Canadian Forest  Products Port Mellon mill was  .fatally injured Nov. 17 when  one. leg was so badly mangled  in machinery that it had to be  amputated.  Owing to. the ferry having  been knocked out of commission that night a Port Mellon  launch braved the storm to  get the man to the North Vancouver hospital where, he died  later. An inquest was ordered.  Port -Wei-on trip an eyeopener  In making an . inspection  tour of the Canadian Forest  Products Port Mellon plant to  watch the processing of its  pulp  product from    start    to  finish, like the Boy Scouts,  should be prepared to set  aside at least two .hours. , If  you have a small velocipede  take it along with you so you  can at least keep up with Dan  Williamson, the manager of  the plant. .  Some 25 persons representing the Gibsons Board of  Trade and Kiwanis Club made  the trip on Tuesday of last  week and .to say the least,  -had their eyes opened by the  extent - of the plant operation.  Broken into small parties the  visitors were taken through  the plant from the beginning  of the operation, to the finished prcduct.     - ���   '     .    ,  Following the inspection  the party sat down to a really  filling dinner; in the company  cafeteria, with the compliments  of Canadian Forest Products.  ���    To try    and    cover    every  minute of''the more than two  hour trip which started at the  deckside  where a large    grab  poured chips from barges s into, a huge hopper  feeding an  endless belt, would require >too  many columns of space. Anyhow,    following    the    endless  belt, as some brave spirits did  up a long incline was an opening test of    stamina.    Having  passed: this hurdle,   one    was  ready for  anything.    On    the  way the   guide    pointed    out  various     contraptions     which  which measured    or    weighed  the chips  as they passed  and  one   which  aided  by  magnets  drew anything metallic    from  the  chips.  If one followed, the. chips  too literally, he would finish  up iri* a chip bin which seemed  ^as tall as: the tallest Vancouver building. The chips poured in endlessly. One silo contained fir . chips, another, hemlock and another cedar. There  were six silos the bottpms.of  which tapered V to aV funnel  through which the chips "gravitated to   a    ihovihfi   circular  platform which in turn fed  the chips to another endless  belt and sent them on their  wray to the digesters. But first  a word about the conveyors,  endless rubber belts which  travel at 300 feet a minute  carrying 15 pounds of chips  per foot. They would have  simplified travel if the party  could have climbed aboard and  really saw what happened to  the chips.    ;  (To   be   continued)  Go to hospital  On Saturday Mr. Serlui of  Keats Island was taken to hospital in Vancouver. He suffered :paralysis from his waist  down. He had been ill for a  w^eek, but owing to weather  and other emergencies, a doctor had not been immediately  available. ���  Mr. Orville Becker was taken from Gambier by special  boat to Horseshoe bay, thence  to Vancouver, where he is  hospitalized with    pneumonia.  the! University of.V Manitoba,  graduating in 19b3."He* set up  his first practice7 in_ .-Carman,  Manitoba, and later moved1 to  Taber, Alberta. In;- 19P9 ~ he  came to Vancouver and except  for a year as superintendant  of the hospital-in White Horse  in ' the ... Yukon Territory, he  spent the rest of his.; professional  life  in Vancouver.  Hev retired in 19 52- to his  summer home at Granthams  Dr. Warren H. Lang, father  of. Ben Lang of Sechelt, died  at the age of 79, in Vancouver  On Wednesday,  Nov.  16.  He was. .well known in the  Gibson's _ Granthams area,  where he had had his summer  Rome since 1910, and to which  he-retired in 1952. He occasionally, and quite unofficially assisted Dr. Fred Inglis. of  Gibsons in the  early years.  He practised medicine in  Vancouver 43 years and' was  among the first to perform  plastic surgery there.  Funeral' services were held  11 a.m. Friday in St. Paul's  Anglican Church following a  private family' requiem at 9  a.m. in the chapel. Rev. Pat  Ellis  officiated.  Dr. Lang, a former chairman  of the school board and Fellow  of the American College of  Surgeons, and his brother, the  late Dr.. B.E. Lang, were  .among the original tenants of  Landing. About 18 months ago  he was moved to Steadmari's  Private Hospital.  Dr. Lang served as Captain  in   the  Canadian Army Medical Corps    during    the    First  World War,- and later made a  special study of plastic surgery.  Predeceased    by    his    wife,  Dr. Lang leaves three sons, S.  Howard Lang of New    South'  Wales, Australia; Rev. George  W.

There are various spots which under snow and ice conditions .  just cannot be navigated without the aid of something to help  traction.  Knowing these spots exist and knowing that ccmes the time  winter after winter when their services are needed, why cannot something be done about it, ��� something elementary ���  something like putting a pile or bank of sand at a strategic  spot where local citizenry could wihen the situation arose, arm  themselves with shovels and keep traffic moving.  If this were done it would not be necessary for any person  to have to phone the roads foreman during last weeks storm  only to find out he was on a holiday. It would not be necessary  for them to phone the Provincial department of public works  garage and get no reply whatsoever.  It would not be necessary for nine persons to suffer injury  "through falls on slippery highway* ��� and some of the injuries  rather serious.  All-this could be largely done away with if banks of sand  were available ��� not on the. level at the top of hills -_ but at  various points-on hills where they would do the most good.  They could have eliminated the traffic jam which increased  because one ferry's traffic had not been cleared before another  came along.  Probably the roads department, minus its foreman, decided  the weather was too bad for work and departed for their respective homes early, like other people did. That may or may  not have been the case.  The roads department has every right to explain its actions  or it's inaction. There might have been a reason.

The Gibsons and District  Ratepayers Association is hot  dead. Unfortunately it is dormant, a condition that  has been the . experience of  many organizations in this area  over the years. Organized in  1946, its registration with the  Registrar of Societies in Victoria is still in good standing,  and' it will be heard from  again. In recent years, the  ratepayers organization has  met with considerable success  in electing its nominees to  the Village Commission.  In regards to the row over  Shoal Bay logging operations,  by asking for delay by the  government in Cancelling; the  permit of the loggers, this in  view of l��ss of tax revenue,  The commission did leave itself in a position to be charged with favoring the representations of the loggers group.  The Commision now states  that it is neutral in its attitude to this matter and that is  the proper stand to take in a  dispute  of this   kind.  Without in any: way entering into an argument for or  against the continuance of  logging operations at Shoal  Bay, because no matter what  decision is made by the. B.C..  Government's Lands Department, some people are going to  get hurt, may I refer to other  matters.  These disputes direct attention to the undecided views  of people in this area, and  the village Commission itself,  in regards to the future, of  Gibsons District. We cannot  have it both ways, and the  sooner we get off the fence,  the better it will be for all  concerned.  If we want industry and  business, then we ought not  to be boosting this area as a  place forpeople to retire. I  aria referring not to any industry located som* distance  ffcom residential properties  but to those that may be located in. such districts where  residence is desirable.  Lack of planning in the past  has proved adverse to writing  an efiie|ent Zonning Bylaw and  ���:-we hadiYtd imake the beat of a  bad job in this regard.  I anticipated;, .that. At, would-  be rifecessiaxy.. to review - the  present Zoning By_aw from  time to time, but unless there  is any indication that an ap-  plicaion to change over from  a residential to a business,  is entirely desirable and  backed by the people who  can stay iri business,  then it should be refused:. I  have a knowledge where  changes from residential were  authorized in two cases. In  the first instance the lots still  remain without, a building of  any kind, and in the second  case the business went out of  RESERVE YOUR TICKETS  EARLY  for the  NEW YEAR'S EVE BALL  BIGGER & BETTER THIS YEAR  GliSONS SCHOOL HALL  CONTACT LOCAL KINSMEN  existence.  -���Let us;now deal with water  service and fire protection.  I have rnany friends in the  outside area, but it would be  difficult to advocate that Gibsons Village ratepayers should  lie called upon to finance services for people who pay no  taxes in Gibsons. As a matter  of self protection, the Village  must keep, a close X eye on  these matters^ The people in  these outside areas should organize their own protection.  YPeopie iri non - j organized  areas are the responsibility of  the authority to whom V they  pay taxes. Any press dre in  connection with water; fire protection, or other services, hught  npt to be exercised updh the  Village of Gibsohsi^Varid-^; the  people -iri the y village 7: rhust  have first call on''these services.  .. I could say more Mr. Editor*  but I hope that I have, said  enough to   start  an   argument  for or against creating as far  as possible, a more or less  strictly residential area in Gibsons itself, in this way encouraging, people with an assured incbrrie to reside here  and spend their money in the  district, providing local prices  are reasonable. ��� large and increasing residential area, will  in itself, assist in maintaining  a steady income for the nece_  sary businesses that operate  where there is a sufficient  population to patronize them.  , As indicated already in this  letter, Gibsons lacks a defin-.  ite objective. Some want industry. Some want to remain  residential. Let Us make a  decision and go after bur objective with a little more vim  and energy.  .    - '      Robt.

He lost an  arm and the other was mangled; this in addition to other  injuries. This man met the  aftermath of disaster with  amazing courage and adapted  himself to the. new way of  life. Recently I saw a letter  he wrote picking out the keys  on a typewriter with one finger, and it was ah amazing  illustration of the indomitable  will of man to carry on and  overcome.  The amazing courage of  handicapped people is a constant source of wonder to  others. A young man, suffering from poor health, went to  see a doctor. The physician  saw the youth was indulging  in self-pityi "Come with me  while I make a few calls,"  he said, "We will go into  your case later."  The first patient they saw  was a young woman suffering  from a spinal disease. She had  no control over certain muscles and she was in constant  pain. She never uttered a word  ipf complaint, but was using  a typewriter especially adjusted for her, and was quite  cheerful as she laughingly  boasted about her increase in  speed. Then they visited a  blind   boy   who  was  weaving  BY  (,II!NIIV\ HJtlJiM  m ���'  Corsages  Weddings  Funeral Designs  ��� -AX Xti:"   X :    ' ": *��� V.-_ .'"'.���  Plants.

His eagerness  was     only  *. ���   *     *  matched  by  his  accuracy-.  " How does * it look?" he  asked with a smile. He was enjoying every minute of. his  work. The third patient was  an epileptic setting type for  advertisements' He had suffered many setbacks, but goffered no complaint. The  youth said to. the doctor: "I  am more than ashamed of  myself. I see now that I am  only one of a vast number of  handicapped people and from  now on I am through with  murmuring and  complaining."  The list of handicapped  people who have been useful  and happy is a. very- long one;  it would require a library of  books to list even their names.  Two of the greatest poets  who ever lived, Homer and  Milton, were, blind, while  Dante was almost totally without sight in his  later    years.  Milton might have become  discouraged, but he visited  the great Galileo when the  astronomer was frail and totally blind, and the unwavering courage and cheerfulness  of Galileo inspired hirn to  bear his own misfortune.  Henry Fawcett lost his eyesight tf through an accident  when he was 15, but by sheer  grit and perseverence he became postmaster-general of  England with over 90,000  employees under his direction.  William Hickling Prescott  lost his eyesight while a student at Harvard yet he lived  tp write such classical books  as, "The conquest of Mexico."  and "The History of the Reign  of Ferdinand., and Isabella."  In preperation for such works  the blind man studied    more  than a hundred books.  * * *  Helen Keller was born blind,  deaf and durnb, yet her magnificent ��� achievements, as well  ; as her? ^neonquerablex good  riatureV ahd/Vcheerfulness have  made her one of the wonders of  modern times. ,'  As far as financial handicaps are concernedy we know,  a very large nuber of the  world's -leaders have been  born - in humble .circumstances  and,.; in many cases,.. actual  poverty.  A distinguished lawyer, speaking of the hard conditions  of his early life, said: "I  know n$)w that those years:. of '  struggle, when I wore ' very1 ���  shabby clothes were good for  me; they, helped me to develop backbone and determination."  The Order of the handicapped is an important one> and  on its long list of names aire  many of the noblest men and  women who have   ever lived.  ���  A Christmas atmosphere prevailed at Mrs. Bradford's  when Mrs. Hodgson gave a  demonstration of gift wrapping  following the business session  of the W.I. November meeting.  The simplest - remembrance  should be wrapped with care,  for the wrapping expresses the  thought behind the gift.

McNUTT  Jimmy Wallace and Ray.  DeLong had a narrow escape  at Earl's Creek. When a bridge  went out a large alder wasv  felled across the space.  Jimmy started over but slip-.  ped and fell in on the upper  side. He managed to hang on  to the tree, but his feet were  carried undernath it by the  rush of water which was near  8 feet deep. Ray? caught hold  of _ a branch and reaching  out got hold of Jimmy who  then let go of the tree. The  wat er was so swift that Ray  was also dragged in and they  both shot down the creek together. "Very fortunately they  managed to get out on a gravel bar about 300 feet further  down stream.  Jimmy had his tomahawk  out for the' vandel who used  hallowe'eh as an 7 excuse to  ruin his wife's canning by  puncturing the lids with a  pocket knife, and stealing a  nighty of the line.  With the birth of a .daughter Darlene Leona, to Mr.  and Mrs. D.E. Gark of Minstrel Island, Carrie Clark  becomes a grandma for the  second time.    .."  Flo and Jack. Williams,  Jackie and Betty came put  of. their house and locked the.  door. There was a rattle in the  garbage pail and out walked  a skunk. They all stood frozen while Mr. Skunk strolled; leisurely around and then  walked! over Flo's feet, turned  the:, corner and canie face to  face with:the ;cat. "That idoes  it"',; breathed Jackie. But no,  Mr. Skunk turned back, crossed Flo's feet again arid went  off into the bush, a narrow  escape-indeed.

Before moving to Abbotsford,  Jack worked in the machine  shop in Port  Mellon.  Mrs. G . McDonald is reported ill in Vancouver, and  waiting for a bed in "the hospital.  .Mrs. Hodgson, and    the.  nice  . thing   about   gift  wrapping  is  that it requires no special talent nor anyt great expense.  Showing first how attractive  gift boxes can be made from  wall paper, then demonstrating  the correct method : to wrap  and 'decorate and make the-  fancy glamour bows, the; attention turned next ;tb< novelty wrapping.  Novelty wrapping requires  a certain amount of imagination, but proves to be a fascinating ^pastime. Among, the  novelty wrappings demonsrat-  ed was a small sleigh with  peppermint candy runners and  drawn by a tiny. reindeer. A  round salt container with tartan and cellophane made an  attractive container for a pair  of sox.  A gay summer    doll's    hat  with a remoyeable crown held  a   small    piece    of    Jewelry.  Nylons were concealed',   in    aV  miniature table lamp..  For the camera enthusiast  films' were packed into a  realistic looking camera made  from a cereal box with aluminum . painted cotton spools  for. lens and film winder.  With a little imagination,  plus some crepe paper and a  head, a jar of jelly was made  to resemble and-old fashioned  lady.    Fancy    tumblers     also  make pretty containers for  jelly. The Christmas, pudding  that is packed in the" family  parcel might lock exciting  when it comes from the steamer, but never glamorous. Mrs.  Hodgson showed that by wrapping with striped tissue, and  making a clown's head from  a rubber ball, adding a neck  ruffle and a fool's cap the  pudding is transformed into  the funniest of clowns. i  The' speaker concluded by  saj'ing that gift wrapping is  a facinating pastime and  once started ori it, the ideas  just come naturally.  The next irieeting   ^will    be  the annual meeting   held    on-  Tues.,   Dec.   6,  in  the  United  church hall.

Considerable good was accomplished at  Ottawa and committees were  . set up to*, go into ��� the various  problems. He forecast a continuing committee coming into  being something which the C.  C F. had. advocated.  Income of farmers had dropped which Mr. Webster thought  Was hot a good trend. The C.  C.F., he said, was urging the  government to establish. an  Agricultural commission to  study problems of rural life.  It might take a couple of years  to complete the study but he  thought it should be done. He  favored the appointment of  the Clyne commission to study  the milk situation but thought  the sanitation aspects of the  report only one ?rigle; He  could see as the result of the  report a tying together of all  legislation concerning the pro"  duction and sale of milk.  British Columbians had the  lowest milk consumption record in all Canada , he added.  In conclusion he said the  CCF. in looking into the future must appeal to the thinking man and woman.

Canada's  greatest .single sports event, is  finally being played, in the  West. Saturday is Grey Cup  day in Vancouver from 9-3CV  in the morning when the parade starts, to 1.15 kick-off  time, and into the small hours  of the morning when the  game will have been replayed  for the  umpteenth time.  Edmonton Eskimos were un-  doubtably the team to represent the west from the start  of the season. The Montreal  Alouettes had a little more  trouble in gaining the honour  to represent  the  East.  It should be a battle between the terrific passing arm  of the Alouettes Sam Etche-  yerry and the grinding ground  attack of Edmonton's Kwong,  Bright, Miles.and Parker.  The outcome" of the game  will probably be decided' on  a fumble or intercepted pass  but "I Predict" tells me that  the Eskimos split "T" and  double fullback formation will  be toQ much for Montreal _���  Eskimos to win.
