I have noted  comments with "respect to use of the  floartacilities; pollution^ the-construc���  tion of on-shore toilet' facilities and your  comments with respect to upland zoning, etc. These points,and other brought��  , forward in letters of'objection have been  studied. 'However, the commercial and  private boat traffic of the coast must be  provided for and although you suggest  two alternatives- I would with respect  question them for they do not offer the  shelter provided by the Secret Cove location, nor do I know of any other nearby  alternative that would do so.  "Although it "might be said in retrospect that another solution could have  been found after reviewing this case I  am not-disposed to change the decision  reached   by  my  department,"  Williams  . concluded..  Director Ben Lang, at the Board's Dec'  21 meeting at which the letter was read,  Williams'  oyed the mating sub-com-  aid, "H we let  said,  "I take exception  reply."  1   Director J. H. Tyner  ter be referred, to the pf  mittee.' \  Director Frank West'  them get away with that,.they will do it  everywhere.',' He was referring to Williams' reply. ^    .. ,  Lang told The Times that the/main  objection of the lease is the, pollution  that would be caused with a large number of boats mooring in the area. He said  -the -whole- area could become congested.  "It would set a precedent to obtain moorages elsewhere. Regional 'boards would  soon lose their power to determine such  matters."  Director Tarn London, who is also  president of the Area B Ratepayers' Association, said that his group is opposed  to the lease because of pollution.  "Last August there were 36 to 40  boats tied up in a narrow arm,  "There -is a narrow entrance to the  cove," he said, "and the tidal flushing  action is nil." . .   "  Donald Pye, a resident in the area,  is" also opposed to > the lease for much  the same reasons, he told The Times.  London said that the lease was granted last May by the" previous government,  "and Williams doesn't want to disturb  the ruling of his department."

That sewers are  a must to ensure proper development of  the area goes without saying. There are  many imponderables about the sewers  ���mainly, no one has yet come up with  a cost figure.

On foxhunting.  Editor, The, Times,  Sir: In a Vancouver newspaper,; Miss  So and So says she has written to the  queen asking her to stop Princess Anne  from fox hunting. If I was the queen  (this is quite supposltous, there is no  likelihood of this metamorphosis) I would  wrftc to Miss So and So thus:  "Dear Miss So and So; If, and when,  you people in Canada stop the practice  of clubbing baby seals, in front of their  mothers, and sometimes beginning to skin  before death, catching fur-bearing animals In barbaric traps, shooting deer,  moose and mountain goats for' the sake  of their horns, when the hunter does not  rcquirev.th.a meat, then, and no]t till then,  will,-, J-forbid Princess Anne to fox hunt  arid the Duke of Edinburgh to shoot  pheasants.

For more than thirty years, we have  done tliis by being a constructive countervailing force to the thrust of the multinational companies and special interest  groups who hove sought control of large  areas of the public resource under conditions contrary to the public interest.  In this period, and in major part due  to guidelines defined in two royal commissions, public forest policy has provided the highest standard of resource  utilization and replacement anywhere in.  the world. This province has avoided the  mistake, common in other forest areas,  of unfettered private initiative on the  one hand and irresponsible public' administration on the other. /  Tho essence of British Columbia's policy is that forest land Is owned by the  public, nnd Industrial users of the land  are required to perform to guidelines.  As far as loggers are concerned, these  include harvest of the crop under sustained yield principles and reforestation under ecologically acceptable procedures;  und as far as manufacturers are concerned, construction of facilities that utilize  the resources to economically sound  levels. Overall, there is a requirement  for loggers, manufacturers nnd merchandize��� to cooperate.

MacLeod of  Selma Park is  seeking the pdsVof school'trustee for  Area B. The election is Jan.^13 and';is_  being held to replace Bernie Mulligan  who resigned in anger in November. .  Mulligan resigned    following Education Minister Eileen Dailly's refusal to  allow  the  school board  to  name Don.  Head-to replace Sheila Kitson who resigned in June.  At the time of his resignation at a'  school  board  meeting,  Mulligan    said:  "This is the third time the Department,  of Education has gone against a decision  made by. the board. If this is an indication of the, way things are going, I have  $\T��d ,alterriatryevi>ut' to resign."  ':'"* ^Head's appointment was approved by  "the board Nov. 6 but a few days later  they learned that the Sechelt Teachers'  Association "had been notified of Mrs.  ���"Dailly'S -vetch'Tv"!'*-wo*-^'     -....* ��� v j v ;'"  This led to a charge by Mulligan that  "There is' an indication that Sechelt  Teachers' Association has Mrs. Dailly's  ear."  - An education department official  later apologized to the board351'for the  "leak".  In seeking the post, MacLeod, a retired teacher, counsellor and administrator, told The Times:  "I am offering my services as school  trustee for Area B with the belief that  I can make a positive contribution to  ^tM^;growth, ,of education; iji this district.  "The most of my working years have  been spent as teacher, counsellor, and administrator-in elementary and secoidary  schools in <this province, six years in ruraL  areas and the last 33 years in Vancouver.

For the deliveries, Len Wray donated his moving  van plus a pick-up and a tank full of  gas." ���������������������..  Local stores cooperated, also said  the Elves, by giving a 10 per cent cash  discount off all food and gift items.  "With the last cash donations, wo  purchased boxes, of chocolates to distribute to patients at St. Mary's Hospital."  - Most of the gifts donated wore Intended for children under eight years old  and their mothers, said tho Elves, but  this problem was solved by purchasing  gifts for older children and fathers.  "There1 were toys galore for the little  ones���an array of beautiful dolls, doll'  cradles, horses, games, wheelbarrows,  trains, trucks, cars,'bats and balls, hockey  sticks etc.  "1 he Elves oven put in stocking sniffers for, the wee ones," said a spokesman  for tho group pf ononymous benefactors.  "Teenagers' and parents' gifts were chos-��  tin from among lamps, cako plates, Jew  ellery, perfume, shaving lotion, records,  a guitar, radio/record player, china cups  and saucers, bedroom slippers etc."  The mammoth project undertaken by  the Elves involved countless hours of  hard work. But their reward is best summed up by an episode involving a youngster and a smile. ,  "As .the delivery van pulled up to  a house, the) ipay-off came that made the  whole Effort worthwhile," recounted the  spokesman. "A little boy in the window  was sobbing his heajrt out. The driver  said "I'll soon fix that," whereupon he  pulled out a box filled with toys and  a rocking  horse.  The  little face  broke  into smiles and just beamed. Then the  little boy ran out, waved his hands and  shouted, "Come in, come in."  "You will never convince him that  Santa Claus is a jolly guy dressed in  red. He knows, for sure, that he's an  Elf."

The lounge was bright with Christmas  decorations, mony of which were made  by the patients themselves. Though some  of the patients were taken to the lounge  in wheelchairs, they wore their prettiest  robes and corsages and were obviously  in a party mood.  There was a fun hour while Keith  Comyn called some friendly games of  Bingo and the patients, helped by friends  and volunteers, competed with enthusiasm for the attractive prizes donated by  the auxiliary. Sister Trudeau and Mrs.'  Ed Cook sang carols, and refreshments  were served which included two birthday  cakes. Then Mrs. Cliff Connor arrived  like a second Santa' Claus, and distributed gifts to the patients from, the  combined hospital auxiliaries.

Having just done  so myself, Tm afraid I didn't emerge  cpmpletely unscathed by the experience.  The vacant expression oh my face isn't  just from lack of sleep... I'm trying to  remember which boxes the food, clothing and table legs are packed in.  The moving company supplied us  with a booklet of hints which I tried to  follow to the letter. However, they don't  - tell you what to do when all has been .  packed and you .then have to.canceilyour. J  move for another three weeks. Such was  the predicament' in which I found myself.  Reasoning that what was packed  couldn't be worn or used again and therefore would not have to be re-washed and  repacked I opened only a few essentials. '  Then I went shopping and purchased  enough groceries to see us through our  weeks of imposed detainment.  Almost immediately; problems arose.  I was going to bake a cake for dessert  and realized the vanilla and baking  powder were packed away, so decided  to make a pie instead. After mixing up  the pastry I discovered my rolling pin  was stashed near the bottom of a large  packing box. Not wanting to unpack  the box I began looking for a substitute  '. rolling pin. The tube from some waxed  paper was all I could find and, although  it needed plenty of pressure, worked just  fine.  The teapot was packed, so we had  to make tea the American way, a cup at  a time, by dipping the bag.  When moving day finally did arrive,  we reached our destination only fco find  the house still incomplete. There was no  kitchen or bathroom. Now I hate to cook,  so was quite willing to forego the luxury  of a kitchen. But when it comes to the  bath I'm a regular sybarite. Besides the  bathtub is where I get some of my best  ideas, and they're always clean.    .  Well there seemed- to be no solution  other than to have the movers stack all  ,    our furniture in" the basement and we  live elsewhere until the accoutrements  of everyday living had been installed.  The real fun,began two weeks later  when we started to move our 15 years  of accumulated, acquired nnd inherited  furniture upstairs. We did pretty well  , until it came to the bookcase, j Now it's  not just an ordinary bookcase,' It's the  size of an upright piano and was made  from my husband's great grandfather's  four-poster bed. Just why the conversion  , from bed to bookcase occured has never  been explained. Maybe someone decided  books were more fun than bed.  To make a rather long story short,  .we managed to get the bookcase halfway up the stairs, my son and I at the  front end and husband bringing, up the  rear. Then I got the giggles, an affliction  which always strikes in times of great  stress or some" impending disaster. Managing to retain my composure, we dragged the heavy thing up two more steps  which now almost upended it. I could  no longer see anything of my husband  except a pair of flailing arrrts. I had  visions of him. being steam-rollered  through tho basement wall by the cumbersome piece of furniture if, I should  i lose my grip which was by now becoming, rather slippery. I knew my deodorant  had given out!  It we could manage three more steps  we'd bo on level ground. My son tugged  and I tugged while tho other children  yelled words of encouragement like,  "you'll all be killed!" Then with an  " enormous shove my husband pushed the  bookcase to the top. We'd made It safely  and all sat down to rest,  Hut now that the thing is upstairs I  have a feeling It would really look much  better downstairs in the recreation room  after all, v       ,  SOAKED BUT HAPPY youngsters  loaded aboard fire trucks at Roberts <  Creek just before Christmas and  ���sang Christmas carols.

Leaving Japan, the next stage of  their flight took them to Taipei, Taiwan  and then to Hong Kong. They visited the  adjacent city of Kowloon and stood at  the border of Red China, but were not  allowed to enter. They saw the wreck  of the old liner Queen Mary which had  caught fire and sunk while being reconditioned as a tourist attraction.  During their travels in the far east,  they saw many statues of Buddha, but'  the one that1 impressed, them most was  made of 5ft J&hs of solid gold near  Hong Kong.        ,.,..

KING  MinUter of  Labor'  THIS is the first opportunity I have had  ; of extending New Year's greetings to  the people of British Columbia since becoming minister of labor,'I do so now,  with the full knowledge.that we in this  province have a wonderful-future and  a great opportunity to make British  .Columbia a place where our people will  be able to work in dignity and with a  high standard of living.  In order to achieve these worthy goals  the government has already made provision' for increasing the minimum wage  to $2.50 per hour ,over the next year and  one-half and has removed the compulsory features from the mediation legislation.  "  We fully intend to accomplish much  more, however. For instance a special  inquiry body will be set up to submit  a report on industrial relations in the  province. It will travel to various parts  of British Columbia and afford labor and  management an opportunity to express  their views and make recommendations  for improving our industrial climate. As  soon as is humanly possible after the  commission's report has been studied, its  recommendations will be reflected in  new labor legislation.'! am hopeful this  will be accomplished within the next  18 months to two years.  During the same time the Workmen's  Compensation Act will be;completely reviewed and legislative changes introduced as quickly as possible. There are  many casesvih which justice does not appear to have been done, although the existing law may have been observed. I  expect provision will be made to prevent  such situations from occurring in future.  The research' branch of my department will become increasingly involved  in assessing the needs of the working  people of the province. Enquiries will be  made into those factors which are acting  to produce changes in the working environment of our people, with studies  ranging between the broad subject of  worker satisfaction and development of  factual data for use in the collective  bargaining process. 7_  The object of these undertakings is  to humanize the working conditions of  the men and women in British Columbia  and tp; improve the standard of living of  all. If we can make aft effective start  on' achieving these aims, it will be a  very happy, new year, indeed.  Dental Topics  GROWTHS and tumors of both the soft  and hard parts of the mouth occur  more frequently than is generally rec-.  ognlzed. Of course, not all are malignant;  many are benign.  Nevertheless, it has been estimated  by authorities that of all the deaths in  Canada from cancer 5.2 per cent of male  and 2 per cent of female fatal cases  occur in the mouth," pharynx and esophagus. Therefore, early detection by  .those who work in the mouth, head and  )neck area can save lives.  Approximately one half-of the cases  appear on the lips, and more frequently  the lower lip. However, the tongue, gums,  cheeks and bones of both jaws may  develop tumors.  As a rule pain is not an early symptom; therefore, one must be watchful of  suspicious sores. For example, a swelling  or hardness, however small, which'is of  recent origin and is increasing in size,  any roughening, sore spot or whitish  discoloration, or ulcer which does not  heal within two weeks should be examined by a dentist.  The primary cause has yet to be dis-'  covered. However, accumulating evidence  indicates one of the causative factors  be chronic irritation. Among thosevmost  highly suspected are all forms^Tof the  tobacco habit, jagged tegtbrand ill-fitting  dental appliances.^^-^"^  Early recognition and prompt treatment are-of ^-tremendous importance. Periodic dental examinations and regular  dental care will reduce the risk of. oral  cancer by eliminating or preventing  sources of chronic irritation.  Remember, early treatment of malignancies may not only save lives but also  may avoid the possibility of disfigure-  , ment.

Village to consider  Council may buy oxygen  unit for clinic medics  Jack Morris named  by Gibsons Legion  JACK Morris was re-elected president of  Gibsons Legion Dec. 19 at branch  109's annual election*. Stan Verhurst was  returned for a second term as first vice- -  president and Don McNeil, replaced Cy  Spencer as second vice-president. -  Other officials are as follows: secretary, Mrs. Gerri Clarke; treasurer, Mrs.  Jean Roberts.  Executive v committee: John Wilson,  Pat Quarry, Ray Day, Cy Spencer, Reg  Carnaby. Immediate, past president, Dan  Dawe, automatically sits on the committee. The new slate of officers will be  inaugurated Jan. 13.  GIBSONS municipality will consider donating a portable .oxygen unit to,the  medical clinic, allowing the doctor on  "call to carry a resuscitator with him in  his car for immediate treatment of emergency cases. ;  Ed Kelly, who stressed the need for  oxygen   equipment   in   a   Times* article  Dec. 20, urged council to buy and donate  the unit.  The cost,  he said, would  be,  around  $400. ",  "The amount of money is not ��� important compared to the value of this  equipment," he said.  Mayor Wally Peterson was out of  town and, unavailable for comment, but  Aid. Ted Hume said purchase of a resuscitator would "undoubtedly be one of  the first matters discussed by the new  council in 1873."    ,,  It is a matter of great concern to the  municipality, he said, that oxygen should  be made available.  And he felt it preferable to have doctors operate the equipment rather than  ambulance personnel, as was suggested  earlier. ���  '"I'm very much in favor of it,,r he  told The Times.  Kelly said'that since the Times article  appeared, many people had  telephoned  him supporting his charge of inadequate  emergency facilities in the ambulance.  "If the municipality buys a resuscita-'  tor and donates it to the medical clinic,  the doctor on call could place it in his  trunk," he said. %?*The doctor is usually  called to an emergency first, and if the  patient needs oxygen,, it would be there.  "This way, we would get around the  fire department not wanting to come out  on a 24-hour basis and there would be  no problem of getting trained personnel  to man the equipment."  In the case of a seriously ill patient,  the doctor would probably travel with  him in the ambulance, he added, and he  could administer, oxygen if necessary.  Dr. R. A. Cline, spokesman for the  medical clinic, was unavailable for comment on this new move, but Kelly said  he had spoken with him and he Was in  full support - of council donating a unit.  Council's inaugural meeting is on January 8, and Aid. Hume.feels confident the  matter will be discussed shortly afterwards.  ���-By Pastor Gerry Foster,  -Gibsons Pentecostal Church  THIS week-.we enter' a^new year. A  ~' practise for many is to make -New  Year resolutions. The dawning of a hew  year seems to inspire incentive in certain  individuals, but in many cases the incen- ��  tive fades as the new year' gets older.  Nonetheless .resolutions are made and  I .want to suggest to you the greatest  cesolution that <you-could possibly make.  Perhaps you enter 1973 on a tumbled  note. You are lonely, frustrated, or just  plain fed up with life. You inwardly  wish that you could begin your life anew  realizing that whether it is 1973 or any  other year really makes no difference,  because your problems, needs and circumstances still remain. '  ' However, I share with you, the fact  that God has a glorious plan fpr you  in 1973. In fact, if you believe His word  and act upon it you will experience a  rebirth that results in a whole new life.  God will tear' up the old script of your  past ��� life giving you opportunity to start  again, but this time Christ will be your  captain, your guide, your strength. You  "will have a new outlook new desires-^-  a new year fille&^with lasting joy and  meaning.  But you have to be resolved and determined to invite Christ into'your life  and heart as Lord and Saviour.  New tanker slated  for fire department  ROBERTS   Creek  Fire  Protection   area  will receive enough funds to purchase  a tanker.  The department had sought $12,000  from the regional district to purchase a  new tanker and to blacktop the driveway in front of the fire' hall.  However, Charges Gooding, secretary  of the board, said that if the full $12,000  was' authorized it would create a substantial increase in the mill rate for the  next few years in the area.  ' Board chairman Harry Almond, who  is also Area D representative, said that  although the equipment ;is badly needed,  the mill rate "is a little higher than  I anticipated. They can't operate without a tanker."  Director Frank West suggested that  the board be authorized to spend only  $10,000 for the tanker and other equipment in order to keep the mill rate down.

Jerry Dixon noted that the street  light had hot yet been installed at Cozy  Corner on Marine Drive.   In his - street Jighting_ and_ wharf _rej_j  port, Dixon added that'an old boat house  had collapsed at the wharf and was unsightly. He said the matter would be  taken up with the wharfinger.  Reporting    that    municipal    auditor,  Martin  Bone,   planned  to  retire,   clerk  David Johnston recommended that  the  Vancouver firm of Dunwoody-and Com-_  "pany be appointed in his place.  Johnston noted that the firm currently audits the municipalities of North  Vancouver, West Vancouver, Squamish  and others, and "would be of considerable aid." i  Council agred to make the appointment  on  the  motion  of JUd. Winston  - Robinson, seconded by Aid. Ted Hume.  A meeting is to be arranged between  council and the trustees of Brothers Park  early in the new year to discuss administration of the park.  Dixon, attending his last meeting before retiring, expressed his thanks to  council fpr their' co-operation during his  term of office.  ,He hoped that the new members  would be able to carry out the projects  that had been started.  Mayor Wally Peterson in turn, expressed, council's appreciation for the valuable work done by Dixon.

Force Unit 357  GREETINGS!  * Cleaning up,the old year's unit news,; ,  I can tell you that the December Anavets  Giant Bingo was the,best turnout we  ever had! The total prize money given  out'was, happily, well over a thousand  -dollars. This was augmented,by_over $300  in door ticfcet draw prizes, one for^every  bingo called. The merchants.and businessmen who donated the prizes certainly did  a great'job of helping make the evening  an- enjoyable one!  A usual, there is always one, idiot  that fouls things up. They had this fat  guy up on the .stage^callihg some of the  bingo game's. Everybody .started complaining they couldn't see their, cards because of the light glare of his head, so  someone put a pop carton over "his loaf.  When you are calling a bingo game, you  take the little balls out of the air pipe,  call the number and put the little ball in  the tray marked with each ball's number..  At the end of each bingo, you push a  button and all the balls fall through the'  ��� tray back into the cage. The game was  1 going famously until SIX PEOPLE hollered BINGO all at once and this idiot  panicked! He pushed the return button!! .  The balls all rolled merrily back into the  cage ^nd this clown is desperately reaching for a clutch or a" brake or a reverse'  or something! I think the only time he  ever called Bingo was when he went  into a liquor store. ���  The draw prizes were beautiful! One,  a framed, hand worked sequin peacock  in  full array  was  donated  by  Pauline-  Irvine.  Originally,- a  side  view ofs this  magnificent bird, ��� Pauline explained that  while the" peacock was a side view, her  husband, in a pique of anger one night,  stamped his feet and poked a hole in, it  . willi the spiked stick he uses at work!  Voila!  A truly three dimensional side-  . rear view of a beautiful peacock. When  '  this was brought to the attention of the  u$it by the winner, a flesh colored Band*  ~ aid was applied over the hole.  Another prize was a written guarantee,  by a large local store, of a suspended  sentence for any shoplifting on their  premises (providing it was during store  . hours.) The guarantee was only good for  1972, so I am desperately trying to find  the winner to warn him!  The unit, as you know, is trying very  hard to raise enough money to equip one  - of the ferries with a milkshake mixer. We  presented them with what we thought'  1 .would be an ideal combination mixer and  emergency power unit. This is a % horsepower Seagull outboard motor. It can,  you see, not only mix milk shakes, but  in the case of a disaster, serve as power  ��� for-alifeboat! It has not worked out too  well. Because of the efficiency of the crew  there-have'been no shipwrecks and be-  .   cause 'the milkshakes, although they are  extremely   large, -are  $18.   The   purser  "explainedtbi:us that the 'rather high price  j   of.Jhe milkshakes is to cover the cost  |" -of rough weather, clothng for the person  running the machine and for the cleaning  - off; of walls and customers after a steady  daily request for this delicacy.���-  A brief submitted ;by. Anavets for  speeding up cafeteria service on the ferries was turped down- The suggestion  made by us was that rather than wander  around with a numbered ticket (not  knowing where to pick up your order),  you merely holler help! or fire! pr abandon ship! or some other ear-catching  words and the customer's hamburger or/  sandwich could be simply shot to the  ^customer with a very large sling shot-  presented to the Ferry Authority by us.  This worked very well with burgers,  sandwiches and such because the man in  charge of the sling shot was hired on the  strength of his past experience as a whale  hand-harpooner; but has been discontinued because, as with all beautiful  schemes, they are always bverworked!  One poor fellow, struck with a Tuesday  morning doughnut, (a ricochet at that)  was carried ashore delirious and the lady  . struck in the face with the lemon cream  pie apparently in shock, and unable to  see, walked off the wrong end of ferry  when it docked.  Oh well, it's not as bad as the girl |  know who, when hollering the order  numbers over the "mike" just used to  holler "burger and chips!" or "ham and  eggBl" I, understand BC Ferries is still  settling injury claims for that day.  Well, a good New Year to all those  who will be writing "1972" on all their  correspondence till about February!  The next Anavets Giant $300 Jackpot  Bingo will bo on Jan. 13 nt 8 p.m. sharp!

Johnston told The Times that ambulance service probably would be discussed with a view to some, form -of tie-  up with St. Mary's Hospital  Council confirmed that hook-up  charges to Gibsons' new sewer 'System  wilL fall within the $150 figure projected earlier.  "We received some material from the  engineer on sewer costs," said Johnston,  "and it appears $150 is a valid amount."  This figure, he said, would apply to  householders who live on the line and  who connect to the sewer when their  houses are being built.  For householders who connect to the  line six months or over after the system  goes into operation, cost will be around  $200, Johnston estimated.  Joe Kampman, publicity director of  .the Sea .Cayalcade committee, reported to  council that this year's festivities would  be' bigger and better, tluuv ever, and  stressed that his committee would like  to work closely with the village.  He asked advice on providing decorations for the Cavalcade that could also  double as Christmas decorations tor the  village. /  Aid. Winston Robinson was asked to  set up liaison between council and the  Sea Cavalcade committee.

BCAA advises motorists to lock" valuable luggage out of sight in their automobile trunks while travelling, and to  carry belongings with them into overnight accommodations. Personal papers,  identification and credit cards, and extra  keys always should be carried by the  owner���never left in luggage.  The~^mconvenience 6fT~emptying "the"  car each night is negligible compared to  the long-term- and costly inconvenience  of losing clothing and other valuables,' the  BCAA said.  8 Motorists who find belongings "missing from their automobiles were advised  to report the theft immediately to local  police and to their insurance agent.  Tourists* cars tempt theft,' the BCAA  said, because thieves expect to find not  Page 10 The Penlmulo Times  Wednesday, Jonuory 3, 1973  only good, clojhing and accessories but  also such' "bonus" items as expensive  cameras.

MB failure cited  in apoeaJ hearing  THE B.C. Appeal Court has ruled that  MacMillan Bloedel failed to take action to cut its losses in a million-dollar  forest fire and referred its damage claim  to the B.C. Supreme .Court registrar for  assessment.  The Appeal Court judges also refused  to allow the forest company's claim of  $136,311 for falling snags and reforestation in the burned-out area.  The judges were dealing with an appeal by B.C. Hydro and Power Authority,  Basil Van Home and Alex Brayden against a B.C. Supreme Court award of  $1,213,669 to MacMillan Bloedel. The  award arose from a fire August 16, 1967,  which damaged 6,400 acres of timber.  Hydro and its employee' Van Home  blaze, caused when blasting knocked a  were held 65 per cent responsible for the  conductor from a Hydro transmission pole -"  at the west end of Sproat Lake on Vancouver Island.  Hydro the Appeal Court judges said^  was negligent for failing to de-energize  the power, line after receiving notice of  blasting and was vicariously responsible  for Van Home's negligence in 'failing to  install insulators on guy wires that supported the power pole, for installing the  wires in such a way they would carry  electricity to the stumps, for leaving excess wire in highly conductible material.  The judges said that de-energizing the  wire  would  have  been  one  step  that i  would have prevented a loss occurring.  Brayden, a department of highways  employee supervising the Port Alberni-  Tofino Highway improvement project,  has been'held 35 per cent responsible in  the B.C. Supreme Court judgment.  But Appeal Court Justices J. D. Tag-  gar t ond H. W. Davey reduced this to  17% per cent.  They ruled that Roy David Adams,  a blaster employed by Windsor Construction (1962) Ltd., also was 17%,, per cent to  blame, and that Windsor was vicariously  responsible for its employee. .  ���wMr. Justice A. E. Branca, dissented  from the majority and would have freed  Brayden of responsibility.  ������;,,, In the Appeal Court judgment the  two men were found negligent for falling  to move big pieces of rock to a safe  distance from the power pole before  blasting them.  According to evidence the pble was  supported by guy wires wrapped around  nearby stumps and these were net afire  when the conductor was knocked from  the pole and four charges of electricity,  each generating tremendous heat from  approximately 3 million watts, went into  tho ground in hazardous forest fire weather.       '  Tho fire burne'd from August until  early September and the Appeal Court  judges found that failure to build roads  and log the burned area increased damage caused by sap rot.  The Judgment Raid that no matter  how quickly timber was1 removed some  damage would be caused by sap rot but  In this case it accounted for $034,400 of  the more than $1 million, claim.  Hydro, represented by 'Alan Mc-  Eochern, rtrgiled that tho claim for sap  rot damage was materially Increased be  cause the timber, company failed to remove the timber in a reasonable time.  The Appeal Court ruled that complacency induced by absence of visible  sap rot and anticipated savings from the  completion of one road, led to a slowdown of vital, road construction and logging in the burned area. Mr. Justice Tag-  gart noted that before the fire was under control the timber: firm; was planning how to salvage timber and had revised a 10-year plan to do so.  "Had the plan been adhered to, it is  clear that a substantial portion'.of the  damaged timber would have'been removed by the end of 1969 with only a  relatively small volume tp be removed in  the year 1970". "   '   "  "If that had been done the claim for  damage by sap rot would have been materially reduced," he said.  He said he would allow the appeal,  insofar as it relates to the failure of MacMillan Bloedel to mitigate its damages,  and would refer the matter to the registrar to determine what the sap rot  logging plan been carried out.  loss would have been had the 10-year  Cancer facts  STUDIES of many populations throughout the world have indicated that at  least 80 per. cent of cancers are caused  by . environmental factors.  Some of these have already been identified in epidemiological studies, particular ly cigarette smoking as a' cause of  \ cancers  of' the  lung   and   bladder  and  ' chemical cacinogens in some occupational  groups.  Other leads are currently being actively pursued. It is anticipated that the  study of factors such as diet, social customs and habits, previous illnesses and  medical care, occupation and ethnic origin of Canadians oyer the next few  years will lead to the identification of  more causes of cancer.  This will increase our opportunities  for the prevention of cancer if the responsible factors can be eliminated.

Pender Harbour seniors  r  enjoy Christmas ieast  SIXTY-THR5E members and. friends, of  the Pender Harbor Senior Citizens Association Branch 80 attended a Christmas  party Dec. 18 in Madeira Park Legion  hall.' ,-   . '     j  Mrs. John Haddock entertained with  Christmas music on' her electric organ.  President Mrs. Med Olson greeted the  guests and " Mrs. R. Course said grace.  Following dinner, carols were sung with  the accompaniment'of Mrs. Haddock on.;  the organ. A game was played which  proved to be quite hilarious.  The winning tickets for the raffle  were drawn by the eldest member present, Mr. Coromier, who recently turned'  91. The first T>rize, a set of glass tumblers, went to-Mrs. Helen Latt; the second, a" box of chocolates, to Mrs. E.  Lorentzen and mystery ��� prize to Pat  Logue. ��  The entrance of Santa, Pat Logue,  with the jingle of bells to distribute the  gifts added to the merriment.     -      v  MEMBERSHIP of Branch 69 Senior  Citizens' Association is now so large  that the Christmas dinner had to be  staggered over two days, with approximately 100 members being served on each  occasion.  -    The Legion Hall was gaily ^decorated  -with  a   lighted  Christmas    tree   holly  -���=from=the =gardens-of -Mrs.=C._A^Jackson.  'and Mr; C. E. Higginson, and candlelit  '/tables in a decor of red and white. There  ' were* colorful Christmas serviettes  and  crackers donated by the Sunshine Coast  Lions' Club. Caterers were' the Anglican  Church Women of St. Hilda's who supplied an excellent dinner of turkey and  all  the   trimmings  followed  by  mince  pies.  There was keen excitement when it  : came to drawing the winners for the  prizes so generously donated by Shop  Easy. Hampers were won by Mrs. Eric  Bushell, Mrs. Tommy *Marsfin, Bill McGregor and Dan Morrison. Winners of  gift certificates were Mrs. Jo. Gibson,  Mrs. K. Lyall, Mrs. Madeleine Grose and  Mrs. Gordon Campbell  Entertainment * convenor was Mrs.  Dorothy Stockwell who had collected a  ' surprising amount of talent for a concert.  Two fine singers gave excellent renderings of well-loved carols, with Walter  James singing "Holy Night" and Dave  Hayward with. "Shepherds in the Hush'  of Night" and "White Christmas". The  chorus which led the carol singing was  composed of Mrs. Foxall Sr., Mrs. R.  Elderkin, Mr. and Mrs.,H.,Rugge, Walter"  James, William C. Coffey, Emory Scott  and Dave Hayward. The, musicians who  accompanied the singing and- supplied  music for dancing were pianists Mrs.  Ruby Hatcher, Mrs. Dave Hayward, M^.  Art Redman,, Mrs. Chas. Evans; accordion, Emory Scott; .guitar, Mrs. Blanlhe  McCj;a��yf violin, Curly Lucken and Art  .Charlie Brookman whose memory  "seems as keen as ever,, recited "The Picture on the Barroom Floor" .and Gordon  Potts recounted "The BaftSTqf Hastings"  from the "Little Albert" series.  A piano duet, Christmas Overture,  was played by Mrs. Dave Hayward and  Mrs. Art Redman. Between the items  of entertainment, members threw themselves into old time dances, spot dances,  broom dances, hokey-pokey and' musical  arms. The many prizes distributed had  been shopped for and packed by Mrs.  Lorene Yates^arid her daughter, Mrs.  C. Blackstock. ^  ��� by Harry Otaussen, MP Coast Chilcotin  "v.  the present  TWO - months have gone' by since the  federal election and a popular (unpopular) subject in recent weeks has  been the possibility that  government may be v^j%  defeated in theivery fe-ife  .near future andTthat_  .we'll, soon be^ faced  with another election.  ' Most people with  whom I have talked  have expressed their  concern anout this  possibility. The NDP  Members of Parliament, after their first  caucus meeting" since  the election, made it  clear that it is the  duty of all members,  regardless of party, to  make Parliament work to ensure that  it deals with Canada's urgent problems.  This "is no time to "play politics".  "The people have spoken" is the first  axiom of democratic politics. If minority  government is the result, theri the politicians are under at least a moral obligation to make it work rather than looking-for an early opportunity to ask the  people to try again. "  The New Democrats have made it  clear that they will maintain their political principles. They are willing to com-,  promise, but not to the extent of being  -hypocritical and destroying their credibility. They have indicated that they  will support any government that will  'introduce legislation to cope effectively  with priority issues that face Canadians.  Since the NDP holds the balance of  power at the present time, members of  the NDP opposition are provided with an  opportunity to pressure whichever' /party  is in office to bring about some of the  social' and economic reforms that are  long overdue/As opposition members,  they- can -make sureJthat some of the  more pressing problems such as unemployment; the rising cost of living, inadequate-old-age pensions and the accelerating depletion of our resources by  foreign' corporations can be dealt with effectively in the best interests of the average Canadian.  - - IrirordeiTto"get-a-better-perspective=of-=  this riding's needs and'problems, Imade  it a point to cover as many areas of  Coast-Chilcotin as possible prior to my  return to Ottawa for the opening session of Parliament. Areas still to be.  covered will be visited as soon as arrangements can be made' to, absent myself from Parliament without upsetting  the delicate.balance of power.  Problems covering unemployment  insurance, veterans'., pensions, the environment and other ' areas of concern -  have been brought to my attention. Many  of them have been dealt with already  while others will be dealt with after the  holidays.  , Problems relating to Manpower pro-  .grams and federal programs in-such fields  as fisheries, transportation and communications will be reviewed over the next  few months and action will be taken in  the best interests of the people of this'  . riding.  The next few months will be a dif-'  ficult period for me as a new Member  of Parliament. However, t will face this  challence with determination and, hopefully, with the supoprt of all constituents  who share my desire to make this riding  a better place to live in.  In the meantime, I would like to  wish everyone in Coast-Chilcotin a Happy and Prosperous New Year. May the  New Year usher in a period of greater  social and economic justice for all Canadians. /  NOTICE  Pender Harbour ��� Egmont Area  For Insurance of all kinds  Phone your Resident Agent  '   JOHN BREEN LTD.  883-2794 (24 hours)  MIGHTY MITES  Classified AdBriefs reach more than  2,500 homes every week.
