FIVE WEEKS from Saturday will be the night  before Christmas and all through the house  there will be evidence of it. In the pantry and  refrigerator there will be a plentiful supply of  festive food. Perhaps in the dining room the  table will be ready, set with the best linen and  silver, because that is one task that can be done  ahead of time. The living room will.probably  have the brightest of the decorations, perhaps  a tree. Once the children have been coaxed to  bed and to sleep there will be added a pleasant clutter of the bulky toys about which letters are now being written to Santa Claus.  In the midst of this you will be so conscious of the good things of life that you will  wish others were as well content as you are���  for that is one of the blessings of happiness.  We want others to share it. They say misery  loves company but so does happiness, and is a  lot likelier to get it.  At that point anything you have done for  others, if recalled, brings pleasure, rather like  the discovery of more money in the bank than  you expected.  The Christmas Seal Committee is going  to ask you to buy Christmas Seals to help pay  for the prevention of tuberculosis. Neither they  nor you will know exactly whose life you save  or make easier by your gift. There were about  4,700 deaths from tuberculosis in Canada last  year. If we can cut that number by 500 next  year, and another 500 the next year and so on,  we won't know whose life has been saved but  we will know we had a chance to do something  and did it. There are about 15,000 Canadians  spending Christmas away from their families  in sanatoria. When the number is reduced to  14,000, and then to 13,000 and so on down, we  will not know which father or mother of our  acquaintance is at the head of the Christmas  dinner table instead of sitting up in bed with a  tray. But we will know that if we helped in  the prevention of tuberculosis we took a hand]  in someone's happiness���and a fine thought it  is on Christmas Eve, or any other night of the]  year for that matter. ,  So far our own contentment as well as thej|  health of others, let's buy and use Christmas  Seals.

BRITISH COLUMBIA, because of its favorable  climate, will always be a lodestar to attract the seasonal workers of Canada during  the long winter months.  In consequence, this province should be  signalled out by the Federal Government for  special appropriations and public works construction which will provide a measure of relief to those who seek winter haven here.  To that extent we are in hearty accord  with the resolution recently reaffirmed by the  B.C. Command of the Canadian Legion urging  Federal Government action in "Preparing for  the Gathering Storm."  The Legion, and we think rightly so, believes that action should be taken, "First: to  prevent a recurrence of the seasonal unemployment situation which prevailed in B.C. last  winter; second, that wise and overall planning  should be carried put by all governments, federal, provincial and municipal; designed to ensure that in case of a business depression the  people of Canada will not suffer the same conditions which existed from 1930 to 1939."  So far so good, but where we differ from  the Legion point-of-view is that in its laudable  effort to safeguard the future it has adopted  shock tactics and is crying "blue ruin," without���insofar as we can see���any justification.  True, all across Canada there is a tightening of belts. The lush money has been spent,  but this in our opinion represents not a dive  into depression but a return to normalcy.  To conjur up memories of the "hungry  thirties," during this present period of readjustment is asking for trouble. The family  thinking of  buying that  coveted refrigerator,  getting that piano for daughter, or considering  purchasing a home, is likely to pause and thinly  they had better sock their money away.  When the consumer tightens his purse1  strings the chain reaction is catastrophic; mer  chants cannot sell, they in turn cannot bu  from the factories, the factory goes on shor  time, the worker further curtails his buyin  and that adds up to depression.  We agree that governments should prepar  for any eventuality; we agree that somethin  should be done to care for the seasonal influx]  of unemployed in British Columbia and that ii  is a Federal responsibility.

JOURNALISTS AND  COMMUNISTS  British and Belgian journalists'  unions are withdrawing from  membership of the International  Organization of Journalists  whose headquarters in Prague  these unions regard as having  become, in effect, merely a  branch office of the Cominform.  The Belgian journalists' union  has decided not to sponsor the  next Congress of the International Organization of Journalists in Brussels. The British National Union of Journalists is  withdrawing from the organization which it did much to create after the war. It has repeat  edly protested against the persistent misues of the organization for party -political purposes.  MRS.

I haven't  been able to visit her during her  sickness as New Brighton is a  bit too far for me to walk.  jttSSJEUHBBH  WELL, folks, excitement is running high over here at the  possibilities of getting electric  power. Even though the B.C.  Power Commission only asked  for a survey and did not indicate that they would bring over  the power, a petition has already  made the rounds of Gambier  Harbour and New Brighton.  I understand that all the permanent residents with the possible exception of two have signed it. It is hoped that the organizer will take the petition to  West and East bays. I know that  most of the summer folks will  take it, if it is offered.  Mrs Elsie Kingston is home  after spending a few days in  Vancouver with her mother-in-  law.  Mr Allen Bourne made a hurried trip to Vancouver. He went  in   on  the- Sunday  ferry    from  Mr S. J. W. Adkins was in  town for a few days.  Mrs V. Atcheson arrived home  Saturday after visiting her mother in New Westminster.  Mr and Mrs Perry Rathbone  of North Vancouver are visiting  Mr and -Mrs Frank W. Alexander. Mr and Mrs Rathbone are  frequent visitors to Gambier as  they like it very much here.  I guess that "Brad" (W. S.  Bradbury) is a mind reader. At  any rate he has tired of his busman's holiday at home and has  gone to visit Courtenay on Vancouver Island.  Major J. J.

The gunners, their backs to the target, fire  with amazing accuracy by instrument.  p. Training men in the use of modern scientific equipment is a major requirement in Canada's new Army.  Thousands of young men are attending some of the finest  schools in the country, specializing in electronics, radar,  radio and telephone. In addition, there are openings for  clerks, drivers, mechanics and many other trades.  New higher pay, good food and quarters, trades training and the opportunity for advancement make the  Canadian Army Active Force one of the most attractive  careers open to young men today.

RENNIE  ONE again on November 11 we  have remembered those who  gave their lives in two terrible  wars. I was present at the memorial service at the Legion Hall  on Friday.  The short service outside the  hall when the dead were honored by the flag ceremony and the  tributes paid to their memory  by the president of the Legion  branch, Mr Fladger, and the Rev  Mr Bevan of Gibsons Memorial  Church, who gave the address,  was very impressive.  A large representation of the  general public was present to  take part in the service. It is  good to see the interest that is  taken in that memorial service  each year on Remembrance Day,  which we trust will continue  from, year to year and as long  as there is a Legion.  We are glad to report that  the children who had been laid  up with minor sicknesses are all  recovered and little Patsy Hew-  et, who spent 10 days in St.  Paul's Hospital, is' home again  and feeling fine.  Mr and Mrs Hans Hammerick  left on Sundy on the first part  of their journey home to Springfield, Mass., after spending a  very enjoyable time at the coast  here.  There were quite a number of  visitors during the long weekend. Among the numbers going  back on Sunday we noticed Mr  and Mrs Don Poole and their  small son. They had been weekend visitors at the home of Mr  and Mrs  Fred Poole.  During the last week Mrs R.  D. Poole from Caulfield was the  guest of her son and daughter-  in-law, Mr and Mrs. Fred Poole.  Mr E'd Roberts of Vancouver  spent the weekend at the Guest  ing to discuss secession. He took  the chair on that meeting, Sunday, November 13.  Mrs' Lawrence Killam Sr is  spending a few days at her  camp. She is accompanied by  Mrs F. G. Bell. Mrs Bell's husband is Dr F. G. Bell who recently retired from Shaughnessy  Hospital. Dr Bell was assistant  superintendent at Shaughnessy  for quite some time.  My   wife  had   a  letter     from  Mrs   Odell    and    she   says   she  would like to be here. She seems  tired of j the city.  HELLO   again,   folks.   I   hope   I  can get this in in time to add  to the letter I have already written. I hope our Mr Mathews got  home alright, and I am not letting him steal all my thunder,  even if I did arrange for him  to be present at the meeting  held Sunday, November 13, in  the Veterans' Memorial Hall  here. Be that as it may, our  paper was the only one represented. As Mr Mathews did the  reporting I will confine myself  to a few short remarks concerning the meeting. Capt Drage, as  president of Unit 276, Army,  Navy and Air Force Veterans,  opened the meeting and after  making the necessary introductions turned over the chair to  Major John J. Heath, MBE, MC.  Among the visitors was Col Burnett. Our MLA Battling "Batt"  Maclntyre flew down from Powell River for the meeting. I think  our Mr Mathews has arranged  for a full transcript of the meeting to be sent to the paper.  Mr W. S. (Brad) Bradbury has  arrived home from his visit" to  Vancouver Island.  I want to express my thanks  to Mr Bob Hunter of Gibsons  for bringing our Mr Mathews  over. We were mentioned. on the  12 noon newscast today, but I  would like to state here and now  that the gathering at the Memorial Hall on Sunday was only  a representative gathering .as  there were plenty of taxpayers  who could not attend. Taxpayers on Gambier alone must easily number between three and  four hundred. However, the various delegates from Vancouver  are taking around the petition  to be signed. Can't think.of anything else to say except that New  Brighton will be practically deserted for a few days. Will have  to give fuller details next week.  THE COAST NEWS, Monday, Nov. 21, 1949  House.

No sooner  said than done, that's Mr Jackson.  Enjoying a few dajrs in Vancouver was Mrs Betty Williams  with daughter Margaret, visiting friend husband of course and  hating to  leave  him  behind.  Also returning from the city  were Mr and Mrs R. S. Hackett  and Mrs Walter Deane.  We notice that Mrs Bevan is  once again with us, back from  Kamloops staying with daughter and son-in-law Constable  and Mrs Forester.  Had   a  nice   long  letter   from  Anna Neilson. Anna was at the  Sechelt Inn some time ago where  she was very popular. She and  her husband and, daughter Jean  are now on a big ranch in Alberta where Jack is in his glory  with the horses. He has wonderful people to work for and enjoys the outdoor life. Jeannie  will be going to school soon and  wishes to say Hello to all her  little friends here.

A  full evening's entertainment is  planned and it is expected to  have some old time square  dances during the evening. Remember the date���November 30.  It is open house. Captain Andy  Johnson will be master of ceremonies.  We wish to welcome to Sechelt  Mr and Mrs Tom Gory. Tom has  recently taken over the shoe repair business formerly operated  by Mr Eric Knutson for many  years here. We wish Tom success in his business and as he  is well known here and well  liked we are quite sure that he  will keep the old customers and  get many new ones.  .1  '_3  WHEN YOU  ILD  You Will Find Everything for the Builder  LUMBER  WALLBOARDS  SIDING  BRICKS  PAINTS  AT  Sechelt Building Supplies  By H.

GIBSONS NEWS  By E. NESTMAN  THESE mornings I'm getting up  at the crack of dawn, around  6 a.m. . . . boy, and do I hate it,  I always hated getting up in  the  morning,  when I worked a  few years ago as teletype operator, I chose the all-night shift,  so that I didn't have to get up  in the morning . . . well it's  dark at 6 a.m. and it takes me  anywhere from one to two hours  to   get  going.  I debate whether I'll go back  to bed for half-an-hour, and then  I feel I'd better stay up, as it's  harder to get up the second time.  Oh, well, there's not much I can  do about it, but I sure do groan  to myself all day. In fact I'm  feeling very sorry for myself  this a.m. Received a letter from  our friend Helen, she took the  dog Purch'y, no- doubt you remember that nice little chow  she had, it was a lovely little  fellow. Well, she tells me it was  poisoned, that certainly would  make anyone ill for she took such  care of that dog, and it was  more intelligent than some humans, I always thought. I liked  it .very much myself, and was  sure sorry to hear of its untimely end. Her birds are doing fine,  and she has a nice little home  in Dresden, Ont. Very flat country there, she says, and grand  for hikes, ��� no hills, but I bet she  misses this scenery just the  same. She is now Mrs Helen  Gibson. We hope she will come  back and visit some day in the  near future, and we wish her all  the best in  her new life.  They tell me there's a new  boss coming up around December 1. Well I hope we can get  organized and get this paper  back where it used to be, it's  quite a grim feeling to see something you are interested in suffering from malnutrition, and we  hope this will be the pick up. it  so badly needs right now. I think  it would be badly missed if it  did fold up. It is taken so much  for granted that one doesn't  stop to think of the many people who go to making up the  staff of .this, little local paper.  ��There.7are ^many^whorare,i^ak-,  ing that little extra money with  their efforts, to you, and you,  it may not amount to very much,  but it does take time and effort  to keep you all posted. It's a  pleasure besides being a chore  and I think there is many a person even away from here, who  subscribes to the paper to keep  up with the local news. You'd  be surprised how many do this,  then they are in touch with  births, deaths and marriages of  people they have known for so  many years. There is a need in  every community for a good  paper, it can be an instrument  for so many things. It's uses are  endless, so I sincerely hope we  are going to be able to carry on,  bigger and better than ever. If  you can't afford a year's subscription to the paper, take three  months, give it a try, it's worth  it. For if you have anything you  wish printed, you will find it  there, if you will take the trouble to give it to your local correspondent. So we wish our new  editor all the best.

Our member Batt Maclntyre  and his wife attended one of  Formby's concerts in Vancouver,  and telling us about the difficult time George had in trying  to get off the stage after the  show, he said he came back and  took encore after encore, finally,  he said to the people, "We had  heard of the wonderful receptions given to visitors by Canadians, and decided to come and  find out, we had a wonderful  time all the way across Canada,  and of course, collected lots of  your fine Canadian dollars, we  hope to go through the States  and collect some of those fine  American dollars, but we know  that when the boat docks at  Southampton, Sir Stafford Cripps  Bowen Island  By   PEARL   PUNNETT  THE COAST NEWS, Monday, Nov. 21, 1949  _��  O  MR AND Mrs Alf Dorman and  Miss Nancy Dorman were here  for a few days last week, and on  the 17th Nancy leaves for Portland, Oregon, to be a nurse at  one of the hospitals there.  A service was held at the  Cenotaph on Remembrance Day,  the Rev Harry Morrow conducted. Quite a number of people  turned out in spite of the show-���  ery and windy morning. Jim  McKirdy sounded the Last Post  after the two minutes silence,  and Mrs McLeod, president of  the WA to Canadian Legion 150  placed a wreath in memory of  the men who sacrificed their  lives.  Mrs K. Rodger has a friend  from Nova . Scotia, Miss Norah  Stewart, staying with her for a  few months. They have been  friends since their school days.  On Saturday, November 12,  the WA to the Canadian Legion,  put on a whist drive, bingo and  dancing.  There was a big crowd, the  prizes for whist going to top lady  Mrs Eva Rogers; consolation,  Mrs Peter Wood; top gentleman,  Mr Arthur Pollard and consolation, Mr E. Brewer.  The ladies served very nice  refreshments and the evening  ended with dancing.  will be waiting at the wharf, to  take all those nice dollars from  us, but we won't mind that. I've  told the 'Old Woman' that when  I die, I want to be cremated, and  my ashes placed in an envelope,  addressed to Sir Stafford, with  the inscription, 'Now you've got  the bloomin'  lot!'"  Well, at least they can still  retain their sense of humor,  which is about the only thing  that will keep anyone going in  difficult times. Too bad more  people don't remember that, it  certainly helps. Wonder if the  road department is going to put  a handrail up that long flight  of golden stairs in front of the  tonsorial emporium. Jeeps, one  'will siif^ have"to"be strictly oir  the beam to make it up and  down without any trouble.  We sure had a variety of  weather here today, this morning it started out cloudy, and a  little rain, then about noon, a  real Squamish blew up, about  an hour later, it was pouring  rain, an hour after that the sun  was trying to shine, and then  it turned nice and mild, no wirid,  no rain, and the sun shining over  the hills down the sound, was a  real picture. Certainly not like  a day in November, more like  a  capricious  April day.  Just a little sidelight on the  educational facilities here, power  off today for couple of hours,  one of high school rooms unable  to keep going, no lights, no windows to speak of, so, high school  students had the day off. With  some real plate windows, this  would not happen. The secretary  of Board tells me that they are  spending far too much money in  very necessary repairs, to obsolete schools, and rooms, nothing  that can be done about it. Seems  an awful pity.

WELL, here we are again. I've  been delightfully busy with  Armistice programs and of  course have not had the usual  opportunity to go out and gather  the unusual news. However, over  the past few days we were quite  busy with meetings and last  minute touches to programs and  decorations. The meeting referred to here was the community  effort being put forward by our  friends and neighbors and a  fairly good account will be found  on another page.  The usual chartered bus took  many people to Sechelt and the  memorial service on November  11, and it is most gratifying to  find that such little effort can  bring so much pleasure and happiness. The sincerity of our president; the simple, dignified words  of the president of the Ladies'  Auxiliary, coupled with the more  professional eloquence of the  priest and the Legion chaplain,  lent that warmth and comfort  so much needed in these days of  uncertainty and chaos.  The lack of numbers in the  Cubs and Guides choir was quite  unnoticed, they say so beautifully. They sang very beautifully the hymn, "Peace in Our  Time, O Lord," and that item  was received with so much favorable comment that I am sure  it was worth all the time that  their leaders gave to  it.  And in a lighter vein may I  mention that the same bus transported the same people to the  same hall for evening social. The  event of course was a huge success and special mention should  be made of the services of Jack  Jervis of Roberts Creek whose  jovial wisecracks and unusual  talent as a ban joist captured the  hearts of all present.  Mrs Jessica Thompson of Wilson Creek added very considerably to the success with her  charming voice. The pity is, we  the public do not have the pleasure of hearing Jessica often  enough. Andy Johnston who  sang "O Hilda" teamed up with  Jack MacLeod and with their  two violins and Mrs Turner at  the piano, played for the square  dance, which Al Jackson called.  Al also gave a very ple~asing  rendition   of   "Rose   of  Tralee."  Mrs   Ritchie   Sr   and   Gladys,  with   the   old   reliable     George  Homebuilding Has Always  Depended on Mining  Nails, flashings, plumbing, wiring, latches,  locks, hinges, heating equipment of all kinds,  cement, bricks, paints and fireproof shingles,  are some of the items made either wholly or  in part from mineral products.  Thus mining, the act of winning metals and  materials from the earth, is essential to our  present day mode of living.  British Columbia produced over one hundred and fifty million dollars' worth,of mineral  _  products in 1948.  For information on prospecting and mining  in British Columbia write:  VICTORIA, B.C.

He was an  old timer here for many years  and was loved by all.  Then Wag Poulton died suddenly in his 31st year. His family lived here for many years.'  Our deepest sympathy is extended to both families.  Clint Nicholson who was seriously hurt in the mines, is coming along slowly but surely. He  will be in hospital for a long  time to come, but after all, it's  by a miracle he is here at all.  Mrs Haimes is home again following an operation.  Mrs O'Kell is up keeping house  for her son Bill.  The North Star Explorers had  their initiation on Sunday afternoon, conducted by Rev Henderson. It was a very impressive ceremony. Most of the mothers and  friends turned out. Tea and refreshments were served.  Was in Vancouver recently.  Wesley's aunt and cousin died  within three days of each other.

By the way George fooled us  all here when he changed his  mind about spending a holiday  in Vancouver. He lived in 'Frisco  about 27 years ago so he suddenly thought he would like to  take a run down to see how much  the place had altered���he's still  talking about it.

However, there  is nothing wrong , that a few  days' rest won't cure. We are  happy to congratulate her on her  escape from injury or worse.  Mr and Mrs Dowling have left  on a business and pleasure jaunt.  They expect to be in Vancouver  for about aTweek.  Mrs Luxton, who stayed at the  Rivett's .summer camp at Davies Bay, has at last moved into  her own home which was erected  by Al Gibbons about a mile past  the Wilson Creek Garage. Her  daughter Sonia spent the holiday .weekend with her mother,  returning to Vancouver and  work on Monday morning.  Glad to see John Browning  down at the concert. I think  John goes regularly once a year  to the Legion Hall.  We are glad to report that Mrs  Levitt is improving although the  condition of her foot prevents  her from getting too much exercise. She is definitely on the  mend and expects to be about  soon.  For the benefit of his friends  at Selma Park and district, may  I say that Mr Ted Norburn can  be seen any morning taking his  usual exercise on the beach road.  His broken leg has mended quite  well and all that is needed now  is a little more strength.

BASKETBALL  DANCE  A very successful dance under  the auspices of the Basketball  Club was held Saturday. Winner  of the blankets raffled, was Mrs  Weir of Gower Point.  Speeders, take note, our  local  arm of the law has informed me,  he is going to enforce the speed  law in the village, so  it's up to  you.     The   parking   law  too     is  definitely to be  enforced.  After  all  the  laws  are   on the books,  and the general idea is that they  should be enforced. While on the  subject of speeders, if a few of  the mamas around this area don't  take a little more care of some  of  those   very  small  ones,   who  are riding around the main street,  on the kiddie car, and bike, I'm  afraid they are in for a tragedy  one of these days, some trucker  who  can't  see the  child  behind  the   truck,   is  going  to  back  up  on them, or when the little one  comes out between cars, the taxi  coming   down   the   road,     can't  stop on a dime, even though his  brakes   are   in   good   shape,   he  hasn't a chance. In the event of  a serious accident in such cases,  it is my opinion, that the  onus  should   be   strictly   on   the   parent.     When  little   ones,   around  two years of age are allowed to  ride around the main street, and  around garages where trucks and  cars   are   parked,     then     it     is  tempting   fate   and   rather   hard  on the  nerves    of    all    parties  around the area.  So how  about  that,   mothers,   before   it   is   too  late? In fact, it's later than you  think.  MACINTYRE   VISIT  Under the auspices of the Liberal Assn. of Gibsons, Mr B. M.

He was also successful  in bringing those busy Ministers  out to many small places, some  I'm sure they didn't even know  existed. Wonderful education for  them, say we.  Anyway, ''Batt" is doing a  very fine job, and he is certainly 100 percent for his riding. He  did tell us that Mr Carson, has  planned a road program, that  will include "double flushing"  the roads of Mackenzie riding,  which will be good news, and  that we can expect a paving appropriation each year from now  on, which is also very good news.  Mr Maclntyre stressed the,.fact  that he felt the hospitalization  increase was all wrong, but realizing the tangled situation as it  now exists, feels that something  will have to be worked out, to  save and avoid the hardship now  being imposed on the veteran,  and the widow. He feels that it  is a federal job.  After refreshments were served, a group of three songs were  sung by Mrs A. Marten, accompanied by Marge Poole, a social  chat with folks in audience,  wound up a social evening. Mr  Maclntyre left for Powell River  in morning.  A whist drive and drawing  for raffle was held Monday night  at Gibsons, in aid of the Catholic Church. A very fine table of  home-cooking, also for sale by  the ladies, was on display. Results of the raffle, Mrs Alice  Morrison, Sechelt, won the fine  coffee table, Mrs Curran, Half  Moon Bay, won the breakfast  set, and Mary Walsh of Granthams, the electric toaster.  Telling the Briton once more  to tighten the belt recalls the  protest of the burlesque comic  in the ardent vamp's embrace:  "If I get any closer, kid, I'll be  behind you."  B. C.

The trip  on the guy wire, while not  enough to crash the plane, threw  him out-of-line with the narrow  road, and a wing-tip grazed the  high bank as the plane headed  toward Lund. This caused a  ground-loop (abrupt about-face)  and brought the ship to a stop  in the ditch, its wing's a total loss.  There were no cars on the road  at the moment, and it is fortunate  that children, at noon recess  from the nearby Wildwood  School, were not on the road. The  plane had wheel brakes, but  there is not enough braking surface on the small wheels to bring  a ship to an abrupt stop.  Mrs Jacob Andersen housed  the men while they had coffee  and reported their mishap to  relatives and officials. They left  on the 3 p.m. QCA plane for  Vancouver; the plane will be  shipped to the city for repairs;  it is the only one owned by the  Port Hardy group.  MORE  ABOUT ...
