This was not the intention of  my statement as Dr. Morris  might not have stayed no matter  how friendly :the attitude of the  community. The one important  point I wish to make was that  any serious community argument  makes it difficult to' obtain a replacement. Most doctors do not  choose a rural practice and they  are -still more reluctant to enter  an area where-there has been a  recent controversy involving the  doctor.  I -believe'the best way to attract a resident doctor,. whether  in association withPitie Medical  Clnic; Or ,in independent practice  is. to permit oid'=^quane'ls'::tp'.'.''die'  and :��� assure interested doctors  they are welcome:. -.Pyp^pyy''  R.

The old order changeth  Growing pains are showing again, with Roberts Creek Community Club at its last meeting signifying its intention of looking into the  (possibilities of a municipality being formed for Roberts Creek area.  Not more than five of six weeks ago Selma Park Was advised not  to try seeking amalgamation with Sechelt but to form a village municipality unto itself. This information was prompted by a letter from  a taxpayer to the department of municipal affairs in Victoria.  Gibsons is improving its water supply and looking forward to  expanding its boundaries. Sechelt is in the throes of zoning and rezoning according to growing requirements. In Pender Harbour area,  South Pender Harbour Waterworks is busy with construction of a  water system.  Halfmoon Bay, Granthams and Hopkins Landing, still in unorganized territory, might soon be looking towards the problems of  fire, water and perhaps municipal affairs, before too many years  go by.  There are now 14 schools under the direction of the Sechelt  Schobl District and its budget is edging mighty close to the million  dollar mark. More space will be needed for purposes of educating  children within the next three years.  The days of the dirt road and cow trail have: evaporated. Dirt  roads and cow trails, like the timber loggers seek, are to be found  farther and farther away as each year passes. /The old order chianig-  eth of necessity.  ��� "���; ;-'  Be satisfied ���-- Buy two!  Sometime during the next week you will be greeting at your  ffloor two or three uniformed ���girls offering for sale Girl Guide Cookies. The cookies are selling at 45 cents per box. What happens to that  ���45 cents? .       " '  These cookies come in cartons of 12 and the Guide association  net profit is $2.78 per carton of 12 boxes. Of this amount 88 cents  goes directly to local Guide and Brownie groups to finance local  needs. Another 88 cents is retained by the Division which administers four districts from Elphinstone area to Powell River and Texada Island. The remaining 86 cents goes to the provincial council to  help finance administering to the needs of 29,000 Guides, Brownies  and Rangers in the province.  This is the only province-wide appeal made by Guides and  Brownies so give yourself the satisfaction of 'helping a vital citizenship training program. Buy not one box ��� try two! ���E.B.  Misplaced umbrellas  Why do umbrellas rate high amongst most forgotten things? A  trip among shops in Gibsons the other day revealed in three out of  three stores visited there was a forgotten umbrella. sRain makes one  remember them but a dry sky does the opposite. That appears to  be the only explanation.  An umbrella, of cheap and clumsy fabrication has become known  as a gamp, so-called because of the Dickens' character known as  Sairey Gamp who keeps popping up in Dickens' Martin Chuzzlewit  along with her non-existent Mrs. 'Arris whom she is continually  ���quoting for opinions in agreement with her own.  There might be a few gamps in this area but the most of umbrellas available cannot be described as gamps. Gamps or umbrellas,  they are left in stores al over the country, and are a curiosity in the  sense they are so necessary at times yet beome a lost article when  you want it most.  Somehow sunshades do not seem to suffer the ignominy of becoming a lost article. Perhaps the sunshade matches the costume  one is wearing and is therefore a necessity, shade or no shade. Therefore umbrellas should be manufactured in varid colors. Rain is color blind. It just falls where it happens to be. So a cerise umbrella  while not affecting the rain might stir the owner into not leaving it  lying about in stores. It is a thought worth exploring.  ._3��       JdcKWyli*  In British Columbia, the provincial legislature has' delegated much of the' authority in  health to municipal government  ��� city, district and village ���  under the Health act passed in  1946. ,      '  Each municipal council is designated as a board of health by  % duties of the'.Health act and is  charged with the responsibility  for:  1. Appointing a Medical Health  Officer ��� The council of every  municipality in the- province  shall appoint a medical practitioner duly registered under the  Medical act to practice medicine  ' and    surgery,    to    be    medical  health officer of the municipality.  2. Administering the Health  act and its regulations ��� There  shall be a local board of health  in each municipality which- shall  consist of the council of the  municipality.  The local board shall superintend and see to, the execution of  any regulations made under this  act, or to execute or aid in executing the same within their respective jurisdiction and .to do  and provide all such acts, matters and things as are necessary  for superintending or aiding in  the execution, of such regulations, or for executing the same  as the case may require.  Each board of school trustees  is charged under the Public  Schools Act with the responsibili- ,  ty for providing adequate school  health services, and appointing  a school health inspector, who  will be the health unit director  where services are purchased  from 'a health unit.  Under the Health act two or  more municipal councils may  unite their respective municipalities into one district termed a  Union, and organize and main-  lain a Union Board of Health.  The participating- municipal  councils - .may enter into an  agreement with the board of  school trustees of any school dis  trict to transfer to the Ur'on  Board of Health .those responsibilities of - the v board of school  trustees required under the Public Schools' act.  Functions of Union Boards  1. A Union Board shall exercise co-ordinating, supervisory,  advisory " and consultative ' functions in the administration of  ��� health services in the area within the jurisdiction of the Union  Board, / but shall not exercise '  any legislative functions in that  regard. n  The Union Board of Health  serves as ,a co-ordinating and  supervisory body advising the  health unit director in' respect  to the .field services which will  be provided for' the people. The  legislation, for the most part,  provides authority to the board ���  for enforcement of the Health  act and its regulations.  Inasmuch as public health involves community-wide organization and effort, the Union Board  of Health assumes a liaison role  .between {he community and the  Health unit, and as such interprets public health and public  health services to the community  through the agencies which the  board members represent. In addition, the members as community officials should bring to the  attention of the Health unit director, the views and opinions  of the community.  Summary  The duties and responsibilities  of a Union Board of Health may  then be summarized as:  1. Initially, in co-operation with  the Health branch, Department  of Health Services and Hospital  to  organize the Health unit.  2. To ensure administration of  (a) the Health.act and its regulations; (b) sections of the' Public Schools act, related to health;  (c) sections of the Municipal act;  (d) local health by-laws.  Another paradise?  Mr. and Mrs. Ben Lang of Sechelt recently returned from a  two week vacation on Grand Cayman Island, British West Indies.  They ��� report \a most ; interesting, /  enjoyable,' warm, sun filled trip.  .. Mode of travel was by Pacific  ; Western Airlines direct flight  from Vancouver with 72 cafe-  free passengers on a DC7.  '���:   :  Grand Cayman Island is in the'  heart of the Caribbean," being  the largest of a group of three  islands. It is 22 miles long and  eight miles wide arid' its capital  is Georgetown. The affairs of  the Islands are handled by an administrator appointed from London. Jamaica and: Cuba are approximately 300 miles east and  north respectively.  The island is one of the very  few left in an almost unspoiled  atmosphere. Commercialization,  luckily, hasn't ruined the age old  castle, gun emplacements, nor  the natives and their way of life..v  The population is made up of approximately 1,500 Africans, 1,500  Europeans, 5,000 mixed races  and 85 Asiatics.  The islands were first discovered and inhabited by the Ara-  wak Indians from Central Am-,  erica early in the 1400s. These  Indians followed an endless  stream of turtle migrating east  off the Central American coast.  Earthquakes drove the Arawaks  to Jamaica. Columbus found the  Islands in 1503 and called them  Tortugas (Turtle) Islands. From  that date many ships stopped at  the Islands for fresh water and  fresh turtle meat.  Serious colonization began in  1610 when a group of Spaniards  fleeing the Inquisition, founded a  colony on the South Coast. As  time went by many famous pirates made the. islands their centre of activity. Such men as pirate Henry Morgan arrived in 1662  with 84 ships. Dutch, British and  Scottish' seamen followed.  In 1846 a British Royal fleet  of 10 vessels (in charge of an  admiral because a prince was  on board) struck the reef off  East End in bad weather and  sank. The hulls jf these ships  can be clearly����� seen today, Thd  famous Blackboard, came to the  WOOD HARVEST  British Columbia's wood harvest, which last year reached a  record total of nearly one-and-  a-half billion cubic feet, showed  an increase of 12.6 percent for  the first two months of 1964,  the British Columbia Forest Service  announced  this   week.  The increase or decrease in  the year's total by "forest districts is Prince George, Up 38.9  percent; Kamloops up 17.6 percent; Nelson up 6 percent; Prince  Rupert (Interior) up 32.9 percent; Prince Rupert (Coast)  down 16.1 percent, and Vancouver down 1.3 percent.  islands about 1717.  Much of the way the natives  live today is fhe same as it has  been for 200 years. In 1953 a government air strip was built making "the islands available to outside visitors. Rainfall is the only  source'of potable water and this  is collected in cisterns and saved. Swampy areas are prevalent  but the water :'s brackish and  only good for some types of vegetation.   - ���".  The highest "mountain" on the,  island is 60 feet above sea level,  the average height of land being  28 feet. The beaches are magnificent. The one in front of :'he hotel is seven miles long of clean  white sand and crystal clear water with a temperature of 80 degrees. It' goes without saying  that swimming and water .sports  are a must almost all day 'on^  or until the sunburn gets too red!  The whole area is a beachcomber's and skin diver's paradise.  There are coral gardens everywhere and along the shores,  shells by the ton.  Anyone wishing to escape from  the rain or cold in our off season  will find this place ideal. There  is no TV, no radio, occasional  mails and an occasional, paper  from Miami. Accommodation and  meals are excellent arid dress  and way of life for the tourist is  very informal.  The return flight left in the  morning stopping at New Orleans overnight, where they took  in some of the night spots in the  famous French Quarter.  From New Orleans they flew  direct to Vancouver the next  morning and were able to see  such cities as Dallas, Oklahoma  City, Denver Ogden, Utah; Boise  Idaho and others.  The Sunshine Coast is still the  best place to live but for a good  change when you want plenty of  sunshine, different people,  change of pace, that's the, place  to see, they said on their return.

Pete has.., been in ill health for \  ���- some time, _ but his day . was  brightened by tokens of remem-  ' brance from all his widely scattered family. From Alberni came  his daughter Mrs. Aline Dever- -  eux -with husband Tom. A long  telegram from son Roland in  Neva Scotia brought Pete poig:  riant memories of his native province. There were telephone calls  from all his children, including  son Merrill in Prince Rupert, Evan *MacDougall in Boston Bar  and Lloyd MacDougall in London, England.  Many friends called to convey  greetings to Charles Tinkley on  his /82nd  birthday   on   April  16.  Charles, who has already enjoyed 22 years of retirement, works  in his garden for seven;or eight,  -'hours a "day. He takes an afternoon siesta grudgingly and -only  with   pressure, from   the   distaff  side  of  the  family,   considering  it a terrible waste of time.  He  thinks afternoon  siestas are  all  very well for old folk. His guests  were  Mrs.   G.  B.  Simpson,  the  Harold Aliens, the Doug Foleys,  and Kathy, Mrs. H. R. Pearce,  the Bill Grundys and Don Ross.  Sharing the day's honors was the  Tirikleys' house guest, Mrs. Jerry Hynek of Cortes Island, whose; -  birthday falls on the; same day.  Last weekend, four generations  of the Harold Allen family posed  for photographs  in  their lovely/  garden aglow with numerous var-..  ieties   of  daffodils  and  narcissi:^  The   Allen's   guests   were   their/  eight-month-old      great-grandson'  Wayne jr., his parents, Mr. and  Mrs. Wayne Escott and his grand  mother, Mrs. Steve Hawirko, all,  of North Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Macey of  Welcome Beach flew to San Diego this week by United Airlines.  Mr. Macey will be the only Can-  adien representative attending a  convention of the Western Association of Food Chains at Coron-  ado. Until, their return, Mr.  George Oxby will be staying at  the Macey home.  Mr. and Mrs/ Bert James spent  the weekend at Cedar Springs.  This will be the last trip to their  cottage for a while as they, leave  for a holiday in England on May  8. They, will visit Barnsley in  Yorkshire -and tour the s6uth of  England. Mr. James was born  in Blackpool, but this will be  Mrs. James' first trip to England. Mrs. Jim Rhoades of Frances Avenue is already in England  visiting her mother in Brighton,  Sussex. :  The Bill Pallants who have a  summer, cottage near the Ed Gur-  ran property, will leave for Europe next week for a holiday in  London and Paris.

(By LES PETERSON)  (Copyright)  ARTICLE 15  Throughout life, an' individual,  particularly if of noble birth,  witnessed and took part in a  series of ceremonies and "rituals.  Among the Sechelts,, virtually all  important ceremonies took place  during the fall arid winter sacred  ��� season, when foods, gathered  during the summer, could be  drawn on.  ' One of the' most significant of  these ceremonies was the winter  dance festival. An individual  qualified to take, part in this  ceremony began by fasting, for  eight days. Following the fast,  he took a special bath, the  TSOH' - LOH - MAT - SOHT, to  cleanse him of any possible  detriment to success in the ritual.  A conclave of reputable nobility decided in ��� advance ofl the  ceremony who were to be chosen  for initiation during the evening.  At an appropriate climax to the  singing, all arms would outstretch toward the designated  individual, to whom this honor  came as a'surprise; .since only  a few of those 'qualified were  chosen at any one ceremony.  Under impetus of the chanting,  and of forces we, cannot know  of, the selected novitiate danced  until  he,  or< she, dropped'from  .' exhaustion.  During the ritual, the singers  ranged arounrf the sides of the  huge     SAUGH-WAH'-MAIN,     or  " dance-hall,' the walls of which  were ornately decorated with  convention "designs,-- would give  to the dancer, who had entered  a state'of trance, and who per-;  formed,unaware of his surroundings, the power of some creature  to his.       ��� i  Simultaneously, ' he began' to  sing. ��� The song, called by the  Sechelts SAY-EW'-UHN, came  forth ��� spontaneously from the  dancer; his own inspired composition, and his indication of  the fact that he was acquiring  spirit power.  Upon his awakening from the  sleep that followed the uance,  he would be told cf th's power,  or spirit: his AY-YIHM'-UHSS.  "KUH-NUHK'-WAHSS-AY-YH": 7'-  UHSS;" You got the power.

It.seems that a" white  man, well known to have scoffed at the idea of guardian spirit  power, nevertheless attended  the ceremony out of curiosity:  At an appropriate moment ,of  suspense, all attention was sud-  . denly rivetted at r the doubter.  Powerless' to prevent himself  from doing so, the selected  novice leapt to his feet and danced until he fell exhausted. When  he awakened, he was quite convinced so the story goes, that  he had guardian spirit power.   '  The   acquisition    of   guardian-  spirit power by females among  the   Sechelts -was  quite  unusual  phenomenon;     throughout    most  of the area within which it play-  rr* a s'cr":":cant role in aboriginal  1 "e, it remained an attribute of  the male sex only.

PARTS TO WEAR OUT  ��0 FILTERS TO REPLACE  ELECTRICITY HEATS WITHOUT WASTE  Electric heating is 100% efficient. No heat is lost in combustion, and none up the chimney, either -  because no chimney is needed. All the electrical energy you pay for is converted into usable heat. -  To take full advantage of this saving, B.C. Hydro recommends that homes with aU-electric heating  should be insulated to standards approved by the electric heating industry. This extra investment ill  insulation allows you to install heating units of lower capacity - so you save bn equipment  costs-AND IT ALSO CUTS YOUR HEATING COSTS BY AS MUCH AS 25%. The additional  initial cost of installing-electric heating with proper insulation js re-paid over and over agaia  in operating savings and extra comfort.  ELECTRIC HEATING IS SIMPLE TO INSTALL  No furnace, fuel tank, ductwork, pipes or chimney are needed with electric heating. It is simple  to install in both new and existing homes. If you are adding rooms to your home, or your     .       .   r  home is not now properly heated, it is probably easier and, less expensive to install supplementary  electric beating than to extend your present heating system.  NO ANNUAL MAINTENANCE COSTS  Modem electric heating equipment needs no annual servicing or parts contract. It is wonderfully  carefree. There are no rotating parts to wear out, no filters to replace, no cleaning or adjustments to. >  make. Properly installed electric equipment can last the lifetime of the home with few - if any -repairs^.  DIAL FOR COMFORT���AND ECONOMY:  Electric heating incompletely automatic. All you do is turn the dial of a thermostat - and with t  electric heating you can have a thermostat in every room. This not only allows you to choose the  exact temperature you want IN EACH ROOM, but saves heat too -particularly in the  autumn and spring. Budget billing is also available to make thrifty electric heating even more  convenient for. you. to enjoy.  CLEAN, QUIET AND HEALTHFUL  Electric ,heat is gentle and constant. There are no cold spots or uncomfortable blasts of hot air.  You live in a healthful atmosphere - and quiet, too, because electric heating has no moving  parts to vibrate and make noise. Clean? Next to sunshine, it's the cleanest heat in the world, ,  There's no fuel to burn so it can't create soot or dirt. You save on housework-and  decorating and cleaning bills, too.:     ; :      .< >  MORE SPAMF^  There are many types of'electric-heating equipment. Panel, heaters that mount flush info the   '  '< wall or ceiling. ...baseboard units that fit snugly along the wall... electric heating cables that are  concealed inside the ceiling or floor. These arid other types are all designed to save valuable  floor space and give you greater flexibility in furniture arrangement and room planning. Electric heating  also saves space in your basement because no furnace room, fuel storage area, chimney  or ductwork are needed., ,v ':���'."

The  first was established in 1921 in  Saanich and t>y'1946 there were  six such health units in' the pror  vince. They were administered  by local health committees aided  by grants from the provincial  government.  In 1946 when tne department  of health and welfare was organized they came under us control and the boundaries of health  . units were then .changed to con-  - form with school district boundaries which had been established as ' a result of the ��� Cameron  report. -       .  At that time a, pattern of financing was established, design  ed to equalize , costs' of public  health services to communities.  Costs had varied considerably  particularly in areas of sparse  population. Under the new plan  the 4 provincial government financed costs through annual per  capita grants from school boards  for the service rendered and  with   some   help   from   national  We are proud to have had the  opportunity of taking part in  the progress so evident on the  Sunshine Coast area  Completion of the building of the  Public Health Centre by our  company is another  example of this  progress  health grants as well.' ;;  Changes . in administration  gave the local public health personnel the status of civil servants with the, usual benefits  civil servants enjoy- This setup  also allowed -the despatch of  necessary help where an emergency arose such as the Fraser  River valley flood. ���    ���  ���. The riiew; organization; also  aided in-the formation of/a full  time qualified personnel and assisted in; the yrapid;expansion!  of public health services. In  March 1959 the department of  health and welfare was replaced  by the department of health services; and, hospital .insurance  with; three branches, health,  mental health and the B.C. hos  pital insurance service.  Under- the Health act, 1960 a  local government in any organized area is also the "local board  of health and has the power to  appoint a medical officer. The  act also enables municipalities  to. obtain the services of'a health  unit. In unorganized area a  Union board is. set up .and failing this the "gbvernmeht agent  or the RCMP hs the local board  '���of health):������ f' fP*������,_ yy^P-���;';;���'������'  .;, The act also enables municipalities and sqhbol board to obtain the services of a health  unit and under the Public Schools  act each school board is required to provide all health services  to all schools in their district.  Health units range frbih several p hundred   square miles  to  several thousand, with populations ranging from 25,000 to 100,-  000 and each health office has  a main office and branch offices. The staff consists of a  director who is a qualified physician with' special training in  public health; public health  nurses, sanitary inspectors,  clerks, health unit aides, weekend relief nurses, practical  nurses, .regional dental assistants, dentalp assistants and in  some, dental clerks.  The pubhc Health nurses are  registered nurses-who operate  under a supervisor. The sanitary  inspector inspects food handling  establishments and other places  involved in the health of the  \ community . including schools  and summer camps.  P H N vital member of team  Generial Contractor, 3386 Victoria Drive, Vancouver:  The r: public ^health nurse is a  \utal; number ;^ public  health" teamJ^Sh��; is a skilled  nurse j- health teacher, and a respected figure in the 'community.  Whereas^the duties of- the hospital nurse see emphasis placed;  on care 0f: ;the slck7 the public  health nurse concentrates on the  promotion of-health, prevention  of disease, and rehabilitation of  those recovering from sickness  or accident;"She must be able to  accept direction, but at the same  time know how to Use her initiative) with ; a? flexible approach  to.the performance of her many.  and varied tasks.  Challenges to her skill, training, and character must be met  each 'day, and iri overcoming "  these she derives a lasting sense  of personal achievement. As recompense for her lengthier  training period* and greater responsibilities, the public health  nurse enjoys a proportionately  higher salary range than the  staff hospital nurse. V  With the doctor arid the sani  tary inspector, the public: health  nurse holds a key position in the  local health unit.: She makes  visits to the home arid the school,  organizes and,: participates in  child :health conferences, special  clinics, jand^grbupV instruction.  She is a consultant and guide on  general health and health education and1 works with other agen-'  cies towards rehabilitation, of  people who have been crippled  by disease or accident. She is  a vital link between the hospital,  doctor, and home. With other  commuriityvgroups she is an ac-';.  tive participant? in any plan to  promote the people's health.  When mother and baby leave  hospital, the public health nurse  visits them in the home, and  gives guidance and practical  demonstrations on the infant's  care. This help continues as the  mother brings the baby and preschool child to child health conferences, where specific immunizations are available against  communicable disease. Here also, the nurse, with her expert  training, can counsel parents on  problems of development,  help-  I  ing them prepare for the many  changes as the child grows.  Working with the teacher and  the medical health officer, she  visits the school, where she assists in the screening for medical  examination of those children  with physical or emotional conditions requiring attention, and  in programs of immunization  against communicable disease.  She acts as health adviser to  the teachers, and follows up spe-  cial problems by a talk with the  parents. Her interest in the students' health standards continues  into high school, with special at-  ments detrimental to scholastic  merits detrimental to scolastic  progress  and future well-being.  She is in the forefront of the  battle to control venereal disease, tuberculosis, and other  communicable disease. She organizes and conducts immunization clinics, assists patient and  family by helping them follow  medical advice, and, takes an >  active part in tracing contacts  for examination and treatment.  area's Gongratulations on the  opening of the new Health Centre  by Hon.
