Rally  100 quite happy  Over 100 happy Pender Harbour youngsters were entertained on Saturday afternoon last  week, at a Christmas "party in  the Legion Hall, Madeira Park.  Sponsored and organized by the  Ladies Auxiliary to the Royal  Canadian Legion, the party was  a huge success.  A film showing, by Mr. Tjor-  hern of the high school teaching  'staff,   was   a   popular   feature,  while   two  pupils   of  Mrs.   Ed*;:-  Lowe,    Barbara   Cameron ^aridr  April Walker, were a big hit in  their, novelty   dancing   number,  ; The   Irish  Washerwoman.   Mrs. -  Caryl Cameron officiated at '."the;  piano, and led the youngsters in  rbjusirig carol, singing.  The big feature, the spectacular, entry of Santa Claus, realistically portrayed, by Hugh Horn-  sey, who usually does a conscientious job of anything connected with the Legion. Hughie dis?  tributed great, big,fatherly kisses to the tots, and bags of candy  to all and sundry, and guffawed  his way right into the hearts of  all the kiddies in'\a manner that  Santa himself might have envied  ���?/'��� Legionnaires had done an ex- i  cellent job of ������' decorating the  hall with a seasonal motif, plus  a huge, decorated Christmas  tree festooned with lights; a feature that rounded off a happy affair, carried out to perfection.  Sechelt's  village council at its  te meeting   on   Wednesday  evening  of last week   ^decided to    drop  ^ further opposition to the instal-  '   lation of a system  to. discharge  . chlorinated effluent from "a" sewage    system for     the  new  St.  Mary's hospital  and the  Indian  J  reserve area,' jnto. Trail" Bay.  .   This was done after the hear-  , ing of  officials of "_  government  departments arid medical health  ,  officers for the, -" district. These  officials   announced-.work would  _ start on the .project by Jan. 15  * to allow  it to come  under  the  ^federal  "government    winter  J: works plan "and ��� also to/use-the  �� provincial government -grant, that  4 would expire, on March "31. 'The  4 laying of the pipeline into deep  water  would   be done with   the  aid of skin "divers.  '/   Councillor Bernel Gordon continued his protest     maintaining  ' he required*time' to   ' check the  answers . he,   obtained   from  the  officials  at the   meeting.  Before  -��� the vote was taken    councillors-  were asked their opinion of the.  project in jthe light of the explanations they'had"heard.

The use of detergents in the  hospital and their "effect da the .'  system would not be a problem  because there would be no ac--  cumulation and no foaming out- ;  side the plant.  No  problem  of ���  this  sort had been experienced ,  at   Gibsons   where  there   is   an  effluent line running out to deep  water.

Zoning to  be settled  ' Sechelt's zoning bylaw which  has come before municipal council quite a number of times recently has reached the point  where a special council meeting  will be called early in January  to clarify council's position.  This will be done to allow the  mechanics of preparing the bylaw and public hearings which  would follow, before the bylaw  can reach the point of becoming  law.  Councillor Swain wanted each  mefiiber of council to have in his  possession a complete set of Sechelt bylaws so when ratepayers  asked questions he would be able  to give an answer. Council voted  to first seek information from  the department of municipal affairs on this point. It was suggested there might be too many  interpretations of any bylaw if  every councillor had to offer advice at any time. Chairman Mrs.  Johnston preferred that council  as a whole should .make any in-  terpretations that might have to  be made. \   ��,  Coast News, Dec. 26, 1963.

But history knows  Him best as the author of the most beloved story in all literature: the  Nativity story.  It has had a greater impact on the minds and hearts of men  than any novel, play or poem.

LUKE :'        '7 X .' '��� .���'. ^ ��� ���;  Long before the Birth of Christ, Isaiah the prophet    predicted  "the ox knows his Owner, and the ass his Master's, crib" (Isaiah 1:3).  Because of the part animals played in the Nativity, legends have  grown up all over the world about them.  It was a widespread story that animals had the power of speech  at midnight on Christmas Eve, and that they then knelt in adoration.- ��� ���'"'���.  Bees hunimed a song of praise then, but only those dear to God  could hear them. Birds sang all night on that holy Eve, and their  song was more melodious than ever . . . and because the cow warmed the Baby Jesus with her breath, it is sweeter than that of any  animal. '..���'���'���   .=! .'������.!.'    -.'.-'---       .  The loveable St. Francis, friend to men and nature, felt that  all creation should rejoice at Christmas, and since the dumb creatures had no other way of doing so, they should have bettfer food  and inore comfort.  ' He asked that people, throw corn and grain on the streets for the  birds to enjoy the festival too, and all, ;as he" says, "for reverence of  the Son of God Whom on such a night the blessed Virgin Mary did  lay down in the stall between the ox and the ass."  The Davis Ottawa Diary  By JACK DAVIS.  M.P.  .,'   Coast-Capilano Constituency  When Canada's. ten provincial,  premiers came to Ottawa recently each was armed with a well  worded brief setting out his  views as to future federal-provincial relations. The brief which  received the most attention, at  the outset, was that submitted  by the Honorable Jean Lesage  of Quebec. One paragraph, in  particular, excited a great deal  of comment both inside and outside of Parliament.  TIr~ section of Mr. Lesage's  hri~? ���vouli, if adopted, have  seriously limited the powers of  the federal government with regard to international trade,  transportation and the establish-  in ont of monetary policy in Canada.  Mr. Lesage's brief was adamant on one point, namely that  the policy making powers of the  provinces should remain intact.  Meanwhile he was proposing that  some, if not all, of Ottawa's-  powers should be handed over to  a; series of federal-proviricial  committees.  While little more was heard  about the transfer of these powers to the provinces, the joint  committee idea caught on. A  series of federal-provincial conferences, for example, have been  set up to deal with those policy  fields  which have been shared  by the two levels of government ever since Confederation.  Each conference will be limited  to specific issues. Held throughout the year they will culminate  in a summit conference to be  held at the prime riiinisterial  level.  One such meeting has already  been held. It involved the provincial and federal ministers  concerned with industrial development." Another meeting with  regard to agriculture is to be  held before the end of December. Indian affairs comes next  and then public works. -But, easily the most interesting of these  conclaves ��� apart from the summit conference at which the  prime minister will meet the  premiers ��� is a federal-provin-  cal meeting of finance ministers.  This is now set for February,  1964.  It is significant that this meeting is to be held a few weeks be--  fore Finance Minister Walter  Gordon hands down his next  budget. One can be sure that the  views of .provincial ministers of  finance will be Heard in no uncertain terms. These undoubtedly will conflict one with the  other. However Mr. Gordon, like  the other, federal ministers and  the prime minister himself, will  have a better idea of provincial  reactions to his-proposals than  would otherwise have been the  case. '  At this  season  of giving,   we.

OnFri-^'  day night the pupils of Roberts ";;  Creek School played to a com- ���:  pletely filled house. ;  The tiny division fours, whose  teacher is Mrs. Peterson, starts  ed proceedings with a choral'  reading and all "looked demure  and earnest in their best bib  and tucker.  This   was   followed   by   some   '  very large robins  of pre-school   ':  age, or to use their'own vernacu-   ���  lar,   wobin   wed  bweasts.   Mrs.*  Birkin was their director.  Mr. Fleming's flutophone band ���-'���������  then took over and presented a  selection of well-known tunes in  masterly style.  The curtain then went up on "a  colorful  Indian  scene  which'included a teepee set in a forest  which was peopled by about 30  Indian braves and maids, including; a mighty chief in full regalia and a pretty grandmother, to  say  nothing  of  a  tiny .papoose  strapped  safely  to   a  board  on  Mama's back. This tribe lived; a  merry,..musical life,  and,  quite  unaware of an audience, ate at  their gaily painted five-foot eating boat and'played; drums  on  v  the    floor'   with   their    wooden .,  spoons. These were Mrs.  Galli-   :  ford's grades two and three, pu-'  pils.  Next came the Princess and  the Swineherd, grade four, in a  variety of colorful characters in-',  eluding Ja: Princess, Prince, Messenger, Emperor, Ladies in Waiting and Pages. Then grades four  and five in Double  Dutch and  arfATS3-x*,-i;���-  Songs of the Sea, all suitably attired iri -Dutch or naval dress,  and a gay. dancing'arid singing  group they wer.te^These were pU  pils .of Mrs.'; Wari��|f X i  The Indian grandmother? then  appeared ^as Debbie Baba to delight all; with a, soloXdance, The  Ball and the Jack.   ..  This brought on a fashion show  to end all fashion shows. The  models were .the boys -in Mr.  Fleming's room^ and they displayed everything from bathing  suits to night attire to evening  gowns; from the flapper era to  the day?after tomorrow. Their  critical audience were, the girls  : in their, room. The commentator  Young people  show interest  The monthly meeting of Roberts Creek Community Association on Dec. 11 was well attended in spite of the cold,' and it  was good to see younger people  taking: interest in coirimunity^ affairs. .   ��� X-x ':ry-  The committee working oh the  roads-petition reported consider,  able progress and it was decided  that the petitions; should be^ given to our representative, .Tony  Gargrave, MLA, early in the new  year. A letter from Mr. Gargrave  was read at the meeting, assuring  his full support.  Under new business the Roberts Creek Hall was again rented to the Mt. Elphinstone Recreations committee for another  year, as this arrangement had  been found beneficial to all con-'  cerned. Next meeting Jan. 8.  was a  gorgeous blonde with * a  fine knowledge of women's styles  The, Littlest. Angel '.story. ,was  to have been read by~Mys. ���D.  Thomas, but a short In'th'ejpub-  iic address system r prevented  this from taking, place.. .  Santa Claus unexpectedly dropped in at the close of the program   with   presents   for   every  child from infancy to grade sev- '  en. Each was given an orange  and a candy cane to round out  an   exciting   evening.   Refreshments were ^supplied by the Parents' Auxiliary who worked with <  the  teachers- in   costuming   the .  children and'helping where needed. , f.  The auxiliary thanks all who  attended work parties and in  other ways contributed to the  success of the concert. Special .  thanks go to Albert Danroth,  Ron McSavaney and Ernie Fossett of the Recreation Commit- ,  tee for all their aid and to Mr.  E. Prittie, the able M.C.  OES party  pipes haggis  Let it ever be said that the  OES is a dignified and serious  order. On the occasion of their  Christmas party on Dec. 19 the  men in the chapter, who had undertaken the catering for the  supper, solemnly piped in the  haggis as the ladies sat at the  long  tables.  Except that the pipes were an  accordion and the piper's kilts  didn't fit, and the haggis looked  more like a small portion" of  doughnut holes which were hardly -: noticed as all eyes were on  the gorgeous creature who carried it, and the others in the procession had that different look,  the traditional march was such  as to make any good Scot's kilt  curl.  Supper was followed by a shadow play^ enacted -bv Mesdames  E.���Wakefield. P. Osborne, B.  Rankin, E. Hayes, D. Aitchison  to 'J the " mood music played by  Mrs. _C. Cameron. Mrs. D. Robil-  liard was the narrator. The play  certainly proved something, probably that it-is-wise to keep, off  operating tables, or at least, to  have,a doctor who knows what  he is operating Jor.  A Santa Claus appeared from  somewhere and distributed presents to one and all.  Present pin  ON CHRISTMAS DAY, Johnny Wayne and Frank Sinister will be  helping to bring a Merry Christmas to Canadian troops serving  overseas. They have taped a special CBC radio show Which is being distributed to points in..-Europej the Middle East, the Congo  and Indo-China, as well at 13 RCAF bases in the north of Canada.

Best Wishes  from the Management and  HOWE SOUND PULt* DIVISION Roasting apples flavor wassail  In Saxon times, the Wassail  Bowl at feast days was an important ceremony. Prepared in  a  large wooden bowl,  the base  ���Of the drink was cider. Other  ingredients were added, the  whole set in front of a log fire,  and apples tied above it. As the  apples  roasted,   the   juice  drip-  . ped into the bowl.  A jug of Somerset cider with  a lighted candle stuck in it was  ^"flapdragon." Cock ale was' a  concoction made from ale,  raisins, cloves and the liquor  from the braising of an ancient  cockerel. Spiced ale and roast  apples    was    known    also    as  "lamb's wool."  In the English west country at  one time, a faggot of green  timber was bound about with  strips of ash' and flung onto the  blazing Yulelog. The loud snapping of each band was accompanied by the consuming of a  quart of cider by the assembled  company.  Another Somerset custom was  the badger feast. At the Cow  Inn, the badger was roasted  over an open fire in the bar  parlor, and then the company  gathered around the landlord's  table to partake of a tasty slice  of the meat.  EVERYONE AN ARTIST. Christmas is a time when everyone can  let- their artistic talents run rampant, using their imaginations in  decorating their homes or even in ingenious' present wrappings.  Others like to make their own Christmas centre pieces ��� and all it  takes is a piece of birch, and a few bells, bows and bubbles to  create a-stunning table decoration such as shown in picture.  ...Merry Christmas    | Which toy for whom?  himself and blunt scissors^ a  "scrapbook, paste, crayons, paints  plasticene or modeling clay are  all creative play material. Even  a young child can learn ,to take  care of records and use a record  machine and there is a wide selection of records for children,  - songs, music of different types,  such as band music.  Some mothers insist on a drum  being beaten outdoors, and in  choosing playthings musical instruments should not be forgotten. A xylophone on which a child  can learn to play simple tunes,, a  recorder, a mouth organ, an ac-  ,, cordion all have a great attraction for certain school age children.  Imaginative play contributes  much to a child's growth. "Playing school"-requires a blackboard  and chalk, and various uniforms  such as.a nurse, a Mountie, a  cowboy make pretend games '  much more -real."  The cost of a plaything should  be divided by the number of  months it is used. A suitable, well  made toy contributes, greatly to  a child's development.11 When you  go shopping-for a toy be sure you  select' one which will appeal to  the age, the skill arid the interest  of the child, who will receive it.  2 .: Coast News,  Ken, Larry, Jack and Cliff  KENMAG PARTS  Gibsons .

Wilson  Creek  (formerly Totem Collison, Gibsons)  Here's wishing  \'��f^* everyone the best j  'q\ the gay Holidaysl  Morgans Mens Wear  Sechelt  By NANCY CLEAVER  With  Christmas  not very  far  away,   countless     parents,   relatives arid friends of children are  wondering which toy to select as  a  gift   for  a  particular   boy  or  girl. The [ array of playthings  in  the stores is packed with a wide  variety   of   play   material.   The  aisles are crowded with customers.  It is important to make a tentative selection of the kind of toy  you want to buyand decide on the  approximate price you can pay  before you set out on a shopping  : expedition.      .  - A toy' should be suitable for  the age of, the child, simple  /enough for, him to enjoy, without  being bored, aiid difficult enough  to challenge his interest. Puzzles  are the favorites and they are cut  in varying number of pieces of  different sizes to appeal to-different ages. An electric train which  would thrill a boy of eight or  nine is too complex for a pre-schooler to manipulate safely and.  satisfactorily.  .  A child becoriies very fond of a  " certain toy and it is most frustrating  if it  falls apart.  A toy  should be sturdily built so that it  will stand up to'constant use.  Intricate mechanical toys often  fall apart or are damages so that  they will :riot work.  They are a  poor  choice because   once   they  are wound up there is nothing left  for the child to do except watch  the toy;  A child wants to be active and  blocks are a particularly good  toy because a child can build so  many things with them. The more  complex building sets such as  Meccano and Erector provide  many happy hours for-children.  Girls as well as boys enjoy them  and a child can build by himself  or with a chum.  Small boys, as well as their  sisters, often like a doll and have  fun with housekeeping equipment.  Dolls will always be near 'the top  of the list as a girl's plaything,'  and doll clothes, doll houses, furniture, a doll carriage are gradually added to the little .girl's possessions. A little child copies an  adult's action, arid thus a toy  telephone, a doll washtub and basin, ��� a small broom' and mop are  all' good play material.  Active; outdoor exercise is necessary for the growth of strong  bodies and although they may  seem expensive, a wagon, a tricycle and for an older child a bicycle are good investments.  Skates, and skis, a toy snow shovel, a child's gardening ^equipment or fishing set are also go��d  choices.

About 24 years ago, the boys  of Gibsons Landing built themselves boats in the old glue  factory, and Roy Malyea, one  of them built this one. It is a  double-ended 14-foot, one-man  fishing boat, carvel built of 1-  inch cedar strips, with the lines  of  a   salmon's     body,     and   a  Management and Staff  Tyee Airways Ltd.

A year qr so after he built it,  he and my son .Willie were working in Osborne's logging camp  at Halfmoon Bay, and Willie  bought the boat from Roy with  the first money he ever earned'.  Roy had turned down chances  to sell it for use as a farriily  boat, because it ...was a fisherman's boat and he wanted to  sell it to a fisherman. He did,  for if there are ariy fish around,  Willie  can  catch them.  During his teenage years at.  Hopkins he used to take orders  for fish, and then go out to Salmon-Rock and fill them. He had  a farhiliar, a seagull named  Deacon, who spotted the red  boat at a distance and perched  on Willie's head while the fish  were cleaned arid cut up, and  during this partnership there  never was an accident, .  Years   have   passed  and  Willie has'built his . own, dreamerie  on Savary Island and'has boats:  with   outboards,   on   which   my:  small    grandsons     nonchalantly'  flick a switch  and; zoom  away,  but there is nothing there irivthe  class of the red rowboat, which  I inherited.  About a year ago Roy came  to our place and surprised my  wife by wanting to buy back  that boat for the original price,  after all these years, explaining that he w'anted it for a model for a new one. It seems that  Willie has the same idea,' for he  spent1 that rainy Saturday taking  measurements. His industrial  arts class has to build a boat af-"'  ter New Year and just what  better could they re-create than  this one, so Willie plans to lead  the way- and show them how.v  and make-a hew boat for him-,  self and one for me. Roy now  gets the original back as a  Christmas present, delivery later.. ���  ��������� "  One  of   my best   remembered  trips in that boat was my first  SWINGING IN WITH  GREETINGS  one to Gibsons, three days after  we came here to stay. For 30  years I had gone to my office in  Vancouver by ferry from* North  Vancouver, and that was now. a'  thing of the past. It occurred" to  1 me that there was nothing to stop  me from going to Gibsons Landing, as it was then, most pleas;  antly by water. It was a perfect  autumn day, and oh passing  Soames Point, I saw the late Professor Henderson mowing his  lawn.  I came ashore, and when he  expressed surprise at seeing me  there in the middle of the morning and in the middle of ,the week  I told him that I, too was now  retired. When I left him, >we  wished a wish that we could \do  this again in ten years' time. The  time passed, and on the same day  and on the same, kindJ of a day,  I had the pleasure of repeating  the call, and found the Professor  still mowing his.lawn, but he had  gone modern, arid was chasing a  power-mower.; ; ���  He recalled the wish, and his  eyes twinkled, and he expressed  , the opinion that this was an emergency, arid that his wife had  something for an emergency: We  went to the house,, and explained  matters to Mrs. Henderson, using the Scots' inflection on the  word "emergency" and that drew  the cork out of the bottle. We  sperit the rest of the morning under the professor's vine and ^fig-  tree, both laden, and talked of  Homer and his wine-dark deep:  I can look back with pleasure on  lots of similar more or less business visits on West Howe Sound,  and am glad to think that while  the days of the horse and buggy  - doctor are over, this , rowboat  lawyer can still navigate.,'XXXJ.

There; used to be lots of sal-  man, and seals, but I haven't  seen, a salmon jump for. years,  and the only seal that I have seen  for a long time was early this  fall. I saw him watching me, so  I stopped rowing and whistled  bagpipe tunes to hitn arid;he came  within 20 feet ofine, and was obviously taking, it all in. ! had that  morning: tailored the turie "The  Song of the, Clyde?.' to fit the bagpipes, and I tried it on him; The  effect was startling. Instead of  submerging quietly,; stern: first,  he jumped out of the water; making a nose-dive, and as .he went  under, slapped the >water a  mighty smack as if to say "That  tore.it."':,   :���:������".      ;;.      '       '  Theri there, was that sea-lion.  Last year, this fellow,- the size of  a,cow, tried out for size all the  boat floats from Mr. Dixon's, below his barber shop in Gibsons, to  Hopkins, and finalliy selected the  new and expensive styrofoam  float in front of the new Brodie  mansion at Hopkins, and lay  there in obvious content, as well  he might. '  About the first morning he was  iri residence, I was passing, and  two Hopkins ladies on the shore  motioned me to look at him, so  I let my boat drift to within six  feet of him, and I' whistled to  him. He made no effort to leave,  but just made himself more com.  , fortable and wiggled his flippers  at me.  ji* jfe 5fe  I then noticed a third Hopkins  lady   taking movies of  all  this  from the verandah of her home,  so I came to the shore, and from  the boat asked her if she'd like  to come out in my boat and take  her movies  at close  range. She  said ,'I'm scared." I didn't have  my glasses on but I didn't need  them t0 observe that, while clad,  she wasn't what one would call  dressed  for a social  call,  even  on a sea-lion. So, I said "If you  are scared of the seal, remember  that you have your lawyer with  you, and if  you are   scared  of  me, go and put some clothes on."  She replied "Wait a minute, until I get dressed." It seemed to  me that within that time she reappeared in a stunning two-piece  bathing   suit,  and  got   into  the  bow of my boat, and in a minute  or two we approached  the sea-  lion.  * ^ *  That highly intelligent 'and observant beast raised himself on  his fore-flippers, took a good look  at my passenger, then scratched  the back-'of his neck with his  right front flipper. When I men.  tioned this, I was told I was draw-,  ing the long-bow, but months later, Albert CrOwhurst, at Gibsons  told me that he had been stringing together some local movie  film and there was one of the'  sea-lion, who scratched his neck  as the camera shakily approached him, and I found that it was  our friend.  When Roy made the boat, and  Willie made the noiseless oars  for it, they combined by chance  to give it exactly the rowing rhythm of marching men, and I  found that I could whistle my  way to Gibsons on bagpipe tunes.

If you  try it out, quite possibly you will  decide to make it a regular practice in other months too. Why  not give the reading-aloud habit  a chance to woi'k its magic in  your family circle?  For Christmas Eve or Christmas Day the beauty and drama  of the stories of the shepherds  and the Wise Men read aloud  from the Bible cannot be surpassed. But much earlier in  December do experiment with  reading aloud in your family circle.  y|. T�� *fi  If there are several children in  the home, let the school age  youngsters take turns in reading  short pieces to the little ones.  We once heard John Masefield  say in a public lecture, Poetry  was written to be read aloud ���  and there are delightful poems  for this time of year.  There are many lovely stories  of the shepherds. One of the  most appealing is The Little  Shepherd Who Did Not Go. This  story has special charm for children, because the main character is a boy, David,- who kept  his word, who was courageous  and gentle. Best of all,, it was he  who held the Christ Child in his  arms on that first Christmas  Day.  Dickens' Christmas Carol, although written over a century  ago, continues to hold a foremost  place in the affections of people  all over the world. It has few .  equals as story to read aloud in  the family circle, because it  Sholds the interest of the yoUng-  . est and the oldest from start to  finish. It really is a carol even  if it is not sung in the sense of  being short and1 direct and hav-.  ing the same charm throughout.  ���In our family we have found it  fun for each of us to read one  paragraph and then pass the book  on to the next, person.       ���  1��       ���      1��    ' *P.'.  Why not visit your public library and see if your librarian '  can help you? The little Mexican boy and his donkey in The  Small one,' was one delightful library discovery which we made  one December. Radio and movie  versions of The Littlest Angel  have made this a much loved  story, especially for small boys!  It; too, is a. fine choice for the  home bookshelf.  The Other Wise Man by Henry  van \ Dyke is a more leisurely  story in quite a different style  It appeals to adolescents with all  ITS NOT  TOO LATE  ANSWE-.

Ask trim to mark the  paragraphs he  thinks the whole  family might appreciate.  ��� *      *  You might like to have a Christ-  ��� mas   scrap-book   for   quotations,  poems, and short Christmas stories. Choose a large one so that  you can also keep the beautiful  colored   Christmas   prints  which  appear   in   the    magazines   and  weekly newspaper sections. Each  Christmas   some   very, readable  stories  and  poems  are   printed.  If you have a happy time reading  a   certain  story  or poem   aloud  this year, it is worth keeping for  another season. Make your Christ,  mas scrap book a family project.  Let your child paste in some col- .  ored Christmas pictures,  or bet-  ter still, draw some of his own  and color them.  It will add greatly to the family's interest in reading aloud  this December if you enlist their  help in choosing a new book to  buy for this purpose. Invest in  a Christmas anthology or even o  single story for family reading.  If you own your own Christmas  books, then the members of the  family can enjoy reading in a  leisurly way. Individuals can  encase something which attracts  them to read aloud. In your fam-  llv copy you ��� can keep a record  at the back of the book of the  pages read on different occasions.  *      * '   * "  Reading   aloud  can  become   a  source of enjoyment not only for.  children but for parents too. In  the Pocket book  A Parents Guide  to Children's Reading, which we,  can  heartily recommend,  Nancy  Larrick, the author, tells of a  Reading Aloud Shelf set .up in a  factory, stocked mainly with picture books. The workers were invited to borrow books to -read,  aloud to their children and in  two days the shelf was bare. On  the third day the books began  to be returned.  "We do more reading now and  I get as much kick.out of it as  the kids," ' one father said enthusiastically. Do try Reading-  Aloud Magic in your home.

E & M GROCERY  AND CONFECTIONERY  Sechelt  Hon. Azellus Denis, postmaster general, has issued the following statement to clear up a  r.:isv.nderstanding regarding the  bilingual nature of postage  stamps.  Mr. Denis stated in sthe house  of commons'' on Nov. 19 that  there would be one stamp issued in 1964 bearing only the  b'lirTTl .word Canada. However, since, that time, he has  discr.ssed the .matter further  with officials of his department  and: fin cling 'that it is possible'  to include the words postes-post-  age in the stamp without spoiling the design, has instructed  that this be done.   -  Mr. Denis noted that his announcement of some days ago  to the effect that the use.of the  v.-ore's postes - postage was to  be dropped from commemorative "stamps,-had brought several   complaints"   and   enquiries  USE CHRISTMAS SEALS  FIGHT TUBERCULOSIS  Sechelt  85i-t_M-N3ft-ti��ia-fe����M-ft-ft^^  7\\\7\IU//A  WARMEST  WISHES  May this  Christmas  glow with  Y )9Y For  you.

He -noted as an example,  a stamp planned," for 1964 . to  commemorate the conference at  Quebec which led to Confederation. This stamp, he pointed, put,  bears the words ''Conference: de  Quebec Conference,"- and-needs  no further wprdnig to indicate  its bilingual nature.  In      these       commemorative  stamps, space is at a premium  and extra wording poses a difficult design problem. On the  other hand, regular issue stamps  normally bear only the word  Canada and the denomination.  On these stamps, the words  postes - postage serve the purpose of indicating the bilingual  nature of the stamp, and the  words will be retained. This  policy will ensure that all Canadian stamps bear wording in  both languages to indicate the  bilingual nature of the country.  Q Ml OKIES f-ATl'RK, ISC,  ,*~"..

One of these- is a tune which  was first heard in Sardinia by a  Pipe-Major Ross, leading his men  to the Crimean war.. He made it  into a stirring march for the  pipes and named it "The Green  Hills of Tyrol" and it became one  of the accepted tunes played at  Retreat by Scots regiments the  world over ���'������:-.  '��������� *        *     . "*.  A few years ago Andy Stewart  spent three inspired hours in a  Scottish pub, using backs of envelopes and cigarette packages  for his notes, and set the words  of the "Scottish Soldier" to this  tune, and then went on in to a  BBC performance to make it  an instant hit. In the next two  years he collected twenty thousand pounds from it for his royalties I too have set words to two  or three of these marches, and  while it has been a. fascinating  exercise, that has been the only  reward. "��� . ���".  I have in mind  a hltmg tune  to which I should like to set words  descriptive of a rowboat ride to  Gibsons on   a morning in early  summer, when the old fruit trees  along the shore of rthe Chekwelp  Indians Reserve   are.a  cloud   of  froom.   and. higher  up the   hillside  the   dogwoods   shine   white  amid the varied green of the conifers.   My   reward   might   come  from the Chamber of Commerce  in  the   shape   of   Gibsons  fried  chicken  and   Sechelt   apple  pie,  recently suggested as tourist bait  for the .Sunshine Coast.- -  '.*'"���  ���*-. ...*:  My song might also answer the  query of the Gambier Island cor.  respondent   whose letter in   the  Coast News posed  the query as  to what there was in Gibsons. If  he came with; me, and saw what :  comes out of Gibsons on an ebb  tide, he would get a  surprising  answer. So did I, this fall, when  the government was re-planking  Gibsons  wharf, for I picked up  a   collection   of  empty   whiskey.  bottles   in   all the new   shapes,  that were just what -I needed for  my   blackberry    wine.    Rowing  against the tide,.! had. ample time ���������;'  to pick them up, but the homeward trip had its highlights too.  During the summer months the  -breeze    rises   in .the   forenoon,  bends around the Headlands, and  blows gentlyup West Howe Sound  ; and to take advantage of this my  son fitted my boat with a small  sail on an aluminum  mast and  boom," so I row   to Gibsons, in  the calm of a morning and sail  home,   sometimes . like  a .scared  cat, when the wind is brisk.  Last summer there was a letter in' the Province complaining  of the thousands of plastic cups  rowfoostt  that, littered the waters of he  Gulf of Georgia between Tsaw-  wassen and Swartz Bay. These  ���were thrown overboard from the  : government "Queens" and were  wafted across me boundary line  to litter the beaches. south of the  border; A Washington senator  thereupon raised his.voice in pro-  7 test and was heard in Victoria,  and this dumping, ceased.  We   had   this   phenomenon   in.  minor degree in West Howe Sound  and I used to see more plastic  cups  than seagulls  dancing   on  the waves as I. sailed home. Then  I learned that these  cups were  ideal   for   seedlings   and   I   set  about   collecting   them.   It  took  ���some' practice   to   acquire   the  ���knack *of picking one up, on ac-  . count of the  speed and drift  of  the boat under sail,, but it combined the elements of pig-sticking  and  tent-pegging   in  India,   and  then some. Mr.  Bennett's ukase  that his  girls get back to  cups  and saucers :killed that game, but  riot before I had lifted my quota.  "..I -have just checked for Willie  how many strakes there are between the keelson and the gunwale on my-boat, so that means  ���my new love will soon be on the  stocks, arid this is my farewell  and a requiem to the old one.  For a typical day in your life,  choose  ,a    simple-to-sew   casual  with a flattering neckline.

In Australia, it's day when it's  night here, and their Christmas  season is in mid-summer. In December great hedges of poinsettia  and fuchsia are in full bloom.  Geraniums, with very large  blooms, are also planted as hedges. ���'~ '.'.'������������  'The fireplace in most homes is  "Daddy, may I have a potato? You gave me a piece of  charcoal againT  .

In Australia, snow is found only on mountain tops. ; '������'���:.  Most Canadian homes': have a  Christmas tree. A number of Australians do put up imported  Christmas' trees. Their only native tree, is the eucalyptus;; This  famous gum tree sheds its bark  instead of its leaves.  The Christmas dinner tradition  in Australia rests largely with the  older families. They try to keep  up the customs of- opening gifts  after breakfast with a noon meal  of turkey or beef. But some simply prepare a big picnic meal and  go off to the beach, or eat outdoors in the garden!  Canadian children hear about a  Santa Clous with sleigh and reindeer visiting their homes to bring  gifts for good boys arid girls. In  Australia, deer or reindeer are  seen only in zoos, and Father  Christmas, as he is called, arrives by plane.  Winter sports as we know therii  don't exist in Australia. Australians play tennis with unabated-  enthusiasm the wholes year; and  at Christmas, swimming, surf-  boating, wate'f skiing and boating are widely enjoyed:  At Alice Springs on the edge  of the Simpson desert, the teriip-  erature is often 123 degrees* of  heat, and sometimes reaches 132.

Christmas is wrapping gifts, and wrapping them with imagination. You  can find unusual and inexpensive  gift wrap ideas around the house,  especially iri your sewing robin...  For instance,  a  scrap of black  cotton velveteen and black lace  trim make elegant wrappings for  a sophisticates gift,    To please  a very feminine lady, wrap her  gift in pastel paper and lavishly  trim  with  cotton  eyelet  ruffles,  ribbon; and lace appliques.   For  a gift of early; Canadiaha,    use  cotton ticking or bright red���-calico as wrapping material.-Tie up  the package with strands of red  ball fringe or cotton     rickrack.  For a woman who ^sews;- wrap a .  box of Christmas cookies in a cotton print fabric    which can be  made into kitchen towels or pot  holders  later,   Use   rickrack   to  tie up the box, and attach spools  of matching thread to the bow arrangement. If yoiir gift is for the  both, fragrant soap or bath salts,  wrap it in a cotton terry cloth  hand towel. One of the new floral-  printed styles could be used to  wrap a matching towel ensemble.  Wrap each gift. to. suit the contents or the person wbo receives  it, and you'll add an extra mear-  sure of    thbugMfulness    to the  simplest present. v-  MAY CHRISTMAS  GLOW WITH JOY  FOR EVERYONE!

Lucken, Wilson Creek and  the other to the home of Mrs.  Lorna Koike at West Sechelt.  The latter was due to an overheated heater and was under  control when the firemen - arrived.  A-2:15 p.m. on Saturday, Dec.  8, Bill Rankin, one of the firemen, when driving past a vacant  house at the'corner of Browning  Road and Highway 1G1 noticed  smoke. On investigating he .found  the interior of the house a mass_  of flames and knowing it was"  beyond* control he telephoned'the  RCMP from Wilson Creek. They  in turn contacted the Fire Brigade and when Fire Chief Parish and Capt. T. V. Gory arrived  on the scene the house was completely demolished.
