PENDER HARBOUR One  of the ladies who helped build  Pender Harbour as it is today,  passed away in St. , Mary's  Hospital, August 19, and with  her took one of the few remaining links with Pender's  earlier history.  -Mrs. Susan Page, 76, born  in this area, wais buried in  Pender Harbour Cemetery.  Father' D. Shea, OMI, conducted services. Interment was  arranged by Graham Funeral  Home.  The lady, who saw the first  white settlers come to the spot  now known as Irvine's Landing, was well 'known for her  fount of anecdote and story  of the early days when the  Harbour was noted for its  fishing and great booms, of  logs.

M. Maclntyre, MLA'.  Mr. Maclntyre, irked by long delays in the promised highway, was in touch with Victoria following Finance Minister  Hon. Herbert. Anscomb'rf successful raising of a $35,000,000  loan in  the United States.   :  Following      con versations  with the deputy minister, Mr.  Maclntyre announced the road  would be built this fall and  that lenders would be called  immediately.  The many times promised  road will be put through before the expected falling of  snoAvs.  It ii> known ffrhe engineer,  who AviJl be in charge of actual  construction and representing  thegovernment is now.- on  location.

This marks the third time  this year that surveyors or  engineers have made surveys  of one type or another along  the right of way connecting  the pulp and paper town of  'Port.., Mellon and the huge  Canadian Forest Products  company plant with Gibsons  and the car ferry to the out-  - side. ��� .") .  ;. "\ ' '  Durinsr his Ferry Dav  speech, Mr. Maclntyre was  emphatic the road would go  through, this fall.  The Department of Public  Work's latest announcement  adds weight to this promise.  Residents in Port Mellon  are, despite many rumors to  the contrary, quite optimistic  the road Avill. go through.  "Many of our men are  already adding garages to  their homes," one .company  official  announced.  School Starts  September 4  "Good" news for students  is information that School  will open Tuesday, September 4.  Despite lack of authentic  figures, which will be available early in September,  school board authorities feel  sure there will be an increase in enrollment for  Peninsula schools.  �� Preparing for the expected  influx, and because of definite statistics even now at  hand, the teaching" straff has  been increased to 37 from 35  on the payroll last fall.  Eighteen members   of   the  teaching staff will be teachers from last year, while the  ^ remainderyynlJL be^iiew.  Approximately,'28    new  pupils will be enrolled from  Gibsons   area,   20 from Sechelt region,  and  "around  30," from  other districts.  CORRECTION  A story re charges of wife  beating carried in the Coast  News of August 16, incorrectly  named the man given three  months hard labor as Hughes.  The correct name is George  Rupert Havens.  Outstanding Regatta  in Bright Sunshine  :'  PENDER HARBOUR. ��� This year's regatta, staged Saturday at Garden Bay ha.s been  rated, as history's best.  Swimming, diving, log foiling and bucking, were each outstanding in performance  and thrills.  The.   crowded    shores   were  given   a  real  display  of  the  fishermens' art when gill  netting sets were highlighted  in. the late afternoon. Speedboat racing, following a delayed start, added their quota,  of thrill;?.  Comedy, often of the  impromptu sort, sprang up  throughout the long summer  day while experts in the art  of aquatic stunting took over  for a period during mid-afternoon.  Sponsored by a special committee, headed by Royal  Murdock, th* regatta, was  more or less a last minute plan.  Due to be scrapped this year,  ���the Beard of Trade decided,  at the last moment, to sponsor  the annual affair. There is  little doubt it was a popular  move which paid dividens  financially in fun and in good  public relations for the area.  Alive    to    the    future,    the  Board' is  rumoured   to  make  next year's effort, bigger and  better.  "We will quite probably  have feeding troubles next  year, if -this regatta ii promoted properly," said one enthusiastic member. "Nov,- that  the car ferry is in, Pender  ���Harbrur. is stepping out. The  regatta next year will' be the  -Jiiarhlight of our entertainment  efforts."  There were no accidents  reported during the day,  despite heavy traffic in the  area.  HEAVY FmE  Laurence Crucil, 23, was  fined $300 when he appeared  before Magistrate A. Johnston, Tuesday, on a charge of  supplying liquor to  a minor.  Stanley David Tyson, I9r  was fined $10 and costs for  being in possession of liquor.  Both men were defended by  Earl Da we. R.C.M.P. prosecuted.

Protect tlie Beer  Attempts by citizens of Gambier Island to have a portion  of their green land made into a wild game preserve are laudable  and timely.  Wild game on. Gambier consists mainly of deer. Visitors to  the island spend much time and get a lot of amusement from,  watching and even playing with the tame animals now operating between East Bay, New Brighton and the Harbour itself.  For many years there has been an unofficial game reserve  m this locality.  Every year, when deer season opens and the banging of  rifles is loud on the Island, the deer snug close to the homes  thereon and get protection by their timidity and trust.  Very few on the Island would shoot at "their," deer in  or out of season. It has been known to go hard with persons  who have temerity to shoot within the undefined, yet very  protecied, areas already mentioned.   -  But with the rights of reserve also goes the responsibility.  .The  government cannot be expected,   and neither will it,  proclaim the reserve then stand by while citizens take advantage of the easy shooting.  Only a few days ago a deer was badly wounded, its lower  jaw shot away and its tongue half severed by a high powered  bullet. It is quite possible that this shot was fired by an outsider, but hardly likely.  If and Avhen the government proclaims the south-west  peninsula, then it- will be up to the citizens within that area to  jealously guard and defend the animals against that most inhuman of all animals ;��� man. '  It will be the duty of every man and woman to see that  every other man and women help and protect the deer. A reserve is more than just a place for deer to live. It is a responsibility for every person within the precinct.  Knowing Gambier and the great love the islanders have  for the friendly.deer therein, we can only hope that the Game  Department sees fi't to put the law behjind the deer protection.  But, law or no law, the area is virtually a^reserve now.  Tremendous would: be the slaughter of the Game Department  failed to follow the islanders' request. .     ���  '"' v  Now that the barriers are down, and the world knows the  south-west peninsula is not a reserve, for many and deemed it  so for many years, some protection musit be given.  It is bad enough thjat man thought it a reserve, what is* far  more important ��� the deer also thought so.  need, the Veterans' legislation  is trending towards a kind of  means test.

In a  country that's largely jungle,  taking a census is facilitated  by four-w.heel drive vehicles.  More than; 45,000 hardy census  takers, who have been at work  since July 1, 1950, have counted some 50,000,000 Brazilian  noses to date.  taking the problem right down  to  the   bottom ..rung.   And   at-  this ground level any corrective  measure  must start.  You no doubt know personally individuals who have a  tough time making ends meet  on pension payments. You  may yourself be involved. I  can only suggest you bring  each case to the attention of  your member in Ottawa. He is  there to represent your interest.  One point to bear in mind:  be sure of your facts. Ottawa  has a way of avoiding sentiment in favor of cold facts.  I have tried to outline the  problems facing those who. are  fighting for a better deal for  pensioners: the government'  committee's narrow orders of  reference, , which prohibit a  full discussion of veterans'  representations; the refusal of  the House to consider more  than a Supplementary payment  of additional aid to unemploy-  ables; the apparent trend in  governmental thinking which  would introduce the element  of need into pensions.  It is paradoxical that while  the Old Age Pension scheme  to be introduced next year is  a step away "from means tests  and    payment'    according    tp  istration, their frankly basing  payments on need and the  means test.

This essay contest is directed to our younger citizens to increase their awareness of the importance of British Columbia's  growing Pulp and Paper Industry.  DID YOU KNOW? ...  British Columbia's Pulp and Paper Industry has grown steadily  since 1940. Our pulp and paper products now account for  more than a quarter of the total value of the entire forest  industries manufactured out-put.  Effects of this expansion can be measured in terms of new /ofes  for B.C. workers, and tremendous amounts of fi.C.'s goods  and services bought by the industry. Thus, wealth returned in  payment for pulp and paper products sold abroad ultimately  reaches the pockets of all British Columbians.  ^S��^5T>* "-*"-'- ��  805 Dominion Bldg-  Vancouver,  BC  9  Please  scnd full information  on contest to: |  Nome-  Address���  DUSTRY  lti-'\ Thursday August 23 1951  4 The Coast News  snsnci  Following is a release from  Victoria which-can help clarify some of the contentious  questions ever recurring in  regard to B.C, Hospital Insurance.  Continuing discussion about  The current Hospital Insurance  Service publicity campaign ���  six advertisements have noAV  appeared' in all newspapers,  supported by radio announcements. The current advertisement has as its subject private  insurance plan.  Many people believe that  the private plans were forced  out of business. In effect,  these organizations voluntarily  retired from the hospital field  because they could not compete with the ��� Government  plan.  At the inception of the Hospital Insurance Service the  Government made it clear that  other plans could continue to  operate if they provided comparable benefits }lo those  offered by the Service. Blue  Cross and the other plans  found that to do this they  would have to charged more  than B.C. Hospital Insurance  Service did, and therefore  dropped out.  Reference is often made by  individuals to "the plan I had.  that gave me more than Hospital Insurance Service." In*  every case, private plans  would only take, on preferred  risks, thereby excluding a vast  number of individuals from  participation. Hospital Insurance Service is for everyone  regardless of health, or age,  and its benefits far surpass  those of any other plan.  The shortage of hospital ;  beds is a problem which has v;  been developing over the last  twenty years, but has only  recently been brought to the  attention of the general public  because the Serv-ice itself has  been in the public eye. _  Lack of ready money during depression days was first'  responsible for a lag inV hospital construction. In the war  years that followed, the shortage of labor and supplies  further aggravated the situation. To make matters worse,  there has been a tremendous  influx    of    people    into? NkJM  Province in recent years ^r^ich   placed  an abnosmal str|dn;v:on  existing facilities. yyiy  In 1949 the ad vent, ofthe  Hospital Insurance Service  brought to light the shortage  of hospital accommodation.  Wben the plan started,  people who needed care, but  who in the past would not  have been '-able to afford it,  were able to go into hospital  without the worry of expence.  These people, together with  those who would ordinarily  kave been hospitalised, filled  the hospitals to capacity-     :  Immediate steps y^ere take"  to provide more be^s, and as  a result almost 700 new beds  nave   been   installed   in   two  Years.  ���_���    GIVEN ONL  BREAKING CHARGES  PENDER HARBOUR; Two  men, George Alexander Holin-  I aty> 34, arid John Ernest Gumming, 39, were remanded until  August 30, when they appeared before Stipendiary Magistrate A. Johnston, Wednesday  ���on charges of breaking, and  entering.  Charges arose following  complaint from Gordon Lyons,  operator bf the beer parlour,  that his premises had been  broken into and a certain  amount  of beer  was missing.  The current, prolonged  drought is having widespread  effect on the Peninsula, even  to interfering with scholastic  studies  of  our youngsters.  When construction was  started on the Elphinstone  Senior-Junior High school it  was estimated the building  would be ready sometime this  fall.  Said a school spokesman,  "this drought has stopped the  supply of lumber just ten  days short of the crews being  able to lay tile and putting  on stucco and plaster."  It is estimated the school  will be open "on or near the  first of the new year.''  The. new building which will  cost in the neighborhood of  $300,000 will accomodate both  junior high arid senior high  grades and will be complete  with auditorium, five standard  classrooms, a home economics  room, library, commercial  room and a manuas. arts wing.  It will   closely   follow  the  trend in  eduaation which decrees  that ��� the average . high  school student will not  enter  university,     therefore     much  more has to be taught in the;  high   school   years..    This  includes training  in  wood   and  metal    work,    machine    shop,  home    economics,    commercial  courses  and  laboratory  work.

I-   ii  Hospital Insurance is designed to protect citizens of B.C..against bills incurred for  care during the acute stage of any disease. The acute stage is classified as the period  or periods of any illness requiring treatment normally available only to in-patients  of a general hospital. ^  A chronic disease is classified as a disease which continues for long periods of time  or for life. Chronic disease is not covered by B.C.H.I.S. except during its acute stages.  In other words, if a person suffering from a chronic disease has an acute spell of his ailment  and requires the specialized services of a general hospital, his bill will be paid by B.C.H.I.S.  In deciding whether a condition is acute or chronic B.C.H.I.S. gives the term acute  its widest possible interpretation by saying that when a patient requires treatment  normally available to him only in a general hospital, his case is classified as acute and  his bill is payable by B.C.H.I.S. If however, the treatment required is of the. type usually  given in nursing homes; infirmaries, or rehabilitation centres, the disease is classified  as not in the acute stage and thus not covered by B.C.H.I.S.   ���.. . v  Hospitals list the diagnosis for each patient on admission notices which are filed  ^j^;B.C.I|l[.I^S. Where th<�� diagnosis indicates a chronic condition, the hosnital is advised  with regard to the length of time B.CHil.S. can pay; unless the hospital forwards further  evidence of the existence of an acute condition which would, therefore, be eligible for  additional B.C.H.I.S. coverage.  Many hospitals undertake frequent periodic medical reviews of all patients to  determine if further hospitalization is required. Hospitals are reminded that it is their  responsibility to review patients classified as chronic for any change in~ condition which  could be reclassified as acute and so eligible for coverage.    .  : When a hospital has been advised by B.C.H.I.S. regarding extent of coverage and  there iS'iio further evidence thai a patient can be classified as acute, the hospital then is  responsible for informing the attending physician, the patient, relatives or responsible  parties concerned about the limit of B.C.H.I.S. coverage for thecase. The.hospital is  advised by B.C.H.I.S. in reasonable time to notify the patient or,persons conce  coverage cut-off .date. The. patient or responsible party, mpt tnf?n decid<?r whether? to>  remain in the hospital after the cut-off date at his own expense or move to some institution  designed to care;for the chronic or convalescent condition.    ��� '���������$v]7-\.  Hospital Insurance was not designed to .cover chronic care. To do so would require  tremendous expansion of present services and consequently greatly increased insurance  rates. Hospital Insurance was designed to cover the bills.of acutely ill persons who require  the in-patient services of a general "hospital.  Be sure to read these messages. They deal with your Hospital Insurance/plan, which  has already paid over $40,000,000 for the treatment of 500,000 cases, and is providing  benefits for, thousands more each month.  B.C.

Province which we thought  would be of interest to residents of this  area:  With the opening of the  Black Ball Car Ferry Service,  between Horseshoe Bay and  Gibsons, Howe Sound gets a  bridge and Vancouver a new  suburb. The.new suburb is one  of great area, taking in the  whole Sechelt peninsula and  already is served by approximately 60 miles of highway  stretching from "William's  Landing to Agamemnon Channel, which separates Nelson  Island from the mainland.  Presently, it is planned, another linking ferry will bring  Powell River and its environs  within easy reach of tH.e city.  The communities on the  Sechelt peninsula, and there  are a lot of them, developed  as summer resorts. They are  still summer resorts in part,  but gradually they are be-  comming residential villages  whose citizens enjoy many of  the amenities of urban life as  well as freedom and fresh air  of the country. The new transportation facilities will add  to their prospects and to their  convenience, and will, no  doubt, bring them many' new  neighbors.  Manv Vancouver citizens  will recall when North Vancouver, and later "West Vancouver, were little more than  attractive summer areas. Better, transportation quickly ur-  - banized them. It may do the  same, within. limits, of course,  for the .Sechelt peninsula* ..;.-...-  .But the development r;which;  brings ' increased population  involves new obligations.  Already the Sechelt' peninsula ;  is getting-power service from  Clowhom .Falls. Presently, it  will be. more reliable and com-,,...  piete than-the various local  services now relied upon. Improvements will also have ;to  be made ,to the highways.  Marine Drive and the. Lions .  Gate Bridge are already, becoming inadequate for, the  local traffic that uses them  and the new traffic will'show  up ., their inadequacy ��� still  further. The highway, on the  Sechelt peninsula,. too, will  require attention, and the link  to Port Mellon, an election  football for decades, will have  to be completed" at last** *>>;..*   ���.-..  r     ������_.. ::������������./��� .   .   :.-���      ' '-������:': *a^   V-V^"  West Sechelt  BY MARGARET ALLAN  Mr. and Mrs. Meyers^ had  their son and two grandsons,  Michael and Rodger, visiting  them for a few days.

Thursday Aueriist 23 1951  Much Ado  BY  CHERRY  WHITAKER  Pull your chairs a little  closer children while I go on  with the story about raising  ehickens. If you feel old age  creeping upon you before this  is ended, cheer up, the shawls  are in the left-hand cupboard.  The .mechanical .makeshift  for "ma" failed to thje extent  of reducing the original six to  four babies. We felt badly  about their demise, but the  knowledge gleened from  three different books on the  subject, didn't strike anv answering sparks. There just  didn't seem to be a thing to  do to save them.   .  The    four    survivors    grew  strong    and     healthy.    They  cheeped  ancl   peeped,   fell  in  and  out  of  their' water ,dish  with    monotonous    regularity,  and  by  the  end   of ten  days  were appearing in unexpected  places. It seems that flying the  coop    is   learned  at a  tender  age..   We   didn't   object   too  strenuously until they showed  a marked  preference  for  the  livingroom,  at which time we  smacked an old window screen  over   their   heads and moved  them  outside in  the daytime.  As an idea it was sound, but  small children being what they  are,  and fond of  other  small  creatures I got  a   lot, of  unexpected    excercise    rounding  up the chickens a dozen times  a day. It was quite an engrossing occupation. Even a minor  earthquake went unnoticed in  fche stress   of   one   particular  round-up. I don't really mind  about earthquakes but it was  somewhat    disappointing    to  niss it entirely. Eventually the  Lime   came   when', the   babies  ;vere cast into the comparative  larshness of the hen hen-yard  ;o learn by experience, tough-  less and some trickery to hold  <hieir own among the reigning  ���oyalty.  The following spring a. hen  lid the job of bringing up the.  'oung, andf rom all points of  'iew it was much more suc-  sessful than our effort. She:  ras a wonderful mother. We,  iad to feed them but the rest  7as up to her, until the door,  0 their house was barricaded  t  night.  That hatching  pro-���.,.  uced three Rhode island hens  nd a half Bantam* hen A  We had one hectic, night  rhile "Biddy" was sitting 6h  he eggs. Roused from our'  eds at 2 a.m. by urgent cack-  ngs ringing out on.-the still  ight air, the head of .the house:  Qd I raced madly for the hen-  ouse. The hf-o-h equipped with  yjamas, slippers- and a shot-  un, was decidedly overdress-  1 compared to me  and   my���..  ightgown. A quick search of  le   .yard   .and   .surrounding .  irritory revealed nothing out  u the way till we reached the  oodshed   on  the return trip.  sudden noise froze us in our  ���acks. The h-o-h, pointed the  ictgun at the Woodpile while  shakily   wielded   the  flashr  ght.  (runs make me nervous  ; any time, and even more so  hen    aimed   at an  unknown  ;.rget. I always have the feel-  g that my best friend-might  i in line.  (It's just a feeling  id /has nothing to do with the  ,ct~   that   one's   best   friends  m't   normally   hang around  e woodshed in the middle of*  .e night.) After a pause, .that  emed   endless,  a very   tiny,  =ry defenseless mouse  poked  s   nose  out   from   behind   a  ock  of wood..  Feeling  only  (ghily less intimidating than  ^couple of Boris Karl of fs, we-.  treated hastily to the .other  ile  of the garden to look-in  M If  our future mother.  To our  dismay Biddy was the victim  of the nocturnal prowler.  Highly indignant, upset, and  with a long gash in her comb,  she was most reluctant to return to her nest and get on  with the business of hatching  future hens. Something had  reached a long paw in between  two narrow boards in an  effort to get at the eggs.  There wasn't much we could  do to calm her frazzled nerves,  so we put away the gun, washed my feet and retired. Double  pneumonia seemed certain by  morning.  We    biad   periodic    trouble  with racoons.  They got three  sitting hens and three of the  non-broody   members    in    less  than two weeks. Never did we  see hide nor hair of them, but  found   that   the   wily   rascals  were shiinning, up a post, down  into the hen-yard to carry off  a  bird   and   return  the    way  they  had   come.     There  must'  have been some nice fat 'coons  around  during that time,  but  with the current price of eggs  our    hearts   bled   anew   with  each; loss.  The  present   'stock   consists  of seven pullets and 21 ckicks,  sharing    one    mother.   Where  she puts  them  all  at bedtime,  is a mystery, but when curfew  rings, there are never-any leftovers.  The only indication   of  that seething mass of babes is  Biddy's strong resemblance to  a brigantine in full sail, manned by a mutinous crew.  RADIO NETWORK GROWS  There were 24 stations on  the first National Broadcasting Cpmpany network organized 25 years ago as a service  of the Radio Corporation of  America/, according to Dun-  lap's Radio and Television  Almanac. '  irge Increase  Pleased "as Punch" about  increased membership, Frank  Bird, manager of B.C. Automobile Association, reported  3,362 new  members in June.  "Members are flocking to  the auto club for several  reasons," Mr. Bird explained.  "Augmented staff gives better  service. And motorists are becoming more aware of the need  for protection by personal  accident insurance."  In    his  monthly   report    to  the   B.C.  Automobile  Association    tihe    managers-secretary  said,   "There   are   plenty   of  maps,  tour,books and directories on hand at the Georgia-  Seymour   bureau  in   Vancouver." Here club members may  get route maps for their trips  and  other  travel  information.  "AAA figures show'British  Columbia's club in sixth position, on this,continent, for increase  in membership.    There  are 700 clubs." .  Pointing out the rapid increase in membership, Mr.  Bird said, "In June last year  there were 2,302 new members.  This year there were 3,362,  making a total increase for  1951 of 5,624, and a 'total  membership of 24,838."  Wm.
