This decision was spurred by a letter from  the lawyers of Interfacial Designs and  Sechelt Lands, to companies operating in  the vUlage. J  The letter, contents of which were not  released, inferred unwarranted advice was  being given by village sources to people  seeking help in their business dealings with  Interfacial Designs, the council was told.  To discuss this matter council went into  committee, which mfeans their conversation  was not on the publi|"reeord.  After the meeting council gave The Times  permission to use the notes its reporter made  during the committee meeting.  Village clerk Tom Wood said people had  appeared at the village office asking for  advice on their business dealings with In  terfacial Designs.

Bob Turlock of the Gibsons detachment said Sunday roadblocks will be set up  nightly to deter the drinking driver and take  'anyone* wTiohW.^^  He said routine checks of the safety functions of stopped automobiles will also be  made.  The roadblocks started last Friday and  will continue until after New Year's Eve.  Turlock said the first night the roadblock  was set up three people who had been  drinking to excess had been caught.  Heavy fines are imposed for impaired  driving or driving with a blood-aicohol content over .08 per cent.  During the normal course of the year  RCMP simply make spot checks.  User costs fOnthe Sechelt sewer system,  says Sechelt Alderman Norm Watson, are  clearly biased in favor of residents.  "They are slanted to reflect the cost  benefit ratios of two types of users,  residential and non-residential. Commercial  users benefit more from sewers and therefore  will foot a proportionately higher bill for  them," Watson says.  Whether Sechelt residents agree with  Watson and the proposed rate structure, and  with the whole idea alj sewers will not be  known until Jan. 18.  All residents who are on the voters list will  be Invited to a public Information meeting on  sewers Jan. 18. The area slated to get sewers  at the moment utretches from the Indian  Reserve boundary to Sechelt Elementary and  from the Strait of Georgia to Sechelt Inlet.  (District lots 303 and 304).  Village council and the regional board,  which has assumed the responsibility for  sewers, must know what tho public thinks  about them. Dissent ond merits of tho dissent  must bo analyzed by council with tho end  result of deciding whothor the installation of  sewers In tho vlllago muast go to a referendum. As it stands nt tho moment Watson ond  tho vlllago hopes for favourable public  reaction ot tho Information meeting so that a  proclamation can, simply bo made.  , :  Onco tho vlllngo 1ms proclaimed tho  sewers nro going in, there Is a 30 day waiting  period nt tho end of which dissent for sowors  will be considered by council.  "Whether we go ahead at that point will be  a political decision by council," Watson says,  "Victoria is in support of the proclamation  route rather than the referendum route to  avoid election costs that must be borne by the  taxpayer."  Council could decide at the end of the 30  day waiting period to send the decision on the  sewers to public referendum. ;  The big question of course is cost.  Watson, whose term on council expires  Jan. 1, has been working on a sewer system  for Sechelt for six years. He has recently  completed a rate structure. All the regional  board and village need now Is the green light  from the public, if Victoria approves the rate  structure.  How much an individual homeowner will  have to pay to be hooked Into sewers Is  determined along the following lines. There  will be a $45 users fee for each house. A 60  cents per foot charge for taxable frontage on  each property will also bo applied. All village  residents' property taxes will go up two mills  on top of that. Therefore a homeowner with a  houso on a property with 00 feet of taxable  frontago and an assessment value of $7500  (average for Sechelt In 1975) will pay $96 a  year for sowers.  If a resident decides to hook up to tho  sowers while construction on his street Is  carried out, Wntson says, ho will only bo  ���Seo Pago A-3  A Meditation on "the Nativity  JWiqlight from. aatar,on this coldc.it, of  nights, ,  Bathes tho ox and tho ass breathing  warmth on my wlfo,  Three mon In ermine havo followed its  flight,  To kneol In tho dust and rojolco In ills,  llfo;  A prophetic voice from the grave haa  arisen,  A child In bom n son Is Riven.

The conversation, which  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  ardiind, 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  flat broke because I bought a whole  bunch of thingsmid 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 ta waste."  i. "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  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 eiijoy 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?  This is the final edition of The Times  for 1975.  We will take a one week holiday from  our publishing schedule to better enjoy  the company of family and friends  during the holiday season. The office  closes today and will not be re-opening  until December 30. We will also be  closed on the January 1 holiday. After  that it will be business as usual with our  first edition of the New Year coming out  on January IP"  This being both the final edition of the  year and our Christmas edition, it seems  fitting that there are a number of people  we should say thank you to for helping us  out.  First is Jack Miller j the Gibsons  teacher   contributed   the >ppem | * A  Meditation on the Nativity' which ap1-'  pears on our front page today.  Second there's Kurt Reichel. The  Selma Park artist, who along with wife  Deb Ede decorated storefronts with  Christmas themes to add to the holiday  spirit of the village of Sechelt and who  has been doing and will continue to do a  regular stint as our staff cartoonist,  supplied the sylized Nativity scene on  our front page.  ��� People who deserve special thank  you's include our area correspondents.  Jock Bachop in Pender Harbour, Mary  Tinkley in Halfmoon Bay, Peggy Connor  in Sechelt and Margaret Jones in Gibsons have done an outstanding job for us  and we want them to know we are  grateful.  Laurie Beeman, a recent addition to  our regular contributors, is reporting  the goings-on at Elphinstone and if her  early work is any indication, she has a  bright future in the business.  She is only one of a number of regular  contributors who are all working toward  a common end ��� to make The Times~as  representative as possible of all aspects  of life on the* Sunshine Coast. They are  too numerous to mention, but all are  .greatly appreciated.  On their behalf and on behalf of our  regular staff, Pearl, Laurie, Peter,  Murray, Leslie and Don, we would like  to take this opportunity to wish all our  readers the Merriest of Christmases and  a Happy and Prosperous New Year.  Leslie Gourlay was an Older man when I  knew him. My mother tells a story about him  that took place one Christmas long before I  was even thought of. For me the story still  embodies an important part of what  Christmas is all about.  Leslie Gourlay was a farmer in southwestern Ontario. He and his wife Mary raised  their three children on 100 acres of land near  London, Ontario. With the farm they reaised  a variety of animals and crops, mixed farming,I guess it could be called. It was a hard  but good life. There were few frills but there <  was much love.  During the depression everybody had it  tough and Ontario farmers were no exception. My mother says the Gourlay children  were quite young during the depression but  the poverty at the time only seems significant  to them in retrospect. For the most part kids  were unaware that there was a depression.  Even if they were aware Christmas still  came, and it was the best time of the year.   _ :  One Christmas in the early years of the  depression was particularly bad. Leslie  Gourlay and his wife had no money with .  which to buy anything particularly special for  their children. A doll had been made for the  daughter and Leslie had made a toy train for  one son and a rocking horse for the other  younger son. Both toys were carved out of  wood in his spare time during the fall. But  what made (Christmas p.articularly special for  these children were oranges." Oranges were  scarce and expensive. Eyer^g|||ristmas  Leslie and Mary Gourlay obtained two  oranges for each child. Mother says oranges  were fancied more by children in those days  than candy could ever be to children  nowadays.  Their farm was situated in what is called  the Ontario snow belt and that year it had  lived up to its name. Five feet had fallen the  week before Christmas and the three mile  stretch of road into St. Mary's, the closest  town, was impassable.  The horses could not walk let alone pull a  sleigh through that amount of snow.  To obtain oranges for his children Leslie  Gourlay had to get to town. And because he  had no money he would have to trade some of  his own produce for them. Eggs are what he  had plenty of, somehow he just needed to get  them into town. Six dozen eggs would fetch  the six oranges.  The day before Christmas the roads were  still impassable. He couldn't leave during  the day because of the work which had to be  done. In the evening the children were off to  bed early, of course very excited about what  the morrow would hold for them. There would  be presents and turkey and maple sugar  candy saved from the previous spring and  there just might be some oranges.  After the children were in bed Leslie  Gourlay put on his c<jat, hat and boot,? and  '���' ��� ^eitt-'biit'' iir^tf:tlij^'-^bi|9''..de.gree weathefc. He  brought the small hand sleigh to the house  and loaded 10 dozen eggs onto it.  On that moonlite night he dragged the  sleigh the three miles across the fields to the  small cluster of lights that marked St.  Mary's. The snow was so high, it was easier to  cut across the fields because he could walk  over the fences.  After midnight, some six hours after  starting, he returned to the farm house, very  cold. But he had ten oranges. Everybody in  the family would have two oranges each that  Christmas.  Finding oranges in their stockings the next  day, the children were extremely pleased.  They would spend the day just eating one.  The children never found out until many  years later how itjhad came about that they  'had oranges that Christmas. It makes my  mother sad and happy at the same time to  think about it now.  She, naturally, was the daughter in the  family. The memory is sad for her because  that Christmas was so long ago and Leslie  Gourlay is now dead. It makes her happy  because she realizes those oranges were just  a small token of the love and devotion her  father and mother had for their children. The  important thing to her was that love her  . parents accented each Christmas with gifts  was there year round for all the years her  parents were alive.  When I knew Leslie Gourlay and his wife, I  think they must have treated me the same  way they treated their own children. They  had noreligionbutthey werewonderful, kind  people. And although they never had much in  the way of material wealth they had the  wisdom to raise three loving human beings.  People, I believe, also capable of raising a  family properly; My mother has never forgot  the love she has from Her parents. Neither  have her brothers. Although! am a bit bias, I  think it has shown with their own families.  I guess the point is, there is no greater gift  you can give your children than love. And  Christmas should only be the time of year  - when a perennial love for them is expressed a  little more visually���in the form of a gift.  I think in the long run it pays off ��� for  everyone. The love has to be meaningful  enough to last for generations.  n  W W J to  TN    TT f  i��\  ���ft*.*." ��* mm  "V-.

However, if the  resident waits until the Whole village system  has been installed and then decides to hookup  he will be charged $250.  Apartments that are situated above stores  will be charged $40 per year for sewers.  Watson says this price should not reflect  excessive high rents.  Homeowners will also have to pay for  installation of sewage lines across their  property to their property line. But the village  will be helping out to try and keep costs down.  These costs would vary according to the  length of pipe required to stretch from the  sewer hookup to the house on the property.  Village clerk Tom Wood will approach  homeowners before the main seweriine goes  down their street to see if they will participate  in a joint venture with other residents on their  block to have one contracting company install  all the property sewer lines, this would keep  the costs below the price to have one properly  line installed.  The costs to businesses for sewers,  depending on their size, are significantly  higher than the average householder's fee.  From an environmental viewpoint sewers  seem beneficial. Watson says that because  the water table beneath the village is high  few septic tanks work perfectly. "It is obvious  sewage is getting into the water system and  consequently the ocean. Sechelt's lagoon is a  good reflection Of the quality of the water.  There are so many nutrients in the water that  there is an incredible variety of marine life.  It has been my experience that septic  systems only last an average of 10 years. And  now under ttie new health regulations people  can be asked to dig up their systems for inspection if there is a complaint. If it is faulty  the system has to be brought up to standard.  It could be cheaper to hook into the sewer  system.  "Without sewers the sOwage situation can  only get worse," he says.  It is a well established fact that the septic  systems in Sechelt's business sector are  running at capacity. Watson thinks a sewer  system will be advantageous for growth in the  village.  He says that without sewers, developers  have a harder time raising funds for construction.  If and when the sewer system is installed  Watson believes the treatment plant will be  located near the south end of Wharf Street.  The outfall from the plant will extend 1500  feet out into the Strait. The site of the plant  will not be definitely determined until  engineers conduct an on-site survey.  Presently, the sewage system the Indian  Reserve and the St. Mary's Hospital are  hooked into as an outfall extending 200 feet  offshore.  Watson says the treatment plant will have  a capacity to handle double the number of  ��� From Page A-l  residents that now live in the village. He says  that a large scale development such as a  condominium would be expected to contribute significantly to the costs of expanding  the treatment plant if necessary.  Provided the public likes the thought of  sewers, Watson thinks construction could  start ori them by the summer.  MORE ABOUT ...  & Elves Club hampers  ��� From Page A-l  money donated but said she thought the club  did better this year than last although they  gave 128 hampers to families last year.  The hampers are substantial. Each  contained milk, soup, mixed vegetables,  tinned fish and meat, coffee, candy, pickles,  pudding, fruit juice and cereals, only to  mention some of the items. Turkey and  Christmas cake were also in each hamper.  According to the number and age of  children in each family to receive a hamper,  appropriate gifts were also included.  Club members spent numerous hours  simply dividing gifts into the age groups for  which they would be most suitable.  The families who received the hampers  are not known by the Elves Club. Club  volunteers work in co-ordination with the  Human Resources-Department, the Sechelt  Indian Band Council, and the Department of  Health. These organizations supply the  necessary information, including addresses,  of the needy families. People also phone the  club to tell them about families which could  use Christmas assistance.  Only the drivers who deliver the hampers  would know to whom the hampers are going.  The club also goes to the hospital every  year with a rosebud and vase for all the  people unfortunate enough to be spending the  holiday season in St. Mary's. This Christmas  the club hopes to make a special presentation  to the hospital.  This organization to help the less fortunate  actually started four years ago with one  couple making up, and giving, the first  hamper.  The original Gibsons couple are still  heavily involved with the club's activities.  With their efforts the club has grown to the  point where there are nearly 200 members.  The club was incorporated under the societies  act.  There is probably no other club that has  membership dues quite like this one. To  belong you must give a penny a day for the  year and donate one food item per month.  The club spokesman said it is a big job  every year and hopes more people will give  up some of their time to help next year.  MORE ABOUT .. .  o Sechelt Village  ��� From Page A-l  building houses in Seaside Villages in Sechelt.  The company has built approximately 40  homes.  Village council said it considered itself in a  tricky position with the complaints. It didn't  know what to tell individuals and still stay  J within its legal bounds. Wood said he was  taking the brunt of the predicament because  he had to deal face to face with the complainants.  Alderman Dennis Shuttleworth said it was  the village lawyers opinion that the village  could advise complainants to go to the Better  Business Bureau and to go to a lawyer.  .Alderman Watson said the village cannot  act as a legal office. "We can only work  within the Municipal Act and the Building  Code."  Shuttleworth said he was, "concerned  about the good name of Sechelt if the situation  with Interfacial Designs got to the point  where there is a public uproar."  Alderman Frank Leitner tried to add a  balanced perspective. He said Interfacial  Designs had built almost forty homes and  that most of the owners were happy with the  houses.  The committee passed a recommendation  that if any person came to the village with  problems in dealing with a company, they  would be informed to seek the advice of the  Better Business Bureau or a lawyer. .  Bud Gairns, Interfacial Designs president,  has said his building schedule had been  delayed because the batch plant used by the  company to mix cement had been shut down  by the village for nearly six weeks.  It was mentioned at Friday's meeting that  the batch plant may again be closed Sown.  Committee was told the person who had  sold the batch plant to Interfacial Designs  had not received total payment for it and that  he may be forced to shut the plant down.  The Times was unable to contact the batch  . plant owners before press time.  Council also gave notice of motion that its  building by-law would be amended to allow  the building inspector to charge for inspections circumnumerary to the four inspections a builder receives as part of his  building permit.  Alderman Watson said the village's  building inspector was upset over the number  of inspections he had to do on the same  houses.  Watson said the inspector should have  been charging extra for more than the  allowed inspections a long time ago. "If he  did, the builders would have been more inclined to do things right the first time."  Speed does kill.

Bding laid, low with a bout of pneumonia I  found myself grateful to be accepted into the  wftrm friendly little world that is St. Mary's  Hospital and where this column was written.  From the moment I wast admitted, I was  made to feel very much at home. Not being  confined to bed<,Khavebeen able to wander  around my floor observing the various activities which go on daily, and must say I am  greatly impressed by the ever cheerful efficiency of the staff.  Take the nurses and aides for instance.  From fluffing up a pillow to shaving or  washing the aged and infirm, to cheering up  the low in spirit or simply joking with the up  and about patients, they make the days pass  in easy relaxed fashion. I kid you not, I am  enjoying life so much here when the time  comes for me to leave, they'll probably have  to drag me out forcibly.  A CHARACTER  I had a roommate who was discharged  recently. Definitely a character^ he was an  excitable French Canadian who arrived in  hospital after living for seven .days in vodka  land. Duriig the ambulance trip, his overworked ticker gave up the ghost and Jean was  in deep trouble. Luckily for our comotose  herd, thl staff, who are prepared for any kind  of emergency, pulled him round with external  heart massage and electric shock treatment  among other things, and Our hero lived to tell  the tale. He complained bitterly about being  bruised all over his body when he came to,  and when I told him to quit complaining on  account of he was5 fortunate to be alive, he  said he never felt anything, when he was  dying, coming back to life was what hurt.  Dear funny Jean, I hope he stays off the  sauce.  The emergency ward is on this floor and  something is always going oh. It was interesting to note that a closed circuit  television screen faces theau-cses station. The  camera taking the picturjfjsi fofeussed on the  emergency entrance and^^anambulance  backs up to the door, the isteff has (me to get  to their action stations ||i the emergency  ward. Most efficient organization.  VAMPIRE V   ,  Also on this iloor, is Athe ^tensive $are  ���by Jock Bachop 883-9056  ward, I saw one patient in there all hooked up  to various equipment and I could watch hla  heart beat as it showed on what looked like a  television screen. There were staff members  in that ward at all times. There are sad and  funny things to see and hear in this and I  imagine any other hospital. Nurses with  specific tasks get inevitable nicknames. The  one who takes blood samples is invariably  greeted with 'Here comes the vampires'; and  Page A-4 The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, December 24,1975 ,  .dropped over to visit "ne (the Times office is  top damn handy) and said if I was going to be  sitting around all day doing toothing except  ogling the nurses, I might as well turn out  some work for the old firm. That's show biz I  -guess. I may be unable to lift my head off the  pillow, but as long as I can reach the  typewriter keys it's on with the show.  GOODIES  - , The 'Goodies Girl' just came around with a  tray of pills and I have taken so much of  the nurse who comes around wi-tha toy tf, t^ j ratUe ^hen 1 walk. i sound like a guy  medication is called the 'Goodies* Girl.'      >:  playing the marracas.  I have to/ admit even though life here is  I think the sad part of hospital is watching  the very old lay in bed staring at nothing and  barely responsive to any word directed at  them. However the feeling of sadness is ;at [  least partly dispelled -when one sees the  tender loving care bestowed on them by the  dedicated nursing staff. God bless them all.  The spirit of Christmas came to the  hospital today with the arrival of many trees  and a group ladies from the hospital auxiliary  who put them up and decorated them  beautifully. I have often heard people complain about hospital food, but as.far as I'm  concerned it's very good. It must be a  tremendous undertaking to cook meals for so  many people, a lot of whom are on restricted  diets. I believe they are doing a hell of a job. ,  CHARLIE'   ���   ��� '"V'     P'r'P;,  The spread of ages on this ward is  remarkable; from afourdays^pld baby to 91-  year old Charlie Foster.

They  call her that affectionately as they claim she  is so good with the needle they don't know she  has done the job until it is over.  I notice our good Dr. Paetkau is back on  the job here and I'm sure all his patients are  extremely glad to see him. He gave it a good  try in the election, but I'm sure he will be  much more value here in the hospital.  Welcome back Doctor.  Actually, I was not going to bother writing  a column this week, but editor Don Morberg  very pleasant J, sure miss all the folks at  Madeira Park. 1* miss too, the hot stove  sessions at Kelly's with the regular gang.  Good old Kelly, he heard Marge was coming  down to see me and he made a super special  hamburger and gave her it to take to me. It  was delicious.  Dr. Swan, whom I am fortunate to have  looking after my health, tells me I should be  home in time to read this issue when it comes  out. He is a fine gentleman and I shall always  be grateful to him for the care he has taken on  my behalf. I couldn't ask for more..  We had a rather nice happening the other  day. A group of youngsters from Gibsons  Elementary School toured the hospital  ; singing the traditional songs ef Christmas. It  was a pleasure to watch their fresh young  faces and listen to their clear voices as they  Jsang all the old favorites. They certainly  brightened the patients day.  Other people enjoying the hospitality of St.  Mary's from my neck of the woods are Mrs.  ���Ethel Williams of Earls Cove, Mrs. Vera  - Grafton of Egmont, Mrs. Doug Williams of  Earls Cove and Mrs. Gordon Edwardson of  Frances Peninsula.  At this special time of year, I think it  would be nice to repeat the poem my mother  wrote to me at Christmas last year. Here it is:  'Peace on Earth'  Let's keep this thought,  Fixed firmly on our minds.  We can't all travel the world around,  So where we are just let's be kind.  Not just on this - this holy day,  To celebrate His birth,  But in the days that lie ahead,  Let there be peace on earth...  '". It's time to wrap this up, so let me say  many thanks to all the kind people who sent  me their best wishes while I was laid up and  special thanks to the beautiful young lady  , who sent me a get well card.  To the wonderful staff of St. Mary's  Hospital ��� thank you for the kindness, care  and attention you bestowed on me, I shall  always remember it. Bless you all.  To all who read this ��� I wish the best  Christmas ever, and a New Year full of  happiness and prosperity.  * >a^'/ I,  JmlStPL  PENDER  HARBOUR  correspondent pneumonia.

The first plaque was lost in  the fire the destroyed Elphinstone school two  years ago.  The wooden plaque was unveiled at a  Christmas assembly by carver Hans  Peterson.  About ten years ago, Lord Elphinstone of  Scotland, said that Elphinstone school could  make use of his family coat of arms in any  way it thought fit. A number of attempts to  achieve a carving of the coat of arms failed.  In 1971, Petra Peterson enrolled In grade  10, announcing that her father, having heard  of the problem, volunteered to carve the  piece.  Peterson was classified as a master  carver in Germany, spending some years of  his trade there.  Before tho unveiling of the beautiful  wooden plaque, Mr. Peterson spoke to tho  assembled students on Importance of matching mind and hand In combined intelligence. ,    ���  Both junior and senior bands entertained  tho teachers and students as woll.

To friends old  and new, Greetings  of the Season.  VARIETY STdftl  Madeira Pork  The second snowfall of the season arrived  the day before the date set for the Christmas  dinner of the Welcome Beach Community  Association. At 8 o'clock in the morning of  December 13 telephones were ringing to get a  work party out to clear the snow from the  parking lot at the hall and to set up tables. -  Volunteers .arrived from-all parts of the area.  Gerry and Sheryl Grognet couldn't get  their car onto the road, but determined to  give a hand with the shovelling, they walked  all the way to the hall from their home in  Welcome Woods. The roads remained icy  throughout the day and there were anxious  moments of wondering whether the caterer  Helen Robertson of Sechelt would safely  reach the hall with the dinner. But the fears  were ungrounded. Mrs. Robertson has been in  the catering business in Toronto and it would  take more than a few inches of snow to deter  her. She and her crew were all set to serve  dinner right on schedule. And a delicious  dinner it was too ���turkey and all the--  trimmings, piping hot.  President Alex Ellis proposed a toast to all  those who had contributed towards making  the hall the fine place it is today from the  pioneers of 1958 to the present time. Toasts  were proposed to the men by Jean Petit and to  the ladies. by-Bill Fraser. Thea Leuchte  proposed a toast to Mr. Ellis who was serving  his fourth term as president of the  association. Several new members were  introduced and two guests welcomed were  Ole Kadin who had arrived from the  snowbound Yukon to find^ refuge in a snowy  Sunshine Coast, and Ian Campbell who was.  travelling in his sailboat Buttercup on his way  from Cortes Island to his home at Sidney and  had Stopped off at Halfmoon Bay for a visit at  the Tinkley and Birk homes.  The programme presented by Thea  Leuchte displayed a wealth of talent. Marj  Morgan and Ted Surtees entertained with,  their songs, and Blanche McCrady played  'Evening in Hawaii' on her Hawaiian guitar.  Olive   Clear   presented   two   Christmas  recitations in her usual inimitable style and  Mary Brooke gave a piano recital of Chopin's  Polonaise. Ruth Forrester, accompanying  herself on her guitar, captivated her audience  with her repertoire of unusual songs, so  delightfully presented. A new discovery was  the fine voice of Roy Hill who sang 'My Wild  Irish Rose' and 'Silent Night'. Soloists for the  carol singing were Marj Morgan, Roy Hill,  "Ted Surtees, Bert James, Kay Dombroski  and Olive Comyn. Mrs. Brooke accompanied  Mrs. Morgan's songs and Mrs. Ruby Hatcher  did her usual fine performance accompanying the carol singing and the other  soloists.  For the past few weeks, a mystery at the  Welcome Beach Hall has been the handsome  new clock, big enough to be seen from the  remotest corner of the hall. No one knew  whence it came, with the possible exception  of President Ellis and he is certainlyone who  can keep a secret. But on Saturday the secret  was out and it was discovered that the clock  was a gift from Guy and Olive Clear, two of  the association's most faithful and popular  members, who were given a standing ovation.  On Decehiber 14, the Welcome Beach Hall  again resounded to the fun and joy of  Christmas celebrations when more than 50  children and 20 adults attended the childrens  Christmas party. After a show of cartoon  films the children sang .Christmas carols  during which Old Santa himself arrived. To  welcome him, the children sang another  carol, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", and  there was great excitement as presentswere  distributed. For refreshments .there were'��*���  sandwiches, homemade cookies, tea, coffee  and juice.  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Commission who organized the party report that it  was their most successful Christmas party  yet and express thanks to Keith Comynrthe  film projectionist, to Judy Parish for accompanying the carol singing, to Lynne  Jorgenson and Jean Trousdell for taking care  of the catering and a very special thank you to  Morgan Thompson who used his influence to  get Santa to take time from his busy schedule  to make a call at the Welcome Beach Hall.  In a schoolroom gaily decorated with  Christmas designs and make-believe stained  glass windows, the children Of Halfmoon Bay  School proudly presented their Christmas  concert to their parents and friends last  Wednesday. The thirteen children of Grades  1, 2, and 3 gave a beautiful and dignified  performance of 'No Room at the Inn'.  Mark Zuidema competently handled the  demanding role of the Innkeeper with  Adreanne Martel as his boy. Geoffrey  Grognet and Dominique Martel were  travellers. Dominique doubled the part of  Mary, with Kirby North as Joseph. The four  grade 1 shepherds were played by Danny  Richardson, Frederic Boss) Kim Doyle and  Kenny Sorensen. Margaret Connor; Sonya  Sorensen and Chris Petty handsomely portrayed the parts of the 3 Wise Mon with Billy  Trousdell as their servant. Following the play  the children sang carols in English, French.  Spanish and German, accompanied by Mrs.  Thea Leuchte with her guitar. Refreshments  served by Mrs. Bill Pallant included a large  Christmas cake, the gift of Mrs. Mary Lehman, the school custodian. In preparing the  programme, Mrs. M. Davie was assisted by  Mrs. Tinkley and Mrs. Leuchte.  The Cliff Connor family and Mrs. Mary  Walker travelled to Langley recently for the  25th wedding celebration of Peggy Connor's  sister and brother-in-law, Connie and Ralph  Smart. The anniversary party was held at the  Langley home of the Smart's daughter and  son-in-law, Linda and Ron Anderson.  The carol singers who have been entertaining dinner guests at the Jolly Roger  during the pa.st few days are the gifted  Murphy sisters, Deirdre, Sheila, Louise and  Stephanie.

Twenty-one people ranging from 19 to 49  years of age wrote the five examinations  designed by the Department of Education to  qualify adults for a Grade 12 Equivalency  Certificate.  Twenty of the participants passed all the  tests and only one failed the math-test but  passed the other four. Nobody was more  surprised over this splendid result than the  students themselves. The B.C. average is 85  per cent and the Sunshine Coast participants  scored 99 per ce-nfcr-  Some of the students signed up for the test  in order to find oi~it about their weak subjects  and the fact that they passed proves that most  adults have learned more through living and  reading than they presume.  Personal satisfaction was the reason for  four of the students for taking the tests;  almost half of them took the tests because  they are in&Hiiti& WfuHneV schooling, four  to qualify for advancement in their present  job and three hoped that the certificate will  help them obtain employment.  The General Educational Development  Tests are a series of five comprehensive  examinations in the areas of English Composition, Social Studies, Natural Sciences,  .Literature and Mathematics. The tests are  made up of multiple choice questions, and  they are designed to measure the student's  ability to understand and reason rather than  to test on facts and memory.  The next test session is scheduled to take  place in Sechelt in February and those interested are asked to register with the School  Board Office no later than February 1. The  registration fee is $5.  Individual tutoring in one of more subjects  is available every Wednesday evening at  Sechelt Elementary School, starting January  14 at 7:30 p.m. The fee is $15 for 20 hours and  $15 for three workbooks.  After the course is finished the student is  encouraged to sell the book back to the in-  * straetoFat^^txJpy.  F0r further information and registration,  call co-ordinator Karin Hoemberg, School  Board Office 886-2225.  ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL got a thorough  brightening this holiday season. After  hospital volunteers put in many hours  decorating the various wards in  Christmas themes and setting up  Christmas trees in the foyer and in many  activity rooms, other groups contributed  Christmas color. Here a group of Cubs,  and Sea Scouts from the Pender H.ar-  bour area present poinsettas to the  extended care wing of the hospital. Cubs  are Randy Cummings, Steven  Prescesky and Jeremy Thompson along  with Cubmaster Jack Vander Poll.  Scouts are Ronald King, Bruce  Richardson and Randy Banyay.  ��� Timephoto  Sechelt Village Council gave tentative  approval Wednesday to a local developer to  create a subdivision for one lot.  Len Van Egmond, owner of Suncoast  Estates, told council he needed this approval  because a church w|.s interested in pur-,  chasing what would'hstve'been six house lbts.

Gordon said, "if there was construction  going on, I would have got a building permit."  He also said he couldn't understand why  the, building inspector needed to be accompanied by the village clerk.  Tom Wood, village clerk, said he had  received a complaint from one of Gordon's  neighbours and that the building inspector  had acted on it?  The informer said there was construction  being done on Gordon's property without a  permit, Wood said. "The building inspector  asked me to accompany him to the Gordon  property, just in case he had a problem."  He said they found no construction on the  Gordon property and left.  '  The Canadian Building Code, adopted as a  by-law by the village, allows the building  inspector to inspect all construction in the  village.  Gordon asked Wood if the building inspector always acted on gossip.  Alderaian-elect Morgan Thompsonsaid he  thought the village has an obligation to check  out all complaints. "There are a lot of additions made without building pennits."  Alderman Norm Watson said he thought  the building inspector was not entirely objective. He said he could see no reason why  the inspector must take a witness around with  him on his duties.  Wood said if Watson knew the relationship  between Gordon and the building inspector,  he would understand.  "Personalities should not enter into this  type of thing," Watson said.  Alderman Dennis Shuttleworth said  nobody should be subject to gossipy complaints.  The complaint was simply aired, no  r^olution by council was made on it.  ���\sw  During the last three months, two groups  of 'homemakers' have attended a Basic  Training Program and 23 women have successfully completed the course.  The first group will be awarded certificates on Tuesday, December 2 at the  Health Unit in Gibsons, and the second group  will receive certificates on Thursday,  December 4 at approx. 12 o'clock noon.  The course Has proven very useful to the  homemakers who are extremely interested in  Increasing their knowledge in order to do the  best possible job for those who depend on  their help.  It Is the intention to follow this course up  with a monthly In-service lecture on any  subject considered relevant by tho  homemakers.  During tho month of October, 39  homemakers have spent 1425 hours providing  assistance to people In need.

Alderman Dennis Shuttleworth reported  there had been $2,000 worth of work done in  four and one half days but that the two loads  of timber recovered from the clearing should  fetch $800.  Sechelt council will increase the stipend it  pays to the civil defence co-ordinator in the  area.  Alderman Shuttleworth suggested Sechelt  follow Gibsons lead and increase the village  stipend to $120 per year. If the regional board  also increases its share of the co-ordinators  salary, the total salary should rise from  $2,100 to $3,600. Art McPhee of West Sechelt is  the co-ordinator.  In his report from the lagoon committee,  Alderman Norm Watson said he suggested  the committee apply to the village for funding  to conduct improvements to the lagoon park.  He suggested that the committee apply for  support on the basis that the village would  contribute $2 for every dollar raised by the  committee. The maximum raised by the  committee for which the village would contribute on this basis should be $500, he said.  Alderman Watson said he expected the  Committee on Government should reach a  conclusion within 90 days and offered to  remain as part of the committee on the  village's behalf until it terminated.  He said that committee accepts non-  elected people.  He also said he would be available to sit on  the village recreation committee if council so  desired.  Council was pleased to accept the  volunteer help.  Village clerk Tom Wood officially confirmed the LIP grant the village had applied  for had not been approved.  Wood also reported the village had  received its $30,000 grant from the provincial  government. The money came as part of the  natural gas revenue sharing act and is to be  used on road upgrading.  Wood said most of the money had already  been spent as part of the road budget.

BY MAURICE HEMSTREET  ���'   ',"���'     ��� , 'a  Hi, there, fellow square dancers. Pull up a  chair and bend an ear as the first part of the  75-76 Square dance season comes to an end  with many memories, much laughter and a  lot of f tin had by all. ���#'  On December 12, with the snow snowing  and the wind blowing, I went up to the hall  early to make sure that we could make the  hill. There was only about aninch of snow and  I had no problems at all. After getting my  equipment set up, checking the weather again  and finding still only one inch of snow, I  phoned good old Harry at Gibsons to say that  the hill and road was no problem. Then I went  about learning a new round dance and the  next thing I knew, up the hill came the first  load of square dancers. Kind of ornery  looking lot and when I asked what the  problem was, they said, "Look outside." I did  and what I saw was show good. Yeh! about  six inches of the white stuff had landed while I  wasn't watching. To make a long story short,  those who didn't make the hill, parked down  below and walked Up. Its the first time I have  ever put on six pair of glasses (they wouldn't  hit a fellow with glasses on, but just the same  I wasn't taking chances.) Anyway, about  three sets turned out and after telling each  other that only an idiot or square dancer  would come out on a night like that, a good  time was had.  The Country Stars next square dance will  be New Years Eve, at St. Hildas Hall in  Sechelt, 8:30 p.m. or whenever a set is  squared up on the floor, 'til? ��� and all square  dancers welcome if you are in the area, fun  for all and all for fun, sorry, no booze, if the  caller has to stay sober, so do the dancers.  The Country Stars will be back at The  Sunshine Coast Golf Club Hall to. start their  second half of the square dance season Jan. 9,  1976, sorry, same old callers, same time.

The  Campaign, which was delayed more than,  thirty days by the national postal dispute, last  year realized contributions totalling $553,360.  The target for the 1975 Campaign, now  underway, was set in May at $600,000, but  B.C. Tuberculosis-Christmas Seal Society  officials4 now feel that unless there is a  dramatic change in the response pattern in  the next few days, this figure will not be  achieved.  Contributions to the Christmas Seal  Campaign are used to combat respiratory  diseases including emphysema, asthma,  chronic bronchitis and tuberculosis. This is  accomplished through programs of public  and professional education, medical research  grants, patient rehabilitation, assistance in  the construction of medical facilities,  equipment purchases for medical schools and  hospitals, and free chest x-rays for the public,  Christmas Seal officials are now  evaluating program priorities in the event  that the target Is not reached, and changes  become necessary.  The Christmas holidays have arrived!  This is a time for visits with friends, and-  family reunions. Food and drink play an  important part in these happy gatherings.  And so, during the holidajPseason, we tend to  increase bur consumption' of "non-food"  items ��� pop; chips, candy, and .super-sweet  baked goods. But festive foods can be  nutritious as well as delicious as the recipe  below for Banana Nut Squares demonstrates.  Take a minute to look over the recipe before  you read; .on.  ��� If you look at the ingredients, you will see  foods from each of the four food groups. You  will be reading more about the food groups in  later articles. For now, all I will say is that  this recipe contains yogurt from the milk  group, eggs from the meat group, bananas  from ttie fruit and vegetable group and whole  wheat flour from the bread;^roup. The whole  wheat flour, soy grits, pej^juts and sunflower  seeds combine to increase the protein value.  So don't change the amounts and don't leave  anything out.  The raisins are optional but they do make  th6 squares extra special. I should point out  that ttie dental profession is warning against  raisins as snacks for children. This is because  raisins are sweet and stick to the teeth, increasing the chances of cavities. If you make  these bars for cavity prone kids or for  children who do not brush their teeth as well  as they should, it would be wise to omit the  raisins.  If you have young children, they will love  to help with the baking. My preschoolers have  great fun pouring in the ingredients and  stirring the batter. All I have to do is the  .measuring. (And the cleaning up!) Baking  with your children is a good project for a  rainy, "nothing to do" winter afternoon.  Serve these spicy banana nut squares with  hot chocolate for a perfect holiday treat.

They  ranged widely in experience, but all were  interested in finding out more about this  Nordic sport.  '. Vincent Bracewell gave a brief history of  cross country skiing and discussed the kind of  equipment needed by the skier. He displayed  skis, boots, and'poles as well as the waxes  which are applied to the ski base. Proper  clothing and miscellaneous gear such as  pack, extra ski tip, and sno-seal for boots  were also shown to the group.  Wayne Greggain, president of the local  Tetrahedron Ski Club, was present and he  informed the group of the club's current lack  of activity. The club owns a snow cat which  was badly vandalized and is no longer in  operating condition. A dwindling membership in the club and difficult access to the  snow have temporarily closed the club.  The group decided that one way to make  skiing available on the Sunshine Coast would  be through club action. It was decided to  reorganize the Tetrahedron Ski Club for both  crosis country and downhill skiers. A meeting  for this purpose is to be held January 20,7:30  p.m., at Robert's Creek Elementary* School  Kindergarten. At that time a new executive  will be formed. Some of the topics the new  group will be concerned with are access to the  mountains, lessons and equipment rentals,  group*outings and the possible purchase of a  snowmobile.  ^-..  ^  ' a ���' v_ *  If you're  out of shape,  you're out  of the running.  ��2-  PdRTiciPDcnoni  Fitness.

High scorers for the senior boys basketball  club were Dave Lamb with 22 points and Ken  Hincks with 16.  One Cougar player was late for the game  because he got caught up in the snow storm.  After the game Cougar coach Gary Gray  said the scoring was very spread out, with  most of the team adding points to the  scoreboard.  "Our team didn't play a great defensive  game but we executed the fast break well and  took a lot of easy .baskets," he said.  Dec. 16 the Cougars beat Howe Sound  Secondary in Squamish 97 to 77. At one point  during the game Elphinstone. had a lead of 30  points.     *,..;,.���  High scorers in that game were Dave  Lamb and Trevor Swan.  Coach Gray said the Howe Sound team  was young and would be much improved by  next year.  About his own team's efforts he said  Elphie was capable of much better play and  that he was looking forward to more competitive games. He also complained about the  quality of the refereeing.  On Friday Gray's team got the competition they were looking for but allowed  Port Coquitlam Secondary to upset them 85 to  .77. -:f|/  ���i. The Cougars|trailed throughout most of  the game by foitr' points.  The Elphinstone senior girls basketball  team didn't fare as well as the boys team  against Howe Sound.  They whomped Elphinstone 23-11.  The Squamish team had the lead for the  whole game. At the half they were ahead 17-2.  High scorers for Elphinstone were Cyndie  Grafe with eight points and Colleen Kurutcz  with three. '  June Wilson, Elphinstone girls coach,  stated the girls have to practice more accurate shooting.  "Our offense is weak and definitely needs  Improving," she said.  The girls team suffered their second loss  of the week when Port Coquitlam topped  them 43 to" 21.

In a report to the Sechelt School Board,  continuing education co-ordinator Karin  Hoemberg said 904 people enrolled in the 62  courses offered.  In her report, Hoemberg said enrolment in  recreational activities increased over the  previous year and said the availability of  Elphinstone gymnasium was a major factor.  "The pressure for gym time is bigger and the  facilities in Gibsons and Sechelt are utilized  as much as possible," she said,  "Recreational programs and courses  designed to give adults new or improved  skills are increasing in demand."  Looking toward the 197.6 Spring program,  Hoemberg ��� said, "A Peninsula-wide campaign for fitness is planned for the Spring in  co-operation with Action B.C. Contact has  been made with Canada Manpower, Special  Program Division, Vancouver, regarding the  possibility of establishing relevant training  programs and basic skill development  courses for disadvantaged adults."  The need for academic and carrier  programmes is increasing and cannot be  satisfied presently because Capilano College  is not prepared to sell courses at cost price,  she said.

They certainly know how to throw a party,  with the Legion Ladies providing the refreshments. Santa Claus arrived with a sackful of  beautiful gifts, a few. nights earlier just to add  io the Christmas party.  Mrs. Lillian Peters, Activity Aide had seen,  that everyone was decked out in their best bib  and tucker. Early in the day Volunteer  Hairdressers set and curled then combed out  the coiffures, the party dresses were hung out  in the air to make sure there were no creases.  In fact the second floor had the feeling of a  girl's college, pretty dresses and excitement,  everyone looking forward to the evening  festivities.  Master of Ceremonies was Harry Capey,  he had the pleasant job of introducing Adam  McBride df Roberts Creek, Adam, a musical  master on the organ playing many popular  songs. He also accompanied a vivacious lady  who I haye long suspected of hiding a great  talent for entertaining. Mrs. Mary Harrowell  sang and entertained royally sharing this  talent with the happy patients. Way to go  Mary, let's hear more from you.  The Hospital Staff, including Mrs. Ellen.  Bragg, Administrator, Mrs. E>ana Kearney,  Nursing Supervisor plus quite a few more.  Some specially on hand to keep their every  watchful eye on the party going patients.  The Mini-bus with driver John Bunyan and  John Lewis saw everyone got there and back  comfortably.  Many relatives joined in the fun, Chris  Smith thought it was such a grand group that  he treated all the patients to Champagne.  Music for dancing was provided for by Wes  Clark, Herb Ebach, Rod Lizee and Harold  Aubin. This was another memory to be talked  over again and again in days to come.  Mrs. Pixie Daly of Davis Bay is delighted  to have her son Sean with his new bride,  Carmen home for Christmas from Honduras.  Sean works m mining, he has been in El  Salvador and San Pedrosula, and will be on  the Peninsula for a month, Carmen finds our  climate very cbld but perhaps the warm  welcome will help her to withstand it.

Staying with daughter Tiny and Earl  Hughes, not far from the beach at Walkiki,  Roy .and Lenore were there just in time to  catch the last of a three day rain storm, the  PEGGY CONNOR 885-9347  heaviest in ages. The moisture was needed,  however, for they Had just had quite a dry  spell, but from then on the weather was  tremendous, sunny and warm. They felt only  a slight tremor from the big earthquake on  the big island.  Roy was much taken with the huge trees,  logging for years this is natural but the  variety of the big trees and the different  shapes is something else again.  There was a specially big surf at Sunset  Beach so they had the thrill of watching the  surfers on the massive waves, a real thrill.  Son-in-law Earl Hughes making a great  name for himself musically, in Hawaii, he left  the day after Nygren's departure, for Nashville where he has been asked to make a  record singing his own compositions, Earl is  moving up fast, wowing people all over.  Another local group mat are just starting  to sing professionally, are the Murphy girls,  Deidre, Sheilagh, Louise and Stephanie, they  have been heard many times at the hospitals  both here and in Vancouver and many other  places.  They are now singing during the dinner  hour at Jolly Roger Inn at Secret Cove, a pre-  Christmas treat for diners at the Inn, and  very well received with their excellent  singing voices.

NEW PLAQUE  In spite of everything, school spirit is alive  and well and living in Elphinstone Secondary.  It took a definite turn for the better on  Monday, Dec. 15, when the school received its  new plaque. At a Christmas assembly in the  gym, Hans Petersen of South Fletcher Road,  Gibsons, officially unveiled his second  Elphinstone plaque. The first one he carved  and donated to the school was lost in the fire  of 73.  The new one is a masterpiece of fine  carving, tooled on a piece of Honduras  mahogany, about 6 feet by 4 feet, and will be  hung in the foyer.  At the ceremony last week, the school  band plajj^d, and Mr. Petersen was introduced ur^a speech by principal Don  Montgome>y. Following the unveiling, the  students showed their appreciation by rising  to their feet and giving their benefactor an  overwhelming ovation.  The main emblems on the plaque are the  school crest and the coat-of-arms of the  Elphinstone family. Surrounding these is a  border designed by Mr. Petersen. In reply to  our questions about some of the signs and  letters, he touched briefly on the subject of  heraldic arms, symbols and lettering ���a  subject he has studied at Art School in his  native Germany, and in books. The mark that  looks like '4w' and is engraved on the shield,  for example, is the ancient mark of the  PageB-6  The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, December 24,1975  -t-Sf&Qf&^t&tt^-aS^Ct!^  LARGE BULLDOZER  FOR HIRE  * gravel pit work"  * land clearing  883-2324  By Margaret Jones 886-9843  Stonemasons and Wood^-carvers Guild, a  brotherhood of craftsmen; the origin of the  symbol goes back into antiquity, Lettering  around the outer edge of the plaque is from  the tombstone of a mediaeval king who was  buried in Westminster Abbey.  Obviously the students appreciate the time  and skill that went into their new school  plaque. It is a work of art they can be proud  of, a symbol of a school spirit that didn't die, in  the fire or the hard times that followed.  BAND CONCERT  High school band concert took place in the  same gym on Monday evening, December 15.  A large audience sat on the new bleachers  and enjoyed the music. Each year the  standard is a little higher, which is understandable: good bands don't grow overnight, and it seems to us that the early years  of coaxing and cultivating band music (at the  Elementary and Secondary level) are  bearing fruit.  Wm.Rayment, a substitute band-master  for Mel Campbell, was conductor and MC.  First piece was 'Carnival for Trumpets', by  the Junior Band, 45 Grade 8 and 9 students.  They have been practicing in two separate  groups, Mr. Rayment said, until the last three  weeks of combined practices. They have the :  markings of a top band, he said. They also  "played Carnival for Trombones,. Skip to My  Lou Cha Cha, Licorice Stick and Christmas  Parade.  Susan Sutherland then played a piano solo  on the school's new Yamaha Baby Grand; she  charmed the audience with her interpretation  of Chopin's Nocturne in E minor. A Grade 10  student, Susan takes piano lessons from Betty  Allan of Roberts Creek.  The Senior Band took over the second half  of the program. The 55 members have been  practising in separate groups ��� soloists and  background ��� until recently, Mr. Rayment  said. Pieces were 'Burnished Brass'  Highlander Suite, Bandology, Triumphant  Festival, Wonderful Rock Machine and  Canadian Sunset.  In the last number, Bugler's Holiday, the  band and the three solo trumpeters (Linda  Laing, Peter Black and Robert Gore) blew up  .several storms of applause.

It has become so com*  ^mercialized, is what we constantly hear; r  what has changed it? Well, Cliristmas has not  changed, it is only people's thinking that has  changed. As so many say, "they have taken  the Christout of Christmas." IJt may be they  uhthirikingly take out the Christ when they  shorten Christmas to Xmas^ Let us accept the *  spirit of Christ and put him back where he  belongs, not substituting an X to mark the  spot.  The star that looked down on the manger  still shines in the hearts of many. Its light has  met the antagonism of dull ears and undisciplined beliefs with Truth and Love. Its  brightness is for all ages, and wise men of  today still follow its guiding light.  When we accept this light into our hearts,  selfishness and greed is replaced with  helpfulness and giving. It is a light of love.  The Wise Men of old, "When they saw the  star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy."  "And when they were come into the house,  they saw the young child with Mary "his  mother, and fell down and worshipped him;  andjvhert they had Opened their treasures,  tney" presented unto him gifts; gold and  frankincense, and myrrh."  Mary Baker Eddy writes in her book  Miscellaneous Writing, "The star that looked  lovingly down on the manger of our Lord,  lends its resplendent light to this hour: the  light of Truth, to cheer, guide and bless man  as he reaches forth for the infant idea of  divine perfection dawning upon human imperfection, that calms man's fears, bears his  burdens, beckons him on to Truth and Love  and the sweet immunity these bring from sin,  sickness, and deatlf."  Let us follow the star, that the spirit of the  Christ will predominate our thinking and we  can then put Christ back into Christmas  From, the pulpit  ���by Pastor Gerry Foster,  Suppose there was a baby born to you and  your family but shortly after its birth it was  adopted by someone else. You never see this  child, never hear it speak nor know anything  about its character. Although the birth of this  child was historically a fact, it certainly  would not be a part of your life. Oh, the odd  time you might mention something about the  event but life would go on without that baby  influencing or affecting you life in any way.  With this in mind we mention the birth of a  baby which took place over 1900 years ago in  a-little town in the Middle East. They called  His name Jesus and this is the season that we  celebrate His birth. The first thing we should  observe is that the Bible says: "Unto you is  born this day in the city of David a Savior,  who is Christ the Lord". 'To you is born' it  says, so you have an interest in this baby who  was born in a stable,, But we ask the question,  Have you brought the baby home? Have you  allowed Him to become a part of you life?  Many have left the Christ-child in the  manger, wrapped ih swaddling cloths. It is  just a cold, historical fact, making no Impact  upon them whatsoever.  And this becomes even more significant  because this One who was born ih Bethlehem  many long years ago is far more than just  another baby. He is your Saviour, King of  Kings, Lord of Lords, yes, even your God.  This was the day God became one of us. As  the Bible says: "HeHimself likewise partook  of the same nature". What condescension!  When Mary and Joseph arrived at the inn  they were told there was no room for them, no  vacancy for the birth of Jesus Christ. What  about you, Is there any room in your heart for  Jesus? Does it matter that Christ was born to  save you from your sins? If you arc going to  celebrate Christmas it might be a good Idea to  invite Him to tho party.

A total of 120 members took  Sechelt sat down to their annual part in the annual dinner which ended  Christmas dinner last week at their hall   with dancing and singing.  ��� Timesphoto  by ROBERT FOXALL  The turkeys were well and truly stuffed  and so were some 120 members of Senior  Citizens' Branch 69 as they sat down on  Thursday to enjoy a Christmas Dinner excellently prepared by Mrs. D. Goeson and her  helpers. :n  After opening the meeting with '0'  Canada', president Emery asked the  members to stand in tribute to the memory of  members Mrs. Cope, E.W. Shaw, Lola Turner  and Bertha Garnet.  With Mayor and Mrs. Harold Nelson as  honored guests, Jack Bushell then proceeded  to administer the Oath of Office to the incoming executive. This having been done, the  meeting then heard a Notice of Motion which  will amend the bylaws to give the executive  slightly increased spending power that the  operation of the hall may run somewhat more  smoothly. Thisimotion will be put at the  regular meeting in January.  It was then to the more important business  of enjoying a very delicious repast with all the  festive goodies, Following the, dinner, winning numbers were drawn in the last of the  series of draws held to assist in the purchase  of our hall. The afghan donated by Reg  Smears was won by Guilie Macleod of Selma  Park and the cushion, made and donated by  Margaret went to Kay Mavln of Sechelt.  Then with Mary Redman at the keys we  participated in much hearty carol singing.  Dave Hayward provided tjre inspiration for  the pinging by giving us such a great lead.  After the tables had been cleared of dishes  and stacked away at the side of tho hall, the  rest of the afternoon was sfrent In dancing,  with Evelyn Bushel on piano, Emery Scott on  accordion and Al Faris on drums.  It was truly a fitting climax to a yoar of  CHRISTIAN SCIENCE  Church services aro hold each Sunday  at 11:15 am. in St. John's United  Church, Davis Bay.

It was the wish of  the gathering that I should say, for all the  members "A Very Merry Christmas and a  Bright and Happy New Year" to all our good  friends and neighbours.  TONIGHT is magic. Cliristmas Eve is  magic. Actually the whole exercise is magic;  but Christmas Eve is its own special magic;  part of, but separate from* the rest of the  magic.  Tonight is Christmas Eve and it's a very  special time. I've always considered it to be a  time to be spent with friends, people you love,  people you enjoy being with.  Tomorrow is a special day as well; but a  different kind of special with its own kind of \  magic, traditionally for me, slightly more  frantic than Christinas Eve. Tonight is a time  for resting, for thinking, for being quiet, for  being .peaceful.  Allow me to tell you about when I  .discovered this Christmas Eve magic. I spent  the early part of growing up in a rambling two  story house in the Fraser Valley. My bedroom  looked West across our yard, across an open  field inhabited by Mr. Smith's cows and a  very few incredibly huge trees and into the  open sky where the sun used to disappear. It  was Christmas Eve and very clear and cold. I  was five.  It was late and a small blob of mercury  passed for a moon set in a background of  silver pinholes for stars. Everyone else was  asleep but J. was awake, bound and determined and to see Santa Claus.  I walked from my bed to the double windows in my room and made myself comfortable ih front of them. There I would stay  until the1 visitor put in an appearance in the  Western sky.  Just before I went to bed, the radio told us  that Santa Claus had been spotted on radar  leaving the North Pole and was on his way.  Ironically, the voice on the radio was Uncle  Ross Mortimer, the man who hosted Kiddies  Carnival and read my name from his Birthday Book over the radio. Every kid knew  Uncle Ross (and we all called him uncle) and  he knew all of us. He must have, he knew  When our birthdays were. Uncle Ross won't  see this Christmas. Happily, the nurses who  were with him at the end last week were some  of us, some of the same kids who used to listen  to Kiddies Carnival and got their names read  put .of the Birthday Book. Remind  what Pogo said the week Walt Kelly died.  "We sure lost a lot this year." "No we  didn't," he was corrected, "We just gave it  back after borrowing it for a while."  IF UNCLE ROSS said Santa Claus was on  his way then he was and I was going to sit  thereuntil he arrived.  I remember what the yard and the fields  by Don Morberg  looked like, frost' twinkling in the faint  moonlight. I remember what it looked like the  following morjiing when* I woke up, still sitting in front of the window, still waiting. ���  THE PRESENTS were all in their proper  place under the appropriate tree; that sneaky  little devil made it in without waking me.  Ypu know, I never did see him that night or  any other night; that's all part of,the magic. -  No matter what I did there was just no way.  But you'know, just for a second, just before I  fell asleep, I thought I saw something.  CHRISTMAS EVE 18 years later, I was  again alone, everyone else in the house was  asleep. I was again sitting, again looking put  the window. A new house this time, and this  time I was facing north out a picture front  window.  It was again late. All the lights were  turned off and my-thoughts were far away as  I surveyed the omnipresent darkness broken  only by the lights of the Christmas tree  multicolored to my right, the colored lights of  the house across the street and the colors  from the lights on the front of our house.  There was the sairie serenity, the safe  peacefulness that I had experienced every  Christmas Eve for years.  A snowflake drifted slowly down. Another  and then another. The first snow of winter,  that year, chose Christmas Eye to arrive. I  can remember very few times when I have  felt as good as I did that night.  That is part of the magic of Christmas  Eve. .  THERE ARE other magics at this time of  year too. One of the most important is the  magic of friendship.  There is nothing as important as friendship. Good friends are to be cultivated,  protected, looked after, loved, honored. If you  do that for them; they will do that for you.  ALSO Merry Christmas, Polly.
