 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B.  C.  Just Fine Food  DANNY'S  DINING   ROOM    /y-j  ��__&i___  Phone Gibsons 140  SERVING  THE  GROWING SUNSHINE  COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 11��� Number 50, Decemberl8, 1958.  RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE      OKQ     GIBSONS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  ��- .:-a��_^-ri_>s_i_:* -**. * ���  *   r" _ . .  Fire causied an approximate  $12,000 damage to the pile-  driver owned by Greenlees  Piledriving company at Gibsons wharf on Wednesday even  ing of last week.  How the fire started is a  mystery. It was noticed close  to 5.30 p.m. and Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department responded. It took about an hour-  and-a-half to quell the flames.  Firemen under Fire Chief  Fred Feeney had difficulty in  getting at the blaze because the  pile-driver was berthed alongside a barge containing pilings.  This barge was tied to -the  wharf.  Firemen were unable to approach it from all sides and had  to work from the shore side  and over the barge in order to  get at the flamesj.  The   structure   housing   the  Clearing act  pile-driving machinery on the  floor of the barge was damaged so badly the roof caved  in. Tlie barge was towed to  Vancouver next day for a  checkup and repair. It is expected the crew will be back on  the. job with a pile-driver, after  New Year's Day.  Comment on the fire by  Chief Feeney dwells on the fact  there were no lights on the  wharf. "This could result in a  dangerous situation if a serious fire or accident occurred  -there," he said, addng that  there should be lights and operating as quickly as possible.  .,:?.*���������!  ���-      * * *      *       - f  is ex  plored  Stores well  decorated  Most stores on the Sunshine Coast will be open  Wednesday afternoon of  next week, judging from  information available.  Howe Sound Farmers' Institute at its last meeting learned  from governmental headquarters in Victoria that minimum  requirements under the Farmers' Land Clearance Act call  for one-quarter of the total  cost to be put up by the farmer with the remainder paid off  as a loan within four years -with  four percent interest added.  This means that on a $1,000  project the farmer would have  to provide $250, then he could  get $750 under the act which  would have to be repaid with  in four years at four percent.  The institute decided its annual meeting would be held  Jan. 9 when the election of officers will take place.,    -   ?  The roads minister will be  urged to complete the highway from Port Mellon to Squamish which members of the Institute regard as a necessity.  It was also decided to send to  the next conference of District  E of Farmers' Institutes a resolution protesting the 17 percent freight rate increase recently ordered by the board of  transport commissioners.  Stores in Sechelt and Gibsons areas are a veritable fairyland this Christmas. The decorative effect each has achieved surpasses anything that has  been done in previous Christ  mases.  One look at Gibsons area  stores is enough to convince  one that a real effort was made  this year to have the stores  exude a Christmas spirit. Window dressings have been prepared with meticulous care.  Sechelt stores have a'/o outdone their efforts of past years  and the result in both places is  bright and cheery stores which  would be' a credit to larger  centres.  Not only are the decorations  better this yea:r~bt-t the-stocKs'���"  also bigger and better. Once  again merchants suggest that  carried inside the stores is  the "shop at home" idea contains merit becaue_ merchants  this year have strived to get  the best possible stock for their  customers.

Quinn, presented the hospital with 44  dolls ��� all entries in the  doll dressing competition  at the PNE Home Arts  Show.

LONG TRIP  Jeff Newman, who has been  home on leave, returned to the  east where he is stationed at  a Maritime Reconnaisance base.  Ii took him four days of flying  to reach Vancouver from Toronto as he took the long way  home by way of Prince Edward  Island, Goose Bay, Labrador,  Fort Chimo, Fort Churchill  and other points. Little of the  Northern part of the country  could be seen because of fog  and the Rocky Mountain area  was extremely rough.  Young folk to  present play  .

Last year's attendance overflowed into the halls of the  School; therefore this year's  gathering will be in the Community Hall, where there will  be a Christmas tree and a Santa Claus who will receive important information from small  people.  Refreshments will be served.  A stall will offer last-minute  gifts, cards and stocking-fillers  and donations suitable for this  would be much appreciated.

They all deserve great  credit for being sufficiently  community^minded to let their  names stand for election both  to the village commission and  to  he  school   board.  "The community needs more  such people so the village can  utilize its best citizens in positions of responsibility. Without them Sechelt would stand  still and get nowhere."

You may be working in a kaleidoscopic whirl these days,  doing all the last-minute things which have to be accomplished  before Christmas Eve. For a quiet, tranquil thought, let's move  in imagination past the busy preparations, to a comfortable chair  beside our own fireplace on Christmas night.  The fire on the hearth has died down to a ruddy glow. All  the tree, lights shine in the half-dark like the rainbow jewels in  Aladdin's cavern, and the ligthed star on the tree's top shimmers  as if it were at least a small relation to the brilliant star that  shone softly over Bethlehem. It seems a long time since the excitement of the morning when the children shrieked over new  bikes and doll�� and there were piles of crackling wrappings everywhere underfoot.  "Good to sit by the fire and enjoy the peace and quiet,"  you think. "It's been a good day, but maybe this evening time is  the nicest part of it all... .'on earth peace, good will toward  men.'"  ,It is easier at this time to feel near at hand to the Christmas message that was sung so long ago by angels. We have time  to turn thoughts to gratitude for friendship, prosperity and love.  "But," you say, "it isn't Christmas yet, and I still have  those extra lights to buy. I haven't even looked for the housecoat  for my wife, what with all the last minute jobs to do! The kids  will be pestering to get the tree up tonight. I get the feeling I'm  looking both ways at the same time!"  But, even in the midst of the rush, which appears to be  streaming in all directions, it is possible to capture that serene  hearthside feeling. While doing the numberless extras which  come before the Day itself, we can still turn within to the "still,'  small voice" which gives us true Christmas peace on a busy earth.  We can imagine, even now, the feeling of ease we might  have by our evening fire at Christmas. Practising this feeling of  tranquility and happiness is quite easy, once we admit it may be  done, and we can take the thought with us into our busiest day.  It will be the lighter1-!; load we carry, and yet it will do more good,  keep more pea:e, generate more friendship, than will any other  gift we give or any other commodity we deal in. Let's extend that  thought of warm contentment into the days which come before  and after Christmas. We shall then truly feel "good will toward  menA ��� Ccr.iributed  Some pre-Christmas thoughts  Readers of the Coaet News at this time of the year are  most likely too busy to read an editorial based on a problem as  solid as the rock of Gibraltar so we shall turn to lighter subjects  gently.  One cannot talk about the recent big snow because it does  not exist any more. One can cheerfully commend those individuals  who cleared away trees, fixed power and telephone wires or kept  the roads clear for traffic.  It is possible to talk about store Christmas decorations ���  and they are really good this year in both Gibsons and Sechelt.  Sechelt has also started what can be a splendid annual custom, a  Community Christmas tree with carol singing Friday night.  There are also those valiant choristers of our churches  who are practicing Christmas music so church-goers in Sechelt,  Gibsons and Port Mellon can anticipate something above average..  Also there are ��� and we must not forget them ��� .the  children who will be holding their Christmas parties. It would  do some folk a world of good to sit down and quietly reflect back  to their childhood and recall the excitement associated with the  coming of Christmas. The children of today are filled with anti-  sipation just as were children of bygone days.  Then there is Santa Claus himself, no matter what guise  he may assume, have a soft spot in your heart for him because  he is victim of the same economics that existed for him all the  other days of the year.  prepared   hy   the   RISE ARCH   STAFF   of  ENCYCLOPEDIA     CA HAD I A Ii A  Where Can One View The  Niagara Fruit Belt?  A famous place for viewing  almost the entire Niagara fruit  belt is "The Point," on the  escarpment overlooking the town  of Grimsby, Ontario. The town,  originally called The Forty, was  settled in 1783 by United Empire Loyalists. One of its three-  parks is part of an 1812 parade  ground.  Industries include a basket  factory, winery, canning factory,  planing mill, artificial-ice plant  and producers of hospital beds  and equipment, stoves, furnaces  and electrical equipment. Services include the weekly newspaper, six churches, a community  centre with artificial ice, a hospital, district high school, and a  library.  When  was  the   First  Canadian  Yachting Club Formed?  Sailing, once considered a ricfo  man's sport, now is an extremey  popular form of recreation with  several hundred active clubs representing every province. The  first step toward organization of  yachting was the formation in  1837 of the Halifax Yachting  Club. It has now become the  Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron. Other early organizations  included the Toronto Boat Club  ���now the Royal Canadian Yacht  Club of Toronto���formed in 1852,  and a Quebec City group roganiz-  ed in 1861.  The first yacht-racing association, the Lake Yacht Racing Association of Lake Ontario, was  founded in 1884. Its member  clubs did much ta increase interest in sailing. The St. Lawrence Valley Yacht Racing Association sponsors winter train  ing courses for its junior clubs.  As a result, the North American  Junior Sailing Championship was  won for Canada for the first  time in 1954 by Harry Jemmett  and his crew of the Kingston  Yacht Club.  Letters to the editor  Editor: I reside on the R-  bump E-bump D-bump R-bump  R-bump OO-bumpbump F-bump  SSSSSS-air going out of tire-  R4bump O-bump A-ibump D-  (th D being short for a four  letter word uttered by each  anguished driver).  Any difficulty you may have  in reading the above is nothing to the difficulty Redroofs  people have to drive to work  and home.  Decisions! Decisions! Shall I  put the left front tire in that  BIG pothole or take a chance  on that chain of smaller, deeper ones? Shall I climb over  that gooey gravel shoulder or  climb sheer rock?  Is that a FISH flopping in  that stream running briskly  down the centre of the road?  Best drive carefully. There is  a law against molesting salmon  on their spawning ground's.  Come, come, boy. You've hit  your head on the cab roof once  too often. This is a ROAD.  The road men say, "No more  money in this budget and not  enough equipment." Where in  this pot-hole-hell is the taxpayers' and car drivers' money  being hoarded?  In your paper we read of the  plight of the teenage citizens  of our peninsula who are,desperate and discouraged because  they need a few dollars to  keep thm at school. Modern  kids long for, and deserve to  have, boats, cars, radios, chemical sets, sporting equipment.  The kids up here are strong,  willing, and husky. They would  attack these gravel roads with  shovels and picks and take  pride in their sections of road.  Is there no sense in public administration? Is there any coordination and co-operation pos  fable between school, public  works, social services and taxpayers?  The answer is  "NO."  We are having a Royal Commission on education and power. Why not roads? We could  have the tons of briefs shipped  to Halfmoon Bay Post Office  to fill in the two fresh water  lakes at the corner of the road  there. I suggest it might be a  historic occasion, the first time  a Royal Commission ever dio  anyone any good. Or is it true  that these two large bodies of  fresh water are to be stocked  with trout by the game department for small children and  old age pensioners..  Rumours, decisions, and hard  hard driving. Perhaps all that  we need at Redroofs is our own  liquor outlet, so that we could  be properly indifferent to what  kind of road we were weaving  along. Then our kids, our roads  and their old men could all go  to pot togther. And there  would be profit in that for the  government, to keep Gagliardi  flying.  Ray Fleming.  Editor: I would like to add  a word or two to the matter  of the proposed development  at the mouth of Chaster Creek,  Gower Point.  It has been, I think, a mistake in the past in allowing so  very much of the waterfront to  be taken up, and either entirely closed to public use, or spoiled for that purpose.  The beach at Gower Point is  a lovely piece of level beach,  and is very attractive with its  stretch of grass and its few  trees, one of the few beaches  in the vicinity where anyone  can go and enjoy the view and  the quiet of the sea shore. It  was given, when the Chasters  subdivided the land, for the  public, and I do think it a  great pity if the government  and the people of the neighborhood give away that birthright.  As one drives up the coast  beyond Sechelt, there is hardly any, if any places where one  can go down to the beach to eat  a lunch, except by paying $1  to go to a privately owned  beach.  This development, if it goes-  through, will make some money for a few people, but only at  the cost of great loss to the  community and our descendants for many years  to come.  M.E.  Telford  DEMOLAY  Christmas Tree Sale  To Order  Ph GIBSONS 145R or 198  40c per foot  No Orders After Dec. 22  Dignity backs  20 yr. silence  Dr. Clement Clarke Moore  was ashamed of his famous  poem, "Night Before Christmas" and would not acknowledge that he wrote it for more  than 20 years.  Today, the poem which begins���  'Twas the night before  Christmas, when all through  the house  Not a creature was stirring,  not even  a mouse:;���  is one of the most beloved of  all   Christmas writings.  Dr. Moore was an aloof professor of Greek and Oriental  literature in the Episcopal  Seminary in New York. He  wrote the poem on Christmas  Eve, 1822 and read it to his  seven children.  He had not planned for the  poem to go further than his  own family, but a relative who  was visiting the Moores put a  copy in her diary. The next  year the relative's father sent  it to a newspaper.  Other newspapers printed  the jingles and they quickly  became known all over the  country. The dignified Dr.  Moore was embarassed and con  sidered it beneath a man of his  scholastic standing to be the  author of children's jingles.  Twenty-two years later, how  ever, he finally publicly admitted authorship of the jingles  and it was published in book  form under his name for the  first time.

GIANT TURKEY  LAST BINGO OF THE YEAR  THURSDAY, DEC. 18  GIBSONS SCHOOL HALL - 8 p.m. SHARP  CASH PRIZES  No Game Less Than $10  CARDS - $2 EACH - 3 CARDS $5  NOTE: BINGO WILL RESUME JAN. 8  SUNSHINE COAST WELFARE FUND  How Christmas  cards originated  Christmas cards are so much  a part of the modern Yule season that one seldom stops to  wonder how the idea originated and by whom.  This simple idea of wishing  your friends a Merry Christmas brought honor and knighthood to the originator, Henry  Cole, a middleclass Englishman  Cole mailed his cards on a  December day in 1846. The  cards depicted a Victorian family assembled at the festive  board and the traditional  Christmas custom of giving to  the poor. They also bore the  classic greeting: A Merry  Christmas and a Happy New  Year to you.  He had a thousand of the  'cards struck off by a lithograph. They were such a success that plain. Henry Cole subsequently became Sir Henry  Cole.  Ihe cards we send today,  however, are a far cry from  those mailed by Cole. The  cards you send and receive  this year will be designed by  famous names in contemporary art.  The demand for cards is so  great that many companies  spend their entire time in designing and producing them  for the holiday season,.

ADDIE, Manager  At this time of year the woods  are filled with potential Christmas decorations.  Graceful branches of trees and  bushes bare of their leaves, pine  cones and weeds of every description treated with an imaginative paint brush can be-  some attractive Christmas tree  wmaments, centre-pieces for  party tables and finery for gift  wrappings.  Three or four branches with1  lacy twigs will form an interesting table centre-piece. Coat the  branches with aluminawn paint  and then see what artistic arrangements can be made with  the silvery twigs. This centrepiece is suitable for any time  of year but at this season, tiny  Christmas trees, holly leaves or  poinsettias can be cut from colored paper and attached to ends  of the small twigs. Colored  Christmas tree balls fastened to  the twigs are gay and effective.  Large pine cones are made-to-.  Drder for Christmas tree decoration. A little white paint on the  tips gives a wintry touch and  brightens the green tree. For  the front door, a cluster of these  cones tied with a bright red bow  offers a warm greeting to holiday guests.  Smaller cones are perfect for  decorating parcels and are a  pleasant change from the traditional ribbon bows. They can be  paintedi white, gold, silver or any  color to match the paper, arid  grouped in twos or threes, depending on the size of the parcel.  Before painting cones or  branches make sure they are  free of sticky sap and are perfectly dry. Then a glossy enamel  pr aluminum paint can be applied with a small brush.  A family outing in the woods,  followed by a painting bee can  provide decorations for many  Christmases to come.  OLD SUPERSTITIONS  ABOUT EATING   OF  MINCE PIES  Many writers say the mince  pie originated in Germany,  while others claim that its beginning is lost in the annals  of history. Nonetheless, it was  an essential part of the Yule-  tide celebration in early England.  Old superstition�� held that  any person refusing to eat  mince pie would be unlucky  for the coming year. Should  he accept the invitation and  partake of mince pie during  the holiday season he would  have the same number of happy months during the year as  the number of houses at which  he ate mince pie.

O.  *���&{':���*��� ���*���'���'���������,  The advantage of carefully  carving a roast turkey is that  the whole fowl can be served  ��� without bones, but when  the traditional dish is being  served on a family table,  there'�� always someone who  wants to pick a drumstick or  a wing.  So carving becomes a slightly different prospect when a  succulent turkey faces you on  the Home dining table on December 25.  Timely  advice,   then,   is   to  Swirl of color  Most households have a dusty collection of nicely-shaped  bottles which no one has the  heart to throw away.  Here's a way to swirl them  in color to create highly decorative vases or lamp bases.  All you need are odds and ends  of left-over enamel.  First, give the bottle a base  coat of flat paint ��� creamy  beige is good. When the paint  has dried overnight, take a  good sized pail and fill it with  water to about four inches  from the top. Now, dribble a  few drops of each of several  colors of quick-drying enamel  on top of the water. The enamel will float and the drops  >can be flattened out on the  surface by blowing on them  gently.  Now comes the fun. Holding  the bottle by the neck ��� as  close to the top as possible ���  dip it down into the water.  The bottle will pick up the  'colors on top of the water as -  it goes down, so make sure a  smooth, continuous motion is  used ��� don't stop half way.  Give it a twist as you dip it  to create a swirl of color.  As each bottle is dipped, extra paint will have to be added  to the pail. But don't use too  much paint at once. Very small  drops do the trick. When dry,  give the surface a lustre with  wax, and polish.  You'll find you have a pattern of color which could never  be produced by brush, or, for  that matter, ever be repeated.  If you decorate bottles for your  friends, you can assure them  that the designs are guaranteed  exclusive!  45* ���_-.-���_-_. 4-��  first slice off the bird's right  leg. You can carve it ��� if it's  not already requested by a  diner ��� by holding on to the  drumstick and laying it flat on  a platter. Start by carving the  meat off the tender second  joint first, and the rest will  slice off easily.  The right leg attended to,  the breast is next on the list.  Here the carver should hold  the left leg to steady the bird,  then carve towards oneself.  This system produces fine  slices that don't fall apart. You  strike the grain when slicing  in the other direction, and it  is harder to keep slices  thin.  The rest of the bird can be  carved in this fashion. When  the wing is reached it can be  cut off and the tasty, popular  meat around it sliced ��� always with tlie knife drawn toward the  carver.  In this way the "head of tlie  table" can avoid crumbling  clumsy pieces of meat and produce clean slices that look attractive on every Christmas  plate.

Pro-  foadly  in the noon traffic be-  ceeding on our way we reached    Tilbury,    having    avoided  London   and   its   traffic,   and  here we took a dilapidated ferry over the Thames estuary to  Gravesend.  Here we joined a  main artery of traffic between  London,   Canterbury   and  the  East Coast, now known as high  way A2 but built on the historic   Roman  road  known  as  "Watling   Street.  This   is  the  road made famous by Chaucer  in his book 'Canterbury Tales'  where 29 companions, comprising a   wonderful cross section  of  English   society  made   the  pilgrimage in  1390 from London to Canterbury. It took the  pilgrims   three days to  make  the journey, whereas we made  it. in three hours.  Canterbury Cathedral is,  perhaps, the oldest and finest  cathedral in England. Certainly it is one of the largest and  best known and we felt it was  well worthwhile to spend the  next morning in Canterburv  taking a tour of the Cathedral  and its environs although the  Tain came down in torrents.  The main building of the Cathedral was not damaged during the war although many  building�� close by were completely- demolished.  A curious result of this bomb  damage was that ancient Roman ruins were uncovered  ���which had been buried for  centuries under buildings constructed at a later date. They  have now been carefully excavated and cleaned up.       Our guided tour took us  through the old city and the  environs of the Cathedral, rich  in history as a place of pilgrimages also as the place  where the infamous murder of  Thomas a Beckett was executed. As any reader of English  history knows this murder took  place inside the precincts of  the cathedral itself. We saw  the ruins of ancient churches,  portions of the old city wall,  old buildings .of. flint wall .con- ..  struction in addition to the  Roman ruins-mentioned above.  We    left    Canterbury    after  BELOVED  CAROL  The most beloved carol of  the many that are sung in all  parts of the world is -'Silent  Night" that simple and tender  German song.  Its origin was unknown for  many years. Recent research,  however, disclosed that it was  written by Joseph Mohr. an assistant priest in Oberndorf in  South Germany. The melody  ���was composed by a schoolmaster,  Franz Gruber.  The poet and the composer  were part of the choir that  sang the carol for the first  time on Christmas Eve in the  Oberndorf church in 1818.  lunch and drove on to Dover  where we saw the White Cliffs  made famous in song and Dover Castle perched on a high  hill overlooking the sea. We  toured the promenade and  docks then started wast along  the south coast through Folk-  stone, a delightful resort, and  on to Rye, where we put up for  the night at the George Hotel,  a historic place four centuries  old. Here we met a Mr. and  Mrs. Moore who were the first  Canadians we had seen since  arriving in England. Not only  were they Canadians but British Columbians from Vancouver where, before his retirement, Mr. Moore was the manager of the Bank of Montreal  in West 'Point Grey. This was  quite a coincidence and a pleas-,  ant surprise indeed, particularly as Mr. Moore turned over  to us a batch of Vancouver  Province copies which had  been forwarded on to him at  Rye.  Driving along the south  coast from Dover we were interested to see frequent road  signs in three languages, Eng-  Open seasonl  Mistletoe, that distinctive  Christmas green, is usually  thought of as merely good holiday decoration or as a creator  of open season on ladies fair  for otherwise bashful   swains'.  Mistletoe did not always  hold this position in our lives.  The Druids called it "all-heal,"  and thought it held many miraculous virtues. The Scandinavians dedicated it to their goddess of love, Freja. Probably  this goddess of love is responsible for the custom of kissing  under  the mistletoe.  The power to heal, to protect against sickness, to perform magic deeds ��� all these  and more are the qualities ascribed to this plant in legends,  traditions and even in ancient  histories and literature.  Mistletoe is a parasite, which  infests branches. of various  trees of both hardwood and  conifers, but mainly on hardwoods. One specie�� is found exclusively, however, on conifers.

The rule of the right prevails  on the continent and these  signs were to warn continental  visitors   arriving  at  Dover  and Folkstone to change their  habits while in England.  We left Rye Saturday morning, June 21 in a strong gale  blowing off the English Channel and drove through the  Romney Marshes to Eastbourne  where we had planned to stay  the weekend. However, the hotel we had written to for a reservation was full so we went  on to Brighton and Hove. Here  the wind was still blowing a  gale, waves were breaking  over the promenade, the place  was crowded with weekenders  from London and the traffic  was terrific so we decided to  go   right   on   to  Southampton  and spend the weekend there.  We reached Southampton  about 5.30, pretty tired after  driving all day in rain and  wind 110 miles along the busy  south coast highway. However,  we had seen some interesting  historical places on the way  such as Hastings, Newhaven  and Arundel Castle and we had  seen some beautiful Sussex  countryside.  Southampton was in the  throes of a carnival when we  arrived and after dinner we  saw a great parade of floats  and bands down High Street.  We had a very relaxing and interesting evening at the Dolphin, another ancient innJ500  years old, watching guests arrive, their baggage plastered  up with steamer labels, bound  for all pars of the world.  There   are   many  evidences  of the tremendous bombing of  Southampton   during the war.  The dock area and High Street  are practically all new but,  strange to say, the Dolphin,  right on High Street was practically untouched although a  church next door was almost  completely demolished only  the walls and tower still standing.
