This was announced by MP  Jack Pearsall in a telephone call  from Ottawa last week. Pearsall  said the ferries operation, which  has been at a halt since early  December, has received approval  from the federal treasury board  for a loan of SI00,000.  "I'm very, happy about this  victory/' Pearsall said, "because  this case sets a precedent."  An earlier application for funds  by Coast Ferries was rejected because the federal government indicated at that time it wanted to  do away with the federal trans  port subsidy program. The provincial government also rejected  a subsidy application.  . Bill New, president of the  Coast Ferry system which transports oxygen and acetelyne  tanks to the Sunshine Coast \ and  food and general cargo to 120  coastal logging communities, said  he was thrilled and couldn't  believe he had won the appeal  case. He praised MP Jack Pearsall for his assistance in the  appeal.

Last week students were given  a tour of the firehallby Fire Chief Dick Ranniger and  KINDERBRIGADE  when thay got back into the classroom everybody knew  a lot about fires and fire engines. So why not build our  own? they asked. So that's what they did. Chief of the  KinderbrigadeisMrs.KathyMcKib.bin.  Harder to serve riding  MLA Don Lockstead last week  charged the Social Credit government with deliberately making it  more difficult for MLA's to serve  their ridings'.'  The NDP MLA. in Gibsons last  week, said his secretary had been  Tired with only one half hour notice and called it one of the "deliberate ploys" the new government is using to lessen the service  to people.  Lockstead, who now receives  an MLA's salary Of $16,000 per  year plus $8,000 per year tax free  expense money, said his job as an  MLA is costing him money and  that no raise is expected. ���  .... .Lockstead said one of; the main  reasons for needing more money  was the large rural nature of this  riding. He said a number of  northern communities were accessible only by plane.  "Most of the time I have to stay  at the homes of my constituents  or I can't get around," Lockstead  said.    He    indicated    that    he  couldn't afford to stay in hotels.  Lockstead   said Premier Ben- ���  nett is hiring a bigger staff and  the '.ministers "are hiring right'  and left" while the MLA's can't  afford' to get around their own  ridings.  MLA  Lockstead also said the Social  Credit government is considering  the removal of commuter cards  for Sunshine Coast residents  ..using the ferries. He said If that*  proposal becomes a reaiity.'he  would fight against it.  Workers lay charges  Lockstead to stay  It is highly unlikely that former  Premier Dave Barrett would step  into this constituency, according  to NDP MLA Don Lockstead.  "I don't see the possibilities of  stepping aside and it would not be  logical for (Barrett) to run here."  Lockstead said an earlier suggestion by a local newspaper indicating that Barrett might run here  was totally irresponsible.  "This constituency is so big  that it takes a full time MLA to  serve it," Lockstead said. He  ; added that Barrett would not be  able' to devote all his time here  because of other duties as party  leader. The MLA said that even if  he was asked to step aside it was  highly unlikely that he would and  v'l certainly would not step down  ���without first checking with my  constituency executive."  He said if Barrett wanted to get  back into the legislature, there  tvould. be three seats he would  look at: Those scats are Victoria,  "Cowichan-Malahat. and Vancouver East.  Changes at  Sechelt Elem.  The Sechelt and District school  board is giving some consideration to making some changes at  Sechelt Elementary School.  Architect George Killick out-  ��� lined a plan .Thursday night that  would involve constructing a new  full size gymnasium and changing  the present half sized gym into  four classrooms. That would leave  one of the other buildings now  being used for classrooms free  for possible school board offices.  The board is also giving consideration to eliminating four  classrooms from Sechelt and  moving them to West Sechelt  and Davis Bay Elementary.  In the meantime Killick said a  * new elementary school to be built  !in the Pratt Road area in Gibsons  "could  be ready by  September.  He   said   construction   of   that  school   would   take   about   six  months. The board has not yet  x acquired property,for that school.  On a visit to Gibsons last week,  Lockstead said he was looking forward to being a member of the  opposition and that there were  several committees he would like  to work on.  He said the transport and the  resource and environment committees were a must for this rid- .  ing and he felt a good chance on  being on those committees. Lockstead said he would like to be on  the public accounts committee.  Stray dogs  back again  The problem of stray dogs was  revived again last week when  Sechelt council received two letters from residents complaining  aboiitstray dogs in the village.  "It's pretty sad that the Sunshine Coast has 15,000 people  and no dog pound," Aid. Frank  Lcitner said commenting on the  complaints. After a question by  Aid. Ernie Booth, acting Mayor,  asking what could be done about  the problem. Aid. Leitner said,  "you haven't solved the problem  in years, you-can't expect me to  solve it in two minutes."  Council considered handing the  problem over to the SPCA but  it was noted the organization had  already indicated it could not  solve the Sunshine Coast's dog  problem.  It was also noted that the  RCMP would not handle the problem unless there was a specific  complaint.  While council deliberated on  how to answer the complaints.  Aid. Morgan, Thompson said:  "Why don't we admit there's a  dog problem and admit there is  no solution to it now."  Council decided to follow Aid.  Thompson's suggestion. The residents will also be asked for  suggestions.  A further recommendation suggested that council initiate a  meeting with Gibsons and the  regional board to discuss the  dog problem.  Five Sunshine Coast members  of IWA Local 171 have laid charges against both their union and  their employer making allegations that they have been illegally denied seniority rights and  suffered illegal layoffs.  The five, David Scott, Robert  McConnelL, Locky Brock, John  Kelly, and Mel Harvey, have filed  a complaint with the Labor Relations Board claiming, that they  have been discriminated against  by their union and also accusing  Ma dn M Log Sorting Ltd. of interfering, with the administration  of a trade union and interfering  with the action of the employees  in their efforts to obtain collective representation.  iris expected that each of the  three pariies involved will plead  a case before the Labor Relations  Board hearing scheduled for'  February 8 in Vancouver.  According to a spokesman for  the workers, David Scott, the five  were unjustly stripped of their  seniority with M and M Log  Sorting, located at Andy's Bay,  Gambier Island after a rank and  file union meeting in Roberts  Creek has voted 65 percent to go  against   union   policy   ordering  workers to stay on the job.  Ed Gill, a local; union representative and an employee of  M and M said a union .policy  meeting last May determined that  Local 171 would riot go on strike  until told to do so by the Coast  negotiating committee.  Speaking of the Roberts Creek  meeting. Gill said it was only a  little splinter group of about 70  people trying ttf change the  policy of the majority of the people. Gill said membership in the  IWA Local 171 is 5,000 members.  Scott claims that when part of  the M and M crew did return to  work August 6, the five involved  were not notified correctly. He  said they were then removed from  the senior positions and subsequently laid off due to a work  slowdown under a contract clause  that states that any employee who  is absent without leave for more  than three days shall forfeit seniority rights.  Two of the five involved, said  Scott, have since returned to  work.  M and M Log Sorting, in a brief  to the Labor Relations Board,  has denied the allegations.  Alderman Jim Metzler reported at the Gibs6ns council meeting  last week, that renovation of the  government wharf has been delayed until at least March. This  will allow Wharfinger Jack Richardson more time to find temporary mooring space for boats currently docked at floats affected by  the repairs.  Aid. Metzler also stated that  funds have been allotted for the  construction of a new backstop  at Dougal Park.  Wharf  hazard  A safety hazard for pedestrians  on the wharf is being created by  vandals who are throwing covers  for fire Fighting access into the  harbor. This leaves eight inch  holes in the deck of. the wharf  ( and provides ihe opportunity for  ^anyone.walking there to trip and  break a leg. These covers now  have to be replaced with ones  which can be chained to the wharf  . deck.  Alderman Stu Metcalfe said at  .the January 20 council meeting  that ". . .it's a ridiculous piece  of vandalism and is costing the  taxpayers money." The holes  provide firefighters access to the  pilings of the wharf in the event of  a creosote fire, and are. spaced  roughly ten feet apart.  Second pub  application  Preliminary application has  been made to council by MTR  Holdings of Gibsons for rezoning  approval to accommodate a  neighborhood pub. The location  of the proposed pub, which would  be Gibsons second neighborhood  pub if approved, is on Highway  101 near Seaview Road, at the  present site of Pazco Fibreglass-  ing.  In the preliminary proposal,  the applicants indicated the pub  would accommodate about 100  patrons and underground parking  would be provided.  Council received the application favorably and have asked for  further details to study the  matter.  In other council news. Aid Bill  Laing reported that an unregistered sub-division of the airport is  be.ing undertaken to determine  the amount of space available  for hangars and mooring spaces  for private planes.     '  The survey will be done by the  Department of Transport.  Elphie's  homecoming  If you are a graduate of Elphinstone Secondary School then  you 're. being asked to 'come  home.' Present Elphinstone students are sponsoring Elphie's  first homecoming and all the graduates from the present back to  1952 are invited to attend the  two day affair.  Some of the activities planned  include - sports events,'-..talent,  shows and a graffiti show which  includes a countdown of music  dating back to 1952.  The homecoming will take  plaee March 19 and 20. A dance  will be held Saturday night,  March 20.  Paving  program  Sechelt Aid. Dennis Shuttle-  worth told council last week that  $35,000 would complete the village's present road system.  Shuttleworth said an estimate  from Coast Paving revealed that  the actual cost of paving is,$10.50  per lineal foot or $7.50 if the village's crush gravel was supplied.  Shuttleworth named a number  of streets that would be paved including the arena road, part of  Trail, Osprey, and the Boulevard.  The parking lot by the village office would also be paved.  Aid. Shuttleworth said there is  some hesitation to start this  year's road program until it is  known whether or not Sechelt will  get its sewers. He said it was no  use paving the roads if they had  to be torn up again for sewer lines  vice to Gibsons would probably  start the day after.  Asked about increased freight  rates. New would not confirm that  rates would be increased but he  did say that a complete study of  all rates in this coastal area is  necessary. He said a study of the  entire scheduled shipping should  be undertaken and a complete  review of the rates formula should  also be done.  Coast Ferries has operated in  this area for 21 years without  government assistance but recent  strikes in the forest industry left  the company with financial problems.  Teachers salaries cut  Teachers in this district will get  "a cut in salary as soon as the provincial government accepts the  federal government wage guidelines.  A recent statement made by  Education Minister Pat McGeer  said the present government has  initiated no change in the policy  of the previous government in  the federal anti-inflation program  "It is our view that salaries for  all teachers and faculty in  schools, colleges and universities will come under the federal  wage guidelines," McGeer said.  He said that recent salary awards  in the area of 12.5 percent appear to exceed the guidelines.  "I am asking all those school  boards affected by these awards  and those that settled salary  agreements earlier in the fall to  ensure that payrolls are adjusted  in accordance with the federal  guidelines."  A contract between the Sechelt  Teachers Association and the  school board was signed last  November. The contract gave  teachers here an average wage  increase of 12 percent.  At last week's school board  meeting secretary-treasurer Roy  Mills told the board he had received verification from the department of education that there  would be an adherence to the  guidelines as soon as the provincial government adopted the  necessary legislation.  Mills said the salary cutbacks  will be made at the time of the  board's hew budget in May. The  secretary-treasurer said later that  al! teachers in this district wilt  be affected.  The department of education  has indicated that the anti*  inflation program will be applied  to the entire education sector  and necessary wage adjustments  will be retroactive to January 1.   .  Indians to participate  The school board may be establishing policy that will ensure the  participation of the Sechelt Indian  band in matters relating to school  ��� programs. curricula, and staffing  in schools that enroll a significant  number of status Indian students.  The policy, contained in a notice of motion made by trustee  Maureen Clayton at last Thursday's board meeting, follows recent meetings with Department of  Education,    the    Indian    Band,  and  the  Department  of Indian  Affairs,   which  resulted   in   the  band stating that it would  not  enter into capital  cost  sharing  agreements    with    the    school  board   unless   more   meaningful  relations could be established between the board and the Indian  band. The band indicated it was  especially  interested   in   having  some     say     in     staffing     and  curriculum. '  At those earlier meetings  school board representatives indicated support for the concept of  involving the Sechelt Indian Band  in order to ensure that the curricula needs of the Indian students were met as effectively as  the need of the rest of the  population.  New office  The Sunshine Coast Community Resources Society has set up  office in Sechelt in the former  headquarters of the Social Credit  Party.  Bcrnicc Tyson, society president, said last week that government funding in the amount of  $1,540 per month is now being  received. Out of that sum $700  will pay the wages of a coordinator.  . Louise Hume, half time coordinator who looks after the  senior services will be paid half  the $700 and the rest will go to  another part time co-ordinator.  Interviews for this part time  position, said Mrs. Tyson, are  now underway.  The Indian Band agreed to reconsider the matter if the board  supported involvement of the  Indian Band in the educational  decisions relating to the Sechelt  Elementary schools and the new  Sechelt Junior Secondary.  Trustee Claus Spiekermann  said the Indian Band should be  involved immediately at Elphinstone Secondary. He said there  was danger of such a motion  being passed and then forgotten.  The motion.will be made at a  board meeting next month. If  is expected to get full board  support.    '  More fires  Fires in the Gibsons Fire Protection District were up a fHfrf  25 percent in 1975. according to1*  report filed by Chief Dick Rannf-  gcr. Though residential and vehicle fires were down considef-  ably, brush fires and miscellaneous blazes were responsible  for the higher figure. There were  a total of nine structural fires, five  vehicle fires and three chimney  fires, while there were 17 brush  fires, most of which occurred in  March, April and early May.  Miscellaneous fires such as-  stoves and dryers, totalled 15.  The fire chief's report was sub:.  mittcd to Gibsons council last  week.  Cash grant  The village of Gibsons has received an LIP grant for $9,900  for park improvements. The grant  was announced by the fedefal  government last week after earlier 1975 applications for funding  had been turned down. The village originally applied for $38,060'  The money will br sufficient  for the employment of three  people for'22 weeks. Hiring is  being done through the local!  Canada Manpower office.  A pack of canines run loose in front of the Sechelt  RCMP detachment. The problem of stray dogs has once  again been brought to the attention of local officials.  No strike predicted  Will the construction of the new Sechelt Junior Secondary school  be hampered by strikes this summer? Architect for the project, George'  Killick, doesn't think so.  Speaking to the school board Thursday night. Killick said the  annual construction strike seems to be a way for workers to take holidays but he added that "people feel we may get by this year without a  -strike."  He said the project would definitely suffer if a strike did occur but  he said there is a two month cushion.  The school board is pressing for a completion date of June 30.  Killick also told the board that work is proceeding on schedule  and that a structure would be standing by the end of February. He sSid  he had discussions with teachers regarding the specifications of the  school and the result was that many worthwhile changes were made  in many areas.  The new school will house about 300 students. Sunshine Coast News, January 27,1976.  fne Coast  Published at Gibsons, B.C. every Tuesday  by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.  Ronald B. Cruice, Publisher.

Local politicians are once  again starting to engage in their annual  bow-wow to discuss one of the Sunshine  Coast's most serious problems ��� stray  dogs.  Two letters of complaint from residents initiated another dog debate in  Sechelt's council chamber and just like  previous occasions when such discussions  took place in council chambers up and  down the Sunshine Coast, nothing was  resolved.  Of course any discussion on stray  dogs always ends up revolving around the  question of who is responsible. While all  the political members engaged in the discussion always end up agreeing that stray  dogs pose a danger to residents, they  also end up agreeing that the problem  is someone else's responsility.  The SPCA has already made it  clear that it is a society for the prevention  of cruelty to animals, and it wants  nothing to do with a dog pound. Both  Gibsons and Sechelt RCMP stated last  year that police officers will not be  spending their time running around after  deviant canines. And the provincial government has informed us that the Domestic Animal Protection Act is. for the  protection of domestic animals and not  for the protection of people.  Last September the regional board  considered adopting a leash bylaw. We  felt at that time such a bylaw would be  ineffective basically because there would  be no one to enforce that bylaw. We still  feel such a bylaw would be ineffective  but we will say that at least it was a step  in the right direction. However, even that  bylaw proposal has been buried in the  ground like an old bone.    .  Out  of the  discussion  in   Sechelt  "council last week came a resolution that"  further talks be held with the village of  Gibsons and the Regional Board in the  hopes of finding some solution to the  stray dog problem. Good. But let's hope  this time the discussions will result in  something concrete.  In the past it's been stated by Gibsons Alderman Kurt Hoehne that any  action taken to control dogs in this area  would require a prqper pound and staff  to run the operation. Also in the past this  newspaper has suggested that the Regional Board seriously consider adopting  the function of dog control with the full  participation of the villages of Gibsons  and Sechelt.  We make that suggestion again.  Oh Vanity  We hear that NBC television has just  paid $250,000 for a new logo. The logo  was designed by one of the top advertising agencies in the United States. It took  seven months to create.  But there's some dispute as to whether NBC will be able to use the logo because a Nebraska educational television  channel has been using a similar logo for  nearly a year. The Nebraska' ETV logo  was designed by a staff member in a few  hours. It cost a few hundred dollars to  create.  We also see that our own CBC has  come up with a new logo. It cost something like $100,000 to create. It's bilingual, we're told. Frankly, we're not  impressed. Not $100,000 worth.  If the CBC insists on enhancing  its public image, why doesn't it pour such  money ..into better quality. Canadian programming?   '''���"'  Oh Vanity, thy name is CBC.  Happy 1984  We are only eight years away from  that fateful year depicted by the English  novelist, George Orwell, who saw the  forces of technology exerting full control  and authority over our minds by 1984.  Indeed, some people would say that 1984  is upon us and that the fundamental  processes of our society have broken  down already.  That may be. We have not achieved  a very good record in dealing with  human goals and most people in the  industrial west feel threatened and powerless in the face of major computer networks, genetic engineering and nuclear  age technology. Underdeveloped nations  are almost equally hopeless in their  attempts to catch up to the industrial  west.  But, without for a moment diminishing the extent of the technological  flood, it may well be that we use this  new science to hide our inability to understated the essential human dimension of  society's needs.  It is just possible that the application of the best we have in technology  could help us solve over-population, inadequate food supplies and energy resource depletion. Technology could probably deal with these if we had the will  to look at the new concepts. Conservation rather than consumption, demands  that need not be always fulfilled, ethics  about supply and pricing are human  decisions that can make technology  workforus;  But it means we must recognize that  Orwellian chaos faces us if we are unwilling to accept social responsibility now.  Technology can either dominate or serve  society. Naturally most of us would  choose service but then we must be prepared to change; to plan and above all to  place technology at the service of  humanity.  To hide from or try to destroy technology is pure ignorance of the human  problem and will undoubtedly push our  society closer to 1984 than any computer  program yet devised.  The world is a perpetual caricature of itself; at every moment it is the mockery and the  contradiction of what it is intending to be.  ���George Santayana (1863 -1952)  FIVE YEARS AGO  Port Mellon mill employees win  the best accident free award  among pulp mills in B.C. for 1970  B.C.

Herewith is the satirical wit of  Lautens:  "Those of us who have been in  the newspaper business for years,  may know nothing about Baker  Lake (or art, for that matter) but  we do know one thing about Eskimo prints: They never get a bad:  preview.

Let's all participate  ' byKARINHOEMBERG  Most of us know that many people in the community participate  in different volunteer activities,  but nobody knows exactly who  does what for whom, and what  seems to be more important, we  know yery little about the silent  minorities. Does this community  have people in need of assistance  without receiving it? Can we improve the quality of life for those  who need a hand as well as for  those who are willing to give  whatever it takes?  More and more people on the  Peninsula are concerned about  and involved in volunteer activities and as the population increases the need for good volunteers will grow. More new services have been introduced to this  area the last few years than in  the previous 25 years, and it  might be the right time now to  stop and ask each other what we  want and what we need.  The Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society in co-operation with the Centre for Continuing Education has planned a  Saturday Information Workshop  on February 7 from 9:30 a.m.  to 1 p.m. in the Sechelt Elementary School music room.  The purpose of this workshop  is to bring present volunteers together with individual citizens  and service organizations to determine the needs in our community.  Helen Roy and Marie Belle Bul-  mer will lead the discussion and  together the group will explore  the need for volunteer action and  the need of citizens to participate  more effectively in their community. How do we as individuals make ourselves heard? How  do we recruit, train, and co-ordinate volunteer activities in an efficient manner? Many questions  about the role of the citizens are  expected to be discussed and we  hope that people who are actively  participating in volunteer work  will contribute to answer some of  the questions.  The Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society has recently  acquired office space on Wharf  Street in Sechelt, where the Socreds previously had their headquarters. The Homemaker service has already moved in while  the mini-bus is still being run  from the home of Mr. and Mrs.  Lewis, and the Senior Citizens are  served from the Health Unit in  Gibsons by Louise Hume.  'A new structure is expected  after April 1, when it is known to  what degree the Resource Society  '   will receive grants.  It is felt by many people that  among the services needed on the  Peninsula are legal aid, increased  Manpower service, co-ordination  of volunteer activities, emergen-  ���- cy programs in case of catastro-  ���; phes, counselling and information  and a drug and alcohol clinic.  Some people would also like to  see a crisis-line, while others  find it valuable if special assistance could be provided to handicapped people in their homes,  like the service presently offered  by two physiotherapists. -  The Centre for Continuing Education is prepared to offer an  educational program for volunteers. Marie Belle Buhner ,and  Helen Roy have promised to be  responsible for this program  which could start with a 20 hour  course. Volunteers would be introduced to subjects like developing active listening skills,  pros and cons of helping and being helped, techniques to deal  with specific problems, etc.  Whatever you think about this  subject, we hope that you will  come and voice your opinion on  February 7, Saturday, at 9:30  a.m. in the Sechelt Elementary  School music room.

First, the Student Council  heeds any old furniture you may  have lying around. A donation  of a couch or a chair is preferred  *. but if you hate to part with a  treasured old article, we might  even buy it for a few dollars. ���  Another little ad concerns the  homecoming.

The situation at Elphinstone  remains dull as exams are just  around the corner. A lot of students are going to be depressed  this Tuesday, because that is  when recommendations are given.

A "business  meeting" was held last week  and we elected a president,,.  Stephen Clayton, and yours truly as vice-president. Treasurer  is Nigel Lawson. One of the major questions was how much to  charge for dues, and, for that  matter, why have dues? It was  concluded that we have a treasurer and therefore must put him  to work. The money will be  used for the purchase of more  chess sets and an upcoming  trip to White Rock to battle  away on that checkerboard.  Having suddenly received  awesome powers (some men are  born, ito achieve greatness,  others get stuck with it) Stephen  and I sat down to make up some  rules. After all the most difficult  thing in the. world is trying to  play chess with somebody always telling you what to move.  So rule one is ho talking. The  rest are basically your standard  chess rules designed to protect  the menbers (or at least to shut  them up).

Letters to the Editor  UNDERSTANDING  Editor: We would like to comment on a letter by Joe Kamp-  man in the January 20 edition of  the Coast News. "The very witty  artistic masterpiece" that Mr.  Kampman commented on was in.  a certain sense quite close to  reality.  The young people in this community are basically very respectful and it's just a few who make  it bad for the rest. Most young  people hold a door, or say excuse me, or step aside if they are  blocking the way. Some will offer  you a chair in a restaurant.  Most use the garbage cans available and most are quite courteous drivers as well as pedestrians.  But then there are the few  who make it bad for the rest of  them. We would like to quote one  classic example that happened  this summer. As a professional  driver I have been made aware  through training of highway safety and I am not unknowledgeable  about driving matters.  One evening last summer I was  driving on North Road towards  Highway 101 and as I was  about to enter the yield corner by .  the Anglican Church a black, late  model Mustang came through the  cut-off head-on. I swerved and hit  the gas and wound up spinning  into the school district maintenance shop parking lot. The other  car proceeded rapidly along North  Road towards Langdale. If I  hadn't taken that five seconds  the young folks in that car and  myself would have been dead or  seriously injured.  This, of course, is an extreme  example, but nevertheless an  example. We would like to say  that we may be in the generation  gap but none of us are really that  far from the other if we all take  the time to stop and . understand. Understanding is the key  word. '���'''.  I have forgiven the young people in that car and thank God  we are still alive. I hope they will  understand what happened and  forgive themselves for what they  did and what they almost did.  ���The R. LATHAM Family.  TAKE CARE  Editor: We have recently retired and moved to Gibsons'.  My hobby is needlework, including knitting and needlepoint. In,  order to realize some remuneration for my work, I placed two  needlepoint pictures and three  pure wool sweaters into Whitaker  House for sale on consignment.   7  One sweater was a plain red  heather pullover, the second  sweater was a beige pullover with  brown and orange diamonds  knitted in the "fairisle" fashion  about the shoulders. The third  sweater was a turquoise zippered  cardigan, again with the "fair-  isle" type of knitting in navy and.  white about the shoulders. -ti  On Saturday, January 17, ' 1  called in to see if any of the  articles had sold. Only the two  pictures and the red pullover  remained. It was presumed by the  attendant that the other two  sweaters must have been sold. On  checking further it was discovered that both were simply stolen;1  I then decided to remove the rest  from Whitaker House. I went up:  on Wednesday, January 21 and,  would you believe, the red heather sweater had been stolen.  This represents $155. Needless to  say, I picked up my pictures and  left.  The main reason for writing is  that I would urge everyone who  has placed anything at Whitaker  House for sale, to go and check  on their work. Many people, I am  sure, simply believe their articles  have not been sold, whereas, I am  sure that there is a great deal  of shoplifting going on. There is  supervision only in one room and  I have always found the atten-  . dant to be most engrossed in her  own hobby of knitting, crocheting or whatever.  Good luck to the other trusting  hobbyists.  ���MRS.M.REES.  ���:ri  ���n!'  '.'Of.  CiJI  hi)  ;;;")  ' -' 1/  'iV.  l\'V  ������:iT  ���������.*  T'-��  .   ��� !

With program and scheduling changes on the horizon, this  question was put to managing  director Bill Armstrong during his  visit to the Sunshine Coast last  Sunday.  One thing the program director  in confident abput is that whichever way the publicly owned radio  network is going philosophically,  its popularity, he feels, is going  up.  Five or six years ago was the  low period for radio. Everyone  was pre-occupied with television  and consequently radio, especially CBC radio, was "hanging by  a thread" to use Armstrong's  own words.  They say it started with Gzow-  ski with his "This Country in the  Morning" and if he drew an audience of under 30s ��� rare for the  CBC ��� then that, as far as the  brass in Toronto were concerned,  is where the future of CBC radio  was.  It also became apparent that  "As It Happens" was drawing  younger audiences and since that  program occupied the prime time  slot of 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the next  logical step was to try and keep  that audience after 8 p.m.  As Armstrong put it: "Do we  dare challenge TV at this prime  time?"  One of the proposed changes  for CBC radio is to move the  strip programming now schedul  ed weeknights from 9:30 to 11  p.m. into the prime time slot of  8 to 9:30 p.m. That involves such  programs as Touch The Earth,  and Country Roads, which according to Armstrong, not only  draw the younger audiences, but  the regular 90 minute strip format  programming ��� a bone of contention for some CBC listeners  ��� also tends to keep those audiences faithful. What will attract  those listeners who, say on any  given night, do not like either As  It Happens or Country Roads, is a  good question. Relegated to the  TV, maybe.  It's on such nights that the critics  will say the CBC radio is not living up to its original mandate  which states the CBC should offer  a balanced fare of information,  enlightenment, for people of all  types and with all interests. But  then again, how do you please  those people who want to listen to  the Chicoutimi Judo championship on Sunday mornings. Armstrong admits that he doesn't .  have the answer to the problem  of pleasing all the people all the  time. It's' a difficult mandate to  live up to.  In general, Armstrong says, the  priority of CBC radio is information. By information he means a  first class in-depth around-the-  world news service. To that end,  he says, the CBC may be providing more time for news programs  and increasing the staff news  reporters.  After the news priority, comes  Flying Circus  Lovers of the zany British TV  series, "Monty Python's Flying  Circus" which has been seen here  for several years, have come to  expect outrageous satire from the  six young men who constitute the  main   force   behind  the   show.  While the series and the first film  made by the group, "And Now  For Something Completely Different"   consist   mainly   of   short  skits and animated blackouts, the  latest film tells a complete story.  "Grail" is often howlingly funny  . and inventive, and even the few  ,. tasteless  or ..unfunny ^moments.  won't  prevent  audiences  from  making this one of the year's  bigger draws. Individual credit is  futile, since everyone performs  with a finely developed sense of  the ridiculous (actually, it's difficult  to  tell  the  actors  apart  since each one  plays multiple  roles and none are identified by  name). Of the six main writers  and performers,  two ��� Terry  Gilliam, an American, and Terry  Jones ��� receive directorial credit  but it's obviously a group effort.  According to the credits, if they  are to be believed (they're as  satirical as anything else), locations were shot in Scotland.  The film, which plays at the  Twilight Theatre January 29 to 31  is rated mature.  A hard hitting action drama of  one man s fight against corruption  in the long-haul trucking business  comes to the same theatre February 1, 2 and 3, with "White  Line Fever."  This plot may be a throwback to  screen classics of the past, like  the 1940 "They Drive by Night"  with Humphrey Bogart, but it is  an original screenplay by Ken  Friedman and Jonathon Kaplan.  Kaplan also directed the story,  which revolves around conflicts  of independent truck drivers who  dare to oppose organized forces  which control the trucking industry.  The film is restricted and a ���  warning of brutal violence and  coarse language has been issued.  the human spirit, the enrichment  of life. This is music, drama, the  arts programs. Armstrong feels  that CBC radio is the only communicator of what he calls serious  music and he adds that there is  certainly going to be more of  that. Mozart, he says, doesn't  have to be dark and heavy.  . And while CBC AM may be becoming more popular, or, as some  would put it, appealing to the  masses, perhaps in the same way  "Maude" or "All in the Family"  appeals to the masses, the FM  side of the network is going to  get the cream of the crop. AM already .covers 98.9 percent of the  country, either through CBC stations or affiliates; FM covers a  little more than 60 percent.  But FM has an advantage because of the good quality transmission. Thus the trend will be to  program the 'better' music and  drama on that network.  "That assumes," says Armstrong, "That FM listeners are  more serious."  Therein lies the rub for people  such as Maryanne West, one of  the Sunshine Coast Friends of the  CBC, who feels that Canadian  listeners who do not receive CBC  FM, that's 40 percent of us, will  never have the opportunity of experiencing this serious programming.  Perhaps another problem foreseeable with FM is that it's going  to be more centralized. Armstrong says it's because of the  high cost of producing FM programs that most of the productions will have to come from Toronto with other broadcast centres  making their contributions. In effect then, what we end up with is  two networks with two different  types of programming ��� FM for  serious listeners and AM for what  I'll call the not-so-serious listeners.  There's not a thing wrong with  that as long as both these networks, can ��� and I quote part of  the mandate ��� be extended to all  parts of Canada.  r  i  ���  i  i  i  i  i  i  i  i  i  i  i  i  i  i  ���  i  i  i  i  i  i  J & C ELECTRONICS  ft APPLIANCES ltd.

The meeting was chaired  by Volunteer Director Mrs. Eve  Moscrip. with Mrs Madeline  Grose doing the secretarial honors. Guests were Mrs. Evelyn  Olsen, President of the Co-ordinating council, and Mrs. Charlotte  Raines, Auxiliary representative  to the board. Representing the  Hospital Board and administrator  was Mrs. Dana Kearney, Director  of Nursing, Head Nurse for the  second floor Mrs. Val Morrison,  and Activity Aide Mrs. Lillian  Peters.  There was a good representation of volunteers from the six  auxiliaries. The Directors report  revealed that 5,081 hours were  put in last year by these red  frocked workers, for inservice.  The Thrift Shop recorded 4,024  rewarding hours, reported Mrs.  Bessie Rowberry, chairman for  this thriving business.  Mrs. Moscrip's annual report  highlighted the many in-service  activities for 1975.  Special thanks went to the  Chairmen of the In-services, and  to Sue Beaven for the Gift shop  in the hospital. Thanks also went  to Muriel Eggins for hairdres-  sing, that touch that means so  much to the patients; Mary Redman and her successor Molly  Smith in Extended Care; Madeline Grose for the Library that travels the wards; Bette Shaw and  Maureen Hall for flower care in  patients' rooms; Judy Killam,  baby photos for that first picture; Jean Longley for reactivating the Junior Volunteers, and to  all the ladies who gave so willingly of their time.  The newest program which  starts this week is Physiotherapy  hostesses, aiding Mr. Ian Hunter.  A great vote of thanks went to  Mrs. Eve Moscrip for her two  years as Director.

Branch' number 38'cif the Old  ��� Age Pensioners Organization in  their annual report notes that the  total membership of the organization is now 158. Ten meetings  were held during 1975 and there  -was a fair turnout for most of the  meetings. It was reported that  . weather was very much a factor in  determining the attendance of the  meetings.  Highlights of the year were  : two dinner parties, one on St.  ! Valentine's Day under the aus-  ��� pices of the Canadian Legion,  Branch No. 109, and the other  was presented by the local Lions  Club on November 28. Both events turned out to be gala affairs  and were thoroughly enjoyed and  appreciated by all.  ��� There were four large money  raising events, a spring tea in  April, a bake sale in July, a bingo  in August, and a garage sale in  November. All four of these  turned out to be great successes,  ���    and the proceeds helped swell the  building fund.  Members spent the summer recess at will this year. A handful  - v of the most knowledgeable and  very competent members devoted  all their time and efforts to erecting a new building, and the rest  of the members owe a special vote  .of gratitude for their outstanding accomplishment. The foundations and shell are now completed.  I There was only one bus trip,  to the PNE, and there was also  a trip to Squamish. Recreation  consisted of carpet and five pin  i ..bowling, as weli as bingo.   .  The" branch "extends a vote of  thanks to those who so ably served on the various committees, by  giving their time and efforts to  the good of the various causes.  By the' co-operation of all concerned we were able to accomplish something worthwhile, and  enjoy good fellowship. .  Let us now give some thought  to those members who cannot be  with us today, all those who  are sick and ailing. And let us  welcome the new members of the  executive who are taking office  for the new year, and planning  for the months ahead.  much lamb  World statistics reveal that  Canadian lamb consumption is  one of the lowest in the world.  Perhaps our northern climate  explains our preference for beef  and pork. Yet the delicate, delicious flavor of fresh Canadian  lamb makes it a choice meat.  Canadian lamb is most plentiful  from September to December.  Good quality lamb has a smooth,  creamy-white fat tinged with pink  The meat is fine-textured and  rather velvety. The bones are reddish in color and fairly porous.  When buying lamb, check the  grade which is indicated by a  ribbon-like mark of different  colors. Canada A grade (red) is  the highest quality lamb, with fat  levels varying from Canada Al,  the lowest fat covering, to Canada  A4 the highest. The other grades  are Canada B (blue) and Canada  C (brown); Canada D (black)  which applies to animals older  than 14 month of age. The latter  grade is also subdivided into four  levels indicating quality. Canada  E (black) represents mature male  animals. Canada D3, Canada D4  and Canada E are used for manufacturing purposes and do not appear in retail stores.  To some Canadians, lamb is  thought of as a special occasion  meat, but its many tasty cuts can  also provide appetizing everyday  meals for your table. To help you  in doing so, Food Advisory Services, Agriculture Canada suggest a cooking timetable for lamb  roasts. Complement the delicate  flavor of lamb with Mint Sauce  and a traditional Irish Stew served with Dumplings.  IRISH STEW  2 pounds stewing lamb  2 teaspoons salt  '/��teaspoon pepper  1 clove garlic, crushed  '/a teaspoon thyme  4 cups water  1 onion, sliced  6 medium carrots, cut in 1 inch  pieces  6 medium potatoes, cut in eighths,  lA cup flour  Trim fat from meat and cut  meat in 1 '/2-inch pieces. Add seasonings and water. Cover and sim  mer (boneless stewing lamb V* to  1 hour; bone-in stewing lamb 1 to  VA hours). Add vegetables and  cook until meat and vegetables  are tender, about Vi hour longer. -  Combine flour with a little cold  water and blend into stew. Cook  until thickened, (about 5 minutes)  DUMPLINGS  2 cups sifted all-purpose flour  4 teaspoons baking powder  1 teaspoon salt  Vi cup shortening ���  1 cup milk  Sift dry ingredients. Cut in  shortening until mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Stir in  milk to form soft dough. Drop by  spoonfuls on top of hot stew.  Cover and cook without lifting lid  for 15 to 20 minutes.

May 7-9, to  help celebrate that historic event.'  An exciting program is being  'arranged    under    direction    of  Lawrie Wallace, a former student  ��� and teacher at the school and  -now British  Columbia's deputy  ���.provincial secretary.  "We'd like to see every former  . student of Victoria High here for  the reunion," Wallace says,  "especially any^who attended the  school at the Fort-Yates-Fern-  wood road location  Already well over 1,000 have  registered for the reunion and  Wallace predicts "at least 6,000"  will probably be here in May.

Debris clean-up underway  by ROB DYKSTRA  The minimum we need for 1976  is about $200,000 says W. R.  Bowden, co-ordinator of the interim debris board set up by governments and the forest industry to try and eliminate the problem of debris in our waters.  And with both the provincial  and federal governments announcing strict austerity programs, the future for the infant  clean-up program is unstable to  say the least.  The debris board, made up  specifically of representatives  of the forest industry, truck loggers, the B.C. Forest Service,  the National Harbors Board, the  Fraser River Harbor Commission,  the Federal Environmental Protection Service, Western Forest  Products Laboratory, and the  Council of Forest Industries,  has already been at work in the  Howe. Sound area to eliminate  dangerous and unaesthetic debris.  The clean-up operation took ad-.  vantage of high tides last month  when a large amount of debris  was boomed and taken to Hillside  for sorting and burning. Using  local beachcombers, debris was  collected and picked over for salvageable pulpwood. Any logs that  are worth money, says Bowden,  may be taken by the beachcombers..  Eliminating the hazard of deadheads, taking some of the debris  off our beaches is a worthwhile  program and it certainly deserves  favorable support from all sectors of government and industry.  But still, the problem is money.  If the program has to be halted  because of lack of funds, Bowden  says, then the whole thing will  have to start again right at the  beginning. Any progress that has  been made so far would be lost  because the build-up of the debris  would not wait for man. And as  Bowden points out, the debris  clean-up cannot take place overnight. It has to be a long term  program.  Apart from cleaning up our  shorelines, the program also tries  to stop the debris problem at its  source. That source is the Fraser  River. Bowden explains that one-  third of all the debris.comes out  of the Fraser. He said 365,000  cubic feet of lumber were taken  out of the Fraser during the  freshet early last summer. And  the $200,000 mentioned earlier  does not even include the Fraser  River. During last summer's  sweep $350,000 alone was needed  for that clean-up.  Besides cleaning up the Howe  Sound area from Gibsons to Port  Mellon, the program also operated in the Ladysmith area. It will  be extended further south, Bowden says,'if and when sufficient  funds become available. He adds  that officials in Prince Rupert  have also asked the debris board  if the clean-up program can be  extended to that area.  The debris program, then, is  waiting for two things to happen:  The high tides which occur for a  short period in the winter and for  another short period in the summer, and the money which may or  may not occur at all.  Bowden says the slumping forest industry is not likely to hand  over large amounts of money and  even so, it could never fund the  program without adequate government financial assistance. The  board doesn't have much money  at the moment and it's a matter of  sitting back patiently and waiting-  One question this reporter  posed to Mr. Bowden: Will the  Georgia Strait clean-up program  mean an end to beachcombing?  Forest companies are policing  their booms more carefully,  many logs will never see salt  water because they'll be stopped  in the Fraser, and the clean-up  program will sweep lip anything  that's left.  "Ultimately it should put an  end to the beachcombers ��� but  they're still in business now,"  said Bowden. He adds that the  program aims mainly to clean up  "debris" which indicates that  any choice logs around are still  there for the taking.

Curling news  Gibsons Winter Gub curling  rink has had a very successful  first week of operation. It started  out with curling scheduled for  three nights a week, but due to a  growing interest, it is now operating five nights a week. Leagues  have had to be expanded as there  are 80 teams in operation and a  few are still coming in.  This has been a very busy  organizational week for Art Craze  and his draw committee of Mar-  lene Bjornson, Haig Maxwell,  and Jean Craze. Congratulations  for a job well done.  The club is currently thinking  about starting a host committee  similiar to the one in operation at  the Golf course in order to give  Gus Schneider some time off. Gus  is a very dedicated worker and  officer of the club, but he can't  be expected to do everything by  himself.   Members  of the   club  may expect a phone call in the  near future regarding this matter,  and are asked to help out the club  and Gus in any possible way. It is  through volunteer help that the  club fees are kept to a minimum.  High School and Elementary  School physical education classes  have started curling, and a high  school after school league has  also started. Instructors for high  school curling were arranged by  Bernie Parker and the teacher-  sponsors have expressed their  appreciation.  Now that the season has started  work parties will take place only  on Tuesday evenings and Saturdays.  Remember, the curling rink is  for rent on Saturdays and Sundays for S16 a sheet for 2 hours.  At $2 per person it's a cheap  evening out, and good exercise.  Allot of people around Gibsons find themselves getting  strong arms since the opening of the Gibsons Winter  I  Club curling rink/ Here, a curler sweeps a rock into the  house.  Gibsons Lanes  News from the alley  by BUD MULCASTER  Only two 300 games last week  and both by the ladies. Alice  Smith bowled a 333 single in the  Gibsons A league and June  Frandsen rolled seven strikes in a  row for a 312 single in the Legion  league. Kathy Clark had high  triple of the week for the ladies  with 756 in the Gibsons A league  and Ken Skytte broke out of his  slump with a 708 triple in the Legion league for high triple for the  men.  We are in the process of having  our rolloff for the Four Steps to  Stardom Tournament in our YBC  leagues. The first eight games  our youth bowlers roll in January  depict the order of finish with the  high average bowler going as a  single. The Juniors have finished  their eight games and the top  sue finishers in order are: for  the girls, Dawne Atlee, Michele  Solinsky, Shannon McGivern,  Ilona Hirschfelder, Gwen Mc-  Connell and Loriann Horsman.  For the boys, David Atlee, Grant  Gill, Geoff Butcher, Jamie Gill,  Geoff Spence and Mike Maxfield.  We are taking singles only for  the Seniors and they are Ann  Carson and Jeff Mulcaster.  The Juniors bowl at the Commodore Lanes in Vancouver. The  21 obtain grade 12  Last fall twenty-one students  from 19 to 50 signed up for -the  General Educational Development (GED) test to obtain a Grade  12 Equivalency Certificate. Twenty students passed and only one  student failed math, but passed  the other four tests.  More and more employers demand Grade 12 as a condition for  employment and the Centre for  Continuing Education has therefore scheduled a second test session on Friday, February 20 at  6 p.m.  Applicants must be at least 19  years old. have resided in B.C.  for at least six months and been  out of school for at least one  full academic year.  Many adults who did not graduate from secondary school may  have acquired skills, through  study and work experience,, at  or above secondary school level.  The GED tests provide an oppor-.  tunity for these people to earn an  official document stating they  have a Grade 12 Secondary  School equivalency standing  which may assist them in qualifying for better jobs, for promotions  within their own organizations or  in applying for admission to post-  secondary educational institutions. Some people may wish to  take the tests for personal satisfaction .  The Generel Educational Development Tests are a series of  five comprehensive examinations  me a  push,  my  tery's gone flat.  in the areas of English composition, social studies, natural sciences, literature and mathematics.  The tests are made up of multiple choice questions. That  means the student marks a space  on the answer sheet to show  which answer he or she thinks  best for each question. The tests  are designed to show the student's ability to understand and  reason rather than to test on facts  and memory.  February 2 is the last day to  register for the test. For further  information and sample questions  please contact the School Board  office. 886-2225, Karin Hoemberg  ELPHEVENTS  (Continued from Page 2)  Make a note of March 5 because that's going to be  "Grease Day." There will be a  dance that night in the gym,  featuring Teen Angel and the  Rocking Rebels.  The Elphevents, our school  newspaper, has put out this semester's last paper, but I'll be  back, because I signed up for  good old writing 11 again. Mr.  George Matthews and myself,  co-owners of the notorious  "Elephantstone" T-shirts franchise, have managed to secure  a loan from the Student Council  to start the business up again.  Sales should start in February  with each shirt selling at $3.50  each. A bargain a that price!  Order yours now, only 50 will  be available.  Getting back to writing, even  the writing 11 class is not exempt from tests. Mr. Matthews  gave us the question last week:  What is a newspaper? That  could be rephrased into what  is OUR newspaper? Our newspaper is the Elphevents, this is  the Elphevents, and that is all.  Seniors are at Nick Bailey's  Victoria Lanes and the Bantams  roll at North Shore Bowl.  We have some budding young  stars in our youth program and  this tournament is good experience for them. We try to teach  them the proper method along  with the proper attitude of bowling, with sportsmanship being a  large part of attitude. Taking  part and trying is more important than winning.

On January 11, Wanderers travelled to False Creek Park in Vancouver to play the Sucksager  Soccer Club. Gibsons fielded several new players since some of the  regulars are on vacation, but this  did not impair the team's performance.  Gibsons led 4-0 after the half  and coasted from there on in,  scoring an easy 5-1 victory.  Excellent games were turned in  by Jan de Reus, who scored three  goals, Dave Neuman, and Denny  Hollis.  On January 18, Sechelt Renegades travelled to Langdale to  play the Wanderers. A referee  was imported from Vancouver to  handle the match and after  checking the field declared it  playable.  From the opening whistle, it  was a hard, fast game with only  the pitch slowing the action.  Gibsons scored first when Angel  Juarez took a long pass and slipped a low shot into the Renegade  net. About 10 minutes later Karry  Eldred converted a corner kick to  give Gibsons a 2-0 lead.  However the Renegades were  not to be counted out. Howie Joe  scored on an indirect free kick  just before the half to leave the  half time score 2-1 for Gibsons.  The second half started with  both teams displaying tight  checking. Sechelt got the first  break when they were awarded  an indirect free kick in the Gib-  Food cost study released  sons penalty area. While the defenders were still setting up  Howie Joe blasted the ball into  the goal, tying the game. Both  teams grappled for the go-ahead  goal but it was not until the  75 minute mark that Gibsons  broke through and scored. On a  long pass by Mike Musgrove,  Angel Juarez scored his second  goal of the game.  The game was hard fought till  the final whistle, ending 3-2,  Gibsons.  The entire Gibsons team gave  their best effort, but Kerry Eldred, Bjorn Bjornson, Mike Musgrove and Ken Verhulst played  excellent games.

The  twin evils of high inflation  and high unemployment  are products of state intervention.  Ottawa encourages  public spending by lending  Canada Pension Fund  money to provincial  governments at low rates  so that they don't have to  borrow in the capital  markets.

The report entitled, "Factors Contributing to the  Cost of Food in British Columbia"  was commissioned by the Council  during the Spring of 1975.  The Council, comprised of producers, wholesalers, retailers,  labor and consumer representatives, was formed to advise the  Minister of Agriculture on matters affecting food production in  British Columbia. It became concerned with statements being  made regarding the effect of cost  factors in food production and  subsequently commissioned Robin Smith Consultants to prepare a  preliminary study to determine  the individual major cost factors  contributing  to the final  retail  Be prepared  What does an exhilarating  game of basketball, tennis, soccer or hockey demand of a player? i  First, one must be mentally  prepared for it.

But there's no joke to either the  question or the answer. What  David H. Brown did with the  bottles was build a unique and  surprisingly practical house on  the shores of Kootenay Lake in  West Kootenay country.  Brown was a funeral director  who moved to the Creston area  after 35 years in the funeral  business in Alberta. He was fascinated by the idea that empty  embalming fluid Bottles ��� with  their rectangular, brick-like  shapes ��� could be put to some  good use instead of being thrown  on the garbage heap.  He consulted with construction experts, who could see no  practical reason why the bottles  could not be used. And so he set  to work collecting bottles from all  across western Canada. It took  him 20 years to amass 500,000 of  them. Then he began work on his  dream home.  The idea was less strange than  it might at first seem. With their  caps on, the bottles contain a  dead air space that provides excellent insulation. The bottles are  strong and, because of their rectangular shape, fit together readily to make walls.  Brown's house was built in the  shape of a cloverleaf on a rock  carefully chosen to give support  P*&0mm0*mm0mmm0mtmmamm0vi0vi0w0t*0m0m*m**wmmta0*  DON'T TAKE CHANCES  '7   '  1   MAKE  t\'- ���  pi'  1    A HIT  1   EVERY  If., ' ���  r.

The walls, cedar-lined, are  curved, with the bricks cemented  together like the spokes of a  wheel.  The house was intended as a  private dwelling. But the structure attracted' so many people  that it was opened to the public  during the summer months; in  the winter, it still serves as a  dwelling.  David Brown died Five years  ago, but his family still shows the  house and grounds to a horde of  visitors every year.

Mr. McLachlan cites the pre-  Christmas postal strike as the reason for the poor return on the initial appeal, since the mailing of  the seals was delayed for more  than a month as a result of the  disruption in postal service.  Funds contributed to the  Christmas Seal campaign are  used to assist in the construction of medical facilities, to finance research projects into res  piratory disease, to educate the  public as well as medical professionals, and to provide rehabilitation for sufferers of chronic obstructive lung disease.  The Sunshine Coast Christmas  Seal chairman is Mrs. Pat Murphy of Halfmoon Bay.  CHIMNEY FIRE  .

Outdoors  Gravel pits not welcome  by JOHN HIND-SMITH  Some years ago, in 1971, to be  exact, there was a big upheaval  which disturbed the usual tranquility of the Sunshine Coast.  The cause was not, as you might  expect, an earthquake or anything as exciting as that, but a  proposal by Ocean Cement or  Construction Aggregates or some  such outfit (I seem to recall  the name changed a few times  during the said upheaval) to lease  a piece of land from our friendly  Indian Band in Sechelt for the  purpose of removing gravel to  build those concrete edifaces or  monstrosities in Vancouver.  This was to have been a very  large operation employing machinery similar to that used by  the Kaiser coal open cast mining  pit in the Kootenays. The idea  was approved in principle, whatever that might mean, by the Regional Board and by a segment of  the public who were under the erroneous impression that this was  going to supply much needed employment or, on the other hand,  could only see it from the dollars  and cents point of view without  regard for the long term consequences.  Fortunately, common sense  prevailed on this particular occasion and the whole thing was  dropped. But one fact which emerged at that time was that in  fact we are sitting on the largest  deposit of clean gravel existing  within reasonable distance of the  city of Vancouver. This being the  case it is a sure bet that those  people interested in such things  have not bowed to the wishes of  a bunch of country bumpkins for  good and one can make a pretty  safe bet they are cooking up  some wonderful scheme that very  few people could turn down.  There are already two foot  holds established, one in Porpoise  Bay and one at Hillside, the first  operated by Rivtow Straits and  the second by Construction Aggregates (there's that name  again).  I understand that a great deal  of money has already been spent  in the plant at Hillside but .that  there are questions being asked  about the amount of suspended  solids that are going to find their  way into Howe Sound and here  we come to the crunch. There  must be quite a few people  who would say that gravel pits are  not welcome at all in our midst  but others will say it's okay  as long as a tight rein is maintained on their operations.  Smaller pits are springing up  all over the place and though they  may be small now, they have a  habit of growing like Topsy and  before you know where you are  there is yet another scar on our  landscape which will take years,  to eradicate.  Members of Gibsons Wildlife  Club will be gratified to know that  the Regional Board does find time  to do other things besides conjuring up gun bylaws to duplicate  those already in existence and  harassing would be log house  builders. In their wisdom, the  board has produced a bylaw  (what, another?) to cover the gravel pit situation. Only quite recently they objected strongly to  the amount of suspended solids  that the Hillside operation proposed to dump into Howe Sound,  and the board has enough power  to close down a plant which does  not comply with their regulations.  There is a lady, Elspeth Armstrong,   who   is   trying   to   do  Cable Vision changes  Coast Cable Vision subscribers, with one exception, need not  be concerned about the possibility  of losing their present selection  of TV channels, according to a  company spokesman.  The proposed addition of two  more CBC television stations for  south-western British Columbia  has created a great deal of concern amongst cable subscribers  in the Greater Vancouver and Victoria areas. The concern arises  out of the fact that most of the  present American channels presently received on the regular TV  dial may have to be "bumped"  to non-standard assignments to  make room for the Canadian  stations which the CBC has applied for ��� Channel 10 in Victoria and UHF Channel 26  (French) in Vancouver.  In Vancouver, local channels 2,  8 and 12 are presently reassigned  to Channels 3. 11 and 13 due to  technical reasons and cable  companies have in effect already  filled the standard VHFdial.  Western Approaches Ltd. was  licensed in mid-1975 to provide  Vancouver with its first UHF station and is scheduled to be broadcasting in September of 1976.  The Greater Vancouver cable  operators have proposed to carry  this new station ��� UHF Channel  21 ���on Cable 7 and move Channel 7to cable position 12.  Coast Cabievision states that  even though there are lots of ad  ditional channels on the UHF  dial, thay are not used because  UHF freguencies start at 440  megahertz and present day cable  technology permits the use of  upto300 megahertz only.  Coast Cable Vision systems in  Sechelt and Gibsons have at  present two and three spare channels respectively.  Considering that Western  Approaches' Channel 21 is  already licensed and assuming  that the Canadian Radio-Television Commission will license the  two TV .channels proposed by the  CBC, the channel assignments for  Sechelt and Gibsons could be as  follows:  Chan. Rec.  CBC Ch. 2, Vancouver  Community Channel  ABC Ch. 4, Seattle  NBC Ch. 5, Seattle  6��� CTV Ch. 6, Victoria  7��� CBS Ch. 7, Seattle  8��� CTV Ch. 8, Vancouver  9��� PBS Ch. 9, Seattle  10��� CBC Ch. 10, Victoria  11���CBC French, Ch. 26. Vane.  12��� CBSCh. 12, Bellingham  13��� Western Approaches,  Ch. 21, Vancouver.  As can be seen-in the layout  above the only channel lost would  be Channel 11, Tacoma on the  Sechelt system.  The foregoing also assumes  that the lower-power UHF stations will be receivable at Coast  Cable Vision's antenna sites.

R.C. Winterburn  Area Assessor  something towards making Howe  Sound a national recreation area.  AH that she is asking for really  is that some teeth be put into  existing legislation which our  politicians have made themselves, and that these laws be  enforced. That doesn't sound like  too much to ask for but just try  it and see what happens. You will  be switched around from department to department, from one  bureaucratic level to another and  will probably finish up as a raving  lunatic or just another statistic who has done the rounds and  been driven by sheer frustration  into the ranks of the apathetic,  so called, couldn't care less,  public.  I would like to wish Mrs. Armstrong all the luck in the world  and would like to suggest that  the Regional board should be applauded for their efforts to have  Construction Aggregates clean up  their operation before they even  start. I find it rather hard to visualize a recreation area having a  couple of stinky old pulp mills  and. a chemical and industrial  centre like Squamish, living in  harmony, but then the age of  miracles is not over and maybe  cleaning up a potential gravel operation will be one step in the  right direction.  It is to be hoped that the  new members of the Regional  Board will help the board come  down from Cloud Nine and listen  to and would you believe it, act,  on the wishes of the people,  who elected them.  It might be of interest to note  that when the gravel bylaw comes  into effect, in other words when  it has been approved by the great  white fathers in Victoria, the royalties collected from every cubic  yard (or its metric equivalent) of  gravel will be used to supplement  the budget of the Regional Board  Parks and Recreation committee,  or whatever it might be termed.  There's food for thought here  depending on how one looks at  these things. On the one hand the  more gravel that is removed,  the more money is available  for parks and recreation while on  the other hand we go gaily on and  desecrate our country side in order to subsidize our parks function, at the expense of our countryside ! Think about it.  How's that for a philosophical argument to finish off  with.
