Mayor Larry Labonte informed members of council  Tuesday that it afforded him  8 the greatest of pleasure to announce that construction is  now officially underway on the  new home of the Elphfia-stone  Pioneer Museum to be located  on,the south end of Holland  Park. It is anticipated the  completion date for the construction project will toe 'June  21, with occupancy' effected by  June 30.  SThe Museum Society in their  nelw building will now enjoy  an  additional 400 square feet  of valuable useable space within which will he contained an  office permitting the group to  set up  a Mimicipal Archives  and    Resource   Centre   alonjg  with the new Museum. He was  extremely   pleased \vith   this  move as he has long felt that  the local" museum has not received   the   recognition   it   so  richly deserves due to its almost hidden location.  "I am sure that their new*  location will permit easier access for our* senior citizens,  and asYthe building location  will now be more prominently  on display it will certainly receive more attention from our  local residents. When it is officially opened I would urge  every citizen of this area to,  make the effort of touring our  museum and enjoying the excellent worfc the Museum Society have accomplished in  setting up one of the finest  collections of memorabilia on  the west coast.  ���" " St. Mary's Hospital at Se-  : c-ielt how has a landing pad  for helicopters just behind the  hospital for , emergency cases  and improvements are planned  . for the emergency, and operating . rooms which "will f acilr  itate   day   to   day   operations,  Gordoni W. Hall, "chairman of  the- hospital expansion and  property committee, informed  the annual meeting of St.  Mary's Hospital society Wednesday night of last week in  Sechelt's old Legion hall.  There were close to 40 members present.  The financial statement  that the excess of spending  over revenue was reduced1  from $1!1��893 in 1972 to $3,493  in 1973. Total revenue reached $1,092,330 with salaries, and  wages amounting to $831,009  absorbing the biggest part of  income.  The meeting was under .the  chairmanship of Eric Hensch.  Mrs. Ada Daiwe urged the so-  , ciety to consider revising, its  bylaws. She believed the- by-laws had not been checked  since they were first issued  back in the late 1960_. Mr.  Hensch agreed that some^a-  '"metidment would! be necessary.  :^i"Changeg>.in'..ihe/:h_^^^w4  Gordon Hall taking over the  vice-presidency replacing  Frank West and Warren McKibbin replacing F.H.

Retirements^ included Harvey  Huibhs,. J.R. McSavaney arid J.  Hall.*  The  medical staff offers  16  doctors,    plus    10   consultants.  and three dentists.  Mr. Hall in commenting on  the hospital grounds said the  first thing that strikes the eye  is the vast improvement to the  exterior of the hospital namely  the grounds. Landscaping. and.  flower beds now attractively  line paved areas. This work  was done with a LIP grant  plus the generous donation of  shrubs and plants. This change  for the better has been of  great pleasure to both patients  arid  staff.  The Torginal floors have been  redone. This was a much needed job and major undertaking  causing many inconveniences  to the staff during its application. There have also, been  many improvements which  have added to the effective-v  ness of the work of the hospital staff, adequate storage  rooms, (workshops.  Financing of the chlorina-  tion of hospital effluent is  still in the discussion stage  with the Sechelt Indian I Band  Council which operates the  system.

Good Friday and Easter!
Whatever one's religious faith, or lack of it, Good
Friday, the most solemn day in the Christian calendar,
has something to say to the thoughtful.
At a time when the word love turns up on buttons,
on car bumper slogans, and slops out of pop songs as if
it were the froth on a glass of beer, Good Friday impels
us to turn from the erstaz variety and look, however
briefly, at the real thing.
When Lord Donald Soper of Hyde Park and London
City Mission fame visited Canada he described his work
with indigent men. "There's nothing glamorous about
it," he said. "When you're washing old men's feet, you're
aware that they're ugly and that they smell. You don't
do it for a good feeling. You do it because it has to be
done and you're committed to making yourself available
when you see a need."
That's what love of the genuine variety is all about.
Someone has written "Easter is like a great bell
ringing," sounding the notes of renewal and joy and
hope. For the Christian world, this, the most important
of its festivals, centres around the Resurrection, the conviction that Jesus was the visible expressionin time of
the eternally valid, and that death could not hold him.
Such belief is not easy in 1974. The media inundate
us daily with the world's load of despair; we specalize
in the non-hero, the sick joke, the cynical judgment.
. Easter calls us to listen and to look again.
It is a time to resift priorities, to recall that the enduring treasures of the eras behind us were left not by
adventurous dictators and massive power structures, but
by artists, singers and sages. It is1 time to grasp the assurance that personal integrity is the keystone of genuine community.
A name to remember
Y    ■ '
At last week's annual meeting of St. Mary's Hospital
association an event occurred which may have been
passed unnoticed by some people. It concerned the change
in names of members of the association board., One of r
those names was that of Harvey Hubbs. He has'decided'
to drop out of hospital affairs.
Harvey's name has cropped up many, many times
in the 15 years or more in which hospital matters have
been a strong public issue. Perhaps you recall 15 years
ago at a big meeting in Sechelt's Legion Hall when Harvey -was chosen chairman of the committee to organize a
new St. Mary's Hospital.
It was he who did most of the spade work to get the
pubic interested. The opposition aroused in Pender Harbour helped him somewhat when the public objected to
making the journey to Pender Harbour for hospitalization. Perhaps one can recall the bitter tirades produced
by some Pender Harbourites.
, However Mr. Hubbs worked on valiantly and obtained the heaviest vote ever recorded on the Sunshine Coast,
1,477 in favor to 205 against a hospital. Then the money
vote to build was 1,777 in favor and 205 against. The vote
was reward for his efforts. In 1965 he was chosen as president of the board of trustees, a further honor.
Since then he has filled a good many posts in connection with St. Mary's Hospital and continued to work
on behalf of the community in pressing for improvements
of the type the area could afford.
Perhaps some day the history of Harvey Hubbs' association with St. Mary's Hospital will be written. It
should be. There is no other man on the Sunshine Coast
today who deserves such an honor.

shop cart service, hairdressing
service, haby photo service,

iatrics (program, library cart,
flower service, and transportation, service for in-patients arid
for out-patients.
The Volunteers gave 3,683
hours of their time in the f orc-
named services. They also
gave many unrecorded hours
towards promoting patient
comfort through making
wheelchair cushions, afghans,
bibs, etc., and remodelling
clothes for the patients in the
Extended care unit of the hospital. Equipment, too, was provided for the Extended. Care
unit and included an Instama-
tic camera, a slide projector
and screen, sewing machine,
(coffee maker, band instruments, games, and material
for projects.

spend 3,667 hours at the Hospital in 1973. The staff at St.
Mary's are a pleasure to work
With at all times. Their attitude encourages the ladies to
feel that in their way they are
helping to make the patient's
day in the hospital a happier
one, the In-Service volunteer.}
reported, Mrs. Peggy Connor
chairman.
Volunteers take a cart from
the gift shop around the wards
for the convenience of the patients: v
Red smocks are seen on the

and handiciialfts five days a
week. Some stay to help feed
the patients. Mrs. Mary Redman organizes activities and
assists with the rhythm band.
Hairdressers, guided by Mrs.

day and Thursday. This year
they purchased double equipment so they can work both
floors the same day. This has
proved, beneficial to both patients and volunteers.
New parents may have a
picture of their new offspring

A phone call brings a volunteer photographer to the hospital to record this important
event. Mrs. Rosa Swan is chair
man.
In   Physiotherapy   a   volunteer  assists when needed;  for
example,     bringing     patients   '
down,   to    the    Physiotherapy
room.  Mrs.  Faye Lewis looks
after this.
Transportation has been pro
vided to take physio patients
to and from the hospital. Patients are taken to the dentist
or out for an evening's entertainment such as the Legion
when the Sechelt branch hosts
them for a fun time, or to the
village for shopping.
Magazines and library books
are taken care of by Mrs. Ada
Dawe.
Parties are held for Extend^

this year. Volunteer chairmen
from each auxiliary take turns :
hosting the parties.
As the need arises, volunteers will be play ladies for
the Pediatric Ward. Mrs. Ina
Grafe is in charge of this department.
Volunteers working with
their chairmen Mrs. Eivelyw
Ashton and Mrs. Betty Shaw
refreshed flower bouquets and
watered plants every Monday
and Thursday in patients'
rooms.
Then there are other times
when volunteers are happy to
be called upon for help. They
decorate trees, give special attention to an extra lonely pa
tient, go on shopping trips,'
and write letters. This year
there were only a couple off
junior    volunteers,    but    they
were greatly appreciated as
they Y helped $Q wheel chair
patients r-'ou^ide on the good
days. *    * '  '••  4

Mrs. Dykes spring doll collection this season, 25 in number, will be shipped to the  children of Taiwan. So popular are these unique playthings  among the youngsters that  every doll is spoken for long  before being placed on sale.  Each one of Mrs. Dyke's  dolls, bears a distinguishing  tag.

The prices  range from 25 cents to $8. Her  earlier dolls were knitted from ,  odd pieces of unravelled wool  and sugar bags given her by  friends. Now Mrs. Dykes favors the more colorful and pliable modern wools.  A native of Liverpool, Mrs.  Dykes moved to New Zealand  in 1911, where the climate in  spots is not unlike British Columbia. She returned to Liverpool iri 1965 on a long deferred  visit home, and accompanied  Nancy and another daughter  to  Canada  several years ago'.  Here she enjoys life taken  up with sewing and knitting in  the off seasons and revels in  her garden in the summer.  As for being lonely, she just  hasn't the time or disposition  of feeling sorry for herself.  Her philosophy from the writings of Ella Wheeler Wilcox  is 'Don't look for the flaws as  you go through life and. even  if you find them, 'tis wise'and  kind to overlook such failings,  ^seeking only the, true virtues  "hehirid them.'

Letters to Editor  Editor:  The       Vocational  Counselling Service for British Columbia is an organization which has been giving  service for 26 years and because of its' non-profit nature,  it is being subsidized by annual grants from the UniteiJ  Way and the provincial government.  We are particularly concerned with the need for vocational counselling for older adolescents who have left school  or for young adiults who are  having difficulty in deciding  about their future careers. We  have long been aware of the  dilemma parents have in helping their children get established in suitable careers and  this information should do  much to ease the problem for  them.  We are having an increasing  number' of people come to us  from communities at some distance from Vancouver. What  ments well ahead of time, then  they do is to make appoint-  plan to stay in Vancouver at  least two nights, usually Sunday and Monday night. This  allows them to get a good rest  before the interviewing > and  testing sessions on Monday  and Tuesday. Arrangements  for the interpretive interview  can be made when testing is  completed and the report can  usually be mailed out to the  client prior to this post-test  interview. By this means people from many parts of British ; Columbia, Alberta, and  even North Western United  States have been able to arrange to receive valid and effective vocational guidance.  ���N.L. Vaness, Executive Director.  Bowling buffs  quite numerous  Bowling buffs visiting British Columbia are sure of a  hundred thousand welcomes  any time of the year. Thi/s  sociable activity is one of  the favourite sports in this  part of Canada's holidayland,  with more than 100,000 registered bowlers.  Of the 100,000 registered  bowlers, some 92,000 are five-  pinners. Combined with ten-  pinners, they do their thing  in 108 bowling centres located  throughout the province. Overall, there are more than two  million bowlers in "Canada.  Almost every part of British Columbia has bowling programs and centres, and on the  drawing hoards are new cen-  tres scheduled for Port Hardlyi,  100 Mile House, and Clearwater.

We have  streamlined the flow of statistical data through new forms  and method.., improved our  cash flow, and developed a  businesslike management of  accounts receivable. Our substantial deficit in 1972 was almost erased in 1973.  'Another major undertaking,  the building of additional  storage facilities, much needed  due to the expansion from 37'  to 71 beds, has been commenced and completed. Staff efficiency has increased because  we now have proper storage  !for medical and surgical supplies, pharmaceutical supplies,  ladies auxiliary equipment, x-  ray film, dietary supplies-  housekeeping, business office,  maintenance and engineering  supplies.  'The landscaping project has  been completed through the  Local Initiative Program at no  Cost to the hospital.  'Our labor relations climate  has substantially improved.

The  /first minutes of the game  found -Gibsons, under a lot of  pressure but they were able to  fight off a strong attack and  then began to take control.  Gibsons first tay was scored  by Brian Evans. The play  started with Gibsons winning  a set strum and the ball going out to the (backs and then  all the .way across the field  Where Evans took the ball into  the end zone. The convert Was  not  good.  Gibsons continued to press  and from a five yard scrum  they scored their second try-  The scrum completely out-  muscled the Trojans and pushed them back into their end  zone where Larry YKnowlipe  fell on the ball for the score.  John Crosby added the convert': '."���".'.''���"���  Before the first half ended  John 'Crosby added a penalty  Gibsons outside-centre Bob  Johnson opened the scoring in  the second half on good individual effort. He found himself surrounded by Trojans on  their ten yard line and 'broke  tour" tackles on his way into  the end zone. The convert was  wide.  Shortly after that Gibsons  scrum twon the ball on the Tro  jans il|5 yard line where Gary-  Gray made a nice move break  ing through the Trojan three  line. He then passed the ball  out to fullback Bob Crosby  who took the ball in for the  try. John Crosby then converted it. --'   ���  Bruce Gibson scored the  next try on a run similar to  Bob Johnson's. He took a pass  from Johnson and then broke  severed tackles on his way into the end zone.  Gibsons final try of the  game was the result of some  tremendous passing and running by the entire team. The  play started from mid-field'  where the ball was passed out  to the fullback joining the  three line and then all the way  back across the field where  Bob Emerson took a pass from  Gary FlumeTfelt as he crossed  the goal line, for the score.  John Crosby was successful on  the convert and the game ended with the final score Gibsons 33 and the Trojans 0.  This was Gibsons final  league game this year.

CAPRICORN Dec. 22 - Jan. 20  This coming week might be  mildly upsetting for Capricorn  but there is really" nothing  very serious to worry about.  Continue in a quiet way along  the path that you are following now.  AQUARIUS - Jan. 21 - Feb. 18  Your eyes may be closed to a  great opportunity on your  doorstep at the present time.  You are under favourable aspects IF you don't jump to  conclusions too quickly. Think!  PISCES - Feb. 19 - March 20  The only problem that astrology has for you now, is that  something may appear to be  'snatched away from you.'  This is not actually the case.  You will gain in many ways  from this apparent loss.  Copyright 1974 by Trent Varro  All rights reserved.  WEATHER SAYS DIRTY 30'S  According    to   the   weather,  records,   the   Lethbridge   area  of southern Alberta should be  right back   in   the  dirty  30's.  Agriculture     Canada    records  show an average annual precipitation  here of   14.9  inches  from   1934   to  ll|939,  but   only  13.1 inches per year since 1968.  The   1973   precipitation  of  9.6  inches is the  third lowest  in  72 years of (weather noting at  Lethbridge.   Lack  of  moisture  has not reduced crop production much because of agricultural   developments   like  large  tractors and cultivation equipment    which    help    preserve  moisture in  fallow. 12 Coast News, April 10, 1974.

USING WIND POWER  A team iii West Germany  has developed a double rotor  windmill mechanism with a  70 kikxwatt generating capacity, sufficient to supply five  families with electrical power,  including heat. An improved  model that will turn out 230  Kilowatts is in the blueprint  stage. Converting over 60%  of wind force into electrical  energy,  their device  can  ob-  ��� ' /  tain power from winds as-slow  as 4.5 miles per hour, but they  plan on developing a 90 % efficiency which means getting  energy from the slightest whis  per.of a;breeze. .      -  FOOD IN TREES  ''' ���   ." ���   ��� ^  A Washington State University Animal Nutritionist has  'been studying the possibility  of using /the cellulose in wood  for livestock feed. His research  has led to the conclusion that  logging and sawmill residue  can indeed be converted to  provide a source of carbohydrates for cattle and sheep. If  the livestock feeding industry  develops the idea, forest products could go far toward  feeding our cattle for the next  50 years and we -could then  count our forest blessings from  trees to t-ibone steak.
