Their  school and church on Reserve No. 2 were  served by a handful of nuns from France  and a resident Oblate priest.  At Christmas most of the casuals left to  celebrate In Vancouver. The neighbours  who remained visited among themselves  and made their own entertainment. They  took pleasure in the Christmas trees attached to the masts of each of tho many  tugs passing by or sheltering their booms  ln Trail Bay. Mail arrived by steamer only  three times a week, so much excitement  was engendered when people stood in line  at the post office wicket in the store,  waiting for the sorting of parcels and  letters from distant families and friends.  The ships, also brought special orders of  holly and pheasant-eyed narcissi, a  favoured Christmas flower early in the  century. Japanese oranges were a  seasonal treat in 1912, as now, but cost only  thirty-five cents per box.  The Indian people were inspired to  build their residential school in 1004 after  their representatives attended a splendid  Christmas entertainment at the Squamish  boarding school ln North Vancouver. The  Sechelt Indians in 1912 issued Invitations to  their white neighbours to attend a  Christmas concert at the original three-  storey wooden school.

PIONEERING IN HALFMOON BAY   -  Life wasn't all that easy for the  pioneers who settled in the bay K me early  part of nwcentujy; They aid MerytHng  the hard way and had none of the luxuries  which havo so quickly become necessities.  They had to, cut wood for cooking and  heating and the fires had to be continually  fed. There were no roads and, consequently, no cars. There was no wharf  until around 1920, so it was necessary to  row out Into the bay to take freight and  mail from the coast steamers. So. on this  Qiristmos Eve, let us take a look back into  tho past through the eyes of some of those  pioneers who are still with us.  THE DUNN STORY  ' One of these is Edna Gladstone, who  now lives in Aldergrovo, after having  resided on the Sunshine Coast for over fifty  years. Her father, Frederick A. Dunn,  became interested in this coast when he  was working with a survey team in 1911  and he pre-empted 160 acres of land near  Welcome Pass, around what is now known  He obtained the position of linesman,  r^j^jjyilhlei for the upkeep of the single  telegraph line.

".Sort of a throw-back to the days a few  years ago when I was having labor  problems with my elves," Santa said.  "I had to take them on my lap and say,  look, you know what it's like before  Christmas, productivity is everything".  "With the economy the way it is, you  know, money is tight and my income  doesn't start coming ln until the wife sends  out the Invoices after Christmas.  "And they understood���they're quite a  bit smaller than you, though," Santa said,  shifting uncomfortably.  ""Xflenr lot'Sf ipe^lerSa'stta s^rm'HtUe  love for reporters. He attributes some of  his labor problems with the elves to what  they have read in newspapers and, he  says, in each city or town he visits, he finds  it necessary to give interviews to "clear  the air."  "They (reporters) are so cynical ��� they  can't believe I'm doing thU out of love for  all children. They want to know my profit  margin, my market and, for Santa'b sake,  my age.  "What does my age have to do with it?"  Santa couldn't seem to grasp the Idea of  the mandatory retirement age of 85 when  this reporter explained It.  "Sixty-five? I can't remember the year  I saw 65. If I quit then, what would have  happened? You know the old saying, if you  don't do It yourself, It won't get done? I  originated that one."  "Reporters, they keep trying to pin you  gifts on Christmas?"  "Say, what's a nice girl like you doing  ln a Job llko that, ho ho ho," Santa  chuckled.  "Well, I guess a girl has to make a  living somehow nowadays. It's not such a  bad Idea."  Santa said he is all for women's independence; after all, he and his wife have  been equal partners for years.  "What's sauce for the gander is sauce  for the goose, ho ho ho."  He does, have some reservations,  however, and some advice for singles.  "You're not particularly fond of  children, right now, eh?" he asked.  "Well, that's okay for now, but things  will change. I blame tho present state of  the Western World on the break-up of the  family unit.  "Families come together at Christmas,  but mora and more I, see lonely people out  there ��� I try to leave a llttlo something for  them, butChristms Isn't tho some without  a family to shore It with.  "Maybe I should admit to some self-  interest In this matter. If It weren't for  families, I'd be out of business.

At a press conference in St. Mary's  hospital board room Chairman- of the  board Gordon Hall asked Peninsula Times  and Press reporters to check immediately  with editors whether the condition would,  be agreed to.  The Coast News was not present.  Botheditorssaid the guarantee could  not be made due to the amount of space  available in the newspaper.  Peninsula Times editor Bill Bell said  the newspaper could not guarantee  printing any report before it is read. Bell,  however, offered to read over the report  with.Hall. ; ; 'r  Hall said the hospital board, at its  regular meeting December 17, agreed to  release the "report in its entirety to the  press and interested parties."   , .  A motion moved by trustee John Logan  read "that Dr. Ranta's report be given to  the local newspapers with the proviso that  the report be printed in its entirety."  Learning editors Bell and Dick Proctor  (The Press) could not agree to the proviso,  Hall said, "Under those circumstances I  really don't have any alternative but to  deny the report on this basis because (bee  I give it to you, I have, no guarantee of its  (printing in) entirety."  After the press conference, Bell approached the hospital administration  office and requested a copy of the report  from personnel officer Lilo Buchhorn.  Bell said he was an "interested party"  and the report_is restricted.oplyrto\th*;1;  ^'Therefore, we will be sending you a  press according to'the motion.  ,% "As someone who has spent time in this  hospital and is coming back for a major  operation, I would likts to read what is ih  the report," Bell added. J  After speaking to Hall, Mrs. Buchhorn  said "he is refusing at this point to release  the report to anyone."    ' *       ./. Y  Later in the day, the Peninsula Times  received a letter from Hall which stated:  "In view of the fact that all newspapers  were not able to be represented at the  December 20 news release and that those  represented did not have the authority to  comply with, the request of the board to  print, in its entirety, the results-of Dr.  Ranta's impartial enquiry, we feel we  have no recourse but to have the report  published as a paid statement of fact to the  public.  copy which is to be accepted as a paid  publication, Thursday, January 3,1980 in  order that all newspapers wUl have an  equal opportunity to publish this report the  same week."  ..Copies of the report will be made  available at the hospital the same day to  interested parties, the letter ended.  A reliable source told the Times the  board has "nothing to be afraid of' in  giving the report'to the press.  The repprj; generally had praise for the  board and the running of the hospital and  "while there may be some lack of com  munication, it was deliberate and could be  resolved," the source said.  Dr. Ranta suggested ways in which to  improve communication between the staff  and the hospital board, one of which was to  allow representatives to sit in with the  board during certain parts of the  meetings.  Also there was some feeling among  extended care staff they were less important than those in the acute care section of the hospital.        ' <  Dr. Ranta suggested the environment  in extended care should be considered as  important as acute care, the source said.  Chief of staff .Eric Paetkau told the  Times he could .not comment Whether the  hospital board's decision not to release the  report was correct  The, board's reasoning, he said, was the  report should be printed "without  editorializing, without breaking it up or  distorting it."  "I think the feeling was that you turned  this into an enormously big issue," Dr.  Paetkau said.

Coast finally gets  The Ministry of Education last week  designated School District 46 as part of the  Capilano College region, but the secondary  institution will not be able to offer too  many courses on the coast.  At least, not until next September, ���  according to the Capilano principal Paul  Gallagher.  "The major stumbling block ln getting  the planned program rolling for January  was finding a place," Gallagher said. "We  are trying to get a location where we can  operate out of for the next few years."  Despite the difficulties in finding a  place, Gallagher told the Times the funding has been approved and Capilano  College would be offering a 200-level  psychology course out of Chatelech Junior  Secondary in January, as well as three  courses through its Continuing Education  department.  These will include: Spanish, creative  Lovely weather - for ducks  It was lovely weather last week ��� for a  duck.  Steady rainfall from Sunday,  December 16, to Tuesday night, December  18 poured a little more than an average of  four Inches of water on the Sunshine Coast.  The figures used are based on Gibsons'  rainfall recorded by Marianne West for  the federal Atmosphere Environment  Service.  The heavy rainfall created problems  for the Dept. of Highways whose employees, working round the clock in anticipation of snow, unexpectedly were kept*  busy unclogging culverts plugged by  debris washed down from the creeks.  Manager Tucker Forsyte told tho  Times "the amount of rain was Just too  much for the drainage ln some places".  Road shoulders were washed away In  some areas as were some residents'  driveways.  Forsyte said a similar situation occurred in 1972 and Mrs. West's figures  back it up. Rainfall for December, 1972,  was a record 12.81 inches. It is possible this  month may equal it.  B.C. Hydro District manager Erich  Hensch said strong winds rather than the  rain were responsible for a power outage  December 17 which affected approximately 200 customers In the South-  wood and Francis Rd. areas in Halfmoon  Bay.  A tree falling on the line was responsible for this and another outage in  Roberts Creek the same day and for the  outage at East Egmont across the  Skookumchuck December 19.  ELUC sets meeting guidelines  The Environmental Land-Use Committee has set the guidelines for the  January iO public meeting Into "the  proposed B.C. Hydro Cheekye to Dunsmuir 500 KV transmission line.  The meeting, which will start at 7 p.m.  at the Madeira Park Community Hall will  "focus on two alternative routes through  tho Sakinaw and Ruby Lake areas which  have been proposed by B.C. Hydro."  According to an advertisement appearing in today's paper, the landowners  and leaseholders on the Sunshine Coast as  well as members of the public are Invited  to prepare and submit written briefs to the  Minister of the Environment.  People who are not able to submit  briefs prior to the meeting will be allowed  to present their briefs at the public  -meeting.- ���������<��������� -- - - .��������  ;���--<���- ������  Director Joo Harrison has criticised the  meeting, saying' 'the options are not really  options at all."

Gallagher also said Capilano College  was definitely going to offer a full first  year of academic university transfer  courses starting in September.  He added Capilano college was looking  into some short term vocational programs  such as small engine maintenance.  "One of the vocational programs we  are looking at is a small engine repair  course in conjunction with the Sechelt  Indian Band," Gallagher said.  The college will be employing a community assistant in the new year who will  be acting as an interim-co-ordlnator.  Meanwhile, deputy minister of  education Walter Hardwich has informed  the Sunshine Coast School Board they now  are part of the Capilano College region and  will have to appoint a member to the  college board.  "In accordance with Section 7 (4) of the  Colleges and Provincial Institutes Act, the  minister has determined that your board  will appoint one representative to the;  college board. This appointment is to  become effective February 1, 1980,"  Hardwick stated ln a letter to the School  Board.  Hardwick also explained to the board  by Joining the college region, it would not  have to contribute funds out of its local tax  base to the operation of the college.  "The proposed changes to the funding  of colleges, which removes the local  taxation share, have now occurred," he  said.  VILLAGE TAXI LTD.

Cornm-Dev'  VHF-  ���5 886-7918  By BILL BELL  The picture of the Christmas lights at  Weal Inn which you see on the front page  of this issue has a little story behind it.  The story should be called "The  Misadventures of Bill (Bozo) Bell"  because it took three attempts to take the  picture.  ' The first day: Driving home in the  pouring rain from the hospital, I see the  lights and decide to stop and try to take a  picture for this special Christmas edition.  Pull a U-turn and park at the side of the  road leaving my lights flashing as a  warning. Try to climb embankment but  discover, much to my horror ��� a deep  ditch filled with mud. Finally get up  embankment, but discover a high barbed  wire fence. Take the pictures anyway and  return to my car to finid my battery is dead  as a door knob.  Half an hour later, somebody finally  stops to help out. The good Samaritan is  driving a Volkswagen and asks if I need  help.  Fifteen minutes later, we finally find  his battery under the bads seat of his car  and jump start my car.  Pictures didn't turn out.  Last Tuesday night, the rain finally lets  up so borrow a bipod and with some added  information on how-to take the picture-  head out to the Weal Inn once again.  This time I decide to call wi the Weals  and set up the right shot from inside the  compound.  Turn up Oldershaw road, which despite  the lack of rain is more a river; turn onto  the first driveway I come to at which time  my car quickly sinks into a bog.  I spend about two hours in the mud ���  jacking up the car, putting rocks under the  tires. Come to the obvious conclusion that  I'm really stuck. ���,-���-<*��� "-  '- ' Head off ifl Search df telepHone as /  rain starts up again. First house^nobbdy'  home���second house there is a woman by  herself.  "Hello Maam. I'm stuck in the mud out  here and I wonder if I could, use your  phone."  "Why don't you try the house down the  street," says the woman who obviously is  ''cautious of strange men who come calling  in the middle of a stormy night.  Have to put her at ease I say to myself.  "Well maam, I was trying to take a picture  of the Christinas lights for the Peninsula  Times. My name is Bill Bell and I'm the  editor of the Times."  "Oh," she says, "I don't usually do this  sort of thing but since I enjoy your  newspaper so much, come on in and i_e  the phone." I  Finally get a friend to come and pullme  out, but this time it Is too late to take the  picture.  Wednesday: I set out to try again.  Success: Mr. Weal is home and lets me in.  Out into his field we go as I cautiously  watch his large St. Bernard. Set up my  camera and proceed to take several different types of shots.  Mr. Weal turns around and says "Oh  there is only one thing I forgot to tell you."  "What," I ask as I step back and get the  shock of my life as my behind hits the  .electric fence. ,,  "That," Mr. Weals grins.5  Well, the moral of this story is that  some pictures may be worth a thousand  words, but the picture of the Weal lights on  the front page deserves a story.  <-i  nOm,  CDE &  Browning CB  Auth.  pecca  Radar  C��ntr��  LEASE-A-  RADAR  Also  land  Radio  Telephones  MOTOROLA Ask US about  MARCONI our  "RSS-    DECCA LEASE  Motorola  Marconi  Redicom  Apelco  also  Service  * Forono  >��_���________���**>   _Pkl  A,so     ' WM_B_HPV_rC  Most ma\SriW'7m%__W:??i'   B  DepthJ^n^rUlgiffi. . ^Z  MILLER MARINE -faum  ELECTRONICS T0��f��  Across from'the Bank of Montreal, Olbsons  SUNSHINE COAST TV  SALES fr SERVICE  IN THE  V  OF SECHELT  flow Open MONDAY��� SATURDAY, 9:30am - 5:30  885-9816    Admiral  Ask about our -   <^=r> Mark of Quality  "Package" deals.

She recalls that everybody around  the Bay spent Christmas at the home of  Mrs. Clara LyeU.Halfmoon Bay's famous  pioneer postmistress.  There was always a Christmas tree and  food and goodies-for all, with Edna's  father playing the part of Santa Claus.  There would be carolsinging.accompanled  by Mrs. Lyell on the organ which she had  brought with her from England by way of  , Cape Horn. Edna was a small child at this  time, but she did not think there was any.  drinking, though she believes Mrs. Lyell  used to have a bottle,of port wine for  special occasions.  THE BROOKS STORY  Edna Dunn married Russell H. Brooks  in 1924 and they bought part of her father's,  property at Brooks Cove and builtthe fine  home where Sue and Casey Brennan now  live. They cut four miles of bridle trail  through the bush to Halfmoon Bay so that  they could travel on horseback to get their  stores and mail and take their children to  school.       '  On Christmas Day, Tom Wall would  milk the cows and make his milk, round  just as he did on every other day of the  year. He would go as far as the Redrooffs'  Resort where, after delivering the milk, he  would take time out for a drink with his.  crony, George King, a lovable and interesting man who bad seized with the  Imperial Army in India for many years  and who was then caretaker at the  Redrooffs Resort.  Generally, however,. Christmas, Day  was a time for visiting your friends and  neighbours and by the time Tom Wall  returned from his milk round, many  ' residents were already on the move. As  they went from house to house, their  number increased and by the time they  reached the Wall ranch, the group was  large enough to fill the Wall's spacious  room.  After climbing the steep Trout Lake  Road they all had fine thirsts and were  ready to sample Tom's beer, blackberry  wine or potato champagne/Many of them  would carry away an extra bottle of Tom's  wine to see them through (he rest of the  holiday.  Mrs. Wall was a generous and  hospitable hostess and anybody who was  around at mealtimes would automatically  be invited to stay and eat with the family.  Pat assures ut that her mother never knew  how many people she would be serving for  Christinas dinner. When Pat was old  enough to share in the work of the  homestead, her father would pay her her  25 cents a hundred for bottling and capping  his home-brewed been  (s��r-  struggleas far asGibsons, where he would  telephone -his customers to come ] and  collect: their supplies. ;���'.;,  DIRTY THIRTIES /  ;. While the depression struck many.parts  of Canada, it caused an Increase in  population around the bay, because,there'"  was fish and game a-plenty in those days .  and wood for the cutting. But it is interesting to see a journal kept by Tom Wall  who, was ay school trustee and who  recorded all school expenses. It shows that  the teacher's salary for December 1932  was $31.65. While it was hardly a princely .  salary it went still lower as* money grew  scarcer and scarcer, until we find that the  teacher received thesumof $9.70 salary in  December 1935. It is hardly surprising to  find that the teacher was only top glad to  undertake the janitorial duties which gave  her an extra three or four dollars a month.  New settlers during' this period were  the Ed Edmunds, the Frank Lyons and the  Wilf aScotts, while Jack and Queenie  Burrows moved to the bay from Pender  , Harbour. Eva Lyons and Queenie Burrows  both teU us that what they remember  chiefly about those early Christmases was  the importance of visiting ones friends and  neighbours. There were still few cars and  most of the visiting, was done by rowboat  or on foot. The favourite drink was a Tom  and Jerry, but even if you did not drink it  was considered a "must" to call on your  neighbours and wish them a happy  Christmas.  CHRISTMAS AT MERRY ISLAND  Christmas has been traditionally ob--  served t& the Merry* Island light Station  since it was built in 1903. The Fred Juilians  who were assistant light keepers from  1957-1966 say it was the custom for the two  families servicing the light to get together  at Christmas, with one of them hosting a  dinner on Christmas Day and the other on  Boxing Day.  Mrs. Julian tells us that while the late  Canon Alan Greene was superintendent of  the Columbia Coast Mission, he always  called in at the lighthouse on Christmas  morning to hold a service. For the carol  singing, he would bring along "Little  Jimmy" the organ which had become so  famous up and down the B.C. Coast and  which now has a place of honour in the  Maritime Museum in Vancouver.  When there are children living on the  station, it is customary for the Canadian  Coast Guard ship which delivers the  Christmas stores and mail to bring along a  Santa Claus, with gifts for the children.  This was done during the Julian's time for  the two children of Keeper George Potts.  The ships she recalls carrying out this  duty were the Estevan and the Sir James  Douglas.  ,At Christmas 1969, it was the Canadian  Coast  Guard  Ship LCaij_ell,   with   a  Santa Claus interview  ���From Page A-l  whole burden himself or goes the other  way and places all the burden on the child.  , "That's just my opinion, of course, and  I'm speaking in generalities. Myself? I  tfeat all children equally. .Sure, in some  countries I may leave switches and rocks  on the doorstep, but inside there is always  a little something.

Because alcohol affects a driver's  judgement, vision and reaction, any of the  following symptoms could alert you to the  fact that the car ahead or behind yoa is not  under proper control.  Slowing down far in advance of intersections or road signs.  Driving very slowly and following the  centre line or the curb.  Continual drifting, even if slight,  between traffic lanes.  Failure to signal turn on headlights,  dim high beams.  Reacting very slowly to traffic light  changes or stopping at green lights.  Following too closely to other vehicles  and mimicking their lane change moves.  Driving with windows wide open even  though temperatures are low.  Unaware of other traffic but staring  straight ahead with hands clenched firmly  on the steering wheel.

'  In 1915, with the first school built on  land donated by Clara Lyell, the school  Christmas concert was a memorable and  historical occasion. The whole community  turned out for the concert, whether they  had children or ndt, and everyone was  dressed in their finest clothes. From that -  time on, the school Christmas concert was  one of the most important celebrations of  the Christmas season.  The school was a primitive structure,  heated by an oil drum converted to a wood  heater and there was no plumbing. There  were outdoor toilets and water had to be  carried in a bucket from the creek, but ,  with some improvements from time to  time, it served until the present school was  built In 1958.  THE WALL RANCH  Pat Ness has lived in Halfmoon Bay all  her life and still lives in her house at the  corner of Mintie Road. Her parents, Tom  and Sarah Wall arrived here in 1919 and  pre-empted 160 acres up the Trout Lake  Road. They built a homestead and introduced into Halfmoon Bay its first car, a  Model T. Ford which Mr. Wall Used to  deliver milk, dairy produce and fruit and  vegetables from his garden.

LOGGING BOOMS  Several logging concerns moved into  the area from 1920 onwards, including the  Nelml, Osborne and Rotter companies.  They brought with them more money and  a different way of life. There were some  lively parties at Christmas and New Year  and we recall that the late Bessie  Roseboom was the life and spirit of many  of them. Some parties were held at an old  cookhouse left by one of' the logging  companies, near what ia now the Bernle  Ackerman home. Then in 1930, Peter  Milne, owner of the Redrooffs Resort built  the pleasant recreation hall which was a  popular rendezvous for Christmas and  New Year parties. We recall New Year  parties being held there as lato as 1956.  Mrs. Cooper now uses the hall as a store.

Bill Bennett  didn't like the  Tories budget  By PREMIER BILL BENNETT  Last week-two major events took place -  in Ottawa:-, on Tuesday the federal  government brought down their budget  and on Thursday that same budget  brought doWn the federal government.  While a federal election will'now be  held on February 18,1 would like to clarify  the provincial government's stand on the  budget.  It is my view, that the budget did not  deal with the number one Canadian  problem at this time���high interest rates.  Those interest rates are hurting every  Canadian by leading to inflation and  hindering the private sector's creation of  the new jobs.  Here at home, for example, those high  interest rates have hurt our construction  and forest industries.  It has been British Columbia's position  at several federal provincial ministerial  meetings that the provinces must have  some representation on the Bank of  Canada so that they can voice their concerns in the formation of policy which  effects the development of provincial  economies.  Of course, there were several specific  concerns that we had with the federal  budget.  In many other ways British Columbia  almost appeared to be the forgotten  province in the budget and several areas  are particularly worrisome.  For instance, in our major cities  availability of rental accommodation is  reaching.an all-time low. The vacancy  rates are now less than one per cent. But  by cancelling the capital cost allowances  that encourage the construction of  apartment buildings, the federal government showed a lack of awareness of  problems on the West Coast.  The same can be said when considering  the concessions given to members of the  fishing industry on the east coast ���  concessions which will have a favourable  impact on the ship-building industry in  those provinces. But that same assistance  was not provided to British Columbia  fishermen. The federal government has  got to be reminded that we have two coasts  . . . two fishing industries . . . and two  areas of ship-building in this country.  However, with the defeat of the  Progressive Conservative government  last Thursday night, this budget is now  rather up in the air, In fact, the whole  country is facing a time of uncertainty and  many federal-provincial projects will have  to be put oh the "back burner" until after  the election, returns are counted.  Over.the campaign weeks I think that  British,C^pabians: should take, a look at  the various policies that all parties have to  offer our province. I know that Lam interested to learn and will be attempting to  find out how each party stands on  provincial representation on the Bank of  Canada, for instance, and on the question  of lowering interest rates which I consider  to be one of the most urgent necessities  facing Canada. >''.���'  Canada has a total area of over 9.1  million square kilometres. However, only  11 per cent or about 1 million square  kilometres, is capable of any form of  agricultural use including rough grazing.  A message from the mayor  As we look forward to 1980 with a certain amount of trepidation,  realizing what has been going on around the world in 1979, it seems to me  that about aU we can do it sit down, close pur eyes and count our blessings.  " We live in a land "flowing with milk and honey". We are' not cast at sea  in leaky vessels; we re not being driven from our homes by cruel invaders;  we are not being imprisoned without trial for speaking out against the  party in power; our children are not starving from lack of food; we are not  being denied the right to return to our homeland as are the Jews in Russia.  We are the most fortunate people in the world.  So let us resolve that during the 366 days of 1980, before we complain  about what, by comparison to the hardships and sufferings of millions of  other citizens of the world, are only minor Inconveniences, we stop and  think just how fortunate we are.

Tb  COMMENT by Raymond Skelly, Member  of Parliament for Comox-Powell River  Tuesday, December 18,1979  There comes a tide ih the affairs of men  When taken at its ebb leads on to fortune, ,    **'  Omitted, all the voyages of life are lost  In shallows and in misery  Upon such a full sea are we now afloat  * Shakespeare  The end of the old year and the old  decade and the end of the thirty first  Parliament provide us with an opportunity  to measure the tide of our affairs and  assess the prospect for'the new. decade.  For Canadians, particularly west  coasters, the 1980s will be challenging and  exciting. The ferment of the 1960s and slow  steeping of the still undefined 1970s have  brought forward issues that must be  squarely faced.  Together we must find an' acceptable "  way to manage our .treasury of natural  resources - fresh water, timber, fish,  minerals, energy sources,- for the greatest  benefit of all now and all those who follow.  We must quickly strike the balance between the necessity of conservation and the '  need?or ii,w_iaT��rials^l^<^ _hd'���"  economic growth. -  *      ~  In the 1980s we wilt be facejd with  territorial challenges over ocean boundaries and off-shore resource control.  Canada has had a poor track record in  territorial disputes to date. The 1980s will  provide us with an opportunity to improve  that record.  Throughout Canada, and especially on  Vancouver Island, the coming years will  present an opportunity to carefully and  rationally assess our energy needs and  demands. An in doing, will allow us to  assess some basic things about our  lifestyles and the kind of society we wish to .  live in and, the costs and benefits of  choosing various energy and lifestyle  options. We may have yet one last chance  to develop a comprehensive and rational  energy plan, incorporating natural gas,  hydro power, waste wood, solar power,  public transit, conservation and other  measures;  A new decade could also mean a new  era in business and labor relations. In a  decade of progress, we might see the  NES report  By ROGER BALANGER  Lask week on Wednesday, three canoes'  left Tsoh-Nye headed for Egmont"��� 28  miles away. It was raining, but the sea  was calm. It was nearly 4; 30 p.m. when we  came to Brittaln River. Fortunately we  came across a, cabin with a sign on the  door welcoming its use by visitors.. .so,  we had,a nice hot meal and'a good sleep.  We were on our way by 10 the next morning and stopped for lunch just around the  point of the helicopter logglngcamp.  After lunch began our longest Journey.  That night we camped at KlUlam Bay, an  abandoned logging dump, ahd slept in our  tents. Afterm goodnlghta Bleep, we headed  for our last day of canoeing; it was  probably our best day because it didn't  rain! We were relieved and happy when  we reached Egmont, so we sat and just  waited for the rest of Tsqh-nye students to  arrive by the "Price".

We had our morning  classes, but in the afternoon we made a  toboggan run, built snowmen, and had  snowball fights. Thursday was our  Christmas dinner, gift exchange and  dance. We were happy to wake up that  morning to 12 Inches of new snow.

Progress  would also mean worker participation in  the decision-making and management of  industry and a mutually beneficial  management - union relationship.  The next months must see us find a way  to correct the serious structural ills in our  economy to find meaningful employment  for all in this rich land of opportunity, to  rationalize our industry and efforts for the  greatest good and to plan for our future  prosperity and personal security well and  with vision.  The 1980s should also see a new deal for  native people in Canada. Such a deal  would guarantee real equality - economic  and social as well as political. The need for  strengthening the economic base and  cultural security is long overdue.  , Changes in energy uses and travel  patterns could mark a spectacular rise in  B.C. tourism as this part of the continent  his .hotel bill., This story* may. be  apocryphal but the Whitaker family did  indeed have a fine collection of paintings  of local .scenery, executed by ti��  Established B.C. artists ot the day. One  dining table at Christmas 1912 was  decorated with four vases of narcissi.  The gas lamps hanging from the dining  room ceiling were described to me by  ArnoloVMcQuarrie who arrived in Sechelt  as a boy in early December 1912 and who  now lives in West Sechelt. In 1915 Arnold  left school and went to work in the  Whitaker store, which was illuminated by  similar fixtures. One of Arnold's jobs was  to light the gas lamps. He used a wick on a  wire and this he clipped in lighting fluid  and lifted up to the ceiling lamps. Then  when the'gas was turned on it gave a nice  white light.

Ruling should  be made  byCTTG  Subject: CRTC HEARINGS CALLED  ON BC TEL MARINE RATE INCREASES  , VICTORIA ~- Norman Levi, MLA  (MaillardviUe-Coqultlam) said today, "I  want to urge every Individual who is  concerned about; the recent BC Tel increases in the rates for marine telephone  equipment and calls for boat owners to be  prepared to makje submissions to the  CRTC when it holds hearings Into this  ' matter." 7  On November 27th, Mr. Levi sent the  following telegram to Charles Dalfen,  Deputy Chairman of the CRTC in Ottawa:  "I have received some complaints from  constituents who ajre boat owners  regarding the recent BC Tel increases in  rates charged for their telephone equip-  , ment and for each call made.  I am Informed that there was no public  hearing into this matter as one was not  required by regulation.  I am now urging you to have the  commission hold a hearing Into this  ^matter in order tha^tlhoseiaffected have���  all the facts relating to the Board'B  decision.

On December 7 Norman Levi was in  touch with his coJleague In Ottawa, Ian ���  Waddell, who is a member of the House of  Commons Committee on Communications. The Deputy Chairman of the  CRTC was before this committee. Waddell  raised the issue of the marine telephone  rates and tha Deputy Chairman agreed  that public hearings would bo held and  that Informational advertisements would  be published very shortly.

CHATELECH SCHOOL BAND  the Christmas band concert held at  Chatelech Junior Secondary Tuesday,  December 18 was an excellent display of  how students learn to be bandspersons.  There were a good nvmber of interested parents on hand to watch and  listen to Weldon Epp, as he put the band  through their repertoire of music.  Mr. Epp was waving a new baton, the  gift of the Grade nine students.  Three levels of band members were  present. First there was the senior group,  and mixed in wiUP them were the grade  eights, all wearing the new uniforms  recently purchased. Makes them look like  a band, and with Mr. Epp as bandmaster  they are well on the way to being an excellent one.  People have asked how is it possible for  so many children of different backgrounds  to learn all the different instruments. This  leads to the third group which is the  learners, some of them just starting for  the first time this fall. Learning how to  play, they have started with a ''gung ho  attitude, great spirit and loving to learn.  He asked the parents to. urge thein to  practise, which they are now doing, but  must continue to do so.   .  It was a very interesting lesson and the  performances of the musicians show great  promise.  . The program ended with the audience  joining the band in a singing of carols. The  first carol "Silent Night" was nowhere to  be found on the provided songsheets.  CAROL SINGING AT ITS BEST  Sunday, December 16th, an evening of  Christmas songs being sung in a grand  manner at the Sechelt Baptist Church.  This was open to everyone whatever their  religion, numbering 144 voices. A good  turnout and this did not include the choir,  so add another twenty-five or thirty  singers.  The choir was me Sunshine Choristers  led by Jessie Gairns with Bunny Shupe at  the piano and Aleta Gilker on the organ.  The beautiful blending of voices was a joy  to hear. Tom Wood, former Village Clerk  of Sechelt, came from Pemberton where  he holds the same position, just to join the  Choristers, for this Christmas performance.  The ladies of the church provided an  excellent variety of refreshments.  Art McPhee gave a warm welcome to  everyone as well as acting as leader,  giving short scripture readings. Besides  Art McPhee were Ron Higgonbotham and  Jack Phillips.  A beautiful evening, I would recommend to all.  MERRY CHRISTMAS  And a very Happy New Year to  everyone!!!  NORTH COAST  J-  :!

Halfmoon Bay happenings  Mintie Road havoc  a  By Ruth Forrester. 885-2418  The recent floods caused quite a mess  on Mintie road, which is the road on which  the Halfmoon Bay post office is located.  The Halfmoon Creek, which is generally a  gentle little river became a wild torrent  carrying down huge boulders and trees  and washing half of the road away. Pat  Ness is lucky to still have her house  standing���had the deluge been a few feet  over it would have made Short work of the  building. One resident was in the process  of cooking breakfast on his oil stove when  it suddenly began to move. The 250 gal. oil  tank outside the house had been washed  away. Power was cut off in the area for  several hours. It is believed that this was  one of the worst hit areas on the coast.  SANTA VISITS  WELCOME BEACH:  The Halfmoon - Bay Recreation  Association held their annual childrens'  Xmas party at the Welcome Beach Hall on  Sunday, Dec. 16. The hall waspacked with  almost fifty little one��<iui^^e&' parents  and guests. Barbara Gougn played piano  for the carol singing which washed by a  group of the young people comprising  Susan McKibbon, Michelle Grognet, Susan  Perry, Margaret Connor and Dominic  Martel. This was followed by a puppet  show which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  Peggy Connor who was in charge of the  program introduced fire captain Casey  Brennan who gave a brief talk on the  importance of the installation of smoke  detectors in the home, and showed samples of fire extinguishers which are  available. He stressed the fact that at this  time of year the fire hazard is high and  "that while the fire dept are always ready to  answer calls, it is wise to take your own  precautions Ln the home.  Right on the dot of three o'clock there  was a great hubbub of excitement as the  sound of jingle bells was heard as the man  in red made his entry. Santa had a present  for each child and there were many shouts  of joy when packages were opened.  Mary Connor had made a very  beautiful gingerbread house which was  raffled and won by Heidi Goodman. There  was a membership draw with three  prizewinners receiving Halfmoon Bay T.  shirts. These winners were Jerry Mercer,  Donna Perry and Grace Rutherford.  Peggy expressed her thanks to all those  who had worked so hard on making the  day such a great success by providing  sandwiches and goodies for those at  tending. Special mention was made of the  Perry family who did so very much for the  occasion. Art has made a lovely job of the  new stage which has been well used this  holiday season.  Santa called again at the hall on Wed.  morning of the 19th when the Moms and  Tots group had their Christmas party!  Nita Hoagland played carols on the piano  while the moms and wee ones decorated  the Christmas tree. There were over  twenty.little.tots present, and the ex-  citment at .Santa's arrival was something  to behold. Santa Ellis managed to have  time to have a nice wee chat with each  child and to give each one a gift out of his  big red bag. Bonnie Semetiuk had "built"  an exquisite gingerbread house, and  following the serving of drinks and goodies  the wee ones set to demolishing this work  of art.  The Moms and Tots will get together  .

Well I wrote the one  about Santa and the BatmobiT where the  officer thought he saw some impaired  reindeers but thought it was just a dream  and in Carl's poem he said oh the hill up in  Clowhom Camp there were eight fat  reindeer chomping on lettuce, cabbage  and beer and it looked like Rudolph would  be impaired that night. What I'm getting  at is maybe the officer wasn't dreaming  after all.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New  Year to one and all.  very popular Christmas gift-and small  wonder considering how much pleasure a  flowering plant in the bouse brings to these  dark days of whiter."  Frequently one comes across mention  of the Christmas cactus with enquiries as  to its care and feeding. This gardener has  had one in the house for more than 20 years  when a friend donated a small sprig taken  from a mature plant.This year it is  blessing the home with what must be the  best showing of bloom in its life history. It  is solid mass of the crimson double belllike flowers and despite or maybe because  of its years is lovelier than ever. (*You are  not getting older-you are getting better"!)  today it was the subject of discussion  at the lunch table with the person who is  responsible for this happy state of affairs,  she who in fact has controlled the  existence of both fauna and flora of the  household for almost three score years.  It would seem that a policy of "laisse  faire" has worked very well with this  plant. The lady says that after it has  finished blooming along in January, she  lets it rest in some area that is not exposed  either to the cold or the heat until the  weather starts to warm up. then she puts it  ��� outside for the entire summer giving it an  occasional drink of water, but only to the  extent that prevents it from drying out.  Before the winter starts she brings it into '  the house.  Wednesday, December 26,1S79  The Peninsula Times  Page A-7  _������_���__���  Want to get away from, it all?

On the other hand light is essential in  fact it more important than temperature.  In this dull northern latitude it is impossible to give your plant too much light  in winter. African violets are particularly  sensitive to this condition and in fact Very  often more light is the only factor needed  to get blooming started.  But all these recommendations must be  tempered with common sense. So again  while light is essential exposure to full sun  through glass can be disastrous.  Then there is water, which is not to be  confused with humidity, a condition of the  ambient air. Provided the plant is not of  the cactus variety which neither needs or  wants regular watering to sustain life,  most will benefit from standing on a bed of  moist pebbles, peat moss or sand,  assuming that the container is not non  porous plastic without a drain hole. It is  however a mistake to let potted plans  stand in water for more than an hour or so  at a time.

What does  peace mean?       ���   >      ,  To some it's a deep down hope, amidst  the battles'of life, to others the struggles  are over and peace has arrived like, the  evening star and the soul is in repose. To  some it may be heard in the call to arms,  believing "there is nothing so likely to  produce peace, as to be well prepared to  meet the enemy"; and to still others it's a  condition of the mind that dwells not on  outward things, but within the soul!  From ancient times the hearts of men  have longed for peace, not merely for  cessation of war, butfor peace of mind and  heart and soul. In the early days of Israel  the benediction was "The Lord lift up His  countenance upon thee and give thee  peace". Numbers 6:26 Throughout the  lands of the Near and Middle East, even  today, the popular greeting is f'Peace be  unto you". But ah! how far from peace are  the intents and purposes of man's heart!  What then was the import of the  message of the angels at the birth, of,  Christ? In chapter 2 of Luke's gospel, we  read that in the vicinity of Bethlehem, the  town where Christ was born, shepherds  were tending their sheep, perhaps in the  same fields where King David of old, as a  boy, led his flocks. To them a heavenly  messenger appeared with "good tidings of  great joy, which shall be to all people",  and the good news "to all people" was that  "a Savior which is Christ the Lord" was  born!  For centuries a blessed hope and expectancy had been,keenly alive in the  hearts of the faithful that some day a  Deliverer would come. The prophets of old  had foretold it, and now at last the fullness  of the time had come, and the long  promised Savior had arrived! '  The Old Testament Scriptures uses the  word especially of God as the Deliverer of  His people, and the New Testament  similarly refers to God the Father as  Savior, (Luke 1:47,1 Tim 1:1; Titus 1:3),  but more particularly to Jesus Christ who  came to "save His people from their sins"  (Mathew 1:21). With tender regard the  heavenly messenger quieted their fears,  and told them where to find Him.  Have you wondered why Israel's  leaders were passed by in favor of a group  of sheep herders? Wouldn't the impact  have been immeasurably greater, had the  priests and rabbis been notified of the  Messiah's arrival? Were these unschooled  minds capable of understanding? iBut ah!  God's ways are not our ways. Isaiah 55:8)  We are told that only those .who "hunger  and thirst after righteousness" may expect to be filled (Matthew 5:6). Only those  who seek for Light and Truth will find it  (Matthew 7:7)  Could it be that these simple but devout  men were spending the silent hours of that  night in thoughtful consideration of the  Messlah'as coming, perhaps discussing  the Messianic prophecies of old, even  declaring to one another that the time  must indeed be near. > v  Could it be that the prayer of their  hearts that night, was that they spared to  see the Coming One. These humble  shepherds were apparently among that  small but faithful number, who were  waiting for "the consolation of Israel" and  "looked for redemption In Jerusalem", It  is ever to such persons that heaven imparts Light and Truth.  After the angel delivered his message  there appeared an innumerable throng of  angels praising God and saying "Glory f  Sen. Citizens' Hews  On Monday, December 17, 1979 the  Pender Harbour Senior Citizens, Branch  80, and their, friends held an annual  Christmas dinner. Mrs. Robertson served  her usual excellent dinner.  After the dinner they' had their  Christmas tree and games. Art Bishop and  Jim Morris provided music for singing and  afterward a dance. The Pender Harbour  choir provided several selections of  Christmas songs.  It was a very enjoyable evening.

If angel beings see  fit to ascribe glory and praise, to God, how  much more should we-humans glorify  Him! Notice the message of the song was  GLORY TO GOD .AND PEACE TO  MANKIND.  Could it be that our glory to God has  something to do with our peace! Could it  What is this peace that, heaven^  declared? Peace to men of goodwill it said.  Peace that is attained only when God's will  is "done in earth, as it is in heaven"  (Matthew 6:10); when men and women,  recognizing God's goodwill toward them  allow its effect to be seen in them and .  through them. It's the peace of God and  peace with God, when self-will becomes  be that man, instead of giving God the   God's-will, self-seeking becomes Christ  glory is claiming it for himself; and in       "  denying the rightful One the glory, finds  himself destitute of peace and happiness  within!  Notice in this song of the angels how  T r��tJV>    ao     nn!atfna11ir     halannoH     with  GLORY' is poetically balanced with  'PEACE'; 'GOD' with 'MEN'; and  ���HIGHEST' with 'EARTH'. A ladder, as it  were, between heaven and earth, God and  man! A bridge across the chasm! God on a  rescue mission, endeavoring to reconcile  lost Man to Him, thus bringing peace on  earth and peace within. Mystery of  mysteries, God in human flesh, in the  person of His Son! -  seeking and self-centeredness becomes  Christ-centeredness, when God in the  highest is ascribed ihe glory and man's is  laid in the dust! The song of the heart will  then ever be "Glory,tbGod", never VGlory  to.man".  No wonder, the apostle Paul said "Your  glorying is not good" (1 Cor 5:6) Self glory  is always, uncomfortable in God's  presence, and peace of mind and soul  sacrificed. (Isaiah 26:3) So God's peace is  not a feeling of security that comes from  personal independence and strength.  Rather it is a by-product of being reconciled to God through Christ, for "He is our  Peace" (Epheslans2:14 He is the "Prince  of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).  At this time each year, the world  commemorates the coming of this Prince,  of Peace and we by faith in Him may have  that promised peace in this life (Romans  5:1), and life eternal in the next. (John  3:16).      , ' __     '  . .May the deep and abiding joys of this  joyous season fill your hearts and bring  you every happiness; above all, may the  peace of God which passeth all understanding, keep your hearts and minds,  through Christ Jesus.

Ministry  of Energy, Mines and  Petroleum Resources at an  estimated cost of $200,000.  This modern version of a  vrindmill is a 50kW vertical  axis wind turbine, designed  and supplied by the National  . Research Council and  manufactured by DAF Indal  Ltd. of Ontario. The. power  generated by the prototype^  demonstration wind turbine  will feed in the B.C. Hydro  grid.  The site selected for the  test is Christopher Point,.the  southernmost part of Vancouver     Island.  B.C. Hydro will install the  unit by spring 1980 and will be  responsible for operation,  maintenance, and performance monitoring for a  'period of one year.  The vertical axis wind  turbine rotor measures 17 m  in height and 11 m in  diameter, and resembles a  large inverted egg beater.

DROP-OFF CENTRE IN GIBSONS  By RUTH FORRESTER  When you spent your life as  a wee lass in one of the poorer  working class districts of  Glasgow in Scotland, it was  most unlikely that you ever  had a Christmas tree in your  house. These were only for the  "toffs" who lived in big houses  and had plenty of money. The  nearest approach to the -  festive feeling was the con- l  certina-type decorations  which were strung from  comer to corner from the  ceiling of the living room ���  come bedroom come dining  room.  Santa Claus had been done  away with'by the time you  were five years old. After all  ��� who could possibly explain  that Santa could only bring a  bike to special children, and  that you weren't special! So, it  was realized at a very, early  age that you hung your  stocking up at the foot of your  bed, and in the morning it was  filled  with things  which  "brought utter joy. Always at  the toe of the sock was a  tangerine orange ��� now for  some unknown reason better  known as mandarin oranges.  There would also be a penny  (a small fortune), a wee bag  of sweeties, a pencil case with  a packet of pen nibs in it,  maybe a ball, and usually a  very sensible pair of fleecy-  , lined knickers! There were six  children so they all pretty well  got the same things. But there  was just as much excitement  and joy over these gifts as if  they were the things we had  really wanted. We somehow  understood the struggle it had  been to gather these few  things together.  But the greatest joy of all  was the Dumpling in a hankie.  The whole day was spent in  the making of this wonderful  treat. Only your own Mum  knew how to make this, so I  never did find out the secrets  of it. But it was made up by  mixing all kinds of fruits and  spices together then wrapping  up this beautiful aromatic  brown mess in a great big  white cloth. But during the  mixing of this there were  "trinkets" wrapped up in tiny  Does Your Club or Group Report its Activities Regularly to The Times?  BOX 1490  TRAIL & COWRIE ST.

'I '     *Jr,   \ '��� Vj ^i -> t  little pieces of wax paper.  These were mixed up into the  dumpling. , ���-"/������  The" doth bag was all tied  up with string and then placed  in a huge pot of boiling water  and allowed to simmer for  hours and hours. And oh ��� the:  beautiful .aromas which  permeated the whole house ���  was a joy beyond words. When  the long awaited moment  came for this treasure to be  lifted out of the pot with tongs,  everybody gathered round  with bated breath.  It was always beautiful ���  and I can remember that it  seemed such a miracle mat  the whole thing hadn't burst  and turned out to be just a big  mess of brown stuff. But no. ���  it was a sight to behold. It was  ceremoniously cut into portions ��� depending on the size  of the appetite.. ��� and  devoured with great gusto. Of.  course you had to be specially  careful! while eating it, that  you didn't accidentally  swallow a trinket. These  trinkets were very special  because they all had a very  meaningful significance.  There was a ring. If you got  this it meant of course that  you would get married. A bell  also promised wedded bliss.  There was a tiny glass doll  with black dots for eyes but ntf.  nose or mouth, so it was  presumed that you would wind  up with just such a baby. And  there were thrupenny bits!  The greatest treasures of all.  These were smaller than a  dime and were worth the large  sum of three pennies.  It was generally planned  that there was one of those for  each of us, and somehow it  always worked out that way.  Mothers have some kind of  sense of genius when they can  cause the equal distribution to  always work out. There was  many a broken tooth caused  by the chomping on a trinket.

LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHER at work June Boe.  Local photographer tries  to portray her feelings  By EVI BLUETH  "I try my best to portray my feelings in  photography, to catch the moment in  another person's life, which shows their  truest most positive expression", says  June, Boe local photographer. June  specializes in portrait work. "My aim is to  get away from stiff formal portraits, that  don't convey anything real about the  person", says June. The work displayed in  her home and studio on Marine Drive  shows real sensitivity and imagination.  The skills necessary to do a good portrait  go beyond the camera.  During June's three years of serious  work, she has learned that rapport between her and her subject is just as important as photographic techniques. It is  important she says, "not to convey any  nervousness yourself, because your  subject will pick it up and it will be  reflected back in the picture."  Often June uses conversation as a ploy  to distract her subject from the camera.  She recently acquired a telephoto lens and  now can be further away from her subject  while shooting. She feels it is important to  be learning new ways of reducing the self  consciousness of her subjects during the  photo session.  Video work spurred on June's interest  in the camera. She had been working with  video equipment and was amazed how  much it had to teach people. Being able to  watch yourself on a screen, or look at a  still print would reVeal behaviour that one  would otherwise be unaware of.  Though the choice between art and  photography was difficult, June chose the  camera. She says, "I did want to be involved in acting at one time but since I  never had the courage to do that, I started  to take pictures.  "I was very shy but I would take a  camera wherever I went. Being behind the  camera taking pictures of people was an  'in'for me."  The photo on the cover of the book  "Daughter of the Moon" by Joan Haggerty  was done by June. She also did the photo of  Peter Trower on the back of his book  "Between the Spinters and the Sky".  Vancouver Magazine published a shot of a  logger done by June. The Art Centre in  Sechelt included one of her prints in their  recent exhibit.  Although June's primary interest is in  people, she also plans to do a series on  clouds, night pictures ��� stars and the  ocean. She hopes eventually to put  together a book of local people at their  work ��� boom men, fishermen, people in  the forest. Activities that would convey the  spirit of the west coast are of great interest  to her. June says, "At first I thought I  would have to go somewhere else to get a  story but it's all around here. v, but when  you live in one place it's very hard to see it.  You have to go away and come back."  June admires the work of Man Ray,  Imogen Cunningham and Edward Curtis.  Photographers who are able to enjoy their  work and at the same time be serious  about it are few and far between according  to June.  Accumulating expensive equipment is  not one of June's goals. She works with a 35  mm lens and likes, to see how far she can  go without the use of extra lenses. All her  equipment is improvised yet adequate.  She generally takes 50 pictures within an  ~ hour during &.pi).rtr^j5e��^n. ..  ..,:% ,  One of June's.future projects is the  designing of photos to be blown up for use  on wall paper. She also wants her work to  convey a full spectrum of emotions and  situations, not just peace and calm. The  main difficulty for June working out here,  is the lack of resource people to turn to  when a problem arises. Otherwise she  says, "the softness of the coast, the grey  days and the great variety of characters  are truly inspirational."

(But read Capricorn message for  minor unfavorable hours.)  mn  ��*0MMN**#MW����M0W����**����HAMP  PRICE SALE  of ALL BOXED  CHRISTMAS CARDS  & WRAP "?

A Sagittarian  Mercury shows a flurry of invitations all  week (though some will cancel out Sunday). Parties are apt-to be large ��� with  some unexpected guests thrown in! New  Year's Day everyone will look forward to  the future, but the past will be whispering  that it is responsible for future luck. Many  should heed this hint, analyze past actions  and their results. Cancers'.will be wearing  funny little smiles of happiness, and  Virgos will be saying: "I've left my past  behind! ��� Or have I?  ARIES (March 21 - April 20) ��� You are  likely to be handling past matters on the  job during .the weeks ahead, Aries.  Jumping ahead or trying fora juicy travel  assignment ia not advised right now. Increasing or firming up the personal  foundations of your life will let you expand  later. As theweelc ends,, all that "firming  up" you've done can lead to doubled  success 1  TAURUS (April 21 -May 21) - Rest  until Thursday night, Taurus, then accent  inventiveness and communication in  partnerships. People faraway (or not born  in Canada) can give you the nod for success! Romance is important���and lovely,  if yott avoid thinking people owe you for  past favors. Con't be bitter because you  think^you've thrown money away on  someone recently ��� Tuesday will "cure"  everything!  GEMINI (May 22 - June 21 ��� There is a  need to "gather things up" this week,  Gemini. You may become involved with a  nebulous, entrancing person early week,  but your attempts to further this can  frustrate by Sunday night. Best to collect  ��� draw past friends to you, finish old  chores, dig deep into what began earlier ���  especially in home, real estate affairs. An  unexpected discovery awaits you!  CANCER (June 22 - July 23) ��� A period  of "backtracking" in work affairs, details,  trying to communicate, begins now,  Cancer. Your hopes about fulfillment are  justified, but this is not quite the time to  launch .anything "new." A "secret" tip  about work, or about "greener fields"  early week, is a ,false one.-Partnership  matters are going to' improve ��� very  soon! Lie low this weekend.  LEO (July 24 - August 23) - Though  you have a lot of work to do, Leo, this week  is also a time of love and many sweet  - conversations, especially at the beginning ';  and end! Let no one disrupt your. home.  Money affairs are very important also ���  what^ou start Wednesday or Thursday  can climax next Tuesday. A raise, bonus,  big purchase or splended agreement are  among the possibilities!  VIRGQ (August 24 - September 23) ���  You're On the bandwagon of luck this  week, Virgo, though you may not think so  until you reach your destination at the end  of a rocky ride! Some will break off with  old lovers or creative money projects this  week and head for sunnier climes. Some  move out, to a new residence across  town. Make sure you're not fooling  yourself Wednesday ��� and good luck!  LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) -  Love (and art) really have your attention  this week, Libra! Make sure your home is  spiffy for guests, your dress calculated to  impress! Don't worry if Sunday brings a  past problem back, or whispers that a New  Year's party might fail ��� it won't! Know  that others will be speaking of you next  Tuesday���so make sure the "report" is a  good one!  SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22)  ��� Communications are very important  this week ��� watch that a concentration on  "shoptalk" doesn't make you exclude  loved ones and the "deeper messages"  they deserve! Thursday and Friday your  hunches tell you exactly who to address for  lucky agreements, but Sunday's "money  talk" is dismal. The end of the astro-week  brings final success ��� you'll be elated!  SAGITTARIUS (November 23 -  December 21) ��� Career matters  "backtrack" this week, probably because  love, romance and the holiday spirit pull  you to other places! Know, though, that  you have duties Friday and Saturday,  don't neglect them. You may be praised  for past efforts now. The end of the week  (and early next) are bringing a money-  studded opportunity ��� analyse it well!  CAPRICORN (December 22 - January  .$) ���-:.^  Capricorn, so push ahead, further projects  and seek recognition! You're very inventive Thursday through Saturday,  especially If rearranging past matters.  Advice you heard long ago gives you an  edge in romantic matters tool Talk is  "unlucky" Sunday though. New Year's  Day brings an answer from far away!  AQUARIUS (January �����- February 19)  ��� A week for "quiet love" Aquarius,  especially this weekend. If not Involved*  find a hobby, or delve deeply into job  matters, study past arrangements for  possible improvements. Get ready to set  your life in order for 1080. Either finish or  abandon projects that hove outlived their  importance. An Important, message  relates to your "secret" life ��� a break, a  mend!  PISCES (February 20 - March 20) ���  Partnership matters, Including marriage,  engagements, seem to backtrack, demand  bring success, and July a triumph! Your  popularity la very high, and hopes and  dreams soar Friday, Saturday and New  Year's Day ��� seek friends. Sunday, a  loved' one is upset. Be gentle, protect'  "image" that day. '  January 2 - 8th, 1980  ALL SIGNS - It would be hard to find a  week more suited to those who wish inspiration and vigor. Lovers should seek, if.  they wish to be found. Marrieds should  reaffirm'their love. The government and  )arge institutions will proclaim reliable  programs in employment and .foreign,  trade matters. Businessmen have an  excellent opportunity to analyse and  organize . . . And yet, I hesitate to say  "look forward without looking back."  SaMrn and Jupiter say we somehow will  have to re-arrange past decisions, work  steadily and carefully. Bankers may lower  interest rates now. Virgo, Sagittarius,  Capricorn and Pisces especially should  "look back."  ARIES (March 21 -April 20) ���Don't let  home matters interfere with your work  rep Wednesday, when early zest can turn  to a nightime NO! Thursday, Friday, a  special sweet person will "talk shop."  Saturday love soars, putting you in a super  mood Sunday to tackle those chores (or a  letter to the boss). Monday's work is done  in a flash, if you ignore wrong ideas. Take  Tuesday's good news home to mate!      ���  TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) - Pay  attention to all ideas coming from far  away, via phone, letter or book this week,  Taurus. Some, early week, can be surprised by their media or distribution  success! Love (and work on creative  projects) seems to be repeating itself,  slowing you down. The root of the problem  can be a need to choose between two; the  old and the new. Tuesday's idea is a real  winner!  GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) ��� Money  matters climax early, week, in a lucky  way! Start nothing new until Sunday,  though. Your detective hunches are on  target (except Monday night). Delving  deep, into the occult, family history,  'finances, taxes ��� all these lead to success  ': now. Your home, family are an important  'ingredient in success. Tuesday make a  date, and flirt until very late!  CANCER (June 22 - July 23) ��� How you  relate to others is very important Wednesday, Cancer. If you've been trying to  get an agreement or a date, a job or a  mate, apply this day; but early rather  than late! The rest of the week you advance in high style, but those involved in  Yithe media or transportation should  ^prepare themselves for. a< slowdown.  Tuesday is for messages, good  agreements and secret satisfaction!  LEO (July 24 - August 23) ��� Your vigor  is low until Thursday noon, Leo, so rest,  recharge your batteries. Then, go forth  and impress ��� love and marriage are  blessed! It's important to make points in  work matters before , Sunday, as the  months ahead can bring a slowdown in  money and occupational affairs. Collect  past debts, save all you can now. Tuesday  can bring a money reward, and friends are  romantic!  VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) - If  you've had trouble talking about a  romantic dream, that trouble is through ���  in writing, speaking or intimacy, let others  see the new you! (Though Thursday,  Friday and Saturday are best for rest or  preparing to emerge ��� love is "secretly  sweet" these days.) If you're a creative  worker or financial speculator, this week  is your best ��� especially Tuesday!  '"' LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) -  Avoid tension Wednesday, Libra, turn  early energy to making poinds with the big  bosses!- You have excellent, creative  money ideas Thursday ��� spend Friday,  and Saturday mingling with people who  can help you put them in action. Caution  advised Saturday noon, though. Rest He  low until Tuesday noon, then expect a  "Yes" to any reasonable request! Make  vital moves.  SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22)  ��� When you contact anyone this week,  Scorpio, be sure to add that extra note of  hopefulness which can persuade. You are  due to get some very good answers to your  "dreams" now. Be relaxed Saturday noon,  don't let a minor surprise Interfere with  the "success" you've been cultivating with  a higher-up I Monday can bring  disillusionment,���but Tuesday's secret  message cures it.  SAGITTARIUS (November 23 -  December 21) ��� Study Leo message, Sag.  Collect debts, and put all the money you '  can In the bank, especially before the  weekend. In job or career, you may be  returning to former circumstances soon,  but Jupiter says tWs will be better rather  than worse! Saturday a publishing or  "long distance" factor can not only raise  your hopes, but your achievement too!  CAPRICORN (December 22 - January  20) ��� Wednesday night, Saturday noon  nnd Monday suppertlmo ��� avoid,  respectively, a bid for status, deserting  , love or study for frienofl, ^d 8 bit of  gossip, Other than these times, you can  hardly fall to impress! Creativity boosts  career and money. Writing, reading, attending lectures (preferably as a  "twosome") ~- all help future prospects,,   'You "may gcfpiubM'edT'   AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 10)  ���You should deal with past matters, start  nothing new but clean up old business in  preparation   for   a   late    January  FOR  PRECISION  SHARPENING  ON ALL  SKATES  %.&eir.e4.6KuU  Christmas  inn ttritij fop!
