Now  it would appear that the Regional Board is moving towards  the conviction that a referendum is the only logical way  for Sechelt to get its sewers. Not to do so is just too constricting on -the financial flexibility of the region as is  explained elsewhere on these pages.  The Coast News cannot but be gratified to find that  events seem to be moving in a direction which prove its  earlier concern justified. What remains something of a  mystery is why the Sechelt Council has been so adamantly  opposed to referendum these months while initially apparently supporting it. It would seem that there was on  the part of the Village Council in Sechelt a failure of faith  in the Democratic processes, they should be serving. If  the sewer system is essential, as it probably is, no good  purpose has been served by delaying it for months because elected representatives wanted to avoid consulting  the people they serve.  October 14th day oi protest  The day of protest called by the  Canadian Labour Congress for  October 14th to protest the implementations of the Anti-Inflation Board is meeting with a  mixed reaction from local organized workers.  The members of the Canadian  Paper Workers Union, Local  1119, will observe the day of protest. Local President Ron McPhedran said, "People here are  very conscious of the inequities  of the Anti-Inflation Board".  When the call came from the  C.L.C. two special meetings were  held with a resulting strike vote  in favour of the protest of 77%.  McPhedran pointed out that  Howe Sound Pulp is a company  which sells its product overseas  and is not controlled by the A.I.B.  "Our   Wages   are  controlled",  said McPhedran, ."but land  prices, car insurance costs, ferry  fares, food prices and mortgage  rates are not controlled and continue to skyrocket. The results  of the Anti-Inflation Board's  actions are to reduce the standard  of living of Canadian workers and  eliminate the free bargaining process which has been built over  decades."  In contrast to the stand taken  by the Mill workers, the Sechelt  Teachers Association voted  against withdrawing their services on October 14th. A press  release from the S.T.A. dated  October 8th stated "At a special  general meeting of the Sechelt,  Teachers' Association, Thursday,  October 7th, seventy-seven load  teachers re-affirmed their support  for the October 14th C.L.C.

The teachers agreed to hold a meeting after  school on that day to discuss the  possible wage roll-back and the  progress of local negotiations. As  well, advertisements will be  placed in all the local papers  which will point out.the opposition of the Sechelt Teachers'.  Association to .the inequities cf  the And-Inflation Board.''  The situation with respect to  the workers at the B. C. Ferries  is even more confused. The feny  workers belong to the' B. C. Government Employees Union -  Marine Branch. The licenced  workers, captains, engineers,  mates, etc. form a separate  ' Licensed Branch of the Union and  are understood to have voted  against joining the day of protest.  The unlicensed workers, on the  other hand, are said to be in  favour of the Day of Protest. It  is unclear what this will mean in  terms of ferry service on October  14th but a spokesman for the  unlicensed workers indicated that  it was his opinion that the boats  would not run.  The situation at St. Mary's  Hospital in Sechelt is likewise  obscure. Phyllis Heddon, President of the Hospital Employees  Union, had just returned from the  Hospital Workers Convention  held last week at the Holiday Inn,  711 West Broadway, and said that  the convention had heard an address from Dr. Scott Wallace,  head of the provincial Conservative Party, in which he urged the  hospital workers not to stage a  full day's protest. President  Heddon said that she had not had  adequate time to consult with the  members of her Local but said  that placards were readied for  some form of supportive demonstration.  The spokesman for the nurses  at St. Mary's refused to comment  when contacted and no information is available concerning then-  attitude to the protest against the  Anti-Inflation Board.  The long drawn-out debate about the installation of a sewer system  in Sechelt may be at last moving towards resolution. It was learned  last weekend that Public Utilities Commission Chairman Peter Hoemberg will make a motion at the Regional Board meeting to be" held on  Friday, October 15th, to the effect that the question of the Sechelt  sewers must go to referendum.  Hoemberg explained that the  SCRD, the financiers of the project had approached the sewer  question under Chapter 2SS cf'  the Municipal Act,  Sectin. 766,  Sub-section 4b.   Under this subsection the Regional District can  proceed with individual projects  to a total, of two mills added to  the tax load, of the specified area  up to an aggregate of three mills  for all functions within the entire  Sunshine Coast Regional District.  Hoemberg  said that the installation of the  sewer system  under   this   sub-section   would  mean  that 2.8  mills  allowable  would already be used up.  "Ihe  ' village council and the regional  board have other functions which  require   co-operation  and joint  action.    If the Sechelt Council  squeezes the  sewer project in  under  Sub-section 4b it limits  future capabilities and leaves us  no   room   to   negotiate",' said  Hoemberg. .  If the sewer project goes forward under Section 766, Subsection 4 which calls for the referendum approach, it would allow  the Village Council and the Regional Board the flexibility and -  manoeuvrability to co-operate  on other functions within the  three-mill range.  Mayor Harold Nelson of  Sechelt, when contacted, said  that he had not heard anything  of Hoemberg's intentions and  could make no comment. Alderman Dennis Shuttleworth, who  has been pressing for a referendum, said that he thought that  Hoemberg's was an excellent  decision. "A referendum tied in  with the forthcoming elections  will make for efficiency and  assure the public that true democratic procedures are being followed. It will give the council  an unquestionable mandate from  the public for whatever action is  . taken", said Alderman Shuttle-  worth.  Shuttleworth pointed out that  at a council meeting held on -  May 5th, '*. 1976, Alderman Morgan Thompson whle  presenting a committee report  had told the council that May 29th  1976 had been tentatively set for  a referendum on the sewer installation. "The Chamber of  Commerce will phone around  and encourage everyone to vote",  Thompson had said to council on  May 5th.  - Shuttleworth pointed out that  by subsequently refusing to go to  referendum the Sechelt Village  Council had effectively delayed  the start of work on the sewerpro-  ject by almost six months. "If  they had gone to referendum on  May 29th as originally stated,"  said Shuttleworth, "the project  could have been well started by  this time." .,  Regional Board Chairman John  McNevin said that he could have  no comment on the matter 'until  such time as the Regional Board  had discussed it. McNevin  questioned the timing ofthe release of information on the impending motion, to the press.  TALENT SEARCH  'Dickens' Christinas Carol'  has been chosen to be presented  by the students of Elphinstone  High School in conjunction with  members of the community.  Ken Dalgleish and Geoff  Madoc-Jones are working toward  discovering the abilities throughout School and Community that  might work to create a musical  version of this well known Christmas, story.  The first meeting to determine  a 'talent pool' is scheduled for  Thurs. Oct. 14th at 7:30, Room  119, Elphinstone High School.  Village pub rezoning debate  A packed Municipal office last  Thursday night heard the presentation by MRT Holdings, Ltd.  ���-in-'favbur of" By-law- -SSSrwinch-  would allow - the reaming required before they could go ahead  with the transformation of old  Doc Inglis' house into a village  pub. Spokesman for MRT Holdings was Terry Karkabe. Local  man Fred Inglis spoke against  the by-law.  Inglis stated that the MIR  would not get a Liquor licence for  the proposed pub because they  were within the one mile limit  from another such-establishment.  "Alterations to the old house  should not be allowed before  MTR is granted a liquor license."  Inglis said that there is no crying  need for another pub in the village apart from the developers,  '-'���them*rives^���*'���'���-''���''"���-���:-''������������;''-������"':'"';"',��� "*���  Terry   Karkabe  stressed   the  care that MTR had taken to ensure a quality pub which would be  in keeping with the atmosphere  . of the period in which the house  was built.  ��� Among several people who  spoke in favour of the projected  pub was Earl Carter who described himself as a Historical  Advisor for Museum Societies  and felt that the Inglis family  should be delighted with the  quality approach taken by MRT  Holdings. Local man, Herb  Craig, paid tribute to the up  grading of the Dogwood Cafe  facilities since they, were taken  over by MRT and expressed confidence' and full support for the  pub enterprise.  Doctor Hugh Inglis and his  brother Jack Inglis, sons of the  house's builder, joined Fred  Inglis in expressing opposition.  Jack Inglis said "I suppose  change is inevitable but it will  be a sad day for. me when the  younger people finally take  over."  Mayor Larry Labonte thanked  both groups for their presentations. "We have to make a  decision and we are ready",  he said.  After twenty-five years at Vott  Mellon with Howe Sound Pulp,-  Pat Quarry of Gibsons retired last  week. Pat went to work in the  mill in April 1951. He worked  in various capacities around the  mill, winding up his career as  Stores counterman.  When Pat first went to work at  the mill he travelled by water  from   Horseshoe  Bay   to   Port  Mellon, the journey taking about  an hour. Subsequently he  lived in Port Mellon for ten years  before building himself a house in  Gibsons. During the twenty-  five and half years Pat worked at  Port Mellon he saw the production increase from one hundred and twenty-five tons per day  to six hundred tons per day.  Pat's is a voluntary retirement.  At age sixty-one he represents  the youngest man ever to retire  from the Port Mellon facility. He  wishes to pay tribute to the many  fine people he worked with at  the mill and to thank them for  their generous gift. Particularly  did Pat wish to express his thanks  and appreciation to the people he  will be unable to see personally  before leaving to take up residence in Windsor, Ontario.  iDeiivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday  ikaHHaHMBSBHHSaasaBBHHSSBSBHIBaaS^^ TpiTn*���HJIHUIH l��i  Coast News, October 12,1976  Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.

Dixon  Recreation  No one should have expected the joint  funding program for recreation facilities  through the district to have an easy time  of it despite the high hopes expressed for  it at the recent joint School Board-Regional Board meeting. As it stands now  the Sechelt Council have accepted the  proposal in principle and the Gibsons  Council have tabled it.  Gibsons Council feels that it is already  too far committed- in its own plans to  jeopardise them and their position is  understandable given the crying need in  the village for recreational facilities,  particularly for the young. In addition the  Roberts Creek School site is not suitable  for much in the way of recreational additions to be added there.  The fact remains, however, that the  concept is a good one and deserves  support. It enables the taxpayers to be  assured that tax money rased for recreational facilities will be distributed  ' evenly throughout the area of taxation.  When it was first mooted at the Joint  Meeting it was understood dearly by the  proponents of the scheme that it was the  principle of co-operation that was being  advanced and that there would be individual areas where the local situation  would require separate examination and  discussion. _.  With this in mind the decision of the  Gibsons Council to table the recommendation made by Alderman Metzler  that they join in the scheme should be  seen in perspective as being a discussion  point and not a major setback. Gibsons  Council is probably justified in their  actions.  The fact remains, however, that we of  this region are more likely to achieve  adequate recreational facilities which  have largely eluded us if there is some  measure of co-operation among the  various Boards and Councils whose  responsibility it is to govern. If we can  avoid duplication of effort and construction the region as a whole can only  benefit.  ' The Pender Harbour situation, however, does add a little urgency to the  matter. The school there mist be replaced and the people of the area are willing to pay whatever extra is required  above the allowed maximum to ensure  that within the school to be built will be  included adequate recreational facilities  for the entire community. Construction  ofthe school cannot be long delayed and  the urgency of this individual situation  and the obvious value of the joint approach makes it imperative that the  various representatives of local government should remove any obstacles to the  implementation of a co-operative program with a minimum delay.  If Tahsis can manage to have a full-  time Recreational Director to co-ordinate  recreational facilities throughout its  area, surely the Sunshine Coast should  be capable of it too.  Fish farm  Attention is drawn to the fine letter  from J. Hind Smith which appears in  our Letters to the Editor column concerning the closing of the fish farm run  by Alan Meneely in Pender Harbour. It  would indeed seem sadly ironic that the  Fisheries Department is now encouraging  private fish farms when Alan Meneely  has been forced to suspend his operations  through lack of co-operation from the  very department which now professes to,  be encouraging his type of enterprise.  The Fisheries Department would seem to  owe some kind of an explanation to Alan  Meneely and the people of this region.  Progress  Hold on now! The Coast News does not  wish to seem to be standing against  progress but surely we have a right to  ask what it is. The poet E. E. Cummings  said "Progress is a comfortable disease".  What occasions these fleeting thoughts  is   a   story   which   appeared   recently  quoting Regional Board Chairman John  McNevin on his return from a conference  to discuss the future of Howe Sound.  McNevin is quoted as saying that we are  in danger of becoming, without industry,  a "poor, quaint backwater of summer  homes and dusty roads".    If industry  moves into Howe Sound, we are informed  "the Sunshine Coast will be1 a wealthy  growing community with a land link to  Vancouver". Is it too terribly reactionary  to wonder if most of us are.not here because we wished to avoid the pace of the  industrial monster? Do we want a four-  lane highway to swish over to Vancouver,  lined no doubt with motels and used car  lots? What is this bland assumption that  we w;ant to be like Vancouver when we  grow up? Is this the majority feeling of  the people McNevin represents? Is  bigness and wealth the only definition of  progress?  .from the files of Coast New*  5 YEARSAGO  Objecting to last weeks' news story:  that Aldermen have expressed themselves privatly as being not too happy  with Mayor Peterson's actions, Aid.  Mandelkau asked for clarifications by the  Editor of the Coast News.  The Mayor also complained of incorrect  news reporting in the Coast News.   The,  Editor asked for specific instances, but  the Mayor was unable to supply any.  10 YEARS AGO  At a meeting of the Regional Board  held at Sechelt, a proposal made by Mr.  C. Woodward to extend the region to  include the rural area of the Powell  River District was turned down.  Gibsons Kinsmen are helping finance  the Centennial swimming pool and made  their first sale of light bulbs. A pack of  6 bulbs goes for $1.50.  15 YEARS AGO  Sleepwalking about 1:00 am. Friday  resulted in Detective W. R. Millar of  Vancouver City Police force, falling from  his summer-home veranda an Hill Crest  Avenue. Dr. Hugh Inglis attended to  broken ribs and a damaged wrist.  '  20 YEARS AGO  By popular request, Gibsons Theatre is  playing a return engagement of The  Little Kidnappers, an unusual story set  in the outlands of Nova Scotia.  The Sechelt Fire Brigade had a rush  call on Sunday morning, Oct. 7.  Four firemen with the truck and a long  ladder rescued a kitten which had flashed  quickly up a telephone pole.  25 YEARS AGO  Traffic in the Village of Gibsons is  becoming more and more of a problem for  Council and less one for the law. Traffic  regulations here are a farce.  A letter from the R.C.M.P. (Gibsons)  requesting permission to address commissioners on the tangled condition of  traffic regulations in Gibsons, was turned  down by the Village Fatherswho thought  the whole matter was too involved.

Let  me hasten to add that I mean old  times only in my brief recollection. I wish sometimes that  I'd been born here and grownup  here and gone fishing at an early  age and scrambled among the  blackberries and up the hills  and climbed the trees but the  fact is that I've only lived here for  seven years and old times for me  is only five or six years ago.  Five or six years ago there was  a little man who worked for a  newspaper out of the little shop  on   Cowrie   Street   in   Sechelt.  He was a man remarkable only-,  for the unbridled fashion in which  he filled his pages with bigotry  and vituperation.   Twice in my  recollection he wrote editorials  calling for mob justice, vigilante  '   marches presumable in the dead  of the night. Indians and hippies  were his targets on those particular occasions.    Sometimes it  was an imaginary Red Menace.  He saw a communist under every  bed.  His venom went everywhere  his fear went. He was one of  those who did not wrestle with his  own darkness but projected it out  and saw it in his fellows and was  afraid and very nasty. Finally,  after much too long a time he  went away, back to South Africa  they say, where no doubt he  sweats and fears with his gun  under his pillow and calls for  harsher measures against the  blacks.  Now-from the same little office  comes a particularly nasty, superficial little piece about die problems at the B. C. Penitentiary.  I'm not going to pretend that I  have any answer for the current  tragic dilemma in Canadian  prisons. I've never been there  and I hope never to go, but there  are books and articles that one  can read. There's a splendid  short book called Prison Doctor  by Dr. Guy Richmond who was  the doctor at Oakalla from 1952 to  1969. There was a fine article by  the B. C. poet Andreas Schroeder  about conditions inside-where he  has been spending three years,  which appeared in a recent  issue of the Province's Saturday  Magazine. These are recommen-  dable reading for all and certainly  for those who would promulgate  opinions about the penal system.  Here's a man calling for other  men to be whipped and regretting  that they cannot be killed.  Doesn't he know that violence  begets violence and brutality  begets brutality? Has it not occurred to him that Jesus Christ  and Mahatma Ghandi, to name  just two, were not simpering  fools or 'bleeding hearts' when  they   advocated   non  violence?  musings from burnside     Commentary  Everytime in the last few years a  politician or, it seems, a newspaperman   wants   some   facile  popularity the cry goes out for  more law and order and rigid enforcing.   Dick Nixon was a past  master of the tactic and we all  know how deep his reverence for  the law went. It seems to me to  be time that someone stated the  obvious.  Human society, that is  living  close  together  in . great  numbers, is only possible because  the vast majority of the species  is decent and usually non-aggressive.     When I drive home  at  night I get there safely not because of the traffic laws or because of the vigilance ofthe local  constabulary   but   because   the,  other guys coming down the road.  want to get home too and keep to  their side of the road. Every day  we depend on each other to be  decent so that we can get home.  Every day we get home.,  When I was a boy in Scottish  schools every teacher carried a  length of thick leather with which  to belabour the unco-operative.  We used to compete to see who  could get it more often. I was  a teacher for fifteen years in  Canadian schools and I never  strapped a student nor threatened  one with physical violence. I  was never threatened with physical violence in fifteen years  either.  As for capital punishment, anyone with enough interest to inform themselves would know that  in those countries where the  death sentence has been abolished there has been no cones-  ponding increase in the number  ��� of murders. Quite amply there is  no justification for the dreadful,  drawn-out - business of legal  murder. It does not serve as a  deterrent and sometimes the  wrong man gets- killed. In the  famous Christie case in England a  man called Evans was hanged in  1954 for the murder of his wife.  One year later they found eight  bodies or parts of bodies in the  house of his neighbour John  Christie who then admitted that  he had been responsible for the  death of Evans wife too. One  such mistake is too many. Death  is irreversible.  Many of the men inside the  prison walls are brutafts&l and  hopeless. . How; tpv deal, with  society's law-breakers is a. complex and vexing problem. It  serves no worthwhile cause to  spew out such trite and nasty  superficialities as appeared in  the local press last week.  Where the Cowrie Street  piece differs from Wheeler's is  in its lack of either real passion  or conviction. The other little  man passionately believed his  own poison. Reading this latest,  one feels.that it is being written  because the writer thinks it will  find a ready acceptance. As such  it is both tasteless and.cynical  and a slur on the sensitivity and  the intelligence' cf our communities.  To some degree all of us are  "strangers and afraid in a wodd  we never made". To appeal to  such fears for some base purpose  of one's own is a contemptible  performance, sir.  All for nought  The Sechelt sewer controversy  may be finally moving towards its  logical conclusion. The Sunshine  Coast Regional District wiD be  voting on a motion to put forward  by   Public   Utilities   Committee  Chairman   Peter   Hoemberg  at  this Friday nights meeting, and  if this motion whould prove successful, as expected, die people  of the Sechelt Sewer Specified  Area will at last be granted an  opportunity to make their opinion known in conjunction with this  , November's Municipal Elections.  Through their own fear of going  to the people, the Sechelt Council  has now left themselves in the  position of defending not only  the  referendum but their own  actions in  connection with the  handling   of  the  entire   sewer  question as well.   The two seats  up for grabs this November, now  belong    to    Aldermen    Dennis  Shuttleworth and Frank Leitner.  Shuttleworth, the only member  of the council to actively oppose  the   sewer  without  referendum  decision   will   not   be   running  again. The candidates seeking to  pick up the vacant seats include  Froede     Jorgenson,      Hayden  Killam and of course Leitner himself.     Though   all  three  have  shown an active interest in the  community   over   an   extended  period of time, I can't help but  feel that what is needed is a  candidate or two without active  business affiliations within the  Sechelt area. A '.'People's  candidate" is a necessity in a  council such as Sechelt where the  incumbent aldermen have proved  time and time again that they are  only too willing to deal behind  closed doors and the backs of  the people they are supposed to  represent.  If Alderman Morgan Thompson  had stuck behind his original conviction to hold the referendum on  May 29th. the Sechelt sewer  could by now be half built.  Thompson's excuse that the refe- ;  rendum would take too long has  been proved ludicrous and the  faith of the people in the judgement of council has been driven  to a new low.  Now the SCRD has discovered  that should it allow Sechelt  Council to proceed without referendum that in fact there would  not be enough left in reserve to  meet normal every-day street  lighting, cemetery or parks and n  recreation functions.  The months of fighting have all  been for nought. Alderman  Shuttleworth told a council  meeting last spring that "the  honorable way is always the  easiest way", now with the project still not started it is hard to  doubt his logic.  Pender Harbour Perspective  from the book 'Whittlings'  Sortings  by Wendy Skapski  BY Hubert Evans  -t  When I was a little boy in bed with measles  my mother gave me the contents of her button bag to sort.  She said this should keep meoccupied for awhile.  . But so much deciding soon tired me.  So I put all the buttons back into the bag  and just lay down and went to sleep.  Old now, I try to sort the contents of my years;  loves from passions,  regrets from rejoicings,  the symbols from the symbofced,  Samaritan from Pharisee,  self from selfless,  chances taken from chances spurned, 7  all that has made me as I am.  .''������.-. "������  What a mix-up! forget it, I tell myself.; ���  But this is not the same as sorting buttons;  I can't get the rememberingsback into the bag.  And sleep is hard to come by now.  It may still be sunny and warm,  and maybe it's true that only a  few leaves have fallen off the  trees, but from my perspective  as News recipient, few locals  are fooled. It's fall, and the organizing forces are definitely  gearing themselves up for another stab at a scintillatingly  social Pender . Harbour winter.  My response is simple: this week  I feel rather like the exterior of  the Post Office, or maybe the  scotch-taped window at the  I.G.A., and rather than try to  fight it, I will gracefully post the  bulletins and bow out.  Missive No. 1. I quote verbatim from the Community Club  Executive: ,/  "If the Pender Harbour Community Club is to continue operating, there has to be more support  from the residents ofthe area.  The profit from the Thursday  night Bingo provides the main  ' source of income to keep the HaU  operating, but the attendance has  been very poor in September.  People are reminded that the Lottery regulations govern the prizes  that can .be given away, so if  better prizes are wanted, more  people must attend. Everyone  will benefit! ?  The expenses to operate the  vHall-~heat, light, and janitorial  services, averaged about $400. a  month in 1975. Since then these  services have risen so the expenses will be more this year.  The Community Club makes  cash donations to the Minor  Hockey  League,   Little   League  Baseball, Swimming Classes, and  the Annual Fireworks Display.  They also provide the Hall free  of charge for the Play School,  three days a week. The Community Club also sponsors the  Childrens' Christmas Party,  provides the building, heat and  light for the Library.  The proceeds from the Bingo  on Sept. 30 will be donated to  this years Fireworks display.  The Hall is available for rent  at nominal fees, which in many  cases do not even.pay the expenses involved.  It would be appreciated if more  of the people who benefit from  the work of the Community  Club would come out once in a  while and support the Bingo.  With more help, more could be  accomplished. A few people are  giving a lot of time to make a  Hall available for Community  use, and it does cost "money for  upkeep and repairs.       \  There will be a Sale of Xmas  gift items at the Bingo on Oct.  14th, 1976."  Last and perhapsleast, my own  two cents worth:    Prior to the  fire, there was to have been a  Recreational   Games   night   at  the High School.   If anyone is  still interested in playing basketball, volleyball, or floor hockey in  the confines of the Elementary  School gym, phone and leave your  name    and    night    preference'  with the new School Secretary,  Sandra Pears.  The gym may'dot  be your ordinary jock's answer &%  persistent  prayer,  but  it-does '  exist.  K  I Coast News, October 12, 1976.  BBSmmW  Modulars....

Glued  to your set for hours on end every  week. What did people do before  television? Well, they went to  movies more than they do today,  they listened to that box with the  knobs on it called radio, and they  read.  When I was a kid my Grandparents always had the radio on,  now it's the TV. You could do  more while the radb was playing,  anything and everything. I remember my Grandfather pluddng  chickens with Ma Perkins.  A person could use their imagination while listening to doors  opening, horses galloping, people  walking, and all the many things  that we now see in vivid detail on  our living-room screens. You  can't look away from the set, you  might miss something on TV.  Radio had sounds for everything  and you could picture it all in your  mind.  . One of the fondest memories  of my childhood is the warm,  safe, loving feelings that I had  while lying next to the radio as  my mother ironed and we listened  to Boston Blackie, The Green  Hornet, and The Shadow.  I didn't mean to go into a nostalgia trip, but when I start  talking about radio it does seem  like the good old days. It's funny  how one always remembers the  pleasant, good times. I doubt if  the human race could survive  without that capacity.  Now we sit bug eyed staring at  our twenty one, give or take a few  inches, screen. The only time  that we can get up and do anything is during commercials  which are frequent, but of short  duration so that we have to hurry.  A pet peeve of mine, especially,  here in our fringe cable vision  area, is the reception. The snow  can get so bad that it becomes a  blizzard, and the ghosts really do  haunt you, from other channels.  What bothers me most, and it's  usually at a-crucial point in the  program, is when the video totally  goes and the picture becomes ver  tical patterns, and there is absolutely nothing that you can do  to correct it.   If I'm going to be  addicted to something I wooU  like it to be a pleasant experience..  Living    color,    now   there's  another can of worms. We don't  own a color set, but I have had  the displeasure of sitting and  watching  people   with   orange  faces in other peoples homes.  Seldom is a set in adjustment,  and I guess that with cable v&on  that it's practically impossible.  The amazing thing about odor TV  is that everyone sits and stares at  these surrealistic images on die  screen as if they were natural.  We all know that blue grass is  nothing to get excited over.  Regardless of its imperfections  television is here to stay, and we  will be staring at the idiot bos:  until something is invented to  replace it. The new season has  just begun so be sure and catch  all the latest programs. After  ail you don't want to be a boob  when someone is talking about  the tube.  Bill Clark writes ...  From the Back Porch  Pete Svensen an me wus in to  see Missus MacTaggart down at  the Lazy H a wile bade, jest to  make shur she is doin' all rite  since Old Mac died.

Well, sir, she throwd in a  cupple steaks wot jest about fiflt  the pan an wile they is sizdin'  she asts if we know the secrit of  a happy marridge is in that there  skillet?  We ses we ain't heard that one  but she can tell us wile we. wash  sum Chilcotin dust .frum our  throats with a cold beer.  When them skillets cum new,  ses Missus Mac, they is rough an  they still has the tool marks an  they fight back fer a wile, jest the  same as she an Old Mac found  out.  The secrit, she ses, is heatin'  them gud an slow, so as the oil  can soak into them, becus if you  get them hotter'n hell it jest  leaves a big black scar.  Mac an her had sum real gud  fights the first few years, she ses,  an sum of them is still with her,  but wen them cum to a boil real  slow the oil sorta soaked in deep  an it is still there.  Pete asts her wot they wus  usin' fer oil an she ses it wus jest,  realizin' they wus hurtin' each  other an sayin' they wussorry.  There is one thing mote, she  ses.  Them skillets is real tough,  but they can break easy, like wen  Mac's old mare died an he went  inter the barn and staved fer a  day an a nite, wile she let him be.  Pete ses it seems it works out  real perfeck all arount an Missus  Mac ses no, becus them skillets  last almost forever wen you take  gud care of them, an wen she  ses it, she is lookin'. out back  where we put Old Mac so he cud  feel the sun wen it cum over the  Shelford Hills in the morning.  ndp   bookstore  In Lower Gibsons  ��� For Great Canadian and British Paperbacks ���  This Is a volunteer aefreustalni ng  group, serving your community since January 1973  Sunshine Coast Community  Resource Society  -ANNUAL MEETING-  Thursday, October 21st  7:30pm., Open Area  SECHELT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL  Speaker from: VancouverVolunteer  Action Resource Centre  -EVERYONE WELCOME-  J   COZY CORNER CAMERAS I  Have some  news ?

THE ANTT-INFL/mON PROGRAM  Where we are  and where we're going.  l.  After one year, the anti-inflation program is  doing what it set out to do.  The most important achievement has been  the drop in the inflation rate. A year ago,  consumer prices were rising at a rate of 10.6%.  By August 1976, that rate of increase had  dropped to 6.2%. This fall some unavoidable  increases in energy costs and municipal taxes  will affect the rate of inflation. In spite of this, the  first year target of an inflation rate of no more  than 8% will be met.  Increases in all forms of income-wages,  salaries, fees, profits, dividends-are also being  successfully restrained. On the average, prices  have gone up less than wages this year. This  means that most Canadians can cope a bit  better, we have more buying power than we had  before the program began.  This Guideline is designed to protect and  improve the real income of working Canadians,  while bringing down tiie rate of inflation.  All governments are restraining their  expenditures. The federal government is limiting  growth in its own spending to keep it in line with  the overall growth of the Canadian economy.  This means that every day hard choices must be  made to limit new programs and trim old ones.  These choices are painful. But they have to be  made if the government is to restrain its costs  and avoid contributing to inflation.  3.  2.  The goal of the second year of the anti-  inflation program is to bring inflation down even  further, to no more than 6%. This can be achieved  only if increases in everything slow down together.  In our kind of market economy, prices have  to be able to move up and down to some extent.  But the anti-inflation program does put an  effective restraint on prices by controlling profit  margins. In the second year, the price and profit  controls are being changed to make the rules  simpler and to apply restraint more fairly among  different companies. They also include important  incentives to encourage tiie investments the  country needs to make the economy grow and  create new jobs for Canadians. New investment  credits will make allowances for company profits  re-invested to boost production and productivity.  In the area of wages' and salaries, the  second year Guidelines limit increases to 6% as  a protection against price increases, with 2%  more added as a share of national productivity.  Nobody likes controls. Not the people  whose private decisions are affected by them.  And not the governments that have to enforce  them. But controls were and are needed, to  bring inflation down and to assure a growing   .  economy. The program will be terminated by the  end of 1978. Until it is ended, the government is  committed to making sure the controls work hard  to bring about a continuing reduction in the rate  of inflation.  Inflation has to be cut down to protect our  personal buying power, our savings and  pensions, and jobs for Canadians." If last year's  spiral of rising prices arid incomes had  continued, Canadian-made products would  soon be unable to compete in world markets.  Imports could easily undercut goods produced  and sold here at home. It's especially important  for us to keep our prices and costs competitive  with the United States, and on both counts the  U.S. is still doing better than we are; Finally,  inflation also hurts investment. And when  investment goes down, unemployment goes up.  After a year of controls, inflation has come  down. Progress has been made, in protecting  Canadian jobs and improving Canada's well- .  being. The success of the anti-inflation program  so far has depended a great deal on the cooperation of many Canadians. With continued  co-operation, we can all look forward to sharing  a more prosperous and growing economy.  I*  Government  of Canada  Gouvernement  du Canada  the antc- r  INFLATION  PROGRAM  AREVEW"  YEAR ONE C  A Coast News, October 12,1976  Airport  Editor:  Mr. Elmer Wall, writing in the  Peninsula Times September 29th,  is another plane lover who has  missed the intent of the so-called  Complainers of airplane nose.  One would' think that we  "idealists" who moved out of the  city to enjoy the quiet country  atmosphere, wish to force a  government edict to eliminate the  most modern and efficient  method of transportation in the  world. All we suggest is a comprehensive study as to the most  reasonable and considerate flight  pattern for planes landing and  taking off at the Gibsons-Sechelt  Airport.  Look at it this way; a single  plane, "the pilot enjoying the  thrill of the flight", can cause  noise stress to possibly 500 to  1000 residents. This is an astounding ratio: one happy, thrilled pilot, and 1000 distressed  residents.  Many articles are being written  by scientists and physicians on  the harmful effects of stress, and  the causes. They state that one of  the most harmful stress factors  is noise. We've all heard of noise  pollution. Ask any doctor and he  wil! tell you that stress is the  cause of dozens of physical and  mental ailments, and this is the  reason, for the increased studies  on the noise factor.  It amuses me to read Mr.  Wall's list of noise makers,  including rock bands. Is he  awakened at daybreak on a Saturday and Sunday all spring and  summer, with a rock band  blaring in his ear? I'm equally  sure the poor jack-hammer boys  don't begin their day at dawn on  the week-ends! I attribute the  dawn to dusk flights during the  week-ends mainly to the flying  schools that operated out of the  airport last spring and summer.  The fact remains that a rescue  plane is manna from heaven to  the lost or injured in the bush.  No one disputes this fact. But  this is not what vie are talking  about. The air-base, situated so  close to the residential areas is  the problem. Therefore, the takeoff and landing arrangements  should be such that the minimum  of discomfort affects as few as  possible. . Surely this consideration is of prime importance to  all concerned. I am not unaware  that MOT sets the rules for the  safety of the planes, on their  landings and take-offs, but let  us see if they cannot combine this  along with consideration for the  residents.  D.Daly  R.R. #1, Sechelt  Fish farm  Editor:  Talk about injustice! We have  a beautiful or maybe the word is  .tragic, example, of injustice right  here on the Sunshine Coast.  In Thursday's edition of the  Sun there appeared a little article  about Super, fish and what had  been accomplished at the Nanaimo Biological Station. - They had  just released several thousand  hand raised salmon and we were  told that this opens the door to  enable private fish farms to raise  their own stock and provide the  rapidly depleting, naturally  raised fish stocks with a new  source of supply.  The injustice arises when one  considers that a man, Mr. Alan  Meneely, was doing just, that, or  trying to do it, two years ago right  here on the Coast, but was so  tied, up in bureaucratic red tape  that they made it impossible for  him to continue. Reading the  story in the Sun was just like  reading a carbon copy of Mr.  Meneely's operation.  Here we are on the Sunshine  Coast with an 18% unemployment figure and when a guy tries  to introduce a new business-and  is prepared to spend a great deal  of his own money doing so, he  is given the royal run around and  put out of business simply  through lack of co-operation with  the Government powers that be,  with whom he had to work.  I am sure that we have not  heard the last of this, at least T  hope not, and in the meantime  the chinooks are jumping in die  bay in Earl's Cove with nowhere  to go to spawn and a man who  could help them is left standing  helplessly watching.  J. Hind Smith  Pub  Editor:  Regarding your artide - The  Past, The Present & The Pub.  There, are two sides to every  story. Granted, the new owners  have upgraded the inside of the  Dogwood Cafe - but it's the outside that concerns a lot of people.  There is a continual pile of dogs  one has to climb over (not to  . mention the feces coe continually  steps in) whether going into or  out of the Dogwood. If the Pub  is going to set up for the people of  the Lower End, can we expect to  see the same dogs and die usual  feces.  Perhaps we can even expect to  see strippers at the Pub as one of  the owners was looking after the  luncheon entertainment at die  Peninsula Hotel  a short while  Film society  by Keith Wallace  The opening up of the Pacific  Northwest is a rarely exploited  subject in films, and is the concern of the Kwahtahmoss Film'  Society's October 13th showing  of Robert Altaian's "McCabe and  Mrs. Miller".  We are swept into the challenging world of the building and  settling in of a small town near  Seattle (filming was done in West  Vancouver) at the turn, of the  century, and focus is on two  | characters; The small-time  I gambler McCabe (Warren  Beatty), and the business-like  opium smoking Madam (Julie  Christie) who join forces to establish a bordello. The venture  becomes quite successful with its  monopoly on the town, but  eventually competition mows in  and trouble erupts.  Equally important to the plot  and characters is the Historical  aspect. It is an excellent portrait  of the people who pioneered die  rugged west. The photography  is exquisite and a naturalness is  achieved with non-studio sound  and the golden lighting of coal  oil lamps.; There are also songs  by Leonard Cohen:  Hand made porcelain pendants  by Muriel Parfitt, Roberts Geek,  B.C.

Yourstruly  (Mrs.) Joan B. Rigby  Pubicity  mm@mffiB��m&  Here we go again, after a  wonderful turnout at our last  General Meeting held last Monday Oct. 4th and again at the Carpet Bowling on Thursday, Oct.7th  It was certainly gratifying to see  such a large number attending  both events, if this keeps up we  will have to put an addition onto  the Hall.  Different topics were discussed  at the General Meeting and progress was made. We are now  working on a Transportation  Committee and should have it  operating by the end of this  month. Quite a few new faces  have been seen at our meetings  since we opened up and more  have pledged to join. Let us all  get invloved in some way or  another. There is bound to be  something you can do. This  applies to our new members as  well as the regulars. Don't be  afraid to ask if there is anything  you can do to help out as we can  always find something for you.  Although you may be retired and  find that taking life easy is just  right for you, don't forget that  the novelty of retirement soon  wears out and when you have  nothing to do, time gets boring.  So come on and join the group,  get involved in the Carpet Bowl  ing, come out and play cribbage,  whist, Bridge etc. Tables are  there waiting to be used so come  along and use them, you will  find us a friendly bunch of souls  and very easy togetalong with.  We are holding our Fall Tea  and Bake Sale on Friday Oct. 29th  starting at 2:00 pm.- Admission is  50$ and I know' you will enjoy  yourselves. We have not as yet  decided on what date we are  going to have our Christmas  Dinner but that will be announced  later.  For anyone interested in renting, the Hall is available at  reasonable rates. For such occasions as Wedding receptions.  Bridge clubs, Dances or any other  occasion that may arise.  Our Garage Sale is going to  be held in the Hall on Sat. Nov.  13th, so if there is anything that  you don't need in your home,  bring it along to thesale, it will be  very welcome. If you cannot  bring it yourself you can contact  me at my home 886-2363 and  arrangements will be made to  pick it up.  With all this good weather we  are having, I am catching up on  my gardening which has been  sadly .neglected while we were  building the hall, but now that  is all behind Us, and we are well  on our way to building up the  different committees. I am sure  you will find it worthwhile to  at least come and visit with us-  and after one visit I am sure you  will come back.  We have a "Lady Carpenter"  in our Branch who is making a  tea wagon for the HaU. She is  our Recording Secretary and her  name is Mrs. Helen Raby, so  you can see that by her actions  she is more than a Secretary.  She is a Whirlwind and believe  me she has been a Tower of  Strength to me, as on many  awkward occasions she has  helped me out tremendously,  so all I can say Helen is may you  continue in your good work, and  I am sure the Members and myself will be truly grateful to you.  Halleluja and Glory Be our new  chairs have just arrived so come  on and try them out. I would  like to thank Ralph Lynds and  John Holloway for being so land,  coming to help me out jn getting  the chairs unloaded and set up.  Hope to see you at the Carpet  Bowling on next Thursday,  the Tea and Bazaar on Nov. 29th  and the General Meeting on Nov.  1st. That's all for this time,  good luck to you and may all your  days be happy.

The event  was the first of its kind held on the Peninsula.  Women's festival at Langdale  Something quite unusual and  important happened on this peninsula at the Elphinstone Camp  in Langdale this weekend, a  Woman's Festival. The full  year's work of its ten organisers  went into the making of this rai���  social event; rare because it was  absolutely created by women and  for women only. Three days cf  workshops and woman's movement related events such as all  kinds of information on sexuality,  general medical know-how, rape,  lesbianism, music, poetry, dance,  theatre, literature and various  forms of crafts.  It was all in all a very powerful  event of great cultural importance. Over 200 women from the  coast and the lower mainland  attended the festival which  started Friday afternoon and extended itself till Sunday afternoon. Full day care and first  aid facilities were available and  This is Your Life  Horoscope for the next week  By TRENT VARRO  ARIES - March 21  to April 20  The general situation of planets in  the sign of Leo and Virgo should  bring you great benefit. Start  going after what you really want  out of life. Success is just around  the corner.  TAURUS - April 21 to May 21  Taurus individuals would be wise  not to start new ventures during  the next couple of weeks. The  urge may be strong, but the stars  advise you to take a back seat and  wait.  GEMINI ��� May 22 to June 21  This is a fairly good time for  Gemini with one exception.  DON'T become involved in legal  action of any description if you  can help it. The planet's warn that  you haven't much chance of  winning until next spring.  CANCER - June 22 to July 22  The solar chart for Cancer may be  summed up quite easily by reading the advice for Gemini, and  then reversing it .completely.  Things are going for you now. but  it would be wise to clear up legal  matters before next April.  LEO   -   July   23   to   August   23  Things are starting to really  "swing" for Leo now. There's  a strong probability that something from "out of the past" will  turn up quite unexpectedly in  your favour.  VIRGO - August 24 to Sept. 22  This is truly a dynamic time for  Virgo. Astrologically, you've got  just about everything in the  zodiac going for you. You can  achieve wonders at this time.  LIBRA   ���   Sept   23  to Oct.   23  Much is aiding the sign of Libra  persons at this time. A party or a  happy meeting soon will give you  much pleasure. Be attentive to  your host.  SCORPIO - Oct. 24 to Nov. 22  Try not to let domestic troubles  bother you too much at this time.  There may be clashes of opinion  but if you remain calm and don't  lose your temper all should be  well shortly. Just sit back and  take it easy.  SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 Dec 21  The general chart for Sagittarius  is very much as it was last week,  only better! You have the "world  on a string" if you play your cards  right. Don't be hasty in decisions.  CAPRICORN - Dec. 22 Jan. 20  Any business deals, particularly  large financial transactions  should be cleared up between  now and next spring. After that  time, you may find financial  matters a little 'slow.' Be cautious  and have patience.  AQUARIUS - Jan. 21 - Feb. 18  If you are finding domestic or  social matters a little bewildering at the present, don't worry  much. Astrologically you're in a  'cloud bank' but remember  there's sunshine behind even the  darkest cloud. The silver lining  will come through.  PISCES - Feb. 19 to Mar. 20  Outside of a tendency to try and  get things done too fast, your  horoscope is good. It might be  wise to remember the old saying  "More haste, less speed" during  this period.  (Copyright 1976 by Trent Varro. All rights reserved.)  |  ti  II  II  I  5*?

Prison Doctor a compassionate book  PRISON DOCTOR  by Dr. Guy Richmond  Nunuga Publishing 1975 - $8.95.  by Peter Trower  In 1967, while serving a month  ��� in Oakalla prison on a trumped-  up marijuana charge, I had my  first and only meeting with Dr.  Guy Richmond. I entered his  office with considerable for-  boding, having been summoned  there without explanation from  the middle of a noon meal. It  was easy to have morbid thoughts  in that medieval place; I was  certain I'd flunked my chest  x-ray. I was considerably relieved to find that Dr. Richmond,  a spare, sad-faced man in his  sixties, only wanted to talk, He  queried me briefly about another  "notably-erratic, writer who had  done difficult time at Oakalla,  ���the previous year. I told him that  his guess as to what made this  character tick was as good as  mine. We discussed poetry  briefly and I was amazed to find  how knowledgable he was. As  I was leaving, he admonished me  , in a fatherly tone, to stay put of  such institutions from now on.  I assured him that I fully intended  to do this. He seemed like a  pretty good joe for aprisondoctor.  This impression was more than  corroborated last year with  the publication of Guy Richmond's revealing memoir about  his lengthy career in various  .penal institutions. PRISON  DOCTOR is a profoundly sad,  frequently shocking book about  jail life, seen through the eyescf  a compassionate and sympathetic  man. Forced to be present at  frequent floggings and hangings  during a good part of his career,  Dr. Richmond makes no secret cf  his lifelong revulsion at these  brutal rituals. Such harshly  punitive methods, he insists,  serve no civilized purpose; are  demeaning, barbaric and essentially self-defeating. He applauds  the trend toward smaller institutions and a breakdown of the fortress-style prisons that breed riots  by their very makeup. While he  fully admits that there is a hardcore of truly incorrigible convicts  who will always have to be kept  in right security, he believes  there is a far-vaster number who  are capable of being rehabilitated  through minimum-security wok-:  camps and parole.  Dr. Richmond's, career spans  almost forty years, commencing  at grim Dartmoor Prison in  England in 1930; through several  years in the Borstal System and  after a six-year stint in the Air-  Force and several years in Child  Guidance, he became the first  permanent doctor at Oakalla  Prison where he served from 1952  until, his retirement in. 1969.  During his seventeen year stint  at the Burnaby Prison Farm, he  was counselor and friend to  many of the disturbed, embittered men and women who came  under his care. It is a tribute to  his qualities both as a doctor and  a man, that a number of these ex-  inmates still keep in touch with  him.  PRISON DOCTOR is a well  written, perceptive and ultimately  hopeful book that should be read  by anyone who seeks a dear  understanding of the . present  prison problem. It should most  certainly be read by those whose  vituperations and cries for simplistic vengeance recently displayed plenty of reactionary  venom but very little understanding.

Parksville, B.C. - For three  weeks each spring, a small lake  in the Englishman River watershed on Vancouver Island is rimmed with the brilliant pink blossoms of wild rhododendrons  that may have inhabited the area  for more than 8,500years.  The rhododendrons, about a  half-acre of them, are the most  northwesterly naturally gene:  rated grove of the species in  North America and botanists  believe they may be the decen-  dants of a strain that somehow  survived the last'ice age when almost all of Vancouver Island was  covered with glaciation.  The profusion of blossoms  occurs annually at Rhododendron  Lake in MacMiilan Bloedel's  Northwest Bay logging division.  The area has been placed under a  company ecological reserve and  the lake is open to the public,  accessible by MB logging roads,  24 hours a day, seven days a  week. The rhododendrons flower  in late May and early June for two  to three weeks.  Ed Packee, silviculturist at  MB's Nanaimo forestry headquarters, believes. that rhododendrons once abounded thruout Vancouver Island, but were  virtually exterminated by the last  glaciation, which ended 85 to  90 centuries ago.  "We don't know how or why  the grove at Rhododendron Lake  survived the ice, or why the  rhododendrons have so far failed  to spread out of the area of the  lakeshore to other parts of the  island", said Packee.  "We're fairly sure that if this  relic community seeded in from  an ice-free area, the grove could  have been here for at least 8,500  years, and probably much  longer."  Packee added that a second  theory holds that a migrating  bird carried the orginal seed  north to Rhododendron Lake,  "but this does not account for  the small area colonized by rhododendrons on the island."  The silviculturist said the  rhododendrons' failure to move  out of the valley could be due to  any number of factors �� poor seed  quality, too much shade from  nearby mature timber stands,  adverse soil conditions, climato-  logical differences, or genetic  factors. No one really knows.  "We have noticed a little bit of  expansion in recent years with  some new growth on the hill  overlooking the lake, but nothing  that could be described as a major  expansion of the grove," said  Packee.  Packee said a number of other  plant species such as the sub-  alpine fire managed to endure the  ice age because they were growing at higher elevations in the  Vancouver Island mountains,  above the walls of ice.  But the rhododendrons are  nestled in a depression between  a steep cliff and a relatively flat  area, and they don't grow in alpine terrain.  "Today, trees and shrubs are  found growing on soil and rubble  lying on top of glacial ice in coastal Alaska," said Packee.  "Possibly the rhododendrons  did the same on the island, then  seeded the lakeshore as the ice  retreated."  What is known is that Vancouver Island has all the conditions that seem necessary for  growth of wild rhododendrons,  but for some reason the species  hasn't been able to make a comeback, other than at Rhododendron  Lake and at a smaller grove near  Port Renfrew.  There are wild rhododendrons  on Washington State's Olympic  Peninsula just a few miles south  of Vancouver Island, heavy  concentrations in the Washington  and Oregon forests and as far  south as the San Francisco Bay  area. Packee says there are no  noticeable differences between  the rhododendrons in the U.S.  Pacific Northwest and those at  Rhododendron Lake.  Rhododendrons are one species  of a plant family called Ericaeae,  which also includes such plants as  the Arbutus tree, cranberry,  huckleberry, Labrador Tea and  heather.  Most of these relatives are  found in abundance on the island,  including the area around Rhododendron Lake.  Packee noted that wild rhododendrons are a protected species  in B.C., and damaging or removing the plants is illegal.  Canadian cheese variety  Canadian cheddar cheese  needs no introduction, but have  you enjoyed the variety of flavors  and textures found in some of the  European type cheeses produced  in Canada?  There are so many variety or  "'gourmet" cheeses now made in  Canada you could try a different  one nearly every week. It's easy  to recognize the Canadian product because the package or  wrapper will be marked with the  name and location of the manufacturer.  A cheese tray is one good way  to introduce yourself, family or  guests to different varieties of  quality Canadian cheese.  Brick, which is sold today in  brick shape, is soft and creamy-  yellow inside and brown on the  surface. It's mild flavored, open-  textured, good for sandwiches,  snacks and with fruits.  Camembert is Creamy-white,  with a grey-white mold surface.  It has a creamy interior which  may be almost fluid depending on  the degree of ripeness. Its flavor  is mellow and pungent and adds a  distinctive note to acheese tray. '  Somewhat similar to mild  cheddar is Colby, a pale yellow,  mild flavored cheese. It comes in  the form of a cylinder and is  good both in sandwiches or on a  cheese tray.  One unripened cheese is cream  cheese, white, soft and creamy  with a mild flavor. Flavor variations are also available.  Gouda is easily recognized because of its ball shape, with  flattened top and bottom and red  waxed surface. It makes a colorful centerpiece for a cheese tray  and has a mild nut-like flavor.  Oka, with its russet colored  surface and creamy colored inside, has a full rich flavor and  odor. It's excellent with crackers  and a good accompaniment to  fruit.  It's important to select cheeses  with varied textures and flavors.  In case some guests are less  adventurous, it's always a good  idea to serve the ever-popular  medium cheddar as well. Most  varieties of cheese will be at their  best if set out at room temperature 30 minutes before saving  time. Cream cheeses though, are  best served cold.  Another delicious way of sampling various Canadian cheeses  is to use them in hers d'oeuvres.  Two interesting ideas from Food  Advisory Services, Agriculture  Canada are "Cheese Stuffed  Eggs" and "MiniatureTowers".  MINIATURE TOWERS  8 oz. cream cheese, softened  1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce  1/8 tsp. salt  1/8 tsp. pepper  12 slices bologna (Vi pound)  Blend cheese and seasonings  until smooth. Spread each of  3 slices of bologna with filliing  and stack. Top with slice of  bologna. Make two additional  towers with remaining bologna  and cheese mixture.   Chill 1 to  2 hours. Cut each tower in 16  wedges and garnish with dice of  olive or pickle.    Serve with a  toothpick. Makes48wedges.  CHEESE STUFFED EGGS  6 hard-cooked eggs  2 tbsp. butter, softened  2 tsp. mayonnaise  V* cup grated old cheddar cheese  Salt and pepper  Dash cayenne  Dash paprika  Cut eggs in halves lengthwise.  Remove egg yolks. Mash and  combine with butter and mayonnaise. Add cheese, salt, pepper  and cayenne and mix until  smooth. Stuff egg white halves.  Sprinkle with paprika.
