SHjBB  Shop and Compare:  SYLVIA'S  The handiest store ia Town  Open daily ��� 8 a.m. to Midnight  ances  improve  ' " About 40 members and  'friends of St. Mary's Hospital  . Society spent an hour-and-a-  ' half of almost midsummer sun-  ��� shine .Sunday afternoon at the  * Pender Harbour Community  ; Hall for, the Society's Annual  Meeting: They heard/ good  news. Through the efforts of  a large number of individuals  and organizations, the board  of trustees, the administrator  the nursing staff, Dr. Playfair  .and Dr. Swan, and the various  friends in every part of the Sechelt Peninsula, the hospital  is" today in the best financial  situation since the Society took  over from the Columbia Coast  Mission.  ���   All   those -present  received  an abbreviated copy of the au-  ' dited financial statement for  the past year (which appears  in full on page 5 of this issue).  In outlining the year's activities, A.A. Lloyd, chairman,  said there are still occasional  suggestions that the hospital  is overstaffed. It 'should be.re-  membered, he said, that a patient is a. patient 24 hours of  every day and must be provided with, service, nursing at->  tention and 'facilities during'  all that tfrfte, whereas, a staff  memjbef is only., on staff 8  hours a. day and needs days off  and vacation. In actual fact  the. s!taff - allotment is below  that allowed' by the British  Columbia Hospital' Services,  Which putsa strict limit on the  amount of:*taff that can he  hired, Mr. Lloyd said.;  MrJ; Lloyd reported^ on stheT,  current drive for funds to nwP'"  ��� deraize ^the electrical wiring.  The earliest reports Jroni "can-,  vassers were- alrinfest sufficient  to let ike extract, -but a $40,0*  Auxiliary^t^.St: Mary'tf toge-'  ther 'with help from the St.  Mary's Hospital Auxiliary,  whose faithful members had  worked hard to increase their  regular financial support, had  put them over the top.' Tenders: are now out and the .work  would" go 'forward rapidly.  Among the highlights of the  chairman's report was the news  , that the late Gabriel Eluk of  Roberts Creek had left his property as a bequest io the Society. The estate, after various  formalities were cleared*away  would leave about $1,400 as a  generous and substantial contribution to the work of the  hospital.  In closing, the chairman expressed the thanks of the board  of trustees for the wholehearted support cojning from  ail parts of the Peninsula' and  in other areas of B.C., both  from individuals and organizations such as: The W-A. of  Port Mellon, Community  Church, ��� BiSings Bay Harvest  Festival," St. Peter's W.A. at  Hatzic, All Sappers W.A. at  Chilliwack7 Camp,' Mt.

Thanks  were due also, he sai<d, tether  various   industrial  firms   and  companies operatingT along: the  Peninsula, who. were showing  their appreciation of Tthe yser- ���  vices pf - the hospital,  by .ac-y  counting for a very feir share f  of-the tptp funds' being donat-  during  the .present   earn-"  Change date  1 John Fisher, radio's Mr. Canada, now promoting tourism,  will be in Gibsons Sat.

He pointed out that the  provincial government strived  to take all the'credit for-what  was being done in British Columbia overlooking the fact the  federal government provided a  great deal of the money. The  B.C. government he explained  complains about high taxes  yet takes the money Ottawa  hands out and takesi all the  credit for what it does with  that money," and the federal  government gets tlie abuse.

As far as federal assistance  on any Columbia River power  project is concerned "we "are  not going to hand out $300,-  000,000   without  having "some*v  ' direet interest, either through  a joint company with the/province or by doing some of the  . work ourselves." Mr. Sinclair  said.   The federal government  a certainly will not hand over  such a large sum without having something to say about how  it will be handled.  Discussing reasons why Canada has not recognized China  Mr. Sinclair said there was a  general feeling growing that  China might be ready to conform with international law  and if we could recognize China  it would eventually lead to a  considerable trade with China  which would greatly affect the  port of Vancouver.

All proceeds will be'.turned  over to the Commission, with  the exception of a percentage  t0 the May Day committee.  Orders of the dav will be hot  and cold turkey dinners with  all the trimmings, hot dogs,  hamburgers, pop, ice cream  and coffee at usual prices.  and the success or otherwise  of; that people will perhaps be  measured by the proportion of  the ingredient parts.;.  Certainly, ��� when one looks  back over the record, one cannot, fail, to be struck by 'the  vast amount of work, and no  inconsiderable amount of money, that was poured into enterprises that never didL produce  any. but the most meagre tangible rteward. Perhaps the  more evident of this: are the  many efforts at fruit farming,  chicken ranching, etc.  Five or. ten acres of stumps  and brush, often far up on the  mountain side, where a hopeful settler went in, paid money  for the land, put up some sort  of a shack, struggled with  stumps .and stones in all his  spare time from the. main effort of trying to get enough  money for a  living,  and then  after two, three ormore.Tyears  of heart-breaking toil abandoned ��� the place," sacrificing usually some money,, a lot of work,  and a few! years ? of his life.  And ir&ny of. those places have  return^ to theT jungle; they  coidd riot ncJw" be found.  .-���On the other.;.hand,,many; of  those places were developed  into farm-homes; small as to  farms, it is;-true, and as tb  homes usually lacking many  of the conveniences .that are  considered a mUst in the "American way of life." But there  was perhaps a feeling of independence, and freedom from  much of the regimentation that  seems to be a part of modern  living.        .' T.v ���  Those early settlers were  perhaps -the real "sturdy individualists." Tjhey seemed to be  completely self-reliantpif their  plans and efforts proved to be  ill-advised they accepted the  penalty of failure^ without ya  whimper." But they paid hot  the slightest attention to even  the few Government regulations current in .those days.  Generally speaking, they were  a law unto themselves  ever,   those * few  ���laws;; to - which ; they y dicl 'ysuj**  ecribe had quite a sound .basis  in equity; so far as I know, in.  the.earJLy -y&ays'X^^oulbitlf .there  was everTa':idcke& SqorTon isihy  hpuse rii the ^ghborhood;^yet* - 1^arns Tof it accidentally.  the contents were never ^-,��� fTh���� En<3Y ��� ~  merely be'tfe^ otf^^ wr&;:  1, foi2^ne^<r^^<^gc^another,  happened   to.  become   aware.
