Ph.   886-2116  ���  Gibsons,   B.C.  over  A telegram from Sechelt's  Board of Trade to the Public  Utilities Commission seeking a  hearing in Sechelt on the water  . rates issue has resulted in the  P. U. C. letter to the effect there  will be sufficient representation  from Sechelt at the hearing in  Victoria, therefore there .will be  no hearing in Sechelt.  The following telegram has  been sent to Victoria by the Sechelt Board of Trade:  Why? So the district can take the first step towards having a  modern hospital established at a central location.  What do we vote for? We vote for the formation of a Hospital  Improvement District. This does not mean the actual building of a  hospital  Do we need a hospital? Definitely! Garden Bay's St. Mary's Hospital has become too small for the population we now have. The situation will become more serious as the population increases.  Supposing the plebiscite for the Hospital Improvement District is  defeated, what then? It will mean considerable delay in the ultimate  construction of a hospital.  Where does a good part of our hospital taxation now go? It goes  to hospitals in other areas such as Vancouver where many patients  from this area are hospitalized.  Where you vote -  How will we benefit if we vote in favor of the plebiscite? Eventually we will have better medical facilities both inside and outside  Public Utilities Commission, the hospital. Doctors will have a greatly improved opportunity to  Central Building, Victoria, B. C. take care of their patients.  Re Sechelt Waterworks application. Due to the fact that practically all interested parties live  in this area and it is expected  considerable representation will  attend hearing. It is respectfully  requested that this hearing be  held in Sechelt saving the representatives the high travelling expenses. Sechelt Peninsula Board  of Trade, F. H. Norminton, president. \  This was the reply:  Dear Mr. Norminton:  With reference to your telegram please be advised that the  Commission has given careful  consideration to the location of  the hearing on the application of  Sechelt Waterworks Limited for  an increase in rates. It is not  necessary for all consumers to  attend,, provided there are adequate spokesmen for those inter-,  ested. Taking into consideration  the written complaints that have  been received the Commission is  of the opinion that there will  be adequate representation at  the hearing for those opposing  the application.  Taking all things into consideration the Commission  considers  that the place and date arranged for are the most satisfactory.  H. W.

Resumption of dental treatment for children of lower  grades was agreed to by board  members for next year but the  terms under which it would op-  crate will be set at the next  board meeting. A condition was  Urge park  at church  Suggestion that the present  United Church Property in Gibsons be utilized as a park was  made at Monday night's meeting of Gibsons and area Ratepayers association. There were  2C- persons present and (here was  no opposition to the  suggestion.  One angle brought up was the  possibility of the roads department building a third lane for  slow traffic around the church  corner and up the hill which  would mean the provincial highways department would purchase  the necessary land for the third  lane.  Such a lane it was felt would  not disturb the graves of the Gibson family because there would  included that a local group within the school area assume the  responsibility for collections.  When   school bands   were  discussed the board moved that instead of paying rent on the Elphinstone  High  Schooi  band instruments   the board   buy   them  outright at a cost of about $1,50(1  less the more than $200 rent already  paid on  the  instruments.  Expecting the board would be  requiring   the   Anglican   Parish  Kail as a classroom for possibly  the next two years, it was decided the board would spend   $744  for improvements on the hall on  the   understanding   it  would  be  available   whenever   ihe   board  needed it as a classroom. It is  now in use   for an   elementary  class and will be for some time.  A   progress  report  was  given  on Langdale school project then  the matter was tabled until the  next  board  meeting.  The basketball ruckus two  weeks ago during which a part  of the school closed off was entered turned out to be a brawl  between two basketball factions.  No actual damage was caused  but the disturbance was regarded as of the undesirable type.  The basketball teams involved  were not school teams. As a result of this ruckus there will b *���  a closer tab on the responsibility  of the individuals seeking the  use of school facilities.

She encouraged Helen on her  achievement and expressed the  hope that the set of reference  books in French , and English  would be of value not only this  year in senior matriculation but  in succeeding years in university. Mrs. W. B. Hodgson, secretary of the club, Mrs. W. Duncan and Mrs. W. Hutchins were  also  present  for the ceremony.  Drive safely  says Magistrate  Magistrate Andrew Johnston,  commenting on the tragic toll  of lives resulting from automobile accidents throughout Canada  during "Safe Driving Week"  said, "This should make every  driver cause to pause and reflect  if his or her driving is at all  times within the bounds of the  standard of  safe driving.  "While no loss of life was experienced on the Sechelt Peninsula, property damage ran high.

Vote for best men  Six men, three in Sechelt and three in Gibsons are seeking election to two seats on each village council.  In Sechelt, Sam Dawe, Louis Hansen and Frank Parker seek  election. All three have sat as councillors since the village was incorporated on Feb. 16, 1956. The decision which Sechelt voters must  make is which two to elect.  In Gibsons, Reg Adams, Sam Fladager and Albert H. Pay seek  the two vocant seats. Mr. Pay is seeking re-election. Mr. Adams has  sat previously on the council. Mr. Fladager is making his first effort  in local municipal affairs.  Election day in both villages will be Thursday, Dec. 8 from 8  a.m. to 8 p.m. which will give all voters plenty of time to get to the  polling booth, Legion hall in Sechelt and the Municipal Hall in Gibsons..  For whom to vote? In Sechelt Sam Dawe, sometimes called Mr.  Sechelt, is no slouch in public affairs. Frank Parker knows what municipal work means and so does Louis Hansen. In Gibsons, Mr. Adams  is acquainted with municipal affairs. Sam Fladager while a new face  "~j Hie municipal field, knows his way around. Mr. Pay, chairman of  : je roads  committee in Gibsons council deserves a plug.  He has  ".  Dried hard this year in his department.  So there you have it, six men with not too much to choose be-  *   Teen them, except personal selection. So remember the polls will  ��e open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Get out and vote.  We shall survive  Dilemmas raise their heads now and again and cause more than  the uplifting of eyebrows. One should hesitate to raise a dilemma in  ���world affairs now because plenty are lurking about.  However here goes! On the one side we have the terrible picture of civilization being wiped out by super-bombs. On the other  side we have the threat of "population explosion" which, like the locusts, would eat everything and eventually all would starve to death.  Now which side are you on ��� the bombers or the "population  expk>sion"? Both thoughts are kind of pessimistic and show signs of  a mental defeatism. If all the super-education available in the world  cannot eventually lick both of these problems, we deserve to be wiped  out and forgotten ��� and quickly.  Somewhere along the line somebody is going to suggest an action which will wipe out the universe. In the meantime we shall await  this important piece of information, in the hope that the super-bombs  or the population explosion have been sidetracked so the wiping out  of the universe will have precedence. Don't wait up for it though!  QUOTABLE QUOTES  Guard within yourself that treasure kindness. Know how to give  witfcoHi hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness. ��� George Sand  I wonder why it is that we are not all kinder to each other than  we are. Bow much the world needs it! How easily it is done!  ��� Henry Drummond  Xove is the fulfilling of the law: it is grace, mercy and justice.  ��� Mary Baker Eddy  Kind looks, kind words, kind acts, and warm handshakes ��� these  are secondary means of grace when men are in trouble and are fighting their unseen battles. ��� John Hall  Credit Unions expanding  Credit unions in Canada, a  potent force in the rural economy; continued to expand  throughout 1959, and reported a  memiership of 2,347,317, or 13.3  percent of the country's population.  This was a seven percent increase   over  the previous year,  Eccording to the report of Ver-  ��on   Heighten,   Canada   Department of  Agriculture  economist.  The trend  in  growth was toward   the  occupational   type  of  credit   union  which   formed   34  percent of the total in 1959 compared with 16  percent  in  1949.  Mural credit unions still dominate  the Atlantic provinces  and  also   the   province   of   Quebec,  which reported more than one-  half of the all-Canada membership.  Savings, which include shares  and deposits, increased 13 per  cent to $1,056 million, Quebec  accounting for about 90 percent  of total deposits and 61 percent  of total savings: The average assets on a,per niemher basis for  Canada totalled $492.  Credit unions granted $470  million in loans, 20 percent more  than in 1958. Assets also were  up by 145 million to $1,009 million.  Quebec credit unions reported  four times as much money in  mortgages (for homes) and four  times as much in investments  as the rest of Canada.  (Ey LES PETERSON)  ARTICLE 2  It was the Jurassic-Pliocene  upheavals which began to give  the Pacific coast its final shape,  and a succession cf ice-sheets  which completed the process.  Folds between mountain  ranges allowed water from the  o;ean to flow through the entire length of the former valley separating the then coastal  range from the next aeries of  mountains, creating what is  now called Vancouver Island.  River valleys along the coast  also submerged, forming arms  of salt water, among them  Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet.  What the topography looked  like prior to the ice ages we  can only surmise, but, from  such evidences of change as  are left to view from the effects of the last covering, we  can reckon that it was much  different from today. The Se-  .c'helt Peninsula was almost certainly an island, and so, likely,  was Dougall Point, at Gibsons.  +��* Nl�� *����  *V* 't* ?p  Two hundred million years  ago the area undoubtedly passed through the Carboniferous  Age, as did the remainder of  Canada, for thick beds of coal  "have been found as close at  hand as Nanaimo. Whether or  not the entire area was once  covered with carboniferous  forest, whether other coal-bed*?  formed and were later destroyed through upheaval and erosion, or whether conditions- for  the formation of coal did not  exist along the peninsula, we  cannot know.  In any case, all of the pre-  glacial soil must have been  pushed away during the ica  ages, and the beds of clay,  sand and gravel now found  here must have been deposited  by glaciers during the ice ages  and by water action subsequent to their retreat.  It is believed by geologists  that ice-sheets covered almost  the whole of Canada four times  during the past million years.  Until as late as 1955 it was  thought that the last of these  sheets melted approximately  25,000 yeans ago.  *    *    *  Very    recent    carbon    tests,  however,   made   in the  lower  Fraser valley, have shown that  the   last ice-sheet   did not depart until much more recently  than that, or about 6,000 years  ���ago.   Strangely    enough,    this  last   figure    was   guessed    at  many years ago by L. S. Jack;-  >son,   a  logging   operator   who  deducted it from  remnants of  atumps he found on his holdings near the  western  end of  Mt.   Elphinstone.   Since   they  were located at an altitude at;  which decay was very slow, he.  believed that they represented  the original   growth following  the retreat of the ice, and placed the time of their beginnings  at  the  date now   conclusively  set at 6,000 years ago.  During the thousands of  years through which this period  of comparative cold endured  in the northern hemisphere, ice  accumulated slowly until in  places it reached a thickness  of 1,000 feet. The last large  remnant of this age is the ice- -  cap of Greenland, which still  retains a depth of 1,000 feet.  Just as the central surface of  Greenland today is still under  sea-level, so here during the.  ice age lands were depressed iri  proportion to the weight of ice  endured.  Prepared by the Research Staff of  tHCKiOPEPIA   CAM01ANA  When did ihe 49th parallel  become the boundary?  In 1818. When the Treaty of  Paris was signed in 1783 between Britain and the newly  formed United States, the  boundary between the States  and the British North American possessions, was fixed  through the Great Lakes as at  present and on to Rainy Lake  and the Lake of, the Woods.  From the northwest point of  the Lake of the Woods it was  to proceed "on a due west  course to the River Mississippi." Later, of course, it was  discovered that a line drawn  due west from the northwest  point of the Lake of the Woods  ��� did not touch the Mississippi  River, wihich rose farther  south. This difficulty was resolved In 1818 when by common agreement it was decided  that the line should be drawn  along the 49th parallel of latitude from the Lake of the  Woods to the Rocky Mountains.  As the edges of this huge  mass of ice squeezed outwards,  they acted as huge graders,  planing off projecting peaks  and filling in, or further goug-.  ing out, declivities. The Strait  of Georgia became a great sea  of ice, 'hemmed in between the  Island and Coast ranges. Animal life must have retreated  southward before the gathering  snow and ice, and man likewise, if he had existed here  at that time. Vegetation must  surely have been covered,  crushed, and ground into pulp  by the slowly moving ice.  ��**     ��i^     k?,.  -v.     *v     t.  As the atmosphere warmed  again, the ice-cake between the  Island and Coast ranges became a great ice-rimmed pool  of fresh water, referred to now  as Georgia Lake. Gradually an  opening formed through the  gap of Juan de Fuca .Strait,  permitting salt water to flow  back into 'the inland waterway.  At the same time, tongues of  ice scoured the channels of  Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet,  pushing their till out into the  Strait. The result of this action  is that parts of Jervis Inlet are  one hundred fathoms deeper  than the deepest spots in the  Strait of Georgia.  In west Howe Sound it is almost certain that the bar between Dougall Point and Keats  Island was formed by one  tongue of a glacier being stopped by the narrow passage and  dropping its terminal moraine  there. This same glacial action  must also have pushed up the  gravelly deposit between Dougall Point and Gospel Rock,  now referred to as the Headlands.  A good example of glacial  action is to be found in the old  department of public works  gravel pit south of the Sechelt  Suits tailored  hi your measnre  PROMPT DELIVERY  GUARANTEED TO FIT  Marine Men's Wear  Ltd.  Ph.  Gibsons 886-2116  Highway between the Pratt  and Cannery (Henry) Roads.  There a low dome of granite  forced the ice-sheet to lift as  it passed by toward the sea.  Against the northern half of  the dome there was thus forced a ramp of gravel, which has:  now 'been mostly dug away to  the present road level, exposing the bare rock. The southern  nlope of the dome is littered,  as would be expected, with a  conglomeration of boulders,  dropped there by the uplifted  blade of ice.  A similar phenomenon seems  to have occurred south of Dakota Creek on the Port Mellon Road. Here the great mass  of boulders, loosely interspersed with coarse gravel and dirt,  cannot be considered as ordinary talus, the result of weathering alone, but must have been  dropped there by the uplift of  some ice-sheet moving down or  along the mountainside.  *    *    *  Thirty years ago, before vegetation had covered it, the  line of boulders which cross  the Sechelt Highway immediately west of the Girl Guide  Camp near Wilson Creek was  the^most spectacular evidence  of Bygone glacial action. It is  a perfect example of lateral  moraine, running up the side  of Mt. Elphinstone in a straight  line. Since some of the boulders at its upper end are 60  feet and more high, it is possible that White Island, which  is in line with it, was pushed  into the Strait of Georgia by  the same sheet.

Parents sometimes forget  that one lesson is that waiting  is sometimes unavoidable.  T.ie child who whines that  he can't wait and pleads to  'open just one present" is very  unpleasant company. He should  be given a time of isolation by  himself in his own room until  he can act in a more sociable  way.  If his parents give in to his  wheedling, they are doing him  no kindness. He misses soma  of the very special joy of  Christmas morning which, is  every youngster's heritage.  Part of the price of the big  occasions in life is being patient for the special day to arrive.  ��X* 1* *V  In adolescent life the boy  who cannot wait to have his  own money in his pocket, stops  school as soon as he is sixteen,  and gets Whatever job he can.  The responsible positions with  opportunities for service and  increasing salaries go to the  men who have waited for full  time employment, until their  education was  completed.  Parents fail their children if  they do not show in their actions and teach that true happiness comes to those who  have learned to wait, to work  and discipline themselves to  attain worthwhile goals. Nature has made the sex urga  strong and insistent, but marriage is worth waiting for.  *     *    *  One of the marks of maturity  is the ability to wait. Some  people never learn it. But it is  a lesson which should be learned in early childhood. In a  home where an orderly routine  is followed it is easier for a  child to learn this art. It he  has learned to stand the brief  discomfort of being hungry  while he waits for dinner to be  put on the table, he is discovering that, unpleasant as it is ���  if necessary, he CAN wait!  rie  Maldwyn Thomas, who was  born in Gibsons and received  his elementry and high school  education here, recently flew  from Stockholm to visit his  parents, now residing on Salt  Spring IslanaT  It was a brief visit as he was  due in Ottawa for the trade  conference there.

Davis St., Vancouver.  Editor: The writers feel sure  that many of you will recall  that three Christmases ago before the deluge of locally sent  and .received.Christmas cards  decorated the mantlepiece for  a short time before tneir inevitable fiery end, a small group  agrled to send a donation  (equal to the dozens and dozens  of cards we send to friends and  acquaintances we came m contact with frequently) to the  City Central Mission in Vancouver. ,,  This was done rafener than  sending Christmas cards; locally so that some less fortunate  may better enjoy his or her  SJistmas and possibly appreciate that Christ did not die in  vain   after all. ,  This small group has been  growing each passing year so  +hi��! letter is directed to any  and all wL wish to contribute  fn this manner to ensure that  more and more, people will  XaTe a happier and brighter  Sistmas  as it was .intended  Those wishing to 30m with  ������� olease contact Mrs. F.

Editor: With reference to rv  cent pamphlet issued to home  owners relative 'to a new hospi-  taL The pamphlet states that  the population has increased one  Sid three quarter times to an  estimated 9300, in the las dec  ade These figures are not in ac  cordance with the facts as only  four years ago when the Dominion Census, was taken, in 1956 the  population figures from Hopkins  Landing to Earl's Cove mc udmg  Egmont and the Indian Reseives  totalled 5298. ,. _  These figures can be confirmed by anyone who cares to write  to the Dominion Bureau of statistics,  Census Division, Ottawa,  ��nt' DIOGENES  Editor's note: While the above  figure is correct as far as it goes  the area in which a Hospital  Improvement district would operate includes neighboring islands within the hospital district  territory. The 1956 figure for the  area outlined by Diogenes has  increased since 1956 and an estimate from the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, which keeps  census tabulations, would show  such increase. Provincial authorities have not raised any doubts  about population figures in the  committee's brief.  Pedestrians - - - please protect yourself on highway  Editor: Recently I read in the  Coast News that the Gibsons  merchants have finally got together on a uniform closing day  during the week.  This will be good news in  particular to summer campers  like myself on Keats Island  who do most of their shopping  in Gibsons. In the past it has  been confusing, to say the least,  and an inconvenience to run  over to Gibsons in one's boat  only to find it the wrong day  for food stere shopping.  I would suggest that next  spring and summer the local  merchants would do well to  have" you print up a dodger for  distribution on Keats Island  (and particularly Eastbourne  side) outlining the open and  closed days for their stores..  L. C. WAY.  LITERARY   ECONOMICS  "Gresham's Law" in economics states that bad money tends  to .'drive out good. There is so  inuch bad literature on Canadian  book stands that it. seems to be  driving out good literature.' It  seems to us that it is hot so  much a matter of censorship in  the ordinary sense but a question of public opinion. A few  thousand indignant, parents could  make short shrift of the unscrupulous novelists who .write anything for money. And by the  same token, these parents could  do much to convince their children of the greatness of the masters of English literature of the  past. ��� Health News Service  SMALLEST INSECT  Every year new species of insects   are   discovered  by  scientists.

A NETWORK OF OFFICES ACROSS CANADA AND ABROAD  Canada's annual Safe Driving  Week, Dec. 1 to 7, which attacks  the apathy of motorist and pedestrian, serves as a natural  lead-in to the country-wide drive  against Holiday Hazards  This campaign, designed to  stress the need for care and attention while driving and walking in the holiday season, has  been conducted for many years  by federal, provincial and municipal police forces from coast  to coast.  Holiday hazards activity continues through December. The  police have the active support  of safety organizations ' across  Canada in alerting motorists  and pedestrians to traffic dangers peculiar to and enlarged by  the spirit and excitement of  Christmas and New Year's. A  special effort is made to control the drinking driver whose  elation at holiday time is expanded by his consumption of spirits  to a point where he can become  a serious menace to life and  limb.  The responsibility of the pedestrian to prevent traffic accidents  is just as great as the responsi  bility of the motorist.  "The pedestrian has his  rights," the council aamits, but  adds, "he also has his responsibilities." It is pointed out that  an erring pedestrian who antagonizes and upsets motoring traffic could create an accident on  the spot or blocks away. The  driver, angered by the walker,  could become confused or heed  less and cause injury or death  a half hour later, as he drives  on.  The council pleads wiin people  who walk in traffic to forget  their "rights" and do everything  possible to allow motor traffic  to flow smoothly and safely. A  pedestrian who "stands on his  rights" can not only be a menace but a fatality.  Appliations are invited for the position of part-time stenographer at the office of the Supervisor of Elementary Grades and  at the Gibsons Landing Elementary School.  Apply to the undersigned on or before December Kith giving  particulars regarding qualifications and experience. Duties  will commence when school re-opens after the Christmas vacation.  Further particulars regarding hours of work, duties, etc. may  be obtained on application to the School Board Office.

It is important that you understand that,  1. The plebiscite is to be held to obtain the landowners' approval of the formation of a Hospital Improvement District. It is not a money by-law.  2. Formation of the Improvement District (which is similar to a School District)  makes it possible for a community to raise its share of the money required to finance  the construction of a hospital at a later date.

One theory is that  the other animals laughed themselves to death at the sight of him.  But man had the last laugh���by  putting nature's energy to work  he became earth's most powerful  creature.  In Canada our most important  energy source is petroleum. The  reason���oil is made' available  wherever it is needed, the price is  right, arid product quality has been  constantly improved. Gasoline  octane, for example, is ten points  higher now than it was ten years  ago���while in the same period  the amount Imperial receives for a  gallon of gasoline has gone dovm.  IMPERIAL OIL,  When, without a moment's  warning, a savage January gale  shattered a collection of frame  buildings being towed through  Broughton Strait thirty-five  years ago, the hopes of hundreds of men and women living in scattered settlements  along the upper portion of the  Sechelt Peninsula and on the  coasts and islands in and  around Jervis Inlet, appeared  just as shattered as their long  awaited "floating hospital."  But, even while parts of the  wreckage of the ill-fated project were still being cast up  by the sea, a man who will  never be forgotten by those  who made the British Columbia Coast their home during  his service, brought hope of a  new and better hospital. The  Rev. John Antle, Superintendent of the Columbia Coast  Mission, and skipper of the  Missions Hosipital ship "Columbia"  promised   the people the  RobertsCreek  (By Mrs. M. Newman)  Miss Wilma Deane spent a few  days in Vancouver, guest of her  aunt, Mrs. M. Leak. She was  joined by her mother, Mrs. D.  Deane, who had flown down from  Masset to visit her parents at  Courtenay.  Mr. F. McTavish visited in  Vancouver during  the week.  Pupils of the Roberts Creek  Elementary School, with a little assistance, are getting out a  weekly school paper. This cheery  assortment of colored pages  lacks only an advice to the lovelorn column. There are riddles,  jokes, stories, art work and even  a Cholly Knickerbocker lurking  in its pages.  Something added is a class in  woodworking for the boys under  direction of Mr. McColl. All is  very secretive in this department  as it has to do with Christmas  presents for Pop.  Mrs. Rae Kolterman was guest,  of honor at a Bon Voyage tea on  Wednesday when Mrs. Doris  Drummond entertained OES  members. Mrs. Kolterman, a  past matron of the order left immediately after for Vancouver  where she spent a day or two  before flying to Winnipeg.  Guests present were Mrs. Kolterman, Mrs. M. Joss, Mrs. A.  S Trueman, Mrs. I. Coleridge,  Mrs. S. Wakefield, Mrs. S. Gardiner, Mrs. R. Eades, Mrs. R.  Telford, Mrs. H. Metcalfe, Mrs.  H. Lau, Mrs. J. T. Newman and  Mrs.  C. Brookman.  Mrs. K. Pearson, Mis.

Help came from all sides.  Two men, both engineers and  members of St. Mary's Church  in Vancouver's Kerrisdale,  came fo build a miniature hydro electric plant with 100-  foot head of power obtained  from Garden Bay Lake just  albove the hospital site. Because of the generously given  help of these two and other  members of St. Mary's Church,  the Hospital was named St.  Mary's.  Opening day was a great occasion. The Princess Patricia  steamed in to the harbor that  Saturday afternoon of August  16th, 1930 carrying the official  party from Vancouver. After  a dedication sevice conducted  by~ Archdeacon Heathcote, the  hospital was officially opened  by Lieutenant - Governor R.  Randolph Bruce. In the midst  of all these formalities, a small  boy sidled up to one of the  officials in the crowd of spectators, handed him a crumpled  dollar bill and said "I earned  this catching fish for bait.  Please can I give it to the hospital." Today, a quarter-century later, on the lengthy and  honored roll of those who gave  to the limits of their ability to  build the hospital, the name of  that small boy with the big  heart still stands ��� "Andy,  Simpson, $1.00.

Canon Alaiv  D.Greene. Six years later  when Rev. John Antle retired  after completing 31 years as  founder and director of the Co^  lumibia Coast Mission, Canon?  Greene succeeded him to carry  on to the pre-sent day the magnificent siervice so freely given  to all men equally, irrespective of creed or nationality.

One man gave land for the site,  others closed their machine  shops or tied up their boats to  start falling the trees, blasting  the rocks and stumps. In an  amazingly short time the foundation was ready and the building took form and meaning on  its beautiful hillside location  overlooking a salt-water lagoon, the harbor and strait at  Garden Bay.  During  the  years  when the  Columbia   Coast   Mission   carried the heavy financial burden  of the hospital's operation, the  area   it  served  was   increasing  in population and demand for  more and more medical facilities. " As    tne    passing    years  brought new developments the  mission's      directors     decided  that the time had arrived when  the    people    themselves    were  ready  and  able   to   take  over  the   responsibility  of   supporting   their  own   hospital.   And.  on February 1st, 1953, the move  wais    made   definite   with  the  formation of   a   Hospital   committee    composed    of    leading  residents    in    the    community  under the chairmanship of Lt-  Col. E.  S.  Johnstone. M.C.  Since that date the Hospital  has gone steadily forward with  a sound, step by step expansion of its services and facilities.  Every person present subscribed $2 to a membership in  the new permanent group, St.  Mary's Hospital Society, which  they formed that day, to be incorporated under the B.C. Societies Act, and to be responsible for the operation of the  Hospital in the* future. The  chairman and his committee  were re-elected to the new organization and representative  members were added from  time to time.  On Jan. 9, 1955, starting the  year of St. Mary's Silver Anniversary, over 100 representative men and women of the  area served by the Hospital  gathered at a public meeting  in the Pender Harbour Community Hall to express their  unanimous confidence in the  Hospital Committee whi:h had  operated the institution for the  past two years.  AtN this meeting, in pointing  out that "if the" hospital just  wishes to coast along, revenues  and expenses might soon be  equal," the chairman gave perhaps the best guide to the future when he said���"But we  propose not to coast, but to  ever work for the betterment  of the medical facilities for the  people of the wide area St.  Mary's is now serving."  New equipment was already  on order ��� an electro cardiograph machine to assist in the  detection of abnormalities of  the heart���improved anesthetic  equipment ��� more modern instruments. Ambitious plans;  were also made for expanded  accomrnocTatTon, more effective  nursing treatment, and so on  These improvements, of course,  meant constantly increasing ex-  penditure  and  the   outlay for'  Savings!!
