 r  Provincial Library9  Victoria, B. C.  BEACHCOMBER  UfvD  Alderman.Stuart K. Metcalfe with othetB.CwMayora ajr^AJdennenJuivt  coirfiejsnce.at. the. ra in Disasters held in  Amprior, Ontario. Story cm this page. \  Joint-funding tabled  . The regular meeting of the Regional Board was held in the Regional Board offices on Thursday,  September 30th, 1976. The Board  heard a report from those representatives, who had been pie-  sent at the joint-funding meeting  with the School Board the night  before.  The motion to join the School  Board in the joint-funding arrangement was tabled. Regional  Board Director Hoemberg, who  made the tabling motion explained to the Coast News that the  Regional Board was proceeding  with all possible dispatch on the  matter due to .the element of  urgency introduced to the situation by the need to replace Pender  Harbour School, incorporating  perhaps some aspects ofthe joint-  fiihding concept.  He explained however, that the  Board would have to wait to move  on the concept until the representatives of the Village Councils had had the opportunity to report back to their councils.  Alderman Jim Metzler informed the Coast News that he  intends to recommend the program to Gibsons Village Council  at the next regular meeting.'  Disasters  Stuart K. Metcalfe, Alderman, represented Gibsons at a  recent four-day conference on civil emergency planning at the  Federal Study Centre at Arnprior, Ontario. The problems and  responsibilities in planning for local government response to  disasters was held September 20 - 23,1976, under the auspices  of Emergency Planning Canada. 7  Following descriptive presentations and analyses of disaster  threats with which elected officials of all levels of government  might be faced, conference studies were largely devoted to problems of pre-emergency planning, immediate disaster response,  and recovery actions by local or municipal leaders. By means of  lectures, demonstrations and discussion groups tiie civic officials  dealt with unusual responsibilities which they and their administrations would-have to bear to co-ordinate and deal effectively  with disasters ranging from* floods, hurricanes, snow storms,  earthquakes, to nuclear attack.  .

Campaign  continues  Local man, Fred Inglis, is continuing with his campaign against  the re-structuring ofthe old Inglis  residence on the Highway at the  . head of the wharf. Besides his  attempts to rally local support  against the re-structuring, he has  written to Ed Broadbent and Dave  Barret of the N.D.P. pointing out  the house's relationship with tiie  founder ofthe Democratic Socialist movement in Canada, J. S.  Woodsworth.  Inglis has also contacted the  Provincial Archivist in Victoria.  Federally he has contacted Heritage Canada, the National Historic Sites and Federal Member of  Parliament Jack Pearsall. Pictured here is long time Federal  Member of Parliament for Vancouver East, Grace Mclnnis,  daughter of the Founder of the  C.C.F. Ms. Mclnnis is also understood to express her support for  the retention of the house which  sheltered herself and her mother  and brothers and sister, during  the First World War.  In another development in the  pub debate the Coast News  learned last week that.a further  possible stumbling block might  lie ahead* for MTR Holdings in  their bid to open the first village  pub in the lower village area. In  a telephone interview with Liquor  Administration Inspector Whiffin  it was learned that by statute the  proposed pub must be at least one  mile from an . existing facility.  The proposed pub would be just  over a mile from the Golden  Barrel opposite the shopping  plaza if the distance were measured by the Highway. By School  Road Hill however, the distance  between the two establishments  would only be eight or nine tenths  of a mile.  It was Whiffin's opinion that  this latter distance would be the  one used since School Road Hill  is a gazetted road. A spokesman  for MTR Holdings said that they  were aware of the difficulty and  felt a solution could be found.  ITIV  A joint meeting of the School Board and the Regional Board was  held on Wednesday, September 29th, at the Elementary School in  Sechelt to discuss the feasibility of joint funding of recreational facilities throughout the district. Also represented at the. meeting was the  Sechelt Village Council. Gibsons Village Council was not represented.  The meeting was under the chairmanship of School Board Chairman  Celia Fisher.  The rebuilding of Pender Harbour School lent some urgency to the  deliberations ofthe evening. Parks and Recreation Commission Chairman, Norm Watson, and Regional Director Jack Paterson of Area 'A'  acted as spokesmen for Pender Harbour interests.  It was specified that Pender  Harbour would like the gym built  in the replacement school in such  a way that it would be available  for public use including access to  the gym other than via the teaching area. Access to the washrooms should be made possible  from outside the building so that  they can be conveniently available when games are taking  place. Other specified desirables  in the new school would be a  kitchen suitable for community  banquets, the design of the hall  should make it suitable for the  staging of plays and. musical  evenings complete with adequate  wiring for stage lighting and  decent accoustics. "What we  want", said Paterson, "is something that will be an adequate recreational facility as well as a gymnasium. Pender Harbour win  support this concept."  Regional Board Director Peter  Hoemberg said that if the Regional District gets involved in  such a funding it would have to  go to referendum.    Hoemberg  said that a central issue in such a  case would be whether such a  ; referendum shouldbe regwhal,  that is in this case specifically  applicable to Pender Harbour, or  should it be a general program  affecting the entire Regional and  School District.    It was Hoem-  berg's suggestion that perhaps  the function of Education and  Recreation should be split with a  Recreation   Director   hired   to  match Adult Education  Supervisor  Karin  Hoemberg.      The  financing    for    the    recreation  aspect of the program could be  undertaken by tiie Regional  Board and the School Board  would continue to be responsible  for the financing ofthe Education  aspects.* 0  School Board member Klaus  Spiekemann said that the suggested joint funding was approaching the Community School  concept which was already in  practice in several school districts in the province. In such a  concept a Community School  Council was elected and was responsible for direction of the  school even to the curriculum  studied in the area.  School Board Chairman Celia  Fisher said that School District  #46 had already initiated something of this kind with the Bowen  Island School and Pender Harbour could join Bowen Island as  the forerunners of the joint,  funding concept.  Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills  of School District #46 said it was  reasonable to expect that the Department of Education wfll replace the burnt school as it was  though, hopefully, it could be  made more usable., "We wfll end  up witii "a school"^wHich" will "be  as big and undoubtedly better",  said Mills. "But we are building  gymnasia, not auditoria",' he  said. "If an area wants more than  tiie Department of Education is  willing to pay, it must expect to .  assume some of thefinancing".  Spiekemann pointed out that  the aim of the community school  concept is to avoid repeating capital cost projects. "The concept is  designed to make the community  dollar get the most for the com  munity needs".  Superintendent Denley observed that it had been found  that when the Schools became  Community facilities in an active  sense, vandalism was greatly  lessened. The reasons were twofold: first the community had  more of a vested interest in the  facility; second the increased use  meant there were more lights and  more action and vandalism  tended to decrease in these circumstances.  It was pointed out that the Regional Board is entitled to join  with the School Board to get best  value for the community's tax  dollars. Chairperson Fisher said  the School Board is committed  to this project.  There was some talk of the  needs of Roberts Creek Community Hall which must be replaced in the near future and the  projected location of its replacement in District Lot 1506 but  Regional Board member Hoemberg urged that the meeting confine itself to a discussion of a  general principle, noting that  there would undoubtedly be time  in future for the discussion of  the needs of individual areas and  how the principle of joint funding  could be applied in each case.  It was Hoemberg's conviction  that there would be no difficulty  in passing the referendum be-'  cause voters would be reassured  that their communities would  benefit because schools exist in  all the areas and the linking with  the School Board would guarantee that the benefits of the pro-  "gralrii would "be"equitable" distributed.  Area 'A' member Paterson expressed his pleasure at the  positive nature of the meeting  and said that such an approach  would go a long way to dispel  the parochialism which had bedevilled the Sunshine Coast for  so long. Both he and Hoemberg  expressed themselves as being  willing to make the motion required at the meeting of the regional board the following night.  Shots fired at police car  �����* ��r?**u!* �����  Some secrecy seems to surround a wild incident which took place at the Gibsons garbage  dump last Monday, September 27th. As far as can be determined local R.C.M.P. were called  to the dump about 3:15 a.m. on Monday morning in response to a complaint about shots being  fired, presumably at bears. When the police car arriwd at the dump the unknown gunman  fired on the police car and is believed to have creased the roof and the fender of the car with  one bullet lodging in the grille of the police vehicle.  It is believed that the police returned the fire using shotguns, a great pile of shotgun shells  was found and photgraphed at the dump. It is not known whether all of these were fired by  police.  What is known is that a police helicopter arrived here from Vancouver at 7:15 a.m. to help  in the search for the gunman. Police dogs were used to look for him but as far as is known at  this time, he was not apprehended. Later in the day plainclothes policemen from the city  searched the dump with metal detectors. The R.C.M.P. finally cleared the dump at 4:00 p.m.  The dump has been included in regular police patrols lately because of residents' complaints  about the terrific amount of shooting which has taken place there. Several bears have been shot  in recent weeks. More information is still being sought.  ered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday  \ Gbast News, October 5,1976  Gibsons,  Phone 886-2622  Published at Gibsons, B.C., every Tuesday  bv Sunshine Coast News.

It is impossible to disagree with Fred  Inglis when he speaks of the role the  house that is called Stonehurst played in  the early days of this village. For forty-  five years it housed the only medical facility available from Port Mellon to Halfmoon Bay. From it on horse-back, bicycle, and finally motor bike old Dr.  Fred Inglis, this one's grandfather, set  out with his black bag to answer calls of  distress in all the seasons of the year.  From that same house Dr. Hugh Inglis  did the same. It is remembered affectionately, too, by old-timers as the only  place you could get a shower in the early  days. The lives of every man, woman and  child in the pioneer village was affected  by the house and the humanists that  inhabited it.  It is true, too, that the house claim to  fame rests on more than the place it must  hold in the hearts of the early residents  of this place. In it were housed the six  children and the wifeof J. S. Woodsworth  during the First World War when that  frail and gallant, saintly man went off to  be a longshoreman when his pacifist  views brought him into difficulties with  the church he served. One can imagine  the late night discussions which the  house must have hosted between old Doc  Inglis, Jake Hensa, and J.S. Woodsworth -  as they sought the means whereby this  troubled world could be rendered a more  decent place and from which seeds  sprang the Democratic Socialist movement in its Canadian manifestation.  When Fred Inglis says this house is a  Historic artifact which must be preserved  he is absolutely right. He is right to be  outraged when it is refferedtoin the local  press as the "old taxi office". If we do  not pay tribute to what is worthy in our  past it will be lost and world is not yet  so full of worthiness that we can afford to  lose sight of any of it. The vexatious  question remains, however. How can  this particular house of high worth best  be preserved and even cherished?  The present....  Three young men have come forward'  with a plan. Michael Nutland, Terry  Karkabe, and Richard Parker, forming a  company which calls itself MTR Holdings, have a plan fdr the house that was  called Stonehurst. They see it as an ideal  site for a Neighbourhood Pub. Fred  Inglis has no personal objections to the  house as a pub but MTR wants to restructure it to increase the possible  seating capacity and ��� as Shakespeare  said ��there's the rub. The maximum for  a Neighbourhood Pub is 1200 square  feet, twelve per customer and a maximum of one hundred. MTR says that is  what they need for it to be a viable economic proposition.- As the house now  stands the maximum number of people  who could use it is in the neighbourhood  of forty. Inglis* opposition is premised  against the physical re-structuring of  the house.  It seems to the Coast News that the  weakness of his position lies in the lateness of manifesting itself and in its lack  of a viable alternative to the pub idea.  The constructor gives the house a possible life of four more years without reconstruction and there is no guarantee  that it would have been done, or would be  done, by anyone other than MTR Holdings.  The fact must be faced that nothing in  the world could have prevented MTR  Holdings from having the house demolished the day after _ they bought it  and there would have been no recourse  open to Fred Inglis except regret. The  fact that they did not was because they  liked the house and wanted topreserve it.  The constructor and the architect hired by  MTR Holdings are both emphatic in  their tributes to the concern shown by the  company for the integrity and atmosphere of the original building. Their restructuring promises the old house  another vital seventy years of active life  at least. Nothing better has been  suggested.  And the pub....  What do we know about the young men  who are promoting this pub? They  bought the Dogwood Cafe a year and a  half ago. Working in a very minimal  space there, they upgraded the appearance ofthe place with taste and flair.  They are competent and affable businessmen with energy and ideas which they  propose to devote to Lower Gibsons and  we know, all of us, that the older part of  the village stands in need of rejuvenation.  The Coast News agrees that the house  that old Doc Inglis built in 1914 and out of  which he and his sons, Allan and Hugh,  brought medical aid to the pioneer people  of this place deserves the affection and  respect of the community. Those who  would change it propose to do so with respect. Their architect tells us that they  have gone to considerable design expense to maintain the character and the  period of the house. If Stonehurst becomes a pub its interior will be wains-  cotted, it will feature pictures and artifacts of the period, incorporating in fact  some ofthe qualities of a living museum.  While sympathising with the concern  of the Inglis family completely, it nonetheless must be said that it is hard to see  how the old house could be better served.  .from the files of Coast Moms  5YEARSAGO  Volunteer Fireman Allan Matheson  Eckford suffered a heart attack fighting  a Roberts Creek fire.

Peterson  When it comes to stopping  smoking no one has a more dismal record than myself. If you've  been secretly despising yourself  for your inability to give up the  . filthy habit, take some comfort 7  from the fact that there is one yet'  more despicable than yourself.  I confidently assert that on the  whole question of nicotine no man  in Canada is more frequently  and pathetically defeated, nor  is there a man who has so sacrificed his pride and whatever  trace of manly dignity he ever had  more thoroughly than myself.  And I promise not to mention  my cough which is definitely by  this time in the heavyweight  class,. on occasion a contender  among the great and horrific  coughs of all time.  Alright I can hear you out there  rasping cynically "Who does this  piker think he is?' after you get'  back to reading the paper after >  the coughing spell that followed  the first drag on your freshly lit  cigarette and your fingers are yellow from chain-smoking down to  the filter tips you cowered behind at the party or the pub the  night before and your mouth, in  Peter .Trower's fine phrase, feels  like the bottom of a birdcage yet  again. "What makes this guy  think he's so special?"  Well, I'll tell you. First let us  make clear at once and with firmness that my concern about this  matter is very real and very  serious. I won't dwell on any of  this but I watched my father go  down smoking to the end though  virtually every drag set him  coughing up coal dust from his  lungs ten years after he had been  out of the mines and he suffered  what we called chronic bronchitis, emphysema now I think.  My elder sister lost a lung to T.B.  twenty years ago and kept right  on chain smoking till she died of  cancer last winter. Here in  Gibsons I watched a cousin die  one lung at a time, smoking till  the end. It's a serious business.  In addition to all this I'm a bit  of a hypochondriac in any case  with a history of chest weakness  and - when I get going ��� a compulsive, maniacal chain smoker. I  mean, I've got motivation to  stop, believe me, yet I keep right  on smoking.  And listen I don't even do it  with any kind of swashbuckling  defiance. I am a devout and confirmed coward. I'm terrified most  of the time. Most smokers go  through the odd defeat when they  attempt to quit, maybe several  defeats, but I go through it every  week ��� the nerving oneself up,  the fateful last cigarette, the  wrestling with temptation, the  eventual succumbing, the shame  and the endless reationalizations.  Every week.    Every week I'm  musings from burnside      Commentary  serious about it within myself but'  it's been years, of course, since  anyone else took me seriously.  In addition to all this constant,  spineless grovelling before the  filthy leaf, I have something else  to confess and this won't be news  to anyone who knows me. I  beg cigarettes. You see, what  happened ~ please believe me -  was that I found out years ago  that when I bought a pack of  cigarettes I immediately smoked  them all. A friend this morning  with kindly firmness took some  money from my change and pointedly bought me a pack of cigarettes. That was ,at ten o'clock.  By half past noon they were  smoked. I thought that if I had to  beg them it would slow me down.  Perhaps it does but over the years  I've become an adept, as shamelessly, wheedlingly skilful as an  Arabian beggar. I mean a lady I  had known in Dawson City in  1965-I'd taught her daughter in  Grade Eleven there-came to visit  me in 1973 here in Gibsons. I  met the bus and tiie first words  she spoke after eight years  were, "It's alright Burnside, I've  brought extra cigarettes.''  I've been treated with friendly  contempt by hundreds of fine  people and been scowled at in  bars by menacing strangers as I  helped myself to their packet on  the table for the fourth time in  half an hour.  When they ask me  why I don't buy some of my own,  I say that I don't like to 'cause I  smoke too much then���and the  scowl deepens. I can turn on a  rueful, furtive charm at a  moment's notice, survive the  menace and the jibes, and wind  up with another cigarette-and  get it lit for I never have any  matches either. One of these  days I'm going to be shot by a  rightfully outraged nicotine ad-1  diet as I smoke his last, and of  course the courts will acquit him  and they will be right to do so.  I am truly contemptible in this  matter. Years ago, about five,  an old friend ���- we had gone to  high school together and before  that to the Boy Scouts in South  Ayrshire in 1949 �� after years of  fond indulgence cut me off gruffly  one night with the words, "John  Burnside was never a bum!"  I turned and got a cigarette from  the fellow next to him. Totally  incorrigible.  But despair, I am fond of  saying, is always premature.  Hope springs as eternally in my  breast as in anyone's. Despite  the years of nicotine madness,  despite the years of degradation  and defeat by the devil weed,  I wish to announce publicly that  starting at midnight on this first  day of October 1976, I'm going to  try again. And, folks, if Burnside  can make it, anybody can.

From the book 'Alders and Others'  In the wake of the recent B.C.  Pen riots it is again necessary to  look at the complex question of  prison conditions, the abolition  of capital punishment and the role  of the police in our society.  Last spring in the heat of the  abolition controversy one of the  main points that was raised time  and time again was the danger to  the police and prison guards that  resulted from the lack of a death  penalty as a deterrent to the  prisoners actions. Now, only a  few short months later we have  been thrust into a situation where  those lives are on the line and  those who originally argued the  retention viewpoint are sure to  take advantage of the circumstances to again raise their point  of view.  However, what must be remembered, is the simple fact  that those law enforcement officers and guards who are responsible for prison security are  being payed by us, the taxpayers, to ensure that this type of  situation is not allowed to arise.  When a riot does break-out and  the guards are held hostage, we  should bear in mind that had  these Civil Servants been doing  their jobs in a conscientious manner it would have been impossible  for the inmates to take out their  hostilities on the institution.  Though I am firmly opposed to  the death penalty, I do believe  that in a maximum security institution such as the B.C. Pen the  guards and the prison officials  must be allowed to use force,  when necessary, in order to maintain control. Any large group of  human beings, especially a crowd  such as is found inside the prison  walls, must always be handled  with care. Enmasse, prisoners  who would ordinarily reject a  chance for open violence can become dangerous entirely as a result of the violence projected by .  the situation. Violence breeds  violence and in no other place is  such a first rate growth medium  to be found. By locking up human  beings without consideration for  the degree of violence inherent in  their own personality we are allowing this type of situation to  develope. Psychological assistance is also at a minimum inside  our prisons and the amount of  energy put towards rehabilitation  is vastly outweighed by the  philosophy of keeping society safe  for 'X' number of years.    .  Until we truly begin to treat the  prisoners as human beings who  need our assistance, the violence  will continue not only within  the prison walls but outside as  well. Those human beings incarcerated behind tiie walls of  B.C. Pen are not "animals" or  "sub-human". In many cases  they are just normal humans  caught up in the emotional impact ofthe moment or people like  you and I who have not been allowed the chance to operate on  a normal day to day level.  This society has a bad habit of  stepping on those who are already  down. The victims are everywhere.  Pender Harbour  Perspective  Some good news and some bad  from the Harbour this week. Al  Bates found out and certainly  not for the first time that a good  woman is hard to replace. His  wife Evelyn is recovering in St.  Paul's Hospital from a slight  heart attack. Al meanwhile back  at home-base has been taking  apart his old chimney and in the  process of struggling with the  heavy rocks, strained his bade. In  the absence of the little woman,  Al tried to apply linament to his  own back with some unfortunate  results as the ligament got where  it shouldn't. Al reported that no  permanent damage had taken  place. When Evelyn gets back  from hospital she can be sure  she'll be even more appreciated  than before her illness.  Around 5:00 pm. the other  night a collection of fellows outside the Harbour Lodge gave indication of the' Installation of  Regional Board Director for the  area, Jack Paterson, in the chair  of the Lodge. In other Masonic-  related news, Mark Myers, Ernie  Widman, and Andy Aitchinson  and their good ladies went off  at 7:00 pm. Sunday morning on  a Royal Arch charter trip to Reno.  They set off in good fettle taking  a fair amount of B.C. Green down  to the desert.  Mrs. Griffiths of Egmont returned last week from a month's  vacation in Germany. She was  most enthused about the September weather in Europe and  quick to inquire, after the summer we have had, what the  weather had been like here. Jack  Paterson was pleased to inform  her that the grapes were ripening  here too.  Howie and Mary White of Harbour Publishing came back last  week from a week's vacation in  the Gulf Islands. Both enjoyed  it greatly, finding it a beautiful  place to be in the land of weather  we've been having. Of course,  when it comes to beauty Mary  and Howie would be the first to  agree that the Hatbour itself is  no slouch. A change is always  refreshing, however, even for  those of us who already live in  paradise.  Peter Precesky expressed himself as delighted after the School  Board-Regional Board meeting  last week. "Beautiful to hear",  said Peter about the co-operation  and lack of parochialism that was  evident from the remarks of most  ofthe speakers.

Letters to the Editor  SURPRISE  Editor:  NorahHill, 'Nonie' to her many  friends, received the following  letter of appreciation from longtime N.D.P. stalwart Grace  Mclnnis after None organized a  get-well card to her during her  recent illness.  DearNorah,  What a lovely surprise it was  to receive the 'get well' wishes of  the whole Sunshine Coast N.D.P.  together with their signatures and  individual comments. Do please  tell them of my great appreciation. I imagine I met most of  them at the big banquet you  staged at Gibsons during Harry  Olaussen's campaign. That was  a wonderful affair and I haye such  happy memories of it.  It's only three weeks since I  got home but I'm gradually improving so that even I notice it.  After two months in a wheelchair one has to learn to walk  all over again. Now that I'm  living in the same building as  Jennie Schooley, I know that I  can count on'a visit with you when  you come to town.  My kindest regards to Eileen,  Love,  Grace.  Mrs. Hill has been active in  the N.D.P. for many years locally  and in Vancouver.  OBJECTION  Dear Sir:  This morning I heard part of  a radio interview with Alice  Eaton, the Executive Director for  Browndale in B. C. Since I do  not subscribe to any of Van-  couvers' newspapers, I am not  informed of the particulars in the  current' furor, other than the  rather vague coverage in the  C.B.C. News and that interview.  I was reminded, forcefully, of  an experience over 20 years ago  in a small town just outside  Toronto. I was then a young girl  in care of an agency called  Warrendale, whose director was  John Brown. Although I never  actually read the newspaper reports, the talk overheard at home,  and especially, at school, gave me  a very clear idea of what lies were  being spread. I can still recall the  awful embarrassment as well as  the furious indignation.'  The striking similarity cf the  recent allegations to those I had  heard so long ago has prompted  this response. That first story  back in the 1950's was covered by  a reporter for one of Toronto's  finer expamples of what was  euphemistically referred to as the  'yellow'press'. That these recent  allegations are being given such  excellent coverage by our respectable media is another good  indication of the state of journalism today.  THANKS  Yours truly,  R.CLeipsic  Editor:  Dear Mrs. Olsen:     ,  PORPOISES  I wish to make public the  thanks and appreciation of myself  and the Medical Staff cf St.  Mary's Hospital for the donation,  to the Hospital of a Slit Lamp, a  machine that is very valuable for  the examination of the eyes, for  performing glaucoma tests.  This machine is standard  equipment in an eye physician's  office and it is a great help and  a great bonus to the hospital  equipment that St. Mary's Hospital has now. A very minute  examination of the eye and very  accurate pressure measurement  can be carried out, and we hope to  see it in use during the eye examinations I perform twice a month  in my visits to Sechelt.  This machine will also be in use  by the physicians in general at  St. Mary's Hospital in case of a  foreign body or bum and in this  fashion it will be assessed with  greater accuracy.  I am sure we wiU aU put to  great use this very expensive and  -specialized instrument that your  committee has seen fit to provide  us with and I am sure that this  will simply add on to the modern  equipment that is in use now at  St. Mary's Hospital. Onoe again,  thank you very much on fcehalfof  us all.  Yours sincerely,-  "Alex Porzecanski, M.D.F.R.C.S.  Consultant Ophthalmologist  St. Mary's Hospital, Sechelt  Powell River General Hospital,  'PoweU River.  Editor:  A local Pender Harbour fisherman rescued a dyingporpoise last  ���week and the touching story of  attempts to revive the  unfort-  nate creature who had come to  man for help in it's death throes  was on CBC radio as well as the  Vancouver papers. I'd like to use  this as an example of how mankind has become so capable of  paying alot of attention to a single  particular matter of morality  while blatant and 'purposeful  attrocities go unnoticed on a massive scale.  While Marine Biologists fought  to save the Pender Harbour  porpoise which had been presumably attacked by Killer  Whales, U.S. Tuna boats were  slaughtering tens of thousands  of the mammals in a new method  of obtaining Tuna for their  sandwiches. Where hooks used  to be used to pull Tuna from the  sea, Seiners are now used and  as the long nets are drawn in,  hundreds of porpoises are trapped along with the tuna. It so  happens that these mammals will  not leave a wounded or trapped  mate so even though the porpoises could jump over the cork  lines, they choose to stay back to  help the maimed and each set  brings in countless mutilated  porpoises.  'Ecologists in the States are  trying to fight this fishing method  and present laws state that a  Tuna boat must return to port  after killing 10,000 of these in-  tellegent animals...ten thousand  wasteful deaths! I don't believe  Canada fishes in this manner...  but definately do not buy U.S.  light chunk tuna.  A' similar: contradiction that  causes.me- to fear for the sanity  of "Man" is the bilfions of dollars  that have gone into the Mariner  flights to scratch up Martian soil  for some trace of mkso-organic  life. We travel to the planets  inseachof life.  I am not necessarily against  such scientific investigation (at  least the rockets held no warheads) but I find some insane yet  unavoidable juxtaposition with  news reports coming out of Brazil  stating that daily expeditions of  Army gun-boats travel deep into  the Amazon jungies to shell villages of pre-historic aborigines  who fight to maintain their last  little stronghold. These stone-  age people are estimated by anthropologists to be down to the  last 600...and beginning infanticide to destroy themselves before  "modern" man finishes them off.  We struggle to save a angle  porpoise, and purposefully destroy thousands. We scratch for  life on Mars, and destroy civilizations on Earth. "What fools  these mortals be."  KenDalgleish  RECIPROCITY  Dear Sir:  Enclosed is a copy of a letter  sent to the Pacific Press in Vancouver.  The remarks about "the state  of journalism today" are meant to  be general. I do not include a  community newspaper such as  yours which is responsible to the  people who support h. fiuluie  to acknowledge that reciprocity  is one of the sources of sensationalism, and I have not seen any  evidence of that in the Coast  News. Thank you.  Youtstruly,  R. C. Leipsic  HYSTERICS  Editor:  It seems that Mr. Fred Ingfs  is concerned as to the future of  a house which was constructed  in 1911 by his grandfather.

The lady who bodily  attacked a male controller for an  alleged slight on her spinster-  hood? A newspaper described  her as "a five foot Cassius Clay  in skirts''.

A profile of her life can be  heard on Between Ourselves on  Friday at 8:03 pm. prepared by  Kathleen Hunt and produced by  Ken Pagniez.

Untouched by all the negative-  ness that blights peoples personalities as they growolder.  I delight in children because  I can borrow or visit them. When  I'm tired I can return them to  their parents. I enjoy other  peoples kids without the problems.  My two darlings are teenagers,  not children or adults. They're  somewhere in the middle, suffering as all adolescence do. I  can remember back to my tear-  full, traumatic teens. I wouldn't  trade places with them for anything in the world.  The things that lids do and say  are a great source of humor.  Children are spontaneous, their  words and actions are pure innocence with no funniness intended. They don't worry about  what anyone is going to think or  say about them, everything just  flows from' their minds and  mouths.  I had my neighbor over the  other day with her two little  ones.

I mentioned this to Pam who said that  Kristie is fond of dry cat chow.  What else could I do, I offered the  child a dog biscuit which she ate  with relish, that's as in gusto not  pickle.  '   With all the junk food that they'  put in food today animal food is  probably, better for you anyway.  The kid looks as healthy as a  horse.  Listen to this true story that  was told to me by a friend; Little  Billy was in the hospital to have  his tonsils removed. It was his  first time away from home, and  he was totally unfamiliar with his  surroundings. Over the intercom  on the wall in his room the nurse  asked, "Billy are you hungry?  Would you like a glass of juice  and some cookies?"  A few minutes later the nurse  appeared in Billy's room. Billy  was sitting upright in bed staring'  at the wall with eyes as big as  saucers. The nurse heard him  saying, "Wall was that you? Did  you talk to me wall?" Ihe poor  kid was scared but of his whs.  When my children were little,  about five and six, I went into  their room to kiss them good  night and found my daughter  crying. She was worried about  dying. I did my best to comfort  her by telling her that she didn't  have to worry about that problem  for a long time. Then my son  looked down from the upper bunk  where he slept and said, "Don't  worry when you die you just go to  heaven and get your angel  costume". How could anyone  worry when it was all so simple.  Another time my son said,  "Gee I haven't seen a Bugs  Bunny cartoon for along time."  I replied, "Didn't you hear,  Bugs Bunny died.''  TED HUME  He said in a sad tragic voice,  "Oh no."  Of course he realized that I  was pulling his leg when I started  laughing, and denied being taken  in by my remark.  An experience that I will never  forget happened when I was in  first grade. My girlfriend and I  were playing on the telephone.  We would take turns dialing numbers and seeing if we would get  someone on the other end. This  particular time I dialed a number  and got a man on tiie other end.  I said hello and asked who he  was, and to my amazement, he  told me that he was Santa Claus.  My heart sank, what panic, while  playing on the phone I got Santa  of all people. The he started with  the 'have you been a good girl'  routine. Of course I said yes.  When I finally hung up, I told  Pat that I had just been talking  with Santa in the North Pole. I  worried about what kind of a  Christmas I was going to lave  that year, and I never played on  the telephone again. I bet that  the guy who answered my phone  call that day has gotten many  laughs from his Santa Claus  story.  Everyone has stories that they  can remember about kids. Sometime when you need a good laugh,  sit and recall the innocent humor  that springs from unsophisticated  youth.

Well, it turns out that  while the rainfall was below  average for that month it was still  much wetter in September 1976  than it was in September 1975.  Bellmaker  Membership Secretary Norah  Hill of the Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum Society informed the  Coast News this week that Ed  Morissey of Coquitlam will be  at the Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum in Gibsons between 2:00  and 4:00 pm. on Saturday, Oct.  16th.  He will be available to visitors  for any information on his impressive collection of metal bells  from many countries, and his own  hand-carved wooden bells.  The rain fall last month  amounted to 40.9 mm as own-  pared to the September average  of 77.0 mm. September of 1975  on the other hand was the driest  on record with only0.8 mm.  The total rainfall January  through September this year has  been 916.9 mm. Last year to this  point the total rainfall was 631.  mm. Yes, that's what we  thought-it's been awetone.  400 Club  The winner of the weekly  draw for the Lions 400 Club this  week was A. E. Lynn, Box 277,  Sechelt B.C.

Get  competent  legal   advice  from  your  lawyer  before signing any papers.  TAURUS - April 21 to May 20  Everything is "coming up roses"  again for Taurus. Your magnetic  personality should  carry you  a  long way on the road to success.  A disruption in communications  won't amount to anything.  GEMINI - May 21  to June 20  Watch out for one of Dan Cupid's  arrows catching you completely  off-guard.   It  is  during  one  of  these periods in your life that you  are liable to let romance take the  place of sober reason.  CANCER - June 21 to July 21  You   may  find   that   social   engagements are tiring you out and  that your business life will suffer  in the process. It would be MOST  wise to "keep your nose to the  grindstone" right now.  LEO  -  July  22   to  August  21  Some very agreeable times ahead  for you in the near future. The  recent disagreements which have  so upset you in the past weeks  will  blow  over.   Give  them  no  further   thought.   Look   to   the  future and new friends.  VIRGO - August 22 to Sept. 21  Being overly agressive now    is  going to get you absolutely now-  where. While most of the planets  will be favouring you for a long  time to come, there's a chance  that you may become a little overconfident.  (Copyright 1976 by Trent  LIBRA  -  Sept.  22  to  Oct   22  There's a chance that you'll let  others get you extremely irritated  right now. This is completely  ridiculous. Their opinions should  have no bearing on your sound  judgement. Ignore them.  SCORPIO - Oct 23 to Nov. 21  Things have cleared up remarkably in your sign. The warlike aggressiveness that could  have caused you much harm is.  gone, and you should enjoy much  peace and contentment for many  years.  SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 Dec 20  The urge to impulsive action is  strong and should be checked  pretty carefully. It's not that  things are bad for you, but you  could make them that way if  you're not careful.  CAPRICORN - Dec. 21 Jan. 19  For the next week or so, it would  be wise to avoid 'social in-  volvments' and stick strictly to  matters dealing with business.  The urge to 'mix socially' is  strong, but you may find yourself  in a canoe without a paddle!  AQUARIUS ��� Jan. 20 - Feb. 18  A much better outlook is indicated in your solar horoscope  now. The clouds of uncertainty  that have been surrounding your  chart   have   cleared   away  PISCES - Feb. 19 to Mar. 20  If you feel antagonistic, especially around home, or towards  persons closely associated with  you, stop worrying about it.

The Royal Canadian Legion  says that, although it is 31 years  since the end of World War II,  there are thousands of veterans  and their dependents who are  not receiving a benefit or service they are entitled to -  either because they did not know  about it or because the eligibility rules have changed.  During October and early  November the Legion's 464,000  members are conducting "Operation Service" - a massive, house-  to-house canvass across Canada  to alert 1,245,000 ex-service  people and their dependents to  their rights and privileges under  the Veterans Charter.

Getting information is a problem, when you are retired. No  coffee breaks, no talks in the  elevator, and suddenly a lot fewer  people to talk to about anything.  Whom do you listen to? Do you  listen to radio hot lines? Where  do you get information about bus  discounts, super market specials,  budget cooking, travel plans,  pension programmes? SPARC  wants to know. We are interested  in the problems you have in the  marketplace.  You are a "Consumer".    A  consumer is a taxpayer, a shopper, anyone who buys a bus  ticket, uses a lawn mower,  phones City Hall, or uses public  utilities. You have a right to  make a complaint, get a second  opinion, contract for a service,  refuse a service.  SPARC'S Committee on Aging  would like to hear from you about  rip-offs, discounts, freebees,  problems felt by you or your  friends. We may produce a  "Guide to Consumerism for  Senior. Citizens".

High in good quality protein  and low in fat. That's B.C.  CodI  Some hints for best results:  You will achieve equally satisfying results whether you choose  to prepare the following recipes  using fresh or frozen B.C Cod  fillets.  When using frozen fillets it's  a good idea, to partially thaw  them before cooking.. Cod fillets  should be cooked at high temperatures and, if cooked from the  solidly frozen state, may become  overcooked on the outside before  the centre portion is done.  After partial thawing, brush  ���cod fillets with lemon juice and  dust with seasoned flour as a  first step with any recipe or cooking method you may choose, This  extra little step helps to retain  much ofthe natural fluid cf frozen  B.C. Cod fillets.  Are they done? Whether you  started with fresh or partially  thawed fillets you'll know they  are done - beautifully - if, when  parting the flesh with a fork, you  find it flakes readily, is opaque  and milky, and slightly springy to  the touch.

Carpet bowling underway  The name Harmony HaU  seemed particulaiy appropriate  on Thursday, September 30th,  when the initial meeting of the  Carpet Bowling dub was held  there. About thirty members  came to ' bowl and everyone  seemed to be having a good time.  . At the time of the last report  the names of two of die dignitaries were omitted who were  present at the opening ceremony.  They were Mrs. Ehna Tolliday,  New Horizons District Supervisor and Mr. and Mrs. Ken  Crosby. Crosby is tiie Past President of the Gibsons Lions Club.  With his customary good grace  Crosby presented O.A.P. President Jim Holt with a bottle of  champagne which was thoroughly  enjoyed by the members of the  Building Committee.  It was decided to change the  time of the meetings. The general meeting will be held on the  first Monday of the month and  Bingo will be held on the third  Monday.  Both will start at 2:00  pm. Members please take note of  these changes.  Quite a few new members are  joining the Gibsons O.A.P. and  more are sought. All senior citizens of forty or over are welcome  to join the ranks. Newcomers are  invited to visit Harmony Hall and  are assured that they will find it  well worthwhile.  President Holt says "We are  arranging different functions for  the coming season and now is the  time to get involved in them/ The  HaU was built for the membership and any organization is only  as good as its members". Holt  urged that Branch #38 of the  O.A.P. make Harmony Hall  worthy of its name.  On behalf of Branch #38, President Holt extended his thanks to  those who helped make the opening ceremony such a success.  Thanks were extended to Mayor  Larry Labonte and the Village  Council of Gibsons for the beautiful basket of flowers; to John  Holioway,   Mr.   Jorgenson   and  others for the floral decorations;  to Louise Barnes for the lovely  cake which was so tastefully  decorated;, and to Vic Lynds and  her helpers for putting on such a.  wonderful display ' of food.  Thanks also to Emory Scott, Mr.  and Mrs. Bushnell and the rest of  the Senior Citizens from Branch  #69 at Sechelt who provided, the  toe-tapping music. "You sent  home a lot of tired but happy  people with your music", said  President Holt.  Branch #38 also wished to  thank John Wilson of the Royal  Canadian Legion, Branch #109,  for the use of the chairs and Len  Coates and his family for the use  of their truck to transport the  chairs back and forth.  President Jim Holt said the  motto of the O.A.P.'s Harmony  Hall was " 'We are all for one  and one for all', so let's get  together and make Harmony Hall  the showpiece of the Sunshine  Coast, and may harmony prevail  in all our undertakings in the  future years."

HUGH BAIRD  Opposite Sechelt Legion    885-2523 Days   885-2108 Eves. 12  Coast News, October 5,1976  The most important thing to  notice this week is that the film  "Money, Money, Money" will  be shown Thursday Oct. 7, and  not on the usual Wednesday..  Screening time will be 8:00 at.  the Twilight Theatre.  "Money, Money, Money" is  a French comedy directed by  Claude Lelouch. The Kwahtah-  moss Film Society has previously  shown two Lelouch films, "Le  Voyou" and "La Bonne Annee",  and those who were lucky enough  to have seen these will know of  the Director's fast-paced, light-  hearted approach to film making.  Lelouch often delves into the  world of crooks and "Money,  Money, Money" presents a gang  of five charming con-men who are  without an evil bone in their  bodies.  These fellows aquire large  amounts of money by heisting  safes, kidnapping an impressive  assortment of people, and hijacking airplanes. But considerate they are, as it is only the very  rich these culprits want money  by Keith Wallace  from, and to show they are kindly  souls, they forfeit $2,000,000. of  stolen loot to save a pet dog's life.  This likable lot of thieves is  played by Lino Ventura, Charles  Denner, Charles Gerard, Aldo  Maccione, and JaquesBrel. They  are an excellent team of entertainers managing to maintain  their individual personalities  without getting lost in the shuffle.  Next week's film "McCabe and  Mrs. Miller" will be shown Wednesday, October 13.  Fruit season canned  Sweet, juicy, colorful Okanagan  fruit, shipped by the carload, is  familiar in grocery stores across  the country and overseas. But'  the on-the-spot showcase of the  valley beside the big blue lakes  and of its near neighbor the  Similkameen Valley, is the roadside fruit stand.  Some 150 of these direct-  from-the-farm sales outlets tempt  the motorist to taste fruit fresh  from vine or tree along a route  starting at about Hedley on the  west, and extending from the  United States border just below  Osoyoos north along Highway 97  as it follows the lakeshore line  through Oliver, Penticton,  Summerland, Kelowna, Vernon,  Armstrong and Enderby and the  many smaller centres in between.  The fruit stand season starts  in June, when the rich reds of  cherries' succeed the delicate  pastels of valleys full of blossom.  For the more permanent and  diversified stands, of which there  are about 70, the bounty of the  land spills like a cornucopia as  muted colors of aprioots and  peaches are succeeded by the  deep blues of prune and other  plum varieties, and the soft,  pale golds of pears give way to  apples in greens, reds and rich  golds. Complementing the glory  of color of the massed fruit displays are the delicious and varied  aromas ofthe different fruits.  While most stands are primarily in the business of selling  fruit, vegetables also appear at  many,   starting  with  the early  asparagus, and carrying on with  tomatoes, cucumbers, corn and  miscellaneous field vegetables  ripening in increasing numbers as  the season advances. Right into  fall and through October, the  various melons and squashes add  a variety of greens and golds to  the picture ~ and what would  Hallowe'en and Thanksgiving be  without pumpkins?  The season is extended for the  permanent stands by on-the-spot  cold storage and vegetable  humidifying facilities, so that  very late fall visitors may still  take home fresh produce to freeze  or can to prolong the pleasure of  the garden valleys' summer.  More numerous than the  permanent stands are the many  which set up for perhaps a month  to sell a single crop, or farms  which simply put a sign on the  gate from time to time to seD the  results of a day's picking of tree-  ripened fruit. These small selling  operations are important in that  they give the grower a market for  some of the varieties which are  grown in quantities too small to  interest packing houses.  Some 15 kinds of apples are  needed to provide cross-pollini-  zation, while only six are of  interest to the packers. Similarly  with the apricots, and so on,  giving the motorist the opportunity to buy first quality fruit  directly from the grower.  Okanagan fruit stands had their  very modest start in Osoyoos in  the 30's, selling very limited  quantities of cantaloupes.    The  roadside stand as a regular part  of the grower's business had to  wait another 15 or 20 years -  for the completion of the Hope-  Princeton Highway, with the consequent growth in popularity of  travel to the interior valleys.  Many stands which started out  with a card table or a few planks  laid across sawhorses have since  grown to most attractive and  ambitious proportions, with some  of the most advanced merchandising concepts of any of North  America's fruit-growing areas.  Many ofthe original stand owners  and their families - in what is  essentially a family business -  are still "at the same stand" in  more sophisticated form after  20 years.  The Similkameen accounts  for about 40 per cent of fruit  stand sales, the Okanagan 60 per  cent. More than 10,000 (9,000-  tonnes) of the main tree-fruit  crops alone are sold by the  regular fruit stands - apart from  the afore-mentioned direct  farm sales. Total fruit stand  sales exceed $6 million a year,  and give employment to about  450 people ��� to say nothing of  the pleasure and excellent value  in fresh fruit, vegetables and  assorted allied lines such as  ciders and fruit candies which  they provide for the travelling  public. In addition to private  motorists, most tour buses make  at least one fruit stand stop in  the Okanagan and Similkameen  valleys.  Need a job?
