'Earls Cove, Egmont  Whether we look on the end of 1976 with reluctance or relief, we have to  admit it was quite a year for the Sunshine Coast. It was said that we took some  giant strides, whetherthat was forward or backward depends on who you talk  to. '   jT  It was a difficult, trying year for some; a light, pleasant one for others. And,  as always, one man's triumph is another's disaster.  Union  Here are the highlights (and lowlii  the Peninsula Times.  This Issue-12pages-  N  ST.

The two impaired charges  were laid itfsfttotine checks. The roadblocks did not yield one drinking and  driving charge.  "The program is having the effect we  wanted," Constable Bob Prest told the  Times, "We have had some suspensions  from the roadblocks, but no impaired  charges up to December ?" "  ; Sechelt RCMP did report a number of  minor jmotor vehicle accidents primarily  attributable to road conditions. One  vehicle received $600 damage! when it  Vandalism  reported  in villages  T'was the season to be Jolly; but some  people were upset over some unwanted  holiday activity.  Helen Johnson of Gibsons told The  Times of some of lt.  "After the Lower Gibsons merchants  went to all the trouble of putting up  Christmas trees and colored lights,  someone came along and cut the wires on  the lights, stole some of the bulbs and  broke others."  She said it was disheartening for tho  merchants to attempt to brighten up their  area and then have vandals wr<eck their  work. She added that she suspected  children had done the damage.  The lights had only been up three days  when the damage was done, she said.  The Redrooffs area also was the  recipient of vandalism damage, according  to gechelt RCMP. The damage is atlU  under Investigation.  "People don't seem to realize how  much trouble they can get Into If they are  caught," a Sechelt RCMP officer said.

After  filling and distributing 107 hampers to  underprivileged families on the Peninsula,  the donations continued to pour in. The  extra cash was used to purchase equipment for the hospital. The Elves presented  to St. Mary's a stand-up model blood  pressure cup and two adjustable stainless  steel stools.  The message on the accompanying  card said, "Derived from funds donated to  the Elves by the residents and Service  clubs on the Peninsula."  To the Sunshine School, they presented  a deluxe 16 chord consolette electric  organ. *  The accompanying card expressed  similar sentiments.  The following names omitted from the  published list, also generously donated to  the Elves Christmas Fund: Ladles  Auxiliary Royal Canadian Legion Branch  140, Sechelt; Jamleson Automative Parts  & Service, Gibsons and Swanson L & H  Ltd., Sechelt.

In most places, police reported  their holiday roadblock program to be  highly successful in that very, very  few charges were laid as a result. It  laid is an indicator of the extent of the  problem.  Drinking and driving is a problem.  The Sunshine Coast has only one main  artery and everyone uses it. It's  everyone's problem when there is  someone on that road whose vision,  reflexes and judgement are, impaired.  Despite   the    advertising,   the  seemed, in general, that people were roadblocks,, the promise of a sub-  taking a more responsible, mature stantial fine and license suspension,  attitude toward their holiday-���^we still have this problem.

We Uve in such'an efficient, antiseptic  world that its' nice to watch it trip over its  sneaker laces once in a whUe.   .  Like for example, with aU the new  postal codes and postage sorting machine  and aU that, it's nice to get a Christmas  card addressed to Box 310, LUooet, B.C.  with the proper postal code for Lilooet.  "Reassures one's faith that the system is  after aU human in origin.  WHILE escaping from the Sunshine  Coast for the hoUdays, I watched as it took  nearly an hour to unload and load one of  those spiffy new superferries at Horseshoe  Bay, epitome of efficiency.  On my way back from the Island, I  motored into the Departure Bay ferry  terminal at just after 4 p.m. and asked  when the next sailing would be. There was  a ferry in the terrninal, disgorging  vehicles. The attended jerked his head  toward it and said, "That's the 3:15. You  might get on it or you might get on the  5:30." Reinstated my faith in the 20th  Century. ���   -"iP  BY THE WAY whUe I was on Vancouver Island I dropped in to visit one  LesUe Yates, famed ih song and story.  Funny thing, Leslie, who left here to go to  Duncan, was fired more times than a  Saturday Night Special a few weeks ago,  has quit. He's departed his haUowed  Island for a position on the editorial staff  of the Prince Rupert DaUy News. Sym-'  pathy cares can be addressed to him care  of that newspaper. When I asked him if he  had any messages for the folks back home,  he said, with typical Yates economy,  "No." Then he added, 'Tm sure you'U  think of something."  Before he left for Rupert, though, he did  turn down a position as .editor with one of  the local junk mail papers which goes to  show that Duncan didn't addle his brain  completely.  THERE WAS a few interesting things  happen on the holiday, like running into Ed  Johnson, the regional board director, in  Nanaimo. like just about getting killed on  the Island Highway when some doorknob  in a black car ran a stop sign north of  Courtenay; for a minute I thought I was  back on the Sunshine Coast, different  black car, though.  MISERY was watching the Oakland  Raiders poke holes In Pittsburgh's Steel  Curtain like lt was tin foil. Really hurt to  4 watch the Steelers looking like some bush  leaguers and Lyn Swann dropping footballs  like they were hot and slippery. Actually,  deep ln my black little heart, I'm a little  pleased because I would rather see Bud  Grant's Vikings meet The Raiders than  the Steelers in the Super Bdwl. I start  watching American football about mid-  December every yenr, watch the final few  games and Uien don't watch the Super  Bowl. The league finals are usually the  best games (Dec. 2ft's second game excluded.)  If the Vikings lose this one, I'm going to  change my ancestry to something else.  I WOULD like to say W to Pat and  Terry jn Campbell River who are petrified  that my first column of the yenr will  record some of the unties that went on at  their place over Christmas.

DENNIS ROBERTSON had a temper  thfifcrum because I left him off my  Christmas list Dec. 22.1 don't see why he's  so upset, there's no way he would have got  on there in the first place.  ActuaUy I would like to||iank Dennis  for arranging the interview with Santa  Claus. (If the truth be known I asked  Santa for two things. One will be coming'  shortly and the other we'U wait on for a  while.)  I READ where in Wilhams Lake they  have a city-widl hoUday on January 2  caUed Wrestling Day, sort of a twUi.ght  zone between New Year's Eve and back to  work. Seems like a sensible idea.  On Christmas Day, I felt the need to  get out of the house for a while, so we  irfotored around downtown CampbeU  River and were surprised to find a corner  store open. We went in (as did several  other people, to balance those coming out)  and I asked one of the owners what kind of  a day he was having. "Busy," he repUed.  It seemed calm compared to the scene in  the house I had left with Christmas wrap  and presents from bowsprit to mizzenmast  But I said I wasn't going to say anything  about that.  THAT BRINGS us to New Year's  resolutions, the only thing broken more  often than politicians' promises.  To show my steel wiU, I wiU give up  eating Hershey bars with almonds. That  may take some doing. Also FU get more  exercise. We're not doing too badly. And  FU write to my father more often. So far  not bad. And and and, weU, maybe we  won't get carried away, I think those are  much more sound resolutions that, say,  making a resolution to pursue a life of  moderation, attention to detail,  thoughtfulness, inner awareness, temperance and social awareness. Don't you  think? ..j  ONE SAD note which should be mention here. Anyone who has ever speht more  than half an hour or 40 cents in the Lund  Breakwater Inn knows BiU Skibinski, the  screwball waiter there. WeU, BiU shuffled  off the mortal coil recently; but he leaves  with a lot of warm memories for me.  I first met him when Frank O'Brien and  I were Green as caterpillar guts in this  business and skipped out one hot Thursday  afternoon to talk about things at the Lund  pub. It was about 1 p.m. and we wandered  into an empty pub. After sitting down and  waiting for a little service, we soon  realized that wc were quite alone in the  place. A cry of, "Anybody home?"  brought the rcplv, "I'm having my lunch,  get your own," from the adjoining dining  area. Such was Bill Skibinski.,  Not too long after, some half-djhink was  getting rowdy at a table with some of his  drinking buddies. Bill finally got annoyed  und said to the man, who was nbout 35,  "Okay, let's seq your ID." The guy was  horrified and fumbled out his wallet and  gave him his driver's license. "Not good  enough," Bill said. "What else you got?"  Of course no matter what they guy pulled  out, lt wasn't good enough and Bill threw  him out.  I remember taking freshly caught ling  cod ln there on a Saturday afternoon and  having BiU deep fry it in the cooker and  serve it to all present. Those, alas, were  the days. The world's a little worse off  since Bill left.        -*��  Thank you  F.dltor, The Times;  Sir: TWs letter lt to thank you for the  kind and courteous co-operation that you  have given to the SuiUiliKr Coast Group of  Chiistlnn Scientists over recent years.

Children Be Learning; Goals of the  Core Curriculum' it is designed for study  and discussion by student^, their parents,  educators and7 the general community;  throughout the province.  The pamphlet explains in detaU what  each child should be taught during their  primary, intermediate' and secondary  schooling.  The  superintendent  of the  Sechelt  school district, John Denley, says the  ideas put forware' v the government wiU  be the subject oi uuch debate in the  foUowing months. AU local schools have  been asked to set up at least one meeting  at which residents can present their own  views on education.  Copies of the core curriculum are now  available at the school board office, in  Gibsons.

Grade Four students.  A panel set up by the school board met for  two days in November to consider local  results in relation to the provincial  average.  The panel found "the vaudtty of the test  should be seriously considered as...it was  culturaUy biased, some vocabulary was  beyond the Grade Four level and some test  questions did not test stated objectives."'  The panel felt the statistics should "be  used as an indicator but with great  caution" and that local chUdren displayed  "reasonable" skills at aU levels.  Denley told The Times the school  district should aim at the expectation rate  as defined by the panel rather than at the  provincial average.

Editor, The Times;     '���,.'  Sir: Why are the workers in the forest  industry laid off? They didn't strike,  though I keep reading that- unions are  ruining the country.  They aren't on a 'slow down'. Many  have been "high balling" along���'- and  working as many hours as they could.  There wasn't a fire season. They  weren't snowed out  They produced, and this is the reward  they get under capitalism.  Your house payments, car payments  and other expenses don't stop when your  pay cheqpe stops.  We could put an end to the booms and  busts if the workers ran industry. We could  have year round employment and shorter  work wefeks.and lower prices.  But this year, the shareholders are  drowning out the gentleman with the white  beard when they aU go "Ho, Ho, Ho,".

The annual  average is 1,358.4 (15 year average) and  this year was much drier than 1975 with its  1,435.9.  The peculiarities came when one  looked at the year's high and low temperatures. The lowest 1$mperature of the  year, one would expect in January or  February, but was on March ,.i at -6  degress Centigrade. The hottest day  wasn't in July or August but in September  at a balmy 24 degrees on September 20.  December's 135.1 mm of precipitation  didn't quite make it into the record book.  1963 was drier at 72.1 mm. The December  average, by the way, is 220.0 and last year  hit it on the nose ��� 220.0.  The daytime high recorded at the  Gower Point weather station was 13 on  December 16 and the overnight low was  December 31 at 1-.

Later at the PNE, the club brought  home three ribbons, all in the open classes.  4H ��� Health, Heart, Head and Hand,  all pledged by those who join to what adds  up to voluntary preparation for the best  kind of citizenship. Without doubt it is one  of the most valuable agencies in existence,  offering training of young people in those  much neglected values of responsibility,  duty and self discipline. It was designed  for and can only operate successfully  under the active leadership of volunteer'  adults, getting only the minimum help  from public funds and then in response to  achievement.  Tha Gibsons club is pretty well  representative of all the rural clubs being  a small organization of half a dozen or so  members with a couple of adults, themselves interested in the occupation their  boys and girls want to learn.  It has been in existence probably since  about 1910 when a beef club was started  under the sponsorship of the Howe Sound  Farmers' Institute. Government  regulations requiring inspection !$-,���>  government officials made it impossible  for the club to carry on since there were  neither inspectors on the peninsula in  those days nor money for transportation of  animals to the mainland. In fact any  transportation was a problem. The In-^  stitute still backs the new club-now in Its',,  second year to the extent that it has just  recently given it a cheque for $1,500 to buy  a trailer for that same transportation that  was an unsolvable problem in the early  days.  Now the leadership. Cecil Chamberlin  and his wife Bernice were born and have  lived all their lives, now around the half  century mark, in the Gibsons area.  Besides their own family they have  adopted a boy Frank now about 12 years  old. Their farming interest is represented  by nine Black Angus, a couple, pf Jersey  cows and two Arabian horses, all ofcourse  of purebred registered stock. Bernice ia  also a most successful dahlia grower, but  more of that later because she and her  hobby play a a large part in the fortunes of  - the Club.  Working with them as assistant leader.  W�� Sheila Kitson. They make up the 'brass';  looking after eight calf club members.  There Is a good possibility that It may be  Increased by the addition of a leader for a  home economics group.  The other very interested and active  supporter of this little organisation Is the  well know Bella Vista Jersey Farm at  Langley, formerly owned by the Relfel  family. The Chamberllns cannot speak  highly1 enough of the present operators of  the Bella Vista. In fact they say that but  for the active help of Bob and LU Wilson  the little Gibsons club could not have got  off Uie ground. They have provided the  calves and the advice on raising and then  take them back into the herd after the  young people have completed their;  assignments. No money or other consideration of course and the club members  have their choice of calves for the next  three years operation.  Several other 4H clubs have started up  in the Gibsons area including one for  rabbit raisers and one-for poultry. Efforts  to start a beef club however have nrit met  with response. The other clubs are not so  fortunate as the Jersey Club because, for  one reason and another, leaders are not  available.  Bernice Chamberlin deserves a special  place in this narrative. She is undoubtedly  a fahta^ic dahlia grower." I love them"  she says "and they love me.'*��� Every  weekend-you will see her at the local  shopping centre where the shoppers buy in  surprising quantities. "I never cease to be  amazed" she says "This year we have sold  almost $400 worth. We are trying to make  enough to get blankets for the calves going  into the show ring". Then as always there  wUl be another project in need of financing.  Outside competitions are invaluable  says Cecil Chamberlin, but it means a lot  of money for a small club. The trip to  Chilliwack for instance, cost upwards of  $125 in cash. But nobody asks for a handout  ��� always precept to the young is backed  up by the example of the adult. If you want  something, you earn it.  The CJlbsons club is the essence of 4H, a  microcosm of the Canadian scene that few  see. It's the highest form of citizenship-  building for the future and it goes right  backJg the Chamberlins of the country,  unnoticed and, largely by most of  unappreciated.  LOCAL VANDALISM  Francis Peninsula residents Mr. and  Mrs. Bob Hubbard who live on Warnock"  Road lost some of their Christmas time  feeling when they came home from a trip  tp Langley and viewed the damage to their  Home.  <  , Mrs. Hubbard said they were notified of  the damage by a neighbour on Sunday,.

Chairman of the committee >is Dr.  James Tyhurst who is also chairman of the  party's standing committee oh transportation policy). Members of the committee include Mackenzie MLA  Lockstead, transportation critic in the  NDP caucus, and Graham R. Lea, MLA  for Prince Rupert and former minister of  highways.     -   ������~������7������������  Two other persons who are politically  independent and have knowledge and  experience in transportation matters are  yet to be appointed.  "The, committee has been- formed  because it is clear that there is a complete  absence of policy on the part of the present  federal and provincial governments," Lea  said. "The crises in transportation which  has been highlighted by the cancellation of  Northland Navigation service and by the  shoddy replacement-ofsthat service is a  clear indication of that awence of policy."  "The committee is not going to  determine what the problems are in the  members opinion. The people of the Coast  know what the problems, are and they  know what the solutions are. We are going  to gather that information and put it into  policy," he added.  Lockstead said the committee will hold  public hearings in many coastal communities starting in February and its  report will be "discussed at the NDP  provincial convention in May and  hopefully passed into party policy.  it * * ��� ��� ��� .,* * * ��� * ��� * * ��� .������������ *  THE HAPPIHHOPPERS  Janitorial Services  *  *  *  *  *  i+t          \���-r.   v**s<^:?^' *������  *'. available for      V      ���-.  *    Business ��� Home ��� Garages    *  * 886-7100 -*  ��  bonded Pat Holland *  ���***���**���* ��� ��� ��� *���*.��� *-'*  CHIEF SIMON BAKER, spokesman  for the Northwest Indian Cultural  iSociety, right, was one of two social  guests at a reception held during the  holidays at the Sechelt Indian Band  Office, Senator Guy Williams, second  right, was the other.

In his annual report, Dr. Laing lists  seven causes of death which he describes  as "unacceptable". They are tobacco  mokingv acute coronary-tnsuffrcfencyin  teople under the age of 64, motor vehicle  accidents,^ alcohol abuse, other accidents,  suicide and drugs.  There were 16 deaths due to cancer of  the lung related to smoking. Five victims  were women, but the .total rises to 20 if  deaths from bronchitis and emphysema  are included.  Only one case of lung cancer unrelated  to smoking was reported during the year.  Deaths frpm lung cancer increased by six  i|M��fftfrarispn with 1974. ,  "There is strong evidence that  cigarette smoking is related to coronary  artery disease, but the relationship is not  so direct as the relationship between  cigarette smoking and chronic bronchitis  and emphysema," says Dr. Laing.  Of deaths due to acute coronary insufficiency, Dr. Laing says it is considered  that a person who is born healthy and free  from harmful hereditary influences should  be able to reach the age of 65 before a life-  threatening degree of degenerative  disease afflicts the arteries supplying the  heart muscle.  He says a person should be able to  reach 65 with such a disease, by taking  advice from doctors and health agencies  regarding smoking, diet and physical  exercise. Therefore 16 deaths frqm acute  insufficiency of the heart nre in people  under 65 are listed as "unacceptable".  Deaths duelfy motor vehicle accidents,  Including the deaths of pedestrians and  cyclists, went up by one to 15, in comparison with 1974.  "Wc huvc no legislation ugainst ex-  of motor  cessive consumption of alcol  smoking or sloth, but  legislation to control the  vehicles," said Dr. Laing.  rr "This being so, it is disappointing to get  the impression that the main effort being  mac|e to reduce motor-vehicle-accident-  deaths is being directed to enforcing th6  use of seat belts.  "Much healtBer and more hopeful than  the passive seat belt philosophy would be a  public demand for the effective use of the  present legislation or the enactment of  tougher measures."  There were 13 deaths due to alcohol ���  either directly from acute intoxication,  from accidents related to intoxication, or  the harmful effects of excessive intake, for  example cirrhosis of the liver.  Accidents other than those involving  motor vehicles claimed 12 victims during  1975. Six people committed suicide and  three died from the use of drugs in circumstances Dr. Laing cites as "unacceptable".  Focus on Fitness  By SUSAN MILBURN  fitness (fitness of the heart, lungs and  blood vessels) are New -Aerobics and  Aerobics for Women by Dr. Cooper and  wife. Aerobics refers to a variety of  exercices that stimulate heart and lung  activity for a time period sufficiently long  enough to produce beneficial changes in  the body. High levels of oxygen transport  are the basis for endurance activities.  These books will be in the Sechelt book  store in the middle of January, but can  also be acquired in Vancouver.  On January 14 at Elphinstone Secondary Caferteria there will be an Action  B.C. workshop. Emphasis will be put on  the need for cardio vascular fitness, by the  two representatives f'roinT&tioh B.C. Also  a demonstration and instruction on  Aerobic Dance will be given. An enjoyable  way to get your 15 minutes of vigorous 0  exercise,  Phone the fitness service for more  details, 885-3611.  Coronary heart disease is one of  the leading causes of death in North  America. Heart attack and other vessel  disorders kill 800,000 each year. Each day  1,400 people die due to heart disease..  The beginning of heart disease is -  largely attributable to obesity, inactivity  and cigarette smoking, later to be complicated by high blood pressure, diabetes,  high intake of animal fat and family  history.  It is generally considered to be found in  aging people (although it is not uncommon  to hear of heart attache striking persons ih  their thirties and forties). However,  evidence found in Korean and Vitenamese  war dead indicated that the beginnings of  coronary artery disease were present in  males averaging 22 years of age. One  percent of people -under 30 have some kind  of heart disease they are unaware of.  Thousands and thousands of people are  dying each year and in most cases it could  have been prevented. With the statistics so  high it is getting increasingly harder to  ''-���&&, "Oh it won't happen to me". Why wait-  to find out? Startthinking of yourself .All it  takes is half an hour three times a week.  Included in that time is 15 minutes of  sustained vigorous activity. For example  running on the spot, jogging, walking,  cycling, hiking, swimming or skipping.  Your daily cycle or jog will become a time  of your own where for half an hour you  know you are doing your body a lot of good.  Along with a stronger more efficient heart,  your muscles will tone up and become  firmer. The result being a more alive,  energetic you. It only makes sense that if  the heart, your most vital organ, is strong  and healthy the effects will spread  throughout your body.

Va.��� 4i  <  The Peninsula Times  PageB-5  Wednesday, January 5,1977  Many scientific worlds  unfold for the curious  ^  By MARYANNE WEST  Someone, (was it George Bernard  Shaw?) observed that education is wasted  on the young. Be that as it may, the older  one becomes the more you appreciate the  need to keep, the old grey matter ex-  cersized and functioning. Which may well  be the reason I especially enjoy television  shows which challenge the mind .and  imagination and look forward every year  to the return "of 'The Nature of Things' on  CBC-TV."  I suppose it's classified as educational,  that much maligned word, but I'm not sure  we should even try to classify such things.  Inevitably, with the way most of us were  brought up, sooner or later those labelled  pigeon hoies acquire values as well ���  comedy is entertaining, anything  educational is boring. It may very well be  just the other way around.  That there is a large potential audience  for television programs which stimulate  thought and ideas is given credence by the  large number of Canadians who contribute  financial support to Channel 9, the  American Public Broadcasting station.  Our Canadian Public Broadcasting system  being a typical compromise solution,  allowing advertising revenues to supplement grants from Parliament would  appear not to be providing for the needs of  a lot of people. It looks as though that  scheme which would have buttered our  bread on both sides, giving us the best of  two worlds isn't working out very  satisfactorily. One of the prices we have to  pay is that programs which do not carry  advertising are relegated to late evening  viewing, prime time of course being the  pre-requisite of the advertiser. However  this year the Nature of Things has a break  and can be seen on Wednesdays at 8 on  Channels 2 .and 6. This should make it  available to a larger audience including  children. ���"''..  As the name implies the Nature of  Things is a program^ef -explop^i-on, --.  concerned with the way thiuigs worif; atthe! *  natural level of ecosystems, the  sociological level of how people interact j  the physical level of why elements act the  way they do and the level of human  physiology,. how our minds and bodies  function, and how our knowledge of these  many things is expanded, little bit by. little  bit.  This week the Nature of Things  presents the first of this year's medical  research programs especially for the  parents of all New Year babies, a study of  the newborn human. Not so very long ago  newborn babies were thou.ght to be  relatively uninteresting, more or *less  semi-dormant beings, any indications that  there waa more going on in a baby's mind  than met the eye was put down to parental  pride, the quite natural, but unscientific  belief of all new parents that their child is  quite the most wonderful ever born.  Remember being told, "that smile isn't  recognition, your baby is too young to  understand his environment, it's just a  reaction to gas in his stomach!"  ��� All that is changing and while research  of the newborn is still a limited field many  surprising discoveries have been made  and babies are now known to be born with  a number of amazing reflexes and  abilities. The film captures the beauty and  wonder of the newborn.  Another program to dispel some well-  worn myths will bring viewers up to date  on research into the process of aging. The  I jist of Life looks at its inherent problems  but there are also rewards, less often  discussed. The third medical research  study looks at the Mind's Eye, the ways in  which the mind deals with the visual  Images and stimuli it receives, how they  arc automatically organized so that what  you see makes sense.  As in other years there are two  programs about little known societies  which have survived relutlvely untouched  by the tentacles of Industrial civilization.  'The Children of the Buffalo' documents  the TodiiH tribe of India and on January  24 an hour's special.study of the Gabra, a  ���*  tribe of some 24,000 people living in the  harsh terrain on both sides of ihe Kenya-  Ethiopia border. Nancy Archibald, the  executive producer of the series, is a  charming and courageous lady who goes  off apparently unconcerned for personal  safety and creates the necessary trust and  understanding which makes it possible to  bring in a camera crew to film the daily  lives and sacred rituals of such remote,  tribes, to whom North Americans must  look .alien and peculiar people.  We have seen two of this season's environmental programs during the  Christmas season, nicely contrasted,  reports of an experiment in Israd's Negev  desert near the Jordanian border to  restock Noah's Park with the species  which formally inhabited the land, and  which have disappeared as a result of  overgrazing by domestic flocks of goats  which created the present desert conditions and a beautiful study of a tropical  coral reef. The use of microphotograpny  introduced us to the protozoa and bacteria  upon which the whole system depends but  which are too small to be seen with the  naked eye. If there were more programs  as beautiful as this one, I'd seriously  consider investing in a colour television!  There is another biology program, this  one for bird lovers, a success story of the  work being done to restore ganriet  populations on Bonaventure Island almost  wiped out by DDT. The restrictions on use  and dumping of pesticides has enabled  them to make a come-back.  As we begin to seriously consider  alternate sources of energy the program  'When the Wind Blows' should be of. more  than passing interest, as it will explore not  only weather and the world-wide  movement of air around the planet, but the  effects of wind on man made structures,  the ways man has already harnessed the  power of the wind and the possibilities for  the future. /  ^^$heNatiire.e�� Tbingp. wffltw?t��fi.gure?in  ; tMtol^n tfftte rating^ .fclM; #t to me  that is -not a criterion of worth or  credibility. Programs Such as these,  presented with the loving care and attention to detail which is the hallmark of  professional excellence justify the CBC's  continued existence. They just are not  available to us from any other source.  A sdhr^^e of tiines and dates for this  series fe available |rpm this newspaper on  request.  Ultra-suspense at Twilight  EVERYONE AGREES that when a  baby reaches this age,, every minute  of its waking life is filled with learning, exploring, thinking, experiencing. But when do those first  thoughts, those first experiences  come. There are those, who say they  come'much sootier than generally  believed. On The Nature of Things on  January 5, 8 p.m. Channels 2 and 6,  . newborn babies are looked at in terms  of being more than semi-dormant,  "too young" to know what's going on  around them. ���Timesphoto  -' "The Omen" starring Gregory Peck  and Lee Remick opens Jan. 9���at the  Twilight Theatre.  The story of "The Omen", relates to a  prophecy in the Bible,. the Book of  Revelations, which foretells the coming of  Armage&lon, the final confrontation  betweenuie forces of good and evil, that  wilLbe set off by the birth of the Antichrist ���the son to Satan ��� in the form of  a human who. will at the outset be  mistakenly greeted by mankind as a  savior..  The words <of the prophecy are:  When the Jews return to Zion  and a comet rips the sky  And the Holy Roman Empire rises  Then you and I must die.  From the eternal sea he rises  Creating armies on either shore  '   Turning man against his brojther  'Til man exists no more.  What if these signs did indeed signal the  coming of the Anti-Chrisrtin^ugh whom  "Satan would wage his last and formidable offense?" How would the fact of  his being the son of Satan be concealed  until the rightmbmerit? To whom would he  be born ��� or placed with ��� until he  reached manhood? What would the consequences be to the people who raised him  thinking he was an ordina.ryrachild? And  how would his being in apposition of  ultimate worldly power be assured?,  Gregory Peck who in recent years has  turned hteenergies to film production with  'The Trial of CatonsviUe Nine' and 'The;  Dove' returns to acting in the role of the  Ambassador to the Court of St. James.

I'm here to protect thee." Patrick  Troughton is the priest who tries in vain to  warn the ambassador. And Holly Palance,  makes her motion picture debut as a  young nursemaid.

Mrs. Jean Petit was in charge of tickets  and other members assisted ih setting up  tables etc. but with an outside caterer  everyone could relax and enjoy the  evening. Mrs. Joan Mackereth did a  superlative job of decorating tables and  walls.  Entertainment was produced by the  Redrooffers a group of lively singers.  _���' Leader Ruth Forrester accompanied  by her guitar, is backed up by Thea,  Leutche, guitarist, and Paul Hansen on the  mighty accordian. Other singers were Kay  Dombroskl, Gerry Smith, Roy Hill, Greg  Hill and Bob Forrester.  Roy Hill soloed with a version of White  Christmas  that  compared  with  Bing  Crosby .and joined with Gerry Smith for a '  duet of a calypso number that was a great  hit.'. -  Kay Dombroski and Greg. Hill  vocalized 'Amen' for a delightful duet.  The feeling of fun and relaxation  emitting from the Redrooffers plus their  professional manner and delightful  singing voices made pure pleasurable  listening. The group sang a goodly number'  of tunes as well as having the audience join  in for some community singing.

Welcome Beach  Community Hall.  ���Starting at 6:30 with films chosen by  Maureen Renouf and tan off by projectionist Ralph North, kids and parents  enjoyed 'The Owl that Married a Goose.'  'One Little Indian' and 'The Bear and the  Mouse.'  The enlargement of this hall came none  too soon as 60 of the seventy children from  Bayview to Secret Cove, twelve and  under, were present. Soon after Uie films  the sound the children were waiting for  was heard-, the bells qn Santa's sleigh.  Then Santa himself appeared attired,  inside and out, by Morgan Thompson.  ^Santa Claus and his helper".Maty  Connor were set to give out tfie presents  when up rushed a small girl, Nicole  Parendon and.'she sat on his knee until her  name was qalled quite unconcerned.  There were a lot of happy faces with the  ripping of off the fancy wrappings.  Head of the Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Commission Mrs. Peggy North and her  committee did a splendid job. Linda  Paulhus and Sue Beaven put the orders for  gifts in to the jolly fellow. Bonnie Semotiuk  and Peggy North planned the refreshment  as well as serving them aided by Barbara  Laakso and Jerry-Lou Wickwire.  The many newcomers to the area were  introduced to other families as the school  age chUdren mixed.  Peggy North' is enjoying a visit from  her Aunt Clarissa Thomas out for a week  from Winnipeg. !  Mary Szentesi of Eureka reported on  Dec. 17 that there was a ripe raspberry on  one of the canes in her garden. Checking  with Janet Allen, Redrooffs garden expert,  this is not unusual especially with the  weather experienced in 1976. Plants do not  foretell what is to. come, they only react to  what has gone by. Hollyhocks in bloom in  my garden are a good example, the  flowers that are blooming now would  never have seen the light of day if the  weather was not suitable for their growth.  ,. the Halfmoon Bay Volunteer Fire  ��� Department are looking for volunteer  carpenters, builders and workers to give a  few hours of their time in the building of  the fire hall.

Premier wants  Ottawa to split  ferry costs  Premier Bill; Bennett has called on the  federal government to share the cost of  coastal ferries operatiohs on a 50-50 basis  with the provincial government.  He made the request in a strongly-  worded telegram to Prime Minister Pierre  Trudeau, in which he said the provincial  government "must insist on an equitable  sharing of ferry costs in British Columbia." *  The premier also announced that he is  inviting the four federal cabinet ministers  from B.C. ��� ten Marchand, Iona Campagnolo, Ron Basford and Senator Ray  Perrault"��� to meet with him in Victoria  January 10 to discuss the whole question of  federal subsidies to ferries in this  province.  Premier Bennett's telegram to  Trudeau said federal operating costs to  ferries on the East coast total $108 million  compared with $4 million in B.C. ��� with  the B.C. subsidy being further reduced  when the federal subsidy of $3.7 million to  Northland Navigation is terminated.  The telegram listed federal subsidies to  East coast provinces as follows:  Newfoundland, $24 million; Newfoundland-Nova Scotia, $64 million; Prince  Edward Island to Mainland Canada, $15  million; Nova Scotia to Maine, $2 million  and Quebec communities, $3 million.  Bennett said the B.C. government  presently subsidizes ferries in B.C. to a  total amount of $31 million. He said the  government proposes that this subsidy  should be split 50-50 with the federal  government  The telegram added, "We urge your  government to meet us halfway in  defraying these highway equivalent costs.  In doing so you will not only be serving the  best interests of our taxpayers but you will  also be agreeing to a financial formula  which will stand up for years to come.  "Rationalizing the ferry system along  these lines would bring us closer to equity  for West coast Canadians," it said.  Fitness is something you can jump  up and down about  V,  panmipacnan.

Here  Santa   hands   a  present to a young miss. There Were  presents for all at the party.   . J  ���Timesphoto  * BY GUY SYMONDS  The African Violet is one of the most  popular of house plants, not only at the  Christmas season but all through ttie year.  One reason for this is that provided a few  basic factors are strictly considered, it is  one of the easiest to grow and to  propogate. Moreover it shows its gratitude  for a kind home and understanding  treatment by flowering profusely and  continuously for a year or more at a time  practically right from babyhoo^  The first and foremost vital factor is  light. Often the complaint is heard from a  disappointed owner that the cherished  African Violet is strong and health but  refuses to blpoin. generally the reason is  that the plant is not getting enough light.  This does not even have to be daylight for  it can, and very often is,' grown in a ���  basement under nothing but artificial light  (and very successfully too.) If anyone is  thinking of doing this, the word is that good  results can be obtained by the use of a  fluorescent daylight-type tube about 12 to  15 inches above the plant and kept burning  for 14 hours a day.  Then there is temperature. The African  Violet is a native of Africa and likes a  climate where the temperature does not  drop much below 65P degrees or goes  much over 72F. Outside this range the  plant will not thrive as it should.  The third factor, of equal importance  as the others, is humidity. If this is a  problem due to the general environment,  then stand the plants in a saucer of water  with pebbles in it so that pot does not  actually stand on or touch the water. This  method also helps to ward of the attentions  of the red spidermite ��� the curse of house  plants.  Watering is best done from the bottom,  that is by standing the pot in water  periodically so the capillary action draws  it up to the roots. Top" watering is quite  permissible provided that the leaves are  not wetted. The leaf washing recommended for many house plants is not  appreciated one bit by the African Violet.  Soil has not been mentioned and this, of  course, is the main source for getting food  to the plant.' In the first instance when  planting out the soil should be .sterilized by  pouring boiling water through lt. Do this  out of doors. A mixture of gardih, .soil, peat  moss and sand in equal parts is recommended with the addition of a little  boncmcal to supply long term nutrition.  Generally lime wllfnot be necessary as the  Violet like a soil thnt Is slightly on the acid  sldo.  Propagation can be accomplished by  taking leaf cuttings or by dividing the  plant in the spring time. Pull the root  system apart carefully, each piece of  course having its own root supply and pot  indivlduully in small pots.  The leaf cutting Is more interesting to  some people, leaves arc cut from a good  healthy plant and several of them are  stuck Into a pot of peatmoss and sand.  Kept in a humid atmosphere they will  quickly develop roota of Uicir own at which  point Uiey can be transferred to individual  pots with normal soil mixture and tended  In the usual wny until they flower. This  could be ln a matter of three or four  months an they rnature fast.  The appearance of the African Violet  plant will let you know If it Is happy or not.  laot* of leaves and no blooms generally  men as not enough light but lt could lx��.  getting a food that It too heavy In  nitrogen. On the other hand lf the ptent is  compact but >ale and listless then tt is  getting too much direct sunlight or not  enough nitrogen. Tf the edges and tips turn  yellow and brown the answer lies In Increasing the potash supply ln the food.  ACTIVITY AIDE Jan Partington just before Christmas.

'  Volunteer Director, Muriel Eggins,  with help and approval of the hospital  personnel, had everything arranged like a  big house party, even to a specialty bar  with several different eggnogs, some more  spirited than others, served by Harry  Jenkins.  Dr. Dennis Rogers spoke, on behalf of.  himself and as chief of medical staff,  Physiotherapist Ian Hunter took this time  to thank the volunteers Who help so greatly  in his department. Nick Vicurevich administrator, had greetings from the staff.  Jan Partington, activity aide ip  vacationing Lillian Peters' spot was introduced.  Children of staff members, Nick  Vicurevich, Ian Hunter, Wayne Robinson,  Dr. Rogers, Dr. Myhill-Jones and others  helped make this the merry party it was.  Santa Claus was a bountiful fellow in  red who had gifts for all the patients and  children present, in fact, he is often  referred to as Jack the Boundy.  The Junior Volunteers were much in  evidence as they aided m many ways, with  the patients sand serving food, the ten there  were, Wendy Flay, Diana Webb, Rhyl  Wood, Debbie Newman, Cindy Spence,  Sherry Friesen, Jenny Garnet, Patty Hall,  Lee-Ann Nestman, and Charlene Danroth..  ' The three elves helping Santa were Ina  Grafe, Margerite Poulsen and Vona  Clayton, memljers of auxiliaries to St.  Msiry's. Other Auxiliary members ai-$f  volunteers were Eileen Alexander, Jean  Paterson, Pat Fraser, ��� Elspeth, Logan,  Madeline Grose, Bunny Shupe, Marie  Hoffar and dlive Comyn.

TSie food was mostly provided by  Volunteer Director Muriel Eggins, with  sumptious sandwiches, hot tidbits, as well  as cakes* and-other'sweets provided by  auxiliary members from each Auxiliary.  Mary Redman, pianist, played for carol  singing and Alice Horseman, R.N. with  PEGGY CONNOR 8854347  her. beautiful voice, sang two Christmas  carols.

Candy striper Debbie Newman  received a special gift for being assistant  to Muriel Eggins this past year. The young  girls had a present for their Volunteer  Director Muriel for helping them in many  ways.  Start the new year off by becoming- a  volunteer and helping at the hospital, in  fact this month on January 19, the annual  volunteers meeting will be held at St.  Hilda's Church Hall 11 a.m., an excellent  way to join.  Mrs. Marie Hoffar's nieces and  nephews were up to Secret COve for their  annual ritual of decorating Aunt Marie's  tree, these are Ann-Marie, Rick, John,  Carol, Wally Voice. A welcome visitor  joining in was a humming bird who must  have decided this was a good year to stick  around.  World traveller, Lorraine Moffat, is  still on the move, appropriately this time  of year included a trip to Bethlehem and  Jerusalem, finding the country beautiful.  Sailing for Cyprus then to Beirut, Lorraine'  was on her way home, waiting in London  for a trip out, found waiting too expensive  so beaded back to Cyprus.  Meanwhile at Prince George, her sister  Lanie Robinson ended out 1976 giving birth  to a baby girl, Gillian Raneel. Grandparents Stan and Helen Moffat live in  Sechelt.  Christian Science  "Love worketh no ill to his neighbour,  therefore Love is the fulfilling of the law."  So said Paul in his epistle to the Romans.  (Romans 13-verse 10).  At Christmas, especially, the desire to  expresslove, to give love, and to receive it  is uppermost in everyone's mind. So it  should be throughout the year.  Mary Baker Eddy writes, "God is  Love. Can we ask Him to be more? ��� Shall  we plead for more at the open fount, which  is pouring forth more than we accept? ���  'God is the same yesterday, and today,  and forever'."

The concrete  foundation of this store building can  still be seen on the Boulevard at the  west side of Wharf Road.  Pioneer Sechelt  left many stories  By HELEN DAWE  In 1915 the B.C. government opened for  pre-emption a large area of land in West -  Sechelt which had previously been held  under reserve and logsged over. The  province had resurveyed these lands into  40 acre blocks and in April 1916 Edmund  Martin applied for one of them, D.L. 4296  on what is now the Norwest Bay Road, but  which in 1914 was labelled 'Government  Waggon Road;"-*  Ed Martin married Jeanie Kean and  sold five acres of his land to her father,  Robert Kean, f>r. Ed was Bert Whitaker's  first truck driver when Mr. Whitaker used  the trade name Sechelt Seaside Resort Co.  Robert Kean was a professional gardener who had operated a mushroom farm  on the lower mainland betw^een Marine  Drive and the North Arm of the Fraser  River. He supplied mushrooms to the old  Hotel Vancouver which was demolished  after the Second World War. The work was  heavy, so Mr. Kean left it to become head  gardenerfora Kerrisdaler-esidentnamed  von Roon, scion of a distinguished  Prussian family. When war broke out in  1914 von Roon skipped the country and left  eight of his employees without wages.  Robert Kean fell inlove with Sechelt on"  his first visit and in 1916 he brought his  family to live on the Peninsula. When he  had cleared sufficient land he entered the  flower and vegetable seed business, but  three years later he went bankrupt. He felt  too old to clear more land and expand the  business. For many years the beautiful  flower garden around his home gladdened  the eyes of all who passed by.  'Grandpa' Robert Kean died in 1937 and  his widow, Marthq, in 1941. Both are  buried in the graveyard at St. Hilda's  church, Sechelt. One of their sons, Robert  C. Kean, was local road foreman during  the depression of the 1930's and consequently he was in charge of the unemployed men who lived at the relief camp at  Wood Bay. The B.C. Public Works Report  for the year 1934-1935 reads in part as  follows:  "The only major construction-work  carried out in this district was on the  Thank you for your  patronage  In Iho  past.  Good wlftl.05 lor a  Happy & Prosperous  New Yoar  Lew ft Lee Baldwin  Big Maple Motel  Wilson Creek     .  T  T  Sechelt-Pender Harbour Road at Camps  901 and 902 by the Dept. of National  Defence, 1.6 miles being completed...also  3,491 lineal feet of cedar logs hewed and  built into culverts...Reconstruction and  widening was carried out, mainly by hand-  labour, on several minor roads to the  extent of 1.2 miles." By 1977 standards it  boggles the mind to think of men receiving  twenty cents per day to hand hew logs into  channels for water.  In 1920 a school was built on the Norwest Bay hill in the vicinity of Nickerson  Road. Robert C. Kean and his brother Alex  widened this school sometime in the later  1920's. Subsequently Bob Kean, was a  school trustee. Then in 1946 the old  building1 was mov-ed down to face Shorn-  cliffe Ave. on the Elementary School  grounds. In. 1976 the 1920 building was  moved once again to face Cowrie Street.  This is one pioneer building which the  citizens of Sechelt have loved sufficiently  well to preserve and School District No. 46  should be highly commended on its  restoration-progrim.  The third generation of Keans all attended the original West Sechelt School,  including Robert D. and Violet, children of  "Robert C, Kean, as well as Gwen and  Kathy, daughters of Alex Kean.  Issue No. 6 of the Madeira Park  publication Raincoast Chronicles contains  a four-page article by Alex Kean entitled  "Lost in the RainForrest'.' He Wrote that in  1918 when he was 16 years old he was laid  low by the big flu epidemic. After he began  to feel better he decided to leave the  logging camp on Vancouver Island where  he was employed- The last sentence of his  story: "The cheque's not very big but it's  enough to get me home to Sechelt."  Alex Kean was a man of many trades.  He worked on the tugs and he was employed by Bert Whitaker at his Doriston  logging camp. He also helped construct the  second Sechelt Indian Residential School,  the brick building completed in 1921. From  1927 to 1942 Alex Kean .drove truck in  Sechelt for the Union Steamship Co.  By the late 1930's the local schdbl board  (prior to District No. 46) felt able to  provide the children living in the centre of  the village with transportation to and from  the West Sechelt School. Alex Kean picked  the youngsters up at Jack Mayne's corner,  Cowrie St. and Inlet Ave., in the old open  Union truck .and drove them along the  rough gravelled road. The truck lacked riot  only sides but formal seats as well. It was,  however, a vast improvement over the  long climb up the Norwest Bay hill on foot  in all weathers and home again through  the dark woods on a winter's afternoon.  After Sechelt'a-flftrly settlers survived  the hardships of the 1930's the jobs which  opened up in Vancouver following the  outbreak of the 1939-1945 war were like  anna from heaven and there was a great  exodus from the community. Alex Kean  moved to Vancouver and went into war  work, using his skills as a carpenter.  During 1976 he completed writing a 224-  page history of Sechelt.  On Dec. 21, 1976 Alex Kean died in  Vancouver in his 74th year. He is survived  by his wife, Gladys, his dau.ghters Gwen  and Kathy, and five grandchildren. They  request that in lieu of flowers, donations be  made to the Heart Fund, St. Mary's  Hospital, Sechelt.  Thus once again may Alex Kean in his  own words come "home to Sechelt" in the  thoughts of his old friends.
