In, October 1950, Ron was  working as a boomman near  his home at Port Washington,  when his world seemed to  come to an end. He was struck  down by polio. Used. to an acr  tive life (Ron was an A.B. on  Park Line ships at the end of  the war and stayed with . the  line until it ceased to operate)  his long hospitalization was  hard to take. But Ron never  gave up hope.  He was transferred to the  Western Society fory Physical  Rehabilitation in August 1951.  Tests carried out by the Vocational School -indicated that  Ron would be an excellent  shoemaker. Since he is confined  to a wheel-chair and can move  Special Music  December 19  There will be special Christmas Service at the Anglican  Church in Gibsons on Dec. 19,  at which the choir, under the  direction of Mrs. Jean Lissiman, will present some special  music.  e Two of the numbers selected  are Christians, Awake, by  ''Maunders, and Williams' Cradled in A Stable. There will be  a duet and a quartet as well.  Mrs. George Webb will be the  o'rganist.  ' This is the same choir which  sang so well for the Armistice  Day services in Gibsons. Their  singing of Sibelius' Dear Land  of Home, and the hymns, that  day was an unusual musical  treat.  The Junior Choir, ten children from eight to 13 years will  be wearing their choir robes  for the first time at this Christmas Service, and will sing The  Bells  are  Ringing.  on crutches only with difficulty, shoe-making was the happy  answer to his problem.  To convert a .crippled lad  with little but anibitiOn^into - a  iriftfef ^n{offfi^e*^alf:? Jris*  own, shop is a. difficult and expensive process. ;. It cost a tremendous amount of courage on  Ron's part  and  nearly  $10,000.  But money could not have  been better spent. The people at  the B.C. Polio Fund and the  Gibsons Kinsmen are proud of  Ron Brackett's really heartening accomplishment.  Today, Ron is well on his  way to a-��new and better life.  Surrounded by his wife and  two happy children, he can sit  in the living room of his home  and gaze out over inviting waters of the Sound and over the  town of Gibsons where he has  found so many new and wonderful friends, and a bright,  new future filed with promise.  But there's just one thought  that should be added. Up till  now this story has a happy ending. To keep it that way the  people in Ron's new home  town, will have to take him  their shoes to repair as well  as their good wishes. The happy, prosperous shoemaker is  the one with shoes to mend.  Shoes to set/ your feet a-d&n-  cin'"will pour from Ron Brackett's new shoe repair shop here  in Gibsons. Here's Ron surrounded by some of his Kinsmen friends.

Milt      Lonneberg, Wilson  Creek, was elected president.  Dan Currie, Selma Park, who  was president for the two years  since the inception of the Club  is now vice-president. Harry  Ladds, Selma Park, was re -  elected secretary-treasurer for  a third term.  Bernie Duval, Selma Park,  is chairman of the ways and  means committee.

Special guests are several  men who are interested in, fishing and hunting, and have been  invited with their wives to attend' the dinner, including Lee  Straight of the Vancouver Sun,  "Pintail" of the Vancouver  Province, Les Laine, game warden from the Provincial Game  Department and an associate,  Mr. Littler and Mr. Palmer,  both officials of the Lower  Mainland Association ��� of Rod  and Gun Clubs. ,  Requests: for tickets were so  many that the Club had to  make arrangements for Additional tickets to be sold and  just before going to press the  last word was that 250 would  sit down, to dinner.  MAPS AT POST OFFICE  A series of interesting maps  of this area may be ordered,  for a slight consideration,  through the local post office,  Jim Marshall, Fostmaster, advises. They may be seen at the  Post  Office,  and    ordored    ac-  rs._  Four candidates in they coming election: of Commissioners  in Gibsons spoke briefly at the  Ratepayers meeting, when called upon by chairman Be.a  Knight.  Harold Fearn stated it . was  not his intention to run for  the commission this year, but  because another candidate had  withdrawn, he accepted nomination. He was not satisfied with  the commission as it is, he said.  He felt that men who are in  business should not be on the  commission since,' he said., in  the past bylaws have been,  -draftee}:, to .benefit _,. individuals.  He admitted'; he^ could not  prove this. The village was no  longer the quiet place that it  was, and taxes he said, are  too high. He would be an honest commissioner,  he added.  W. Skellett thought that due  to the closeness of the balloting  at the previous ratepayers  meeting, when candidates were  chosen for the endorsation of  |the association, he should accept the count as an expression  of the desire of the ratepayers  for him to accept nomination.  He reviewed briefly the situation in the corrrrrtission during  his last term of office, stating  there was a balance of funds  or hand of "$6*,0OC*r and the mill  rate was 10-at that time. With  this low mill rate, the commission had tlone the work preparatory to installing the new "water line, and had also started  the garbage disposal work. Mr.  Skellett thought the present  tax rate of 20 mills is too  high. He thougM that if the  previous commission could  leave such a balance on So low  a mill rate- a new commission  should be able to- lower the  rate, which he intea-cte to do if  elected. He asked for the support of the ratepayers at the  pells.  C. P. Ballentine, did not  plead for votes. He stated he,  as roads commissioner, has  seen that good roads were  provided- that ditcising and culvert clearance had been maintained, and he rested his case  upon the wonrfc that he had  done.  F. Crowhurst, using a juggling tri ck to demonstrate his  Shoppers9 Bus  contention that constant watchful .ess over, village financing  was necessary, stated that if  elected, he would keep an eye  on village spending. He has no  axe to grind, but wants to see  a steady, healthful growth of  the village.  There was some discussion by  the ratepayers on the purpose  of, and benefits from, tlie Federation of Ratepayers Associations, which has started on  Vancouver Island, from whom  correspondence had been received with regard to Gibsons  (Continued on Page 7)  Advertisers  Please Note  To enable readers to gel  full benefit from the Coast  News Isstie of Dec. 22 every effort will be made to  have this issue ready on  Tuesday, Dec. 21.

CANDIDATES'    LETTERS  Editor:  Through the medium of your  newspaper I would like to introduce myself to those taxpayers who are not already acquainted with me, and to tell  them that as a candidate in the,  election for Commissioners for  the Village of Gibsons, that- if  elected, I will do my best to  serve them honestly and faithfully.  As a fisherman I make ' my  living from the sea and as  such Have no desire to try and  enrich myself in any way from  any  source  of  tax  revenue.

If there are people on the Sunshine Coast who are  negligent in their civic duties, particularly in voting when  they are able to, they do not deserve to live here.  a  Loggers Tales  Good Faith Would Help  Fundamental truth no matter how, when or where  expressed should be noted by the greatest number of people  possible. Such truth comes at times from the lips of a  poor or a wealthy man, a small or a large business institution.  Something printed by a large instution, noted when  reading various publications and publicity releases that reach  the editor's desk, has been selected for editorial treatment.  The Royal Bank of Canada current Monthly Letter dealing  with "Invention and Discovery," covers the field of invention in a fairly thorough manner and makes observations  about the future. -  The closing paragraphs are what might be termed a  veritable sermon containing- a fundamental truth. It is  offered here for what it is worth to the reader:  "We must not become* so obsessed with the thought  of work-saving and ease-giving and nature-conquering inventions that we lose sight of the basic things that make  us civilized. Progress in science and invention needs to be  accompanied by understanding of the part these" activities  play in 'human life. What man's mind can conceive, man's  character can control. (Editor's note: Including atom or  hydrogen bombs.)  "The problem before Canadians and like-minded people today is this: are we going to despair of making the  social advances that will enable us to live together in the  new world that science and technology are building around  us, or are we "going to search for and find the social answer  to happy survival?  "Something like this was said in a lecture at the University of Toronto in 1950. Sir Richard Southwell,' distinguished lecturer in mathematics at Cambridge and professor  of Engineering at Oxford put the case this way: 'It argues,  surely, some weakness of imagination if its wildest forecast  is yet cheaper power, more abundant leisure. What has  mankind done yet with power and leisure that these should  seem self-evident blessings now? . . . Good faith, not  advance, is the thing mose needed in the world today.' "  technological advance, is the thing most needed in the world  today."' i  By    L.S.J.

An open boat in November  even for a short trip is not the  most comfortable means of  transport but we were fortunate in the day and the sea  both being in good humor with  a light air from the west and  a small riffle to slap along the  bow.

A  true incident concerns a redundant female in ill-fitting shorts  and a cargo sling round the  top hamper, demanding fresh  water and cooking facilities on  our L.K.s lady's stove.  * * * i '  After making friends of the  two under school agers and  two dogs .we looked over the  joint or dump whichever is the  most odious. The white paint  makes a nice contrast from the  sea and that's about as far as  the praise can go. The whole  shebang is likely to collapse  should we get a real, top notch  sou'easter. Any breeze above  20 the doors all cease operation, wind fronv the..west Jtney  refuse to open, wind from the  east they won't close. The light  tower on top of the Hying quarters is a bit ponderous and the  gracious lady sleeps when she  can with an'open mind on what  should they do if the t_wer is  gone or comes down through  the abode some gusty  night.  This    summer      there      was  enough rain water in the catch  basin but, I must say, has that  faint flavor thnt one runs into j  on the prairie. p:iie_* years, thej  waver  fails    ab nit     May   . and  then     at    pj;o"l:.giou*��     cost     is  brci ght  from  Victoria  in  new-  1>   emptied ru.ii casks    and    is  qu:te   black  ;?.r,'l extremely  uninviting.  The mechanisms for the foghorn are strictly antideluvian  and of a prewar I vintage. The  oil lamp for the warning light  is a Queen Victoria relic, a  valuable museum . piece, :I  would say. When this piece of  half tide granite was surveyed  it was named after a race horse  and it has been a source of hi-  jinks ever since. The "Iron  Mike" has been delegated to  take some fancy boats through  the pass aided' by the cooling  draughts of beer. /Consequently  the south- end of the reef has  had more contacts from these  automatically steered boats  than ever before.  To those who have preconceived ideas of the nature of  the L.K.s duties it may be just  as well to outline them here.  Firstly, a day is 24. hours long  and there is a weather report  every two hours, which takes  20 minutes. Any aircraft are  noted for course and type and  sometimes reported in. The  light draws in and the oil lamp  is lit and turned off at daybreak. Our Mr. L.K. is spelled  off by Mrs. L.K. from about  9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. and when  Mr. L. K. takes over another  day is dawning. If a fog is in  the offing he must wait "till he  is engulfed and very often the  fog persists around Sechelt 'but  dcesn't .come any closer and  this will keep our man on constant lookout. The maintenance  goes with the job and the state  of decadence coupled with the  edd log that batters the base of  the light occasionally keeps  him well employed. They are  j unable to get relief so they  I can have a holiday. Three  J years and more this unending  round has gone on for these  folks, with one emergency  , plane job for an injured child.  j Mr. L.K.t is a fine type and  I nicely fits the job. He is a distinguished yachtsman and  world traveller and with his  wife, the very nicest of helpers, they make the most of it.  As we put-putted away from  the rock with Polaris gleaming  I mentally saluted them with  deep respect.  ALONG    by '  Barrie  SHORE zwicker  The proprietor of the-second-,  hand store said "We sell anything and everything. We'll sell  second-hand furniture, secondhand books, second-hand (Christ-  mas decorations."  Just then a man entered the  shop and said "I'm a jeweler."  The proprietor __ immediately  saw the chance for a sale. "Cam  I interest you in a nice clock?"  "No," replied the other, " I'm  just locking for a second-hand  second hand. -You see, I broke  the second hand on a clock I  was fixing and I need one to  replace it." The shop owner  procured the item and the satisfied customer left.  An ornament, circular in  shape was made of iron. It was  a ship within a ring-^of metal.  The ship was painted;-> Where  had this come from? Maybe a  poor smithy in the old country,  a fine craftsman, wrought this  in the hope that someone, would  chance into his little shop and  pay a good price for his handiwork. v  But this other metal monstrosity! It too is handwrought  but what a contrast with the  ship ornament. This other is a  misshapen cross between a  hammer and a.n ice pick. With  a short roughly-hewn wooden  handle, it looks like something that could .'��� fittingly be  found at the scene of a brutal  murder. What manner of history had this implement? Per-,  haps it was used by a hardy  pioneer on his homestead in  the new land. Around his farm  such a tool would have many  uses.  The  eye  surveys  a     dresser,  well    battered,      with       chips,  gouges,  and coats  of paint     of  ! various colors.      But the  three  I mirrors  on this  dresser  are  in  j perfect shape. ,   Here is a con-  ; trast of condition  from    which  j varied observations on    human  nature   could   be' drawn.     How  many had    seated     themselves  before these all-revealing    mirrors  and prepared for  an evening out, or    just    a    day    of  work? What did they see? Did  they see themselves,    or   what  they  wished  they could be, or  wliat they    were    afraid    they  were?  And now we take our. leave  of the second-hand store, having only scratched the surface  of the tales, written silently into the nicks and dust.  ^ss?5ttjtt^'^itt>ttytt?^$tt'^  STMAS  *$_&.    mm  Send The Coast News  To Your Friends  $2. a year mailed  Contact Your Local Agent  MRS.

Rain fell on 20 days during  the month for a total of 13.36  inches, the wettest . day being  Nov. 4th when 1.95 inches was  recorded.

Power  Cfc>___mission   regarding   the   financing  of    Commission    undertakings and  although  the facts  aire probably  known    to     residents of the Peninsula now  receiving  service  it   is  explained -j.  here for those of . the    Pender j  Harbor  area  not   yet  receiving;  service.. j  To clarify the situation S. B. j  Howlett superintendent for the  Power      Commision      covering |  the Peninsula area has prepared  a statement which follows:  The  B.C.  Power  Commission',  as not a department of the pro- j  vinclal government in the usual  sense. It does not receive    annual appropriations  from     tax  funds in order to carry on busi-  Kvess.       The  Commission's  only  source of revenue is the monthly light bills received from its  customers. It is a Crown Company, owned by the people    of  British  Columbia.  The  Electric  Power Act,    under   which    the  Cornxnission  operates,    specifies  that  each   power   district   shall  be    self-sustaining     financially.  This means  that    the    Sechelt  Peninsula, which is one of the  2S power districts, must    meet  -fee cost of distributing    power  ��rr_ the Peninsula. With that in  mind  it  can. be  seen  that  service  to  outlying   areas,     where  there  are  relatively  few customers per mile of line, can not  be given for the usual minimum  monthly bill. Where, as  in- the  case  of the    proposed    Pender  Harbor  line, the    capital     cost  per customer is very great (approximately  five  times  the  average cost for the  rest of    the  Peninsula) the minimum    monthly bill has  to be set so that  the  power  district   as  a  whole  will not be overwhelmed financially as a result of    tlie    construction of these new facilities.  This  will  explain . then,  why  a net monthly minimum  of $9  was set for  the    Pender    Harbor line, and if it is consolation  to those living in this area, the  Commission   is   presently   serving several other areas at    the  same minimum.      As with    the  other areas, it is confidently expected   that   with  power  available,  these areas  will  grow. If  they do the cost will be distributed among a greater    number  and the minimum can  then be  reduced.  rfHE OLD HOME TOWN  *0tUM�� U. 1 ht** OS_i  By STANLEY  Pulp and paper - accounts for  one third of all the electric  power consumption in Canadian industry.  ���____  IN THE PHONE AND IN THE HOME  SECHELT LOCKERS IS NO. 1  Dollar Days  Thursday, Friday and Saturday  ��EAL STEAKS, 318$.

With an eye to Christmas  Shopping, I looked about for  toys at first, and found such an  excellent selection in' each of  the many stores on the Peninsula, that I am really unable to  choose one from the many. Any  toy-minded gift-giver should be  able to satisfy the most discriminating child, or interest the  most intelligent.  There is a new quality of  sturdmess about the mechanical toys and the wheeled goods  and a greater variety of gift  items for little girls, this year.  Cards and gift wrappings are  more beautiful, more imaginative than ever.  I have seen tlie most delightful new applications of plastic  in items for inexpensive, durable and attractive gifts.  t The stores abound in. good  i things for the Christmas table,  whether meats, vegetables or  fruits fish or fowl. The variety  available   is  excellent.  The clothing stores are filled  with men's, women's and children's items, of both the regular  and the 'gift' variety, and I'll  venture to say that after the  opening of the Christmas packages, we'll be one of the best -  dressed communities going.  Should your ideas run to the  practical side, there is such a  host of electrical appliances,  chinaware, kitchenware tools  for this and that hobbyist or  tradesman, as well as sports  equipment and fishing 'lures'  that no one should be neglected.

He also urged that  the ratepayers, though they  might not all be satisfied with  whichever candidates were  elected, should nevertheless  support them.  Mr. Ballentine urged that  more ratepayers attend Commission meetings.  Mr. Mainwaring asked Mr.  Ballentine about zoning laws,  particularly with zones allowing business within residential  areas, and spoke of the motel  in one area, an^ a store in. another. He wanted to know whether the motel would be permitted to expand beyond its  present holdings. Mr. Ballentine replied the motel in question was in -operation as. a  cabin-rental business before  the area was zoned, as was the  case with the store in question.  These businesses could not be  asked to mo,ve. The zoning by-  j law did  set    limits,    upon    the  Thursday  in  January.

Writers With Yen for North'  Might Have Chance Here  Todays biggest bargain in  education, experience and fun  is still available to British Columbia's rural young"..-' people,  but they have only a few more  days in which to take advantage if it!  Dec. 15 is the deadline for  enrolments ;n the Univers ty of  British        Columbia's Youth  Training School, . to be held  Jan. 10 to March 4 on the university campus. Principal Allen  Des Champs reports that he  still has vacancies for 76 single  or: married young people between the ages of 16 and 30,.  but applications should be submitted immediately.  , "Where ��� else could you live  for $1;0 a month.while you receive free expert instruction in  "a number of practical subjects  designed for rural youth?"  say Des Champs. A $20 total  contribution toward two  months' room and board is the  only expense for Youth Training School students. All other  costs are covered by the Provincial Department of Education, the Department of Labor  and the University.  Canadians are more interested than ever before in the farthest reaches of their country.  The demand for  information  Ol every kind about the northern frontier and the people  who live there and about the  great new developments in Can- j  ada's vast resources has., rapidly increased. Now the Department of Northern Affairs and  National Resources is looking  for people to help answer the  need for this information with  the imagination that the subject deserves.  The  Civil    Service    commission   has issued  advertisements  to fill vacancies for information  officers  in the   department    of  northern affairs    anr    national  resources. It is looking for candidates with initiative' and demonstrated ability   to  write.  .   The present,   vacances    arise  owing to transfers and    retirements over the- past year and a  half. When they are    filled   in  the department there will be a  total  of four' information  officers whose job it is to answer  the endless, questions asked by  Canadians -   and    others    .about  the north.and    about    the    resources of Canada.      The questions will be  "answered in part  by publications which must  be  interesting both in    style    and  format. Part of the job will be  to  assist private     writers    and  journalists  to   get  the material  they- require.    The  information  may also be given' t0 the public  by television, films, exhibitions,  and answers to direct enquiries.  There will be no expansion    of  the re-organization of    existing  the   information   staff,   but   by  facilities and    the    recruitment  of the  right  people,  the  information   officers   will  be   called  upon to satisfy    some    of    the  backlog of demand about    the  least known parts of Canada.

Ralph  Chetwynd,  minister    of    trade  and industry. Monthly count of  - traveller's    vehicle    permits  shows October's total of entries  to be 1-5 percent above last October's figure. All other   Canadian    provinces,    except    New  Brunswick,     fell    below    their  1953   October  entries,   giving  a  national average    decrease    of  4.3   percent.     British   Columbia  is now within sight of a    new  record, having passed the quar.  ter-million  mark   in    the    first  ten months of this year.  the work being undertaken by  scientists in search of new  wood products and new uses  for them. Then, there are the  water resources around which  most of the great developments  of this century have been built,  tion advancing from the south;  there is the future of our wildlife not only as it provides  sport for hunters, but as the  basis of life for the Eskimos;  there are the forests, the continuing efforts to preserve and  develop them, and the story of  about Canada.

"No worthy student has ever  been turned away from the  School because, of lack of  funds," Des Champs says. He  points proudly to the nearly  800 YTS graduates who are becoming community leaders  throughout the province.  Students will live in the  Youth Training Centre adjacent to the University campus.  Dormitories, a dining hall,; recreation hall, shops ��� and lecture rooms are. included in the  unit. The finest instruction'  available will be offered by  University faculty members  i and . off-campus  experts.

The Powell River boys won  46-21 and 37-18 while the Powell River girls downed the  Gibsons girls 37-22 in- the first  game and won the second, 18-6.  Watched the Commercial  boys work out last week���they  looked alright too��� a good  coach and some organization  plus hard practice and we  should see some good games  this winter. Here is a chance  for one of the local organizations to do some good by stepping in and sponsoring these  boys. This team will be playing  games around the Vancouver  district and it sure pays ' to advertise.  The Gibsons Recreation, Commission is starting a Boxing  Club and for the present the  members will be transported to  Port Mellon where they will  have good equipment and expert instruction.  Anyone     interested      should  leave  his name at the Second-  Hand Store as soon as possible.  BOWLING  NEWS  TEN PIN LEAGUE: High  three, Sam MacKenzie, 508.  High Single, Orv Moscrip, 192.
