Board  rejects  ferry  report  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has passed a resolution  intended to clarify the Board's  position on a recently publicized  "internal report" by District  Planner Adrian Stott recommending among other ideas that the  Board consider a system of class  fares, seasons tickets and higher  vehicle fares.  The resolution passed by the  Board on Thursday night stressed  that this report was meant as "a  proposal for discussion by the  Board and not as a public document or statement of Board  policy." The Board also stated  they hoped this resolution would  dispell the fears of many of the  local residents who were disturbed by the rumours of higher vehicular fares.  The main points of the resolution  passed by the  Board  on  Thursday night included:  ���a statement that the SCRD opposes any substantial raising of  fares tobonafide residents,  ���that they supportan alternative  system of track transportation,  ^that they recommend the consideration of resident, lanes accessible to bonafide residents arriving 30 minutes prior to sailing  time.  ���that the present system of commuter cards has been subject to  abuses and that the solution to  this problem would be to transfer  the authority to issue these cards  to the respective council or the  .Regional District.

Committee  will not  include  parent  The school board last week  adopted a policy for the hiring of  school administrators but one  trustee isn't very happy with it.  An amendment of the policy  originally proposed does not give  the public an immediate input,  said Trustee Claus Spiekermann  critically. He voiced strong objection to the amendment presented  by Trustee Maureen Clayton  which called for the elimination of  a parent' representative on the  selection committee.  According to Trustee Clayton,  school board trustees already represent the parents and adding a  further parent representative to  the selection committee would  only be duplication.  :"piekermann argued that; it  was important to give parents a  direct input into the committee  and th >t the hiring of a new principal n ist involve a formalized  democra ic process.  ���; He saic the proposed policy,  adopted fr>m similar policy already hi.exitence in Vancouver  school district;, had been studied  by trustees for some time and "I  am curious abo it the centralist  thought of thinking here now."  Spiekermann told the board it  is important for people to have  confidence in a school principal  and it is also important for them  to feel that they have had their  say regarding the hiring of such a  person.,  The policy with the amendment  to eliminate direct input from a  parent representative was passed  by a vote of four to two.

Student poll objects to board decision  l9 ROB DYKSTRA  " Students" at HpMnstone Sec-~  ondary school are angry at the  school board.  They feel they're being  ignored.  For the past few weeks Elphie  students have been protesting  the fact that adults attending a  homecoming dance this Satur-.  day night will be allowed to  wear street shoes on the floor  of the new gymnasium.  The students are mad because they were told right from  the start they couldn't wear  shoes in the gym. And they  didn't. Elphinstone students  have had to do without a gymna  sium for several years after the  "fire destroyed the old school. As  any student will tdl you, they  have since taken pride in their  new gym and students police  each other to make sure no one  wears street shoes that could  damage the hardwood floor.  Last* Friday a group of students headed by Grade eleven  student Barb Wilson initiated  a survey to see how many students actually opposed the  school board's earlier decision  to allow street shoes, alcohol,  and cigarettes in the gymnasium this Saturday night.  The poll indicated that 642  students were opposed and 59  were in favor, j  ~ ^ n >  The poll was taken as a last  ditch effort to get school trustees to change their minds on  the matter. But they don't hold  much hope.  Some students said Friday  afternoon that they don't have  much hope because the school  board has already indicated to  them that any poll or petition  would end up in the waste  basket.  In fact, the students held a  meeting recently with School  Board Chairman Celia Fisher.  While Mrs. Fisher .is usually an  open-minded and reasonable  person, the students came away  jtirqm that meeting with the impression that she laughed at  them and their suggestion that  these former Elphie students  attending the dance should take  off their shoes in the gym and do  their smoking and drinking in  the cafeteria.  The students want to make it  dear: they are not against the  community use of schools. But  they are opposed to what one  student called *'being kept under the table", and they are also  opposed to being the victims of  Vthe    school    board's    double  standards.  Alice McSweeney, Director of  the Sunshine Coast Community  Resources Society informed the  regional district at its Thursday  night meeting in Sechelt that  the provincial government's plan  to curtail funding will mean the  loss of a $1400 a month grant  from the provincial Department of  Human Resources.  Mrs. McSweeney told the  board that at a recent meeting  with officials of the Department  of Human Resources, she had received assurances that most of  the major programs on the Sunshine Coast would still be supported by provincial funds.   .  She said the resource society  has applied to the province to  retain fundings on various other  programs making it clear to the  province that some of those programs are staffed by local volunteers.  Commenting.later, Mrs. McSweeney said the society has not  received an absolute no on the  question of funding but she added  that "it doesn't look too optimistic.". She said the decision would  probably depend on the state of  the provincial budget which is to  be tabled in the legislature:.  ;:March25:":v/-^77^ >:���;*#��� '::-r.-^;.  Mrs. McSweeney indicated to  the board Thursday that the major problem now facing the Community Resources Society is the  upkeep of the newly opened Sechelt office.' She feels it will be  necessary for the society to look  for new smaller premises. Until  recently the board had operated  out of private homes and Mrs.  McSweeney was quite adamant  that they could not return to this  kind of operation because of the  inconvenience to the staff of  the various projects.  Among the projects that seem  safe from cancellation are the  Minibus, used to transport senior  citizens from their homes to hos-  : pital,. doctor and other necessary  appointments, and the Home-  maker Service which is designed  to provide company and help with  household chores for the housebound senior citizens in the district. It was also hoped that a  planned medical and legal volunteer referral centre will be allowed to go ahead.  Mrs. McSweeney stated that  the society will continue to aid the  expansion of community services  and asked the Regional District  for a letter stating support of the  Community Resource Society's  programs. The.beard agreed to  supply the letter and Chairman  John McNevin noted that the hostility shown by other Regional  Districts towards the Community  Resources Boards had never been  evident on the Sunshine Coast.  The board also agreed that the  services that had been supplied  by the society had been most  beneficial to the district.  Minibus to stay  The Operating Committee of the  Minibus assures the residents of  the Sunshine Coast that the  Minibus will continue to function.  An earlier announcement by  Human Resources Minister Bill  Vander Zalm indicated that all  funding for the province's resource boards would be'curtail-  ed and some residents of the  Sunshine Coast 7were alarmed  that the;' minibus service would  be halted. This is not the case.  The provincial government  recognizes that the minibus is  providing an important and  much needed service to the  community and have guaranteed its continued funding. The  Minibus Committee has assurance from the medical profession that the minibus is serving  a vital role to the Medical Clin  ics in this area.  In the past 15 months, the  minibus has carried 9,412 passengers, and travelled 40,257  miles, enabling citizens to avail  themselves of the services of the  medical clinics, hospital treatments, dental care, chiropractic treatments and a host of  other facilities related to human  needs, the committee reported  in a press release issued Friday.  ' ; "It has also been a real boon  to the patients in the Extended Care Unit of die hospital,  they have been, on picnics, to  concerts and other outings  which has meant so much to  diem, to feel they still belong  to the community, and have a  part in it;"  The minibus services about 26  agencies on the Sunshine Coast.  '*<���! *w  Stop meddling ��� SCRD  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has agreed to support a  letter being circulated by the  Powell River Regional District  and addressed to the Minister of  the Environment that calls for an  end to Provincial Government  meddling in the planning function  of the Regional Districts.  The Powell River Board is particularly worried over a land  freeze on 10,000 acres of Crown  Land on the Malaspina Peninsula  that the government keeps promising but so far has failed to  release.  In the letter to the SCRD the  Powell River Regional District  also hoped this protest would lead ���  to meaningful discussions with  the Lands Branch on the subject  of the obvious duplication and  confusion arising from die constant conflict between the planning function of the regional district and the Lands Branch juris  diction over Crown Land.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District gave the letter its full  support and Chairman John McNevin added that on the Sunshine  Coast the Highways Department  has virtually become a planning  department. McNevin said the  Regional District should have the  final say on proposed subdivisions and not the Department of  Highways.  STA p reposals a ccepted  >v��# ��  ���a     f* i *   "��  The Sechelt school board last  week accepted proposals from the  Sechelt Teachers Association  Status of Women Committee that  would ensure that all courses,  programs, activities and clubs  sponsored by the schools would  be open to all students regardless  ofsex.  "The proposals were accepted at  Thursday night's regular board  meeting on the recommendation  of two Status of Women representatives, Becky Mills and Wendy Skapsld, both teachers in this  district.  The proposals accepted by the  board were as follows:  ���That this: district board will  establish specific policy to ensure  that all courses, programs activities, and clubs sponsored by  schools shall be open to a_ students regardless of sex, unless  reasonable cause exists to make  such an arrangement unpractical  or inappropriate.  ���That this district board endorse  a petition for a women's study  course in the secondary schools  of this district.  ���That this district board take an  active role in supporting and implementing through its administration, the Department of  Education memorandum dated  March 17, 1975, pertaining to  equality of opportunity to students in home economics and industrial education courses.  ���That the district board will  make available funds necessary  to compile and distribute lesson  aids prepared by this Status of  Women committee and other  sources; and that the board will  accept the responsibility of distributing these aids through its  administration to aD pertinent  teaching staff.

Sechelt RCMP said Friday that investigations revealed the  cause of the blaze to be arson but police had no suspects. At the'  time of the fire the house was occupied by Rick McCartie. There j  were no injuries resulting from the fire.  Sechelt RCMP are continuing die investigation.  ��� :    ���-���    ;������'���; *.'���.',.'

Police have no suspects.  * * *  Thieves in Gibsons managed to break into four different premises Saturday night or Sunday morning. Gibsons RCMP report  that a quantity of cigarettes was stolen from the Co-op store and  a small amount of change was taken from the Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.  Murray's Pet Shop and the Coast News office were also broken  into but nothing was stolen. Windows were broken in both places  forentry.  Police said the back door of the Co-op store was forced open  forentry. Investigations are continuing. .  Madeira Park wharf ��� the Regional District doesn't want it because the price is too high.  No thanks to federal wharf offer  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District, has unanimously rejected a Small Craft Harbors Branch  suggestion that it consider leasing the government wharves at  Madeira Park and Whiskey  Slough. The board decided the  upkeep fees suggested by the  Small   Craft  Harbours   Branch  were completely unrealistic and  that for the Regional Board to  take over this function would involve too much taxpayers' money  in what should be a federal service.  Pender Harbour director Jack  Paterson led the assault by claiming that if the board agreed to  become involved in the maintenance of these two wharves, they  would also be landed with the  wharves at Secret Cove, Garden  Bay, Irvines Landing and Egmont  at a terrific cost to the taxpayers  of the Sunshine Coast. Chairman  John McNevin agreed with Paterson and further stated it was "a  sucker's game to play it their  way."  The board did seem to indicate  however that if the government  was willing to make a reasonable  offer they would be willing to give  the scheme proper consideration.

A double standard  Students at Elphinstone Secondary  School feel slighted by the school board.  They have every right to feel that way.  The students have been showing  their opposition for some time now to the  school board's decision allowing the  homecoming graduates to smoke and  drink and wear shoes in the new gymnasium.  Student representatives attended a  recent school board meeting to voice their  opposition, they have met privately with  School Board chairman Celia Fisher, and  last week they conducted a poll in the  school to demonstrate to the board, as a  last ditch effort, that a great majority of  students are not pleased with the board's  decision.  What seems to bother the students is  not so much the fact that the community  is going to make use of the gym, or even  so much that shoes will be worn in that  gym. The thorn that bothers them is that  since the gymnasium opened last fall they  have been directed to not wear street  shoes in the gym, even during dances,  and they have with some pride adhered to  that rule. Then they are flatly told by the  board that is all right for others to wear  street shoes during a dance, but it is not  all right for the students.  As one student put it: "you can't allow one and not the other."  That is a sound principle and it's a  principle that we should not be merely  telling our students but rather, demonstrating to them.  Being reasonable about it, we would  have to concur with the board and say  that adults should not have to take their  shoes off during a dance. But then, neither should the students.  We suggest the school board gather  its courage and admit to the students that  the board was wrong in setting such double standards. And we suggest the students should also be complimented on the  pride they, take in looking after their new  school.  And since community use of Elphinstone's gymnasium is bound to increase,  it would also be wise for the board to invest sometime and some money to make  sure that Elphinstone's gym floor ��� and  consequently the entire school ��� doesn't  turn into something that nobody cares  about.  A past fad  Public participation. It's a passing  fad, and it's just passed. Just ask -the  Sechelt and District School Board.  The board decided last week that a  parent representative isn't really needed  on the school administrator selection  committee because, some members of  the board claim, an elected trustee already represents the parents and placing  another representative on the committee  would merely be a duplication.  We disagree.  Even though, a trustee is an elected  representative of the people, that trustee,  from the public's viewpoint, soon becomes a quasi expert on education and an  "inside" person in the local education  field.  The trustee, in the eyes of the public,  is identified more as an "official" of the  school district than he or she is as a member of the public.  The residents of the Sunshine Coast  have already demonstrated they want a  say in such important matters as the  hiring of a.new principal. Give them a direct say. It costs nothing.  Perhaps the thoughts of questionnaires on superintendents and public  committees on school sites still gives the  board the shivers. It worked didn't it?  Look after people  Perhaps we should be thankful. The  provincial department of Human Resources, under the tight rein of Minister Bill  Vander Zalm, has allowed us to keep the  mini-bus and the homemakers service.  Other than that, the provincial government's recent announcement to curtail funding to Community Resouce  boards has jeopardized some of the programs currently operating under the  direction of the Sunshine Coast's Community Resources Society.  Alice McSweeney, Director of the  local society, told the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board last week that application  has been made to the government asking  for the retention of funding for some of  the programs. She pointed out that, besides the mini-bus and the homemakers  services, these programs are staffed by  volunteer workers.  The regional board has already expressed support for the Resources Society  and we hope that similar support comes  from all other segments of the Sunshine  Coast community. The resources society  was initiated about a year and a half ago  to serve a specific need here and it has already demonstrated that the need has  been more than fulfilled.  Even in time of austerity the provincial government would do well to remem  ber that the important aspect of this province is still its human beings and they  should not be forsaken merely for the cold  hard figures of a balanced budget.  Where are they?  Well over a year ago now, the village  of Gibsons caused a great uproar by announcing an ambitious expansion project  that would take in the outlying areas to  Port Mellon.  Later, the village modified the expansion plans and among other changes,  Regional District Area E was being considered for annexation to the village.  The proposals were passed on, out of  the hands of the village, and into the  hands of the Committee of Government,  into the hands of the provincial government, and into the hands of another independent committee of citizens working  surreptitiously to try and come up with  some answers to all the unanswered  questions.  We were told that some concrete results would emerge out of all these committees and studies in the new year. So  where are theyfc  Would somebody out there give us a  peep.  *sv��jir.i,j,il,'j>.,r  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons council explains if Henry'  Road residents do not want to join  the village the matter would be  dropped.

Commentary  Everything you wanted to know about Ottawa  by DOUG SEWELL  Who is Joe Clark?  Who is Maureen McTeer?  Why is Joe Clark living with  Maureen McTeer?  Common questions any elementary school student might ask  their Social Studies teacher? Possibly, but more likely.it is a slight-...  fy older group who mutter this  question over breakfast as they  leaf through their morning paper.  I feel it is about time that someone- set these and other equally  important questions to rest, so  this week's commentary is devoted to answering everything you  always wanted to know about  Ottawa but were afraid of finding  out.  Questions 1-3 (as above):  Joe Clark is the Leader of the Opposition. This means, in simple  terms, that every four years he is  allowed to get beaten by Mr. Trudeau in a general election. The  main difference between Mr.  Clark and former Opposition  Leader Mr. Stanfield is that Mr.  Clark does not have to glue his  teeth in every morning and does  not have an eternal supply of  clean underwear. Maureen Mc  Teer is Joe Clark's wife, don't let  the last names fool you, they  claim they really are married.  Maureen is a sexy young law student from the University of Ottawa (perhaps there are other slight  differences between Clark and  Stanfield) who is hoping to make  her fortune by fixing the Prime  Minister's traffic tickets and getting clients off by way of "bedroom Plea Bargaining." If you  thought Trudeau interfered with  due process, just wait.  Question 4: What is a Conservative? Are they dangerous? Do  they bite?  Answer: A Conservative is a  rare form of political animal that  is now near extinction. There are  rumors being circulated around  Ottawa that next election the  Greenpeace organization will step  in to protect these poor animals  from being completely killed off  bubas yet these rumors have not  been confirmed. Do Conservatives bite? Yes, Virginia, those  cute harmless little animals you  see on TV were once a very vicious animal. In recent years however it has been noticed that their  bark is worse than their bite.  Question 5: What is a Provincial Conservative?  Answer: A Provincial Conservative is a sub-species of the National Conservative family. In  British Columbia the Provincial  Conservative was long thought to  be about as prevalent as the Dodo  Bird but recently certain reliable  observers have claimed to see one  hanging about Victoria. It still remains to be determined whether  or not this was actually a Conservative they saw or just a Socred  in   conservative   clothes.   It   is  hoped that further observation  will clear up this intriguing problem.  Question 6: What does a Conservative believe in?  Answer: The opposite (therefore Opposition) of what the Liberals believe in.:  Question 7: Whatdothe/Liber-'  als believe in?  Answer: If we only knew!  Question 8: Will the Conservatives always be in opposition?  . Answer: Which came first, the  chicken or the egg? '  Pender wants dog function  Regional Board Director for Area A, Jack Pater-  son, suggested at Thursday night's board meeting  that Pender Harbour wants to join the proposed  Sechelt-Gibsons Dog Pound plans.  Roberts Creek Director Jim Ironside suggested  it might be possible to include Area A on a once a  week basis and it was promised that the idea would  be given further consideration in planning committee  and at the respective village councils.  Pender Harbour Director Paterson stated he had  several complaints about the dog problem and that  the logical solution would seem to be for the Gibsons-  Sechelt Dog Catcher to spend some time in the  Pender Harbour area.  Letters to the Editor  NOISE PIT  The following is a copy of a  letter addressed to the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board:  I find it necessary,to write to  you regarding Shoal Development's operation on Reed Road. I  live adjacent to the gravel pit on  a five acre farm.  All last summer, I had to do my  housework to the tune of diggers  and gravel trucks roaring up and  down a side road near my property with their" air brakes  screeching, sometimes till 11  o'clock at night. It is impossible to  work outside in my yard for  longer than about half an hour  when the pit is operating because  of the god awful noise, it gives  one a headache. The noise of a  radio or the children playing in  my house cannot block out the  noise from the pit and I don't  feel that I should have to tolerate  this kind of pollution in order for  someone to make a living.  It now, seems that a gravel  crusher is operating in the pit,  the noise of which is equal to at  least two trains. That kind of  noise in this quiet rural area is  obscene. I realize people have to  make a living and I certainly have  nothing personally against the  owners of the gravel pit, I don't  know them and maybe up to this  point, they were not even aware  of how many people who live  close to the operation are disturb  ed by their pollution. Well, now  they know, so could we please  have the Regional Board's stand  on the matter. We live in a quiet  rural area so why was such an operation allowed here to start with?  Surely this type of pollution  should be confined to a commercial area.  I do not wish to spend another  summer listening to a gravel  crusher and heavy trucks, practically in my back yard, neither  would you. Is there something in  the local bylaws that says I  should, or can this operation be  moved elsewhere to a more suitable area. Please let me know  what can be done. Thanks.  ���JANET GIBB.  ANY COURAGE?  I submit for your perusal a let-:  ter I wrote recently to the Vancouver Sun and which they refused to  print, being' the liberal paper  their attitude was fairly obvious.  The letter was as follows:'  I wish to congratulate Mr. Mac  Reynolds for his satirical article  on the subject of Quebec which  included the. statement that they  were "selling bits of wood allegedly from the tree that Pierre  Trudeau hid behind during the  Second World War." (Sun, Feb.  27). I also want to congratulate  your paper for having the courage  to print it-  Speaking of courage, does our  Prime Minister have any or is it  sheer, arrogant, unmitigated gall  on his part when he reviews the  Veterans on Armistice Day and  places a wreath on the Cenotaph  ���for those who gave their lives for  their country? I am sure that his  security must be tightened at  these events  -Yes, I am a veteran, I belong  to no Legion or other organisations that may remind me of the  five years I spent in the service of  my country in a time of great need  but I do not think I have ever held  in such contempt a man(?), rail-  lionaire (unquestioned), intelligent (debatable), Judo expert  (possibly) as our present Prime  . Minister and I consider it a reflection on the masses of Canadians  who had the mentality to elect,  him, not once, but on two occasions.  No, I would not go so far as to  state that I wished to see him  assassinated, personally I do not  think he is worth the effort, but  I would do everything in my power to see him kicked out of office  and publicly humiliated.  ���DON CRUICKSHANK.

That's why I think school is  a drag.  ���FRED DEMPSTER  MISTAKEN  IMPRESSION  Editor: I read with great interest your article on Old MacDon-  ald's7 Farm written by Rob Dykstra in the Feb. 17 copy of the  Coast News.  Admittedly, Mr. Huard's up  and coming chicken business  sounds like it will be very prosperous and I wish him all the  luck due him.  However, 1 was quite angered  at the mention of the "small, traditional looking barn" that's to  give the farm an authentic atmosphere, Mr. Huard, or the writer of  the article, have given the mistaken impression to the readers  that he built this barn. I believe  most people in your area realize  Mr. Huard purchased his property from long time residents of the  Sunshine Coast ��� Ron and Lynn  Blomgren.  I also believe credit should go  to Ron for the barn. He used timber off the property, cut it into  boards on an Alaskan Junior sawmill and built and designed the  barn himself. Three quarters of  ' the building material was from  this source and the shakes on the  roof from the same source,  not an easily forgotten job, I'm  sure.  Please, let's give credit where  credit is due and when Mr. Huard  has built his farm up to the extent  he wishes, that credit will be his.  ���Mrs. DONNA BLOMGREN,  Williams Lake. ���  prmg  means  cleaning  by CAROLYNNBICHLER  It won't be long now, spring is  just around the comer. You can  see signs everywhere. The barren  trees are ready to burst forth, all  the bulbs have sprouts popping  up out of the ground. I've even  seen a few flowers.  What a wonderful time of year,  a time for rebirth. A time when  it's great to be outside taking  walks, looking at all of Mother  Nature's wonders doing their  thing. It's a time when I'm glad to  be alivei Except for one thing,  spring cleaning.  Spring cleaning really puts a  damper on my joy. When I should  be out enjoying the splendors of  nature I'm inside washing and  scrubbing. That's not entirely  true, I get to be outside when I  wash windows.  Time to clean out the kitchen  cupboards, straighten the linen  closet, wash walls and sort and  throw away the junk that has been  collecting since the last spring  cleaning. Quite a job to undertake.  I not only have the job of tearing the house apart and putting  it back together again. I have an  even harder task, getting the kids  to do the same in their rooms. The  idea of spring cleaning makes absolutely no sense at all to them.'  Each year I have to explain to  the children why we are taking on  this monstrous task. It's hard to  justify something when you aren't  especially keen on it yourself.  However I must get the wheels  in motion, buckle down, nose to  the grindstone, and start cleaning  I'm glad that we have lots of win- '  dows in our house so that I'll be  able to glimpse at where I would  rather be.  It is a pain cleaning, but when  it's all done and I proudly look at  my spotlessly neat house 1 realize  that it was worth it. My broken  finger nails will grow back. When  I see everything sparkling with  cleanness, or open a cupboard  and view its orderlyness my chest  swells with pride at a job well  done. 1 feel like inviting all the  neighbors over for an inspection.  ; The problem with living imthis  beautiful house is that I can't  stand it when things start returning to their prespring cleaning  state. I become livid over a hand  print on a window or a smear on  my clean white wall. So while  everything returns to it's usual  state I'll take my long walks in  the spring air, watch the birds  building their nests, and sit and  smell the flowers.  Trailer  bylaw  discussed  SCRD District Planner Adrian  Stott has met with the representative of the Mobile. Home Park  Operators, L. Baldwin to discuss  objections raised earlier by the  Mobile Home Park Operators to a  proposed new By-law 90 govern-  in. the installation and use of  Mobile Homes.  The meeting appears to: have  cleared up most of the objections. '  to the by-law. The only questions  remaining concerned the status of  travel trailers already installed in  the parks and the board's position,  on the sale of mobile homes with-.  in the boundaries of a residential  mobile home park.  These two points were discussed at Thursday night's Regional  District meeting and the Board  adopted policy that travel trailers  installed in a registered mobile  home park prior to March 11  should be accepted as being  equivalent to non-conforming  mobile homes and therefore can  remain-within the parks. It was.  also decided that mobile homes  shall not be sold from a mobile  home park unless they are pro-',  perly installed and intended only  as display units.  The by-law will now be amend-.  ed and then will be presented to  the Board for third reading.  FORESTS  PART OF ALL  OUR LIVES!  TREES_THE GREEN LINK  \  *  V  A  h Letters to the Editor  Sunshine Coast News, March 16,1976.  PUNISHMENT  PANACEA  Editor: A meeting of the Sun-  . shine Coast Justice Council  March 4, 1976, was attended by  40 people who wished to express  their views and listen to arguments for and against capital  punishment. Thirty two of the 40  stated that they were, under some  circumstances, in favor of planning to kill certain members of  society. Although some of the  32 expressed a reluctance to actively participate in the execution  they felt it would be possible to  hire a killer at a nominal fee.  The 32 people who were interested in employing a hired killer  to execute certain individuals  were not members of the Mafia,  although organized crime has,  without a doubt, traditionally  made' use of hired assassins.  Those who attended the meeting,  in fact, are law,abiding citizens  and, although some of them are in  favor of executing certain individuals, it is unlikely that they would  see themselves as potential killers. Ironically they claim to abhor  killing and yet, when it suits their  needs, are, themselves, prepared  to take the life of a fellow human  being. This may be understandable when it comes to matters of  self-defence but, I would suggest,  that if people are opposed to the  pre-meditated taking of another's  life, they .must be totally opposed  and not vary their beliefs to suit  their personal needs.  Those in favor of capital punishment present many arguments  to support their claim, some of  which appear logical on the surface. They claim that capital punishment is a deterrent yet they  know that people willingly risk  their lives every day in dangerous  occupations for forty or fifty dollars. Would the deterrent value  of capital punishment, then, have  any effect on a hired killer who is  perhaps being paid thousands of  dollars? Would a sexual deviate  be deterred? Would an .enraged  husband or wife in a domestic  feud be deterred?  A second argument put forward  by the proponents of capital punishment is the high cost of incarceration. At the present time  we have, I think, about 15 people  under the sentence of death in  Canada. If their sentences are  commuted to life imprisonment it  will cost the taxpayers of Canada  15 to 20 thousand dollars a year  for each of these individuals.  There are 22 million people in  Canada and, even if the cost is  only borne by ten million of the  population, the expense to the  taxpayer is minimal. I would suggest that the individual is perhaps  faced with an expense of one or  two dollars per year. Are those in  favor of capital punishment in  actual fact saying that they are  willing to do away with human life  in order that they might personally save a couple of bucks?  In addition to the moral and  philosophical aspects of the capital punishment issue there are  some practical considerations.  Society must be protected and it  is evident, at the present time,  that there are some people who  should not be allowed the freedom of living outside an institution. If we execute murderers,  rapists, etc., however, we may  feel that we have effectively dealt  with the problem. Nothing could  be further from the truth.  If society is to be safe we must  look at the root causes of violence  and direct our energy towards/  prevention. We must deal with -  our social ills in our own community and not allow ourselves to be  lulled into a state of complacency  by relying on capital punishment  as a panacea. How can we, as a  society, hope to eradicate violent  behavior if we use violence ��� i.e.  execution, flogging, etc., as a  means of social control? We either value human life and dignity or  we do not. Morally and practically we cannot have it both  ways.  ���NEILMcKENZIE  Sechelt.  LIKE SEX,  LIKE WORK  Editor: Re: Capital Punishment.  Your editorial in the March 9  issue of the Coast News gives me  the impression that you feel the  recent Justice Development Commission shows that approximately  10 percent plus yourself belong to  die thinking and morally responsible group of society, whereas  die rest of mankind just follows  their savage, animal instinct of ���  revenge. In. fact, however, your  reasoning seems to be based on  many subtle errors.

'  Pacific Region  your  ��  PeursalPs view  The following is a copy of a letter from Jack Pearsall addressed  to Gibsons resident Gunter  Beyser:  Thank you for your recent letter  expressing your views on the Bill  to abolish the death penalty.  The majority of people in Coast  Chilcotin who have expressed an  opinion to me have indicated they  want the death penalty retained.  I, myself, am a retentionist and  have been all my life. I will vote  accordingly.  ���Jack Pearsall, M. P.  the decision whether there is a  God who created us and has  therefore a claim on us, or whether we are just a better animal  that somehow came to develop  out of what? Statistics .and my  own impression show that bur society is approximately 90 percent  atheistic or at least feels it does  not need to worry about the question. This is why I first want to  take their position.    '     *  Does society have the right to  take the life of a criminal? Does  man have a right to live? This  society that arbitrarily decided we  should have this right, just as one  day society could grant this right  to dogs, whales or.sacred cows; or  just as our governments have  pretty well decided to refuse this  right to.the unborn child; or it  might return to the Roman custom   of infanticide;   or   decide  euthanasia is expedient; or if our  social burden continues to climb,  consider it be best for us to put '  old age pensioners at the age of  70 gently to sleep. What I am trying to say is; in an atheistic approach life has nd intrinsic value,  life becomes a mere .commodity  the value of which will fluctuate  according to society's needs. I  know most atheists will refuse to  accept  this  reasoning because  there is something telling them  this can't be right. Unfortunately  they leave it at that instead of  examining the Christian claims  that there is a God who .has revealed Himself abundantly.  Christian tradition testifies that  the death penalty is compatible  with Christian teaching. Furthermore there has never been any  culture at all without this punishment.. .Only... modern atheistic  humanism has, introduced this  thinking, but please don't delude  yourself taking this to be an advance of the so called age of  "enlightenment." ��� \  How can a Christian then defend the death penalty? Chiefly  by the convictions, that there is  life after death, that nothing happens without the will of God, that  the one thing important for us  here is to respond to His graces,  that a man sentenced to death is  thereby not being' deprived of responding to this graces.  You are saying: taking the life  of a criminal is indefensible! Is it  not more indefensible to spend a  million dollars on a criminal, during a 25 year term and at the  same time to ignore people's dying of starvation by the thousands? Or doing nothing about  the slums in our big cities? Or letting a drug pusher slowly kill our  youngsters? Perhaps you should  read David Wilkenson's "The  Cross and the Switchblade" and  then you will see that your values  are distorted.  You are saying: We are just  avoiding the problem by executing the man. Isn't it rather ihe  other, way around? We do not  have the strength to make a diffi-  clt decision and therefore put him  away out of our sight. You are  wondering whether those people  would be able to flip the switch? I  am sure most people would hate  to do it and I have wondered  whatT this reluctance is. I don't  think it is our conscience, perhaps  it is our instinct to perserve our  life and the association of. pain.  We do not feel uncomfortable kill-,  ing a fly, but perhaps a bird, not a  rat, but a babygoat, not a 12 week  old fetus or dropping a bomb.  It seems to me that this reluctance has something to do with  the size of the object and how  close it is. For the same reason we  can easily ignore the starving in  Africa. Most people would justify  a defensive war and say: well, it  has to be done. The same applies  to the death penalty. All rationality leads to having it.  I definietly disagree that the  death penalty is a murder of ,re-  '; yenge. It is rather the inflicting of  a just punishment and without  punishment rehabilitation is not '  possible; or at least doubtful. This  does not mean I have no compas-  . sibn for the murderer. In fact,  locking a man up for 25 years  seems to me a lot less humane. It  is so easily to establish a range of  prison terms for various crimes,  but can anyone really comprehend what it means to be locked  up for 25 years. It is entirely ab-  . stract. We are not thereby preserving life, but only a body: And  you want to keep him there for  further studies of our crime situation. Do you really believe we can  learn from these criminals if we  have not learned since Cain murdered Abel? It is not that we don't  know the answer, because Christ *  has given it, but that we don't  want to listen to it. '  .   ���GUNTER BEYSER  Gibsons.  DESERVES DEATH  Editor: The last sentence of your  editorial. regarding the' death  penalty (Coast News, March 9)  was: the retention of the death  penalty means nothing less than  legalized murder.  I would like to disagree with  you on this point. To me it is the  very opposite. A person who took  the liberty on himself to take  someone's fife���and was proven  to be in his right mind at the time  of the act ��� deserves to be sentenced to death.  It is true we as individuals have  no right to. touch such a person.  but to let him stay afive or to allow  him to go free through probation  .may encourage another murder.  That surely is legalized murder.  I greatly respect those people  .who voted in favor of the death  penalty for they have the courage  to take on responsibility. Lack of  responsibility in our society is  partly to blame for the downfall of  our great country.  In tact, your attitude towards  the person who votes in favor of  the death penalty or towards the  one who puus the trigger borders  on superstition. You are not sure  whether you are doing right or  wrong and therefore you consider  yourself a murderer as well if you  vote to enforce the death penalty.  But please remember that you  have no right to carry out the  death penalty yourself and you  will not be asked to do so. The law  will do so. Therefore don't feel  bad about a deed you have never  preformed.  Timber Days  expected to be best yet  The newly formed "Timber  Days" committee reports it had a  successful meeting on Monday  March 8th.  It was decided to hold a May  Queen contest and Mort Reid volunteered to head this committee.  Gordon Dewer was appointed  chairman of the Logger Sports.  The Parade organization has been  undertaken by the Chamber of  Commerce. Other events decided  upon were the Soap Box Derby,  Pony rides and children's sports.  It-was the feeling of the.committee that Timber Days should  be a day for Children as well as  loggers and it was decided to  have children's sports events..  Other committees are iri* the  "' 7 ^-   .���'  formation stage and will be announced after the next Sechelt  Timber Days meeting April 5.  �� The committee feels that 01  Fraser, who earlier accepted the  position of Chairman, of Timber  Days, will do an excellent job.  With Lil on the job it is felt the  committee will be proded, coaxed  and expertly guided to do their  jobs.  The committee also feels that  this year's Sechelt Timber Days  will be the biggest and best to  date.  Advertising  helps  you compare.  Remember: A man without any  borders is not a free man and a  country without a law is not a free  country. To do away with the  death penalty is nothing less than  ; doing away .with another law. Result: Al Capone.  ���KARL-HEINZ SCHOERS  ; CONGRATULATIONS  Editor: I must congratulate you  7 on an excellent editorial last week  re capital punishment and gun  control. I go along with your viewpoint entirely.  I've always, in the back of my  mind, believed that the majority.  of the population were against  killing ��� no matter who or what  that person may be; private citizen or person of authority, or  criminal; we are all human  beings.  Until recently, when I became  aware of a very strong reaction for  capital punishment. I was appalled at the number of people who  say ��� with little if any thought on  the matter at all ��� hang 'em, get  rid of them. Out of sight, out of  mind.  Killing off the wrongdoer is not  going to right that wrong, nor is it  going to solve the problem. The.  question is: What is society doing  wrong to be producing people  who murder?  Could you honestly sentence  your brother or sister or anyone  close to you, to death? .Could you  stand by and watch them being  executed? Or. perhaps perform  the deed yourself? If it'was your  .brother? I doubt it. That's getting  too close to home. It's easy  enough to read about strangers in  the paper and say that person  deserves to be hanged.  How many of you, safe in your  everyday surroundings,'have ever  come into contact with so-called  hardened criminals? You might  be surprised to find they're human beings, too. Just like you ���  only not so fortunate. Something  has happened in their lives to  cause them to be rebellious,  angry, uncaring, and yes, scared.  That something needs to be  brought to the surface, and every  "effort be made to rectify the situation.  I strongly urge every one of you  to'give this subject some rational  and objective thought. Don't let  your immediate gut reaction, or  your emotions get in the way.  . Further to the gun control issue -��� I don't feel there's any  need for anyone to own guns  other than for hunting, and then .  for food only, not sport.  Well, I seem to have gotten  carried but what the hell, it may  be the only time in my life 111  ever write a letter to the editor,  so I may as well makeithe best of  it.  ���SUESTEPHENS  Roberts Creek.  NOFACTS  Editor: Re your editorials headed Hanging is Murder and On  Gun Control. In both editorials  you make statements of fact when  in reality they are not facts but  merely your own opinion, for  what it's worth.  Fact: There are indeed "Humane" means of execution. An  air bubble injected into a vein  and a lethal injection of morphine  are two examples.  Fact: There are no facts to  prove that capital punishment is  NOT a deterrent to murder, considering our crime ridden society.  Had the Oakalla hostage principals been executed, as they certainly would have been 40 years  ago, Miss Steinhauser would be  alive today. Miss Steinhauser is  worth a hundred of such scum.  Your statement: "Those who  suggest that capital punishment  is a deterrent must be prepared to  return to public executions and  put them on prime family hour TV  viewing" is a hysterical overstatement not worthy of consideration or comment except to  question your'mental condition.  Your other statement: "The irrevocable act of capital punishment on the part of society ���  all of us ��� precludes any chance  to study and remedy the cause of  such crimes." I ask you, how  many more crimes do you need to  study? Surely the criminologists  had ample reason and opportunity to come to some conclusions  other than to penalize the good  for the deeds of the bad.  You wonder if .those in favor of  capital punishment would personally pull the trap or switch and  feel that justice has been done.  My personal view is, yes, I would,  just as I would shoot a rabid dog  (innocent as it would be) to remove a proven threat, to society.  Has justice been done? No. No  justice could restore the murderer's victim but capital punishment would ensure that that particular murderer would not do it  again, as has happened.  Why, with all the self-righteous  bleeding hearts crying over the  fate of a murderer is there never  a word of compassion or sympathy in the public print for the victim, sometimes dying in the most  agonizing fear and pain as in the  case of a child rape-murder? Why  is there no compassion for the  relatives who are left with a permanent scar on their souls?  A final point is that there is not,  and never can be such a thing as  In your gun control editorial  there is a further mis-statement  of fact. Society does not sanction  the unrestricted use of guns. Far  from it. Take the time to investigate the regulations covering  the use of firearms and particularly those relative to restricted  firearms. The latter are very rigid  and have been most effective for  a good number of years with only  the law abiding citizens. The  "bad guys" can buy a hand gun  on skid row for $50 anytime.  Check that with your local RCMP.  Your statement that there is  simply no justification for the average Canadian to own any form  of weapon is fatuous and simply  points up your lack of knowledge  or research on the subject.  Would you ban the automobile  because thousands of people are  killed or maimed every year because of the operation by the  drivers?  Your thinking would deprive  the law abiding citizens of the  legitimate use of firearms and  would have absolutely no effect  on the incidence of murder or killing by deranged persons.  Guns do not kill people. People  kill people ��� with guns, knives,  axes, baseball bats, poison, even  in one case, with a crossbow.  By the way, have you ever  played golf? It's a pleasant hobby, like target shooting, although  the golf club is a deadly weapon  and more people have been killed  with them than target rifles and  pistols used on a properly regulated target range.  ���H.G.ROBERTSON,  Sechelt.

The small  annoyances you may experience  in the days ahead should not  cause you worry. Learn to enjoy  life.  TAURUS April 21 to May 20  Business and social activity won't  go exactly hand in hand this next  week. It would be sensible to  concentrate on one or the other,  but not both, as they just will not  mix.  GEMINI - May 21 to June 20  A letter dealing with money, may  have gone astray somewhere,  causing you considerable anxiety.  If you bide your time, and act  sensibly, all will work out well for  you in the end.  CANCER ��� June 21 to July 21  There's a chance that you may be  moving shortly, but letters and  communications dealing with this  won't look too promising. Don't  jump to conclusions about a  move, without -some careful consideration.  LEO - July 22 to August 21  A feeling of "what's the use?"  should be curbed at all costs next  week. Your work is receiving  favourable attention by your superiors and will work out well if you  don't "lose faith."  VIRGO ��� August 22 to Sept. 21  One good thing that has happened in Virgo is that the troublesome time that you have had has  passed and you can soon look  forward to better days.  LIBRA ��� Sept 22 to October 22  There's a very strange set of  aspects in the zodiac facing Libra  at this time. These should work  out in your favour, but much  depends upon the year in which  you were born. Consult a competent astrologer.  SCORPIO - Oct. 23 to Nov. 21  Business matters are excellent for  Scorpio right now. but as mentioned before, social and home  interests are still under a cloud of  bewilderment. Say little, and pay  attention to commercial matters.  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 Dec 20  Your intuition is extremely keen  right now. You seem to know just  what to say or do, and when to  do it. You may possibly be  moving from your place of residence shortly.  CAPRICORN -Dec 21 - Jan 19  A flare-up of temper could cause  you to lose everything you have  gained in the past. Be extremely  cautious of what you say, and to  whom you say it to. You'll see  wisdom in this later.  AQUARIUS - Jan.20 - Feb 18  Aquarius individuals are finally  "coming into their own" astrol-  ogically. The 'lessons of life' are  begining to make themselves  clear. Your future is now in your  hands. Be sensible.  PISCES ��� Feb. 19 to Mar. 20  A clash of opinion with those  around you may come up, es-  ��� pecially during the middle of next  week. Don't let this spoil your  hopes and expectations, as it's  only of a temporary nature.  (Copyright 1976 by Trent Varro. All rights reserved.)

DISPLAY of pottery in one man show by Irene Crowell at Whitaker House last week.  ' ���Doug sewell Photo  Small monographs at Whitaker House  A memory of images in black  and white, based on tree bark,  seedlings and mountains will be  found at Whitaker House this  week. Trudy Small calls her latest  work rnonographics becouse they  appear to be prints but are actually  individual  designs  using  ink and latex house paint.  This show is at Whitaker House  Sechelt, March 15 to20.  Also available this week is new  stoneware and pottery work by  George Deacon and Elaine Fut-  terman.  Last week's one man show fea  tured the pottery and printings of  Irene Crowell. Mrs. Crowell has  been a resident of West Sechelt  for the last three years. Prior to  coming here she was owner-  operator of the Wheel House Pottery Studio in Nakusp.  Her  Whitaker  House exhibit  included works done in oils, pastels, and acrylics. Mrs. Crowell is  mainly a self-taught artist. She  says that during the last few years  she has not been too productive  but she hopes to start work on a  more regular basis soon.  Films  Diana Ross shows her talents  At the climax of the new film  "Mahogany," the young secretary-  turned-model-turned fashion designer  portrayed by Diana Ross unveils her  fabulous creations in a packed theatre rented for the occasion by a rich  and powerful admirer played by Jean  Pierre Aumont. Her designs are  exotic, Oriental in flavor, full of  ^fantasy' and 'outrageously' attractive  in their extreme originality.  The dresses, it turns out, really were  designed by Diana Ross, marking  what is probably the first time in film  history that the star of a major  motion picture also acted as Costume  Designer. If in "Lady Sings the Blues"  the famous singer showed us how brilliantly she could act, "Mahogany" is  more than an auspicious debut for  Diana Ross into the world of fashion.  Ironically, that was her interest  even as a child. "In high school I  studied fashion design and costume  illustration," Diana now relates. "But  the only opportunity I ever had in  this direction was in my "own personal  wear when I was with The Supremes.  "When the opportunity to do  'Mahogany' came up and I took the  script home and realized it was about  a fashion designer, I thought to myself, 'Gee, wouldn't it be something  if I could design the.clothes!' Well, I  began thinking and talking about it  a lot until finally I decided to check  with Berry Gordy (Director of 'Mahogany') and try to fight for it.  I  felt it might also help me get into  the role."  . The actual inspiration for the,  "Mahogany" fashion show at th6  climax of the film came from a casual  visit Diana made to a small Oriental  shop in Los Angeles. "I happened to  find these little kites," Diana explains.  "They were made of paper, but done  in the most incredible colors, purples  and oranges���many of them of the  same colors I later used in designing  the clothing."  Diana acknowledges the expert help  she received in making the full transformation to fashion designer. Her  right hand assistant was Susan Gerts-  mari, formerly manager of the well-  known Alan Austin Company in Los  Angeles.  "Diana has creativity on the tips  of her fingers," Susan states. "When  she believes in something, she's tenacious because she's one of those people who have a sense of when they're  on the right track with an idea. At  the same time she values the judgement of others."  The "Mahogany" fashion show���  which makes up only a part of all the  dresses designed by Diana for the  film���brings forth a stream of. glowing comments from Ms. Gertsman.  "The fundamental thing in fashion is  fantasy and Diana has a ton of it,"  she says. "You know, she actually  dreamed some of the designs. She was  principally influenced by Kabuki The  atre and by the French designer Erte,  but her work is still remarkable for  its freshness and originality."  Though all the designs were done  and the dresses executed in the United  States, Diana Ross still had to count  on expert collaboration once on Italian soil for the critical filming of the  "Mahogany" fashion show on Rome  locations. This she.*got--from such  people as top makeup artist Franco  Corridoni, veteran wardrobe mistress  Annalisa Nasalli-Rocca and an American choreographer named Jho Jhen-  kins who spent three years in Japan  studying the Kabuki tradition.  Corridoni describes the"Mahogany"  fashion show as one of the - most  difficult but rewarding of his career.  "We had 14 models to prepare, not  to mention the principal actors. It  Wasn't merely a question of costuming, but highly intricate makeup and  hair styles as well."  The models were tall and stunning  and consummately graceful in their  movements. Choreographer Jhenkins  was responsible not only for the  deployment of the models, but also  for the selection of the music ���  "Nihon No Melody" by contemporary composer Furu Kawa Taro ���  which served to accompany the  models' movements.  The special magic that imbued the  scene left no doubt that the multi-  talented Diana Ross���already world-  famous as a singer and actress���is a  top-notch Costume Designer as well.

Backpacking is an excellent  recreational activity for people of  all ages provided they are prepared. Children and even babies  can go hiking with you if you  know what you're doing.  The British Cohunbla Recreational Atlas is an excellent resource book for the serious backpacker. It contains 97 detailed  topographical maps of the province, each of which provides information on such things as boundaries, all types of roads,, trails,  cities and towns, hospitals, parks,  and ski areas. In addition it has  a comprehensive index listing  cities and towns and waterways,  etc. there is only one troublesome feature of this atlas ��� all  measurements are metric, this  will prove frustrating to anyone  not conversant with metric'measurements but should be a real  challenge to the average reader  ��� and it will make learning metric measurements more pleasant.  The Backpacker's Handbook is  an excellent book for both the expert and novice backpacker. It  provides information in such  areas as choosing equipment,  safety, what to pack, food, survival and safety. It is amply illustrated and concisely written,  although the appendix of National  Parks only covers the United  States.  -  Lightweight Backpacking provides essentially the same information as the Handbook but it  also contains some of the philosophy of the writer.

It does, however, provide excellent detailed  information on basics like building a fire and tying basic knots.  For people with offspring,  Backpacking With Babies and  Small Children is a good resource  manual; It is a marvellous book,  full of good, ideas about how to  handle every aspect of hiking  with children, from a special  backpack to carry the baby to  how to handle the diaper situation. It also provides ideas about  how to keep your children entertained along the trail and at the  campsite. The humorous text and  the cartoons by Alan Pratt are  unexpected bonuses.

Preceding the  description of each hike there is  a summary of distances and times  (travel and hiking). In addition  there is a comprehensive index  and 20 reference maps. It is unfortunate that books of, this calibre are not available for the rest  of the province.  The last book on the list is Being Your Own WBderneasDoctor.  This is assuredly the most  valuable book, too. No one should  venture away from; civilization  without being prepared for an  emergency. This bode details  what you should take with you,  how to handle simple cuts,  sprains, infections, and most importantly, life saving methods  and how to cope with shock. This  Ls an excellent manual for all  types of outdoor recreation emergencies and should be carried  during      wilderness      travels.  All of the above books are available at Books and Stationery, Se-  chelt.

This week's film is playing in  a dubbed version since the subtitled version was not available  for our playdate, and I am assured by Chairperson of the Canadian Federation of Film Societies,  Anneke Schoemaker, that the  dubbing is excellent, unlike the  dubbing for Bunuel's BeQe du  Jour which was execrable.  The Discreet Charm of the  Bourgeoisie received the Academy Award in 1973 for Best Foreign Film, and it is certainly one  which many people will be seeing  for a second time as it played (in  a sub-titled version) in a previous  Film Society program in 1974 to  virtually universal delight and acclaim. It is an uproariously funny  film, described by one reviewer  as "a comic vaudeville show ���  an Old Master's mischief."  A group of six friends ��� three  men and three women ��� have  trouble getting together for a dinner, but they're not trapped:  the series of interrupted dinners  spans an indefinite period, while  food, that ritual centre of bourgeoisie well-being, keeps eluding  them. And Bunuel has left himself free: this is his most frivolously witty movie, and it's  open in time and place. It's a  divertimento on themes from his  past movies ��� the incidental  pleasures of twists and dreams-  logic for their own sake. It's all  for fun ��� the fun of observing  how elegantly these civilized  monsters deport thernselves in  preposterous situations.  The foregoing is an extract  from Pauline Kael's review of the  film which appeared in the New  Yorker of November 11,1972.

Apparently many CBC radio  listeners on the Sunshine Coast  and other west coast areas" are  experiencing interference at night  from a station in Tijuana, Mexico.  The department of communications has explained that this is a  comon phenomenon when there  are two stations operating on the  same frequency. It is characteris  tic of broadcast radio waves that  a distant broadcast station will  overpower a local station signal  on the same frequency during the  night, yet will never be heard during the day.  The department said residents  will have to live with this problem  since an interfering signal can  only be eliminated by a change of  transmitting characteristics. This  would involve a frequency change  or a change in antenna directivity  or power output.  According to the department,  the most effective would be a fre  quency change, which would require lengthy international negotiations because the broadcast  channels used by North American  stations have been assigned in  accordance with international  agreement. Also most other  broadcast frequencies are more  crowded than 690 kilocycles so a  change in frequency by either station would create more problems  than it would solve.  CBC's chief engineer, Jim  Wughton, says CBC does not as  rumored, lower its power at night  but operates on the maximum  rtment  power allowed. However the Ti-  juana,station is supposed to lower  its power at night in accordance  with its licence requirerrients and  does not do so.  Perhaps if enough complaints  were, made to Madame Sauve the  federal government could be persuaded to make representations  to the government of Mexico asking that such regulations be enforced.

Nairns did say that construction  on the school was now about a  week behind schedule but added  that "1 can't see too many problems" in meeting the deadline.

Architect George Killick  said a new gymnasium will be  built so as to tie the fragmented  school together to make a more  comprehensive unit.  Killick also said the cost estimate for the proposed Pratt Road  area Elementary school is$420,-  000 and urged the board to make  a site decision as soon as possible  for the 10,400 square feet  building.  Once the board has a site for  this school, the public will be asked to suggest names. The school  will have four classrooms and is  scheduled to open this September  .

SEED POTATO EXPORTS  Exports of certified Canadian  seed potatoes increased substantially in 1975 from 1974 and the  situation may be even better this  year.  A small world crop last year has  resulted in a shortage of seed potatoes for the 1976 planting  season and many other countries  look to Canada for their supplies.  Canada is second only to The  Netherlands in world seed potato  trade.  The Pender Harbour Auxiliary  to St. Mary's Hospital reports  that most of the members are  holidaying in Hawaii at this time  but a recent meeting still drew 23  members and two guests. Guests  at the last meeting were Mrs.  Muriel Eggins, volunteer director  and Mrs. Eve Moscrip, past volunteer director. They were welcomed by President Mrs. Joan  Paterson.  The auxiliary received a letter  from Mrs. Mary Alexander, who  is holidaying in Hawaii, and even  though she is on holiday there,  she is busy gathering ideas for  money making projects. A letter  was also received from Doreen  Lee, mentioning some coming  events at Pender Harbour, particularly the Spring Concert to be  held at the Pender. Harbour Sec-  condary School on March 14.   ^ vJ  Jean Paterson read a' copy of a .  letter she had sent to the various'  service organizations in the Har  bour, listing the auxiliary's coming activities and dates, in order  that a conflict can be avoided  with the activities of the other  organizations.  Jean Prest showed some of the  pet rocks made by Irene Temple?  and read a poem that Irene composed. A poem will go with each  rock. These are for tray favors at  the hospital for St. Patrick's Day.  Irene Hodgson gave the Thrift  Shop report. Those who worked in  the shop last month were Irene  Hodgson, Lila Wiggins, Lou Far-  re 11, Irene Temple and Jessie  Pritchard. They had a busy day.  Doreen Webb thanked those  who brought in articles for sale.  She has wool on hand for anyone  who would like to do some knitting. Gladys Brown would welcome clothing, etc., for the Mini-  Thrift Shop.  Mrs. Moscrip introduced the  volunteer director Mrs. Muriel  Eggins who gave a very interest  ing talk about the work of volunteers in the hospital. Such work  includes hairdressing, flower care  and work in the physiotherapy department. Any one who is interested in helping with any of these  activities may phone Mrs. Eggins  at 885-2422.  Mrs. Eggins also mentioned  that March 17 has been set aside  as an evening at the hospital for  junior volunteers, whose work is  much appreciated.  Mrs. Moscrip spoke of the parties and outings enjoyed by the  patients in extended care. Volunteers help the patients with these  events.  The meeting adjourned at 2:30  and tea with delicious refreshments were served by Mrs. Lou  Farrell.

At the board's  last meeting on February 26, Directors had considered a recommendation to prosecute the Aero  Club for its failure to obtain the  necessary building permit  before construction.  The problem started when the  Aero Club, located on leased federal land, began the construction  of a new clubhouse after receiving approval from Ottawa. It  appears the federal government  informed the Aero Club that no  other permits were necessary and  when the Regional District building inspector later lodged his  objections the Aero Club decided  to pay the necessary Building  Permit fee of SI 16. By this time  however the Building Inspector,  H. Morris-Reade, had assessed  an additional fine of $90, and this  the club refused to pay claiming  that the board had no real authority over the federal land. The  SCRD refused to accept the permit fee without payment of the  fine and the board, finding itself  in a ludicrous position, decided to  seek legal opinion on the matter.  Ihe question of jurisdiction  over the leased federal land appears to have been settled by a  letter received from Transport  Canada shortly after the last  SCRD meeting. In the letter, G.  Bruno, Community Airports Officer for Transport Canada, states  that "Our legal counsel advises  that Crown Federal Property is  beyond the jurisdiction of both  provincial and local authority.  Local by-laws are therefore unenforceable on Federal property."  Mr. Bruno continued by stating  that it is not Transport's intention  to provide local lessees with the  opportunity to avoid legitimate  local regulations but that this is  done through a spirit of cooperation' not of legal obligation.  The SCRD accepted Transport  Canada's statement and decided  , to issue the necessary building  ; permit without the attached fine.  ; It appears the Aero Gub will finally be allowed to proceed with  the construction of the new clubhouse without further intervention by local government.  Student  applications  now available  Employer applications for the  Provincial Seasonal Employment  for Students program are now  available. Nine million dollars has  been    allocated    to    societies,  farmers, and small businesses,  and to the regional and municipal  levels of government.

A  h- r 'mi '^fcr *mt  Sunshine Coast News, March 16.1978.  icial says  Hockey here too aggressive  by ROB DYKSTRA  Bruce Wormald has a favorite  saying. It is a saying that was first  coined by Montreal Canadien's  Pete Mahovolich when he stated  after a Canada - Soviet hockey  game that playing the Russians is  just like playing hockey on the  pond.  It's a statement that Bruce  Wormald agrees with because,  like Pete Mahovolich, he thinks  much of the skill and pleasure has  vanished from hockey in favor of a  more aggressive game where the  tone of the play in not 'ride him  into the boards' but rather 'kill  'em.' And according to Bruce,  that goes for professional hockey  and it goes for hockey right here  on the Sunshine Coast.  Bruce, who is chief referee for  the men's commercial league is  getting fed up with the aggressive  behaviour that is now characterizing the four team commercial league that plays regularly at the  Sunshine Coast arena. Last year,  the average number of minutes in  penalities per game was 12. This  year for February the average is  64 minutes.  "If it gets any worse," says  Bruce, "then to hell with it." He  feels it's not worth being involved  in a game based on violence and  adds some players are even feeling that way. He knows that a lot  of fans have stopped coming to  the commercial league games because the hockey is getting too  rough and too vindictive.  Why do we have what Bruce,  refers to as the unnecessary  aggression in our hockey games?  Part of the problem he admits,  is maybe that officials are not  strict enough. Because of lack of  experience refereeingon the Sunshine Coast is not of the highest  calibre. In fact, Bruce is the only  referee certified by the B.C.  Amateur Hockey Association in  this area and he often asks other  certified refs from the mainland  and Vancouver Island to look after  some of the games. In fact he is  favoring the two feferee system  because a game is much easier to  police.  But although he admits that  refereeing here is perhaps a little  too lenient he hastens to add that  a lot of the guys come out to play  hockey and get rid of some of  their aggressions and if a game is  called too closely it frustrates the  players which in itself is groundwork for aggression.  What about the coaches? Do  they perpetuate aggression?  When that question is put to  Gerry Dixon, who coaches the  Gibsons club, he says he certainly  plays to win but that his strategy  is let the other guys get the penalties and we'll take advantage of  it. He criticizes the attitude of retaliation practised by some teams  and players because they waste  all their energy hitting rather  than putting the puck in the net.  Gerry also says that it's usually  not the entire teams that are aggressive but just a few of the players. Some players are naturally  aggressive on the ice and other  players seem to carry on a continuing feud.  "Some go after a man even  when he hasn't got the puck."  Gerry thinks that one way the  aggression might be alleviated  somewhat is to follow the rule  book a little closer. It's been suggested  here that body contact  DURING  THE last half of  this year, ties. That's too much, says official Bruce  games are averaging 64 minutes in penal-        Wormald.  Hockey play-offs start  Play-off games in the men's  commercial hockey league started last Sunday when Gibsons  played Pender Harbour in an  afternoon game. Results of that  game were not available at  press time.  ��� This week Thursday March  18, Roberts Creek meets Wakefield and on Saturday Gibsons  will play Pender Harbour if  necessary. Also if necessary an  afternoon game on Sunday  March 21 starting at 2:45 p.m.  Winners of the semi-final  games must win two out of  three games.  Finals will commence at the  beginning of April. April 3 is  the first game and if all five  games are necessary the last  game will be played at. the arena  April 10.  be taken out of the hockey games  but the majority of players' have  indicated they would like to keep  some body contact.  It appears that violence may be  too strong a word to characterize  the aggression that goes on during the games. The problem is not  that there is a high incidence of  fighting. As Bruce says, that's  not really a problem becausfe as  long as there are no sticks and  ' gloves involved, the players: are  usually allowed to engage in their  altercation and they soon; fall  down becauser of exhaustion. And  in order to curb fighting, a house  rule states that anyone involved  in a fight is automatically given a  three game suspension.  What the major concern is in  the commercial league is what is  referred to as the "dirty penalties". These are the penalties  resulting from such things as  charging and high-sticking. And  this type of aggression seems to  be perpetuated especially by two  of the teams involved in the  league.  This is' exactly the type of aggression that Bruce says is making a mockery of the game.  "You   can   have  two   rough  teams and still have a good clean  hockey game. Merely by keeping  the dirty penalties out of: the  ������ game.-"    ������ *--���.:������ "- -%\ _  Play-offs are now gettingfun-  derway in the men's commercial  league. The .referees are concerned that as competition gets  keener, so will the aggression.  One consolation, says Bruce, is  that during play-offs,  the full  length of the ice is used1 and there  won't  be  such  a  "crowding"  effect which he feels also tends to  make, some people a little more  , edgey than they should be;; 7���,; '$ -  - Is hockey night at the SumAtae A  Coast arena turning into gladiator ���;.  night at the forum? Bruce, for one  hopes the "unnecessary aggres-  ion" doesn't get carried any further. There is a danger of what  some hockey fans refer to as the .  Philaledelphia   Flyer   mentality  seeping  down   into  the   lower  ranks ��� the minor leagues. It's,  bad enough to have a bunch of  adults going out onto the ice to  bash each other around, without  the    pee-wees    attempting    to  emulate.  Bruce says that besides making  a few extra bucks, he referees the  .games for fun. And likes to think  that the players are out there for  the same reason.

All proceeds will go to the  Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation. Organizers of the derby  hope the Sechelt Timber Days  celebrations can be tied in with  the derby.  According to Sechelt RCMP, no  blame has yet been attached to a  February 29 accident on Porpoise  Bay Road involving a car and a  motorcycle.  An earlier story resulting from-  a recent Sechelt council meeting  indicated the driver of the vehicle  involved, Brad Allen Butler of Sechelt, had struck a juvenile on a  .motorcycle while "speeding"  along Porpoise Bay Road:  According to statements made  to police by Butler, his vehicle  was not speeding. He said he  pulled out to pass two motorcycles and one of the bikes attempted to make a U-turn, running into the side of his car.  The juvenile riding the motorcycle did not have a driver's  licence. According to the police  report, the juvenile claimed the  car was' 'moving fast.''  No serious injuries resulted  from the accident but Sechelt Village has posted 30 MPH signs  along Porpoise Bay Road to discourage speeding.

This is  possibly due to the fact that he is  a "bushy" person. Although he  w/as born and raised in Inverness,  Scotland, Ian has spent some  years in Canada's far north.  After coming to Canada in 1964  Ian became a fur buyer for the  Hudson's     Bay    Company    at  Spence Bay in the Northwest Territories. As he felt tied down in  Spence Bay, he gave up "The  Company" and worked his way  around  Canada,   doing  enough  work to  keep  his  appetite   in  check. He worked in mines and  fished for Tuna and salmon on the  west coast for three years, and  until he got into the camera business, Ian worked on the ferries.  .  ,AU through his travels, Ian has  kept, track of the birds in whatever area he may be. An avid  bird:watcher, he claims to know,  every bird on the Sunshine Coast  personally;   he  says  he  knows  WANTED  Used furniture 01 what  have yoo  Al'S USED FURNITURE  WE BUT BEER  BOTTLES  Gibsons ��� 886-2812  them "not intimately, but very  well." Ian also enjoys keeping  animals, such as tropical fish,  cats and dogs. Until three weeks  ago, Ian's constant companion  was a large Viesla Hound named  Rory, but a hit-and-run driver  took it upon himself to break up  that friendship.  As well as keeping pets, Ian  fills his time with such pastimes  as bridge and Monopoly.  "I think I can safely say that  I'm the best Monopoly player on  the Coast," he claims. If he  doesn't have a handful of cards  or play money, you can usually  find Ian with the Driftwood Players, with whom he has performed  in four productions and he has  even produced one of his own,  "The Velveteen Rabbit" which  was performed at last year's Sea  Cavalcade. Ian says the play was  rather hastily put together.  ' 'We finished writing it halfway  through the first rehearsal."  During the day, though, Ian is  behind the counter of his camera  shop doing minor repairs and  looking generally busy. His appearance, though well kept, does  tend to disturb some of the older  residents in the area. One afternoon last week, in a conversation  with a rather senior lady, I asked  if she had ever been in the shop  to buy her film and she said she  had.  "But he does have a rather  large beard, don't you think?"  Life  was  never like  this  in  Scotland.  Construction of the Pender Harbour Medical Clinic is now  progressing rapidly. The clinic is expected to be open  this spring.  Department would be  cause of mill increase  Ian Corrance "...looking generally busy.  GIBSONS PUBLIC LIBRARY  1490S. Fletcher Rd.

"It would seem to be inappropriate for boards to be blamed for  a decision which is exclusively  that of the minister of education," Mills said.'

Regional Board Chairman John  McNevin apologized to the board  for his handling of the situation  and stated that he believes the  board is now protected against  any loss as a result of a defaulted  payment.  The problem arose when two  developers, Redroofs Estates Ltd.  and Evergreen Properties Ltd.  failed to make payments totalling  $350,000 to the Regional Board  for installing a water system  along Redroofs Road. At the last  Regional Board meeting McNevin  informed the board that legal  action was being sought and early  last week McNevin instructed the  Regional District solicitors to  prepare a writ to seize the land.  The solicitor later talked to the  principals involved and it was discovered that the developers have  had difficulties in raising the  money and acquiring the necessary Health Department permits.  It was further agreed by the developers that they will sign a  tighter legal agreement by Tuesday if the funds are still not available. The Board granted McNevin  permission to sign this agreement  on their behalf.  McNevin further stated that he  was reluctant to put a lien on  the property until all other methods of extracting payment had  been considered. He apologized  for putting the board in the precarious position of having to come  JACK AND JILL  CHILD MINDING CENTRE  FALL ENROLLMENT FOR 1976  Interested Parents who have children age 4 by-  December 31 and have not already registered  please be sure to phone (After 4:30 p.m-.)

Area A Director Jack Paterson  later said that it would have been  "touch and go" if the board had  been stuck with the bill. Paterson  also criticized another development at Sunny Harbour Estates in  '.Area B that wanted to install sue  more houses on to a district lot  that already had eight residential  buildings. According to bylaws,  this property should be allowed  no more than two such structures.  The Regional District in attempting to be fair was proposing  to allow the houses to be built as  long as Sunny Harbour Estates  granted a road access through  their property to the neighboring  Sans Souci Development. Solicitor D. S. White appeared before  the Regional District Thursday  night to argue the Sunny Harbour  Estates case claiming that it was  unfair of the Regional District to  make building permits conditional on the granting of a road  access.  Paterson claims that Sunny  Harbour Estates is trying to uphold a "feudal system" of toll  roads and unregistered subdivisions.  The Regional Board advised  Sunny Harbour Estates to apply  for a Land Use Contract in the  normal manner.  ' l  Sunshine Coast News, March 16,1976.  by D.J. HAUKA  9  IZZ7CZ?

And now we touch on a huge,  raw, gaping wound. Despite public opinion and student pressure,  the good ol' school board (God  bless 'em.) has given the Grads  permission to smoke, drink and  wear shoes in the gym. We say  "Np way 1" The whole program,  especially the basketball games,  have been placed in jeopardy by  this decision. We had a little vote  at school a while ago on this issue  and the results were almost totally in favor of rejecting the proposal. The students and staff feel  that a much better idea is to allow  smoking and drinking in the cafeteria and allow only soft-soled  shoes in the gym.  If these humble suggestions go  .unheeded you might just see a  student riot (60's style) break out.  We've considered dredging up  some old videotapes of riots  "way back when" just to see how  it's done. The RCMP will be too  busy playing broomball to notice..  Of course, we won't be able to  chant "Hell no, we won't go,"  but we'll think up something else  by then.  It's fun to toy with the idea of  anarchy. Oh, almost forgot, the  whole Sunshine Coast is invited to  the rebellion - oops - homecoming.  Last Friday the Sports Council  had a hamburger sale. The prices  were suspiciously low. After waiting half an hour for my hamburger, I stomped out, loudly proclaiming I'd never eat at this establishment again. But I finally  got it and it wasn't all that bad.  As you are probably aware, I  spent March 3 to 7th at a  UNESCO Conference at Strath-  cona Lodge on Vancouver Island.  A complete report on that will appear in next week's paper. As for  schoolwork, with all the catching  up I had to do, I studied hard and  perservered, only to fall another  week behind.  Try telling your teachers that  you're behind in your work be  cause you've "been at a UNESCO  Conference." It just doesn't work  However, if you say to them "I've  been representing the school at  a seminar sponsored by the  United Nations," it works wonders.  I was informed by one of my  teachers that while I was away I  received a fan letter, which he,  then proceeded to lose. If seems  to me he said he "misplaced"  it. Thank you, Mr. Matthews.  Needless to say I never got a  chance to read it. So if one of you  readers sent me a fan letter',  thank you: (Or, Same to you!) Bui  with my luck, it was postmarked  Essondale."

Trustee Clayton's amendment  also eliminated the secretary-  treasurer from the selection committee. Secretary-treasurer Roy  Mills .agreed with that amendment because he wants to be  identified as a colleague of the  teachers and principals. He said  teachers would tend to be suspicious of the secretary-treasurer if  he was involved in the selection  and hiring process.  The board did not want to delay  the policy any longer because a  new principal will have to be hired for Madeira Park Secondary  when the resignation of the present principal, A.

Students participate in  ESCO Conference  Fifty-five senior high school  students from four west coast  communities have created a  "scenario of laws and guidelines  for living on the West Coast in  the future" at the UNESCO '76  Schools Conference at Strathcona  Outdoor Education Centre on  Vancouver Isalnd on March 3 to  7. The students from Campbell  River, Powell River, Elphinstone  and Courtenay Secondary schools  developed their recommendations  for the future on the theme of the  United Nations Habitat Conference on Human Settlements later  this year in Vancouver. The  theme of the Schools Conference  was "Laws for Human Settlements."  Attending from Elphinstone  Secondary were Grade 11 students Sharry Hancock, D. J. Hauka, Marilyn Monroe and Mike  McNevin. Frank Fuller, Social  Studies teacher accompanied the  students as a sponsor.  During the four days at the  Strathcona Centre, students  formed into five different groups  to develop and experience some  laws and guidelines for alternative living in the future on the  west coast. The student groups  constructed their scenario around  a number of key issues which they  felt needed to be examined in  future human settlements. The  issues included the environment,  basic survival, he economy and  work, education, law enforcement  and foreign policy.  A televised presentation of  each group's recommendations  was given to the full conference  assembly on Saturday night.  Common concerns from all of the  student scenarios included strong  environmental protection laws, an  education system which would  utilize the talents and wisdom of  senior citizens in schools in their  communities and equal distribu  tion of responsibilities for work.  The students also recommended  that while population growth  should be controlled, structures  should be set to ensure that the  opinions of children are heard.  The Conference, sponsored by  the Public Schools Legal Education Project of the Legal Services  Commission and UNESCO, will  have an ongoing input for the  Habitat Forum gathering in June  in Vancouver. Dale Kelly, a  Campbell River Secondary School  teacher and one of the conference  organizers expects that his students "will continue to develop  their recommendations in school  in preparation for a presentation  of the student ideas on human  settlements at the Vancouver  Habitat Forum."  Kelly added; "In just four days  the students built a complex series of laws and guidelines for living in the future. Back at the  school, our students will have.(  time to reflect on their broad  guidelines as well as to develop  more details about the kind of  future they want. We think that  the United Nations Conference  will be very interested in hearing  what students on the West Coast  feel about human settlements in  the world in the rest of this century."  Dick Hibbered, vice-principal  of Max Cameron Secondary  School in Powell River and Chairman of the UNESCO Schools Project added: "Our students will  also investigate a number of possibilities for the Habitat Forum  presentation. The recommendation which they worked out at the  Strathcona Conference should be  of value to government planners  for the future."  While constructing their scenario, the students participated in  a number of presentations and activities by resource people. In-  Sakinaw sez  NOTES FROM PENDER HARBOUR SECONDARY  by SUSAN McCRINDLE  The Grade 12 Community Recreation class arrived back from  Pemberton Last week after packing, snowshoeing, cross-country  skiing, and downhill skiing in a  one and a half day stretch. A  general consensus later revealed  sore muscles and the battle cry  ' 'If we can do this we can master  the power lines," which refers to  the grueling 20 mile hike scheduled for April 11. The Outdoor  Club has implied that we Grade  12s "couldn't hack the pace."  Last week we were almost visited by a herd of "higher education types," meaning representatives from UBC, SFU, BCIT and  Vancouver Vocational School.  However, "higher" powers pre-  "vented it.  The Powell River ferry broke  down so we spent an interesting  afternoon with Mr. Bagshaw from  Capilano College who came up  instead of down. He invited interested parties to view the col  lege and some students are planning to go there March 22.  It's been a busy place around  here lately. Monday, March 10  saw Dr. Curzon PhD with an electron microscope. First Aid continues first thing every morning  and a number of suspicious observers, namely three school  board trustees and the learning  assistance co-ordinator, keep poking their noses into classes. We  haven't had this many guests in  years, things must be looking up.  Last Friday we sent four teams  to Uclulet and next week another  group is off to Vancouver to see  a nuclear reactor at the Triumf  Centre. Other students will make  the trip into town to see a sewing  display.  Greaser Day, with an accompanying sock hop, will start off  the spring break March 26 giving  us a warm-up for the spring  dance April 23 starring "Bon-  sher."  Hope to see you there.

A Design-In by architect-educator Stan King of the  UBC Education V program saw  students design their own environment.

Hauka, one of the participants of  the UNESCO Conference, will  write a personal account of his  experience at the week long  event.  Teachers have  file access  A lot of the teachers in this' district will be making a trip to the  school district offices this week to  find out what school officials  have been saying about them over  the past years.  The school board passed a motion last week that will give  teachers in the district access to  their employment files.  The motion came last week after the Sechelt Teachers' Association earlier informed the board  that each teacher wanted the  right to have access to his or her  particular files.  SCRD board wants  employment proposals  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has asked Directors to  submit proposals for projects to  be accomplished under this year's  Summer Employment Program.  Chairman John McNevin pointed  out that the Board would be lax in  its responsibility to the community if if didn't take this opportunity to create work for local citizens  and at the same time improve recreational facilities at a cost of  about 10 percent of what would  normally be expected.  He went on to suggest that  there are many beach accesses  and small parks that could be  developed and it was also suggested that the Board look into  the establishment of a bicycle  route for both tourist and local  use while the man power was  available.  Directors are to have all suggestions in by March 18. Local  citizens interested in seeing a  particular project initiated should  contact their local Regional Board  Director.
