The council earmarked $1,000 for  gravelling,the road over the winter months.  They noted the road had been ihe .centre of  some complaints received.  Aldernan Ted Osborne suggested the  council would best spend the money by  gravelling the worst spots on the road, "to  keep building them up."  / He said, "my only recommendation is to  keep the road patched up and put shoulders  on it. When spring comes you can widen it."  The $1,000 is to be spent over four months. -  Essentia J services operation ...  6��enfl*nK8ra^  local elected bodies.  He said everyone present had agreed on  the;need for centralized facilities and band  spokesman had said they had a suitable piece  of land for the installation.  "All we need is approval from the oil ���  companies," said Hoehne.        ' ,  Tlie regional board and Sechelt and  Gibsons village councils have been pressing  the oil .companies for some time to centralize  their oil storage tanks in one location.  "The oil companies have been bucking it  for years," said Hoehne, "but the regional  board has said 'no more expansion' on the  present" sites."  Mayor Larry Labonte asked if the,  location proposed by the Indian Band was the  most desirable.  "I doubt whether this is the best place,"  said Aid. Stuart Metcalfe. "Anchorage for  ships in the Sechelt area is exposed. The oil  companies may strenuously-oppose it."  But he felt Gibsons should not be concerned about any problems encountered by  the oil companies, "as long as they get out of  the village.'"  Metcalfe said the proposed relocation of  oil storage facilities would have no effect on  the cost of the product.  The matter was discussed again at the  Sunshine Coast Regional District meeting  December 19.  Chairman Frank West described the  meeting as, "an ongoing discussion on oil  Sffitertifiefcsre^  While most Sunshine Coast residents are  tucking into their annual-Christmas day  dinner,,others; will be on the job as usual,  maintaining essential services in the area.

Tho owner, Jack McNutt, had just left for  a Christmas vacation in the Ulterior and  Mexico. The trailer was being rented out ot  an unidentified young woman, who escaped  without injury.  Fire chief Tom Robilliard said two units  and approximately 14 men responded to the  alarm, which came in at 2:20 a.m.  * Cause of the blaze is not yet known, said  Robilliard, but his department is investigating.  An explosion heard during the fire was  probably caused by an aerosol spray can, he  said.  .    v  Provisional budget  sefc-at $71|,000  /    The Sunshine Coast Regional ��� District's  provisional budget for 1075 raised its head In  jjouncll nnd then was shuffled off to com-  -^mlttce.

Please submit your entry oh a plain sheet  of paper with your name, address and phone*  number clearly printed on it. Any duplicate  suggestions will be put in a draw and one  name pulled. "    -  THANKS TO THE TEENAGERS  I had a mother phone me and ask if I  would like to mention how helpful some of the  young people are about helping^ the small  children on the, ice. There are a group of  mothers who come to skate and they really  apprecitate it when some else takes their  small kiddies and gives them a hand. This,  gives mom a few minutes to herself so she  can get some skating in. so thank you, kids.  DRAW COMING UP  If you still have ticket stubs to turn in  before the draw, please get them in now. The  draw will be held on New Year's Eve and all  the tickets sold or unsold books have to be  returned before that time.  The ladies have been busy and have  decorated a tree in the lobby and put up some  Christmas decorations. It looks very festive.  Speaking of Christmas, I was at the  Sechelt School last week to see the beautiful  3 EH  Christmas pageant the kids put on. and I was  thinking how nice it would be if it could have  been on ice with lots of seating capacity for  everyone to be able to see. I guess some of it  would have been impossible on skates, but,  instead of acrobats, they could substitute  figure skating. I can hardly wait until our  figure skaters are good enough to' put on  something as lovely as that Christmas play.  I hope everyone cut out the^ skating  schedule from .last week's paper for, the  holidays. As you know, curling is over till the  New Year and there are specific public  skating hours. Also, don't forget that adult  skating sessions are now two hours-long on  Saturday nights.   - , '.  When I requested bringing along good  skating music to skate to in an earlier  column, I wanted good skating music, not  good listening music. I noticed there are a  bunch of records in the sound room that are  -Jovely for listening and dancing too, but they  must have been brought in by someone who  doesn't know how to skate to music because  they certainly aren't fast enough. If it is no  good to skate to, please don't bring it in,  because that just makes more work to sort  through for good records.  Did you know there are still people  working out at the arena who are giving their  time for free? Things might be open for  business, but there are still odd jobs to be  done and it is nice to know there are people  ���*-:>.  125  \ 0400 '  13.1 "  .js ' 0605  15.2  WE  , 0755  ,12.0  'SA  1045  12.1.  1255  14.3  1530  714.7  r- 2050 '  -3.4.  2300  1.2  26  - 0445.  14.0  29  0635  15.7  TH  0905'  12.2  SU7 H35  11.9  1345  14.4  1620  14.7  f  v2135  2.4  2340  1.0  ?7  0525  14.7  30  0715  16.0  FR  0955 '  12.3  MO 1230  11.4  ' 1435  14.6  1710  14.4  2215  1.7  -  A   31  0025   '1.4  ^  Jf    FU  0750  16.3  1  > 1320  10.6  ^  k  /1805  13.8/  \ *:  N  .:**���  i.-i.

' ar-    ^ ' 1 *  Happenings around the Harboiir  I "came to a big decision a couple of weeks"  ago. I used to write my column longhand then  rely on Marge or-anyone else I could con into =  typing it.  -   No more. Yours truly toilg^^jLafca^sr  W%l!8B*B&*&e&8fflffi a little typing  aa55fC.��s=33si^|js ag^ ^ thg offtcg where I worked. The  . .. rest of the staff, obviously jealous of my  dexterity, used to call me "Two-finger Sam'.  I must be getting my old touch'back. Just '  the other day when'I was tapping away  happily my better half, after watching me  with what must have been awe, placed a jug  * of water within reach. When I questioned her  ' about it she looked at me with obvious admiration and said it's to cool the keys with  ' when they get too hot..  Sure,nice<to have a thoughtful wife! I  guess that's enough blarney for now ��� back  __   to business.  /    EXPLETIVE DELETED  Do you remember the article I wrote  ,' recently about the cussing pot in the Garden  Bay Hotel? Well, President Jean Paterson of  the Ladies Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital  called to tell me how the latest donation from  the pot was spent.  - The hospital .will receive five children's  , walkers and two baths. You know what the  walkers are ��� round things on wheels which  support the kids while they are learning' to  . walk and support the peace of mind of  mothers.   ' ,    ���  Jean said a lot of credit must go to Al  Christie of the hotel who looks after the pot,  and of course to the gentlemen who let their  lips slip now and again.  NOWAY,  A terrible thing happened to me the other  day. I was writing'a note to Santa and Marge -  saw it and with a few words shattered my  .dream.  "No dice buddy," she said, "Santa doesn't  have a toy pickup at the Pender Harbour  ' Hotel!" Oh well-^I suppose I'll have to  settle for carpet suppers again.  CHRISTMAS PARTY  Children having fun are a joy to behold  and when you include Santa Clause the  combination is irresistable.  , I was at Ihe hall here in Madeira Park  where the local Community Club held the  party and there was over one hundred eager-  'eyed children breathlessly awaiting Santa's  arrival.  In the interval they Tyere entertained with  Christmas carols played by the Pendfer  Harbour Community Band, directed by  Florence Prescesky and also saw some film  cartoons.  I was laughing so hard at the cartoons  that one little guy didn't know whether to  look at-me or the screen!  Anyway, along came Santa to make his  big appearance and the kids whooped. Pretty  soon he was seatedby the beautiful Christ-  *mas tree and the littleones'lined up to sit on  his knee and have their pictures taken as  they each received a bug of goodies.  Alvin Dribnenki took the pictures for the  Club and if Alvin's trigger finger is sore after  the many shots he took ��� think of poor old  Santa ���I bet he'll see flashing lights for  days!  Santa resembled Pat Logue and did a,  beautiful job. He was patience itself with the  youngsters and deserves the utmost credit  for his portrayal. ,  The gingerbread house which had been on  display in the Royal Bank was drawn for and  the winner was Judy Charbonneau.  It was a grand party and thanks go out to  master of ceremonies Mark Myers and the  ladies of the club who toiled behind the  scenes doing the jobs which most of us take  for granted but are vital to thq success of an  affair such as this. Namely Ruth Kobus,  Joyce Duff, Muriel Stiglitz and Myrtle Page.  The attractive Christmas murals on the  walls were by Yoga Zudema.  Party contributions were received with  thanks from the Fishermen's Union, the  ' Garden Bay Hotel, Pender Harbour Lions, '  Royal Canadian Legion Branch 112 and Its  Ladles Auxiliary, the local Credit Union ,  y Branch, IGA, Kelly's Kosy Kitchen and Uie  Teen Dance Committee.

As you know by now I prattle on at times;  but I do have a serious side which shows now  and again, I'd like to finish this column on  that note.  TOMORROW  Who among us does not feel a thrill of .  anticipation at the thought of tomorrow?  Sure, I know as everyone does, that  Christmas is being over commercialised  year by year; but one has to try to overlook  that facet of it and concentrate on the true  meaning of the day.  I am not the most constant church-goerTn'  the world but here is the way Christmas  affects me..  To me it is a time tp renew ties with  family and friends, to try and give a little  ' pleasure to those I unfortunately see seldom  throughout the year. To share a cup with'  neighbours and enjoy their company and  conversation ��� to say hello and try to  resolve differences with someone I don't  really see eye to eye with and perhaps to try  ' and help a person in need.  I know you are probably saying to  yourself Christmas is making him sentimental. Fine, if that is so we could use more  of it. And if some magic time that feeling  persists and stays with me so I can live it all  ��� year round, I'll be a vastly better man for it.  Merry year round Christmas to you all.

Here a young resident  finds a warm lap to sit in and also finds,  the exercise rewarding. Santa Claus  came to the party courtesy of Pat  Logue.  A motorist who ignored a 24-hour roadside  licence suspension and drove home was fined  $350 and banned from driving for three  months, when he appeared at Sechelt  provincial court Dec, 19.  Crown prosecutor Hugh McCallum said  that Clifford Johnson was stopped by police  in Port Moody Sept. 15 and given a roadside  suspension for driving under the influence of  alcohol. Half-an-hour later, he was stopped in  Burnaby, where police discovered that he  was driving while under suspension.  Johnson pleaded guilty to the charge. -  Judge J.S.P. Johnson fined him $350 and  suspended his licence for three months.  _ Accused .said he would lose his job if he  was banned from driving.     .  "This is what happens to people who drive  under suspension," said Judge Johnson.  FINED $50  In other court news, Verne Berger was  fined $50 for driving without due care and  attention.  McCallum said that accused was checked  by police near Powell River after he lost  control of his vehicle on the slippery  pavement, sideswfped a, power pole and  crashed at the side of Highway 101. He had  been travelling at 45 m.p.h. in a 30 m.p.h.  zone before the incident, said McCallum.  , Berger appeared to have been drinking,  said the prosecutor, but a breathalyzer test  could not be administered because he was  ' taken to hospital for treatment to injuries  sustained in the accident.  ASSAULT  Gary Ridynski of West Sechelt was found  guilty after trim of common assault against  Howard Joe.  The incident occurred on Sechelt Indian  Reserve in October.  Judge Johnson granted Ridynski a conditional discharge. Hey as ordered not to go  onto reserve property-for six months.

Donald Andrew Westersund, 27, pleaded  guilty to the charge which was laid by Jim  Murray, owner of the Holiday Market,  following ' an   incident   Oct.   $ behind.,.  Westersund Chemists in the Pender Harbour  Shopping Centre. '  J ,  Crown prosecutor Hugh McCallum, told  the court that Murray was awakened at  around 1 a.m. by a car horn...  , "He thought it was Westersund's car  horn" said McCallum.  ��� About ten minutes later, Murray heard  approximately nine shots being fired, said  McCallum.  The prosecutor explained that Murray  lived across an alley from the rear, of  Westersund's pharmacy.  . "He (Murray) looked out and saw  Westersund standing in the alley with a  lever-action rifle. He saw him fire three  shots."  Then, Murray called the police.  When police arrived at the rear of the  pharmacy, they knocked on the door for  about seven minutes, before being admitted,  said McCaUum.  "Westersund asked who was there and the  police officers identified themselves," said  the prosecutor. Then the officers claimed to  have heard a rifle being loaded.  - McCallum said that when Westersund  opened the door, he was naked and carried a  rifle. The officers told him to drop the gun  and put up his hands.  The rifle, a 30-30 lever-action, was loaded  and cocked, with one round in the chamber  and two in the magazine, court was told. v  McCallum said that Murray had been  disturbed before by gunfire in the early hours'  of the morning.  Defence lawyer L.N. Mathieson said  Westersund was a qualified and licenced  pharmacist. He explained -that' there had  been a number of instances of vandalism  near his client's pharmacy and a break-in  during the summer in which some drugs  were stolen.  A bus drop box behind Westersund's store  had also been broken into, he said.  Westersund claimed that, on the night in  question, he heard someone prowling behind  his pharmacy, said Mathieson. When he went  outside to investigate, "he heard someone  scurrying off through the bush" and felt they  were not there for a legitimatepurpose, "or  ' they would not have scurried off."  , Westersund fired his rifle into the air,  "hopefully to deter people from vandalism or  breaking and entering."  . -' Mathieson said, there had been a personal  dispute between Westersund and the complainant.  He said his client's actions "should be  dealt with in a lenient way." He conceded  that the discharge of the rifle was technically  r a crime under the criminal code, "but not a  seriousThreach of the common good of the  community." "He admitted that when  Westersund greeted the police officers at his  door in the nude, "it showed some degree of  recorded message." ��� ������ - - '���  Westersmdmaffitanedlhat half-an-hour '  elapsed between bis arrival at the pharmacy  that night and the shooting incident, not 10  minutes as Murray had claimed. And he  denied firing as many as nine shots.  - . He told the court that his rifle was, empty  when the police arrived at his store. *  1    McCallum said he was, "disturbed at the  sort of mentality that is behind the incident."  Judge J.S.P. Johnson granted Westersund  a conditional discharge,' ordering him not to  possessfirearms for two years and to be of  good behaviour for the same period.  He described Westersund's actions' and  attitudes as "eccentric" and said that if  accused was allowed tohave firearms, he  could possibly hurt someone else or himself."

Page A-3  * Wednesday, December 25,1974 ���  Speaking on his own behalf, Westersund  said he did not believe at the time that it was  police officers who were at his door. "I  thought it was the vandals." And he maintained "what difference does it make if  you're in the nude or not'?"       *  He said he had attempted to caU the police  after he heard suspicious sounds outside the  pharmacy, but he received no reply or a pre-  To all our friends from Gibsons's  Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital A  sincere thanks to alLwho donated  to the hospital fond instead of  local Christmas cata%  Mrs. Devina Bolderson, Sally  Thompson, Mrs. Scott, Mrs.' Oney  DeCamp, May Lovell, Marguerite  Myers, Mrs. E.

The wedding took  place in the Gibsons United Church. It was a  double ring' ceremony with Reverend James  Williamson officiating.  ' The colour scheme was pink, mauve and  NORTH VANCOUVER��� Former residents  of the Sunshine Coast Mr. and Mrs. Ernest  White recently celebrated their fiftieth  wedding anniversary.  A fariiily dinner was held at the Hyatt  Airport Hotel December 7 to honor the couple  who are presently living in North Vancouver.  The   couple's   three   sons,   Eric   of  white. The bride wore a long sleeved, prih-  cess-line, floor-length gown. It was floor  lengthed entrained. The bodice was covered'  in white lace and the veil was white lace  edged. Her bouquet was of pink roses and  white baby chrysanthemums. The attendants carried pink carnations.  The matron of honour was Mrs. Graham  Allen, older sister of the bride.'

The hall,' iii keeping with the  color scheme was decorated in pink,  mauve and white.  The wedding cake was three-tiered, with a  square bottom tier and round top tiers with  pink and mauve clusters of sweet peas accenting the white icing. ���     <  The table was decorated with candles and  two small vases of pink carnations.  Butch Ono, the uncle of the bride,  proposed the bridal toast.,  The mother of the bride wore'a blue, long  Coquitlam, Ralph of Victoria and Robert of    sleeved, V-necked, floor length, crepe dress,  Come' gather roond and listen, while  I tell ye a'the tale,;  O' oor iJnited Church men and  .

North Vancouver, their three daughters-in-  law and three of their grandchildren were in  attendance.  Telegrams and messages of congratulation were received from Governor-  General Leger, Prime Minister Trudeau, and  the Honorable Rhn Basford as well as personal letters from Robert Stanfield and MP  Ron Huntingdon.  Mr. and Mrs. White moved to B.C. from  Prince Edward Island in 1930 and lived in  West Vancouver until 1956 when they retired  accented with a corsage of pink carnations.

Mr, H.E. Nelson was the' master of  ceremonies and the band that played at Uio  reception wore the "Penn Kings".  Federal Energy Minister Donald Macdonald has given the go-ahead for traditional  Christmas lighting this season.  In response to a brief from the Christmas  Decoration Division of the. Canadian Toy  Manufacturers Association, Macdonald  confirmed that: "there is no reason to single  out Christmas lights as a special target for  energy conservation efforts during the  coming heating season".  Macdonald said that the program of  Christmas lighting on Parliament Hill will be  undertaken this year,  The Industry brief pointed out that  Christmas lighting received unfair public  attention last year as a largely symbolic  vehicle for introducing energy conservation  awareness nnd that no other industry was  singled out ln such a way.

The conversation, wrhicb  took place in a local coffee shop, was  rather one-sided and went like this.  "I've had it." '.     _  '���  "Had what?"  "This Christmas stuff."  "What do you mean?"'  ''This is the last year I'm giving  gifts."  '��� "You're kidding."  .    "I'm not."  "Why would you stop giving gifts."  ' "I'm sick and tired of hustling  around, fighting off the crowds to, buy  something for someone just because  they got me something last year and  they probably ,will again this .year.-  I'm sick of marching into January  ffcit broke because I bought a whole  bunch of things and gave them to people  who don't really - appreciate them  because they probably didn't fit or they  don't need them. I'm sick of getting  things that don't fit and that I don't  need. I'm sick of seeing all that money  going to;wa_ste.'il _r -  y "What are you going to do about it?"  - "Next year I'm going to take out my  cheque book and I'm going to'write a  ��    o,  ��    -    -    ,       ���  > > *  cheque to CARE OR UNICEF or The  Unitarian ' Service Committee or  someone like that. I'm going to make it  out, for two or three hundred dollars and  I'm going to send a list of names along  with it; the names of the people to whom  I would have sent presents. I'm going to .  ask the organization to send a card to  them saying that in lieu of receiving a  gift from me a donation of food has been  made to the hungry.''  * The man sat back on his chair and  added, "and then I'm going to sit back  and enjoy Christmas."  Despite the fact that 'tis the season to  be jolly, we find it a little disheartening  that many people are looking for a way-  to put a little enjoyment back into their  Christmas.  We find ourselves agreeing with the  . man in the coffeeshop. If your Christmas seems to have lost its meaning, it's  real meaning, go back to the basics.  Examine what Christmas means and  what it should mean to you.     '    "  Drop by your neighbourhood church/  They will be glad to give you a refresher  lesson in the basics^  After all, isn't that what it's really all  about?  I SEE the Christmas spirit lurking around  here waiting to pounce on unsuspecting  people at the drop of a sugarplum.  Yesterday $ young lady was standing on  the highway hitchhiking outside the office  and a police car stopped and gave her a  ride.  THIS,IS the last of The Times this year  and the eighth edition since I came here. It's  been an educational and encouraging two  months.lt/has also been very enjoyable.  While a couple of people have gone out of  their way to make these two months difficult, -  I'm happy to say that I'm really enjoying it  and I like it here. I'm looking forward to  writing many more Christmas columns.  i I've encountered a whole lot of really nice  people through my work here so far. People  have gone out of their way to make my work  easier because they know it's tough for a  person to come into a new job in a new town  and I want them to know I really appreciate  what they're doing and have done.  '. ONE GROUPS who~I think need special  mention is our correspondents who stretch  from Egmont to Port Mellon.  They're nice people and they care about  what goes on in their community. They want  others to know about the winnings and the  losings in their area, so they supply us with  news,. We appreciate what they are doing, I  hope they know that.  THAT ALSO goes for the amazing  collection of regular contributors, everyone  from Maurice the Square Dancer to Helen  the Historian. Without them it would be a  little harder to bring out a newspaper which  Js representative of the many facets of life  here on the Sunshine Coast.  , After all, that's what a newspaper Is for. A  good newspaper accurately ,rcflects the  communities It serves. That's the whole  ralson d'etre behind them.  That's also the job we try to do, With the  co-operation of local people, and we do get  great co-operation, we can do it better.  That's why we appreciate our little army of  correspondents and tho even bigger  movement of people who will phone us at the  drop of a hint that there's a story brewing.

I know some people who consider it a  real chore to put on some Christmas spirit/  Hopefully they don't live here.  - ��� I would like to see every one of us consider  our job, our duty to carry a little Christmas  spirit into next year.  For Georgie and I this is going to be a very  special Christmas. Not only is it our first  Christmas in Sechelt, but it is our first  Christmas together.  TONIGHT is Christmas Eve. I can  remember being about four or five years old  and staring out my bedroom window in a  Fraser Valley farmhouse waiting for Santa  Claus to appear. I always fell asleep waiting,  although once I thought-1 saw him. I was  sure. Now, looking back, it may have been a  falling star. Maybe.  I want to tell you about--one magical  Christmas Eve a few years ago. It was late at  night, probably around 10 p.m. I was home  from college for Christmas and I was sitting  in the living room. The drapes were open and  I had all the lights off in the house but.the  Christmas tree lights. I was sitting, looking  out the window. Lights were twinkling behind  me in the room and colored lights lit up the  front lawn and the houses across the street  were bathed In multicolored lights.  I can only remember one year when it  snowed at Christmas. That was the year I got  my first bicycle. I was in Grade Two and the  whole community was snowed in and it was a  couple of months before I could ride it.  It just doesn't snow at Christmas In the  Fraser Valley. Rain It do; snow It don't.  I don't know how long I was sitting, gazing  out the window. It must have been getting  near to midnight when it started to snow. I  can still remember what it looked like and  how happy I felt, That was a most amazing  Christmas. Christmas Day dawned with  three Inches of snow on everything. Two days  later, it was gone,  ENOUGH of that. Tonight Is Christmas  , Eve and tomorrow is Christmas,  l! hope everyone of you has a very special  Christmas this, year.

It's a moral cause."  He said Gibsons did not participate in any  other of the regional district functions.  " The aldermen said he would press at the  regional board's next meeting for inclusion  in the final budget of. a breakdown of the  costs assessed against Gibsons.  In other news, council backed a recommendation from Aid. Bill Laing to drop  power costs to users of the federal wharf  -from $15 per month to $5 per month for  boatowners using the power only for electric  lights and to $8 per month for users with  present rate of $15. per month, Aid. Stuart  Metcalfe felt it would' be inappropriate to  drop the rates even lower. ���>  Laing said that the decreased rates should  be tried for three months. Then council could  present boat users with the power bills and a  fair rate could be worked out. ^  Mayor Larry Labonte noted that the  village was providing free fire protection for  wharf users.

This gift is the giving of ourselves, not  grudgingly or routinely or because we have  to, but rather because our hearts overflow  with love that must be shared with others..  Such giving is evidenced in unself ed love, the  compassion for those less fortunate, the kind  word or deed that gives' hope and encouragement. '  Christ Jesus showed us how to give. H|s  whole life was an immeasurable gift of love,  Materially, he had little to share with those  who followd him. Yet he gave the best gift of  all ��� the giving of himself through daily  living of his true selfhood or character ��� not  material but spiritual ��� which reached the  receptive thought and were refreshed, the  sick were healed, sinners were regenerated.  In "Science and Health with Key to. the  Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy, the  Discoverer and Founder of ..Christian  Science, writes (p. 470), "Man is the expression of God's being."  As we turn to divine Love in humble  prayer, wo receive Love's unfailing inspiration to do the useful, unselfish, and  loving thing which will accomplish the most  good for those ready to receive what we have  to glyo.  If at this Chrlstmastldo wo feel wenry of  the world, If the commercialism of tho  season seems to have put out tho glow, let us  give the best gift of all. Let us take tlie time  and the thought to give of ourselves, to express with our giving, tlie tenderness nnd  1 warmth of divine Love. Then our giving will  , not bo shallow;, It will not bemomentary but  will truly reflect tlio tender love'and com-  ' passion of  htm whoso  birth wo commemorate. Such giving Includes, Its own  ��� blessing. It breaks old bonds that fetter us ���������  long-held grievances, resentments, self-pity  and hurts, It opens tho way for renewed Joy  ond opportunity to flow Into our lives.  When wo give of ourselves ��� Uio best gift  of all ��� Christmas becomes a continuing  experience. As tho Master said (Luke 0: 3_),  "Glvo, and It shall be given' unto you; good  measure,   pressed   down,, and   shaken  The law and you  --     ~            - --' i  -    -1     -     -      i   -    i-n     -      ������ ii.  -     i     i  -__,,    .  By Cpl. Dorrell Prico  NCO l/c Gibsons RCMP detachment  This will be last of the series that was  .started some time ago. It is hoped that some  of you have a better understanding of some of  ���the laws and "some of the procedures that we  the Police must follow.  I also hope that you have enjoyed this  short series. I would like to point out that  copies of all statutes are available to you by  writing to the Queen's Printer in Victoria.  This being the last of the series, I do not  intend quoting and explaining any law this  time. I would just like to repeat briefly what I  have been saying for the past couple of  weeks. At this time of year, rtadblocks  have been In place since Dec. 13. Up to Dec.  16 the Gibsons Detachment have charged  five persons with drinking and driving offences and have suspended three drivers for  24 hours. /  The road checks will continue until after  the New Year and I would be pleased if the  number of charges would decrease, however  It doesn' look like lt will.  As I have pointed out before, any conviction for drinking tftid driving offences  causes a financial burden on any family  especially around ��� the p festive season.  However, I would rather be responsible for  arresting you for Unpaired driving before  you become involved in an accident than  investigating an accident In which somo  Innocent person is killed and the cause wns  because you were drinking.   ���.  The loss of a loved one at any time of tlie  year Is n. very traumatic experience,  however, at tills time of year seems to have  more of animpaco' than ever.'You' have  i bought tholr Christmas present for them, nnd  then all of a sudden, th,oy are gone, now what  do you do with Uielr present?  Please don't drive wl>eti you have been  drinking, take a taxi or have a sober friend  drive you home.

Friends and families will be celebrating at  parties, gathering in homes and,driving'to  visit people; ' * -     -  The motor vehicle branch warns: "All of  the joy and excitement of thelseason can turn  to .instant tragedy when an accident  strikes ��� an accident caused <by excessive  drinking, < poor driving conditions or many  other reasons." 7 ;f  According tolheMVB, the following are  SENIOR CITIZENS No. 69 in Sechelt  were treated to their annual dinner in  the Old Legion Hall December 19. The  Seniors were treated to a meal and  entertainment.        ���    1  B  Mi  \fe^y  THERE WAS good food and plenty of it  at the Senior Citizens annual Christmas  dinner in Sechelt. Following .the meal  there was entertainment and draws.' -  BY ROBERT FOXALL  Your reporter has found a strong reason  for envy. I am the kind of man who can walk  from the kitchen table to the refrigerator and  by the time I open the door forget what J  came to get. But Thursday afternoon we witnessed, performances by two entertaining  Seniors, Olive Clear and Charles Brookman  who gave recitations without the aid of  prompters or cue card that to this listener  were real feats of memory. The occasion was  Senior Citizens No. 69 annual Christmas  Dinner held at the Old Legion Hall. We  started promptly at noon. '  Before starting President Hugh Duff  introduced Jack Mayne a long time member  and read a cable of wishes received from  Adele DeLango who is visiting in England.  Then after Pros. Hugh bad had given thanks  for tho benefits of tlio past year and expressed hopes for peace and good health wo  tucked Into a true Christmas dinner of turkey  , nnd ham and all the fixings.  7   Catered by Uio Ladles of St. Hilda's;  Church, I am sure it will bo tho criterion for',  all tltcrest of our dinners during the festive  season, At the appropriate tlmo during tho  dinner president Hugh called on Jack Mnyno  to mako tho Toast to "Tho Queen".  ��,��������,* AtyQk 0.W sc^yltours ha4.��n opportunity^,,  clear the tobies Davo Hayward was called  upon to Instnl the Officers for 1975. Sworn  Into office wcro president Emory Scott, first  vice-president  Robert' Foxall,   secretary  Elisabeth Derby, treasurer tao Hopper,  directors Molly Hamilton, Margaret Hcnschko and Joan Sherlock. Second vice-  president Jack Dushnell was unablo to bo  present and will bo Installed at a later date,  Afton Uio Installation of officers, draws  were held for three donated articles, The  first, a rug wqs tho Joint effort of Joan  Sherlock and Irono nnd Hugh Duff. This  much sought after prize was won by Mrs. L,  Campbell, A painting on velvet donated by  Continental Coiffures went to Reg Smcnrcs  and the box spring nnd mattress, tho gift of  .....Santa Joo .Bonner .went,to Mrs. Francos  Taylor. v  After these drawings Entcrtalmmcnt  Chnlrmafit Walter James brought on Chns.  Brookmanwho after tolling a story recited a  story of the fien, entitled,JTlio Whllost Man I  Know1 ahd for an oncoro 'Tlio Gamo of Life'.  Olive C^eor then rehdorcd 'Glvo Mo nn Old-  Fnshloncd Christmas' nnd then 'My  .Rorro'vlnit Wolrhhour', TI10..0 performers,  tho HubJoutH ol'.my envy, druw enthusiastic  applause,  Noxt Walter Introduced the Sunshlrio  Choristers under the direction of Mrs. Enid  Godkin who gave us great pleasure with their  repetoire of Christmas Carols and who led us  in group singing.  As I have said so many times, Sechelt can  be very proud of the talented artists who so  freely bring great pleasure to music lovers  on the Peninsula. After the singing tables  were pushed back and the balance of the  afternoon was spent in dancing under the  guidance of new president Emory Scott with  Al Farris lending assistance. The group  broke up with a hearty exchange of Yuletlde  wishes.'  Wine on the tables for dinner was a gift  from Mrs. J. Churchill, a former resident  nnd member who keeps in touch through  liavlng the Peninsula Times mailed to her  new home in Toronto,  Your reporter takes this opportunity of  extending Best Wishes to All,  The Sunshine Coast's minibus got another  Christmas present this week.  Sunshine Motors of Sechelt and Gibsons  have donated 100 gallons of gas to the  'minibus. <  The minibus is used for transporting'  persons who do not have, any form of;  transportation available to them for medical  or other purposes.  Sechelt News  ���by Peggy Connor  ~    Well this is the last column for 1974. '  It has been a good year; had its ups and  downs; but life would be pretty dull if it went  along on an even keel.   '  Thanks to all who contributed their news  and to those who generously let their name'  appear as news of their, comings and goings ,  came to my attention.   , ~  Miss" 'Lorraine.. Moffat flew home from:  Lavorno Italy, that is from Rome to. Montreal  to Vancouver as the plane flies. Her luggage  was not as fortunate as Lorraine; it took a  few days longer. With six weeks holiday this  will give her plenty of time to see all friends  and relatives.  Lorraines parents Stan and Helen Moffat  of Sechelt will miss part of her visit as they,  along with Mrs. Thelma MacLean are off to  Reno and Los Vegas returning in time to see  ' the New Year in at home.  Quite the travellers these Moffats, Helen  has only just returned from Prince George,  where there was 14 inches of snow but plenty  of warmth in'her welcome from daughters  Elaine and Kit, son-in-law Ken Robinson and  grandson Craig.    i  , The Christmas Pageant held at Sechelt  Elementary SchooUwas bigger and better  than last year and mat is saying something  as last years was most entertaining.     , . t  Congratulations to Sam Reid and his,crew  of teachers and pupils. The whole school  had to be in on this excellent production.  Merriest of Christmas to all and a Happy  New Year.'  PORT MELLON ��� Rita Hincks has been  elected president of the Port Mellon  Auxiliary to St; Mary's Hospital.  ~ She was elected at the auxiliary's annual  general meeting December 11 in Langdale. It  will be her second term.  At the meeting, committee reports  showed that although the auxiliary is small,  they hold up their end at the hospital gift  show and at the thrift shop.   ~,  The installation of the 1975 officers was  performed by Mrs. Gladys Booth, a past  president.  Other officers for the coming year are  Margaret Barton vice, president, Margaret  Gill treasurer (botth for a second term),  Edith Ross treasurer and Wilma Sim  publicity.  D. Redshaw was the winner of the draw  for-the petit point stool, donated by Ken  .Barton.  A* luncheon and exchange of Christmas  gifts Mowed.  sighs the  police, look, for to recognize,  drinking drivers:        ' , -  ��� driving at excessive speeds  7   ���driving at inconsistent speeds ���slow,  , then fast, then slow* again.    .   a  ��� taking too long or swerving too much  when overtaking or passing another vehicle  ��� unable to stay within his own lane ���  drifting over centre line or onto another lane  ��� unusual swerving and driving on the  wrong side of the road, especially on curves  ��� passing   another   vehicle "with   insufficient clearance ,' <  ��� lane hopping with excessive speeds  ���aiming vehicle ��� firm grasp on wheel,  eyes   fixed   straight   ahead,   completely  oblivious to horn blowing or other traffic  ��� driving at.exceptionally slow speeds,  1 following the centre line or curb as a guide  ��� driving on unpaved shoulder  ��� stopping" with uneven motions or applying the brakes at the last moment'  ��� driving in low gear for no apparent  reason  ��� driving at night without lights  ��� failing to start after traffic light turns  green. ^  J( Drinking^and driving greatly increases  your chanc%j>f an accident and a possible  loss of licence, the,!MVB stresses.  "It is just plain asking for trouble. The  best advice if Never Drink and Drive. Let  someone else drive home or call a. cab.  "Remember, pedestrians celebrate,  too ��� be on the lookout for them.^Put your  vehicle lights on so they can, see you and you  can see the pedestrians, particularly during  the dull, dark days at this time of year.  "Who holds the key to traffic safety? If  you give it some thought, you will realize that  it probably is the same person who is  responsible for accidents. It is only human to  want to shift the blame for an accident we  are involved in to someone else, but nearly  always we are only kidding ourselves. It does  no good to say that if conditions had been  different it would not have happened. What  counts is what we do with conditions as we  find them. We, in other words, hold,the key to  safety."

He is very proud of  me (as well he may be) but at times he is a !  bit of a fuss-budget. He is forever dusting me  off and wiping any, stains off my paint, and it [  tickles something awful when he checks my.;  automatic transmission fluid.  Al is more than just a driver, he has a real  desire to help his fellow man. He realizes how  the two of us have been needed here. We are-  going to the very best we"can, but please bear  with us'...

Halfmoon Bay Happenings  It proved to be 'third time lucky' for the  caterers of the Welcome Beach Community  Association Christmas Dinner on December  14.  After two annual dinners plagued with  problems concerned with frozen water  systems and power outages, this year's  celebration ran smoothly and without any  unforeseen problems. And an excellent  dinner it was too, served to seventy members  and their guests, all in a merry mood.'  There were twinkling Christmas lights  inside and outside the hall, loaned and installed by Bill Fraser, and the tables were  decorated with lighted candles and holly  decorations arranged by Mrs. Thea Leuchte.'  When president Alex Ellis had welcomed  members and guests, everybody set their  attention to a turkey dinner with all the  trimmings. As the dinner progressed, toasts  were made to the Pioneers, to the ladies and  to the gentlemen.  Bill Fraser proposed a toast to Alex Ellis  who was serving his third term as president.

Since  arriving here he has prevailed oyer a great  deal of misfortune and is doing very well,  thank you. ' <  He is understandably jroud of achieving ,  the lofty status of Master Chef Fellow  Associate and was happy to show me his,  credentials. It is said there are only a few in  Canada. -   -\  I spent'some hours with-Gabriel in his  home on Highway 101 just a short,distance  north of Madeira Park. It is a warm friendly  place and as we sat talking with his children  and pets close by, he took me back over the  years to the start of the events which led to  the present.  ; Hungary in 1956 was not a very healthy  place to be and although Gabriel talks  disparagingly of it, he still carries a bullet in  bis right leg as a reminder of the ill fated  uprising of that time.'  Early in 1957 the ship 'Arosa Star' docked  in a Canadian port. Among the many  refugees aboard were the Banyay family.  Gabriel ��� his mother and stepfather.  /' .They settled in Saskatchewan and a  period of adjustment began. Aside from his  mother tongue Gabriel understands a little  German, French and Italian. Taking English  lessons at night school and supported by  working by day as a farnf hand he eventually  achieved proficiency at the language.  Having had cooking experience in his native  land he then obtained a. position with Aero  Caterers at Saskatoon Airport. A few months  later he,was transferred to that company's  Edmonton operation and finally spent a year  in Toronto with them.  His next move was to a chef's -position  with Sports Services, one of the largest food  concession businesses in the country, and  worked his way up to the position of  Executive Chef.  He spent three and one half years with  this dompany. When he acquired Canadian  citizenship he opened a small restaurant in  Toronto. Later he returned to Saskatoon and  opened a European style restaurant. In 1969  he decided to try his luck in the United States  and moved to Reno, Nevada. One year there  was enough for him so he returned to Canada  and settled in the. Vancouver area and  "WAS itiiS the first iocai Christmas  card sent from the Sechelt area? The  card, dated between 1907 and 1919, is in  the possession of local historian Helen  Dawe. Church in the card photograph is  ine original cnurcn diuii in iyw, tsareiy  discernable at the end of the wharf is the '-  shape, of the steamer Comox I which  was taken out of service in 1919.  , '    ���Timesphoto  BY HELEN DAWE  Mrs. Dolly Jonas has long treasured an  ancient local Christmas card. "The Season's  Greetings from Sechelt, B.C." is imprinted  on its cover in black letters with red initial  characters. Mounted inside is an early  photograph of the Trail Bay shoreline, dating  from somewhere between the years 1907 to  1919. The exterior illustrations consist of  three tiny evergreen trees in pots and three  bells chiming.  During the late 1930's Dolly lived in Selma  Park with her parents, Thomas and Annie  Cannon. By 1940 she had opened a shop which  bore a large sign reading 'Selma Park  Hairdressing & Barbcrlng, Dolly Cannon,  licenced operator'.  Although Mrs. Jonas 1$ not certain of the  source of the Christmas card, she believes it  was given to her by a retired bachelor named  Freddie Frewln who Jived just below the old  Selma Park store during the 1930's and  1940's.  In 1974 Dolly donated the Card to Mrs.  Betty Ingram, who came to live in Sechelt in  1926 with her parents,' Bill and Jessie  Youngson. Betty has now sent the card back  from Vancouver to Sechelt, whero it is hoped  Uiat future generations of local historians  Will preserve the old momento with tho care  lt warrants.  Tlio earliest possible dato for tho  photograph of the Socholt waterfront can be  established by tho presence of Our Lady of  Lourdes Church, erected by tho Indian  people ln 1000-1907. The latest dato can be  determined by tho fact that vessel lying  olpngskle tho Sechelt wharf is tho S.S. Comox  , I, which was in the service of the Union  Steamship Co. from 1091 to 1919,  Tho largo building near tho approach to  tlio wharf scorns to pQ tho Sechelt Hotol.  , Becauso tho structure Is largely obscured by  trees I cannot ascertain "whether it Is the first  hotel, destroyed by fire in 1914, or the second  one which burned on Sunday, July 26, 1936  (not in 1935).  Beach House, a private home later converted into the Jfirst ..Sechelt Inn, is easily  - identifiable on the left. It existed from 1906 to  1964. Another notable landmark is the  bandstand in front of the church.  If any reader can use these clues to  provide further information about the card,  will he or she be kind enough to let the editor  know. Were the greetings perhaps offered for  sale in the old Sechelt store operated hy Bert  Whittaker until 1925?  . A fine new building for interpretive  displays and films has been built by Creston  Valley Wildlife Centre on the west side of the'  Management Area. Displays will be  prepared this winter and self-guiding trails  laid out nearby,  During the festive season, when most  people's thoughts turn to turkey and tinsel, it  might be appropriate to reflect, for a  moment, on the following poem, "donated"  to CARE's Food Crusade by Hulda Weber. It  is entitled "Such a Small Bundle".  "There is this little child..'.  From what ris it hiding?  It cannot outrun its hunger  On feet  Fragile as the drought-  dried stem of grain.  "Boney skull,  Big-blown belly...  Eating on itself...  Little one,     ',  Famine dines well.  "When I close "  My eyes,  You are such a small bundle  In a brown cloth.,.

With everything lost  and having few assets plus a family to'  support he looked for help and found it in the  person of Ernest (Ernie) Widman, local  businessman. Knowing Gabriel had little  money,and no immediate prospects he  showed faith" and trust, not to mention  humanity, by allowing the family to move'  into a house he owned and giving them time  to get  on  their feet  before  expecting  payments.  Sitting in this same house, Gabriel said he '  and his' family would never have made it  without the help and understanding of the  Widmans.  Working hard to reorganize his life he  picked up any kind of work he could including  butchering, and with the help of his wife  Irene and the children opened^ a small tent  covered snack bar on the burned out site of  his ill fated restaurant. 1974 saw the start of  Tammy's Pacific Foods Limited at Earls  Cove and the business is doing well-enough  that the Banyays can afford to smile at past  misfortunes.  Discussing the future Gabriel is - enthusiastic about the cooking classes he will  conduct in the Pender_HarhourJSecondary  School starting next January. The evening  classes are for 'Mrs. Housewife', and will be  called 'How To Beat the Budget.' He will also  hold an industrial course for waiter and  waitress training/ He said his principal aim  is to impart knowledge so people will eat  properly and retain vigorous good health and  added Master Chefs are pledged to ppss on  their experience know how to anyone' who  desires it.    \  He is no stranger to; teaching, having  conducted cooking classes in Vancouver and  Saskatoon. > ~     ,  He has photographs of his prize whining  dishes and they certainly looked like works of  art. ~ '  Gabriel was asked why all the great chefs  of the world are men. He smiled as he said  his opinion was women ��� because of natural  ability opportunity and perhaps necessity ���  would probably make better chefs except for  one thing. They look upon cooking as a chore,  where men see it as a challenge/ -���"  Master Chef Banyay will be authoring a  series of columns on the culinary arts for The  Times.  fftocyel�� this R3��wopaporl  '      we wish you and1 your family all  the blessings of the season..'.. love, hope, peace, joy, good will  and good cheer I We take this opportunity to  thank our many good friends^  from the management and staff of  SECHELT and MADEIRA PARK  y^DA 'J-\  ' ' *:S**-_?'**,,Vw,<  f-.

For many subjects the  schools provide a good frame for learning.  Other subjects might as well be taught in  your own living room or simply on location  where people who want to leanrtogetherlive.
