X *. ���  i  The 46 delegates representing  17 boards were unanimous in  supporting the resolution forwarded by the Sechelt Peninsula Trade Board.  Mr. W. H. Aggett and .Mr. Wm.  Morrjson were welcomed to the  meeting as the first representatives from this area.  Mr. H. Jarmari, secretary of  the Associated Boards, spoke to  the resolution*.  "I have never in my life driven  oyer a road in worse condition."  This in itself is enough to back  up our statements regarding the  deplorable conditions now existing.-: ������   -XX'���;>"''���.-  -'The repair work that was  started last week will be but a  fraction of the worknecessary  to: make the roads even passable.  "They are certainly in no condition-to draw the tourist trade  that will so surely be a large part  of the future of the districts from  Gibsons to Pender Harbor, if and  when the car ferry materializes."  The representatives report that  the meeting was, of the same opinion as ourselves here- on the  peninsula; Roads are pur primary concern.;  ��� ���_���,���  Serving- a Progressive and Growing  Area on B.

The January meeting will be  held'on the third Monday, as  usual.  Business of the evening included a discussion of the National  Film Board Pictures. The question arose as to pictures for other organizations of the district.  After some discussion liha.  meeting decided that the P.T.A.  should maintain its present relationships with the National  Film Board, and keep its jurisdiction over the Basic Program pictures. However, an operator and  pictures, either of an entertaining or an educational nature,  will be provided by the P.T.A.  for any other local organization  desiring them.  * Cocoa for school lunches came  in for discussion, also. The venture doesn't seem to have the  support this year that it had last,  and not so many pupils are taking advantage of this opportunity  to have a hot drink with the  noon lunch.  The possibility of getting a  dentist at Sechelt was discussed.  The man coming into that territory would want to be sure of  enough business. There is a possibility that the school and preschool dental clinic business  would induce a dentist to settle  there.  , AThej .r^t,;:pf :7the;,7ineeting7. was;;..  v devoted to discussion of the Elementary School concert for  Thursday afternoon, and the  High School party for Thursday  evening.   ;  Thanks For  Little Churches  Thank You God: For little  churches  In simple country-sides,  Where the voices of all Your  creatures  May blend, in thanks, at Eventide.

In answer to a query from the  Board on the authenticity of a  rumour that the "Princess Mary*'  was apout to bie "taken out of  service tp this ,pp the company said that "no such action  is contemplated at the present  time."  The Board had also taken up  local complaints against the CNR  dining saloon service, wherein  residents claimed they were  denied meals on the trip to Vancouver.  Merry Christmas!  SINCE this is the last issue for the old year we, the  staff and management of the "Coast News" wish  to say a sincere "thank you" to our faithful readers  and advertisers and to our correspondents ��� without  whom there just would not be a "News".  For your patience through our years of growing  pa Ins,- for the same patience extended again to us  when we lost the guiding hand of Ernie Pearson at  Sechelt; for the prompt renewals and Jcind things said  about us (there are brickbats too, and they help sometimes) we are deeply appreciative.  We like to feel that^we have had a part in building the future of this Peninsula: to feel that we have  been of some assistance to the V.O.N., the Red Cross>  the Boards of Trade and to all the people and causes  that have needed a helping hand from time to time.  The Coast News is endeavoring to voice your  needs/whether it be for the much needed roads, the  ambulance, the markers for the sand bar outside Davis  Bay, the footpath for pedestrians, the road signs warning vehicles of school zones, or the new wharves or  repairs to bridges.  Let us have your ideas, we can only succeed with  your support and the measure^ of our success is in that  support.  And now . . . as we started out to say "HAPPY  NEW YEAR" to all.

It had a real touch of the frozen north last last week, the day  on which it really snowed in the  Landing, more people fell, Mrs.  Crowhurst was about the heaviest hit, she fell near Shell garage, cut her head, and was a real  casualty. I fell down on the main  street, and I think about every  other person I met that day had  a fall. It sure makes you feel  foolish to lose your balance and  go down. There's not a thing you  can do, just go down. Oh well,  its all in a life time I-guess, but  sure hope this doesn't hang ar-*  ound very long, trucks sure having a grim time getting around.  They tell me they are doing  some work on the highway again. Well well, Happy day. Do  you think our loud weeping and  wailing really reached their  ears, ~or what.

As we read again the familiar  words and phrases, we understand, each in his own way, the  spiritual meaning of the Feast of  Christmas. We hear again the  song of the angels���the message  of peace and good will. The message that would banish hatred  and inspire love of God and our  neighbour. May the true peace  of Christ enter into your hearts  and homes this Christmas and  remain with you always.  F. R. O'Brien,  St.   Mary's   Church,  Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish  Gibsons, B.C.  Anglican Vicarage  The manner of the entry of  the Messiah upon earth 2000  years ago was so unexpected  and contrary to human expectations. Ever since, strange as it  may seem, the world's highest  honour has been paid to a Babe  born in a manger. ^This, the  most wonderful story ever told,  so simple in its. setting, yet so  transcendently divine, still compels world-wide attention. When  the story was first told, St. Luke  says, ".All.. they that heard it  wondered". Humanity has ever  since wondered at it, and in  heart and. soul, has gone to Bethlehem to consider the strange  thing whigt came to pass there  2000 years ago.  Christmas  stands  for   Christ;  His conception of man, His revelation of God. It stands for the  Incarnation, and the   hallowing  ~*tithuman relations that follows  from it. In the Birth of the Saviour focussed all the best of the  ages- which went before it; since  then all the best we have has  radiated from it. It changed the  course of history: it marked a  new chronology, B.C. to A.D.,  changing the course and destiny  of mankind. As humanity developed through the Christian  centuries deeper truths and fuller divine realities have been  found in the Manger of Bethlehem. The fulfilment of the  Angelic message, "Glory to God  in the highest, on earth peace,  goodwill towards men" has been  delayed by the power of evil, but  it can never be destroyed. Some  day it will come forth in all its  fulness, and the Kingdom of  God will be established upon  earth. In the meantime faithful  human hearts will continue to  echo its wish, and to receive its  blessings.  Rev. H. U. Oswald  Anglican  Vicarage,  Gibsons, B.C.

Phone Gibsons 53  St John's Church  "His name shall be called  "Wonderful"���-Isaiah   9:   6.  "Thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people  from their sins." Matthew 1:  21.  What we have most to fear  in the religious observance of  Christmas is that it should become perfunctory and formal ob^  servance. We treat it as an event  in human annals, and forget that  it was the great manifestation of  God.  His name shall be called "Wonderful". There are other names  that our Lord had given to Him  before His wonderous birth in  Bethlehem in the long ago.  Looking down the ages centuries  before His birth the prophet  Isaiah saw Has day and wrote  that the government would rest  upon His shoulder;  and    wrote  "And his name shall be called  Wonderful. Counsellor, The  Mighty God, The Everlasting  Father, The Prince of Peace".  And He is all of the names that  have been given to Him. We need  not be told how wonderful He is  in manifestation to those who  love Him. As we contemplate  His condescension leaving the  glory that He had with the Father before the world was, and  coming down to a sin���cursed  earth who does not find his soul  filled with wonder and lost in  love and praise? and as counsellor to His Church. His wisdom  is unerring and His judgments  unfailing. He guides us with His  counsel. He leads, He teaches,  He restrains. What shall we say  of that other name He bears,  "The Mighty God".  Here we must "put off our  shoes from off our. feet for the  place whereon we stand is holy  ground". The Mighty God, the  Great Creator, the One Who was  before all things and by Whom  all things consist. Look around  you, - look above you, look beneath, look where you will���the  marvellous order and beauty of  this world (even in its fallen  state) was all made by Him our  Saviour,   the  Mighty   God.  The Everlasting Father: This  is also part of His wonderful  name. From everlasting to ever-:  lasting He is God. There never  was a time when He was* not  God, though for a short spacey  while He wrought out our redemption, He laid His glory by,  and took upon Himself our nature  that He might redeem us from  sin.  And then He is the Prince of  Peace.  In a world rocked by tumult  and strife harassed by wars and  rumours of wars what a name to  bear, The Prince of Peace, the  One who will make wars to  cease. At His birth in Bethlehem  the angels sang of peace on earth  and good will among men. That  is His purpose. Let us watch and  pray as we see the day approaching.  Join all the glorious names  Of wisdom, love and power,  That mortals ever knew,  That angels ever bore,  All are too mean to speak His  worth.  Pastor W. Elliott, St. John's  Davis Bay and Sechelt.  Church oi the Holy  Family  IT   WAS     Johnny'is     birthday^  Johnny's mother planned a little party for him. Many friends  came bringing presents. There  were presents in every kind of  ���fancy wrapper one could imagine, red, green and white, all tied  with ribbons and bright stickers.  In a short time the room was  bursting with dazzling colors.  And, thdf'e was such noise and  confusion, and such 'simulated  good spirits everyone was carried away with the exuberance  of the occasion. There were  handshakes and handclasps, and  loud voiced congratulations. Soon  all were exchanging their gifts  with one another, strangely enough, the very presents they had  brought for Johnny.  Off to one side stood the little  lad whose birthday it,was. He  was entirely forgotten in this  burst of fine good fellowship. No  doubt he was a little saddened  by it all. Certainly he was confused. After all, whose birthday  was it?  *   Christmas  is  the  birthday  of  Christ. We    celebrate    it    with  .the. with" p"^pU_. ^ff$f$!^f$f0I$f$l0f$f$f$f$T$f$f$1#f$f$f$f^f$f  i  _��  i  I  i  ���m  w.  w.  ���,i<?  'V-  ���iri  ��  ���v>.  I  ft  ft  s  s  mighty entertainments, innocent  and otherwise. In general we fill  the day and our own hearts with  suoh activity there is no room  left for God.  It is not the burden of this  message to condemn legitimate  pleasures on Christmas, but only  to pose the question, Whose  birthday is it?  Christmas is a religious festival and the true spirit of  Christmas must necessarily be a  supernatural one. Surely the day  oh which Christ was born should  be marked with prayer both public and private. For prayer is the  most ennobling of all human  acts wherein the creature converses with his Creator and  thereby renders to God a debt.  Christmas is the birthday of  the Prince of Peace. How sadly  do we need peace in this the  cruelest of all centuries. We shall  never bring peace either to our  own hearts or to the world by  turning away from, or, ignoring  our God. "Unless the Lord keep  the city, the guard keeps watch  in vain" Psalm 126.  May I extend to the Coast News  and its readers my best wishes  for  a  Merry  Christmas  and    a  Pentescostal  Tabernacle  Every gift you receive this  Christmas will express love  and perhaps sacrifice. Sometimes  we are restricted in our giving to  relations and intimate friends,  but God's love knows no boundaries.  "For God so loved the world  that He gave His only begotten  Son".  May we who have accepted  God's priceless Gift as our personal Saviour not be guilty of  festive orgy nor worldly celebrations but with heartfelt gratitude, humbly bow before the  Christ of Bethlehem presenting  as the wisemen their gifts, our  lives, ambitions and purposes  unto Him whose birthday we  remember. $  We unite in sending you our  warmest  Christian  greetings.
