This was the way of it: some.  Phone Gibsons -5W  ''____: 128 Gibsons  British Columbia.  litll tale  l*ast. week's storm: was a bit of a nuisariceV w_ a<_mit. We found  Jttvi2_5oiwenient to have done a neat back-_itp ���nds_�� down hard  when not expecting a fall. It wasn't the best policy to do a slide-  ^slip -into���;.__. ditch, either. But then, we cwisoled ourselyes, these  __tinigs don't last, and in a day or tfwo all will be well. And what's  'z& little, snow to an old -prairie chicken* any way? Then^ the ferry  <___in't run. Then the mail didn't cbnie. Ah,/well, we said on Monday,  IVs about finished now. Wednesday should see us all in order again.  So what? Snow on Thursday. More disruptions of traffic and  : mail service. Snow on Friday, with atoother blow down the Sound.  More need for chains, snow1 shovels and the' like. More froze*, pipes,  more fuel going up the chimney. .  But what this country needs, we thought, is a^^ trip, to the anti-  SMSdes each autumn (first having drained; our water systems). It. had  _*��_sedto be either a joke or a challenge. Someone must have given  a carbori copy to the weather man, instead of the next one in the  series. **  And then we took a peek at the Calendar. After all, its only  .January. Can Spring be far behind?  the living not the dead  If you were asked~to donate money to aid all the people who  ;  lfc_rve died from various disease, during the past year, your reaction  jwould undoubtedly be, "how silly cam you get"?  .@tn& the Kinsmen Clubs of B:.C. who sponsor the B.C. Polio  refund, could not agree more heartily. That would be a stupid thing  to ask people to give money for.  Consequently except for a normal, human amount of _yimpathy  5&Dr those unfortunates who have succuimtoed. from the ravages of  JPolio, the Kinsmen are not interested in them. But the living? That  is a different thing.  It is a? known fac^1^ very small  ipercehl^e of th_;total of all deaths causecl ^K4jv^^ip^^'.^Ss|^^^9l?TlxuSS""  the average person who contracts polio'm  art a large number of cases, to face -the world and' tfteir future exist-"  ��_iee as a paralytic. These are the people that arouse the interest  __: the Kinsmen and the Polio Fund. These are the people on whbse  Sjehalf you are asked to contribute; not the dead, but the living.  Proper care and ii^tmetit can do a great deal for thefati. Practically useless muscles can be taught to function again; hands that  might be used for no better���purpose than propelling a wheel chair,  scan be trained to perform u_eful trades and arts; minds that are  \_r_ady to-give up in despair eahrbe charged with optimism: aind once  again, be imbued with the1 joy of living.  This is a job worth doing; this is a cause worthy of your contribution. So when someone points out to you that polio takes comparatively few lives, remember that though this is true,; you are  jEOntributing to the welfare of the many victims of this, disease who  .live, riot the few who died.  places.  ''!"..''  As far,-as one of the passengers  talking to "the driver is concerned  the  fault was with the passenger. It might be that the driver  had read or heard the story of  the  city  bus   driver  who   was  fired  when  he  asked  someone  to be quiet. Anyway, the driver  should be congratulated on his  patience   and  good driving   in  spite    of   the    passehger,    not  blamed  because  of the passenger's talkativeness.  .    The btfter business of someone  cbmplateini ^'because passengers  occasionally had to stand when,  the bus was full makes one wonder if that perison ever saw a  city bus going by with standees  froni front to back of the bus.  Also if that person was inconvenienced by standing, what the  rest   of   the   polite   passengers  were   doing,   hot   offering   to  share a seat. Arid is that passenger a regular traveller, and used  to wmotifions,  or someone who  makes maybe two trips a year  and expects pullmah service oh  a tourist ticket?  Maybe these grumbling passengers would like to see Pacific  Stages bri: the ��� Peninsula.* -for  some personal reason. Then they  would get as many trips as  Pacific Stages pleased to run,  and no more. Then too), any.  wages paid would not be t6 local  men; nor wx>uld they be spent  here.  ��� If some of these critics knew  "what the possible results of their  grumbling are, they might first  try sending word of their complaints to the bus company first,  and see what changes could be  made locally, before they carry  thetn through others to such  places as the 'Public Utilities  Commission.

At a meeting of the W.A. to  the Community Church Tuesday  Night, plans were started for a  concert to be held in March.  A "Travelling Basket" is to be  started immediately to raise  money to help buy a piano for  the Church. Further meetings  .will be held the third Tuesday  of each month in the Library,  until further notice.  The Library Board has received a parcel of books from  Mrs. Nessie Brown. She was  Postmistress here before moving  to Vancouver, where she is now  in; the auto-court business. She  sends greetings to her Port  Mellon friends.  The wedding of Mr. John  Homer of Port Mellon and Miss  Lorna Allard, of Rosetown, Sask,  took place recently in the Presbyterian Church at 10th and  Columbia, Vancouver.

Rennie is still in bed  after a fall two weeks ago, when  her dog on the leash got into a  fight with another dog. She suffered painfully bruised legs and  back.  Tommy Burns, laid up with  chickenpox, is missing all the  fun in the snow.  Mrs. P. White is. making slow  progress in hospital.  Val Peterson was unable to  celebrate her third birthday  Monday, being very ill. She has  made a speedy recovery since,  however.  Mrs. E.

Sechelt  Hook & Ladder  The firemen discovered last  Wednesday night that the pipes  from the water tanks on the fire  trucks were frozen, and the  tanks had an inch of ice in them.  The men spent their regular  meeting night thawing their  equipment.  Mickey Coe has given the Fire  Brigade permission during the  cold weather to house the trucks  in the New Standard Garage,  which is heated, so there should  be no danger of the tanks freezing again.  Even the fire siren was frozen,  and would not sound. It has now  been rigge'd so the mechanism  "turns continually, so it should  keep free of ice.

Of all the early pioneers of the  Gibsons district, Mrs Fanny  Maria Borgenstrom seenis to  have left behind her memories  of more fun, more kindliness  and help, and more genuine  general,. interest than most of  whom we have stories from older days.  Born in Finland in 1884, and  married at eighteen years of age,  a fact that she. oftem deplored,  stating that -no girl, should be'  married at such an age, she came  to Gibsons with her husband  Axel in 1911.  Axel Borgenstrom was a logger, and away from home a great,  deal. He was a very quiet chap.'  He logged until a few years ago.  He came back to the farm, where  he died about seven years ago,  Consequently Mrs. Borgenstrom  managed the farm pretty much,  on her own, arid made it into  one of the really productive ones  of the early farms. Fruits and  garden stuffs and dairy products'  were the main output from the  place,,but she also had a marvellous 'Green Thumb'! Her  Showing of African Violets and,,  other flowers is remembered  with affection by many today.  In addition to the farm, Mrs.  Bergenstrom saw that her children were educated, and gave her  daughter Sylvia vocal training  and her son John, now a Skipper  on the North Vancouver Ferries,  violin lessons. They both played  in a local orchestra in those  days. Sylvia died in the late  1930's  Mrs. Borgenstrom was a Charter member of. the Women's  Institute in: Gibsons, and her  death leaves but two others, Mrs.  Corlett of Gibsons, and Mrs.  Mary Morton, now of Qualicum  Beach, V.I. ."  A great Institute worker, Mrs.  Borgenstrom attended every  meeting she could get to. She  was an excellent needlewoman,  and her fancy work and embroidery are still talked about.  A famous weaver, Mrs. Borgenstrom used to be asked to the  fairs in Victoria and Vancouver,  to demonstrate weaving methods there. She tailored suits  from her own home-woven  cloth. *���������.  One of the early Fairs held  in Gibsons was held at the Borg- ���  enstrom farm. People: recall how  Mrs. Borgenstrom served hot  dogs through a little wicket in  the wall, along with all other  kinds of foods.  Many deightful tales are told  about the' dairying* top.. It seems  that Mrs.^ Borgenstrom had a  Ford truck, of somewhat ancient  vintage, with which she used to  deliver her milk and other produce of the farm. Nothing ever  seemed to stop the good lady,  such as roads or weather. One  might have been tipped out of  the-truck on the way,. but one  eventually arrived at the destination, with Mrs. -; Borgenstrom  at the wheel Jt. was said of her  that any of her customers who  had fence_4hont their homes  also had ^ ga^psl in them wide  enough to adntit'the Ford; before  Mrs. Biptgensiirpm; was through.  She cPuid^dyive through anything, -y yy.:~ y ������"������.y>"-.'..-..-: ���' -: ���������  = For a vtiitfev ojne John Durasser,  helped her, with; the farni. tlobert  Hartley also helped for" a|time.  In the mainp hPwever, /shefran  .the place "herself;   ": '���'"������'"v, 'S^Zy--  Mrs. yCorle^yand Mrs: B^ns  both recalled ^various escapades  involving livestock on the farmland the narrow escapes that  several of the ladies had when  chased by a bull. Not only the  ladies, but one W. Emerson was  once rescued by ��� Mrs. Borgenstrom from^'a narrow escape  when charged by one of the  creatures.  This past year, Mrs. Borgenstrom still sold milk, buttermilk  and butter from her farm, but  gradually cut down her stock  until she was just milking one  cow. During her recent illness,  it is said, she would not call for  help, but crawled to and from  the house in order to milk and  attend to her cow.  The doctor was called but a  few days before the end, and  though she was taken at once to  St. Mary's Hospital, this marvellous old lady died on January  4th. before her seventieth .birthday.  aciior  ���B...W.--M.

Newman  That is the wrong heading for  for this column. If there is anything going on at the Creek that  might be rounded up, I wouldn't know. Draped before the fireplace with a who-dun-it, I just  let it snow. If there is any activity,   all   I   can   say   is,   'There  shouldn't be". All I can see out  of my windows, (all 34. of them)  is a white lacy network of. snow-  covered   trees  against the gray  Of the sky, and all I can hear  Is silence. Even the birds that  ere fast eating up my rolled oats  which I scatter in the shed for  them, flit noiselessly im and out  on gray wings. The noisiest part  of   the   day   comes,   when   the  children,    home    from:  school,  have finished giving  the piano  its daily punishment, and gather  about   the   dining   room   table,  each with a jigsaw puzzle on a  plywood board.  Only three members, turned  out to the PTA Executive meeting" last week and the regular  meeting was cancelled. Badminton was cancelled also last Tuesday. Can't see"why these athletes  did not: walk the several miles  to the hall, have a. series of rousing games, and a pot of potent  coffee and then dash home again.  The kindergarten did not reopen on schedule, as Mrs. Galli-  ford felt the weather too severe  for the tiny tots. It is expected  -that-Mrs. M. Coles will assist at  the school when it does re-open.  -. Grown-ups and children alike  found a good slide in the hill at  Stratford Kindergarten and  spent many happy hours sleighing and sliding. Un-feeling road  workers scattered sand on the  one they had been using a mile  West of. there.  Mrs. D. McLaren has returned  from Prince Rupert where she  visited with the Scott McLarens.

The  B.C.     Automobile     Association  asks all drivers of motor vehicles  to  observe  the  following   rules  for   safe, winter   driving.   "Too  many drivers learn the hard way  how to control their cars under  . winter driving conditions," said  Harry Duker,  Chairman of the  BCAA Traffic and Safety Committee.  "A terrifying skid with  the car out of control is dangerous   for   the  driver,  other cars  and pedestrians. Follow the rules  suggested by the University  of  Wisconsin's traffic research  department and drive with reasonable    safety    during    snow-ice  weather.  1. Get' the feel of the road.  Try your brakes occasionally,  while driving slowly.and away  from other traffic, to find out  just how slippery the road is.  2. Slow down. Adjust * your  speed to road and weather conditions so that you can stop or  maneuver safely.  3. Keep windshield clear.  You must see the danger to avoid  it, so .be sure your headlights,  windshield wiper blades and  defrosters are in topnotch condition.  4. Use tire chains on snow  and ice. They cut the stopping  distances about in half, and increase starting and hill-climbing  traction by four to seven times.  Even with the help of chains,  however, lower than normal  speeds are a must on snow and  ice.  5. Pump your brakes to slow  down or stop. Jamming. them  on can lock the wheels and  throw your car into a dangerous  skid.  6. Follow at a safe distance.  Keep well back of the car ahead  so you have room to stop. Remember that without tire chains,  it takes three to twelve times as  far to stop on snow and ice as  on dry concrete.       *  Try Classified  Wqu___2��H&s  ling  Over the snowy week-end  have come reports from many  who have thoughtfully provided  emergency rations for the birds,  to help tide them over until this  "most unusual" weather subsides.
