VON services will be discontinued on the Sunshine  Coast area after Feb. 29.  ���This'was decided at the annual meeting of the organization in Roberts Creek Legion  hall, Jan. 19 when after a reluctant decision it was moved  and seconded that it would be*  best for the organization to  close activities in view of the  lack of need for its facilities-  The meeting, attended by  about 25 persons, in view of  the position as reported by*  ' Nurse Marjorie F. Joyce, came  to the conclusion that it would-  be wisest to end VON activities in this district.  A complete account of Nurse;  Joyce's annual report and the  four months report during;  which she did VON work wij__  be found on page three of this  issue.  In this report Nurse Joyce?  streesed the fact she was actually serving five medical  patients and two DVA patients  making a total of seven  patients in all. She also commented on the fact she hacl  support from only one doctor/  in  this   area.  In analyzing her work she  explained that most of it was-  preventative.: rather that actual  sickness, a field which was  covered by the Provincial  Health  Nurse.  The regional VON director  Miss R. McClan was present  land-i aided: ��� proceedings^,, by  pointing out the limitations "of"  VQN work.

In all 157 ballots were cast and none were spoiled.  There were 86 in favor and 71 against.  Now the vote has been taken and the result known perhaps it is not out of the way to suggest that if the vote  was to be taken again more would flock to the ayes and  fewer to the nays. The initial vote could have passed with  a greater majority if fears had been suppressed and a  brighter viewpoint taken of Sechelt's future.  Again The Coast News will say Sechelt has gained more  than it has lost..To keep a growing community in "short  pants" too long is not good for community enterprise and  Sechelt is the most enterprising community along the Sunshine Coast.   "       .      ���  What happens following the vote is being ascertained  by those interested and it might take a matter of -two or  three weeks or more before the new Village Commission  l-olds   its   first  meeting.  Plenty of work faces those involved in the setting up  ef .the-municipal government so it should be the duty of  every resident of Sechelt to do his or her part in helping  things along. Obstructionists, at this stage of proceedings,  should forget the past and work, with a will towards the  future. Maybe they might like incorporation after they  ihave seen it v/6rk and.tasted its'benefits. ��� . /  Sechelt has a .quality of businessmen quite, capable of  running community affairs.. Someone with municipal ex-  .perience should' be chosen as village clerk. He can be a  tower of strength in any municipal council.  Whatever The Coast News can do to assist Sechelt in  setting up its municipal government, by acquainting   the  public with what is going on, will be done with fairness.  Seehelt deserves to start its new career .as. a village with  - all the help it can get.  First Roberts Qreek Cubs  held their first birthday party  Monday.

Don't think I am suggesting anything, but it is. drawing  trade to Nova Scotia. And  what is wrong with our Peninsula?  On reading the works of  Burns, one finds he was a Tory  (rebellious of course). He had  nothing against Capital, just  ��_e lack of it. He did hate  enobbery which is not unknown today.

I listened extensively to both sides of the issue  from business men, the public,  and the Board of Trade, and  can honestly say that no mud  was splattered in either direction  in my hearing.  The Coast News editorials  were inspiring on the subject,  and I'm sure they helped get  the people cut to vote whichever way their concerns were.  Even the Poll Clerks were  amazed at the wonderful turnout on such a miserable day.  E.M. Lumsden.

I���-Va fg&ifcRsr'  SHIPS OF DESIRE  Over the years I have known  hundreds of people who have  longed for things which did  not come to pass* with many  the desires died down; others  kept on hoping, frequently  with a sense of frustration.  There are few people who  have not carried deep down  in their hearts some unfilled  desires. By this we do not  mean fugitive daydreams, but  rather aspirations and longings  which have had-permanent results in fashioning their char  acters.  *     *     *  In a poem of singular beauty  and tenderness^ Glen Ward  Dresbach writes of, one who,  although working on an inland  farm, all his life dreamed of  sailing ships, of seas and ports  he could , not even name.  Youth and middle age passed  and still the harvests grew  and heldyhim.  Too old at last for work, his  knotted hands  Have  turned to dreams his  youth saw shining by,  . And 'at a    window    facing  prairae  lktnds  He sees the cloud-ships billowed down the sky.  Each day he ��� sits there, till  the  light must: fail,;  To  build    his    little    ships  that never sail.  .        *     *     *  Chesterton   once   wrote   of  Robert 7Louis   Stevenson:  "He  died with   a   thousand  stories'  in his heart."

Over 50 years ago a 15 year-  old boy, eldest in a family of  six living in the north of England, had shown i unusual aptitude in his studies at  school.  They were poor people - the  father was a laborer in a stone  quarry - but the boy was encouraged to hope that he might  be sent to a school of higher  learning.  One  morning  a fall  of stone bured the father beneath it, and only a few hours  after he left, his lifeless body  was  brought home. The    boy  who had hoped so much, gently put his arms    around1'  his  mother and told her that,  as  far as he was .able, he would  take  his father's    place    and  help to'care, for his   younger  brothers and sisters. The next  day he went to the quarry and  never returned to school.  The writer knew him well;  ���he never complained or indulged in self pity, but  throughout a long life he .served as a Sunday School teacher  and because of 'his unusual.  intelligence and consecration  to God, he laid his hand for  good upon scores of young  people who recognized the  strength of his mind and the  beauty  of his character.

Ii .***.  For Staff Holidays  Yeut Co-operation  Will Be Appreciated  vo  V    REPORT ON  ANNUAL MEETING  Report from Nurse  : In 1937, the need was felt for a home nursing service in  the Sechelt Peninsula, Here it was largely through the  .efforts of Mrs.7 _reeh, the Farmers' Institute and interested members of the'community that the Elphinstone Branch,  had ite beginning, The first meeting was held in Gibsons  and a ladies auxiliary was formed in the Grantham's area.  The general programme of bedside nursing, prenatal and  postnatal care and instruction, with the infant to, six weeks  of age was carried by one nurse. The service was extended to all people regardless of color, creed or circumstance  in the area from, Gibsons to Sechelt.  In 1947, two nurses were employed in order that attention might; be giyen to .the schcol programme as well as  the existing home nursing programme. Boundaries of the  area served were extended to    William's    Landing    and [  Silversands: This was an. important milestone in  the  life.  of this branch as it depicted the true role of the voluntary agency in pointing the.need of service to the official  agency. Subsequently the Provincial Department of Health  and Welfare had its beginning    here.    The    Elphinstone  Branch withdreW one nurse and the Public Health Nurse  carried the school programme and the Well Child Clinic.  About this time, the Department p^ Indian Affairs requested thafe'Y.OiN.  service  be? extended, to  the  Sechelt  Band and the .children of  the 'Residential School.    This  service has been; continued since ..that time with'the exception of a. short period in 1952. Here..the*nurse works in  co-operation .With the various personnel; of the Federal Department of1 Health. This is a very interesting part of our  service and it is unique to the Elphinstone Branch.  . , 1955 has been, a year of changes - from; the standpoint  of  nursing personnel,   as 'the   Elphinstone   Branch  began  the yearV without an appointed nurse-in-charge. However,  Miss  Cooper   was  acting    nurse-in-charge   .for   the   first  seven months, during which time, "she carried the bedside  nursing and health instruction programme of the V.O.N.  as well as the injection service to the T.B.,patients in the  P.H.N, absence. V  As~ is' customary, the Regional Director, Miss McClan,  made her first visit of the year in the early spring. These  visits, are made in order to supervise the nurse and to give  assistance to the Board and nurse in any problems relative  to the service, The regional Director's visit is greatly.appreciated by all' concerned, and especially so in a one  nurse branch as it reminds us that we are not alone in our  , work and* that we can always benefit from the help given  by those with mere experience, a wider knowledge and  a greater understanding. Miss McClan's visit was followed  by a second visit a month later and it was upon her recommendation to the National Office that Miss Ross came to the  branch for the month of August. This provided for' a better opportunity to study and carry out an extensive survey  of the nursing service and the needs cf the Sechelt  Peninsula.  Coinciding with my- appointment in September, every  effort was made to stimulate public interest and provide  a better understanding of the V.O.N, service. Two new  auxiliaries were formed-one in Sechelt, and one in Granthams. . '  Miss McClan made a third visit in October and attended  the Board at that time.  My diligent efforts to promote good publicity and to  demonstrate the service, with a special interest in building  up the bedside nursing aspect of the programme have, in  scmeways been discouraging. Although there were twice  as many visits: mao'e in the last four months of the year  as in the -first eight months, the picture is similar. The  problem which"'confronted my predecessors for the past-  four years^ also confronted me. A lessening pf visits being made for bedside nuring care - with the result that at  the close of the year there were only seven persons  receiving visits--for which the Order was originally  established.  In closing, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Dr. H.F. Inglis and Miss A. Myers, P H.N. for  their / cooperation and assistance in professional matters  of  common interest.  Thanks to the; Telephone Operators and the Staff of the  Drugstores in both Gibsons and Sechelt and to- Mrs. A.  Burns of tlie School Board for their valuable contribution in locating the nurse fcr the patients and the  patients for the nurse.  Thanks also to my relief nurse Miss  M. Cooper.  '   Tp the President, Mrs. H. Wallis, the Secretary, Mrs. N.  Haley, and the Treasurer, Mr. W.B. Boucher, and the  Members of the Board -1 would like to express my personal  thanks for the competent assistance and wholehearted support which they haive given me. It has been a pleasure t��  work with them.  Respectfully submitted.  Marjorie F. Joyce.  Four months report  A review of my work of the past fouR months and a  picture of the situation at tills time, follows:    -     :  There were 1,007 visits made from Septembers 1, 1955  to December 31, 1955�� .  yi'The V.O.N. car travelled 3,320 miles during the four  months and. of that time was in the garage for repair  approximately three weeks. V .���    ;'y  On Dcember. 13,. 1955 the car was struck on the left  front fender by Dal Trigg when he backed his gravel truck  up hill on.Rocky Road above Fletcher St, V.O.N. car was  stopped at the time of the accident. Estimated damage is  $32 00X Work 'has yet to be done to repair the fender.  During the month of September, the. nurse attended  two meetings which were called to interest the people in  forming new auxiliaries to the V.O.N. in Granthams..; and  Sechelt. There is a small nucleus, of conscientious workers  in each area, and I wish to take this opportunity tb thank'  them for their efforts.  When I was appointed to the Elphinstone Branch of the  V.O.NM I had two objectives: ,7  . 1. To promote good, publicity for the V.O.N. and. to  demonstrate the value of its service, to .the Sechelt  Peninsula.  2. ��� To build up the General nursing care aspect of our  programme.  My untiring efforts to carry out my objectives have to a  large extent been unsuccessful. For this failure there are  two  reasons:-  1. I am dependant upon referrals from the medical  profession. I have the support of one doctor.  2. I am dependant upon requests for service from the  general public - Easy accessibility t�� hospitals in both  Vancouver and Pender Harbour, and the marvels cf  new treatments and wonder drugs make the number  of acutely ill in the home much fewer than in past  years. In the homes where there are chronically ill  persons, families still do their own home nursing.  Now I would like to point out our present situation -  exclusive of our contract with the Dept. of Indian Affairs'\  as  of Januai'y  1,  1956.

Arnold Webster MLA, Leader of the official opposition, make his traditional address to the legislature. They were Tony Bullock, Ralph Moore, Patricia  McKenzie, Phyllis Gobbee,  Kenzie Smith, Ernest Cummings, and Robert Hastie, accompanied by Mr. D. Wells of  Powell River Brocks High  School.  Though the courtesy of the  Speaker, Mr. Irwin, I was  able to have lunch with them  before the afternoon 'sssion  began.  Mr. Webster's greatest attribute as a person, and perhaps his greatest fault as a  politician is that he is a gentleman. He is a rare thing among  politicians; a truly modest  man. He gets his satisfactions  out of life from the quiet  knowledge that he is trying  to do the right thing. Mr.  Webster took a $2,000 a year  cut in salary to become an  MLA.  . ,1 have never seen Mr. Webster angry on the floor of the  Legislature. I may never see it.  Though he is quite capable of  becoming angry when a political thought or act offends his  own moral judgement. Newspaper reporters, who are pretty  good judges cf people, tell me  that his presentation to the  legislature last Thtirsday on  Dominion-Provincial relations  was measured and masterful  in its scope.  His job is to criticize the  government.    That's   what    a  Ih'''tHis"vtep'prVJ'-frdm';MQ^is-.  trate Johnston's police   court,  all cases heard since just prior  to Christmas are given.

Joseph Jeffries, Sechelt, was  fined $30 and costs for driving  without due care and attention  near Wakefield.  Operating a motor vehicle  contrary to restrictions on his  driver's licence -cost John Wel-  bourne of Gibsons $25 and  costs.  Arthur 'Dearl Phillips of  Vancouver, was represented in  court by W.R. Martin, Barrister, of Vancouver. He pleaded  not guilty to a charge of driving without due care and attention. The charge arose  from an accident in whioh his  truck collided with a car  driven by E.B. Taylor, of Roberts Creek, on the wharf at  Gibsons on Dec. 19, 1955. Mr.  Philips was found guilty, and  fined $50 and costs.  Lawrence Bellerose Sechelt,  found guilty of being in possession of beer on the Indian  Reserve, was fined 520 and  costs. A case of beer was  seized.  Huch Hatchard of West Sechelt, and Dacre Powell of  Gibsons, were each fined $25  and costs for exceeding the  speed limits at Roberts Creek  and Selma Park respectively.  Wilfred John of Sechelt, who  was found in a state of intoxication at 9:30 a.m. in. Sechelt,  spent the day in jail. He told  the court he had 3 glasses of  beer in the beer parlour the  previous evening, and had gone  to bed at 11 p.m. He was found  guilty and fined $10 and costs,  or 5 days in jail. He paid the  fine. "'  Peter Hanson of Pender  Harbour, who drove his car  into a ditch near Sechelt, was  fined $25 and costs for driving without due care and attention.  Joseph Allan Jones of Gibsons paid a fine of $50 and costs  for driving without due care  and attention near the Sea view  Cemetary, causing damage in  excess of $500 to the car.

Nobody, except the very narrow-minded,  could feel that the government could do no wrong. Indeed all political. parties and:  governments, and my own  party is no exception, is composed of human beings who  make mistakes and have the  usual run of human frailties.  One of the most serious of  these frailties as far a& government is concerned' is a belief that you have the final  and only answer.  The leader of the opposition  is there on behalf of the people  of B.C. to be the public's  watchdog, a kind of composite  taxpayer, constantly looking  over the Cabinet's shoulder.  Last week he accused the  government of "village pump  politics". "We must deplore  any tendency towards Canadian Balkanization in Dominion-Provincial relations" he  said. "Extreme invective does  nothing to clarify the confusion  and uncertainty that characterize the business, relations  of governments in Canada today" he told Mr. Bennett.  In a reference to the federal - provincial tax conference  last summer he said "The  brief presented by this province was- disappointing. It contained some vague proposals  for changes in our present tax  agreements. But it did not  present any substantial arguments or financial data to support them. Above all, the brief  failed to recognize that ^pro  vincial resourse development,  provincial financing, and tax  agreements can no longer be  regarded in the light of the interests peculiar to any individual province.  "These questions must be  considered from the viewpoint  of Canada as a nation. This  government appears to lack,  any such conception," Mr.  Webster concluded.  RED St..

The big difference is that the  Navy team plays and practices  all the time while with the  Orphans it is sort of touch and  go affair whether they can get  a place to practice.  Friday night will be Pender  Harbour's first appearance on  the local basketball courts as  they . take on the much improved Elphinstone Cougars.  I can't make much of a forecast on this game as I have  not seen the Pender club in action but from what I hear they  are sure to give the Cougars a  real run for their money and  as experience is one of the  deciding factors who knows  what will happen?  There is always at least one  bad apple in a barrel and in  this one it is the lack of attendance at basketball games. I  cannot understand (unless it is  the T.V. bug)), how people in  a small area such as this can  stay away from so many sporting events.  rs. M. Hackett  . Canon Oswald of tlie Anglican church officiated at the  last rites for Mrs. Marjorie  Hackett widow of B. Hackett,  for many year manager of  Union- Estates at Sechelt, and  after whom Hackett Park x is  named.  She died recently in the Mali on Nursing home after a long  illness. She was a pioneer resident of Sechelt. Pall bearers  were Mr. Hugh Buckley, Mr.  Archie Cawley, Mr. Ben Lang,  Mr. Harry Billingsley "Mr.  Eric Clayton and Mr. W.  Youngson.  Mrs. Hackett leaves a son  Robert in North Vancouver, also a grandson. A brother lives  at Hedley, B.C., a sister and  brother in Ireland and a sister  in  South Africa.  All sports here are of high  calibre but they have.to have  support to keep1 going. It cannot be the money angle because prices out here are so  low. It is the question of moral  support and pride in what your  local athletes can do.
