'  In making the decision,  the Board of Trade took  cog-nizanca of the number  of persons both events  would . lattjract, "splitting  them would hardly make  sense,"  a spokesman said.  The emergency decision  was made when the executive was faced by clash with  Ferry Day.  Thank you, fieorge Frith  5 J  At long last the ear ferry will commence operations between  Gibsons and Horseshoe Bay.  And so have come true the dreams of every oldtim<3r in the  district and hopes of us all.  "Progress, they say.  Such is 'pnogress.  ^..Progress it may be,-but this'time sp^ething^m^  than that has b^eri added; something'which:has been the dfeani  /of one-man since the last war. The car-feriy, in the mind of  this man, faced by scoffers, has always been assured.  In the middle of wintry nights-when everyone was asleep  I land the wind was cutting and howling around the shore line  I /and this man alone serviced his limp, weary motor in a wearier  ' 'little boat ���- the car ferry dream was stiir bright.  When .money was just a memory and credit had to be  squeezed from doubtful business men, when every muscle ached  from a daily 14 hours of hard toil .with salt encrusted hands,  bucking the freezing, vicious Squamish in order to prove his  point��� that dream still held bright.  When,-finally, disaster faced him, his friends denied him  and he stood alone without ship, money or hope ��� that dream  ' ystill burned clear.

Members of both -units% made Avise choices in their head  men. John Bunyan, prexy for the Gibsons Board of Trade is a  young, progressive man representing ��� one of the largest companies in the area. '    .  In Sechelt, E. Parr Pearson, one time logger, newspaper  man and noAV resident manager for Union Steams/hips Avill lead  his Board onto bigger things. ,  In taking over the reins of office, John Bunyan urged members to get behind the Board and to let petty differences and  personalities remain outside the organization. This is sound advice and all members'will' do Avell to take these words to heart.  In .choosing his committee heads, Mr. Pearson ranged far  and wide and came up Avith the best to be had.  Probably the most important committee in any Board is the  Trades and Industry committee. In Sechelt this is headed by  Hardware Man Jim Parker, who is going to approach his job  with imagination and vigour.  Jim has plans Avhich are just a little off the beaten track  as far as the usual proceedure folloAved by that committee. It  will be interesting to watch his' plans unfold in actual fact.  Jim Veiteh has always, been saddled with the Trades and  ���Industry committee in Gibsons and his work has been cut or.f  for him. It is an onerous position and one filled Avith responsibility, y  All Trade Board committees are important'. It is only by  getting behind the committees and making them work that the  Board can possibly be successful.  We are now on the threshold of a new era. We are looking.  to our trade boards to-show t!h,e way. We hope they will be progressive and work at all times for the good of the community  in which Ave live. "'  'sBif Bay  Pender Harbour, that, land of unexpected beauties will  hold its aequatic sports day on August 5,  The Board of Trade, thaf perrenial booster for the community, has taken charge, of what is hoped will be the finest in  history.  A clam has been constructed at Garden'Bay-where children  may .swim in safety just in front of the Hospital, and t'hie Hotel.  This is something that has long been needed in that land of  water but little SAvimming facilities.-  The water will be high on that day and everyone will have  a chance to do their utmost on behalf of sportsmanship.  Royal Murdock, leader of the trade board has issued a  public invitation to every swimmer on the Sechelt Peninsula to  "come up to Pender and compete."  There have always been worthwhile prizes and cups and it  will  Le  strange  indeed  if there  should be anything different  this year.'

With, the  femperaitures in or.near the  seventies;, and the.; populace  generally dripping from every  pore I can do nought7 else but  concede that summer is here.  The young fry are all busily  engaged in their summer time  pursuits, garbed in their summertime apparel and being  exceedingly  vocal.  Those  who mourn for their  lost youth  seem v to have forgotten  its  never . ending  sue-  . cession of tribulation^ frustration and heartbreak.  Being old has its compeiir  satidns. By "old" I mean  anything over thirty, because  as far as the young are concerned, 'thirty is antiquity  where there is little to choose  between old, older or oldest.  To -them there-just can't ,be  any compensations.  Trying to change the minds  of the young about their elders  is a rpretty hopeless proposition, -so , if anything under  thirty .happens* to have read  this far '���" I. suggest a quiet  broAvse among the classified  ads while we ancients take a>  "look at some of these compensations. :���  Firs^. on the list is the question of speed.

I am  here to serve you in every way  in  wjiich  I  po-sibly   can.   Do  not hesitate to call on me.  Good luck  with your meeting  B. M. Maclntyre, ML.A: I Martin Gives  aiks On Defense  In civil defence, local planning and effort are all-important. It is essential to build.an  leffective   organization   on   the  local  level. m  Civil  defence   in  one of its essential aspects is  the assurance "of the mainten-  . anee    of    normal    community  services.    Fire   protection   for  property    obviously    must   be  handled on a local basis,  and  most   other   measures  for /defence  and  assistance must ��� be  organized" locally and operated  by the citizens of the' locality.  In  civil   defence    the  main  1 operational  r e s p o n s ability,  apart    from'    overall     plans,  training,    and     co-ordination,  must  fall  on  the  local   municipal agencies that now main-  fain  the  normal   amenities   of  life   in   Canada's  urban   com-'  munities.  In a sense, the success or  failure of civil defence de-  spends as much on the individual as on the communify,  since voluntary assistance and ���  personal initiative and co-operation are of such importance.

'������: iv-V   ,-   -v  '  Private hospital insurance plans do not operate in B.C. because they can not match  B.C.H.I.S. services for the same low premium. When the government introduced Hospital  Insurance, provision was made whereby any existing plan could continue operation  providing it could give equal benefits and cover age*. Private plans could not da this  and as a result left the field.  When comparisons are made between B.C.H.I.S. and private plans, it is often forgotten that B.C.H.I.S. covers everyone, and seldom remembered that private plans were  restricted in services and, in membership. As a result, .their benefits were limited to certain  groups. In most cases, private plans select the people they will insure, and limit what  they will cover. '" ,     ���  For example, many .private plans do not insure against the re-occurance of a previous  ailment, nor insure anyone over a certain age. This feature automatically excludes a  large number bf people. Private plans did a good job as far as they went, but they didn't  go far enough. They were not designed to meet the needs of the people of B.C.  The people of B.C. needed a Hospital Insurance plan. Before B.C.H.I.S. started in  . 1949, nearly one out of every three persons could not pay his hospital bill. Many hospitals,  were losing money and cities, municipalities and the provincial government had to  give cash grants to keep them in operation. Something had to be worked out to-protect',  the people from high hospital bills, and at the same time help the hospitals. B.C.H.I.S.  was the answer. B.C. citizens can now enjoy protection against large hospital bills,  for acute care. ; v  * ' " - ������.....'..-. ��� ���'������'.--���'. y       :  Some people have said, '* Give the Hospital Insurance plan back to the private  plans", without considering that private plans operated before B.C.H.I.S. They operated  in the midst of the conditions which made B.C.H.I.S. necessary. They .didn^t solve  the overall situation in 1948, and they wouldn't solve it now-. Private plans were good  as far as they went, but they didn't go far enough to solve B.C.'s problems.

DEFENCE  f.  LBARN ��� AND LIVE  These two types of attack are.-'notnewalthough germ warfare has been  used, on a limited;icale^up until^ow. $oth a^  livestock and even crops. If gas is not fatal, it will incapacitate soldiers  and home front workers for long periods. Apart from this gas attack  causes panic, which is what an enemy desires.  GAS WARFARE-  While gas warfare does not present as much danger as atomic attack  it can be serious if weather conditions are favourable* depending on wind  temperature and degree of moisture. The nature of the terrain has much to  do with the success of the attack. Open country allows free movement  while built up areas tend to retain gas. The three most effective gases are  Choking, Blister and Nerve Gas. Any of these may be distributed as vapor,  as solid particles Qrlay theprocess of liquid droplets. * '...-..���������-���"  In the case pf gas attack, keep your respirator handy, make sure it  is always in good condition, practice putting it on quickly, do not touch  any food or water in open containers.  After a gas attack liquid and ^nud picked up on footwear is still  dangerous materialas are the vapors arising from liquid on the ground.  First remove as much of danger as possible by hosing contaminated areas  and! where destruction has taken place cover, with chemical bleach and  earth.Seal off suspected areas with three inches of earth, sand or, ashes.  Where droplets or vapor have been used all equipment should be exposed  to weathering'from sun,, wind and rain.  GERM WARFARE-  Germ warfar|vpresents new problems in cmlian and military defence.  It can be carried!put by air in the form of mist sprays, from submarines  through mist machines,, by percussion boinbs and by fifth column poisoning of food and water supplies.  Because germ? and toxin attacks can sometimes be carried out secretly,  defence is difficult.1 However, there are things you must do to lessen the  chance of success of this type of warfare. First of all don't listen to rumours  about germs, because "that is wha>t the enemy are trying to create panic.  Above all report any: unusual sickness among humans, animals and  poultry. Keep-your house clean at all'times and if there is a raid don't  run out from shelter immediately after.  Watch for another bulletin next week.  *]���  HON. W.T.

Quesnel is going in debt every  month via their water works.  Their mill rate is 20 mills, and  the only way to "get any more  revenue, which they need, is  to increase the improvement  tax from 50 to 75.

'  A mammoth dance is slated  for that date when door prizes  and surprise winnings will be  given out to they who attend.  A drive will be made among  merchants to help out their  unfortunate neighbours. Said  one spokesman, "this is not a  charity drive in any sense.

And,  obviously, a *' low-disability  pensioner will seek gainful  employment in; spite of his  handicap. I should say, any  disabled man will want to work  ��� if he can. There are many  wh6. cannot. What of them,?  How does . the government  provide for their living, their.  existence, when they are unable to provide for?; themselves?  Two basic schemes now exist, one very recently instituted. ^v"ar Veterans Allowance  was begun in 1930. The TJn-  employability Supplement is a  recent, piece of legislation,  passed  at  this  sitting   of  the  House..  If a pensioner desires assistance from either of these  veterans schemes,.he must first  establish that he is unemployable. And the fact that he cannot work must stem from his  war disability. Theoretically,  the unemployable pensioner  cannot be made to move his  home in ^search of suitable  work, so dnability to work is  considered under local conditions. In other words, an amputee who can no longer do  farm labour would not be  forced to move to the city and  take a job running an elevator. ;.' .;  W-V-A is financial aid to  pensioners with less than 35 '  per cent if single, 4*5 per cent  if married. Under W^-V-A, a  married man can draw 1100  dollars a year. Unlike the pension payment, which is hot  subject to a means test, the  W-V-A recipient cannot amass  a yearly income in excess of  the ceiling, 1100 dollars annu-  , ; ;  i  Ideal School  Is One Story  Educators Say  The Province of British Columbia V ".elementary school  of "tomorrow" will provide  the most modern educational  facilities for its children, if  educators have their way.  . ' '���  /This progressive attitude  was reflected-.'.in . the results  of a nationwide "survey of  modern school trends, conducted by the Minneapolis-  Honeyweir Regulator Co. Ltd.  "The Province of British  Columbia's hypothetical, ideal  elementary school would be  a one-vstory stucco building of  "functional! modern \ design,"  containing' 15 classrooms on a  nine-acre site," said' W. H.  Evans, vice-president of Honeywell in Canada. "It would  cost approximately- $305,000,  according to the average of  estimates.  Mr. Evans stated that'"84  per cent of British Columbia's  educators who replied to the  questionnaire indicated that  they would/ specify individual  room thermostats for control  of" heating and": ventilating  equipment. Sixteen per cent,  he said, .favored zone thermostatic  control  of  temperature.  The school executives placed  room temperature controls  last on a list of five* items  which they would eliminate  ������ if need be ��� in the interest  of economy/ r  Use of color in classrooms  was favored by 95 per cent of  the' replies and 81 per cent;  ���specified - Cjplor in corridors.1  Colored chalkboards met with  the approval of 33 per cent.  ally. That is his subsistence  quota. If his income rises  above it, 7 then W-V-A pay- ���-.  ments decrease accordingly,  toy maintain the maximum  allowance, 1100 dollars,  Pensioners having -:'- disabilities in excess Of 35 per cent  single and 45 per cent married  are not- eligible' for War .Veterans Assistance, but come  under the . Un employ ability/  Supplement. A ma'rried man  of 45 per cent' disability immediately receives more than  his 45 per cent W-V-A counterpart. . .a monthly income of  llOQ, 55 dollars.
