Council, he said, wanted  to get something sensible out of  the situation and needed all the  information it could get.  Appearing  were Dave   Parry  "of   Fabric   House   and   Lome  Smith of the Coin Laundry, both  agencies for Vancouver department stores, Ken Watson of Fun-  "land Arcade and William Murray of Murray's Garden and Pet  Shop.  '"��� The two department store  agencies representatives sought  clarification on their status as  they felt they were being taxed  as-mail order, houses when they  were' merely agencies. When Ato-  botsford rates^were mentioned,  Mr."Parry said that was wholly  department store owned mail oi"-  der houses. Local places were  agencies only.  ���Mr. Watson asked what is a  vending machine? Clerk David  Johnston read out from West  Vancouver's business tax bylaw  its handling of vending machines  which was broken down to five  categories or types of machines  carrying varying rates of taxation. It was also shown that in  some cases a tax was set on  each machine.  Mr. Watson who said he had  machines in action fromi PoweK  River to Pemberton said he had  not bumped into the tax situation  until Gift>sons council presented  it.  Mr. Smith felt that council  should take a careful look at the  situation. When Mr. Parry wanted to know what benefit shop  keepers received from such taxation, Clerk Johnston said' that  it was a controlling factor and if  there were no taxation there  could be n'p control and itinerants could come in and council  could do nothing about them.  Mr. Murray complained about  the numiber of unlicensed gardeners Who sold plants each  spring having an effect on his  business.  Mayor Peterson . said the -bylaw before council was at the  third reading stage,, which when  completed would make it final.  ^However nothing could be done  in this direction until sometime  in January.'

Tttie grade eight band  led oflf, playing very well considering some of the members1 had  not played an instrument before this year. They were followed by  the grade nine band (second). A fashion show was given of clothes  made in grade 8, 9,ancf 10 sewing Classes, of which two are shown  (centre). Among many"displays was the display of Macrame from  ���Grades 9 and 10 (bottom).  h*forimed by board chairman,, J.  H. Tyner that if the board's finance committee cannot come up  with'a solution, the improvement  district could bring in its own  recommendations. He added, that  the Ibylaw was now in Victoria  awaiting official approval.  The issue caime up at last  week's Regional Board meeting  when a letter from- the West Sechelt Improvement District objecting to Bylaw 59 arguing that  the bylaw is not a contract to  supply water, but a -bylaw setting rates.  The West Sechelt letter to the  'board follows:  Dear Sirs: The trustees of  West Sechelt -anprovement District feel that the'imposition! of  the above mentioned bylaw (No.  59) is unjust arid unwarranted  We are opposed t0 the Regional  District arbitrarily setting bull-  water rates by bylaw.  Wiheifoer- the Regional District  agrees that there is a contract in  force at the present tiine or not,  does not alter the fact that the  matter is best handled toy contract. We believe the ���establishment of bulk water rates'.by a  negotiated contract to be the  much preferred method, in fact  the only method. Resortng to a  bylaw its the line of; least resis'-  tance, a means to an easy entt-  TM& bylaw: 4s :riot aj bylaw for  the setting of bulk water rates  by the Regional _>_strict genera.-  ly, but one designed spec-fficaily  for setting rates' for water used  by the Improvement; DisMtet  alone since the Regional District  does not sell water, iri bulk to  any other consumer.  We are not opposed to some  increase in the fate structure if  it is deemed necessary. However  we are opposed to the setting of  rates by, bylaw, and we are par-  tdcuarly opposed to section B of  this bylaw. There can "be no justification, for, this section at all.  The Improvement jDistri-t is  paying off debentures for the installation of its .mains arid for  improvements provided to the  source of supply for a further 20  years. (These improvements  halve since been expropriated  along: with all -other assets oif  Se*c-_elt Waterwoiiks1 Ltd.)  The board has a short memory  or could have, depending on how n  notx>efused to negotiate a contract s only asked that negotia-  tion_-be suspended temporarily  due t_- the Regional District experiencing extreme dif-iculty in  maintaining a sufficient supply  during peak demand periods during the past summer. Since these  difficulties "have all been settled  to the satisfaction of the Regional District, the Regional District  absolving themselves of responsibility entirely now or in the  future, it is right to expect that  since these matters have been  settled to their satisfaction' a  contract could be negotiated am*-  iaibly as to terms' and not have  to resort to a bylaw to fix these  rates.  The Regional District conducts  other business of the board by  contract. We therefore request  the board's negotiating coimmit-  tee������������be called upon to negotiate  a contract and that this bylaw be  rescinded.   ' '.,'������'."''  ���JH. Parker, for the West  .Sechelt Waterworks trustees.  Director: Thorold said directors of the West Seehelt Improvement District were not happy over the negotations. Chairman y Tyner replied '���,. there : was  always some reason for delay  and the last meeting was broken  ������of^by West Sechelt directors. If  the \ planning comimittee was not  able to come to an agreement  West Sechelt directors can bring  in their own recommendation,  the chairman added.  BUS FARE INCREASE  Sechelt Motor Transport has  applied to the Public Utilities  Commission for a 10 percent increase in Ibus fares' across the  board.

Reaisons for the changes were  outlined In a report by a special  coinmittee which prepared the  new rates. The special ���committee report was read to the board  by Director H. J. Almond of  .Area E .(Roberts Creek), it fol-  "Under the1 a-uthority of^ tlje  chaifmSh of the Repbnal _3oard  a .special committee, consasting  of the deputy chairman of ithe  planning comirhiittee with responsibility for building inspection  and the chairman of the finance  . commatee, reconsidered the scale  of building permit fees with the  intention to bring these fees into  a somewhat closer relatioivsihip  to the actual costs of the service.  "We were fully aware at all  times that bui'ldling inspection is  a service which ultimately benefits the whole comniunity and  should 'be rightly supported by  general taxation to a certain extent. -  "On the other hand the committee was also mindiful of the  recommendations by the minister   of   municipal   affairs   who  strongy suggested some time ago  that local authorities could and  should relieve the tax burden by  charging more realistic fees for  services provided to individuals.  "In the light of above the committee  came  to  the  coniclus-on  that the greatest di-rect benefit  from building inspection accrues  to the builder, who will became  the   owner   of  a  properly  and  saffefly constructed building. Not  much less benefit wall! go to a  later buyer, who is assured of  a'cquiring    a    sound    structure  which was subject to close, inspection and will conform to all  requirements   of   the   National  Buildling  Code.   The  advantage  to the community at large and  particularly the taxpayers who  do not require the service is only  indirect.  Therefore,   the  cohtr.-'  bution of the builder towardis the  overall cost of the service should  be somewhat more proportionate  to the advantages! gained.  "The present rate structure  for penroits provides only for a  relatively smaller fraction of the  total cost of the service to be recovered fronn the user of the service with a s__bstantial subsidy  provided by general taxation.  "The icommittee recommends  that the schedule of fees be amended to correct the rather unfair distribution of costs without  causing any undue hardship to  the builder. We also believe that  a more realistic and proper fee  above a mere nominal leftrel will  enhance the importance of a  building  inspection' in  the   eye  of the person appliying for a permit." ..���'--  The revised schedules for bu_ld  ing pennits as proposed1 follow:  Single family buildings and ail  structures and installationsc  Mindimum fee $10.00  Up to $15,000 ��� $3 per $1,000  $15,000 to $30,000 - $1.50 per $1000  $30,000 and over - 75c per $1,000  <2om_rieraal, industrial, multiple f__mi_y and other revenue  producing buildings (including  duplexes, apartment houses etc)  cmdrall struKJtures ��� andrinstalla-"  tions:  Minimum fee $10.00.

The Indian Affairs department  sought information from the  board at its last meeting as> to  wihether there were any Regional District plans to undertake a  sewage collection and treatment  system for the Sechelt area.  The 'board will inform ttie department it has no such plans  and suggests the matter be referred to the Sechelt council on  the basis that Sechelt might  want to consider a joint facility.  low bid gets  pump tender  The low tender of $19,995 was  accepted by Gibsons council for  installation of a sewage pumping  station at the end of the interception level. The tender was  awarded to Prodec Pump Equipment Lfd. as the lowest of two  tenders.  The recoonmendation of acceptance came from Dayton and  Knight, Gibsons sewage engineers. Council considered both  tenders. The $19,995 tender was  termed (basic. There will be  other costs arising out of the in-  initial  installation.  P.O.

The air was full of expectance and awe,  For the Holy Child that only shepherds saw.  This story's been told so often before, .  Though we never tire, and keep asking for more.  For the Child that was born, was Jesus Christ,  And his fate was.sealed that Christmas Night.  His life was filled wi*tlh trials and woes,  And He was constantly plagued by his foes.  But His Love, for his people, would always be,  And reach out to us for eternity.  But Christmas is no time to mourn,  But to sing praises to the Child horn,  In a lonely stable far far away,  On a tiny bed of clean fresh hay.  So now that this lovely Season's nigh  Stop, in your great mad rush to buy  The food and drunk and presents galore,  And think niy friends a little more,  Of Love and Peace and a night far away.

The Family Life movement on the Sunshine Coast, under the  advocacy of the Family Division Committee for this area,-is a pro-  virccially organized unit which works with other community officials* on family life problems.  Expansion of the operations of the committee due 'to stresses  and strains affecting family life has opened a vast field of endeavor  The committee has made arrangements with the School board to  nave night classes covering family problems ��� of .which' there are  many these days.  Just how successtfiul this committee can be depends on the endeavor put into its operation and the endeavor by the people who  require coaxing along toward a (better family life.  Recenty we halve.had three speakers covering the family life  problem. The first from Nana.mo explained the ramifications. of  the fairly large organization set up there to tackle the problem.  The second speaker sipoke on mental aspects of the situation'. The  ���most recent approach to the problem was when Rev. Jim Williamson obtained school board approval for conducting Faimiiiy Night  classes as a night school operation.  It should be interesting to see what can be done Iby a local operation involving people who have family problems and the other  people who have the desire to solve those problems'. The spirit  of the times requires some form of equilibrium in order that it can  take stock of itself. Maybe we can make a start on the Sunshine  Coast.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Kinsmen Park (now Dougall  Park) was turned over to Gibsons : council by the Anglican  New Westminster synod as a  public 'park.

Canadians everywhere are being forced to roll up the rug and  clean house, as. far as their financial ai__airs are concerned.  The federal government's new  broom is a Capital Gains Tax. It  is coming whether we like it or  not and affects all of us in some  degree right now.*  Finance Minister Edgar Benson has indicated that on or before January 1, will ibe Valiua^-  tion Day, the day Canadians will  have to begin keeping a Record  of some of the things they acquire whilch may have resale potential,   things   like:   land,   pictures  and  other works  of art,  jewellery,  stamp and  coin collections and many other items.  It is the government's intention that each citizen maintain  his   own   record  for   valuation  purposes. We will fast become a  nation  of record keepers,  says  Captax  Capital  Gains   Sertvices  Limited, at Don Mills/ Ontario.  How is the Capital Gains Tax  oalciilated?   That,  is   the   real  problem.   The  federal   government has  outlined two distinct  methods  for the. calculation of  this tax: The fair market value  method and the  tax free  zone  method. ���"���   . ���  It is important to note that  once an individual selects the  method he is going to use, he  will have to use that method.for  the rest of his life. That selection will, not have to be made  until March or April of 1973, but  everybody's record must be kept  from Jan. 1, 1972.  What follows is a series of  some of the important questions  that face Canadians.  Q.   What is a Capital Gain?  A. Any time an individual  ibuys capital property and then  sells it for a profit, this consti-.  fcutes* a Capital Gain.  Q. Is the tax on a capital  gain the same for everyone?  A. Capital gains are taxed under a special method laid out by  the federal government.  Fifty percent of the gain is added on to taxable income. In effect' this means the additional  tax on a $2,000 profit to an individual earning $25,000 per year  would be approximately $500. To  an individual earning $10,000 per  year, the additional tax would  be $2501  The small investor does' not  have to pay as large a tax as the  high-income large investor because in reality the Capital  Gains tax is only another form  oif income tax. This applies to  both individuals and corporations.  Q. Is everything I- own subject to Capital Gains Tax?  A.. No. Any article that is  sold for under $1,000 that is considered personal property is not,  under the act, subject to Capital  Gains taX. The most important  fact is that your principal residence is not at any time subject to a tax on any profit you  might make on selling.  Q. How does capital gains affect me as a middle income earner?  A. As a middle income earner, you most probably own all  or any of a home, cottage, securities, bonds and additional personal items such as stamp collections, works of art, jewellery,  etc. If you own all or any of  these ibeims, you will be subject  to Capital Gains tax if any of  these items are sold at a profit.  As mentioned in Question 3, everything is taxable, other than  your principal home and personal property sold for under  $1,000.  day Jan.l  R.. A capital loss, can be deducted from any capital gains  that you have made in a taxable  year. If your capital losses exceed your capital gains you can  deduct up to $1,000 from your  regular taxable, income and any  amount exceeding this $1,000  can be carried forward to the  next year and be dedlicted in  the same way as if these losses  were made during that year.  Q.     What records will I have  to keep?  A. Firstly, you will have to  keep a record of the purchase  price of any item that would, at  a later stage, be saleable. Also,  you will have to keep a record  of what it has cost you to buy  it. A good example is legal fees  and commissions, such as bro-  kerage fees oh security purchas- _  es. This must be added to your'  cost of buying. The same applies when selling, all these extra costs must be'taken off the  sale price. From the difference  between the. two figures it can  then be accurately calculated  as to what your gain or loss may  be. These records must Ibe keot  for as long as you have the item  concerned. It is also advisable  to keep every year the up-dated  value of any of these ilemis.  Q. The government has mentioned thait there will be a valuation day on or before January  1, 1972. What do I have t0 do" on  valuation day?  A. On that day you will have  to value all your assets, of the  types previously mentioned. On  items that are publicly traded,  the value will be fixed as of  the mariket price of that day.  Other items you will have to attach an evaluation to and in  most cases, your gain or loss  will be 'calculated from that  day. ���  Q.   How do I report this valu-.  ation? ��� -    ���   .''..'.  A. You do not have to report  this valuation to the government.  It ..is a record that you must.  '[ keep yourself' and the government, in most cases1, will accept  an approximate valuation of  most articles*. If the article,  however, is of major value, if  would be wise to obtain the serr  vices of a professional evalua-  tor. It is vital that you do establish a value for saleable possessions on this day.  Q. What happens if I paid  more for an item than it is worth  on valuation day.  A. The government has made  special provisions for cases such  as these. The taxpayer will have  a choice of two methods. He  could either use the cost of the  item in calculating his gains, or  the Valuation Day value. However, in using the first method,  which is the cost of the item,  the difiference (between the cost  of the item and the Valuation  Day value will be a 'tax free  zone.'  One important point to keep in  mind is that you do not have to  make up your mind to use either  method until the end- of 1972, but  once you have chosen one or the  other method everything you sell  must be classified under this  method. In many cases it will be  very difficult for the average individual to make this decision.  I would suggest that if .ycu are  unsure that you seek professional advice.  Q. What happens if I take a  loss on selling anything I own?  A. Any losses you may sustain in selling items that would  normally be subject to Capital  Gains tax in most circumstances  you can take a capital loss*. A  capital loss cannot be. taken for  such items as personal property,  car, boat and cottage. Items  such as stamp or coin collec-  tons or works of art, are classified under a separate section of  the Income Tax act and are  considered under the term 'Listed personal property' and this  type of personal property is subject to a capital loss.  Q. How do I handle a capital  loss?  O.   What happens to my estate  on death?  A. The federal government  has decided to get out of the estate tax field, instead they will  be levying a Capital Gains tax  on death. When an individual  di-es*, the federal government will  a*utornatically assume that e v-  erything he owns has been sold  to his beneficiaries at the moment of his death and any gains  on this sale will be taxable under the same methods as previously outlined. If,"however, the  total estate is left to the spouse,  there will be no assessment at  that time, but the spouse will  he deemed' to have received it  at the cost and/or Valuation  Day value that the deceased has  recorded. On the remaining  spouse's death, full tax will have  to be paid based ori the original.  purchase price and/or Valuation  Day  prices.

During the entire titme' the tree  is in use in the home, be sure  the Ibutt end is kept in water. Refill the container every day as  the tree absorbs ihe water which  keeps it fresh and green and reduces the fire hazard. Investigation carried on at the U.S. Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin, indicates that  the use of fire-ratardent chemicals oif ten does more harm than  good, hence the use of water is  recommended. ���  Be sure the tree is well' supported and is away from fireplaces, radiators', television sets  or  other  sources   of  heat.

But what about the other changes?  The waiting  how the system works.  A claim is filed. Weeks one and two are the waiting period and  no benefit is payable, but report cards must be returned.  Weeks three and four are generally the first, weeks for which  benefit is paid. At the end of the fourth week the report cards  are returned. Then the first cheque is issued. There are exceptions .... money received when you leave work may affect  your claim, and there's advance pay for those who qualify.  The separation certificate... what it is.  Starting in'January, the separatrdhl^ftifidaWw  record of insured employment. Without it, a claim cannot be  processed. Always include it with your application..  Changes for employers  Starting in January, the Department of National Revenue-  Taxation will collect premiums. December, 1971 premiums  must be submitted to the UIC.

PIERRE, MP  COAST-CHILCOTIN  Although it may have gone unnoticed by all except a few curmudgeonly old schoolteachers  and some cranky ex-newspapermen, the English language is in  large extent being replaced by  jargon.  Jargon is not slang.  Slang  is   often  amusing - and  sametilmes witty. It is also us-_  ually understandable, within the  context that it is delivered.  A logger who lays down his  chain saw and picks up an axe  is understood1 when he announces that he is about to operate on  the tree by the Armstrong Method. So is the man on the tide  flats who calls his shovel a Clam  Gun pr the mechanic who drops  his. wrench, grabs a ball-peen  hammer and announces that he  is going to use his Persuader to  Christianize a piece of machinery.  Slang is used for amusement.  Jargon is used ifor conifusdon.  Jargon   words   are   heavy  and  ponderous.  They  are presented  as the language of an elite.  Unlike slang, jargon as considered to be .much too good for  the common people. It is the  code of exclusive classes whose  imemfaers use it to con_mur__cate  with one another while politely  putting down the unwashed mas<-  ses who cannot understand the  words.

SUNSHINE COAST DISPOSAL SERVICES LTD.  TOM AMD RAY  ish during most of my lifetime,  I confess that even today I hesitate to suggest which class of  society relies most heavily upon  it.  Armies make extensive use of  jargon. (In'army jargon, a target is not a target. It is a Preselected Impact Area. Jargon almost always takes longer to  write than English, for ��� which  reason it is used by people to  whom time and money are of  little consequence.)  Government bureaucracies dispense jargon in fountains. Acau  demies, particularly those in economics or sociology, emit it in  geyzers and baptize one another  in thundering torrents. Businessmen and unionists are awed by  the stuff and frequenty hire people to write it for. them: under  their own names, so that they  may be confused by their own  language instead of somebody  elses'.  Might I put forward1 the suggestion that the cause of simple,  C__urch_l_ian English has long  since been lost and that those  who love language as a means  of communication should accept  their defeat gracefully and learn  the jargon.  This is the purpose of this  column.  Here is the St. Pierre Handy  Guide to Jargonshiijp. A. isdimple  formula. A child could use it.  Many do.  ALL THE STAFF  Kenmac Parts (1967) lfd.

Many people criticize the Senate but do  not know very much about it.  In fact, the Senate possesses legal power almost equal to the  House of Commons but in everyday practice the Senate iplays a  minor role compared to the  House of Commons.  The main function of the Senate is to act as a watchdog revising and restraining legi-lation  arid protecting the interest' oif the  provinces and minority groups "in  general. After bills (proposed  statute laws) have had the required -three readings in the  House of Commons they then  must have three readings in the  Senate where amendments can  be made.  The Senate has regard to public opinion and does not act in-  dependeptly'. of it. In 1926, the  Senate rejected an -old -age pension bill but passed" it a short  time later, after the government  with* this proposal in its platform was re-elected. The people  expressed their opinion by reelecting the government and the  Senate responded' by pas sing the  bill.  The Senate is particularly .active with regard to private as  opposed to public bills. The objective of a private bill is to alter or provide law relating to  .some particular locality, or. to  confer rights upon some particular person or group of persons  rather than the nation as a  whole. As a practical matter almost all private bills originate in  the Senate and the public -bills  originate in the House of Commons.

After conviction, the presading  judge must pass sentence. The  sentence imposed must be one  that is authorized by law. The  .Crimina- Code provides for the  following types of sentences or  orders:  1. Recognizance to keep the  peace.  2. Suspended sentence or prxn  batton.  3. Monetary fine.    -  x"4.

Imprisonment for an indef-  iniite term ��� preventive detention ��� this applies only to habitual cniminalis and dangerous sex  ual offemders.  8. Whipping.  ; 9. Capital punishment, hanging  (firing squad, under the%National Defence Act).  10. Miscellaneous penalties  and orders such as comupensar  tion for loss of (property and  driving prohibition.  , For certain offences a certain  penalty must be iirnposed but in  most cases only a* nunimum, is  prescribed in the Criminal Code  and the decision as ,to the degree  or kind of punishment to be imposed is made by the presiding  judge.  What factors may the judge  .consider   in   passing   sentence?  1. The seriousness of the offence.  2. The punishment provided by  law. 3. The deterrent effect on  others. 4. The record of the accused's past convictions, and 5.  any extenuating circt_n_JstaiK.es.  The judge may not consider any  feelings of revenge, anger or  malice, any previous1 record not  proved, any pending charges, or  the iact that the accused pleaded  not guilty.

BOWLING  Now that the halfway mark.in  the bowling season is. here I  must say that in my fifth season  of coaching Bantam and Jiunior  bowlers, I have never had such  an eager and enthusiastic group  of boys and girls as Gilbsons  Juniors. Twelve weeks of bowling and we have already: beaten  a larger group of boys and girls.  There were many sad days for  - me, upon losing some of our  good girl bowlers', but-we are  doing the best we can. It is the  first time I have had the pleasure of having four players in  the honor roll of 300 or more...  We shall continue to travel  and compete against larger  bowling districts stud, as Powell  River, North and West Vai-COtt-  ver and have great hopes of returning victors. Win or lose we  gain experience. |;  To all junior bowlers I wish  them a Merry Chri-stenasi and a  Happy New Year and good-l#kv  for the coming year. ��� Coach  M. J.

At 0755 hours, even ,  before the first bomb was dropped Fluchida sent another message: "Tora! Tora! Tora!" (Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!) to siigniffy  complete surprise against the  enemy had been achieved.  At 2:22 pjn. (E.S.T.) on Dec.  % 1941, in Washington, Japanese  envoys Kurusu (Hisaoi Toake)  and Nomura (Shogo Shiimada)  handed a final peace negotiation  reply to Secretary of State Cor-  deE Hull (George Macready). . .  who. was already aware Pear^  Hafbour had been attac_LedT'>  Hull's fiery and bitter reply,to  the ambassadors was couched iii  'language never before heard in  American diplomacy;.

LOCAL 297, IBPS&PMW  Port Mellon The legend of Gibsons Cl-i_ri^t-p    lights  (By  ED  THOMSON)  For the first time in many  years, the Qiiristmas fairyland  of Lights at the RoJbinson plaice  on School Road will not shine  forth in the still night air.  Dad Robinson, the keeper of  those lights- has passed' along  and 'with has going, he has left  to his six sons a legacy of re-  memtorance in the legend of the  Christmas lights of Gcfosoris.  . The old place is dark and silent but many are those Who re-  memfber the lights on School  Road hill at Christmas'-.time and  .many-are the enquiries Winston  and his brothersi are called to  answer.^   " ''������'-.- 'x.  In family council; the Robinson brothers,' Charlej the eldest,  living north of Pi_nce Rupert;  George and Carman, Vancouver; John and Godfrey at Squamish and Winston in_; Gibsons  came to the decision1 that now  their father-was gone from the  house on the hill, he took with  him the secret of the Eghts. They  felt there was little point in per-  patuatmg-. the dream that died  with their father.  Forljuiiatelly this was not entirely so, for on bur last visit tQ.  Dad in the spring, this frail but  stout-hearted father of six hefty  sons, who was Dad to many a  generation, of those identified  with the local chapter of De-.  Molay, iir-ported* to us the true  secret; of the lights.  Aiqcording to him, it first bap-  (pened almost 60 years ago on a  blizzardy Christmas Eve, 17  miles from Stoughton, Sask.,  where the Robinsons and their  then two sons', Charie and Carman had their farm.  The well below zero weather  threatened blizzard condition's all  that day, : Arctic winds swept  over the prairie and angry storm  clouds _scudd-ed low and threatened to dump their load of snow  under the canopy of a steel-gray  ..sky;   ./;  The Robinsons, particularly  ���the young ones were looking forward to a long promised Christmas .visit  from  Dad's brother  Here's hoping your  Christinas really slums  Peninsula Plumbing LM.

As night'  drew on the wind increased, to  howling gale*-i_orice, driving the  swirliihig snow before it.    ���      ���  It was then the Roibinsons de-.  aided their guests would never  attempt the last leg of their journey on such a night, but inward-  iy Dad knew what a determined  Mian hi's brother coftild be and so,  just in case, he hung a barn lantern on a hiigh* pole over the gate  where it gleamed out'; into* the  angry wight.  The hours ticked by as Mother  Robinson tended her pots and1  pans in readiness. for the' Christ-  ana'S feast on the n_or_Tow. Outside the blizzard howled with increasing force around the; corners of the Robinson _a_im,: then  faintly at first, the sound of  sleigh be-ls. Into the snowdrifted  yard came a cutter, drawn by a  team of exhausted horses, steaan  issuing in clouds from their ribs-  trlils and heaving flanks.  The guests had arrived,. chilled to the bone, but safe and  sound under the protective cov-.  ering of buffalo robes. It had  been quite a scary journey, this  isleighride from Stoughton. No  sooner were they out of town  when the swirling snow blotted  out the trail. They were lost and;  at the mercy of the blizzard!  The horses plunged from drift to  drift and threatened to overturn  the cutter at any moment. Just  as things became crucial, the  team stumlbled over the railway  right c^ way and proceeded  along the tracks which providen-  tiiahly ran within a quarter of a  mile from the farm.  It was at this point, sighted  through the flying snow was the  welcoming light hung high over  the farm gate. Needless to say,  it was a Merry Ohii'Stmas for all.  From that time ���> on, a light  shone out from the Robinson  farm come sundown. Years later when Dad and his growing  family moved to Gibsons, elec~  trJcity took over from the old-  fashioned kerosene lamps and  each night, its brighter light  shone out over the Bay to tell  that all1 was well in the Robinson  household.  Then came the ritual of the  Christmas lights at the house on  School Road, and each year just  before the holiday Da_l and his  boys would create their fairyland with a myriad of flashing  coilored lights set out oh ^he  lawn under the pine trees. As  the years went by, the Robinson  sons, now grown up and away  with families of their own, returned each year and helped put  up the lights of Chrisitmas. It  was a very proud Dad Robinson, well up in;ye^urs, although  ill-health forced him to give  over the active part of the joby  to his sons, he always sat at the  head of the Yuletide board to  give thanks and carve the turkey.  The lights always remained on  until the Twelfth Night, for Dad  too, believed deeply in the tradition'of the mystical' magic of  those lights. This is the story  Dad Robinson told (us just before he passed along last sum-  Coast News, Dec. 22, 1971.     3A  mer.

Hike-happy Hypo  May your holidays be bright  and filled with special joys  TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND CUBITS  A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS  VINCEPREWER  McMYNNREALTY  MR*__ft9tftlN*_N^^  Mrs. Ed Willis and her kid brother, Chester, is the father of  a grown ifamily. The Norths bad  pre-empted two 40-aere lots with'  the idea of logging them but  Mrs. Noilth suffered such an attack of asthma the first night in  the new house that they had to.  move down to sea level the next  day.  -; Of these and many other pioneers Hypo pondered as she tra-,  veiled the overgrown trail'. She  also tried to come to a decasion  as to which reducing diet she  would start the next day. '  The first stop was mlade at  the old Harrison homestead  where Mr. Harrison had carved  a home out of the wilderness arid  alone brought up twdsons. .  The old house, hand hewn  from the bush, still stands in its  large *ciles--*n,g which is partly  fenced and abounds* in grass*,  fruit trees and remnants oif a  garden. Everything has bean  stripped from the house, but the  remalining floor, roof and sides  looked good to Aunt and Hypo  as they th__i_k_u'lly let their roils  slip to the floor and sank down  upon them. Hypo forgot momentarily that the bread and eggs  were wrapped im her roll and  munched happily on sandwich-eis  and much of the fruit from  Aunt's paper bag. On bits of the  bag, too, as the contents were  a bit crushed.  They were not given long to  rest as Jon pointed out that they  were a long way from their dies-  t-inatdon and there was much to  do before dark.  The less said about the ordeal  of the upward climb the better  but much could be said of the relent, ess bullying by the lounger  two as they pitilessly urged  Aunt and Hypo on.  "To thinik;'. Hypo muttered,  "ait on_ tiime we were- iable. to.  drive all' the way up here, and  now we are come to this."  We're choosing this way of  making  a "special trip" to  your house to remember you,  The  of your  Management and Staff  Owned Food Service  you a  MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR  "About mid - a*_t'e___oon they  ducked under a low-hanging hor-  '- nets' nest and came out on the  old Fleming Camp clearing in  which the huge barn s*t__l stands  with part of the roof caved in  and the floor, missing. Here and  ���there foundation logs and posits  remain where blu__khouses once  stpcd, and the rotted floor of'the  main house is still visible in the  tangled weeds.  "Now here," said Hypo, "was  a place. We danced on this  floor." ,.  This the others found hard to  believe but Hypo went on to explain that Fleming's camp, be-  , sides housing Mr. Fleming, was  also; the temporary home of  Mrs. Fleming and their daughters Myhera and Phyllis, and  Mrs. Fleming's sister, Mrs. Ar-  t_ijur and her daughter Lois, and  the big house was the scene of  many a party and the gathering  place of young folk for miles  around.  "Moreover," Hypo went on,.  "the wood shed we are about to  camp in belonged to the Flemings Senior and it went with a  well constructed house which  since has been taken away board  by board."     �����     .      ��� '  The painty passed around the  north side of the barn and hit  the old trail to the elder Flemings' wood shed where Jon had  ' preparations for camp well under way, he having deft the  others a few miles baick and  come on ahead, divested himself  of his load, returned for Aunt's  and again returned to camp.  Of course everyone knows that  camp is aways made near water  but does everyone know that  creeks sometimes dry up or are  diverted? So Hypo, Aunt and  Shele started out, armed with a  'bucket and pots*, t0 find a water  hole. They knew-Roberts Creek  flowed to the easlt of the old  camp but the problem was how  to get down to it. They found a  faintly marked trail leading in  ahv easterly direction and followed it, hoping it would lead them  down the steep gully, which, in  a fashion, it did.  - -*^Bys-���ow,'" Shele said, after  some tiime had elapsed, "we.  must be nearly to Port Mellon.''  "Nonsense," Aunt groaned.  "We can't be more than five  undies from camp, and only one  mile from the creek." And she  gazed lihfiirTStily at the water far  below. "Golly, what a .^uflly"  she murmured. :  By tMs time Hypo was rolling  down the bank, and fetching up  against a tree she called up to  them that this was a reasonably  cleared spot. It wias, too. Nothing grows on a perpendicular  wall.;;The water when they slid  into it was cold and very wet,  and the rocks oiver . which the  creek tumbled and swirled were  slippery, and the wonder is that  thlree receptacles finally reached  camp with even three quarts of  water. .  The next hour was a busy one.  Aunt and Shele brought in wood  while Jon made shelves for food  and put in nails for hanging the  lantern, cups, and so on. Hypo  whittled oifif cedar boughs for  mattrjesses and wondered how  her inner-^spring was getting  along wiithouit her. Later Jon.  was to be heard muttering that  it was the green tips that should  'have been used and not the roots .  and trunks.  The camp fire, on a bed of  stones, was built near the broad  doorway, and after it was lighted it was no time at all before  the shed was. filled with dense  smoke which forced the occupants to evacuate, choking and  gjasping. However, the ever ingenious Jon leaped upon the roof  and propped up some shakes to  let the smoke escape, and in due  time the quartet were busily en-  gagedjin the business of cooking  dinner.  To say that Hypo enjoyed the  job wduld be somewhat short of  the truth. From her height the  camp-fire at her feet seemed far  away,   particularly  as  by then  the   bruises   sustained   by   the  combat with the gully were making themselves fe_t, and her e_-  derlyjjbones were creaking om-  inpusi!: at every painful move.  She wjas not  one to  do much  stoop?hig i. she could help it. At  home Ishe had everything built  to  suit her height, and at one  time when Aunt mounted a chair  ���to  reach  something in  a   cup-  iboard over the sink she excdaim-  (Continued from Page 1A)  ed, "So this is what it looks like  up here!"

Hypo thought yearningly  of them now.  Jon had erected a handy bar  across the fire which later slipped from its mooring when  Shele tripped over the dog near-  (Continued on Page 6A)  i*:*i*i*;*i*i*ii:*i#iil*i��i*;*!*i*:*i*:��:*:*i*  HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASONI  FROM THE MANAGWENT AND STAFF  of the  Peninsula Hotel  :��!��?��f��!#!jfjf��?��!��!*!��f��!��t!*!*!#?��t!��?��ti Hike-happy Hypo  ly pushing Aunt into the soup,  and spiled the precious pail of  iboiling coffee.- Using a box or  two, cordlwood and a small log  for chairs they finally sat down  to a fine dinner of soup, crisp  steak, strong coffee, well  grounded, and smoked bread.  The tin of pears might well Wave  been the best part of the meal  if Jon had not dumped1 the contents on the floor while reaching  for a candle to see what he was  doing. It isn't easy to open cans  with a can opener that has been  left in a drawer several miles  away.  Hypo didn't know if the smoke  would dissiipate  germs   on  the  dishes, but, after watchtog Shele  and Jon wash and put them  away, she hoped it might be so.  Anyway, how could germs find  the way to the cups in that murky, smoky shack?  The party now gathered albout  the fire and Jon brought out the  cards.

Alas, how"|can  looks be' so deceiving? 1  Shele and Jon took the two on  the outside walls thus helping to  keep out ithe"draft. Hypo lowered her aching bulk down.beside  Jon and Aunt put herself nesatly  between her and Shele. George  'saiuggHed between Aunt and Hypo amd was the only; one to sleep  during thlat awful night.  While the four were zipping up  their bags,winding watches, settling their iimibs co_r_fortlaibly  v and making ready for stanfcer,  the bright remarks shot backl  and forth among them. Then a__  was silent. ���-.,���.-,..^.,  Silent is a poor word to jcles-  tordlbe the woodls in the destdlof  ���night.   "Outer   spateeemiu^f jbe/'  like this," Hypo ithougfl-t, '.only  safer." Irlxx-xl^':  The firelight danced fitfully  throwing 'modern art on the  walls, To her left Hypo heard  Aunt iturninig o^ioetly'ySO as not  'to disturb anyone; and she;; too,  turned, as her side had become  paralysed. And landed on one of  the cedar boughs fro_n*whax_h  she had neglected ta'-srt-^Jthe  jagged ends of brarkihes: ;Wi^  remarks suitable tp the oooaaoi?!  muttered beneath , her towialih  she hkristed her bed to tt_c^l%^  Jon's voiice, amused* ^Crame  softly. "What's the matter Moin?  Did you get some stomps too? I  thought you had given thenixail  to me." v  Shele's merry tone�� came next  "She -" doesn't play favorite^"  she said. "I iiave my' M  share." ��� -''5'V ��� ' ,;.  "I don't know what I have,"  iniurmiured Aunt, "but whatever  it is you may have it back."  Even under trying C-Tcuihsitan-  ces Aunt would say may instead  of can.  The night wore on, painfully to  all hut George. Shele, a light  sleeper, would have slept without waking i!f the others had per-  im_tted her to, and Jon also, but-  eaich time a slight noiise occurred to break the eerie quiet outside, Hypo wakened him to tell  him the fire needed more fuel.  Towards _norni_nig nils1 humor  turned quite caustic and Hypo'  wondered if he wasi coming  down with something.  Aunt revolved quietly all niight  except for a brief moment when  she slipped from her bag, groped for her flashlight and silently :  left tihe shed. Her return was so  precfip-tous that she tripped  headlong over George, who " (remained; inert, and when she was  again inside her bed' she found  it to be, briefly, almost eoinr-  fortaible.  By morning Aunt and Hypo  had taken a good inch' off theSr  respective hips and prohably  several years off their lives..  Shele and Jon were refreshed  and happy, Shele merry and lively, Jon gay with humorous  quips. He hadn't come down with  anything after all  While Hypo struggled to get  out of bed, trying to raise herself to a slitting position, first on  one disaFoled hiip and then the  other, Aunt had already acconr-  ���&WZ^^*M^^W^^^tX%  ft-tt-��-��_fc-ft_ftft_tt--*--ti^^  plashed.the deed (she was shorter and, after that night, much  lighter) and thekids, dashing  about as if they had not just  experienced a night ��� of torture,  had breakfast cooked. The won-  derfiul aroma of coffee, frying  bacon and eggs, and burnt toast  was/ an incentive to extra effort,  and soon she joined Aunt at the  wash basin outside the door.  And felt the first drop of rain.  There never was* a descent  made in: Ibetter^to bi  focals diBcarded, weak, ankles  forigotten, avoirdupois and suffering b_ickigh*ored, set the pace  ^ and loped down the mountain  side, bed roll and lantern swinging in the breeze, tak-Sng logs  and fall-eh* : trees in graceful  leaps, at such a rate, of speed  that even Jon had <____tou_ty in.  keeping, iip.  Fearful of being left behind,  and still clutching the bag with  the remains of the grapes and  tomatoes, Aunt somehow managed to keep within sight, and only  Shele lagged, doubled up in what  seemed to Hypo, glanicihg back,  an attack of hysteria or perhaps  stomach pains. She thought fleet-  ingly that maybe it was Shele  whlo was coming down with  something. For that matter they  would all be in bed tomorrow,  with double pneumonia or worse.  lUpion reachinig the vcar they  found it firmly embedded in several inches of mud and water  and it took half an hour or so  to budge it. They had to wring  the water out of tlhear sleeping  bags before they could lift them'  into the car and when that was  done they.-limbed in too, Aunt  doing, so with dtfiaJculty, as she  was using both hands to hold  the fruit, the bag having ripped daimply in several places.  ' 'Are you coming in for coffee or do. you want to go straight  home? "NJon asked Aunt as* they  "neared the crossroad-.  "Just take me home.  PLEASE."
