Tourist association  outlines triangle route  Sunshine Coast Tourist association executive meeting  Sunday, at Ole's Cove with Len  Larson of Larson's Madeira  Park Resort in the chair, supported the brief of the Powell-  River Board of Trade seeking  establishment of. three ferries  covering short distances from  Bliss Landing to Campbell River, using j islands for road  routes between ferries. ,  This would result in the  three ferries covering a total  . of 13 miles and travel by road  on islands) of VaVz miles. It  was thought such a system  would open up a great deal of  country and would also provide an excellent tourist .attraction, all in protected waters.

The results from  the whole province have not  been finalized but it appears  that the objective of $275,000  has. been reached, and this will  enable the Foundation to carry  out its 1959 program.

The association also approved a Pender Harbour Board  of Trade resolution asking that  the Pender Harbour area from  Thormanby Island to Scotch  Fir Point be declared closed  to herring seiners who it is  claimed are forcing salmon  from the area by clearing out  herring.  John Haddock reported on a  scheme to have an all-inclusive  price tour organized for the  area. These tours would cover  a three-day period or less and  could be- put into effect after  Labor Day when the summer  traffic eases.--:The various,areas  were asked to examine the idea  and see what could be done  about it.  It was also suggested Black  Ball Ferries be approached  with a View to having one of  the larger Nanaimo . ferries  make a trip on Friday evenings  to Langdale and a return trip  on Sunday evenings to help  relieve the overload which accumulates on   these   evenings.  Next executive meeting will  be held at Powell River oh  March 15 and the next general  meeting will be held in the:  Peninsula Hotel, Roberts Creek  area on April 12 when the executive of AGRA, the Auto  Courts association, will attend.  Sechelt gives  fire grant  At a meeting of Sechelt Village Commission Feb. 4, it was  decided that the financial report submitted by the Sechelt  Volunteer Fire Brigade be accepted and that a request for  an interim grant of $300 be  approved. A letter was also ordered sent to the brigade thank  ing them for dismantling the  Chrkitmas tree.  A request by Sechet Peninsula Rod and Gun Club for a  winch on Porpoise Bay wharf  was referred to Commissioner  Hansen for investigation and  report.  An enquiry from the Kinsmen Club for permission to  build a tennis court in Hack-  ett Park was referred to Commissioner Dawe for invesitiga-'  tion.  Accounts totalling $1,137.19  were ordered paid, including  $880 for street lights. A donation of $10 was made to the  Sunshine Coast -Fall Fair.  2 new P.O's  Growth of, the area means  growth . in postal needs and  William H. Payne, Conservative member for Coast-Capilano. constituency reports that  post offices will be established  at Garden Bay and also at Egmont.  It is expected that shortly  there will be advertisements  seeking applicants for the jobs  of post master, at each point.  Eo'.h parts of the country wiil  be p-leaced at the announcement.  A move towards establishment of a hospital closer to  centres of population was  launched Saturday night at a  public meeting in Sechelt's Legion hall when a committee  was organized to delve into  possibilities.  General trend of the meeting was to get a hospital nearer  than Garden Bay no matter  how long it took. Various  speakers were emphatic in  their views that' the area  should look towards 1965 rather than to worry about today  It was felt there was no possibility of getting any action  for the building, even a 15 bed  hospital,   until    the    situation  had'reached the point where  Victoria officials were impressed the hospital was necessary.  The committee, announced  by Chairman H.T. Hubbs of  Selma Park, included Dr. H.  Inglis and Dr. William McKee,  Joe ?Benner, Roy Greggs, Har  old/Roberts, Fred Jorgenson,  W.B. Boucher, George Page,  Jack Mayne, F. Newton, Reg  Paul, Don Macklam, Mrs. E.E.  Wallis, Mrs. Bob Donley, Father.- O'Grady, Father Wade,  and Sid McDonnell with Mrs>.  William Haley as secretary.  Treasurer will be T.E. Duffy.-  Mr. Hubbs will take charge of  publicity requirements.  Objective of the   committee  will be to. ascertain how it can  operate, whether a charter can  be obtained for a new association or whether it would have  to operate under the present  St. Mary's Hospital Association  charter.  Mr. Hubbs in his opening remarks said a hospital was needed in a central location and  stressed it would require a unit  ed effort from Port Mellon to  Egmont to achieve what the  area required. When St. Mary's  hospital was built back some  30 years ago, the population  was roughly 3,800. Today it is  beyond the 12,000 mark. Commenting on the committee  which   the  meeting  approved,  Pt. Mellon dial phones Feb. 25  Port Mellon residents will  be talking to each other in a  different manner, come 8 a.m.  Wednesday, Feb. 25.  That's the time and day  when a modern automatic telephone system springs, into operation, thus> ushering in a  new era of communications.  Overall costwf the dial system, which will link -some 100  telephones in Port Mellon to  "millions throughout the  world", is more than $68,000,  said B.F. Abram, B.C.' Telephone Company district com  mercial manager at North Vancouver.  Telephone crews have spent  months installing dial switching equipment costing $25,400  in the new telephone building.  A network of outside cable  plant cost more than $17,400.  Also included is $20,000 for associated equipment known as  "trunking facilities," that links  Fort Mellon telephones to Gibsons and the outside world.  Port Mellon  telephone   sub  scribers will receive telephone  numbers starting wit!h the prefix TUrner 4, followed by four  numerical digits. This i^ known..  as a 2-5 number, or two letters a  >":and,;-five"*_igures!;   '"''"- ���"������ ---'���'������ -',���������������-*-���  The Turner prefix was chosen from a standardized master  list drawn up for Canada and  tlie U.S. and brings the area  into line with an intricate, international dialing plan- Under this plan, an operator will  be able to dial a distant number direct without the services  of another operator at the called   point.  The   eventual   plan  calls for subscribers to dial  rno^t distant numbers without  the. aid of an operator at either  point.  An important feature of the  ne^ ��� automatic system is that  subscribers will have 'harmonic ringing" ��� that is, a subscriber will hear only his own  telephone ring ��� not the ring  of others on his party line.  That is because telephones on  party lines are attuned to ring  only when a certain ringing  current is sent out from the  central office. For this reason,  a subscriber should answer his  telephone every time it rings.  Mr. Abrams points out that  a steady humming tone, heard  when the telephone receiver is  picked up, ia the automatic  equipment's way of telling a  subscriber to begin dialing the  number he wishes to call.  The new central office equipment wa? installed by Doug  Weisner and Lynn Robson.  Installation of outside plant  f-icilities and telephone sets  was supervised by Frank  Brown and carried out by Harold Estabrooks, John Gillies  and Ely Marcussen.  Mr. Hubbs said it represented-  each area from Port Mellon tc-  Pender Harbour.  None of the speakers had  anything but praise for the service rendered by St. Mary's  Hospital and its staff and the  only adverse comment either  doctor stressed was that they;-  were unable < to give their pa_-  tients daily attention when:  they were removed to St-  Mary's because of the distance  that had to be covered frorrt  the doctors' homes. A.A. Lloyd?  chairman of St. Mary's hospital board explained how the  charter situation covered the  entire area now under consideration.  Other speakers wondered if  it would not be possible to  work out an amicable agreement with the St. Mary's organization under which the.  new organization could operate in order to obtain a more  ���central hospital.  A letter was read from Mrs.  Mary M. White, former supervisor of nurses at St. Mary's,  but now in Chicago. In this  letter Mrs. White offered her  full support for the establisb--  ment of a new hospital.  Fi  Merchants....  Greet 100 new phone subscribers when the  Port Mellon system opens Feb. 25.

Feb. 2 saw 55  persons present 'to hear Mrs.  Crattenden," the president of  the association outline their  work and how they work with  the other nine organizations  who are represented on the  federated Legislative Committee of Elder Citizens in British  Columbia.  It'.was the first rear outline  given to any meeting held in  Gibsons .as to what the Elder  Citizens' organizations do in a  co-operative; way tb further the  interests of all elder citizens.  There are approximately 80,-  000 people represented by this  Federated Legislative. Committee which isj comprised of five  .delegates' from each provincial organization in agreement  with the principal of one unit  only submitting to federal, provincial or civic governments  resolutions or requests for improved or revised legislation  affecting the welfare of elder  citizens.  Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bryant  ' enlivened the meeting with  songs and musical skits accompanied by William Haley who  helps musically in any way he  can. Mr. Bryant # is ��� organizer  for the association and gave  a good outline of the association's work and spoke of the  newspaper that the association  publishes, keeping members  fully informed of association  progress.

He told the legislature he  knew that this road would be  expensive to construct but felt  that the Government should  ..start planning now for the extension of the road from Horse-  Shoe Bay to Squamish and then  on through Woodfibre to Port  Mellon and   Gibsons.  He told the legislature he'  hoped the S.I.U. who provided seamen for the Black Ball  Ferries, had improved their  grievance procedure. He told  .his fellow members that people at Powell River and on the  Sechelt Peninsua did not appreciate being marooned every  time there was an argument  with a cigar store attendant.  He also urged that the budget   for   the  Fish   and   Game  Park committee  holds meeting  The executive of the new  committee which has: taken  over the Centennial committee will be known as the Park  Improvement committee. This  was decided at the last meek  ing of the newly organized com  mittee.  The committee under chairmanship of W.I. McAfee with  Reg Adams as secretary treasurer, moved to take over the  two bank funds of the old committee and merge them into  one with a total of $1,117. The  committee also decided not to  seek funds from the public  for the park until some of the  present funds have been used  up.  Ed Johnson was appointed  to head the committee to engineer the clearing of the park.  Branch be improved so that  fish and game services on the  Sechelt Peninsula could be  maintained or increased.  He told the minister of highways, during the Throne debate, that the Redroofs road  needed relocating, and reconstruction. He said that this  road was in primitive condition and needed much improve  ment.  He urged that the amusement tax on local events by  bona fide community groups  be relaxed. He told minister  of finance Bennett, that local  community organizations were  dismayed to find if their play  or dance failed to make a profit they were,not entitled to  the usual rebate on the amusement tax.  He congratulated the minister of agricuture for making  easier loans available to farmers for clearing land. He said  that these easier loans for land  clearing were long overdue.  talk  new firehail  Past and present executives of  Gibsons and Area Volunteer Fire  Department met last weekend to  discuss future plans.

A future hospital?  The move to start wheels moving for establishment of a  hospital in a central spot on the peninsula, signals the start of  a long, hard grind before the first siod is turned.  If the population increase will be in the southern end of  this area that is where any new hospital should be. The question  is how much population will be needed before the minds holding the power to build such a hospital can be moved in Victoria  to take the required action.  St. Mary's Hospital at Garden Bay was established some  30 or more years ago. -It has served the district well. It was built.  in the days when transportation was chiefly by water. In those  days it was logging and fishing country. Today logging and fishing continue but a new population dealing mainly with services  and now a pulp industry must be considered also.  Density! of population at present is in the Port Mellon,  Gibsons, Roberts Creek and Sechelt areas with a choice of using  St. Mary's or going to a Vancouver hospital, both a considerable  emergency distance from any of. these points.  As it was pointed out at Saturday night's Sechelt meeting  St. Mary's Hospital Association's charter covers the entire area  under discussion and it is possiible an amicable arrangement can  be worked out, but one can expect any desire to expand St.  Mary's where it is situated today might meet with opposition.  The feeling of Saturday night's meeting was that Garden  Bay was too distant to be of service in a general way to the population in the southern area. The two doctors stated that when  patients were sent to St. Mary's they lost control of them because  of the impossibility of daily rounds for check-up purposes.  This is all true but the salient fact is there is a hospital  at Garden Bay serving tlie area with other nearest hospitals in  Vancouver area. Provincial government authorities have a great  deal of pressure on them for hospitals which are by no means'  cheap to build. The new movement for a hospital in a more central location ,n this part of the country is a worthy cause but  the amount, of work required before it can become even a near  eventuality will be considerable. No matter under what charter  a hospital is built the need for it will become greater year by  year.   - ��� ���-'��� ��������� ; -' ���- ���  More money on brawn  A good deal of criticism is being directed at the U.S.A.  for having spent $40,000,000,000 in 1958 on recreation and only  $14,000,000,000 on education. The criticism is probably deserved,  but it might also be recalled that in their greatest period the  Greeks used little of their wealth for education, while concentrating much on games. Socrates and Plato taught inexpensively,  mainly by chatting, with practically no equipment. Aristotle  mainly did the same, although he invented the systems of keeping records, which led to the paraphernalia of present-day  schools. Although the library at Alexandria maintained civilization in an otherwise inferior period, nothing has been found in  education to surpass the conversation of sages.  It is probably a waste of time to complain about expenditures on recreation. With the Greeks, sport was a religion. 'Pindar based his entire poetry, not only; on the Olympic games, but  on the glorification of tlie winders. Sitting most of Saturday afternoon and evening watching games on TV and then putting  in some of Monday reading the details and comments: in the newspapers is a strange way to live, but these rites have, been performed in one way or another by humanity for several thousand  years.  Help Your Heart Fund **He1p Your Heart  BY TONY GARGRAVE, MLA  Last week John Squire,  MLA (CCF ��� Alberni) spoke  on the floor of the legislature  concerning the need for an appeal system from the decisions  of the Workmen's Compensation board. John Squire said  that criminals, after a full  trial, get a chance to appeal  to an impartial tribunal and  that workmen should get similar treatment.  In 1958 there were about  100,000 claims on the Workmen's Compensation board. K  five percent of these workmen  have their claims rejected  there would be 5,000 separate  cases that would have to go before the Workmen's Compensation board itself.  to which a citizen can appeal.  The inroads that the state  has made into the lives of each  one of us requires that decisions from such tribunals be  subject to an independent appeal. The citizen or workman  would then not only, get what  we might call justice but the  system itself would satisfy the  citizen or workman that justice  in fact has been done.  Compensation board are increasing. I believe that the  board itse'-f should welcbme  an appeal tribunal separate  and apart from the , Workmen's  Compensation board itself.  Possibly one member of the  board could be a doctor, one  member of the board- a ��� Jawyer  (so that the legal rights "pf the  appellants are protected), and  one member of the board could  come from the general public.  I believe that one convincing argument in setting up  such a separate and impartial  appeal board is that the quan  tity of claims now being processed by the board is so large  that only a proper appeal system can prevent errors and injustice.  The versatility of milk is  astonishing. Besides being natures most perfect food, it is  used to make the glossy finish  on paper; the smooth finish ta  fine leather; a base for some  paints; glue; buttons; belt  [buckles; costume jewelery; textile fibers; bristles and was our  first plastic.  Obviously, the three members of the board could not  possibly process that numbed  of claims personally. There has  been a great deal of discussion  both here and in Great Britain  on the necessity for an independent appeal from all types  of quasi-judicial administrative boards.  The basic weakness in the  present set up of the Workmen's Compensation board is  that the system has no appeal  separate and apart from the  board itself.  Mr. Squire said that the  present internal board of review was not satisfactory. This  internal board is composed of  the chief claims agent, the  chief medical officer and the  chief legal officer, but in most  cases these three same people  have advised the board in making the original decision, and  therefore the workman is making an appeal to the same  group of people.  Mr. Squire was critical of  the various forms which a  workman is sent to fill in. First  he said, comes the yellow form,  then comes the grey form.  Quite often during this time  the workman is unemployed.  sick and without money.  r \  Many government agencies  make important decisions concerning individual citizens. We  have Federal Pension boards,  Old Age Assistance boards, tax  tribunals and the Unemployment Insurance Commission.  Many of these agencies already  have  an independent tribunal  He said, and I quote, "I defy  anyone in this Legislature to  get justice when you have no  money and you are in ill  health." By this Mr. Squire  meant that a workman who felt  that he had been dealt with  unjustly by the board should  be assisted to not only make an  appeal but should receive financial assistance to travel to  and from any impartial, open  and fair hearing.  The province is growing,  and claims to  the Workmen's  Sherry ... 2  yea  her operation.

This "pump" actually does the work of the heart during  an operation, allowing surgeons time to make complete  repairs.  Medical research is also striving to discover the various  causes of heart disease, with the ultimate hope of preventing it. This valuable work is being correlated and  stimulated by the National Heart Foundation of Canada.  Because the life insurance companies in Canada believe  in the Heart Foundation, they have given it strong financial support.

In one form  or another, it is one at the most  frequent reasons for which patients consult a doctor, probably  because of its association in the  patients mind with heart disease. But the causes of chesc  pain are many, and most of them  are not of serious implication.  True heart pain ("angina") is,  as a rule, characteristic and  easily recognizable. It is usually  ���caused by narrowing or blockage of the heart's own arteries  (the coronaries) so that the heart  muscle itself does not receive  enough blood to meet its needs.  The result is a heart or anginal  pain.  Tlie   cause   of   coronary   obstruction is sclerosis or hardening of the arteries, a patchy process which is particularly prone  "to* affect the' arteries of the heart  and? brain.   Arter_es; so affected  may   be compared  to corroded  water  pipes,  but   the  cause   of  the   corrosion   is  not yet fully  understood,   although in   recent  times   important   progress    has  bean made in its treatment.  ',  Anginal pain may be mild or  severe. It often takes the form  of a tightness or sense of pressure under the breast bone. This  sensation   may   be painful and  frightening   when   intense,   but  more often than not, it is merely  aching in quality and often likened to. "indigestion." It may spread  to either arm, or to both arms,  and sometimes to the neck, jaws  .or back.  It is usually brought on by  exertion, and disappears auickly  with refet; but it may also be  caused by emotions such as fear  or anger, and it.may be produc-  Hospital WA  names officers  Members of St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary enjoyed a delicious luncheon at the Pender  Harbour Auto Court cafe.

AH Time Favorites was formed  at a meeting which took place  Jan. 30, in the home of Mrs. E.  Stilwell, Halfmoon Bay.  There were 16 enthusiast  members plus helpful parents  present. Chosen presidents were  Mike Stilwell and John Suitees  with Mrs. Queenie Burrows as  secretary and Mrs. J. Charleton  as treasurer. Mrs. E. Stilwell  and Mrs. E. Surtees are consultants.  The idea of the club is to  bring forward talent and personality to the people of the  surrounding district.

Quick relief of the  pain may be obtained from a  small tablet of nitroglycerine  plaiced under the tongue ^ iroxu  whence this drug is rapidly absorbed.  At a site where an artery is  narrowed and roughened inside,  a clot of blood may form, the  sudden blocKage produced is called a coronary occlusion or coronary thrombosis. When this occurs a portion of the heart muscle is deprived of its blood supply, altogether and the" affected  area of muscle may be more or  less destroyed. This constitutes  the familiar type of "heart attack" wherein a patient experiences very severe heart pain^ becomes pale and perspires, and-  may collapse.  Such an attack may be fatal,  but most of them are not. With  modern treatment, chances of a  good recovery are excellent. The  pain in coronary thrombosis is  similar to anginal pain, b"t  usually more severe, spreads  more widely, and does not dis-  anpear quickly with rest or nitroglycerine..  Most- patients with cardiac  pain of the types just described  tolerate it with surprising calmness, particularly when they  have learned their limitations,  if any, and have become accustomed to living with a heart condition. But not so with the much  commoner chest pain that occurs in nervous or anxious persons. These patients, in whom  the heart is normal, complain  more-often and more bitterly for  their distress is varv real and  quite unpleasant. Theirs is not  a disease of the he-art, but an  emotional disturbance.  The heart has long been re-  graded! as the seat of the emotions. That is why we often use  such terms as "heart-ache",  "heart-break" and "putting one's  heart into" some endeavor. Thus  it is not surprising that patients  suilering from nervous tension,  or emotional upsets, often experience pain oyer or around the  region of the heart. This discomfort takes many forms ���  most often it is a steady ache  unaer tne left breast, sometimes  punctuated by sharp stabs, and  it may spread to the left shoulder-blade and down the left  arm/ It is this latter radiation,  which also occurs in true heart  pain, that frightens patients  about their hearts; the fear thus  caused serves to increase nerves tension and so a vicious  circle is set. up. B-t this pain  differs from true heart pain in  several important ways which  make its recognition, as a rule,  easy!  It", is well to the left of the  breast bone, it persists for long  psriods regardless of activity,  and it is often associated with  other rymptons of nervous tension ; such as exhaustion, insomnia and flatulence. Often nervous (tension causes other heart  symptoms such as palpitation  and a sense of needing a deep  breath, as well a* the chest, pain.  But even this trio of symptoms  is characteristic of anxiety and  net of heart disease.  Patients with these symptoms  of nervous origin often discontinue physical activities such as  golf:or curling, and sometimes  even* their jobs, in the mistaken  beli?f that rest will relieve them.  Much: to their surprise, the  symptoms persist and even become worse. This result is understandable because the patient  has reduced his outlets for nerv-  o-sa-B-B-���-u--Ju--n-i-Miaa--M_B_(  Robert D. Wright N.D.  NATUROPATHIC     PHYSICIAN  Graduate of  Cal.

Nervous persons often  find they can "work off" these  symptoms whereas the patient  with heart disease finds his discomfort increased by exertion.  There are many other causes  of pain in the chest such as disease of the pleura or lungs, conditions affecting the muscles cf  the chest wall, and diseases of  the gastrointestinal tract.
