 r'  ���provincial   Library,  Victoria,   B.   C.  '..'i'o  BEACHCOMBER       i  LAND \  xxXr- iu  Smouldering rains are ��D that is left of the Pender Harbour Secondary School. Ironically,  only the concrete furnace roonrisleft standing..  A   ���* ~  vi*  r<- - j-nis t  School Board press release  The fire at. Pender Harbour Secondary School during the early  hours of Friday morning, September 10th, completely gutted the  main, building. Two portable  classrooms were saved due to the  outstanding efforts of firemen  who.'responded from Pender,  Sechelt and'Roberts Creek departments.  ' At a special meeting of the  School Board held that afternoon  reports were received from principal Frank Holmes, and . the  Board's Management' Committee. A call for immediate action  resulted in a two level approach  to the problem.  First, the need to offer instruction to the Pender Harbour  students as rapidly as passible  will be handled by establishing  substantial temporary accomodation within the Pender Harbour  school attendance area. The  search for portable classrooms  and local accomodation is well  in hand and a cohesive plan  should be ready within die week.  Secondly, a programme  to establish a permanent facility  is considered to be top level priority. Before any significant move is  made in this direction, local  opinion will be sought at a community meeting to be held at  Madeira Park Elementary School  on Thursday, September 16th,  starting at 8:00 p.m. All residents  of the Pender Harbour Secondary  School attendance area are urged  to attend this meeting which will  be chaired by Mr. Mark Myers.  Pender Harour Secondary  School. students are asked to  watch for an announcement in  next week's edition of the, three  local newspapers to discover  where and when they should report for classes.  There will be no formal classes  before September 27th but students may be called in in small  groups to'gain access to instructional materials.  Project shelved  A meeting of the committee on  Government held in ~ Sechelt  on September 15th at which the  regional board and the Gibsons  municipal council were represented saw lit agreed that the  . proposal concerning the enlargement of the boundaries of Gibsons to include Areas 4E' and 'F'  would be shelved due to the  inability of local representatives  to attain a meeting with the  Minister of Municipal Affairs  or a clear statement of future  policy from the present provincial  government.  Alderman Stuart Metcalfe  of the Gibsons Village Council  explained that the original  intention of the proposal was to  include the Port Mellon mill  in the tax base of a. district  municipality. "I know of no other  mill in the province,'' said  Alderman Metcalfe, "which  contributes as little to the surrounding communities."  The recent NDP government  had provided funds for the study  of the proposal, not all of which  had been spent. At the meeting  held last Wednesday night it  was moved and passed that the  Gibsons Council should be re-  numerated at the regular rate  for all meetings held to discuss  the, proposed enlargements of  village boundaries. Any funds  still left on hand would be placed  irr* trust fund for possible use  in this area.  Pender Harbour Secondary School was burnt to the. ground in a  fire that broke out early on Friday morning. The main building was'  completely destroyed despite the valiant efforts ofthe Pender Harbour,  Sechelt and Roberts Creek Fire Depatments. Only two portable classrooms near the school were saved from the holocaust.  Fire Chief in Pender Harbour Barry Wiibee said that the fire sensor  equipment in tiie. school was outdated and by die time they activated  the fire alarm at 1:40 a.m. on Friday morning two-thirds of the building  was ablaze. Fire Chief Wiibee told the Coast News that he had written  letters over the past two years drawing the attention of the School  Board to the fire alarm system at PfenderHarbour Secondary.  The battle with the fire was further hindered by die scarcity of  water in the area, particularly in  September when the creek on .the  north side 1,500 feet from the  school virtually dries up.,In the  emergency the fire, department  put their Plan 'B' into action,  which involved running 7D0 feet  ' of hose through the bush to a private lake which they had made  previous arrangements to use in  the event of an emergency.  "It was a miracle that anything  was saved at all,"said Wiibee.  ' "The building was a fire: trap  without adequate fire doors and  the; resulting air tunnels inside  made the flames impossible to  contain.'' \ Wiibee praised the  joint efforts of Sechelt Fire Department and Roberts Greek Fire  Department. He said that in the  water-scarce situation the firemen faced the pump truck  brought up by the Robots Creek  Fire Department- proved particularly invaluable, making three  seperate runs to the Rigger's  Roost Hotel to load up with water  and take it to the fire.  "It was just a matter of time  until something like this happened," said Wiibee. "No new  public buildings should be built  without early warning fire protection systems along with proper  fire stops, fire doors, and fire  walls." Wiibee said that tf the  school is built on the same site it  should have available a 300,000  gallon dam with a continuous line  around the building and at least  three strategically located  fire hydrants in the vicinity of  the school. -������������,  Regional board director Jack  Paterson of area 'A' brought up  the question of die fire hazard  presented by the Pender Harbour  ;' Secondary at a Regional Board  meeting in June cf this year.  He explained that the lower reaches of Klein (Seek are a salmon  spawning ground but that a plan  had been proposed whereby the  upper reaches of the creek above  the salmon spawning grounds.,  could be tapped. The resulting  water pressure from the height  could provide one hundred and  twenty pounds fed into a sprinkler system. "The important thing,  however," said Paterson, "is not  to look backwards but ahead.  We must make sure that the education of the young people in this  region should not suffer.''  Secretary-Treasurer of the  School Board, Roy Mills, said that  the fire detection system at the  school, which was built in the  mid-fifties, was due to be updated. Mills explained that under  anew policy introduced by minister of Education Pat McGeer,  the school carried a $1,000,000  deductable   clause.   Hie   B.C.  School Trustees Association had  complained to the minister about  this new policy and that he had  answered that a contingency fund  would be set up in case of emer-  gencies. It is understood that this  contingency fund has already just  about been exhausted after the'  fire which wiped out Campbell.  River Junior Secondary School a,  few weeks ago. The insurable va-j  lue of Pender Harbour Secondary  School was just under $1,000,000.  Mills said that tiie School Board  had investigated the possibility of  using the old hospital in the Garden Bay area but the rooms were  too small for it to be of any value  as a school building. In all probability the Pender Harbour students would be housed in portables in the Madeira Park area.  MM"V��i^^^^w'^^^^i^iX'^d.  The Regional Board's meeting  held on September 9th was  held in conjunction with a meeting of the Planning Committee.  At the meeting the board received a letter of resignation from  Regional Board Planner Adrian  Stott. In giving his reasons to  the-board, Stott explained that  he had started working in this  district on the premise that he  would be here for three years.  He had now been in the district  for over two and a half years  and felt that he had completed  what he set out to do. The resignation is to take effect November 30th, 1976.  In other regional board developments, third reading was  given to the Halfmoon Bay  Specified Area and Loan Bylaw.  The bylaw is designed to provide  funds for the creation of a volunteer fire department for that  portion of regional area 'B'  between Bayview Road and Wood  Bay which at the present time  lacks the services of a fire department. After third reading the  bylaw must get approval from the  provincial government in Victoria.  If government approval is,  obtained the bylaw must then go  to a referendum of the .public'  The amount involved for the  institution of a volunteer . fire  department in the Halfmoon  Bay area is $90,000.  At the Planning Committee  meeting held 'that same night  it was decided that the regional  board out of general revenues  would be responsible for the  installation of several street  lights in the area. Street lights  for which the board would  accept responsibility would be  primarily located at several  junctions with Highway 101 and  specially designated public  areas.  New lights will be installed  at the juncion of Egmont Road  and Highway 101 in Pender  Harbour; at the junction of Mason  Road and Highway 101 in West  Sechelt; and at the junction of  North West Bay Road and  Highway 101, also in West  Sechelt. In Roberts Greek a light  will be installed at the junction  of Marlene Road and Highway  101.  One   area   designated   as   a  ^M^k^^^^^m*  ; -vicinity ^f the  West  Sechelt  Elementary* School at the junction  of Mason and North West   Bay  'Roads.;. ���  jack Paterson, Chairman of  the Planning Committee of the  Regional Board, said that where  residents wished to haw an  area designated a special public  area to be lighted at thr expense  of the regional board they would  be required to present a petition  to the board bearing a requisite  number of signatures. "Our  object, always," said Paterson,  "is to keep the area taxes as  low as possible." Paterson  stated that advertisements  will be placed in local papers  in the hear future explaining  what the board is doing in this  regard and giving details concerning the requisite number of  signatures and other matters.  Paterson also said that two  more lights are to be installed  in Davis Bay which has been  designated a special area.  Funds for these installations  will come from the taxes of  Davis Bay residents.  Shipwreck at Nelson - largest keel poured here  Pender Harbour Secondary School is shown here in pre-disaster days.  A young Canadian couple, Ride  and Nancy Ion originally from  Orillia, Ontario, came dose to  catastrophe last week at the treacherous entrance of Hidden Basin on Nelson Island when their  Tahiti, Ketch, Vailima, ran onto  a rock ledge at low slack tide.  The Vailima was grounded at  4:30 p.m. and was aground for  approximately forty minutes as  the tide began to rush in through  the narrow gap into Hidden  Basin at a rate of ten knots  The rip tide battered the Vailima  and., wrenched the ketch through  approximately three hundred  and sixty degrees before the ri  sing water freed her.  By the time it floated free the  Vilaima's lead keel was broken  in half by the battering on the  rocks, she was taking water faster than the' Ions could clear it  With their hand pumps. "We  were, definitely sinking,"; said  Rick Ion.  Fortunately for the Ions - the  coastal tug the Joe Drinkwater,  skippered by Lee Roberts, was in  Hidden Basin at the time visiting  Mrs. Frederickson of Omega Harbour and came to their rescue.  The tug towed the ketch and  beached it on a sandy beach in  the basin then provided the Ions  with a gasoline-driven pump of  two inch diameter which enabled  them to dry outtheirboat.  The Vailima was towed at high  slack tide through the Hidden Basin gap by the Joe Drinkwater and  towed around to the F and W  Boatyards in Pender Harbour.  The Ions had been attending the  University of Hawaii for four  years and just successfully completed the Pacific crossing without mishap. They were on a cruise  up the coast prior to taking up  jobs in the Sydney area of Victoria.  Once the Vailima was safely.  harboured at the.F and W Boatyards, Les Fowler of Pender Harbour contacted Mainland Foundry  in Vancouver and received their  bid on the pouring of a new keel.  Fowler then decided to see if the  job could be done locally, keeping  the money in the area. He contacted Dave Kydd, a sculptor in  bronze with foundry experience  who lives aboard his boat the Gini  II in Gibsons Harbour, and Kydd  and Fowler undertook the major  task of pouring a new lead keel  right in Pender Harbour.  The task involved pouring, of  3,700 pounds of molten lead into  a keel 16 feet 6 inches long and  was probably the largest lead keel  ever constructed on the peninsula. Fowler and Kydd made the  pattern, made the sand mould -  definitely a first for the area, and  poured the keel.  The process, as described to  the Coast News by David Kydd  involves the use of silica sand and  sodium silicate, a thick liquid  which used to be known as water  glass and is said to have been  used in the preserving of eggs.  The silica sand and the sodium silicate is packed around the pattern, holes are poked in the sand  ., and C02 gas is squirted between  the pattern and the moulding  box. This solidifies the sand to  the consistency of sandstone,  the pattern is then removed lea;  ving the form ofthe keel.  Kydd and Fowler thai heated  the lead in an old bathtub using  two tiger-torches, large blowtorches fuelled by propane. The tub  was set in the middle of the keel  and the lead poured two ways.  When the 3,700 pounds of lead  was molten the special plug was  pulled and the mould filled.  The advantage of the tub was that  it was bottom poured leaving  the slag behind and giving a very  clean, clear casting. The entire  operation took seven days for the  two-man crew.  It is safe to assume that the  Ions will not soon forget their  visit to the peninsula.  eiiver  EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday  BBB Sunshine Coast News, September 14,1976  Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.

Dixon  Live-aboards  The story of the pouring of the lead  keel in Pender Hatbour contained in  these pages has some interesting side issues which might be considered. Here  was a case in which a traveller in distress  was helped and a considerable amount of  money which might have gone to Vancouver was kept in the local community by  the ingenuity and resourcefulness of  two men.  What is interesting is that both of  these men are live-aboards, that is they  live on board boats - one in Gibsons Harbour and one in Pender Harbour. Live-  aboards have been subjected to an almost  constant stream of criticism and false  abuse by this or that public official seeking popularity by pandering to the fears  of the populace with its natural tendency  to distrust all whose life-style is not completely traditional.  Admittedly this is only story but it  must do something to indicate that a-  mong the people who live on boats are  some very considerable people who have  much to add to the communities adjacent  to them. At the very least it behooves  those of us who live on the land to make  the acquaintance of those who live on the  water before presuming to judge them or  their style of living. To do otherwise is to  live in prejudice.  Fires and things  One has to feel sorry for the embattled  trustees and staff of School District 46.  Just as they were aboutto get their house  again in order after the dislocation caused  by the fire at Elphinstone Secondary  School in July, 1973, they are forced a-  gain into an emergency situation after the  disastrous fire which levelled Pender  Harbour Secondary School early on Friday, September 10th this year.  This second major fire to destroy local  schools raises several related questions  which must be considered, however. If,  as Fire Chief Wiibee states, the attention  of the local School board had been drawn  on several occasions over the past two  years to the dangers of fire at,Pander  Harbour Secondary, one can only express  surprise that the ihaiSfer did'hot rank  higher on their list of priorities. Hindsight wisdom, of course, is always a  particularly obnoxious quality but this  board is surely aware of the three difficult years which followed the Elphinstone fire and one would have the right  to expect that the prevention of other  fires in school buildings would have been  an item of high priority. The community  has the right to know that adequate fire  detection and prevention systems are installed in all school buildings.  A second unhappy possibility which  must be considered is the possibility of  arson. The Fire Marshall's report will not  be available for several days and it may  be that this fire will be found to have  been caused by faulty wiring or something of that nature. The Elphinstone  experience, however, as well as the spate  of fires in schools reported around the  province in the past few years must raise  some serious questions about the quality  of the education system. It is simply not  good enough to tut-tut about young  people these days or talk about the need  for stricter policing or harsher penalties.  The fact of the matter is that if even a  considerable percentage of the  school  fires are being set by disaffected young  people something is wrong with the system and it does no good to blind ourselves  to that fact. As a point of interest it would  be of value to compare in any given year  the number of students who enrol hopefully in high school in Grade Eight with  the average number who graduate from  Grade Twelve..It will be found the difference is sometimes as high as fifty 'per  cent. In effect this means that for almost  half of the students who go to high school  the one clear thing they learn as a result  of their experience is that they are failures. Resentment is the natural result of  this lesson. Any system with a failure rate  this high stands in obvious need of restructuring.  -Finally, one must surely take a look at  the policies of the Social Credit government as it apparantly relates to fire insurance in schools. The last thing the  B.C. School Trustees Association can be  called is a radical organization yet it  raised its voice in protest when McGeer,  our Education Minister who earlier distinguished himself with some particularly  crass remarks on the subject of car insurance, announced that thereafter  school fire insurance would carry a  $1,000,000 deductible clause. This government came to office telling us and itself that it was going to be a government:  which would rationalize economics in  the province. Its performance so far has  been distinguished by the high degree of  figure juggling and confusion brought on  by the urgency with which it sought to  prove its predecessor incompetent. The  issue of school fire insurance can, in the  light cast by the Pender Harbour fire  where the school building had an insurable value of just under $1,000,000, be  seen to be another example of Social Credit false economics which again will  prove only to be of benefit to the larger  insurance companies and to the detriment of the communities and schools  of this province.  ...from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Peninsula garbage pick-up service is  still in a disturbing tangle.

L.R.Peterson  Commentary   Inflation   iloiVlU  A.I.B.   budget  Up  This newspaper, the various  local television and radio stations,  the Vancouver daily papers and  in fact, almost all aspects of this  nation's advertising media will  soon be flooded with over one  million dollars worth of pro-  Anti-Inflation Board advertising.  Prime Minister Trudeau, in his  infinite   wisdom,   has   deemed  it necessary to spend public  funds in order to convince us  that the policies of Trudeau and  the Liberal Party are in fact,  both feasible and responsible for  the drop in the inflation rate  from a pre-controls 12% to it's  present 8% plus levd.  I have little against the. program. Generally it must j be  agreed that the AIB is responsible, at least in part, for jthe  down turn in inflation and despite  the    high    dedbal    objections  raised by both the NDP and the  Canadian Labor Congress I can  see few signs vof any lasting  financial disaster to either the  union members or the national  business community. The vast  majority of the Canadian people  are dissatisfied with the Liberals  not because of AIB controls but  more likely due to the high  pressure sale of such controversial issues such as the abolition  of capital punishment, the current  bilingual policy and unemployment.  Trudeau is at fault- however,  '��� in trying to thrust what is clearly  a Liberal policy down our throats  by way- of high-powered Toronto  advertising techniques. If the AIB  is indeed strong enough, it will  stand on its own without the  necessity of a sales campaign.  It is only through the open discussion of government policy  that our heritage of democratic  freedom is pressed. To state  that those who do not support the  program are in some way lacking  in patriotism, is an insult not  only to the opposition parties but  also to these people who have  chosen to excersize their inherent  freedom to criticize a government  policy which affects the basic  pocket book well being of the  nation.  If this was only a one time,  one million dollar shot the  Prime Minister's ' action may  still be basically defensible. In  the  announcement of the new  campaign, Trudeau indicated  that the AIB was at the mercy of  the media and it was further  suggested that until this point  the board had faithfully refrained  from advertising and public  relations as befits such a controversial body. Our weekly stream  of A.I.B. press released would  tend to indicate otherwise. This  office receives an average of  aproximately two press releases  per week from the AIB and when  the cost is multiplied over the  hundreds of newspapers in the  country it becomes reasonable  to assume that the Anti-Inflation  Board is already in possession  .of a rather large public relations  budget.  "  Further,   it   is   irrational   to.  assume   that   those   who   feel  the AIB dedsions have personally  hurt them will be willing to  change sides after reading a  half page advertisment in some  future issue of the Coast News.  It is a matter of preaching to  the already converted.  The people of Canada want  economic controls, but they  also want the right to make up '  their own minds without the  added pressure of the incumbent  governments one-sided advertising pressure. Mr. Trudeau,  give us a bit of credit. It is time  we started thinking and judging  governmental potides without  pressure froth outside sources  by they government, labpj or  business. Vi:'-  Musings     "All of us is ignorant  99  ��� ���������  John Burnside  I met Leo Larocque when I was  an ambitious, up-and-coming  young man in the headquarters  of the Canadian National Rail-,  ways in Montreal in the mid-  fifties. He was a very rare spec-  man in that time - a French  Canadian executive in a large  Anglo-Saxon dominated corporation. In the first month I worked  in the C.N.R. I noticed that all  the executives had English names  and all the janitors and elevator  operators were French Canadian.  It was quite openly discriminatory  and was repeated in companies  all over the dty.  Leo had started working for the  railway at the age of fifteen,  driving little machines that  hauled baggage about in the  subterranean levels of Central  Station. He had charmed or  bullied, scratched, fought,  clawed his way through every  menial job related to baggage  in the station and had won his  way to the second top job in the  baggage department, system  wide, coast to coast. The top job  was held by a man named Eastwood who knew nothing whatever  about baggage handling and was  just putting in time till a larger  job opened up for him. He left  everything to Leo who was still  at that time only in his. mid-  thirties.  I had arrived in Canada a  couple of years previously,  not quite sixteen years old- a  young Scotsman determined to  make good in the new world.  My career had not opened too  auspiciously. When the Personel  Committee sent me over to be  looked over by the. manager of  my first office to see if I had what  it took to be a mail clerk, he had  opened the interview by asking  me my name with pen poised.,  My Scots accent was so broad  at that time that I said my name  with growing apprehension three  times before he threw pen and  paper at me with some considerable exasperation and said, "Oh,  for God's sake, write it down.'"  Which I did and he hired me  anyway.  First thing I did, I went to wotk  on  the  decent.   I hated bring  asked to say things so that'  people could tell me how cute it  sounded. I grew toed of saying  everything three times if I had to  communicate something. By the  time I went to woric for Leo, I  had virtually no trace of my  accent. The second thing I did,  I started going to night school to  take shorthand and typing  because I noticed that the fastest  moving promotion stream was  comprised of male secretaries.  It stood to reason, the bosses  knew them. I mean when you  make daily trips with important  black briefcases and come back  promptly with a drunkard's  whisky he tends to remember  you at promotion time.  Working for Leo was my first  job as secretary and I can tell  you I was feeling pretty smug  and pleased with myself that  summer. I had outstripped all  the mail clerks who joined the  company the same year I did.  None of them were secretaries  yet. One or ' two were junior  stenographers, some were typist  file clerks but I was the only  secretary. To add to my happiness, Leo was sick in hospital  and for five weeks I had no work  to do at all. It was marvellous.  I came in late and read the  morning Gazette before taking a  long, long coffee break. I used to  go down to the basement to the  tunnel . which connected the  building with the subterranean  levels of the station and up the  concourse of the station itself  where I'd drink tea, read magazines and watch the pretty  girls for a while, then bade to the  office, tidy up the desk and off.io  an early luncfi. In the afternoon I varied the procedure  to the extent of reading the ���  afternoon Montreal Star in place  of the Gazette. I've always had  a real knack for doing very  Httle.  The came the ominous Friday  afternoon when it was whispered  that Leo would be bade on  Monday and an air of tension and  foreboding gripped the easy  going office. On Monday mom- ;  ing he came, like a tornado.  He had had a major ulcer oper  ation and had been warned that  he must not drink hard stuff  that he must learn to take it  easy. He ignored the whole thing.  He got through nearly a bottle  a day in the office alone and  he worked like a maniac. The  first morning he rattled off at  me in machine-gun broken  English a dozen letters and a  couple of dozen telegrams.  Leo was back and the holiday  was over.    .  Actually we got along well.  He rapidly discovered that it  saved a lot of his time if he just  told me what letters were to be  written and let me write them  because his English was not  good. So I was a success with  the terrible Leo. I had five weeks  free, paid time then had gone to  work under constant tension - the  man was quite mad - and had  done better than I could have  dreamed. I was as cocky and as  convinced that I was a world  beater as only an eighteen year  old can be cocky and convinced.  Two months went by and it was  close to Christmas and the  buzzer sounded my little signal  and I grabbed my pad and  pencil and hustled into the office.  Leo expansively waved the  notebook aside. It was a Christmas drink he wanted to have  with me. With ostentatious  courtesy he took two small  glasses from the drawer of his'  desk, polished them and placed  beside them a foil bottle of  Scotch whisky and proceeded to  pour me a drink, offering me  some water from the pitcher I  contstantly kept full at his elbow.  I declined the water, feeling very  adult and sophisticated, I was-  going to drink it neat as Leo did,  the water was only for viators.  And, oh, I was die proud one.  Drinking whisky with Leo' right  in the office during working  hours. Very pleased with myself,  indeed, I was.  After he filled my glass, he  said, "You write good letters."  Cont'd on page3  Pender Harbour Perspective  Well, Pender Harbour has finally made it on the map folks  with live T / coverage on good old  Channel Six, but few people here,  I'm sure, feel it was worth the  sacrifice. I refer, of course, to  the fire which destroyed all but  two portables of the high school  on Thursday night.  Everyone lost something in the  fire: students lost their brand new  supplies; teachers lost their personal collections of references  and teaching supplies; the community at large lost .the only building here adequately equipped to  teach their youth. Fire Marshall  reports on the origin of the fire  are still unavailable, but credit  should be given to the Peninsula  fire departments for their valiant  efforts to put out a fire without an  immediate water supply.    :  The school board has iacted  very quickly to find a temporary  solution best for the students  here. At a board meeting Friday  night the decision was made to  rent and/or buy portables, locate  them somewhere in the Madeira  Park-Pender Harbour area, and to  attempt to get the school back in  session within seven to ten days.  Parents and students alike who  have already begun to talk about  going to Vancouver should note  that their required courses will  be given  here soon.  A public  meeting to discuss the future  plans for a school here will be  held at Madeira Park Elementary  School at 8:00 p.m., Thursday,  September 16th. Everyone who  has feelings, opinions, or an 'interest in the education of Pender  Harbour youth should get to the  meeting and give their school  board some community input.  Another tragedy this week was  the unfortunate loss of Marge  Bachop. Many members of the  community will miss her and extend their sympathies to Jock  Bachop.  : Rumblings about our new  medical clinic seem to have fo-  cussed around the fact that when  the clinic was called Saturday  night no doctor was available  and the amb ulance was in S e-  ch'elt. After some discussion with ;  the people working to get the clinic in order, these seem to be.  the pertinent facts: Pender  Harbour has an ambulance but  communication hookups are not  ready so it still sits in Mark  Myers' back yard; Pender Har-;  bour has one resident doctor employed by the B.C. government  who is required to spend one out  of every eight nights at the clinic.  Because one doctor cannot be  expected to provide twenty-four  hour emergency service, a spe  cial code communication ^system  has been devised so that an emergency call to the clinic is supposed to . automatically go  through to St. Mary's and a doctor there. Unfortunately B.C. Tel  hasn't got this forking yet.  Therefore, basically the emergency situation here-is the same  as it's always been and your best  bet is probably to call a fireman  (like Willie Matties who did a  great job Saturday night) or take a  first aid course. If you think, as  some do, that we should have two  resident doctors and a complete  twenty-four hour emergency.ser-  vice here, get out your pens and  paper and write yourproviiidal  government. The people at the  clinic are doing their best to untangle institutional red tape and  get things operating properly.  7 Wow, what a depressing column! Hopefully Pender Harbour  will sport much livelier news next  week, so keep those cards and  letters streaming in. Anything  cheery will do! IjMjfce I close,  I must thank the two unname-  ables who phoned at some/Unearthly hour to give me i'lhe  'scoop' on the fire. Caught up inutile ' excitement of really 'hotV  news, they apparently forgot that  this wasn't and isn't a daily  column.  t  * t Sunshine Coast News, September 14,1978  flirt <���*�����"  _-���  ��dU-     .  �����"   * y.r,       * *      >  The Beachcombers television show achieves a new low for realism with the importation  of a dog team of Siberian Huskies complete with sled on wheels for use on their programme  reputedly about this rainy coast.  The Quebec government is taking  a stand on advertising directed at  children. Quite simply, they plan  to make such advertising illegal.  You can correctly assume that the  advertisers are not reacting with  bemused calm.  -The government as the representative of the people is coming  to grips with the intertwined  problems of the public good and  the individual right. Does the individual industrialist have the  right to advertise whatever product is manufactured, however  and whenever it suits, regardless  ofthe effects; versus, the government's mandate to pass laws restricting an individual's harmful  actions? Historically, this is a  feirly recent problem. Especially  as it relates to consumer issues.  After all there was a time when  governments, in good conservative tradition, took office with  staunch resolve to do as little as  possible.  , ����� Manufacturers are directing  'their advertising at the naive  and impressionable minds of  children, instead of the presumably more objective and less  'impressionable parents. The ad  vertising industry on their part  can see no harm in child directed advertisements. They argue  that the child is the actual consumer and should be given the  chance to choose the product that  most closely satisfies his or her  wants. Doesn't it warm your heart  to know they are looking out for  their best interests. Furthermore,  they see this direct consumer advertising as creating a new and  healthful situation in the home.  It brings the child into 'discussions' with the parents. Can you  imagine a five yearold child as he  or she sits calmly and dry eyed  puts forth the reasons that make  the purchase of 'Eroot Loops'  cereal imperative.  What the advertisers are not  byT.H.Hip  telling you is that if it were properly packaged and promoted  they could sell a drought to a farmer. Any doubters should think  back to that time before mankind  discovered he couldn't live  without the electric toothbrush,  instant everything, tiie throw-  away razor, feminine hygiene  sprays, inorganic fruit juices and  the uniform and stackable potato chip.  Of course advertisers claim  only to lay the products before the  consumer (freedom of choice).  They deny the ability to create a  market for items hitherto considered unnecessary.  If we can beat our way through  their double talk, we can come to  an important conclusion: not all  TV advertisers are honest people and if they can make fools out  of adults maybe we should think  seriously about sparing our children.  If I've offended airy of you people addicted to junk hems, take-  heart. There's an all new snack  cracker coming out, made from  restructured, partially digested  wood fibres and free of natural  flavours. Its reportedly better  than the real thing.

Flying  MUSINGS CONTD(  I made a small gracious, self-  deprecating gesture which was  pure mock modesty. Leo watched  me with his shrewd and knowing  eyes. Then he said, "Dere are  guys on skid row dat write good  letters.*' What was that? Where  did that come from? I put the  whisky glass down. Then he let  me have it. He told me in detail  and with terrifying exactitude  how I spent my time while he  was in hospital two months  before. I mean, he even knew  the proportion of the time in the  concourse that was spent girl-  watching. The reason was simple.  Leo had worked with absolutely  everyone in that station. Those  he couldn't bully could be charmed.   Everybody  wds  Leo's   in  former. They curried his favor by  telling stories about each other  and me. That understanding  came later. At the. time I could  only listen in amazement and  mounting embarassment.  This was no editorial comment,  it was all straight reporting.  Leo paused and leaned back  sipping . his whisky. I studied  my fingernails with my whisky  forgotten beside me. Defence  was impossible. Then he laid the  punch line on me. He leaned  forward and said, oh so softly,  "Never forget dis. AH of us is  ignorant - just about different  t'ings."  It's the best advice Y ever  got. And, Leo,- I've never forgotten.  J.B.

He called his barnyard  neighbours and said: "If we work  together and plant this wheat, we wi 11  have some fine bread to eat. Who wil I  help me plant the wheat?"  "Not I," said the Cow. "Not I," said  the Duck. "Not I," said the Goose.  "Then I will," said the Little Red  Rooster and he did.  After the wheat started growing,  the ground turned dry and there was  no rain in sight. "Who will help me  water the wheat?" said the Little Red  Rooster.  "Not I," said the Cow. "I'd lose my  workman's compensation," said the  Pig. "Equal rights," said the Goose.  "Then I will," said the Little Red  Rooster and he did.  The wheat grew tall and ripened  into golden grain. "Who will help me  reap the wheat?" asked the Little Red  Rooster.  "I'm waiting for a guaranteed  annual wage," said the Cow. "Not I,"  said the Duck. "Out of my  classification," said the Pig. "Not I,"  said the Goose. "Then I will," said the  Little Red Rooster and he did.  When it came time to  grind the flour, "Not I,"  said the Cow. "I'd  lose my unemployment insurance,"  said the Duck.  When it came  time to bake the  bread. "That's  overtime forme," said the Cow. "I'm a  dropout and never learned how," said  the Duck. "I'd lose my welfare  benefits," said the Pig. "If I'm the only  one helping, that's discrimination,"  said the Goose.  "Then I will," said the Little Red  Rooster and he did. He baked five  loaves of fine bread and held them up  for his neighbours to see.  "I want some," said the Cow. "I  want some," said the Duck. "I want  some," said the Pig. "I demand my  share," said the Goose.    .  "No," said the Little Red Rooster.  "I can rest for awhile and eat five  loaves myself."  "Excess profits," cried the Cow.  "Capital ist leech," screamed the  Duck. "Company fink," grunted the  Pig. "Equal rights," screamed the  Goose. And they hurriedly painted  Cicket signs ana marchedaround the  ittle Red Rooster, singing, "We shall  overcome." And they did.       ���  For when  the Farmer  came to investigate  the com  motion, he said, "You must not be  greedy, Little Red Rooster. Look at  the oppressed Cow. Look at the  disadvantaged Duck. Look at the  underprivileged Pig. Look at the less  fortunate Goose. Vou are guilty of  making sfecond-class citizens of  them."  "But-but-but I earned the bread,"  protested the Little Red Rooster.  "Exactly," the wise Farmer said.  "That is the wonderful free enterprise  system; anybody in the barnyara can  earn as much as he wants. You should  be happy to have all this freedom. In  other barnyard6, you would.have to  give all your loaves to the Farmer.  Here you give four loaves to your  suffering neighbours."  And they lived happily ever after.  Including the Little Red Rooster, who  smiled and crowed, "I am grateful, I  am grateful."  But his neighbours wondered  why he never baked any more bread.

The development is the project of a  group call Gibsons Harbour Ltd. Storythis page.  Kraus....an asset to our community  There was This Country in the  Morning, then This Morning, and.  beginning September 20, Mor-  ningside, the new national radio  program, coast to coast, from  9:13 am to noon, Monday through  Friday.  The   co-hosts   &t  the   new  national magazine are Harry  Brown, formerly with As It  Happens and Maxine Crook, a  story editor and contributor to the  preceding morning programs.  The emphasis of the program  will still be current affairs but the  new producers want to bring  the whole country into the show,  live, rather than taking the show  like a travelling circus across the  country from Toronto. "We'll  have interesting people interviewed live on the air from  studios all over the country,  in effect travelling the country  everyday. I'm looking for a more  fast moving program," she said.  An avid admirer of radio in the  thirties    and    forties    Christa  One of the unsung heroes of  the Peninsula is Glen Kraus of  Roberts Creek. He is the fire-  chief of Roberts Creek efficient  volunteer fire department and is  also the man who more often than  not winds up at the scene of  traffice accidents in his role as  owner of K & E Towing helping  to extricate the injured from the  wreck.  Kraus arrived in .Gibsons in  .1961 aboard the Langdale Queen  on its first run into this area.  He had been working for Black  Ball Ferries aboard the Langdale  )ueen when it was bought  by B.C. Ferries. Glen started as  an oiler on the boats and ended  up as second engineer. He is in  deaf in his left ear and has a  metal plate to aid his hearing  in his right due to his time of  service in the engine rooms of  the ferries.  There has been some interes-  - ting variety of work experiences  in Kraus's work record. Turning  his back on his father's towing  business he went to work in the  woods   when   he   quit   school.  Bay to be  developed  Gibsons Village Council heard  a report from planning consultant  R. Buchan concerning the proposed development of the Bay  area in Gibsons. Buchan recommended that an informal public,  meeting be held in the near future  to air the proposal and test public  reaction.  The project involves the land in  the Bay adjacent to the Esso Marina and foresees the development of a motor hotel of eighteen  units at the waterfront. Behind  the motor hotel would be a twenty  unit apartment hotel with underground parking facilities. Additional parking might be available on land directly across from  the Post Office on which developer Klassen has an option.  The projected development is  the brainchild of a group calling  itself Gibsons Harbour Lodge Ltd,  of which Klassen is a member.  Klassen said that the development should indude a swimming  pool, indoor, and good quality  tennis courts. "If tourists are to  be invited here, services must be  provided," said Klassen. The  tennis courts and swimming pool  will be for the use of guests or  residents ofthe lodge only.  The original set of plans for the  development were first pre se nted  to council in 1973 but financing  problerris then halted the project.  The height of the proposed buildings would be approximately  thirty-five feet. In the apartment  hotel segment of the project the  apartments would be one-bedroom, adult-oriented accomodation.  Klassen said thathe hoped that  these apartments would be suitable for senior citizens who had  had to give up their property but  still wanted to live within easy  reach of the Post Office and the  stores. He estimated that the  rents would be in the neighbourhood of $250 per month.  Changes in the concepts as  pictured in these pages are still  possible. At the moment the  council Would have to re-zone the  area tourist-commercial.  |# *&0 4m* 4f? iJfe ^f SlC 4t* ^|C Sfe dfe 4mt 2km�� Slfi lm\m�� *fc  Laura   Secord   Pastilles,   Hard  CandlM,Honey    and    Menthol  Drops,    Peppermints,    Butter-  scothc just received.  MISS BEE'S, SECHELT.  In 1952 he was only one of three  hooktenders in B.C. under the  age of twenty-five - he himself'  was only twenty-one at the time.  After his stint in the woods,  Kraus worked for five years as an  ironworker building bridges.  The crew he had been working  with previously were killed in  the collapse of the Second Narrows Bridge in 1955.  Kraus started with the Roberts  Creek Fire Department two weeks  after it was formed sixteen years  ago. He has been the Fire Chief  for five years.  Kraus' place in Roberts  Creek has mountains of scrapped  cars out the back as an offshoot  of his towing business. He explains that in the recycling of  old cars they shred them into  cubes which makes it easier  for them to separate the different  metals. "But up here the ferry  rates make it uneconomical for  me to send these cars to town.",  said Kraus.  ' On the subject of his work in  attending at traffic accidents  and often  helping to free the  victims, Kraus explains that when  he was in his teens in the Lake  Cowichan area he had an accident  while riding a Harley motorcycle.  He suffered a broken jaw and a  fractured skull. The Kinsmen  Volunteer Ambulance rushed him  to hospital and his life was  saved.  "I guess maybe I'm trying to  repay them or something like  that," says Kraus. Speaking of  the actual extrication of victims _  from the accidents Kraus says,  "It bothers me a lot, especially  when it's somebody I know,  you'd have to be a different  type of person for it not to affect  you."  Kraus lives in Roberts Creek  with his wife and five children,  four boys and one girl. When first  contacted by the Coast News  with the view to doing this story,  he expressed surprise. "I'm just  an ordinary guy," he said. Maybe  so, but an ordinary guy who in  his work as volunteer fire chief  and answering traffice accident  calls performs a valuable service  and makes real contributions  to his community.

Every chance  he gets he is up at four am and  headed out towards the deep  blue to spend the day waiting  for the fish to bite.  So far he's been quite successful and we have a freezer full of  salmon to prove H. The other day  it was especially exciting when  he brought home a real prize,  twenty one arid one half/pounds  worth. I was impressed. Here on  the Sunshine Coast is the first  time that I have ever tasted fresh  salmon. It's reputation is well  deserved. '  ���    -'  One day my son and I, got  talked into going out on the brine.  We trudged down to the pier,  and sailed off into the cold dark  morning. It really is peaceful  out on the ocean, I can see why  my husband is drawn to it. You  forget' all your cares out on the  sea, and the hours fly by.  For the first few hours, the sea  /was calm and placid, then it  began to get choppy. It was a  light chop, but enough to get my  poor boy. He started feeling  worse and worse, and there is  not much you can do for seasickness in a small boat. After  a while the billows started getting  to me as well. The old salt said  that we would go in after he  caught one more fish, he had two  already;  Someone was watching over us  because it wasn't long until he  snagged another one and we  headed for shore. People who  never get seasick have no appreciation for us poor slobs who do.  To them it's just a joke, to us it  is a sick joke if anything.  If you add up the cost of the  boat, poles, line, reds, and all the.  other    paraphenefia    that    my  husband has acquired in order to  catch   these   creatures   of  the  deep,   we   are   eating   mighty  expensive fish.  I'm not complaining, fishing is  a source of great pleasure for  my husband, and when he's  happy the whole house is happier.  I've heard of golf widows, I  guess that I'm a fish widow.  My role is to make sure that  the sink is clean when the fish  and the fisherman comes home.  Fresh salmon is. such a taste  treat, and the smile on my dear  mate's face makes everything :  worthwhile.  I know that I will have to go out  fishing again soon, and I really  enjoy being out, as long as the  sea is calm. I will have to make a  deal with my husband that if  the water gets rough he will return to shore fish or ho fish. I'll  have to think about how to put  that request, he isn't one for  giving into the sea and I don't  want to sound like a fishwife.  Two years ago, a group of people interested in music of the sixteenth century got together and  started a group they called the  Sunshine Coast Madrigal Singers; They approached their singing in a serious manner, attempting to reproduce the .printed  manuscript in as authentic a  vocal style as possible.  The group began with eight  singers - two each of soprano,  contralto, tenor and bass. They  sang'all their music a capella  (unaccompanied) as it had been  written and, whenever possible,  from memory. '  Now, two years later, the group  has a new name - the Raincoast  Madrigal Singers and has also .  changed some of its personnel,  but the group continues with the  same purpose and standards it  had originally.  During these past years, the  ^Singers have performed in public  on many occasions -most recently  at the series of Baroque Concerts  in December 1975, and at the  Renaissance Fair in Courtenay  in June of this year.  As they prepare to start another year of learning and performing music for the love of music, the group is facing a serious  problem. At present, we have  three sopranos, two contraltos  and two tenors. We urgently require at least one bass and possibly a mezzo soprano.  Anyone interested in joining  the Raincoast Madrigal Singers  can contact Alexis Davison  at 885-2102 after 6 p.m. weekdays  or anytime during the weekend.  we'll teach  to over 10,00d Canadians thisyear  SHOULD ONE OF THEM BE YOU?

Sunshine Coast News, September 14,1976  Tennis courts  show neglect  It has become more and more  evident that no group is. taking responsibility for the maintenance  of the Dougal Park tennis courts.  In fact for some time now their  condition has been quickly approaching a situation where use  of the courts would soon be impossible.  Nets are .often seen on the  ground or supported by some very makeshift apparatus. The  backboard has been reduced to  half its original size and' the  nets are succumbing to inevitable weathering. The- entiyways  never did have a system for  keeping the gates closed and wayward balls contained.  Tired    of   this   situation    of  neglect, one private citizen who  wishes to remain anonymous  has taken it upon himself to improve things to the point where  the nets can again be properly  supported and adjusted. On his  own initiative this man has purchased and attached four turn-  buckles to the ends of the nets.  The system, he admits, is still not  right but at least it's playable-.  This citizen was involved in  the construction of the original  cement court and says he does not  mind making the effort but wonders -why there is no plan for  maintenance. "Have we decided  it is cheaper to build new rather  than to maintain existing facilities?" he asks.  HMCS-Quadra training  Resource meeting  The Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society invites  community participation in a general meeting to be held Wednesday.

Doubleday Canada Ltd.  208  p.   $7.95 c.  August,   1976  The Gordons are co-authors of  nineteen novels, most prominently tales of the adventures of a  very famous cat, Damn Cat Randall, hero of Catnapped and  That Dam Cat which was made  into a movie by Walt Disney  and which has charmed millions  of people throughout the world.  Ordeal is the story of the crash  of a Cessna 172, piloted by a  young woman, Sandra (Sandy)  Wilcox.

But of course, Ordeal is more  than just that. The Gordons are  very adept at characterization;  they use well-chosen incidents to  introduce the reader to the characters. You learn ofthe emotional  problems facing Sandy following  the dissolution of her engagement  to a young engineer, her ties to  the Navajo nation, and her concern for the future of these native people. The Gordons also  introduce the reader to Sandy's  passenger on that fateful flight.a  buyer speculating in traditional  Navajo jewelry and who incautiously is carrying half a million  dollars in cash with him. Finally,  you are introduced to a trio of  amoral young people who will  stop at nothing to get the half million and the courageous law  enforcement personnel who attempt to rescue Sandy after the  crash.  This book is not simply an excellent tale of adventure and intrigue; it is also a social commentary on the plight of the Navajo  nation. Throughout the book, the  Gordons have successfully shown  the relationship between the  crash incident and the actuality  of life among the Navajo people.

Your intellect is good, you'll find that soft  spoken words are more impressive than harsh ones.  TAURUS - April 21 to May 21  This coming weekend will mark  the entrance of the sun into your  birth chart. There'll be lots of  activity most beneficial to you. A  child born in Taurus this year may  turn out to be a genius.  GEMINI - May 22 to June 21  "Business as usual" is the order  of the day for Gemini right now.  This week might prove to be a  little "hum-drum." This is all for  the best, as "overactivity" could  be rather unwise.  CANCER - June 22 to July 22  The last half of next week may be  much better than the first half as  the moon, your ruler, starting  today is in a very touchy aspect.  By next Monday and Tuesday it  will be in a very GOOD position.  LEO   -   July   23   to   August   23  There just could be a "clash" or  argument with others at this time,  but you can be certain that you  hold all the cards. Be sincere and  fair in all business dealings.  VIRGO - August 24 to Sept. 22  Much is to be gained for you at  this time. There might be a slight  agrument occur in domestic  affairs, which you will be the  centre of. but just play it 'cool'  and vou will come out ahead.  LIBRA ��� Sept 23 to Ocotber 23  Your ruling planet! Venus, is not  able to help you much at this  time. This is NOT and I repeat.  NOT a good time to start "new  ventures." By the end of next  month things should be MUCH  better.  SCORPIO ��� Oct. 24 to Nov. 22  A period of "new starts" could be  in the wind for all Scorpio  persons. This is not a "short-  term" project, and if it can not  stand the test of time, it should be  looked upon with caution.  SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 23 - Dec. 21  The planets are certainly in your  favour at this time. You are going  to be in for a great surprise  shortly and this surprise will  make up for a long time. Things  are going to be exceptionally good  for you in the next short while.  CAPRICORN - Dec. 22 to Jan. 20  The moon, passing through your  sign at this time may cause you  undue concern over family or  business matters.This will soon  pass, but it can be midly upsetting.  AQUARIUS - Jan. 21 to Feb. 18  If you have been trying in the past  to achieve something that seemed  impossible, now is an excellent  time to 'try. try again.' The zodiac-  will give you much support.  PISCES - Feb. 19 to Mar. 20  A great deal of activity is going on  in the sign of Pisces at this time.  This could possibly involve some  luck. You may have to look long  and deep for this "luck" but it's  there.

This brings to  viewers of both 'It Is Written' and  'Search' telecasts and Sunshine  Coasts residents generally to  attend-in their own community a  seminar of the type recently conducted at the Bayshore Inn in  Vancouver and at the Empress  Hotel in Victoria.  "Nothing in my life-long ministry," said Vandeman, "hasbeen  so rewarding as participating in  these seminars and nothing has  been so deeply appreciated by all  who have attended in the past few  months." Conducting the local  programme on September 26th  will be Walter Rogers and Herb  Carson, directors of the programme for B.C.  On the schedule will be eight  full hours of fascinating and deeply satisfying bible study discussion.

Take for  instance little known Kinuseo  Falls. The turbulent waters ofthe  Murray River in the northern  rtocky Mountain foothills of Ifv  Peace River District churn V> a  boil then plummet 225 feci (70  metres: over the dropoff with  such tremendous power that they  froth up further cataracts of spray  for a considerable distance downstream.  From the trail along the top of  the waterfall you see jnly a rolling crest of loam. T<. better the  view, you must descent the steep  track along the falls, teeter a-  ross a shale slide then clamber  along the bank downstream.  Below the falls, the steeply can-  yoned river divides around some  picturesque islands then flows  northward to the Pine and eventually the Peace. Not yet is its  wilderness spoiled by Niagaralike towns, souvenir stands and  floodlighting. Some day soon  Kinuseo's remote wilderness may  be changed by the mining of extensive coal deposits in the near  by Quintette Mountains. Soon  instant towns may emerge from  the bush and the northern lights  give way to electric lights.  But right now the traveller can  still discover for himself the Kinuseo as it was to the pioneers of  the Peace River country who built  a road to it in the Depression  years. Most were farmers who  wanted to ship their goods to /an-  couver markets by a route half the  distance of the 1400 mile (2250  kilometre)      journey       through  Edmonton. Alberta, and on to  /ancouver. The Alaska Highway  would not exist until 1942 and the  Hart Highway was not built  through Chetwynd until 1952.  But back in 1936 a group of farmers, led by Alex Monkman,  cowboy, miner and storekeeper,  was inspired to build a coast outlet road through the Monkman  Pass. It would join Grande  Prairie in the east with Hansard  near Prince George in the west. It  would follow an Indian trail that  had been used for 300 years.  By the end of 1939 Monkman  Pass trail blazers had forged 80  miles (130 kilometres) of the necessary 132 miles (210 kilometres)  from Beaverlodge and Rio Grande  on the British Columbia/Alberta  border along the Redwillow River to the Murray River and Kinuseo Falls. With the outbreak of  World War Two and the death of  Alex Monkman in 1941. the project died. And when the west  coast outlet was eventually built  it did not pass through Kinuseo  Falls at all.  However, the story behind  these pioneers' 'do it yourself at-  temps to build a highway is a fascinating one. In the Depression  years there was little other work  and less money. What was available was plenty of labour and  good will to meet the challenge.  The settlers treated road construction in holiday spirit.  Support came in various ways.  Live geese, sheaves of wheat,  bags of beets and carrots were donated. Money was raised by holding magician shows, dances and  bonspiels. Farmers pledged receipts from acres of their grain. A  record entitled The Song of the  Monkman Trail was released.  But it was all to no avail.  Close to the top of the falls now  the traveller can still see the remains of cabins' that were built  in 1939 as part of a grandiose plan  to attract tourists to the area.  To reach the Kinuseo Falls today you may travel by riverboat  from Taylor or from East Pine.  Or you may drive the road route  for 96 miles (155 kilometres)  along the Boundary and Kinuseo-  Redwillow gravel road south of  Tupper and Dawson Creek.  Side trips may be taken on the  way to Swan Lake Provincial Park  or One Island Luke and Kelly  Lake and the Stoney Lake Ranger  Station.  Hikers can drive five miles  (8 kilometres) in from the Denni-  son Mines Road over the Quintette Mountain loop to find beautiful meadows above timberlinc.  Photographers will find plenty of  caribou, ptarmigan and grizzly  bear for their camera subjects,  as well as acres of alpine wild-  flowers.  Watch carefully at forks in the  road for fingerboards pointing out  the route to the falls and check  with the government agent at  Dawson Creek for maps and up-  to-the-minute advice on road conditions.  The route to Kinuseo may be  remote and the road rugged but  perhaps the most unexpected  sights are not the viewpoints and  the wildlife but the signs saying  'TOILETS'. Several have been  constructed by the Forest Service  who now maintain this historic  but still wilderness road to adventure.  (This Roam at Home article is  one of a series provided by the  Department of Recreation and  Travel Industry)  Foods Feature  Broccoli flowerlets  Take home a good-looking head  of broccoli from your market  this week and treat yourself to  some good fall eating. Because  broccoli is a member of the cabbage family, it makes particularly  good eating right now!  Pick a head that'sfree from wilted leaves, with tender, firm  stalks and compact bud clusters  of dark purplish or sage green,  depending on the variety. Buy  about two pounds for six servings, refrigerate in a perforated plastic bag and use within  three days. Wash well under running water. Trim coarse leaves  and woody stems, cut lengthwise  in serving size pieces and make 2  or 3 cuts part way up thick stalks.  The most usual method of cooking broccoli is to boil it. Place  serving-size pieces upright, or on  slices of stalks, in a saucepan in  one inch of boiling water. Sprinkle with salt, cover and return to  boil. Reduce heat and boil gently  until stalk is just tender, 8  to 10 minutes for early varieties  and 10 to 15 minutesfor others.  Panning is another simple way  of cooking broccoli. Leave the  heads in small flowerlets and cut  the stems in '/* inch diagonal  slices. For six servings, melt V*  cup of butter in a large heavy fry-  pan, add the vegetable, sprinkle  with V* teaspoon of salt. Cover,  heat quickly to form steam,  then reduce heat and cook gently  about 18 minutes. Shake or stir  quickly to avoid sticking.  Pressure cooking is the quickest method to follow. Broccoli  pieces of 1 to 1 Vi inches in diame  ter will cook in VA minutes at 15  pounds pressure. You need only  use Vi cup of water. For best  results follow the manafacturer's  directions carefully.  Many seasonings and flavors  are compatible with broccoli  such as grated cheese; sour  cream; mayonnaise mixed with  lemon juice and paprika; or clear  French dressing.  In any case, cook only until just  tender and serve promptly.  Good-looking broccoli has an attractive bright green color and  pleasant flavor. Food Advisory  Services, Agriculture Canada,  suggest a few diferent ways of  serving broccoli with flair. Dress  it up with any cheese sauce, or  serve 'Broccoli Vinaigrette'.  BROCCOLI SOUFFLE  3 tablespoons butter, melted  Va cup flour  Va teaspoon white pepper  1 cup milk  Vi  cup grated white cheddar  cheese  1 cup chopped cooked broccoli  1 cup chopped cooked ham  4 beaten egg yolks  4 egg whites  .Blend butter, flour and pepper.  Gradually add milk. Stir and cook  until smooth and thick. Add  cheese and stir until melted.  Combine broccoli, ham and egg  yolks. Add sauce to broccoli  mixture and combine. Beat egg  whites until stiff but not dry.  Fold broccoli mixture into egg  whites. Turn into ungreased  souffle or baking dish. Bake at  325 F until knife inserted in centre comes out clean (55 to 60 minutes). Serve immediately.  6 servings.  BROCCOLI VINAIGRETIE  1 Vi pounds broccoli  Vi cup of oil  Vi teaspoon salt  1 teaspoon sugar  Vi teaspoon dry mustard  Va teaspoon paprika  Vi cup vinegar  Cut broccoli in 1 inch pieces.  Cook in boiling salted water until tender (8 to 10 minutes).  Combine remaining ingedients.  Blend Well. Pour over broccoli.
