 itjfWHttvmjmt^vtti~iaiiJmm*^i 'imco'i1 '"-Hi "ji kwiu'whi���w^m���mjiumjE  Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  1  byDOUGSEWELL  Two weeks ago. the Sunshine  Coast Justice Council met to  discuss the issues of capital  punishment and gun control.  The results of that meeting  should be well known by  now. the council voted 32-7  for retention of the barbaric .  practice of hanging.  If there has ever been a case  of proven pre-rhedhated, first  degree murder surely it will  result from the decisions of  bodies such as this 'Justice  Council'.  The 'eye for an eye and a  tooth for a tooth' syndrome was  first    legalized    by    Hannibal  nearly 3000 years ago. Since  that time our methods of justice  have progressed considerably  but unfortunately we have never  quite freed ourselves of the  barbarism this edict implies.  In many cases we have fallen  into even worse practices. If I  slug someone in the jaw I will  probably go to jail for two or  three years instead of just  being able to let him take a  crack at me.  Capital punishment reached  it's peak under the Roman  Empire of Augustus Caesar, the  Circus . Maximus was a life  and death struggle that provided the 'punishment of death'  for failing to win a contest of  skills.   The   story  of  Christ's  cruxifiction tells of their attitude  towards 'petty crime'. The  early Christians tried to follow  Christ's teachings about  'turning the other-cheek' but  it wasn't long before they  began to realize that 'might was  right' and it is under the later  'Christian Emperors' such as  Nero that we find the most  decadent period of Roman  History.  Christianity continued to be  the main proponent of 'Capital  Punishment' until modern  times. The Crusades showed a  barbarism and a lack of respect  for human life that was to be  unequalled until this century  and under the infamous Spanish and French Inquistions the  'Punishment of Death' was  applied to thousands of Jews  and Infidels whose only crime  was that they were 'making the  world unsafe for pious people.'  Though these cases all apply  to a world much different  than our own, they show  the effects that a lack of respect  for human dignity and life can  have on a society. The excuses  have always been much similar  to those raised at the Justice  Council meeting, but it is not  logical to blame the criminal for  the downfall of a society that  has more often than not been  responsible for shaping his  personality and breeding his  contempt of the law.  It has only been forty years  since  'Germany   allowed   one  of the  greatest  criminals   of  all time to lead it to destruction.  Hitler rose to power by playing  on these same fears of crime  t and brutality that Canadians are  now reacting to so strongly. A  man who is willing to take the  7  life of  another  man  because  it   'might'  prove a  deterrent  ���..i to   others   contemplating   the  , same   crime   is   a   dangerous  ';������ man to have in power. It is inter-  ; esting that the only crime, other  ���y than   murder,   to   still   carry  7 the death penalty is treason.  7 Capital punishment along with  . such antiquated laws as the War  Measures Act are leaving us  (. open to a 'Hitler' who can play  on our fears. The leaders  of all three national parties  have declared their opposition  to capital punishment. It would  be easy for a fourth, more  radical opposition to get a firm  hold by supporting the rapidly  growing 'string'em up' faction.  The main danger to our society  lies in our reverting to the  barbaric practices of the past  not in our attempts to create a  better future.  No benefit has ever been  realized by inflicting capital  punishment, the murder rate  has been steadily rising since  accurate records have been  kept. The more complex a  society becomes, the more  frustration, tension and mental  illness is created. There are few  people in their right minds who  are willingxto murder just for  personal gain.  Though capital punishment  has failed to show any definite  benefits there are many cases  were it has shown it's faults  and many instances where  'murderers' have evaded  justice or later been pardoned  and have proved to be worthwhile citizens. I can think of at  least three families on the  Sunshine Coast who firmly  believe their fathers or grandfathers were on the run from  British Law when they came to  this part of the world. The skills  and talents these men brought  to the new communities proves  my contension that a man is not  worthless to society until he is  dead. In the cases of Australia  and French Guiana modern  nations were built by the  men who chose to remain in the  penal colonies after their  sentences were over, many of  these men had once been  doomed to the gallows but  instead had been sentenced  to transportation.  If a nation allows the 'Legal  Execution' of any man they  immediately open the doors to  the 'Alternate Justice' of the  accused. It must be remembered that the Crown serves as  a father figure to the nation. If  a father includes his teenage  (Continued on Page 3)  Sunshine Coast  Published at Gibsons, B.C.

Sechelt re j cct s  ffno growth" proposal  At a public meeting of the  Sechelt Vicinity Planning Committee on Sunday afternoon,  an audience of about 50 local  citizens considered three proposals for the future growth of  Sechelt. The Vicinity Planning  Committee, represented by  Regional Planner, Adrian Stott,  Doug Roy, a local engineer and  surveyor and Regional Board  Directors Morgan Thompson  (Sechelt) and Barry Pearson  (Davis Bay) explained that the  plans were intended to be a broad  outline; ofiihe type ;df growth 77  the community desired. This  would then give the Board an  indication of what the residents  wanted Sechelt to become so  that planning could be designed  to fit future needs.  The three choices as presented at  last Sunday's meeting were a  Regional Town, Public Recreation  Centre and a Resource Development Centre. The Regional Town  idea was designed to inhibit  the growth of the area by making  businesses that didn't directly  supply goods and services for the  .local;ccromumtyt unwekome, in  Sfcat-a-thon  to raise money  for youth groups  The first annual Skat-a-thon at the Sunshine Coast  Arena is scheduled for April 10. The skat-a-thon has been  organized to raise money for minor hockey and figure  skating clubs.  The public is invited to participate either as a spectator to encourage and cheer on a favorite skater, or as a  participating skater. The object of the skat-a-thon is to  skate as many laps as possible in a one hour time period.  Several dignitaries from the Sunshine Coast are expected to take part in the skat-a-thon. Representatives  of Gibsons and Sechelt council will be challenged as well  as fire chiefs, police, chairman of the Regional Board,  representatives of the Lions Clubs, the Kiwanis club,  Kinsmen club, cirling club and any other club or organizations who wish to enter or sponsor a skater.  To give sponsors an idea of how much to pledge on  skaters, officials of the skat-a-thon say it is not expected  to have anyone doing 150 laps in the one hour period except in the 14 to 18 year category.'Even then, officials say,  few will complete that goal.  They add that "It is doubtful any adult hockey player.  will endure such a physical task but from the grapevine  it has been rumored that the new arena manager, Ernie  Kos; is willing to challenge these fellows."    ���  Eight different categories have been established, the  first starting at 8 a.m. and the last starting at 5 p.m. A  detailed time schedule appears on the Sports Page.  ���  the area. Tourist developments  and industrial sites would be  discouraged though some light  industry would still be allowed.  The benefits of this pain would  be a small town atmosphere  and a quieter, less tourist orientated commerce. ���  The second plan, a Public  Recreation Centre allows for the  development of a major Provincial  Park along Sechelt Inlet for which  Sechelt would become the  resource centre, Adrian Stott  stressed that'this park would not  -Lbe*: automobile. ^Jxiented 7: but: ,  7 would insteatf be developed more  for camping~ and use by. foot,  passengers on a proposed new  direct Vancouver - Sechelt  passenger service. Commercial  tourism would not be allowed  to expand to any great extent  but it would be necessary for  Sechelt businesses to grow to  meet the increased demand for  accomodation and supplies. This  plan represented the middle  of the road, medium growth  option.  The final plan, a Resource  Development Centre calls for a  rapid development of both the  tourist and large industrial  areas. A plan to excavate the  huge gravel deposits on the east  side of the town would be allowed  and commercial tourism in the  form   of   small   boat   harbors,  marinas and campgrounds would  be encouraged. It was envisaged  by the committee that this plan  could mean an eventual population for Sechelt in excess of  20,000 residents.  The group that--attended last  Sunday's meeting was quick to  reject the no growth philosophy  of the Regional Town idea but  it was obvious that neither the  Public Recreation, nor the Resource Development options were  much more attractive. The  general feeling of the meeting  .seamed fistojjbe that -the 4>est |  i; solution ���; was a compromise '  between these two ideas.  After two or three requests  from the floor the committee  finally asked that a 'straw vote'  be taken. The results were:  Regional Town 3, Public Recreation Centre 17, and Resource  Development Centre 10. Quite a  .few people failed to vote because  they could not closely identify  with any of the proposed options.  It was commonly felt that it  was impossible to hold back  growth and development without  entirely stagnating in the process  and it was feared that if employment opportunities were not  increased it would become  impossible to convince young  people to stay in the area.  ��� Among other possibilities  (Continued dn Paoe 4)  GOING OVER IT one more time for nostalgia's sake is  Elphinstone geography teacher Frank Fuller.

MLA urges Davis to keep ferries  Gibsons Council briefs  Sewer function  creates problems  Regional District Area A director. Jack Paterson said this week  that he is concerned over the  problems that are arising with the  Regional District taking over the  function of overseeing the" maintenance of the sewer systems.  The provincial government used  to handle this job by sending out  an inspector each month to check  that the maintenance forms had  been properly kept up but recently Victoria decided this was too  costly and the buck has now been  passed to the Regional District. It  is expected to cost the taxpayer  another Vi mill.  Areas A and C have hot yet  signed this agreement and Paterson feels that it will be necessary  to call a public meeting because  the Pender Harbour-Egmont area  has never given the Regional District the right to tax them for  this service.  The" situation could soon become urgent because when a resort in that area changes ownership, under present circumstances, it would be prohibited from  re-opening because of a lack of  a Health Certificate.  The date of the public meeting  should be announced scon.  In his report to council, Aid.  Bill Laing said he would like to  see at least another $100,000  added to next year's budget for  road reconstruction as local byways are in rather rough shape.  Aid. Laing went on to say that  the sewage treatment plant, in  January and February processed  3,602,000 gallons of effluent and  that within the next few months,  the sewer system will be nearing  its peak workload, approximately  164,220 gallons per day.  The contract for clearing two  acres of land for the municipal  works yard, dog pound and pump  house has been awarded to Shoal  Developments of Gibsons. The  cost, which was not disclosed, includes clearing of timber and  lengthening of the road. The land  is located- near the corner of  Henry and Reed roads.  ������    ���   ���        ���  Aid. Jim Metzler presented the  wharfinger's report for Jack Richardson and disclosed that the  council is subsidizing the wharf  for about $200 per month. Last  month, revenues were $1128, and  costs were $1326.15. Legal proceedings are being taken against  five boat owners who have not yet  paid their wharfage fees.  Sue more letters have been received by Gibsons council concerning the neighborhood pub  proposal of MTR Holdings. All  six were in favor of the plan.  There was further development  on the proposed pub in the former  Flowerlaine Store on Gower Point  Road. The proponent, Mr. Davies  who impressed on council that he  had managed several pubs and  hotels-in his career, said the design was/that of a true English  pub, with a long bar, a free, full-  sized billiard table, dart boards,  crib boards, shuffleboard and a 30  square foot TV screen for sports  events.  The pub would be geared to  the tastes of older people and  would be for quiet drinking only  as there .would be no jukebox or  live bands; only piped in recorded  music. As there are only 11 parking spaces available, 'the focus  would be on .the non-driving  drinker.  Complete plans have not yet  been drawn up, and it was suggested to Mr. Davies that he contact the Liquor. Administration  Branch before he became too involved in his planning.  Don Lockstead, New Democratic MLA for Mackenzie, last week  urged Transport Minister. Jack  Davis to reconsider his decision to  sell three ferries which provide a  vital service to the people of  coastal British Columbia.  He said the sale of .the Prince  George has angered coastal residents who were anxious that it be  put in operation this summer.  "No sooner had Mr. Davis  dashed their hopes, when he announced that he would get rid of  the Queen of Surrey and the  Langdale Queen," Mr. Lockstead  said.    .    '  The Queen of Surrey, an ocean  going ferry bought in Sweden two  years ago, has been operating on  the Horseshoe Bay-Nanaimo run  but was intended to be moved to  the Kelsey Bay-Prince Rupert run  when new Gulf ferries are completed within the next few  months. Mr. Lockstead said the  additional ferry on the Prince  Rupert run is "essential and, to  do away with it, threatens an established transportation route  which cannot be serviced by the  present ferry alone."  He said he is amazed at how  shortsighted the Social Credit  government appears to be in  divesting itself of its only back-up  ocean going vessel. "It is certainly not the businesslike way they  talked about during the campaign," he said.  The third vessel, the Langdale  Queen, which runs betweeA  Horseshoe Bay and the Sunshine  Coast, was already scheduled to  be replaced. While he recognized  that the ferry is now "running on  a hope and a prayer," he urged  Mr. Davis not to take the ship out  of duty before adequate replacement is found.  "Mr. Davis must understand  that for thousands of British  Columbians living on the coast,  ferries are not a frill or an entertainment. They are,a necessity of  life," he said.  Celebrations need help  Pender Harbour Mayday  Referendum  to be held on  swimming pool  It appears the Gibsons Kins->  men swimming pool project has  been further delayed because  council has decided that the matter will have to go to public  referendum.  The referendum would take  place at the next municipal election in November of this year and  include regional district areas E  and F.  Members of the Kinsmen club  appeared before council last February in the hope of obtaining approval for the $600,000 swimming  ���pool project. Kinsmen have  agreed to pay the capital cost of  the project but asked the village  to take over the operating costs  once the pool was completed. The  village would have to provide an  estimated $10,000 out of a recreational budget to cover the yearly  operating deficit.  At that time council felt the surrounding regional district areas  should also contribute to the operating deficit because residents  living in those areas would be using the pool.  The swimming pool would be  located on village property adjacent to the Winter Club curling  rink.  After nearly 50 years of Pender  Harbour Mayday celebrations it  looks as though the famous ceremony at Madeira Park is finally to  be cancelled. Organized Phyllis  Kuntson said last week that the  handful of people still interested  in helping out cannot possibly  cope with all the preparations.  They are now looking for a group  or organization that would be interested in taking on the job, but  so far the prospects are dim.  The Mayday Celebrations were  begun about 1930 and have traditionally included sports events,  bingo, games, Softball and teen  and adult dances.  It would be a shame to see the  celebration fall by the wayside  after so many years, so get together a group of your friends and;  call Phyllis Knutson at 883-2406.  Sea Cavalcade  Although summer may still  be some time away, there are a  few people in Gibsons who are  already starting to wonder about  this year's Sea Cavalcade.  Who will be organizing it?  Qualifications for organizers,  including the co-ordinator, are  simple ��� interest and enthusiasm. And a little bit of time, of  course.  An entire organizing committee and a co-ordinator are needed now to get things rolling.  Lois McLean, last year's Sea  Cavalcade secretary, said she  wouldn't mind taking on the  same job if required.

When a person seems noticeably humble we wonder what he or she  is really up to. And when we are not  suspicious of humility we tend to dismiss it as something soft and doormat-  tish, as something not quite wholesome  and normal.  There is the man who ostentatiously exudes modesty like cheap perfume as  he belittles his achievements. But he  smiles becomingly when anyone mentions them. Oliver Hereford defined  modesty as "the gentle art of enhancing  your charm by pretending not to be  aware of it."  There is the woman who goes  through life being "poor-little-me ���  ��� the crushed daisy-type who uses her apparent helplessness and meekness, her  subtly aggressive humility, for getting  her own way.  Then there is the person ��� Dickens'  Uriah Heep is the classic instance ��� who  wears a camouflage of humility over his  ruthless desire to rule any'roost on which  he finds himself.  Self-deprecation is often a subtle  form of self-assertion and self-aggrandizement. This common ploy was demonstrated by the man who, when asked by a  psychiatrist if he had any day-dreams of  self-importance, replied "Oh no! I think  much less of myself than I really am."  In both traditional moral philosophy  and traditional theology humility is not in  the ostentatious putting-down of the self  but the self-forgetfulness which sustains  the compassionate service of the needs of  others, not in grovelling before other  persons but in serving their real good.  You are not humble when you are  concerned about whether or not you appear to be humble: that kind of thing is,  in the final analysis, a subtle form of  arrogance. It is a certain sign of arrogance to say, "How very good of me to  be so humble."  N'est-ce pas?  It seems occurences such as the  recent CBC application for a French  television station has perhaps spurred on  some paranoia among the aldermen at a  certain village council.  The village of Parksville has written letters to both Gibsons and Sechelt  councils, and presumably to other councils in this province, asking endorsement  of a letter to Premier Bennett.  The letter recommends to the Premier  that English be adopted as the official  language of British Columbia. i  Both Sechelt and Gibsons councils  made little comment on the matter and  with a little chuckle filed Parksville's  letter into dusty files of what one alderman termed ' 'the deep six."  To the Village of Parksville we say:  A waste of time and paper.  N'est-ce pas?  A promising partnership  Many of the old cliches, with which  we are all too familiar, have a special  ring of gloomy truth about them these  days. Just a quick look at the world situation today, and the anomalies in it, will  prompt even optimists to comment that  "it's darkest before the dawn." A pessimist on the other hand, will dourly proclaim that "it will get worse before it  gets better."   ���  What even that quick look shows is  that, after a period of unprecedented  growth, Western Europe now has its  highest unemployment in decades. We  know as well as any that Canada and  the United States are in the same boat.  Despite their soaring incomes, even  the oil-rich Middle Eastern cou tries  have found themselves in trouble. Their  plans for spending these new found  riches were just too ambitious and now,  suddenly, some of them are borrowing  money.  After many years of trouble, Britain  has at last entered a period of economic  crisis. Lawlessness, factional strife,  armed conflict and confrontation between  labor and management have become the  order of the day. Even optimists look unhappy and any pessimist will intone  dolefully that there "is no light at the end  of the tunnel."  Yet it is under just such conditions  that human beings respond best. History  is full of "darkest hours" overcome, as  will be the future.  During such times.the better idea  is forced to the surface. It may not necessarily be a new idea, but always it assumes new significance because of the  conditions under which it has flowered.  Often such an idea will spring forth in  many places at once.  From many diverse places, some of  them completely unexpected, has come  an idea which is beginning to find a great  deal of support.  The thought is simple: That government, business and labor have common,  complementary goals and that co-operation, not confrontation, would be better  for everyone.  This idea is based upon the understanding that business, labor and government are really partners, not opponents,  and that by co-operating, much more  could be achieved.  The Chamber of Commercein Bristol, England, has issued a document entitled ''A Call for Survival.'' Although the  publication castigates government for its  past mistakes, it also sets out a 10-  point program by which government  could properly satisfy the legitimate demands of business and labor as partners.  Another seven points in the same  document remind business of some of its  short-comings and responsibilities and its  need to be self-reliant and innovative.  A further seven points comment of labor.  The theme of the Bristol Chamber is  simply: "Recognize your common goals  and your role, then work together for the  survival of Britain."  That's not a bad idea.  We must overcome the situation we  have allowed to come about because of a  lack of co-operation between society's  vital elements, business, labor and government. We must set new bases for stability and progress.  ���Vancouver Board of Trade.  FIVE YEARS AGO  Study of an ambulance service  for Gibsons municipality is started by council.

The growing number of crimes,  deaths and accidents  involving  the use of firearms is a very proper concern of the citizens and  one fully shared by the Govern-  ment.Every year sees a further  increase in gun-related murders,  robberies, suicides and accidents  in Canada. In 1974, nearly 1500  persons died of gunshot wounds,  an increase of 30 percent over the  1970   number.   Firearms   were  used  in  one-half of Canada's  murders and in at least one-third  of the 15,000 robberies. They also  account for over one-third of the  annual suicides and many accidental deaths. No count is known  of the number of non-fatal accidents caused by firearms.  These are clearly statistics that  call for measures that will lead to  a curtailment of the incidence of  gun-related violence, both of a  criminal and non-criminal nature,  while at the same time avoiding  undue  interference with   legitimate ownership and uses of common firearms.  The Government's policy on  the control of firearms as set out  in Bill C-83 is designed to achieve  this  goal  through. a  series  of  reasoned legislative and administrative measures based upon the  following principles:  ��� the increased criminal liability for misuse of weapons.  ��� increased standards of care  for ownership and use of weapons  ��� decreased availability of  firearms and ammunition.  ��� screening of fitness to possess and use firearms.  ��� increased police powers, to  seize weapons.  ��� increased awareness of the  dangers of firearms abuse.  The measures are of a compre1-  hensive nature, directed both to  those who would use guns for  criminal purposes and to others  who, in using them for legitimate ends, must learn to do so  with greater respect and care. ;.���:  For those who use firearms as  tools of their criminal trade, no  registration or licensing system  will effectively curb access to and  use of weapons. For such criminals the real sanction is and must  be severe sentences. To this end,  the maximum penalties for unlawful possession or use of ordinary, as well as restricted and  prohibited weapons, are being  substantially increased. In addition, any person henceforth convicted of using an offensive  weapon while committing an indictable offence will receive a pri  son term above and beyond that  for the indictable offence itself.  For citizens who wish to own or  use common firearms for' legitimate purposes, a number of control   systems   were   considered  closely by the Government ��� total prohibition, firearms depositories, gun registration and possessor licencing. They were the  subject of a full study carried out  by Dean Martin Friedland for the  Government   during   1975.    Of  these, the one that is the only  balanced   and    reasonable    approach to the problem of controlling misuse of firearms is a system of licencing persons who possess guns. This system places primary emphasis on the proposition  that no person should be entitled  to possess or use a firearm unless  he can establish his fitness and  responsibility to do so. In other  words, ownership and use of firearms should not be a right but a  privilege.  The system of licencing will be  simple and flexible yet effective,  and with necessary safeguards to  ensure that no one will be unfairly deprived of the privilege to  secure a licence for legitimate  purposes. Here, I refer particularly to the sports hunter, the  target-shooter and, indeed, the  northern family for whom hunting  is a way and means of life.  I am also satisfied that the system reflects the belief shared by  the wildlife groups that there is  an important need for responsibility in the ownership and use of  guns. As we know there are some  one million hunters who readily  accept the requirement of a hunting licence in order to use their  guns.  It is important to screen out  those who are unfit to possess  firearms. It is also important that  those with firearms keep and use  those weapons in a responsible  manner. To erisure this, careless  handling and storage of firearms  will become subject to criminal  sanctions. I will also be urging the  provincial Attorneys-General to  provide in their laws a stricter civil liability for firearmmisuse.r  There are a number of other  important measures contained in  this bill which form part of the  Government's initiative to develop an effective means to curb the  growth of gun-related violence  in Canada. The Government does  not pretend for a moment that any  or all of these measures together  will eliminate the tragic and ruthless gun incidents that now occur.  What we believe it will do,  through the combination of sanctions, screening and reduced access, is reduce the occurrence of ,  such incidents.  Letters to the Editor  MISINFORMED?  Editor: In the March 9 issue of  the Coast News, Don McLean  writes in a letter to the editor  that "we are all ready to admit  that the congenial atmosphere of  the British pub has done more to  encourage close community ties  than any other organized or unorganized pastime ..."  As a resident of the "tight"  little isle for 25 years, I believe  Don is quite misinformed.  On the contrary, in Britain, as  here, booze is the number one  home wrecker, the number one  killer on the highways, and a disrupter of the national economy.  Don refers to talks with students of Elphinstone Secondary,  about "growing in terms of learning." Let's hope that these bright  students will help him get his  values straightened out.  Meanwhile, those interested in  more liquor outlets need no encouragement from the 'cloisters  of learning.'  ���E. W. amd EDNA DAVIES.  GRANDSTANDING  Editor: I would like to explain  to you and your readers my displeasure regarding a front page  article in the Coast News, Tuesday, March 9, 1976 concerning  me. The headline read "Alderman questions employee's work"  The short paragraph that followed expressed Alderman Morgan Thompson's concern that I  (the village's only permanent  works employee) was working on  the Sechelt Marsh Priject. The  insinuation is that I should have  been working elsewhere and decided      to      take      it      upon  myself to work on a project not  within the village's jurisdiction  and that I was not doing my  job right. Not so. My job assignments come from the village  clerk.  I resent the fact that your paper  used my name in an article regarding council politics. I only  work for the village, I am not involved in the heirarchy of council  business. As a result of your  damaging headline I have suffered a great deal of unjust, personal embarrassment. I do not  think I am being unfair in demanding an equal retraction and  apology from your paper. I only  hope that this style of grandstanding headlines is not an  example of what we can expect  from your paper in the future.  ���GERRY FREEBORN.  Editor's note: We apologize to)  Mr. Freeborn for any embarrassments caused by the inferences  made by some readers. However,  we do feel that Aid. Thompson's  statement, as quoted in the story,  indicates that Sechelt council (or  the clerk) is responsible for your  work assignments and not yourself.  Also if you object to a newspaper using your name, you  should speak to village council.  Any matter discussed in open  council 'meeting is public knowledge.  CAN TWIN  Editor: The subject of this letter concerns the fact that you  can't win.  ' Three years ago we found what  we were looking for, a small piece  of acreage on Cemetery ' Road  where we could have a garden, a  few chickens, and some piece and  quiet.  We then began a job that took  almost two years and much hard  work to complete. But it was  worth it; our dream of building a  log home was realized. 1 love our  home and our property but something has happened to disturb my  serenity. The peace and quiet we  were searching for is gone.  Shoal Development has installed a rock crusher next door to  us. This came as quite a shock as  Doug Fraser of Shoal Development had assured my husband  quite some time ago that such a  thing would not happen. As a  matter of fact, he told my husband not to worry, that he was  only going to remove some gravel, terrace, and sell,  The rock crusher generates, an  incredible amount of noise which  is quite unbearable. I would say  to anyone who thinks I'm exaggerating, come up for coffee some  day and listen.  Noise is a form of pollution  and Cemetery Road is becoming  quite polluted lately.  ���BARBARA CATTANACH  VITAL WORK  Editor: I was interested and much  heartened to read in the March  10 issue of the Comox District  Free Press about the 55 senior  high school students who created  'a scenario of laws and guidelines  for living on the West Coast in the  in the future' at the UNESCO  '76 Schools Conference at Strathcona Outdoor Educational Centre  recently.  We need to hear more and  more from young people if we are  to hope for survival now that,  traditional and hidebound ways  of thinking are proving to be  totally useless and irrelevant.  I   wish   these   students   every  free trees  Both Gibsons and Sechelt are  going to cash in on the provincial  government's free tree give-away  The trees, all 2,6 million of them,  were bought by the' NDP government for the Habitat conference.  The seedlings will not be planted  at Habitat because the federal  government declined to finance  its share of the tree project.  The provincial government has  since made the trees available to  municipalities, regional districts,  and cities.  At last week's council meeting,  Mayor Larry Labonte suggested  that a village truck make the journey to Surrey to pick up as many  trees as possible.  Sechelt council also backed that  idea and suggested the two villages and the regional district  pick up a minimum of 1,000 of the  local and exotic seedlings currently 12 to 18 inches high. One  Sechelt alderman, Dennis Shuttleworth, said this was a "golden  opportunity for the arboretum."  Aid. Shuttleworth has been a proponent of a Sechelt arboretum for  some time and he said a nursery  containing some of the exotic  trees would be a good start for  such a project. :  The provincial government has  already indicated that Crown  land near the arena would be available for the arboretum project.

In the meantime, may I recommend   to   them   (in   case   they  have not already read it) 'The  Crazy Ape' by Albert Szent-  Gyorgyi, M.D., PH.D., Nobel  Laureate (Philosophical Library  Inc., New York). This short  book, which states on the title  page that it was 'written by a  biologist for the young' is worth  very serious study.  'We must make a new beginning.' states Szent-Gyorgi, z'but  it is only the youth who can make  it  by  building  a  new  world.'  Vancouver Island Regional  Library has it. - so, hopefully,  do libraries in Powell River and  Gibsons.     Please    request    it.  Keep up the vital work, students! And thank you all.  Deeno Birmingham  Courtenay  EIGHT GOALS?,  Editor: In the March 16 issue  of the Coast News you have a  picture of a hockey game and the  score was- 9 to 4. You listed the  scorers for the winning team  and the number of goals they  scored. I counted eight points.  Is the real answer eight points  or nine?  Trevor Blair  Roberts Creek  Editor's note: The answer is  nine. If you read the caption  again the total number of Roberts  Creek goals add up to nine. Did  you count the goal by Ed Lands?  byDOUGSEWELL  Motorists travelling along  Highway 101, especially between  Secret Cove and Halfmoon Bay*  have recently begun to wonder  whether their eyes are" playing  tricks on them. It seems that the  embankments along the side of  the road have suddenly turned  green. Not grass green, just a  kind of washed out, powdery looking off-white type green.  A,quick call to the Highways  Department soon convinced me  that I had not seen green snow.  The mixture which has been  sprayed on the embankments  during the last couple of weeks,  the Highways spokesman assured  me is merely a mixture of grass,  fertilizer and chemicals designed  to control the growth of alder  trees and to prevent firther water  and wind erosion.  And I bet you hadn't told  anybody about the "green snow"  you saw when you went to Pender  Harbour.  Highways  patch road  Sechelt council's concern over  the fact that Department of Highways trucks are tearing up a village street have been somewhat  alleviated.  Aldermen noted at last week's  regular meeting that the Highways Department has agreed to  place crushed rock on Inlet Ave.  after trucks had damaged the  pavement. The trucks were using  Inlet to haul rock from Highway  101 to the Sechelt waterfront  where it was dumped to re-inforce/  the banks.  In other Sechelt council news,  $500 was voted to go to the Timber Days committee so work could  get started on the annual May  celebrations. The motion was  made by Aid. Frank Leitner.  Wharf not  for Sechelt  Sechelt council has turned down  an offer from the federal government to take over the Porpoise  Bay government wharf. A similar  rejection was made by the Regional District board recently for  two wharves in the Pender Harbour area.  If the village did accept the  responsibility for the wharf, one  person would have to be hired to  collect berthage fees. Council decided the village should not han-r  die the wharf because it would not  be a money making proposition.  In other council news, Sechelt  will apply for funding to hire four  students th^s year to work on various village projects. Clerk Tom  Wood named a number of different jobs the students could under-;  take and Aid. Morgan Thompson  said a specific program should be '���  setup.  The students will be hired.for  two months. \        ���       '      '  h  * UNESCO      Conference  Sunshine Coast News, March 23.1976.  __.

Two weeks ago a 'help Guatemala' campaign was launched in  every classroom of Gibsons Elementary school and when the  campaign closed last Friday,  $353.50 had been raised by the  students.  .The campaign was initiated by  the visit of Marilyn Forrester,  who is associated with Oxfam in  Vancouver. Ms. Forrester talked  to the students about the devastating situation in Guatemala  after the recent earthquake. In  her talk she focussed oh San Martina, a village about 50 miles.  from Guatemala City, approximately the size of Gibsons.  Slides depicting the Guatemalan way of life were also shown  as well as actual samples of the  exquisite weavings in the form  of ponchos and wall hangings.  Students heard about the desperate need for plastic sheeting  and roofing materials.  Some students chose to work as  a group and in four evenings  collected a total of $191.53.  These students were: Sabina  Foss, Jane Massingham, Kim  Clapham, Gillian Morrow, Mari  Ann Dawe, Shirley Ten, Raymond  Tremblay, and Lisa Bjornson.  Rick Kinne, Dianne Wilson,  Debbie   Peterson,   Linda   Ten,  Shari   Graham,   and   Debbie  Middleton also collected on an  individual   basis   after   school.  Rina Turner, Claire Bujan,  Monique Rivard, Tracey Strom,  Sigrid Skogmo and Sharon  Enevoldson were responsible for  the distribution and collection  of money containers each day.  Mrs. Mackenzie's class counted  the proceeds.  The school is deeply concerned  about the unfortunate people  in Guatemala and students  and staff thank the generous  people of Gibsons for their  contributions.  Time to forget an 'eye for an eye  (continued from Page 1)  son in his plans to knock off the  corner gas station how long  will it be before his son is  robbing banks for a living. We  learn by example and if the  government agrees that it is all  right to execute a man as long  as you follow a list of proscribed  events, then how is it possible to  convince a person that they  should not take a 'murder of  justice' into their own hands  when the authorities refuse to  act.  Last week the Coast News  printed three pro-hanging  letters in the 'letters to the  editor' .section of the paper. I  was astounded by the lack of  thought that appears to have  been given to such an important  question. In the first letter,  Gunter Beyser informs us that  a Christian can defend his belief  in capital punishment by  believing that there is'Iife  after death, nothing happens  without the will of God'.  The implications are astounding. -If the  six  million  Jews  fed into Hitler's gas ovens  were there by the will of God  I suggest it is time we re-think  our philosphy and religon.  Mr. Beyser's next contention  is that it is indefensible to  support a known murderer at  societies expense for a period  of twenty-five years or more.  The total cost of keeping the'  fifteen or so men on Canadian  'death rows' is about three cents  per annum for every Canadian  tax payer. Hardly a valid point.  It is Mr. Beyser's last statement  though that really makes one  wonder about the amount of  consideration he has given the  subject, 'I definetry disagree  that the death penalty is a  murder of revenge. It is rather  the inflicting of a just punishment and without punishment  rehabilitation is not possible, or  at least doubtful.'  In the next letter by Karl-  Heinz Schoers we run across  this astounding paragraph  'remember that you have no  right to carry out the death penalty yourself and you will not be  OBoaoBQoaaoocwa  Wardair Appointment  Wardair of Canada is pleased to announce  that Peninsula Travel Agency has been  appointed EXCLUSIVE AGENT for  Wardair of Canada.

The law will do  so. Therefore don't feel bad  about a deed you have never  performed." Has our society  really deteriorated to the point  where someone else must carry  out the laws we help to create  because we lack the moral courage to stand by our own convictions. It would be interesting to  see how long capital punishment would last if the executors  were picked on the same basis  as the jury.  In the final letter from H. G.  Robertson of Sechelt the recent  death of Mary Steinhauser during the B.C. Penitentiary incident is dragged into the situation by his claims that if the  "Oakalla hostage principals had  been executed . . .Miss Steinhauser would still be alive today." Though ' this theory  sounds reasonable it contains a  couple of basic faults, first that  unless we are willing to execute  all long term prisoners these  kind of situations will not be  stopped and secondly, Miss  Steinhauser by her own choice  worked in a dangerous environment. It would make more sense  to lay the blame on the prison  administration and the guards  for allowing the situation to develop. The men who work for  the penal system are paid to  prevent incidents like this and it  is time we demanded that they  do a better job.  The issue of capital punishment is far too emotional to be  handled by a show of hands at a  local "justice council" meeting.  The retentionists seem unaware  that there is little to be gained  by retaining the death penalty,  the deterrent factor is doubtful  at best, the cost factor is negligible and proper prison security  and parole systems should prevent the repetition of the crime.  On the other hand though the  by D.J. HAUKA  I should' entitle this article  'What I did at Strathcona Lodge,'  but if I did I'd never stop writing.  Well, I might repeat myself a little but I could write a lot. The trip  up was a story in itself.  The trip on the ferry was as any  other crossing of old Howe Sound  but trying to get into the ferry line  up for Nanaimo took just about as  long. It seems they've changed  the setup there quite a bit. When  we finally got there, after going  down some one way streets improperly, the lineup wasn't moving. Mike McNevin, who along  with Mr. Fuller, Marilyn Munroe,  Sherry Hancock and myself made  the trip, went up to the little blue  booth to find out what was wrong.  As it turned out the cashier's cash  register wasn't working.  After the four of us wasted about  $10 on an arcade hockey game we  arrived in Nanaimo. The journey  to Strathcona was done in pleasant stages. We drove leisurely  through Qualicum, stopped at  Courtenay for coffee where Mike  and I revisited old sights from the  drama festival we participated in  a couple of years ago. Then to  Campbell River where we visited  my brother Gordon and had more  coffee, and finally to the lodge  at Strathcona where he had coffee again. After spending half an  hour in the W.C. we proceeded to  mingle. Mike made several comments as to the structure of the  young ladies' legs and various  other banalities.  So on the first night after a few  introductions and a good dinner,  we were told what we were there ���  for. this was a UNESCO sponsored affair and what they expected of five different groups of  students from 11 different schools  was nothing less than this: "In  the four days, come up with an  - alternate lifestyle and culture."  The amazing thing about it was  it was accomplished.  After watching films on self-  sufficiency and ecology we then  retired to our cabins. I was in  group four and got to know the  ' people in our cabin pretty well.  After some initial difficulty with  lighting our fire (it turned out we  had a running battle with, the fire  from then on) we turned in about  3 a.m. We ran out of jokes to tell  and dropped off to slumberland.  The next morning we made a resolution that in our new society the  hours of 7, 8 and 9 a.m. should  not exist and anyone rising at that  time who expects others to get up  should be shot, hung or put in a  coma. Why? Well, you try getting  dangers of retaining the penalty are considerable. We stand  to lose much of the humanism  that has developed in the modern world and at the same time  we could lose the respect of  many other nations who are now  reaching the same threshold.  It would be a different story  if our courts were infallible, if  we could somehow differentiate  effectively between the cold  blooded murder for gain and the  murder that was instigated by  emotional or psychological problems. It is unfortunate that our  courts are human and that they  can make mistakes.  In 1965 five men were sentenced to death and executed for  the murder of a young woman in  Texas. In 1968 the real murderer confessed and it was discovered that the men had been  falsely condemned to death. Is  there any member of the Justice  Council who could explain to  those men's families why they  had been killed? The judicial  system must always remain  flexible enough to admit its own  errors.  Perhaps what scares me the  most though is that the Justice  Council also applied its recommendation to "deaths resulting  from drunken driving." If manslaughter is next on the list to  receive capital punishment,  where will it be stopped? After  it is applied to kidnapping,  rape, child molesting? It is easier to totally abolish the death  penalty than to say it should  only be applied to first degree  murder.  Probation Officer Neil McKenzie has probably summed it  up best: "If you're against killing you're against it all the  way." It is time we started asking what breeds crime rather  than just taking "an eye for an  eye."  up after five hours sleep, to a  cold, cold cabin with your clothes  only five feet away.  But we did make it to breakfast, by some miracle of nerve,  just in time to see the syrup coagulate. The grapefruit couldn't  be cut in half, and the pancakes  would have made great frisbees.  Aside from that, it was a wonderful morning. We had something  called "interpersonal relations"  which is really an icebreaker to  get people to know each other.  Jim Seiner, a UBC counsellor,  told us to walk around and shake  everybody's hand, then we shook  elbows, knees, shoulder and then  I might have known that the falling trust game would come next. I  might have but didn't. This game  is where a group of people form a  circle and some one is put into the  centre and literally falls Over and  is pushed around the circle with  their eyes closed. It takes a lot of  trust in your group to catch you. A  fall of six inches is magnified  greatly without sight.  All morning and afternoon we  did similar things and about 4  p.m. the groups got together to  plan their society. The imaginary  situation was tt_: We were militants in our home country, advocating change in our society. For  this we were banished. The government had given us $10,000 per  group for what we needed.  They also provided a boat, truck,  tractor and free medical care. Our  objective is to become self-  sufficient. What do we need?  After a long discussion it was decided that, all the basics were  needed, along with such things as  tools, seed and building materials. That evening we watched a  film called "Citizen Harold" in  which a good intentioned man is  shunted from door to door and  finally gives up trying to get  through all the bureaucracy over  a simple thing such as cutting  down a few trees. With this in  mind a government was out of the  question in our little settlement.  Our group also made dinner  that night. It was the best chili  anybody there had ever had. Being monitor (the one who stands  at the head of the food line to  make.sure that nobody makes a  pig of themselves) I took most of  the credit, when, in fact, I had absolutely nothing to do with the  preparation or cooking. Consequently, guess who had to do the  dishes.  The social life would have  been great too but for a slight  mischance. There was an attractive young lady whom I invited  down to the cabin for a cup of tea.  When we got there the door  wouldn't open.  "No matter," I said archly,  "we'll just go over to your  place. I was rather staggered at  what followed.  . "No," she said. "Get the  key."  "Why?"  "Get the key."  A little later I found myself running through the snow to the  main lodge, and after a repeat  performance of "Citizen Harold"  I trudged back to the cabin and  found, the door had merely been  jammed. If I had kicked it, it  would have opened. Well, I  thought, I'll just trudge over to  her cabin. I did and knocked on  the door.  "Whois it?" she asked.  "Me," I called lightly.  "Me, who?"  I could tell from that moment  on it wasn't going to be an enchanted evening. I walked back to  my cabin. No great loss, I thought  Be happy boy. For some reason I  kicked the oven door and nearly  broke my foot. And all for no  reason. The next morning I awoke  with a vision of an angel with  glory streaming around her face.  When the fog cleared it was  Maureen, the young lady of the  previous night, hovering over me  with a nice hot cup of steaming  tea.  "Sorry about last night," she  smiled.  "No matter," I said taking a  sip of tea. Being not quite awake I  commented about no cream and  sugar and for some reason she  stalked angrily from the room. I  tried to convince myself she did  so because one of my cabin mates  was waking up.  More than half frozen, Brian,  Hugh and myself (all from the  same cabin but different schools)  stumbled into the main lodge.  After a terrible breakfast we listened to a lecture called Dominance and Environmental Laws.  This helped us plan power structures and ecology. Then we prepared lunch which consisted of  tomato soup and toasted cheese  sandwiches. A psychologist, one  of the many helpers there, walked  up once while I wasn't looking. As  monitor it was my job to watch  him, so his second time around  I watched as he took two sandwiches.  "Professor," I said to him and  about 50 other spectators, "taking two when you've already had  one. You're only allowed two you  know."

Recreation option approved  (Cantkmed Cram Page 1)  discussed were encouraging  senior citizens to settle in Sechelt  and developing an ever broader  recreational service town. Clarence Joe, manager of the Sechelt  Indian Band said 'the Indian  Reservation is the only tourist  attraction on the peninsula'  and that if we are going to  develop along tourist service  lines we had better develop  more attractions for the holiday  business.  It was stressed that the results  of this meeting were not final  and it was suggested that a  questionnaire be circulated again  and that the large charts depict  ing the development areas be  displayed at the Trail Bay Mall. It  was also hoped, that another  meeting would be held and that  more    people    would    attend.  Regional' Board Chairman,  John McNevin summed up the  meeting by saying that it was  obvious that both the Public  Recreation and Resource Development options had merit  and that the logical solution  would seem to be an amalgamation of the two.  The Regional Board will  discuss the results of this session  at its regular board meeting  on March 25.

(WHAT D.J. did at Strathcona Lodge)  I was well on my way to destroying him, when he said very  softly, "Now son, don't you think  you're assuming a lot? Did you  see me take one before? Be honest now." Soon, it was me looking like the jigsaw puzzle in front  of everybody. I was so upset I let  Mike get away with three cheese  sandwiches.  After a few more films on pop  ulation control we went back to  the cabin.  "Hey," I shouted, "isn't there  anywhere I can get a shower?" It  was then I was informed that not  a hundred feet from the cabin was  a combination shower-sauna.  With cries of "Far out!" I  grabbed a towel, borrowed  Hugh's shampoo and raced over.  After a satisfactory shower I was  sitting in the Sauna and suddenly  there was laughing, squealing  and general ruckus. Upon investigating, I found I had been left  with only a towel, my jacket and  boots to get back to the cabin  with. My other garments had  been pinched. After going back to  my cabin and changing into more  clothes, I stormed into Cabin H  where these articles were stacked  CHARLES ENGLISH LTD.

Later that evening there was a  dance as I sat vainly trying to  dutifully write my daily notes. I  wanted to throw my pen away.  Gradually, I began to wonder why  I was writing. Why was I not,  dancing? Because you can't  dance. Why can't I dance? Because your waterlogged boots .  won't lift off the ground. Maybe  I'll quit the paper. That's it, I'll  quit the paper for one dance;  Come the next morning we  were assailed with the thought we  had to make a presentation that  night of all we had accomplished.  Obviously it would take a miracle  or two to get our vague dreams of  Utopia down to a concrete form.  As we had a young man with  immense musical talent in our  group named Jeef (he spells it  Jeef) we decided to write a song.  Not a bad one either.  So comes the big night. Group  one writes a song, slightly  plagarized but very good. Group  two writes a song, group three  does a-play.  Then comes our  turn. We sing, not bad. Group  five comes up; what they did was  a play called "The Midgets." It  was all very complicated but what  it amounted to was having four  people play two midgets, two as  torsos and two as hands and feet.  Mike McNevin played the hands  and feet of one midget. The  hands never quite co-ordinated  with the body, and the play was  hilarious, but it got its point  across. The point.put across by  everyone that night was that people need to get back to the earth,  to be content with a simple existence in body, and that everyone  has an unlimited world within  him.  . After the dance that night we  were left with the awesome prospect of leaving in the morning.  I suggested we should do something to celebrate so we quietly  stole up to the kitchen and began  to "borrow" about 100 hot dogs,  and all the mustard, relish, ketchup, butter and buns to go with  them. Suddenly I felt somebody  behind me. I turned and saw a  huge menacing teacher standing  in the doorway. I shoved my  hands in my pockets, changed my  expression to one of bright eyed  innocence and began to whistle.  Everyone else turned around.  "What are you kids doing in  here?" Ted the teacher boomed  menacingly.  "Lifting some hot dogs," we  answered.  ' 'What are you going to do with  them?"  "Cook them in our cabin."  "Well," he said brightly,  "save me four, I'll be down in  about five minutes." Thus saying  he vanished and so did we.  We stayed up so late I never  bothered to go back to my own  cabin. I simply stole Mike's bed.  My reluctance to return to my  cabin was well founded. There  was this big slope between me  and the cabin and I wasn't about  to go down it in the dark. It had  been very warm that afternoon  and the snow had turned to slush  but now the slush had turned to  ice. Getting up the hill had been  hard enough but I wasn't about to  slide down. I didn't get much  J.W.Visser  885-3300  Don Sutherland  885-9362  George Cooper  -886-9344  local Kinsmen campaign for the lottery  which offers a grand prize of $100,000  THE FIRST TICKETS for'.-the Kin Win  $100,000 lottery were sold to Sechelt  Mayor Harold Nelson,Meft^and Gibsons';t������"���-., and $133,0004n total prize money.

When I told him to  shut up, he told me to take a left  turn off the highway.  Then came morning and summing up time. After all the thank  yous a questionnaire was circulated. The temptation to ruin it  was terrible but I behaved myself. I had a desire to answer  questions such as "Born?" with a  yes and other such things that  turn this otherwise model student  into a smart derriere. Saying  goodbye was hard after five days  of living together. Nobody wanted  to go home, but the goodbyes  were said and the journey home  began.  The trip back was like the trip  up, in nice easy stages. I even fell  asleep, and I am told I snored.  After lunch at Courtenay and coffee at Qualicum Beach we went  full out on the last stretch to the  ferry. We missed the ferry. Well,  not really, we were left behind is  more truthful. A ferry can take  only so many cars, and as usual,  guess who was left behind ?  And so after wasting more  money (a tennis game this time)  we arrived at Horseshoe Bay.  This time we had no problem  getting back into the terminal. A  quiet, thoughtful trip home and  the great journey ended. I walked  into the house and undressed.  Sleep left me with only a few  memories before returning to my  prior existence.

'.-;-���-������'��������� ������'!'St^l?^^S^i_^iy     New books in Library  It has been said the French  filmmaker Roger Vadim is  looked upon more for his personal  life than for his screen accomplishments. Certainly, he can be  regarded as a man who has raised  eroticism to an art. In this 1974  French-Italian-German co-production, originally called "La  Jeune Fille Assassinee" (The  Murdered Young Girl), he has  written, produced, and directed  a study of death as the ultimate  pleasure.  This is Vadim's first film to be  seen in America since "Pretty  Maids All in a Row" (1971), his  only Hollwood-made movie, although he's done two other pix in  between ("Helle" and Brigitte  Bardofs "Don Juan 73"). He also plays a leading male role as an  author who is fascinated with the  death of young Sirpa Lane, a girl  whom he knew briefly. Although  Mathieu Carriere has confessed  to the murder, someone else may  be guilty and only at the climax  are the circumstances made clear.  As director, Vadim is more concerned with the sexual aspects of  the plot rather than the mystery:  there is plenty of nudity and sex.  Carriere is seen in a transvestite  revue. Some scenes are quite well  done and, overall, the production  is a stunner. In French, with English titles.  The B.C. film classifier has  rated this film restricted. It plays  at the Twilight theatre March 28,  29 and 30.  Call of the Wild, a general  rated nature film plays March 25,  26, and 27.

Discreet Charm called wierd and subtle  by ALLAN CRANE  I heard one of the audience  for The Discreet Charm of the  Bourgeoisie who thought The  Milky Way. a better film, one or  two who found it wierd rather  than wonderful, and one who  found the humor rather more  subtle than she had hoped it  would be. By and large, how-  eyer, the film seems to have been  greatly enjoyed, and one of our  members was seeing it happily  for the third time.  Of this week's film, L:e Fan-  tome de la Liberie, Bunuel's latest film made in 1974, Time  Magazine for Oct. 21, 1974 says:  The movie is black and blasphemous in Bunuel's manner. It  is not so piquant as his recent  Discreet Charm at the Bourgeoisie, but it is full of effusive invention and flourishes of high humor that do not seem to tax the  74-year-old director in the least.  When I was speaking of the  film to Vancouver artist Michael  Morris of the Western Front,  however, I was told that Fantome  was a fantastic film which took  Discreet Charm a step further,  and another of our members who  saw the film in Vancouver where  he is now working also maintains  that it is a truly wonderful film.  Both are planning to travel to  Vancouver to see the film, and  Michael thought we were astonishingly fortunate to be able to  see Bunuel's last two films in  such close juxtaposition. The following is an extract from a review from The Monthly Film Bulletin of February, 1975.  Using precisely the same technique (as for Discreet Charm) of  interrupted narrative in Le Fantome de la Liberie, Bunuel this  time makes the interruptions  yawn more widely, switching  thematic ground on each occasion so that the audience is. suspended, as it were, over an uncharted abyss. Precisely as he did  in L'Age d'Or, in fact; and pre  cisely the same motifs recur in the  new film, which once again makes  the human mind, haunted by its  ineffectual attempts to come to  terms with Marx's "phantom of  Liberty", the battleground for a  subversive challenge to conventional attitudes to sex, religion,  politics. All three themes are introduced in the prologue where  the Spaniards stoutly reject the  offer of liberation from their  oppression with cries of ."Vivan  las cadenas!" ("Long live  chains" or "Down with Liberty!" as the English title has it,  following Bunuel's French subtitle.)  The next item is an extract from  Sight and Sound, summer of  1974:  Le Fantome de b IJberte is  Bunuel's 31st film, since Un  Cbien Andalou launched him on a  career that has a beginning, no  middle, and an astonishing still  continuing third act. The new film  promises to be his most whimsical, one of his most youthful and  possibly his most innovatory,  since it has no characters running  right through but only characters  relaying each other. 'Le hasard  des rencontres.' There are 58  speaking parts, nurses, gendarmes, soldiers, a doctor getting  slapped and a little girl waiting in  the office of a police chief while  he issues an all points bulletin to  find her. There is a telephone located in a grave. There is a tank  hunting rabbits and an opening  sequence taking part during the  Napoleonic Wars.  The opening is not only passably Bunuelian but historically  correct. When in 1814 the Spaniards finally managed to chase  Napoleon's armies back across  the Pyrenees, after a six-year conflict that saw the invention of  guerilla warfare, they didn't  choose freedom but restored to  the throne Fernando VII from who  the French had liberated them in  1808. In the streets of Madrid,  the restoration of the decrepit  and debauched king was accompanied by chants of "Vivan las  cadenas" ('Long live the chains.')  In his opening sequence, Bunuel  has French soldiers line up and  shoot Spanish guerrilleros. Before the prisoners fall under the  bullets, they shout "Vivan las  cadenas."  Next, we see the ragged French  troops in a church in Toledo,  drying their rain-soaked uniforms  on the altar and turning spits of  roasted pork over fires started  with wood from broken pews.  Next, we are in Paris, 1974.  ���        ���       *  Tickets for the upcoming Film  Society dance on April 3 are now  available to members only at the  Dogwood Cafe and at Whitaker  House.

The Sunshine Coast Arts Council sponsored a juried art show on  Saturday at the United Church  hall in Gibsons. Artists responded  with a large variety of paintings  and drawings in many mediums,  and Prof Sam Black of the Fine  Arts Department of UBC, who  juried the show, remarked on the  very high quality of work being  done in this area.  He chose a watercolor painting  by Joan Thomson Warn as first  prize in the painting section,  with honorable mention going to  Steve Holecka, Pauline Lawson,  Brett Osborne, Mr. Finlayson and  Trudy Small. In the drawing section he awarded first prize to  Steve Holecka for a pencil drawing, with honorable mention going to Joan Warn, Steve Holecka  and Vivian Chamberlin.  During the day, members of  the public who attended voted on  their favorite painting and drawing and chose a painting by Joan  Thomson Warn, and a drawing by T^ff-|i a j g*  Steve Holecka. As these two had 1'IUSIL  already been awarded earlier  prizes, the public popularity  prizes were awarded to the run-  ners-up, who were Pauline Law-  son for her painting, and Vivian  Chamberlin for her drawing.  Fine weather and a pleasant  tea added to the enjoyment of all  who attended, and a beautiful display of illuminated printing by  Elizabeth Lowe, and an interesting metal sculpture by John Warn  added another dimension to the  show.

A   KEN'S  FOOTS  Gibsons, B.C.  A   White   Man's   Country:   An  Exercise  in Canadian Prejudice,  by Ted Ferguson.  "  Doubleday Canada limited. 194p.  $8.95  Unless you are a student of  Canadian and British Columbian  history or an octogenarian,  you probably aren't familiar with  the history of the Komogatu Maru  affair.  The Komogatu Maru was a  ship of Japanese registry char-  ered by an East Indian entrep-  eneur of questionable honesty  to transport 376 East Indians  who wanted to immigrate to  Canada. The ship arrived in  Vancouver harbor in late May  1914 and thus initiated a confrontation of major proportions  with the Immigration Department  At the time of the arrival  of the East Indians, the Canadian  government's position on non-  white immigration was clear  and well established. Sir Richard  McBride, Premier of British  Columbia, stated succintly that...  'to admit Orientals in large  numbers would mean in the  end the extinction of the white  people, and we always have in  mind the necessity of keeping this  a white man's country.' However  a B.C. Supreme Court Justice  had recently ruled that this excl-  usionist policy against East  Indians was illegal as every  citizen of India was a British .  subject and was therefore free to  go anywhere he wished in the  British Empire. The Komogatu  Maru passengers intended to  test the validity of this ruling.  The Komogatu Maru stayed in  Vancouver    harbor    until    late  July 1914 when it was forced  to embark for India. Those two  months were characterized by  bureaucratic incompetence,  violence, racial prejudice and  inter-passenger confrontations.  Problems were compounded  when those East Indian residents  of Vancouver who were avowed  Ghadrites (a secret Sikh society  espousing violence as a final  solution) became involved in  the conflict.  The author explores briefly  the fate of the protagonists  (both in British Columbia and  in India) following the departure  of the Komagatu Maru, which  places the incident in historical  perspective.  Ferguson concludes with a  chapter on "Vancouver's present  East Indian conflict in which he  attempts to draw parallels  between 1914 and 1974. His  conclusions are simplistic and  over-generalized; the contemporary situation is worthy of moire  extensive in-depth analysis than  he provides here.  The author has used many  unpublished primary sources,  such as letters and telegrams, as  well as voluminous secondary  sources in the preparation of his  book. It is an excellent examination of an incident in Canadian  and British Columbian history  from an historical perspective.  Ted Ferguson is a native of  British Columbia and is an  established playwright, journalist  and T.V. writer. A WMte Man's  Country is his first book.  Available at Books and Stationery, Sechelt.

Elphinatone  Chapter 65, are busy preparing  for the installation of a new corps  of officers' for the 1976-77 year,  after a busy year just completed.  Worthy Matron Mrs. Margaret  Hauka and her officers, with additional support from members of  the Chapter, have with their various projects, including a summer  tea, fall bazaar and catering for  Burns night, successfully met  their obligations for the year.  Other projects were raising funds  for cancer dressings locally and  provincially, scholarship donations, Save the Children Fund,  For all you gentlemen who  go to Meetings, how about  submitting all those Committee reports from a beautiful  all leather Briefcase from  Buxton, we have a very Rood  selection.

The toys  were made with loving care and  either crocheted, knitted or hand  sewn. From reports from the Children's ward at the Cancer Institute, the toys have been instur-  mental in bringing smiles to the  faces of young patients.  Not to be forgotten is the  small group of dedicated members who meet at the hall each  month to supply dressings made  by them for local patients as well  as those patients at the Cancer  Institute. These cancer dressings  are given free of charge and to',  date this year these workers have  given 265 hours, and have  donated 102 dozen dressings to  local cancer patients. If any of the  public have old cotton to donate  to be utilized in this work it  would   be   greatly   appreciated.  Accompanied by the Worthy  Matron, officers and members  have   visited   several   mainland  chapters as well as Powell River.  Friendships were renewed with  others who are also involved in  these    worthwhile     endeavours  The Powell River members made  a  social visit to the   Sunshine  Coast     Rebekahs     Lodge     in  Sechelt.  The Chapter was also honored  when Past Matron Mrs. Grace  Cufnming was presented with her  commission as Grand Representative to the State of Utah, in  recognition of her contribution to  the cause of Eastern Star and her  cheerful work in the community,  and thus complimenting every  member of the chapter with  whom she is associated/The last  meeting of this busy chapter was  made particularly pleasant by a  surprise visit from the Grand  Conductress of the Grand Jurisdiction, of British Columbia and  Yukon, Mrs. Edna Fetterly and  her conductress from Douglas  Chapter, Naniamo, Mrs. Ivy  'Whitworth.  The members of this organ  ization are very much aware that  without the support of the residents of the Sechelt Peninsula and  the contributions to their fund  raising projects they would be  unable to fulfill their service  to others. By means of this news  paper the members wish to  express their grateful apprecia-  ion arid look forward to their  support in the future in assisting  them to further the cause they so  deeply believe in ��� 'service to  others'.

It is a proven fact that we have  dreams at night even if we don't  remember them. Then there are  our day-dreams. Sometimes  thay can be what keep us going  when everything else is going  wrong.  A child's world is filled with  dreams. When I was little I  wished that when I fell asleep I  would dream like Alice in Alice  In Wonderland. How dreary  childhood would be without  dreams.  In Psycho-Cybernetics, a book  on self-image. Maxwell Maltz  advocates using your imagination to envision vividly any situation that you desire. That's  daydreaming.  Dreaming is the stuff that all  great inventions and innovations are made of. Someone has  to have a dream first. Some of  our greatest inventors,. Alexander Graham Bell for one,  used to sleep on a problem and  awaken with its solution.  If it weren't for dreams some  of our most beautiful poetry and  greatest prose would never have  evolved. The imagery that these  wonderful words create for us is  enlarged upon by our own  dreams.  Music is another area where  dreaming has significance.  Thousands of songs have been  written glorifying dreams. California Dreaming, Dream a Little  Dream of Me, I'll See You in my  Dreams, and To Dream the Im  possible Dream, just to name a  few.  Remember when you used to  sit or lie next to the radio and  picture all the people and places  that you were hearing come ou.t  of that little box. Radio was a  fun source for dreams.  In psychology and psychiatry  dreams have become an important part of analysis. Freud and  other founders of modern psychiatry saw what people dream  as significant to their mental  state.  Psychics believe dreams are  important. What you dream can  be representative of many  things. A dream can be pre-  cognative, tell something about  the future, or be a communication from   someone, who   has  passed on.  The- Bible is filled with  dreams. David interpreted the  King's dreams. Jacob had  dreams. Throughout the Old  and New Testaments we hear of  a multitude of dreams.  Where would we be without  dreams? I expect everyone has  had some great dream in life.  It would be quite drab if we had  to give up daydreams, and  scientists tell us that if we  didn't dream at night we would  become mentally ill, because  dreaming is a form of mental release.' .������*  No matter what our dreams  are we must have them. So as  the song says, ' 'Dream, that's  the thing to do v .,. Things  never arenas bad as they seem,  so dream, dream, dream."  Metrics got you in a stew?  "The time has come," the walrus said "to talk of many  things ..." Today the topic is  metric. Let's take a quick look at  the metric recipe for "Beef Stew"  How many new measures do you  see? If you guessed three, you're  right! Let's tackle them, one at a  time.  t You may wonder whether you  have to buy a kitchen scale to  weigh 700 grams beef. No, that  isn't necessary. You'll soon be  able to buy beef by the gram or  kilogram in the store. Items over  1000grams, such as large roasts,  will likely be referred to in kilograms. Since a kilogram is equal  to 1000 grams and is slightly more  than 2 pounds, then 700 grams  would be about 1 lA pounds.  If you've already purchased a  ' set of metric measures for volume, you'll have no problems  measuring millilitres. The 250  ml liquid measure is slightly  larger than the 8 ounce cup. In  the set of dry measuring cups,  there should be three cups label  led 50, 125 and 250 ml. All metric  recipes will be based on combinations of these three measures.  The teaspoon and tablespoon will  be replaced by five metric small  measures, 1 ml., 2 ml., 5 ml., 15  ml. arid 25 ml. These have been  specially designed to fit in with  the new 250 ml measure.  A metric ruler will easily indicate the length of 2 centimetres  for your beef cubes. If you don!t  have a ruler handy, just remember that the cantimetre is slightly  less than half an inch.  Now that wasn't difficult, was  it? You'll soon find that metric  recipes are easy to follow and  every bit as tasty as their traditional counterparts.

Council noted at last Wednesday's meeting that Hayden  Killam, owner of a building on  Dolphin Street, is contravening  the building code by accomodating two businesses in the  second storey of the two storey  building.  According to council, the  original plan presented for  approval indicated that the  second storey of the structure  would be used only for storage.  It was approved by the building  inspector and the fire marshall on  that basis.

In order to legally facilitate the  upstairs businesses, Killam  would have to undertake several  renovations.

We joined North Shore Bowl  in the House Round of the  Master-Junior-Senior Tournament last Sunday. ,This tournament involves teams made up of a  Master Bowler, two Y.B.C.  Juniors and two Y.B.C. Seniors.  ; The team of Michele Solinsky  and Geoff Spence as Juniors,  Collen Bennett and Jeff Mul  caster as Seniors and Dianne  Fitchell as Master won the event  bowling 609 pins over their  team average. The team of  Dawne Atlee and Grant Gill as  Juniors and Anne Carson and  David Atlee as Seniors and yours  truly as Master came in second  bowling 504 pins over our team  average.  The winning team now proceeds to the zone finals representing Gibsons-North Shore.  As a Master Bowler Instructor I  never stress, especially to the  young bowlers, that winning by  any means is the prime purpose  of the sport of bowling.

Work parties have slowed down a  little since the weather has  warmed up.  On March 14 Elphinstone Wanderers soccer club hosted Vancouver's East End Baceda Rats in the  _st home game of the season.  !The Rats currently hold first  place and a narrow 2-1 victory  /or Elphinstone places the local  "team in a good position for the  league championship.  The weather was ideal and the  game was played on Elphin-  stone's new field. From the open- -  ing kickoff Gibsons pressed to  the attack forcing the play in the  Rats' end. Both teams were ex-  ���tremely wary of each other's explosive power forcing the game  into a tight checking, close contest.  Gibsons scored first as they  caught the Rats sleeping on a  throw-in. Ken Bland tossed a  long throw-in into the goalkeepers box and as the Rats stood  around watching the ball, Steve  Miles raced in and tapped the ball  into the net.  The Rats were spurred into action by this goal and though they  didn't carry all the play, they  scored the equalizer at the 30-  . minute mark. The ball became  ent���lgled in the foot of a Gibsons  defender and when it popped out  the Rats' centre forward drove  the ball past the surprised Gibsons goalie.  In the second half, the Wanderers' superior conditioning began  to wear the Rats down. Gibsons  controlled most of the play missing many good scoring chances.s  When the Rats did break out,  however, they, were extremely  dangerous and at the 75 minute  mark forced goalie Jan de Reus  to make a spectacular save.  With less than three minutes to  play, Gibsons had a throw-in deep  in Rats' territory.  Steve Miles  tossed the long ball over the Rat  defenders and Frank Hoehne  raced in to head the first bounce  past the goalie into the net. The  game ended Gibsons 2, Rats 1.  The game was not the best the  Wanderers have played, due perhaps to nervousness before the  home crowd. The Rats did not  play their super fast, hustling  game either. Good efforts were  turned in by Mike Musgrove,  Kerry Eldred, Ken Verhulst,  Frank Hoehne and Dan MacKay.  Gibsons next game is on March  21, 12:30 p.m. at Central Park  in Burnaby. The Wanderers next  home game is' in Gibsons March  28,12 noon at Elphinstone school.  The .

Jeffrey was a member of the Gibsons boys volley-  bail team that participated in the 5th annual Gibsons Volleyball tournament March 12 and 13 at the Elementary  school. The boys were actually too young for the tournament but acted as a replacement for the Langdale boys  team which came down with the flu.

Wakefield goals in Thursday's -  game were scored by Jim Gray,  with two, and Dale Benner, Rick  McCartie, and Lawrence Jones  with one each. Roberts Creek  goals were scored by Mike  Sutherland, Roy McBrien, and  Bob Blake.  Wakefield's Dave Lamb picked  up four assists in that game and it  was reported he had his best  game of the season.  The finals, which start at the  arena April 3, will go to five  games if necessary.  SAVED BY THE NET is what Wakefield goaltender  Sammy Casey is probably saying to himself after a Roberts Creek goal missed the net. The puck did not end up in  the net because the net moved.

March 23.1976. 11  Peter Skene Ogden ���  Frontier diplomat  Though the Hudson's Bay  Company is usually considered to  be the main factor in the opening  up of the Pacific fur trade, it was  neither the first, nor for a long  time the strongest trading company to inhabit the North American shore.  The Russian American Company had been created in 1799 by  an imperial charter and by 1802  the Russians had become firmly  established at their main American post, Sitkam Alaska. During  the two decades after the establishment of Sitka the Russian  traders slowly began to move  southwards down the Pacific  coast. By 1825 it became necessary for the British and Russian  governments  to  designate   the  size of their territories and in a  convention signed later that year  the British ceded all territory in  what is now called the "Alaska  Panhandle" to the Russians.  The Convention of 1825 was  considered to be a great triumph  for British diplomacy, they had  negated the Russian claims to all  lands to the 51st parallel and had  contained the Russian American  Company's activities to at narrow  belt extending from 54/40 to the  141st longitude along a line that  was never more than 30 miles  from salt water. Moreover Britain  had maintained the right to navigate the rivers that flowed  through this area from the ocean  to the British territories inland. .  The convention had finally halted  the southward advance of the  Russians which only a few years  before had called for the building of a string of forts from Alaska  to San Francisco Bay.  The Russians however soon  showed that they were unwilling  to live by the agreement they had  made.  The "Convention of 1825" may  have been the death warrant for  the Russian American Company  but for it's competitor, the Hudson's Bay Company, it was the  beginning of a period of rapid  expansion. Since their merger  with the North West Company in  1821 the lack of competition had  enabled the H.B.C. to enjoy a  period of unprecedented prosperity. By 1834 the Company's posts  Would you believe homes this  beautiful could be factory built?  Believe it.  ^Nf>  *4����+,-  .** ;3r  -*  They are.

Box 167 Gibsons, B.C.  886-2642  extended from the Yukon to California and later that year additional forts were added in Idaho  and a new trading establishment  was opened in Honolulu. The  third fort planned for this year  was to be a new north.coast fort  on the Stikine River in British  territory behind the Russian Panhandle.  The inevitable had happened,  the two great trading powers had  finally run out of room and could  no longer ignore each other.  The Governors. of the Hudson's Bay Company, realizing  that there might be, difficulties  with the Russian American Company picked one of the company's  most experienced traders, "the  humorous, honest, eccentric, law  defying Peter Skene Ogden", as  the leader of the new expedition.  Peter Skene Ogden was born in  Quebec City in 1790. His father,  came to Canada as an Admiralty  Court Judge and shortly after  Peter was born he was promoted  to Montreal. It was in this bustling city that Peter Ogden was  raised.  During the early 1800s the  North West Company was at its  peak, using Montreal as its base  of operations they slowly moved  further and further west. Peter  Ogden watched the N.W.C. men  longingly, but initially he followed his family's encouragement to seek a career in law. Eventually he gave in to his desires  and worked for a while as a clerk  for the American Fur Company  before finally enlisting in the  North West Company and leaving  Montreal late in 1810.  Ogden's first wintering post  was at lie a la Grose in Saskatchewan where he joined up with  Samuel;Black, a rugged N.W.C.  adventurer who was later the first  white man to explore the Omineca  and Cassiar regions of British  Columbia. The partnership of Ogden and Black soon became the  terror of the rival H.B.C. forts in  PETER SKENE OGDEN shortly before his death.  J   COZY CORNER CAMERAS \  CAMERA  AND  DARKRM.  ^SUPPLIES;  886-7822  Beside the Bus Stop in Lower Gibsons  central Canada during the intercompany feuds that continued until the two companies merged in  1821.  Soon after the surprise.merger  of the two rivals Ogden discovered that he and Black had been  excluded from the coalition because of their earlier fierce opposition to the H.B.C. Ogden took  his case to London in 1822 and  the Governors fearing that Ogden  and Black would start a rival company, finally relented and admitted them to the company. His  first posting was to the Columbia River in "Oregon Territory."  Shortly after his arrival at Spokane House, Ogden was given the  task of leading the annual Snake  Valley Expeditions through much  of what is now Washington, Oregon and Idaho. In 1825 the Com-  " pany Governors finally admitted  that they had no chance of holding on to the vast territory south  of the Columbia River and Ogden's Snake River Expedition was  given the job of turning Oregon .  into a "fur desert". Over the next  three seasons Ogden ruthlessly  strove to achieve this goal and by'  1828 mainly due to this tactic the  H.B.C. had largely/stopped the  encroachment of the American  fur traders into the area. Had  they been half as successful at  stopping the later waves of American settlers, Washington, Oregon and Idaho would probably  have remained part of British  North America.  Ogden had now been accepted  as one of the H.B.C.'s most valuable assets and when the Company decided to turn its attention  towards further expansion along  the North Coast it was Ogden who  was chosen to establish the fort  on the Stikine River. The Russians soon learned of the British  plans and when Ogden sailed  north in the "Dryad" in 1834 he  soon discovered that the Russians  had no intention of honoring the'  "Convention of 1825."  The trouble began shortly after  the expedition left Fort Simpson  near the Alaska border. As the  Dryad approached the mouth of  the Stikine, a small boat left the  shore and came out to intercept  the expedition. The young Russian officer that commanded the  party presented Ogden with a  decree recently issued by the  Russian-American Governor Bar-:  on von Wrangel that prohibited  foreign ships from trading in  Russian waters. Ogden refused  to turn back and later another  Russian officer appeared at the  Dryad to inform Ogden that his  ship the Chichagoff was under orders to prevent the expedition  ����� "-.il!.  SITKA, ALASKA, headquarters of the Russian American  Fur Company. Peter Skene Ogden visited Sitka in 1832  and 1834.  from entering the mouth of the  Stikine. Ogden sent a party  ashore to the recently constructed Foirt Dionysius but further negotiations proved useless, and  when further orders were received from Sitka, Ogden was asked  to leave Stikine Sound as soon as  possible.       .,7        . '������''"  Ogden finally backed down but  when he was later cutting timber  for Fort Simpson along Portland  Canal he was again attacked by a.  Russian party and this time he  decided to .go to Sitka to lodge  a formal protest. His discussions  with Baron von Wrangel proved  fruitless and by December 1834  Ogden was back at Fort Vancouver on the Columbia.  The Hudson's Bay Company  immediately began to seek damages from the Russian company  for the Dryad incident. The talks  finally culminated in the signing  of the "Pact of 1839"' which gave  the H.B.C. a ten year lease on the  Russian Panhandle and put the  American traders out of business  by guaranteeing the H.B.C. the  sole right to trade with the Russian colony. Ogden's decisions on  the Stikine had given the H.B.C.  an amazing trading advantage  over her American competitors.  In 1835 Ogden was again  moved, this time he became the  Chief Factor of New Caledonia,  the vast northern H.B.C. territory. Ogden governed the affairs  of the area for nine years before  returning to England for a short  vacation and to advocate a strong-  . er British position in the rapidly  developing Oregon Territory.  Ogden was heartbroken when he  received the news shortly after  returning to Fori Vancouver that  Britain had  ceded  all territory  i south of the 49th parallel to the  United States. It must have  seemed strange to the H.B.C.  men to see the American flag  hoisted over Fort Vancouver. Ogden later wrote to the H.B.C.  governors that "All is ended in  giving the Americans all they  possibly wished for or required  ... Truly may we say put not your  trust    in     Prime     Ministers."  Ogden was left to continue the  Company business in the now  American territory until his death  eight years later in 1854.  Peter Skene Ogden, the "Frontier Diplomat" had seen the Pacific develop.from a fur trading  wilderness to a settled territory  on the verge of a rapid expansion  and though his incredible energy  and loyalty he had helped to  preserve B.C.'s borders from further encroachment by both the  Russians and the Americans.  Though Peter Skene Ogden's life  was not as critically important to  B.C. as many other H.B.C. men,  he is representative of a breed of  tough, honest, adventurous men  who opened up much of the coast  of North America.

For the first time this  week I really found out how many  people read this column. The  thing is, they take me seriously.  I don't even take myself seriously.  It all started last week when I  said there could be a riot at school  .during the homecoming weekend  and people seriously believed that  we were going to lock the RCMP  in the gym while they were playing broomball and burn our student cards. If anybody believed  that they must be as crazy as I  am. I would have packed the  whole lot in and resigned myself  to a life of shame had it not been  for my fan letters. I received no  less than two of them this week,  and my thanks go to " F'/j".  In answer to enquiries, the intruder in the courtyard got there  by jumping off the lower roof  of the science wing.  But about this week, it wasn't  an easy one. People wouldn't say  hello and friends laughed. It's not  easy to be  a  writer especially  when ypumeet with the superintendent of the school district.  "Nice article you wrote in the  paper, D. J., "said our Student  Council president, Susan Dixon,  as I took my chair. Several more  comments of this sort made me  realize that I wasn't a sure winner  in the popularity polls. I was almost afraid to take notes at the  meeting. Superintendent Mr.  Deniey was most amiable and  agreed that drinking and smoking  should be restricted but was also  quite honest in saying that it  couldn't be guaranteed.  "If nothing else it will make  them think more carefully about  using the gym," he said.  Let me explain all about gyms.  Gyms are a focal point of a school.  They are danced in, played in,  worked in and broken in. Depriving a student body of its gym is  like depriving a nicotine addict  a pack of cigarettes. Without a  good gym a school in nothing.  But gymnasiums are expensive  and the public is not willing to  give money to the schools for  gyms. To sell people on the idea  of a gym, the school board makes  sure the community is allowed to .  use the facility for community activities.  This is all fine and well but  when the community does try and  use the gym everyone at the  school rankles on about "double standards" and then they proceed to write angry protests. The  problem is that two different sets *  of rules governing the gym are  made by two different groups of  people ��� the school board and  the school administration. The  solution is to get one set of rules  fpr everyone. (Oh no, I've ruined  this week for sure.) We, the students, really do believe in community use of the school.  Anyway it was Homecoming  weekend last Friday and Saturday's real news item. The carnival, the games, the dance, the  gaiety. But guess who had to  work this weekend? My co-worker  at the Co-op, Leslie Setchfield,  came down with the flu and was  too ill to work and I was unable  by D.J. HAUKA  to attend.  Other things happened this  week at the school, though less  important. The Chess club had a  big tournament to determine the  top three players. Winners will  later participate at a large tourney  in Vancouver. It was a double  knock-out, meaning a player has  to lose two games in a row to be  out of it. As vice-president of the  club I felt it my painful duty to  lose both games, consecutively.  (Or is it executively?)  There was also a hot dog sale.  Not your average run of the mill  sale, as hot dog sales come and  go. But how often do you see a  biology-class having one? I didn't  quite dare ask what the money  was for, fearing it might be for  purchasing cadavers. It was the  idea of Mr. Brush, our biology  student-teacher, who is doing  some strange things. But then,  this school is noted for doing  strange things.  There was also a badminton  tournament this week, that is not  to say badminton is a strange  thing, it's rather a good sport, but  1 never could get into it after splitting my tennis shorts end to end  . while playing a game.  On the subject of games, Mike  McNevin and I took full advantage of our Social Studies department's stock of the aforementioned this week. After several  games of "The War of 1812" and  "Quebec 1759" Mike resigned  from gaming, but he did beat me  at tennis.  Speaking of our Socials department, our Social Studies teacher,  Mr. Pope, may go to Sechelt next  year. He won't be able to teach  Grade 11 Socials (his favorite) as  Sechelt is a Junior school. We  hope you stay at Elphinstone, Mr.  Pope.  I guess that's about all for this  week. I'd close this column right  now except I don't really know  how to. Do you realize the problem every week ending a column  nicely and neatly? It's terrible.  I think I'll stop right here.  aooooooaao  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.)  Gladys Elson - 886-7359  S.C.
