The federal election is on, but were the  local organizers for the three major  parties prepared for a winter contest?  { A check with party organizers showed  the only party which was in fighting form  was the NDP. But according to the  Progressive Conservative Comox-Powell  River president; Harry Harris, his party is  Quickly organizing itself to defeat NDP  incumbent Ray Skelly.  And while the Conservatives and NDP  are preparing to lock horns in the election  battle, it appears the local Liberal  establishment was completely caught off  guard.  A phone call to B.C. Liberal  headquarters by the Times proved  completely fruitless, as they had no updated contacts for the Comox-Powell  River Liberal Association.  One local Sechelt Liberal worker, Joe.

Citizens Associksion^ckfid her upon  Harrison concerned over SCRD's ORP  First reading of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District's Official Regional Plan  bylaw is scheduled this Thursday, but  Director Joe Harrison is already concerned about the implications of such a  move.  "I'm afraid we will be adoptingjhfc  bylaw without it going out to thenpublicfor  input," Harrison said.  He acknowledged that after first  reading it will go to a public hearing, but  said it should go to a public meeting first,  then to a public hearing.  What has Harrison puzzled is the inclusion of the repealing of the Sechelt and  Gibsons' Vicinity Plan along with the  bylaw.  "This was a low priority item and I've  never heard of them being tied together  before," Harrison said.  He added he felt the regional plan was  not ready to go to bylaw.  "It has too many gaps which have to be  filled before it goes to a public hearing,"  he said.  However, SCRD planner Bill Lindsay  says he does not expect too much controversy with the new plan.  "I don't think it is very controversial,  but I guess wo will have to wait and see  what the public and board think of it,"  Lindsay said.  Tho planner pointed out the reason they  were rescinding the vicinity plan was it  was too specific in Sechelt's case.  "If we don't rescind it, we feel we are  going to have too many plans which would  conflict with each other," he said.  ."Last Fall we had several complaints  from the Village of Sechelt that the  Vicinity plan was too specific so it was our  intention to be more general in the Off idal  Regional plan:  "This will allow Sechelt to do what it  wants - it will relinquish some of the  district's power to the Village and in my  opinion that is where it belongs," Lindsay  added.  The Village of Sechelt found out last  summer when it tried to change  its  Community Plan.to allow Service Industrial in a portion of the Village that it  could not proceed because the zoning  change conflicted with the SCRD Vicinity  Plan.  If SCRD rescinds the vicinity plan it  will allow the Village to proceed with its  plans. ,        "'���'������:,.=;..���������..  However, Lindsay said he has been  working on the plan all Fall and the reason  dt was being brought forward at this time  was because his department has finished  the draft.  Lindsay also said the plan would not  relinquish SCRD's responsibility in zoning  conflicts that have a regional implication.  BeauWication for Gibsons  The possibility of a new provincial  grant to renovate downtown cores has,  resulted in the establishment of the Gibsons Landing Beautificatlon Society,  At a Gibsons Village Planning committee meeting December 10, the com-  mltt*^ agreed to nominate planner Rob  E .an to represent council in the society  and work with it in formulating policies  and developing an approach to the  renovation of Lower Gibsons.  Gary Puckett, who recently Informed  council of the proposed legislation making  funds available for renovating downtown  Despite rollback - gas still high  While Sunshine Coast residents attempted to absorb the shock of an on and  off 18 cohtfl increafle per gpUoh of gas, the  Times checked into the average price of  gas at 10 peninsula gas stations to up-date  a February survey.  Since February, not only have prices  increased, but premium leaded gas hos  disappeared, replaced by premium  unleaded gas and we now are paying per  litre instead of per gallon.  The people whoso cars were operating  on regular gas were paying 07.0 cents por  gallon or 21.00 cents per litre. Today it  costs them $1.14 per gallon or 25.18 per  litre to fill up at the pumps.  Unleaded gas was selling at $1.02 per  gallon or 22.47 por litre in February. Today  the driver is paying 18.70 cents per gallon  more or 20.6 cents per litre.  Of 10 service stations surveyed, only  four aro selling premium unleaded gas.  There are no statistics for February with  which to comparo the price of premium  unleaded ,** but today those who raw it wn~  paying $1.25 per gallon or 27.53 cental per  litre.  Prices for premium unleaded gas  range from 28.0 centa per litre to 27.9 cents  per litre, The consumer can save ap-  k  proximately 4.5 cents per gallon by filling  up at the Secholt Shell service station or  '2.2 cents per gallon at the Edgewater Auto  Service (Esso) in Gibsons,  A gas station in, Vancouver, chosen  randomly, is charging 22.4 cents per litre  for regular (fl.02 per gallon) and 23.4  cents per litre for unleaded ($1.00 per  gallon).  Merry Christmas, everybody.  cores, recommended a design concept  freeze for all properties bounded by  Marine Drive. .   '  These Include properties from Jack's  Lane through Gower Point Rd. to Winn Rd.  The society's immediate concern Is  development taking place before a  development theme for the area Is  decided.  Puckett gave the planning committee a  number of suggestions on how the grant  could be used.  These included; erecting a "Welcome  to Old Gibsons Landing" pole; building a'  mixture ot boardwalks from brick to  board; considering the acquisition of fhe  Langdale Queen to act as breakwater  protection to the north face of tho federal  wharf; installing a gate and warning  beacons at the federal wharf approach  which would be used when fuel carr|ers  are unloading.  Also suggested was changing to underground wiring and erecting ornamental light standards; relocating tho  Chamber of Commerce kiosk to Pioneer  Park and upgrading the park landscaping,  reopening the washrooms and Installing a  new flag polo with flag and more.  Proposed SCRD enquiry losing steam  It appears the Sunshine Coast Regional  District's enquiry into the 500 kv B.C.  Hydro line la running out of energy. "'"  With other a month gone by since tho  Invitations were sent out to attend the  meeting, there have been no firm commitments from anyone who was asked to  attend.  And according to Director Joe  Harrison, they havo received one refusal  from Norman Glsh ot the B.C. Energy   Qmmmmr~"~~~~ ������ - m-  "We might have to explore Section 182  where the real meat Is (section 182 of tho  municipal act allows SCRD to subpoena  witnesses)," Harrison said.  ''It la beginning to look as if there Isn't  \  any enthusiasm for those Invited to como  on their own. Any voluntary attendance  seems doubtful."  Harrison, said the problem with Invoking Section 182 Is a financial one, but  added If the board does not go through with  a successful enquiry It would be tho public  which "would suffer,"  SCRD had Invited tho Ministers of  Energy, Environment, Hydro Chairman  Robert Bonner, aa well ns uereral ��there to  tho enquiry^,. ..,.���,��� .*���.,...���.,......,�����,  Meanwhile, tho Environment and Land  Use committee is set to go ahead with Its  public meeting at Madeira Park on  January 10.  The Christmas season s~a time for  partying and unfortunately, for some  party-goers that "one for the road" is  still a way of, life.  Gibsons RCMP staff-sergeant D.N.  McDermid told the Times last week the  detachment will be increasing its  roadside checks of motorists in an  effort "to deter those who might have  had a few drinks too many."  "About all you can do is try to  bolster your manpower for the period  you expect more drivers and parties ���  on weekends and just prior to Christmas," MCDermid said.  , Besides adjusting shifts to have  more officers working at peak times in  the evening, auxiliary policemen will  be out in force.  "I don't think there is anything new  to be said about drinking and driving,  nothing that hasn't been said before,"  McDermid said.  i    "Unfortunately, youhave to keep  bringing it up yejur after year."  The local RCMP detachments'  efforts to deter drinking drivers are  assisted by blanket media advertising  by the Attorney General's department  of its Drinking Driving Counter Attack  program and by ICBC.  Sechelt St. Sgt. Robert Evans said  the Sechelt detachment increased its  roadside checks as of last weekend and  the Batmobile is in the district this  week to further deter drinking and  driving.  Though there is only a taxi service  available for those who need a ride  home, McDermid said various  organizations are arranging transportation to 7 and from their own  Christmas fatnetions to lessen the  number of drinking drivers.  What can a drinking driver expect if  he is stopped? Don't think because it is  the joyous season you'll get off lightly  with a roadside suspension. 7 -  "The situation would indicate  whether it warrants a roadside  suspension or whether it warrants a  criminal charge," McDermid said.  "If there are more roadside  suspensions given, it's because more  vehicles are checked at this time of  year."  A driver convicted of impaired  driving can face a fine of up to $2,000  and-or six months in jail and an  automatic three to six month  suspension from driving.  "I sometimes wonder if those people  who needk4the message ever get #he  message," McDermid said.        /     ,  "They don't seem to realize thaVnofc'  only are they likely to cause haftn to  themselves, but they are likely to cause  harm to others."  Skelly opens round  with a blast at Clark  Comox-Powell River NDP MP Ray  Skelly is ready and prepared to fight the  upcoming federal election on the issues  and expects his party to do even better this  time around.  Skelly came out shooting at Prime  Minister Joe Clark, telling the Times,  "this election has been coming for quite a  while and while the budget might have  been the acute cause for defeating the  government it was^ Clark's attitude  towards the opposition that really did it."  "Because Clark decided to rule us like  he had a majority government, he didn't  give the opposition a chance - there was no  conciliation present," Skelly said.  Skelly also predicted tho NDP would do  much better this time saying, "Clark  wasn't elected the last time around -  Trudeau was thrown out. That hurt us, but  this time it should be different."  He expects the NDP to hold onto the  seats they got last time and pick up a few  more, particularly in Ontario.  Skelly added the NDP and Liberals, by  defeating the government, saved  Canadians $400 million in gas tax alone for  next year.  Who does he think his opponents will be  this time around?  "Al Lazerte has had two shots at it for  the Conservatives and I wouldn't expect  him to try a third time, but I would be  pleesed to see him back in the race,"  Skelly said.  Skelly, who was on the Sunshine Coast  last week, meeting with party workers and  setting up election strategy, expects to be  back some time this week.  Benner, told the Times he phoned the  Liberal headquarters to see what could be  done, but was told to "hang tight."  Comox-Powell River Liberal president  Harold Lockwobd's phone number was  disconnected, so the Times was unable to  get any comment from him.  MP Skelly seemed to be in the best shape,  having just finished an organizational trip  through his riding with MLA Don  Lockstead.  "We have an excellent organization  and a good work force throughout the  riding," Skelly said.  "We were expecting this to come for  some time now and as a result we were  ���getting ready."  Skelly expects some problems with  getting his,people out canvassing during  the winter months and says his party will  have to depend on the national media in  snowbound areas such as the prairies to  get its message out.  Harris, on the other hand, was caught  unaware, but within two days of the  election call, his party had two emergency  meetings setting up nomination meetings  for January in Powell River, Comox and  Courtenay.  Still, Harris is fairly confident a strong  Progressive Conservative candidate could  upset Skelly.  "We got 17,000 votes last time around  ' with Al Lazerte and we feel we can do even  better this time around," Harris said.  Although Harris said nominations were  open to anyone ��� he didn't rule out the  possibility of Al Lazerte seeking the  nomination for a third time.  "The treasurer and myself are going up  to speak to Lazerte today (Saturday) to  find out what his intentions are," Harris  said.  However, when the Times contacted  Lazerte, he said he would like another try,  but his law partners didn't like the idea.  "I -haven't made up my mind yet and  atthtfughM'tcHfld IftrvEryTrnUCh^to-Tun"-  again, my law partners are not very happy  about the prospect," Lazerte said.  "I guess I will have to sit down and talk  it over with them and decide sometime  before the nomination meeting."  Meanwhile, Harris said he is hoping  several people will seek the nomination.  He also did not rule out the possibility of  a fourth nomination meeting to be held in  the Sechelt area, but added the 20 or so  card carrying members in Sechelt would  have to want it.  "Our organization in the Sechelt area  isn't that strong, but it is up to the local  people in Sechelt to decide whether they  want a nomination meeting," Harris said.  "Otherwise they will have to make  their way up to Powell River on January 11  if they want to pick their candidate."  Although Harris was pleased with the  number of votes his party got in this riding  last May, he did express concern over the  small number of Conservative workers In  the riding.  "400 isn't very many and we will be  looking for new members to help out in this  coming election," Harris said.  Anyone buying a membership up to  three days before the nomination meeting  can vote; anyone taking out a membership  in the party on the nomination day can  run.  The results of last election In Comox-  Powell River were; Skelly 22,178: Lazerte  17,538: Jack Pearsall (Liberal) 9,915 and  Communist candidate Slg Pederson with  313.

Once tho rain stopped later in the day, the lake seemed to dry up.  I ' y<_<> *A4A  The Peninsula Times  Wedneday, December 19.1979  "WHAT SOME people won't do to get  into the Peninsula Times office,"  Times manager Harvie McCracken  (left) tells Times editor Bill Bell as  they both survey the new entrance to  the office kicked in by thieves last  Saturday night. It was the third time  this year that the office has been  broken into and approximately $300  worth of equipment was stolen this  time around which is not all that  amusing.  Koch new Chamber Pres.  ' Bud Koch, owner of Sunshine Motors  was acclaimed president of the Sechelt,  and  District  Chamber  of  Commerce, V  while Homer Glass will remain on as vice-  president.  Koch did not take long to show he  meant business this year, as he outlined to  the general meeting several proposals  which he hoped Would help out the tourist  industry on the Coast.  Leading the list was a "Bed and Breakfast" program modelled after the British  system.  Koch described this as adding a new  dimension to the Sechelt tourist area and  added that he did not think it would hurt  the present commercial accommodation  establishment.  "What better way for a tourist to get to  know what the people on the Sechelt  Peninsula are really like than to stay the  night in our homes," Koch pointed out.  Although details of the program have  not been worked out, Koch expects the  Chamber run tourist bureau to take  listings of residents who would be willing  to rent out a bed and serve breakfast to  tourists at a set fee. These listings, wotdd  thembe made availablg^o^ourists.  "this would-give"9ie local residents a  chah��\ to make some extra money as  weft^nKoch added.  In other commerce business, the  chamber reported a very successful car  raffle vtfhicn brought their total revenue  above the jfeiOOO mark.  The Chamber also decided to write a  letter to the Motor, Carriers Commission  saying taxi serviqe on the Coast was  inadequate, but it was not prepared to  support any one of the current applications  for licenses.  A request for a donation by the Elves  Club was turned down by the chamber  because it was not its policy to give out  donations.  Directors for the upcoming year were  also picked. These include: Stan Anderson, Jim Downs, Bill Forman, Bill  Wong, Dick Proctor, Peter Bandi, June  Bernauer, Jack Hawkins, Cliff Lindsay  and Margaret Montgomery.  6  1  1 ,   .2  5  3  4  4  2  5  9  6  7  7  3  o  12  9  13  10  10  1)  a  12  16  13  17  14  II  15  19  16  in  17  20  in  14  19  22  20  24  21  26  22  '19  23  27  24  21  75  26  30  27  ,29  2H  ~7T  ..���  JO  PopMu��lk   Heartache Tonight .

Hot potato on the highway  Do you know how much gasoline we use  each year? About 8 billion gallons ��� that's  over 400 gallons for each man, woman and  child in Canada.  Ideally, we should all be driving cars  that give at least 50 m.p.g. However, the  reality is that most cars get substantially  less. But there are ways (as simple as  taking yotir foot off the brake) to improve  your car's mileage.  Driving habits are a very hot potato.  Not many of us will concede that we drive  less than superbly. But, if we are right,  who are all those people that make tires  screech, drive above speed limits, tailgate other drivers to make them go faster,  keep changing speed for no particular  reason, switch from lane to lane to gain a  few inches, and generally enrage other  road users, waste gas with their wild  antics, and cause our highways to be  needlessly unsafe.     ,  If we are being honest/we have to  admit that it wouldn't hurt any of us to  keep a closer watch on our driving habits.

This book covers practically every  aspect of car selection, care and use, but  not the least of its many virtues are the 18  tips about saving gas while  driving.  Anyone abiding by these 18 points can save  up to 10 per cent on fuel, and not only that,  but they will stand a better chance of  arriving at the other end in one piece.  One of the basic techniques of energy  efficient driving is keeping an even  pressure on the accelerator which saves  energy by reducing breaking to a  minimum. This applies whether you're  going up or down hill, providing, of course,  that you keep within the speed limit and  have the car under control. Avoid energy  wasting, sudden jack-rabbit starts, anticipate situations that are developing  ahead, and keep bursts of speed only for  emergencies.  A bad habit that many fall into is to rest  a foot on the brake pedal. This continual,  partial use of the brake is not only hard on  the car and boosts fuel consumption, but it  keeps the brake lights on and confuses  other drivers.  Another fuel waster is excessive idling..  You can save gas and wear-and-tear on the,  engine by switching it off, (statistics show  that after about % minute of idling, you'll^  save by .turning the motor off)..        s, io 4  Warraing^up< the engine longer thany  necessary is another fuel waster; just let it  warm up lqng enough to reach full firing-so'  you can drive away without stalling. An  engine will warm up faster while driving.  That is why it can be an expensive  proposition to make a lot of short trips with  cooling-off periods between. Combine  those short trips into one long one.

Who is to blame for this midwinter  madness called a federal election?  Prime Minister Joe Clark or the  opposition?  We think part of the blame should  be placed on the shoulders of Mr.  Clark and his government.  Yes it was the Liberals and NDP  who voted against the budget and  therefore threw the country into an  election, but does anyone really think  the Liberals and NDP wanted an  election at this time?  The NDP who at the best of times  have very little money in the coffers  have not had any time to restore the  bank roll it takes to fight a federal  election. The Liberals, although going  into the election behind Pierre  Trudeau, would rather have waited  until they got a new leader in May.  Then why did they vote against the  government?  Because Mr. Clark decided he  would run the government as if he had  a majority when in fact he had a  minority government.  Nobody in their right minds wants  a winter election, but to blame the  opposition members would be falling  into a trap cleverly set up by the  Progressive Conservative government.  By acting as if his government was  a majority with little attempt at  political compromise, Mr. Clark  forced the hands of the Liberal, NDP  and the Social Credit parties. By  doing so he made it tough for the  opposition to do anything but vote  against the budget and thus throw the  country into a winter election.  Mr. Clark's, actions we suspect  were an attempt to rouse the wrath of  the voting public against the opposition and thus return the Conservatives with a majority government.  So far in the other media, his plan  seems to. have worked as the  editorials condemning the opposition  for its action in defeating the  government have been, many.  Hopefully, the voting public will  not fall for the ruse and will vote for  the party of their choice on the issues,  not against the opposition because  thef "forced an election."  While we are on the subject  And while we are on the subject of  the Federal budget which was  defeated, we would like to say that we  agree with the concern expressed by  the opposition over the gas price  increases, but not necessarily for the  reasons they gave in defeating it.  Canadians are going to have to  face much higher gas prices in the  near future, not because our gas is  going to cost that much more to  produce or for the sole reason of  conservation which was the Conservatives rationale for raising the  price.  ,, Any increase in the gas tax must  be accompanied by a comprehensive  energy plan. This would allow the  increased revenue brought about by  the extra gas tax to be used in finding  energy alternatives, rather than  putting a large portion of it back into  general revenue.  As well as the money going  towards research in solar and other  alternative means of energy, we  would suggest a large portion of the  revenues be used for upgrading  public transit systems in the larger  and smaller communities of the  country.  By raising the gas prices in the  hope that people will use less petrol,  without offering alternative means  of transportation is a ridiculous  proposition.  We would also suggest that in  areas such as the Sunshine Coast  where there is no reliable means of  public transportation and where the  price of gasoline is generally higher ,  than in the larger towns ���some type  of tax rebate must be made available  if the price is to continue to rise.  In general we would agree with the  Tories that a tough budget at this time  is needed and in some regards their  budget was tough. But a fair budget  was*also needed and that is where  Finance Minister John Crosbie let the  people of Canada down.  A Christmas reminder  You have probably heard this  many times before, but we think it  worth one more warning because at  Christmas time the temptation to  have a few drinks and then drive is  great.        <C  We feel it is a good thing that the  RCMP will be out in full force over the  Christmas Holidays ��� it acts as a  strong deterent, but we still feel it is a  shame people are still willing to risk  not only their own lives but others by  drinking and driving.  We know the taxi service on the  Coast is less than adequate and  because of the distance between the  communities it is difficult to get  around without driving.  However, those excuses will not  stand up in a court of law, nor will  those excuses be any comfort if you  should smash your car up.  So this Christmas season be sure to  have a merry and safe one ��� "If you  drink don't drive."  The importance of being earnest  We cannot seem to emphasize  enough the importance of communication in a community or the  Importance of a newspaper as the  vehicle.  We try to get both sides of the story  and though we may be overly-  expectant, we feel others should be  willing to help us by answering our  questions and clearing up any  misapprehensions.  Unfortunately, we have found the  chairman of the St. Mary's Hospital  Board of Trustees has gone out of his  way to avoid answering questions on  the current situation at the hospital.

Non-Commital at the best of times,  Hall refused Sunday to give even a  simple yes or no answer to the  question whether the board had yet  received Dr. Lawrence Ranta's  report on the inquiry into St. Mary's  Hospital^ staff morale problem.  On Sunday, Hall says, his phone is  reserved for his friends, his time for  his family. He tells us he Is available 9  a.m, to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday at his  place of employment.  Granted, Hall is a volunteer. But  he is a volunteer for a public institution. We feel Hall should be  prepared to answer any questions,  especially regarding something as  important as the operation of a  hospital, any reasonable time. We  call on Sunday because it seems to be  the best time to reach him and, more  important, lt is the job of a responsible newspaper to get the most  recent update before publication.

The writers of this statement suggest,  that much more needs to be known of  Vancouver Island's potential for meeting  its own energy-growth needs through co-  generation, alternate (soft) technologies,  utilization of waste forest products and  strong conservation measures before  endorsing, or opposing, a pipeline proposal  for bringing natural gas to this general  area.  Declared needs'for more energy should  have to be justified by site-specific inspections. The possibility of getting cheap  subsidized power delivered negates any  incentive to self-reliance in the industrial  sector. In households, prefered rate-  structures have rewarded heavy users and  discouraged conservation.  Therefore, to endorse, or reject,  without benefit of pertinent information,  any major expenditure to transport  energy great distances, to meet what  might be artificially induced needs, is like  ordering medication before examining the  patient.  Pipelines and powerlines do not  generate a single iota of energy although  their economic-environmental impact is  heavy. It is imperative to know what  results the money for this proposed  transmission line expenditure could get if  reallocated to stimulating energy  production from recurring sources which  may exist much closer to the place of need,  before making any major decision of this  magnitude.  We feel this is a reasonable request.  Karl Rising-Moore  From The First Step Alliance  Powell River, B.C.  A fine line  _c  _-_*_-  crisis r  ��� by Bruce Robinson  Less than a month ago Norad came  within thirty seconds of notifying Jimmy  Carter than an offensive nuclear missile-  had been launched against the United  States. If Carter had been given this information, he would have had to decide  whether to retaliate or hold back. The  Norad scare turned out to be a false alarm,  a malfunction of their early warning  system. What follows is just one of the  conversations which ensued as a result of  this near disaster.  Norad Official: Operator, get me the  White House .. . Hello, White House? Ah  yeah, can I talk to Secretary of State,  Kissinger, please? . . . he's not there  anymore? What happened?

Operator: I'll re-connect you sir, but  ypu'll have to drop three more quarters in  the pay phone.  Norad Official: Truth is, operator, I'm  a little short of quarters. I hadn't planned  on using tho pay phone outside, but things  are a little hectic in the building right now.  Can I just owe you this one, operator?  Hello . . . hello? Norad Official, having  returned with quarters: Operator, get me  the White House, please. White House?  Right, Bill Bimble here, from Norad.  What's that? .. .No as far as I know we're  not catering your banquet tonight. Actually, Norad has more to do with air  defence. I wanted to talk to the Secretary  of State about a security matter.

Secretary of State's Secretary's  Secretary: What is this in regard to, Mr.  Bimbo?  Norad Official: I need permission to  blow up Russia.  Secretary of State's Secretary's  Secretary; I'll put you through to Mr.  Vance's secretary, Mr. Bimbo and you can  make an appointment.  Secretary of State's Secretary:  .Secretary Vance's office.

Comment by  ...Ray Skelly  Let us look at the December 11 federal  budget ��� the first for the Clark government ��� in terms of the whole economy  which this financial blueprint is attempting, to affect.  First of aU, the worst which economists  have been, expecting has not yet  materialized. The Canadian economy as a  whole rebounded in the third quarter of  this year and the nation's output of goods  and services increased by 5.2 percent,  . largely as a result of an increase in consumer spending and some improvements  in foreign exports.  This means that we have not had a  recession   because   the   established  .economists define a recession as two  consecutive quarters of declining output.  That pinch of good news is offset with  some grim economic forecasts. For  example, the U.S. steel and automobtte  industries are beginning major layoffs  which wiU seriously affect economic  growth south of the border. This wiU have  its affects in Canada, particularly with a  federal government which slavishly  foUows trends set in the States and is more  anxious to fight inflation than unemployment. We have already seen this twice  since the Clark government came into  office when the government aUowed Bank  of Canada interest rates to rise to record  high with consequent disastrous effects on  capital spending and employment.  For British Columbians, the high interest rate policy from Ottawa and cutbacks in employment in the States is a  deadly combination. It has already had  serious effects on the plywood and veneer  market and, according to an IWA official I  spoke with last week, the cutbacks in the  plywood industry are only beginning with  a drop in the cut lumber soon to start.  Curtailments in house building in the U.S.  and in British Columbia itself suggest that  the coming year will be hard for all British  Columbians who are affected directly or  indirectly by the sale of lumber which is to  say most of us.  MeanwhUe, serious disparities between  corporate profit and wages do not suggest  that the next 12 months will be peaceful in  the arena of labour-management  relations. Pre-tax corporation profits  increased at an annual rate of 50 percent in  the third quarter of this year. As a result,  the corporate share of gross income in the  Canadian economy reached its highest  level in five years. The growth of labour's  share of the Gross National Product  reached a five year low.  Two other economic factors should be  thrown into the analysis of the December  11 budget: one is that economists are  predicting that the U.S. economy wiU show  no real growth in the next 12 months and  'the"second is that, based" On'early pre-  Christmas spending statistics, the slight  increase in the consumer buying rate  shown in the third quarter of this year is  not likely to continue.  Thanks and  a merry Xmas  Editor, The Times:  Christian Society, Sechelt, is now an  official branch of The First Church of  Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts,  and it is therefore a special pleasure to  thank you for your kind and courteous  cooperation during 1979.

News and Views  A funny thing  . . .  y ' *  oy Helen Parker  Rod and Gun Club report  Wednesday, December 19,1979  The Peninsula Times  PageA-5  ��*��*��*��*��s��*��*sse��*��^����*��i��*��*��  ��  - A funny thing happened before our  paper was published last week. An inter-  service newsletter went out to the  homemakers in an attempt to explain the  purpose of our story on the homemakers.  Suffering from a certain amount of  confidence in my competence ��� obviously  some people think it's misplaced ��� I was .  under the Impression the story would  explain itself.  Anyway, there were a few  discrepancies in the newsletter which I  would like to clear up myself since the,  homemakers feel the story has resulted in  some action and now, as before, wish to  work it out themselves.'  The newsletter says "several  homemakers have complained to the  Thanks for help  As entertainment director for the club  over the past two years, I would like to say  thank you for your support.  To the members that helped out with  our banquets, a very special thank you.  Our game banquet would have gone down  the tubes this year had it not been for the  same people donating meat. What ever  happened to the other members?  Thank you to BUI Boyte, Len Clarke,  Joe Mellis, Derick and Mr. Nelson, Bob  Janis, Mr. and Mrs. Bannerman, Jamie  Stevens and Ron Watts, who is not even a  member of our club. If I have missed  anyone I am sorry.  Thank you to Mrs. Bea Rankin for the  job she and her husband BUI have done  over the past years, and for the help they  gave me. Last but not least, thank you to  Paula Rowland for the beautiful job she  did on the center pieces for our last fish  and game banquets. A lot of time and  effort has gone into these banquets and I  would like to see them carried on. We are  having a time getting people to take some  position in the club. Try and help your club  this year.  To the fellas that helped out on the bar  and door, Fred Cotton and Plul Raines,  also thank you.  Marty  Times ahd have given the reporter my lastv  few newsletters sent to you."  , As I said last week, I approached the  homemakers, ^ not.< vice versa and the  newsletter from which I am quoting is the  first newsletter I have received.  This newsletter was not given to me by  a homemaker.  "Since.tbe:Homemakers have chosen to  remain anonymous, it makes it impossible  for me to communicate with them  directly," the newsletter said.  Come on, you might be able to teU the  other homemakers, but you can't teU me  these women are anonymous.  After the jneeting these homemakers  had with the Community Service Society  executive? Weren't they obvious from our  interview? How about the numerous times  they have .contacted the Homemaker  office with various problems br questions?  And don't you know wh&you suspended  for refusing to sign an oath of confidentiality?  Another funny thing happened, but  after the newspaper was published. I  probably received more positive feedback  on that story ��� from homemakers, clients  and people off the street���than any other.  Somebody is going to get a very nice  camera for Christmas or the person  responsible for ripping us off again is  going to have a few extra dollars to spend  when he sells it.  I say he because I don't think many  women in this area are so criminaUy-  inclined, or have the strength, to kick a  hole through the back waU of our buUding  and then kick the door open to the office.  After sitting through the police news  conference every Friday and hearing  about the many break-ins, I'm beginning  to wonder why nobody is caught.  This is our third break-in since  February. My own camera and one of the  company's was stolen in the first, along  with a lens and flash; the remaining  camera was stolen in the second and the  camera replacing it was stolen this time.  Kicking in a waU like that must have  caused a lot of noise, but did the people  living near us hear it?

Sechelt notes  by Peggy Connor 885-9347  The Royal Canadian Legion Branch No.  140 played host to the patients from St.  Mark's Hospitals Extended Care Unit.  The Mini-bus saw them safely chauf-  fered to the Legion where they were made  very welcome. Legion President Patrick  Murphy tpld the special guests how much  they enjoyed having the opportunity to  entertain them away from the Hospital.  Branch 140 were the hosts, and the  Ladies of the Legion provided the refreshments. Ann Ebach, the President of the  Ladies, echoed the sentiments expressed  by the Branch President.  One of the services provided by the  Legion throughout the year is hospital  visiting.  To carry on with the party, the entertainment for the evening ��� Russ  Clarke, Rod Lizee and Ian Hunter were the  musical trio, Herb Ebach soloed on the  violin. The new activity aide at St/Ma"ry's,  Wendy. Eccles, proved her prowess with  the guitar and singing folksongs ln a  delightful voice.  The Sechelt Pipe Band, always a thrill  to hear, led by Harold Estabrook paraded  in full uniform.  Santa Clans arrived with a present for  all the guests and a jolly ho! ho! Gordon  Dewar appeared in his special suit well  disguised.  Many relatives and friends were alortg  to join in the fun, former activity Aide  Lillian Peters dropped in to see her old  friends.  The evenings fun over, the Mini-bus  was again on hand to take them home.  Travelling in real style with the new  Mini-bus which is much more functional as  it is specially built for the purpose,  carrying half a dozen passengers as well  as three wheelchairs.  The bus driver Mickey Cornwell is well  adapted to this type of busing, showing  patience and concern as many of the  passengers are not able to move as swiftly  as others, doing it all with a friendly smile.  HIGH SCHOOL FOR SECHELT?  With all the problems of transportation,  gas shortages, etc., it would seem time to  be looking at further:, expansion , of  OiatelecfyJunior,Secondary goingvUP, |o.  grade 12. There are so many advantages, to  be thought of if this was to extend to the  extra grades.  MORGAN'S NEIGHBOURS  Helen Dawe is an excellent historian  and seldom can be caught with the wrong  information, but I would like to correct one  of Morgan Thompson's neighboring  businesses in 19S7 was only partially right,  Frank Solnik moved from Sechelt in mid  year of 1957 and Cliff Connor ran Cliff's  Shell Service from about July, 1957 until  1965 when Neil Hansen and Jack Nelson  took over.  Those days when Morgan was across  the road a person could call back and forth  carrying on a conversation, now even a  yell might not be heard. Our village Is fast  changing into big businesses, maybe we  gain by this but it does not take the place of  what we have lost.  More people allow us to provide better  schooling closer to home, more Jobs for the  graduating students is one example so it Is  hard to know what to think. It is an exciting time to be here and when everything  settles down we might recapture the  village feeling.  *ea/JonK  <tim  dtloiVUat  IGA SPECIALS  TABLERITE MEATS  IGA or Heritage Boneless  SMOKED HAM    $298  lb.  $089  $979  $159  lb.

The Creek runoff  New Year's dance  By Jeanie Norton, 886-9609  Been wondering what to do this New  Year's Eve? Well, the Ways and Means  Committee decided there were enough  people interested to sponsor a dance and  they're bringing back "Rocky Craig and  the Rocky-a-billy Kings" for the occasion.  The band played the Pen Hotel a couple  of weeks ago and received rave reviews  from discerning clientele.

Thijffe's'aipat*  of dogs that hang"around the school and,  they're proving a nuisance, stealing the  kids' lunches', fighting, and even biting the  kids. The kids are becoming quite intimidated and with good reason.  We're -out of the dogcatcher's  jurisdiction, despite the suggestion last  spring that we make some arrangements.  And the SPCA is organized to prevent  maltreatment of animals, not maltreatment by animals, although some of the  dogs do look neglected.

Roberts Creek Aux  On December 10, 35  members of the Roberts  Creek Hospital Auxiliary  gathered with president  Pauline Lamb and Billy Steele  at the Golf Club for, the annual  luncheon meeting.    ... YY  Mrs. Steele, as chairlady of  the Co-ordinating Council,  installed the newly-elected  officers in the traditional  candle-lighting ceremony.  These officers for 1980 include  Mesdames Pauline Lamb,  president; Beverly Northway,  vice-president; Marjorie  Gibb; Marion Cupit, membership Convenor; Mildred  Forbes, treasurer and Moira  Richter, publicity convenor.  The following appointments were also made to  further the mark work of the  ayxUiaiiKc Thri^:shpp,rfLil  Flummer-felt and Dorothy  Bruce; volunteers (those  working within the hospital  including the gift shop) Bunny  Shupe; Sunshine, Madeline  Grose and junior volunteers,  Beverly Northway.  An interesting question  was brought forth. The  number of hours the volunteers work in different areas,  hospital, thrift shop, money-  raising etc., is quite formidable as shown by annual  reports.  Should we also include the  time spent in preparation?  Examples include the time the  librarian spends in selecting  and obtaining suitable reading  material for the patients as  well as that time moving  about the wards with the  library cart.  Also there are'many hours  spent knitting,.to :,have at-  tractiYej ;y suitable .^ gannents  for our new citkens at a  reasonable price. We'll have  to think on this question.  Tree frog at Aquarium  Little European tree frog is  among the latest of new  specimens to be displayed at  the Vancouver Public  Aquarium. "Freddy", and his  companions occupy a new,  specially designed exhibit,  constructed by Walter Son-  deregger, one of the  Aquariums' volunteers.  Freddy lives with three  other tree frogs, six ruin  lizards and half a dozen fire-  bellied toads. Their home  resembled-a mini-wilderness,  complete with plants, water  and lots of live insects to prey  upon. "The lizards like the  heat," said Walter, who often  finds them draped over the  stems of plants, soaking up  the heat he's provided. The  toads are the masters. The  strong ones come out in the  morning and the weaker ones,  In the afternoon. For the most  part though, they remain in  the water, resting under rocks  and in crevices.  The little tree frogs are by  far the most acrobatic. Their  disc-like toes enable them to  climb and hang on to almost  anything. In Europe, where  they used to be common,  people frequently kept them  as "pet" weather indicators.  They were placed in a jam jar  with a ladder in it, and if they  climbed the ladder, the sun  would shine but if they  remained on the bottom, it  would rain.

In the soil of Israel,  where the history of the  Hebrews began following the  migration of Semitic tribes  from the Persian Gulf, forty-  five centuries ago. The history  and origins of the people, their  "roots" in Israel,'are related  in the Bible and other ancient  records.  There has, however, been a,  larger-scale searching after  more knowledge of the past,  for details to supplement the  written biblical record. A new  impetus to this quest into the  past followed the establishment of the modern state of  Israel, 30 years ago. Ar-  / chaeological excavations  became ��� and remain ��� the  national pastime of increasingly large numbers of  Israelis.  Under mounds of soil and  stone, Israelis of today find  the roots of their past, a  record of the period of transition from food gathering to  planned agriculture, the.  beginnings of irrigation and  the development of building,  from the earliest fortifications.  at Jericho through the typical  four-room Israelite house,' to  the synagogues of the early  common era.  Above all, the way of life of  the ancestors are revealed in  the day to day domestic artifacts from another distant  age, now uncovered almost  every week. Hundreds of  "digs" are conducted every  year, strata and pottery  carefully dated, where the  stress is more on the  systematic research into the  past rather .than the collection  of removable items of antiquity for museums or  private collections. It is this  difference which distinguishes  archaeological research in  Israel today from the practice  before 1948.  NOMADS  The roots of the Hebrew  nation originated, as told in  Genesis, in Ur, with the  migration of Abraham first  northwards to Nineveh and*  then westward to Haran in the  Taurus mountain range,  before .moving gradually  southwards to Canaan, which  became the Promised Land.  Given this starting point,  the present-day search for the  past of the Israelis is conducted, also, in the former  Sumerian lands, through  which the Patriarchs passed  Poems for kids and  grownups as well  By LINDA STROUNT  On Pleasing  My parents say to act my  age���  That's   really  hard!   Know  why?  There are at least a dozen kids  The exact same age as I.  But maybe if I copy just a  little from each one,  Mom and Dad will be so proud  and pleased with what I've  done. . .  Can't wait  "Don't do that" and "Come in  now".'  Is childhood such a crime?  I sure wish I was all grown-up  So I could take my time.  One of Those'Days  Mom is in a lousy mood, my  brother is a brat,  I let our dog off her leash to  chase my neighbours' cat.  There's no one around to play  with, cause of all the rain  But tomorrow will be better  when the sun comes out again.  Fish Wish  I wish my school would close  forever  So I could go out fishing  I think I wish I'd never, never  Spent this time just wishing.  in the 19th century B.C. These  forefathers, nomadic  shepherds, living very much  like the Bedouin of today,  pitching their tents at grazing  sites, then moving on, were  not likely to have left material  traces of their sojourn.  The Sumerian Gilgamesh  legend, uncovered at Nippur,  provides parallel accounts to  the biblical story of the  creation of the world and of  the great flood at the time of  Noah. Particularly significant  in tracing the spread and  influence of this Babylonian  account is that a section of  Gilgamesh, in cuneiform, was  found in northern Israel as  well. A Mesopotamian  document found at Nuzi gives  a parallel account of the  Genesis narrative of Jacob,  his wives and his maid servants.  There is specific mention  of the Tribe of Asher in  Egyptian documents, and the  stele of Pharaoh Merneptah  singes out the name of a  nation, "Israel", a fact which  gives evidence that there were  Hebrews living in CanaaVi  before the conquest br"  Joshua. In other words, not all  the Hebrew tribesmen had  moved to Egypt, and the  Exodus led by Moses was of  the people in Egyptian bondage back to the land where  other members, of the twelve  Israelite tribes had been  living throughout the 420  years of Egyptian exile ���  from Joseph to Moses.  WAS JERICHO  DESTROYED?  The biblical account of the  conquest of Canaan and the  resettlement of the Israelites  ,on the land, in the book of  Joshua, is full of accounts of  wars. This is fully supported  by archaelogical evidence,  which, from the burnt  - remains of the destroyed  cities of Lachish, Bethel,  Hazor and Tel-beth-Mirsim,  pinpoints the time of Joshua's  conquest to the mid-thirteenth  century B.C.  There is mystery also, as  the earth reluctantly gives up  its secrets. Both at Jericho  and Ai, two cities razed to the  ground according to the  biblical account, ~ar- ~  chaeologists who worked at  the sites found no evidence  whatsoever of fires and  destruction relating to this  period. There is no  corroboration from the  physical remains, which led  some to suggest that the account of Joshua's victories  may have been deliberately  exaggerated, in order to raise  his stature as a military  commander.  SOLOMON'S     SECOND  TEMPLE  , Excavations at Hatzor,  Gezer and Megiddo revealed  that the fortress gates of all  these cities had, in King  Solomon's time, been built by  the king's architects according to a uniform plan.  Solomon's Temple in  Jerusalem was destroyed by  the Chaldeans in 586 BC, but at  Arad another Temple of  Solomon, constructed according to the same three  division plan, was uncovered,  providing a deep insight into  what was a central focus of  religious practice in the Israel  of three thousand years ago.  Excavations at Samaria,  Hatzor and (again) Megiddo  also        provide both'  corroboration and a better  understanding into Jhe  biblical account of the "might  Of the House of Omri". There  is proof in the form of the  palaces ahd walls, the  buildings and the water  tunnels. There is proof, also,  for the description of the  Palace of King Ahab given in  the Bible as the "ivory house".  t(l kings 22:39). A large  quantity of carved ivories was  found, which add to our  knowledge of the Jewish  heritage, as they depict a  graphic visual image of the  Temple ornaments used by  our forebears.  There are, also, the  written records which provide  added knowledge of the past  roots of the Jewish nation in  the soil of Israel. The Siloam ���  inscription in Jerusalem  describing in great detail how  the tunnel was carved in the  rock, deep, underground, at  the time of the Prophet Isaiah,  by King Hezekieh, as he  strengthened the defences of  Jerusalem to. face the invading Assyrians. The Bible  simply records the stark fact  that water was brought into  the city, but this tunnel, and  its written record of how the  work was done, a major and  imaginative engineering feat  at that day and age, is the  added knowledge which the  Israelis are always so happy  to find.  THE TOP THREE  Of the many excavations,  three have pride of place. The  Excavation of Herod's  mountain top retreat at  Masada on the Dead Sea,  there Jewish independence  ended tragically in the year 73  AD with the mass suicide of  the remianing rebels against  the Romans.  And the excavations  around the Temple Mount in'  Jerusalem, revealing the high  massive, magnificent walls  and esplanades of the greatest  builder in the history of Israel,  Herod the Great.  And the discovery of the  Dead Sea Scrolls .in the  Judean Desert caves at  Qumran, which opened a  sealed book, providing rich  evidence of the development  of Messianism in Judaism at  the turn of the Era,.and the  influence which the Qumran  sectarians probably the  Essenes; exerted in shaping  the doctrines., and dogmas of  . the early Christian Church  which has from these roots  grown and developed to  embrace mankind.

I By ROBERT FOXALL  Ordinary words are hot  enough to describe the  Christmas Feast that the  members of Branch Numbejr  69 enjoyed at noon of the 13th.  The Hall was filled at the due  time and while that gifted  young Accordionist" John  Branca, played much known*  and well-loved music we took  our seats and were soon being  served by the very efficient  group assisting , Mrs.  Robertson.    It    was    a  traditional Christmas Dinner  but . whats wrong with  traditional., food when it is,  tasty and succulent, as ours  was. President Bill Scott was  the M.C. and the Grace was  asked by Dave Hayward.  After dinner a number of  Door Prizes were,drawn for  with the following being the  lucky winners: Isabel Draper,  Jean Hammond, Iris Corbett,  Geo. Molt, Alf Garland, Ken  Wright, Marline Williams  .Jack Hermiston and Kay  Hermiston. How is it that my.  name never seems to be in  those hats?  On completion of the draw  the entire group joined ih the:  singing of carols led by the ,  Seniors Choir: Next Olive  Clear gave us two of our  favorite recitations "Old-  Fashioned Christmas" and  "I'm Pretty Good for The  Shape I'm In." You're always  good, Olive. Then our own  "Gold Dust Twins'' appropriately costumed,  Madeline Gross and Margaret  Evans brought the house down  when they sang and danced  "Sisters".  Jack Bushell kept up the  pace with several stories and  a well-rendered poem. Dave  Hayward. who was never, in  better voice brought this part  of the program to a conclusion  by singing "In the Hush of the  Night" and as an encore  "What a.Wonderful World."  The days events have assured  aU of us present of a Merry.  Christmas. It was such a good  start to the festive season.  I must remind alLmembers  of the monthly General  Meeting to be held on Dec.  20th. Be there for the installation of Officers. .  I am asked to remind  members that the New Years  Party will startat9:0G\p.m. on  New Years Eve with dinner  being served during the  evening.

December Mth. yea that  was last Friday, evening at the  Roberts Creek School Gym  where callers Harry  Robertson and a fellow by the  name of Maurice (dun't no  him) shared the stage for one  of the best Christmas square  dance parties I have ever saw  and, well chee whiz, how could  you go wrong with about four  sets of new dancers and four  sets of The Country Stars, lets  see now thats a total of eight  sets on the floor and the best  and most friendliesTgroup of  dancers that hall has ever  seen, -just fantastic; no use  telling you that all had a good  time because you have  already guessed that.  Spot prizes went to couples  Mac Scott and Marge Iverson,  Ernie Wood and Elaine  Crosten and the door prize  went to Mac Scott and Bev  Brandon meanwhile, Tom  Parish thought that he had the  winning card because it was a  joker and he said that in a  card game the Joker always  takes the place of any other  card but our Pres. Lome soon  put him straight to the fact  that this was no card game.  Oh, well! Better luck next  time Tom.  A great big thank you to the  conveynours and all the ladies  for the wonderful goodies at  coffee time ahd then Santa  Claus and Santa's helper Bev  Brandon came in to keep an  eye on the exchange of  presents, now when you try to  keep to a dollar budget I'm  telling you there was a lot of  laughs and I know that.the  Santa was none other than our  President Lome Bowden.  Harry and I both wore the  Christmas vests that Ethel  Scrimshaw made us for last  year and unfortunately she  was unable to come and we  did look so great.  Thanks from all The  Country Stars for a very  thoughtful card from George  and Em Flack and we do hope  that they will be back to join  us soon.  Bill Beale our school  janitor, (no I think main-  tainance engineer sounds  better) joined us for coffee  and goodies and a present.  The New Years square  dance will be held at The  United Church Hall in Gibsons  Dec. 3lst., 1979 at 8 p.m. and  we will dance right thru till  Jan. 1,1980.  Beginners classes start  again on Jan 7th. at St. Hildas  Hall and The Roberts Creek  School gym, lor information  call 885-3359 or 886-9540.  The Country Stars square  their sets on Jan. ll, same  place same time same old  callers, so lets have a real  good start the second half of  the square dance season.

Sunday Dec.  9th was the evening when the  local teenagers were treated  to a 4giijghtful Christmas  dinner with all the tftmrnings;  This was provided by the  Recreation Association and  was convened by Donna  Perry.  Some twenty six young  people enjoyed the meal and  the evening of fun. Donna  wished to express her appreciation to those who so  kindly gave their help for this  occasion, special mention  being made of Bruno and Kay  Dombroski and Helen Hain,  plus the other parents who so  willingly donated.  This is the only night of the  year that the young people in  this age group have occasion  to get together, and they  really do enjoy it.  There was special- applause for one young fellow by  the name of Verne Taylor who  was brave enough to bake a  couple of apple pies and bring  them along for the occasion.  Monday afternoon of Dec.  10 saw the carpet bowlers  getting together for their  Christmas luncheon. They  spent a most enjoyable afternoon and it was a l_ppy  gathering which was saddened a bit by the fact that Bill  Fraser had taken ill just that  day. The Frasers were really  missed, so get well soon Bill ���  they need you there.  Vince Shannon proposed a  special toast to Keith and  Olive Comyn in appreciation  of the excellent job that they  do in organizing the carpet  bowling.  The first session in the new  year will begin on Mon., Jan 7  at the hall at 1 p.m. There is  still lots of room for new  members and you will be  made welcome at these fun  sessions.  At the time of writing I can  only report on the Friday,  Dec.. 14th Welcome Beach  Association Christmas dinner  ��� will have to hold the  ���;���;���. Saturday one till next time7  'Some fifty people sat down to  enjoy a delicious piping hot  turkey dinner provided by  caterer Helen Robertson. The  hall had a really festive atmosphere with the beautiful  table decorations which our  own artistic Carmen Grassie  had made. President Grace  Rutherford extended a warm  welcome to everyone and a  special welcome to some of  the newer residents present.  After dinner there was an  air of excitement as the little  children from Halfmoon Bay  school gradually arrived to  help provide entertainment. It  was a big night for them ��� the  little girls all looking so pretty  in their lovely dresses and the  boys managing to look as  dapper as little boys can.  Accompanying the  children  were their teacher. Lorene  Taylor and Katherine Kelly.  Katherine played guitar  throughout the programme of  Christmas songs and carols. It  was a well thought out.  selection of music with some  unusual numbers away from  the run of the mill' carols.  Katherine Kelly sang a  beautiful solo which tugged at  the heartstrings of those of us  far away from our "ain folks"  called "My Christmas  Dream". Katherine is always  a joy to listen to.  The programme was much  appreciated by the audience  and it gave a true Christmas  feeling to the evening to have  the very young people of the  area give of their time and  talents to entertain us. For  those of you who missed it,  there will be an opportunity to  enjoy seeing and hearing the  children at their Christmas  concert in the Halfmoon Bay  school on Thursday, Dec. 20th  at 7 p.m. You really should try  to take this one in.  Following the childrens'  programme the Murphy  sisters ��� Diedre, Sheila,  Louise and Stephanie  delighted the audience with'  their varied programme of  songs with Diedre on guitar.  These girls get more polished  every time they perform. One  day someone is going to  discover their talents and they  will be lost to Halfmoon Bay,  but in the meantime they are  bringing a lot of joy to those  lucky enough to hear them.  The audience couldn't get  enough of them and would  have had them sing all night.  They sang some of the  favourite Christmas songs as  well as some of the more  modern ones ��� all of which  were beautifully done ��� their  harmony is perfect and must  be the result of many hours of  practice.  Our special thanks to the  Murphy girls who, at this very  busy time of year were willing  to take time out to give us such  pleasure.  RECREATION  ASSOCIATION  RECEIVES GRANT  . The dream of a recreation  park in the area is one step  nearer to reality. Cliff Connor,  who has been working hard  towards this project was  delighted to receive word that  a grant has been passed by the  EVEN THOUGH students  and teachers on Bowen  Island were busy moving  Canada Works Programme.  The clearing work should get  started just after new year  and will make work for three  people. The grant will of  course only cover part of the  work to be done and there will  be need for much volunteer  work. It should be pointed out  too that this venture will not in  any way affect our taxes and  that is always good news.  After New Year work parties  will be organized "and your  help will be appreciated.  The Recreation  Association is a small but very  busy group and could do with  a lot more support from area  residents. They hold their  meetings on the second  Monday of each month at  Welcome Beach hall and the  next one will be on Jan. 14.  Plans are afoot for a dance in  January and there will be  more on this later.  OLD TIME VISITOR PASSES  Mr. William Miller, father  of Aileen Garnet died recently  at his home in Portland,  Oregon, Mr. MUler was a well  known visitor to the area for  many years and* spent happy  summers at the Garnet home.  Five years ago he and Mrs.  Miller celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary  here and were delighted to  receive a telegram of  congratulation from the then  Prime Minister Trudeau. Mrs.  Miller is at present with her  daughter on Redrooffs.  GOLDEN     ANNIVERSARY  SURPRISE  Jack and Queenie Burrows  got the surprise'.'of, their lives  on Sun.;''Dec!?iy9 wh&i their  daughter Mary Lehman invited them for dinner. No,  they were not surprised to be  asked for dinner ��� but they  certainly did not expect  dinner to turn out to be such a  big event. Their family and  friends numbering around  into the new community  school these past few  weeks, they still had time .  seventy people from all over  had gathered to.wish them  well on this great occasion.  It turned out to be a very  happy day for Jack and  Queenie and we hope that they  will enjoy many more happy  years together.  A SPECIAL  CHRISTMAS GREETING  Mr. and Mrs. Bill Dalgliesh  from Letham in Fifeshire,  Scotland made many friends  on Redrooffs while visiting  with their daughter Katherine  Kelly in the summer. They  asked to pass along their  Christmas greetings to all  those who made them feel so  welcome here.  LOTS OF WEDDING BELLS  George and Marg Carpenter are having a busy time  just now with wedding bells.  On Dec. 13 they attended the  wedding of their daughter  Donna to Steve Pickering off  North Vancouver, At this  wedding it was announced  that another daughter Cathie  plans to be married on Dec.  28th to Mr. Claude Trycott. So  it means that when the Carpenters are at North Van. for  Christmas with their family  they will be staying over for  the next wedding.

The MCC would not clarify the  ownership of the four licenses presently  being used by Mike Negraiff of Village  Taxi.  However the Times has learned that  Eva Setchfield's name along with  Naigraiff's are on the licences.  Naigraiff claims that Setchfield  relinquished the rights to the licenses  Bowen Island stays put  Former education minister Dr. Pat  McGeer has decided Bowen Island should  for the present remain within School  District No. 46 (Sunshine Coast) following  an Interim report submitted by the  Housego Commission.  We'll be closed  Due to the Christmas and New Year's  holiday season, the Peninsula Time's  office will be closed starting this Friday  December 21 and will reopen on January 2.  However, this will not be the last issue  before the end of 1979. Watch for our  special Christmas Issue In your mailbox on  Monday, December 24.  If you wish to place a classified In tho  December 24 Issue, you must get It In to us  by Thursday noon.  Headed by Dr. Ian Housego, the  commission was struck approximately  seven months ago to study whether Bowen  Island should remain within School  District No. 46 or be included in School  District No. 45 (West Vancouver) where  enrolment is declining.  Presently, secondary students from  Bowen Island attend  school  in West  Vancouver,  As part of the solution the minister  recommends secondary students continue  In West Vancouver. To ensure there is no  direct cost to taxpayers of West Vancouver, the minister recommends the two  districts and tho education ministry  develop a formula where School District  No. 45 is compensated.  Bowen Island residents earlier expressed their wish to remain In School  District No. 46 through trustee Brian  Hodgins.  when she turned them in to the MCC. But  Setchfield claims she still has the rights to  the licenses although she admits to having  turned them in.  "I had no choice because Nagraiff was  refusing to dispatch to my cabs," Setchfield said.  MCC officials refused to comment on  the situation, but said they hoped to  resolve the problem when the MCC comes  down with a decision on other license  applications on the Coast.  Meanwhile, taxi service to the Sechelt  area took another temporary blow when  Village Taxi ceased its operation in  Sechelt.  "I shut the Sechelt office down because  it was too difficult to run out of the office  we were in, but I intend to start up an  office and have two cars running in  Sechelt in the office presently being used  by Mitten Realty," Nagraiff said.  Nagitalff added he was dispatching to  the Sechelt area and he was also receiving  $17,000 worth of dispatching equipment  sometime this week.  Tho MCC Is expected to make a ruling  on two applications for licenses before  them, ono by Naigraiff and another by the  owner of Sun Dispatch (1979), Bud Peppar  sometime soon. Peppar presently owns  dispatching equipment but does not hold  any licenses.   m\  8  8  GIFT  LIST  Rods&  Reels  Golf Carts  Crested Hats  Tennis Sets  Weight Sets  Badminton Racquets  Skip Ropes  Exercise Equipment  Soccer & Basketballs  Ski Goggles & Glasses  Bikes & Accessories  Christmas  Specials  ��� Scotty Downrigger  Model 1050        $69.99  Model 1060 $89.99  ��� Little Chief Smokers  $53.99  ��� Depth Sounder  Mariner 580, 60 ft. 60 fathoms,  Depth Alarm.

ROCK AND PIED PEAR
The favourite sons of Vancouver
KEl6wNA- Fisher Stoves of B.C.
supports government efforts to increase .
safety in relation to te use of wood burning
heaters. In addition, the company has
calledonthe province to implement wide-
ranging safety standards within the entire
industry.
Fisher Stoves spokesman Gunnar
Forsstrom said all wood burning heaters
should be brought up to CSA and ULC
standards and that all installations should
be inspected by Fire Officials.
Forsstrom's comments came in
response to a ban of the A-Vent Chimney
and a BCTV report of the same day which
suggested   fireplace   inserts   were
dangerous.
"The fire inspector has assured me
there: is nothing wrong with the Fisher,
Fireplace Insert," said Forsstrom. "The
problem lies with improper installation
and use, and in some cases shoddy workmanship on mason.fireplaces."
"We take responsibility for our
product/.' said Forsstrom. "Now its up to
the industry and government to ensure
wood heaters are being properly used."
Our company is concerned that f urthei
fires may occur unless certain guidelines
are introduced and the public becomes
educated in the operation of wood heaters.
Fisher Stoves will assist in any. way.
"I have,already met with Premier
Bennett and discussed this issue;" said
Forsstrom. "A clean-up of the industry is
long overdue."
The favorite sons of the Vancouver
Rock Scene, Doug and the Slugs, returned
triumphantly to the stage Thursday night
at the Commodore Ballroom to bring the
sold-out crowd of friends, relatives and
freaks once again to the realization that
there's nothing like good ol' rock and roll.
A first-rate group, the men approached
the stage (after being called back from
"retirement") in wheelchairs handled by
Red Cross nurses. Their make-up and
senilic gestures were very effective as a
lead-in to the re-working of an old R 'n' B
standard, "99% just won't do... I wanna
be 100".
The five-piece group, with Doug singing
lead, moved easily through forty-five
minutes of very stylish and driving rhythms, which had the packed dance floor
full-tilt by the end of their first set.
What do you
really know
about
us?
No-doubt you've
heard of Seventh-day
Adventists. but perhaps
you're not quite sure what they
believe. Or perhaps you've wondered why they go to church on
Saturday when most other Christian churches
consider Sunday as their Sabbath.
We'd like to extend a cordial invitation to you to
get better acquainted with your Adventist neighbors. You'll find the Adventist church in your
neighborhood a friendly place. You'll find that
Seventh-day Adventists look to the Bible as their
guide and accept it asGod's Word. They observe
the historic seventh-day Sabbath as Jesus and
His disciples did, because that was the day God
blessed and hallowed as a memorial of creation.
They also respect those who choose another day
as their day of rest.
More than anything else, Adventists look for, and
hope for, the promised return of Jesus. On the
basis of Bible prophecy they believe He will
come soon. That's why Adventists are among
the most active churches in missionary efforts.
So, if you'd like a friendly church home
where the warmth of Christian love is a tangible
thing, please stop by and get acquainted. If
you'd like to receive more information by mail, a
personal visit, or a telephone call, use the form

During the intermission we were
treated to three - historic tunes by a
whistling midget. What a tummy!
This is the first time a Vancouver group
has sold out the Ballroom, and these boys
did it twice - Saturday night as well! Their
opening act, The Barrelhouse Blues Band,
was very smooth and tight. They have a
single coming out and have appeared on
the coast.
If ya wanna shot of great Rock and.
Roll, catch Doug and the Slugs while you
can! s
Son of Wildroot has been warming up
for New Year's Eve at Rohan's in Kit:
salano. Conducted by Jim McGillvary, this
ten-piece ensemble handles Glenn Miller
to Frank Zappa to BB King with equal
integrity ahd, boy.. do ya wanna dance!
With searing guitar lines and multi-shaded
horn arrangements, this unit has a very
contemporary sound. So, if you're gonna
be in town . . .
Back on the Sunshine Coast, a musical
event of yet another nature took place
Friday night at the Roberts Creek Hall. It
was family dance night, and in Concert
were-was none other than Pied Pear!
With three albums already to their
credit, Rick Scott and Joe Mock are
releasing a fourth - "Pied Who Pear
What?" on their own label, "Squash",
very shortly.
Having lived in Roberts Creek, Rick
enjoys returning to share his talent and
travels with the adoring audience there.
Complimented beautifully and precisely
on guitar, piano and vocals by Joe, Rick
carries his lead vocals very strongly while
mesmerizing the crowd, chording his four-
string Appalacian dulcimer.
This guy drives like Jimmy Page of Led
Zeppelin, but instead of being knocked
against the wall I felt like I was a little kid
again. I think all the kids, young and old
alike, will look forward to seeing and
hearing Pied Pear again.
Kate Angermeyer joined them on fiddle
for the last/few tunes, drawing a joyous
encore to a light-hearted evening.
Joe and Rick can be caught on CBC's
Bondolo show, Monday nights. Their stage
presence coupled with occasional displays
of aptitude in mime and theater make Pied
Pear an engaging and mystical entity —
one I'm glad to say I've now experienced.
Those of you who may be looking for a
new record album or two to enliven your
catalogue (in addition to Pied Pear), may
I suggest Michael Franks' "Tiger in the
Rain" for sophisticates, and Jules in the
Polar Bears' "Phonetics" for Rockers and
New Wavers. Both should be available
through Coast record dealers.
Merry Christmas and good luck in the
Ws!

ATLAS OF BRITISH COLUMBIA by
.Albert Farley, University of British
Columbia, Press 1979,136 pages.     '
For that special family on your gift list,
you might try the newly published Atlas of
British Columbia. If you are familiar with
the National Atlas of Canada, you will
appreciate this reference book.
Albert Farley who arranged and
compiled the information for the atlas,
began his arduous task some four years
ago. His inspiration was the 1956 British
Columbia Atlas of Resources. While he
considered it a complete work in its field,
he felt that it could be expanded and
revised in a new form. The result was his
present work.
The atlas is divided into three sections:
people, environment, resources. Along
with the full colour, large map is a page of
text. The text often includes photographs
for further clarification of information.
Insets on the maps include enlargements
of high density areas.
For a closer look, let's peruse the
Population section. Map 1. indicates the
historical growth in population of British
Columbia from 1911 to 1931. The text
breaks the totals down further by showing
the population for Victoria and Vancouver
metropolitan areas with their per cent
increases from 1870 to 1931. It is interesting to note that Greater Victoria
made up 13 per cent of British Columbia's
populace in 1870, while Vancouver and
area had only 4 per cent. Today Vancouver
has risen tp 54 per cent while Victoria is at
12 per cent. These kinds of figures would
interest not only students but also the
average citizen who enjoys poking into the
past on informal browses.
Other parts of the population section of
the book, explore ethnicity. A table
compares the distribution of British
Columbia groups to those of Canada. While
these are not surprising; they ShoW'iuiique
patterns. We have a higher percentage of
German and Native Indian groups here
than the national average. Our Chinese
immigrant figures which are very high
comparatively, are no surprise to us.
Indian people will find the pages on
language groupings and tribal units
useful. Students of the Native Indian
culture will appreciate the breakdown of
dialectic divisions. The map also shows
reserves, and gives their approximate
populations.
The surveyor's "Truteh Map" which
was done by Sir Joseph William Truteh in
1871, shows amazing accuracy. Truteh and
his crews, working under difficult conditions/made their detailed map of the
mountains and passes with an accuracy
that astounds the experts today. The map
is included as a historical reference in the
atlas.
Migration from province to province
and from other areas to ours presents
browsers with more fascinating information. It may be quite obvious that the
Peace River area would show enormous
growth, but somehow seeing it on a map
makes it even more impressive. In-
migration and out-migration look like a
two-way street on the map on page 21. It
seems that the exchange that takes place
between the far western and the far
eastern areas of Canada are in balance.
Charts showing the distribution of the
labour force from 1951 to 1971 Indicates the
amazing development of the northern
areas. Also graphed Is the total increase of
those in the labour force as well as the
distribution in their individual fields.

\ THE LIFE OF BRYAN  Wednesday, December 19,1979  The Peninsula Times  Page C-5  A movie not for church groups  A Warner Bros.-Orion release, rated R.  Comedy, 91 mln., now in release.  Monty Python's "The Life of Brian" is  certainly not $ movie to invite a church  group to, but it is a very funny movie. It  doesn't quite reach the lunacy level of  "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," but  that's, probably because it has a more  sustained, recognizable story. But it is  nonetheless funny and irreverant.  The religious groups attacking "Life of  Brian" have a point. If these groups were  going to say anything at all, it just about  had to be negative. The film doesn't just  kid around with religious traditions. It  kicks them and. then jumps up and down on  them for good measure..  But it's also not quite as sacrilegious as  the groups insist. The actor portraying  Jesus Christ acts and looks no different  than he. would in most serious religious  epics and" only appears in two short  segments. Much of the film's 91 minutes  concerns various inept . liberation  movement groups that do little but argue  with each other.  The fact that Brian is mistaken for the  Messiah is not an uncommon occurrence  for the film's time period. People were  constantly finding new candidates for the  predicted Messiah, so it seems perfectly  natural that a fanatic mob would latch on  to Brian as the One.  It's understandable, however, why  certain groups.might take offense. One  does need an open, healthy sense of humor  to enjoy the film. Not only religious  traditions Are satirized here; politics,  homosexuality, ethnic groups and physical  Handicaps are also up for laughs.  What may offend "Life of Brian"  viewers is that it has all the authenticity of  any Biblical epic. In fact; it was filmed on  the same Tunisian locations as "Jesus of.  Nazareth." Except for the language, a few  .situations and a quick scene in which  Brian accidentally becomes involved in a  "Star Wars"-like space battle (it has to be  seen to be understood), it really seems no  different at all.  Well, of course, Pontius Pilate does talk  like Elmer Fudd, which makes his guards  giggle. That wasn't in any Cecil B. DeMille  version.  And when Brian was an infant, three  wise men .mistook his manger for a more  famous one down the Street. Brian's  mother Mandy mistakes the wise men for  fortunetellers. That wasn't in "The  Greatest Story Ever Told."  When Briaii'is discovered writing anti-  Roman graffiti on walls, the Roman  soldiers are more upse by his incorrectly  conjugated Latin verbs than by his anti-  Roman sentiments.  Brian eventually becomes involved  with a terrorist group called the People's  Frontof Judea, which spends most of its  energy hating the Judean People's Front  and the Front of Judean People and  several other factions of the same cause.  The main pastime in this period was  apparently the stoning of prisoners. But  because only men are allowed to throw  stones, there is quite a large concession of  beards for women who want to "pass."  The Sermon on the mount draws such a  large crowd that some spectators who  have poor seats, including Brian and  Mandy, think the message is "Blessed are  the cheesemakers," or "Blessed are the  Greek."  After Brian is mistaken for the Messiah  and his new disciples follow him home, his  mother shoos them away for being much  too noisy.  Finally Brian is sent to be crucified,  Although he is almost saved by a crack  suicide squad which, of course, commits  suicide.  But it all ends on an upbeat note when  _  one of the men on the crucifixes leads the  nther executed men and women in Several  choruses of'Look on the Bright Side," a  nice toe-tapping little ditty.  , So, okay, it's not your typical,  traditional religious epic. It's Not Really  your typical, traditional .'aaythmg. What it  is, is very funny. Just be warned that some  of you will take offense. So please note the  following: Mature. Warning: Religious  ridicule, some nudity and coarse  language.

The delighted audience was relaxed  enough by Mr. Sayers' warm and witty  narration to interject questions and  comments on particular details of style.  The dramatic flair of the pieces was well  supported, by detailed historical  knowledge.  The show was well balanced both  historically and dramatically. We saw the  costume of an Edwardian lady shortly  followed by that of a factory working girl,  then we were hit with all the dazzle and  glamour of the Paris costume worn by a  Penticton girl for her coming out party at  the Savoy in London, 1924. Outrageous  flappers and dignified matrons shared a  few minutes of their fashion eras with us  and then disappeared behind the curtain  with apt timing. Few will forget the "Ugh"  skirt, the sheared muskrat, or the red and  white nylon gloves.  As the costumes presented crept into  the fashionable past of the audience, some  squeals and groans of recognition were  heard: The little black suit was admirably  represented by a Christian Dior original.  Schiaparelli hot pants postured past on a  terribly Vogue model.

Ivan Sayers and ha  models well represent that spirit of delight  and dedication that can bring art close to  home.  By TERRY COWDEROY  Stephen Hubert has been entertaining  at the Wakefield Inn on and off for a few  months now. A versatile singer-  songwriter, who has been around a long  time (performing professionally for  nearly 15 years), he was recording in 1967  with the Resume's, a Washington D.C.  rock band.  During those fifteen years he's moved  back and forth across the states from D.C.  to California, to Hawaii evolving and  honing his musical skills.  .Hubert's,;musical-roots are in. the.  Rhythm and Blues .scene of the mid-late  sixties, as well as early classical training  on piano.  He considers himself fortunate to have  played and jammed with some of the best  musicians in the business; Richie  Hayward of Little Feat, Bernie Leadon of  the Eagles and Nils Lofgren among others.  (Lofgren was ah early friend and for-  *3a-aa\^  *.���3a,a-j**.".^sru_Yii��ii:iffir���*_  STEPHEN HUBERT  mative influence) The rich variety in  Hubert's musical outlook has a lot to do  with the variety and richness of his past.  Hubert has been writing, songs for  years ��� he easily has enough for a couple  ohgreat albums. Still, much of the beauty  of Steve's original-material remains to be  seen. Many of the tunes written are  arranged to include horns and other instruments. He hears this full R 'n' B sound  in his head (all different patterns, solos  etc.) and playing by himself in some cases  limits this potential. Hovyever, even in  their "Diamonds in the Rough" form quite  a few bt Hubert's originals ("Walk across  the Border", "The Sweetest Love", "Now  That You're Gone") are on par with  Jackson Browne, the early Eagles or  Jimmy Buffett in terms of song-writing  . and instrumentation.  His sound is original but also captures  the essence of other artists tunes. He has a  catalogue full of his favorites from the  great Blues guitarists Freddie and Albert  King, to Sam Cooke, The Eagles, Dylan,  Atlanta Rhythm Section, Jackson Browne  to Eric Clapton.  One of the nights I saw him he even  successfully pulled off a thoroughly  competant cover of Kansas' "Dust in th?  Wind". It wasn't the song particularly that  impressed me but Steve's flexible versatility.  In the situation he is equally at home  with Heavy Rock, Blues or Country Swing  Standards. This flexibility is what has  enabled him to open for The Kinks in  Washington and with equal enthusiasm  play an evening of easy-listening music at  the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club  (something the Kinks wouldn't pull off).  Steve is off to Hawaii for a few months  starting in January, although he's got  plans and company backing for an album  in the near future. It's been something he's  waited for a long time. I can wait a few  more months.  m  7  FOR LAST MINUTE SHOPPERS  WECANSTILLHELP  WE HAVE LINGERIE,  LOUNGEWEAR AND BLOUSES  IN A GOOD VARIETY OF  STYLES AND SIZES.  it %'  %y����  ^       FASHION CENTRES  EXPERIENCED WATER WELL  PRILLING  MORRIS GILBERT DRILLING  CALL POWELL RIVER COLLECT  485-5442 FREE ESTIMATES  WELLS FOR FARMS  HOMES AND COTTAGES  Co  <3l  c>  ^  '5th ANNUAL TURRET DINNER SPECIAL*  We would like lo extend our best wishes to everyone and  wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

The Canfor pulp  mill at Port Mellon has the largest  work force on the Sunshine Coast  providing employment for 400 people.  A look at the script writers  ByEVIBLUETH  Mark and Lynn Strange, the  originators of the Beachcomber TV story,  recently moved to Gibsons where they are  living in an old parsons house built ih 1909.  They are presently working on six new  scripts for future shows, as well as details  for a Beachcomber Feature film. Their  success comes out of their unique ability to  work as a team,  Mark said, "Lynn's contribution to my  writing became more and more important. To tell you the truth she's much  more brilliant, than I ami I'm a good  rewrite man, but she comes up with good  ideas all the time.  Lynn said, "The most satisfying time in  the writing process is the initial rush when  we start getting ideas, often using our own  dialogue as a catalyst."  Mark, originally from Kitchener,  Ontario, began his career as an actor at a  young age. He performed in various  amateur theatre groups and at eighteen  . moved to Toronto where he Worked as a  folksinger. Although it was not his plan to  become an actor, things worked in his  favour and he found himself securing the  lead role in several feature films.  Following an audition in Toronto  recommended by a friend, he began a  period of acting that lasted ten yearn  He was leading man in a film with  Genevieve Bujold called, "Isabel" and  another ln the states called "Shadow on  the Land". Mark says, "In those days I  was a young leading man but I got too fat  for that and decided it was time for me to  get out It was either that or starve  myself I"  He went on to say that, "I think if you  want to be an actor4 you really have to  dedicate yourself to it, physically as well.  In acting you have to be slim and trim and  you have to dress well. You are your  product!"  After the experience of writing and  directing the TV series, the  "Manipulators", Mark began losing interest in acting. The idea of conceiving,  directing and producing his own shows  became more appealing. Acting lost its  glitter and became a monotonous series of  waits. As he says, "Film acting is quite  boring. You'spend a lot of time sitting  around waiting for them to set up the  cameras and the lights, while people poke  and prod you, put stuff on your face, comb  your hair and put clothes on you. It gets  very boring and unfulfilling spending the  whole day sitting around looking in the  mirror."  The Beachcomber story, originally  called "Molly's Reach" was conceived in  1971. Mark and Lynn, already scriptwriters, were aware that the CBC was  looking for writers to prepare a show  similar to Rainbow Country. Their first  proposal, set in depression days, was  refused due to expensive sets and  costuming, but their second, "Molly's  Reach" was quickly and readily accepted.  The Sunshine Coast was selected as an  ideal location due to its reliably good  filming weather and its close proximity to  Vancouver.  What had been the liquor store in  Gibsons immediately was chosen as a  prime set and soon became Molly's  Reach". The energy and vitality of Bruno  Gerussi made him prime candidate for the  leading role. The stage was set and the  filming began. Although the show was  sparked off by Lynn and Mark's  imagination, soon many people became  involved.  The original comedy adventure series  that the Strange's planned changed over  the years. Feeling a little disappointed  Lynn said, "We wanted more humour in  the shows, but it was never the overall  philosophy of the series." Lynn objects to  CBC's lack of interest in new ideas. As she  says, "It's like a private club. There's  very little room for creative talent", fs  Mark realizes once the script is out of  his hands he has no more control over what  happens. Although he accepts this in his  present situation as a freelance writer, he  is very much looking forward to a future  as director and producer. The feature they  are planning called "The Abominable  Kid'' will be filmed locally with most of the  original Beachcomber cast. Although still  in the planning stage, both Lynn and Mark  feel positive about their new idea. "The  script we've written is almost like a  Disney film. The main character will be a  baby sasquatch." said Lynn.  Aside from being a script writer, Mark  is also a painter. Lynn, previously an  actress and singer, now is a mother as well  as writer. Although Mark seems to consider their days slow and lazy, their  combined energy seems to be pouring out  the beginnings of great creative works. As  Mark says, "If you're a creative person,  you have to be creating. It's a compulsion.  It's not so much fitting it in or driving  yourself to do it, you will do itl"  TEREDO SQUARE  SECHELT'S NEWEST SHOPPING COMPLEX  NOW LEASING  ��� Prime Retail & Air Conditioned Office Space ��� Elevator for 2nd and 3rd Floor  ��� Store Opening First Week in December  ��85-2522 or 885*2254  By JULDE SOUTHERST  Having trouble balancing your cheque  book? Do metrics have you stymied? Does  your daughter need help with her Math  homework and have you forgotten where  to put the decimal point?  , Or... in a more serious vein, are you  someone who left school when you were  fifteen or so because the lure of the adult  world and the big bucks you thought were,  there was too strong to resist? And did you  perhaps find out after a while that having  left school was not such a good idea after  all, and that now the door to another job  (or any job, perhaps) or to a promotion, or  to a vocational program is closed to you?  Or are you possibly a wife and mother  who is looking ahead to the day when her  last youngster heads off to school and she  will be able to look for a job, but before she  does, she wants to complete the high  school education she left five or ten or  twenty years ago?  Or do you^jtfst want to complete your  grade 10 or 12 just because you want to  have it for its own sake and will thereby  feel better about yourself?  Whatever category you may fit into,  whatever your reasons for having left  school in the first place, and whatever  reasons you may have for wanting to  complete your high school education,  Capilano College's BTSD program is  something that should merit your consideration; it does provide an opportunity  to pick up where you left off and.to complete some unfinished business.  But perhaps, like many other people,  you may be hesitant about embarking on a  "back to school" course. Like many of the  College's present or former students, the  idea of tackling a Grade 10 or 11 or 12  program fills you with apprehension. Like  them you may be thinking "It's been so  long since I've been to school that I've  forgotten everything I ever knew" ... "I  hated Math in school: I just couldn't understand it" ... "I never caught on to  things like (2a+3) (3a+4). None of that  stuff ever made any sense to me." As often  as not, there was one particular subject  that made life miserable in Grade 8 or 9 or  10, and as often as not, that subject was  Mathematics.  All of the foregoing may be true to a  certain extent, but, by and large, those  students involved in the program have  found, to their surprise and satisfaction,  that they had learned far more than they  gave themselves credit for, that they had  forgotten far less than they thought they  had, and that they could cope more than  adequately with all the materials  presented. Their initial trepidation has  given way to complete confidence in  dealing with a Mathematics program not  too dissimilar from what is currently  presented in the secondary school system.  Upon entering the ^ifog'ram, .^all-  students write a series of inventory tests to  determine their level of competence in the  four basic arithmetic processes, (addition,  subtraction, multiplication and division)  as they apply to whole numbers, fractions,  decimals and per cents. It is here where it  is determined just exactly what a student  may have forgotten or what she-he may  not have adequately grasped in the first  instance. Review work in areas of difficulty is assigned and when a student  demonstrates that she-he has overcome  this difficulty, work in the course proper  commences. This initial period of testing  and review may last anywhere from a few  days to a few weeks depending on the gaps  in the student's knowledge and also on how  much time she-he is able to devote to the  program.  When the initial surveys are complete,  students choose either a Business Math or  a Technical Math option, depending  primarily on their vocational choice. The  Level 2-3 (Grade 10) Math concerns Itself  with   an   introduction   to   Metrics,  Provincial Mathematics Achievement  Tests designed by the Ministry of  Education.  The average length of time required to  complete the program is 5 to 6 months;  however the time in many cases is much  less and if further training or another job  is you goal, then these are that much  closer. And Capilano College has seven  numbers which might be of some help in  bringing that goal closer still. They are  885-3814. Dial them.  CONSTRUCTION: PAUL JUNTUNEN ... DESIGN by FJORD DESIGN  Measurement, Basic Statistics, Basic  Geometric Construction, Money  Management, Taxation, and a unit on  basic Algebra for those who intend pursuing a Technical Math program in Level 4  (Grade 12). . ���  The Level 4 Business Math expands.on  the topics covered in the previous level but  deals with them in greater depth and  complexity. The Technical Math option  deals almost entirely with Algebra and  Trigonometry; many apprenticeships and  trade programs require a knowledge of  these two topics.  Upon completion of each unit, the  student writes a test to determine her-his  understanding of the material covered. 80  per cent must be achieved in order to  receive a passing grade and be permitted  to proceed to the next unit. If this mark is  not achieved, further review work is  assigned, and the student rewrites that  portion of the test. Very rarely is a third  attempt necessary and this is not because  the tests are easy; they are not.

The Garden Corner  All year garden  \  By Guy Symonds  The idea of an "ever bearing" kind of  garden that was mentioned at the close of  the last Corner appeals to this gardener  because, from all the signs and protents  we may find the ordinary business of  living just a little bit tougher than it has  been for lo these many years. =  The growing of a garden that can make  ja significant contribvitioaxto the.vfamily,  business is as old as man hhnsetf, but in  the affluent age its value has dwindled. It  was replaced by easily earned money to  pay someone else to do the work and so  successful and skilful have the producers  of food become that the percentage of  family income spent on food is less than it  has ever been.  But in the years ahead this may not  work and it will be a wise raiser of a family  who plans for it. It just may well be that  the growing of food will be very important  in'thryears ahead. Now we hear that the  National Garden Bureau of America ���  has just released plans for what they term  a "non-stop" garden to show the serious  grower of the family vegetable need, how  to make the most of his available ground.  The plan shows three gardens ���  Spring, Summer and Fall as set forth in  the accompanying illustration and it Is  inevitable that there be adjustments  necessary to meet varying climates and  conditions. It is in fact freely admitted that  it may not be possible to grow three  gardens exactly as laid out ln the plan  unless there is a very long and benign  growing season.  Actually on this stretch of coast we can  almost count on having just that. When  you can still find swiss chard and seakale  fit to eat In December there is not too  much to complain about as far as the  climate Is concerned.  But the Idea is to get the garden planted  and producing as early as possible in the  Spring, then after a crop is harvested take  a look at the plan and see what vegetables  could go in next.  Hero the gardener will have to exercise  judgment to see is be can go straight to a  heat loving vegetable and if he has an  assurance of a sufficient number of frost  free days to bring a crop to maturity. Here  too is another snag.  Because too early seeding means a  disappointing catch, it would seem smart  to make use of plastic tunnels of warm  ;T caps.io warm theyiewly seeded ground. It  opens up a whole train of interesting  thought.  So you start your Spring with a  selection of those vegetables that your  family likes, leaving enough space for the  regulars like tomatoes that will have to go  in before the crop comes out.  The story is that if such a plan is  followed on even 600 square feet of space,  which seems to be average size of the  family vegetable plot, you can produce  vegetables worth anything between $300  and $600 in value���and all tax free.  It will be noted in the plan that there is  no attempt to grow cheap and space  consuming crops like potatoes.  The article from which this information  is gleaned appeared in the garden section  of the Christian Science Monitor recently.  From where this gardener sits the gardener who wants to follow this plan will  have to study the seed catalogue to  establish the days to maturity of  everything he wants to grow so that he  may be able to plan for the succeeding  crop. Also he is working the land very hard  which is excellent farming so long as he  makes sure that he replaces what he has  taken. The soiling system of dairy farming  perfected in Holland called for continuous  production on a year round basis but the  ground that supplied a crop was immediately nourished with the home  produced manure from the cow barns. Its  the best kind of perpetual motion.  But whatever the limitations, and there  are some, growing ones own food to  whatever degree, is sound economics,  good exercise, and most eminently  satisfying.  STUCK  FOR A GREAT  CHRISTMAS IDEA?

This was the  advice of Federal Environment Minister  John Fraser in a speech delivered to the  Vancouver Chapter of the Association of  Professional Engineers of B.C., Friday at  the Hotel Vancouver.  The speech which was read in Fraser's  absence by Regional Director General of  the Ministry, L.A. Bud Smithers, urged  Professional Engineers as energy planners to look to compact hydro-electric  plants at low-head sites.  Fraser said that Canada could count on  discovering at least 5,000 of these sites.  "We could begin with projects based on  existing water enclosures built originally  for other purposes ��� reservoirs, dams,  and log-head development." recommended'Fraser.  The Minister reported that the Federal  Department of Energy, Mines, and  Resources has been looking at a low-head  system called the Staflo system designed  in Switzerland.  Fraser added that although hydroelectric development is not environmentally flawless it does have some  distinct advantages. One advantage is that  environmental effects from such  development are containable and are not  felt 1000 kilometers downstream. Another  positive factor is that the low-head option  tends to be low cost and on a small scale,  which makes it easier on local ecology.  Fraser also approached the controversial subject of coal.  "Coal is still a four letter word to environmentalists, an energy source with a  bad record. But the more thoughtful environmentalists remember that coal is  energy and that Canada has 100 billion  tons of it, 90 per cent in the Western part of  the country."  The Minister said that this does not  mean "a headlong return to coal" but that  we now must face the challenge of  reducing or removing the environmental  costs of using our substantial coal reserve.  He added that B.C. Professional  Engineers have an opportunity to contribute to this technology through use of  UNCLEMICKS  SHOES  FOR A GREAT  SELECTION OF GIFTS'  *7fa*& yw> fa*. t*4c float (fecrVi'd  /4��*<i 7m ^  Trail Bay Mall, Secholt 885-9838  the coal reserves at Hat Creek.  A third field the Federal government is  researching is the use of forest,  agricultural, and organic wastes  (biomass) as an energy source. Fraser  predicted that in the future biomass could  replace 60 per cent of the oil and gas used  today by the forest industry. The forest  industry is the largest industrial consumer  of petroleum products in the country.  "Each and everyone of us, regardless  of our professional training or our  background must recognize the importance of environmental concerns and  must give full consideration the environmental consequences of his personal  decisions," said Fraser.

Their fathers  would have stayed on land if they had not  been forced to sea by the squat warriors  who slaughtered their children as if they  were rude weeds.  Some who fled never reached the coast,  and at the tip of the mainland lived people  with traits and tongues of the Islanders.  There were two surviving elders who  had walked on the earth of the mainland,  and only one was strong enough to sail  with the sick on their journey to see the  Masah, the healer.  When the warship sailed, the sick  huddled together like cold birds, their  brittle frames twigs beside the warriors''  trunks. Some of them would die on the  voyage, as quietly as if the breeze stopped  to rest, but others would be saved.  Talinzar, the prophet, had foretold in a  trance how they would be touched by a  gentle madman who.could send disease  back to darkness.  Tamir led the black-sailed ship on the  voyage to open sea where there were no  channels or islands or tides. Only a line  Zor, sailed with Tamir, his memory stale  but shaken by every wave, pieces of life  spared, found again with the freshness of  their birth.  They sailed in the light season but even  so, the waves scorned the intruders,  dragging them from course, and though  Tamir saw the stars, he could not follow  them.  Talinzar waited at the Port of Omano,  but the black-sailed ship drifted finally to  Carno, a port to the south, the bodies of the  sick drained, their senses tapped. The  boats of Carno filled the sea and the people  in them shouted and wept in tribute.  In a dream Talinzar saw the sick raise  their arms and knew they had come. By  horse he rode to Lampil at the border of  the plains and found the Masah. Together  the prophets walked through the mountains and when Talinzar fell and his side  bled, the Masah sealed the skin with his  hands, leaving no scar.  As one spirit they walked across the  black sands of Carno, and in the rain the  Masah healed the sick.  Strangely, the name, Masah, did not  mean healer. In the healer's language this  . Barents whose sons and daughters are  allowed to drive the family car under  occasional operator conditions, will  benefit under the non-discriminatory  FAIR Program.  Starting January 1, the Under 25 Single  Occasional Driver rate group is being  phased out completely and adult vehicle  owners will no longer have to pay a higher  premium.  The 54,000 young drivers in this group  will be covered by the Principal Operator's  insurance, although Occasional Operator  limitations still apply.  It's one of a series of changes being  brought about through the Insurance  Corporation's FAIR Program. ��� Fundamental Auto Insurance Rating ��� which  now goes into effect on New Year's Day.  Starting January 1, the Program will  remove Sex and Marital Status as rating  factors in Auto insurance and result in a  decrease of approximately 30 per cent in  the average premium for 215,000 young  male vehicle owners.  FAIR in 1980 will/dso bring about the  first step in a five year pogram to remove  geographic location as a rating factor. As  a result, premiums will increase in some  territories and decrease in others.  The Safe Driving Incentive Grant,  given to Under 25 Single Male vehicle  owners or Principal Operators, will be  discontinued because the FAIR Program  provides greater benefits.  It should be noted the:, Safe Driving  Vehicle Discount will still be in effect in  1980.  "AGE" A YEAR LATER  The removal of "Age" as a rating  factor will take place in 1981 when 55,000  Under 25 females will join the 215,000  young males for reductions in the average  premium ranging up to 25 per cent,  depending upon which vehicle "use"  category they require.  At this point premiums for Third Party  Liability coverage for all drivers in British  Colombia,,will be determined by vehicle  "use" ^- Pleasure Only, Drive to Work or  Business. The only factors considered in  determining premiums for Collision  coverage will be vehicle use and value.  The Safe Driving Vehicle Discount will  still be in effect in 1981, but an Accident  Premium of $100 a year for three years  will be paid by drivers at fault in an accidentia which property damage or bodily  injury, is caused to another person.  The accident Premium recognizes that  the person behind the wheel is responsible  for the safe operation of the vehicle,  whether or not that person is the owner.

Her skin is soft to  my touch, her tiny fingers perfectly formed. Beneatn the hem of tier pretty dress,  dimpled knees peek out, and miniature  toes curl under. As I cuddle her to me in a  gesture as old as motherhood, her long  lashes sweep upward and cornflower blue  eyes stare into mine.  This doll for Angela's Christmas, to be  put under their Christmas tree for a little  grand-daughter who lives far away.  Holding the doll, I am suddenly thankful  that Christmas is still essentially a family  occasion. We hear much about it becoming  too commercialized, but in homes where  children eagerly await the day, the spirit  of the season changes little from year to  year. Christmas has a unifying quality for  us, too. One of the marvels of the season is  that we somehow feel drawn together with  those whom we love, however separated  we are from them by tune or distance.   ���  Christmas began with a family and its  true essence has been preserved by the  family unit, generation after generation.  Our family circle is no longer complete but  on Christmas Eve, how near they all seem  to me. *  To all of you ��� a joyous arid merry,  merry Christmas!-^-. Ann.

Rafe  Mair, Minister of Health, today advised  British Columbians not to be vaccinated  against smallpox unless they are  travelling to countries that require vaccination, certificates.  Some 35 countries still insist that  visitors' be vaccinated, even though the  disease is considered to be non-existent.  The world's last case of smallpox occurred  more than two years ago.  Mair cautioned British Columbians not  to be vaccinated against smallpox unless  absolutely- necessary.  "Since there is a recognized medical  risk associated with smallpox vaccine, I  think it is important that people not  receive it unless it is definitely required by  the country they are visiting,?' the  Minister said.  "In fact, I would go so far as to advise  people to refuse vaccination unless they  plan to visit those countries that still  demand it ��� without medical grounds, I  might add."  Mair said that not all travel agencies  have the current list of countries requiring  vaccination. He urged people planning  overseas trips to check with the local  public health office.  liMiliiilftM, KOWBLUK & CO.  iiliS^ii^ ACCOUNTANTS  ISllill^gMSiRil; C.G.A.

Some people will begin to put on weight.  Food will smell and taste much better  after not smoking for a while and the  appetite will improve; many smokers"  will reach for a snack instead of a  cigarette; the body makes better  utilization of food.  Overweight is a health hazard but not  as serious as smoking. Tackle one problem  at a time. After you have conquered the  cigarette habit, start to learn how to take  in no more calories than your body can use  in a day and you will also conquer the  weight problem.  Breaking the cigarette habit is not  always easy, but the rewards for the victor  will make it worthwhile.  Most everyone will admit that smoking  is bad for their health.  But a smoker also pays for his habit in  tenMof^  j_mseif~ dicHtecT to* by a?r threMnch  cylinder of shredded tobacco leaf. Just as  many smokers have quit the cigarette  habit just to rid themselves of ''tobacco  slavery" as have quit for reasons of  health.  At an initial meeting of a smoking withdrawal clinic, a psychiatrist dumbfounded  the participants by telling them: "Not one  of you really wants to stop smoking,  otherwise none of you would be here now.  You would have stopped smoking long  ago."  He then explained that as long as  smoking was considered attractive in  some way and that giving up involved  sacrifice, the inner conflict which resulted  prevented a person from giving up the  habit.

Spot checks of vehicles travelling into  snow areas will be made during Ihe next  few weeks to see that they are properly  equipped for winter conditions, Transportation and Highways Minister Alex V.  Fraser and Attorney-General Allan  ' Williams announced today.  Fraser has also reminded motorists -  that they can be charged or turned back if  their vehicles do not have winter tires or  are not carrying chains when signs require  them to do so.  This random check of vehicles on the  road will be carried out by the RCMP in  conjunction with the Attorney-General's .  "Counterattack" program for safety of the  travelling public.  Among the highway sections affected  will be the Squamish Highway to Whistler,  the Malahat on Vancouver Island, the  Hope-Princeton, the Fraser Canyon, the  Salmo-Creston, Rogers Pass and a  number, of other stretches often subject to  heavy or regular snow falls.  By posting signs, the ministry is  authorized to prohibit vehicles not  adequately equipped for winter conditions  from being driven or operated on the highways where sustained winter conditions  prevail.  "Many winter accidents are caused by  cars travelling in snow conditions with  inadequate tires," Fraser said. "The  ministry mounts a massive and expensive  winter maintenance and snow clearing  operation every year to make the highways safe but motorists must cooperate by  making their vehicles safe."
