Ko other season is like Christmas and: certainly npne more  significant Christmas accents the spiritual values that have endured for almost two thousand years by which all men are  joined in a common family. This, assuredly, is a great inheritance. ,. <  The star that guided the Three Wise Men is still the guiding  light of gc odwill which promises to illuminate the world. With  these, thoughts, then, let us not be unmindful of the great gifts  with which, we as British Columbians, have beeri endowed.

Mr.  Gaglardi minister of highways.  Here is the letter:  pear Mr. Gaglardi: -  I am writing to support a  bri,eJ! "presented to the Department : of Highways by 7M[r. Q-:  MV Russell secretary of an  "emergency committee for the  tflc-oded-out residents in the  Wilson Creek district.. The actual flood: was in the vicinity  of Chapman' and Mission  creeks. I have toured the  flood area thoroughly and discussed v the situation personally with many of the flood  victims. I have visited the  washed-out bridge on Mission  Creek, the dam at the junction  pf Chapman and Mission  creeks and;Nthe new 48tinch  culvert where "Chapman Creek  Mrs Mills  A "going away" party was  held at the home o&; Mr. and  Mrs. Fred dike DecJ�� 13 for  Mrs. Fred: Mills, ;with Mrs.  Joe Rogers .and. Mrs. - O.K.  Engen ���7asv co-hostesses, assited  by MrsL McDougal and Mrs.  'Oike, V' ;Vv. v'V";V; v"  The specially decorated cakes  ^ivere made .by Mrs. ��� Harold  Nelson andV.Mrs. Tom' Parish  It was a complete surprise to  the honor guest who received  a set of cameo necklet and ear  rings to match from all her  neighbors in her block Vand a  few individual 7 remembrances.  She was also presented with a.  crocheted   -carnation corsage  made by Mrs. Engen as was.  ���also an out of town guest Mrs.  Melvin Hilde from North Dakota U.S.A.  A few: games were enjoyed  by all before refrshmnts wr e  served. The telephone staff of  which Mrs. TMills was an operator presented her with -a. love-  lyfigurine lamp earlier. . The  Mills family will make their  future home in Dawson Creek  B.C. where Mr. Mills will continue as foreman of _3>C. Power Commission after the family spending Christmas with  Mrs. Mills mother in Quathia-  ske  Cove V.I.  passes  under the highway.  I strongly urge the Department cf Highways to make a  formal investigation - of the  .flood which,' tb-Jugh^s^jious,  for. the resident-'"concerneot,"  was limited in area. The advisability, of continuing the  dam at Chapman Creek should  be investigated, and the-adequacy of the 48-inch culvert  at Chapman Creek under the  Sechelt Highway should; be  questioned in the event that  the dam at Chapman and Mission creeks again gives away  under flood conditions.  I would further recommend  that a steel and concrete bridge  of 50 ton capacity he placed  at the intersectioii of Mission  Creek and Sechelt highway.;  -Much heavy Indus I rial and  logging equipment passes over  this bridge, and since there is  no other detour, 50 ton capacity, in the opinion of local  residents,   is  a minimum.  I, understand that the brief  enclosed a list of damage suffered by the residents. I would  urge the government to offer  to the Wilson Creek district  compensation on the same  basis as the Provincial -Government aided North Vancouver.. ' '" ' ' ��� V '  Anthony J.

Oswald)  "The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we  beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten son of the  Father, full of grace and truth."  These few words state fully the great event of the Incarnation, the greatest that ever crossed the stage of history. Although so wonderful, it is told so simply; as it  were the blending of earth and heaven naturally as in  ithe horizon: Mary and the Divine Annunciation; the shepherds and the Angels, the Wise Men and the Star, and the  lowly Birth b'F.the, Son of God. Surely such naturalization  -of the Divine is beyond the imagination of man, and intelligible, only, as a record of fact.  The incidents around the Nativity have caught and held  through the centuries, the attention of the world. Countless millions have paid their tribute to them in every generation. Poets have tried to catch their glory in verse,  painters on canvas and musicians in harmony. All souls have  bowed 'in humble adoration. In spite of cynicism, skepticism and all detracting forces, they are still very dear to  the heart of the world.  While there is much in the popular observing of Christinas it smothers its true significance under materialism;  nevertheless there is still at the centre the eternal truth of  (the Incarnation ��� Emmanuel, God with us. The decorations, the lights, the exchanging of good wishes and gifts,  the generous spirit aid the joy that are abroad, all bear  ���witness to this in one way or another and to its underlying truth: "God so loved the world that he gave his  /only begotten Son., that whosoever believeth in him should  not perish, but have everlasting life."  In Christmas lies the secret that can bring lasting peace  to the world. This, peace will, not be found through conferences, compromises, pacts and alliances at the human  level. True reconciliation of human lives and interests must  be sought' at the Divane level.  Christmas brings before us the great fact of the Eternal Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man in  Jesus Christ, which inspired the angelic song "Glory to  God in the highest and on earth peace, goodwill towards  men." Here all hearts can coalesce. In the light of the  Fatherhood of God and the' Brotherhood of Man in Christ,  ''All men's good will come each man's, rule, and peace like  a shaft of light will lie across the earth."

Red Cross disaster services  looked after 312 individuuals,  members cf 72 B.C. families  who lost all theh' possessions  in disastrous fires during ihe  present year, reported Dr. G.  F.R. Elliot, chairman of this  committee. In addition to emergency bedding and clothing,  some 500 quilts made by Red  Cross women's work committees, were distributed. This  assistance went to 35 scattered  areas in the province when  Red Cross branch chairmen reported these tradgedies.  New cases of tuberculosis  appear in Canada at the rate  of 30 a day - which works  out to approximately 10,000  new cases yearly. The object  iof the Christmas Seal Sale,  'being conducted now, is to  gain funds for a more intensive tuberculosis preventative  programme .  This verse was written about 50 years ago by a young woman  of 19 years, busy about her housework.  Christmas is a time when Sweet Mothers, quiet and patient  Women's Auxiliaries and others who labour .in the background'  do not get the thanks and applause that they deserve. They  labour that those whom they love may be happy and joyful.  They have "Martha's hands'"' but a "Mary mind" and surely  a crown of blessing awaits them.       N Anon  Sight reading  or phonics  which is best?  It has beenW. charged that  our public schools are turning  out illiterates, that millions of  school age youngsters are sirn  *ply not learning to read. Bewildered and indignant parents  want to know if this is true.  The charge hits directly at"  the new method of teaching;  reading by sight ��� the "Word  Method" -- rather than by  sound, the system by which  former generations learned to,**.'  read.  fc''v  Examining the case for each  method, January Readers Digest finds advantages in each,  and urges that the two methods be intelligently combined  in teaching.  Supporters of the old way  of teaching reading by ear  cite the importance of memorizing the ABC's and learning  that each letter or combination of letters represents a  spoken soundV They also point  out that this method, known  as phonics, practically guarantees reading ability at an  early age. A phonics1 trained  child who has completed the  first grade can read eveir long  words which.he has never seen  before.  *.      *  ��� ��� *  Sight-reading advocates say  ��� their system helps children to  read more' easily and with  greater'' pleasure.' They point,  too, to a report compiled in  1949, based on 230,000 read '  ing scores from 60 communities, which indicated that  children are steadily becoming  better readers.  Conceding advantages of the  modern sight method, the Digest reports, however, that observation of hundreds of youngsters, showed "serious flaws"  in this system. It produces  poor spellers, and some of the  modern texts are dull, repetitious and often so simple  that many bright pupils lose t  (interest.  ���������    ��� *     *     *  Tb parents whose children  are backward in reading, Reader's'Digest offers this advice.  1. Help your child, at    home.  2. Be sure the home   'enviro-V  mentis favorably to-   reading   ^  - more t_n4 spent with books   .  jEUidVless wit^rradio, TV,    the  movies. 3. _��6ri't undermine  your child's faith in his teacher or'his school.

But to the members of the  Haida  tribe,  the    outstanding,,  moment was when their treos-  ured British navel canon was -  presented to the hospital as a  "thank you" gesture for the  new service. For more than -  ioo ye_.rs this momento of  British colony days has- lain  on the shore of Masset village  coveted by many visiting officials. Chief W.

As youngsters,  getting gives.us more fun and  _or some people    it    remains  tbat way, but that is generally  st sign     of    immaturity.    The  ���"White  Gift    Services"     now  gaining  such e popularity     in  schools and churches is an excellent  idea.  When Thomas Caflyle    was  a. six-year-old boy, he was left  in. charge of his  parents' cottage. A beggar came    to    the  door and asked    for    a    gift.  __e lad went to his money-box  s___t emptied its contents  into  the beggar's hand. Many years "  Xaier, -Carlyle  wrote:   "I have  aaever forgotten the happiness  __at Hooded my soul. For the  ____ lime I understood that it  ss feetter to give than it is to  receive.  A wealthy man was asked  what had brought him the  most happiness. He replied: "It  was paying off the mortgage  on a widow's home which was  in danger of being sold over  2_t head.  1 Mr. George Pullman, inventor of the Pullman car who  _.eca_Tie a millionaire, said:  "For many years I worked for  _ few dollars a week; now the  hours were long and the work  _ard and I have never been  happier. My moi/ey has  brought endless anxieties and  responsibility.  In one of my books for  boys, I told this story, which  "W__*��r_e in every detail. When  fall came a few years ago, a  _oys' class in a Sunday School  _fc_x_ itself in an unusual pos-  itataa. It had $15 in the treasury left over from the previous  season. Such a thing had nev-  0r ^happened before*, so the  fcerys ��� there were 25 of them-  ___et In a serious mood to decide which was the best way.  to, spend the money. The teacher .threw the meeting ��� open  fer suggestions,- and there  were plenty of them.  One i)oy suggested a corn  roast He knew the very place  wl_ere they, could eat, and he  deemed to think that there  wouldn't be much of the $15  left when the party was over.  The- boys liked the idea; it  seemed a good one to them.  Another boy, however, said  il__tt -since the class had gone  in- for .corn roasts on two or  ��_=_ mother occasion, -thev  anight have weiners and7 rolls  this time. That seemed a goo*1  one too, so bct-h corn and  weiners had plenty of support.  Then one boy got up and  made a short speech. He was  _ shy fellow and never had  aiauch ���to say. The teacher never remembered him speaking  _p before. He. said he liked  "j___li corn and weiuer. and  ���either kind of party would  esjjit him. But ��� he reminded  -them that they had in their  school a 17 year-old boy. who  .had been .stricken with infinite paralysis when ��� an., infant.���  As a result he had not been  able to walk and was shut off  from most of the fun that  ether boys had. He suggested  that instead of spending the  xssoney on themselves, the class  sSiou'ld use the money to buy  the cripple a wheel chair.  if * *  Every boy in the class  agreed that this was the best  suggestion yet; several of.  t-iem wondered why they had  not- thought about it themselves, f or they had seen the.  t>ogr carried into Sunday school  ���each week by his father and  placed in his seat. A commit-  _2e q�� two was appointed to  find out the exact cost of such  _ c_air, and when it was found  thai it would be more than  twice $15 the boys all agreed  to put so    much    aside    each  make the presentation then,  week until Christmas and  In the. meantime, neither the  boy   nor  his parents  were  to  know   anything about it.  *     *     *  The presentation  was made  on    Christmas    Day,    which  that    year    fell    on    a    Sunday.  The   crippled  boy,     who  knew  nothing   about  it,   was  carried by his   father int0 his  usual place; and at the proper  time the teacher, on behalf of  the   class,   presented   a   handsome wheel chair to the happiest  and   most  excited     boy  in the city. It was a great day.  In speaking of    it    afterward  the  teacher  said:   "We  never  had a   better    time.    Nothing  like it ever happened in    our  school  before.

Commission replies  to Shoal Bay letter  (The following letter was  prepared and passed by The  Village Commission for publication, at last Tuesday night's  Commission meeting).  VE&itor: Re.the letter in your  issue of Dec. 8 from the sec-  r-etary of the Beach Property  Association in answer tQ mine  of Nov. 18: My letter was, as  stated therein, ^to publicise  some established facts"., .The  letter . from the secretary . appears  to  confirm  those  facts. ;  Reference is made to testimony by a village , commissioner at a hearing at the Vancouver Court House, July 22,  1954. The Board of Commissioners was not represented  at that hearing; peculiar to  this, land-use pern.it as usual,  the board was not informed of  this hearing. However, it is  understood*, that a man,, who  happened to be a Village Commissioner was called as a  witnessj' either on his own  account or representing some  other body. Very likely the  court, in establishing his identity, brought out his status as  a village  commissioner.  A parallel instance was the  hearing at the School Hall,  where the writer was called  to give evidence as a private  citizen. The eourt at that  time asked, and established,  that I held the position of municipal clei*k. To avoid any/  misunderstanding I was careful to point out that I was  riot appearing on the stand in  that capacity, but as a private  citizen, possessed of some  knowledge of the timber industry, and long familiarity  with the district. This did not"'  preclude the secretary of the  Beach Property; Owners Association, on cross examination,  from asking questions that  should only have been asked  of a  village official.  It is also    stated   that    an- ,<���  other  commissioner,    at     the  School    Hall    hear\r.<j    sr.ated  the  commission   could   see  no  harm in logging operation:, in  Shoal  Bay. This seems to  be  in accord with     the     board's  letter of Sept.    21st    to    the   h  minister  of lands  and forests  which stated    in    port    "The  ���Board  of Commissioners have  not found the use of this booming ground  in any way    detrimental to   municipal    interests   or  advantage".    I would  ' suggest that if the    board    is  wrong in  that opinion, owing  to facts not having been made  known   to  them,  that  opinion  could be revised, on presenta*  tion   of  such   facts.  However.,  f might further suggest    that  the board  would  be likely to  consider  only  facts,  hot     the  extremely   fanciful    claims    I.  heard made at the hearing at .  the School. Hall.  Ih respect to the feeling-expressed by the.Beach Property  Owners Association that the  Village Commission should re- :  main "neutral", this cannot be  accepted in any matter involving public interest of the residents  and ratepayers of.    th��  Village. The Board of Commissioners are elected to protect and advance those interests as far as possible. If anything threatens to reduce the  income of these ratepayers, or  to prevent the expansion of  that income, the board must  be concerned. Conversly, if  anything is causing damage to...  property owners, or to their  living conditions, dut of proportions to general benefits  accruing, the board must also  be concerned. Certainly, a  public body should not be  "neutral" in matters of public  interest.  Robert Burns  Clerk.

The British Columbea  Automobile Association reminds motorists that S-D Day  _ was only! a symbol; safe driving should be a year-round  habit.  Seventy percent of highway  fatalities are caused by driver error, says the BCAA.'  Improve your driving habits  and be a safe driver.  Every driver uses his brakes  hundreds of times every time  he takes out his car, but according to the AAA traffic  experts, many drivers do not  know how to use their brakes  in an emergency. They have  never learned how to take a  sharp curve properly, or how  to get out of a skid.  The BCAA offers these tips  for using car brakes safely.  1.  On wet,  snowy    or    icy  Trustees  look ahead  B.C. School Trustees'  Association has set its' 1956  convention for Cranbrook,  probably in October. Tentative dates were set at an executive meeting in Victoria  following a session with Education Minister Williston to  discuss requested legislation  and other questions which  developed from the 1955 convention at Qualicum Beach  and  Parksville.  President L.-W. Wood, Armstrong, has set up a special  committee to keep in contact  with 'Mr. Williston so that  trustees can be informed  quickly on proposed changes  in school legislation or administration. Committee members are R.H. Reeve, Victoria;  A.D. Rundle, Chilliwack; President Wood; and Mrs. W.E.  Ricker, Nanaimo.  P.H. Hoskins of Nelson, replacing George Mermet, also  of Nelson, as representative  from West TKbotenay to the  BCSTA Executive, was placed  on the association committee  dealing -with status of principals.  With a conference of trustee associations for the four  western provinces proposed another special committee consisting of Arthur Turner, Ross-  land; P.M. Hopkins, Kitimat;  and president L.W. Wood was  named to bring in a report on  B.C. participation.  The executmve reaffirmed  BCSTA endorsation of a provincial salary scale with zonal  adjustments to be included as  an integral part of the salary  jgrant   calculation  formula.  All school boards in B.C.  will be asked to express their  opinion on hiring British teachers for B.C. schools. The information gained will be submitted to the Department of  Education.  roads, slow down by pumping  the brakes, releasing them  each time the car definitely  loses speed. Light pumping  maintains friction between the  tires and the road and helps  the driver keep control of the  car.  2. On sharp curves, brake  before going into the turn and  accelerate on it. If the car  goes into a-skid DON'T STEP  ON THE BRAKE, but steer in  the dircetion of the skid and  accelerate slightly.  3. Coming down a mountain  or a steep hill, contdol the  speed by intermittent braking.  Do not keep the foot on the  brake all the way down or  the brake linings may burn  out and destroy all braking  power. Using the on-off braking, the driver, if still travelling too fast for safety, should  shift into a lower gear to slow  the car.  4. For the safest driving,  brakes should be checked frequently. '"���"������  ' 5. Avoid sudden stops. No  matter how good car brakes, it,  still takes about three-quarters  of a second for the driver to  get his foot on the brake pedal, after seeing the danger. In .  this time the car, at thirty  miles an hour, will travel  thirty-three feet before ' the  driver can apply the brakes.  Leave an adequete margin of  safety between moving cars.  The BCAA reminds all motorists that the besit drivers  use their brakes  sparingly.  /our  wrrifig  is it overloaded?  Seven out of ten Canadian  homes have weak or dangerous wirirlg, according to a survey, just completed by the  magazine Electrical . Contractor of Canada,  This weak wiring is the  cause of many fires which  have resulted in heavy loss of  life, the magazine reports:  (Elctrical' fires in 1954 cost  Canada $10.3 millions, the  largest known fire loss from  any single cause.) In addition  the wiring systems in many  homes are now so overloaded  that many labor-saving appliances cannot be .used.  Reporting on the results of  the survey Electrical Contacr-  tor estimates that to clean up  the wiring mess could cost  the country a billion dollars.  trine rreserVere  The Forest Industries recently took a look into 1975  to visualize the sales picture  20 years from now. Forestry  researchers and equipment  people are also looking to  the future to envision ways of  imprcvin'g. and harvesting the  crop. The following ideas in a  new film appear to have a  modern Jules Verne approach.  Some have already been test  ed.  The film shows foresters of  the future injecting live, growing trees with harmones, radioactive materials and other  stimulating substances t0 preseason the wood and- create  fire-resitant qualities. Other  chemicals were injected to  stain the wood in desired colors while the tree is still growing. ,  Logger-type helicopters in  the picture swoop down to  lift trees from deep canyons  and steep mountain sides -  areas where timber is now  inaccessible.  In 'tomorrow's sawmill, as  portrayed by film,' the sawyer  will have a mammoth TV  screen showing him the log  as it arrives in the outside  cutting room - and an. X-ray  picture of tlie grain of the  log will guide him' as he positions it for the best separation.  Logs are shown being sliced  by an invisable cutting ray  - leaving the boards smooth,  edged and planed - and produced  without   sawdust.

EDITOR: I am interested, in  a letter appearing in your  issue of December 8th by the  Secretary of the Beach property Owners Association. It is  a classic example of how mis--  leading can be a careful compilation of half-truths and innuendo. ^  She mentions that D.L. 685  was "absorbed  into    the    village without  benefit   of pleb-  escite". Prior to March,  1945,  as >a  culmination  of   negotiations  and   discussions,   a  petition was circulated and largely    signed    among    residents  and  taxpayers  of    D.L.    685,  praying that the  aea   be    incorporated into the village. As  a property owner iri D.L. 685 I  signed    that    petition.    There  had been some opposition, so  far as I know no counter petition, but   at least   one letter  to the department.     ��� V  Following established    legal  procedure the department submitted   .the application; to the :  board   of  Commissioners     for;'  their approval    or    otherwise.  No    "plebecitev ;; wa.s    taken, y  probably because V. the:��������� Lieu-'  tenant-Governor     in    Council; V  acting on davice of his inspectors,   who  had   personally  examined  the situation,  did riot  deem it required, and no formal  request for  such a  plebiscite,   accompanied    with     a  deposit to 'cover the estimated  costs, had been made.  In March,    1945,    the.  matter came before the board and V  the    decision    was     recorded  .that  while the  proposal    was  approved  in   principal,   actual  final   approval    was    witheld  .pending the   adoption  of provincial  legislation. that' would  permit the adjustment of certain   glaring   and   obvious   inequities ;:���. that    would    impose  an undue burden  on the taxpayers of the then village, to  .whom the board was firstly res-  pbrisible.   These: ' qualifications  " had the effect of holding    up  any move to incorporation.  It is interesting to note that  the   Commissioner  who   authored the resolution,    and    especially the blocking . qualifications, was a  man  who  also  owned   property   in  D.L.  685,  had signed the    petition,    believed  the   proposal  was  gen-  erly  benificial   both  to    himself and the area, but was able  ,to. place his duty as a public  official   before .  his    personal  desires.   Such    self-abnegation  may be  inexplicable    to    the  secretary of the Property Owners Assn.    but it occurs, very  often among men and women  in   public  service.  The ratepayers in D.L. 685,  faced with almost unbearable  difficulties, continued to press  . the department for action; to*-  wards amalgamation. That department repeatedly asked the .  board t0 withdraw the blocking qualifications, but the successive boards refused, as it  was felt to be not in the interests of., their, own ratepayers.  Finally,; about 1949, provincial legislation was enacted  that would enable the most  flagrant7 inequities to be adjusted. In reply to a letter  from the department)the Board  conceded that their most def-  finite objections were now  overcome, that some measures  of disapproval, .'still existed,,  but these being minor it might  possibly be in the best interest of all concerned to permit  the amalgamation to go foi--  ward. Actually no board ever  did firmly -consent t0 the amalgamation, and' certainly no  board ever asked, for itV However, the department was���; probably justified in taking consent for granted in view of no  definite objection being continued. ���  In  the year following     the  amalgamation   the .number  of  commissioners   was ��� increased':'  from   three tQ  five.   This had  nothing  to  do  with-  the    increased area, but was in com-  pliancei with    amendments    to  the     Village     Municipolities   ���  Act, which affected every village   in   the   province.   Abcut  the same  time the clerk's sal  ary was  increased  by    about  60%; the land    area    of   the  land area of the village    had  been  increased by 400%.  the  assessment, by about 85%; presumably there would be more  work to be done. It has    fre-'  quently     been     accepted     as  scund     principle    that    more  work deserves -more pay;  but  perhaps this is another Qf those  old,  fallacious   ideas that    no  longer   find merit    with    the  hew economic    and    spiritual  revelation    now    provincially  current..       -  The   secretary  to  the property    Owners 'Assn.    states  amounts paid  by the  loggers,  .presumably to government and  village I. think it very doubtful if the figures    given    are  .even nearly correct, but very  likely are not as far in error  as some given by her star witness . at the recent hearing at  the School  Hall. However,  it  seems to be true that the loggers   have  been   paying   some  amount  in  respect   to  tenure  of  public lands.. That    is    at  least some gain over the position in respect to residents of  the Bay area,  who  I believe  to be members of the named r  association, and including  the  secretary of that organization,  who haye been and are occupy1-,  ing public lands  without permit, without application,    and'  without any payment what-so-  ever cf ground rent    or    land  taxes.  The  secretary mentions  the  thick file of correspondence in  . Victoria  relative  to   the   annual renewal to    the    Loggers  Land-use     permit.     Probably  quite  true, and also  probably  true  that jnuch of this file  is  by  the same author.    On the  other hand, -at recent hearing  at   the  School Hall,  representations were  heard  from  delegates from .at least three local organizations favoring the  renewal of that permit. These  organizations comprise a very  important cross-section   of the  people    of    this     community.  Among    their    members    are  people who  have' done much  of the work  of building    the  community, and in many cases  have  very    important    stakes  here,  in  homes  and  business.  Also, as I  can testify, among  their members are many men  and women who have done a  great  deal  of    self-sacrificing  work on plans and-projects directed to improving community  life,  tend : the . betterment 7 ��� of.  community  living    conditions.  I do not think this    can    be  claimed for the aforesaid secretary,   nor  for ..any    of    the  members of her    Association.  I cannot    agree    with    the  view  expressed  that   the   Village  Commission    should    re- .  main     "neutral",     though     it  does seem that so far the board  has done  just that.  Any matter affecting the livelihood ,or  living conditions of the people  of    the    village,   -particularly  when tenure or iu-e of oublic ..  lands is concerned,  should be .  a matter of concern to a bodv  Coast News Dec. 22   1955      9  elected by the people of   the  village to look after their interests;   a body responsible to  : those    people,    with    powers  clearly specified by    acts    of  legislature,     and    subject    to  supervision by trained and experienced    Government     officials.
