Page A-2  The Peninsula Times  r���TTTnttTf mm Mini nr���","M^*������lM���ti"  The Peninsula^^^  Wednesday, December 15,1976  Don Morberg, Managing Editor  "A free press is the unsleeping guardian of  evejy  other  right  that free  men  prize."  ��� Winston Churchill  Up .and down  A story in last week's Times concerning the future of Lower Gibsons  brought. a great deal of reaction ��� a  little'of it was even positive.  The story outlined the situation the  Lower Gibsons merchants found  themselves in as the result of years of  having their area of the village  deteriorate and how many of them were  jerked into this realization by the  opening of Sunnycrest Mall.  Negative reaction came from merchants in Sunnycrest Mall who were  feeling that the article was an attack on  them and their marketing procedures. It  wasn't, of course, intended to be that.  Negative reaction also came from the  Lower Gibsons merchants who had,  apparently, been hoping that the story  would be a 'shop-in-Lower-Gibsons-it's-  a-great-place. type public relations  story. The story wasn't that either and it  wasn't intended to be. The story, imperfect as it was, was intended to show  the reality of the situation as it exists.  The writer of the story attended the  Gibsons Harbor Merchants Association  meeting last; week and came under  much criticism. When the criticism was  over and a vote was passed to allow the  press to stay, the meeting went on to  discuss most of the items which were  touched upon in the article.  Most of the merchants took the article for what it was intended to do.  We're not running a public relations  department for the mall, for the Lower  Gibsons merchants or for anyone else.  To those merchants who were expecting  such a story, we would like to say that  part of the problem in Lower Gibsons is  that some people down there have failed  to grasp the fact that no one is going to  hand Lower Gibsons anything.  If they want more poeple, more  parking, cleaner streets, a bigger chunk  of the tourist dollar or whatever, they  are going to have to work for it.  The merchants in the mall have  staked a lot of capital in their bid for  their part of the market place and the  Lower Gibsons merchants will have to  do something to attract their part.  Whether that is putting in more money  or what ever is necessary.  The mall merchants we talked with  said they would not like to see the Lower  Gibsons area deteriorate. That area, it  was pointed out, is the gateway to the  whole village and if it is not attractive,  much traffic will, in the case of boat  traffic, decide not to slow down.  Also, we feel, the mall merchants are  looking at the future when their facilities  are not so new and their streets are in  the condition the streets in Lower  Gibsons are now. If Lower Gibsons can't  save itself now, will they be able to when  the time comes.  We don't believe^that the village is  looking at an either-or situation. The two  shopping areas can be complimentary if  the best is made of both situations.  On another matter, the story last  week stated that the Super-Valu in the  new mall and the Shop Easy in Sechelt  were owned by Kelly-Douglas. This, we"  learned, is incorrect.  Both operations are locally-owned  and franchises of Kelly-Douglas. The  Kits Camera's store in the mall is also  locally-owned.  A two part column consisting of those  staples of life, sex and food.  First the sexTor rather sexism. *    *  1976 has be$rf -a bad year for feminists^  Just when it appears women are getting  somewhere in their struggle for equality,  along comes a situation to remind us there is  still an interminable road to travel.  I'm thinking specifically of a story that  appeared earlier this month in which a judge  refused to believe the eye-witness testimony  of a female witness because the woman was  nearly 50 and therefore at the age of  menopause.  To quote the wire copy: "During the trial  the judge asked the woman's age. Told she  was 48 he said that 'there comes a certain  stage in a woman's life, some point around  that age, where the evidence is not too  reliable.' "  And the judge then proceeded to dismiss  the charge against the woman's neighbour, a  man charged with indecent exposure.  After the reasoning behind the dismissal  hit the papers Ontario women's groups urged  the provincial Attorney-General to review the  proceedings, and a few days later Roy Mc-  Murtry did ask for a transcript of the trial.  Then there was the president of the Royal  Bank of Canada who last summer announced  it was impossible to appoint a woman to the  bank's board of directors because nowhere in  the whole of Canada could they find a suitable  person and besides all females were just  housewives anyway.  After the country's housewives demonstrated their economic clout to the Royal  Bank by making mass withdrawals of their  deposits and after some hasty back-tracking  by tho bank's pr people a Montreal woman  was appointed as a director.  The media is often guilty of reinforcing a  stereotyped image of women. Advertising is  the best example, with tho Hai Karate sex-  pots falling over their scented he-men and a  middle class marriage rapidly disintegrating  because of ring around a shirt collar.  Then there was Reuters Item last week  nbout Elizabeth Bagaya, a highly intelligent  womnn who wa.s Uganda's foreign minister  until exiled by Big Daddy Amin,  It seertiH British customs officials were  afraid of a kidnap plot against Bagaya and  detained two Uganda businessmen as they  tried to enter England.  Every time the news story reform! to tho  former politician it was as the "beautiful"  Elizabeth Bagaya or the "shapely" Miss  Bagaya.

From the pulpit  By PASTOR GERRY FOSTER  Last week we talked "about separations  and stated that man because of sin and  -disobedience is separated from God, from  himself and from his fellow man. We concluded by saying that these separations are  'real' and they are 'now'.  But the good news is that something has  been done about these separations. In fact the  message of Christmas, which you are  preparing to celebrate later this month,--tells  as us what has been done. The Bible says that  God through Jesus Christ has reconciled us to  Himself. There was a gap between you and  God and the Son of God came to this earth and  bridged that gap, bringing man and God back  together. We should repeat that sin separates  from God. God is holy and cannot look upon  sin. He loves us even though we are sinners  but hates the sin in us.  However God in His grace and mercy took  the initiative and came to seek and to save us  and to bring us back into fellowship with  Himself. Scripture says that "for our sake He  ' made Him (Jesus) to be sin who knew no sin,  so that in Him we might become the  righteousness of God."  God is saying to you, 'return to me for I  have redeemed you'. My friend, I beseech  you, be reconciled with God. You need His  fellowship; you need His love. Accept His gift  of salvation which cost the death of His Son.  5_3 .       ._   millllteS by Don Morberg  By Kerra Lockhart  External Affairs described as "that hunk  Mitchell Sharp?" Thought not.  "The Person Papers'? have recently been  issued'by the federal Advisory Counciron the  Status of Women. Designed to pinpoint the?  areas where Canadian women still suffer  discrimination they make sad reading a  month after International Women's Year.  Some examples;  ��� The Council finds that current  Canadian laws concerning Marital Property  are in direct conflict with the principles of  equality of men and women. The laws and  practices that kept women in marital bondage still remain.  ��� The future of many women is subject to  the whim or private beliefs of medical  practitioners. Female patients should be able  to expect confidentiality from their doctors  and a doctors responsibility to a female  patient should not be expected to extend to  her spouse.  ��� The Advisory Council finds that  Canada's rape laws are designed to punish  the victim not the rapist. Trial verdicts show  the courts usually take the side of the rapist.  Verdicts reflect the double standard. Verdicts  Indicate that women are suspected of false  accusations.  Let's hope 1977 is a better year for women,  And now to a happier topic. Food.  Two of the Peninsula's best eating places  are located off the beaten track. 'Where to  Dine in Canada' lists the cafe at Irvines  Landing as the best (and only) place to eat  between Vancouver and Powell River. Here  is what they have to say about that unlikely  culinary spot.  If you're lucky enough to be holidaying  along tho Sunshine Coast, bo sure to make tho  detour to the end of the Sechelt Peninsula.  The fishing Is good in Render Harbour and so  is the food at the Irvine's Landing Cafe. For  $3.95 you can have a special fisherman's  breakfast of Juice, three eggs, hashed-brown  potatoes, steak, toast, jam and steamlng-hot  coffee. For lunch you can have a  dcluxcburgor $1.50 on a toasted bun with  cheese, bacon, onion and tomato. Tho dinner  menu features things like fresh fried oysters  $3.20 and fresh-caught local salmon $3.35.  You can make a meal on tho soups alone: tho  vegetable beef lias flvo fresh vegetables  along with generous hunks of beef; tlio clam  chowder Is thick with fresh seafood. Save  some room for the fruit pics too ��� they're so  fresh you can watch them being made ns you  cnt,  Open dally except Wednesday fl a.m. to I)  p.m. Closed on Wednesday. Licensed. No  cards.  I The Tuesday I drove up to Irvines landing  tho cafe was closed so it was back to the  Pender Harbour Hotel and Bonnie's cooking,  Which Is superb.  Homemade soups, thick, creamy, nnd  overflowing with fresh vegetables; hnm-,  burgers with real, crumbly ground meat - no  soy patties horo. But the piece do rcslfitonce  of tho kitchen are the pies. Tho pies aro  heavenly with flakey crusts, fresh fruit  fillings and the servings are big enough to fill  your plate. With a scoop of Ice cream thoy  become a meal In themselves.  Kitting in the lounge overlooking wliut  must be one of the finest views along the const  you can't help but feel 'Where to Eat* has  made a serious omission.  THERE ARE not many things in the world  that I care for. I mean other than friends,  relatives, my work, Ninja, photography,  scuba diving, karate and Hershey cholocate  bars with almonds, there are not many things  in the world that I lose any sleep worrying  about.  But one of those things is popcorn. Popcorn/ If they made ambrosia so it wouldn't  drip, it would taste like popcorn.  Popcorn. I've been known to mug little  kids at the circus for popcorn. I've been  known to sit all the way through a Raquel  Welch movie just for the popcorn. I've  managed to eat popcorn all the way through  The Exorcist without missing a kernel.  If I turn up two and a half hours late for a  meeting with friends, they understand. I was  on my way; but had to go by a movie theatre  and couldn't help but go in for a few bags of  popcorn.  I particularly enjoy going to movies with a  certain lady friend because she always buys a  bag of popcorn; but never touches the stuff. I  eat hers and mine. Thanks, Polly.  I've sat through two *C grade movies in a  row just to eat popcorn. If thfe popcorn was  free, I might even think about seeing a John  Wayne movie.  MY FRIENDS are very sympathetic.  They understand what it's like to be strung  out on popcorn.     i  I've met only one person who eats more  popcorn than I do. That's Laurie, one of the  ladies who work in our advertising department. She eats popcorn for dinner. Honest.  Every night. Am I telling secrets?  Speaking of secrets, don't tell anyone, but  Ray Boothroyd, the man who owns the  Twilight Theatre, told me that he never eats  popcorn because it gives him hiccups. Don't  tell him I told you.  CONTRARY to what this started out like,  this isn't about popcorn. It's about  macadamia nuts.  When some friends of mine came home  from a six month honeymoon and decided to  get married, part of the wedding feast was a  can of macadamia nuts they bought in  Hawaii. They love 'em. I had some and I like  them as well; but not as much as popcorn, of  course, but I do like 'em.  I told you a while ago about the Red  Walrus, a scuba diving budding of mine who  now lives in Seattle since his insurance  company was driven from the land by St.  ICBC some years ago. Anyway, Peter, alias  the Red Walrus, was in Hawaii recently and  brought back two bunches of macadamia nuts  for me.  The first bunch were fine; came in a can  ready to eat and that we did. (Ho also brought  a 40 ounce bottle of Chlvas Regal; but that's a  whole 'nother story.) We ate the first bunch of  macadamia nuts with great relish. Actually  the relish wasn't all that great. I've eaten  better.  When Peter left, he left In his wake the  second bunch of macadamia nuts. This was  his idea of a Joke. You see, tho second bunch  were still ln their shells, picked off a  macadamia tree or bush or whatever.  I CAN just see all those macadamla-nut-  in-the-sholl veterans out there saying, "Ah  ha I" and settling back for a giggle. For tho  unltlnted, macadamia nuts are highly prized  by mother nature. In fact, the old bat places  such value on tho little tilings tliat she makes  sure thoy aro protected from prying fingers.  YOUR AVERAGE peanut can be crushed  l>ctwccn forefinger nnd thumb and the ea tin'  part pops out, Your average walnut can be  broken open by crushing lt along with anothor  walnut In your palm. Your nverge filbert will  yield to a pair of metal nutcrackers. Tho  same goes for most of tho nuts that people  eat.Macadamla nuts are bullet proof.  I mean a macadamia nut placed between  two speeding freight trains colliding heac|-on  would result in dents ln tho front of both trains  nnd an undamaged macadamia nut. This, us  I said, was Peter's idea of a Joke, llko tho tlmo  that he switched Crazy Glue for his mother-  in-law's Poltdent. Million laughs.  NOT BEING thnt slow, I soon realized that  what I was lioldlng In my hand was not your  average nut. It waa little tougher than a  filbert, I learned when I tried to crack It with  my teeth. Not a good Idea. I hit It with tho  ..heel of a shoe, Nlklta Kruschcv style. Bruco  Lee style was ruled out when I hit it with a  breadboard and found I had to small  breadboards.  I SEARCHED through the cupboards and  found what I thought would be an ideal  weapon. It was an abalone hammer, used for  tenderizing abalone or steak. It's a medium-  sized mallet with two faces, one wood and the  other metal.    v  I SMACKED one of the nuts wit the  wooden side. Nothing happened. I smacked it  harder ahd still nothing happened. I smacked  it a third time and it bounced. By this time,  Ninja, being a cat, had its neutered curiosity  piqued and came out into the kitchen to see  what all the noise was about. I bashed the nut,  it ricocheted off the stove and struck said  beast between the eyes, causing him to give  great shrieking and carrying on which  culminated in his disappearing under the  couch where he is to this day, refusing to  come out, even to eat popcorn.  BY THIS TIME, my normally infinite  patience was at an end. I sat said nut on floor  {..and ,bringing*,tbe metal side of the ihammer  down from ceiling height, I struck,said nut  with a velocity that made the Bionic man look  like his batteries were weak. The abalone  hammer hit the floor where the nut had been.  I expected to be coldconked by a flying nut;  but it didn't happen. I picked up the hammer*  and examined it.  Inside     /.-.  "Straight  by Jock Bachop  THERE, between the little metal teeth of  the metal side of the hammer'was something  that looked like little bits of nutshell and a  white paste which I assume was the nut meat  once upon a time. It was very sad.  "Dear Peter:  "Please find enclosed 97 macadamia nuts,  still in shell. Your friendship has given me a  cat with concussion, three dents in the floor,  one macadamia nut in wall panelling and  white paste on an abalone hammer.  "And, Peter, the next time you're in  Hawaii, bring me a pineapple.  "Your      ex-friend,  Have you,ever had the feeling that  someone was doing you know what on you  from a great height? That's the feeling I got  right now. After all the tests I had in hospital  recently it turns out I've got hepatitis.  Fortunately for people I have been in  contact with it is non infectious so you don't  have to wash your hands after reading the  paper. (That is, unless you were scanning it in  the 'reading room') I think the worst thing  about this ailment is there is nothing one can  take for it, it just has to run its course. It  makes you feel like sleeping day and night  and fouls up your digestive system something  horrible. No work allowed of course so I guess  I'll be doing a lot of reading ahd thinking.  Any time you are enjoying a  steak  smothered in mushrooms with a baked potato  and all the trimmings spare a thought for old  Jock sitting whimpering in a corner nursing a ,  bowl of gruel.  Seriously, I'm not complaining. The world  is full of people a lot worse off than I am.

My family in Vancouver, bless them, have  sent my nephew up with a car to take me  down for some tender loving care. They don't  like the idea of me being alone while I am  sick.

NOW THAT THE medical part of the  column is complete I'll tell you a joke, just for  a change of pace.  Seems there was this fellow who had a  glass eye, Well, one night he really got loaded  on booze and during the evening decided he  was hungry and ordered a plate of stew-  While wolfing down the stew his glass eye fell  into it and before he realized it he'd  swallowed the damn thing.  He waited a few days figuring it would  naturally show up in the normal way but  when a week had passed without a sign of it he  figured he'd better see a doctor. Off he goes to  the doctor and somewhat hesitantly ex-*  .. plained, his predicament.  - "Notta^orry", said the doctor, "just strip  - down and touch your toes and I'll take a took  at the situation."  So there's the guy bent down with the  doctor peering closely looking for the eye.  Finally the doctor said he couldn't see a damn  thing and the guy said, "that's pretty funny I  can see you quite clearly".  (Ever get the feeling you've gone too  far.)?

Christmas is  less than two weeks away and- parties are a  favourite way to bring in the holidays.  Alcohol plays a significant role in spreading  the cheer but it is also the villain in the  Christmas story.  It is a f actthat fifty per cent of all fatal car  accidents involve drinkers who have been  drinking. Fifty per cent! 'Tis the season to be  merry. But how happy would your holiday be  if you caused a Car accident and killed a  friend - a stranger - someone's mummy or  daddy - because you drove home after an  evening of 'social*- drinking? It's not a very  nice thought toft" it's better to consider the  consequences now than to wish you had done  so after a needless tragedy had occurred. It  has been said many times ��� if you drink,  don't drive. If you drink, make sure there is  someone sobei\f$ drive you home. If there  isn't call a taxi or don't go home until the next  day when your head is clear. Anyone who  drinks should feel strongly his responsibility  not to let it affect other people.  What do you know about this drink called  alcohol? Beer, wine and hard liquor all  contain one main ingredient ��� ethyl alcohol.  Alcohol is absorbed very quickly from the  stomach into the bloodstream. It exerts its  effect much more rapidly on an empty  stomach as many people can attest. A drink  that is very strong, very cold, contains a lot of  sugar, or is taken with foods high in protein  and fat, takes longest to get into the blood.  That is why rum taken in the form of an egg  nog does not have such an immediate effect  as a straight rum drink. But this is not to say  that strong, cold or sweet alcohol accompanied with food will not have any affect.  As soon as it gets out of the stomach and into  the intestine, it is rapidly and quickly absorbed. Because everyone's stomach empties  at a different rate, each individual will vary  in the length of time it takes before his drink  exerts its influence.  When alcohol gets into the bloodstream, it  travels to the nervous system where it affects  brain activity. Initially it excites, then it  hynotises, and finally it blunts the senses. It  provides an escape from reality. According to  one medical writer: "Alcohol exerts its  hypnotic effect by quieting apprehension, by  r exercising a physiologic change, by inhibiting  sorrow and all the restraining influences of  judgement so the partaker forgets the burdens of the world, his own unimportance and  the illimitable stretch of time." "The more  liquor consumed at one time, the more  discrimination, memory, concentration and  insight fade away. Confidence abounds, The  mood undulates...and the world looks rosy."  So of course a person who has been drinking  has great confidence in his ability to drive  ^Jhome safely, but his coordination and con-  !j4je^tot*i��jMBei*��5^^ saf^-  driving) 'are lacking'.*    *  Ninety per cent of all alcohol that is  consumed goes from the blood to the liver.  Very little passes out through the lungs or  kidneys. Nevertheless, the amount that is  breathed out of the lungs is directly related to  the concentration in the blood. This is why the  breathalyzer test is such a good indication of  the amount of alcohol in the blood.  When alcohol reaches the liver it is  oxidized or 'burned up'. When this is done, the  effect of the alcohol on the body is extinguished. It takes the liver of the average  man from 5 to 6 hours to fully burn the alcohol  in 4 oz. of whiskey or 2 and a half pints of beer.  The liver cannot normally work any faster.  Consequently, 8 oz. of whiskey" takes about 10  hours to work its way out of the system. The  fellow who takes his drunken buddy outside to  walk him around or offers a cup of black  coffee to "sober him up" is not really being  helpful. Exercise will not speed up the rate by  which alcohol is burned by the liyer. Neither  will the caffeine in coffee. The speed by which  the liver processes alcohol is constant in  almost everyone except the alcoholic. In him,  the liver oxidizes alcohol faster because  prolonged excess intake leads to the  development of an additional system for  removing the booze. Unfortunately other  Important substunces such as steroid hormones are also removed by this extra system,  So it is not a benefit.  The department of health and welfare  warns that three glasses of wine, 3 pints of  beer, or three drinks of hard liquor a day can  placo you in the danger zone for possible  alcoholism. The French have an expression  which, when trnaslntcd, says "never more  than a litre (about 4 cups) of wine a day."  This much wine contains just about all the  alcohol a man's liver can take care of in a  day. More than 4 cups overburdens ttie  liver.After only a few weeks of 4 drinks a"  night, the liver becomes damaged. It used to  be thought that liver problems caused by too<  much alcohol were actually due to the accompanying lack of adequate nutrition.  Recent studies show that alcohol itself is the  direct cause of alcoholic liver disease. You  can't protect yourself against alcoholic  damage by eating well ��� what counts is the  total amount you drink. To save your liver  drink less.  Alcohol increases the body's need for B  vitamins. It also increases the urinary loss of  amino acids (protein), magnesium,  potassium, and zinc. There is some  speculation that heavy drinking may increase  a person's susceptibility to cancer. It is  possible that alcohol may increase the cancer  causing effect of smoking. Alcohol may  damage the digestive tract making it more  vulnerable to other cancer producing compounds. Some researchers believe that  alcohol itself may be a cancer producing  agent or that alcohol may become contaminated with cancer producing elements  during or after production.  And don't forget the high caloric value of  alcohol. It supplies more calories per ounce  than either protein or carbohydrate. 8 oz beer  -150 cals. 3 oz. martini -140 cals. 3 oz. wine -  130 cals. 3 oz. whiskey - 240 cals. Any calories  above what you need will put on fat. This is  true of alcohol calories as well as protein,  carbohydrate or fat calories. Two drinks a  night is not enough to harm your liver but it  adds up to an extra 300 calories. After a  month, such a habit will put on two extra  pounds. After a year of two drinks a night of  unneeded calories, a body will gain 25 pounds.  All these calories supply very little  nutrition. It is a fallacy that beer contains a  great deal of food value. One ounce of bread  contains more nutrients, including vitamins,  than a whole bottle of beer.  A tiny nip of sherry will stimulate the  appetite but a couple of good belts will turn it  off. Alcohol calories will fill you up and take  the place of more nutritious food. So too much  alcohol will put you in a poorly nourished,  overweight, unhealthy state.  When you come right down to it, there is  not much good that can be said for alcohol. If  you use it���use it sensibly. This holiday look  after yourself and others. If you drink, keep it  in moderation - for your own sake. If you  drink, don't drive ��� for the sake of others.

BEAUTIFY YOUR PET  Every so often we find it necessary to give  our pets a bath to make them more appealing  to the eye and the nose. Since the holiday  season is approaching, this is a good time to  get our pets sparkling clean so when company  arrives the animals look like part of the  household instead of part of the barnyard.  A dog or cat should not be bathed too  frequently as it can dry out the natural oils in  the hair and cause flaky skin. Once or twice a  month is more than adequate for the average i  ' pet unless ttiey have an accident or decide to  roll in something unpleasant. If your dog  comes home smelling like a cow pasture don't  get too angry no matter how disgusting it may  appear. He is only following an old instinct  which dates back to his hunting days. Wild  dogs would do this while pursuing their game  in order to,disguise their scent!  If you have a small dog or cat, then use the  kitchen sink to bath him. A larger dog is  easier in the bathtub with a long spray hose to  rinse with ��� it is very frustrating and time  consuming trying to use a small cup or bucket  to rinse a large dog, especially if he is long  haired. Don't fill the bathtub or sink and dunk  your animal, as this can cause him to panic in  fear that you are drowning him.  If it is the first bath for your dog or cat,  then have someone help to hold him. Have  lots of old towels on the floor and wear old  clothes as you are bound to get wet. I once had  a friend who would take his Afghan in the  shower with him! Make sure y6u keep  something around the dog's neck so you can  control him from jumping out of the tub or  sink. Turn the water on slowly so as not to  , startle the animal and be sure the water is  lukewarm���not hot! Always start at the back  end and work slowly towards the front. A dog  will usually start to shake once you wet his  ears, so leave the head 'til last. Work in the  i shampoo one section of the body at a time,  by Jennifer Thompson  then turn him around. Rinse quickly, as the  animal grows very impatient towards the  end, but make sure you get all the shampoo  out. The hair should be "squeaky clean".  When rinsing the head, hold the muzzle up-'  wards and let the water run back down  towards his neck. Never spray the water  directly into the eyes or ears.  Be patient and reassure your pet by  speaking in a soothing tone while he is in the  tub. But if he acts up and tries to jump out.  then speak loudly and firmly, and gush him  back in the tub*. It is"better to Keep your pet a''  little on the scared side rather than letting  him take advantage of you by bouncing  around the tub. Don't let him put his paws on  the edge as this will give him leverage to  jump and before you know it you will be ,  chasing a soapy dog through your home. A  cat should be held very firmly ��� through  experience I have found it best to push down  on the shoulders so he can't move at all. Keep  your hands behind his head as much as  possible so he cannot latch onto your arms  with his front claws. *  When all the rinsing is done, squeeze the  excess water from the hair and throw a towel  over the animal. Allow him to shake out the  water by himself and then rub him down with  the towels. If your pet won't stand for a hair  dryer, be sure to keep him in the house or a  warm place overnight since the weather is too  cold at this time of year for going out after a  bath. .'���������".���  The type of shampoo is important ������  certain commercial flea shampoos can be a  bit harsh if your pet has sensitive skin. Use a  mild shampoo, like baby shampoo or the type  you can get from the veterinarian.  If you find that bathing your pet is too  much of a traumatic experience, then send  him off to the grooming parlour. After a few  trips, he will probably be used to the routine,  so you can do it yourself.  Thank you to all my cuH.on.ern.

Christmas. They also  plan on putting up lights and Christmas  trees. Children' will be able to talk to  Santa Claus as he tours area stores.  ���Timesphoto  By MARYANN WEST   ,  Tonight, December 15 the Pearson Tree of  Light will again shine out over the water near  the northern end of Pender Island as it will  each night until the end of the year. A  .Christmas tree, a-dazzle with many hundred  coloured lights reaching up to a spire of white  lights in its topmost branches. This Christmas tradition not only salutes thefravellers  to and from Vancouver Island as they pass in  ferried comfort but also embodies the true  spirit of the season, the joy in giving. Each  light represents a donation which CARE of  Canada will translate into nearly a million  meals for hungry children in third world  countries.  Thereby hangs a tale of course ��� one  which loses nothing of its inspiration in the  . retelling.  In 1960, the time a lot of us were becoming  concerned about the commercialization of  Christmas and neighbours here got together  to support the hospital in lieu of sending'  cards, George and Edith Pearson of North  Pender Island decided, for the same reason,  to support CARE's crusade to provide a daily  meal for 20 million.people around the world  who live on the verge of starvation. A number  of their friends joined with them and instead  :���*.* of presents under their tree that year a  *��� cheque for^l02j50;went-'to<3ARE'." -*�����������*-�������  It seemed, and iri fact it was,, a very worthwhile amount and the Pearsons were yery  happy. Just the same this sort of giving can  be impersonal and George Pearson felt a  need for some visible expression of his friends  and neighbour contributions, so he put lights  on a small outdoor tree, overlooking the  water where it could be seen by all who  passed by, one light for each person who had  contributed to that first cheque.  Who was it who said there is no stopping an  idea whose time has come? It certainly has  . proven true for the Pearsons. That modest  little tree with the sprinkle of lights 16 years  ago has now grown into a forest giant ablaze  with perhaps a thousand lights this year.  A light shining in the darkness strikes a  chord in all of us, inherited from mankind's  primeval fears and emerging consciousness,  no doubt. That special feel of Christmas for,  West Coast people is not sleigh bells, but  lights sparkling across the dark water, expressed beautifully by Hubert Evans.  "Alas! No snow, that childhood symbol of the  Season.  But now my spirit lifts  For there, beyond the reef, I see  A ship with mast-head Christmas tree."  The sight of, and even the thought of, that  little Christmas tree, its lights dancing out  across the waters between tho Gulf Islands  with a message of life and sustenance for  starving children caught the imagination and  as more and more people heard of the  Pearson's tree -^ the donations grew year by  year.  I heard about It several years ago from  Edgar Dunning who each Sunday morning  delights CBC listeners with interesting items  he has gleaned from the weekly newspapers  around the province. In such ways the story of  the CARE tree spread far and wide. By 1974  donations totalling $7,400 were received from  560 individual donors and the Pearsons, now  both in their eighties felt they had to seek help  with the administration.  Their Christmas - project now lasted  several months, and although keeping in  touch with all these new friends, was a continuing joy, sending out reminders, temporary receipts and often a personal note to  an ever growing circle was presenting a  problem just in keeping track. So the Pender  Island Lions Club came to the rescue, taking  ���over most of the secretarial work, but both  George and Edith continue an active part in  their project, especially at this time of year  watching for letters from unseen friends  which come in from all over B.C. and as far  away as California and New Brunswick.  Earlier this year the dedication and  commitment of George and Edith Pearson  was honored by CARE with an Nutrition  Centre in Costa Rica named for them.  Last year they had to find room for 700  lights on the tree, representing over $8,000,  this year they hope to reach the $10,000 mark.

Hospital Auxiliary's  Caribbean Carnival  Welcome Beach Hall, though it is always a  pleasant and comfortable place to visit, had  never been more welcoming than it was on  November 6 for the Caribbean Carnival  organized by the Halfmoon Bay Hospital  Auxiliary. As guests came in from the drizzling winter night, tine door of the hall opened  on to another world, twinkling lights, gay with  tropical flowers and with coconut palms  swaying in the breeze. Everywhere was  colour ��� from the red and white table covers  to the brightly hued costumes of the guests as  they sampled the PinaColada to soft  Hawaiian music.  Guests helped themselves to food from  the long tables laden with exotic dishes.  There were Guadaloupe meat balls, Port au  Prince Chili, fish dishes from Dominica and  luscious desserts laced with the juice of the  sugar cane. When all had eaten their fill,  there was a stir of excitement in the hall as  members of the Auxiliary prepared for the  drawing of the prize winners in the Christmas  raffle. The lucky winner of the lovely floral  painting by May Parsons was Barbara Dixon  of Sechelt and the Christmas Cheer was won  by Ernie Greenwood of Surrey. Ted Fowle of  Sechelt won the macrame bag made by  Marguerite Poulsen and the doll donated by  Mrs. Betty Churchill of Toronto was won by  Lydia Hall of Sechelt. Only two of the prizes  went to Halfmoon Bay residents, the hamper  to the lucky gal, Ev. Shannon, and the table  centrepiece to Geri Smith. Then that faithful  Mens' Auxiliary to the Ladies' Auxiliary got  busy and whisked away the tables, leaving  the stage clear for the sparkling song and  dance routine by five dusky maidens in  picturesque Caribbean -costumes.-Their  programme started off with an original song  "Come to the Carnival at Halfmoon Bay"  written by their gifted leader, Ruth  Forrester, Ronnie Dunn did a spirited impersonation of Carmen Miranda singing "Ai  Ai". Supported by Eileen Hansen and  Marguerite Poulsen, Geri Smith led the  singing of "Matilda" and a Christmas Carol,  South Sea Island style.  A jewelery box made by Guy Clear was  presented to Glenys Radcliffe who was  moving to Coquitlam and on behalf of the  members, President Olive Comyn expressed  the regret of the members at losing such a  valuable member.  Then the guests danced to the haunting  music of the South Sea Islands, their  costumes making a kaleidoscope of colour  against the swaying palms. Had there been a  prize for the most authentic costume, it would  undoubtedly have been won by Joan  Mackereth who wore a traditional  Guatemalan costume which she brought  home from Guatemala last year when she  and husband Allan were touring in their  Airstream trailer.  Marguerite Poulsen was the dinner convenor and she and several other members of  the Auxiliary designed and carried out the  most effective decorations.  The members wish to thank those who  donated such generous gifts for the raffle  prizes and those who supported them by  buying tickets or helping in any way.  ��� clip & send to us at Box 1400, Sechelt ���  for reservations & tickets call Jan at  885-3265  12 years experience plus a lifetime of integrity.  air nt ChrtatmaM Unit"-.

December 15,1976  Ihrisimas atmosphere for meeting  By JOAN RIGBY  Twenty-seven members of the Gibsons  Hospital Auxiliary met for a festive luncheon  at the Cedar's Inn.  *a>  The banquet room was seasonally  decorated, and Jean Longley, Ida Leslie and  writer had an extra hour's pleasure adding  our own Christmassy touch to the tables,  Annie Metcalfe won the door prize, a  lovely Poinsettia. We had put the magic  number under a bread and butter plate, but  the plates were removed before we got  around to looking under them. All was not  lost, however, as the lady who had put the  number on the winning plate remembered  which place setting it had been, and amid  much laughter, Annie turned over her plate to  discover the winning number.  We did manage to eventually get down to  business and heard reports from the bridge,  committee, Thrift Shop, quilting, extended  care, gift shop, therapy and the sunshine  convenor.  Our ladies worked 62 hours in various  departments in the hospital, and several  more of course in the thrift shop.  The thrift shop ladies spend many hours  sorting, which they never record. We were  happy to hear from Vi Harris, our treasurer,  that because we are a non-profit community  service there will be no service charge  against our account.  Our junior auxilians, the candy-stripers,  are doing a wonderful job working the Gift  Shop cart Saturdays, Sundays and holidays;  We have some young people of whom to be  very proud.  We ask you to keep in mind your opportunity to send your Christmas wishes by  giving a donation to the hospital through the  Royal Bank or Bank of Montreal. Your wishes  will be published in The Times. Thank you for  your support of our own hospital. May your  Christmas be one of blessing, and your New  Year be filled with realized hope.

ambier plan
gets approval
. The provincial government has approved
a community play for Gambier Island that
would limit development and impose strict
pollution controls.
,'   The plan, drawn up in May by a committee
; c-f island residents, must now go before the
.Sunshine Coast Regional Board for fourth and
iinal reading. Major recommendations of the
' plan include strict protection of watersheds to
preserve the quality and quantity of local
water, preservation of marine, animal and
.bird life, a controlled road system and a ban
on all commercial activity in the near future.
The SCRD will also be asked to approve
suggestions for a moratorium on crown land
timber licences and a ban on any further log
booming, sorting and storage.
Gambier residents'also want to establish a
volunteer fire department and receive
adequate protection during the tourist
: season.
A meeting of the executive committee of
the Sunshine Coast Music and Drama
Festival was held on December 6 at the Home
of Mrs. Mary Brooks.
Warren McKibbin was the guest speaker,

A Sechelt sailor spent 17 days clinging to
his capsized trimaran before he was rescued
for the Tasman sea by a tuna boat.
Gary Gagne, 27, was 15 days out of Suva
and on his way to New Zealand when his
$20,000 boat was blown over in a gale.
Gagne told reporters in Nelson, New
Zealand he spent the first two days trapped
inside the partly submerged hull of his vessel
Cloud and then hacked his way out when the
storm ended. ,
He was living off beans and rice cooked in
seawater when he was accidentally spotted
December 5 by a pilot of a helicopter from the
tuna boat Apollo. .
Gagne said later several ships had passed
the upturned boat without sighting him and
his supply of flares had been exhausted.
The Apollo radioed a second tuna boat the
Kerri-M which picked up Gagne and then
rammed and sank the Cloud to prevent it
from becoming a shipping hazard.
After reaching' New Zealand Gagne
requested police authorities to contact the
Sechelt RCMP and ask them to find his sister,
believed to be living in the Pender Harbour
But according to Sgt. Peter Church,
the local police discovered she had moved to
Trail Bay Mall

The days when it was customary oruy to,
"deck the halls with boughs of holly" to mark
the Christmas season are long gone. Today
the most active part of the commercial
gardening scene is the satisfying of a rising
demand for pot plants of all kinds. Every
home boasts poinsettias, azaleas, cyclomen,.
cineraria or some of the more exotic tropical
plants turned out in such quantities by the
greenhouses and nurseries. Before going into
detail on the care and feeding of these
delightful visitors, a word of warning is olV
fered. >
The demand for tropical plants,has in^..
creased to such an extent that it has attracted' -
the attention of the entrepreneur whose only
interest in the growing plant is the money to
be made out of selling it. A recent talk with
one of the major greenhouse operators in
B.C., a man who has spent his whole life in
the business, revealed that a new twist has
recently been developed by these ambitious
gentlemen, * one that can cause much
disappointment to the uninformed purchaser,
waste money and damage the reputation of
the trade.
Tropical plants are of course all imported
, from Florida and the warm areas to the
south. Professional florists and nurserymen
bring these plants in, and put them in controlled nursery conditions designed to acclimatize them to our cooler temperatures for
a period of some weeks before offering them
to the public. To do this successfully means of
course the employment of skills and' experience and the provision of expensive accommodation and care.
But some bright chap decided that this
could all be short circuited with a little
ingenuity and aggressive sales techniques. So
he took a truck and trailer down south to the
growing areas, loaded it up with plants and
brought it back to B.C, Here he proceeded to
peddle the plants to all the outlets who handle
the trade at the retail level. This did not prove
to be all that easy as most of such outlets have
their regular suppliers, but he did finally get
rid of them at a cut rate to a chain that
probably bought them in good faith but with
little experience of*, the florist trade.
According to my expert informant, the
odds of these plants surviving are slim Indeed, and the moral of the story is simply
treat all such cut rate offerings with suspicion
unless you know the history. Better still buy
your plants from n reputable professional
who knows the business, nnd can give you tho
right advice on tho treatment of these
delicate things,,
Tho most common of these visitors from
warmer climes Is of course tho poinsettia.
Orlginnlly an Immigrant from Mexico nnd
offering a bright red 'flower' which of course
la not a flower nt all, It has been developed by
tho hybridists till wc Imve quite n range of
colours'from white through shades of orange
to red of various depths. Moreover If ouch is
tho desire it'can bo kept in 'bloom' nnd beauty
till well on Into spring. The determining
factors arc temperature and water. Too much
or too llttlo warmth will menn loss of the
lovely coloured growth nnd a temperature
| ' range of OOF or 10C degree:-, to 72F or 22C
degrees is nbout right,
j Keep wnlered only to tho point thnt tho noli
does not dry out nnd do not let any water
stand around. Regular wnlorlng Is not a
bright Idea with any house plants nnd mnny
nro killed by people obsessed with tho Idea
that thoy must l>e watered every day. It
should bo dono according to ■ soil conditions
which will niter with house conditions of
temperature nnd humidity.
Water the polmcltla with hike warm
water, keep It away from drafts and give It nil
tho sunlight you can find. It will continue to
brighten your life for mnny weeks after the
Christmas season Ls « memory.

Asthma, Tuberculosis,  Chronic Bronchitis, Air Pollution  Use Christmas Seals  It's a matter of life and breath  BRITISH COLUMBIA'S attorney-  general has declared war on the  province's drinking drivers. He has  promised the Christmas roadside checks  of motorists that began this week will  not end after the holidays are over but  will continue year round. Meanwhile the  local RCMP wish you Merry Christmas  and warn what will happen to you if you  are convicted of impaired driving.  Besides a fine and in some cases a prison  sentence, you will lose your driver's  license for three months for a first offence. Where injury, death, or reportable property damage occurs your  license will be suspended for six months.  For a second offence your license will be  taken away for six months and if you  injure or kill someone or cause property  damage the length of time goes up to a  year. Remember these are the  minimum requirements, a judge can  impose a greater suspension on you if he  feels it is justified. So think before you  get into that car.  ��� Timesphoto  Season's **���  v   Q/teetoigs 'jnom  |   TAMMY'S  M        at the Earls Cove Ferry Terminal  T 883-9012  V  ���A        We'll be serving  .*   SPECIAL  CHRISTMAS DINNER  December 25 and 26  JANUARY 1st NEW YEAR'S TREAT!

As more and more people are becoming aware of the power and  bureaucracy involved with Regional Boards.Jhe "care less attitude" in  Victoria regarding the rights of the individual property owner, the more  they realize a strong organization, sticking up for these rights, is  required. People are the power.  In the past three weeks we have had 36 new members join, bringing  our total to 430. Let us make it 500 for the new year.  Due to the lack of answers from the Hon. Mr. Curtis's office, to our  letters dating back to June and more recently one t6 the Regional Board,  we have been forced to postpone our planned general meeting.  It is rumored the Regional Board will set up a "community plan" for  Area A' in the near future. It is hoped that they will hold a public meeting  in the area and an election of community members. It will then be the  duty of all property owners to attend this meeting to make sure we don't  just end up with a rubber stamp for present policy, or be accused of  control by the developers.  TO THOSE OF YOU WHO REMEMBER WHEN  ��� You were on a list to get a quart of milk at the store.  ��� Fresh vegetables and meat if and when the boat arrived and youjgot  there early.  ��� Ordered your Christmas Cheer two weeks before Christmas and end  up dry the day before.  ��� The phone exchange shut down at 6 p.m. -'  ��� There wasn't any road to Francis Peninsula or Egmont.  ��� When many people.packed water by boat in the dry season. It didn't  seem-to rain so much then.  ��� The putt-putt of one-lungers and diesel light plants was hard to take  some mornings.  ��� The road to Gibsons was two muddy wheel tracks and the bus ran  twice a week.  ��� And what did we ever do without TV.  Of course you could get ambitious and whack up a dog house in a  day, no red tape or cement foundation and you neighbor .didn't complain  you were upsetting the environment.  Sure we've come a long way but we have a long way to go yet to  make our community a viable unit and this we cannot accomplish under  present land use regulations and'the backward attitude that eliminating  people will solve all the problems. '  Wake up Area A to a prosperous New Year and autonomy for us.  Your executive wishes one and all a very Merry Christmas and good  luck Pender High School students, the new Medical Clinic, the local  hockey team and the residents of Area E. Thanks to the PHVFD and  please Mr. Bennett, give Mr. Curtis a couple of more secretaries for  Christmas.

Following the passing of the fire district  referendum, no time has been lost in appointing a committee and getting started on  the formation of a volunteer fire brigade to  cover the district from Bayview to Wood Bay.  The committee consists of Patrick Murphy,  George Murray, Gerry Harrington, Roy Hill  and Bob Paulhus.  One of the first tasks the committee has  undertaken is to build a firehall and they have  set themselves a target date off May 1977 for  its completion. Negotiations are in hand for a  site in the Halfmoon Bay area and, as it is  necessary to keep costs as low as possible on  the fire hall, the committee is seeking  volunteers ��� carpenters, electricians,  plumbers, roofers and owners of heavy  machinery who would be willing to help clear  the land for building. Volunteers are asked to  telephone George Murray at 885-2613.  The committee is also anxious to have the  names of all persons in the fire district who  are interested in serving as firefighters.  Volunteers, male or female, young or not as  young, should telephone Bob Paulhus at 885-  3685. Bob would also like to have the names of  boys and girls between the ages of 14 and 18;  willing to form a junior volunteer force.  The Christmas dinner of the Welcome  Beach Community Association will be served  on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. Admission is by  ticket only. The association is also planning a  New Year's Eve Party at the Welcome Beach  Hall at 9 p.m. on December 31. Tickets, $1  each, are obtainable from Olive Comyn (885-  2378) and members' house guests will be  welcome. Guests should bring their own  drinks, including mixers and food.  Have you noticed that at this time of year,  even the dourest of us start to mellow and  become imbued with at least a touch of the  Christmas spirit?  Not so our Transport Minister, Jack Davis  who has chosen this season of goodwill to  make yet another attempt at becoming the  Sunshine Coast's most hated man. His  decision to curtail the ferry sailings just 12  days before Christmas is untimely, to say the  least, but the fact that it comes about without  warning or previous consultation with the  people most concerned, is still another  - example of his complete disregard for the  welfare of the residents of the Sunshine Coast.  Ralph Mahar is one of several people who  have been commuting to Vancouver five days  a week by the 5:30 a.m. ferry. With this ferry  cancelled, it is now impossible for him to get  to his job in Vancouver on time. Oh his return  journey at night, since he does not leave his  work in time to catch the 5:10 p.m. ferry, he  . will have to hang around for the 7:30 p.m.  ferry. The change of ferry schedule has made  necessary a change in the bus schedule, so  our readers are warned to check new times  ���bx Mary Tinkfoy.  for buses before embarking on a-bus journey. -  The December whist drive brought out a  good crowd- for a .happy and successful  evening. High score winners were Marie Ives  and Alex Ellis. Please note that the January  whist drive will be on the second Saturday of  the month (i.e. January 8) instead of the first  Saturday.

As usual it was a great affair, good food,  great speakers, and wonderful music.  The head table held such honorable persons as president George and Mary Flay,  Secretary Rob and Roberta Janis, Sergeant  Peter and Jane Church of the RCMP, Ray and  Joan Kraft, local Fisheries Officer, special  guests were Al and Fiona West, Al is;  supervisor for the Lower Mainland Fish and  Wildlife, plus Deiter Godt, chairman for the -  Lower Mainland Wildlife Federation.  Chairman for the proceedings were Bill  and Bea  Rankin who  contributed their  organizing ability to make it an enjoyable ",  affair once again.  The Legion Ladies did an efficient job of  cooking and serving the game dinner, meat  supplied by the hunters of the Rod and Gun  Club. The gourmet snack table for later  evening eating was supplied by the ladies of  the Rod and Gun Club, Budd Fearnley caught  the salmon, some baked and some smoked,  the smoking done by Manfred Cook. Then  there was crab, oysters; marinated cod, fare  typical of our coast, a delicious feast.  The Sechelt Volunteer Fire Department  dispenses the beverage for jollification.  The music which got everyone out on the  floor was played by Al Denoni and his orchestra, which included Ben - Manning  drummer, Bonny Sprinkle,. and Ron  Lukawitski from Victoria. There was a fair  worry on the band's part as one ferry was late  and another broken down, but they arrived in  good time to keep their appointment with  dancers who looked forward to their grand  music.  Al West, who was honored recently in  Victoria where he received an award for 25  years' service with the' Fish and Wildlife  Department, spoke briefly and concluded by  saying it is such a great pleasure working for  people such as the ones in Sechelt area..  Dieter Godt was asked by Bob Janis to  speak on membership. Bob is the local  delegate to the Lower Mainland Federation  and is highly thought of there too.  Speaking on membership, Godt said, it  doesn't matter how good your ideas are you  must convince someone of them so more  numbers of people become successful. The  Lower Mainland Zone thrives on stronger  clubs, more effective at provincial level, the  more members, like pyramids you and your  Batchelor and won by Colin Spencer, second  prize donated by Nova Jewellers won by Bill  Dennett from North Vancouver. ,  erry cards  >��puBar item  Resident identification cards 'are a  popular item according to statistics released  by the Gibsons village clerk.

December 13, 1976  ros@y smm  oenix  On October 17,1975 Hartt Crosby's shake  mill at Wilson Creek went up in flames.  The building, except for one loading dock,  was completely destroyed. This week,  phoenix-like from the ashes, a new mill goes  into full production on the original site.  The start up probably would have been  sooner butafter a change in the area's zoning  laws it took until the middle of April to get  approval from the.regional district to rebuild  the mill, Crosby sai^.  The building, visible to Highway 101 users,  is constructed of wood, mainly cedar,and  much of the surface is covered with the mill's  own products.   -.."*  The Wilson Creek mill makes what is  known as a resawn shake, one that is first  handsplit and then finished mechanically.  Are you part of the. human race  or just'a spectator?  a  psmapscnan  lV. pj-ttnt**. tn tour henn ynu know k\ nrtil N  rises  ashes  The wood is 24 inches long with a rough front,  smooth back and no defects. A shingle is cut  from a lower grade of log, is machine sawn  and contains some defects in the wood surface.  Crosby's ultimate intention is to ship 60  per cent of his products to offshore markets,  currently he has orders from Germany,  Australia and Japan, he said.  He maintains the cost of shipping is so high  the quality must be excellent to ensure  customer satisfaction and thus reorders.  Crosby says log supply is an extremely  important factor in the shake and shingle  business. He deals almost entirely with local  logging companies and points out "we require  a certain type of wood and it takes a while to  train loggers to recognize exactly what ewe  need. I'm proud of the. fact we use logs that  would otherwise be left in the woods."  ' Crosby is also hoping to get wood from  local shake cutters as he wants to "keep as  much business as possible on the Pen-  ninsula." Eight men are employed to run  the new machinery.  A FOJRKLIFT and a wooden trough are  used to move logs into Hartt Crosby's  new Wilson Creek mill. Inside a giant  saw fashions the wood into shingles and  shakes.  ��� Timesphoto  The Bethel Baptist Church of Sechelt will  be holding special services during this  Christmas season.

At one time he stopped the  caller and went over to a set of square dancers. He put a shoe box on the left foot of each  of the men and oven mitts on the ladies then  .the fun began as the Surrey Square Wheelers  caller Al Berry did some pretty derned fancy  . calling. I think that was Uie only square that  group of square dancers did real well.  With caller Harry Robertson, M.C. of the  square dance program, the evening went  very quick and smoothly with Al Berry and  myself going call for call, you might say that  we were the three best callers there. In fact,  the two square dance clubs were fortunate to*  . have all of this talent in one hall at the same  time.    When Al Berry was called to the mike the  first time, we were amazed to see him  struggle up on crutches. It seems that he had  torn a muscle in his left leg while trying to  beat his students in a basketball game  Friday at school. Anyway, at this point, our  president of vice Merril Bowes presented Al  with a large badge saying this is a NO, NO.  However, although he couldn't square dance,  his calling was without a doubt superb:  -The next thing we knew, Merril had  stopped the floor again and went over to  Louise Mason and said, "I have been watching you and you don't seem to.be seeing too  well," so he put a huge set of sun glasses on  her and said, 'there now, take a good'look at  your corner and the one beside you is your  partner now, on with the square dance."  I have a note here saying that Harry goofed  but I can't remember what he did or didn't  do; if any of you can remember let me know.  At one point when Al Berry came up to call  a tip, I said that my feet was shure beginning  to complain and he said there is only one thing  to do. He took his shoes off. Well, this didn't  help my feet but I did try to auction off his  shoes when he wasn't looking. One thing I  learned quick like was that I will never make  an auctioneer. I couldn't stand it.  Well to wind up this part of the column, the  evening started with a smorgasbord well  planned by convenours Maureen Zueff and  Bev Brandon along with all the ladies in the  square dance club and this was terrific. The  calling with M.C. Harry Robertson, Al Berry  and Squaringly Yours, kept the floor a hopping with over eight sets present including  three sets of Surrey Square Wheelers and  their caller Al Berry with his partner Joy  Macleod. A real good turn out and to wind up  the evening we sat down for coffee and  unknowing to us a group of the Square  Wheelers made up a poem and sang it to us. It  went like this.        .  "The Surrey Square Wheelers, Have sure  had sum fun.  "Despite Bennet's Ferries, We're glad we  could come.  "We danced some to Harry, It sure was a  "And then we danced more, To a guy  called Maurace,  We brought along Al too, Although he can't  run.  "We thank The Country Stars, For bur  evening of fun."  The Country Stars too, not to be outdone,  danced the whole evening and had a lot of fun.  To wind up the nite, twas quite a delight,  with Al Berry's sing-along, made a fantastic  sight, with me and my trusty guitar don't you  see, all I asked Al was, "What is the key?"  Flash ��� after Al Berry making sure that  everyone of his square dancers made the  11:55 ferry, he missed it, the excuses are  many and not all printable.  Dec. 10 ��� Last Friday night The Country  Stars were still talking of the great time had  by all with The Surrey Square Wheelers and  ,   we hope to visit them soon. Happy square  (lancing to all.
