 Provincial  LIbr  JUST FINE FOOD  DANNY'S  DINING; ROOM  Gibsons ^.Ph. 886-9815  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published  in Gibsons,   B.C.      Volume 15, Number2(|,   June 29, 1961.  7c per copy  Big turnout expected for celebration  EMO organization  set up for distri  Blake Merrick of Powell River  Civil 'Defence, co-iordinator for  this area attended a meeting of  the Gibsons and District Civil  Defence in the Legion Hall,  Thursday,  June 22.  In introducing (Mr. Merrick,  Wes. B. Hodgson, Civilc Defence  officer of this district said Civil  Defence is somewhat similar to  a doctor. When people are not  sick they don't need a doctor but  ���as soon as a sickness or disaster  becomes serious they call the  doctor and expect him to come  on the double and have with him  all the answers and the cures.  Like the doctor, Civil Defence  can only function to the extent  of  public interest  and  training.  Mr: Merrick dealt extensively  with the "11 steps "to survival"  the Emergency Measures Organization now known as EMO, and  the need for training to be prepared for any  emergency.     *  When answering the question  of radioactivity effects, he quoted Dr. E. E. Massey of the Defence Research Board who said:  "The particular kind of radioactivity we are most concerned  with is gamma radiation. This is  much like X-ray. It travels in  straight lines with the speed of  light and will penetrate opaque  material.  "One prominent feature of radioactivity, * which comes about  from the very fact of being radio-,  active, is that it gradually de-'  cays. Every radioactive substance has its own rate of decay  which is expressed as the time  required to half .of its activity.  This is called the half life.  '' "Fission products being a mixr  ture of many radio-isotopes have  no definite half-life. The half-  life increases with age. Its decay  is more complicated and the decay can in general be expressed by the statement 'For a sevenfold i increase in age the acti-,  vity of fission products is decreased  tenfold.'"  To other questions Mr. Merrick suggested that courses in  first aid, home nursing, rescue  and other courses could be organized this coming winter if  a sufficient number could be enrolled.  In answer to a question relative to the organization and preparedness for the Gibsons and  District area, Wes. B. Hodgson,  Civil Defence Officer for - the  area said:  "While we are not 100 percent  prepared, we are organized to  the extent . that we could cope  with most emergencies. We have  at this time 43 members who  have signed the Civil Defence  Attestation form and each one  has been assigned to the unit  for which he has practical experience through his usual work.  Each unit has at its head a director capable of directing and  controlling such unit in case of  emergency.  "Actually, we are not so much  concerned with atomic attack as  we are with being prepared for  local disaster or emergency for  if we are prepared for local disaster we are naturally ready to  an extent for other emergencies.  j$)bctor.aHugh.

Earn badges  at Sechelt  On Fri., June 23 the 1st Sechelt Scouts and Cubs met on  the beach in front of Cpl. Payne's  house. This being the last meeting of the year, several proficiency badges for Cubs and an  investiture for Scouts took place.  With permission of the Scout  and'Cub leaders, the boys invited  their parents and families for a  beach party.

Regular  meetings are' being held, and  four lucky Cubs will be chosen  to go in the Dominion Day parade at  Gibsons.  After the last meeting, the  pack was treated to strawberries  and ice cream by the cubmaster.  Port, Mellon Scout Troop will  also be represented in the Dominion Day parade by some of  its members.  , Regular meetings are now cancelled for the summer months  but scouts are advised to watch  the Port Mellon post office bulletin boards for notices of special meetings, hikes, camps, visits,  or other summer activities.  Parents are advised to notify  the scoutmaster by the beginning of July if any of their Scouts  want to attend camp this summer. Suggested date is around  ���the first week of August.  Mystery Man  This may or may not look like  the Mystery Man who will promenade the Kinsmen Park area  and the Square Dance during,  the  July 1 Celebration.'  The mystery man will be identified by someone asking "Are  you the July 1 committee's Mystery Man?" and at the same  time displaying a program. If  the questioner is lucky he or she  will receive an envelope containing necessary information to obtain the $10 prize from committee officials.  Th mystry man: will roam the  Kinsmen Park grounds from 2  to 4.p.m. and the square dance  area from 7 to 9 p.m.  Holdup help  swim ciasses  President Charlie Mandelkau  of the Kinsmen Club of" Gibsons  announces a total of $270 collected as the result of a "holdup" on the Sunshine Coast Highway last week. The "holdup is  the Gibsons Kinsmen annual  drive for funds to provide a  qualified swimming instructor  for the  children in  this area.  This year the Kinsmen are  working in conjunction with the  Sechelt Club on this project.. Victims from the "hold-up are advised that the Gibsons stickers  will be honored in the Sechelt  area.  .. Mr. Brian McDonagh of Vancouver has been engaged as  swimming instructor for this season. Applications for instruction  are available at Gibsons Ele-  mentaiy School and Charlie and  Terry's Shell station. Mr. McDonagh would appreciate it if  applications forms could be completed as soon as possible to enable him  to   arrange  schedules.  Gibsons Kinsmen thank the  motoring public for its continued support 'in this community  project, and the Port Mellon  Association for the substantial  donation from them.  : AH is  set for  Gibsons July  1  Celebration.  Here is' what one can expect.  The best and biggest parade  yet^held.  The most spirited campaign so  far "held for selection of the Mermaid Queen.

The largest number of prizes  so ffar offered for any July 1  celfebration.  According to latest estimates  the float parade will have approximately 50 entries, according to the committee working on  this feature.  4s regards the queen contest,  Chairman Don Andow reports  " th<5 demand for extra tickets by  some of the candidates has been  surprising. Who will be the lucky  girl will be announced from Kins  men Park platform following the  opening ceremonies. '  Ballots will be available, for  the queen candidate up to 9 p.m.  Friday night. At that time all  books must be turned in to allow scrutineers to decide which  of the four candidates will have  the largest number of votes. Candidates are Pat Smith sponsored by the Kinsmen Club; Kay  Louden by Elphinstone High  School Band; Myrna Inglis, the  Kiwanis Club and Diane Feidler  by the Gibsons branch, Canadian  Legion.  The parade will have the Elphinstone High School band  along with the girls marching  team which has been practicing  diligently for its part in the day's  festivities. There will also be  Scouts, Cubs, Girl Guides and  Brownies in the parade along  with the Canadian Legion color  party.  Invited too, will be Sechelt's  May Day Queen Jo Anne Robilliard and her entourage. Last  word was that she would attend  and take part in the opening  ceremonies on the Kinsmen Park  platform.  Older folk will again this year  be able to see the parade from  comfortable chairs at the School  Sechelt firemen seek help  In the area protected by the  Sechelt Volunteer Fire Brigade  there have been 151 fires since  1952 of which only four buildings  were a total loss. Only one life  ha> been lost in that period. To  d��(te in 1961 there have only been  three fires, all of them of a minor nature.  Sometime during the first ten  days of July the men in the  white helmets will stage their  annual drive for operating funds  in the areas of West Sechelt,  Ejist and West Porpoise Bay,  ^S-ljna Park, and Wilson Creek.  ^Tff_''bWhdaries"of the area' protected are from the Girl Guides  Camp east of Wilson Creek, including Tyson Road to the Western boundary of West Sechelt including Mason and Old School  Roads. The areas of East and  ���West Porpoise Bay outside the  limits of the incorporated village are also included.  Owing to the %change over to  automatic telephones the Brigade  is faced this year with an additional annual expenditure of $800  for installation and operation of  the fire alarm system. The firemen are also endeavouring to  set up a nucleus fund for purchasing a much needed fire  truck at some future date.

Roberts  Greek Bed Cross workers,.- some  10 or 12 who meet regularly, invited a like number who take  work to do at home, and celebrated their satisfactory year's labor with a friendly party.  The secretary, Mrs. B. L. Cope  was presented with a casserole  and stand in appreciation of her  consideration in having fires  burning warmly well in advance  of the meeting time. When she  was unable to do this chore Mr.  Cope obliged.  The quantity^ of beautifully  made articles sent to Red Cross  headquarters by this small group  is quite imposing. This year's  output was 9 quilts, 101 sweaters  297 pairs socks, 27 pairs pillow  cases, 19S diapers, 296 children's  garments and 5  men's shirts.  Mrs. R. Mitchell is this year's  president and Mrs. E. Hall,  works convenor.  All of the workers have taken work home to occupy spare  moments daring the summer.  Meetings will resume in Septem-  ~bev.  MONTHLY EAKE SALE  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary, Gibsons branch will hold  its monthly baking sale on Sat.,  July 8 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the  ��� small shop opposite the barber  shop.  \  rs. Jermain replies to deputy-minister  Hon. Eric Martin, minister of  provincial health services and  hospital insurance, Victoria, has  been flooded by letters of protest from residents of Pender  Harbour and the surrounding  area at the proposal to close St.  Mary's Hospital.  In reply, the writers of these  letters have received from Mr.  Donald M. Cox, deputy minister  of .hospital insurance a long letter outlining the views of the  department in the matter.  Mrs. K. E. Jermain, chairman  of the _Pender Harbour Hospital  committee, which is spearheading the move to prevent closure  of St. Mary's, has replied to "the  deputy minister, dealing point  by point with the various statements contained in the deputy,  minister's  letter.  In order that the general public, and in particular the writers  of the protest letters may be  made acquainted with the facts  as presented by the committee,  here is Mrs. Jermain's letter:  Dear Sir: Thank you for your  letter of June 21. May I ask that  you will be good enough to present the following facts to the  honorable  the minister:.  The proposal to construct a  new hospital was set out in the  brief presented to B.C.H.I.S. in  November 1959. The facts contained therein were gathered up  to six months prior to that date,  and the forecasts based on those  facts have not been realized.  The main reason for the brief  was the assumption that occupancy of St. Mary's Hospital  would rise from some 5,700 patient' days in 1958 to approximately 7,000 patient days in 1963..  Occupancy, however, failed to  reach even the 1959 estimate, being 5,100 instead of 5,900. In 1980,  the figure was 5,200 instead of  "6,200, and in 1961 it will be 5,250  instead of 6,300.  The expected rise in occupancy  has not materialised, and it is  our belief that, if the brief were  presented today, with correct  figures on occupancy and corrected statements on the condition of the hospital, your department would not entertain the pro  posal to build a new hospital in  any part of the area. It is even  less likely that the department  would have given approval in  principle to such proposal.  To examine the alleged faults  and shortcomings of St. Mary's  Hospital, may we deal with these  in the same order as contained  in your letter:  1. Accessibility by water: St.  Mary's Hospital is accessible by  water in all weather. The uphill  carry is not much over 100 yards  and is perfectly feasible. The  proposed-new location at Sechelt  would make the use of an ambulance an absolute necessity in  the case of seriously ill or hurt  patients. Also, the elapsed time  would be longer before the patient reached the hospital.  2. Accessibility by auto is adequate. A road.right to the door  would be quite inexpensive to  construct. The fact that it has  not been constructed would  demonstrate that this point is  relatively unimportant.  3. Fire hazard: The building is  of   frame   construction,   as  are  most buildings, both public and  private. The fire marshall's instructions have been carried out,  and his recommendations followed to date. The hazard is perfectly normal. If it is not so considered, it is reasonable to question why the hospital has been  permitted to operate up to the  present.  4. Doors and corridors: Doors  are regular hospital size. Wider  corridors would be an advantage,  but the matter of turning a  wheeled bed has not hitherto  been considered an insurmountable problem.  5. Healing: The heating plant  has been completely renovated,  and is adequate to the building.  6. Plumbing and sewage: The  plumbing has, been completely  renewed, the work having been  completed as recently as this  present month. Sewage disposal  is adequate, and has posed no  problem, although a septic tank  should be considered. Present arrangement is no hazard to health  Hall corner. This arrangement  has been handled each year by  the Farmer^' Institute and the  Sunshine Coast Fair Board members.  Ballot draw prizes will be announced at the dance on Super-  Valu parking area at 8:30 p.m.  when stubs will be drawn from  a barrel and five lucky persons  will receive cash awards.  r  The program draw will take  place at approximately three  o'clock on the platform at Kinsmen Park when the number will  be read out. Numbers will continue to be drawn until the prize  is awarded. The prize for the  program draw is a stereophonic  hi-fi worth  close to $80.  The parade will assemble at  Elphinstone School grounds, area  at 12 noon to be judged. It will  move off at 1:15 p.m. down Sechelt Highway to Seaview road,  along to Beach Ave., to Marine  Drive along past the Shell Service station and will keep to  Gower Point road until it turns  off in vicinity of Kinsmen Park.  There the band, marching  team, queen candidates, prize  floats and official cars will enter the grounds to prepare for  the opening and queen selection  ceremonies..  Later there will be a trampo.-  line display arranged by Frank  Zantolas of Port Mellon.  There will be a Queen's banquet at Danny's Dining Room at  5 p.m. 'at which the queen, other  candidates, visiting queen, entourage, and mothers will be  guests.  To those who feel pangs of  hunger while at Kinsmen Park  there will be refreshments available.  Volunteer Firemen of Gibsons  area have put up street decorations in preparation, for the big  day. When the parade forms up  and gets under way firemen under RCMP supervision will take  .over traffic .control duties at  specified points. " "'"���'"  Request  refused  A letter from Mrs. Hazel Liste,  school representative, writing as  a private citizen, asked Sechelt  district school board to return  grade nine to Elphinstone High  school from Trail Bay school  where it now is. The board decided to keep to its\ decision to  have grade nine at Trail Bay  school.  At the meeting held Tuesday  night in the board office in Gibsons Mr.,Lett of Gambier Island  appeared to see what was to be  done about transporting children  from Gambier Island now that  the ferry for them has been discontinued owing to the number  falling below ferry requirements  He was informed the children  could be re-imbursed for transportation of their own  choice.  The board also decided a committee would work on a program  for next  year's night school.  WATER SAFETY FILM  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary, Gibsons branch, will sponsor an evening of films based  on water safety. The main feature will be a film on "Mouth  to Mouth Respiration." These  films will be shown on Thursday, July 6 at 8 p.m. in Gibsons Legion hall. A silver collection will be taken.  Joy!Joy!  School bells will ring for the  last time for this term at Elphinstone High School on Thursday, June 29, when classes for  Junior High school grades will  end at the close of the school  day. Seniors have been writing  examinations for the past two  weeks and will be finished on  Wednesday.  A special assembly will be held  in the auditorium on Thursday,  June 29 at 1 p.m. when awards  will be presented to Grades VII.  VIII and IX. Musical items will  complete the program. Parents  and others interested , are cordially invited to attend "this assembly.

Two friends leave  Two Gibsons ministers, one retiring and the other moving to another field of service, will leave this community shortly.  Rev. L. R. Preston of the Pentecostal church is going to Neepawa,  Man., and Rev. David Donaldson of Howe Sound United Church  charge, resident minister of Gibson Memorial United Church, is retiring after serving more than 30 years in the*'ministry.  Mr. Preston has not been here much more than a year but in  that time he has left his mark as a citizen. He is the president of  Gibsons-Port Mellon Red Cross Society and was on the verge of rejuvenating that branch when he was offered the Neepawa pastorate.  Mr. Preston and family were well liked and their stay here has-been  all too short. Being one of the younger ministers, Mr. Preston had a  fine opportunity to make his church a potent force.  Mr. Donaldson in his farewell sermon Sunday after five years of  hard work, spoke of the battle he had after leaving the army in the  First World War when demobilized. It took him five years to make  up his mind whether he could justly serve the church well.'The mental upset brought  on by wartime experiences presented problems.  However he mastered them and after various pastorates in the province he came to Gibsons. As a result Gibsons people have.benefitted.  His background has some of the whimsicality for which the Irish  are noted. He can make penetrating observations yet never hurt with  anything he says. The lowliest person in Gibsons would never be  turned away by him and he would not seek out the wealthiest to the  exclusion of the poorest.  Mr. Donaldson will always find the welcome mat at Gibsons front  door. There will always be a chair ready for him at the Coast News  office. What more can one say about a man.  Both he and Mrs. Donandson, who has also done some excellent  work among the women of this area, will retire to their home in Vancouver. Port Mellon, Gibsons, Roberts Creek and Wilson Creek congregations will miss them both. One can suspect welcome mats are  also lying at those places waiting for Mr. and Mrs. Donaldson to make  a friendly call sometime in the future.  employers    with   the   incident  which decided me many years  ago      to    become  a sea-faring  ���man. At the tender age of  13  years   my   mother    purchased  out   of her  egg money a   hol-  stein cow which bore  the   dubious   title    "Sweetheart."  ,We  were living on a stump'.%ranch  or the  coast at the time* Any-,  how     our      newly      acquired  Sweetheart    proved    to   be    a  swine come milking time,- she  was  simply   a   holy  corker,   a  devil rigged out in cow's gear.  My very first lesson in seamanship   got   off   to   a   flying  start when mother assigned me  to  my ;,l_ir_t   milking   transaction.    Sweetheart   was   in  the  back pasture  when  I   went  to  fetch her and I quickly became  aware   of   the  fact   toat   Ma's  milk factory was fully capable  of  fantastic   speeds,   up   to  45  knots in a fair wind.  ��jt ��*> .*��_.  *** ��j- 'i��  Sweetheart psrsisted i n  heading out northwest when  the desired course lay to the  southeast and although I was  in my bare feet I could not  catch her so I went and filled  a herring tub with feed mash  and sang out "come and get  her or I'll throw her to the  dogs."  . This latest tactic proved  that I, knew my stuff for I  barely had time to place the  tub in the feed stall when  Sweetheart charged through  the   door * disregarding   all   of    tpmary I bid Sweetheart good  was insufficient, room between  a cow's after props to permit  passage of a bucket and whilst  I was mulling this new handicap over in my mind and  wondering how in the world  to reach the drips this way, oh  brother, have you ever been  caught at sea without your  rain gear?

By taking in every last inch on the  head line and by running out  spring lines both fore and aft  on either side from Sweetheart's forward struts I found  that I had opened- up a new  channel of approach so I grabbed up a milk bottle arrl  wormed my way back aft  from dead ahead to a position  where once more I could reach  the drips. This at last is how  ���my assignment had to be completed, however it required  several trips to replace the filled bottles and along about my  third trip in, my knee came  to rest ,on a soft shoulder and  I was forced to suspend operations for sufficient time to  hose the deck down.  ��*�� *.��* *.v  ������j"- *�� W4-  My missiqn finally completed I gathered up the full bottles of cow brew and as is cus-  HAROLD MALYEA  thing   being   ship-shape.

Proudly with  them bottles ensconced to my  breast and forgetting my sore  feet, I set out-on my triumphant course to the house, every-  Gems of Thought  REST  Men tire themselves in pursuit of rest. ��� Laurence Sterne  Absence of occupation is not  Sweetheart carelessly swabbed rest; a mind quite vacant' is a  my face with her pump handle    mind distressed.  A tough problem  Standardization, conformity, constriction, congestion, all these  things would likely result if an idea advanced by an Ontario newspaper were to be brought into effect by legislation. It has to do with  store hours, a perennial problem for merchants everywhere and a  source of annoyance to consumers. The suggestion is that there be  standard hours for all communities.  The trouble is that not even one province is the same all over.  A store in a small village usually stays open for longer hours than  stores in big cities, and even in cities there are differences between  night-time traffic through a railway station and daytime traffic in a  residential area. It may be that in a residential area stores do not  need to stay open mornings. The variation is infinite.  One thing that advocates of standardization or hours forget is  that it costs money to keep a store open, especially a big store with  a large staff. And it stands to reason that, if there isn't sufficient  consumer demand for evening shopping hours, the store owners will  speedily close. ��  Sonnet  ' By Les Peterson  I cannot handle prose, but I can write "    _  Patches of poetry that take to wing;  Skylarks of melody that rise and sing  In morning's ear the music of the night.  I cannot tell a plain, unvarnished tale,  But I can work the words that come my way  Until they bend to say what I must say,  And with their bent and blended strength prevail.  I cannot bow to finite verb and noun,  Or make salute to syntax protocol,  But upflung thought and feeling must come down,  And bring with them a target where they fall ���  If there be other stars, another crown,  I only know that this, to me, is all.  UNANSWERED  The form letter accompanying an annual questionnaire  from an advertising publication that publishes a list of  Canadian house organs contained some supplementary questions on subjects of apparent  interest to the editor.  The qustionnaire was simple  enough, but the answerer failed on this supplementary question: "Have you realigned your  editorial focus, say, from" an  internal type to an external ���  or vice versa?" It looks like  a $64 question, but the answerer hadn't $64 worth of time to  waste in puzzling out its meaning.  iSo I found another piece of  line and run out a stern line  from her pump handle to a  pole stud back aft. It seems  that I left a mite . to mucix  slack in the lines for Sweetheart having grown restless  now went full bore astern parting, the head line.  * *     *  . T went out behind  the barn  in search of more line and  whilst so doing did step on a  nail which so deeply penetrated my bare foot that when I  lifted my foot the shingle  ���through which the nail was  ���driven came up also. With another piece of stronger line I  returned to find sweetheart  had driven around thwartships  in her mooring basin. Having  no capstan with which, to  winch her into a fore and aft  position I was forced to pole  old Sweetheart around by  hand.  Considerable time had elapsed by this time and I was away  Behind schedule. After resecur-  ing the object of Ma's affection up forward I again made  my way aft and grabbed up  -Lie milk bucket and that short  legged wheelhouse stool all  the while keeping a sharp lookout both fore and aft.  Approaching Sweetheart  from the starboard quarter  tack I perched myself on the .  stool and as I was adjusting  -the bucket under the drips that  'lively critter <up and placed,  her starboard hand afterfoot  on top of my uninjured foot  and took on a severe list toward me. Sweetheart, God  Bless her, when Sbe saw the  tears in my eyes and heard  the nature of my complaint in  off-key singing, just up with  that offender and plunked it  in the bucket. I had to go to  the house and fetch another  bucket.  * *    *  > Upon my i return with the  second bucket old Sweetheart  cast her gold digger eyes my  way and I knew only to well  that if she didn't toave her way  then I was in for a fresh gale,  so I put more mash in the tub  and made my limping way  around to her port side. This  ���time just as the drips started  dripping, Sweetheart just as  quick-as a cat spots a mouse,  shot her port hand aflterfoot  into my ^second bucket. By  this time my patience became  ���sorely tried.  ��� William Cowper.  True rest is not that of torpor, but that of harmony. . .  not resting from duty, but finding rest in it. ��� Frederick William Robertson.

This week s RECIPE  Custards take many forms  to suit summer, meals. One  form wtfichls famous, French,  and flavorsbme is Quiche Lorraine ��� a savoury main course,  cheese-and-bacon custard pie.  The word quiche, we are told,  comes ' from a German word  for pie, "kuchen." Lorraine  pinpoints the province where  the dish originated.  Quiche Lorraine provided  the home economists of Canada's Department of Fisheries  with inspiration for an unusually good company dish which  they called Quiche Maritime.  It differs from tCie classic  'French dish in several respects.  For example, smoked fish fil-'  lets replace the bacon in the  cheese  custard filling. .  How to bake the crust without overcooking the custard  has always been a problem,  with Quiche Lorraine. In  Quiche Maritime this was overcome by replacing the pastry  With a cooked rice crust. As a  distinctive finishing touch, the  new dish was given a colorful trim of baked tomato,  wedges.

Turn  into   a   greased  9   or   9V_-incla  pie  plate.   Spread   rice  evenly  over plate and  with  the back  of a fork or spoon press it firmly   against   the   bottom,   sides!  and on the rim to form  a pie  sthell. Coat tomato wedges with  French  dressing   and  allow to  marinate   while  preparing   the  filling. '  Separate smoked fillets and  cut into pieces 2 toT 3 inches  long. Place in a greased baking dish, add- milk, and bake  in a moderate oven at 350 degrees F. for about 20 minutes,  or until the fish will separate  into flakes on testing with, a  fork. Drain, reserving 3A cup  of poaching liquid. Combine it  with 2 beaten eggs.  Assemble pie as follows.'  Sprinkle V_ cup of grated  ���cheese over rice in pie plate.  Arrange fish on top and  sprinkle with remaining cheese  Add egg-poaching liquid mixture. Bake in a moderate oven  at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes. Remove pie from oven  and arrange drained tomato  wedges around edge of filling,  skin side upward. Return pie  longer, or until the custard is  to oven and bake 10 minutes  set and a silver knife inserted  in the centre comes out clean.

Ph   MU 3-7477  (c) Room for doctors:  The  hospital recently built a suite  for the doctors, consisting of a  waiting room, two examining  rooms, two offices, wash-room  and storage. This is adequate  space for their needs.  Whilst it is not our wish to dispute  the   results  of  the survey  made   by  your   department,   it  would seem that the facts show  its conclusions to be premature,  and that the urgency pleaded did  not materialize. As to location,  this will depend upon the growth  of the whole area. If the   area  around Gibsons  grows,  as  well  it may, then the idea of leaving  the  existing hospital   in  operation and building the new hospital when, needed, in the Gibsons  area, should jnot be overlooked.  You refer to the actions of St.  Mary's Hospital Society in making various requests of your department.    This   point   will   be  cleared if we explain a little:  In the.past, membership in St.  Mary's Hospital Society was  largely confined to residents of  the area immediately adjacent  to the hospital. This situation  prevailed; for many years. With  the proposal, however, to build  a new hospital at Sechelt, and  with the realisation that a vote  from the Society favoring such  building was mandatory, about  200 new members from the Sechelt area submitted their membership fees to the Society a day  or so before the deadline for  voting rights in the next annual  meeting, when the motion was to  be put that the society should  authorize construction of the pro  posed new hospital.  The motion, of course, was  passed, as the voting majority  of the society is in the hands of  the people at Sechelt.  The board of trustees has one  Selma Park, two from Sechelt,  member from Gibsons, one from  one each from Halfmoon Bay  and Middlepoiht, and two from  Pender Harbour (one of whom,  the chairman, had no vote). It is  thus evident that voting control  of the board of trustees is also  not in the hands of the people of  the Pender Harbour area.  The foregoing will explain the  apparent difference between the  attitude of the society and the  stand taken by the Pender Har  bour Hospital Committee. It will  also explain the lateness of any  formal protest over the proposal to close St. Mary's Hospital.  Local residents, also, refused to  believe that the government  would order the closure of a perfectly serviceable hospital which  is well run and performing a real  service to the community, in order to spend a great deal of the  taxpayers' money for one only  slightly larger in capacity. Nov/  that they realize that such is indeed the intention, they are of  one mind ��� that they will not  permit the closure.  K. E. Jermaint>. chaii'maa  ,  Pender Harbour Hospital Committee.

Please  publish this, it expresses my feelings exactly concerning 'ban the  bomb' groups.  Mrs. Corley mentions Camille  Mather as one who started the  group.

Editor, the Sun: Sir, ��� Your  writer Mamie Moloney, in her  strictures against the editor of  the Coast News, is just too smart  for her owiy good.  The editor had suggested that  children would be better employed in keeping fit than in carting around "No Nuclear Bombs"  petitions to peace-loving Canadian  homes.  What your writer conveniently ignores is that the whole history of dictators shows that they  attack only when they think they  have a push-over, such as a country of overfed, pampered young  people, befuddled with, ban-the-  bomb propaganda.  But this is something the Mamie Moloneys will never face up  to. It's much easier to write  reams about the horrors of nuclear war, something of which  everyone is perfectly aware and  which we want to avoid as we  would any other disaster.  So let's  give the horror stuff,  a rest, Mamie.  6       Coast News,  June 29, 1961.  I wonder   how   many  nuclear  bombs the people of Tibet had?  No Push-Over, Vancouver.  Editor: Your physical fitness  editorial and letters were interesting. Could you create interest  in another important* subject?  Our money systems vary  throughout the world and even  our Canadian system is so complicated we have the "finance  minister and the governor of our  national bank in a tizzy.  Perhaps they liKe the Ontolo-  gical Society wish to change human  nature.   Human   nature is  founded on principles set by God  We mock Hiii} and ourselves  when we attempt to change them.  However, when' such basic  laws are recognized, an atmosphere that will indude some control of human nature is possible.  All civilization is based on  trade and commerce. Trade and  commerce can only exist by using money. Only stable money  will encourage expansion and  security.  Most confusion is caused by  using money, as a commodity,  buying arid selling it at a profit.  This is done by our government,  our" banks, finance houses, business and individuals.  , J. J.

And we  all know that our local trees are  not growing as fast as we are  cutting them. All of which makes  the wood crop and fish crop not  too plentiful. "  We've all heard about the population explosion, it's here, now.  The fallout from the explosion  means visitors with money in  their hip pockets, ready to have  fun, get sunburnt, catch fish,  drink a little, shout a little and  generally relax. They are , prepared to spend a few bucks in  pursuit of relaxation, and that  spending is important to local  residents. It provides a living  for motel, restaurant, and boat  rental operators, extra jobs for  your sons and daughters when  they need them most, and, further, it brings a refreshing touch  of the outside, world into our  lives.  Residents enjoy certain facilities that are made possible by the  visitors, like launching ramps,  ready-mix outboard fuel, outboard parts, these you can use  because the tourist-dollar makes  them possible..  Strangely enough, some of us  resent visitors; perhaps because  they ask a lot of questions, perhaps because -they are loafing  and we are working, who knows:  but, honestly, 90% of them are  pleasant, interesting people, who  only want to. enjoy themselves  ��nd have taken the time and  trouble to come here to do it.  What if they don't know a starfish from a jellyfish? What do  you know about gophers, rattle  snakes, or*avocados? So why not  tell them of the, things you know;  you'll find theyyare good listeners, and have lots of information  that will interest you.  So be kind to this year's crop;  it's easier to smile than to snarl.
