Statements he made to The News indicate  that he is prepared to handle that role.  "I want to tell Bill Bennett and his bunch  right now that we'll be watching him  closely," he said. "We'll be judging his  performance as members of the opposition."  The Social Credit under Bennett carried a  majority to form the new. government, in a  'swing to the right that was,almost a turnabout  from the 1972 NDP victory.  Premier Dave Barrett sustained a heavy  personal blow in the defeat of his govern-  .ment, losing his own seat in the Coquitlam  Iriding by over 200 votes. The premier has  ���-stated he will turn the government over to  Bennett within the week.  Apart from the premier himself, a number  pf ministers in his cabinet also lost to the  ^Socreds in their own  ridings ��� Lorimer,  Liden, Hall, Hartley, Levi and Radford.  Though just 51 of 58 polls had been counted  by press time, the results show Lockstead  carried the riding with 9,237 votes. Eric  Paetkau tallied 6,671 under the Socred ticket,  and Liberal candidate Marion McRae picked  up 1,220 votes.  Lockstead was declared elected by the  computer at 9:05 p.m., but he remained  behind closed doors at NDP campaign  headquarters until almost 10 p.m., when he  joined his wife Leita and a crowd of supporters at the golf clubhouse.  He was obviously pleased with his own reelection, and made some brief comments to  the people, who had been noting provincial  results on television and the Mackenzie tally  via phone calls from campaign headquarters.  Lockstead extended thanks to all those  who worked for his re-election; campaign  volunteers numbered about 500. He especially  thanked campaign managers Don Spragge  and Joanne McNiven, and the coordinator for  Powell River headquarters, Pat Blight.  "It appears that I'm going to be a member  of the opposition," he said, "which will be a  new and unfamiliar role for me ��� not sitting  on the government side. But I want to  promise my constituents that I will work just  as hard for them in the future as in the past ���  even harder."  He was given resounding applause, and  went on to say that he and the party carried  Ocean Falls by an overwhelming majority.  He also mentioned Bella Coola, which was  won by a slight majority "in spite of a number  of problems."  Lockstead said he will work harder for the  party, and citing recent political history in  Saskatchewan, he added "it's my bet that the  people of this province will return the NDP to  government within the thr.ee or four years."  On his own performance in the riding,  Lockstead said he believed the people of  Mackenzie have displayed their confidence in  the government's actions and in his own role  as MLA.  He said his philosophy and principles  remain unchanged, and expects to be effective as a member of the Opposition.  wm  MLA   FOR  ANOTHER  TERM,   Don  Lockstead wears a smile of success after  joining supporters at the golf club. The  75 to 100 people on hand gave him a  warm reception, but the swing to the  right provincially gave them no reason  to celebrate.  ��� Newsphotp  "I know December 25 is just another date  on the calendar to you; but these people have  to pay rent, buy groceries and maybe even a  gift or two."  The speaker was John McNevin of Roberts  Creek and the recipient of the attack was the  Unemployment Insurance Centre in Powell  River which handles Sunshine Coast IUC  claims.  McNevin is the chairman of a committee  to troubleshoot UIC claims for members of  Local 1119, CPU at Port Mellon. He has been  for three years and during* that time has investigated, "a couple of hundred" UIC cases  involving local residents, not all of whom  were CPU members.  The cases he was referring to specifically  were people who had their UIC benefits cut  off for what he considers unjust reasons.  "These people (UIC) have no regard for  people. We havo had a couple of people  disqualified because they moved to the  Sunshlno Coast which UIC claimed was a  'resort area.' Others have been cut off for  showing a preference whero they would like  to work."  McNevin said UIC has a 'catch 22' In which  people cnn be cut off UIC for "limiting their  chances of employment, "Tills Is very  broad," he said, "and might Include not  having n cnr or bus service, not having a baby  Hitter or tho person might say thoy don't want  to work ln Prince Rupert,"  McNevin says ho has a case where a  woman was denied UIC because she refused  to go to another area to work although sho  would liavo had to leave her husband to go.  INSURANCE  "UIC Isn't like welfare. People pny Into It.  It's an Insurance policy nKaln.it bolng  unemployed and people are entitled to lt by  ^law>"wlhOaa.HuldfW!.,.bul-UiQy~aOun-bo-,ouHlly^  (Unqualified and the road after  disqualification etui bo Incredibly  frustrating."  Ilo explained that a letter of  disqualification contained tho phrase,  "... because you are not available for work  within the moaning of tho act," The Soetldn of  the act la quoted. "It Is generaly 23 - ?.,"  McNevin snld, "Or course everyone Is expected to know wlmt 20 -1 Is. H Is not ex  plained. People now know they have been  shafted; but they don't know why. They ask  for an appeal and have to give grounds for  asking for an appeal. They get an officer's  statement as to why they were disqualified  when they fill out the appeal forms. Still no  summary of the section of the act under  which they are disqualified is given. The  batting average on appeals for people who  write in is about 10 per cent. If people go down  to Vancouver, their odds Increase greatly;  like I would guess to about 75 per cent if they  go with counsel, a lawyer, agent or friend to  argue the case.  "Then there is a formal statement, your  statement, the Insuring officer's statement  and the decision of the umpire, which is a  number correlating to some past decision. If  you want to go and look up what that number  means, you're welcome to. The local office  doesn't even havo a copy of the UIC Act. It's  $7.50 to buy one, I was told."  McNevin said he has had to go to Van-  ��� couver to get a copy of tho umpire's decision  In each case.  TWO MONTHS  "If tho claimant Is lucky, tho process can  be over In two months. That's about average.  Also the hearing is always on a week-day in  Vancouver."  The administration is also adding to the  problem.  "People don't even know where to go for  UIC," he said, "Do you send it to North  Vancouver like Manpower or to the big  Robson Street office or to Powell River.  Hopefully Robson Street would send it to  Powell River, but there's still a delay there  good for two to three weeks. They now have  introduced computer systems."  McNevin said the Powell River office,  staff, "were pleasant but of absolutely no  help. The are fairly unknowledgeable  people." Meetings have been set up between  McNevin's committee and the manager in  Powell River.  One case McNevin handled recently  showed there was no reason why the Individual should have been cut off. A check  showed UIC had lost the appropriate forms. It  was suggested that the person como In and fill  out new forms. "Yet they lost the bloody  things," McNevin said, "and their records  ���Sea Page A-2  ,*.   yA  Social  Credit   campaign   organizer  ileaned in the door of the room where Dr.  ; Eric Paetkau was watching election returns  on television. "We may have lost the battle,"  the organizer said, "but we won the war."  Dr. Paetkau had already been declared a  loser by the election return computers of two  'television channels. At 8:03 p.m. Thursday  night, the CBC said that the first result to  come in from the returns put Lockstead  ahead by five votes to Paetkau's three and  Marion McRae's two. The commentator said  Lockstead (might be the, first MLA to be  declared elected. The computer declared  Lockstead elected at 8:45 p.m. Official  recognition came much later.  A post-election party held at the Parthenon in Sechelt and referred to optimistically as a victory party saw Eric and  Bonnie Paetkau put in an appearance at just  after 8 p.m. They left left an hour later to  watch the-poll by poll results come in at Social  Credit headquarters in Sechelt.  There" the results were coining in slowly as  Don Lockstead built up his lead over the  Social Credit and Liberal candidates. It  become obvious that the only thing to cheer  about were the other Social Credit victories.  The Socred campaign office was, in -this  regard, much quieter than the Parthenon  where each Socred victory was met with^a  round of applause and cheers.  While watching the results, Paetkau kept  up a rambling commentary, some of in mock  sadness.  "I've tog to be pleased (with the provincial  results)," he said, "How can I be dismayed?  That's a tough job, going to Victoria. It would  have been a great disruption in my life; I  wasn't looking forward to it. I've got a great  job and I don't mind staying in Sechelt."  He told The Times, "I'm satisfied. It looks  like the best man won. My family will be  pleased; they'll be keeping me home."  Asked if he would consider running in the  next election, Paetkau said. "I would doubt it.  This has been an interesting experience; but I  don't think politics is my bag." Asked if that  could be interpreted that he didn't enjoy the  campaign, he said, "No. I enjoyed it very  much. I think I could have done a good job, if I  7 *l��5Cl*Wi��9��'pT''f �����  had been elected. I think there is much I could  have contributed. I'm basically very pleased  with the way things went."  About his organization, Paetkau said,  "The people have been absolutely fantastic.  The people, the support, just fantastic. There  were people working full time and they just  amazed me. It's very flattering that they  ��� See Page A-2  '< DO0O6&0GMQOIUH-V  "���"MM'  I     -V'.  a*1  U  M  H  /     ,;.

When asked about the provincial results,  Paetkau said, "I think the people watched  Bennett and Barrett and voted for or against  them." I don't think the people paid attention  to what Don (Lockstead) and I said."  At ,that point an organizer said a Vancouver radio station reported Social Credit  was leading in Mackenzie, Paetkau added,  "What year?"  A few minutes j afterward, Paetkau  telephoned MLA Don Lockstead to  congratulate him. Lockstead was at a victory  celebration in Powell River. Afterward  Paetkau said, "He promised me that he  would quit smoking. He congratulated me on  a nice campaign and he said the area had  gained a fine surgeon."  Paetkau went from there to the Social  Credit post-election party where he was given  a hero's welcome. Standing on a chair.he  was smiling and wiped mock tears from his  eyes.  He thanked most of his campaign workers  by name in an impromptu speech.  In Powell River, Mrs. Marion McRae said,  "I think we did very well, considering the  short campaign and the lack of campaign  funds."  .As for the re-election of Lockstead, she  pointed out that he will be assuming a new  role now, as opposition.  The Liberal candidate said that the  campaign was "an experience for me that I  won't forget." She added, "I enjoyed it but  it's something that takes training and I  recognize my lack of training in provincial  politics."  She admitted that she started too late as a  candidate and didn't get a chance for wide  exposure.  Provincially, she felt it would have been  more even. "A lot of people had their minds  made up in advance, either the NDP was in or  it was out."  But she was optimistic for the future of the  Liberal party in Mackenzie riding." The  Liberal party is not dead in this riding," she  said, as she referred to meetings scheduled  by the Mackenzie Liberal Association onr  January 22 and February 14.  MORE ABOUT...  ��Students banned  ��� From Page A-l  students from the Plaza included loitering  and the fact students should be in school  during school hours.  He said the shopping centre should not  have to supply the students with a place to go  in their free time, the school should.  "The school board is aware of the needed  facilities for students and is working on  supplying those facilities," he said.  Blaine Hagedorn, manager, of the, Super-  Valu in the Plaza, said Saturday, some  students have not shown a sense of responsibility at the Plaza and that they are often  making a mess.  He said he was one of the instigators of the  restrictions on students using the Plaza  during school hours.  "I realize it is not necessarily the students'  fault because the school has a lack of  facilities for the students," he said.  Montgomery said Saturday he actually  thought student problems at the Plaza had not  been bad this year, but "I guess some  students were rubbing people the wrong  way."  He said the permission slip system had  been devised to accommodate the Plaza  merchants but that after Christmas he was  going to try to re-negotiate a better deal for at  least the senior students.  During study periods the library fills up  quickly and often there Is not proper places  for the students to go, he said.  Henry Hinz, the proprietor of the Plaza  bakery, said he has no problem with .students  loitering but thinks tho loitering is the reason  other merchants are upset.  ��� V-  ST7"  I .1  -!T  i  V  I  I  -1- I.

TWO PROBLEMS  He said there are two major problems  facing UIC.  "First there is the problem of people not  being informed why they are being  disqualified. UIC won't go out of their way to  help people. The letter should state, "This is  what is wrong and this is what you must do to  get back.' The letter should spell it all out.  McNevin said he will not handle cases of  people who are, "using UIC for a vacation.  These are just ordinary people who answer  questions in the best manner. A guy out to  beat the system already knows all the answers. He usually had no problem. For  example, there are 400 people registered with  manpower but they have only two Job listings.  Anyone of the 400 who say they are not willing  to take one of the two jobs could be cut off UIC  yet there is no possible way all 400 could take  the two jobs. There is a large number of staff  at UIC looking for cheaters. The overpayments are recoverable and people do  make mistakes. When they do UIC comes  down hard on them. The whole process could  bo sped up and if moro mistakes are made,  thoy are recoverable.  UIC paymonts are prorated according to  the past wages received, tho maximum bolng  about $400 a month.  "Tho claimant automatically loses two  weeks; so for the first monUi thoy receive  only half minus any holiday pay they got from  Uio Job. If everything goes smoothly, they can  usunlly expect tho first cheque about flvo  weeks after thoy finish work, If not it may bo  thrco or four months. Thoy can not get UIC If  thoy don't liavo Uio proper forms from tho  employers ond yot I don't know of a case of  UIC prosecuting an employer for holding up  tho forms,  NO HELP,     __ ^ __ _,������.._ ���.,,,.���  "   "TliosS  tttude Is to disqualify nnd not to help, 1  suspect a lot of Uils comos from administration pressure nnd from tho political  aspects of UIC.

For example, why  can't Uio computer spit out n claim lf lt hasn't  boon adjusted within two weeks ond then glvo  It to someoiiQ to find out what tho problem Is?

Even without the very efficient and  modern warning systems, we would have  have known that a time of trouble was approaching. The sky had been clear<and hot all  day, and together with the very heavy  humidity, the air was stifling. Now, as aight  rapidly approached, the air thickened with  yellow haze and the final flashes of sun threw  back brassy bold halos. High in the sky  whisps of cloud caught the final glare to  display swirls of fish hooks and mare's tails  high above the distant mountains of China.  The birds were silent; dogs Went about with  heads lowered. A storm was approaching and  all beings knew it.  Rain began during the night and dawn was  delayed by thick layers of scudding  scurrying clouds. The wind increased hourly  with merciless determination sending the  harbor into a frantic debate of boats and  barges. The picturesque junks with the  traditional 'red sails in the sunset' were now  close hauled and battened, creeping their  careful way into shelter. Boisterous, arrogant  clumps of cloud pounced upon the peaks  surrounding Honk Kong and intermittently  obscured them with rain squalls. Long fingers  of shattered stratus slithered along the valley  ,to the south. A few final jet aircraft bounced  their turbulent way to take off along the rain  swept runway before the airport closed,  'UPON US'  The typhoon was truly upon us by noon,  and for the next six hours winds of such unbelievable force and behavior were delivered  to us, with such determination and insanity,  that one could only presume command had  passed into the hands of the devil. Basic wind  forces of up to 60 mph were continuously  exploited by gusts and blasts pushing  sustained periods of the hurricane to more  than 100 mph. No valley or shelter was truly  protected. The winds curled and twisted, took  sheer vertical climbs only to dive again, until  every hidden tree, boat, and plant was  whipping in frantic distress.  Sheets of rain poured down with the wind,  only to be caught up again, before land, to be  dashed into spray and curled around corners,  over roof tops, and across ledges in a dense  concentration resembling blowing snow.  Every street gutter in every alley and lane  became a roaring torrent as the pouring rain  thrashed its way toward sewer outlets. Main  streets flooded wide with overflow to hub cap  depth as buses came to a halt and private  cars lurched and veered to avoid floating  debris. As if it were a qualified river,  Waterloo Road swept along carrying tree  branches and broken umbrellas. A lonesome  basket, whipped out of some desperate  woman's hand, now floated crazily along,  catching here, swirling there, as it was  buffetted and tossed on the typhoon tempest.  SCREAMING  The trees were screaming. I suppose an  accoustics engineer would carefully explain  the relationship of moving air to the curled  leaf causing sound, but to me the trees were  screaming. I could hear them with my ears,  and with my mind, and with my soul. They  were screaming and gasping and moaning.  Caught now by a gale, now by a blast and next  by an Intense swirl, on and on, over and over  again, until all the trees were crying with  terror and panic. First leaning this way, then  stretching that way, swirling, scratching and  reaching the trees at last joined all together  in one great symphony of insanity. Palm  fronds and bamboo tendrils Joined battle  below to complete the danco. The docile  drooping palms were now arched full over,  with skirts up over their heads, prancing In  panic with no thought of usual modesty. And  the willow also, now reaching, at full arms  length for help, was whipping and lashing ln  desperation. The dance of the insane demon!  Keeping frantic boat to nil this satanlc  symphony wns a broken length of dry bamboo  pole, rattling and banging with , sadistic  dollght.  Along the surfaco, under tho trees, small  plants and vines Joined to play their lessor  part ln the.chaotic choir. All arms, hands,  fingers of the vlncswcro fully extended In to  tho sheets of swirling r��ln, until It could bo  visualized that thoy seemed to bo undor  water, floating Is some turbulent torrential  stream, complete with bubbles and spray.  TREES BURST  Tho climax of tho storm wns reached. As n  signal of pinnacle, the hollow bamboo polo,  banged a durge, and a great mighty ming tree,  gave a gasp of defeat and burst assunder.  Debris was everywhere. Wooden signs,  broken branches, boxes and boards were all  scattered about. Broken television antennas  hung grotesquely over the side of the buUding  while their long thin lead-in wires swung and  danced in the storm. Vertical drafts of  Typhoon wind sucked great gasps of debris  into the sky. Boards, twelve feet long were,  lifted straight up, and then thrown down  again with disgust. Branches and leaves were  airborne as if gravity had gone insane.  Someone's hat now floated on a vacuum of  calm air high above the street as the eye of  the typhoon dropped upon us.  BRIEF CALM  The calm was very brief indeed and only  served as a false hope to the troubled trees  that the end had come. The second onslaught  was soon upon us and except for a change in  the direction of the wind, the entire picture  was re-run as if the projector had been placed  in reverse. But no machine in reverse coul-  repair or replace the broken damage; in  reality the waste and destruction was  multiplied. ,  The poor people, as is always the case,  wefe seriously effected by the typhoon. Their,  huts of tin and paper were terrorized, leaving  hundreds homeless. Flying boards and pieces  of tin roofing caused most of the injuries.  Health and care centres were pre-arranged,  and were soon giving aid to these unfortunate  families.  The people of Hong Kong are well  prepared for typhoons, especially the boat  people, so that���ttamage and destruction,  although always considerable, is held to the  minimum. Typhoon shelters have been  prepared in advance, both for boats and for  those people on land who do not have  adequate housing. These shelters save many  lives and protect much vital property.  Now that the storm is over, the people will  - quickly come out to clean and to mend, the  birds will sing again in new tree branches,  and the fishermen will dare once again to put  to sea in their picturesque junks with red!  sails. They will go about their job of dropping-  nets and fish hooks into the sea, but their eyes  wUl watch the sun for fish hooks in the sky,  and they will tell their children about the day  that the Wind Devil went mad in Hong Kong.  1~    "*s.-��*"    - ,-rv----.     ��  -'l>   -        }S��.

Howe Soundings  Music-lovers turned out in large numbers  to the three performances of the Baroque  Concert and were not disappointed with the  content of the program or the calibre of the  artistes.  Audience at the first concert on Fri., Dec.  5 in Gibsons numbered about 70. They  acknowledged the professionalism of the  artistes with warm applause after each item,  and appreciative comments at the end.  Works on the program included harpsichord selections from Bach's Sinfonia;  Gilliard, by- Cutting, two Galliards by  Dowland, and Pavan (Milan) for guitar;  Telemann's Sonata in A minor, for viola and  guitar; two trios ���Sonata in D Major, by  Handel, for flute, bassoon and guitar; Rossi's  Sinfonia No. 7 for flute, recorder and harpsichord. Handel's Allegro from Concerto  Grossi No. 1 featured two flutes, recorder and  guitar. One of Purcell's most famous works,  The Faerie Queen Suite combined the talents  of five musicians ln an ensemble of two flutes,  recorder, bassoon and harpsichord.

Ask any  child if he likes Christmas. \  People forget their grudges at Christmastime. There were two pensioners on the  Sunshine Coast who had a feud going, so they  were not talking. Neither one knew how it  started. Each one was top proud to make the  first move. This particular Christmas  morning they both went out the back at the  same time to fetch Wood. They had been  listening to Christmas music all morning on  their radios. They both said, 'Merry  Christmas' at the same time.  They shook hands, their quarrel  forgotten, and ended up having coffee  together in front of one of their fireplaces.  This year one friend passed away. The other  has good memories of their friendship.  Christmas seems to bring out the very best in  all of us.  Rosamund Simpkins  by Leslie Yates  While trooping through the supermarket  last week I met an old aquaintance who was  standing at the back of the store trying to  induce shoppers to sample eight different  kinds of chip dip.  After getting the run down on the marvels  of the dill pickle dip, I told her I was in the  process of trying to figure out the number of  tins that move from stores on the Peninsula,  through households, and then on to the dump.  (I had to do something this week to keep my  mind off the election.) What was uvthe tins  didn't matter.  Recalling the article I did ,last week on  Peninsula Recycling, she got the hang of what  I was-up to and proceeded to teli me people  wouldn't go for the re-cycling bit.  "People just don't want to be bothered  cleaning cans, cutting labels and lids off,  squashing them (she stamped her foot on the  floor) and then drive to a special place to get  rid of them."  "You're probably right," I said.  "It is so easy emptying cans and then  sticking them in the garbage. It is what  people are used to doing."  "You know," she said, "people talk about  being so concerned about the environment  and all that and yet they don't seem to want to  do even the smallest thing to help out."  In that last remark, truer words have  never been spoken.  After she finally talked me-into sampling  the dip, I wandered on over to the pet food  department and picked up a couple of cans of  cat food for those eight little hollow legs at  home. I wondered how many cans I chucked  into dumps every year.  , The inherent product of this glut-oriented  society is waste. But the word waste can be  used to mean various things, including refuse  or the dissipation of property or useless expenditure.  For most I think waste means refuse or  garbage. But it would bb more environmentally advantageous to use the  'useless expenditure' definition and let  garbage mean refuse.  Lets face It, a lot of refu.se is Just plain  .smelly garbage, a by-product of any environmentally conscious household. Wa.ste,  however, Is different. It Implies throwing  away something thnt can bo used ovor again  for tho same purposo for something else.  Everyone has at least heard thot society's  rate of consumption lias put man on a  collision course with tho environmental  capabilities of this planet. (Whether thoy  bellovo it Is a different matter.) It Is commonly known ns the outrugoous expenditure  of non-rcncwablo resources. If people do  bollovo It; thoy seem Impotent as Individuals  to Inflict change In the rate of consumption,  especially whon thoro own well-being Is  dependent on It.  f But If tho problem of consumption Is to bo  solved tho answer has to Ho with the Individual. As thochlp girl's remark Inferred, If  there Is to bo a change It will have to bo mndo  by tho consumer ��� the person tlwj economy Is  "'"geared Ho "servo.  Getting back to waste, the mechanism by  which Peninsula (Iwellcrs can do ono small bit  to reduce the rate of consumption through  conservation and display a llttlo en*  vlronmontul awareness has bcon recently  provided by Peninsula Recycling.  It Is simply u matter of separating waste  und garbage and" disposing of ouch ln tho  I  The Peninsula^dwwb  I'lihllhliud W(,.li.oNiluyfi ul ,S,.,.h��lt  ou H.C.'s Sunshlno ConM  by  TIk.

Peninsula Recycling is providing depots at  the community along the coast where tin,  glass and paper can be deposited. They will in  turn sell the waste for reuse. They will not be  making a profit at this. That is why it is  government subsidized.  With the help of the managers at the larger  grocery stores on the Peninsula I did a little  figuring and found out that between one-and-  one-half and two million tin cans leave stores  on the coast every year. For the sake of  argument I'll use the lesser figure.  At an average of two ounces per tin can  that amounts to 187,500 pounds of tin cans.  And that is just on the Peninsula and is bound  to be a low guess. Nevertheless, store  managers have assured me that I am at least  in the right ball park.  Pounds per individual household doesn't  seems like much, but collectively that is a lot  of tin.  For the amount of newsprint wasted every  year, excluding the amount used to wrap fish  and start fires, I found that the Vancouver  Sun and Province sell 13,400 papers per week  on the Peninsula. The average weight of these  papers is approximately one pound.  Using a little higher mathematics it turns  out in the weekly publications there are 1700  pounds of newsprint distributed on the  Peninsula each week. Totalling all the  weights and multiplying by 52 weeks and  dividing by 2000 pounds, it turns out 392 tons  of paper are consumed every year.  Those figures do not Include what is  brought over from Vancouver or any of the  other hundreds of papers and magazines sold  on newsstands.  Doing the same calculation for glass  consumed was Impossible, but I imagine the  total weight would be just as impressive as tin  and paper.  As you can see there is enough waste in  those garbage cans to keep the five employees at Peninsula Recyclers running up  (and down the coast keeping those waste  depots clear. I hope you do. The chance Is  there for one .small change in attitude.  CHANGING THE TOPIC, I had to chuckle  at a bunch of Socred supporters last week.  After tho big Socred rally In Vancouver's  coliseum, my friend nnd I sought relief from  that dismal show of political pomp at a hotol  bar In Burnaby.  Before wo had finished our first drink, a  Socred candidate and his followers wandered  Into tho bar, still high on tho enthusiasm  generated at the Coliseum.

Sir: The following is a copy of a letter sent,  to the Board of School Trustees, District No.  46.  Dear Sirs:  As a parent of a grade seven pupil of  Gibsons Elementary School, I would like to  protest your recent decision to forbid this  class their trip to Mexico. A similar trip,  which was very successful, was made last  year by grade seven students. As this  previous trip was approved by the existing  board, it was a surprise to learn that this year  you have now changed your minds.  At the meetings which were held by the  parents, our first feelings were that the  students should see Canada first; but as this  trip has to be taken during the spring break to  allow a maximum amount of tinie with a  rninimum amount of school days lost, the  weather and the cost were the deciding  factors for the majority of parents and  children voting for the trip south. The cost for  a trip back east is estimated at almost double  the cost for a trip to Mexico. The money  required for this trip is to be raised entirely  o will enforce shooting bylaw?  Editor, The Times;  Sir: Re: Proposed Bylaw 81.  Pi|y whoever has to enforce the shooting  control bylaw should it be accepted.  Questions should be asked now.  How many residents own what number of  guns; who would support this bylaw and why?  How many visitors arrive in car and in boat  legally in possession of hunting firearms who  spend from brief to extended periods along  this coast? This proposal holds tremendous  nuisance value for an undetermined number  of people.  Apart from hunting shots fired, and apart,  from organized range practices by gun.aiul|  game clubs, who knows how many others test*  new guns, zero in and adjust older pieces.  Others keep hand and eye coordinated by  sensible and beneficial target practice.  As to the nut of the matter, who is to  provide the bodies and the bucks to search for  and check out every shotlike noise? Speculate  a little. Occurences could be reported as a  discharge of firearms: rock blasting, stump  blowing, spray containers in a garbage dump  or back yard incinerator. Then too:  fireworks, a backfire or blowout, a compressed air blast simulator, and what about a  disastrous blow up of a batch of brew gone  wrong on a hot summer day?  Now try this one. Are we to become an  unique coastal community of special appeal,  populated by snoops and informers? Well,  don't count on me.  Wm. A.

Also at this  time of year there is a strong possibility of  running into unfavourable weather in  Canada, resulting in a lack of activities such  as swimming, outdoor experiences, etc.  I do not understand Maureen Clayton's  remarks "... I believe students should do  something in their own communities." She  further commented that this trip should not  be for the students' own selfish reasons or  gains, and finally that their energy sjiould be  channeled into "civic responsibility" for the  community. Firstly, what does Mrs. Clayton  ^mean by doing something in ,,the. community ��� is she suggesting that they pick up  garbage in the park? I would rather teach my  children not to throw it!.  Secondly, what is selfish about students  having a vacation and fun, along with their  learning experience? Finally, what is considered to be a twelve year old's civic  responsibility? It is my belief that our  community should have a civic responsibility  to the children. Other communities have not  THE LOSERS invariably have better  comments about an election than the winners  do. Winners, generally speaking, are sort of  overcome and tongue-tied and maudlin. The  losers, on the other hand, are usually ascerbic  and vicious in a humorous, sometimes even  pathetic, way. They, Invariably make better  copy.  There were winners and losers locally on  both sides in last weeks election, The Socreds  rejoiced at electing a government to hide the  bitterness of losing a candidate, while the  NDP were happy about electing a member  locally to hid the disappointment of losing a  government.  At the Social Credit party following tho  election there were a number of off-hand  comments as they rollcked In a Socred landslide. When their candidate entered tho  building tho flrat time ho asked, "Is this  where wc go to voto?"

Yet our community has  traditionally defeated referenda for such  provisions. I feel the same indifference  towards the children of our community is  reflected by Mrs. Clayton's statements.  Possibly Mrs. Clayton and the rest of the  board feel that their children can learn all  they need to know by staying in one small  area. It is my opinion that given the opportunity, which our children have, they  should be allowed to travel as far as they can,  being exposed to different people and  cultures. It is so much easier and longer  lasting to learn by being there, rather than  from reading about it in a book.  A few years ago a field trip to Vancouver  was considered to be a major excursion.  Since then they have tried two and three day  trips in the province. Now we know that  longer trips can be made with no problems.  These children have a chance to go through  three westerns states and into Mexico, they  have.before them the priviledge of visiting  two foreign countries. How many adults still  have not had this opportunity? The board,  however feels it is their prerogative to say  NO!

The MLA's dedication to the riding and his  work for the people here Is legendary. How  being a member of the opposition will affect  his effectiveness remains to be seen and  should prove some Interesting observing for  the next little while.  There'Is talk"that If a re-count in the  i Coquitlam riding falls to see Dave Barrett  take a scat ln the house, ono of the MLA's will  bo asked to step aside and let the leader run ln  a by-election. One of the names montloned  was Lockstead's.  Tho Liberals were also winners although  they camo up with a loser. I hear that people  wcro very impressed with Marlon McRno nnd  sho seems a likely candidate for tho next  provincial election.  Oddly, much of the small talk'at tho Social  Credit party was nbout the Liberal party. A  number of peoplo thoro woro beginning to  realize that thoy were not pro-Soclnl Credit  but. nntl-NDP. Now thnt thnt problem hns  boon taken care of, a fow woro showing thoir  true colours. There was much talk of a swing  to the left ln 72, to the right In '75 and a  centering In '00. Thoro was also talk of  -revitalizing tho��Liberal-party organizations  locally and It got a. lot of unofficial support.  The snmo story came from Conservative  leader Scott Wallace who saw his party ns tho  place whoro the centering should land. Somo  conservatives also enmo out of the woodwork  after the NDP were safely coffined and thoy  wore talking about 1000 as woll.  101)0 Is a long tlmo nw��y; but then 1075 was  along wny away In 1072,  IT WILL BE Interesting to sec If the new  government barnstorms Into Ita pot  legislation tho wny tho NDP government did  when It took power.

No, I didn't  plok a Soared majority but no ono olso did. I  won It because I was least wrong,  Editor, The Times;  Sir: This is an election post mortum.  "No Democratic Party or Freedom ���  that's the choice," said the sign which also  carried the name of Dr. Eric Paetkau.  Really, Dr. Paetkau, your special brand of  relativism sadden my heart; particulary  coming from a member of the medical  profession, whose high ethical standard we  ordinary mortals always had to look upon  through sun glasses.  May I ask: What 'freedom'? The freedom  to exploit your fellow man or the freedom to  share? If we are to have a government at all  then it is hard to imagine anything closer to  'freedom' than the Barrett government's  experiment with watered down, vaguely  pinkish social democracy.  The only way I can read your sign, Dr.  Paetkau, Is that the medical profession has  now become 'big business' and its ethics has  been put under anesthetic ��� purely for  'professional' reasons, of course.  ��� John Pedersen  Sechelt  acts  Editor, The Times;  Sir: The National Museums of Canada  seek to strengthen their collection of military  artifacts and at this time especially wish to  acquire uniforms, weapons, medals, military  books, insignia and photographs concerning  the military history of North America from  1604 to the present.

BY GUY SYMONDS  If there were only one kind of moss that  grew only under one set of conditions life  would be a great deal simpler for the gardener who prides himself on his lawn. The  fact is, however, that there are different  kinds^fmoss and they include species that  prefjClife under wet conditions as well as  those that flourish under dry ���, conditions.  Moreover there are species that like an acid  soil and there are species that prefer an  alkaline growing medium.  Generally speaking however, it may betaken for granted that a poor soil encourages  moss. Or' there may be too much water or too  much shade or a combination of all the  conditions that encourage its growth.  It is however an axiom that moss will not  show up in lawns unless conditions are unfavourable to grass. So the thing to do appears to be to get down to basics and provide'  and encourage.the grass growing medium.  First and foremost is fertility. And here it <  must be emphasized that the single application of fertilizer in one dose is not  enough. The building up of the level of fertility is a continuing process.  So the recommendation is to start with a  complete fertilizer, that is, one that contains  the three essentials, nitrogen, phosphorus  and potash, and apply it in the early spring at  the rate of two or three pounds to 100 square  feet. Incidentally, it won't be too long now  before we all become thoroughly confused  with the directions on container using the  metric system. In the face of this we shall be  referring one day shortly to a new booklet  issued by the department of agriculture that  deals exhaustively with the subject and which  contains all the conversion tables required for  every kind of measurement. At present  however we may tread the familiar road  learned in our youth.  Every month until August sifter the application of the complete fertilizer a  nitrogenous fertilizer should be applied.  There are many of these, both organic and  inorganic. They former include such products  as blood meal while for the latter one needs  sulphate of ammonia, nitrate of ammonia and  similar preparations. Watch out when using  them. Too heavy an application without a  fairly heavy watering immediately after  can result in burned lawn. While this dees not  destroy the grass roots, the foilage is a long  time coming back.  Three other factors affect the growth of  moss. This first is water lying on a poorly  drained site, the second is lack of sunshine or  even light because trees shade the area, and  the third is lack of air.  The remedy for the first is obvious. Proper  drainage is a "must" for a healthy crop of  grass. The second is equally obvious but  sometimes, where one does not want to,  remove trees it can pose a problem. Possibly  some selective pruning is the answer. The  third condition indicates the need for aeration  and that can be done in several ways. You can  take an ordinary digging fork and push it into  the earth every few inches, withdrawing it  each time in such a manner as not to tear up  any roots. Or you can hire or buy an  aerorator, either hand or power driven, or you  can hire someone to do it for you. Done with a  fork it's a pretty backbreaklng, monotonpus  job and actually not such a good way as it  forces a hole by compacting the soil when  what is needed is just what the aerator  does���-remove a small core of earth. It  should be done when the ground is wet.  A word about moss killing. There are  many good preparations on the market and  they will all kill moss, so will mercury  preparations, copper sulphate permanganate of potash and others. So will lime ,if  the trouble lies In too acid a soil. But killing  Is not the answer because the moss will come  back ln response to the conditions that encourage lt.  So if your trouble Is a mossy lawn, get  down to basics and provldo the conditions that  will encourage the grass to grow, which are  the very conditions that are vory  discouraging to moss.

S.I.B. International Industries Ltd., formed by the Sechelt Indian Band under the  provincial companies act has purchased the  M.V. Arctic Harvester for $2.5 million. The  annoucements of the formation of the company and the purchase of the 116 foot vessel  were announced in Sechelt last week.  The company, SIBIL, is wholly owned by  the band and consisted of Clarence Joe Sr. as  chairman of the board, Gilbert Joe president  and directors Chief Calvin Craigen, Ted  Dixon, Stan Joe and Tom Paul.  The purchase of the Arctic Harvester is  the company's initial venture. The Harvester  is presently in dry dock in South Vancouver  where it is being modified. The Harvester is  having a section added in the middle which  will bring the length to 147 feet six inches.  There are additional changes which are  also included in the $2.5 million purchase  price. The purchase is being financed through  B.C. Central Credit Union with toe support of  the B.C. Government.  When she wa& built by Vancouver's  Benson Bros, less than five years ago, the  Arctic Harvester Was hailed as the largest  and most sophisticated combination fishing  nie.itUxl: o  <Jiouaa\fi..  Mr. J.S.Wilson  LONDON ESTATES  LTD.  Socholt  vessel  in  Canada.  She  had' just   about  everything a skipper could want.  She is at drydock at Benson Bros. Star  Shipyard for the major reconstruction. The  transformation will convert her from a  single-deck deepsea seiner to a shelter-deck  stern trawler. Her six insulated fish holds,  with a capacity of 13,500 cubic ft., will be  increased to ten holds for a total of 20,000  cubic ft. One will generate" temperatures  down to -40 degrees F. She will also be more  powerful, because her GM (EMD) 8 - cylinder  engine of 975 h.p. will be replaced by a 1,450  h.p. model. The present engine was the first  of its type tor be fitted in a fishing boat. Its  configuration incorporates a complete accessory rack at the forward end of the engine,  which is a pre-installation package, with all  the water, oil, air and electrical services  connected and assembled by GM.  The purpose of the reconstruction is to  enable the Arctic Harvester to perform  research work for the federal government.  . When she is ready, she will work under  charter by the Department .of the Environment's Fisheries and Marine Service for  six months of each of the following five years.  She'll be working for the Vancouver  laboratory of Department of the Environment's Fisheries Research Board,  which specializes in freezing techniques, and  by the Pacific Biological Station at Departure  Bay to explore the potential of trawling for  groundfish off B.C.'s coast to at least as far as  the edge of the continental shelf. The installation of drag winches on deck will give  her the dual capactly of seiner and trawler.,  The charter contract is worth $3.1 million.  She Is also being outfitted with -additional  electronic equipment while In dry dock. Other  additions which will bring the estimated  value of the vessel to $4.75 million upon  completion will be fish conveyors and  processing equipment In tho shelter deck.  Arctic Harvester's original navigation  equipment is still highly Impressive, and  consists of twin Kelvin Hughes radar sets, a  Wagner Mark HI auto pilot, n Dccca Mark  Xll navigator, Bendix RDF automatic  direction-finder, and Konol Loran.

Company president Gilbert Joe said the  vessel will have a minimum crew of eight.  The captain, engineers and cook are supplied  and Sechelt Indian Band residents will be  trained for all the positions on the crew. He  estimated the band would be entirely crewing  the ship in five years after training on the  vessel. He added that the charter contracts  have already been signed. The Arctic Harvester should be ready in April 1976.  "The ship is designed to go out and stay  out," Joe said, "It carried 17,000 gallons of  fuel. When it is finished it is going to be the  best-equipped vessel on the B.C. Coast."  The Harvester is expected to visit Sechelt  during shakedown runs in April.  '  p,J'\  " .... .,.;'   ".���'..    t  By PEGGY CONNOR  The 1975 game dinner of the Peninsula Rod  and Gun Club was cooked deliriously and  served speedily, the work of the Ladies  Auxiliary to Branch 140, Royal Canadian  Legion. It consisted of roast moose and  venison. Later in the evening there was a  buffet table laid out with mountain goat,  raccoon, salmoi) smoked and baked, bear,  moose, deer and a plate with question marks  causing much guessing as to what it was.  Honored guests at the head table with  president Goerge Flay and wife Mary were.  Allen and Fiona West, Ray and Jo Kraft and  Elmer and Carol Moorman.  Supervisor for the Lower Mainland Fish  and Wildlife Allen West said in a short speech  that he had been coming up for 10 years to the  game dinner. It is a toss up which is the better  'do', Capilano or Sechelt as he enjoys both.  He said people who have made his job  much easier include the absent Pat Mulligan,  local game warden, Ray Kraft, Fisheries  officer, members of the RCMP and members  of the rod and gun clubs. He hopes they will  continue in the same way; "this help is much  appreciated."  It was a first time" visit for Elmer Moorman, president of the Regional B.C. Wildlife  Federation, from Surrey, member of Port  Coquitlam Rod and Gun and director for eight  years of the federation. Elmer thanked the  club for their contribution to the federation  and Bob Janis, one of the directors. "While I  don't always see eye to eye with Al West, I  have great respect for the work he is doing in  the wildlife department," he said.  Albert Lynn custom cutting trophy, presented by Albert, was won this year by Bill  McDermid, who with his father Charlie, had a  successful hunting trip turning in the best  dressed meat to earn this beautifful trophy.  Harry Batchelor missed his first game  banquet ���but not the meal ���Sam  McKenzie, Milt and Vera Lonneberg dashed  over to the hospital witha plate of dinner for  Harry.  Joe Mellis, in charge of proceedings./ had  an excellent orchestra for dancing. Al Denoni  , from Victoria played everything from polkas  to hard rock. Al on the accordion, Bonnie  Sprinkle saxophone, John Faucher bass,  Garry Foster on the drums, playing wonderful music. The Rod and Gun are known for  having a good band and this year kept up  their name.  Volunteer Firemen tended the bar serving  fire water instead of their good work at  putting water on fire, or whatever they fight  fire with these days.  The Rod and Gun wish to thank sincerely  the many donators of prizes some used as  door prizes like the turkey from Sechelt Red  and White won by Mrs. Cay Nelson and lube  .and oil change from Home Service Station  won by Mrs. Rick Peters.  First draw, a fishing trip for six donated  by Bill Dennett of Ketchum Charters Ltd.,  North Vancouver, was really won by Bruce  Arundel, a commercial fisherman who  declined the trip as he gets seasick (?) Bruce  was happy to accept the man's jade ring of  Nova Jeweilry from David Speed. The  charter trip went to Joan Rae.  Al Robinson was the lucky winner of a  floater jacket donated by Uncle Mick.  Parker's Hardware kindly gave two gifts for  prizes, a bar set ornament won by Tor and  Mary Orre. Stedman's donation of a slide  viewer and badminton raquet lucky winners  were Harold and Cay Nelson.  Visiting fireman from North Vancouver  Captain Claude Dumphus, was serenaded  with happy birthday but the number of years  not given.  Ge'ooge Flay moved from vice president to  president on the loss to the club of Chuck  Massey, whose passing was sadly mentioned.  The fifth annual mid-term recital by piano  students of Arlys Peters was held December  7.     ,  To begin, Linda Laing played White  Christmas; Rachel McKinnon, Carol of the  Bells; Barbara Nowoselski; Silver Bells and  Peter McKinnon, Jingle Bells.  The special Christmas feate this year was  the performance of the 'Nutcracker Suite' by  Tschalkowsky. Lorraine Goddard narrated  between the numbers. Tim Montgomery  played the Overture. David Atlee, Dawn  Atlee, Stephen Hamm, Kim Clapham, and  Barbara Jackson interpreted the following  respectively: March, Dance of the Candy  Fairy, Russian Dance, Arabian Dance,  Chinese Danco and Dance of the Reed F.lutes.  Then while Mario Reiche musically set tho  stage, Nancy Montgomery, ballerina, danced  the Waltz of the Flowers.  In the next section Carol Montgomery  played 'Silent Night;' Brian MacKay, 'Wc  Three Kings;* Janet Mackay, 'It Came Upon  a Midnight Clear;' Becky McKinnon, 'Adeste  Fideles;' Glenda Holland, 'What Child Is  This?;' Kelora Schroers, 'Christmas Dreams'  and Tim and Nancy Montgomery played the  duets, 'Toymaker's Dream.'  The concluding set had Audrey Kiene  playing 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town;  Barbara Clapham, 'Christmas Song;'  Heather Wright, 'Winter Wonderland;'  Sandra McQuary, Estrillita (Little Star)' and  Brian Hobson, 'Yuletide Sonatina.'  Following some closing remarks, Gall  Stewart played 'We Wish You a Merry  Christmas' upon which all the students in  chorus gave their parents the same wish.

By MARY TINKLEY  It was a most enthusiastic meeting at the  Welcome Beach Hall on December 7 to  discuss the possibility of forming a volunteer  fire brigade. There were 33 people present,  including Patrick Murphy who called the  meeting and Peter Hoemberg as adviser.  The proposal put before the meeting was  to form a fire department to cover the area  from Bayview to Wood Bay, which would  carry on from the point where the Sechelt  Fire Brigade leaves off.  On motion by .Alex Ellis, a committee was  formed consisting of Pat Murphy, Roy Hill,  Bert Moore, Bob Forrester, Gerry  Harrington, Jack Grognet, George Murray  and Bernie Ackerman.  There was discussion about the financing  of such a venture and one of the suggestions  considered was a levy on taxes by a mill rate.  To offset this, it was pointed ojut that such a  service would mean a substantial decrease in  insurance rates for all home owners in the  y*uiii-ii1 ��wj vuiuui -mi*;.*tv*+m m*HW**i>*riyfv^riwmm. nijiw jui'w,��pn  :-  \.   -.1: -^^N.-.>..y .-���:�� ;/,;.n.-.\HJl. .&'���:*.{��� Pt S}Wf<**-b--9 ft  '���/..  ���w  * '.

Throqgh the 'Food for Thought' articles, I  will keep you informed on new findings in the  field of ifbtrition, present ideas on how to.  prepare certain foods, and give pointers on  what "good nutrition" actually means.  I would like to know what interests you  most, so please sent your ideas, comments,  and questions to me at P.O. Box 1186, Sechelt.  I will be glad to send you a reply if you send  along a stamped, self-addressed envelope.  Christmas is only aweek away. Many of  you are already thinking of the turkey that  you will feed your happy crew. And so, today's column is about The Bird. A good cookbook will tell you how to cook your turkey.  However, what isn't often stressed is that a  turkey can cause food poisoning if improperly  handled.  All poultry carries bacteria called  salmonella. If not enough care is taken, the  bacteria can multiply until there are enough  to cause illness. The following simple  precautions will insure that your turkey is  safe to eat:  FROZEN TURKEY  One of the safest ways to thaw a turkey is  in the refrigerator. This will take about six  hours per pound. Another safe method is to  put the turkey, still wrapped, in cold water  and leave it at room temperature. This will  take about one hour per pound to thaw.  Once a frozen turkey has been thawed, it  1 should be kept in the refrigerator and cooked  within 24 hours. A turkey can be cooked  frozen but the cooking period should be one  and a half times the normal.  FRESH TURKEY  If you buy a fresh turkey, remove the  giblets from the body cavity and store  separately. Wrap the turkey loosely with  waxed paper. Fresh turkey is very perishable  and so it should be cooked..within two or three  toys.  STUFFING  Never stuff your turkey the night before  cooking because the bacteria grows quickly  in the stuffing. Fill the bird loosely immediately before cooking.  COOKING  Never cook a turkey at less than 300  degrees F because this top will allow bacteria  to row. Do not risk food poisoning by cooking  a large bird overnight in a slow oven. It is  worth it to get up a little early on Christmas  day to prepare the turkey properly.  One safe way to cpok your Christmas bird  Is to preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Put  the turkey in and immediately reduce the  heatto 350degrees F. Allow 20 minutes per  pound for an unstuffed bird and 25 minutes  per pound for a stuffed one. When done, the  temperature of the meat thermometer should  read 165 degrees F in the thickest part of the  thigh muscle and in the centre of the stuffing.  (Make sure the thermometer does not touch  the bone.)  LEFTOVERS  A cooked turkey should not be left on the  table or counter for moro than two hours.

Don't worry  about heating up the refrigerator ���the  fridge can handle it. Store the stuffing  separately. The turkey meat will keep three  to four days. The stuffing will keep only a day  or two in the refrigerator. The turkey meat  can be stored up to one month in the freezer.  The stuffing cannot be frozen.  If you make a casserole from the leftover  turkey, plan to keep it only one or two days.  When you reheat the the casserole, make sure  it is bubbling rapidly before you serve it.  We all want a happy, healthy Christmas.  Proper handling of the turkey is one way to  help achieve that goal.  area covered. MacMillan Bloedel would be  prepared to make available to a fire department a siren and some fire fighting equipment which was already available in Halfmoon Bay. %  The committee agreed to investigate fully  the possibility of getting such a service  organized and they will report back to an  open meeting at the Welcome Beach Hall on  February 1st at 2 p.m.  Eighteen of the men present at the  meeting have already offered their services  as volunteer fire fighters and more names are  expected to be added to this list. Among the  committee members and fire fighters-are a  number of men with" invaluable fire fighting  experience, including two retired fire captains and one retired inspector.

This is run entirely by volunteers who  commit themselves to certain days of the  months to work, so at this time of the year  rather than expect these people to turn out in  the holiday season they will remain closed.  The Library recently received money from  the Regional District to purchase some new  books, so come Jan. 8, the shelves should  have a new look. Normally the hours are 10:30  a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursdays and 2 p.m. to 4  p.m. on Saturdays. Newcomers to the area  will find the library around the corner from  Sechelt Shell station on Trail Avenue. Drop in  and have a look around.

Page A-8 The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, December 17,1975  From the pulpit  ���by Pastor Gerry Foster,  Metaphysics is the branch^of philosophy  that deals with the problem of being or  existence. That is, how or why did this  universe come into being? It is a  philosophical question that basically can be  narrowed down to three considerations.  One view states that it all just happened.  First there was nothing, then all of a sudden  something existed. Not very many adhere to  this rather absurd theory but is has been  stated as a possible answer to4he question of  being. A second answer considers that what  now exists did originally come into being,  from something. One phrase which often  arises within this view is 'energy particle'.  The universe including the earth with Its  large variety of plants, animals, and above  all man himself, has its origin in some  'energy particle'. One must admit, however,  that this is not a complete or satisfactory  answer to the question of existence.  For it is clear that an important question  still remains ��� whence came the energy  particle? Briefly stated, and according to this  theory, one Would say the universe had an  impersonal beginning.  Thirdly, there is the answer which  suggests a personal-infinite beginning.  Personal because there is both unity and  diversity in the universe, and personal  because man ha,s personality and morals.  And infinit because there has to be something  before the 'energy particle'.  Finally, as you consider this subject,  remember that the Bible contains the third  answer. It begins with the words 'In the  beginning God' and goes on to tell us what  God created, and most important are the  words "God created man in His own image".  With all of these things in mind it is no  wonder that a very intelligent scholar of  philosophy and religion has said:  "Christianity is not the best answer, it is the  only answer".  WSMM  An alternate education program for high  school dropouts or students who may dropout  was given approval in principle by Sechelt  School Board Thursday, pending further  program clarification and the availability of  funding next year.  The alternate ��� rehabilitation program is  for children in the 14 to 18 year-old age  bracket who are not functioning adequately in  the community either because they have  social or family problems or do not have the  skills for employment or a combination bf  both.  The group which made the proposal' to  school board is an off-shoot of the Inter-  Agency Liaison Committe, which is made up  of various, services and agencies on the.  Peninsula, including probation, mental  health, school representatives, human  resources and public health.  Spokesman for the group making the  proposal, Gordon Berarducci,,social worker  with Human Resources in Sechelt, told the  board the idea for an alternate education  program came about last September as the  way to solve the needs of various children  who were being dealt with by one or more of  the agencies on the Peninsula. He added there  are likely other dropouts in need who are  never heard from.  He said the basic objective of the alternate  education program would be to bring students  to the grade 10 level and possibly change or  redirect the attitude of those attending the  program. '  "Hopefully out of the program the desire  will grown to want to return to the regular  school program and continue ln lt until  graduation. If not that at least the program  may help to clarify vocational goals," ho  said.  Othor objectives of the program, ho sold,  would Include working towards better family  and child relationships nnd possibly having  work ns an option to uso skills learned.  "Theso objectives, becnuso of tho  flexibility, diversity and tho Inovntlvonoss of  tho program should allow tho individual tho  opportunity for a more positive self-Imago for  preparation to return to tho regular school  system or to the work force,"  Berarducci snld their Investigations liad  load them to bellovo tliat 3(1 por cont of tlio 70  dropouts from Rlphlnstono Secondary since  September 1074 would bo In need of such n  program. "Tho other 70 per cent hnvo olt hor  ^rcturncd���tQ.^ElphlnstonQa��or^hnvQ-,.ragul��r,  employment."  John Donley, school superintendent, snld  ho was Impressed with tho depth and sincerity of tho proposal nnd added he thought  school boards should ho reaching out Into the  community. "Wo nro past tho days when  education Just took plnco In tho schools," ho  snld. '  Denley snld tho Depnrtmont of Education  completely endorses alternate education  programs und that thoro nro at lonst 40 of  thorn operating In the province. Ilo said  alternate education trys to deliver cducntlon  In n unique stylo that will mnko tho  trudltlonnl stylo more benrnblo for the  student,  Tho bnslc problom would bo whoro hi  locate tho alternate.program and,how-to  house It, ho snld, "It should bo locatod near  existing hlglwchoolfl to allow on cosy flow of  studonts between Iho rehabilitation program  and the regular school. I could envision two  programs, one at each end of tho Peninsula,'.'  Denloy sold ho know of six students off-  iviml who would benefit by snoh a progrnm.  If tho alternate school was to become n  reality It would bo Jointly funded by tho  dopnrtmont of education, humnn resources  and the school district. There would also be  input from the B.C. Corrections Service and  the department of health.  One big plus for this proposal, said Denley,  is that the group making the proposal already  has many of these agencies inter-reacting.  Trustee Joe Horvath said that although he  believes the program is needed it is only  medicine for a problem that has not been  dealt with at the right time.  "I am convinced there are many problems  in the elementary schools or families. I think  more time should be spent in the earlier  grades seeing that kids will not become a  problem later on. The alternate program is a  partial answer," he said.  Denley agreed with Horvath and said you  could not tell the failures until it is too late  because the criteria is how well adult life is  entered. "The real place for a rehabilitation  program is in grades four and five."  Trustee John MacLeod said he thought  students fell astray because they are  pressured to keep other people's courses.  "I think we are dreaming to think these  kids can come back and get on the regular  course. You say this course is different,  rehabilitative, and I agree with it but I  question whether putting these students back  into the regular stream is the way. Nevertheless, I think we have to reach out to these  children."  "We believe in this proposal," said a social  worker Involved In the proposal preparation,  "The success rate has been proven to be high.  It is needed for kids on probation and for the  kids who keep cropping up at the various  agencies.  Bill Forst, a teacher at Elplilnstone and  ono of the five presenting tho proposal said  problems these students hnvo are largely  social and family related but the kids seem to  have potential.  ' Tho proposed program would accept  approximately 20 students ana would be run  by a teacher, teacher's aid and social worker.  The proposal said Human Resources would  supply the -social worker, and the funds to  cover his or her salary and travelling expenses.  If tho school accepted the proposal ns It  stands, It would bo responsible for tho teacher  and toucher's aid, supplies and facilities for  the program.  Hut there Is a good possibility of changes  In tho program proposal.  ���/Trufltce-olcct Clous Spiekermann, who to  also n principal of n community school In  Vancouvor rnlscd n numbor of polnta not  covered ln tho proposal, He wanted to seo  clarification made on how many dropouts and  potential dropouts nro In tho district, the IQ'fl  of the children nnd tho testa to bo used to  ovnlunto progress mado In tho program.  Spiekermann wns dolegntcd by the bonrd  to work with tho alternate education group to  mnko the necessnry clarifications on tho  proposal for early In tho now yo��r, boforo tho  Ixinrd must request financing from Victoria.  In putting the proposal together, the  committee visited and talked to tho staff of  thrco alternate education programs In  Vancouver and a chlldnaro worker working In  a similar program with the Vnncouvo.

He said he wanted to know what the  total needs of the school are so priorities can  foos fcp  "How often can something good be said  about the taxation forecast?  A change could be in store for Peninsula  taxpayers next year if everything goes well at  the school board. A three mill drop in the mill  rate is predicted.  In his report to school board Thursday,  Roy Mills, board secretary-treasurer said if  the board's provisional budget, which is now  in Victoria for approval, is the same as the  final budget there could be a three mill  decrease in the tax rate if assessment values  remained unchanged. The final budget will  not be known until February.  This year's budget was $3.2 million which  precipitated a 34.7 mill rate. The projected  1976 budget is approximately $3.8 million and  yet will force a tax rate of only 31.9 mills.  Mills said the provisional budget  represents an 18 per cent increase over the  1975 budget, but the component of the budget  the school board and provincial budget share  has gone up by 27.4 per cent for the major  expenditures of the provisional budget.  He said the basis levyfwhich determines  the board's share of the shared programs is  estimated at being the same for 1975.  "Quite obviously the provincial share will  have to increase," he said, "and the local mill  rate should show a decrease."  The provincial share of education seems to  have increased! for two reasons. First, the  number of students per instructional unit for  elementary students has dropped from 25 to  20 and this has increased funding to small  school districts and districts with a large  numher of small schools. Second, the value of  the basic instructional unit appears to have  gone up, according to Mills.  Mills said the provisional budget could be  increased by $250,000 before there would be  an adverse affect to the local mill rate.  be set instead of having to deal with individual needs as they arise.  Trustee-elect Don Douglas said it was his  observations that Elphinstone needs more  money spent on it.  He made this remark after Roy Mills,  board secretary-treasurer told trustees the  school district's $1.35 million capital expenses  program for new construction had been  agreed on by Victoria. The capital expense  program did not include money from  Elphinstone.  Douglas said the school needs lunchroom  facilities, gym facilities, storage shelves and  paint on walls and the school needs these  things now.  Some items mentioned by Douglas were  removed from the building program when it  was determined the cost of the school would  exceed the budget if the items were not  deleted.  Trustee Celia Fisher said there were many  schools in the district in need of upgrading  and that she wanted a special meeting called  to discuss the 1976 budget before the final  version is sent to Victoria in February. The  meeting will be held on January 6 to discuss  funding for school upgrading.  At the moment Elphinstone houses 300  more students than it was designed for. These  300 are expected to enroll at Sechelt Junior  Secondary nexy September.  John Denley, school superintendent, said  it is difficult to ask Elphinstone staff for a  report on the school's needs because it is not  known what improvement will be made when  Sechelt Junior Secondary is finished.  Trustee Joe Horvath said he didn't think  there is any way the board should not be doing  whatever it takes to bring the school up to  standard. On the motion for the staff report  he said he would like the board to include a  committment for funds to be spent on  Elphinstone in the motion. Celia Fisher  agreed but they Vere voted down.  Mills indicated funds could be available  for lunchroom facilities next year.  The lack of facilities for students with free  time at the school has created a problem at  Sunnycrest plaza, which is next door to the  school. Students have been told they cannot  go to the plaza during school hours unless  they have school permission. The controversy  over this is carried in another Times story  this week.  School board has acquired two more  portables for Elphinstone to alleviate some of  the space problems. It is hoped that one of the  portables will take classes out of the lunchroom and allow it to be used for students  with periods free of classes.  Sechelt Junior Secondary school will be  behind construction schedule if concrete has  not been poured and cured by Jan. 5, the date  steel beams will be delivered. Mills said no  concrete has been poured yet because of bad  weather.  Trustees are anxious to see the construction proceed on schedule.  a.-11        *  ���a 1 I  \ ��'  ���w  RCMP CONSTABLE Bob Ogden  received a going away present form the  Grade 1 students of Madeira Park  Elementary School. Constable Ogden,  who is being transferred, received a  going away present from the Grade 1  students of Madeira Park Elementary  School. Constable Ogden, who is being  transferred, received a hand-painted  poster which stated, "Dear Constable  Ogden, We enjoyed your. visit. We  learned a lot from your talk and from  your police car 'show.' Thank you very  much for spending some time with us."  Presentation was made last Thursday.  Alan Thompson, principal of Pender  Harbour Secondary School, has given school  board his notice of -resignation effective June  30,1976.  ' At Thursday's school board meeting, John  Denley, school superintendent, expressed his  appreciation of Thompson's early notice.  He said the position of principal of a small  secondary school is difficult to fill and that  the early notice is a real help to the board in  finding a replacement for him.  Thompson has been principal at Pender  Harbour Secondary for six years and he says  that is quite a long time to be at a small  school.  He feels he is in need of a change and  although he doesn't have anything definite  lined up at the moment he hopes a suitable  position in the city of Victoria may come up.  Jack Pearsall, MP for Coast Chilcotin  announces a grant of $14,159 under the New  Horizons Program to Branch 38, Old Age  Pensioners Association of Gibsons.  "The money will be used to organize  recreative and social activities for senior  citizens Uving in the area. Activities will  consist of whist drives, shuffleboard, cards,  music/ dances, arts and crafts, special  cooking sessions And meal preparation  demonstrations. The group also proposes to  cater to special events for other groups and  individuals in the community," he said.  RCMP constable Bob Ogden received a  very special going away present last week.  The grade one class at Madeira Park  Elementary School presented him with a  poster  they  made  expressing  their  appreciation for the talks he has given to the  class.  In the four years Ogden has been on the  Peninsula he has given Jalks to primary  grades at Madeira Park Elementary on  traffic and bicycle safety and the role of the  policeman in the community.  Ogdeh;,'28, -has' been transferred from'**:  Sechelt detachment to the Hope detachment/  He will be leaving for Hope with his wife and  two children this week.  Before coming to Sechelt he was stationfed  in Powell River and before that Vancouver/"  He has been on the force for seven years.  Ogden will be replaced by Chris Annely  who is expected to arrive next week, from  Vancouver.  Constable Ogden was also honored by the  Cubs, Scouts and Beavers of the Sechelt area  who presented him with a plaque for his work  with them.  The constable was also chief referee at the  Sechelt Arena and spent many hours there  refereeing and working with the hockey  players. '  SS&B  H"g��  t  !  * Trevor W. Neate  * Larry E.

The  ADVERTISING  call us now at:  TiENT  ���aagaaiiB^^  The provincial government and the forest  industry must pull together if the industry is  to remain competitive and keep B.C.  prosperous, Denis Timmis, president of  MacMillan Bloedel, told the Vancouver  hearings of the Pearse Royal Commission on  Forest Resources.  "I wish to focus attention upon a basic  problem which government and industry  must work to solve," said Timmis. "... The  great benefits the province has enjoyed from  its forest resource have come as a result'of  investment and development encouraged by  a spirit of co-operatiion between government  and the forest industry. That spirit of cooperation has been seriously eroded in recent  times."  Timmis said the forest industry faced a  climate of uncertainty unmatched in the  province's history.  "We are in a time of soft markets for our  products, a time of increasing competition  from other parts of the world, a time of high  costs of labour and capital," he said.  "Superimposed upon this, we have in British  Columbia today a sense of confrontation and  distrust between government and the forest  industry.  "The industry is anxious to restore a spirit  of co-operation and mutual trust and I wish to  add that I personally am working towards  that end."  Timmis said the strragth^of the industry  had been built up over the years in spite of the  ups.and downs in earnings from the cyclical  nature of the international marketplace, and  the quality of life in B.C., in terms of  economic and social benefits, had increased  as the forest industry developed.  Past policies, legislation and regulations,  affecting the forest industry had encouraged  the investment of huge sums of money. The  companies which had done so had made these  investments because they had agreements  with the province which assured them of a  supply of raw materials as long as they  fulfilled their part of the bargain.  "MacMillan Bloedel is one of the companies which has made enormous long-term  investments in British Columbia," said  Timmis. "During the last 15 years alone our  capital investment in B.C. operations has  exceeded $715 million. That's a lot of money  and it is indicative of our commitment to  British Columbia where MacMillan Bloedel  had its beginnings and where it remains  deeply rooted."  STAY COMPETITIVE  Stressing the need for the forest industry  to remain competitive, Timmis said competition was influenced by many things, including the costs of labour, raw material  r costs and capital.costs.  Timmis stated: "The greatest single influence, however, is government with its  power to impose taxation, stumpage,  royalties, and other charges; to establish and  change rules and regulations in ways which  affect very directly the costs of raw  materials; with its power to create an atmosphere of uncertainty or confidence, as the  case may be, and to do many other things  which influence availability of capital or  dictate costs."  During the last 10 years, and especially the  last two or three years, Timmis said, stability  in the forest industry had given way to uncertainty and the industry's skilled people  were frustrated by wasteful bureaucratic  controls, conflicting instructions and delays.  "The condition's I've described have been  caused not so much by any major change in  the tenure system thus far, but by administrative actions which have had highly  negative results.  "I think this can be Illustrated by simply  mentioning the undermining of confidence  that agreements will be honoured, inflexible  and costly application of logging guidelines,  Improper cost allowance and discriminatory  stumpage, Increasing moves towards rule by  ministerial discretion, government interference ln wood chip markets and the  Imposition of heavier taxation.  "Wo are at a crossroads in this Industry ln  British Columbia today," .said Timmis, "nnd  I believe tho recommendations of this  Commission will have strong Influence upoh  the attitudes which will determine whether or  not tho rond wo take will load to continued  prosperity,     ' '  "If, Instead of a return to a spirt of cooperation ��� whlcli our Industry certainly  desires ��� wo seo further erosion of confidence and additional Interference which  frustrates tho efforts of tho Industry's people  to operate efficiently, tho consequences will  Ihi terribly painful foiv everyone In British  Columbia." * "*" " * "'"" "  IN A CRISIS  Timmis continued; "I bellovo wo aro In a  crisis today and that much of It has been  created right horo In British Columbia, Thin  latter fact provides us with somo reason for  optimism hIuco. If tho crisis Ib of ow own  making, thon wo In British Columbia havo tho  means of correetlhg it.  ' "I believe thnt to Iks so, nnd tho brief wo  have submitted contains sound recommendations to put the Industry on the right  road, Thoy aro recommendations based upon  experience In tho roal world of cold, harsh  competition."  KoltorntlnR nomo of tho main points of tho  Ml) brief, Timmis suggested I Into waa no  Justification for extended government Intervention In tho operations of tho forest  Industry, nnd ho could seo no need for major  alterations to tho present tenure system.  "Wo need realistic taxation and othor  government .-..charges-, which -permit--op���  imrliuilty to earn a rea.ionablo roturn on  investment and this an opportunity to remain  competitive.  "Wo need recognition by goyornmc    of  tho roal costfi'of obtaining raw matorlaliij a  4  return to practical application of regulations  and controls so that industry can plan and  operate efficiently; and assurances that  governments, in their taxation policies, will  recognize the cyclical nature of the industry's  markets so that earnings of good years can be  employed by the industry, at least in some  measure, to cushion the effects of bad years..  "We desperately need actions to restore  incentive and confidence ��� and particularly  in this regard we need a clear demonstration  of government willingness to live up to  contractual commitments, to accept the  sanctity of contracts, to be open about its  intentions to change the rules and to negotiate  those changes rather than make them  unilaterally."  The president of MacMillan Bloedel told  the commission that in the past tenure  agreements had been viewed.as contracts  which in effect made government and  companies in the industry partners working  towards a common goal ��� the realization of  the benefits of the forest. "Such a partnership, functioning in an atmosphere of cooperation, has brought enormous benefits to  British Columbia and it can continue to do so  if co-operation, confidence and trust are  restored.  "We ask that this commission make  positive recommendations aimed at restoring  confidence and stability and creating a new  atmosphere  of co-operation,  rather than  confrontation, between government and  industry. We will certainly work towards that  end because we know that in that kind of  atmosphere a prosperous forest industry will  have a chance to continue to bring this  province the maximum benefits from the  forest resource."  KEY RECOMMENDATIONS  The MacMillan Bloedel brief, which was  submitted earlier to the commission, contains  more than 80 recommendations. They include:  ��� The Forest Service be provided with  greater funding for nursery programs so that  it can fulfil its obligations to produce enough  planting stock both for itself and industry.  ��� Guidelines and other^regulations should  be introduced by government only after  suitable discussion and negotiation with industry.  ��� Public use of Tree Farm Licence lands  be reviewed and the licencee's authority,  management and cost responsiblities be  clearly defined.  ��� The Forest Act be amended to permit  the Forest Service to trade Crown timber to  encourage the reversion of old temporary  tenures to the Crown.  ��� Royalty rates for old temporary tenures  be fixed at 20 per cent of a moving five-year  average of stumpage prices.  ��� Application of the planning guidelines  for coast logging operations be more flexible.  ��� There be no intrusion by government  into the log market.  ��� The principles of the MB Land Use  Policy be followed by government to reduce  costly demands which produce little benefit.  From the pulpit  ���by Pastor Gerry Foster-  Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy  that deals with the problem of being or  existence. That is, how or why did this  universe come into being? It is a  philosophical question that basically can be  narrowed down to three considerations.  One view states that It all just happened.  First there was nothing, then, all of a .sudden,  something existed. Not vory many adhere to  this rather absurd theory, but It's been stated  as a possible answer to the question of being.  Another answer considers that what now  exists did originally come Into existence from  something. One phrase which often arises  within this view Is 'energy particle'. The  universe Including the earth with Its largo  variety of plants, animals, and above all man  himself, lias Its origin In somo 'energy particle'. Ono must admit, however, that this Is  not a complete or satisfactory answer to tho  question of existence. For it is clear than an  Important question still remains ���- whence  camo the energy particle? Briefly stated and  according to this theory one would say tho  universe had an impersonal beginning,  Thirdly, there Is tho answer which  suggests/  n   personal-Infinite    beginning,  Under its Land Use Policy MB encourages  balanced use of the resource in the public  interest. The company welcomes the public to  MB-managed lands for recreational pursuits.  It recognizes other values in the forest and  makes every effort to preserve and enhance  them in the course of harvesting, restocking  and tending the forest. -  ��� One government agency, the Forest  Service, be reponsible for deciding between  competing environmental demands.  r  ��� Wherever practical new allocations of  forest land be in the form of Tree' Farm  Licenses, a form of tenure under which the  industry has demonstrated high standards of  forest management.  BY GUY -SYMONDS  Canada Agriculture Publication No. 1505  deals with the subject that is most important  at this time of the year to gardeners with  shrubs and trees. That means most of us.  Pruning is generally speaking a winter  operation and it can be quite a mysterious one  to those who are tackling it for the first time.  The reason for its practice is twofold. First to  preserve the health and vigour of a plant and  second to preserve its natural form. Sounds  simple but bad pruning mistakes can mean  not only immediate disappointment but even  over enthusiasm in removing too much wood  in one year may result in the appearance of  nothing but shoot buds and in extreme cases  can reduce a plants effectiveness for years.  To look at the annual thinning of flowering  shrubs first it is necessary to consider two  classes, those which flower in the spring on  last year's wood and those which produce  bloom each year on new wood.  In the first class, shrubs like lilac should  have their blooms picked off as soon as they  start fading so that next year's production  may get the full benefit of all the nutrients  without being drained of them to form fruit.  The second class however can be pruned  quite severely during the winter since there is  no danger of destroying flower buds.  Forget for a moment that this is winter if  you can and bear in mind that, come the good  old summertime, plants can be kept within  bounds and in fact their development directed  by pinching out the shoots that are not wanted  before they get out of the bud stage.  A variation on.this but with the same  general principle is 'heading back.' Instead of  the soft wood buds being pinched out, the old  wood is cut back to allow a bud to take over.-  In the growing of Christmas trees, that is, the  Douglas fir variety where a double head  develops, this is a vital procedure. No one Will  buy a Christmas tree with two leaders. It is  also important where the whorls of branches  are spaced too far apart because everyone  wants a 'bushy' tree. So it is necessary to cut  the main stem back to a satisfactory whorl  and get a new start. This is a bit tricky and  not to be recommended except under some  kind of expert supervision until the right  degree of skill and knowledge is achieved.  When It comes to conifers as a class, these  are treated in accordance with the demands  of the species. Douglas fir can be pruned at  any time of the year. Pines, including the  popular Scotch pine are very particular and -  cutting back old wood can ruin the tree. The  only time these beautiful trees may be cut is  in the period of about six weeks in the early  summer when the new growth is in the succulent stage. The ubiquitous dwarf Juniper  also can be cut at any time of the year care  being taken not to make the operation too  obvious and that lt be made close to a branch  junction.  Whon moving woody deciduous plants lt Is  advisable to do some Judicious pruning to  compensate for the loss of somo of tho root  .system suffered In tho digging. It should  never bo forgotten that l,hp top growth of nny  plnnt or tree Is directly related to tho slzo of  tho root .system.  The object of shearing a hedge is to get a  bettor uniform density throughout. Somo  people llko to enhance the decorative effect  by making a hedgo wider at tho top thon nt  tho bottom, Actually It Is not a very good Idea  as tho heavy top growth cuts off tho light from  tho bottom with tho result that thoro Is (��  gradual deterioration of tho hedgo. Bettor  mako lt a boxllko growth or bettor still mako  Personal becnuso thoro Is both unity and  diversity  In tho  universe,  and  personal   the top narrower tlwin tho bottom, ���  because'"mnn~hoS~pri��ttrinHty nnd mbraltT  And Infinite because there hns to bo  something before tho 'energy particle1.  Finally, an you consider tho subject,  remember that tho Blblo contains tlio third  answor.

Wo don't have to worry about those  till spring so thoy do not como Into a  Docombor talk.  Finally there Is, as always n right and a  wrong way to cut a plant, An nnglcd cut, hut  not too angled or Uio tissues will dry out,  abovo and woll clear of n bud on the outside of1  tho branch Is desired, Too far from tho^ bud  'God created man In Ills own Imugo". and the wound won't heal ��� too close to the  With all thono things In mind It In no  wonder that a vory Intelligent scholar of  philosophy and religion has said;  "Christianity Is not tho best answer, It Is tho  only answer."  bud may cost you Its llfq. With gardening na  with farming thoro Is no .success or failure  only results. For tho enthusiastic novlco It  must bo remembered that pruning encourages and promotes growth of wood.

It.  was his diving save in the final minutes of the  last game which preserved Renegades's 2-1  lead over Gibsons Wanderers and gave the  Renegades the first place cup.  Gibsons Wanderers took the runner-up  trophy.  In the final game, Wanderers took a 1-0  lead and 'looked like they had the game  wrapped up.,Stevie Joe scored for Renegades  to tie the score and a penalty shot late in the  game by Howie Joe fooled the Gibsons goalie  and gave the Renegades a 2-1 lead. Earlier in  the game, the Gibsons goalie stopped another ;  penalty shot.    ' ' ' {  ���The Renegades were"given individual  trophies as well as sharing the big tournament trophy.  Both the first round games were shut outs  as Squamish Chiefts knocked off Musquem 1-  0 at Hackett Park.  At the same time at the reserve field,  Gibsons Wanderers defeated Vancouver  United 3-0.  Game number three saw Sechelt  Renegades take a 1-0 win from the Squamish  Braves. Sliammon Braves knocked off  Sechelt Chiefs 4-3 In a close, tough game. The  winners of the first round went into the second  round and the losers into the consolation  round.  In the second round Gibsons United  defeated Squamish Chiefs 2-1 in the game that  put them Into the finals. In the other half of  the round Sechelt Renegades played and  defeated Sechelt Pegasus who had a bye ln  the first round. Score there was 2-1 as the  young Pegasus team put up a good fight.  This put Sechelt Renegades into a semifinal game with Sliammon Braves.  That game ended in a 3-3 tie in goals and  tho teams were forced Into a penalty kicking  situation Each team was allowed the same  number of penalty kicks and Renegades were  ahead in penalty goals 4-3 when goalie Tony  Paul made a sa\e on one of the penalty shots  giving Renegades the win and a berth in the  finals  Meanw hile Musquem lost 1-0 to Vancouver  United in the consolation round The} met  Sechelt Pegasis for a berth in the final.  Pegasus won that game 2-1.  Sechelt Chiefs meanwhile knocked off  Squamish Braves 1-0 for the other consolation  final spot.  In the consolation final, Chiefs' scoring  ability came across as they scored five goals  to Pegasus' two. Chiefs' ted Dixon received  the trophy for most goals in the tournament,  five, indicating the low scoring games played.  In the final game, Renegades came from  behind to dump Gibsons 2-1 and take the title.  Steve Myles of Gibsons was one of the  more outstanding players of the tournament.  Dan McKay also played good games; for" tKb  Wanderers. Larry Louie was the Sliammon  Braves' outstanding player and Jerome  Julian was a standout for Pegasus.

Cameron  team  from   Powell   Riyer. ���Timesphoto  By LAURIE BEEMAN  Elphinstone senior boy's basketball team  had a double victory last week, tromping first  a team from Powell River and then one from  Burnaby. Both games were played at  Elphinstone.  Thursday the Elphinstone Cougars  whomped Max Cameron firom Powell River  97 to 58. They kept the same form for Friday's  game and beat the Caribou Hill team from  Burnaby 87 to 42.  In Thursday's game Elphinstone took the  lead in the opening minutes and never looked  back. High scorers for the Cougars were  Dave Lamb with 34 points, Dwayne Anderson  with 22 and Pat Gaines with 15.  The Cougars managed 15 fouls during the  game and Max Cameron had 12.  After the game Elphinstone coach Gary  Gray said the Max Cameron had a very young  team, consisting mainly of grade 11 students.  He said he expected the team would be improved by the end of the season with more  practice and experience.  The Elphinstone girls senior basketball  team didn't fare quite as well as the boys  team against Max Cameron.  Max Cameron topped Elphie with a 39 to 14  score.  High scorer for Elphinstone was Barb  Sutherland with six points and for Max  Cameron it was L. Harrison with 21 points.  Elphinstone managed to foul eight times  and Max Cameron fouled nine times.  Elphinstone girls haven't managed to win  a game this season but it is expected an  improvement will be made in their performance with more practise.  RESPIRATORY DISEASES  The B.C.

Squaringly yours  BY MAURICE HEMSTREET  Well, well, well! To start with, a si. .rt  story on the square dance world, or a portion  thereof, with The Country Stars way out front  on Dec. 5th with good, young Harry Robertson at the mike putting forth his everlasting,  lively, progressive and entertaining program  of square dance delight. A definite delight to  caller Harry was the fact that there was  almost five sets present. Talking of presents,  don't forget the Christmas Square Dance  Party, Dec. 10, 1975. Ths will be an 'easy'  level square danfee, I hope, something that I  can handle with lots of allemande lefts. (I am  quite good at that particular figure). I think  this will be the last square dance 'til the New  Year's Square dance at St. Hilda's Hall in  Sechelt. More on this next week.  As this column gets under way, I still don't  know the exact figure or percentage of the  number of people who made their ways to the  polls to vote, but I believe we topped the last  election by a good twenty per cent. This  makes me very happy, you didn't let me  down. To vote is one's precious right.  Friday night's six inch snowfall didn't  bring the same calamity to the roads on the  Peninsula that the snowfall two weeks ago  brought.  Both Sechelt and Gibsons RCMP detachments reported Saturday that there had been  no major accidents Friday night.  Sechelt police said there was a number of  small accidents including cars going into  ditches and some striking trees. Nobody was  injured.  "Possibly people were better prepared  this time or possibly the snow didn't come  down as fast, but it certainly wasn't as bad on  the roads as last time," police said.  Nov. 30 a Powell River woman was killed  on Davis Bay Hill when another car slid into  the car she was driving.  * Put your message into 4,000  homes (15,000 readers) in  these economical spots.

Is Sir Lawrence merely an actor or a Rolls  Royce just a car? Calling Raincoast  Chronicles 'First Five' a book is like referring  to the S.S. France as a boat.  Take a look, take a close look. Buttered j  through those pages is every inch of material  from the first five editions of Raincoast  Chronicles. Those are the same five that  people have lied, cheated and stolen to get a  complete set. Few succeeded.  And now Harbor Publishing, the same  people who put out the Chronicles magazine  all too infrequently, have gathered all that  material and trapped it under a hardcover.  All the same articles, poems, illustrations,  photos and then added ten pages of.new  material in the same tradition.  It's all here; every iota of it. The story of  the Easthopes is here along with all the other  stories from Number Five including Pete  Trower's "Skiffs, Gillnets and Poverty-  Stocks,' 'The Welcome Guests' by Scott  Lawrence, Lester R. Peterson's great  'Fishing Rivers Inlet by Sail and Oar' and all  the other stories from Number Five paraded  like old friends right next door to Number  Four.  Number Four is the grand tour of some of  the lesser known areas of the B.C. Coast, an  education lesson taught by Howie White,  Lawrence, Trower, David Ellis, Patrick Lane  and others.  Number Three was the award winning  logging issue highlighting Trower's logging  poetry, a little from John Kelly, a story by the  late Canon Alan Greene, trucklogging with  Frank and Howard White and other gems. It  was around this time that most people began  to sit up and take notice of Raincoast  Chronicles. This was only number three, so  Number two and Number one shouldn't be too  difficult to find, right? Wrong.  The first two issues of Chronicles are  really what this is all about. Nobody has 'em;  everyone wants 'em. Rather than re-issuing  them; Harbor Publishing decided to do it all  up in one package just in time for Christmas.  A stone with which to kill two birds.  What is so special about Numbers One and  Two? Not much more than what makes  Numbers Three, Four and Five or 'First  Five' special.  Perhaps we, on the Sunshine Coast, are a  little too close to Chronicles to give it a true  assessment. It's us, our history, our story  produced by our people. There's a bit of us in'  every page or, at least a bit of the people we  would like to think we are or the people we  would like to think we descended from.  It gives us a little reassurance that Coast  people are not just former Eastern  Canadians, a migrated number of people who  m&��\i< V  :<H>\   *  ctera  a imi  ../���  (PaP?6P0C  ,..,XlC:U(__^OvA  " l  -**-/��*"����r-��rJ   looks, iifcd    ^  another Slmklfis  V  ir" " \/r Aft'.' ������ 'u'  'v-'HV^X' HiV* A, A  1 L^L^I^A^'ai^i-^-"^   \\xf\  ^ .   .      .

That was us who  carved the beautiful totem poles of the Queen  Charlottes; that was us who built stills and  ran rum to assist a thirsty U.S. population;  that was us who whaled and sealed and  battled the North Pacific to eke out an  existence; that was our spirit which pushed  back the raincoast ever so slightly so we  could gain a toehold of a place to live and  work. That was us and Raincost Chronicles is  our story.  And you call it just a book.  Opening tomorrow night for a four day run  is the newest release from a man considered  by many reviewers to be one of the most  gifted in the business. Woody Allen has  written, directed and starred in 'Love and  Death', exposing yet another side of his  unique comedic talents. A bit of a period  piece, 'Love and Death' is more concerned  with historically relevant costumes, props  and location footage than most of Allen's  previous films, all of which accentuates the  absurdity of the storyline.  After a short holiday season closure,  comedy again lights up the marquee with  Peter Sellers starring in 'The Return of the  Pink Panther'. In this film Sellers re-creates  the incredible Inspector Clouseau, the only  role he has ever repeated. He is right at home  as Clouseau, from his deadpan mayhem to his  athletic awkwardness.  Also returned to Pantherdom are the put-  upon Inspector Dreyius, and Kato, Seller's  manic karate expert houseboy. With these  combined talents and music by Mancini, th��  storyline really doesn't matter. Peter Sellers  is the movie, and Clouseau fans will be  delighted with the authenticity of his  policework. The story revolves around the  theft of the same diamond, and who better to  recover it than the man who recovered it last  time, Inspector Jacques Clouseau.  14 PROJECTS FUNDED  There are currently 14 medical research  projects underway across Canada, funded by  Christmas Seal dollars.

Manpower manager Jack Ross told The  Times that the office is open every two weeks  for two days a week and the workload at the  office is being assessed to determine if the  office should be open more often.  Ross, who was recently appointed  manager of the office said the hours of the  centre are being posted.  "We need the help of the community,  particularly the employers to get the service  established here," he said, "we have a  .number of clients and we need jobs for  them."  Ross said the manpower office here,  although only part time, was not just a  placement office but carried out full Manpower services such as specialized training,  counselling services, subsidized training and  job referrals.  "We deal in shortages," Ross said, "li  there is a demand for welders in Prince  George and we have some here, we can get  them there." Ross said he has access to job  openings in other areas through the North  Vancouver Manpower office. The local office  is tied in with the North Vancouver office  while the Unemployment Insurance Commission is handled through the Powell River  UIC office.  Ross said any decision to increase the size  of the office here would be based on both work  load and budgetary considerations. "It will be  changing as needed," he said.  According to Ross, who came to the  Sunshine Coast after being a supervisor at  Manpower's Howe Street office said he has  between 450 and 500 people registered with  Manpower locally.  The Manpower office will be open  December 17 and 18, December 30 and 31,  January 7 and 8, January 21 and 22, February  4 and 5,�� February 18 and 19, March 3 and 4  and March 17 and 18.  Those dates, he explained, take Manpower  to the end of their fiscal year and it would be  there that any changes would be made.  On Wednesdays the office is open from 1  p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Thursdays from  10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.  f   G3  Y  i  \ *  1      \     ���  /   l <'  R\  ,(  ��f  mm,   r^   m.  ��� h  r  r  i-  r  ./*.   *  ^-\  S* s  rrii  GETTING THE SCENERY READY for and Bert Schoutiens, both grade six  the Christmas Concert at Maderia Park students. Teacher Joe Harrison looks on.  Elementary School are Brad Higgins  Members of the Halfmoon Bay Hospital  Auxiliary viewed with alarm the white world  which greeted them on November 30 and  throughout the day as the snow continued to  fall arid the roads became more and more  treacherous, telephones were busy tinkling as  members debated whether it was any use  going ahe^d with the preparation of ail the  exciting dishes which they had been planning  for theif^Christinas smorgasbord.  However, by Monday morning December  1, the. snowplough had been along the road  and the snow had turned to rain, allowing the  ladies to go ahead with their plans. In the  gaily decorated hall, tables were laden with a  variety of dishes, both-hot and cold and a  most tempting array of desserts which were  particularly popular with the men who never  seem to care about calories. One particular  man even ransacked the kitchen for his  favourite butter tarts which the hostesses had  forgotten to put out.  After dinner, while hopes rose'and fell,  winners were drawn for the Auxiliary's  Christmas raffle. The lucky winner of the  first prize of Christmas Cheer was Thelma  McLean of Greene Court, while Mary Harvey  of Welcome Beach won the-hamper."The  colourful afghan made-by yeraNiohons wps  won by Brock Hansen, a brb^rfof Joan  Mackereth's, and Roma; Clark? of Welcome  Beach won the tablecloth.

Marguerite Paulsen, with an  accent beyond reproach, sang the solo part in  Alouette and Ruth Forrester, accompanying  herself on her guitar, sang a song of her own  composition entitled "Halfmoon .Bay"-  Supporting Dingalings were Sue Beajren,  Sheryl Grognet, Peggy North and :,pjive  Comyn.  It was obviously Alice Half ord's lucky day.  She received a presentation from the  members of the auxiliary in appreciation of  her devoted wqrk in making handicrafts for  the hospital fift shop. Then, when invited to  draw the lucky winner of the door prize, she  was clever enough to draw out her own ticket.  00  ���15  30  45  00  15  30  45  00  15  30  45  00  15  30  45  6  00  15  30  45  7  00  15  30  45  00  15  30  45  10  oo  15  ���30  45  II  00  15  30  45  12  00  15  30  45  WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 17  CHANNEL 2  CHANNEL 4  CHANNEL S  CHANNEL 8  CHANNEL 7  CHANNEL 8      CHANNEL 12  Coronation  Street  Edae Of  Night  Let's Make  ADe��l  One Life  To Live  Another  Worid  Another  Worid  Ironside  Ironside  Edae Of  Night  All In     ,  The Family  Match  Game '75  Cont'd  Cont'd  Celebrity  Dominoes  Match  G^me '75  Tattletales  Tattletales  Toke  Thirty  Celebrity  Cooks  General  Hospital  Happy  Days  Somerset  Somerset  Movie:  "Portrait  Toke  Thirty  Celebrity  Cooks  Tattletales  Tattletales  Oinah  Dinoh  What's The  Good Word  .Another  World  Give And  Take  Dealer's  Choice  Forest  Rangers  Comin' Up  Rosie  Special  Special  Cont'd  Cont'd  Of An  Monster"  Cont'd  Cont'd  The  Flintstones  Comin' Up  Rosie  Dinah  Dinah  Dinah  Dinah  Another  Worid  Brady  Bunch  Nic N'  Pic  Partridge  Family  Maccaroni  Maccaroni  News  News  Cont'd  Cont'd  News  News  Thot  Girl  News  News  News  News  News  News  The  F.B.I.

J  ROLAND HAWES, principal designate  of Sechelt Junior Secondary.  in  as  The principal of the new Sechelt Junior  Secondary School has been hired by school  board.  Roland Hawes, 36, will move onto the  board's payroll Feb. 1, 1976. Presently he is  vice-principal of Maple Ridge High School in  Maple Ridge, B.C., a school of some 1400  students.  Hawes   holds   a   masters   degree  educational administration and worked  principal of a |>chool in the Queen Charlotte  Islands before moving to Maple Ridge.  He is married with two children and will  be residing in Halfmoon Bay.  His first task will be to work out the  student population for the new school so the  hiring of staff can be completed by next  Easter. He said some of this teaching staff  will come from Elphinstone Secondary.  Hawes said the school board will set up a  store front office in Sechelt after Feb. 1 so he  can meet interested members of the public  and show them the plans for the school. He  said the office will be open two or three days a  week.  Sechelt Junior Secondary is expected to be  open by Sept. 1 and to provide facilities for 300  students.  Eight candidates were interviewed by  school board for the principal's position.  THREAT OF EMPHYSEMA  Emphysema kills more than five times as  many men as women every year in Canada,  reports the B.C. Tubertmlosis-Christmas Seal  Society. Christmas Seal funds are used for  medical research into emphysema and other  respiratory diseases.  December meeting for the Sechelt  Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital got off to an  early start on Dec. 11 beginning at 11 a.m.  President Mrs. Betty Monk asked Mrs. Ida  Dawe to read the; Auxiliary prayer. With the  Christmas trimmings around the walls and  tables the prayer seemed to carry more  meaning.   v  Secretary Kay Purdy read the minutes. A  new member Mrs. Hazel Seeton was  welcomed and introduced.  Report from the recent smorgasbord was  read by Mrs. Mable McDermid. Mrs. Ina  Grafe and Mrs. Dorbthy Goeson, convenors,  wished to thank all who aided to make this the  great success it was. Bill Walkey, the 'lady'  who sprang out of the cake, was a real good  sport to don the clothing be did, making a  smashing 'Ms. Sechelt', earning thanks and  gratitude from the Auxiliary. The cake's  design and construction was the work of artist  Kurt Reichel who so willingly comes up with  just the right touch for our needs. Thanks to  all who took part and made the work easier  for all.  Immediately following the end of the  regular meeting, the ladies were called to  order for_the-^nnual meeting.  The first report was Dorothy Carter,  volunteer chairman for Sechelt Auxiliary, her  job to report on our members' inservice  hours. Sixteen volunteers working in the gift  shop did 304 hours service. Extended care  had 15 ladies with 701 hours. The hairdressers, 19 of them, put in 1,070 hours  prettying up the patients and raising morale.  Twelve volunteers freshened up the flowers  at the bedsides for 149 hours. Two library  ladies with-84 hours and miscellaneous services amounted to 80 hours. All in all, Sechelt  Auxiliary hours totalled 2,388 hours willingly  given to give aid and comfort to patients at St.  Mary's Hospital.  The Memorial Fund that receives its  monies from Christmas card greetings in the  papers and donations from the public is  looked after by past-president Ina Grafe. This  fund is earmarked for Extended Care and  Children's Ward. This year they made a gift  of 22 pegboards, one for each extended care  patient to have beside their bed to keep little  notes, gifts or pictures they like to have in  view. Another gift was a blender. This was  put to good use by activity aide Miss Lillian  Peters, making fruitades and other delicious  drinks.  Two bursary girls this year Eleanor  Lonneberg in training at Royal Columbian  Hospital, New Westminster and Diana Peters  at Trinity College for training in  Physiotherapy.  Sunshine chairman Mrs. Ida Dawe sent  out 30 cards of sunshine to ailing members,  and would appreciate it if the committee  could be advised sooner of illness amongst  members. ,^  Thrift shop chairman for Sechelt Mrs.  Eileen Smith said that group had worked 37  Thursdays for 2,192 hours, a great job done  by these ladies.  President Betty Monk's annual report  included all the activities of the group for the  year, two smorgasbords, the main money  makers outside of the thrift shop, money also  coming from donations and memorial fund.  The tea held by the hospital to honor  volunteers with 10 years or more with a  scroll. Sent a delegate to BCHA convention, a  few went down for the Lower Mainland  Regional Meeting.  After the president's report Mrs. Bonnie  Paetkau had the pleasure of surprising Mrs.  Rosa Swan by presenting on behalf of the  auxiliary a life membership to her. Rosa was  the first president of the Sechelt Auxiliary  and the instigator of the smorgasboard which  had been a good money maker as well as an  effective way to keep the Auxilians working  together. There were other fund raisers,  raffles, floats in parade, May Day hot dog and  hamburger sales. The last job which she was  in charge of for many years was the taking of  baby photos in the hospital. Dr. Alan Swan is  the lucky spouse. They have one daughter  Eleanor (Parker) at UBC, two sons, Martin  attending Capilano College and Trevor  high school. Along with the membership  and card a vase with red rosebuds was given.  A deserving award while she still has years <  service to offer  and not  waitinng  until  retirement time.  A guest from Powell River was Mrs. Ruby  Breese, a former rflember and one of the first  personal shoppers at the hospital, then a  constant worker for the Thrift Shop.  Time for nomination of officers with Mrs.  Ida Dawe chairman of the nominating  committe. The slate of officers-rfor 1976:  president Mrs. Betty Monk, vice president  Mrs. Billie Steel, a new position for this  auxiliary, second vice president, was filled by  Miss Chris Ward; secretary Miss Kay Purdy,  treasurer Mrs. Doreen Jenkins and publicity  officer Jean Lear.  Installation was performed by Mrs. Rosa  Swan   in   the   moving   candle   lighting  ��� ceremony.  An excellent casserole luncheon with  colorful jellied salads was set up buffet style  by the catering ladies of St. Hilda's ACW  ending with trifle or fruit salad jelly.  By JOAN RIGBY  Thirty-eight ladies of the Gibsons Hospital  Auxiliary met on Dec. 3 for a Christmas  lunch. We enjoyed turkey casserole, mixed  vegetables, buttered rolls, and a Christmas  dessert TOPS would have frowned upon. We  exchanged small gifts, and found there are  still little but nice gifts available for fifty  cents.  We happily welcomed four new members ��� Mrs. Bobby Johnston, Mrs, Marion  McConnoll, Mrs. Esma Graliam, Mrs. E.  Morris.
