COURTEOUS SERVICE  Something will be done  about those minors who have  a habit of being obnoxious at  school dances and other functions, Magistrate Andy Johnston announces.  "The time has come to clamp  down on such practices because  their behaviour is most decidedly  uncalled for and should  not   be   tolerated!,"   he   said.  "Any of those young men who  appear before me on  charges  involving actions at or ih the  vicinity of dances will get no  leniency shown them."  A "There are too many young  men who think they can get  away    with    whatever    they  choose to do," the magistrate  added, "but they will find out  it will be better for them to  behave themselves than to foe  obnoxious at any public function."  One juvenile was recently  fined $20 arid placed on three  months probation for creating  a disturbance at a school dance.  He was also ordered to tell his  friends he had apologized to  the teacher.  The court complimented the  teacher who had brought the  matter to the attention of the  authorities.

On Tues., Nov.  25, Kinsmen and Kinettes from  Sechelt and Gibsons attended  a dinner and campaign workshop at the Peninsula Hotel.  Three Kinsmen from Vancouver, directors of the fund, explained the services now being  sponsored and the distribution  of last year's finances, the commitments for the coming year  and the theme of the 1958 campaign.  Gibsonsi Kinsmen have sent  their donation to the Spring-  hill Disaster Fund. Kin clubs  across- Canada are contributing  and administrating this fund  to provide free dental care for  all the children whose fathers  were lost in the mine disasters  of 1956 and 1958. 'Pre-school  ~, children and those attending  school will be checked by a  dentist every six months and  their dental expenses will be  paid' out of this fund.  Better lights  for Sechelt  A special meeting of the Sechelt Village Commission was  held Nov. 24 to deal with-street  lighting improvements.  It was pointed? out" .that under present street lighting bylaws, suggested improvements  were covered and also prepayment of installation costs.  These costs would be provided  for in the provisional budget  for 1959.  After discussion it was de-  cidel that the B.C. Electric be  notified to proceed with the improvement of street lighting  along the main highway from  the Forestry building to the  school corner.  Five standard lamps will be  removed and replaced with 11  mercury vapor lamps asi shown  on tlie plans submitted by the  utility company.  Heavy rains of the last few  ���days   created   havoc   in  Twin  Creeks area on the highway towards Port Mellon.  Raging torrents breaking  banks of normal streams surged down fairly steep slopes and  at one point started to undermine the highway. Mud and  rubble was washed onto the  roadway and slowed down traffic in an area of several, hundred yards.  Roads department equipment and men hurried to the  spot and managed temporary  repairs until the water subsided so more permanent repairs  could be made.  The   most   serious  flooding  occurred    at    the    Vancouver  Towing  Company area at the  niputh  of Twin Creeks when  a   torrent   of   water   Monday  morning   swept out   a  bridge  aijd almost  resulted in a serious fatality but for the prompt  action   of   Mrs.  Alfred  Farris  wjio  noticed  the   bridge   was  wobbling   and forced the  car  containing    Mrs.    Farris,    her  husband and two children, to  stpp. The children were school  bound    and   Mr.   Farris   was  headed for his job at Port Mellon.. One child was Darlynn, 13  a  daughter  and   the  other,  a  friend, Diane Bergen, 8. They  managed to get out of the car  which was eventually isolated  on a small island surrounded  by? raging torrents. Later the  water  and  debris   overturned  the? car.  The raging torrent moved on  to create considerable damage  to_ premises of the Vancouver  ?*_��%jing..company., and J.M..  Brown, manager, reports heavy  damage to office equipment  and stationery when one wall  was torn out by debris hurled  against the office building by  the torrent of water. High water mark was at the seven foot  level when the flooding was  at its peak.  Little other damage Was reported except at Sechelt where  there was considerable flooding of the British American Oil  plant and much flooding of the  highway in front of the shopping area. As a result Mrs.  Christine Johnston phoned  Minister of Highways' Phil Gaglardi and explained that something would have to be done  about draining ofj the highway,'  which is a provincial concern.  He promised something would  be done. y. j  Canadian F6rest -Products  Port Mellon mill also suffered  a stoppage of work for about  20 houre due to muddy water.  There will be a municipal  election in the village of Sechelt on Dec. 11. There will  not be an election in the village of Gibsons' because two  nominations to fill tv/o seats  were not opposed; therefore  the two candidates were elected by acclamation.  In Sechelt three were nominated to run for two two-year  seats On the village commission and they were Norman  G.B. Burley, lumberman; Laur-  itz P. Hansen, transfer operator and Frank 'P. Parker, merchant.  There will also be three seeking a seat on the school board  for a two year term. The three  nominated are Mrs. Ada Dawe,  housewife; Leo B. Johnson, garage operator and: Mrs. Margar  et McKee, wife of Dr. W.N. McKee.  The two nominated for seats  on Gibsons Village Commission are Frank Hicks, retired, *  and Herbert Henry Pay, retired. They will occupy seats  to be vacated by C.P. Ballentine and Fred Crowhurst.  In Sechelt the vacancies will  be retirement of Mr. Parker  who is seeking re-election and  the retirement of Alex Lamb.  The Sechelt School Board el-^  ection is the result of a change  in the School Act which states  representatives of organized  areas must be elected and not  appointed. In Gibsons the representative has one mere year;  to run so there will be an election in Gibsons for a school  trustee next year.  SUDAN IS TIMELY TOPIC - Alex Wilson Anderson of Roberts  Creek, right, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Anderson, was a guest panelist  last weekend: on KVOS-TV's Around the World Press Conference to  interview Mohamed Omar El Khidir, left, of Khartoum, Sudan.

'Paradoxically, the first figure  was "Circle in a big ring. All  join  hands    and   circle   left!"  All ages arrived at the Community hall on Monday, Dec.  1 at 7 o'clock with Morris Hem-  .treet instructing and vigorously singing the calls.  It was surprising to see how  Buy hose  Rats discussed  A meeting in the Legion  Hall, Sechelt, Dec. 1, wag remarkably well attended with  upwards of 70 citizens being  present.  The main subject discussed  was the menace of increasing  rat population in the village.  An interesting film on the subject was shown along with one  on fire prevention.  Speakers were Councillor  Frank Parker and Barry MacDonald, sanitation inspector.  The audience was in accordance with the remarks of the  speakers and full co-operation  both in pest control and fire  prevention was promised.  Gib s-ons Area Firemen's  Equipment fund has been put  to good use the firemen announce and 3-500 feet of one-  and-a-qiiarter inich hose has  been purchased from Crown  Assets. This hose will be ol  great help to firemen once  they get it uncrated and arranged for use with fire trucks.  The fund was augmented by  donations from Miss F. Potter,  Canadian Legion 109, Mr. and  Mrs. W. Ellis, United Church  Women's Association and Mrs.  McDonald, initials not available.  quickly the large gathering of  children, teen-agers and adults  fitted heel and toe and arm in  arm in the lively music.  Mr. Hemstreet praised the  quickness of the group at mastering the figures. It was "each  one teach one" as Mr. Hem-  street and a smattering of people who were familiar with  the steps, helped the others  find their way about the dances.  People who had not square  danced before finished the  evening '-4Pthg pretty well at  home with their feet and saying that they'd had a fine time.  Judging by the conversation  amongst the  chatting  dancers  between   sets,    most   will   be  bringing   another one  or   two  dancers, next Monday evening,  Dec. 8, when the group meets  again. If you don't get asked,  let this be your invitation. You  can be a -novice and still have  a  gay   time. The  entry fee is  only 25 cents for adults, 15 for  children.  Adults may stay  an  extra hour from nine to ten after  the   children   have   gone  home.

President Danny Smith introduced Lt. Gov." Stan. Collier  and Jerry Jardine, Lt. Gov.  elect. Mr. Collier after a brief  address inducted two new  members into Kiwanis, Rev. D.  Harris as the new. Chaplain  and Syd Smales as musical director.  Fred Bass provided entertainment and his Kiwanian  friend Dick Gardner as master  of black magic and his ventriloquist act proved pleasing.  The evening ended with a  short song fest.  Tickets for the ROPC Variety show in aid of St. Mary's  Hospital are on sale now at  various points on the Peninsula. Small girls are being fitted  at The Toggery for the dresses  they will model as also are several much bigger girls. Rehearsals are going on in various  homes and halls, costume designs are being born and the  art work is in full swing.  What this Roberts Creek  group wants to know is ��� are  there any men in this whole  area who can and will act a  little, sing a little or clown a  little?  WHO   IS i'TEENAGER?

Although  warned by the presence of a morality squad, of the illegality of  the raffle they intended to hold that evening, some particularly  astute businessmen slipped out through the kitchen with the tickets and the $5,000 draw was successfully made in an apartment  on a lower floor of the hotel. "   '  Whether or not the outlawing of raffles is wise legislation  is not in question. The fact is that a law, wise or unwise, was  cunningly and deliberately evaded by this group of so-called responsible citizens. Nor can it be argued that the end, proceeds to  aid the revelry fund of Grey Cup celebrations, justifies the means  What is happening to our individual moral responsibility?  How can any mature adult possibly aim criticism at our rising  generation, claiming weakness in their moral fibre? The old  adage 'Do as I say, not as I do' is outdated in this age of streamlined transportation and communication.  How often we hear youth censured for lack of interest  in education; yet what proportion of our community sets an example by showing any genuine interest themselves?  Perhaps the attendance figures in the report of annual  ���ratepayers' meetings may be some indication. In one of the larger attendance areas there were insufficient ratepayers present  to appoint a member to the board of representatives. Can we  blame our younger generation for this situation too?  Education is booming in our district. Not only is there a  Continued increase in our general attendance but a far larger  percentage of our students are remaining in our high schools to  acquire a senior education. Through the increased powers given  local authorities under the new School Act the so-called "seat-  warmers" are moving into gear and all the facilities available in  our schools are fast reaching the point of complete utilization.  Our student body as a whole is too often judged by, the  actions of one "out-of-step" student.  Education is a community affair that requires the example  and assistance of every good citizen. Let us recognize our responsibilities and support the plan for school development in our  district. Cou can help!  G.O. Fahrni,  Publicity chairman,  Sechelt S.D. No. 46.  Expensive anasthesia  It is surprising how much some people are willing to pay  for their anasthetics. An item in The News last week pointed out  that, during October, $2300 was collected in fines in the municipality by RCMP action. Of this, the police chief said, cases involving liquor made up the largest amount.  Considering that the purchasers of government liquor pay  exorbitant prices for what they get, and are then willing to add  many hundreds of dollars more onto their costs through court  action as a result of their anasthesia, one wonders if people who  scream about high prices and low earnings really know what  they're talking about. ��� The PoweU River News.  v  _��.;���  -**-*  I  i -  \ ^  BE SURE  :#HEV STdCKlNif  ARE     FILLED   / ^ I  MAIL iARLY  ^CHRISTMAS  Your mail will arrive at distant  points in Canada and the United  States in good time for Christmas if /ou observe the mailing  dates in the Post Office leaflet  which has been delivered to  your home.  -|( Make certain you have the  correct postal addresses  and please write or print  clearly and in ink.

MON��� WED., FRI..���1 to 4 pjn.  or  any time by appointment  PHONE 11Z-W ��� GIBSONS  Don't Say Bread  Say   '^GAVIN'S"  Letters to the editor  Editor: I was delegated by  Pender Harbour local of the  UFAWU to attend the recent  CCF-Trade Union conference in  Gibsons.  During the conference we studied the policy statements of the  CCF and the Canadian Labor  Congress. Both organizations are  unanimous in their desire to  form a broad new political party  for Canada. ITheir resolutions-  called for discussions with all  groups wishing to align themselves with this type of movement.  The CLC policy states that  they have no. desire to dominate  such a development but there  is the fullest desire for the  broadest possible participation  of all individuals and groups  genuinely interested in basic  democratic social reform.  Absolutely contrary to their  fine policies we found that the  hosts of the conference had excluded certain groups who had  already expressed their desire  to support such a Labor party.  The United Fishermen were  not acceptabe to the conference  as delegates. I made inquiries of  many of the delegates as to why  our organization was not allowed,.?-  to take part as other trade  unions were.  The only concrete answer I got  was from Tony Gargrave MLA,  who said that the CLC had flatly  stated that if we were allowed  to attend they in turn would  withdraw from the conference.  He went on to point out that  the UFAWA was in comparison  quite a small group.  It has become evermore obvious that the working people  of Canada must unite to elect a  government that is not dominated by capital.  But I feel quite sure that this  can never be achieved unless all  groups and individuals whose desire it is to work towards such  a goal are included.  Bob Lee, member UFAWA  �������-��..  In defence  of teachers  Canada's schoolteachers are  continually subject to unjustified criticism from parents, a  Winnipeg teacher contends in  the current Maclean's.  Worst of all, writes Sybil  Shack, the parents are critical  for the wrong 'reasons. Rather  than attacking teachera for so-  called "progressive" methods  of teaching, they should upbraid the system for its ultra-  conservatism ��� "next to tiie  church, the school is the most  conservative institution in our  society."  Miss Shack says that while  she likes teaching she is tired  of being 'the public conscience'  Often,-she-feels, a teacher instills certain values in the  minds of her pupils only to  have these same values negated by outside events.  "We tell the children that  all men are equal before God,  that the weak must ibe protected and cherished, that good  will triumph over evil ... Then  they hear how daddy has outwitted his competitor in business or go out to the football  field to see how the strong can  overpower the .weak."  Our Canadian community,  she claims, places more faith  in money than in literacy. But,  in placing money over scholar'  ship, the ordinary man's conscience bothers him ��� so he  tries to use his mind, by sneering at the teacher.  Editor: Sacred Cows? Not in  B.C., you say, Cows in our  land are only as sacred as a  side of beef. Preamble along  with us O Enlightened-One-to-  Be, to the Sacred Sunshine  Coast, and forget not what you  see.  Our efficient police force  would issue a well-earned tick-  jet to any human pedestrian  who would have the audacity  to deliberately walk out in  front of oncoming traffic, much  less stand in the centre of the  highway, but that white line  is holy ground. "Don't you dare  ihit that cow, Mr. Motorist.".  Garden robbers? Shrubbery  stealers? Penalized as the law  permits, and justly so! Should  one man live from another  man's garden? But wait, do  you see that beautiful new  bungalow ��� the one behind  that large herd of cows? They  happen to be standing on the  man's lawn eating his roses  and lilacs, they say he plans  to move out soon, seems as  though his lawn has become  "open range."  But what of the dead? (may  they rest in peace). Do you see  that large "sacred" herd brows'-  ing among the newly cut flowers and tombstones? That is  the little graveyard for the  Sunshine Coast. They say there  are very stringent laws applying to graverobbers and tombstone violators ��� for PEOPLE,  that is.

How ;dqes,:your school  raise fundstfor-ita.student projects? Hp^-does .. your school  pep up scHop]L^iyit?v  These and. dozens more were  the questions fired back and  forth across the conference table as student executive officers and teacher advisors gathered in the first Student  Council conference to be held  in the districts of Powell River  and Sechelt.  So much enthusiasm was gen  erated that a final resolution  called for the conference to become an annual affair. In the  fall of 1959 Brooks High will  be hosts to delegates from six  high schools.  Th conference clung to practical matters throughout the  sessions. Delegates discussed  through a pre-arranged agenda  Deposits at  new high  Deposits in the Bank of  Montreal have passed the three  billion dollar level for the first  time, according to the 141st  annual statement. The bank's  financial year ended Oct. 31.  Resources mounted to $3,277  million, an increase of $411  million over a year ago, the  bank reports, while deposits  stood at a ne^w high of $3,038  million, some $406 million  more than in 1957.  B of M's total loan figure of  $1,417 million, showed little  change from $1,438 of one year  ago.. Included are NHA loans,  themselves up more than $40  million to $171,371,272, enabling more Canadians to buy  . homes of  their  own.  The statement shows the B  of M's traditionally strong liquid position continuing, with  quick assets of $1,926 million  reported, representng 62.1 percent of liabilities to the public, as against 54.8 percent last  year.  Valuation of bank premises  also rose ��� from $36 million  in 1957 to nearly $41 million  ��� an indication of the continuing expansion of B of M facilities to meet growing requirements.  Earnings before income tax-,  es are at a new high of $22,889,-  690. After provision of $12,533,  000 to meet tax payments, a  net profit of $10,356,690 was  reported, $706,998 more than  the 1957 figure.  Payments to shareholders totalled $8,904,564 or $3,628,436  less than the bank's income tax  payments ��� leaving a balance  of earnings of $1,452,126 on operations of more than 750 B of  M offices in Canada and abroad  This amount, added to 1957  undivided profits of $2,113,834  permitted a transfer of $2 million to the bank's rest account,  leaving undivided profits at  $1,565,960 at Oct. 31. The B  of M resit or reserve account  now stands at a.new high level  of $120 million.  ways' and means  toi- students  ' to  assist' thei-ise'lveslih?'" extracurricular activities  sponsored  by the school.     ���-  Most high schools budgettecT  for such items as graduation'5  ceremonies? grants to school  clubs, purchase of school  awards, scholarship funds, year  book, memorial gifts to the  school, assistance to sports and  a variety of lesser endeavours.  The chief source of funds in  all schools was the membership fee which in some schools  is large enough to include a  yearbook and school paper  subscription for each student.  Other fund raising activities  range from simple sales of  cookies to the magnificent effort of Brooks High's Mardi  Gras ��� a combining of a variety show, an exhibition of  school work, carnival- games  and a lunch which involved everyone in the school and cater-,  ed to 2,000 visitors in one night  After an effort like that Brooks  does without fund-raising for  at least two years.  Delegates were articulate and  optomistic during the session  on school spirit. No time was  used for definitions in a conference in which the theme  had become "Let us be practical."  Delegates got down to cases  and each school had something  to add to the store of ways to  generate enthusiasm, loyalty  and sociability in a student  body.  The House system for furthering school sports was used  by. everyone. One high school  found that "house" parties  gave students an awareness of  the value of belonging to a  "House." School songs and  hymns play a great part in  some schools. In another, the  boys of grade XH have formed  an entertainment club to add  to the fun and seriousness of  school dances and assemblies.  Such endeavours as pep meets  before games, use of mascots  and radio plays over the school  public address system have  been found in some schools to  be effective boosters of group  enthusiasm.  Discussions continued on  school dances, assistance to  such topics as management of  clubs, and the organization and  administration of the council  itself.  Altogether, the practical  tone of the conference encouraged every delegate to take  part   in   the   discussions   and  ��� ��� '        ���'' \v*a   "*���, "rt'i ? ������">"*'���  TO OPEN OFFICE  Mr. and Mrs. G.R.

The Company voluntarily reduced its rates when hew tariff was issued effective June  20, 1957 and is now applying  for increase in the Horseshoe  Bay-Vancouver operation only,  which portion has not been altered since tlie Company commenced to operate from the  Peninsula to Vancouver}..

This house  is a very large one, rather severe in architecture and surrounded by thousands of acres  of beautiful park land.

The rhododendrons were in full bloom  at the time and I have never  seen such a brilliant showing.  Owing to their age, I suppose,  the shrubs were enormous by  our standards and we just  stood there and gazed at the  acres of gorgeous blooms of  all colors. After seeing the gardens, we paid our fee of half  a ��rown and visited the staterooms, finding the antique furniture interesting, particularly some needle point chairs,  the work of one of the Earls  of Harewood. Before leaving  we had tea at one of the coach  houses converted into a tea  room.  Another ?histonc residence  we visited was.- Temple New-  siam, four miles from Leeds.

It is now kept  up by the Leeds Corporation as  a museum of art treasures.and  the park contains two public  golf courses and a sports  ground as well aa some magnificent gardens, in the upkeep  of which 30 gardeners are employed.  Our trip through the rooms  took 90 minutes and we had  quite a long walk through the  gardens where we were again  impressed by the size and beauty of the rhododendrons. As  Temple Newsam was within;  a mile or so of our home before we came to Canada, we  were very interested in seeing  it again.  It was during our stay in  Yorkshire that we had our  only experience of shopping in  England and some of our impressions may be of interest.  Our general impression was  that the English have quite a  long way to go in modernizing  their stores and retail merchandising methods before they can  compare with stores on this  side of the Atlantic. As far as  we could see there were no  modern selfservice markets  such as we have, even in the  large cities. Also the stores  had primitive fixtures and  other facilities by our standards. For  instance,  we were  somewhat horrified to see the  butcher shops and fishmongers  displaying their stock on open  counters, with no protection  from, flies.  For groceries one goes to a  grocer's shop, for meat one  goes to a butchers shop. No self  respecting butcher -would sell  fish, so, for fish, one goes to a  fishmongers. For drug sundries and prescriptions see the  chemist but don't try to buy  stationery or a picture post  card at a chemist's shop because he won't have it. For this  merchandise one has to find a  stationers.  There are no hardware  stores but the ironmonger's  . shop is the nearest equivalent.  The three big chain store organizations in England are  Marks and Spencers whose  stores are similar to our variety stores, Woolworths and  Boots the Chemists. These  three companies have stores  in all major cities throughout  Englasd.  We found the store clerks  obliging and in York-_bire,  friendly. We were much amused the first time we went sSiop-  ping in the market place in  Harrogate when a sales girl  turned to me and in a broad  Yorkshire accent said "What  can I do for you luv." Later  we found that this was quite  the usual way to address a cus-  tomer.  I had almost forgotten to  mention the lack of standardization one finds in the electrical industry in Britain. One  can, of course understand the  scarcity of base plugs in old  buildings, but one wonders why  they have  so  many varieties,    <  Festive air at social  A festive air pervaded the 1  Surtees Hall at Halfmoon Bay  on the night of Sat., Nov. 29  when the Halfmoon Bay Auxiliary to St: Mary's Hospital.

Officials of������-tttie federation?  which represents more than  250 fire, casualty and automobile insurance companies in  Canada, recommend the following preparations for safe  winter driving:  Drive more slowly. Speeds  allowable under good -conditions become excessive on slippery streets.  Have the mechanical condition of your car checked, particularly brakes, steering mech  anism, lights,. heaters and de^  froste'rs.  Give pedestrians time ��� to  crosg streets safelv; winter  conditions make walking difficult too.  If you plan a considerable  amount of driving during winter months, have your car  equipped with snow tires or  chains.  Check for leakage in your  exhaust, muffler or tailpipe.  Danger from fatal carbon monoxide fumea is most acute during winter months.  If your car skids, turn your"  wheels in the direction of the  skid, but do not apply brakes.  On ice, start and stop gently.  Pump your brakes as you stop;  start off slowly in second or  high gear to obtain extra traction.  home cooking table which was  : laid    with    Christmas    cakes,  cookies,   cakes  and pies,   was  soon depleted.  i     For the children there were  balloon target and dart games,  with chocolate bars and pop as  . prizes.

Whitmore, director of fisheries for the Pacific Area, announced following a meeting  of Lower Mainland Fishery of  ficers in Vancouver.  Salmon net fishing on the  entire British Columbia coast  is closed by regulation from  Dec. 1 in each year to Jan. 31  following, with the proviso  that the area director of fisheries may authorize fishing  during that closed period provided a sufficent number of  salmon have reached the  spawning grounds.  This year, except for a light  run  of   early   fish,  there  has  been virtually no chum escapement to the important spawn-;;  ing grounds of the Lower Fraser since October. Stocks?bf  chum salmon presently in the  Fraser as revealed by test fishing supervised by fishery officers would be seriously depleted by any further fishing  effort this season and under  this decision will be fully reserved to meet reproduction  needs.  8    Coast News,  Dec.  4,  1958.  ancej;\��ssay  A-:  -c.v  %  roze  B  0  LET US FTOSTFR^OF YOUR WATEHL1NE  TRENCHING ��� SAWDUST FILL ON ROCK  LET US GIVE YOU A PRICE |  FRANK WHITE  Phone  P.H. 743  MADEIRA  PARK  JUST LIKE BROADWAY  Shades of Broadway!

West  Many legends have grown  up around St. Nicholas, who  was Bishop of Myra, Asia Minor, in the fourth century, A.D.  and whose feast day falls this  week, Dec. 6.     .  The patron saint of sailors in  some parts of tSurope, he is  best known asi the children's  saint and pur Santa Claus is  thought to be a derivation of  the Dutch Sinter .Klaas. In  most countries in Europe, children celebrate his festival,  though the traditions vary  from one country to another.  In the great migration from  Europe which followed World  War II many of the old traditions have been brought to  new lands, to become adapted  to the customs of a new way  of life.  Our children have adopted  the Canadian custom of writing letters with their requests  to Santa Claus at the North  Pole, but the carefully printed  letters are not mailed, nor taken to the Good Spirit's department store representative. Instead they are tucked into the  toes of their shoes and left on  the doorstep on St. Nicholas  Eve.  The shoes also hold a small  package of "Lebkuchen" a traditional German honey and  spice cookie for St. Nicholas'  refreshment and a freshly  scrubbed carrot for his big-  white horse. In the morning  wihen eager, pyjama clad children rush to open the door  they find the letters, cookies  and carrots have gone and in  their place the shoes contain a  email gift and a bag of candy.  I recently overheard someone hoping St. Nicholas will  bring them a pair of gloves  again this' year, and caught unprepared, I realised that another facet has been added to  cur family traditions. When St.  Nicholas rides abroad on the  Sunshine Coast, and his horse  leads him unfailingly to the  many homes -where the small  pairs of shoes are left on the  windowsill or doorstep, his  pack will contain three pairs  of gloves annually for the West  children.  ��� "$��-*  '^fe*:  r-f   FOR   DAD   Slippers ��� Fleece-Lined Boots  rZ   ��� UK   MOM   Dainty Slippers��� Wide Selection of Footwear  * FOR CHILDREN  ^   FOR   TEENAGERS   Playpens ��� White Rubber Boots  WIGARD'S SHOE STORE  Phone SECHELT 25G  Savage and Bonny Stuart Shoes  Rubber Boots, Etc.
