As a result the fair board is  'expecting a larger number of  entries from outside Gibsons.  Representatives of the Fair  Board at outside points are:  Mr. N. Watson at Seehelt, Mr.  and Mrs. Little at Wilson  Creek, Mr. William Gilbert at  Roberts Creek and Mr. N.  Marleau at Port  Mellon.  An.y person at or near these  points desiring further information on this yeai's Howe  Sound fair should contact the  individual living nearest to  them or write or see Mrs. M.  LeFeuvre, the secretary of  the board in Gibsons.  "For entries in the Vegetable Division a great deal depends on the weather particularly for the heat loving vegetables like corn, tomatoes,  marrow, etc.," Mrs. LeFeuvre  reports. "We estimate -this  year a slight increase in nearly all sections, perhaps better  in the needlework since the  group entry in # that division  came into vogue this year for  the first time.  "There may be a marine exhibit (shells and sea life) and  a few Peninsula pictures. We  have received prorn'ses for a  few commercial exhibits including Port Mellon on a project. The 4-H Poultry- Club expects to show its birds. The  Jr. Garden Club aims to exhibit its produce and the four  members of the Junior Calf  Club are also exoacted to exhibit."  MLA Tony Gargrave, shown above with Grace McLaren, %  at 29 the youngest member of the B.C. Legislature,-is back at  university to 3earn his economics. The CCF member for Mackenzie said he is taking a UBC summer course in economics be>  cause he feels that everybody in government should have &  workirfg knowledge of the forces that control prices, wages*  money and credit. , ...-������  As everybody knows, he said, our economy has its upss  and downs. These business cycles affect every one of us whether  we are businessman or worker. Inflation can destroy our savings if we allow it to get away from us. Deflation can cause  industrial setbacks, unemployment and low wages. "These are  pretty important things. We must not allow the old forces o��  supply and demand to control us; we must control them, for  the public good," he said. ���      .    .        .  The MacKenzie MLA said that his course, which will  give him credits toward a university degree^ is devoted to  understanding all economic theories.  rou  High gusty winds and ' tide  conditions in Georgia Straits  played havoc with log booms  being towed    towards    Gower  'Point from up coast Saturday.  - At one' 'time7 that'X day^ seven  tugs with their cumbersome  tows were in trouble: in the  rising storm.        .  Two booms had almost  reached the safety of Howe  Sound, when they were forced  back, and one was broken up.  Five others were held in the  bay between Gower and Byng  Points. They were blown to  shore, in spite of extra tugs  called out to help.  One boom lost about one -  quarter of its logs while tugs  pulled and pushed trying to  keep it on course. Those  booms which partially grounded fared better, and when the  sea flattened out and the tide  rose in the late afternoon, they  were successfully towed into  the Sound.

CUB PACKS'  BEAN FEED  Gibsons 1st and 2nd Cub  Packs had a grand time at the  Bean Feed held at R. Kruse's  home at Grantham's Landing;  last Wednesday. They enjoyed,  a swim, land and water games,  and did full justice to the  supper supplied by the Cub  mothers   and  friends.  In charge of the Bean Feed  were the various Cub leaders  Mr. Fulton, Rae Kruse, Barry-  Wood, John and Carmen Robinson. ���  The Cubs voted special  thanks to the ladies.  The next Cub activity is a  hike, to take place Sunday,  July 31-, to a surprise destination, for which the Cubs will  meet at the Gibsons Post Office at 8 a.m. They will carry  their own lunch and equipment for this hike.

Lastf? week's copy of the B.C. News Letter published  in Vancouver, a brightly written summary of general conditions in British Columbia, contained the following information in the first five items:  1. Lumbermen get a five cents an hour increase now  and a further five cents an hour increase ^a year from now.  Also fringe benefits.  2. Canning companies and fishermen have set an increase over a two year period on salmon ranging from nine  to 15 percent.  3. Carpenters in B.C. to get three-cents-an-hour  wage increase starting April 1, 1956. Also a two week holiday with pay.  4. Smelter workers effective June 1 to get five cents  across the board pay increase* with other' benefits.  5. In the pulp and paper industry a two year agreement features a five percent increase effective July 1 plus  five cents an hour starting July 1, 1956.  While The Coast News has no desire to discuss the  rights and wrongs of these pay increases it would like to  point out one angle. It is ithis: In the months to come these  self-same .unions will more than likely be passing resolutions condemning the high cost of living. Pay increases add  to costs and the consumer has to pay. Union men somehow  fail to regard' themselves as consumers when bargaining  for pay increases.  VISITING TROUBADORS  Local organizations, such as service clubs, branches  of the PTA, VON, and others, have been concerned over the  invasion of the territory by dance bands; stage groups and  others, who play one-night stands on the Peninsula, and  depart, their exchequers enriched but Peninsula coffers for  charity and other purposes no further ahead except for the  actual rental of the building in which these entertainers  perform.  Frequently dates on wrvch invading groups rent a  hall conflict with i1he dates of some local affair, put on to  raise funds for a local cause. Naturally, in this as in other  fields, customers flock to the out-of-town fare. It is a case  of far pastures seeming greener. ������   .  .  Could a program be instituted calling for a stated'  percentage of admission fees'to be,donated to some local  charity, to be named and paid before they left? This percentage need not be so large as to discourage the entertainers from coming, but should be large enough to be of material assistance to the local group named.  It might' be instructive to hear from local Hall  Boards on this subject, particularly since the new season  of dance band invasions will soon be here. Local groups of  entertainers might express, their opinions of what ;the results might be, and what percentages might be considered  fair to expect.  The Coast News will give publicity to any; opinions  offered.  Automobiles heavy  producers of taxes  and materials. Another 55,000  work for motor car dealers.  The industry produced a record 58,131 passenger cars,and  trucks in May, topping the April total of 54,087 and the previous all-time high of 52,365,  in April 1953. May output included 41,087 passenger cars  and 10,-619 trucks for the Canadian market and 4,132 cars  and  1,585 trucks for  export.  Total production of 224,697  cars and trucks in the first five  months of 1955, notwithstanding the fact one major company! was virtually out of production for the first two  months because of a labor dispute, still outstripped the 216,-  109 vehicles built in the .first  five months of 1954. However,  it. was behind the record 234,-  290 cars and trucks produced  in the first five months of  1953.  . Canadian government tax  collectors had their richest  take in history from the automobile business in May, garnering $21,679,930 from sales  and excise taxes on vehicles.  The highest previous month  was May 1853, with $19,053,-  050.  Notwithstanding a reduction  of the, excise tax on passenger  cars from 15 to 10 percent in  the 1955 federal budget, the  government's revenue from  this source in May was $9,528,-  318, only slightly below the  record of $9,670,652 set in  May, 1954. Sales tax on cars  and trucks produced a further  $12,151,612 in May, 1955, far  above the former record of  $9,524,971 in May,  1953.  Canadian automobile manufacturers in May, 1955, employed more people, turned  out more vehicles, and yielded  more tax revenue to the federal government, than in any  other month since the industry was started 52 years ago.  According t0 the Canadian  Automobile Chamber of Commerce, the eight motor vehicle  manufacturers in Canada had  42,907 persons on their . payrolls in May, earning a total  of $15,500,212 in wages and  salaries. May employment was  up from 42,552 in April and  41,467 in March, and was far  ahead of the previous record  of 40,586 set in February 1954.  In addition to employment in  the automobile factories, an  estimated 150,000 Canadians  get their pay cheques from  firms    supplying     components  AUTO PRICES HIGHER  The average retail price of  new motor vehicles rose again  last year. Passenger cars, averaged $2,586, some $73 more  than in 1953. and $975.. moire  than in 1946, while commercial vehicles averaged $2,663  up $121 over 1953 and $937  over 1946.  FEWER EUROPEAN   CARS  Canadian sales of new European motor vehicles reached a  peak of 62,880 passenger cars  and 4,626 commercial vehicles  in 1950, but since then have  steadily declined. Last year  20,248 passenger cars and  1,610 commercial vehicles  were sold.  eep cool  So efficient are the human  body's cooling units ��� a system of; sweat glands, a network of blood vessels and a  layeo of insulating fat ��� that  a man can survive in an oven  that would cook a steak placed  beside him. So states an article in the August Reader's Digest.  Few of us expect t0 enter  ovens but all of us can help  beat the summer heat by heeding, six rules offered in the  Digest article. ���_..'.  1. Drink plenty of liquids.  Don't rely on thirst as a guide  for it sometimes lags behind  the actual heed.  2. Increase -salt , intake  slightly to replace salt lost  sweating."  = 3. Relax. Muscular activity^  is a primary producer of*  heat.  4. Use fans, but don't sleep  with a fan aimed directly at  your body.  5: Keep your child's -��� head  moist with a wet handkerchief  in very hot weather. The  sweat-gland capacity of babies  and small children is limited;  therefore they are more vulnerable to heat exhaustion.  6. Avoid too much exposure  to the sun at one time; it can  lead to sunstroke.  Humidity is much more exhausting than heat, says the  Digest. Student volunteers  performed heavy labor for  six hours in dry air, at 122 de.  F., but in humid air the same  work quickly exhausted them  if the mercury rose above 90  degrees. -  Man's ability to withstand  extreme heat is often amazing.  A research project volunteer  stayed for 26 .minutes' in 240  deg.' heat. The Digest article  points out that a club steak in  an oven at 240 deg. will be  ready to eat in 26 minutes.,!?  CALLER    HERRIN'  BY L.S.J.  It started with a peremptory  phone call with some reflections on my ancestry and the  fact some Point Grey herring  were at the dock and if I  wanted any I had better get  down, there. It was coincidental that I had just been reading about water and current  changes in the English Channel and the effect ori the mackerel and herring fishing ' in  those parts. '���'.,-���'  Hearing from Dave like  that brought about a bit of  day dreaming and of days  long past where bloaters, kip-  pel's, whelks, and winkles,  were all mixed up with a  book review of a criminal  teenager in one magazine section of the city paper. Dave is  74 now and is about the same  consistency as a piece "of oak  and he was brought up on  "salt herrin' arid boiled taties"  with oatmeal brose as a starter. Dave found out about fish  and fishing the hard way in a  North Sea drifter at the age  of 14- and there is no tougher  sea or trade    school    in    the  world than  that one.  ���      *      *  What I am trying to get at  is the men we had, and the  men, and this goes for the  women too, we are going to  have in the future. Dave has  been an, asset to this country  since his arrival; come good  times or bad he wanted no  truck with doles and such like  LETTERS  to editor  *���  Teacher  trainM^  '55 unchanged  During the past year'the reorganization of teacher' rtrain-  irig has been under study by a  committee of the department  of education and the Univer-.  sity of British Columbia with  a view to improving the program of teacher-education academically and professionally.  At the recent session of the  provincial legislature, steps  were taken through amendments to the University Act,  the Public Schools Act and the  Victoria College Act to bring  about a re-organided system  of teacher training beginning  September 1956.  For the year beginning Sepr  tember 1955 there will be no  change in the present system  of training elementary teachers in the Vancouver and Victoria Normal schools or of secondary teachers at the School  of Education at the University  of British Columbia. This will'  be the last year of co-operation  for these teacher-training institutions.  Beginning in September of  1956 all teacher-training will  be given by a new College of  Education of the University of  British Columbia. Victoria  College will offer training for  elementary, teachers similar in  curriculum to that given at the  College of Education in Vancouver. All teacher-training  will carry degree credit.  ' Editor: Through your paper  I would personally like to  thank Mr.-Pilling and his crew  of men, for the excellent job  they have done on Beach Ave.,  Roberts Creek and. also for  the courteous manner in which,  they have listened 7 to many  complaints and suggestions.

McCallum,  Secretary Sunshine Coast  Kiwands Club.  FEWER BUSES  New buses numbering 506  were sold in Canada last year,  27 fewer than in 1953, decreases in Ontario and Quebec  outweighing increases in the  other provinces. Total retail  value dropped to $7,703,000  from $8,636,000.

If some  of his scurrilous comments ���  were to reach the ears of Mr.  Whitmbre they would leave  that gentleman crop^ared.  Comparing' Dave with the  teen-ager of the book it would,  appear that this person had  been a liability since birth. His  parents were well off and he  had followed his own" bent  through school and into college as a constant 7 source bf;  annoyance and cost^ until at  the age of 24 he condescends  to look for a job. In this same -  paper Twas some dreadful drivel with pictured about infantile jealousy atJ the new arrival; As there were only two  in the family it was a major  problem.

Editor: I am wondering how  many of our inhabitants are-  feeling the discomfort of the  rough gravel on our roads? I  think there must, be about 50  percent of the population who  have to walk on them a good  deal of .the time. There are  many mothers with baby-buggies, just what it must be to  push them is hard to. imagine  but must be very difficult and  the wear and tear on rubber  tires must be a consideration  too, to say nothing of shoes.  It is not very encouraging  for our visitors either, many  of whom used to come and enjoy the walks through the  trails, etc of which alas, we  have all too few.  The best remedy for this, I  suppose would be a roller and  the gravel rolled in but if that  is too expensive, as I suppose  it might be, I think at very  little cost when a road is beihg  fixed there might be a foot  path just levelled at the side  of the road wide enough for a  'baby buggy to be pushed  along. There is plenty of space  on almost. all of the roads and  if just levelled off would soon  pack itself down into a hard  path which would be easier to  walk on and would also help  to leave the roads clearer for  traffic.  I feeL that taxpayers other  than those owning cars should  have some consideration and  would suggest that such should  also write to your paper and  to the Commissioners.  Sidewalks are too expensive  yet^but I am sure that a path  would be of great advantage.  Hoping you and your paper  may back up this suggestion.  M. E.

Nature  Scrapbook  BY BILL MYRING  Few people realize that the  turtle, usually associated with  more southern climates, can  be found in British Columbia.  Indeed he can be found in the  Ok'anagan and Thompson Valleys, Vancouver Island and  Pender Harbour on the mainland coast of B.C.  ���'��� Automobile racing is the  most popular sport in the  World. About 5000 races each  year, in the United States, Eur-  ope and Latin America are  watched byi 25 million people.  The British Columbiam turtle is called the ^Western Painted Turtle, and can be distinguished by the brilliant colors  on .the underpat. Fresh water  turtles are properly called terrapin and although they "have  no teeth their jaws are equipped with chisel like biting  edges.  hay fields and orchards as well  as 7 Tree Farms and if not  checked by their natural enemies, hawks and owls, . can  create a mouse plague since in  a year they consume 24 to 36  pounds of food each.  It is evident that it is important that we. d0 not brand  all of our hawks and owls as  public enemies when a far  greaer enemy can be quietly  eating us out of house and  home.

DATE PAD  On Tuesday, July 12, inspection was made of the gardens  of the Junior Garden club,  sponsored by the Howe Sound  Farmers' Institute, and supervised by Mrs. Len Coates and  Mr.   Elmer McDannald.  By Rev. Robert F. Roysier ' .  (Rector,    St.   Paul's Episcopal  Church,  La  Porte,   Indiana)  Many who are concerned  with the carnage on our highways are beginning to see that  behind the fundamental causes  of traffic accidents lie real  moral issues. For too long people have only been concerned  with traffic laws, and have  been unconcerned with the  ��� moral problems which gave  rise to those laws.  We do not like to be told  we are immoral, and our favorite way of avoiding it is to  attempt to take "right-and-  wrong-ness" out of the picture.  By such specious reasoning we  have arrived, as a nation of  drivers, at the conclusion that  behavior behind the wheel is  a legal matter, not a moral  one. When reckless, thoughtless, selfish driving begins to  be known as sin, we will all  be safer.  You see, sin is still a nasty  little word. Even though' our  modern era tried laughing at  it, it wouldn't go away; the  era before had tried to reason  it out of existence, with like  success. Many a person is willing to be a law violator who  would resent being publicly  recognized; as a gross and unrepentant sinner. In spite of  our veneer of amorality, most '  of us thoroughly detest real  wickedness. It is time we  faced the fact that most traffic  accidents are simply the normal consequence of wilful,  wicked acts. Acts that are habits of sin, grown used to and  committed without a twinge of  conscience.  For example, a driver (your  normally moral and friendly  neighbor), leaves for. an appointment in a nearby city too  late to be assured of ah easy  .trip and an on-time arrival.  After a few minutes of impatience behind another vehicle while oncoming . traffic  prevented passing, he suddenly, decides to pass, well aware  of the fact that it will be close.  THIS,   DECISION    is      what  store safety t0 our highways  as a by-product of restoring  morality  to  our drivers.  (Father Royster was a practicing traffic and safety engineer before he entered Sea-  bury-Western Theological Seminary, Evanston, 111., to study  for the ministry.

WIND BLOWS FUSE  The power outage Saturday  afternoon was caused when  trees almost in front of the  Peninsula Cleaners caused  wires to knock together during the- height of the windstorm.  As a result all of Gibsons  including Gower' Point and  Headlands was without power  for approximately 90 minutes.  One of the main fuses at the  Gibsons sub-station was blown  and if took a little whiles to  discover the source of ;?the  trouble.

A notable example of this occurs iri the Valley of the Crooked Trees in Jasper Park.  - Close study by naturalists  show us that our bees are a  very sanitary lot. If a bee  should die in. one of the hive  cells, he is instantly pushed  out by his fellow workers and  then the dead atmosphere iri  the cell is aired out by two  of the little creatures standing  at the doorway using their  wings as ventilators.  The following, points constitute the basis of judging: Layout and general appearance,  30 points; care, 30 points; conduct, 20' points' and planting,  1 to 20 points.  There are 14 members in  this club.  There was evidence of good  planning and effort.  George S. Allen, Dean of  the Faculty of Forestry states:  "I have been*, asked many  times whether or not it is true  that we will be all out of timber in another 20 or 30 years."  "And why shouldn't such a  question be asked when we  read: "I-have watched this  Province for 50 years or more  being denuded with next to  nothing being done, in reforestation"   ��� a   statement made  by a distinguished and respect  ed gentleman.  To the best of    omics,  although further funds  our knowledge we have today    are needed to  equip and fur-  42 million acres of virgin timber, much of it overmature  and stagnant, and another 38  million acres of younger timber of various ages."

Often * called meadow mice,  they are actually not true  mice being distinguished from  true mice by their relatively  short, stout bodies, small ears  and short tails.

Voles are the most prolific  of mammals raising four ��� to  six litters during the year with  It  was  reported that about  85 percent of the gardens can  7] should concern us, for it is the  be classed at this date as very  *sin.that may produce    death,  iidisabling injury,. or. may - im-  i poverish both the sinner and  unknown innocents in at least  ���two other vehicles. It is the  essence of the same sin that  drives dictators to their merciless slaughter: a wilful pursuit of their own ends, with-:  out regard for others. The real  question is not whether the decision of the driver was legal  or not; rather, it is whether  the decision was immoral ���  wickedly, destructively sinful.  The driver who dawdles  along at a pace well below the  flow of traffic on a main highway is���a sinner as well as a  menace to life and limb. His  sin is selfishness, reckless and  often deadly selfisnness. The  after-cocktail driver is a gambler, with the- stakes his neighbor's life. The sleepy driver is  an egoist, assuming that he  can safely operate a vehicle  with practically none of his  senses functioning. Whenever  human failure is a significant  "factor in producing an accident (and that means in nearly  every one) the failure can be  seen as a violation of God's  law, not just man's law.  The effects of these driving  sins are those always produced  by sin. They are outreaching  circles of evil consequences,  wayelets receding from the  initial act. We are so enmeshed in the effects of these sins  that the honestly safe driver  is often a helpless victim of  this mass immorality. We are  caiight up in a web of sin on  the* highways, and heroic  measures are called for.  It is not enough to advertise and propagandize against  dangerous and illegal driving  practices: sin has seldom been  noticeably affected this way.  The best answer t0 the problem is to recover our moral  sense on the highway.

One day he disappeared, never to be seen  again. The general opinion  was that somehow he had fall-  en into the lake and drowned.  To illustrate how quiet  things became after the outbreak! of war, Tug Wilson told  how he was once left in charge  of the store while John: West  went to town.

Fishi  BY CHUCK TOMPKINS  Well, another week of soft-  ball is over and one replay  has been ordered and, if you  can imagine it, another protest made.  A replay game between Wilson Creek and the Firemen,  for the game that was protested by Wilson Creek because  of an umpire's ruling on a  ground rule will be played in  th<�� near future. I wonder why  the umpire in question was  not present at the meeting to  give his side of the story?  On Sunday the Wilson  Creek club swamped the hapless Firemen 11-2 and believe  it or not the Firemen are protesting the game on three  points which could in no way  have had any bearing on the  outcome of the game. No matter how warm it gets, Doug,  keep your shirt on!  Of course, the Wilson Creek  protest of a week agg could  not have had much bearing on  their loss either. But no matter how you slice it boys, it's  still chicken.  KALLEYS  POTATO  Sunday, July 24:  Pender  at  Mechants,  2.30.  Firemen at Seehelt, 6.00.  W.C. at Port Mellon, 6.00.  July 26: Port Mellon at  Firemen, 6.30.  July 27:- Merchants at Seehelt, 6.30.  July 28: W.C. at Pender, 6.00  The Merchants lost 9-2 to  Pender last week and coach  Ernie Hume, Port Mellon, had  the privilege of being the first  Port chucker to convincingly  beat the Merchants this year.  The Port Mellon team whitewashed the Merchants 10-1  Sunday.  "Muscles", Kuwica came  back from vacation in time to  edge out Pender 5-4 on Sunday afternoon.  The Firemen downed Seehelt 12-5 Tuesday night and  Pender edged them out 8-7  Sunday night.

This of course depends  on how the Fireboys make out  in the replay with Wilson  Creek.  As for their remaining  games until deadline they will,  with the exception of Port  Mellon, be playing the two  . team^s that have not beaten  them this year. They have,  counting Tuesday's contest, 2  games with Merchants and  one with Seehelt. Should either of these teams upset them  it would ��� cause the Firemen  serious discomfort.  Looking at the remaining  Port Mellon games I see they  must play Wilson Creek twice  (once a postponed game) ,and  the Firemen once, Vhich .to  me looks to be the tougher  schedule of the two teams'.  Port Mellon Ladies' -Softball  team coach, Red Addison, announces his team has accepted  for the fourth game of ' the  the challenge of Chops' Mops  series.  The game will    be    played  Monday, July 25, at 7 p.m. at*  Gibsons    Elementary      School  grounds.  Bill Skellet, who is coaching  the Gibsons girls in the absence of Chops McGean, feels  confident the Mops will be  hard to beat after the valiant  way they stood up to the hard  hitting Kiwanians last  week.  This promise to be another  enjoyable game and a good attendance is expected.  . The Ladies' Softball teams  have expressed a desire to  have Seehelt and other areas  form teams and extend the  fun and interest this "Powder  Puff" league has created. So  come on girls, how about it?  Elphinstone     High     School -  girls  will  play Chops'     Mops  this Friday evening at  7 p.m.  at the same place.  In this  issue  of The' Coast  News  you will see the ballot -  complete with instructions for  the   "Most  Popular  Player  of  the Year" award which is being donated  by  Vince Prewer ���  of Marine Men's Wear in Gibsons. This is a fine gesture on  the part of Mr. Prewer and if  it is to be a success everyone  should vote.  Once again, I say that this is  not for the "best" player in  the league.

TRY  Dining  Room  OUR   SPECIALTIES  Thanks to the terrific pitching of Johnny Clayton I made  another correct prediction  last Sunday.  "I- Predict" says Port Mellon over Wilson Creek on Sunday.  Little League  Teams honored'  Pender Harbour Little  League executive gave a dinner fo the players and parents'  of the Little, League ball team  last'Friday evening. The boys  found there was more turkey  and ice cream than they could  eat. Turkey and ham with all  the trimmings were served in  the ^community hall, and the  evening wound up with the  showing of the 1954 World  Series game between Giants  and Cleveland.  R. Spicer and Dave Wend-  land, were active, in the arrangements, preparation and  handling of the whole evening  as were many members of the  executive committee. The players were delighted.  Wilson Creek  At the Moorehouse beach, at  Davis Bay on Tuesday evening  Wilson Creek Little Leaguers  enjoyed a beach party, with  more hot dogs and watermel-  lon than' they had1 seen at one  time. .  Doug Oike and Gus Crucil,  with members of the executive  put a lot of Wbrk into this gathering.  The feature of- the supper  was a huge cake-decorated in  the form of a ball diamond,  complete . with players and  manager, back stop and all.'  Having won 16 games, the  players were honored with 16  candles atop the wonder cake.  About 20 parents, guests,  the whole team and all the  spares were present.  According to figures released recently by the Hospital Insurance Service, approximately $126,675,000 was    paid    to  hospitals by \ the government  on behalf of 1,250,000 qualified B.C. residents who received hospital treatment between  January 1, 1949, When the service was inaugurated, andi  March 31, 1955. Of this sum,  $125,675,000 was paid in respect to treatment provided  by approved hospitals in British Columbia, and $1,000,000  was paid for care received outside the province.  When a B.C. resident is admitted to hospital, the Service-  pays an all-inclusive public -  ward daily rate (less the $1  per day payable by the patient) for as long as the patient requires acute daily care.  The largest hospital bill, recorded so far exceeded $18,000  and it was paid on behalf of a  young man hospitalized for  many months after a serious  automobile acident. However,  in 1954 the average length of  stay for adults and... children  in approved B.C. hospitals was  10.31 days, and the average  hospital bill paid by the service was approximately $125.  A patient must prove that  he is a qualified resident of  British Columbia , before he  can secure any of the benefits  provided under the Hospital  Insurance Act. When it becomes necessary to go to hospital, a person should try to  take with him to ,the hospital  some item which proves that  he has lived in British Columbia for one year or more   be  fore the date on which he is  admitted to hospital. One of  the best ways of doing this is  to secure a statemen or letter  from an employer showing  steady employment during the  period concerned. The - service  has issued 1,100 B.C. companies supplies of employer certificates for this purpose. These  certificates should be requested by an- employee only when  he knows that he or a member  of his family is actually going  to hospital. .  Fred Fletcher 'of Garden  Bay reports that the springs  are running in the harbour  and big catches are be|ng  made.  Ethel Larson of Larson's Resort at Madeira Park confirms  this. She says more Vancouver people are discovering the-  Sunshine Coast and that the  U.S. visitors are as numerous  as ever.

Seagram Tourney  Golfing enthusiasts who like  the short end of 18-1 odds are  saying a Canadian can do it  again, this year to keep the  Seagram Gold Cup in Canada.  For 18 straight summers,  Canadian golfers failed to retain the symbol of Canadian  golfing supremacy.  Last year a Canadian, Pat  Fletcher, ���of Saskatoon, drove,  chipped and stroked his way  through "a four-round, 72-hole  competition and came up with  the winning score ��� 280  strokes.  He has announced he'll be  out again come August to defend his championship at the  1955 Canadian Open at the  Weston (Toronto) Golf and  Country  Club.  Early entries indicate, the  field will comprise at least 160  of the best amateurs and professionals in Canada and the  United. States.  The prize money of $15,000  is attracting promising Canadian golfers who believe it  can be done a second time.  iii*  op  ese  Prices  Effective.
