Mr. Donaldson  explained how Bob Burns had  grown up with Gibsons and  entered the municipal field  maiiy years ago to become one  of the foremost village clerks  in British Columbia. The fact  the Board of Trade in Gibsons  had selected Mr. Burns as  Good Citizen of the Year revealed the esteem in which  Mr.  Burns was held.  Pall-bearers included Chairman A. E. Ritchey of the village council, Fred Crowhurst  and Harold Wilson, former  members of the council, Fred  Holland of Gibsons and W.  Bone, chartered accountant in  Vancouver.

RED CROSS MEETING  The annual meeting of Gibsons and Port Mellon Red  Cross branch will be held in  the Coast News office starting  at 2 p.m., Sat., Jan.*30. Reports  for the year and operations  dealing with the March Red  Cross campaign will be on the  agenda.  Bank officials have notified  Sechelt District School board  .that money is now available  for school construction.  The amount mentioned was  in the region of $150,000  which is. close to but not the  complete requirements as outlined in the plebiscite involving $211,100 on which taxpayers voted and passed last May  No announcement in regards  to the freeing of school boards  from strictures against building has so far been made by  government    authorities.     All  that has happened is that Bank  of Montreal officials in Vancouver have notified the school",  board that the sum of $150,008  will be available for building  operations.  This announcement from the-  banks comes some eight  months after taxpayers had approved the expenditure. School  board officials are awaiting  some clue or announcement on.  the change of governmental a%-  titude towards new school con-  strucion which has been held  in abeyance for some time.  Second concert Feb. 3  The second Overture Concerts program of the season  will take place Wednesday,  Feb. 3, 8 p.m., in Elphinstone  High School.

Gloria Ali-  ani and William Diard have  appeared with great success  both as soloists as well as a  duo-ensemble.  Canadian audiences are already familiar with Mr. Di-  ard's career in the very successful Chanticleer Quartet. As  soloist with the Robert Shaw  Chorale, he toured throughout Europe and the Near East.  In opera, Mr. Diard is famous  for coloratura tenor repertoire. His national successes  include The Barber of Seville,  Don Pasquale and Don Giovanni.  Miss Aliani's background includes opera, concert and television in both the - United  States and Europe. Miss Ali-  ani returned to this country  from Italy for a triumphant  appearance at the Italian Em-  bEGsy in Washington, D. C. at  the request of Ambassador  Manlio Brosio. Subsequently,  she appeared with the New*  Orleans O^era Company in"  important  roles.  Thin season Miss Aliani will  fulfill engagements in Rio de  Janeiro, Buenos Aires and  Montivideo. Audiences who  have heard and applauded*  "Aliani and Diard" agree their  fine artistie standards vocally  and interpretatively place  them in the foremost rank of  young artists.  PTAs plan meetinss  SECHELT  A PTA family night will be  held in the near future with  lots of local talent on deck.  Anyone with entertainment  talent no matter how small is  asked to help, and contact Mrs.  L. Plumridge, Mrs. Evans or  Mrs. Al Fox. Mrs. Dorothy  Stockwell is in charge of tickets.

Stupid indifference  Why are a few of you so stupid   This question is asked by a school principal on the Sun-  ) Coast in a school letter. This letter which Madeira Park  school hopes to turn out quite often is the first of this year's  The question asked by the principal is a normal one and  answer should not be tod difficult but perhaps some minds  trying to make a decision: However, here is part of the  publication as" written by the principal:  We have a nice schoolhiiilding here and a splendid gym.  I think that your teachers do take a fine interest in your  ���fpeagress; but the world's most capable teachers and the most  ���afafoorate building imaginable will not provide you with a good  jatocation unless you yourself are willing and anxious to obtain  ���3L Your attitude toward learning generally and an earnest effort -  *3te <fc each task well are the determining factors.  To put it bluntly, you will profit from your education in  apnportion to the way in which you do each day's work. If, any-  ISnft, you don't do homework and bluff your way through class  gp*t&e*ading you did do it; or, if you copy it from someone else  ���gast-before the bell, whom do you think you are fooling��� the  Iteasdher? NO! It is yourself you are fooling, and you are at the  sums, time cheating your parents, who are ambitious for you to  ^stja niche where you can have a foothold in this highly com-  aaSiiive world.  Try having fun at school through the proper channels:  TaSteatLve behaviour, assigned homework plus a little indepen-  4��bb&. study in your worst subjects and your best ones, and plan-  2��k1 jparticipation in sports and school activities will help you  :***��&�� She most from your school years. This is what school is set  i********^ to do for you.  Why are a few of you so stupid that you refuse by your  ato&a&rence and fooling around to take advantage of it?  H. L. Buckley, principal.  Govt, by commission  The Gordon committee report on organization of govern-  meaB&. in Ontario has been presented to Premier Frost of Ontario  affiyfc it is a document which should be studied by all interested  *ifta. i-femocratic government.  The report advocates the return to fundamental principles  ^aSEBritish justice and parliamentary practice. This hits directly  at ahe means used by some governments, including British Col-  to delegate* authority to commissions and thereby remove  ftom the jurisdiction and responsibilities of legislatures.  commissions become a law unto themselves and they do  m�� allow any appeal to our courts which is far from democratic  aftactfee^  The report calls for allowing appeals to courts from de-  s^Sfcos of the 85 Ontario boards, commissions and agencies. It  ^jK-jg-SRthat boards provide written reasons for decisions, and urges  aaase- authority by elected representatives over financial matters  i&L which commissions and boards are involved, also more min-  j&tmiai control of such operations. This would involve account-  alHKty to elected representatives, something which does not  ��� sw^in.tke British Columbia legislature.  The report stresses a fundamental principle that cabinet  samstera must accept responsibility * for the performance of  ;lto��afe and agencies. What has happened "in^"British Columbia  Sfe.ffi�� past is that "it is not in the public nterest" to discuss such  ���qBtsS&scs; oa the floor of the legislature. Does not the spending of  ���acSfions-an highways, bridges, power and other spending outlets  atfE'tite British Columbia government or any other government  "aieessime a "matter of public interest" even if there is nothing to  Sgala? Surely the taxpayers have something more than the right  *Sfe bave taxes taken from them. Taxpayers should also get an ac-  <sjanting of where it has gone, how it has been spent and why.  Ihe Gordon report also has.kept? ijp mind'Parkinson's law*  iSecause It recommends curbing   the size  of government and  ggSteamlining operations to achieve more efficient and economic-  ;asl grperations.  Perhaps members of the British Columbia government  issasp-get around to reading a copy of the report, if someone pre-  ssssa^them with a copy, and check over their sins of omission by  -G^mmi'ssion. This is a wild, wild dream. Do not be too hopeful,  $a*ar: reader.  However a return to a normal course of justice would ad-  ���mace British Columbia to a higher status in the eyes of many  :-*Sajsaiiians.  Editor: In your "Coast News"  of Jan. 14, the cheery greetings  by way of poem by Miss Robina  A. Ross are appreciated.  "A guid Scots tongue tae  uphaud Rlcht and aye wi Wrong  tae differ" seldom lacks power.  I hope Miss Ross will again  let us have the pleasure of her  talent at a not too far distant  date.  Margaret LeFeuvre  * * *  Editor: In your issue of Jan.  14 is an editorial headlined "Unwanted Brawls." You say in part  "Police Court news carried by  the Coast News is the most widely read information this paper  publishes."  My work, as you know, takes  me from Port Mellon to Earls  Cove and into the sideroads between. The question in the minds  of those I met as regards the  Police Court news is this* "Is  every case reported without fear  or favor."  Possibly you can make as  definite statement on that as  you have regarding the importance of the Police Court News  and I am sure your many readers  will be glad to have enlightenment on  this.  B.'L. COPE  Note: The answer is yes.  #    *    *  Editor: I feel that a reply to  (Mrs.) Jen. Monrufet's letter of  Jan. 14 is in order. Evidently the  writer, Mrs. Monrufet, was in  full accord with the views expressed by Dave Rees' letter  which was in the Coast News of  Jan. 7. Mrs. Monruiet's letter  leaves no doubt that it is in direct .reference to a resolution  which she presented at the meeting of the Ladies Auxiliary to  Branch No. 219, Canadian Legion  on Jan. 4. This resolution was  then forwarded to the Men's  branch for  consideration.  As president of Branch 219, 1  feel it is my duty to clerify this  situation. The Matter was discussed at our general meeting  on Jan. 8, and we were difinitely  of the opinion that this resolution was in contravention to our  by-laws. Mrs." Monrufet asked  that a copy of the resolution be.  sent to the Prime. Ministei' o��  Canada. It was therefore moved,  seconded and carried that "This  Resolution be not approved1 by  the Branch."  I suggested later to the author  that she send a copy to the M.P.  for Coast Capilano, Mr. Wm.  Payne, or that it could be put  before a meeting of the Roberts  Crek Community association. It  was presented to the Community  association meeting on Jan. 13.  It was not possible for the. matter to be discussed at the \ time,  so was held over until their next  meeting to be held on Feb. 10.  Mrs. Monrufet, in her letter,  to the Coast News, proceeds to  castigate all and sundry who are  not entirely in agreement with  her, and ends her letter on a  very sour note, with the verse of  poetry "That we men are sadly  lacking  in intestinal fortitude.  How much nicer it would have  been if she had quoted the last  verse of the immortal Bard's:  For'a that  Then let us pray that come it  may  As come it will for 'a that  That sense and worth 'oer 'a the  earth  May bear the 'gree and 'a that  For 'a that and1 'a that  Tis coming yet for 'a that  That man to man the world o'er  .Pr-epori.

This is a term of French origin  used in Canada for a horse-drawn  passenger sled, usually one-seated and often painted in bright  colors. As the term spread from  Quebec to English-speaking communities, it often came to meai  ' 'carry-all." Actually the r carryall?" :Jwas a '���heavier home-made  vehicle hke the French-Canadian  berline. The carriole corresponded rather to a cutter.  When did Queen Victoria watch  a lacrosse game?

Beers toured the British  Isles again in 1883 with a lacrosse team that included 13  Caughnawaga Indians. He was  born in Montreal in 1843 and  died there in 1900.  Shall "brithers" be for 'a that.  WILLIAM  GILBERT,  president,  Branch No. 219, Canadian Legion,  Roberts Creek, B.C.  *      *      3C  Edior: In your editorial of Jan.  14   issue,    entitled   "Cash    for  credit", you quoted J. E. Coyne,  governor of the Bank of Canada,  as saying, "Real capital can only  come into existence through ths  application   of   human labor to  produce durable   things,  not by  the  multiplication  of money or  credit."  The first part of this statement  is true but one must realize that  the human labor cannot be applied until the financial capital  is provided and in the majority  of" cases it is provided by the  multiplication of credit.  Mr. Coyne goes on to say that  the banks manage a pool of credit   (personal   savings  and  other,  funds) which is lent and re-lentl  wherever it is needed.  Here again this statement is  only half true! The banks may  manage a pool of credit but they  do not loan out the money of  their depositors.  The proof of this was provided  by none other than Mr. Coyne's  predecessor, Mr. Graham Towers, when he was cri the stand  giving evidence to the Banking  and Commerce Committee of  Parliament  sitting in 1939.  He said "The banks cannot, of  course, loan the money of their  depositors. What the depositors  do with these savings is something quite beyond the control  of the banks.''  When asked if the banks create  the medium of exchange (money>  Mr. Towers said "That is right.  That is what they are there for  .... That is banking business,  just in the same way that a steel  plant makes steel. [The manufacturing process consists  of mak  ing a pen-and-ink or type written entry on a card or in a book.  That is all."  So, Mr. Editor, where is tha  cash backing up these book entries? I can see no "Cash for  Credit" here.  VINCENT H.

The magazine, called "Canadian Chess Ghat," is designed  to appeal to the half million or  , more . Canadians who play  chess) regularly, either in serious tournaments or casually,  according to Dr. Nathan Di-  ���yinsky, an associate professor  in the UBC mathematics department.  Co-editing the magazine  with Dr. Divinsky is Elod  Macskasy, a UBC mathematics lecturer, who isi Canadian  open chess champion and a  Hungarian chess master.  Dr. Divinsky, who came to  UBC last year from the Uni-  ersity of Manitoba, is a former chess champion of that  province and was a member  of the Canadian team which  took part in international  'chess matches in Amsterdam  in 1954.  Chess, Dr. Divinsky claims,  is becoming increasingly popular in Canada. He estimates  that there are" 50' chess clubs  in B. C. alone and about 500  in all of Canada.  Most of Canada's strength  in the game has been the result of immigration, particularly from Eastern Europe,  where the game is very popular, Dr.  Divinsky claims.  "At one time Canadians who  played chess were considered  a little odd," says Dr. Divinsky, "but I think that attitude  has now been overcome and  the game is gaining in stature."  The magazine, which contains current news, sample  games from important tourna  ments, a section for beginners,  articles; and problems on chess,  as well as official news of the  Chess Federation of Canada,  will be exchanged with chess  organizations which. , publish  magazines in other parts of  the world, including Russia  arid East European countries.  drink  IS  a  8  Mission Orange  A fine Orange Soft Drink made with  California Valencia Oranges  !  ���BWumminiiiiHimwiinBiimi  .^ffe-  CARLOAD PURCHASING BRINGS YOU THIS .

A question and answer summary of the sonic boom phenomenon and its accompanying  noise   and damage potential.  Why -won't a sonic boom  produce structural damage?  Newton's famous Second  Law of Motion states, in effect, that a body stays in a  state of rest or continues to  move in a straight line unless  some force is exerted on it.  This is the basis of a very important fact. If a building or  any of its components are to  be moved or set vibrating,  they must be set in motion by  the force applied to the "outside of the house.  Applying the principle of  Newton's Law and some; engineering methods it is possible to evaluate the effect of  forces described on a wood  &tud wall with a plaster^ inside surface. Such walls 'generally run between 8 and 10  feet in height and are construct  ed from 2 x 4 studs 16 inches  on centers. Without considering strength contributed by  the sheathing, siding and plaster, it is assumed that the  wood stud takes  all the load.  As an example, consider a  vertical strip in the middie of  the wall, 16 inches wide, to  represent the loading on a, single stud. On a single stud* the  load per stud is 5x10x1-1/5 or  67 pounds. The shear at the top  arid bottom is 33Vk pounds;  the maximum tension in? the  stud at the middle is 200  pounds per square inch of stud  Most codes call for at least  3-12 penny nails to fasten each-  a 3 pt. buttered or margarined    stud to ;th�� plate..

Compare the forces described to the shear strength of 3  12 penny nails, which equals  100x3 equals 300 pounds and  the tensile resistance of the  stud, which for most wood is  at least 1000 pounds per square  inch. The conclusion is obvious.  The same kind of calculations can be made on block or  brick walls; ��hearing force  versus shearing resistance and  tensile strength due to bending versus tensile resistance  of mortar. The results are  again equally obvious.  A great deal is heard about  plaster cracks being caused by  sonic booms. Most building  authorities say in order to prevent plaster cracks, the deflection at the middle of the beam  or girder should not exceed  1/360th of the span length. A3  long as a 10-foot stud does not  bend more than Vz inch at the  middle from its normal position, the wall plaster will not  crack. By calculation, the deflection of the stud wall under load, again assuming the  stud alone takes all the load,  will be about Va of the deflec-  ion required to crack the plaster.  Calculations of this kind  can ibe extended to various elements of the house, such as  roofs, side walls, porches, and  other types of construction.  They will all demonstrate  what has been shown above;  that sonic booms "-normally  fall far short of causing sufficient load to crack walls,  roofs, plaster, floors, walks,  etc. The total of all this can  be summed up very simply. A  whole house including the  roof receives a very quick and  : light: squeeze by the pressure  of a sonic boom.  ST.

Few do. Total amount written in Canada in 1958 was  less than  $100,000.  But, if you own buildings  in tbe Upper St. Lawrence  Valley or on the coast of British Columbia, you should consider coverage.  The earth under you is like  a badly set junket being carried by a nervous waiter.  On the latest seismic probability maps, there Canadian  areas are ranked as hazardous  as California.  At least one expert has predicted a major quake in Quebec within 30 years.  Aware of the dangers, insurance companies have boosted  their rates for earthquake insurance by as much, asi 400%  in  Montreal and Vancouver.  Highest rates apply to dwellings with brick veneered walls,  wood joist floors and roofs,  are now $12 per 81,000 for  three years, up from $3.  On the other hand, rates for  frame or frame stucco dwellings are down from $1.80 to  $1.50.  Reason: Brick veneer crumbles and falls as mortar is disturbed. A frame building shifts  Commercial risks range  from $12 per 1,000 for three  years (for buildings with concrete brick walls) down to  $1.50 for a 3,000 sq. ft. frame  building under three stories.  Damage which an earthquake will do to a particular  building depends on four factors.  Dr. J. H. Hodgson, chief of  the division of seismology, Dominion Observatory, lists them  Actual   energy   released   by  the  earthquake.  Distance of the building  from the centre of the earthquake.  Nature of site and soil on  which the building stands. A  building on a hill is more subject to damage than one on the  level. ���  Type of building, its design  and construction.  Buildings designed to resist  earthquakes through rigid construction and provision for the  effect of lateral forces came  through the Southern California quake of 1952 almost undamaged.  Damage to  schools  in Call-��  fornia's Kern County was $12.5 *'  million,   almost   entirely   confined to buildings which were  .  not earthquake  resistant.  But the $2.8 million Arvin  High School, designed to resist  tremors, suffered less than 1%  damage.  In designing the latest earthquake   probability   map,   Dr.  Hodgson said:  "We had first  to recognize   .  that the  St. Lawrence Valley  arid the coast of British  Columbia   had a  seismic -history  comparable to California's.  "There is no evidence that  building practices are any better in Canada than in California,  nor   that   soil  conditions  Cameron heads  Harbor Legion  Zone Commander Ron Haig officiated at the installation of officers of Pender Harbour: brand  of the Canadian Legion recently.   .t  The slate follows:  President, Jim Cameron; first  vice-president, Clint Anderson;  second vice-president, B.

A capacity turnout of  honorary, associate and Club  members, together with their,  wives, and members of the  Ladies' Auxiliary and their husbands enjoyedl a pleasant ever  ning of music, song and dance.  Music was provided by Mrs.  Shaughnessy, piano; Messrs Steve  Dediluke and George McKinnon.  guitars and Roy Dusenberry.  piano-accordion. Ladies of . the  auxiliary served refreshments.  are safer.  "Indeed, in Eastern Canada,  where there are so many glacier deposits, soil conditions  are probably worse."  One of the severest quakes;  ever recorded in Canada occurred in August, 1956, 50 miles  off the Queen Charlotte Islands.  Had its epicentre been on  Vancouver Island, the city of  Victoria would have been reduced to a shambles of broken  masonry and twisted steel.  Under the wreckage of razed  buildings, hundreds of Victorians might have been buried.  The quake as five times  worse than the $70 million one  that struck Ecuador three  weeks before, claiming thousands of lives.  Quakes in Quebec are due  to the Laurentian shield coming back to shape a^ter the ice  age of 200 million years ago.  Quebec then was buried under frozen masses 4,000 feet  deep and the release of glacier  pressure has caused a shift of  forces in the earth's surface  crust.  When a glacier retreats and  the ice melts, the earth rises.  to its former position just as a  pressed rubber ball springs  back into shape when pressure  is released.  Actually there is no such  thing as terra firma. Geologic  movements are going on all  the time.  : There have been three major earthquakes along the St.  Lawrence watershed since 1925  and on the basis of past per  formance another major one is  coming due.  One in 1925 occurred 40  miles below Quebec city. A  quake occurred at Timiska-  ming on the upper Ottawa river in 1935 and in 1944 there  was a major quake at Cornwall.  AH were about as severe as  the one that caused $50 million damage in Long Beach,  Calif.  Damage at Cornwall was  only $2 million.  But, the insurance men ask,  what would damage have been  had the quake occurred just  60 miles east in the heart of  downtown Montreal?  "It has just so happened,"  said    one   seismologist,   "that  structures liable to severe damage were not situated near  the origins of Canadian shocks"  "Canada is building up rapidly. The earthquakes will  continue. You can draw the-  obvious and inevitable conclusion."

But she's an Imperial customer all the same and an important one as far as you are concerned.  How ships like this giant  grain carrier help Imperial keep  the cost of gasoline down  '.*-**/  The fuel used by the T. R. McLagan is a thick, heavy, black oil���quite  different from the light volatile gasoline your car needs.  If gasoline were the only product made from crude, it would cost  much more to produce. Instead, research and refining specialists in  companies like Imperial have developed ways to utilize all parts of the  crude, from light gases for making plastics, for example, to heavy asphalt  for pavement.  Iri between are hundreds of other products, like the oils, greases and  fuel used by the T. R. McLagan and the lubricants for your car.  Imperial's efficiency in getting everything out of the crude oil means  the prices of all products are low. That's one reason government figures  show that in the last five years the average price of things people buy has  gone up nearly 16 per cent, while gasoline has actually gone down about  half of one per cent.* *DBS zvholesale price index.

It is the same quality   soldiers   complain about in  their   officers.   "They call  them,  "Brass Hats";  "Stufed Shirts."  Even Queen Victoria deplored  something like this in tfae clergy  of her day. She said she had  known only one bishop who had  remained humble after his elevation.

P. for this constituency and as it concerns  hospital costs borne by the federal government the letter is  printed in its entirety.  BABY SHOWER  A baby shower was held at  the home of Mrs. J. Hicks in  honor of Lea Ann Nestman,  baby daughter of Mr. and Mrs  Leo Nestman. Guests included  Mrs. E. Nestman sr., Miss Cecile Nestman, Mrs. Blongren  sr., Mrs Bonnie and Mrs. Jpsie  Blongren, Mrs. Frank Wheeler, Mrs. W. Dodds, Mrs. J.  Nestman, Mm A. DeEnglis,  Mrs. Hazel Liste, Mrs. F. Yates  and Mrs. W. Gilbertson. Mrs.  Hicks and Mrs. R. Gaines were  co-hostesses.  Dear Mr. Payne: As you know,  there has been some discussioa  regarding the fact that the Dominion Government does not  share in interest and depreciation charges on buildings under  the Hospital Insurance and Diag  nostic Services Act. While this  may not have come up in your  area, I felt that it might be useful for you to have a brief explanation of the situation from  the Government's point of view.  The first fact I would stress  is this. The exclusion of interest and depreciation charges on  buildings from shareable costs  mnder the "Hospital Insurance  program was approved by Parliament before the present Government took office. The Program  does, of course, provide for federal sharing of depreciation on,  or outright purchase of equipment.  In the fall of 1957, we took a  careful look at the problem and  came to the conclusion that because of such factors as variations in the capital debt picture  across the country, the Insurance  New accounting  ffo  ornce opens  Secretary - managership of  Pender Harbour Credit Union  has been relinquished by Jim  Tyner, who has taken over the  premises formerly occupied by  Peggy's Cafe, at Madeira Park.  The building has been remodelled into an attractive  suite of offices. Mr. Tyner, a  practicing public accountant  will* in future, confine his  business to that of general accounting and business management consultant.  His place in the Credit Union has been taken by Thomas  L. Keillor who resides at Mid-  dlepoint.  Mr.   Keillor   was   formerly  field representative- fdj^ B.:C.  Co-operative Wholesale organization, prior to which he had?  extensive   experience   in   the?-  transportation business, having'  served with the C. N. R. and  Trans-Canada Airlines. He was  born in St. Thomas, Ont., and  first came to the West Coast  in 1912.  Oil     -4.ecE.~-j-.  \  n cemetery bd.  <*? n^onal  Program should be allowed to  operate for a period of time before any change was considered  in this regard. I indicated then,  and have done so on many occasions since, that we would reexamine this matter after some  experience has been gained with  tlhe Program.  At the same time, the Government did feel that something had  to be done towards meeting the  capital problems of hospitals.  Accordingly, as of January 1,  1958, we more than doubled the  amount of federal assistance  available under the Hospital Construction Grant and extended its  scope to include interne's quarters and, more importantly,  renovation and improvement of  existing hospital facilities. As an  indication of what this increased  assistance has meant in practical  terms, I would point out that  some $2,000,000 in federal funds  have been available to British  Columbia in the fiscal years 1958-  59 and 1959-60 over and above  what would have been offered  had the previous regulations  been in force.  Another point worth noting i-s  that certain provinces have taken  action towards solving the problem themselves. This has been  made possible in large measure  by the fact that they are receiving under the Hospital Insurance  and Diagnostic Services Act substantial amounts of federal funds  which had formerly not been  available. In the case of British  Columbia, for example, advances  totalling roughly $24,000,000  ha've been paid from its plan's  inception on July 1st, 1958, to  October 31st, 1959.  ,;Finally,   I   would   make   this  general   observation.   The   more  financial responsibility the senior levels of government assume  with    regard    to hospitals, the  mare control they must inevitably exert over these institutions.  If public funds were to be used  fully   to  finance  all  aspects   of  hospital building as well as hospital    operating    costs,    public  agencies would in effect be taking over the hospitals. The Dominion   Government   feels   that  this    kind    of thing should be  avoided at all costs, a view which  I am sure is shared not only by  the   provinces,    but particularly  by municipalities, hospital boards  and ?religious orders. I would not  go as far as to'say that any further e^try on the part of the Dominion/ Government   into   this  :jField * wopld necessarily lead to  such centralization, but I do feel  that "this aspect of the problem  nierits   very   careful   consideration.  jjl   trust   that   these few comments   may   be  helpful should  you be broached about this subject.��� J.

Health Week is aimed at raising standards of health and living through telling every family  ih Canada how to prevent illness and preserve health.  "Health is a matter of individual concern, and is also of national importance. The vital  thing is to have everyone help  himself," said Dr. Gordon Bates,  General Director of the League.  "This year, emphasis is being  placed upon the formation ot  health committees in service  clubs-, women's erouos. and other  organizations. In this way, the  democratic principles behind the  voluntary organization is carried  out," he said.  ��� Dr. Bates pointed out that Canada has every possible advant-  a��?�� materi*"Hv. for having a high  standard of health. However, it  is a lamentable fact that this  country actually lags behind some  other countries who do not have  the same material advantages.
