Array Regional board told . . .  DAVIS BAY���Chlorination  of Slunshine  Coast Regional District water supplies  do not meet B.C. health branch standards,  directors were told at their meeting last  month.        ,        - - ��  ��>. M. Bell, senior public health inspector, Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit, Powell  River, told the board that samples' taken  by J. W. Somers, health inspector, do not  meet standards in four of five locations  tested.  - On Nov. 20 Somers' tests revealed that  only Gower Point was free of coliform  bacteria. With O indicating a negative  count the other tested sites indicated:  Davis Bay 5/5; Roberts Creek, 2/5; West  Sechelt, .3/5; Sechelt main office, 3/5.  Bell said that Somers is continuing his  sampling and added: "If future results  are similar to those mentioned above, then  we will have no alternative but to require  adequate chlorination of this water supply."  He said: "Certainly no bacteria of the  coliform group should be present in any  sample.  "I wish to re-emphasize to the regional  board that I advise that this water system  be adequately chlorinated immediately."  District Planner Peter Hoetriberg told  the board that in the .past three years  chlorination of the water system had to  be increased threefold. It was also reported that the district is preparing to buy  additional equipment to carry out ade- -  quate chlorination.   .       ,  In other business, the' board was told  that the department. of recreation and  conservation had plans to designate Lot  2991 at' Skookumchuck Narrows as park  land.  '- G. F. Macnab, planning division chief,'  told the board in a letter: 'We believe  that the reserve placed on this land will  ensure that it remains in the hands of the  crown and that any development will be *  prohibited.",  Director-elect Norm Watson said that  extra space that the regional district office  requires could be constructed in Sechelt.  Watson said that he knows someone  who may be willing to construct adequate  quarters for the offices within the village  of Sechelt.  He said that if the board is interested,  he will make further inquiries,  Serving the Sunshine Coast, (HoWe Sound^tbJeryislrilet), Including Port Mellon, Hopkins Landing, Grorrthams Landing, Gibsons, Roberts Creek,  Wilson Creek, Selma Pork; Sechelt; Halfmoon Bay, Secret Cove, Pender Hrb., Madeira Park, Garden Bay, Irvine's Landing, Earl Cove, Egmont  ,2nd Class Mail  '.

'  "The board did a good job in keeping  Elphinstone open in September and arriving at a satisfactory insurance settlement," said Hanna. '1973 will long be  remembered in the history of School  District 46."  The superintendent felt that 1974, also,  would be a full year for board members.  Trustees would have to appoint a replacement for Bill Nimmo, who did not. stand  for re-election; decide between the one  or two school concepts; consider provision  of additional special education classes; and  hammer out with, Sechelt Teachers', Association an acceptable in-service training program. ,  Adult education', in the district may  have to be re-organized, also, he felt.

IT HAS been more than a year now  since the matter of a sewer system  to serve SecheU village, Indian reserves  and portions of the Sunshine Coast Regional District was proposed.  - Where do.we stand? Almost in the  same place we were this time last year.  Engineers Dayton and Knight outlined  their proposal in a-public meeting in  Sechelt Elementary School last February. Talks about sewer's and the necessity of them have been going/ pn in the  regional district and the village of Se-  cheh\ for many years and in earnest for  more' than a year.  The village of Sechelt and the regional district commissioned Dayton and  Knight to come up with a proposal, for  a sewer system to serve <the prescribed  area. The engineers did and the proposal  was aired at the public hearing.  Former Sechelt1 Mayor Ben Lang, one  of the prime movers of the sewer, proposals, maintained that such a" program  is essential and inevitable. Lang said at  one point: "The day of the septic tank  and disposal field is almost.over."  After enthusiasm was built up for  the system, public interest appeared to  be waning and in April Lang urged the  . regional district to make known its stand  on the sewer .system. Several" directors  (Rita Relf, Area B; Bert Slade, Area C;  Harry Almond," Area D) expressed their  Opposition iS the proposal.  At December's meeting of the regional board, members were still not sure  just where the matter stood.  Director-elect Norm Watson, representing the village, said that the-Hold-up,  appeared to-be with the Indian band,  who, he said, were afraid of loss of  autonomy if'they supported the project.  Band Manager Clarence Joe told The  Times that the band can get financing  for the project and can go ahead with its  . share any time that the band gives approval, y^  However, the fly in the ointment, according to Joe, is that everytime the  white community needs financing with  any project beyond its own boundaries,  the Indians are then���and'only then���  ' considered.  Joe said that when someone refers to  Sechelt, "We want to know which Se-  cheit he is talking about, the municipal  village or the Indian village. There is a  bad history of the whites. dealing with^  Indians." '  Joe's complaints "boils down to the  fact that .when the whites want financial  Post office praised      ^  Editor?

'    ' ���'     t  The Indians fear, the same problem  with the sewer system. As soon as the  whites get their use out of the Indians,  they'll be forgotten, Joe feels.  - "When the whites come and tell us  we are members, of boards or committees,  then we'll ^say* okay, as long as you consider us part and parcel of this area."  Indians want a fair deal. They have'  a population of over 500.persons and  own some of the most desirable property  on the Sunshine Coast. Unless the whites  have- Indian support this community will  never be able to advance. Certainly the  600 residents of ��� the village" of Sechelt  will have difficulty financing a sewer  system to serve, their rather large area.  Residents in West Sechelt are not overly  inclined to jump on the sewer band  wagon and neither are residents in the  Roberts Creek area who are also included in Dayton and Knight's sewer feasibility study.  i So it appears the- Indians are holding  an.ace. If the village fathers want a sewer  system they are going to have to go to  the Indian community with hat in hand  and ask for their support. The Indians  can support the project but they want a  say-in its operation���and rightly so.-They  want 50-50 partnership basis.  In the meantime, costs are escalating.  The proposed system to serve Sechelt  village, Indian reserve, Selma Park and  "Davis Bay areas was estimated at  $1,187,000. That was last year. In this  age of inflation costs will be anybody's^  guess. , ���   ���  Mayor Harold Nelson has indicated  that sewers are still number one priority  to the village. If so,' action had better  take place, and soon.  THE Christmas holiday traffic record  * throughout the .province seems to  have been outstanding from a "standpoint  of safety and lack'ol serious accidents.  Vancouver, our largest city, recorded no  traffic deaths, surely a record.  Authorities credit the "safe and sane"  holiday success to the allout campaign  waged by the provincial government  through press, radio, and TV and which  promised no laxity-in law ,enforcement.  Police officers and judges were, the' publicity clearly warned and frequently repeated, no longer inclined to be tolerant.  "They have seen too much carnage on  the highways and streets." Drinking and  driving would simply not be tolerated,  and offenders were promised driving suspension and a-night in jail.  The Warning, and the intent to carry  out its meaning, apparently took effect.  DrinWng-driving. .offences dropped almost out of; sight.  Am<s>th<��F h&wM��t��t  '��� Om can only ponder  At so> grotesque a blunder.^  THE quotation by Emond Clerihew Bendy actually refers to George III but  it can certainly be adapted to our provincial government, :  Once again the New Democratic Party administration made'a hasty decision  and had to pull back..

' I never said I was-going to quit hunting and trapping. The only time I trap  is in the winter time. I only hunt for  meat and I trap for their fur." I am not  like these kids that steal my, traps- and  put them up again on trails or other  places where people walk. They don't  throw the traps in the water,, they use  the traps and' trap in' the summer. It is  against the law to trap in the summer  and destroy all the animals. That is when  they get their young ones. If you know  the law, it is also against the law to  steal traps on my trap line. I don't put  my traps where the -hikers go.  - I did not mean to shoot- that bear in  the foot. I did not know,' my' gun was  shooting low. I've got another gun now &  it shoots good. ' I. shoot. animals in the  head so that they -don't suffer..  How about the. cougars on Vancouver  Island? A cougar bit a little kid and the  kid had to be taken to the hospital.  I came on a place where the cougar  had killed a deer. Then the cougar came  leaping right for me so I shot him. It  was only about 15 feet'away when I shot  him in the head, so you can see how  dangerous it is to walk in the woods  without a gun.'  Cougars are supposed to kill 36 deer  in one year. When cougars kill deer they  sometimes rip them in two and some  will bite the deer in the head and suck  the blood out through the head. I have  heard some deer holler for about 15 to  20 minutes. I went the next day and  found the carcass with the deer and cougar tracks all around.  I am not the only one that is trapping and hunting. It seems like in your  letter that I "am.

We fotoowv the admonition of  Christ;' "Render unto Caesar the things^  which' are Caesar's; arid [ unto God the  things, that are God's'! >(Matthew 22:21)  This includes obeying the speed limit and  filing a correct income tax return.  In a revelation dated Aug. 1, 1881,  the Lord said: "Let no man break the  laws of the land, for he that keepeth the  laws of God hath no need to break the  laws of the land." (D. & C. 58:21).  Law is the rules of, conduct or the  - principles of behavior that ,enable men  to live together in harmony. It reflects  the moral sense, of the people, and is  based,on respect,for each individual. Under the law all men are equal; they have  the same1 rights arid the same responsibilities. '  ���  We believe that governments were instituted of God for the benefit.of man;  that he holds riien accountable for their  actions in relation to them, both in making laws and administering them for, the  good arid safety of society.    '   -  We are taught that We have an obligation to uphpld and sustain the respective  governments under,which we live, and  obtan our livelihood, from which'we obtain protection for person & property,- and  from which we enjoy freedom of action  and religion. Latter-day Saint parents are  commanded to teach their children to be  law abiding citizens..  We do not believe it just to mingle  religious influence with civil government.  We believe the following rights should be  guaranteed to each individual by government: First, the protection of life- and  property. Second, the free exercise of  conscience, including religious, freedom,  insofar as it does not infringe upon the  rights of others. Third, freedom ��� from  bondage,  It is true that government at municipal,- provincial or federal levels is not  perfect. It is pur right and, duty- to, be  actively engaged in a constant campaign  for improvements, to have good laws enacted and bad ones repealed.  To be in a position to do this, we must  be informed on local and national issues.  We must study all sides of the questions,  and as an informed electorate, make right  decisions at the polls.  We believe that only men of integrity'  should be elected as our representatives.  We  believe that every man should  be  willing to accept public office, even at  personal sacrifice.  We bplieve .that, existing governments,  whateyer their type, ��� should be honored  and, sustained until they can be changed  for the better by lawful means.

FEELING GROOVY  by Kim Smail, Division 1, Grade 7  These are the things that make-me feel  groovy:  Watching a.horror movie after everybody  -   else has gone to sleep.  Seeing. a shadow go by the window of  your   bedroom   and  hearing, a   dog  start to' bark.  The fragrance of new flowers opening on  the first day of spring.  The feeling of galloping on a horse and  ��� ���by Kella Garrison  your hair blowing-in the wind.  Listening to" a new group playing loudly  on the stereo.  Watching TV late on Friday night because there is no school the next day.  GoingJiishing early, in the. morning and  watching the sun rise.  The smell of freshly baked cookies and  apple pie. ��� '  Reading a good book in bed before turning out the lights.'  Watching hockey on TV and seeing your  team win the cup,  Getting, your allowance and it being a  bit more than you usually get.  Getting a horse after you've been wanting one for a year.

Legion Hall, Lower Road.  past Post Office going east-  WS^XSmMSmSmaSSm  GIBSONS���Talented local drama company, the Driftwood Players, will present an interesting pantomime-cum-reyue  in Gibsons Jan. 11 and 12 entitled Dick'  Whittington Comes to the Sunshine  Coast.  Although based on the traditional British pantomime Dick Whittingon, the production incorporates ,a strong local slant.  Following, is a resume of the action  by Driftwood Players' member John  Burnside.  Pantomime is an old and still flourishing tradition of the British stage. Its  basis is a children's tale adorned with  song and dance and adapted to a local  setting.. This month-the Driftwood Players are bringing the tradition to life on  the Sunshine Coast.'  The story has Dick, a kitchen boy at  the Old'Coats Inn, which is run by'his  two ugly, sisters. Dick is hopelessly in  love ��� with the lovely Princess Alice,  whose father is -the Good King of the  Sunshine Kingdom. The villainous King  Bat of the Isle of Mellon has a mortgage,  hold-over,, the Good King and..plans, industrial' \exploitation of the,' Sunshine  Kingdom. '  He has arranged a marriage between  Alice and Roberto de Creeko of the neighboring Bingo Hall, who is also in his  power. The forces of good are bolstered  by the Good Fairy Queen of the Sunshine  Kingdom and by Dick's magical cat.  The story line was concocted by Gor-  de Hauka, Nest Lewis and John Bum-  side. Gordie is also responsible for the  eight or nine original songs in the production. Ken Dalgleish of Roberts Creek'  is arranging and performing the musical  background; choreography is by the very  capable Ronnie Dunn of Sechelt and Jeremy Young of Roberts Creek is the coordinating dire&tpr.  In addition to the Cat, other leading  roles will feature Nest Lewis as Dick  (a pantomime tradition), with Miss Lewis  also responsible for the costuming; Bruce  Wilson will be "seen. as the Good King;  Mary Livingston is Princess Alice; Allen  Crane sings and acts the villainous Kong  Rat; George Mathews and John Burnside  are seen as Dick's Ugly Sisters; Roy Cline  is the hapless Roberto de Creeko; and  Bonnie' Paetkau will grace the stage as  the Fairy Queen.  The mixture of tuneful, catchy songs;  spirited well-choreographed dances; fantasy and magic; and topical local comment should be entertaining to children  and adults alike. It is hoped, the community will support this ambitious local  project. .  ''..�� Performances will be^giyen this weekend at'the United Church Hall in Gibsons on Friday and Saturday at '8 p.m.  Future performances will be offered in  Sechelt if a hall can be obtained.  Admission will be $1.75 for adults and  75c for old age pensioners and children.  For large families, a family rate will be  available of $3.50 for adults and children  regardless of number. ��� ���  Come ,on out!

Andy told me that it just might.help  the square dance clubs to tell them that  he will be 70 years old come April, 1974,  "so," he said, "it's never too late to join  a fun club like square dancing."

Why, with all that good food that  the square dance ladies bring, the gaiety,'  the-old time music, caller Harry Robertson right in there like a whirlwind with  calls old and new, it was a problem for  me to keep up to him. But I am not going  to tell him. Anyway this had to 'be the  best Christmas square dance yet.  Now, on to square dancing of the present. New Years Eve at St. Hilda's Hall in  THIS New Year's was a "happy" one for  most local" motorists, with few impaired driving charges being laid.  In Sechelt, < RCMP charged only two  drinking drivers and issued two 24-hour  suspensions.'  No impaired charges were laid in  Gibsons, but police handed out one 24-  hour suspension.    '  RCMP credit the heavy government  advertising campaign for keeping drinkers off the roads.  Over the Christmas and New Year  holiday'period, a total of seven impaired  Sechelt was the scene of a very go-go    charges were laid - six in Sechelt and one  group of square dancers. Starting at 8:30     in Gibsons  p.m., with the hall just decorated with  enough color to bring out the New Years  spirit without the usual alcohol. That's  right. Not a drop. But the whole evening  was just a barrel of fun from start to  finish around 3 a.m. Jan. 1, 1974.  Once again Harry and I were kept  quite busy trying to keep ahead of the  dancers with a program of a great variety  of calls, rounds, and just plain ballroom  dancing.  With over three sets in a big circle at  midnight, Auld Lang Syne never had  such an ovation���1974 was here and was  toasted in by a beautiful fruit punch supplied by Gladys and Tom Parish. Then  on to the New Years midnight dinner  smorgasbord style, with tthe many tempting dishes supplied by the many ladies of  the square dance club. And, at this time,  Police are pleased with public response  to their appeals. Local RCMP detachment  spokesman characterized driver- behaviour over the festive season as "terrific".  *��� '.'.:��� ��� .      ���:��y, Mary Tlnkley  ; READERS of The Times may recall that    be celebrating his 97th birthday on Feb. 2.  during Holy Week 1972, a series of    Ed Edmunds hurried '.to Duncan oh. re-  religious lectures at Planetarium Hall in'   ceiving news that his brother Griff .-had ,  Vancouver included one evening devoted'   had a stroke. ' '  to-the work of the Columbia Coast Mission.     '  Speakers were the late Canon Alan  *' Greene who Had been superintendent of  the Mission for 23 years and the Rev.  Eric Powell who had served as rector at  Kingcome Indian  village.. While  Canon  Qreehe showed slides illustrating Bis work  in logging camps and Indian villages up  , and  down  the  coast, the  Rev.  Powell  read extracts from "I heard the. Owl1 call  , my Name,',' Margaret Craven's story^ about  ,the Indians of Kingcome. Her book was*  - dedicated to Eric Powell and. was based t  on the reminiscences of both men.  Emmy award winning director, Daryl  Duke, has now r made the story intp  a  beautiful  and   deeply  moving .film  for  General, Electric Theatre. It was shown  on Channel 12 oh Christmas night when  many people missed it and previously it  was included in the Channel 7 program.  As so many people in'the Bay area can  get only Channel 6, why not write to  CHEK TV asking for this film? It is one  that no coastal resident will want to miss.  On the whole it has been a quiet and  uneventful holiday around the Bay, although a number of people were at their  cottages enjoying the bright sunshine and  the good" fishing. Three sea lions have  been seen around the bay for the past  week, presumably also appreciating. the  easy and good fishing. There were several  New  Year's  Eve, parties,   one  of  which wound up in great style with a  firework display in the wee sma' hours.  Bess Milton, after a long stay in the  Van.

Happy New Year.  Mr. and Mrs. Bob Wickwire, accom-.  panied by Jud and Cynthia, spent the  holidayin Oregon where they visited re-  la tiveifin- Portland, , Salem and, Eugene.  They were able to get enough gas to get  them around, except off Sundays when  all gas stations^ were closed, but they  always had a queque up for it. Even  starting out as early as 7:00 one,morning,  they had to wait in-a line-up of 100 cars  before they, could get a fill-up.  A busy hostess over the holidays has',  been Mrs. Ted Surtees whose guests have ���  been her son John from Vancouver, her1  sister, Mrs. W. H. Gray and her cousin,  Mrs. Irene Richards, both of Cumberland.  The Alex Ellis home has been filled to  overflowing in spite of a frozen water  system.

Another interesting visitor at the Ellis  home   was   Gary  Card  of   Gillies  Bay," -  Texada Island. Gary first came''to Halfmoon Bay from Manitoba six years ago  to visit his friend John Ellis. He liked  our coast so much that he bought the  property at Gillies Bay-where'he now.devotes to writing all the tinie he can spare .  from teaching. He recently returned from'  a holiday in Europe where he covered .  quite a few miles by hitchhiking until he  had a rather unpleasant experience  in  Spain. The "kindly" driver who picked'  him up turned out to be a taxi driver,  who, at the end of the journey, demanded  his pound of flesh. They fought the matter  out at the local police station, but the'  police ruled in favor of the taxi driver. '  After that Gary decided it was cheaper'  to take the train.  He thought Switzerland, and Austria  ,were two of the loveliest countries and  he was impressed with the efficiency of  . Germany, but .Europe generally was too  densely populated for his liking and he is  delighted to be back in Canada where  there is so much space and so few people.

One thing to remember is the fact  that none of this would have been possible at all without all of the square dancers who came from Pender Harbour to  Port Mellon.

"We've  been spending far too much on dumb  things.  Stuff like food; heat,  clothing,  ^telephone and the cars. That's why there's  never anything much left over."  ,  "And just what do you think is the  answer��to this reckless spending of ours?"  "It's really very straight, forward," I  explained! "We'll just'eliminate-the necessities. After all we. have to give up  , something. By foregoing the necessities  we'll have plenty of money left' over' to  buy all the luxuries we've been waiting  for. It's terribly simple."  "So is the author of this impractical  plan," he said. "But I'm always open to  suggestions. How do we start?"  "Well, to begin with you could stop  buying lunch every day. That sacrifice  * alone would-save quite a bit."  "It sounds,okay," he said, "but I have,  this problem, around noon every day I get  hunger  pangs."  "Oh I didn't mean you had to go entirely without food," I said hastily. "I  just want you to stop eating out. You can'  take a nice\lunch from home* something1  like yogurt or a celery stalk, crackers and  raisins." ���     '  "And what other ways do you feel we  could "cut down? he asked.  "You could stop driving the car to  work every day," I said. "That'd save  quite a lot of gas money. You could  thumb a ride" to and from town. It could  . actually prove quite stimulating for you.  Just think of all the people you'd meet  and the countless fascinating conversat- x .  ions you could have. Why, in^no time at'  all you'd probably have enough material -  for a book." > ' ,    .     "      ,  "But I absolutely loathe talking; to*  anyone first thing, in the morning,' he  said. "I enjoy being in my own car, completely alone, listening to my kind of  music." .   z _  "That's being terribly selfish," I said.  "Incidentally, you spend far too much on4  records and tapes.

The measure that c6unts, of -course, is  profit as a percentage of investment. Attempts by some to compare the ^meat  business with the automobile, industry^  the chemical business, the electronics bus-  interesting  supermarkets that reported to the House  Special Committee on Trends in Food  Prices, expressed their profits as a percentage of sales-they were quick to justify <'  their increased prices as a result of higher r  h labor costs, which they very carefully ex-  sg, pressed as a percentage of gross profits,  making the labor costs appear to be very  large.        , r  Terry Crier, one of the NDP MPs. on  the committee pointed out that the com- "  panies were manipulating their statistics  to make the advertising costs seem small  by expressing them as a percentage ,of  sales and to make the taxes seem unbelievably large by expressing them as a  percentage of net profit (after taxes).  Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to get at the actual profit figures that -  are solely attributable to the sale of foods,  due to the conglomerate nature of the  corporations and the fact'that they present their yearly earnings in a consolidated statement. The conglomerate nature  of these corporations also enables them to  easily hide profits from food retailing and  in the case of price freezes to take their  profits from another "source within the  corporate structure.

It you have a question about,  how the'provincial government's new in- ���  . surance plan effects.you, get the answer  by phoning 665-2800 in Vancouver, collect. ,  The Insurance Corporation of'British  , Columbia has trained a staff of telephone  receptionists to answer  questions  about  the Autoplan program, which goes into  effect March 1.  "Because B.C. motorists "are not yet  j_ completely familiar  with  Autoplan,  we  "^"feel our telephone receptionists will be of  great assistance,"-.said Norman Bortnick,  - ICBC's vicepresident and general manager. "They have already answered about  2,000 enquiries from motorists."  He said, ICBC expects a barrage of  questions on vehicle insurance and licensing to start this month.  "We expect this "crunch' period for  our phone receptionists to result from the  mailing of 1.3 million applications for  vehicle insurance and licence renewals.  Ebery vehicle owner in the province"  should receive the applications by mid-  January and we expect many queries on'  these."  /Most of the receptionist's training has  been devoted to their understanding the  motor vehicle insurance and licencing system. The women and men who make up  the information centre's staff have been  .attending lectures and seminars over the  past several weeks.  Because of the many variables iwolyed  in rating a vehicle, the information staff.  will not quote individual rates over the  phone: They will, however, explain the  basic and optional coverages available,  premium financing, claims procedures and  other details.  Questions of a technical nature1 will be  referred to experts in other ICBC departments, v.  The information centre is now open  Monday through Friday, from 8:15 a.m.  to 8 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to  5 p.m. The plan is to remain flexible and  hours will be adjusted according to the.  number of enquiries received. '  So that all motorists are insured by the  March 1 deadline, the information recep-,  tionists will encourage callers to arrange  their insurance early and obtain assistance  from ICBC agents or motor vehicle licence  offices.  Sechelt youth charged  with break-in attempt  SECHELT���Justin Julius of Sechelt appeared at provincial court Jan. 3 charged with attempted breaking and entering.  The offence is alleged -to have taken  place Dec. 5 at the Sechelt home of Joe  Benner.  No plea was entered and the case was  remanded to Jan. 11.  Judge Charles Mittlesteadt set bail at  $500 cash.  People who aren't afraid to roll  their sleeves seldom lose their shirts.  up  YOU can save energy���and money���by  eliminating wasteful household situations such as dripping water taps and  dirty furnace filters, said E. Hensch, manager of B.C. Hydro's Sechelt power dis- .  trict. ' ' ���  ,"A faucet that leaks steadily, even  though, only-slightly, can have a significant effect on the amount of electricity or  other fuel used to heat water," he pointed  out.  ""Frequently, all that is needed is a '  new washer, at a cost of only a few cents.  But  it can save you dollars worth of  energy in the long run."  Hensch has other money-saving suggestions for householders.  Furnace filters should be checked every  two or three months, and replaced at least  every six month's. This is particulary important in a new house., It is also important to realize that if a dirty filter is removed and not' replaced, there is real  danger that dust may penetrate the fan  motor, and cause serious damage. Furnace  filters are inexpensive, but a new motor  is costly.  Similarly, it doesn't make sense to  spend money for insulation to reduce heat  loss from a house, and then leave a fireplace damper open so that the chimney is ���  drawing the heat outdoors.  Turning the thermostat down to about  60'or 62 degrees'during sleeping hours can  reduce the annual heating bill an average  of about 10 per, cent. A setting lower than'  60 degrees may reduce the benefit as the  furnace then has to run longer- in the  morning to bring temperatures up to normal.       ���   * .        '  Some people try to save money by  closing heat vents in the basement. This  may prove costly. A cold basement usually means a cold floor upstairs. If the  floor is cold, occupants of the house tend  to turn up 'the heat, and this increases  fuel consumption.  ���Instant-on television sets use considerably more electricity than slower warm  -up models.  Color television ��� uses more"  power than black and white.  Some customers are surprised to find  that service bills are not significantly reduced while they are away on vacation.  Many forget that most furnace thermostats don't turn completely off, with the  result that some fuel continues to be used.  Also, freezers( refrigerators and instant-  on TV sets continue to burn power.  Best bet is to turn water heaters off  and unplug, instant-on TV sets when you  leave for a vacation.  Winter holidays sometimes result in  higher heating bills than anticipated. One  reason is that heat cannot be turned off  completely during winter months. Also,  if curtains and drapes are left closed, the  The Peninsula Times Page B-3  Wednesday, January 9, 1974  benefit of solar heating during the day-,  time is lost. But,' if drapes and curtains  are left open, the advantage of added insulation over window glass during the  colder hours .of night is eliminated. You  take your choice.  "Similar suggestions, including valuable tips on getting the most efficient service from many household appliances, are  available from B.C. Hydro's customers  advisory services," Hensch said.  "These can be obtained at no cost  through your nearest Hydro district office,  or by writing customers advisory services, B.C. Hydro, Vancouver."  Though it could be a lot worse���suppose-we had to.pay. on what we think  we're worth?  ,  Sunshine Choristers  plan spring concert  SECHELT���The Sunshine Choristers, only a month old and under the direction of'Mrs. Enid Godkin made' their.de- ���  but in a choral festival in St. Hilda's' Anglican Church, ,and at St. Mary's ^Hospital,  Dec. 23. ,'   1#  The Rev.

SURELY the omens for a new r year���at  least climatic ones���have never been  better than they were, for the dawning  of 1974. In the first few hours of its life,  what a magnificently star-filled velvet  sky! And the sun rose, and shone all day  on a sparkling sea and glistening mountain tops, and on the gleaming green of  the forest. Let's hope thev next 12 months  live up to the promise .of these first glorious days! ���  We~ spent part of New, Year's Eve with  Les Fowler, the leader 'of the recently  formed local choir. Quite spontaneously,  he and two other men and two women  who were present began singing a lot of  old favorite tunes in harmony, and what  satisfying music they produced! It must  be such joy to open one's 'mouth and create sounds ,like that.  If the idea of doing so appeals to you,  why not come put and join the choir?  Their meetings are held every Wednesday evening at 7:30 inJ Madeira Park Elementary School. Les tells me there were  rather more men than women present at  the last session, but there is room for singers of either sex. That's tonight at 7:30.  And Pat Kelly tells me that the group  who produced the three plays in December has decided to form a drama club.  Anyone interested in taking part in any  of the' actvities involved in producing I a  play���acting, directing, costume, sets���  is welcome to attend the inaugural meeting. It's, scheduled to take place on Sunday, Jan. 13, at 2 p.m., at John and.Pat  Kelly's home on the Sinclair Bay Road  in Garden Bay. It's hoped that on this  occasion a name will be chosen for -the  group, an executive formed and .consideration given'to producing a play in the  spring.  If your plans for the new year are  concerned with more spiritual things,  you may be interested to know, of the opportunities available locally for religious  observance.  The Rev. Walter Ackroyd 'is conducting services every Sunday at the Pender  Harbour Full Gospel Tabernacle on Lagoon Road, across from the elementary  school playground. Church services are  at 11 a.m.-, and Sunday school at 9:45.  And' there is a prayer meeting every  Wednesday at 8 p.m.  If you plan to attend services at the  Tabernacle, you'll have to walk down the  side of the new church being constructed  on the site to a" side door.  Louella Duncan tells me that this  church has a very active women's missionary group which can make use of  many of the things one normally discards, from used clothing to old Christmas cards. Here's an opportunity for recycling some of the products of our affluent life style.  And Win Course tells me that the Rev.  John Godkin, rector of St. Hilda's Church  in Sechelt, is conducting Anglican church  services here twice a month. They are  held on the first and third Sundays of  each month���so Jan. 20 is the next one���  at 2 o'clock, in the Madeira Park Legion  Hall. Of course anyone of any denomination is welcome to attend.  I got talking to Jim Murray the other  day about the presentation made to him  at a recent social evening held by some  of our volunteer firemen, and he tells ��me  this group has still other plans underway.  Ran into Beth Goodwin the other day.  Beth vis the young mother whose daughter was born aboard the Thasis"^ Jim  Goodwin's tug, last summer���she's a darling baby now, four, months old. Beth and  Jim planned to spend the winter in Ho-  tham Sound, caretaking some property  there, but she tells me high winds and  lack of shelter in the sound forced them  to change their plans, and they're back  . in Egmont for the rest of the winter.  One day last week the Goodwins decided to pay a visit to Jim and Jenni  ��� Nelson, who are wintering in Narrows  Inlet, where they too have a caretaking  job. Jimmy and Jenni (often called Yim-  my and Yenhy because of the Dutch pronunciation of Mrs, Nelson's first name)  and their manx cat will be familiar to  . by Kathleen Yull 883-9068  most of you as the trio who live aboard  the Bilmar. Jim is ��� the ' local Fisheries  man.  ��� Anyway,, the Goodwins made their  (way up through the, Skookumchuk planning to pay a njew year's visit ~ to the' ,  " Nelsons. But the entrance to the inlet  was frozen solid���Beth said the ice was  thick-enough" to walk on wfth safety! So  they/had to turn back" without making  their visit, leaving the Nelsonk in their  ice-bound fastness. _ ' \  Jack Paterson called today to tell me  his interpretation of the word hippy. He  tells me that it originated, as I had suspected, in the '50s. Those who were 'hep'  to the new ways of thinking became 'hep-  sters' and the term was modified to hippies���a loose term covering those who  didn't subscribe to conventional standards. Jack has promised me a fuller re-  1 View of the origin of this social group and  what it stands for sometime soon.  Jack was also able to tell me the  name of a radio ham in North Vancbu-  ver. However, I'd "still like to know of  one on the Peninsula if anyone can help  me. And���back to semantics���there's another word whose origin eludes me. Why  a radio ham? My Webster's failed me on  that one, too.  And now, Twelfth Night is over, and  that Christmas tree that looked so glittering and beautiful in December is beginning to look tawdry in the light of  these bright January days. So I'll close  and go and pack away the decorations for  another year.  From the pulpit  ���by Pastor Gerry Foster,  Gibsons Pentecostal Church  1974. WHAT kind of a year will it be? No  one knows for sure, but there is more  pessimism than optimism in most minds.  There is one event that could occur  in this new year. Jesus said He would return to this earth. He appeared once and  He is going to appear again. "When He  made His first appearance on earth it  was to take away sin. This He did by His  sacrificial death on the cross. The second  coming scripture says, "is to save those  who are eagerly waiting for Him."-  You can have one of three thoughts  on this subject. Firstly, you may be unconcerned about it. Secondly, you may be  looking "forward to Christ's return, or  thirdly, you may be afraid of His coming. I hope you are in the second category, but if not there is something you  can do.  If you are fearful at the thought of  His coming again you are not ready to  meet God. You can be ready by receiving  and trusting in the substitutionary death  of Christ for the -forgiveness of sins.  But if you are in the first group'and  have no concern regarding the return of  Jesus Christ then you are in an awful  condition. The Bible says to you, Wake  up! Be concerned about your eternal destiny. Jesus is coming for-His church. Will  'tf^yoif'be- included?" ^ ���;**.*<-, rw'-*    ,,f -***-  Thieves net cigarettes,  liquor, cash horn Legion  ,  GIBSONS���Thieves broke into the local  Legion hall Dec. 30 and made off with  a quantity of liquor, cigarettes and petty  cash. ���  No value has yet been fixed on the  stolen property.

IS A  BEAUTIFUL PLACE  EACH month, millions of Canadians find  ��� .colorful-brochures inserted in the envelopes with their- family allowance or old  age security cheques from the federal department of' health and welfare.  Most read them, and many act upon  the advice they contain, according to a  recent survey by the department's information directorate which produces the  brochures dealing with a variety of  health and welfare  subjects.  ' The first brochure, mailed last April  with the -family allowance cheques, - describes'"the causes' and symptoms of food  poisoning and - offers some good advice  on how to prevent this unpleasant and  harmful occurrence.        '        _- '~  Toddlers exploring around the home  come under the department's watchful,  eye. A brochure on- how to poison-proof  the home warns of the ever present danger of prescription drugs and medicines  carelessly left within a child's reach.  Some 31,000 incidents involving children  under five are reported each year to poison" control centres across Canada.  Another brochure directs itself to the  overweight citizen, sternly describing bad  eating habits that lead to poor health  and even to disability and death, but  lightens the gloom with some cheerful  and helpful advice on sensible eating and  exercise.  Other topics are water safety; first aid  for the injured; improper use of prescrip-,  tion drugs and medicines; dangers to'  health from smoking; the effects and  dangers inherent in the use of non-medical drugs; physical and social problems  caused through alcohol; and the most recent, the ��� prevention of accidents in the  home.  The close to two million Canadians  who receive old age security cheques are  encouraged to maintain good health and  enjoy a long life through brochures spec-  ficaly written for them. One deals with  physical fitness for the elderly, another  with how to buy and prepare nourishing  "and varied meals on a limited income.  The idea for a' regular series of cheque inserts arose fronT'the success of one  small information insert which last year  announced the publication "A .Parent's  Guide to Drug Abuse". It achieved over  a  million requests from across  Canada.  Many of the topics used in the brochures are obtained as a result of public  enquiries to department- offices across  Canada. Others are suggested by program staff from experience gained in their  service to .Jhe public.  The cost of producing the brochures  is exceptionally reasonable considering  the audience reached, about three million  through family allowances and ,two mill-  The Peninsula Times Page B-5  Wednesday, January 9, 1974  ion through old-age security. The department saves because it does not incur extra postage,'already paid for in the mailing .of the welfare'cheques.  . Although the "brochures are mailed  only to those receiving welfare cheques,  others are not excluded. They, are available at various federal, offices, and a full  set can be obtained" free of charge by  writing to the department's public relations office at 408 - 1177 West Broadway,  Vancouver, B.C.

The resulting cacophony made all three  wince. Mrs. Labonte, who was later reelected chairman,' said: "We'd better all  take elocution classes."  Trustee John MacLeod suggested that,  next time, trustees would be well advised  to read out their oathes separately.  Another amusing item to come out of  the board's inaugural meeting was the department of education's rather unorthodox  spelling of "Queen" on the oathes of  office. Perhaps Eileen Dailly should brush  up on elementary spelling before taking  on administration of the educational system.  TV comic Sam Levenson offered his daug-  ter some sage advice, as related-in his  new book "In One Era and Out the  Other." To Emily he offered several time-  tested, inexpensive beauty hints, when  she was in that doubting nearly-teen  bracket. Here they are:  For attractive lips, speak words of  kindness.  For lovely eyes, seek out the good in  people. '  For a slim figure? 'share your food  .with the hungry.  For beautiful hair, let a child run his  fingers through it.  For poise, walk with the knowledge  that you never walk alone.  And then Sam had a final bit of advice for his newly-arrived grand-daughter, Georgia:  "We leave you a tradition with' a future. The tender, loving care of human  beings will never become obsolete. People  even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, redeemed, and redeemed and redeemed. Never  throw out anybody. Remember, if you  ever need a helping hand, you'll find one  at the end of your arm. As you grow  older, you will discover that you have two  hands. One is for helping yourself, the  ,other for helping others. Your "good old  days" are all ahead of you���may you  have many of them!"  , . And tempos fugits to eberyone who  thought^they would be on daylight saving  time now.  Page B-6   .       The Peninsula Times      Wednesday, January 9, 1974  Health Unit director says . . .,  SIXTY-SEVEN people died of heart, attacks  in the Coast-Garibaldi  Health  Unit area last year, director Dr. Alistair  Thores has announced.  .But he feels- the majority of these  deaths .could. have been prevented or  reduced in, severity if the' victims had  followed a few simple health rules.  "The most important message for the  majority of Canadians is that heart disease  is preventable and that our way of life is  causing it to increase," he said.  "While coronary disease has1 many  causes, it seems ceitain that our tendency  to reduce physical activity to a minimum  as a result of our life style and to eat  possibly just a little more than we require  in terms of calorie intake is leading to the'  great increase in the incidence and the  death rate fromcthis condition."  The director stressed the need for regular exercise, "certainly not carried ,to  the point of exhaustion, but sufficient to  maintain good heart and lung function,  ' combined with just a moderate reduction  of calorie intake."  He felt these steps would do a great  deal to insure a longer and healthier  future for Canadians.  "Those most at risk are men entering'  their forties and fifties. Whatever the  difficulties of dietary discretion or of  achieving a mild amount of exercise,  they are very slight compared with the  dire consequences of heart disease." *  Dr. Thores advised middle aged men  to   consult  the   advice   offered   in   the  Nutrition Canada report, which carries  useful hints on preventative measures  against 'heart .disease.  "The report also zen/es-in on dietary^  inadequancies in pregnancy and that a  . significant,percentage of pregnant women  do show certain signs of various deficiencies," said Dr. Thores."  "The-answer to this would seem" to  be more' intensive educational preparation for1 pregnancy and better supervision of ,the pregnant woman up to and  beyond delivery." -'  . The director said that the Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit was taking immediate'  steps to publicise information contained  in the Nutrition Canada report.  The unit is "encouraging physical activity programs; weight control programs;  attempting- to establish a nutritional counselling service and, obtain a qualified nutritionist for this purpose; placing increased emphasis on pre-natal nutritional education during the course of pre-natal  ' classes and reaching out to contact mothers who are nutritionally at risk and  sometimes do not attend these pre-natal  classes.  Dr. Thores said his unit was also exploring the possibilities of emphasizing  nutrition education throughout the school  curriculum.  "We welcome interest by individuals  and community groups in this most important subject,'.' he said.  - Wife to returning fisherman: "Gesund  heit! What else' did you catch?"
