Sechelt , Alderman Morgan  Thompson said after the meeting  attended by about 150 residents,  that council will likely issue a  proclamation which gives residents thirty days to file objections. If more than five percent of  the Sechelt residents object to the  project, the matter will then go to  a public referendum.  At Sunday's meeting, chaired  by Sechelt planner Doug Roy, a  panel of quest speakers presented  the many aspects of the project,  covering installation, costs, requirements for connection and  the method of, treatment best  suited to the area.  A study done last year estimated the cost of the sewers at  SI,225,000 and took into account  present inflationary trends. However, the survey engineer, Martin  Dayton of the engineering firm of  Dayton and Knight, said "If work  isn't started before the end of  next month, you can add on  another 15 to 20 percent." Dayton  described the treatment proposed  as an "activated sludge" plant  which uses air to speed the breakdown of waste materials by  bacteria. The settled, digested  waste materials will be taken  from the treatment plant at the  bottom of Wharf Road to a drying  plant, possibly at the ^sanitary  land fill site. The remaining liquid  effluent would then be pumped  offshore 1500 feet and then  diffused through holes in the pipe  into the sea, where the currents  would carry it away and further  dissolve the waste.  Jack Hamilton of the B.C. Pollution Control Board said the  method used would have to have  a nominal, if not negligible,  effect on the waters of Trail Bay.  A permit allowing the proposed  sewer to be installed will be  issued by the Pollution Control  Board within the next two weeks.  If anything, the offshore outfall  would improve existing conditions on the Sechelt waterfront.  A 1970 survey showed that the  shellfish along the foreshore contained a large number of toxic  substances which, though not  harmful to humans, could build  up and possibly injure those birds  or animals eating them. These  substances were caused by leakage from septic tanks around the  bay. The sewers would remove  this leakage.  Dr. Lang, director of the Garibaldi Coast Health Unit, said that  the Sechelt area must have sewers soon to allow more growth. He  said that an undetermined  number of building licences have  failed their percolation tests and  that a number of residential septic tanks had failed to work correctly due to crowding of their  drainage fields.  Sechelt Aid. Morgan Thompson gave an estimate of the costs  to the householders of how much  a sewer hook-up would cost. He  said that as the municipality is responsible only to run the sewer to  the property line, the residents  would have to pay to have a ditch  dug, have their septic tanks  pumped out and filled in and buy  the new pipe, it would cost approximately $500 for each hookup, but that in many cases the  cost would be lower. Aid. Thompson proposed that the Municipality buy the sewer pipe in bulk and  then sell it to the residents at cost  to save money and that whole  blocks be hooked up at the same  time to avoid having heavy equipment in the same place more than  once.  Thompson also said that residents could buy pipe at a price of  under $1 per foot and do their  own digging and trenching. He  said this would amount to a considerable saving to the resident.  The village will bring the sewer  trunk lines to the edge of the  property line.  A question and answer period  was held at the end of the meeting to clear up misunderstandings. The main concerns, apart  from the cost of the project, were  the depth of the pipes and the size  of the treatment plant. The pipes .  will vary in depth from a minimum of three to four feet below  the surface to more than ten feet  at the deepest. The system is to  be built in such a way as to allow a  maximum amount of gravity flow  to save money on pumping sta  tions. The treatment plant itself  will be approximately 50 feet  long, 20 feet wide and will be at  street level with the boulevard. A  small landfill project around the  plant will be necessary to accommodate it.  As it would be at least mid-1977  before any connections are made,  any new homes being built in the  specified area would have stand  ard septic tanks installed for the  interim period. Council is looking  into means of re-imbursement for  new home builders who are faced '  with this problem, as it will be  compulsory for all residents of the ���  specified area to be connected to :  the sewer.  Costs for the sewer hook-ups ;  will vary with the type of building ���  it serves. The standard  annual .  aired  charge for a single family dwelling would be $45. users fee,  frontage tax of 60 cents per foot  per year, plus a two mill tax of  assessed value for those homes  on the new system.  Residents outside of the specified area will not be affected by  any changes within. The federal  homeowners grant can be applied  against both the frontage tax and  the mill tax. Rates vary for businesses with specialized areas in  them, such as games rooms or a  dancing area, and special rates  apply to buildings with more than  one storey.  It is still undecided whether  Council will want payments made  in lump sums or as monthly payments to ease the burden for  those on a fixed income.  CPU contract  awaits signing  Disaster  plan a  priority  Although no contract has yet  been signed, an agreement between the Port Mellon local of the  Canadian Paperworkers Union  and Canadian Forest Products,  has been reached.  Ron McPhedran, CPU local  1119 president, said Sunday night  that fifteen out of 17 CPU locals  have accepted a settlement that  will give workers an 80 cents an  hour increase during the first year  and 75 cents during the second  year.  The Union struck Canadian  Forest Product's Port Mellon Mill  last July after asking for a contract that included $1.50 an hour  wage increase and a 37%A hour  work week. The present agreement was reached after the  former NDP government legislated striking workers back to  the job by means of Bill 146.  Unions and companies were given  until last Monday to reach an  agreement.  McPhedran said fourteen out of  the seventeen locals indicated  they wanted to sign the present  contract. The other three did not  want to sign because of internal  problems. One of those three has  since agreed to the contract.  In  the  meantime the   forest  companies stated they would not!  sign a contract with only four-;  teen of the seventeen unions in-;  volved. The Labor Relations  Board subsequently backed the  forest companies by saying that'  since the unions bargained as a!  unit they would have to accept or!  reject the contract as a unit.  McPhedran said the Port  Mellon local was one of the initial  17 that accepted the contract.  "We didn't want to," he said,  "but what else was there?" He  said the provincial government  would not allow another strike  and the federal government with  the wage guidelines indicated  that if the unions did succeed in  bargaining higher, the additional  increase would be chopped Off  anyway. ; ;  "Trade Unions are in for a  tough year, "McPhedran said. ��� .-  Besides the wage increase the  new contract includes improve*  ments for shift workers and an  improved pension plan. The contract also calls for a 12 cent cost of  living increase January 1,1977. V  McPhedran said he expects the*  contract to be signed shortly and  he anticipates no problem with'  federal government approval.  Committees named  Peter Black, left, and Robert Gore are two Elphinstone  students who like to horn in on things, especially basketball games. The duet provided crowd-stomping sound effects at last Saturday's game when^ Elphinstone Cougars  TOOTING FOR ELPHIE  hosted St. Thomas Moore. The basketball game ended on  a sour note when Cougars were narrowly defeated by a  score of 84 - 76.  One of the priorities for the  Sunshine Coast's new emergency  program co-ordinator will be to  establish a hospital disaster plan.  Art McPhee, who, recently replaced Don Pye as the co-ordinator, told the Sunshine Coast Regional Board last week a great  deal of work has to be done in the  area of emergency co-ordination  and that some important decisions concerning this matter will  have to be made by the board.  He said he was happy to see  several local policemen also involved in emergency training, and-  he asked police, fire departments,  and the hospital to work together  in the establishment of an emergency program.  McPhee said emergency planning is like insurance: nobody  likes to talk about using it, but it  has to be there.  Kinsmen need you for Mother's March  John McNevin, the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board's new  chairman, announced the names  of directors appointed to head the  various committees for the next  year. The new chairman at the  same time outlined a reorganization of committees which  will now fall under three major  categories.  The first major category is the  management committee which  "will be headed by McNevin himself. The finance committee, a  sub committee of the management committee will be headed  by Gibsons director Jim Metzler.  The second major committee  will be the public utilities committee to be headed by Director  Peter Hoemberg. This will be a  five member committee which  will include the sub-committees  of cemeteries, headed by Jim  Ironside, water, headed by Barry  Pearson, sewers, headed by  Morgan Thompson, and waste  disposal which does not yet have  a chairman. ' >  The third major committee is  the detailed planning committee  which will have the building committee as a sub-committee. Chairman of these committees have ndt  yet been named.  Jim Ironside was appointed to  represent the regional board Op  the Parks: and Recreation cSm-  mission. He was chairman of that  commission last year.  Other appointments, such as  Coast Garibaldi Union Board of  Health, Municipal Finance  Authority, and the hospital board  will be announced later.  In the meantime, the regional  board will hold a day long meeting Saturday January 31 f��  discuss board policies Md  bylaws.  Members of the Gibsons Kinsmen Club are getting ready for  the annual Mother's March, the  door to door campaign which supports the work of the Kinsmen  Rehabilitation Foundation of B.C.  The Mother's March takes place  from January 25 to 30 and is sponsored and directed by nearly 80  Kinsmen clubs throughout this  province.  This year's campaign will be  kicked off by a Schmockey game  Sunday January 25 at the Pacific  Coliseum starting at 2 p,.m.  Celebrity Jim Baccus (Mr.  McGoo) will be present and wor,d  is out that Gibsons Alderman"  Kurt Hoehne will be on board his  chariot pulled by the Gibsons  Kinsmen.  Other features of the Schmock  ey night will be a game between  the B.C. Lions and the All-Star  wrestlers and" a game between  Vancouver broadcasters and politicians. Tickets are availabe at the  door, from the Gibsons Kinsmen  Club, or from Western Drugs in  Gibsons. The admission is a $1.50  per person.  The mothers March began in  1944 when a polio epidemic left a  number of disabled victims in its  wake. This alerted Vancouver  Kinsmen to the desperate need to  provide equipment and facilities  for rehabilitation work. One of  these was the "Mothers' March  on Polio." Later, the B.C. Polio  Foundation was formed and the  "Mothers' March" became an  annual event to support the work  of the Foundation.  Being a mother is most definitely not a qualification for volunteering your time in making the  annual campaign a success���rthe  only qualification is the ability to  give some time to organizing a  group of volunteers or to pushing  a few doorbells or knocking on a  few doors���usually in your own  neighbourhood. The Kinsmen  Mothers' March work force is  made up of men, women, students, and many members of service organizations and auxiliaries  who believe that the work of the  Kinsmen  Rehabilitation   Found  ation must continue in B.C.  Each of the nearly 80 Kinsmen  Clubs in B.C. (with a total  membership of over 2,000 young  men) undertake the support of the  Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation as part of their commitment  to seeing that their district project  has the funds to continue working  with the disabled wherever they  may live in B.C. For the most part  each Kinsmen Club undertakes to  provide the leadership, organization and man-hours required to  insure the January Mothers'  March campaign is a success.  (Continued on Page 8)  A voice from the crowd  A familiar voice talking in the  more familiar metaphorical style  of speech was heard in the  board room of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District last  week, only the voice came from  a different part of the room.  Or, to put it another way, old  politicians never die, they just  become part of the audience.  Seated in the audience, Norm  Watson, former Regional Board  director and Sechelt Alderman,  told the Regional Board during a  public question period at last  Thursday's board meeting that  copies of minutes of the various  meetings should be available (to  the audience so that members of  the public know what directors  are talking about.  Noting that the committee  recommendations were adopt^i  en masse, Watson said, "no one  has a clue who did what tx>  whom." He said that there was  no use for the public to attend/  the Regional Board meetings  unless they knew what was gQr  ing on.  The recommendation made  by Mr. Watson, member of the  public, will be considered by the  Regional Board's planning  committee.  Manpower assistance  Local unemployment high  There are 700 people looking  for work on the Sunshine Coast.  That's the figure given by Jack  Ross,. Manpower official who  staffs the Manpower office presently located in Sechelt. Besides  keeping that office open for two  days every two weeks, Ross is also conducting a study to find out  just what kind of future services  are required in this area. The results of his study will indicate  if a permanent, Manpower office  is required and where it will be  located.  The biggest problem in this  area now, according to Ross, is  that the Sunshine Coast has a lot  of unskilled people looking for  work but no jobs to accommodate  them. It is for that reason that the  Manpower official is appealing to  all employers on the Sunshine  Coast to take part in the Canada  Manpower Industrial Training  Program.  Through this program Canada  Manpower will assist an employer  in paying part of a trainee's  wages. Depending on the needs  of a trainee and the particular  training situation, the Manpower  share of the wages daring the instructional period may vary from  40 to 85 percent of the total wages  paid. For persons who were unemployed immediately prior to  the training program or whose  employment may be threatened  because of technological or economic change, Canada Manpower  may authorize a share of up to 60  percent of the wages.  The maximum share for each  trainee in full time training will  be no higher than $143 per week.  In other words, the Manpower  share is usually not higher than  the unemployment insurance  benefits that a person would be  receiving.  The philosophy behind the  training program, of course, is  to give unskilled people a skill  which will make them more employable. The whole program is  based on a human element says  Ross. "It is up to us to see that a  person has a sincere desire to  take the training program. Both  the counsellor and the person  must come to the agreement that  the program would be beneficial to that person and this country."  From the unskilled individual's  viewpoint, then, that person  acquires a job and a skill. Manpower makes sure the skills  acquired are transferable meaning the person involved could go  anywhere to get a job in a partic  ular field. From Manpower's  point of view, and the Canadian  government's the trainee will be  contributing to the gross national  product rather then drawing on  government funds through unemployment insurance or welfare.  "It's quite a substantial saving  over a year," says Ross, "even  if the initial cost is between  $3,000 and $4,000.  And the program nourishes  human dignity, because as Ross  says, not too many people are in  a good mental state sitting at  home and doing nothing.  (Continued on Page 5)  >:������  <&i&&  We've never seen a live hockey game before, said Rose  and Bob Stephens of Gibsons last week but that was all  changed over the weekend. The Roses are shown here  with Gibsons Elementary school principal Dave Rem pie,  left, after receiving tickets to two Canuct hockey games,  plus accommodations, plus $50 spending money.  The prize resulted from a recent raffle sponsored by the  school to raise money for the grade seven field trip.  Another hockey raffle will be held in March.  Shakemill %  may rebuild  The regional board has given  the go-ahead to reconstruction ori\  the shakemill in Wilson Creek  that was recently destroyed by  fire. The board endorsed theref  construction of the mill by giving;  second reading last week to * a-  special bylaw. However, certain!  restrictions effected through ...i]  land use contract will not allocw;  the mill to operate at its present-  site for more than ten years.  The orginal mill was a non-conforming operation and according-  to regional district bylaws such;  operations may not expand or ibe:  rebuilt if destroyed.  In allowing the rebuilding on  the present site, the regional.  board has stressed that the area'  will not be rezoned to industrial'  thereby eliminating any otherin?  dustrial operations in that specific  area. ,;  Although reconstruction of the  mill will be allowed, the board  will suggest the use of portable  equipment and buildings so .that  the operation can be moved to an  industrial zone sometime, within  the next ten years.  A public hearing concerning*  the shakemill bylaw (bylaw 35-28)  will take place February 2. *i)WnT'JIF~rmi"IH''"*Wi'lrt"WM||-|~"l~Ll"T 'WBrnia|~  pu\Mi0fnm>'ms0'"i��i'"im ��m*"MOTWWBf  wt#s+m"   rmi  i,**-  Sunshine Coast News, January 20, 1976  Sunshine Coast  Published at Gibsons, B.C. every Tuesday  by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.

Box460, Gibsons, B.C.  air to most  "It's so true," said the student from  Elphinstone   Secondary   who   frequents  this newspaper office.  "What?"  ' 'The cartoon in the paper."  The cartoon this person was referring to concerned a recent news story on  Elphinstone students being banned from  Sunnycrest Plaza. The cartoon, published  in the January 13 issue of the Coast  News, satirically depicted a group of Elphinstone students enjoying some of the  more devious attractions of Sunnycrest  Plaza.  As indicated by the letters to the  editor in this week's paper, not all  students, or parents for that matter, appreciated the way in which the message  of the cartoon was conveyed. It was satirical, and sometimes satire bites.  One's reaction to the two differing  views of the cartoon brings omto mind a  Una from Hamlet which says that ". . .  nothing is either good or bad unless  ��� thinking makes it so." But we won't use  that as an escape.  No, we must agree that the satirical  comment made through the cartoon  would not be applicable to all students.  And therefore we do not hesitate in apologizing to those students and parents  who were offended. This newspaper  strives to provoke some thought on an  issue; it does not strive to be offensive.  We agree that the means by which  the message of the cartoom was conveyed may have been somewhat unfair  but we also feel the message should be  given some thought. Elphinstone Principal Don Montgomery feels the Sunnycrest problem has been resolved. Senior  students are now allowed to go to the  plaza for coffee during their study breaks  and the cafeteria now has two ping pong  tables for students'-use during leisure  times. New clubs and activities are being  organized.  It is hoped that before the beginning  of the next school year, Elphinstone will  develop a campus where a student does  not merely go for academic instruction,  but a place where a student's various interests and capabilities can be expressed.  School is not just a conglomeration of  brick walls wherein a developing individual must sit row upon row to listen to the  day's lesson.  Perhaps it is by now almost a cliche  to blame any problems at Elphinstone on  the transition between the 'old' Elphie  and the 'new' Elphie. But once again it  must be done. Last year's portables certainly didn't nourish the atmosphere of  belonging. There was no gymnasium,  there was no cafeteria, and there were  few school clubs and organizations because the school could not facilitate them.  Even now the new Elphonstone is  not completely finished, certainly not  finished enough to accommodate the  students' extra-curricular activities, and  the school still faces the problem of having three hundred more students than it  shold have.  Perhaps Sechelt Teachers' Association president George Matthews put  his finger on it when he said earlier that  the problem at the plaza is a manifestation of the fact that the school is not  completed and overcrowded. That's not  to say that next year at this time Elphinstone will be the perfect school, but with  300 less students and with proper facilities for both the academic and the extracurricular activities, the situation can  only get better.  In the past this newspaper has  lamented and criticized the fact that  Elphinstone in the past few years has  been a poor learning situation. But in retrospect some kind of a positive  acknowledgement must also be made to  those people���the students, the teachers,  /'and especially to Principal Don Mont-  g6mery--^wh<S7have been forced'fi> function in this less than desirable environment. Perhaps it is to the credit of these  people that the great majority of Elphinstone students were not meant to---  and should not have been���the object of  the afore mentioned cartoon.  Don't fight��� switch  Violence on television often sparks  the most violent of debates when discussed by ordinary viewers. People, depending on their viewpoint, damn it, ignore it  or insist it has no long-term effect on our  lives. However, recently, an eminent  Canadian man of letters, Dr. Northrop  Frye of Toronto, has advanced the theory,  which we suggest has some validity. Dr.  Frye says that it is not the act of violence  itself which is always wrong, but the enjoyment of watching ��� and thereby participating in ��� an act of violence.  In fact, suggests Professor Frye,  some of the acts of violence which were  portrayed through our television screen  actually have had civilizing and positive  effect on the public. An illustration of this  would be the way in which the reporting  of the real horror and evil of the Vietnam  war did so much to bring the average  American to hate that war, instead of becoming complacent or inured to it.  Violence is a real part of our society.  We live in no paradise and to ignore it, or  anything else that is dehumanizing, is to  live like the proverbial ostrich. Newsmen  in all the media have a duty to report  violence whenever it occurs and so do  creative novelists, dramatists and television producers.  The reporting itself becomes violent  when it is slanted by headlines or overdone by dramatists so that people see  violence as an acceptable option. Yet the  prevalence of violence is part of the unpleasant reality of life today and the only  way that concerned people can fight it.  whether it be in the streets or on the  battlefield, is to know what it is and to  take courage by facing that reality.  The enjoyment of violence for the  sake of violence is a sick reaction but to  demand that the acknowledgment of its  existence be legislated from our television screens is to deny reality. It would  also make it more difficult to strive for a  more humane, more peaceful and, eventually, less violent society.  On the other hand to inflict programs  of violence upon children can have deep  consequences on their lives, say some  experts. Parents and concerned citizens  could do more to end violence-for-enter-  tainment than any censor by expressing  their disgust and horror at sucli television  by refusing to watch it and by refusing to  purchase any of the products manufactured by its sponsors. That is the most  effective form of censorship.   1111 a 111111  FIVE YEARS AGO  Opposition continues to Gibsons mayor's move to add the  Henry road area to the village.

"No substantial increase in production can be anticipated until demand rises, metal  prices increase, and government  policies affecting the industry are  changed. Even then, investment in mining in this province  will only build up gradually while  relatively long term investment  commitments which have been  diverted to other countries are  carried out," the Outlook states.  Aluminum remains in a very  depressed condition and earlier  indications of a recovery during  197<) are now, if not shattered,  badly bent. Coal production in  l lie province will at best remain  Level through to mid-1976.  B.C. housing starts are' expected to be about 34,000 in 1976  compared to approximately 30,-  000 starts in 1975. Nationally,  about 225,000 starts are anticipated in 1976 ��� an increase from  less than 200,000 in 1975  Provincial unemployment, currently 8.1 percent, is expected to  average about 8 percent for 1976.  The Canadian unemployment rate  which remained relatively constant at 7.2 percent in 1975 is  forecast to be slightly higher in  1976.  The national rate of inflation  is forecast to decline to about 10  percent in 1976. Real GNP  growth has been revised downward to between 4 and 5 percent  because of the anticipated effects  of the anti-inflation program.  With all levels of government  sharing in excess of 40 percent of  Canada's GNP, the time for a  phased major reduction, in total  government spending is overdue,  the Outlook states.  The growth of government  spending at the provincial level  has become a major concern as it  has far outstripped the growth of  the gross provincial product  (GPP). The Outlook states that  annual growth rates in B.C. government spending have averaged  above 22 percent from 1971 to  1975, while the average annual  increase in GPP for the same  period was about 14 percent.  From 1973 to 1974, while the GPP  grew by 19 percent, provincial  government spending increased  35 percent. The Employers Council estimates the 1975 GPP at 17.8  billion, an increase of 10.6 percent over 1974. Provincial government expenditures for the same  year, based on government esti  mates, will have grown  about  14.8 percent.  Consumer confidence is the  crucial variable in the Canadian  recovery.. "To the extent that the  anti-inflation program is successful in reducing inflationary expectations, growing consumer confidence will be reflected in more  current spending, but this  may be offset to some extent as  lowered income expectations  cause consumer spending to be  reduced."  Major and unique uncertainties cloud the outlook for labor-  management relations in B.C.  during 1976. The announced determination of organized labor  to oppose effective implementation of anti-inflation legislation,  the new government's handling  of the back-to-work legislation,  and the large number of contracts  to be negotiated during the year  all pose substantial problems. All  these factors may provoke more  than the usual atmosphere of  confrontation in British Columbia  the council says.  The Council's Outlook was prepared following discussions with  B.C. economists, the Employers  Council Board of Governors,  chief financial officers, and senior  industrial relations officers, and  views the economy from a British  Columbia perspective.

Like  taking the bus to Moose Jaw  when you can take the train.  ���For those of you who insist on  inhabiting the back row, let's  consider the alternatives. Most  private radio stations have one  primary interest: the persuit of  profit. They focus on light entertainment, an assortment of pop,  schmaltz, and sleaze and if it  wasn't for the hawks from the  CRTC, the majority of their  material would be sucked up the  pipe from the U.S.  Private stations aim to please  ihe masses, and the masses to  them, represent a blob of jelly  that ebbs and flows according to  the latest whims of the boys on  Ray Street. The more people a  private radio station can claim  as listeners, the easier it will be  for that station to seduce potential advertisers. More advertisers, more profit. Although some  private broadcasters serve local  communities to various extents,  from good to indifferent, most  do little to further the development of the Canadian consciousness.  Think of what this country  would have been like without  the CPR. The same goes for  CBC radio. '  As far back as 1929 it was  realized that broadcasting in  Canada could not be allowed to  roam freely to follow the laws of  the jungle. At that time the  problems of American industrial  and cultural domination and the  regional  disparities caused by'  geographical isolation were already being experienced. Sir  John Aird was chairman of the  , first Royal Commission on  Broadcasting and while Bonnie  and Clyde terrorized our Southern neighbors he came to the  conclusion that broadcasting in  ' this country could be served  only by some form of public  ownership, operation, and  control.  Thus in 1936 a government  mandate established the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation  which was to provide a national  and predominantly Canadian  broadcasting service to as high a  percentage of the population as  was technically possible. This  was an aim that was far beyond  the resouces and outside the  purpose of a commercial  system.  Specifically the CBC's mandate was that:  1. It should offer a balanced fare  of information; enlightenment,  and entertainment for people of  all types and with all interests:  2. It's services should be extended to all parts of Canada:  3. It should broadcast in both  French and English and meet  the special needs of the various  geographical regions;  4. It should contribute to the  development of a national unity  and provide a continuing expression of Canadian identity.  CBC radio has carried out this  objective. Faithfully. The  national radio system has become a vital element in making  Canadian culture available to  the Canadian people. It does not  try to communicate to the same  individual all day long and instead, presumes that this country has different individuals  with different tastes and interests. Furthermore, CBC radio  has placed itself in the position  of acting as a national consciousness to people who are  concerned about the values that  Canadians place upon their  country and themselves. Just  ask Barbara Frum about the  great Canadian beaver.  It's been said more than once  that CBC radio has done for  communication what the railway has done for transportation  both in socio-economic development and in removing the  hurdle t to allow Canadians to-  understand themselves and  this country.  There are those who are of the  opinion that radio has been on a  steady decline since the advent  of television. Radio may never,  again reach the heyday of the  thirties and forties but as any  loyal CBC listener will tell you,  it's far from declining. In fact,  some will even go as far as to  ask rhetorically: Is there anything else?  Perhaps one day when television loses its fascination as a  technological toy, it too will be  able to provide us with more  than just an opium of escapist  entertainment.  As we Canadians are apt to  say, the Americans may have  their Archie Bunker and their  apple pie, but we have CBC  radio.  unshine Coa  / "Think Tank"  Session  C.A.R.S. supervisory team has  chosen the Sunshine Coast for its  first ever "think tank" session:  away from its B.

'���'���t   Rock hound  A hobby with polish  So you got a pet rock for Christmas eh? That's nothing. Ran  Vernon has thousand of pet rocks.  He diet get a rock saw for Christmas, though. .That way he can  saw up the rocks he already has  and get twice as many.  No, Ran is not your local entre-  penuer who has decided to cash in  on the pet rock craze. He takes his  rocks more seriously than that.  He's what's known as a lapidary  who practises the art and science  or lapidary work.  He's been involved in collecting, cutting, polishing gemstones  for only about three years but  take one look at what he refers to  as a modest collection, and listen  to him talk for a few minutes  about 'mustang jasper, rose  quartz, chrisopraise, marble jade,  and rodonite, and you would think  that he's collected rocks for most  of his life.  Ran along with his wife, Ev,  who does most of the mounting  for jewelry bracelets, necklaces,  and rings, takes his lapidary  hobby quite seriously. The  Vernons have a small gemstone  workshop with equipment that a  novice rockhound would call  sophisticated. The new saw that  Ran got for Christmas, for instance, has diamond teeth and is  worth about $1500. It chops  through a good size rock in a matter of hours.  The Vernons began their extensive collection of rocks by setting aside a few days of their holidays every year to do some rock-  hounding. They stop at little rock  shops along the highways, for instance, and try to pick up samples  of what they don't already have.  That's when you start coming up  with all the exotic names such as  Brazilian and India snakeskin  agates.  Ran thinks that lapidary work  makes an ideal retirement hobby.  As a matter of fact, he says its a  great hobby for anyone. You can  start out as small as you want and  the world is your limit.  You can start, for instance, by  just :rockhounding. -Collecting  gemstones for the sake of a collection. Or you can go a little  further and buy a small tumbler  which allows you to smooth and  polish your rocks.  The tumblers are small motor  driven cylinders in which the  rocks tumble constantly rubbing  on an abrasive material. Ev is  usually in charge of the tumbling  and says that most of the rocks  have to be tumbled almost constantly for about six weeks. A  tumbler duplicates nature's  actions, only it does it much  faster. After tumbling the gemstones for some time, what you  end up with are called baroques.  These, the Vernons say, are ideal  for mounting on jewelry. All you  do is match up the colors and  shapes for a pleasing effect.  Or if you want to go a little  Can  further, you can shape your gen-  stones into what is called a  cabichon. That means shaping  the rock to fit in a particular ring  or broach. Making the cabichon  involves some other equipment,  mainly sanders and grinders and  buffers, which, actually, can be  done on the same machine. And  mounting the cabichons can involve you in another related  hobby���silversmithing.  Another aspect of this hobby  involves merely cutting slabs of  gemstone to find out what is inside. Ran has an extensive collection of cut gemstones and  some of the stone show such an  intricate pattern of lines' and  colors that you can hardly believe  it to be nature's work. One small  slab of stone, for example, is what  Ran calls a picture stone. Without  even using any imagination, you  can see two or three mountains  and a winding glacier. And it's all  in genuine blue-grey color.  Another such stone Ran calls  "fire in the Indian village." there  are a number of tepees with  smoke billowing out over top. The  rock is a firey orange.  It's because of what one can  find inside a rock that Ran says:  "Collecting alone is okay, but the  interesting thing is exposing their  potential."  If you thing that lapidary work  is fascinating, you're right. But if  you're planning a rock hunt along  Gower beach tommorrow forget  it. There are no gemstones  around this area, according to  Ran. He says some local rocks will  take a polishing and end up looking quite good but they are  definitely not gemstone material.  AH you'll find around here is an  agate or two.  A lot of the rock shops around  the country will carry various  samples   of   rock   from   other  Exposing the potential  FBDB help  you?

From Africa, India,  Australia, from South America.  Jade is a popular gemstone and it  is native to this province. It's  expensive though, says Ran, as  he holds up a three or four pound  stone at $30 to $40 a pound.  Ordinary rocks are about $3 to $4  a pound. Still a good deal considering one pet rock in a cardboard box sells for $4.  If you want to wander around  and get your own, the best place  to go around southern B.C., says  Ran is around the Princeton-  Hope-Lillooet area. The Princeton  slide is good too although there  are signs asking people not to  take the rocks.  The Vernons are talking about  starting a lapidary club on the  Sunshine Coast. Some people  have already expressed an interest in getting together and  talking rock. If you are interested  you're probably welcome. Leave  your pet rock at home but bring  your tiger's eyes.

Time flies.  Write "ASK". Box #5,  Vancouver, B.C.  byKENSUDHUES  Terry, Mike and Richard are  popular people in Gibsons. Who  are they, you might ask.'To their  more than 150 regular customers  they are marriage counsellors,  crying towels and general advisors. They run the Dogwood Cafe  on Gibson's Marine Drive. The  Dogwood caters to a true cross-  section of the local population;  from the pioneer to the eternal  transient. Everyone comes in for  coffee and conversation. Some  people come in just to argue.  An atmosphere of belonging  fills the place at all times. The  cafe is somehow similar to an  elementary school open area  where everybody does a number  of different things at the same  time. Organized chaos, it's called. And if you want to indulge  your little eating idiosyncrasies  (I like garlic in my grilled cheese  sandwich ) all you do is holler into  the open kitchen and whoever is  at the grill will accommodate your  strangest fancy without even raising an eyebrow.  One of the main features of the  Dogwood is the wall-sized road  map of the area from Port Mellon  to Egmont with a mileage chart  beside it. It's a big help to first-  time visitors to this Raincoast.  When new faces show up, within  minutes one can find out where  they're from and where they're  going, how long they're staying,  what they do for living and what  they think of what they've seen  so far.  If you don't feel the Dogwood is  the most elegant place on the  Sunshine Coast to dine, you are  probably right. But it does have  an atmosphere of friendliness  and the motley crowd of people  who think of it as their second  home will never leave you groping for an interesting conversation.  The Dogwood will close its  doors for about three weeks at  the end of this month so that a  complete renovation can take  place. New slate floors 'and seating areas will be installed. Hopefully, the atmosphere of 'come in  and sit a spell' will remain the  same.  Editor's note: Ken, who calls  the Dogwood his "watering hole"  has promised to do a series of  articles profiling some of the char  actors  that frequent  the cafe.  (Continued from Page 1)  BENEFICIAL  From the employer's point of  view, the program is beneficial  because of the manpower subsidies. The strings attached include that the employer actually  put the employee through a training program that is supervised by  Manpower. But as that trainee  learns and becomes more productive in his work, the government  subsidy remains the same thereby providing an increasingly  better financial return.  The manpower program is a  further benefit to employer because it saves time in hiring. The  Manpower office has files on  people with specific interests or  looking for specific jobs and an  employee with a job opening  merely has to phone Manpower to  be given a list of names of suitable positions for the trainees.  From preliminary investigations, Ross says employers  have already expressed an interest in participating in the program. But no concrete committments have been made. .  PROBLEMS  One of the problems is that jobs  in construction, for instance, are  currently at a low because the  construction industry is suffering a general slump. The Sunshine Coast is also loosely referred to a resort area, meaning that  jobs are more plentiful in the  summer months than they are  during the winter. That holds true  also for the loging industry which  lays off a considerable amount of  people during the winter because  of bad weather, brings much of  the logging to a halt.  Within the unemployment figure of 700 mentioned earlier there  are some people who are considered by Manpower as unemployable. These are the people who  cannot manage to hold down a  job, no matter what they do.  "We can counsel and counsel  these people but they just can't  hang onto their jobs," says Ross.  He also explains that sometimes  H. M. Loyal Opposition  BY DON LOCKSTEAD, M.L.A.  One of the .mostTimportanty if  not well-known aspects of governing a Canadian Province, lies in  providing the Opposition with the  resources necessary to do its very  important job.  In a Parliamentary democracy,  government members can very  rarely criticize even slightly anything the government says or  does. Thus the whole burden of  providing alternatives, of expressing contrary public opinion, lies  with  the   opposition   members.  In Constituencies like  MacKenzie, this task is added to  the greater one of maintaining  Joel Aldred talks to Brian Bristow, financial advisor for B.C.  Central Credit Union, about registered retirement savings plans:  "Your plan is one of the fastest  growing in B.C.  ��� A. .   Why?"  jp*  contact, with thousands of citizens, dealing with their problems, conveying their thoughts on -  Legislation, and so on. Democracy cannot survive unless both  these functions are carried out,  fully and energetically. That is  why when we in the N.D.P. formed the government in 1972, ample;  provision was made for secretarial and research assistance to opposition members. In the face of  considerable criticism, we also increased the incomes of M.L.A.'s,  so that they would not have to  spend time earning extra money  to support their families.  Rich Bounty  When our thoughts and desires are turned to God, He  gives of his rich bounty in joy-filled ways. However, we must be  just as ready to give as we are to  receive. In Luke 6: 38 we read.  "Give, and it shall be given unto  you; good measure, pressed down  and shaken together, and running  over--"  Mary Baker Eddy in her textbook, Science and Health with  Key to the Scriptures, states  "The good you do and embody  gives you the only power obtainable." This power is the priceless gift of health, supply, intelligence, goodness and ' love  which is purs from God when we  are willing to share it with others.  This sharing is the consciousness  of the Christ in our day to day experience.  FOR RESULTS  I myself did not realize how important that matter was, until like  all M.L.A.'s, I had to face the  very heavy expenses associated  with being a member ��� and constituents who visited me in  Victoria will agree that I did not  entertain them royally.  But I was happy to be able to  devote my whole time to being  your member. I was especially  happy that the income, while not  great, made it possible for an  ordinary person like me to run  successfully. Nobody wants a  system in which only the rich can  seek public office.  All of this is a lengthy explanation for why those of us in the  Opposition are so disturbed at the  signs that the new Socred government like the old one, has no  idea of the importance of providing opposition members with the  resources that are necessary to do  our job for you, the citizens of this  province.  There is no significant savings  for the tax-payer in the cut-backs  proposed by the Socreds. At  most, it will involve a reduction of  about 10 people in a public service of about 40,000, or about  0.0033 percent of the Provincial  budget. Yet this tiny fraction lies  at the very heart of our parliamentary system. What we are  seeking is simply the capability  to represent you well. That involves, first of all, by being able  to give my whole time to the job.  Just as important, it involves  having qualified help to type letters, to do research into complex  legislative issues, and so on.  If the new Government sticks to  this decision to down-grade the  services of the M.L.A.'s to their  constituents, the constituents will  be the losers.  Brian:  'The. B.C.

R.C. Winterburn  Area Assessor  such people are given psychometric tests, if they so desire,  but he adds that such tests by  themselves are certainly not conclusive. The tests only give some  indication of the person's interests.  There is also a further group of  people to whom Ross would not  recommend the industrial training program. These are such  people as fishermen and loggers  who obviously have skills but who  are currently collecting unemployment due to the seasonal nature of their jobs.  Ross says that even outside the  training program itself he has  many people on file who are  skilled and who in fact have real  talent. He also stresses that Manpower acts primarily as a counseling agency that tries to bring the  employer and the employee together.  "Many people say I went to  Manpower and they didn't do a  thing for me," says Ross. "But  we don't necessarily direct people  to jobs ��� we direct them to areas  of interest." He agrees that Manpower should be regarded as  another resource from where an  individual may find possible leads  to jobs.  NO CUTBACK  And of course Manpower is not  going to be helpful to the unemployed public unless it gets the  cooperation of the employer.  With recent cutbacks made by  Ottawa some of Manpower's  programs will be eliminated. But  Ross is quick to point out that  there will be no cutback in the industrial training program. The  federal government would be cutting it's own neck, by eliminating  such a program Ross says, because it would put so many more  unemployed people on the insurance payroll.  Some local companies, Canadian forest Products, for example, have already started participating in the training program. Ross says that more  employers have shown interest'  but in order to make the program  worthwhile, more of a variety of  jobs are needed. He points out  that Manpower service and the  programs it sets up are for both  the sake of those looking for jobs  and those employers looking for  .people to fill their vacant positions. And with some success it  all contributes to a healthier  economic and, social climate for  both the Sunshine Coast area and  the entire country.

When the final buzzer sounded  the scoreboard indicated 84 for  St. Thomas Moore and 76 for  Elphinstone.  The game was played before a  large and noisy crowd in Elphin-  stone's gym. Sound effects  throughout the game were supplied by two Elphinstone students  and their trumpets and if you  closed your eyes, it was not hard  to imagine yourself in the Montreal Forum.  Top scores for Elphinstone in  the fast-paced game were Dave  Lamb with 34 points, Steve Miles,  with 12 points, and Trevor Swan  with ten points. Other point  getters for Elphie were Pat  Gaines, Duane Anderson, and  Ken Hinks.  *; :'.,'^4,t.ir,' tTfrgi&sui.  -*r*rf*t��"~~      r        ��� - .��   ��*. ...��    ,,,.  *     M"' / ���   ZK't��^-��  .... ��� -  ���...>���:...���> -���        " --   ������'��� --,'�� ;  lllipK' _ ?iSlfii' ��$|��fcll|||s* ^pis^^#pi^��,*v  1  1  "��&$?$?��� '�����&.- ?>*Zi3��ki't v i*S-" *"$':?&���  " :%%^&^'  KM  H &  '���^SEB    ****** *^B a^laS  .**'!*'  ��� ���  ^mmmmHm  a<^wnr *"�����*��*��� ******  ��u  THINGS ARE LOOKING UP!

Curling news  General meeting Monday  by HARRY TURNER  The Gibsons Winter -Club has  finally opened its doors for curling. In the first week of operation  we have filled three nights of curling. We have a start toward a  Monday night league which you  may join by contacting Art Craze  (886-9882), Marlene Bjorinson  (886-7037) or Haig Maxwell  (886-2045). They will try to accom  modate everyone, regardless of  what night you wish to curl, even  if we have to juggle teams and  players. Please sign up on our  lists which are situated in both  banks and the Co-op store.  High School physical education  curling is due to start next week  and we hope to get grade six and  sevejn started as soon as the elementary schools contact us. A  High School league is also being  organized. There is still plenty of  room in the Ladies' afternoon  league from one until three on  Thursday afternoon.  Our Senior Citizens' league has  openings and anyone wishing to  curl in it should contact Bernie  Parker (886-9664). Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights are open  and anyone wishing to rent ice  can phone the rink (886-7512),  Gus Schneider (886-9906) or  Harry Turner (886-2184). We will  be happy to make arrangements  for you to use the ice.  Because our facility is incomplete and we are still scurrying  through the throes of initial organ  ization we have cancelled our  February 7 bonspiel. We will try  to organize one for later this year.  Il  The Winter Club is having  another general meeting on Monday, January 26 at the rink at 8pm  to inform members of what is taking place. We also invite you to  come up on Saturdays to help us  finish the lounge area for next  year. Watch for signs around the  rink about work parties. Remember, the club is only as good as  its members.  We would like to thank the kids  for their manners and general  good behaviour during the skating. Because of this the skating  session was enjoyed by all.  Now that the Winter club is  operating, I would like everyone  to recognize six people who were  the backbone of the volunteer  work parties. Six people who  spent more time and effort building the rink than anyone else. Six  people who shared, a dream for  winter recreation in Gibsons and  who each gave up over 300 hours  of their time in the past year to  see that dream fulfilled. Although  many, many people in the Village  rallied many times to erect the  building; when the beams were  raised, the floor laid, the roof put  on, and the sewer laid, with help  that was very much appreciated,  these six carried on week after  week with the drudgery of every  task and slogged it out at every  work party every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday and some  weeks,everyday.  Thank you to Terry Connor,  Ozzie Hincks, Lloyd Partridge,  Ron Lacey, Gus Schneider and  Pat Tyson. It is people like these  who had a dream and were willing  to work hard week by week to see  it achieved, and who are responsible for the community having this  facility.  To those who are interested in a  swimming pool and an arena, it  will take the same kind of dedication, even in the face of pessimism to complete such projects. I  hope another group in the community promotes activity to make  this dream come true, and then  work hard day by day to continue  to make this community a better  place in which to live and work.

The British Columbia Coaching  Development Program is part of a  national program which has been  developed co-operatively by the  Coaching Association of Canada,  National Sports Associations and  the provinces to meet an increasing need expressed by sports governing bodies for more and better  trained coaches. In British Columbia the program will be implemented by the Leisure Services Branch in co-operation with  provincial sports associations.  The program will consist of five  levels, with each level having  three inter-related sections:  general theory, technical and  practical coaching in which  coaches may put into practice  knowledge acquired in the general theory and technical sections  is required.  Recognition through'accredited  certification will be provided to  coaches who successfully complete all three sections at a particular level in the program.  The program provides in one  package three major ingredients  of successful coaching: theoretical knowledge, technical expertise, and practical experience.  "When these are combined  with the dedication and enthusiasm of our coaches the results  should be more enjoyment for  more athletes, with a consequent  increase in participation; higher  all-round levels of performance;  and more satisfaction for coaches," said Mrs. McCarthy.  For many years amateur coach  es in Canada have been able to increase their knowledge by attending clinics which have provided  technical information on the skills  drills and tactics or*a particular  sport. The new British Columbia  Coaching Development Program  expands on the existing model by  providing five levels of technical  expertise to suit coaches at different stages of development. A  general theory component has  been added at each level, providing a scientific base to sport,  upon which all coaches may build  their programmes. A period of  practical coaching sections  will be handled by more than  thirty provincial sports associations.  It is intended to make courses  in the British Columbia Coaches  Development Program available  to coaches in all areas of the province. Level 1, general theory  courses, which are of sixteen  hours duration, are scheduled to  begin in early January at Vancouver Community College, Langara;  Comosun Community College  Victoria; Selkirk Community College, Castlegar; Malaspina Community College, Nanaimo and  Parks ville; and in Burnaby  through the Continuing Education Department. Further courses  will be held early in the year in  Nanaimo, Duncan, Port Alberni,  Terrace, Dawson Creek, Prince  George, Kamloops, New Westminster and Vancouver.  The program, including the  training of specially selected  instructors, the provision of teach  ing resources such as films and  coaches' manuals, and the subsidization of coaches' training courses, is being funded by the British  Columbia Physical Fitness and  Amateur Sports Fund.

HARVEY FUNERAL HOME  Seaview Road  Gibsons  886-9551  COMPLETE SERVICES  LOCAL OR DISTANT BURIALS; CREMATIONS; MEMORIALS  PRE-ARRANGEMENTS  DAN DEVLIN ��� OWNER-MANAGER  Ujj,iiiiJJJj  Vandals damage "pur" creeks  by JOHN HIND SMITH  Here we are talking about rehabilitating creeks to make them  more attractive to the fish population and the federal government is taking about spending  millions of dollars on stream enhancement while at the same time  a bunch of irresponsible people  seem equally determined to  wreck the same creek.  There have been at least four  cases of this stupidity since the  beginning of this year but, as  usual, by the time it has been reported and the necessary authority has arrived on the scene, the  damage has been done and is ir-  reversable. The gravel, sand, and  mud stirred up by a bulldozer or a  backhoe operating in the creek is  washed down by the water and  any fish eggs in the gravel below  are smothered due to lack of  oxygen. Consequently a whole  year's deposit of eggs can be  wrecked in ten minutes.  The tragedy of this is that once  a salmon run has been destroyed  in this manner it is gone for ever  and will not rehabilitate itself.  The local trout population would  probably survive but you can say  goodbye to the salmon for years  to come.  WANTED  Csed furniture ot wbat  have yoD  Al'S USED FURNITURE  WE BDT BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons ��� 886-2812  We hear so much these days  about vandalism by youngsters  but never anything about damage  like this. It is about time some of  these adult vandals should be  made examples of and taken to  court for their misdemeanor and  fined in a way that fits the crime,  not a paltry $250 as in one recent  case.  The solution to this problem is  sd simple. All the individual has  to do before doing his thing as far  as the creek is concerned is to  contact the local fish and wildlife  officer, Pat Mulligan, or the federal fisheries officer concerned,  either Mr. Wheeler or Ray Kraft,  and tell them what he wants to  do.  These people are listed in the  phone book and there seems to be  no logical reason why some consultation should not occur, unless, of course, that person concerned knows that what he intends to do would not be  approved.  These might seem like strong..  words but the situation demands  . this and the sooner some action��� ���.'  some meaningful action���is taken <:f  to correct the situation, the 7,  better.

Special travel feature  me Farm popular attraction  �� The tallest animal at the Okan-  agan Game farm stands 15 feet  high; the smallest is barely 15  inches. Between the two, there's  a vast variety of species from  every continent in the world who  now roam the grassy benches  overlooking Skaha Lake.  The game farm is located five  miles south of Penticton on 560  acres of land. It was founded  eight years ago by a group of  Okanagan people who wanted to  provide a place where animals  from around the world could be  kept with maximum freedom.  "Some of us had seen Al  Oeming's game farm in Alberta  and we wanted to do something  similar here," notes Lewis Reist,  assistant manager of the farm.  What they have done involves  fencing off large paddocks where  most of the animals can roam at  will.  Because of the open terrain and  particular climate of the Okanagan, farm personnel have concentrated on raising hooved stock.  Among these species are both the  smallest and tallest animals on  the farm: the tiny Muntjac deer  from India, that reaches only 14  inches in height; and the giraffe,  who has grown to 15 feet. Other  hooved species range from the  African pygmy goat and the Japanese Sika to species found in  British Columbia, such as the  Stone sheep.  Not all the paddocks are the  same. The paddock that houses  the mountain goats, for example,  contains a large rocky bluff to  make the animals feel at home;  other paddocks contain light forests of Ponderosa pine that provides shade for animals that need  it.  The farm is planned so that  visitors can see the animals in  something resembling their native habitat. Roads wander between the paddocks and a small  COAST   HOMES  k  Double Wide Price Example  24x40 PREMIER, 3 BEDROOM  FULL PRICE $18,495  Price includes: Fridge, Stove, Drapes, Carpets in living room, hall and master bedroom.

Visitors are encouraged to leave their cars and  approach the paddocks for a closer look at some of the animals, although notices warn that some  species should be approached  with caution.  In addition to the hooved stock,  the farm houses a pair of lions,  a pair of tigers, a cougar, a lynx  and a cheetah. There are also  bears, porcupines, badgers, foxes  and snakes on the farm.  The game farm is open year-  round, but some species disappear inside in the winter.  These include both the giraffe  and the Muntjac deer; the zebras,  ostrich and emu also demand winter housing.  The 110,000 people who toured  the game farm last year would  probably feel that the animals  here have freedom in captivity.  The fact that there are 100 live  births on the form each year  would seem to say that the animals agree.

Government Photo  Job's Daughters  Installation on Sunday  The Installation of Margaret  Duncan as Honored Queen, of  Bethel 28, International Order of  Jobs Daughters on the 25th of  January is the start of a new term  for the Officers and members.  The girls look back on a very  active six months with Retiring  Honored Queen Noni Parsey.  Early July a beach part with  parents and council members got  the girls into the swim of things,  and a few days later they assisted  the member of the Eastern Star at  their annual summer tea. Early  September meetings saw plans  made for fund raising projects to  assist ^he scholarship, charitable  funds and the expenses of the  Bethel, Their. first visit to a  DeMoiay Installation was part of  a week end to Vancouver.  Not forgetting the principles on  which their organization is  founded, the girls accompanied  by their guardian council and  parents held a church parade at  Gibsons United Church, followed  with a luncheon held at the home  of Honored Queen Noni Parsey.  An interfraternal night with  family and friends from the  Masons and Eastern Star where  the girls took part in the entertainment and games proved an  enjoyable time. The big event of  the term was the official visit of  the Grand Guardian of Jobs  Daughters of British Columbia,  Mrs. Sylvia Gibson and her  officers. In the presence of 90  guests the girls demonstrated  their floor work and also presented the Grand Guardian with a  cheque to assist The Western  Institute for the Deaf, the 1975 -  76 project for all Jobs Daughters  in-British Columbia.  A visit to Squamish to participate in that Bethels Official  visit resulted in a return visit from  the Squamish bethel with their  Guardian Mrs. Marge Candey  and the members and parents of  Bethel 28 hosting a progressive  dinner for the huest. Old and new  members joined in the work  parties, making Yule logs, Christmas candles and selling pens  which created a fun time as well  as industrious work. Santa Gaus  in the guise of Associate  Guardian Mr. Don Hauka visited  the girls at Xmas.  Sunday January 11 -*he girls  accompanied by council and parents, attended the Ice-Capaded in  Vancouver, bringing to a happy  ending of the present term.  Credit must be given to Guardian  Mrs. Arlene Robinson, Associate  Guardian Mr. Donald Hauka, the  Guardian Council members and  parents who give of their time to  promote and guide these girls in  their endeavours to become good  citizens and a credit to the  community in which they live.  This resume of the activities of  Bethel 28's Jobs Daughters is  written with the" hope of promoting a better understanding of  what this organization involves  for girls from 11 to 20 years of  age, bringing to public view that  they are just one of the organizations still active in this area  dedicated to the young people of  today.  ^^^s^g^ii&��:  TODAY'S   ANSWER  fVi3iaBiw  ACROSS  1 Sheep  talk  6 Univ. in  Georgia  11 Chain of  hills  12 Hindu  princess  13 Pinched  (2 wds.)  15 Product  of Ceylon  16 Shoo!  17 Religious  body  18 Reprehensible  21 Fencing  cry  24 Amount  of printed  matter  26 Do as  Perry  Mason does  (2 wds.)  28 Squeal  29 Part of  V.H.F.  30 Kind  of dance  31 Swiss  river  33 Spanish  lawsuit  34 Old  note  37 Brought  suit  (4 wds.)  41 Feebleminded  42 Happening  43 Enchantress  who loved  Jason .  44 Popular  suiting  material  DOWN  1 Dry, as  some  wines  2 Maginot or  Siegfried  3 Icelandic  classic  4 Question  on an  application  5 To the  point  6 Capricious  7 Place  of  business  8 "A  Majority  of ���"  9 Matter  (law)  10 Still  14 Familiarize  17 City in  Maine  18 Bundle  of cotton  19 Seaweed  extract  20 Moist  21 Barbecue  rod  22 Cartoonist  Peter  23 Umpire's  'signal  25 Snow on a  glacier  27 Part of  our breathing  apparatus  32 Functions  33 Tamarisk  salt  tree  34 Pitcher  35 Unending  36 Chip  in  37 Popular  sandwich .���  filling  38 Chemistry  suffix  39 Performed  40 Street  sign  :���-.���>  IBONNIEBROOK  i  i  GOWER PT.

Acclaimed Film Actress Brenda Vaccaro  Prefers "Biood And Fire" Roles  *f  Brenda Vaccaro, three-time Broadway Tony nominee, television Emmy  Award-winner, acclaimed film actress, is all things at once, yet one  thing always, and that is herself.  Currently starring with a glittering  all-star cast as the editor-in-chief of  a racy women's magazine in "Jacqueline Susann's Once Is Not  Enough," Brenda explains the character she portrays in the film:  "Linda Riggs is not a feminist.  She's probably never read a book in  her life and she doesn't know words  that would be important as a magazine editor. She's overly ambitious,  but she's never dealing with anything  inside of herself so she's never dealing with truths."  The character, Brenda stresses, is  far removed from her own identity.  "A liberated woman should aim for  knowing what she is, what she has to  contribute, what she is aiming for. I  never thought of myself as a liberated  woman. I've just always been one."  From the start Brenda has known  what she wanted, to be the best possible actress. She was born in Brooklyn, but moved with her family to  Dallas when she was two where her  father opened the  famous Mario's  Restaurant. After school, Brenda  headed to New York to study drama  at the Neighborhood Playhouse.  Her first Broadway play, "Everybody Loves Opal," lasted three weeks,  then another lean period followed  before she was cast opposite Lauren  Bacall and Barry Nelson in "Cactus  Flower." It won for Brenda the first  of three Tony Award nominations  (the other two were for "How Now,  Dow Jones" and "The Goodbye  People").  Film roles starting with "Midnight  Cowboy" further made the Brenda  Vaccaro talents self-evident.  Brenda chooses roles to play, when  she can, that are based on real people, such as those she played in the  made-for-television movies "Honor  Thy Father" and "Sunshine."  "They're more interesting because  they have blood and fire."  Her recent role as Ethel Rosenberg  in "The Trial of Julius and Ethel  Rosenberg" was critically acclaimed,  but her favorite role is "one I haven't  had yet." "I'm sure there will be one  that comes along," Brenda is assured,  "because there is one for every  actress."  Mothers' March  Brenda Vaccaro starts as the editor in chief of a racy  women's magazine in Once is Not Enough. The film,  based on Jacqueline Susann's popular novel plays at the  Twilight Theatre January 25 to 27.  A special recognition went to a special Legion auxiliary  member recently.

Receiving help from the foundation can be done by contacting  Elphevents  Elphinstone is a calm before  the storm. On January 30 and 31  the storm will break sending torrents of exams down upon the  unfortunate students.  Last Wednesday the Elphinstone broadcasting network  made its debut. Station E.R.C.  went on the air Wednesday and  Thursday amid torrents of outrage from some teachers (and  some students). The speakers in  the school didn't help either as  they were not hooked up properly. Station R.A.W.K. profited  by E.R.C.'s mistakes and things  went smoothly on Friday.  Friday afternoon we had our  pictures taken, but lost our  photographer. Consequently,  Mr. Richardson found seven announcers just hanging around in  the foyer.  "What are you doing her?"  he asked  "Just getting our pictures  taken" I replied.  ' 'Ah', for the radio club?''  "Nah" said Scott, "because  we're popular." Needless to say  there was a stunned silence and  then the whole bunch, including  Mr. Richardson, doubled over in  laughter. Finally the pictures  were taken and 1 got top billing  as President. Being president I  also get yelled at a lot.  A new course will be offered  at Elphinstone next semester. It  is called Teachers Aid 11, and  will be offered in every block.  For months, senior students  have been helping juniors during their study periods, all out of  the goodness of their hearts.  Now students will get credits for  doing it. After three weeks of intensive training, the tutor will  be assigned a pupil ( in , the  course outline sheet they called  it a "tuttee" but I wouldn't  touch "tuttee" with a ten foot  pike.) The tutor must outline a  course trying to correct his pupils deficiencies, and report any  progress. In addition, the tutor  must talk to the pupil's teacher  to sec how he or she is getting  along.  In every hallway in Elphi you  will see a sign saying "homecoming". It had to be explained  that the Waltons weren't moving to Gibsons, and we weren't  advertising a popular song or  by D.J. HAUKA  tea commercial. What is happening is the old grads of Elhpi  are coming back March 19 and  20.1 might add if you are a grad  of Elphinstone from 1952 to  1975 you are cordially invited. If  you intend on coming please  send your name and address to  Elphinstone's Student Council,  Elhpinstone Secondary School,  Gibsons, B.C.  It is very important that we  know how many will be attending as we have to plan activities.  Amongst these activities we  hope there will be a carnival, a  dance, many exhibition games  (grads vs seniors) and a giant  graffittis show courtesy of  E.R.B.C.  The Chess club got it together  enough to give the standings of  all members (yours truly is not  too high on the list."  Currently under way in the  school is a ping pong tournament which is not quite finished. The results should be in  next week. The senior boys  basketball have won 12 out of 16  with a hard fought victory over  David Thompson, 76-67. And  that's about it from Elhpi.  any member of the Kinsmen  Club, inquiring through the local  Dept. of Public Health, Dept. of  Rehabilitation and Social assistance or by calling or writing to  the Foundation offices at 2256  W. 12th Ave., Vancouver B.C.
