In the past, the people have  . been either too satisfied, or too lethargic/ to make any change  in their Commission.  This year if they are still satisfied, they may retain their  commissioners by going out and "voting;,for them. If they wish  a change they have a choice,     ^vyy--.      >v;- ��� '������< ������;: :���*. ���  In either case, it is a good sign of awakening responsibility towards civic affairs to see new names added to the list of  Commissioners seeking, election.  We urge every voter to be out on Saturday morning, to  cast a ballot in the interest of good municifal government..  The new Commission, whether composed.of the old stalwarts or added to by the new blood, will not have the easiest  of problems on its hands this coming, year, judging from the  number of items 'held over for the new commission' to deal  with.  We would like to suggest that who ever is elected, the  people of Gibsons should iupporifc them to .the utmost, for the  general good and progress of the Village. Right now, the Village is at a stage of its growth that needs knowledgeable  managing, and it definitely needs every person in it pulling "in.  the same direction. This does not Inean that everyone must  think alike, but it does mean that having thought as they will,  they must reach some common ground on which to work, and,  some common goal to trylto attain, 's  The Village cannot stand still. It will either go backwards  through dissension and neglect, or forward, through interest  and co-operation.  ANNOUNCEMENT . .  Dr. R. C.

'  ."  tog Protection  In every small community,  from time to time, some one  individual finds there are too  many dogs for his own conven-  iience. Tfc(it individiual undertakes to reduce the canine population without recourse to law.  .Recently in-Gibsons there has  been an attempt at such a reduction. The hit and miss system  employed usually does away  with the wrong dogs. Those  wearing tags and those that are  normally well looked after are  just as susceptible to poisoning  as the mongrel pup without a  home or adequate care and training.  A suggestion is offered that  teen-aged boys and girls who are  interested ifti, protecting dogs  from this sneaking death might  form a party and put on an, intensive search for bits of meat  or bread or other food scattered  about in;v.places where animals  are not normally fed.  These bits should be carefully  picked up with sticks, a shovel  or with gloves that may be destroyed, and carried in a box  or pail tov_:0.burned. Care should  be takenltthat no bits are left,  or drorjpeP'-'where another aiii-  mal mayv!get them.  . Don't forget -- small children  are prone to pick up bits of anything and put them into their  mouths. A poisoned child would  really  call for action.  Symptoms of strychnine poisoning in dogs are as follows:  Distressed appearance, drooling excessively from mouth,  stiffening of jaws, then general  musclesi, terrible convulsions,'  with jerking and throwing of  wihole body, foaming from  mouth, further stiffening, death.  Referring to antidotes, strych-  Reader's Rt  COURAGEOUS -MEN,  *>&&.��>.  Sir: ���  It is a certainty that J.S. Woodsworth was one of these when  we read his biography by his  daughter Mrs. Grace Mclnnis.  His short sojourn among ushere  at Gibsons has made a chapter  in this extremely well written  account pf his life which was  made' up-of constant trial and  tribulation. There are few left  hereabouts that he had contact  * with so perhaps my own gives  me leave to mention them albeit  without pride.  As for the bigoted band of  rebels who occasionally gathered in the Doctors basement for  "study group'' sic, we did not  take very kindly to this* as we  thought more or less cast off  Parson. We regarded him as  another piece of flotsam thrown  into this -back eddy of lifes  stream and most of us beach  ruffians were- glad to see him  pumping the leaky old "G.ood  . Tidings" with a certain smug  satisfaction.  After meeting Mrs. Woods,  worth, as gracious a lady as ever  trod these shores, we were still  at sea, and most peculiar of all  we thought all the children were  a bit queer. How we have been  .confounded speaks in this book  and in other places too. ���  ���������, The pitiful little man, going  off to some part of Ho we. Sound  in that "FAKE"' as we called the/  mission boat, Lifte Gracie says,  if ever there was a man who  knew less about the fundamentals of the piece of iron that propelled the boat, I have yet to  hear- of him.    y  ' 4'  But he won most: of us-in the  end, even the Doctor, and old  (Jake, finally saw the man in  him. As the book shows, he  never wavered, the line must be  hewn to the end, and that line,  was straight to the end. I would  like to suggest y that copies of  this book be placed in the local  libraries as a' tribute to his  memory.  .   L.S.J.     ,,...:.  nine acts so fast that emetics are  raely effective. Usually, by the  time it is discovered that the  dog has taken strychnine, it is  too late for induced vomiting  to remove the drug. However,  we are told, if it can be administered quickly by a doctor or  Veterinary Surgeon, Nembutal  is effective. It induces a long  sleep, during which the dog is  kept moderately warm. When he  awakens, he is able to be nur^  sed to health.  At this point, we should remark that many small villages  become over run by dogs, whose  owners have lost interest in  them. These dogs, no longer being properly cared for or fed,  or trained, are likely to become  la real nuisance to a community.  To make sure that these; epidemics o_ dog p'oisowing are  kept to .a' minimum, the dbg>  population also should be well  eared for, and hot permitted to  become a trial to others.  There is the odd case in which  someone evidently just has to  kill something, and the dog population falls an easy prey. Let  us hope we have not been visited by one of these.

Wise  by R.F. Kennett  "Not for several year at least,  Bsive residents of Gibsons  area  _3_perienced such, a wet and dull  '.November. As mentioned in earl-  . ier columnj, the trend still con-  ^3j_!_ied  through  November  to-  .ward    mild     and    precipitous  -weather. For myself, the trend  is ^welcome, for most residents  -_9_11 agree^h'at slushy snow com-  Ibined  with  periodic   nights  of  Ice are hardly in keeping with  43imate  of our   evergreen play  _fFO___d,   particulai_y   the' Sun-  ^sSiine Coast.  Absence of long term records  for the area doesn"t permit reference comparison, buit we may  safely assume that during Nov.  we received twice our nornal  share of liquid sunshine. This  excessive rainfall most surely  presented problems to those concerned with drainage, maintenance of roads, and specific outdoor operations, considering that  one inch of rain is equivalent to  one hundred and one tons of  water per acre.  The records .for November  reveal that 9.84 inches of rain  fell over the Gibsons area.  Twenty five days of the thirty  saw    measurable    rainfall,    of  these, 19 days were successive.  There was no less than five days  with gale force winds, that is  to say, wind speeds in excess of  28 knots or 32 mph. Cloud cover  everaged near 80%. Mean temperature 43.2 degrees.  On tlie south coast, averages  prove that December is our wettest month, while January particularly, and February the  whitest and coldest. This indeed  is most comforting and I always  feel if we get by Christmfas and,  New. Years without too many  sleigh rides, the next two mon.  ths can do as they will. The old  saying has much truth, "If winter come, can spring be far behind."  ays, Postponed!

The banquet  hall was beautifully decorated in  the yuletide spirit. The centre of  attraction was a Christmas tree  presided over by the Worthy Patron, H. Metcalfe. Each member  seceived a gift, some of which  caused much merriment. Mrs. J.  Drummond and Mrs. M. Turner  accompanied the carol singing.  Worthy Matron, Mrs. J. Parker,  officers, members and visitors enjoyed a memorable evening.  Two dates to remember are the  16th and 17th. The first one is  Wednesday and carol singing at  the srhool with members of the  String Orshestra. The other is the  big night for the school children  when they will present their  Christmas concert at the Hall.

BADMINTON BULLETS  TO BLAST BIRDS  Festive fowl are facing . foul  play on December 13 when the  Badminton Club will hold a turkey shoot at the gravel pit near  the Communiy Hall. Some arrangement will' be made whereby  those who feel inexpert with a  gun will have an. equal chance  with the crack shots, and possibly some nice plump little hen  will grace the table of a nimrod  who cannot hit the side of a barn.  Or instead of a hen it might be  a pound of weiners���the various  prizes have not been bought yet.  In any case a large crowd of  shots, good and not-so-good, are  expected to gather at the pit on  Sunday and enjoy a good afternoon's fun. None of an age to  shoot will be excluded. The ladies  have a special invitation ��� and  special targets. The men, oddly  enough, think they (the ladies)  need ��� a special target, simply because, in the past the men have  been the turkey winners. But  here is news; one of the lady  members is practicing shooting  from the hip. She just adores  turkey.  A pleasant aspect of the affair  will be the coffee and home-made  doughnuts (also made by the  ladies)   which will be on sale.  The fun starts at 1 o'clock on  Sunday, Dec. 13th. If you feel  like fowl for Friday the 25th,  come along.  On Sunday morning Mr. C;  W. Oldershaw succumbed to a  jheart attack. He wajs a resident of Roberts Creek for over  SO yiears.
