Dr D. T, R. McColl drew  member's attention there were  no restrooiris between Gibsons  and Sechelt.  Plans are now afoot to rectify   this.   It is believed   the  present   conveniences  now  in  Union   Park  Imay be  bought  and    distributed    along    the  route-  Ken Whitaker   objected   tot  the mess now being created by-  indiscriminate     dumping     at  'Porpoise Bay- Speaking on behalf of   his company,   Union  Steamships,   Board   Pr esid en t  IE.  Pearson     promised    there  [would-be no more dumping of  } sawdust on company ground.  New bylaws were discussed.  A special meeting of the board  will be called in the hear:.future  to  ^ go ��� thoroughly  into  , them." This was proposed by  Qrville Moscrip.  Fred Mills took exception to  odors "emanating from septic  tanks along the   Selma   Park  , portion of the highway."  Dr McColl will investigate,  but believes, the odor may  come from drainage from the  hillside.  The Trades and Industry  Comlmittee will investigate  charges laid by R. T. Jackson?  ; that peddlers are operating  "within the area without  licence. .  Hew Home  Owners  GOWER POINT. ��� Mr. and  Mrs. Harry Renshaw have  moved into their new home on  Gower Point Road.

Camera Important  But Film More So  SECHELT. ��� Will the person who stole the camera from  out of the car parked at the  Sechelt Theatre, Friday, please  return the film which has much  personal value?  This is the theme voiced by  the lady owner of the camera  which was taken, from her  parked automobile. "The film  may be irreplaceable," she  told the Coast News. "Please  ask them to return it to the  Post Office at Roberts Creek."  She hardly expects to see the  camera again, but has high  hopes the thieves' will return  the film.  Legion Will Hold  Vet Meeting Sunday  ' Air Vice Marshall Leigh  S t.e v enso n, MLA, George  Cruiekshank, M.P.', Captain  Francis Drage, J.P., and Legion Past Provincial President  B. M.

A call has gone out to ..all.  members of Gambier Island  A and N Veterans to attend  tliis meeting. The meeting is  another in the series of united  gatherings when A and N and  Legion veterans get together.  Passing Phase  A recent gem which appeared in the classified columns of the North Shore  Press was caught by eagle  eyed Lawyer Eric Thompson, who has. a sense of humor and is a. quick jmari with  the" pun.       v.. ���/-���/������ y  Stated the classified under the For Trade column:  "One unworn, white bride's  dress for  a baby buggy."  history  A wedding, ihe first ever in  the Gibson United Church was  recalled the other day when  Mr. and Mrs. Harry Winn celebrated  35 years of marriage.  In recalling the eventful day  Mrs. AVinn spoke of the "gorgeous roses which decorated  the church."  "1 remember the church  gave us a. Bible as a momento  of the occasion," Mrs. Winn  said. "My sister was my  bridesdaid, another sister was  our flower girl and my mother*  gave me away."  "There were two ministers  at that ceremony, Rev. P. C.  Parker and Rev. R. C. Scott,  who was the pastor at the  time."

Jules Sehutz, speaking for  the S ;and S Garage, pointed  out his trade was literally  stopped when ears parked in  a continuous line around his  building.  Ken Morton, department of  dominion public works, will be  asked "to restrict parking on  the wharf proper.  Proper regulatory signs will  be placed at the west side of  the Kumagen Cafe warning  cars to wait there for the  ferry.  It may be recalled that Mr.  Morton only recommended to  his department permission be  granted Black Ball to use the  wharf, provided parking would  not be allowed-  Following    erection    of   all  proper  signs  throughout   the  (continued   on page  5)  (See Trade Board)  Playground Fund  Is Boosted  A  PTA  Group  MADEIRA PARK. ��� Formation of a Sechelt Peninsula  P-T.A.

Phone Gibsons 45  ISox 6, Gibsons. ��� British Columbia.  dilonal5  Is  If  rai:  A stitch in time saves nine, and the same may be said for  a hint in time.  From Gibsons to Sechelt and from Sechelt to Pender many  are 1he ears left o\ernight on the edge of the highway without  clearly defined red lights marking their position.  The highway act lays on that vehicles must not be left on  ihe   highway where   they can be a danger or menace to other  traffic.   It provides that person's leaving   their vehicles where  .they interfere with the stream of traffic, are liable, to a severe  fine.  The R-.C.M.,P. are looking with speculative eye on the many  /potential accidents parked along our roads.  Many newcomers to our district are now driving here. They  ���arc not fnvarc Ihat just around the, corner an old Oldsmobile  ���and a. Chevrolet are parked. They plough into the back of these  ��� cars and then the law steps in, trials start and claims for damages'are rife.  There is every possibility the police will attempt to have  ���.���menaces removed from our road�� by means of court trials.  Save your money ��� save your car ��� do not leave it parked  overnight on the highway.  The police, and you, and the world know, there is nowhere  else you can park it, but remember the old army rule ��� park  it somewhere else just the same.  A hint in Vime ...  '*  The News Herald, we wonder how much the Liberals had  to pay for that paper, has just come out with a story about  Gordon Wisrner, Attorney General, and his recent edict about  closing down lotteries because the R.C.M.P. has been cracking-  down.  The News Herald spent a good part of 'two columns to  show why the A.G. was white as snow on the deal. It was the  Mounties to blame." They had to enforce the law. The paper said,  it being a federal low, the A.C4. ha'd just been forced to recog-  .nize the lotteries with advent of the Mounties.  In other words, the A.G. had no idea on federal laws. If he  -Sid he ignored them. If he didn't, how deep can a Canadian  living in Canada bury his head?  The latest handout from the Liberals is a blatant attempt  at telling us we live under several laws, and it depends on the  Attorney General whether we are going to get away with  breaking any or either.  The Attorney General's department is to blame for tihe  ilottery mess we are now in.  'The News Herald, despite its many years of boot licking,  ]?has still to learn when to shut np about a thing that smells  oenough to draw attention without setting up a loud speaker.  Swiss Watch Styles  Now On Display  Smartly      styled      Watches,  'keyed    to   the   new  feminine  fashions for this fall and winter,  were   introduced  recently  by the Watchmakers of Switzerland at a special press-preview for Canadian and Amer-  ? jean fashion writers.  ���    Artfully   designed  as  accessories  for  any  dress  or  occasion,    the   eye-arresting  timepieces  ���  ranging   from  dazzling  creations to  watches  of  tailored simplicity and modest  .stvle   for -business,   home   and  outdoor use ��� will be shown  by retail jewellers throughout  the country during the coming  season.

This was with the  intent of getting the conversation off the number of columns  I should have written and hadn't, rather than with any hope  that he might come vup with  any sizzler I could use. Our  approach to this business of  writing is different. He looks  for news, or an interpretation  of the news, and I just look  for things to write about,  using a method which makes  newspapermen want to  their   brains   out ��� or  most  blow  mine.  As  suggestion  he  gave  usual  the  me   was   constructive...  the effect of the San Francisco  Peace   Conference,  on  the  Sechelt   Peninsula.    It    took  me  right back to high school days,  chen our history teacher pull"  ed things like that out of her  head whenever she figured we  didn't have enough homework.  I told   him  it  would   require  some    thought;    asked    what  brand of reefers he was smoking,  and   if  he  had  any   preference between being shot or  poisoned ��� 'the result guaranteed in either choice.  Hours elapsed, along with  any thoughts I might have had  on any other topic. The effect  of the San Francisco Conference. . .woe is me!  This went on for two days.  I could think of nothing but  that title. Not one tiny, little  effect could I dream up. At  least none that seemed at all  logical, it: wasn't that I had  to write about it. I doubt if  anyone, including the boss,  could care less what I think  the effect of the SFPC and the  SP might be. It just turned  into one of those things that  gets stuck in the mind and  goes- around and around until  you have to do something  about it. In this case the  sticker being that I didn 't  know what to do about it. I  doubted that any of the delegates at the conference would  know either, even if I wired  to ask. In the first place, if  they got as far as collecting a  collect-wire, which I doubted,  by the time they found out  our geographical situation and  decided that it wasn't a -communist attempt to sabotage  the Treaty, the whole affair,  including effects, would be so  much water under the bridge  ��� don't ask me what bridge,  any old bridge will do as long  as it stands and water runs  under it.  Fortunately the problem  solved itself. Quite inadvertantly wi fell into the last act  of the SFPC via the radio. I  missed the first half of the  broadcast while dutifully returning five young birthday  celebrants to their respective  hearts. Along with delegates  from Poland, Czechoslovakia  and the" Soviet Union, I soon  found out that all the haggling  having taken place over a long  period,    this    was    merely    a  k^^JSj&iC C&tJ T-^Tf '<  meeting for final summing up  and formal signing of the  treaty with Japan. Stripped of  its international flavor and the  immensity of the countries and  peoples, involved, that meeting  was a dead ringer for ^any  local meeting where a controversial question is about to be  voted on. Some of the speakers  were clear, concise and to the  point ��� their point. Some  spoke haltingly, groping for  words. Others said the same  things they have been saying  for months with nary a new  note to break the monotony'  of the tune. Someone rose to a  point of order. The chairman  made a ruling and the floor  upheld it. Three delegates  walked out. They walked right  back in again, so the first stir  subsided. There was a feeling  that something exciting should  happen. It didn't. The final  score: 48 for ��� 3 agin and 1  abstainer (The Honduras delegate either had another engagement or a cold in the head  ��� he wasn't there).  Being aware that the world  has shrunk to the extent that  a sneeze in Iran can conceivably develop into pneumonia  in British Columbia, nonetheless, for the life of me, I could  not see how the Sechelt Penin-.  suia was going to enter into  the picture o�� international  politics. An increasing supply  of Japanese imports has been  noticeable for some time. That  is old stuff. So it is with regret  that I conclude that the only  immediate effect of the San  Francisco ?Peace Conference on  the loss' of an hours sleep to  two Peninsula residents.

C.  "It is apparent the Government of British Columbia either  knows of no alternative or has given no thought to finding an  alternative for paying cost of education by means- of a property  tax. We must therefore unite together and make a common  demand to the Cabinet that a Committee made up of laymen,  taxation experts, and educators be immediately set up to survey injustices of present land tax, investigate systems of education employed in other countries and devise, for B.C., a new  and more equitable finance structure for education."  These  were   sentiments   ex-    ������:���   ;, ,���    4  District  of Salmon  Arm   gave  a comprehensive survey of the  situation in School District  No. 20, where they have been  advised the schools will be  closed to their children until  January 1952 because his council had struck its mill rate  based on a figure set by the  Board of Arbitrators and  although a greater sum was  required by tlie Trustees their  District Council was in the  position that no. more moneys  could be raised by taxation  this vear.  6ac/ferlle/ //m  %  expressed by 100 representatives  of city councils, municipal  council-? and farm organizations from all parts of B.C.  attending the meeting spon-  sord by B.C Federation of  Agriculture held, on August  25 at the B.C. Vegetable Marketing Board Auditorium in  Vancouver.  We do not want anther  Cameron or Gold en berg Coin-  mission but a committee that  will include a representative  of agriculture and municipal  councils that will clean the  matter up in months, instead  of years.  On Chairman Alex Mercer's  suggestion the meeting was  opened by a presentation of  the farmer's case. It was first-  impressed on the meeting the  farmers expected to pay their  share of the cost of education  but it should only be their  fair share. They dealt with in-"  creasing cost of education  which had npped school taxes  on farm lands, both municipal  and rural to 300 per cent over  the past 10 years. Added to  this was inequalities between  the dollar taxes paid by farmers and. those paid by other  industries in all parts of the  province. These arguments  were supported by figures of  actual taxes paid.  A letter was read which had  just been received from Dog  Creek typifying a form of injustice all. too prevalent in  unorganized territory whereff  of 20 children attending this  local school only one parent  was a tax payer.  Variation of assessment between municipality and unorganized territory and between one municipality and  another making it impossible  to arrive at a common tax  bet Ave en neighboring farmers  farming the same type of land  and sending their children to  the  sam,e school.  "The only fair method of  paying for 'the cost of education must be based on ability  to pay," said C. E. S. Walls,  Secretary-Manager of the B.C*.  Federation   of Agriculture.  Wages and salaries in  Canada in 1950 were uj3/? six.  per cent while the net farm  income was down 12 per cent,  and that while since 1948 the  .value of all other basic industries in B.C. was up 10 per  cent the net value of agricultural products in B.C. was  down 10 per cent.  Representatives of  some  20  municipal    councils     outlined  problems showing that as fast  as   the   Government   found  a  temporary    solution    to     one  educational    cost    problem    it  created an injustice elsewhere.  What was now needed was an  entirely       new       educational  structure.     The    majority    of  these      municipal      delegates  complimented the B.C. Federation   of   Agriculture   on    the  briefs it presented to. the-Government   last   year   outlining  injustices   prevalent    in    each  district  and   expressed   regret  the  Union  of B.C. Municipalities  was  not  actively behind  the Federation of Agriculture  in  its presentation.

Peninsula and Powell River highways will come in for close  scrutiny at the hands of a special inter Boards of Trade committee now being- set up with approval of the Powell River  ?Board of Trade, and Boards from Sechelt, Pender Harbour and  Crib sons.  in outlining the project, W.    ~~ 1  Sutherland, speaking on be-  JiaJf of the. Gibsons Board at  .si Trade Board convention in  .Powell River, called on all  interested groups to get be-  jfaind the new move.  "Our roads are taking a  aiew position in our economy,"  lie .said. "At one time they  rwere used as Jinks between  ?IoeaI communities and were  -treated as orphans. With ad-  Tent of our car ferry and increased tourist traffic they are  3iow a very important factor in  o.ur .changing   economy  which  ���will be based on logging, as in  ���,the past, and on the new tour-  ���;5st business."  Tlie speaker pointed out  that the Sechelt and Powell  Itover districts were going to  ?be more closely linked following inauguration of the second  leg of the ferry service at  Agamemnon  Channel.  ���"This committee, to be  formed, will be one means of  -unifying our efforts in trying  to get road improvements. But  it will also serve as concrete  proof that the two areas are  now one, with one aim and one  ultimate goal of progress and  jmutnal prosperity.''  ^Sutherland warned that this  ���aiew correlating committee,  ���would have to work through  ?B. M. Maclntyre, MLA. and  mot "go charging off at a tangent in order to get road im-  prwvinents."  A meeting of the committee  -Trill be called for in the near  future.

At the  request of a number of communities, six young dentists,  five of them recent graduates  of two well known universities  and the sixth holding a postgraduate degree in Dental  public Health from the University of Michigan, went into  various districts throughout  the Province to, start British  Columbia's programmes of  preventive dentistry.  For years British Colum-  . bia's parents had wanted such  a full-time service, but many  were the obstacles to be overcome before it could be put  into effect.  First a survey had^ to be  made of the Province's needs,  and they were many. Secondly  the type of programme had to  be decided. According to Division of Preventive Dentistry  Director Dr Frank McCombie,  "Just going out and fill teeth  would lead us newhere. We  wanted' a programme that  would combine education and  prevention along with treatment.''  Planning and organizing  such a programme took over  two years. Special transportable equipment was needed to  get into British Columbia's  more remote rural areas, but  none could be found either in  the United States or England.  A dentist with the Division,  Dr W. G/Hall, overcome this  problem by designing a unique  set of transportable equipment.  HE WAS GRATEFUL  A fashionable Park Avenue  doctor, who was entertaining  Beatrice Lillie, served lobster  salad as the main course, "I  find this so hard to digest/'  said Miss Lillie to her host.  "Do you really like it?'r  "I not only like lobster salad," the. doctor assured her,  "I'm grateful to it."  ��� Reader's Digest  Hicks Ticket Bureau  "TEskets  for AH  Sporting Events"  610 Dunsmuir St- ��� PA 6427  Vancouver, B.

Gordon Wismer, Attorney General of B.C., who  flatly refused to consider an application to hold a beer plebes-  >cite in this village.  Speaking at a quarterly  meeting of the Gibsons and  District Liberals, President  Jules Mainil disclosed this information when discussing  probability of a hotel here.  Mr. Mainil also explained he  had written the Attorney  - General pointing out the position the village was now in  with increased transient traffic and lacking a hotel wherein people could stay.  "So far," Mr. Mainil said,  "there has been no answer to  this later letter."  It is well known at least  two groups are interested in  constructing a hotel here.  One group considered a site  within village limits while the  other has taken a general view  of the situation. It is felt in  certain circles that, provided  a plebeseite were granted and  passed, a hotel would be built  within a matter of weeks.  Negotiation among the several parties which were, at  one time interested in building  here, have fallen off until now  only two are interested.  An option on the property  of C. P. Smith, considered as  a hotel site, was allowed to  lapse recently..This gave cause  to believe the hotel was again  slipping away.  Rumor now rampant has  two firms still interested.  The Gibsons and District  'Board of Trade has been loud  in its cries for increased accommodation here. It recently  passed a* resolution urging the  government in Victoria to  grant all necessary authority  to any bona fide party wishing to build here.  News the Attorney General  had arbitrarily refused con- '  side ration of the plebeseite is  one more item adding to the  already confused hotel situation.  Need for the increase in accommodation has been clearly  brought home to this end of  the Peninsula with advent of  the car. ferry and its increased  traffic flow which often leaves  persons without, accommodation.  Board of Trade commiittee  has been studying the situation  for some time.  It is expected an announcement will be forthcoming following Mr. Mainil's disclosure.  , . . . ~���-  Canadian Given  Magazine Post  "made  out  of  John Henry Pepper of Toronto has been appointed Canadian editor of The Instructor,  a professional magazine for  elementary school teachers.  ���Mr. Pepper, a writer and  teacher, will edit a special  Canadian Department of. the  magazine.

Commissioner Skellett pointed out the present method of  parking on the wharf  a veritable death trap  the whole structure.";  Comission chairman, Mrs. E.  Nestman, recalled the wharf  approach would be slippery  during winter which would  add to the danger.  In widening the road now  used by the cars parking beyond the cafe, Commissioner  Macnicol was adamant in his  contention the village should  not have to "pay the whole  shot."  Black Ball and the provincial government should be interested in this move,'' he contended. "I think the village  could possibly pay 20 per cent  of the widening costs, but that  is all-"  Commissioner Anderson recalled that in an interview he  had with Captain Alex Peabody of the ?Black Ball Lines,  the American operator had  assured the company would do  what it could to help with the  traffic regulations-  B.C.'s  First  Paper  The first sheet of paper produced in British Columbia was  a piece of |brown wrapping  paper made from "Rotten  Jute".

Hospital  Enquiry Board by a Canadian Liegion (B.C. Command) delegation headed by Gibsons Commissioner Robert Macnicol.  This is the third brief pre  sented to the Provincial Government by the Command, requesting exemptions for wives  of recipients of War Veterans'  Allowance, widows receiving  allowance under regulations  of the WVA; they who are in  receipt of dependent parents'  pension paid under regulation  of the Pension Act; dependents of members of the Canadian Armed Forces on overseas service; and other low  income groups not included in  the groups named in this brief.  Legion members presented  their brief in Vancouver, September 19.  One claim made was that  recipients of "WVA, their widows and those in receipt of  dependent parents' pensions,  from federal sources were in  a less favorable financial position jn B.C. than people receiving old age pension and  the blind.  "We feel," the brief said,  "that action to exempt these  groups is long overdue."  The Legion wanted to see  exemption from hospital premiums for these groups and  issuance of a hospital card  .with all.  It? pointed to the increased  cost of living and the ever  diminishing dollar value.  "A token of appreciation,"  would be exempting dependents of men now serving overseas.  One recommendation suggested issuing a duplicate' card  to dependents of WVA recipients.  The brief was very blunt  when it came out and suggested extension of B.C.H.I.S.  to out-patients. "This would  lighten the load of hospital,  accommodation,'' the brief  claimed.  "ft is no secret," the veterans claim, "that strong pressure is being brought to bear  upon members of the medical  profession by patients who do  not aotuaily require active  hospital treatment, but are  desirous of obtaining other  hospital services that would  quite well be rendered to them  without their being admitted  to the institution as bed patient.  "Investigation may prove  there are people occupying  beds in B.C. hospitals today  who could be taken care of in  their own homes, providing  that some type of visiting  nursing service was provided  under B.C.H.I.S. regulations.''  ?Presented by the? committee  to the hospital enquiry board,,  but not given complete consideration by the B;0. Command, were several suggestions from individual units  throughout the province, some  of which suggested the following:  Beds in hospitals should be '  provided for all  who require  treatment   in accordance with  doctor's orders.  Chronic sickness should be  entitled to free hospitalization,  provided the patient paid the  premiums in  good faith.  Deficits of the B.C.H.I.S.  should be met by payments  from consolidated revenue or  sales tax.  Research and training of  nurses should not be carried  by the B.C.H.I.S.  Large   city   hospitals "qpsts  Concentration ��� of the activities of Vancouver General  Hospital is viewed with some  concern.  Chronic cases should have  access to "decent" nursing  homes .0r convalescent wards,  and arranged under the insurance.  Anaesthetics should be a  charge against the fund.  Provided co-insurance has to  remain, the veterans urge that  once it has been paid it should  be good for one 12-month*,  period. In other words, no one .  going into hospital twice or  three times within that time  should have to pay the $35  more than once, provided he  has paid it once.  When a receipt for premiums is issued through a sub  collector's office it should be  "official" and not need confirmation from Victoria.   '  It was suggested the premiums be based on income and  charged on  a sliding scale.   .  Another point was where a  veteran receiving treatment in  a D.V.A. hospital has 50 cents  per day deducted from his  pension, and pays B.C.H.I.S. '  premiums, such deduction  should be refunded to the veteran  by B.C.H.I.S.  A government controlled  sweepstake shoud be operated  and the profits devoted to payment  of B.C.H.I.S. operation.

HOSPITAL BRIEF  (Continued from page 7)  augurated.  The Ijegion urged one of the  main reasons for the present'  financial trouble is the "high  percentage of persons not now  paying  premiums."  The comprehensive brief felt  that no exception should be  granted members of religious  denominations or industrial  undertakings.  A better and  hensive public  partmen.t was urged on the  government, in order to "sell"  the plan to the public in general.  Also suggested was transportation for patients, who  lived outside a hospital service area. ;  Advertising came in for a  blast when the suggestion was  made that the present type of  ads be cut out as only a small  number of people read advertisements of this type.  Extra hospital accommodation should be provided in  lower mainland, areas without  facilities. It suggested economical accommodation, not to be  confused with expensive facilities  of the modern hospital.  The suggestion was made  that a complete review be  made of the exemption list  then, either adopt a definite  one hundred per, cent collection method or ^finance the  scheme by taxation.  Final contention was that  supply houses are now carrying the hospitals and government, which fail to pay on  time, owing to slackening of  receipts.  more compre-  relations    de-.

But that does not let the Provincial Government out from  their responsibilities.  "The provincial government  had assumed payment of hospital premiums for old age  pensioners which was originally a federal pension in part  and was now wholly a federal  one. Therefore not looking  after the veteran in the same  manner was rank discrimination  against the veteran."  Captain  Drage was  complimented by several members of  ��� the    enquiry    board    for    the  "thoughtful   and   able  assistance," he  had rendered.  Said Drage: "We were  treated with absolute and complete courtesy. I cannot' speak  too highly of the manner in  which way we were treated.  We had all the time and kind  treament' we needed to make  our point clear. It was one of  the finest enquiry boards it  has been my good fortune to  meet  55  GAMBIER ISLAND. ��� Plain words marked the B.C. Hospital Insurance Enquiry hearing when Francis Drage, J.P.,  appeared before the MLA group ou behalf of the Provincial  Command Army Navy and Airforce Veterans in Canada.  The Captain made a several       _   point speeh following his presentation of the brief heard at  Vancouver, Thursday.  1. Vetera n's dependant's  should be charged a 'nominal'  hospital insurance premium of  $1 per month.  2. Scored     co-insurance     as  "putting  the  cart  before  the  horse."   Suggested  government would  surance in such an  like  manner.  3. Suggested practice of  using co-insurance as a limiting factor in the number of  hospital patients was evasion  of the point and denied needy  the mu��h needed hospital care.  4. Nurses training should  come under department' of  education. Warned that it was  "quite wrong of government  to use insurance scheme for  training purposes."  5. Suggested unlimited hospitalization was  not  feasible.'  6. Premiums should be deducted along compulsory lines  as payroll deductions.  7. Scored federal government's attitude and handling  veteran's  dependents'  aid.  8. Accused federal government of rank discrimination  against the veteran.  9. Suggested the Government would have to completely  control hospitals, their operation and expenditures if the  government was to continue  the practice of finding the  money for the private hospitals to spend.  In urging the nominal $1.  fee for veteran's dependents,  Captain Drage was lauded by  the committee under chairmanship of J. S. Smith, MLA,  ��� for "the constructive and  practical suggestion."  Committee Members D o|n  Brown and Captain Proudfoot  objected to the Gambier man's  contention that co-insurance  was impractical and improper.  They asked in what way the  government could control the  number of patients if co-insurance were  done away. with.  Captain Drage pointed out  that using co-insurance as a'  filter was entirely wrong in  principle. He contended control of patients was not a  matter for the the government  but one for hospital authorities and the medical profession. -���  ��� Unlimited hospital care was  not feasible, contended the  veteran's representative. He  suggested patients should be  allowed free hospitalization  for the first 30 or 60 days or  some term arranged by the  committee. Following this he  would then survey the patient's ability to pay. If he or  she could pay, then they  should pay, but provided payment was beyond the patient's  means, then it was a matter for  the Department of Health and  Welfare. He pointed out the  parallel of private hospital  plans which operated along  the principle that the. first  few days were free. "This  would be true ��hospital insurance  then," he  contended.
