjE ^auxiliary officers  during Sie 1ftiJ9___g "season to assist  polite in safety enforcement duties;  Licensing of Indians to bring them  under the benefits of the training and  examination program; ,/  A fund, sustained by licence feesf to.,  provide financial remedy for victhns of  damage or families of those kited or  wounded by hunters' bullets;  Amendment to the Wildlife Act re  quiring- owner's  permission   in  writing  for hunters to use his land.  It would seem^hese suggestions have  considerable merityand repeat the request by the 'B.C. Land Surveyors that  all interested , wri};e.\the_: local authorities or MLAs urging that action on the  issue be sought.  Fletcher's Philosophy  ���Harry W.

'    ']   ,  This is the major -east, the Feast of  the Immaculate Conception, and it overshadows the. festival of Christmas Pay.  One colorful -ustom of ''<__jistn_as,  Italy!" is the annual' visit from the hills  , of Calaforian shepherds J- dressed in goatskin trousers and .multi-colored jackets.  Piping pastoral flutes, they pause before each and every shrine, and at the  door- of every carpenter shop. They do  tbis to honor the carpenter, Joseph, husband of Maryland to honor her child, the  Christ-Child ��� the God-Man who was born  and died on' this earth, to save mankind.  The Christmas scene in Italy is set  with bunches of sweet- fto'wers and the  graceful olive tree.  For Italian children, Santa Clans is not  the jolly gentleman in the flowing white  beard and. red flannel suit, but "Befaina'."  ��� a male witch clothed in rags, who rides  from house to house on a broomstick.  Befana, of course, is a good witch.  Like Santa, Tie leaves presents for the  children by the hearfe, and good littk  . boys and girls in Italy, like good _.-_.<.���  .boys and girls in Canada, doubtless can  hear the sound on the rooftop, in the stillness of ijie Christmas night, as Befana  makes his nocturnal visit!

Y  Focal point of the cdebra-ions: is the  Church of the Nativity, one of Chr_5tia__ty's  earliest churches, built by (the emperor  Consffcantine in the fourth century. The massive building dominates the Manger  Square in the .centre of .JetM-hem.  On December 24 at one o'clock, the Latin Patriarch sets out from Jerusalem at  the head of a solemn procession on his  way to Bethlehem, 11 miles away-.At the  tomb of Rachel, the Biblical matriarch, on  the outskirts of the town, he is welcomed  by Bethlehem's clergy, city officials and  representatives of, the old families who for  at least 300 years have had the privilege  of acting as an escort of horseback for the  Patriarch. Joined by tbe diplomatic corps  in cars and several thousand members of  religious and youfh organisations on foot,  the colourful procession wends its way  through the winding streets of Bethlehem  (till it reaches the Latin Church of St. Catherine next to the Nativity Church. When  the Patriarch enters the church, the congregation sings "Benedictus Dominus Deus  Israel"���Blessed be the Lord of Israel,  after which Solemn Vespers are chanted,  Only 1,000 invited guests can be accommodated inside St. Ca.���iej.ne's for Midnight Mass, but Fserviices are relayed by  closed circuit TV to the Manger Square  outside. Bells start ringing at JO o'clock.  Solemn Matins arc held at 11 p.m., and a*t  midnight the Patriarch celebrates Pontifical Mass.  Thc sermon is preached in Arabic. AfU."  thc Mass, the Patriarch carries in proc.vs.  sion the famous "Bambino" to/the Plactf of  the Manger'in a grotto below ithe Nativity  Church. Low Masses continue ithiroughout  tho nitfht at the altar of iho Magi opposite  tlie Manger, while the congregants continue to sing until well after 2 a.m.  On Christmas I)ay at 2 p.n). a pilgrimage will leave St. Catherine's Church for  thc Shepherds' Field outside Bethlehem for  a 25 minute service.

Any Questions please?  If my pay period was on a monthly Instead  of a weekly basis, I am sure my total earnings would be high enough to warrant the  highest stamps.  A. It is just not possible for you to pay  the difference, simply because the stamp  is based on earnings and is governed by a  schedule set out in the Unemployment Insurance /^ct. However, the structure of  rates of benefit and the scale of contribu-  ���ticms are such that occasional reductions  Of earnings would not significantly penalize a claimant.  mmn  i /  ...to p'J,c_r customers.

Jean Chretien, l____ster  of Indian Affairs and Northern Develop-  ment.  The loans are part of the department's  Off-fteserve Housing Program, started in  May 1967, which already has provided  houses for close to 150 families. More than  amjuther'150 families have been granted1,  approval to purchase homes under the program.  At the same time, regulations have been  made more flexible. Mr. Chretien- explained that under the previous regulations,  the 'maximum available was $6,000 and of j  this''amount" $1,000 hid to he used for the  purchasing m furnishings. Under the new  regulations, if furniture is not required.  the purchaser may borrow up to the full  amount available to him and apply it towards the cost of his new home.  - The'.-iiniSter said that. $1 mi_Uon -has  already been committed on >1he program  and another $1 million is to be made available. The program assists Indian people  liying off the resryes in the purchase of a  home by providing second mortgage money  to individuals. The aimount off the mortgage is determined by the annual family  income. The 'borrower must also make a  rainimum personal contribution. Another  feature of these loans is that the loan is  forgiven at a rate of one-tenth per year if  the borrower satisfactorily meets bis first  mortgage obligations.  In making the announcement, the Minister pointed out that the increase was made  necessary to allow Indian families to meet  minimum, earning requirement established by Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation and to offset the higher costs of  land outside reserve communities. It had  been noted that although some persons received large second mortgages, they could  qualify only for a low CMHC mortgage. As  a result, in-many cases, they had to acceipt  accommoda .ion which did not meet their  requirements.  The. amount of money made available  as of October 8,1968, is shown in the following table:  Drug trafficking  local men charged  COMBINED efforts of the Gibsons and Sechelt 'RCMP Detachments and*"the Vancouver Drug Squad resulted in the arrests  last Friday night of two Gibsons men who  were charged with tra__c_ing in marijuana  and opium.

^ Another spifce in the iWffin $i -julingtt-
$Lksm was driven, ioane last week with the
release nt the sec-ond report of the- 3>uhton-
"jG-agno.- Eoyal Commission -on Bi_.nguali.6m
Land Bicult_ra_.6_a—nwv universally Isno-wn
^»s 'the "B & Z". »
i   It officially endpwed *hese proposals^
*   m Public -ducation should be provided
din both French and English in offi-ially-de-

"^Canada.
sf  ©The mother tongue <of tie minoriiy

Ahe niunber of \the majori'ty group attend-
'-lng the minority'- language school — either
}English or Fpirench — should be limited if
-necessar>' ito preserve the  sohool's   ''ling'
\uistic and cultural character."
I    B Teachers  for 'the  mmority-language
'^schools should i^ ir^ined separately from
-those  headed i^»r   npjofiity   schools;   but
their qualifications ishou?.^ jbe fully comparable.
0 In the Attantic .pnoyinces, Fxench-
■language ^.ns-ructors- ishould ,'tee trained at
the teachers' -codlege in -'JMonpton, N.jR. A
similar i&ebool -hould be e-taiblisFhed to
serve Wesitern Canada.
B The F-deral Government should bear
responsibility for the extra eo;st involved
in providing jbilingual instruction.
0 Ml students should be required to
study both of the o^tcial .national langu-
agfSj English and J^rencb.
B M__ority4angua_e __sstrucft-on sihoyid
continue throughout ihigh school.
Q 'French  instruction ___»uld  Ibegin in
Grade 1 in English ..an'guage schools, Eng-
'liish at,the Crade 3 level in French-speaik-
ing schools.
To Fgovier 'the cost of these proppsals,
the coanmission irFecFommended payment of
a federal grant to each province, based on
the nu-_ber of students attending -__cial
language minority schools. The grant
would equal 10 per cent of itihe average cost
of education per pupil within the province.
But the enthusiastic promoter's of ibilin-
gualism on -he royal icoxamission ibrushed
" aside concern aibout ithe additional tax
money involved. j.
Commission •co-chairma_. Bavidsori' Dun-
ton, former cba__xu_n of the CBC board of
governors and now president of Ottawa's
Carleton University (an Engjisih-language
institution itself) termed the extra expenditure requi_ied '"marginalY -
And his fellow oo^ch-airman, Quebec
journalist J^O'Louis G-agnon, pointed out
it was the Federal Government's "duty"
to promote the development of 'bilinguallism.
Fully .as Foonfident as the co-ichairmen
was commission member Mrs. -Geirtrude
Lamg of Calgary, who argued ithat tihe
extra eosFt sho_l- be balanced against
superior <dev^opment of Canada* s _jj_axan
Tesouroes. The principle of equal status
ior^EngS-sh. and Fr-encli, she assured a
piress Fconference, -was now gaining ao-
ceptonce iSiroughDut the nation.
Aathouglh -hat may have been an overstatement, -here was at least a measure
of endorsement forthcoming from provincial pohtical leaders.
On the same day the commission issued
its ireport, QiieShee's Premier Jean-Ja'cques
E-rtrand nai__ed a "petiYB & B'4 of Shis
own'— a .$axrvSh$a$-''royab commission ito

parents to nest .— there have ibeen several
recent instances of Quebec school boards

Fpeioch .or ■ E__li'Slh Snstac-ion for their

: .Ontario, wliich' iwith New Brunsiwidc will
bear the.lbwnt of switching over ,to ib_in-
giual ins-motiion, indicated it will' 'go along
wiitiih the FC^mmission's proposals. Premier
BoMc'h-ud of iNiew Bnunswick predicted'the
iijaport wil bave a "u__fying'-_CectM across

The-stranger stirred froon the chesterfield and opened a notebook.. Slowly tufn-  ing the pages jhe announced that Albert'ilad  come to the end of the line. There was no  'more to life; this was all there was.   .  But Albert Holstead pleaded his casie.  He ih-iiilored the stranger _o give him more  time. He humibly" requested to', be alowed  to stay in this life long enough to he ^ybie  to _u__B the an_bition that had become a��  obsession. He had to make his role as a  Santa Claus genuine!  . The stranger was impressed by AHjert's  sincerity and reluctantly agreed to extend*  his life span for an inde-mite period, bat  -h_-& wias one problem. The messenger  , .feom^eath -not only had a strict q_ota to  maiotain..jgit .also a deadline to meet. Aftw  the destine he could not take that paritiFCU-  lar person -^ the schedule was very tight  If Albert Hoistead -did not go then someone  else had to be taken to meet the quota. The  deadline was midnight the following day,  Christmas Eve.  jSomeone else was tq take Albert's place  and he felt relievied! He bad been granted  a reprieve. He had been given time to fulfill' his deepest desire. However, as disenchanted as he was with his role in life, Albert was not ready to\die. ^The stranger  did not say '"when" the\ extension ��� expired  and Allbert was in no hurry to grant any  wishes, either this year or nexlt.  ��   ���   ���  All the children in the building where  Albert lived were his friends. In fact, they  were the only friends he really had. During  the summer vacation from school he was  their constant companion and now, during  the winter when the icy blasts kept them  mostly indoors, Albert would help them  build a snowman in the small open space  they could make when they moved aside  the garbage barrels in the back alley behind their tenement building.  ��� The morning fallowing the visit of thc  stranger was the day before Christmas  and Albert. Holstead left his room in the  tenement and began to trudge toward the  department store and another day as a  make-believe Santa. As he pushed through  the snow covering the sidewalk, lost in  thoughts of thc reprieve he had received  from ��� Death only last night, he failed to  notice one of his little friends running  across the street to rtieet him, oblivious of  thc car hurrying down the street toward  her. He looked up quickly when he heard  tlie tiny scream, just in time to see his  little friend crumple into the snow beside  Page A-6 The Peninsula Times  . Tuesday, December TA, 1968  the curb and the spinning automobile  crunch heavily into a lamp pole. -  Albert did not'work that day. All day  long be stood on the sidewalk outside the  bunding, while in "her "room the Ettle girl  remained deep in a coma. ��� -  As the day wore om the little girl's condition grew worse and Albert was becoming  very worried. The day wore on into night.  and he was stM pacing the^ street in -wont  of the '--uftdiag, small icicles Storming oh the  pieces- of ��� false .heard sticMng out of - the  back pocket of his red trousers, when the  messenger from Death appeared again. It  was ten o'clock and it was dark and cold.  'MJood evening, Mr. Holstead,'' said the,  stranger��� as:he walked'p-_^A_-*ertTai^'up  the t^itsyio-'^'^^^X'M'-'^'b'^dap^Yi"  "���Here, where are you- ���goingt*' enquired Albert, hiirrj^ng up the stairs after him.  "Why, Mt. HO_?tead,. this is Chi-Stanas  Eve aihd midnight is my deadline. Someone has to come back with me tonight,.Mr.  Holstead; you know that!"  In that moment Albert knew- that his  little friend was to be the one. to take bis  awn place so that he might be allowed the  reprieve. '"Now just hang on a minulte,  hey ^-demanded A-beart and he 'began to  harangue the stranger; he began ^deliver  an oratory with the eloquence of a Successful salesman. Years of | playing Santa Glaus  brought forth sugar plums and sleigh and  children's other wishes; bicycles and horses  and little girl's- d-shes.  The messenger from Death listened patiently as Albert Holstead painted a- hopeless picture of the beauty of youth and' the  hopes and dreams, of the .young at heart.  At midnight he would take the Ettle girl  and depart. .������-.������,���-.  Time dragged on and as the little child's  crises grew nearer so did the deadline.  Still Alibert continued the palaver, talking  incessantly and de__a___ng complete attention, ahd the stranger was -lowly beco. a -  ing exhausted with the intensity of conviction Albert displayed. Time dragged on  and on!  0 ' ���-������.- n  Finally, the stranger sighed, then started suddenly ��� sometbing was wrong! It  was two minutes past midnight; it was  ChrisHmas Day.j Albert's little friend had  come out of her coma; the fever had broken; Albert had stalled for tune and Death'  had been cheated; it was past the deadline!  ��� \ Alibert Holstead looked into the face of  the angry stranger and chuckled deeply.  The stranger regained his composure and  pulling his not-book from his cloak fixed  Albert's eyes with his own. "Mr. Holstead,  I am forced to eliminate the name of the  little girl from the roster." Albert's chuckle  turned to a rich laugh. "And do you realize, Mr. Holstead; that I can not go back  empty handed. I am over the deadline,  therefore I am forced to revert,to the directive. Albert Holstead, your reprieve has  been, cancelled"!"  Albert took the stranger by the arm  and led him down the stairs to the sidewalk; His little ��� friend lived and his own  desires had been fulfilled. He continued to  chuckle merrily as he walked away with  the, stranger.  *   ��   ��� v  The' snow fell silently into the silent  street in the tenement district of town. A  solitary star shone brilliantly through the  neon glow of thc city. And thc only sound  was the deep, robust laughter of Santa  Claus as he, a' stranger and the night  merged and became one.

George Washington, first President of  the United States, surrounded " himself  . with family and grandchildren at cheerful Christmas parties, and set the theme  ���of a. "merry Christmas'' for bis country.  , Washington also furthered the - use of  American holly as a decoration by growing 'the' glossy-leaved tree on his estate  at Mount Vernon.  Andrew ' Jackson was" fond of giving  Targej "colorful parties for young and old  on -Christmas Day. Frozen ices, a novelty  at that time, were served, and there was  a small, frosted pine tree, surrounded by  toys. ;  Franklin Pierce introduced the modem  Christmas tree to the White House in  1856.  Benjamin Harrison, In 1889, told reporters he planned an "old fashioned  Christmas" including a Christinas tree, for  his family, and urged others to join turn  in observing the custom.  Conservation-minded   Theodore   Boose  velt once refused, to allow  a  Christmas  tree in the White House. His son, Archie  smugged one in, however, and the presi  dent finally  relented.  First lighting of the National Commu  nity Christmas Tree at the White House  was observied in 1923, when Calvin Cool  idge was  President.  wmmmmm  wmmmmmmmmarm-mmmmmMmmm  mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm^mmmmmmmMmmmmm  GOOD CHEER  TO ALL  m,0  Km  >J?-��4' ^vV-'i^'i  LYLE AND OLIVE AND STAFF  The Caters Inn  Sunnycrst Shopping Centre  "TTYTn  ��� ' v t  i: �����  '      *��.  ��� 0   .���JWi *.*.  ;. to all our good friends 1 We've  enjoyed serving you-we look  forward to serving you again!
