Plans are now in progress,  for obtaining a Chris'tmas tree  with Fred Inglis volunteering,  for this job and Gibsons firemen taking over _ the placing  and the decoration. Street lighting will also become effective  as soon as the connections and  Strings of lights can be put'  . into  operation.  This was decided as a meet^  ing of Gibsons merchants  Thursday evening in Jerry'  Dixon's Barber shop 7 where  they gathered to discuss what  could be done for brightening  up the area during the festive  season.  Merchants generally report  they have the finest stocks they  have ever obtained , for this  year's Christmas business and  many new type toys will be on  sale to please the young. Arrangements are being made  for weekly prizes to be given  lucky individuals who have the  correct numbers.  Merchants have re-opened  their Christmas fund and will  be collecting funds from anybody who desires to contribute  towards the brightening up of  the area. Tlhose desjring to  contribute can make a cheque  to the Gibsons Christmas Lighting Fund and leave it with  Jerry Dixon at the, barber shop.  Merchants will be canvassed  by a member of the business  section.  Carol singing is now being  organized and it is expected  quite a. few church organizations will take part. In the  meantime more details are being prepared to be announced  as  they   become   available.

He  came to Canada originally to  lecture at the national coaches  clinics at Guelph;. Ontario, and  was persuaded to come to B.C.  as head coach for. track and  field at the university of British  Columbia. Among other duties  assumed since his arrival is the  position of director of the B.C.  Legion Sports Training program  On display at the meeting will  be personal awards won by club  members.

The Coast Comets are now  nearing   the   end   of   the  first  kenzie,: both 14 and- members:of  the Coast- Comets Track Club  competed in the Canadian National Cross Country Championships atr Brockton Point,  Nov.  27.       :-     ���  Out of a field of 73 of. the top  distance runners in . Canada in  their age group they placed 35th  and 38th respectively.  Both boys' were competing in  big time competition for the  first time and their performance in the 2V4 mile race is  considered exceptionally good:  This cross , country meet had  competitors in all. age groups,  from as far east as Ontario and.  Quebec, also a number of entrants from the U.S.  Golden age of youth  @W <��md@��Mfi?�� SBM&  Friendship which can bridge  years has been proven a reality  by Patty Gust. As a member of  the Roberts Creek Guide company she chose friendship with  a senior member of the community as her service qualification for her Gold Cord.  Patty's Gold Cord was presented by the Division Commissioner Mrs. A. Labonte at the  Roberts Creek fly-up on Saturday and the proudest and most  delighted member of the audience was Mrs. D. E. Arnold of  Gibsons whom Patty has visited  regularly over a period of  months. It is plain to see that  this service has created a  friendship which will continue  to grow.  Mrs. Arnold finds it difficult  to put into words all that this  has meant to her, but she values highly the contact with a  young person just starting out  in life. Patty is the fourth member of the Roberts Creek company to achieve the distinction  of a Gold Cord, Guiding's highest award. She is however the  first to choose to help a senior  citizen for her service project,  and she is enthusiastic about  the wonderful friendship it has  brought her. Perhaps Mrs. Arnold and Patty have paved the  way for others to follow, as service and friendship are the cornerstones of Guiding.  A huge cake presented to Patty by the Guide company was  shared by the guests to celebrate the occasion. \y:y%yU.   x^UkIW^  Coast News, Dec. 2, 1965.  i The Unseen Audience  A WEBSTER CLASSIC  7 r- ���r  WALTER, Do V&u ��iM_>      L  ,pr j -rORAJ  OAJ TH<_f  RADIO   J  To. eer so/"i<_. /v_ews'  W7  y  ^^kpy��S!^  (Eoast Keuis  PHONE 886-2622  Published every Thursday at Gibsons, B.C.

Unify iii the Community gets things done  Compfbfriise with necessity  There are; some, ratepayers, who are not satisfied with the present school board setup and judging from comments made by them  intend to express their dissatisfaction'by voting against the com-  ing school referendum.'  It is not the intention'of this editorial to go.into the subject of  the referendum but rather to point out to these ratepayers that  requirements forischoojL children of ..this, year and the immediate  years to come are of more importance than their opinion of the  school board,  '      / ��� .     :  The place to register; disapproval of th.ejboard.is in the election  of trustees which is a separate matter entirely and should not be  carried over into' the problem surrounding the referendum.  in other words these ratepayers will have to compomise with  necessity. Defeating the referendum will achieve nothing, except  to reveal what some of the public may think of the board itself.  In the event the referendum dqes not pass the school board for next  year will immediately have to set to and prepare another referendum. It would be another matter altogether if the public general-;  ly were critical of the contents of the referendum. From what one  can gather the referendum does not appear to be the culprit. On  this basis it would appear that the advice to compromise with  necessity has something in its favor.  �� It costs money and time to prepare a referendum, usually  months to get it ready and when it is ready ratepayer taxes have  to be spent to inform the public what it is about. Just how strong  the opposition will be is not easy to assess. However at points in  the school district there are segments of population who should  give close consideration to how they will cast their ballot.  In nine years, from 1957 to 1965, for example, grade 12 at Elphinstone school has increased 250 percent, from 20 pupils to 78.  There are plenty more pupils close on the heels of. grade 12 at Elphinstone and other schools as well. Are these youngsters to be  made the whipping boy for those ratepayers wh.o have an opinion  to express? One can only hope this will not be the case.  Clarification would help  The name of a political party known as Social Credit has  always appeared to this publication to be a mistake because there  is no Social Credit in existence today anywhere.  There are four divisions calling themselves Social Credit,  Alberta where it was born, British Columbia where it is an ex- ,  pediency, nationally as the Social Credit party under Robert  Thompson, M.P. and the Caouette Social Credististes of Quebec.  None of them subscribe to the Alberta. theory of Social Credit  and it is probable that none of them ever will.  Perhaps the Social Credit Women's auxiliaries in convention the other day at Edmonton have the right idea'in asking  that the Social Credit name be revised because is meaning is  not clearly understood. Each one of the Social Credit parties  today is a long, long way from the Alberta-Major Douglas Social  Credit. .  The Douglas theory which Aberhart supported sought control  of the monetary system, with social credit in the form of a national dividend to every person, and the establishment of a just  price for all goods. Political arguments could be presented in  an effort to prove that Social Credit parties have endeavoured  to do all this but they would not stand close scrutiny.  A political party should have a name it. can substantiate.  All other parties have clear cut names which cannot be categorized as pure labels. Social Credit as a political fact today is  just a label. This paper supports the women's auxiliaries in asking that a name which can be clearly understood be given to  what is now known as the Social Credit party.  A unique restaurant  The -most unique- restaurant  in North America is located in  that little jut of scenic magnificence'which,- though part of  British Columbia, is wedged in  between Alaska and th^ ��� Yukon.  It is located at Bennett, BiC.  and scores 100% in. feeding  each and every traveler who  passes through.  Patrons may eat as much  as they wish from tables laden  with the best of food, and may  stay as long as they wish, up  to 30 minutes. - There is no  competition and management  will not accept payment. The  highly efficient and > pleasant  staff directs each; patron to a  table, replenishes serving  dishes as required and,, urges  him to eat heartily. The customers all arrive at the. same  time, and even when there are  several hundred, the conversation among them is minimal.  Why? Because they : are stunned! Stunned by an array of  old time dishes superbly cooked and served. Stunned because  there is no juke box: Stunned  because there is no panting  waitress standing with pencil  poised to write down his order.  Stunned because there is no  relay race with dirty : dishes  to a crockery smasher who  lurks in the kitchen hating his  job as a dish-washer. Stunned  because   the  magnificent  roast  of sirloin of. beef looks and  smells and tastes exactly like  a magnificent roast of sirloin  of beef, and is sliced by a well  adjusted, warm hearted person  with a he-man carving knife ���  not a razor blade.  . There are no chits to add  up, no change to make, no line  up at the cash register ��� and,  . no cash register.  A Mississippi school teacher  recently wrote to the Department of Travel and Publicity  at 'Whitehorse,   demanding   to  . know '.'how to get to that free  restaurant where the food is  so good." She wasn't interest-  in the Klondike, the Trail of  '98 or the Yukon River; just  the free restaurant.  And a California tourist, enthralled equally by the meal  and the thrilling ride up over  the White Pass of '98 fame,  was heard to remark: "Well, I  never! I knew Premier Bennett  was a good, businessman, and  that he owned a string of hard-'  ware stores, but I didn't know  he. was in the food business!  Giving it away, at that! No  wonder they named the place  after  him!"  But management There has. a  tremendous advantage '" over  restaurant operators elsewhere.  They know well in advance how  many guests will come/and the  exact moment to expect them.  message  "How much more" says  Jesus, "shall your" Heavenly  Father give good things to them  ask Him." The much more is  ��� the greater degree God Wants  to give in comparison with  what good parents give to their  children. Our parents give us  the necessities of life, food and  clothing, but they do not stop  there. ���"'���.'   .  Good parents want if at all  possible to givethe much more,  the extras; the music lessons,  ���the university "education. The  only bar to.this willingness of  parents to give, may be their  limited financial resources, or  because the. member of the  family refuses to accept, this  extra, and that can be a real  disappointment to  the parents.  God gives many things to  us His family which we naturally  accept  and     use      without  thinking, but He always has  the much more which He wants  to give and His supply and resources are never limited.  Again as with good parents,  the only bar to His giving of  good things, is the refusal on  our part to ask or accept.  God gave His much more  whert' He gave His Son in response to our need, and where-  ever this gift has becoirie a  part of life, a new freedom has  been found. St:. Paul, found this  in Jus-life when hje said, .'Where  sin abounded, God's grace did.  much more "abound. Many found  this extra in a compassionate  love. So God, still out of His  boundless storehouse .wants to  give His'all good things, the  extras. They are there-for, our  asking and receiving.���Miss H.  E.

Annually over three million young  people enrol for abacus instruction but about, 25 percent of  these pass the rigid examinations. Those that pass are graded on their ; proficiency and  these grades are important to  prospective employers.  Most. Japanese abacus are  wooden and. consist of a. frame  supporting two bars containing  diamond shaped beads. The  upper bar contains a single  bead while the lower bars has  either four or five.  The abacus was first introduced to Japan from China during the 16th century and became relatively popular in the  17th century when Japan began to develop into a commercial nation. But the abacus has  not been limited to the Orient,  a form of abacus was used by  the Egyptians, Greek, Romans  and several Eurbpean nations  during the middle ages.

Owner can  phone 886-2818 after 5 p.m.  The annual meeting of Gib  sons Hospital auxiliary was held  in the Health Centre on Nov. 18.  The treasurer's report showed  the auxiliary had made approximately $1,500 during the period  September 1, 1964 to November  1, 1965. This amount was realized from the Valentine Smorgasbord, Fashion show; bingo  coffee, gift box sales and Hallowe'en tea.  Of this money, the auxiliary  has turned $1,415.08 over to St.  Mary's Hospital. A room was  furnished for $800, $600 has recently gone towards the purchase of art electro-cardiograph  machine and Christmas lights  have been purchased with the  balance. Without the public's  support of auxiliary functions  and the willing hands of auxiliary members, these donations  to the hospital would not have  been possible.  ..  Patients at St. Mary's will be  receiving Christmas favors on  their trays, a combined auxiliary effort, and Gibsons auxiliary will be purchasing a sterling silver baby spoon for presentation to the first New Year's  baby.  Mrs. G. Madsen gave a good  report on the recent Hospital  Auxiliaries convention. held in  Vancouver. The subjects of medicare and the. cost of drugs  were discussed quite fully. ,  The next auxiliary meeting  will be held on Feb. 10. Any  special meetings prior to that  date will be announced in the  Coast News.  AN 1860 SAWMILL  A large sawmill was established at the head of Alberni  Canal in 1860 and a farm was  created to supply the needs of  the workers. From this grew  the twin communities of Alberni and Port Alberni.  On Nov. 19 Pender Harbour  High . celebrated its annual  Sadie Hawkins Day. Teachers  and students alike came dressed representing Dogpatch  characters. During the noon-  hour a successful dance was  held and costumes judged. Winners were Plazel Wray as best  dressed girl and Bud Klein as  the best dressed boy.  The weekend of Nov. 27 was  the beginning of a new trend  for the Future Nurses club.  Four senior girls: Wendy Godkin, Marilyn Gardiner, Brenda  Lee and Georgina Ibey were  at St. Mary's Hospital working  as Candy Stripers.  At present the basketball  teams are being organized and  practicing for future games.  Members of the  Chess  Club  under  the  sponsorship   of  Mr.  Ward are holding a tournament  this month in which the cham-  retary   -   treasurer   y   Marian  pions to date are Leonard  Graves, Martin Donley and Mr.  Ward.

Picked up  in passing  When ' anti-tuberculosis "work  was started in India and the  first Tuberculosis Christmas  Seals were sold to help finance  it, a slogan used in connection  with the seals was "For the prevention and cure of tuberculosis."     . .  One of the results, as reported  in a letter from a personal  friend, the wife of a missionary  in India, is this note of complaint received by those in  charge of the work: "Your seals  are no good. I applied to front  of chest and to back but got no  relief. I still have the fever and  still have the pain. Please advise what I shall do next."  LAST WEEK'S X-WORD  PUZZLE ANSWERS  While quill pens were still in  vogue, British Columbia had  its own Ball Point, on Hardy  Island, Jervis Inlet. It was  named in about 1860 afterv  Rear-Admiral Sir Alexander  John Ball of HMS Alexander,  who served in the Battle of  The Nile.  Public affairs apathy is in the  news again. The annual ratepay-  _ ers'   meetings  always  bring   a  rash of this disease. This year  it is even more startling since  we  have  just  been through  a  federal election. And it is only  natural for people to have more  of a direct interest in such home  town  politics   as  school  board ���  than  in the  broad,  vague  and  phony election just past. Thus, if  phony election jut past. Thus, if  the local meetings are any indication   of   public   interest,   we  should all make a fervent wish  that  the  country does  not fall  into the hands of a dictator.  For example, at one meeting,  there were 38 persons eligible  to vote. What happened? Six appeared at the meeting, including  the incumbent trustee. Another  representative was elected. All  that was needed to elect a representative was three votets.  This represents seven percent  of the eligible electorate; hardly rep by pop! ��� North Thomp- .  son Times  Hon. L. R. Peterson Q.C., minister of labor, announces that  the Board of Industrial Relations has issued a special hours  of work regulation for Christmas.  Under the regulation persons  employed in retail establishments may work two hours in  excess of the daily limit provided in Section 3 of the Hours of  Work act, on any two days during the two-week period ending  Dec. 25, 1965.  Minimum wage regulations require that time and one-half of  the employee's regular rate of  pay shall be paid for all hours  worked in excess of 8 in the day  and 40 in the week.  Sir Charles Maclean, Bart.,  Chief Scout of the United Kingdom and the British Commonwealth is to visit Canada in 1967.

To be born into a world where  such major conflicts do not exist is something for which we  should be most thanKful, but in  our thanksgiving, never let us  forget those who paid the Supreme sacrifice^ or those who  still carry the deep scars of bat-;  ���tie, for what we have today is  part of the price they have paid.  There .are a great many families who are without the full  support they need, simply because their loved ones paid this  supreme sacrifice, and we  should see to it that we are reminded of the debt we owe.  It is somewhat disturbing to  find, that in this day and age,  there are. those who are fully  convinced that such monies as  are collected by this annual appeal, are used; to furtherthe entertainment of those who belong  to the Royal Canadian Legion.  We are most anxious to make  known that all money collected  by this appeal is used strictly  for the purpose intended. Furthermore -,'��� there are many records to show that money collected outside this annual appeal is  distributed to the welfare of  those who are in need. These,  who receive such help, are in  need because, as we have said,  their loved ones paid the supreme sacrifice in order that  you and I may still enjoy the  blessings of this land, and that  we shall'have the right and freedom of worship, speech, and all  things which are considered to  be human rights.  ���E.

Chairman  Horvath   explained,  the board would have preferred''^  to  have  another  school  somewhere  in  the Gibsons  elementary  area but the board was  unable to find a density of population     which    could     require,  school  construction.     It     was  most difficult to predict on this  basis.   Growth in   the   Gibsons  area   is   heavy.   Other   schools  were remaining at a fairly constant level. More land was being    purchased    for   Langdale  school.   Money  for   referendas  was borrowed  as   required.   It  is   not  necessary  now to  take  up     the    entire     referendum  amount as it was in. the.! past.'  A  secondary  school for  Se  chelt is not an immediate pros-  "pect. It was pointed out that  Elphinstone Secondary school  would have to reach a 750" to  900 pupil level before another  site would have to be. sought..  It required a specific number  of pupils before the "secondary  program could become effective and necessary before such  a school could be considered.  Reason for the curtailment,  of the board's proposed office  building which was cut from  $90,000 to $37,000 was because  Victoria officials were of the  opinion that if Salmon Arm  could build a school board office for $37,000, Gibsons could  do the same.  Councillor Drummond suggest  ed that the board work towards.  / obtaining lower interest rates.-  Trustees explaining their . position said that some of the last  referendum debentures had  only recently been taken up by  buyers - but "in. the meantime  they had been forced to acquire  money on loan from the bank  based on referendum require-  ments7  The site for the school bdaird  office _ was the result of a vote  by the board which considered  that .50- percent  of  the  school  . population, was in the' Gibsons  area and 60 percent in the area  including Roberts Creek. This  density of population was a  factor, in the selection of the  site, including the fact the  board already owned the property on which it would be constructed.

The new federal-provincial  rural development agreement  under the Agricultural Rehabi-  tation and Development Act,  1961, is welcomed by 0 local  MLA Tony Gargrave. The new  agreement emphasizes rural  social and economic development and the conservation of  natural resources and, provides  for a-program of alternate land  uses, soil and water conservation;- rural development and re-"  search, aimed primarily at alleviating the problem of low  income in rural areas.  Each province has now established its own ARDA office  to administer the provincial  program and to maintain liasoiv  with the federal administration.  The federal'.  government    can  spend up to $25 million a year  '   during the next five years under this program., y  Gargrave said, that the province of British Columbia has  not benefitted under ARDA and  hopes that the new arrangements will assist, some of the  people who live in the McKenzie riding.  Gargrave said; that he  thought that. ARDA could be  used to help install adequate  water systems for the Sechelt  Peninsula. There is not much  farming in the McKenzie riding but" there are many, people '  who ���live in rural ��� settings on  inadequate income who should  be helped, said Gargrave.

The village of Ripley, Ont.,  is served by a water supply  that is one of the highest in  fluorine content on the North  American   continent.  Ripley   is  situated in Bruce County, nine  miles southeast of Kincardine.  It traces its origin to the arrival in 1852 of 108 Scottish  familiies that had emigrated  from Lewis, the most northerly  island of the Outer Hebrides.  Four years later a post office  was established and given the  name  of Ripley,  after a  town  What celebrated kidnapping  occurred in 1934?  The kidnaping of the wealthy  , brewer John S. .Labatt of London, Ont., in 1934 was probably  the most celebrated case of  this kind in Canadian history.  Forced from his car on a lonely road in Lambton County on  Aug. 14, 1934, Labatt was taken  to a summer cottage in Mus-  koka and held for $150,000 ransom. Though no money was  paid, he was released three  days later in -North Toronto.  Following a complicated  series of trials, three men served penitentiary terms for their  part in the kidnapping. John S.  Labatt was the grandson of  John Kinder Labatt, who in  1832 founded the brewery that  bears the family name. Joining the family business as a  clerk in 1900; John S. became  president in 1915, following the  death of his father. He remained head of the firm until two  yeai*s before his death in 1952.  n.  Because an "average"accident  last year cost $810... a jump of $113 in just 5 years  Automobile insurance rates in most areas of Canada  will -increase in 1966. Prudent drivers ask why  premiums should rise again. Here are the key reasons:  ��� Every year the number of vehicles on Canadian  roads is increasing . . . but the total cost of accidents in the past five years has gone up three times  as fast as the number of cars which together must  provide the money to pay for these accidents.  ��� And during the past five years the number of  accidents has spiralled much faster than the number of cars that are on the road.  ��� In that same period the total cost of insurance  claims has doubled.  ��� Since 1960 this claims cost has been climbing at  an average of $40 million a year. This year's insurance bill for accidents will total $400 million.  ��� Each accident costs more than it did five years ago  .  ���the result of more expensive and luxurious cars.  increasing repair costs, higher medical expenses and  compensation for time off work or lost income.  The only way to stop this spiral is to have  fewer accidents. That is the best way, too, to  cut the tragic toll of 4,500 deaths and 150.000  injuries in Canada each year. Safety pays  it saves lives and dollars.  *Even Good Drivers Hove Accidents  Drivers with a three-year accident-free record earn a  35 per cent discount off basic insurance rates. But even  good drivers have accidents. Eighty per cent of all accidents are caused by people who have driven three or  more years without an accident. That is why the basic  rates go up for everyone���even the good driver who still  get* his discount.

Do your children find in  books exercise for their minds?  Do you appreciate the service  of the public library, not only  for yourself,, but for your children? Public libraries are not  just for city and town families  ��� many, country people visit  the library on their shopping  day trips into town or on market day! A. borrowed book is no  substitute for a child owning  his own .books. But a library  serves boys and girls in a very  special way:  Everi   before   a   child   starts  to   school   he   may   begin   his  "    "Library Adventure" by a trip  to the library     with    mother.  While   she  is     choosing     her  books he can look at a picture  book.  Gradually he     gets     to  know "The Library Lady." She  is. another friendly adult in his  small world ��� and  the more  people, he knows and likes the  easier  it  is  for  him  to  learn  to "stand on his own feet" and  not lean too much on his par- .  ents.  *     *     *  To the school age boy or girl,  a trained librarian gives direction in the choice of books. A  child discovers new and interesting volumes  which  are just  right for his age and interests.  A good librarian is a great help  in encouraging a real love for  reading.  What    a    marvellous  thing is this zest for books!  A  child who tastes  the    fun    of  reading at  an  early  age need  never, know the loneliness,  the  sense of having nothing to do,  the boredom of idleness which  .a.person with no love for books  often experiences.  .Humor is rare enough and  books with a little nonsense in  them are 'relished by the best  of men." Younger boys and  girls chuckle over the adventures of Alice in Wonderland,  Winnie the Pooh, and Babar,  the Elephant. Booth Tarking-  ton's tales of Penrod are in a  class of their own. Stephen  Leacock's "Nonsense Novels".  lend themselves to dramatization.  *     .*      *  Books of poetry appeal to the.  imagination   arid   the   sense   of  rhythih. A parent does well occasionally   to   include   such   a  book as "When We Were Very  Young" by A. A. Milne to read  aloud to, a little child.

Three other interesting di- ^  visions in reading are. books  about other lands, . books of  other days and. biography.  Travel and history are both  dealt with a a fascinating way  with beautiful illustrations in  modern children's volumes.  Booth Tarkington wrote to his  mother that he remembered  with "infinite gratefulness" her  reading aloud to him, and he  added, "You made history attractive and human to me in  .that reading."

Guest speakers at their meeting last Thursday were Miss  A. Stark, head, nurse of the  Coast ��� Garibaldi Health' unit  and Mrs. J. B. Fergusson. Miss  Stark explained the procedure  by ^vhich., the : Public Health  service in the area could be  extended to include home nursing in certain cases where  there is already somebody in  the home, or a home maker  service, available to care for  the patient between the visits  of the nurse. The cost of such  a service could be covered by  a ten cents per capita charge  on taxes.  7Mrs. J. B. Fergusson, reporting on her class of 24 students  in training as home nurses at  Sechelt, advised that they  should complete their course by  January and would then be.  eligible tp apply for certificates  from the Canadian Red Cross.  These girls, it was "felt, might  form a nucleus, of a home  maker service to be used in  support of a nursing program  provided by the department of  health.  Members were advised that  the Christmas dinner would be  held on Thursday, Dec. 9 at the  Legion Hall at 1 p.m. and applications for tickets should be  made to any member of the  executive committee.

Safe driving  Gargrave aim  All citizens, should get behind  Attorney General Robert W.  ' Bonner in his compaign to improve the automobile driving  habits of British Columbians  in the next 12 months, Tony  Gargrave, MLA says.  The first six months of 1965  saw 17,500 accidents reported  to the Motor Vehicle branch  in British Columbia. This is an  increase of four percent from  the same period last year.  10,750 drivers have been ruled  off the road owing to caught  convictions for careless or improper driving during the same  period this year.  Mr. Bonner has reported  that according to present  trends about 25,000 people will  be under suspension by the end  of 1965. We should get behind  the Attorney General in his  drive for driving safety, Mr.  Gargrave   said.      -  Sssoj  PARKINSON'S  HEATING Ltd.
