 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  XXX�� ,  \>    ;���:  " ��� SS"-X^z  nsliif&e  *-"'' Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Volume 30, Number 1  January 4,1977  Cultural Centre  TMrik Widicm for no  mm  Sechelt Indian Band hosted aget together of Sechelt Businessmen and the press on Tuesday, December 21st. Visiting dignitaries included Chief Simon Baker of Squamish and Senator  Guy Williams.  Chief Baker and Senator Williams were introduced by Sechelt  Band Manager Clarence Joe and took the opportunity afforded  by the occasion to introduce the assembled guests to the first in  a proposed series of Indian trading dollars and medallions which  are being distributed as a fund-raising program by the North  West Indian Cultural Society.  The "Indian Dollars" and Medallions have been struck for  the North West Indian Cultural Society as a method of raising  funds for the development of a cultural centre and Indian village.  The proposed complex will be forthe pursuance of the traditional  arts and crafts and a place for the sale and display of work.  Apart from the artistic aspects involved, the centre will also  serve as a repository of Indian history.  At the recent Sechelt Indian Band Open House Band Manager Clarence Simon Baker of Squamish introduce the first in a series of proposed  Joe, Chief Calvin Craigan and Senator Guy Williams listen to chief        Indian trading dollars and medallions.  These pieces have been struck  with unusual attention to detail.  The engraving has been done by  a master engraver and all are  superb examples ofthe art. The  dies were engraved directly from  original artwork supplied by leading Indian artists. Two years of  research went into their planning  in order to ensure historical  veracity. The first series depicts  on the obverse Chiefs Maquinna,  Mountain, Edenshaw, Mungo  Martin and Khahtsahlano. The  reverse honours Indian Artists  Joseph Smith, Norman Tait,  Lloyd Wadhams, Robert Davidson and Rose Sparrow. Each  Indian Dollar and Medallion will  be accompanied by biographies.  The Indian Dollar will be distributed province wide to department stores, hotels, motels,  supermarkets and specialty  stores. It has a currency value  of $1.00 expiring on May 31st,  1977.     The  medallions will be  ?Kbi&:^ New lear  new  struck in .999 fine silver and 24k  gold and will be available directly  from the North West Indian Cultural Society or from coin dealers.  The complex for which the  funds are being raised is visualized as a place that would not only  honour and commemorate the  Indian heritage, but be a living  centre of Indian arts, a place for  artist and craftsmen to work and  display and sell their work. It  is conceived as a total environment for the pursuing of present  skills within the'framework of a  resurgence of old skills. It will  be a gathering place for the tribs,  a meeting place, a place for the  celebration of the dance - a mini-  capital for the Tribes. Much of  the Indian population is young.  This centre will enable them to  recognize and identify with their  culture and to learn from example  and from the eldersof the tribes.  For the Pacific North West  Native Foundation, the centre will  'SiM^iiii  i The Coast News enters the new  year under, new management.  The new company when incorporated will be known as The  Glassford Press Ltd. in honour  of one of the pioneer families  of Gibsons, where the Coast  News office is located. The name  ofthe newspaper will not change.  Ian Corrance of Cozy Corner  Camera Shop will be the advertising manager and chief photographer. Corrance comes to his  new position after a varied background in several parts of Canada. Born in Inverness, Scotland,  in 1946, he came to Canada in  1964 and went to work for the  Hudson Bay Company in the high  Arctic as a Hudson Bay factor.  In that position he bought Eskimo  carvings and furs such as seal,  wolf, polar bear, Arctic fox. ,He  was also purchaser of narwhale  and walrus ivory. After leaving  the Arctic he attended flying  school in Calgary, worked as a  carnival barker in small towns in  British Columbia, worked in the  Okanagan vineyards, and spend  jsome time in the mines in Thompson, Manitoba. Here on the coast  ;he operated a fishing boat for  jsome time, fishing at various  |times for prawns, salmon, tuna,  and cod. For the past two years  he has been the principal photographer for the Coast News  and opened the first camera  store in.Gibsons in June, 1975.  The French fact in Canada is  recognized by the presence of  Manuane Laplante as bookkeep  er-receptionist in the front office,  through she does some photography and reporting and may  share a column from the distaff  side with contributor Joan  Haggerty. Laplante was born in  Montreal in 1951 and-spent a  year in the Applied Arts School  in Montreal which she attended  having graduated, from High  School on an accelerated program at the age of sixteen. She  first moved to British Columbia  in 1967 and spent four years in  the Okanagan where her two  children were born. She moved  to the Sunshine Coast in 1972  and besides child-rearing her  activities here have- included  almost two years as a respected  member of the Roberts . Creek  Volunteer Fire Department, four  years playing Santa Claus for the  Roberts Creek Play School -  see George Matthews dig on  the editorial page. Laplante also  appeared in starring roles with  The Driftwood Players, in Pool's  Paradise in 1974 and as Salome  in the play of that name by Oscar  Wilde in the Springof 1975.  The paper's layout man and  back-shop superintendent is  Henry Sum who was born in  Toronto in 1950. Sum moved to  the Coast in June of 1976 and  worked as lay-out man on the  Coast News until September of  that year. After a general secondary school education, Sum attended Community College, majoring in the visual arts and print-  making. After what he describes  as a "summer glance" at Europe,  Sum went to work as a design  apprentice with a packaging  manufacturer and at an advertising agency. Other jobs he has  held include a preps assembler  at a T.V. studio, a cook, a landscape gardener, an art gallery  concierge, and a layout artist  with Simpson-Sears catalogue  advertising.  The typesetter extraordinaire  is local girl Linda Moseley who  was born in New Westminster  in 1950 and first came to the coast  in 1964 with. her father Don  Hadden who operated the Home  Service Station in Sechelt.  Hadden is now with Sechelt  Agencies in real estate. Moseley  graduated from Vancouver City  College Business Course in 1968  and worked as a stenographer  for a Vancouver firm for a year  then took a year of art design at  The College of New Caledonia  in Prince George. She worked at  a fish camp on Langara Island in  the Queen Charlottes for a  summer and was the first woman  hired into the labour pool at  Port Mellon pulp mill since the  Second World War. Moseley was  the secretary of the Coast-Chil-  cotin federal, riding for Harry  Olaussen'while he was the federal  member of parliament. She has  travelled to Mexico and Europe  in the past two years. She  presently lives in a house she  built herself at ftll Farm in  Roberts Creek where she went to  live in  1970 and grew organic  vegetables and raised a wide  assortment of animals. ' Her  principle hobby is weaving. She  came to work with the Coast  News in Septemberof 1976.  John Burnside returns to the  Coast News as editor, a position  he occupied from September to  November of last year. He was  born in Ayrshire,. Scotland in  1938 and came to Canada in 1954.  Burnside went to work for the  Candian National Railways in  Montreal and studied shorthand  and typing at night school,  leaving that company in 19597  with the position of private secretary to an executive in the Headquarters office of the freight department. From September 1956  until August 1963 he attended Sir  George Williams University -  Evening Division, graduating  with a Bachelor of Arts Degree.  1959-60 saw him enjoying the  luxury of full time study at Macdonald College of Teaching,  McGill University. Burnside  taught in the publicschool system  for fifteen years in Montreal,  Dawson City in the Yukon, The  Crowsnest Pass of British Columbia and here at Elphinstone  Secondary School from 1969 to  1975. He was co-founder of the  Driftwood : Players drama club  locally and acted in and directed  many of their productions from  1969 to 1975.  The entire staff of the Coast  News looks forward to the opportunity to serve the communities  of this area for many years to  come.  -  The new team at the Coast News are  pictured by the big camera in the back  shop.

It will be a source of  pride for the Native Peoples and  a credit to the province of British  Columbia.  The principle of the coins  being distributed to raise funds  for this centre is based on their  having a currency value of one  dollar each. It should be treated  as any other one dollar until its  validity period expires on May  31st. 1977. The goal is to distribute the coins as change through  the floats of participating department stores, supermarkets and  groceries, hotels, motels, restaurants and specialty stores throughout the province. This project  ofthe North West Indian Cultural  Society has received the endorsement of all Native organizations  and has received the endorsement of the District Governor of  Lions International District 19A,  which encompasses a large portion ofthe province. Sponsorship  of this campaign on a local level  will be undertaken by Service  Clubs.  Fisheries  concerned  Fisheries Officer, Ray Kraft of  Pender Harbour has expressed  concern at the lack of co-operation his department has been getting   from   the   Department   of  Highways,  locally.     Kraft says  that   there   have  been   several  Trins^nces.jOf^hisJack c^eo-^pera??  7 tion recently^^tHei'mc^rl^nfc'  coming when the Department of  Highways crew under foreman  Oscar Hogue was clearing a road  allowance  in  the  Twin   Creeks  area.  According to Ray Kraft the  Department of Highways crew  under Hogue cleared right to the  edge of the stream causing the  gravel beds to be covered in  silt. In addition, the crew left  two felled trees blocking the  creek, a maple and a fir.  Kraft estimated that over one  hundred chum salmon used the  Twin Creeks creekbed for their  spawning this fall, laying thousands of eggs which are potentially commercial salmon. He fears  that silting ofthe gravel beds may  , already have had the effect of  preventing the eggs from hatching.  While the future of the salmon  spawn is the major concern, Kraft  also said that there is a possibility  that some resident cut-throat  trout might also have been adversely affected by the thoughtlessness of the Department of  Highways crew.  "Normally such a situation  would lead to prosecution", said -  Kraft, "but when you're dealing  with a Crown Corporation prosecution is very unlikely to be  attained."  At the time of going to press  the Coast News was not able to  contact the department of Highways Foreman Hogue for his comments on the allegations made  by the Fisheries Branch.

Hello Folks  This January of 1977 finds myself and  three partners embarked upon the business of bringing to the public of this  pleasant place their oldest community  newspaper.   The Coast News has been  serving the communities of this  coast  7 virtually non-stop since 1945, for twenty  years or so under the stewardship  of  .   Fred Cruice who brought to his task a  dedication, a kindliness and a sense of  responsibility   and   community   support  that we here will seek to emulate.   For  ���   my own part, though I'm sure that in  -  this regard I can presume to speak for  the five people who will be working together to bring you the Coast News each  week, I would say that there is no other  ;   paper anywhere in the world that I can  think of for which   I  would rather be  .   bending my energies.   It is a privilege  :   and a delight as --veil as a responsibility  and we  here accept the responsibility  and the opportunity witi. hopeful, optimistic hearts and in grand fettle.    We  aim to please, to inform and to entertain  and we hope that we will become a welcome addition to the lives of the people  on this part of the British Columbian  coast. And where else in the world would  you rather be?  With the afore-mentioned aim in mind,  we have already assembled a group of  regular contributors from this talent-  rich area who could walk with dignity  wherever prose is practiced. Peter  ilTrower will be gracing these pages with  his prose on a regular basis and introduces himself more than adequately iri-  h'is column Pages from a Life Log which  you will find on our Entertainments  page. Peter's province will lie mainly  in the field of movies and television  though when dealing with a writer of his  calibre and a mind as keen as his it would  be folly, editorially speaking, to place  restrictions in his path. I am sure that  you will find much to delight in following  Peter's prose path wherever it leads him.  Our regular book reviewer, John  Faustmann, has appeared in the pages of  the Coast News under my previous  stewardship. He is an old friend whom I  met in Montreal in 1967. He is a man of  considerable personal grace and wit, a  keen mind and a warm heart, all of which  qualities will be readily apparent in his  writing. A book reviewer he will be but  not only so. He too will be free to dabble  in music, theatre, films - whatever enthuses him. I know you will enjoy him.  New to the pages of the Coast News  this week is the writings of Joan Hagger-  ty of Roberts Creek. Joan is of that  seemingly rare species - a native born  British Columbian. She is also the author  of two books Please Miss, Can I Play God  and Daughters ofthe Moon. Her first  offering is an entertaining account of her  adventures this fall while on a reading  tour of remote schools and towns in  northern Manitoba, then her work will  be appearing on a semi-regular basis with  a column on anything at all from the  female point of view. Don't miss her.  Perhaps the sleeper in our little flock  of talented contributors will be George  Matthews, Head of the English Department at Elphinstone. George and I have  worked together many times in the past.  We co-founded the Driftwood Players  and worked together frequently - most  recently appearing as the ugly sisters in  that splendid piece of vigorous nonsense  Dick Whittington in the Sunshine Kingdom. George is a grand fellow to work  with and his prose will be a revelation  to all but his closest friends. He writes  with real grace and wit and his province  will be generally but not necessarily  politics. His column Slings and Arrows -  the literate will recognize the quotation  as being from the famous ' 'To be or not  to be" soliloquy in Hamlet - will appear  on the editorial page cheek by jowl -  my cheek, George' s j owl - with Musings. .  Nor in this plethora of talented columnists do we intend to overlook the re-  portorial aspects of our work. Bruce  Wilson of Gibsons will be joining us on a  regular basis covering the meetings of  the Regional Board; Ian Corrance will  continue his coverage of the Gibsons  Council; Manuane Laplante will be the  regular reporter of the meetings of the  Sechelt Council; and.yours truly will be  the School Board man. There will also  be coverage of human interest stories  and profiles of personalities of the coast.  When things get rolling we intend to  provide our coastal communities with a  newspaper which in quality and comprehensive coverage will take a back seat  to none on the coast.  Again, to one and all, we wish you a  peaceful and prosperous New Year. We  here at the Coast News are proud to be  a part of the coming year. We intend to  serve you well.  .. .from the files of Coast News  5YEARSAGO  The Brakstads in the Lower Bay report  the presence of a beautiful fully grown  trumpeter swan, keeping company with  40 mallards and being fed by their neighbours.

New Year's  Eve is the principal celebration  in Scotland where it is known, for  reasons which escape me entirely  as Hogmanay.  Generally, the first part of  the evening is spent at home with  the emphasis on reflection on  the year that is passing and  great personal and domestic  scrubbings so that the New Year  can be greeted with breathtaking  cleanliness. In my teens in Montreal as a gawkily introspective,'  shy Scots lad, I.was appalled ;  when I went to my first Newj^r  Year's Dance and discovered'^  that I was expected to cavort in  a paper hat and kiss total strangers. Needless to say as my  years increased my reservations  decreased and a kiss from a pretty  lady whether known or unknown  became less of a traumatic experience.  In   the   Scottish   Hogmanay,  however,  the domestic serenity  and  reflection  vanishes at  the   ;  stroke of midnight.  The whisky  '  bottles are cracked open - for the   ���  young fry there is home-made  non-alcoholic ginger wine which  has been secreted somewhere on   ���  the premises against premature   :  raids - and the traditional first-  footing starts.  "Am I your first foot, Missis?''  is the traditional question as the  visitors start arriving and interchanging visits - meaning of  course the first foot across the  threshold in the new year. The  ideal, that is the luckiest first  foot, is that belonging to a dark  haired man. Less fortunately  favoured gentlemen circumvent  their difficulties by-carrying a  lump of coal as well as their  bottle of whisky, thereby guaran-  Jolin Burnside  teeing themselves a welcome.  In a nation renowned justly  for its dour aloofness the transformation of Hogmanay is a remarkable thing. Everywhere in  the village the houses are ablaze  with lights and the simple rule  of thumb is, if you are out first-  footing, that if the lights are on  you go in and exchange the greetings of the occasion with the inhabitants. In every home there  is a party, often with the inhabitants of the place missing as the  night wears on, down the road or  across the street at another  ceilidh. Auld Scots sangs, merriment and laughter are the: order,  of the day until the flesh can  bear no more and the last weary  stragglers stumble home in broad  daylight to deal bravely with the  after effects of celebration.  Occasionally the odd celebrant  who has celebrated not wisely  but too well is retrieved from  under hedges or off of railway  tracks by their friends ac neighbours and returned to their own  abode.  My father was an abstemious  man who did not imbibe except  at Hogmanay and there seems to  be something especially comic  about those who drink very  seldom. On one occasion - he was  a dark haired man and a popular  man as a first foot and not for  his hair alone - my mother decided that he had been out first  footing altogether too long and  locked him out and went to bed.  She was and is a very sound  sleeper. The returning husband  in the cold hours of dawn, woebegone, tired and in his cups could  not effect an entrance nor wake  his sleeping wife. With a minimum of fuss he broke the window  and climbed into bed beside his  sleeping wife leaving her to find  Slings and Arrows  George Matthews  the means of his entrance when  she woke in the frigid, tireless  house in the morning.  On another occasion when he  had returned to gain entrance  by more conventional means and  was feeling somewhat self-  assertive he made the kind of  assertion of his position as head  of the house which will surely  be recognized by husbands everywhere. "I am," he thundered,  pounding on the table top, "the  head of this household." Then  turned to his wife and somewhat  spoiled the effect by adding  "Aren't I, Mary?" She used to  say that he was the head, .alright  but. that she was the. neck and  turned the head wherever she  would as long as she did it with  some gentleness.  Here in Gibsons I have been  blessed with the friendship of  those dear ladies Eileen Glassford and Nonie Hill whose mother  was from Campbelltown on the  Mull of Kintyre and for the past  seven Hogmanays we and a  flexible group of friends still  celebrate Hogmanay in the traditional fashion. There is the  circle of friends who feel at home  in their lovely little house at the  appropriately named Cosy  Corners, the firelight and the reflection on the year that's awa*.  Then there comes midnight and  the revelry, the song and perhaps  a wee bit too much of the whisky  for personal comfort. But it's  Hogmanay and it's once a year  and no one drives anywhere and  we welcome the new year basking  in the glow of firelight and friendship. A glance backward and a  hopeful look forward.  I hope that your Hogmanay  was as kindly and that the year  that is to come will bring you  Peace and Prosperity.  ���:*:-x*x<ws:*:*:;:*:%ra^  The Fiddler  for Buck Truck & Dr. Remorse  The earth keeps some vibration going  There in your heart, and that is you.  And if the people find you can fiddle,  Why, fiddle you must, for all your life.  What do you see, a harvest of clover?  Or a meadow to walkthrough to the river?

It may be said that a liberal  makes a lousy writer. What the  consumer of the small town newspaper wants is controversy, scandal and outrageous comment, not  anything so mundane and wishy  washy as a balanced opinion,  seeing both sides to the question  or compromise. Yes, give us the  Doug Collins, the Allan Fother-  inghams, the Patricia Youngs to  shake us out of our cosy little  biases. Who wants to know that  most policemen are nice guys,  that criminals have human rights  despite having lost their civil  rights or that generally speaking,  most people are gentle, kind and  generous when treated with dignity and respect. Boring stuff!  Why then does an editor like  Burnside ask this humble scribbler, ("Matthews! You're  nothing but a goldarn liberal")  to fill this space. All one can do  is shrug (like that more well  known Liberal) and find out  whether anyone will read this  stuff.  If you're not suffering from the  post-Christmas let down, skip  the next four paragraphs and  carry on.  Met a man at a party last week  who has been tallying his annual  "stress points". Stress points  have to do with what you've had  to put up with during the year.  You get 100 for a death in the  family, 120 for a divorce, 75 for  losing your job and so on. If  your stress points total 200 to  250 for the year you're probably  O.K. If they get over 350 you've  got a good chance of having a  serious case of chronic depression.    My friend's stress points  add up to over 450 which means  he starts making enquiries into  the Guiness Book of Records.  This man used to be, a rosy  cheeked, loquacious and jolly  "jock". Last week he was a pale,  quivering, shifty eyed neurotic.  This history of his past twelve  months would make a grown man  cry. To tell you about it would  make your problems seem so insignificant that it would probably  add to your stress point total.  The most notable feature of  this man was his inability to get  off the topic of how depressed  he was. Like the "Ancient  Mariner" he was driven to retell  his tale of misery to all who would  listen, and to some who wouldn't.  At a Christmas party this can be  somewhat dampening.  His mad, driven search for  some kind of ultimate wisdom  drove him finally to the last  guest, a wisened and apparently  senile old woman knitting her  life away quietly in a corner.  Seemingly unaware of his presence, the old woman clicked and  pearled her way through thirty  minutes of the depths of human  dispair as he "entertained" her.  When it was all over he looked  visibly releaved and rose to leave.  The old woman stopped knitting  for a moment and stopped him  with a red, knobby hand and said,  "Quit feeling so sorry for yourself you big ninny. Nobody  feels like that forever."  Thanks Mother Turns.  Getting away from the maudlin  sentimentality-to yon local ale  house to quaff a few cheery  pints. There it was, in all its  naked, arrogant splendor ���  Closed Until January 13-. Has  it come to this when our neighbourhood pub, that repository of  good cheer and fellowship, that  small island of tranquility and  peace, that bastion of sane and  intellegent intercourse has barred  its doors to its most faithful worshippers? A person can learn  to live with corrupt politicians,  can tolerate fraudulent bankers,  can even learn to cope with (God  forbid).. a ,female Santa Claus;  but when our. local , publican  leaves his patrons high and dry,  surely western civilization  shakes to its very foundations.  In Britain, where the pub is an  ancient, honoured and venerable  institution, the innkeeper's  licence would be investigated if  he were to close his doors for  more than twenty four hours.  In Gibsons, where a man seeking  the society of gentle companions  and a glass of beer must drive  ' his automobile oyer four miles  of the most lethal highway this  side of Montreal, we have our  pub closed for more than two  weeks.  Ah, but a fellow deserves a  holiday you say. Of course, but  surely a man of such high public  esteem and responsibility can  find a willing soul to doak himself briefly in the borrowed robes  of our publican. Your correspon-  dant knows at least a dozen fine  lads who would gladly chuck  job and family for the opportunity  to pass themselves off as a  legitimate purveyor of ales and  wines for two weeks.  No, it simply won't do. What  can a man do, who of an evening  would cast off the cares of this  world with a little innocent nose  pointing. He needs a brisk walk  in the crisp night air, a room filled  with the sounds of jolly companions, a cosy fire, and most of  all a long walk back to the bosom  of his family. To force him to  negotiate his automobile to his  favorite haunt is a sin. Such an  evening needs time for introspection, not dodging vehides or the  watchful eye of the local constabulary.  Those folks in lower Gibsons  who aspire to that highest of  callings, the community innkeepers, ought to take stock of  this appalling predicament and  appeal to our sovereign rulers  in Victoria, that the desires of  the masses are not being served  (so to speak).  A parting hurrah for our gallic  compatriots. The boring ministrations of the "anglo" press  about the "deep national significance" of Mr. Levesque's vie- '  tory have convinced those of us  who see our French Canadian  brothers as a necessary thread  in the Canadian fabric, that  nothing but good can come of it.  Which brings us back to the  liberal view, (take that Burnside),  and a prayer for editors, liberals,  innkeepers, teachers and rugby  players. May God take care of  them. Heaven knows they can't  take care of themselves. Clark writes ...  From the Back Porch  Coast News, January 4,1977.  I wus standing at the corner  waiting fer the lite to change,  when this dingbat aims up on a  motorcycle. He is a'winding it  up whilst he is waiting an the  noise coming frum wot these kids  call strate pipes is worser'n a  heifer wot's been eating green  alfalfa.  The Good Lord is with me  becus it quits running an he  wheels it into the curb. I goes  over an I ses you've got either  a stuck valve er you blew her rite  thru the tailpipe an he ses two  strokes ain't got valves Dad.  Well, sir, it luks like I got egg  on my face wich is a gud time fer ~  to say nuthin' an I take a good  look an shur as heck they ain't  got pushrods on this thing. There  is a lot of chrome an fancy trim-  mins' an the front end is sticken  up so's he is settin' on his tail  end, wich seems to be where  these young fellers got most of  their thinkin' machinery today, so  it figgers.  Anyhow, he is tinkering with  the enjine an ses he's outta  time an I ses yur darn rite...forty  yeres frum now wud suit me fine.  He is Iookin' at me an I figger  he might be smiling but you jest  can't tell, becus there ain't much  face showin* fer the whiskers.  I ast him if this monstrosity is  the result of a unfortunate liaison  between a thrashin' machine an  a John Deere tractor. He ses it  is a chopper an it don't mean a  damn thing to me', except fer  remindin' me I am due fer choppers purty soon an they are the  porcelain kind wot hurt jest as  much in the pocketbook as in the  face.  Anyways, I got to tellin' him  I had a bike when I wus a kid an  I paintid it with stripes an I used  to hang a tomater can frum the  handlebars and drop in sum firecrackers wich we got frum Wing  Chung's and when I went down  the main drag with them firecrackers poppin', the horses wud  go snortin' off in all direckshuns.  I figger they are still trying to  find all the turnips wich spillt  frum Charlie Sing's waggon wen  it turnt over goin' arount the  corner.  He is still Iookin' at me an he  ses tell me more Dad an I get the  feeling there mite be a smile  unner them whiskers, if ony you  cud find it.  So I ses that were sum bike an  they shur don't build 'em like  that no more. It musta had more  miles on it than you cud count,  becus it were about fourth hand  when I got it. He ses he will bet  it wus a thumper an wot wud it  do flat out?  I ses it shur was a thumper an  I will be my tail bone is still bent  frum hittin' pot holes. I aren't  too shur wot she wud do, but  figgerin' frum Camozzi's farm  downhill, I guess she wud hit a  good clip, so I added anuther  five miles an sed twenny five  going full tilt.  Well, sir, he looks at me sorta  queer fer a wile an then he ses  one of us is nuts an he has a gud  idea wich one it is.  I ses I knowd a feller onct whot  thought he wus Napoleon an he  wus dead shur of it, too.  Anyways, he has his leg over  the contrapshun an he ses the  ony thing he can figger is I musta  been running on one cylinder an  I ses wot cylinders? I tells him  this wus a CCM. Redbird with  one speed forward, wich you got  frum pushin' the pedals until  yur legs got shoved up to yur  armpits.  So he laffs an ses he figgers  motorbikes wus before my time  an I ses hell no, we had a Harley  in town wich had handle bars  like the horns on a Texas steer.  < It has a whistle bored into the  cylinder head an when you pullt  the chain she made a racket you  cud hear a mile away. ,;;  He has her idling purty good an  she is settin' there with the exhaust chucklin' quiet like an he's  got a funny look on his face andi'l  he ses the way he sees it I ain't  got much use for motorbikes or  them wot drive them an I ses yur  dang rite.  I ses they is runnin' arount  makin' a helluva noise an the kids  got long hair flyin' in the wind  wich put all the barbers on the  bread line an they ony got one  thing in common - they is all aller-  gicktowork. ���  -  So he ses it were nice talkin'  to me an jest to make shur he *'  got it rite, I had a bike paintid in ;;  stripes an I used to hang firecrackers frum it an scare horses  an there wus a Harley with a  fancy whistle an I ses you got it  dead rite. 7  Well, sir, he writes on a little 7  card an he give it to me an ses  "So wots new Dad?" and then he  is gone, with his hair flyin'  in  the wind.  I looks at the card an it ses he  is a Perfessor of History at the  University an when I turn it over-  it ses:  "Plus ca change, c'est toujours  la meme chose".  So I guess I run into one of-  them new immigrants wot don't  speak too gud.

AgnesLabonte  Resident  Sunshine Coast Community  Resource Society  Editor:  We wish to ask the assistance  of your readers with research we  are doing for a CBC-TV program  on attitudes towards Canadian  participation in the First World  War. We are particularly interested in contacting people with  first-hand,experience of dissent,  organized resistance, draft evasion or desertion in B. C or elsewhere in Canada.  Replies will be treated in confidence.  Editor:  Through your columns, I would  like to extend sincere thanks from  all of us at the B. C Division,  Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society, and our volunteers  concerned with the care of the  arthritis patients, for wonderful  help and support received during  the year.  I am requesting the privilege of  doing this through your paper  so readers can share in our appreciation.  As you will recall, C.A.R.S.  faced troubled times earlier this  year-arid as a result was forced  to close 10 treatment centres in  B. C. I am pleased to say that we  are now in a position to consider  alternate ways of bringing this  needed treatment to patients, and  in some cases have instigated a  regular travelling follow-up service which eminates from The  Arthritis Centre.  Our independent fund-raising  campaigns around B. C. have  shown an overall increase this  year of 16 percent for which we  are, indeed, grateful to those  British Columbians who canvass  on our behalf and to those who  answer our request for help.  Research programs continue in  all our departments as do programs of professional and public  education.  We do so very much appreciate  the support we receive from you.  Our thanks to aU your staff and  our wishes for a successful New  Year.  Editor:  Why are the workers in the  forestry industry laid off? They  didn't strike, though I keep  reading that unions are ruining  the country.  They aren't on a "slowdown".  Many have been "high balling"  along and working as many hours  as they could.  There wasn't a fire season.  They weren't snowed out.  They produced, and this is the  reward they get under capitalism.  Your house payments, car payments and other expenses don't  stopwhen your pay cheque stops.!  We could put an end to the  booms and busts if the workers  ran industry. We could have year  round employment and shorter  work weeks, and lower prices.  But this year, the shareholders  are drowning out the gentleman  with the white beard when they  go "Ho, Ho, Ho".  Happy Holidays.  Richard von Fuchs  Gourtenay  Mike Poole  Roberta McLeod  0  ftoducer, TV  Executive Director, C. A.R.S.  m  CBC, Box 4600  Vancouver, B. C  V6B4A2  l\J\J    y��3lS    3gO        By Fred Cruice, long time editor of the Coast News.  In what shape was the world one hundred years ago?  Well, early in the year a great rebellion broke out in.  Japan described as the final struggle between feudalism  and modern constitutional. government. Thousands  died. The result, a lowering of taxation and easing of  governmental attitudes.  Continued disorders in Turkish dominions gave Russia  an opportunity for interfering in Balkan territory and war  covered the area from late April to mid-September.  France had its troubles over a funeral. Composer  Felician David. He had expressed the desire to be buried  without religious ceremony. As a result the army took  no part in the funeral. This irked the populace, resulting  in the resignation of the Dufuare government. For the  remainder of the year political upheavals were the rule  along with scandals.  The United States had a political row. It was over the  disputed election of Rutherfold B. Hayes. By a vote of  eight Republicans to seven Democrats the Electoral  Commissiion declared for Hayes. Congress confirmed the  election of Hayes and Wheeler giving Hayes a one vote  majority over Tilden.  Next day the House of Representatives repudiated this  decision and declared Tilden and Hendricks were elected.  The deadlock was resolved when Tilden made a dignified  withdrawl.  On Feburary 12th, Bell exhibited his telephone at  Salem.   The first phone line appeared between Boston  and Somerville, three miles long. Elisha Gray filed for  his phone invention three hours after Bell. Thomas  Edison invented the phonograph.  Continuing in the United States the Sioux Indians  were defeated by General Miles and the Sioux came to  an end. Later in the northwest the Nez Perces of Idaho  turned down.a proposed reservation in Idaho and Oregon.  Chief Joseph set out with his tribe for Canada. Later the  band was turned back by General Miles in the Bear Paw  mountains.  A great railway strike caused troubles when one rail  line reduced wages by 10 percent. Riots followed with  strikers attacking soldiers at Pittsburg. Fires started with  the resulting damage estimated at $10,000,000. In the  general rioting which followed 32 people were killed.  At Chicago the United States cavalry were called in to  help the police.  In South Africa Britain announced the annexation of  Transvaal territory and the Queen of Madascar issued  proclamation for the total abolition of slavery.  The great book of the year was Tolstoy's novel Anna  Karenina.  In October the Turks lost their military hold on Armenia. The general situation, while resulting in terrific losses  for the Turks and Russians in other theatres of the war of  that year, resulted in the addressing of a circular note to  the European Powers imploring for mediation. Peace  which followed resulted in a general shakeup of the Balkan  states area.  Govt.

Pages from a  Life Log  by Peter Trower  As the Coast News after a rocky  year of ups and downs, sails  into 1977 with a new crew and a  sure hand at the helm, this sometime contributor undertakes his  first weekly column. I embark on  this new venture with enthusiasm  and a certain trepidation over  having to meet a relatively tight  and regular deadline. However,  I suspect I can muddle through.  The initial idea was for me to  review films and television. Over  the years, I have been an inver-  terate and unabashed fan of both  media. I was anxious to put this  fund of randomly-acquired expertise to some practical use.  I still propose to devote a good  number of my upcoming columns  to this endeavour.  However, I have ho intention  of devoting myself exclusively to  this theme. As a matter of fact,  I propose to run the gamut as  far as overall subject matter goes.  Some of my columns will be nostalgia-pieces drawn from various  periods of my life on the west  coast. Others will be character-  studies of various local personalities. There will be short historical  vignettes  and  humourous  sket  ches. And there will be a certain  amount of locally relevant poetry.  In short, I'm hewing to no set  limitations, stylewise or otherwise. I can only promise that I  will contrive to make it all entertaining.  For the purpose of this initial  column, I'll sketch in a brief  autobiography to give some idea  of my background. While considerable space has been devoted  to this matter before, the details  have frequently been exaggerated or inaccurate. Here is the  authorized version just to set the  record straight.  I was born at St. Leonards On  Sea, England in 1930. My father,  Stephen Trower, a test-pilot and  artist, was killed in a plane-  crash in 1935. My mother,  younger brother Chris and myself, then moved to her parent's  house in Islip near Oxford, where  we spent the next five years.  Attended the Dragon School in  Oxford during this period.  In July 1940, my mother, brother and myself, emigrated to  Canada for the duration of the  War.    Our ship was torpedoed  and sunk on its return journey.  Arriving in Vancouver, we stayed  some months with relatives.  Then my mother remarried and  we moved to Port Mellon. Her  husband, Trygg Iversen was  superintendent. M[y half-brother  Martin was born in 1942. During  my mother's confinement, Chris  and I were sent to board briefly  in Gibsons. My earliest memories of the place date back to this  period.  In 1944, Trygg Iversen was  drowned on a timber-cruise at  the head of Bute Inlet. After a  short stay in North Vancouver, we  came to Gibsons in 1945 and  lived here for the next three  years. Attended Elphinstone  during this period. In 1948, we  moved to Vancouver where financial circumstances forced both  Chris' and myself to quit school.  Chris went to the logging camps  and I followed him into this trade  about a year later. Worked  numerous camps from Sechelt  Inlet to the Charlottes.  1951 saw a return to Port Mellon. Here we undertook to homestead 60 acres of land adjoining  the mill-property that Trygg  Iversen had purchased during the  Depression. Stayed here under  primitive circumstances for the  next five years in a couple of  shacks and a stump-house. Worked at various logging and construction-jobs plus a brief stint  at the pulp mill. Ended cutting-  shakes on the property until 1956  when I moved up the Sound to  work at Woodfibre. Chris had  married and moved to Kitimat in  1954. On his insistence, I quit  Woodfibre and headed north to  join him there. Put in two grim  years at the Alcan smelter.  During this time, my mother sold  the  Port   Mellon  property  and  moved to Gibsons again with  Martin and her new husband,  Mike Cassin.  Reprieved from Kitimat by  receipt of a small inheritance,  both Chris and myself came bade  to Vancouver where I spend a  couple of years at the Vancouver  School of Art. Deciding I wanted  to be a writer instead, I quit the  Art School and lived on the  streets as a beatnik for three  years, learning what the bottom  of life was like.  Finally had a bellyful of poverty and returned to Gibsons in  1963. Went back to work in the  logging-camps after a seven-year  lapse. Get my teeth knocked out  with a choker. Continued to  write a lot of bad poems and a  few good ones. Quit woods in  1965 for the second time and  went surveying for three years.  Published first book Moving  Through The Mystery, in 1969.  When this failed to set the world  on fire, I hit the woods again for  the final time. Did this for two  more years.  Raincoast Chronicles came into  being in 1972 and I went to work  for Howard White as Associate  Editor. Have done this off and on  ever since in addition to various  freelancing stints. Regular contributor to B. C. Loggkig News  since January 1976. Published  two more books of poetry: Between the Sky and the SpHnters in  1974 and The Aides and Others  in 1976. Former book was made  into a CBC film in both French  and English. Couple of prose  books, another poetry collection  and possibly another logging film  in the works. Also various articles, stories, songs and this  column.  Which brings us more or less  up to date. Happy New Year.  The first of the great cornet players  by John Faustmann  Coming Through Slaughter  Michael Ondaatje  Anansi Press Ltd.  156 pp.  Like one of Ondaatje *s other  books. The Collected Works of  BiUy the Kid, this short novel is  a fictionalized account of a real  historical character. This is the  story of another outlaw, Buddy  Bolden, a black jazz musician who  lived in New Orleans at the turn  of the last century. Ondaatje  takes Bolden's life like one clear  high note, and around this  weaves a complicated, lyrical  song. He uses an odd, totally  individual style, combining remnants of reportage and interior  monologue to remold this forgotten character. Building on  interviews with old musicians  who knew Bolden, pictures faded  with time, and the transcripts of  the Louisiana State Hospital, the  author brings this man back to  life.  We make the rounds of the  New Orleans streets, looking for  that musical note. The paint  peels off the faded wooden walls,  and the coca-cola signs have  faded pink down in Storyville,  where the black people live.  Entering this world, we are not  aware of colour, or other outward  signs of difference, but going  unselfconsciously, we arrive at  Joseph's Shaving Parlor to' have  our first introduction.  "What he did too little of was  sleep and what he did too much of  was drink and many interpreted  his later crack-up as a morality  tale of a talent that debauched  itself. But his life at this time had  a fine and precise balance to it,  with a careful allotment of hours.  A barber, publisher of The  Cricket, a cornet player, good  husband and father, and an infamous man about town."  From here,, we follow his twisted, convoluted, compulsive life  like a tedious argument through  the back streets. We meet Webb,  his friend who is studying to be  a cop, and who will offer him his  secluded cabin to get away from  things. We meet Nora, the prostitute he married, and his children, whom he walks to school  each day, treating them like  adults, telling them all his funny  stories, learning songs from  them. And we meet Bellocq, the  crippled tiny photographer who  likes to take pictures of naked  prostitutes.        It   is    Bellocq's  picture that graces the cover of  the book. In it, six black musicians stand in front of what looks  to be a tent. Bolden, holding his  cornet in front of him, already  has that careful smile of a man  who has seen a little too much.  Buddy Bolden was a powerful  man. Years later, people who  heard him would recall that he  was loud, the loudest, and so  good. When he marched in  parades, the people blocks away  ~ could tell "that' it was Bolden  playing. They ran after him,  cheering, alive to all of his notes.  And perhaps it was this, this  adulation that drove him in the  paths it did. Following him, we  ' see him disappear, leaving his  wife and kids, moving in with  another couple, sharing the wife  with the husband. In his pocket  he carries the mouthpiece of his  cornet, the only remnant of liis  past, his ticket tohell.  All he has seen, all he has  felt, wells up in him. He had  flowed through the veins of the  city, completely swept away, as  a hero, adrift on their tide. Now  all this leaves him. He can no  longer care about any of it. He  knows all the stories, can predict  their endings, the movements of  the people around him. Beset  with predictability, life turns  empty and he flees to his isolated  cabin to escape. The song, with  its beginning, building, dimax,  and the rounding at the end,  drifts away, meaningless. He  has no more songs now, arid  writes to Webb:  "After breakfast I train.  Mouth and lips and breathing.  Excercises. Scales. For hours  till my jaws and stomach ache.  But no music or tune that I long  to play. Just the notes, can you  understand that? It is like perfecting 100 yard starts and stopping after the third yard and bade  again to the beginning."  He has been away from his old  life for two years now, and he  makes a try at going back. Nora  has taken a new husband now,  but he moves in anyway, and begins to resume the husk of his  old life. Bellocq has killed himself in a fire,. but the other old  friends, hearing he has returned,  come to visit. They bring him  bottles of his favourite rye, which  he no longer drinks, and they  visit, telling him stories he recognizes. He feels beyond all this  now, winking complacentiy at  his wife in secret. But the old  friends talk him into playing  again.   There will be a parade,  and a band that will be glad to  have him along.  Knowing he is at the edge, he  goes. He plays his cornet as they  march along, and at first he is  hesitant, just putting in enough  notes to sustain the rest of the  musicians. But as they progress,  Bolden becomes louder, and  stronger. A woman and a man  come out of the crowd and begin dancing wildly to the music.  Bolden watches the woman  ' mount into "a frenzy at the notes  he plays, and' soon he is playing  only for her. She catches everything he can throw, her body  twisting and moving in a primitive intensity that swallows his  music. Seeing her, he plays  louder, faster, with everything  inside him. Tiring, at the last,  they reach a circle in the streets,  and the woman, nearly spent,  looks at him with sly eyes, to say,  is that it? Is that all you got?  This look from her drives him on,  and on, and wrenches from him.  finally that one high long note he  has never reached before. It  is the final animal cry of a man  gone into madness, and the note  tears all the vocal chords in his  throat.  He ends up in the state mental  institution, cutting hair, not  speaking to anyone, never  playing his horn again. But  people still remember how he  played, those seventy years ago,  and one old man can still put  words to it:  "Then I hear Bolden's cornet,  very quiet, and I move across the  street, closer. There he is, relaxed back in a chair blowing that  silver softly, just above a'whisper... When he blows blues I  can see Lincoln Park with all the  sinners and whores shaking and  belly rubbing and the chicks  getting way down and slapping  themselves on the cheeks of their  behind. Then when he blows the  hymn I'm in my mother's church  with everybody humming. The  picture kept changing with the  music. It sounded like a battle  between the Good Lord and the  Devil. Something tells me to  listen and see who wins. If Bolden stops on the hymn, the Good  Lord wins. If he stops on the  blues, the Devil wins."  Buddy Bolden didn't stop on  blues or hymn. He played the  songs for everyone else, knowing  all those tunes. When this was  not enough, he played only the  isolated five notes that belonged  only to the music. Then, beyond  that, he reached one last time into  himself, and brought out his final  secret note. Hearing it, he went  mad, beyond all ears. Michael  Ondaatje has found a hero to  listen to, and put him in this book.  Reading it, we hear those old  songs one more time.  "Snake    rag." "Alligator  Hop." "If you don't shake, don't  get no cake." A man worth  knowing.

Special  Occasion,  Sunday at 5:05 p.m.  presents the first of four programs "A Bit of the Big Apple",  the emotion-packed story of the  dreams,   hard   work,   rewards,  tears, callousness, and glamour  in the saga of a Canadian musical  version of Hamlet from the Char-  lottetown Festival success to  a  Broadway flop.    Recorded as it  happened by those involved and  produced by Malka.   The tough  muscle   of   Broadway   and   the  hopeful innocence of Canada are  both  mirrored  in  this intimate  documentary.  This week the Broadway bandwagon begins to roll, chronicling  the assembling of the Canadian  musical. The glitter of Broadway  is in sight, tempersflare, tensions  rise and the first names appear on  the list of losers. But the mood is  hopeful at auditions, casting and  business meetings.  On Saturday evening at 7:05  p.m. CBC stage presents the first  play in a series of five comprising  the Kingforks Mythology by  James W. Nichol of Paris, Ontario. The characters and the  story are in part recollections  from childhood and partly fictional, beginning with the announcement on Christmas Eve  1870 of a marriage between  Mary MacDougall and John Purty  the founders of the dynasty  around which the plots for the  five plays evolve.

On Thursday,  Friday, and Saturday, January  6-8, Ray Boothroyd's theatre will  host the chilling tale ofthe supernatural, "The Omen", and Sunday through Wednesday, January  9-12, effect an entire change of  pace with the all-star comedy  "The Big Bus".  If "The Omen" isn't the most  frightening horror thriller since  "The Exorcist", then it certainly  qualifies as the best shocker of  1976. The supernatural element  of the David Seltzer screenplay is  based on the Book of Revelations  in the Bible, telling of the birth  of an Anti-Christ. Certainly the  starring names of Gregory Peck,  Lee Remick, David Warner, and  Billie Whitelaw merit attention,  and little Harvey Stevens is sure  to be talked about as the demon  child.  The contrasting feature which  follows "The Omen", called  "The Big Bus" is billed as the  first disaster moving where  everybody dies laughing. Among  the all-star cast are such names as  Jose Ferrer, Ruth Gordon, Larry  Hagman, Sally Kellerman and  Lynn Redgrave.  So there you have it: if your  taste runs to being hypnotized  and terrified by a masterfully  chilling horror film, "The Omen"  would appear to be made to  order; if you are the type that  would prefer' a belly-laugh or  two then perhaps "The Big Bus"  as an antidote to the chilling  supernatural. See you at the  movies.  Thurs.Frl. Sat.  Jan. 6, 7, 8.  8:00 pm  WARNING  AVERY  FRIGHTENING  FILM!

Coast News, January 4,1977.  Harmony Hall Happenings  by Jim Holt  Well here it is the end of  another year, Christmas is over  and the New Year is right on our  heels. We are looking forward to  a big night on New Years Eve in  our hall. The ladies under the  convenorship of Eva Oliver have  been working very hardto make it  a successful night and I hope they  will not be dissapointed in their  worthwhile efforts. This past  year has been a very progressive  year for our group, what with  getting the hall finished and  being able to hold all our events  in it, we are looking forward to  another good year in 1977.  I am counting on more of our  members getting involved in the  various functions we are planning  to have, as it is not fair to leave  everything to one special group to  do all the work, so get involved  folks and let it be known that  Harmony Branch #38 is second  to none. I feel that, now that our  membership is growing that the  more we have involved the better  it will be for all concerned.  We are planning to have open  Bingo every Thursday as soon as  we can get the equipment for it.  We have already got the permit  for it, so I am appealing to the  public as well as our members to  come out and support us in this  endeavour. We will have to start  small but will raise the prize  money as we go along. I don't  know just when we will be getting  started, but it will be in the very  near future.  I just noticed in the Vancouver  Sun recently about a young lady  showing off a rose in Vancouver,  well to advise all those interested,  we have all kinds of roses blooming in Gibsons as of this date,  December 31st, 1976, so how  about that. As I have said when  we do things on the Sunshine  Coast we do them in a big way.  The weather man has been very  good to us this year, we did not  have such a wonderful summer  but the fall was just perfect,  hence the beautiful roses.  I haven't got much in the way  of news this time. Carpet bowling  starts up again next Thursday,  January 6th so I hope to see a  1  /i/a.7  "WE'RE LIVING OFF FRED'S RETIREMENT INCOME.  I'M WORKING."  _  |o all our patrons and  friends ... May your New Year  be as wonderful as you are!  COASTAL TIRES  Ken and Sharen- Dave and Mel  Highway 101, Gibsons  good turnout then as you should  all be over the Holiday Season  by that time.  I would like to express my  heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to us having such a  wonderful year, so keep up the  good work folks, it is really appreciated. You have made me proud  to be your President and I hope  I will be able to cany on in the  coming year. With your help I  know we will be able to attain  the goals we are striving for. As  I have stated we have got the ball  rolling, so lets keep it rolling and  the only way we can do that is by  everybody getting involved in  the Happenings. There will  always be a job for you to do and  if there isn't we will make one.  Well I have a deadline to meet  so here's hoping to see you all  at the party. To all the members  of Harmony Branch #38, to the  general public, Village Council,  and all connected in the business  community, my wife Kay and I  wish you all a Bright, Happy,  Prosperous and Peaceful New  Year, and "Lang may your lum  reek".

BUDDYRUFF  Fishermen's compensation  New Workers' Compensation  Board regulations applicable to  the commercial fishing industry  have been approved by Cabinet  to take effect January 1, 1977,  Labour Minister Allan Williams  announced today.  To bring the fishing industry  into line with all other industries  covered by the Workers' Compensation Act, assessments paid  by commercial buyers of fish will  be subject to a maximum earnings figure for each fisherman.  For 1976 the limit has been  placed at $13,600. rising to  $15,600. in 1977. Previously  there was no limit on assessable  earnings.  The new regulations give responsibility for making assessment payments to the first commercial purchaser of a fishing  boat's catch instead of the final  commercial purchaser before the  consumer. The change is intended to make collections of compensation assessments more  equitable and administratively  workable.  Commercial fishermen are  subject to an assessment of $3.50  per $100. of earnings. Fishermen's earnings are defined as the  total value of fish sales less the  "boat share", or 60 per cent of  total sales where there is no  boat share.  Mr. Williams said no changes  have been made in compensation  coverage, which is mandatory for  all commercial fishermen except  for those who "rarely sell their ^  catch to commercial fish buyers  in B. C. Optional coverage is  available to these fishermen.  The complex provisions for  "associated vessel" and "associated employer" have proven  to be impractical and have been  eliminated. Responsibility for reporting injuries or industrial  diseases will rest solely with the  fishing boat owner or master and  the owner will be responsible for  compliance with safety regulations. This change is made so  that the responsible party will be  one with a direct knowledge of  an accident and direct power of  enforcement as opposed to an  employer by association who may  have little or no communication  with the injured fisherman, and  little control over the vessel.  Safety inspections of fishing  boats in British Columbia will  be carried out by federal Ministry  of Transport inspectors under  federal regulations. The Workers' Compensation Board will  not, therefore, put in place safety  regulations of its own.  Letters explaining the new  regulations are being mailed to  the Province's fishing industry by  the Workers' Compensation  Board, and a detailed booklet  will be available in the New Year.

Goodwin are  shown at work on the log house which is taking shape just  off Highway 101 in Roberts Creek. The house will even  tually be a two-story structure with 2,100 square feet  on the ground floor and 1,600 square feet on the second  story.  All writers aren't dead - Joan Haggerty  "Notice: TO ALL CANADIAN  WRITERS. The Manitoba Association of Teachers of English  is looking for Canadian writers  to participate in their 'Readings-  in-the-Schools Program' during  the 1976-77 school year. This program is designed to offer readings to students of all ages (kindergarten to Grade 12) in locations throughout the province of  Manitoba."  I would have answered this ad  had I seen it. Instead, they  call me. I am to join Robert  Kroetsch, (1969 winner of the  Governor General's Award for  Literature for his novel, The  Studhorse Man), in Winnipeg on  October 24th. "You will travel by  plane to The Pas, then on by  rented car to Cranberry Pbrtage,  Flin Hon, and Snow Lake...",  says the letter. We're expected  to talk with the students at some  length. I also learn that an outfit  . called Inter-Universities North  has received an O.K. from the  Canada Council to sponsor readings in the north so we'll pick up  a few of those. Eight readings  in four days, a heavy load.  Where, I think to myself as I  pack, is the equivalent program  in British Columbia? The Manitoba Arts Council is pumping  money into this program but no  Arts Council in my native province is sending me out to introduce  school kids to the notion that  writers are flesh and blood.  I'm looking forward to spending time with Bob Kroetsch.  I've read three of his novels:  Gone Indian, The Studhorse Man,  and Badlands. The first two are  part of his Out West trilogy, the  first being a book called The  Words of my Roaring. They are  all quest novels, spiritual and  georaphical journies into the unknown. In Gone Indian, his hero  travels into Edmonton for a trapper's festival (researched, I find  out, in The Pas); in Studhorse  Man we follow one Hazard  Lepage and his horse, Poseidon,  through the prairies looking for  worthy mares to service; in Badlands we take a trip down an Al-  bertan river in search of dinosaur  bones. The books are realistic  takes on the promise that can  never be reached and, at the  same time, surrealistic yarns.  Kroetsch must like travelling; he  couldn 't be going on this northern  milkrun for the glamour.  We meet at the airport in Winnipeg. He's a big man with  curly white hair and glasses,  more professorial than I would  have imagined. He drives me to  the organizer's house to get  primed and moneyed. We're  each handed a wad of cash for  expenses and sent back to the  airport, there to face a two hour  delay which we spend reading  one another's manuscripts, a de-  toured way of making contact.  We peer at each other curiously  over the tops of pages.  From the air, the landscape of  northern Manitoba appears  flooded. There're over 100,000  lakes, puddles and more puddles.  The treed areas look as if they'd  recently drained off into the  watered areas; Manitoba is two-  thirds water and one-third land.  It's spectacular.  We land in The Pas and are  hustled off to the high school.  Kroetsch tells the,kids that, when  he was a student, he used to  think you had to be dead to be  a writer. "You were meant to  contact tuberculosis at an early  age, scribble a few lyric lines,  and then pass away." He speaks  of growing up in a small town in  Alberta, looking in the mirror,  and finding no image. No cultural  image to help augment his sense  of self and place. So he set  about creating some. How peculiar it is, for instance, and what  does it say about Canadians that  our national emblem is a mount-  ie? The cop as mythic figure,  kroetsch is a writer who's committed to uninventing old mythologies and creating new ones  central to his prairie locale.  We discover as we go along  that Canadians often find that  notion uncomfortable: people can  do whatever they want in literature so long as it happens in faraway or imaginary places. Let  them do the unspeakable, but  let them do it in New York so the  reader can project his or her  den of sin out there. I pick up  his theme and remember out loud  my own teen-aged search for  good .books, shopping in the  Dunbar library for images of who  I might become. I found very  little to inspire my womanhood  outside of what Betty does on a  Double Date and I can't remember one book about a girl growing  up on our west coast. Even Anne  of Green Gables lived in the mysterious east.  So I read Grade 12 students in  three different towns a section  from my new novel called Bones  from my Wedding Dress. It's  about a girl growing up on a  place like Bowen Island and how  she keeps coming back and back  to the dancehall over the years,  relating to it in different ways.  I worry that the details-the songs  and the clothes���will throw them  off but hope that the descriptions  of the first time a boy kisses you  and puts his tongue in your  mouth; how it feels when you  can't introduce him to your  parents because he wiU wear that  kitsch gold gross around his  mouth and his ducktail's a shade  too greasy, will transcend the  style-changing props.  "We iron our hair for the first  booze cruise dance," I read.  Snickers.  "Do you iron your hair, do  people still do that?"  Embarassed nods.  "This," says Bob (holding up  a copy of his seed catalogue poem  soon to be published), is a "found  poem."  "What's a found poem?"  One lying right in front of you.  Printed instructions, for instance.  Bob found delight in the language  ofthe seed catalogue, the way the  manufacturers brag about the  remarkable plants that will grow  from their seeds. Perhaps the  phrasing in a nautical instruction  book: one ship chasing another on  the high seas is called ' 'the right  of hot pursuit". Poems might  be waiting in your very inkwell.  That's what eyes and ears are  for. The poet's mother said if  he doesn't, wash his ears, cabbages will grow out of them.  ' 'What does your mother say?''  "Potatoes."  After the reading, they come  up to hang out with us. The girls  -want^tQ; know where they can get  my book/:-I tell them it's not  published yet but, when it is,  I'll see they get some copies.  They have to go 500 miles to  Winnipeg to get books as it is;  there are no bookstores in any of  the towns we visit. The girls  tell me they want books about  themselves. The novel on the  Grade 12 curriculum this year is  Tess of the DTbervBes by  Thomas Hardy. For my part,  after being isolated for three  years working on a novel, it was  great to have their feedback. A  laugh, a hush, a waiting for the  next work: someone out there  helping flesh out my hope the  image will connect. I mentally  check off the chapter.  The next day we visit the Cree  Indian Reservation to buy some  beaded rabbit and sheepskin  lined moccasins, two pairs for  Bob's children and two for mine.  When I go into the back room  where a group of women are  sitting around a table stitching,  they notice the beading on the  back of. the black fur coat I'm  wearing. They come up to look  at it, I tell them it'sBedouin.  ' 'They have big beads there.''  From The Pas we drive about  fifty miles to Cranberry Pbrtage.  This is a much smaller town on  the edge of a lake;  there are  several fishing lodges and takeoff points to the northern lakes.  The school here is partially residential; students are brought .in  from villages all over the tundra.  Not only are there alot of fake  parkas but the motel we check  into is walled with that ubiquitous  plywood panelling; I haven't got  anything against plywood but  why groove it to look like boards?  A velvet matador on the wall.  The sleepy waitress brings breakfast.  Have I forgotten anything?"  "Have    I    forgotten    everything?"  She sits at a nearby table,  chain smoking while we eat eggs.  Her husband is a forest ranger.  Creeley's lines dash through my  mind: "She was the lovely  stranger/ who married the forest  ranger/ the duck and the dog/  and never was seen again." I  eat bacon. The waitress says  "Gary's got the kids eating  beaver now. They love it. But  the cat doesn't like moose."  continued on Page 11  The year-end statistics are in  and they confirm what most of  us suspected: this has been a  most peculiar year for the weather. Take for example the low  and high temperatures for the  year. One would be forgiven for  expecting the lowest temperatures for the year to be recorded  in December or January but in  actual fact the lowest temperature  recorded was minus six degrees  Centigrade last March 4th.

The Elves Christmas Fund  Drive was more than successful  this year. After filling and distributing one hundred and seven  hampers to underprivileged families on the Sunshine Coast, the  donations continued to pour in.  The extra cash was used to  purchase equipment for the hospital and for the Sunshine School.  The Elves presented to St. Mary's  Hospital the following: one  stand-up model blood pressure  cup; two adjustablestainless steel  stools. The message on the accompanying card said: "Derived  from funds donated to the Elves  by residents and service clubs on  the peninsula."  To the Sunshine School and  Elves donated one deluxe sixteen  chord Consolette Electric Organ.  The accompanying card expressed similar sentiments.

Despite the horrendously wet  summer the beautiful fall weather  brought the yearly rainfall  slightly below the fifteen year  average. The average rainfall is  1,358.4 millimetres or 53.48  inches. 1976 wound up with  1,226.6" millimetres or 48.29  inches. For 1975 the rainfall  figures were 1,435.9 millimetres  or 56.53 inches.  In December alone the rainfall  was 135.1 millimetres compared  to the sixteen year average of 220  millimetres which was also the  amount which fell on us in December 1975. December 1963  was the driest December recorded with only 72.1 millimetres.  The doubtful distinction of the  wettest December on record is  attributed to December 1972  when the skies opened to the  extent of dumping 325.0 millimetres ofthe liquid snow.

MWWUW/  lAFFof the WEEK  fTictfOc-rO  New  Horizons  Active  Perfect weather, dancing,  choral music and community  singing combined to make a  lovely afternoon at the Elphinstone New Horizons annual  Christmas Party on December  20th.  The talented students of Mrs.  J. Mill ward's School of Dancing  gave individual and group performances of their dancing skills  which delighted the audience.  This was followed by carol selections by the 'Sunshine Choristers'  under the able leadership of Mrs.  Jessie Cairns, a musical group  the Sunshine Coast can be proud  of. By special request, Mr. Walter James sang the Christmas  song '-"Nazareth" by Charles  Gounod. It was also a pleasure to  have Mrs. Bunny Supe, the  choir's pianist, accompanying  at the piano. To all those artists  we extend our gratitude for their  contributions to a happy and successful party.  About ninety sat down for refreshments at. the tables tastefully decorated for the occasion  by Mrs. Gordon and her helpers.  Each serviette was marked with a  number, and later corresponding  numbers were drawn from a tray  to determine the prize winners.  The 'Swags' were won by Harry  Purdie and Grace Banin; and the  'centres' by Wyn. Hornet, Bill  Grose, and Loretta Harrison.  Last but not least, many thanks  to all those members responsible  for stage decorations, the kitchen  staff under Mrs. Gwen Hicks and  all others who pitched in to make  the occasion a memorable one.  On Monday, January 10th, the  Happy Horizons will resume a  new round of activities providing  a relaxing diversion from home  routines, and a temporary refuge  from world tensions. While we  look to 1977 with new hopes, we  wonder whether the old hymn  should be sung to the parody:  'Man moves in a mysterious way,  His blunders toperfbrm.'  Another booklet has been  added to our library entitled  "The Frank Slide" a story relating the tragic events in 1903  when the side of Turtle Mountain  slid over the sleeping mining  town of Frank, Alberta, and the  final escape of seventeen trapped  miners to the surface. A fascinating story for the historically  minded.  continued from Page 7  In the afternoon, we repeat  yesterday's gig. We come alive  in the schools, relax in between.  I admire how Bob is with the  kids, teasing them, telling them  he's going to read them a bear  poem ("Mackenzie River: Nightfall" from The Stone HMnmer  Poems) and that he wants some  bear stories in return. Again;  my Val returns to the dancehall,  frames her eyes and the window-  pane with her hands and peers  into the dancehall for a glimpse  of her dream couple waltzing.  That summer, her girlfriend gets  an engagement ring from an older  guy. Her parents make her stop  seeing him; they tell her boyfriend that, if he's still interested,  he should call back in a year. The  chapter ends.  "Does he call back?" asks a  boy in the back row..  "I don't know."  The teacher interrupts. "Of  course the author knows, George,  but she wants you to read the  story to find out."  "No, I really don't. '.That  episode isn't continued."  "You see. You see," says  George, pointing atthe teacher.  "What do you think; do you  think he'd call back?"  "Naaaaw, he'd go out and look  for someone else.''  " He's right. -v    -  That night we're invited to the  English teacher's house for dinner before our evening reading.  Her   bearded   husband  teaches  biology.     They're working this  far north partly fen- the isolation  pay  and,  since they've. bought  land in the Gulf Islands and are  coming west when it's paid for,  are hungry for news about the  coast.     We   get  talking  about  Habitat and, still talking about.  Habitat, we put on our coats and  walk over to the school.   A few  other people join us. (We're competing    with    the    once-yearly  Rummage. Sale and a parents'  emergency   meeting  concerning  some    troublesome   kids.)       I  worked at Habitat Forum as a  press officer so I decide to bring  out  some  of the pictures  and  columns I did for the Straight and  make    that    rap    the   evening  reading.   I feel like an old-time  newsbearer travelling from town  to town given food and a night's  lodging in exchange for stories.  Have some  news?

FLOORCOVERINGS  NOW WITH TWO LOCATIONS:  HIGHWAY 101, GIBSONS.  886-7112  IN THE HEART OF SECHELT  885-3424 12.  Coast News, January 4,1977.  The Staff of Life  by Donna Gaulin  An apropos New Year's resolution after Christmas feasting is to  go on a diet. What an assortment  of diets there are tochoosefrom!  Besides the aesthetic problems  of overweight, obesity can also  be a health hazard. It is generally  and sadly agreed that being fat  affects social relationships and  unfortunately can be a factor  against landing a job.  I have spoken to women's  weight reducing groups and  inevitably find former hospitalized patients and nods of assent  when I list these medical problems: high blood pressure, heart  attacks, diabetes, strokes, digestive diseases and kidney involvements. And fat people who require surgery are certain to have  extra problems.  Far too many people desperately resort to what are called in  dietetics "fad diets" and diet  pills to lose weight. They also  take diuretics or water pills which  influence the water balance  mechanism of the kidney. Diet  aids depress the appetite and far  too often are in appealing candy  or cookie forms. And the effects  are only temporary.  The simple truth is that food  makes you fat especially certain  types of foods. Basically, if more  calories (or potential energy) are  ingested than are needed for  everyday body processes then  the excess is stored-as fat. If  less calories are eaten than are  required, then bodyfat is used for  the deficit of energy.  Obviously, exercise or activity  is crucial in a weight loss routine  not only to firm tissue which is  losing it's fatty framework but  to burn potential calories which  would be stored as fat.  Needless to say, a sensible  eating pattern combined with  proper activity will trim off the  pounds. Fad diets do not have  lasting effects and can, in fact,  be very dangerous.  The best way to lose weight is  by a slow progress. Keep in  mind that those extra pounds  arrived slowly (except the few  that still lurk from Christmas).  Nourishment from all the food  groups need still to be eaten  since all the nutrients in moderation are needed for various functions. Fruits, vegetables, low-fat  milk products, protein foods and  whole grains should be in balance. Obvious culprits such as  sweets and alcohol (which has  twice as many calories as star  ches) should be curtailed.  There are many, many ways of  arranging 1000 calories into a  days eating. How does this  sound? For breakfast: (which will  keep you from nibbling less  nourishing food later) Vi cup unsweetened fruit juke, one slice  of whole wheat toast* with diet  jam and one egg. Lunch could be  Vi cup of 2 percent milk, 2 ounces  of turkey, a vegetable, a salad  and an apple. Supper could be  2 ounces of corned beef, cabbage,  sliced tomato and sherbet with  milk if desired. And there is  still room left for fruit in the evening. Hardly a starvation diet.  So how are you going to slim  down? If you have seriously  resolved to lose pounds permanently, your goal should be two  pounds a week. Eat sensibly,  take care to have plenty of bulk  for good elimination and forget  those magazine quick loss diets.  It has been my counselling  experience that most overweight  people have already tried too  many of those diets without  lasting satisfactory results.  Take it slow and easy. And do  not tell anybody that you are on  a diet. Your new way of eating  should become a forever thing.  You will live longer.  SURE. 'CORONATION STREET1 . _  ON MONBASS AN1 WEDNESDAYS.
