Les HempsaU in delivering a Toast to the Ladies at the  Burns Night dinner Saturday in Port Mellon might have been  jesting in his remarks but we shall leave it to the reader to discover whether the truth of it is greater than the jest. Here is a  quote from what he said, in loose rhyme:  They have no 40-hour week, no seniority clause,  No night shift differential, no contract, no laws,  Not even Art Lockwood to voice their demands;  They must sit in bored silence when we issue commands.  .They're the salt of the earth.

Certain statements have, /been  made relative to his training,  his qualifications and his professional integrity.  To prevent any misinformation on the subject which  would be most misleading to  the public, the Association of  Naturopathic     Physicians     of  ^British Columbia submits the  following statement: ���  1 "A naturopathic physician  in. British Columbia is properly trained and duly qualified  to practise naturopathy as required by the- laws of British  Columbia. He is required to  complete two years of liberal  arts in a university, such; as the  University of British Columbia  to" take a residence course of  not less than four years of nine  months each ��at a Naturopathic  college* ���which has been accredited by the board of supervision, to serve an internship in  the public clinics of the college; to successfully pass?with  a minimum 75 % average"a full  week's examination under the  supervision of the University  of British Columbia, ^before he  is eligible for registration and  legal right to practise in B.C.  "A naturopathic physician,  by philosophy and by law,  practises those fields of preventive arid theraputic healing which are 'natural.'.These  fields include the use of the  following:  1. Plant life ��� both in the  ���ield of nutrition and herbblo-  gy-  ��� "''  2. Body mechanics, which  includes remedial exercises,  posture, spinal and other manipulations. "  3. Physical agents such as  physiotherapy. ;  4.

John Barker, Sechelt, was  fined $25 for failing to submit  a 1956 income tax return.  Stephen Littlejohn, Gibsons,  was fined $50 and costs for  creating a disturbance in West  Sechelt.  Roy Deller, Gibsons, was  fined $15 and costs for operating a load of logs without a red  flag attached to the rear.  Ronald   Joe,    Sechelt,   was  found  guilty  of driving without due care and attention in  connection   with - an  accident, .  Aug.   31,   1957,   near   Garden.  Bay Lake in which a passenger  in defendant's car was drowned when the car ended up in  10 feet of water. Mr. Joe was  sentenced to 60 days imprisonment and on a second charge���  of   driving while   his   licence  was suspended, was sentenced  to a concurrent 30 days.  A juvenile from Vancouver  was fined for speeding'- near  Porpoise Bay. He was given a  stern warning by the Magistrate.  Terrence Nickerson, West  Sechelt, and W.R. Morrison,  Porpoise Bay, were fined $10  each and costs for trespassing  on the Sechelt Reserve.  John Murray, Sechelt, was  fined $25 for speeding.  I, and S Transfer, Gibsons,  was fined $10 for operating a  truck with a load in excess of  50 feet, without a permit.  William Douglas, John Mc-  Knight, of Lasqueti Island, .  were fined $100 each for prowl  ing at night on the John Haddock property at Pender Harbour.  Article 4  It was 192?] ,the first taxi  operated in -Sechelt. Frank  French purchased a Nash and  did considerable business. Mr.  French lived in. Sechelt since  1904.' He joined the forces in.  the First War arid went. overseas, bringing back,,with him  as a war bride Alice French.  Mrs. Jack Wbod was also a war  bride ?ahd still lives ..in.'?the.?  West End? Her. husband Jack  Woods is an old time resident?,  of Sechelt. '"'        ,     .  Miss Amelia James arrived  in. Sechelt in 1911. She was  housekeeper for the Whitakers  at Beach House and also worked in the Hotel with Mrs, George Phillips known in those  days as Miss'Porte. W.J. Martin  (Joe) did most of the hauling  with his Galloping Goose truck*  so named^by Mr. Butterfield,  columnist of the Daily Province Who said the truck seemed to jump over the terrible  ruts in the roads just like a  goose.  Poor old Joe. He worked  hard?fori very little in those  days but was always ready to  do anything for the residents:  He supplied inost of the vegetables, fruits and fire wood  (no oil burners then). Firewood  was used exclusively for heat.  There were three autos in  those days. The; Union S.S. had  a model T Ford, Frank French  had an old Nash and the writ-  er. had a Model A Ford.  The roads were terrible and  it was a real hardship to go tp  Gibsons. There was no road  to Pender Harbour, good or  bad, so our trips consisted of  Roberts Creek or. Gibsons  Landing. What a change fn the  Penisula now. I believe there  are over 700 cars in the district  and the roads all blacktopped  arid a pleasure to drive over.  Even with the bad roads  we  never -missed  a . dance  at  Roberts Creek or Gibsons  Landing. The dances usually  were held in the one room  school house with violin and  accordion as an orchestra.  They, were pleasant, days and  everyone knew-each other.        j  One policeman (Provincial)  served the whole district from  Seaside Park to Lasqueti Island; Constable Sutherland, later Sergeant. He was a good  friend,- and was sure missed  when he left for pyerseas in  the second war. He also served  in the first war and had the.  D.S.O., M.C. and bar. His regiment was the Argyle and Suth��  erland Highlanders. Doug Suthr'.  erland helped everyone and it  was O.K. if you had no auto  licence. I don't think anyone  who owned a car toolt, out a  licence until about September  in each year. Doug would say  that's O-K. I'll not look when  I see your car. What a pal. Sgt.  Sutherland died soon after he  came back from overseas in  the second war. Overseas he  rose to the rank of Major.  During the winter the Union  Steamships ran four steamers  a week to Sechelt arid three to  Vancouver. During the sum-;  mer a steamer sailed every  day to and from Vancouver.  Friday night was daddy's boat  when all the. daddys came up  with the bacon, etc., and it  was lots of fun on the Sechelt  wharf   hearing   all   the   kids  Guaranteed  Watch &  Jewelry Repairs  shouting "Hello Daddy, did  you bring this and that." etc.  The store would be lighted  up on Fridays and a dance going on in the dance hall which^  is now the movie theatre.

Ken Pratt who has been logging here for the past year is  moving his equipment to  Eg-,  mont where  he is  starting  a  new operation. .   ���  Ben   Gauthier   of   St.   Vin-  Merchants plan  i  The annual meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Merchants  Creit Association will be held'  Feb. 14, at 7 p.m. in he Village Coffee shop, Sechelt,  when officers, will be chosen  for the coming year.  The association, now about  two years old, has made great  strides since organization and  its operations in the debt collecting field have been outstanding under B.L. Cope, secretary-manager.  Here is the report on the  1957 Fund Raising Campaign  for St. Mary's Hospital, Pender  Harbour. As you will see the  campaign was a success in that  it raised, the money need in  1957 to avail the hospital of the  benefits of 'public power, to  replace the roof. which tfras in  sad heed of repair, to repair  the ^ sewer line, arid to make  provision for an automatic  switch for standby power  should it prove necessary.  This success represents a lot  of hard work on the part of  our canvassers who voluntarily gave a great deal of time  and effort to collect the money, and we should all give our  sincere thanks to the following:  Mrs. Alice Bryde, Mrs. Clarence Cook, Mrs. Bill Davis,  Mrs. Florence Dubois, .Mrs.  Z6e Earl, Mrs. Shirley Leavens  Mrs. Joyce Lee, Mrs. Ethel Mc-  Nutt, Mrs. Hal MacKay, Mr.  J.R. 'Parker, Mrs. Lee Roberts,  Mrs. Ora Sinclair, Mrs. Elsa  Warden,. Mr. Ian Woodburn.  It should also be mentioned  that there have been no costs  to the Hospital in this entire ��  campaign, the individual canvassers paid for their own gas  arid other expenses, and every  cent collected went directly  for the purpose for which it  was given.  In speaking of canvassers,  we must make special mention  of trie ladies of St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary, Pender Har-  'bour, of Which the' ladies of  Vancouver Bay have proved  most helpful members, the  Redrooffs and Halfmoon Auxiliaries ��� to St. Mary*s, who  work all year for our hospital,  and in addition donated substantially to this campaign,  the Mount Elphinstone Chap-  work!  ter No. 65, O.E.S. has also been  a regular helper through the  year. The amount these ladies  have been able to raise for the  hospital over the years is truly  amazing.  This seems like a good time'  to repeat once more, that the  B.C. Hospital Insurance Service oniy pays for the minimum costs of running the hospital, and that all improvements whether in buildings or '  equipment, must first be paid  for in full by the community,  and the BCHIS will in due  course pay one thircl of the  cost of those items of which  they approve. The money  which has been donated to: the  hospital, while it has been'run  by the Board "of Trustees, -ha3  been used to improve the facilities and service, we are  able to offer the people of the  Peninsula, but it is a continuing process and to maintain a  good standard we will need to  keep raising money.  For our 1958 campaign, we  do hope to enlist the aid of  more canvassers for the lower  Peninsula, so that we may give  the people of that area a better chance to help the hospital  that serves all.  To all those who helped St.  Mary's H6spital by giving their  time, services, money or goods  during the past year, I would  like on behalf of the Board of  Trustees of St. Mary's Hospital, to extend our very sincere  thanks for their generosity,  they have helped our patients'  to enjoy good hospital care,  and have helped the Trustees  in their many problems.

The most significant: speech  last week -was", by Mel Bryan  (S.C. North Vancouver) and  his request for Attorney-General Bonner's resignation because "of his lack of action in  the Sturdy-Sommers affair. A  good speech was also made by  Rae Eddie (CCF, New Westnlin  ster) on the subject of the  Workmen's Compensation  Board: I would also like to say  something abbut my Sttem.pt to  improve transportation ser-  ices on -the coast.  Mel Bryan's sincere and honest appraisal of his own government's, scandalous handling  of. the bribery charges against  Robert? Sommers, former minister of .lands and forests', was  classic and noble. Rarely has a  more, eloquent statement been  made on the. floor' of the legislature.

As you will remember, Bryan questioned?Bonner's appreciation of, the basic concepts of  justice inherent in his high  office. Bryan said that Bonner  had "a stubborn reluctance to  forego his' apparent belief that  it wasn't necessary to establish  Caesar's wife above suspicion  ��� not until developments  threatened Caesar himself."  This is beautiful oratory.  *������ Mr. Bryan has made the legislature fulfil its proper" faction at last. He is at courageous  man who let his conscience be  his guide and at the same time  performed a great public service. ,  Mr. Bryan has an historic  relation to rhy own riding? of  Mackenzie. 1 His; father;. Mel  Bryan, Sr.; represented Mackenzie in the provincial house  for the Liberal party 1937 - 40.  ���*'������'    '* ���' *���'���*'      ';'"   ,   . "  Rae Eddie gave.the MLA's  last week ; some > interesting  facts about the percentages of  claims that have been rejected, by the Workmen's Compensation Board ovier a period of  years.  Eddie told us that between  1935 and 1950 the board had  rejected less than one percent  of workmen's claims. Last year  Lyle Wicks, minister of labor,  had told us that two percent of  claims are now being rejected.  This was brought about, said  Eddie, because the board is  taking a legalistic attitude to  workingmeh's claims. Eddie  said that the Workmen's Com- x  pensation Act should be regarded as social iegislatiqn and '  not administered like the criminal code-.  He said problems of compensation can arise through-.faults  in the act, unreasonable interpretation of the act, and poor  administration.

He felt that we  must not qualify' workers on  technical grounds.  ? Another point discussed was  those awful form letters the  board sends out. He read one  of them to the legislature.  Frankly it was hard to figure  out whether the; worker had  been refused coverage or not,  the language is so sbbscure to  ordinary people.
