New Owner For  jack IWIiite Store  marys Hospital  Has Patient Inereac  The Chairman of the St.  Mary '���,' Hospital Committee  reports that during the past  week the number of patients  has been increased. It is hoped  that this* is a sign* that of re-  r jewed interest in the Hospital.  The committee has s been  studying a number of problems all related to an improvement of the services, offered  by St. Mary's; To further th is  effort, the Chairman^ Col. E.S.  Johnston^ is again appearing  before the Columbia Coast  Misi ion Executive Council in  Vancouver this week.  It appears that' a number of  our .eitizei fe are thinking that  , the Government ds go5rtg to  play Santa Claus, and supply  funds, in addition, to BCHIS,  for the operation and maintenance of Hospitals in. B.C.  who are having difficulties  making ejrds meet. However  this-, is far from-the" truth; .  What appears more likely is  that the Governmei-t will help  those communities that help,,  themselves. St; -Mary's Hospital Committee expects to  launch its- campaign to raise  the promised. $2500 at the  beginning of'March.  Somei  eitimn^,  who   realize  the urgency have already sent,  in.   contributions  topihe.t.Bos-.  pital. Here is a letter from twqi  old    age    'pensipners,?.^ T)iatedf  .Eg-mbnt, Fel? :;3rd�� '*&m��$ addre^-l  ���:sed, to Candm Allan ,<Qreen'{:    1>  ''Dear Mr.' Green, ^W^creaelf  in the Province that there'was>  a possibility  that  the  Pender  Harbour Hospital' might'.' close:  owing "to' lack' of funds; "We  also  heard  that  a member of  the Board,  or something, was  going   around 'asking   people  to   subscribe   to wards   it.

It is���'  only a drop in the bucket, but  we would be glad to help. It  would   be   a. disaster   if   the  Hospital  closed. Kind regards  - from  my   wife   and   myself."  The Committee, has received  a very generous offer from Mr.  Harry   Roberts   of  Wilson  ' 'Citeek, director of the Choral-  ^iers ������ there,    who    are   willing,  without   charge   of   any   ki; d,  , to give a concert in aid of the  Hospital, in the Pender Harbour  Community . Halk-i'.:'  Dr. Tripp is leaving oil. Wednesday to join Mrs. Tripp in  California, and- will, be away  on a holiday for several weeks.  Durii g his absence, his place -  will be taken by Dr. Garrow,  Physician ih.iiciSurgeon, a young  Scot, graduate of St. Andrew's -  University.   We   offer  him   a  very cordial welc��me to Pender  Harbour.   We   aim   wislr  Dr.  Tripp a very pleasant holiday.  erry  The annual problem facing the Gibsons area, that of the  coming season's Ferry Traffic, and where to let it park, was the  subject of a conference between the Village Commissioner^,  i:evera.l members of the Provincial Highway Department and  Col. George Paulin, President of the! Black Ball Feny Lines.   :���-7~ ������- ���'���'  It i& recognized that bad as  the present situation is, it will  be much . more aggravated by  the opening of the Port Mellon  Road, aind by the extension of  the Sechelt Highway.  After surveying the actual  roads' for possibilities of parking, and re-routing traffic, the  group gathered for lunch, and  coni5nu,ed their discussions  later at the Municipal Office.  Many suggestions were made,  but the fii.al recommendation  that will be made to the Pro-,  vinpial Government is roughly  as fodlows: - '  That the traffic going to the  ferry- be required to use the  Fletcher Poad to the Winn  Road, dowi\ the, Winn Road  to Gower Point Road, along'  Cower. Point Road past the  Shell station and down to the  Ferry. .        .  Traffic from the Ferry, it  will be recommened, .'*be required to use the Sechelt Highway. ���'.������-������.-���  To improve -conditions and  avoid further hazards, the  Sechelt Highway, from the  Fletcher Road to; the Church  Corner^ would then .be a oneway street for West-bound  traffic, only.  FiirffterPitzis recommended^,  that the Gower Point Road,,  from the .W.i n n R p a d, bev  wide-iied . a.fc least;\forty- feet,,  and raising '"the level at the-'  pum'n���house. Traffic bound for  the Ferry would be permitted  Mill Rate  Set For Gibsons  The ' Gib.bias Commissioners  have approved the work of the  Budget Committee in presenting their annual statement of  estimated revenue and expenditures for the coming year.  For 1953, the expenditures  'estimated, total $26,210, with  Roads accountm<y for $9,000;  Street Lighting,' $1,000; Fire  Equipment, $2,500; Extension  to the Municipal Hall, $1,700.  This- latter item will be used  for the building of a small extension .to house the Vault, to  provide safe-keeping for the  Village Records, maps and  other documents of value.. This  will be of fire-proof construction. ��� .        "��� . V  The "remainder is made up  of advances to By-Laws., *ad-  vance to Water Capital, Fire  Insurance,  Salaries, etc.  Anticipated   Revenue   is   as  . follows,    Trades   L i'c ens e s,  .$1700;     Gov^-r: m ent     G i-a hts  (motors;), $1800; S.S. and M.A-  Ta^v$6,000;  By-Law, repay-;,  maiit,' $'4250.;   Available' from  previous     su r pi ussesi; ;t'J $4,f>92;  Tax   Revenue,   $7,157.92;   and  the balance; from other small or  reve- ue ������ources,.sneji  as dog-  lieenses, buildimg permits, B.C.

British Columbia.  ti  ilonaid  Oar TO Services  Next week, is National VON week, and because our publishing date is:-Thursday, we beg leave to "jump the gun',' ar.d  present our littlfe word in time.  We here enjoy a rather unusual service from the Victorian  Order of Nurses, in that the Elphinstone Branch has the% last  -'iudependa-ix' post, or Outpost of the VON. All other areas in  ^Canada now are served from a city or center, ar:,d do not have  resident nurses ill the field.  In other cases, the calls, which eomia in for the VON are answered by which ever one of the Nurses is available at that  moment for duty,- and ow'ing to the niature of the work, the same  -Nfurse may not make two consecutive calls to a case. In some  eases where it is dieemed. better for the patient, however, special  arrangements have been- made to permit the patient to be cared  for by the one nurse through a critical pfcriod. This is only rarely.  done, however, as such treatment would require, such an enormous staff the Order would not be ablfe to keep up the demand*  Because of our geographical isolation, such an arrangement  .ihas not been, practical, and perhaps we as patients are the more  :.fortunate. It is rather more difficult for the Nurse   however, as  it places a greater burden upon her, and she is. not able to have  :.the regular hours and the freedom from hours of bookyvork that  .have grown up around the job.  The VON serves us well and faithfully here, and has done  for many years. Let us do our part in this National Week by  supporting the drive for funds to the best of our ability.  Of interest to residents of  Port Mellon, and Gibsons are  the" following questions asked  in the Legislature last week by  Tony Gargrave, M.L.A. for the  MacKe_ fcie  riding:  1- Was a contract let to the  Marwell Construction! Company  to construct the Port Mellon  Koa-d? .  2. If yes, (a) on what daite  was this,- cos.tract let, (b) on  what date did actual construction begin,, and (c) did the  original dontract state a darte  on which the coi struction was  to ,be completed, and if so  what was tlmit date?  3. Did the contract provide  for penalties for noi.r-fulfilment  of contract?  4. If Yes, (a) what were  these penalties',-(b) have these  penalties been levied, a; id (c)...  has the Department of Public  Works considered imposing  .these penalties, as am, aid to  spe'ejdJy compfletion) oif this  project?  5. By what date is it estimated by the Department of  Public Works tiiat this road  will be open to school-bus:  traffic? ���'  ^ Mr Gargra,vffj, in co;mpany  with a great many people in  ���this. fiarea, is awaiting arswers  to these qu&tions.  y^j  On Diets  0r Olaf ^ Tub  *'   ���        fcy Old-timer  With   modem   living,   food  ^qua^kery'is reachinig full f 1 odd-  The /piutrition,   the  vitamibsf  ..the  c^iiories  and now  chloro-  iphyl,   aijd  'crowning   all   this,  -cake    of    tasteless    chemical  abominiations we have the dietitian- These birds are the lai?it  straw, well primed,  at public  ���expense,    -fold    battened    on  itatuos phraseology, their riiuper-  rllieial fii^dings and deduction s  are as faulty as they are foul-  Not  so  many. velars   ago   in  this part of the globe, it was  not a question of what we may  ���.eat, but when where and how  ranch, which, brings ir���to focus  & clear cut memory of Olaf's  ���tub-  01 af   and   his   friend   Otto  ���were beach tramps of culture  <amd  renown.

It never entered my head  that there might be anything  in it besides fisSi but in. this  case I was very much in error  as you shall see.  . We were passing the time of  day with them while waiting  for a Sou'east swell to die  down, and Olaf -$_iidv w^ < had  better eat -mih them than cook  np ,a miilligaiif on the boat-  From a box under the bunk  Olaf produced some hard tack,  coffee and sugar- This and  some rusty tin plates comprised  the table setting. Olaf pulled  a. canvas off of the tub in a  corner and proceeded to fish  around in the brine for something  "quick  like"  he. said.  The first morsel was the  extremely skinny and elongated carcass of a bird,"seagull"  says Otto- This really quickened my interest as seagulls were  more or less taboo. What came  next was a large fat piece of  sowbelly, '' for beans'' says.  Otto, "riot much good for  quick"- The next item was a  codfish which would do "for  fryin.g pan, ve<i''. By then we  were keenly interested in Phe  sitt_siition: and asked Otto what  else he had in it; He moved  back over to the tub and put  his huge paw down* to the  elbow and came up first with  a sea duck not drawn and some  feathers still on it- a piece of  deer  meat,   some  tommy cod,  Editor, The Coast News,  Sir: ���  Regarding "Dubious Dans"  letter printed in the last issue  of your;^aper, I wish to state  that I do; not intend to talve up  ���pace jn~yburmplued paper ;to  ^ns-iv'^r'���'���:��������� nn*>   iimA vf-Tim-wrcr  rTT-r��+  answer;; one ym'd*throws^ dirt  ,whrle! hiding $Jhind a non-deplumed  I consider hi?; letter obnoxious and not worthy of consideration/.

The propos ed recreation  centre will be laid out ons the  property adjacent to that, on  which the present community  hall i6 built: Even, as I type  these few lines the .noise of  clearing can be heard, which  is an indication of both the  i *>ed and the desire to have the  job do'ne in the shortest possible  time.  Besides a ball park for the  'senior teams, men and women,  ��5nd the tee'iir-a-gere*, a suggestion ofi acquiring further  property for the use of tUe  youngsters was proposed- This  of course, in due time, will be  discussed by the members of  the community centre. We are  very happy to think that at  last our teams will be able to  play before .a home crowd,  without going away to play  a home game- Sound* screwy  doesn't it? Anyway, they'll  save rent.  Well, here we go back to  the doings, at the Community  ��� hall, ore of the most enjoyable  evenings in the short history  of the organization was held  last Saturday, on Valentine's  Day.  At first sight, on entering  the hall, one would think ore  had strayed into a miniature  k 1 on d.y.k e night, minus the  beards. The hall was decorated  for the occasion with shooting  gallery, dart board, ring pitch,  ��� fmoits,and   the*1  r>iid  (reliable  bingo.  .Mr*. Oritchell, who was in  charge of games, set the ball -  rolling with a couple of parlor  gagnes. After that, you were '-'���  ", on your own; There"1 was no  charge for any of the* games,  and a prize.was givein; for the  highest score in each.  If there was ' any highlight  of the ever ing,, as there usually  is, my mor.ey .stays it would  be the table on which the ea.fr*  were laid. It was simply loaded  United Church To  Hold Dinner Meeting  The A- n.ua.1 Congregational  meeting of the United Church  in. this area will be held on  Wednesday , February 25th.  There will be a dinner at five-  thirty served by the Women's .  As.vocia.tion. There will be ;no  charge for this. Following the  ���dinner, repoTts of the years  work will be submitted and  officers elected for the current .  year.  The evening meeting La/?  been decided upon to give an  opportunity for a larger attendance. All members, friends,  and adherents should try to  attend. It is; hoped, to 'begin  promptly  at   five   thirty.  There has :so far been' no  response for a teacher tor. the  beginners class in the Sunday  School.

As I See It  by Eric Lindwall  A terrible thing happened tox  me last week, my car refused  to start! I had 4just finished  washifng it a.Ld polishing it up,  congratulating myself that it  was still as good as new. i  climbed in behind the wheel  . a-nd pressed on the starter,'and  nothing happened. Again I  tried and this.time the starter  wouldn 't work. ��� Desperately, I  clapibered out a-nd lifted up  the hood, running my,, fingers  over all-the connections and  begiitfinig to get worried.
