BILL SUTHERLAND  Editor, The Coast News  l       . ������   ���  ���  I KNOW a little boy who wakes  up in the morning  and looks  | out the window, his eyes sparkling with hope. He  is  only two  jj and  something,   but   he   eagerly  watches   every   morning.   Sometimes  he  can give  a glad little  .chuckle and look up to his mouther   with   that   look   of   having  discovered . something wonderful,  . before he turns back to the win-  ;d0W. ' y  "Good     morhin',     sun.    Good  mornin'  sun."  His  eyes   sparkle  Iwhen he  says it. He is glad to  phave made the  discovery again.  Such  is  the  way I  feel  as  I  drive along that stretch of blacktop leaving Sechelt on the way  to  Pender Harbour.  Just before  coming to the too short piece of  ^good   road,   a   quick   glimpse   is  j offered of the sea. This is one of  ithe nicest surprises on a highway  pi scenic surprises.  The ocean is-,viewed through a  irame of boughs.

Like the small  jjboy, I find each renewal as wonderful as the  first  exhiliarating  discovery.  I'm afraid to get out  .of the car and walk toward the  fedge of the road. There may be  a house or something that would  spoil the completeness.  |   Selma   Park   is   another   spot  jfchat always appeals to me. Even  when it's  raining  it  feels  nice.  JThe sea is so very close and never  angry there. It may be wild just  a  few  yards   away  but  just   at  that  particular   spot,   when  you  kurn  over the  straight away  at  Selma Park, it seems to be  airways on its good behaviour.  'i Looking over toward the shoreline of Trail Island you can see  'the waves cresting white as they  ��� break  against  the  rocky beach.  The black-green of the trees only  adds to the scene. There is some-  , thing mysterious about the island  'when it is stormy on the water.  One watches, with baited breath.  \ as a full rigged schooner,   with  ilong.,.pointed prow, comes sailing  \proudly out from behind the island.   If  you   peer  through   the  spray thrown up by the "bone in  her teeth",  you  can  see a one-  legged man standing, proud  and  alone on the foredeck while above  and behind him,  a  black,  torn,  sinister flag  tosses   defiantly  in  the wind.  1    Suddenly, the great ship heaves  (Continued on Page 8)  oney Booster     SltOW  aiftd  FrOSt  Added  To Travelling Hazards  SELMA   PARK  ���   More     than  $215 was raised by Selma Park  Community Centre at the bazaar  held recently.  Two dolls were the prizes in  a draw won by Mrs Osborne of  Sechelt and Miss Mills, Selma  Park. The cake made and donated by Mrs J. Mowatt was won  by Mrs T. Dean, West Sechelt.  The plum pudding was won by  Mrs H. Neal.  Of considerable help toward  raising the fine sum of money  were donations from the T. Eaton  Company, Woodwards Ltd., and  the Hudson's Bay Company.  Members of the Centre would likp  to thank all those who donated  time and. labor so generously to  the'success of the fair..  A children's Christmas Party  is slated for December  28.  Harry G. Clay  Passes Suddenly  GIBSONS  lost  one of its finest  citizens in the sudden passing  of veteran real estate man, Harry G.  Clay.  Mr Clay was a familiar figure  on the streets throughout the  Peninsula. Services were held  Saturday in Vancouver. He leaves  two daughters, Mrs Lillian  Schutz of Gibsons and Mrs D.  Gerow, Vancouver.  SNOW AND freezing cold laid its binding hand on the Sechelt  Peninsula this week.  Trucks and  automobiles slid  and  skidded their way to work.

It has always  been our fond hope to take a holiday during Christmas. It has  been many long years since we have been able tb cater to this  longing and wish. While we are on the subject it may be politic  to recall the fond hopes and desires of many of you who would  like to do the same.  The urge is something along the same line as the yen to  go fishing in the summer time. Everyone has it but few have  the opportunity to indulge. This paper would like to publish���  honest. But on top of being a holiday there is also the little  matter of advertisers faking a bit of holiday during that time  also. It could be that that has something to do with us not  printing during the Holiday Week.  Your Coast News will be back with all the gossip, Sunday, January 8.  has been swamped with Christmas mail.

The orchestra was under direction of Miss  M.  Maclntyre.  Junior members of the choir  made their first appearance in  surplices. Their sweet, young  voices were very effective in the  carols and solo work.  The Reverend H. V. Oswald  and Reverend C. R. Harbord took  the service. Mr Oswald expressed  his thanks to the orchestra and  choir for the fine work and effort put into the program.  This 'n That  HAVE YOU ever tried to write  a column of news, and you  don't know where to start? The  news is slim, and you have so  much to do that you don't know  just where to go to get any. My  first grandchild came home yesterday, and it was like old times,  up be-times in the night getting  the little one fed, it's so tiny it's  almost unbelievable, that they do  grow up. An interesting little  note about our "Baby", it has two  great grandma's, right in this  little village here. It's quite a  noteworthy situation we think,  maybe there are others around.  We would like to hear from them.  With this event, an dXmy new-  teeth, jeeps, I'm so fir behind  with Christmas doings that I  haven't even got a Christmas  card out yet, I hope people will  understand, it's gonna be one  mad rush, when I get myself pulled together. The things I'm gonna forget to do, the people that  I hope I don't overlook. Anyway  folks if I do, it's not because I  mean to, it's just that everything  has happened in the last week or  so and I don't know whether I'm  coming or going.  Gone into hospital in Vancouver, Mrs R. Coleridge of Gower  Point. A Christmas party will  be held by Canadian Legion for  Legion children age> one to ten  years, Dec. 29, in Legion Hall.  Mrs Jenny Clay has gone into  hospital today. It is believed she  will undergo an operation.  Art and Meleata Denike are  visitors in our fair community. A  veteran, travelling show team,  they were featured on the Ontario Farm Station, CKNX, the  only barn dance show of its  kind. They and their daughter  Gail Rose are staying with their'  aunt, Mrs Malyea and cousins,  Bill, Roy and Harold Malyea.  By the time this is in print, it  will be the Holy Season of Christmas and all of the tearing around  will be over. It will be a time to  sit down and think of many  things.

You  hope the nautical term is the  right one. Slowly the big ship  heads into the west and picks up  speed as it passes Sechelt on the  inside passage.  In seconds more we pull into  Smugglers Cove and there all  your dreams come true. There,  are. mysterious arms and islets,  and deep, dark green pools and  places where boxes can be buried  'neath the overhanging branches.

Agent for  9  JJ  JO  9  FROM THESE snow-tinged islands, snuggling  close to the friendly haven of Pender  Harbour, then on the flat and scalloped plain  of the Squamish, in fact, wherever The Coast  News .brings tidings of your neighbor, there  will  dwell  the true spirit  of Christmas.  From towering spruce tip to cratered hole  on this great Peninsula, wherever the word  is spoken, the song���the pean of Christmas  will ring loud and friendly. For, to us, the  thought of Christmas is even greater and  more something within that it could ever be  in the concrete cities.  There is something grand and fine about  our land; something which make a lump, in  your throat when you travel our highway  winding through the great trees as, friendly  in their powerful size, they press close to the  roads and enfold, even embrace you with  their   fragrant  selves.  Only folks who love the trees can know  them to be friends. Only they who stand by  the surging surf can know the proud well of  feeling which assures you that even the waves  belong.  So, with Christmas in our minds and the  bigness of nature at our door; comes a better  understanding of that Christian feeling; a  greater longing to help the other fellow. A  better closeness with the Man who started this  season   1949 long years ago.  Ringed in by mountains, we of the Peninsula are lucky. We can see around us the  proud handiwork of God. We know he is  proud of these things, so grand and true are  they. So, without petty fear and jealousy, and  with such monuments to so wide a vision as  our  background,   our  minds  are  forged.  Let us be happy that'we are of the Peninsula. . Praises of fullness should ring out from  our hearts, praises of thankfulness. We are  the lucky ones. During this festive season let  us recount our blessings. Number them jealously one by  one.  Thankful are we to live in this great land.  And, as we bow our heads in subjugation to  Him alone to whom we ever bow, let us shout  to the top of the world.  Merry Christmas, World. May you walk  in the shade of the great trees. May you  hearken to the roaring sea. Then walk in  pride���with God.

These are authentic cases, approved by the  Vancouver branch of the Red  Cross. The one exception is to  help provide a Christmas party  for the hard luck, infant daugh  ter of John Ketola.  Sorry to read of Doctor Hugh's  illness. The residents of Gambier  Island join me in wishing him a  speedy recovery.  Al Kingston and Jim Strachan  left for a few day's visit in Vancouver.  Residents of Gambier are  wondering just what "40 Years"  is trying to do. I am being asked  continually who he or she is,  and, what is behind all the moaning and ranting. I have my  doubts as to "40 Years" being  able to do what is apparently his  or her intention. I have yet to  hear of any resident of Gambier  getting resentful of the people  of the Peninsula, except "40  Years".  All subscribers to the Coast  .News 6h the island, have requested me to wish Mr and Mrs  Harry Winn, our local switchboard operators, and also Fred  Feeney and his crew, a very  Merry Christmas. Our thanks for  a year of very courteous service.  tf  &  s*  w  s?  fn  Si  B��  $  B?  a?  w  SS?  _*  {#  5.  i  9i'  eason s  Wishes  To All Our  Patrons  is the Sincere Feeling of  5c-10c-15c STORE  I  v  -I  ���j  Gibsons  ���������������  45*  45*  ���������������  45*  45*  ���������������  45*  45*  ������>������  45*  ���������������  ���������������  45*  ���������*���  45*  ���>������>���.  45*  ���������������  GST*  ���������������  o  45*  ��� �����������  45*  :..9  45*  ���������*���  45*  45*  ������������O  45*  ������������  Extending our true wishes  for a Merry Christmas to  all of our friends.  n  BURNS & JACKSON  SAWMILL  Wilson Creek  B.C.  >_��|  ii  ^!f$f(;(ff��f9?��!4f{$!O{$;(!$?O?OfOf(!lf(?Of0ffft  ?!  n't  if  ���ii  I  1 SEASON'S GREETINGS  1  s?  5?  w  SS?  i  From  e Totem  ��  If From'  HILL'S MACHINE SHOP  GIBSONS ,,  Comes Sincere and Heartfelt  XMAS and NEW YEAR  GREETINGS  ii  &  SS?

You do a very good job of  looking after the young ones at  Christmas, and I have been wondering if you would be willing  to take all mothers under your  wing too.  X  We  don't ask  for money. We  Understand, so well, the December financial    routine . . . each  year's  resolve  to  budget  wisely  and each year's non-adherence to  jthat budget.   February  wouldn't  |fe the same without the feeling  ���at  being   out   of   the -Christmas  ted  ...   or   the  resolutions  to  IJtart shopping in July. No, Santa,  fjive don't ask for money.  | We don't ask for physical help.  fife are experts at picking up the  'hristmas trees that have fallen  jnder   the   eager   onslaughts   of  roung decorators . . . even unto  p.e  fourth   and  fifth  time   .   .   .  .nd we know how to replace decorations fourteen times after the  Original effort has  been shifted.  lye don't even need help to tell  l^hich   ten   presents   under   the  ee  must  be  removed,  because,  lieir   unwrapping   would   reveal  ontents  in  a state  a little less  Xian new. We can re-wrap partis in such a way that no one  ould suspect that the youngest  iember of the family is destined  )  become   a   customs  inspector  iss).  |,We don't ask for toys. Never  fould we ask for toys. That is  |,ways taken care of quite ade-  iiately. You see, we spend from  ecember 25 to the following De-  fember   25,   falling  over    bikes,  fr.  trikes, wagons and roller-skates  belonging to our own and other's  children. Reassembling thousands  of puzzles; crawling under beds  to rescue marbles, tinkertoys and  missing, cars; scraping plasticine,  crayons, and paints off floors and  windows accounts for a fair percentage of our time. Putting dolls  and teddy bears to bed and getting them up is extra, but inevitable. Taking into consideration the thousand and one things  that they involve we don't ask  for toys.  We don't ask for Books or music. By the dawn of the day we  have no minds to improve and  our ear-drums have long been  shattered by top volume outpourings of carols and music heralding your arrival.  We don't even ask for quiet.  We are usefl to the increased ferocity of sound . . . doors banged  more forcefully, young tempers  more quickly displayed . . .  Christmas carols booming from  morn till night through the radio  and by lusty juvenile Carusos.  fhe voices growing shriller. All  part of the mounting excitement  as December 25 approaches.  Santa Claus these are not the  things with which we wish to  bother you. Our request is this:  Could you manage by some  strange alchemy, to find a method of ensuring that every mother  in all the lands, be given an extra  shot of energy that would guarantee her lasting through the festive season, without feeling and  looking like something that  should have been discarded with  ashes and torn wrappings?  By writing this early we are  hoping you can do things for us  this year. If not, would you mind  working on it early in the year  for the benefit of those who have  survived. We wonder if you could  introduce a new bill when par  liament sits again ... Energy  Allowance for Mothers. Being a  woman, Speaker Nancy Hodges  would no doubt give it some support, if possible.  We usually leave the letters to  the small fry, but this is a situation requiring rapid and desperate mea��ures, so please, please  do something about us.

Christmas dinner is, of course, the highlight of the  season���a home meal with all the family gathered around,  with visiting aunts, uncles, cousins and what-have-you, to  make it all the merrier.  But the  fun and the  feasting   are not all over on the 25th. They are a bit fussy to make, of  Young folks are home and there course, but who cares when we  are likely to be "doings" any time have the holiday spirit?

Food is  dainty, light and attractively  garnished and, of course, the  Christmas colors and motifs rule  the  decorative scheme.  The late snack, anywhere from  ten o'clock to midnight, is sure  to be on the holiday program.  This occasion is likely to be the  most fun of all, particularly if  we turn the young folks loose  in the kitchen and let them see  what they can do with a can-  opener, an electric toaster or a  waffle iron and percolator. Don't  worry if they use twice as many  pans as they need and muss all  the aprons in the house. They  will be having' a grand time and  vote your home the "homiest."  This is really a lovely time of  year and about the time this  recipe reaches you, there will  be a pungent smell of evergreen in your home, and a rustle  of tissue paper as we fix up  mysterious packages. The Christmas card list should be completed even though it will be  written and re-written. Christmas carols will he sung and sung  again���it's too bad the lovely  Christmas carols are sung so  many times during a short season and then put away for another year. What about the  Christmas trees? Do you suppose  they have a question? I wonder.  "Shimmering,    tinselled    Christmas tree,  Since  your burst of ecstasy  I wonder if you rather be  Growing now, than shimmery."  I   think  if  they  could  talk  to  us  they  would rather  be  shimmering trees knowing they bring  so    much    happiness    into    the  homes.   What   about   the   "After  Christmas"     carol,     Have     you  heard that  carol?  This is really  any wife's song.

The  skirt drapery, wrapped shoulders, ruffles and sequin embroidery which underline formal evening gowns, and the appeal of  the short evening gowns, with  their little fitted bead encrusted  jackets, are nothing if not feminine. Coats, too, show, when they  are fitted, more curves than ever  before, although the ugly hip  and shoulder padding have disappeared, and even when they  are cut on wide, modified "tentlike lines there is an implication  of a slender feminine figure beneath the concealing material. It  was not until nearly eight years  after the end of World War I  that there was a distinct and  sharp turn towards the ugliness  of the chemise dress and the  coal-scuttle cloche hat which  concealed everything but the  wearer's nose, and it may well  be that we have not yet reached  the phase when the reaction produced by World War I is felt in  feminine fashions. Perhaps the  latest   close-cut   hair   styles   are  ���but  Who'll pay the bills  we owe,  And   get   the   budget   back   in  shape?  AS IF  I DIDN'T KNOW!"  ���E. E. L.

In addition, thousands  of individual donors, using the  facilities of the UEFB in sending  aid, have also obtained words  of gratitude.  Correspondence, through the  exchange of letters, Sir Ellsworth  Flavelle, national UEFB chairman explains, has a profound effect upon cementing the ties of  friendship and understanding  between Canadians and Britons,  and is doing much toward emphasizing abroad the generous,  thoughtful and democratic spirit  of   the   Canadian   people.     This  vember last year. For the first  three quarters of this ye^r, production was running at a rate  of 15,449,000 tons and the British Iron and Steel Federation  states that with the higher figures for October and November,  and allowing for some fall over  the Christmas holiday, the industry should achieve an upper  limit of the year's target of 15%  to 15^ millions set by the government in the Economic Survey.  :?��_3. _&?_  mmm^mm^m^mfim^.mmmmmmmmmBimim  factor alone, Sir Ellsworth believes, compensates the efforts of  those fostering the UEFB across  Canada.  Following are a few excerpts  culled at random from the many  letters on file at the UEFB Toronto headquarters which have  been received lately from Britons acknowledging receipt of  food parcels:  "I am extremely grateful to  your organization and the people  of Canada* for the parcel containing such a variety of good  things which are either in very  short supply or unobtainable in  this country and also for the  very kind letter which accompanied  the gift.  "The parcel is being shared  by my elderly parents who have  lived with me since their home  was totally destroyed by German air raids on this small  town in which over 100 people  were killed and 400 injured.  "The generous feeling of goodwill so typical of the Canadian  people is very much valued in  this country and if the same  spirit prevailed throughout the  world it would be a far happier  place."  "The contents of the parcel  are just lovely. If you only know  what it is to have a tin of meat  like I have had sent me you  would be pleased. The bacon I  am saving until Christmas. You  see I am very poor only through  the war, so you can guess how  I feel. My heart is so full of  gratitude.  "We seem to be in a bad way.  I expect it will all come straight  one day. Living is very dear, nobody seems to have any money  to spare only for food. Never  mind, God's good. I expect the  sun will shine for us all again."

But anyway must admit I'm 90 percent better prepared for it than I have been in  years  and  that's something.  First glad to say Clint Nicholson is- home and looking very  well they tell me.  Had sad news of one of our  local boys, Everret Clifton, who  works in Flin Flon. He was  found shot in his room. So far  they do not know what happened. He was to be married soon.  His girl friend Pat brought the  body to Vancouver to be buried  last Friday. It is a great shock  to us all and our deepest sympathy is. extended to Mr Clifton  and his family.  Birth ' congratulations to Pat  and Dot Flanigan on the arrival  of a daughter. Aggie O'Kell arrived home Sunday with her  daughter Colleen.  The firemen had their big  night two weeks ago with the  usual fireman's ball. There was  a good turn out. The music, was  as good as always when Stan  Nichols  and  his  boys  are here.  Gord Mounsey was MC and between him, his dog and the fire  hydrant everything went off in  a sensible way. So now we'll be  looking forward  to  New  Years.  Sorry I missed my column last  week, but I came home Wednesday and had to go to Squamish  Wednesday night. Of course I  was down for Harry and Jane's  wedding and everything was  beautiful, particularly the bride  in her flowing white satin gown.  She had two bridesmaids.

May there be a twinkle  in your eye and laughter  on  your  lips this  Christ-  ROBERTS  CREEK  UNDER THE  DOGWOOD  By Jack for Short  THIS IS going  to be a  scatterbrained sort of an  effort .  .  .  The "Boss" came into the store  on Saturday last and said "Copy  in on Monday," and that was  that.  However I'll do my best . . .  or worst?  Everybody seems to be mad  busy, one way or another. Shopping being the principal source  of activity, although I was out  along the upper road on Sunday,  and one or two folks were walking along innocently with yet a  guilty look, as they nursed a  Christmas tree under their arm.  This script is looking really  untidy, result of borrowing a machine and asking for permission  afterwards . . .  This is my first Christmas in  this country, and later on, I hope  to" write a little of what thoughts  this nostalgic occasion fostered  in my breast.  The special carol and orchestral concert held at St Aidan's  Church, on Sunday last, is reported in a separate column, sufficient for me to say that it was a  successful event, the cosy church  being packed to capacity. The  gathering afterwards at "Greenacres", was also a crowded affair, and taxed the resources of  the WA, but under the guidance  of Mrs Findlay, everything went  smoothly. We in the "Creek" are  all sorry to learn of D. O. Wort-  man's hurried trip to Vancouver.  Also the very sudden death of  Mr Clay, of Gibsons, was a shock.  Most of us knew him, and the  sympathy of all is extended to  Mrs Clay.  The children's party is being  held this week, Tuesday in fact,  but of course I cannot get this in  until our next issue.  Now I think I've done enough  damage to my reputation as a  stenographer, so here goes for a  swinging finish:  A very. Merry Christmas and a  very Happy and Prosperous New  Year to all my readers.
