Y.,.  y :  ; The inain difficulties, which  beset hospital authorities all  oyer the province are being  tabulated and analyzed, in a re--  port expected to reach the B.C.  government before Christmas.  Based on a survey made this  year without cost to the province by the Kellogg foundation  of Battle Creek, Michigan, the  report is being prepared by^  Graham L. y Davis, Y hospital  director for the foundation.  ":>:  in addition to covering all ���;  phases bt the hospitalization  problem, it will dfcaT withr: the  ratio of doctors, dentists and  hurses to the province's evergrowing population. The survey was arranged by Health  Minister G. S. Pearson shortly  after the last session of the legislature, in response to urgent  requests from both urban and  rural areas.     Y. \Yy  The report is expected to contain Mr. Davis' findings on a  series of hearingsheld throughout the province, at which briefs  and representations were given  by many organizations interested in hospital work.

The plans shqw an L-shaped  breakwater e.xtending out from  the shore to a point beyond the  present temporary structure.

'.* "'PA. 3.48.y  INITIAL run of the new "Gulf  Stream" is expected to: be  made next Wednesday, The  News was informed by Ted JLe-  Page of Gulf Lines Ltd. today.  The smart new vessel which will  maintain daily service between  here and Vancouver is now receiving the final touches in a  city drydock after coming  through her trial runs with flying colors.  "Unfortunately we won't have  her in the fully spic and span  and polished condition we would  like," said LePage. "If you have  ever tried painting in a cloudburst you will know the reason  why.  "However, she will be a fine  ship and comfortable. We are  running her main engines in at  the' dock. Swarms of shipwrights, steel workers and  plumbers are getting in each  dthfer# way."  'like hew vessel will be commanded by Capt. Roy Barry,  who was the first skipper of the  Gulf Wing. Capt. Barry brought  the new Gulf Mariner into Vancouver last week after going to  Halifax to take over the vessel.  Gul_ Mariner is tied up' at  present but plans are going  ah^ad for her conversion. Mr.  *age was enthusiastic about  new vessel which will be  placed in service hexfespring.  "I came up from Victoria on  her last Friday," he said, "and  she travels like a scalded cat.  We only opened her up for a  few miles."  A Christmas schedule for the  Gulf Line boats appears elsewhere in this paper. {  A NEW departure in log towing  ... technique that may soon be  seen here was introduced recently by Canadian Western  Logging Company when the tug  "Florence Filberg" arrived at  Frasers Mills with a "bundled"  log boom.  The bundled boom is composed of bundles of logs tied together with steel cable and wire  drawing about six feet of water.  Numerous bundles are then enclosed in the chained boom logs.  Forming a compact mass the  bundled raft is reported to have  many advantages over the old  flat raft that covers such a large  area of water.  Sponge Washed Up  A LARGE piece of natural  sponge, believed washed up  by the recent heavy winds, was  found on the beach at Westview,  Tuesday, by Mrs, C. Markley.  Bits of sponge are not an uncommon find along thp waterfront but it is seldom so large a  piece as was fouhd.  in  OUT OF SERVICE for the past  three weeks for the purpose  of undergoing annual overhaul,  the Canadian National steamer  "Prince Rupert" resumed its  regular weekly, schedule last  Monday, sailing from Vancouver  at 9 p.m. with calls at Westview,  Ocean Falls, Prince Rupert and  Ketchikan.  A good coat of paint properly  applied dries in about the thickness of a sheet of newspaper, or  1/300th of an inch on the average. That isn't much, but it  represents the most important  1/300th of an inch of any structure as far as protection and  beauty are concerned.

Friday, December 13, 1946  BUILDING  COSTS  "OUT OF LINE"  (Edmonton Bulletin)  OFFICIALS of the department of reconstruction and supply have made a survey of the  housing situation and what led up to it. Their  conclusion is that "high construction costs are a  serious deterrent to a large housing program of  a continuing nature."  During the war years the wages of men in  the building industry went up 31 per cent. This  was not out of line with the general trend. But  wages in the logging industry and in manufacturing industries also went up, and 41 per  cent was added to the cost of building materials. All these items have been added to the  prewar cost of putting up a house.  They were not the only items which had to  be added. The survey showed that an even  more serious factor was a decline of efficiency  on the part of "on the Site" construction labor.  This came about because men in the building  trades grew older and not enough young men  went into training. As men slow up with age,  the result was less accomplished per man-hour  than had been accomplished in 1939.  As house-building became urgent, semiskilled and even unskilled men were drafted  into construction work, at wage rates bEtsed on  skilled labor. Not only so; men had to be  paid while they "waited on the joh" for materials which were slow in arriving.  Similarly, the demand for houses drew into  the construction business men who lacked training and experience, and whose efficiency was  also below par.  As a result of all these added items, the cost  of putting up. houses had advanced from 47 to  62 per cent by 1945, "and preliminary data indicate that the cost has risen further since  1945." Building costs are therefore "out of  line" with the advance in the cost of living and  with the average increase in wages.  This being the situation, it is obvious that  private enterprise cannot supply houses at  prices and rentals within reach of those who  need accommodation. The only way to break  the dead-lock, and get construction .going, oh a  broad scale is to.bridge the gap between the  cost of building a house and the price tjie house-  hunter can pay; by subsidizing the builder to  that amount.  This should be done, because houses are desperately needed and no other expedient offers.  As a long term policy, subsidizing would be a  mistake, but as a means to meet the emergency  it is justified and would be effective.  Foetus Corner  THE SASKATCHEWAN PRAIRIES  By C.

Beautiful, terrible, wonderful land,  Land that to some may be dreary,  But peaceful and glad is the heart of man  Who is true to pis home on the prairie.  GREAT is the Lord, and greatly to be  praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.  The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion ; slow to anger and of great mercy.  The Lord is good to all: and His tender  mercies are over all His works. All Thy  works shall praise Thee, O Lord; and Thy  saints shall bless Thee.  The Lord is righteous in all His ways,  and Holy in all His works. The Lord is  nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to  all that call upon Him in truth. He will  fulfil the desire of them that fear Him:  He also will hear their cry, and will save  them. The Lord preserveth all them that  love Him; but all the wicked will He'destroy.

The Unseen Tides  THE YEAR ebbs away into December and the  deepening chill of approaching* winter; but  there is a flow rather than an ebb in the unseen  wind tides that lap at the hills and send their  invisible breakers to hiss softly in the timbered  valleys. They are the tides that curl around  the earth, forever restless and eternally moving, tides that obey some subtler master than  the moon.  If you sit beside the hearth on ah early December evening you'll hear the wind tides  sucking at the chimney, hear the swish of unseen waves breaking against the corner of the  house, feel the quiver of panes shaken by the  breakers of a vast, invisible ocean. Sit there  and listen, and you can hear the rise and fall  of the wind waves, the rush of one after another as they gradually build to a final crescendo and fall momentarily silent, only to start  again.  Night time, silent night, is the time to hear  these wind tides, a night when the moon is late  and the stars are dim with the racing spray of  cloud waves.   At dawn or dusk you can almost  2see the^as theygpytt  fdrive Waives bf rain ahead^bf them \  ed.street. Restless, and forever rrioving, they  batter the year-end and conjure the promise;  of a new spring and new sunshine.  Iiiiisnal. Yoa.

Paw Pe__rs��n*--Sec.-Treas.  POWELL River district may  rest assured that its few  sturdy horses won't be drafted into the Canadian army, because that body has announced  that horses are-definitely on the  way out. As an heirloom and  a showpiece, failing, to make a  positive contribution to modern  army methods, the horse is being banished from the permanent Canadian army.  A spokesman at army headquarters in Ottawa has made it  clear that the active force has  joined a trend which considers  the horse a fugitive from the  milk wagon, the beer truck, and  even frequently from the furrowed soil itself.  The explanation that the  horse is becoming an anachronism in this machine age, was  given in answer to the failure  of Canada to field an army team  for the jumping at either the  Royal Winter fair in Toronto or  the National Horse Show in New  York.':;.     N  "Before the war, these shows  Were scenes of proficient Canadian riding against such cbun-TiY  tries as the United StateSj'  France, Belgium, Russia and  Germany. The competition this ���*'  year *. saw entries only from  United States, Mexico and Peru.-  With' army approval, an effort was put forward by the  Winter Fair to organize a Canadian team but it failed, because  it couldn't round up enough  satisfactory horses in Canada *  and because it couldn't get army .  approval to mount Canadians on  horses offered by the United  States army.  Possibly there is a different  spirit among the troopers with  such permanent force cavalry  r^g^j^rij^  cbha's'v^orse^'^yand'^itlie;-  Royal-  Canadian   Dragoons.   , But    at  army headquarters the horse is  viewed as simply another sacrifice to time.  Officials estimate it would require an outlay of roughly $50,-  000 to get the army the 16-odd  horses needed for a team -for.  next November's competition  and for the grooms, training;  space, stables and transport required to put them there.  The odds are that it would  have a fair chance of placing  second. In 1948, it would have  ah equally fair chance of, coming first, but at an additional  and continuing cost of $15,000  a year.

Of Coal Mine  Deal in North  A REPORT originating in Prince  Rupert last month to the effect  that Powell River Company and  Pacific Mills were negotiating  to take over two coal properties  in the central interior was denied here last Friday by B.

Minister Reports  On Alaska Highway  A COMPREHENSIVE report,  with many photographs, on  the recent survey of the B.C.  section of the Alaska highway  has been made to lands minister  E. T. Kenney, and will be considered soon by the provincial  government's special committee  on the opening of the highway  to tourist traffic, the minister  stated. The committee comprises Hon. Mr. Kenney,, Hon.  Herbert Anscomb, minister of  finance, and Hon. E. C. Carson,  minister of public works.  GOOD PROGRESS is reported  in the survey of coal resources  in the Hassler Creek area, on the  route of the Pine Pass highway,  according to a report received  this week by Hon. E. T. Kenney  from Dr. T. B. Williams, who is  directing the exploration. The  report indicates that diamond  drilling has confirmed earlier  belief in the existence of large  beds of coal. Three of the four  test holes have produced cores  showing "much coal," Dr. Williams' report says, and all work  to date has been successful.  RADIO REPAIRS  and SERVICE  W. G.

I think it was to be a one^meal  day���lasting all day long. One  girl said she was not going to  eat hardly a thing between now  and Christmas because they  were going to have a 15-lb.  turkey at their place. Another  girl said her folks were settling  for goose, and a third saicl they  would probably have glazed ham  at Christmas arid turkey for  $ew Years. I suppose they had  visions of His Majesty the Turkey plump and golden wearing  a wreath of holly around him on  the dish. Peuhaps his supporting cast would be candied yams  arid orange slices, broccoli and a  tray of crisp bright relishes.  Also putting on a good show  would be Miss Salad dressed in  blushing whole pears on crari-:  berry sauce rings sprigged with  holly arid garnished with en-  bUye for greenery.

Friday, December 13, 1946  POWELL River housewives  who have been scratching  through the grocery store  shelves in search of canned salmon for several years now have  good news in store for them  from the fisheries  department.  The word is that more tinned  salmon will be going on the domestic market from this year's  take than in any recent year.  The allocation for the Canadian  householder will be 500,000  cases, agamst 300,000 last year  and much less than that in  earlier years.  .' The 500,000-case share of the  pack, however, is considered not  greatly below normal Canadian  requirements.        ;    ���  This enlargement in the home  allocation has : been brought  about " despite a 406,000-case  drop in British Columbia's packy  for this year.YY;While annual  canning operations are not yet  over in B.C., the fisheries department says it is unlikely the  pack will net much more than  1,300,000 cases, as against slightly more than 1,700,000 last year.  As the western catch dwindled, it was feared for a time  that Canada's own consumption  of the fish would have to be  slashed further. But the situation was met by reducing shipments to other countries.  Planet is a Greek word meaning wanderer.  A GOOD  SELECTION  NOW AT  HARDWARE  Gibsons Landing  ALMOST 40,000 square miles of  British Columbia were covered by aerial photography during  1946, it was announced by Hon;  E. T. Kenney, minister of lands  arid forests. Using the most  modern photographic equipment  developed during the war, the  surveyor-general's branch of the  lands and forests department and  the :R.C.A.F. carried out this  work. Prime use for the photographs is to develop topographic  maps..  Any organization or individuals interested in securing aerial  pictures of any part of the  country that has been photographed may obtain them for  the cost of printing, from the  Q,rnveyor - General, Victoria,  B.C.

Co-respondent  JAMES SINCLAIR, M.P., was in  the district ahd addressed the  veterans at 3 p.m. Friday, Dec.  6th, and in the evening attended the Sechelt Improvement Association's meeting.

This was held  on Thursday, Dec. 5, in the Legion Hall. The hall was packed  all day with people buying  things they needed and at the  same time helping a very wor^  thy cause. I believe the net  profit was well over $300. Mrs.  Neal thanks all those who kindly helped with the bazaar, and  the public generally who gave  so much for this great cause.  *. ;    *        *  It is rioted with regret that  Mr.. Bissonette, teacher at the  Sechelt United School, is resigning: after the Christmas  holidays. Mr. bissonette will  be missed at |he school. The  children respected him and he  was a splendid teacher.  * *      *  The mission being conducted  at Holy Family Church, Sechelt,  B.C., by Rev!

Anybody seeking information  that might be found in these  books is cordially invited to take  advantage of them.  Did you ever wonder at, or  attempt to estimate, the number  of businesses of various tyffces  now in existence in the community of Gibsons? Sub j ect to  correction by anyone interested  in revising this number, there  are fifty. This, in itself, is not  so significant as the fact that  half of these businesses have  sprung up during the past year,  and a great percentage of that  figure within the past few  months. There has been no  heralded boom, nor an unstable  shoestring growth. Rather, it  has been a quiet series of additions to services that a growing  community needs. But there is  no denying the fact that during  the past twelve monhs the  business development of this  community has increased 100  per cent.  *    *    *  Bert Cole, ration officer for  the Sechelt peninsula, is in hospital in Vancouver for a rest.  He collapsed while in the city  on-business, and must take several weeks' rest before resuming  his duties.  ���'..���*���.*.,..*���'.

When the maimed and slain  were counted it was discovered  that the match was a draw in  games at 15 each, withy the Robertsons having a slight edge on  total points. However, Gibsons  executed a brilliant infiltration  moyernent h^H&e kitchen following the fray, and easily out-  generalled the home team in  that field. A re-match is proposed at Gibsons for next Wednesday, with more darn fun iri  the offing.  To Calf for Tenders  On Storage Dam Job  THE B.C. Power Commission is  calling tenders early next  week for the construction of a ",  storage dam which will raise  the level of Lower Campbell  Lake 58 feet to provide adequate  water for the development of  100,000 horsepower at fthe commission's Campbell River hydroelectric project.  The. dam will have a capacity  of almost 70,000,000,000 gallons.  Completion i of Y- the Adam will  make.it possible for the commisr-  siori tp���".. regulate .the flow of  Campbell River; - during high  and low water toy provide a constant flow for the huge turbines.  Closing date/ for the tenders is  Jan.Y3L It is expected that; the  dam Ywill he com^letedYby the  spring'of 1948. ��� y:;-Yy':  POSSIBLE transfer of the pro-  : vincially-owried Pacific Great  Eastern railway to the Dominion  government has been discussed  between the British Columbia  delegates, in Ottawa for tax  agreement talks, and the Dominion government. However,  any P.G.E. transaction^ will not  ' form a direct part of the tax  agreement.  Such a transfer could take the  form of, a "corollary agreement,"  somewhat similar to the "corollary" relief debt agreement with  Saskatchewan.  Possibility that B.C. may receive special consideration in  the form of road building sub-  . sidies is also being mooted.  British Columbia, because of its  mountainous territory, faces exceptionally high road construe-  ���tion and maintenance costs.  M*n?nna��V~  tutu . iviwrnuw w-v-'  BRITANNIA BEACH  R.
