Every  available piece of dirt-moving  machinery was rushed to the  road and it was kept passable  by prompt and continuous effort on the part of the road  crews.'  The hew bridge on, the lower  road to Roberts Creek is insurance for that section of the  highway for the winter.

Popular Eating  Spot is Leased  After, operating the Kum-A-  Gen Cdffee Shop in Gibsons for  four years, Miss Erla Hausch is  leasing the popular eating spot  to Mrs. Anne Garry, who has  operated the dining room of  the Sechelt Inn for the past  two years. ��       .  Erla is going south to California, where she will take a  rest, and operate a trailer court  for friends. She will be located  in Joshua Tree, near Twenty -  Nine Palms. She hopes the climate and quieter work will permit her to regain her health.

The Board of Trustees decided, at its meeting Dec. 10, to  advertise for another teacher  for the Elementary School at  Gibsons, and to establish another classroom, in the School  Hall or the Sicotte home. This  decision has been forced upon  the board by the increase of pupils, now 244, an increase of 10  percent over 1944. There are  268 pupils at Elphinstone High  School.  Mrs. Dick, a teacher at Pender Harbour School, was asked  to continue teaching until Easter, when she submitted her  resignation.  A piano, was purchased for  the school, subject to the approval of the Department of  Education.  M. Bianchard  Injured, Dies  Merle James Bianchard, 49,  of Sechelt, died on Monday  morning. Dec. 13, following an  accident about 8:30 the pre-  vieus evening.  Mr. Bianchard, known to everyone as Chuck, had been driving along the highway in his  truck. The truck left, the highway and ended up in Moscrip's  ^ garden at Selma Park. Mrs.  Moscrip heard the crash, and  found Chuck. She phoned Dr.  McColl and at the same moment Jerry Gibsons, who had  seen the truck, arrived at the  doctor's house.  Dr. McColl reports that he  found Chuck suffering from  multiple injuries to the head  and chest. He gave him treatment, and Chuck was taken  home, where he died in, the  morning.'  Chuck leaves his wife Mary  Leona (Mickey) and his son  Del, aged 15 years, and five  brothers.  Chuck was born near North  Battleford, and came to Sechelt to work as a machinist  for Lamb's Logging about 15  years ago. He followed this by  working with Jack Nelson at  Sechelt Automotive.

Jackson wrote this  about Sam Armour Jr.: Young  Sam as I knew him, a stripling  at first, then the man, was a  quiet man. He wanted the quiet  ways of life, but he found ways  and means of helping the other  chap or the family, ways that  were not heard of by others,  often  enough.  Working with him at odd  times over the years, he gave  one a feeling of peace and security. He never failed on the  job. We shall miss Sam Armour 'Jr.  Tourist Assn.

Considering the number of absentee  wtes on the list, voters who live in Vancouver and else-  \ffhei'e, a 4U percent total poll rates high. Not only is it high  for Gibsons but if one checks Qn other municipal elections  such as Vancouver, where it was 32.8 percent and other  British Columbia points, it could also rank, high for the average municipality in British Columbia.  Maybe a sense of civic pride is emerging or possibly  It is that the voters "are girding their loins" for the days  t& come when they expect serious issues will come to the  fore. Whatever it is, it is a good sign for Gibsons.  Examination of the vote reveals that in. one case specifically, the larger number of voters were of the same  BXLladL Mr. Ballentine who headed the poll, obtained an 81  jpercent vote.

Now that the vast array of  gobblers is looming on the winter horizon eventually to grace  the. table for toe various feast  of the winter solstice a few  reminiscences will not eome  amiss. I regret that I am not  more able in these matters as  tlie times of which I saw the  end were without doubt a highlight in the rolling years of  change and the colossal changes  and wars without end have  only increased their. lustre.  Time was of not    much    account and the iaint memory of  tlie festive season* brings to my  mind being . allowed to dip  with a long spoon in a dish  that was under a goose spinning round and round in front  of a coal fire. This was an experience, to pour this elixir  over the revolving carcass in a  sizzling cascade oi exquisite aroma.

That was easy.  We boiled it in a thing known  as a copper. "The general fare  of those days varied with the  times but due . to the slate  clubs and other schemes there  was always a certain amount  cf extra trade at Christmas.  *       *       *  Then there "were the    shows.  of beef hanging there would  easily weigh 250 lbs. and 30  percent fat. I surmise that is  hpw we learned to eat fat and  hang meat. The scene changes  to the Pacific Coast, selling  Texas turkeys well graded and  packed.  Then came the prairie turkey  in its place and    with    it    the  Most stores  made a display of know-it-all gourmets who could  -   -   - - - never eat cold    storage    birds!  sorts. But fish and game mer  chants' efforts were of a very  high order and a variation of  viands that is unheard of today. The whole front of these  premises up to the roof was  hung solid with most every-  thirg in the poultry and game  line that flew or walked. The  illumination way scores of gas  jets usually in design, this, combined with exotic fruits from  Africa and Spain.. From what I  gathered in later years they all  nearly lost their Shirt unless  the weather was kind and a  sharp frost was a blessing because there -was no refrigeration. The roast beef of .old England .was in its decline then.but  there was generally spine prize  cattle or sheep from.the Royal  farm at Windsor   so    fat    and  Phooey. What the eye does not  see the heart does not    grieve  about.  *       *       *  The remodelling that took  place on account of insidious  meat packing meant always a  cull or two in every case. After vainly explaining the dynamics of pulling leg sinews I  took the car down and did the  job.  *    *    *  Turkey is not a rarity any  more and it seems that a little  airing of the'matter of the sinews in in order. Before you do  anything to the bird take a  hammer and fracture well the  legs between the foot and the  first point, then put one leg  at a time in    the   crack   of   a  plains the dry breast meat.

The Masonic Hall was the  .Scene of a gay evening Dec. 4  when members of the Eastern  , Star entertained members of  the Masonic Lodge. The first  part of the evening was spent  in playing - Crazy; Whist. This  was followed by a violin, solo  by Bro. Milroy accompanied by  Mrs. j; Drummond. Next was  a minstrel show, written especially for the occasion and played by ten ladies of the Star accompanied on the piano by Bill  Kolterman. Interlocutor was  Andy Johnston who. indulged  In some fancy ad libbing.  End men, Mrs. H. Wilson  and Mrs. G. MacDonald, kept  lip with him admirably.  After this mirthful item the  music changed to a dreamy  waltz of Hawaiian origin and  four of this year's best hula  girls swayed in, albeit somewhat jerkily in spots. They  were enchanting in colorful  skirts by courtesy of 'Dennison'  their bright tresses of henna  and gold not usually seen on  Hawaiians. A few moments after undulating off stage they  reappeared in Scottish (?) attire  in the original and executed  a Scottish dance, also original,  after which they broke into  some gay Scottish airs.

An estimated 2,000,000 trees,  mostly Douglas fir, some  spruce and pine,, are being cut.  in B.C. forests for the Christ-,  mas-trade. They will grace the  living rooms of homes all over  Canada  and  the United  States.  The Christmas tree business  is a profitable sideline for the  province's       forests, turning  trees which would otherwise be  wasted into a valuable resource.  ��� The best Christmas trees,  the forest service explains,  come from the    poorest    forest  sites. They are low, bushy,  and thin-trunked. If left to mature they would be almost  worthless  as timber.  The better growing sites $urn  out trees which run more to  wood and less to branches. In  these areas young trees have a  future and they are protected  from commercial operator and  penny-saving private citizen  alike.  In the Vancouver forest dis-  trict, which includes Vancouver Island, the government  prohibits the cutting of Christmas trees on all publicly-owned lands.  About 90 percent of the har  vest goes to the US- znaxkei.  In the Nelsoni district Christmas tree cutting permits are  issued only to bona fide farmers, who must maintain their  plots on a sustained-yield basis. In the Karnloops district  permits are auctioned. Most of  them go to big US -firms which  have Christmas tree holdings  in the eastern states as well.

Limited, representatives from ladies curling associations of Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba met in Winnipeg to arrange for western curling play-  dewns. *  At this1 time the Western  Canada Ladies' Curling Association was organized with Mrs.  H. C. Andrews, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, as president, and  plans were completed for the  "Eatpn Western Ladies' Curling  Championship'' between the  three provincial winners in Regina on March 3,  1953.  Quick glances at the tuberculosis death rates in Canada  over the last few years have  led a good many to believe  that TB, most dreaded of. diseases at the beginning of the  century, is on its wray out.  Looking a bit farther, we  find that there are still 11,000  new cases entering our sanatoria yearly. That hardly looks  as' if the "white plague" had  been routed.        . . .  Actually,   what  the   combination of a falling death rate and  maintained case rates means is  that    treatment      has      forged  ahead  faster   than    prevention.  That should bring us up short,  for while treatment is    in    the  hands of medical men and scientists, prevention is    our    responsibility. We all have a part  to play, forced on us    by    the  nature of communicable diseases.   Where | germs   are  concerned,   cure is not enough.      The  spread of infection has .to    be.  stopped and this is slow   /busi-'  ness,  demanding   sustained    effort. In. tlie case of tuberculosis, which often takes months or  even years to.  develop,, the effort has to be even more"   tenacious than foremost diseases:  A reminder that we still have  this  job  of prevention   on  our  hands comes each year  in  the  mail ���   the"   Christmas    Seals, i  new in design save for the dou-1  ble-barred    cross,    emblem    of j  the fight against TB. The. seals-  themselves are gay but ,the letter accompanying them tells of  some  sobering facts.    Not  that  it is a discouraged or discouraging letter! Far froni it. It is  just the letter of workers who  have attacked a big job on behalf of the community and  need some help from those who  are going: to benefit ��� aixd  that's all of us. When you have  read the letter you will know  vtfhy you should buy and use  Christmas Seals to help prevent .tuberculosis.  1��   Correspondence  Courses  Offered  If you can't go to the University of British Columbia, the  University will come to you.

One day we started talking: when-retiring age .we reach,  "We knew just what we wanted: something neat and small,  And Inez made a sketch of.it, and tacked it on the wall.  "We met a Gibsons realtor who drove us ^all around  And showed us sev'ral places not too far from..Howe Sound;  We could not find the right one, there were not very many,  Tho' some were super-duper and'cost a pretty penny.  Another day he took us out along tbe beach at Gower,  We were not very sanguine but, to pass an idle hour  We walked in file behind him to see what he'd in mind,  And walked right by the very house we had hoped to find!  We both cried out "THIS is the one: right lo the last detail:"  -He paused just long enough to say "but that one's not for sale,"  Then walked along to show us places listed in his book;  We followed him, but glanced behind with many a longing look  But nothing that he showed us could please us, that was plain,  So along the lovely Gower beach we ambled back again;  We babble'd on about, our house, and the sketch upon the wall:  We did not know he heard us, or even cared at all.  On our way back we had to pass that one house that would please;  Such a.n attractive little place with flowers, shrubs and trees.  The man looked very thoughtful, and then, spoke up real quick,  "Let's go and see the owners Mr. and Mrs. Dick."  They made us very welcome, they made us all sit down;  And we talked about the little house that we would like to own.  They showed us all around it, it was even furnished too,  It had'a lovely fireplace, and each window had a view.  We don't know how it happened; it's still a bit unreal,  But in-hardly any time at all the Dicks had made a deal.  And someday, not far distant, for work we'll have no cravin',  And wefrl/be forever grateful that we have found our Haven.  R.M.C., Vancouver, Oct. 1954.

The executive of the club has  voted to pay off the bonds on  the hall, in full, six months before the due date, subject to  the approval of the annual  meeting to be held in January  at which time a "mortgage  burning" ceremony may be arranged to coincide with a membership drive for this" active organization.  Thanks are due to the executive for. this happy state of affairs and also to the people of  the Harbor who have given  such loyal Support to the club  and the hail. Which gives all  the more reason ��� for Harbor  folk to join .in the big New  Year's Eve Frolic the club is  staging in the hall on Dec. 31.  Taller O'Shea and his orchestra will supply the music and  entertainment. Pre-dance tickets can be obtained, while  they last, from members of the  club executive.  * *       *  There are two brand new  citizens to report in the Harbor. Eric and Jeanette Davidson are the proud parents of a  girl and Cecil and Julie Reid  of a bouncing .baby boy.  *     *  The bazaar and tea at the  Pender Harbour-. Elementary  Junior and Senior High school  Friday afternoon was a great  success. The boys and girls in  grades 8 and 9 put it under  leadership of Diana Lloyd. Mr.  Farncombe won the food hamper in the raffle. There were  Surprise packages for the girls.  Among the popular items for  the students were pencil, ruler  and eraser sets donated by Col.  E. S. Johnstone, the popular  chairman, of the Hospital committee who couldn't have been  happier about supplying them.  "1'hes.e boys and girls are our  Junior Hospital Auxiliary" he  said with a big smile. The proceeds went to St. Mary's1 Hospital.  *     *     *  The St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary is preparing for its big  event in the Ne.v Year��� the  Valentine Tea and ' Candy Sale  scheduled  for Feb.  14,'  1955.  * ��� *       *  Harbourites got a real lift out  c-f th"? interv'cv with Bob  cmi-.h 2nd a CBC announcer  the other morning on the Marine broadcast. Announcer Hansford described the 84 year Bob  as "a fabulous character he  had met while on a visit to the  Harbour." During the interview Bob told how he had  started fishing in the old country at the age of 11. He came  to Canada in 1912 and settled  in New Westminster but not  for long. "The doctor was always at the house" said the old  Gentleman. "So I moved to  Pender Harbor 42 years ago,  have lived here ever since and  haven't  even  seen  a  doctor."  Properly impressed announcer Halsford said "Well, I  guess you're going to take it  easy from now on."      But Bob  Mysteriously appearing beer  and failing' memories' in Magistrate Johnston's court featured  the case of Joe Jeffreys of Sechelt and Hollis McFarlane,  Vancouver. Jeffreys went to  Wakefield beer parlor about  10:30 a.m. according to his  own testimony, and stayed until  he was "very loaded." He does  not know how a case of beer  appeared in his house on the  reserve, but for having it there  in contravention of the ; Act,  .was  ��;ned  $10  and   costs.  Hollis, found intoxicated iri  the Jeffreys home, also had a  failing memory, and recalled  waking up in a cell at Sechelt.  Charged with, supplying liquor  to an Indian. Hollis was, found  guilty, and fined $50 or 30  days in jail. He elected to go to ,  jail.  driving at 35 miles an. hour in  a 20 mile zone at Sechelt  John Greggerson of Madeira  Park was fined $20 and costs  for driving near Halfmoon Bay  without due care and attention.  For having a rifle with live  ammunition in the breach, in  his car, Alex Sumners of Vancouver was fined $10 and  costs.  The old "gold watch" fraud  is still alive. Charged with fraudulently obtaining money under $25, Thomas Dare and Larry Weiss, both" of .Vancouver,  were found guilty. They had  both entered pleas of not guilty and conducted their own  defence. Each was fined $100  and ordered to make restitu  tion. A second charge ^against  Larry Weiss earned him an added $50 fine, and restitution i_.  to be made. These "gold"  watch salesmen admitted in  court that their watches cost  them $4.25 each. Cpl. Morrison,  RCMP, was instrumental in  having these/ two men apprehended on warrants in Vancouver.  Two juveniles were given  suspended 'sentences for' carrying .22 rifles in Gibsons, without licenses. The rifles were returned to their adult owners.  Louis Chabolla of Fort Worth  Texas, .charged with intoxication, following- a party at the  Sven Holmberg home in West  Sechelt, was fined $10 and  costs, and forfeited 11 bottles  of beer and one of whiskey.  It was later found  that Cha-  ! hollas and h*s wife Louise had  ! stolen the liquor and a quantity  1 of silverware and  $100 in cash  from  the  house.    Apprehended  ���at Horseshoe Bay,    these    two  Mexicans from  Texas were returned to    Sechelt    for    trial.  They were still in possession of  the money and  the silverware.  Both were sentenced to 60 days  in jail. Louis had hard labor added.  70 Attend  Education Talks  Seventy representatives of  adult education groups' from all  over the province met on the  University of British Columbia campus, Wednesday, to discuss "Adult Education, and Citizenship."  . Graham     Bruce,     Vancouver  School Board,    was    chairman.  At a luncheon meeting hosted by the B.C.

Purves said adult education is  now an important employee activity in the larger industries  interested in developing more  effective workers and citizens.  Two goals of industrial adult  education mentioned by Purves  were to carry on where the  public schools leave off and to  develop specialists. In this age,  he said, leadership and human  relations are  very important.  Judge A. R. ..Sargeant, principal speaker at the afternoon  citizenship session commended  the U.S. system of schools for  newcomers. In his opinion,, said  Judge  Sargeant,  citizenship     is  a privilege, not a right. He  suggested delegates consider  the establishment of an achievable pre-requisite for citizen-  sh'ip.  Mrs. Pearl Steen of the Van-  couver Branch of the Women's  Canadian Club, was moderator  for a panel discussion of "Canadian Citizenship" by new Canadians.  Winter  Supplies  at .
