W.H. TOBEY RETIRES AS PGE SUPERINTENDENT
After eight years as general manager of the Pacific Great Eastern
Railway, Mr. WiIliam H. Tobey is retiring. Now 68, Mr. Tobey feels that he deserves a well earned rest, and hopes to find a little more time to play golf.
Eight years ago upon the death of Robert Wilson, the P.G.E. found
itself in need of a new general manager. Trained as a civil engineer;
Mr. Tobey acquired his first experience in railway work during the construction of the Grand Railway. When the Canadian National took over the Grand Trunk,
Mr. Tobey stayed with the railway and helped to run the railway which he had helped to build. He had become. superintendent of the Smithers division when he left to become general manager of the P.G.E.
Mr. Tobey's chief trouble was one common to us - a limited budget. And the P.G.E. as a railway suffered from the financial limitations. However, Mr. Tobey can be proud of what he has achieved; especially during last year. Old army huts were purchased and brought on scows from Nanaimo. Remodelling them resulted
in new dwellings so that much needed shop assistants could be employed. Bunk houses for engine men and trainmen have been supplied from these, as well as a
new larger laundry. A. new freight shed and freight office is undergoing renovation. Most noticeable of all to townspeople is the new office building and pleasing color scheme which has replaced the drab brown and cream of former years.
At present the Jamieson Construction Company is straightening the worst curves along the line. Cement retaining walls are being built in many places along Anderson and Seton Lakes.
Rolling stock too, has improved greatly during the last years. Four new engines have been purchased to take care of the increased volume of business. For work in the local yards a diesel engine was bought this Spring, with rumors of more engines to come.
The local carshop has done a great deal to add to the efficiency of the P.G.E. Many of the cars were purchased second hand, and to shop carpenters fell the task of remodelling these cars. The re-conditioned sleepers are painted in light colors and upholstered in soft shades. In recent months a coffee bar car has been put into use - a distinct innovation in railway cars.
As business all along the line seems to be booming, it is to be regretted
that Mr. Tobey will no longer be at the herm in the better days to come.
His successor, Mr. J. A. Kennedy took over officially on October 1st. Forty-nine years ago he started as office boy with the C.P.R. and rose to become superintendent of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway. Earlier this year he retired from this post, and is now the new general manager of the P.G.E.
SHOWER HELD FOR ANNE REAMBRAULT
A shower in honor of Anne Reambrault was held at the home of Mrs. J. R. Buchanan.
A large number of friends and well-wishers spent the evening playing bingo; finishing up with a hilarious, contest.
Helping the bride-elect to open her many lovely gifts were her attendants. Miss Olga Sullivan and Miss Patricia Robinson. Hostesses for the enjoyable evening were the two attendants, Mrs. H. Butterworth and Mrs. J. R. Buchanan.
LINDA'S COFFEE SHOP OPENS
Catering entirely to evening trade, Mrs Martineow's coffee shop opened for business on Monday, September 20th.
The remodelled grocery store presents a new and bright aspect to hungry customers. Newly painted and finished within the red checked curtains and red stools give the place a cheerful appearance. The exterior of the building is receiving the first coat of paint it has ever had - a soft yellow which brightens the whole block. Serving only light lunches, Mrs Martinow hopes to appeal to the evening crowds. Her eating place is of special interest to men who work until a late. hour.

PULP MILL WINNERS IN SOFTBALL LEAGUE
The Softball Season for 1948 has now come to a close. Some difficulty has been experienced in playing off the games, due to the bad weather and the fact that many of the players have been working long hours on the modernization progarmme in the Plant. However, in spite of these difficulties, the games were thoroughly enjoyed throughout both by players and spectators, and in the final games the enthusiasm of the partisans of the various teams rose to a high pitch, so that in spite of the cold weather there were good crowds at all the games.
The League was won by the Pulpmill Team.
In the Playoffs, the Pipe Shop eliminated the Pulpmill, and the Beach Plant eliminated the Machine Shop, in the semi-finals (two games out of three in each case).
In the Finals (three games out of five) the scores were as follows:
First Game - Bleach Plant 7, Pipe Shop 5.
Second Game - Pipe Shop 4, Beach Plant 2.
THird Game - Pipe Shop 4, Beach Plant 2.
Third Game - Bleach Plant 9, Pipe Shop 6.
Fourth Game - Pipe Shop 7, Bleach Plant, 0.
Fifth and Final Game - Bleach Plant 6, Pipe Shop 0.
The six players with the highest batting averages in the League for the season are as follows: Freisen (Pulpmill .403; Miller (Bleach Plant) .390; Francis (Bleach Plant) .390; Doug Anderson (Machine Shop) .378; Brunn (Pulpmill) .375; Moretto (Machine Shop) .371.
The batting averages for the Teams are: Pulpmill .268; Bleach Plant .229; Machine Shop .223; Pipe Shop .202.
All teams are to be congratulated on a good clean series of games, and we look forward to the resumption of their activities next Spring.
SQUAMISH TOWING CO. ERECTING QUONSET HUT
The Squamish Towing and Contracting Co. are erecting the town's first Quonset hut.
This building, purchased from the National All Steel Building, is being erected by De Wolfe Construction Co., who are associated with the former firm. Before erection began, a cement wall 8" wide set with anchor bolts formed the "perimeter of the proposed building which is 40 feet wide by 60 feet long. When weather permits a full concrete floor will be laid.
The steel trusses, semicircular when erected, are connected by laminated purloins. The trusses and purloins are interlocked by metal screws, after the metal window frames have been put into position. Corrugated sheet iron is laid over the purloins. The purloins, being laminated, have a space between each peace, which has a wavy champfer that locks the nails driven through the sheet metal into this space. The building has metal shutter-type ventilators in each end and Yukon-type ventilators in the roof. Doors of corrugated sheet steel and windows have steel frames. The entire erection contains not one single piece of wood. The insurance rate on such a metal is practially nil. The completed building has an unobstructed ceiling 20 feet high.
This type of building forming army encampment huts was the only one to withstand the Florida hurricane of September 1947.
As soon as the De Wolfe Construction completes this building, they will proceed to the P.G.E. Shops where they are to erect a multiple Quonset hut, comprising of two sections, 40' by 80' each. The completed structure will form an addition to the car shop.
In future, the Squamish Towing Co. will be the new agents between Squamish and Lillooet for Quonset buildings. They will erect the structures from foundation to finish
anywhere in their district.
Some people can hear a rattle in their cars quicker than one in their heads.
TRINITY CHURCH AT WOODFIBRE WILL BE OPENED ON OCTOBER 17
Over 100 Protestant families in Woodfibre will gather to see the result of their many years of planning and efforts to erect a church home when their beautiful new Trinity Church is officially opened on Sunday, October 17th. The opening service will be conducted by Archibishop Sir Francis Heathercote of the Diocese of New Westminster.
The church which is ideally set on the hilly slope of the community overlooking Howe Sound is one of the finest churches of its kind in Canada.
The building erected on a concrete foundation, is attractively finished with asbestos cedar pair shingles. The interior is beautifully constructed of fir with natural stain. The walls of teh church are finished in gyproc and the ceiling soundproofed with accoustic board.
The architect's plan provides every facility including a large Sunday School room, a Bible Class room and a kitchen for church dinners located in the full-sized concrete basement.
The congregation of Trinity Church represents many Protest-denominations. Reverand C.H. Gibbs of Squamish is minister.
The Woodfibre Community Club is holding a Masquerade Dance on Saturday, October 30th. Further details will be announced later, including details of arrangements made for the hiring of costumes.
BEAR CUB CHASED ON MAIN STREET
A young bear was the cause of a flurry of excitement among children on their way to school one morning recently. Driving one of the Squamish Transfer trucks, Irwin Thorne chased the animal up the main street in front of the P.G.E. houses. The frightened bear attempted to climb the fence into Mr. Stewart's yard. Unable to
do so, it again made a futlle effort to enter Mr. VaIde's yard. Finally the bear entered the woods on the dyke between the drug store and the Frank Scott residence.
SHOWER FOR BRIDE ELECT JOYCE CARSON
Miss Joyce Carson was the guest of honour at a miscellaneous shower held in the Parish Hall on Tuesday, September 14th.
The gift table was prettily decorated with crepe paper, while brilliant fall flowers set off the guest of honour's table to advantage.
Those attending enjoyed playing whist during the evening with Mrs Alitt winning first prize and Mrs Alex Munro the booby prize. While the tables were being arranged for refreshments, Miss Kathleen Cole played a number of selections on the piano. After partaking of a delectable array of sandwiches and cakes, Miss Carson opened her many lovely gifts.
With her at the head table were her mother, Mrs George Carson, the groom's mother, Mrs H. Dawson, the bride-elect's aunt from Toronto, Miss Rose Hemings, her sister Mrs Betty Carson, the groom's sister Miss Sheila Dawson and his sister-in-law, Mrs Borden Dawson.

FRESH MEATS, SMOKED MEATS, SMOKED AND FRESH AND FROZEN FISH
By Elizabeth Richmond
Fotheringhay is a quiet littlee English village near the eastern boundary of the county of North amptonshire. Its long, wide main street is flanked by fields and most of its residents follow agricultural occupations. At the end of this street there is a green mound rising from a meadow which interests every visitor. The mound is all that is left of Fotheringhay Castle, in the banqueting hall of which the tragic Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded in 1587.

LOCAL COUPLE EXCHANGE MARRIAGE VOWS HERE
At a quiet ceremony at noon Saturday, Anne May Reambrault, daughter of Mrs R. Sherrington of Manchester, England, exchanged marriage vows with Angus McRae; eldest son of Mr and Mrs A. McRae of Squamish.
The service took place at the home of Mr and Mrs McRae, the Reverend C. Addyman officiating.
Shimmering pink satin fashioned the bride's lovely gown. Straight lines in front accentuated the fullness in the back and the sleeves were slim and pointed over the wrists. The neckline featured a yoke of pink net with a wide bertha collar of pink satin over the shoulders. The full length veil of pink net fell from a Queen Mary of Scots headdress of matching satin.
Given in marriage by Mr J.R. Buchanan, the bride carried a bouquet of Talisman rouses and white carnations.
Miss Patricia Robinson as maid of honor wore a full skirted gown of gold moire with shirred neckline and puffed sleeves. Miss Olga Sullivan as bridesmaid wore apple green taffeta with full short sleeves and bouffant skirt. Both attendants had matching headdresses similar to that of the bride, and carried bouquets of bronze and yellow chrysanthemums.
Mr Finley McRae was his brother's best man.
The quiet ceremony was immediately followed by a large reception after which Mr and Mrs McRae left by boat for a brief honeymoon.
For travelling the bride wore a blue-grey gabardine suit with dusty pink topcoat of gabardine. Her hat of grey felt featured pink ostrich feathers. Grey gloves with wine accessories completed her costume. Her corsage was of wine gladioli and white baby chrysanthemums.
Upon their return to Squamish, the couple will live in one of McKenzie's apartments.
"Did you get home all right after the part last night?"
"Fine, thanks, except that as I was turning into my street some idiot stepped on my fingers."
It makes an old man feel young when he sees a pretty girl drop her handkerchief... But he feels his age when he stoops to pick it up.

INSPECT ONE AT YARWOOD'S
FIRE SIREN CAUSES FLURRY OF EXCITEMENT
The wailing of the fire siren last week caused a rush to the scene of the smoke. Fortunately, it was not serious.
A barrel of tar, which was being heated for sidewalk repairs in front of the Newport Hotel caught fire near the Public Works shed. Fearing a sudden shift in the wind
which would send the flames towards the building, Sandy Fowler turned in an alarm.
Instead of wetting the hose the fire brigade managed to move the barrel to safe distance from any building, where it was allowed to burn itself out.
A Scout Troop is being formed in Woodfibre under the leadership of Mr A. Greatrex, who is an Eagle Scout, assisted by Mr V. Bidin and Mr J. Sobtka. Branch No. 181 of the Canadian Legion has agreed to sponsor this troop and it is hoped that they will be able to get started at an early date. The boys of Woodfibre are very fortunate in having a Scout Master of Mr Greatrex qualifications, and we all wish him every success in this undertaking.

QUICK THINKING SKIPPER SAVES SHIP FROM SANDBAR
Fast thinking on the part of the skipper of the tug "Gleeful" saved the U.S.S. Capilano from puling up on the sandbar between the dock and the barge ship.
While a strong south wind was blowing, the stern line of the Capilano was loosened before the bow line. The wind immediately swung the stern around. The Gleeful's skipper threw a line to a crew member of the larger boat, and proceeded to pull the Capilano into deeper water.
LOCAL CHURCHES BUSY
On Sunday, October 3rd, St. John's Anglican Church held its Harvest Home Festival. The church was beautifully decorated with seasonal flowers and garden produce.
The Squamish United Church will hold a similar service on October 10th, the decoration of which is to be largely in the hands of the Sunday School pupils.
On October 17th Mr A.E. White will conduct, in the absence of the Reverend Addyman, who will be in Woodfibre for the opening of the new church there.
Both the United and Anglican Sunday Schools are now in full swing. On October 3rd the United Church Sunday Echool held its annual Rally Day service which featured a small stringed orchestra and a mandolin solo by Joanne Feschuk.
On Thursday, September 9, the Squamish Parent Teacher Association held its first meeting of the year.
A cordial welcome was extended to the three new members of the staff, but unfortunately only Mr. Hayes the new principal and honorary president of the P.T.A. was present.
Mr. Hayes reported that the school building is literally bursting at the seams. For this reason, the staff is advocating the erection of a new Junior-Senior High School to house Grades 7-12. As present classrooms are overcrowded, two additional teachers have been requested.
It was decided to hold a membership drive, November 1st to be the closing date. The class having the largest membership of parents by that date is to receive a magazine
subscription. Another picture, suitable for younger children, is to be purchased as a monthly attendance prize.
Light refreshments were served to give parents and teachers an excellent opportunity to mix.
At the next meeting, to be held Thursday, October 7, the books purchased by the P.T.A. for the school library will be on display.
CANADIAN FOREIGN TRADE BREAKS RECORD
Canadian foreign trade reached record proportions during ths first half of 1948, with total merchandising imports and exports amounting to $2,671 million, an increase of $85 million over the corresponding period of 1947. Trading conditions in June, however, showed a drop in wheat and flour shipments to the United Kingdom, following last year's short crop.

Mr. Cleveland Dawson was best man; and Mr. Richard Dawson and Mr. Bruce Carson were ushers.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white satin with a net overskirt and a bustle effect in the back. Her full length-veil fell ffom a headdress
of net. She carried a bouquet of red roses and baby chrysanthemums.
The maid of honor, Miss Ione Magee, wore mauve embossed satin with a net overskirt and carried carnations in two shades of pink.
The two bridesmaids were attired in moire; Miss Sheila Dawson, sister of the groom, wearing yellow, and Miss Betty Carson, sister of the bride, wearing green. Both

matching Dutch cap. She carried an old fashioned nosegay of rosebuds.
Mrs R. Cole played the wedding music, and Miss Kathleen Cole sang, "I'll Walk Beside You" during the signing of the register.
Following the ceremony a reception was held at the Parish Hall, where Mr. E. Carson proposed a toast to the bride.
For their brief honeymoon, the bride wore a dress of turquoise gabardine with matching wool topcoat and black accessories.
Members of the fair sex in Squamish looked hopefully at signs of activity around the vacant beauty parlor. Their hopes were fulfilled on September 22nd, when Mrs. Gladys Parks opened for business.
The old saying about never missing a thing until it is lost proved true in the case of the local hairdresser. Mrs J. Murnern opened for business where the Imperial Oil Station now stands, the ladieS of Squamish have had the services of a professional hairdresser; until Mrs. McIntyre left the business early in July of this year.
Ladies whose locks have become long and unruly are keeping Mrs Parks busy. For 21 years she has operated hairdressing parlors on Vancouver Island in Port Alberni, Courtenay and Ladysmith.
In addition to hairdressing, Mrs Parks carries a stock of notion and ladies ready-to-wear.

SOFTBALL CUP CHANGES HANDS
After spending a year with the Hardwoods, the softball cup donated by the B.P.O.E. Lodge has changed hands and is now in possession of the Squamish Legion.
The winning team had to work hard to obtain the cup, as the Hardwoods team led the Softball League steadily during the whole season.
In the playoffs, the Legion and the Hardwoods each won two games, so teh last game was a real battle, with the Legion winning. unfortunately for the Hardwoods, their pitcher was handicapped by two injured ribs.
Figures compiled at army headquarters reveal that 475 Chinese-Canadians, 165 Japanese-Canadians and 3,090 Indians served with the Canadian Army during the Second World War. The majority served overseas.

HOSPITAL PLAN EXPLAINED
Premium payments under the government's hospital insurance plan will begin shortly, and for approximately 80% of the population hospital insurance will be a new experience. The remaining 20% are now covered by other plans.
Explaining why the six month's prepayment, Dr. J.M. Hershey said:
Hospital insurance cards, proof of payment and eligibility, will be good for the first six months of 1949, and cannot be issued until one half-year's premium has been paid.
Prepayment is an important factor in guaranteeing general participation and is the best way of insuring continuation of the present low premiums.
Under the Hospital Insurance Act, payments to hospitals can be made only on account of persons who have actually paid premiums. Eligibility, therefore, must be established for over a million people by January 1.
The insurance card provides proof that a person has paid his premium and guarantees payment of the hospital bill by the Hospital Insurance Fund.
Prepayment protects the individual and his dependents during periods of unemployment when it may be difficult to pay premiums on the due date.
As to the instalment method, Dr. Hershey said this was for the convenience of those who wish to pay by this way, rather than having to make one payment.
After the three payments have been made by early December, covering a six-month period, a hospital insurance card will be issued entitling the contributor and his dependents to benefit up to June 30, 1949.

FALL FAIR ODDITIES
In reviewing the prizes at the Fall Fair a number of interesting items came to light.
Mrs Ross Barr entered in only seven classes and succeeded in winning first prize for each of her entries.
Ten year old Donna Sande led the children's awards to the extent of winning a special award for a crocheted doily which had to be entered in the adult's class as there was none for children.
Mrs Axen entered a sweater made of wool which she had spun herself, then did her own job of dying and finally knitted the garment.
For such garments, a handicraft class would be the ideal solution.
Mrs Henry Smith and her daughter, Mrs Claude Hartnell left on September 20 for Swan River, Manitoba where they will spend a month with Mrs A.M. Peyton, also arriving from England in 1901, Mrs Smith spent 13 years in Swan River. Now, after an absence of 25 years, she plans to renew old friendships.
MERCY FLIGHT FOR LOCAL CHILD
Betty Dent, nine year old daughter of Mr and Mrs L.F. Dent was flown to Vancouver by the Vancouver U-Fly Service on September 28th. The same evening she underwent an operation for appendicitis. She is recovering nicely and will soon be home again.
WOMEN'S AUXILIARY TO THE LEGION
At theri recent meeting the Women's Auxiliary to the Legion decided to launch a drive for foodstuffs for needy veterans overseas. It is hoped that the food thus collected will reach the veterans in time for Christmas. So dig in everyone, let's all donate a bit which means little to us but much to them, and make sure your donation is suitable for overseas shipping.
WAR VETERANS UNDER BC HOSPITAL PLAN
The position of war veterans under the B.C. Government Hospital Insurance Plan has been clarified.
All veterans must register. Only those who are completely covered by DVA under all circumstances will be exempt. There are only two classes of such veterans.
- DVA students, so long as they are still in training.
- Veterans in receipt of War Veteran's Allowance.
The dependents of these two categeries are not covered by DVA and, therefore, a premium must be paid on their behalf. The premium for a wife will be $15 per annum. For a wife and one dependent $24 per annum, and for more than one dependent, $36 per annum.
Soot should not be left lying in the furnace during the summer a it will absorb moisture from the air and rust the interior.

SQUAMISH POWER TO BE SUPPLIED BY B.C. ELECTRIC
The recently opened Bridge River Power Development means more to Squamish than an endless row of towers. For some time Hieme and Rumble vehicles and workmen have been a common sight. A great deal of the material used in the project was transported to Bridge River by the P.G.E.
With the local hydro electric plant and steam plant at the shops both taxed to their utmost, envious eyes have looked upon the miles of wires which were to carry power to Vancouver.
Arrangements have now been made with the B.C. Electric to run a 2208 volt line from the substation at Britannia; Hume and Rumble to begin construction on the line very shortly.
While the B.C. Electric will take over the task of supplying Squamish with light and power, the P.G.E. will retain their auxiliary steam plant at the shops.
WOODFIBRE PHYSICIAN ADDRESSES P-TA
The guest speaker at the October Meeting of the Woodfibre P.T.A. was Dr. Boyce, who gave a most interesting address on "Mental Health", discussing its significance in relation to the Home and the Child.
The P.T.A. now has thirty-nine members on its register, and it is hoped that those were at the meeting but are not yet members will join.
The next meeting will be on November 9th at 8 p.m. This will be "Fathers' Night," and all fathers are cordially invited to be present. The Guest Speaker will be Mr R. Joes, whowill talk on the work of the Wolf Cubs and the Boy Scouts.
NEW POOL ROOM
Between the barber shop and the telegraph office a new building is under construction. When completed Mr. Mitchell will move his barber shop and pool tables into the new edifice. The new building is owned by Mr. J. Jacobsen and the work of construction is in charge of Mr F.B. Scott.
Just across the street the new taxi stand is rapidly nearing completion and will soon be open for business
TRINITY CHURCH DEDICATED BY ARCHDEACON THOMPSON
Woodfibre - A significant milestone in the history of Woodfibre was passed on the occasion of the Dedication of Trinity Church which took place on October 17th with the Church full to capacity.
Bishop Heathcote being unable to attend, due to a fractured ankle, the service was conducted by teh Venerable J. Thompson, Archdeacon of Vancouver, assisted by the Reverend Gibbs of this Parish. Archdeacon Thompson preached an impressive sermon on the significance of the name "Trinity" Church.
Mrs Eckersley sang the Anthem "Bless this House", and Mrs MacGregor officiated at the Organ.
Among those present were the Reverend Addyman of Squamish and Mr C. Bentall, President of the Dominion Construction Company whose generosity contributed so much to the building of the Church.
All those concerned in the design and construction of Trinity Church are to be sincrely congratulated on their achievement. It looked beautiful, the finishing touch being the flowers on the Altar, which were donated by Mr and Mrs P. Eckersley and Mr and Mrs Tommy Lee.
After the service, a short social was held in the basement and refreshments were served, thus bringing to a close a very happy occasion.
TENNIS TOURNAMENT WINNERS TO RECEIVE CUPS
Woodfibre - the Woodfibre Tennis Tournament was finally completed on October 13th. The matches had to be spread over several weeks due to bad weather conditions, and for a while it looked as if the 1948 Tournament might be played off in 1949. However, it is very satisfactory to be able to report that, by taking advantage of every possible opportunity, the games were eventually completed without a single match being "scratched". The Tournament Committee very much appreciated the interest shown by the (Continued on Page 2.)
FURTHER DISCUSSIONS ON HOSPITAL PLANS
Periodically the feasibility of having a local hospital comes under consideration. This is one of those times.
Some four or five years ago the project was discussed. At that time our population was much smaller, and it was felt that the community could not support such an undertaking.
Last Spring the Women's Auxiliary to the Legion entered into some correspondence in regard to a hospital. Dr. H.A. McDonald was retiring from practice and a new doctor seemed to be unattainable. Any community attempting to obtain a medical practitioner is almost certain to be disapointed unless there is a local hospital. Squamish was very fortunate in securing the services of Dr. L.C. Kindree.
Before the Women's Auxiliary had gone very far in their plans, the Board of Trade called an open meeting last June to discuss the question of a local hospital. Two members of the Workmen's Compensation Board, Messrs. Thompand Williams had asked that this meeting be called. They gave the audience to understand that the W.C.B. would like very much to see a hospital here, as no such facilities were available between Shalalth, where the B.C. Electric operates a private emergency hospital, and Vancouver. Should Squamish fall to supply such a service here, the Workmen's Compensation Board planned to build a first aid station here from frunds collected from industries along the P.G.E. On the other hand, such a sum would be contributed towards the building of a local hospital, should the community decide to go ahead with the project. Summer came with a recess for all organizations and nothing further was done.
Recently the Workmen's Compensation Board asked for an answer. Sponsored by the Auxiliary a meeting of executives of local organizations was held in the dining room of the P.G.E. Hall on October 9th, in order to obtain various opinions on the matter. Mr. J. Castle was elected chairman of the gathering.
Mrs. R.R. McCormack reported on the result of inquiries made into various hospital plans. These ranged from a medical centre with three beds and open only during the day, to a $50,000 building, fully staffed and costing $2,000 a month to operate. Dr. L.C. Kindree gave as his opinion that a medical centre was little better than the present set-up while the other extreme was beyond the medical needs of Squamish as well as being beyond its financial ability to support.

One of the chief duties of the temporarily appointed commissioners is the preparation of a voter's list for the election of three commissioners on the third Thursday in December. They are now drawing up this list which must be posted in a public place by November 5th. On November 15th a Court of Revision will be held in the Parish Hall from 10 to 12 a.m. for the purpose of correcting errors or omissions on the voters' list. The name of ever ratepayer in the incorporated village should be on the list.

BOWLING ALLEY PROPOSED FOR WOODFIBRE
Plans for the proposed Bowling Alley at Woodfibre were discussed at the Quarterly General Meeting of the Community Club, which was held on October 26th. It was reported that the Company ahd agreed to erect the building, the cost of equipping it being the responsibility of the Community Club. The Management Committee are at present investigating the cost of this equipment, and will later call an extra-ordinary General Meeting to make their recommendations in connection with raising the additional funds required. In the meantime, the Committee has authority to proceed with the ordering of the equipment.

W. ARNOLD HONORED AT FAREWELL BANQUET
Woodfibre - A farewell banquet for Mr W. Arnold, who has been Chief Engineer at Woodfibre for many years, was held in No. 1 Cookhouse on October 20th, with fifty-two guests present.
Mr E.P. Brennan welcomed Mr Arnold to the banquet, and expressed the best wishes of all present for hsi future. He presented Mr Arnold with a "Lazy-Boy" Chair from the Old Timers of Woodfibre.
Mr Collicutt spoke for the Boiler House Staff, and presented a mantel radio to Mr Arnold on behalf of his colleagues.
Mr P.V. Parker then proposed a toast to the guest of honour, which was duly honoured.
Mr Arnold first came to Woodfibre on February 29th, 1916. He came out from Ireland in 1905 to homestead in Alberta, where he remained until 1912. He had served his apprenticeship in Belfast with Fairbairn Lawson Coombe Barber & Coombe, and before he left Ireland he had already had many experiences in connection with his work. He turned up the first automatic hackling machine (the purpose of which is the automatic combing of flax) ever to be made, and fitted the original automatic knotter, the design of which was worked out to tie a bow knot on linen thread skeins, and was embodied in the International Harvester Binder.
Since 1916 Mr Arnold has worked almost continuously at Woodfibre; he was in Vancouver on munitions for three years from 1917-1920 and was at Port Alice as Shift Engineer for some months in 1921, but apart from these breaks has remained here until his retirement this month, becoming Chief Engineer in 1921.
The following is all that it is necessary to say concerning his work here. Up to the time when (Continued on page 5)

playsers in the last few matches who played their games in weather which felt more suitable for skiing and often in the dusk.
The finals of the various events were as follows:
Men's Singles - V. Bidin deafeated W. Whalen (6-4 6-4)
Ladies Singles - Mrs Marlatt defeated Mrs Becket (9-7 5-7 6-4)
Men's Doubles - V. Bidin and W. Wickman defeated E. Hartling and A. Lemieux (6-4 6-4)
Ladies' Doubles - Mrs Boyce and Mrs Marlat defeated Mrs Becket and Miss Lilwall (6-2 6-4)
Mixed Doubles - F. Symington and Mrs Boyce defeated W. Wickman and Miss Watt (6-2 4-6 7-5).
Throughout the Tournament commencing in the preliminary rounds, there were many excellent matches, from the point of view of both the players and the spectators. One deserving special mention was the semi-final in the Men’s Singles between V. Bidin and
F. Symington, which was won by V. Bidin with a score of 4-6 7-5 7-5. It was unfortunate that this match had to be played off on a weekday afternoon, as it deserved a larger "gallery" than was possible in the circumstances. So close was the play that F. Symington, who eventually lost the match was at one stage for three points within “match point” of winning.
Of the other many closely-contested matches which took place during the Tournament, two that remain in my mind are the finals of the Ladies’ Singles and the
match in the early stages between A. Wood and E. Hartling.
The interest shown in this tournament was very gratifying to the organizers, and it is intended that the presentation of the cups to the winners will be arranged at an
early date. It is hoped that this Tournament will become an annual event, and it is especially hoped that more of our lady players “come out of hiding” for the Tournament in 1949!

QUIET LOCAL WEDDING
On Thursday morning, October 28, in St. John's Anglican Church, Dorothy Jeffrey exchanged vows with Harold Lipsey before Reverend C. H. Gibbs.
Given in marriage by Mr. A. Cooper, the bride wore a full skirted gown of white satin with long sleeves coming to points over the wrists. Her full length veil of fine white fell from a halo of pleated net. Her bouquet was up of calla lilies and white chrysanthemums.
Mrs J. Mobes of Vernon was the sole attendant. Her gown of figured pink taffeta featured a peplum which draped itself into a bustle at the back. Matching flowers formed a coronet for her hair. Pink and white roses made up her bouquet.
The groom was supported by his brother Emest Lipsey.
Following the ceremony a reception for relatives and immediate friends was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Irwin Thorne. The toast to the bride was proposed by
Following the reception Mr. and Mrs. Lipsey left on an island honeymoon. For travelling the bride donned a powder blue suit with tan topcoat and navy accessories.

SCHOLARSHIP FOR SQUAMISH
Many times a worthy Grade XII student is unable to carry on scholastic work because of a lack of finances. The P.T.A. has hopes of partially overcoming this handicap by a scholarship.
This award of $150 will be presented to a Grade XI1 student. A committee willetraw up the conditions of the award but it is expected to be given to the best all around student. As in the Rhodes scholarship, scholastic work will be the most important but other factors, such as year round work, sports and leadership qualities will all be taken into consideration.
The P.T.A. is merely sponsoring this plan. They hope to make an appeal to orgnizations and interested individuals for contribution towards this fund. Should they
fall short of their objective, they will raise the balance themelves. Needless to say the boy or girl winning the award must use it for further studies at the Unviersity, in nursing, towards teaching or at any academic institution.
In supporting this move, you may be furthering the ambitions of your own child.
FIRE DESTROYS BUNKHOUSE
At 8:30 last Tuesday evening, the fire siren blew again. However, Tommy Fowler knew just how to push the button properly. Soon the streets were filled as scores of
people headed for the lower town. A building owned by Ernie Naul of Kodiak Logging Co. and used as a bunkhbuse was gutted by the blaze. According to R. Rutledge and C. Jensen, the fire started in the upper story and was well started before they realized their danger. Unable to save any of their personal belongings the men escaped from the burning building.
Within three minutes of the alarm the volunteer fire brigade under H. A. Munro was at the scene of the blaze. However, the fire had such a hold on the building, that only a charred shell remained.
Adjoining buildings were a major concern of the fire department.
Incidentally, the fire alarm disrupted the Senior Badminton Club and "wrecked" the Pro-Rec meeting.
RURAL HOUSING BULLETINS
The Rural Housing Advisory Committee for British Columbia was formed in 1947 in order to give rural travellers all possible assistance in the field of farm homes and buildings.
A simple survey was conducted with the aid of the agricultural representatives in the various communities to supply some indication of the greatest building problems confronting the homebuilder and remodeller.
After careful consideration of the survey results, it was decided to publish a series of informative bulletins, all dealing with the various aspects of the rural home. Each bulletin was to be confined to one specific problem and was to be amply illustrated with diagrans and sketches.
FARM HOME REPAIRS
The first of these, No. 101, "Repairs To The Farm Home", was published in the Spring of 1948. Every phase of building repair is discussed in detail, and the many illustrations and diagrams are simple and to the point.

OLDEST BUILDING IN SQUAMISH NOW BEING DEMOLISHED
Old timers are assailed with a feeling of nostalgia as they watch the demolition of the building across the tracks from the Del-Mar Cafe.
This structure commonly known as the "old laundry" was erected in 1891 by William Mashiter who came here a year earlier to take charge of the Magee Ranch. For twelve years this was the only building in the district. At that time the
whole area now in the incorporated village was an immense hayfield. Scows which came here for hay, brought in lumber and building supplies for the erection of the combination store and waiting room. Used as a stopping place by people going to and from Brackendale, the building had a store and waiting room on- the main floor and eight room upstairs.
In 1903 David Galbraith bought out Mc Mashiter. The new owner then built a hotel at the present approach to the wharf. That building is, now the property of
The old building was rented to various individuals in different walks of life. At one time it was occupied by hog raisers; then a Montenegrin caqied on' a bootlegging
business until a just fear of the law caused him to depart hurriedly. For twelve years it was used as a Chinese laundry. Twice saved from destruction by the fire brigade it last rented by Ralph Caldwell, who planned to use it for a sheet metal shop.
Now the building is slowly being razed by Mr. Percy Lowe. All usable material is being moved to the lot formerly owned by Stan Johnson where Mr. Lowe hopes to create a Gospel Mission with the remains of the old structure.

FAREWELL FOR WILLIAM H. TOBEY
On the evening of Saturday October 9, a large crowd of P.G.E. employees and their friends gathered at the P.G.E. Hall to honour Mr. W. H. Tobey upon his retirement as general manager of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway. The occasion also served as a wholehearted welcome to his successor, Mr. J. A. Kennedy.
Excellent dance music was provided by an orchestra made up of Mrs. L. Gorsuch on the violin. Ian Hamilton on the saxophone, Jerry Lilge on the guitar, Bert Somerskill on the accordion and Miss Kay Bowyer of Vancouver at the piano, with Mr. Bill Burd doing the vocalising.
During the evening, Mr. W. A. Stewart, superintendent of the P.G.E., called upon Mr. T. Clarke. On behalf of the P.G.E. Employees Association, Mr. Clark as president, presented Mr. Tobey with a beautiful leather wallet plus a check made up of donations from employees of the railway all along the line.
In thanking all his fellow workers, Mr. Tobey expressed his deep appreciation of the close co-operation accorded him by each and every employee.
Unable to realize all his hopes because of lack of funds, war, material shortages and labor troubles, he stressed the fact that the P.G.E. had come a long way in the past eight years. Long a political foot ball, and unable to pay its own operating cost, it is now a vital transportation link which can no longer be overlooked. In closing he extended best wishes for a successful future to the new superintendent, Mr. W. A. Stewart and the new general manager, Mr. J. Kennedy.
Mr. Stewart then introduced Mr. Kennedy to the assembled guests. The new general manager warned his predecessor against too deep a retirement as he felt sure that he would often call upon Mr. Tobey for information and assistance. He asked that every employee on the railroad co-operate with him to the best of his ability in order that Mr. Tobey's ambitious programme might be carried out. Mr. Kennedy emphasized the importance of the too-often-overlooked section men, who are responsible for the maintenance of the track. "Any railroad," said Mr. Kennedy "is only as good as its roadbed."
Following is a hearty round of applause, Mr. Burd sang two selections, "The Rose of Tralee" and "The Old Refrain," accompanied by Mrs. Gorsuch and Miss Bowyer. To satisfy the crowd, he obliged them with an encore.
Refreshments were served in the dining room where the tables had been arranged in the shape of a U. At the head sat Mr. W. Tobey, Mr. and Mrs. J. Kennedy and Mr. and Mrs. W. Stewart. Brightly colored autumn flowers gave the tables a festive air.
Arrangements for the supper were in the hands of a group of ladies whose husbands are railway employees. Among them were Mrs. J. Gibson, Mrs. Todd, Mrs. I. Nichol, Mrs. Lutes, Mrs. A. Moon, Mrs. W. Stewart and Mrs. J. Leach.
A large number of out-of-town employees attended the dance; former superintendent; Mr. and among them being Mr. J. A. Quick, Mrs. A. Anthony, Mr. and Mrs. S. Malm, Mr. and Mrs. Heiliger, Mr. and Mrs. McNeill, Mr. S. Good, Mrs. W. A. Halliday and Mr. Vaughn Paul.
NEW READY-TO-WEAR SHOP
Changes have taken place at the Del-Mar Cafe. The front half of the dining-room section of the restaurant, has been remodelled and partitioned off as a separate establishment.
In this space, Mr. Havey Hurren has stocked up with a complete line of men's wear. He also plans to carry a complete line of ladies ready-to-wear. The first shipment of ladies wear is expected to be here by November 15. These articles of wearing apparel are the product of a well-known Montreal manufacturer.
In addition to ready-to-wear, Mr. Hurren is the local agent for The House of Stone. Through him you may obtain a ladies or man's fitted, made-to-measure suit; as well as made-to-order topcoats for ladies; all made by this well-known firm.

COMMUNITY CLUB HOLDS SECOND WHIST DRIVE
The Woodfibre Community Club held the second of a series of four Whist Drives on October 20th, with twenty tables playing.
The winners were as follows:
Ladies' First Prize - Mrs. Hutton (149)
Men's First Prize - C. Malm (150)
Ladies' Second Prize - Mrs. Monoghan and Mrs. Chadwick (148)
Men's Second Prize - O. Peace (149)
Ladies' Booby Prize - Mrs. Williams (103)
Men's Booby Prize - Mr. B. Hebert (94)
While refreshments were being served, a game of "Truth and Consquences" was played. Cards were cut to decide on the victims with the following results:
Mrs Chadwick, Mrs Inglis, C. Woolway and R. Costanza, being unable to state the date of the Battle of Hastings, had to pick up marbles with their toes; Mrs Inglis proved most proficient at this and won the prize.
Mrs Plecas and Mrs Rae failed to name the colours of the rainbow and were instructed to break balloons with rolling pins. Mrs Rae won.
E. Chadwick, A. Moretto, R. Rossignol and M. Gibilov had to wash the dishes, as they did not know the date of Confederation.
Mr W. N. Parkin was asked to give the meaning of the initials S.S. and M.A.T. As he could not answer he was taken by truck to fetch Mr W. Arnold, who was being entertained at a farewell party elsewhere. On Mr Arnold's arrival, "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" was sung in his honour.
V. Bidin and Mrs Lea could not compute how many miles per hour is the equivalent of 88 ft. per minute, so they did some competitive floor sweeping, at which V. Bidin came out top.
Mrs Eckersley, J. Lebrun and L. Levers failed on a nursery rhume quiz, and had to guess the contents of each others' pockets, Mrs Eckersley proving the best guesser.
The general question "What are the two signatures on a one dollar bill," did not get an answer. Presumably nobody present had ever kept one long enough to have the opportunity to find out.
There will be two more of these Drives before the end of the year when further fun and games will be enjoyed - and don't forget the grand Aggregate Prize at the end of the series.
BOARD OF TRADE FAVORS SALE OF P.G.E.
The regular monthly meeting of the Squamish and Howe Sound District Board of Trade was held Wednesday, November 3, 1948, in the dining-room of the P.G.E. Hall with twenty-six members present.
There was some discussion on endeavoring to have the harbor made more sightly by having old pilings and other debris removed; and thus beautifying the approach to the Squamish docks.
The seriousness of the recent epidemic of false fire alarms was raised, and it was the general feeling of the members that something should be done to overcome this; before a serious mishap is brought about by these pranks, which were no doubt caused by some thoughtless individuals.
The Board passed the following resolution:
Whereas the Board has been made aware that certain powerful American interests are anxious to acquire the Pacific Great Eastern Railway and have approached the Government with this in view;
And whereas it appears that these interests not only have a keen appreciation of the value of the Railway as an integral part in the broad scheme of communications for the defense of the entire continent, but as well as fully cognizant of the vast resources tributary to the Railway, and propose a definite program for their development;
And whereas it is our belief that sale to these interests would redound to the benefit of the whole territory served by the P.G.E.;
Now therefore, we, the members of the Squamish and Howe Sound District Board of Trade in meeting assembled do hereby record our emphatic approval of any move making for the sale of the Railway to private interests on reasonable terms, and we respectfully urge the Provincial Government to act accordingly.
Prince Phillip, in addition to being the king's son-in-law, is also his aide-de-camp.
HALLOWE'EN MARKED BY VANDALISM
Again Hallowe'en has come and gone!
This year's celebration was marked by an abundance of fire crackers, the first real display in some years. The usual number of small goblins and witches presented themselves at doors for treats. All this is fun.
But why must the occasion be marred by some who seem to obtain sadistic enjoyment out of vandalism; Removing gates is one thing, but destroying them another. Ties and rails across roads could easily cause a serious traffic accident. And why upset a truck letting the oil run out of the transmission and the acid out of the batteries. And if there's spare paint around, why not use it on an unpainted fence, instead of putting it on one that is an asset to our community?
As for the fire sirens! Some day we may have a real blaze and it's doubtful if anyone will turn out. Just the old story of the boy and the wolf.
Let's keep these things in mind and attempt to find a remedy before another year rolls around.
No one will ever be able to convince Mr Zack or Sonnie Rennie that there's nothing in this story about 13 being unlucky.
On October 13th Mr Zack and his son Fred were going about their business of felling trees for the Squamish Towing Co. with a power saw. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon they cut down a tree against which a small maple was leaning. The maple swayed to and fro, the top finally breaking off. It hit Mr Zack on the head and across his shoulder, throwing him face down upon a log well covered with knots which cut his face badly.
Brought to Squamish on a stretcher, Mr Zack was treated by Dr L.C. Kindree. Besides a badly bruised shoulder and forearm, the cut on Mr Zack's nose needed seven stitches and that on his chin five stitches. The loss of two lower teeth may also be charged to that maple tree.
On the same day Sonnie Rennie lost a piece of an index finger while loading logs on his truck.
Both men are very thankful that it wasn't Friday as well as the 13th.
LOCAL STORM DAMAGES SQUAMISH RESIDENCE
Accustomed to winds, the people of Squamish usually sleep soundly through a storm. Recently, however, a few people had cause to waken.
A fair sized alder tree at the corner of Carl Smith's house, its roots undermined by the waters of the slough fell a victim to a high wind. Being a tree of discernment it fell very carefully across the slough, narrowly missing Smith's house.
A big, dead spruce tree, standing in Les Moule's yard was not nearly as considerate. Falling before the strong south wind, it hit the southeast corner of Fred Julian's new house, missing by a couple of feet, the bed in which Mr and Mrs Riley were sleeping. Needless to say, they were rudely awakened.
Sometime previously, Mr Moule and Mr Julian had decided to cut that tree down before it did any damage. Mother Nature, took matters into her own hands but believe me, it won't happen again. The other Sunday, five sound trees in the vicinity were cut down peacefully. Now let the wind blow!
(Continued from Page One)
the new Boiler House went into operation this summer, Mr Arnold had under his charge the oldest battery of boilers in operation in British Columbia - and they were giving good service up to the last day.
During his "off duty" hours Mr Arnold has, since 1920, made a hobby of the construction of violins, and he has been most successful in this field.
One of his instruments is played by R. Hislop and by Sonny Richardson; the latter can be heard on Tuesday nights from 7:15 to 8:00 p.m. over Station CJOR in the programme "Harmony House".
Mr and Mrs Arnold are retiring to live in Vancouver where he has prepared for himself a workshop where he can continue his work on his "Fiddles", and needless to say, everyone in Woodfibre wishes them all health, happiness, and success in their new home.
Mr W. N. Parkin, who has been Assistant Chief Engineer for many years, is taking Mr Arnold's place as Chief Engineer.
(Continued from Page 1)
Accordingly, a committee was appointed to look further into this matter; paying special attention to available grants, a hospital suited to the community's needs and to consider local ability to build and keep up such a hospital. Once the committee has obtained all the information possible, a public meeting will be called to discuss the matter further, and to obtain the opinion and wishes of the community as a whole.
Among those on the committee of investigation are: J. Castle, S.R. Bishop, Dr Wilkinson, Dr Kindree, Mrs R. McCormack, Mr S. Clarke, Mrs S. Clarke, Mrs A. McRae, Mr C. Marchant, Mr W. Gedge, Mr G. R. Dent and Mr A. Hendrickson.
Watch for the date of the community meeting. It is to be hoped that every interested citizen will make a point of being present.
"Of the original inhabitants (of Newfoundland), a sturdy brown race of peaceful and clever little people, called Beothucks, perhaps the less said the better. They were wilfully destroyed, being hunted down like wild animals," - Encyclopedia Britannica.
If you're a man of few words, you won't have to take so many of them back.

Mrs. B. Valde reported that plans had been made to add two stalls to the bicycle shed to keep pace with the growth of the school attendance. The approach to the shed will be gravelled before the rainy season.
The P.T.A. will sponsor a scholarship of $150 to be awarded to the most deserving student in Grade XII for further education.
A report of the recent hospital meeting was heard and the organization as a whole pledged its whole hearted support to the Hospital Committee.
Plans were made for a sale of renovated toys. Anyone having slightly broken or disused toys is asked to take them to Mrs Stan Clarke, or to Mrs E. Judd, if living in Brackendale.
Both the radio and the phonograph at the school are showing the scars of old age after a very busy life. Mr. Hayes will ask the School Board to obtain a new radio gramophone through the Board of Education; the P.T.A. to bear the cost.
In order to offset expenses, a committee was chosen to consider ways and means of raising money.
Mr. Hayes then addressed the meeting choosing "The Gilded Cage" as his topic. He dealt with the varioud problems confronting a guidance teacher. This new department deals wth instruction in sex, alcoholics, manners, and is designed
to assist pupils in their choice of a vocation. The aim of the course is to help each student to develop along individual lines to the best of his ability.

P.T.A. HOLDS PARTY
Last Friday in the Parish Hall, the Squamish P.T.A. sponsored a very successful party.
The evening began with a few games of Bingo, then a few tables of Whist, after which everyone was ready for eats. A rousing singsong followed the refreshments, the affair endlng with a small dance.
The P.T.A. quilt admired by so many whlle on display, will help to keep Russell Lamport warm this winter. The lucky guy!
The prizes for whist went to Mrs. E. Aldridge and Mrs. Alex Munro for high scores, while Mrs. Sandd and Mr. Ken Richardson won the booby prizes.
Mr. Somerskill kindly played the piano for the singsong and dance.
The Women's Auxiliary to the Squamish Branch ot the Canadian Legion; No. 115, was held in the dining-room of the P.G.E. Hall on Tuesday, October' 12, 1948, with twenty-five members present.
The followiing members were initiated: Mesdames M. Lamport, M. M. Harrison, F. Helen Hohn, D. M. Harding, L. I. Sullivan, V. P. Hinde, E. I. McNamee, I. M. Nichols,

A Tag Day for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind will be held shortly, with the aid of the High School Students; and it is hoped that this appeal will alsc
receive your wholehearted support.
Anyone having old magazines, particularly the smaller ones such as the various "Digests", etc., are requested to pass them along to the Auxiliary to be fowarded to the Veterans at Shaughnessy Hospital.
Old Christmas cards are also acceptable. These should not be marred in any way. The cards are sent to a Veterans Club, and they put them through a process which removes any writing, as this removes any writing, or printing, and makes them as good as new. So bring them just as they are - do not try to erase any writing as this renders them useless.
Tea Hostesses for the evening were: Mesdames, Reeve, Reynolds, and Laura Sullivan.

NEED FOR ADDED ACCOMMODATION STRESSED BY SCHOOL BOARD
The annual School Meeting for the Squamish School District was held at the school on Saturday, November 13 at 7:30 p.m.
Mr. Eric Stathers was appointed chairman with Mrs. Ross Barr acting as secretary.
Mr. Stathers read a very full report from the School Board giving an account of the money spent and the work accomplished during the school year of 1947-48.
A recommendation was made to the School Board asking them to take note of the crowded conditions at the Squamish School and to make plans to erect: a high school building to alleviate this situation. The purchase of a house to be rented to a high school teacher was also advised.
Mrs. McRae reported that the School Board was fully aware of the local situation. At the present, they were awaiting the completion of the road to Britannia, after
which 15 high school pupils from Britannia might attend Squamish High School instead of going up to Britannia Mines. At present, plans for school buildings had been sent for by the Board.
Mrs. A. McRae was unanimously re-elected as local member of the East Howe Sound School Board.
DR. WILKINSON SURPRISES P-TA
Dr. Wilkinson was the guest speaker at the P.T.A. Meeting held in the school on November 10th.
It was decided to write a letter to the School Board asking that a public health nurse for the whole school district be appointed.
On Thursday, December 16th. the school will hold open house and Mr. Hayes extended a hearty invitation to all parents and friends to come to the school and see the children at work. Each room is making a special effort to offer something interesting to the visitors. The next meeting on December 9th. will be in the form of a Xmas party for members and their friends.
Dr. Wilkinson gave a very interesting talk on children's teeth, with special emphasis on the much discussed fluorine treatments. As a result of lengthy research the Dental Association recently pronounced these treatments to be
40% effective in preventing decay of children's teeth. The dentist surprised his audience by pronouncing himself whole-heartedly in favour of gum chewing, because of the beneficial action of the chewing. In fact, he went so far as to favor tobacco chewing, although no mention was made of the effect of the tobacco on the stomach. Fortunately very few men were present at the meeting.
FIRE AT WATSON SIDING CLAIMS AGED MAN'S LIFE
A veteran of World War I, Edmond Peter Harold, aged 70, lost his life in a disastrous fire at Watson Siding, 20 miles north along the P.G.E. Railway. At this point, the Jamieson Construction Co. operates a work train of eight cars. The men employed are engaged in repairing the railways telephone lines.
As the north bound freight with Engineer Eadie at the throttle approached the siding at approximately 11:45 p.m. on Sunday, November 21st, brakeman Sinley McRae noticed the kitchen car on fire. He immediately aroused the sleeping men, while the remainder of the train crew pulled the six cars not yet burning out of the danger zone. Camp workers and train men attacked the fire by means of a fire pump and the engine hose.
According to witnesses the flames appeared hottest in the vicinity of the kitchen stove, but soon spread to the dining car.
Concern for the cook who was missing led to a search of his quarters at the end of the kitchen car. Not finding him there, the men were certain that he must have escaped. Upon inspecting the dining car, which was beginning to burn, Gordon Campbell, lineman, and Robert Stanley, powderman, found the body of the cook Edmond Harold, some distance from the doorway, slumped against the tables. His death was confirmed by George Millward, First Aid man, who supervised the removal of the body.
As the fire-fighting equipment proved inadequate, attention was centred on keeping the fire from spreading. When Constable Malines visited the scene on the following day, he found both cars completely destroyed down to the decking.
Dr. L. C. Kindree presided at the inquest whlch was held on Tuesday evening, November 23rd. The jury brought in a verdict of death from shock and burns, received accidentally by the cook, with no blame attached to anyone.
The deceased had only been employed at this camp for a week when the tragedy occurred. He is survived by his wife in Vancouver and a brother in England. Funeral services were held fin the Chapel of the Mount Pleasant Undertaklng
Co. on Thursday, November 25th.; interment in Returned Soldier's section of Mountain View Cemetery.
SUCCESSFUL SALE HELD BY WOMEN'S AUXILIARY
The Women's Auxiliary of St. John's Anglican Church held their annual sale in the Parish Hall on the afternoon of Wednesday, Nov. 17th.
The affair was a success from every angle; even the weather was an asset. For those ladles tired of their own cooking, there was a table of homemade delicacies; those shopping for Christmas gifts found a table laden with beautiful
sewing; and there were potted plants for the indoor horticulturist.
Mrs. De Beck's class of little girls had a table all their own, at which they sold candy, knitted doll garments and the recipe for dancing snowballs.
A delightful and refreshing tea gave the shoppers an opportunity to chat with friends.
Mrs. L. Budgell was the lucky winner of the embroidered luncheon cloth.
STANDARD OIL LOCATES HERE
The Squamish Towing Company has acquired the Standard 911 Oil agency for Squamish. This company plans to erect a gas station just south of their quonset building.
Construction of the garage will start early in the New Year. If present plans go through the new station will be in charge of E. Patenaude, well known basketball and softball player from Britannia.
PIONEER PGE FAMILIES UNITED BY MARRIAGE
A marriage uniting two pioneer railroad families took place in St. Joseph's Catholic Church on Tuesday, November 23rd, when Reverend Father Gallo joined in marriage Patricia Frances McCormack and Raymond Keith Rebagliati. The bride is the elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. R. McCormack of Squamish while the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Rebagliati of Lillooet.
Given in marriage by her father the stately bride wore a full-skirted gown of white satin which featured a cowl neckline. Her floor length veil of net fell from a beaded coronet. Her only jewelry was a diamond-studded gold cross on a chain, the gift of the groom. Red roses and gardenias made up the bridal bouquet.
The two bridesmaids Miss Teresa Martin and Miss Viola Halvorson wore similar frocks of moire taffeta with fully gathered skirts and cape sleeves. Miss Martin's dress was shell pink while Miss Halvorson's was ice blue. Both wore matching Mary, Queen of Scots headdresses end elbow length mitts. They carried yellow chrysanthemums and pink carnations.
The groom was supported by Mr. Charles Hurley of Lillooet. Mr. Ronald McCormack and Mr. Harry Nichols were ushers.
The nuptial music was played by Mrs. R. Cole. During the signing of the register Mrs. Skarcynski sang ''Ave Maria".
Following the ceremony a reception was held in the Parish Hall; where Reverend Father Gallo proposed the toast to the bride.
Later the bride and groom left by boat on their honeymoon. For travelling the bride wore a green suit with black accessories and black topcoat. Her corsage was of Talisman roses.
A number of out-of-town guests attended the ceremony. Among them were Mr. and Mrs. McCormack, of Seattle, Mr. and Mrs. P. Rebagliati, Mrs. Kenneth Jones
Mr. and Mrs. Austin Wilson and Mr. and Mrs. R. Williamson, all of Lillooet.
The young couple hope to make their permanent home in Lillooet.
SUNDAY SCHOOLS MAKE SPECIAL PLANS FOR XMAS
The staff of St. John's Anglican Sunday School, and the W.A. are planning to hold a Christmas Party, complete with Christmas tree, games, refreshments, for the
enjoyment of the Sunday School pupils.
The Sunday School pupils of the United Church will hold an open service on Sunday, December 19th at 11 a.m. A special program has been planned for the occasion. Friends and parents are urged to attend.
SQUAMISH ELECTORS GO TO POLLS DECEMBER 16, 17, 18
The electors of Squamish will soon have the opportunity of electing their first local municipal government. At this, the first election, the entire board of three commissioners are to be elected; the candidate receiving the highest number of votes retains his seat as commissioner for three years, the second highest for two years, and the lowest for one year.
Nominations are acceptable until 12 noon, December 9th, and the elections will be held on the 16th, 17th and 18th of December. On the 16th and 17th the polling station will be open from 10 a.m. until 12 noon. The persons who shall be permitted to vote on these two days are the duly qualified voters who expect to be absent from Squamish on the final day of the poll, and they will be asked to sign a statement to that effect. On Saturday, December 18th, the poll will be open to the general public from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m.
The names of all candidates nominated will appear on the ballot. Each voter may vote for not more than three candidates. An X beside more than three names spoils a ballot. However, he may vote for one or two candidates instead of three, but he may not give any one candidate more than one vote.
If your name is on the voter's list you should exercise your franchise. It has been noted lately that in both provincial and municipal elections, more people are becoming conscious of the value of their franchise.
The present Board of Commissioner have laid the groundwork for the procedure of this election, and they would like to see every voter in Squamish show their interest in the municipal affairs of Squamish by getting out to vote.
INTERMEDIATE BADMINTON GROUP CHOOSE OFFICERS

chosen: President, Lek Ross; Vice-President, Jimmie Buchanan; Secretary, Elsie Nygard; Treasurer, Doreen Hurst.

CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR CONSTABLE MALINES
The remodelling of the local police station will probably be completed in time to be an acceptable Christmas gift for Constable and Mrs. Malines.
The changes being made will divide the building into two complete units; all the south half being dwelling quarters for the constable and his wife, with police offices occupying the north half of the building. The work is being done by Pacific Pile Driving Company of New Westminster.
A central hot water heating plant is being intalled by Squamish Hardware. This furnace, of the coal stoker type, should solve the building's heathg problem,
which has always been a headache to the residents.
The new 82-foot flagpole on the Tower of London is Douglas fir, grown on Vancouver Island.

We wish to take this opportunity to express our personal thanks and appreciation for the support you have given The Review. At the end of our first year we are, like so many others, thinking of "New Year resolutions." There is one resolution that we will endeavor to keep from year to year. That is that we will strive to make each issue of the paper more interesting and of greater value than the issue preceding, with our attention directed to the best interests of Squamish, Woodfibre and Britannia.

The third of the series of four Whist Drives was held in the Woodfibre Community Hall on November 24th.
The winners on this occasion were: First Prize, Ladies - Mrs. J. Hutton, Score 164; First Prize, Gentlemen - G. Birnie, Score 168; Second Prize, Ladies - Mrs. E. Norman and Mrs. J. Docherty, Tie, Score 157; Second Prize, Gentlemen - B. Rae, Score 160; Booby Prize, Ladies - Mrs. R. Greveling, Score 118; Booby Prize, Gentlemen - L. Belanger, Score 115.
The last drive af the series is beIng held this week, and the winner bf the Grand Aggregate prize will be announced as soon as possible.
As usual, after the whist was finished there were fun and games conducted by Dave Anderson. On this occasion he was assisted by Bob Whitby, who brought with him his wire recorder, and all the competitors in the “Truth and Consequence” Game had the opportunity to hear their own voices, as well as anyone else who so desired. The highlight of this part of the evening was the singing of ‘The Waggle o’ the Kilt” by George Birnie - he could hardly be distinguished from Harry Lauder!
The big competition of the evenng was the guessing of the name of "Mr. Woodfibre”, who had made a record of his voice, which it was guaranteed was well known to all residents of Woodfibre. A number of persons were called to the platform by numbers, and were given questions. If their answers were correct they were given a chance to guess the name of ,"Mr. Woodfibre.”
The following failed to qualify:
Mrs. Lynch and Mrs. Petovelo, who were not aware that dessert is the first course in a Chinese meal; Bill Dale, who did not know that the beaver is the largest Canadian rodent; P. Wickstrom, who failed to tell us that the Crown Jewels are kept in the Tower of London.
The following incorrect guesses as to Mr. Woodfibre’s identity were made by those who qualified: Mrs. Hazel Frey; who stated correctly that the Three Blind Mice lost their tails through the use of a carving knife, thought he was Craig Lea; M. Gibeloff, who knew that a rabbit runs faster up hill than down, thought he was Mr. Brennan; Mrs. Inglis, who was right in saying that a goose guessed Mr. F. Mullins, Jr., and Mrs. D. Green who quoted correctly the last line in J. Spink's advertisement in the Squamish Review for November, said it was Mr. S. Briggs.
Finally, Mrs. Chadwick, having informed us rightly that all birds lay eggs, guessed the correct identity of the gentleman in question - Jack Spink. In the course of the
evening Dave Anderson had repeatedly announced that a wood and coal stove had been donated as a prize; this was forthwith presented to Mrs. Chadwick. We hope she was not too disappointed to find that it was only eight inches high! However, it should make a nice Christmas present for some young housekeeper.
The game of ‘‘Truth, and Consequences” continued with the following victims: Mrs. Greveling was caught twice. The first time, as she could not state what musical instrument has the highest pitch (it is the piccolo), she had to lap up a saucer of water; the second time she did not know whether there were more white or black squares on a checker board, and had to demonstrate shadow boxing. Mrs. Eckersley could not state the name of the river on which the
town of London, Ontario, is situated, and had to give an exhibition of reducing exercises.
In the course of the evening, it was announced that a Crib Tournment
will be held before Christmas, and medals will be presented both for both singles and doubles entries.
RECENT BRIDE HOLDS TEA
Mrs. Angus McRae, Jr., the former Anne Reambeault, entertained a large group of friends at a tea on the afternoon of November 27, at the home of Mrs. A. McRae Sr.

Ample refreshments were served in the P.G.E. dining room. These were prepared by the Women's Auxiliary to the Legion, under the convenership of Mrs. J. Gibson.
The population of the British Commonwealth is 540 million, and only one in eight is white.
CHICKEN POX RAMPANT
For some years Squamish has been been free of epidemics but this fall an attack of chicken pox has struck the town. In some rooms at the school, the attendance was cut by two thirds. It is to be hoped that the epidemic will have run its course before the holiday season is upon us.

CANADIAN BULL GIVEN AWARD IN ARGENTINE
"Eaton Hall Chieftain Fayne", a Holstein-Friesian bull imported into Argentina from Canada, was runner-up or reserve champion at the recent Palermo Show in the Argentine.
Judges for the important classes were invited from foreign countries, and the majority came from Britain, inasmuchas as Argentine cattle are mainly descended from imported British stock. A Canadian, J.D. Innes of Woodstock, on Ontario, vice-president of the Holstein-Friesian Association of Canada, officiated this year for the first time at the Palermo Show.
The bride was ordering her first ton of coal.
Dealer: What kind of coal did you want?"
Bride (puzzled): "Kind! Are there different kinds?"
Dealer: "Oh yes, for instance we have egg coal and chesnut coal."
Bride: "I'll take the egg coal. I'll be cooking eggs oftener than I will chestnuts."
In dollar value, coal is Canada's second principal import; machinery is first.
SHOWER FOR BRIDE-ELECT
A large group of friends and well-wishers gathered at the Parish Hall on Friday, November 19 to honour Miss Patricia McCormack.

The bride-elect thanked all those who had remembered her so kindly on this occasion, and extended an invitation to all those present to attend her forthcoming marriage and wedding reception.

LADIES AND SALE A SUCCESS
The Ladies Aid of the Squamish United Church held their annual bazaar in the Parish Hall on Saturday, December 4th.
A fine array of novelties appealed to Christmas shoppers. Home-cooking as usual, found a ready sale. The table of white elephants was soon bare, proving that people like to take a chance. A sawdust barrel for the children was a major attraction among the youngsters.
A group of explorers under the leadership of Mrs. G.E. Harris, sold home-made candy. The event was very successful, despite inclement weather.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL
BY DINAH MARIA MULOCK
God rest ye, merry gentlemen; let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas day.
The dawn rose red o'er Bethlehem, the stars shone through the gray,
When Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas day.
God rest ye, little children; let nothing you affright,
For Jesus Christ, your Saviour, was born this happy night;
Along the hills of Galilee the white flocks sleeping law,
When Christ, the Child of Nazareth, was born on Christmas day.
God rest ye, all good Christians; upon this blessed morn
The Lord of all good Christians was of a woman born;
Now all your sorrows He doth heal, your sins He takes away;
For Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas day.
F. HAAR LEAVES
Another real old-timer has left Woodfibre, Mr. Frank Haar, Digester Foreman, who arrived in Woodfibre from Austria in 1911, with some of the original machinery for the mill, has retired from the service of the British Columbia Pulp & Paper Company.
A farewell banquet was held in his honour on November 17th, at which Mr. Brennan, on behalf of his many friends, presented him with a pen and pencil set and a travelling bag, as well as a sum of money.
Since his arrival here so many years ago, Mr. Haar has been at Woodfibre almost continuously, his longest period off the payroll of the present Company and its predecesors being about two weeks. This, I believe, gave him at the time of his retirement the record for the longest service of any employee at Woodfire.
His family joined him here in 1912, and have played an important part in the development of the community - it was one of his daughters who named the town “Wood fibre”.
We all hope that Mr. Haar will have the good luck and happiness which he deserves in his retirement.
The B.C. Pulp & Paper Industrial Safety Association held its Semi-Annual Convention at Woodfibre on Monday and Tuesday, December 5th and 6th.
Representatives were present from the following major firms in the pulp and paper industry: Powell River Co.; B.C. Pulp & Paper Co., Woodfibre and Port Alice; Pacific Mills. Conversion Plant in Vancouver; Canadian Boxes; Westminster
Paper Co. and Sorg Pulp Co. Mr. L. Manley, Secretary-Manager of the Western Branch of the Canadian Pulp & Paper Association was also present.
Mr. Gordon Dubberley, the Safety Director at Woodfibre, was Chairman of the Convention.
At the General Meeting on Monday evening, the delegates were addressed by Mr. A. Francis, Chief Inspector for the Workmen’s Compensation Board, and on Tuesday they were taken for a general tour of the plant.
Mr. R. Jones, Cubmaster of the Woodfibre Wolf Cub Pack, was the guest speaker at the P.T.A. “Fathers’ Night” 0n November 9th. Mr. Jones gave a most interesting account of the work of the Cubs which was much appreciated.
It was decided at this Meeting to authorize the use of the Lunch Room by the Co-operative Play Group which has just been organized.
It was Parents’ Day at the School on November 15th, when the parents of the school children had the opportunity to visit the school and see for themselves the work that is being done. In spite of the inclement weather, there was a good turn-out, and tea was served to the visitors by the P.T.A.
Farming is not a big industry in Newfoundland. Most farms are worked to supplement a family’s income. Only 1,400 farms operate on a commercial scale.
“What’s your cat’s name?”
“What made you call him that?”

CO-OPERATIVE PLAY GROUP
A new undertaking has just been started at Woodfibre, which should be of considerable benefit to the community. This is the Co-operative Play Group for pre-School children, which will be carried on under the supervision of Mrs. W. Ivan.
The facilities of the group are offered at a very reasonable fee, and it will be available for two hours a day, five days a week. The mothers of the younger children will no doubt find this arrangement of great assistance to them, and the project is one which fully deserves the support of the community.
The committee in charge are:
President - Mrs. E. Preiss; Secretary - Mrs. E. Beckett; Treasurer - Mrs. F. Johnson; Publicity - Mrs. J. Spink, Mrs. J. White and Mrs. H. Frey.
A case worker at the welfare agency in a southern town was interviewing an applicant who asked for aid for herself and her 13 children.
"But I don't understand," the case worker said in surprise. "You say your husband deserted you ten years ago, yet eight of your children are under ten years of age.”
“Oh,‘ I can explain that, yes, ma’am,” said the applicant beaming. “You see he came back now and then to apologize.”

1949 "FIRST BABY' CONTEST
TO THE PARENTS OF THE FIRST BABY BORN TO BONA-FIDE RESIDENTS OF SQUAMISH, WOODFIBRE OR BRITANNIA, THE FIRMS LISTED BELOW IN EACH COMMUNITY ARE PROUD TO PRESENT A SHOWER OF GIFTS TO THEIR RESPECTIVE "FIRST CITIZEN."
SQUAMISH'S FIRST BABY
of 1949 will be received with honours thanks to the generosity of the Squamish merchants who are co-operating in ’the first annual Review “First Baby of the Year’’ Contest.
The merchants and the Review have all chosen gifts which will be of equal value to a boy or a girl, and the lucky baby will be well equipped to commence the new
year under happy circumstances.
The first baby of the New Year may not be along immediately after the commencement of 1949, but don’t worry about that. The first child born to bona-fide residents of Squamlsh during 1949, whatever the date will receive these well-chosen gifts, providing notification is made to The Review within 48 hours after the birth has occurred.
Baby must eat, so Squamish Dairy will supply free milk for a month. Manner‘s Red and White Store, anticipating the weaning period, is supplying a case of strained baby food.
For the chap who has to pace the floor, our three local restaurants will arrange to “feed father.’’ Pop will have his breakfast at the Waltz Inn, dinner at the Del Mar and supper at the Squamish, free for a whole week while mother is away at hospital.
A good financial start in life is a necessity these days, so The Review is opening a savings account at the Bank of Nova Scotia in the amount of five dollars, and whether the baby is born with a silver spoon in his or her mouth or will no will make no difference, because Douglas Fenton will provide one in any case, engraved with the baby’s initials.
To keep baby snug, MacKenzie’s are giving a Baby Bunting-Bag made of warm blanket cloth. For that skin you love to touch, Yarwood’s will provide a lovely baby
toiletry set, while the new arrival will also receive an order for a decorated birthday cake from the Squamish Bakery.
To complete the list, the return home of mother and the baby from Vancouver is assured by Glen’s Taxi, who will arrange to bring them home by boat and by car to enjoy Squamish’s welcome to it’s first baby of the year.
WOODFIBRES FIRST ARRIVAL in 1949 will be greeted with open arms by Woodfibre merchants, too!
The first baby of the new Year is not expected to arrive on January 1st but that fact will make no difference as long as he or she as the case may be, is born to bonafide residents of Woodfibre. Notification to The Review must be made within 48 hours after the baby’s birth.
So to Woodfibre’s sweetheart goes a beautiful sterling silver spoon and fork set with the best wishes of Jack Spink - engraved with the baby’s initials. Preparing baby’s food will be made easier for mother with the double boiler to be provided by Haar and Lea Hardware in honour of the event.
The first step on the road to financial security for the 1st in ’49 will be made by The Review with the opening of a $5.00 back account in the Bank of Nova Scotia.
Mother will also be remembered for Knowles and ful bouquet of flowers in honour of Woodfibre's first mother of the year.

REMEMBRANCE DAY SERVICE
At 10:30 a.m. on the morning of November 11, veterans of Squamish and members of the Women's auxiliary met at the Squamish Theatre to parade to the P.G.E. Hall for the annual Remembrance Day Service.
Led by E. Tutin as Director of Command, Dr. Wilkinson, Mrs. J. Gibson as flag-bearer and Mrs. D. Cameron, the parade, augmented by children and remembering adults marched down Cleveland Avenue to the drug store, along
Victoria Street to Second Street and up Second Street to the P.G.E. Hall.
On entering the buildings a moment of silence in memory of fallen comrades was observed. Following the singing of “O Canada,” the Reverend C. Addyman offered a prayer. Those present then joined together in singing, “O God, Our Help In Ages Past,” the traditional hymn of this day.
Reverend C. Gibbs then read Psalm 90, followed by brief addresses by both Rev. Addyman and Rev Gibbs.
After the singing of the rousing hymn “Onward Christian Soldiers," a closing prayer was offered before the official ceremony was ended.

SQUAMISH BOARD OF TRADE
The regular monthly meeting of the Squamish and Howe Sound District Board of Trade was held Wednesday, December 1, 1948, in the dining-room of the P.G.E. Hall.
There was considerable discussion on the road conditions, and the river. It was felt gravel was needed for our road.
The New Year’s Eve dance was also discussed, and it was decided to have one again this year.
The members were very pleased to find that the B. C. Electric Company were looking forward to new industries opening up in Squamish when more power was

OLD AND NEW ABERDEEN
by Elizabeth Richmond
Aberdeen, at the mouth of the river Dee in Scotland, is often referred to as the Granite City, after most of its buildings. Among these are the Marischal College,
the extension of which was opened in 1906 to celebrate the quater centenary of Aberdeen’s University.
The long graduation hall of the college has an heraldic window which illustrates its history. This history began in 1593 when George Keith, fifth Earl Marischal of Aberdeen founded it in the old Greyfriars monastery.

SCOTTISH LIBERATOR WALLACE
YES, TREES ARE SHIPPED AWAY TO CARIBBEAN
What is Christmas without a tree? That’s what a lot of people say who live in the warmer climes of the Caribbean lands and in Central American countries. And
they do something about it, for inspectors of the plant protection division, Dominion Department of Agriculture have recently inspected 30,662 Christmas trees shipped by a Maritime company to destinations in those areas.
The market in southern countries is limited to those which have a good sprinkling
of former northerners residing there, reports A. E. McCollom, the Division’s Supervising Inspector. Such people like to celebrate Christmas with a tree as they did in their more northerly homes.
Over the years, too, some of the natives working for these people have copied the habits of their employers, and their friends have trees in their homes at Christmas The trees are trimmed by the natives in much the same way as is done by families in Canada.
Unfortunately a great increase in the distribution of this symbol of Christmas in
these southern areas may not be possible. Santa Claus, his sleigh and reindeers unfortunately are symbolic too and cannot make delivery; high ocean freight rates and delivery charges are actual - they add greatly to the cost of the tree to the user.
NEW TENTH PROVINCE - As with her sister provinces Newfoundland will be responbible for her own highways, education and most health and welfare facillties - all of which rank high among current needs. Ottawa will provide family allowances, old age pensions, unemployment insurance, sick mariners’ benefits and housing assistance.
There’s a lot of boys of 18 who just can’t believe that some day they’ll be as dumb as their fathers.
HIGHEST AVERAGE WAGE MARK HIT IN BC HISTORY
"A peak year of industrial development" is recorded in the 30th annual report of the provincial department of labour for 1947, just issued.
"The industrial wealth of the province is reflected in the rising provincial estimated payroll, which in 1947 totalled some $490,000,000, an apparent increase of $57, 080, 273 over the final estimated total for 1946," the report says.
"Heavy demands for primary products, the necessity for increased production, and a rapid growth in population brought large-scale development programs in the lumber industries, public utilities, and construction industries."
The average weekly industrial wage figure for all male wage-earners rose to $43.49, the highest level yet recorded, and an increase of $3.62 over the preceding year, according to the government figures.
Greatest increase was in the lumber industries (up $30,000,000). The construction industry increased by $17,000,000 to another record.

THE PRINCE OF PEACE
(From the Christian Science Monitor)
THAT CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!
There used to be a ditty which children chanted in the streets of the Old Country, to the effect that “Christmas comes but once a year, And when it does it brings good cheer.” Well, maybe it does but not so much as it might.
Laying aside for the moment the unfortunate fact that our own country is in much better circumstances than others in providing the occasions for “good cheer,” it is timely to ask if we are doing all we can, individually and collectively, within our
own country, to bring about that ideal of “Peace on earth, good will to men!” which we are supposed to uphold as a religion.
Good cheer is not a mater confined to the sharing of a big special meal or of imbibing freely of spirituous beverages. Many people may regard those indulgences as part of the observance of Christmas - the season especially associated with “good cheer” - but they are by no means all. They are not even the main part of it, if we look at the question aright.
If good cheer, good will mean anything, they mean surely the sharing and enjoying in common of the essentials of good living. And good living in the right sense, comes from the Giver of all good, and not from human generosity.
good, and not from human generosity.
Such good will giving and sharing would not be confined to one brief season of the year, one climactic orgy of feasting and drinking that in the act of indulgence enlarges its horizon to include all who can be persuaded similarly to indulge.
Life is not that easy, and the spreading of Christmas cheer cannot be squared with our consciences by a spurt of more or less indiscriminate giving of material things at Christmastime. Nobody really questions the giving of gifts, and the close of the year seems to be generally accepted as an appropriate occasion for such giving. But if we are not to miss the real meaning of the anniversary of Jesus’ birth, we are bound to keep in mind. this season and every season, that “Peace on earth. good will to men” is a goal to be kept in view throughout the year, and year by year, until it is finally accomplished.

WHAT CHRISTMAS REALLY MEANS...
It's the smell of mince pies wafted down the hall,
The garlands of pine branches hung on the wall.
It's the thrill and excitement of trimming the tree,
Then drawing the curtain for the world to see.
It's the tingle of secrecy for weeks ahead,
Then the wrapping of gifts, bright green and red.
It's the shiny red apple left with great care
In the hopes'that St. Nicholas soon will be there.
It's the warm all-togetherness of Christmas Eve,
When overflow of affection is not hard to perceive.
It's the ringing of church bells - O Silent Night,
The voices of carolers singing with might.
It's the profound communion between father and mother,
At the end of a prayer made by son or daughter.
It's all little sleepyheads with drowsy blue eyes
Dreaming of reindeer who prance through the skies.
It's the expectant hush of the house before dawn.
Before visions of sugar plums are all gone.
It's the rush of children to the top of the stairs
To peek in wonder at gifts that are theirs.
It's a prayer and a wish that Christmas will be
Peace everlasting - for you and for me.
