Hospital costs examined  ���'Provincial ministers of health in conference in Ottawa Tuesday  and Wednesday have a near 1,000 page report to digest/prepared  by a federal Committee on the Cost of Health Services in Canada.  Earlier the federal minister of health, Hon. John fMunro, speaking in Saskatoon revealed the situation in the following words:  "In 1957 health services cost Canadians $1.7 .billion! By 1967  that total had risen to $3.7 billion. It takes only a projection of past  rates of increase and a little simple arithmetic to realize that these  costs could total $6.2 billion by 1972 ���and that is only a couple of  years away.  "Up to now, during the last five years particularly, the Canadian people have made abundantly clear their desire to obtain, and  pay for, satisfactory health facilities and the means of access to  those facilities.  "But how much longer will they pay for increases in cost which  do not appear to yield tangible improvements in service? How  much longer will it he before they reSbel and reject additional impositions for the costs of health services'?"  Later in his speech he said: "Take acute general hospitals for,  example. They are the most expensive of all by far to build and  operate because of their high consumption of technical facilities  and skilled manpower, which is so expensive first, to train and then  ,to pay.      '���'���'-.'���  "Across Canada, how many patients are in those expensive  beds right now, who really don't have to be there? People whose  needs could be served with equal /benefit in lower cost institutions,  or even at home? None of us knows the exact figure, 'but we all  know such a figure exists and that it is too high whatever it is."  This is an age-old argument and somehow somewhere along  the line of hospital experience this will become a necessary ohjec-  tive. -But ��� how much longer do we have to wait for governments.  to face this fact and do something about it. --  Later in his Saskatoon speecli the minister said that everyone  remembers the people the system serves ���-you,- me, eyeryibody.  But the system itself is people ��� the doctors, the nurses and the  unheralded men and women who perform many of the menial and  unpleasant tasks alike.. Their salaries, wages and ifees make up 70 !  percent of the costs of health services today"��� and we simply can  not do without most of them. Nor can we save money at their .expense."' ��� *  Dealing with the report which runs close to 1,000 pages, Hon.  Mr. Munro suggested that while many of the recommendations individually lend themselves to separate consideration by the governments concerned, or to closed door inter-government discussion ���  the overall picture which emerges deeply involves the public because changes in the system may well mean changes in the way  in which the public uses the system.  "Accordingly, although the reports were originally envisioned  as internal documents, my colleagues and I will he giving serious  consideration to making the full report public. If so, I hope the  public reads it ��� slings and arrows and all."  One can only hope something will come out of this conference  of health ministers which will be of benefit to taxpayers, hospital  services and the people involved in such services.  We are drifting slowly into an area involving the better use of  taxpayers' money. The implication is much more severe due to the  continued escalation of costs demanded in aU directions. There  may be some rubber in the dollar but its .breaking point is much,  much closer than you think. Restraint in this age of impulsive  action is an unpopular idea ��� but then many unpopular ideas are  those by which we live better lives.  Something wrong in Ont?  Business Press News reveals that the Ontario government has  committed itself to expensive pollution control measures. According to a report in Civic Administration, George Kerrv minister of  energy and resources .management, has announced approval of  tiwo major financial programs.   '",-���-  The first will assist small municipalities with sewage work  projects, whch exceed an average home charge of $120 a year, or  water work projects exceeding $100 per home. This program will  cost the province $3 million in 1971-72, and $12 million the following  year, even though the government will pay no more than 50% of  the total cost.  Ontario's second program will ensure that area projects for  sewage and water may be oversized for future devlopments, where  such oversizing is .beyond the needs of communities initially serviced. The province may contribute up to 15% of the total capital  cost of such works.  This is interesting to many people in British Columbia who are  wondering why so powerful a government as the Bennett government in B.C. is so impotent when it comes to facing critical issues.  We have the highest tax burden, greatest surpluses ��� and yet we  have schools, hospitals and municipal ventures such as sewers ���  long term victims of political see-saws. Ontario appears to be able  to do these things without the aid> of Social Credit. There must foe  somethng wrong in Ontario?

We like Rose Marie  Modern   governments   always  appear impelled to do what Canada  is  doing,  and it  seems   a^  shame somehow. Ottawa is re'*'  portedly   making   an   effort   to  shed  the impression  that  it  is  an idyllic,    picturesque,    rural  land.  A report tells  Canada to, -  rid the world; of the idea that*  Canada   is  the land   "of  Rose  Marie Chapdelaine, the landv of  ice and snow,  Mounties,  Eskimos, and not much else."    :   -  Surely, Canada should tell the  world that this "not much else"  is falset.But there is perhaps  one thing which Ottawa has not  grasned. This is that to so much  of the rest of the world, caught  up in all kinds of head-wearying   problems,    the   traditional  vision of Canada is a restful,  inviting one.  ���.,., The,, bigger .cities - grow, the  '^farther slums spreadrthe dirtier  streets become, the faster .traffic moves, the stuffier polluted  air gets,'the tenser, races grow,  the sweeter it is to rest in the  thought of a place, which, while  perhaps seeming a little old-  fashioned, is nonetheless all the.  nicer therefor.  It is easy to seem up-to-date.  AH a nation has to do is rush  around inadly, multiply its problems and brag a little. It is  much harder to seem orderly,  quiet, and fetching. Canada  succeeds in ��� doing this. Please,  don't try to disillusion us.  ���   Christian   Science   Monitor.

Today, with public  awareness of the problems of mental health and  with the spectacular development of new medicines to treiat mental disorders, people are no  longer afraid to consult a physician. They realize  that there is hope. Wc stock these new medicines  as soon as they are available for prescription  use.  Your doctor can phone us when you need a  medicine. We will constantly endeavor to keep  abreast of the expanding activities in the field  of pharmacy ��� in this era of great change. We  pledge at all times-to be in the position to offer the finest of pharmaceutical services.  KRUSE DRUG STORES LTD.  Sechelt  885-2238  Gibsons  886-2234  Rae W.

JekyH &Mr.Hydo" Arrival at Ouitb  BY  SEAN  DALY  ���   ���   ���.-������������"-������*   > v ������    v.7:,r-?;s7  Quito at night was black arid  drizzly as we..wound .through.its  dark cheerless alleyways, unheralded and unnoticed, ^friendless and with no place to stay.  For, unlike the grandiose  the great' French explorer-  surveyor in 1736 when the  entrance of: La Condamine,  whole city turned to welcome  him, our entrance created no  visible stir in the lives of the  slumbering Quito���ites.  The only soul who paid us  any heed, that heedful, we would  pay him, was ian inebriated  self-styled guide who assured  us he knew of many hotels that  [were just for lis. This he���': imparted with an alcohol slurred  Spanish so that, only by straining my eairs and brain was I  able to say "comprenclo".. y  David and I caught our bags  from the conductor who handed  them down from the roofrack  where they had mixed promiscuously with sacks of potatoes,  mailbags and trussed chickens.  Shouldering my pack and David grabbing his grip, we dubiously followed   the guide..  After asking at several run  down joints if they had espacio  for; us, he7 found a dirt cheap  hotel with vacancies. Being exhausted travellers in a strange  city, we; accepted and.paid bur  guide who grumbled it was inadequate. He had persistently  tried to interest lis in a tour on  the mofrbWv spouting names and  history of cathedrals we passed,  but we irritably shooed him  away and fell into bed (a cot  by any othe^ name would riot  be sp sweet).  ��������� Arising frorii our lumpy slumbers the next morning finding  -no toilet paper or newspaper in  in the dirty servicio, we decided  the firsit order of business 'was to  move from J3ur 75c/nite dive.  Soon after this firstmove to a  $1 (<US) hotel, my friend left oh  the train to (Guayaquil and that  afternoon things began to pick  up for me, like fish biting at  .  slack tide.  By daylight, ,of course,, sea-  sonless Quito was a. decidedly  -yrhore; attractive -city/ Riding out  to the Universidad Central I  could see the volcano- Pichincha;  which Alexander Von Humboldt  scaled, towering broodjingly  above me The university  spreads up the hillside towards  it. From the university, glinting in the afternoon sun, I could  see the white city buildings,  sprinkled with church spires, riding up_ and down on their  hilly site.  To place Quito in its broad  natural content. I quote from a  'letter to a friend: "As you can  see, I'm now in South Amer-  9,000 feet high, in the central  valley of the Andes, which is  rimmed to either side by tall  ica, just south of the equator,  volcanoes, some snow clad,  . some active, most inactive. Alexander Von Humboldt called it  the avenue of volcanoes, The  Andes here ��orm the spine of  the, country, with hot, humid  jungle to either side. Tomorrow  I will descend into that jungle on  the coastal side1, to Guayaquil  in the landrover�� of a UN geologist here, who is going into  the field for a month".  That free ride was one of the  fruits of my exploration -of the  university. Often 'that is the  way in a strange city���one. simply makes forays into the streets  and markets and universities  where people .are buying and  selling and studying, thereby exposing oneself 7to human contact. With a little luck,;. plus a  display of curiousity .and sympathy and a7 desire7 to learn  meetirigs come about, information is exchanged and relationship's are .'��� kindled, which, if  blown on with sufficient mu-  tu_jl    erithusiasMii    warm :^ into  ESKIMO PILOTS  TPilots flying, in Canadian arctic skies soon might toe startled  to hear the crackle of the Eskimo language oyer their via--  dio; receivers.':'.-:A contingent of  three Eskimo youths, what the  Federal Goverriinent^: hopes is  the^ vvaiiguara of liiorthern residents who will become aviators, have reported^ to ^ the Can-  adiah Forces 7^_irbase ait Bor-  der.; Ontario;4W- begin graining  as pilot's.''������'.-'������'>..  lasting fires of friendship.  ; Travelling, wherein, one realizes that stops will be short,  lends a certain edge or poignancy tp the newly established  relationship, and may thereby  intensify it through a combination of joy and sadness one  feeling opposirig yet complementing the other. The shortness   of  the  contact  makes   it  precious, to be savored both at  the tiriie and later in rone's  memory. But I've been digressing and what 1 say applies  more to the Latiriamericans I  met than the gringos. And; it  was mainly gringos or foreign-  .ers I met at the university.  After a tour of the geology  museum wherein' the curator  'enthusiastically     explained  the  minerals and fossils to me in  rapid espanol, (it took only, my  interest to start him off) and  sold me a1 geological map of  Ecuador, he introduced me to  the UN people downstairs.  These were a South African ge-  ochemist and a young Dutch  geologist, who. waridered jn with  a bottle of Vat 69! later. They  were working on the UN^s mineral project in Ecuador.  We exchanged experiences���I  of my recent exploits in the Arctic, helicoptering over the vast  silent mosquito ridden wilderness and he, the UN geologist,  burro-ing into the jungled Andean slopes by mule power,  both extending the search for  the elusive metals over the  yarigated face; of Mother  Earth. The project manager, he  informed me, a singularly tall,  robust ruddy faced Englishman,  required two mules��� one to  spell off the quickly spent one!  The young Dutchman drove  me to the UN headquarters,  where I met some of the mefal-  Coast News, Nov. 26, 1969.       3  searchers, including, the aforementioned skookum Englishman  he dwarfed the Ecuadorians or  they gigantieized him, depending on one's point of view,  there also I met Bernhard, the  German geologist. He offered  me a ride down into the coastal  jungles, to Guayaquil, Ecuador's  stiffling hot and) politically volatile"; seaport. It sounded like a  good offer and a day later I returned and accepted.  W.V A'A\SVA;  T 1  At MacMillan Bloedel, we try to give  trees the best possible start in life -  and the most careful upbringing. At  the same time, we're constantly striving for trees that will grow faster and  produce better quality wood.  From carefully selected parent  trees we gather thousands of conies  from which seed is obtained to raise  sturdy tWo-year seedlings. These are  planted by hand in logged areas where  natural re-seeding may take too long  or may not be satisfactory. Trees  planted this way, spaced and protected for maximum growth, will reach  maturity in fewer years.  Through intensive forest management we are increasing the yield of  wood per acre up to 40% more than  untended forests usually produce.  That means more wood products  for world markets and more jobs for  British Columbians.

This was . done rather than  sending Christmas cards local-  - ly, so that some -less fortunate  may better enjoy his or her  Christmas and possibly appreciate that Christ did not die in  vain after all. :   x  This small group has? been  growing each year so this letter is directed to any and all  who wish to contribute" in this  manner to ensure that more and  'more people will have a happier  and brighter Christmas as it  was intended..

Recreation Ibr Ladysmith senioiS  Post Office ChriSfil| hfiiiit  A  few  weeks  ago. the .Coast  News published the information  that Ladysmith area on Victoria  Island was organizing recreation  for senior citizens - and . at the  same time reported it .would follow up reports that were likely to  come .Here'is the7first report.  Ladysmith, through its Recreation Commission, is embarking on a-program to meet the,  social and recreational needs of  its senior citizens. Last Tuesday  the commisson invited senior citizens to a meeting in the United  Church Hall to learn about the  newly-organized program.  The senior citizens, on their  part, gave good support.to the  program when more than 50 of  them attended the meeting and  were welcomed by the commission's co-ordinator Mrs. Anne  Johnston.  The meeting was also the occasion for the re-establishment  of the Old Age Pensioners Organization in Ladysmith, and  Mrs. E. Tbacker, provincial director of the O.A.P.O. addressed  the gathering on its aims and objectives.  Mrs. Fisher led the gathering in a singsong and a bingo-  type game after which guests  enjoyed a tea hour povidedand  hosted by the Ladysmith Kinettes  On Friday afternoon the senior  citizens were guests of the Ladysmith Bowlarena proprietor  Peter Bryski for a' session of  bowling followed by coffee.  Ahead of them each Tuesday is  an imaginative and varied, program. The first Tuesday of each  month at the Health Unit the  O.A.P.A. will hold its meetings  and provide some form of en- ���',.*  tertainment. The other three  Tuesday's of the month, Mrs.  Johnston said, .would be enter  tainment. It will include bowling, cards, chess, checkers or  other games, and from time to  " time a mystery party which  could be a trip to a museum or  other points of interest-  Mrs. Johnston Said that excellent committees of transportation and hostesses have been  formed by Ladysmith residents  and groups to provide this facet  of service to senior citizens.  Under the heading Much Credit Due, Editor John McNaughton of the Ladysmith Cronicle  wxotey  Thanks to the efforts of the  Ladysmth Recreation Commission - the town now appears to  have an adequate program started for the older residents of the  community. In terms of recreation this has probably been the  most neglected group in the town  and the one to which we believe  the town has the greatest responsibility.  The   Native Daughters   have  shown an interest in older residents  for years,   remembering  them  on   their   birthdays   and  holding an annual tea at which  they can get together! More recently a women's group repre-  enting the various churches has  made   worthwhile   contribution,  but now   the   Recreation Commission has organized a regular  program which will give older  residents an opportunity to enjoy  a variety, of activities suited to  their abilites arid interests.  Many people will be involved "  in helping with the program, but  special credit goes to Mrs. Tom  Fisher who conducted a survey  which provided a basis for the .  program, and who continues to  be actively engaged in it, to Mrs.  Anne Johnston, recreation coordinator j who has devoted a lot  of time to bringing it about and  who even set pins at, the recent  bowing party.  We can think of nothing, that  will reflect more credit; on the  community or provide more satisfaction to its residents than  this effort to insure that older  residents have opportunities for  pleasant recreation- and social  intercourse in theirTyears; of retirement:  To assist customers in the pur-  chase of postage stamps, money  orders arid, other Christmas  mailing transactions^ full -post  office wicket service will be prdh  vided at all post offices for three7  consecutive Saturdays:: Dec. 6  Dec. 13 and Dec. 20. Letter carrier and parcel post delivery'  service will also be provided as  one complete delivery on two  .Saturdays:' Dec. 13 and Dec; 20.  '"������ This additional service will1 en  sure earlier delivery of Christmas mail and relieve t-heycbn-  gestion at the>post offices. Department officials estimate. - that  the extra service will cost approximately $350;000 per day in  overtime pay for the Letter  'Carriers. .. y.7y-y^\A  \ ~.-y    -\ ���' ���   .'���   " ���'������'���   "'������  COAST NEWS WANT ADS  DEADLINE, TUESDAY NOON  Phone 886-2622  Used furniture or what  have you :"_-,  ; '  WE BUY BEER  '   -'        BOTTLES  AL'S USED FURNITURE  Gibsons ���886-2812!

Pass-  more of Langdale .Elementary  school  reporting to the school  ? board at Thursday night's meeting revealed that school attendance has risen from 119 in 1965  with five teachers to 158 this  year with, five teachers, including the principal.  Grades for 1965 and 1966 were  from one to seven and from 1967  on from one to six. Auxiliary  personal included relief teachers  as required. ' -  It can be readily seen that  the 1969 enrolment figures have  increased, about 20 percent ov-  ' er 1968. The increase is mainly  due to a change of school boundary, which now allows the pu-  Jpils living east of Reed (Road  to -attend   Langdlale.   This,   to  'some extent, relieved the pressure oh Gibsons Elementary  school,   y ~  It is anticipated that enrolment   for   1970���71  will   be   as  Christmas  Here's a gift package that will be remembered long  after the Christmas season: a year's subscription to  Beautiful British Columbia magazine plus a full-color  1970 calendar-diary.

From the figures shown it is  obvious that a heavier load is  now being carried by the staff  than in previous years. Of the  26 pupils transferred to ��� Langdale from Gibsons Elementary  school, 15 were receiving special remedial reading instruction.  Altogether 18 pupils have,s so  far, been documented by ..'the  supervisor of "'"elementary i'n-?  struction as being in need of  remedial instruction, this is considered to be a minimum, as  there are a number of other  pupils with varying degrees of  learning problems. Mr. R.R.  Hanna district superintendent,  is aware of the situation and  further help for these pupils is  expected.  The board of school' trustees -  have been' far sighted in enlarging the school grounds over  the past two years, and it is expected that goal posts and backstops will be erected on the  grassed areas in the near future when the field is ready  for use by the pupils.  The grounds too, have been  much improved this year with  the covering of the dry playing  area with pea gravel. The staff  and pupils look forward to the  addition ofl {black top under  and around the covered play  area, which will greatly add  to the play and sports facilities  at the school.  Since the closing of the Port  Mellon Elementary school,  which amalgamated with Lang--  dale school in January, 1965,  the school equipment has been  built up to the point where It  can be stated that Langdale is  very well equipped for a school  of its size. j -      '  The film and film strip projector,   an   overhead  projector  and a small radio being constantly used. The addition in the  last two years of two tape recorders has- enhanced the teaching-learning situation. We are  now able to tape school'^ broadcasts and use these at" times  convenient to the teachers and  pupils.  The smaller cassette type tape  recorder being used! extensively in oral reading situations and  radio plays, giving.a more lifelike and interesting approach to  oral reading lessons. The cassette type recorder is put to  many other uses and it is hoped  that in time there will be one in  every classroom.  The school is fortunate to have  the Cave Southhampton Apparatus, which is popular with children of all ages at Langdale.  The new philosophy in methods  of problem solving approach to  gymnastics is practised. This  places the onus on the individual to develop his physical  talents in the best way possible  and does not force the more  uncoordinated- pupil ,jto. any  strain. It is,yfor-example, pleasurable to observe the grade one.'  class working on the apparatus  with such great enthusiasm.  The new report cards, approved by^ the school trustees  were introduced this term. Par- ;  ent-Teacher conferences being  held on November 12,1- and 14.  This was the most successful of  the Parent-Teacher conferences  ever held at Langdale School;  In previous years the greater  parent attendance was in the  primary grades, but this year we  had 91 percent in the primary  grades and 89 percent in the  intermediate. An everage of 90  percent a .tendance. No serious  criticism of the new report cards  was made; indeed, the majority of parents expressed favorable comments, the most being  that this method of reporting  was superior, giving a clearer  picture of the pupils perform-  , ance in various subjects, particularly in the many skills involved in language arts and  arithmetic.  The staff ���< at Langdale are  loyal and consistently hard working. They approach the school's  many problems dn a truly professional and businesslike manner and give unstdntingly of their  time and energy to the tasks  in which they are involved.  They are adaptable and prepared for innovation in an era  of change. Much has been said  Out out this ad for future use  the run  GIBSONS GOOD NEIGHBOR SERVICE  Need help? Call The FISH!
