It is laid down in the Act that two-thirds of the net  amount of its revenues will be paid into the Social Security  Fund to protect persons in receipt of social services of.  all kinds, such as:  In 1939 In 1948  Old Age Pensioners    12,810 22,401  Social Allowance Beneficiaries...    10,755 12,591  Child Welfare Beneficiaries         958 1,402  Actually, the Social Security cost to British Columbia  is many millions more than the tax is expected to yield,  _is the following table shows:  {Estimated)  1930 1940 1948  $2,643,000   $4,110,000   $5,604,000   $21,000,000  The remaining one-third of this tax revenue will go to  Municipalities proportionately for the express purpose of  easing the tax burden oh real property.

The lure of opportunities in the  outside world is beginning to  have its effect on Gabarouse  young people. Up to a few years  ago, a new son in a family meant  another hand'on the fishing boats  and a new daughter meant another worker at home. Many of  the older folk in Gabarouse can't  read or write, because they were  too busy to attend school. But  these conditions are gradually  changing.  EDUCATION AIDED  "The family allowance act has  made a big difference," said Mrs.  Gray, "because children have to  go to school until they are 16 or  the family allowance can't be  collected. Just last year, one boy  got his dentist's degree at Dal-  housie���the first time anyone in  Ouse. about 25 years ago," said  Mrs. Gray, "but he died, thank  goodness. He was one of those  old horse doctors and didn't believe in anything like anaesthetics. He would pull out a person's  teeth all at once and just throw  the teeth out the back door. Tonsils went the same Way."  Luckily for Gabarouse, there  has never been an epidemic of  any kind. The residents attribute their good health to a heavy  iron diet���they eat dulce an<J of  course fish graces the table six  days a week. On Sundays, everyone has a roast from the general store. The isolated position  of the village means there is little chance of an epidemic getting started.
