"ly entertaining evening announced that the Gibsons performance  ' was the last of his Canadian tour  a tour which he makes every  seven years.    ' '���':������'���:���.-���  The "little world of Daniel  Llords".was, to describe it briefly, magi��.  He, an artist to the  " very core, enthralled with his delightful presentations. >:,:.  Lighting, costuming and the  various stage effects -heightened  the quality of performance. The  entire production, lighting, sound  effects and movement and at  times the voice added, were all  in the artistry of one man.  and if one imagined, as Mr.  iiords suggested, one was sitting  up in the godsfin a theatre from  where stage characters would appear small, the illusion was complete. '. "A: ...  What tickled some people's  fancy was the 18th century drawing room scene with the bewig-  ged, elegantry dressed puppet  performing on the piano. The il-  lusion was perfect.   ":;������"  There, were, quite a few short  numbers fbut the Offenbach Orpheus in Hades 'overture provided the puppets with a really gorgeous opportunity for the show  ing off of their capabilities. To  say they'were..'almost human is  no exaggeration. If puppets could  think "they thought even as you  and I, reacting in the same man-  ner.Y Yk- - '  Mr.  Llords'  artistry  goes' beyond that of handling,puppets as_  . pieces of cloth,, wood and. wires. .  They   seem   tp be  ahveY more"5  like humans   tryingito   be puppets. It is his mental setting of  . thief stage which goes a long way  towards one's  enjoyment of the  performance.  If   anyone   of   the  audience  failed to be  entertained,  it was not the fault  of the  puppets or Mr. Llord. One could  easily spend an afternoon or an  evening  watching the many facets   of   Mr.   Llords'   delightful  way with his puppets. ��� F.C.  v After  the  performance   many  who watched the. puppets cjourneyed to. Danny's Dining Room  for   coffee/: and   to   meet   Mr.  Llord.  =i��tec-ieip��ggtt^  ���;-'-���  ' ��� I'M.  T0T*  HH H H ���  DR.

' Y; ��� - ���" ��� ���" ���    ' .'���  One day���in December -r- in 1897,  Virginia O'Hanlon wrote a letter to the New York Sun.  t  ' "I am eight years old. Some of my little friends say  there is no Santa Clans. My papa says, *If you see it in  the SUN, it's so/Please tell me the truth ��� is there ?  Santa Claus?"' ���       4 -'kky'  ' Because we believe the reply with its message of keen/  spiritual insight deserves reading again and again ���  ~we show it here. It was written by Francis E. Church,  a writer for the old Sun. v  Here it is: \f "*Y;  i   "Yes, indeed! 4      .���.","  I   "Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been  affected by the scepticism of a sceptical age ��� they do not  believe except what they see ��� they think nothing can be  which is not comprehensible by their little minds,"  j  "All minds, Virginia, whether theybe men&Jor children's  are little. In this great universe of burs, man islifiWinsect  an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world  about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasp-!  ing the whole of truth and knowledge."  |  "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus."  | "He exists as certainly as Jove and, generosity and^evotion  exist, and you know that they aboundand giveeto your life its  highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if j"-  there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there j  were no Virginias. There would.be no childlike faith then, no  poetry, no romance to make toJera_tethi| ex^ence. We should!  have no enjoyment except ysenseff_tt  light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.",  ��� "Not believe in Santa Claus!

"Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lavyn?;0f course not,.,  but that's no proof that they are not there ��� nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders that are^unseen arid unseeable  in the world."  "You tear apart the baby's rattle and see What makes the  noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which  not the strongest man, or even the.united strength o^ all the  strongest men, that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith,  fancy poetry, love, romance, can push aside the 'curtain and  view and picture the supernal beauty and^lory beyond."        ,  "Is it all real?���ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing-  else real and abiding." �� y  "No Santa Claus! Thank God! ��� he lives, and he lives forever  ��� a thousand years from now, Virginia,-nayf ten thousandyears  from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood."  * \.  Ask,  any   youngster   in ' any  Christian country what his r favorite   holiday is  ��� the   answer  ���  'CHBIST^LASll-Xz/ZlZh ������''���'  Although the f date  may  vary,  and'observances may ��� be; a little  bit different? in every Christmas f  celebration, fthis particular holi- ���  day; means gifts for the children j;  and extra festivities in the home if-'  In   Spain   for   example,   The  Three Kings ��� Gaspar, Melchior  and Balthazar ��� bring the kiddies   sweets and treats   on ithe :  eve   of   Epiphany.    .  In preparation for the arrival  of the Kings, the children stuff  their shoes with straw and leave  them outside for the Wise Men.  In the morning, the children find;  that the Wise Men's horses have  eaten the straw, and in its stead  are gifts of all kinds. .,  In Italy, youngsters also receive their gifts on Epiphany.  However, the bearer is a little  woman who is named "La Be- -._  .fana." She carries gifts for the  good  little children   and   leaves  charcoal for the bad ones.  According to the legend, it is  said that when the Wise Men  first set out to seek the Christ  Child, they asked Le Befana to  gofwithf;them. ;;She refused because she was too 'busy. She later decided lli'o������%go tpf Bethlehem  herself but gotklpst: along tho  way. So now as'then, "Le Befana" still seeks the Infant Jesus  In Switzerland, the Christ  Child Himself delivers gifts to  the children. He comes on Christmas Eve in a sleigh drawn by  six reindeer:' The gifts He carries are toys, nuts, sweets and  cakes.  *    *    *  Then, after carols are sung,  and the story of the Nativity  told by father, the children open  their gifts! Later, groups of boys  and girls go about singing, modeling and tinkling cowbells. As  they go from house to house,  they are given gifts byf friendly  neighbors. '."'���  In many provinces of France,  shoes   arey set  by  the fireplace  by the young children of the  family in anticipation of the  Christ Child's arrival on Christmas Eve. He fills their shoes  with  toys and sweets.  In other parts of France and  Lorraine-,- boys and girls hang  their stockings by the> fireplace  on the Eve of St. Nicholas 'and  pray the good Saint will' remember them.  sjs     :}:     *  St. Nicholas is the giver of  gifts, for Dutch children, too  They believe that the Saint/  comes riding, through the air on ���  a white horse, and-jumps from  rooftop tof'rOoftppk As ,he slips  down each 'chimneyv he fills  shoes and baskets with all sorts  of goodies to delight the f young-  . sters.     XZl- ���"';���  Children of Sweden get their  gifts at Christmas time from the  Yulbocb or .Yule goat, who is  supposed to throw their gifts to  them through their front doors.  ..-' The gifts are always wrapped  in plain paper "and bear bright  red wax seals with a humorous  verse attached to it."  Iri the Latin-American - coun-.  tries, many of the Spanish customs prevail. And. they take on  added color from North American customs of English and German origin.  In Indian. areas, however,  Christmas has blended with more  primitive  customs.     ~    ���  In Germany,'St. Nicholas, or  Nikolaus brings candies and nuts  to the children on December 6,:  while toys and more personal  gifts are distributed to the kid-.  dies on ChristmasYEve by the  Kristkindl.   ;    f, '   k   '.,  k'.-kk '������'Xs.*A':*'"'���*'.���- ;-.���'-' v ''  In England, .children hang  their stockings in front of the  fireplace "on Christmas Eve for  Father Christmas to fill, and enjoy almost all of the same joyous customs that the young fry  in the United States do.  Since .the Christmas holiday is.  one that is a reverent observ-  anceof a Child's birth, then the  joy and happiness 'of children  around the%world at Christmastime is the most fitting tribute  to Him. " (  The   lantern      A definite rural  By Les Peterson  When Diogenes in classic times  set out to seek an honest man, he  appropriately provided himself  v with a lantern.  We of today can not only reminisce on the lantern, but in many  outlying    districts   can   contemplate it, for it is still with us.  For the rural, .pedestrian the  lantern is as much a companion  in the evening as was his dog  during the day. It goes with him  to--.his barn, along roads, across  fields, and through woods, warming his hands and watching in  all directions. Often it helps  make community life possible in  places where otherwise families would be forced to stay at  home, and in the case of many  a trapper and fisherman it is his  light ;not only when he travels  but also when he is at home.  Tom "Sawyer read his tales of  adventure in Aunt Polly's barn  by means of a lantern he kept  hidden there. Children, and adults too, can still find adventures  in the device itself. In scattered communities it is possible to  watch a light from miles away.  Looking from the window, one  can muse, "There comes a light!  I woriderf who it is, and willYtie  come iri at the gate" Or go on  by?" Zz ���;���������'������     '--';  Usually, in the winter, life is  lonely and evenings long, and  the watcher hopes that the light  will turn in. Perhaps it does,  in . which case >.the, con j ectured  visitor is met at the porch: At  his gesture to turn the light low;  the host insists that he blow it  limt entirely. Whatever the pretext given, the true reason is a  desire for company, . for an opportunity to sit and give release  to f thoughts that have had to  bide, their time all day. More  than likely, pretext or ho pretext..  the visitor has called for the  same reason.  All through the visit the lantern awaits without^: ready to go  again when .coffee cups have  been set down and the conversa-  The eruption on Tristan da Cunha  Through the weeks of autumn,  copies of. the Illustrated London  News that, reached me via Toronto carried interesting photographs of Tristan da Cunha and  the inhabitants who were forced  to leave their homes and seek  refuge on.. the,, small neighbor-island of Nightingale by the most  unexpected eruption of a volcano  regarded as extinct since its discovery by. Portugese seamen,  hundreds  of years  ago.  To me those illustrations were  also nostalgic; it was in 1903 that,  the tall Cape Homer on which I  was serving sailed past Tristan  within easy distance. Seen fairly  often from the decks of sailing  ships it is seldom sighted today,  being far from the steamship  routes ��� and the windjammers  are gone from the seas. Few  landsmen will have seen that  loneliest, station of human life  in all the world.  Master  mariners   of  my time-  at sea differed in the matter of  paying a call at such places  when the chance of a voyage  took them near; most of them  stood on about their business of  taking a ship to the port for  which   she   was   bound,  but  the  : odd one like Dixon of the old  Elginshire . would have backed  his mainyard off Tristan ��� supposing the weather favorable ���  and  taken a  boat  ashore,   both  , for the interest of the visit to  himself and,the islanders and  the chance that people living so  isolated might be in need f of  something the ship could supply  ��� medical requirements for instance ��� and'the Admiralty appreciated a recent report on such  places. But my ship sailed on  and the opportunity wais  lost.  We had done better at the  Falkland Islands where we called on business and were thus  able to leave pur tracks ashore  in a place new ,to us. Such little  events meant. much when all the  world was young and every  goose a swan.  The main elevation of Tristan  da'. Cunhayis plainly:: of ancient  volcanic origin but as we saw it  the thought of a possible eruption would not have occurred to  ; anyone, the danger would have  seemed as remote as it does to  us of Gibsons when we f look  northward toward Garibaldi. But,  somewhere' in that silent mass  the fires of the earth were still  alive and they forced a way  through at last.  Men of the H.M.S. Leopard,  sent tb salvage what they could  of the islanders* goods reported  that the growing mound about  the new vent glows , with incandescence at night.  One wonders . how many other  supposedly extinct volcanoes are  merely napping for a thousand  years of so.

The Junior Red Cross at Elphinstone High School is an active body, whose council of members elected from each division  meets, once a week with Larry  Crawford as president and Site.-  Forbes as, secretary-treasurer.

But she always fell  asleep, waking only for the commercials. While the commercials  filled her evenings with exciter  ment, they caused her daysft.  be fraught with confusion.  In the morning she did not  wake up to an orange drink. She  woke grabbing the alarm clock.  She did not waken refreshed because she had taken a chocolate-  coated pill or one of those things  guaranteed to make sleep easy.  She had not been sleeping on  a cloud.  *t* sj_ ��i_  *X* *r�� *g*  Stumbling into the bathroom  she was faced with her first big  problem of the day ��� which  toothpaste? The one which eliminated the need of a mouth wash  or the one with the cool, minty  taste? Since she was a busy person perhaps she should stick to  the one" that lasted all day.  Breakfast   was   another  headache. Her kitchen did not resemble   rem'otely those   onf the TV  commercials which, at all hours,  day or night, were immaculate,  and all signs of kitchen work or  utensils    entirely    missing. ' The  mothers,   no   matter   what   the  hour,  had  always  just  returned  from the hairdressers and were  attired in garments suitable for  afternoon  bridge   piarties.   Hypo  was scarcely even  attired.       y  'i��    *>��    *���**.  Her kitchen was a mess. The  spaniel had just brought in half  the   driveway  on   his   feet   plus  ferns and bits and pieces on his  long  hair, which,   together with  blood from a cut paw, now ornamented  the   floor.   The  boys'  homework    cluttered ���  the   table  along  with   Hypo's   manuscripts  from yesterday's efforts, a deck  of cards, a  coffee  cup and the  usual  reading materiai.  She swept the stuff off the  table and placed an assortment  of packages in the middle. The  youngsters could take their  choice.

Joseph to have  Merry Yuletide  Joseph Feke, long time Canadian Pacific Railway employee,  and section foreman at Canal  Flats, British Columbia, is as-:  sured of a Merry Christmas this  year.  Thirty-two years ago he emigrated to Canada, leaving his  wife of one year behind until he  was settled, and two months after his departure a son Joseph  jr. was born.:  On arrival in Canada Joseph  sr. found imiriediate work with  the Canadian Pacific and sent  word for Mrs. Feke and Joseph  to join him. Thirty-two years later his wife Zofi has joined him.  Two world wars and sickness  had delayed her.  In the meantime, in 1948, Joseph' jr. arrived, in Canada and  also found work with the Canadian Pacific; Railway. He has married since arriving and has three  children and is presently CPR  section  foreman  at  Revelstoke.  TALK By Syms  'i     "���'   '    > < ^IM&gLL^.'    /?'

About 10  percent o_ these live in British  Columbia. These people should  have regular chest X-rays to  assure that their disease is not  reactivated.  "  The story is that Martin Luther created the first lighted  Christmas tree ��� our most cher-'  ished symbol of the Yule season  next to Santa Claus.  Looking out of  a  window   on  Christmas Eve in a castle where  he was a guest, he saw the stars,  shining    brightly    through    the  boughs of a giant fir tree. One  very   bright   star  stood  in   the  firmament at the top of the tree..  So Luther chopped down a small  fir in  a forest near  the castle.,  and  brought  it inside.  He secured   candles   which  he put  on  the tree with the largest one at  the top ��� the Star 'of, Bethlehem  The  prince  and   his   princess?,  were delighted  and  they placed  all their gifts for their children  under  the  tree.  And  when  the  children saw it in  the  morning.*  they were ecstatic with joy. And;;  that is  how our lighted  Christmas tree originated.  Today, Christmas lighting is  part of our Canadian Way of  life and we have a huge variety,  of lighted decorations from  which to choose.  The modern trend for. Christmas tree lighting is away from  the bright and somewhat garish  effect When brilliant,;' clear bulbs  are  used.  The tendericy now is  -:   to use subdued ''cool" colors in  ,   the larger bulbs. Y  Recently introduced are the'  , "midget" type lamps. and these  have become enormously popu-  ;- lar across Canada. These are  about the size and shape of the  , sharpened end . of a lead pencil,  ; ..come in 'a full color range and  ;, give ' a beautiful effect -on,, the  k tree. /.  :. i ���    More ; and  more   homeowners  are using the new artificial trees.  v These   are  most' realistic   looking.

It is neither best, nor easy.  -    In   fact,   bowling   a  perfectly  straight   ball  is   practically  impossible.  Hundreds of bowlers will claim  their ball rolls perfectly straight  ��� they can see it with their own  eyes. One reason for this is that  they are watching their ball  from a point too close to the '  floor. Watch someone roll that  "straight" ball ��� but stand up,  and step back so you get a good  view of the lane. You'll find that  invariably the ball hasn't travelled in a perfectly straight line,  but has curved slightly one way  or the other.  There are two reasons a ball  will curve:  The ball always has some  twist on it when it is released  from your hand. No matter how  hard you try, all your fingers  simply can't release at precisely the same split second.  The   floor   of   the   lane   will  "work" the ball slightly one way  or the other. No matter how well  it is engineered, no lane is per-'  fectly uniform in texture.  Even if it could be thrown  perfectly straight, this would  be the least effective ball in taking down pins. A nearly straight  ball tends to "pick out" pins,  with no mixing action. A curving.  ball has "spin" on it that is  transferred to the pins. A spinning ball picks up the pin it  hits, twists it, and flings it into  the remaining pins, so that more  corner  pins  are  knocked  down.  However, if you are unfortunate enough, to roll a nearly  "straight" ball as your natural  delivery, and don't: wish to experiment with some more effective types or delivery, here's  how you would line yourself up  for spot .bowling, tf  TWO WAYS  OF AIMING' Z  : There are two methods of. aiming ��� by switching your "front  f.������.���;.'.--Y'-Y' YYfYf Z-',-/Z :/..&.

Naturally, you'll use common  sense to adjust these aiming  points a trifle if you find yourself consistently missing in the  same manner each time. But,  don't be too hasty about adjusting your aiming point. It is far  more likely a miss was due to  you not delivering the ball in exactly the same way each time.  Adjust these aiming points only  if you find your ball is consistently off target the same amount  in one direction.  Next: THE CURVE BALL.
