The doctors are in attendance and diagnose a rare  complication where the blood  will not clot. The cure is six  pints of fresh blood ��� imme-  diatly. Blood type? Unknown  ��� uncommon O negative required. Only one known on  the peninsula.  In this manner another crisis developed at St. Mary'ts  Hospital, Pender Harbour during the wee hours of August  20. Mrs, Verna Wolsynuk of  Wilson Creek is well and home  new because a number of persons, some known, others anonymous, gave up their sleep  and their blood when the hos*-  pital called.  One pint of blood is kept at  the hospital at all times. This  was administered immediately  and kept the patient's blood  supply up. The only known  donor was roused from his bed  by telephone and hurried to  the hospital from Sechelt.  This; transfusion started the  plotting process. and slowed  the hemorrhage.. ;���  In the meantime the Powell  River Hospital was alerted  and located two donors. The  Red Cross Blood Transfusion  Service located two more in  Vancouver. The blood from  Powell River arrived first. It  was rushed to Saltery Bay by  th e R.C.M.P. where it was  picked up by Red Nicholson  of Jervis Inlet Water Taxi. He  delivered it to the hospital at  3.30 Sunday morning. This  was sufficient to stop the  bleeding. _.  The blood from Vancouver  was met at Horseshoe Bay by  Mercury Water Taxi and ruahr  ed to Gibsons.  Al   Byrnes of  Roy's Taxi took over and  drove through to Pender Harbour arriving at five in the  morning. This was administered and brought the patient's  circulation back to normal.  The doctors and the hospital thank everyone concerned  for their prompt and efficient  co-operation. Special thanks  goes to the donor from Sechelt  for his quick response to our  urgent call.  This crisis has focussed attention en the need for a list  of volunteer blood donors.  The hospital would like the  names of anyone willing to  give blood in the event of another emergency The calls are  quite rare  Plan petition  for water  At a meeting of West Sechelt's new water committee  at the home of Jack Northcote  a letter was read from the water rights branch, in Victoria  with a sample form enclosed.  This form was a petition  which will be circulated for  the signatures of property  owners. The water rights  branch letter also offered  guidance for the committee's  consideration.  The petitions are now being  prepared and will be* circulated among property owners for  their signatures. Further details were discussed before the  meeting adjourned. Present  were Roy Cumberland, Graham Craig, Jack Northcote,  Ted Fitzgerald, Norman Fra��k  lin and Roily Reid.  /  To clear up any misunderstanding the new Overture  Concerts association family  plan will cover two adults and  one child with other children  of the family obtaining free  admission   tc  all   concerts.  Last week the Coast News  erred in reporting two adults  and  two   children  to be paid  for then the  rest free.  It is expected this plan will  help families to arrange to  .have their children attend the  reason's c-ncerts. Ticket sales  are reportd to be coming, along  nicely but those desiring to  join should not wait until the  last minute.

He can help  you! ;  A hint that Sechelt would  sr.on have a liquor store was  dropped Saturday night at a  Social Credit meeting in Sechelt's Legion Hall by Vince  Bracewell Social Credit nominee. He intimated that soon  people in that area would not  have to jcurney to Gibsons to  ���make liquor purchases.  The meeting was addressed  by Hon. N. P. Staecy, minister  of agriculture who reported  he had in the last 16 days addressed 34 meetings and that  the Sechelt meeting was the  third event of the day for him.  Chairman Ron Haig of Gibsons   introduced  Vince Brace-  Squamish road local  issue says Gargrave  Six month residential, commercial and industrial expenditure on the Sunshine Coast  for the period ending June 3.0,  according to figures collated  by B. C. Electric: totals $1,345,-  800.  Based on this figure for the  first half of the year it is quite  likely the year end figure will  be the largest yet recorded.  The total last year was $1,104,7  079 and this was the highest  amount up to that time.  To point up the way the area  is developing $950,950 was  spent on commercial projects  in the area and of this amount  the largest sum, $700,000, Was  -spent in Port Mellon area by  Canadian Forest Products on  . improvements A fox  future   ej^  The Squamish road is the  key local issue in this provincial election campaign, said  Tony Gargrave, CCF candidate, at Sechelt Tuesday evening. Mr Gargrave was speaking  in   the  Legion  Hall.  Tlie road around Howe  Sound from Port Mellon  through Woodfibre to Squamish would service 25,000 residents and the 500,000 people  that live in the greater Vancouver area, the CCF candidate said. All Mackenzie .candidates should support this  project. Only when. this is  done will the Sechelt Peninsula really start to go ahead.  A ferry and road over one of  the Howe Sound islands will  not do the job, Gargrave said.  The two provincial issues in  the CCF platform that are creating widespread interest in  the campaign said Gargrave  are its power policy and its  medical care plan.  Sechelt's efforts to obtain a  breakwater, maintaining it  was a necessity with a large  increase in water travel taking place. It would be a federal government project, he  added.  He also hinted it would not  be long before Sechelt had its  own liquor store so it would  not be necessary for the upper end of the Sunshine Coast  to have to get liquor from Gibsons. He dealt with the ferry  situation and Squamisn highway in the same way he did  in his Gibsons speech adding  a warning that the Squamish  road in winter might not b��  free of snow at times.  Mr. Steacy recalled that hig  last visit to this area was 45  years ago and many cnanees  had taken place. Not only has  that area grown but the province has grown also but he  said he had yet to hear any  mention of this area in the  paid only $3.92 for 500 KWH    house  from  the   sitting   mem-  well to an audience numbering about 30 and ih opening  remarks Mr. Bracewell said it  was time "we got away from  a selfishness and materialism  for a new philosophy and  Social Credit, he believed, was  that philosophy. It would be  up to the people of this province to decide if outside money will come to this province  for industrial purposes. Their  vote will decide.  He pointed to the work the  government had been doing  among the Indians and outlined some of the educational  honors members of Indian  bands had earned this last  year. Mr. Bracewell supported  tension .of A operation.. Not- i?*f" ;-Tne public, ownership cof the  eluded in any of these figures  is that of something like $30,-  000 or more spent on street  paving operations at Port Mellon, Gibsons, Sechelt and other  points. This does not take, into  consideration any road work,  paving or otherwise, done by  the provincial roads department.  There were five residential  permits issued in Gibsons for  new homes in the first six  months. These totalled $34,700  Sechelt issued two residential  permits totalling $3,650 but  iri the unorganized area where  most new homes were constructed the total covering 55,  new homes was $356,500.  ���.This means that 62 new  homes were constructed on the  Sunshine Coast-in the first six  months  of the year.  Commercial ventures / were  nil in Gibsons, $36,950 in Sechelt and close to $700,000 for  industrial expansion in Port  Mellon.  , electric generation facilities  in the province mean low cost  power and low cost natural  gas for homes and industries,  he; said. The B. C; Electric  have one of the highest rates  iri Canada, he said. He told  the meeting that Toronto, Ottawa and Winnipeg with public ownership of electricity  have only half the rates of  B. C. He said that Ottawa city  Crew gets  phones ready  A 12-man crew, under the  direction of foreman Jimmy  Crosato, is installing 650 dial  phones hi Sechelt in preparation for the simultaneous conversion Nov. 19 of the Sechelt  and Gibsons manual exchanges to  automatic operation.  A B. C. Telephone Company  tion of approximately 950 dial  spokesman said that installa-  instruments needed to replace  magneto phones in Gibsons  will begin about Sept.  1.  Total combined cost of the  Sechelt and Gibsons conversion is approximately $850,000  Cost of installing dial sets and  rewiring of subscribers' premises alone will total approximately $26,000.  Subscribers will assist in the  conversion by cutting a short  wire marked with a yellow tag  connecting the magneto and  dial telephones at the time of  the changeover. Automatic  switching equipment necessary  for dial operation is being installed in new central office  buildings.  BAND   PRACTICE  Elphinstone High School  band will hold a practice at .3  pjn. Thurs., Sept. 1 ki the  music room of the high school.  Mrs. Hubert  Evans dies  Her many friends will be  saddened to learn of the passing of Ann Winter.Evans at  her Roberts Creek home on  Aug.  26.  Born in Ontario in 1891, Mrs  Evans was a. graduate of Victoria College, University of  Toronto. She leaves her husi-  band, Hubert A., and three  children, Elizabeth Bakewell,  West Vancouver; Joan Winter  North Kamloops; Jonathon,  Ottawa and nine grandchildren; also a brother, Edwm  Winter, Coronach, Sask., and  a sister Adele M, Winter, Vancouver.  For eight years Mrs. Evans  taught in the Indian villages  of Kitimat and Upper Skeena,  and the desire to better the  lot of the Indian people became one of her prime motivations. This interest was revealed in many of her articles and  stories for children which  have been published in Canada  .and United States.  Through the years Mrs. Evans was actively concerned  with various community projects. She was the prime mover in founding the Roberts  Creek Credit Union. While  serving on the East Roberts  Creek School Board Mrs. Evans worked for the amalgamation of schools in this area. It  was just over a year ago she  gave her time and strength in  ���organizing the class for retarded children.  A member of the Vancouver  Meeting, Society of Friends  (Quakers) Mrs. Evans' funeral  was held under their auspices  at the Nunn and Thompson  Chapel, Vancouver, followed  ���by cremation.

Gargrave said people did  not believe him when he quoted these figures but they are  ih Dominion Bureau of Statistics records for all to see.  Mr. Gargrave said that the  CCF would bring in a medical  care plan for all citizens immediately. The CCF would not  wait for a contribution from  the federal government, but  would start now. Those who  say that they would wait until the federal government  contributes half of the cost  are only stalling, he told the  meeting.

A universal medical plan for  all is the civilized way to look  after our sick, he said.  The CCF medical plan  would charge a small fee, everybody would be covered,  and the patient would be entirely free to choose his own  doctor. Under the plan the  medical profession would be  in complete control of the  medical aspects of the plan  and would be free to come into the plan or remain outside  of the plan. No doctor would  be placed on salary said Gargrave, and payment for services rendered would be on  the same principle as the present private plans.  The chairman of the meeting was Mr. Joe Benner of  Sechelt. Mr Gargrave's next  meeting is at the Community  Hall, Port Mellon on Thursday, Sept. 1 at 8 p.m.  Canon's wife  dies in N.S.  Redroofs was saddened to  learn of the sudden death of  Mrs. Gertrude Greene, wife of  Canon Alan Greene, D.D. They  had just returned from a trip  to England and the continent  and were visiting their youngest daughter and her husband,  Rev. Robert Tuck at their  home in  Canso,   Nova Scotia.  Canon and Mrs. Greene arrived in Montreal about Aug.  23 and proceeded on to Canso  where Mrs. Greene suffered a  heart attack and died on Aug.  25. Residents of Redroofs had  been looking forward to welcoming them home and plans  were underway for a homecoming party and presentation.  She was born in Toronto,  attended Havergale Ladies College, was a life member of the  Women's Auxiliary of the Ang  lican Church  of   Canada.  She leaves two sons and  three daughters, Alan and  Marjorie in Vancouver, John  in Toronto, Barbara in Spain  and Catherine in Nova Scotia.  Funeral announcement will  be announced later from Vancouver.  SCHOOL  TUESDAY  Next Tuesday morning a�� SB  o'clock Elphinstone High School  will welcome old and new ^students for the new school year.  Students will assemble in ;6he  auditorium where they will <&e  grouped into home rooms.  Students will be expected fo>  pay their fees for books, stu<isnt  council, and in. the case of grade  7's and new students, purchase  locks. The amount of the fees is  shown in an advertisement "m  this issue. The student associar-  tion"has set its fee at $1 for the  coming year; during the assembly  the first morning the need for  this fee will be outlined to ths  students.  This year full senior matriculation is offered by Elphinstone*  High". Successful completion of  this course will give the studeiit  full credit with the department  of education and will allow the-  student to proceed to the second  year of a university degree.  Students who are new to the  school district are asked to get  in touch with the school before*  Sept. 6. This does not apply to  the elementary students who attended Port Mellon, Gibsons, on  Roberts Creek schools.  Of interest to parents and students who are attending Elphinstone High for the first time is  the list of supplies for juniors.  In Home Economics, grade Ts  require: 1 sewing box, scissors,  needles (sizes 7 or 8), thimble,  Vi yard colored broadcloth and  tape measure. Students in art require library paste, Reeves tempo  discs, wax crayons. For physical  education all students require  running shoes and a uniform, details of which will be announced  during" the registration asembly.  On Wed., Sept. 7, school WiU  begin regular classes. 2   Coast News, Sept. 1, 1960.  *  Published every Thursday by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.,  _ .0.

A new chairman  Choice of Mrs. Charlotte Jackson of Wilson Creek as chairman of the Sechelt School District board is one which should be  welcomed. Mrs. Jackson has a background of experience covering at least eight years one of which was with the old school  ���hoard for the Sechelt area which was merged into the larger  Sechelt school board in 1946.  During the eight years of Mrs. Jackson's tenure with the  hoard the school district has grown considerably. Mrs. Jackson  -with her extensive knowledge of the operation of a school board  -will bring to bear on her decisions the experience of the past  along with the necessities of the future.  Sechelt District school board over the last few months has  had a somewhat ruffled existence due to dissatisfaction in one  -section over the proposal to keep grade nine in Sechelt at the.  aew Trail Bay Junior High School. Perhaps the board under the  ���Chairmanship of Mrs. Jackson will have smoother sailing. Let's  ttope so because in striving to keep everyone happy even a school  board has its moments of distraction. Sechelt school district cov-  ��rs a large area. Its problems are many. Co-operation can ibe  achieved!  Chronics major problem  The provincial government's move to take care of chronic  and convalescent hospital patients under a prepared plan announced last week by Hon. Eric Martin, minister of health services and hospital insurance, is an issue this paper has hammered at more than once.  It is long overdue when one considers the pressure placed  on hospitals where expensive space is taken up by patients who  ��ould be taken care of under less expensive circumstances. The  plan as announced by the minister comes effective Sept. 1.  In a speech to the Victoria Rotary Club, Aug. 25, when he  jmade the announcement, he digressed, as he said, to say a new  program of grants-in-aid would be started to non-profit societies  ifto assist in construction of nursing home type facilities for care  <��f ibedridden aged and infirm. These people are not affected by  rehabilitation measures.  The main part of his speech was given over to the rehabili-  itetion angle for patients whom doctors believe would benefit.  (Perhaps Mr. Martin has figures to show the rehabilitation angle  is more important than taking care of the bed-ridden. Perhaps it  is according to how one views the situation. Any person who can  fee rehabilitated has usually reached the point where a hospital  !foed is of secondary importance. But when one comes to the  chronic cases which are totally bedridden yet do not require hospital attention, the dollars and cents involved become a vital  ���factor.  The plan to assist non-profit organizations in constructing  mursing home type facilities for the care of chronics and aged is  ������worthwhile and in view of the medical fraternity"s efforts to  extend one's life span it would seem that the problem for tha  aged could be of more importance numerically than that of rehabilitation measures for other patients. However we should be  fthankful for anything constructive any government decides to  ���do.  A promise by Gaglardi  The move to get Hon. Phil Gaglardi to come into this area  and speak on the transportation and road problem while raised  ��at the Social Credit meeting Aug. 16 held in Gibsons Legion hall  ���runs second to the efforts of the combined boards of trade of the  ���Sunshine Coast.  At the last meeting of the Lower Mainland boards of trade  an. the Georgia Hotel Mr. Gaglardi when approached was sympa-  .Iftietic and promised he would visit the Sunshine Coast. Latest  ^formation to the combined boards of trade of Sechelt, Pender  iSaxbour and Gibsons is that he will likely appear in October.  tMr. Gaglardi expects to be re-elected!  A feather on the trail!  (By A. J. C.)  August is a holiday month for  Birds; the great -event of their  3rear is in the past, the nests are  empty and the young full-grown  and strong on the wing���so they  all gather in sociable groups to  enjoy life. Birds are most active  slow in early morning and again  in late evening, resting, hidden  and silent, through the central  lours of a hot day when only  "She tireless bees are abroad oa.  Sheir lawful occasion.  The particular structure of the  JLomemade roof of my lodge gives  it a "resonant quality to anyone  trying to sleep under it, and no  30oner does the woodpecker  souse the woods with his vigorous tattoo on some dry shell of  ���cedar ��� at the first paling of  the eastern sky ��� than the birds  2and on my roof with successive  thuds and much pattering about  areer the thin shakes that act as  ar sounding-board.  At this date they sing no more  and rarely call but the noise they  make on that roof is truly sur.  prising. As I gave up one morning and opened the door to "let  in the day" a cock robin alighted  on the doorsill and looked pertly  within and about until, seeing  that I was on my feet he retreated as suddenly as he arrived ���  perhaps to spread the news that  the oldman was up.  The young birds of this year  are now of the full size for their  various species but can still be  identified because father and  mother are looking somewhat  frowsy at the moment; they are  changing their clothes ��� moulting ��� and doing it a feather at  a time so that the essential power of flight is not impaired.  That this necessary renewal of  plumage goes on just now when  there are no extra demands on  the parent birds, when food is  abundant, the temperature comfortably high and safe cover  easily found seems to me worth  more than the passing thought  that is set in motion by the finding of a wing-feather on the trail  ��� itself more marvellous the  more it is studied.  situated on the Richibucto River,  three miles south of the town of  Richibucto. Until 1901 the community was known as Kingston.  It was founded in 1825 and became a prosperous shipbuilding  and lumbering centre. When the  ferry downriver was replaced by  a bridge at Rexton, the main  road came through the community and the population further  increased. A cairn to the memory  of Bonar Law has been erected;  in Rexton.  What ships were built to be  torn apart?  In the first half of the 19th  century Europe and the West  Indies were hungry for the cheap  timber of North America. This  appetite inspired the most daring shipbuilding project in Canadian maritime history. In 1823  John and Charles Wood, shipbuilders at Port Glasgow, Scotland,' decided to evade the British timber tax by building huge  wooden ships in Quebec, sailing  them across the Atlantic, and  then breaking them up for timbers. The Columbus, first of the  lumber ships, was launched at  a specially assembled shipyard  four miles from Quebec City on  July 28, 1824, and rigged as a  four-masted barque. She was 301  feet long and registered at 3690  tons. She was not only the biggest ship of her day but, with  one exception, the largest vessel  built anywhere in the world for  the next 30 years. The Columbus  reached England safely. Then  construction began on the Baron  of Renfrew, an even bigger vessel ��� 304 feet long and 5880  tons. The Baron of Renfrew sailed in the summer of 1825 but  was wrecked in the English Channel through a pilot's error. John  and Charles Wood, her imaginative "builders, collected from the  loss an insurance payment that  was a record for the times.  *    *    *  Where is the world's most  northerly permanent settlement?  At Alert on the northern coast  of Ellesmere Island, in Caanda's  Arctic archipelago. The radio  and meteorological station at  Alert was established in 1950  and is operated jointly by Canada and the United States. Since  its etablishment the station has  been the most northerly permanent human habitation in the  world. Alert lies at almost 83 degrees north latitude.  ���X* r^ ^J_,  *J�� ���**(����� rj*��  Who won 45 of 46 murder trials?  Robert Andrew Bonnar of  Manitoba, one of the ablest criminal lawyers of his generation,  lost only one of 46 murder trials  in which he represented the defendant. Bonnar was born at  King, north of Toronto, in 1860,  the son of a Scottish schoolmaster who had come to Canada and  taken up farming. He was taught  at home, attended Barrie Academy for a time, and then studied  law in Winnipeg. In 1889 he was  called to the Manitoba bar and  in 1915 he was created a K.C.  Bonnar died at Headingly, Man.,  in 1932.  *    =P     *  Where was Bonar Law born?

VOTE FOR THE GOVERNMENT  \ warn Letters to the editor  Editor: Last spring the  school board removed +he  school bus from the Porpoise  Bay run, although the elementary pupil at the end of. the  run was 3.2 miles from the  school. Since this run was not  within the requirements set  .forth by the department of education, it was paid for entirely and out of the ratepayers pocket. By removing f.his  Eun the board saved the ratepayers money to the tune of  -approximately   $4.50  per  day.  At Pender Harbour, there is  a run referred to as the Oyster  Bay run, which transports the  high school children from the  Sigh school to the Oyster Bay  road,   a   distance   of   approximately two miles by road, but  a distance of little more than  at  mile   by  walking   across   a  field. This  is done to protect  ihe   children   against   the   inclement     weather     conditions  which exist in this? area in the  winter time.  As you   can see  Jrom    the    mileage    involved,  Shis   is  also   an   unauthorized  xun  paid  for  entirely  out   of  ���f&e ratepayer's   pocket.   When  I questioned a   trustee  about  this  run,   he   freely 'admitted  #iat it was an unauhorized run  Eut added that he would fight  to see that it was retained.  Through the efforts of the  Sechelt Rural- Wilson Creek  Ratepayers, both as a group  and as individuals, the board  at its last meeting agreed to  arun a taxi out to the end of the  Porpoise Bay road, although  at one board meeting in referring to a letter on transportation by this ratepayers group,  ihe chairman of the transportation committee said that she  ���felt it was none of the rate  payers' business* to tell the  school board how to spend  their transportation money.  This   year    there    are    five  Grade I children in this area,  there   is  one   girl  at  approximately 2Vz miles who is physically  handicapped. These students alone  total   seven.  It is  my  understanding that a  taxi  load    consists    of   six.    What  about  the   other   children   on  this route?   Does it seem  reasonable to pick up one girl of  a family and leave the other,  or to leave the boy next door  to   walk,   or   to  pick  up   the  Grade I pupils and leave  the  Grade II pupils to walk when  high school students are being  transported   on   an   unauthorized run   at Pender Harbour?,  Is this good public relations or  are   public   relations   between  the school board and ratepayers superfluous? Another point  this  taxi   will   cost  the  ratepayers   $3  per   day.   Is there  any    real   saving   here,    all  things  considered?  This would appear to be a  pretty muddled board policy  if one could suspect that any  overall policy exists at all.  Does this board not realize  that they as a whole are responsible for any decision good  or bad made as a result of representation by any individual  trustee They are equally guilty if they agree to a decision,  even though they lack adequate information, or even if  they have been misinformed  'by any individual member,,  whether through ignorance or  malice aforethought. It behooves, each, board member to  make certain that he is fully  informed upon any matter before    casting   his   vote,   since  4    Coast News, Sept.  1,  1960.  each board member, as part  of the group has to bear the  brunt of public opinion when  a wrong or unfair decision has  been   railroaded   through.  What is the matter with this  board?   Are   they   so  comfortably ensconed on Mount Olympus that they are incapable of  an error in  judgment, or  are  they so impressed   with  their  own importance that they are  unable    to   admit   they   have  made   a   mistake   (as   in    the  Grade IX at Sechelt   deal) or  are  they  completely   unaware  of   the   inequities   existing in  /this situation,  or is it merely  an example of muddle-headed,  scramble-brained   thinking?  You, the ratepayer, pay  your money and you take  your   choice.

Editor:    At   the   meeting   of  landowners   held   recently   at  the   Sechelt   School   activities  hall   in   connection  With  ths  proposed    water    system   for  West Sechelt,  it appears that  a   completely    wrong   impression has  been held  by   some  of the public of the intentions  cf   Mr.   T.  A. Seymour,   who,  when  the meeting   was asked  to elect its organizing committee, did nominate someone not  connected     with    the     small  group of landowners who 'had  been   doing the   initial   spade  work to  bring  the project  to  its present stage.  This was taken by some as  sligihting the members of the  above "small group."  To correct the impression it  should be known that Mr. Seymour was acting on the request of the members of this  same "small group" who felt  that this meeting should in no  way feel obligated to vote for  all or any of the members of  this group, and'that Mr. Seymour, in making his independent nomination would free  the meet^Jg from any restriction it might feel in that respect arid "give it a lead to appoint those it might consider  would better represent the  landowners.  We hope the above explan*  a tion will remove all doubt  as to the motives of one who  has from its inception been a  strong supporter of the project, and regrets only that his  business takes him away from  home so much that he is unable to take a more active  part  in the furtherance.

Winn met a school  chum he had not seen for 55  years. The chum was Frank  Smith who came from Otley,  Yorks where both he and Mr.  Winn wenf to school. Mrs.  Smith and Mrs. Winn also got  together tout they had not met  previously. Later the Winns  moved on to Squamish and  Garibaldi, guests of Mr. and  Mrs. Harry Clarke of Vancouver.  The recent forest closure  saw John (Jack) Walker Fisher  ot Selma Park, visiting Vancouver where he received his  membership into vthe "Turtle  Club."/ V  Jack, wearing his new hard  hat complete with turtle decal  and T.L.A. safety director,  Bob Whiskin, display membership certificate, while C. R.  "Rusty" Rustemeyer, safety  training co-ordinator of Canadian Forest Products Ltd.,  adjusts Turtle lapel pin.  The club, which now boasts  a world-wide membership, was  founded by Mr. Rustemeyer  and is sponsored toy Fleck Bros  Ltd. Today, the increasing  Turtle club membership, with  its slogan "Shell on head ���  We're not dead" proves beyond all doubt the value of  head protection and the hard  hat is the accepted trade mark  of a logger.

This area nas supplied only  26 percent of educational costs  he told the audience, pointing out that the department  ��� has supplied something like  74.12 percent of operating  costs. It was necessary in some  areas where the income level  was low for the government  to pick up the tab.  Mr. Steacy outlined how  some years ago he had canoed  through the area involved in  the Wenner-Gren scheme and  for many, many miles he saw  as few as half-adozen people.  As far as the Wenner-Gren  proposal went, it was just a  proposal. The right to investigate the northern area had  been granted but nothing  more. After the investigation  discoveries must be turned  over to the government and  if they want anything out of  those discoveries they must  apply for them the same as  anyone else. It was. not a project because nothing had been  signed.  When the railway was built  in the north freight going in  would first have to travel oyer  the PGE. Mr. Steacy commented on what opposition leaders  and the press were spreading  concerning the ,_ Wenner-Gren  and power proposals, maintaining they were "malarkey, eyewash and hooey and were just  belittling the idea." Nothing  had been given and no> concessions had been made, he added. If Wenner-Gren does not  build the railway ,'we will,"  he added.  On the Peace power proposals, no concessions or privileges of any kind had been  granted. The rates for eventual power would be set by the  Public Utilities Commission.  As regards , the Columbia river scheme he said some people were so far off base it was  disgusting. B. C. controls the  water so B. C. will build the  dam and receive return power  benefits from American sources in return. The Americans  must have water for irriga-.  tion so a deal may be completed shortly.  The home-owner grant was  described as being of great  benefit to old age pensioners.  '���We feel that it is your share  cf the natural resources of the  province. We are not satisfied  with it and want to increase  it. As revenues grow so we  will. It is one of the finest  things we have ever done."  Taxes in British Columbia, he  added were lower than in any  other part of Canada. Income  taxes were higher owing to  there being a higher income  level.  "More    things    were   being  done for you in British Columbia and the government is going to continue its policies of  the last eight years ��� not  promises but plans for the future ��� a continued program  of achievements," he said in  conclusion.  Few questions were asked  at the end of the speeches and  in answering one concerning  the highway to avoid Granthams bridge and hill Mr.  Bracewell hinted something  must be underway because  Hopkins water board had been  informed by the roads department the Hopkins water system  was in the path   but   it  Coast News, Sept. 1,  1960.    5  would be taken care of during  road construction.

WHAT MAKES TIRES  SQUEAL?  Have you ever wondered what  makes tires squeal? Here are  some answers by the B.C. Automobile Association:  Speed, generally believed to be  the sole cause, is one of many  contributing factors, which fall  into three main classes: Tread  design, construction and operating characteristics of tires. Car  front-end suspension and wheel  alignment. The condition of the  road itself.  The source of the squeal is  "side slip." When tires slip sideways over road surface, however  slight, the resulting noise is  similar to rubbing two inflated  balloons together.  Motorists can reduce tire squeal  by following these BCAA suggestions: Keep tires properly inflated, observing manufacturer's  recommended air pressure. Obviously, avoid taking corners fast.  ���Check car firont-end alignment  periodically. Rotate tires regularly, at least 3000 miles, including spare in rotation. Replace  worn or damaged tires.

Sargeant Bay was reported good but most fish were  ��� caught nearer home.  Guests of the Bill Thorns  this weekend were their daugh  ter and son-in-law, the John  Ruffells and son Danny, Mr.  and Mrs. Alf Preston. Charles  Thorn is back from his California holiday and reports the  Sunshine Coast has it all beat.  Another hostess was Mrs.  G. B. Simpson whose guest,  Mrs. B. Pitt returned to her  home in Vancouver on Sunday  Mr. P. Pitts ofHSanta Clara  visited the. Paddy Welshes for  a few days and Miss Penman  of Mount Currie is the guest of  the Charles Tinkleys.  *    *    *  Redroofs Salmon Derby  Aug. 20 and 21 saw adverse  weather on Aug. 21 which, bogged things down. H.igh seas  were running. A thunder storm  couldn't keep a few intrepid  fishermen from trying their  luck. .  There were a number of  prizes including the Stoker  Cup. Presentation of prizes  took place at 3:30 p.m. at Castaway, the home of the Sid  MacDonalds.  *JC        3f* 5JC  First prize went to Stuart  Lefeaux, who won a rod and  reel and the Stoker cup for the  largest fish. Prize for the most  salmon caught, 13, was awarded to Tommy Campbell; smallest salmon, Don Cunliffe; largest trout, Herbie Hunt and  longest total catch, Chris Dalton. Johnnie Simpson was in  ���charge of arrangements and  did an excellent job. Pictures  in color were taken of the  prize-winners and their catches to add to the collection already on hand.  Mr. and Mrs. Alan Greene  have as their guests Mrs.  Greene's parents, the John  Templetons of Hamilton, Ont.  Mr. and Mrs. Templet on have  spent three weeks with their  daughter and husband at their  home in North Vancouver.  They enjoyed meeting their  newest granddaughter Erin,  who will celebrate her first  birthday Sept. 10. They left  for Winnipeg on Aug. 24 to  spend a few days with friends  before entraining for home.  *     sfc     *  Mr. and Mrs. Frank Lyons  welcomed Mrs. Lyons*' son,  Fit. Lt. R. Laird, RCAF and  Mrs. Laird and their children  Susan, Carol and Richard jr.  F/L Laird is on leave from  duty with the DEW line north  of the Arctic circle. He finds  life there very interesting,  food and fishing is good and  the temperature most days this  summer has been 77 degrees.  He returns in a week's time  and will be home for Christmas  CHILD  PROOF  A child-proof medicine chest  is a necessity in any home. Enticing looking pills and colored  cough mixtures must be out of  reach of prying hands. If there  is no locked cabinet the top shelf  of the kitchen cupboard can safely take its place. Large cans,  such as those for powdered milk,  may hold bottles of medicine,  bandages and pills. Bright colored enamel paint may be used  for easy finding, and the contents listed on paper protected,  by pieces of plain polythene film.  The colore can be keyed ��� red  for poisons, yellow for pills and  green for bandages.  LTD.  A small braid rug can be slid  under a stove or refrigerator,  washer or dryer which is too  close to the floor to allow passage cf a mop. Lint and dust will  stick to the rug which can be  easily cleaned.  His one year term expires in  April, when he will have a  new posting.  The Johnnie Simpsons have  a house full, besides their own  family they have Mrs. Simpson's sister, Mrs. A. Brox and  family of Edmonton as guests.  Mrs. G. B. Simpson is enjoying a visit with an old friend,  Mrs. S. Pitt of Vancouver.  5j> ****5 rjv  Another busy hostess was  Mrs. W. Thomi whose guests  were her daughter and husband Mr. and Mrs. J. Ruffeli  and small son and Mr. and  Mrs. Nolan Lowe and family  of Vancouver. Charles Thorn  has returned from his trip to  Mexico and other points, re-,  porting a wonderful time visiting friends and seeing the  country.  Up for the weekend were  Mr. and Mrs. T. Campbell and  family, Dr. H. Caple, Stuart  Lefeaux, several members of  the Hunt clan, Chris Dalton  and R. MacPherson.  Dr. and Mrs. Ken Argue and  Richard are at their cottage  for the next two weeks.  Christopher and Robin Laird  are visiting their grandmother  Mrs. F. Lyons at Irishman's  Cove.  At the Redroofs Resort new  arrivals this week are Mr. and  Mrs. Goldberg of Vancouver.  "Ralph, this is what I call a vacation"  "OK, Betty, you were right. It was sheer  genius opening that Vacation Account at  the BNS. As you said, the year went by in  no time, and we didn't even miss the few  dollars every payday. Now, boy... it's  really nice to know we can live it up for a  couple of weeks without worrying about  where the money's coining from."  "Ralph, now I know why so many of bur.  friends save for their vacation with a Bank  of Nova Scotia Savings Account. It's easy  when you start a year or so ahead. And a  vacation without money worries is a real  vacation."

There was a great interest  with over 70 children registering for lessons and under the  competent instruction of Lynne  Bredin and her assistants rapid advances were made by all.  A tribute was paid by the  Red Cross examiner to the instructress and the way s^e  handled the classes with the  results of so many taking and  passing their exams. The weatherman co-operated and all  lessons went as scheduled five  days a week for six weeks.  Since so many children in  Pender Harbour live by the  water and travel to school by  ferry it is a necessity that they  be taught to swim and water  safety rules. This year the PTA  earned a lot of credit for coming in at the last minute and  making the lessons possible. It  is hoped that the public will  show its appreciation by supporting the PTA and thus insuring the possibility of such  lessons for another year.  The PTA swimming committee express their appreciation  to the many people who helped to make- these swimming  classes a success.

An insurance card for motorists, recognized across Canada as  proof of financial responsibility,  has been proposed by Canadian  Automobile Association to provincial authorities in the 10 provinces. At present, the four western provinces have a reciprocal  liability insurance scheme for  motorists.  Rowley J. Hastings, of Vancouver, president of the 600,000-  member CAA, said motorists  from provinces not covered by  agreements must carry separate  cards for each province they intend to visit that have reciprocal  liability insurance arrangements.

PR ACT ICE MODERATION TODAY  This advertisement is not published or displayed by the Liquor Control Board or by the Government of British Columbia. Hon. Eric Martin, minister of  health services and hospital insurance, announces that on Sept.  1, the B.C. Hospital Insurance  Service will commence a coverage for rehabilitation, chronic  treatment and convalescent care  in hospitals or sections of hospitals approved for that purpose.  He stated the Canadian Medical Association B.C. Division and  the faculty of medicine of the  University of British Columbia,  wilft give advice concerning the  requirements of such a program.  Coverage would be for patients  who no longer required intensive  diagnostic and treatment services  of an active treatment general  hospital and who are certified by  competent medical authority to  be likely to benefit from rehabil  itation treatments to the extent  that   they   may be returned to  their homes.  Mr. Martin called attention also to the Government's announced program of grants-in-aid to  non-profit societies for the construction of nursing home type  facilities for the care of the bedridden aged and infirm. A province-wide survey of nursing  home bed requirements was now  being completed, with the assistance of hospitals and doctors.  Mr. Martin emphasized that  the entire coverage program will  have to fit properly within the  scope of the federal - provincial  hospital insurance program.

Coverage limitations  will be subject to review from  time to time in the light of experience.  He said also that the provincial  government has repeatedly urged  municipalities and community  organizations to construct and  equip hospital units required  thtfougnout the province for the  full, development of the rehabilitation, chronic treatment, and  convalescent program, and had  given assurance that the provincial program of grants-in-aid of  50% of the approved construction cost and 33V&% of the cost  of depreciable equipment would  be provided for all necessary  projects.  In addition, there exists in B.C.  and elsewhere in Canada a shortage of the trained professional  personnel necessary to staff a  program of this nature. The representatives of the Medical Association and the faculty of medicine are planning the establishment of refresher courses and  training facilities to assist in  meeting this heed.  Necessary additional facilities  for the full rehabilitation,  chronic treatment and convalescent program will not be built  until there is the incentive of a  plan actively in operation. It has,  therefore, been decided to commence the program with such  facilities as are available. Coverage will be provided for such  patients as qualify on medical  grounds in the following facilities:  G. F. .Strong Rehabilitation  Centre, Vancouver; Gorge Road  Hospital, Victoria; Holy Family  Hospital Vancouver; Queen Alexandra Solarium and Poliomyelitis  Pavilion of the Pearson Hospital,  Vancouver.  In addition, coverage will be  provided in the Veterans' hospitals in Vancouver and Victoria  for civilian patients entitled to  treatment in those hospitals. It is  anticipated that, immediately  following the completion of the  new Lions Gate Hospital, North  Vancouver, the present North  Vancouver General Hospital will  be renovated to provide rehabilitation, chronic treatment, anj  convalescent facilities for the  people of Greater' Vancouver,  and that, as soon as the new  Nanaimo General Hospital is  built, the present hospital building will also be available for the  new program.  The development of the rehabilitation, chronic treatment, and  convalescent program will not  limit or change the B.C. Hospital  Insurance Service policy of providing, coverage in general hospitals for the period during  which it is shown by the attending physician that a patient requires in-patient care in an acute  general hospital, and could not  be adequately cared for in a nurs-  home or like institution.  Surprise party  given  visitors  Mr. and Mrs. H. Bovenius  were surprised at a farewell  the home of Mr. and Mrs. Len  Swanson, Gibsons, on the ev-  party held in their honor at  ening of Aug*   27.  Six months ago Mr. and  Mrs. Bovenius came to this  country from Holland to visit  Mrs. Swanson, their daughter,  and her family. During their  stay they have seen much of  British Columbia, and have  made many friends. They have  taken albums of snapshots to  speak for our province's scenery oh their return to Holland,  and have gathered many souvenirs of their journey.  The travellers had shown  special interest in local wood  carvings. Some of their newly made Canadian friends responded to this interest by  presenting as a farewell token  a finely carved figure and Indian head plaque.  Contributors to the gift  were Don and Marj David,  Ray and Evelyn Johnson, Ed  and Maudie Turner, Alec and  Bet King, Hank and Lisa Barendregt, Bill and Helen Weinhandl, Harold and Bea Swanson, Bruce and Lottie Campbell, George and Shirley Forsh-  man, and Les and Iva Peterson.

Staying  Aqua ducks  earn badges  Despite the chill of the evening and the seeming determination of the tide to create  the problem of dancing in the  dark, three sets of the Gibsons Squarenaders Dance club  took to the water to qualify  for  the  Aqua-Duck badge.  On the beach in front of the  Gibsons Boat Works flamete  from the bon fire leaped to  cast their light upon the water  and above the music and calls  of Harry Robertson could be  heard the squeals and groans  of the dancers as the slope of  the beach and movements of  the dance caused the water to  splash high.  Those wishing to qualify for  the Aqua-Duck, badge must  dance in ankle-deep water.  Club members eagerly awaiting the "pinning" ceremony  are Doris Solnik, Inez Hendrickson, Frank Girard, Pat  Macintosh, Art Holden, Jim  and Mary Wardrop, Doreen  Hough, Bill Morrison, Jack  Inglis and Violet  Winegarden.  While several sets were  lawn dancing and some of the  more hardy types were swim  mingy platters of hot dogs and  plenty of steaming coffee was  prepared.  With the singing of songs  both old and new, another  night of squaredance fun,  friendliness and fellowship  came to a close.  Inez and Walt Hendrickson  were thanked for their: hospitality and a vote of thanks  goes to the residents of the  Bay area who so patiently  bore all the "disturbing of the  peace." ��� V.W.
