Just now many people go about with a  gleam of anticipation in their eyes ��� and we wonder if we are'nt  ail inclined to anticipate receiving, more than giving-  For ourselves, we receive gifts evey day of the year- They  aire'nt done up in the accepted bright tissue and ribbons, or accompanied by little cards of cheerful greeting, but none the less,  they are to us the tmritraas Gifts supreme.  *  There's the miseheivpus* grin of the small boy we meet in the  street, the smile of the little girl, as she raises her eyen from some  minute task that absorbs her- There is, too, the warm handclasp  of the old friend we meet at- the corner, *aJs'**we both enjoy the  * pleasure of the encounter-  The,cheerfu? manner of those who give us service, whether  in the line of their business or not ��� the unfailing courtesy, the  passing joke ��� even just the hand raised,in- daily greeting, which  help to make our way more pleasant.  The work of our, doctors,-bankers and teachers, who"-spend  their lives trying to make us healthy, wealthy and wise; and that  of our lawyers, who try to keep us out of trouble r���these aire* all  given pleasantly, and quite as though each of us were his sole  concern-  There are the cleaners aind.-the laundrys, who do their utmost  to keep us looking respectable.

The grocer never fails to give a pleasant- greeting, there's  always a' cheerful word from the baker and the butcher-      .

The Gibsons Branch of the Canadian Institute for the Blind  would like to thanK all the people of tjia Sechelt.Peninsula who?  so generously contributed to their drive for funds during recent  weeks. We have been pleased to accept this help to a great cause.  by Madge Newman  Hypo, short    for hypothetical  woman,  decided,  as many  of yoii have, to meet the Yule-  tide  Season with shiny,  clean  ''cupboard's.  One  '-slielf   in   her   kitchen  accomodates  a:  dinner  service  for 12, of which so many pieces  are missing that the last member of the family to reach the  table  findk himself eating off  the cloth- Nevertheless, it holds  all  of  the   dishes  customarily  being used in  the house- The  other eleven shelves in the kitchen, and the three ini the dining  room bulige with useless   bits  and   pieces   fit   only jfor   the  white elephant sales at bazaars-  This   year   Hypo   was   determined to do something about  it, and to that end brought in  a hammer to aid in demolishing,  the   juh(k   before   dropping   it  into  a hole in the  ground,  a  precautionary measure taken  to   insure   against   reclaiming  the stuff at a later date.  .She started with the glassware in the dining room and  assembled-the contentts of the  three shelves on the kitchen  table:. Even on such* a dark,  dismal day, the pale light fell  across.the shiinimetring flamingo rose of the long stemmed  goblets, the long and short  stemmed sherbets, the fluted  W'sltejr* glasses and salad plates,  the' paper-thin wine -glasses  and other pieces and caused a  rosy glow over that end pf the  room;  Her mind .travelled"* back  over the years to the occasion*  whem she had acquired the set,  six pieces at a time.- Dreamily  she poured soap powder, soda  and perfex with a liberal hand  into; a sinkful of hot. water,  dug out ai handful of linen,  towels from beneath  of flour vsacks, and  work-     Xy,  "0. welll,"'-. she.  - * * Th ere ir>?*��=������ birthday  up in a fewv;days and these  glasses .^owing&pinkly Xm, the  light of candles'on a lace cloth  cfofth 'do look party-ish- -IT1  keep them a while longer."

The frog kept them  from oozing onto the polished  wood 'after they had drooped  to a brown, and soggy old age-  The next ,-shelr.. ..contained  platters, Platters.large enough  to exhibit a full-grown pig or  steer, smaller oues for 2o lb.  turkeys and tiny ones for  steaks, left-overs from.* a long  linie of inherited, dinner sets-  One shelf outdid itself in the  matter of egg-cups;? As for marmalade dishes, the largest'-.chain  of hotels stretching from coast  to coast requires fewer- Surely  these were Stuperflpus, she:  ^ mused. Especially as the children invariably plaice the whole  4 -lb- of marmaladej. complete  in tin, on the table, having  little use ibr insignificant,  datoty containers where food  lij concerned.  One   shelf;.--" was   redundant,  with fra;giile, many-hued sugar  and cream sets, many of them  suitable for  breakfast  trays-  Whb gets breakfast trays ? Her  father had given her one set,  a cut glass one. Another was  a gift from her son bought on  his first trip alone to the city-.  There  seemed  a  good  reason  for hanigitiig on to each of the  sets.  Resigned,   she '-crammed  them back oil their shelf-  Cake plates!-To  the  right!  To the left! Background. Foreground- How could one accumulate  so  many  plates?   The-  shelves   had   to   be   specially  spaced to accomodate tlie larger ones. Well, at least she could  spare.a few of those to the hole  in the ground- The pale green  and   crystal?   With   the   soft,  shaded sprays of flowers fused  into? the green ? Ah, no. It was  too  beautiful to  destroy,  and  too,  it was a' keepsake given  to her by the sister of an, old  lady   who   had   passed   away,'  and one of 9, houseful of rare  and   priceless  things  brought  to California from Pennsylvania- And each of the plates had  a history,  and Avas precious.  Next came bowls- Ach, Gott!  that there could be so many.,  '���'?' in one small' part; of the World.  The. fancy, gla^s 'one that  sparkles so-had been? her  father's a��id mother's- The  h e a? v y glass 'sal.t^' bowl and  spoon were close to *a hundred  years old. And so on, through  piece1 : after piece vand s h e 1 f  after shelf, ad infinitum- Only  the cl*ea!m jugs were there by  ..design^? and Hypo could not  help ? herself beings a collector  of those.

Woods  As i See It  by Eric Lindwall  "Well, Christmas is here at  last- After all the adverti*sing  in the newspapers for the past  months, it comes as a sort of  anti-climax. 1 think people get  more enjoyment out of the  shopping that preceeds the, Day  itself ��� fighting t h<e i r way  through crowds and getting a  bloodthirsty pleasure out of  temping on people's toes ���  my toes, to be exact-  Whew 1 go down on my annual Christmas shopping spree,  I am dressed in sturdy clothes  amd wear a heavy pair, of dress  shoes, (self defence), so I can  plunge into the thick of the  crowds. I ratiolii my money out  very carefully before I set out,  (people have been known to get  go enthusiastic over Christmas  chopping that they sink themselves t>io far in debt there's  n:o money left for the turkey  ���a sad loss!)  ' It is not much use. writing  out a list, you never get a  cha/nice to look at-' it- Carried  along in the.preqs of the crowd,  ��� you make desperate snatches  at the goods displayed and if  you get something you want,  lucky' you! *     ������  Another pitfall for the war  w<ary shoppe r is children.  Children, worming their way .  through the. crowd with their  little sharp heels, (and my ten.  der shins), sticky .-candy, and  pierein g eiri.es, are enough to  make you give up and lose  your ? Christmas spirit completely-  But, after coining out of this  ma;dhou>?e   alive,   you   have "a  feeling    of   satisfaction ��� you  have done your, best and? have.,  loved every minute of it.

The Sports Beat  The voyage to Woodfibre is  over and it was a. very sucess-  ful one for all three teams-  The junior boys played firsft  after a tour of the mill.  . In the first half our boys  seemed rather shaky and disorganized- As a result Woodfibre lead 13���9 at the half.  But as the game? proceeded  our boys gained confidence in  themselves and eaJch other- At  the end. of the third quarter  Gibsons held a 23���17 lead and  they never once looked back**,  They outscored Woodfibre 19  ���5 in the final frame-  The stars of the game were  Bob  Douglas wh6  went   wild  scoring 14 points, all of them  'in the lalst half. The" other star  was  wee  Jack  Bestwick,   He  scored   only  one  basket,   but  that!s    realiy    something   for  someone about four feet tall-  The Senior Jboys game was a  wild and, woolie affair with-20  personal fouls called,  ten on  each  team, ..and  there  should  have   been   more   called.   Top  scorer was Bobby Nygren, who  made 21 points after collecting  three  fouls  in? the   first half, .  and one more later in thegame  Just  before  we   played   we  were  treated  to  an* ~ excellent  dinner and a dance was staged  after the game for us-  Roy Duncan X~-  I Vtseteed *D*ze6& & St^ Sfofefie |  AGAIN  FEATURES  Special: For Men Only  Fancy Gift Wrapping  Don't Hesitate To Ask For Help "to Choosing" Your Gift  Bal's Block Gibsonts  -       *  "  iPsxmansnt fpLzated czAfuLon <^Afiqktis6, X  tzyVuLon <��Llh.s, with dzsLtzAfuLon SmtrxoLaexu  ^Jdffsta <��kl%t6, with dVuLon SSLouzzi  "Sot &anfy<Wzax ?

"By the great Horn Spoon, thosewere gales," said the bosun.  "Not only could we not.round the Horn, but the fury of  the elements was driving us backwards up, the coast of  America. Only by the unusual feat of usiag the bowsprit  as a rudder could I keep us from perishing on those inhospitable shores. At this point, a flock of gigantic albatrosses  sank exhausted on the deck. Hastily reviving them with  tots of our cargo, Lamb's Navy Rum, I harnessed them  to the vessel and encouraged them to fly in the desired  direction. The upshot was that our time for the Boston-  Sacramento run stood^as a record for thirty years."  "That's a Rum Story," said the unsuspecting guest..  "Thank you, sir.
