It seems they cannot do enough  for patients in that institution.  Three month's treatment, three  operations and everything that  goes with hospitals cost him in  the neighborhood of $35.  We got into conversation wilh  Rollie Summerfield the other  day, he. is owner-manager of  Summerfield Oil in Vancouver  and a very splendid fellow to  boot. It seems Rollie's dad, J.  Summerfield, built himself a  six-room house on IJpper Keith  Road, North Vancouver, and is  now beginning to4 wonder if that  was the best move.  . The house cost a lot of' money,  it's complete in every detail with  double plumbing, plate glass  windows, copper tubing throughout and all the essentials, but it  is still standing in a district that  pays on the average of $110 per  year in taxes.  Mr. and Mrs. Summerfield, Sr.,  live there alone. They actually  use less- water than their neighbor ��� the neighbor has several  children. The Summerfield wear  and tear on the sewer "system  must be less. He probably looks  less at the snlendid view over  Memorial Park than his_ neighbors, and on top of that, he has  done a local blacktopping job to  his own short driveway that  benefits the city.

Winch, CCF,  MLA sent to the department of Municipal Affairs following  an editorial re the amalgamation of two district lots and Gibsons Village, which recently appeared in the Coast News.  Dear Mr MacDonald: : '  It, is apparent from a communication which I have received that there is a very unsatisfactory situation in the Gibsons  area. For a ��� considerable period  of time, residents outside of the  official. Gibsons area have been  endeavoring to obtain amalgamation. This endeavor has gone  on for several years. I am informed that it 'is the opinion of  many residents that this amalgamation is.. being held up because of the attitude of your, department.  I have the facts to show that  many . requirements have been  demanded from your department  and. that everyone has been met  with the exception of a most re-,  cent demand that a census be  taken of the district. I can prove  that every requirement ordered  by Mr Bracewell, deputy minister, has been complied with.  ILyJny^yi&w: OiXthe ���<��act -that -Xfehe.-  endpavor for amalgamation is  still being stalemated, I should  appreciate ' knowing from you  what is still holding up the amalgamation from your department's point of view.  I hope that this entire question  can be amicably settled without  it having to be raised in the Legislature next session.  An early reply .would be appreciated.  Harold E. Winch.  Increased School List  Creates New Emergency  GIBSONS���-Passage of a half million dollar bill for construction of new schools is still not the answer to scholastic housing problems in this area.  School District 46 Board members were given a half expected  shock  when   figures  for  enrolment   in  the   High  School' were produced following first day at school.   : . ��� ,] ���;:���-���~-��� : There were 91 pupils who answered   first   roll   call,   thereby  creating   an immediate  problem.  Eighty is the maximum number  of pupils who should be   taught  by the three  teachers.  It will now become necessary  to hire another teacher and to  move an elementary class into  the Sicotte property, recently  bought by the*' School Board as  an added property insurance for  the coming high   school.  It was thought, when the property was first bought, that  eventually the high school would  need   it  either   for    playground  Drage Presents  Gambier Gavel  GAMBIER HARBOUR ���Francis  ; Drage, J,P., and George Stiles,  fourth vice-president and president of B.C. command, Army,"  Navy and Airforce Veterans in  Canada, have left by., air for a  dominion convention in Winnipeg- X '    .X���  Captain    Drage    will    present  Dominion president A.

The gavel is a gift  from the Gambier Island unit of  veterans, and will be presented  complete with a royal purple velvet bag, "to make it easier for  travelling."  Sechelt School  Has Room Lack  SECHELT ������ School board foresight paid off in this community following. increased pupil enrolment on the first day of  school.  The board  had recently built  an additional room in  the basement of the present school "just*  in case."    It   must have been a  clear crystal, that room is   now  "It was hardly expected to utilize ..this-���;so.i.soon," one. board  member said. "It was certainly  lucky we had it. We would have  been put to a greater, exnense  hiring and equipping another  building. ���'  .  -. ��� ��� ���     r  filled with grades eight and nine  following the maior increase  which also forced hiring another  teacher.  The boosted enlistment has  raised number of teachers from  five, as of last year, to six now.  Said one board member, recalling the fight over the school  bylaw, "We certainly hope the  people who were telling us about  the lowering enrolments that  were going to come, take a good  Jook at the figures now." .  Local Club has  Successful Year  GIBSONS���A many-point list of  successful endeavors was outlined by Reg Godfrey as he made  his report as past president to  the local Kinsmen Club.  1. Resucitation boards were  distributed throughout the peninsula. "We should be ��� very  proud of this effort," he said.  2. Shellout during last Hallowe'en was a "big success. The  kids are already looking forward  to this year's."  3. May Day parade and float  w;as a winner. "We should have  it every year," he suggested.  4. The musical program. "This  should be repeated next year but  for a longer period."  .;'���--5. Acquiring.a...n��w._-publiG..adr:.  dress system with. the aid of Joe  Schutz.  6. Monthly raffle. "We always  make a little every month."  7. Polio drive. "This raised  quite a large sum of money  which will certainly come in useful in fighting that dread disease."  8. Successful ladies' nights.  9. Fall fair. "This was an improvement from last year. Next  year we will have to make, it  bigger than ever."  10. The   playground   has been  started.     "This will probably be  our main program for some time ;  to come."  11. Halfmoon Bay dance. "We  made nearly $40 from this. That  is a major contribution to our  funds."  12. "The TB committee headed by Sam Nutter, will have to  be a big drive. This is for a  great cause and has always been  well patronized by people of the  peninsula."  Mr. Godfrey forecast a year of  hard Work ahead and urged  members to "support the new  president."  Bushfield Idea  May be All New  GIBSONS���Keith  Bushfield,  son  of our own Rev. Bushfield,  may, as the saying goes, have  something there.  The ex-infantryman came into  the Coast News office recently,  complete with a model landing  barge-truck-and pontoon bridge  which can easily revolutionize  warfare in the future.  ���The complete unit which, when  acting as a landing barge, is  driven with a 10 h.p. outboard  motor can be built for approximately $3,000. It can carry men  or materials or it can be expendable and used a conveyance for  demolition equipment.  Popular Mechanics magazine  will feature a story with pictures  very soon, according to Mr.  Bushfield junior.  "I got the idea for this when  I was 'operating in Alaska during  the last war." he said. "I have  had two star generals and navy  experts looking at itv and they  claim it is sound. All I have to  do now is to sell it to the proper  ROBERTS   CREEK���This   community's   two   room   elementary  school will be the first regular school to be built, according to word received from the School Board.  A notice to contractors calling  for bids on the complete  (all trades) contract has  been  published.  Working  plans are  ready  which  means  that    work   can start immediately following  approval from the Department  of Education.  Preliminary estimates place  construction costs at approximately $40,000.  Local contractors * may bid,  provided they can arrange for  the 50 percent surety bond. Several have intimated they may  join forces in order to handle  contracts   of smaller schools.  A ruling re school contracts  has been received by the School  Board following an attempt to  have contracts split up in order  to  facilitate building.  By recent motion, the Board  had approved clearing of Madeira Park site by day labor instead of bundling it in the .main  contract or awarding a contract  fosXclearing and laying of tile  drain amounting to $400. Bulldozer costs would be roughly  $2,000   while  $200   would   go  to  A.   E.   Ritchey   for     supervisory  duties.  The Board contended the day  contract method would be better and more economical. The  Department of Education ruled  that this,must not be done. Contracts will be let on a total price  basis.   ���"  It is known objections to the  first plan were received at Victoria, from outside the Board.  It had also been suggested that  roads be built into the sites before building started. It was contended this would facilitate construction.  The Department's ruling would  outlaw   these   ideas   also.  Local sub trade contractors  will have to make, their contracts with the company awarded the overall contract. Name of  the company awarded the work  will be listed in the Coast News  early  in  September.  Hunter Takes Office  As New Kin Chief  GIBSONS���-George  Hunter was installed president of Gibsons  and District Kinsmen Club at the regular supper meeting,  in Hunter's Guest House, Wednesday.  Mr  Hunter,   who   follows   Reg  Godfrey, was presented with his  new pin by Deputy Gordon Anderson, who, accompanied by  members of North Vancouver  and West Vancouver Clubs, installed a new list of club officers.  In his preamble to the presentation and installation, Mr Anderson spoke on the responsibilities of being president, and warned  that "the job held much  re-  Teachers Appointed  To School Board  GIBSONS   ���   Following   is   the  final list of teachers and their  ' appointments as approved by the  school board.

He also outlined a recent trip  he took to the national convention in Winnipeg, claiming it  must be one of the most outstanding in all of Canada.  "One of the real values," he  said, "lies in the solidifying influence created by seeing Canadians from all over Canada,  working for one aim and that  an unselfish  one."  District Five, carried home  four of the top five national  cups awarded during the convention. He thanked the local club  for their promise to take control  of the Christmas Seal drive.  "This is a worthy project," he  said, "I am certainly glad to hear  that the Kinsmen will handle it  this year."  Installing officers included  Staff Mosher, North Vancouver;  Edward Johnson, .Tim Connack,  and Mr Anderson, West. Vancouver; and. Vancouver.

Down on  the wharf last Friday night,  meeting the ferry on its 7 p.m.  run, there was a barge tied up  with about,. 30 cars, ready for  town, and sabout another 30  waiting to get on. A small sawmill standing waiting for barge,  three buses, a few trucks, the  inevitable taxis, a large contingent of dogs, several dozen small  ^fry, numberless private cars,  'waiting for their owners, a  couple of hundred people waiting to get on the ferry, a couple  of hundred coming off, struggling through a freight shed piled high with freight, talk about  organized confusion, it was it,  on one grand scale . . . All we  needed to complete the picture,  was a car ferry pulling   in.

Guess  we'll have to take to locking our  doors, something that we have  been very loath to do, seems a  shame to have to start suspecting  people  around us.  Mrs Al Hammond away to Seattle for few days holiday. Away  to town yesterday, got onto the  bus at 5:15 p.m., we sat there  while driver debated whether he  could  get  all  passengers  in  bus  jhi ljjl|| Mil ��� yA&i&s ���fo& Q&ir 0/*&v&f^W^m  MONDAY,  SEPTEMBER  ELEVENTH,   NINETEEN   FIFTY  T^o Big for tlie Work  ELSEWHERE in this paper is a letter from Harold Winch, MLA to the Minister of Municipal  Affairs, R. C. MacDonald, requesting an answer  to the problem of amalgamating District Lots  685 and 686 with the Village of Gibsons.  We predict this will have an effect on the  department, which can react favorably to the  wishes of those people desirous of joining with  the village.  Mr Winch was not idly threatening when  he said he had proof that the department had  been delaying the amalgamation. This paper was  willing to give Mr Winch the proof if necessary.  There were three other gentlemen in the area  who had pr;oof of the department's shilly shally-  ing. These gentlemen, only one had ever voted  CCF, were willing to hand Mr Winch the proof.  We would suggest this is a sad commentary  on the state of the province when good, solid  Liberals have to go to the other camp for help.  We would suggest Mr Winch was not entirely motivated by a thought of embarrassing the  powers that be when he took up the cudgels for  the two  districts.  We believe he did this more or less as a  favour to people who needed help and had come  to him in their need.  We would suggest that local Liberals certainly missed the boat when they stood around  and watched the capers of these small time dictators. That would have been a golden opportunity for the party stalwarts to have cried,  'stop.' They would have looked very good in doing this. They would have been doing what was  only right. They could probably have had a hand  It's A Big Job  GEORGE  HUNTER,. our   genial bakery  man,   is  new president of the Kinsman Club.  That, in itself may not be a great announce-  ���  ment, but it may have far reaching consequences  among the younger fry on this peninsula.  The Kinsmen Club is dedicated to "Helping  Kiddies." Mr Hunter will have to guide the club  forward; ever striving to do more for the children,  ever striving to help them.  ' A lot of money has been raised on this peninsula by the Kinsmen but that money was only  donated by the generosity of the. public. It will be ������  up to Mr Hunter to keep the club name good. He  has a great responsibility as more and more  people say, 'tell the Kinsmen, they'll help.'  Local Kinsmen are proud of their badge.  Well they may be. Theirs is a service of giving  in telling Mr Bracewell just where his pants  were a little tight.  "~ The CCF member certainly never hesitated.  It is this type of opportunism that could easily  beat the Liberals. But even if it failed to do that  it will, certainly help to keep the party so called  strong men in line.  Among men who know Victoria best���the  press gallery���it is whispered that certain departments are pulling the wool over Premier  Johnson's eyes. It is hinted that groups in Victoria  are not quite pulling their weight for the man  who rose from. the ranks in a phenominal and  very lucky sweep.  Be that as it may, proof of the rumours is in  the attitude of our servants. We cannot believe  the Premier' is aware of such petty, trivial spite-  fulness as was shown in this amalgamation problem. We certainly hope he was not aware of that  particular case and we also trust he will not  have later cause to find a like case,  Mr Winch is to be congratulated for his rapid  action. We know the fight will be carried with  daring and despatch to the floor of the house if  amalgamation is not forthcoming. We renew our  faith in democracy by this means.  A majority of British Columbians voted for  the Liberals last election. Following this episode  we are sorry that so many did.  This country has not reached the stage where'  we can give too much power to our servants. They  are not big enough to handle it yet.  We suggest it will be many years before  they are.  for nothing. To many of them, it is the only thing  they do with complete unselfishness. There is a  feeling of pleasure in this. Too many of us- are  prone to keep self to the fore-���all the time.  The Club is going after new members this  fall. We could suggest worse than for they would  like to do something for the community, for the  kiddies, to join the Kinsmen Club.  It will be up to the new president to lead  the way. He, it is, who will have to be an example. It is a lot of responsibility, but club members feel he can do the unit justice. They elected  him president.  Congratulations Mr Hunter and thank you,  retiring president, Reg Godfrey, who did such a  good job unselfishly and without thought of  payment.  or not, then he leisurely drifted  over to the cafe where he did a  little' phoning, came back and  advised those standing that another bus would be along in a  few minutes, and he would wait  for it, and put the luggage and  the excess passengers on it.  About quarter to six we were  ready to take off, when he noticed the lady in the front seat  had her dog with her, he informed her she could not take the  dog with her, she demurred at  this, and sat there with Fido beside her . . .'The bus driver noti-.  fied her he would sit there until  she took the dog off. After another ten minutes of this, she finally got off, bus driver giving  her back her fare, writing a receipt, etc, etc, we reached Vancouver about 6:30. Really we  might be from the "Sticks", but  we certainly expect a little better service than this. If we have  to :mit up with this in the cold  wet days ahead, a trip into town  en the barge will almost be a  pleasure.   Besides   having to lug  Sensible Buying  Best Safeguard  Against Inflation  ONE EFFECT of the government's action last week in lowering import barriers will be to  restrain prices in their current  swing upward, financial observers report. The increased supply  of consumer goods will mean  more competition which, o f  course, will result in holding  prices   down.  This action, it is pointed out,  will not be sufficient by itself to  keep costs stabilized.  According to experts, the current increasing prices   were   an-  _ _iL����� .   heavy-grips and parcels that long  last mile up the wharf, it certainly will discourage trips to the  big city. .What to do? Wonder  who has the answer.  ticipated as the country was already in a resumed boom before  the Korean war started. Because  of the international situation, it  is stated, this'boom will probably  continue for some time.  It is in the interest of both  business and consumers that  prices don't run away, and both  sides can do' much to prevent  .them from doing   so.  Business can help by keeping  prices as low as reasonable profits will allow, and thus stave off  controls which it won't like. The  individual can help by refraining from panic-buying and by-  turning away from price tags  which are unduly   high.  In addition to the real causes  for. the present boom, it can become a partly-psychological state  wherein people run thither and  yon, grab up this and that, and  get ideas of "get rich quick".  At best there will be a strong  upward influence, and only sane  thinking offers any prospect of  keeping it under control..

DON'T SELL YOUR  BONDS  You may need cash in a hurry, and think of selling your  bonds to meet that need. But  bonds that have been saved for  over the years are often pretty  hard to replace.  And there are better ways of  raising the money. Here's what  T. A. Larson, manager of the local branch of the Bank of .Montreal, suggests, "If you want  money for a good purpose, pay  us a call at the B of M. Your  bonds will serve as security for  one of our low-cost personal  loans, and will assure you an  appreciably lower rate of interest than for a loan without such  security. As a matter of fact, the  interest on the bonds very nearly covers _+he interest on the  loan."  ,B of M personal loans can be  repaid in easy, regular instalments. By making use of this  service, when you need cash in  a hurry, you will protect* that reserve fund you're building for  the future. The next time you  need money on short notice talk  to Mr Larson.

Test Possible Solution  o Dental Deterioration  THE  COAST NEWS,  Monday,  Sep*.   11x1950  C-35  THE CISCO KID  rides   to   adventure   every   Tuesday   and  Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. Cisco and  Paneho invite you to join tlicm by tuning  to . . '.    7zKW#>efflm  1  nRSTWmm:$BHHf  POSSIBLE solution to the  alarming state of dental health  in this district is seen in the  tests being conducted in various  cities in the United States on  the use of fluorides in the water  supply.  In their natural state, fluorides  in drinking water harden the  enamel of the teeth so that decay is reduced about 65 percent.  The fluorides, which are colorless and tasteless, must get into  the enamel while the teeth are  growing. Constant use of fluorin-  ated water by children up to  about 16 .builds armor plate that  causes the low decay rate to  continue through life. Fluorides  won't stop all tooth decay, but,  dentists say, will so harden teeth  that when drilling does have to  be done it won't hurt so much.  Many municipalities are adding fluorides to the city water  when nature doesn't put them in.  Already 30 of them are delivering fluorinated water, 36 more  are installing equipment, and at  least 30 others are considering  the plan.  In 1944 the Wisconsin State  Dental Society appointed a committee to determine whether "added fluoride" and "natural fluoride" .are identical, and whether  any ill effects come from "added  fluoride". At the University of  Wisconsin, Dr M. Starr Nichols,  professor of sanitary chemistry,  made exhaustive experiments  and reported that artificial and  natural fluorides in water are  identical and that artificial fluorides in mixtures of one part  per million could do no harm.  While some cases of brown stain  on teeth were reported, scientists agreed that less than 1.5  parts  produced no stain.  In March 1945, the Wisconsin  Dental Society unanimously recommended fluorination, and the  state board of health gave its  approval.  The first Wisconsin city to get  going with artificial fluorides,  reported, after 44 months, that  fluoride works best when children start using ; it . at an early  age. Kindergarten children's  feeth improved 39.6 percent,  fourth-graders 24.4 percent,  eighth-graders 18 percent. (Three  and a half years of experiment  by^ the Canadian Government in  Bra'ntford. Ontario, show an improvement of 47 percent in five-  year-olds and 23 percent in children aged five to  16.)  The full 65 percent reduction  in decay that is predicted will  not come until children have used the water through the first 14  to 16 years of their life.  Meanwhile, many cities, encouraged by the results, are beginning to act.  One point that is stressed:  Sodium fluoride cannot   be safe-  Wa Morgan's  mimm/M  ly added to' waier by the homeowner. Mottled teeth may result  if too much is added. Besides,  the chemical is highly poisonous  when  taken in large doses.  The majority of- cities and  towns depend on surface water  supplies which contain almost no  fluorine; it occurs chiefly in  water from deep wells. The addition of fluorine will eliminate at  least a third of the dental wreckage which costs so much to repair.  The cost of adding fluorine to  water is almost negligible. Dry-  feeder machines which put measured, amounts of sodium fluoride  in municipal water supplies are  readily available ��� they are also used by the milling industry  to add bleach to flour. A machine to care for a city with the  population of 3000  costs $350.  Sodium fluoride is an inexpensive chemical. Enough to  treat a year's supply for one person costs about ten cents. Researchers think another chemical,  cheaper than sodium fluoride,  will turn in the same results.  This is sodium silico fluoride, a  by-product of the phosphate-fertilizer industry. It promises to cut  the cost of water treatment to  less than three cents per person  per year ��� perhaps the greatest  health bargain ever offered!  Results of experiments carried  out at two cities on the Hudson  River in New York State reveal  most graphically the rapid decline in' dental problems which  can be attributed to the addition  of fluorine.  Two nearly identical cities c  were selected for the trial: New-  burgh and Kingston. Both are  on the Hudson River, 32 miles  apart; they are the same size  (about 30,000); they have the  same number of grade-school  children (about 3000); both have  municipal water supplies virtually free of fluorine. Checks  showed decay rates in the towns  to be the same. Fluorine was  added to Newburgh's water and  Kingston  was  left   as   a control.  As a preliminary check, a team  of . dentists started examining  school children in both towns.  There was good reason for working with children. First, children's teeth decay rapidly. Second, children were readily available for examination in schoolrooms, where dentists could  work with portable equipment.  It took a , year to lay the  groundwork for the experiment. -  Meanwhile, complaints poured in  from Newburgh citizens. Fluorides in water were discoloring  saucepans, hurting the flavor of  carbonated beverages, causing  digestive upsets. One old lady  said the chemical had dissolved  her false teeth! There was only  one thing wrong: These complaints came before fluorine was  introduced. There was none after feeder  machines started  ad-'  ding white, powdery sodium fluoride to the-' water supply on  May 2, 1945 ��� at the rate of 1.2  parts of fluorine per million  parts  of water.  Each year thereafter children  in both cities got annual dental  checks. Recently preliminary  findings were reported���the experiment will not be completed  until 1955. At the end of each  year's examination, Newburgh  figures showed a decline in decay rate while Kingston remained constant. At  present there is  "So you have to run home as  usual?" scoffed one of the group  at the bar as a timid looking  little man rose to leave. "What  are you, a man or a mouse?"  "A man, of course," replied  the little fellow with dignity.  "What t makes you so sure?"  demanded the other.  "Because," he explained, "my  wife is afraid of a mouse."  30   percent   less   decay   and   the  trend  is still downward.

Yet that same council will sit  ^back and beef about lack of'-publicity and urge everyone to get  out and sell North Vancouver.  We know the assessor, by his  oath ip sworn to evaluate according to a set of rules. It's not  his fault. But it certainly is the  council's fault for not allowing  a tremendous reduction when  they sit as court of revision.  I never thought North Van  would be heartless enough to  practically break a man for living in a normal $110 tax area. We  would suggest this type of taxation is OK when it is aimed at  restricting, like the area where  the mayor lives now or where  Archie lives but hardly in a normal working class  district.  If Alderman Christie McDevitt  wants to use his influence as a  newspaper man and city father,  here would be one good chance.  Excuse me now ... I don't feel  well.  May we point out a small matter to the lady who wrote in saying: she thought we were trying  to be insulting when we mentioned her husband recently in  this column. There is never any  doubt about our being insulting.  When we are, which to date has  been never���at least in this column ��� there will not be any  doubt.  * We mentioned her husband  because he is well known here  as a man of habit and well liked  by all who know him. He is  good "copy" for any column of  this nature and as far as we were  concerned any mention of the  gentleman in question was made  with a smile of pleasure in  knowing him.  That was not an apology, just  a statement of our view on the  matter.  Local Girl Wed  In Vancouver  CAIRNS Hall, the smart appearing log building on Main Street  between 32nd and 33rd Avenues,  was the unique setting for nuptials, which united Rita Lucille  Fletcher, only daughter of Mr,  W. Fletcher of Wilson Creek, and  Robert Lee Macleod, youngest  son of Mr. and Mrs. H. Macleod  of Vancouver and Wilson Creek  on Saturday last. Officiating was  the Rev. Burg Holder of Mountain View church.  The bride was given in marriage by her father, Mr. W. Fletcher. Miss Eve Bradshaw was  the bridesmaid, while Mr.  George Meswitch acted as best  man. ^ After the ceremony and in  the same hall, about 40 guests  sat down to refreshments, including a three-tier wedding  cake. Mr. Harry Rivett gave the  toast to the happy couple.  Dancing was enjoyed and  musical items rendered to complete the evening. The bride and  groom left later for a honeymoon  trip to Seattle.  Mr. and Mrs. Macleod will  make their home in Vancouver  where Mr. Macleod is employed  in the contract department of  Woodward's department store.  A cablegram of congratulations  from relatives of the Macleod  family in far away Scotland was  handed to the groom a few minutes after the marria'ge ceremony  had taken place.  Mrs A.
