We expect to see all our friends from  near and far turn out that day  to enjoy 'themselves and take  in the scenes of beauty that  are  Pender Harbour".

School Board District 46 advised by Architect Harold  Cullerne, will apply to Victoria  for permission to call for tenders to replace the present  inadequate cover.  The Board will try for. a 10  year guaranteed style of covering.  It was suggested permission  had been given for the present  roof in order to get total costs ���  under the bylaw figure which,-  in turn, would allow the green*  light  for   awaroVig  the   construction  contract.

NewDay Dawns  There was .a time when Sechelt/Gibsons and other coastal  settlements were but "whistle stops "along the rugged coastline - isolated from Vancouver, the jumping-off point for  American and Canadian tourists and considered too far afield  for industrial development. In those earlier days residents were  content to see this part of the Pacific Coast lolling-in its undisturbed slumbers. Little did they realize that a day of awakening was to come.  That day is here. The whole southern coast north to pulsating  industrial Powell River is on the verge of being stirred from its  Rip Van Winkle sleep. Decentralization of industry today offers  this favoured area a potential future even beyond our present-:  day conception. Development of power resources - practically  .unlimited in these parts -could well be the forerunner of worth-  ���/Readers- Right-  ANSWERS LETTERS TO ED.  '  EDITOR THE NEWS."  "SIR.   v  ' . ���y.\ .,':'������  I have read with interest  * your-editorial regarding, formation of the-Canadian Rangers,  also a letter from an old friend  Dean Miller and in your last  edition letters, from Ex-  Service and Vox Populi.   .  As. one who played.a small'  part in tihe Ranger movement  I  should   like   to   say   a   few  words.  I  agree  with .you  entirely that as yet it.is too early  and   that   circumstances   will  bring the., movement to  being  when the time is ripe. Further  I  agree  distiiicily  with  Dean  ���that-the Pacific Coast Militia .  Rangers rendered  outstanding  Service  and% that   in  time   of  danger it will arise, again. The'  appointment    of    the;  Pacific  Coast Militia Rangers blpl commander Lieut. Col. T.A. Taylor  to the new movement gives a  momentum and experience that  this valient soldier alone could  give. There can be no question  that ,Ex - Service  gives wise  '  and true advice to the Govern- ���  ment in his remarks regarding:  DbriY Look  ivhile projects which would provide new payrolls, Hew commerce.;.^treatment-of the Veteran arid  and greater population. ' ���  On the non-iiiduistrial side of the picture, the greatest immediate development will be the logical expansion of our tourist  industry. Great possibilities are offering with the forthcoming  'hind-sea highway from Vancouver, .yet we'wonder,, sometimes,  if wc are fully cognizant of what this portends for the?future of  the Peninsula. As a weekend holidayer from Vancouver observed,  "You-folks are in a forest area in-more ways than one - you're.  so close to the forest you can't see the trees/'. Perhaps he was  not being facetious. Perhaps we require'to be "needled" into  ' recognizing'the'new era tha.t is opening just ahead of us.  .  The opportunity'is here for the whole' Sechelt P'eninsula to  capitalize on the gifts bestowed upon us by nature. We-have the  climate, scenery and> the atractions tha^t draw tourist dollars like ���  a magnet. We.now have the accessibility to Vancouver for both <  the tourist an$-.vehicular traffic.  Let lis not.lose, our new-found opportunities by default; Let.  us plan now,'.through'business organizations, ratepayer's groups  c.nd other channels,'to let the world know what-the: peninsula-  offers. Let us.brjng our light out from under the bushel and make  .mre thatjYo .opportunity for industrial and tourist development'  7s lost.

''���-.*  With the adjournment of the House of Commons until Fall  fth'e greatest snub to Veterans by any Parliament in Canada since  ':military pensions were instituted, has been offered by the present  .^regime. Through restrictive "orders of Reference" the Committee on Veteran's Affairs was a farced and despite all opposition,  uhe very questionable Bill 650 has become law.

Brief Re  Gibsons Bus Run  Following is the self explanatory  brief presented-,by B.C. Motor Transportation Ltd., to the Motor Vehicle  Branch of the Public Utilities Commission in order to protect itself  against the application of Sechelt  Motor Transport , to obtain a  "closed doors" . franchise through  West Vancouver to Vancouver.  ��� B.C. Motor withdraws that portion of its application which deals  with service from Gibsons Landing  to Hopkins Landing. It appears that  Sechelt'Motor has a license' to give  this service and is willing to do so  after withdrawal of the. water ferry  from Granthams; Landing.  NATURE OF PUBLIC NEED  It would -be more convenient for  bus patrons travelling beyond  Gibsons, if they'did not have to  transfer from bus to ferry and from  ferry to bus at Horseshoe Bay and  'at Gibsons; and particularly at!  Horseshoe Bay where, because buses  cannot go on the wharf,. a long  walk is involved.,Similarly, it would  be more convenient for passengers  originating their journey at Horseshoe Bay or at Gibsons by water  ferry, if .they c6uld> take their places  arid, put ;their baggage on a bus  at the point of origin'and not have  to-walk and carry their baggage  from ferry to bus at the other side.  POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS  One solution is that B:C. Motor  might run its bus on to the ferry to1  deposit passengers from Vancouver  at Gibsons and load .passengers  bound for Vancouver. Passengers  going to or coming from beyond  Gibsons would transfer from bus  ' to bus at that Roint. B.C Motor  favours that solution and has applied to give that service.  'Again, alterriativiely, Sechelt  Motor might run- a so - called  "through", service, i.e., the same  bus from Pender Harbour to Vancouver, or B.C. Motor might run a  so - called "through" service from  Vancouver to Pender Harbour and  return.'.Sechelt Motor favours itself  to run a "throueh" service and has  applied to do-that. B.C. Motor does  not favour that scheme and has  not apnlied to. do that..  ARGUMENTS FOR "SECfifetT  MOTOR : ���  y '  , Sechelt Motor Transport has only  .two points of any substance in its ���  support of its application: (1) that  it has pioneered the Sechelt Peninsula, and, (2) that the so-called  '"through" bus service will be an  overwhelming convenience to the  . public. ,!  The first point is easily disposed  of by the history. If Sechelt Motor  . has pioneered Sechelt,Pacific Stage  ;-jijines has pioneered the Horseshoe  'My. route," and is  still  pioneering.  it, at a loss. On the second ,point,  let us examine the two propositions.  PACIFIC   STAGE   ^PROPOSITION  '%'.    Pacific   Stage   Lines   proposes  to  meet,  the  new  ferry   condition  and the new demand for increased  convenienee by the public by running its buses on to the .ferry at  Horseshoe Bay and making a turnaround at Gibsons;, depositing passengers there "and picking up passengers there bound for Vancouver.  Travellers for points beyond Gibsons  would   transfer   to.  Sechelt   Motor  buses at that point. v  ' Multiple ticket purchase is not-  necessary; "through" tickets purchased at point of origin are com-  . mqnx between inter-connecting carriers."' . " .  ; .The privilege !of sitting, in the  same bus all the way from Pender  Harbour to,'Vancouver is a doubtful" one; most passengers will leave  the bus for reasons of their own at  convenient stops in any event.  SECHELT  MOTOR'S  PROPOSITION ,  v Let   us   examine   the   so-called  ��� "through". service   offered  by   Se-  : chelt" Motor. All that can be meant  by "through" service is running the  same bus^ all the way. The Pacific  Stage Line's proposition is a through  service in every other sense. Thete  are to be .no gaps in the bus nd'e,  such, as existed before the advent  ���! of   the   car   ferry.  What,  are   the .  prospects  of  riding   in  the  same  bus an* the way? ;   ^  In the first place, it effects onljr.  :>thps.e! people.' whose-'journey  takes  "them beyond Gibsons Landing, so]'.-  ���>fhat- at 'best Sechelt Motor.'s j?ro-;.  position-flia^be'scifliie-adyants^e to.  'only irity per.'cent of the travellers; v  Secondly,  even  for these WjSeoole  the  "through"   service   offers   no  v  saving in time.

BRIEF  (Continued from page 3)  ted by delay at Gibsons because of  the time-allowance required to make  - a meet with the ferry and for Gibsons passengers to board or alight  from the bus.  Thirdly, it is almost certain that  at times when travel is heavy, i.e.,  at -    weekends,      especially,      the  "through"   bus   from   Garden   Bay  will become overcrowded as it approaches Gibsons and there will be  standees, and these people will be  glad  of   the   opportunity,   if  it is  offered   them,   to   transfer   to   an  overload bus at Gibsons. Thus trans"  fer   is   not   eliminated   for   many  people even under the scheme pro-  .   posed by Sechelt Motor.  The same thing applies in reverse  to the outgoing crowds. It is reasonable to assume that more than  one bus will be required and tha.t  the 'buses   will  contain  passengers  _,     going   to   Gibsons   only,   and   that  upon reaching Gibsons a reallocation  will, take place so that only  one  or   two  buses  proceed  nortli-  ���   -ward. Again, some of the passengers  .   must  make a transfer at Gibsons,  v even under Sechelt Motor's, scheme.  . EFFECT OF pJs.L. PROPOSAL ';"  The Pacific Stage Line's proposal  can have no adverse effect whatsoever on the present or future business which Sechelt Motor enjoys  or may expect to enjoy in the area  pioneered and served by Sechelt  Motor on the Sechelt Peninsula.  If P.S.L. is deprived of the expected revenue from the ferry passengers, or any part of it, it is obvious  that   P.S.L.   cannot   carry. on   its  ' Horseshoe    Bay    service     without  drastic   cuts   on   schedules   or   increased  fares,  or both.  This would have a seriously det-'  ���   rimental effect  on   the  residents  ���" v 'oi^'-"*^^  ' those  resident west  of  WeH"'Bay   "  in the Cypress Park, Eagle Harbour,  Caulfield,  Fisherman's Cove, Glen  Eagles, . Whytecliffe and Horseshoe  Bay area as well as all those Howe  Sound points, other than Gibsons,  connected with Horseshcje Bay by  water ferry, e.g., Squamish, Britannia,'Port Mellon, Gambier, Bowen  Island.  One might reasonably expect  serious complaints from these  people under those circumstances.  VIOLATION  OF PRINCIPLES  Motor Carriers oin this Province  do not .have the opportunity to  fight for their rights by':.democratic  1 competition; they are regulated.  The Motor Carrier Act, therefore,  wisely and specifically states that  the , Public Utilities Commission  shall foster sound economic conditions in the transportation business (section38), and may consider  the effect which the granting of  any license may have on other  operators  (section 7  (2)   (b)).  It is submitted that Sechelt  Motor is asking the Commission to  violate this principle. There has  been no serious suggestion at any  time that the service provided by '  P.S.L. has been anything but'- the  best. Yet Sechelt Motor now proposes to the Commission that he  shall increase his business very  materially at the direct expense of  P.S.L. All the passengers whom  Sechelt Motor. -��� proposes to carry  between Gibsons and Vancouver  are now being carried by P.S.L.  It would be difficult to find any .  clearer case of an application to  give service in excess of the service  already-provided by existing facilities. To grant such an application  would, it is submitted with respect,  be a flagrant violation of another  cardinal principle, of the Motor  Carrier Act (section 7 (2) (a)).  CONCLUSION  P.S.L. recognises that bus transportation via the proposed new*  vehicle terry would be more convenient to the public.  P.S.L. therefore respectfully urges  the Commission to refuse Secnelt  Motor's application to- operate over  routes now being served by PJS.L.  and to commence carrying passengers now carried by P.S.L.; and to  approve P.S.L's application to turn  arouhd at Gibsons Landing instead  of Horseshoe Bay,. continuing )to  serve the , same customers as at  'present.  It is submitted, with respect, that ���  the foregoing arguments are unim-  ' peachable. Sechelt Motor cannot  be .allowed to- .cut. into B:C. Motor's  routes without serious damage fto  the public service and to- P.S;L:  and violation of the principles upon  which the Motor Carrier ^Act -is  based. r  If the service to .the public cfeV  mands a bus on the ferry -:and;Jit  might be convenient to some people  some of the .tir&e >- P.S.L.

To control abuse of hospital benefits*and therefofe-  help relieve the bed shortage.  2. To keep premiums as low as possible by charging a  small sum %q those who actually receive benefit.  . ' One of the main problems in any hospital insurance plan is that s^iiie p^^Itevi^! v  abuse the benefits. They will go to hospital when they don't need to; aiid will st^loii^t1  than they should. This situation results in overcrowding oi* hospital beds, and increased  i costs. Co-insurance was started to help control this situation.  '���    ���''.������������' !  Co-inSurance is designed to reduce the patient's length of stay in hospital and-therehy-'  make more beds aVailaiileVand in the long run reduce costs. Unfortunately there are soiti'e  people who; because they^ pay a premiuni, feel that they are owed something that they/  can onlycolle^t by occupying a hospital bed for as long as possible. People who'pay fire'  insurance do iiot^^ waipit a firevnor when they pay automobile insurance do they hope for'  an accident. In each case, the insurance is protection against soniethihg which is hoppd*  will never happen. -  Hospital Insurance is protection against the expense of future illness. A protectipii;  however, designed for those who arle really, sick and not fo^ those people who wish' to enter*  hospital on any excuse solely because they paid a premium. Hospital accommodation'  is intended primarily for those who need skilled professional care.  The co-insuranee rate is^^ deterniined by the hospital's public ward rate, and ranges  from $2.00 to f 3.50 a day, for the first ten days of hospital stay; The most any individual  or family group (which includes all listed dependents) will pay in co-insurance for any.'  single year is limited to ten days co-insurance charges. Regardless of how often a person1  ��� (or his dependents) may go to hospital in any one year, only a total of ten days co-insurance ���  ':  may be charged.  ���''   V   '       ' . "���'.:.���     v. ������' ������;"��-. ....  In addition vtiri> controlling abuse; co-insurance will help to raise money to pay for the  '���   higher hospital costs. Without it, premiums would be even higher than they arfe today;  "with it, the highest standard of care can he given at the lowest reasonable cost to everyone'  by making a small charge to those persons actually receiving benefits.  Tt isvthe wish of the government to keep operating costs  of the plan,  arid  also1  , premiums, as low as possible. Co-insurance will help to do this. *"  The next article in this series -will deal with the question'"What are the facts of; the  hospital bed situation?"''

In this week's issue I notice  your editorial comment regarding a letter/received by the  Board of Trade from the Y-O.  N.,  concerning,, school, affairs.  I am . somewhat  puzzled'������as;  to the source and origin of the  letter. I have been a member of -  the   Board   of   the   Victorian  Order,    Elphinstone    Branch,  since its inception, and. over a  long term of years have missed...  very few meetings. I think  I  am  right   in   stating  that  no  letter   sue*h   as   you   describe  was  ever authorized,  or  even  discussed,   at   any   Board   or  general   meeting.    And   it   is  highly improbable, to say the  least, that our Secretary would  write  such   a   fetter  without  definate   instructions.  Aim   I  have the honor ,tp be the representative    appointed    by   ihe  Board of Trade to the V.O.N;;  I think it most likely that, if  any  message  were  wished  to  be1 conveyed to the Board of  . Trade ,.from  the. V-.OiN., the  Board  of  Management  would  have entrusted it to me.  The Victorian Order of  Nurses for Canada, of which  the Elphinstone is a Branch,  Was under its charter and bylaws very definate -duties and  responsibilities. We of this  Branch have always, done our  best to discharge those duties;  never yet perhaps with one  hundred, per. cent success, but  with the loyal support we have  received, from local residents  we have been able to makci  I hope, a worthy attempt. But  any   interference ' with   policy  bf ��� Boards  of  Trade,  School  Boards or,jother.' elected public  body, is definately not part of;  the duties 'or .privelege> of any  ��� Branch.' of the Victorian .Order.  I cannot imagine the present  Board of Management, nor any' ���-  past  Board,, being   guilty   of  such a breach as you suggest.  More   than   that,   I 'think   it  likely/that if they felt the need  of;;any information' concerning  school board affairs they would  contact ;tihat  Board  directly, .  especially in view of the- harmonious  relations  that  have  existed between the two bodies  for many years.

C.B.R. by ex weekly  editor L.C. "Les" Way.  A fifteen minute programme  beamed to the rural districts,  it deals with oddities in the  weeklies throughout B.C.  Herewith is the portion that  deals with this area.  GOOD EVENING NEIGHBORS, this week I'd like to  open with a special greeting  ���to the folks at Gibsons and  along the Sechelt Peninsula,  the southern part of the main-  . land coast that's on the verge  of industrial and tourist development. I spent the weekend holiday up there as the  guest of Bill Sutherland and  Sam Nutter who- publish The  Coast News and whenever 1  get around to visiting different  parts of B.C., it makes me  wonder why so many British  Columbians hurry off to distant places for holidays. I suppose it's the old story about  distant pastures locking greener. But here in B.C\we've got  so many wonderful places to  visit, all rich in history and  , romance of  the e*arly days.  There was a time when places  like Gibsons and Sechelt were  quiet,  t sleepy    whistle    stops  along the coast, and I imagine  that's the way the, early settlers preferred to have it. But  today, this part of the coast  is getting ready for great, industrial and tourist expansion.  The government is developing  power  resources  around  Sechelt, and later this month the  new car ferry will start operations across Howe Sound. This  is going to turn the wole area \  from Gibsons to Pender. Harbour into a real tourist mecca.  And one of these days when  you   decide   to   explore    this  part  of the coast,, make  sure  you (take   a motorboat  from  Qibsons , over    to    Gambier  Island.    There,,   at    (xambier  Harbour,  you'll discover one  of  the  most  unusual  placjejB.  It's   the "Veterans    Memorial  Hall built in 1947 by five old  soldiers of the Island who are  members  of/ the Army,  Navy  and    Airforce    Veterans    of  Canada. The hall is a friendly  place to relax and enjoy the  companionship of the islanders,  I met the president of this  Veteran's Group, Capt. Francis  Drage, who was head of the  Gambier   Island Company   of  the Pacific  Coast Rangers in  the last war and who won the  DSO in the show of 191��- IS.  1 also met some of his execu-  : tive  including Jafek Adkins,  Joe Mitchell and others - all  veterans who run the Memorial  Hall  strictly ;on a  volunteer  basis. In fact everything about  the building of the Hall was  voluntary - even to the furnishings froin top to bottom which  werie,, donated    by    various  Canadian manufacturers.  Captain. Drage, by the way,  is also president of Gambier  ���Island:-Ratepayers and serves  as Justice of the Peace on this  friendly island. He was telling  me that his JP duties aren't  so onerous because the islanders  are a pretty law-abiding crowd  but once in awhile a fellow  gets out of line and comes before him  The population of the Island  is just over 100 including 5  children. There's no school  there, so the kids have to be  transported by boat every day  to and from the school at Gibsons. What a pieasant way to  go. to school! lneidently, Captain Drage and his* fellow -  veterans are mighty proud of  the gallery of portraits of  world - famous leaders that,  adorn the walls. They include  men like Roosevelt, General  Bisenhauer, General Smuts,  Churchiy, Governor General  Alexander - to mention but a  few and each of the photographs are personality autographed and donated ,to the  veterans. Actually, I went up  over the holiday to do some,  salmon fishing, but luck wasn 't  witli me - as far as the fishing  was concerned. But I considered it a foritfnate experience  to visit Gambier Island.which,  \I learned, was named by Captain Vancouver after one of  his mates, and it viras tjh.e last  place he stopped before continuing down the coast to discover Burrard Inle> and. the  site of what is nojvv Vancouver.
