Drugstores PO hours  ownership  is changed  ��� x  mmminmimmmimmmmmimim  Ben Lang of Lang's Drug  Stores, Sechelt and Gibsons, announces that'Rae Kruse and associates have purchased the two  stores. The new company will  be known as the Kruse Drug  Stores Limited and will operate  under that name.    ,  Mr. Lang will remain as a director of the new company which  has plans -for .expansion and development in keeping with the  growth of '" the Sunshine Coast  area.  H. L. "Micky" McArthur was  Ben Lang's first customer in his  original Gibsons' store and was  also the first customer to have  a prescription dispensed under  the new prescription label.  Len Barkley will manage the  Sechelt store and Rae* Kruse the  Gibsons store and both stores,  Mr. Kruse announces, will continue to provide the best of pharmaceutical services.  Mr. Lang, known to most people as Ben, pioneered in pharmacy when he opened his first store  on Nov. 15, 1945 in what is now  the Dutch Boy in Gibsons. The  premises, a general store, were  purchased from F. J. Wyngaert.  Following the Christmas business of 1945 there were some  tough months but when summer  rolled around the situation brightened. Fresh 'eggs were very  popular at tho Lang store and  because Mr. Wyngaert's eggs  were in such demand Ben handled many-hundred dozen for him.  There were ��� periods when Ben  checked the till and if, there was  $10 in it things were not going  too badly for that'day.     " __  _"  In 1947 Ben was approached  by James Parker of Sechelt regarding a shopping centre,at Sechelt. Space had-been allocate  i or' *a. 'difug-^store'^o^Ben^LaB^  opened his second store.  Ben's father, the late" W. H.J  Lang purchased- property in  Granthams area in 1910 and every summer the family spent two  months camping. Ben recalls  those days by referring to, the  walk |rom Granthams to the  bright lights of Gibsons shed by  the Drummond store windows  which were lit by the aid of a  small Delco plant, the only electric power available then.  Growth of the area is hard to  imagine but Ben can record one  note of interest. What is now the  B.C;? Ferry Service started- with  one Turner 32 foot craft running  between Gibsons and Fisherman's  Cove in 1945. When George Firth  was repairing the engines on this  sea bus during cold.winter nights--,  Ben would go down to the craft  ��� withYa big thermos;flask of coffee; He and George wouid sit and  enjoy it. This sea bus carried;  only 20 passengers, a far ..cry  from what we have 16 years'later?

Bert and Margaret Tidball  ROBERTS CREEK  Trees have been used as a  symbol for rejoicing for over  three thousand years. . .here are  some surprising facts about the  Christmas Tree and its forerunners.  The Christmas Tree, to millions  of children in Western Europe  and America, is the symbol of  . rejoicing. No other altar of youth  commands such instinctive or  loving adoration. y- '  i 5j* 5jC 3{C  But the Christmas Tree has not  _ always  enjoyed  its   sentimental  ' dominion over the hearts of Christian nations:.' Other   peoples,   in  antiquity,    owed    allegiance    to,  trees,   but   they  lived  in  lands'  where  the  spruce and  hemlock  were   unknown.   The   Egyptians  held   mammoth   celebrations  in  'the "month corresponding to our  December, but they centred their  devotions   upon  the   palm? 'The  pahris of Egypt gave birth to' a  by the legions of Drusus in his  campaign against the Germans,  about 15 B.C.

The restless writings of Dickens and of Washington Irving in America, revived  the ancient practices and there  seems today no threatening sign  that the fine old custom of the  Christmas Tree "will ever be- taken from-us, either by tyrannical  mandate or by the slothfulness of  our imagination.  Before you take hatchet in  hand and go out to collect yout  own Christmas tree, a word of  warning is in order. It is strictly  illegal to cut Christmas trees on  Crown land anywhere in British  Columbia. If you are cutting on  private land, be sure to get the  owner's permission.  Commercial Christmas tree  growers ..manage" their   lots   as  with its twelve leaves suggested  the completed year. - Maybe,^the,  palm was the forerunner ofs the  Christmas Tree as we in Canada  know it:  *      *     *  Three thousand years later, the  Romans, celebrating their Saturnalia, raised aloft a conifer as  the sign of their joy over the  winter solfetice. Thousands of  such trees, garlanded with vivid  decorations, set loose a flood of  riotous rejoicing. But Santa Claus  was not of the Roman era, and  the children of that great empire  knew nothing of the glorious old  fellow, who, with all his ponderous girth, can suspend theNIaws  of gravity,Yarid every other natural law, crawl through tortuous chimneys, lay his own tracks  across the clouds, and make personal visitations in a single night  to perhaps a hundred million children, every one of whom he cleverly identifies by name.

This' is the theory. It is not  generally the practice. The vocal  politician on the hustings becomes too often, when he arrives  in Ottawa, merely another repeater of the party line; a man  who speaks up, if he speaks up at  all, only in party caucus,- and  never to embarrass the party.  It is therefore refreshing to  . have a backbencher stand up in  public and tell his party some  home truths, as Mr. Steven Otto,  Liberal member- for York East,  did recently..  One may not agree "with some  of the proposals which Mr. Otto  put forward. But his criticism of  party politics in this country was  right enough. He charged the Liberal party with failing to be a  liberal party; also with refusing  to take a firm stand on certain  critical issues because the public might be. opposed to it.  - Most of us are inclined to extend these charges to cover the  other major party, the Conservatives. The electorate said as  much in the June 18. election.  Then vno..party offered sufficient  leadership to merit a?majority in  the House of Commons.     - ?  Of all the political-parties vying ,for the .electorate's favor,  only the New. Democratic Party  offers a program based on a  clear political philosophy, y the  philosophy of socialism; and.the  majority of; Canadians; do, .not.  want to vote, for socialism. The  two major parties, meanwhile,  appear to have confused and frus:  trated ;��� the  electorate   by   swap-  Heads campaign  Hon. L. B. Pearson, leaderyof  the Liberal party of Canada has  re-appointed Hugh Martin y'as?  chairman and John D. Taggart  as co-chairman of the federal  campaign committee in British  Columbia. They will be responsible for the broad direction of .the  federal . election -campaign , iri  British Columbia.Their'duties^i^-  clud��*o:*%art&^^  search^, assistance in candidate  .selection and liaison with Ottawa  ?and'_ the. ridings.?, .'/.

They  no longer advocate conservatism  or liberalism but a,patchwork of  promises born of what -they" think  will please the voters.  Curiously enough, as June 13  demonstrated, these promises do  not please'the voters. Canadians  want, to know where they are'going more than they 'want hand  ���outs. They can know where they  ^are going only if their political  leaders have the courage to map  the road; however thorny,- that  must be travelled to reach their  destination ... . that of a free and  prosperous Canada.  ernment to study the possibility  of Canada changing to the metric  system of. weights and measures.  This follows a similar move by  the .Canadian Conference on Education. .The minister of trade  and.commerce has indicated that  no fqrmal study is underway but  that developments in the United  Kingdom and United States are  being watched. As the bulk of  our external trade is with th^se  two countries their actions will  have considerable weight.  Coast News, Dec. 20, 1962.

Undoubtedly.^ many factors are involved arid the cycle  seems'to vary from seven to 12  years. Generally speaking rab-  z-bits fall into three groups, the  cotton tail, the snowshoe and  the jack rabbit. The cotton tail  and his" cousins the swamp and  brush rabbit are true rabbits.  The snowshoe and jack rabbit,  on the other hand, belong to the  family of hares.  Don't   gamble   in traffic.  The  cars riiay be stacked against you  iSeehcit  Beauty Salon  ?

Very soon Mr. New Owner  came along and was delighted to  have Cindy. He already owned a  collie who was getting along in  years and was happy to find that  his elder tenant didn't object to  the pup. All settled down happily  and everything,went well for two  years. Then came -trouble: Cindy  grew.into a full-blown lady with  fully-developed ���appetites ��� all  appetites be it noted ��� and there  you had two frustrated ladies  constantly getting on each others  nerves until it developed into constant fightings an(j it was decided  by Mr. N.O. that they would have  to be separated. -   . y  So back went Cindy with tears  and regrets to Fairy Godmother.  Again a good home was found  ��� then another and another until in all seven homes had been  tried and from each of which  Cindy was returned just hot suitable ��� unable to settle down it  seemed. F.G. conscious that all  that unsettlementwas doing a  great deal of harm, put an ad in  the paper stating the case fully  and appealing for a final and understanding home. :;Y  Hardly was the newspaper issued than a knock came to her  door and there stood Mr. N.O.  again.

The Church  will be---what the men of - the  Church make it."  The case of the "Census Anglicans" has also perplexed clergymen throughout the province.  Rev. William Hillary of Str Mich  ael's Church, Vancouver, and editor of the 'Anglican News said:  "This deliberate assumption of  membership on the part of so  many who seldom, if ever, take  occasion to make it known is  somewhat of a * mystery.  "The old 'C. of E.* status in  the armed forces did have some  virtue in that the chaplain knew  the soldier in his regiment could  not hide himself.

Some unusual and beautiful effects can be achieved by choosing the right color for your  Christmas tree, together with colored lights selected to complement your room decor.  For instance, your living room  has blue walls, furniture and rug  in blues, greens and white, you  might like to try a white Christmas tree, decorated with turquoise aid green Lighted Ice  lights. Lighted Ice lights resem-'  ble a large globe with chips of  "ice" all over it. When lit, they  create a soft, wintry look that is  quite  unusual.  In addition, you can also use  the new white string and sockets  ���t available this year for the first  tirpe. They blend in beautifully  with a spray painted tree and en-.  hance the effect of your colored  lights. *���  For a living room with white  walls, furniture and rug in burnt  orange and beiges, and dark  woodwork, a gold-painted tree  can look, elegant, especially when  decorated with red Sparkle lights./  These are a rich magenta arid  they really do sparkle. For the.  traditional living room with green  walls, chintz-covered furniture,  and dark woodwork,- there is  nothing to equal the natural  green tree with a mixture of Glow  lights of various colors. Y  A   gold   tree   decorated   wijth  gold and white Lighted Ice lights  blends in with the more f���rmal;  living room with beige ���walls and''  neutral furnishings.  Mixed Snowball lights on a  pink tree lends.: itself to the festive air if your living room color  combination  is  mushroom   walls  mixed with greens, pinks and  . browns. Snowball lights come in  'Six beautiful pastel shades when  lit. When turned off, they instantly become white as snowballs  ��� a lovely decorative light when  not burning.  A word about spray-painted  trees: use them carefully for  they can be; a very strong feature in a room. They are sophisticated and suit the larger living  ",xoom or a hallway. In addition  they are lovely as a small tree,  particularly    in     an    apartment  , -yiure they stand out without be-  'co.ivlng tco dominant. Spray-  painted trees are available in  various colors, but white, gold  and silver are colors that should  be used carefully.  X Simplicity   and  originality are  .c/goals that/ should be kept in mind  Yin   your    Christmas   decorating  -'plan.     Also    your     decorations  yshould be related to the surroundings and to the spirit of the sea-  '?'son. For instance, in a room that  'has modern furniture and design,  ^your C h r i s t m a s  decorations  should   be   simple,   emphasizing  ���line and form.  Y Remember too, the proper use  - of color in; your. Christmas decorating scheme is very important  The traditional Christmas colors  .are -red.-and?green, but other colors can be used ? effectively to  supplement them and to give  bright accents or interesting contrasts. �����.  Above all, though, have lots  of fun decorating this. year. It's  a wonderful chance to try your  ingenuity and creative  ability!

To focus attention  on the creche light is used-; behind the figures as -well as. illumination from a* floodlight  placed on the lawn,  a breath of Christmas itself and  r-ak"s, a handsome addition to  the decoration of the door. The  whole effect can be highlighted  by a floodlight placed in a swivel-  type holder overhead and pointed so that the deep green of the  wreath and the red of the ribbon are emphasized in a soft  white light.  ���: If your doorway is graced on  either side by two evergreen  trees, .frame the door with evergreen roping. Place two lighted  bells, tied together with a bright  red   or green  ribbon   over ?the  ddor so that they direct light on  the" doorway. Decorate the , evergreen trees and the roping with  strings of glow lights and metal  foil ornaments. Then place two  floodlights at each side of the  doorway, so that the light sparkles on the ornaments and gives,  general illumination to your entire decorating scheme.  Tall glowing candles are a  lovely addition to any doorr/ay  as a ryinbol of the Christmas  spirit. These candles can be  made from sections of pipe,  plastic or mailing tubes. :Place  an outdoor, string inside the tube  so that a red sparkle light can  be used for the flame.  Interesting effects can be created if you. have a stairway tp  your, porch. Buy a rope of greenery and wire it along the rail%  ings. Entwine colored glow lights.  Decorate your doorway with  styrofoam balls and stars wired  to an 8-inch strip of chicken wire  and tack to the frame. If. you  have  a porch roof,  glow lights*  may be' strung in a corkscrew  fashion about the pillars. Try  using -a variety of colors, but if  you prefer a dramatic effect,  use one color of-lights only.  ., Another   interesting, .composi  tion of evergreen and lights can  be created by framing your doorway with' evergreen boughs entwined with colored Christmas  lights. Place a creche of silhouetted  figures ;aoove the door.  Santa Sends  OUR BEST  HOLIDAY  WISHES  TO Y0O!
