Polio, or more properly poliomyelitis is a disease that attacks the central nervous system, paralysing nerve centers  particularly those controlling  the arms, legs and breathing.  In a .mild form, it may pass  unnoticed even by the patient; In a more virulent form  the victim may be partially or  totally paralysed for life, or  may die. In the severest, and  commonly fatal,, bulbar cases  speech and swallowing^, are affected as well as breathing;  Tp mid- November,     1954,  39,000 cases, of polio were reported    in    North      America  alone,' with Canada    reporting1  close tp 100 deaths.      In   the,  thousands of   paralytic    cases  the  victims will/ require long  and expensive    treatment    in  especially equipped rehabilitation   centers,  such    as    polio  money started in/ British Columbia.    Polio plays no favorites as regards race* religion,,  ��r creed. In the famous phrase  of the late Wendell Wilkie, as  far, as polio is concerned; "It's  on�� worldr' ;;/'  The1 'hospital care^ arid tijfe  therapy at the : fehabilitationi  centers requires' much, special  and ex^^fy^^ij^m^r^.'::;Ai-  ter leaving the   fe;l>]a^|i|tattpn  center many patients require  financial assistance towards  re-establishment. The people  of British Columbia provide  the money which the B.C. Polio Fund, uses, to carry on the  battle against polio.in all its  aspects. ���-���������������'.  BY MBS. M.

Bud is a student at':'-. Elphin-  stone "Junior Senior High  School. Here is his winning  essay:  The use of a lower grade of  wood and residue from the  manufacture of lumber and  plywood by the pulp and pa- '  per industry has increased  the value of our forests great-,  ly. .  A few generations ago, the  rejects of forest. industries  were left unused ' causing    a  serious waste of our natural  resources. In a matter of time  though, luriiberihg companies  found that they could use  wood more economically.  As a result of extensive research, the, pulp and paper  industry developed many uses  for the. residue pf these lumbering companies. As a good  .example, the town that I live  in, #ort ;M^llpn;?pfoduces.pulp  , front thP residue of' sawmills.  Instead pf/^the. excess raw, ma-"  ieii'aVb^in^ disposed %t-%* in-  cineratpfs it is %pfpcessed into  pulp, from which numerous  articles such as fabrics, pies-  tics, cartons, bags, film and  eeilulbse products are made.  Ra<te materials/used for these  afticl^ actually have a higb-  ef' value than those used for  lyttibef and/plywood.  r $>;^$i\i integrated f4>?"est industry ~ of today consists of   a  saw mill, plywood plant, pulp*  mill, and paper, mill. A converting plant could be included. In this way, the proper  kind of wood can be. used for  the different products,- thus  obtaining the greatest value  possible from the different  grades.  In conclusion, a careful use  of our lorests- raw materials  means a greater value in  store  for our Canada.  There are   1,089,206    young  Canadians enrolled in the Junior Red Cross.

The rapt attention, of the  all too meagre audience will  have to be the acclaim for  the strolling players who gave  such a sterling performance:  of Romeo and Juliet at the  Auditorium just recently. For  all of the scenery inadequacies  it might as well have not been  there for my part.  The transport * to Verona  circa 1450 A.D. was a nice  change for a couple of hours  and even the dipstick Shake-';  spearian, addicts of whom, I  am one must have been pleas-.:.  ed with a performance that  had so little to carp about.  This 500-year-old love story  looks like outlasting time itself. Its appeal, in comparison  to the ebb and flow of the  turgid and malodorous erotica  that is assailing our eyes and  ears nowadays, is as freshening as ,the first airs cf a summer dawn. I for one and I  think I can say the same for  most of us there, feel we are  indebted t0 these play actors  for, a very pleasant-, evening  and all for one ducat.  A full attendance of over  350 students from grades six  to 12 attended the afternoon  performance, some , haying  come from Madeira Park, to  join, the Elphmstone school  audience, and judging from  their hearty applause,enjoyed ���  the performance immensely.  Whether, they "appreciated  the ancient tragedy is somewhat doubtful, since they  howled with laughter at " the  portrayal of the final moments of the young lovers "in  tlie/tdmb of the Capulets, and  whistled with as much enthusiasm at the deaths as they  did at the comic sallies of  Sampson!

He was*too small  although his acting was per-  "fect. Benvolio's speeches  sounded memorized and he  did not have the poise of an  experienced  actor.  All in all the play was the  most outstanding ever shown  in Gibsons. It was a shame  more people did not take the  opportunity of seeing it.  School pupils were offered  a cash award for the best boy  and girl essay on the performance of Romeo and Juliet-and  here are the. winning essays:  BY MARILYN TURNER  Oh Thursday, January 6th,  in Elphinstone High School I  witnessed a performance of  Romeo and Juliet by the Lan-  caster Players. Romeo and Juliet accidentally fall in love  but are kept apart even after  their marriage by their feuding and unsuspecting parents.  The' story ends, with/ the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet.        . "V  The splendid acting was  hampered by the small stage  and�� faulty props. The balcony  could have been raised a few  feet to increase the idea of the  separation* of the lovers.  Derek Ralston was a    very  romantic Romeo    arid   played  his part competently.'    Rosfe-  marie    Meyerhoff    Was      the  charming, .delicate Juliet', that*  Shakespeare  pictured   in     his  story. Her soliloquy kept   the  audience's, interest: at. a    high1  pitch.;".

I  shall   write yxm \ my. criticism  . of the Lancaster production of  Romeo and Juliet.  On the whole it was commendable work, The director  kept the theme m mind: that  the feud was too bitter for  the lovers to overcome    hap-  ~ pily. Stage props were flimsy,  but magnificent lighting effects more than compensated  for this especially in the   bal-  ,. cony scenes and in the tomb.  In general, actor interpretation was praiseworthy,. lespeV  cially in the case of Juliet,  who gave a most' impressive  performance. The nurse gave  a laudable portrayal, even  though she was poorly supported by Peter. -  Best :-male interpretations  were given by Mercutio, who  displayed the wit, imagination  and mercurial energy his part  demanded;: :���Tybalt,vthe firebrand; /and.

Prior to the public meeting  Sunday, representatives frOm  community organizations and  leading citizens met with Col.  Johnstone, chairman of the  Hospital Committee for the  past year and Ian Woodburn,  administrator of St. Mary's  Hospital  at Pender Harbour.  Col. Johnstone opened the  discussion , by outlining the  improvement in the hospital's  financial positon, operating facilities and medical services  since he first headed the com.  mittee which took over the  hospital from the Columbia  Coast Mission when the institution was faced with closure because of financial difficulties. He then read a precis  of the Incorporationi act, constitution and* by-laws and asked for suggestions on the  form of membership of the  . proposed "St. Mary's Hospital  Society" which would take  over after its organization  Sunday.  It was decided, by unanimous vote of the meeting to  set the membership fee at $2  per year and that all those  joining at this time will be  the original incorporators of  this society. In closing the  meeting, the chairman, summed up the progress made by  the hospital during the past  year, pointing out that since  Dr. Alan Swan had joined Dr.  Playfair last month, there  were now two doctors in attendance, improved equipment  and increased staff which  had boosted, ^ther>op^tini? e?t^;  penses of the hospital. This  had been balanced by increasing occupancy however, the  chairman stated and the news,  of the hospital's improved facilities' was getting around  throughout the \ar_\e area it  served, from,Port Mellon to  Jervis Inlet, JLasqueti and Nel-:  son Islands plus the southern  hajlf of Texada Island ,; and  other outlying islands. Should  the hospital wish to just coast  along, revenues and expense  might soon be equal. "But,",  he said, "We propose Jiot 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."  Among those attending rep  resenting organizations were:  Mrs. Oliver Dubois, the PTA;  Jim. Cameron, Community  Club; Fred Clayton, Canadian  Legion, and Royal Murdoch,  Board Of Trade. Others- who  took part in the discussion  were Win. Scoular, John Daly  Peter Trappitt, Al Lloyd, Gordon Lyons, Oliver Bristow and  Dr. John Playfair. Before adjournment, everyone present  signed up and paid their fees  in  the new Hospital Society.  Register  for Plebiscite  In the coming plebiscite on  the sale of liquor in McKenzie  Riding unorganized territory,  voters will decide whether  they approve 0f the sale of  liquor in their territory, and  what kind of outlet they desire.. ���  The public house outlet, allows the sale of beer, ale and  stout by the' glass. The dining  room license allows for the  sale of beer, stout, ale and  wine or liquor with meals.  Lounges may sell liquor by  the glass, as cocktail bars, etc.  Voters not specifically in  the village of Gibsons may  vote in the coming plebiscite  as advertised, provided they  have assured themselves that  they are registered . to vote.  Should a plebiscite be desired  by the voters of Gibsons Village, it must be-requested specifically for the village, as at  Westview and Cranberry  Lake being an organized municipality.

As expressed by Commissioner W. Peterson, it has been a good and  progressive year for the Fire  Department and the village  therefore, in this way the  Commissioners wished to  thank the volunteers for services rendered.   ..  Chief Fred Feeney proposed a toast to the wives for  their co-operation in putting  up with inconveniences and'  also thanked the members for  their endeavours throughout  the past year. Special thanks  were given t0 Dick Fitchett  and i Jim Hicks who have recently moved out of the area  and who were instrumental  in assisting the Department in  its infant stages. y  Commissioner Peterson donated a personal cheque to the  Firemen tb open a bank account for a hew fire.; -truck.  He expressed the wish that  everyone in Gibsons and the  surrounding area should par-:  take actively in seeing that  this'. fund grows into the purchase price of a new truck to  replace the one so fondly put  together. Gibsons has and is  growing and in keeping witb  this it is necessary that first  class equipment is required  now to provide service to the  area. The old truck has nearly had it and it is only by  good management and lots of  luck that 'the firemen coax it  to a fire��� therefore a new  truck is. needed'-now!  Ways and means of acquire  .ing the needed approximately  $15,000 were discussed by Jim  ' Drummond, " J.    Bunyan,   -Dl,'  JFitchett, H. Davey,    Eric    In-  glis and Earl Bingley. Dr. H.  Inglis thankeci ;the First" ���Aid  Department for its work and  the  future     training    scheme  they are putting in effect.  Chief ' Feeney invited all  present to retire to the Fire-  hall for a first hand discussion  under more relaxing conditions in the Smoky Stove  Clubrcwam of. the Firehall.  Nearly all who were at the  dinner attended and " it was  an enjoyable aftermath to;  see all the.firemen so actively  discussing the various programmes for the coming  year.     .  The firemen take this opportunity to thank everyone" for  their donations, kind co-operation arid assistance oyer the  past years and trust they will, '  by co-operating the same way  ini the future, receive the benefits of reduced fire insurance  rates, personal protection and  area progress which are a result of this cause.  'f'BYCHUCK TOMPKINS.  1 The newly formed Gibsons  Boxing Club, gets underway  Thursday, Jan. 13. ^Anyone  wishing. to participate should  be at the Elphinstone Co-op by  5:30 p.m. t0 catch a ride to  Port Mellon where the workouts are being held.  Still in the boxing line,  Frank Santolas, the Port Mel.  Ion instructor, is planning on  a card of about seven fights  by the Gibsons Recreation  Commission and the benefits  would be used to further = the  Commission activities.  ;; The Gibsons Commercial  basketball team has finally  come up with;a--name. They  are calling-themselves the Orphans. Don't laugh yet. It is  very appropriate. No organiza-  wgrd as a sponsor and the  . boys have no league to r, play  in, so to me Orphans sounds  quite reasonable. By the way  they are turning into.a pretty  fair team, ,  Living so close to Vancouver has many advantages  from the sports point of view  as there are quite a- few pro���  fessional features worth' seeing on a Visit to the city.  Another player lias been  added to the Vancouver; Canuck's ;hockey club in the person of the fabulous; Wild Bill ,  , Ezinicki of former Toronto  Maple Leaf fame.
