Payment to the contractu'  will have to be every 30 days  based on a 75 percent progress  report.  The village will not approve,  of the estimate in its letter to  the Department of Public  Works.  Road Commissioner William  Skellett was against approving the bid. "We should just  send in the estimate to Victoria and ask them to approve, then the way is. clear  for us to accept," he said.  Commissioner Harley Anderson urged appro vino; the  bid new "then there will be  no hitch with the government.  We need to get on this work  as soon as possible. Let's lose  no more valuable time."  Commissioner Rjnbei^t Macnicol failed to appear at the  Village Council meeting but  he. left several letters outlining  his views.*  One, dealing with the public  liability insurance sought by  council to cover itself in case.  of public parks and sidewalk  injuries was shelved as "being   too  much    involved    and  $4,335  not making very much clear."

Far greater than any ferry, traffic or trucks question, is the  water situation in this village.  Headlands needs water. But what is just now coming to light  in certain quarters of our population is the fact that the old  .part of the village is in equal need.  Figures on the pending water bylaw are still not clear - a  very rough guess will place the cost at $50,000. This will be  divided in such a way that more recent parts of the village will  have to pay for new pipe installed in that particular part while  less Avill be paid by the original village owing to that part already  having its main feeder pipes installed.  Few will really object to this. The older village has already  paid for its distribution system. It would hardly be fair to ask  it to pay the cost of buying distribution pipes to be laid along  various streets In the new areas.  This will lighten the old villager's load and place the heavier  portion where it rightfully belongs.  In deepening of the main reservoir, installation of a larger  pipe to replace the cannery pipe, repairs to the lower reservoir  ��� and installation of new mains with which to serve the village,  ���costs will be even'ly distributed over a period of years.  There is no doubt the water supply now "enjoyed", by the  ' -.village is hardly good enough.  Gar Jens  are  going  dry,  lawns  are  dieing,  housewives  go  to the tap and find nothing coming out - and it will get worse.  The troubles with the water setup js not temporary. They  are the results of old age and  overgrowing. Both these will  increase with every week that passes. v  It has been said that $50,000 is far too much, just to give  water to a few people along the bay. Nothing could be further  from the truth. ���������" * , .      (  $50,000 will be spent in such a way that every single person  "in the v.'llage of Gibsons will be assured of water in sufficient  ��� supply for at least the foreseeable future.  There can be, and there niust not.be any talk of, let Headlands pay for the water, they want it.  Headlands and 685 should no more be charged for the complete cost of new cannery pipe and the many other important  renovations to be made, than Gibsons should be charged for all  .the Sechelt Pen:.nsula highway. , -  When the water bylaw is placed before you this fall. Let  mo question   of sectionalism or petty dislikes or plain lack of  knowledge interfere with your decision to place an affirmative  vote on the little piece of paper.  If you are in doubt about the costs and values and relative  help   this   planned bylaw will be to  each of you   individually.  Drop a line to this paper following annoucement of the bylaw,  and we will do our best to clear the most important question  ^ever to face this village.  . When the time comes ��� be sure you buy water for yourselves^ for, tomorrow.  V..��te No, and you will remain thirsty. ���  Reader's Right  DANGEROUS CORNER  Editor, The News.  ��� Sir:  Gibsons holds the setting  ��� for a serious disaster with no  '������one seeming to do much about  It'.  Assuming the Sechelt Highway runs north and south, a  bus has the habit of parking  on the east side about a bus  length from this corner. At  the same time an automobile  parks on the opposite side just  /back of the "No Parking"  sign. This can be seen every  day..  The effect of this  is to re  duce the width of the highway to an extent that a car  coming around the corner  from the village and gathering  speed to negotiate the hill, is  forced out into the centre of  the road to, risk colliding with  a down coming car that is also  forced into the centre because  of the  parked  ear.  The risk of hitting a pedestrian also applies as he too  is forced to walk in the centre  of the road. If an accident occurs the driver will probably  have to take the blame.  ���  A Visitor.  The atomic bomb may mean  the end unless we make a new  beginning.  BY CHERRY WHITAKER  There must be an easier out-  ' let for creative endeavor than  writing. I^hink I'll try painting, .x.the  interior   decorating  kind. On second thought maybe I'd better not. Just remembered that I dropped the paint  tin the last time that urge for  new  and  shiny  walls  hit  me.  The    tin    was    three-quarters  full.  Green-hair is  rather unbecoming to any but the very  young, and there is something  about perching atop a . ladder  that starts me thinking about  how itchy "a plaster cast must  be when it's hot���the weather.  Dressmaking must be a vejy  satisfactory     occupation.     To  turn a few yards of  material  into  something that  gets wis-  tled  at.  It's something  I  can  get   very    enthusiastic   about  ���  whenever I get    lost    in    tfie  yard-goods dept of any store.  In  fact I  can  turn   out  some  extremely attractive things ���  that  is as  long  as  I  am  not  allowed to cut the material or  sew it together.  Somewhere  between my intentions and the finished product  peeular   things   happen.  In   fact they  start happening  immediately    the  . pattern    is  spread  out on  the floor.  You  think the floor is not quite the  place  for a pattern?  Possibly  not,  but  I  have   found  those  pieces   of  fragile   tissue   have  wills of iron. They like it on  the floor and lacking the leadership qualities   necessary  for  persuading them their place is  on   a   table,   I   have   found   it  more satisfactory for us all to  start out  on the floor together. A useless concession on my  part. The A, B, C, D and E's  of   that    pattern   ;may   know  -what they are  doing but it's  a certainty ^ don't.. Even; now^:  I could puV my hand on three  collars and a sleeve that didn't  seem.   to    belong     anywhere  after I finished making nightgowns for the small daughter.  Cutting the  pattern is only  the   first   round   of   a  losing  battle.  It's very disconcerting  to  find   that   sewing   pyjama  pant-legs  together,  the  wrong  way, makes them a little awkward to wear. And it's positively uncanny the way a supposedly straight seem can zig  and zag.  No, I think it would be well  to leave dressmaking to the  experts, and confine any sewing ambitions to patching  denims. The patches don't  stay in long enough for enyone  to notice whether they are  zige:ed, zagged "or straight.  Gardening, would be a rewarding outlet. But there are  two main requisitites ultimate success. Green thumbs and  a sympathetic understanding  of the ways. of worms and  aphis. T have thumbs, but they  aren't green and. I think I  have too many. Worms are  very interesting citizens. They  plough around underground  doing useful things to the soil  and they make appetizing  lunches for the birds, but  somehow I feel unhappy in  close proximity- to them. As  for aphis, extensive research  leads me to believe, that lacking green thumbs, a stiff  course in guerilla warfare is  essential. Even the richest soil  %  ���<  N010N6&&A mmTzxz  developes pernicious anemia  to an extent where it's difficult to tell which is the palest ��� garden or gardener ���  ;so that is  out.  Ah wheel, 'twas a happy  thought while doing the thinking, but for practical considerations it might be well to  stick ; o words. Thiey can be  coaxed to do what'is'-required.  They can be pushed around,  rearranged, chopped up, added to, thrown out or lost in  dozens of languages, but there  is a lot of satisfaction to be  gained the few times they say  exactly what they -are supposed to say. Let the painters  paint, the dessmaker sew and  the green thumbs garden. I  can-see that I shall have to sit-  back admiring them and writing about them. What a life!

Children In White  To Greet Quillayute *  A patch of color will be  added to Ferry Day festivities  when school children from  Gibsons attend arrival of the  Quillayute on August 11 at  approximately  11  a.m.  It is expected the children,  "w!ho, we hope, will be all  dressed in white," will sing  the national anthem when the  car ferry arrives.  This idea can serve a two  fold purpose according to the  committeev in charge.^of arrangements: It will add to the  beauty of the scene, also give  the smaller children an opportunity for a ring side seat  during the ceremony to be  performed on the wharf.

M. Maclntyre, M.L.A.  The story reported Mr. Mac  lntyre as saying, "Couples  with a total income of $100 a  month or less need not pay  hospital insurance.  "When in receipt of the  B.C. Hospital Insurance bill,  simply write a statement to  the effect that your income is  $100 or less per month, and  you will hear no more about  "if."  Many residents of the Peninsula took the impression  that Mr. Maclntyre and the  paper    meant    that    hospital  ��� benefits would be received in  ��� spite  of  non-payment   of  pre-  miiurns.

Kesth Cutler An  Pensions  (Continued from last week.)  We'll glance at current pension payment rates as they  compare with present-day requirements for food, clothing,  shelter, etc., In other words,  how much does a pensioner  receive, and is it enough to  live  on ?  We must first disregard  pensioners who are ^gainfully  employed and able to augment  their - government payments  with earnings. That is a vast  question, but one which necessary takes second place to the  problem of persons unable to  work and dependent solely on  pension payments and additional  assistance.  The 100 per cent pensioner  ���whether he works or not���  currently  receives  125  dollars *  a month  if he is married,  94  dollars if single. This scale is  based on labourers pay in  Eastern Canada, the standard  for all pension payments. It  compares with the most recent  average industrial wage as  follows: married pensioner's  monthly cheque, 125 dollar;  average wage 45 dollars a  week or roughly 200 dollars a  month ��� a difference of 75  dollars.  Basic weekly foodcost for a  family of four ��� again the  latest available figure ��� 25  dollars, 95 cents. Rent of  course varies, and you will  have as ready an estimate as  I have. But a recent Canadian  Legion survey gives the figure  40 dollars a month as absolute  minimum. We might go on and  detail   clothing   requirements,  fuel and light, furnishings,  comforts of a ��niscellaneous  nature., .but already we have  exceeded the pensioner's ready  source of : income with just  food and shelter! A month's  basic diet for a family of four  is over 100 dollars. We can  consider an absolute minimum  for fewer people of 75 dollars.  Therefore, our pensioner  pays 115.dollars a month for  his roof <and his food...and  he has 15 dollars left over  from tHie pension cheque.' The  average industrial ' worker  could live at the same standard, paying 115 dollars a  month for essentials. ..but retaining 85 dollars from his  monthly pay-check."' ���"  ' (Continued next week.)  |  I  i  I  i  I  I  i  i  j^^y^g  s^T^SMj  I  |  I  i  1  i  I  1  Dr. Dennis Bullen  i  I  and  Dr. Bruce MacEwen  DENTISTS  Gibsons B.C.

A letter from a Vancouver  firm advising that hardwood  chairs were available at $5  each with $8 for one with arm  rests was filed by unanimous  approval."  The suggestion and the  money, $100, had been earmarked by Commissioner Macnicol to buy the seats.  . Said Clerk Robert Burns.  "If you are going to spend  money on office equipment, it  would be to better advantage  to buy an adding machine or  some of the other important  items needed here."  Despite Mrs. Nestman's urging to inspect some "second  hand bar-room chairs which  are - for sale, both the letter  from Vancouver and the idea  were filed  away.

Conway, consulting engineer, now being  retained in order to expedite  installation of a renovated  water distribution system here.  Initiated by Commission  Chairman, Mrs. E. Nestman,  the round table conference,  complete with previously prepared maps and drawings  "will go a long way toward  clarifying just where we are  g'oing."  Plans, arrangements and  negotiations with the engineer  were initialed by the Village  Clerk and seem to be still in  the  hands  of that  official.  Following the "nil," report  on his department by Water  Commissioner James Hall,  Mrs. Nestman advised she had,  on her own initiative and in  view of the serious water  shortage, stopped all sprinkling, "at least until the rains  come."  Clerk Robert Burns reported on leaks on the main line  along the government road  from Bal's Hall to Standard  Motors No.  2.  The clerk reported that several water connections have  been made without hi-s office  being notified. This will be  remedied immediately.  Chris's Variety Store  Opens in Sechelt   .

In B.C., the rates paid to different hospitals depend mainly upon two main factorss  I. the services given.  i 2. the facilities   available. ' ���  In some cases, smaller hospitals do not have the facilities to treat the more complex  cases. As a result, they send the patients requiring more extensive care to a larger hospital  which has the necessary facilities. Since the maintenance of these extra facilities is something the smaller hospitals do not have to contend with or normally require, they receive  a lower rate than those paid to the larger hospitals in the larger areas where there is a*  constant demand for these extra facilities. ���  '���  "Why has the rate gone from $6 in 1948 to $13.60 in one of the larger Vancouver  hospitals?" is a question often asked. ~ , . .  In the first place, the charge of $6 was for room, board and nursing service only.  In addition, the average charge per patient for X-rays, operating room, drugs, medicines*  bandages and other additional services was $4 per day, making a total of $10 per day.  Municipal and provincial per diem grants of seventy cents each per patient day  averaged $1.10 per day and brought the actual payment in 1948 up to $11.10 a day.  (Municipal per diem grants apply only to municipal residents hospitalized).  The difference of $2.50 a day between 1948 and now is due to the increased cost of  wages and supplies.  In considering the rates paid to hospitals, one point can not be repeated too much���  the daily rate paid on behalf of the patient in B.C. is all-inclusive. In most hospitals  outside of B.C., the rate charged is for bed, board and nursing service only, and then  extra charges are added for all the other services. In B.C., the daily rate pays for all these  services and in the vast majority of cases, there are no extra charges.  The fact that B.C.H.I.S. payments are all-inclusive must always be kept in mind  when comparisons are made with hospitals outside of B.C. In B.C., our rates range up  to a high of $13.60 per day. Accounts paid by B.C.H.I.S. in other provinces and countries  show that rates range as high as $25 per day.  Generally speaking, we in B.C. stretch our hospital dollar as far as, if not farther  than any other area on this continent. '������.���"'  Next week, we will discuss "What is the financial story of B.C.H.I.S.?"  Be sure to read these messages. They deal with your. Hospital Insurance plan������  a plan which has already paid over $40,000,000 for more than 500,000 hospital cases, and  j is providing benefits for thousands more each month. *  B-.C.
